 an_B  ___���*__!  CHURCHILL RESUMES HIS PEN  I*"***  What the Correspondents Say.  London,  December  28.���The Morning  Post   has   received  the  following   from  Churchill, under date of'December 20th,  telegraphed from Chieveley Camp, where  he litis arrived : "All ranks haA'e complete confidence in sir lied vers. Buller;  and there is a stern determination to  succeed next time at nil costs. A painful  impression avus caused by the announcement of the change of commanders-in-  chief, and the soldiers heie are roaolved  to vindicate their trusted leader.  The situation, nevertheless, is difficult,  the Boer position being one of extraordinary strength willi high hills lined  tier on tier with trenches and galleries,  rising from au almost unfordable river,  and with a smooth plain in front. The  enemy htive all the ranges marked,  and many powerful guns dominate the  A'arious points of the river, Avhile the  drifts aro commanded by converging  musketry fire from probably 12,000 Boers.  There are sixteen miles of Avild, broken  country before reaching Ladysmith,  Avhich demands early relief."  London, December 28.���A special correspondent of the Daily Chronicle, telegraphing from Stcrkstrom, Cape Colony,  Thursday, December 21st, says : "Strong  measures are necessary to check the hostile feeling among the Dutch colonists,  Avhose sedition is shown in the removal  of railway bolts, the obstruction of  budges- and culverts, and attacks upon  solitary horsemen. Disaffection is bound  to increase unless immediate reinforcements are forthcoming. The local Dutch  and British settlers arc becoming alarmingly impatient.''  London, December 27.���The Daily  Chronicle publishes the following from  Cape Toavu : "JLerr Schlinger, an agent of  the New York Equitable Assurance .Society, avIio has arrived here from Pretoria, says the Boer.s possess immense  stores of food imported by speculative  capitalists, under a belief that mining  AA'ould be allowed during the war. He  says also that there Ave re thousands of  spectators at the Pretoria railway station Avhen the British, who Avere captured at Nicholson's Nek, were detrained.

The Filipino loss A\ras  large, resulting from a heavy infantry  and artillery fire for three hours into the  tienchcs. It is supposed that the insurgents Avcro those who were driven out of  San Mateo on the day general Lawton  was killed. Tliey numbered probably a  thousand.  To Build War Ships on the Lakes.  Washington, December 27.���Secretary  Long stated in his recent annual report that negotiations avci-o pending  between the United .States and Gieat  Britain, to overcome tho treaty against  building aa-ju1 ship*, on tho great lakes. It  has transpired that the American members of the joint high commission, put  fonvard a plan of permitting the lake  shipyards to build Avar ships, Avith tho  understanding that the vessels AA'ould not  be fitted up and remain-on the lakes for  naA'al service. This Avas accepted by the  Cauadian officials Avith the additional  provision that tho armor should not be  placed in the an ar ships until after they  had reached salt Avater. This provision  Avould have been incorporated in the final  arrangement, had not the commission  failed of an agreement, because of tho  Alaskan boundary trouble.  LONDON COMMENT ON SITUATION  LITTLE NEWS FROM SEAT OF WAR  so. The British, astonished, returned  the salute."  London, December 2S.���A dispatch to  the Times from Pietermarit/.burg dated  Thursday, December 21&t, says: "A  strong suspicion exists here that the ostensibly innocent bills of lading furnished  by German steamers arriving in Delagoa  Bay really conceal contraband, and the  local nowspapers are urging n\iore rigid  examination of cargoes."       -      _..      .v   .  The Cape Town correspondent of tho  Times under date of Friday, December  22nd says: "Anxiety regarding the attitude of the colonial Dutch is steadily  growing. They make no effort to conceal tlieir sympathy Avith the two republics, and the only question iioav is  whether, if the military situation is  ehai-ged, tliey Avill keep from open rebellion. Even in districts that have not  been visited by thevBoers, in the eastern  part of the province, tho Dutch farmers,  tire riding about armed. This is the case  nlno in districts only fifty miles from  Cape Town AA'here a seditious movement  is busily propagated. The British forces  are inadequate to guard 1000 miles of  communication."  Uncle Sam Lectured on His Duty.  Nkw York, December 27.