 CENTBAL AND NORTHERN KOOTENAY  Have more silver-lead mines and prospects'  than any other mining country  in the world.  %.^-:  SOUTHERN KOOTENAY AND YALE   |  Have  the largest gold-copper mines ever [  discovered, and their output will be       j  millions for years. I.  DAILY   EDITION:  FIRST YEAR���NO. 48  NELSON, B. C, TUESDAY AFTERNOON, FEBRUARY 28,  18!)!).  WEEKLY  EDITION:  SEVENTH YEAR-NO.  U.  WHAT THE ALDERMEN SAID  To Kill Time at the Council Meeting.  There was nothing startling in the proceedings of the city council last evening  saving the notice given by the members  (hemselves that hereafter (he municipal  comedy of errors will be presented fortnightly instead of weekly. There is a  feeling ou the part of some of the members that they are devoting too much  lalk to municipal affairs, and as a check  against such a contingency it has been  decided that the couucil shall meet every  alternate Monday evening at 7.30 o'clock.  ���      o  ,    The City Solicitor's Duties.  There were just two clauses in the report of the linauce committee. The first  recommended the payment of the current  accounts, including $45 to W. P. Dickson  for a report upon the electric light plant  of the city, and the second set out the duties wliich should be performed by the  city solicitor as an offset against his $1000 ,  salary.  In the first place he is to prepare all bylaws and certify that each is correct aud  - iu legal form: he shall attend all meetings  of the council and of committees when requested to do so; he shall advise the  mayor, the chairmen of committees and  all city officials on matters referred to  them, free of cost; in any actions brought  by or against the city, he shall only be  entitled to charge his actual disbursement!.; in all cases where the city is successful he shall be entitled to his taxed  costs against the opposite party, if such  costs are allowed by the courts; he shall  attend to all legal matters arisingbut of  the city assessment; draw all contracts,  deeds or agreements between the city and  any other parties; investigate the title of  any property to be purchased by the city;  and draw any desired amendments to the  Municipal Clauses Act or any other act  which the council desire to amend.  The report was considered satisfactory  and was adopted without debate.  Report on the Opera House.1:;      .

In the  first place the- Bonnington* JFal'I'-S  company would not be satisfied with the  present rates for electric lighting. They  would insist upon raising the rates to  start with. Alderman Fletcher concluded-by saying that he for one would  not entertain the proposition of approaching the Bonnington Falls company.  The report was referred to a committee  composed of aldermen Fletcher, Hillyer  and Kirkpatrick. -_  Goat River Lumber Company.  ���The Goat River Lumber Company had  a communication before the council in  which permission was asked to tender for  the supplying of" any rough lumber or  dimension stuff (that the city may require.   The letter was received and filed.  Sent to the Wrong Shop.  A communication was received from  the clerk of the Dominion department of  public works in which the council was  notified that the communication of the  council with respect to the foreshore  rights had been received, and that the  same was improperly sent to the public  works instead of the department of  marine and fisheries. The reading of the  communication caused considerable chag  rin to the members of the council who  were endeavoring to prevent any speculative holding of the foreshore rights, as  the desire of the council in the matter is  as yet not before the proper authorities.  To "Vaccinate the Indians.  The report of the committee to which  the report of the medical health officer  had been referred was then presented.  The first clause recommended that the  Indian department be communicated with  and urged to take up the vacccination of  the Kootenay Indians so that the danger  of a smallpox epidemic, in which Nelson  would suffer, would be minimized.  The Isolation Hospital.  , The second clause recommended that  suitable plans be prepared for the erection  of an isolation hospital, such building to  be erected somewhere on the park reserve  in the.neighborhood of the present hospital.  Alderman Hillyer objected to the isolation hospital being located anywhere on  the park reserve. He moved that the  recommendation of the park reserve as  the hospital reserve be struck out. This  was seconded by alderman Beer and on  motion the clause was amended.  City to Take Up,. ScavenRer Work.  The third clause in the report dealt  with the manner iu which the scavenger  work throughout thecity was being done.  The members of the committee agreed  with the health officer that the manner in  which the work was being attended to at  pre.eut was a menace to the health of the  city."] The committee recommended that  the city take oyer the scavenger work,  expressing the opinion that under municipal control much better results could be  obtained.  This clause of the report was adopted  and the members of the committee were  discharged. -  McLean's Foreshore Site.  The communication of W. B. McLean &,  Company with respect to the warehousing site which the company desires to secure on the water -front.at'-' the foot of  Josephine? street was again before the  council, coining up in the form of a protest against the resolution of the council  requiring municipal assent .tb.'allVapplica;..''

