 1  i  THE CITY COUUCIL ARRANGING  For Borrowing More Money.  At the meeting of the city council last  evening the bylaw  ratifying the agreement between the  City  of Nelson  aud  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  with respect .to  tho  recreation  grounds  and   the establishment  of Nelson   as  a  divisional point in tho company's railway  system,   received   its   first   and   second  reading.     The   bylaws  authorizing  the  issue of $8000 worth of 41   per eent debentures for waterworks and $7000 worth  of debentures for electric light construction were also advanced to the committee  stage.    There avus  no  opposition   manifested to tho Canadian   Pacific  bylaw or  tlie   Avaterworks  debenture  bylaw,  but  when  the  lirst  reading  of  the  electric  light debenture bylaAV Avas moved, aldei-  man    Hillyer   asked   to   have  liis  Arote  recorded in the negative.    In doing so he  expressed tlie opinion that he  Avould  be  in favoi of a bylaw authorizing the issue  of    a  larger .sum   upon   electric    light  account, but he did not consider the sum  specified as sufficient.    lie also expressed  the opinion that  the  debentures  should  be issued bearing four per cent instead of  ���il per cent.    In  this,  however,  he  AA'as  not supported by the other members of  the council and the matter Avas allowed  to drop.  In connection Avith tlie agreement to be  .signed  by  the  city   and  the   Canadian  Pacific Raihvay Company, the  city solicitor   stated   that   the   agreement   was  ready to be signed, but that, as drawn by  th*** railway company's solicitor, the term  of the recreation ground lease Avas set out  as for five years, instead of seven, as was  agreed upon.    There Avas another matter  AA'hich he thought should be called to the  attention  of the  council, and that Avas  the indefinite answer Avhich had been received  froni' the provincial  gOA'erument  Avith respect to the  transfer  of lots betAveen the government, the city  and the  railway company.    The agreement might  be signed, but it should not be  until     something    more  received       from        the  He       suggested       that  clerk      Avrite'     to      the  and set out_ the  terms  upon  Avhich the  city proposed to  make  the exchange of  lots  Avith  the  raihvay   company.     The  government  had  merely stated  that it  Avas prepared to carry out the  original  agreement.     The agreement   had  since  .been  varied  by  the  council and it AA'as  necessary to secure  the consent  of the  '  government, to tlie change   which had  been made.    The council  decided  to accept the suggestion  and  the  city  clerk  .Was instructed "to Avrite  to  tlie  government setting out the  terms of the pro-  - posed transfer.  The* next matter of importance dealt  Avith by the council was a mild protest  from the Nelson Coke and Gas Company  against being submitted to the competition of tlio West Kootenay Power&Light  Company in the furnishing of such poAver  as might be required in the city. The  communication * set out that the  company jwould be prepared in a  feAv  weeks   to   furnish    all   the   power  TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 21,  189I>.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $_.  delivered  definite    Avas  government.  the       city  government  furnish all the  required in the city. The company's  held Avas already restricted, in that it  eon Id only hope to supply gas for heat  and power purposes, and the company  therefore expected, in vicav of the fact  that it Avould be a heavy taxpayer to the  city, that the council would do all iu its  power to protect it from tho competition  of outside companies.  Mayor Neelands explained that the  committee appointed to look into the  _ma tterfro��__the_f u rnishing_of power liad  not yet" met and its report could not  come in until a subsequent meeting of  the council.  Alderman Beer explained that he would  be obliged to leave the city again today,  and as the matter assigned to the committee "was an important one he suggested that some other member be appointed in his stead upon the committee.  Alderman Kirkpatrick Avas accordingly  appointed to servo on the committee.  Alderman Hillyer said that the gas  company had probably been overlooked.  It was a local company, however, and tie-  served consideration. It was not his  intention, however, to bring in the Wost  ICootenay Power & Light Company if the  council-could find any satisfactory .vay  out of the question. There was, however, some power Avhich probably the gas  company could not furnish.  At the" suggestion of the mayor, the  matter went over till the next meeting.  Tenders Avere opened for the making of  Avater connections, the city to do the digging and back-filling and supply materials. The Vancouver Hardware Company's tender Avas $3 for each connection,  and that of Strachan Brothers fifty cents.  The loAvest tender Avas accepted.  The finance committee recommended  the payment of accounts amounting to  $6419.38.  Charles Etter's claim for damages  through damage to his road by the construction of the water main from Cotton-  Avood creek AA'as referred to the mayor  with poAver to settle up to the amount of  $50.  The city engineer reported that the  materials for the proposed addition to  the Fire hall would cost $200. Alderman  Hillyer and McKillop expressed themselves as in favor of the expenditure, but  alderman Beer was opposed to it..on the.  ground that the money would be wasted'  in the eA'ent of  the city building a  ne.v  city hall inside of six months.  Alderman Hillyer in reply to this said  that there was no liklihood of the city  building a new city hall for two or three  years, and when such was decided upon  the hall would probably be built on some  other site than that occupied by the fire  hall. The committee decided to make  the expenditure.  