Mayor Fletcher has been selected'  by the people to supervise and manage their civic business affairs for  the year 1901, and it is just a trifle  absurd that he should be required  to work for less than one of the  clerks whose work he is required to  direct aad supervise.  An All-Important Question.  Phoenix, February 14th, 1901.  To   the   Editor of The Tribune:  The Tribune has rendered agreat  public service by drawing attention  to the Crow's Nest coal question,  the importance, of which is not yet  sufficiently realized.    The diversion  of this coal from' British Columbia  mightnot only shut 'down all the  smelters of the interior, 'but might  clo3e down the mining industry itself in the Boundary district, where  the ores'will only stand transportation to local smelters.    The Associated Boards of Trade will meet at  Greenwood on February '28th,-and  this will undoubtedly be the most  important    question    before    the,  meeting.   I hope all--tho delegates]  will-go thoroughly posted on the  subject, as~their decision, will, have  much totdo with-thersettlement of  the question. ��� ��Speaking fov- myself,  I think the best thing to do would  pe to put an export duty on coal.  No other plan could be more effective, aiad eveiy ocher plan is  open to some serious objection. -I  think it would be a great pity  to resort to the roundabout device  of refusing a charter to au American railway into East Kootenay.  After the many lights we have had  to get competing railways in this  country it would be a very risky  precedent to go and ask the Dominion parliament to refuse a railway  charter. Ono great merit about the  plan of putting an export duty on  coal is that the provincial. legislature can handle the question, whereas the railway question would have  to be fought out at Ottawa. The  only objection I have heard to an  export duty on coal-is that it would  work ahardship on the coal mines  of Vancouver island. But .that  could be got over by making the  law applicable only to the .mainland, or to that part of-the province  east of the Cascades; a-distinction  which is perfectly constitutional in  Canada, and'has often been-drawn  in other matters. Let us-welcome  everybody who wishes to build va  railway to any place, and let us  place a duty of $2 a ton on the export from the province of -any coal  mined easfrof tho Cascades.' Yours  truly, " ' R. B. Kerr.  Miners' -Union to -'Build- a "Hospital.  Slocan City Drill.  Arrangements have  been-madel  by the miners'  union to   erect a;  handsome hospital "here this summer.

He returned to  the city on Thursday and a few  hours later the police had him in  the lockup. Emery says he is not  the man, and asked for two witnesses whom he wishes "to call to  establish .his innocence. The wise  was therefore remanded until this  morning. John Thompson, who  claims to be an old sailor, was  charged with using profane language'on the street. The case was  a clear- one. and lie was- fined $20  or 80 days. He did not pay his fine.  MACLAREN - BILLINGS CASE  , In the Snpreme Court.  * The case of MacLaren vs. Billings,  in which the former is suing for a  certain interest in the Yellowstone  mine, near Erie, as it is alleged  that the property was staked during the existence of a grubstaking  agreement which is .said to have  been made between the two parties  now involved, was concluded at  yesterday afternoon's session of the  supreme\court, but judgment was  reserved. The evidence in the case,  which has- been in progress since  last Tuesday, was concluded at the  morning's session. A. H. MaeNeill  of Rossland and R. M. Macdonald of  Nelson,, who are conducting the  case of the plaintiff, made a strong  argument, which was followed by  the argument' presented by-, the  defendant's'^ solicitors, E. P. Davis  of Vancouver and A. M. Johnson'of  Nelson.���; At the conclusion, of the  discussion Mr. justice Irving said:  " Mr. MaeNeill, the difficulty of your  case seeinsjto be that it lacks force  sufficient to justify a court in 'deciding that the evidence for the defence should amount to perjury,  conspiracy, or anything- of that  nature. I, however, reserve judgment."    *  __ Immediately at the close of the  *case Jthat of West vs. Buchanan  was entered... The facts of this case  are as follows: Scherrean & Company had^ a contract with the ,defendant to cut a certain amount of  logs and deliver them at the landing a,t,Crawford Bay. Fi oni there  they were delivered to Mr. Buchanan by captain N. W.' We9tT  Plaintiff had supplied Scherrean  with goods and money, and for his  account took an assignment of  money, arising froin the logs. It is  alleged that the defendant promised to pay this money to* plaintiff. The amount involved - in the'  case is about $1454, but is 'reduced  j5omewhatl"by certain expenses. The  -evidence.qf the plaintiff was.Vbeing  takenjvhen court ad jouraed ' yes-  -terday "afternoon. The ^'defence  ,'will be lieard today,1 and itisquite  possible tliat the case will' be'closed  by this afternoon.

The question  of procedure arose as to the manner  of signing judgment under such  circumstances, and resulted in an  order for directions being given,  calling upon the defendants. to put  in a defence in,a limited time and  in default thereof the plaintiff to  set the case down on, a motion for  judgment. An application was  made for a special jury in the case  of Wigen vs.]Bedlington. It was  adjourned until this morning.
