 F  u  THE CITY COUNCIL CONSIDERS  Public Business.      ->  At the meeting of the city council yesterday morning the request of P. Burns  & Co. to be permitted to make a contract  with the West Kootenay Power & Light  Company for power to run their cold  storage plant was referred to a special  committee composed of aldermen  Fletcher, Beer and Hillyer. The committee will ascertain upon what terms it can  secure power for power purposes from  the company, and generally  fix  matters  so "that tho city will regulate  the power j  company and not the power company the  city, should it be decided to give the company an entrance to the city.  The tender of Allan Brothers for building the'cemetery fence was considered by  the city engineer to be too high and was  laid over.  Two tenders were received for the necessary plumbing in the fire hall and the  city hall. That of the Vancouver Hardware Company was $152, and that of  "'Strachan Brothers $177. The lowest  tender was accepted;  The application of W. F. Traves to  make a boulevard on Cedar street was referred to the city engineer.  The city solicitor tendered a legal opinion, upon Upon two subjects. The first  was the suggestion that it would be safer  to pass a .bylaw in closing any of the  streets, and the ��� second was that a graut  could not be made to the smelter band  unless it was made under the head of  education.  The water works amending bylaw was  reconsidered and finally passed and  adopted.  The matter of* engaging the services of  James McPhee to look after the city's  electric light system .was'broached by the  mayor. He said" that McPhee was a competent man aud was thoroughly acquainted with the city system.    He could  FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 17,  1899.  PUBLipHBD AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  A RAILWAY RUNS ROUGH SHOD  Over a Mine Owner.  There was an engagement at Duck  Creek, on the line of the Nelson <fc Bedlington railway, one day this week, that  may htive far-reaching results. O. J.  Wigen is the owner of a number of mineral claims at Duck Creek, and he has  crown grants for some of them. The  railway "company's right-of-way crosses  the crown granted claims, and while the  company's" land, agent was profuse in  promises to settle for the land used, his  promises were like soap bubbles. The  graders, in time, followed the right-of-  way man, and they filled up shafts and  closed tunnels, just as if shafts and tunnels were not needed in the working of  mines. Further appeals to the right-of-  way agent were replied to with fair  words, but no cash.  The  tracklayers, in  time,  made their  THE LATEST FROM SOUTH AFRICA  appearance, and Mr. Wigen  prepared to  be secured for $125 per month and his  knowledge of construction work would  be of great benefit to the city. The suggestion was favorably commented upon  bu t action was deferred.  Evening Session.  At the evening; session of the council, a  request was made by chief Thompson,of  the fire department requesting that an  addition 24 by 30 feet be made to the fire  hall, the members of the department offering to do the work if the council supplied the material. The matter was referred to the city engineer.  A communication was read from Hon.  0. A. Semlin stating that the executive  had passed an order-in-councii ��� reserving  to the city a strip of land 75 feet wide,  from high to low water mark, the same  being a continuation of Hall street, for  the use of the city for water front purposes.  - Alderman Hillyer suggested that steps  be taken by the city to secure the water  front rights from Stanley to Ward street,  as he understood that the same had not  been secured by anyone.  Alderman Fletcher suggested that the  best plan would be to secure from tiie  government a statement showing what  water front rights liad been secured by  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company  and then apply to the government for  the balance of the water front. This  suggestion was adopted.  The council decided to build a four-  foot sidewalk on Vernon street from  Stanley to Railway street, to continue  the present sidewalk on the east side of  Stanley street from the Elliot block to  tho registry office on  Vernon street, and  'f.  to lay a three-plank sidewalk on the south  side of Junes street from Stanley to Ward  streefC'  A letter was read from the Kootenay  Electric Supply & Construction Company  stating that the company's contract with  the city was completed, and asking the  city to take the work over and pay the  $4825 due upon the contract, The communication was laid over pending the report of the city engineer.  With respect to the selection of the 40-  acre tract of land in the Columbia & Koo-  teiiay'-1-mile block that blankets the city,  the mayor and the city engineer were  instructed to look over the ground and  report to the council.  The council decided to call for tenders  for the making of water connections under the amended waterworks bylaw, the  city tojrnake the excavations and supply  materials.  The council then discussed the bylaws  which should be submitted to the ratepayers. There would be the C. P. R. bylaw and bylaws to issue additional debentures upon electric light and waterworks  account. The city clerk thought that  $7000 additional for waterworks and  $8000 for electric light would meet the  requirements. The matter was laid over  till the finance committee meeting on  .Saturday morning, when the exact figures can be supplied.  Alderman Beer expressed tlie hope that  the council.would submit a bylaw for the  issue of debentures for the building of a  city hall, but the suggestion was not well  received and the matter dropped.  Alderman Hillyer was requested to  meet the members of the school board at  their next meeting, and see what steps  were being taken to secure the necessary  legislation at the approaching session of  the legislature to have ii high school  opened iu Nelson and vest the control of  the present school in the municipality; .  prevent their crossing his  property.    He  erected a fence across the  grade, pitched  a tent alongside the feuce, and employed  two men to stand guard night and  day.  On Monday the tracklayers came rushing  along, but stopped at the fence, although  they were.a hundred strong.    