The board has  made a good'start for the year 1901.  Probably outside of the president's address the most interesting  feature of the evening" was the election of officers. Althouglrthe nominations were left open until last  evening no 'new names were submitted. Tlie offices of president,  vice-president and secretary were  not contested for, the officers being  elected by acclamation, but there  was a considerable rivalry for the  council.

The rest of the"* report- contained a synopsisof the work done;  -byVthe   board" during   the   year.  Very little was given concerning the  mining, industry or the volume of  freight being handled in the city as  the date was too  early   to   secure  statistics.     It  stated   that   seven  meetings had been held. During' the  year  the following subjects  have  come before the board, aud many of  its recommendations have been carried out, one instance being tho reduction of the telephones for   business houses to one half the old rate,  accompanied by a decidedly   improved   service;   change of   name  from "South Kootenay" tothe'vNel-  ���son"board-of~trader~revision-~and"  publication   of "bylaws;   improve-!  anents of telophone service and  reduction of rates;   improvements of  mail service   by (I) establishing a  daily mail between Nelson .and Spokane, (2) establishing a postal car  and mail clerk   service   over   the  Crow's Nest Pass Railway,  (3)   establishing a daily mail service between Medicine; Hat   and Nelson;  appointment of delegates to "represent this board at the fourth congress of chambers of commerce of  the   empire and consideration   of  proposed resolutions on matters af-  .. fecting Canadian interests; petition-,  ing the provincial government for a  grant for, opening up a wagon road  from the Columbia river  into the  Fire Valley district; sending a min-:  eral exhibit to the Spokane exposition; advisability of an equitable  bankruptcy law- for the .''Dominion r  and the appointment of delegates  -' to tlie second annual .'.".convention'.of.  the associated boards of trade** of  eastern British.Columbia.   The report also contained several'extracts  from the ; minutes   showing   what  had been done at the various meetings.   Attached was a short note  concerning the growth"and development of the city of Nelson.  Twelve applications for membership were presented and were  unanimously accepted. The new  ���members are as follows: -J.*"'W.  Holms, A. W. Nagle and .T. H. Wilkinson of the Kootenay Wire  Works Manufacturing Company; J.  A. Dewar of the Porto Rico Lumbal' Company; Wa G.

Procter arid Duncan were appointed as  delegates to attend the meeting.  The question of having in the Dominion house a department of mines  created with a representative minister in the cabinet or under_ the  control of a commissioner attached  to one of the existing departments,  came before the meeting and considerable discussion took place. It  was cited that there was already a  department ' of" this nature established; so a committee" was appointed  to draw up a -suitable resolution  concerning the''matter' and report  at the next meeting. The committee consists of Messrs. Fletcher,  Taylor,' Robertson and Fowler."

P. R. bridge  -across-the Columbia���river-at���Robson, was in Nelson yesterday. He  said the work was progressing .as  well as could be expected. All the  piles for the two deep water piers  have beeu driven. The caisson for  oue of these has just been completed and'work upon the other has  been started. The east abutment  is about finished. The oxcav.ating  'for. the land piers \ has been;-dOne  and the stone work-)^ will be  started at brice. The contractor  has three pf ,the C. P. R. barges in  use, and stone for the piers is being  delivered at both sides of the  stream from the slip at Robson.  This allow- a gang of men to. work  upon both land; abutments at the  same time. .A. force of about 75  men is at work, but additional men  will be put piti shortly. The material for the superstructure of-the  bridge will be delivered about April  1st. The water in. the river is  within a foot of low water mark,  which aids greatly in the carrying  on of the work.  Ordered to Protect American Interests.

