 ^  'or  THE CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS  Two Resignations Handed In.  At the meeting of the city council last  ,,   evening alderman Beer resigned the chairmanship of the   finance  committee, as a  protest against what he termed  the uii-  imsiness-like   methods   pursued  by   the  majority of the   members of  the council  in dealing with tlie  city's bank   account.  Alderman   Beer   introduced  the bank oc-  counfc   matter   when all   other   business  had been disposed   of.    He  said he  was  not satisfied to leave the  matter  of  tlie  city's bank account in the shape in which  it was.   He had allowed a sufficient interval to elapse so that  all members   of the  council could deal   with  it  Avithout   prejudice and it could uot be  said  that  he  was attempting   to  snatch  any   verdict.  The position which he took  was   that  if  tlie unanimous report of the finance committee was not to be accepted and acted  upoii by the council  as  a  matter wliich  properly came  within   the  scope  of the  committee it showed that the council had  no confidence in  the committee, and  in  his  opinion  it .was  uot the   committee  which'should handle the $70,000  which  tlie council was asking the ratepayers foi".  Personally he would   not  be  willing  to  continue to act as chairman of the committee   if   the   council   had   not   sufficient    confidence    in    it   to    carry   out  its recommendations with respect to the  desposition of the  city's  bank  account.  In order to get the sense of the council  he therefore moved that the city's bank  account for the  current year be  transferred to the Merchants Bank of Halifax  in accordance with the bank's tender to  allow four por cent upon deposits and to  charge 5i per cent upon overdrafts.     He  said that as he understood the tender the  bank was prepared to handle the debenture   deposits  of the  corporation   upon  this basis during their currency and such  being the case  he  thought  the  council  should accept the tender.  Alderman Fletcher said there had been  a misunderstanding as to the rate of interest allowed by the Bank of Montreal  upon the city's deposits. The city had  been receiving five per cent, whereas it  was understood that not more than  tliree per cent would be allowed. This  made a very material difference, and  with five per cent allowed on deposits  and six per cent charged upon advances  the offer of the Bank of Montreal was  very much better than that of the Merchants Bank of Halifax.  Alderman Beer said that if such aviis  the. case the Bank of Montreal had been  allowed to alter its figures and this had  apparently been done -without anyone  knowing it. _     ;  . Alderman. l_leteher repeated tliat_ he  thought it AA'ould be a mistake to .change  the city's account,,a.nd in any, event, if  ' such was decided upon, it should not be  done Avithout calling for fresh tenders.  Alderman Beer 'iu reply contended  that the catch-penny scheme of the Bank  -of Montreal Avas not fair to the other  tenderers and the council's acceptance of  it Avould make' his_ position absurd after  tlie recommendation of the finance committee upon the matter. As matters  stood lie Avould not as chairman of the  finance committee take any responsibility  in asking the people to vote for any of  the' money bylaws.  Alderman Fletcher remarked that if it  became the rule for every member of the  council to resign Avheueversome particular  ideas of his were not entertained the  Avhole council Avould be resigning.  Alderman Thomson suggested as a way  out of the difficulty that the mayor and  the chairman of the finance committee  interview the bank managers, and ascor-  | -ain-Avhother--heir_teiide_.s_coutempla.ted  the carrying of the sinking funds upon  all the present debenture.: during their  currency and the payiiient of a fixed rate  of interest upon them.  Alderman Beer welcomed this suggestion and he added that if such an inter-  view established the fact tliat such was  not the case, that the banks Would not  guarantee the payment of a fixed rate of  interest upon all debenture deposits during the life of the debentures, that lie  AVd.nld Hot ask. the council to make any  change in the bank account,  Mayor Neelands i>ef��sed to entertain  tlie suggGstioUi He silid in so many  words that lie would u,ot be in favor of  any change being made in the bank  account unless new tenders 'Were called  for.  