 ��  ij?*.  ,��'./  i *.���  ftv  m  ESTABLISHED  1892  FRIDAY MORNING,  DECEMBER  6,   1901  DAILY EDITION  TO BE TOTED 01  FOUR MONEY BY-LAWS BEFORE RATEPAYERS.  SELOUS ATTEMPTS TO KILL THE  ELEOTBIC LIGHT ONE, BUT  HAS NO SUPPORT.  The advancing of the four loan bylaws to the stage at which they will be  submitted to the ratepayers for their  approval or rejection was the chief bus-  ��� iness transacted at the "meeting of the  city council last evening. Another attempt was made by alderman Selous to  prevent the ratepayers from having-a  chance to vote upon tne by-law to authorize the installation of a power  plant upon Kootenay river. When the  motion for the third Reading was made  he moved in amendment that the by-law  be given a six months' hoist, which  would have killed it had it been carried.  There was not a single member of the  ,: council who shared in the same opposition to allowing the people to say  whether they wanted to own their own  lighting system or not and for this reason the amendment moved by alderman  Selous was not voted upon.  The by-law to vote $10,000 for high  school purposes was nrst taken up in  committee. It was decided to vary from  the former form of loan by-laws so that  the mayor will be restricted.to selling  the debentures authorized for less than  par, and upon the suggestion of alderman Selous it was decided" to levy  against improvements as well as land  for the purpose of providing interest  and sinking funds - on account   of   the  same.  Alderman Irving directed attention to  the manner in which the by-law had  been drawn. He said he had understood  that it was the idea of those supporting  the by-law in its present shape that the  surplus over present high school requirements could be used for other  school requirements," but from the manner in which the by-law had been drawn  he did not think' any such use could be  made of the money! If this was so he  ��� thought the council, would be justified in  reducing the. amount of the loan to the"  preseht requirements for high school  purposes. This the sponsors for thc bylaw refused to' consider and -the $10,000  amount stood.  - It was decided to have the voting  upon the by-law on Friday, the 20th  'instant1.' In the event of the by-law carrying this would admit of reconsideration on the 23rd, and the coming into  effect of the. by-law on the following  day.*  * ':  The by-laws authorizing the borrowing of-, $5000 for isolation hospital  expenditure, and for $5000 for the instal-'  lation of a fire" alarm- system were put  through the committee stage and treated in the same way, both as respect to  the percentum   of their   face   value at'  which they may be sold and the levying  of a rate upon improvements to cover  interest and sinking fund charges.  All four by-laws were then reported  -^complet.e=from-committee=with-amend-=  ments.    The third reading of the high  school,  the isolation  hospital and  the  flre alarm by-law was then moved, by  alderman Selous, seconded by alderman  Paterson, and  carried.  The third reading of the by-law authorizing the expenditure of $150,000 for  the electric Jight plant was moved by  alderman Irving, seconued by alderman  Gillett.  Alderman Selous then tried to prevent  the ratepayers from having a chance  to say whether they-wanted an electric  light plant of their own or not by moving that the by-law be considered six  months hence. He then undertook to  give his reasons. One was that the cost  of the work as estimated by the city  engineer was $150,000, which was the  amount authorized by the proposed bylaw. Another objection which he took  was that the engineer's estimate did not  provide emergency plant in case the one  to be built broke down. Another objection which he took was that the estimate of the cost was based on the most  advantageous site on the river, which  the city was endeavoring to secure. He  thought facts and figures were necessary  before the city undertook any such  work, and he was opposed to doing anything until the site in dispute was secured. He was also opposed to submitting any by-law" to the ratepayers  which he was not prepared to vote for.  Another reason why he was opposed to  the by-law was that the figures which  the city engineer had prepared on a few  days' notfee had not been checked over  by some competent expert. For these  and other reasons he moved that the  by-law he read a third time six months  hence.  Alderman Irving remarked that from  the objections cited by alderman Selous  it appeared to him that he was not prepared to take any engineer's estimate  of the cost of the work. The estimate  as submitted by the city engineer was  for the installation .tu' the plant on  Kootenay river as well as the necessary  extensions to the city's plant in the  city. The total estimated cost of the  same was returned at $150,000, but this  figure, it should be borne in mind, provided an item of over $11,000 for emergencies, or approximately ten per cent  upon the entire estimated cost.  Alderman Gillett supported the bylaw. He said he did not think there  jwas  get tho site at present iu dispute with  uie JJoiiiiiiigton Falls Power Company.  Alderman Selous cited another objection, which was that tne borrowing of  the money would ' double the taxation  6of the city, but to this alderman Gillett  replied that the city's revenue from the  plant would make an ample set off.  Mayor Fletcher then took a hand in  the discussion and put a number of  questions to the city engineer as to the  manner in which he had arrived at the  cost of the work, but he did not succeed in weaking the engineer's position. After this sort of thing had gone  on for some time alderman Gillett made  a protest. He reminded the council  that the city engineer had b.een urged  to get his estimate ready for the meeting and after he had gone to the trouble  or preparing it it looked to him as if  the council was not prepared to consider  the estimate that haa been asked for.  This softened down the comments upon  thei city engineer's estimate and after  some .further discussion as to what the  probable power requirements of the city  would be the question was put. No one  offering to second alderman Selous'  amendment for the six months' hoist  the vote came upon the motion, for the  third reading of the by-law, which was  carried, alderman Selous being the only  member voting nay.  The formal motion that the voting for  the east ward take place in the police  station and for the West ward in the  oflice of Ward Brothers was then put  and carried, J. K. Strachan being named as returning ofllcer.  r Upon the question of the advertising  of the -four by-laws alderman Selous  moved that they be advertised in'the  Miner, which was seconded by alderman  Paterson. In-amendment to this aider-  man Irving moved, seconded by alderman Madden, that they be advertised  iu The Tribune, but in moving his  amendmentalderman Irving said he was.  ready to compromise on the advertising. Alderman Selous said he was not  open���',.to compromise. He said he had  been vilified in The Tribune for the last  two months and for this reason he was  not in a humor to do any favor to The  Tribune. His motion advertising the  by-laws .in the Miner exclusively was  carried, the amendment securing but  the votes of the mover and seconder.  The estimate of the city engineer upon  the probable cost of installing the electric plant on Kootenay river and making necessary extensions: to the plant in  the city was as followsf  I beg herewith to submit my: estimate  of the cost of constructing an electric  light plant on the south side of t.he upper falls of Kootenay river; and the  transmission line to the city of Nelson.  I have not- had sufficient time to complete my report accompanying these estimates, but hope to do so for the next  meeting of the council. These estimates  are based on the construction of a fore-  boy, with two boys .and a power house  for two units, the installation at the  present, time.of one unit of 1000 horsepower and a single transmission line  to the city, the pole line however to be  erected with cross arms for the construction of a second line when required, the canal and foreboy and power  house to be constructed for a capacity  of 3000 horse-power, counting upon the  future installation of a second unit of  2000 horse-power, which, however, may  be made 1000 horse-power instead of  2000 horse-power if so desired. I have  not had the time to estimate the cost  of alterations and extensions to the  city's lighting system, the estimate  given for this purpose is from the superintendent of electric light.

