Array TWO BY-LAWS  ABOUT READY  FOR   RATEPAYERS   ASSENT.  ���Pz-i  ov  Ul!l.y.,  "'<*.; Ld^  W  The city council held two sessions yesterday for the purpose of further considering the bylaws conferring franchises  upon the projected tramway and gas  and coke companies. The tramway bylaw was taken up at the afternoon session  and saving a few details, which will be  put into shape by a special committee  this morning, it is ready to be reported  complete at the session of the council to  bo held this afternoon.  Alderman Fletcher introduced an  amendment to make the operation of  the city engineer's supervision more  effective. It provided that no new lines  of railway or any extension of any existing line should be open for traffic until  the company secured a certificate from  the city engineer that such work had  been constructed to his satisfaction. This  was accepted by the solicitor for the-promoters upon provision being made for an  appeal from the decision of the city  engineer with respect to the same.  Another amendment decided upon was  the shortening of the interval during  which the company under certain conditions could suspend its service Avithout  forfeiting its franchise. As the clause  read it was stated that a suspension of  three months under these conditions  should not operate as a forfeiture.  Mayor Neelands thought that this interval of suspension should be cut doAvn  to ten days, but the members of the  council would not support his amendment. As a compromise it AA'as decided  to cut the interval down to tAvo months,  but mayor Neelands recorded himself as  dissenting. ���  Alderman Fletcher wanted a clause inserted AA'hich -would fix upon the company all liability for damages arising out  of accidents to any bridge crossed by the  traimvay company's cars. It Avas pointed  out that there AA'as a clause binding the  traniAvay company to indemnify the city  for all damage arising out of the construction or operation of the traniAA'ay,  and this, in the opinion of the other  members of the council, Avas considered  sufficient.  Alderman Fletcher had another amendment making the decision of the city engineer final in matters of minor imijort-  anee in which ho Avas gh'en' discretionary  power. This Avas assented to by the promoters' solicitor with' respect to seA'eral  of the clauses named, biit it Avas rendered  "necessary to- divide several sub-sections  itLorder that the amendment would not  be too sweeping, and this Avork Avas  I' assigned to*a special- committee who-Avill  meet this morning. \',  ..  The franchise for the gas and coke company was considered at the evening session of the council. - Dr. Doolittle did his  own talking before the couucil Avithout  bhe assistance of a lawyer and as a result  much better progress AA*as made.  The clause in the ���JbylaA\- regulating the  company's charge for the gas for lighting purposes was amended so that the  charges shall be controlled by the city  council and shall not in any case Avithout  the consent of the company be less than  $2 per. thousand-feet nor more than $3.  Alderman Beer wanted a provision inserted  in the bylaAv by Avhieh the  corporation of the  city would - have a share  in.the profits  of the . company after a  maxium profit was reached, but the suggestion was not entertained.   Instead an  amendment AA'as inserted to the effect  that Avhencver the city considered the  I company's   charges for gas excessive .a  I commission should have the poAvcr_to re-  lduclTt3le^lIaFgeirioT~~tlie same,  provi< led  ���such reductions permitted the company  [to earn a profit of fifteen per cent upon  [its gas plants operations.   The gas and  Icoke bylaAv aviII   be reported  complete  li'i'Om committee today.  tm��  TUESDAY MORNING,  MAY  10,   189!).  THE CANADIAN PACIFIC SCORED  A   POINT   YESTERDAY.

