'"'  KASLO'S   NEW   CITY    COUNCIL.  The Several ��� Committees Appointed and  Routine Business Transacted.  [ICnslo Prospector, January 21st.]  The members elect of the new city council did not let any grass grow under their  feet before they were full fledged aldermen and members of the board. They  were elected'��������� on . Thursdayanch were  sworn in on. Friday by city clerk  Chipman, J. P. If the city's business  is done as promptly during the  year as the first action, there will be  nothing to complain of under that head.  Monday afternoon quite a large number  of citizens met at the council chamber to  be present at the first meeting. At four  o'clok mayor Hartin took his seat surrounded by all the members'.  After the usual routine of first meetings  the mayor proceeded to form the several  committees, which are as follows, the  first being chairman : ��� ���   <;  Public Works���Alderman Kane, Twiss,  Campbell.

The nomination of Alexander Stewart was afterwards  made unanimous and the ticket of three  was completed.  Turner. Hall and McPhillips will make  the run for the opposition. They held a  meeting last night, but it was not largely  attended. The nominations are set for  January 30th, and the election for Tiiurss  day, February 2nd.  The Curling Bonspiel at Rossland.  The Nelson curlers were greatly pleased  today at the news that the ice in the  Rossland curling rink is in good condition,  and that the bonspiel will take place as  advertised. Three rinks will leave here  tomorrow evening to compete in the  different events, and hope to bring back  some of the prizes. The following are the  personnel of the rinks : G. C. Hodge, T.  Lillie, J. Rae and W. H.. Grant (skip). V.  Lamont, James Lawrence, N. F. MacLeod  and F. W. Peters (skip). A. Currie, judge  Foriu, J. H. Wallace and F. Tamblyn  (skip). Owing to the soft weather, it has  been impossible to play off the district  matches between the Nelson and Rossland  teams and the Kaslo and Sandon teams.  A team from each club will be selected at  the bonspiel to compete for the Tuckett  trophy.  .         Do Not Know Anything.

Parliament Buildings, Victbriaj Jan. 23.���On Saturday after-  attorney-gfeneral Martin met Price Ellison in the lobby of  the house and roasted him, using-language, attributed tohim at a  held the previous evening when Ellison called Martin  carpet bagger importation, from Winnipeg. Today Ellison  brought the matter up in the house on a question of privilege, asking protection of the speaker from such violent language. He  described Martin's language as billingsgate that could not be repeated because ladies were in the gallery. Martin was out of, the  house during Ellison's speech,: but came in at the end. He repeated that he called Ellison a low cur for bringing into political  discussion private matters. He said he told Ellison he was a  bankrupt, and said he wished every member of the house present to  hear what took place. Baker suggested that a committee of. investigation be appointed to inquire into all the circumstances, but  the matter was finally dropped with the understanding that it would  come up again in another form:?

As a result of the opposition coiiveiition  at Victoria on, Friday niglit last, there  was a sensational row on Saturday between attorney-general Martin and Price  Ellison, opposition member lor East Yales  At the convention Ellison described Mar*  tin as a carpetbagger from Manitoba, and  Martin met Ellison in one. of the lobbies  of the parliament building and asked him  if the report of his remarks was correctly  made in the morning paper*  "Y"e$," said Ellison..  "Well, you're a liar," roared Martin.  "Gome over here till you hear we talk  to him,' called the attorney-general to  Kellie of Revelstoke and a small group of  members. Then Martin proceeded to pour  out a volume of words that are usually  marked by blanks in a newspaper.  "Call me a carpetbagger," he yelled.  "Well, I can pay my debts and you can  not."  "You lie," retorted Ellison, who is a  rich rancher and a man considerably over  middle age. Ellison kept his temper,  while Martin left the place calling abusive epithets over his shoulder, It is likely  this will not be the end of the matter.  Greenwood Likely to be the Leader.  S. J. Mighton, the Kootenay representative of George E. Tuckett & Sons, the  Hamilton tobacco manufacturers, returned yesterday from a business trip to  the Boundary Creek section of Yale  district. In his opinion, Greenwood will  be the largest town in that couutry. It  has mining properties all around it, in all  all stages of development, and has every  prospect of having the advantage of a  large payroll. In Camp Phoenix, about  four miles from Greenwood, there is at  present about 140 men employed in tlie  mines.  The New Divisional Point.  Tho new divisional arrangements on the  Canadian Pacific railway come into operation ou February 1st. Donald will then  be discontinued as a divisional point and  Laggan will take its place. Engines will  then be run through the mountains from  Laggan to Revelstoke. At Golden a Y-  switch will be put iu, an engine stationed  and a train crew retained.

