 k  >  THE CITY BYLAWS ABE ALL BAD  Effect of Justice Martin's Decision.  -^ The judgment of Mr. justice Martin in  ' the case of Traves vs. the City of Nelson  reached Nelson yesterday. So far as it  eould be, it is a complete victory for E. C.  Traves in his fight against the fire-limit  bylaw of the city, and incidentally the  opinion of the court is given tliat all the  city bylaws which were supposed to have  beeu brought into effect by revising bylaw No. 2i) are of no effect. Just what  action tlie members of tlie city couucil  will take in the matter has yet to be  decided. It is open for tlie council to appeal from the judgment of Air. justice  Martin to tlie full court, when the whole  case would bo reopened. Tlie general  opinion is tlmt tliis course will be adopted.  Traves vs. City of Nelson.  Acting under the provisions of bylaw  No. 7 of its revised bylaws, the defendant  corporation on the 15th day of July last  notified the plaintiff iu writing to pull  down and remove within seven days  "a building or addition to a building,  now erected or in course of erection " in  tlie city of Nelson, within the fire limits  as defined by that bylaw, and further,  that if the plaintiff made default in so  removing the building it would be removed by the corporation at the plaintiff's  expense. Thereupon this action was  ^- commenced aud an interim injunction obtained to prevent the threatened trespass, and the plaintiff now asks for a perpetual injunction aud damages.  A number of objections are taken to  the validity of the bylaw, and I shall  consider first that which I now deem  most important.  �� This bylaw derives its existence from  and under bylaw No. 25, "for revising and consolidating tlie " bylaws of the city of Nelson." Objection  was taken to the manner of passing it  through the council, and the details of  procedure there adopted, such . as not  actually reading or considering the whole  bylaw or the printed roll A (the first two  pages of the revising bylaw 2o, containing the operative words were read); but  I regard the particular matters so complained of as.being " domestic " in their  nature, and, no objection having been  taken at the time, it is now too late to  do so.  But a peculiar epiestion here arises by  reason of section 1 of this revising bylaw  25, which i.s :  1. Tlufpniilecl roll marked ' A,".md .itte-.-'d as thai of  (he draft revision und ecu .olul.Uicui under the s Kii.it uru  of the iiiii)ui*nnd the city (lerk of the utj of Nelson, and  deposited in the ollice di Ihe cit j (lerk of lhc said. cit.,  shall be held In be the original tho* (.of.  it appears by the cross-examination ofthe city elerk that at the time the council  finally passed the "revising bylaw tlie  , printed roll "A" had not been attested  under*the signature of the mayor and  city elerk, and that this was not done  until after the council meeting liad adjourned, and at the s,amc time that the  mayor and city clerk attested the revising  bylaw, roll "A" was not atauy time actually read or considered by the council.  Counsel for the defendant argued that  all regularity in favor of the bylaw must  be presumed, and that therefore the coin t  could not inquire into tlie attestation of  roll "A."    On the other hand plaintiff's  counsel urges that, while  admitting  the  doctrine   of   favorable   ��> resumption   in  general,   yet in   the  presence of direct  evidence the doctrine ha*, no application.  It is here established as a fact that at the  time the council was exercising its legislative functions there was nothing upon  which   those   functions   could    operate.  There wad no roll iu existence which had  been attested  in the manner prescribed  - by-section-1,-or attested-ul all.��� The~  (���oiinciL adjourns and disperses, aud after  that   the   mayor and clerk affix   their  signatures to a document.    The case for  the city must be that Mich subsequent  attestation brought into existence a particular attested  roll,  which  the council  had treated as being already actually before it, but which as a matter of fact was  not.    During the argument counsel were  unable to refer me to any case decided  upon such circumstance.^, and it is not  surprising,   for   the  occurrence   is    ono  hardly to have  been  looked  for.     The  nearest ca.so I havo been able to discover  is "The London St Canadian Loan Company vs.  Rural  Municipality of Morris,  (1890) 7  Mor.  J 28."   There an  attempt  was made to have the court investigate  certain alleged fraudulent  irregularities  in tlie passage of a bill through a provincial legislature, but it was held that the  mode or means of passage could  not be  inquired into after the bill had become an  Act by passing the house and receiving  the royal assent.     