FOR   THE   STAGNATION  IN   THE  SLOCAN  CAMP.  Transportation  Bates  Were Reduced  on All Ore Consigned to American  - Smelters  on January  1st.  H. E. Macdonnell, assistant gen-  * eral freight agent of the C. P. R.,  has returned from a trip through  the Slocan. To a Tribune reporter  he' said that "the lead question was  settling itself, as one or. two smelr  ters were again making contracts  for Slocan ore, and the* general  opinion appeared to ..be that the  recent action of the American  smelting trust was taken for the  purpose of raising treatment rates.  Mr.- Macdonell does not take  kindly to the attempts which are  being made by the smelter trust to  hold the Canadian Pacific railway  responsible for the unsatisfactory,  conditions which existed in the Slocan early this month. When  shown the Spokane report, that in-*  fluence was being brought to bear  upon the railway company to impose prohibitive rates to American  smelters, Mr. Macdonell replied that  the best reply to such a story was  the circumstance that upon the  first of the "year the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company reduced'  its rate one dollar per .ton upon all  ores consigned to United States-  smelting points. J  , This -reduction was made - solely  in the interests of the mine-owners,'  and applies not only to points'at'  which- the company "has" competition to.in.eet, but at; all points in'-  East Kootenay and'elsewhere where  the company has no "competition."  All agents were 'notified of'* this1 re-'  ductipn on the,1st of January,'*and  the new-'tariff^ -was issued- on the'  ���_rd,*so'thattIiere remained no jus-  ��tifioatio_.-ts._��;^-the ���. iniddle'^of'^the  mouth 'for,-any ~attempts which  were" made! for the purpose of making ifc ..appear - that the Canadian  Pacific -Railway Company was "in  any way responsible for the stagnation-ill the Slocan.  Hope It Will Turn Out a-Mine.  One of the group of claims near  Sandon on which development work;  is being done is called the Donnelly  group. The- work lias in many,  places shown nice ore along the  vein, which is traced for four-fifths  of a mile, and in places tho width  is from 20 to SO feet. The main  working tunnel is .in nearly .300  feet, and in the last hundred feet'  several stringers of ore have been  cut. It is expected that the main  vein~will_beTreached withinanother  hundred feet. The owners.are hopeful that they will have one of the  big mines of the Slocan.  Would Like It Colder.  ' Peter McVeigh of McVeigh Brothers, who have the contract for hauling ore from the Silver Hill mine to  the steamboat landing on Crawford  bay, says the weather for the past  three.or four.days was not quite as  cold as he would like to see it,  speaking from the ore-hauling  point of view. Notwithstanding  the weather, good progress is being  made on the contract.  good progress is being made. The  development is in the shape of tunnelling and drifting., The mine is  showing up weir and the ore is giving good returns. The shipments  range from 850 to 450 tons per week.  To carry on the work more successfully heavy hoists have been installed. The Sullivan group is controlled by a Spokane company, of  which colonel Ridpatli is the principal shareholder.. The company is  contemplating more extensive developments at an early date in the  spring. .It.is said that a spur will  be built from" the .0. P. R., which  now runs to Kimberley, to the property in the near future. This  would be a mile and a half long and  would give tlie mines better shipping facilities. Y      '  ARE THEY THE >E0PLE WHO  Made the' Deal: at Greenwood?  ' About a" week ago the company  that furnished electric light to the  towns of Greenwood and Phoenix,  and who also had a franchise to  build and operate tramways in the  neighborhood of these two towns, dis-  posed of their plant and franchise to  parties whose names could not be ascertained.   It is generally believed  that the "purchasers were the people  who are interested' in the London  &    British  ? Colombia   Goldfields,  whose head officeY.iu British Columbia " is. ati .'Nelson.

A large amount of work'  has   already - been   done   towards  harnessing the power of the Kettle  river at Cascade, there having been  spent already between' $50,000/ and  $100,000, including the350 foot dam,  rock ' flume,   cutting - out right of.  way to Phoenix, etc. . It would now  "appear that the valuable" property  has passed into hands that will lose  no time in completing the work   so  well begun.    It will be a good thing  thing for Cascade and the Boundary in general.  Discussing Insurance Matters.  DEWET THREATENING MINES  CAN DO MORE  DAMAGE THERE  THAN ELSEWHERE.  Arrival of Reinforcements Causes the  People of Cape Colony to. Rest  Better Nights.  Reported Strike of Telluvide.  News of a strike made on a claim  situated about two and a half  miles up the the Lemon Creek wagon road, Slocan City district,  reached Nelson yesterday. It is  said that telluride ore was encountered while running a development  tunnel. Ore of that character is  rare and the discovery may prove  to be of considerable importance.  No Market for Stocks,  The mining stocks market is dull..  Very little stock is being sold, and  there is little or no demand. Why  the market should be so quiet, the  local brokers cannot explain.  Nevertheless it is a well-known fact  that during the months of January  and February of each" year there ia  very little activity in. this branch  of mining.      "  '.