The Record Again Broken.  [Cllasgow WCckl J Mail, January 7th.]  Fom the complete returns pf Clyde ship-  bniiding and marine engineering, it \vill  be ebserved that 28(5 steam vessels aiid 51  ^sailing shipsand^barges'withpa^grpss^re-^  gistered tonnage of 407,243 have been put  into the water during 189S, compared with  229 steamers and 99 sailing ships and  barges, giving a gross tonnage of 340,110,  for 1897. This shows an increase of 57  steam, and a decrease of 48 sailing craft,  from the previous year, but an increase  of gross tonnage all Over to the extent of  127,133. The full increase of production,  however, really belongs to JS97, when the  unfortunate strike and lockout in the  marine engineering trade, dislocated the  flow of work and scattered all computations to the wind. Cpuiiug to the horsepower of engines produced���an important  consideration well-nigh lost sight of in  past years, when sailing vessels made up  the bulk of the tonnage built���the table  is startingly significant.' From 372,395 last  year to 511,005 is a big jump, but only in  keeping with the increased tonnage of steam vessels and the complete disappearance of the old sailing  ship. The white-winged craft, like the  old "wooden walls,"-have served their  day aud generation, and served well, but  the age of the triple expansion engine and  the " tramp " has come and cleared them  from the sea. At the present time nearly  all the yards have every available man  working, aud eager to take on more. The  double shift, however, gets through a lot  of labor in the engineering trade, and we  would estimate the number of hands employed j list now, directly and indirectly,  in the great Clyde industry at4S,000, compared wiih 35,000 in 1897, 45,000 in 1S90,  41,000 in 1895, 39,000 in 1894, 32,000 in 1893,  3S,000 in 1892, 43,000 in 1891, 40,000 in 1890,  3S.O0O in 18S9, and 31,000 in 18S8.  Will Build a Warehouse.  The Canadian Pacific has let a contract  for the erection of a stores building at  Nelson. The demand for stores for the  compauy's steamers and railroads centering at Nelson has become so great that it  was decided to locate a supply warehouse  here. Formerly, when supplies were required, it was necessary to send a requisition, through the heads of departments,  to Vancouver, and often great inconvenience was experienced through delay in  arrival. A full supply of castings, repairs,  etc., will be kept iu stock in the Nelson  warehouse, the erection of which is an  idex of the increase in the business of the  company in Southern Kootenay.