They were  hired to lay track, but not to clear right-  of-way.    Although  urged  by   the chief  engineer of  tne road, who happened to  come to the front  at  the  time, they  refused to touch  the  fence.    The railway  men  did  not know what to do, so they  retired to Creston and  held a council of  war.    After  due deliberation,  colon. 1 G  T. Stone of Kaslb,' who is a justice of the  peace, was sent for.   He arrived the next  day, and a  special  train  was rushed to  the front  with  the  gallant colonel  and  the tracklayers, a hundred strong.    They  were met at the fence by Mr. Wigen and  his two fusileers.    Tho tracklayers were  repeatedly   ordered   to   tear "down   tlie  fence by the colonel from* Kaslo,  and as  repeatedly warned not to do so by commando Wigen.   They invariably obeyed  the   commando.      Finally,   seeing   that  the tracklayers would not do the bidding  of the colonel, chief engineer Miller  of  the railway'company  did  the'work  of  demolition  assisted  by the  foreman  of  the   gang.      Mr.   Wigen's   effects  were  pitched off the  right-of-way,  and  both*  parties started back to Creston, to make  arrests, which was done in due time.  Ou Wednesday the case against Mr.  Wigen was heard before two justices, one of  whom is the railway company's townsite  agent at Creston. The hearing, on the  request of the defendant, was postponed  until the 23rd, in oi'der to allow of counsel being present. In the meantime, the  rails of the railway company have been  laid to and connected with the Crowds  Nest road. The end will be that Mr.  Wigen will get soap bubbles, the lawyers  what little money the railway will be  compelled to pay, and the people a standard gauge railway from Kuskonook to  Bonner's Ferry.   Aguinaldo Hard Pressed.   Manila, November 1(5.���Aguinaldo and  his government are said to be making  desperate efforts to escape to Bayom-  bong. All information here is that he is  still in the low country. Lieutenant  Johnston, with a troop of thirty cavalry,  captured yesterday at San Nicolas twelve  barrels containing the wardrobe of  Aguinaldo's wife, some personal effects,  the records of the secretary of war, and  much commissary and medical supplies.  Senora Aguinaldo probably escaped over  the divide, but the secretary of war is  thought to be inside the lines. Thomas  W. Hayes, a civilian, and Calvin S. Davis  of the Sixteenth infantry, who were held  prisoners by tlie insurgents, have beeu  rescued.  -   A Canadian Girl Acquitted.  Pikknix, Arizona, November 1(5.���Pearl  Hart, the alleged woman bandit, who  was charged with holding up a stage  near Florence, was acquitted last night.  Miss Hart addressed the jury in her own  defence and pleaded passionately for  freedom that she might return to Toledo,  Ohio, to her fast-failing mother. Immediately after her acquittal the woman  was rearrested, charged with interfering  with the United States mails, and will be  tried again. She is a Canadian by birth,  having been born at Lindsay, Ontario.  Prominent Dry Goods Merchant Dead,  Montreal, November 16.���Robert Linton, one of the most prominent dry goods  merchants in this city, is dead* For over  a quarter of a century he was connected  with the firm of Robert Linton .&. Co.,  wholesale drygoods, formerly William  Stephen & Co., of which George .Stephen,  now lord Mount Stephen, was a member.  The-firm "dissolved about two years, ago  and the business was continued by dis-  ceased until about a year ago, when he  retired and the business -was"' wound up.  London,   November    17.���Misfortune  steadfastly pursues  the  employment of  armored   trains.     The   misfortune   has  given  the   Boers their first and latest  victories.     On the last occasion the British seemed to have walked into a deliberate trap, with the result, according  to the British-accounts, that ninety are  either killed, wounded or  missing.     Of  these the Fusileers claim  fifty and the  Durban .infantry forty.    It is  believed  that a few escaped and that others are  prisoners.    Many of the wounded were  brought back on the locomotive and tender of the armored train.     Captain  Hal-  dane   of   the ; Gordon Highlanders was  attached   to   the  Fusileers,   and    other  officers were with   them.     The list of  casualties is awaited with great anxiety.  In the time of trouble lieutenant^ Winston    Churchill     has      proved    himself  more a-soldier thau a correspondent, and  his   gallantry is  highly  praised  on  all  sides.    The rumor of the death of general Joubert is discredited.    It is  understood that the-*war office  has  news that  he is  .still  directing affairs.    It  is  also  rumored fronitPieterraaritzburg that the  Boer losses at  Ladysmith  on  Thursday  were heavy, arid included general Lucas  Meyer, who was either killed or wounded.  The report as to general Joubert  probably arose from the fact that his wife has  left the Boer camp at Ladysmith for the  Free State.   According   to   the   Pieter-  niaritzburg correspondent of the London  Outlook, rumors are current in the Natal  capital that the Boers contemplate a retreat. ��� '���.-It   is   not   policy,   however,   to  attach importance to such reports, which  are spread with a view of luring  general  White, if possible, to abandon his defensive attitude. .Similar  rumors are current  regarding  the Boers at Mafeking,  and are spread industriously by native  spies.  Special dispatches from Lorenzo Marquess say that the Transvaal government  is exercising a severe censorship over all  war news, and will not allow newspapers  to leave the country. One correspondent says that the Boers are hurrying new  commands to Ladysmith, and ai e declaring that the place must fall speedily iu  order to liberate their forces so that tliese  may go to meet general Buller's advance.  Tiie latest dispatches from Estcourt regarding the armored train engagement,**  say that,the train was capsized by- an  explosion, presumably of dynamite. The  engine 'returned to Estcourt with two  dead Fusileers and the following wounded hanging ou : Captain Wylie, three  non-commissioned officers and nine privates, all volunteers,  Durban, November 13.���The Pretoria  Volkstein announces that Blake, the  American colonel of the Irish-Boer brigade, and Vanden, the commander of the  Johannesburg police, have beeu wounded.  