 RUSHED THE FOUR LOAN BY-LAWS  THROUGH   FIRST   STAGES.  At tlie meeting of the city council last  evening the four money by-laws were  given their first and second readings, so  that the chances are good for the citizens  being called upon to say whether they  shall increase the debenture debt of, the  city by $(55,000. There was evidently a  desire for haste on the part of the council, and when it came to tlie second reading of tlie bylaws the four were put  through their second reading together on  one resolution, which was moved by  alderman Thomson.  When   the  bylaws came  up  for consideration,   alderman   Fletcher  made   a  little speech upon the necessity for their  passage.     He said that when the present  council took  ollice  they  found  a  small  deiicit,   but   practically   $15,000 of  the  revenue  had already  been  disposed  of.  There were   $4000  in  outstanding  bills  and $10,000 for the electric light flume  construction out of an estimated revenue  of $55,000 leaving a balance of $40,000 to  meet all requirements.     Of this amount  $15,000   were  required  i'or running expenses for the year.     To  this  should be  added   $10,000   to   meet   payments   on  account of debentures, so that there remained but $15,000 for expenditures upou  public works,  and of this about $2000  were expended upou waterworks maintenance.    He then  went  over the four  bylaws and claimed that the amounts set  out in each were required.  Alderman Fletcher moved the first  reading of the sewers by-law for raising  $15,000. It was seconded by Alderman  Beer and carried.  Alderman Thomson moved the first  reading of the waterworks by-]aw for  $30,000, which was seconded by Alderman McKillop and carried.  Alderman Fletcher -moved the first  .reading pf the electric light by-law for  $15,000,* wliich was seconded by Alderman Kirkpatrick and carried.  When tlie bylaw for raising $5000 for  public buildings was brought ,up, alder-,  'man'Beer said that he didhiot consider it  advisable to pass the bylaw in its present  shape. He did uot consider that $5000  would be enough. If the bylaw called for  $15,000 lie would support it cheerfully.  Alderman Hillyer, who opposed all the  bylaws except that for sewage, expressed  the opinion tliat tlio matter of the public  buildings bylaw could very well go over  ���for tho present year.  '���   Alderman .Fletcher,  in  answer  to alderman Beer,-said  that-if the  electric  ~ light bylaw was passed the council could  -< supplement the $5000for.public buildings  '-' with $2500 but of the general revenue. If  it was' found"* tliat'-*thc. amount'" voted  would not be sufficient the  council  need  not~ issue   the   debentures   at   all.  , He  added that the  passage  of the bylaws'  would not increase the taxes for the present year one cent, but said  nothing of  what the increase would be next year.  Tlio public buildings bylaw Avas then  given its first reading."  Alderman Thomson  then moved, seconded by  Alderman  Fletcher,  that tlie'  V four by-laws bo read a second time.   This  was agreed  to, Alderman Hillyer alone  dissenting. *   *  -  The city clerk then 'read .the sewer bylaw. The date/for. payment-of interest  and sinking fund Avals blank, and thesugr  gestiou was .made that July 1st be insulted.       " **   =      ;  .-Alderman" Fletcher- objected to this as  it would make the interest fall due this  year. He asked how it would bo to make  it the 20th of July, so that the new council would havo   tlie   work of raising the  iMftney,. _s ; _=      ==^  ~to7Wd_July 2Gth was  >o,,  ^i^y^  TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 2,  181)0.

Alderman Hillyer thought that the  question of the terms of the charter  should be referred to a committee.  Alderman'Beer said that the council  might pass upon the question of granting  the charter and the terms of the same  could be determined afterwards. He  asked Doolittle what ho would guarantee  in the way of coke works construction.  Doolittlosaid that hccould guarantee the  expenditure of $100,000 and-the company  would be willing to have twenty-live per  pointed to see what could be done'in the  way of .securing a title for some recreaA-  tion grounds in view of the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company having backed  out of its agreement with respect to tlie  present grounds.