The name of Delia McGrenn, who died  a few years ago at Providence, Rhode  Island, will live forever iu the annals of  ingenious inventors; of hiding places.  This lady, who was believed, whilst alive,  to be poverty-stricken and relationless,  really possessed/ American bank-bills,  Bank of England notes and divers railway securities toltlie value of $25,000, but  this interesting find was not made until  the bustle she habitually wore was taken  to pieces and her wealth brought to light.  A hiding place very similar in character  was discovered last April, when an old  lady living in a hovel in the vicinity of  Yarmouth, England, died; but in this  instance the sum discovered was in goid and  notes (value ��400) which was sewn in her  stays. The artfulness pf women was  shown to great advantage some years ago  by an elderly spinster named Bonsor, who  prepared a little surprise for those who  purchased her furniture at her demise by  turning it into a species of lucky bags  while she lived. The three great features  of the sale of her effects were a piano, a  piano-stool, and a "four-post bedstead."  With  regard  to  the  former    we  have  Will Have Three Day's Work.  If the session of the legislative assembly  will end when attorney-general Martin  says it will, the three members to be returned in the City of Victoria, to fill the  vacancies caused by the resignations of  Messrs. Hall, McPhillius and Turner, will  have the privilege of the floor of the  house for just three days. The election is  to be held on February 2nd, and the assembly should adjourn on the 5th, to  make the attorney-general's .statement  good.    Church and State Not Separate.  Rev. IT. S. Akehurst leaves tonight for  Rossland to consult with Rev. II. Irwin  and Hon. T. Mnyne Daly regarding the  division of the Church of England diocese. A private bill was prepared to be  brought before the legislative assembly  to establish the new diocese of Kootenay,  with headquarters at Nelson, but it was  fouud to be too late for the preseut  session.  .   Shipments 140 Tons.  For the week ending last Saturday, 140  tons Pf silver-lead ore were shipped from  the mines at Silverton, on Slocan lake.  The Vancouver group sent 40 tons to the  Trail smelter, and the Wakefield mines 40  tons to the Hall Mines smelter at Nelson  and 00 tons to the Selby works at San  Francisco.  nothing to relate, but the purchasers of  the stool, a Lewishaixi doctor, and of the  " four-poster," bought by a local joiner  for 25s, had a good deal to say, when, embedded in the horse-hair stuffing of the  former, tensovereigns were revealed, whilst  a diligent examination of the bedstead  showed that three of the posts were  hollow and contained ��900-in gold and  bank notes. This skilfully-contrived  receptacle of wealth requires a great  effort to beat it, but, on due consideration,  we think that the palm cannot be withheld from the old dame who kept her  heirs at bay for a little space, .and also  provided them with one or two exceedingly uncomfortable quarters of an hour,  by hiding her fortune, in the^shape of  banknotes, between her own skin and a  porous plaster.  "Gil" Spencer Dead.  W. G. Spencer, better known as "Gil"  Spencer, died at 7 o'clock on Saturday  evening at the Crickmay hospital of typhoid fever. The deceased was a native  of Nova Scotia and came to Nelson seven  years ago, where he'established the first  tinsmithing establishment in the town.'  About a year ago he gave up business to  take charge of the bar on the steamer  Nelson. A few mouths ago he enteied  into partnership with D. Campbell, who  lost his life on the steamer Ainsworth, to  carry on a hotel business at Kuskonook.  The news of his death came as a great  surprise to his friends. The funeral took  place this afternoon 'from/, the Masonic  hall, the arrangements being.under the  auspices of Nelson lodge, A. F. & A. M.,  .No. 23, of which the deceased was a visiting member. About .25 of the brethren  marched in procession to the cemetery,  where the remains were laid to rest with  Masonic honors. The deceased leaves a  wife and family in Nova Scotia.  v   :;     ���;' Who Knows Him?  Postmaster .Gilker received the following letter last week.

