 r<_*is  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR.  NELSON:  THURSDAY MORNING DECEMBER 20  1900  PRICE FITE CENTS  ?>j  MINIM IN THE NELSON BISTHICT  About the Porcupine Creek Country With Its Promising  O " - *  Galena and Gold-Copper Prospects.  \n  i i\  y  II  h'<  SNOW WANTED TO FACILITATE THE OUTPUT OF ORE  'Among the most promising mineral districts south of Nelson is the  section drained by Porcupine creek.  The stream is about ten or eleven  miles long and .joins the Salmon  river a mile south Of Ymir, after  draining an area of approximately  k 100 square miles, bounded on one  hand by the Hidden creek divide  and on the other by the Bear creek  divide. The section is mineralized  fiom end to end, and the stream  affords excellent water power at  many points. For timber, the country is fairly well supplied with fir,  spruce, hemlock, cedar and white  pine, so that the essentials for mining operations are all at hand. The  characteristic mineral is galena,  sometimes carrying a few dollars in  gold and gold-copper. As a whole  tlie section has strong ledges of low  or medium, grade - ore, although  there are exceptions" to this rule.  Tlie formation is -diorito at the  mouth of tho creek, giving place to  granite as the summit is neared.  The district was first prospected in  '91 and '92 aud is now staked more  or less from end to end along the  creek. Three and a half miles  above the mouth  of Porcupine the  * south fork branches off and runs  toward the Hidden creek divide/  Trails have been constructed from  the mouth of the hetad waters of the  mali\ creek and also to the head of  the south fork, from- which side  trails have been cut to the principal  properties. . As a whole the section  is undeveloped, but a number of the  propositions are |p,suchl,shape.that  they are likely to become producers  at a comparatively early date.  Away the best known propositions  along Porcupine creek are those referred to in the following :  The Rio Grande group is'situated  a mile and a half from the mouth of  the Porcupine. It comprises*.a number of claims and is owned by Rossland parties. Considerable surface  work has been done aud there is an  excellent showing of galena carrying a few dollars in gold. On the  same slope further up the hill is the  Nevada group, also owned by Rossland parties and stocked. This  property also has a good showing  of galena. J; Parker aud W. Deb-  ney of Rossland own several claims  oii the creek above tlio Rio Grande  on which they have done work  steadily aud have been* rewaided  with a really fine showing. Then  "comes the Eldorado, at the forks of  =tlfe**c reekr^Th is=g roii p"* was**stocked=  during the last few months and  will probably be worked on an extensive basis next spring.  ��� ���.'.Oii the divido between Hidden  creek aud the south fork of Porcupine is the Big Four group, also a  stocked proposition. It has a  strong vein, the ore in which will  probably average $40. A crosscut  tunnel to tap the vein was recently  finished for 50 feet and operations  h.ave now been suspended for the  winter.  Crossing the south fork and following the trail for two and a half  miles is the Union Jack group, which  was located by J. Goodlad and  Dougal Cameron, who are still interested in the property. This is a  copper-gold proposition and considerable work has been done on  the strong lead which crosses the  claims. Further on is the Lake  View, owned by Al Hughes of Ymir  and others; ft is a galena property  and has a.good showing. A big  tunnel has been driven on the  group and work will be resumed in  the spring. ���  On the head waters of the south  fork is the Big Horn group, which  is the only ono working at the  presen time in the section. It consists of nine claims and was staked  by Edward Todd, AV. M. Edgar, T.  Wood, and S. DesBrisay in 189S.  The Big Horn is a gold-copper property, the ore from which will  average $2*1. The vein is about 22  feet wide on the surface with four  feet of ore, the assays from which  range from $4 to $274 in gold.  Comfortable cabins, including bunk-  house, <20ok-house, magazine and  Macksmith shop, are erected and  season,  but  snap   they  the mine is equipped with cars and  other essentials. The property was  stocked at a million dollars about a  year ago. A crew of . seven men  under the direction of: W. M. Edgar  is now at work, on the property.  Two shifts are worked oh a crosscut  which is progressing at the rate of  a foot per day. This property may  ship during- the winter.  In addition to the foregoing there  are scores of locations on the main  creek and south fork which/ire reported to be first-class prospects,  but'on whieh work is not sufficiently  advanced to give any indication of  their value.  