And  is Now  Under Bond  to  Rustling  Young Mining
Operators  of Nelson.
A mining deal was closed .hero
yesterday whereby J. J I.- and .T. L.
Vaustone of Nelson acquired a
lease and bond on the Poui'tli of
.Tuly group, a well-known Coffee
creek property owned by James
Fitzpatrick-of Ainsworth. The
Fourth of «Tuly lies 3A- miles south
of Ainsworth and has about 1500
feet of workings, upon it. The ore
is almost a dry product, carrying
excellent values.' A considerable
tonnage of ore is now ready for
stoping. The Messrs. Vanstone will
place a gang of mon at the mine on
Monday, and J. IT. Vanstono will
be in charge as manager. Tho
lesees intention is to ship considerable ore from the property "this
winter aud develop extensively
next summer, their bond covering a
period "of two years. Tlie Fourth
of July was originally staked ten
years ago, and the mau who staked
it. sold the claim for enough to take
him back East, where he bought a
farm and settled down.
Republic Ore Assayed.
.Toe Duhamel, owner of the .Republic claim on Forty-nine creek, is
the authority for the statement
that a sample of ore taken across
tlie face of the wide~ ledge on his
claim, went $12 20 in gold.- A fraction ' adjoiniug the Republic has
been added to.the claim. Duhamel
leaves' this'! morning with several
meu to recommence work on the
property. On the Paradise, "ad-
*.ioinipgvtUe*-Re!Pl'M is*
-working steadily.'"' The -tunnell'is' in"
,,,-about forty feet on" the vein. - The
.ore.encountered is thirty inches in
•width, estimated to average close
*to $40.   _,        ._
A Morning Mountain Strike.
A rich strike is reported from tho
Royston group on Morning mountain. It is stated that two feet of
fine ore was stri.ck yesterday, from
•which an assay of $240 was had.
The group is owned aud operated
by the Royston Gold Mines, Limited, of Nelson, which was formed
a few months ago to take over the
claims. .Since then development
work has been carried on steadily.
Tlie group was surveyed last week
and proves to be one of the largest
on the hill.   - ___\	
An Iron Bonanza.
AV. P. Teetzel and J. C. Devlin of
Tegison have located claims near
sfe^r-Tunction, twelve miles west
mMf^^r^ndi both expect to be
^^■^i^^-fP^^live on their in-
co^fe^i/f ltg|?ort time. The
claims aW'-^^Cffi-outain deposits
of iron ore suitcS^i for fluxes. Such
ore is* in good demand at both the
Nelson and Trail smelters. These
smelters have been getting their
supply from a mine near Kamloops,
but if the .Teetzel-Devlin ore proves
good the supply will be obtained
here at a saving.of $3 a ton. The
locations aro near the track of the
Canadian Pacific, and a gang of
men are at work getting out ore
for shipment. •
Highland Actively at Work.
II. Stevenson, manager of the
Tariff property at Ainsworth, is in
the city today. -He states that the
only mino working actively in the
camp is the Highland. The Tariff
has been shut down" for some time,
the Highlander closed down* recently, and the camp wears an air
of repose. It is " stated, however,
that the Ainsworth section* will be
very active in the spring, by whicli
time a number of deals/now under
way will be closed up.

On the Chapleau Mine.
The discovery of a vein of ore at
the Chapleau mine, supposed to be
an   entirely    different   ledge   and
.-quality of rock, may prove to be of
the greatest importance to the future of the property. When Mr.
Chapleau, the commercial mauager
of the Chapleau company, came
down to Nelson the other day he
brought with him samples of the
new vein taken at the point where
the exploration tunnel crosscut the
ore. These specimens were sent to
the assay "office, and last night the
report was received. Ono sample
went $27.00, two were over $70, and
two were over $80. Mr. Weyl does
not care to father the statement
that the sampies he took are an
accurate average of the entire ore
body, because he was in a hurry at
•the time the specimens were taken
'.out.'-''Further information will be
•to hand later when the new ore
.body is more thoroughly explored.
arid sampled. ■."Should the ore be as
valuable as would seem to be indicated by the,,assays made yesterday the strikVwill very materially
enhance the value of the Chapleau
property.    -

to a new concern, the Rossland
Proprietory Company, an offshoot
.of the parent syndicate. The property in question • consists of the
Nelsou No. 2 and Derby claims,
which have the advantage of being