Lorenzo Marqubz, November 16.���  A local newspaper reports that Ladysmith was subjected to a very heavy  bombardment all day Tuesday, and that  at midnight all the cannon on the hills  -around-tho-town opened���fire- simultaneously, pouring in shells from all points.  Several buildings were set afire and could  be distinctly seen from the hills, the  paper asserted.  The Coal Mines Arbitration.  Victoria, Novomber 16.---[Special to  The Tribune.]���When the coal mines arbitrators met at Nanaimo today attorney-  general Henderson called as a first witness George Campbell, fire boss for the  New Vancouver Coal Company, who  gave his opinion that Chiuamcu are a  source of danger in mines, based on his  experience in the New Vancouver Company's mines while Chinamen were employed there. Witness having stated  that ho had never been in tlie Wellington or Union mines, Cassidy objected to  to the evidence with respect to other  than the mines whose owners are parties  to this arbitration, but it was decided to  admit geueral evidence. Five other  witnesses gave opinions to the same  effect. Cassidy renewed the application  refused yesterday, to have sittings at the  Union mines, reading a declaration that  otherwise a fair hearing would be impossible, and the arbitrators finally ac-  cceded to the request. The proceedings  promise to be lengthy. ���  Manitoba Election to be in December.  Winnipeg, November 10.���The writ  for the Manitoba provincial elections was  issued today. Nominations take place on  November 30th; polling on December  7th. Many eastern politicians are expected here shortly to take part in the  fight.        -     -   - _*-  Arriving at Both Cape Town and Durban.  London, November 10.���The transport  Mohawk, having the Twelfth Lancers on  board, has arrived at Cape Town.: The  transport Armenian, with three batteries  of artillery, has reached Durban.  Estcourt, November 16.���10 a.m.���A  missionaryi7a native, but a reliable man,  who arrived here yesterday  from  Ladysmith,  reports that a fight   took   place  there   on   Friday, November 10th.   He  says volunteers went  out  iu  the  early  morning and drew the enemy from  tlieir  positions, when the regular troops under  sir  George -White,  out-manoeuvred the  Boers by outflanking . them,  administering a crushing defeat and inflicting great  loss.    More than 200 Kaffirs, the missionary says, were employed by the Boers in  burying their dead, and two trains, each  drawn by two engines, carried away the  wouttded.   '���*���.'-  Another Estcourt correspondent says:  "A Boer contingent of. 300 men came  south of Frere on Wednesday, aud two  companies of: mounted troops, Imperial  light horse and Natal carbineers, engaged  them eight miles from Estcourt, the Boers  occupying.a strong position on a kopje.  .The carbineers worked around on their  right and drove them back, whereupon  the Imperial light horse opened a brisk  tfire at a medium range, killing several.*  One man of the Imperial light horse was  wounded. The West Yorkshire regiment,  the 'Prince of Wales' Own,' commanded  by colonel Kitchener, brother of lord  Kitchener of Khartoum, has arrived at  Estcourt from Durban. The troops there  'sleep in their boots,' and the utmost vigilance is maintained, and it is rumored  that some important movement is imminent."  According to a special dispatch from  Lorenzo Marquez*, general Lucas Meyer  has gone to Pretoria'fbr his health. Moreover, a difference of opinion exists among  the commanders. ~ The Boer military  counsel wants the army to move elsewhere, but general Joubert insists that  Ladysmith must fall first.  The postal authorities at Durban open  and inspect all letters from Delagoa  Bay. ,-  London, November 1(5,���The Cape  Town correspondent of the Standard says  he has heard from au old resident, who  ha*, just left tho Orange FreeState, that  the war is very unpopular there', that  apart from the government itself, the  attitude of the people who consider themselves Jbound-* to England is very halfhearted, that disaffection and disobedience is spreading in the ranks of the  Free State troops and the burghers  would welcome any pretext to return to  their homes.  London, November 10.���Special dispatches from Estcourt estimate the  wounded aud missing of the armored  train contingent at from 100 to 150. The  missing include captain JIaldant. Jt is  hoped that some escaped over the veldt  and will return to Estcourt in a few  days.  London, November 16.���The Times  publishes the following dispatch from  Pietermaritzburg, dated Wednesday,  November 15th: "Estcourt is short of  artillery. The garrison may rethe south-  warcl to the Mboi river tonight in case a  strong force of-Boers should advance  The enemy's intention is to keep  the British relieving corps.'"  back  "Not In the.Combine,  Grand Forks, November 16.���The report which has been given widespread  publicity to the effect that the sawmill  owners of the - Boundary country have  formed a combine, with a capital of  $1,000,000, is a pure fabrication and has  no foundation in fact. E. SpraggeM, a  prominent local mill owner, is authority  for the statement that neither he nor  any of the other lumber manufacturers  in this section have joined the alleged  trust. He says he is unaware of the existence of any combination of Boundary  mills having for its object the raising of  prices of lumber products.  America's Friendship One of Affection.  London, November 15.���George Windham, parliamentary under secretary of  state for war, before his constituents at  Dover this evening, said that next to the  affection which the colonies felt for the  mother country he would place the  friendship of the Americans. "The  friendship between the American republic and the British empire," declared the  speaker, "is one of the most dramatic  and may become one of the most momentous and far-reaching, episodes iu modern  history. It does not, however, imply  hostility to any other great yower,"  Got to Close Quarters at Ladysmith.  Cape Town, November 15���A despatch  received here from Pretoria, under date  of Thursday tho 9th, says reports from  Ladysmith said heavy cannonading started at daybreak, that some of .the Boers  were within .1500. yards of * the British  lines when the cannonading .ceased and  the rifle fn-e commenced.     .