Alderman Hillyer replied that while  the committee might have done nothing  the Hall Mines was using the water and  paying nothing for it.  The Odds and Ends.  The difficulty between W. P. McEach-  eran and the city engineer over the sewer  in the alleyway in block 27 was referred  to the mayor and the city engineer for  settlement.  The mayor was authorized to lay a temporary sidewalk oii Front Street from the  hospital to the city limits.  On motion of alderman Beer, seconded  by alderman Kirkpatrick, the council decided to meet on alternate Mondays instead of each Monday.  The city assessor was given till April 1st  to complete the assessment roll.-  Hon. J. Fred Hume was voted the thanks  of the council for the amendments which  he secured to the Water Clauses Act as-  requested by the council.  WORKING   MEN'S   CHANCES.  THE GOVERNMENT APPROVED  Dead-nan's Island a Fit and Proper Place For a  Sawmill.  Vancouver, Feb. 28.���One of tho largest  meetings that has ever been held in the  city hall gathered there last night to consider what is now generally known as the  "Deadman's Island Deal." The meeting  opened at 8 o'clock, but the hall, was  crowded at 7, and the last of the audience  had not left the building before the stroke  of midnight. The crowd climbed into the  dressing rooms, the wings were fil'ed up,  and.tlie approaches-were crowded out to  street.   Mr.   Senkler   was chairmau  ing in tho face of No. 4 tunnel is evidence  of the existence of a large ore body. Con-  centrating ore is being steadily sent down  to the mill, which is running smoothly,  four J-horse teams being employed in  hauling ore. Besides the concentrating  ore sent to the mill about two tons of  clean ore is daily sacked at the mine.  BNOLISH   SPORTING   NS2WS.  Too Many Men Seeking Employment in the  Boundary Creek District.  [Greenwood Times, February 25th.]  During the past few weeks there has  been a phenomenal influx of people into  the Boundary Creek district. A great  many are men with money seeking investments. There is always room for people  of this class and splendid opportunities  to increase their capital. Many miners,  however, hearing so much on the outside  about Boundary Creek, decided to come  here. Now while the amount of development work is increasing daily, mining  men must necessarily know that it takes  considerable time before a mine can be  placed upou a footing that will warrant  the employment of a large number of men.  There is great danger that during the  next few months too many men seeking  employment will find there way here. It  would be much better for miners to remain where they can secure employment-'  than to take chances in Boundary Creek  ���for���,theu nexti'ew nionthsvThe.same ad vice,,  ��hold-%oqd i\\atbnYeto  ;iugVmeu&T^  ;trict"can^g^  '"numbei; 6^imem;|��It;i^  ^salast resort ment"cah^g|t3"employment\  in thebpnstructiohpf ;the*-rai  ^luna^ustom  eve).,"."will .tihd-iitfauythifig" bu��t^e*asy��':'jtiv>��i  the:  andchief-of-poliee Stewart took a seat on  the platform.  George R. Maxwell, M. P., was the first  speaker.. He stiougly defended the course  he;, had taken, and said that it if it was  necessary he'would do the same thing  again.. A large number of speakers followed Maxwell, occupying from 10 to 20  minutes each.G  The meeting was quite stormy at times,  but most of. the speakers were given a  fair hearing. At the close of the meeting  the following resolution, proposed by C.  Wood ward, was carried by ��� an overwhelming majority :  "Resolved that this mass meeting of the  citizens of Vancouver heartily approve  of the leasing of Deadman's Island for  manufacturing purposes, and we cordially  commend the action of our member in  supporting the same, and that a copy of  this resolution be forwarded to the minister of niilitia and to sir Wilfrid Laurier."  Iii the meantime the committee appointed,to go to Ottawa by those opposed  to the scheme have got right down to  work, Mr. Cowan, president of the Trades  and Labor Union, left for Ottawa? yesterday to prepare the way for the others,  who will leave in a day or two, after securing certain records regarding the  survey of the park.

