January 11.���Optimism  is taking the place of eouservativism  among the military men here.  The cause being the numerous surrenders and destruction of insur-  ���^i-^SSSf*- camps, coupled with the en-  --_*..*^-nirin-r endorsing'of the Amer-  tutions among the natives.  The propagation of the principles  of the federal party, aud the knowledge that they are approved by  the United States Philippine commission and the military authorities, and the carrying out of  the terms of general MacArthur's  proclamation, classing all Avho" do  things inimical to the interests of  the army as rebels and traitors, together ' Avith the offering of local  autonomy and protection, and showing the certainty of punishment of  those who remain rebellious, are  having a pointed effect. The cut*;  ting of communications and supplies ,have destroyed the remnants  of tlie insurgents' organizations.

Liverpool, .January 14.���Pierce,  'Watts & Co., timber merchants,  have been declared bankrupt.  Their. liabilities are estimated at  ��80,000, and their assets at _J-0,000.  The fight that is on between the  City of Nelson and the West Kootenay Power ifc Light Company had  an innings yesterday at Nelson before John A. Turner,  government  agent.    At  the last session of the  legislature the Water Clauses Consolidation  Act,  1897, was amended  so as  to place municipal corporations on the same footing as power  companies in acquiring AVater ���privileges   for   power   purposes.   This  was  tho first effective move that  tlie city made in the fight that is  now on, and it was done so quietly  that tlie power company did not  havo an opportunity to   make  a  move to checkmate it.   The next  move was to select an available site'  for a power station and apply for-a  water'privilege.   The city engineer^  and B/;C.*Riblet, as consulting en-',  gineeiy decided that the upper falls  would be a good place at which to  divert water from the river and  build a power station.    An application for a-water privilege of 1000  inches was  made, on behalf of the  city by mayor Houston, and on the  7th instant the mayor applied for  a record, but he was informed by  the government agent that protests  had beeu entered by both the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company  and L. A. Campbell, Avho happens  .to be the manager of   the power  compiiny. The power company^j-ro-  tested, tliat   the *Ttaking   of  'JOOO  inches   of   Avater   from   the   river  , would injuriously, affect their business;- and -Mr:JCampbell__ protested  rfchSrfi.ifclie'jboint' at wliiiclf" the-water  "was to be'diverted.Avas on his land.  The government   agent   gave the  power company and* Mr. Campbell  notice to appear on the 14th and  he would hear their protests.  Yesterday promptly at 12 o'clock  the hearing commenced. Mayor  Houston and city engineer McCul-  loch appealed for the city, and  JohA\EUiot, barrister, of Nelson,  appeared for Mr. Campbell. The  power company had no direct representative present unless it Avas  Mr. Campbell. F. J. O'Reilly, a  provincial land surveyor, was also  present in the interest of Mr, Campbell. On being called, Mr. Elliot  stated that he had two objections  to offer. 1. That the city had not  passed "a- by-laAV under sub-sections  11, 12and 1-1 of section HO of the  Municipal-Clauses Act, or any of  them, therefore tlie city could not  apply for a water privilege until  that provision of the law had been  ^complied with. 2, That the point  at which the Avater Avas to be  di\*erted was a mill site that belonged to L, A. Campbell. He fol-  loAved up his objections by a learned  .'argument.  Y Mayor Houston, on behalf of the  city, stated that the application  was made under the provisions of  by-law No. .11, a by-laAV that had  stood the test of an appeal to the  supreme court. He .also maintained  that L. A. Campbell did not own  the land at the point at which the  Avater was to be diverted.  Government agent Turner overruled the objections raised by Mr.  Elliot, and ordered tho Avater privilege issued.  Mr. Elliot filed his objections in  writing, and mayor Houston waited  until the record "was issued, and  carried the document to the city  office.  The next move Avill be over the  site for a power station. L. A.  Campbell has staked the laud as a  mill site under the Mineral Act,  and the city has applied to purchase the land under the Land Act.  Both surveys will be made and will  soon be on file in th'eY office of the  government agent.  Refused to Work With Them.

The First in the Province.  Greenwood, .Tanuary 14.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The first  copper bessemeriziug plant to be  brought into this province will be  installed at the.Greenwood smelter.

