The city auditor's report for the year ending December .31st, 1900,
should be read by every ratepayer in Nelson! It shows .that the city has
assets, after making liberal allowances for depreciation, almost equal to
its liabilities. It also shows that the receipts for the year were in excess
of the estimates made by the finance committee at the beginning of the
year. The finance committee's estimate of the ^receipts was $74,800; the
actual receipts from revenue sources were $76,059.41, arid from all sources
$70,856.17, with $10,337.43~outstanding rates and taxes due. This shows
that Nelson is a"growing town.   The assets are:

To His Worshipthe Mayor, and the Aldermen op the  City  of
Gentlemen—I beg to submit to you my report covering the year 1900,
together with a statement of receipts and disbursements for the year; a
statement of asssets and liabilities, as at'December 31st, 1900: a list of unpaid accounts for water, light and scavenger, as at December 31st, 1900!
and a certificate from the chief of 'police covering fines imposed but not
paid during the year, I have carefully audited the books of account,
including the collector's various rolls, and examined all .vouchers and
' receipt stubs.lall of which now agree with the entries in your books.
I have carried forward a record of a few vouchers which were not
complete at the end of the year.
,   I have examined the* city treasurer's bonds, which appear to be in
order, the„date of expiration being February 1st," 1901'.
The following is a list of the Hre insurance on the city's property:
$4000 on electric light plant, expiring December 21st, 1901; $1750 on
electric light plant, expiring December 21st, 1901; $2250 on power house,
expiring on December 21st, 1901.
The outstanding accounts, pa j--able on December 31st, amounting to
$4396.47, are included in the year's disbursements, as are also outstanding
accounts ou December 31st, 1899, amounting to $8164.73; These latter
should have been put through the books in 1899 instead of being carried
forwardto 1900.
I have charged fuel and light account,* with $1725.60, and credited
the same to the electric light rates, to cover estimated cost' of lighting
streets and municipal buildings for the year.,
You will notice statement olc assets and liabilities shows excess of
liabilities amounting to $28,707.24) as against excess of assets a year
ago amounting to $10,627.02; but in view of the fact that the following
amounts were paid out of the revenue for 1900 I consider the showing
an excellent one :
Unpaid accounts from 1899...
Expended on streets in 1900...
Expended on sidewalks in 1900.
!  8,164 78
35,620 41
9,241 04
Amount  written
off   various   construction   accounts    for
-$53,026 18
19,821 04
_ $72,847 22
1 have not -included streets and sidewalks in the list of assets,
although some municipalities do this. Still I do not consider the custom
a good one.
The list of outstanding accounts should be looked into and an effort
made to collect them as many of them are long overdue.
With the statement of receipts and disbursement's I include the same
for 1899, arid also the estimates for 1900, which I have jno doubt will be
interesting for comparison.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

Nelson, B. a, January 21st, 1901.
The "members of the new city
council got down "to business last
evening. The most important
work was the striking of the several standing committees for the
year by mayor _ Fletcher, and when
the minutes of last meeting of the
old council were approved his wor-*
ship announced them as follows: -
Finance. — Aldermen Hamilton
(chairman), Selous and Irving.
Public Works.—Aldermen Paterson (chairman), Gillett and Madden.
Fire, Water and Light."—Aldermen Irving   (chairman),   Paterson
and Gillett. . _■
.- The next "order of business was,
the fixing of the date for the council 'meetings.'* Mayor Fletcher*, explained that the council had been
meeting on Monday evening- at 8"
o'clock, but it was for the members
to select such time for' their meetings as they" considered 'most^ convenient. The mayor added that
for the present the members of the
council had better meet- once a
week until their work was well in
hand. - The mayor's views met
(with 'the" approval "of, the" council,-
.arid'weekly meetings «'were|decided
^upon for' Monday evenings' at ,-8
o'clock. ' >    „   ,
„ There were four. annual reports
"before the council for consideration'
"and in calling attention jto 'them
the;mayor suggested „that for the
inforriiation of the, ratepayers a
digest of some of; them should be
published.'   - -    - -    ^
„ Alderman Hamilton agreed that
the engineer's. report, and that of
.the city auditor might be published
"toladvantage, so that** there'""would
be no misunderstanding as, to the
the condition of affairs with /the incoming of the present council.
