 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  tine  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAK.  NELSON:   SATURDAY MORNING DECEMBER 8  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE FIRE DEPARTMENT WRAMLE  The  Suspended  Fire  Chief Before   the   Investigating  Committee   of   the   Council.  HE ADMITS HIS INEXPERIENCE BUT FINDS SYMPATHIZERS  The committee appointed to enquire into the charges preferred by  < mayor Houston against W. J.  Thompson, tlie suspended chief of  the fire department, spent .about an  hour yesterday afternoon in examining different members of tho bri-  *4. gade as to the manner in which it  was conducted.  W. A. Macdonald appeared for  Mr. Thompson, and before the  charge of certifying to incorrect  . payrolls was taken up, asked for a  definite charge. He asked that the  mayor specify some one payroll,  but this the mayor declined to do.  He said he would put in certain  payrolls and the committee could  ascertain whether they were irregular or not.  There was quite au argument upon this point, in the course of which  the mayor again explained the  charge really amounted to the contention that the city did not get  value for its fire department payrolls, in short, tliat men were allowed to go upon the payroll for  practice drills who did not attend  the practice, but who merely helped  to wash up in the fire hall after the  regular drills.  Alderman Arthur expressed  the  j opinion that the quickest way out  ���of the difficulty would be to let the  - investigation   proceed, aloug    tlie  lines suggested by the mayor.  .W. .T. Thompson was then called,  but, Mr. Macdonald raised an objection to his giving evidence before he knew of "what'particular  offence he was charged. Tq this objection lie was sustained b}* all the  members of the committee.  Thomas Li llio, who has been a  member of the brigade for over  two years, was then called. The*  chief point iu his evidence was that  he had never had any dispute with  the members of the mess over his  check for services in the brigade,  lie said it was never intimated to  him that he was not entitled to  pay for certain practices and that  he should turn it in to the others  to help pay the cook's wages. To'  Mr. Macdonald he said lie was  entitled to all the moneys he had  received for drills or practices.  J. J. Chambers was the second  witness. lie did not know of any  members-of the brigade who weie  allowed to go upon the payroll as  entitled to practice-pay who simply helped to wash .up in the fire  ==^^hall.===The^only==instaiice_,he=could-  recollect where a man came in late  was after a run to a stove-pipe fire  at the Club hotel. Ou this occasion  Jake Porter came into the fire  hall and asked where the fire  was. He was told that he had been  goose-egged, whicli he understood  to mean that Porter was top late to  go upon the payroll. The witness  was asked whether or not it was  the practice to allow tho; names of  men who did not attend ;tho practices to go upon the payroll for  washing up around the fire hall.  Although he was pressed ou this  .point for adefinite answer, he replied  that he could not say' one way or  the other; but ho emphatically  denied that he had told anyone that  such was the practice. Personally,  he said he had earned every dollar  that he had drawn for practices.  "William Pfeiffer, who was a member of the volunteer brigade and  later one of the paid men, was the  next witness. He had been discharged by the chief. He said he  did not know the reason but the  chief said it- was for refusing to  obey.orders. .As far as he could  make out it-was captain Steele who  discharged" him, as the chief discharged him after Steele told him  to do so. On the night that Jeffs  broke his leg he had been told by  the chief that there would be no  practice that night. He then left  the hall for dinner aud returned  about 7:30. When he came back  . captain Steele told him to hitch  up for practice. He replied that  there was to be no practice, but  when the call, which had been  arranged for, came from the  ��� Queen's hotel he hitched np and  ^Jrove    slowly    down    Josephine  street, as the street was dangerous  because of its being a sheet of ice.  