 TRAMWAY ROUTE IS APPROVED  Coristruction to Commence.  Tlie plan submitted by tlie tramway  company, showing the proposed route  foi-a distance of two, miles within the  city limits, was approved of by the  members of tlie city council yesterday,  and construction upon the outlaying  sections of the same will be commenced at  once, subject of course to the provisions  of the tramway bylaw and upon the  signing of a contract by the company to  comply with the same.  The plan .submitted does not disclose  the entire system wliich the company  proposes to put in but merely two miles  of the line which the company is required to build inside the city limits within a  given time. As shown on the plan noth-  in the way of a belt line is disclosed.  The road commences at the eastern  boundary of the city on Water street  and runs along Water and l<Yont streets  to Ward street,' thus reaching the city  wharf. From Ward and Front streets  the line runs up Ward strest to Vernon,  east on Vernon to .Josephine and up  Josephine street to Baker. From the  corner of Josephine and Baker the line  runs west on Baker street to Railway  street, which is about two full blocks  from the present C. P. R. depot. The  line up the hill to the residential portion  of the eity runs up Stanley street from  the corner of Baker to the Mines road ;  here it turns west on the Mines road to  Kootenay street and up Kootenay street  to Houston street, thus avoiding the  heavy grade at the head of Stanley  street. From the corner of Houston and  Kootenay streets the line runs along  Houston street to a point between  Stanley and Ward streets and stops  there.  For purposes of their own the tramway company has divided its two mile  system into three sections. Route No. 1  contemplates construction from block 71  to Front street, thence southwest on  i*''ronb street to Ward street, crossing  Josephine street, thence south on Ward  to; Vernon, thence east on Vernon to  Josephine, south on Josephine street to  Baker, thence west on Baker to Railway  crossing Ward, Stanley, Kootenay and  Falls streets.  Route No. 2 starts from the end of  route No. 1 on Front street and runs  north east on Front Street to Water  street, crossing Hall, Hendryx, Cedar aud  Park streets, and thence east on Water  street  to  tho eastern  boundary of the  - eity, crossing Gherry, Willow and  Popo-  lar streets."   ��� <;  Route No. 3 connects with route No, L  at the intersection of Baker .and Stanley  streets and' continues south on Stanley  .street to-tho Hall "Mines road, crossing  Victoria, Silicia, Gorbonatc and Latimer  streets, thence west on the,Mines road to  Kootenay street, thence south on Kootenay street to Houston street crossing  Hoover, Observatory, Robson, Gore and  Innes streets, thence east on Houston  . street crossing Stanley street to a, point  between Stanley and Ward streets.  - * C. Halifax Hall and F. W. Peters were  asked what provision they intended to  'make in the way of providing a car service for the people living in the eastern  portion of the city in the vicinity of Mill  aiid Latimer streets, but they declined to  take the council into tlieir confidence to  this extent. Mr. Peters said that the  company contemplated an eastern extension to the system, biit added that so far  as the company knew at present Josephine street was the only oue which the  company could use to get down  the hill.  Tlie request of the tramway company  that tlie  city  should  pay one-half the  -cost-of-taking-out-froin-OOO-to-SOO-cubic-  yards of rock from the Josephine or Victoria street bluffs was then taken up,  i     Alderman Fletcher was not in favor of  �� tlie suggestion.    He said tliat the funds  ! at the council's disposal were virtually  . all, expeuded and the council could not  i afford to tafee in liand the opening  up of  ,; any additional streets.    He added that it  } would be cheaper for th�� train way com-  ��� pany to take  rock froin  either  the Vic-  j tosia   t>r   Josephine   street Muffs   than  ��� ifpm any other place, and that should be  '; taken into account.  1     Aldorinan Thomson suggested that the  I city sliould pay tho ti-awway company  $100 upon their removing (500 cubic yards  I of rOeh from the Victoria street bluff uii-  ��� der the supervision of the city engineer.  '    Tliis did not suit the .tramway  repre-  ! seutatives, and  it was  decided to leave  j the question open, it being understood  , that the tramway company should have  >��� the right to take the rock from  the Victoria   street   bluff,  and  that  it   should  ; trust to the "generosity of the city to  make such allowauce as the work was  considered to be worth from the improvement inade to the street.  The question of repairing the Baker  street bridge was then taken up. In the  first place the company requested that  the eity should fix up this portion of the  roadbed, and wheu this was declined it  was proposed that the city should do the  work to its satisfaction and charge the  amount of the same to the tramway  company. The council declined to take  any action in the matter, as there is a  prospect of having a solid roadbed across,  the Ward creek ravine within a few  weeks. In the meantime the tramway  company will be forced to get on as best  it can and make a transfer across the  bridge if necessary. ���   -.. y  . C. Halifax Hall,the-tramway.company's'-  engineer,  says  the  company  will  start  >.  Ol  Mi  WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 2(1,  1800.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $Z.  work right away, though tracklaying  will not begin at once. The first work  will be on Kootenay street and other outlying and comparatively unused streets,  and will consist of levelling off the ground,  making fills and generally getting the  roads i.i shape. The foreman of thecom-  p.-iiiy. Anson Porter, was out yesterday  loiiking over the ground. Porter was  recently foreman on tjie Crow's Nest  Pass road and has had experience in  tramway construction in Cornwall and  elsewhere. 'Che actual tracklaying will  begin near lho city wharf ..and. will be  continued up Water street past the  jail. The work of trenching and track-  laying will be proceeded with simultaneously to minimize the danger of an open  trench on the street. A certain amount  of trenching will be done, and then a  push car laden with ties, rails and fastenings will be broughtup. That piece of  track,will be laid and then more trenching.will be proceeded with and so on.  On streets like Baker street where the  soil is liglit and sandy, the road will be  ballasted with rock to a depth of about  eight inches, necessitating the digging of  a trench twenty inches deep, but where  the road is of gravel this ballasting will  not be necessary to the same extent.  The company intend to build a road  whieli will be in all respects a permanent  one, and no scamped work will be allowed.  The contracts for the supply of the  cars and overhead electrical service and  other accessories will be let at the end of  the month, and L. A. Campbell of Bonnington Falls will look after this department. The cars will be of the latest design, warmed by electricity, with safety  fenders and all the newest devices for the  convenience and safety of the passengers.  The company has not decided wliere  future extensions of the system will run,  but the two miles of road submitted to  the council have been so. arranged as to  fit into a grand trunk scheme which will  embrace the whole.city.  Dynamite Monopoly Killed Kruger.  London, July 25.���The reports regarding the resignation of president Kruger  of tiie South- African Republic are conflicting, but according to the best Mnfo'r-  niation Kruger has actually resigned  office. j The volksraad, while maintaining'  its opposition to. president Kruger's'  views on the dynamite concession, has  given its assurance that it still has the  utmost confidence in president Kruger,  and it is believed-he may. withdraw his  resignation. As to the difference of  opinion on the question -of the" dynamite  concession, general P. J. Joubert, vice-  president of the republic, and the majority of the volksraad favor the cancellation bf the "monopoly, while Kruger supports it. The majority of the volksraad  desires to buy out the company.  Cable From Africa to Australia.

