STORM BREWING AMONG LONDON GLOBE SHAREHOLDERS  New York, January 0.-���Isaac N.  Ford says, in regard to recent developments in the far east: The  China question is, without doubt,  the most serious complication of  the new year, but the gravity of  the situation makes little impres-  ��� siou upon English opinion. The  raids of a few hundred guerillas are  considered, strangely enough, of  more consequence than the virtual  occupation of Manchuria by Russia,  and the disturbance of the balance,  of power in the far east. It is a  illustration of the impairment of  national judgment, through preoccupation with a . single subject.  England, by making too much of  what is happening in South Africa,  has a false measure for estimating  values every where else.  While the   Chinese   government,  has"* accepted -the*" proposals of tho  ,; powers in principle! but -reserved-  the right of discussing the details,  it' has sanctioned an agreement by  Which it retains tlie nominal administration of Moukdon, and the  southern provinces, of Manchuria,  under Russian military occupation.  This   disguise   is transparent, and  " does not deceive anyone, and Manchuria has become Russian. The  seizure     of     Port     Arthur      has  ,   led ���    to      this       iuevitable     .se-  ��� ��� que.nce of events.    The presence of  a Riis'-ian resident iu Moukden will  be "a plain- indication that   Man-*  churia, .with a Chinese admiuistra- *  tion, has become nominally a prb-  - - i^cted.state, jbut in reality -a- prov:  ince'of theccz*ir's dominions. .The  diplomatic by-play over the principles   -of   the   powers, -and - the  ' amount of indemnity, will go on,  but there has been an entire change  _, in the situation, aud it is impossible  "for either England *or- Germany to  go back' to the status quo of  January of last year. The relations  of tbe powers have beeu thrown  out of balance by the perfection of  the Russian systems. 'Questions  relating to spheres of interest -will  certainly be raised, and there will  > probably be a fresh series of territorial seizures. The hopelessness  of the situation tends to make  English leader-writers pessimistic.  The"-crisis-has-arisen���which���was-  eoutemplated in the third article of  the Auglo-Gerraan agreement, but  no practical results are expected  from the conference of the two  powers.  Referring to the conciliatory policy pursued by lord Kitchener in  South Africa, Mr. Ford says: South  Africa for a while continues" to  hold the field, aud lord Kitchener,  who was credited by his admirers  with being an iron-handed soldier,  without sentiment or softness, has  astonished hi_ critics by a timely  display of conciliation and statesmanship. His temperate language  at the burghers' conference in Pretoria has been followed by a suspension of the order for burning  farm*-, and the way is opening for  negotiations for peace. Lord  Kitchener happily has disappointed  expectations, based upon his coii-  duct in the Khartoum campaign,  and is carrj'ing out lord Roberts'  policy of patient leniency with remarkable discretion.  The military adviser, who often  aids me in forming a correct judgment of what is happening it South  .   Africa,  offers this explanation of  - tbe palmness and indifference with  which lord Kitchener has regarded  the recent raid**. "Lord Kitchener  knows that he has three points iu  "tlie campaign, namely, to capture  generals Dewet, Lelarey and Botha.  ��� He is   concentrating   his   energies  upon [hunting  "down  Dewet,   and  ., whet} that result is aeomplished,  he will mass his mounted forces  against the other two Boer leaders.  He has not allowed himself to be  cjiverted from the pursuit of Dewet.  "When the raiders crossed the  Orange river into the Dutch-districts of Cape Colony, he probably  smiled grimly, for he knew "that  they were not in sufficient force to  do much harm, yet would be certain  to harass the seditious ��� population,  which has been a thorn in the Brit  ish side throughout the war. The  Cape Colony Dutch are now getting  practical experience of the damage  caused by the raiders, with whom  they have beeu in sympathy, aud  their views of the justice  of the Boer cause will undergo a radical change. Cape Colony  has also been put on its defence.  Meanwhile the hunt after Dewet  goes on, and lord Kitchener tells  the burghers they are not disgraced  but overpowered and ought to  abandon a'hopeless struggle.  Finances are viewed by Mr. Ford  as follows : The money market has  partly responded to the advance of  the bank rate, but several days will  be required before it can' be made  effective, ft is au idle conjecture  whether tho rate will be raised  again for the prevention of gold'  shipments, when tlie bank has  secured control of the market.  