That case,  while  an  authority in i-upport of the view 1 have  taken as to  a  presumption  in  favor  of  regularity in the parsing of the revising  bylaw, docs not. of course, go to the point  now taken.    What is now complained of  is   something   far   removed   from    our  irregularity. The section here in question  i.s the same, mutatis mutandis, as that of  the same number in the "Act Respecting  thellevisedStatutes of British Columbia,"  J1.S.BC. CXI.    In that case the printed  mil "A" is required to be attested by the  lieutenant-governor   and   clerk   of   the  liouse,    Now assuming that the Act had  received the royal assent, and it after-.  wards turned out. that at the time of the  passage   of   the  Act  no   such  roll  was  in existence, could it be successfully argued that   the   laws  of  this   province  WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 27,  1899  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY,   $2.  would depend upon an unidentified document, afterwards brought into life? It  seems to me that it would be dangerous  in the extreme to sanction such a state of  affairs. And the danger is increased in  the case of a municipal council where  there would be more opportunity for the  operations of unscrupulous persons, if so  disposed.  1 am driven to tho conclusion, somewhat reluctantly if I may say so, that the  objection is too serious, in the public interest, to pass over, and that there is no  way by which such a defect in legislation,  parliamentary ormunicipal, can be cured.  The revising bylaw is good, so far as it  is itself concerned, but it has operated on  nothing, aud has brought nothing into  existence, therefore the plaintiff has not  been guilty of any offence against it, aud  his rights of property have been unlawfully interfered with by the corporation,  relying on a bylaw, No. 1, which never  had any' foundation whatever for even  being so termed.  Such being the view I take it is not  necessary to consider the other objections. But the point is submitted by the  defeudant that the suit or action is  barred by section 91 of the Municipal  Clauses Act (sections 91 and 92 of the Act  are here cited). A section in Ontario  similar to 91 has received much judicial  attention for many. years past, notably  in the case of Connor vs. Middagh, IC,  A 11, 350, where the principal decisions  arc reviewed. *       *    .  *       *        *  I regard this action as being substantially one for au injunction, to whieh the  plaintiff is entitled. The course he took  was the only one then open to him to  save his property from destruction;  but as to damages I do not think  I should, in view of the above authorities, entertain the question. Perhaps  I shall state that in my opinion the case  of Midland Railway Company vs. With-  ington Local Board (1883) 52 L. J., Q. B.,  (389, does not take the defendant's case  further than the Ontario cases do. There  will be an injunction as prayed, and the  plaintiff should have liis costs.  Police Magistrate's Conviction Quashed.  Traves was also successful in the certiorari proceedings to quash the conviction of police magistrate Creaso under  which Traves was lined $100 for a breach  of the fire limits bylaw. In his judgment  in this case Mr. justice Martin says : As I  understood the course of the argument,  I am to entertain in this application the  objections taken, and the argument  therein pro and con, in the ca.se of Traves  vs. Nolson, which was argued immediately before this motion, and also two additional objections herein taken by Mr.  Taylor. In view of the faer, that I have,  just delivered judgment in the prior case  to the effect th.at no such bylaw as the  corporation relies upon ever had any  existence, it would seem unnecessary to  consider the other points raised, and I  shall not do so uuless counsel shall communicate with the district registrar at  Nelson and show reasons for my doing so.  SEVERE STORM IN ALASKA.  Vk'tohia, December 27.���Tho steamer  Tees of this city arrived at noon from  Skagway with fifteen passengers after a  very rough trip. Among her passengers  were a number of late arrivals from Dawson;���The- Tees was- delay eel-for- three  days at Skagway awaiting the train  wliich had been laid up from Monday to  Friday by one of tho most severe wind  and snow storms ever'known in Alaska.  It commenced ou tho-lSth and lasted to  the 22nd. Several of the passengers on  the steamer were among those stormbound ou the train. Some left the train  at tho tunnel and marched to .Skagway  and others were brought to that city by  a special train.  