Ctty Council Proceedings.
The members of tire city council struck
a generous gait lit last evening's meeting,
nnd gave tire sisters hospital scheme a
leg-np in an i-.Tort to secure a cash bonu«
oi' $0000, and a block of land in Nelson,
from the provincial government. The
recommending of this assistance to (he
sisters hospital scheme, and the considei-
ing of the finance committee's recommendation to increase the tux upon wholesale
houses doing business in the city, was the
chief business transacted at the meeting.
Reports Prom Finance Committee.
The finance committee had two reports
before the council. In the first it recommended that the local brewing companies
—Iteisterer <fe Co. and Gosnell & Co.—be
required to take out" wholesale liquor
licenses, .instead of wholesale traders
licenses. Tire, wholesale traders license
costs $20 per year, and the wholesale
liquor license $100.   This was agreed to.
The next suggestion was that a tax
of $25 every six months be imposed upon
all express companies or loan and investment companies doing business in the
city. This was agreed to but if the agents
of the loan companies object they will not
be called upon to pay the tax.
The third recommendation was that the
tax imposed upon wholesale houses doing
business in the city be increased from $10
for every six months to $25 for~ every six
months.. This requires an amendment to
the trades license by-law and while the
suggestion was not opposed in the report
it will be opposed when the move is made
to amend tire by-law.
The last clause in the first reoort of the
committee reads as follows: "Your committee find that the published statements
of receipts and expenditures for the past
year are incorrect and misleading, and in
order that the books of the city may be
put right and kept in a business-like
manner, they recommended that an audit
be made of the city's book of accounts for
the year ending December 31st, 1898.",
This clause.;was adopted in solemn silence.
The second report set but that the t _-,y
had no power.to grantl any. assistance Jit

pital tees collected by the company from
the men Mr. Campbell said that the expenditures of the company upon hospital
account exceeded the amount received irr
There  was also a letter from John A.
Turner, government agent, in which liein-
timated   that in the case of the burial of
piupers,   if  lire city   authorities   could
show him that tire provincial government
was responsible for the same lie would defray the expenses.
Alderman. Hillyer resented   the inference of Mr. Campbell that the remarks
made by alderman Thomson and himself
were based upon ignorance.   He thought
that if the city was to  be called upon to
bury  miners from  the Silver King  one
after another as it had  in  the past,  the
city should request the provincial authorities to send a health officer to the mine
and make a thorough examination of the
same.   If  the city   was   to   be held  responsible for the  burial of the miners it
should   see that the  place was at  least
The communications were received and
filed and the -city .clerk'was...ordered, to
present the bill for the burial of the two
miners from the Silver King mine, to the
government agent at Nelson. ,
Thecity solicitor will also take the matter up with the provincial government so
that the city may  be spared  the burden
of- burying all   the paupers of   the surrounding district who die in  the Nelson
hospitals. ________
Adolphe LaPointe's Liquor License.
Adoljilro, LnPointe had a communication bnfore the council in which he asked
whether, it,would be wise for him "to.put
in an application for a saloon or hotel
license. He said that he was promised a
license last year and that he had expended $000 ou account of the same and then
didnot get the license.
The clerk was authorized to notify Mr.
LaPointe that there were no vacant licenses at present and thatthe couucil was
not in favor of increasing -he.nurnber.
Health- Report-Referred to Committee.
The report of the medical health  officer
■was referred to; a comuiittee com prised of
alderman Fletcher, Beer, and Kirkpatrick.
It  contains  several suggestions for the
iaiprovement of the saniuiry condition of _
»thejeity,fe .vhi('Ii"th^
pected to .consider.and reporcupon/ to "the-.
be made to vote the solicitors  salary of
$1000 over and above tire cost of litigation.
To Secure an Auditor.
At the tail end of the meeting aldermaiv
Beer moved a resolution authorizing the
mayor- to secure 1 he. services of an auditor
for- the purpo*o of having the books of the
ci'y audited. ■ Ir, was atrreed to without
debate aud'the council then adjourned.