Alderman Fletcher then moved that  tjie four by-lftws be referred to the committee of $]ie whole at tlie next" meeting  of the Council, This was carried,  . ;Dr, fjlftolittlf*'addressedthocouhcil upon  his application for a franchise f or a ga$v  and: coke worJks> He talked like a real  estate* "agent upon tlie future possibilities  of Nelson. Tlie Chief essentials for the  fujl*ui;eV of Nelson he put down as I'apid  transit and good schools^ and hext to  these lie jsaid gas came in. If his company���'The Economical Gas Company���  Avetfe given a franchise ho said it would  be prepared within 00 days to conimenee  tlie erection of a coke and gas plaiit and  expend anything up to $200,000. The  coinpaiiy would, make a Specialty of tlie  manufacture of coke, sell such gas as it  could, and use its surplus gas in the manufacture of coke instead of using the coke  as fuel. A*".-, to the local consumption of  coke lie said that the Hall Mines smelter  used from 30 to 40 tons per day and if  his company secured a franchise this coke  could be manufactured iu Nelson and the  making of it and the gas would furnish  employment for about 25 men. The chief  use made of gas at present was for power  and heat purposes) and in order that the  gas company should not compete Avitli  the city's electric light plant, lie was prepared tliat the council should fix the rate  to be charged for illuminating purposes.  Tlie company would also be prepared to  supply the city with, power for generating electricity, Avhieh would absolutely  guarantee tlie efficiency of the. city's  lighting plant at a price which would  represent the actual cost of production of  the gas. He asked that the company  have two years in which to expend $25,-  000, that the company should supply gas  for lighting at $3 per thousand feet, at  $2 for power and heating, and $1 for any  cent of the  company's  by Nelson people.  Alderman Beer then asked alderman  Hillyer if he would incorporate in his  resolution for reference to a committee  tho words "whereas, it is desirable that  a coke and gas plant be established in  Nelson if details can be arranged with  Dr. Doolittle satisfactorily."  Alderman Hillyer replied--that' there'  was a standing offer which the council  had made to other parties which stipulated that the city should have a percentage of the profits and other things.  He had no objection to incorporating the  amendment suggested by alderman Beer  but he had the terms of the council's  former offer iu mind" and would not tie  his hand in any way.  Tlie resolution Avas then auoptod and  the mayor appointed 'alderman Fletcher,  Thomson, McKillop and Beer a committee  to consider the question of the terms of  the franchise.  A letter from Macdonald   & Johnson  was then read, enclosing a draft of a  bylaw which they said  were the  greatest  concessions wliich the projected, tramway  company was prepared to make from its  former application for a franchise.    The  bylaw wliich was read  set out that the  company should have an exclusive  right  to  run   tram  cars  on tiny  of the city  streets, that the overhead trolley system  should be used, that when a line was laid  upon an  unopened  street  the company  bear ono half tho expense of dealing that  .street, that except in case of accident the  company should not suspend   the operation' of its system  for  more  than   three'  months,, and    that    in    the  -event'  of  such, a     susixmsion     for<    over    three  .months .except under specified   circumC  sttinces,  the- company's   charter should  become   forfeited.

That tlie company have an  exclusive  franchise for 35  years* that at the  end  of that time the  corporation have the right to purchase at  the end of any five  years thereafter by  giving one year's notice  and  paying the  value of the company's plant, exolusiA^e of  ^tJie-fraheliiSeratio!^prospecfciv0^prMtsT)f  five yeai's*.  The council gave the by-law as submitted its first and second; readings aiid  decided to consider it in coiiimittee at a  mooting to be held at 4 o'clock: tOmorroAV  afternoon.  Judge Forin, president of the Ivootenay  L;ike Genei'al Hospital Society, and F. tyT.  Swannell, secretary of the suine, appeared  before the council and asked for assistance. Judge Forin, in" an address to tlio  council, said tliat it Avas iie"cess.ary that  the hospital hiVve a Avomen's AYard. This  Avould require itn expenditure Of $2500.  The management had practised every  economy, but it aviis practically out of  funds and the provincial government's  grant had been virtually reduced by $1500  per year. He asked that the council ninko  a grant of $12 per Aveek tOAVard the maintenance of the hospital and a grant of  $500 conditional upon the society raising  $2000 for-the purpose of building a avo-  men's AArard. If the council did this the  society would make the hospital open to  the city's charity patients free of cost.  F. W. Swannell spoke in support of  this grant and sald*that the society had  already $000 subscribed toAA^ards the  Avoman's hospital Avard extension.  Alderman Beer moA^ed, after the matter  had been debated for some time, that the  council grant $500 conditional upon the  society raising $2000 for the A\ronian's  Avard and that a payment of $40 per  month be made for maintenance. This  AA*as seconded by alderman McKillop and  adopted.  Alderman McKillop AVas then appointed  as the representatiAre of the council upon  the hospital board and it Avas decided  that the city patients should be admitted  upon an order from the mayor and a  certificate from the hospital physician.

