 f.  If  ATTEMPT MADE TO SUPERCEDE  An Efficient City Employee.  At a special meeting of the city council last evening the electric light and  waterworks debenture bylaws, the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's bylaw,  and the Madden area bylaw were put  through tlie committee stage, aud on motion of alderman Hillyer, seconded by  alderman McKillop, Tuesday, December  5th, was fixed upon as polling day. J. K.  Strachan was appointed returning officer,  and the fireball was designated as the  polling booth for the East ward, and the  office of the Exchequer Gold Mining Company as the polling place for the West  ward.  Mayor Neelands brought up the question of securing the services of some one  to act as manager of tlie city's electric  light system. He informed the council  that it would be impossible to secure the  services of James McPhee, as he could not  leave the service of his company for at  least three months. The city, he said,  required a. man at once, and he suggested  that John Redman be employed to take  charge of the plant at a salary of $90 per  month. Mr. Redman, who was an employee of the tramway company, was  present and handed in some testimonials  from former omployers in St. Thomas,  Ontario.  Before any action was taken alderman  Hillyer said that he would like to ask the  city-engineer a question. He wanted to  know whether the feed pipes from the  penstock were sufficiently large to drive  the water-wheels to the full capacity. He  had been informed that there was a defect in the plant in this respect.  City engineer McCulloch ��� replied that  he intended to cross-connect the 28-inch  and the 11-iuch pipes.    He knew tliat the  WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER -22,  1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY*.   $2.  spiracy cases, resumed today the examination of M. Guerin, who insisted that  the Anti-Semite league had not meddled  in politics, but had merely "defended the  working classes against the power of the  Jews," and said that it had no connection  with the Royalists. M. Guerin also insisted that he had never plotted against  the republic. Adverting to the Port  Chabrol incident, M. Guerin expiated on.  the sufferings of the beseiged and denied  that he had fired ball cartridges at the  police. M. Dubuc, president of the  league, was not examined. He declared  the demonstration of its members were  directed purely against the revision of  the Dreyfus ease. Counsel for M. Dubuc  said lie wished for au explanation of certain charges against his client. The public prosecutor refused to give the required  information, which led to violent protests  from the Rightests, when M. Falliers, the  president of the senate, adjourned the  proceedings until today.  THE LATEST FBOI SOUTH AFRICA  AN EDITOR TALKS OF EXISTING  ������%'.  14-inch  pipe  was  not  large  enough   to  .... drive the alternating machine, but when  the pipes were connected there would be.  sufficient power.  Alderman Hillyer then stated that he  had been over to the power house aud  had been informed by electrician Bliss  ��that the present trouble was occasioned  by the fact that the feed pipe was riot  large enough to develop the power that  was available. -  City eugiueer .McCulloch replied that  the electrician was probably mistaken.  He added that the wood-stave pipe would  carry all the water that the city could  hope to get, from the dam to the penstock, and in his opinion the 28-inch pipe  would develop all the power required,  but until a cross-connection was made  between' the 28-inch feed pipe and the  14-inch pipe the best results could not be  attained.  Alderman * Hillyer ' then .protested  against the contemplated action of the  mayor iu removing electrician Bliss and  engaging a stranger. It might be that it  was the fault of the city that the  electrician could not get the necessary  power out of the wheels and he was in  favor of giving the present employees a  chance before putting -any outsiders in  their places.  Mayor Neelands replied that the electric light, department required a head.  Being without a head the city was being  charged excessive prices for sei'vices rendered in connection with the plant.  Alderman Hillyer retorted that there  were other leakages aside from any that  might exist in the power house. There  was no attempt made to cheek the waste  of curreut which was going on all over  the city. Lights were burning all night  in occupied and unoccupied stores, for  which no rates were paid to the city. He  considered phat the electrician had not  beeu given a.fair chance, and such being  the case lie would oppose any attempt to  ���put a new and untried man ovcr-him.��� -  Mayor Neelands replied that electrician  Bliss" service was uot satisfactory, aud  that the department needed a head very  badly.  Alderman Hillyer disagreed from this.  If a head was required a first-class man  should be secured. He did uot know  anything about Redman, but there  was nothing before the council to convince its members that Redman knew  anything about electricity. There probably was a necessity for addtional help  at the power house, and he would move  that Redman be appointed to work under  Bliss. This was amended, at the suggestion of alderman McKillop, to read that  Redman be employed for one month to  make such extensions to the system as  might be required, under the direction of  the city engineer, and was adopted.  In committee of the whole the waterworks and electric light debentures were  dated to run from January 20th.  Tenders were received from The Tribune Association and The Miner for the  advertising of the four bylaws to be submitted to the ratepayers. The tender of  The Tribune Association was the lower  by $31 and was accepted.  