 LOCAL AND MINING NEWS FROM  ADJACENT   TOWNS   AND CAMPS.  Special to The Tribune.  Ymir, May 12.���The honorable the minister of mines was waited upon yesterday  afternoon   by   a   deputation   from   tlie  board of trade, when the whole  question,  of roads aud trails for Ymir  was again  threshed out and  thoroughly discussed.  Mr. Hume promised  that at least' $8000  should   be  spent   in   Ymir   camp.    The  road   up   Wild   Horse   and    Porcupine  creeks would be the first to be opened up  and  other   mining   centers  would  have  every consideration.    A government surveyor would be sent out at  once  to survey these two  roads and  also to report  upon  other  roads  and   trails.    He  was  also interviewed  by  the school trustees  re the appropriation of the $1000 for tlie  schoolhouse, and stated that the government would do their best  to  hold same  over  pending  the   transfer   of   the   lot  wliich vice-president Shields in his last  letter  said   would  be  effected any  day  * now; aud  as  soon  as  it is the building  could   be   started   at   once,  for  a  new  schoolhouse is  badly needed, the classes  now   being   held    iu   the   Presbyterian  church.    The Hon. J. Fred Hume, in company   with   John McLeod  (one   of   the  school   trustees)   walked   over   and   inspected the lot in Cherry street, directed  by   the   owners   of   the   townsite,   and  thought  the positional   very desirable  one.    In   the   afternoon he  was  shown  over the gaol by captain Forrester.    The  miners' union did not send a deputation  to   the   minitter of  mines  because  the  eight-hour, law is  now to  be  enforced,  as evidently he had tried  to meet their  views.    Taken  as a  whole, the visit  of  the representative of the district to Ymir  was a satisfactory one, because tlie honorable gentleman AA'as most profuse in his  promises  for the welfare of this camp,  even  more  so  than  during his election  campaign. . Probably he was  quaking in  his   shoes   and  fully expected  that  his  Ymir   constituents   were   going  to call  upon him to resign* and make room for a  better   maij.     However,  this  time   the  .crisis was staved off with promises.    He  proposes  td return  to tlie  camp  again  shortly and1-go into the mining affairs of  the district.  The offer of the Semlin government to  provide a million dollars for the Pacific  cable, is a farce, something similar to the  offer of sir Gordon Sprigg, premier of the  colony of the Cape of Good Hope, South  Africa, during the jubilee year to add an  ironclad to! the British navy. -If the  ' treasury of tlie British" Columbia government were overflowing, which it is not,  their first duty Avould be* to open up the  luiiierakweiiltli 6f..the>conntry by~makihg  trails, roads,' bridges, etc., and advertising its mines. ���  Phil White is down from- the Wilcox,  "Avhere large 'development operations are,  going-on,  and  says-things look  better  than e\rer.

DAILY NEWSPAPERS ARE HELD UP  AND  ROBBED  BY  THE   C.P.R.  The Miner, very properly, finds fault  Avith the press dispatches furnished by  the Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company,  and insinuates that all Canadian news is  suppressed in the expectation of compelling the ucAVspapers to resort to  specials, in order that the company's  revenues may be swelled.