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS BY MAIL  Ripe for a Revolution.  London, Jan. 21.���The question whether  a glass of rum and water can suffice to  destroy the third republic in France may  be said to be still pending. Paris has rut  yet begun to laugh at M. de Beaurepaire,  and (his is really a very serious sitrn.  Grog for colonel Picquart at the sittinj.' ''f  the court of cassation and no grog for i lie  generals is the sum and substanr-e of 'lie  accusation made by this windmill >igiui;/>r  in a judge's robes, and the French bf.'-e  of humor has been so completely destroyed by passion that it fails to see a iy-  thing absurd in the indictment.  The situation  is berious enough in all  conscience; it has not been  more so since  the Commune, and the  number of  those  persons who believe that Ihe days of the  republic arc drawing to a close include  some of the most conservative judges of  public   affairs   in   Europe.   There is   no  longer any doubt that  many   powerful  enemies of  the French  government are  plotting its'destructioii.    The  systematic  and   deliberate   maimer   in   which some  fresh   obstacle   to   the progress   tnwiiid  truth and  lighr  is interposed  whenever  the triumph of justice seems imminent is  sufficient proof that a deadly campaign is  being wagud against Fiance.   There will v  be more Do Beauropaires and  Chanoines  as soon as necessary, and the fact that i he  French people are so easily deceived   by  such persons constitutes  the  most hopeless feature of the situation.  The week's developments have been by.  no means confined to the relentless attempt to discredit the Court of Caseation,  thus destroying the last bulwark of the  French Constitution. The reappearanee  of the Napoleonic legend in Pari-; i* in  evidence everywhere: hawkers are selling  lives of Napoleon in the streets a.nd the  demand for photographs of the Bonaparte  family is evident everywhere. Finally,  the production of the play "Vive  l'Empereur" is received with transports -  of rapture. Every point glory'ifying the  Bonapartes is cheered by a crowded house  nightly." The government is afraid to interfere with any of these things for fear  of precipitating a crisis. - -  KNAPP   AND   HIS   BARREL   BOAT.  the'  In the Face   of Failure  He  Still  Declares  Principle a Practical.One.  . t'  F. A. Knapp, the inventor of the Knapp-  -roller-boat, havingmet-'with- disappoint-  -ment in the speed of the-vessel he built at  Torpnto,'rstill believes that' his' invention  is destined to rule the seas, and lie puts  forth some novel theories in support of  his belief. Thej plan of his boat is that of  a barrel with a .smaller barrel suspended >.  on a central axis inside. The engine* are  placed in the suspended barrel, aud are  intended to make the outer shell revolve,  while the inner one remains in one position. The boat built at Toronto is J10  feet long.and 22 feet in diameter and was  expected to make from twenty-five to  thirty miles an hour. She.made six miles '  an hour. The power was applied by putting the engines on circular tracks inside  the outer shell and making' the weighted  inner cylinder tend to climb up the side  of the outer one, like a squirrel in a wheel  cage. This was a mistake of his engineers,  Mr. Knapp declares.  ������I-have always-been-of-theopinion,"-he���  says, "that speed cannot be obtained  from gravity as applied to my boat.  After two trials my engineers now admit  that 1 am right, and that by suspending  the power and applying it to a central  shaft five times b.ettei1 results eau be obtained."  His theory is that with his vessel roliitig  broadside to tlie water she would soon  meet with such a resistance that sli0  would climb to the surface and roll over  it as over a pavement, and would meet  with so. little resistance that tlie speed  would beaiiiiostunliini;ted,nP"ftlat=terhd\y  little power she had. Engineers, he says,  tell him that such a vessel, exposing SP  great a surfaces could never be propelled  against the wind, but he sees the matter  differently.  "\Vith my vessel," he declares* "the resistance of skin friction and the blow" of a  wave, which is much below the centrei  knocking her legs"out from under her, so  to speak, are aids to speed. I turn the  enemy into a, friend and am working With  nature instead of against her. The wind  can no more stop my vessel, weighing  17,000 tobs or more, than it can a railroad  train.  "I am told again by the engineers that  the weight has nothing tp do with it, and  that there is no power in momentum. I  have given up arguing with them as hopeless. It does seem strange to me that  men who are traiued in science should sp  fail to comprehend one of the greatest of  nature's forces, the inertia of motions".  Mr. Knapp proposed to the United  States'government recently that it build  a troopship on his designs. According to  the specifications which he enclosed the  vessel would have beeu 800 feet long, 200  feet in diameter and capable of carrying  30.000 men with their provisions and 30,-  000 tons of cargo.

(Toronto (ilobc, Jsmiary 11th.]  Sir Charles Tapper  is of opinion  that  the reform of the senate on the lines proposed by Sir  Wilfrid  lviurier  would  be  regarded by the imperial parliament as a  very serious matter.    Mis contention is, as  we understand it, that the senate as now  organized is an essential part of the pact  of Confederation, and cannot be altered  without the consent of the contracting  parties.    Sir Charles'  conception of the  rights of the contracting parties to Confederation has evidently changed since he  took the foremost part in dragging Nova  Scotia into the union against the will of  its   people.       This,   however,   does   not  answer his contention.    What he  means,  as the context shows,  is that the senate  gives   the   smaller   provinces    a   larger  relative z'epresentation in the senate than  they have in the commons. In the United  States   this   principle   is   carried so far  that Maine has  the same representation  in the senate as New York.   In  Canada  we have adopted a course  it. id way between representation by population and  the   equal   representation   oi   provinces.  Quebec   has   equal   representation   with  Ontario, although its  population is only  about two-thirds as large.    Ontario and  Quebec have 24 each, Nova  Scotia   and  New Brunswick 10 each, Prince Edward  Island and Manitoba 4 each, British Columbia 3, and the Northwest Territories 2.  It is true,  as Sir Charles says or suggests, that one of the main objects of the  senate was to afford special protection to  the smaller  provinces, whose representatives    in   the   commons    might   otherwise  have   been   swamped .by   superior  numbers.     And   if   the   rights   of   the  smaller    provinces,     or    of     the     provinces      generally,      as    against      the  central authority had  been attacked by  the commons and defended by the senate, .  the friends of the senate would have had  a good   case, and   the smaller provinces  would have had good  reason to  protest  against the destruction of this'''safeguard  of their rights.   But  the fact is that the  senate has never during any period of its  history acted as a defender of provincial  rights or of any province.   On the other  hand, the provinces, aided and sustained  by the  courts, have  proved   themselves  well able,to take care of themselves.