The chief asked him why he came  so slowly, and he replied that it  was necessary because he. had no  brake on the ladder truck. This at  the time seemed satisfactory. The  chief then gave him some other orders when captain .Steele came up  and said that if he was chief he  would discharge any wan who  would not obey orders. Then the  chief told him to get off the truck  and took his place, and in driving  the truck the chief had a couple of  collisions and an upset, and fireman  Jeffs had his leg broken. This was  all he knew about his dismissal.  With respect to the practices, he  said the men, always tried to do  their best. When the brigade first  secured the ladder truck and horses  they were drilled by the. chief, but  afterwards the captains had charge,  lie knew little of the way the payrolls were made up, and he did not  get practice pay for simply washing up^at the fire hall.  Mr. Thompson was then called  and Mr. Macdonald waived his  right to object to his being called  without some specific charge. He  said that previous to joining the  Nelson brigade his only experience  consisted of three or four years'  service as a member of a volunteer  firo company at Lethbridge, iu  whicli the men were not paid. He  said he had instructed the men of  the Nelson brigade in their duties.  He denied that members of the  brigade were allowed practice pay  for simply washing-up in the hall.  He was positive upon this point.  With respect to the proxies, he said  that wheu members of the brigade  left the city they got proxies to  serve during their absence and the  practices were allowed to the men  who were away provided their sub-  stitutesauswered the call. Thesesub-  stitutes were not members of the  brigade, lie considered this a good  system. In connection with his  owu appointment, he said he was  chosen by the members of the  brigade as chief and approved of  by tlie council.  Cyril Archibald was called by the  committee. He said he did not  know of any men who were allowed  practice pay for merely working up  in the fire hall. When he was away  he got a man to act as a substitute.  The substitute was not a member  of the,volunteer brigade.  George W. Steele, who is senior  .captain in the brigade, gave some  .evidence^^as^jtcxJ'he^procedui'e^at  practice drills. After the run and  clean up of the apparatus the  roll was called, and from  this the names of the  men were put on the  roll. He had no knowledge of any  other names going upon the pay  roll. In cases of fire or where  there was a lot of hose laid in practices, practices were allowed in addition for the necessary work of  cleaning up afterwards. Practices  were also allowed for doing special  work at tlie fire hall. As an instance, men were allowed a practice  for taking one of the hose carts  apart, which took about two  hours' time. For work of this  nature the alarm was not sounded.  He believed that all the roll calls  were correct, but he had never  compared them Avith tho piy rolls.  He further said that he was not a  member of the mess and that he  knew nothing about how it was  managed.  P. J. Bradley was called to answer what fuel was used by the  mess, He said it was city fuel, but  they used it openly. He also said  he had never belonged to any other  fire department in which a mess  waa run, but his opinion was that  it was a good thiug for the city.  Asked if it was not as reasonable  for the city to supply the mess  with groceries as with fuel, he replied that the cost of the mess came  higher to the individuals in it than  if they boarded at hotels. It cost  them $25 a month, and one month  their pro rata was .$32.  Thompson said he had never been  brought to task but once by the  mayor for drinking in saloons when  on duty, and his counsel (Mr, Mac  donald) said he (Thompson) had as  much right to be drinking in a  saloon when on duty as the mayor  had.  The chairman declared tho investigation closed, and the committee adjourned.  Will the C. P. R. Build?  W. F. Tye, superintendent of construction on the 0. P. R. system,  has been in the city for a day or  two closing up the arrangements  for taking over the Balfour extension and consulting with the resident engineer, John G. Sullivan of  Trail, and "A. F. Procter of Nelson,  in regard to other matters. Mr.  Tye is reticent about the company's  program for building in this province next spring; but states that  lines are being surveyed at various  points. The C.P.Ml. crew which  was surveying in the Lardo country west of Trout Lake has finished  the line. It is reported that the  company will build their dock at  L��ardo this winter while .the lake is  at low water.  KOOTENAY'S GRAND OLD MAN  IS WHAT  JAMES  WILKS   CALLS  CHRIS.   rOLEY.