The report of the medical health
officer was received and referred to
the board of health, which will meet
on-'Wednesday afternoon at 4
The> report of the auditor was
then received arid read,- together
with a"number~of statements of the
corporation finances.
Motions were then made authorizing the publication of the/subject
matter of the auditor's and other
W.- J. Thompson's-report of the
fire department was referred to the
fire, water and light committee.
inspectors was then read.- The feature of this report was the reference
of tthe inspectors to the waste and
leakage in connection with the two
services.. - ..-      . -
Mayor   Fletcher   remarked' that
the report.seemed to- demonstrate
the necessity for a'proper and regular inspection of the systems.
With respect to the electric light
system he expressed the opinion
that there should be an extra man
engaged. He said he was confident
that the salary of a competent man
could be saved by the city over and
over again. The city at present
had practically no check" upon the
electric light connections. The report which hatd been read -was ordered by the retiring council and!
would doubtless Ythrow: some light
upon .the matter wheri-it, came before theproper committee for consideration. He was confident that
the leakages, in the /systems were
sufficient to demand the earnest
attention of Y*he /committee,; arid
in view of theiri it would be for/the
council todecide whether the city
couricil could riot well afford to pay
the salary of; .a competent
electrician. Another matter was
the expense of the present practice*
of giving out the repairs toY the
electric light system. Yin the. past
the city had pai'dD.a,large amount
for repairs, a^ greati deal of which
could be saved if the* city had a
man /competent to/do the work.
The new man should be a working
superintendent. He added that
the fire on Baker street the other
day was caused by a defective
electric light wire. If the system
was not closely watched such oc
currences would be frequent, and in
dealing with the report of the inspectors it would be well for them
to go thoroughly into the .matter of
the economy of securing the services of a competent superintendent of the system.
Tlie report was then referred to
the fire, water and light committee.
The request of the local charity
organization that the council refund
it a deficit of $97 was referred to
the finance committee.
The council was then addressed
by a party named Jones, who requested the council to loan him the
price of a ticket to England. He
said he had spent $1000 and had
not sufficient .to get home. The
mayor undertook to enquire into
the case/    - *    ..- ."
The fire, water and light committee will meet on Saturday morning at 10:30 o'clock, and the public
works committee at 5 o'clock on
Thursday afternoon.

Thomas Mulvey, who has been a
resident of Slocan City since the fall
of 1891, is putting in a few days in
Nelson. Mr.' Mulvey is interested
in the Ottawa, group on Springer
creek and as the group is near the
Arlington, he believes he has a fortune in sight. / He is also ,a strong
believer in the future of mining, on
Springer creek,, and predicts that
there'will be.ten-producing properties there^withiia a year. Considerable development work has been
done on the Ottawa, and it is now
beyond the prospect stage. A main
working tunnel has exposed a considerable Tquantity^ of good-gra'de
ore whichYassayV .as,, high as "618"*
ounces silver.'_ At*present there' is
a"deal on forl'the; Ottawa. Before

offered the Grand Trunk Railway
Company $500,000- to elevate its
tracks in the city. % Today a reply
was received from the company saying that it wanted $1,000,000. - As
a result the scheme is hung .up as
the city cannot afford the money.
On an average a dozen people are
killed every year on the level crossings of the Grand Trunk.
Montreal.—A delegation of the
Lord's Day Alliance today waited

The Best They Can Say Is That Life
May Be Measured "by Days
Instead of Minutes.
