TENDERS   WILL  BE   SECURED
For Completing Light Flume.
A speeijil meeting of tlie city council
avjis held yesterday afternoon for the
purpose of making provision for the entertainment of tlio guests of the corporation during the days of tlie Dominion
Day celebration. Several other matters
were also taken up, including the consideration of tlie reports from the two
standing committees.
Tlie report of the finance committee
went through without debate. It merely
recommended the payment of salaries
aggregating $102-1.00 and streets payroll
aggregating $37.5(5.
The report of the public works committee was not so fortunate, as alderniiin
Beer, who has been absent from the city
for some time, displayed considerable
interest in its contents. The committee
made   the following   recommendations:
(1) That a two-inch main be laid on Hoover street to lots 1,5 and 0  in block  53:
(2) That tenders be called for for tlie
erection of a fire station building on Observatory street, tlie tenders to state
price for plastered and unplastered Avails;
(3) That applications be invited for tlie
positions of caretaker of the city cemetery, the pay to be $25 per month, with
free home and fees for private graves;
(-1) That action be taken with regard to
projecting verandas on the city streets
for the safety of the public; (5) Tliat a
10-foot sidewalk be laid on Ward street
between Baker and Victoria street; (0)
That tenders be called for for the completion of the electric light flume, such
tenders to be sent in by 2 o'clock p. m.
on Thursday, tlio (ith of July.
Alderman .Beer's chief objection was to
the last clause of the report dealing witli
the completion of the electric light Hume.
He thought that the matter could be deferred until the city engineer was able to
give the work his attention.
Alderman Fletcher urged the adoption
of the committee's recommendation, as
he said that tlie city was suffering a loss
of $100 for every Aveek tliat the work
was delayed. If the council decided to
leave tlie completion of the flume over
from time to time there would not be a
stick of lumber left, as it was all warping
and splitting. As to the desirability of
having tlie work done by contract as
against day labor, the chairman of the
public works committee ' said tliat the
former work wliich had been done by
days labor had cost the city from 20 to
30 per cent more than it should'have,
done. -,::■:: .......■.:..

late. To consider a tender which came
in late was not dealing fairly Avith a man
aa'Iio attended to his business and complied witli the conditions imposed by tlie
council.
Alderman Hillyer said that the objection to calling for fresh tenders wus that
it aviis a common practice for persons
tendering for any Avork to compare the
prices of their tenders after the time for
receiving the same had -'closed. To call
for fresh tenders because one Lender was
received late Avas "therefore ileal ing unfairly with the persons who had tendered
in time.
Alderman Beer repeated that if the
council dcciiled to act upon the one tender that both tenders should be receiA'ed.
Mayor Neelands said that it was a, most
unsatisfactory way of doing business.
His own feeling in the .matter 'was thafcc
the council should deal Avitli the tender
Avhicli had beeu submitted in time and
that the other should be thrown aside.
He, therefore, ruled the hitter tender out
ancl proceeded to open the tender of the
Tribune Association. In this tender the
offer'AA'as made to print 100 copies of the
bylaAA's after the style of the provincial
statutes at the rate of $2 per page and to
print additional lots of fifty copies for 1.0
cents per page in addition.
After considerable discussion it Avas
decided to place the order Avith the Tribune Association for 200 copies. This
Avas done on motion of alderman Hillyer,
seconded by alderman Fletcher.
The council also decided to sell copies
of the byhiAA'S to those who might require
the same at the rate of $2 per copy.
THE
DAY  IN THE  COMMONS
The Columbia Made a Good Showing.
Newport, Rhode Island, June 27.—In
a good Avhole sail breeze this morning tlie
.new cup"defender Columbia and the defender champion of 1895 had a second
and more thorough test as to their speed
than the light air of Saturday, and again
the neAV boat proved that in windward
work she could both outpoint and out-

Ottawa, .Tune 27.—A meeting of the
public accounts committee Avas called this
morning but no business Avas transacted.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier was present for a
second time to be examined on the Manitoba election frauds case, but sir Hibbert
Tupper avIio had charge of the case Avas
not present to conduct tlie examination.
Mr. Foster announced tliat sir Hibbert
was engaged in the preparation of a
speech wliich he was going to deliver
during tho afternoon on tlie Yukon
charges in tlie house and consequently lie
could not be .present. It AA'as reported
that sir Hibbert Avill prefer charges'
against' tlie Yukon officials and "will ask
for.a committee of investigation.
W. H. P. Clement, legal adviser to commissioner Ogilvie in the Yukon, is iu tlie
city on business Avith the interior and
justice departments. Mr. Clement says
that Ogilvie's-. - investigation' into the
charges against the officials was closed
some time ago and none of the charges
Avere sustained.

