 o  ���.;.    >~._~K V>>t��g|  ���r  l�� i  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  Weekly edit ion by ma.l  TWO DbLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR  NELSON:  FRIDAY-MORNING JANUARY 4  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  BOUGHT OUT GREENWOOD COMPANIES  Several Holders in the Local Light and Tramway Companies Divide $75,000 Among Themselves.  CREENWOOD-PHOENIX TRAMWAY REGARDED AS ASSURED  Greenwood, .January 3.��� [Special  to The Tribune.]���Outside capital  has acquired entire control bf the  Greenwood Electric Company, and  tlie Greenwood and Phoenix Tramway Company. Today H. C. Shaw,  of the law firm Hallett <fc Shaw, on  behalf of the purchasers, distributed  $75,000 among the following shareholders in both concerns: J. W.  Stewart, Spokane, $12,106; Patrick  AVeleh, Spokane, $12,107; Andrew  Kelly, Brandon, $S120; Ronald Harris, .$S12f); Duncan Mcintosh, $9125;  George H. Collins, $9125; F. J.Finu-  caue, $12,107; and to sundry holders, $4,000.  The Greenwood Electric Company  is a going concern, "supplying light  both to Phoenix and Greenwood. It  hits been in operation nearly .a year.  Its plant and equipment cost  $10,000.  The Greenwood <fc Phoenix Tramway Company has a valuable charter for lines branching out from  this city and tapping Phoenix, Wellington, Summit and Deadwood-  camps, and down Boundary creek  valley, passing the Standard Pyritic  smelter, to Midway on the international boundary line. The mainline  of the tramway will be between  here and Phoenix and will be builb  this year. The utmost secrecy is  maintained as to who the purchasers are. None of the local shareholders can throw any light on the  subject, simply stating that they  sold to H. C. Shaw. Shaw refuses  to divulge .the names of his clients,  as also do the Bank of Montreal  officials, who handled the money.  From a Phoenix correspondent it is  learued that Anthony .T. McMillan,  of Rossla-id, representing an English syndicate headed by George  S. Waterloo, of London, England, is  the purchaser. Certain "it is, that  previous to leaving for England recently, McMillan acquired a short-  term option on the stock of both  companies. -On the other hand, locally it is believed that eastern  Canada capitalists are interested.  Whoever acquired the charters  must have heavy financial backing,  as the cost of the proposed electric  'road and equipment will amount to  over one million dollars. Its con-  .struction will prove of immense  benefit to the district generally, as  it means competitive transportation  on ores to two local smelters.  NEWS OF THE RAILROADS  Lardo Extension Talk.  In this  issue of   Tuk   Tribune.  ifolmG. Sullivan, chief engineer for  the C. P. R. construction in the Pa-  "cific'division'-balls for tenders for  tlie   construction- of a wharf aud  ' transfer slip" at Lardo, and for  80,000 ties. Tenders for tho work  are to be in by noon on the 15th.  The slip which it is proposed to  build will resemble in many respects the one constructed last  summer at Procter, but will bo on  a smaller scale.  The C. P. R. has not definitely  said tho word which is to start  work on the Lardo road, and may  not take the final   step for some  _weeks_yet,_or_pos*ubly_iiot_this_yeai*,_  The fact, however, that the company is going to the length of building a transfer slip this winter, the  utility of which/would be in unloading steel and supplies for tho railroad work, will be taken as unmis-  takeable evidence of their intentions in regard to tho road. The  resumption of work on the Lardo  railroad, fourteen or fifteen miles  of which was graded in 180!), is of  great importance to tho country  through which it is projected. Tlie  Lardo has an era of unprecedented  activity in sight if the opinion of  the local and visiting business and  mining men is to be depended upon.  All that is necessary to precepitato  . the activity is railroad facilities.  Under existing circumstances the  cost of delivering ore at tho nearest  smelter is-so heavy, probably avor-  aiging not less than $10 per ton,  that the. only properties working  are those in the Triune and Nettie  L. class, where the ore i_ exceptionally high grade. Scores of properties are said to be ready to start  when the railroad can be figured on  in estimating the cost of delivering  supplies and moving ore.  Around the Depot.  Business at the C...P. R. depot has  been somewhatdisorgani���edfor the  past few days through the moving  of offices and rearranging of  methods to suit the new quarters.  