Hezlett, of Royal  Port Rush club, avIio defeated Miss  Magill of the County Down club.  The promoters of the local tramway  Avere not soaa'cII pleased Avith their fcram-  way byhiAV Avhen it came out of committee last evening as they Avere when it  AA'as committed. The cause of their  annoyance is tliat alderman Fletcher has  inserted ti provision in the bylaAV prohibiting the tramway company from-disposing of poAver for any purpose, and  restricting their own use of pOAA'er received to tlie uses of operating their tramway and concerns incidental thereto.  The amendment also set out that it should  be distinctly specified that the traniAA'ay  company should not permit any company  supplying them Avith poAver to make use  of the tramway connections for supplying poAver to any other persons.  For some time there haA'e been  rumors  on the street to the effect that there AA'as  Ian arrangement betAveen  the  promoters;  of the traniAA'ay scheme and the Bonnington Falls poAver company, by  AA'hich the  poAver company furnishing poAver  to the  traniAA'ay.    company'..at    adA'antageous  rates, the poAA'er company should be permitted to  use  its connection   Avith the  traimvay   eonqaauy    for    getting   into  Nelson, AA'hich it could not  do,'. otherAvise"  except under a municipal charter.    The  amendment moA-*ed by alderman Fletcher  was   doubtless framed  AA'ith a  vieAv to,  ���.prevent   any   such   arrangement   being  carried out, and the discomfiture sho'wii  by the promoters and their solicitor OA'er  the   introduction    of   "the   amendment  shoAA'ed that they attached great importance to an open bylaAV  without  any  restrictions as to the sale of'power.  W. A. Macdonald's first objection to  the amendment Avas that the traimvay  company had been obliged to contract  Avith the Bonnington Falls company for  more poAver than, it Avould require. He  contended thtit, the traniAA'ay company  should htiA'e the privilege of selling poAA'et"  to any one that Avould use it.  . Alderman Fletcher, in reply, said that  he AA'as under the impression that the  council AA'as dealing AA'ith a franchise for  a street raihvay and -not for a poAver  company. If the council AA'as acting under a misapprehension the sooner it Avas  cleared up the better.- -        '    -        ,     -  Mayor Neelands confirmed this, saying-  that the council ueA'er contemplated that  the company should go into the business  of supplyingupoA\;er.  Alderman 'Fletcher added tluit the  traniAA'ay company AA'tis bringing in a  company AA'hich AA'onld make a business of  supplying poAver, and the city council proposed that it should control the situation  and not the traimvay orL poAver company,  if the ,trann\'ay company had the right  ,to supply poAver there Avould be no limit  to its operations.  Alderman Thomson said that he Avould  not be in faA'or of ailoAving the company  to sell any poAver AvhateA'or.  Mayor-Neelands said that there aa*;is no  use in AA'asting time OA'er the matter as he  AA*as coiiA'inced that the council AA'onld not  consent to any such concession. lie  secdiided" the aniciidiiient of aldei'iutijl  jyet&lier's ?tnd it Avas, carried Avithout  dissent.  The next amendment of iniporta iice  AA'as that proposed by alderman Beer.  He���sa id=tha'*b=thoi- c-=Ava,s=a.^f ee I i n g=tl uiit=  somethiug should be done by the council  to secure a five-cent fare, otherAVise the  ratepayers .would vote against the by-  laAA'. He thought that the council should  stipulate tluit Avllen tlie popuhition of  Nelson reached 12,000, fares on the traniAA'ay should be reduced to five cents for  adults and M cents for scliool chiklrcn,  add also that AvJieii the profits earned  enabled the trtuuAA'iiy company to pay 15  per cent upou its. "original iiiA'cstnient,  the city should be entitled to one per  cent, and if this occurred before the city's  population reached .1.2,000 the ftircs should  bo reduced .as aboA'e.  Alderman McKillop said that if such a  resolution AA'as passed it avoiiIU. be in-  opertitive, tis the compaiiy would take  care to provide that its profits Avould not  exceed the amount set by the council.  Alderman Fletcher suggested that the  best Avay for the city to get at the company's profits AA'as to impose a tax of so  much upon each car. The city avou Id  never get a bean under the terms of the  amendment drafted by alderman Beer,  The council deferred action upon this  amendincnt till Monday afternoon.  The council got into a tangle over tlie  question of the serA'ice the traimvay company should giA'e, and tis the council had  no information as to AA'here the company  proposed to build the line, nor the extent  nor nature of it, a-rather meaningless  conclusion avjis arrived at.  Mayor   Neelands   thought   that   there  should be a service of three cars per hour  oA'er the city  portion of the  company's,  system.  Alderman Thomson thought that the  city should be content Avitli a .tAvico-an-  hqur service.  .W. A. Macdonald said that the. promoters avou Id'not accept any such condition iu the bylaw.  that  3Iayor Neelands in reply said  the question of serA'ice AA'as left open it  AA'onld mean that Nelson Avould have a  tram line Avith no service. If the company AA'as permitted to run only such a  serA'ice a.s Avould pay from the start, and  keep all others out, the company should  be required to pay for its franchise as it  would be A'onturing nothing.  It Avas finally decided to oblige the  company to run fifteen cars over its  Avhole system each day, but at the suggestion of the promoters' solicitor a rider  AA'as added that the obligation should extend only to such portions of the company's system as may be built Avithin  the first tAvo years after the granting of  the franchise.     .  Alderman Fletcher secured a further  amendment to the clause, Avhieh gave the  company the right to all earth taken out  of the city streets in grading. As the  clause read the company had the right  to all such material not "then" required  by the city. This, hoAvever, did not suit  alderman Fletcher, and he had the Avord  "then" taken out so that the traniAA'ay  company can only haA'e such material as  the council is Avilling to give them.  A further amendment Avas made requiring the company to locate its car  sheds, offices and general buildings AA'ith-  iu the city limits, so that AA'hen the taxation'exemption period expires there will  be something for the city assessor to  leA'y taxes upon.  Aldermen Fletcher also endeavored to  have an amendment inserted so that the  city council would be a'court qf last resort in appeals from the decision of the  city engineer .upon matters of detail  arising out of the construction and operation of the road, but no action Avas  taken in the matter.

Associated Press.  Washington, May 12 ���Due action has  been taken by the Washington officials  of the semi-official declaration from London -respecting the chances for the conclusion of a treaty that Avill settle all  questions at issue betAveen the United  States and Canada. All that ean be said  is that the administration Avill be extremely gratified if sir Julian Pauncefote  returns to the United States Avith neAV  instructions that Avill meet the difficulties AA'hich baffled the first commission,  for a.s matters stand, it is realized that  nothing can be expected to result from a further meeting of the  commission. The statement that the negotiations are to be deferred until the  return of sir Julian Pauncefote to Washington is regarded as significant. It confirms fully the original statement that  the commission cannot meet on August  2nd, for the ambassador's return to this  country Avas fixed for next autumn.