Thatqnestion.will.be more timely  late in March. Tlie proceedings for  "winding up or re-establishing the  credit of the London ��& Globe Corporation are attracting much attention, owing to the association of  the marquis, of Dnfferin with the  mismanaged group ~ of speculative  shares. - His diplomatic successes  did not fit .him for directing the  financial fortunes of a-group of  over-capitalised undertakings under  the pressure of a tremendous bear  squeeze, and lie has felt keenly his  own responsibility when a large  proportion of the shareholders were  drawn into the dangerous sppen-  lation by the use of his name. Next  week's meeting for the purpose of  rd_termining*theiuture of the com-  .pany.wiirbe most* e'xciting,~'urile__.  a proxy for man-his favor be generally adopted, and he commits himself to a searching public investigation of the causes of the disaster.  Referring to the status of the  Hay-Pauncefote* treaty, Mr. Ford  says: The discussion on the Hay-  Pauncefote treaty has ended with  generalizations like that of today's  Spectator, that the foreign oflice  will not consider the. peculiar attitude of ..the senate, but the text of  the amendments; and the sustained  arguments of the Economist that it  is difficult to negotiate with America because she wobbles aud does  not know her mind, and that because -she-is_grasping_or__because_  she is tricky. There is much apprehension here which might be removed if the daily journals would  print the full text of the Hay-  Pauncefote treaty as amended.  The foreign office will pass judgment in due course upon the  amendments, but not without deliberation. The most hopeful forecast which I have received from  any authoritative source is that it  is unsafe to assume that the amendments will be rejected and the  treaty be thrown out."  Of Interest to Packers.  Leslie Hill of Vancouver by advertisement in another column is  calling for tenders for packing supplies for a camp of 15 to 25 men,  including tools, hay, oats, etc., and  machinery for a 5-stamp sectional  gold mill, weight about ' 30,000  pounds, two pieces weighing 350  pounds each, no other piece weigh  ing more than 300 pounds. The  distance is 45 to 50 miles from  Seaton lake. There is a sleigh road  from Seaton lake to Bridge river,  about nine miles; trail up Bridge  river, and sleighing on ice in the  winter; sleigh road from Bridge  river to the mines, seven miles.  There are two ferries on Bridge  river; rates, 50 cents for loaded  and 25 cents for unloaded animals  (reduced rates by contract). Good  baled timothy hay" h delivered at  Seaton lake for $25 per ton. * Oats  two cents per pound. Good feed  for horses in the summer all the  way. Freight on Seaton lake 25  cents per 100 poupds.  They Were Anxious to Sell.  A syndicate of Nelson men are  negotiating with certain English  capitalists.for the sale of a group of  mineral claims, and the deal may  be consummated in a day or two,  when particulars will be forthcoming.   In the course of the negotia-  tions an amusing incident transpired. Tho local men did not wish  their terms to interfere with the  deal, and with a view to doing the  right thing specified that the consideration of $20,000 "should be paid  in various payments extending over  a considerable period. The English  purchasers replied that they were  "not doing business on the installment plan," and that if the title  and other matters were as represented the $20,000. would be paid  over in a lump sum when the transfer was completed.  Accident to Lord Revelstoke.  London, January 6.���Lord Revelstoke (John Baring), a director of the  Bank of England aud a partner in  Baring Brothers <fc Co., while out  hunting with the hounds yesterday  was thrown from his horse and  dragged a distance. His face "was  badly cut.   WHAT DID BULLER ORDER?  CARDINAL GIBBONS ON WAR  DID HE ADVISE GENERAL WHITE  TO SURRENDER LADYSMITH?  This is a Secret Which the Generals  and Their Staff Have so Far  Jealously Guarded.    -  London, .Tanuary 4.���Earl Roberts has,gone out of town to visit a  sister in the country over Sunday,  but will be back at the Avar office  early on Monday. ** It is clear that  army reform. depends , in a large  measure upon his initiative rather  than Upon the recommendation of  -the special commission' appointed  by Mr. Broderick to consider the  details of the administratioii of the  war office, which three committees  have investigated to little purpose  during the last three years. Nothing  is said by Mr. Broderick about re-  stpration qfrjthe_J^inctions -which,  were taken away from* the^cOm-  mander-in-chief when the duke of  Cambridge resigned the post. It  would be an earnest of real reform  if lord Roberts, who knows from  practical experience what is needed  in order to increase the efficiency of the army, were  armed with larger powers. That  would be an effective tribute  to a general whom the court and.  people have honored, and it would  gratify the army, which is fretting  under war office control. Sir  Henry Colville's course, iu attacking the staff of. the army in South  Africa, is condemned by military  men, but he commands a certain  amount_of_synipathy in .the service  for his strictures upon the war  office for exercising authority with  which it ought not to be entrusted.  