London, January 21.—A special
dispatch from Cowes this evening
says -"emperor ' William -was- ad-
mitted to the queen's presence at
about five, o'clock, _She spoke a
few words to him, and after two or
three, minutes he withdrew. The
queen took a little nourishment and
fell asleep in the arms of the princess of Wales. , -   *
Cowes, January 22r—12:15 a.rn.—
The bulletin issued at midnight'announced there was no material
change in the queen's condition.\"  '
Cowes. January 22.^12:20 a.m:—
The^following is a full text of bulletin issued at midnight: "There is
no material change in the queen's
condition." The slight improvement
of the morning has been maintained
throughout the day. Food has been
taken fairly well and* some tranquil
sleep secured.
Cowes, January, 22.—Another
day inr the Victorian" era * is now
rapidly'drawing'lfco a close', without
any great change in the condition
of-queen'-Victoria.-" "The: slight" improvement, so frequently rifentioned
in the official bulletins, merely., indicates ^a_ postponement of the inevitable. . The* end may be a matter
of days, or, only A hours, but the
members of the royal /family, who
are now dragging out a weary visit
at Osborne house, know that the
death of her majesty'"is "merely; a
question of a short tiriie.   -    :    -
The most noticeable feature of
yesterday was'tl^ satisfactory portion the queen spent in conscious-,
n'ess; which rShe_ regained earfcjr hi
the afternoon, and still retained at
-10 p.m. At .that hour'she ha'd'not
seen emperor William, local rumors
to the contrary notwithstanding.
Royalty at Osborne-* thu3„ had a
chance to recuperate from -the terrible ordeal -undergone during, the
early hours of-Monday.
-The correspondent of the Associ-"
ated Press is "informed tliat the
members of the royal' family were
called to ,a room" adjoining the-
queen's - bedchamber no less than
five times yesterday morning^ and
were^kept in "^momentary expectation of being summoned to witness
the end up to half - past' five
Her majesty's physicians had then
only a vestige of hope that they
would-be ableto^keep- the-queen's-
feeble life until the prince of Wales
arrived. To secure this result they
resorted to the frequent use of
brandy and champagne. These
stimulants, used to an extent which
only the greatest emergency justified, worked their process; and
when the prince of Wales and emperor William entered the castle
grounds at 11:30 a. m. they found
the queen a trifle better than had
been expected.
The desperate remedies employed
Monday morning to enable her
majesty to live until her eldest
son's arrival will not be used again,
for the doctors are fearful that the
remedy might be almost worse than
the disease. They trust to prolong
her life by a moderate application
of stimulants, combined with as
much nourishment as can be assimilated. Such expedients as
were employed during Sunday
evening and Monday morning
are not considered justifiable.
The queen's rally astonished no one
more than her physicians,, and
when at four yesterday afternoon
tbey heard her ask for; chicken
broth, their amazement almost
equalled their delight. Privately,
however, they build no false hopes
upon these signs of what has been
one of the strongest •"* constitutions
with which a womari was ever endowed. Despite, /the favorable
afternoon, the / doctors dreaded
greatly the portion between six
o'clock and midnight. When that
was safely passed they seemed
hopeful of her majesty's living at
least through another day,
although the memory of the previous night's relapse kept their
anxiety at high tension.
The news of the death when it
occurs is likely to be publicly announced in  London  before   it  is
Press Comments.
St. Petersburg.—In the
ment of all circles on queen
toria's illness the personal
dominates the political. The
subjects freely admit that her\„ma-
jesty has been one of the principal
bulwaiks^ of peace. The Russia*
says: "England's "prestige is largely
due to the queen. To spare'.queen
Victoria much has been - forgiven
her ministers. With her will, depart Britannia's good genius." The'
Novoestis says: "England is discontented with the situation and the
dissatisfaction possibly would be
expressed- more plainly if queens
Victoria shall- die. Her successor
probably- will entertain different
views on many, questions. He is
credited with, strong French sympathies. The power of an English
sovereign is greater than is commonly stated, therefore the change
may produce a revolution-in international politics. "■    r    *-

Thomas S. Dunbar of Slocan City,
who along with others has. a bond
Springer creek about three/miles
from Slocan City, was /in vNelson
yesterday. He reports that the
property is looking exceedingly well
and that a recent rich strike has
been made on it. The force of men
working on the property were running a crosscut tunnel to tap the
vein at the 90-foot level, when they
encountered the main vein about a
week ago. The width of the /vein:
encountered was large with a 14-
inch pay-streak giving an average
value of $125 in silver. The ore also
gave returns of two ounces in gold.
