 H^ntapaggrwt&s*mepK  RATE   CONSIDERED   EXCESSIVE  Referred Back to Committee.  At the meeting of tlie city council yesterday afternoon the members of the  public works committee took a hand in  the work of the finance committee and  urged a material reduction in the rate of  taxation as proposed for the current  year. The discussion upon the matter  Avas opened by Harold Selous, who addressed the council upon the wisdom of  making reductions, and when the council resolved into conimittee to consider  the tax bylaAvs ib came out there was  considerable discontent even among tlie  members of the council with the contemplated increases.  The tliree bylaws were considered together in committee, when it was found  that ifc would be impossible to make any  alterations in those for the raising of  amounts to meet interest'* and sinking  fund payments upon the debenture debt.  The bylaw for raising a general fund was  then attacked, the light against the same  being led by alderman Fletcher, who was  supported by alderman Hillyer.  Alderman  Fletcher  said  that, as proposed,  the  revenue from  the three bylaws would aggregate $1_,41S, whereas  the total amount of the city's annual liabilities upon debenture account was but  $9980,   ui'   $10,000   in   round    numbers.  There was therefore  no necessity in his  opinion of raising more than $11,000 under the tax bylaws.    The council should  amend its rate under the general purpose  bylaw to reduce fche  revenue  under the  same  by  $3_18.    He said  that  he  had  gone into figures with  the  chairman of  the   finance   committee,  and   they   had  agreed that the total expenditures of the  city fco date amounted  to $28,22 _.    The  estimated   expenditure for  the  balance  ofthe year  was  $1S,000.    This was regarded as an  outside  figure and -avouId  bring  the  total  general expenditure of  the city up to $_G,000.    Against this the  finance committee had reported  an  esti-.  mated revenue of $50,000, so that,  upou  their oavu shoAving, there Avas a margin  for general  purposes of $4000.    To this  could be added between $0000 and $8000  '. which would, reverb to the general fund  from the public Avorks  committee, Avhicli  avouIcI give the council a probable margin  of receipts over expenditures on  general  account of $12,000, or at the least$10,000.  Mayor Neelands disputed these figures  as to the balance and called attention to  the fact that there Avere several items of  expenditure which  had  not been taken  into account.    He  mentioned   the  grant  to the hospital, .the  repairs  to  the city  wharf and   unsettled- accounts  against  the city avIucIi he figured out at $5700:  ".Alderman Fletcher in reply said that a'  .most generous provision for the items  mentioned by the mayor-would be $1700  so that there avouIcI still be a balance between the estimated revenue and the estimated and actual expenditures upon  general account. He Avas also of the  opinion that the estimated revenue for  the year AAras returned at a loAver- figure  than would be realized,.and there aa-oic  also several ways open to increase it. He  said that he A\*as satisfied- that the best  interests of fche city demanded a material  reduction in the rate* as proposed. The  council had borroAVed considerable money  for the repayment of Avhieh no provision  was made in the proposed rate, and if  under these circumstances tlie rate was  run up in the manner proposed the ratepayers .might Avell ask what tlie rate  would be next year. If ��� the. council did  not feel like taking action in the matter  he thought* that the question of the rate  for general purposes might be referred  back to the members of the finance  committee for reconsideration.

