Trail, Slocan City, Moyie, Cranbrook, Sholt and Columbia. They  did not do much in the Slocan.  Although they report trade generally as <iuiet, they' are hopeful of'  an early improvement and confident  that the wholesale houses of Nelsou  will hold their own against all  comers.  SCHOOL BILL 13 DISCUSSED  The BracMgf^^&MUling Com  ��� hanc|S^^'!Wro,i5:**^*aSi^   -'-  pany,  report a qu*  *=also  The volutfie of business done by  the   wholesale   houses   of    Nelson  during the past week "has been considerable and a decided improvement-as compared with the   preceding six   days.     February   and  March are usually very dull months  ���they comprise the between-season  term.     The winter trade is over  and   the spring business has not  fairly begun, but nevertheless it is  not too soon to speculate on the  outlook.    There is a brisk demand  for all classes of merchandise from  the 0 Boundary   country   and   also  from East Kootenay points, but the  falling off in- orders from the Slocan  is conspicuous. In the latter section  the closing down of' several mines  owing to smelter troubles and the  reducing of the working staff in  others has made merchants   very  cautious  in  placing  their   orders.  Goods      sent      out      to       these  points   during the   week were in  small- lots, and until  mining matters are   on   a   more   satisfactory  basis the Nelson wholesalers do not  look for .anything approaching the  old-time trade.. The Boundary and  East Kootenay are, however, making up the ��� deficiency.'   Goods are  sent frbm this point as far east as  Fernie and as far north as Revelstoke, and there is a well established trade with, the intermediate  towns and camps, ns will be observed from the appended list. The  Boundary trade promises to be very*/  ,  brisk,-ana*" as-tall' the .supplies;-go-  froin Nelson  the wholesale houses'  here'wiirbenefit by  the increased:  development of that growing section. ���  H. J./ Evans & Co. filled some  large orders during the week for  Phoenix,x Moyie, Robson and Ymir,  and also sent on some bills to Slocan City andl Ainsworth. They report business quiet.  The Kootenay Supply Company  had a busy week, filling orders for  Moyie, Cranbrook, Cascade City,  Grand Forks, Columbia, Phoenix,  Eholt, Greenwood, Kitchener, Pilot  Bay, Kaslo, Ymir, Robson, Sandon,  Whitewater, Sirdar and Trail. The  major portion of the goods went to  Boundary points.  The Nelson Saw & Planing Mill  ���company resumed operations at the  mill after a few months' close-down  on Thursday morning and wifch a  good boom of logs on hand for im-  - mediate useTind~manjnarge orders  ahead, are in shape for a busy  season. -The building trade is at  present dull, owing to the fact that  an open fall enabled operations to  be carried on later in the year than*  usual, and a severe opening of the.  hew year somewhat retarded work.  However, the outlook is very encouraging. Lumber was shipped  during the week!to Phoenix, Grand  Forks, Robson .7 and Ainsworth,  while the local demand was good.  A. Macdonald & Co. shipped during  the week to Cascade City, Eholt,  Summit, Sirdar,0 Fernie, Creston,  Rossland, Erie, Silverton and  Sandon. They; report business  generally quiet, especially in the  silver-lead regions. ; The existing  depression, the firm say, will probably continue as long as the.smelter  question remains unsettled. From  other points a brisk business may  be expected.  The California "Wine Company  had an average week's business to  report, and although times are dull,  look confidently for an immediate  pick-up in trade. Their shipments  were to Grand Forks, Moyie, Cranbrook, Kimberley, Fernie, Robson,  Sandon, Ymir and Ainsworth.  The Kootenay Wire Mattress  Company are kept busy but al1  though they have a monopoly of  the business in the Kootenays they  experience keen competition from  outside points, especially from the  American side. Mattresses are also  shipped in from eastern Canada.  However, they have -filled orders  for Rossland, New Denver, Kaslo,  Phoenix and Moyie.    ���  J. Cholditch & Co.havo had a busy  week, during which they sent out  [.goods to Dearin Landing, Victoria,  Anaconda, Midway, Kaslo, Farron,  Jigl&at  business shows evev^^^^^^^ of  improvement. They shippeu^Sdur-  ing the week to Kuskonook, Pilot  Bay, Crawford Bay, Creston, Ymir,  Porto Rico,* New-Denver, Robson  and Greenwood.  