In the matter of the Traves boulevard  on Cedar and Vernon streets, the city  engineer reported that as Cedar street  would require to be graded it Avould not  be avcII to .encourage boulevarding at  present. The boulevard may go up on  Vernon street.  Tlie council decided to lay a 12-foot  sidewalk in front of Thomas Madden's  block on Ward street, and Avhen a plan  is submitted shoAving the area requested  on Ward street, a bylaw AviII be framed  and submitted to the ratepayers along  AA'ith the other bylaws. A special meeting of the council will be held today to  introduce such a bylaAV.  The council decided to extend the pres-  -ent sidewalk on Victoria  street to Tho-  burn  Allan's  residence,  aud  to request  the public Avorks committee to make passable the alleyway in block 27.  The request of E. Kilby for a crossing  to his premises on Vernon street Avas referred to the public Avorks committee,  and the same disposition Avas made of  George W. Hall's request for the opening  of a road on Gore street Avest of Kootenay street.  It AA'as decided to lay a six-foot side-  AA'alk on Silica street from Josephine  street to St. Saviour's church and make  other repairs to sideAvalks on the same  street, as Avell as extend the electric light  system from the corner of Silica and  Ilendryx to the corner of Silica and  Cedar.  Another request from the smelter band  for a grant from the council Avas filed.  Tlie salary of the caretaker of the  cemetery was increased from $25 to $35  per month.  The mayor Avas instructed to have a  shelter built for the Aveigh-master at the  city scales.  A sideAvalk Avas also ordered to be built  on Ward street between Mill and Latimer  streets.  THE LATEST FBOM SOUTH AFRICA  A Kettle Biver Boom Bursts.  Grand Forks, NoA-enibor 19.���[Delayed  in transmission.]���At six o'clock this  evening a boom across the north fork of  the Kettle river about tAvo miles above  the city, containing about one million  aud a quarter to one million and a half of  saAV logs, the property of the Granby  Smelter Company, gave Avay. A swirling  mass of grinding timbers swept doAVn  the stream, swollen by recent rains to  spring high water mark, carrying destruction in its path. Half a mile below  the stai'ting point, the river, at the site of  the smelter dam, already half finislied, is  compressed into a canyon scarcely eighty  feet across, Avhose walls rise vertically for  hundreds of feet. Through this tortuous  channel the logs, piled twenty feet high,  came Avith a deafening crash, tearing out  portions of the false Avork and coffer  dams, after having sAvept away a temporary bridge a quarter of a mile above.  Gathering momentum iu its downward  descent the huge pile carried away  another-temporary bridge -opposite-the  smelter site as though it had been made  of pasteboard. In the meantime  the news had been telephoned to  the city, and soon a large crowd  gathered on the banks opposite the Yale  hotel. Within a few minutes the logs  .struck the city bridge at the foot of  Bridge street, and piled ten feet high.  The bridge remains intact and thousands  of logs are still floating down the river.  Huge bonfires lighted up the strange  spectacle. The boom consisted of three  cables and one chain. Jay 1'. Graves estimates the loss at $<!000. The construction of the smelter dam Avill be delayed a  month.   The Value to be Settled, by Arbitration.  Victoria, November 20.���Tho Dominion government and the Esquimalt &  Nanaimo Railway Company of this city  haA'e decided to leave to a board of arbitration the settlement of the value of  the lands occupied by the company in  the Songhees Indian reservation. Prank  G. Richards has been chosen as arbitrator  by the government and George Riley by  the company. These gentlemen have decided upon county judge Harrison as  umpire, and the board will commence  AArork on Monday next, the 27th instant.  Davis, Marshall & McNeill of Vancouver  are legal representatives for the government, and Bod well <fc Duff of Victoria  will act for the railway company.  It was a Slugging Match.  Al Weinig of Buffalo and Jim Fitzpat-  rick of Olean fought tAventy-five rounds  to a draAV before the Olympic Club at  Buffalo la-st niglit. The Olean man  weighed fully 200 pounds, Avhile Weinig  tipped the beam at 159. Slugging predominated throughout the contest, both  men being badly cut up.  Berlin, November 21.���The Cologne  Gazette publishes the folloAving dispatch  from Cape Toavu : "Everything is prepared for a general rising of the natives  throughout Cape Colony. They are  ready at any moment to make common  cause with the Boers."  LADYSMini, NoA'ember If'.���[by ruuner  to Estcourt].���All Avell here, Avith nothing important to report. We are amply  supplied Avith ammunition and confident  of our ability to hold out. Information  from, outside is very scarce, but it is be-  lieA'ed here that the Boers ooav investing  the toAvn are only a small force. The  heavy Aveather continues and the rain is  hampering the Boer operations severely.  Pietermaritzijurg, November 20.���A  party of British hectographers, cut  off ' by the Boers outside Estcourt, contrived to escape to Noav Hanover, on ��� the Gray ToAvn line, arrived  here today. They report that 6000 Boers,  driven by starvation, are foraging toward Gray Toavii. No alarm is felt, but  but it may require a division of the relief column to annihilate them.  William Attends a Family Dinner.  Windsor, November 20.���In the course  of the afternoon emperor William of  Germany Avent for a stroll in Windsor  park, inspected the Queen's prize cattle,  and visited the armory. ��� There AA'as a  family dinner party this evening in the  castle. Tomorrow an elaborate banquet  Avill be given in St. George's hall.  