And then: to smooth matters over  he added that he was merely desirous  of explaining that nine-tenths of the  work which the city .undertook cost  about 35 per cent more than it was  figured at. *.  City e.igineer McCulloch said'he considered this also ,a personal reflection  upon himself. He then-''explained that  the estimate ��� for the flume, of which  the mayor had complained was made  in January, 1899, for the council oi  which the mayor was a member, and  he had been given one day In which to  make the estimate, although there wero  six f.-et of snow on the ground.  Mayor Fletcher said, he was of the  opinioi that the estimate was made in  the fall, which of course would throw  ii before iho lection of the Neelands  council, of whlth he was a member, but  the city engineer assured him that it had  been mado after tho Neelands council  had been returned, and he repeated  that he considered the manner in which  tho estimate had been .referred to,, to  cast an, unwarranted reiiection upon,  himself. ^ , -  'The mayor commenced to wriggle,  again.

"It isssome-  what difficult to estimate cm rock work  for a flume under six feet of snow.

Alderman Selous then endeavored tb  ���figure out just what power would he re^-  quired. He; stated that at. the present  time, there were 3035 light, on the direct current machines and 1S0O upon thp  'altern-'ator. From superintendent McPhee ho received the information that,  (he load on Lhe machines amounted to  4935 lights ;iind their capacity was 3500.  This,' he; said,; showed 1400 lights~tor.be"  provided, and upon a question put to  him McPhee replied .that he considered  1,00 hoi sci power would be sufficient to.  purchase from Eounington: The low  water stage was . then :taken up with  the superintendent and he replied in-  answer to a question that during January and February he thought the lights  on the alternator would have to be cut  off.This furnished the alderman with the  information.he desired.' He ("till had the  difference of 50 hcn-se power- to a.ccount  for as between what the city would require during the greater part of the  year and the minimum which the company ii sisted upon in Its agreement, so  he asked McPhee if ho thought sufficient  i;ew lights could be connected up to. tbe  system to utilize the 50 horse power  for which the city appeared at present  tc he.ve no use.  Aldeimau Irving Interjected the remark here- that it was rather hard to  expect ar.uwers from the Ptipc:rintendent  to such questions, but alderman Selous  replied tbat ft was understood that the  superintendent was only guessing, as  in fact were the members of the council. Ho was trying to see whether the  putchasf of the extra 5C horse power  would entail a heavy loss upon the city.  The council then went into commit-  long ordeal to which admiral Schley has  been'   subjected-   since- last    Monday  ended tins'afternoon ,when~!his cross-  examir ation was conclu'ded and^heSvas  allowe'd  to  leave  tlie _ witness^ stand  When the judge advocate" finished-ythe  cross - examination    shortly f after    .J  o'clock the court propounded to the admiral   34  questions   pic pared,, by   th'e  members bf*-the court.

Fletcher's stand on the deal between  the city'and the West Kootenay Power  &| Light Company is meeting with* the'  open condemnation of the men who-  mado him mayor. It may be true, as he  contends, that-he has the support of the  "best." people of >the town; that the  "best" people want light and want it'  without any bother; that the bank managers aU favor the deal with the company; that no reliance cau be placed on  the city engineer's estimates as to the  cost of developing power on Kootenay  river; that even if the city issued the  debentures for tho work, they would be  unsaleable; that,' taking it all in all,  Nfelson can't do anything but wait until  times change for the better. Times will  change for the better in' Nelson aloag  about the middle of January next���only  two and a half months from now. Then  Frank Fletcher will be a private citizen,  and the progressive people of Nelson  will care as little for. his views on questions that concern them as they do now  for the views of "the man in the moon."  The appointment of Jules de Labarthe  of Trail to the superi'ntendency of the  Northport smelter goes to show that  young men who have gained much of  their experience in Canadian mines and  smelters take high rank as practical  managers.

