HAVE  Council Meeting Last Night���Reports  of Committees, Sanitary Precautions, Etc.  At its meeting last evening the  members of the city council devoted considerable time to the consideration of a couple of petitions,  asking for the removal of the Chinese wash-houses from two different quarters of the city. The first  petition was from John Hardy and  others and the second from J. H.  Matheson and others.  From   the   discussion   following  the reading of the petitions it was  evident that the council were almost unanimous in the opinion that  the nuisances complained of should  be abated, but considerable difficulty .was apprehended in dealing  with the matter.  Mayor Fletcher explained that he  had'gone into the matter with the"  city,solicitor, arid his opinion was  tliat the first thing to be done was  to establish that any wash-house  complained of was clearly a nuisance.  Alderman Irving expressed the  opinion that ��� they. were nuisances,6  . and in any event there should be ?  some provision for" preventing.Chi-{  nese from running laundries in thef  center of the city.      /*-    ~       ..  Mayor, Fletcher, said he had no  doubt that the' places, complained  of could be 'removed, but it *would  be well for the council to go slowly-  and-avoid - running  ���up ,- against  a ^lawsuit y for. s damages.    The;  , councilL,   had,7,  the *..power     to  regulate -streets   and   while   such  ' powers"would not be retroactive^it-  would be well for the' council to'  .proceed by bjrlaw under ���it, in order  . J; hat   fresh - nuisances", inight'" holg  %Te^^emsei^eC'^'f^^'' ~- *  "_ *J:   H.   Matheson,   lone" of   the  petitioners,   then 'addressed    the  board in explanation of the nuisances  complained of'in connection with  the wash-houses on Victoria street  and when he had finished it was decided on motion of alderman Selous  to refer the matter to the mayor to  consult with the health officer, the  sanitary   inspector   and - the   city  solicitor and report to the council.  The board of   public t-works  reported:    1. That the work of .opening up Vernon street and Railway  street be proceeded with "at once,'  the   estimated cost being $500; 2.  That the city engineer be instructed  to have sidewalks laid on the east  side of Ward street from Carbonate  -streetJto Silica street and a crossings  laid down at Carbonate street; 3.  That the boulders on  the roadway  of Silica street, from Ward to Cedar  street, and on other streets where  they cause   an' obstruction, be removed, the work to be done under  the direction of the city engineer;  4. That the Electric Dispatch Messenger Company be allowed to use  the electric light poles on payment  of an annual 'rent of 25 cents for  each pole used  by them; 5. That  the city weigh scales be moved to the  northwest corner of Railway and  Baker streets, as that location will be  more suitable than the north west-  west corner of Vernon   aud Ward,  where it was first proposed to move  it. /In regard'to   the   question   of  providing additional ofllce   accommodations at .the city  offices   the  committee recommended   that   arrangements be made with the-C. P.  R. for the closing of parts' of   certain streets in the city and for   the  conveyance to the city   of   certain  property-and that a bylaw be submitted to the council' and   to ' the  vote of the electors confirming   the  proposed arrangement and that the  necessary addition to the   city' offices be made on the  land   in   the  rear of the present offices.    Or lots  five and six, block 10,   where   such  lands are   acquired   by  the   city.  Such addition to consist of   a   one  story building with fire proof vault,  the estimated cost of such building  and vault being' $3000./7. That  a  sidewalk be laid on the north side  of Mill street, between   Ward   and  Josephine when the weather is suitable;   8. 'That tenders be.called for  the city work during   the  coming  year.  Tn connection with clause 6 the  mayor explained that the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company was  Anxious to secure tlie closing of an  alleyway in'block 04 which was  owned by it and also some blind  ends of streets in the vicinity, and  he thought it would be a good time  to make a dicker with the company  in the hope of securing the two lots  in the rear of the present city hall  and also two lots on the corner of  Stanley and Vernon. There was no  assurance that the' company would  agree to the terms, but there could  be no harm in approaching it  with the proposition. The. matter of the expenditure of $3000 for  additional accommodation in' the  rear of the' present city', half was  not discussed. It was', allowed* to  go through, pending the-fate of* the  city's proposal to the Railway company after whicli it" will be discussed. The report was then adopted as read.  The petition of the residents of a  certain portion of lot 182, known as  the Davies addition, was referred  to the city solicitor.  Applications were then received  from EdgMBfcBJH^^^^^Beas-  ley, S. i^^^B^^HB6' C*  MacLeodX_H_HHH|^^^B and  Ralph Bradford toTtneposilfon of  city collector and on a ballot being  taken C. MacLead was declared appointed.  ��� The bylaw requiring a certificate  of the cause bf death with all bodies  arriving in Nelson for burial was  put through it final stages.  Two money bylaws were intro-  . duced and .put through their- preliminary stages. .-"The one is for  $21,000 to" meet the present overdraft and unpaid accounts and the.  other is for $79;000 to retire the debentures'"'for��$76,00.0 ('at present  hypothecated to the,Bank of Montreal." "The^* voting"upon the'bylaws  'will takeplace on Tuesday,February  19th.     -, .      -  'Aldermen .