The matter of the refusal of the Kootenay Lake General Hospital Society to admit Elizabeth AVaite into the hospital on  Saturday was the subject for a coroner's  inquest yesterday afternoon. A.s was  announced in Till-: Tiuiil'XK Sunday  morning, the woman was eventually admitted to the institution, but died before  she could   be   placed   upon   a  bed.r,    ''.  The woman Avas brought to'Nelson by a  physician, 'Dr. Thomas A. .Wilson,  Avho  attended   her  for a couple  of days   at  Kuskonook.     fie   was  treating   her  for  pneumonia, and on  Saturday decided to  bring hor to the Nolson hospital.    Tlie  arrangements   which,   he  made for  the  Avoman's remoAral Avill strike most people  'as being rather careless.    Tlie pneumonia  patient was removed in A*cry scant clothing.    It .consisted  of a piece  of flannel  around her chest, an  underArest aud a  nightshirt.    When, the  steainer arrived  at Nclson,'about 0:45 in the  evening, she  was Avrapped in some blankets and placed  in an express Avagon on a stretcher.    In  this condition' she Avas. brought  to  the  hospital accompanied by Dr. Wilson.   He  demanded! admittance for the patient,  Avhieh Avas   refused, as he had no order.  The matron telephoned to  Dr. Hall  asking -what should be done, and as the hospital physician did not kuo\v tlie  nature,  of the Avoman's disease, he said she could  not be admitted, especially as there Avas  'no room for her in  the  institution.    Dr.  jWilson,  strangely  enough, did  not  say  that hc Avas a  physician,  Avhieh  would  lni/ve   ensured    the   woman's  admission  temporarily, at any  rate, but droAre the  patient aAvay to the corner of Baker and  Josephine streets. A .messenger Avas then  sent to judge Forin, and he came doAvn to  the corner where the express Avagon  Avas.  standing.    Dr.  Wilson did not  disclose  to   judge     Forin      tliat     he     Avas   a  ���physician.    He said the Avoman Avas suffering   from  pneumonia.

The resultwas, that" judge-Forin  -issued"an   Order'- for.

The jurors Avpro AV. AV. Beer,  foreman. A. II. Clements, ��� .1. F. Weir.  Horace Hume, James Wallace and Duncan McDonald. Tho chief evidence  brought out so far as the hospital authorities are concerned was the testimony of  Dr. Hall, to the elfcot that lie Avas not  informed of the dying condition of the  Avoman; that he did not know, she Avas  accompanied by a physician, and therefore could not tell what the nature of  Jior^iU'sease^vas.J=anc]^*Hj.e=tei5tinion5feo-f=  judge Foriii that .the order for1 the  Avoman's admission was given merely to  provide �����. shelter for her to die in.  The jury's verdict Avas that the  Woman's death AVas due to pneumonia',  and that the refusal of admittance Avas  due to tlie fact tba;t there is oo women's  Avard in the KoOfcoiiny Lake general hospital, and they strongly urged the Jiro-  vtuciaJ goYei'inliQiit to make a .special  grant sufficient to provide such a ward.  dared at the department that the proclamation issued by the Philippine commission just before the beginning of last  campaign presents the maximum concessions tliat will be made. The United  States government is willing to accord to  tho natives an opportunity to test tlieir  abilities, for the Philippine coin-  mission proposes to allow them . complete control of their local affairs. The  experiment is already in progress at some  points in the."Philippines outside the  island of Luzon. So far as the reports  indicate, these experiments are working  well, and promise to have a good influence in shaping, the attitude towards  the'United States of a considerable element among the-Philippines wliich has  been suspicious of our intentions.   ���  WAS   "JOE"   MARTIN   WORSTED?

