'  A. F. Proctor, the C. P. It. engineer who built the Balfour extension, left Sunday for Abbotsford  on the Mission Junction branch of-  tlie main line. A day or so ago the  engineering outfit used on the Bal-  ToTiT==extension'=and=intetided==to=  serve a crew of 22 men was shipped  to the same point.] No announces  ment has been made as to the  C. P. R.'s object in putting this  locatioa party into the country in  the depth of winter, but it is believed that tlio management has  decided to head off the Victoria,  Vancouver & Eastern" road for  which the Mackenzie-Mann* people  hold a charter. It is thought likely  that the location party will run a  line southeast from a point on the  Mission Junction road through the  Hope mountains to connect with  the Boundary road.  The Columbia Bridge.  Despite the cold weather, which  makes open air labor somewhat unpleasant, the work on the Columbia  river bridge' at Robson is progressing satisfactorily. The Gunn outfit  has got down to business in good  style, and the east abutment is now  eight feet high. Yesterday the  piles for the east pier, were driven  and the tops cut off to construct  the caisson in which the foundation'  will be built. The bottom of the'  river proves to be fine gravel, re-'  sembling hard pan, into which the'  fSilgs'are driven from 12 to 15 feet.;  McVeigh '& Poiipare are making  good progress with their work on  the approaches and will probably  finish the contract in a week or  'two. Some delay has been experienced in procuring the exact'  sized timbers required for the:  stringers.  , I  Moving the Ticket Office.  The -officials of JXie C. P. R, promise to be doing business in the  new passeuger depot this morning,  and if? is expected that tho staff  offices on the second iloor of the  building will be occupied within a  few days. The employees of the  road will hail with pleasure the  passing of the old station building  which has come to be much too  small for the requirements of the  offices it shelters. As the old-  timers pack ' up their books and  papers, preparatory to moving, a  choice collection of stories relating  to . the building is related. The  story of how a couple of employees  were "stuck up" at the point of a  gun in the hands of a nervy highwayman and compelled to open the  company's safe has been told and  retold, together with the narration  of the interesting incidents which  transpired in the construction days  when the rough and ready railroaders were migrating: to the  Crow's Nest and C. & W. work. It  is even whispered that trainmaster  Hamilton has on several occasions  wiped a furtive tear from his eye as  he cogitated over the days of yore  and the long string of successful  trainmen who have,graduated from  tho records of the old office. to  positions of responsibility and trust  on the C.

The motioi*L. by aldermen ..Wilson  ;;and MorrisdB to adopt the report  was unanimously carried.  Aldermen Wilson and Morrison  then moved that the city clerk be  authorized to call for applications  for chief of the'fire brigade," sue li  applications to be in the hands of  tlie cle��k not later than noon on  February 4 th.. Thil-* was also  carried.  The only other matter outside of  routine business to be discussed  was the application for a franchise  for the Electric Despatch and Messenger Company, Limited. To expedite the consideration of the subject a bylaw was presented for the  approval of the council and the  ratification of the ratepayers. The  bylaw's principal features were regarding the erection of poles subject to the direction of the  council, the poles tof be, thirty feet  high above street"'grade,, neatly  dressed and painted as directed by  the city and the requirement  that work should be started  on the installation of" the servicce  not later than two months after a  date to be specified by the council  and tg be completed,, within six  months'of the date so specified. *In  other particulars the city's interests  were properly safe-guarded. The  bylaw was given two readings ancL  the council resolved to submit the  measure to the ratepayers at the  municipal election on the 17th  instant, the company to bear all  expense in connection with the  submission. S. S. --Taylor*!1 Q. C,  appeared on behalf of the applicants for the franchise.  Bylaw No. 77, relating to the  public morals, Avas finally reconsidered and passed, concluding the  docket of business.  The members in attendance  were mayor Houston, aldermen  Wilson, Morrison aud Arthur.