Turner, Beeton & Co., had consignments for Fernie, Moyie, Cranbrook, Creston, Sirdar, Sandon,  Kaslo, Erie, Phoenix, Greenwood,  Grand Forks and Deadwood. They  are the only firm who shipped to  the Lardeau this week. Trout Lake  and Ferguson were the points to  which the merchandise went.  " .Starkey & Go. report trade quiet,  although they filled some large orders for Kaslo, Sandon, Ymir, Rossland, Revelstoke and Fernie.  Teetzel & Co., sent 'out assayers*  supplies and drugs to Phoenix,  Woodbury, Moyie, .Cranbrook, McGuigan, Rossland, Slocan, Kimberley, etc.    Business average.  Ferguson"-& Co., liquors and cigars, to" Slocan City, Slverton,  New Denver, Sandon, Ymir, Erie,  Grand Forks, Phoenix and Greenwood." Mr.'Ferguson has just returned from a successful business  trip through the Slocan and the  Boundary.  J. Y. Griffin & Co. report business  fair.

The  week was a busy one. ���  Busy Board-of Works.  The first meeting within a .fortnight of the "board of worEs was  held yesterday when a big program  was presented and dealt with. It  was decided to recommend the  council to lay sidewalks on the east  side of ^Stanley street, from Robson  to Houston streets; on the east side  of Josephine from Mill to Hoover  streets; on the east side of Hall  from Latimer to Robson streets; on  the south side of Hoover from Hall  to Hendryx streets; on the north  side of Observatory from Ward to  Stanley streets; on Robson street  south to Hall; on Carbonate from  Cedar to Park streets. The lane between Latimer and Hoover streets  from Ward to Stanley streets will  be opened up if the recommendation  of the board be adopted. There  will also be crossings laid on Lake  street from Josephine and on Victoria street at Josephine.  STRONG    OPPOSITION,   AGAINST  SOME OF ITS GLAUSES.  Government Ownership   of Bailroads  Will Be Subject of Discussion  Next Week���Other Items.  Victoria,'March 22.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The school bill was  discussed in committee today." The  section imposing the property qualification for trustees was laid over  and will, without doubt, be struck'  out. Houston sought to have'the  mayor and one councilman made  members of the hoard, but' failed,  for the present at least. There is  strong opposition to the principle  of allowing^ the- trustees to have  full power over expenditures and it  will be'changerd so that the expenditures will be as much under the  control of the'councils as are expenditures now under the control of  the provincial government..  The bill regarding .the payment  of timber royalties on land granted  to railways was passed, the Opposition voting solid against it. - -  -The question of government ownership of railways will be discussed  next week, as Houston has given  notice of moving a resolution that,  in the opinion of the house, the  railway from the Crow's Nest -Pass  coal mines to the international  boundary line should be undertaken  as a provincialpublic work.  The members of the, government  have declared to individual members that there wilL be no increase  of salaries to an yof the provincial  officials.  Jaffray is still here and is said to  be anxious that the Crow's Nest  Southern, railway bill be hurried  through; th'e^hquse, so as to allow of,  h is early i^1^in^]T^oti^^^'j^iB,'-  -it is said, been told that his presence here will not.tend to hasten  the passage of the bill, and the old  gentleman is very much disgruntled.  Ex-finance minister Cotton was  on the floor of the house today for  the first time this session. He is  strongly opposed to the school bill  in its present shape and as strongly  opposes the raise of the provincial  revenue tax from $3 to $5.  not general Rosecranz originated  tne 7*an by which the army of the  Cumberland was relieved in October, 1868, by. the opening of the'  river line of supplies from Chattanooga to Bridgeport by way of  Brown's ferry. After a visit to the'  theater of operations involved, an  exhaustive study of the voluminous  records in the cases and a hearing  of general Smith's case as presented  both by himself and a distinguished  attorney, the -board unanimously  decided that the plan was devised  by general' Rosecranz. The secre-,  tary of war has officially approved  the findings of the'board.