The cabinet is not  willing to agree to this suggestion  unless some definite propositions  are made.  MINES OF SLOGAN DIVISION  LUCK ATTEND3 DEVELOPMENT  ON SEVERAL PROPERTIES.  More High Grade Oro Encountered in  the Two FriendH, Bondholder  and Enterprise Mines.  News of several important strikes  jvhich Ayere made in the Sloean  mining district during the past  week is at hand. An important  strike was made on the Two  Friends group, situated on Springer  creek betAveen Sandon and Kaslo,  last Thursday. The force was  Avorking in the AA'est drift Avhen a  strike of eight inches of high grade  galena v/as made. This is of considerable importance to the company, as regular shipments are now  being made and much larger returns will be obtained.  On the Bondholder the lead  which AAras being followed Avidened  out from eight inches to one foot.  Where the discovery was made was  at a depth of 150 feet, tho lead  being 8 inches, in width from the  surface to this point. The property  is under lease to local parties, but  is owned by R; C. Campbell-Johnston of this city, A shipment of  two cars has been made, and the  returns were 224 obnees of silver to  the ton. Another shipment will be  ready in a few days.  - "An important strike is also reported to have been made on the  Enterprise group, situated on Ten-  mile -creek, and operated by the  London <fe British Columbia Gold-  fields. The strike was made while  running a crosscut to the right in'  No. 2 tunnel.* A vein to the Avidth  of 8 inches was followed from the  surface to . a depth of nearly 800  feet, and form this point the lead-  was lost, and, for some ktirae past  clevjilopment^hs's been carried on in  '.ojrderrtd'.catcir7 the%1ead/ agaiiii'j-A  crosscut tunnel-was"' then riitvand  Avhile Avorking on it .last ,Wednes-  day a ledge", of 15 inches -of high  grade" shipping ore was encountered. The lead is well defined,  and since it* has been discovered  Avork has been concentrated on it,  and good results have been obtained. It is said that the company contemplates making extent  sive improvements at the property'  during the coming year. It is said  that a large mill is to be erected  aud a sum amounting to $00,000*  has been set apart for this purpose.  It 19 probable that other improvements to carry on the development  of the property more rapidly, -will  be made.  On the Phoenix group, situated  .onJilrin-Uiountam about-two_miles  from Slocan City, a rich strike Avas  also made last week. The strike  Avas made while running a drift  somewhat lower than the old workings. The new ledge stands well  defined between Avails and nearly  fills the breast of the tunnel. The  property is a dry ore proposition.  The chief A'alues are in gold, tlie  returns being about $70 per ton.  The property is now being operated  by an American company under  the management of If. Dunbar. It  was formerly controlled by a stock  company of whom Messrs. Gething  and Henderson of Slocan and G. TI.  Aylward Avere the principal owners.  The smelter trust Avliich it was  feared Avould affect every silver-  lead producing mining district in  British Columbia has not affected  the Slocan mining district in tlie  least. The reason is that the majority of the properties aro dry ore  producers and they are in high demand among all the smelters, as  they aid greatly in fluxing purposes.  A cut in treatment rates has been  made by the management of at  least two of the smelters dm ing the  last 10 days in order to secure the  ores. A still further reduction has  been promised and will undoubtedly take effect .shortly. Interested  parties have adyisedYloeal shippers  to make no coiitracts for the time  being, in view of the proposed reduction. Owing to this fact purchasers have been attracted to the  camp and are'noAV looking for properties in which to invest.  The Alice Wagon Road Completed.  W. A. McLean, who had charge  of the construction of a wagon road  from the town of Creston to tho  Alica mine, in the Goat .river, district, has returned home to Nelson.  Just before he came in the road Avas  completed and it is now one of the  best in that district.   The distance  of the road is about three miles and  was built with the aid of money  advanced by the provincial government and by the   company represented by T. G. Procter.   The former advanced $750 while the  latter  put up $250, the total -.cost of the  road being $1000.   The   completion  of this road gives an easy access to  the Alice property and the work  upon   it   will   be pushed rapidly.  Siuce the road has been readj*  for  use a large amount of supplies have  beeu taken to the mine.   For some  time past the development of  the  property    has    been    carried    on  steadily and a large quantity of ore  has been stored in the bins.   Within the next few days a shipment of  ore will be   made   to   the   Nelson  smelter.-   The company   has   done  good work in advancing  this property as they bonded it but a short  time ago.

