 SCHOOL  MATTERS  DISCUSSED  And a Trustee Elected.  Tlio meeting which was held in the  school house yesterday morning for the  purpose of electing a school trustee to  fill the vacancy caused by the retirement  of Dr. E. 0. Arthur, was in many respects the most important school meeting which has been held in this city for  several years. In the first place, the  attendance, was much better than has  marked school meetings for several years  past, and in the second a resolution aviis  passed endorsing the proposal that the  city should take over the control oi tho  schools.  Among those present were: Dr. flail,  3. fl. Wallace, It. I.. Kerr, 31. DesBrisay,  Martin O'Jleilly, F. A. Tamblyn, A. Ferland, John Bannerman, A, K. Sherwood,  C. D. J. Christie, George Young, and 3. Ii.  Amiable. A. It. Sherwood Avas appointed  chairman, and J. II. Soady secretary of  the meeting,  The financial statement for the past  past year avus submitted, shoAving a balance on hand on July 1st, 1898, of $24.29,  which, with $195 receiA'ed from the government, brought the total receipts up to  $519.29. The expenditures for fuel, caretaker, etc., aggregated $501.45, Avhieh left  a balance on hand of $17.84. The A*alue  of the present school building AA'as. estimated at $9500, and of the land $9000.  The report A\ras received and adopted.  The report of the board, covering the  record for the year, was submitted as  folloAvs:  "At  no time  during the i_ast   three  years haA'e our school facilities been adequate to tlie needs of our city, notAvitli-  standing  the  most  strenuous  efforts of  the  trustees to  obtain  the  same.    The  trustees have AA'orked to obtain  a good  central  school  building, and  the   establishment of a high  school Avith tlie discouraging   result  that  when school  reopens in August,  Ave sliall  have seA'en  rooms instead of ten that will be needed,  with  no probability of ..having a high  school unless the city establishes it.    To  give some idea of Avhat tlie trustees haA*e  had  to contend Avith, it may be stated  that in February, 1898, Ave asked the government to provide accommodation  for  400 pupils for the opening of school in  August, 1S9S, at the same time explicitly  stating that desks Avould be needed for  the new rooms.   The iicav rooms Avere not  ready for occupation until NoA'ember 15,  and then no desks had been provided aud  only room for 200 pupils.    At the same  time  Ave asked  for an appropriation of  $500 for-incidental expenses and receiA'ed  $300, of which  $250   were  required   for  fuel alone.  :  ., "Before.thojast,,sessio*a.,rof^thei.legishi-  , I.lire opened, the trustees applied to the  department of education and our'member J. Fred Hume for an  appropriation  large enough to finish the school building  as planned  by A. G. Bwai't, and for four  additional  teachers for the .year   1S99.  Only enough Avas appropriated" to finish  "two - rooms in  the ��� iicav building.     The  board' asked   to have  these two  rooms,  made ready for occupation, by May 1st,  but nothing ,Avas done and the superintendent-of education instructed the trustees to rclicA-e tho OA'crcroAvding by taking  half the pupils  of  the  tAvo junior  forms iu  the forenoon aud half in  the  afternoon.    One of these rooms has been  on  half  time for  three  months of  the  present school year OAving to the refusal  of the government to provide necessary  accommodations at the time asked by the  boai'd, the appropriation in  both cases  being available at the time asked by the  board.

That the city .would reaps,  dii'eet financial gain by taking over the  schools Avill appear from the fdlloAving  statement: The city avouM then receive  the poll tax of tliree dQllars per  jioad of adult population and ten ddlUtrs  per head of jwerage attendance at the  schools. A consei'Vative estimate of the  number of poll taxes eolteetible during  the year Avould be 2500, avhieh Avould give  ._ revenue of $7500. While the attendance based on the month of April, 1899,  -would giA'e $2400, making a total revenue  of $9900. Against this Ave receive at  present in salaries of teachers $3480, incidentals $450, a total of $8930, or including $5500 expended last year in building  and furniture, a total of $9430. If the  city had control of the Schools Ave could  then haA'e such schools as the citizens desire and are Avilling to pay for, whereas  uoav Ave are taxed for good schools and  are grudgingly given a miserably insufficient sum and told to make the best  of it."  The question of the taking OA'er of the  schools by the city Avas taken up and  discussed. Dr. Hall reported that the  trustees had iutervieAved the attorney-  general in the matter, Avho stated that if  the citizens of Nelson desired the change  he Avould introduce legislation at the  next meeting of the provincial legislature making Nelson a city school district  On motion of F.