He said that Avhile the city receiA'ed $50 for such licenses the granting  of them in many cases deprived legitimate merchants of from $2000 to $3000.  At the suggestion of alderman Kirkpatrick fche bylaw dealing with this  matter was amended by empowering fche  mayor to grant an interim license to such  hiiAvkers if he so desired, such license' to  be A'alid only until the next nieeting of  the cily council when it should either be  continued or cancelled at the pleasure of  the council.  Aii amendment . Avas made to the  scavenger! ng bylaw,so that the city is  empowered to collect the charges for such  Avork should-the work be performed by  the city. The rates Avill be charged  against the land.  The bylaw Was eventually reported  complete and receiA'ed its  third   reading.  On motion of alderman Hillyer the  council decided to call for tenders for the  Avork of printing the revised bylaAvs and  also fche tax notices.  Insurgents Attack General Macarthur.  Manila,  June  1(5.���After cutting the  railroad and-telegraph at Apolite, seven  miles south, the rebels attacked  general  Macarthur's lines at San Fernado at 4:30  this morning.    They met Avith a Avarm  reception and Avere repulsed with a  loss  of 75   killed,   30   prisoners,   and   many  wounded.      The   rebel   force   advanced  stealthily from the jungle  north  of the  city and then diA'ided  Avith  the  eA'ident  purpose of surrounding  the Americans.  The outposts of the Iowa regiment dis-  covered the enemy and  retired  to  their  lines, Avhere the entire  division  aAvaited  the attack in an entrenched position. The  Iowa regiment and the' Kansas' regiment  received the first shock of attack, taking  the fire until the enemy Avere Avithin 600  yards.    Their first  volley hit several of  the rebels, Avho returned  the fire Avildly,  the rest of their line failing to advance.  The Americans, avIio thoroughly enjoyed  the noA'elty of the situation of .awaiting  an attack, then sallied forth, and  the insurgents turned aud fled.    The American  loss was fourteen men Avounded, the majority of  whom  are only slightly  hurt.  General Fustoii's brigade  of .Kansas4and  Montana   men  and   general  Hale's brigade, fche Seventeenth regiment aud the  IoAva regiment constituted the force engaged.    Aguinaldo is  reported  to'have  personally   conducted   the   attack,   and  made  preparations   for several  days   fco  bring   forward   troops   from  Candabar.  Others from Dagupan  Avere  transported  by rail.  Along the front of the Kansas regiment 39 rebel dead Avere counted. The  lirst news-of a Filipino advance Avas from  a telegraph operator avIio was sent to tho  bridge to ascertain the cause of a break  in one of the wires. He was compelled  to beat a hasty retreat under fire.  DOMINION    DAY   CELEBRATION  Further Details of the Programme.  The celebration committee charged  Avith the management of the hose cart,  boat, and bicycle races as Avell as the  trap shooting events haA'e sent in their  report to the secretary giving a list of  the events decided upon as Avell as the  prizes offered for each. Ifc Avill be noticed  that the pri/.es offered in the trap shooting and boat racing programmes amount  to more in tin. aggregate than fche  amounts placed at the disposal of their  respective committees but this is explained by the fact that the interest  taken in these sports is such that those  aa'Iio haA'e the same in hand secured additional subscriptions for these special  departments of the celebration and were  thus enabled to virtually carry out their,  original programmes.

ROAT RACES.  -3  in thd city' during the 'present year and  there was reason to expect still larger iu-  A**estmeuts, but there Avas nothing which  would more effectually prevent such iu-  vef_tnie.it.' than increases in, the rate of  taxation. The proposed rate for general  purposes wa. six Mills; on the land values,  this would yield a revenue of $0900, and  lie thought that the council could at least  cut this rate ill two abd make ifc tliree  mills AA'ith a rebate of one sixth for  prompt payment.  Alderman ll.ilIyer supported tlie Objec-  tion entered by aldermaii Fletcher. He  said that thferfe should be considerable  increases in the revenue of the city under  the head of electric light and water rates  as well as sewer rates, and ho thought a  statement of the estimated', .revenue  should 'again be; laid before the council  before the bylaw fixing the general rate  Avas passed.  After some further discussion the council decided to rise and report progress,  and the next meeting some neA\r figures  on the estimated revenue Avill be laid before the council by the city clerk.  The council spent considerable time in  discussing the bylaAV bringing into effect  the revised bylaAvs of the council.  Alderman Fletcher desired to insert  clauses in the lieense bylaAV prohibiting  the sale of liquors to minors and also to  prohibit tlieir admission into bar rooms  but as this Avas provided for in the  statutes it Avas decided to allow the proposed amendment to drop. It is likely,  howeA'er, that the holders of liquor  licenses avIH be giA'en notice that the  police commissioners will strictly enforce  the laAV.  There was a Jong discussion as to the  advisability of granting licenses, to  haAvkers. This question Avas introduced  by alderman Hillyer who expressed him-  Fatal Explosion in* Cape Breton Mine.

Manilla, .June 10.���A Spanish officer  who has been a prisoner in the hands of  rebels, and who was released by Aguinaldo, has come through the lines to Manila. He claims to haA'e been a Avitness  of* the assassination . of general Luna.  According to his story, the relations between the two Filipino leaders were  strained to the breaking point by reason  of Luna's attempt to assume control of  affairs, and the final rupture Avas forced  by Aguinaldo issuing secret orders to the  prOA'isipnal goA-ernment.' .Luna', thereupon sent to Aguinaldo demanding copies  ' of "the documents, and Aguinaldo replied  curtly that Luna AA'as a general of the  army and tliat the civil goA'ernment did  not concern him.  Luna, on opening the reply at his headquarters, in the presence of his officers,  exclaimed hotly: "He will be dead tomorrow." One of the officers avIio Avas  friendly to Aguinaldo hastened to Yvarn  him, and Aguinaldo called; together  tAventy soldiers, fellow toAvnsmen of. his,  and stationed them around his house,  wifch instructions to kill any one attempting to enter regardless of rank.  Luna appeared the next day aud saw  Aguinaldo at the AvindoAV. A member of  the guard said : " Aguinaldo has gone to  inspect the troops." Luna then exclaimed: " You are a liar," aud, draAviiig  his revoh'er, "struck the guard and tried  to force au entrance into the house. Before he could use his revolver one of the  guards bayoneted him and another shot  him in the back/and others stabbed him.  In all he had twenty Avounds.

