 VALUES  TO  ASSESSOR'S   ROLL   READY.  TAX  o interest, charges on   the city's  , iind of one per cent in interest  The chief business transacted at the  meeting of the city council last evening  was the decision to transfer the city's  bank account from the Bank of -Montreal  to the .Merchants Bank of Halifax. The  question was brought up in a recommendation from the finance committee,  tliat the tender of the -Merchants Bank  of Halifax for the handling of the account of (.lie city be accepted. It was  pointed out by alderman Beer that there  would be a saving of half of one per  cent in tl  overdraft  allowed on the city's sinking funds. The  Merchants Bank of Halifax offered to allow the city .four per cent interest on its  deposits, and to charge oi per cent upon  advances to the city. The tenders of tlie  other three banks were uniform at six  per cent for advances and three per cent  on sinking funds.  When the, minutes of the former mooting were read alderman Hillyer raised the  'question ofthe shelving of John Hamilton as auditor. He was in formed, however, that the question did not properly  arisevout of--the minutes, and promised  to bring the matter up again.  The report of the finance committee  recommended (1) the payment of the current accounts ; (2) that tlie salary of the  city auditor be fixed at $200 per annum,  payable monthly.;; (8) that the public  works committee be authorized to estimate upon the expenditure of $17,000 for  the repair and maintenance of streets,  new sidewalks, repairs to sidewalks and  other repairs ; (4) that the offer of the  Merchants 'Bank of Halifax be accepted,  and    that   the   city's  bank  account  be  ^  ��^#  TUESDAY MOKNTNG,  APRIL  18D1).  TOWN OF YMIR AND VICINITY  LOCAL   AND   MINING.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY,  changed to that institution.  The first three clauses of the report  were accepted without debate, but upon  the question of the changing of the city's  account from the Bank of Montreal to the  -Merchants Bank of Halifax there Avas  stormy discussion.  Alderman Hillyer "was the first to take  objection to the change, and he was supported in his objection by both alderman  Fletcher and Thomson. The action of  the finance committee in calling for tenders from the several banks without  authority from the council was challenged,  aiid the manner in which tlie tenders had  been received was also condemned. It  came out during the discussion that the  tenders from three of the banks were received.nnd openedVnnd��that two or three,  days Iaterthe tender'from the -Merchants  Bunk of Halifax came in, which'was "more  favorable than aiiy of those received Trom  the other b.inks. J     *"   * ,  * 'Alderman Thomson explained to the  other members of the committee that he  " and alderman McKillop had looked into  the matter of the difference between the  dates of the tenders of the other banks  and that of the-Merchants Bank of Mali-  fax, and he had been shown the letter  book in the bank which showed that figures sent in bad been decided upon on  the same date as the tenders from the  other hanks were received. The letter  written on this date however had been  destroyed and a second letter was afterwards written.  Jt was stated by those who opposed  the transfer of the account; that the saving would not amount to more than $100  on the year's business, and that it was  not a good business move for the corporation to change its account from one  bank to another unless there was a material gain in so doling.  Alderniaii Beer- jnoAtod the adoption of  ==the'.eifttise��o-;="t>lie^repoi'tr ^=.^ --^  Alderman Hillyer moved in amend*  meat that t).e tender of the Bank of  -Montreal be accepted for the city account,  and the amendment was seconded by  alderman Pletehor.  There was no seconder to the motion  for tlie adoption of the report so alder*-  man Hi]Iyer's amendment was made the.  main motion and alderman Beer then  moved an aniendniei.t that the tender of  the Merchants Bank of Halifax be accepted  Tlie amendment was put first and was  supported by all three members of the  .inancc committee���aldermen Beer, Mcv  Killop and Kirkpatrick. Akiernieu J-J.il.'l-  yoi*and Fletcher voted in tho negative  and alderman Thomson shirked the vote.  Mayor Neelands then declared the motion of alderman Hillyer lost. He then  put the amendment as the main motion  and alderman Fletcher moved iii amendment that the city's bank account be not  changed. Ou tliis amendment the same  vote was recorded, alderman Thomson  again refusing to vote, and the mayor declared the-motion to change the bank account carried.  The public AVorks committee's report  went through Avithout amendment. It  recommended (1) the sale ofthe rock on  Ward street to A. AV. McPhail; (2) that  sewers be constructed : along Kootenay  street to Silica street; ou Silica street to.  the alleyway in block 31 and through the  alleyway to Mill street, and branch sewers through blocks 92 aud 93 in the alleyways; Ward street to Cedar street  through the alley way in blocks 33, 34, 35  and 36; (3) that an eight-foot sidewalk  be laid on tlie north side of Baker' street,  from Kootenay street to Falls . street; a  six-foot sidewalk on Carbonate street  from Ward street to.