Tackled the Wrong Man.  Chicago, March 22.���"Bull"  Flaherty, a local saloonkeeper, made  an attempt to slug champion fighter  Jim Jeffries, but wound up by having a couple of Jiis ribsbroken. .The  encounter took place in front of the  Academy of Music. It seems that  Flaherty had been brooding over  thefact that he had lost $500 on  -Tom-Sharkey-in-the-latter's-fight  with Jeffries.' He had . become  pretty well reconciled, however, to  the loss of.the money up to the  time the billboards announced the  appearance of the champion at a  West Side playhouse. Then it was  that Flaherty decided upon what he  thought the best way to square  things with ��� the man who had  humiliated him, and incidentally  whipped Sharkey.     Just as Jeffries stepped out of  the main entrance of the Academy  of Music Flaherty stopped in front  of him and swung his. ponderous  right to the jaw of the champion.  Surprised into leaving a good opening, Jeffries caught the blow just  back of the ear, and it staggered  him a bit. Flaherty came back  with a hot left, aimed at the same  point. Then there was trouble for  Flaherty. The champion:'.blocked  the second punch andtg&thered the  large form of the saloonkeeper in  his bearlike embrace. When Jeffries' brawny arms closed around  Flaherty the saloonkeeper yelled  for help. It came in the form of a  policeman, who pried the men  apart, but not before Jeffries had  broken two of Flaherty's ribs.  Rosecranz Was the Man.  .Washington, March 22.���A con-  -troyersy which has been pending in  the war department since 1891, in  ���which the veterans of the eastern  and the western armies who'fought  at Chattanooga have been interested, has j list been settled by a  board of officers appointed . in  August last by secretary Root, of  which major John R.

' General Voyron, commander of  the French troops, has ordered a  new regiment to Tien Tsin to replace the one now there.  At the meeting of the foreign  ministers this morning the only  question considered was that of  policing the legation quarters. A  committee of ministers has been appointed to discover China's resources and report on her ability to  pay the indemnity to be demanded  by the powers.  Many ministers are strongly opposed to China having to pay to  keep an army of ten or twelve  thousand men here for the next two  years, thinking this is entirely unnecessary. Even those ministers  who were here during the siege are  tired   of  seeing Pekin a military  camp. TheyL_hope__China_will���be  put   upon   her   feet   as    soon    as  possible.  Berlin, March 22.���The war office has.received the following from  count von Waldersee:,"The Anglo-  Russian dispute at Tien Tsin has  been settled from a military standpoint in a manner satisfactory to  both parties at' a conference between general Wogack and general  Barrow.

The British declare that no offence to the  Russian flag, was intended, and that'  the alleged removal of the Russian boundary marks was neither  by the commands nor' with the  knowledge of the military authorities."   .     * *     - ;  The work on the disputed land  will not be continued until the governments have reached an agreement as to'-its possessions or until a  special understanding has been attained.      ���'������' y,  Russia's Side. :7-  ST; Petersburg, Marcli "22.���A  dispatch from Pekin, giving the  Russian account of the affair, says :  " The British military authorities  have acknowledged that the land  was at the time under ,the protection of the Russians and.that  three Russian boundary posts had  been reihoved without their knowledge.