Socialists' Efforts Again Fail '  THE HAGUE, December 5.���The attempt of the Socialists in the chamber  to induce the foreign office.to intervene  in South Africa failed again today the  "foreign minister Melvil Van Lyndon,  informing the interpellators that the  government. could not interfere in regard to the concentration camps, except  to relieve its own subjects and-could j  not take the initiative in any appeal to  the powers.  Hill Mat63 a Statement.  NEW YORK, December 5.���The Commercial Advertiser printed the following  statement today, made by James J. Hill,  president of. the Great" Northern railroad: "I have no intention ;of resigning the presidency of the railroad company. Furthermore, I am not going to  give up my home or residence in St.  Paul."    First Sealer to Sail.

DEALING WITH ANARCHISTS  BY DIRECT WIRES  NELSON IS KOW ON SAME  BASIS AS VANCOUVER;  OPERATORS WORK DIRECT WITH  DAWSON AND THE CABLE  OFFICE AT 0AN30.  Contingencies,   sundry  and superintendence  expenses  $120,250  11,250  Cost of extending wagon road  from Forty-nine creek to  power  site     $131,500  Senator Hoar's Idea  WASHINGTON; December 5.���Senator McComas (Maryland) made an extended and carefully prepared,speech.in  the senate today with anarchy for his  theme and was followed by some brief  remarks by Mr. Hoar, Massachusetts,  on the difficulties in the way of dealing  with anarchy, Mr. McComas' remarks  showed careful examination of the'legal  authorities. He maintained that congress had'full power under the constitution to enact a federal law punishing  with death any person killing,a presi-  den or assaulting the. president with- intent to kill, or aiding, inciting or procuring such an ' act. He favored rigid  provisions : in the immigration laws,'for  the deportation of alien anarchists. Much  ,of the speech was devoted to an excoriation of the dangerous doctrine of anarchy and the extent to which' these  doctrines had been propagated within  recent years.,  Senator Hoar's remarks we're interesting as coming from the venerable  chairman of the judicial committee  which will have have much to do with  the framing of any legislation on this  subject. He said the difficulty was that  assassins of kings and rulers always  gloried in their crimes and were in no  wise deterred by.the fear of punishment. For this reason he thought it  was almost useless to multiply punishments. The most effective remedy, he  suggested, would be to have the civilized  nations of the world agree upon some  desolate spot on the earth's surface to  which all anarchists who upheld assassination or the overthrow "of government'Should be transported. In such a  community the anarchist cpuld carry  out his theories of living without a  government and the world would be,  rid of his presence.  The senate passed a bill extending the  life of the industrial commission until  February   15th   next   to   complete   the  =wor-kdt=now=has4n=kand.  Few places on the continent of America of the size of Nelson have better  telegraph connections, weison not only  has competing lines, but it has facilities for transacting business direct with  all'points that our business men do business.' The Canadian Pacific . Railway Company's telegraph ofiice at Nelson is now operated on the same basis  as the office at Vancouver. As instances  of the direct connection Nelson has, on  Wednesday afternoon manager Smythe  of.the Nelson office sent a cablegram  direct to the cable ofiice at Canso, Cape  Breton Island.'��� Yesterday he had;direct  connection with Dawson, on the Yukon  river. There is a direct wire to Montreal  and as far east as Canso. Theie is a  direct wire over the Crow's Nest line  to Winnipeg. . Helena, Montana,. is  reached by a direct wire via the Crow's  Nest line and Swift Current. There is  also a direct wire to Spokane, Seattle,  Portland, and San Francisco. - There  are two wires to points in the Boundary  country, and, of. .course, a direct .wire to.  Vancouver. As is stated above, yesterday the Nelson office was working direct  with Dawson City in the Yukon Territory.  The amount, of business done at the  C. ,P. R. office in Nelson is .the largest  of any point between Winnipeg and*  Vancouver, and it requires a staff - of  eleven to handle it. * Nelson may - be  dull, but the volume of business handled  at its telegraph offices go to show to the  contrary.  GAME TO AN UNDERSTANDING  Kootenay railway as a competitive line.  Then a referendum to the voters should  be had to decide whether the railway  should be constructed as a government  work or as a competitive line. Of cour39  any offer from the C. P. R. could also  bo substituted. I would not object to that  and would loyally endeavor to carry  out the will of the majority."  The War,. Eagle law suit with the  James Cooper Company and other electric machinery people were not settled  on as favorable terms to the War Eagle  company as was first announced, so it  is said.  Nelson arrivals: W. J. Watehorn, F.  Barinson, H. , Hingston, J. Gladstone,  and E. A. Brown.  it are not announced. But, according to  report, the Rothschilds have a large  hand in the affair.  Settlers for Manitoba.  .WINNIPEG, December 5.