The interests of the service suffer,  without doubt,: from civilian  attempts to enforce discipline,  when the authority of the -commander-in-chief would be accepted  without questioning.  This is the anniversary of the  Boer assault upon Ladysmith, when  general White's men drove the enemy from Wagon Hill, after fighting  from dawn to dusk. General Bul-  ler's Devonshire friends might have  chosen a more opportune day for  reviving the diseus&ion over his alleged orders for the evacuation of  Ladysmith, and if they considered  it necessary to refer to the matter  they,might have delivered a more  effective replyV They assert tliat  general Buller did not order general  White to surrender, but suggested  measures which might be taken if  his supplies were to run out.  They also explain that general  Buller, after failing at Colenso, was  misinformed as to general White's  supplies, which were larger than he  supposed. This explanation tends  to confirm, rather than dispel, the  vague rumors which have found  their way into print, but not from  any authoritative source. It is  probable that general Buller, after  Colenso, heliographedi to general  White that he could .not make a  second attempt to'cross the Tugela  for four weeks, and suggested a retreat under certain conditions' if  the garrison were without food.  The precise, terms in whieh this  recommendation was made are  known only to Buller and White,  and their confidential staff officers.  It is a passage of the secret history  of the. campaign which will be  brought to light some day, in order  to silence the rumor mongers who  have heard the camp talk of Ladysmith.  EUROPE'S ARMED   PEACE  COSTS  OVER*l*%W,()00,000.  He Says the Teachings of the Gospel  Afford  the  Only  Basis  for  y  , Enduring Peace.  Baltimore, January 6.���Cardinal  Gibbons today delivered a sermon  at high mass, in which he reviewed  briefly the events bf the century  just closed, with special reference  to the wars which have been  waged during that period, as a preface to an,urgent plea for universal  peace. He spoke in part as follows:  "Wars are less frequent and less  inhuman in the Chiistian dispensation than in Pagan times, but it  must be confessed that wc are yet  far removed from the millenium of  universal peace. The nineteenth  century,*from\its beginning to its  sunset, has .witnessed almost a continuous scene of \sanguinary struggles betweeri;'th_hiati6ns of Christian Europe.    v ���, ��� .  "It is a subject, of great concern  to the friends'ofith'e gospel, qf peace  that Christian;Europe presents today the spectacle c"? a huge-military  camp. All the nations on' the continent, as well" as- England, are  armed to the teeth, and are living  in mutual; dread1 and distrust of  each other." They are devoured by  an insatiable affibition of {'conquest  and dominionY^bivby a fear, of ".'invasion,.' Wheng'yousee heavy clouds  charged withy tlie electricity-of war  hanging ovef^these^ nations, ' you  may expect tlie 'thunder clap^of  battle to resound at. any-moment.  Armed nations* like armed" individuals, are a constant menace' to one  another, andare easily provoked to  fight.    -���      ���.'-"      .  . w  * "Again these >military, forces in-  -stead_Pt diniinishh^$��%. unhappily,  increasing every-year.v ������"As ���' soon as  one nation augments its armament  its neighbor -feels impelled- to do  likewise in self-defence. ��� According to a report compiled and  published . from official . sources  the army list of Europe on 'a  war. footing comprises nearly 1-1,-  000,000 of men,1 and the animal  cost of maintenance, even in  time of peace exceeds six hundred  millions of dollars. The teachings  of the gospel form the only basis of  peace for the rulers of the earth.  All of the arts and resources of  diplomacy will be in vain, all the  courts of arbitration and peace conferences that ever -shall assemble  -will avail���but_little,_as experience  demonstrates. All their deliberations will be so much paper wasted,  unless guided and framed iinder the  -Lord of peace.who sits enthroned  on the cross."        '  PHILIP D.  ARMOUR  DEAD  He Was a Moneymaker.  Chicago, .Tanuary 0.���Philip D.  Armour died at his residence in  Prairie avenue, in the city, at 5:45  this evening. The end came after  two years of illness, during which  time Mr. Armour visited German  baths passed the cold months in  southern California, and devoted  himself largely to an attempt to  restore his 'health, which had been  broken, never to been regained.  For several weeks the millionaire  had been living at the old family  homestead in Prairie avenue, the  usual trip to southern California  not haying been taken this winter.  