IMPROVEMENTS OF DEPOT AND YARDS NEARLY FINISHED  ill  m  **-  Substantial promotion in the 0.  P. It. service has come to F. W.  Peters of this city. He has been  advanced to the post at Vancouver  o vacated by Allan Cameron, who resigned to take tb,e position of general traffic manager on the Oregon  Railway & Navigation Company  with headquarters at Hong Kong.  Mr. Peters .has held tho position of  general freight agent of the C. P.  R. in the Kootenay and Boundary  district for four years and is a well-  known   and   popular  official.    Mr.  ��� Peters is president of the street car  company. He leaves shortly to assume the duties of his new aud important position at the coast. No  announcement has been . made as  yet regarding his successor.  Remarkable Freight Business.  The barges which arrived in  Nelson on Saturday night completed a remarkable record in the  history of local freight business.  Their loads brought up the total of  cars from the Landing in eight consecutive days to 300. This con-  ��� stitutes the record.for Nelson and  probably exceeds in magnitude any  similar performance at any one  divisional point on the road outside terminals and may be regarded  as phenomenal in view of .the long  water haul between Nelson and  Kootenay Lauding. The number  of cars handled would, if strung  together, make a train about two  and a quarter miles long, and require the services of 20 locomotives.  To move this string about 40 miles  by water and handle the cars at  Nelsou in a yard undergoing radical  changes required clever management and tall rustling, yet it was  accomplished in eight days without  confusion, accident or delay. Tho  business from the coast and ore  shipments from the Slocan have  been lively and will swell tho number of cars over the 400 mark.  In the Railroad Yards.  The C. P. R. yards are rapidly becoming reorganized, in fact the  change in the location of the tracks  is now so far advauced that only  those familial* with the previous  arrangement are in a position to  judge of what has been accomplished. The constant tearing up  of old tracks and the construction  of new ones has led to a peculiar  condition of affairs and caused  several small accidents. The  "-.switchineir^who-have worked-any-  length of time in the yards become  ho familiar with the switches that  it becomes a second nature to them  and switching is often done half  by instinct. Under ordinary circumstances this is desirable, but  when a yard is being changed  completely it gives rise to undesirable occurrences. The switchmen  stick to the familiar order of things  regardless of the rearrangement,  and so strong is the instinct that  several switches have been spiked  to the ties and cannot bo removed.  The spikes will not be removed until tho yard crew is familial* with  the new order of things. The fact  is not discreditable to the yardmen,  however, who are recognized as  among the best men on the road,  but is regarded as an object lesson  of the disposition on the part of  l��U9y men to follow the, beaten  .path.  The New Station Buildings.  . The new buildings at the C. P. R.  deport are well on to completion  and it seems likely that they will  be ready for occupation by .Tanuary  as scheduled. The passenger and  freight buildings are receiving finishing touches which will take all  of December to finish. The roundhouse is practically completed and  is in daily use. The roofers are applying the tar and gravel to the  top of the building aud this done  only the minor matters of cleaning  up, ete., will be necessary. The  coal packets west of the turntable  have been at a standstill for several  weeks, but a small force of men is  now engaged in laying the superstructure to jg^vry the rails along  the top of the piles. At present the  locomotives are coaled from a car  just south of the piling.  The passenger depot is sufficiently  far  advanced to give  an excellent  idea of the appearance it will ultimately present.    Ou Saturday the  big 15-foot platform, which extends  for 75 feet on either side of the depot, was finished  and plaster  was  mixed for  the walls.   The ground  floor   of   the   building includes   a  ladies'  waiting-room   at   the   east  end, then a ticket office and Uya-  tory,; general  waiting-room,   baggage-room and express office.   All  the     apartments     are    commodious and the general arrangement  closely follows that adopted for the  Union station at Spokane.   The entire upper ilat is devoted to offices.  A long hall divides the floor space  down the center and opening to  right and  left are  apartments  devoted to the heads of various? departments.    At the -northeast corner is a comparatively small office  from which  captain  J.  W. Troup  will direct the whole machine.    Adjoining on the north is the office to  be   used   by  the   superintendent's  immediate staff while to the west  are   the   dispatchers    and    trainmaster's  offices.      The dispatchers  have a large room from which they  can see tho whole yard at w^prk and  look out on the   main  line for five  miles.    It is understood  that the  present chief dispatcher will have  two assistants with the eight hour  trick system.. Across  the hall are  port captain's and  port Stewart's  offices.     