During  the  term  of  the   previous  council   this  matter was broached, by captain Duncan  anil C'S. Druiiiinoiid, and the council at  that  time passeil a resolution setting out  that no obstacles would be placed in the  way of the company securing a  charter.  Since then the matter has been taken up  by the British Electric Traction Company,  and VV. A. Macdonald, as the company's  solicitor, appeared at the council meeting  last evening and  asked  the  council  to  again pass in favor of the franchise.    He  explained that it was  the  desire of the  promoters     to     cable     to    the    directors    meeting    in     London     that     the  council        Avas        favorably       inclined  to the granting of the franchise and that  it  would  submit a by-law to "the ratepayers authorizing the  granting of the  charter.    If such a resolution Avas passed  he  said  that the  company  .would  feel  warranted  in  undertaking a great deal!  of the preliminary Avork at  once, and soi  soon as the ratepayers consented', to the'  granting of the franchise Avork "'would be  proceeded'  with    vigorously,    and    cars.  Avould  be running ^as  soon  as possible  All that the company desired Avas a charter for 35. years and exemption from'taxation upon, its property.    Mr. .Macdonald  explained that, the British Electric Traction. Conip'aiiy'would be the parent company "of. the'Company .to be incorporated  in this province*.'. and  as  an  evklence of  its strength he said "that it  already controlled about forty   different  tramway!  lines in  Great -'Britain..and .other', countries.- ���*���"..  The council decided to comply with,  the request to submit a by-hiAv to the  ratepayers for their approA'al, upon the  understanding tliat the company should  give satisfactory eAridenee of its ability  to etirry l but the; work, and that VAvithin  tAvo�� uionthsi.after.fithe .grantiugiof.the:  "ehartei'^vthe^coinptviiy^shoidd.fcomuienee.

There  were' present at. the meeting aldermen  Lfletehcr and Thomson and mayor  Neelands.  Upon   the  proposal   to spend  $30,000  upon the water  works  system, the  city  engineer stated that the chief expenditure  would be upon the pipe-line up Cotton-  avooiI  creek.    This  work he considered  necessary   as  the   supply   of   water  in  Anderson   creek   in  February hist  was  much   loAver  thaii  at any  time  in  the  preA'ious year. The loAvest stage of water  hist .-"year was  in  September. Avhen  the  flow of Avatei- was  estimated  at  125,000  gallons in the 24 hours, but in February  this supply decreased to 300,000 gallons.  In estimating a 'supply for the future of  Ne]son he'based his figures.upon a supply  of 100 gtil Ions per day for every head of  population.    This he said  Avas a liberal  allowance, since  in the large  cities  the  supply was estimated at froni thirty  to  fifty gallons per head.     For the pipe line  up  Cottonwood   creek  he  said   that  it  would rest Avith  the  council Avhether  a  12-inch or a 14-inch pipe should be used.  As nearly as he  could "judge  the  difference in the cost as between'"the" two sizes  of pipe Avould be but ten cents per foot.  His own  opinion  Avas  that the  smaller  pipe Avould  carry   an  ample  supply, of  .water for a popularion of from 10,000 to  12,000 people, as it Avbuld.give' something  OArer 900,000 gallons of water per day. Of  this  pipe   he   figured   that   10,000  feet  would be required, and  alloAving for an  increase of tAventy per cent in the cost of  pipe, the-cost .Avould.be" about  $2.25 per  foot or $22,500 for the entire length. For  the dam at the intake li e estimated a cost  of: $1000.    This brought the total up to  $23,000and the engineer aud members of  the" committee thought that there should  -be at least $5000^.additib,hali'proyided.:!-f6r'..  ,^teiisj.oiism-to.^he.|,system.y ^ This|cahie*;  ���:witfiiul$L5ft03%'wthe"}rbiiiid3  .the-conimittee as'sthe.amount required .so  siheii't^-autV-'-.e'xteiisibu  ��*yW,kek the qXiestioii^ofJseweriextensionsj  ^asreaehed^thejconimittee'also.consicler?  already something over $0000 to be provided by electric light debentures to  make good expenditures made.  .Alderman Fletcher then the city electrician's estimate for improvements at  $3000 and the expenditures already made  aud provided for at $0000. This gave-a  total of $0000. The Hume he said would  require at least $3000 to complete. This  brought the total up to $12,000, aud to  this there hail to be added $1000 for repairs to the electric light dam. There  was then the claim of the owners of the  Innis Addition for $2000 for some overflowed hinds, which, while it might be  cut down, would require some provision,  ���so. that with other necessary tinkering  the chairman of the committee thought  the $15,000 asked for would be bnrely  sufficient.  The members of the committee did not  appear to know very much about the  proposed expenditure of $5000 for the  addition to the city hall, but the opinion  Avas general, that the city oflicials re-  miired. "more room, so the $5000 for an  addition to the city hall Avas recommended- along with the other three  amounts, and the committee recommended that the council raise the whole  $05,000 by the stile of debentures.  .(!cit^,*i e1��gm  lexteiisious^  thejyconnnitteeihadpclecided..-upon," avouuI"  ��.*.,��  ,l>'-  B   ����� A.'" ��3p�� "li 1 'Hp %���  ^* ��".'fc/D^V^J D..D*i.