At a specially called meeting of the  city council that body today unanimously adopted a concurrent resolution offering a reward .of $25,000  for the apprehension and conviction  of the desperadoes who abducted  Edward Cudahy on the night of  December 18 tli. For the arrest  and conviction of one the resolution provides a reward of $8000; for  two, $15,000 will be .paid, and the  whole amount .is offered for tlie  three principals.-  The council .also askod Mr,  Cudahy to withdraw his offer of a  reward of an equal amount for tho  capture of the criminals. The object of the offer, is largely to relieve  Mr. Cudahy arid his family of fear  of reprisals from the bandits and to  remove from the police and detec-  tives,the restraint they have felt in  trailing the bandits on account of  the very trying ^position- in which  Mr. Cudahy has-been placed.. Tlie  action of the Council is' generally  commended by'the citizens of the  city. ''     y I  Indian Raids.

TlieTiockcy, curling, and skating  season was inaugurated last night  when the rink opened with a large  attendance and fine ice, The skaters turned out in full force and  went in for the pastime vigorously.  A hiiral__t'*;of the hockey players  were present and put in a couple of  iidUrs"' loosening up the muscles  which have.not been used for a  year. On the* south side of the  rink a lively game of curling, the  first of the season, took place. The  curlers were principal Soady, Alex  Grant, J. F. Weir aud J. H. Wallace, skip, on one side, while their  opponents were B. Whalley, P. E.  Wilson, Dr. Hall and judge Forin,  skip. Tlie players were enthusiast*?,  and the, quality of the game indicated that their hands had not lost  all the cunning gained the preceding season. Today the curlers will  hold the floor again and some lively  contestsjare anticipated.  In thi'evening the hockey club  ���met down town. The agreement  made'by the committee with the  tramway people regarding the use  of the. ice was presented and approved, the members agreeing that  the terms were reasonable. The  first practice of the. season will be  held tomorrow night and on Friday  evening two local sevens captained  respectively by Barney Archibald  and Joe Thompson will play a game.  Skating as usual will |*.e available  after the game. The clrib will have  practices, oii Monday, Wednesday  and Friday nights each week and  will arrange for a game each week.  Whenever possible outside teams  will be secured for the weekly game  and failing in this local teams will  be played, abundant material being  available   for   two  lively   teams.  Among the players who will go in  for the game this year are Perrier,  Thompson, Wetmore, Greenlee,  Charlie Jeffs, Rutherford, Neelands  and Bell of last year's clubs, Blackwood, who will get into the game  again, and Murray and Neece, both  of whom are new men. ���  The question of forming a league  is still open, but the Nelson club  will probably go in for a league if  the other clubs interested manifest  any special enthusiasm . in the  matter.  , Have Always Been Fairly Treated.  For the information of the Nelsou Evening Miner it can be said  with authority that the officials in  the city hall are not paid to prepare data for use in its columns, no  more than for "use in the columns  of any other newspaper. Data has  been prepared in the city offices at  the request of officials of sister  cities and secretaries of boards of  trade, but for no one else. The  Miner has always been fairly treated by the city clerk and* the city  engineer, but the officials cannot  well act as reporters for that paper  and attendjto their official duties at  the samo time.