At   the west end of   the  building is.the engineers'  quarters  with*a" private  office  for the resident engineer and il large apartment for  his  staff.    On  the  same  flat are offices for  the  roadmaster,  superintendent of bridges and other  officials.    The building is wired for  electric light and will be heated by  steam, the apparatus for which was  delivered on Saturday.  The freight shed has been pushed  ahead aud nowrequires but finishing  touches to be ready for business.  The building is 220x40 feet and has  excellent arrangements for offices  and bonded warehouse. If the  freight business at Nelson increases  at anything approaching the ratio  of growth for the last six months,  the company will shortly bo confronted with the necessity of making an addition to the shed at an  early date.  The New Tuff.  Tlie shipyard crew is engaged on  the new tug and construction is so  "f'ir"advancedthat���the-craft^conld-  bo launched in a week or two. The  work is held back, however, by the  non-arrival of the boilers. These  were shipped some time ago along  with the engine for captain Troup's  new launch. On the journey it was  fouud that the car was too heavily  laden and tho launch engine was  removed to another car. The latter  came through all right, but the  original shipment has not turned  up. The engines came to hand  some time ago and are set up, in  positiou. They are 400 indicated  horse power, compound, and are  neat and compact. The material  for the house is all prepared and  ready to put together when the  machinery is all installed. The  carpenters are just finishing the  caulking of the deck and if tho  boilers arrive within a reasonable  time the tug can be launched about  the first of the year. She will draw  between eight and nine feet and is  to be the most powerful craft on  the lake. The Ymir, Procter and  Nelson are now engaged in towing  and if business increases the new  tug will' be required at an early  date to reinforce the towing fleet.  The Bicycle Tournament.  New Youk, December, 9.���The  sixth annual international six- day  bicycle race at Madison Square  garden was started at midnight tonight before 0,000 people. The race  is held under the auspices of the  American Bicycle Racing Association and 14 riders of international  reputation began the 142 hours!  contest. They represented as many  pairs as will race for the six days  as teams.   No man will be allowed  to ride on the track more than 12  hours in any day, but the two men  in each team may relieve one another at any time that suits themselves. At the end of the six days'  racing the $4,000 in prizes will be  distributed among the riders.  Following are  the riders: C. W-  Miller, Chicago, and Robert AValt-  hour,  Atlanta, Ga.; Hugh McLean,  Scotland, and Alex McLean, Scotland; Oscar Aronsou, Sweden, and  Oscar Babcock,  New York; W. C.  Stinson, Boston, and Frank Waller,  Germany; John Dubois, Brockton,  and Floyd Krebs,  Newark; H. D.  Elkes, Glen's Falls, and Floyd Mao-  Farlane,  San Jose; II' E.

This Is the Opinion of the Secrotary  of the Mainland Board of  Fire Underwriters.  Foiled a Footpad.  Vancouver, B. C, December 9.���  [Special to The Tribune.]���Hon.  Fred Peters made a plucky rescue  in an attempted hold-up last night.  He was returning home on Robson  street when he saw a man with his  hands above his head, who afterwards ^proved to be Louis J.  Springer, manager of the British  Columbia District Telegraph 'company. A masked mau was covering  Springer with a revolver aud going  through his pockets. Peters jumped  to his rescue and struck the footpad  with a whip. The robber ran away  leaving his revolver behind.  ALL ON BOARD   PERISHED  STEAMER  FOSTER FOUNDERS IN  A TERRIBLE GALE.  The Worst Storm in Years on Lake  Erie���Vessel Dove Nose First  in 100 Feet of Water.  Cleveland, Ohio, December 9.���  A special to the Plain Dealer from  Erie, Pennsylvania, says: In the  midst of one of the most bitter  gales that ever swept lake Erie, the  iron ore barge Charles Foster, in  tow of the Iron Duke, went to the  bottom at four o'clock this morning,  ten miles off Erie, and eight persons  were drowned, as follows : Captain  John Bridge of Cleveland, first  mate unknown, second mate unknown, seamen Robert Wood?,  William Kelly of Port Austin,  Michigan, Mrs. May of Detroit,  cook, and two unknown deck hands.  The Foster was one of. the fleet  of James Corrigan of Cleveland  and-for_two_months has been ruu-  ning from Duluth to Erie with iron  ore. Her cargo consisted of 1500  tons of ore. Captain Ashlep of the  Iron Duke made Erie in safety. Iii  an interview he said:  "When we turned for the harbor  a sea which was much heavier than  any other experienced struck us. I  ran to the stern ivnd just as I got  there the Foster plunged in an  awful sea and dove down nose  first. There was not a cry from  any of the eight of the crew she  carried. The storm avus so heavy  that I could not put about to hunt  for anyone. There would not have  been a particle of use, anyhow, because in those tremendous seas no  one could havo lived a minute, even  if the water had not been ice-cold."  