���An exceptionally large party or settlers from  Iowa arrived today on the Great Northern train from the south. J. F. Tennant,  Manitoba immigration agent, was in  chargo of the. party, which'- consisted  of about sixty persons in a special car.  Some of thc party are settlers who have  already purchased land in the Canadian  west and others are prospectors who  represent parties in Iowa and will investigate for themselves before making  purchases. These gentlemen state that  there is a great interest manifested ih  Manitoba among the Iowa farmers and  a large influx of these desirable settlers  is confidently looked .for next spring.  REMEMBERED THEIR TRIP  Four Railways to Be Subsid'zed.-  MONTREAL, December 5.���Mr. Wells  of the British Columbia cabinet left  this aftefnoh for; Ottawa after successfully completing'. negotiations ���; respecting certain railway matters. It is understood that arrangements have been  reached by which the Ottawa and British Columbia, governments will jointly  assist in buildiag four lines of railway  in British Columbia, namely, the Canadian Northern, The Coast-to-Kootenay  line, the Kamloops-to-Atlin railway,  and the Vancouver- Island Extension  railway.

The case of Burn vs. Spearing was  thrown out by chief justice McColl at  yesterday's session of the supreme  court. This was originally an action on  a grub-stake agreement to secure a ono-  sixth interest in the Penobscot, Monte  Virde and Chilliwack Belle mineral  claims on Elliott creek in the Similkameen mining division. The owners of  the claims the interest in which was in  dispute allowed them to run, out so that  nothing remained but a question, of  costs in the action. His lordship refused  to make any order in the case, holding  that the case should have been disposed  of by judge Forin on the application to  have it dismissed for want of prosecution, as the subject matter of dispute  had passed out of existence and nothing remained but the costs. The ground  covered by the three claims has since  been staked and is now under bond for  several thousand dollars, upon which a  substantial payment has already been  made.

LONDON, December 5.���At the Guild  Hall banquet Mr. Chamberlain was accorded a tremendous reception when he  rose to respond to lord Rosebery's toast  to the colonies, but neither he nor lord  Rosebery- said anything of international  importance. Lord Salisbury alone referred to the topic of which everyone  was thinking, namely, England's unpopularity abroad. He said: "No doubt it  is true, just at this moment, that wo  have many enemies who are not very  reticent in expressing their opinion,  but on the othar hand, today's celebration, which is largely due to the action and co-operation of their royal  highnesses, has shown that we possess  in tho support of our distant kinsmen  an approval and sanction which "to us  is worth infinitely mure than all the  contempt and censure that we may receive from other nations." This remark  of the premier was greeted with prolonged cheering, after which" he continued, saying: "I cannot admit that  they are judges of our conduct, or that  we can modify our procedings. in deference to their opinion. What we look  to are the opinions of our kinsmen,  who belong to our own empire. We  have received from all other portions  of that empire an indication that we  have lost nothing in the opinion that  they held of the justice of our claim."  Another Trat scontinental Road-  MONTREAL, December 5.���It is now  stated on what appears to be good authority, that judge Foster, president of  the Oxford Mountain Railway Company,  contemplates the extension of his railway system to the Pacific coast. Evidently the judge intends to compete  with MacKenzie & Mann's Canadian  Northern. Thirty-four miles of his  transcontinental road are already completed and he hopes to obtain sufficient  aid from the various governments interested to enable him to build through  the yellow pass inside of three years.  Mine Orders Big Compressor.  GREENWOOD,   December   5.���-[Spec-  ail to The Tribune.]���The Palace hotel,  Anaconda, with nearly all its contents,  was destroyed  by*_ fire _early J*_his foro-  noon.The palace was erected in 1896 by  ex-mayor Thomas Hardy, who has  owned it ever since. Bell & Hooper have  been Hardy's tenants for 'some time  past. It is not known how the fire started, but it had good head way when discovered. There is no effective water system in Anaconda, so it was impossible  to check the flames. The tenants and  lodgers lost a good deal of personal property. The insurance is stated to be  about $2000 on the building and $1200  on the stock and furniture, A neighboring building, distant about 30 feet,  had a narrow escape, the heat badly  scorching the walls and it was only  asved by the efforts of volunteer helpers. A few weeks ago The Tribune published that the Palace then had a narrow escape from destruction by fire owing to a defective flue. It is not likely  it will be rebuilt.  Anthony J. McMillan, managing director of the Snowshoe Gold & Copp*ir  Mines, Limited, has placed an order  with R. P. Williams, agent at Greenwood for the Jenckes Machine Company  of Sheibrcoke, Quebec, for the first half  of a Rand-Corliss thirty-drill air compressor, to be a combined machine, so  as to be driven by either steam or electricity. When completed the compressor will bo similar to those used by the  Le Roi, Nickel* Plate and Center Star  mines at Rossland. The steam will be  furnished TTy two 80-horse power horizontal boilers, which" are also to be supplied. The contract calls for the delivery of the. compressor in about three  months.  