The development of the East  Kootenay coal fields threatens to  cut the present Kootenay Wage  scale in two. When one mining  company can secure all the men it  requires at $2 per day other companies will not continue to pay  $3.25. This being so labor leaders  might be better employed in seeking to establish a fair scale of  wages for the men employed in the  coal" mines, than in boosting the  railway schemes of the men who are  doing all they can to demoralize  the labor market.  of one of the ferocious animals.  This tiger, he says, is known to  have killed 50 natives iu the neighborhood of the settlements of  Krnngjeng. One day in tbe center  of a five acre clearing a dozen or  more natives were threshing mustard seed. The tiger in question  bounded from a near-by jungle,  seized a woman from the midst of  the crowd and was soon hid in the  high grass. The Rev. Mr. Moore  failed to get any natives to follow  him in search for the unfortunate  woman's body. Taking his gun he  followed in the direction the tiger  had gone. Some 150 yards from  the clearing he found the mutilated  body of the woman. Mr. Moore  waited the animal's return and shot  it, .The missionary says he has  killed 11 tigers aud wounded many  more.  THE  HUDSON'S  ./-  ���>-?-H  3&tee IBrltamei  The Revelstoke Herald gives currency to the yarn that the . mine  owners of-the province will reduce  the scale of wages if they fait to  secure an amendment to the two  per cent tax. This may bo regarded  as a bluff.   The amendments which have  been made to the'Alien.Labor.Act  will now prevent the importation  into Canada of anyone from the  United States Under contract,, but  they do not prevent the importation of Chinese or Japanese under  contract.   Fighting the decision of the full  court, that naturalized Japanese  can vote, does not promise much,  for the province. More could be  effected in securing the cancellation  of naturalization papers fraudulently obtained and in taking, measures to prevent a repetition of such  practices.   Every day brings a new delegation to the members of the provincial government, and every  delegation holds views differing  from the delegation which preceded  it. This doubtless explains why  the government's railway policy  has more crimps in it than a  hairping.   Rumor has it that the Canadian  Pacific and Great, Northern railway  companies are patching up a , deal  over their railway schemes,in,British Columbia. This, however, will  not deter the V. V. & E. charter  boosters from demanding that subsidy of $4000 per mile as the price  for competition with the Canadian  Pacific.  Victoria is enthusiastic over-the  building of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway, but, it  does not follow that any such road  will be built. Victoria was even  more enthusiastic over the building of the British-Pacific, but this  enterprise is now a mere .recollection. Victoria gets a railway-  fever about once a year, and wheu.  the fever is on no proposal, is too  wild, and no financial burden too  SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  Slocan Drill.

HOLT,  Managor Nelson Branch.  Victoria and Gladstone. -  In the case of the abolition of the  purchase of commissions in ��� the  army, she was practically coerced  by Mr. Gladstone. The house of  ' commons had" acted in" favor of'  abolition, and, knowing the house  of lords would oppose it, he asked  the queen to do it by royal proclamation. She was utterly opposed to the measure, but he asked  her in such a way that her very  frugal shrewdness prevented her  from declining. Had she done so  the house of commons might have  : refused to vote the supplies for-the  civil list and various special allowances for the personal expenditures  andperquisites of the royal family,  amounting to over, a million pounds  a year, which ih that case would  have to be defrayed from her  majesty's private resources. Nor  did she refuse to approve the bill  to disestablish the Irish church, nor\  - for that matter any other bill  passed by parliament. She never  once exercised the veto power. But  she never'forgave Mr. Gladstone for  forcing upon her these disagreeable  duties. The popularity of.the great!  commoner was too great for even \  the queen openly to oppose. f  This should not be recorded as  particularly against the ' queen.  