NELSOK: FEIDAY MORNING DECEMBER 28 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MINIM INTERESTS OF NEW DENVER  The  Coming  Year  Promises   Well   For   That  Section  of the  Slocan  Country.  STRIKE ON THE ROTH-IRON HORSE ENTERS THE RAGE  The mining men from the  Denver camp are disposed to  forward to the new year  equanimity in anticipation  lively season. A number of  erties ou which work lias  carried   on   during   the year  ,-%���  New  look  with  of a  prop-  been  just  closing will  ship  ore and  a camp  whicli is producing ore cannot fail  to  progress particularly when the  quality is as high grade as the dry  and   galena   ores   from   the   New  Denver  district.     It  is  even  said  that work may be recommenced on  the Mountain Chief, a   move which  would go far .toward  contributing  to the prosperity of the camp.   The  Chief is the pioneer property in the  New Denver camp and its  history  is familiar to every mining man  in  the Kootenays.    For the benefit of  geueral readers  it iriay be  stated  that theproperty is located a' mile  and a half east of New  Denver on  the Three Forks road.     11 is owned  by George Hughes of   Sandon  and  A. W. McKeowu  of Salt Lake.    In  1804. a   largo  amount of ore  was  taken out of the Chief,  packed on  horses   to   Three  Forks and then  hauled to Kaslo for shipment to the  smelters.    The quality  of  the  ore  cau be estimated from the fact (hat  the  shipment  netted  a  handsome  a, return- after  paying  the  compar-  *' atively   enormous   cost  of    transportation and treatment.     Two or  three years ago the mine was shut  down  aud  has   not   been  worked  since.       The  recommencement, of  shipping would "give the section  a  decided boom.  Work will be commeneed-shortly  ou the Mollio Hughes group, located  a mile west of the town. - The property compriseslive crown granted  claims, two fractions  and  one full  clahriadded since the balance were  crown' granted.    Tlie   owners   are  Harry, Sheran,  II.   Cleaver  and  T.  Avisou of New Denver and George  H. Crawford of Spokane.  A section  of   the   group   consisting   of   the  Pinto claim and JJinto fraction is  under  lease  to Tuuks   ��fc   Avison.  The lessees have a  small  shipment  of ore from  the  property at  the  Hall Mine3 smelter afc  the  present  -time.    The ore is a  high grade dry  product, and  it  is estimated that  the test shipment will average  100  ounces of silver aud ,$($ in gold. The  owners of the group have  shipped  altogether  (52  tons   of   clean .oro,  which netted the neat sum of .$3000.  "Some~$ 10'000iias"been_exp"eude"d-o!f  the Mollie   Hughes  from  time to  time, and   the   owners   will start  work again at an early date.  The well-known Hartney property, three miles southeast of the  town, is ready to ship and it is expected that the management will  move the ore down the hill when  -sufficient snow falls to render this  possible. About 1000 sacks of ore  are ready to ship and it is expected  the property when once started  will ship continuously. The Hartney is in a well advanced stage' of  .development.  Amps Thompson aud others own  a promising property located about  5000 feet above the Mollie Hughes  group. Last year they shipped  seven tons of ore which netted  them $700. The development this  year consists of 50 feet of cross-  cutting to tap the vein at a depth  of 150 feet. Another 50 feet should  bring the crosscut to the ore body  ���and if the quality is ��� as good as the  surface showing indicates the own-  era are likely to ship more ore during the comiug season.  '-���On the Home Run group of two  claims and a. fraction Morau <fc  Greenlee are working. The group  is located a mile and a half east of  New Denver, adjoining the Mountain Chief, aud is a galeua proposition. A crosscut is now in 100  feet toward the vein aud another  100 feet will reach the ore. The  property has an excellent surface  showing.  Reports are being circulated regarding the resumption of work on  the-Alpha property and also at the  Galeua Farm, rumor stating that a  strong syndicate will amalgamate  the   Galena  Farm   and  Noonday!  properties. It has been announced  that the management of the Marian  will recommence mining early in  January and these, with other  features, should contribute to a  prosperous season in the camp.  