There had not been a single signal of distress from the Foster up  to the time she sank. There is  from 80 to 100 feet of water where  the vessel sank and there is little  hope of ever being able to locate  the spot. The Foster was valued  at $19,000, but there was no insurance, as it lapsed December 1. The  life-saving crew took a trip today,  but could find no trace of the  wreckage.  As a World Power.  Berlin, December 9.���The National Zeitung devotes its first page  today to a cleverly prepared editorial dealing with the United  States as a world power. After  pointing out the enormous progress,  economically and politically of  America in the world's affairs, the  editorial declares that in both respects the United States are arrayed  against Europe.  themselves  fires,, by  department  In the Clutches of Fiends.  Sullivan, Indiana, December 9.  ���At Currysville, a mining town  seven miles north of 'here, a tramp  colored boy was the victim cf  savage torture at the hands of a  party of drunken miners last night.  The boy was picked up off the  street by sheriff Dudley and kept  over night iu the jail here and tlie  following morning was sent out of  town. He endeavored to steal a  ride to Terre Haute, but was put  off the train one mile south . of  Currysville. He walked to the  latter place, where he was taken iu  charge of drunken miners. He was  given several mock trials, prior to  The followiug letter addressed to  a well-known insuranceagent should  be read with interest liy the members of the council :whp voted to  table the petition pree;inted  them  by the leading business firms of the  city.    The writer of tjie letter is  the   secretary   of' the   Mainland  Board   of   Fire   Underwriters, an  official whose views are certainly  worthy, of: consideration,    seeing  that   no   reduction   in   insurance  rates  can be   obtained   unless  he  recommends the reduction.   This is  a question of, business, and not one  of politics as some of the members  of the council are trying to make  it, and it  is. one that the council  should consider on its  merits.     If  the" residents of Nelson  could save  15 per cent on.'.the ^amount  they  now   pay insurance" com panics  as  premiums, and both-insurance companies  and. property^owners" save  f-*om . . losses      from  making-  ".the      fire  of    Nelson' a    paid  one, surely the city,council should  consider  the   question  instead   of  ignoring' it.     The plea that the life  of the present council is so near an  end that it   would, be unwise to  take up the matter is not a good  one.   Less than - a'. month ago the  members  of. the council, .who aro  now so emphatic in their opposition  to the reorganization of the fire department were-willing to make a  contract with the Bonnington Falls  .power company, through its Nelson  ,agents, for lighting" J,he.,.,streets  of  the city "at an aYinuai'-iibs'lb of some.1  thing over ,$0000.    N6,s'uch expenditure   would   be   needed   in . substituting a paid fire department for  the present volunteer  one,  which  will cost the city close on to $10,000  this year.    11 is safe to say that a  paid   department of ten  men,  in  charge of a  man  who  knows  his  business,   would  be cheaper   than  the present volunteer brigade as  it  is now being run:   The following is  the letter referred to :  M.\I.N*1..\.V1J BOARD OI'*  FlKK UNnKItWHITKI*'*,  Vaxcouvuk, December 5th, 1000.  llKAU Sir : 1 am duly in receiptor jour favor  of the 1-tt instant, anil have- notol Us contents  with interesl. There are certainly a number of  improvements that could ba made in Nelson by  which the fire hazard would bo reduced, and for  wlneli the companies--could grant a reduction in  the rates. To Increa-c the lire department lo  eight or ten men, fury paid and to install an  eleel ric alarm system would certainly be a betterment. Then 1 would further suggest that a  sub-dtation with two or three men, a light combination cliemiuil aud hose wagon, with teim  -and-harne's.-lie-localed a(_an_appropriate_**oint  on the hill, to look after tho (IwHling-hoiiEe  section, which in al, present most inaccessible  from the present department house. This apparatus cou'd also net. as an auxiliary to the  main station for any llres requiring more than  the apparatus at. the main station. At the main  station a fully equipped- hook and ladder truck  with team and driver should bo supplied. I also  think it very important that the south halt of  blocks III, (15, (ill, and (!7, facing Vernon street, bo  included in the fire limits, that tho oonllugniliou  Im/Hi-d existing on the north, from the wal or  front to Vernon street, and which is growing all  tho t'me, could he cut oil'and possibly someday  he the menus of preventing a general conflagration. It would a'so bo very acceptable to tho  companies to have a bylaw regulating the amount  of explosives, hay| and similarly ���; combustible  material stored In the city, and ono also that  would provont the accumulation of litter and  rubbish in backyards and alleyways. I think for  all or a part of theso improvements a reduction  could ho made that would more than pay for it in  a short time.  Should thoro be any disposition shown on the  part.of tho city to mike-thoso Improvement--,  and they will let mo know to what extent they  will go, I would bo pleased to olllcially communicate to them the amount of reduction that  would be granted.