The bylaw for numbering the"houses  of the city, which was irregularly introduced some time ago, was introduced  again and received its first and second  leading. It was then referred to the city  engineer.  Before adjourning' a crossing was ordered at tlie corner of Hoover and Stanley  streets;, and Baker street ordered lowered  to grade at Kootenay street, ICootenay  street to be leveled to the satisfaction of  the city engineer.  Had Not Meddled in Politics.  Paris, November 21.���The senate,  sitting as a high court to try the coa-  Relations Between Two Great Nations.  New York, November 21.���The thirty-  first annual banquet of the Chamber of  Commerce  was  held  at Delmonico's tonight, and brought together five hundred  representative business men of New York.  There  were also   a   number   of   distinguished  guests.      President Jessup presided.    His  introductory  remarks   were  brief.   After congratulating the members  of the chamber upon the prosperous condition  of the  country, he proposed the  toast,   "The   President   of   the   United  States."    The toast was drunk  standing.  Next president Jessup  proposed  a  toast,  to " Queen Victoria," while the orchestra  played "God Save the Queen."    The principal speakers were  governor Roosevelt  and Whitelaw Reed, editor  of the New  York  Tribune.    Mr.  Reed spoke to  the  toast,  "' The existing  friendly relations  between  the   United  States  and  Great  Britain.   He said:   "Longago  Thomas  Jefferson    remarked    that    of   all    the  nations    of    the   earth,   Great   Britain  could do us the most harm, and therefore  we should-sedulously*-cultivate a .cordial  friendship with   her.   These .later days  have shown that of all the nations of the  earth,   Great   Britain   and   the   United  States can give each other the most cheer  aud do each other the most good.    There  is a nobler motto ou  both sides for the  .same sedulous cultivation  of this cordial  friendship.    In  the  lamentable  wars in  which both are for the moment unhappily involved, the most either need do is  hope for the other as for itself, an honorable and a speedy end to conflicts which  neither   began.     Few   thinking   people  seriously suppose  either war can have  any but the one obvious and  inevitable  result.     The heavier battalions will win.  For   the   rest,   whatever   may   be   the  natural sympathies aroused for the feebler side in either war, and whatever may  be      urged     in      partial    justification  of   the   attacks    by    which   they   precipitated     hostilities,    the    dispassionate    observer   will    not    doubt    that  in    both    cases,    the    end    which     is  thus foreseen from the beginning will be  bestfor the-security of-personal rights,-  for tlie ordered liberty, and the advancing  civilization of the world.   We cannot'but  regret that  the victory will bring some  natural pangs to as noble a race as dwells  in Europe,  the   race   that   stood like a  rock   when   the   blood   of   Spanish aggression    threatened    to   overflow   the  continent, the race that gave to England  William   of   Orange,   aud   to   America  the city of New York.     But Dutch sympathy   with  illusory   Afrikander aspirations will breed a blood feud, meanwhile  it cannot   prevent the return of good  relations   between   two   people of   the  world nearest to ourselves in origin, aims  and   interests,   .the   two   great nations  ruled from London and Berlin.    Thatp it  is evident   that .there  is a  momentous  moment in the world's history, auspioious  for us and auspicious for the solution of  the eastern problems, in which we must  now bear our share.   No doubt it is our  duty to cultivate friendly relations with,  all   peoples,   aud   they   be   right -who  say     that      in     general    we     should  seek   no   special   relations   with   any;  but you cannot overrule the forces of nature, or bind with the parchment of diplomatists the  hidden and  desirable  influences of blood and history.    I say without  hesitation, that if  there are  three  great nations iu the worid that God and  nature   meant   for    eternal   peace   and  amity with each other,  those  three are  Great Britain, Germany and the United  States.   T'liere is obviously every reason  why England and Germany should now  be friends, yet more should be the United  States welcome and prize the growing  friendship of such."  After eommenting on the close commercial relations between, the three countries,  Mr. Reid continued: "We have pledged  the open door in the Philippines to Spain  by a document wliich is now the supreme  London, November 21.���The announcement from Durban  that  communication  with  Estcourt  is  interrupted  seems  to  confirm the belief that a Boer commando  has established itself at Willgrauge,  or  near the Mooi river, and have cut the  wires.    Nevertheless, whatever definite  knowledge the British officers may have  obtained from the scouts of the  disposition of the Boer commandos in Natal and  the condition of the beleaguered garrison,  nothing has been allowed to develop for  the public information. It is certain that  owing to the hard work of debarkation  and entraining at Durban, the  preparations for the advance of the relief force  are   in   no   wise   in   so   advanced   a  shape   as   has   been   supposed.      This  may    also    be    due    to    the    necessity   of   pushing   stores  and   provisions  to the front in needful quantities before  the troops are sent.    