Louisville, Kentucky, January  14.���The Kid Broad-David Sullivan  light at the Auditorium tonight  Avas declared a draw at the end of  the twenty-fifth round.  The members of the city council"  for the year 1900 are to be congratulated for the many improvements that they have been successful in executing for. the benefit of %  the   city   through   tho. board" of  public works during their term of  oflice.  , The greatest improvements ,  done was probably  thoso in eon--  nection    with   tho    Avater   v.or_\n  system.   With the completion" of  the T4-inch steel water main up  Cottonwood creek last winter, the  city   has   now    two   independent  sources   of Avater  supply, namely   ,  from Cottonwood creek and Anderson creek, guaranteeing an adequate  and   efficient AATater supply" for a  city   four times   Nelson's  present ���>  population.   During the time Avhen.  the smelter started up last fall the,���j  Cottonwood "pipe line was brought ^*  into use and has been in continual  use since;   Owing .to"some of the " " -  streets having to be graded a num-".'.;;  ber of mains had to be lowered,' ,:.,  principally those on Baker, Lati-}- -J  mer,'Cedar and  Victoria   streets.;.

During the year a move was made  towards permanent street itnprovo--  ments and for this purpose a 15-tou  steam roller and a rocker usher was  purchased.   As a consequence most  of the expenditure ou streets' was  more in the   nature of permanen t  improvements.   Baker   stroet  was  paved with a first class Telford-  macadam   pavement' each side of  tho street from' Hall  curbing.   A portion  streetAvas also paved,  being lined   with   a  streets were also graded  and  into an excellent condition.  In connection AAith the electric  light system many important improvements were made.

Yesterday John Houston and his supporters made Frank Fletcher mayor  of Nelson without an election, and  pledged  him their -hearty support  . during his iucnmbency of the office.  They not only made Mr. Fletcher  mayor, but they elected six aldermen with whom-he can-work. This  is politics, but at the same- time it  is what must be "done if the people  are-to. have their affairs successfully   managed.       Nelson   should   make-a-goocLrecordyhis_year,_as_a_  civic corporation, for the mayor-  elect has had two years' experience  as an alderman, and he has as colleagues six aldermen who are sue-,  cessful business men. . Nelson is all  i ight.      ������_   The Aliner announces that it has  been reorganized, and that it will  quit the evening field and return  to the morning field. It is understood that editor Beaton has  severed connection Avith tho paper,  and that His successor is to bo the  man who w.as said to have furnished the brains for the Aline  Owner's Association in their light  against the Miners' Unions and the  Eight-hour laAv. The new business  manager is to be Duncan A.���McFarland, who under the Cro.isdaile  management was storekeeper, at  the '.Silver King mine. Tbis current  rumor that John Elliott and .T.  Roderick Robertson are. to be the  editors of the overdraft column,  the most difficult to edit of all columns in a newspaper. Afay the  Aliner, under its new ���'management,  have all the success it deserves.  GREENWOOD'S VOTER'S LIST  Said to be. Unfair.  Greenwood, January. 14.���[Special to The Tribune].���There promises to bo sone. sensational developments in the municipal campaign  before Thursday next. Members of  lhe Ross cpnimittee are worked   up  are^-iriterested in-'the election'of'Dr.'  Jakes",,for the mayoralty, to ..stuff  the voter.-slist. This will doubtless  be. brought out at a public meeting  to, be held on Wednesday, -the eve  of the election, at which both -' candidates will be present.  The correspondent of   The -Tribune today searched   the   transfer  book and voter's list - at   the   city  hall and-found that a large number  of transfers   of   real   estate- were  added immediately before the closing of the list ��� on * December   1st.  With the exception of   Alike   Eild-  erman,   eity   driver; city   solicitor  Andrew Leamy and his   son John,  and one or two others,' the majority of these now registered   voters'  are disinterested persons, living outside the city, and as   a   matter   of  -fact notcontributing-one���cen t^to-  the maintainence of   the   corporation,    ne also  found  that  certain  names had been added   to the list  after its   close   on   December   1st.  Under the Alunicipal Act the mayoi  has power to revise   the   list,   and  that the same shall be returned " to  the city clerk on or before tlie third  Afonday in December (17th).  When  it Avas returned thofolloAving names  had been added, as being owners of  property: Andrew Leamy, John A."  Kearny, Afark Kay, Michael   Milder-  man and Pat Hickey.  The following names  Avere added  to the list by transfers immediately  prior   to   December    1st:    hi   tlie  North Avard: Philip Fraser, carpenter, Alother  Lode  mine; Fddie Dolour,    prospector,    city;      Charles  Hooper, miner, Alother Lode; Arthur  Jacobs and James   Jones,  miners,  Sunset   mine;     Aiurdock    Kempt,  miner,   Sunset;-  Thomas    Alalday,  miner,  Alother Lode;   .Tames Morgan,   miner, Alother Lode;   Philip  McDonald;  hotelkeeper, city;   Neil  McFadden,   miner,   Alother    Lode;  Dan   M'cCrlasher,    miner,    Sunset;  John Angregon, shift boss, Alother  Lode; John, Kenneth and Dan Mc-  Reth, miners, Alothar Lode; W. AIc-  Tniomany.-miner,' Mother Lode; A.  11. McDonald,  carpenter, city;   Joe  Pilon, miner, Alother- Lode; l?,obort  AT. Roger, miner, Alother Lode.   In  the South ward, Minto Cragie, carpenter,   John    Fraser,,  carpenter,  Mark Kay,   carpenter,   Anaconda;  John A.   Leamy,  clerk, Anaconda;  Aud row Leamy, eity solicitor, Anaconda; George Shipley,  bartender,  Anaconda; Pat Hickey, prospector,  Anaconda.; F. S. Smith,  unknown,  and Michael Rilderman, city driver,  city.    In justice to many of these  gentlemen it may besaicf they were  unaware that their names had  been added to the list, and some, at  least, Avill refuse to cast a ballot.  The agreements upon which tho  transfers ' are said to hare- been  made were of the most irregular  desci iption. The names of some of  the new owners are not even spelt  correctly, and in other cases appears  the nickname instead of the Christian name.  Yesterday Duncan Ross and Dr.  Spankie drove out to the Alother  Lode and Sunset mines, where most  of the new voters live, aud pointed  out to the men that they will be  held liable if they attempt to use  the franchise. No sooner were they  through than I )r. Jakes and Alike  Kane appeared on the scene apparently for the opposite purpose. Tho  Ross committee say that if any of  the added voters exercise the fran-  chipc*. so obtained, they "will be held  accountable.  BUSINESS  MENTION.