She could hardly be expected to be  'personally in favor of such progressive steps. She was at the very  center of conservatism. Her whole  environment, interest and thinking  ^wereof^necessity^from^the^point-ofi  view of conserving the traditions of  the monarchy, and with it, of  course, the status of the aristocratic  classes. It is not surprising, therefore, that she should on a few occasions have shown reluctance to approve, or even opposition to, the innovations of a manifestly democratic movement. The surprise is,  rather, that she should have acquiesced in so much and opposed so  little. This is really the secret of  her popularity. . It was not for  what she did but what she refrained from doing that the English people learned to love her so  much. '  Why .Blaine Resigned.  .[ Colonel W. H. Rossington, speaking of the late Benjamin Harrison,  recalled the incident of the sudden  resignation of James G. Blaine from  the office of secretary of state and  assigned a cause for the sensational  '.act that probably has never been  printed. "Mr. Blaine was driven  to resign by an impulsive act pf  his wife," colonel Rossington said.  "It is generally believed that he resigned because he knew that his  name would go before the Minneapolis convention, but that is a  mistake. He resigned because Mrs.  Blaine some time before had made  a scene in the White House. I got  the story from George M. Pullman.  " 'Mrs. Blaine,' said Pullman,  ���called at the White House and  sent, for the president. Without  any ceremonies she began a tirade  of abuse. She told him that by  putting her son, Walter Blaine,  at arduous, humiliating and impossible tasks he had driven him to resign from the office of assistant secretary and that his death was   due  to the systematic persecution of the  president.     Now,   by    the    same  methods, the president wa9 trying  to force her husband to resign. She  told Harrison he   was   jealous; of  Blaine and had put himself in her  husband's way to   tlie presidency;  The president in a cool and   dignified manner informed' her that it  did not become one of his position  to; discuss such matters with one of���  her sex.   He left her to find a way  out of the building.'   That was the  cause of   Mr.   Blaine's resignation  from the cabinet," continued   colonel Rossington,   "and the people  have_fo'r years believed that he was  impelled by selfish motives."  Esquimaux Dying Out.  That the Alaskan Indians as a  race of reds are destined .to early  extinction is the belief of lieutenant D.'H. Jarvis, and there is perhaps no better living authority on  the native tribes.of the North. "It's  no exaggeration to say that 25 per  cent of the natives in Nome and  other sections of Alaska invaded  by the whites last year died of disease and starvation," lieutenant  Jarvis remarked. "Of course, with  such a death rate, and I see no hope  for a much better condition of  affairs to obtain in the future, the  Alaskan Indians will soon become  practically extinct. The history of  all'inferior races is. that they'die  out on the advent of the white man.  Mere contact with him is fatal to  .them. One cannot but be interested  in the Esquimaux disposition. In  the face. of the disastrous results  to them of the encroachments of,  the whites they have borne all with  scarcely a murmur. There is a;  marked difference- in this respect,  between the natives of Alaska'and  the Indians of the plains, who*  fought to hold every inch of ground  taken from them.  " The Esquimaux were in a pitiable condition from hunger and disease as I saw them about Nome last'  summer. Whole families died. I  remember .of a case where seven-'  out of a family of nine died, all'  within a few weeks. Some of our  ^people at Nome did not stop to consider the condition of the natives.  Esquimaux were often seen dying  of hunger and within sight of the  provisions of the Whites. Still they  did not beg or steal and made no  attempt to take food. The Eskimos are proud. They tell of their  trouble' and sufferings only to . such  of the whites as they know to be  sincerely their friends. Instances  of the recklessness and disregard of  the whites for, the Aleuts can be  cited. Last summer as the steamers  =lay-at=anchor-in=Dutch harbor some  of the passengers strolled over the  hillsback of the town^ They built  camp fires which-proved most disastrous to the natives. >The fires  spread and burned .the grass, .and  with it destroyed the berries, the  bird's nests and the young foxes,  all needful to the natives. These  things, aside from fish, "were ��heir  chief reliance for food."  H. S. HOWLAND President.  D. K. WILKIE General Manager.  IS. HAY Inspector.

