The consideration of tenders for  the supply of timber was the most  important business that came before  the members of the"city council  at their meeting last evening. There'  were four tenders submitted. - That  of the Nelsoii Saw & Planing Mills  quoted $9 per thousand feet board  measurement at the" mill yard, and  $9.75 delivered as required. The  tender of the Fairview Lumber  Company was $9 at the,.yard and  $10 delivered. Tlie tender of the  Porto Rico Lumber Company was  - $9 on the cars at, Mountain Siding  and $10_ delivered. Tlie tender of  the Sayward Company was -$8.75  at the-city wharf   and  $9 50 de-  - livered.    "        .    ���/  The tender of the Saytvard Company, at $9.50 per thousand feet de-.

Mayor. Fletcher   explained that  the question had been before the  council before on several occasions.  He understood, however,' that all  the cities'would shortly be obliged  to take over the management of  their schools and before this took  '' place it was desirable that Nelson  should press its claims for certain  -considerations.     The   meaning   of  the latter part of  the-resolution  with   respect to   the'terms upon  which   Victoria   and ' Vancouver  managed their school affairs, waa  that in these cities the municipality-  was given the collection "of the provincial revenue tax of $3 per head  but which it was now proposed-" to  withhold   from   Nelson s and    the.  other cities.   With respect to blocks  49 it was generally understood that'  the government had consented to'  turn  this block   over  for   school'  purposes, and the money grant -of*  $15,000 was considered necessary in'*  order to build a high school.  The council decided to endorse*  the communication of the school*,  trustees, and a petition in accord-j  anco with its terms will be -for-1  warded to the provincial government.  Dr. La Bau, medical health officer,  reported upon the condition of a  number of the dairies that supply  smilk to the city and urged the  necessity upon the ground of public  health of these dairies securing a  purer water supply to be used in  connection with their business. The  council will act upon the report of  the health officer and require the  .dairies to secure purer sources of  water supply in default of which an  Opposed to Secret Concessions.-,"-,  Berlin, '-March 4.��� Ambassador  i White's conference with the German'  foreign office was concluded during  last week.* The, Associated Press  ^correspondent learns'upon excellent  authority that these conferences are  'due to fuller, and more- definite instructions Just .received by Mr.  ���White from,, Washington concerp-  ^ing the threatened land, grabbing  -in China.

Fifty-Sixth Congress Adjourns.  Washington,'   March    4.���The  house   closed   its session at 11:45  today amid a demonstration from  its members following the delivery  of von impressive   valedictory by  speaker Henderson.   For an hour  the body had been in the throes of  dissolution with little business to  perform.   Shortly before the closing hour Mr. Richardson of Tennessee,' the minority leader, presented  resolutions   testifying   the     high  regard of the house for the able,  impartial and dignified manner in  'jrwhich   speaker     Henderson    had  "adminstered the duties ot presiding  ofiicer.'   Coming from the minority  there was added significance in the  tribute.      The   resolutions    were  unanimously adopted by a rising  yote, then the speaker, in low, and  impressive tones delivered his closing words to the house thanking the  members   for    their    co-operation  through    a    busy    and    eventful  congress.   He   concluded   at 11:45  and announced the session  of the  house for the  fifcy-sixth  congress  adjourned.

The bill is aimed at the  Kaslo & Slocan railway, which re-j  fused to pay timber dues last winter and liad-its engines seized by  'timber inspector Martin.  The Slocan- City incorporation  bill "was considered in committee.-  Turner asked that the sections  which refer to taxes and licenses  for this year be laid over for f ur-  ther* consideration and leave,was  granted."

With this in' view he took a cab  and drove about for two hours and  finally alighted at a restaurant and  went in and ate a hearty meal and  refused to pay for it.   The police  were called, but on second thought  both the policeman and the restaurant keeper, moved by his pitiful  plight, refused-to demand his .arrest.    In   his .desperation   Knight  struck the policeman a terrific blow  in the face, fellingghim.   Next day'  Knight- was" sentenced   to ,_three  months' imprisonment for assaulting a "representative of "the   law.

