For  the  Purpose  of Chocking up  Some  the Reckless Consumers of City  Water and Electric Power.  of  MET AND PASSED RESOLUTIONS  PLEDGING   MOR.A-L   SUPPORT.  Yesterday afternoon, after ' the city  council had passed the resolution asking  the manager of the Bank of Montreal to  place to the credit of the city the proceeds of the electric light debentures and  honor the cheek issued by the corporation  in payment for the electric light company's plant and franchise, the .council  appointed aldermen Fletcher, Thomson  and Kirkpatrick a committee to report to  the council as to the best method of  settling the claim of the owners of Addition "A" wilh respect to the land occupied by the electric light claim and that  subject to overflow.  The question of procuring the necessary  lumber for the completion of the electric  light flume was then taken up. The city  engineer explained that the Nelson plaining mill had supplied all the lumber ordered with the exception of some of the  two-inch plank. He thought there should  also be at lease 2000 feet for repairs. The  mayor was authorized to purchase the  material from the Salmo mill.  Alderman Fletcher brought up the  question of the Ward street culvert. The  council had decided to call for tenders for  the work but the city engineer had since  explained that owing to the nature of the  work it could be performed to better advantage by day labor. Accordingly  alderman Beer moved that the resolution  of the council calling for tenders for the  work be rescinded and that it be performed by day labor.  The   matter of the evasions  of water  rates was then taken up.   It having been  discovered  that several consumers were  not paying the full rates for water privileges, a resolution was passed instructing  the   water  commissioner   to inspect, all  water pipes, etc., in the city and report to  the council the number of consumers, the  service received and the amount paid by  each."  This was moved by alderman Beer,  seconded-by alderman Hillyer.  = Another,resolution was also moved, authorizing  the   mayor   to    purchase  six  hydrants, eight 4-inch valves, three 6-inch '  valves, six water meters and one electric  light meter!" .This ..was., -moved' by,alderman Beer, seconded by alderman Kirkpatrick.   With   respect "to .the purchase  of the"electric light and water meters it is  understood that the council   will. insist  upon the breweries and other large consumers  of' water    taking  their* supply  through a meter, and that the large hotels  willalso be required to take their electric  light service through meters.   There is a  needless waste   of electricity and water-  on the part of eonsumers,.and the  policy  of the council is to make the consumers  pay  for what they get and thus  teach  them economy.

Is' Receiving all the Rossland Ore Save That  of the Le Roi Company.  W. H. Aldridge, superintendent of the  Trail smelter, is in Nelson for the purpose  of conferring with the offi.ials of the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company.  When seen today by a TiMi-UNE repre-  sen ta ti ve,_M r. A.l"dr id ge_d eel in ed_ to_d iscuss_  the smelting situation, stating that he did  not care to be mixed up in the discussion  of a question which to him was assuming  a political aspect. His business is to manage the Trail smelter and he will  leave the question of freight and treatment rates to the officials of the company.  With regard to the Trail smelter he  stated that extensive improvements are ���  being made, in the plant, and he expected  that smelting operations will be resumed  in a short time. The entire output of the  Rossland mine.*, with the exception of the  Le Roi, goes to Trail and is being crushed  and roasted, so that when the smelter  starts there will be a sufficient quantity  on hand, to keep it running full blast for  a considerable time. He anticipates that  before six tnOnths from date the mines of  Rossland will be shipping from (iOO to 700  tons per day to the Trail smelter, and  that the number of shipping mines will be  largely increased.  The Waverley Mine.  The manager of the Waverley mine in  his report upon the Waverley says that  during the fortnight previous to the  making of the report the west drift on  No. 2 vein, 250-foot level, advanced 20  feet, breast in decomposed lime, containing small bunches or nodules of galena  ore, a sample of which gave an assay  value of ��10 0s. lOd. per ton, thereby  fulfilling expectations re location of  ore chute as expressed in a previous report. On the 350-foot level crosscutting  northerly of the footwall is in progress,  and an advance of 19 feet has been made;  the breast is in lime and ealcite, and a  few feet further we may expect to be in  the same mineralized zone as found on  the 250-foot level, provided the same extends downward to this point.  Two Murderers Hanged,  St.   Seholastique,  Quebec,   March 10.���  Sam   Parslow  and   Cordelia Viau   were  hanged here this morning,    The drop fell  at 8.05.  At a meeting of the south Kootenay  Board of Trade held-last evening, the  difficulty which has cropped up between  .G. W. McDowell and the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company over the erection of a  sampling works .in Nelson was discussed,  which resulted in the board pledging its  moral support to the promoter *of the  sampling works aud. appointed, a special  committee to assist him iu his negotiations with the officials of the railway  company with a view to securing a desirable siter  Among those present at the meeting,  which was rather hastily called, were: A.  