Ottaava, June 24.���A bill of considerable importance Avill be taken up by Mr.  Blair at the next meeting of the raihvay  committee. Its proA'isions will deal Avith  the building of telegraph and telephone  lines, public bridges, and the operation  and control of the raihvays. Perhaps  the most important is that Avhieh refers  to the operating rules for raihvays. It is  provided that the raihvay committee of  the priA*y council.'may make rules and  regulations for all railways Avithin the  jurisdiction of the Dominion parliament.  These rules Avill supersede all previous  ones. Such rules AA'ill be subject to the  approval of the governor in council. Another provision in the bill is to give poAver  to the railway committee of the prh'y  council to order raihvay companies to  erect and maintain stations at gh'en  points. The bill also proA'ides that anyone destroying gates, fences oi' buildings  of a railway company, or entering a train  with the idea of defrauding the company  of a fare, Avill bo liable to a fine and imprisonment.  The telegraph and telephone companies  incorporated by act of parliament, are  empowered to break up or open any high-  Avay, subject to the jurisdiction of the  municipal council. TraA'el is not to be  obstructed and the surface of the street  must be restored to its former state. Tn  case parliament sliall' order at future  times the "wires of such companies to be  placed underground, the companies ^iioav  entitled to carry them on their poles will  \upt,be-able, to-recover damages.        .    ���-_-  ^+    Another Hitch in the Negotiations.    "  Washingto.V; June 24.-^The memorandum, handed to ambassador Choate at  London yesterday, concerned the modus  for a temporary arrangement upon the  Alaskan boundary, Avas .only another step  in the negotiations. A mod ifi cation has  has been requested by the British goA'ernment which the United States -will, haA'e  to consider. The negotiations had progressed so favorably up to the-time of tlie  last memorandum that the belief was expressed that an agreement avou Id soon be  reached. The points of difference betAveen the governments are not niade  public, but the modifications requested  by the British goA'ernment does not meet  Avith faA'or by those avIio are conducting  the negotiations for the United States, as  the last proposition submitted by this  goA'ernnieut Avas believed to contain all  essential concessions, and to be fair iu  eA'ery respect to the Canadians and the  T____tfg___   BRITONS    BECOMING    UNEASY  Over the Transvaal Situation.  London, June 24.���The rattling of  swords in .their scabbards groAvs more  pronounced, though the Avar ofiice refuses  all information regarding the Transvaal  situation, and declines to confirm or deny  the reported circumstantial assertions of  the closetings of the British military  leaders or tho dispatch of this or that  regiment to Capo Toavu. The ministers,  however, have been unable to successfully parry the multitude of questions  raised in tlie house of commons Avith  the intention of getting soine inkling of  the government's intentions.  A reply of the parliamentary secretary  of the Avar office, G'eoige AVyiidham, yesterday evening, is considered jjorten-  tously significant. He Avas questioned  as to the truth of the report that the  British garrison in South Africa Avas to  be gradually increased to 40,000 men.  Had the government Avished to give a pacificatory answer Avith the A-ieAv of allaying the anxiety here and at the Cape,  the question offered ample opportunity,  but Wyndham replied in _avo Avords;  " No sir! " The truth is that Avhatever  plans the go\*ernmeut has decided on the  ministers regard it as impolitic to con-  trad ict reports, hoAvever extravagant, of  Avarlike intentions..  While it is not true that general sir  RedA'ers Buffer has already been appointed to command, he has been heard  to remark in 2Jrivate com*ersation that  he reserved himself for a go at the Boers  to repay some . old grudges. The big  military expenditure of ��20,000,000, as  proA'ided for in the military Avorks loan  bill, introduced in the liouse of commons  on June 21st has caused some alarm  among the taxpayers.  The contrast betAveen the proceedings  in the liouse of commons and at The  Hague peace conference has also been  much commented upon, Avhile a great  deal of dissatisfaction has been aroused  by the intimation conA-eyed by the proposed fortification of her harbors, that  Great Britain cannot rely on her navy tp  defend her coasts. Rear-admiral lord  Charles Beresford strongly opposed the  fortifications, taking the same grounds as  captain Mahan,,U. S.