..md thereby of extra value for real
ostate purposes.   The new owners

ing the mineral resources of the
ground until spring, when work on
the Spit/.er claim which immed-
iately adjoins will be sufficiently
advanced to give some idea of what
.may exist on .the Derby and Nelson,
the vein on which the owners of
the Spitzer are now working is running east and west through the
other two claims with the additional
advantage, from the Rossland
Proprietory Company's standpoint,
of a dip to the north. The company has already had offers to dispose of the whole of the lots plotted
on the surface, but only a few have
been disposed of. The government
has purchased one block of half a
dozen lots on which they will erect
a public school building. It is the
company's intention, also, to erect
a number of neat residences on the
ground next spring.

disagreement has arisen between
the representatives in Europe of
the Philippine island insurgents.
Agoncillo, whom Aguinaldo ordered
to Hongkong to direct the operations of the junta there, has revolted, and refuses to go to Hong
kong or give up his post in Paris' to
Dr. Apaciblo. The latter Aguinaldo
ordered to go to Canada from Hongkong to watch the United States
elections. . He was then ordered to
replace Agoncillo. The disputants

Before the Average Newspaper Reader
Can Understand What It
Is all About.
The Associated Press sometimes
sends news in fragments. The first
fragment regarding'the following
was lost at Vancouver or in- trans-'
mission between Vancouver and
Nelson. The fragment that got
through reads as follows: ''Marseilles. (Add Bulletin.) The attachment of the line was due to the
heroic efforts of twenty-five -fishermen, who attempted what appeared
to. be a foolhardy task. Their flat-
bottomed craft was tossed about
like a straw on the,waves. ^ Several
times it appeared -as" though the
small craft was lost, but it finally
got,into a current.which carried it
to the starboard." side of the Russie's
-.bp.w." A"line*'was then thrown on
"board "the^wr'eck. "The ._aptain"*,of
the Russie, standing on-the bridge,
shouted: 'We,have not lost heart,
and have confidence in you; but be
quick!' A moment later amid great
excitement, among the spectators
ashore, the line was seen to part.
The fishermen then got a line on.
board of the stranded vessel. They
then returned to the beach, where
hundreds of willing hands pulled
their boat high and dry. Later
the line again parted, causing much
anxiety, as the sea was becoming
rougher. Then the same fishermen
made anether attempt to reach the
Russie iu their flat-bottomed boat.
On the first attempt they were capsized into the surf and the men
were thrown back on the beach.
They made a fresh effort with a few
new comrades, and the same crew
again succeeded in getting a line on
board the Russie. : This time its
security was ensured by a line
being attached to several rafts between the wreck and the shore."
Has Withdrawn the Proposal.
Washington, .Tanuary 10.—As
some of the foreign powers do not
look with favor upon the proposition of the United States recently
made as to the withdrawal of
certain features of the negotiations
from Pekin to Washington or some
other capital, and other powers
hesitate to decide the question, the
president has deemed it advisable
to withdraw tho proposal, and has
directed the representatives of the
United States abroad to so inform
the different governments.
Bank Robbers Sentenced.
Windsor, Ontario, January 10.—
Matthes and Seaman, the two men
arrested recently in Detroit for circulating notes stolen from Molson's
bank at the time of the Napanee
robbery, were sentenced today to