London,' November 20.���The Daily  Standard in its War Diary .says this  morning: "Hitherto avo havo hesitated  to speak of the quality of the tinned  .meats supplied to our troops, much of  AA'hich has had to be thrown overboard,  but Ave have made inquiries not likely to  be influenced by mere rumor, and Ave  suppose the suspicions that some of the  meat supplied to the government for use  on British transports Avas meat Avhich  had beeu rejected by the United States  during the hostilities in Cuba, Avhich is  picturesquely knoAvn as "embalmed beef"  and restaraped with the mark of the  current year. Whatever blunder there  has been made must be laid not at the  door of the Avar office, but at the door of  Xhe admiralty, which has undertaken to  feed the troops. Not a single complaint  regarding the quality of the stores has  come to*hand."  Filipinos Active Near Manila.  Manila, November 20.���There has been  a revival of insurgent activity south of  Manila, particularly in CaA'ite province.  At Imus yesterday the Filipinos fired a  siuoothbpre cannon, but this was soon  silenced by the American artillery. In  the course of the morning major Cowles,  Avith a battalion of the Fourth infantry  and two guns, scattered the enemy from  the districts around Imus and in direction  of Peres das Marinas. The Americans  could not pursue the retreating insurgents because their ammunition ran out.  LADYSMITH FULL OF WOUNDED  And Captured Boers.  Estcourt, Natal, November 20.���4:4 5  p.m.���Major Bethune's patrols have located the enemy on the northwest, but  ten miles off. The Boers Avould not be  draAvn. Fighting is reported at the Mooi  river.*" The Boers are doing more footing  than fighting, and all their parties south  of Ladysmith are foraging on the farms.  Advices from Ladysmith tell of brilliant  British A'ictories, with a comparatively  slight loss on our side and heavy slaughter of the enemy. Ladysmith is full bf  wounded and captured Boers. It is reported that in the fighting on November  9 th the enemy lost 800 killed and 500  captured. The Boers are trying to influence and conciliate the Natal  Kaffirs.  London, November 20.���The Standard  publishes the following from Ladysmith,  dated Sunday, November 19th: "The  ariTval of the relief column at Estcourt  has completely modified the plans of the  enemy, and general Joubert has removed  to the south,'in an effort to prevent the  junction of the British forces."  A Pretoria dispatch announces the  arrival there among the British prisoners  of major Haldane, lieutenant Brockie and  lieutenant Hallway. It also declares that  the British on Sunday made tAvo unsuccessful attempts to oust the llustenburg  commando fiom a position near Mafeking,  and that severe lighting took place.  From Delagoa Bay come reports of the  nrrivaI_of many_ German_officers and  artillerymen, who have volunteered to  serve .villi the Transvaal farces.  Should be Given British Justice.  There Avas trouble in Ymir last week,  and if the reports that have sifted  through to Nelson are true, constable  Forrester and justice-of-the-peace Ross of  that town should be called to account.  Two employees of the Yinir mine came  to the toAvn and got drunk, and during  their spree openly flourished loaded revolvers, declaring that they could do as  they pleased, as the company had $3000  set apart to defend its employees when  they got into trouble at Ymir. Drunken  men nourishing deadly Avcapons, even if  the men are employees of a mining company, should be given a taste of that JaAV,  so.commonly knoAvn as "British justice."  Rugby Football Should be Prohibited.  .St Louis, November 20.���After spending several days iiiA-estigating the death  of John Allen, right tackle of the football team of the Christian Brothers College, avIio Avas injured on NoA'ember 11th  in a game with the St. Louis University  eleven, the coroner's jury today returned  the following verdict: "We, the jury,  find that the game was played strictly  according to Rugby rules, but Ave believe  the game is dangerous and should be  prohibited.    Verdict,  accidental  death."  Charles Henry Dricke of this city has  just returned from Cape Nome. He has  been in the north for five years. Conse-  quently he took his Avife with him, and  they claim the honor of having the first  Avhite child born on Ameiican .soil in  Alaska. He is not satisfied Avith the ad  ministration of affairs at Cape Nome,  and he talks very plainly about, the  matter. He says there is plenty of gold  in tlie country.       ** ..-������.'���  THE SWEARINCJNJF SPECIALS  And the Working of Mines.  Neav Denver, November 20.���No neAV  developments haA'e occurred in relation  , to the hiring of the special constables by  the Silver-Lead Mine Owners' Association, or members of it, beyond the fact  that they are iioav on duty at the Payne  mine. When the C. P. R. train arrived  at the PByne siding, a stop Avas made and  the constables and the two Seattle ,imports got off. They Avere. received by a  delegation from the Sandon Miners'  Union, much to their sui prise. The Avorkmen Avere allowed to proceed up the hill,  as they AA-ere knoAvn. The constables,  being strangers, AA'ere intervieAved and  Avere giA'en the miners' side of the labor  trouble * before their identity Avas  established. Everything passed off in a  quiet manner. At the Payne the four  men are engaged at outside Avork only,  under the protection of the specials, but  no oue goes near them at-all, so they are  having a snap.  