He came down to the office in the  Home Insurance building .but seldom and as the cold increased he  decided hot to come at. all. It was  understood in the office that he had  an incipient attack of pneumonia,  but it wa9 given out no later than  a week ago that he was;oh;the road  to recovery. It was v noted, however, that the constant attendance  of doctor Frank Billings, the family  physician, at the bedside of the sick  man did not corroborate.the favorable reports at the down town office.  The death of his son, .Philip D.  Armour, Junior, ia southern California, January 29th, 1900, was a  great shock to the health broken  man. The son had gone ou a visit  to his father, and was taken  suddenly ill with pneumonia. His  death followed with scarcely a day's  warning.   The son had largely in  herited the father's ability; and  was closely following the footsteps  of the head when lie was stricken  down.  After the death of Philip D.  Armour, Junior, the vast interests  of Armour and Company, which  has been carried on as a co-partnership, were incorporated under the  old name of Armour & Co. This  was to provide greater stability in  case of death, and made no change  in' the practical ownership of the  properties. So carefully - had the  plans for the future been made that  the death of Mr. Armour will have  little effect on the outward working  o_ the great properties with which  he has been closely identified. It  is believed that the Armour properties will be held intact" until the  grandchildren come into their own.  Estimates of Mr. Armour's own  estate run from $10,000,000 to  $25,000,000. This, of course, does  not include the $15,000,000 or  $20,000,000 owned by the younger  members of his faniily. For years  every enterprise he was interested  in has been making immense profits.  His holdings of stock have all advanced largely during the last three*  years.      '   EIGHT MEN BURNEDTO DEATH  OVERPOWERED WITH SMOKE AND  UNABLE TO ESCAPE. -  Terrible Loas of Life-in an Otherwise  Insignificant Little Fire in  -   - Minneapolis.  Minneapolis, January 0.���Eight  men lost their lives in a fire at  Washington avenue south, at 5  o'clock this* morning. The fire had  its origin in thcrear of the Standard Furniture Company. - The men  were overtaken by an intense volume of smoke in the Harvard hotel,  ..whichAoccnpie3 the- second, third  'and fourth' floors''of tlie building,'  and death in every instance -was  due to suffocation. When the men  were " found, in various parts  of the house, a man named Erick-  son was dead, and seven otiiers were  unconscious. When the fire was  discovered the night clerk and two  men set about to waken the lodgers.  One devoted his attention to the  second floor, while another rushed  upstairs. The men were all sound  asleep, and in seveial instances it  was necessary for O'Connor to  break in the doors.  The loss on the building and contents will not exceed $3000.  The dead are : Nathan C. Perley,  00���years ;^*-C-���J��� Skidmore,,_45-  yeaivs B. S. Bentley, 55 years; B.  Scofield, 45 years; G. Rudey, 45  years; M. Monshan, 55 years; J. N.

A large number of the supporters  of the candidacy of Frank Fletcher  for mayor met on Saturday night  at the committee rooms on Vernon  street. After an informal exchange  of views and opinions and patient  hearing of the grievances of the  politicians who reside in waterlogged block 24, it was resolved by  a standing vote, which was unanimous, that the followingnamed-  candidates be indorsed for aldermen: In the East ward���John Paterson, John A. Irving, William G.  Gillett; in the West ward���John  Hamilton, Thomas Madden, Harlod  Selous.

Woodstock, January 0.���Samuel  Walsh, of St. Thomas, has instituted  proceedings for $5000 damages  against his father-in-law for the  alienation of his wife's affections.  Walsh was a patient in the Toronto  general hospital in 1897, and fell in  love there with Miss^Edith Phillips,  .who was a nurse, and one of Oxford's/fairestdaughters.--'The"'girl-  was not of age and her father re**  fused his consent 'to her marriage.  Despite this refusal, however, the  couple were married. The husband  was called away to Louisville, Kentucky, shortly after the marriage,  and, it is alleged, the father of the  girl refused to allow her to go to  meet her husband, despite the lat-  ter's request.  Newspaper Men in Trouble.  Montreal, January 0.���Preaching in St. James' cathedral today,  archbishop Bruchesi complained of  the publication in two local French  Sunday newspapers of certain  articles on the marriage question,  calculated~to~destroy_the_authority"  of the church, in the course of  which he said : "If the proprietors  or editors of these two. papers do  not publish a retraction, which must  be submitted to me, I will interdict  them in-the archdiocese, and forbid  auy people to read thera."

