 TEN  THOUSAND IN THE HOLE  Alderman Fletcher's Financial Forecast.  Compromise was tlio predominating  characteristic of last evening's meeting  of the city council, and in the end it was  decided to entrust alderman Beer with a  check for $1200 for the .settlement of r.he  reservoir land dispute, and to charge tho  members of tho public works committee  with the responsibility of settling the  Innes claim for compensation for land  affected by the city's electric light dam.  All of the unsettled questions were introduced by city clerk SLraohan in a report which he made to the council touching the work he accomplished in Victoria  while upon pleasure bent. Before proceeding to discuss the several matters referred to alderman Beer moved that the  report be received, and coupled with this  a formal vote of thanks to the clerk for  the attention which he had given to the  city's interests.  The lirst matter taken up was the dispute with the Nelson City Land fc Improvement Company. This dispute was  occasioned by the construction of the  city reservoir which led the owners of  the wild laud built.upon to put in a claim  upon the city for .something over $0000.  Two city councils offered $750 in settlement but without result, and tho city  clerk was commissioned to bring the two  ends of the dispute as closely together as  possible. He reported last oveningthat asa  result of a conference had with l_. Crowe  Baker of Victoria he thought tliat tlie  city could settle the claim for $1200 and  at the same time secure title to some  , thirteen lots, instead of five as was  originally wanted, on'the mountain side.  Mayor Neelands at once advocated a  settlement. He reminded the council  that alderman Beer was about to leave  for the Coast and suggested that lie take  a marked city check for what might be  agreed upon as sufficient to settle the  claim.  Alderman Fletcher was not very enthusiastic over the proposed settlement.  He considered that the claim should be  settled for less money. The other members of the council all thought it desirable that the dispute should be settled,  and on motion of alderman Hillyer, seconded by alderman McKillop, it was decided to request alderman Beer to effect  a settlemt upon the basis suggested.  The dispute with F. C. Innes over the  land covered by the electric light dam  was then taken up, the -opinion of city  soliutoi Gillihei being taken as a. slat tei  JIii .uhice to tho council vsas th.it something should be done at onto, as the city  .it piesent did not ou n the giotind upon  ���which the dam wis built.

Alderman Beer asked that  a small expenditure be made ou Victoria  .street at its intersection witli Cedar, so  that 'delivery wagons could get froni  Cedar street along Victoria street.  Alderman Fletcher thought that before  any further work was attempted something should be kuoAVn with regard to  tlie city's finances. His coniiuittee had  been m-ithorfcod to spend $1,7000: Of this  ahiount $13000 had been spent, so that  there should remain about $1000 at the  disposal of the committee.  'The mayor disagreed from the statement of tlie ease. He Informed the chairman of the .���public works committee that  it -liad'.not one dollar to expend.  Alderman Boer then added that instead of tlie public works committee  having a surplus of $-1000 there had been  an excess Of expenditure of about $0000  on debenture account.  Alderman Fletcher retorted that the  council might have spent the amounts  stated, but it could not be charged to the  public works committee. Iu any event  he thought it was time the finance coui-  inittee furnished figures so that the  members could know where they were.  Tliey had been sitting in the council for  about a year and had but three statements from the committee in that time.  If the public works committee had spent  all the money which the council had  available he as a member of the committee desired to know it. He wanted a  statement showing the whole thing.  The city clerk in  reply    said  that  a  statement of the calibre desired by alderman  Fletcher  was  being  prepared and.  would be ready shortly.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON  BRITISH^  ^.^��BIA.  SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 16,  1899.  3b- ��  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  Alderman Fletcher added that ho had  gone into the figures with alderman McKillop of the finance committee, whereupon tho chairman of the finance committee volunteered the information that  upon this occasion alderman Fletcher  brought the council out at the eiul of the  year���just $10,000 in the hole.  Money is Not Scarce.  A merchant who advertises exclusively  in Tun Thiiiuxk says that there appears  to Imv plenty of ready money in tho hands  of tho men who work for wages. His  trade is largely with those who are classed  as wage-earners, and his daily cash sales  run from $200 to $100. Yet one would  suppose that the country was ruined because a few mine managers refuse to  adapt themselves to the conditions  brought about by limiting men working  underground to eight hours a day.  rgy ...   "WHE PAYROLL OF ONE  MINING  ENGLISH  CAPITA  IS SEEKING  Investment in British Columbia Mines.  Vancouver World.  No less a person than lord Ernest Hamilton will bo a passenger  on  the  City of  Seattle leaving Vancouver  on  Saturday  foi1   the north.     He  is accompanied by  colonel JTaggart, and the  two  are   going  north on one of the largest mining deals  on record. . They are the representatives  of the English company who have bought  out   the  Atlin   interests  of "Sailor Bill"  Partridge,   who  left   Vancouver   a  few  clays ago.  Lord Hamilton and his friends  are now in Vancouver awaiting  the sailing of tlieir steamer.    Partridge went to  London in .June, and through the firm of  mining brokers, Haggart, Hall & Prixley,  he   succeeded   in   selling, the    Flormau  quartz claims in Atlin district for $250,-  000, to be paid to him in Skagway  on or  before      October     1st,     and     $250,000  to    be    spout   in   putting   up. a   large  stamp mill and other  machinery at  the  mine.