Cold Weather Wanted.  Continued soft weather is enibar-  assing raining operations  all over  the district.    Reference to this matter was recently made in The Tri-  iiunk, but at that timo it  was  assumed that the cold snap could not  be much longer averted  and  that  sleighing and rawhiding : would be  in* order   shortly.    Several  weeks  havo intervened, but the weather  has    grown     softer     instead     of  turning    co!der0 and    things   are  in     worse      shape     than      ever.  In   view    of    the    comparatively  open    weather    experienced    last  winter     and     other     indications  the weather prophets predicted a  hard  winter   for this  after   the   early   cold  changed their opinions as a rule  aiid now the weather wiseacres will  tell you  that  little cold weather  may be looked for.    This is unfortunate from the standpoint of mining  men, to whom snow is an essential in moving ore. on a profita-  ;'cle-basis.   Insome quartersfrostis  an absolute necessity, as wet weather makes the roads  so soft that  the  ore wagons sink  to the hubs.  With    frost    wagons     might   be  utilized for teaming, but  the owners -prefer   sleighing   to   teaming.  Wheie rawhiding  has  to  be done  snow is absolutely   essential, and  at the present  time the thaw has  oxtended almost to tho top of the  hills,  turning  rawhide  trails   into  streams of slush.  In some instances  mines that were  figuring to make  initial shipments during December  have been prevented from moving  their ore,  and  where  heavy shipments were contemplated  the "program     can     now    only   be    carried     out     in      full       by      an  unusually late spriug, enabling the  teamsters to keep up hauling longer  than   usual.   Another   unpleasant  feature arises-in connection  with  ^the'=properties=in=the=Slocan=-which=  are being1 developed by parties who  figure on shipping ore sufficient to  pay running expenses and a portion  of the initial p.ayments.  These properties cannot move their ore aud  the result is a  disappointment  all  round.      ^   A New Steamship Company.  Minneapolis, December 19.���  Frank H. Peavey, the well known  grain elevator capitalist, is organizing with a number of lake capitalists a steamship company to  operate on the Great Lakes. Mr.  Peavey admitted today that contracts had been closed for the construction of four large freighters at  Cleveland at a cost of a- million and  a half dollars. They will run between Duluth and Buffalo, carrying  grain, ore and general freight.  Venezuela, aud if succor in the  prompt dispatch of warships by tho  United States government is not  forthcoming at once, the results  may prove disastrous. The cablegram is dated from Caracas, and  goes on to say that the revolution  has been engendered by the fight  between the National Asphalt company and its rivals for tho possession of the Bermudese asphalt  lake. The lake is situated 20 miles  from- the coast of Venezuela and  contains extensive and ricli deposits  of asphalt. It has been in the possession of the National Asphalt  company, or its constituent company, the New York and Bermudese  company, for over 12 years. .  ��� -.   The West Point Hazing Case.  Washington, December 19.���The  special committee appointed by  speaker Henderson to investigate  the circumstances connected with  the death of Oscar L. Booz, whojs  alleged to have died as a result of  injuries received from hazing while  a cadet at AVest Point, held its first  meeting today and decided to enter  upon the investigation immediately  after tho holiday recess. The committee has determined to probe the  Booz case to the bottom. It will  examine some of tlie young men  who were in. Booz's class, but who  have failed or left the academy for  other reasons in order to procure  testimony which is not prejudiced _by the atmosphere of  the academy. Further, the committee will investigate the general  subject of hazing ' sufficiently to  make an intelligent recommendation to congress.  LOSSES AT NOOITEOGAGHT  FIGHTING BOTHA ;ND DEWET  HARRY WINFIELD  UP   AGAINST  THE   WILY BOERS.  What the  Canucks Did When Boers  Surprised Them���Death   of  Borden and Logan.  EIGHTY-TWO WERE KILLED AND  .    WOUNDED.  Utmost Efforts Are Being Made to Provide Lord Kitchener the Necessary Equipment.  Americans in Danger.  New York, December 19.���A  second cablegram was received this  afternoon by vice-preside"*nt Avery  D. Andrews of the National Asphalt  company concerning the. revolution  which has broken out iu Venezuela.  