 o  ESTABLISHED   1892  TUESDAY MOKNING,  NOVEMBER  19,   1901  DAILY EDITION  TIB MW TREATY  ENGLAND WAVES SOME OF  HER RIGHTS  UNDER    CLAYTON-BULWER   CONVENTION���ENGLISH  PRESS  COMMENT.  WASHINGTON.   November   1.8.���Thc  new  Hay-Pauncefote treaty was signed  to-lay at 12:05 by secretary Hay for the  United Slates ana lord Pauncefote, the  British ambassador,  for  Groat Britain.  This treaty is intended to replace  the  first Hay-Pauncefote  treaty. That contention was amended so by the United  States  senate at  its  last session that  the British government declined to ratify it. Within a few weeks negotiations  began afresh between Hay and Pauncefote, which has resulted in thc signature  " of a new treaty drawn with special reference to the objections made by Great  Britain. From a due sense of courtesy  which  must  be  observed  towards  the  United States senate wherever a treaty  is   concerned   the  state  department  is  stopped   from   making  public  the  text  of the new convention and it will remain   a   secret  until   the   senate  shall  break tho seal of confidence. It is stated  that   various   publications   which   have  been  mado  of the alleged   text of  the  treaty are all erroneous_and conjectural,  though in view of. the rath2r tree  ' admissions it has beci possible by the  use  of the text of this treaty to construct one similar in general terms to  Lhe new conventicn. Tlie principal point  of difference between the new and the  failed treaty is tlie withdrawal of Great  Britain from "the joint guarantee of the  iH-utiality of the-canal, thus leaving the  United  States-the sole guarantee.  Tho  section of the old. provision respecting  [f        the   right  to  fortify   the  canal  leaves  V        that  riglft  by  inference. optional  with  ^he   United   States.   All   commerce. of.  whatever   nationality   passing   through  the canal will fare alike. There will be  no discrimination in rates of the United  States    shipping.    Otherwise   the   new  treaty in scope is similar to last year's  treaty. It replaces technically the Clayton-Bulwer   treaty   concluded  on   April  10th.   1S50.   By  the  teims  of.-, that  old  condition the United  States and Great  Britain agreed that neither should seek  anv advantage in the right of transit  across tho isthmus. By the'new convention  Great Britain yields her right in  favor   of   the  United   States,  which   is  thus at liberty to construct a canal.  Nothing more remains to be done in  resrard to the signing ol the Hay-Paun-  c'-fote treaty which took place at 12:05  today before the senate meots or indeed  until the treaty shall have been ratified,  rejected   or  amended.   If.it should   oe  ratified the state department will proceed    immediately    to    i pgctiate    the  treaties with Ccsta Rica and Nicaragua,  for which  it has already arranged in  ���protocols���pending���-before���the���senata-  which will permit, the coral to be constructed and pi escribe the terms tip-on  which the consent of Costa Rica a?,.d  Nicaragua are given.  It.was in  anticipation  of  this  a'cticn,   it  is  presumed,  that tho Nicaraguan government receit-  ly denounced the treaty of trade and  commerce witi the United States. This  treaty   contained   directions   conveying  rights  as  to  canal  construction which  are to ho replaced by more modern provisions. There was no particular ceremony connected with the signature today of the important convention. Lord  Pauncefote  had    been   indisposed   for  several  days past and it was not'expected that the treaty would be signed  before  the  end   of  the  current  week.  However,  to the surprise of the utato  departme.it officials, the ambasHudor appeared  at  the department about noon  and the work of signing the treaty was  si-on dispatched. The scene was in the  historic diplomatic chamber of the state  department and Itsides the principals,  secretary   Hay   and   lc.rd    Pauncefote.  there were pressnt Sidney Smith, chief  of the diplomatic bureau of the United  States state department;  Percy Wynd-  fram, the second secretary of the British  embassy;   William  Gwyn and Edward Savoy, the secreary of state's pri  ���vate messenger, whose duty it was to  attend to the placing of the seals. The  treaty   was   signed   by   secretary   Hay  ...with a gold pen in'a silver* penholder,  which had been used in the signature  of other conventions and is the personal  property of the secretary.^  LONDON, November 18.���The Westminster Clazette publishes an article  this afternoon contending.that from a  British view point it is desirable that  thc United States should build exclusively and guarantee the neutrality of  the isthmian canal, and that if lord  Lansdowne shall obtain full commar-  e.ial privileges on the canal for Great  Britain the-treaty will not be wholly  ciie-sided. The article concludes with  advising the public to expect and to be  pi spared to accept a settlement which  ���will substantially give us all we want,  but which outwardly will not appear to  be a triumph of diplomacy. By th-j  blundering of American statesmen we  vere put in an embarrassing position  last year, and we will show some mag-  ���nanmity if, for the sake of peace and  .good will, we approach the new settle  ment without a rcollection of the event,  l.-jl use remember that we have had  some recent success in dealings with  America. The Behring sea award and  the Venezuelan treaty were both substantially in our favor, and if we get  open water in the canal we shall he the  E?iners by the loss of the Clf.yton-Bul-  wer treaty.  The Pall Mall Gazette takes a similar vi*jw of the matter and says: "We  are surrendering a right we never seriously think of exercising, but which  might be infringed at any moment to  the serious detriment of British dignity. On the other hand, it is understood that 'compensation will he found  in the absence of heavy toll tariff restrictions. The canal is e> pec ted to be  thrown open to the world, and the opening of that door will be the prize the  British government obtained for the  abandonment of the Clayton-Bulwer  treaty."  