Hot .on Dewet's Trail.  London, December 7.���A dispatch  from general -'Kitchener, dated  Bloemfontein, December 7th, confirming the news from Aliwal North  that general Dewet's main force  was hard pressed, adds that general  Kuox captured the Krupp gun  which- Dewet abandoned near the  Caledon river and continued in pursuit of Dewet. The dispatch also  says that while the British were  handing over women at the request  of the Boers under a flag of truce  at Belfast yesterday, December 5th,  a force of one hundred Boers unsuccessfully attacked'a neighboring  infantry post.  The'- Independent Labor party  men of Nelson are not by any means  despondent over the results of the  election. Their candidate's showing at the polls was suilicient to indicate that in "a liieasure the  strength of the "party and the  Labor men believe the campaign  will prove invaluable as an object lesson. James Wilks,_ who is  recognized as the head push of the  Labor party in Nelson, voices the  sentiments of the rank and. file in  an interview as follows:  "We are naturally disappointed  at the defeat of our candidate,* bub  console ourselves on-having fulfilled  the undertaking -to give_ the professional politicians a surprise party  on election day." Although defeated,  Lbelieve that Christopher Foley is  today-the most popular and prominent and the strongest man in the  Southern British Columbia political  arena. ire has ": made what 1  believe is admitted''to be the  most remarkable c.lmpaign in provincial -politics,--;*- opposing on  the one hand candidate Galliher  backed by*the power and prestige  of the great Liberal' party in power  and fresh-"from their triumph of  November* 7,--while on the other  hand the efforts of candidate McKane's friends were stimulated by  the presencejn the constituency of  sir Charles " Tupper, Hon. Clark  "Wallace, E. G. Prior, Nicholas Flood  Davin and other" leading "lights of  the Conservative party, to say  nothing of the strenuous efforts and  frantic appeal-" oi* that matchless  champion of - the Couservati.ye cause  in Kootenay, mayor Goodeve'of  Rossland. 1 think Foley's friends  may well feel proud of the wonderful fight he put nil. -  "What militated against our  chances of winning was the- difficulty experienced in' getting our,  voters to the polls owing to the  clause iu the Franchise Act which  prevents registered voters from  casting their ballots iu any other  riding other than the one in whicli  they are registered. To show how  this worked I may say we had fully  170 solid Foley votes on the Nelson  list who were residing in the Slocan, Kast Kootenay or the Boundary and could not be brought into  Nelson to vote. Had these men  been able to vote where they were  working throughout the constituency of Yale-Cariboo, instead of  being restricted to one riding,  J^pley would probably have re-  "c^ivTdTTTiiTtjtji'i fc^i_r^tlre"nmini��Tg=  districts so large as to shut out  McKane and Galliher completely.  The most significant feature of the  whole contest was the strength developed by Foley in the mining  districts where the influence of  organized labor was active and  asserted itself. The whys and  wherefores, causes and cures of  this peculiar aspect of the struggle  will be food for thought and reflection on the part of the leaders of  the great parties.  "That Mr. Foley's friends stood  loyally by him during the fight is  self-evident and had he the time  and opportunity to properly stump  the northern and western parts of  the constituency, the returning  officer would have a different story  to tell on declaration day. Apparent defeats are not always real  defeats. The splendid support  accorded Mr. Foley in the fight  which closed on Thursday will do  more to promote and popularize the  principles he has so eloquently and  ably advocated and to stimulate  his friends and fellow, workmen to  further efforts in contests of a  similar character in the future than  could be accomplished by any other  means..  "We all lake off our hats to  Christopher Foley. He made a  great fight for a great cause and is  now no longer Rossland'.s but  Kootenay\s grand old man."  Why Kruger Was Turned Down  Bicrun, December 7.���-lu the  reichstag today, answering Herr  Rossicker's interpellation regarding  the reason Mr. Kruger had not been  received, but had been turned away  from the gates of Germany out of  regard for another power, contrary  to tlie feelings of the nation, the  minister for the interior replied  that it was comparatively easy for  irresponsible deputies to give expression to certain popular currents  of opinion, but a man occupying  the responsible position of chancellor of the German empire, who  was answerable not only for the  peace of- Germany, but also under  certain circumstances for the peace  of the world, could not allow himself to be influenced by such people  and continental waves of opinion.  For him there was but one course���  to preserve the peace, safety, welfare and interests of the fatherland.  NEWS fl!