Brest, June 24.���Captain Dreyfus will  not arrive here until Sunday evening at  the earliest. This Avas the latest ucavs  that was circulated in Brest on receipt  of the announcement that the cruiser  Sfax had passed Madeira yesterday. The  populace continues to maintain the  calmest mood imaginable. Red posters  displayed at A'arious points' heralded a  meeting of Dreyfusites tonight in the  hall DeVoiii*., the biggest dancing hall in  Brest, situated in the vicinity of the  arsenal. The demonstration Avas organized  by socialists and Avas attended by twelve  hundred persons, the audience consisting  mainly of socialists and anarchists, together Avith the detectives.  The speakers, among Avhom were most  of the socialist leaders, addressed the audience from a balcony. They attacked  militarism and reaction. The audience  enthusiastically cheered all references to  Dreyfus, Zola and Picquart. A couple of  individuals who lately cried : "A bas les  juifs ! " were promptly bustled out, but  otherAvise tho meeting Avas pcrfectly  calm and the squads of police who, were  stationed in the adjacent streets had absolutely nothing" to do. The speakers  called upon their ] hearers to assemble  upon the "arrival of Dreyfus in .order to.  defend liberty aud justice. The audience  dispersed Avith cries of " Vive la revolution Ysociale! " "Vive Zola I" and-"'Vive  Picquart!" ^Somc.shouts of " Vivo Pan-  archie !" Avere heard.  The representative of the Associated  Press saw M, Chison, leader of the Brest  socialists. Avho said in the course of his  coiiA'orsation: "AVe intend to be present-  at the landing of Dreyfus, but wc do not  -propose to make any demonstration. AVe  shall be perfectly orderly and quiet unless  the reactionarists attempt to make a  demonstration against Dreyfus. In that  case we shall defend the Cause, liberty  and justice.'" This means thab if the  anti-revisionists attempt a demonstration  tliere will be broken heads in Brest when  Dreyfus is landed.  Tho military authorities are still reticent as to the arrangements made and it is  evidently their desire to conceal the  arrival of the prisoner of DcwiFs Island  until he shall have been safely removed  to Kennes, Avhere there i.s more reason to  fear serious disorder than there is* here.  M^ieTLoiioanj wJio represents Brest in  the senate, said ho did not expect any  trouble upon Dreyfus' arrival unless a  few hot-headed individuals make trouble.  Regatta Attended by Drownings.

ANTI-STRIKE   BILL   DEFEATED  By German Socialists.  Beuux, June 24.��� The attention of the  reichstag this Aveek was chiefly deA-nted  to the anti-strike bill and the public  shoAved more interest in this than in any  other measure of the session. The galleries Avere filled for the first time and the  members attended better, Tho press  also devoted a \rast amount of space to  the measure and the agitation against it  became more active during the few days  preceding the debate. This is not confined to the socialists a.s the evangelical  Catholics, labor unions and the central  coinniittooof Christian miners pronounced  against the bill. Kven the conimittee of  trade of Berlin, a semi-court institution,  petitioned against tho measure, ami all  other such courts and organizations of  laborers and employers did the same.  It Avas clear from the beginning of the  debate that the goA'ernnient's case was  lost.    The  ministers   and   Conservatives  never showed a ray of confidence.    Their  Avhole attitude  Avas  apologetic.    On the  other hand, the attacks, Avhieh  Avere uncommonly sharp, came from  all  parties  except   Conservatives.        The    Centrist  leader, Herr Lieber, Avas  called tp  order  for a sharp arraignment of the courts for  " monstrous  decisions "  against laborers  and "'mildness toward employers."    The  National    Liberal   leader,  Herr   Ilasser-  niiiiii),   complained    that    the    measure  pleased nobody but social democrats, giving them excellent material for agitation;  Herr Babet, the socialist leader, spoke  for hours attacking  the bill  with great  sarcasm and vigor.    The points made by  the many opponents of the measure Avere  that it is  unnecessary  class  legislation,  and that the present laws are adequate  and reach all cases of strikers maltreating others.    They demanded,  instead of  the harsh punishment  provided  by  the  bill, freedom   for  labor  unions  to form  coalitions Avith each other.     The refusal  of the reichstag Thursday, by an immense  majority, to refer the bill to a committee  as equivalent to its death.  Plan to Entertain Visiting Editors.  A telegram Avas receh-ed in toAvn yesterday stating that the members  of the  Western Press Association AA'ill arrive in  Nelson next Tuesday afternoon  over the  Nelson '<fc Fort Sheppard.     They reached  Rossland last night Avhere preparations  had   'been   made   to  sIioav   the  visitors  everything Avorth   seeing  and generally  entertain them.   -Many  think  that this  opportunity  6f*iegitimately advertising  the toAVn, its resources  aiid  attractions  should not be overlooked, and the folloAV-  ing  plan  has  been   suggested:    As   the  "  visitors Avill  probably -go  out  over the    '  Crow's -Nest I 'ass the same evening there  is not' time to do 'much, but  it  is  stated   .  that the C. P. R. AVould be Avilling to meet '- ���  the train, at   Five  Mile .point Avith the  steamer Moyie and take them for a couple  hours'   cruise   round   the   lake  without  making any charge.    After  Avhieh there  would be time for them to-see the,town,  and the siiKil ter sliQuld they so desire.