"It lias always seemed tome tliat about
the  slickest thing  in the  way of trunk
juggling  that I  oversaw,"  said  an  old
. railroad  man,   "was   something that   a
baggage man named Billy Skaggly used
to do at a place called Prairie  Junction
on the M. N. andT. road.    Billy was running then  on the old G. X. & Q., Avhieh
was at that time an independent line, but
practically a branch of the M. jV. & T.,
coming in at Prairie  .Junction,  running
along back of the station at an angle and
striking  the M. N. track a hundred feet
or more to the west.    This inclosed a sort
of a V-shaped  open space, like a V lying
down on its side, between their track on
one side  aud the  station and  the M. N.
track on the other, the widest part being
back   of   the   station.     This   part   Avas
planked over, from the station to the G.
X. track, making a broad platform there,
and when trains came iu on  the G. X. '&
Q. a man  used to roll  a  baggage  truck
across this platform to the baggage car,
aiid they'd get the baggage out on it, and
then  he'd roll  it back  across the broad
.•platform.to tlie station.    That's the way
they Avere doing  there before Billy came
—the way they do it under like circumstances everywhere;  but Billy said that
was all a waste of time, labor aud trouble,
and he. soon put into  operation, here a

gage to.sser, but that that one mishap
had cost 'em in one way and another
more than the hire of a man to carry
the baggage across would cost them for
"five years, and the lirsfc thing I knew the
bouncing pad had been taken up and the
man was back with the baggage truck,
rolled up in front of the baggage ear
door iii the old familiar way."
The position of employers in regard to
trades unions, as a rule, is not so much
that of antagonism as it is of apprehension. The right to organize no sane person can seriously dispute. That much is
conceded beyond controversy. The object of the association of interests is the
kernel of Avh'sit.-difficulty there may be.
It is purely protective as against possible abuse. The only one to apprehend
danger is the man who is disposed to that
kind of mischief. The employer who is
fair and square in his dealings AA'ith his
workmen, and has nothing in his methods
to provoke resentment, is no more appre-

bouncing the trunks. After he'd got 'em
started he'd keep two in the air all the
time; starting oiie oil its' arched course
through the air from the car door to the
pild before tlie trunk ahead had disappeared through the '.door of tlie baggage
1-001)1. And this AVeut along just as nice
aiid comfortable ns could be till, as usual,
souiethiiig happened,
:"Billy pulled down fi-oni the stack in
tije. car One clay, and rolled along on its
end to the car doOr,a big,.-massive trunk,
marked 'Snakes; Handle with Care.'
Billy had seen tlio words 'halidlo Avith
care' before, and he had also heard of
trunks being marked 'Snakes,' 'Dynamite'
and that sort of thing, and so the marks
on this massive trunk did not impress
him strongly. He hustled it along to the
doorway, seized it by the handle, lifted it
and launched it through the air. Very
likely this Avas the first trunk that Billy
ever missed the mark Avith, and I don't
suppose he'd have missed. Avith this one
if the handle hadn't broken just as he let
go of it; but it missed the pad by about
an inch and a half and came doAvn on the
hard platform A\rith a bang that busted
the corner Avide open. EA^eii as it was,
the trunk, bounded Avell up into the air.
It had rubber knobs on its corners to protect it and the plank it struck on Avas
Avas springy; but it didn't bound toAvard
the station door; it Avas deflected at
another angle; and as it rose snakes began dropping out of its busted loAver
corner. A man Avho could easily have
got out ofthe Avay, but for the fact that
he :A\ras sort of fascinated by the sight of
the falling snakes, Avas knocked clown by
the flying trunk and had his leg broken.
This accident broke up Billy's transfer
system at Prairie Junction. The super