' "\ - ' ~ y '  Alderman' Selous -gave notice of  his intention to introduce a resolution at the next meeting with a'  view to secure proportionate voting on money by-laws. His idea  being that voting upon money bylaws should be regulated by the  amount paid in taxes or by the  amount of the voter's assessment.  The communication of.the Nelson  Power Company, offering to sell the  city power, was referred to the fire,  water and light committee.

Harry  Bird received a first-class marksman's certificate, while Norman MeLeod, A. Grant and J. Mackenzie  were awarded second-class marksman's certificates. There were four  matches .conducted during the year  and the following are the scores  made by the men :  H. Bird           Al  N. McLood     84  0. Urai-it. ... ...74  J. Mackon/Io   ... Mi  ;- The highest score that  in,the Dominion during the contest  was. 395 points. The Nelson men  did remarkably good shooting,  their scores being nearly as high as  any that were made.   .  The certificates are neatly  printed, bearing the British, Canadian and the League arms. They  contain the signatures of Hon. F.  W. Borden, minister of militia; R.  H. O'Grady Haley, major-general of  the Canadian forces: J. J. Mason,  president of the league, and Albert  Pain, secretary. These contests  are held annually throughout the  Dominion, but last year was the  flrst .time Nelson participated in  thera. The prizes and certificates  are awarded by the" Dominion government.    Uoers Received Cordially.  Sebastopol/ February 4.���-Dis-  , patches received here say that the  four ' Boers who' escaped from a  British ship at -Colombo, ���Ceylon,  sought refuge on*board the Russian  vessel Kherton, whose- passengers  received them enthusiastically.  The return movement of Russian  soldiers from ' China' continues  .steadily. Sixty-five officers and  2800 men arrived on the Theodosia.  VifrNDSpR.'-February -���4.^-The t last  liondrs; have? Seen -paid * to queen  Victoria.     !Her  body2 now ,-rests  peacefully near that of her husband  in   tbe   mausoleum  at   Frogmore.  The final ceremonies were more of  a funereal and pathetic character,  than any of the obsequies which  preceded them.   Shortly before 3  o'clock in the presence of the royal  mourners  the Grenadier guard of  honor lifted the coffin from its temporary resting place in "the ' Albert  memorial chapel and placed it on  the gun carriage.   In the meantime  the queen's company of Grenadiers,  drawn up in  the  quadrangle, presented arms'and wheeled into" line,  their rifle muzzles pointing' to the  rear, at the reverse, and with slow,  measured steps "marched,towards  .the castle gate.  At the head of the procession .was  a   band>playing ~ Chopin's���; funeral  march.    Slowly the cortege passed  "under the massive archway" on "the  Long Vjfalkj which was a mass.,of  black, brilliantly edged with^sfearlet.^  Life - Guardsmen "'kept ^the ,* crowds;  back.;' In place on the gun carriage*  ..was ^ the .same regalia which j had >  attracted the eyes-of millions since  the!march',tov.the** graveVbegan' at  Osborne. ��� Close behind walked the  ,king,2emperor" William' arid _. the  duke of Connaught,  wearingyiark  ~military.overcoatS'and-,plumed cock  "hats and looking pale and careworn.  'In similar dull attire"were the kings.  of Portugal and Belgium. All heads  were bentT-. *The blue and gray of  .the German .princes .redeemed the  'royal'group. ��from, perfect sombre-,  riessof "cblor.yBehind th6se walked  queen", Alexandra", and the royal  -princesses, deeply veiled. The queen  carried an umbrella; but the others  had���theira hands J:olded.  , * As the last of "these veiled women  "passed out' of the" castle ^ there came  two5boys"dressed,'in bright tartan  kilts'and velvet jackets. Between  vwas a yqungjgirl, her fair loose hair  glittering against tne crepe of her  mourning. Two 'of these were the  children of the princess of Batten-  'berg and "the other was little prince  Edward of York. 'His tiny' legs  could hardly'keep pace even with  the slow progress of the'mourning  band.' The rear of thevprocession  was brought up" by '.the suites of  the kings and princes. Down the  TLongr_Walk4_with_the__band_still-  playing Chopin's dirge +his throng  slowly made its way to the mauso**;  leum. The horses. attached to the  gun carriage were inclined to be  restive, but as an extra precaution  a drag of ropes was attached to the  wheels and held by sturdy artillerymen. At the lodge gates the strain  of the band died away and the  pipers commenced their lament.'  There between the broad avenne  of stately/trees the crowds were the  thickest, forming dense black  banks.  By 3:30 p. m. the crowned bier  had passed into the other lodge,  which leads to Frogmore enclosure,  ���where none but 'the royal family,  and the servants were admitted.  The choir met them' and the royal  family and their relatives entered  the burial-place so dear to tbe late  queen, ranging themselves on each  side of the coffin. The bishop of  Winchester read the last part of  the burial service. After further  singing by the choir the benedie-  tion was given and, amid,the privacy of the family tomb, 'theYlast  farewells were said, the funeral  came to an end, the mourners drove  to the castle and the crowds dispersed.

