The city council met last night, with  mayor Neelands and aldermen Fletcher,  Beer, Kirkpatrick and Hillyer present.  A budget of bills was ordered paid,  amounting to $3024.70.  The Bank of Montreal advised the  council that they could hold the check of  the city for $15,000 as collateral for the  overdraft until the bylaws were passed  to raise funds for the water system and  electric light plant.  A letter was read from E. 0. Arthur,  secretary of the school board, saying that  he was instructed by the school board at  its last meeting to request the council to  apply to the provincial legislation  at its next session to have Nelson  made a separate school district,  and also to ask the government to give  them block 1.) for high school purposes.  Aldermen Beer, Fletcher and .Hillyer  were appointed a committee to confer  with tlie school board relative to? the  matter. The committee Avill meet today  at I p.m. at the city hall.  A communication was read from the  Nelson Tramway Company asking that  the city would observe the provision of  one section of the company's bylaw which  would secure for the street railway company a notice of the intention of plumbers or the gas company or the city of intention to excavate in the streets under  their tracks or otherwise disturb their  traffic. The matter was referred to the  city engineer to see that the request of  the tramway, company is complied with.  A letter was read from Mrs. Ingrain  asking for the continuance of the sidewalk from the corner of limes street to  her residence.    Ib was allowed.  A crossing was ordered to be laid at  tho intersection of Silica and Stanley  streets, and rails ordered to be placed on  all steeply inclined sidewalks. The engineer was instructed to have bhe work  done.  Alderman Hillyer wanted the council  to set aside one street for the use of the  children as a toboggan slide, and strongly  suggested Hall street for this purpose.  Objection was raised, on the ground of  the danger wliich would be incurred at  tlie foot of the street where the electric  railway crosses the street. The matter  was laid over.  The Nelson Brewery asked that the  culvert in front of their place of business  be repaired. Tlie matter was referred  to the city engineer,  A letter was read from R, J. Steele reporting $2002 tax collected.  A letterJ was read from Rosalind K.  ���Stock asking that a committee of tlie  council confer with a committee from the  local women regarding the distribution  of charities. A committee was appointed  consisting of aldermen Hillyer, Beer and  Fletcher.  Mr, Rutherford sent in a complaint of  a heavy stream of water which was flowing across the street in front of his residence on Victoria street, and asked that  tho same be diverted. Referred to city  engineer.  Alderman Fletcher asked the council  to express au opinion on the w harf  question. Tlie discussion was quite exhaustive. Alderman Fletcher said the  city was taking chances every day and  especially every niglit in allowing the  wharf to remain in its present condition.  He did nob chink the burden of repairing  the wharf ought to be borne by the merchants and jobbers of the city, but that  the city ought to borrow $5000 and place  this amount to the credit of the whnif.  The present expense of rebuilding the  _wharf _would__.be _from__$2.*.00_ to_$3500.  There would thus be a surplus of $1,500  remaining to the credit of the wharf for  further use.  Alderman Beer wa nted $r>000 additional  raised at the same time for the use of the  (ire department. Be wished this to he  done by the., present council. But  it was thought that the fire department could ~ be safely left in  the hands of the incoming council.  The result of the discussion was that the  city engineer was instructed to draw up  plans for replanking and widening ten  feet'and also raising the grade tothe  wharf. A petition will be circulated asking the council to propose a bylaw to  raise $5000 for rebuilding the wharf, and  that it he submitted nt the election of  January 1.1th.  The city has applied tothe government  for the water front lands from Ward  street to the eastern boundary of the  townsite. It was decided to respect the  priority of claim held by the Nelson Saw  & Planing Mills Company to that part of  the water front on which their mill is located in front of block 72 A.

PAUL JOHNSON'S SMELTER WILL  Be Built to'1 Smelt Ore.  When in Nelson, Paul  Johnson  ofthe  Greenwood smelter, whieh is now in  course of construction, exhibited a few  specimens of ore from the Mother Lode  mine, which is owned by the people who  are building the smelter. The ore was.  yellow copper and iron pyrites, carrying  7 to 8 per cent copper and $1.4 to $15 iu  gold ; yellow copper and lime rock, carrying 12 per cent copper and $S in gold;  and yellow.copper and iron ore, carrying.  9 to 10 per cent copper and $10 to $12 in  gold. The vein is 180 feet wide on the  surface, and a shaft is down on it 320  feet. The smelter will start with one  800-ton furnace, and it is so laid out that  six additional furnaces can be added as  required. Mr. Johnson claims that they  will be smelting 2000u tons of- ore a day  inside of two years, and doing ib at a  price not above $1 a ton.  LOCAL   NEWS   IN   BRIEF.