Victoria, March 4.���Simultaneously with   the announcement of  the retirement of ^Dr. Bodington as  superintendent of the asylum for  the insane at New Westminster and  the appointment of Dr. Manchester,  late of Montreal, in 'his place, there  was presented to the legislature the  _report_ of_Dr.^CIarke,- superintendent ��� of   the    Rockfort    asylum,  Kingston,    the   commissioner   appointed to enquire into and report  on the general  administration of  the New Westminster asylum. The  report  is an exhaustive one and  shows how cost maintenance can  be greatly reduced.  _ The legislature   was ��in   session  only two hours today.   No business  of importance was transacted.  Poverty in Cincinnati.  Cincinnati, Ohio, March 4.���A  case in which six persons live in one  room, whose income is only $22.50  a month has been reported. Of  this $10 a month goes for clothing,  rent,' etc., so that the family spends  about $12.50 a month for food,>or  at the rate of 6| cents a day. Six  people eat and sleep in the same  room. "This looks like almost insufferable poverty," special agent  Durham said today, "yet I expect  to find even worse cases when "I  reach the tenement district and  homes where sickness has caused  expenses and suffering...  Vanderbilt on His Muscle.  Paris, March 4.���Mr. and Mrs.  W. K. Vanderbilt, junior, and Mrs.  Harry Payne Whitney arrived in  Paris Thursday. Friday morning  the three took an early train ond  went to Versailles. While watching  the skaters on the palace lake Mr.  Vanderbilt left the two ladies for a  few minutes. Presently they were  accosted by a couple of exceedingly  swell "mashers," evidently Englishmen. Though vigorously snubbed,  the men persisted, and one of them  caught hold of Mrs. Vanderbilt's  elbow and offered to show her over  the grounds.    Mr. Vanderbilt re-  " London,. March  war oflice matters in  today lord -Wolseley-said he had  worked with 'the marquis of Lans-  downe and there had; not been a  single disagreeable incident. _- His  complaint was that the, professional  .commander-in-chief was robbed of  his chief xisef ulness.. He. had to  hand over ,the command, and the  entire management of, the-.'army to  -a civilian secretary of state, assisted  by^ subordinates with'"-whom he  dealt direct. . S' --'' l" ���. ��� * -  - Lord Wolsley outlined the present  system, which was entirely unsuited  for the army, under which it never  would be efficient, and" he doubted  much if they would-ever'have a  _contented-army.���-Up-to���1895,-he-  (the commander-in-chief)"' was responsible to the secretary of state  that the army was thoroughly  trained for the war. Since 1895 the  responsibility had been with the  under secretary of state, dividing it  into four water-tight compartments  each under a military, head and  each advising the secretary of state  without reference to the commander-in-chief.  "My lords,' I neeed scarcely tell  you," said lord Wolseley, impressively, "that our soldiers do not like  the war office nor its civilian rulers.  You cannot flout the sentiment of-  the array without injuring its  morale." . -  The. marquis of Lansdowne, the  former war minister, replied to lord  Wolseley immediately. 'He "said he  was constrained to say that lord  Wolseley during his term of-office  had failed to understand-his duties.  He might at least have warned-the  government that one. army corps  was not sufficient to crush the  Boers. .The debate will be resumed  tomorrow.

Washington, March 4.���The culminating event of the inaugural  festivities was the inaugural ball  held tonight in the vast auditorium  of the pension office, .with the president, and Mrs. McKinley leading  in the grand march..aud with men  and women distinguished in every  walk of life touching elbows and  dancing and mingling with the  plain American citizen. As a spectacular event it was unparalleled in  the history of the inaugural balls  in the sumptuousness of arrangement, in the bewildering splendor  of decorations and of marvelous'  electrical effects and-in the countless throng taking part in the  spectacle.  The decorations of the ball room  had yellow. for their predominant  tone. No cumbersome effects of  lighter color were in evidence, but  above and on all sides stretched a  wavy, rippling canopy of yellow  bunting that covered the walls and  skylight and was broken only where  the lining bf the president's balcony  Dying From Fright.  Binghampton, N. Y., March 4.���  Edward -Lawson  of   this : city   is^  dying from fright.   Lawson, who is.  about twenty years old, went into!  the woods to fell trees.:   One pf the  trees fell sooner than- was expected  and struck near Lawson.   He was,  not hit by the falling tree, but fell  over unconscious. /He was carried  to a nearby house, and a. physician  found not a trace of a bruise on his  body.    Dr.   Turner  says   that he  assigns no other reason than  that  of  fright   as   the   cause.    Several  physicians were   called   and   they  agreed with Dr. Turner.  Why Dewet Escaped.  Colesburg, March 4.���The blame  for general De Wet's escape is placed  on the system rather than the commanders pursuing him. It has been  impossible to direct operations by  telegraph and the feeling is that  great discretion should be allowed  commanders in the field. General  Dewet marched five miles a day,  faster than the swiftest British  column.

