 ��� J-l  i A  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR.  NELSON: TUESDAY MORNING; J AN UAH Y 8  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  Bill MINING DEAL IS HANGING FIRE  Intending  Purchaser  Has  the Money  Ready,  but the  Owners Cannot Agree Among Themselves.  TRANSFER WOULD MEAN MUCH TO GOAT RIVER DISTRICT  Au important mining deal affecting the Whito Gronso section is on  the verge of being closed up in Nelson today. It is in connection -with  tho transfer of fourteen claims in  the White Grouse basin, owned by  Mrs. Jennie E. Harris, of Kaslo, and  others. The property was bonded  Angus), last to Philip Corcoran, of  San Francisco, the representative,  of California and New York capitalists. The bond called for tho payment of $125,000, the first payment  of $10,000 falling due on Saturday  last. On that date Mr. Corcoran  was in Neleon and the money for  the payment was in tho bank. A  hitch occurred at tho last minute  through- a disagreement arising  among the owners of the property,  culminating finally in tho suit of  Fisher .vs. Harris, started yesterday  in the supreme court.  . lb is expected that the owners  will'settle the matter among themselves at an early date and that the  ileal will  be completed  before the  ��� end of the week by the transfer of  ���- the cash referred to.    The" report is  ��� also current that the deal will take  the form  of  a  purchase   outright  . within the next few months.  The matter is of more than ordinary interest in mining circles because the completion of tlie deal  ' means the introduction of another  strong corporation into'British Columbia. The syndicate which has  "taken the bond iu question includes  W. II. Beard*-, a New'York'City millionaire who is at the.head of tho  affaira-rjiu- the -east,, '-and-- president -  Bnrris of the San Mae to,* California,  . bank, and a director of the Red-  . wood City bank, Santa Cruz county, who is tho principal man among  the western parties interested.  - They now operate mining properties in Mexico, California and Nevada. Their representative, Philip*  Corcoran, has a wide experience in  mining fields on both sides of the'  world, and it was on the strength  of his representations that the big  Broken HiU'mine in West Australia  was sold a few years ngo, from  which the purchasers haAre _inco  taken $3,000,000 worth of ore.  In August last Mr. Corcoran visited Nelson and was induced to look  ���over-the���White-Grouse_section_of=  the Goat River mining division.  Tlie result was the bonding of the  Harris property and other propositions of which further details will  he to hand "later.  Mr. Corcoran expects that the  owners will patch up their differences within a few days, and that  he will be able to secure a clear  title, make''.the first payment of  $10,000 and get away to complete  arrangements,-for opening up the  property. ;v .'���;"������  The syndicate has mapped out a  comprehensive program of development, and will lose no time iivplac-  - ing the property on a producing  basis. - A compressor plant is to be  installed on tlio completion of a  wagon road, and it is proposed to  use power in all branches of the  work.' After closing the bonds last  summer about live tons of ore from  the property were mined, carefully  sorted and packed out to secure a  (smelter test. Small consignments  were made to the Nelson and Trail  smelters, similar institutions at  Omaha, Nebraska, Denver, Colorado, and the big Selby plant at San  Francisco. With a variation of a  few cents the samples went 8 to 10  per cent copper,-$5 to $12 in gold  and 17 toJiS ounces in silver.  The veins on the property are 10  to 30 feet in width. The ore requires smelter treatment, and one  of the principal items oh"the syndicate's Lprog raiii. is ; the construction  of a smelter to handle tne ores from  their Own and other, properties in  ��� the district.  This feature'is naturally more or  less a matter of the future, but according to Mr. Corcoran hi-* people  stand ready to carry out the scheme  to its fullest extent, and further, to  construct a railroad line to connect  the White Grouse basin with the  < Crow's Nest road, in the event of  the' C, P. not building their projected line into the country.  In referring to tho possibilities of  tlio niining industry of tho Kootenays M.r. Corcoran gives it as his  opinio7_^!?**5__in comparison with  Mexi(*^^^?/a}f^^Vi,temala and  vario*ii^30|f^>|f^Jr#VMOn where  he has-opoWE-SS^^l^ has surpassed in promise ^t-Svoutlook iu  the Kootenays. * .   >.   ���  THE FIRST STEPS TAKEN TO  Open the Land Registry Office.  H. P. Macleod left last night for  "Victoria to enter the oflice of the  minister of lands and works for the  purpose of acquiring tho routine of  work in the laud registry branch,  presumably to acquaint him with  his future duties as registrar at  Nelson. Prior to his departure Mr.  Macleod '..went- through the local  office building for the purpose of  seeing thti-'everything was in shape  as when the contractor turned it  over. The strongopoint about tho  building is that it is guaranteed to  be fireproof. , From the exterior  the appearance of the building is  unpretentious, aud the same may  be said of the interior. The heavy  stone walls and floors laid' in cement throughout ran away -with  the best part of the $12,000, but it  is claimed for the building that  none of the contents will ever be  destroyed by fire, a point of- paramount importance in view of the  value of- the documents on file. The  main -entrance, is -protected by,a  folding steel door in addition to the  ordinary iinished door, and all the  windows are backed up by steel  shutters, which makes the office  burglar proof save against explosives. The arrangement of the  floor space provides for a large  office at tho rear of the building,  with four private offices opening  from the hall leading thereto. The  system of registration "to be used  includes a number of the best features of tho Torrens system. No  date has beeu fixed for the opening  of the office, but it is presumed  that a couple of months will elapse  before business will be commenced.  