BRITAIN HAS AN UPHItt FICHT  Boers Full of Confidence. ;  London, December 5.���There is little  further news from the seat of war. Even  the latest accounts of the battle at Modder River fail to give an intelligent idea  of what happened. There is a feeling of  disappointment, and a continuing anxiety  respecting general lord Methuen. The  Times says editorially: "The battle  afforded splendid proof of the unsurpassed qualities of the British soldier,  but while victories won solely by the  exercise of these qualities are indeed  magnificent, they arc not war. They fill  us with pride, but with pride not unmin-  gled with regret at the persistent perversity of circumstances, which, apparently, prevents us obtaining equal oi*  greater results by processes savoring a  little of that military science of which  we hear so much."  Mafeking is safe, or was so on Noveni-.  ber 21th. The British had captured 25  burghers of commander Dutert's force. ;  An Associated Press dispatch from-  Durban says that persons arriving there  from Pretoria, assert that the Boers are  full of confidence, and are well prepared  for a six months'seige of Pretoria.  Patriotic demonstrations in , the  theatres and music hall of London  continue unabated. There was a remarkable scene at the Empire last evening  when Mrs. Brown-Potter recited a poem  called "Ordered to the Front," with soldiers and sailors grouped around. On  each side of Mrs. Potter stood a sailor,  on carrying the British and "the other the  American flag. When the curtain fell and;  rose again to an encore, she tied the  two flags together;* amid loud cheers, the  entire audience rising and singing "God  .Save the Queen."   .  An official dispatch from Cape Town  announced that the Tsmore broke up yesterday evening. Her stern is out of the  water, but her bow is aground. All  hands were saved.  The afternoon newspapers welcome the  appointment of F. Hay as United States  consul rat Pretoria. The St. James Gazette says: "The appointment of Mr.,  Hay is- one of those small but significantly important signs -by which the im~-  partial observer can test the sincerity * of.  the good feeling between ourselves and  bhe United States.  Cape Town. December J.--The British  transport Hurona, from New Orleans,  Novembei* 3rd, has arrived here. The  transport Canning, from London November 12th, has also arrived here with bhe  First battery of howitzers.  '*  Meats May Go Higher.  "The price of meats may and very  likely will be lowered just a shade within  the next few months, but the demand  wilt be crowding the supply before six  months, and prices for all meat products,  and especially pork, will go higher," said  W. E. Howe, a packer front Omaha yesterday. Mr, Howe is making a tour of  the west, including the Kootenay  country, -*  The Board of Trade Excursion.  The Canadian Pacific board of trade  excursion to the Boundary country will  leave Nelson on Thursday morning and  reach Green wood, that  night..: The iiext  Anticipate a Lively Trade.  Without exception the merchants of  Nelson anticipate a holiday trade tliat  will be a record breaker. Tliere are more  people, more goods, and more money, and  these three factors cannot but insure a  heavy trade. The holiday goods are already moving, but the bulk of the buying will begin next week and increase  daily until Christmas. Tliere are many  pretty and attractive things to be had,  books, toilet articles, edibles and a thousand other tilings, and among the latter  there are many dainty souvenirs of Nelson, which have been designed especially  for this city and intended to be sent to  friends in other parts of the world. It  will be just as difficult to select a remembrance fbr your friend this year as ever.  There is a multitude of articles, and they  are almost entirely beautiful.  The Prentice Trial Fixed.

CONFERENCE HELD AT SANDON  Between Representative Business Men.  New Denver, December 1.���Tomorrow  the Silver-Lead Mines Association will  hold another meeting at Sandon, and one  whieli, it is confidently believed, will be  the means of terminating the labor  trouble in the Slocaiu The main business  of the meeting, it is said, will be the  appointment  of a.  committee  to  confer  officially with   representatives  of   the  miner.1-' union, and endeavor to settle all  differences. Both sides seem and profess  to be willing, so a definite arrangement  should be arrived at. The situation has  again appeared hopeful as a result of the  informal conference, or interview, or talk,  held last week at Sandon, those present  being John Keen, George O. Buchanan  aud O. T. Stone, representing the Kaslo  Board of Trade; George W, Hughes, A.  W. Wright, C. H. Hand and F. A. Wood  of the Silvor-Lead Mines Association,  several members of the Miners' Union;  aud mayor Pitts of Sandon, It has been  given out by some of those present that  the feeling expressed was decidedly in,  favor of a settlement. The association  members, it is reported, were agreeable  to recognizing the union and conceding  all points and wages asked for, excepting  to hand drillers and machine men, to  whom they offer $&.'l~i to the former and  $.'..50 to thelatter,and Jj.fi.50 for shaft work.  This is as it is explained in Sandon,  though the "inference" is classed a* being  totally "unofficially." Friends of both  parties look for a definite announcement  this week.   Prominent Temperance Worker Dead.  Cornwall, Ontario, December 4.���Mips  Jennie McArthur, president of Stoiinont  county W. C. T. I'., and treasurer of the  Ontario provincial W. C, T. U. who was  well known in temperance circles  throughout the Dominion, died here this  morning in the general hospital from  typhoid-pneumonia.  First Death Anion*? the Canadians.