These difficulties have been overcome rapidly, however, aud matters  are now progressing smoothlj\ The  Nelson & Fort Sheppard business is  being transacted iu the new freight  depot where "the'^Nelson & Fort  Sheppard. agent has a desk alongside the C. P. R. clerks. Where exchanges are necessary a system of  duplicate bills has been evolved to  simplify the transfers. Nelson &  Fort Sheppard freight is also handled in the freight shed, but the  additional business does not complicate things. The O. P. R. has  now taken over the old Nelson &  Fort Sheppard right-of-way to Five-  mile Point and has a clear line  through to Procter. In the passenger depot, the unfinished condition  of- the building is still noticeable,  but' every * effort .is bein g - made', to  : remedy this as rapidly as possible.  '"The"-accident" to"* the "Hinckley  switch engine No: 109, recently removed from tho Nelson yard to the  Columbia & Western road, was not  serious.' The locomotive was bringing a string of loads down the hill  from Rossland when the train got  away with her. The engine went  over the end..of the track at the  point where the switchback to the  smelter commences, but no special  damage is reported.  No word has been received as yet  from the department of marine and  fisheries anent the lighthouse for  Cape Horn, and the installation of  tubular buoys to replace the platform and cage buoys now in -use7  The lake men are not surprised at  this,! however, as the general impression is that any change such as  was suggested to the, departmental  official who recently visited Nelson  would not be made until spring. It  is thought that the new buoys may  arrive in time to be anchored when  the next hi*fh' water necessitates a  change from the present locations.  The Procter slip is to be tested  for efficiency next week. The slight  changes found necessary when the  initial experiment *was made a  couple of weeks ago have been attended to, and the final test would  have been carried through a week  ago had other circumstances not  arisen to prevent. The officials desire to have the slip in thorough  working order as early as possible,  in order that a further drop in the  temperature would not delay  through freight and passenger  trafiic. .  Fairer Treatmont Wanted.  London, .January 3. ��� British  underwriters are much concerned  over the cabled announcement of  the formation of a Canadian Lloyds.  The Financier says today that it  would be well for English companies  to exercise caution in discriminating  against St. Lawrence ports, and to  deal with Canadians if not in a  generous, at least a fair manner.  "The profits of underwriting, iu  connection with the St. Lawrence  canal," adds the Financier, "may as  well come here as go elsewhere."  Pastor Donovan Dead.  Toronto, January 3.���Rev. J.  Donovan, ono of the best known  pastors of the Baptist church in  Canada, died here today, aged 71.  Montreal's Chinese Fight.  Montreal, .Tanuary 3.���The city  is having more difficulty in collecting the laundry tax from Chinamen.    Some Celestials have been  hauled before the courts several  times and have been fined or sent  to jail." At one time the eity had  two hundred Chinamen in jail.  The laundry business went on as  usual. The Chinamen say they  can't pay the $50 tax, nevertheless  some of them have paid more than  that in fines. The civic finance  committee refuses to lower the  amount of the tax, and the result  .will probably be that the jail will  again be filled with Chinese.  Nova Scotia Miners May Strike.  Halifax, January 3.���The mine  managers had a conference at Truro  this morning. At its close they refused to give out anything. It is  reported that the Intercolonial railway authorities have been instructed to detain all coal received "at  Truro, which is taken to indicate  that a general strike of coal miners  in Nova Scotia is inevitable.  MINES OF SPRINGER GREEK  NOW MAKE REGULAR SHIPMENTS  TO NELSON'S SMELTER.  Outline of the Development Work Per-  i* -.  formed Upon the Leading Properties During the Past Year.  Leiter's Proposed Pork Corner.  Toronto, January 3.���Joseph  Leiter, of Chicago, is reported to be  negotiating for the control of all  the Canadian pork packing houses.  Not much credence is given to the  story in Montreal. The opinion of  the majority there is that the business is too widely scattered and  that there are too "many small  firms.           OPPOSES RUSSIA'S PURPOSE  MANCHURIA MUST CONTINUE TO  BE  CHINESE TERRITORY.  American   Shippers   Will  Strengthen  the Hands of McKinley in Resisting European Encroachments.  Washington, January 3.