Frank L. Christie of  Sandon is solicitor for the applicants.  A Concession to Wearers of Sealskins,  Detroit, November 1(5.���Washington  authorities have modified tlie original  ruling of the regulations regarding sealskins brought into the United States by  foreign tourists, which now permits  tourists to make affidavits before notaries at port of arrival instead of port of  departure.

Maher and "Kid"-'McCoy hVety this afternoon and decided to fight twenty-five  rounds before the Coney Island .Club on  December llth for a purse ofy$20,000. A  new. set of articles was agreed on and  signed by both men.  AN ARMORED TRAIN DERAILED  And Troops Captured.  Estcourt, Natal, Wednesday, November 15.���An  armored   train,  having  on  board  a  half company of  the  Durban  volunteers aiid  a  half company  of  the  Dublin Fusileers, steamed  to  Chieveley  early this morning.    On its return it was  shelled   by  the artillery  of the  Boers.  Two cars iu front of the engine left the  rails and toppled over.     While the train  was thus helpless, the Durbans and Dub-  lins faced the Boers in skirmishing order  and the Boers poured shot and shell into  the crippled  train.     The  derailed  cars  were with great difficulty removed and  the line  was  cleared.    The  engine, and  tender steamed back during this juncture.  Lieutenant    Winston   Churchill of   the  Fourth   Hussars,   correspondent of   the  London  Morning   Post  and   New York  World, displayed much courage.     It is  feared the  Dublins  and . Durbans fared  badly.    A red cross party has gone out.  Durban,   November    1(5.���The   Natal  Advertiser has a dispatch from Estcourt  which says : "When part of the armored  train was overturned by the Boers  tearing up the rails, the British alighted and  exchanged volleys with the Boers. , The  engine driver, when  the  rails  Avere Replaced,   seeing   the    situation   hopeless,  steamed back to Estcourt with a few of  the Dublins*and fifteen of the  Durbans,  including    "captain    Wylie,     wlui    was  wounded, on the tender.    The fate of the  remainder of  the  Durbans and  Dublins  and lieutenant Churchill is unknown."  Estcourt, November 16.���-Seven of the  Durbans have just come in, making 23  still missing. Only 15 of the Dublins  have, returned. The naval 7-pounder  which was in front of the truck had fired  three'shots when it was shattered by the  Boer artillery. The armored engine has  many bullet marks and its dome cover is  smashed, as also its au tomatic exhaust  pipe and 2.5-ton screw jack. The tender  is also pitted with bullet marks. It is  rumored that lieutenant Churchill is a  prisoner.  Estcourt, ��� Natal, November, 15.���At  six o'clock this morning the red cross1  train returned and reported, that on  meeting the Boer patrol", was hailed and  asked ~'"7liat= was wanted. They re*p!ied  that they had come with the train to relieve the wounded. The Boers asked to  have the request made in writing, and  Dr. Bristow complied. After waiting for  two hours another Boer came and informed Dr. Bristow that, as general Jon-  bert was far away, no answer to their  request could be furnished until tomorrow morning. The Boers said that if Dr.  Bristow would, then return with a white  flag he could count upon a reply from  general Joubert. Dr. Bristow inquired if  there were many wounded. The Boei  replied that he had heard there were  about seven, but he declined to give any  information about Churchill.  Durban, November 1(3.���-The Natal  Mercury, describing tho engagement,  says: "The enemy apparently opened  fire with a Maxim and two iiiuo-potind-  ers, getting the range accurately. The  fire���was���so -severe���that��� the_telograph  wires and "poles were destroyed. Their  guns were on a kopje covered with brushwood, and the sharpshooters weie hidden  behind boulders. The Dublins and volunteers, fighting an unequal battle, drove  the enemy back, before the fierceness of  the rille and big gun fire became too  much for the brave; little party, which  was weakened at the outset by the overturning of the trucks, hurting several  Lieutenant Churchill's bravery and coolness was magnificent. Encouraged by  him, all worked like heroes in clearing  the line to enable tlie engine to pass."  CUSTOMS MINISTER PATERSON  Interviewed by Business Men,  Hon William Paterson, minster of customs, was waited upon yesterday in the  parlors of the Hume hotel by a representative delegation of the board of trade,  when Nelson's request that proper public  buildings be erected, and that living salaries be paid to officials employed was  presented. Among those present were  J. Roderick Robertson, W. A. Galliher,  mayor Neelands, T. G. Proctor, Dr. Forin,  alderman Fletcher, H. J. Evans, Dr.  Arthur, R. S. Kinghorn, J. A. Gibson,  George Johnstone, J. J. Campbell, James  Bannerman, John A. Turner, G. L. Lennox,  A. R. Sherwood and R. II. Hedley.  Mr. Galliher held the brief for the delegation. With respect to the public  buildings he said that it was important  from a business point of view that the  present vote should be made available  for the purchase of a site. At present  values the site, would take the greater  part of the vote; and as a further; vote  ���would be required to be made it 'would,  facilitate matters by purchasing  the 'site. The city solicitor also  put in a plea for the customs and inland revenue officials iu the city. He  said that they were overworked and underpaid, and then proceeded to explain  the difficulty which would confront a  man.who attempted to live in British Columbia upon an Ontario salary. -  Hon. Mr. Paterson replied briefly. With  respect to the vote for the public buildings, he said that his impression was that  the vote passed by the house was not re- '  garded as a final one. It should probably be taken merely as an evidence that  the government intended to erect suitable  buildings in Nelson. As to the amount  which would be expended upon the same,  he could only'. say that the government  geuer.illy aimed at having a building'in  keeping with its surroundings. It was'  not the policy of the government to erect  buildings which were inferior to the other  buildings of a city, and this should be  sufficient assurance that a suitable building "would be put up.  