Another deal in Slocan properties  which has been pending for some time  has been closed The Galena Farm group  has been purchased by A. AV. McCune of  Salt Lake and W. L. Hoge of Anaconda.  The amount involved is not known, but  is understood to be a large sum. The following is what the Salt Lake City Herald  has to say about the deal:  "A deal has just been consummated by  which a group of claims near Slocan lake,  Kootenay district, British Columbia,  known as the Galena Farm group passes  into the hands of A. W. McCune of this  city and W. L. Hoge of Anaconda, Montana. This property is situated iu the  Silverton camp in the famous Slocan district. The property has been in the control of an English company, and has been  rather poorly managed of late. The  Englishmen have spent over $200,000 in  developing the property. The Galena  Farm is what would be considered a very  high grade silver and lead proposition in  this state. The mine has been a producer for some time, and under the new  management the output will be greatly  increased. When seen about the matter  yesterday, Mr,*McCune admitted having  made the purchase, but declined to state  what price was paid for the property.  He states that a concentrator of at least  50 tons capacity would be put up immediately, and that this would probably  be enlarged iu the near future."  THE TOWNS AND THE DISTRICT  Unanimously in Favor ofthe Cable.  Ottawa, July 25.���In the commons today postmaster-general Mulock moved  the house into committee on the resolution regarding the Pacific cable. He said  that Canada would have two representatives on the board, Great Britain three and  the Australian colonies three. He spoke  of the work as being of national interest.  Sir Charles Tupper congratulated Mr.  Mulock for the lucid and clear manner in  which he had put his resolution. Ho also  congratulated the government for being.  able to induce the government of- Great  Britain to aid in the enterprise. '  Mr. Cliarlton thought there were other  enterprises such as the Hudson's Bay  railway,' Yukon railway, and the Ottawa  and-Gcorgian Bay caifal, that were ?nore  deserving of attention. He however  would not oppose the scheme. Messrs.  Craig and Osier supported the scheme.  Messenger Boys Out on Strike.  -New York, July 25.���About 300 boys  of the American District Telegraph'Company rode up Broadway about, noon today and stopped'at all the offices of the  company on the street, giving the police  a lot of trouble.