Thc St. James Gazette says: "We  have confidence that the American pao-  plc will recognize in the abandonment of  the CI ly ton-Bui wer treaty a further  sign of the value we set on their good  will and the earnestness of our desire  to help forward their aspirations. Her  greatness and the hearty relation between mother and daughter are more to  us than academic treaty rights."  $IO,OOOWO_TH OF DIAMONDS  Stolen From Portland Hotel.  PORTLAND, Oregon, November 18.���  E. P. Lowenthal. a diamond broker of  New York, ai rived here Saturday last  and registered at the Portland hotel. He  was assigned to a room on the ground  floor of the hotel and placed a trunk  containing diamonds valued at $10,000  and $200 in gold in the room. Mr. Lowenthal states that he left the hotel between 5 and 10 o'clock last evening, and  that when he returned he found - the  trunk open and the diamonds ana cash  missing. Detectives were " summoned  and from a hasty examination arrived  at tho conclusion that as the janitor of  ��t.he hotel had a bunch of keys in the  pocket of a pair of trousers which were  hanging in a closet in the basement and  the keys were missing the thief, who was  evidently -well posted in the basement of  tho hotel, secured these keys and thus  effected an entrance to Mr. Lowenthal's.  room. It is supposed that the robber  after securing his. plunder made his way  through a folding door to the basement  and placing a ladder against tha wall  of the hotel courton Seventh street and  mado good his escape.  copper, ccvt'ied with waste soaked in  vater. Then electrician Graham went  to tlie switch! osirc. and threw on the  current. It was supposed to convey the  powerful current into the beast but it  was observed that there was no flash  when tho switch was thrown and the  electrodes nu nifested none of the ordinary symptcms. Even the water in the  waste was not evaporated ard the elephant stood as if. at his meals. He  picked up a plank and waved it to and  fro. After a few minutes theo switch  "was thrown back and the elephant returned to its quarters. Mr. Bostock may  now exhibit him as an elephant proof  against the electric current.

Guarantee of the Triple Alliance.  BUDA PESTH, November 18.���Tha  Hungarian premier, M. Desell, during  the course of a debate on the throne  speech in the diet today, said amid great  applause that tlie triple alliance guaranteed to all three states party thereto  such a measure'of security as no othor  alliance could give.

WHY   PROPERTY-OWNERS  SHOULD VOTE AGAINST  THE WEST KOOTENAY POWER &  LIGHT COMPANY BY-LAW  TODAY.  FRENCHMEN CET RIOTOUS  3200 Volts Didn't Feaze Him.  BUFFALO, November 18.���After the  proposed public execution of the elephant Jumbo had boen stopped by the  Society for the Prevention of Cruelty  to Animals today, a private attempt  was made. The elephant was not even  scared by the electrodes, and the few  witnesses not in the employ of Frank  C. Bostock, the animal trainer, thought  no current was sent through the wires.  Upwards of one thousand people, had  paid 50 cents each to get into the-stadium today to see the execution. While  they were getting in Mr. Bostock was  called up on the phone by mayor Diehl.  who asked him not to allow the execution to be made publicly, as he thought  it would reflect on the city.  Former postmaster-geneial Wilson S.  Bicsell, for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, made a protest and an injunction against the deed  was threatened. Irfluenced by these requests, Mr. Bostock announced to the  crowd that the execution would not  take place and the money was refunded  to ticket holders. Mr. Bostcc.k said the  elepharvt was highly dangerous, and  must die in private before night. He  brought Jumbo into the stadium at o  o'clock, chained to two smaller elephants. The man killer was takn on a  platform and chained to a row of  stakes. Two heavy electric wires had  been run into the stadium and the current was conti oiled by a switch on the  wall. One was supposed to carry a current of 1000. the ether 2200 volts. Four  electrodes attached to the wires were  strapped  to tho elephant,  two  behind  Lively Scenes in Chamber of Deputies.  PARIS, November 18.���An uproarious  riot occurred today in the chamber of  deputies. during the discussion of the  bill authorizing a loan of 265,000.000  -francs-in-three-per-cent-perpelual-rentas  to reimburse the treasury for its outlay  as a result of the Chinese expedition  and to, pay indemnities to French sufferers in China. M. Hubbard reported  that tho budget commission proposed to  reduce the amount of the loan to 210,-  000,000 francs because objection was  taken that France should advance indemnities to the religious associations  and financial enterprises. M. Hubbard's  report was extremely anti-clerical. M.  Ribot (Republican) replied to M. Hut-  bard, protesting against his report,  which he denounced as shameful,  whereupon M. Berteaux (Socialist) exclaimed that M. Ribot deserved to have  his ears boxed. A.t this the Centrists  vehemently protested, while the Socialists cheered. Amid the din M. Deschanet, president of the chamber, called  upon M. Berteaux to withdraw. . This  M. Berteaux refused to do and renewed  outcries and hanging of desks, resulted.  M. Deschanet continued ringing his bell  until the hubbub was subdued, when he  asked the chamber to censure-M. Berteaux. This was voted. M. Ribot then  resumed his reply to M. Hubbard's report, but the Socialists commenced their  noisy opposition, while the Centrists responded equally loudly until the uproar  became so deafening and continuous  that M. Deschanet after vainly clanging  his bell and calling for ojder left th-3  chair and the session was suspended.  Subsequently the session was resumed  and M. Ribot concluded his speech. The  chamber then adjourned.  Punished for Dueling.  BERLIN, November 18.���The court  martial to inquire into the duel between  lieutenant Blackowitz and lieutenant  Hildebrand, both army officers at Am-  .sterburg, east Prussia, in which tha  former was killed, has sentenced lieutenant Hildebrand to two years' imprisonment.