Another communication from Mricdou-
ald&J^blinson stated, that they had proceeded up £6 a (jertain point with the taxation of John Elliot's bill of costs as rendered to the city, when circumstances
ardse which nece-isitated an adjonrntnerrt.
They Considered that the taxation was
only a matter of detail which could be
proceeded with by the city solicitor froju
the point at which they stopped, and they
stated that they would he pleased to turn
the papers over to thecity solicitor. They
were notified'so to do.
Gamble & O'Reilly's Bill.
Gamble & O'lteilly had a communication
before the council, tin which they asked
for the settlement of^an alleged, claim
against the city for $60. The city clerk
explained that the item was a charge for
a report by Mr. Gamble upon the flow of
water in Iiootenay river, prepared in com
nection with the plans for the city seweiv
age system; The clerk further explained
tnat payment of the account had been
refused by the former council because the
report was not what was required. A
second report was promised liy the engineer but it had never been presented.
The matter, was referred to the finance
committee. .
The Hall Mines' Dead.
J. J. Campbell of the Hall Mines had a
communication before the council in
which he took exception to the remarks
made by aldermen Thomson and Hillyer
upon the responsibility of the Hall Mines
in the matter of the burial of miners who
died paupers. He said that the remarks
of aldermen Thomson and Hillyer appeared to be based upon ignorance of the
circumstances.    With respect to the hot-

Sisters' Hospital  Bonus.
Alderman Hillyer mOved a resolution
recommending to the provincial government the granting to the sisterhood of
the Roman Catholic church of the whole
of block 40 in the original townsite and of
$0000 in cash, in return for which the
sisters are to erect a $15,000 hospital in
Nelson, and maintain for one year free of
charge all the pauner patients of Nelson
riding outside of the city of Nelson.
This resolution was seconded by alderman Kirkpatrick and was warmly supported by alderman Fletcher.
Alderman Beer was opposed to the
adoption of the resolution. He thought
that at least the matter should be laid
over for one week in order that some information could be secured with respect
to the Kcotenay Lake General Hospital
Alderman Hillyer pressed for a vote
arid the resolution was adopted, alderman
Beer alone voting in the negative.

. Appropriations for West Kootenay.
Below will be found the appropriations
for the several mining divisions of Wesit
Kootenay for the year' ending June 30r.h,
1900, as well as the several amounts that
go to make up the deficits for the year
ending June 30th, 1899.   It will be seen
that no separate appropriations are made
for the public school teachers, aside froiu
the several small amounts to   make up
deficits   for   this   year.   There   is   also
no     appropriation  for   hospitals;   biiti
instead,y -^ hospitals 0  are     each   ^giveri "
$500 and 50 cents a day for each- patient v

trails, bridges and ■wharves are;: $15,000
for Nelspn riding, $15,000 for Slocan riding,f.'iv
and $15,000for Rossland riding.   .No separate appropriation has been made for a
land .registry office, arid it is not likely
that such an office will be established aay- =

officers are elected. The avowed object of
the amendment is to eliminate the ignorant negro vote. To do this, education,
property and poll tax qualifications are
prescribed. Rut this is made .ineffective
as to white people by the further provision that any person can vote who was
entitled to vote on January 1st, 1867, or
any time prior thereto, or whose ancestors were so entitled to vote.

because of the small appropriations and
of the reductions in salaries   of officials.

Geohgk Ross, K. of R. & S.  ^ _____________���__���__���_������_������������___���________________-_______-____-_:  TUESDAY..  ..FEBRUARY 21, 1899  In making an appropriation to pay a  school teacher at Moyie, in East Kootenay, did the government take into consideration the fact that such an  appropriation would not meet with the  approval of the officials of the Canadian  Pacific? Have these officials not told the  government that Moyie was to be wiped  off the map?  The finance committee of the present  city council recommends that the tax on  vvholesale dealers be increased from $20 a  ye ir to $50 a year. This, if done, will not  work to the benefit of Nelson. The establishment of wholesale houses iu Nelson  should be encouraged, but increasing  their taxes is not the way to do it. But,  then, what better need be expected from  a council, the majority of whom were selected by W. A. Macdonald and J. Roderick Robertson ?  ���';."."���: THE^attorney-generalhas introduced a  bill to amend tlie Municipal Clauses Act.  A number of the amendments are in the  right direction.