HUDSON'S BAY  It is said that all the customs  smelters in the United States and  Canada are members  of a trust;  i _   i  that they have decided to raise the  smelting charge on -lead ore; and  that tlie smelters in the United  States have refused to renew existing contracts or to make bids for  the silver lead ores mined in British  Columbia. These may be statements bf "fact. If there is a customs  smelter . trust, the miners-of ore  need not expect anything else than  that charges for smelting will be  raised without notice. Such a  course would be in keeping with all  business enterprises that are con-  . trolled-by trusts. The price of  sugar is raised without notice, as is  the price of steel rails. Where  there is but one buyer, .the seller  cannot hope to get but one price  offered for a commodity. ���But is  there not a remedy within the  - reach of the silver-lead mine owners  of British Columbia ? If the owners  of low-grade gold-copper mines can  build and successfully operate  .smelters, why canuot the owners of  high-grade silver-lead mines do  likewise ? The available smelter  sites are not all taken up; No one  company or trust has control of the  coal and coke and lime aud iron  and water in this province... A  smelter operated by the owners of  Slocan silver-lead mines could get  as good freight rates on the product of a smelter as is now given  smelters operated by the owners of  Boundary district gold-copper ores.  In this fight, if there is one on, the  silver-lead mine owners will have  all the people behind thera, and the  people when combined generally  win put.

Gillett for aldermen ia  the East ward, it must be admitted  that political or social or religious  or . fraternal  considerations   were  not allowed to sway them in the  least. The men endorsed are not  all of one political faith or believers  in one religions creed; they do not  all belong to one fraternal society  and are not of the one social set.  But tliey are all of the one way of  thinking on questions that are of  great importance to the City of  Nelson. They are all firm believers  iu the town, and all,want to see it  maintain the lead it has gained in  the race for supremacy. Nolson  has been started on the right track,  and it will be the aim of Harold  Selous and John Hamilton and  Thomas Madden and John Paterson  and John.A. Irving aud William G.  Gillott, if elected aldermen, to keep  it ou the track that it has been  started on. While any elector has  the right to offer for the honor, yet  it might be for the best interests of  the people as a whole to allow the  six gentlemen above named to be  elected aldermen by acclamation.  It would show rivals that Nelson  can be as ono on any occasion when  the best interests of the people are  at stake.  The Sandon Paystreak is being  jumped ou by a portion of the provincial press, because of its editorial utterances ou questions religious. The Paystreak is edited by  a young man who has a bright and  vigorous mind, .and it is evidently  all his own. Its editorials are well  written", and if read without prejudice should set the reader to thinking, even if the sentiments expressed are not always in accord  'with the, accepted views of the  public. There is plenty of room in  the province for young aud vigorous" writers like William Mac-  Adams of. the Sandon Paystreak.  The Commonwealth .of, Australia is made up of- a number of  ttates whose people have widely  different view's on questions of  political economy. The state of-  New South Wales is for free trade,  while the state,of Victoria is for  protection. In Victoria the Liberal  party stands- for protection; in  New South Wales the Conservative  party favors free trade. The Labor  party is strong in-both tho above-  named states, but it is divided-on  the issue of Free Trade versus Protection. The people' of, Australia  have shown themselves to be both  self-reliant and progressive, and  there need be no gieat anxiety as  to their future. They have given  Canada and the. United States  pointers on self-government, and  both countries, have profited by  adopting laws that were first given  trial in Australia.

