At Last Night's  Council  Meeting.
Alderman Beer was tlie only absentee
at last evening's session of the eity council when alderman II. B. Thomson handed
in his resignation, coupled with the intimation that he proposed leaving the
city about August 5th foi1 Cariboo. No
action was taken upon the resignation
and the probabilities are that matters
will be so arranged that alderman Thomson Avill be granted sufficient leave of
absence to carry him through the balance
ol' his term.
The report ol' the finance- committee
was read recommending (In- payment of
accounts amounting to close upon $3000.
The conimittee referred t.o the council
the account of the Minor Printing & Publishing Company of $120 for 1.200 copies
o. the Miner's "special." The reference,
of the account to the council created considerable fun at the expense of the publishers of the "special." It also developed in the talk which followed that tlie
Miner company had not complied with
the terms of the council's oiler although
furnished with a copy of the resolution
on the same day that it was passed by
the council.
Several members of the council expressed the opinion that the creation of
the Miner company did not conform to
the conditions imposed by the council in
its offer of assistance and the matter was
disposed of for the present by alderman
Hillyer who moved that the account be
laid over until the next meeting of the
Two tenders were received for the construction of the sewer on Arictoria street
between Ward and Josephine. The first
was from .Josiah Thompson. His figures
were 74 J cents for earth and $s5.f50 for
rock. The tender of IL II. McDonald was
1~) cents for earth and $0 for rock. The
two tenders -were referred to the public
works committee with power to act.
The throe debenture bylaws were then
reconsidered and finally passed, on ' motion's by aldermen'Thomson and  Hillyer.
Messrs. Macdonald & .Johnson's bill of
costs was referred to the city solicitor.
C. W. West & Co's application that
.Falls street from Baker to Silica street
be graded was referred to the city engineer.
The application for a water 7_>ain on
Hall street fl-om Latimer to Hoover was
referred to the public  works  committee.
A ■.-communication was read from
Messrs. Crease <fc Crease, solicitors for the
Kaslo. The crown grant for this lot
shows the boundary on the easterly side
as being Kootenay lake. A part of this
lot has been laid out as a townsite. A
groat dill", reuce exists between the high
ami lowwaier mark in the lake, Avhicli is
sail lo haw as much as fourteen feet and
upwards \ ertical rise. The plaintiff
ei.iii:i: d ,ii riparian owner the right to
lay out 1 its on the land laid bare at low
water, and to exclude anyone else from
eroding any structures which would interfere with free access to the water.
Tlio defendant company oavu two lots
in this towu.-ile, partly above high water,
and they are erecting a wharf for the
use of (heir steamers on land which the
plaintiff has laid out in town lots. The
defendants claim tliat from tiie field
notes of the survey it is apparent that
the high, water line was token as the
boundary, tliere being 400 feet between
this line and low water in places. They
also contended that foreshore rights belong to the Dominion and not to the province.
Justice Drake declined to express an
opinion as to what rights the plaintiff
may have as riparian owner, but decided
the plaintiff is entitled to have free access
to tlie "water, and that the defendant's
wharf and piling interfered with this.
The questions which arise in-the action
arc of considerable importance and can
only be settled at the trial. The injunction is granted untiL-the trial, but in the
meantime the defendants are entitled to
use the -wharf as heretofore for landing
goods and passengers.

Aspires to be a Dictator.
Paris, July 17.—On of the chief questions now occupying public attention in
Paris is whether or not there has been or
is now an Orleanist plot to overturn the
republic. The really important feature
of the question,, however, is whether or
not M. Paul Deroulede is in the pay of
the duke of Orleans. ' The deputy denies
this indignantly, but there is no doubt
that liis intentions are not so pure as he

Fire Limits Case Adjourned.
The case against E. C. TraA-es for erecting a wooden building Avithin the fire
limits came up before police magistrate
Crease yesterday, and the evidence of
the city engineer and the city clerk was
taken. After the case had been proceeding for about an hour it appeared there
were two informations before the court,
and the council were acting at cross purposes. Au information had been laid
against TraA'es for not supplying the
city with lines and levels a.s provided by
the bylaw, and S. S. Taylor^was prepared
to fight it. Another information had
been laid for erecting a neAV building
within the fire limits contrary to the
byhiws, and W. A. Galliher, avIio had
just retured to town, Avas prosecuting
under this one, being under the impression that the first information had
been formally withdrawn. It had not'
been AvithdraAvn, hoAveyer, nor had the
defendant been served Avith a copy of it.
After some argument the original information Avas dismissed by consent, the
new one properly ser\*ed and the case
will be gone into again this morning at
10 o'clock. _-

Shipping Zinc Ore.
Five carloads of ore carrying a high
percentage of y.iuc passed through Nelson on Sunday consigned to 11. A. Brown,
Filsmcre, I.ngland. The ore aviis billed to
lOverett, Washington, via the CI*.II., and
goes thence to Kngland in ballast round
the Horn. Mr. Brown i.s the Mritish Columbia representative of the Smelting
Corporation, an Knglish company that
has recently erected large works on tho
Manchester ship canal. The company
controls ji new process for tho treatment
of /.inc-boaring ore, AvhicJi enables it to
treat such ores Avithout charging the
usual penalty on the over percentage of