Pacific railway Avas here last niglit and
had a long interview Avith the goA'ernment in regard to the Grand Trunk and
Intercolonial traffic arrangement AA'hich
is to last for ninety-nine years aiid Avliicli
president Shaughnessy opposes. He says
it is tantamount to giving a lease of tlie
Intercolonial for ninety-nine years.
Mr. Blair's raihA'ay bill, regarding operating rules for rail way's, Avas laid before

Alderman Beei- .was the first tb take
the matter up. He expressed the opiiiiou
that there could be lio Objection to having both tenders read.
Alderman. JEU'Uy.&e interposed an olij.ee-

sent in at the same time there should be
some explanation. It" was generally* liii-

Alderniaii Fletcher took much the same
view. There Avas but one thing for the
council to do. It sliould either ignore
the tender Avhieh had come in late or
burn both tenders and Call for neAV ones.
Alderman Beer fell in line Avith the
second proposition, that the present tenders should be destroyed and fresh tenders called for. The .council sliould haA'e
more than One tender iu.
Alderman Hillyer Avas opposed to calling for fresh tenders. The couucil had
stipulated the conditions which should
govern the tendering. One of the printing offices had complied with the conditions and the other had not. Tliere Avas
therefore but one tender before the
council.
-Alderman McKillop said that there was
but one thing for the council to do. If
it proposed to act upon the present tenders one of them Avould have to be rejected at once.
Alderman Fletcher reminded the council that upon the last occasion when it
was considering tenders one tender had
been rejected because it was ten minutes

uoav existing, or future Canadian routes
in fiiA-or of the Grand Trunk and its
.United States allies. Practically for
ninety-nine years the Grand Trunk i.s to
haA'e the ad\*antages without the disadvantages of a lease of the Intercolonial.
Sucli stupendous concessions as this are
never granted by one raihvay company
to another without corresponding considerations. One company guaranteeing
the,interest upon the bonds of another
might enter into sucli an arrangement
and think itself fairly compensated by
■getting a monopoly of the other company's business for a century.
It is onlj' fair to tlie house of commons
to assume that this perfectly outrageous
part of the agreement escaped the attention of the members, as it seems to hiiA-'e
been done by CA'erybody. It i.s not easy
of detection, simply appearing as a clause
in an innocent looking traffic agreement,
Avliich howe\'er, is ratified by the bill and
made part of the ninety-nine years' contract. But the duty of the senate is
plain, and once more Canada lias reason
to be thankful that it has a second chamber to detect and correct the blunders of
the lower house.     °
Prospect of a Settlement Diminishing.
■■Washington, June 27.—The negotiations for a modus vivendi regulating the
Alaskan boundary has fallen into a state
that ; jeopardizes a successful outcome,
and causes apprehension among oflicials.
Nothing has been heard from ambassador
Choate as to the results of the conference
he had today with lord Salisbury.' The
latest phase ofthe case Avas that the
Canadians had come back Avith a.countoi'
proposal in place of accepting the American proposition which had been drawn
with tlie sole purpose of preventing any
further . controversy over the points
already agreed upon betAveen Mr. Choate
and lord Salisbury. Instead of following the lines'..'of. the American
proposal and confining the counter proposal to a plain statement of tlie points
already roughly indicated as -marking
tlie boundary, this last issue .proposed.'a
radical change-.in.the.line'.on  the PaltOn
THE FOURTH PAYMENT MADE
On Yellowstone Bond.
Another big payment,  has   been   made
on  the   bond on  the   Yellowstone  mine
near Salmo.    This property was bonded
last fail   for  $50,000 by G. 11. Mickle, lecturer in mining at the  Toronto  University, Avho subsequently turned  his  bond
OA'er Lo a syndicate of eastern capitalists.
When  bonded  the  property   showed  a
ledge of free milling ore of from  ten to
fourteen   feet   wide  on   the surface, but
little  beyond  surface    Avork   had   been
done.      Since   then,   however,   a    large
.amount of development  Avork  has  been
done with gratifying results as this  last
payment sIioavs.    Besides shoAving up the
A'ein on tlie surface for nearly the  entire
length of the claim, tAvo long tunnels, recently connected by a winze, haA'e been
driA-en, proving the existence of a  large
body of ore of good grade.    Besides  this
Avork, the  claim has   been     thoroughly
prospected.    As large a force  of men  as
could be profitably employed  have  been
kept at Avork since the property Avas first
taken  hold   of, and  a  compressor plant
-'was recently installed.
The payment made yesterday Avas ono
of $10,000, the fourth that has been
-made, bringing the total amount paid to
date up to $27,500. It is noteworthy
that this- payment Avas not due until
July 6th. 11. li. T. Haul tain is tlie engineer in charge of tlie Avork, and has
iioav a force of some forty or fifty men at
tlie mine. Dams and flumes are now in
process of construction for tlie purpose
of utilizing the Avater poAver from Wolf
creek close by, Avhieh will be used for
operating the stamp mill, Avhicli -will
probably be erected in the ' near future.
The original owners Avere Billings and Bennet of Salmo. The former avjis in Nelson
yesterday and avjis somewhat surprised
jit the payment being made before it
fell due.
Philadelphia Places a Big Loan.
Philadelphia, June 27.—Thecity loan