A. 1*\ Rosonborgei*. who 1ms been  on a trip through tlie Lai'do-Dnn-  o.'in -listrict has returned to Nelsou,  If is mission there was to examine  anil report on 'certain mining prop-  erties for a miniuK i-'oinpany. ln  speaking of the district last ovoning he skated that the most uroinis-  ing property in tlio vicinity of Duncan City is the lYost Mountain  group, situated on Lost mountain.  On thifi considerable development  has been done. At present a large  force of men is engaged and a considerable quantity of oro lias been  taken out. In-tlie near, future - the  company, expect to be. in a position  to ship, and the ore will undoubtedly be sent to the smelter at  Nelson.  Situated near this is the Liivina  group whicli is also a promising  property." On this * considerable  tunneling has been done aud a vein  of high grade silver-lead ore has  been followed somo distance. A  trial shipment of one carload of ore  lias been sent to the smelter .and  siitisftfctory results have been obtained. More vigorous work will  be carried oii early u'ext spring.    .  Another property in the same  mineral belt is'the 'MeLeod' group,  consisting of six claims.- - It is a low  gradej-ijyer-le.ad property,'_.l\\t the  mineral depositisexceedingly large.  During the next' season considerable development - work will be  done.  In the Upper. Duncan country  and along the Duncan river the  Gold Hill Mining Company is operating several large prospects exten-  sively, and expect to do a large  amount of work during the coming  season.     "*  On Glacier creek,- which empties  into the Duncanj-iver, is the Surprise group, whieh has been developed considerably and is now  showing np well. Wore extensive'  work will be done on it next summer. ' To tho same district, and  located on Hear creek, is the Karhn  group, which is showing up well.  Opposite to the Duncan district  A s=situated-the=large-Bardo*^mi nin g  district. One of the principal  groups in this division is the Frisco,  carrying ��� large ..lodges containing  high grade gold and copper ore. In  the same district is the McDonald  group, situated on Davis creek,  about two miles from tho town of  Lardo. It contains a ledge of free-  milling gold ore which gives fair  values. Outside of . these there are  a large number of other promising  prospects.on the same creek.  On Ham ill creek, which is on the  opposite slope, is the Carbonate  group, which carries lead ore giving  lair values. During tho past season  a large number of claims have been  Rtaked.and more development work  has bpen done than in any seasori'iii  the history of the section. The  prospects for the coming year are  exceedingly bright, aud with the  proper facilities for transportation  tiie district will at once make rapid  strides to the front, and be among  the best districts of the province.  Mr. Mourgues of Paris, chief engineer of the Chapleau Consolidated.  Cold Mining Company, operating  the Chapleau mine on Lemon creek,  is expected to arrive in Nelson tomorrow or next day. For some  time past the mill, which was lately  erected at the property, has not  ' been giving the best of satisfaction  as a considerable amount of the  values could not be saved. To look  into the matter is why Mr. Mourgues is making a hasty trip.to the  property.           Tbe properties listed and ores received yesterday at the Prospectors  Exchange in the K-W-C block, are  as follows: Gold ore from Lila  group on Morning, morning: gold  or.e from Minerva -claim, -Morning  mpuntain;   copper-gold  ore  from  B.