���The Independent for the current week contains an  article by Jacob C. Schurman, president  of Cornell university, Avho Avas chairman  of the United_States commission to the  l^hHippiiTes-entitled, " Our duty to the  Philippines," in which he says : "I have  urged it upon congress and the president  to set up civil government in the Philippines, just as soon as the military condition Avarrants it. A government, is  what is needed and every province should  have it, so they can learn the meaning of  our promises and intentions; avc must  make an honest civil service,a permanent  institution of the islands, Spain  established the spoils system and tho corruption Avhich has-folioAved from it has  made three centuries of civil misgovern-  ment for the people, and finally resulted  in her own overthroAv.  general Warren's  to have gone to  Pietermaritzburg  Freight Bates Bother New Yorkers.  Nkw Yoiuc, December 27.���As a result of the protest of merchant* against  the classification of merchandise by tlie  railways, and of intervieAvs of members  of the Merchants." Association in this city  Avith trunk line officials, the latter luwo  said that this classification will go into  effect on January 1st, but they have  proved that the matter of a readjustment of classifications, Avhich, it is  claimed by the merchants, Avill hurt their  business, Avill be taken up .again by the  traffic oflicials and executive officers of  the roads, aa-1io aviII sift every grievance  to the bottom and meet the merchants  half Avay in making a proper readjustment.  Insurgents Bob up Again.  Manila, December 27.���Colonel Locket,  Avith a force of 2500, including artillery,  today attacked a strong force of insurgents entrenched in the mountains near  Montalban, about five miles northeast of  San Mateo. The enemy were completely  routed, the Americans pursuing them  through the lulls amid which they iled  Campaign is at a Deadlock.  London, December 28.���4:30 a. m.���Mr,  Winston Churchill's arrival at Chieveley  camp i_T perhaps responsible for some  over-coloring of the gravity of the situation, but all today's news convoys the  impression that geueral Buller may be  intending another attack upon the Boer  position. Certainly the Boers are not  inactive. At both Modder river and the  Tugela they are said to be strengthening  their forces and extending defence works  Avhich in both cases are seemingly impregnable.  As five battalions of  fifth division are said  Natal, his arrival at  seemed natural.  Dispatches from Chieveley indicate j that general Buller':. forces  Avill remobilize at Frere before attempt-,  ing * another., ad van.ee. .-Doubtless .lie  Avould be glad to i efevieve the Coienso reverse before the arrival of lord Roberts ,*  yet lie is hardly likely to attempt another  attack. It is more likely that he is preparing to strike, should the Boers make  any offensive movement. Mr. Churchill's  reference to Ladysmith may imply that  the situation of the garrison is more  desperate than had been supposed. The  Boers continue fortifying the hills commanding the tOAVii. General White, Iioav-  ever, has heliographed that all Avas well  in Ladysmith on December 26th. Competent military critic*, iu London regard  the campaign as at a complete deadlock  for the present, OAving to the dispersal of  the British forces, and hick of adequate  transports. They believe it AA'ill be many  weeks before lord Roberts is able to reorganize and to make an effective move.  London, December 28.���The Boer  trench work is so good that it enables  the enemy to hold a long line Avith very  feAAr men, and to travel great distances  under perfect coA'er so as__rapid]y_to re_-_  inforce any point attacked.  Dispatches from Modder River represent Dutch disaffection in Griqualand  west as growing A'ery serious. In some  towns the entire Dutch population has  joined the Boers. The rebels have formed  a laager at a point about thirty miles*  Avest of Modder River camp. It is also  announced that the BoOrs haA'e raised thp  siege of Kurumanes and haA'e all Avith-  draAvn to Magersfontein.  Protestants May he Legally Married.  WasMinotox, December 27.���General  Otis* has issued a decree authorizing the  celebration of civil marriages in the  Philippines and secretary Root has approved of the act, Heretofore all marriages were celebrated by the Catholic  church, so that Protestants and non-  Chiistians Avoro prohibited from marrying. Tho decree doe*, not interfere Avith  the Catholics, avIio may be married according to their rites, but extends the  privilege of oiA'Il marriage to any avIio may  desire it, just as is practiced iu the  United States.  Successful Skirmish at Tugela.  C..ikvi_u_y Ca.au-*, December 2,>.���Although the tAvo armies Avere in sight of  each other Avith the temperature 102 degrees in the shade, the British today enjoyed characteristic Christmas cheer.  