The train on which the passengers  came from Bennett followed tlie rotary  and was pushed by two engines. When  tlie plow was a mile south of the switchback it cut out tho lower part of tho  accumulated face of snow on the face of  the mountain hide. This loosened tho  mass above and it came down with a  rush, burying the plow and locomotives  out of sight. The passenger train behind  was not touched by tlie .slide. There  were fifteen feet of snow in the cut. After  the rotary had been freed from the bank  which buried it, it struck a boulder  hidden in the snow, and of its twenty  steei knives, only seven were left. Food  was secured by the stormbound people at  the rate of 50 cents for a cup of coffeo  and sandwich on tho train.  A Few Insurgents Are Still Left.  Manila, December 20.���General Santa  Ana witli a force of insurgents estimated  at 300 attacked the garrison at Sitbig  yesterday. A body of marines were sent  from Olongapo to reinforce the garrison,  and the Filipinos were driven back, several being killed. There were no casualties  on the American side. A company of the  46th volunteer infantry, together with a  been   sent  Snbig  gar-  contingeut   of   marines,  has  from Manila to reinforce the  rispn artillery still further.  FRANCE   IS   IN   AN   UPROAR  Over the Conspiraoy Trials.  Pauls, December 20.���The public prosecutor this afternoon began his opening  speech before the high court (senate) in  the conspiracy case's,    Ho reviewed the  evidence which, he said showed the conspiracy was more dangerous  than when  tho compte de Paris so far forgot the traditions of   his family as  to join hands  with general   Boulauger.     This   evoked  noisy protests from the audience, and the  excited M.  Jules Guerin called upon the  president of the council, M. Fallieres, not  to permit the  prosecutor  to  indulge in  such  insulting   remarks, but the prosecutor continued, saying  that the  same  men who conspired  ten ��� years  ago  had  again plotted to overthrow the  republic.  The compte de Paris, he added, was dead,  but the  due D'Orleans pursued the same  system.    The remarks of the  prosecutor  were soon drowned by the  vehement interruptions of the prisoners.  M. Fallieres rang his bell to restore  order and eveutually the prosecutor Avas  heard to declare that he had decided,  owing to want of evidence to abandon  the prosecution of six of the prisoners,  M. Chevilly, Frenchencourt, Brunei,  Cailly, Bourm'unt and Balliere. He then  recapitulated the story of the anti-republican machination of the due D'Orleans  and his agent, M. Buffet. The latter violently protesting,an uproar ensued, many  of the senators demanding 31. Buffet's expulsion. Three of the prisoners, Cailly,  Bruuet, and Jules Guiles then shouted if  M. Buffet was expelled from the session,  they would also wish to be expelled.  Perfect pandemonium reigned. Finally  the court in secret session decided to expel both Buffet and Cailly until their  counsel's speech for the defence.  THREE WEEKS AT MODDER RIVER  Guess at Methuen's Flans.  London, December 27.���The Cape Town  correspondent of the Daily News telegraphing Wednesday, December 20th,  says:.*, 'tGenei'aljVIethuen, I understand,  intends to remain at 3fodder River about  three weeks longeiv From Boer sources  hitherto singularly well informed I learn  that there are eight thousand European  officers and men skilled in modern military tactics, particularly artillery, now  in Pretoria, as a reserve. An administrative officer in the Cape service, who  litis just returned from officii}! relieving  duty in the Dutch district, says the news  of the British reverses has been received.  with great joy, even in localities where  there is no open revolt."  -London, December 27���4:50 a.m.���Despatches from South" Africa are still  greatly delayed, but they are arriving  more freely, which shows that the censorship has been relieved.  The transport Tantallon Castle has  arrived at Cape Town with a number of  howitzers and quick-firing guns, which  general Buller urgently needs. The gov^  ~eT'njneivt_lias~cliai*tereci the Lake Erie, of  tho new Elder Dempster Company Line,  which Avas built for the. Canadian mail  ���service. She is a vessel of 12,000 tons.  The recruiting of t-he Britii.li colonists in  Cape Colony is actively proceeding.  Thirty thousand are already under arms,  aud several thousand more will be added.  Tlie tests t of wireless telegraphy at  Modder river, have been highly successful, communication over ji distance of  seventy mile.*, being perfectly established,  Marconi instruments intended for the  Boer.*-, have been Sfiiy.ed at Capo Town.  