Yet there are people who  still believe there is no mineral  north of the international boundary line.   TO THE ELECTORS OF 1. ELSON:  At tho request of a number of electors, I have  decided lo olFt'r my.elf as a cmdidate for mayor  al the coming civic elections. I have served a->  alderman two years of Iho four during  which tli-* city has been conducting its own affairs, anil my record whilo in the council on the  questions thai are now the mostimportant issues  before the people of tho c.ty i* such as will bear  insp"o'ion.  1 believe that the city has valuable assets in tho  water and electric light systems, and whilo in  the council r did everything possible to safeguard  theso asset**; and if elected mayor no act or vote  of mine wiil be in favor of allowiug any outside  corpoi ate interest to become a competitor with  iho city in the business of electric lighting, a  bti-incsB in which the city has already invested  $70,000.  While in tho council in 1SH7, I voted in favor* of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all contracts,  and that principle was carried out in both letter  and spirit. I see no reason to change my views  on that question now. .And I believe, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that tho city can get as good value for the  money spent 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  cily should not pay the same rate of wages and  work mon the same number of hours as prevails  iu private enterprises. ' ���  1 am inLivorof giving Ihe busines* and property interests every safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe lhe tiro department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent, wit h the  revenues of the ci'y.  Nelson should bo kept io advance of its rivals,  and everything possible must' be done to induce manufacturing enterprise * to locate here,  for it is tho payrolls _tha(r_]*uild 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 tolerant. 1 belioye that this  spirit of toleration should be'continued, and I  will if elected mayor'do no act to abridge or curtail (he rights or privileges of one class of our  citizens merely because another class may have  different views." -  - - -  Tho ci'y Jias made a start in permanent street  improvements, and I am in. favor of continuing  these improvements as fast as possible, with due  regard lo the revenues of the cily.  If elected mayor, lam in a position and will-  pledge myself lo devote my lime to the conduct.  of the city's business.  FRANK FLETCHER.  Nelson, December loth, 1900.

LAY; Manast-.   * "1  Greenwood, Jauuary 0.~[Speeial  to The Tribune.]���Interest during  the past week was lagging in municipal politics until yesterday, when  it became known that the Greenwood Licensed Victuallers' Association were about to take a hand in  the.game. The association is i'nan-  cially and numerically strong, for a  place of this size, and its members  believe that its combined vote and-  what thoy could control, thrown  one way or the other, may mean  the election or ..defeat of a candidate.    The meeting held  yesterday  ' attho Hotel Armstrong was largely  attended and unanimous. ��� After  its close the members for a time  were silent as  to  its  objects-,  but  ' finally the .correspondent of Tiie  TmBUNK was informed- that the  gathering was held lot* the purpose  of discussing the civic election. A  resolution was passed that a circular'should be sent, ai'tei'-uomiuation  . day,,to each of the candidates for  municipal honors, ln this' letter  candidates w ill bo-flatly asked to  express ' themselves , as to their  opinion whether this city should  be ru"u-*as an-open town," "similar to  C rand Porks and Phoenix, or not.  Bluntly it means will gambling be  allowed or not! The hotel men  poiut to the fact that other places  are run open, while this city for  nearly a year has been subject to  the dictation of a board of license  commissioners, which one day allows open gambling, and the next  forbids it*. This state of uffairs was  notorious early in the 3*_ar,.-\vhen  one Mike. Doneen, a Spokane  gambler, came to this city with a  complete outfit of roulette wheels,  and for a monthly -consideration  obtained from tbe city what was iu  reality a monopoly on the gambling       privileges,       and V* hotel  ���menlackingthepull���could^notruu  any gambling devices without practically getting "Red Mike" to install the machines. Then "the howl  went up and public gambling ceased.  Tlie consequence, license holders  claim, is that money is being diverted from Greenwood to other places  where gambling is . allowed, and  they say unless this state is remedied, miners and other who should  by reason of its location make this  city their'rendezvou.**, go elsewhere.  At tho same time they are adverse  to allowing au outsider to have any  special monopoly of the games of  chance, and desire that all should  be treated alike. Well, its up to  tho future officeholder to say yea  or nay to the circular. \  The deal whereby the ownership  of the franchises held by the Greenwood Electric Company and the  Greenwood & Phoenix Tramway  Company has passed into other  hands" means much for this city and  the district at large. The assurance  has beeu given out that that 'portion of the tramway line between  Greenwood and Phoenix is to be  built this year. When completed  the line, tapping as it will the  camps of Wellington, Phoenix, Sum -  mit and Dead wood for the ore tonnage, must become a strong rival of  the- Canadian Pacific railway. It  will lessen the cost of carrying ore  from the mines to the two smelters  on Boundary creek, and mine-Owners will bo thankful accordingly.  ;The route between this city and  Phoenix has already been surveyed,  and the tramway scheme 'pronounced practicable. Its construction and equippmenfc will cost not  less than $1,000,000.. ���-..������ ....:. ;  Auother big undertaking is also  on foot. Application is to be made  at the next session of the provincial legislature for a charter for a  company   that   proposes    among  -other things to drive a tunnel from  BRANCHES OF THE BANK IN CANADA  Ontario.