Otis Checks Up Correspondents.
New York, June 27.—The press censorship at Manila is attracting a good
deal of attention, not less at Washington
than in other parts of the United Stiites.
General Otis is carrying things, in respect
to newspaper correspondence, with a
higher hand than any other officer has
ventured to in recent years. "He does
uot content himself with . forbidding
the transmission of certain news by cable
from Mauila, but goes to the extreme
leugth of saying Avhat sliall and shall not
be mailed under em*elope and seal. He
has informed the correspondents also
that any one of them who .tries to circumvent his A'igilanee by sending objoc-
tioual matter OA'er for transmission from
Hong Kong will be treated as if the
offence Avas committed in Manila, and
might as well pack liis trunk for home.

government, made by sir Mackenzie
Bowell in the senate, has caller! public

is to say, for ninety-nine 5'ears all controllable freight originating at any [joint

A Mine-Hoist Indicator.  llutte Mining World.  As a means of decreasing the the liability to accidents Avhile hoisting, the use of  an indicator  is .t  valuable, addition to a  mine  hoist.    The  general  practice is to  have such  auxilary  appliances attached  by gearing to the. drum of large hoisting  engines,  but their use  ought to be more  common  in the case  of small hoists.    In  all mines Avhere the employes or material  are   hoisted,  or  lowered   into the mine  shaft   by   cage,  skip'..or'  bucket,   there  should be a target  or indicator to mark  tlie exact location of such load.    The dial.'  or slide of such an indicator, when placed  in clear view and near to the engineer, is  tho best guide for him to go by, in regulating  speed  or stoppage.    Any   means  that correctly aids the driver of tho hoist  in   observing  the  position  of  the load  makes   his    duty   less    burdensome   or  fatiguing to the mental strain produced  by  attending  such Avork,  and decreases  the  chance of accidents.    The attention  of manufacturers of this class .of machinery is called to .this point, and mine"owners-; aud . superintendents  cannot;   err iii.  placing"such a preventive to accidents oii  the mine hoists, it' not"there"already.