Want More Assistance From Britain.  .   , ��� Associated Press.  London, May 15.���The secretary of  [state for the colonies, Josepli Chamber-  jlain, had a conference today on the sub-  [ject of the proposed Pacific cable Avith  [baron Strathcona and Mount Royal, the  [high commissioner of Canada, and other  ���colonial agents. They presented cer-  Itain modifications' of the original pro-  J-yosals AA-hich Mr. Chamberlain promised  ���should receive the best consideration.  Special |.o The Tribune.  Rossland, May 15.���-It is reported on  the authority of Mr. Graves himself that  it has been practically decided to locate  the Knob Hill and Ironsides smelter on  the north fork of the Kettle river, ab.mt  a mile from Grand Forks. Several  sites have been under consideration.  A persistent rumor in Rossland points  to the discovery of a good body of ore in  the Virginia. It is said the Iron Mask  A'ein has been struck on the 300-foot level  shoAving five feet of $30 ore and has been  already drifted on for twenty-two feet.  No neAvs is available from the - management. ���When the stock Avas . rigged last  summer the Rossland public went for it  strong, bringing from 42 cents to $1.10.  They are still holding.it and the last sale  made Avas at 19 cents. Another assessment payable in July has been levied. So  that the discoA'ery of a good body of ore  AA'onld be very popular among a number  of Rossland citizens.  The Hon. D. W. Higgius is A'isiting his  son-in-laAV iu Rossland. He considers the  crisis at the Coast serious. Cotton has  apparently given Martin the alternative  of giving up Ludgate or the government.  Ore shipments from Rossland for the  Aveek ending today are likely to make a  record. This is the more satisfactory as  the mines are in shape to maintain a  regular output to tlie end of the year.  The great electric hoist of the War  Eagle has been so far a,.'disappointment.  Sometimes it -works and sometimes it  does not. This does not agree Avith  econoinicinining.  The use of a common source of poAver  for running machinery and electric lighting has very bad effects on the lighting.  The light in Rossland is irregular and  incandescent lamps last no time at all,  adding to the cost of an already expensive system.  Suoav fell in Rossland Sunday morning.  The AA'eather continues frightfully cold  for tho season.     ' .   - ��  Tliere is a decided" increase iu the inquiry for Rossland mining properties  from London. -The eight-hour.-law will  nothave any eifeet on the English market,  as they haA'e had it in operation for  many years in England, unless .trouble-is  the result of it. And no trouble AA'ill bo  , originated by tliose who have the heaviest  interests at stake. " -  There is- very little chance of the  Water <fc Light BylaAv passing. Tlie city  council is Aveak, and like most weak people  is becoming unpopular.  W. S. Jones has returned .to Rossland.  People avIio made accusations of any  criminal intention in his recent actions  havo beeu a little premature. He seems  to have .been Aveak and .careless, but at no  time in a position Avhere he' could not  render full account of hife dealings AA'ith.  the government. He has many friends and  it is a matter of general satisfaction that  one of Kootenay's oldest pioneers has not  fallen into disgrace.  Rambler-Cariboo jumped ten points  Saturday. The property has been recently examined by Bernard Macdonald  acting for a Montreal   syndicate. Thc_  company has also had an independent.report made recently AA'hich is to be published.    It is on the strength of this that  the public looks on the mines here as  gold-copper mines, although the copper  should be spelt with a small c.  A good story came to my ears the  other day. An English investor was  talking about British Columbia and said:  "Yes, I am interested in a company that  made some A'ery unfortunate investments  in AVest Australia., but thanks to our  British Columbia ventures we are going  to recoup ourseh'es." It is a fact that  hardly an English company operating in  British Columbia that is not carrying  some West Australian cripples.    .  The Windsor hotel in Montreal is at  present a hh-e of mining promoters.  They are there from all ends of fche earth.  A tremendous mining boom is expected  in Montreal. .  Mining enthusiasm has also invaded  NeAAr York, for many years the Worst city  iu the AArorld to take any mining proposition to. An extreme instance of this A\ras  afforded in the younger days of Trail  creek. Heinze tried to float the Le Roi  in NeAV York AA'hen lie Avas building his  smelter and failed. At the same time  money AA'as forthcoming plentifully for  his smelter, AA'hich depended on an oi'e  contract Avith the mine. What was the  smelter /worth if the mine AA'as no good?  But the one AA'as industrial and the other  mining and that AA'as enough for the  Ncav York iiiA'estor.  nnd  Mr.  Mr.  the  the recent heaA'y buying has taken place  Bernard Macdonald has been instrumental iii making some big deals in this  coUUtry, It Avas largely on his advice*:  that the B. A. C. purchased the No. I,  relatively speaking their best investment.  He also examined the Lie Roi and the Republic when the control of the latter \v~as  transferred to Montreal. He was not al*  Avays the big mining nian he is today.  Tlie first day's Avork he eA*^er did uhder-  ground was uuder an old Toad Mountain  pioneer, 'ThonMs Siuirl. Whittaker  Wright, the Wizard of the City o��  London, Avas another old friend of  Macdonald's. Metaphorically at least  they .packed their blankets through the  Rocky Mountains together hi. early days.  Whittaker Wright's has been a very  singular career. He is the modern instance of Mark Twain's "Yankee at the  court of King Arthur." His decidedly  American financial hlethods have never  been popular Avith conservative financiers, but he has beaten the game aud  beaten it AA'orse than any man of late  years. It Avill probably never be known,  accurately Iioav near the Avhole combination was to destruction a year ago. But  assuredly the British America Corporation and the London and Globe came very  hear a smash. The Le Roi mine saved  them, and it is said that unless the Bank  of Montreal had come to tho assistance of  the Le Roi deal it Avould neA'er haA'e been  made.  The boom in copper has had a tonic effect on Rossland mines and stocks, and  yet tlie amount of copper produced is so  small that the increase in price has had  hardly any appreciable effect ou the net  earnings of mine and smelter.     HoAveA'er  Kaslo.  Kaslo, May 15.���The Duncan City  toAA'nsite is noAA' oil the -market- and lots  are commencing to sell. W. N.