This second cablegram asserts that  the situation is extremely desperate as regards Americans and their  property in the South American republic. The message, which Avas  sent by a representative of the  National Asphalt company, which  has extensive interests ii-Veht z iela,  is urgent in its appeal for immediate action by the United States for  the protection of Americans, whose  lives and property are endangered. A general attack, the  cablegram says, is being^planued  upon   all  American   interests    in  . - London, December 19.���The losses  at Nooitedgacht, according to the  official count, were 82 killed and  wounded and 44 missing and still  unaccounted for.  The war office last evening could  give no information regarding reports of a Boer invasion of Capo  Colony. The officials expressel the  opinion, however, that the newspaper accounts were exaggerated,  and that probably the troops who  have been employed in chasing geueral Dewet will be diverted to deal  with the invaders. Having regard  to the customary methods of the  war office,* this can only be interpreted as confirming the reports.  Lord Kitchener in the meantime  keeps a, tight rein over the news,  IvKiclf^increases--the public" dis--"  quietude. There is a persistent  rumor that he has demanded heavy  reinforcements. According to the  Daily Mail, private telegrams received iu London yesterday depict  the situation in Cape Colony as  somewhat ominous. It seems that  tho invading Boers are receiving  considerable assistance from the  local Dutch and that the troops at  the disposal of the British authori-  ties are not sufficient to cope with  any serious spread of the military  operations. It is believed that the  government has at last- awakened  to tho seriousness of the situation  and is making the utmost efforts to  provide lord Kitchener with horses  and mules.  France to Make Restitution.  Paris, December 19,:���In addition  to the order directing that the  cases filled with Chinese loot sent  to president Loubet, and another  by general Ferry, commander of  the French marine forces in China,  shall be embargoed at Marseilles  when they are unshipped, the government has decided that all  objects", unless material of war,  which have been seized or shall be  seized by the French expeditionary  force in China shall be restored,  whether belonging to the Chinese  government or to private individuals.     _^  Battle Imminent.  Krugersdorp, Transvaal, December 19.���A pitched battle is imminent between the British under  general Clements, who has been  reinforced, and the Boers under  general Ddlarey.  Another letter from Harry Winfield', the Nelson man serving in the  Canadian Mounted Rifles, is to  hand. In this he describes his encounter with DeWet.-the wily Boer  leader, and gives a description of  the scene which ensued after the  Boers sprung one of the little surprises they wore so fond of perpetrating on the British.,  When Winfield concluded the  letter published yesterday his corps  was in camp a short distance " from  Pretoria. He then says: " We  thought the war was ..over and I  wrote from there hometelling th-_m  they might expect me.two or three  weeks after the letter. But it was  not to be, for three days after this  we were in the engagement at  Diamond hill, 15 miles northeast of  Pretoria, where poor old -Frost got  shot *. .to ; pieces byyp.'-l;"> pounder.  For :~*24'" -hours 'we1*were on ,top  of a big kopje continuously^ shelled  by the enemy at,'lon"g and close  range, and wo lying down and  never replying, our' artillery being  out of ammunition. ./Forbes, constable of New Denver, Eaton and  myself were lying ^pn- our backs  behind boulders- when "a 15-pound  shell burst within two yards of us,  covering us -"with dirt and stones.  The sensation was -anything but  cheering, but with our proverbial  luck all escaped.  "On our .return to'" Pretoria' the  second battalion p.; M. R. only  were ordered by special request of  lord Roberts-to.tako'traih for Fre-  deport, a station alraostLforfcy miles  north of Kroonsta"dt,Jand"to "guard  and patrol the line between Hon-  iugspruit and Rhemoota. river, a  distance of about forty or fifty  miles. At this time Dewet was  getting in his work in this district  and had played havoc witli and inflicted loss on various points of this  line, besides destroying bridges and  tearing up the track. It was at  Honingspruit on June 22nd that he  paid us a visit. We were split up  into troops and posted at various  intermediate points, so that only  two troops of Canadian Mounted  Rifles and a half battalion of the  Derbys were there. The infantry  sustained the larger casualties.  Ours were Morden and Kerr killed,  lieutenants Inglis and. Birnie and  two more wounded, and four taken  prisoners. On this'occasion Dewet  was repulsed.  __ "After about a mouth of this kind  "of work~^wo wore, again ordered  north, marching along the line a  distance of 150 miles to a station  eight miles south of Pretoria. There  we were re-clothed and re-horsed  and ordered to join our brigade at  Richelieu, twenty miles east. Botha  occupied a very strong position in  this vicinity, but after about a  week's daily fighting he was driven  off. It was about this time at Wit-  port that. Dr. Borden's son was  killed. I was present at tho fight  and at the funeral. We followed  up the Boers, having a few skirmishes, to Middleburg, which is  about eighty miles east of Pretoria  on the Delagoa Bay railroad and  occupied the town .Tuly 27th. .Since  then Ave have been on line of communications that is guarding the  railway in our particular district  and did not participate in the big  fights that followed.  "We Avere attacked on September  5th by 200 Boers Avith two field  guns and a pom-pom. We Avere 90  strong with no guns, but kept them  off for three and a half hours until  assistance arrived. The position  was a farm on high ground Avith  several narrow avenues of trees  forming a bunch 200 yards square.  The surrounding country is open  undulating veldt. We Avere entrenched on the border and invisible to the Boers, but they did unmercifully pound us Avith their 12-  pounders, pom-poms and rifle fire.  It was terrific, but owing to the  shelter of the trees and treuches  only one officer and ono man were  wounded aud six Avho Avere on outpost Avere taken prisoners.  "I had just risen from my veldt  bed and in the light of early dawn  when I saAV the flash and simultaneously heard the report of four rifles  right into the bushes in  our  direction.   They had advanced Avithm  50 yards of Avhere avo Avere lying.  An     amusing    as    Avell   as     exciting sceno folloAved.

They had the advantage and might have rushed right  in but had not the 'sand.'   I suppose that Avas the last time I Ava.s  under fire, although Ave get sniping  almost every day, but that is only  a mild form of amusement.  "Of course you have heard about  poor old Logan. He, with four  others of Strathcona's Horse, Avere  killed at Croeidile river some  two months ago. All Avere shot  dead by a Boer picket."  Agreed to Everything.  PkkIiV, December 19.���At a meeting of the foreign ministers late this  afternoon everything in regard to  the terms of the joint note Avas  agreed to, including the British  modifications. The ministers refuse to disclose anything in connection with the matter, believing the  home governments should give the  particulars to the public. *'  . Revoked Permits.

A.   CUDAHY  KIDNAPED.  The Millionaire Pork Packer Receives  a Note Offering to Deliver the  Boy for $25,00-6.  Omaha, December 19.���Detectives are scouring this city and the  surrounding country for some trace  of EdAvard A. Cudahy, junior, 15  years old, son of the rich packer,  Edward A.^Cudahy. The boy left  his homo last eveniug AA'ith some  books which he presented to a boy  friend, the son of C. B. Dustin, living only a feAv blocks distant. This  was the last*seen of him. Feeling  certain that their son has been kidnaped for the purpose of securing  a ransom, the Cudahys notified the  police and emplojred a score of private detectives, avIio at once Avent  to work on the ease. As the boy  had little money with him tlie  theory that he might have decided  to take.a trip unkjiown JjoJii^liail-  "entsTis not credited  .; Half a hundred men employed by  Mr..

Business .it Mr. Cudahy's  packing plant in South Omaha'Avas  practically suspended today, nearly  the entire force there joining iu tho  search. The boy's parents aro distracted nt his disappearance, and  the father has offered to pay a substantial reward and ask no questions* if his son shall be returned  home. An auonymous letter has  been received at the Cudahy home  substantiating the fears of the family that he has been kidnaped. It  Avas not until nearly 9 o'clock this  morning that the disappearance of  young Cudahy began to assume a  really serious aspect. At that hour  a man on horseback rode rapidly  by the Cudahy mansion.-and as he  passed the front gate he threw a  letter into the yard.  A servant took the letter into the  house, where it.Avas read, in substance it Avas as follows:  "Mr. E. A. Cudahy: Your son is  s.afe. AVe have him and will take  good care of him, iind Avill return  him to you in consideration of the  payment of $25,000. AVe mean  business. (Signed) Jack."  The remainder of tho note the  police refuse at present to disclose,  as they say it relates to the place  where the money is to bo left and  Avhere the kidnapers are to leave  the boy iu case Mr. Cudahy complies with their terms.