���A  committee from the American  Association^ with headquarters in  New York, called on the president  today. and _ presented a memorial-  expressing their emphatic approval  of the efforts made by him, and the  secretary of state, to hasten a  settlement of the questions at issue  between the powers and the government of China. The memorial  is being sent out for special approval of the demands made on China,  that in future the diplomatic representatives of foreign governments  have direct access to the emperor.  The belief is expressed that the  good of all concerned requires the  resumption of activity by emperor  Kwang Su, and tho hope is expressed that the integrity of the  -Chinese empire-may���be-a-condi tion  of any settlement to which the  United States,is a party, and also  that the great province of Manchuria should continue to be regarded as inseparable from the  other provinces of the middle kingdom. In the negotiation of a new  ��� treaty.of- trade and navigation the  memorial represents the possibility  of insisting upon full heed being  paid both by the imperial and provincial governments to the letter of  such treaties, in respect of the  transit-passes issued in return for  stipulated payment, and intended  to clear imported merchandise  irom all further taxation on its.  way to the inland markets. One of  the piincipal objects and purposes  of the association is to foster and  safeguard the trade and commercial interests of the citizens of the  United States and others associated  therewith in the empires of China,  Japan and Korea, and in the Philippine Islands.  In advocating an adequate military force, senator Hawley said  that in addition to the continuous  trouble in the Philippines the  United States might at any time  come within, theatre of war with  some European power. "We are  not altogether out of sight of some  possibility of war. with some European power," he declared. We do  know some of them are iii a great  deal of trouble, and I understand  they look with very great jealousy  upon our talk of a Danish island,  and our talk about acquiring other  territory., ������,..,���  Presentation to Colonel Otter.  Toronto, January 3.���The women  Of Toronto yesterday presented colonel Otter with a cabinet of silver  as a mark of their esteem and approval of his services.  Hamilton's Small Fire Loss.  Hamilton,  January   3.���Hamilton's fire loss for the year  only totals $34,000.  1900,  Several Slocan. City mining men  are in the city today in connection  with ore shipments to the Hall  Mines     smelter.    ^Springer   creek,  which enters the li-ike near Slocan  - ��� i  City, is rapidly earning a reputation as draining one [of the richest  mineral sections of the Slocan, and  the people interested in the district  are now looking forward to a season  of even greater advancement, and  it is confidently predicted that the  the close of the present year will  see the number of' shipping properties in the Springer creek basin  doubled if not trebled.  Much of the attention now directed to this district has originated through the development .of  the Arlington mine-from the prospect stage to"that <**-��' a mine, and a  big mine at that. \jThe Arlington  is now shipping.itsJftvyo cars daily  to the Nelson-smelter, and the raining men of Slocsin City are looking  "forward to the end > of the * present  month in,,tlie. confident expectation  that the" Arlington will' outstrip  the Payne mine at-Sandon, which  has iip to* thef present, carried the  banner for extensive shipments. -  With the."Arlington as a starter,  the creek has a number of properties  in anadvaricedstagebf development.  The Bondholder, owned by R. C.  Campbell-Johnson, of Nelsou, and  others, has already made a couple  .of shipments which**.created a mild  sensation in a camp where rich'ore  is by no means uncommon. The  .proposition, ..isjiehj^worked, under  please, and future .^shipments are  likely to surpass former ones, as the  facilities for sorting ore are now  much improved.  The Two Friends group has been  much in the public eye of late  through the legal diiiiculties encountered by parties holding a  minor interest in the property. The  mine has now recommenced shipping, and has a couple of cars of ore  enioute to the smelter. It is expected that the Two Friends will  eventually becomo one of the best  producers on the creek.  The Black Prince is also working  again on a lease * held by Frank  -aSherryand=partners.=_It=is=repoi'ted=  that a deal will be made shortly ou  this group which will result in  placing it on the list of producers  before tbe endof the year.  The Ottawa is another property  of which much has been heard of  late, though in its case the notoriety  came as a result of excellent strikes  in the course of development. The  Ottawa is being worked by the  owners, T. Mulvey, W. Clement and  J. Richmond. The crew is now taking out some high grade ore in the  course of development, aud a shipment is to be made before spring.  