Hook and Ladder Truck Shipped.  The Waterpus JUngine Company wrote  to the council informing them that the  hOok and ladder truck ordered by the  city had been shipped to Vancouver and  would bei t'eshiiiped from that ppint to  kelson. The company explained that by  this method a saying of $50 had been  sa^cd to the city iu freight charges.  Thomson Stationery Company's Rates.  A long communication was l'KeeivPd  froii- tlje Thonispi) Scatioijery Cbmpahy,  protesting agilinst the rate of $-1 per  month levied against the company for  water.  The city clerk explained that while Mr.  Ward was collector of water rates he  could never secure any satisfaction from  the company with respect to the payment  of the account. There was a mistake in  the account as originally rendered, the  company nob having beeu credited with  $4, but this amount had since been placed  to their credit.  On motion of alderman Hillyer, the  coitimunicafciou was received and the immediate collection of the account ordered.  Clubs to be Licensed.  Alderman Hillyer gave notice that at  the next meeting of the council he would  move an amendment to the bylaw regulating the number of places at which  liquor could be sold. He explained that  an amendment had been made to the  Municipal Clauses Act by which corporations had power to impose a liquor license  upon all places where liquor was sold,  and accordingly he proposed that a tax  should be collected from all clubs in Nel-'  son.    Hall Mines Pays Nothing.  Alderman Hillyer asked the mayor  what rate the Hall Mines, Limited, was  paying for the use of city water from the  electric light flume.  The city clerk replied that a committee  '"^bo-ft^b'rie'sTno.usa^  l^'tf.'

Kelson the Most Important Court Registry in  the Province.  Mr. Martin of Ito'c.land asked for a return of tlie num-bei' of writs issued during  JSOSat the different registries and sub-  registries of the supreme court of the  province. The attorney-general, iu answering, said that owing to the session  being near to a close it would be impossible to present the return asked for in the  usual way. He, however, had obtained  the number of writs issued during the  eleven months ending November 30th,  1808, the figures being as follows :  Supremo   County  Nelson   Vancouver   Victoria..   1 .o_Hland   Kainloops  ..  New VVcsbiiin'-ter   From the above it will be seen that Nelson is the most important registry office  in the province, and that Rossland and  Nelson combined are as important as  Victoria and Vancouver. Yet when a  supreme court judge hears cases at either  Nelson or Rossland he is in so much of a  hurry that he often decides to hear the  arguments of counsel in Victoria. Instead  of having sittings of the full court at Victoria and Vancouver, sittings should be  held at Victoria and Nelson. If the members from Kootenay would only stand together, Kootenay would not play second  fiddle very long.  Court.  Court.

A crosscut  is also being run, about fifty feet in the  tunnel, to ascertain the width of the ledge,  which at present shows itself to be a good  ten feet wide with no sign of a foot wall  yet. The crosscut is in a solid body of  ore that would concentrate about three  into one and give 300-ounce concentrates.  As it is, it is being hand sorted and a large  amount of it is being sacked ready for  shipment. On the hanging wall is a streak  of ore that is very rich, being alive with  native silvei; in the form of flakes and  wire. Beautiful specimens can be obtained  from this streak. The Noonday ledge,  like most of the mines in this district, lies in the slate formation  and like the Alpha and Wakefield  ledges, has not a very big pitch. The  Comstock mines, have commenced adding  to its force, six new men being put on  this week. Stoping has commenced between tunnels Nos. 2 and 3, and a new  raise is being put through between tunnels Nos. 3 and 4. Development work will  be pushed and tunnels Nos. 3 and 4 will  both be driven ahead.