Among the thousands of tourists who  are rushing OA*er to England at this season it is probable that by *���'_��._ the largest  proportion are going there for the first  time and are full of eager curiosity to see  whether or not the country is anything  like what they have always imagined it  to bo. Men and women usually go to  Europe with very different anticipations.  The women go to see picture galleries  and churches and to price articles of personal adornment. The men go to see life  and to learn the foreign methods of  painting towns' red. The women liaAre  visions of Westminster abbey and Parisian bonnets, while the men dream of the  Moulin' Rouge and Monte Carlo.  Tlie observant man /who visits England  for the first time cannot fail to be impressed by two great English institutions  which are absolutely unknown in this  country. The first of these, and the one  that will force itself upon liis attention  almost as soon as he lands, is the English  chimney pot, a short slender affair of  terracotta, which surmounts every chimney throughout the whole length aud  breadth of,the land. If you ask any  builder why these pots are placed on the  chimneys, he will tell yon that without  them the flue would not draw. Tell him  that you have no such things in Amei'ica,  ,aud yef}=the chimiieys _di?aw.well enough-,.  *and!uasKJ.*h"Kifih_ae\^er*tried -.a-dnmney;.  0iiYi:f*,:or iever "jcii,igw J,aT^jrR]*iTB ���>  %'']^x\^e^y'\\fiihonkfl.

There i.s no necossity to say that it is iu  the bar that she wants employment.  Any person reading the advei'tisment-  knows that. If she is good looking and  bright, she will have no difficulty in getting a chance to try her hand at the beer  engines, but there may be a good deal of  luck in the kind of place in which she gets  a start. After a talk with the pi-oprietor,  who tells her what her duties will be and  what he is willing to pay her if she turns  out well, she is probably told to be on  hand at a certain time and take her first  lesson, and after quite a little fixing up  aud many careful finishing touches to her  toilet she finds herself for the first time  behind the bar of a public liouse.  While a girl is learning, and before she  gets to waiting on customers, she will  probably see enough to convince her that  the mere selling of the drinks is not  everything, and that the barmaid's attitude toward the men who patronize the  place is a matter requiring careful study.  The other girls will probably inform her  as to what she may expect in the way of  couvei'sation from the men, and they will  advise her to look pleasant and turn it off  if anything unpleasant is said. Girls who  have not been properly warned of the  difference between a man at home and.in  front of a bar have been known to bring  their careers as barmaids to a sudden end  by slapping some customer's face, and  then rushing off. to the proprietor in  tears. Barmaids must be made of sterner stuff than that. The great secret of  success is to judge her customers, and the  'principal thing is to study the regular  ones and to learn their funny little ways.  Almost all the regulars have some particular drink, such as gin and bitters, and  the barmaid must know just how much  they like and how to mix it.