SO  Puiimc   sentiment   at  Nelson  and   in  every  town   in    southern   Kootenay   is  clearly and unmistakably on the side of  the miners in   their  cJVorts  to  maintain  fair Avaj.es for a clay's Avork.    The people  . Avhocamc here from the ISast, came here  to   escape   conditions  that  result  from  - low wages, ami thoy  did not come to be  required    to    repent   sucli    experiences.  Their sympathy,  therefore,  is  with the  miners. Busine..s men,-excepting possibly  the feAV who deal direct AvitlTthe "niiiie  ���  . oavu ers,* know  that  tlieir  prosperity is  dependent on.   the  men   who  Avork I'or  AA'ages.     If a Ioav rate of Avages preA-ails,  little money, can "be- expended for either  Necessaries "or luxuries, and the volume of  business avi*]] be reduced to the minimum.  On" Hie Other hand, if tlio  rate  that lias  ��� been paid continues to lie paid, woi-king-  incn can,not only live comfortably, but  can. make provision for old age.    Owners  of improved real estate are almost to a  . -man in faA'or of tho miner's contention  for a $3.50  rate,  for  it means  to  them  good  interest on their investments.    A  workingman receiving low Avages cannot  pay high rents for dAvellnigs and business  men Avhose A*olume of business is reduced   ca l i uot-aff ord_to_j layJa rge_su nis-inon _hly_  for   tile   use  of  stores  and   warehouses.  Reduce the Avages of the men who "work  in the mines and rents in  every town in  Kootenay  Avill bo reduced.    The people  are beginning to  realize  that  the  prosperity of IvoriLcnay is entirely dependent  pu the nioney tliat is* .disbursed, in Kootenay   for. wages,  and  that    the  money  . cKsbiwect foi' dividends only gOfcs* to u**.-  YbiiihL totvns alid cities in distant lands (ir  ' in: foreign <_ou.fitrios.  Hvi-itY mine in   Southern   Koptcnay  tlrat is st'uiding out foi" the tfii-oe-dollur-  a-d��y 1'iite of wage for sktiled  niint'rs  is  Well able to pay  the  rate  demanded by  the ininei'S.    There i.s not a mine in the  Slocfti) that cannot pay  it  Avitliout decreasing tlieir dividends even as much as  one per cent.    The   Ymir mine (the only  mine of note uoav holding out in the Nelson district) can pay the $3.50 wage Avithout any diminution of dividends, for the  ore  is  quarried, not  mined.*   No  mines  at    ltossland    are     even     trying     to  reduce    wages.     Within     thirty    days  there AVill not be  a  mine jn  Kootenay  that Avill  not be   paying,  their   underground workers the same.rate  of wages  for   eight hours  as tliey   paid   for   ten  hours.    Kootenay will keep up its   reputation of being the best mining country  on earth for workers and   promoters and  investors.  The Eight-hour Law.in Colorado...  Kiigmcei.iiig.aml Mining Joiiriiii1.  The oightrhour-law whi-hMu'iH'jiist-g.onii';  into operation in Colorado is producing ;i  good   deal of  temporary disturbance Yin  the relations betAveen miners and employers.    Probably matters Avill adjust themselves in time,.but there is a good deal of  friction in the process, a.s seems to be ini-  ad voidable   in cases of this kind.    Various expedients haA'e been adopted in different districts   to meet the  new conditions.       The   most    generally   adopted  among the mining companies seems.to be  the system of making an hour instead of  a day  the unit of  payment;   but  this is  not at,all popular among the-miners and  other Avorkmen, who haA'e  protested   in  A'arious  ways.    In  tAvo  cases the differences have-resulted  in strikes, one at the  Durango Smelting Works and the other  in the AVard  District.    In  both places,  however,  the  strikes   will ������'probably,  be  adjusted by compromises  on the rate of  wages.    In the LeadA'ille district the large  niines  are  generally arranging to work  eight-hour shifts,  but   require that the  time shall   be taken from   the time tho  miners   reach the  bottom of the shaft or  tlie face of the  drift,   thus   demanding  eight full hours of Avork, Avith no time allowance for going doAvn into the mine, or  coming out,of it.  This plan will probably  be adopted by -a 11.the Leadville  niines.  It will take .some"--iinc.'to settle  all the  questions  involved.' and:, there /will- be a  great-deal,of discussion   over  details of  'the. various 'arrangements,:, but "no more  strikes are anticipated.