London, January 16.���The important report received from Johannesburg that general Dewet has  crossed the Vaal and joined forces  with the Transvaal commander, if  true, probably means the concentration of 7000 Boers with several  guns, for another big attack. There  is a rumor current in Cape Town  that - several Boer leaders are urging an attack upon the mines. It  has long been understood that general Dewet has been anxious to join  the ^invaders in Cape Colony, and  this rumor may be spread to cover  an' attempt to break southwards.

The bill has been under consideration for over a week, and has been  assailed from many quarters, but  its friends have stood solidly by it  and defeated every amendment to  which the river and harbor committee would not agree. Today  chairman Burton offered a substitute for section 4, which was  adopted. It authorized the president to invite Great Britain to join  -hr-an���international���commissionr  composed of three members from  each country, to report from  time to time upon the conditions  and uses of the waters adjacent to  the boundary line between the  United States and Canada, including all'the waters of the ldkes and  rivers whose waters flow by the St.  Lawrence to the Atlantic ocean,  also the maintenance and regulation  of suitable levels, and of the effect  upon the shores and the waters, and  upon the interests of navigation, by  reason of their diversion from their  natural flow, and to report upon  the measures to regulate such diversions, and to enter into such  agreements and make such recom-  dations as shall best subserve the  interests of navigation. It also  authorized the president to appoint  the United States members of the  commission, and authorized them  to employ experts. Mr. Corliss of  Michigan, remarked that he considered this amendment the most  important provision in the bill.  Only Assessed Owners Vote.

The establishment of such a service would be a  convenience to Nelson, and when  the polls are closed at 4 o'clock this  afternoon there is little doubt but  what the bylaw will have carried  by a good majority. In the East  ward C. E. Beasley will act as poll  clerk, along with returning officer  J. K. Strachan, while R. J. Steel  has been appointed clerk to assist E.  A, Crease in the West ward.

It was identified  two hours later by a woman as the  body of  Michael Weissberger, an  East Side Hebrew,  who   was employed by a jewelry   firm   to   sell,  jewelry on   the   instalment   plan, v  ���The name of the woman who iden-"  tified the   body,   aud "the address'  at' which x the     victim     of     the -  murder had resided, captain - Titus,  head of the detective bureau, fe-  fused  to   disclose.

Yet Reached. ���  London, January 10.���Widely  divergent opinions on the matter of  the Nicaragua, canal are printed  today in the���Daily-Telegraph-and���  the London-Times, which make it  apparent "that this government's  views have not yet been concentrated into a decision. There is no  shadow of doubt that if the opinion  of the foreign office as a department  shall be forwarded at. the : cabinet  meeting on Friday, Great Britain  either will express regretfully her  inability to comply with the United  States senate amendments "to the  Hay-Pauncefote treaty, or)will fail  to take any action whatever. In  the latter case the treaty would  lapse of itself. Various American  dispatches refer pointedly to Washington's growing assumption that  Great Britain will accept tho  amended treaty. According to  rumor here, this is greatly due to  private conversations with lord  Pauncefote some time ago. - Whatever truth there is in the reported  conversations with lord Paiincefote,  and they "are not credited, at the  foreign office, it can be said that  the matter has now gone beyond  the phase where lord - Pauncefote's  views are likely to turn the- scale  one way or the other. Were not  the question regarded from the  broad standpoint of Great Britain's  general policy towards the United  States, it would be safe to say the  senate's amendments would meet  with a prompt refusal, and if that  does occur it will be done with a  full appreciation on the part of  Great Britain of any and"all consequences.   __________  Trying to Settle It Out of Court.

