The   ratepayers  yesterday assented to
three of the four money bylaws submitted to them by the city council.    They
did this  by  a   vote  that    need   not  be
questioned.     When  two to  one  of  the
people want a thing tliey  should   get it.
Two to one of   those  of  the "assessed"
owners of Nelson   real   estate   who took
the   trouble  to   vote   yesterday said by
their votes   that  they   had   faith in the
city council, and that they  were  willing
that they  should   have  the spending of
.$.■0,000   on   the   waterworks, $15,000 on
the  sewers, and   $15,000 on   the electric
light   works.      Alderman    Fletcher will
now have a chance, as chairman  of the
public   works   committee, to  prove that
lie  can   spend    public   money   to   good
advantage,  for  it is generally admitted
that   since   alderman    Hillyer   resigned
he   is   the    council,   tlie    others    being
mere   pawns   to   be   sacrificed   at   will.
Alderman Beer, chairman of the finance
committee,  has  made  two  or three attempts to "down"  Fletcher,  but  he has
always failed, and judging by the result
of yesterday's vote on the civic building
bylaw, alderman Beer might .just as well
couple his resignation jis chairman of the
finance committee Avith one resigning his
seat  in  the council.     Fletcher  and the
little coterie that get tlieir inspiration at
"The Club" defeated Beer's pet, the civic
building bylaw, not in the public interest,
but merely to show their contempt for a
man they call an "eastern Canadian upstart."     But,   somehow,   these    eastern
Canadians upstarts tire good stayers, and
Beer may yet be mayor, before Fletcher.
The election passed off quietly,  and the
result is given below:

on lumber from any country or dependency which may impose an export duty
on logs. The increase will apply to lumber of all kinds imported not only from
Ontario, but from tiny other Canadian
Admiral Dewey Closely Guarded.
llONOKON.', May 2!).—Admiral   Dewey
shows great   improvement  already.    Installed  ..spaciously  Jit Peak   hotel,   with
lofty windows that catch every mouthful
of wind from the sea, he i.s losing the air
of languor that he wore when he lauded
from his blistered   cruiser.      It   was rest
that lie needed—rest and a cooler air. He
is getting both at the Peak.     There  are
no disturbing factors.    It is here thatthe
English      officers     and      tlieir      wives,
the government officials,, the   rich   merchants and distinguished travelers take
refuge from the  heat  and   noise   of the
town.    They all  feel  a deep interest in
tho hero of Manila- bay, but they respect
his       desire      for       quiet.       He       has
become     one     of    themselves    already.
He has dropped into his place in  a little
community that'really resembles a liouse
party at an  .English.,country  residence.
Strangers cannot intrude upon him, however.    The government detectives see to
that.    So do the detectives hired by consul-general  Wildman.      If  the   Filipino
junta ever meant more  than   bluster by
its  hints  of assassination,  it has   been
thoroughly cowed by the British police.
Howard Bray, the English confederate of
the insurgents, has been suddenly stricken
dumb.   -So   have   his   American  fellow-
seheiners.   These people received brusque
warning from the authorities that if they
did uot behave themselves they would be
treated  to a dizzy surprise.    The Filipinos themselves were similarly cautioned
and are under close surveillance.
The Maybrick Case Again.
Washington, May 29.—Secretary Hay
today said that he had no official communication with ambassador Choate ou
-he subject of the release of Mrs. May-
brick from prison, and had received no
cablegram from the ambassador on  the
V _S*«.9V*
Cuban troops entitled to apply here for
a share in tlie American gratui ty, have
effectually killed off the opposition to the
receipt of the bounty by privates. In
American military circles it is considered
'that a fine start has been niade, and that
the'opposition*is defeated. Three hundred priA'ates art-iyed during the day to
apply for payment. Many who brought
at'ins Wel'O not on the Mil at all. Ninety-
, iiiiie t'ifles were surrendei'ed. Most of
tlio applicants declined to take any
chances In turning the weapons over to
the mayor of Havana, evidently believing
it would, be better td give thein direct to
the Americans.
M, Do Beaupre read his report amid
religions silence ancl in tones of singular
clearness and distinctness. Tlie most
characteristic feature' of his address is a
scrupulous impartiality. His first day's
task was to summarize the ground and
to classify and explain the documents in
his portfolio. Tomorrow he will give his
personal opinion of the matter, but his
aim appears to be to let the evidence, as
far as possible, speak for itself. Only one
judge is absent, owing to illness, and the
general belief is that revision is secure.
To Retaliate Against Ontario.
Washington, May 29.—Senator McMillan of Michigan had a long conference
with secretary Gage today regarding the
proposed imposition of a countervailing
duty on lumber imported from Canada.
Senator McMillan, on behalf of the northern timber interests, strongly urged
early action, and if the attorney-general
in opinion holds that under section
105 of the Tariff Act the secretary can
lawfully impose a practically prohibitive
duty on lumber from the Canadian provinces, such action will almost certainly be
taken.    The section in  question  author-