Tribune's   London   correspondent.  In it how the Monroe doctrine was proclaimed .and, the Clay ton-Etui wei- treaty *  .negotiated' are described in detail and  the j conclusions   are   urawn   that: the  United .States government is assuming  sovereignty over both Nor! h'and South-  America; that it is striving to restrict  the commerce of the other .states' for  its  own  advantage-   that Canada will  never be content to submit to any other  rule than-that of perfect'equality res-  pecting^he canal, and that her interests  must not be sacrificed   by  the   United  Kingdom for   any   consideration.     Mr.  Mills' contends  that uie  neutrality  of  the canal must be guaranteed as pro-  -vided_f or_by- the. Clayton- Bulwer-treaty-  and that the United Kingdom must not  yield to the demands of what he describes as an ambitious and  not overscrupulous state to erect fortifications  upon the borders of a waterway and to  take possession of it.    The real object  of this article, continues the Tribune's  correspondent, is disclosed in the last  seven * lines, ^in which reference is made  to the fact that the United States haa  taken possession of Dyeaand Skagway  and has refused to submit the matter  to arbitration.   Mr. Mill.', dees not say  so,  but clearly hints that the foreign  office ought to obtain a quid pro quo in  Alaska, on the Canadian frontier, for  tho abrogation or revision of the canal  treaty.

On  lie contrary, it is all but forgotten and  s prized no moro than the junk of the  ailroad s,crap pile.   The lelic wasjiuilt  t 'the Unsted State's military car, shops  tJ Alexandria,  Virginia,  in  the  latter  ays of the Avai. and was used by the  imancipator on his visits to th**1 army  of tho Potomac and to other points during   tho   trouble-fillet   times   of   civic  stufe.    The  old  car  is  torty two feet  long and eight and one-half feet wide,  nd is bullet pi oof, theie being a complete armor ot bteel plate& between th"*1  wall?.    Nothing remains  today  of  the  car's onginal magnificence;  the inside  as devoid of even a bench; the walls .aie  rain stained, having'long ago lost their  last trace  of  paint  ard   .amish,  and  -there are uo longer Aisible the co.it of  arms of tho various stateb ofthe umor.  avhich a skilful, hand painted upon tha  ���panels of the walls.   Nobody would evei  imagine that rich, crimson   corded silk  upholstery  ieaching,"half to the ceilng  in parts of the'ear, once helped to make  of it, the wiudowless hulk cr today, a  marvel of elegance among earlier railroad equipment.  Originally there was but one entiance  to the car," a dor in the corner of one  ���end 01 one side. Eatrarce to the then  > separate 1001ns was had fiom thi"**-  passageway The mir room was larger  than the others, and was used by pros  Silent Lincoln for an olfice and study,  a.T.d also at. a leception room, in which  he received ihe geaeuils of tne -vmv.  It' is' safe to fcay that in this, compartment Mr. Lii'coln hastily wrote th^  _notes_for"hisT"'l,amous~spcccn'*"at_the field-  of Gettysburg.

In 18C6 the government auctioned a  great deal of its railway n.aterlal bullr  ior wai   needs, and amonp  the things  .Was  tho famous coach,  which   noca'ne  through, pui chase the property of president Sidney lMlon, of ihe Union Pacific Railway who immediately removed  .it to Omaha.    Por .some time it was  used as a directors car,  but it.  great  i weight   caused    by  the   armor   piate,  made it objectionable, and it was' withdrawn from  the service,  standing for  j ears under a shed constructed' for its  custody.

there will be some additions to the roll
of cardinals it is certain that none of
these-will be from   the United   States.
The full roll of cardinals is lixed at seventy and tbe pontifical desire is to have
as many of them as possible near Rome.
The real reason for avoiding the naming of another cardinal for this country
during cardinal Gibbon's life time is to
avoid setting a precedent for two car-'
dinals within (he United States.   1'nere
are   more   than   one, however,   within
countries in which there i& a concordiat
between the government and the church.
There is no, indication yet as to who will
be cardinal Martinelli's successor.   Even
the gossip at Rome that Monsignor Falconi, new Muncio at Ottawa, would be
chosen has at least for the present subsided.   It is significant in this connection
that tho selection of both cardinals Sat-
olli   and'  Martinelli   were   practically
compete surprises to those wjio had been
figuring on the vacancies to which they
wero chosen.