CURRENT ItATK OF INTEREST PAID  IN   AN  ARAB   MUSIC   HALL.  The philosopher who observed thatthe  English take their pleasures sadly should  have paid a* visit to an Arab music hall.  lie might have proved equal to the occasion, and, again, lie niight not.  To the unapprcciative Briton the place  is a veritable place of torture. Weird instruments, driven to despair by the hands  or lungs of untiring performers, emit  wild and unearthly sounds, and to the accompaniment of these a band of singers  give vent to doleful sufferings. But we  shall have enough of this later.  There is a European cafe concert in  Cairo, conducted on the familiar lines,  anil here the gilded youth in tarboo.-h  and patent-leather boots-may hob-bob  between the "turns" with fair performers  from France or Italy, or flatter himself  with the conviction he is really seeing  life.  No element of European frivolity, however, clings to the cafe concert of the  East. Seated on divans on a stage at  the end of the room are the performers���  some ten in number���the orchestra and  male singers on the right, the female  singers in the centre and the exponents  of'.the'.eternal'and monotonous dance on  the left. The faces of the lady vocalists  are hidden by the yashmak, but it is apparent that the fair ones are endowed  witli an abundance of adipose tissue, for  in the East, as in the West, a .prima  donna is generally a person of weight.  No .veil, however, likjes tho,faces of the  dancers, who, wheu not actually engaged  in distorting their bodies, puff tiway witli-  enjoyment at tho ubiquitous" cigarette/  The* singing ladies-, wear robes of black,  while the exponents of the "ungraceful  danse du ventre are attired in loose drapery over a tight-fitting flesh-colored-jersey, the whole surmounted by innumerable necklaces of jingling coins.  A dancer with an  indescribable swagger leaves  the divan  and  commences to  posture on  the platform.    A-hum of approbation rises from many of her admir-  - ers, for she is a prime favorite with the  habitues of the hall.    For a solid quarter  of an hour does this brown-faced nympth  continue  her hideous  contortions���hideous  at all events  to persons  of civilized  tastes.     The dance over,  the   vocalists  have another turn, and to the accompaniment of the instruments of torture the  performers  raise  their voices in melancholy song, calculated rather to make the  most cheerful mortal think of his future  state  than  to  enjoy  tho present.    The  ittitle   fingers,  their   c&tfei'no.us   iiioutlis  turned jowqi-d the roof, ligjXin give yeiit  "Wxlolordils cries/tilidntlieirrfaciol expres*  sibiiB betokesii aiiguishtoO deep for words,  Th0    song, .apparently,   is   imeucliu#;  Now a vocalist or7 musician drops out,  presently another follows suit, and by  and  by the" uninitiated begiiisto thiiik  the melody will gradually die away iilto  silence.   But he is b.idly mistaken; no  Hitch good fortune awaits.    Just as the  music seems to be in its last gasp, one of  the resting performers suddenly bursts  out afresh, with startling vigor the stentorian  diallenge is taken  up by his relentless confederates, Mid in the twinkling of an eye the din is louder thainever.  So i the entertainment goes oil, so it has  gone on for many thousands of nights,  and so it will go on until Western ideas  permeate the hind and Egypt turns to  Western amusements.  Throughout the song and throughout  the dance an Arab of piratical mien  walks to and fro among the audience  yelling at the top of his voice. No one  takes the slightest notice of his cries ; no  one asks that he may be ejected for disturbing the peace. This gentleman, indeed, is a part of the show; he fulfils the  important office of mutiab, the peripatetic claquer of the Arab "halls". That he  earns his pay there can be. no doubt.  With a devotion worthy of some great  and noble cause he calls on those there  assembled to bear witness to the magnificence of the entertainment they are enjoying, to the skill of the musicians, the  sweet voices of the singers and the proficiency of the beauteous maiden in the  dance..  The mutiab���the name comes from the  Arabic word of tiab, signifying good���is  an actor himself. At one stage he rolls  his eyes as if beholding some beatific vision ; at another his countenance betokens  dark despair. Then It -'will light again  and be wreathed with smiles, for it is a  Is now prepared io issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atliq, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yu^on, District.  living looking-glass, in which the emotions portrayed by the performers find  exaggerated reflection. The mutiab, arduous though his professional duties be,  has still a keen eye for any liquid refreshments that may come his way. He "may  be a Mohammedan but ho i.s no fanatic.  THE   LAW   OF   MONOPOLY   PRICE.  It is frequently said that the monopolist,  being free from   the compulsion of  competition,  charges whatever price he  pleases.      A  little   reflection,    however,  shows  that this is manifestly incorrect.  Tlie  intelligent  monopolist,   seeking his  own  interest, bears  two things in mind,  namely,  the profit on each  article sold  and the  number of sales, and  he strives  to combine the two in such manner as to  receive the highest total  net gains.   The  monopolist finds his  limit in  the prices  consumers are willing to pay and these  vary greatly.    Sometimes the consumers  are not willing to pay enough for a monopolized article to cover expenses of production.    Sometimes monopoly price, the  price which will yield the highest net return, barely yields normal return to capital.    Everything  depends  upon  the intensity of demand and purchasing power;  There have been those, who perceiving  the limits of the power of monopoly in  self-interest, haA'e drawn  the conclusion  that monopoly gains   tire  not of great  significance ..but this is as. extreme a position  as  those  take who  say  that the  monopolist may charge what he pleases.  The prices of numerous and most important  monopolized  articles,  and services  are far  above the  prices which yield ordinary returns to capital and enterprise ;  and these excessive  returns are precisely  the most  striking feature  in tne present  distribution of wealth.  The limit of monopoly price is due to  the falling off in demand wliich attends  rising price. ��� The monopolist experiments, raising aud lowing prices, until he  hits upon that price which yields highest  net returns. It i.s said that some years  ago the "express companies quite generally lowered prices, but they did not find  that the increased traffic was.sufficientto-  , cover the lower jji-pfit on each part of the  traffic. The managers said, "tlie lower  prices don't pay," but this phrase in the  mouth 'of the monopolist simply means  thatthe lower prices donotyield as large  net returns as the higher prices, lt is in  this sense that three-cent street-car fares  would not pay, although doubtless in our  large cities they would with the increased  traffic thereby occasioned, yield a good  return of capital actually invested.  But the falling off in demand with increase in prices will vary inversely as-the  wealth of a country, especially the general average of wealth in the ease'of widely  consumed commodities and likewise in-  A'ersoly with the readiness with which  wealth is expended. The higher the general average of economic well-being and  the more readily wealth is generally expended, the higher the monopoly charge  which will'yield largest not returns.  It  is thus   that monopoly  prices  are  higher aa a rule in, the United States and  -(_&nada=thau-elsewher^=^-e=ha?e-a=Iiig3i-=  er general average of economic. Well being  .an " " " "  Iu  of a Cent is the street-car fare which  .yields, the highest net returns Avhile in  'NeXs' Fork and Toronto it is five cents.  It is thus also that monopoly has led to  the accumulation of larger fortunes iii  America than elsewhere, for it is in this  country that we have the largest surplus  values....   . . .    '  A Second. Payment Made.  Afoyio Leader, 211.1.,  J.