Tlie Moore eight-hour law, which goes  into effect on .Time 15th,  is attracting a  good  deal'of attention* in Colorado just  now, aiid  is the subject of much discus^-  sion.   We i?hd, by enquiry among mine  owners  and  operators,  both  great and  small, that there  is a willingness to conform to the iieAV law'and pay the present  scale.    Miners in general hold some very  pronounced, opinions  that $3 per day. is.  both fair to miner and mine owner and  that  eight hours  work underground'is  best for all concerned.   This fact is recognized  by   successful   mine'-managers in.  'o charge of large payrolls, who appreciate,  the fact that  the payrollis the-.greatest  item   of expense  aiid that many secrets  are hidden  in it, and consequently it is  very expensive to have dissatisfied .men  employed.    In 1893, wheir.siiyer and*lead  slumped thirty per ceiit,the scale was reduced to $2.50 for underground men, and  in this way tlie erroneous impression has  gone out that Leadville is a $2.50 camp.  The fact,of the matter is, that now,  out of 3000?men employed 'in- Leadville  mines; not 300 men are working for $2.50.  Tliis proves that experienced men appreciate the fact that the cheapest labor is  the dearest, and have voluntarily advanced the scale.

Toronto Star.  The lietion of British 0oiimibia in offer;  iiig to bear one-niiith of the cost of the  Pacific cable, iu addition to its share of  the Dominion burden, is in striking contrast to the British government's Weakness in periiiitting existing interests to  iiiftiienee it to-throw down tlie project;  Canada, British Columbia and Australia  are Avilling to Shoulder the burden; Britain shirks 'it.;. Imperialism" liUiy be sti*ong  in Britain, biit the'pull, of the Eastern  Extension cable people seems to be  stronger. Britain aa as ready enough to  pat Canada on the back foi- inaugurating  the preferential tariff policy, but practical sympathy with closer imperial unity  is something more substantial than the  empty gratitude aiid gush Avhieh is all  the British authorities seem willing to  give. They were asked to accord the  colonies a preference in the new A\rine  tariff and refused; theil^they backed Out  of the compaiiy Ayliich would be formed  of Britain, Canada aiad Australia tp lay  and operate the cable. If, this;is the  strength of the sentiment in Britain for  closer relations, it will not'take long to  chill the feeling in Canada. However,  the* action of the eiltei-pfisiiig Pacific  province may put the home government  to shame and induce it to reconsider its  decision.  Foster is a Great Debater.  Toronto Telegram.  Fine in spirit, broad, generous and comprehensive are the terms Avhieh best describe the speech of Hon. Geo. E. Foster in  reply to the budget speechof Hon: W. S.  Fielding. The Canadian parliament has  its faults,  but  no  narroAv partisanship  Is now prepared -to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^on. District.  prevents the cheerful and unanimous recognition of Mr. Foster's great ability.  It may be that the parliamentary effect  of Mr. Foster's speech Avill greatly exceed  its political effect in the country. Tliat  is not Mr. Foster's fault. The'weather  conditions are unfavorable. Mr. Foster  has no chance to tickle the soil of public  opinion Avith his genius and watch it  laugh Avith a harvest of Tory votes. The  time of reaping-will come in a season of  brighter days and better luck for the  Conservative .party.  MISERY   OF   THE   KLONDIKE.

"In all  my experience in mining, regions  aud on the frontiers of civilization I have  knOAA'ii  nothing quite  so pitiful  as  the  poverty and homesickness of hundreds of  men and some Avomen in DaAvson all this  long, hard'Avinter.

People went out of doors in  the cold and some got out of bed solely  to get a glimpse of old Sol, even if. he did  look very-little  like his oavu blazing, majestic self.

A private telegram received in Nelson  last evening intimated that Messrs. Hillyer & Co. had received the contract for  the erection of the Bank of Montreal's  building in this city. Whether or not  the information was correct could not be  ascertained. The tenders were opened  yesterday at 'Vancouver, but no alterations were made in the bids of the local  tenderers, which in the first instance  were several thousand dollars higher  than the tender received from Victoria.  The city council has decided to call for  tenders for the sewer pipe which it is  proposed to lay in the event of tlie $L5,-  000 by-law for sewer purposes being assented to by the ratepayers. The city  engineer will be asked to estimate the  amount of pipe which the city will  require. '     .  City engineer .McCulloch has received  instructions to alter the grade of Vornon  street, between Ward and Hall streets, so  as to improve the grade of Josephine  street, between Baker and Vernon streets.  Necessary repairs to Vernon street between the same cross streets will also be  made.  The local fire insurance agents have  asked the board of underwriters for the  province to appoint au inspector who  shall reside in Kootenay. As matters  stand at present the rating of the cities  of Kootenay is very unsatisfactory, it  being pointed out that two or three  different ratings have been given for  identical buildings in Nelson. The local  insurance men also desire to have the  rating of the risks in the city revised.  Tlieir request for a resident inspector has  been endorsed by the city council.  The following, is the result of the games  played m the billiard tournament at the  Hume hotel last night: English billiards,  James Neelands beat R. Brawn, 100 to 87 ;  H. W. R. Moore beat D. L.