WASHINGTON, November 18��� Surgeon general Wyman of the Marine  Hospital service today received a cablegram   from    past    assistant    surgeon  Thomson at Liverpool saying that city  the ears and two further back on the I today was officially declared free from  body. These electa des wc*re made of J plague.  The silly' electioneering circular issued by -mayor Fletcher and aldermen  Hamilton, Gillett, Pateison, and Selous  states that the property-owners opposed to the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company by-law do not use arguments or give reasons for opposing  it;r they simply use vile insinuations  against the motives of the mayor and  the four aldermen who favor the bylaw. If Thc Tribune reported street gossip, it could give several columns of  opinions that might ieflect on the motives that actuate mayor Fletcher and  .aldermen Hamilton, Gillett, Paterson.  and Selous,- and their able adjutant,  Charles Augustus Waterman, in their  efforts to get. the property-owners of  Nelson to ratify a deal that certainly  nosns loss to the city, however much  gain it may irean to the West Kootenay Power & Light Company and  others.  But The Tribune "will discuss the  question at .is-suo from the standpoint  lhat "all men are like Caesar's wife,  above resrofich.  First. The- people of Nelson hayo declared in favor of municipal ownership  of public utilities, snd in canning out  that prirciple have expended over $70,-  000 on an electric lighting plant and  over $100,000 on a waterworks system.  Every time the property-owners have  teen asked to ratify by-laws for the  pui pose of raising money- to extend  these two utilities the by-laws have  been ratified by large majorities. Therefore it cannot be said that the property-  r'owi.ers of Nelson are unwilling to further continue ou tlie lines on which they  hf:ve made such "a good beginning.  Seccnd. Both the electric. ��� lighting  ana waterworks systems have been  nroney-makers for the* city; they have  both paid operating and maintenance  e>perses, irterest and ' sinking fund  charges, and have* turned in thousands  of dollars in addition, money which  was used -ir grading si reefs, building  sidewalks, and paying other general expenses of the city.  Third. The rrofiifc> made in operating  the electric lighting and waterworks  systems have kept real estate taxes lower  in Nelson than in- any other" city in  British Columbia.  Fourth. Ir. operating the electric  lighting and waterworks systems, the  city has acquired several valuable  water records, one of which is for water  from Kootenay river at a point about  ten miles west of the city. In order to  make this last-named record of any  -usc,-a-sitemijst-be-acf|uired-for-a-power-  station. This site has been selected,  surveyed, and applied for; but the application for purchase is'being opposed  by the West Kootenay Power & Light  Company; a company that is 'seeking  to secure absolute control of all the  water in Kootenay river by getting  title-to all the land that can possibly  be utilized for sites for power stations.  Fifth. The lciger the citj' delays action in securing the title to the land  it has applied for, the more difficulty  it will have in securing title; and the  ratification of the by-law to be voted  or. today will be an intimation to the  provincial goveri ment that the city is  not in earnest in pressing its claims  for the land in question.  .  Sixth. The proposed by-law is entirely one-sided; ard all in favor of the  West Koot'.-i-ny Power & Light Company. The clause which binds the city  to pay for pewer on the basis of the  highest load carried during any month  for all the er.suing months is not such  a one as would be made by men who had  only the best interests of the city in  view.  Seventh. The contention of the West  Kotenay Power & Li^ht Company that  they cannot r-npply the city with power  unless an agreement is entered into is  .absurd, for has nut the company been  supplying P. Burns & Co. with both  power and light for nearly two years,  end tl-.at two over lines built by the city  at an expense of nearly. $1000, for which  the city has not charged eithei P. Burns  & Co. or the- West Kootenay Power &  Light Company one cent for the use  of such wires? .  Eighth. Thi** tramway company claims  it is being badly used by the city, inasmuch as they are not allowed to dispose of their surplus power to consumers direct. In other words, they are being badly used for not being given the  right to engage in tho electric lighting  business in Nelpon. That company  made a bad baigain with the West  Kootenay Pcwer & Light Company, inasmuch as they arc.paying for twice  the power they use. ar.d the bargain has  three moro ycrirs to run. Becnuse the  tramway company made a bad bargain,  is that nny reason why the City of  Nelson should mfko a worse one?  