Of the  United. States  to Shift the
Seat of Negotiations From
-■*  "Pekin.  :'
Paris, .January 10.—As the result
of inquiries in authoritative quarters, the Associated Frfess is given
the following statement in regard
to the Chinese situation: "The
Chinese plenipotentiaries signed the
joint note yesterday, thus concluding the preliminary stage of the
negotiations." It: was-added that
this important step was insignificant compared' with the difficulties
to be met with betweefrthe powers
themselves, whose clashing interests
will have full play in the coming
discussions. The United States' proposal to shift the seat of negotiations finds no favor in'the European
chancellories. The reasons are given
for this opposition:'.  !    .    '
First.—Ic is considered a great
mistake to transfer, thenegotiations
from.China, where all/the information is at hand respecting the situation, and the feeling".among the
Chinese themselves, and more especially* regarding the (conditions' of
trade and commerce- at which" the
negotiations -will be chiefly "concerned.        .-■■}":■'
^Second.—The United States commerce with-. China\ is . eompara-,
tiyely small, when; compared with
that of- several "*"* other countries,
therefore the United;States lis 'not
entftled'to expect the^ negotiations,
to be carried on at'Washington. „
y The third and '''most* delicate
reason advanced is' that the European powers have not"felt sufficient
confidence- that the .United States
government~might -'not/find'* itself,
influenced -.in the- negotiations at
Washington^ by.-^the pressure - -pf-
1 interests,ha,ving,an^*iye "t<x*the,ex-%,
ploitations of. China. v-I.,"" ."•; '
The attitude of some of the
powers, moreover, - is swayed by
other motives in opposing the
United States proposal. . Great
Britain, for example, which seems
to be the most strongly antagonistic, has probably taken into con-_
sideration the United" .States attitude towards the Clayton-Bulwer
treaty. The feeling-Jiere favors
Shang-Hai, if any change is made,
as it is pointed out that Shang-Hai
is the most important trade center
in China, and moreover that the
southern viceroys, who are favorable to foreigners and anxious to
further trade, could make their influence felt. Failing Shang-Hai,
Berlin or Paris are likely to be
"chosen; The_enorraous—British-interests are in favor of the choice of
London, but it is improbable that
the other powers will agree to this.
There is no reason to suppose
that Russia will withdraw from the
joint negotiations. The treaty she
has concluded with China, concerns
her special interests in regions contiguous to her territories, but she
has great political interests to defend and further in the joint conference, which will bristle with
obstacles to a speedy settlement.
Russia aims chiefly, at a wide expansion of her political influence;
Great Britain wants to open the
Chinese empire to her commerce,
and at the same time strengthen
her political foothold; the United
States, apparently, will be devoted
to securing commercial advantages;
while France and Germany will desire to increase their trade generally and their political influence in
certain provinces. The struggle
between these conflicting designs
will be bitter, and, in any case, will
greatly protract the negotiations.
One thing which Great Britain and
the United .States wish secured is
the raising of theprohibitionwhich
now exists'against foreigners acquiring landed interests.:; *
Impossible of Acceptance.
Shang-Hai, January 10.—A dispatch from Sian Fu (where the Chinese court is located) to a. native
newspaper says: "Some of the
clauses of the conditions for peace
are impossible of acceptance, consequently the emperor and empress
have telegraphed Liu Kun Yi, the
viceroy of Nankin, and Chang Hi
Tung, the viGeroj*- of Mankow, to
proceed immediately to Pekin and
confer with the foreign ministers
and Chinese commissioners in an
attempt to secure a moderation of
the obstructive conditions. They
have been instructed if they are
unable to proceed to Pekin, to propose a suitable meeting place for
the ministers elsewhere.

Berlin, January 10.—A special
dispatch from Pekin to the Lokal
Anzeiger late this evening says:
"The Chinese court has abandoned
its objections to the joint demands of the powers, and it is believed that prince Ching and Li
Hung Chang will sign the joint
note in a few days. It is i-eported
that a telegraphic authorization
will reach them from .Sian Fu to
use-the imperial seal, which is under guard at Pekin."

Berlin, January 9.—The war office has received the following dispatch from count von Waldersee:
"Pekin, January 9.—The fortress of
No Pu, which was stormed January
3rd, was the headquarters of the
newly organized bands of Boxers.
Over 1000 had mobilized in the district, and they were planning to

kilometres northwest of Pekin.
Colonel Panet, after extremely
severe marches, over by-paths and
through high mountains, stormed

defended by ten guns, and from six
hundred to one. thousand men.
Having protected: the mines, the
column is returning in extended
order through Yen Sing."