Justice Martin opened a sitting of the  supreme court yesterday when the case  of Vanstone vs. Buckworth was called.  This case was adjourned from the last  court of assize. In it the plaintiff, J. L.  Vanstone of this city, i.s suing A. B.  Buckworth of Ymir, for damages owing  to his failure to deliver .5000 shares of  stock in the Tamarac mine, which the  plaintiff alleges were purchased by him.  The case was still in progress when the  court rose. S. S. Taylor, Q.C., appeared  for the plaintiff, and Macdonald and  Burne for the .defendant.  All tlie cases against the Ymir Gold  Mining Company, for the collection of  wages, have been dismissed. The miners  who sued were It. C. Buchanan, Harry  Kennedy and Charles Thomas. They  were among the men who were imported  from Sudbury to work for six months  under contract at the Ymir mine. They  afterwards declined. to work for the  period contracted for, and sued for some  $40, which they claimed whs due for  labor performed. The interest in the  case hinged upon the attack which would  have been made by the Ymir. company  against the Master and Servant Act,  which invalidates contracts for labor  made outside the province, but as the  the cases were dropped the Act so obnoxious to to.'labor employing corporations  remains ou the statute book.  The    adverse    action    which    Frank  Fletcher liad entered against A. J. Marks  ; and W. J, .Goepel, in tlieir application for  a   certificate   of  improvements   for  the  Snowwater mineral claim has been dis-  j continued.    The plaintiff will  be obliged  Ito  pay  costs.    The Snowwater  miueral  claim  is  located  in  the. vicinity of the  .Whitewater.  The Dunlop vs. Haney case is iii the  court again. Justice Martin very nearly  took it out of court a short time ago by  a judgment in which he recited that  neither the plaintiff nor defendant had  any "right to the mineral ground in dispute, which embraces one of the early locations in'the Rossland camp." From this  Haney appealed to the full court  from hO much of the judgment as de-  'clared that he was . not eutitled  to tl.esgrouiid aud the appeal was allowed  with costs. The case now stands in this  shape: The court has declared that Dunlop is not entitled to the ground, but the  Dunlop interest has secured a certificate  of improvements. Haney has as yet  nothing in hand but a lawsuit to upset  the Dunlop certificate.  Menelik of Abyssinia in 1897, was solely  concerned with the delimitation of the  frontiers of Erythrea and the Soudan  and the details of frontier arrangements  affecting intercourse between the two  territories. It was the presence in  Italy of commissioner Martini, who  is governor of Erythrea, which  suggested the expediency of the  conference. The Associated Press is  officially informed that emperor William  of Germany was neither consulted nor  interested in the arrangement, which  was purely oue of boundaries upon which  Italy, more a.s a. matter of courtesy than  anything else, was consulted. No element of offensive or defensive alliance  was considered, and the reports to that  effect are officially characterized as absolutely untrue.  SLOCAN LIKELY TO BE A SCENE  Of "Railroad Activity in the Spring.  New Dknver December 4.���Rumors  galore are current respecting railway development in the lake country next  spring. These seem to have tlieir foundation first, in the operations. of a  Kaslo & Slocan survey party between  here and Three Forks recently; and  secondly, in the visit of C. E. Perry to  Ten-mile camp in the interests of the  Canadian Pacific railway. The heavy  investments of the Warner-Miller and  Mansfield syndicatss in the Slocan this  year are held to -be. the-main cause of  these railway preliminaries. Developments now proceeding on Lemon, Springer  and the headwaters of Ten-mile are sufficient to warrant the attention of the  rival railways, especially when backed up  by the yearly output of the Enterprise of  10,000 tons, the undoubted ��� resources of  Four-mile and the promising showings  round New Denver. Ten-mile, however,  appears to be the storm center, and interesting developments maybe looked for  there in the spring.  SLOCAN NEWS  ITEMS.  A NEW WHARF A NEW ISSUE  Shippers Met Last Night.  A meeting of the Nelson merchants who  are interested in securing good shipping  facilities was held last evening for the  purpose of determining what action  should be taken, with a view to securing  for Nelson shipping facilities in keeping  with the trade of tlie city. There were  represented at the meeting the following  firms: Parsons Produce Company, John  Cholditch &Co.t F.���It.���Stewart���fc-Co.���  Kootenay Supply Co., II. Byers & Co.,  Vancouver Hardware Company, A.. Macdonald & Co., California Wine Co., Turner, Beeton & Co., and Brackman <fc Ker.  