But one of my chief reasons for asking  our directors to permit me to relinquish  the duties of president, was to secure the  well-earned0 promotion   of   Mr.   Shaugh-  FULL LINE OF  The  present  seems  favorable for  a change, for  the  company   is in a  nessy, whose services to the com pa i y  have been beyond estin aticn. and wh m  I look upon ;is all that could be wished  for as the chief executive oflicer of a  great corporation, honorable, capable, energetic, and fair-dealing. I have knoAvn  him intimately for many years, and have  never yet discovered a fault in him, unless it be injustice to himself. The  warmth of my feelings towards him can  only be imagined by those whoknow him  well. The shareholders of the Canadian  Pacific Company are to be congratulated  on having such a man in command."

The couplings at both ends of the car Avere automatic and the car slipped out Avithout  breaking those ou the tAvo cars next to  the derailed car. The tAvo sections of the  disunited train soon came together again  aud coupled automatically. The air connection Avas broken, but, although the  train stopped,' and the air Avas again  connectedjthe trainmen did not miss the  car, and it Avas not missed until the conductor looked over his train at Rood-  house.

The river has risen 7] inches chiving  the forty-eight hours ending at 0 p. in.  yesterday. The steainer International  was at the city wharf yesterday on her  usual run, after extensive repairs to her  boiler. Yesterday a. freight carrying  boat built by AV. .1. Ashley ��S_ Co. was  shipped to the Lardo. h'reight is brisk  up there at present. Plenty of trout  may be seen rising on the river of an  evening now.  She Found- Her Man.  Mrs. Jessie Tennant has got her man at  last and he will be taken back to America  today. There have been many conflicting stories, but the; following' appears to  be the true version. Airs. Tennant lives  at Salt Lake City, where she owns considerable property. The prisoner, Barlow alias li. I_. AVhite, roomed in the same  block as Airs. Tennant and became acquainted "with her. She was in poor  health last winter and Barlow transacted  considerable business for her, eventually  getting a power of attorney to collect  her rents. Soon afterwards she left for  Sacramento to go into the hospital there,  leaving her valuables in Barlow's' charge  who promptly decamped, taking Avith  him $1500' iii cash and $1800 worth of  jewelry. *  Mrs. Tennant only learned of her loss  on leaving the hospital, ancl 'immediately  started after him. She traced him to  Walla Walla, thence to Spokane, and  from Spokane to Hosslaud. It. appears  that in March he opened up a store in  Rossland wliich he ran for a couple of  months, pawning some of the jewelry in  the meantime. From there he -went to  Duncan City via ��� Nelson, where he was  arrested. He was selling lots on commission for AAr. J. Twiss at Duncan City. The  woman he originally had with him has  disappeared. This morning he will be  taken as far as Wan eta by a provincial  constable, and at the boundary he will  be handed over to the marshall of  Northport.  .NELSON.  The English crew which will compete  ���in the "international" fours has been  made up as follows: C. B. AVinter, stroke ;  Kelly, Curtis and II. B. Haines. All the  four crews are now practising except that  of the canny Scots, who this time are  not upholding their nationality with  their usual vigor.  -j The base ball* and "hicrosse- clubs will  build a permanent grand-stand on.the  recrei-tion ground* with, a seating capacity-  of 1000. The .manager- of.- the -lacrosse  team approached the manager of the  base ball team yesterday in the matter,'  and after some "discussion the lattcy  agreed that t'hetwo chibs should halve tho-  rec.eipts taken in during.the celebration.  After that each team-will be entitled to  the    moneys   received   during   its   own  matches;  Rev. 11. Frew returned yesterday  morning from Ainsworth. where he delivered a lecture.  I\ Burns and Co. have sold the Merchants hotel building to II. Scions, and it  will be moved to a site on 'Vernon street,  cast of Hall. The building was erected  by colonel Topping in the spring of 1S00,  and was the fourth frame house built on  Baker street.  The rails for the electric tramway anon the way, and, as will bo seen elsewhere, C. Halifax Hall, the company's engineer, is calling for tenders for tin; nec-  ccssary ties and timber.,,  Anot In r kiln  containing _;"..,(I00 brick  is now burning at* the Nelson yard of the  West Kootenay Brick ��fc Lime Company.  Kighty thousand brick from   the  Balfour  yard will be landed in Nelson u.x7 week.  Application     for    a    hotel    license    at  Collins'   ranch   opposite   this  city    was  made at New Denver ou.Thursday before  the license commissioners of the Slocan  licensing district by George   Keefer  and  .1. AValbey.    The application was refused.  The   licensing   commissioners   for   the  Nelson licensing district met yesterday in  tlie ofiice of the jjrovincia.l police to consider applications for licenses.     A license  was granted to-I'.   Fitzgerald  of Salmo.  Theapplication of Chcrbroand Mannarino  of Kuskonook Avas adjourned until   July  ���1th, because the bondsmen  were unsatisfactory.       The   applications    of   M.   11.  Gilliam, of Erie  ami   Boyer  &��� "Lovell of  Ymir were adjourned until the same date  because  of   the  non-attendance  of   the  applicants.