Easton, the agent of the owner of  the property, testified that between  the first and second raids he had\ a  talk with Brotherton, who was the  lessee, and asked him why it was  that the place had been raided.  Brotherton told him that there was'  no gambling in the building, but  that at times "a couple of gentlemen used to play cards in his  rooms." Justice Jerome fixed bail  at $2500 and Brotherton was committed. Though it has" been thought  to be impossible to "doctor" a  roulette wheel, sb that the house  has a big advantage over the  player, an examination of some of  the tables taken in the raid shows  that an ingenious method to attain  that result had been achieved. The  discovery was only made through  one of the tables being accidentally  broken. This revealed the secret.  1 It was found that a' rubber tube  ran from the edge of the table,  where it ended in an air bulb, to an  outlet at the edge' of the wheel in  which is the groove for the ball.  The entire device was sunk, so as  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  to be invisible. If the ball showed  a disposition to drop near numbers  on which there was a heavy play a  pressure by the operator on the air'  bulb produced a jet of air directly  behind the ball, which drove it fur-  ther.around to.a point beyond the  dangerous numbers, and it would  then fall of its own- weight into a  place of safety. This device made  it almost impossible for a player to  win. It is alleged that Brotherton  ran a crooked roulette wheel, taken  in the raid, but the specific charge  against him is maintaining a gambling house.  From Portsmouth to Sydney.  The duke arid duchess of Corn��  wall propose to make a-journey to  Australia, and England happens to  be in a situation to seev them  through witha great���',deal of dignity. The Channel Squadron will  accompany them from Portsmouth  to Gibraltar; from there, a division  of the Mediterranean fleet will  guard them to Malta,, and another  division from Malta to Port Said.  Six torpedo boat' destroyers will  form the escort through the Suez  canal, and two warships will see  them to the entrance to the Red  sea. There they will be taken up  .by the East Indies-squadron, which  will accompany them all the* way  to New Guinea, and then hand then!  over to the Australian squadron,  which will convey them to-Sydney.  Thus there will be an escort of  battle fleets all the way from Portsmouth to Sydney.  -  Insurance for Danish Spinsters. *  . In Denmark there is a premium  on spinsterhood, says the New Xork  Sun.   A\ celibacy   insurance   company has���been founded,  and between an insurance company and  a    husband' a   Danish    maiden's  heart 'is    rent' with   indecision.  If a holder of a policy in the celibacy is still unmarried at 40 she is  considered immune and gets a life  annuity.   If she'marries before 40  she forfeits her policy and premiums.  In Sweden and Norway there are  several old maids' homes and at least'  One of them is a most attractive  institution.   A wealthy man, more  than 200 years ago, left most of his  fortune to the old maids among his  descendants.    A supberb home was  furnished and built and managed  by    salaried   trustees.     An'   old  maid     who      can     prove     blood  relationship to the founderfJ of. the  institution is entitled-to a place in  the home.

The Nelson Gun Club will. hold  its first shoot today at the foot of  Stanley street.  The Chapleau creditors are receiving their checks. They are  calling early and often.  There was no case in the police  court yesterday morning, and if  there is no arrest this morning, it  will mean a clean sheet for the  week.  The heavy rains of last night  have made the recreation grounds  so heavy' that the practices arranged  for today will probably have to be  postponed.  The fire brigade was called out  yesterday morning to Dr. Form's  house. A gas explosion in the  stove was the cause of the trouble.  No damage done, except to the  stove.  *"- Excavation work under the Phair  Hotel progresses satisfactorily. No  rock is being encountered and it is  expected that within two months  from date the job 'will have been  completed.  At the Methodist church tomorrow the subjects will be "The All-  pervading Presence" and '"The  Habit of Going to Church." The  pastor, Rev. J. H. White, will preach  at both services.  The bylaw regulating rthe cemetery is still in the embryo ��� stage.  "Keep my grave green" is a beautiful sentiment, but until the caretaker can get water on the grounds  the graves are not likely to keep  green.  There are a number of ' golf  players in Nelson who talk of  starting a club. Where to locate  the links is what is puzzling these  enthusiasts rather than the fear of  any scarcity of caddies.  ��� A few days ago a carload of coke  was upset at the trestle on the  C. P. R. about a mile-from .town. A  gang of men was yesterday morning  sent out to gather up the material  and'made short work of the job.  The usual services will be held in  the Baptist church tomorrow, the  pastor, Rev. Morgan, occupying,the  pulpit. "IU the morning "the subject  will be' "Vision 'and Service," and  the theme for the evening' "Christ  and the Chinese Problem." Everybody invited. ' '  ���    i  , The.' "sidewalk on Front street,  east of Hali, is in a bad way. The  earth'is tumbling down and covering'the path; rendering it impassable.' There'are several, pairs of  rubbers there, which evidently encased the Trilbys of unfortunate  pedestrians whom business' brought  along'that way."  