NEW BANK OF COMMERCE  OPENS FOR BUSINESS IN NELSON  ON THURSDAY.  Bank of British Columbia an Institution  of the Past���Consolidation of  Immense Interests.  On Thursday forenoon at 10  o'clock the Canadian'Banlr of Commerce will begin doing business at  the southwest corner of Baker and  Stanley in this town. This announcement will be received with  regret by men who have transacted  business with the Bank of British  Columbia' since it opened in Nelson,  in the spring of 1S92, for the Canadian Bank of Com/uerce takes the  placo of the Bank of Brit^h Columbia. The change will also be regretted by thousands of people  throughout the,Pacific coast, who  looked upon the Bank of British  jColurabiiwas^one^oOhe^fiiianciaLiiu^  stitutions that gave this province  arid the coast an individuality; an  individuality much the same as the  Bank of California has given San  Francisco and California. The regret is that of men who have lost  an old and tried friend, but it is  tempered in its effect by the knowledge that the bank that replaces it  is one^ of Canada's great financial  enterprises that is ably and wisely  conducted.      **"  The Bank of British Columbia  had six branches on the Pacific  Coast and four in the interior of<  British Columbia, with its head  office*-in London, England. The  Canadian Bank of Commerce, with  head office in Toronto, Ontario, has  fifty-five branches in Canada, including those "at Dawson, White  Horse and Atlin, and branches in  the United State3 at New York,  New Orleans, Skagway and Seattle.  The whole of these ^sixty-nine  branches and the office in London  will henceforth be carried on by the  Canadian Bank of Commerce, the'  general management being centered  at Toronto. The capital of the  Bank of British Columbia was  ��000,000 ($2,920,000); *that o����fhe  Canadian Bank\&.of Commerce,  $6,0Q<),000. The capital of theebank  after amalgamation is increased to  $8,000,000, with a rest or surplus  fund of $2,000,000. The resources  of. the bank from capital, rest, deposits and circulation will exceed  $55,000,000. ._t.  The amalgamation will not affect  in the slightest degree the relations  of the bank and its officers with the  customers and correspondents of  the Bank of British Columbia, except by placing-* at their disposal,  the services and support o��" a mucli.  larger institution. All arrange-"  ments"with customers will continue  in force, and all outstanding obligations of, and drafts, cheques.and  credits upon, the Bank of British  Columbia, will be duly honored and  YAN.OPVE.rS COBDIAL WELCOME  _. r  To the Twelve Returning Members of the South African  Contingent Yesterday.

The publication of a morning riews-  paper in a town the size of Nelson  means an expenditure of money  that few have any idea of, and tho  expenditures are seldom equaled  by the receipts obtained in a legitimate way; but the ow,rie^s .of Tup-  Tribune can say, with" pardonable  pride, that not a dollar has ever  been received that was not from  legitimate business, such -as advertising, job printing, and subscriptions. No money has ever been  paid Tub Tribune for a line of  reading matter that has appeared  in its columns. The Tribune has  not riiude money, but it has made a  reputation for honesty of purpose.  Its ffiendsoare the men who helped  make Ko_teney what,*tt is, and tho  men who were its friendiT the first  dxy it was published are its friends  today. TnE Tribune can be depended on at all times to fight for  Nelson's commercial supremacy and  Kootenay's greatness, and no line  will over appear in its columns that  will make its friends or readers  ashamed of British Columbia or of  Canada.   Spokane   has   a   population   of  ' 40,000.    Nelson has a population of  7000.   Last year Spokane's revenue  ��� from  water  rates, licences, police  court fines, and all other sources  except real estate taxes was $230,-  ' 000.    Last   year   Nelson's revenue  from all sources except real estate  .taxes   was $60,000.    Spokane   collected    $112,000   as   water   rates.  Nelson collected  $14,500 from the  "same source,  whicli  goes to show  that Nelson's water rates are not as  high as those of Spo"kane.    But it ���  is     the   comparison     of   indirect  revenue received per capita that is  worth looking  iuto.    Spokane  re-.  ��� r'eived .$5.75j***_r head of population.  Nelson received $8.00.   Spokane is  pretty   deejply   in debt, the total  ��� being $2,400,000, or- $00.-per head.  Nelson's debfr totals $251 jOOO, whicli  'is $36 a head.    Spokane has a high  rate of real estate taxation and Ne|-  son has a low rate. Spokane has a  mayor and board of aldermen; so  has Nelson. .Spokane is worried as  to how it can best.bear its burdens,  and i ts chief newspaper, the Spokesman-Review, says editorially that:  if tho facts and tlio trumpet-speaking conditions will notarOuHB tlio heavier taxpayer,*, Iho  case would indcei bo hopeless. The Spokes111n.11-  Iteview docs not (nice ho pessimistic a viow.