Alderman Beer said that if it was the  decision of the council to allow matters  to .remain as they were he for one Avoiild  not consent to be a party to any -uch  tiling. . He merely asked that the council  transact  its business  in a  business-like  TUESDAY MORNING, MAY  23.  1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  Fell & Gregory, solicitors for the Nelson  City Land and Improvement Company,  in wliich they declined to go to arbitration Avith the city over the Aralue of the  lots covered by the city reservoir. If the  present difficulty Avas to be adjusted between the corporation and the company  all the matters which the company  claimed to be in dispute Avould require to  be referred to the arbitrators. The lawyers asked that the company's compensation for tlie lots coA'ered by the reservoir,  for all lots alleged to haA'e been damaged  by excavations, and for all lots-crossed by  the corporation's flume and mains, as well  as the terms upon which water should lie  supplied to the residents should be fixed  by the arbitrators. Roughly speaking  the lawyers asked for an arbitration upon  a claim of $0450 and the manner in which  the corporation should administer its  water Avorks system. The laAvyers' document covered several sheets of typewritten foolscap and the reading of it Avas  listened to Avith groAving admiration by  the members of the council.  Alderman Fletcher Avas the first to express an opinion upon it. He said the  proposition of the company Avas the most  bare-faced case of attempted blackmail  that could be dug up. In its claim for  damages had advanced the price of inaccessible tAvo and three times oyer the  price at which" lots Avere sold close to the  city boundary.  Alderman Thomson said that the claim  figured up to about $0450. The offer of  the former council iu settlement AA'as  $750. This in the opinion of all avIio  knew anything about the ��� property AA'as  most generous and more than all the lots  Avere worth. He thought that the best  desposition of the matter .-AA'ould be to  refer it to the city solicitor. This Avas  done!  A proposition wliich pressed that of  the Nelson Land aud Improvement Company a close second Avas that contained  in tho letter of Messrs. Gamble & O'Reilly  on behalf of the OAvners of addition A.  They asked that the city pay $2000 for  tAvo small piecesJof creek bottom in the  bed of Cottoinvood Smith creek, knoAvn  as blocks B and C, said land being either  covered by,the city's electric light dam,*  -or as they alleged damaged by the over-,  flow of Avater from the same.. .  Alderman Fletcher obsciwed that iu  A'iew. of..the A'alue Avhieh the.OAvners.of<  the-addition placed upon their 'property*  the city should at once take stops to  raise theassessment upon all- the unsold  lots in the addition. Taken in'connection  with the request of the Victoria laSvyers,  it looked to him as if the city Avas being  held up all round.  Alderman Thomson expressed the same  opinion, but the council decided that  they Avould giA'e F. C. Innes, Avho is in  the city, another chance to be reasonable,  and he Avill be Avaited upon.  The petition of the business men who  use electric light, asking for a reduction  in the rate charged for the same during  the summer months, Avas referred to the  finance committee upon motiou of alderman Thomson, seconded by alderman'  Fletcher. From Avhat dropped from the  aldermen tliere is no present prospect of  any reduction being made.  Alderman Fletcher said that the rates  in Nelson were about half of the rates  charged in other places, considering the  not carry the money bylaws there would  have to be more paid in the way of taxes.  The report of tlie city engineer that it  would cost $1000 to make temporary repairs to the goA'ernment Avharf, Avas then  read, also the letter of Hon. F. C. Cotton,  stating that if the corporation Avould not  take the Avharf over the provincial  goA'ernment would be obliged to take the  planks off the same and close it to traffic.  No action Avas taken by the council  Avith respect to the taking over of tlie  AA'harf. Proper repairs cannot be made  to advantage till after the high- Avater,  and the council does 'not Avish to relieve  the goA'ernment of any liability for probable accidents until it could take OA^er  and make the necessary repairs to advantage.  