Toronto, April  21.���The World  in  a  leading-editorial on the  "Great  Railway  Combine"    says:   . "The . second .'transcontinental Canadian line maybe divided  into three parts,- the  New  Ontario., the  Prairie aud the Mountain sections.     The  Canadian Pacific Imsaiready built ji large  portion of the Mountain section, and it is  going ahead with the balance as  fast as  it can lay the  rails.     The  New  Ontario  section will be completed  within   two or  three years. The Prairiesection is alone uncovered.    It would be an easy mutter to  build this gap and thereby unite the two  other sections and   form   another   transcontinental route.     What we say is this :  That the government   recognizing   these  great facts, should have built  these  sections itself, and thereby have established  a national highway from   Lake  Superior  to  Vancouver.   . The  Canadian  Pacific's  tentacles are reaching  out  further,  and  its grip has become tighter.    Corbin was  anxious to have a  franchise  for  a  competitive line, but the  Canadian  Pacific,  which has a monopoly on  the  northern  transcontinental route, intends to haA'e a  monopoly  of the  southern    route   also,  and    all     intruders   tire    Avarned    off.  Noav   it  is  the  combined forces  of the'  Canadian Pacfic and the Grand Trunk, a  combination that is  most  powerful  and  has the people of Canada entirely  at its  mercy.    A revolution will uoav  be necessary to slmke off this  monumental  octopus.

The  SeAfers.whicji Should be provided in Addition A hltd not been decided upon  by the engineer,, but he figured tliat  thqi-e Avould b,0 about 8000 feet of seAver  required.   - "     '  As to the cost of the se>vei's the engineer stated that the laying of 8-inch  pipe had cost the -cprpoj-ation about $1  pei' foot. Ho thought it Safe to estimate  . fcyfb-tlijrd'*-*, of���the��� sewers to bo put hi tit  this figure* iliid th<* liaianee tit $1.25 to  make ^lloAVahc'e for boulders to be encountered. In round ntiiiibers the eiv  gineer estimated the sewers to be laid' in  die original toWj.isi.te tit '$12,000, which  with the seAvers to be provitlfd in Addition A would bring the total up to  $15,000. This total will bo expected to  proAlde for tlie expenditures upon the  pipe for tlie outlet and for the pipe in  -Ward creek.  The proposed expenditure of $15,000  upon the electric light plant was. arrived  at by a series of estimates aud guesses.  In the first place, there was an estimate  from the city electrician tliat by an expenditure of $2500 the capacity of the  city's plant could be increased to (iOOO  lights. This expenditure would provide  among other things two additional 500-  light dynamoes, another water Avheel and  necessary alterations to the foundation  of the  present Avheels.  Alderman Fletcher observed that the  cost of laying the electric light flume  Avould cost about 20 per cent more than  the engineer's estimate.  The city engineer replied that if the  city had already paid out $8100 upon  construction account such would be the.  case.  City clerk Strachan reminded tlie council that as the  account "stood, there   was  ��� . Special lo The Tribune.

Winnipeg, April 24.���The Free Press  publishes the folloAving Ottawa despatch,  djited April 23: There is some misapprehension in connection with the Kettle  River vtilley raihvay bill. The report  that the bill has been AvithdrtiAvn is incorrect. The bill was not introduced  this session, so that it could not be with-  dniAvn. Mr. Bostock is also made to appear in a report in ji Toronto neAvspaper  as if he avjis acting as the sponsor of a  bill, Avhieh some raihvay companies* hiwe  been sible to induce him to abandon.' The  truth of the Avhole matter is that Mr.  Corbin, A\iio avjis promoting the bill last  year, could not come to OttJiwji in time,  this session to look after it, jis he is ��� engaged in" a lawsuit at Kossland, and therefore luis decided to leji\re the nnitter  silone until next year.