With respect to the oflicials of the government resident in Nelson, the .minister  said he was pleased to hear the testimony  of the merchants of the city as  to their    *  courtesy and efficiency.    The collector of <-  customs, ho could -jay, was known to the  department at Ottawa, and was  an  official in whom the department liad  every  confidence,   and   he supposed   that the  other officials associated with him in the  service were likewise efficient and  courteous.    He had no doubt but that their  salaries appeared small.    There was one  great difli_Jilty in  this matter,'however,'  which could not be  overlooked.    It was  his   experience   that there  was  a  very  laudable desire on the part of the people  of  the 'Dominion  to  serve her majesty  and  at  prices  which  one would hardly  think commensurate with the service.   In  ollice, however, these   people  had every  facility for knowing just what everyone  else got.     If there was an advance made  to one man they naturally thought that  they were entitled to a similar advance.    *  When this difficulty was multiplied by a  ���  hundred to cover as  many  officials,  the  difficulty'which faced the department in  making advances  could  be  appreciated.  However, since his visit to the west he  had been convinced that a man could nob  live here on the wirae salary as he could  elsewhere, and he would   not  forget it,  but just what ho would be able to accomplish he could not say.  ���As to the question"of"extra_help"i���if "if"  w.i*- needed it would be  supplied   to  the  department.     Since he had been in office  he could say that the  estimates  for  the  service   iu   British  Columbia  had   been  greatly increased,    lie liad   not   been in  ollice very long, however,  and  he could  well remember that while on the opposite  side of the hon->e he had  urged   his  predecessors in office to the practice of that  inc*-.* unable virtue, economy.    This being  **o he had to safeguard his own action, as  he was liable at any time to be icqnested  to give his prc.->euk view upon  the practice of the same virtue.  Mr,  Marpole is Clearly in Error.  Si'fpei inteivdeht Mai pole of the Canadian Pacific Hailuay Company is decidedly in error when lie say.*-* that the proposition for making Nelson a division  point and the one setting apart land for a  iecrcation gtoutid were coupled togethex.  When the recreation ground was -**et  ap.'Ut.no proposition, either directly or  indirectly, had ever been made regarding a division point at Nelson, for  the very good reason that the people of  Xcl-on were not iu a position to make  any such proposition as Mr. Marpole says  was made. The town was not incorpor-  poiutcd at the time. The coupling of  the two propositions was clearly an afterthought of the railway officials, when  they found th.it the recreation ground,  had become of more than nominal value,  nnd no one knows this better than Mr.  Marpole.    Right for Once.  Alderman   Hillyer  is  \oiy  much concerned for fear the Municipal Clauses Act  may be changed so as to allow a majority  of  voters  to dispose of  the real estate  assets of a municipality.   The alderman  is right.    Majorities are continually making   irreparable    blunders��� in    electing  1 aldermen. THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON-, B. C, FPJDAY, NOVEMBER, IT,  1399.

Galliher to send in his resignation  as city solicitor, for yesterday's proceedings .clearly go to show that his vieAVS  and opinions are not in accord with  those of his employers.  but if they did he would say that he regarded the matter of the disposition of  the recreation grounds as a matter altogether distinct from the question of the  establishing of a divisional point at Nelson by the company. He looked upon the  matters as deserving treatment as separate transactions. In any event it was  open to the members of the council to determine whether by the ..exchange pro-,  posed they were getting 'the equivalent  for such rights as the city might have at  present to the recreation ground. With  regard to the restriction which the company proposed with respect to the grant  of forty acres, making the grant solely  for recreation purposes, the city solicitor  said that were he a member of the council  he would oppose it. Tlie decision in the  matter, however, was not to be arrived at  by himself but by the members of the  council. There were, however, several  reasons why there should be no strings to  the grant ofthe forty acres. As time advanced it might be the wish of the city  to make some exchange of the land in  question and secure other laud for recreation purposes nearer to the city, but  if the present string was attached to the  grant it would be impossible for the city  to cany it out. He thought tliat such  was the view which the council should  take of it and it appeared to him so reasonable that he did not think the representatives of the raihvay company would  object to make the necessary amendment.  It was suggested that tlie railway company was virtually making the city a gift  of the forty acres. If this was, so it  would look better if the gift had no string  to it.