H. Buchanan, J. A. Kirkpatrick, Charles  Hillyer, G. Frank Beer, Frank Fletcher,  F. -W. Swannell, John A. Turner, W. A.  Macdonald,.A- E. Hodgins, Grange V.  Holt, A. R. Sherwood, George Kydd, E. A,  Crease, A. H. Kelly, Thomas Madden and  Theo Madson.  Frank   Fletcher   was appointed' chairman, and when the meeting was called to  order the secretary stated that the special  meeting had been called at the request'of  five members of the council,   namely : M.  De-Brisay,   W.   A.   Macdonald,   F.    W.  Swannell, Thomas Procter and John A.  Turner^ The secretary further explained  that the object for which   the meeting  had  been called  was set out in a letter  which had been received from G. W. McDowell, in which he asked the moral support of the board in his efforts to secure  from the-railway companies running into  Nelson reasonable freight rates, convenient switching facilities and Ithe right to  purchase-the land necessary for a site for  a  sampling   works   which   he  purposed  erecting in the city.   Also that the board  should appoint a committee to assist him  ih'his negotiations with'the officials of  the railway companies to secure the same.  '.G. Frank Beer explained'that the sampling, works matter had  been before the  city council and that the city council had  appointed a committee to wait upon H. E.  Bfe'asley of.the Canadian Pacific Railway  CoDipany to see what could be done in the  matter. ���-The committee had ascertained  Xpap it- was;, the, w.ish of the citizens of  Nelson that the sampling works should  be       established       in -    Nelson,      and  the    only   difficulty    appeared    to    be  that    no   assurance   could    be    secured  from    Mr.    Beasley    that   -the  desired  site could be obtained.   It was understood  that the general   superintendent   ot the  road���R. Marpole���would" be in the .city  tomorrow, and he thought  it   would be  well for the board to take the1 matter up  and see if the present difficulty-between  the railway company and the sampling  works promoter could not be satisfactorily arranged. *  '   W. A. Macdonald offered a resolution to  the effect that as  in  the opinion' of the  board the proposed sampling works would  be of benefit to Nelson and the Kooteiiay  district, the city,council should prepare a  bylaw exempting such  work* from  taxation and submit" the same to   the taxpayers,  and   that the railways running  into Nelson should assist such enterprise  by,granting fair freight rates, convenient  switching facilities aud  selling the land  necessary for the site of such works at a  _fair,price. Mr. Macdonald explained that  the resolution did not carry the board out  of its proper sphere. It was the duty of  the board to do all that it could to advance  the commercial prosperity of the city.  The promoter of the sampling works was  most anxious to come to the city and risk  his money in a commercial enterprise, and  his chief desire was that he should be  assisted in his efforts to secure a site  -which would enable him to carry on his  business satisfactorily. In view of the  reasonableness of the request and the  manifest advantage which it would bo to  the city he said that he could not see how  anyone could have the hardihood to  oppose ic. ^  A. II. Buchanan said that he did not see  why the board should ask the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company to do anything.  As he understood the motion thfe promoter Of the sampling works desired- a  strip of land from the railway company's  right of way at the eastern boundary, of  the city so that half of the works would  be on the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's right Of way and the other half on  that of the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway Company. ��� He thought the desired  object could be attained if the promoter  built his sampling works up to the eastern  boundary of the Canadian Pacific Riil-  w'ay Company's right of way.  Charles Hillyer agreed to this to a certain extent. He thought that Mr.  Beasley had stated the company's case  fairly. He understood that the railway  company's main line had not yet been  finally fixed and that for this reason the  company could not comply with Mr. McDowell's request for the site desired. He  agreed that the works would be of great  advantage* to Nelson but he did not like  the latter part of the resolution which appeared to be an effort to force the hand  of the railway company. He said that he  had seen the plans of the buildings which  the sampling works company proposed to  erect and they would cost from $12,000 to  $14,000.  Grange V. Holt directed the attention  of the members to the fact that the resolution as it was framed was merely an expression of opinion on the part of the  board.   If the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company should show any good grounds  why it was impossible to i_rrant i Iih concessions asked for, it would be a different  matter. There certainly could be no  harm iu recommendinur the matter to tin*  consideration of the officials of the com-  pa n y.  