It is evident that this calling for specials has been done for the purpose of in-  juiing the union in the eyes of the outside public; and, at the iiime time, Avith  the hope and belief that the minei s  would be so exasperated as to commit  some overt act, and thus be brought under, the'action of the laAV. Certain it is  that there are those in the camp enjoying emoluments and positions from the  croAvn Avho are talking and acting in a  "mannei'far from-being-compatible Avith  the duties expected of them. No government official should Avrnp himself up too  closely in the belief that his position is a  sinecure for life���a hint it Avould be avcII  to take cognizance of.  This action of the nianageis is the last  shot, as victory is iioav more than cA'er  Avith the men. Not a feAv of the managers have received notice from their employers to .start up or quit their jobs, so  a break may be expected shortly. The  union strength is becoming increased  each Aveek. Two ucav unions have been  established in the past ten days, and  the older organizations aro adding  new members at each meeting, nine having been initiated at .Sandon last week,  and seven the .Saturday before. Last  Saturday no less than 500 members avcio  in attendance at the Sandon union, testifying at once to .their strength and interest. Communications are daily being  received from Hewitt Bostock and other  members of the provincial and Dominion  houses, asking information and extending sympathy and advice. As the union  commands the electoral vote ofthe camp,  its members are not Avithout encouragement from the poAvers that be, as tlie  Jiangers-on of the mine-owners and Avard  politicians will find to their sorrow.  The force on the Marion has been increased to ten men, and these will be  kept steadily employed all winter. New  bunk-houses have just been finislied and  fitted up and the camp put in good shape.  A new crosscut tunnel, to tap the ledge,  has beeu started on tlie Merrimac ground,  giving a much greater depth. Tiie ore  shoAving in the upper Avorkings is a  second chute, the first one having beeu  cut through some time since.  George 'AV.Hughes has eight men  Avorking at Paddy's'Peak upon the group  of claims bonded from' Poddy and Bridget  Medio,     lie  has sent  up a  carload  of  supplies for a. inter use.  The Hartney group is looking exceedingly promising just iioav, there being a  magnificent shoAving of ore in the main  drift being run, under the present management. This is on the August Flower  claim, and is considerably lower than  where the ore chute ..'as tapped by the  original owners. The second drift, started recently has reached bedrock through  the Avash, and it is hoped soon to get ore.  Croft ��fc MePherson are packing the supplies to the Hartney, having made two  trips yesterday.  Seven inches of clean ore Avas shoAving  the full height of the tunnel on the Marion yesterday. ( This chute is of gieat  length, being proven now fully 200 feet,  Avith much improvement of late.  The neAV bunk-house on the Bosun is  iioav ready for occupancy, having been  rushed up in a hurry. It Avill accommodate forty men, aud is a most commodious and up-to-date structure. No  better building of the kind is to be found  in the camp, and it reflects credit upon  the company. New workings ha\re lately  beeu commenced on the Bosun ground,  being more in the nature of a test.  Spokane parties have secured an option  on the Oregon City claim, Ten-mile, from  the owners, Messrs. Trumbull, Bos .veil,  Parkinson and Whittier of Kaslo. Tliere  are tAvo \*eins on the property, the smaller  one having had considerpble Avork done  on it, exposing a good ore chute, carrying  fair values in gold, silver and copper. It  is a galena ore, mixed with iron pyrites.  The claim is most advantageously situated, being close doAvii to the valley,  and has a good cabin and trails. The big  A'ein is about ten feet in Avidth, and is  traceable through four claims. Very  little AA'ork has been done on it, but it  gives strong CA'idences of holding a big  ore chute.  The new ore chute opened up on the  Capella group, near toAvn, is proving better daily. Considerable ore has been  taken out from tlie open cut. A tunnel  AA'ill be driA'en in on the vein.  On the Ruby group, close to this place,  the crosscut has been run seA-eral feet  through the ledge, Avhich is turning otit  to 'be more extensive than at _ first  thought. Values in gold and silver have  been obtained all across the lead as far as  gone.   Nelson's Trade and Business Organizations.  The cigar makers of Nelson, who have  heretofore been working under the jurisdiction of the Cigarmaker's Union of  Kamloops, have organized a local union  and applied for a charter. Tlie officers  are: O. AV.'Terry, president; AV. Mc-  Donough. vice-president; W. H. Groger,  financial aud corresponding secretary;  John Hein, recording secretary; Gus  Boelke, treasurer. Nelson has iioav the  following named trades and business  unions: Board of Trade, J. Roderick  Robertson, president: Nelson District  Mine Owners' Association, J. J. Campbell,  secretary-treasurer; Nelson Miners'  Union, Charles AV. McKay, president:  Nel��on Typographical Union, J. AV. Me-  Intyre, president; Nelson Barbers' Union,  Frank Graham, president; Nelson Cigar-  makers' Union, O. T. Terry, president.  It is only reasonable to suppose that all  tl.e<-*e organizations have their uses, or  *chey~AVould~not have-been -formed-rand  if conducted on proper lines will benefit  not only their individual members, but  the town and district.  GENERAL BULLER  IS  KEEPING  Both British and Boers Guessing.  London, November 21.���The AA'ar office  semi-officially reports  that all  neAA's  received from South Africa has been  published Avith the exception of demands for  reneAval of stores, Avar  material and  the  liko.     There   is  an   unconfirmed   runlor  that moie troops have been ordered from  India to the  Cape.   The  plan  of operations on both sides is slowly unfolding itself.    General Joubert is evidently  moving south   to   prevent, if   possible,  the  junction  of   the British relieving  force  with the  forces  at Estcourt and   Ladysmith.    