There is A'ery little yet to be paid  on   the  building, as most of  the money  has been forthcoming through  the liberality of friends  in England principally.  The  building  itself was planned  by G.  Curtis of Nelson, M. McLean of this town  being   the  contractor.    Iu   architecture  and  general  finish  the church   is easily  foremost in  the  Slocan.

Greenill, a mining  broker of Ymir.    He Avas  last seen  on  Saturday night, and  yesterday his  cap  AA'as picked upon the Salmon m-cr bridge.  Diligent search has been made by captain  Forrester  and   many friends  along the  banks of the river, as it is supposed  he  fell oft' the bridge OAving to  the  intense  darkness aud   A\*as  swept  aAvay  by the  current. Today the ri\**er isbeing dynamited^ under the instructions of captain Forrester, and  it  is just possible  the body  may be recovered by eA'cning.    The  Salmon river bridge has no railings  of any  kind, and it is most unsafe for pedestrians  on dark  nights, as  there are no lights  to the bridge, AA'hich is the only source of  egress from the toAvn to the mines.    J. N.  Greenill   Avas  a most esteemed  English  gentleman, AA'hohadtraA'ellcd much, principally in South Africa, and .had only recently .started  as a mining  broker.

Mr. justice Walkem   yesterday morning  granted  an  injunction    restraining  the Kaslo it Lardo-Duncan Raihvay Company from interfering AA'ith the workmen  of the plaintiffs, or from trespassing  upon the right-of-way  of the  plaintiffs  in  the Duncan City pass.     This is a similai  injunction to the one  granted last  Monday by judge Forin.    The  result  of the  injunctions is that the Duncan City pass  is   tied   up,  both   companies being pre-  A'cnted  from  Avorking in the pass  until  the 30th  of May, or  until  a motion  is  made  by  either side to dissolve  the injunctions.    In support of the application  for   the   injunction   the  ArroAvhead   &  Kootenay company put in affidavits from  engineers Perry and Doucet,in AA'hich they  stated that the Duncan City pass  AA'as a  dry pass, and  that there  Avas  sufficient  room in the pass for four standard gauge  tracks, and that the Kaslo & Lardo-Duncan company had zig-zaged  through the  pass at an increased  cost for no other,-  apparent purpose than the preA'euting of  any other raihvay from locating a line of  raihvaythrough it.

The   OAvners   of   the  -.  mines^ are fairly-entitled to a  return on  . the capital hwested: the miners" are  fairly entitled to wages that. AA'ill leave  them something OA'er and -above living'  expenses;   and C the   business  men' av ho  "have, given credit ,to both the mine  OAvners and the miners when .in need of  assistance would, .be unfairly treated if  their property AA'as unduly depreciated  through a shut doAvn  of the mines.    It  ^caii "also be .said, like conditions do  not'exist in,the different camps in Kootenay. A.rate. of AA'ages that AA'oukl be  fair in Slocan might not bo fair in Rossland.   Therefore, The Tribune believes  ��� that the mine OAvners and miners should  meet and adjust the rate of AA'ages for  Y_tlieir -respectiAie campb and    districts..  Nelson is in a position to take the  lead  .  on these lines.  So FAR, no single "member of the Hume  Campaign Committee AA'ill admit having  recommended any of tlie appointments  recently made, or about to be made, to  office in Nelson. .More. Tliey condemn  the appointments. The question then  arises, has the honorable minister of  mines been misled by enemies clothed in  the garb of friends ?  The question might be a.sked the honorable minister or mines, hoaa' tliat he is  in Nelson, if it is the policy of the gov-  el'iHnentof AvhichJie is a member to go  outside the party that elected them to  office foi* ineii to fill tlie A-urious offices of  honor aud,femoluinent with ill tlie gift of  the government? This is a question of  practical .politics; not one of political  economy, and a niember of a governmenti  should be able to answer it.  ^ ^ :   "Nelson wants several things  that require'a large expenditure of money.