A Roman Catholic priest for nearly  lit) years, he attained high distinction  in the church, was the leader in a  great temperance revival, and was  entrusted by the church authorities  with an important Catholic colonization project in the Mississippi valley.  After his conversion to Protestantism the same qualities of mind  and character made him conspicuous. It  was not .possible for him to keep in the  background. He became even more ardent and zealous as a Protestant than he  had been as a Catholic, and naturally he  incurred the odium of his former co-reli-  giouists. For a score of years aud more  Dr. ���Chiniquy was perhaps regarded by  the Roman Catholics of the United States  aud Canada with more intense dislike  than any other man, for, being a born  tighter, he battled with all the force of  his nature against the church he had left.  Although there can be no doubt about  the genuineness of Dr. Chiniquy's conversion, it may be doubted whether he would  have left the church of his fathers if it  had not been for the fact that, while still  a priest, he had encountered the opposition of his spiritual superior. He rebelled  against ecclesiastical authority in matters  of purely administrative character, and  thus, when he came to review the doctrines of his church, he was in a frame of  mind that made it easy for him to be convinced that those doctrines were wrong.  It is not probable that he was convinced  against his will.  And yet we are told that notwithstanding his fierce iuvectives against the old  church, he retained a tender affection for  it to the last. Even a strong nature such  as his could not entirely free itself from  the habits and influences of fifty years.  Of late years old age had mellowed father  Chiniquy. There was more of charity in  his public utterances and less of invective  than there had been. Time, too, had altered the feelings of Roman Catholics toward 'him; they had come to regard him  as one who, though mistaken, was sincere  and inherently a good man.  The exchange of courtesies between  archbishop Bruchesi and the dying ex-  priest was highly creditable to both ; and  it is pleasant to read that the archbishop  has said that, although Dr. Chiniquy refused to be reconciled with the church*and  died outside her communion, yet he might  still be the object of Divine love and compassion. Thus, at the close of his long  life, the church against which he fought  so bitterly wafts something, like a benediction after his departing spirit. - This is  the essence of true religion, for it is love.  ;I^f^li^^^p^&S^^^i% o��p T "i<-  ��toandrwei*  &Lif2z&��&ze>z?Zi  %.

[Vancouver Province, January 20th.]
Two weary pilgrims from the northern
gold fields, Thomas Henderson of South
Edmonton and Norman Lees of Chilcdtiu
arrived iu the city today. They came
from the north on the steamer Al-ki,
which vessel they left Nanaimo and came
over on the steamer Joan this morning.
Both travellers look considerably the
worse for the northern experience. Lees
refused to tell of his travels, while; Henderson talked freely of a trip of nearly
'3000 miles through the northern wilds.
Thomas Henderson, with a mixed party
of Americans, started from Edmonton
last May over the water route to reported
rich placers at the head waters of the
Liard river. After many exciting experiences the party arrived at a point 400
'miles.up the Liard about the middle of
October last. They.tracked their boat
nearly dOO miles up the river, aud the
only gold they found was on the bars in
the river, which paid from $3 to $4 a day.

Mr. Henderson says that he cauie oitt

river. Since last May he has travelled by
boat and On foot nearly 8000 mil'es;
At Dease lake he met a number of unfortunates who attempted to reach the
Klondike over the Edmonton land route.
They were camping for the winter and
nearly all were in hard luck, as they had
lost most of their outfits. Only a few
Chinamen are working the placers of
Dease river and lake. JNo one at Dease
had heard of the Atliu discoveries. At
Telegraph and Glenora there was, however, great excitement caused by reports
of rich discoveries in Atlin, and many
were starting out for the new diggings.
Mr. Henderson caught the Al-ki at

from the Klondike.
Mr. Lees, who accompanied Mr. Henderson to this city, it is understood, took
cattle over the Ashcroft trail and lost

Just then an old man, lame, with a
crutch, approached the reporter and said:
"Will yott give me a cent for a cup of

"I'll take you there and give you a cup,"
was the answer..
The three descended to the basement*

"That will cost three cents, sir," said
the Old man doubtfully.
With the coffee (a big bOwl of it), three
slices of good brOwn bread was brought.
The plate of oatmeal was big and the milk
looked good.
"How did you come to this ?" asked the
sergeant of the old man who was eating
the oatmeal.
"Whiskey," was the laconic reply.
"Where do you sleep at night ?" proceeded the sergeant.
"Anywhere.   Mostly don't sleep."

The old "man was so lame that he could

the morning. The prices named from 1.5