On the other hand,  the dispatch with which troops are being  rushed forward from Cape Town equally  tends to show that all such preparations  regarding forage and provisions were already well advanced  before the troops  arrived at Cape Town. General Metheun's  baggage has arrived at De Aar addressed  to   "Lord Metheun", Pretoria, via  Cape  Town/'   *-'  The reoccupation of Naauwpoort is  good news for the British. It is not  known here from what points the troops  come, but it is believed they were from  DeAar, in which event it will riot be long  before Sternberg also is reoccupied.  Naauwpoort commands the gap in the  Kikvorshberg, the last strong fighting  position soutli of Orange river and admirably suited to Boer tactics.  Colonel Royston's dispatch from Ladysmith finally disposes of all reports of  another great British victory there last  Wednesday.  London, November 22.���Late last evening the war office made public two dispatches from general Buller,, who Ms at  Cape Town." The first had been received"  from general Cleary, dated' Monday, November 20th, and announced that .three*  privates were wounded the previous day  at Mooi river. The second was from  colonel Baden-Powell, dated at Mafeking,  November 0th, saying: "All well here.  We have had a few successful sorties.  Our loss is 2 officers and 17 men killed  and 4 officers 29 men wounded. The enemy's loss is heavy. His numbers are decreasing, but his guns remain and shell  us. He keeps out of range of our small  guns. Have had no news from the outside since October 20th."  Durban, Monday, November 20.���  Seven hundred Boers from Weenen took  up a strong position on the highlands  thirteen miles south of Estcourt on Sunday, occupying Turner's farm, northeast  of the Mooi river. Major Thorneycroft,  with a detachment of mounted infantry  and Estcourt Carbineers, engaged the  Boers, of whom three were killed, including their commandant. The Boers withdrew, taking two hundred.head of cattle  captured at Turner's farm. The main  force south of Estcourt is reported to  have retired.  ji London, November 21.���The Cape Town  correspondent of the Daily Mail says preparations are  being  made   to  give the  LTnited States warships a hearty reception, in order to emphasize the appreciation by the  colonists of the meaning of  an American naval display in Soutli African waters at the present juncture. ,  - Durban,      November       21.���General  Cleary, acting  under instructions  from  general Buller, has issued a proclamation  announcing   that   the  government   will  exact full compensation for damage done  to the property of loyalists.  : Cape Town, November 21.���The Midland News says Messrs. Vauderwalt and  Gobera, members  of the Cape assembly,  joined the Boer forces at Colesburg.  ! Estcourt, November 21.���Rumors of  the glorious victory achieved by general  White on Wednesday last are still unconfirmed.    Little  credence  is  attached  to  this, especially, it   is added, as general  .White threatened  to place  many hundreds of prisoners iu conspicuous places  should the shelling of the town continue.  Reports received from the southward .say  the Boers  are  separating into foraging  and  pillaging   parties,  who  are looting  stores,   stealing   cattle   and   ransacking  houses.    It is added  one farmer became  so incensed  that  he  stalked  a party of  160, eventually shooting  eight of them.  The Boer force   occupies a position on  Mooi river,  ten miles  below Mooi River  station.       - t  London; November 22.���The war "correspondent of the Standard at TUstcourt  telegraphs as follows, under Monday's  date: " No actual confirmation can be  obtained of the report tliat general Joubert has moved from his position in front  of Ladysmith. Our spies have ascertained beyond a doubt that several small  commandos are working southward.  There is a growing belief here that we  will move towards Ladysmith about the  end of this week,"  The duke of Portland has contributed  .��10,000 for Red Cross Society work in  South Africa.  From the breast of this tunnel a drift  was run which encountered a chute of  rich ore. The chute was run through in  and being stoped to the surface produced  something over 500 tons of ore averaging  130 ounces silver and 2.5 per cent lead.  The drift was then continued along and  200 feet from the tunnel the second chute  of grey copper ore was encountered this  week. In the second chute the company  has 14 inches of clean ore which samples  2.3(5 ounces silver. The extent of the  chute has not been determined, but four  men and a mucker are stoping five tons  of ore per 'day from it.  Development work is being pushed on  the lower level where a cross-cut tunnel  has been driven 12;*. feet. From this a  drift has been started and according to  surveys made the ledge should be encountered in about 20 feet. This level  will give an additional depth of 100 feet  on the dip of the vein. The Noonday-  Curley company employs all told seventeen men and pays the union scale for  eight-hour shifts.  REFUSES TO ALLOW MACRUM  MONASHEE   MOUNTAIN   MINES  May Make Money.  If old man Mclntyre, who discovered  the Monashee mine on the mountain of  that name, lives a few years more, he will  in all probability see a great mining  camp in the district in wliich he labored  with such indifferent success some  eighteen years ago. When the Cherry  creek placer excitement was on in 18S1-82,  a prospector uamed Mclntyre located a  rich quartz ledge on Monashee mountain  and staked three claims. He interested  Forbes G. Vernon in the find, and a Huntingdon mill was placed upon the property. The ledges were rich, but the mill  would not save the gold and Forbes G.  Vernon  eventually  let  his   interest  go.  the  law of  the land as well as the  constitution, and what we gave to Spain we shall  not refuse to the most favored  nations.  The   Philippines then are,   though our  possession, added to the commercial map  of the world, and I venture to think that  in  the century that is dawning they will  fill a large space upon it.    