The petition of the residents of east  Carbonate street for sideA\**alk and Avater-  AA'orks extensions Avent to the public  Avorks committee to be hung up till after  the money bylaAVS are disposed of.  Tupper, Peters & Potts bill for costs, in  the appeal case of Arthurs A's, the city,  Avas referred to the city solicitor, It Avas  for $704.88.  C. W. West's request that the city  engineer lay out a roadAvay through the  park to be built by the OAA'iiers of the  Hume addition Avas hung up at the suggestion of alderman Fletcher until the  corporation secures a deed for the park.  R. Marpole's letter stating that nothing could be done Avith respect to the  recreation grounds until the C. P. R. company's land commissioner , returns from  ���Europe, was receiA'ed and filed.  The petition for a sideAA'alk on Front  street from Ward to Park street AA'as laid  pArer. The application for "sewer, connection from the managers of the Methodist  church Avas treated in the same AA'ay.  The Kootenay Electrical Supply Co.  offered to sell the city 33 lamp meters  for $20, 00 lamp meters for $37 and 110.  lamp meters for $4(5. No action aviis  taken.  Alderman Hillyer tendered his resignation as a member of the council, but at  the unaininous request of the council  AvithdreAv it for another Aveek.  City engineer McCulloch Avas giA'en tAA-'o  AA'eeks A'acation.  THE  LAW  AND  THE COURTS  Avay.  Alderman Fletcher raised the point of  order that the discussion Avas quite irregular as the motion for the changing  of the bank account was not seconded.  None of the members of the council  evinced any readiuess , to second the  motion so alderman . Beer then repeated  that he AA'ished it to go on record that he  Avas opposed to the action of the council.  He concluded : "I repeat that I Avill not  be a party to anything of this kind. I  have therefore pleasure and at the same  time regret iu resigning liiy position as  chairman of the finance committee. I  am not Avilling to be a party to Avhat I  consider as a one-sided thing. I consider  thatthe disposition of the matter Avas  controlled by sentiment and not by business principles."  Next in importance came the.letter of  amount of electricity used  Alderman Beer said that the matter  had been before the finance committee  and it Avas thought advisable to have a  Avinter and summer rate, but that the  best time to make a change AVould be in  August. ���  Alderman Thomson asked alderman  Beer if it was proposed to increase the  winter rate but alder-man Beer refused to  ftiisAVer and smiled a knowing smile.  The committee appointed to deal with  the East Baker street problem, reported  'in favor of the city council giving tlie  Avomen in question four months'notice to  leave that portion of the city. The committee also recommended tliat steps be  taken Avhereby the members of this class  of society Avould be kept as much as possible in one locality, as otherAvise their  removal from the present place AA'ould be  of little object.  Alderman McKillop thought that the  consideration of the report Avas of sufficient importance to warrant the laying  over of the report until there Avas a full  attendance of the members of the council.  The report AA'as therefore laid over.  When the report of the public Avorks  committee Avas read, recommending expenditures upon Poplar street, alderman  Beer expressed the opinion that no expenditure should be made until the result  of the voting upon the money byhvws  Avas known. If, however, the council decided to make the expenditure the al--  dermeu. should, be prepared to raise an  increased amount in the Avay of taxes in  the event of the money byhvws being  defeated.  .-. Alderman Fletcher held that it Avas  immaterial to the members of the council  Avhether the ratepayers A'oted the money  or not. There had beeu certain expenditures niade "'which AA'ere chargeable to.  debenture account, and if the people, ditl  The Peace Conference.: T  Tub PlAGUE,*May22.���AndrowTJ.' White,  head of ..the American delegation, in an.  interview here- with a representati\-e of  the Associated Press, said he regarded  the situation as promising; that the first  Avork of organization was avoII done. lie  added, "T am full of hope that it will be  possible to reach a practical conclusion.  