hensive of trades   unionism  tinman honest man  is  of   the   police.    It has come
about, however, that organized bodies of
employers   in some   instances   have lost
sight of  the   primal   idea,  of  right, and
have adopted methods and measures that
haAre made them uiirua.sona.blo and dictatorial.    When this  point  of demoralization has been   reached   the power of mischief becomes a force adverse to tlie common good.    This  has   never been  so emphasized anywhere as   in  Great Britain.
Here   trades   unions   have  matured  into
historic and   powerful  bodies.    They arc
the evolution  of centuries and are part
and parcel  of industrial  life.    They are
not    mushrooms    to    be   crushed     with
boot  or  hoof,   nor  reeds  shaken   in the
wind, or fails  that are  in fashion today
and out of it  tomorrow.    It is :i block of
granite   in   the   industrial   structure not
easily moved, overlooked, or to be treatud
with impunity.    It docs not follow, however, that the 'completeness of an organization is a   guarantee  of the intelligence
or common sense of its constituents.   The
body may be symmetrical, but the spirit
therein   goblin-like.    Sometimes   a   fool
straddles    a    Clydesdale,     and     a   demented   engineer   handles   the   throttle
of a Baldwin, -and   iii   either  case  the
danger of a fall or a collision is increased.
It is precisely the same Avi than organized
body of employers Avhen sound sense and
good   reason  are not  in " control.     It is
true  that  the  labor   unions    of   Great
Britain haA'e produced some grand types
of men,, masterful, heroic and  dignified
figures; statesmen of industry and champions  of justice.     Tliey  held fractiosu
factions in leech, and the most clogged and
resolute of men, Avho against real or imaginary  Avrongs  Avould  struggle to the
bitter end.    Such leaders led the Avay to
higher  ideals,  and  Avere  benefactors of
their race in giA'ing to labor a  more intelligent   conception  of  the .mutual interests    of the  employed, and  the  employer.    It seems, hoAvevor, of late years,
there has been a fractious and semi-insane
breaking   away   from   intelligence   and
good sense on the part of  the  employer.
They have  been  pigheaded, obtuse and
self-stultidying.    It is this kind of block-
headed stupidity that  has  dm-en  labor
and capital iu Great Britain into hostile
camps.    It may be that each Avill respect
the power of {he.other, and between the
liring lines industrial pence may lie assured. One thing, however, is certain,
that when gunpowder is lying around
loose a stray match might cause an explosion, and so it is in regard to the
eight-hour bill. It Avould be well if the
Employers Federation did a. little thinking over this matter and notactso hasty.

The boys will, no doubt, appear  to advantage in trousers and coats; but  at their best they will not look well  bare-headed. The government is probably sndowcd much like the philanthropic old gentleman who established the  blue-eoat school in lihigland; the boys  who arc admitted to it wear blue coats  and go bare-headed. Captain Hodgins'  sojers will wear green coats and go bareheaded.  James Neelands is back from Halcyon  hot springs better, and -reports Robert IL Lemon as fettle as an eighteen-  year-old-iiiaiden.  The factory part of Gray's mills has  been running several days under the  foreiiianship of Thomas Spi'Oat,-one of  the best workers in wood in this country.  The sawmill will be started up in a day  or two.  James Lawrence. Martin O'Reilly and  AV. J.

Philip White of Ymir and Stephen  By water of Montana are in towu ou business connected with the stocking of the  Wilcox group, near Ymir, to be known as  the Broken Hill Mining Company. A  strong company has been formed and the  stock will be on the market ih about ten  days. ������       o  New Denver is a peculiar town. It  holds to high prices, which have obtained  from its birth. Especially is this so in  breadstuil's, resulting in living being  ���much more-., expensive' there than in the  neighboring toAvns. The departmental  stores of the east get a large percentage  of the ready cash of tlie place, while the  local business houses secure the credit  list.  Yesterday the tramway syndicate purchased the Victoria hotel, on Victoria  street, from D. A. McDonald. The price  paid was $4500.  F. J. Farley of Spokane is back in Nelson, wishing ho hadn't left it so soon.  Snow on May 1st in Nelson astonished  even historian Collins, who has been in  the country since 1S0S.

The success of tlie English concern's venture will place the Slocan on a more profitable basis for the investment of capital,  as in the past American smelters have  held this camp's ores liable to penalty  because of the zinc.