- It  believes I here ia enough of civic pride and energy in this city to bring about tlio work of reform. But how? 3y tbc election as mayor of a  representative citizen who lias courage and a determination to put things on tlio right track; nnd  I lie election of councilmen to stand by h'm in His  great work of reform. Tho opportunity is here  for the right man ti make an' cndu-rlng record.  But bo must, be elected without trammel, ire  must bo left free to da his whole duty. For the  "sakoofToforriTSifd'thT welfaro of~tti(r~clty, clfi7  '������ens must put asido their social, fraternal and  ���business interests. Jf the. mayor can be controlled  by this lodge or that society, or swayed by mere  parti-Min considerations,ror governed by bis business connections, he will be powerless to perform  bis duty.  Nelson should profit by the experience of its near neighbor. The  electors of, Nelson.should see to it  that tho mayor and aldermen are  pledged to carry out the views of  the majority of the electors. Men  should not be elected to office  merely to voice some fad or grievance. They should be electedl-on  well-defined lines of public policy,  and be held responsible for carrying out such policies to the letter.  This is business, and tha't. is what  the people want.  The year 1001 opens with Nolson  to the front. A company stands  ready to install an up-to-date electric district messenger system aud  service. Alderman Wilson, chairman of the committee on fire, light  and water, and his Colleagues, alderman Morrison and alderman McKillop, say the time has a&ived  for the installation of a fire alarm  system and the substitution^ of a  paid fire department for the present volunteer fire brigade, and to  bring this about at once the city  clerk has been authorized to call  fOr applications for chief of the reorganized department. These are  evidences that Nelson is growing  and will continue to be prosperous.

A DECISION OF IMPORTANCE  ) y       To Miners Generally.   ���  ��� Two judges of tho supreme court  of the province have decided to  allow tho appeal of the defendant  from the judgment in favor of the  .plaintiffs in the suit of Auderson  eb al vs. Godsol. The third judgo  8ittiug_0n the appeal dissented, but  the majority prevails and the defendant succeeds up'to'the''present  time. Tlie award is of the greatest  importance to miners generally as  it will havo the effecb of destroying the usefulness of the mechanics'  lien as applied to mining properties  in the large proportion of instances.  The action of Anderson et al vs.  Godsol arose over work performed  on the Little Phil mine in the Ainsworth camp. The property was  bonded by the owner, Fred W.  Godsol of Pincher Creek, and a  large owner in the Nettie L. mine  in the Lardo country, to T. W.  Coleman of Trail, who put a crew  "of men afc work.. The men were  'not paid and brought suit, seeking  to make the property liable, which  would-involve the title of Godsol,  the owner, although not the employer of the miners. Godsol ...contended^ vthat the word '.'owner" in  the Mechanics' Lien Act meant any  person having any interest whatever in the-jland, and consequently  did not extend beyond the interest  of any person who had directly or  indirectly hired the men. This  contentio^'-iaving been upheld, the  effect is, briefly, that hereafter any  person giving a bond, lease or option runs no risk of having liens  against his property by men who  have done work for the bondholder,  lessee or holder of the option.  In March last his honor judge  Forin gave a verdict for the men,  and' the decision .was appealed to  the supreme court of British Col-'.  nmbia. "When the case was first  argued the judges Avere divided,  two. holding for each side. The  case was ordered to be reargued  and on this occasion the majority  was secured for the .appellant, Mr.  justice Walkem being in Rossland  when tho case came up for a final  lien ring. Originally P. E. Wilson  and W. A. Macdonald appeared for  tho plaintiffs and G. A. Whealler of  Knslo for the defence. In the argument at the coast Duff. Q. C,  appeared for tho plaintiffs and  Davis. Q. C, for tho defence.  Tn Andersen vs. Godsol fie interests of eleven plaintiffs Avere  consolidated and there are nineteen  other cases which are waiting on  tho outcome of the initial action.  Should an appeal taken t > tl e  supreme court of Canada fail to  alter the situation ib will be necessary for the legislature to ameud  section seven of tho Mineral Act  to extend to miners the protection  intended.  