Banning Was Well Known Here.  Frank Dick of Slocan City left Nelson  this morning for Republic where he goes  to take charge of the body of \V. W.  Banning who was murdered in Republic  on Sunday afternoon. The deceased was  Avell known in Nelson. He came hero  from Winnipeg in February, 1807 and for  close upon a year was manager of G. O.  Buchanan's Nelson lumber yard. The  body will be brought to Nelson where-it  will be taken in charge by Dr. C. P. Banning of Winnipeg a. brother of the deceased.  The account of the murder which  was  sent from  Republic  says;     About   five  this afternoon W. Banning was found insensible on the bluff overlooking Granite  creek, three blocks west of the  Republic  bank.    His skull had been crushed in two  places, evidently with a ragged  rock, as  both places had cut  through  the  crown  of his hat.    There was evidence  that  he  had been slugged about twelve feet from  the spot where the first blood  was  discovered.    It  appears  that he had gone  some yards from the cabin and   was  sitting under a tree, reading a Montgomery,  Ward  & Company  catalogue  wheu the  assasin slipped up  and struck  him.    lie  was Avell known and highly respected by  all. It is not known that he had any enemies. The theory is advanced thatthe object  was robbery, but it is probable  that his  assailant was scared away before he had  time to rifle his victim's pockets, Eighty-  six dollars and two gold watches were  taken  from  his  person  by the  officers.  There   is   no  clue  to the  perpetrators.  There are several families living within a  few hundred feet of where the crime was  committed, wliich  is  only  a block from  the   Catholic   church,    a   livery   stable  and hospital.

At the meeting of the city council yesterday afternoon the gas company Avas  given permission to use both Baker and  Vernon streets in tho laying of its gas  mains. There Avas no protest from any  member of the council, the general opinion being that a very good bargain Avas  made iu requiring the company to lay  connection-'- to every lot on Baker street  between Falls and Hall streets,  and to every lot on Vernon street  between Ward and Hall streets. These  connections are .-ill to be brought to the  inside of the curb so that if no leaks happen to the company's pipes there is a  prospect that the streets will not be dug  up every day.  Alderman Fletcher brought up the action of the Turner government in giving  the Hall Mines, Limited a deed to a piece  of hind in the Cottoinvood-Smith -flat,  which included the roadways on Silica,  Railway and Slocan streets. He made a_;  motion to the effect that the city clerk  should write a letter to the chief commis-  sionei: of lands and works and ask for information Avith respect to the closing of  the streets in question, and also to inform  the chief commissioner that the action of  the former government had the effect of  closing a public higlnvay Avhieh had been  in use for oArer fifteen years.

Great  Britain he said "now seems Avilling to consider the proposal ofthe United States  to give Canada the privilege of a. port of  entry the Dominion while retaining absolute sovereignty over the Lynn canal  and it is around this sort of a proposition  that the hope of a settlement uoav hovers.