Will Go After Yuengling.  Frederick D. Yuengling, the  Rossland brewery salesman who is  alleged to have defrauded his employers to a considerable amount, is  to be brought back for trial. On  Thursday morning W. II. Bullock-  Webster, chief of provincial police,  leaves for New York via the C. P.  R. for the purpose of securing  Yuengling, who will be turned over  to-, him by the United States  authorities. Constable Wilson of  Creston will also go along, and the  trip will take two weeks. Yuengling held a position of trust in  Rossland and cut a wide swath in  politics and society. Ifc is asserted  that he engineered the famous banquet to Joseph Martin when that  statesman made his "white-shirted  hoboes" speech. The parties interested in securing Yuengling's arrest  located him last, spring in New  York, where his father is a wealthy  brewer. He was apprehended and  extradition ;���'..- proceedings were  started in August last. The extradition was fought to the last ditch,  but on December 1st the prisoner  was tried before a United States  commissioner and committed to  extradition. On Monday word was^  received that the secretary of state  for the United States had decided  to surrender Yuengling and would  hold him at New York until Janu*-  ary 22nd. The arrangements for  the trip were then completed.  Appointment Gives Satisfaction.  Santiago De Cuba, January 7.���  The announcement today of the appointment of colonel Samuel Whiteside, to be a brigadier-general of  the volunteers, caused widespread  satisfaction, owing to his popularity  among Cubans, Americans and foreigners here. All the military and  civil officers, the civil governor and  his staff, and the government employees in a body, have heartily  congratulated him upon a well de  served promotion, and the employees of the sanitary department  liave presented to him a handsome  silver service. The Cubans are  greatly'satisfied, and all press comments are favorable. There was a  feeling of humiliation at the fact  that the district had been left  under the command of an officer of  lower rank than a brigadier. General Whiteside has received a congratulatory dispatch from the governor; general Wood, and many officers in the island, as well as from  senators, members of the house of  representatives and friends in the  United States.  Decided Against the Company.  Washington, January 7. ��� The  supreme court today" decided the  case of the Liverpool, London &*  Globe Insurance Company vs.  Kearney , & Wyse, involving the  validity of the clause in a fire insurance policy requiring the assured  to keep an inventory of his effects  in a fire proof compartment, and  holding'tho policy void if not done.  Kearney <fc Wyse were hardware  dealers in Ardmore, and lost their  inventory. The circuit court of appeals decided that this occurrence  did not invalidate the policy, and  the supreme court affirmed" this  opinion.   CHINA REFUSES  TO  SIGN  ACTION  IS BASED ON  ALLEGED  OBJECTION  OF VICEROYS.  Another. Move in the Game to Secure  Time Which May Embarrass  The Powers,  Pekin, January 7.���The reports  that   the   Chinese   court   had   instructed the Chinese peace envoys  to refuse to sign the joint note of  the powers to China is confirmed.  The court referred .to , the' objec-  j =>������  -tionsxrof-.-southern-c viceroys,*-- which  -are the same as the court have.  Prince Ching, however, informed  the court that.it was too .late, and  a further reply from the court is  expected shortly.  Shang-Hai, January 7. ��� Sir  Ernest Satow, British minister to  China,.has proposed to the other  foreign envoys the draft of a commercial treaty with China, based  on the following conditions: First  ���Freedom for all coasting vessels.  Second���Freedom for all vessels on  inland waters, especially the Yang  tse Kiang. Third���Permission to  import foreign salt. Fourth ���  ^Adoption-of~regnlations~encourag--  ing Chinese investments in foreign  countries. Fifth���Steps extending  Chinese products and imports.  Sixth���Protection of treaty ports.  The draft has not been accepted by  tho powers, and discussion will  ensue on it. Bigoted court officials,  it is reported, still raise objections  to signing an acceptance of the joint  demands.       _______  London, January 7.���The British  foreign oflice considers the reported  agreement between Russia and  China, regarding the Manchurian  province of Feng Tien, as probably  referrin**- to military measures of a  temporary character. There is  nothing in the possession of the  foreign oflice to show tliat any such  agreement has the sanction of Russia and China. Iii the opinion of  the foreign office there is likely to  be a great deal more discussion before theChineseimperial.persor.ages  fiaally agree to the penalties insisted upon by the powers.  Pekin, January 7.���This afternoon agreements identical for each  nation were presented. to prince  Ching. Those close to prince Ching  and Li Hung Chang say they have  decided to sign,; even if they lose  their heads, -without regard to the  latest ordei*s'y|i;om the court.  Others, who areapparently equally  close, say they will not sign" immediately, asserting also that there  are two factions surrounding the  court, equally strong, and that it  would be impolitic for the Chinese  plenipotentiaries at present to act  for themselves.  London, January 8.���"The United  States government has proposed to  the powers," says the Washington  correspondent of the Daily Mail,  "to transfer the Chinese negotiations from Pekin %o Washington."