Following are the judgments of  the two judges who ruled for the  appeal :  Chief justice McColl says: The  defendant, a mine owner, gave to  one Coleman an option to buy it  for $25,000. lie was to be at liberty to work it and if he did so the  net proceeds were to be applied in  or towards payment of the price.  Ho agreed if he worked it to keep at  least teu men constantly employed.  No other .provision avus made for  the working of the mine. The  .plaintiffs are laborers and claim  lions for work' done in the mine  while employed by 'Coleman in  A\rorking it under the agreement.  He-did not exercise his option.*  Tt is not clear upon the notes of  the evidence whether the Avork was  stoping or Avas development work"  bub assuming that it was of such a  kind as to have been Avithin the  act, yefc in my judgment none of  the claimants is entitled to the lieu-  claimed. It is admitted that-none  of them worked at tlie express request of the owner, and that no request by him can be implied in the'  circumstances. Section 1, there:  fore, .does nptTapply.'_ is contended that the'claimantsare with'-,  in section 7. To entitle th_m to  succeed" under this section it is  necessary to construe the words  '���'at tho instance" to mean- "at the  request" and to apply "them to tho  persons doing the work instead of  to the work itself. And even this  is insufficient without extending  the'words of the section to the. case  of work actually done at the instance of the owner and so Aviping  out the provision in section _.  But this would be to make the  benefit of a so called lien wholly  illusory, for the owner in order to  j-*s^pe_jdtogethj-*r from the act  woulcToiily-have lTatl^to^ivo^ther  notice provided for.  Section 7 does not in terms apply,  to, nor in my opinion was it intended to done at the  instance of the owner already pro--'  . vided for by section .4. I know of  no 'principle by which an enactment that a certain thing is to be  held or deemed to be the act of a  person, only let to bo construed to  apply to tho person Avhose act it in  fact is, nor is it easy to understand  why a lien claimant not haying  worked at the request of a supposed  owner should bo in a better position  than if the work had been done at  the instance of the,owner himself.  It seems to me plain that section  7 not only applies where the owner  has not authorized the construction  of the building or other improvement, but was intended to provide  for the case of work done under an  agreement with a supposed owner  aud to place persons engaged in  such work in the like position as  regards a lien as if such person was  the actual owner whenever the  latter, knowing that an improvement was being made upon his land  not under any agreement with himself, but at the instance of some  person assuming to act as owner,  stands by saying nothing. I have  not thought ifc necessary to discuss  the case of Cook who admittedly  cannot recover.  Mr. justice Drake rules for the  appeal in these terms : The defendant is the owner of a mining  claim known as the Little Phil  mineral claim. On the 1st of June,  1809, he entered into an agreement  Avith Thomas W. Coleman to sell  the claim on certain conditions.  Coleman had leave to enter and  extract ore, and keep at least ten  men constantly employed, and the  net value of the ore was to be paid  into the defendant's account to go  against the purchase money; but it  , was optional with Coleman whether  he would complete the purchase or  not.    Coleman worked the mine for  some"time and then threwV-ifc. up,  leaAring several workmen unpaid,  who thereupon filed liens against  the mine.   The question is whether  under   the    construction.   of    the  Mechanics'  Lien; Act G odsol's pro-,  j per fcy is liable for the liens.  "*���   First, I will consider who is entitled to a lien.   Every contractor,  sub-contractor   or   laborer,   doing  Avork inter alia in connection with  excavating, filling or grading any"  laud in respect inter alia of-a'mine  at the request* of the owner Of such  land shall have a lien:for the- price  of such work upon'the buildings,  -and the land and premises-occupied  thereby, subject to the proviso-that  such lien shall affect only  such interest in the said land as was vested  in tho owner at the time the contract   Avas   made, or -any- greater  interest which   the   owner   might  acquire during the progress of tlie  Avorks.  Tlie governing sentence here i.  the request of the  owner.    Work  done   without -such  request   does  not give .a lien.   We then  turn to  the   description   of  owner  in   its  primary meaning.     It means the  person in Avhom the property on  Avhich the Avork was done is vested,"  but the act extends the meaning to  include a person having  or interest, legal or equitable, in  the lands upon Avhich the work has  been done, or on whose behalf, or  with whose privity or consent, or  for whose direct benefit any such  work   is   done.     