The story of how two raihvay officials  swallowed the city council of Nelson is  graphically told in the following report  of the proceedings of the special meeting  of the city council held yesterday forenoon. The only-*ma*_' who stood out for  the interests of tlie. city was.tlie city so-  licitor, \V\ A. Galliher, but us lie did not  liave a A'ote wlien ib came to ratifying the  jptilroad company's one-sided agreement,  Proceedings of the Meeting.  The members of the city council met  the officials of the Canadian Pacific railway yesterday morning tind ratified an  agreement Avhereby the city is to forego  all claims upon the present recreation  groundsj in return for which the officials  of the rail way company promised to make  Nelson 'a divisional, point on ., the company's system when it suits their purpose,  and maintain it as such for such period  as they please.  The railway company was represented  by George McL. Brown, executive agent,  ft. Marpole, superintendent, II. E.  Beasley, divisional superintendent, and  TV. A. Macdonald. solicitor. The company's proposal covered three sheets of  typewritten paper, whieh -represented  wliat the raihvay company was willing to  take after an informal talk with the members of the council and the city solieitor.  It was turned over to city solicitor W. A.  Galliher to read and explain its provisions. In the memorandum the railway  company figured as the party of the second.part and the city as the party of the  first part.  The first two sections dealt witli the  deal  on the rcerefi tion  ground,  and the  company's proposal to transfer to the city  a 40-aere tract of land in the Columbia <&  ICootenay reserve in exchange for whatever hold  the city might have upon tlio  present recreation grounds on Hall street.  Tiie clauses were as follows:  ��� ���The said���party-of���tho -second���part-  agrees ,to lease to tlie said party of the  first part, for recreation grounds only, lots  13 to  2'i inclusive in block CO, lots 1 to  12 inclusive  in  block (SS, in  the City of  Nelson, according to the official  map or  plan of the said city, being a jjortion  of  subdivision  of Job 05,  group  1, District  of West   Kootenay, for  a period of five  years, the party ofthe first part to pay  all taxes for paid period and such lease to  be for a nominal rental of one dollar per  year and to contain the usual covenants."  "The party of the second pari further  agrees to execute and deliver to tho said  party  of tho  first part a deed  free and  clear of nil encumbrances, of forty acres  of land  iii  the Columbia and  Kootenay  reserve,  in one bloek, adjoining the City  of Nelson, being lot #0*1,, Group 1, Kootenay  District, to  be used  for recreation  purposes only, such forty acres to be defined  and selected by _ the. party of  the  first part."  With respect to tlie lease term of five  vein's upon the recreation ground.*"-, mayor  Neelands said ho understood that Mr.  Marpole wtis willing to extend the lease  period to seven years and the superintendent in reply gave a qualified assent.  There was a lull in the discussion after  this but the matter was brought to a  head by the city solicitor asking : "Do i  understand that the members of the  council agree to treat with this property  in the way suggested?"  Alderman Hillyer was the only member  who responded. He said that lie was in  favor of such action.  The city aolicitor then; explained that  in assenting to the provisions of the first  clause the city would abandon any right  it might have.at present to the present*  recreation grounds.

CURRENT RATE OP INTEREST PAID  (Continued From .Second I'aire)  the argument could be advanced that in  tlie exchange proposed, witli the five or  seven yeai1 lease thrown in, tlie city was  getting an equivalent for the land wliich  it surrendered. The only way in which  the matter could be considered was yas a  settlement in connection with the establishment of the divisional point in Nel-  sou. He thought that it was undesirable  thatthe city! should be"-asked to release  the railway company from all claim ,to  the laud. It might have the effect of defeating the bylaw which it was necessary  to submit to the ratepayers. He thought  that at least the city should have the  light to purchase the ten lots in question  from the raihvay company at the end of  five years at a valuation of $5000. The  other lots embraced in the present recreation grounds were really a gift to the  city at present froni the provincial goveriiiuent. He also agreed with the city  solicitor that'the deed of the forty acres  to the city should be absolute with no  string attached.  W. A, Macdonald raised the question  whether the corporation could hold land  outside the city limits except for park  purposes.  Alderman Fletcher observed that the  city had no title or right to the present  recreation grounds except possibly a  moral right, lie asked alderman' Reer  what he meant by referring to the purchase of ten of, the lots from the raihvay  company.  Aldehnan Beer in reply asked if it was  the intention of the raihvay company*, to  repudiate the first agreement by which,  in return for the unsold portions of certain lots in the Cottonwood flat, the railway company turned over to the government for the city one-half of the present  recreation grounds. Kor this half of the  ground the raihvay company was to receive compensation from the government;  the other half of the recreation grounds  wae in the nature of a gift to the city.  With respect to Mr. Macdouald'- query,  whether the city coulcLhold land outside  tlie city for other than park purposes,  the city solicitor replied that the grant of  the land to the city by the raihvay company was not made any more secure by  reason of the string which the company  proposed to attach to it.  Mr. Macdonald suggested that if the  grant was conditional bhe council would  not be importuned to sell the land wheu  it became valuable.  Alderman Beer thought sixty por cent  of the people of Nelson could be depended upon to know what they wanted,  and if three-fifths of the people thought  that any-Iaud shonkl-be sold-they shotild-  have the power to sell it.  