J Finucane and T. J. Lendntiu The  deal is riot a sale, but is rather a combination of interests whereby the two  mines���Avhielradjoin each other on the  same vein���are made one property, to be  operated as* a whole. The exact terms of  the -agreement are not made public*. Tlie  amount of cash passing is sinall, and the  Fidelity owners are still largely interested in the property under the new  arrangements. The Bsstui mine is a famous property. Mr. Sandiford took a 80-  day option oil it a year ago last May.  The agreement was that lie should do the  assessment work for the option, and at  the end of thirty days he might buy tlie  claim for $7500 or bond it for a year for  .$1.*5,000, witli ten per cent down. He was  ���ridiculed by the old-timers of New Deliver for his credulity in having anything  to do with the property, which had always been considered a rank wildcat and  had originally been deemed valuable only  for ranching purposes. But Mr. Sandiford is a.-mining man of wide experience.  He has represented his Loudon company  in niining regions the world around. For  years he operated a silver-lead mine in  Servia for his principals. He has been in  South Africa and on the eastern coast of  that continent. He has mined in India  and operated in Argentina. He was not  talcing other people's views, therefore,  when he invested in the Bosun. Mr.  Sandiford was at the Phair last night on  his way back from Spokane.  Baseball   Games.

Tho pay-roll of the mines in the immediate vicinity of Itosslaiid for the month  of August  was  in the  neighborhood of  $125,000.    This would  indicate  that tho  niining  industry  of  that section of the  province was in  a fairly healthy condition.    But  tho  payroll should not alone  be considered.    The reports  of the mine  managers  aro  what investors  consider.  No one who knows him will  accuse manager Carlyle of the Le Roi mine of being  either a gusher or a booinster.    In his report to the board of directors of the company in London he says : " I am  pleased  to say that the development work  done  during  the  past  month has  been  very-  satisfactory in its results, disclosing, as it  has, much more ore of good value on each  of the 500, (500,  700  and 800-foot  levels,  audi am .more  than  convinced that if  for some time to come I devote most of  our eltorts to the thorough development  of this property, making  the  shipments  of ore altogether a secondary matter, as  I am practically doing now,  the  results  will amply repay  us.    During  the  past  month, owing to holidays and the accident  to   the  compressor,  wo shipped  for  24  days, 0307 tons of  ore,  which  contained  2885 ounces gold, 0471 ounces silver, and  193,482 pounds copper.

Clifford, M.P.P. for Cassiar, in an  interview with a Victoria Times  representative,  said   that if  the government  was  to  he  attacked  and   its   existence  threatened hecause of the eight-hour law  he was prepared   to  support  it, on  that  measure   at   any   rate.    "I   am  an  old  miner," ho added, ."and I think I  can do  as much in eight hours on ordinary drill  work as in ten.    The day resolves  itself  naturally  into  three parts, eight hours  for work, eight hours for sleep, and eight  hours for recreation. Any company which  is iu a pesition to pay .$3.50 for ton hours'  work can pay thesame foreight,and if they  have to close clown on account of the two  hours'  difference, it is only a question of  time when they would  close down  anyway.    Yes, I am as strong a supporter- of  ���the eight-hour day as ever." Mr. Clifford's  attitude makes it certain that a majority  of the legislative assembly will support  the eight-hour law, no matter what the  uncertainty may be  in  connection  Avith  other .questions.    There  is  a  somewhat  curious statement made to the effect that  in  the  Lardeau   niines,  where  there  is  little work done underground, the working day is generally of but eight hours.  The limitation need only apply to underground work, arrd if tlie Lardeau owners  voluntarily make it apply to  all work,  tlieir action is rather significant.  GRAVE   AND   GAY   STORYETTES.  A French delegate to the recent Women's Congress in London resisted for a  long time the efforts of lady Aberdeen to  induce her to "draw her remarks to a  close." , At last the chairwoman. Avas  obliged to order the speaker peremtorily  to resume her seat. The French lady  turned in hot indignation, and Avhisked  herself back to her chair.