Iron Horse to Work,  Mark Manley of Sloean City, who  is one of the principals in the Iron  group on Ten-mile creek, states that  the company recently organized to  operate the property is rapidly  getting into shape and will start  work about the end of January. A  number of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania,  parties are interested ' in tho company, which is a strong corporation. The Iron Hoise adjoins-the  Enterprise mine", owned by the London & B.C. Goldfields, and is, an  excellent prospect. The showing  of clean ore on the surface -is en-  couraging>an"d the new^owners will  proceed to demonstrate the- merit  of the proposition.  Strike on the Ruth.  A report is to hand of an important strike on the Ruth mine at  Sandon. No. 5 tunnel broke into  a fine body of ore a day or two ��� before Christmas and wheu the property closed down over the holidays  the extent of the ore had not been  determined, but it is said to be over  two feet in width. The fact, if  confirmed,-will be of * special im-*  portance as it has been said of the  Slocan properties, aud the Ruth in  particular, that the values would  pinch out with depth. The theory  is disproved to a certain extent at  least by the reported strike on. the'  Ruth at the lowest level yet reached  on the property..  which foundered off Malaga harbor.  The boys who were saved from the  wreck are expected to arrive next  week at Wilhelnishaven and to go  aboard the ship.  Panama Canal Proposition,'  Paris, December 27.���The new  Panama Canal Company at its  meeting today adopted the report,  during the course of which the  directors, referring to the United  States' commissioners' report, said:  "We think that a reasonable agreement Avherein the United States  aud Colombian governments and  our company could be united is  realizable and might finally determine the proininence of the-United  States  in favor of Panama.  FIENDS  FOR  ATTENDANTS  INHUMAN  United States' Wheat Crop.  Washington, December 27.���The  statistician of the , department of  agriculture estimates the United  States wheat crop of 1900 at  522,229,505 bushels, the area actually harvested being 42,4951385  acres, an average per acre of 12.9  bushel*?. The production of winter  wheat is estimated at 350,025,400  bushels and that of spring wheat at  172,204,090 bushels,"the" area actually harvested being 20,235.895  acres in the former case and 10,-  259,488 acres in the latter.

Picquart Objects.  Paris, December 27.���Colonel  Picquart has written to M. Waldeck  Rosseau warmly protesting against  the inclusion of himself in the amnesty bill. He says he does not  wish to owe his reputation to such  a measure-and indignantly repudiates the rumors that compensation  will be offered to him now that he  has been amnestied. He declared  that, iu order to_ demonstrate the  falseness of such stories, he renounces his appeal to the state  council against the decree placing  him in the red list, thus disposing  of the accusation that he is seeking  advancement of decorations.  Germany's Naval Progress.  Berlin, December 27.���The Berliner Post, summarizing Germany's  naval progress this year, 9ays that  seven vessels have been launched,  including two battleships, one  large cruiser and four small cruisers. The paper also calls attention  to the "unprecedented activity in  the,building of warships," six of  which are now in process of construction, including four battleships, one large cruiser   and   one  gunboat.     A   schoolship   will   be      -fitted out to replace the Gneisau, I saved  London, December 27. ��� The  latest dispatches from South Africa  show that lord Kitchener has succeeded in holding the invading  Boers in check. But he lias not  yet" been successful in expelling  them "from Capo" Colony, as small  commandos "continue * to - display  activity over the country. It is  questionable whether his proclamation will have any effect until geueral Dewet has been captured. .The  Boers are like'y to regard it as a  sign of weakness and they have a  wholesome dread of Dewet's vengeance   if   they   surrender.  Queen Victoria, it is said, has approved the proposal to institute a  new order of knighthood to reward  officers who have served in South  Africa.- The order will probably be  called the Star of Africa.  A dispatch from Vreiburg, dated  'December 27th, says the Boers in  considerable numbers were making  an ��� unexpected effort . westward.  