 A BUNCH CF REFORM BYLAWS  Meet With Disaster.  Alderman Beer's bunch of reform bylaws were given a black oyo at; tho meeting of tho city council last evening.  While in committee the Sunday closing  bylaw was given the six-months' hoist,  the house numbering bylaw was laid over  until some idea could be secured as to the  cost of carrying it out, and the others  after being reported complete from committee were knocked out on the ground  of irregularity in that they were introduced at a special meeting of the council  instead of a regular meeting. The fight  upon the bylaws began with the motion  that the council should go'into committee upon them. Alderman Beer  moved that alderman Fletcher take the  chair, and the chairman of tho public  works committee moved in amendment  that alderman McKillop take the chair.  The amendment was lost and alderman  Fletcher took the chair.  The first .by-law considered was, No.  HO, the object of which was the levying  of a head tax of $2 upon every male  resident between the ages of 21. and 50  years, said tax to be payable on September 15th.  Alderman Hillyer entered an objection  at once. He held that the by-law should  be so framed that -all whose homes appeared upon the assessment roll should  be exempt. The property owners were  being" taxed to their utmost ability  to pay.  Alderman Fletcher added that it was  absurd to pass a by-law making a tax  payable before the by-law imposing the  tax could be passed. The by-law was  being considered in committee on the  11th instant aiid it was proposed to  make the tax payable on the 1.5th.  Alderman Beer spoke in favor of the  tax and said that it was proposed to collect it from every one who was liable for  it. The council was voting money freely  for the citizens and he thought that they  should pay their taxes ' cheerfully. He  added that in the estimates made of tlio  revenue for the year it was always understood that the head tax would 1. o  collected,  The tax; bylaw was reported complete,  alderman Hillyer voting in the negative.  The next bylaw was No. 50, to prevent  the sale of anything on Sunday save milk',''  drugs, medicines and tobaccos. When it  was taken up alderman Beer moved that  it be taken up clause by clause. This  was supported by aldermen McKillop  and Kirkpatrick, but was opposed by tho  mayor and aldermen Hillyer and Fletcher and'was therefore resolved in the  negative.       ' , '  The late of this motion made Alderman Boer rather hot and he ini'modiatoly  commenced to explain. r He "thought that  some of the objections, to tlie by-law  "would bo overcome if tho opinion of tho  city solicitor were hail as lo whether the  by-law prohibited the sale of meals and  lunches.  Alderman Fletcher replied that tlie  opinion of the city solicitor could be  taken in council. He was in the chair to  deal with motions and not opinions. If  there were no other motions the committee would ttike up the next by-law.  Alderman Beer then got in a little  speech. He said that since the last meeting of the council he had been severely  criticized, and tho statement was made  that he was opposed to a wide-open  town. This was not true, as he was in  favor of a wide-open town for six days  in the week, but if a wide-open town  meant gambling on .Sundayand the keeping of disorderly houses he would be  content to be known as a narrow-gauge  man.  Alderman Hillyer retorted that alderman Beer  was  casting  reflection.,   upon  Hc~cleniecl~tha b  dis-  TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 12, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY,  have his hair cut and  could  not got the  service.  Alderman Beer retorted that the chairman would be more in order if he would  put the motion, to which alderman  Fletcher replied that he had been voted  into the chair against his wish and that  he proposed to talk as inucli as he liked.  The motion was then-put and carried,  reporting the by-law complete, alderman  Hillyer and Fletcher voting in the negative.  Tho house-numbering by-law came  next. When alderman Beer moved that  it be reported, alderman Hillyer objected.  