Nelson Evening Miner. No investor in city debentures can rest easy  when he is informed through news-  = papers,_that'jire_,b.eliexeil__bo__bfi_iLe_=  sponsible, that the city whose evidences of indebtedness he owns is  managed by corrupt officials, who  squander the city's revenues in  Avorthless public utilities. Yet this  is exactly what will be the result if  the Nelson Evening Miner is not  muzzled or squelched.  Tiik Nelson Evening Miner, Avere  it paid to befoul its own nest, could  not do the* unclean  act  more frequently.    During   the   tAvo   years  that it has been controlled by its  present managers, it has lost no o'p-  portuuity to give Nelson a black eye;  no opportunity to slander the city  and its people; no opportunity to  make it   appear that   Nelson has  been robbed by its civic officials.  No later than yesterday it said editorially that Nelson had water and  '. light systems that were entirely inadequate, and that  in purchasing  one of   them   the   city  had  been  cheated  out of a good large sum.  Such" statements   are good advertisements  for  the  city of  Nelson.  They will   induce   people to make  their homes in  Nelson;   they will  induce men  with money to come  here and-make investments.    Our  business men should be real proud  of such a newspaper; they should  double its patronage in order that  it continue printing and publishing  its   lying  statements.   The work-  jngmen who have built homes in.  Nelson Avill see their property enhance in value, when the frieuds of  such a newspaper gain control of  the civic offices. Nelson has been  incorporated four yeairs. In these  four years close on to half a million  dollars have been expended in.water  works;' electric light Avorks, sewers,  public grounds and buildings, street  improvements and salaries, and it  is safe to say that no other city in  Canada has more to show for the  amount of money expended. No  city in Canada is as Avell spoken of  by transient visitors; but it remains for a newspaper that exists  through charity to constantly  blacken the tOAvn's reputation and  standing, in order to please a little  coterie of small-minded snarlers and  place-hunters.  Tub Nelson Evening Miner,  the  TO THE ELECTORS OF NELSON:  At tho request of a number of electors--, I havo  decided lo olVur myself as a candidulo for mayor  at the coiuiu-_ civic elections. 1 have served as  alderman two yean* of tho four during  which (ho city has been conducting its own affairs, and my record while in the council oti the  questions that are now the most important issues  beforo the people of the city is such as will bear  inspection. **  1 believe that the city has valuable asasts in tho  water ami electric liy-lit system.-*, and while in  the council I did everything possible to safeguard  these nsset-s; and if elected mayor no act or vote  of m'na wi'l bo iu favor of allowing auy outside  corporate interest to become a competitor with  tic* city in the business of electric lighting, a  business in which tho city has already invested  $70.t)0n. '������  While in the council in 1S97, I voted iu favor cf  incorporating a fair wage clause in all contracts,  aud that principle was carried out in both letter  and spirit. 1 see no reason to chanue my views  on thai question now. And 1 believe, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that the city can get as good valuo for the  money spent by having the greatbulk of its work  done by day's labor as by the contract system,  and no good reason can be advanced why the  city should not pay tho same rate of wages and  work men the same number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises.  I am in favor of giving the businosi and property interests every safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe the tire department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent-wit h '.he  rovenues of the city.  Nelson should be kept in advance of its rivals,  and 'everything possible must be done to induce manufacturing enterprise' to locat') here,  for it is the payrolls that build up the cities of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the  people ot Nelson are tolerant. I boliove that this  spirit of toleration should be continued, and I  will if elected mayor do no .act to abridge or curtail the rights or privileges of one class of our.  citizens merely because another class may have  different views.  Tho city lias made a start in permanp.nt, street  improvements, and I am in favor of continuing  these improvements as fast as possible, vi ith due  regard to the revenues of the city.  If elected mayor, I am in a position and will  pledge myself to devote my time to the conduct  of the city'u business.  FRANK FLETCHER.  Nelson, necember loth, 1000.