OLD PROPERTY IN NELSON GAMP WILL WORK AGAIN  Special  Gono to the Boneyaru.  Rossland, December 7.���|  to The Tribune.]���The Eveliiug  Record, published by William K.

Riley   arid    Fred  Williamson have returned from a  three weeks' trip through the Vernon mining district.   In the course  of their trip they covered 200 miles  by horse, foot and water, examining  most of the mining properties worth  looking at. They brought back over  75 pounds of specimens, and Mr.  Riley has bonds and options on a  number of the choicest properties  in     the     district.      Among     the  points   visited   was   the   Morning  Glory mine, which was stocked by  Salvation   Army   people   and   the  shares   floated   to    the    tune   'of  .$130,000 among the members of tho  army in the east. After the shares  were exploited $30,000 was spent in  improvements and plant, but the  property was shut down a year ago  when litigation arose, and there is  no indication that work  will be resumed at any time in tlie near future.   Mining men  who have examined the Morning  Glm*y are of  opinion that with intelligent management the property could be put  on a  paying  basis.    A number  of  the showings  examined were promising, and with capital to demonstrate the merits of the claims it is  probable   several   good t properties  will be developed.  Fred Williamson is an old Nelson  man and was among the first  to get into the Kettle River  country two years ago. lie' is part  owner of the townsite of Wauchoep  and the discoverer of the Morgan  ���gronpon Monashee mountain, which  is said to be among the -best show-  -ings in the.district. The Morgan is  a gold proposition. The-principal  vein has three^ feet of arsenical iron  carrying free gold. Assays have  been had from $3 to-.'j'OvSO, and it is  thought that $o0 is not too great  an average of the whole vein.

Randolph E. Kishburn, mining  engineer of Nelson, is working the  Bachelor group on Twelve-mile  creek, three miles back from the  lake, on a bond, and the reports  from the propei ty are very favorable. The Bachelor is a gold proposition .and is owned by Thomas  Lake and other Sloaui City parties.  Sometime ago it was bonded at  $00,000, but the parties interested  disagreed over an extension of  time .and=the=deal=fell=throughr=Mr^  Fishburn took over the property  two months ago and started work  a month later by closing a contract  with T.

High assays have been  obtained at various points, but it is  estimated that an averago of the  whole vein will be $30. Reports  are to hand of a very favorable  nature, and the showing is improving consistently,  Adjoining the Bachelor is the  Get There Eli property owned by  Sandon parties. On this property pockets havo been struck  assaying as high as $S000. Work  was suspended recently for the  winter, but the understanding is  that the owners will proceed with  the work-in the spring.  Will Work Again in Spring.  A report is current that work  will be resumed on the' Starlight  property in the spring. The Starlight is one of the oldest properties  in the Nelson camp and with development will probably prove a  valuable asset. It is located on  Giveout creek, about a mile south  of the Athabasca, and is a gold and  copper proposition with a small  percentage of silver. The vein is a  strong ledge of quartz, a fine  sample of which can bo seen at the  office of the Exchequer Gold Alining  company on Baker street. Specimens from the Starlight have  assayed as high as 25 per cent copper and $10 in gold. The owners  believe tlie vein will average 10 per  cent copper, whieh in  itself  would  make   the   claim    very    valuable.  Some   .00   feet of work has been  done   on   tho  property up  to the  present, and this is to be added ' to ,  considerably next year.  The Alice Wagon Road.  Work  has  been   commenced  on  tlie wagon road  between  Creston"  and the Alice mine under bond to_  the York & Manchester Syndicate,  represented in British Columbia byf  T. G. Procter.    The Alice is  a  rich  lead and silver property on   which  development has been conducted in  au energetic manner for the  past,  few months.   A great drawback' to '  advanced   development   was    the'*-  lack   of   transportation    facilities-,  and this is now being overcome by  the building of* the road,  toward*  which   the   government has   contributed $500.   The shipping ore is*  so heavy   that an   average pack-  horse   could    barely   negotiate    a,"  single    sack,   but   with   the   road..  through ore can and  probably will  be shipped this winter. l.