SAVINGS BANK  DEPARTMENT:  Present  rate  snap has enabled the doors of the  rink to be thrown open at last,  muck to the delight of its patrons.  From present indications the  attendance at the rink bids fair to  exceed that of last season. So far  no hockey club has been for,med,  and it, is doubtful if Greenwood  will have a team this winter, though  there is "some talk of a Boundary  hockey team being formed so as to  participate in. the league matches  with Rossland and Nelson. If such  is to be.the case P.O. McArthur, of  Phoenix - will doubtless be the  captain.  After much persuasion on the  part of the Phoenix. Board of  Trade, the Canadian Pacific railway  have installed a passenger. service  between Eholt and Phoenix. A  coach is attached to the ore train  and comes down from Phoenix to  meet the east-bound regular.. main  line train, returning with passengers  from the west-bound. " To, those  bound for Phoenix it means the  saying of much time, as heretofore  passengers were forced to travel on  to Greenwood and then to take the  stage to the end of their journey.  The new Presbyterian church  was opened for public service today.  It is a commodious frame structure.  Corrected. Returns.  Kamloops Sentinel.

GRANGE  V.  HOLT,  "Manager Nelson Branch  a point ou Boundary creek to tap  the ore deposits of Phoenix camp at  depth. Phoenix is situated at an  .-elevation 2025-feetabove the creek,"  and such a tunnel.would ouly have'  to be driven some 10,000 feet iu a  straight line to be under the center  of the townsite of Phoenix. Hal-  latt&"Shaw are solicitors for the  applicants,, .whose names they refuse to divulge.  Local mining operators are feeling quite buoyant over the outlook  for the new year. They point to  the fact that the close' of 1900  brought with it.an evidence on the  part of outsiders to become interested in tho district by reason of  the numerous options and bonds  secured in the closing months of  the year. Certain it is that the  blowing in of the-two new smel-  -ters,-now-^i'apidly-nearing_cqmple*L.  tion, will stimulate property "'owners, at least near by, to get their  holdings iu shape for shipment.  This effect is already appreciable  in the resumption of work ou.such  claims as the Emma in Summit  camp, the Ah There in Deadwood  camp, and the Yellowstone iu Skylark camp.- There need be little  fear that either of the local reduction works will suffer from lack  of ore. When tho Greenwood  smelter starts operation its bins  will have not less than 8000 tons;  and ore could now be, received at  tho pyritic smelter were it not that  lack .of timber has "delayed the  building of the ore spur into the  building. Merchants, too, report a  marked improvement in trade,  especially with the surrounding;  camps.  Snow has been falling quite  heavily the past few days and  sleighing is now-in order.

After the game a meeting will be held for the purpose of  discussing the program for tlie next  few weeks. Tlie hockey men wish  to secure games with Rossland,  Greenwood, Sandon, Itevel_toke and  other outside clubs. The material  .available for a local team is excellent and a strong seven can be  turned out.  A couple of large mountain lions  are prowling about the Highland  mine, annoying the miners and  making it unsafe to venture'"'out  after dark. One of the men recently  met a conger on the wagon road  and claims that the animal was of  enormous size. Another chap was  treed by the pair, but escaped. Apparently this is an excellent opening  for some of Nelson's big game  hunters.  The appeal in the case of Lanagan  vs. White recently tried in Washington has been decided in favor of  the defendant, and ah application  to reopen the matter was refused,  making the victory for the defence  complete. The defendant is Bruce  White of Nelson who is identified  with P. Burns and W. J. Wilson in  Washington mining properties. The  suit involved the title to a quarter  interest in the Happy Thought  mineral claim near Bossburg.  Herbert L. Fuller ton, a -well-  known commercial man now representing a coast firm, has arrived in  Nelson and purposes making this  city his permanent headquarters.  Eventually the company may  establish a warehouse here.  -Alderman Wilson returned on  Saturday from the Boundary country. He states 'that business " is  steadily looking up; and that the  commercial and mining interests  are" looking forward to a prosperous  year.  The level of the lake, is some  inches above the point reached at.  this time last year. Heavy rains  and thaws In December raised the  water considerably and the effect  of this has not passed off. yet..  