A Cleveland, Ohio, merchant, who i.s a
bibliophile on the side, was in New York
recently in quest of a rarity. He had
heard of an authentic first-edition copy
of the first book ever printed, and made
his wants known to tlie clerk. "Please
let me see your Guttenborg bible," lie
said. And the clerk promptly said to a
.junior assistant: "Run out, boy. and get
the gentleman a copy of today's racing
schedule." ■•_	
George Selwyn liad a strange passion
for seeing dead bodies, especially those
of his friends. He would go any distance
to gratify this pursuit. Lord Holland
was laid up very ill at" Holland house
shortly before his death. George Selwyn
sent to ask how lie was, and whether he
would like to see him. "Oh, by all
means !" lord Holland answered. "If I'm
alive tomorrow I shall be delighted to see
George, and I know that if I am dead he
will be delighted to see me."

the florist who 1*hew Mm well, to choose

that wlien tlie eonipany of mourners Wa.-

Castelaf, the most voluble, of talkers,
was one of a party of tAventy jieople wh.o
sat down at table one evening, and until
tlie end of dinner he talked the Avhole
time. No one had been able to get iii a
Avord edgeways. This greatly disgusted
M. Delpech, the French cabinet minister,
Who was fond of hearing the sound of liis
own voice. At length tliere came a pause
in the conversation. Castelar was in the*
act of rinsing his mouth. Delpech seized
the only opportunity that he had
throughout the dinner of placing his little remark. Castelar, with his nose still
in the finger-bowl, stared at him Avith undisguised astonishment. Just before
they rose from the table, lie turned to a
friend and asked : "That M. Delpech—
is he a lawyer ?" "No," Avas the reply ;
"why do you ask ?" "Because he is such
a terrible chatterbox," said Castelar.
had fallen asleep. Frowning Avith indignation, lie motioned to one of the court
officials,, and iu a few seconds the shun-
bt-rer uii- .shaken rudely into consciousness, lie was a fat, timid-looking man,
and was so mortified and aghast at the
enormity of liis olTcnse that he could
hardly find words in which to reply to
the sharp questions of the judge. Finally he managed to blurt out that he could
not help do/Jug off whenever it was wai-m
and crowded. "If the gentleman always
sleeps Avhere it is warm and crowded,"
said Vooi-hees, majestically, "the gentlemen -will no doubt enjoy himseiy hugely
in Hades." There was a roar of laughter
but the fat man swung the jury against
Voorhees's client.
Wlien Mrs. Smith decided to give a tea,
she promised Mary, her cook, an extra
Aveek's wages if she would do her best to
make the affair a success. Finding that
she would need a girl to help serve the
tea, she asked Mary if she knew of any
one that she could get. "Sure, mum,"
answered Mary; "there's me sister,
Avhat's used to Avaitin', and who'll be glad
to get the chance, for she's a poor gurl
just out of a job." As Mary herself Avas
a jewel, Mrs. Smith did not question her
further, and Mary received orders to
have her sister on hand. Mary's sister
reported for duty, and Mrs. Smith gave
her minute instructions Iioav she. should
act, Avishing to give the guests the im.
pression that she Avas a regular member
of the household. Things Avent on swimmingly -. until Mary's sister, seeing that
one of the guests was out of tea, came up
and wanted to know if the lady avouIcI
have "anither." The guest smilingly .answered that she AA'ould, Avhereupon Mary's
sister, suatehing up the cup, bawled
across the room in the most approved
cheap-restaurant code, "DraAv one!"
NeAvport has more poAver to check it than
the combined effort of the Christian
churches from Maine to the Pacific Coast.
The offenders do not care for the censure
of the church, but they do care for the
censure of society, and society can deal
a crushing IjIoav to the divorce evil simply by visiting the divorcees Avith
A Figure in Politics.
Toronto Telegram.
It Avas the fortune of the late Christopher Alphonse Geoifrion to be a decided influence in Canadian politics in
the closing years of his life. Vereheres
Avas tho battle ground on which the issue
of Remedial legislation Avas decided. The
death of Hon. Felix Geoifrion, avIio defeated sir George E. Cartier in that constituency, gaA'e the BoavcII government a.
splendid opportunity to test the efficacy
of the Remedial order in Quebec. The
bye-election was brought on, and Hon. J.
A. Ouimet boasted that he would " present sir.IMacken/.ie BoAvell Avith that fine
old Rouge county of Vereheres as the
first fruits of his Manitoba school policy."
Vereheres and Geoffriou, the Rouge constituency and the Rouge family, seemed
to be inseparable, and the claims of party
allegiance and the impulses of family
pride pulled doAvn and drove C. A.
Geoffriou into the fight. , A picturesque
figure Avas this great laAvyer fighting tlie
battles of Liberalism among his compatriots and oA'crcoming with the smiles and
laughter of his genial nature the solemn
appeals on behalf of the remedial government at Ottawa. He was a GeolTrion.
and Vereheres Avas still Vereheres. His
election inspired Laurier to move the six!
months' hoist, and avus the beginning of
the end of Conservative supremacy in
the Dominion.