The words of emperor William have contributed to improve the -.situation. 1  think avc may arrive at some results on  the subject of mediation and arbitration,  although it is undoubtedly impossible to  make such action obligatory. It can be  rendered at least optional, and I believe  that after tlie conference the poAA'ors Avill  recognize that they haA**e at their disposal  a means of-regulating their differences  other Aviso than by Avar. That will be an  immense advantage."  A Mining Company's Troubles.  The .Northern Liglit mineral claim, situate on the south slope of the centre fork  of Forty-nine creek, and being the chief  property of the Bright Prospects Gold  Mining and DeA'elopment Company, Avill  be sold by sheriff Tuck on Thursday to  satisfy a, claim for AA'ages and legal costs  amounting to sonietliing over $1200.  Should the property be sold on the date  mentioned it Avill  mark  the close  of a  somewhat remarkable ease.    It Avas upon  this property that the Bright Prospects  company did the bulk  of its  Avork, and  settled Avith its agent, mimed Wright, for  the same.     Wright,  hoAvever,  failed to  pay the miners the AA'ages due them and  they filed a mechanics  lien  against the  property.     The men���John  F.  Holden,  William   B.   Hudson,   Christian   Ulben,  William   H.   Wright   and   William   H  Warren���consolidated their action, Avhieh  Avas tried before judge Forin on January  17th. The court ordered that,the amount  claimed   by  the  men���$S40���should   be  paid Avithin tAvo  AA'eeks,  or  the mineral  claim   should  be sold.     From this  the  Bright Prospects Company appealed, but  the   appeal  Avas    disalloAved   Avith    the  result that the original claim of $840 AA'as  SAvelled to $1200 by the  usual legal  process.    P. E: "Wilson  Avho  Avas  acting  as  tlie miner's solicitor then endeavored to  arrive at a settlement of the notice  for  the sale of the claim, but., was  met Avith  delay after delay until  the  claim  came  Avithin 24 hours of running out.   Had the  claim run out the mechanics lien proceedings would be  Avorthless, so  on May 5th  the miners' solicitors secured an affidavit  from one of the men that the  necessary  Avork   had   been    done iipou  the   property and had tlie same recorded.    This  Avas done rather  quietly and only those  avIio Avere interested in the collection  of  their Avages kneAV anything about it.    So  far as those not  hi  the SAvim kneAV, the  claim rau out'on May (5th.    It Avas  then  restaked and a bill of sale was given  aud  recorded  in the record  office, but those  Avho had restaked it had  their labor  for  their pains, as the recording of the=neces-  sary Avork kept the' claim aliA'C and  kept  something   for  the sheriff L'"to. sell.' iTlie  sale  is  no*w   being   hurried  to, prevent  further difficulty'through the lapsing of  the "defendant company's, license. * As tb  'the value of .he claim but little is kiunvn  saA'c tliat the miners would not be averse  to taking it  for the Avages owing   them.

Snyder returned on Sunday from  a tour of the mines in the Ymir district,  and in an  interview Avith a Tribune reporter at Ymir stated that the  general  concensus    of   opinion    avus   that    the  "skilled"  miners  Avould  not accept less  than $'3.50 for the eight-hour  shifts, and  the  impression   he   gathered   Avas,  that  were the  mine  OAvners to insist upon a  lower rate of Avages that this  section  of  the   mining   community avou Id   lose "the  benefit of ..killed miners, as  they   would  go where the $:3.50 rate prevailed, or put  in time  by   doing assessment  A\'ork   on  their claims.    He said  mining operators  would be foolish to alloAV good miners to  leave for the difference of a  few cents  a  day and put in unskilled labor.    The distinction he dreAv A\'as that a skilled miner  would do as much AA'ork iu  six hours as  an  unskilled one  would do in ten  and '  with  more   satisfactory   results.      This  opinion is confirmed by one  of the leading mine  operators in the Ymir  camp.  Mr. Snyder says that the skilled  miners  are A\'illing for the matter to be  settled  by arbitration, and he thought that the  mine OAvners should  meet  them  in  the  same spirit.