Neepaiva, Manitoba, Feb; 2$.���Mrs;; 5fat-  thpw Whaiey, a resident of this place,  Commibted suicide this morning by taking  strychnine. 'Dr. McFaddep, tlie coi'O-ier,  was preseint before death took place. The  woman confessed to having herself dpc-  tored the ginger tea which she had taken,  but -he would neither deny npr acknowledge she had Used strychnine as an in-  gt-edient. There can be no do.Ubt  that the woman was at least  temporarily insane, and it is  altogether likely that competent authority \Vould have adjudged herns mentally  unhinged for a considerable time past.  Mrs. Waley returned last Saturday from  a visit to Ontario, and on her arrival  learned that her husband had rented his  farm and gone to the Pacific coast, and  would not return for probably three months  The sad intelligence was telegraphed to  Mr. Waley at Vancouver. No inquest  will be held.  Want Sentences Commuted.  Ottawa, Feb. 28.���J. D. Leduc, M. P.,  aud J. A. C. Eehier, M.

The cases will likely be passed  upon at today's sitting of the cabinet.   *  ONTARIO WILL RAISE REVENUE  From Sourcea That Can Well Stand It.  Toronto, Feb. 28.���The provincial government has decided to divide the bill to  supplement the provincial revenues into  two parts'.   One will be known a9 an ''act  respecting   brewers, distillers and other  licenses," and the second will be an "act  to supplement the provincial revenues."  Treasurer Harcourt stated yesterday that  they would be read a first tiine on Wednesday   of  next week.   The  license  on  brewers   will be a graded .one, and will  come pretty high on breweries, and  be  considerably over $1000 on each of those  located at Toronto.   The tax on distilleries   will   be  even   larger.     The   tax   to  supplement, the  revenues    will   be   on  banks, loan companies, trust companies,  and insurance companies.   These institutions   will  be  taxed according  to their  capital.   The new law will also tax rail  way    companies,    street   railway   companies, navigation companies, telephone  and telegraph companies.   They will be  taxed a mileage rate.   Some incorporated  companies will be taxed, but those companies   whose incorporation   was   really '  optional,   such   as   some   wholesale  dry  goods    companies,   etc.,    will ��� be   taxed  nominally.    The railways enjoying government aid will be taxed  higher than  others,    Want All Bar-Rooms Closed.  Stratford, Ontario, Feb. 2S.���The Royal  Templars Council today discussed political  action.   The committee reported a clause  favoring a recital of sir* Oliver Mowat's  pledge to enact the fullest   measure  of  prohibition consistent with the powers of  the Ontario legislature, also reciting Hon.  Mr. Hardy's acceptance of the obligation.  The clause recommended that a deputation be named to wait upou Mr. Hardy's  ministers at once, asking whether or not  the pledge is ever to be fulfilled.   A great  deal of opposition to the clause was developed, based   upon   the  action ] of the  Dominion  Alliance    in   deciding   not to  make *any efforts in any other direction  until the decision of tlie Dominion gov-"  eminent in  regard to the plebiscite has  been made known,   The Grand' Council  ��� voted   to approach  the   Ontario govern-  Vmept. asking that every bar-room in the  .  ��� province be closed, the understanding being that sir Wilfrid Laurier's decision was  !to be awaited and considered before taking action.     \ .   .