"'There are no troops at Mindoa. The federal party of the- Ba-  taan province, including the presidents of each pueblo, held a meeting at Gra'ni yesterday and resolved  to notify the insurgents, of Bataan  that they must cease operations  within a week or the people will as��  sist the Americans to capture them.  Surrenders and minor skirmishes  continue in southern Luzon. A few  insurgents have been killed. There  was no American casualties.

Cooper came  home drunk   yesterday afternoon  and began quarreling with his wife..  He pulled "out a revolver and shot  and instantly killed.her.    He then  seized the child, "who was a girl,  carried her to the1 woods, where he  swung the little one by the feet and  beat her head against a log until  she was dead.'    r  EDWARD VI!

All rumors and reports  .hat large numbers have been listed  for punishment are without foundation, as only twelve provincial  authorities have been named. .These  the Chinese will-be requested to  punish commensurately with their,  misdeeds. There is a private understanding that at least half of them  will be executed, or requested to  commit suicide, while the others  must be punished or imprisoned.  The real subject liable to cause  delay is the punishment of  the officials of Pekin and the province of Chi Li, regarding which the  envoys have not yet reached an  agreement'. There, is littleYdoubt  that the Chinese plenipotentiaries  will agree so far as the .provincials  are concerned.  Without doubt Li Hung Chang  and prince Ching have been ordered to protest to the uttermost  against the execution ;.of.Y prince  Tuan' or any prince': of' the* blood  royal. This is a source of, disagreement among the'erivoys,; many of  whom feel that if prince. Tuan��goes  unpunished all others ought to go  free.

C. T. U. of Hamiltonis  , becoming a useful organization. Its  members no longer devote their entire energies to the construction of  essays on the evil effects of intemperance and the management of  socials. They have got together  and organized what they call a day-  nursery, in which mothers who are  obliged to support their families  may leave their infants while afc  work. This institution has been  - going for some months,- and the  women are making'it stick. * A normal charge of five cents per day is  made for the care of a child, and  when it is stated that during the  past six months 1000 children were'  _ cared for, some idea of the convenience afforded by the institution  may be arrived at.  F. H. Clergue, whose-enterprise  is transforming East Algoma from  a desolate waste to a thriving industrial center, has"just returned"  . from England, and   has unfolded  another chapter in his'plan for the  development of the iron and steel  resources < of  the    New    Ontario.'-  While in England he opened immigration ' bureaus  at  London  and-  Liverpool and made arrangements'  for bringing over a large number of  miners, artisans and laborers from.  ;and:steel industry -which~-.his*3 com-  'panyisbuilding.;up,-but/so fakas*  .possible the heads of' families "will  be brought out so as to ensure permanent ' settlement. -  The  immigrants'will'begin' to^arriverwith the  1 opening' of navigation> and before  its close at; leasts4000" immigrants  are'expected.   This is the fruit of a.  pblicy*which conserves-to -the province'the maximum-" benefit from  .the'development   of  its  mineral-  resources. _  * The action- of' the -city council  last evening in deciding to1 call the  attentiori,of_therproper^ authorities"  to the necessity which exists *��� for.  reasonable safeguards - against' the  spread of contagiousdiseases in the  unorganized-portions of- Kootenay,  is timely. At--the-present time  smallpox is more or- less- epidemic  throughout the western* states from  Chicago to Spokane, and the' condition, while'not alarming, is sufficiently grave to warrant every precaution. While it is true that- in  recent epidemics of the disease  the cases have ��� been almost  uniformly - mild, it1 is nevertheless  the fact that*the presence of-the  disease; even in a mild form; creates  something in the nature of a panic  which very seriously disorganizes  business, and is followed with attendant financial loss. Nelson so  far has been comparatively free  from the disease, and while the city  authorities can cope with any possible outbreak in the city, the precautions against its introduction in  the unorganized districts are at  present inadequate, and should be  remedied at once.

a certain quantity of logs which, it
ia alleged, were sold to defendant.
Mr. McAnn of Kaslo is the defendant's attorney.
The third jury case is that of

action arises out of the relocation
of two mineral claims. They are
the Cork and Dublin, situated on
Kaslo creek.
That of Harris vs. Pitts is a
Sandon case and the suit arises out
of the defendant occupying - lands
that were once laid out for a street.
Messrs. Macdonald & Johnson- are
acting for plaintiff and F. L. Christie
for defendant.
Wigens vs. the Nelson & Bedling-
ton railroad is an action for damages, as the railroad crosses the
plaintiff's property. Messrs. Elliot
& Lennie are the plaintiff's solicitors and the defendant's are Messrs.
Whealer & Martin of Kaslo.
The last case is that of Marino
vs. Alexander, in which the plaintiff
is suing for moneys loaned to be
used in developing the Marion
claim, which is situated near Silver-
ton. Over four law firms are connected with the case.