Captains Gleenfell and KirkAvood, of the  .South African Light Horse, left here yesterday to inspect the patrols along the  eastern hills. Their horses returned last  night alone. Colonel Donald of the  Royal Fusileers has had his collar .bone  broken by being thrown from his horse  Avhile on post duty.  Chikvklev Camp, December 20.���The  naval guns began shelling the Boer position at five o'clock this morning, using  lyddite. The shelling continued about  two hours. Ever since the engagement  at Coienso the enemy luwo beeu energetically improA'ing their entrenchments.  They can be seen galloping freely from  hill to hill.  Ladysmith also had a busy morning  today shelling the Boers' position on  UmbulaAA'ana mountain. The bursting  shells Avere plainly A'isible at ChieA'eley.  Chieveley, December 22.���Our scouts  having reported Boers iu force on  this side of the Tugela river, three  regiments of regulars supported by artillery and all the available mounted  volunteers under the command of lord  Dundonaldadvanced. The Boers retiied  across the river. The British captured  five hundred cattle.  Kimberley, December 20.��� At half  past two this morning mounted detach-  meuts, under command of colonel Peak-  man with three maxims and three seven-  pounders under major May reconnoi-  tered. LeaA'iug the entrenchments, the  British adA-anced to Toll Pan. The Boer  pickets fired and our maxims replied, the  Boers disappearing over the ridge. Four  guns then began to shell the Toll Pan at  a range of 2500 yards. A Boer gun  dropped four shells near our men, but did  no damage. As the Boers were strongly  entrenched Ave withdreAV. Their guns  are Avell posted.

A PERIOD IN NELSON'S HISTORY  LOCAL   NEWS   IN   BRIEF.  rifie  dis-  Lieutenaut Beer, of the Nelson  company Avired lieutenant Peters,  triet officer commanding, yesterday to  this effect: "Can supply picked men  galore, some old Boer campaigners. Cannot avg get some men on ?"' The reply  has uot yet' come to hand, but the general impression seems to be that a general call Avill not be issued. Meanwhile  the list of volunteers continues  to grow.,  The Ophir, Garnet and Ruby claims  have been transferred among the former  owners of the group. Michael C. Mona-  ghan and Alex McDonald turn over their  interest in the Ophir to J. B. Baxter, and  the latter transfers his interest in the  Etuby and Garnet claims to Monaghan  and McDonald.  The city has been unsuccessful this  time in disposing of the inuniei_jal debentures for $15,000 upon Avaterworks  and electric light account. Ad\'orti_e-  Tnents calling for tenders for the purchase of the debentures were inserted in  the Eastern and Coast newspaper;., and  although seA-eral communications were  received in reply there Avas not a single  bid for their purchase. Even the chartered banks refrained from putting in  tenders. Some communications -.tnted  that owing to the unsettled state of the  market the Avriters were not warranted  in making a bid, but they asked the city  council to put a price upon the debentures aud they in tutu Avould see what  they could do with their clients in the matter of disposing of them. The unsatisfactory condition of affair*. Avill be con-  -idered at (he meeting of tlto council  today.  The following names are mentioned as  suitable candidates for aldermen : Kast  Ward���J. Laing Stocks, A. It. M. Barrow,  W. W. Beer, John A. Irving, W.J. Wilson, Hamilton Byers, .J. F. A Voir, and J.  IL Matheson. West Ward���-Alderman  McKillop, alderman Kirkpatrick, William  Irvine, John Hamilton, Thomas Madden,  Ii. M. Macdonald, and T. J. .Sims. .Six  good aldermen could easily be picked  from the list.  Thomas Brown, Avho has spent the past  six years in hunting and prospecting over  the mountains of Kootenay and Vale, has  been accepted by colonel Here-Inner as a  member of the mounted contingent Avhich  the federal government will send to .South  Africa. "Tom" Brown, as he is better  knoAvn by his intimates, was formerly  drill instructor for the Nelson company  of Rocky Mountain Riiles and worked  hard for several days to get a place upon  the second contingent, lie passed a very  creditable medical examination and  leaves' this evening for Calgary where he  -vvill report for duty. Mayor Neelands is,  endeavoring to get up a purse for Nelson's  Trolley Cars Successfully Started.  The tram car system Avas in actual  operation for the first time yesterday.  The cars Avere run quite slowly in order  to aA'oid frightening horses, and on the  hill betAA-een tho car barn and Baker  street .a series of tests Avas made, as a re-  result of Avhich it Avas demonstrated that  the car could be stopped at any point desired ou the grade Avithout reversing the  controller. No tickets Avere sold, but the  conductors Avill be supplied Avith the  various styles of pasteboards today. The  car Ava*. timed on several trips and a  running schedule Avill be arranged at  once.  