The vein consists of dry ore and the
values are found in iron. Drifting
on the vein has been carried on
since the strike was encountered.
The company is now erecting an
ore-house, and other improvements
to aid in the carrying on successfully the development of the prop-:
erty are being made. The develop-
lrient of this property is the only
large amount of work that has been
done in that district, but it has been
sufficient to prove that the mineral
deposit of the belt carry high
values. ,
Sheriff Sells Valuable Mining Property
The interests in the Two Friends
property, on Lemon creek, which
were soldi at sheriff Tuck's- office
yesterday morning, were purchased
by A. York, a well-known, mining
man of Slocan City, for the sum of
$3000. The interest sold is said to
be a one-quarter. In the case of
Heddle vs. Stamford, in whicli the
latter's shares were to be disposed
of to satisfy a judgment, the sale
was postponed until Thursday
forenoon at 11 o'clock by reason of
an objection made by Stamford's-
solicitors to the effect that the
notice of execution had not been
served 6ri Stamford.

In the January .number of the  r  Canadian Magazine, Norman Pat-  - terson summarizes the arguments  that have been advanced by others  in favor of the establishment of a  , national    mint    in   Canada.    He  quotes  the following   information  concerning   the   Australian   mints  from Hutchinson's Australian  Encyclopedia :  " The formal sanction of her  majesty's government for the establishment of a branch of the  Royal Mint at Sydney was made in  1853, with colonel Ward as first  -deputy master; the Victoria mint  was opened June -12tb, 1872, with  colonel Ward as deputy master;  present masters, Sydney, Robert  Hunt, C. M. G.; Melbourne, G. Anderson. The total quantity of gold  received for coinage; at the Sydney  mint from the opening/to December  31st, 1899, was 17,113,910 ounces;  the product being 59,297,500 sovereigns, 2,420,500 half-sovereigns and  bullion valued at ��2,733,507; the  total revenue of the mint has been  ��530,174. Ia.48.8g the weight received for coinage was 900,475 ^  ounces,   which   was   coined   into  3,262,000. sovereigns,. 32,000' half-  sovereigns,  the    remainder   being  bullion.' .The total weight of gold  coined at Melbourne mint up   to  December 31st, 1889, was 11,268,118  ounces, and' gold' coin and bullion  .were issued valued at .��45,130,274.  The, gold coin issued in* Australia at  the two mints was valued at ��5,-  500,000. iNeither silver-or bronze  is coined, at Sydney or >-Melbourne.  The original, Australian sovereign  and half-sovereign had on the reverse,.instead of the Royal Arms or  the George and Dragon, the word  'Australia' and the early .coins contained a large .mixture of -silver.  The new sovereigns have the letter  S, or M, according to the, mint of  origin, immediately below the head  of the queen."  Later reports show that Australia  has now. three -mints, one having  ^been.established-at-Perth,vWestern  Australia, in June, 1899.     The cost  of the mints for 1899 was as follows:  Expend- Appro-  ituro priation  Melbourne ��17,001 ��20,000  Sydney ��14,488 ��15,000  Perth ��14,209 ��20,000  All the evidence points to the  fact that an Australian mint costs  $70,000 a year. The original cost  of the Sydney mint for building  and equipment was about .