Vancouver, January 10.—
[Special to The Tribune. |—Alderman Townley was elected mayor
today by a majority of 350 over
alderman .Tames McQueen. Townley
led in each of the five wards in the
city, his highest majority being in
Ward 4, which was supposed to be
McQueen's stronghold, Townley's
plurality there being over a hundred. McQueen was-the special
candidate of the Prohibitionists, the
Religious, and the Moral Reformers. ' He was pledged to prohibit "gambling and to place
close restrictions upon - every form
of vice. Townley, while disclaiming,
that he was in favor of a wide-open,
town, was - nevertheless strongly
supported by the saloon element
and' the sporting fraternity. He
was the special nominee of the business men and of the progressive
element in civic affairs. McQueen
is a man of independent fortune

It    Will    Take    Advantage   of   the
Power Possibilities of the Old
Welland   Canal,
LoNDOaV, January 10.—The negotiations toward the formation of
another American iron and steel
combine, which havo been carried
on recently in London, reached a
point this evening where their culmination   became   practically   as
sured. The companies intending to
amalgamate are the Canadian Steel
Co., the Lake Superior Power Co.,
the American Steel Co.,* the Otis
Steel Co., the Pittsburg Steel Co.,
and the Wellman >Seaver Co.
of Cleveland. Combined with
these, when the deal is
completed, will be several English
firms, which will take part in
the enterprise, financially and
commercially. It is the intention
of the projectors to erect plants at
various places, with the Welland
canal as an outlet. The object is
to minimize expense, and acting
with the English co-operators to
secure markets here and elsewhere.
The project may be termed an Eng-
lish-American-Canadian combination, to take advantage of existing
opportunities. It is freely discussed in the English press. The
reason for holding the meeting in
London was that English capital
and trade are desired. The capitalization has not been decided

The President Insists.
Washington, January 10.-—The
proposition submitted by the president to transfer the negotiations
of the questions of indemnity and
I'evision of commercial treaties to
some other place than Pekin was
sion of the Chinese negotiations as
a whole by separating, those still
requiring considerable moderation
from those already determined. As
some of the powers do not look
with favor upon this separation,
and others hesitate to decide the
question, the president has deemed
it advisable to direct the diplomatic representatives abroad to
press the proposition, and to inform the governments to which tho
proposition was addressed.
No Umbrage Taken.
London, January 11.—There is
no reason to believe that the American proposal to transfer the Pekin
negotiations to Washington has
given umbrage in auy quarter, says
the Vienna correspondent of the
Times, siuee the suggestion
does not appear to have
been prompted by selfishness
toward the European powers.
They have had more experience of
diplomacy than the United States,
and know that these tend to reveal
aud emphasize the difference of
opinion, which in the case of China
they are particularly desirous of
avoiding. --.'-"
Boers Seem to 'be Successful.
London, January 11. — "Five
thousand Boers supposed to be
treking east from Vryburg," says
the Cape Town correspondent of
the Daily Mail, "are now making
their way into the heart of Cape
Colony. The supposition is that
they have captured several small
garrisons on the way."

Rome, January 10.—Two slight

P. P. for. West Yale.  "Dannis  is old   enough to have a  Past, but a town that has only been  .on the map for a year  had better  confine ��� itself   entirely   to "taking  Glimpses into the Future.  "McQueen and Raw Gold!" was a  rallying cry of one of the factions  in the municipal contest iu Vancouver. The" candidate of the faction  is named McQueen and he favored  putting an export duty on what  ho calls "raw gold." McQueen is  said to be sane and .a man that does  not indulge in stimulants.  The   West  Light Company of  The premier of British Columbia,  hs becomes tho rank of a province  that leads as a producer of natural  wealth, has gone East in a private  car.   Kootenay Power &  Rossland want  not only ail the mill-sites along  Kootenay river, but they want all  the water iu the river as well.  They object to the City of Nelson  getting a water record of 1000  inches. .  Op the 1421 inmates of penitentiaries in Canada 250 cannot  read or write, 90 can read only, and  1078 can read and write. Only 2  of the 1424 are Congregationalists  and 3 professors of Christianity as  it is understood by the Jews-  A "Subsoriber" and a "Politician" at Kaslo want The Tribune  to inform them when the I. next session of the legislative assembly, is  to be called.