The   conductors    are    supplied    AA'ith  patent fare boxes  Avhich'grip any coin  inserted in the slot with  a powerful set-  of nippers.    One passenger, a  gentleman  Avell kuown to the, officials of the eoin-_.  -pany, doubted the efficiency of the-gripp-"  ing arrangements and made a test for his  own information.    The only coin he had  -approaching in si/.e a nickel was a newly-  minted $5 gold  piece.     This was  i>laced  (far enough in the slot of the i'are  box to  enable the  teeth to take hold, and  the  gentleman then endeavored to remove it.  To his intense disgust all  efforts in  this  direction proved unaA'tulhig, and he  AVas  compelled to push the gold piece all the  Avay into the box and take a receipt from  , the conductor.    When this was presented at the office the management agreed  to issue tickets to the value of the coin.  A Vexed Question Always.  Washington, December 27.���Attention to the Behring sea controversy between the United .States and Great  Britain has been renewed by the report  of Mr. J. M. Morton, United .States agent  on the seal islands, Avho has come to the  capital to submit his report and confer  AA'ith the authorities. The essential  point of the report is that seal herds  have diminished 20 per cent Avithin the  last year, When the Behring sea negotiations Avere on last year the main contention of the American authorities Avas  that the herds Avere being so diminished  by poaching and pelagic sealing that the  animals Avould become extinct nt an early  dale. Mr. Morton's icport of a diminution of 20 per cent Is* regarded a*- fully  bearing out the contention, and it is  taken also ��s an indication of tlie urgent  need of renewed negotiations fur the prevention of pelagic sealing.  The French Conspiracy Cases.  Paris, December 27.���The public prosecutor concluded his' closing .-pooch tonight before the senate, fitting as a high  court, in the conspiracy cases, Jf(p asked  that an especially j-evoro sentence be  imposed upon .Jules Guerin, the president  of tho anti-Somite league, The president  of the court, M. Fallieres then read the  decision of the high court, liberating  these piisoneis Avhose prosecution was  abandoned yesterday owing to want of  evidence. The piisoners in question then  left the court room, one of tlieir number,  Cailly, shouting, "Long LiA*o the Republic'' and "Down Avitli the Jews," The  court adjourned until tomorrow,  Resurrection of the Panama Canal.  Trenton, New Jersey, December 27.���  The Panama Canal Company of America,  with an authorized capital of ^.'.0,000,000,  avus incorporated here today. Tho object  of the company, as shown by the articles  of incorporation, is to acquire by purchase the ship canal of the Compagnie  NouA'elle dn Canal de Panama and the  railway across the isthmus of Panama,  also to construct, equip and operate said  canal and railway aud tin* various* enterprise.*, connected therewith.  AINSWORTH CAMP IS ACTIVE  Many Mines Will Work Next Year,  The reports from the AiusAvorth district are of an encouraging nature, inasmuch as there is every indication of a  revival of Avorking operations on several  properties.  The Taylor Compressor Company is  now laying pipes into the camp, and it is  generally believed that this fact Avill lead  to the sale of a big group of claims, including the Cioav Fledgling, Krao, Tenderfoot, United and Glengarry. These '  properties were recently bonded to A. R.  Browne of Kaslo, acting for the Manchester smelter, but the deal did not  mature as the grade of ore requires economical treatment and this could not be  had Avith the power then available.  F. W. Coleman of Trail, avIio is managing the Little Phil property, has secured a settlement by Avhich the  mechanics' liens filed against the claim  haA'e beeu Avithdrawn for sixty days, and  tho Avork Avill be recommenced about  January 1st. The men have accepted* 25  per cent of their claims in cash, and security for the balance.  J. McLellan, L. McLellan, A. McLeod,  J. Aicher and W. Hope have taken a  lease on" the Tiger, and are to commence  Avork at once. They have a good showing, as there are two feet of ore in the  face. Assays have boon made of carbonates taken from the* surface, Avhich  ran 10 per cent lead aud 25 ounces in silver per ton. These samples Avere  practically surface dirt, and the Tiger  people count on tlieir ore running 00 per  cent lead and  00 ounces in silver.  On the Tariff property eight men are  running a drift from the Highlander  ground and have run 75 or 80 feet.  The No. 1 -vvill recommence AA'ork about  January 1st, after luiving been shut down  for a couple of weeks on account of water.  Twenty men Avill be employed.  