Nelson arrivals: A. B. Gray, W. M.  Irving and C. E. Miller.  Handsome Gifts From Royal Party.  . MONTREAL, December 5.��� That  pleasant memories of their interesting  tour through Canada still linger with  the royal party was evidenced by the  arrival yesterday,, of two mysterious  looking boxes at the head offices of the  C. P. R. here. They were addressed to  W. R. Baker, assistant to the second  vice-president, who accompanied their  royal highnesses on the journey across  the continent to Victoria and return,  and to whose good offices was largely  due the successful accomplisment of a  7000 mile trip without an unpleasant incident of any kind whatever. In one of  the boxes, a heavy oak one, was a massive silver jardiniere on a handsome  ebony base, a 'magnificent specimen of  the silversmiths' art. It bore the royal  arms and the following inscription':  "To W. R. Baker, esq., from the duke  and duchess of Cornwall and York, in  remembrance of their journey across  Canada by the Canadian Pacific Railway, 1901." In the other box was a  large silver cigarette box sent by the  ladies and gentlemen-of the royal suite,  all of whose autographs, including that  of prince Alexander of Teck, were uniquely inscribed on the lid, whilst the  following pleasant gresting was engraved on the front: "To our friend  W. R. Baker, in remembrance of many  happy' days spent on the C. P. R. in  September and Octobsr, 1901."  With these .valued gifts were letters  expressing their royal highnesses' and  the suite's thorough appreciation of Mr.  Baker's unceasing attention and forethought, and their gratitude for his ef-  ficent services on the memorable occasion. These royal souvenirs are a recognition of Mr.- Baker's social qualities  and personal worth and a deserved tribute to his efficiency in his official capacity as representative of the great Canadian railroad over which the prince  and princess of Wales had,_it_is_pen=_  haps not too much to say, one bf the  most enjoyable experiences of their  lives.  Liberal Qeneral Surrenders.  COLON, December-5,���The following  message was delayed by the Colombian  censor: "General Alban, wearing his  own uniform and accompanied by a  bodyguard of soldiers, left Panama yesterday to receive the surrender of the  liberal general Domingo Diaz. The two  generals met at Gorgona station on the  railroad and returned to Empire station,  where the peace papers were signed,  General Diaz with about eighty, followers and accompanied by general Alban reached Panama about 6 o'clock  yesterday evening. General Alban conducted the liberal leader, who still wore  the liberal emblem,,.a red ribbon around  his hat, to a carriage and drove with  birn-'.to".'-*his family house in Panama.  All persons here unite, in agreeing that  geueral Alban is not only a brave, general, but.a true gentleman as well."  That part of the; conservative forces  under general AJban dispatched to Agua  Dulce have not yet returned. It is sur-'  mised that this expedition is in pursuit of the liberal- general Victorlana  Lorenzo, but there is absolutely no information as to whether these two  forces have become engaged. It is rumored in Panama that 200 liberals from  Tumaco have landed in the department  of Panama to reinforce the command of  general Belisato Porras. The conservative government is in no way disturbed  by this rumor.  Since yesterday all trains have been  running across the isthmus .without escorts of American marines. Both ends  of the isthmus are quiet.  The German training ship Stein has  failed fr.pm here for Kingston, Jam-  aico.  SAFELYTOWEDIN  SHIP NELSON DID NOT GO  TO THE BOTTOM.

The  paper adds: "The contract and concessions were obtained through some of  the American delegates who in typically Yankee fashion managed to combine private and official business."

NEW YORK, December 5.���The cha- ?i  otic  position   was   never  more  notice- liable than at the meeting of the Nation- S  al   Liberal  Federation  at  Derby,   says .   >'~.  the-London���correspo-naent~of-tfie_TrF. :  bune.   A   resolution   calling   upon   the '���"  government to announce the terms on ' "'���  which they are prepared to conclude  peace in South Africa was not passed  without a noisy scene occasioned by difference of opinion in regard to the attitude taken by lord Milner. E. Mott  Liberal member for Oldham, objected 7  to the words declaring it essential, with  a view to the conclusion of -peace, that  a special commissioner should be dispatched to South Africa. Cheers and  groans greteed his statement that he  would accept no vote of censure on lord  Milner, and the chairman was compelled  to intervene to restore order. As a matter of fact, the differences between tho  various sections of the Liberal party  are not differences on mere matters of  detail nor are they the result of the  war. The dissolution of the party began in 18S5 and the war has hastened  Its progress, which was retarded for a  time by Mr. Gladstone's personal influence.

