Last evening 1 lie supporters of the present city council held meetings in'the  Kast and West wards of the city for the  purpose of nominating candidates in support of the candidature of Mayor Houston. The meetings were enthusiastic, but  lack of Mrice prevents Tiik TmirnxK  from publishing a full account of tho proceedings at the West Ward meeting. The  "men whom the supporters of the present  council have named are too well known  to the people of Nelson to require extended    notice.    JOour    of    them     have  ; already had experience upon ;tJie  "council board, and the other two���-  Thomas M. Ward and William Irvine���are  well known to all who have been in Nelson long.enough to vote. The six men  who comprise this ticket may be set.down:  as those.who will compose the next board  of aldermen for the city of Nelson.  The ineetiug of the electors of the  ISast  Ward   who are - supporting   the-present  civic administration, was held in  the dining room oi'~the Queen's hotel, the call for  the hieetitigliaving been issued   by alderman- James A. Gilker,  chairman  of  the  East Ward campaign' committee.    There  ',. were present; over 50 representative electors and. throughout the meeting was harmonious and enthusiastic.  ���.    The -'meeting was' organized about 8.30  .o'clock,! R. F. Lemon  being  voted to  the  ��� jehairaridS. S;'Taylor, Q.O., being elected  'secretary.    Following this a   motion  was  made and  carried  that- the   meeting be  .held with closed doors.  The chairman then read the notice calling the meeting, drawing attention to the  ���:���- fact was a meeting of-the support-  - ers of the candidacy of John Houston for  mayor, and that the chief object of the  meeting was the selection of three suitable men: to represent the East Ward as  aldermen inthe next municipal council.  Before proceeding with the nominations  aldermanTeefzel addressed the meeting.  He said that he thought it would simplify the work of nominating ii those present  ...weregiven'to understand that both  him-  V-self and alderinan'Gilkei- had decided not  ^ito-agaiu'seek.the suffrages of the electors.  ��,J��Wit^re^pe^c^i^':Jvi.n^e'lf,'* atul he under-  ��fvstbocl*U^ aider man  $-���&ilkei^-Jiis^pi.uvat^^ the e'nsu-  j%^',j n'gv��ear ^^ nuicli ot his time  ��:. f �� ha^J]i(��^^ to devote-that  ��:��,"��� Hti?entii^nltbliu"uhicipal Vuatters which the  ^\g��eWed*-^^^m1Tch,t-hat:nie could tiofs'ee  ^��"Sislway:fcleatA6^ain^illow his name to  "5"be plactidahtiftmn^ijplf, as many of those  WEEKLY   EDITION:  'SEVENTH   YEAR -NO.  desire of the meeting that he should. So  far as he was concerned the matter rested  entirely with the meeting.  The chairman then asked if anyone else j  desired to address the meeting, and meeting   with  no  response he said  that the  meeting would proceed  with  the nominations.  The lirst name to be received in nomination wits that of Charles Hillyer, who  was proposed by Chas. A. Waterman, and  seconded by Jacob Dover and several  others.'. The mention of alderman Hillyer's  name was received with a generous round  of applause. ''������    "  Thomas M. Ward was placed in nomination by J. H. Mutheson, seconded by  Itobort Reisterer.  John J. Malone was nominated by W.  F. Teet/.el, seconded by Captain Pater-  son and several others, J  W.-H. Grant was,nominated by Charles  Hillyer, but immediately iipou his name  being meutione'd he rose and declined the  nomination with thanks, as he could not  devote the necessary time. ��.  .���There .was a wait of a few minutes after  Mr. Grant'declined- to accept a= nomination.

Malone  were the tinanimous choice of the supporters of the "present administration as the.  representatives of the East Ward in the  next city^ council.The announcement  was received with cheers.       -  .Alderman Hillyery in rising to -thank  the electors for the nomination which he  had reeeived,said that he was pleased to  be in the field again. When-he and his  colleagues were first honored by the citizens of Nelson some 20 odd months ago,  they had assumed the task bfi converting  Nelson from a towu; which had bee'n neglected for several years by the provincial' authorities into a city which would  be second; to hone in the province. With  this end in view the successive cou'uciIs  had undertaken several largeenterprises,  and so far as the councils had progressed  their accomplishments spoke tor themselves. He was pleased to know that  Mayor Houston was again a candidate,  since to,his administrative ability was  due the present satisfactory condition ot  the city's affairs. * With respect to the decision ot alderman Teetzel and alderman  Gilker ifoC to"seek"reelection lie said that  he was sorry that they'were unable to  consent to give the city the advantage "of  their services lor another year..