The Fourth of July property is being  Avorked steadily under J. Fitzgerald.  There are some 350 tons of ore on the  dump, aud preparations Avere completed  last Aveek to rawhide the ore doAvn the  hill, the pack train being ou the ground,  but the sudden thaw prevented rawhid-  ing, and the removal of the ore is postponed.  Four men  are at AA'ork on the High- .  lander uuder superintendent S.  Underbill, and the prospect is that the force  will be increased  in the near future.  The Children Have a Christmas Tree.  Tlie Christmas Tree entertainment at  'St. Paul's Presbyterian church last night  'proved fco'be'a'great.success? Soon after  -the hour of opening it Avas impossible to  obtain admission to the church, and se\'-  eral parents avIio AA'ere somewhat late in  arriving had to throAv their gifts over  the heads of the croAvd, The interior of  the church avus' handsomely, decorated  Avith festoons of green, relieved by bright-  bunting.'' The Christmas'tiee was placed  on the platform, aud its unveiling Avas '  the signal for a ehorns of excited remarks from the children. A pleasing  variation to tlie programme avus the presentation of a traveller's toilet case and  a A'oluino of A-erse to F. M. Chadbourne.  superintendent of the school, ' Avhose  capable services during the year went  thus acknowledged. The distribution of  the gifts with Avhich the tree avus loaded'  wound up the evening.  Sir Charles Tupper's Visit.  .Sir Charles Tupper is expected to arrive  in Nelson on Friday from Rossland. lie"  will be met at tlio depot by a deputation  of-prominent citi'/.eusrand Aviil be warmly"  Avelcomed to the city. The mass meeting  takes place at niglit in the opera house,  and a great rally is expected. It is probable that the first two rows of seats in  tiie balcony Avill be reserved for ladies..  A committee Avill have charge of the  decoration? at the opera house, and the*-p  will be carried out on a large scale. Conservatives are leqnested to meet this  afternoon at -l:".0 o'clock in Macdonald <&  .lohn-on's office for the purpose of completing the arrangements for sir Charles  Tupper's visit.   Tho North Star Bigger Than Ever,  The recent discowi-y of ore iu the  North Star is most important. The vein  hud already been opened by two shafts  10 feet apart and showed 2(5 feet of ore.  The development placed ^500,000 worth  in fight. The discovery of a body of ore  150 feet down the hill from the Avorkings  opens up possibilities in the mine not  thought of befoie. The chute, instead of  being proved 10 feet long, is now proved  150 feet long.  Rich Ore From the  Boundary.  "The carload of ore Avhich avus shipped  from the Gold Bug, one of the properties of the Boundary Creek Mining &  Milling Company, has arrived at the  Trail smelter. It is expected that the  ore in this shipment Avill run $140 to .$150  per ton. This Avill be richer than the  last shipment, which Avent $111 to the  ton.

By the time Great  Britain gets  through   enlisting   fox   hunters,  clerks,  aristocrats and Avorkingmen indiscriminately, the-continental powers may have  -very* definite   reason   to   efiange   their  minds.     These continental powers Avill'  neve'r; understand Iioav  the Anglo-Saxon  fights.    Their idea of a military power is-  one   that   possesses   a    great   standing  army, recruited by compulsory  conscription.   The idea 4s repulsive to the English race, Avhether ih Europe or America.  It is  lighting  that makes   soldiers, itud  when there is fighting to be done" tliere is  no lack 'of  raw material, either in England, .Scotland, Ireland, Canada or Australia."   The number of volunteers ready  to face  the   very  considerable- risk   of  death   in  its  most   unpleasant  form  is  fairly good evidence that it is a little too  soon to call the British Empire a third-  class poAver.     '  The Miner has in the past almost  always hapx>ened to be wrong. In its  attitude towards public questions it has  never been able to either enlist the  sympathy or command the respect of the  general body of ^Nelson's citizens. It is  just possible that, in ascribing unworthy  motives in the present aud past public  actions of ono of the candidates for tiie  oflice of mayor, it i.s as much in the Avrong  noAV as it ever was. The only thing Averse,  than not fighting at all is not lighting  fair.  From May 1st, 1S99, to December 23rd,  1S99, the Nelson district has produced  $198,590 Avorth of gold bullion. This  output does not lend itself to comparison  Avith previous years, because the gold  bullion output of the Nelson dis-triet  prior- to the 1st of May, l.S..'), was too  small to count. The quartz mines of this  district have no past but they liave a  future. Tlie production of West Kootenay is only beginning.