A dispatch'from Chieveley camp, dated  Thursday. December 21 says: "Lyddite  shells are daily thrown into Boer camp to  prevent them working at the trenches.  The firing of big guns i.s heard daily from,  tho direction of Ladysmith."  Big Snowslide at Glacier.  0...ACI..I., December 27, 1:30 a. in.- -Tiiw.*  operator at Glacier reports that an Inii-  meuse avalanche swept down the mountain, covering 850 feet of the track and.  taking out five telegraph poles and prostrating tho wires. Trees v. Ave inches  thick were observed in the slide, and it is  not known what else may be uuder the  surface and what is the pondition of the  track. TJie slide covers the track five to  twenty feet deep.  Taken at a True Valuation.  Washington, December 2(5,���At tl.e  state department and the Britisli embassy  not the slightest attention is being paid!  to the many stories of Fenian activity  that are appearing in newspapers in all  parts* of the United States. Officials of  the state department when asked regarding tlie stories published shrug their  shoulders and say they are uot worth  noticing. "������--. ..    J  MORE THAN  HOLDS HIS OWN  Burghers Captured at Modder River.  London, December 27.���Despatches  from Modder River, dated Thursday,  December 21st report that intermittent  firing was continuing on both sides although the Boer shells fell short. A  number of Free .State burghers, had surrendered. There is an unconfirmed report that a Canadian picket was cut off  near Belmont. It is also asserted that  fever is raging among the Boers.  There appears to be no change in the.  situation. A despatch from Lorenzo  Marques, dated Thursday,December 21st,  gives the following from the Boers' headquarters dated Tuesday, December 19th :  "The British naval guns at Coienso, have  been cannonading Bulwer Bridge, over  the Tugela River, with a view of smashing it. The bombardment of Ladysmith  is proceeding slowly.  London, December 27.���More British  prisoners have been sent to Pretoria, including Colonel Bullock, majors Walters,  Bulwark, Foster and Dick, captains Nort-  ern, Fiteherbert, Ford, Hutchinson,  lieutenants Bronham, Smythes, Bourne,  O'Conney, Kuubauld, Christian, Sprigg,  Birch, Halfard, Larbull and Jones.  A dispatch to the Daily News from  Ladysmith, dated December 15th, by telegraph says, " In another sortie last night  general Hunter with 500 volunteers, destroyed one six-inch creusote gun, one'  Howitzer and one '������ Maxim, one Briton  killed.   The Boers gunners fled."  There is an idea iu some quarters here  that geueral Buller's destruction of the  Tugela bridge, heralds an attempt to cut  off the Boers now south of the river, but  the general opinion is, that the British  will not make any serious move pending  the arrival bf general Roberts.  DOES NOT WANTTHEM NOW  Germany Will Not Buy Danish West Indies.  Ri_ri_in, December 20.���The German  government has definitely abandoned all  idea of acquiring the Danish West Indies,  either by purchase or otherwise." The  correspondent of the Associated Press received this information from an authoritative source today. The German embassy  in Washington has left no doubt that  any such attempt would be looked upon  by the Americans as an unfriendly act  and as a serious infringement of the Monroe doctrine. According to the same  authority the reports representing that  Denmark is negotiating to sell the islands  to the United States are either entirely  premature or without foundation.  BfiitUN, December 20. ��� There was  another heavy snowfall iu Germany today and street traffic is greatly impeded.  One lesson from the severe snows of the  last two weeks is* that the accumulator  electric car system is a failure. The Berlin lines will substitute  overhead  wires.  HAPPENINGS OF THE DAY.  It seems probable that the net receipts  of the Mansion House fund smoker will  "riurclot-e to S-.SO0.

At the residence of judge  Forin the musicians were entertained to  cocoa and cake.   On  Monday evening a  Christmas  tree for the youngsters  was  unveiled at the barracks.    Ensign Lester  presided and  about 3.50  spectators were  .crowded- into the   hall.    The tree   was  laden with gifts for the little ones,  and  the distribution of presents proved a rare  treat.   During the evening the members  of the baud presented bandmaster Frost  with a handsome silver watch, in evidence  of   their   appreciation    of   his   services.  About  $30 was realized forthe purpose  of adding new instruments to the band  equipment.    On  Tuesday and   Wednesday next, staff-captain  Gage, chancellor  at Spokane, will visit Nelson for the purpose of bestowing commissions  on various members of the corps here.