Don't Like the U. S. System.
Lonoon, May 30..—The Standard in an
editorial this morning on the Alaskan
boundary dispute says ; "Lord Salisbury
would be justified in refusing to assent
to the American demand that the umpire
in an arbitration of a dispute should be
chosen from among the citizens of an
American state. It is to be hoped the
conference at The Hague will establish a
permanent arbitration tribunal, before
which the United States could hardly refuse to plead its case."
Tramcar Accident at Seattle.
Seattj_b, May 29.—An electric car containing tAventy-five passengers was run

There was a race for the mining recorder's office yesterday to record some vacant ground between the claims comprising the Inverness group. II. C. Campbell-Johnston, who has taken a bond
upon the group for English capitalists,
gave instructions to the surveyor, John
McLatchie, to stake any fractions which
should be found upon surveying the
group. It happened that Harry Atkins
was also on the lookout for vacant-
ground in. this vicinity, and he and Mc-
Latchie's man staked the ground'about
the same time. Atkins was tit the record
office first, and he was just completing
his record when McLatchie's man put in
an appearance. The ofiice clock struck
nine as the latter entered, aiid he demanded thathis record bo taken at the
same time as Atkins', but this the recorder refused to do, as he said the clock
was three minutes slow, and Atkins
therefore beat him out.
On Saturday 98 tons of coke taken
from the Crow's Nest coke ovens were
forwarded to the Le Roi smelter at
Northport. The coke had a customs valuation of $498.
The Hall Mines smelter made another
shipment on Saturday of lead bullion
and copper matte. In the former shipment there was something oyer 40 tons
which was"-valued at $9468. Of copper
matte there was 42 tous wliich Avere
valued at $11,900.
Dr. Doolittle, who is-operating the
Venus property, will make .a sample shipment from the Venus as soon tis the new
trail is put iu. He has already some fifty
sacks of ore taken from the four-foot
ledge upon which the tunnel is being
driven, and by the time the trail is
ready expects to have another 200 sacks.
Sample assays upon this ledge have given
an-average value of $20 in gold and the
result of a sample return will be awaited/
with interest. *
P. J. Russell, manager in Kootenay for
the Parsons Produce Company, has returned from a trip through Washington,
Oregon and' California, "where he litis
made arrangements with the fruit
growers of those states for regular consignments of fruits. I<\>r some time past
this trade litis been handled .by local
merchants through Spokane jobbers and
the Parsons Produce Company now proposes to enter the field dealing direct
with the growers. With this end in view
the company will next week open ti retail
fruit depot in the opera house block on
Victoria street, and give their'-patrons,