He said the money could be spent to  bettor advantage on sidewalks or sewers.  The mayor again went over to the opposition, saying that he would oppose it  upon tho ground of expense.  Alderman Fletcher said that the numbers alone would cost $25(),and he thought  it unwise to incur it with a deficit staring the council in the face.  After some further discussion alderman  McKillop expressed the opinion that he  would also oppose the bylaw on account  of the expense.. The bylaw was then laid  over until the expense of putting it in  force could be ascertained..  This finished the bylaws, but before  the committee rose alderman Beer made  another effort, to got tho Sunday bylaw  through. He moved that it be reported  complete as amended by the city solicitor  bo permit the sale of meals and lunches.  The six months' hoist was atronce moved  by alderman Hillyer, seconded by the  mayor. The division was taken and alderman Hillyer counted the bylaw out.  The committee then rose and reported the  road tax and the barbers bylaws complete. '  When the committee got back into  council alderman Beer moved the third  reading of the road-tax by-law, but  alderman Hillyer had another objection.  He contended that the by-laws, were'  irregularly before the council, in that  they we're' introduced at a special meeting without notice. The city solicitor  said that tho by-laws should have been  introduced at a regular meeting. This  threw thorn out, and alderman Hillyer  moved- that .by-laws Nna. 49, 52 and 5y  bo read a first time ab tlie next meeting  of the council.      _  , -  ���the police commissioners"  there was any Sunday gambling oi  order in Nelson. Alderman Fletcher expressed the opinion that alderman Beer  was only stating one side of the question.  It would be better in his opinion to leave  the question of Sunday closing to the  good, judgment of tlie people of Nelson.  Practically all the stores were closed on  Sunday. Tho fruit dealers were the only  merchants who remained open and the  necessities of tlieir business required them  to dispose of tlieir fruit as speedily as  possible. He considered the bylaw naf-  l'ow minded and grandmotherly. If  alderman Beer, who was tlie father of the  bylaw, was honest in his attempt at Sunday closing* lie would strike at the root of  tlie matter and close the saloons and  tobacco stores as we'll. Since he had decided to play to the gallery in the matter  he should play to the whole gallery.  The city solicitor about this time tendered an opinion that the bylaw had  better be amended if it was . desired to  permit the sale of meals and lunches.  This prompted alderman Beer to move  that the city solicitor draft an amendment but the motion was not entertained  and on motion of the mayor the committee took up the next bylaw. This was  No. 52 aud provided for the closing of the  barbei' shops on Sunday.  Alderman Beer moved that it be reported complete, but alderman Hillyer  moved in amendment that it be given  the six months' hoist and was supported  by alderman Fletcher. The amendment  was then put and lost.  Before putting the original motion alderman Fletcher asked if it would not be  better to have a time stated for the coming into effect of the bylaw. It might be.  inconvenient if the thing was sprung on  tlio barbers and alderman Beer desired to  The Routine Business.  ��� The council decided to dismiss the present poundkeepor, and the 'mayor was  authorized to get a how' man.  The application for a sewer on Victoria  street east of .Josephine was referred to  tho public works committee with power  to act. The same disposition was made  of the petition for the grading of west  Baker streot.  The complaint of J. Bannorman and F.  B. Lys" concerning the blasting of rock  near their residences was'-refer. red to the  chief of police.  Tho communications of J. J. Driseoll, A.  Pfciffer and D. 0. Lewis were referred to  the city engineer, and that of George  Ritchie -went to the public works committee.  The tender of J. A. McLaughlin for the  erection of electric light poles at $3.50  wras accepted.   Brave Men Lost Their Lives.