Ainsworth'- districts, the ore of Avhieh
carries a high percentage of zinc, and
the above shipment is the first of many
that Avill surely folloAv.
Mining Industry Forging Ahead.
The number of records made in the
ruining recorder's office for the Ivottlo
riA-er mining division for the first half of
the present year sIioavs that the mining
industry is forging ahead. The records,
especially tlie number of certificates of
Avork, are greatly in excess of the number, for the first half of last year, and
this is encouraging, as it shows that the
rescources of the district are being steadily deA'eloped. Of records of mineral
claims, some 483 Avere made, of certificates of Avork some 329, while the number
of free miners' certificates of all denominations totals in excess of 1100, thereby
showing'that the mining population is on
the increase. A very . considerable
amount of mining property has changed
hands during the six'months just passed,'
and altogether the year promises to be a
phenomenal one as far as the Kettle river
division is concerned.

rates will be in force, and the existing
tariff has been reduced one-third and in
some cases one-half. The merchants over
there had been holding back tlieir orders
until the; rales were settled, and a big
rush of freight is now expected. Mr.
Peters also went into Republic and made
arrangements with the United States
customs oflicials for the handling of
freight into that section. He expects
the Canadian Pacific railway will do a
big business there. The line will be completed into Cascade by the 10th of August, and will reach Grand Forks by the
latter end of that month. . When leaving

Ainsworth, July 17.-—Although there
were many predictions some AA'eeks ago
that the enforcement of the eight-hour
laAV Avould bring eA'erything to a standstill in this camp, the experience of the
past month has not borne this out. There
are now more nien Avorking in the mines
of the camp than for several months and
the immediate prospect is brighter than
for several years. -..
Work is going ahead at the Tariffcnime,
but it is reported Mint an Knglish syndicate is negotiating for the purchase of
all the interests of IVank Heap in the
camp. This would include theTarifTand
the Pontine group as well as a mercantile
business at Ainsworth. Should the deal
go through Heap will go to South Africa.
On the Little Phil property there is a
force of from Ifi to 20 men at Avork. The
general impression is that the Trail
smelter has acquired an interest in the
Little Phil, and that it Avill be Avorked
steadily for the purpose of keeping up
the smelter's reseiwe of lead ores. Already there are over 100 tons of ore on
the dump ready for shipment.
Maxwell StoA'enson has° about 30 men
Avorking on the Highlander long tunnel
and other Avork. Half the force is at
Avork in the tunnel itself. TAvelve inch
timbers arc being used in this tunnel .
AA'hich is eight feet in the clear. The
compressor is not yet ■'-.ready, for use, so,
the tunnel is being driven by hand.
There is also a deal pending for the
sale of the Highland property, which has
been held idle for', several "years. It is
said that the owners have been offered
$100,000 cash, or $130,000 on a bond with;--'-
a first payment of $15,000. The owners
are supposed to be holding out for $150,-
000 011 a bond with a $50,000 cash payment. There is room enough to 'work..:
100 men in the-Highland at o»ce. Tliere
arc 1300 feet of drifting on the vein and
upraises aggregating OA'er 500 feet, besides several crosscuts.
On the Star property there are  about 'y
ten men at Avork sinking. ■ This"property.
is near the  No.   1.    The latter has been
pumped  out  and  sinking has  been   re-:;
sumed.    There are about fifteen men at
the mine.

The people  of l.ritish Columbia can stand a double  dose of such "ruin."  Till.

The Review knows that there is one law  in the Yukon for Americans ami Canadians. The government collects a royalty on the gold mined. The Canadian  minor pays the royalty just as grudgingly as does the American miner, but he  has to pay it just the same. Canada  treats American miners as liberally as  she treats her own sons, but Americans  of which the Review is a mouthpiece  tire hogs. .    v  Mil. Justice!

Deadman's Island question lias  nothing whatever to do with tlie embroglio existing between premier Semlin, finance minister Cotton and attorney-general Martin. Every intelligent citizen in Vancouver i. aware of this. The discordant ministers split.  on nthcr topics, and The Tribune is perfectly well aware  of this. That, jouron., however, is but an ^insignificant  pollywog���11 confirmed faultfinder, ahvays dealing in  acrimonious assertions, the truthfulness of wliich arc always qiieslioncd by its contemporaries'. It is the mouthpiece���the special pocket organ���of a disgruntled indi vi>  ���dual, who for sonic time was even more iMTog'.nt and  dictatorial than the mo.t detested Czar that overIh'ed  in Russia, Or that most notorious of all civic corrupt ion-  isl*, the late .William Tweed of New York. Bill the end  of his tether wan reached;and great has been his fall.  The   above, is   from    the   Vancouver  1 *.  World. If. the Deadman Island dispute,  ���it is not a question���has nothing whatever to dp Avith the quarrel 'between" Vancouver's tAvo members in the Semlin government, then what started the quarrel?  This Trihuni. contends that had Vancou-,  ver not been represented in the Semlin  government, the government would not  ���noW'be in trouble, for the people of the  province outside of Vancouver nevOr obtrude their local disputes on their neighbors. As to the personal reflections on  the editor of Tin. Ti.ii.UNi-., the editor of  the World will never have a chance to be  either a Czar or a Tweed. The people oE  Vancouver know him too well, lie cannot even be a senator by appointment.  Tiik managers and owners of the  closed-down mines in the Slocan must  feel a trifle lonesome Avhen they see mines  all around them hives of industry and just  a little bit "sore" when they hear of mines  in adjacent districts Avorking full forces.