Secretary Swannell was out yesterday raising funds to assist the  Mine Owners' Association in sending-a delegate to Ottawa to lay before the government the, necessity  of encouraging the mining interests  of the province by bonusing a refinery. The prompt response to  the appeal shows that the business  men of the city are alive to the importance of the proposition.  The Salvation Army have added  a' portable organ to their instrumental music, and to its mellow  strains the popular airs to which  their hymns are madb to accommo-  ~date themselves may be heard at  the street corners. While the brass  band is leading the rally in one district knee-drill is going on in another with introductory organ recitals.  The funeral of the late Thomas  Henry O'Brien took place yesterday  morning. The casket' was taken  from the undertaking parlors  shortly before nine o'clock and  brought to the church of Mary  -Immaculate, where high mass was  said by Rev. father Ferland. After  this the cortege was re-formed and  proceeded to the cemetery where  all that was mortal of a good man  was laid to rest.  ' A bowling alley has been- established-wBere'the 'shooting gallery  used to jibe on Baker street, east of  Josephine.. When the old attraction was Tunning bulls-eyes used to  bring the sharp-shooter cigars  enough for his friends, the aroma  of which were doubtless destroyed  by the powder smoke. The weeds  were not popular with the winners.  In knocking down the pins the  amusement does not end in smoke.  NO CAUSE FOR ALARM EXISTS  As to Diphtheria.  All sorts of wild rumors are afloat  as to the alleged epidemic of diphtheria in Nel.son. There is no cause  for alarm. There are but three  cases in the city and these are  quarantined. Every precaution  known to sanitary science is being  taken to prevent the spread of the  disease, and there is good reason to  believe that success will attend the  effort. Two of the cases are from  one household and the third was  discovered in the same locality as  the first two, and may bo traced to  them. It is, of course, advisable  that the citizens at large should do  all in their power to avert the disease by observing the ordinary  rules of sanitation. If this be done  there is little fear. A step in  the right direction has been taken . in insisting upon the  removal of squatters' shacks, whicli  are, perhaps, the greatest danger to  the community. Those who occupy  these wretched hovels generally ignore" the presence' of people who  live in the neighborhood and take  no pains to keep their surroundings  clean. All refuse matter is simply  thrown from the door or the window and allowed to rot ih the sun  if not washed away by rain or. carried off by accident. The sooner  these danger spots are cleared  away the better, in the interests of  health and decency.  On the part of parents there  seems to be a general impression  that children incur a risk of contracting the disease at school. The  result is that for the past few days  the average attendance at the public school has been less than half  what it has ' been. Medical men  give the assurance that what has  been magnified into an outbreak is  under control, so that there appears  to be little reason for keeping ,the  little ones at home. The danger is  over; there is no reason to call wolf.  Keep" the Chimneys Clear.  Of recent date the fire brigade  has been called out very frequently  to chimney fires. Every time, an  alarm is j-iing in" it costs tlie city  $25, and chief Lillie' is 'determined  to enforce a little economy oh this  scored In'f ntiir'e when these alarms  are given and the brigade turn out  the occupant;offttie'house with, the  defective clifmrfey will be ' called  upon-to pay Jthe men, A'city  ordinance provides for ,the recovery  of expenses'incurred under, these  circumstances and.it.4s.intended to  put it into operation'. A test, case  will be made, on ��� Monday morning.  If it goes in favor of, the city there  will Jbe work for" a chimney'.'sweep.  The Proposed Flour Mill.''  The board of .works approve of  the project to establish a flour .mill  in Nelson. The site suggested is  .one beloM the electric power house,  the intention being to utilize the  overflow from thedam to drive the  mill. ' It is calculated that for at  least eight or nine months in the  year there will be sufficient overflow to keep a wheel in "motion.  There is a fall of about 70 feet and  an excellent millsite. At present  the railway spur runs as far as the  gas works, so that by_extending_a  little farther east ample facilities  would be afforded for receiving and  forwarding mill supplies. The  application for the site and water  power is made by Joseph' Jackson  on behalf of himself and a miller at  present operating in the Northwest.  At yesterday's meeting the board  of works asked for a proposition in  writing, setting forth the capacity  of the mill which it' is proposed to  erect and the intention of the promoters as to wlieri' they will start  operations should 'their application  be favorably 'received by the  council.