Lon'don, December 7.���In tho  commons today Mv: Chamberlain,  replying to criticisms on South  African affairs, said ho had suggested to sir Alfred Milner Ibl o  issue of proclamations in English  Tfnd^jTTOir=Mttih*^foTtir~"the~gov~  ernment's intentions, whicli were  animated by no vindictiveuess  against the men inarms. The government thought it possible that  reasonable men should ask it to  iianie a day when a settled government could be granted. The government had laid down three objects: First, to end the guerrilla,  warfare. Ifc would - not surprise  him if tho Boers had destroyed  more farms than the English.  Never in history had a war been  waged with so much humanity.  Tho women had.svAy. been deportei  for their protection. The farm.  burning was greatly exaggerated.  Lord Roberts had only sanctioned  tho burning of farms as punishment for acts of complicity in rebellion or damage to the railroads.  The government sustained lord  Roberts absolutely. The government was bound to leave a large  discretion to the military. The  second object was that wheu pacification was accomplished a crown  government would be instituted.  The third object was ultimate self  government.  Tor the Canada Cup.

In the provincial election Iioss-  5 land polled 1103 votes to Nelson's  1H0." In the election on Thursday  Rossland polled 1003 and Nelson  only 853. Did 150 Conservatives,  disgusted at the antics of the self-  appointed newspaper organ of the  Ti_^C'onsei*vative_partyrstay"at���home-  and refuse to vote; or did the Con-  .* servatives and the Liberals .and the  Laborers scatter in order to make  showings afc such places as Kuskonook and Wardner and Moyie?  Tjjr poor old disgruntled Evening  'Miner is disgusted and in  sore distress.     It   was distrusted  by the  Conservatives,     ignored    by    the  faiberals, and shunned by  the   fn-  ���..depeiidei .-^Labo!*--**'**rty* - - J t did not  get a dollar out of  the  campaign,  although it had hoped  to  rehabilitate its exchequer  through  drafts  on   the   treasurers   of   all   three  \     parties.    The   Conservative party  ,     had no funds and fought for glory.  iThe "Liberal  party was  poor and  ;"    fought for the  future.    The  Independent' Labor party was without  funds and fought for principles.,  lb  is sad to hear   the plaintive wails  that go up from the poor old derelict) when no one is even willing to J  throw it a clothes line to help keep  ifc from drifting into oblivion.  The Record, a paper whose first  two issues were printed at Colville,  Washington, in March, 1895, and  whose subsequent issues have been  printed at Rossland, is no more.  For over a year past the Record  has been printed as an afternoon  daily, but it opposed tlie eight-hour  day in metalliferous mines and it  ���jvas   boycotted  by the   men  who  work in the mines. The boycott  probably did not kill it, but only  hastened' the end. The truth if**,  there is no money in running daily  newspapers in -Kootonay, and the  owner of the Record did not happen to have a large bank account in  Montana on which to draw. Rossland has a morning paper that  covers the news field of the country  tributary to that town, and covers  it well. If it gets all the support  and all the patronage than can  possibly bo given it, the return will  only be a fair one on the capital invested. There is no room in any  town in Kootenay for two d.iily  papers. To keep two alive . is too  great a tax on the business men of  the towns.  Tin*-  ~es~  investigation     into     the  "preferred against- W."  ".IT  Thompson, the suspended chief of  the fire department,  showed  two  things .   clearly.     One���that     the  members of' the   committee   weie  not in sympathy with the  effort  that is being  made to show  that  Thompson had neglected his duties,  that lie was incompetent, and  tliat  ho had no control over the members  of the fire brigade    Tho other was  that members of the brigade who  had ropcatedly in private declared  that man were drawing pay and not  earning it, could swallow all  these  declarations when  placed  on  oath  on tlie  witness-stand.     Thompson  admitted that the city was in grave  danger if a fire  should  break  out  when the reservoir was empty, but  claimed that as the reservoir was a  block or two outside the city limits  it was not a part of his duties as  water commissioner to pay any attention to it whatever.     