He was sentenced to be burned in a red hot  stove and in his struggles burned  his hands almost to a crisp. Sober  heads saved the boy from further  punishment.  Nobly Fulfilled Their Mission.  London, December 9.���The contingent of the Royal Canadians  attended service at St. Paul's  cathedral, returning thence to Kensington barracks, where colonel  Otter had arranged that they  should have an opportunity to meet  the earl of Aberdeen, former governor general of Canada, and the  countess. Lord Aberdeen, in a  felicitous address of farewell, said  they had nobly fulfilled their  mission and he 'was''"'-sure  they would be glad to get  back to their own country and  kin. He asked them to convey the  greetings of lady Aberdeen and  himself to mutual friends in the  Dominion.  THE NEW  B.  C.  Copper Company Has Everything in Readiness-  Expect to Begin Operations in January.  GENERAL   MINING   NEWS   OF   NELSON  AND VICINITY  To Be Shot in Mexico.  Era Paso, Texas, December 9.���  For the first time in many years an  American citizen has been sentenced  to be shot in Mexico." The.sentence  was imposed upon Bias Aguierre, a  native born Texan, yesterday by  the Juarez, t'vibunal as the penalty  for murder in the first degree.  Fatal Collision.  Richmond, Virginia, December 9.  ���A head-end collision between two  freight trains occurred two miles  below Richmond last night, in  whieh fireman Robert Boyd was  killed and three, other men were  injured.  FOUGHT WITH BOER ARMY  COMMANDER OF THE IRISH BRIGADE TELLS HIS STORY.  Took Part in tho Siege of Ladysmith  and the Fighting at Colenso���  Wanted-,To. Join Boers.  1  Nrw York, December 9.���On  board the steamer La Bretagne,  which arrived at quarantine last  night, was major John McBride,  late of the British army. Major  McBride was in command of the  Irish brigade which was recruited  in this country and served Avith  distinction until colonel Blake, who  is a native of county Mayo, Ireland,  was given the command on May  3rd. "The Irish brigade took part  in many engagements, and they  fought from ' border to border,"  said colonel McBride. "Our first  engagement was at Dundee on  October 13th. From there we went  down to Ladysmith and took part  in-the-siege^-of���that���city.-���Ou-  October 30th, tho day that the  Boers captured 1100 men, and at  the beginning of the siege the  brigade did excellent work. Indeed, their work attracted the  attention of general Joubeit, who  personally commended them.  '* On that day it was necessary  for ammunition to be brought up  to the guns. The work was  dangerous and the men carrying the  shells were exposed. In spite of  the danger the brigade volunteered.  Under a heavy fire they carried the  ammunition up with the result  that three were killed aud eleven  wounded.  " From Ladysmith we went to  Colenso, where we took part in the  fighting. We were there when  general Botha was beaten and when  Ladysmith was relieved. I want to  say that that victory was- not the  result of any brilliant fighting, but  was caused by the effect of general  Crohje's capture on the men.    ���''  " The story that the Irish Fusiliers wanted to join the Boers is  true." ';  Victoria to Carlos.  Lisbon, December 9.���King Carlos  has received from queen Victoria  the following telegram in response  to one sent by his majesty yesterday: **I am greatly touched by your  kind telegram. I sincerely thank  you, my dear nephew, for it, and  for the good wishes you entertain  toward me and my people. It is  again with the greatest pleasure  that I recognize the cordial and  friendly understanding between  Portugal and England."  Paul   Johnson,   manager of the  B.  C.   Copper Company  which is  building a smelter at Greenwood,  was in the city yesterday.   Part of  his mission to Nelson was to stimulate the transportation people into hurrying along the big Corliss  engine which is  to furnish power  for the smelter and other machinery  which has  been overlong en route  from the manufacturers.    Mr. .Johnson expects  to get his smelter in  running order by the first week or  two  in   January.    The  institution  would have been in operation earlier  had the plant been   delivered  as  early as -was anticipated.   Advantage has  been  taken  of the delay,  however, to complete the buildings  as far as possible and this has been  done.    Every nail  and  boltjwhich  can  be  driven   before   the   entire  complement   of machinery arrives  is, or will shortly be, in place  and  the completion of   the smelter is  now merely a matter of the time it.  will take to set up the  engine and  other   plant."   The   buildings are  erected with a view to the additions which  Mr.  Johnson aud  the  company expect will be necessary  at au early date to  handle the custom ore of the district.    Eventually  it is estimated the smelter will have  a capacity of 2000 tons per day.  Starts Work Next Month.  Mark Manley of Slocan City h,as  been  spending  a   day  or   two   in  Nelson on  his  way  home  from  a  trip to Spokane. With other parties  Mr. Mauley recently  took  a bond  on. the Iron Horse property on Ten-*  mile creek adjoining'the Enterprise  mine owned.by the London & li'. C?.  Goldfields.    It comprises  tho  Iron-'  Horse and London Fraction claims  and was staked in ISO 1,   just after  the Enterprise was  located. ���  The  owners are Angus  L.  McLean  and  A.   McDouald   of   Silverton    who  worked   the  property  for  a  time  and then bonded it in   1S97   to  the  Evans    syndicate    of    Vancouver.  