Ninth. The trtmway con pany gets  no benefit out of the proposed deal between the city and ihe West Kootenay  Power & Light Company, other than  the power company promises to pay the  wages of the two men employed at the  power company's ��ub-station, wag��s  now paid by tlie tramway company.  This is mere moonshine, for the power  company has contracted to supply the  Hall Mines smelter with power, and  the power so contracted for will be delivered at the same sub-station as is  now used by the tramway company. So,  is it likely that the tramway company  would continue to pay the wages of  men who are controlling machinery  used to deliver power to the smelter?  Tenth. Why is the West Kootenay.  Power & Light Company so anxious to  get an entrance into the city of Nelson,  -jf it is not in the hope that some day  it will be able to secure that rich plum,  the electric lighting business of the  city? If it has been able to secure the  willing aid of a mayor and four aldermen after three years' of effort, in six  years they may be able to capture the  city council solid.  Eleventh. The property-owners of  Nelson'want to see the town advance,  for only by its advancement can real  estate values be maintained or enhanced. This advancement can only  te-brought about by the city being in  a position to offer advantages to those  .wishing to locate hero to engage in industrial enterprises. What advantages  could Nelson offer anyone if the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company is  allowed to secure a monopoly of the  water in Kootenay river, or if that  company controls the electric lighting  or sale of electric power in Nelson?  Twelfth. IF THE CITY OF NELSON  WAS IN A POSITION TO SUPPLY  POWER, THE PROPOSED LEAD  SMELTER AND REFINERY WOULD  BE LOCATED HERE WITHOUT ANY  QUESTION. If this is a statement of  fact regarding one industry that means  so much for the whole of Kootenay,,  why is it not equally true'of other industries?  ^The above are some of the reasons  why property-owners should oppose the  by-law on which a vote will be taken  today. In none of them are any insinuations against mayor Fletcher or the  four aldermen who are supporting him,  But a mayor and aldermen who consort with men who-were never known  to work for any scheme if there was  not something in it for them should not  expect to be looked upon without suspicion.  Property-owners who mark their ballots as below will make no mistake today:  with the Canadian government in regard to an offer made some time ago  in connection with the Merritt affair.  Tlie government then offered Imperial  authorities facilities for recruiting in  Canada. Great Britain wants mounted  infantry and it is likely that an arrangement will be made for recruiting a force  here.  Venezuela-Co'orabia Armistice.  WILLEMSTADT, Island of Curaco,  November 18.���Owing to the very strict  censorship maintained in Venezuela1 it  is impossible to learn details of the Venezuelan-Colombia .armistice. Because of  the flooded condition of the frontier  country news of this agreement comes  out slowly. It is reported this armistice was also signed between the Colombian liberals and revolutionists and  the Colombian government and that it  terminates November 20th.  1W ON B1C0BD  , Drapged to Death hy a Horse*,  LANCASTER, Pennsylvania, November 18.���Michael Rendler, a.farmer of  "Mount Joy township, was dragged to  death by a horse today. Rendler was  thrown from the horse he was riding  and the animal ran for a quarter of a  mile, when it turned and came back to  the farm; dragging Rendler.

THE TALE OF A SURVIVOR  Men Had a Premonition of Danger.  POCAHONTAS, Virginia; November  18.���The work of removing fallen slate  and debris from the Baby mine still  continues. This morning the body of  Feritz Monitor was found entombed in  a room on the west side. He wis living,  but a few hours more no dcubt would  have brought death. For six hours physicians worked with him before he was  restored to consciousness. He is yet  feeble, but is likely to recover. There  was great rejoicing when the news  spread that he was recovered alive.  Moulter says that all within the mine  on Thursday commented on the heaviness of the atmosphere and that a number of the men left before he did. Ho  soon found that danger was imminent  and started to run from the drift. A  heavy report, which shook the mountain, was heard and an instant later a  huge cloud of smoke and flame was seen  coming. He lost sight of his companions, but he turned into a side room as  quickly as possible and was shut off  by falling slate. Possibly two days  elapsed before he succumbed to the foul  air.

