 VOTE AGAINST THE tOAN BYLAWS  FOE  THE  FOLLOWING REASONS.  the  are  ave  Every assessed owner of real estate in  the City of Nelson has the right to vote  on Monday; tlie right is not limited to  British subjects, as it is at elections for  mayor and aldermen. Several of  largo owners of property in Nelson  citizens of the United States ; they 1  the right to vote.  Every assessed owner resident in   Nelson   should   vote, and   vote according to  his   or   her best   judgment.      The   city  council ask  that the owners  of  real  estate  iu   Nelson  sliall  authori/.e them to  borrow $70,000, to be expended on public  works.    The  council   have   the   right to  ask   for   the  money, and   the  owners of  property have the right to  ask   how the  money is   to be expended.    The  council  have asked for tlie money, but they have  refused to state how the money is to be  expended.     In plain words,   the council  ask  the  property owners to go it blind.  First. They want $10,000 with which to  erect a city hall, and have prepared plans  for a building that  will  cost  $20,000  to  erect and  furnish.     Tlie  city  now  has  buildings in every way adequate for all  tiie business tliat the city is transacting.  Successful business men do uot tear down  - buildings merely to build new ones; they  .wait until their business outgrows their  premises,  theu  build  accordingly.    Ten  thousand  dollars   expended   on  a  civic  building would be a "sop" to a few work-  ingmen for  a few mouths,  but of   no  direct benefit to the  city.     Put a cross  mark opposite  tlie  Avoid  "NO"  on  the  ballot paper.  Second. The council want $30,000 to  expend on extending the water system.  The present system lias cost $40,000, and  the average citizen would like to know  how the $30,000 in addition is to be expended, and if its expenditure will result  in giving the city an adequate aud permanent supply of water. Surely this is  nob asking anything unreasonable, but  the council absolutely refuse to make any  statement as to how the money is to be.  expended. Under such circumstances,  you-should-place a cross mark opposite  the word "NO" on the ballot paper.  Third. Fifteen thousand dollars is the  sum the council want to use in patching  up the electric, light plant. This is a  good-sized sum to use in patching up a  plant that originally cost $35,400. It is  understood that $1200 of the $15,000  haA-ebeen promised to the OAvners of a  piece of overfloAved  land  iu the Hoover  THE  PHILLIPS MURDER  WILL   GO   TO   TRIAL.

A bylaw has been introduced in the  city council for the purpose of establishing a fire limits in the town. It is proposed to make the fire limit bounded by  Third and Fifth streets on the east and  and Avest, the lake front on the north,  iind half way between A find R aA'enues  on the south. It is thought that the  time is how opportune for taking this  step and it Avill haA'e the effect of stopping all the little shacks and temporary  shops being erected in the business portion of the town.  The Aveatlier is very warm and the  snow is coming off the hills very fast.

Half ii do*/en  American clerks, witll the rolls of the  Cuban army, sat about a long table at  the headquarters of the Eighth regiment.  A bag of gold Avas displayed, but there  Avere no applications for a share of it.  Whatever difficulties may present  theniseh'es at other mines in the Nelson  district, when the eight-hour law conies  into operation, there is not much likelihood of any friction at the Athabasca  mine. This satisfactory condition of affairs is very largely due to a conference  held Friday eA'cning betAveen the Athabasca miners and E. Nelson Fell, local  manager for the company operating the.  property.  At this conference Mr. Fell stated, tliat  while he could not undertake to pay$_.50  for  eight-hour  shifts, he A\rould agree, in  vieAV of the reductions Avhieh the change  Avould make in the miners' Avage-earning  capacity,   to   make   concessions   in  the  company's  charges  for  board.    This he  did not AA'ish to be taken as a precedent  to be used in dickering aa-th other  companies.    WhatYhe-proposed'to do  Avas  merely to give the men Avorking for the  company the advantage of the company's  situation, iu being close to  the point of  supply,   AA'hich  enabled it,  through the  use of the company's  teams  engaged in  hauling  concentrates, to  lay provisions  doAvn at the mine at a much cheaper cost  than   several   other    companies    could.  Under the present system, Avorking ten-  hour   shifts   for   $3.50,   the   company's |  charge  for  board- Avas $7 per AA'eek, and  in vieAV of the  reduction  iu the   men's  Avage-earniug capacity under the eight-  hour amendment he proposed  to  reduce  the charge to  $5.50  per-Aveek.    This reduction, he said, Avould be  conditional of  course, upon    sufficient    men     offering  for employment to maintain a force equal  to that at present on the company's payroll, and should the number of meu employed at the mine fall beloAV  fifty the  rate of boai'd.would -have to be revised as  the smaller number of men could not be  boarded as economically as the larger.  This compromise, lie pointed out, AA'hen  considered in regard;to tlie net result to  the miners, Avould come Avithin $27per  "_jve<^.?y^iv$^  "o   -   ?.J?B fttf-^oMfSP M-n   .��    "    fl ���.