As fire inspector he is required to see that no  stovepipesarealiowed tornnthrongh  roofs, 3ret he admitted  to knowing  that stovepipes are allowed to'run  through roofs of many buildings in  some of the most dangerous blocks  iu  the  city.    As   to   other   blocks  where the same state of affair** exist, he quibbled, and said as they  Avere on  tho railway right-of-way  or to the north of it, they were not  in the city limits.    He claimed-that  he could not get a copy of tlie fire  bylaw, but admitted that the  bylaw after passage and adoption  had been amended to meet lus  views. He admitted that all his  experience as a lire lighter before  joining the Nelson department Avas  gained avIumi a member of a volunteer fire company in the town of  l_etli bridge, Alberta. He claimed  that allowing members of the brigade to draw pay Avheh represented  at practices by proxies who Avere  not members of the brigade aviis a  good thing for,tho dep.'irtment. It  was admitted that at practice  drills tho captains and not the  chief instructed the men, and that  men wore dismissed on the order of  these captains. It ..was also admitted that there was no regular  Avay in Avhich payment was "made  for practices; that for performing  different duties at the fire hall,  for which regular alarms had not  been sent in, some of the men were  paid the same as if they had attended regular practice-. Jfc Avas  also admitted that the little "family  compact" that had been formed in  the department and0 Avhich mess in  the fire hall used the city's fuel for  carrying on their private boarding-house. Tho suspended chief  is a member of this mess,  as are a number of men  who are carrying on regular business pursuits in the city. And.notwithstanding all this, there are  members of the council who believe that mayor Houston has disgraced the eity by suspending from  office and preferring charges against  the late chief of the' Tire"clepart-  ment. What do the people think  about it? They are almost unanimously in favor of a paid department in charge of an experienced  and capable fireman. Nelson is' ho  longer a village, and it is absurd, to  expect that good results, either in  fighting fire or in the purchase of  fire-fighting apparatus and supplies,  can be obtained from a fire department in charge, of a village fireman.

ON   MUNICIPAL   POLITICS  An Open Letter to Laboring Men.  Dear Dan:    Tn the prolonged  ex-  (���itoinent of u long-drawn ont   Dominion election  contest, there  hits  lieen a disposition on j'onr  part  to  lose sight of the  proximity oi'  tlio  municipal   elections,    and   oi"   the  more important local interests that  -��(   ��re staked upon the result of the  '-'municipal polling.   The  time is a  critical one iu our city's formation.  Foundations for its future are being  laid, and  if   the narrow, self-  seeking,  orthodox   element   is   allowed to  control  our  civic affairs  for even one year, we shall be thrust  deeply into the mire of conservatism that is clogging the  wheels  of  progress in the east.    We  have, as  yet, no precedent of prejudice  lo  overcome, and may therefore make  > for ourselves what manner of local  government we will.  There is a man in Nelson���possibly two of them���who believes  tliat God meant yon to spend your  energies in arduous toil for the en-  richmentof his elect self and family,  and if you suffer that man to stand  in the place of godfather to this  . precocious infant city of ours, you  must siifl'er the consequences in a  hereafter that is not as distant as  hell by a long -ways. But, if you  want municipal.ownership of pub-  X'c .utilities, tho abolition of the  contract system of doing public  works, the protection of labor and*  the elevation of the laboring man,  or* any other good tiling, present or  to come, you may secure them now,  without** revolution or - resistance,"  by placing at tho head of civ.'c  affairs men who are public-spirited  and progrsssive, men of conviction  and courage, men of brains, and  brawn, men of genius if you can,  bat men of common sense and a  sense of justice anyway. Wo need  a man���not a figure-head���at the  helm. An odd putty-head around  tlie table matters little if it be  moulded aright by the strong hand  that wields the veto. If our present  mayor refuses re-election, can yon  put your fin gov on the man who  will bring to a successful conclusion  the affairs, troublous and otherwise, that are now occupying the  civic mind? Jf you can, Dan, it is  time you clapped your digit upon  that significant being.