NEWSPAPER CRITICISM IS ACTIVE  Everyone is Abusing War Oflice.  London, December 27.���The newspapers continue actively discussing and  criticizing the management of the campaign. " The advent of ' horse sickness,  throw**; increased attention on the question of the transports and the want of  wagons-which may tie up the British  forces to railways.  The Daily Chronicle says : " Plenty of  wagons could be obtained from the, United States but tho government with very  indiscreet patriotism, have refused to  avail themselves of the opportunity. It  would have been better if the authorities had followed lord Kitchener's example at Atbara Bridge. Will they even  now apply tothe American factories?"  The Times editorially attacks the administration of tho war oflice, calling  attention to correspondence discIo.<��ing  ���'glaring defects" and declaring that the  British army is being managed for the  benefit of the war office and not of tho  nation.

THE WARNER MILLER SYNDICATE  Have Struck it on the Smuggler.  New Denver,  December  25. ��� The  operations on the Warner Miller syndicate  in the Slocan are meetingwith pronounced  success,   and   the   corporation   has   undoubtedly succeeded iu securing control  of some very valuable property.     Chief  among the latter is the Smuggler group,  in the vicinity of the Molly Gibson, a  mine which it bids fair to rival.     Late  arrivals in town. from.the head of Ten-  mile state that the crosscut driven  in on  the Smuggler to tap the lead, has attained the desired  goal, with a   magnificent  showing of 14 inches of ore as soon as the  vein was tapped.    Almost the  whole  of  this is tho solid, shipping  article, and  is  similiar in character to that of the Molly  Gibson.     The    management is  greatly  pleased with the results of the development, and will actively work the new  strikeduring tho winter.    It is given out  that so soon  as the snow is gone  in tlie  spring a wagon road will be built up Ten-  mile creek to the new camp by the syndicate, tapping the Enterprise road at Ayl-  win.    The  contract for packing in sup- ���  plies   from   Ten-mile   was   finished last  week and the horses taken off the  creek.  All the mines in the camp closed down  Saturday for the usual  Christmas holidays.    The   effect   on  business  in  Sandon   aud   this   place    Avas  pronounced.  A splendid beginning, as  a  shipper  is  being made  by  the  Florida,  a  Jackson  basin property.    Its second shipment in  a fortnight went outlast week, consisting  of 19 tons.    The Florida is credited with  over a foot of ore,  and as  a  result the  price of stock is stiffening rapidly.  At tho Queen Bess three men are  stoping ore under lease, in the No. 3  workings. The management reports 102  tons of ore mined last month, at an estimated net value of $0800,  ��� Next Monday another one cent per  share dividend will be paid the lucky  shareholders in the Rambler-Cariboo.  On Wednesday next the Siver-Lead  Mines Association will hold another meeting at Sandou,��at which will be reported  the result of the committee's official conferences with the miners' unions looking  towards a settlement of the present labor  question. It js understood that the reply  of the men is in the form of a counter  proposition to the association regarding  the compromise offer, and this will come  before the managers at the meeting. The  situation in the camp just. now, _ apart-  from the numerous rumors, in circulation,"  is one of hopeful* expectancy.    ' j    ."  The Rambler-Cariboo has just made a  <*5d-ton shipment of ore.   " .      ,     _ _  ,    '-  A rush of water has caused a suspension  of 'work at the Surprise.

He served in the  Northwest Mounted Police, and tendered  liis scrviei-s to colonel Herchnier, commissioner of police, as soon as a second contingent was decided on. He has been instructed to get a medical certificate that  he is "physical fit," and to hold himself in  readiness for active service. Lieutenant  Beer has received applications from forty  Xelson men and'from a number in addition resident in outside points; but up to  tho present time has received no instrue- '  tions from headquarters*.

Important Statement by E. C. Clute.*
I'os.sliuid Miner -i'lh December.