The showing on the property is  good, and report has it that a deal  is on the tapis.  At the Tamarac, near the Ottawa,  a Spokane and Portland syndicate  has a crew of men at work, aud reports from the property are to the.  effect that excellent ore has been  encountered.  Tho Lily B. group is much fancied'  by mining men and is set down  among the properties which will be  on the shipping list before the year  closes. It is owned by E. Tucker,  G. Long, M. Moycr and C. Thompson who are now crosscutting in  the lower level to tap the veiu at a  depth of 100 feet.  South of the Arlington is the  Transfer group belonging to Charles  Barber and William Hicks. It is  believed by the owners and others  that the Transfer has the Arlington  vein, and that a deal will be closed  before summer by which the property will be systematically developed.  Adjoining tho Transfer is the  Calumet & Hecla on which Mulvey  and Clement have done 450 feet of  work.  Elsewhere on tho creek are several other properties which offer  good inducements to capital. The  Viking & Phoenix group is now  being worked by a Portland, Oregon, syndicate, and has the distinction of being one of the few  gold propositions on the creek.  The Gladstone, owned by John  McKinnon and Alex Stewart, has a  crosscut tunnel in 180 feet, and  from 4 to 8 inches of clean shipping  ore in ��� bight, with several feet of  concentrating ore in the ledge.  The St. Almo adjoining the Lily  B is owned by T. Turpin, who has  done 125 feet of work on the claim,  exposing from two to six inches of  shipping ore.  Above the Arlington is the  Hampton, belonging to Mr. McNaught of New Denver, whose  trial shipment last fall established  a record for the camp.  "��� The Exchange is another promising property. It is owned by H.  L. Fife, W. Boie, C. Tibbing and J.  Robson.  The Little Dorritt, west of the  St. Almo, and the King David adjoining the Ottawa are owned by  Paul Houck of Slocan Cicy, who is  now working the- Bondholder on a  lease. Both groups are likely to be  worked this year.  In addition to the foregoing  there are other properties on  Springer creek which promise to  come to the front with further development, and to swell the volume  of ore now being shipped from  "Slocan City.  INVASION BECOMES SERIOUS  LONDON WELCOMES LORD ROBERTS  The Idol of the Army Receives the Greatest Reception  Ever Tendered a Commoner.  HUSSARS HAVE THE PIAGE OF HONOR IN THE CEREMONY  PROOFS  AGAIN BEING- HURRIED  NORTH FOR  SERVICE.  Over  Six  Thousand  Men   Recruited  Within the Past Few Weeks to  Maintain Communications.  Cape Town, January 3. ��� The  military authorities are preparing  for all contingencies. Farmers  coming in to Cape Town describe  the Boers as traveling in- parallel  columns," with numerous flanking  parties sweeping the country of  horses, plundering- loyalists, "and  carrying off everything eatable. It  appears that they are accompanied  by strings of pack, horses lightly  loaded.  Colesburg telegraphs that Krit-  singer's commando is crossing the  Middleburg district, but is getting  few if any recruits. Here in Cape  Town such business men as are unable to leave, are organizing a town  guard, composed of the leading  citizens. The commercial companies have asked the mayor to call  a mass meeting to urge the goveru-  =ment==to=:suppress^disloyal=news-  papers.^ and to proclaim martial  law.   '.' ������������!-.   . ;���  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Canadian  premier, replying to sir .Tohn Gordon Sprague's thanks to the Canadian contingent, cables the Cape  Colony premier as follows : "Canada  will be repaid for the little she has  done if her example helps to bring  peace, harmony and confidence  among all her majesty's subjects in  .South Africa."  The British battleship Monarch  today landed men and guns to relieve the troops stationed here for  service northwards. It is believed  the guns will be sent up country.  Five hundred citizens enlisted today, tlie enrollment being ve��*y active. It is hoped the first batch of  men will leave within three days  for the north. They are to hold  the passes of the Pex River mountains, and to protect the railway  tunnel. The organization is rough  and ready, aud not troubled with  much drill.  Six thousand five hundred South  African irregulars have been recruited during the last eight weeks.  The Boers in the Transvaal have  been exceedingly active for the last  week or so, daily attacking trains,  convoys and outposts. In somo instances they have been repulsed,  and the railways are now working  more regularly.  