AVhile on the Orange  river  border, the Boers are believed to be concentrated at Donkerpoort to  oppose general  Buller's  advance.    It  is  said  that  (5000  Boers have already laagered at  Donkerpoort.    The British movement seems  to  be a threefold advance : from Durban to  Ladysmith,     from    Orange      river     to  Kimberley,  and  from  East London,  by  AA'ay of   QueenstoAvn,  to   Burghersdorp. ���  General Buller has  wired the  commanding officer at Queenstown announcing the  despatch  of   geueral  Gatacre   AA'ith  the -  lirst battalion of the seventh brigade  to  East London. * This Avas  the place  from -  Avhich   it   Avas  originally   ordered   that  Gatacre's column Avould start.    Thus it is  possible that geueral Buller's  first plans  have suffered less modification than some  have supposed.  General Gatacre AA'ill be able to keep  the Boers, on the Orange border sufficiently occupied to preserve general  Methuen from undue molestation, especially if rumors from vai ions sources are,  well founded, that describe the Free  State burghers as in no Avise enthusiastic  for fighting. It has been reported that  geueral Buller will take up his quarters  at De Aar. This seems doubtful. De  Aar, Avhere a Arast amount of stores has  been concentrated, is the base for general Methuen's advance, and general Buller may haAre been there for a day or  so. It is believed, hoAvever, that he still  has his headquarters at CapetoAvn.  Although Kimberley is supposed to be  the objectiA'e of general Methuen, many  military critics are of the opinion that  this advance Avill not be towards Kimberley, but across the Orange Free State,  in order to secme complete command of  the Orange rivei.  The debarkation of troops at CapetoAvn  is proceeding in the most satisfactory  manner. One thousand eight hundred  and fifty raiLway cars have been collected  for the conveyance of troops nortliAvard,'  and there is talk of suspending tlie suburban traffic so - as to accelerate military  Avork.  p*   , '  The Boys May Have a Bonanza.  George Doyle has secured additional  assays from tin. droppings of the claims  which he and George Williamson have'  located on the headwaters of the main  fork of KetLle river, some thirty wiles  back from Anow lake. Assays made at  outside points ranged in value about $2">0  to the ton. Tlie latesl assays wore made  by A. L, McKillop, and gave returns' of  $117.20 in gold. The ledge from which  the croppings aune appears to be about  two feet Avide, but very little Avork ha*-  as yet been done upon it. Already two  or three offers haA'e been made to Doylo  and AVilliamson for Avorking bonds upon  the claims. Assays from this section are  uniformly high, and the coining spring  will see quite a rush into the district.  The Noble Five Annual Meeting.  At the annual meeting of the Noble  Five Mining Company held at Cody,  Slocan district, last Aveek, it was. voted  that the assets of the company, Avhich is  organized under the hiAvs of AVashington,  be sold to a company that has been organized under the la%vs of British  Columbia. James Dunsmuir of Victoiia  controls both companies.  The  Byion  Slocan Star Annual Meeting.  annual general meeting of the  N. White Company, owner.- of the  Slocan Star mine, in the Slocan, will be  held at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Saturday, December 2nd.  Spreading Out.  The Boers have occupied'.Campbell in  AVest CJriqualnnd. .  - Germany Looking Out For Germans. -  Berlin, November 20.���While the czar  Avas tit Potsdam recently the general lines  of a prospective commercial treaty betAveen Germany and Russia Avere reached.  The Avhole situation, including the  financial crisis in Russia, Avhich is largely  due to the numberless industrial enterprises started under the Russian high  tariff policy being obliged-to curtail their  output, OAving to insufficient coal supply  from the South Russian mines, Avas  thoroughly discussed. When the AVork-i  shops closed for lack of coal prices rose  onormously, and the minister of finance,  M. De Witte therefore arbitrarily fixed  the price of railroad material required by  the state railroad at about 50 per cent  below tlie price demanded. As many of  these enterprises AA'ere started expressly to  supply the ".Siberian railroad, the result  Avas disastrous. Berlin financial circles  regard the crisis as only temporary, and  are inclined to further Russia's financial  aiicriTidustrial expansion, on-the gTbiuid  that they will thus be subscribing to  their own inceie.sts in drawing apart  iitissia and France and in heightening  Russia's, power*, of purchasing German  products.  Will Make the Fight on Three Issues.  CiiK'aco, November 20.���The Democratic national campaign for l.'OU was  practically inaugurated today, when the  members of the national Democratic  executive committee met in secret session  at the Sherman house. Senator Jones of  Arkansas, the chairman, voiced the .sentiment of iill the committeemen present  when he said that silver, imperialism and  trusts would be the main issues, and that  Bryan, without any doubt, would be tlie  nominee, Senator Jones a. ouid not di>-  (-11*!. the relative importance of the three  future plank*., saying that tliis depended  ������solely upon the section of the country in  a\ Inch tlie matter Avas up  for  discussion.  From Vancouver,  VAxrocvBR, November 20.���The halibut-steamer New England arri\'ed in port  on Sunday from the northern fishing  grounds. She brought 7,1,000 pounds of  fish, Avhich Avere shipped to Boston and  New Vork. The Capilano has been chartered by the fish company and Avill be  engaged all winter in the halibut trade.  This a. ill about double tho capacity of  the company's business. Both boats will  carry their own crews and fishermen.  African War Fund.