The man paused  and remarked: "I've been bled by .St.  ���Joseph Ileus, bitten by Kansas City  spiders, and interviewed by Fort Scott  graybacks, but I'll be darned if I was ever  in a place before where the bugs looked  over the hotel register to find out where  your room was."  Mrs. Sallie Marshall Hardy, wlio is a  descendant of chief justice Marshall,  visited the supreme court chambers in  Washington recently and was introduced  to justice Harlan by a functionary of the  court. She was then seated under the  bust of her distinguished ancestor, and  justice Harlan whispered to chief justice  Fuller: "That little Avoman there under  Marshall's bust is his great-granddaughter." The chief-justice looked towards  the little woman, and then said: "Tell  her 1 am afraid the bust may fall on her."  "I'm not afraid," returned Mrs. Hardy;  "nothing on earth could please me so  much as to have my great-grandfather's  head fall on my shoulders."

London, September 10.���A special from  Pretoria says the Transvaal reply Avill be  on the folloAving lines: The Transvaal  adheres to the seven-years' franchise  laA\r, but is Avilling to consider, and, if  necessary to adopt any suggestions Great  Britain may make with regard to the  Avorking of the law. In regard to the  other points of Mr. Chamberlain's dispatch the TransA-aal boldly stands by tho  London convention. It is said the reply  is couched in polite terms.  .State secretary Rcitz, in the course of  an interview today expressed some doubt  as to Avhethcr any alteration Avould he  made in tho existing franchise law, but  said he believed a Avay should and could  be found to establish an arbitration  court. As to suxoraiuty the least said,  the soonest mended, remarked the state  secretary.  In the forecasts of president  Kruger's  reply  there  is  undoubtedly a  basis  of  truth, Avhich seems to bring the dispute  Avithin  a  measurable  distance   of ��� Avai'v  Last evening the press association issued  a curious statement to the effect that as  soon as the garrison in  Natal  had  been  sufficiently strengthened  the  Transvaal  goA'ernnient would be called on to accept:  a neAV convention already drafted, Avhich  AA'hile guaranteeing the integrity  of the :>  Transvaal state, provides for the demolition of the forts,  and  limits  the armed  force   of   the  Transvaal   to' a   number  deemed   sufficient  to maintain  internal  order.  According to the press association the  convention will demand that the diplomatic agencies be suppressed and that  the judiciary be made independent of  the executive. This statement, Avhich  realizes the extreme 'demand of the  Uitlanders must be accepted with -reserve  at the present, but it is iiot unlikely to  be a semi-official hint as to the next move  of the government should president  Kruger prove obdurate.  The morning paper editorials regard  the crisis as having reached its most  acute phase. The Daily NeAA's says:  "We refuse to believe that president  Kruger is so foolish as to reject Mr.  'Chamberlain's moderate demands.  The Daily Chronicle, wliich appeals  again to Mr. Kruger to accept Avhile it is  time, and'before England's terms become  harder, says : "A. refusal of the present  terms Avill iiivoh^e the ruin of the state '  OA'er which"' president Kruger presides.