Does anyone in  this company  of great   merchants ask,  What good -our trade-with them will be  to uslif they are open to everybody?   Let  me answer by asking,  What  good  our  trade with  Great Britain is to us?   It is  open to  everybody.    Or  our' trade with  France or with  Germany?   Does anyone  believe  that, with  the  political control  and with the Pacific  ocean iu our hands,  we must still be such feeble competitors  in eastern markets that we cannot- command trade?   I have not thus rated the  enterprise or the ability of my countrymen.   So we welcome to the east all the  world, and that those we shall see often-  est there will be our English and our German friends. Together we shall enter the  vast awakening of that unknown country  where dwell one-fourth of the people of  the world, and  together, in peaceful rivalry, we must bear our respective shares  of the white  man's  burden  iu the dark  places of the earth."  MiNEOWNERS AND MINEWORKE  Adjust Their Differences.  New Denver, November 21.���The  labor difficulty in the Slocan has been  amicably settled on a peaceful basis. A  conference was held last night till a Late  hour at Sandon between a delegation of  mine owners, headed by Carl Hand, and  the Miners' Union. Satisfactory arrangements were made for the -opening of the  mines at ooce. By December 1st it is expected that the eamp will be iii full  swing. 'Several men passed through 'here  today for the Payne, whieh opens with a  full force immediately. Full union wages  are to be paid, the mine owners securing  the right to discharge men when necessary. It is considered a big victory for  the union. The best of feeling-prevails  between the parties.  Were "Jolly Good Fellows."  Windsor,  November   21.���The   state  banquet held today in  St.  George's  hall  was asi unusually  brilliant  affair.     The  queen received her  guests  in  the king's  guard chamber,  famous  for  its gobelin  tapestries.     The queen sat in the centre  of the  long  table, facing the  prince of  Wales.     On her right was emperor Wil-  ~liam~ah~d~on���her- lef t~ the"_duke~ of ~Coi\-  naught.    Empress Augusta Victoria sat  on the right of the prince of Wales. The  toasts were very formal.     The prince of  Wales rose first, saying:    "By command  of the queen, the  German  emperor-and  empress," this was followed by the German national anthem.    Emperor William  raised  his glass   to   the   simple words,  "The   Queen," after  which   the British  national anthem was played.    As it was  her birthday, the prince of Wales toasted  the empress Frederick, and the German  national    anthem    was    again    played.  Arthur Balfour was unable to be present.  Will Fight Next~Year.  Nkw York, November 21.���James Jeffries and James J. Corbett were matched  today to fight for the heavyweight chain  pionship   of   the   world  September 15th, 1900.  on    or   about  At Nelson.  H. J. Stewart, president of the Noonday-Curley Mining Company of Silver-  ton, arrived in Nelson yesterday with a  50-ton shipment of high grade ore which  will be treated at the Hall Mines smelter.  This is the second shipment which has  been made to the local^smelter from the  Noonday-Curley company's ���property,  .and if satisfied with their treatment the  eompany will make regular' weekly shipments- Of 40 tons,  The Noonday property continues to  develop well. Another important strike  was made this week in the 200-foot drift  off the first level which lias greatly enhanced the value of the property. It  was from this level that all the ore shipments from the property has been taken. I  To Exercise Powers of British Agent.  London, November 2L���President Kruger's refusal to allow United States consul Macrum to exercise the powers of  British agent at Pretoria has resulted in  great disappointment. There were many  callers at the United States embassy today, who were informed that the United  States was no longer able to forward  messages or secure information regarding the British prisoners. Though  Mr. Macrum apparently still remains  the nominal agent of Great Britain, he is  practically deprived of all powers pertaining to the position. It is understood  that president Kruger objected to Mr.  Macrum representing Great Britain on  the ground that the United States claims  to neutrality were prejudiced, by  her evident friendship for ' Great  Britain, All communications- to 5 the  Bi'itish prisoners .now go ' through  the' ordinary military *' channels,  which render their ultimate, delivery  doubtful,' and .certainly the Bi'itish gov-,  eminent so far-has not taken* any steps  to change the present condition of the  prisoners. A- government official informed a representative of the Associated'  .Press that he did not see any good in  trying to get any other power to act in  their behalf, as president Kruger would  doubtless treat its representative'in the  same, manner that he had treated the  representative of the United States.  ���"Moreover," the official added, "it is not  likely that president Kruger will  be     there     loug. If     we    did    ask  any other power to act in behalf of  Great Britain it would possibly be  Portugal."    A Display of Bed Flags Explained.  Paris, November 21.���In the Chamber  of Deputies yesterday, M. Alacot, Republican, brought up the question of the display of red flags in  connection  with the  ceremony of unveiling on the Place de la  Nation the statue symbolizing the " Triumph of the Republic" by the  president  "of"tlie republic,~R17TJoubet7~at^vliicir~tl*e  premier, M.  Waldeck-Rousseau,  and the  other members of the cabinet  weE-e  present, iu addition to an immense crowd of  people.    M.  Alacot   said   he  wanted  to  know if the government had  authorized  the display of the flags ��� referred  to, and  remarked  sarcastic-ally that'M.  