Henry F. Cummings, who is now a.
provincial land surveyor at Fort Steele,
is iii Nelson for the purpose of giving
professional evidence in the Cranbrook
murder case. In bygone days Cummings
was a competitor wi th Thomas M. Ward
in the mercantile field in Golden and the
pair spent yesterday in figuring up -Avhat
it cost tho people"of Golden to deal with
Victoria Times: Sydney Toye, the
manager of the Golden Eagle mine, left
this morning for Alberni, taking with
him a party of Kootenay miners to prosecute work on his property. Mr. Toye's
experience in the Kootenay has led him''
to value the type of miner who delves'in
the earth there,'and the present detach-'
ment are trusty fellows ' upon whom he
"can-depend. He says he will push the
property for all its is worth this year.
Miss Amelia McLaughlin, of Port Hill,
Idaho, arrived in Nelson on the steamer
international yesterday. She will sict tis

James Daniel Gordon, Canadian customs officer at Tobacco Plains, is in Nelson'-.renewing his acquaintance" ' with

into the Boundary litis been a dead dollar,
or tit least a case of suspended animation.
And the aggregate of tlie capital invested
litis been enormous, larger than has over
gone into a non-productive district before. Things are quiet in Boundary because the strain is becoming felt. But as

loans on mining stocks, and in fact are

The frank talk heard on railroad cars  is conducted generally* on the principle  that every one in the immediate vicinity  is stone deaf. On a suburban train a few  days ago a young woman avIio had entered at one station was joined at the next  by a young man, a drummer and old acquaintance. Without delay both plunged  into intimate personal reminiscences.  Said the girl:  "You  heard'" Jim was married,  didn't  you?"  "So a feller told* me."  "Say, now, that  feller ran into a great  cinch.    He went West to Uncle George's  and  got took  into  partnership  on  the  ranch and then married a girl Avith $3000:  They  Irve perfectly  elegant.    She's only  sixteen, too���they** marry real young out  there.    I wish I'd got married at sixteen."  "Whatmakes you wish tliat?" . <-.  "O, I guess I'd be a sight better off  now if I'd got a feller with plenty of  money."  "Well, I don't know about that. You  ain't always better off."  "Why? Don't you get along with your  wife?"  "Oh, yes, but then I ain't home much.  I go back on Saturday night and leave on  Monday morning; so we don't have much  chance to scrap..- 1 tell you if you'marry  a travelling,'man you- get along pretty  well; but it'ain't in human ifaturc for  two people to live together without get-  tin' to, naggin' and "jabbin' at one another,  and if you want a peaceful home you'd  - better be'on-the road.- I tell-you, there's  been timesi av1k.ii she's been a ja'bbin' at  me'that I felt' like fiyiii."  "Well, 1 guess it's better than being to  Avork, anyhow.  -I suppose you knoAV I'd  been Avorkiu', didn't you?"  "You don't say!"  "Well, now, that's what . every one  said. I was Avorkin' in a dry goods store,  and no one would believe it. People just  came to see if it was really so. Why,  sometimes thore'd'be four or five fellers  to see how I Avas gut-in' along, aud if it  hadn't been for that I'd "never haA'e  stood it. The manager was.awful mean  about ifc, too. It seemed'to make him  * mad to see me say a word to any. one,  and after awhile I made np my mind  that F wouldn't stand his sas . any longer.  'Twas this way. Some gcnTin'ii friends  of mine came in and wanted, me to go to  the theatre Avith them, and as it Avas the  busy season the girls was made to stay  till eight o-clock, aiid if X was goin' I'd  'hove tQ leaVe atVHifr, ^mJ^fepOke to^tha  ~~floorwalker^-�� reaP pleasant geuTm'n���  aildf'l-- said he'd' try and. "fix it. At noon  I wei-trup to tlieidesk and he was talkm'  to .lie'iii^hagev.-  " 'Tllis is tlie young' lady I whs tailkin;'  about/ he says*  " 'Oii,' says the'ihanager, 'aiMtloefeu't  she know that Aye are takiii' on girls; to  work overtime and are iutshed at that?'  " 'Well, says the floor Aval ker, 'she's1 got  an engorgement and wants to go at six.'  " 'All' right,' says tlie manageiv 'she can  go at six, but she needn't trouble tocoine  bilck.'  "I wasn't* going to take none of liis  sass, So I says: 'I'll not wait till six, and  you can give, me niy time and I'll go this  minute, foi* I Won't work in a place where  AV_'r_ drove like slaves from mofniii' till  night, with never a chance to talk to a  feller that comes in to see you and kept  iti over hours out of spite.' So I came  aAvay."  "Well,'' said the drummer, "maybe  you're right. It's better to be married,  for then you can boss things yourself  and your husband foots the bills; and if  you never see him you can enjoy life  your OAvn Avay."  �� The train at this "moment stopped at a  station and the couple parted;  Baptist Versus Methodist.  The leading denominations prevailing  among the > mountains of .'Virginia; Kentucky and the adjoining states are  Methodists and Baptists, and as a rule  they are fairly; well divided- among the  mountaineers, but occasionally, for some  reason or other, an entire community  Avill be of one faith. I remember one  season my Avork took me to a remote section on the headwaters of. a small creek  about twenty-five miles from the North  Fork of the 'Kentucky river^ and I had  not been there long until I. discovered  that all my neighbors Avere Methodists.;  They had a good hewed log meeting  house and a. Sunday school and were  thriving as a congregation. There was  one old chap, though, who didn't seem to  be an enthusiast in the cause, and one  day I got to talking to him about the  condition of'affairs.  "Were you born a Methodist?" 1 asked  as a starter.  "I reckon I wuzn't," he replied Avith a  sniff of disrespect. "My folks wus. Rabbis',  I guess clean frum the time uv Noay."  "You go to the Methodist church, don't  you?"  "Yes, but I wouldn't ef .could help  myself."  "Isn't there a Baptist church anywhere  around here?"  "Not nigher than the river, and that's  more'n twenty mile, cuttin' acrost ridges.''  "How does it happen that thereis no  Baptist church Avith- a congregation as  the Methodists have? I have ahvays  seen it that Avay till I came here."  "Thar wus. once, up to about tweuby-  five ye'r ago, an' Ave kep' the Methodis'  on the jump. But sowehoAV I' guess  Providence kinder forsook us after that,  caze e\'ery ye'r sence then fche crick has  been froze up all winter aud dried up all  summer and Ave lost our holts. Yer see  the Methodis' don't need Avarfcer in ther  business like the Babtis' does, and they  keepa-clutterin' right along Avhether it's  a ' drdu th er * a freshet. The crick * wuz  our salvation; and Avhen it went back on  'iis we jisb famished, that wuz all, aud  them that didn't move down by the river  j'ined the Methodis', me bein' one."  "I suppose there never will be any  change," I said at a venbure.  "I ain't so shore about that, colonel,"  heaiiSAvered with impressive earnestness.  "I've been Avras'Iin' Avith the Lord in  pra'r ever sence, fer a flood."  Chamberlain Yields to Jamaica.

Char will bite more freely as the water  rises and gets less clear.  The swiftly rising waters have gracefully covered the outer end of that decrepit institution, the government wharf.  Few people reali/.e the large amount of  trallic moving on this wharf every day.  Surely Nelson ought to have very soon a  safer and more commodious landing for  freight and passengers.  The powder magazine has not blown  up yet, bub ifc is liable to at any moment.  The Alberta brought a large number of  passengers in yesterday morning and the  scene on the wharf was a busy one for a  few minutes. There are likely to be  serious accidents at any time when the  wharf is so crowded, there being no  guard rail and scarcely room for teams  to pass. Ladies are in continual dread of  being crowded over the edge into tlie  water. Either the government or the  city should provide some hooks or poles  for fishing unintentional bathers oub.  day last, and the kiln will be ready to  open on Saturday.