" Editor Miner:    I  am  asked   to  give
my A'icws on the conditions as they affect
mining interests in Southern British Columbia.  This, it will readily be seen, I am
not at liberty to do, even if I had formed
opinions.     1 may, however, take this opportunity to thank the owners and tlieir
representati\res  and   tho  officers of   the
variousMiners' Unions [or their assistance
so cheerfully rendered, which has greatly
facilitated my Avork, and 1   am  also glad
to learn of  the  cordial  relations  Avhich
exist between   the  owners and the men,
notwithstanding their  different views in
relation to Avages which exist in some of
the camps.    I   am  especially  pleased  to
find that all recognize the  sacredncss  of
person, property and individual rights as
they exist uuder British law.    This is  a
matter vital to the  well-being  of every
man, whether he be owner or Avorkman,
within the mining districts  of Southern
British Columbia.    In   my judgment the
recognition of these rights is an  absolute
necessity to ensure the future prosperity
and well-being of tihis community ;  that
the law cannot and AA'ill not tolerate any
interference with these  rights ;  and it is
a great satisfaction to me to feel, after a
somewhat   intimate acquaintance   with
the men representing the different interests here that the  first principles of our
institutions are fully recognized, and that
there is a settled conviction in the minds
of all that  they  sh.all  not be violated.
With these principles Avell  fixed aud recognized it does not require an   optimist
to forecast the  future of the niining interests of Southern British Columbia.     I
A'enture to think  they  are assured, and
can only be imperilled by a forgetfulness
that might entail disaster for a time upon
all concerned.
" I desire especially to commend the
earnest effort put forward by the Sandon
Union and the A'arious mine owners in
the Slocan district to reach an adjustment of the differences there existing,
Avhich I trust Avill be crowned with
" Concluding my work in this part of
the province, 1 bear away Avith me a confident belief in its future development
aud prosperity, and extend to those aa'Iio
haA'e so cordially assisted me my sincere
It] C. Cluti., Commissioner."
Pire at Athabasca Mine.
A serious fire occurred at the Athabasca mine on Christmas day, Avhen tho
building known as tlie old bunk house
was completely destroyed. The origin of
the blaze is unknown, but it is supposed
to have resulted from the careless handling of a miner's candle. The contents,
including a quantity of miners' effects,
Avere largely vemo\*ed in safety, but
several of the men lost A'alnables. All
efforts to save the building Avere unavailing.

The negro  replied : "We're going to take up the  white man's burden, I suppose."  Dr. Frankland always wore spectacles.  One day on Ludgatellill a porter passing  him was nearly pushed oft' the pavement  by an unintentional motion of the doe-  tor. The fellow, with characteristic insolence, exclaimed: "Damn your spectacles!" Frankland, smiling, observed : "It  is not the first time they have saved my  eyes."  A day or so after sir Lawrence Alma-  Tadenia, It.

A young minister who did not scruple  to fish for compliments, was^once invited  to take dinner with a douce old elder, as  reticent as they make them. Manipulate  the conversation as he would, the young  man could not get his host to say  "sermon," and at last he boldly introduced the important subject by remarking dii'Qctly, "That -was a fine text 1 had  today."

December 20th, 1899. JOHN HOUSTON'.  the  THE   MAYORALTY   CONTEST.  To  THE  Er.KCTORS  OF NELSON :  In asking for your support for tlie  office of mayor at the coming election, it  is only fair that I should state my views,  briefl3r, on what are considered public  questions or issues. No doubt, during  tlie campaign you will have an opportunity to hear these questions and issues  discussed, for tliey are important to tho  people of this municipality.  1. The public utilities owned by the city  should be maintained at a high state of  efficiency, and the revenue therefrom  collected closely and promptly. The rates  should be so adjusted that a fair prolifc  over and above fixed charges can be  realized, for the city can no more sell  water and light at cost than can the  merchant the commodities in which lie  deals.  2. Direct taxation can only be kept  low by limiting the issue of debentures.  No debentures should be issued except  for the construction of revenue-producing public works.  3. A beginning should be made this  year at making permanent street improvements. The main business streets should  be macadamized and the main residence  streets graded. .Sidewalks should be laid  with some uniformity, and not according  to the different ideas of different officials.  4. The steamboat interests centered at  Nelson are second only in importance to  the railway interests, and the city should  provide modern dock aud warehouse facilities at which this business can be handled. The docks and warehouses should  be built ou plans approved by practical  steamboat men, as the future growth and  prosperity of the city depend, in a great  measure, on the cost of transhipment of  merchandise.  5. I am opposed to saloon expansion.  There are already a sufficient number of  places iu Nelson at which liquor can be  obtained at retail, and the number should  not be increased until the city has a population of ten thousand.  (5. Public gambling is looked upon as  an evil in civilized countries, and whilst  gambling cannot be prevented, there is  no good reason why the sound of gambling machinery should equal that from  the team traffic on our main business,  thoroughfares.  7. None but general *bylaws should be  passed, and when pasbod they should be  enforced.       ���  * S. Corporations tha't liave secured  franchises from the,eity should be made  to live up to the letter and the spirit of  their agreements; but in . adjusting  differences that may arise tliere should  not bo any unnecessary friction.  0. The jire department should be eili-  ciently maintained. "The best apparatus  should he procured, and the number of  men in the volunteer brigade kept at tlie  maximum, for without men, mere apparatus would be useless in times of  danger. John noes. ton.