Loubet,'  "with admirable tact," had  turned away  when the red flags approached.    The premier  replied   that  the government   had  not authorized the  carrying  of any rod  Hags in the procession, adding that whatever' discordant notes  had   been  struck  yesterday they only served to emphasize  the     magnificent     acclamation     which  greeted the republic and  its first"* magistrate.        Continuing^   the    premier    remarked : " It is useless to endeavor to cx-  cifce public opinion   by raising   tlie flag  bogie, as was done'fifty years ago."   This  statement called forth loud cheers   from '���  the left.   The  premier then   moved   the j  order of the day, which  Avas  adopted by j  a vote of 320 to 230. I  Sensational News From Vancouver.  Vancouver, November 21.���Quite a  sensation has been caused in Methodist  church circles by the retirement of Rev.  W. E. Moody, pastor of the congregation  at Fairview. Mr. Moody i.s said to be out  of harmony with the doctrines of the  Methodist church and may join the Paith  Healers.  According to a statement of two  Indians who came down from North Vancouver this morning, three of the tribesmen were drowned this morning opposite  the city. The men who met their death  were an old man named Ambrose and  two young unmarried men.  There is more trouble in Samoa, high  chief Tuisila killed a couple of natives  witli a revolver and was afterwards assassinated.  The claims were crown granted and  property has remained idle for years,  though during its operation it is said  that $10,000 worth of rock was shipped  from it. Mclntyre is now seventy years  of age, and another partner who lives in  New Westminster has reached seventy-  five years. Their property is now said to  have an immense value. Samples taken  from the most westerly of their three  claims gives an average value of $10 per  ton in free gold, while the ledge on the  claims to the east on the Kettle river side  is so rich that free gold can be seen in  almost every shot that is put into it.  The Monashee mine was virtually forgotten till three years ago. and it was  not till John B. and Harry Olds and  Harry Page, who were ranching in Fire  Valley, made a prospecting trip around  Monashee mountain and the headwaters  of the Kettle river that anything further  was heard of the old property. The Olds  party also came upon good-looking quartz.  They located four claims and for two  years worked quietly upon their development. They were undisturbed, and before the outside public learned much' of  tlieir discovery they had done enough  work to show up a magnificent prospect.  Through their three claims four strong  parallel ledges run. Their mode of prospecting was the sinking of a number  of shafts, the deepest of which is  down 30 feet, and the running of open  cuts and stripping of the ledges which  has been done for 700 feet. The ledges  have a uniform width of about six feet,  but in one place one of them shows to a "  width of 40 feet, aud auother ledge with  a width of 3�� feet on tho surface widened out to 0i feet in 25 feet depth. The  ledges have walls of porphyry, the ledge  matter being brittle quartz carrying gold  values of from $10 to $03, and sampling it"  is said $10 to the ton.  'Curiosity as, to the value ofthe Olds*  property drew Robert Shtell arid other  Nelson men into the district last spring.  The Shiell brothers staked easterly and  westerly extensions of the Olds group but  have done nothing but. surface work so  far. Following them David Whitley, or'  Red Paddy as he is better known, staked  liis. celebrated group of prospects on  Monashee mountain, from which . practically no work-done upon them some of  tlie richest gold specimens seen in  Kootenay have' been taken. "Ou- the  same mountain George Doyle and Fred  Williamson have located claims" from,  which bitr surface assays have been  made, and last week Robert Madden,  Mickey Monaghan and Mike O'Brien  staked eight other claims in* the neighborhood of Red Paddy's find, two of them  being extensions of his group. '     -       ���*     .  Robert Shiell, who was the leader of  the latest rush into the Monashee dis--  trict, says that the section has everything  to warrant a liberal expenditure of  money. The district so far covered is  about six miles square in extent, and.all  told about fifty claims have been staked.  The ledges appear to be uniformly strong,  but in most instances it is necessary to'  get down to the solid quartz before values  can be obtained. The Olds have beeu  offered substantial prices for tlieir property, but they'decline to .sell. Tliey will  be the only claim owners in the district  to work this winter, but upon the result  of (heir work will iu a, great measure depend other. operations in the f-pring.  Tliey are now running a crosscut tunnel  to tap the four parallel ledges. They cut.  the first-ledge in fourteen feet, but at  practically no depth,' and have J00 feet'  to run to reach the' farthest ledge upon  which they will have attained a depth of  200 feet. The best way into the district  is by way of Vernon, if supplies arc to bo  taken iu, as the Cherry (.'reek wagon road  runs within five miles of the camp, but  for men going in light the camp can be  made by a 30-mile ride over the trail up  Kire valley.  A Barley King Gone Broke.  Moxtkkai., November 21.���This morning judge Wurtelc was abked to grant a  connni.*-.,siou to proceed to Chicago and*  take evidence in support of the charge  of fraud against Mrs. Grace Evangeline  O'Neill, wife of Henry O'Neill, the Chicago "barley king," who has gone broke.  Tlie judge promised his decision tomorrow morning. The police court hearing  was postponed until this decision is  given. Mrs. O'Neill brought $50,000  worth of jewelry to Montreal, and her  husband's creditors are after it.  Woodbury Creek Mines Will Ship Ore.