As interest grows in the project  for enlisting 1000 recruits in Canada  for ���'��� Baden-Powell's constabulary  the number of applicants fOr vacancies increases. - In Nelson about 15  likely looking men have been attracted by the prospect of active  service and good'pay in the new  corps, and if instructions were issued to recruit here, it is probable  the number would be doubled or  trebled in a day or two. From the  present outlook it seems as though  the Canadian government does not  see its way clear to expend the  heavy sum necessary to take 1000  men to South Africa when all danger to the empire is averted, while  tlie War Oflice appears to think the  Canadians should be delivered in  South Africa free of charge as it  were. The red tape necessary to  adjust a difference of opinion such  as this is so-'tedious that the constabulary is likely to lose a thousand lusty Canucks, though some  are likely to pay their own passages out and enlist on  the  ground.  Draw on Nelson for Talent.  The Vancouver Province says  "J. C. T. Crofts has returned to  Nelson after installing the new 500  horse-power boilers of the B. C.  Electric Railway Company." Mr.  Crofts of Nelson is called on to install boilers in Vancouver; Mr.  Riblet of Nelson is called on to  build tramways in Peru ; and Mi*.  Pearson of Nelson, is sent for to  lead a party of explorers in Africa.  Nelson is long on talent.  Advertising Canada.  All the best papers on the Pacific  The Similkameen Star "has issued    coast are advertising the greatness  fk very creditable appearing Twen- j of Canada. "The Mining and Engi  neering Review of San Francisco  says: "Canada is coming. forward  with great strides as a gold producer, and the Canadians are vigorously agitating 'for the establishment of a Dominion mint. At the  present time United States gold  coins are used as the basic money  of the Dominion for a bank reserve  and the like. Canadians naturally  feel that they want a basic coin of  their own."  Will Retain Present Prices.  Toronto, January 10.���The Canadian Packers' Association today decided to retain the present scale of  prices. .          TO THE ELECTORS Of NELSON:  At the request of n number of electors, I havo  decided to offer raytolf ns a candidate for mayor  at the coining civic elections. I have- served as  alderman two years * of ��� the - four ���- during  which the citv has been conducting its-own affairs, and uiy record whilo in tho council on tho  questions that are now the most Important issues  beforo the people of the city is such as will bear  inspection.    '  1 believo that the city has valuable assets in Iho  water and electric light systems, and while in  the council I did everything possible to safeguard  these assets; and if elected: mayor no act or voto  of mino will bo in favor of allowiug any outside  corporate interest-to become a competitor with  the city in :lho business of electric lighting, a  business in which the city has* already invested  570,000.  While in the council in 1S9"; 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 ��nd*wv: And I believe, further,  that'with competent foremen and superintendence that the city can get as- good value for tho  money spent by having the greatbulk of its work  doho by day's labor��� as'.by the .contract system,  and no good reason can, bo advanced why the  city should notpay the same rato of wages and  work men tho same number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises.  I nm in favor of giving Iho business nnd property interests every safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe the fire department should bo  mado as efficient as possible, consistent with the  rovenuos of the ci'y.  Nelson should be kept in advance of its rivals,  and everything possible must be done to induce manufacturing enterprise * to locat*) here,  for it is the payrolls that build up tho cities of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the  people bf Nelson are tolerant. I believe that this  spirit of toleration should.be continued, and I  will if elcsted mayor do no act to abridge or curtail the rights or piivileges of one 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 as fast as possible, with duo  regard lo tho revenue-** of tho city.  If elected mayor, I am in a position and will  pledge'myRelf to devote my time to the conduct  of the city's business.  FRANK FLETCHER.  Nelaon, December 15th. 1900.