'*                           '   *  The Province of Vancouver laments  over the fact that being public spirited  does not pay. , The police force of Vancouver had become demoralized, and the  Province directed attention to the fact.  The result was that the chief of the department began action against the  Province for libel. Before the case was  heard on its merits, the chief migrated  to Dawson. The Province got judgment  for costs, which is not a Dankable asset,  and as lawyers do not take a standoff,  it had to pay costs to the tune of $800.  The Province is not alone in such matters. Last spring the upera house at  Nelson was condemned as a flre trap  by the city authorities, and was closed  tip until the alterations ordered by  the city engineer were made. The Tribune backed up the city authorities, and  for so doing it has been boycotted by  the manager of the opera. ' house ever  since. The Tribune on that particular  question,' was merely public spirited; and  tor being public spirited it lost a certain amount of business. Another case  may be cited: In 1S99, the flre limits  by-law was allowed to be broken by one  firm, and another firm thought they had  an equalright to do sp. The result was  that the city was out over $2000 in law  costs. For saying that by-laws should  not be broken merely to suit influential  individuals and firms, The Tribune incurred the ill-will of one firm that has  resulted in_.its losing patronage that  amounted to several hundred dollars.  Yet people clamor for independent and  public-spirited newspapers, but they  never take into consideration that a  newspaper always gets the worst of it  ���when it makes a stand in the public interest a3 against individuals and oor-  ���porations.   Tbe Tribune made a stood  against allowing the West Kootenay  Power &. Light Company to gain an; entrance into Nelson, and for backing up  its opinions fearlessly it has not only  lost patronage, but its editors have been  threatened with violence at the hands  of men who favored the power company. Nowadays, a newspaper to be  independent and public-spirited must  not only be able to stand financial  losses, but its editors must be prepared  to protect 'themselves from' physicial  violence.  Robert Ward, who is a director in the  Hall Mining & Smelting.Company, and  who,manages a general brokerage and  insurance business in Victoria and Vancouver, with an-office in London, England, was in Toronto recently, on his  way home to England. "He" was interviewed by the Globe,'and is "reported as  saying: "The political situation in  " British Columbia is deplorable. The  "whole community isan: a-state of un-  " rest, business is affected, _and in com-  " mercial circles there is a marked lack  " of confidence. Unless order and sta-  " bility are restored, the province must  " go backward, as " development and  " progress are almost impossible under  " present conditions." The Globe commenting on the above says: "Mr.  " Ward's company represents many  " marine     fire, and     life     insur-  " ance companies, and does' a large  " shipping business, hence on his  " visits of inspection to the province" he  " comes in contact with varied classes  " of the commercial community, and "he  " says their views as to the consequences  " of the political situation were never  " more pessimistic. The salmon pack  "on the Pacific Coast'this season is, he  "-says, perhaps the largest in the his-  " tory of the industry.. The .result- has  "been a rush on the English, market,  " which has created a little alarm over  " there, and consequently prices are only  " nominal. This situation, he thinks,  "will soon readjust itself, amL prices  " will improve." Mr. Ward was for a  long time a resident of Victoria, and  once ran for mayor of that city. -The  men in office~~in"the_"parlianTehT'build"---  ings in Victoria today are the same  crowd as filled the same offices when  Mr. Ward was a" resipueiit of Victoria,  and t.he chances are the majority of  them voted for Mr. Ward for mayor.  But The Tribune will not discuss that  phase of the question. The question  might bo asked Mr. Ward, what has the  political situation in this province got  to do with the price of salmon in London? pr, for that; matter, with the price  of lead and-silver in the same market?  The salmon canners are said to have  lost money this year, yet they had an  abundance of cheap Japanese labor,1 Imported for their especial benefit. No  provincial legislation In any way affected their interests. The government  protected their illegally imported and  naturalized Japs with force. Is it be-,  cause of this protection that Mr. Ward  bases his complaint of lack of order?  In this mining district where Mr.  Ward represents capital, the one  company in which he is a director  never had its affairs in as good shape  as they are at present, yet it did not  make money last-year. Why? Because  the price of the silver produced at its  mine and 'the prices of the silver and  lead treated at its smelter were systematically and persistently hammered  down on the London market. What had  legislation in British Columbia to do  with the fall in prices of these two  metals in London? If men like Mr.  Ward would only talk sense for publication, however much nonsense they  may talk in their clubs, the country for  which they profess so keen an interest  would be better off.  The attention of W. A. Galliher, M.  P., is called to the fact that the postal  facilities on portions of the Crow's Nest  railway are not as they should be, more  especially tlie facilities given the two  important towns of Creston and Kitchener,  These two towns have an eastern  postal g&rvlce, but no -westevh service.  A business man at Kitchener or Creston  can get a letter sent west to Kaslo or  Nelson providede he takes it to the train  and mails It on the postal car. If he  mails it at the postoffice, the letter goes  east, and somewhere this side of Winnipeg it is pouched for its destination  and transferred to aU eastbound train.  Yet unimportant places like Sirdar and  Kuskonook have both an east and westbound service. It is strange the responsible heads of tne postofflce department in this province cannot arrange the postal facilities on a common-sense basis. It is also strange so  influential an organization, as the Nelson Board of Trade does not keep track  of such cases as the one referred to  above. But Mr. Galliher has an influence that boards of trade have not got,  and he should use it to straighten out  the self-evident irregularities on the  Crow's Nest railway.  Alderman Selous says The Tribune  has "viliflel" him for two months. If  we know the meaning of the word "vilify," The Tribune has degraded, debased,  disgraced, defamed, traduced, and cal-  uminated the alderman: for; the West  Ward. In what way has The Tribune  "degraded" Harold Selous? How could  The Tribune ."debase" or "disgrace"  him? The Tribune could have "defamed" and-"traduced" and . "calum-  inated"i5 the West ward alderman, as  his friends, have The Tribune and its  editors time and again, but it has done  neither. The Tribune has criticized  Harold Selous'; acts as alderman, and  did it fairly and- above board. It has  offered alderman Selous space in which  to refute these criticisms,- an offer that  the alderman has. not availed himself of.  If he believed himself right, and The  Tribune wrong, why did he not place  himself on record in print? If his views  were right and he' wanted the people to  understand them aright, why did he  not get his friend, the mayor, to call a  public meeting and talk from.the platform? Alderman Selous holds very pronounced opinions on public questions,  and. he did his utmost, to get the property- owners of Nelson.;to-endorse his  opinions; He was defeated, and now-he  says he was "vilified."- Is this a spec-"  imen of that much-boasted-of British  characteristic, "fair'"play?" The alderman from the West Ward, should take  defeat like a man,' and'not like an old  woman.  The Rossland Miner is as rabid as it  is vindictive and-unscrupulous and unprincipled, and no more vindictive and  unscrupulous and unprincipled newspaper, is today, published in Canada.  It shows its rabidne'ss in the following:  " A mine ' owned in New York by  " the Gould interests, operating in the  " Omineca, it is said, has been ordered  " closed down as a result of fear of  " labor agitation of a Socialist type. The  '��� repoit seems to refer to a well-known  " Omineca ~ proposition to which fav-  " orable'reports have as to future pros-  " pects heretofore boon forthcoming."  Omineca is one of the most out-of-the-  way districtsa in British Columbi.  There are probably not a hundred  white men in the district all told.- There  are no miners' unions and no Bernard  McDonald's in the district, and it is  a surej thing Socialist organizer Cameron has never been within 500 miles  of any of its camps. But it suits the  .purpose of the Miner to print such reports; If the'Miner knew the contempt  the people have for its opinions, its  editors would go and drown themselves in the Nickle Plate sump.  w  ���^^^^^^r^'rS^S^^^^^^^ S ��r-ir  00-00 <&'150 - eg'***'e��\<5*_'.<2��_  to  to  to  to  ON THUKSMY OF.