A Survlvinff Eye-Wltn��_s Corrects Many Errors of That Outbreak.  New light is thrown upon a memorable  crisis in the history of British India by  tlie volume entitled The Sepoy Mutiny as  Seen by a Subaltern, by Colonel Edward  Vibart. The author was prompted to  write this book, it seems, by his detectiou  of a good many errors in the current accounts of the Sepoy revolt, errors which  he is enabled-to correct as being one of  the few surviving eyewitnesses, of the  stirring, episodes connected with the  Delhi outbreak, and as having personally  taken part in the subsequent campaign of  1S57-S. A valuable appendix to the work  contains an explanation of the causes of  the mutiny by Colonel A. R. D. Mackenzie. We shall begin with a reference to  this supplemental chapter and then pass  to certain incidents which, according to  our author, have been imperfectly  described or misinterpreted.  The fact is recalled by Col. Mackenzie  on page 210 that it was some carabineers  belonging to his:regiment, the Third Bengal Light Cavalry, which started the revolt at Meerut. They set authority at  defiance by refusing to use the cartridges  ���i'suspectedthe grea^efiised^in^lubricatingr  .."sthem^to^have..been icomposed��ofsihogsf  ��"s_arnd".? iiWe are-assured���-.hati,��t__is;.���pretext  \?^as,��pntthe race;of��'it,j���apsurd,.sjince,tfaS".a|;  l:*m-it-er^bfc;fa-t," .Ii'th"-i\cartridg_s."liad"s;beeha  "n^made regrmentallyrandn^all^the *meiu pjBih,  ��?if get Ijf/well.kne^^  ^b_eh%__d��as;a;4ftb  ��,-however,%been, ija^s^d^throughoufe she,  M.qnestionstnetest'^  >���$&shor t tinre��bef ore^"stheltnVi'tinyjsmy^ter^  =ftjou|���eupi3atees,.pr>n^  _" meri"t>;,^Tl_e^_ue1_^  v$_iass$Be_y,_^  " ������l__ngiishjmen"^but^,h^  defistbbd by the Sepoys^bf wiruing*" tb'be?  ��� i n- read i rfess 'f"pry eh rn i hjgsteven ts.��s�� f*���_;, o,.i.:" ����� .-���  .^,The, cpiu"rb.t|ider^  alrK.

We are fpld that*the degrading  pujrislinient was \Vitnessed in sullen si*  lence liy two natjye infanfy regiments,  the j-)leyenth and Twentieth, as well a&  by the Third Light Cttvairy, which was  dismounted oh that occasion. It would  have been madness for them at that time  to have attempted a rescue, for they  would have beenl:swept off the face of  the earth by the guns Of the artillery and  the rifles of Her Majesty's Sixtieth Foot,  not to speak of the swords of the Sixth  Dragoon Guards, all of whom were provided with services-ammunition, and had  been so placed as to have the native regiments at their mercy. For more  than an hour the troops- stood motionless, their nervesat the;highesttension,  while the shackles were being methodically  and slowly hammered on the ankles of  the criminals, each of whom, in turn,  called loudly on his comrades for help,  and reviled in fierce language, now their  colonel, now their officers who composed  the court-martial, and now the government. No response came from the ranks.  The ceremony being finished, the prisoners were taken charge of by the authorities of the jail, and the troops were  marched back to quarters. For upward  bf a day and a half all. was quiet. The  snake of insubordination had been, to all  appearance, killed. A rude disillusion,  however, was in store for the British  officers. On the evening of the next day,  May 10th, 1857, occurred the concerted  rising of the Sepoys, which the local  British commander proved unable to  suppress. The opinion is expressed by  colonel Mackenzie, on page 242, that the  European troops, 1500 strong, were paralyzed by the irresolution oi: their chief.  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  He deems it safe to say that, had Hearsey  or Sidney Cotton occupied Hewitt's place  at Meerut, few of the mutineers would  have succeeded in reaching Delhi, The  shrapnel of the artillery and the swords  of the carabineers would have annihilated  them. It is true that general Hewitt aud  jjeneral Archdale Wilson, late in the evening, moved the British troops over the  open plain of the infantry parade grounds,  and caused a few rounds to. be-tired in the  dark at some belated .stragglers of the  cavalry, but the general in command, instead of detaching the carabineers and a  battery of horse artillery in pursuit of  the flying mutineers, acted on tire advice  of the brigadier-general, and withdrew  the whole force to the European lines* In  our aut hor's judgmetrt,!tro greater mistake  from any point of view was ever committed.