WI)S0N'S  delegates was to vote in -accordance  with their instructions. The vital  question, as to whether the government at the present time could  safely charter tho proposed railway  spur from the coalfields to the  i.ilernational boundary, was not  eve.'i fairly- discussed. There  were but three men who evinced  any anxiety to probe this phase, of  the question to tho bottom, but the  instructed delegates appeared to  consider discussion a waste of time.  The speakers who advocated caution in dealing with so weighty a  question as that involved, found  themselves addressing a distinctly  hostile audience. To such au extent was this evident that two of  the speakers gave up the unequal  contest, while the third fought his  way through to the end, to impress  upon his hearers the importance of  giving to so great an issue even a  small measure of the application  which they usually gave to  ordinary- business affairs. The  temper of the delegates can probably be best arrived at by the  circumstance, that upon a motion  to affirm a resolution in general  terms, approving simply of an open-  door railway policy, without- reference to any particular railway  charter, they declined to accept as  air amendment a .suggestion that  the East Kootenay situation .be  enquired into from a mining and  smelting standpoint. The majority  bf the delegates evidently realized  that 'their mission- there was to  vote, and they did not scruple at  forcing - the question before any--  thing like an ample presentation of  the case had beou'made.   ,  R*>  '". *V.  ���'Tkff.  1*  "��:'7&.

',' i Harry, Bentley.'s figures, touch-  " ing the ability of the Crow's.

Upon/each occasion their accuracy  tf*S  ���--/,  IP-, "  it  />.  'v V  was challenged by local smelter  men, who assured the coal company's agent that the figures supplied-him by his company were misleading. It has become evident,  however, that tho, coal company  has decided upon a policy of misrepresentation. The' check which Mr.  Bentley received at Nehon, in the  direct challenge from J. J. Campbell  of the Hall Mines, was utterly, disregarded. The same figures were  quoted again by Mr1.' Bentley and  challenged a second -time by A. C.  Flummerfelt bf the Granby smelter. But Mr. Bentley is not always  embarrassed by meeting smelter  men who are patrons' of his company Vcoal mines, aud where he has  no opposition easily succeeds in  convincing his hearers, from his  company's figures, of the ability of  the coal company to meet all local  demands for fuel.  The perfunctory manner in which  the, associated boards  of trade disposed of the railway and smelting  problem of East Kootenay will not  inspire confidence in what is virtually the executive of the boards of  trade of the interior.   It  is now  plain that an organized effort was  made by the agents of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company, and its  strong United States, allies, to stifle  anything, in the way of a protest  aigainst the proposed corner, on the.  fuel supply, of * Southern Kootenay.  These agents did their work before  the   board   of   trade    conference  opened.   All, that was left for.

From.  Slocan points to Nelson the Canadian Pacific hauls^ore an, average  distance .of 82' miles for $2.50 per  ton, and the - rate from the same  points to Trail, a distance of 104  miles, is the same. In-Montana the  rate from Basin. to. 'Helena, * a distance of but.41,miles, is $2.40 per  ^ j      i *���* v       ,   r *.  ton, and from  Elkhorn  to Helena,  a ..distance, of 53 miles, the rate  is ~ $2 SO. Another instance is  the Great .Northern rate from  Meihart to Great Falls, a distance  of 60 miles, which is $3 per ton; as  against the C. P. B. rate ot $3.50'  from Moyie to Nelson, a distance of  ,118 mileB. Even greater differences  can be shown between the rates  charged_in=-the_state_of^.Colorado_  and the Canadian Pacific local  rates. Ore from Cripple Creek to  Pueblo, a distance of 00 miles, if  worth less than $30 is called upon  to' pay $3 per ton; if worth between $30 and $100 the rate is $4;  aud for ore worth over $100 another  advance of one dollar is made.  Compared with this the C. P, B.  -hauls ore from Penticton to Trail, a  distance of 300 miles, for $5 por ton.