With"the business Of  a corporation,   as  ==^with*the=biisiness^of-a-priA'ate-indiv-idual,=  ! much depended upon the manner m which  its afftlirs were started, and in reviewing  the work of the first and second councils of  Nelson he thought he could without being  accused of possessing too much vanity  ��say,: that the people of Nelson had been  peculiarly fortunate in the men which  they bad, secured for, the carrying on of  the business of the city. The present  meeting had been called l!0r the purpose  of selecting men who would represent tile  East' Ward ill the next council, and  .although lie could not consent to Allow  his own name to be put in nomination he  would assure such as received the nomination his hearty support.  Alderman Gilker followed the chairman  of? tjhe finance committee and briefly  announced that he would not again be a  candidate. As intimated by Alderman  Teetzal he said that he had decided upon  this course for purely business reasons,  He htul beeivvt��meiliber of the two municipal comic;!;? to which the people of  Nelson had entrusted the management of  the city's affairs, and while he appreciated  the honor which had been conferred upon  him, lie would hot seek their snfferages  for another term. With such a representative meeting there would be no difficulty  in securing three nominees who would be  a credit to the ward and to the city. The  nominees of the meeting would receive his  support. ,,  Alderman Malone said that he did not  come before the meeting as an aspirant  for a nomination. The object of the meeting was that the electors should get together artd'select those men whom they  thought would best serve the city's interests, . He did not wish to impose any restrictions upon the choice of the electors  present. He did not desire to be a candidate unless it was the wish of the meeting  'that he should be. There were a great  many men resident in the EastWard who  could serve ihe city on the council board,  and it was his wish that the meeting in  making its selection should have an entirely free hand.  Alderman Hillyer voiced the sentiment  of alderman Malone.

With respect to the  prospects foiv the next council he >vas  pleased to know that the East Ward  would return two of the old members,  and as new timber a man whose ability  and integrity had never been questioned.  While he regretted that Aldermen Teet/.el  and Gilker had declined a nomination  from the meeting he was pleased that So  good a substitute had beeu chosen in  Thomas M. Ward. He desired to congratulate the uew member as there cotdd  not be any question biit that the nomination Of so influential a meeting was equal  to election.  Alderman Malone made a brief speech  thanking the electors for their nomination. He had endeavored during the  whole of the tiiiie that he had served the  electors of the city to discharge the duties  which fell to him to the best of bis ability,  and he regarded the nomination which he  had just received at the hands of the  electors of the East Ward, as a most satisfactory endorsation of his stewardship.

Toronto, Jan. 0.���At the Monument  Nationale meeting held in Montreal on  Tuesday evening, Hon. Mr. Fielding, the  minister of finance, in the course of a  'brief speech, announced that the accounts  "for the year had just been closed, and he  was glad to be able to announce a surplus  even greater than recently announced,  namely, $1,500,000. The expenditure for  the fiscal year, closing June 80th last, and  chargeable to consolidated account, was  $88,8:32,525,70. For the first time in the  history of Canada the revenue had passed  that figure, having reached the sum of  $40,555,23S.02 for the fiscal year named  and he could officially announce the surplus as $1,722,712.33.  w.<ji   be"*" takerf  j Clarke, "the many-milhonaiie mine owner,  j coffee planter and coffee growei, is nn-  ' doubtedly in the lead ana  a  remarkable  feature ot the contest is that the opposi  tion  has not even yet centered upon a  candidate.  Marcus Daly, who hates Clarke fervidly  and who has doubtless declared ,that lie  will never be senator, -was originally presumed to be a conditional candidate, but  die will not have votes enough, it now  transpnes, to force the election of either  himself or a direct representative, and his  forces are now said to be casting about  for a caudidate who can muster enough  strength ot his own to beat Clark. That  candidate has not yet been hit upon, although many believe Clarke has not a-  majority ot the votes himself. Mr. Daly  was in the east recently and was not expected to return until January 15, but he  came west by special train two days ago  and it is now siad that he will be here in  person in a few days.  ���His coming will be more than ordinarily  significant, because after the capital fight,  in which Daly earnestly sought tp hiiVe  the.capltal renibyed from Helena, tb his  own, town pi? AnSconda, and after, during  a celebration of.theHelena victory, Daly  waS carried in effigy in a coffin by some  irresponsible ratifiers, Daly vowed that  be would never set foot in Helena again.  The aiihounceinent that lie is coming is  taken to mean that Clarke is this year a  nioi'e formidable candidate than he has  ever been before.

Toronto, Jan. 7.���A special from London  gives an outline of ah interview had with  Erastus Wyman, the well known annexationist and commercial unionist of former  days. Wyman says that he now considers  the annexation of Canada to  the United  States itnpossible and commercial union  as highly improbable^owing to the close  trade relations existing between the Dominion and Great Britain.     In  this connection   lie   points    out   that    Canada's  foreign trade is one-seventh of the United  States, whereas the population ot Canada  is but one-fourteenth.   He further points  out that the coal of Nova Scotia is necessary for the  manufacturers of the New  England states and that the coal of-British  Columbia is required by the Pacific states,  and that sooner or later the United States  will be obliged-to make trade conditions  with Canada.  ^WBEW����HfflDlfifflE^C0^"J**l*ir,i^fcia%!*''i'1"',O!*-  Fop  the  New  Year, don't  overlook  the  advantages which  attend  the   purchasing*  of your  groceries  at  a  first-class  establishment.  or the coming year  Will be to keep everything pertaining to the grocery business and  give our patrons the advantage of close prices in the best markets.  ; The  Aberdeen  Block  jBalk'eib^jT'^et^fNelson,   B.C.  * v 'i;��i '. if, .'���;.'".{'  Brisay & Co.  -/i"i  - -        w.     *:,     .^.   ���   ?��''*"*j*       J*  rapisKrf ���." m&fti$$ffik  Family 0rtifet*3 % Spedigtlty * And?