$150,000.  The annual cost.of a mint in Canada, the writer says, would be as  great as in Australia, although  there would not be more than half  as much gold to coin. Investigations have led him to the conclusion that "a gold coinage cannot be  a very bad thing far nation to possess, seeing that all nations of any  importance have it. It' would seem  almost like proving that railroads  and electric lights were necessary.  At worst, it can only be a question  of how much gold we should coin  and under what conditions."  tive. ; Mr. Rogers replied: "Oh, we  have no dispute. We have nothin g  to eomplain of so far as the Crow's  Nest /Pass Coal Company ��� is concerned. It is quite a mistake to  suppose that we regard the C. P. It.  rates as extortionate or even exhor-  bitant." The reporter continues:  "Then what does president Ja'ffray  and the Toronto Globe mean by  this crusade against the C. P. It., in  which the Crow's Nest Pass coal  rates figure so largely?" One wonders what warrant the reporter  could have for this statement. The  Globe, we are very sure, had not  been complaining about freight  rates for Crow's Nest coal, nor, so  far as we know, had Mr. Jaffray  made any such complaint. When  Mr. Rogers says that the Crow's  Nest Coal Company has no quarrel  with the railway about freight  rates he ought to know what he is  talking about, and his statement  should be conclusive as to the attitude of the coal company.  Changes on the Kaslo & Slocan,  Sandon Paystreak,  Gus Boeettcher, who has for so  many years wielded the punch on  the Kaslo & Slocan railway, has decided to quit the employ of that  company. Gus has interested himself considerably in mining properties and now has so many propositions on hand that they require  his undivided attention. Gus bid  farewell to the traveling public  yesterday and the command of the  K. ��fc S. 'limited has been turned  oyer to Jesse Pronk, who has officiated as brakeman on the road for  the past two years. Frank Thompson has also severed his connection  with the Kaslo & Slocan. Frank  has handled the, throttle" on the  little engine for a long time, and  while his duties did not bring him  so frequently in touch ,with the  public as was the case with Gus, he  has a large circle of friends who  will regret his disappearance from  the cab window. George Williamson, an old C. P. R. man, will take'  Harry's place.  PREPARATORY TO STOCK-TAKING  COMMENCING  'ft  $        Monday, Decern her 31st.

This is, a  more suitable location and will be  more convenient in every way.  The depth of water is better for  landing, and the,,neck of land  which extends at that point forms  somewhat of a harbor. The site  selected is so situated that it can  be reached by teams, and material  can easily be taken in, which is not  the case with the present shipyards.  A spur from the main line of the  Balfour extension to the yards will  be *-* constructed and new and  , stronger ways will be put in.  The new tug, which is being**  erected at the local ship yards will  be launched inside of three weeks.  The principal work on its construction is completed and the few minor  details which remain to be done can  be completed in a short .time: The  tug is tHe strongest "yet built in  i Kootenay.