Briefly stated, my platform is as follows .  If elected it Avill bo ray earnest endeavor to assist in more (irmly establishing Nelson as the wholesale distributing  centre of the Kootenay country���the  position for wliich she has been so admirably designed by nature.  in furtherance of this idea, I will continue my consistent advocacy of tlie construction of a wharf which will meet  present and future requirements ofthe  wholesale and other business interests.  1 believe that the city has reached that  stage when permanent street improvements have become an absolute necessity  and that the cost should be met, as far as  feasible, from current revenue and should  the citizens see fit to entrust me with the  office of mayor, it will be my aim to  carry out a well-devised system of street  improvements.  It will be my policy to oppose the borrowing of money unless the same be used  for the increase or establishment of public works producing a revenue to the  taxpayers.  I am opposed to any increase in the  salary of mayor, wliich would necessarily  involve a reduction in salaries now paid  an efficient staff of officials, or an increased burden to the taxpayers.  J {I am strongly in favor of maintaining  the lire,department in a position of thorough efficiency and would advise the  adoption of modern equipments, including a fire alarm system and the purchase  of a chemical engine, which would effect  a reduction iu all fire insurance.  It will be my consistent policy to safeguard the taxpayers against any attempts  on the pait of corporate bodies, carrying  on business iu Nelson, to encroach upon  the rights of the citizens.  In my opinion a sufficient amount of  money should be expended upon the  parks of the city so that they Avill pio-  vide the citizens with recreation grounds  and opportunities for healthful enjoyment.  On all municipal works my policy a. ill  be to employ bona fide residents of Nelson and to maintain the public standard  rate of wages.  1 believe that the public schools in Nelson should be under the control of the  city, and that every effort should be  made to establi.il a high i-chool in our  midst.  Iu concluding I wish to .say that in the  event of my election 1 will consider it  my duty to share jwith the council the  responsibility of the civic administration,  believing, as I do, that the assumption of  entire authority by one individual i. subversive of all constitutional government,  whether municipal or otherwise..

A   LJST   OP   THE   GOODS.  LOCAL NEWS IN BRIEF.  Judging from the looks of the peoplo  oil the streets yesterday, nobody in Nelson went hungry on Christnitis Day, and  nobody ever saw such a Christmas Day  in Nelson.  The electors who are managing candidate Houston's campaign will open committee rooms in the new Turner-Beeton  building, on Josephine. Street, today.  ._ The city officials have received a communication from Hon. P* Carter-Cotton,  chief commissioner of lands and works, in  regard to the city's application for the  foreshore lauds on the lake front. The  nature of the minister's reply has not  been divulged as yet, but the letter will  be read at the council meeting tomorrow.  Tliere are tit present fourteen patients  undergoing treatment at the general  hospital. Sidney Watson, the young  man who was badly hurt at the Granite  mine, is much better, and in a fair way to  recover.  A large number of marksmen attended  the turkey shoot on the flats Christmas  day, and the competition for birds was  keen.  Por the information of politicians, it  can be stated on authority that the  printing of illustrations of churches in  The Tribuxb has no political significance.  George Steele and Dave Porter were so  successful with their Christmas turkey  shoot that they intend to give another on  'isevf Year's Day, provided they can got a  supply of . turkeys. On Christmas Mr.  llanley got four turkeys and Mr. McKeu-  __ic three.