Under the auspices of the latter a  tunnel   was   driven,   tapping   the  lead.    The   drift  crosscut   two or  three inches of clean ore  on wl'iich  a winze was started but abandoned  at a depth of two feet.     The bond  was then thrown up and the property reverted to the owners.     Last  spring McLeau and McDonald continued the winz.e to a  depth  of  20  feet and made a strike.     The  paystreak widened ont to a foot, eight  inches of whicli is clean ore running  2()0-ouncesrwith=ever-y=evidence=of-  continuing to widen  out.     In  addition   to  this   vein,   upon Whicli  work is to be continued next month,  there    is   another   ledge   running  parallel   at    a   distance    of   200  feet     west.     This     is     a     continuation     of     the    vein     which  runs   through   all   the   properties  the Arlington is admitted, and the ,  report  that   with   the   Speculatoi-  and Mabou it will be placed on  the ,  English   market   next   year   atvav  capitalization of ��1,000,000, though "-^.j  not admitted by the  management,  is still credited among  the  mining  men of the section and  various circumstances are cited which tend-to  support the impression* that some- :*  thing of the kind  is contemplated.  The Enterprise is now being worked  with a crew of 30 men and  reports ���  crop up frequently that the number  will be increased to 100 at an early  date.    J.  D. Kendall,  au    Eugli&h'  expert of repute, has estimated the  value of ore in sight at  $1,000,000,   '  and a statement issued by the com- - -  pauy in England has set forth their  ability   to   ship   000   tons-of   ore  monthly.   The work is now largely   -  confined to development with shipments sufficient to meet current ex-,."  ponses.     The Bondholder made a  shipment to the Hall Mines smelter-  last October of 17J tons of ore which  '  netted $2,200.    The property is now   *  under lease and will be worked all '  winter.    Other   groups   are   being  _,  worked steadily, notably the Spec-   ���  ulator. - The addition   of the. Iron.  Horse to the working list is another    ,, .  revolution in the wheel of progress.~y  Strike on the Black Prince.   "��� *   >.  A strike of high grade.ore on the *  Black   Prince   group. is   reported.'  The property is located on Springer  creek  adjoining   the Two Friends ~  group, and is owned by John Elliot "*-  of Nelson  and  other parties.  ���The.  Prince  was   recently  the  bone  of  contention in the suit of Sloamvs. "-  Gormley,   but   the litigation   was '  wound up and the group leased"to ,  Frank Sherry and others.    It was -  while driving  an  upraise  thalithe't  paystreak was discovered. , A contract for rawhiding -has been let [ to  ���  Robert Allen  who is now breaking  the trail preparatory to taking out  ore. ' Work is  progressing steadily  ou  the Two Friends-property adjoining and the showing is reported  "  to be improving steadily.  Want Snow Badly.  Mining men  generally  from the Ohio on the summit of  Springer creek to the Weymouth  on the north side of Ten-mile creek,  and carries an .excellent'quality of  concentrating ore.  Three assays of samples of ore  from the Iron Horse are quoted as  fairly representing the quality of  the ore as follows: General sample, gold, trace; silver, $31.11; lead,  $11.40; total, $78.5-1; selected sample z.inc, gold, 83 cents; silver  $224.14; lead, $3.12; total, $24S.09;  selected sample galena, gold, 41  cents; silver, $274.02; lead, $03.08;  total, $338.11.     -  The  nessed  in   the  waters  creeks.  A ThrivinK Section,  year   just closing  has wit-  a remarkable development  district about the heud-  of Ten-mile and Springer  In this section and almost  within gunshot of a modoru longdistance rifle is a group of properties which conservative mining-men  predict will yet be among the rieh-  ist producers in the Sloean. The  list comprises the Arlington, Enterprise, Speculator, Mabou, Neepawa,  United Empire, Iron Horse, Bondholder and Weymouth. Several of  these groups were bondedduring the  last eleven mouths, and others have  during that period been developed  to a producing stage.

In  several instances Avhere contracts  havo been let for handling ore some  distance to the lake "front, the  teamsters have been unable to move  a pound of ore because of the lack  of sleighing. At other points the  rawhide trails are-' thawing; and so  slushy that rawhidiug has been  postponed until a cold snap sets in.  -The=resultys=that=a=number���of���=|  properties which should have  started shipping a fortnight ago  still have thousands of dollars  locked up in ore on their dumps  aiid the disappointment is keen and  is shared by the contracting teamsters Avho figured on a long sleighing season.  Abandoned the Bonds,  it is reported that .1. F. Collom  has thrown up the bonds taken a  couple of months ago on the Mabo*i  and Ohio groups on tho divide between Springer and Ten-mile creeks.  This action is understood to be  taken as the result of circumstances-;  not connected in any way with tlie  properties iu question. Both the  Mabou aud Ohio are situated iu the  center of the rich mineral belt of  which the Arlington and Enterpi ise  are the leading properties, and both  are unquestionably propositions of  exceptional merit.

He will be  met by the prince and princess of  Wales and will proceed immediately <  in triumphal progress to St. Paul's  cathedral where all will attend a  special service of thanksgiving.