They had one hundred and fifty  wagons. The dispatch suggests  that they were treking to Damara-  laud, although the Boers themselves  "den iMTmclraiTi ntentiori^  Ngwcastu!, Natal, December 27.  ���The Boers celebrated Christmas  day in this district between Stau-  derton and Ingogo by more or less  determined attacks upon every  British garrison along the lines of  communication. These were, however, in all cases successfully repulsed. At Utrecht the Boer commandant sent iii a demand for  whifrky, cigars and -- Christmas  luxuries.failing which he threatened  the town. His demand was ignored  and he attacked Utrecht in strong  force Christmas morning. They  were repulsed with loss, the British  loss being slight. '  Not to Eo Invited.  Washington,-December 2S.-~No-  thing is known at the White House  concerning the story cabled from  London to the effect that the New  York Yacht Club would invite emperor William of Germany and the  prince of Wales to witness the  yacht races for the American cup  next summer and that president  McKinley would write concurrently  to the kaiser and princo of Wales  inviting them to visit the. United  States. At the White House it is  stated that nothing of the kind is  contemplated.  Serious London Fire.  London, December 27.��� Oue of  the most serious fires which have  occurred in* the east of Loudon  during the last ten years broke out  today at the East India docks. Five  immense sheds filled with goods,  including 1000 bales of hemp and a  quantity of jute, were consumed.  Buildings iu the neighborhood were'  -New York, December 27.���The  inquest into the death of Louis H.  Hilliard in theiusane pavilion of  Bellevue Hospital ��� on December  12bh was . begun today before  coroner Fitzpatrick. Three nurses  from the Mill training school who  who were on duty at the time in  the pavilion are accused of causing  his death.  Thomas J. Minner, a newspaper  reporter, "saj'she was in the Bellevue insane yard when Hilliard was  taken there. When the mau arrived, Dean cried out, "Hurrah,  here comes another, bum." The  witness described Hilliard's refusing  to eat and-said that Dean said, 'Til'  make you eat," and then grappled  Hilliard by the throat and threw  him to the floor aud held him there  until he" was . black--iu-. the face,  kneeling on liis chest, while Marshall  and*\Donnelly.:. helped to, hold him.  Hilliard was'again told to eat aud  declared he < would , riot' and ' the  three hit and kicked ��� him. -' Then  they dragged Hillard. head flrst  into the .bathroom.' \They*took his  clothes off,vgave him a shower bath  and hit him in>the stomach. Deau  cried, '���I'll fix*, you; you think you  cando as you please." Then they  took Hilliard into.his room. Next  morning Hilliard" -was feeble - and  seemed to be in pain, his head was  covered with bruises and there were  blue marks on-his throat.- Minner  explained that Davis had said to  him that "If. .any ".of you say anything of w.lmtVgoes, ori here we'll  -fix yoii. "We h'rive the power of.life,  and death hero.'-'  Witness said that at supper on  Wednesday oue of the nurses asked  Ililliai'l if he- would "eat. He  said he was not. Marshall and  Dean then caught him and: he was  kicked all about, - Dean and Marshall holding him while Davis  kicked him about the legs and  thighs and even about the body.  Then they got a sheet and rolled it  up and putting it around Jlilliard's  neck twisted it tighter and .'tighter.  They took him into the bathroom  aud turned on the water without  taking off his clothes. They  drenched.his head first and put him  down on the floor. The witness  heard Davis say, "Dean, come here;  I think he is dying." Minner denied  that Hilliard'-was over ��� violent or  mado an  effort to use violence to-  _ward_the__nu rses. J.__Donli n ,_cor^  oner's physician, who made the  autopsy on the body of Hilliard,  testified as to the condition in which  he found the body���an abrasion in  the right elbow, contusions in- the  loins and side and shoulder and on  the head and all along the left leg.  He said that three ribs were broken,  the lungs congested, thehycid bone  broken and that the trachea showed  internal hemorrhages. Death, he  said, had been caused by asphyxiation aud by fracture of the ribs.  The inquest adjourned till tomorrow.  