There is a difference of opinion as
to whether or not the water rates
at Nelson are fair and reasonable.
Thr Trihunr contends that the
rates here are as low as present
conditions warrant! and it is
always willing to give any facts
that are presented to sustain its
contention. The, following statistics, prepared .by mayor Comstock
of Spokane, wore printed in the

. Spokane has a population of

7000. The owner or occupant of a
4-room house, with bath-room and.
water closet and lawn sprinkler, in
Nelson, pays $19.no a year for
water; but if advantage is taken of
the best discount given for prompt
payment, he only pays ,$15.00. In
Spokane, for the same sized house
and like conveniences the rate is
$L9.50 a year. A six-room house in
Nelson with all conveniences pays
.$25.50; and. if the discount"is taken
advantage of, $20.^0 a year. In
.Spokane the rate is $22.50. Apparently, water rates are lower in
cNelson than in Spokane. The following are the rates charged in
cities in the United States, all of
which have populations: rauging
from 100,000 upwards. The rates
include one bath, one closet and

The average of these nine cities
is a yearly rate of .$15.(50, which is
exactly the Nelson rate, with the
discount off, for a 4-room house
aud all conveniences. The average
for 12-room houses in the nine
cities is a yearly rate of. .f25.90.
Nelson has no rate for. 12-room
houses; but the rate for ' 6-room
houses and over is $25.50, or, with
the discount off, $20.40. These
figures'would'indicate that Nelaon
had better not change the existing
water rates until its population increases so as to warrant a decrease.

entertained of making it real. But
this is an. era of Research into
racial origins- when, for instance,
we find a number of specialists adducing evidence from laws of "succession, folklore, armehair_customs
and what not, to prove that existing
British institutions strike their roots
down-through Teutonic invaders
and - their Celtic forerunners to
races that" occupied the soil
ages before. It" would not
be surprising, then, to have
some learned theorirzer elaborate a
theory that many distinctive traits
and customs are of Indian origin.
The way hae, indeed, already been
led in- this direction by a recent.
English writer who attributes the
"grim, sardonic humor" of Americans to '•'early inter-marriage with
the Indians." Another writer upon
racial developments upon this continent, a French-Canadian this
time,-   Edmond de   Nevers,   holds
_that the_Ameriean,_meaning_tli6-
- resident of the United States,
either is an Irishman or is going to
be one. As it is of more importance what people are going to become than what their starting
points were, it may be worth while,
or at least interesting, to consider
this curious theory of M. de Nevers.
He bases it on the contention that*
no immigration except the German
has rivaled the Irish in numbers,
and none in solidarity and influence.
He holds, moreover, that certain
characteristics of the people of the
United States, notably their humor
and their advertising are essentially
Irish. The people of the United
States, he believes, starting with
many Anglo-Saxon traits, are gradually passing over to a distinctly
Celtic type of civilization. Undoubtedly "Anglo-Saxon" is a wholly misleading term to apply to the' people of the United States as a
race, but no more misleading than •
•M.-do Nevers' idea that an aggressive
Celtic spirit is overmastering that
people. In the United States, as in
Canada, thenational spirit is constantly gaining in,.-power. It overmasters, and absorbs any spirit of
race. True as this is of the people
of the United States, even* with
their vast and conglomerate aggregation of races and colors, it is still
truer of the more compact and
united Canadians. We are Canadians first, last, and all the time,
and we are all. the time growing
more Canadian.
into the language of common mor
tals, they mean that ordinary salt
taken  in  proper   proportions  will
make us live longer.   People who
have been in the habit of putting
salt in their porridge every morning   can   now congratulate themselves on having stolen a march on
the undertaker.   However, despite
all the scientific theories of learned
doctors, it is improbable that the
researches of the new century will
discover the elixir of life in salt or
any other combination of elements.
The laws of longevity do not seem
to always conform to the theories of
the   medical   profession.   One old
resilient of Chicago, for instance,
gives credit for having celebrated
his one hundredth birthday to the
fact that he has always been a good
Presbyterian and used tobacco and
whiskey; while an old Irish lady,
who celebrated her one hundredth
anniversary the other day, attributed her good physical condition to
her abstinence from liquor and tobacco and her devotion to tho Catholic faith.    Donald Maclaren of Toronto, who hasseen thelightof three
centuries, saj's he used tobacco very
freely for half a century, and during another half century refrained
from it.    Doctors will have to disagree on his case., In a town in.Indiana lives au old Canadian *nho
was born in St. John's  109 years
ago, and who even now can dance
a jig with the most supple of his
neighbors.    He has 47 grandchildren,  55   great-grandchildren,   and
the chances are he has never worried a moment of his life about microbes and always ate and drank
what was set before him, asking no
questions for conscience sake.- Hundreds of other examples of these
anomalies   in the mode* of living
among centenarians might be given.
The only definite conclusion that
can be drawn seems to be that life
is a great mystery, and the scientists of the new - century, despite
all their lore, will never be able to
supplant Providence by determining just how long.a time may elapse
before we shuffle off" this mortal
"coil.   Anyway probably most of us
live long enough ..fo-r all. practical
-purposes.under the present  system
of Providence.    Tlie  discovery  of
the elixir  of life would  not  be a
blessing to the world.