Apply  this  definition to the fact here.   Coleman  had au equitable estate in this land  at the time this A\-ork was done.   It  was for his benefit aud at hisre-  quesb the work was done.   The. request of Coleman to the workmen  was not the request of Godsol, and  the court; has to be satisfied that  Godsol either directly or indirectly  contracted with .the lien", holders.  [See Phillips on Liens, section 07.]  The act is one whichmust be construed according to' the language  used, and   not   extended to cases  which are not within the scope.of  the   language.   The' act specially-  provides for works done on mortgaged premises, and gives a formula  for ascertaining to what appreciated value the liens are-to attach.  But   even here the assent of   the  mortgagee in writing must havebeen  given; but there are other cases not  provided for.  Then we come to section 7. That  section makes the owner, or his  agent, or the person having any  _'righ.tinjbhe, land,_liable;for Hens  unless he gives''notice . of non-  l'-sponsibiliby. To construe this  section as meaning that the oAvner  could avoid the act altogether by  giying notice, would render the act  void. To construe it so that under  any circumstances the work will be  held to -be done at the instance of  the owner whether he requested it  or not conflicts with section 4. I  think the meaning of the section is those cases where when  improvements are done upon land  by mistake the owner stands by in  order to take advantage of the  work done. In.sueh eases the work  shall be held to be constructed at  "tllelnstanee of "tlre-owneT\  Here the legislature draws': a distinction, between the owner aiid his  authorized agent and the person  having or claiming any interest in  the land. Coleman falls into the  latter class. He had an in'eresfc in  this land at the time work was  done. The description of the owner  and the person claiming any interest in the land is in the disjunctive,  thus making, a distinction between  the two classes. This* section read  with the proA'iso in section 4 renders it reasonably clear tliat the interest of Coleman which he had  during the time the Avork Avas going, on washable to the lien, .and  not the interest of the owner who  Avas bound to convey to Coleman  on certain conditions being fulfilled.

TO THE ELECTORS OF JN ELSON:  At the request of a number of electors, I havo  decided to offer my'elf as a candidate for mayor  at the coming civic elections. 1 have served as  aldorman two years of the four during  which the city has been conducting its own affairs, nnd my record while in the council on Uio"  questions that are now the most important issues >  before the people of the city is such as will bear  inspection.  1 believe that the cily has valuable assets in the  water and electric light systems, and while in--  the council I did everything possible to safeguard  these assets; and if elected mayor no actor vote  of ni'iie wl 1 be in favor of allowing any outsido  corporate interest to becomo a competitor-with  l hi city in the business of electric lighting, a  business in which tho city has already invested  $70,000. ^ _.-,..  While in the council in 1897,1 voted in favor.ofr  incorporating a fair wage clause in. all contracts,' >  and that principle was carried out in both letter,  and spirit.  1 see no reason-to chaiiRo my viows  on that question now.   And 1 believe, further,*  that with competent ,rforemen and superintendence that the city can got as good value for the  money spent by having the great bulk of its work  done by day's labor an by the contract system,  and no good reason can be advanced why thu'  city should noLpay the same rate of wages and  work men the same number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises.  I am in favor of giving Ihe buslnes* and prop-.  crfcy interests every -safeguard- possible, and to  that end I believe the fire department should be  made ns efficient as possible, consistent wit li lhe  revenues ot the city. - .��. . /' .  Nelson should be kept in advance-of Its livals,  and everything   possible   must be done to induce manufacturing enterprise? to locite here,  for it i* lhe payrolls that build up the cities of -,  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the  people of Nelson are toleiant. I believe that this  spirit of tolcra'inn should bo continued, and 1  will if elected mayor do no act to abridge or curtail the rights or ptivlleges of ono class of our  cit'/ens merely because anothor class may havo  different views.  Tho ci*y has made a start in permanent, street  improvements, and I am in favor of continuing  these improvements as fast us possible, with duo  regard io the revenues of the city.