lepers on board to the Philippines  as a present to be cared for by the  Catholic priests. Thus the seed  was planted, and as no practical  methods, were adopted to eradicate  the"disease or prevent its spread, it  has taken firm root. A house-to-  house inspection begun last January found more than 100 lepers  concea'iled-in dwellings. These were  sent to San Lazaro hospital in Manila, but -many others escaped into  the surrounding country. A commission is now engaged in the work  of selecting a suitable island for  the purpose of isolating all the  lepers in the archipelago.  Perished With Her Children.  Dubois, December 27.���In the  little -village of Segel, ten miles  from Brockville, this morning the  house of J. Ii. Ritchie was burned  and " Mrs. Ritchie was, with her  little ^daughter, a child of three  years of age, lost iu the flames. She  ran upstairs to where her children  were sleeping and carrying her  three months' old baby in hei\_arms  threw it from the win low. It" sustained no injuries. * She then directed her attention to tho two  little daughters; who-wero overcome by the fire arid smoke, and  perished with them.

St. Pbtbrshurg, December 27.���  Diplomatic circles here have been  informed that the czar will leave  the Crimea within a week, but will  not arrive here before the Russian  New Year, spending the intervening period with grand duke Sergius,  uncle of the czar, and governor of  Moscow, whose wife is a sister of  tho czarina.  A scaffolding is being erected for  the annual ceremony of blessing  the River Neva by the czar.  Leprosy in the Philippines.  Washington, December 27.���-Au  appended report to general Mac-  Arthur's review of the civil affairs  of the Philippine islands for the  past fiscal year gives rather startling facts regarding the introduction  and prevalence of leprosy in the  islands. According to the estimates  of the Franciscan fathers, says the  report, there are no less than 80,000  lepers in the archipelago, the major  portion of these being in the Vis-  cayas. Leprosy was introduced in  1(533, when the emperor* of  Japan   sent    a   ship    with     150  Pekin, December 27.���The British  have increased their garrison at  Yang Tsun by 100 men, with horses  and three guns. A flying column  of IG00 cavalry will scour the  country between Tien Tsin and  Yang Tsun. Colonel Tullock's regiment -will' return"' to .destroy: the  towns he recently held. This is  owing to the fact that it has  been  discovered that a number of Boxers  unquestionably made them headquarters. The British authorities  say they do not expect serious opposition from tho Boxers, mainly  because tbey lack arms. Fortunately the Chinese are afraid to trust  them with arm*?. A detachment of  the Sixth United SLates cavalry,  the Ninth infantry and Ninth  artillery will arrive tomorrow to  investigate the reported burning of  Christians by Boxers as reported  by Rev. Mr. Kellar, the Presbyterian minister. The expedition  will be accompanied by lieutenant-  colonel T. J. .Vint, of the Sixth  cavalry." t  Tibn Tsin, December 27.���A force  of   1100 British  troops   with  two  TiFTd  guns and a Maxim-have gone to  Yan Tsu to attack the Boxers there  and protect the railway. The  Germans and Japs are clearing the  place of pirates.  Peace Terms Unsatisfactory.  SiiANCi-ILu, December 27.���The  Chinese papers heie object to the  proposed peace terms. The Universal Gazette considers that the  princes and officials who are to be  punished should be named. It is  questionable whether Tung Fu  Hsiang is included among these  punishments, and as prince Tuan is  concerned, it is well known the  Chinese peace commissioners have  been instructed not to consent to  any punishment of any person of  royal blood exceeding imprisonment. Some of the native journals  hold that the presence of permanent  legation guards'will render the emperor's return impossible, because  these would be a menace to him.  Germany's Singular Action.  London, December 27.���The proclamation announcing the ^division  offerees around Pekin, Pao Ting  and Tien Tsin into districts placed  severally under the control of different military commanders has  been posted, according to a dispatch  to the Morning -Post from Pekin  December 20th, in the German district only. It recognizes the Chinese military aud civil governments,  but makes no reference to count  von Waldersee. The German action,  says the correspondent, is strange.  