A. Say ward  for the supplying of city lumber be accepted at $0 per thousand feet.  The city assessor presented his report  upon the assessed value of the land and  improvements iu the city. ft showed  the total A*alue of the land and improvements to be $1,(H2,3.1. The returns for  the east end were: real estate, $009,720;  improvements, $28:3,11;".; total, $f)54,S35.  A Vest ward: real estate, $501,070; improvements, $185,500; total, $087,470.

The council decided to hold a court of  revision on .Tune 1st, and mayor Neelands, aldermen Hillyer, .Fletcher, Thomson and McKillop Avere constituted a  court, of revision.

In his opinion in the Dunlop versus  Itaney case, Mr. justice Walkem scored  the lawyer avIio represented the plaintiff  for his dilatory practices. It seems that  the plaintiff took out his writ on August  5th, 1897, and on August 2nd, 1898, he  applied successfully to have it renewed,  the application being made ex parte upon  -iffidavit.   The defendant contended that  the order for renewal and all subsequent  proceedings taken by plaintiff should be  set aside on the grounds that no bona  fide effort was made on behalf of the  plaintiff to sei-A'e the original writ, and  that he was therefore not entitled to  havo the "writ renewed. Mr. justice Walkem held that it was  evidently the intention of the legislature  to secure, as far as possible, a speedy adjustment of mining disputes, and thus  promote the deA'elopnient of the mineral.  !interests of tlie country. He says in' his  decision : "It assuredly would be a most  " mischievous thing to hold that a.plaintiif  " might, in the face of this provision*, take  "out a writ, put it in his pocket, keep it  " therefornearly twelve months, and then,  ", as. in this case, make a sort of spasmodic  ".effort to,serve it "at the .last moment."

The late Felix Faure, president of  Franco, died 'at the apttrtinents of Aim e.-  .*��� ,,.-.Sore], the well-known vaudeville artist  and I'arisian sttige beauty. Sorel was  one of the president's favorites. She is  exceptionally attractive .and intelligent  iind has social aspirations which she  wished the president to help her realize.  <*��� Several days before his death Faure  had decided upon holding a fancy dress  ball at the Elysee. Sorel heard of this  ball and determined to have tin invitation  and to attend it. Faure. promised her the  invitation.  When he wont home that day he remarked to inaclame Faure that among  those .who were importuning him for invitations to the ball was an actress, and  he proceeded to present Sorel's claims in  the same way that they had been presented to him.- But his acting did not  work. Aline. Faure smelt a rat and put  her foot down. She iimilly delivered as  an ultimatum that if the actress was  invited she and her daughter would remain away.  So Felix had to go to Sorel and ask to  be permitted to withdraw his promise to  send her an invitation. Strangely  enough, therefore, the last half day of his  life was spent in this manner, lie called  * , first upon cardinal Richard and for two  hours discussed with him religio-political  questions.    The  cardinal was anxious to'  V know * what progress the- new-found  "'friendship between France and Italy had  been  making at the   Vatican.    He also  wished to  be,informed  to-what extent  pope Leo was promoting this friendship.  After ho had  finished  this  interview,  - like a man of common. clay,\ho * went  ; 'around*-to have it out" with the pretty'  actress on tho subject of the invitation to  '"��� the fancy dress ball. Sorel1" flow-into a  rage when the president of the republic  told her that it was impossible foi-him to  keep his promise and send her the invitation." Jle was no president in her eyes.  She stormed at him.*- lie complained of  illness. lie grew rapidly worse. Her  fury*1 gave place to tears aiid alarm. A'  priest was hastily summoned. He was  AbbeJ-Ierzog/ director of the Aladcleine,  . and he administered the last sacraments  to Sorel's dying friend at her own apartments.

That sort of  play is now left for the professional'  gamblers, and the clubs are free from it."  The same thing is true, in a great  measure, regarding the clubs in all large  cities. 'Gambling games are but little  played in any of them. Of course, whist  is played for small stakes, but tlie all-  night sessions, in which thousands of dpi-'  ltirs changed hands, tire a -memory���-and  not a particularly hallowed one���in the  clubs of the city. .  Will Operate Steamers of His Own.  Captain John Irving of Victoria has  cut loose from the C. P. N., which he had  'managed for 'years, and litis organized a  line, to be known as the Irving Line. It  will be personally managed by captain  Irving, whose long experience in British  Columbia marine matters and also his  long personal knowledge .'of the North  and its conditions, cannot but pixrve important factors in the .making of success  for his new line, so that next season' will  probably see four or six A'essels required  to.maintain the service wliich in a few  weeks is to be modestly inaugurated Avith  ,'two." Of these two, the larger, to be  named tlie Gleaner, is building at Bennett  lake under the supervision of captain  Armstrong, who will command her.