TUESDAY ...��������� .FEBRUARY 28, 1809  Alderman Fletcher has taken the  right stand on the electric light question.  The city should not go into partnership  with the Bonnington Falls or any other  company. If sufficient power cannot be  developed from the water now controlled;  by the city, then let other water rights be  acquired. The city should always be in a  position to lower rates to users, and this  cannot be done if it has a power company  for a partner. One of the advantages of  municipal ownership of water and light  systems is the control over the rates  charged consumers. Nelson owns its  water and light systems and the rates  -charged consumers are much lower than  the rates paid by the people of Rossland,  where the water and light systems are  owned by private companies.  It is not possible for a newspaper in  the interior to form a fair idea of the  -value of the legislation enacted at the  ^session of the assembly brought to a close  ^yesterday, nor is.it possible to give even a  V   summary of   the   important   bills made  VV laws.

Failure at Washington must put an   end  to  Conservative  hopes of  profit  from the  negotiations.  Almost any sort of a treaty would have  beep useful to the opposition, but it will  be hard for even sir Charles Tupper to  make Votes for his   party   by denouncing    sir    Wilfrid   Laurier   for    failing  when he could only succeed by the sacrifice ot* his Country's interests.   Canada's  representatives at Washington have been  handicapped by their own past utterances.  They proclaimed a mistaken belief that  access to the United States market was a  matter of life and death to Canada.   The  words they uttered in opposition returned  to    curse    them    in   office,   and   a   belief  that Sir Wilfrid Laurier was afraid  to come home without a treaty is one of  the influences which induced the United  States diplomats to drive a hard bargain.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has come home without a treaty so far.   The Conservative  leaders cannot help their  party by  denouncing his failure.

If you have strong nerves and a sense of  humor, I do not know of a better place of  amusement in Paris than the Chamber of  Deputies. We went last week with a  friend, a deputy, on a Friday, the ��� day  reserved for "interpellations." The impressions I carried away were vivid. Remembering the relicof Oriental barbarism,  the ladies' gallery at the -House of  Commons, where, if not on the front row,  one squints one's eyes in a vain ��� effort to  see, a woman's first impression on seating  heraelf in the French chamber's lower  tribune is that of gratitude toward the  polite race that reserves the first two  benches for the fair sex.  Though the decorations are strictly in  Empire style���green hangings with stiff  gold borders and wreaths, severe desks  with brass inlays���there is an air of democratic simplicity about the huge amphitheatre, or hemicycle, to be exact.' Above  a cold bas-relief���France distributing  laurel crowns to somebody, the allegory  is as clear as such allegories usually are-  hangs a handsome faded Gobelin, a copy-  of Raphael's "School of Athens." How'  the philosophers must laugh in -their  sleeves at night when nobody is looking  on!   ,. ; ..     .  The ushers,   with   heavy steel chains  around,:their , necks -and   tiny-looking'  - swords at their sides, fell into double file  as the distant roll of a drum is heard. The  rataplan comes.nearer and the chef, des  huissiers announces in stentorian tones:.  "M. le President detla Chambre!"     This  - office, which corresponds to that of our  speaker, is not a sinecure, as I soon found  out. The present" incumbent is M. Paul  Deschanel, son of a distinguished litterateur still holding a chair at the College de  France. M. Deschanel is the youngest  man who has ever held the post; he is  universally.respected for his moderation,  energy, and impartiality. One takes an  instinctive liking to .him  as he briskly  \. mounts the steps and seats himself in his  mighty mahogany chair. Sleek and well-'  groomed, he wears evening-dress���white  cravat and all���the only- man en' habit: in  the assemblage. With.his sharp features,  and alert air,'you would take him -for a  successful Wall Street broker.  The members-drift -in, lounge about, '���  and hail one another with a.Latin,pro.  fusion of gesture.