Tho following report of the preliminary examination of the parties accused of  sotting fire to the Columbia hotel has  been sent The Tribune by the Grand  Forks Board of Trade :  Grand Forks, September 10.���Charles  Mullen was today committed for trial on  a charge of arson in connection  with bhe  destruction  of the Hotel Columbia last  July.    W. A. Macdonald, Q.C., of Nelson,  appeared with Messrs. Miller and  Morrison for the defense.    Mr. McLeod of Midway  acted as crown   prosecutor.      Tho  defense claim that the  sensational  disclosures promised by the crown  did  not  materialize.    Royce was called for cross-  examination,   John    Watson,   late  bartender at the Yale, for cross-examination,  aud Robert Cameron  for  cross-examination and the examination in  chief.    The  case for the crown has not yet been completed.     Cameron   swore   that   he  had  jived in a tent in Grand Forks  with  one  Stubbs.    The  witness, according to  his  testimony, paid Stubbs  $100, but maintained that he never asked Stubbs to do  a "job."    He received $200 from  Mullen,  retaining  one-half for  himself.    Stubbs  w*is in Rosalia, AVashington, at the  time  he (witness) left there recently for Grand  Forks.  Royce, under cross-examination, contradicted many of his previous statements. The matter having been brought  up by the defense, the witness was  severely reprimanded by the court for a  cowai'dly assault upon Walter Miller, a  citizen of Grand Forks, on Thursday  evening. Royce was a prisoner-at-large  at the time. The witness swore Charles  Mullen gave nim $130 the.Friday before  the fire. Then.he-went to Cameron, who  refused to do the job unless the full  amount was paid over; Royce came back  and returned the money to Mullen, but  explained to the latter that the job would  be done that night. Witness added that  lie and Cameron went to Columbia to  look OArer the ground, never intending,  however, to set fire to the hotel. He said  he had'several conversations with Cameron before the lire. This testimony con-  dieted with the evidence of ..Cameron,  wlio declared that the first conversation  he had with Royce about the matter occurred on the way to Columbia. On the  way back Royce showed him ��$250, and  offered him .$150 in return for a .promise  to set the fire.,- The court sbrongly denounced the action of the Columbia press  bureau for sending misleading reports of  the proceedings to the outside press.

New Denver, September 11.���Develop-  ment at the Mollie Hughes  is proceeding  in mi energetic manner, and tho  best results are being obtained.    So much so  is  this  the  case  that  tho  town can count  upon another strong point  in bringing it  forward to future greatness.   It is simply  marvelous tho number of prominent  developments  around  New  Denver in tho  past  month, and  tho Mollie Hughes  can  safely be counted as one of the foremost.  Last week  the owners  commenced work  with a  small force, determined to thoroughly test   the   property.    T.   Avison  assumed  charge  and   he   decided   upon  opening    up    the    rich   ledge   running  through the Mollie Hughes claim.    Going  up the hill some distance above the railroad track aud beyond the openings made  by.; the   Northwesb    Mining    Syndicate  when they had the group under  bond, a  cut was cleared out exposing likely ore in  the breast.     Then starting in just below  this, a tunnel was commenced, and a day  or so ago the  vein  was  caught with the  most gratifying success.    Fourteen inches  of ore are  now  showing in  the breast,  of which considerable is being taken out  and piled up on the dump ready for shipment.   It is of the usual character found  on the  claim,  carrying  gold, copper,and  galena, with heavy scales of native silver.  The ore is of very high grade and needs  .rib sorting.    Specimens  brought over to  town have  never  been  excelled in richness  here,   nor   yet   in  general beauty.  From present indications the  ore chute  will prove continuous and in place, and  it is believed  this  vein  is the iiiaih ore  carrying fracture  on  the groirp, tho igh  there are numerous others showing shipping mineral.    The success of the owners  so early in   their  labors  is stimulating  them to  greater  efforts, and  they will  work and ship their own mineral, to tlie  increasing wealth of themselves and the  general well-being of the town.  Hermann Clever is making a mine of  the Lost Tiger group, upon which such a  fine strike was made some weeks ago. He  has four men working and, in addition to  a number of open cuts along,the lead, ho  has two tunnels driven, one iu 60 feet and  the other 70, feet." The top working lias  a fine showing of clean ore and concentrates, but is evidently cutting the apex  -of the chute. The lower drift is expected  to tap the ore in 125' feet, when big  things may be looked for. Mr. Clover is  convinced lie has. the Alpha lead and that  it runs through the group. Prospecting  the ground is difficult, the wash being ten  to twenty feet deep. He has had numerous opportunities to sell the group, but  he will postpone all overtures till tho  lower drift gets to the ore body. This  property is a direct benefit to the town  in many ways.  Messrs. King and Clarke, who are operating from hero, have just inspected a  likely prospect near Sandon, with a view  to bonding.  Eight men are working under contract  at the Sovereign.  Twenty tons of ore were shipped from  the Rambler-Cariboo last week, and  steady .shipments will follow. There are  twenty-five men Avorking and this force  will be gradually increased.