It   is  well  known  that  three of the  present aldermen  are ambitious to become mayor; but it is well-  known that none of the three are even in  sympathy with the principle of municipal  ownership of anything  except  the  fire  apparatus and the buildings in which the  city"   officials  transact business.

'  The partnership between tlie iSfeelands  administration-and the owners of* the  nickel-in-the-slot machines yields $2.o0 a  mouth'.revenue to the city. f If the administration would only extend the  partnership to all the "fakes" that gullible people bite at,* the revenue from this  source would at least bo sufficient to pay  for keeping the street crossings clean.  Unless it be the ex-chairman of the  finance-committee, no financier iu Nelson  is of opinion that the City of Nelson  should .pay more than 1 per cent on a  20ryear loan.

"The local Liberals .ire said to be in  search of a newspaper organ,'" was the  remark made by a well-known Tory politician to a Baker street business man,  " but the only paper that is for sale is so  discredited that they are afraid to purchase it." The B. s, b, in. asked : "Who  among, the local Grits is so ambitious as  to be willing .to fool away money on a,  newspaper?" ���������Why," replied the T. p.,  " the alderman from tiie East ward who  headed the poll at tlie last election.   Jle  the door, and was confronted by the biggest man on the .Spokane police force,  who told him to take in his (lower pot or  take a trip to the police station. The  Nelson man said he felt relieved when it  dawned upon him that he was not charged  with violating another law that is in  force in Spokane.  "The gas company is running a bluff on  the city council, in claiming that it has  the exclusive right to sell power in Nelson for 25 years," remarked a political  saloonkeeper last night after he had  heard what had been done at the meeting  of the city council, "and no ono knows it  better than the gas company people."  The Society of Kootenay Pioneers will  give their annual dinner ou December  Mth. Among the papers that.'will be  read will be one by Thomas IMartindale  Ward on "What I Know About Tender-  feet."   It looks as if the music hall by-law i.s  going to be quietly dropped^. Those who  favor a decently conducted music hall  now say that the bylaw as introduced  and put through its several stages by the  city council is not what they want.* The  belief is also growing that Fishy Barnett,  who runs the Holland's Theatre Comique  in Spokane, is rather too prominent in the  deal. It is now said that there is not time  to make the necessary amendments to  the bylaw and there is not sufficient interest in the project to have a separate  vote taken upon it.

CURRENT RATE OK INTEREST PAID  THE   GIRL'S   PIEST  PROBLEM.  "Asa class," said tlie girl who was-putting up the curtains, "I detest room-  mtites. Have you ever known a girl who  was your roommate with whom you did  not have to make a heroic effort to keep  from fussing at the end of the first week?"  "If you talked to them all like that,"  remarked the girl who was the new experiment in roommates, "I suppose you  fussed at the dusk of the first day."  From the wiudow-sill where she was  balanced while the step-ladder stood idly  by, the other girl laughed the nice little  laugh that made you like her.  "1 have been in New York,".she said,  "earning my daily bread and what hansoms I could for four or five years. And  you tire the seventh girl I have tried to  hit it off with"*so as not to'have to take a  hall bed-room. Well, I have seven good  friends out of the seven���but thank  heaven I never tried to go to Europe  with any oue of them, unexperimented  upon."  The girl with the hat with the ties,  whose admiration for professional women  was-"her . sole* characteristic beside her  many rings, sat as visitor looking on in  mute appreciation of the household ar-  rangemen ts in "progress.  "But," she said, "the seven were all  women interested in something, weren't  they? Music or art students, newspaper  women, teachers of language ; think how  much you must have had in common,  talking about yeur art. .Then iii the evening when, tired after a long day������"  "When, tired after a long day." the  curtain girl took up the refrain, "I used  to come home to get tired all over again  ' with a long evening of work, and find the  conch cushions all shaken up and tlie alcohol lamp being filled .and three people  invited" for that evening to share my  roommate's hospitality. Dream of comfort, would th.'Dt be!"  "1 can't afford an alcohol lamp." murmured the new i;oommate, "and I am in  -many ways desirable."  "But all that would only be once in a  while anyway," objected the girl in the  hat.  "You are right," assented the one of  seven experiences. "Other times she  would want a grate fire when I was positively stewing, or she would throw open  the windows and let iu the noise of the  elevated trains till I went to pieces. She  would fail to buy matches when it was  her turn. She would read my paper and  never buy one of her own. She would  never bring home fruit or candy. And  above all, she would let me get well in  the middle of au involved sentence on the  typewriterT"and" then-bT*<��ak "<5TTt~~with":"  'Dear, what would you think a man  meant if he were to say to you, just naturally you know, as if it had just occured  to him'���and so on, ad insauitandum.  All these were different girls, mind you.  But most of them agreed in getting to  the pitcher first, when tlie bathroom  wasn't on our floor, and using up all the  water. Then there was the borrowing���  letter-paper, stamps, hair-pins, hat-pins,  money���oh," said the girl at the curtains,  "you can't tell me anything about roommates."  The new experiment sat down on the  end of the lounge, and voiced her dejection : "Do you think honestly," she wailed, "that X am going to do oue, or all*  these things?" And I was just ready to  ask you for a clean handkerchief.    You  see, my laundry"   "Handkerchiefs ?" said the curtain girl  briskly, "you'll find them in the top  drawer ofthe chiffonier; no,there! Help'  yourself. Haven't you had experience of  that kind, really ?" she asked seriously,  slipping down to the window seat, and  staring out on the street; "don't you  know that what I say is true ? One of  the greatest problems of the self-supporting woman in New York is to find some  congenial girl with whoiii she can go  halves Oil a decently sized room, and not  wish herself in a hail bed-room or a bathroom with the bathtub to sleep iii forty  times the first month."  "Still," said the gill with the hat, "the  town must be full of congenial girls."  "You are congenial, you know," objected the experiment feebly to the curtain  girl; "you yourself have tacitly admitted  it.    Why not some of the rest of us ?"  "The only Way," went on the girl in tlie  window-seat "for a girl with a small income of. $75 or so a month, to live  comfortably in New  York is  to find  some  .r other girl, a\so moderately incomed to  come.