The feeling of the meeting was that a  new wharf should be built rather than  that $5000 should be frittered away in  attempting to repair the present wharf.  The argument was advanced that the  wholesale trade which was being built up  in Nelson was not appreciated by thecity  council or the citizens generally. It was,  however, a business which furnished employment for over 100 men and disbursed  in salaries over $10,000 per month, and  deserved some consideration from the city  council.,  What the trade required was a new  and a wider wharf, as well a-, a warehouse for the storing of foods. At, present with no shelter afforded for the  protection of goods the local merchants  had but one hour in the day in which to  make shipments on the Kootenay lake  steamers. The result was a general  crowding, and ib very frequently happened that owing to the short lime allowed for shipping, goods were refu-ed  at the steamers.  The sentiment of the majority of those  at the meeting was that an issue should  be made of the wharf question at the  approaching municipal election, and the  influence of bhe merchants thrown one  way in order to ensure fair treatment in  the matter of unproved shipping facilities,  Cutting Down the Story.  Rojib, December .4.���-The conference  here between marquis Visconti Venosta-  and commissioner Martini, the British  ambassador, sir Philip Currie and James  Ilennell Itodd,;the British consul general  in Egypt, who was ���specialenvoy-to king  Toronto parties, acting through W. S.  Drewry, have bonded the Silverite group  of live claims from A. C. Allen, J. Cory.  pS. Foster and J. F. Kelly. These claims  are on the Sandon slope and" have, the  Queen Bess lead exposed, showing clean  ore in a number.'of places. The -figures  involved are believed to be $50,000. \V.  Koch was given the contract to pub iip a  new buiikhou.se, and it is purposed to extensively develop the group during the  winter.  The Madison force has been increased  to 29 men. The new buildings will be  completed in a few days.  Ore shipments from the camp are made  up of 40 tons from the Noble Five, CO  from the Rambler-Cariboo and 48 from  the native Silver Bell.  Eighteen claims are under bond to the  Warner-Miller people in the vicinity of  the Skylark and Ranger group. This in  itself constitutes quite a camp, the effect  of wliich is being felt in Slocan City  business circles.  Messrs. MacMastcr and Thrasher of  Rochester, New York, have taken over*  the Hartney group, on Silver mountain,  from A. II. Bhiemenauer and associates.  The property will be steadily developed.  ���For-the-past-six- weeks-packcrs-have-  been busy taking supplies up Ten-mile to  the growing camp in the vicinity of the ,  big glacier. During the week large  quantities of general necessities have  been landed for transport up the creek,  including rawhides, tools, coal, powder,  provisions, etc. The Warner-Miller people are actually developing all their  bonded properties, and purpose thoroughly testing each claim. This may also be said of the Mansfield people, and  the Glacier camp will be a thriving section from now on.  THE FICHT AT MODDER RIVER  Described by War Correspondents.  London. December   .1.���Julian  Ralph,  ! describing in the Daily Mail this morning  the battle at Modder River, says: " I can  testify that the  Biiti-.li never  once saw  the enemy, yet  they  were not able  to  raise hand or foot without being riddled.  Despite all  this,  however,  the day belonged  to   the   artillery.    The  infantry  never advanced   two  paces  during  the  day  of  holl.    The  shells of our twenty  guns   were   accurately   placed    in    the  enemy's  trenches, and  broke the  hearts  of  the  Boers,  for, after  dark,  they all  retreated.  The correspondent of the Associated  Press with general lord Methuen's column, telegraphing from Modder River  last Thursday say-,: The Waterloo of  the campaign has been fought and won.  The battle was conducted with unprecedented stubbornness on both sides.  There was one continuous roar like the  explosion of countless firecrackers. There  was no flinching on either side and not a  moment's pause. For five hours the  British batteries poured tons of shrapnel  and grape into the Boer positions. Lord  Methuen had 22 guns and each fired an  average of 200 rounds* The Boers had  an almost equal number of guns, whieli  it is reported, were mostly served by  French and German artilleryists.  