The" appetite' of'a great'monopolistic  corporation, Avhieh' lias been fed by the  public, groAA*s by Avhat it feeds on. It is  estimated that"the C.P.R. has received',  aid from Canadian governments, in cash  and lands, to the 'value of more than a  hundred million dollars. But its appetite  is more ravenous than eArer. Accustomed  to get easily Avhat it Avants, the C.P.R.  has come to regard public aid not as a  favor, but as a right; and it leA-ies tribute  not alone on tlie Dominion and provincial governments, but upon" insignificant  municipalities.  Such grievances as those recently set  forth by the people of the little toAvns of  Moyie and Grand-..Forks,' in- Southern-  British Columbia, reveal the ugly, grasping spirit of the great raihvay monopoly.  Moyie Avas on the sui'A7eyed line of the.  Crow's Nest Pass railway, but the C.P.R.  authorities ran the road' through the  toA\'n and built a station t\\ro or three  miles- aAvay because* the Moyie people  Avould not, at* the'demand of the company's solicitor, agree to giA'e the C.P.R.  hall' the entire tOAviisite, free' right of  Avay for side-tracks and a depot site. It  mattered not that many of the lots demanded by the C.P.R. had been sold, and  it Avould be impossible, Avithout much  litigation",' to accede'to- its-*demands." An  offer of' freeriglit of way,' side-track'and  depot sites, together Avith ten acres of  toAvnsite, Avas rejected Avith scorn. The  company had to have its price, and because, the price Avas not forthcoming, it.  is doing WliatMfc can to - crush the poor  little toAvn of ^'Moyie.* ^      y \\  L' The experience of Grand Forks is similar. Ono-third of the unsold .land in the  tOAvn Avas domaiidcd.by the CP.R. as the  price of running the new line to that  point���or, more correctly, the Grand  Forks people Avere * threatened Avith the  diversion of the line unless they agreed  to the. company's terms. Tliey .would  not, and the line was diverted. Other  mining settlements' are said to haAre been  "held up" in the same way, and meekly  paid the price rather' than incur theL  threatened penalty.  Wherein do these methods differ from  tlioseof the higlnvay robber, and black-  "niailer? IL would be satisfactory to  knoAV that these acts of petty tyranny  and extortion, so unworthy of a great  corporation such as the C.P.R., Avere the  acts of minor officials aud Avere not'Sanctioned at headquarters; but it is to be  .feared-that no such-.excuse can be oiier-  ed, for Ave are told 'itlikt ��\vlipn,ik deputation from Graud FqiOcs- IaW .jbjte'ite eoin-  |^plaitit*4>0f*3re^a=A?er*yf=M  eOmp^hyi he> iasked��'> tjiein" Avhether^'the  peopl&lof- Graiid'Forlcs had hot favored  the' Kettle Galley railway project, and  that Avhen they*' said they had, because^  they desired' railway competition, he dismissed tlieiii Avith the remark that tliey  richly 'd0servect the treatiiient of Avhicli  they cQiniilaiued.  JifbnopQly Seldom1 fails to develqn this  tyranhicalj" selfish; spirit Ayjiicli has been  slioAvu by the C.P.R, iuanitgeni^t iii British Coliinibia;. It spoils good men. It is  in'danger of spoiling tli& men atthq head  Of the GTM? They should be Saved from  its blightirii**; powei8; and, incidentally,  the people of the AVest,; should* if possible,  also be saved from its blighting ppAY-er.  Ah independent railway commission, if  clothed Avith suftieierii*! authority', could  do much to preA'ent such contemptible  acts of injustice and oppression as those  of Avhieh the people of Grand Forks and  Moyie complain. A raihvay commission  is the second-best way of guaranteeing  fair treatment in transportation.' THe-  best Avay is'the way Of; government -ownership., of transportation" facilities.  The Filipinos Have -i'WbriderftuY Nerve;,*  The AA^ouderful nerve of the Filipinos is  described in a letter from sergeant Frank  IL Turton, of Company VK, First California regiment; at Manila."

Many of fche soldiers, deeply  touched by their aAvful sufferings used  their own "lirst-aid packets" to stop fclie  flow of blood and bandage tlieir horrible  Avounds.   The Cigar Smoker.  When you see a man grip a cigar between his teeth and hold it fast, careless  of whether it burns or not, you can set  him doAvn as an aggressive, calculating  and exacting individual. ��� If a man  smokes a cigar deliberately, just enough  to keep it lighted, and delights in taking  it from his mouth and watching the blue  smoke from it curl upward, ho is likely to  be an easy going man, good na'turcd and  honest. There is another f el Ioav avIio  smokes intermittently, takes a puff and  then rests and fumbles his cigar about.  He is apt to haA'e little decision of character and to be easily affected by circumstances. A man may be nervous and  ���fumble, his cigar a good bit, and in this  eA'ent he is a would-be savcII, vain and  frivolous. He invariably tilts his cigar  upAvard, Avhile a sensible, leA^el-headed  felloAV Avill hold it straight out from the  mouth. When you see a man�� cheAving  upon an unlighted cigar and tAvisting it  about, he is nervous, but of great tenacity. A man aa*1io cannot keep his cigar  .alight has a Avhole souled disposition.  He had a li\Tely nature, is a hail felloAV  avoII met, glib or tongue and usually a  good story teller.  Yesterday's Ball Games.  Associated Press.  Baltimore, 5; Ncav York, 3.