In   all, other  cases where there are no specific'  orders from owners, the pilot is the  captain as soou-asLhe steps aboard."  The brave," genial, able ^master, of  the   Rioj de Janeiro\wept to,his  death"with "the knowledge that he'  alone was responsible for the pitiful  disaster.   It was for  him  to say  whether the vessel  should  proceed  through the fog; it was for pilot'  Jordan to 'advise, to suggest, but  the   action   depended   on   captain  Ward alone.   It was a condition of  things perhaps wholly without precedent.   The steamer had started  for port when the night was clear.'  The mistake lay, perhaps, in .starting   at   all   until   after   daylight,-  when assurance could be had that'  the   fog   had   cleared'   for    good  When the,fog descended again it;  was'a question whether~ it was less"  dangerous to proceed or search for  a safe anchorage.    The best authorities are divided on this question. >-  de  mail  AFTERMATH OF THE WRECK  Of Steamer Bio de- Janeiro.w;-* v  There seems to be some, cloub't^as^  to   who   was   responsible -for the'  wreck   of   the   steamer    Rio  Janeiro in Golden Gate.'- 'The  company contend that it was* captain  Ward.    The following" taken  from the San Francisco Examiner  throws lighten the matter '*'A ,   '  . As to where lies  the blame  be-  '    tween the pilot and the master de-'  pends in;,whom   was, ..vested  the  '    absolute   authority."'    The-fellow  * __,       _.  pilots of captain Jordan aro silent  at this time; the commissioners re-  - serve judgment and the mail company says the master is the man.  When the-City of New York went  ^pn the rocks at JEtoint \ Bonita several years ago,/the flate Frank  -Johnson was c in-' command, -s.- The  vessel was lost as she was going out  of port.   Then, as  now, the ques-  ' tion arose as to who was responsible,  for captain Johnson, a pilot, was  taking the vessel through the heads.  Tt came out in evidence that the  master of the vessel .warned the  pilot against the course that he was  taking, but tliat the * warning was  unheeded   and   that  the "steamer  = captain'was-pbweriess^forinterfereT  The pilot was dismissed from the  - service and the master of the New  York was exonerated from all  blame. 1 -\ _  Now, strangely enough, this decision is-apt to be reversed.  'At  that time a pilot was iu full charge  of the mail company's steamers and  the master was so instructed.   The  Pacific Mail Company, immediately  after the wreck, has changed its instructions and ever since the master  has had absolute sway, the pilot  acting merely in an advisory capacity. . Written instructions to this  efl'ect are on file in the office .of the.  pilots.   The company will' liav'e^iior'  man in its employ who" does" no��'  know- the harbor as well as any  pilot on the bar.   It is, jiot compul-1  sory for a vessel to take a pilot; and  no crew .would take orders' from  one unless the captain signified his  assent. Conditions in and about the  harbor are subject to change in the  two or three months a  vessel is  away fjj'p^port.- A buoy may have  drifted from its moorings,-the light-'  ship may have been brought in for  repairs,  a   wreck   may   choke the  channel.   The pilots, going  in and  out of the harbor every day, are  familiar with all these changes and  for   that reason   the  Pacific Mail  Company employs them.  The public's general belief is that  the pilot is in absolute charge of the  vessel. This is so in some cases  only. On the transports the pilot  assumes full charge, but the master  never surrenders his right of judgment. At any moment he - can step  in . and i assume command. Those  are his orders. On .the Occidental  and Oriental, and the Japanese lines  of steamers the pilot is supreme  until the steamer is safe at the dock.  Ou the Oceanic Company's steamers  he is ih full charge until the vessel  >  '_ ' *    A Pathetic Story.- ���*     ' "-  Captain Ward met his death in  the very section of the Golden Gate  where for the'"pastf seven "years he  signaled" his" fiancee as he passed  through the straits to the * Orient.  rThe young lady,-Miss Lena Jackson,  and the captain,were devotedly attached to each other,, and from the  -time they became engaged  it .was  her   custom "to go to   Fort Point  with her" sisters .before the Rio de  Janeiro cleared the mail dock, and  as the vessel steamed through the  channel she would wave him' a last  good-by. And his farewell,response  would be' three blasts of .the ship's  whistle.    Miss Jackson believes the  story of the rescued man who says  he saw the commander tying down  the whistle.   - "If: he realized'' the"  awfill*- conditions,- as -he of course  must," she said, "then he knew the  end was near; he  was  fixing the  whistle for his final  good-by signal  to me."      t ,    ���    ���  When the news of "the disaster  was telephoned to the Jackson home  on Friday morning, Missvv Jackson-  hurried into her wraps, and, "escorted by a friend, hurriedjto 'the 'signal  station above Baker's" Beach.   She  had not been told,the worst of- the  fate of the steamer and expected tb  see   the   wrecked steamer on the  rocks.    She was   alarmed   to find  the vessel had gone down, but her  courage did not fail, because she  believed  him   safe in one,of the  small boats.   But as -the day wore  on the intense anxiety began to tell  on-her^and^so^nervbusndid^slTe-  become that it was impossible for  her to remain quiet a moment.   Up  and down the beach she went and  one   hour   followed   another,   but  there was no cessation of the patrol.  She" expected < the captain   would  signal her iu some way from the  boat in which he was rescued, and  her eyes were fixed, strained on the.  .waters   But no signal came and no  word either of tho ship's commander,  and when the night closed in she  was taken home.  It was nearly 3 o'clock when the  most trusted gentleman friend of  ,the family returned. He had made  'a careful investigation and she  knew that she must believe the  word he brought her. "Whatis it?"  she asked as the front door closed  on him; "tell me all���tell me the  truth I" And he did. gently and in  a few words.  The shock of realization was  greater than they anticipated.  There was a heart-breaking scream  aud then she dropped to the floor  and raising her hands in piteous  appeal to heaven, cried r  "Oh, God I not that���not that!  Father, Father, give him back to  mo; Oh, I must see him again.  Yes���yes, even though it be but for  a few minutes!"  Into this supplication went the  last hope of Lena Jackson. They  picked her up apparently lifeless  and only at intervals yesterday was  she free from delirium.  turned  but a month or two ago  from a flying' trip to Paris.   His  rnewspaper employers in Yokohama  were very anxious that he should  remain' to edit a   special English  edition1    that " they ' anticipated  issuing.   My cable was so urgent,  however,'that he refused the offer  and   hurried   home   on    the   Rio.  What his experiences were when  the steamer met her doom he alone  can best tell.   He was the last passenger to speak to captain Ward,  who told him that his ship would  remain   at   anchor   until-the   fog  lifted entirely.   He did not intend  to take any chances with the lives  and cargo in his charge.   My son  was up early next morning and was  mystified to see the steamer creeping through the fog.    He does  not  know why the captain changed his  mind." ~        , .  m  1901  Tf)e First Year of tl\e Twentietf) Century  fS !hl'?E-firm We ^ e,eve".yea? 0,d-n"Sht in the prime of business, manhood-full of energy-ready and anxiousto work  for the buildmg up and increasing of our trade in fine jewelery, Come with us for this spring and see whatwTckndl fo vw  In the meantime we extend our hearty invitation to you.kll toJnspectVur beautifuf lines of ufe-date g^ds V  ALL WATCH REPAIRING GUARANTEED : ..