LONDON, November 18.���Lead,  2s 6<L  ��11  The meeting of the city council last  evening demonstrated one thing very;  clearly, that is, that the members of tha  council who are favoring tho deal with'  the West Kootenay Power & Light Company, ir. spite of all their professions  to the contrary, are opposed to the city,  installing and owning its own plant.  This very" interesting feature waa  brought out by the vote upon tho bylaw introduced by alderman Irving,  which authorized the submission to tha  ratepayers for their approval or rejection of a by-law for the borrowing of  $150,000 for the Installation of a ^oweri  plant on Kootenay river! The -motion,  for the first reading of the"by-law waa  moved by alderman Irving and seconded1  by alderman Madden, and was adopted'  without division. The by-law which had  been drafted by the" city solicitor waa  then read by the city clerk, after which  the opposition in the city council to the  principle of_ municipal ownership, manifested, itself. , - z  Alderman Selous, who is opposed tq  the expenditure necessary, to the in- -  stallation.of any,city plant/ took the"  lead in the opposition" to the byrlaw. He| -  asked the mayor what he. had to report^  with respect to the power site desired-^  by the city.  ���. .'.-     . ;--       t  Mayor Fletcher replied ' that,' he received several letters from the provincial government with respect to the site  and the government now- seemed to be  very anxious to go into the question.  From the letters he had received it was  e\ ident that the government had agreed  to hear the adverse claims of the West  Kootenay. Power & Light Company to  the city's application for tho site, and It  was but a matter of time until the rival  claims could'be-heard."-.-Ifon..Mr. Well****t_  was at present absent- from "Victoria,  but he had been assured that upon  the return of the minister of land3 and  works the government would be prepared to take the matter up and give its  decision, one way or the other.  The reply of the mayor was evidently  expected by alderman Selous, and he at  once dropped in the observation that it  would be impossible for the council to,  go into the question of cost until it had" *  made sure of the site the city was after.  Alderman Madden said he did not  think there was any trouble to be anticipated over the question of the site,  but alderman Selous at once retorted  that he did not feel like expressing himself upou the question of the by-law until the site had been secured and the  council was in a position to estimate th9  cost of the proposed work. The site  that the city was after was a very desirable one, and until it was secured ho  was���opposed���to-advancing-t he���by-law;���  introduced any further.  Alderman Irving replied that the council had an estimate of cost before It,  which should be sufficient for present  purposes; but to this alderman Selous  rejoined that the "estimate was based  upon a site at present in dispute, and  until the site was secured ho considered  any further action was premature.  Mayor Fletcher was ready with1  another obstacle in the way of the city  installing its own plant. He thought  the size of the plant should be decided  upon. His view of the matter was that  a plant capable of extension to 3000)  horse-power should be installed, and  nothing should be done, in his opinion,  until this detail was decided upon.  This was just the sort of excuse that  alderman Hamilton was looking for  upon which to pin his reasons for voting  against tho installation of ai city plant.  He thought the council had not sufficient  information to go upon.  Alderman Irving, in reply to this objection, said that it could be met before  tbe by-law was submitted to the ratepayers, and so far as the question of the  site was concerned he was of the opinion that the city stood a better chancel  of securing it if some evidence was given  by the council of its intention to turn,  the site to account. He was in favor of  pushing the matter along, and ho  thought this end would bo attained by,  the adoption of the by-law, which waa  seconded by alderman Madden.  Alderman Selous moved an amendment to this to the effect that.the bylaw be read a second time after the city  had secured the site. He added, thatj  until the city had secured the site hei  was opposed to spending any money.  Alderman Paterson seconded tha  amendment.  Mayor Fletcher said he agreed ...with1  alderman Selous. He did not think it  would be business-like for the council  to push the matter. He added that aa  the amendment had been moved and  seconded it was not necessary to put  tbe amendment, because a by-law could  not be advanced a second stage at one  meeting of the council unless it wa3  favored by at least two-thirds of thel  members. He then informed alderman  Irving that he could move the second  reading of the by-law at the next meeting of the council.  Alderman Irving dissented from the  ruling of the mayor.   He said he did not  [Continued on Fourth Page.]   . ...  -al  '-\%1  -jsa  y til  NK.f  l\  04  -3  t.

On Saturday next, subscribers  whose Tribunes are delivered by  carrier will be expected to pay  the carrier TWENTY. CENTS, the  subscription price for the current  week.  Mayor Fletcher and aldermen Hamilton, Gillett, Paterson, and Selous have  placed themselves on record as being  opposed to the city putting in a power  plant on Kootenay river. They did this  last night when they voted against the  second reading of a by-law authorizing  the city to borrow $150,000 to be used for  installing an up-to-date power plant.  All of their former professions of honesty of- purpose must now be looked upon as mere subterfuges. These five men  evidently have never been in favor of  civic ownership of the electris lighting  system, and are now willing that the  city's investment of $70,000 shall become a worthless asset.,�� No explanation  they can make will lead the people to  believe that they are opposed to the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company's efforts to force Nelson into a position of depeuder.ee on that company for  power./ This is a humiliating admission  for The Tribune to make, seeing that it  supported these-men for the offices they  now hold; supported two of them in  particular because of specific pledges  made on tho very issue that they are  now doing their utmost to kill. Who  wrote mayor Fletcher's Address to the  Electors of Nelson, January last, an address to which he willingly affixed his  signature in the presence of witnesses?  