Its buildings are substantial.  In its commercial blocks and public  structures a native   marble of line  color is noticeable.   The - Bank   of  Montreal is an   artistic   structure,  with mosaic brick work.    P. Burns,  the cattle king of British Columbia,  has lately finished one of the   most  complete stores, with   offices,   etc.,  for the butcher business in the Dominion.    It   has   electric   freezing  and cold storage plant of most modern design. - An idea of his business  will be formed   from   his   disburs-  ment of four cars a week of cattle  and four cars por month of packing-house    products.

The  electric jcar system is being extended to the new depot and  extensive  yards of the C. P. It.   The   streets  are well built with macadam".

Nowhere     in     British  /  >(  center of the great mining country  of centra.1 British* Columbia, lies  surrounded by God's handiwork,  - mountains Yaud watercourses that  are so immense that man will never  be able to obliterate them.' The  engine, whose whistle is heard  thousands of feet upon the mountains, seems insignificant to the  vast surrounding.-* and tlio tovver-  iiig'rocks still rising thousands of  feet above, and it startles the wild  mountain goat away up among the  snow arid mist-clad tops. Then in  contrast, from up the river towards  the city, comes the traiii of the C.  P. ii., a filament of the great  system. Nature has been more  graceful in her handiwork on the  river* within a few miles of the  city. The falls and cataracts are  numerous, and they occasionally  broaden out and show the great  pebbles aud sands in great banks.  Here and there a great rock stands  in "mid-stream, as if thrown by a  giant hand from the Itockies, and  the clear water dashes itself  against the obstructive rock and is  scattered in spray. The train  passes close to IJonnington -Falls,  nariied by sir Charles Ross after the  falls near his home in' Scotland.  Here has been. built .an electric  plant of great power, which supplies the electric power to mines  arid cities for thirty miles around,  including power to tho great Leltoi  mine at Rossland; and the demand  is so great that the power is to be  doubled. The trout fishing near  the falls and in the river is the  beau ideal of citizens and visitors.  The impression you get in spring  on the river is high and ennobling.  The shores are clear and cleau, and  the slope of the hills is covered with  warm carmine-colored earth, andJ  ���fiolef.B and erythronjura'are in pro* j  Columbia do the people-attend service better than'in Nelson, and the  Presbyterian church is uncomfortably small for its hearers. The  English church is also in fine form  and energetic. Rev. Mr. Muuro,  the Congregational minister, at  present discourses from the platform of. the opera house, and makes  a great effort to excel in choir-  singing and characteristic texts.  The lovely homes of the citizens  are artistic- "With their green  lawns they look pleasing,' and have  a "Home, Sweet Home" attraction  about them as they recede terrace  upon terrace. Off to the west, on  the hillside, is the Hall smelter,  pouring its red hot matte and  native lead in bars, the product of  jthe surr6unding.mines.^^To_give-a.  description of the mines and prospects would be almost, impossible.  Many still undeveloped will yet be  the envy of the world.-���Hamish, in  the New York Scottish-American.