If it were, no one connected  with the Miner would be fonnd on  it. On the other hand, if the water  collector's roll was investigated, it  would be found that both The  Miner and its editor are using city  water without paying for it.  Thr Sandon Paystreak is opposed  to any legislation on the lead question.    It says  that the silver-lead  mine   owners   of   tlie   Slocan   are  already taxed one and a half cents  ou the lead contents of their ore to  pay the United States import duty.  That is a statement of fact; but  suppose Canada imposed a like import duty of one and a half cents,  in wha**. way would that interfere  with   the   Slocan    mine    owners'  privilege of shipping their  ores  to  the United States ?   What price do  the Slocan silver-lead mino owners  get   for   their    ore    at   American  smelters ?   In all cases is it not the  New York quotations for lead and  silver the day on which  the  ore is  sampled at the smelter, *eFS the duty  on .lead?   There   is   a   market   in  Canada for lead, and there should be  one for silver.     If Canada imposed  the same .duties on lead  and  lead  products   as   are  imposed by the  United   States,   the   Slocan    mine  owner who sold his ore to a Canadian smelter  would  be paid  the  Montreal or Toronto quotations for  lead and silver and  no deductions  would   bo   made   for   duty.     The  Toronto   or    Montreal    quotation  would be   the   same   as   the New  York    quotation.      Of   course,   if  he   preferred   shipping to  American   smelters,   he would have   to  stand   the duty deduction,  as he  does now.    Will  the  Sandon Paystreak inform its readers if there is  any competition between American  smelters for Slocan ore ?   Is it not  a fact that the Slocan mine owners  are    treated     by . the    American  smelters     just   as   the     western  cattle raisers are treated by the  packing     houses     at     stock-yard  centers   like   Chicago..    Although  there are six big packing houses in  Chicago, the cattle raiser on taking  a train-load   of   beeves there for  sale gets one   bid,   and   no  more,  lie    is    compelled    to    take    it.  So  with  the mine owner  of   the  Slocan.    He gets one bid for his ore,  and  it   goes   to  the  smelter that  needs   it.    Competition   lias   be< n  done away with. -The Tribune believes that every ton of ore mined  in the Sloean, as well as every ton  cause of his known dislike and hostility to some other man.     Aldermen should be able to sink their  personal prejudices  and  spleen ; if  unable to do so, they are unfit to~  be aldermen.   No man should be  elected to the office  of mayo?* '**>ho  is not able and willing to devote  his entire time to the duties of the  office, aud he should be paid  liberally for his services.    He should be  a man who knows the  interests  of  the eity, and be at all times willing  to  maintain  them  against  all  influences     that     are   antagonistic.  Surely there is one such man in the  city.    Back that man up  with  six  aldermen of   good  common  sense,  and Nelson will not only maintain  its   present position,  but will, in  time, become the leading city in  the inter-mountain  country.     The  following is an outside opinion of  Nelson.     It   is   taken   from   the  Christmas  number  of the  British  Columbia Mining Record :    "Iu the  " direction  of   municipal   govern-  " ment Nelson  is  one  of the most  "advanced cities of   Canada.     It  " early secured control of its own  " water   and   light   systems,    and  "possesses in  them assets, as the  "city   grows,' to   greatly    relieve  " taxation   and   further  the   eon-'  " struetiou of  municipal  improve-  " ments.    A scheme for supplying  " cheap   electrical   power through  " the medium   of   the   municipal  " credit has also been mooted. This  " would be a daring but -probably  " successful    move.     Its   indirect  " effects in stimulating_.enterprise  " would     undoubtedly    be    most  " marked.     Nelson would have  a  " premium to   offer any industry  " that   proposed to   locate in. the  " country.  .    It     is     questionable  " whether   any   point   in    British  " Columbia has the necessary con-  " ditions    of    future    growth   so  " clearly indicated as  they  are  in  "Nelson."-   The future of Nelsou;  says the same-journal, "depends to  " some extent upon the enterprise  " and activity of "the citi/.ens.'They  " have lived up to their destiny so  "far, and show no evidence of fail-  " ing to do so in the future." Words  like the above, coming  from  the  source they" do, are in strange contrast to the words. of the Nelson  Evening Miner, a newspaper that  for two years has not uttered one  word in praise of the town or  the  men who by their enterprise and  activity have made the town what  it is  today.   Further comment is  not necessary.  tt?'00'0*  _fWf__   . f.\   ��1111111 mxx__ix_______~i  Holiday  Novelties \  Arriving Daily.    \  \f_tt__XX  x-^r*���xx_r__x__��  -z____:____xx___*:x' txxxxx  ' | The new Straight [  | Front Corset.

It believes that every ton of matte or  base bullion turned out by smelters  in British Columbia should be separated and refined either in British  Columbia or in Canada, and afterwards manufactured in Canada.  The result of sucli an industrial  policy Avould not hurt the mine  owners of tho Slocan, and it would  benefit what the Paystreak calls  " would-be smelting centers like  " Nelson, Kaslo, Trail, Grand Forks  " and Greenwood." What benefits  Nelson and other towns in southeastern British Columbia benefits  British Columbia, and that should  be the one object of all the people_  ot the province.  Nelson is no longer a village.   It  is admitted that there are.only two  more important cities  than Nelson  in the province.    Iu order .to main  tain its position, Nelson must keep  pace witli the growth of the country tributary to it.    It must be up-  to-date in everything that goes  to  make np a progressive city.