They say that  both water and light rates are  too  high;- that the rates  should be  so  low as to return just sufficient  to  pay     the     cost       of      operating  the  plants.   The   Tribune   is of  opinion that both should  be made  yield a fair profit over  and above  the cost of operation, and that this  has been done is borne out by the  figures  in the city's  books, which  ^Jmve-been_eaL'_fully_aiidifced.yrhe.  water-works   have   cost   the   city  $95,533.00.    The   revenue   for   the  year 1900 was $14,-135.15.    The city  pays 5 per cent ou the  money borrowed  to build   the    water-works  and is  required to lay aside four  per cent each-year to create a sinking fund to repay the cost.   This  makes 9 per cent that must of neces-  si ty be earned, or $8590.97.   Deduct  $8590.97 from last year's earnings  and  there remains��� -'$5S37.1'8:':-'-Avith  , .which to meet all expenses of main-  "tonance, superintendence, clerk hire,  cost   of   making  short extensions,  and allowances for depreciation.   If  these are all taken into consideration iir computing the actual cost of  operating the water-works  system  of Nelson, how much of the $5837.18  will be left?   The electric light system has cost $09,493.58.    Last year  the city collected in revenue $19,-  203. . The interest and sinking fund  is the same as for the water-works  system, that is, 9 per cent.    Nine  per  cent on $69,493.58 is $6254.42,  which deducted from the earnings  leaves a surplus of $12,948.58.   The  operating   expenses,   expenses    of  maintenance, cost of superintendence and   proportionate  share   of  c'.eik hire,, together with a reasonable allowance for depreciation, canr  not be reckoned at less than 15 per  cent, which amounts to $10,424.03.  That amount added to the interest  and sinking fund charge makes a  totalof $10,078.45, which leaves the  city an actual profit of $2524.55 for  operating the plant for the year  ��900.   It ia true, the city gets its  light and water free in addition to  the smxll actual profit that it makes:  but what businessman who has tlie  true interests of the city in A-iew,  would care to recommend that the  water and light rates be lowered?  Men who are clamoring for water  and light at cost, know little about  the question at issue.  Men" who are ashamed to write  13 the press over their own names  are not to be. trusted, more especially when their letters refer to  private individuals. The electors  of Nelson should take no stock in  letters whoso writers sign them-  selves'-Ratepayer," "Citizen," "lion-  eat Man," etc. No self-respecting  man would slur a neighbor behind  his back, and no one hut a coward  would seek to belittle a neighbor  through anonymous letters in the  public press, it is needless to say  that a self-respecting newspaper  would not publish such letters.  Chris Foley of Rossland, who  was-the candidate of the Independent Labor party for member of  the houso of commons for Yale-  Cariboo, at the last election, has  been appointed a member of the  Chinese commission. The other  members of the commission are II.  C. Clute of Toronto and D. J. Munn  of New Westminster. F. J. Deane,  editor of thr Kamloops, Sentinel, is  the secretary of the commission. If  the report of the commission when  made is adopted and its recommendations carried out by the Laurier  government, there soon will bo a  largo decrease in the Chinese population of British Columbia.  <- Public opinion, as expressed on  the* streots,- isvery much in favor  of electing Frank Fletcher, mayor,  and Thomas Mndden, Harold Selous,  John- Hamilton, John A'..-'Irving,  John Paterson, and William G. Gillet,  aldermen, by acclamation..' All are  conceded to bo fair-minded men,  who haave been successful in managing their own business affairs.'and  who can be depended on to do their  best to keep the business of the city  on sound linos.--'-Could more be done  by any other seven ' men willing"to  undertake the work?  Neither alderman Wilson nor  alderman Morrison nor alderman  Hall of the East ward- nor alderman Irvine of the West ward will  be a candidate for re-election. This  is on the authority of these gentlemen themselves.  Mayor Houston and aldermen  Irvine and Wilson and Morrison  and McKillop and Hall and' Arthur  can go out of office with the knowledge that the city has got good  value for every dollar that they  have���spont.^-Nelson���is���a���better-  looking town today in every respect  than it was a year ago. More: it is  in a better condition as a going business concern.  owing to the water in the flume  from Bark Shanty creek freezing.