Alderman Gillett in his address, to  which he affixed his signature without  hesitation, pledges himself to work for  "the installation of an electric power  " plant on Kootenay river> so that Nel-  "ron will be ia a position to offer La-J  MORLEY & LAING  Successors to Thomson Stationery Co., Ltd.  NELSON. B. C.  " ducements to industrial enterprises."  The man who wrote mayor Fletcher's  address, knew whom he was dealing  with, and wished to place him (Fletcher)  on record so that there, could be no  doubts as to where he (Fletcherstood on  the question of allowing the West Kootenay. Power & Light Company, an entrance into the city. Without such a  pledge, Frank Fletcher could no more  have been elected mayor of Nelson by  acclamation than he could now be elected poundkeeper by a popular vote.  **Had. alderman Gillett declared .himself  in January last as he'did last night, and  as he has been doing for a month past,  trie confidence reposed in'him by the  people of tho East Ward would not have  been so rep'osed./It is true that alderman  Paterson and alderman Selcus did not  make specific pledges" on the question at  issue; but had it been known that they  would have acted as-they have, neither  of the two would have been made an  alderman by acclamation. But-there is  one consolation,-neither Frank-Fletcher,  nor Harold Selous nor John Paterson  nor W. G. Gillett is likely ever again  to hold an office of honor' or trust in  which- the electors' of Nelson have a  voice.  Why -were mayor Fletcher and aldermen Hamilton and Gillett and Paterson  ana Selous so willing to do the'bidding  of L. A Campbell, manager of the West  Koot<i.ay Power & Light Company of  -Rossland, and so' unwilling to grant a  respectful request made by John A.  Kirkpatrick, Charles J.,Wilson, J. Fred  Hume, John J. Malone/ W. F: Teetzel,  James, A. Gilker,.W. R: Seattle, E. C.  -Tja^es, John A. Turner, Jacob Dover,  -John Linebaugh, Peter Lamont, James  sLawrence, W. J. Murphy, E. B. Irving,  -A. J. Marks, August Thomas, Gust Eric-  rson, and over twenty olherproperty-own-  ers of Nelson? Of course, no one, for-  7an instant, would believe that the manager of the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company would use money to  secure the passage of legislation that  gives him an entering wedge into a .-.ity  that he has tried for three years to enter;  and no one would suspect" that Charles  Augustus Waterman is working solely  for glory in doing the bidding of those  who favor the ratification of a by-law  that gives the West Kootenay. Power &  ^Light���Company-so-soft���a-^snap-as���it  would: have if the .by-law to be voted  on today is carried.  Does it'not seem strange that, mayor  Fletcher and aldermen Hamilton and  Gillett and Paterson and Selous are  unwilling to let the property-owners  of Nelson decide.for themselves whether  or not they want to build a power station on. Kootenay river? What right  have these fiyemen to deny the; property-owners of Nelson such a privilege?  Probably the property-owners of Nelson  are "hoboes," not to be trusted with  the handling of their own affairs. Probably the "better class," of which mayor  Fletcher and alderman Selous are fair  representatives, so utterly oppose  civic ownership, of public utilities that  alderman Hamilton and alderman Paterson and alderman Gillett are afraid that  Nelson will become depopulated if the  "better class'' are not allowed to have  their own way.  tf> SPECIAL SALE FOR THIS WEEK ONLY OF LADIES' AND CHILDREN'S FURS.  iii We will offer our complete stock of Furs at prices never before equalled in this city,  ."

Her health has been somewhat affecte'J  by her continual "confinement and'hard  fare, but she expresses herself as still  confident-of ultimate release.  A letter to Mr. Dickinson, diplomatic  agent of "the United States at Sofia, replying to his proposals, concerning a  ransom, says the brigands will hold out  for a figure very- much above the sum  at Mr. Dickinsonfs command.' The brigands interpret Mr. Dickinson's not having fixed on the sum he is willing to pay  and on a time limit as being indications  that he can, get more money. They also  demand immunity from prosecution.  But it is impossible for the diplomatic  agent of the ^United "States here to have  power, to bind the - government of Bulgaria and Turkey. .This point, however,  is not'likely ;to be a "serious obstacle in  the way, of the negotiations.''  . WASHINGTON, " November 18.���Another, cablegram rcctived from United  States consul-general Dickinson at  Scfia' today, indicates tbat, while Miss  Stone has not yet been ransomed, there  is reason for feeling reassured for her  future. The dispatch fuither furnished  evidence that Mr. Dickinson remains  in direct communication with.the brigands or their agents.  Germany's Cordial Feeling.

The great  ���sorrow which came to your country  (through the tragedy, in Buffalo has.  greatly aroused tho sympathy ���. ot the  German people who aro i- cTc-sely united  to the people of tlie United States by  the many ties, of blood- ana friendship.''  Before' closing the interview he said:  ."You are; aware that at regular intervals reports appear in the newspapers  to the' effect that Germany is trying to  acquire coaling stations or a foothold of  some^klnd in South America or in the  West Indian waters. Tlie reports are  started again and again by our enemies,  ���who-dont't like to see us on too friendly  terms with the United States. I can tell  you now thatJI am officially authorized  to state that Germany has no such purpose. I want to deny now, once for all,  these ever recurriig reports in an emphatic and unqualified way. I have  told this to the president, who was  specially gratified by it.  J^^U^^ <f K&tfons din0+ifi  ?<rurW?  #  TELEPHONE 39.  P. O. BOX 627.  Nelson Saw & Planing Mills  XiiayEITEJID.

WASHINGTON,      November      18. ���  Postmaster general William Mullock of  Canada conferred with postmaster gen-  ��CE  T  Albert Edward McPhillips, M.P.P., of  Victoria, is said to be a most consistent legislator.

A vote FOR the By-Law today means  an INCREASE in real estate taxes next  year, for the city will be compelled to  pay thousands of dollars for power it  will not use, just as the tramway company is doing, and such payments mean  that there will be less money available  for street improvements unless money  is raised by increasing taxes or by the  sale of debentures.