"While any  one at all conversant with mining  readily admits that mining ' is the  most profitable,business on earth,  yet those engaged in banking have  always been the, last ones to admit  it. E. T. Rich, a prominent eastern  banker, in a recent article on "Mining vs. Banking," published in the  National Banker,-has the following  to say on the subject:  "There is much money invested  in mining as in banking and the  Jormer-*-pays^a���much���handsomer-  dividend. The prejudice against  mining, like an hereditary taint,'  still clings to the ultra-conservative,  the timid and the less ambitious.  Such notions and ideas on mining  though well .intentioned, are based  on the theory that some one lost  money either in mining proper, or  mining stock speculation. Millions  are sunk yearly in corn, .wheat or  pork speculation, and yet no one  condemns such' auomalism except,  perhaps, the agriculturalist or the  suffering poor. ���',.."  "The estimated annual .dividends  on the' normal capitalization of all  mining companies exceeded 10 per  cent a year on the actual capital invested. There is yearly as much  money invested in mining, as there  is in banking, but banking does not  prove as safe or as profitable as  mining. IriY a time of prosperity  the average banking dividends seldom exceed.8 per cent a year.  "The number of dividend paying  mining companies is larger than all  other combined industries, is fully,  sustained by statistics. That mining  produces quicker and -/great'' profits  than any. other industrial ..pursuit is  evidenced by.the number of multi-  ���millionaires. That there are risks  in; mining as well as other pursuits  is; well Yknown to all ^reasonable  minds, but that the- immense fortunes of the Mackeys, the Pairs, the  Fields, the Sharons, the Baldwins  and hundreds of others, are 'due to  mining cannot be denied. According to the census there is less than  one-hundredth part of our industrial population engaged in mining,  producing for one year a mineral  output.of $079,596,880. If other industries were as productive of  wealth as mining, we would have  according to the above ratio, a  of Y$07,959.787r600,  or twenty-two times as much as the  estimated circulation of gold and  silver money of the entire world.  "The yearly product of gold, silver, lead and copper alone, if distributed amongst tho miners engaged in the different mining states  producing these metals, averages  from $1000 to $3000 per man, or 20  times as much as the per capita of  products of all other combined in-,  dustries."   TOBACCO'S   USES.  The London Lancet prints an  article on the important part which  tobacco has' played among the  English soldiers in South Africa,  and gives interesting proof that, a  moderate use of tobacco has been  of very great value in her majesty's  campaign against the Boers. In  the course of the article, the Lancet  says: -*  The cases of acute mental derangement in the  course of campaigns, such as the present, are  very many. There have indeed been many in  South Africa. It would be most profitable and'  interesting could medical officers have taken  special note of the capacity for sleep previously  'evinced by those who broke down, and also their  indulgence or non-indulgence in tobacco. .Wc  are inclined to believe, used with duo moderation, tobacco is of value, second only to food itself, when long privations and exertions are to  be endured.    '  There is more of the same. It is a  fact that tobacco has become almost  a necessity to the great masses, of  men -who   join an   army.  ., Their  nerves   require   it."   Without it,  they would become "nervous,' dissatisfied,   irritable and in a great  measure indolent.   One can hardly  imagine an army without.tobacco; it-  is a great panacea for ills.   When  a soldier breakfasts-> on .hardtack  and black coffee he a ���state-<of  mindwhen he finishes .the., breakfast, not only to fight   tlie" enemy,  but to fight .his .best  friend. "But  give that same   soldier   a   dudeen,  loaded with natural' leaf,   and  let  him have a twenty-minutes' smoke,  'his whole, nature   changes.   He is  .ready to risk his life for   a   friend,  and her doesn't  care  whether  he  fights his enemy or treats him.   It  is a stimulant and at the same time  a sedative,-and-this fact is .so well  understood that it  is accepted by  all nations that soldiers   must   not  be refused the use of tobacco.   It  was discovered just ^when civilization was beginning   to   make men  nervous, and came at the right time,  the same as the discovery of America,  the  same  as  the coming   pf  steam and electric power, the same  as the telephone, and like all others,  now that the world knows them,. it  cannot  get , along   without   them.  The  best-natured   women "in   the,  world are the Spanish women; no  one can ever tell how much of that  is due to the   cigarette   that   they  smoke after their   morning   chocolate.  .  m&&&  After the Battle  ���������  of the Holiday Trade has cleared  away it is well to come back to the  every day business of the year as  quickly as possible.  **************************  KARN IS KINO ...  m  WE SAVE TBE BEST MADE PIANOS IN CANADA.