Stentor rbars out: "Messieurs, la seance;  est ouVertel" and the preliminary .skir-  niishing.begins. A Verbose, black-avised  Algerian deputy brings forth a grievance  against certain Neapolitan fishermen,  who, though they .'��� spend only three  months of .the year on the Algerian coast,  are naturalized and get the benefits of  French citizeisiship. He is plainly considered a borefwitn his Neapolitan fishermen, and his voice is promptly drowned  in a universal conversation that rise?  from the three hundred or so members  present. Nothing daunted, he reads his.  speech to the bitter end, and is succeeded  'by a hairy socialist, who gallops into the  arena On "a hobby that, it seems, prances:  regularly once a year, to wit, the turning1  to  some useful   purpose  of the*plot of'  ground   now  covered   by   the   Chapel!*  Expiatoire, where the bodies of Louis, the  Sixteenth  and   Mary  Antoinette rested  till   placed in   the abbey at  St.   Denis.  The absurd   little socialist,    hatter  by  trade, finds in the monument an "obstacle  to the march of the republic and a scandal to the world !"  Anybody who remembers the melancholy spot on Boulevard  Haussmann, with its gray stone cloisters  simulating    classic    tombs   among   the  drooping lilacs, would grieve to think of  some modern, commonplace building rising and destroying all trace of the tragic  East.   The socialist gets a deserved snub-.,  ing from M. Dupuy, who concludes with  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  dignity: "To  insure  the march  of pro-  SresB, I trust we may never be forced to.  isturb the repose of the dead."  Heretofore, the object of the assemblage seems to have been to make as  much noise as possible and compel the orator to crack his voice in shouting out  his address. In vain M. Deschanel has  rapped on the brass-bound rim of his desk  with a heavy wooden paper.cutter���a  mild instrument, but one that he does  good execution with. In vein has he rung  a big lever-handled bell that stands within ' reach of his hand. In vain has the  deep-voiced usher at regular intervals,  like a pendulum that wags every five  minutes, roared iu a benevolent voice, always with the same inflection: "Silence,  messieurs, s'il vous plait !"���  But  if one had   thought the seance a  noisy one thus far, what was there left to  think when, after a lull of a minute or  ���two,  the speaker���for we will so call M.  Deschanel���announced, impressively: "La  parole   est   a  M.  Berton.       The   young  socialist, known.among his following as  La Gosse���translated "the Kid," though  he is much  more of a lamb in aspect���  mounts the tribune and  begins his interpellation concerning the so-called diplomatic dossier in the aifaire.   The extraordinary   long  frock-coat  that   he  has  donned  for  the   occasion   gives  him a  quaint   village-dominie  look.     His  fair  locks and St. John's  beard go  with his  high, Sistine Chapel tenor voice. 0But he  is a peruistent  little.fighter for all his  looking so mild as milk.   .A long prologue  filled    with    time-worn     phrases���"the  friends of light and truth," "the immortal  principles of '80," and the rest of the litany  ���gets the audienc* into a rage of impatience.      'What   are    you.  driving at?"  "Come to the point!" "Where- do you go  to find your friends of light and truth ?"  are hurled at him.   The speaker shouts  to the last interrupter:'   "M. Lazies, may  I beg of ..you - for the hundredth time to  abandon that intolerable habit of yours  of constantly breaking in on the orator ?"  Ah ! Aha! of satisfaction and relief greets  the cherub when -he finally reaches the  object .of his interpellation:   "Does the  ultra-secret dossier exist? .If it existed  did it contain letters from,the emperor of.  Germany?   If  so, -what 'has become of  these letters?"   The minister of foreign  affairs, M.  Delcasse,L answers - promptly,  "No !" and starts a hearty, laugh by winding up :    "If such letters had been manufactured jthey  certainly  would  .not   be  brought to. the' Quai d Orsay."  However  naif diplomats may be considered, such  stuff they never would accept."  In the meantime a grand free fight has  developed between the orator and Mr.  Millevoye. Sides are taken. The noise is  awful. Shouts reverberate from one side  of the.room to the other. ."A cowardly  attack 1" is the cry. Members rise from  their seats and. join the fray. It is a  wordy war; no actual blows . are, exchanged. ADelsartian might get points  onVgesture, however. The-president of  the Chamber���one wonders his hair stays  ��� so-sleek, it ought to stand on end���puts  his hand to his mouth to make a speaking-  trumpet, and yells: "Messieurs, have you  utterly forgotten that the proprieties (les  convenances) must'be observed?"