She was formerly so severe and now  recognizes Chinese authority. Tlie  largest districts, tho dispatch points  out, have been left to the British  and French troops.  Victoria, December 27.���The  royal mail steamer Miowera brings  news that the ship Ladore, while  waiting for a coal cargo at New  Castle, New South Wales, on December 1st, was caught in a storm,  and the wind striking lier on the  port quarter, she went over. Fortunately there was but fourteen  feet of water where she anchored  and her masts prevented her from  turning turtle. The crew, twelve  iu number, had a sensational escape  from death, many being just hauled  out of the water that was rising in  the vessel. It being impossible to  raise her, she will be a total loss.  From Queensland news ��� is - received that a prospector named P.  Killane had been killed and eaten  by blacks whom he engaged to  pack for him. He was missed, and  after some search his remains were  found by police, andfrom their disposition, whicli were much scattered, it was believed' the blacks  had killed and eaten him. , From  evidences which afterwards came  to light and which were proven he  had evidently made camp when  killed, having presumably made a  find iu the vicinity where he was  killed.

A squadron of police met  the pirates from Tugeri at the  mouth of the river and a fight on  the water ensued, the police capturing or sinking five junks. No  prisoners were taken, but it is estimated that thirty were shot or  drowned. There were no casualties  among the government forces.  Afterwards the Tugeri- made another raid on tho Morthead river  villages, killing five persons. The  Tugeri tribe for years have given a  good deal of trouble.

Toronto, December 27.���Sadie  McKendrick, 15 years old, told the  police an extraordinary story of  outrage yesterday afternoon and  investigation proved the story true.  She,alleges that about 5 o'clock  Saturday afternoon, while engaged  in Christmas shopping, she was  sei/.ed by a man who gagged her  and put her into a cab just opposite the Confederation Life Insurance Company building in the  centre of the business part of the  city.

If a  mayoralty candidate's platform is  good, then he should have a council  behind him  who will see that he  carries it out to the letter.   Candidate Fletcher has a good platform,  and if he should bo elected on it, he  should have the assistance of aldermen who will help him carry out  his,pledges.   There are men in the  present council  who would be no  more harmonious with Mr. Fletcher,  should  he  be elected mayor, than  they have been with mayor 1 [ous-  ton.     They   would   not   work   in  harmony with alderman McKillop,  even, were he elected-mayor.   Some  of the present aldermen do not care  to   seek re-election, and   some of  those  who  would  like   to   be   reelected would surely" be defeated  were they to offer themselves.  to the occasion? Will they take  advantage of their opportunity?  Give thepeople of Spokane oi* of  Vancouver the opportunity that .is  within the reachof the people of Nelson, and there would be but one  answer to the questions. The people  should elect a mayor and six aldermen who have nerve to reach' for  what is in sight; by doing so they  will make Nelsou second to no eity  in the province.  Austin Cokuin, who owns the  telegraph lino between Spokane  and Nelson, is receiving considerable deserved praise for his liberality to his employees. He has  distributed $2000 of this year's profits of his telegraph lines to the  boys who operated the lines. The  Tribune Association, Limited, of  Nelson   has gone Mr.  Corbin one  The people of Nelson have  the future of the city in their  own hands. They can make Nelson the chief eity of the province,  or they can let it remain in the  class that ifc is now in. Nelson can  be made the first city in the province by the expenditure of-less  than $150,000 in developing power  that is now going to waste in Kootenay river.   Are our people equal,  better. It has distributed all its  profits for the year 1900 among its  employees.   On February 12th last, the chairman of the finance committee submitted an estimate of the expected  receipts of the city for the year  1900. The total from all sources  was placed at $7*1,800. Yesterday  the books at the city office showed  that about $71,000 had been received. The following are tho principal accounts:  estate tax collections, and that they  are paid largely out of .general  revenue receipts. The figures; given  above also show that the i-evenue  of the city is almost entirely  derived from indirect taxation.  