Bv John Houston, Mayor,  December 12th, 1900.  At the request of a number of electors, I havo  decided lo offer my?elf ns a candidate for mayor  at the coming civic elections. I have served as  alderman two years of tho four during  which tha* city has been conducting its own affairs, and my record while in the council on the  questions that arc now the most important Hsues  before the. people of ths city h such as will bear  insproLion.  I believe I hat the city has valuable assets in the  water and elective light systems, and while in  Iho council I did everything possible to safeguard  these' asset-*; and if elected mayor no act or vote  of mint* will be in favor of allowing any oulside  corporate interest to become a competitor with  th"* city in the business of electric lighting, a  bu-inesa in which the city has already invested  **i0,00ft.  While in the council in IK-*", I voted in favor of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all oonlricts,  and that principle was carried out in both letter  and Rpiric I see no reason to change my views  on that.question now. And I believe, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that the city can got as good value for the  money spent by having tho great hulk of its work  done by day's labor as by tho contract system,  and no good reason can be advanced why the  cily should not pay lhe same rate of wages and  workmen the same number of houi s as prevails  in private enterprise1"'.  T am in f.ivor of giviug the busiiies*i and property interests every safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe the lire department should be  made as eflic'eiit as possible, consistent with lhe  revenues of the cily.  Nelson should be kept in advance of its rivals,  and everything possible must be done to induce manufacturing enterprises to locate here,  for it is Iho payrolls that build up: the cities of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and law-  abiding ns eastern altio<*. This, is beeuu&o the  people of Nelson are'tolernnt. 1 believe that this  spirit, of toleration should ;be-continued, and I  will if elected mayor do no act to abridge or cur-'  tail the rights or-privileges of ono class"ofou.r  citizens merely because another class may have  different views.   **. .      - *.       . ;  The ci'y has made a sUrt in permanent street  improvements, and I am in favor of continuing  these improvements as fast aspossiblo, with due  regard io the rovenues of the city.  If elected mayor, I am in a position and will  pledge myself to devote my time to the conduct  of the city o bin-ines**. .  FRANK FLETCHER.

Men-are Being Laid Off.  Sandon  Paystreak.  The only properties yet affected  by the disorganized   state- of the  lead ore   market   are   the Payne,*  Whitewater and Last Chance.   At  the Payne about twenty men have  been laid off.    Since the 1st instant  the shipment have beeu 00 tons to  Trail and 20 tons to Everett.   The  balance of the ore mined is being  stored in the mine.   The   Whitewater only shipped 44\ tons for the  week ending January 3rd, and on  Thursday tlie night shift in  both  the mino and the mill were laid off,  throwing thirty men out of employment.   Twenty-five men were laid  off at the Last Chance last  night.  The  l;.y-off   is   the   result  of the  smelter company's refusal  to purchase lead ore.   The present indications are that the market will again  be  open within  ten  days  or  two  weeks.    Reliable information is not  easily obtainable, but as-tho smelt-*  ers are now negotiating for a new  rate it is evident theaction  of the  combine'in refusing to renew contracts was due'entirely to a desire  to raise rates.

Several minor  points were discussed, among these  being .the passage of* "the usual  accounts.  The following resolution dealing  with a matter of considerable importance was unanimously carried:  Moved by aldermen Hall and  Arthur and resolved, that it is the  opinion of the council that it is to  the best interests of this city to  erect an adequate electric plant on  Kootenay river for light and power  purposes at the earliest possible  date. This places the council of  1900 on record for the benefit of  their successors..  Mayor Houston read for the information of the council the annual  report of the chief of police prepared for submission to the police  commissioners.  Tho members in attendance were:  Mayor Houston and aldermen Hall,  Arthur and Irvine.  WELL UP  IN YEARS.