A commando is reported to be in  the mountains dividing Middleburg  and Graafeinet, but it cannot be exactly located. The invaders in tho  West, who were expected at Fras-  erburg today, have altered their  course, and are moving in the direction of Williston, in the Northwest.  The British have occupied Fraser-  burg. Tlio Boers in Bechuanaland  havo beeu again joined by such of  tho inhabitants as before rebelled.  Commandoes aro reported to be at  Blakefontein, Boet/.haa and Daniel-  sku. Their objective is believed to  be Griquatown, whieh is occupied  by the British.  London, January 3.���Lord Roberts today received a right royal  welcome on his return to London,  after a year's absence in South  Africa. The crowds were not so  dense, nor so demonstrative -as  during the recent reception to the  London volunteers, but there were  many instances of people paying  from three to ten guineas for seats  on the balconys of stately mansions,  like a play house. Lord Rbthchilds'  and the duke of Devonshire's residences were crowded with nobility.  It iwas as the man, rather than the  general, that London welcomed  "Little Bobs." "Ain't he brown,"  said people in the crowd, but brown  or white, big or little, the reception  accorded lord Roberts proved that  thereis no more beloved figure in  public life in . England than the  present commander-in-chief.  Lord Roberts was in full uniform,  but behind his carriage his staff followed in khaki. ��� They and six Indian orderlies, in magnificent semi-  barbaric uniforms, were the only  picturesque features,of the little'  procession. The fact that his personal escort consisted of the Tenth  Hussars, which regiment lord Ross-  lyn and others had accused of cowardice at Sannas Post, was taken to  indicate lord Roberts' expressed desire to exculpate the Hussars from  any blame, besides paying a tribute  to the prince of .Wales, their honorary colonel.  Such an array of royalties has^  seldom turned out to do hohbr'tb.a"  commoner. Those present at the  luncheon at. Buckingham palace,  where the ceremonies ended, consisted of 50 persons, about 20 of  whom were royalties, and 30 of  nobility, the latter including lord  Salsbury, the duke of Devonshire,  lord Wolseley and a majority of  the members of the cabinet.  All the royal ladies were iu half  mourning, and most of the guests  in neutral or somber tints. The  princess of Wales wore black, with  a cream vest. Princess Louise had  a costume of black velvet with  mauve, and Mrs. Joseph Chamber-  =lain-was4n=black.=y_he=tabies=were-  beautiful with gold plate and floral  decorations, and in the center of  each was a big gold cup. At the  high table, in the center, lord Roberts, looking fatigued but triumphant, sat between the princess of  Wales and the princess Victoria of  Wales. The prince of Wales sat  between lord Salisbury, lord  Wolseley and lord Selborne.  The second table, held by the  duke of York, included Mr. and  Mrs. Chamberlain. There were  only two toasts, one to the queen,  and the other to lord Roberts.  The prince of Wales, proposing  the health of the field marshal,  said: " It is my pleasure on behalf  of the princess, and of all the others  of tho royal family, in the queen's  name to welcome lord Roberts  home from the distant country  where he has commanded our gallant armyin. every difficult and  trying circumstance. I am glad to  think the war is now nearly  approaching conclusion. We congratulate lord Roberts upon the  great success he has achieved, and  upon seeing him safe back. In the  name of all present I wish to express our delight at finding lord  Roberts accompanied by his wife,  aud two daughters, especially the  one whose health recently caused  so much anxiety." After felicitating lord Roberts upon the reception accorded him by the citizens and the soldiers, the prince  went on to say: "It was such a  reception as will be accorded to all  Englishmen who do their duty.  His lordship and I have known each  other so long that it fills my heart  with joy to see the gallant soldier  again. No ono could offer him  heartier welcome than those who  havo assembled here. I propose his  good health." The speech of the  prince was frequently interrupted  with cries of "Hear; hear," and the  whole company rose to honor the  guest.  Lord     Roberts    replying    said  "Your royaL:^highnesses, 'my- lords  and ladies, and gentlenieen"-**   lam'"'  deeply sensible of the honor your  royal highness, with the princess'  and the duke and duchess of Con-  uaught paid nie in  coming to see'  me at Paddington station, and I appreciate very highly the kind aiid  flattering .words   in   which .your  royal   highness   has   proposed my  health.   