These figures should be studied by  the people of Nelson, for they have  great bearing on the town's future.  Nelson, in the four years it has  been incorporated, has practically  been run by revenue obtained by  indirect taxation. Is it in a better  position financially than towns of  the same size that are run largely  by direct taxation?  LUMBERING   IN  KOOTENAY  Extensive Interests and Large Output.  The lumbering industry in the  East Kootenay district is rapidly  assuming large proportions. The  firms operating in the district have  a- vast and constantly growing  market for their product in the  Northwest Territories, which are  taking all the lumber the Kootenay  mills can supply and asking for  larger supplies. The winter cut is  in full swing at the present time  and it will be more extensive by  hundreds of thousands of feet than  any previous yea-i* in the history of  the country.  .7. R. Martin, timber inspector for  East and West Kootenay, has returned from* a tour of duty along  the Crow's Nest road, and gives  some interesting'particulars of the  work now in progress. The center  of the industry is at Cranbrook, in-  the neighborhood of which several,  of the largest. concerns, are operating. It. Leach &-Co." of Cran-,  brook have established their camp  on colonel Baker's exempt land on  whicli no royalties can be levied.  They have a crew of 15 men, of  whom six are cutters. Up to date  750,000 feet of fiue pine and tamarac  has been cut and it is the firm's in--  tention to take out two million feet  by spring. The same firm is operating a small mill at .Palmer's Bar,  five miles west of Cranbrook, which  is now shut down for the present  after having cut 885,000 feet of  lumber since September last. ,  Robinson <fc MacKenzie of Cranbrook, are cutting ou preempted  land two and a half miles from the  town. They employ a crew of nineteen men, including six, cutters,  who have already taken out 200,000  feet of logs. The company figures  on a cut of 1,500,000 feet during  the winter.  Leask & Slater, also of Cranbrook,  have four cutters on Hyde Baker's  land two miles from the town.  They estimate-their winter cut at  750,000 feet.'  McDougall & Proctor of Fernie.  are operating on licensed timber  limits two miles west of Fernie, and  will work all winter and summer.  They contemplate cutting 5,000,000  feet in the year 1901.  The mammoth C. P. R. mill at  Fernie is being moved to the coast.  It was erected during the construction period to handle 100,000 feet  daily, butfthe'plant was not suitable to the class of lumber available in the interior, and the mill  was practically never operated.

The collection of real estate taxes cannot be  forced, and there is now over $7000  due the city from that source, and  about the same amount from all  other sources. These figures go to  show that the interest on debentures aud sinking fund payments  cannot actually be made from real  and one of the boilers was washed  down the river. A stock of 0,000,-  000 feet of logs was cut for the  mill, and the 4,000,000 remaining is  now being cut by A. D. McCrae of  Fernie. This big railroad mill and  the stock of logs was part of the  assets seized by the province last  summer for non-payment of timber  royalties.  The smaller mills are also busy.  The Moyie mill will cut 1,000,000  feet on Moyie lake and tho S. W.  Flowers plant at Michel, recently  transferred to other parties, cut  110,000 l'eob since September,  llreekenridge &Lund have takena  contract to supply the C. P. 11. with  2,200,000 ties, which will bo taken  out under hand loggers licenses  and on preemptions.  It is probable that a number of  new mills will be started within  the next few months. McNab afc  Ryan of Cranbrook are expected to  put in a plant at .affray, the second  station this side of Fernie, with a  capacity of 15,000 to 20,000 feet per  day. S. H. Mott has a plant lying  at Hosmer, which will probably be  set; up aiid operated there during  the yeai*.  Recently a demand has arisen*in  the Territories for posts and several  hundred cords have been shipped  within the last tew months afc a  rate of li cents per foofc. This  would seem to indicate that the era  of fences on the prairies has commenced.