The  manifestation was pronounced "unforget-  able, significant," an oration���enfin ; the  word is not so much abused here as it is  with us.

For the benefit of the public I will make  the following statement: I challenge  anyone to prove a single instance where I  refused to admit a fit and deserving person, according to hospital rules, for treatment, observing at all times professional  etiquette, when there was accommodation  iu the Kootenay Lako General hospital.  The rules practiced in courts of justice to  be adopted for taking evidence, etc., iu  this case.  I deposit with you, Mr. Editor, a certi-  Qed cheque i'or the the sum of $50, to be  forfeited to the said hospital if my statement is proven incorrect, providing the  person accepting the challenge does the  same and accepts it over his own signature.  There, Mr. Editor, is a fair, plain, definite statement, which I am sure will  satisfy every unprejudiced person, aid  unless this challenge-is taken up I shall  not have anything further to say on tlie  subject.

There was too  much in yesterday's programme for ttie  TKii_uni_ representative to follow,. .The  dishes succeeded each other too quickly1;"  and had a habit of becoming so hopelessly.  mixed on the stove, that they bore out  the remark pf the, lecturer that there was  a grave danger of becoming mixed.

The performance given last night in the  Nelson Opera house by the- Buchanan  company was attended by about 200 people. The acting, as a whole, was fair, but  the pl&y, "Queen's Evideuce," gave little  Opportunity for the display of much dramatic talent. Tonight "Fanehon the  Cricket" will be produced.  Rev. Robert Frew is on his way to  Revelstoke to attend the sessions of the  Kamloops Presbytery, which opens at  Revelstoke tomorrow.  James Bowesof Silverton was in Guelph,  Ontario, ten days ago. .He is now a married  man, having found a wife at Listowel,  Ontario.  It is rumored that the Kootenay Railway & Navigation Company has made  arrangements for the building of a new  steamer to run between the end of the  Nelson & Bedlington road and Kootenay  Lake points.  A game of curling was played last  night between two rinks composed of  George W. Steele, James Lawrence, A.  Currie, Frank Tamblyn (skip), Dr. G. A.  B. Hall, R.S, Kinghorn, J. ft Wallace,  judge Forin (skip), resultinc in a victory  for the latter by a score of 13 to S poiuls.  The game was keenly contested, the score  on the ninth end being Sail, but the last  three ends Tamblyn was off play and  failed to score a point.  The tug Ymir will have considerable  speed. On her trial trip she made fourteen  miles an hour, which is about equal to the  speed of the steamer Nelson in her best  days.  The Canadian Pacific barge brought in  fifteen cars from Kootenay Lniiding last  night. Thirteen ware loaded with Crow's  Nest enke for tlie Trail smelter and the  other two coutninrd domestic coal for  local par tie?.  Alex. Long, the prospector and miner,  can hear of something to his advantage  by calling at the office of Thk Tribune.  The skating race last night at the Crystal rink between E. J. Scovilof Kaslo  and Otto Augustine of Sandon for the  championship of British Columbia, was  won easily by Scovil by one lap. The ice  was in good condition and there was a  fair attendance of spectators.  W. II. Grant, accountant for P.

Nelson is not the only city exploited.  Tammany is exploiting New Yoik city as  freely as of old, the city's law department  affording one rich and typical sample.  Mayor Van Wyck, himself a lawyer and  once a judge, has a counsel detailed simply to advise him ou legal matters at  $9000 a year, and Guggenheimer, president of the municipal council, at $5000 a  year, although a lawyer, has a counsel of  his own at $0000.- And there are others.