These aro tho sentiments of  Georgo L. Hart, an enthusiastic  member of tho "Worcester (ftJassa-  chussetts) County Beekeepers' As-  s )ciation. Mr. Hart does not speak  from ;hearsay or belief, and not  from*''the brief experience of a few  months or even a year. Tho testimonial of a man who has tried two  bottles and thinks his mixture the  best that ever was palls besido the  test which Mr. If art lias mado and  the.cahn assurance with which ho  makes claim for his beloved bees.  Speaking to a  reporter, ho  said:  "I know what J am   fcalkiug about  when I say that there  is  no  medicine on earth  like tlio sting  of a  bee. This is no fad with mo, lightly  picked up and ranted about for a  time, to be exchanged for some new  whim when the lit strikes rae, as is  the case witli the patent medicine  fiend.   It is more than twenty-five  years since I found out what a blessing to suffering mankind the bee  sting can be, and for twenty-five  years I have been au almost constant patient of my little physicians.  "It took me in the wrist one day,  and though I was in pain  i went  from home and visited a man  who  had   a couple  of   colonies   on his  place.    It was swarming  time  and  the little follows wero not in the  best of humor.    I  was  a stranger  and they received my presence in a  way T shall never forget.    My  face  was covered; but when one  fellow  got on my hand the others came in  a cluster and they dug in hard and  deep.    1 was d pretty  sight.    Both  hands swelled up   to   twice their  size, but when the pain of the bees'  sting died away I noticed that the  rheumatism was   gone.    It   didn't  come back for .a good  time, and  it  .at last struck me that perhaps  the  bees had something to do with it.  " 1 thought it was worth the experiment, and the next time 1 had  a bad attack of rheumatism 1 Avent  over to my neighbor's and allowed  myself to bo stung in the same way*  again. When the thing worked  a second timo I labeled it in my  mind a cure. J bought a colony for  myself, and from that day to this  I have never been without thera. J  use the greatest care wheu I take  my medicine. I cover my face up  with tho ordinary beekeeper's veil.  D.lt. Wilkic,General Manager.  K. Hay, Inspector.  Nelson llranch���Burns Block, 221 Bakor Street  J. M. LAY. Manag..  It i? n ��t that I would object ti a  sting ihcre any more than 1 would  on any other part of the body, but  I wc nld not care to bo stung on the  lips and have a swollen mouth, and  a sting in tho eye might blind me,  while one immediately near would,  I suppose, swell mo up so that for a  time I couldn't see. So 1 take the  siiugs always on my lunds, where  the swelling is little and the discomfort and inconvenience are  nothing.  "I not only have lhe proof that  be_3' stings have done me good, but  f have the absolute proof that they  are necessary to me to keep mo  from   rheumatism.     1   tested  this.  Some years   ago   1   begun to put  some belief in tho talk of my neighbors, that perhaps   I   was   doing  something unnecessary, and that I  might be taking my medicine and  having a cure all to myself when  there was not a tracs of rheumatism   in   me.       Everything  went  a'ong all right for a year, but in  the second the old.twinges caire  back,    T   paid   little   attentfon  to  this till  I was laid  up once more  and began to suffer as I had in the  years before I made my discovery]  "There was only one thing to c'o  and I did it.   T tried the old cm e  and it fixed me up in a short time,  just as it did before.   You may depend upon it that I have never neglected   my   bees and bee   stings  since."  Surpassing*  Display in  Fall Suitings  it is time you staked your claim  and got it recorded in the minds of  the people.  The man who will best serve  your interest, either as mayor or  councillor, is probably not on the  still hunt for office; he will need to  be sought out, brought out and  elected. Are you doing anything  towards the desired end, or are you  leaving the destiny of this city of  opportunities to bo worked out by  the ward politician and the lean  horse who desires a chance to feed  at tho public crib '<*  If you aro too busy spending the  two dollars and a half a\day ensured to you by the conditions of  life in a country of undeveloped re:  sources to make a single effort  towards tho permanent establishment of yourself as a man and a  citizen, you, perhaps, deserve the  decree of destitute old age that  is written in the stars for every  son of toil who is content, with less  than justice for himself and his  brethren.