A. H. Buchanan expressed himself as in  favor of deferring action until the next  regular meeting of the board, but this  suggestion was opposed by Messrs. Macdonald and Beer, and on a vote being  taken the resolution, which was seconded  by Mr. Beer, was put and carried.  Ou motion of John A. Turner, seconded  by John A. Kirkpatrick, a committee  composed of G. Frank Beer, A. II. Kelly  and George Kydd was appointed for the  purpose of carrying out the object of the  resolution.    ~~_   KASLO   NEWS   IN   BRIEF.  SPECIFIC AND DIRECT CHARGES  WHICH   SHOULD   BE   MET.  The  Directors  of the  Kootsnay Lake  eral Hospital Should Investigate  Their Truth or Falsity.  Gen-  Kaslo, March 9.���John Emdal, A. W.  Johnson and N. T. Johnson of Kaslo have  sold to George W. Bedell of Toronto their  mineral claims Frontenac, Morning Star  No. 2 and Sunrise, situated in Jackson  Basin in a northerly direction from the  Northern Belle. The consideration is  nominal in the deed, but it is said outside  to have been $1500.  George W. Herren has transferred to  Adam Goettge for $500 an undivided one-  half interest in the mineral claim Big  Four on the south fork of Tarn o'. Shanter  creek, six miles from Kootenay lake.  C. H. Cameron transfers to C. D. Blackwood of Sandon a one-third share of the  Pa=amalong mineral claim located ou Bear  creek, a tributary of the" Upper Duncan.  The collector of votes for the Slocan  riding gives notice that he will hold court  for the revision of the voters list on the  first day of May-in the government office  in this city. Tlie list certainly needs a  good deal of supervision.  Alexander Lucas will leave for the  Coast cities on Sunday morning in connection with his duties as organizer of  the Liberal-Conservative party for British Columbia.  The fire and light committee of the city  council, having secured from the Kootenay Electric Company a modification , of  the terms upon which it would furnish  lights for the city hall, the intention of  introducing a bylaw to amend the electric  light bylaw has been abandoued. Under  ' the new conditions the electric compa,ny  -agrees to furnish one light of 38 candle  oower, four of 16 candle power,-and' two  of 8 candle power to burn all night, and  one.of 10 candle power and one of 8 candle"  power,' to burn until midnight"for the,  sum of $11.25. It alsoagrees tp furnish-13*  .occasional-lights'," ranging, from"S' to 32  ���candle"power, fpr $3.00 per month", from  which there is to be a deduction of 15 per  cent for prompt payment.  k The city council, at it^s meeting on Wednesday evening, t voted to purchase increased supplies for 'the fire- department  amounting to" $15.61. Among the "new  materials there are included 850 feet of  Red Cross hose, C50 feet of Maltese Cross  hose, and a fire bell, to "cost $311 f.o.b. at  Vancouver.' A nevv hose reel is also5 included. *  The council also voted to secure a, temporary loan of $'1000 from tho, Bank of  J3ritish North America, provided it can  be obtained upon reasonable terms The  loan is to be repaid during the year,  whentaxes comeiu.  Kaslo has no formally  elected  acting"  mayor,  but at the   last meeting of the  council, alderman Kane was called to the  chair during the temporary absence of  his worship, "mayor Hartin.  It is said that at an early day a fire  limit bylaw will be brought before the  -council���fixing���the���boundaries--witbin  which no wooden structure may be  erected. These are the six blocks limited  by Third, Water and Fifth streets and B  avenue.  Owing to the want of means for giving  a general alarm several of the fire brigade  and very many citizens were not apprised  of the fire on Tuesday morning until they  came down town. To obviate this difficulty chief Fletcher of the brigade and  some of the aldermen have been examing  the bell of the Presbyterian church and it  will probably be used to sound a fire  alarm in case of necessity until the arrival  of the fire bell which has been ordered.  This will be placed" in the tower pf the  new city hajl.  Snow Slides have again interrupted  traffic On the line Of the Kaslo & Slocan  railway. The train due to arrive in Kaslo  on Tuesday afternoon did not reach its  destination until Weduesday afternoon.  Shortly after its arrival a train was Sent  out to Sandon and returned the Same  evening.  Robert Irving, general manager for the  Kootenay Railway & Navigation Company, left for Spokakeon Thursday morning, for a brief business trip.  The work Ofrepairing and refitting the  steamer Alberta is about completed and  it is expected that she will be launched  from the ways at the beginning of next  week.   Illinois Town Threatened With Destruction.  Shawneetown, Illinois, March 4.���This  city is threatened with a river flood similar to that which almost swept the town  away a year ago. The residents are moving out as rapidly as possible, and all live  stock has been removed. The levee is  thought to be weak in some places, and a  break is liable to occur at any time. Last  April the levee broke without warning,  when twenty-five people were drowned  and many residences and business houses  were destroyed.  The Senator's Water Rates.  Ottawa, March 10.���Senator Cleraow  was seized on today foe $1400 water rates.  