As a class,, bax'maids haye two  charafiteEistips; they are always good  looking and ahyays young. If jron, find a  woman oVer thirty-five in attendance at  an English, bay- yoii may nest assured  that she is the housekeeper and that it is  the bai'maid's evening out. The typical  English barmaid has a roijiid fa_e, strong  eyebrows, a firmly cut mouth, and very  "good t_eth���signs of good Sense, self-con-  tV-ol, judgment of liulnan nature and a  cue'ei't'i.r disposition. She iskl ways plainly but neatly dressed, speaks in a low*  well-bred voice, and has tlie happy faculty of beiug. all things to all men.  Where do all these young and pretty  girls come from and how do they happen  to select such a business as tending bar V  AH ranks Of life have tlieir outlets for tlie  restless spirits. In all classes there are  to be found a certain percentage of girls  who are fond of life and amusement and  for whom home comforts have no attraction. They are bored to death with tlie  inonotony of sewing and dishwashing.  Just as some boys have a craving to go to  sea instead of to business, so some girls  long for a freer and wider life than nursing their littlebrotliersandsisters. Girls  of the middle classes who have had the  advantage of a good education usually go  upon the stage if they are good looking  enough ; otherwise they go into business  as clerks or typewriters, or even as saleswomen in the big stores. Girls of the  lower classes, who have little or no education and have no capital but their good  looks and jolly disposition, naturally turn  to the bar.

Tlie girl behind the  footlights lias no one to account to for  her time, and is free to spend her morning., and afternoons pretty nuich as she  pleases and to stay out for late Slippers  titter the play. The barmaid iji.ust be QU  duty before nine every morning, aud  must stay behind tlie bar until midnight.  She is usually so tired after being on her  feet all day that site does hat need any  housekeeper's rules to send her directly  to bed. The only leisure she has is one  evening a week and one day a month.  The evening is a very short affair, for she  cannot go out until eight and must bo  back in the house before twelve. The  day she lias to herself is usually a Sunday, and it does not begin until one  o'clock and she must be back at ten. She  has no chance to go to any of the exhibitions that take place in the afternoons  and seldom sees the sun except tli rough  the windows of the bar.  In spite of all this the barmaid luis unusual opportunities for making acquaintances and friends. These are usually of  two very different classes���those who belong to her own set, such as the tradesmen that bring stuff to the hotel where  she is employed, and those whom she  meets across the bar. Nothing is more  natural for a man who has to hang round  liis hotel a good deal than to strike up an  acquaintance with the barmaid, especially if- she is good-looking. If he finds her  agreeable he may perhaps venture to ask  her to spend her next evening out at tlie  Earl's exhibition, or her coining Sunday  afternoon in a trip up tlie Thames, with  a supper at Richmond. The girl has to  use her own judgment in accepting such  invitations, but if she goes and the man  has sense enough to behave himself and  to remember that the only difference between the girl he is with and tliose that  he may be accustomed to is that this one  has to work for a living and that she is  availing herself of one of the few opportunities she has for enjoyment, he liiay  pass some of the pleasantest hours of his  life with her. There is nothing about  her of which he need be ashamed. She is  always neatly dressed, quiet and well behaved. Barmaids haA'e no earmarks by  wliich they can be picked out in a crowd  like actresses, and their knowledge of the  world and its ways makes them the most  agreeable companions, always jolly but  never loud or conspicuous.  Wluit becomes of all the pretty barmaids . They get about $3 a week and  their board and lodging in the house,  about twice as much as liouse servants.  They cannot' save a compentence out of  this, and most of them leave the business  before middle age. A surprising number  become installed in some of those modest  little cottages at St. John's Wood or  Blackheath, Avhat Englishmen call "second establishments," usually the outcome  of some of the pleasant exciu'sions already  referred to. It is a matter of public  knowledge that one of the best known  men in England had sucli an establishment presided over for thirty years by a  barmaid that he met in Wales, and Avhose  companionship he said he enjoyed more  than that of all the great ladies he had  eA*er met.  Quite a number marry small tradesmen, or men avIio keep bars of their own  either in small public houses or hotels.  On account of their business training and  their tact in managing and., keeping customers they make excellent AviA^es for  small tradesmen aa'Iio need help in the  shop. They usually get along and "save  a bit," and before long you Avill find them'  driving a dog cart on Sunday ''afternoons  FULL LINE OF  aud going to the theatre occasionally.  After a Avliile you avi 11 hear that they are  living in a neat little cottage in the  suburbs, instead of over the shop, and if  you happen to pass that way some afternoon you Avill see that the hands that began life by pulling on the beer engines  under the glare of the lights in a public  house luiA'e found at last their true occupation in pushing a baby carriage under  the shade of the chestnuts on Hampstead  Heath.