Keeping Up Appearances.  AMSTERDAM','. December- 5.���With  the view of allaying public indignation  and excitement semi-official Intimations  have been circulated to the effect that  queen Wilhelmina has forgiven her husband, prince Henry of the Netherlands',  the suggestion being that the .public  ought- to follow suit. As .cabled to the  Associated Press at the time, prince-  Henry returned to Hetlo December 2nd, >  since when the couple have been din-,  ing together and gradually resuming  normal relations. Yesterday they walked  together and afterwards drove in the  castle park. The relations between  prince Henry and the members of the  court are, however, very strained. The  formal cordiality has been succeeded  ���by an attitude of frigid politeness on  the part of the.prince consort and, apparently, the. gentlemen of -the court  are equally indisposed to gloss over recent occurrences;  Alderman Selous wanted to give the  by-law to raise money for the installation of the power plant on Kootenay  river the six months' hoist, in'other  ���words he was unwilling to give the property owners of Nelson a chance to ex-,  press their views on that question. Is  this alderman Selous' Idea of fair play?-  Is he afraid that the property owners  of kelson will act contrary to his wishes? What law, written, or unwritten,  vests him with despotic or kingly  power? Just such men as alderman  Selous caused William Lyon Mackenzie to raise a rebellion in ^Ontario in  1837, and the result of that rebellion is  much in evidence throughout Ontario.  History often repeats itself.  ��� Killed While Protecting Others  CHICAGO, December 5.���While guarding the lives of passengers in his trolley car; "conductor Micnael J. Dunwarth  of the south Halsted street line lost  his life at a grade crossing. The car,  northbound, was crowded with people  going to the stock show. As it approached the Grand Trunk track.... at.  Fortieth street, Dunworth ran ahead to.  see if the way was clear. A passenger  train was approaching from the east.  While he was still swinging the danger signal a switch engine approached  from the west and ground him to death  in sight of the horrified passengers on  the car.  Senatro Hoar of Massachusetts is a  level-headed old Yankee. He is not in  favor of passing drastic legislation, to  exterminate Anarchists. Instead, he  would deport all -Anarchists to an island set apart for their special benefit,  and on which they could freely carry  out their theories of government.  Andrew Carnegie has under consideration the gift of a large sum of money  for the establishment and endowment'  of a home for aged telegraphers.'

CHIEF GERONIMO IS DEPOSED  X/i-A-  And Vows Vengeance.  Geroniino is on the warpath. Not  against his pale-faced brothers is tho  fury of his anger directed. He wants no  man's scalp. It is a sort of family feud  ���a feud that embroils the entire tribe  of Apaches detained as prisoners of war  by the United States government ou a  reservation in Oklahoma. ,  For Geronlmo, known the world over  as chief .of the Apaches, is chief no  longer. A rival has dared to usurp him.  His squaw aud daughters have been  ignominiously hustled out of the Apache  "White House���that is to say, the chief's  tepee ��� and Geronlmo, leader of his  tribe for half a hundred years, has returned to his v people to lind that his  power over them has been' broken.  November, 1901, has been Geronimo's  ���unlucky month. For dozens of years his  name has been synonomous with terror  in the minds of tho white people. Today,  enraged and humiliated, the remnants  of his olflce taken from hhn and his  very presence ignored, he threatens  vengeance swift and terrible upon his  arch-enemy and all those who conspired  tc his undoing.  Geronimo in this mood is indeed a  foe to ilee from���unless one would do  desperate battle. That, is why there is  trouble brewing these days^on the land  of Oklahoma.  It all happened because Geronimo listened to tho flattering invitation tendered him by the officials of tlie Buffalo  exposition.  He spent the summer, there and was  a conspicuous figure of the great show.  His stay was thoroughly enjoyable, his  life at the exposition, grounds one of  continual comfort and pleasure. As to  the future he troubled himself not at aU.  To be sure, there had been a slight  unpleasantness before he -left home,  by ono Macenhorses, an Apache who  had jealously longed for many years  to step into Geronimo's -moccasins.  Macenhorses openly accused Geronimo  of catering to the wishes of certain  cattlemen who leased, land of the  Apaches." To this charge Geronimo, always proud, always dictatorial, always  contemptuous, haughtily disdained to reply. He considered it beneath his dignity to do so, and maintained a stiff-  necked silence.  Then came the overtures of the Buffalo exposition officials. The chief of the  Apaches packed all his paraphernalia  and departed in all his picturesque, barbaric glory for the haunts of civilization and its brilliant center, the Pan-  American at Buffalo. He did not think  seriously" enough of the attitude of  Macenhorses to provide himself, with  any means of defense. He flattered himself that his reputation and thc place  he believed that he occupied in the esteem of his tribe kept his position se-  _cure s ^ a =   But Geronimo has been given the surprise of his life in this year of 1901.  He is choking over the bitterest pill he  ever had to swallow. He is the maddest  Indian in America.  The assassination of Macenhorses Is'  the next event anticipated by those  who realize the mood that tho dethroned  chieftain is now chafing under, for  never yet has foe escaped Geronimo's  >yrath.  While ��� he was absent in the cast  Macenhorses and a "friend of his named  Naiche put their energies to good use  in undermining his stronghold. Thoy  actively canvassed against him and succeeded in winning over to their side  two-thirds of the tribe, which numbers  only 250. An election was held a fortnight ago and Geronimo was defeated.  His lordly raiment was then handed  over to the scheming and wily Macenhorses, who was formally proclaimed  chief.  This was the cheerful condition of  Apache politics when the unsuspecting Geronimo, his sport ended, left the  haunts bf the pale-faces, whose overtures had indirectly wrought .his ruin,  and hastened home.  He immediately challenged chief  Macenhorses to fight a duel. The new  ruler retaliated by having Geronimo  arrested and fining him ten ponies.  