J. Carson of Hall street, a son.  The Nelson minstrels held a well  attended rehearsal last evening and  they are getting into good shape  for the entertainment which they  will give in about three weeks. The  next reheaisal will 'be held on  Thursday evening.  The Manufacturers' and Temperance and General life insurance  companies, both with headquarters  atToronto.have amalgamated. This  gives the new company a capital of  $25,000,000, with $3,230,000 assets  and an income of $1,000,000 per  year. The Hon. G. W. Ross was  president of the latter company.  There- are a number of policy  holders of each company in Nelson.  Harry Parkin, who was arrested  on Saturday night on the charge of  ill treating his wife,'came before  magistrate Crease yesterday morning, but was allowed to go without  a fine. His wife did not put in an  appearance to testify against him.  This is the second time that Parkin  has been _-in the police court, and  before he was discharged Mr.  Crease warned him not to come before the court again or he would  get the full penalty of the law.  G. H. Wilkins of Kaslo, who  went to South Africa with the first  .contingent, returned to 'Nelson  Sunday evening and left for his  home yesterday. Mr. Wilkins was  looking well, and said 'he had -enjoyed the service. He stated that  W. H. Moodie of Kaslo, who also  went with the firs.t contingent, had  accepted a. position under major.  Hodgins and would not return for  some time. 'Mr. Wilkin's was in  many close encounters, ^but was  fortunate enough to escape without  a scratch. _   ,  NELSON MEDICOS PROTEST  Against Proposed Legislation.

The Nelson doctors oppose this on the 'ground ..that the  desired amendments would fill the  province with quacks, and leave the  "generai^public^no^seciirity^wlrat^  ever, and in any event they hold  that they should not be made to  suffer for any misunderstanding between the Victoria doctors and the  fraternal societies. .  JUDGMENT FOR CREDITORS  Against Chapleau Company.  All the creditors of the Chapleau  Mining Company secured judgment  for their claims at yesterday's session of the county court of" Kootenay, held at the court house before  his^worshipjudge Forin. Tlio case  of the creditors against the company occupied the whole day. The  first creditor was A. York & Co., of  Slocan city. The plaintiff was the  only witness. He said that he had  supplied goods for the building of  the Chapleau wagon road, for which  he had not received his pay. The  claim' was objected to on the  grounds that the mining company  had nothing to do with the building,  of the road and that they were not  responsible/"' for the bills and  accounts that .were incurred. York  was'given?judgment for the full  amount of his' claim, which was  $090. . JBrackman. & Ker -'was the  next creditor. _This was also objected to by the defendants on the  ground that' the notice of motion  contained inconsistent matter and  was irregular, but the plaintiff was  allowed a judgment for $708. "The  other creditors were the Hudson's Bay Co., Cholditch & Co.,  of this city; McCallum ���& Co. .of  Slocan City -and others. All received-judgment'for their claims;  which aggregates a large sum.