Alderman Hillyer was not satisfied  with this. He favored the 40-acre grant  with a string to it, because the legislature might change the municipal act so  that fifty per cent of the people might  have power to sell the land. Iu this he  saw some danger.  Alderman Beer then pressed his proposition that the city should have the  right, at the end of five years, to purchase the present lots in the recreation  ground owned by the company for $5000.  Superintendent Marpole said that he  would not consent to tliis at all. lie added that if the council insisted upon securing the present recreation grounds  the company was prepared to go ahead  and carry out the agreement, but in this  event the matter of making Nelson a  divisional point would be dropped at  present.  Mr. Brown cautioned the members of  the council. He said it should be borne  in mind that the company was not asking*  for any bonus from tlie city for the establishment of the divisional point, nor  was Nelson the only point at which  a divisional point could be established.  City solicitor Galliher suggested that  the railway company separate the two  questions, that is the settlement of the  recreation ground matter and the establishment of the 'divisional point.  Mr. Brown in reply said that the company was prepared to settle the recreation ground matter and leave out the  question of the divisional point.  The city solicitor asked whether the  railway company would be willing, in the  event of the city securing for the railway  company the unsold portions of blocks 88  and 89* to give the city the present  ^t-eereation ground for recreation purposes  iuid. leave the 40-acr�� tract out alto-  ieiv.p''"'.������'������!:-" ���.;. ... ..'.-!*������-:.,:,' !.. y-.���  Is qow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit pn Skaguay, U. S., Atlin,,.B. C, and  Dawson City, Yu^oq District.  the cases of  reason for re-  way  of  per-  The reply to this was that the company  would then have to come back with a  new proposition, with respect to the establishment of a divisional point, which  would greatly delay matters.  The council decided to pass the first  two sections and take up that dealing  with the company's agreement to make  Nelson a divisional point. It was rend  as follows:  "The party of the second part agrees to  establish the City of Nelson as a divisional  point on tlieir line of raihvay as soon as  the bylaw hereafter referred to has received the sanction of the ratepayers and  been finally piissed. And the party of  the second part agrees to construct such  roundhouses, workshops, stations, sidings,  and other works or buildings as are necessary, usual, and incidental to a divisional point on their line of railway."  The railway men were asked when, in  the event of the bylaw being approved,  they would make Nelson a divisional  point, and in reply superintendent Mar-.  pole stated that Nelson was now what  might be called a sub-divisional point. It  could not be made a divisional point in  the full sense of the term until the Crow-'_  Nest branch was completed from Kootenay Landing to Nelson. The company,  however, required additional facilities at  Nelson at once, and would proceed with  the same pis soon as the bylaw was  passed.  Alderman Beer asked if the company  would be willing to state that there  should not be another divisional point on  the company's line within a certain distance of Nelson.  Superintendent Marpole replied that the  company could not undertake any such  agreement. The company had asked nothing from the city. The closing of the  streets was a part of the agreement for  the exchange of the recreation ground  lots.  The city solicitor said he had never  'heard of any such agreement. If the  matter of the divisional point was sepa-  raled from the recreation ground matter,  he would not counsel the city to entertain the company's proposition with re-  pect to the recreation ground.  Alderman Fletcher put in another  word for the railway company. lie said  that the lots in question would be of no  use to the railway company at all unless  the streets were closed.  Mr. Brown added that in any event the  city could only secure the recreation  ground for recreation purposes only.  The city solicitor's reply to this was  that if the agreement between the government, the raihvay company and the  city was carried out, the city was to receive an absolute crown grant to the land.  Alderman Fletcher questioned this, but  in reply the city solicitor said it was only  fair to assume that the finance minister  knew the meaniug of the English language, aud in his communication he had  stated that a crown gvaut would issue to  the city.  Alderman Fletcher secured one concession from the raihvay company. It was  to the effect tlntt iu the event of the present-deal going through the railway "company would forego any right which it  might have with respect to the park reserve should the city ask for a deed of  the same. This was agreed to by superintendent Marpole.  City solicitor Galliher suggested an  amendment to the division point clause  binding the company to maintain a  divisional point at Nelson for a period of  ten years.  Superintendent Marpole said that if  the company once built its divisional  point at Xelson it would be nonsense to  insert such a clause. In any event, he  Avas opposed to it.  The city solicitor cited  Kamloops and Donald as a  quiring something in the  manency.  Alderman Beer agreed that the amendment proposed was a good one. There  should be permanency for at least ten  years.  Mr. Macdonald's reply was that the  city was not giving the company anything and it should not be bound down.  Alderman Beer replied that he would  sooner take up the question of a bonus  and make the divisional point permanent.  The city solieitor added that in the  event of the company's removal of the  divisional point in a few years it would  have a very bad effect on outside capital.  AlderiuMi Beer supplemented this by  saying that the council could not ignore  Bobsonj which was but a few miles away.  