FORD'S EUROPEAN BUDGET  South African Pot Chase.  New  York, December 9.���Iu a  cable dispatch dated London (! a.m.  ,Mi*. I. N. Ford,  special correspondent   of the   New   York Tribune,  says: The fox chase has  begun  in  tlie  worse  possible  weather, with  drenching rains and swollen  rivers.  Dewet  having failed  in   a second  attempt to force the passage of the  Orange river, doubled  back  northeast on a third zigzag, with Knox's  . troops in hot pursuit,    lie was  not  overtaken at lioxville and was  apparently heading for Wepener, over  the road taken by Oliver in his  re-  * treat from Aliwal North last spring.  But  there  was  a  chance  that he  'might turn about on a fresh zigzag  and strike for llerschel, on the way  to Berkley East.    The fox was still  running   when general Kitchener's  ' bulletin  was   sent   out   yesterday  morning, but was  hard pressed  on  all sides and well nigh caught.  ***   Military men wero convinced last  night  that general Kitchener had  not neglected to send a strong  column to Wepener from Dewetsdorp,  and if   this   had   been done they  ���'could  not perceive  how the great  raider could escaps.    The abandonment of  horses and carts they considered a sign that he was harried  nearly to   death,   and   they confidently predicted   the   news of   his  capture  at any hour.    The British  mounted forces are. riding as never  before   during   a  campaign.     One  --ecret of the remarkable mobility  is explained by military men as the  -adoption of Boer tactics.    The British  columns are moving  light and  havo horses to spare for remounts.'  The   accounts   of    the   wonderful  marching havo revived  interest in  the campaign.  Reception to Canadian Troops.  Of the reception given the Canadian troops at the Imperial institute Mr. Ford says : The reception  of the Canadian contingents at the  Imperial institute last evening was  a notable affair. Over tten thousand invitations had been issued  and the great hall and adjoining  galleries were thronged with  Canadian residents of London who  had longed for an opportunity to  welcome and honor the heroes of  Paardeburg. . Lord and lady  Strathcona received the guests at  the head of the great staircase and  the Canadian soldiers had a foretaste among their own people of  the welcome which awaits them  across the Atlantic. Among the  ^visit6rs^were=ladyyibei*deen_and=  Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Parker. A  circle was formed at the close of the  reception and a series of hearty  speeches were delivered. Lord  Strathcona undertook to express  "the satisfaction aud pride felt by  Canadians iu England over the  gallantry of colonel Otter's men  during the campaign and the wonderful reception which had : been  tendered to them since their arrival  in London.  Lord Aberdeen followed him with  sentences ringing with appreciation  of the good work done by the  queen's loyal and devoted Canadian  soldiers, and singled but lord  Strathcona's conduct in equipping  at his own expense a large body of  mounted men as one of the notable  events of the war.  Colonel Otter made a manly and  (soldierly reply on behalf of the  Canadian regiment and lord Strathcona,' after reading a dispatch of  godspeed from .Mr.' Chamberlain,  who had been detained by a cabinet  meeting, proposed three cheers for  the- regiment. These were. given  heartily, but colonel Otter at once  proved what discipline could do  by calling upon his men to cheer  for lord Strathcona and Canada.  Cheers followed like volleys of  musketry with ai "tiger" like a  bomb shell. ,  The Week's Doings in Parliament.  The general results of the first  week of parliament are concentration on the Liberal side aud conciliation on the part of the government. Lord Rosebery has shown  signs of consciousness that there is  a strong movement in favor of his  resumption of the party leadership,  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. 3.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  and after the radicals had been allowed to have a single night's sport  in irritating and drawing out Mr.  Chamberlain, the Liberal Imperialists were brought into tho front  lino aud the forces of the opposition  were united and well led. This unexpected display of Liberal uimn-  iiuity had an immediate effect upon  the attitude of the government.  Mr. Chamberlain, who had been  irritable and at his worst on the  first night, was at his best last  night. In a most conciliatory and  statesmanlike speech on South  Africa, he consented to take the  Liberal Imperialists into his confidence by forecasting an intermediate stiite between military law  and home rule, with a revival of  municipal government and an approach to the general system prevailing in Jamaica, and he delight, d  sir William Vernon Harcourt and  tlie radicals by assuming that  means-would be found for reachii>g  the mines, which were the sole remaining source of wealth in South  Africa. The heated air of the house  of commons was suddenly cooled,  tlie Liberal amendment was withdrawn and there Avas a united  parliament with a reasonable Jand  conciliatory policy to respond in the  right temper to the inflammatory  appeals from the Dutch convention  at Worcester. It is by sobiiety  of judgment and conservatism of  spirit on supreme occasions that  the British parliament, even when  the giants of debate are iu their  graves, redeems its reputation as a  statesmanlike body of legislators.  The chancellor of the exchequer  will probably appear on the scene  on Monday to explain the ways and  means by which he hopes to provide for the latest installment of the  war bill. His estimate has fallen  flat upon the market, because it is  known to be incomplete and his  general method of linancing -the  war is condemned as shortsighted.

THIRD  AVENUE,   ROSSLAND.  CITY LOCAL NEWS  It is reported that the steamer  Angerona will not be raised until  next spring aud that her engines  will be placed in a new hull to be  built later.  The engines for captain J. AV.  Troup's new launch were delivered  here on Saturday and removed to  Hale's boathouse where the craft is  being constructed.  The Congregational bazaar closed  on Saturday night with an auction  sale in the course of which tlie  articles unsold were disposed of,  The affair was quite successful.  On Saturday Taylor ��fc Hannington issued a wiit on behalf of M.  F. Peters, who claims $10,000 damages from the street car company  as compensation for injuries received last yeai when he lost an  arm in the company's service.  On Saturday P. Burns & Oo. received the first consignment of a  shipment of nine carloads of fowl  ordered in Ontario for the Christmas trade. As a carload contains  24,000 pounds of poultry, the mag-:  nitude of the demand for this class  of holiday cheer can be estimated,  The ladies of the Methodist  church have arranged a choice  menu for their dinner tonight to be  served in the residence on Josephine  street opposite the parsonage from  5 to S p.m. Following the dinner is  an excellent; entertainment in the  church, winding up the anniversary  services. Mesdames Rutherford,  Morrison, Bell and Thurman, the  Misses Lillie and Fred Smith, C.  Benedict, G. L. Lennox, together  with the choir, participate in the  program.  The anniversary services at .the  Methodist church yesterday were  most successful. The return of the  ex-pastor, Rev. J. H. Morden, was  greeted by large congregations and  his addresses were most interesting.  Tlie choir of the church contributed  a program of unusual excellence,  and in every respect the Sunday  services were worthy of the importance attained by Methodism- in  Nelson. Today the anniversary will  be continued by a tea from 5 to 8  o'clock and an entertainment in the  church commencing at 8 o'clock.  Returns From Cariboo.