The other men pooled their  interests with the Lawrence Hardware  Company and Columbia was given the  advantage of a slaughter sale in hardware. On tho first day the sales  amounted to more than $100, .and eventually a local dealer named W. W. Astell  purchased the stock outright in self protection. The fourth mortgage holder  was the only ono that was hurt.  Has Faith in the North Country.  Captain Troup combined pleasure with  business  on  his   recent  trip  to Alaska.  He went as far as Bennett, the terminus  of the White Pass & Yukon railway, and  had he had ten days more time, he would  have made the trip through to Dawson.  The railway to Bennett  is  a good piece  of ���mountain    wrork,   there   being   few  bridges    in    the    entire   forty    niiles.  With    short    tramway   portages,   both  Dawson  and  Atlin   can  be  reached by  taking steamboats  at Bennett.    Captain  Troup is of opinion that the North country will be a good one for many years to  conie.    At the famous" Tread well mine,  opposite Juneau,  there is  one mill with  ;320 stamps dropping continuously on ore  that averages   about   $3  per  ton.    The  yield from the Atlin  placers will not be  as  large  this  year  as  was  at first expected.    This is not because the diggings  are not good, but  because  work was delayed owing to the many tangles that had  to be straightened  out by  the government.    The weather during the trip was  all that could be..desired���no' rain, no fog,  lio smoke.  Great Work of an Inventor.  Probably no man has placed the-great  mining world under greater obligations  to the inventive genius of man than'the  late Lilan C. Bullock, the inventor of the  famous diamond drill. Nearly thirty years  ago he established the superiority of his invention when he bored a hole over 750 feet  deep at Pottsvillo, Pennsylvania. Since  then the drills of the M. C.BullOck Manufacturing Company have gone to nearly  every civilized country on the face of the  globe and have ever succeeded in satisfactorily performing the work they were  guaranteed to do.- Mr. Bullock took out^  nearly one hundred patents, covering his  inventions' of various kinds, including  diamond drills, mining machinery ' of _ all  kinds, steam engines, electrical machinery  aud rock "drills.   '    "'  A Tracing Company That is Ambitious.'  Tlie new owners of tho 150-mile House  are, through their manager, alderman  Thomson of Nelson, inspecting the Little  Lake ranch- aiid . the Vieth & Borland  property in Quosnelle Porks, for "some  years managed by Henry Vieth, with a  view of adding these properties- to their  holdings. There seems -good reason to  think that the deal will be completed.  Taken altogether' the properties of the  Cariboo Trading Company will cover'  a Avido range, and a very large business  will be done by the company. Yes, and  the company's manager had better hurry  back to Nelson and help straighten out  the tangle his fellow aldermen have gob  the city into.  WINDERMERE   NEWS   NOTES.  F. M.

Or<j(invroixt M iitor.  It having been reported oil tlie streot  that the lumber combine recently formed  here, known as the Yale Lumber Company, had been broken, the Miner yesterday enquired at the head ollice and found  that the rumor was incorrect so far as  the gentlemen in charge had any knowledge. It was also freely stated  on tlie street that the price of  lumber had been again advanced,  and a good deal of indignation was expressed as a consequence. Enquiry was  also made as to that, and tile following  quotations were furnished : Rough lumber, $18 ;.. shiplap, $22 ; rustic, $25 ; six-  inch flooring, $27; four-inch'flooring, $30.  The bookkeeper said that no recent advance had been made.  Pooled Their Interests and Came Out Even.

No young Canadian in public life is  better fitted than W. W. B. Melnnes,  M. P., to travel to distinction���on his-own-  morits. It is his misfortune that enemies  are able to suggest that his advancement  is the work of his father, the lieutenant-  governor and not the result of his own  talent. There is no member of the  British Columbia delegation to the  dominion parliament who approaches  W. W.