WASHINGTON, November 18. ���  Baron yon Hehgel Mullock, the ambassador from Austria-Hungary to the United  States, who has just returned from a vacation of several months spent in  Vienna, called on president Roosevelt  today. The ambassador.conveyed to the  president emperor Francis Joseph's  best wishes for the success of his administration and the prosperity of his country. Baron von Hengel Mullock has returned to the United States charged  with no particular or important diplo-;  matic mission. He says that Austria-  Hungary is taking no active interest in  the' Stone abduction case. During the  past thirty years, he says, half a dozen  such abductions have occurred iii the  same region, but they have not attracted widespread attention, yet the brigands never before made such exorbitant  demands. "The brigands," said" he, "evidently believe that a ransom of $100,-  000 more or loss is a mere bagatelle to  the country of Goulds and Vanderbilts."  The Manchurian Treaty.

THE FOUNDER OF MOLSDN  Again Recoups His Fortune. _  MOLSON, Washington, November 14.  ���[Special correspondence of The Tribune.]���George B. Meehem, the erstwhile  mino operator and townsite promoter  of the Reservation, has again struck it  rich. Word comes from New York that  he has recuperated his fallen fortunes  to the extent of $250,000 made in oil  speculations.  Meehem drifted into the north half of  the Colville Indian reservation a little  over a year before it was thrown open  for homestead settlement, on October  10th, 1&00. lie came from Montreal,  ���where he was engaged in the stock brokerage business. Debonnairc in appearance, free and easy with acquaintances  and withal having money to spend, he  soon attiacted attention. For a time he  put in much of his time living at the  hest hotels between Nelson and Greenwood, British Columbia. He was on the  lookout for a mining proposition to handle back east. Finally he mado Chesaw  his headquarters and spent several  months in the Myers Creek valley.  Previous to his entry into the upbuilding of the Reservation, Meehem had  won and spent three fair sized fortunes.  In 1S95 he was operating on the Colorado Springs stock exchango. For several months immediately previous to the  crash���ai the time president Cleveland  issued his famous Venezuela message���  Mechem's earnings were rated at over  $100,000 a month. He was one of the  boldest operators and heaviest plungers  on the. exchange. To carry on his business he established branch offices al  Denver,' Cripple Creek, Chicago, and  Montreal. A private wire connected his  head office at the Springs with his Chicago branch. For this item alone he  paid $22,000 a year. Domorized by the  bursting of the boom, he .closed down  his offices and left Colorado for Montreal. His winning personality soon attracted to him a large circle'of wealthy  Montrealers. He formed a partnership  with D. li. Cameron and continued in  the brokerage business. Before long he  was again on his feet and looking around  for new fields to conquer.  In October 1899 he came west and visited Myers GreeTe, and" conceived the  idea of establishing a town of his own.  He secured an option on the Poland  China mine, at the head of Mary Ann  ��� creek. This property was noted as having some of the richest gold bearing  quartz discovered on the Reservation.  With the option in his pocket he returned to Montreal and promoted the Col-  vlllo Reservation Syndicate, Limited.  On his second trip to the Reservation  he caused to be staked out in a solid  block 65 claims, a mile anda half south  of the international boundary line, at  the head of Baker creek. On this land  ho proposed to establish his townsite���  Molson. The scheme required funds to  carry it out successfully. The Montreal  end did not view the idea in the same  ~~light~as"this-huPtlinc-promoter-and--"r&--  fused to dig up. The enterprise had  about fallen through and Meehem was  being hard pressed by sundry creditors,*  when a telegram reached him saying he  was wanted in Denver. To Denver he  went. There he learned that some mining property thought, valueless a few  vears before when he left Colorado was  "'badly wanted by Stratton. For his  share he received $125,000 cash. After  settling old scores, he returned to Molson  with $40,000 cash. It cost him $9500 to  make the trip from Denrw to s-iolson.  He hired a special Pullman car to  Spokane, and was accompanied by a lawyer, a doctor, a hotclman and another  friend. These men formed the nucleus  of the embryonnic city of Molson. Thc  $40,000 lasted him from May to September. In less than five months Molson  was having a boom���but he never offered to sell a lot. He built the most costly  hotel on the Reservation. Ho next put  np and equipped a drug store, a law office and a private office. Other enterprises included three saloon buildings,  a second hotol, two restaurants, and a  printing offlee. He had plans prepared  and the ditch dug for a waterworks system. For the pleasure of the rapidly  growing community he built a half mile  raco track which was opened on September 3rd, and for four days Molson was  a typical wild and woolly western camp.  Two days later Meehem declared himself as being "all up." With a few hundred dollars in his pocket he vanished.  He realized that the Reservation, when  thrown open, would not have an Okala-  homa boom and decided fco try new  ���fields :  For a! time his whereabouts baffled  all attempts of his friends and creditors  to locate him. The creditors placed th-3  hotel in the hands of a receiver. Without Mechem's cash to carry on business  thc saloons and stores soon closed down.  Within a few weeks Molson was numbered with the "has beens." For a year  Mechem's lawyers have'fought off every  attempt of his creditors to sell the place.  They tried to make him a bankrupt.  This failed, for Mechem's total indebtedness did not exceed $3000 and the  county assessor assessed his holdings  at $8000.  Now Meehem, mining operator and  townsite boomer, is once again in the  swim. He offers to settle up his liabilities here in full.  When he disappeared he went straight  to Beaumont, Texas. He got in on the  ground -floor and secured much land ad-  B. E. Walker,  General Manager  London Office, 60 Lombard Street, H. O.