She can pay $12  a week then for board and a room the  size of a palace compared with a $12  room by himself. And the service and  all will be proportionately better. The  problem is to find the girl."  "Well of course," said the experiment,  "one has to put up with things."  "Oh, 1 can do that," said Jthe dissenter  feelingly. "I'can stand lending, and even  being talked to when I want to go to  sleep. But there are some few things I  cannot stand, usually things that could  be avoided. It takes genius not to be  needlessly disagreeable and a genius  which not many roommates possess or  think to cultivsite. I remember," she  went ou with the little laugh which they  told her would make her famous after  dinner sometime, "I remember a red-haired roommate .1 once had who fell in love.  I never saw the man. I was spared that.  But I suppose I carry as accurate a  description of that man's characteristics  and virtues and looks and wise sayings  firmly embedded in my gray matter as  any rogue's gallery would need. She  talked about him all the time���talked to  me about him. Ib is a great burden to  have your roommate fall in love."  "Then there was another, a maddening  philosopher. She was really very pretty,  one wouldn't have believed she could be  such a distractingly calm person. I remember one night Ave tipped over the ink  ���-I think I did it���on a dear, oriental  spread Ave had just bought for the couch.  I��said some things, and respectfully and  expectantly waited for her to echo them.  She sat by the window and drew on at a  Minerva's ear, and she said: 'But, my.  dear girl, what is a bottle of ink in the  sum of your conscious experience? And  Avhat a very little thing is a spoiled  spread in the universe!' And another  day I missed a call���just missed it by ten  minutes, and came in soakiug wet from  the rain besides. And she was in a red  ba throbe by the fire, and when 1 stopped  scolding to get my breath she looked up  aud said : fA little water, "dear girl, in  bhe sum total of time, when nothing matters ? And what is a caller, more or less,  to you, who are mine ?" You can draw  no idea of how maddening that sort of  thing is. She got it all from' an art  teacher of hers who utterly spoiled her  for a sensible girl. I ought to liave had  some college course I suppose before I  could be said to be broadened ; that would  liave educated me up to trailing around  in wet skirts and a floppy hat, and saying  tliat nothing matters."  '^Really, though," ventured the girl  who was visiting, ''that is a beautiful  doctrine, if one would live up to it."  "Live up to it ?" repeated the girl who  had been through it, "I shouldn't h.-ive  minded her living up to it. Where I dissented was at her hurling it at me all the  time. She believed in philosophy. Well  I believe in honesty and in ordinary  squareness and that f look best in red.  But I don't feel drawn to impart these  things to everybody around me. A'  roommate, to be a success, has got to keep  still more than half tho time."   "And you," said the .experiment kindly,  "believe    in   rushing    your   busy   half  through, don't you ?"  The girl in the window seat, being a  philosopher herself, did not mind.  "Some girls, you know," she said, tranquilly, "seem to feel it in the air when  you want them to keep still. Others you  have to tell, and either hurt tlieir feelings or make them mad.     Some know  LODGE   MEETINGS.  KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS- Nolson   lodge.   No,  25,  Knights of Pythias, meets In I. O. O. F.