The band of Apaches on the reservation surrounding Fort Sill, though * in  reality prisoners of war, are practically free, as they have had their liberty  for years and show no inclination to  escape, being very .well situated where  they are. They control their own land  to rent or use, and live in their own  preferred Apache way. Geronimo draws  $25 per month as scout.  Remarkable indeed are the changes  wrought by time. The subjugation of  Geronimo by Uncle Sam makes one of  the most interesting chapters in Indian  affairs in United Spates history. No  man with active and dangerous experience among the Apaches has written  so graphically upon we subject of an  Apache uprising in general and Geronimo in particular as captain John G,  Bourke, who had some daring encounters with the Chiricahuas while in pursuit of them in the spring of 1883, when  Jte viras captain of the Third Cavalry.  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  throe por cent.  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nolson Branch.  Here are some of the events related by  him:  "In 1871 the war department confided  to general Crook the task of whipping  into   submission  all  the   bands  of  the  Apache nation living in Arizona. How  thoroughly the duty -was accomplished  is now u matter of history. But at thc  last moment one band, the Chiracahaus,  was especially exempted from Crook's  jurisdiction. They were not attacked by  the troops and for years led a jack-in-  the-box sort of existence, now popping  into an agency and then popping out  again, finally going into the wilderness  of tho Sierra Madre. One day the agent  sent his chief of police to arrest a Chi  ricahua   charged   with   some   offense  deemed  worthy  of  punishment  in  the  guardhouse. The offender started to run  through the Indian camp and'the chief  of police fired at him, but missed his  aim   and   killed   a   lucicless' old  squaw  who happened in range. This wretched  marksmanship    was   resented,   by   the  Chiricahuas, who refused to accept tho  profuse apologies tendered for the accident. They caught the chief of police,  killed him, cut off his head and played  football with it;  and then, like a flock  of quail, the whole band, men, women  and   children���710   in   all���started   on  ���the dead run for the Mexican boundary,  1&0 miles to the south.  ���*��� "Hotly  pursued' by   the   troops   they  fought their way across southern Arizona    and    New   Mexico,    their    route  marked by blood and devastation. The  valleys of the* Santa Cruz and San Pedro'witnessed a repetition of the once  familiar scenes of farmers tilling their  fields with rifles and shotguns strapped  to the plow handle. While engaged in  fighting off the American forces, which  pressed  too closely  on their rear,  the  Apaches were attacked in front by the  Mexican  column  under colonel  Garcia,-  who in a savagely contested fight killed  eighty-five and captured thirty.  "Meantime general Crook had been reassigned by the president- to the command of the department'' of Arizona,  which he had left ten years previously  in a condition of peace and prosperity,  with the Apaches hard at work upon the  reservation, striving to gain a living by  cultivating the soil. Incompetency and  rascality in the interval, had done their  worst, and when he returned not only  were the Chiricahuas on.the warpath,  but all of the other bands were hostile  "By stealing fresh horses from every  ranch the Chiricahaus were successful  in : traversing from 75 to 100 miles a  day, killing and destroying all in theii  path, the culminating point in theii  career being the butchery of judge McComas and wife, prominent and refined  people of Silver City, New Mexico, and  the abduction of their bright boy,  Charlie, whom the Indians carried  back with them on their retreat through  New -Mexico, and who was never afterward heard of.  "To attempt to catch such a band by  direct pursuit would be about as hopeless a piece of business.as catching so  many fleas. Crook's plans soon began  to outline themselves. By the middle of  May the enemy was close in our front.  The scouts in advance had picked up a  TTumber of "ponies, mules and cattleTlAC  noon on the 15th an Apache runner  from over the mountains brought general Crook a note stating that the advance guard had run across the Chiricahuas in a canyon, two were fired at  by the scouts and thc camp was on the  move. Shortly after dark Crawford and  his command came into camp. They had  'jumped' Bonito's and Chato's rancher-  ias, killing nine'and capturing flva  without loss to our side. One of the captives was Bonito's daughter, who said  that Geronimo and Chato would nevci  give in, but the othor big men of the  tribe, I.oco and Chihuahua, would be  willing to live peaceably on tho reservation  if justly  treated.  "Three days after Chihuahua, a fin.,  looking man, whose countenance betokened great decision and courage-  came into camp. This chief expressed  his desire for peace and said he was  tired of fighting. Geronimo was absent,  fighting with thc Mexicans, but he  (Chihuahua) had sent out runners to  gather up his band and surrender. That  night a band of thirty-six warriors, led  by Geronimo, who had just returned  from a bloody foray, came into camp.  They were certainly as fine looking lot  of pirates as ever cut a throat, ln muscular development, lung and heart power, they were, without exception, the  finest lot of beings I had ever looked  upon. The greatest terror prevailed at  that time at the mere mention of Geronimo in Mexico, the peasantry believing him to be the devil, sent to punish  them for their sins. Geronimo had killed  the Mexican soldiers with rocks, telling  them he had no ammunition to waste  on  the  Mexicans.  "General Crook told Geronimo that  he had waged such a bloody war upon  our people and the Mexicans that he  could not let him go back; a howl  would be raised against any man who  would grant terms to an outlaw for  whose head  two nations clamored.  " 'I am not taking your arms from  you,' said the general, 'because I am not  afraid of you with them. You have your  choice. Fight it out, or go to farming  and make a living." Geronimo surrendered. All the bands were finally gathered in and marched to the i>an Carlos  agency. i  z&sz  -r��~  ���S3S  IMPERIAL BANK  OE1    O-A-HST-A-ZD-A.    ,  Capital (paid up)  Rest  $2,500,000  $1,850,000  HKAD  OFFICE.