The Spokane .Review says that the

the bni Id ing of a smelter at Spokane.
The railroad company is, probably doing
nothing of the sort. What it probably
is doing is bucking the Gieat Northern in
its efforts to haul British Columbia ore to
Spokane or anywhere else in
the fiuted States to be smelted,
and in doing .so it should be
backed up by every Canadian who believes in country fh'ot. There are two
smelters in operation and one standing
idle in .southern Kootenay, tind two under
construction in southern Yale. Every

CURRENT RATE OK INTEREST PAID  MAN   IS   GROWING   BETTER.  Mankind is not deteriorating.    Cei't.iin  alarmists are continually cryint. out that  tlie human , race,   having   reached   the  pinnacle of material  prosperity, has lost  its hai'dy virtues.    They admit superior  excellence iu individuals,  but argue that  the man  of today has  become enervated  and  degenerate.    Tliey say tliat   lie  is  overworked  and unfed.    They say that  he has become emasculated by twentieth  century civilization ; that he is deteriorating  physically, mentally and  morally.  These prophets of evil then go on to particularize.    They point out that the long  and irregular hours of labor, continuing  in many discs far into the night, and the  high pitch to which the nervous system  is wrought  in performing the constant  brain work required of the man of today,  strain to the snapping point the vitality  of  the individual, and lead  to the  constant use of   stimulants.     They   attest  these arguments by indicating tlie enormous total increase in the consumption of  liquor, coifee,  tea and other stimulating  drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic.    To-  . bacco also they say is almost universally  used today.  Such opinions are not shared by W. J.  McCJee, chief of the United States, bureau  of ethnology, whose business is to study  just such questions.  "Man is today at the high-water mark  of his development as compared with the  past,'" he said, wlienh questioned on the  bubject. "Looking forward, it may be  safely predicted, iu view of- tho~ present progress that the 1,500,000,000 of  human beings who inhabit the globe are  making', that to are on the eve of a development which as far transcends that  of the present tis the present surpasses  that of centuries since. There is a certain class of prophets, and historians  whieh is continually trying to impress  upon the men of today their inferiority  to their parents in all ways except those  of material progress. The son, tliey say,  is not the physical, mental aud moral  equal of his father. They look ever backward for good, and so distorted does their  vision become that in looking forward  they can see nothing but evil. Now this  view is wrong ; lot me emphasize this  point. It is totally wrong. The son of  tomorrow will prove a better man in  every w.iy than the father of today. He  will far surpass iu the elements that goto  make up real manhood the grandfather  of yesterday. Let this, too, be emphasized, but do not lee it be misunderstood.  The world is moving on ward aud upward.  "One of the best indications of the  strength of a race, all things considered,  J���is the longevity-of its peopIes7~~Kece__bly  tliere have been exhumed from the ruius  of Pompeii a number of actuaries' tables.  In these the ancient Italian insurance  agents had worked out carefully the expectation of life for the people with whom  tliey did business. When the Italian  actuaries' tables were compared with the  actuaries* tables of the insurance companies now doing business in the United  tifcates, a remarkable condition wtis found  to obtain at present. It was discovered  that the expectation of life of the American citizen exceeds by eleven years the  expectation of the ancient Italian. The  average expectation of life in the United  States exceeds by two years tho average*  expectation of life in Kngland. The estimates for l_.ngl.uul exceed iu turn the estimates for France, Germany and Italy  and the rest of Europe, taken as a whole,  by about two years.  "Auother important factor which must  >je considered witli the question of the  improvement of mankind, is that of  stature. It is a fact that the average  American of' today is a taller man thau  the average founder of this country.  The average Englishman of today is unable to encase himself in the armor which  his forebears on either side wore at the  battle of Hastings, By way of comparison it may be remarked that the Ameri.  can is an inch taller than the Englishman,  while the Englishman in turn is an inch  tallet than the average Continental."  "How does the average wliite man compare with the -savage in point of  strength V" was asked,  "I presume that you have in mind the  Indian and his traditional superiority in  point of strength and endurance ?" was  the answer. "Now, I have lived a long  time among the Indians. If I know any-  "%''body I fancy tliat it is the red man, and  ' I can state positively that the white man  is his superior in every way. .In the .first  place the white man has more of that  quality known as bottom. The white  man can lift more, run further and faster,  he can work more, can see more aud in  the course of time and practice can beat  the Indian at any of his own games. No,  on the face of the globe the white man  has no equal.  "Then tliere is the question of athletic  records. Never a year rolls round that  numberless new records are not established. As a rule, the record of last year is  equalled or excelled this year. We cannot look back to any old records. They  all fall far within those of the present  day. Did not the athletes of the new  world in competition against the Greeks  at the Olympian games at Athens, break  all of the records of antiquity?  "I remember that when I wras a boy ou  athletic feat Of the day caused the greatest excitement. Some champion Avalker  accomplished the task of walking 1000  miles in 1000 consecutive hours. At the  time this was the talk of the country.  How many men do you think there are  in this country today who could accomplish this feat? I will venture to place  the figure between ten thousand and a  hundred  thousand.  "When Herbert Spencer came to this  country some years since, he made the  observation that the American people  were running themselves to .death. He  stated that he believed that they would  eventually become crazy, so great must  the resultant nervous strain be from  working at the high American speed.  Mr. Spencer was wrong. He failed to  realize that we were going only at our  normal pace. I would lay it down as a  geueral rule that people on the average  do what they .ire able to do, and that  what they actually do is the safest aud  truest measure of what they, can do. In  Berlin the average man walks at a rate of  two'and a half miles an hour; in London,  three ; in New York, three and a quarter,  aud in Chicago, Sail Francisco and Denver the latter pace is exceeded. But Mr.  Spencer would liave found, if he had  taken,the trouble to investigate, that the  average length of life iii America exceeds  the average in England and that the proportion of our population that is confined  within asylums for the insane is considerably less than in either England, France  or Germany. I believe that the .greater  amount of labor that the American is  able to stand is due, in considerable part  to a single cause. The American is the  breakfast eater of the world. He invariably commences the day with* a good  meal of strong, steam-producing food.  Consequently work is no drag on him and  he cau surpass easily in results the European who commences the day with little  but a roll and a cup of chocolate.  "What do you think of the statement  that the American people are ruining  their nerves by the consumption of coffee,  tea and tobacco ?"  "It is my opinion that the tea and  coffee alarmists have built their houses  mostly upon a foundation of sand. It is  true that the use of these beverages is increasing and has become almost universal.  But 1 am inclined to think that_they_are_  much more of a blessing than a curse to  the race. In fact, I have no doubt that  comfort, health aud longevity of the race  is increased by the use of coffee, and to a  lesser degree this statement is true of tea  as well. As to tobacco, we have no accurate data; but I have been greatly  interested in observing the extent to  which tobacco was used twenty or thirty  years * ago '��� and:i comparing its use then  with its use today. Then it was the exception to find a man who did not smoke  at, the end *of dinner. Today when dining I observe that at lea.st half of the  gentlemen refuse the cigars when they  are passed, around. Iu fact, there is  nothing so far as 1 know to indicate that  the per capita consumption of tobacco is  increasing. Moreover, I do not believe  that the use of tobacco is injurious in  most instances. In fact, there are cases  in which its use is positively beneficial.  "Is drunkenness and the consumption  of alcoholic liquors on the increase aud  does the former threaten to become a  universal evil among the American  people?"  "I   should   say decidedly, no! to any  questions of this kind.    We do not have  to  go far back into the history  of  the  Anglo-Saxon race to find a time when  drunkenness was rife.   Passing over the  days of ribaldry which marked the time  of Charles II. and the Georges in England,  we  come  to  the earlier decades  of the  present  century.    During   that time  in  our own American congress drinking was  the rule, and almost any niglit  numbers  of drunken congressmen  could  be found  gathered around the gambling tables and  in the saloons along Pennsylvania avenue.  Todtiy it is the rarest thing in the world  that  a  member of congress is seen in a  state of intoxication.   The spirit of this  age is against over indulgence in strong  drink.    Slowly but surely  drunkenness  and lewdness are becoming things of the  past.  " In conclusion it may be said that the  peoples of the world are increasing in  number from decade to decade. They  are increasing still more rapidly in individual accomplishment. Judged from  the standpoint of races, the white is becoming more and more predominant.  The enlightened races are growing longer  lived. The subjects of civilization are increasing more sloAvly ; the barbarians are  gaining but little, while the savage races  are losing. Throughout the world the  average length of life, the average intelli  gence and the average population is increasing from period to period. And  ever is the human race becoming better."  All Have Equal Rights.  