There  has been  no end of advice to  be "good"   and everything  Avould adjust  itself, but there have been no results from  such advice���society is getting more distorted than  ever.    It is  useless to tell a  man not to adulterate his goods Avhen his  competitor  is doing  it.    He must either  do it or lose his trade and thus lose his  bread and butter.    It is useless to tell a  man not to steal Avhen ho is starving, out  of Avork  and no  money���conditions Avill  compel  him to steal, or  rob, or lie.    Ho  . cannot be good except he  perish.    It is  useless to ask the ministers to preach the  communiHii of Christ and the disciples,  "when  to do so  Avill  be  to haA'e  all  the  monied people stop their pew rents, and  at the  next meeting  of the trustees, fire  him  out  of   the  pulpit and leave   him  stranded on the cold charity of the world.

It is useless to appeal to men not  to bribe legislators and  judges, Avhen if  they do not others Avill, and they wil Ibe  left in the race of wealth aud be brought  to  poverty.    What is needed   is action.

Then it  AA'ill profit none to adulterate  the goods  they are employed on, then from necessity no man need steal, then men can teach  the truth and conflict with no private interests, then there Avill  be no private interests to serve in the bribing of legislators and  judges.

Twenty-five years ago, one of the best  known speculators on the Pacific Coa.st  was James R. Keene of San Francisco.  He was looked on as one of the luckiest  of men that bought and sold shares in  tho great Comstock miiies, shares that  fluctuated from $1 to $.100 a share daily.  When the market for Comstock shares  came to an end through the exhaustion  of theory bodies in the leading mines,  Mr. Keene left San Francisco and took  up his residence in New York. For a  time his Arentures on Wall street were  successful; but one year, shortly after  removing to New York, ho took a flyer in  wheat at Chicago and came to grief. For  a long time afterwards he Avas not cou-  considered a factor on the "street." But  of late years he has got a footing, and  from the following it appears that he is  once more a Avealthy man :  Nkw York, December 21.���While Wall  street speculators bewailed the losses yesterday by the shrinkage in the A'alue of  the stocks they held, every one of them  agreed that the two biggest"winners Avere:  .Tumes.R. Keene * *.���.*��� ..82.50U.IHI0  _>!r.s. James ! t. Keene * *. **i * * ��� ��� S2,."i00,OUO  Mr. Keene avou the Avhole $5,000,000.  Wall street may get one-half of it back if  the Avise operators in that end of the  town catch him "napping" some day.  Hut Wall street Avill never get the other  half, because Mrs. Keene doesn't play  stocks except in a manner unknown to|  Wall street." She is a sort of partner of  Mr. Keene .jnall his venture.*.. She isn't  a full partner, because she never shares  the. losses of the .firm. ��� But qnc-lialiLof  'Mr. Keene's Avhuiiugs in hers tokoep forever by virtue'of an agreement' made between them years ago.'  ft has been faithfully kept, aud Mr.-..  Keene, by reason of the shrewdness of  her husband, is $2,!.00,000 richer than she  Avas a 1'oav months ago.  ' KUKNK GkNBHAI.J.Y A BfiAU.  Jlr. Keene has generally been a bear  since he first came to Wall street sixteen  years ago and was- "trimnied"���as they  professionally put it���-by .lay Gould.  His losses by reason of that "trimming"  fi.ri)fc.hed the financiers Avith a rich morsel of gossip for several months. They  Avonderecl if he would "make good"���  Avhich is professional for paying one's  debts.