TJie all-impoi'tjaufc <|iies6ion  of a  market is   felt by the  gold miner  as well as  by  the farmer and  every, one who contributes toward the production of surplus  , commodities   for -export.-   The establishment  of a  Canadian   mint,  as has been  urged in Victoria  and Vancouuer, is not  regarded   as a settlement  of the matter,  for the,,gold would still have to be absorbed in the leading .commercial and industrial   nations of the world,'chiefly in  Britain   and   the   United   States.      The  business of buying the gold of the Yukon  lias naturally moved from anywhere mid  everywhere along the coast, and is tending  to centre  in  Dawson City, but the  gold     reaches   the    commercial   centres  through   the   American    mints   at   San  Francisco," Seattle, Philadelphia and elsewhere.   A large quantity is brought out  to escape the  royalty, and  this is generally taken  by the  miners  direct  to the  luiut at San  Francisco.    The rivalry of  coast cities for the Yukon trade has been  active  in every  line,  and both Victoria  and Vancouver'have looked withein*y on  the passing of the trade attendant on the  sale of the gold for currency.    One result  of this feeling has been the agitation for  a Canadian mint,  where the miner could  have  the assurance of an  official assay  and   the  actual   worth   of   his   gold  in  money. < To  the coast  cities a mint has  all V the attractiveness ;rf a locjttl  public.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin;, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^on, District.  of once, and   the cost  would   fall either  on the whole  people through'generosity  in the   purchase of gold   at the   mint  or  on the miners who  sold in Canada.    The  loss   would be added to   the rate  of exchange between New York and Canadian  cities.    Early Australian  coinage experienced the same difficulty.    There was no  opening   for   the   Australian   sovereign,  and it was sold in Now York and London  for inciting, of course at a, discount.    At  present the Australian mint is  a. branch'  of the Royal Mint, and its product has in  consequence  a market in London.    Such  an establishment is prevented in Canada  by our decimal currency.    The  tendency  of miners to  have  greater faith   in   the  official assay of San Francisco than iii the  private ' assay of  the  Canadian  bankers  and other purchasers might be allayed by  an official  assay office,  either Federal or  Provincial',. Avhicli Avould  certify  weight  and purity, leaving  price to be decided  by   competition.      The   crude    business  methods that led  to the loudest   complaints seeni to be passing away.  THE    RIVALRY    OF    THREE    TOWNS.  verton precints by either of three routes.  The least dangerous is to proceed straight  up the mountain sides and strike for Sandon. This involves considerable risk  from snowslides, but as the next best  route takes one through New Denver and  the other necessitates a swim of eight  miles to Rosebery j the first is the most  preferable route. Some people have even  waited for the return boat without expiring from ennui.  Kaslo is the next station past South  Fork on the K. <fc S. It has been situated  in the same place for several years and  can be niscovered by proceeding carefully  along the west shore of Kootenay lake.  Its principal features of interest are its  city council, the Hood and fire which it  had six yeai's ago anil the boom which it  will have "in the spring." It has a  closed Comique, a wide-open license law  and red curtains enough to shock the  modesty of a sphinx, its inhabitants, of  whieh there are quite a number, are  lineal descendents of Don Quixote and  Colonel Sellers.  _  D   ^^   o"   -.   nV      ���  ���' 'V     "-"frl      n      riiii   ,    inn-i     ofl ' nn"l    ^V '  ' n   '      1 ��a  ��n    r �� H     nrftf1   , I  m f" fl -f    ��j  "    Vn~   "lm       ff��-     ��ua"o(.      ^"d.iTc, D      IS ^     Dmo   **n      ff  '  "n  /ton**  ���'.rf."