Hue: Cauadian Pacific   Railway.  ���   Company, because it owns and. operates a smelter at Trail, is charged  'with seeking to raise the rates for  treating silver-lead ores and with  standing-in   with    the , American  -Smelter Trust. It is to be presumed  that the Canadian   Pacific people  did .not'get'the smelter   at Trail  without -paying F. Augustus Heinze'  .of Butte, Montana, a fair-price for'  "it; and it is to-be presumed, also,  that having bought and paid - for ���  the smelter,-they- are -trying to operate it at a profit.- What is un-!  fair in such a contention?' To make,  a case against the'\owners of the  Trail smelter, it' must  be shown;  T^tliat^they are,charging a rate-"for)  smelting silver-lead ore in-excess of  what would give them a fair return  on the capital invested. Ifc must  also be shown that the Canadian  Paciftc.railway is discriminating in  favor* of the Trail and American  smelters as against the smelter at  Nelson .in its charges for hauling  ores from the mines." Tun Tribunk  is of opinion that this cannot be  proven in either case.- 'Whatever  may be' the shortcomings of the  Canadian)Pacific���and it has the  shortcomings of many great corporations��� it ./certainly, cannot be  charged with lack of 'enterprise  where it lias competition, and it lias  competition in this section of British Columbia.  . Over iii the States, the pblitici-  nus have been having their innings.  In Pennsylvania, a bitter fight has  been waged against -Matthew 8 tair-  ley Quay. Mr/Quay is'"the leader  of -the''^Republican' party iii the  state, and an element in the party  Jiavo tried to bring about his re-  tirement. They succeeded in defeating his retiu'h to the. United  States senate" last year, but the  legislature that was elected last fall  elected- him senator on Tuesday.  W. A. Clark of. Montana has, at  last, realized his ambition. He was  elected senator; for Montana fdr  the six-year term yesterday. In  Idaho, Fi*ed;Dubois, tho Silver Re-  Ptiblican who 1896 'walked out of  the St. Louis convention along with  Teller of Colorada, Towne of Minnesota, Cannon of Utah, Pettigrew  of South'Dakota, and other stalwart silver *men, ��� was 'elected senator on" Tuesday to succeed that old  pioneer* George Shoup. These elections all go to show that men who  have staying qualities and brains  can depend on*the" people to .stay  with' them, notwithstanding continuous or temporary " defeats.  Quay's) fight in Pennsylvania was  one of brains and organization  against powerful- apolitical and  monied interests, and1 Quay won  after an appeal to the people. Clark  in Montana had Marcus Daly to  fight for years; but Daly . is dead  and Clark is -king. ' Dubois fought  -in-ldaho-for-a-^prineiple-and���lost;  but he stuck to his principles, and  he js now back in the United States'  senate. All these are object lessons  well worthy of study by men who  are seeking political preferment.  Bradstreet's report of the total  number of mercantile failures in  Canada for seven .years back shows  that there were fewer failures in  1900 than in any of the previous  years except in 1899. In 1900, the  failures totaled 133G' and $n 1899  the total was 1305. The development <*���_ the mining industry will  make Canada a nation iu wh ich  there will be no failures worth  while; reporting.  The West Kootenaay Power &  Light Company is doing everything  in its power to prevent the City of  Ne.Ls.on from ^acquiring a: site on  Kootenay river at'.which' to develop  wator power to be used in operat-  its electric light plant. This is not  because there is a limited amount  of-water in Kootenay river, but because there is a limited number of  places at which tlie power can be  cheaply and readily developed. But  this is not the question that The  Tribune wishes to draw attention  to. The' Tribune wishes to draw  the attention of the provincial  authorities to the fact that the  West Kootenay Power & Light  Company is in arrears thousands of  dollars for fees on water records  obtained not from the constituted  authorities in Kootenay, but. directly through the interference of  a man who was chief i-commissiouer  of lands and works in a former government in the province. '������-Why  should this powerful company be  allowed to get water records free,  when others are required to pay  spcr"* cash for their records? It is  tho duty of the provincial government to make this company pay  what it owes, and when it does so  it will have less money with which  to fight tho people of Nelson.  The hoard of trade of Nelson has  a history; but the history was all  made in the early years of its life,  Of late it has been n well-behaved'  institution, as befitted an organization with a bank manager for a  president and a church warden for  a secretary. Its history was made  when its president was a man who  built trails over which pack animals transported merchandise and  mining experts traveled afoot, and  its secretary was a man more thai^  gifted in speech and whose stalwart  form was noticeable at all public  assemblages. 1 Tistory is said to repeat itself; but it is not likely that  trail builders or men gifted in  speech will ever again hold oflice  in the Nelson Board of Trade. Not  more than four of the forty-odd'  men who organized and were members of the board in 1S92 are now  on its roll of members. This is significant. Is ifc a passing of the .old-  timers? or are they tired of the  game because of its tameness?  Taking the Census.  The next Dominion census will  be taken on Sunday, March 31st  next. This also is the, date fixed  for taking the census in Great Britain and Ireland. All persons. who  are living in Canada at midnight"  of -that Sunday' will be counted.-  This census will be taken by name"  and according to the de jure system.  The country will be" divided into  census districts consisting as far as  possible of electoral districts; the  polling subdivisions agreeing to the  boundaries adopted for the recent  general election are taken a�� units  of enumeration. There will be one  commissioner for each electoral district, and one additional commissioner where local circumstances  require' his services.' There will  also be one enumerator for each  polling sub-division or group of  polling sub-divisions where the  population is sparse. The work bf  enumeration" will begin Monday,  the Ist-of April,'and in a great majority of - the polling sub-divisions  ifc is expected that the work will be  through in a fortnight. Provision  is also made for the appointment of  four chief officers for the provinces  of Ontario and* Quebec, and one for  each" of the other provinces and the  Northwest Territories. It will be  the duty of these officers to instruct  the commissioners concerning the  work of the census and the commissioners in turn -.will instruct the  enumerators. -There are twelve  schedules as-against nine" in 1891.  One Winner in the Family.  This amusing incident is said to  have happened a few days ago at  Lincoln, Nebraska: The fifteen  year old daughter of- Mr. Bryan  started from- home to go down  town. She hailed a street car half  a block away and failing to attract  the attention of the conductor, she  sprinted down tlie street, and, after  a lively chase caught the car. All  out of breath, she dropped in a soat  and exclaimed: "Thank goodness,  there is one member of the Bryan  family who can run for something  and get it."