Yesterday wrts an extremely busy  day in the supreme court chambers  here over which his honor judge  I'Yirin presided. Tlie docket comprised .several matters of more than  average importance and four cases  entered were not reached. These,  with other questions arising in the  interim, will come up on Monday,  when the list will comprise from 10  tit 12 cases. The court business at  Nelson is constantly increasing, and  with the increase the necessity of a  supreme court judge becomes more  pressing. Judge Forin is now holding two chamber sittings weekly  us compared with one per week at  Vancouver, and iu addition has a  territory of several hundred square  miles to look after.  Tlie most important matter disposed   of   yesterday   was   that of  IJonjamin   S.  Davis vs. ,T. M. Dunn  and the Sunset Silver Mining company, in  which  W. A.  Macdonald,'  on   behalf of  the   defendant com-"  pany, made application " lo  compel  tho plaintiff, who  resides  in  California and is therefore  out of the  jurisdiction  of this  court, to  give  security, for the costs of this action.  The plaintiff was represented by S.  S.-Taylor, Q. C,  who  opposed  the  application on tlie ground  that the  defendant   company,   while   nominally defendants, were really plaintiffs aiid as such wore  not  entitled  i to. security for costs  because the  -st^Avwas for.the"benefit of the company as well as the-plaintiff, being  brought to conipel Dunn to transfer  to'the Sunset company the"Sunset  lnineral'claim for/tlie benefit of the  * shareholders of whom, the plaintiff  : is ono. -The second .point taken in  .objection, to the   application   was  that the defendant--company had  no right-to-incur costs "as the suit'  was for their, benefit-and .their  interests  would   be, '.fully;. protected  without their   even appearing  or  defending, hence thoy_had'no right  to  require  security for  costs.    In  taking the objections-noted  above  plaintiff   relied    on    Belmont   vs.  Aynard IV C. P. D. page 353, Anglo  vs.  Itowlin  10 Ont.'Pr. Rep.  page  '592,   and   Doer   vs.    Rand,    same  volume, page 105.    After  considering   the   authorities    quoted,    his  honor   dismissed   the   defendants'  summons.  The Lode Star Cases.  In the suit of McKenzie vs. Lode  Star, P. 1_. Wilson applied on behalf  of * certain subsequent execution  creditoi s for costs out of the funds.  =It-was=deeided=by"his=honoi4_h'i_=all=  tho execution creditors ��� were entitled, to secure their costs of judgments and executions as first claims.  The point at issue was to determine  whether or not the creditors, who  secured the first executions should  satisfy their claims before others  obtaining executions later.