Windemeri". September 9.���The crosa  placed by Father de Sniet on Sinclair  Pass, in 1854, has been the subject of  more than one prospector's dream of  wealth. The reverend father, after his  return to France in the following year,  published a book on his travels in North?  west America, a copy of which is yet to  be seen at St. Mary's Mission, in East  Kootenay. In the volume he tells of  finding a ledge of rich mineral and of  placing a cross to mark the find for some  fortunate prospector in some distant  time, as he prophesied that some day  this would be a great mining country.  Numerous  expeditions   have searched  for the lost ledge, in the  last few years,  but none have been successful enough to  ever find the cross  until   recently.    Last  month  a  party  of   prospectors,  named  Joe   Lassord,   Dave -Smith   aud   Frank  Marsjean,   went   out,   and   after   three  weeks, amid  snow  and   rain, found  the  remains of the  cross,  which  had  fallen  years  ago  to  decay among the rocks at ;  its  base.    The  continued   fall of   snow  made further prospecting impossible and .  they returned  to Windemere, and  willy.;  return next year with hopes of success.  - Will be Closed to the Public.  Berlin, September  11.���The National  Zeitung  says  it has  been  decided that  hereafter the private apartments" of the  emperor  here and  at  Potsdam  will be v  closed to the public, even in the absence  of their majesties.    The decision to close  the apartments  of emperor William' Of  Germany to the public is probably due to  the fact  that a  witness  testified before  the Dreyfus .court martial  that he had  seen a  paper  (the  Libre  Parole) in em-   .  peror-William's' bedroom at Potsdam, and  that on the paper were certain words in  German meaning "Dreyfus has been ar-;  rested."

Roderick Robertson of Nelson and George  Alexander of Kaslo removed to another  sphere of usefulness.  Thk in-esident and the secretary of the  Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern  British Columbia have taken it upon  themselves to address a memorial to the  minister of mines upon the eight-hour  question. As individuals, they have a  right to their opinions on that or any  other question; but tliey have no right,  either delegated or otherwise, to address  anybody on that question as the heads  of the federated boards of trade of  Ka.stern British Columbia. In their unauthorized memorial they make statements that are not in accordance with  facts. They say that the working of the  eight-hour law has clearly demonstrated  that the mine-owners will not be able  to bear the increased burden, and a  reduction of wages must follow. These  two gentlemen may h.ave inside information as to the intentions of some ofthe  mine owners at Rossland, but it is doubtful if they have accurate data from all  the metalliferous mines in Kootenay and  Yale as to the difference in cost of working under the changed conditions! One  of the largest employers of skilled miners  at Rossland made the change from the,  ten-hour shift to the eight-hour shift  several months before the eight-hour law  was passed. The change was made voluntarily, and not on the demand of labor  agitators. There Avas not even a hint of  a reduction of wages when the change  was made. There is just a possibility  that the president and secretary of the  associated boards of trade have put their  foot in it by signing a memorial that  they m ere not authorized to sign in the  lirst place, and which is not a statement  of fact in the second place.      -  Why do not the business men of the  country bring pressure to bear on the  two men who are responsible for the noh-  .workiiig of the shipping mines of tho  Slocan.

WOES   OF   A   HUMORIST.  The chronic professional humorist was  sulTering tho tortures of the eternally  lost. One after another the wretched  sinners had stood up there in the gospel  tent and told of their .delinquencies.-  These ranged from the" worst kind", of  felonies to the.inost venial misdemeanors.  One man, for instance, revealed how in a  fit of annoyance he had slaughtered a  large and interesting family. Another  reproached himself for having slipped by  a sleepy elevated railroad chopper without dropping his ticket in the box. Jn  the most frank and engaging manner  everyone had- owned up to something or  other. ���-'  And now it was all over, and the  chronic humorist was at home with his  dog, with his thoughts. Then there came  to him suckle! y a flash of righteousness  '���that lighted up and showed him vividly  "and as he never saw before the horror of  the life he had been leading for years.  How to atone for it? The revivalist had  plainly said that confession must precede any "attempt-to reform. And there  in his own chamber, attached; to which  was the conventional dormer window  which no story like this is complete, he  poured out his whole soul, dictating the  soul to his stenographer.  :���:..-���:."Rov years," his coiifession-beganV."for  lyn man over wore a shawl except in one  of my jokes. The whole thing is a fiction for which 1 now atone. As I think  over the pitiful way in which I have eon-  ducted myself the perspiration stands  thick upon my brow, and there is the pain  of remorse in my heart."  A peal of thunder shook the rafters of  the remorseful and chronic humorist's  home. Again the dog howled, for he was  a trained dog that knew the dramatic  possibilities of the situation. A gust or  blast fiercer than any of its predecessors  blew out the lamp, and tho humorist had  to stop confessing for that night, but it  was not because he was through.  4'ii$$;-\'^_i^  r-S^Seuedl- !tfi:��(^��e%r^  ^^vis?6a^bl'������as������cJi'i ii_U.iUl;p!is.b.v ''iPS _i H> #'Qf!J&^0:.