Northward  i 11 the Trout Lake and llovelstake mining divisions and soutlnvard in the Slocan City and AinsAvorth and Nelson and  Hosslaud divisions more men are employed than ever before, and at no mine  except one (the Ymir, near the toAvn of  Ymir') has the rate of wages been arbitrarily cut for the eight-hour day. Yet  the Slocan mines ha\:q been advertised jis  the.richest on the Pacific .Coast.and, their  dividends as the*"largest over paid for  the amount1, of capital iiivested. Tho  managers and oaviioi's of these wonderful'  properties have neither gratitude nor  shame. If they- had gratitude they  would not have closed down, and if they  had  shame  tliey* would  get out of the  country.         r  Over 5000 able-bodied men are Avorking in and about the mines and smelters  in lvootenay and*Yale districts, at wages  ranging from $2.50 to .$3 for laborers and  $3 to $3.50 for miners.

Ho put the cuke  aside and set all his  powerful machinery  to work to find  out avIio Avas at the bottom of the plot.    The  investigation was  partly successful, the  crime being traced  to three men, of Avhom one, at least, Avas  absolutely guilty.    Li hud the trio arrested  and brought to   his  Yamen.    When  they arrived thoy were ushered into liis"  presence and 'were received in his courtliest manner.    The   cake   was produced  Avith tho remark tliat "politeness forbade  his  tasting it until  the  three  generous  donors had had an opportunity to enjoy  its excellence."    Li out the  cake and one  -of his servitors handed it to the uivwilling  guests.    Each took   a  piece and   ate,  or  pretended  to eafc it.    One crumbled the  pieces and let  them fall  upon the floor,  but  the other tAvo  ate  calmly,  Avithout  manifesting  any emotion.    Ten minutes  and the  Iavo men  began to  show symptoms of suffering.    Li smiled benignant-  ly   and said  to   the man   avIio  had  not  eaten :    "Your wisdom is so great thab I  am compelled to preserve your head as-a  souA'enir to transceiident genius."      -   . ,  The  man wus  removed and promptly  decapitated'.    To  the other tAvo the premier  remarked : "The cake that you are  eating-is- not the- one you  sent, but "one  which"���! had my cook imitate. Tlie'poison  r from which yoii"are suffering exists only  in your  imagination." ,1 know of no way  to.cure  your present pain except .by letting you   share tho   same" fate   as your  friend who has just left the room."

Only those who have devoted serious  study and long practice to the game can  comprehend fully the interest and enthusiasm Avhicli attend bhe sessions of the  congress of the American AArhist league  this Aveek.

It  is a contest of wits, employing actively  the fttculbieS pf memory, reasoning and  perception.

It is not to be doubted, too,, that eA'er since American whist  was put on a scientific basis this interest  is becoming more general.

In the up-  country town of Hingoli, in Deccan, is a  cotton-gihhiug mill owned by natives.-  One of the proprietors, a Parsee named  NoAvrojee,, looks after the engines .and  machinery of tlio mill: Lately, the machinery lias not been working Avell, and  the engine" in particular has been giving  considerable trouble. The native engineers seem to haA'e got it into their heads  that the engine AAras really driven by a  -gocl which took the form of steam.  'When it AVent wrong they thought, the  god was angry and needed propitiating  by tlie sacrifice of a human being. One  night a Hindu laborer named Govindah  aviis passing the mill. Some.

President McKinley has approved the  sentence of the court-martial iu bhe case  of captain .John M. Nua.ll, .Fourth cavalry,  and the officer has been ordered dismissed  from bhe service. The papers have been  in the president's hands but a few Aveeks.  Captain Neall misappropriated $1000 of  bhe mess fund of his company at bhe  Presidio in San Francisco. Tliis sum,  Avhicli never belonged to bhe government,  the captain paid back. The papers in  tlie case of captain Oberlin M." Carter,  convicted by court-martial of misappropriating $.1,000,000 of government funds,  are still in the hands of attorney-general  Griggs for review. These findings already had been revioAved six times. Captain Carter was convicted on May 12th,  1898. He Avas sentenced to dismissal  from the army, imprisonment for five  years and a fine of $5000. His crime and  disgrace Avere also to be published in tlie  newspapei-s of his home town for one  year. -'.Captain Carter is still'drawing-his  pay and enjoying his vacation. The influence Avhieh protects him is one of the  mysteries of the McKinley administration.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  SII/VI...   KINO.  K. .1. Tlininp .on, Silver | .1. U.l11i..{1i<:i.