Whit Monday,  the great bank holiday in the  old   country, tlie day of rejoicing for the democrat,  the day of  abhorrence   for   the   bloated  aristocrat,    passed   by   here   unnoticed.  Strange are the excuses found by various  nations for a day's rest and general "tear."  In    old'effete-Europe  democracy   celebrates on the first of May, its festival of  peace and brotherhood.    In America, the  land of freedom and fraternity, on that  day the sons of liberty froth up into processions,   receptions,   parades and   banquets in honor of the great and  glorious  victory of Manila (Avherein  the  helpless,  obsolete, Avooden ships of Spain were battered to pieces by modern ironclads) and  the president telegraphs  hysterically to  admiral DeAvey, describing the destruction of the Spanish fleet at Cavite as a  brilliant achieA'ement, Avhicli Avill "live in  the annals of the ���/world's.heroic deeds."

In the end I   was  driven^  in the officer's hired hack back to thecity  and   immured  in   the   military   prison  there for some four or fiA'e hours.

Alger and those  identified  with him   iu  $3,000,000 pulp and paper mills on the St.  Maurice river at Grand Mere Falls is being followed by several New York, Chicago and  Boston  capitalists.    One  syndicate, headed by Mr. MeMullen of, Emerson,  McMullen  &  Co.,   blinkers  of New  York,  has been  incorporated in  Canada  under the name and title of the-Jacques  Cartier Power Company, to furjiish  electric light and motive power to the city of  Quebec in opposition to the existing electric company.    It has already developed  existing water powers at the famous falls  of the Jacques Cartier. river on the: 1 ine  of the Quebec and Lake St. John "railway.  American capital hits also found its way  in large blocks  into the  capital stock of  the existing electric light and power company of Quebec, which  utilizes the famous Falls  of Montinoreiici  to  illuminate,  the streets aud private residences, of-the ���  city, to operate the street railway of the  old French capital,  and is now about to  replace steam by electricity as the. motive  power, "...of   its   railway   trains   between  Quebec,  Mohmoreuci and  Ste.

A rich Englishman, thinkingtogetat the  bottom of the labor troubles in his cotui;  try, wont out to try his hand among the  common Avorkingnien of London. He had  reckoned on steady work and steady  wages. He tried faithfully and tells liis  experience as follows: "Nobody wants  me on this wide earth! Absolutely  nothing that is in demand in the labor  market can I supply." Then he Avent to  moralizing and'said': "This seems to dispose forever of the lie thrtt the best way  to make a man work is to let him stan'e.  The" shorter iny commons the longer my  loafing rests.. I am debauched into vagabondage, audi soon cease to look for a  job. Self-respect, I find, is still but the  eiecticism of the respect of, others. With  no.friendly eye upon him, the runner will  soon run his race. It is so plain that nobody in all multidinous London cares  whether-I get work or fail to get it that  I cease ;to care on my own account. My  chief concern is how to glide through the  day with the smallest possible expenditure of .toil, either of body or mind."  That, pretty nearly tells the story of  the poor in this modern world. They  are being left to .drift into vagabondage;  no one  is very much interested in their  .troubles. It. looks' as though there ought  to be a labor Salvation Army started, to  . find, work for those who want work and  icannot get it,. to bind, up the broken  hearts of disappointed laboz*ei's and to  hold up the courage of the despairing until a way can be opened for them to earn  their  bread.    It is a new hint,  too,  to  ��� those engaged in the education of (the.  youngr^The-ed^fca-jied: inau .^en^qiit aiicl:  Mil^Ka^k^lkl^^  _$0tif_8ij^ei_^^  !S^'Ia_^wia^t^l-a^^fe-' ift^etfiiaiM^  Tluit Yis Hioi/the-s best*. kiiKly of/:au vecljiea^;  his eyes and his hands had been so neglected that he was without the capacity  to earn his bread. There are. many such  all around us, even in practical America,  and it should not be so. Matter..* we believe, aie worse than they will be twenty-five years hence. As labor-saving  machinery has caught up one industry  after another, pushing workiugmen froin  their places, neither in our schools, nor in  the training outside the school- have men  sought enough to make a, readjustment  to meet the new conditions.  After awhile all children will be trained to do well some needed thing that this  world will want. At present a broad  charity should possess all who are interested in their native land,to try to see that  work shall be given those who need it,  for when self-respect dies, as it quickly  does when a person becomes dependent,  then in a little while love of country-  starves, and the embittered soul loses  faitli alike in God and man, and is ready  for anything that promises to furnish for  him a diversion from his own thoughts.  The white's man's burden is just as  heavy at home as it is in foreign lands,  and no earnest man can shake off his full  proportion of that burden.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  HUME.  G. A.