Suit was begun yesterday by L.  A. Thurston of Slocan City against  Gabriel L. R. Weyl, who represents  French capital in British Columbia.  MANY ARE ANXIOUS TO JOIN  The plaintiff claims a seventh interest in the Derby and Nelson No.  2 mineral claims in the Rossland  camp, together with a similar interest in about 130 lots in the railway addition to the city. The  property in dispute was purchased  about a month ago at $35,000 cash  and is being taken over by a company now being formed in London,  England, under the name of the  Rossland Proprietory Company.

South-African Constabulary.  If volunteers are called for the  new   South African   constabulary  it is probable. Nelson will be well  represented.    Up to   the   present  time the   militia   department has  not called for applications, although  the British war office has agreed to  accept,1000.Canadians for the new  corps, the reason, for the delay in  opening  the list-being due to the  necessity of further correspondence  with the imperial authorities to establish a thorough understanding.  Five   Nelson   men   have   signified  their desire to join the new force  aiid notified the .local militia officers  to -that effect.   When the militia-  department calls for volunteers it is  probable the. number of applications  will be overwhelmingly large.   The  pay is to be'five shillings ($1.20)  -per   day * with everything in the  shape   of' rations-, and equipment  furnished ���  gratis... This   scale   is  liberal for -soldiering, being more  than four times the pay of an ordinary British soldier, so that there  is not likely to'be any vacancies  go begging.  The Imperial authorities further  offer ten captains'^and fifteen lieutenants' commissions to Canadians,  and the competition for these posts  is safe to be sti IT.' The conditions  are, briefly,".tiiat applicants must  be good shots "ai*jd rifJer**, single and  between .the age$ of 20.and 35 years.  The preference!-, is to be given to  men who have previously served in  South Africa. . One of the men now  applying from Nelson has lived for  four years in Africa and is familiar  with the country."  CHESS AND CHECKER CLUB  An Interesting Meeting.

The new year and century was  accorded a warm reception in  Nelson if the volume of sound produced by a dozen steam whistles,  several bells and several score of  enthusiastic citizens may be  accepted as a criterion. Tho hoarse  whistle at the smelter was the first  to warn the city that 1900 was a  thing of "the past, and it was the  signal for all the whistles in the  city to take up the strain. The  Methodist church and fire hall bells  helped ont the bedlam which broke  loose and the citizens who remained  up for the occasion helped out with  hearty cheers.  in the nineteenth century. The  club is a product of the closing  days of the century and enters the  new year and century with the distinction of being as live a social  organization as exists in the city.  R. J. Hummex of Erie, who conducted the gamesjof chess by mail  with E. G. Smyth' of the club, was a  visitor during the evening and gave  the club an exhibition of simultaneous games at chess. He played  several members at the same time  and won all the games. It was to  be regretted that E. G. .Smyth, the  club's champion at chess, was unable to attend, as there would have  undoubtedly been an interesting  game between him and Mr.Hummex,  both players being probably the  most brilliant chess players in  British Columbia.-!,   ..