A.  Campbell, manager of that company, have filed objections with  the government agent at Nelson  against his granting the City of  Nelson a record of water from  Kootenay river. They have been  cited to appear in Nelson on Monday aud ' make their objections  good.  ^ Nelson has 277 telephones in use  aud Rossland has 801, and there is  considerable rivalry between the  central exchanges of the two towns  as to which can make the largest  gain in 1901.   _  Kirkpatrick & Wilson will use  electricity for lighting their new  store in the K.-W.-C. block.  Water users have until 5 o'clock  next Tuesday to pay a quarter's  water rates .and save 10 per cent.  If a year's rate is paid they save 20  . per cent.  * The New Denver Ledge is authority for the.statement that John  Buckley, one, of Sandon's pioneers  aud best-known.hotelmen, has sold  the Clifton house to Pat Murphy  and-Norman . McLellan, and will go  to the Boundary country.  ,. The initial steps toward the Rossland winter carnival for 1901 have  beeu ..taken and the affair is set  down for the middle of February. ���  Yesterday's snow storm delayed  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard train  three hours last night. The last C.  P. R. train reached Nelson at 12:30  o'clock, instead of 10:10, the delay  arising through a wait at. Robson  for steamer .connections froni the  north.  The hockey club had a lively  practice, at . the rink last night.  Sides were chosen and the opposing  teams put up a fast game. The  club practices tonight and on Mon  day, when it is probable that the  team for the game at Sandon will  be selected.  YESTERDAY'   CUBLING.  Several,lively curling games were  played at the rink yesterday. In  tlie afternoon a special match was  arrauged for the benefit of James  Waugh of Kaslo, an old and enthusiastic curler whose opportunities  for engaging in the roarin' game at  Kaslo are limited.

Cornor Baker awl Jofioplilno Slrffi  Peddling Without a License.  M. M. Lemmon is in .the city  lockup for a. breach of the License  by-law. r_emmori came into-the  city a few days ago and started  peddling a patent kitchen .utensil  such as can be secured through any  hardware firm in the city. The fact  was brought to the notice of  they police and Lemmon's arrest  followed. At the police court yesterday he was found guilty of  breaking the law, which requires  to"take out a$50 license. Lemmon  was ordered to procure the necessary license and topay a fine of  $10 with costs. His total asset?,  however, amounted to only $7,  and it looks as' - thoughhe would  have to take the alternative  sentence of 30 days' imprisonment in the provincial jail. The  civic authorities are determined to  enforce the Licence by-law as a  measure of protection to the merchants who are.permaneutly located  in Nelson.     ���*----  and Li Hung Chang have telegraphed the newly appointed, treasurer of the province of Chi Li,  Chung Yiu Shah, to hasten to Pekin  to assist in the negotiations.