MONEY TO LOAN  ON  AT 7 PER CENT  BUSINESS PROPERTY  Full of Experiences.  Privates John Sims of Nelson and  "Ben" Huckell of Victoria, who  went to South Africa with the second contingent, and who have been  in continual active service ^at the  front during the past year, arrived  in Nelson last e\ ening by the Crow's  Nest boat. There was-no reception  "tendered them, but many of their  friends gathered around them to  hear the exciting, funny and sorrowful stories of the events through  which they passed during their stay  at the front. - Both ^were looking  well and feeling in good spirits.  -Although Mr. Sims spent several  years at Nelson and vicinity before  leaving-he- enlisted with--the .Calgary boys about one year ago. During his stay at the front he was- a  . member of the mounted,rifle regiment," and was "during the greater  portion of-his time' under - direct  command, .of general Hutton.. * He  did not" ��� experience one day of  sickness during' his time- in ser-*  vice arid- was". on* -duty con;-  tinually. He was' in, ^many  engagements, and * in * several  he said he-was in extremely -close  quarters. Excitement "ran high,  and shot ,and shells were flying in  every direction..' Throughout all  the many engagements-Mr. Sims  never, received a scratch. The  greatest hardships that he had to  endure- was when the contingent  'first arrived in .South Africa. It was  then "they had. to travel- for 500  miles over a desert. Many suffered'  with severe sickness, and many  valuable horses died and others became worthless and had to be  killed.        * Y     *  In speaking.of the closing of the  war Mr. Sims said that it would be  months before it .would be finally  brought to an end. He said that  the "war was practically closed, Jbut  the Boers kept up a continual  skirmishing warfare which' gave  the British considerable trouble.  He had many good things to say  about lord Kitchener and lord  Roberts. Mr. Sims said that Mr.  Eaton, another Nelson boy, had  stopped in .eastern Canada and had  been awarded the position of captain   of  one "of  the eastern com-  not the least doubt but that the  game will be a fast one.

Mr. Huckell only stopped in the  city a few hours as he was on his  way to  Victoria.   He   spent  the  short time he was here in shaking  hands with many friends that he  knew.   During his services .at the  front he was connected with the  mounted   riflemen and had .much  scouting to do. He was under colonel  Evans,     who     went     with     the  company    from     Winnipeg,     as  lie     enlisted      with      the    boys  at     Fort    MeLeod.   Mr.   Huckell  was sick with the fever while there  and was confined for some time to  the hospital.   After his recovery he  was engaged with the company in  the pursuit and driving' back of  general Dewet.  During one of these  engagements he was hit with a shell  whicli nearly terminated his life.  He was in such close quarters that  the firing of the big guns affected  his hearing and he has nearly lost  the use of it entirely. _ Notwithstanding the many hardships he had  to endure he was last evening in  the best of spirits.  Tonight's Hockey Match,  The Rossland Hockey team will  arrive in "Nelson at 11:30 this morning and at 8:30 this evening will  play the Nelson team at the rink  on Stanley street. It is predicted  that the game will be the fastest  ever played in Nelson. The local  team have put in good work at  practice and are now in excellent  shape. It is said the Rossland boys  have had considerable more prac-  than the home team, and they are  coming down with every determination to win. The Nelson boys are  equally as confident, and there is  Weigh, Scales Kept Busy.  The consumption of .coal in Nelson at the present time is about 30  tons a day...- Tlie amount. of. coal  used now* is,-much larger than it  was last year at this time.  to. the great demand for the article  the'dealers have*considerable difficulty in keeping a sufficient supply  on hand. During" the a-last month,  in which considerable warm weather  prevailed, over 500 tons were consumed. Since .the city scales were  established, a^year ago last August,  0525 loads of coal have been weighed  there.         "  ., Bad Man LockecT Up.  John Gammon.of Creston, who  has just served six months at the  provincial jail on the charge of  assaulting a constable, was arrested  in Nelson last-evening," charged  with disorderly conduct'. When he  was started for the lockup by chief  Jarvis he refused to go. Officer  Hardy had to ,be~called to the  chief's-assistancerahd-then-the-two-  officers- had a desperate struggle  before the prisoner was put behind  the bars.    ���  Not a Large Docket. -  Only six cases have as yet been  entered to be heard. at the session  of the supreme court that will be  held here on February 6th.