To the"TSditor of The Tribune: As there  has been a number of statements in local  papers lately in regard to the management of the Kootenay Like general hospital, I would like you to afford me space  to state a few facts in regard to the same.,  I was employed 'as steward of that institution for over seven months, so lean xpenk  from experience.  First.   About the provision's, etc., sup- .  plied to the hospital.   They were all supplied, by  the  directors.       The  grocery -  account was given to one director having '  a store one mouth and another one  next  month, aud so on.   -O.iediyl telephoned  to one of the visiting directors to inquire  if Farley & Simpson were to have the order to supply the  hospital   with goods -  that month, tho prompt reply  was "No,  he (Farley) is not a director  now."   That  alone is sufficient to show how  they kept  the orders to themselves. The only article ,  not-constantly "supplied   by ihe directors ���  was cord wood.   This order Was-given to  any one who could supply us* at the time.  The director supplying the groceries for .  the month would   not  on   any   account  send a bill  with the goods, so that they  could be checked when we received them *  aiid with   their   bill at the   end   of  the  month.   I would go and ask  for them to   '  be sent, but he would not do so, and I  could not get the other,di rectors to make  him, for if  they  did,   they   themselves  would  have to do the same when their  harvest time came.   Seeing that the grocery bill  was sometimes as high.sas $100  per month; a tally on the separate consignments   would   have been in   the interest of the hospital.   At the end of ekuli.V-i  month we received au account from thedi-  rector supplying the hospital with goods -  for that month, and   these accounts,are  "O. K'd" by the matron and forwarded to  the   monthly  meeting.*   Considering- the  matron   has no tally whatever  of what  has   been delivered,  she   cannot with   a  clear conscience certify that they are cor-,  rect.  The above will show that it is difficult'  to find an institution that is more  benefi- -,  cial to-the directors than the Kootenay  Lake general hospital.   The onls' condu--  siou to be drawn is,.that the directors of���  tho   hospital.get   accounts ' against   it,  and then discuss them at their mouthly  meeting and draw the amounts. '  Second. About thenursiugdepartment.  This subject is one.that cannot be dwelt  upon in detail, but most people have some  idea of what is required to be done in a  sick room. Although I wasdubed steward,  my work included every couceivable  thing-connected with the nursing In an  .hospital. When I was first employed,"  there was only a matron and uightnurse. '  Considering we had seventeen patients  constantly, ninth-tenths of them typhoid"  fever patients, we were kept pretty busy .  all day, in tact the- work was such that  the matron left because she had not sufficient help. - Then one of the directors got  a relation ih as matron. . He did not let  this relation work long-without getting  her an assistant. The assistant is also a  relation of a director. - The more  assistance the hospital directors  sent, -the   work I had to do was not in   "  _the slightest decreased.  ^ ^   They did' none of   the  work  which a  nurse is supposed  to do.   If a person ia -  afraid to perforin   the  work   which they '  contract to do,- r.hey should  not expect  another employee to do it for them".   "  Anyone who knows anything about  the treatment of typhoid fever, knows  that the diet of a patient must not be  tampered with and the quantity ordered  by the doctor must-be strictly measured  out. A patient after being treated 105  days for typhoid fever was discharged,  returning shortly with la grippe. He  died within three days of perforation of  tho bowelsv This patient received when  having fever three times the amount of ��  nourishment ordered by the doctor.  If a patient has any friends in town, or  is a person that pretends to be religious;,  he cab'depend upon plenty of attention  at the hospital; but woo to <he pooi1 fellow that happens to be friendless, or tliaVfc  is not endowed with good JOOks.  They cannot expect to receive more  than What is absolutely necessary  to preserve life; If a frieridless  patient dies he is removed to an  outhouse, which is not fit for a dog  to lie in ; but if he had friends, I was  made to ba,ndftge him up, for fear they  should talk, but on no account would the  nurses touch him. On one occasion a  corpse was left for hours in a bed. This  caused much annoyance to other patients  in the same ward. He was left because  the night nurse could not remove him  alone, and the others would nOt  assist. This may seem a trifling matter  to some, but it is not a very cheerful thing  to have a corpse next you, when you are  stricken down with the same disease that  has killed him.  People may ask why I did tiot make. ,��  these statements before. In the first ;  place, with regards to the goods supplied,;  if I had said a word, 1 would have been  "fired" before I was many hours older;  and in the second place, people with no  friends in a country like this nave to take  what work they can get.  I am willing, if necessary, to attend the  meeting of directors to be held ou the 14'h  instant, and reiterate the above statements. Alan F.