It is believed that the Boers had occupied the position se\en weeks before, and  had spent the interval in fortifying it,  rendering it as they considered impregnable. They did not seem to fear to expend their ammunition; and their guns  were well and smartly handled. Owing  to the bend in the river on the right, the  Boers had an opportunity of cross-firing  ou the British attack. A Boer Hotchkiss  was directed with marvellous accuracy  against a British maxim, killing the  seargeanb in chief, wounding another  officer and disabling the gun. This occurred quite at the beginning of the  engagement. Whenever the Boer fire  was silenced iu one direction, it was immediately reopened in another.  Owing to the terrific fire nobody ou  the plain was out of range. Stretcher  bearers found it impossible to go forward  in the few cases they were called upon  to attend, and the wounded were compelled, if possible, to "crawl out of the  lines. No quarter seems to have been  given ou either side. The British assert}  that amid the bullets the ^mbulanvu  wagons displayed their flags prominently  to no advantage. These were repeatedly  driven back and compelled to take refuge  out of sight.  , Jt is alleged that tlie Boers used dum  dum bullets and made special targets of  the liaises on the plam in the hope of  hitting the riders. While the .Argyle  Highlanders, were pushing across the  river they were fited upon from a house  and seveial fell. Thereupon the Highlanders stormed the house, and although  the Boers hoij-ted a white Hag, no attention was paid to it, and all the Ro.*i_-  were shot. Ib is tepoited that general J  Cronje with his contingent, retreated toward*. Lagenbcrg at 4 o'clock iu the  uf tei noon, Others, followed in the diiee-  tion of Jacobs-dale and the main body of;  the Boer's letired with the guns about H  o'clock in the evening.  On bhe following morning ut daybreak  the British fired a few shells into the village. Getting no response, a patrol of  cavalry crossed the liver and found the  enemy's cam), dc-etted. Dead Boers, and  many who were dying, were to be seen  every wheie in the entrenchments, as well  as numerous-new���grave*-.���Several build- ���  ings wote in smoking min*.. Some of the  Boor pi isoner-. say that general Cronje  was iu supreme command. He had to  whip some of his men to prevent them  from deserting, and despite this many  thiew down their rifles and fled.  The special c-ii'icspondcnt of the Daily  New*, with .(one*]al Methuen, telegraphing  rom M .pldjr river  on   the d ty after the  buttle, says:   "1  hear  that tho Boers aie  in full retreat to Blopiiifoiuein."  Lord Mayor Newton's Case.  London*, December 4.���At the conclusion today of the investigation into the  concern with which lord mayor Newton  was said to have been unfavorably mixed  up, justice Wright said he had no judgment to give. Uo added that the investigation was solely to enable the official receiver of the company to take any  proceedings if he p-*o dc-iired. It was due  to lord mayor Newton, he declared, to  say that he had successfully resisted the  attempt of promoter Mendel to appropriate -��28,000 for his own purposes.  .Such articles of association howtn'or, according to justice, coiibititled nothing  short of a scandal, and it was highly desirable, in Ids opinion that tlie law-  should limit powers conferred tliereby  which at present placed the public at the  mercy of promoters.

It is understood that the Trail smelter  has decided to change the basis of purchasing lead ores. Formerly the basis of  paying for lead was to allow the miners 90  per cent of the lead contents at the New  York quotations, less one and one-half  cents per pound on 100 per cent of the  lead contents. The new basis to be  adopted will be to pay for 90 per cent of  the lead at the London quotations for  Spanish soft lead, less $14 per short ton  on 90 per cent of the contents. As the  present London price is only about *,' of a  cent less than the isew York price, this  allows the miners about $3 per ton more  for the lead in their ore than they obtained on the old basis.  .0  # :  .^i. *  m  m  SPECIAL SALE  OP MILLINERY  IRVINE & CO.

AVhen differences exist between two parties, they are seldom settled- either speedily or amicably if the parties refuse to  meet each other as principals or through  agents.

The way  to confer is'to confer, and the way to adjust differences is to meet and discuss the  points of" difference.   The men Avho can  give  and  take can  alAvay.s  come  to an  agreement.  The Revelstoke Herald has severely  criticized A. S. Farwell of Nelson for refusing to lease certain blocks of land in  Revelstoke to. the corporation for the  uses of the city. As a matter of fact, Mr.  Farwell has neither refused to lease nor  to sell land  to the City of Revelstoke.  ' What he has refused to do is "release"  certain blocks of land, so that the city  would acquire the land without the payment of a cent for it.