Wilson of Tbron*  to, president of the "company, and Alexander I-Mdhalii of Grenville, Quebec, the  vice-president. Oil Monday evening tlie  party was joined by E P. Heaton of  Montreal, the general manager of the  Guardian Assurance Company, and one  of the large stockholders in the Canadian  Gold Fields Syndicate. On Tuesday the  party made a thorough examination of  the Lake Shore mine and expressed themselves as more than pleased with the  magnificent showing. The payment due  on July 1st was made Tuesday evening  and on Wednesday Mr. Drewry took possession of the Lake Shore group. Martin  Foley has beeu appointed foreman and he  has been given instructions to push development work as rapidly as possible. Mr.  Drewry has placed a contract Avith tlie  James Cooper Company of Montreal foi'a  seA'en drill Ingersoll-Sergeant compressor  plant of the latest type, and the contract  calls for the plant to be in complete running order by August 1st. Grading for  the compressor building commenced last  .Thursday .morning. The plant is to be a  very complete one and Moyie Avill the  honor   of having   the first   power  drill  plant to be installed in East Kootenay.  A now funnel will be driven in below tlie  present tunnel; the old tunnel will be  equipped with track and ore cars ; a new  ore bin will he erected at the spur which  the Canadian Pacific have already arranged to put on Lake Shore ground and  everything put in shape for active mining by the 1st of August, Avhen at least  forty men will be employed.  Water a Luxury.  People of the Collar mining district,  Western Australia, are suffering great  distress through the failure of their  water holes and artesian avcII, several  having died of thirst. The mines are  closed down at Whightville, Gladstone,  Deptvillo and the Peak, and the hundreds  of men thus thrown out of employment  find themselves unable to pay the exorbitant prices demanded.for water for the  use of their families. The present charge  is one shilling per gallon for Avater at the  nearest reliable source of supply, and  from seven shillings six pence to nine  shillings six pence added for delivery,  making the actual cost from eight shillings six pence to ten shillings six pence a  gallon. Iu their distress the residents  have appealed to the government to undertake a free delivery of water from  Nyngan, Avhere the municipality of Cobar  FULL LINE OF  would gladly pay the price asked by the  sister    'municipality. Superintendent  Creer  of the colonial labor   bureau is to  report immediately upon the proposition.  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  HUiAlK.  W. H.

Mr.  Pope is interested in the Knob Hiil and  Ironsides niines near Greenwood and also  in the Molly Gibson near this eity. lie  stated that the Knob Hill and Ironsides  were all that had been said of them, and  that in the former an immense amount  of ore has been blocked out which averages $17 a ton. The C. P. 11. are building  a spur from the main line to the mine,  which is already graded, and the ore will  be taken thence by rail via Eholt to  Grand Forks, a distance of about twenty  miles, where the company is erecting a  smelter, to be called the Granby smelter.  Work on the construction of this smelter  has bctfun, the first sod being turned  yesterday. The plant will probably be-  in operation by the first of next year.  Mr. Pope intends A*isiting the Molly Gibson before he goes if the snow permits..

It has been decided to have the excavation for the entire block about to be  erected on Baker street by P. Burns &  Co. done at once, instead of half at a  time, as originally intended. This has  necessitated the calling for fresh tenders.  David G. Browne, collector of customs  at Great Kails, and Charles S.