Cyanide -Patent- Knocked Out.  As is already well known, the  Australian ' Gold Recovery Company, owning the McArthur-Forrest  cyanide patent in West Australia,  has been endeavoring to collect its  fees from various users of tho cyanide process in that colony. A decision just given by the judicial  committee of the privy council in  London, to which the Lake View  Consols, Limited.-appealed-from-the  j judgment of the Western Australian courts, has upset the claims of  the Australian Gold Recovery Company, by deciding that the patent is  ihyalid. . The patent laws of Western Australia were only inaugurated in 1888, when it was "'-enacted;  inter alia, that any British -patent  current at the time should become  good for Western Australia. Among  these-was the British McArthur-  Forrest patent 14,174 of. 1287. In  1S95 this patent was upset in England by the. Pielstieker. litigation,  but leave was given to amend the  claim by substituting the expres-'  sion "dilute solution of cyanide" for  cyanide generally. The amehd>  ment should have been effected at  the same time in the West Australian patent. The privy council has  now decided that the patent was  never good In" West Australia, and  also that the amendment was never  validly effected. The consequence  is that the Australian Gold Recovery Company has lost its patent entirely and is entirely and is unable  to collect any of the past fees. .The  effect ofY the ;j udgraent as regards  the future of the patents does not  matter very much.as they have a  very short time to run. '������-��� The only  wonder is that this decision has  been so long delayed.  Will Own Canada, Also.  Toronto Telegram,  Standard Oil.interests, operating  through such aliases as J. Pierpont  Morgan arid J. J. Hill, have grouped  the transcontinental lines of the  United -States in one vast system.  Canadians are deceived if they see  no menace to the alleged independence of the Canadian Pacific-Mac-  kenaie-Mann lines in the process of  consolidation across the border.

R.-Mae-  ken/.ie-Mann system just as they  have absorbed Other systems, and  Canada will then be in the .proud  position of having -built two transcontinental lines, largely with public, lands and public money, in order  that the exploiters of these lines  may. sell  out   at   a   profit to the  Staudard Oil crowd. Whether Mackenzie and Mann. and the C." P. R.  are two or cine it matters little.  The C. P. R. and   Mackenzie   and  Maun lines will never compete .with  each other for the benefit of the  public.   The backers of these Canadian systems or system will have a  powerfulflnancial motive for establishing conditions   which .'will enable them to sell out .at a profit  to  the United States trans-continental  interests.     Canada's     sacrifice   of  land and money will not  suffice to  keep the C. P. R.  nor the Canada  Northern out .of the hands  of ' the  magnates who soem determined to  acquire   all   the   trans-continental  lines in North America.    Government ownership applied to all the  lines which have been "built since  Wilfrid Laurier came into power  would have made Canada, east and  west, independent of Rockefeller,  Hill and * Morgan.   Apart from R.  L. Richardson of Lisgar, and Frank  Oliver of Alberta, government ownership has not in the Dominion parliament a friend who is prepared to  put tha.-grjeat principle before the  petty interests of party.  -The Conservative opposition and the Liberal government seem .to be strug-  gling.Jn.the.throes of a keen rivalry  to see which can be most useful- to  the corporation and least useful to  tlie people. .