Some girls are born with  this, as they are with skill at doing up  their hat well, or making dimity dresses,  or saying the right thing. It takes,"  continued the woman with experience,  "a woman with talent to be a roommate."  The new experiment raised a woe-be-  gone face from the couch pillows, and  addressed her: "You have the talent?"  she asked her desparingly.  "Bless you, no!" answered the other  girl, attacking the curtains again. "What  made you think that ?"  "We both gathered the idea," said the  girl in the hat honestly.  "And I truly plan and premediate doing my best," promised the new "experi.  ment.  "My dear," said the woman behind the  curtains, "you have one of the dearest,  prettiest faces I ever saw, and the softest voice I know. Do you suppose, really,  that, you-ought to be expected to have  anything else? Now I'm sorry, but I  must leave you to finish these. And  would you mind, dear," she asked, as she  pinned on her hat, "just brushing off my  skirt for me, please?"  How the Eight-Hour Day "Works.  Pueblo (Colorado) Courier.  We'have*opposed the eight-hour law  from the start, on the grounds that it  was unjust legislation," in that it  fixed the hours of labor for one class of  workmen only, while the workiugmen  and women must still submit to the selfishness of ^avaricious employers. We  must admit, however, that the agitation  of the. law has resulted iu placing the  mines of the San Juan district, in this  state, upon an eight-hour basis, and  they, are all running smoothly and satisfactorily. The mine superintendent of  the Camp Bird says that he is actually  getting more work =0"t of the men in  eight hours than he did under the ten  and twelve-hour system. Tliere is also  a saving to the owner in candles and  other 'things,* which seem insignificant  until measured by long time and large  forces. We were told last week that the  Iowa mine made a test of working forty  men on an eight-hour shift aud the same  number on ten hours and the actual result was favorable to the short shift.  This, of course, settled the matter for  that mine, and so far as we can learn for  all the mines in that county.  Montana's Bribery Hunt.  Helena, November 19.���The Wellcome  disbarment proceedings before the supreme court are believed to be nearly  ended. The attorney-generai ended his  case in the senatorial bribery charges today and the hearing was adjourned until  Monday, when the court will hear arguments.,upon the motion of Wellcome's  counsel to strike out the important parts  of the evidence of senators Myers, Ander-.  son and others relative to conversations  with Whitesides, If the court sustains  the motion the accused will not, it is un  derstood, ' have very much evidence to  offer, if any.    If the motion is overruled  there may be  several  days of testimony.  The attorney-general today i n tended to i n-  troduce evidence comparing the financial  standing of certain members who voted  for Clark for United States senator prior  and subsequent to the Butte man's election.    Tliis was shut out by the ruling of  the court,in sustaining the objection of  Wellcome's counsel to the introduction of  evidence as to the  financial  standing  of  representative McLaughlin  of   Missoula  previous to the session and subsequently,  the court holding the element of time an  important' factor.    The attorney-general  said that he accordingly rested his case.  He made au offer as to certain members,  however.     Testimony may subsequently  be heard as to this, if the court so decides.  When court convened this morning the  question that had beenputto R C. Bereiitz  last night as to the amount of money on  deposit in the bank of Boulder by senator  Warner ait a certain  date  was  changed,  the witness being asked  if he  liad  had  any dealings with Warner in 1898.     The  witness  replied  in the affirmative.    He  had loaned  the  senator .$500.    This was  in the latter  part of Novembei".     The  witness'said iu the following January the  senator had $8000 on deposit.    There liad  been some. $1000 notes.     There was no  cross-examination.     Testimony   relating  to a mortgage on property of a representative from, Missoula county at the time  of the legislative assembly, which  Avas  cancelled soon after Clark|s election, was  ruled out.

Another outbreak of hog cholera has  been reported to Dr. Armstrong, Dominion veterinary surgeon. This time Joseph  Blanchard of Pilot Bay is the sufferer,  losing twelve hogs. It i.s -supposed that  the cholera is contracted by the feeding  of bacon rinds and pork scraps to the  hogs.    Fred Zerbel, who was crushed iu the  Canadian Pacific railway yard ou Sunday  while coupling ears, is progressing favorably. Zerbel was standing sideways in  making the coupling and the cars came  close enough to break three of his ribs.  His outcry prevented further injuries.  Captain Wainewright was before police  magistrate Crease again yesterday upon  the charge of obtaining money from  Lillie Brothers upon false pretences with  intent to defraud. The prisoner was  represented by W. A. Galliher, who asked  for a remand of eight days, upon tlie  understanding that the case could be  called earlier if the prisoner is ready. It  is said that a brother of tlie prisoner's is  on his way to Nelson for the purpose of  straightening matters out.  J. Edwards, the Vancouver fakir who  was permitted to operate in the opera  liouse on Saturday evening, stated before  leaving that he cleaned up just $450 from  the people of Nelson, for -which- he gave  no return whatever.  P. J. Russell, Kootenay manager for  the Parsons Produce Company, was able  to be down town yesterday. He says  that he has gained twenty-five pouuds  since the fever left him, but he is still too  thin to qualify for a fat man's race.  The Canadian Pacific company's barges  cleared out all the accumulated freight  at Kootenay Lauding on Saturday, the  last barge receiving but seven cars. During the week the barges0moved 232 cars  to Nelson, fully half of which number  were consigned to local merchants.  A meeting of the Licensed Victuallers  Association of Nelson was held yesterday  afternoon in the office of Galliher & Wilson, when the bylaws of the association  were approved and adopted, aud several  new members admitted to the organization.

The case of the attorney-general of  Ontario vs. the executors of the late  Daniel Scotten of Detroit for succession  duties ou $900,000, said to have been invested in Canada when Scotten died, was  up before chancellor Boyd yesterday at  Toronto. The executors admit the  amount of $200,000 and have paid duties  on that sum.  The racing yacht Shamrock is being  dismantled at Greenock. She was towed  most of the way across the Atlantic, and  only sailed under her own canvas 230  miles.

The provincial health authorities of  Quebec, upon investigation liave discovered a hundred cases of smallpox in  Kamouraska county. Necessary quarantine has been put iu force to check the  disease from spreading outside that  county.