Tho stories that missionaries send  home often throw a vivid light upon tho  dark and savage conditions that encompass them. One of the-teachers of the  American Baptist Missionary Union, in  his annual report, tells of a recent incident that occurred far up the Kongo  river among the natives living around  the shores of lake Tuniba, only a short  distance south of the big river.  Early one Sunday morning, as the  missionary aud his wife were preparing  for the duties ofthe day, they heard a  shout-from the lake. An old man was  seen seated in a canoe, which a number  of stalwart fellows .-were paddling as fast  as they could toward the little river that  ���carries the.waters of the lake to the Kongo, a few miles north. The old man was  crying in a frantic and despairing voice:  '���Mpebe na Monkasa."  These were the names by which the  missionary and his wife are known to the  natives. Tlie old fellow called them again  and again, till he saw the white man,  and his wife;, standing; oil the beach.  Then he shouted to them:  *"Oh, come and save nie!    They are taking me awayto kill aiid eat me!"  The missionary understood the situa-  he would probably have been killed before night.  The expected then happened. Of  cOurse the savages did not relish the idea  of returning to their people without any  victim and with one of their party missing. The white man felt certain they  would try to ransom their comrade, and,  sure enough, the crestfallen man eaters  after a little while appeared within hailing distance.  They had brass wire, they shouted,  and how much did the white man want  in exchange for their friend.  He wanted all they had, and after considerable parleying a lot of wire was  brought half Avay to the station.  The old man said he was sure this wire  was all his captors had in the canoe, aiid  finally it was accepted and the prisoner,  released. The men probably made their  way as best they could back to their tribe.  The wire was worth only $1, but the  missionary says this was enough to keep  the old man in food for over nine months,  and the fair inference is that the cost .of,  .living, on the upper Congo has been re-,  dued to a bedrock basis.  FULL LINE OF  The Kongo state is rigorously suppressing caunibalism as far as its influence extends, and therefore the natives wlio indulge in the practice no longer dare, in  accordance with their former custom, to  send, large expeditions out to buy slaves.  Now and then, however, a small party  engage in the hazardous business, hoping!  by the smallness of their numbers to escape the attention of the whites.

Mrs. Alice Ferry has applied for an  hotel license at Five-mile point. The application will probably be taken up by  the commissioners within the next two  weeks.  .Judge Forin has made orders for the  restitution of the revolvers found on  h'rank Kennedy to the Nelson Hardware  Company, as well as for the jewelry  found in the possession of Stanford  Chapman.  .Stanford Chapman, the young man  charged with the theft of jewelry from  the Jlo.ol Pliaii', came before judge Forin  yesterday for election, and upon being  arraigned entered a plea, of guilty. As  the prisoner is under sixteen years of  age, judge Forin remanded him for sen-  tenceiintil his relatives can be communicated with.  Thomas Cameron will be arraigned  before judge Forin today upon the  charge of theft from the person in that  he took a check from- John Leech while  the latter was asleep. W. A. Galliher  will prosecute on behalf of the crown.  E. E. Phair writes Tins Trimune under  date of the 11th instant: "Fifty-one arrivals at the Hotel Phair today; about a  dozen turned away."  Thomas Kane of Erie is in Nelson. He  says that while mining operations around  Erie are not on any very extensive scale,  a considerable number of men are working in small parties throughout ��� the district of which Erie is the trading point.  There were over sixty-one guests registered at the Hotel Phair last evening.  The delegates to the meeting of the  Canadian Mining Institute, which meets  today, arrived last evening. They come  from as far south as Colorado and as far  east as Montreal.  There was no quorum at the iBoard of  Trade meeting last evening.  Rev.