The advantages to this city  of a high -school can hardly be estimated. Students will throng in from tho various parts ot  Kootonay, with the hope of securing the best  education possible within a reasonable distance.  Further, a high school here means immeasurable  development of Intellectual growth of the inhabitants, n, desire to hear and read everything new  in literary and Ecieutillc circles. Indeed.it inay  muan a higher standard of political morality and  give an impetus to tho reception and absorption  of new ideas ip matters of art. '    v  ':' Tlie above from the Economist is  true as to the benefits of - the loeac  tion of a high school atYNelson; but  Nelson will not have to wait  "months" for the establishment of  the school, j The boai'tl of school  trustees have been instructed to  hire a principal and open the school  at once. They have the school  room fitted up in temporary quarters in the. Central School building,  aud have written to the department  of education at Victoria to send  them a principal, Q9 they did not  wish to break up the present teachr  ing staff of the public' school *at  Nelson, which they believe is one of  the best in the province. The high  school will be opened as soon as a  principal for it can be secured.  YESTERDAY'S   CURLING.  Two interesting gaines were  played by the Nelson curling club  at the rink yesterday.

It; was  doubt one of tlie inost enjoyable  gatherings ever held in the city.  Nearly 200 invited:gn'ests were'pre-  seut, and all enjoyed themselves  exceedingly. The"'hall was elaborately decorated, streamers'of numerous flags liiaug. in many loops,  being attached to"''the-ceiling and  walls/ The walls were also further  adorned with flags and red, white  and blue bunting.'. To add to* the  appearance of the' rpom, ��� there was,  at the north ericVa. large banner  containing the name of thesorder,  and in large letters tlie word-".Welcome," underneath .being the emblems of the order, set off by^a red,  white and blue background.  The ladies present wore pretty  and costly evening dresses. The  patronesses_of_the_baiywere:_]\Ii,s..  William It-vine, Mrs. J. J. Malone,  Mrs. J. A. Paqu'atte, Mrs. H. Stevens, Mrs. J. P. Thompson, and Mrs.  O. A. Nelson. Excellent music was  furnished by Millward's orchestra,  consisting of six pieces.  At the midnight hour a tempting  repast of turkey.and other delicious  things were served to the guests by  tho members of the order, aided by  tho executive committee, consisting  of L G. Nelson, William Irvine and  .1. A. Paquette.  The success of the event was  largely due to the'reception committee, which left nothing undone  which might detract from its success. This committee consisted of"  P.J.Bradley, T. Lillio, H.M.Vincent, H. Stevens, W. .T. Caldwell  and R. W. Thompson.  The Nelson branch of the Knights  of Pythias order is comparatively  young, yet its membership' is now  over the 100 mark. Applications  for membership are being recorded  at each meeting, and it bids fair in  shqi't time to become one of the  strongest order in the city,  Hockey .Match' with Rossland.  The Nelson hockey club received  word today from the Sandon team  stating that it would be impossible  for that team to play here tomorrow night as was arranged. It is  probable that the Sandon team will  come to Nelson about the last of  this month. The secretary of the  club was also notified that the Rossland team had decided to play here  on Monday night next. This will  be tho first big game of the season,  and as the Nelson boys have been  doing considerable pr*cticing they  ought to stand a good show of winning. A practice game will be held  tomorrow evening, after which a  Reward is Recalled.  ��� Toi'EKA, January 16.���Governor  Stanley decided tonight that he  .would not issue an offer of a reward for the arrest of tlie perpetrators of yesterday's negro burning, in Leavenworth. "It will be  absolutely of no use to issue the  offer," said the governor. "If the  guilty, persons were- arrested they  would havei.���to undergo the first  trial in Leavenworth "county, and  on account of the present condition  o. public sentiment there it would  be absolutely useless to attempt to  prosecute anybody there for the  crime."