C, and  Dawson City, Yul^oq District.  lb was at that time he made hi�� agreement Avith Mrs. Keene. Wall street has  known him as a small, quiet and dark  man, who was busy, alert, inconspicuous  and pessimistic.  When the stock market closed Monday  night the experts arose from the .wreck  that Mr. Keene had helped to bring  about, and figured that he liad made  $5,000,000. They learned only last night  at the Waldorf that Mrs. Keene i.s in sole  enjoyment of $2,500,000 of it.  Noav Worth $20,000,000.  Mr. Keene is noAAr believed to bo Avorth  $20,000,000. He sat. in Dehnonico's one  night a couple of months ago and admitted to having $15,000,000. "I've got all  the money I want," lie said, "and I think  I'll quit the street. I think I'll split my  money in three parts, one for Mrs. Keene,  one for 'Foxy' and the third for my  daughter. I av.11 keep enough to give me  $10,000 a year. ���-That will be enough."  One of the gentlemen at the table expressed the opinion that Mr. Keene Avould  not retire, and could not live on $10,000 a  year if he did.  "Ah, yes, I can," he said, "I'll earn a  few more dollars for myself and get out."  It is Only a Holiday Cruise.  Washington, December 27.���The German war ships Nixe and Von Moltke, used as training ships for naval cadets,  haAre arrived at Havana, after a cruise  through West Indian waters. It Avas  the arrival of these ships in Haytian  waters about ten days ago that caused  consternation among the oflicials aud the  people there, as it Avas feared there AA'ould  be a repetition of the Luders incident  and auother demand in Hayti backed up  by the.German.naval guns. It appears,  however, that the visit ofthe warships  was entirely devoid of significance.  A. R. Sherwood  ANNOUNCEMENT.

To the Electors of Nelson :  In asking for your support for the  office of mayor at the coming election, it  is only fair that I should state my views,  briefly,�� on what are considered public  questions or issues. No doubt, during  the campaign you will have an opportunity to hear these questions and issues  discussed, for they 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 profit  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 he  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 belaid  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 and warehouse facilities at which this business can be handled. The docks and warehouses should  be built on 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.  0. Public gambling is looked upon as  au evil in civilized countries, and whilst  gambling cannot be prevented, tliere 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 passed they should be  enforced. ���"" *  8. Corporations that* have secured  franchises from the city should-be made  -to live up-to-the letter and- the -spirit-pi:  their agicements; but. in adjusting  differences that may arise there should  not beany unnecessary friction.    -.  9. The fire department should be efficiently maintained. The best apparatus-  should be procured, aud tho number, of  men in the volunteer brigade kept at the  maximum, for without men, mere apparatus would be useless in times of  danger. ��� ' John Houston.   *  FULL LINE OF  MAYORALTY CONTEST.

Dated Nelson, Doccn-lwr lut, ISUit.   . -.*.*������"���������  To the Citizens of Nklsox :  In response to numerous requests from  business men, property owners and ratepayers, I offer myself as a candidate i'or  Mayor of the City of Nelson at tlie approaching Municipal Elections.  Briefly stated, my platform is as follows.  If elected ifc will be my earnest endeavor to assist in'more firmly establishing Nelson as tlie wholesale distributing  centre of the Kootenay country���the  position for which she has been so admit-  ably designed by nature.  In furtherance of this idea, I will continue my consistent advocacy of the construction of a wliarf which will meet  present and future requirements of the  wholesale and other business interests.  I believe that tlie 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 fib to entrust me with the  office of mayor, ib 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 iu the  salary of mayor, which would necessarily  involve a reduction in salaries now paid  an efficient staff of officials, or'.'.an increased burden to the taxpayers.  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 in all fire insurance.  It will be my consistent policy to safeguard the taxpayers against any attempts  on the part of corporate bodies, carrying  on business in Nelson, to encroach upon  the rights of the,citizens.  In ray opinion a,sufficient amount of  mo hey ��� should be expended upon ,the  parks of the city so that they will provide the citizens with recreation grounds  and opportunities for healthful enjoyment.  On all 'municipal works my policy will  be to employ bona fide residents of Nelson and to maintain the public standard  rate of wages.  I believe that the public schools in Nelson should be under the control of the  city, and that every effort should be  made to establish a iiigii school in our  midst". ��� _-'>���.  In concluding I wish to say"that in the  event of\ my election I will consider it  my duty, to share"'with * the- council the  responsibility of the civic administration,  believing, as I do, that the assumption of  entire authority by one individual i.s subversive of all constitutional government,  whether municipal' oi. otherwise.