My heart is full of joy .it  the magnificent honor with which  her majesty   has   been graciously  pleased to reward my endeavors in  South Africa, and at the splendid  welcome which the.public and England has given me.   The only draw -  back to my happiness is that circumstances   in South * Africa, have  prevented   more of .my5.comrades  'being with me,   tho   comrades' to  whose . valor  and    military    skill  I   owe     any   success   .that   may  have been achieved in South Africa.  I much,wished that* sbine-of the,-  representatives of the great colony;   "  should have accompanied me here..  The   colonies,   which'  have .given*  their bravest and their.bestto fights  for the mother country,.have given  signal proof of   the' unity of > the   *  empire   under', one   flag and  'one  sovereign;    Your gracious words,**  sir, and the kindness of the distinguished company in responding  to them will, I assure you, never be . '  forgotten by me."   The speech was   "  heartily applauded.  Lord Roberts went from Buckingham  palace .to, the-war office,  where*.*he "formally took bver.*the   -  -,work of ^commander-in-chief of the*  forces.'. He will begin attending the   *  war office'at' regulaVrhburs'"* tomorrow.   The war office, the West End  clubs and the public-buildings were,  illuminated this evening. The thru--    *  oughfares were unusually crowded  this evening and spirit was evident,  but there was little of the disorder  and drunkenness of previous war  celebrations.  STILL SUSPECT THE CHINESE  No Progress Being Made,  Pekin, .Tanuary 3.���At a meeting  of the foreign  ministers today it  was announced that Li Hung Chang  ^aTM^rinc^^Cliihg^^re-prepaWd" to-  sign an agreement as soon as it is  ready for signature. Li Hung Chang  desires to conduct the peace negotiations to a conclusion, and tho  physicians attending him think he  might be taken to the Spanish legations, where the conferences havo  been held, if the weather is favorable. The Germans are reported to '  be returning to San How with a  number of prisoners.  The foreign envoys, with the exception bf the British minister, sir  Ernest Satow, met today to consider the time and place for peaco  plans. Nothing was done. It seems  to be the opinion of some that the  acceptance of the terms of the  note by the Chinese is not  explicit enough. The Chinese  desire for consultations regarding  .the razing of the forts, and the legation guards, is open to misrepresentation, and liable to long and  continued arguments which might,  in the opinion of some ministers,  simply mean sparring for time on  the part of the Chinese. Consequently the Chinese plenipoteu-  taries will be informed that they  must sign the note before a meeting is called.  Sir Ernest Satow, who has been  suffering from chills and fever, is  better.  The military engineeers of the  allies have agreed upon a plan for  the future defense of the legations.  Prince Henry in Politics.  Berlin, January 3. ��� Prince  Henry, of Prussia, emperor William's brother, began work in tlio  foreign office yesterday. Foreign  politics will form the first subject  of his study, and later he will pursue his investigations among the  various departments of the ministry.

The figures were  " printed in the Christmas number of  the British Columbia Mining Record of Victoria. The Tribune, on  December 22nd, quoted the figures-  giving Mr. West clue credit for preparing them. It then used the figures to show that the 2 per cent  tax on the output of metal mines  did not work a hardship va/ th_^  ynine-owners of^the-Slocan; The  article that appeared in The Tribune did not, even by implication,  say that Mr. West favored the  imposition of the 2 per ceut  tax. It merely said that "the  'following figures are given as the  ������ value of Slocan ore by Howard  '*. West of New Denver." The figures then-followed. In what way  do the words quoted above misrepresent Mr. West? Is Mr. West  ashamed of his figures, or is he  ashamed because he made the following statement: "It is estimated  " that one-third of the value of the  " ore mined in the Slocan has'been  ".disbursed in dividends." The  truth of the matter is, the figures  prepared by Mr. West, if true, and  The Tribune believes they 'are,  clearly prove that the payment of  the 2 per cent tax is not working a  hardship on the mine-owners of the  Slocan. But The Tribune-is the  only daily newspaper in the province that dares say so,.just as it  was the only daily newspaper; in  the." province that dared';say the  eight-hour-law would -be' found' to'  . .work no great hardship on the mine-  owners, price. it. was., given a fair  trial.. For taking this stand on the  eight-hour and' 2 per cent tax issues, TiiE'TrIbUne is' hot particularly well liked by either mine-o.wn*-  ers or men, like, assayers, who are  dependent on mine-owners for. a  living. *  ' THT5 newspaper organ of the disgruntled element in Nelson is try-  ii;ig ;hard'to.; make it appear tliat  alderman McKillop has dropped out  of*therrace-fbi' mayor because lie.  .and candidate Fletcher are' of one  opinion on all questions that concern the ��� civic ��� body - politic. The  statement - is not true. Alderman  McKillop dropped out of * the race  for the reason that the men' who induced him to become a candidate  went back on him. They funked,  and left their candidate -in tho  lurch.          John A. fRViNG has consented to  make the race for alderman in the  East ward. Mr. Irving has conducted his own business successfully, and if-elected to the. council  will, no doubt, help manage the  business of the city on business  principles. He endorses the platform issued by candidate Fletcher.  It now looks Wif Frank Fletcher  would beelected. mayor by. acclamation. This, is just a trifle  amusing, when the claims so  recently made on behalf of alder-'  man McKillop are considered.  ' It is just possible" that the only  ballot papers used on Thursday, the  17th instaut, will be those printed  for the by-law-granting a. franchise  for: an electric district messenger  company. ' ,   .  Frank Fletcher stands for a  progressive and tolerant civic  government. That is all a majority  of the..people of Nelson ask for  from the next council. Progress  and toleration, tempered with  prudence, will keep Nelson in the  fore front of well governed city  municipalities.  STATISTICS FOR THE YEAR  From the Government Offices.  The.government office -staff- has  been busy for several days past  compiling'the figures for the year's  work for submission to the , various  departments at Victoria.. Their  work was completed yesterday and  the* result is interesting ��� reading.  The statement from the mining recorder's branch.of the office for the  Nelson mining division is as follows:  Miners' licenses issued -. 1(192  Companies' licenses issued    :)3  Certificates of work issued..'.;  1BUS  Certificates of improvements issued.  1&5  Bills of sale recorded  !'_>  Notices recorded '.-....'.' ��� .20  .Agreementsrecorded    H j  P_*.versof attorney recorded      1  The recording and issuing of  these documents entailed a large  amount of work, and it is only fair  to state that the recorder and - his  clerks have during the year added  to the reputation of the office for  eoui'tesy, and dispatch in handling  business. *  Information of an interesting  nature is compiled1 from the logis-  trar of births, deaths and marriages for the Nelson district. In  this capacity Mr. Wright authorizes the appended statement of  vital statistics:  Births .  ...  Deaths   Mairiu_es.  Females.   .11  .  .. 51  Males.

Whilo in the council in 1897,1 voted in favor of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all com racts,  and tliat principle was carried out in both loiter  and spirit. I see no reason to change my views  on that question now. And I believe, furthor,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that the city can-get as good value for the  money Bpent by having the greatbulk of its work  done by day's labor as by the contract system,  and no good reason can bo advanced why the  city should not pay the samo rate *of wages and  -work men tho same number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises.  1 am in favor of giving lhe'l)usinos3 and property interests every safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe the fire department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent wil U .the  Tevcnuesof the cily. -���-��_.  Nelson should be kept ia advance- of its rivals,  and everything -posslblo *must be done to^ in-  'duco manufacturing enterprise? to locate here,  ���for it is the payrolls" that build up the cities of  today. _ _'..,'  Nelson, a western city,' is*"a"s orderly and-law  abiding as eastern .cities. This, is because-the  ���people of Nelson aro tolerant.* I believe that'this  ,spirit of toleration should be-continued;und I  -will if elected mayor do no act to abridge or curtail tho rights or privileges of o'nc" class of our  citizens merely because another class may have  different views.  The ci'y has made a start in permanent street  -improvements, and I am in' favor.of continuing  these improvements ns fast, as possible, with due  regard io the revenues of the city.  If elected mayor, I am in a position and will  pledge myself to devote my timo I o the conduct  of the city'a bufinesj.  _ _.   FRANK FLETCHER.  Nelson, December 15th, 1000.  A CARD.,  * To Tin*.