The result of tlie election in  Yale-Cariboo is a certainty now  and such returns as are still arriving only tend to swell candidate  Galliher's majority. The new member of parliament is taking his  honors quietly and accepts the congratulations showered upon his  head with modesty. On Friday  morning Mr. Galliher" went back to  his law books and will continue to  take a hand in the extensive legal  business transacted by Galliher &  Wilson until the calling of parlia-  ���_i"elTt^ntail^  The official declaration as to the  outcome of the voting in the constituency will be made by the returning officer on December 20,  after which the successful candidate's name is ga/.etted. He then  becomes formally entitled to add  "M. P." to his signature, although  this courtesy is usually extended by  others when the election returns  are first established.  In regard to the election Mr.  Galliher says : " I expected from  the start to win the contest and my  belief never wavered, although at  times the horizon darkened and the  prospect was none too bright. Toward tlie close of tho campaign  things looked better and 1 was  thoroughly confident of victory on  election day. In figuring ou the  vote the Liberals estimated ou the  basis of JiSOO votes, allowing the  Conservative's .'3000 and the Labor  party 2500. AVe apparently figured  on.'. 500 votes which were not  brought to the polls, while the Conservative voters also failed to turn  out in full strength. Our estimate  as to the Labor party's strength  was within 200 of their actual vote,  wfrieh is quite as ueat* as could be  expected in a constituency of this  size and area."  Speaking of the Oriental and  lead smelting matters, both of which  were made issues iu the campaign,  Mr. Galliher said: "I purpose making a special and exhaustive study  of the lead question with a view to  ascertaining the importance of  stimulating the home reduction of  lead ores and the best methods of  achieving this result.     Upon  the  report of the  commission  now  inquiring into the Mongolian problem  will  depend the  action taken by  parliament.        If   the    report    is  strongly worded1-and   backed   by  undisputable   statistics, the  hands  of the members-who are seeking to  bring about a new order of things  in regard to Chinese and Japanese  immigration will be very materially  strengthened. .. One thing we will  have to fight is the apathy of easterners on the question.    The average man from  an eastern constituency has no. conception of the conditions   existing    in   the   west   in  regard to the Chinese immigration  question and considerable education  will be required to win them to our  way of thinking."  All members of  the local militia  corps and others in the constituency  will  be glad to note Mr. Galliher's  return....... He is an old military man,  having fought through the Soudan  campaign of 1885 with the corps of  Canadian voyageurs and afterward  held a lieutenants commission in  the Nelson Rifle company. Naturally Mr. Galliher takes a deep interest in matters military, and it is  Saafe to predict that the Nelson company will not sull'er from the neglect of the militia department. The  same applies to the Rocky Mountain Rangers as a whole/and as the  reorganization of the regiment is  on the tapis it will be of special  value to have _ member at Ottawa  who wilhsee that the only military  corps in the interior of the province  will receive the consideration it  merits. The matter of a drill hall  and the regimental headquarters  are also to be dea^t with, and in adjusting these points the local members will naturally be consulted.  BAD MAN FROM ROSSLAND  And His' Little Gun.  Harry Conway, who claims Rossland as  his  headquarters, made a  gunplay at the Sherbrooke  house  on Saturday night and was promptly lodged behind the bars at police  headquarters.    Before ��� he gets out  of the scrape the Rossland man will  likely realize that Nelson   people  dislike a mail who flourishes a firearm,   Conway went into the bar at  the Sherbrooke and ordered a drink.  He received - the liquor and drank  it without offering to settle for the  accommodation. This led to a brief  argument  in' the 'midst  of  which  the  clock  struck 11  and  the  bartender stepped around to lock the  front door as' required bylaw.  Conway waxed angry and drew a 14-  caliber revolver which he held to  the bartender's head and ordered  him to open up again.   Conway was  told to go out the side door, but refused and insisted on  having the  door opened.-   This was done and  Conway did not. go out.. Instead of  leaving he remained and started inviting a row with others about the  place in the course of which the revolver was produced ag.iin.    Meanwhile constable Hislop was notified  and arrived, at .the Sherbrooke.    He  arrested   Conway,   who   protested  vigorously.    The   prisoner  will be  arraigned before magistrate Crease  this morning.'-..:���'���  CRACK NELSON CHECKER MEN  *   , - \  Result of Tournament.