Capital would have mueh more confidence  if there were some permanency guaranteed,  especially as Kobsou had been spoken of  so freely as a divisional point in the  company's system.  Mr. Brown said he was satisfied that  the management would not agree to the  provision to maintain the divisional point  at Nelson. The company was willing to  come in and spend -a lot of money*, and as  the company never threw away a dollar  this should be a sufficient guarantee. If  the company spent money on buildings it  is hot likely that it would, move away.  Mr. Macdonald asked the city solicitor  what penalty could be enforced in the  event of the company failing to maintain  the'divisiq-aal point at Nelson.   .  The city solicitor replied that the city  could look out for that. The raihvay  company had stated that it was getting  nothing from the city, when as a matter  of 'fact it was virtually getting sufficient ground for yard purposes  through grants of land and the closing of  public streets. The circumstance that  the city was not giving a bonus of $25,000  should not exclude the city from the  right to secure permance for such con*,  cessions as it was giving.  Mayor Neelands added that there was  a difference of $12,000 between the value  of the land wliich the city was transferring to the raihvay company and that  whjch the city was receiving in return.  The city .solicitor suggested that if no  penalty could be imposed no objection  could be raised to the amendment requiring the -company to maintain its  divisional point at Nelson for ten years.  Mi\ Brown intimated that if the company came into conflict with the city  over this point the matter would end  there for the present.  The city solicitor evidently realized at  this stage, that he was not receiving the  support of the members of the council in  his fight for the city's interests and remarked thathe was probably saying too  much: He accordingly subsided, and the  rest of the agreement went through with  virtually no debate. The remainder of  the agreement was as follows :  "In. consideration of the premises and  of the said party of the second part  granting said lease and conveying said  forty acres of land as hereinbefore mentioned, the party of the first part agrees  to close up and convey to the party of  the second part and their successors and  assigns by a good and sufficient deed in  fee simple the following portions of  streets and alleys within the limits of the  City of Nelson, namely, Vernon street from  a line drawn from the northeast corner  of block 38, diagonally across Vernon  street easterly to the southwest corner of  the Columbia & Kootenay right-of-way  of their line of railway to the terminus  of Vernon street fit the westerly end of  block 96, in said city: Baker street from  its westerly intersection with Railway  street to its intersection with Vernon  street;-Victoria street from its westerly  intersection with Railway street to its intersection with VernonstreetjSloeaustreet  from its southerly intersection with Victoria to its uotherly intersection with  Vernon street, and also the lane or alley  extending, from Railway street through  blocks 90 and 89 to Vernon street, all  being according to the map or plan of  subdivision of lot 95, Group 1, Kootenay District."

Mr. Paulson of Nelson was here the  other day looking out for a site for a sawmill.  Two carloads of machinery for the new  .stamp mill of the Yellowstone arrived  yesterday, and teams are busy getting it  forward to the mine.���  ���   Mr. Ryan, a Spokane mining man, was  here today looking up the property of J.  SlmltK, with a view of taking a bond for  a good big figure. * Mr.Shultz is also closing a deal for the Noble Five group, adjoining the Yellowstone, with Mr. Caldwell of Ka&Io.

'  BY MAIL ANDTELECRAPH  To a deputation of liquor sellers, who  protested against the number of shebeens  and other places of ill-repute in Montreal  where liquor is illegally sold, premier  Marchand stated that the Quebec government would not be checked by any influence in its endeavors to rid Montreal  of all places of immoral character.  Ex-Hon. G. E. Foster addressed a huge  meeting of North Siihcoe electors on the  politicol questions of the day from the  opposition standpoint, at Barrie, Ontario,  last night.  A. Prevost, aged 100 years, arrived at  Montreal yesterday from Ste. Anne de  Bellevue to spend the remainder of his  days in the Grey nunnery. Prevost was  formerly employed by the Hudson's Bay  Company. He remembers distinctly the  American invasion of 1812 aud the battle  of AVaterloo.  A move is on foot among the mill owners and lumber dealers to establish a  uniform standard of grades in lumber, in  the near future, with the view to put all  dealers on an equal footing.  The coroner's jury, in the case of the  James shootiug affray at Kingston,  Ontario, have returned a verdict of  "justifiable homicide." The . magistrate  and police authorities have in consequence  released Fralick, wlio fired the fatal shot.  The necessary- articles have been signed  between Joe Goddard of Australia and  Jack'"MaeCormiek of Philadelphia to meet  under the auspices of the Crescent  Athletic Club on Saturday, November  2.5th. The match is considered the biggest  thing of the kind ever made in Canada.  Miss Susan Dodge, since 1875 mathematical teacher in the Montreal high  school, and since 1890 first assistant in  charge of the high school for girls, is  dead from the result of an attack of  scarlet fever. She had been ailing for  many months.  Inconsistent Alderman Fletcher.  Alderman Fletcher is opposed to the  city's getting tho Hall street recreation  ground on any terms, and he does not  want the city to get a deed in fee simple  for the 40-acre tract of worthless hind on  the outskirts of the C. P. R. _-mile block  that he blanketed Nelson with in the  early days, but he does favor the idea  that the city should get a crown grant  for the land embraced iu the park on the  bluff back of " the hospital. *��� Alderman  Fletcher is never consistent.