Since the death of Charles A. Dana,  the brilliant editor of the Louisville  Courier-Journal, Henry Wattersou, is the  father and patriarch among American  journalists.' This is how he treats the  war in South Africa : " Whether in the  frigid zone or in tho tropics the English  government has adapted itself to the  wants and even the foibles of the,people,  and made them feel the inestimable value  of the British birthright. What it once  was to be a 'Roman citizen it is to be a  British subject in the nineteenth century  FULL LINE OF  The feeling that the majesty and power  of England are extended over  every one  of her hundreds of millions of subjects,  and the assurance  thus  giv.*n  them of  all the rights and  privileges  of life, are  things that Americans who have been in  the habit of looking upon  themselves  as  a   little   better than  Britons  have not  thoroughly realized.    It  is  fully understood elsewhere, as is shown  by the enthusiasm with  wliich  the colonists are  hastening to help their Titanic mother  help to strike down  the  puny forces of  the Boei'S. The lesson is an impressive one.  It teaches not only that the  Boers must  inevitably be overcome, but that  it will  be infinitely better for them  as  well  as  for the remainder of South Africa.    Civilization has a great deal  of work  to do  in   the   Dark   Continent,  and  the  best  workers   should   do   it.     The   English  stand  head  and shoulders as colonizers  above    Germans,    French    and    Portuguese,  who  divide   the   territory   with  her.    Under them not only the natives  will    receive    the    largest  possible  liberty, but the Dutch themselves will feel  the- quickening   influence of   a   higher  and better civilization.     The Boers may  be conquered, but they will still be permitted to  rule themselves, though  they  will not be allowed to rule other people.  Their unprogressive, wasteful, tyrannical  and corrupt government will give Avay to  an enlightenment that will lift them into a higher plane of life.    They are fighting now against their best destiny, but it  is  not conceivable  that they will fight  long, and it is to be hoped they will not."

Headquarters  LOCAL NEWS IN BRIEF;  The belated recommendation of the  board of trade, that tho city council  should submit a bylaw to raise funds for  the repair of the city wharf, reached the  city offices yesterday. As there is not  sufficient time in which to have the required bylaw submitted with the others,  which are to go before the ratepayers, it  is not likely that any action will be  taken.  Oue of tho tram cars to be used by the  local tramway company arrived in Nelson  last evening. It came from Peterboro  over tlie Crow's Nest road.  Tlie funeral of William Gregory, who  died in tlie general hospital, took place  yesterday.  Mr. and Mrs. John A. Turner and their  children and W. A. Jowett leave Nelson  this morning on the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway for a trip to England. They  will probably remain until spring. Their  friends wish them a safe trip across the  continent and ocean, an enjoyable time in  the old country, and reserve for them a  welcome when thev return.  Married at Nelson on the 21st instant,  by Rev. Robert Erew, Albert Ernest Taylor of New Denver and MissAdaFlorence  Davison of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Mr.  Taylor is accountant in the Bank of Montreal at New Denver.  Mrs. J. C. Rykert of Rykert's custom  house left last week on a visit to relatives  at Rochester, New York; and St. Catharines, Ontario.  W. P. Tierney & Co. are employing a  force of some forty men in the work of  improving the Columbia <fc Kootenay  railway line between Nelson and Robson.  Since they commenced work last summer  the contractors have paid a uniform  \. age of $2.50'per day for laborers and  have found difficulty in securing good  men even at this figure. They are making good progress on the work, but have  been unable to lay it out as first intended  so that a larger force could be employed  and the contract completed more speedily.  Industries That Benefit a Town. -  The Kootenay Cigar Manufacturing  Company has .secured five more cigar-  makers for its factory, three of whom are  on the way from Victoria and- two from  Kamloops. The demand for union-made  cigars is steadily supplanting the nonunion eastern brands, and the manager  of the local company says that'he expects to keep twenty men employed all  winter. Within the year the growth of  the Kootenay Cigar Company's business  has. been such that the force has gi-oTvn  from two men and a boy to twenty men.  The sales for the past month were the  largest in the company's experience. The"  cigar company employs almost as many  men as will the C. P. R, in its machine  shops, yet its manager lias not asked the  City of Nelson for a cent in the way of a  bonus.    Mail to Go by Bail Hereafter.  Mail for points in the Boundary country is to go by way of the Columbia &  Western railway hereafter, instead of via  Bossburg. Letters and payees should  reach Grand Forks and Greenwood by 3  o'clock in the afternoon every day except  Sunday. Returning trains leave Greenwood at I o'clock in the afternoon.

He  came direct from Cape Nome, which he  pronounces a good camp. There it. pay  dirt for 20 miles along the beach, and the  creeks that empty into Nome river are  very rich. There is no scarcity of gold,  but thei e is a scarcity of fuel. Lumber  was selling at $150 a thousand when Mr.  Blair left. About 5000 people "will winter in the district. * **  WE ARE SCORING  ANOTHER GREAT SUCCESS  in the sale of the stock of goods  which we purchased from the  stores of Messrs.