American eagles were incited 5n reaching  'London and coined into sovereigns, and  the British gold was handled in the salue  way oh tliis side of the Atlautie. Now a  Jess expensive .means lias been found by  the financial institutions -which hold  British gold in the United States and  Arnerican gold in London* awaiting the  (leinaiid of a shipment. The great com-  jnerce between the two Countries and  the concentration of exchanges in Loiir  dofi make openings for the ii.se of the  coinage of both nations. But tinder existing conditions, there would be difficulty iii securing a use Or a market for  Canadian gold coinage. The amount  needed in the Dominion is small; and not  likely under existing Uiavs to expand, and  the market must be Britain and the  United States, If our neighbors would  make a .Canadian $10 coin legal tender  the same as tlieir "eagle," the matter  would be solved and the Canadian mint  could handle all tlie gold of the Yukon.  Such a law'would entail no 'loss*, on the  United States, and would give Canada  whatever satisfaction* attnTclies to the  ownership of a gold coinage. But it is  questionable if, in the most friendly  time, such legislation would be enacted,  even though supported by the supposition that it Avould secure tlie much-coveted "British gold." Canada has'made the  American "eagle" a legal tender, but in  that there is a decided advantage. We  have large.imports to pay for, and the  Anierican gold is used for the purpose,  but the Americans have no reciprocal  need of Canadian.gold in coins. If sent  there in large quantities-from a Canadian  mint it would be melted and recoined into "eagles," and the cost of that would  put it at a discount. The work of coining would have to be done twice instead  Sandon faystreak.

The compound loeomotiA'e is Avinning  laurels for itself just now by its remark-0  able work in hauling express trains on  some of the French railways. We haAre  not been accustomed to look to France  for record high speed performances, the  .trains in this country and in England  having been up to a -few years ago easily  first in this respect; Of late year-?, Iioav-  ever, a few of the French railroads, notably the Chemin de Per du Nord, haA'e  been paying particular attention to their  express train serA'ice, with the result that  the last named iioav holds the leading  place, running seAreral of its crack trains  at an aA*erage speed, including stops, of  over 54.5 miles jier hour.  Of the tAveuty-five expresses that are  booked to run at a speed of OA'er fifty  miles an hour, theie are six, including  one between Amiens and Calais Ville,  102i- miles, Avith a speed of betAveen 50  and 50.9 miles an hour; seven between  51.1 and 51.8 miles an hour; seA'en be-  tAveen 52.0 and 52.7 miles an hour; and  fiA'e haATing respective speeds of 54.5, 54.8,  55.3, 5G.3, and 57.7 miles an hour, including stops; the last named run.is made be-  Paris and Amiens, 81|-.v miles, AArhile the  average of 50.3 is maintained on a continuous run, Avithout stop, betAveen Paris  and St. Quentiu, a distance of 95*f miles.  What a splendid serA'ice this is Avill be  understood Avhen we bear in mind the  fact that the five fastest trains exceed  the speed of our oavu Empire State express, AA'hich is timed to run. from New-  York to Albany at the rate of 53.58 miles:-  an hour, thohgh they do not equal the  Atlantic City flier-on the Philadelphia  and Reading railroad. The trains are  not soVheaA*y as the Empire-State express, ���-. although .some remarkable Avork  has been done Avith trains of between 300  and 400  tons, running at speeds of from  40 to 50 miles an hour.  Perhaps the most interesting feature  of this express sei'A'ice is the fact that it  is Avorked by compound locomotives of  the four cylinder type. These engines  haA'e generous grate surface; a large total  heating surface, in some cases approaching 2000 square feet; and employ steam  pressure as high as 227 pounds to the  'square inch. The high pressure cylinders  are Avithin the frames, beneath the smoke  box, and a.re coupled to the forward pair  of driA'ers, Avhile the low pressure cylinders are outside the frames and connect  to the rear pair of drivers.  M. De Glenn, the designer of the locomotives, says that he adopted the compound system because, within the limits  of weight imposed, he can secure a more  powerful engine than is possible with the  simple system. This is due to the superior economy of compounding, Avhieh he  has found enables the same Aveight of  boiler to supply an engine of from 15 to  20 per  cent greater  poAver than it could  ; if the simple high pressure system Avere  I used.  i ^ *^ ir"* ISj vSa vSa vSs ���  mmm<  IB!-*  gnizin  B  An Incentive to Travel.

Interest iu Kootenay mining development  is increasing in London and so soon as  some of tlie mines of the Nelson and  Trail Creek districts become dividend  payers there will be no dearth of British'  capital for investment in Kootenay mining propositions.  An operation was performed yesterday  afternoon at the Kootenay .Lake general  hospital by Di's. Ball, Arthur and Doolittle. About two months ago an Italian  named Antonio Greco had his hand crush  ed by a rock while working on the I{ob-  son-l'entictoii railway. lie has since  been under treatment in the hospital and  yesterday it was decided to amputate  the hand at therA\*rist.