She, too, is to be a stern  Avheeler, seventy feet in length over all,  and���like the Gleaner���possessing the  speed of fourteen miles an hour. The  engines for both these vessels tire from  the Marine Iron Works of Chicago, while  nothing is being omitted in their construcj  tion that will contribute to their speed,  safety or convenience.

Cascade Record, April 8.  Last Tuesday's semi-monthly meeting  of the Cascade Taxpayers' Association  Avas one of unusual importance, ancl notice had been sent out previously by the  secretary that a resolution to endorse  the granting of the Kettle River railway  charter by tlie Dominion parliament-  Avould be presented for consideration.  Other business came up and was transacted, but.the above notice was evidently  what'the majority of those present were  most interested in. The folloAving is the  form of the resolution, which avus moved  by J. II. Good and seconded by John  Earle, ancl was unanimously carried :  ���Whereas a petition has been presented to the Dominion government by D. 0.- Corbin, for "a charter authorizing the construction of a railroad from the state of  Washington, United States of America, through that  portion of southern British Columbia known as the Kettle River valley," and  Whereas, in tho opinion of this association, said railway would be bencfic'al to the business interests of the  section of British Columbia through which it would pass  therefore.  Resolved, that this association favors the granting of a  LUMBER  SHINGLES  charter for any railroad through this sectiqnupon first  obtaining assurance of the immediate construct ion of the  same; further,  Resolved, that copies of this resolution be forwarded  to Hon. Mr. Blair, minister of railways and canals, and  to Hewitt Bostock, M.I'..  This is the wish of the business men of  Cascade, expressed through the business  association of the place. It is a plain,  straightforward endorsement of the long-  talked-of plan to build a railway up the  Kettle river yalley. There is no A'erbosity  or circumlocution about it. The people  belic\re in it and the-people want it.

As to gambling, it is in deep disfaA'Or. Gambling is  pi'ohibit'ed iu every large club in New  York, aud in most of them fohe members  who live in the.club-hoi.se iind that it is  unwise to give poker-parties iu their  rooms. One of the charter members of a  club which now numbers more than a  thousand members recently said that the  club Avas, started by a lot of men avIio  played poker regularly for high stakes.  "Poker for high stakes is still played in  this city," he said, "but uot by the same  class of men who, started this club. I  have sat in when men at the table avIio  lost fifteen to tAvehty thousand dollars in a night, and on the whole it was a  very costly amusement for rue, much as I  enjoyed it. When the club was organized, avo played there, and other members  did not criticise us..

A week from Thursday the doctors of  tlie province will elect st council to serve  tlieir society for the next year. The  council is made up of seven members,  and although nearly one-half of the  (nullified medical practitioners of the province reside in the interior, there was  only one doctor from the interior on the  council last year. Dr. Fagan of New  Westminster is the registrar, and the  ballot papers are forwarded to him.  Hon. Dr. McKechnie of Xanaimo is president of the society.  A. S. Farwell is back from the coast.  He reports tliat Vancouver appears to be  growing, and that apparently there are  more people.on flovernineut street, Victoria, than ever before, lie, also, wiys  that there does not appear to be any  great change in any of the government  oj.iees���business is transacted in much  the same fashion as when the Turner  party was in power.  In the curly part of last evening G. O.  Ross had his face badly scorched by the  explosion of an acetylene gas plant. Tlie  plant is located outside the building occupied by Mr. Ross, and while, he was refilling it with carbide, a brother-in-law,  who recently arm-ed from Scotland, apparently of an iiiA'estigating turn of  mind, took a close look with a- lighted  lamp in his hand. The explosion was  sudden.  The city's bunker has been changed.  The -Merchants Bank of Halifax has been  substituted for the Bank of Montreal,  Nelson's pioneer bank. One by one the  old-timers get it in the neck from the  .Tohnnie-Come-Latelies.  On Sunday afternoon tlie firemen  played the professional ball players a  game ou the Hall street recreation  grounds, with the following result: Firemen .18 runs, professionals 0. The firemen played Houston c., Blackwood p.,  Campbell, Vaustone, Pfeiffer, Joe Thompson, Jeffs, Henderson and Partridge. The  professionals, had D. Smith, c, S. Neelands, 13., Emerson, J. Neelands, J. Smith,  Mills, Gray, Votaw and O'Donnell. The  game was a good one for the first three  innings, then the professionals went to  pieces.  The Nelson lawn tennis club have secured suitable lots, and will hold an adjourned general meeting at Mr. Selous'  office this evening at 8 p.m. The business that will be before tho meeting for  discussion is to complete arrangements  for providing three, playing courts . for  the coming season.