The opening of the boating season will probably see the addition  of at least three launches to Nelson's mosquito fleet. Work on captain J.- W. Troup's -launch "is progressing, the first coats of paint  having been applied and the flooring commenced,  ' George Roy, superintendent of  the Silver Hill mine, is in the* eity  having a badly torn hand treated.  On Saturday morning a young cat  ran amuck in the boarding -house  and attacked one of the dining-  room girls. Mr. Roy grasped the  feline by the neck, whereupon it  clinched its teeth through the fingers of his left hand. The cat was  killed before its grip could be released. The wound has been cauterized, and is exceedingly painful.  Born: On Saturday, the wife of  S. Y. Brockman, Hume addition, of  a sou.  V. Anderson of Revelstoke is a  guest at - the Hotel Phair. Mr.  Anderson is assistant roadmaster'  _for"thre"e"ro'ain"Ji*;ie^"divisions:"of-the-  O. P. 11. and has been spending several weeks along the Northern  Pacific aud Great Northern roads  for the purpose of studying the  methods employed ou the big  American roads and tho condition  of the employees. His conclusion  is that the C. P. R. men are as well  off as any of the railroad men over  the line. The scale of wages is  about the same, considering the  cost of living, and while the Americans have less work to do for the  same money than C. P. R. men,  they are much more liable to discharge when a superior official has  a favorite to place.  C. A. Bell of Montreal has arrived in the city to take the post  of traveling auditor on the Kootenay and Boundary divisions of the  C. P. R. The company will now  have two auditors traveling on the  division, Mr. Bell's colleague being  Mr. Miller, who is well known in  Nelson.  ""The contractor on the K.-W.-O.  block expects to have the building  completed from top to bottom by  February 1st, or earlier. The top  story, on which most of the work  remains to be done, is divided into  28 rooms, which will be let en bloc  for living apartments.  "The-public schools resume work  for the miflwinter session this  morning, and after a- day or two,  when the process of arranging  classes anew is completed, the  work will proceed in the usual  routine. St. Joseph's school also  recommences work today, and the  classes will be held in the old building, pending the completion of the  new school.  The hew engine  P. R. depot is now  and the facilities  building are. very  house at the C.  in constant use,  afforded in the  welcome to the  engine crews which have had ex  perience with .the old building that  was erected to accommodate four  locomotives at most. The new  building is modern in every respect, and with the addition of the  machine shop, to be erected in the  spring, will be thoroughly equipped,  in every department. The coal  pockets now under way will then  be completed.  Henry Fry Macleod, of the law  -firm of Galliher.$ Wilson, has been  requested to go to Victoria by attorney-general Eberts, in order to  make himself acquainted with the  routine work of the land registry  office. Mr. Macleod was an applicant for the position of registrar  of the Nelson land registry office,  and the request to go to Victoria  can only mean that he is to receive  the appointment. Mr. Macleod  leaves for Victoria tonight.  On Saturday, H. S. Forrest, Dominion railroad inspector, went over  the Balfour extension with J. G.  Sullivan, C. P..R. engineer. Both-  gentlemen went through to Trail at  night. Yesterday a further test of  the uewslip'..at Procter was made;  and the final "trial is to" be' made  shortly.   ��� -   ' ������  The directors of the Nelson public library-have made arrangements for the holding of a fancy  dress carnival in the skating rink  on Wednesday evening, January  9 th. A band will be in attendance  and refreshments will be served.  The directors are anxious that all  who attend shall go in costume in  order that the success of the carnival may be assured. The admission fee for those in costume is 25  cents, and for those nob iu costume  50 cents. .'.    ,..,,,       ,  Another shipment of 100 tons of  ore from'the London. Consolidated  property, the Silver Hill, arrived at  Nelson on Saturday.   This is the  second shipment since the sleighing  commencedi'ancl is the first installment   of   the' 3000  to   5000   tons  which   the,-company   proposes to  ship this winter.  - At. the regular meeting of the  Nelson Miners' Union, held on Saturday evening, ib was  decided to  hold a ball at>some date yet .'to be  fixed.        _1__]_________  May Supply St Paul's Pulpit.  Rev. Dr. Wright of Portage la  Prairie occupied the pulpit of St.  Paul's Presbyterian church again  yesterday.'