A RAILWAY TO, THE ARCTIC.  In a uoniniunieutioii to the state  depai'tniPiit, the United States consul at Niagara Falls, Harlan AV".  Brush, writes as follows' of. the  great railroad enterprise to connect  the Groat Lakes with Hudson's  Buy:  The talk and plans of decades  have finally taken form, and a railway   connecting* tlie Great Lukes  with Hudson's Bay is now actually  under   construction.   The  railway  plunges hundreds of miles through  nh  unbroken  wilderness,  with ��� no  cities,  towns   or   even  villages  to  afford trafiic.    In fact, only Indian  guides   and    hunters    have    ever  attempted   to penetrate the  great  wilderness to the north.   Nevertheless, the railroad,  which is  known  as   the   Algoina  Central, is  being  built in the most thorough manner  possible, with  the best equipment  available, able to stand almost any  strain upon'it, and capable of good  service for years to come.    Eighty-  five pound steel rails are used, and  tho  locomotives  are  of   enormous  si/.e,     weighing    l'Jii    tons -when  equipped  for trafiic.    The  engines  are'so  massive that railway companies were afraid of  the strain on  bridges,  and  they  were deliveied  from Chicago  to  Sault Ste.  Marie  by the lake route on steam ferries.  The  new railway starts at Sault  Ste.   Mnrie.    Ground   was   broken  less  than i)0 days ago, but  already  2f> miles of road aro completed and  in upe, and  tho railway is  pushing  forward at the rate of half a mile a  day.    It is expected that it will require three  years  to  complete the  road.    The  millions of   capital in-  vol'ved came mostly from the United  States, but the builders have made  careful   computations as to traffic  and are conlident that the road will  realize all  that  is promised  as an  investment.    It   had its   origin; in  the  necessity of bringing'supplies  of pulp wood from the far north to  the Sault mills, but  it "opens up as  well a region that is fabulously rich  iu minerals and  timber.    The mineral wealth is said to be practically  inexhaustible, consisting of- mountains of iron, copper and other valuable ores.   Anioug other discoveries  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson Cits*, N. W. T.  is that of a solid bed of gypsum  .eight miles in length. In timber  the supplies are equally valuable.  For hundreds of miles, it is claimed,  the railway will run through dense  forests of big trees, including birch,  maple, hard elm, tamarack, spruce,  balsam, poplar and white pine.  Curly birch, which can be bought  along the railway for 40 cents a  cord, commands $10a thousand feet  iii the United States. Elm wood  that can be cut at 10 cents a cord  sells for $2." a thousand feet at  Minneapolis and other points in tho  northwest that aro within easy  shipping distance.  The Ontario government is greatly interested in the opening up''of  this rich territory, and has aided.in.  the construction of the Tail way by  a big grant of land. At the end of  the first fifteen miles the railway  commenced to haul heavy consignments of timber, and traffic is following closely upon construction.  It is announced that particular attention will bo'given to transient  traffic, and at every stopping place  .a first-class hotel will be built by  the railway. At Hudson Bay it is  proposed to establish a modern seaside hotel. Game is plentiful, and  scores of lakes and rivers that are  teeming with fish will be reached  by the railway. The scenery, bracing climate, hunting and fishing are  expected to attract thousands of  tourists. Tho railway also intends  to handle Hudson Bay fish products  on a�� large scale.

Bratt was charged at the police court yesterday with stealing  an overcoat, the property of R. E.  "Esterbrook from the Lakeview  hotel.

A letter was received at the. provincial post office yesterday addressed to A. R. Daucey, Nelson,  Northwest Territories.

The recently opened extension of  Baker street into the C. P. It. yards  is in anything but good order, as  one hack man discovered to his dismay yesterday.

The members of the board of  trade seem to havo taken a leaf out  of the city council's book. Last  night's session of the board was to  have been the last of the year, but  at 9 o'clock the only members who  had put in an appearance were G. V.  Holt, president, H. E. Croasdaile,  T. Allen, J. M. Lay, John Banner-  man, J. F. Weir and secretary  Swannell. Eight members constitute a quorum and president Holt  adjourned the meeting in despair  after giving half an hour's grace.  The board of 1900 has been most  unfortunate in regard to its meetings, fully one half of the regular  sessions during the year having  failed to attract enough members  to   transact   business,     The   first  meeting of the new year takes  place on the second AVednesday in  January.  - Smallpox Almost Epidemic.