The papers state he has been  sensationally successful in oil manipulations and that his profits are placed at  a minimum of $250,000. To him is due  the credit for originating tho plan  whereby Beaumont oils are to be sent  to New York to take the place of the  black diamond in manufacturing establishments. This project embraces the  construction of a pipe line from the  Meehem properties on Spindle Top,  Beaumont, to Port Arthur, on the coast,  and is already well advanced. Thc first  oil loaded barge is lo reach New York  early next year. Such in brief is the history of the founder of this place.  CEQLQGY~AND TOPOCRAPHY  Of Boundary District.  GREENWOOD, November 16.���[Sp3C-  ial correspondence of The Tribune.]���  Recently The Tribune's correspondent  at Greenwood. had an interesting talk  with Mr. R. W. Brock, of the Canadian  geological survey, who had just completed his fifth season's field work in  British- Columbia, and who was upon  the eve of returning to Ottawa to thero  enter upon the task ,of working up the  material, comprising much and varied  information relative to the topography,  seology, mineralogy, etc., of the Boui-  dary district collected by him during  last summer and fall.  The geological map of,West Kootenay, in the preparation of which Messrs.  Brock, W. W. Leechr James McBvjy,  and others have been engaged for several years, is now in the engraver's  hands and should soon be ready for  the public. The Shuswap sheet, embracing the country immediately north  of West Kootenay (in connection with  vhich the late Dr. G. M. Dawson, C. M.  G., L. L. D., F. R. S., for some time previous to his lamented death deputy  head aud" director of the Canadian geological survey, did the greater part of  the work), has already been published,  as, too, has the Kamloops sheet, covering the country -westward from that  included in tlie Shuswap. sheet. The  sheets arc similar in size, ond general  characteristics, the geological survey,  in its efforts to systematize its work  and keep it as uniform as possible having adopted a scale of four miles to the  irch, each sheet prepared on this system taking in a country 72 miles  square. The maps are geographically  colored and contoured and give geographical and topographical data and  other explanatory matter. It is usual  to issue with the general geological map  a topographical map with special indications of the occurrence of economic  mineral and glacial strata. The maps  arc accompanied by a comprehenjive  -ej*planatory"-report��� enibracing-the���fol-*^  lowing infoimation: physical geography, general geology, descriptive geology, glaciation and surface deposits,  minerals of economic value, perograph-  ical character of the rocks withinotas  of microscopic examinations, and humorous miscellaneous observations.  The West Kootenay map takes in the  country from the west shore of Kootenay lake, on the east, to the north  fork of Kettle river, which is practically the western boundary of this sheet,  Northward it goes nearly to the head  of Kootenay, 'Slocan and. Whatshan  lakes, and the headwaters of the main  Kettle river. Its southern limit is, of  course, the ��� international boundary  line. Those interested in Mr. Brock's  observations on the portions of West  Kootenay examined last year may find  them in the summary report of the geological survey department for the yeai  1900, issued last January, and which  can he obtained from the department at  10 cents a copy. Additional information  will doubtless be published with the  map shortly to be isseud.  This year Mr. Brock's work was largely restricted to the country lying between the north fork of Kettle river  and Boundary creek. His preliminary  report on this section, which will be  included in the summary report to be  published early next year, will be welcomed by many who are anxious to  learn the conclusions to date of so.  competent an authority. The district  oeing important from a mining standpoint, Mr. Brock wjjl probably go into  considerable dejafl. The Boundary  country, geologically, in many respects  resembles the Kootenay district. Like  lhat section it presents a variety of interesting features, there being con*3id-  orablo diversity in the rocks. The  mountains in the Boui dary are less  rugged than those in the Kootenay���  not nearly so high and more rounded,  consequently the country is more easily traversed. The geological exposures,  however, are not so good, the rocks often being, at critical pon/ls. covered  with wash. Owing largely to the free  growth of timber and brush and there  beiug much disturbed matter overlying  the settled formations, the district as  a whole is a different and expensive one  to thoroughly prospect. Mr. Brock's  observations may be expected to note  this  characteristic],  and  to  include a  OE1    C-AZXX^JD-A.  Capital (paid up)  Rest  $2,600,000  $1,860,000  HKAD  OFFICE. TORONTO, ONTARIO.

It is to be hoped that the geological  survey department will; as soon as,practicable, issue a map of the Boundary  district similar . to that it published  some time ago of the Rossland district.  That map was on a scale of one mile  to the inch, wac colored to indicate the  disti ibution of the rocks, had contour  lines and showsd the most prominent  mountain peaks, streams, railways,  reads, trails, towns, wic. The department is alore in possession of the requisite data for such a map, and ia  view-of the increasing importance of  the Boui dary as an ore-producing dis-:  ��� trict it is especially desirable that information collected by thoroughly competent and withal impartial officials;  shall be made available at the earliest  possible time.