Bw. Akehwrot's Farewell
The farewell social tendered to Rev.
H..S. Akehurst in Fraternity Hall last
ovening by the members of the Sons of
England and the members of the congregation of St. Sa.iour's church was
very flattering to tho retiring rector. The
feature of the evening was the presentation to the rector by the Sons of England of a beautifully illuminated address and a handsome, brass clock arid
candlesticks. The address was the work
of P. Shonfeld and was ' read by Fred
Starkey on behalf of the society. Following this presentation, H. E." Croasdaile, in a few well chosen remarks, presented Mr. Akehurst with a well-filled
purse as the gift of the members of the
In acknowledging the presentations
Mr. Akehurst said: "I am sure you will
not expect very much from me upon an
occasion of this kind. So far I have not
been able to think very much upon the
prospect of leaving Nelson, because it
has been too painful. I may say this
p^igting was not necessary to assure me

Le Eoi Shares Take a Tumble.
- The great Le Roi mine appears to be
having rather  a  bad  run   of  luck  of
late.    First   the   able   manager    was
dropped   out.    'Then, the   mine   cage
dropped 600 odd feet. t-And now the Le
Roi stock has dropped from  £8 5s to
£6 10s on the London market.    What
is going to diop next?   Le Roi shares
stood at  £8 5s in London on Friday
last     This   morning' -ihe   shares   are
quoted at £6 10s on the English market. No reason has been assigned for
the sudden  drop,  and  it is presumsM
that the shares of ho Roi No„ S, Rossland  Great   Westerp,   nnd   Kootenay
hti\e   ajso   been   correspondingly   de-
-pressed—The"whole"" may   he" merely
another case of stock manipulation, or
as suggested by a Rossland broker this
morning, Mr. Frcohevilla may have sont

Buller's Dispatch to White.
LONDON, October SO.—The National
.Review givet the essential terms Qf the
"spatchcocked- dispatch of sir Reavers
Buller tt« ffcner«-l George White when in
command of the beleaguered British
garrison at Ladysmith. According to
this unthority the message ran 0? follows: <*i jiave been rep«i»««\, You will
burn J'tmr coppers ana destroy all your
arppiiijiltion, You will make the best
terpis yon pan with the Boers after I
have fortified mybelf on tHi» Twg«la."
General Buller, in tho M.ee?n W},ieh led
to big dismissal from the command of
the first Army Corps, challenged the
National Review to publish the complete
dispatch and to explain how it was obtained, deilaring that he would "then
publish ft peptiflo4 qopy of thfj original
and allow the PUblJc tfi jU<.ge the matter.
The editor pf the Rational Review now
explaine that he goi; the aispatoh from
a civilian who was in Ladysmith at the
time and who said there was nothing
secret about it, He,asserts, also, that he
understands that both general Buller
and general White have officially asked
P-,rniis3ion to : publish ;tho authorized
version and he cannot conceive why permission has been withheld, The said
informant, giving an alleged explanation
of the fact.that there waB no co-operation between general Buller and general
White during the battle of Colenso, says
generalWhite was informed that the attack was fixed for December 17th, but
general Buller commenced the attack
December 15th, to the dismay of general
White who had not completed his preparations. ;

Finding Fault With Dewey.
WASHINGTON, Octooer, 30.—Admiral
Dewey has resigned the presidency of
the Metropolitan  Club because of the
criticisms made by some of its members on the * Schley court of inquiry.? It
tis believed ,the board of governors will
endeavor to have him withdraw it, but
frieids-of ihe admiral-say-he is deter-
:nii ed not to do so. The faun found with
the court,is .that its rulinn-'are unduly
favorable to admiral Scheiy, -'and that
it's • members were "prejudiced in favor
of tho hero of • Santiago. * The criticism
was .aimed  mainly'at admiral 'Dewey/
although  admirals Benham and  Ramsey'also came in for a share"'of it. The
report was lhat admiral Dewey-had also
resigned his  membership m  the  club,
but this proved incorrect.,The Metropolitan Club is teh most exclusive organi-
zbtion of its kind-in the city. It has on
its rolls the names of all t^ie more prominent army and- navy officers and most
of the high civil oflicials.of the government. Admiral Dewey has been a member foi many years, and was elected to
the 'presidency  about  two  years  ago.