BLAIRMORE   GOAL   FIELDS
Supply Practically Inexhaustible.
.i
Information concerning probably
one of the largest.coal and coke industries of the Dominion of Canada
was made public yesterday.   T. G.
Procter, R. E. Fishburn of this city
and V. Hyde Baker of Cranbrook a
short time ago purchased 0000 acres
of coal lands situated at Blairmore,
Alberta/ which is about 50 miles
east of Fernie.    Since the land''was
purchased men have been engaged
iu developing the property and the
•result of' the work is proving most
satisfactory. \ Although this enterprise is yet young, it will probably
develop into one of the greatest of
its kind in*' the world.' At present
the entire western country is being'
supplied .with fuel from the Crow's
Nest Pass .Coal Company, and so'
great is the   demand   that a coal
famine is threatened. The new coal
fields will be opened up at once and
nothing.will be allowed tointerfere
with the success .of the enterprise.
The transportation facilities of that
section are' excellent, as the C. P. R:
passes'-directly through- the  "coal-
grounds. :The Great Northern will
.in a few days commence operations
iri  building a'line - into .the. coal
fields..' There are-two routes uuder
„con9iderationyone is to the.Crow's
Nest collieries and; the other- is to
Blairmore.- To construct a line to.'
the latter place will incur -far- less
expense and. iti is1 quite probable
that is where the line -will be run.
The coal is said to, be, of • a higher
-grade, than*'that'..obtained, in any.
other part of the. province and Ythe
demand for it "is ,already, growing.

The mystery concerning tbe disappearance of James Thomas Downey, mentioned in The Tribune
yesterday, turns out to be simply a
case of neglect on his part to write
to his parents. Murdock MeLeod is
authority for the statement that
the missing man was in Kelson on
December Oth last and is now working in one of the camps a short distance from Nelson. Downey is well
known to several resident's of Nelson, who .were somewhat surprised
to read of his disappearance yesterday. However, his parents are
anxious to hear from him.

Three games of curling were
played at the rink yesterday. Although the ice was in excellent condition many poor plays were made
and there was' both high and low
scoring.' In the afternoon the game
of O. Newling vs. Jq.cob Dover resulted in favor of the latter by
"| nearly 20 points. The line-up and
result of the evening games was as
follows:

Coal from that district \is now be
ing used in Nelson - and' is said to
give the best ofi- satisfaction. For
railroad purposes • its quality- cannot be excelled'-- anywhere - in the
west. From present indications'
Blairmore will be the Pittsburg of
Canada- -r  -
On the property seams have been
traced for a distance of over six
miles by trenches, and open cuts.
At present a staff ofY about fifteen
men are drifting, on' the seams in
three different places. The quantity
of coal is simply enormous so far as
shown. There are two seams,- each
17 feet wide, three seams from four
to six feet in width and another
over-30 feet wide.——There-are-also-
other seams on the property, which
have not been definitely shown.
Experts in connection with this industry and who have visited , the
property have pronounced the coke
to be of an exceptionally good
quality.
The analyses of the fuel deposit
show the coal to consist of 00 3-10
per cent carbon, 24.2 per cent
valatile matter, 0 per cent ash and
only a slight trace of sulphur. The
coke has fixed carbon to the amount
of 03.5 per cent, .while the ash it
contains amounts to only 0.5 per
cent.
The opening up of the new coal
fields will be of great interest not
only to the business" men of this
community,,but, especially to the
mining and smelting companies of
eastern British Columbia. There
will be no want for a coal supply.
If iron ore deposits are found and
developed, the manufacturing of
iron will undoubtedly be opened up
to the great ^adyantage^ of the
country. Hitherto' iron has been
discovered,' but tbe industry has
never been successful.
Other individual'companies are
operating in the Blairmore country,
and now that competition has been
started the price ,of fuel will undoubtedly be lowered.
Mr. Fishburn said last evening
that the owners would lose no time
in developing the property. Of
course no extensive work can be
done until spring, as the coal fields
are deeply covered with snow. It is
expected that during this year over
$500,000 will be .expended on the
property to aid in making the fields
a large producer. Messrs. Procter
and Fishburn leave this morning
for the coal fields to inspect the
work that is now being done. -.