At the next regular' meeting of the  South Kootenay Board of Trade, W. A.  Macdonald will make an attempt to place  the members of the board on record upon  the question of the advisability of having  the duties increased upon lead and lead  products imported into Canada, with a-  view to encouraging the smelting and  mining industry of the Dominion. If he  succeeds in getting the resolution on  the order paper for the next meeting, Mr.  Macdonald will endeavor to show that  the people of the East owe this measure  of protection to the people of British Columbia, for the reason that as matters  stand at present the people of this Province are paying for the protection accorded to the farmers and manufacturers  of the East, and receive no protection for  'themselves on their chief: industry in  relurm       ,'''-':  .

He  has" alreiady  distinguished himself,  knd  the Liberals are in power today because  Mr. Martin showed them how to take advantage of the situation whi&h the Manitoba school question created.   But their  gratitude was not equal to their debt to  'Joe,* and Hon. Mr. Sifton got what should  have come to him.   Some of the legislation  which he carried through   the  late  session in British Columbia is on new and  progressive lines, and will meet with the  support of Canadian people in every pro-  province.     Still    more   luck   seems    to  be     in      store      for    'Joe,'    and     his  brother,    now    resident   in   Winnipeg,  is   mentioned as Liberal  candidate  for  that city.   How the Liberals at Ottawa  will take this we do not know, but the attorney-general of British Columbia has a  long  memory  and   extensive   resources,  and he may be determined on an extensive game ot 'evening up.'

The Century has published several articles on the Heroes of Peace,  and one of  the best of the series appears in the March  number   of   the   magazine.   It is   called.  "Heroes of the Railway Service," and consists   of  notes   from   the   experience  bf  Charles De LanoHiue.   The writer is a  'graduate of-West Point, who, after serving four years as an  officer,  voluntarily  resigns his commission in" the army to become a freight   brakeman.   He   worked  six years as bra Ice man and two years as a  yard-master, all of the  time in constant  "�����_..taut .with.the men and tlie dangers he  describes.    Iu the late war he was a  major iu the First District of Columbia volunteer infantry.   Here is one of the good  stories he tells :  Not long ago a freight conductor started   on  a   night   run   after   drawing   his  month's wages from the pay car.   He had  with him his young son, a lad  of twelve,  and when well under way they began to  cook supper oh  the caboose  stove.   The  rear brakeman on   watch in  the cupola,  observed that the engine seemed to have  unusual difficulty in pulling the train. He  did not connect this fact with  the presence of several hoboes on the top of the  cars, who, unknown to him, were setting  brakes and stalling the train..

In the ye&r that Charles W. Biiot became president of Harvard college, Dr.  James Walker retired from servicie of all  kinds, and was present, sa#s the JBostou  Christian ll-gister, on tlie platform at  the alumni dinner lor the last tithe. lie  was then old and full of honoi's. Every--  body "realized the pa.thosof the situation,  although but little open expression was  given to the feeling of respect which filled  every mind.  As one of the contrasts with the present eonditidn of the university, we may_  mention, in passing, that the dinner of  the alumni was given in IlarVard hall.  Towards the close of the ai'ternodUj when  more than half.of tlie audience had left  to catch trains, a young speaker was  called upon. Joseph H. Choate was then  in the prime Of his youth and manly  beauty. He began his speech pleasantly  indeed, and with a charining grace, but  with no obvious intention. He mentioned  the pictures of five ex-presidents of Harvard college, and began to speak about  the oldest of them, Joseph Quiucy. He  paid an elegant tribute to him, but without excitiug any extraordinary interest  among his hearers. He then passed to  Jared Sparks, and spoke of him and his  work, while still his audience looked a  little puzzled and wondered what he was  driving at. Then he took up Edward  Everett, and his purpose began to dawn;  and furtive glances were directed toward  Dr. Walker, who was giving respectful  attention.  But when Choate mentioned president  Felton, all knew what was coming, and a  deep silence fell upon them as they listened to the eloexuent tribute which this,  youthful scholar rendered to the memory  and the labors of this beloved professor  and president. AU .then knew the meaning of this far-away beginning, and  recognized the skillful way in which the  orator had piled tribute upon tribute in  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  order that he might finally effect a towering monument in honor of the last survivor of this distinguished group. All  had died excepting Dr. Walker, who was  .sitting before them.  Dr. Walker had by this timer-aught the  meaning of these reminiscences, which,  beginning with the airy and jocular  graces of an after-dinner speech, had  deepened into the full stream of au eloquent oration. He bowed his head, profoundly moved by the words of tlie orator  and by the atmosphere of sympathy  which filled the place. Concluding his  tribute*- to Felton Choate tinned to Dr.  Walker, and with inimitable grace and  the expression of the most profound reverence in his carriage and voice,.he began :  "And you, sir," pouring out such a tribute of effectionate praise as under such  circumstances probably no youthful  scholar ever had the opportunity to ren-  to ah honored and beloved teacher.  o ���          The Metal Market.