They are appealing   to the   cupidity   of the A'Oter.  Tliey say, vote for the money bylaws,  and Ave "will see that your taxes are not  raised; biit if you vote against tho ,by-  '^lW.s^Sy.e,;'will:cincii you by raising ybur  taxeat .-j��pt n.$ see What this worthy pair,  as chaii'meitf of the two standing Oommrt-  tees of'the eouncil, have already: done in  .the Way of, raising the taxes.    Last year  the total of the assessment roll  AA'as less  than $1,000,000, and the rate  levied was  eleven mills,  AA'ith a rebate  of one mill  for prompt ���payment.    The amount collected in taxes Avas  $8890.(50,  and about  $1000  AA'as  carried  over   as  delinquent.  Tills year the assessment roll-'has been  swelled,    over. 50    per   cent,    in   other  words a lot that AA'as assessed at $500.last  year is assessed at $750 this year.    If the  rate levied this year is  the same  as was  levied last year, the taxes AA'ill be 50 per  cent higher  than they  Avere  last  year.  But  in no  event  is  tho  rate  to be  the  same as it was hist year ; it is to bo savoII-  ed 50 per 'cent,  -juntas   Avas the  hsk_sk-  menfc.       Had   the   two   aldermen   been  honest Avith the ratepayers, they Avould  haA'e had the rate of taxation announced  a month ago. The.ratepayers of Nelson  should0shoAV these tAvo practical jiolitir.  cans that they haA'e no confidence--in  theni, and the Avay to sIioav it is to place  a cross mark opposite the AA'ord "NO ". on  all.the ballot papers ou Monday next.  ;���  The company AA'hich oaa'us one hundred  and.sixty acres of laud adjoining.

The-main portion of 'Dawson was destroyed by fire on April 2()_li, causing the  loss of. $4,000,000. .In all 111 Wildings'  were burned. The fire occurred in the  business center of the city, commencing  near the opera house on tlie water front  and spreading with unusual rapidity. It  was driven by a strong north wind, destroying eA'ery thing in .its way on that  street down to and including Donahue &  Smith's establishment. The fire then took  in all of the water front buildings abreast  of the same blocks. It crossed the street,  burned throughand spread over to Second  street, covering the principal.  portion of Dawson, leaving it all in ashes,  with the firemen helpless and powerless  to do anything. The fire consumed the  FairvieAv hotel, the buildings beingas. dry.  as tinder. The Haines spread *with' such  rapidity that the citizens appeared panic-  stricken and unable-to. save anything in  the .way of furniture, goods and clothing.  Among the most prominent firms  burned out., were the Bank of British  North America, the Bank of 7 Commerce,  McLellau & McFeeley, the Parsons Produce Company,, Royal cafe, Donahue &  Smith, the Aurora saloon, the Bodega,  the '..Maddeni' house,-. the, '.Victoria.,hotel,  Is now prepared lo issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^on, District.  4u abortive attempt avus made to extinguish the blii'/.e before an alarm was  sounded, and in this way a delay was  caused that gave the lire such headway,  that when the lire brigade did turn out  tliey loiind a conflagration beyond their  power to subdue. Within hall'an hour  i'roin the time it started the lire had  crossed the street twice, burning through  and spreading to" Second street, every important building in what was broadly  known as the business district being, eaten up. .Not long after the first half  hour's work the people accepted the inevitable and the firemen abandoned  tlieir efforts to extinguish the flames and  devoted themselves to tho saving of  property in buildings yet removed from  the sweep of the fire. Not a single building was left a landmark from Tinnnon's  Royal   cafe   to   opposite-- the   Fairview  ��     _,,,_._,  hotel. In this, district were all tho  structures erected in 1897 and 1898���indeed not a pioneer building is left in the  town.  Provisions have not advanced in price,  nor clothing, the companies being determined apparently to do all in their power  to relieve the general distress.  St. Wilfrid's Latest Lyric.  It may be remembered that Robinson  Souttar, M.P. fur Dumfriesshire, said lithe house of commons the other night  that the Saxons might not have beaten at  Hastings had they not drunk so hard the  night before the battle. Sir Wilfrid  Lawson, M.P., has taken Mr. Sou-tar's remark as a text for the following amusing  lyrical comment on the potations of. our  race: "  When Julius Cuisur landed hero.  He eonqucrcd men bemused with beer ;  When Norman William from his.j link.  In triumph stepped���they still were drunk.,  l'"or though we Jiril.ons "rule tho wave..,!'  To drink we ever havo been slaves.  Kight h uiidred year.. have passed away,  And things are much tlie same today.  liy those who rightly understand.:-  It's kiiDwn that drink still'rules'the land.