There is probably no other part of  whist strategy that has undergone; such  a change during the pjisb few years as  the play of the second hand. In the old  days when long-suit openings, wore the  invariable rule all the play of the second  hand was based upon the theory that tlie  original lead of any high card showed  certain other high cards in the leader's  hand and that any small card led Avas  certainly a fourth-best, showing, that a  certain'number of higher cards were out  against tho leader.  The old masters attached more importance to second hand play than to any  other part of the game, and if we may  believe tho accounts wliich have come  down to us of the play of Dcschappelles  it was that for which he was 'chiefly  famous, one writer describing it as  "terrific." An examination of the old  text books will sIioav that,they devote a  good deal of space to the consideration of  tiro various situations in which the second -hand will probably find "himself in  difficulties and need advice. Mathews, in  liis "Advice to the Young Whist Player,"  devotes more of his maxims to second  hand play than to tiny other subject, and  his remarks, although made 100 years  ago, are well worthy of our consideration  today, and show that his ideas agreed  very closely* with the best, modern prae-  ,-tiee. The principal points ho- gives are  the following:  With only three carets in the suit led,  put tin" honor on an honor, but pass if you  hold four of the suit, ,except that ace  should be put on the jack. It will be ob-.  served that ho does not mention the exceptional Ciises in which the four cards  contain an imperfect fourchette.  With king and one small, good players  sometimes put it on second-hand, and  sometimes not. If it is a trump it should  generally bo played, and always ifjt is  turned "up. The queen or jack should  never be played from queen and ono  small or jack and one small except in  trumps when a superior card has been  turned rip on the right.  With ace, queen and others play the  small card .unless the jack is led through  you, in which case play ths aeo invariably. With king, queen and others play  the quceu when a small card is led.  With queen, jack one small play the jack,  but with two small cards play tlie smaller. With ace, queen, toii^ Mathews recommends the ten, and says nothing  about the general weakness, which sug-  _gc_itsjLo_the_inoclorn_pJa.yei^that-it_worilcl-  bo safer to go iu with tho queen.  The modern school of common sense  players holding A Q J second hand, or A  .1 10, invariably false-card the queen,  froiii the first and tho jack from the  .seeoiid, so fts to conceal tlie terrace  from the adversary iVhcl induce liim to  believe that one more lead will cleav his  suit, Mathews says that with A .1 10 of  trumps we should play the ten, biit  should .'PiH-y* siirtiil in plain suits, lie  gives as the reason for passing in triiin|)8  tliat they* are so often low ft'our both  king turd queen, while i�� pliiiii suits the  high eitrds Avould be led* lie says if one  of the high cards- must be behind you, as  in a plain suit, it is useless to put in the  jack or ten second hand. It is tliMitjji It to  See why the same reasoning does not apply to truirips, from which it is very corn-  inoir to lead witli a single honor.  Mathews makes one rather peculiar exception to the almost universal rule of  playing imperfect fourchettes. In his  '07-th maxim he says: "If the queen is  led on my right and I hold king, ten and  small, or ace, ten and small, I invariably  Is qow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Sl^aguay, U. S., Atliti, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yu^o-l District.  pass it, and for tho following reason:  Hy passing it, if partner has the higher  card, I clearly lie; lenace and the leader  cannot possibly make a trick in the suit,  which he must do if I win the first trick-  as he would then lie tonace over my  partner. If your partner has the jack,  you lose a. trick, but the odds are greatly  against this."  With ace, king and two others of a suit  led, Mathews says there are two ways to  play if you are strong in trumps: l.ither  pass the first trick altogether, or put on  the ace and play the suit on in hopes of I  forcing your partner. If you are weak  in trumps, put on the ace, but do not  continue the suit. Almost all the old  masters Avili be found to recommend this  system of false-carding the ace when  holding both ace and king second hand,  but none of them call attention to the  obvious inference that when second hand  plays the king he cannot hold the ace, or  he would false-card it, and that when he  plays the ace he must have the king or  no more.  If you have the best card of the adversaries' suit, with a small one, the first,  round having been Avon by the player on  your right, avIio immediately returns it,  always play the small card. If your  partner has the third best he will-probably make it if the adversary on your  left is a good player. If he is a bad  player,. Mathews says you should never  attempt'this coup, because such persons  never finesse Avhen they should do so.  If, on the first round of a suit, the  player ou your right plays either a jack  or  queen third hand, and your partner  Big Scljooqer  Beer or Half=  and=H alf  Always  Always  Fresh  Cool  THE BEST GLASS OF BEER IN NELSON" IS  AT THE  Club Hotel  E.

Brewery at Nelson,  wins with the king you should invariably  play the ten, if you hold it when the suit  is led through you again, unless the ace  conies out.  If the fourth player wins tho first  round of your suit cheaply, and immediately leads it through yotr, put up the  best card.you have, especially if you havo  led from a king and the ten or jack wins  ���fourth hand.  Mathews lays down as one of the few  "universal maxims which cannot be too  closely adhered to," that you should  never ruiT an uncertain card if strong, or  omit doing so if weak in trumps. He advises us to follow this rule even when we  know tliat partner holds tlie best card of  the suit led, because it has tho double advantage of making a useless trump and  letting the partner into the state of tho  hand. Unfortunately he does not limit  his statement as to trump strength, and  leaves tlie beginner under the impression  that with eight trumps, which is certain-  strength, it would be advisable to pass a  doubtful trick.  In tho modern game we have several  rules which arc not to be found in any of  tho  old  masters.

In tho  common-sense game this rule is extended  to cases of ace and four others, even when  one of the interior cards is tire .queen.  Many common-sense players put in tho  king second hand when they hold king.and  three or four small cards and have a good  lead with wliich to follow it. This often  works very well when opposed to those  that lead low from ace to live.  J'orhaps the most striking change in  modern practice has been the recognition  of the importance of covering with imperfect fourchettes. An imperfect fourchette is the card above and the one next  but one below tlie one led, such as K 10  over a queen, or Q !) over a jack. Many  persons make the mistake of calling K 10  an imperfect fourchette over a jack, or Q  0 over a ten, but these arc not true fourchettes at all. The higher card must be  the one next in value over the one led.