To Look After the British Columbia Mineral Exhibit.  A contest has developed in Nelson between Otto Martin Rosendale and Edward  Custer Arthur for the job of looking after  the mineral exhibit of British Columbia  at the Paris exposition. Both of the rival  aspirants have communications before  the South Kootenay Board of Trade, asking for the endorsation of the board of  their application for the position. The  application of Rosendale sets out that he  can make a mining talk in all the dead as  well as the living languages, and the  worth of this .iccompli.-h.nent is emphasized in a letter from 11. lied ley of i he  Hall Mines smelter, in which he vouches  for the statement that Rosendale has a  wonderful memory. There isalsoalengt liy  petition in which a great many of the  prominent citizens of Nelson attest that  iu their opinion Rosendale is the manfor  the job. Dr. Arthur's candidature is regarded by many as a joke. With the  doctor, however, it is no joke; he is said  ���to be anxious to go to Paris. The board  of trade will deal with the rival claimants  at its next regular meeting.  The Company Must Pay the Wages.  The supreme court at Victoria yesterday delivered judgment in the appeal  ease of Holden et al vs. the Bright Prospects Mining Company, dismissing the  appeal. The case was tried in Nelson on  December 22nd, 1S98, and on January Gth  judge Forin delivered his decision, holding that the Mechanics' Lien Act applied  to mines and miners. From this, decision  the defendants appealed to the full court,  with the result that judge Forin's judgment in the case is sustained. The l'esult  of the decision is that the Bright Prospects Mining Company will have to pay  the unsettled accounts for wages incurred  by A. W. Wright, who had a contract for  driving a tunnel on the company's property, and left Nelson without paying  the wages of the men employed.  McDowell Will. Know Tomorrow.  General superintendent Marpole, superintendent Beasley and G. W. McDowell  made a trip this morning to the site desired by the latter as a sampling works,  with the result that the two superintendents have hung the matter up tillgener-  al-manager Whyte reaches the city tomorrow. The members of the committee  of the board of trade who were appointed  to assist Mr. McDowell in his efforts to  secure the site are of the opinion that a  favorable reply will be received from the  railway officials tomorrow.  .

Several large parties of Vancouverites  are making arrangements to leave for the  north within a few days. Ono of these  will be headed by ex-alderman Coupland  of that city, who was in the. north some  time last year. He secured some good  claims on several of the Atlin creeks and  expects this year to do a good business  wilh them. There will be nearly 40 local  people with him, it is reported, when he  leaves���probably next week���and most of  these are well-known young men, who  will seek their fortunes in the now frosty  north. Having had experience, Mr.  Coupland will be in a position to  render valuable asssistance to the  young men who are goiug in with him.  Several days ago, ex-aldeiman H. P.  Shaw sent north a party to commence  work on the discovery ciaims at Dixon  creek. These have been secured by Mr.  Shaw, along with several other citizens  and they promise to be among those  which will turn out well this year. On  the next trip of the Cutch, Mr. Shaw will  go north with a party of men and they  will also go to work principally on the six  claims that form the gioup owned by the  Vadcouver people ou Dixon. Mr. Shaw  intends to spend most of the season in the  north.  ���  .'  .  s of the memorandum and articles bt association of the company may be in-  'sp^ected .at thisoffice of tho company's solicitors.