that divorce is on the incrtiilise. The
rieAA-spt-per"s show it and $tafeti($s iiiake
it clear, Tlie Rey. Mr. Mu'hiiitoii said:
"The evil is a loathsoine one-i-s-o Joathr
soine thai I dislike to sifoajv qf it. There
is jiothing move horrifying, more detestable, than the spectafcle of a niaii deiiber-
ately plotting,, not only to AVreek
another's happiness but to bring sliame
upon her innocent children J and the sin
is none the less AA'hen: the offender,, as is
sonietiines the case, is a AA'omau8 The
hoine is the unit of the nation's moral
strength, and the .home must be pre-
sei'A'ed. Tlie man; or Avoman avIio assails
the happiness' of One home does uot
strike at it alone,, but at the very foundation of onr social and moral sfcrueiiii-O. I
must say that society does not look favorably upon divorcees.. Its attitude is one
of pity father than encouragement.
People dislike to utterly repudiate their
relatives or those'"Avhom they have loved
as friends, and so the offenders are first
received by the lew, and then tolerated
by the many. Then the audacity of tlie
offenders themselves conies to their aid.
They persevere, and, so to speak, cheek it
out, until at last their offense is lu a
great measure forgotten. After a time,
when another diA'orce occurs, these
earlier divorcees are able to give countenance to the neAver offenders, and so the
influence in favor of toleration progresses. It is time iioav that it should be
giA'en a check, aud there is no Society so
capable of making its restraining influence felt as that of.NeAvport. I do not
meau to say that the evil pre\rails in
Ne.vport   more   than    elsewhere.      But

A. meeting of the license commissioners  for the Ainsworth license district was  held at Kaslo Monday evening, wlien the  application ol' Airs. JMargarcb AleLellaii,  for a hotel license for tlie Anglo-American hotel at Ainsworth, was granted.  Daniel IMeLean of Ainsworth was taken  to the Westminster insane asylum this  morning by W. II. -Bullock-Webster oi'  the provincial police department.  A deal was consummated yesterday  whereby .1. Laing Stocks, secretary of  the Duncan Alines, l_iiniteil, acquired a  half interest in the .Hlack Prince, adjoining the .Paradiseon Korty nine creek, and  a quarter interest in the Monument No.  Three from Joe. Dtihamcl of this city.  Air. Stocks was acting for himself and  not for the company. The consideration  was uot made public.  F. Al. Chadbourn has returned from his  trip through the Goat Iliver district  where he went to collect mineral exhibits for the Paris exhibition. He got  several at Port Hill, and arranged witli  W. P. Sloane of Creston for a representative collection from that section. He expects to get 40 samples from there. He  has engaged John Perkins of this city to  go around to the mines in this A'icinity  that are not yet represented, and get  specimens. He starts out today. Air.  Chadbourn expects to havo a very complete and representative collection by  the time provincial mineralogist comes  round again. ���  T. G*. Proctor, who has just returned  from Balfour, states that there is no  doubt that George Johnston, .whose reported death was chronicled in Ti-ii_  Trii!UNI_, was drowned by upsetting his  row boat. It appeal's that the deceased  was liable to seizures, and that one of  these attacks brought about the catastrophe.  J. Duhamel, who has just returned  from a, prospecting trip through the  Boundary country, reports that not a  single mine has been closed down owiug  to the eight hour law. They are all paying $3.50 for au eight-hour day and  would take on more men if they could  get them, but miners are scarce. While  While there he and his partner J. Perkins  located the Nelson No. 1 and the Nelson  No. 2 on Rock creek. The claims are an  immense blow out of copper.

II. 11. Bellamy returned last night from  Wild Horse creek, in the Ymir district,  where he put a force of men at development work on the Boyal Oak mineral  claim, wliich is thought to have the  lead of the Ymir mine.