W. C. BLOCK  EARLY  IN  1901.  Canada Drug & Book Co.  Limited.  It Was a Special Meeting.  A special" meeting of the city  council was held yesterday afternoon, and there were present :  Mayor Houston, and aldermen Hall,  Arthur, Morrison, and Wilson. The  minutes of the last meeting were  read, aud alderman Arthur objected  to that portion which set forth tho  views of mayor Houston re the investigation of charges preferred  against W; J. Thompson, who  was suspended as chief, of the fire  department. He wrote a resolution  ordering the mayor's remarks to be  expunged from tho. minutes, but  none of the other aldermen could  see their way clear to second the  resolution, and the minutes stood  approved. Thus closes the Last of  the bickerings that are likely to  take place in the present council.  Alderman Wilson moved a resolution, which was seconded by  .alderman Hall, that the action of  the mayor in applying for land for  a site for a power station ou Kootenay river be approved, and the  resolution was adopted unanimously.  Alderman Wilson moved a resolution, which was seconded by  alderman Hall, that .T. K. Strachan  be made returning officer for the  eoming-munieipal=eleetion-and=that=  E. A.. Crease bo made deputy for  the West ward ; the nominations  to be made in the city office, and  tho polling place for the East ward  to be in the police court room, aud  for the West ward in the olllce of  the Exchequer Gold Mining Company. The resolution was carried.  Aldermen Arthur and Morrison,  for the finance committee, reported  that payrolls and accounts aggro-  gating about $.500 be paid, and it  was so ordered.  A communication from the secretary of the charity, organization  asking that the council pay the  debts of the organization, aggregating .$98, was referred to the  finance committee.  A communication from Thomas  Sargent re a franchise for an electric district messenger system was  read, and the opinion seemed to be  that the matter had better be. left  to Mie incoming council. The clerk,  however, was instructed to notify  Mr. Sargent to lay his proposed  agreement before the council for  consideration.  The first claim against ,the city  foi\daraages was ordered paid. It  amounted to $20. The claimant,  Thomas Oates, works at the Poor-  man mino. One evening recentlj'  he, along with his little daughter,  attempted to reach "the Canadian  Paacilic depot by the way of Vernon  street. In grading for new sidings,  the railway company has left Vernon street about 15 feet in the air,  and Mr. Oates fell from the street  to the railway grade, and received  injuries that laid him up for several  days. The council, after ordering  the payment of the* claim, which  was a very reasonable one, ordered  Vernon street temporarily closed as  a thoroughfare west from Palls  street, and Railway street closed  between Baker and Vernon streets.  At the suggestion of mayor  Houston a .resolution was passed  authorizing J. B. Bliss and C. E.  Beasley to make a thorough inspection of the electric light,installations and. water service connections, so that '"'he incoming council  could haveaccurate data as to the  leakages that are said to exist in  these two. revenue-producing public  utilities. tt  No other business of importance  was transacted and tho council  adjourned.  Reputation More Than Local.  -B.-C. Riblet of Nelson has gained  a reputation for building wire rope  tramways that is more than local.  Many of the best tramways in  Kootenay were made and installed  by Mr. Riblet. and it makes Nelson  men feel proud of their town when  visiting adjoining mining camps to  see the following 'on tramway,  machinery: "-'Manufactured by B.  C. Riblet, Nelson, B. C." Mr. Riblet  lias secured contracts for the  erection of three tramways in Peru,  South Araet*ica. One is 6500 feet  long and the other two are G000  feet each. The Riblet Iron Works  of Nelson, employing hundreds of  men, may be an industry as famous  in mining circles at no distant date-  as is the E. P. Allis Irou Works of  Milwaukee today.  Spill on the C. P. R.  About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon an outward bound freight  train in charge.of conductor A. B.  Clark left the rails a short distance  this side of : Robson and several  cars were wrecked. The emergency  train was out on the Slocan branch  aud had ju9t succeeded in placing  engine No. 733. on the rails after  several days' work when they wero  instructed, to proceed to Robson.  Ten hours' work cleared the line.  The Rossland passenger train was  only delayed, a short time, as the  ferry ran down to Sproafs Landing, where passengers were transferred to the Nelson train. ��  ���__*?���  EEC.

Omaha, Nebraska, December 27.  ���All possibility of capturing Pat  Crowe in this vicinity has been  abandoned, and the.police, who  had been especially active iu the  case, have now settled down to a  systematic search for evidence  from the clues now in their possession"'. The police think St. Joseph  is the last city in the middle west  that Pat Crowe would visit at such  a time as this. Another development in tlie case is the fact that  the man who rented the cottage on  Grovenei- street gave the name of  J. L. Connor. Crowe has a brother  named F. Connor, and those working in the matter are inclined to  believe, in view of this fact, that  Crowe rented the house.