Colonel Vibart was a.voting subaltern  in one of the native infantry regiments  stationed at Delhi when the mutinous  soldiery from Meerut reached that city.  At that time the titular throne of the  Moghuls was occupied 'by the octogenarian, Buhadur Shah. Here, within the  walls of a palace surpassing in grandeur  the Kremlin at Moscow, dwelt the nominal emperor, surrounded by debauched  and unscrupulous courtiers, and accustomed to spend upon his harem the  greater part of the pension of $000,000 per  annum paid to him by the British government. The garrison of the city at that  time comprised the Thirty-eighth, Fifty-  fourth and Seventy-fourth regiments'of  native infantry, together with a battery  of native artillery. On the arrival of the  mutineers from Meerut, a large part of  the garrison, including the whole of the  Fifty-fourth regiment, revolted and killed  many of the British officers. The .other  native regiments eventually took part  with their countrymen, and a massacre  of the Europeans ensued. Tlie author of  tlie present book was a member of the  small party .that escaped and that was ultimately rescued by the British troops  who had remained in* their cantonments  at Meerut.

Some days later I was;  present when two  more princes of the;  royal house  were shot by a platoon of  European soldiers "on   the  sandbank in  front   of the   piiace; their   bodies   were  afterward thrown into the river.   Indeed,:  for several weeks subsequent to the capture of the city, wholesale executions of  mutineers and other rebels were carried  out almost daily."    As for the emperor;  himself our author recounts that he had"  the   curiosity  one  day to pay his late  imperial majesty a visit in the wretched.  little hou*e in which he was confined. "At  the door stood a European seutry,  but I  had no difficulty in gaining admittance,  and there I saw, sitting cross-legged on a  native bedstead, on which he was rocking  himself to and fro, asmall and attenuated  old man, apparently between 80 and 90  years of age, wilh a long,  white beard,:  and almost totally blind.  .He was repeating to himself, in a low but audible murmur, some verses.of the Koran, or it may  be of one of his own poetical compositions  ���for be had aspired to be a poet���and he  certainly looked an object of compassion."  Questioned by a British officer as to the  cause of the dreadful atrocities committed  at Delhi during the mutiny, the old man  replied:   "I don't know; I suppose my  people gave themselves up to the devil."  On January  27th,   185S,  the ex-emperor  was   tried   upon   charges   of   rebellion,  treason and murder by a court-martial of  five British officers, each under the rank!  of   colonel;     Fouud   guilty  upon every  charge, he was transported to Bahgoon,  in British Burmah, where he did not long  survive captivity. :      "    .

"We first saw him descend a rid go  accompanied by three of his sowars (all  on foot) and then disappear in a ravine  which ran along its base, presently a  solitary .figure, whom we at once recognized as Hodson, emerged froni tire nullah  a little lower down and cautiously Crept  on the open grOund beyond it on all four's.  It was exciting to see him crawling along  on his hftnds and knee��, especially when  i. was observed that LndlO.v castlo was  crowded with Sepoys, who, having caught  a ght of him, could be distinctly seen  through a telesco]re craning their necks  and intently watching his movements.  Hxlson had, meanwhile, gained the cover  of a hedge, and going, through this was  lost to view. The rebels were now literally swarming in-the veranda of Ludlow  Castle, and presented such a tempting target that we tried to persuade the artillery  officer in charge of two field guns to let  fly at them with a shell, but he thought  the distance too far. We all began to  think Hodson would get cut off, as he was  a long way in advance of our line of pic-  quets and within only a few hundred  yards of the enemy. After a short interval, however, we saw the entire party retiring, and our excitement came to an  end." Our author testifies that there  were few-bolder men'than Hodson in  camp, aud that there was none more to be  depended on to carry out successfully a  dangerous duty.  After a siege which had lasted three  and a half mouth", Delhi was recaptured,  and by the 20th of September u-as entirely  cleiredof mutineers. Our author chronicles the well-known fact that oir September 21st the aged emperor of Delhi was  captured at Haymayoon's Tomb, a few  miles from the city, by a daring act on  the part of Hodson, aud that on the following day his three sous and grandsons  were seized and shot by the same officer.

As he looks back upon the campaign his  approval of it is not unqualified. "I  think I am.not WrOtvg in saying1 that it  was generally considered that the wholesale escape of the rebels on'this occasion,  when thoy might haVe been so easily circumvented aud destroyed had sir Colin,-  CtlmpbeU so willed it," was the one blot oil  the otherwise masterly tactic'S by which  the captitre of the fortified city of Luck-  now defended by upward of J00,000 men,  of whom it is com pitted nearly 30,000 were  trained Sepoys, besides 7000 cavalry, was  effected." Indeed, competent critics have  averred that had it not been for this error  the campaign a gainst the rebels would  practically have tel'iuintited there and  theu, aiid the further operations of an extended nature, such as had to be conducted iu Oudh and Western Behar for more  than twelve months afterward, would  have beerr avoided.