"How the poor live" is a subject  wheih invariably crops up as the winter days come upon us, when climatic  conditions drive them for shelter to  any hole or cover where cheap comfort  may be obtained. In London the Ad-  elphia Arches were famed for a most  wonderful collection of human waifs  and strays, and Paris, it appears, has  something analogous at Bagonlet, where  there is a marvelous shelter called by a  French journalist "The Subterranean-  Palace of the Poor." It has beeen produced by extensive excavations under a  hill whose soil yields material for making plaster. Large fires are kept going  to burn this natural production and  produce the plaster. Around these glowing furnaces congregate homeless men,  women and children, undisturbed, if  they behave, by the Paris police. For  years- the undermining of this hill of  cozy comfort has been going on and the  pillars have been kept standing at regular intervals to prevent the top from  falling in, which in the glowing firelight  resembles to some extent the fairy halls  of the Arabian Nights. The scene is  weird in the extreme as the firelight  plays upon groups of ragged wretches,  who bask in the generous warmth until  another winter morning dawns and the  excavation work ' recommences, when  they must go out in the chilly air and  scramble for any stray crumbs which  may fall from the rich man's table in  wealthy Paris.  ���    mmrmij0000ii0i0n00siartn�� tt\-j_m-j__,9Hiiti!\'ini"r7:i  *te4&ii_'_,m_S_^rtttiat<n?ie��>.*. -"���v"**^''  00*0%i^tfr^^Sr^Sf^i^B^^&^S-^S^^^^^^^K^"^Srife ^2i^Si^K^S^?*?^ g^>*gfc<4p^,g^^^fcy^****fc��'<B����,^fc>'^****fc�� ^^^���0^^i^^0^__t^^i0___a__iSL_is__Z'^.  m     '           ' ���^���www^-^  ......  r.l.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  DO NOT WAIT UNTIL IT IS TIME TO OUT THE XMAS TREE BEFOEE TOU ORDER TOUR  HOLIDAY GOODS AT JACOB DOVER'S, " THE JEWELER."  Curious Freak of Insane Persons  A Belgian physician, speaking of simulation by the insane, says that in cases  of insanity where the intellectual faculties are not too much disordered the  insane may simulate another form of  insanity than their own. The forms of  insanity, most often simulated are, in  order of frequency, imbecility, dementia  and mania. The other forms are not so  frequently simulated. A lunatic generally simulates insanity to escape 'punishment, and an expert physician should  not therefore in such cases he satisfied  with a diagnosis of simulation. Such  diagnosis does not exclude real,insanity,"  ahd the physician should therefore endeavor to ascertain whether or< not the  simulator is' himself a\ lunatic. With  'care, patience and a long-continued observation it is possible to'make a complete and correct diagnosis, and this is  the more important/as in these cases  the serious question of responsibility  arises.  Facts Ahout Presidents.  v Two presidents of the United States  were elected by the uhig party during  the 25 years of its existence as an  organization. These were William  Henry Harrison and Zachary Taylor.  Both died in office. The Republican  party which succeeded the Whig party,  has elected in forty-one years six presidents���Lincoln, Grant, -Hayes, Garfield, Harrison and McKinley. Three  of these���Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley���were assassinated. This is a  startling and tragic record. The Democratic partyhas been in existence JLOO  years. During half that period It has  been in power in the nation. It elected  nine presidents of the United States,  Messrs. Jefferson, Madison, Monroe,  Jackson, Van Buren, Polk, Pierce, Buchanan and Cleveland. Five of these,  namely, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe,  Jackson and Cleveland, served two  terms each. Of thc entire nine Democratic presidents elected in .110 years  not one died in office. It is worthy to  note also that the only ex-president living is a Democrat.  Cost'iest of All Monuments.  Mrs. Leland Stanford is determined  that the university at Palo Alto, California, founded in memory of her son,  shall be one of the greatest educational  institutions in thc world. The magnifi-  cient Taj Mahal, that wonderful memorial tomb at Agra, in India, cost $16,-  000,000, but, this is less than the endowment of the Stanford university. The  one monument is but a masterpiece of  beauty, the other is a source of education and inspiration of higher achievements for the countless thousands of  years to come. Mrs. Stanford has given  her entire time and attention to her son  and to her husband, who bequeathed to  her this trust of affection.  to  Recognizing the demand for "A Better Class of  Goods," we  have  decided to offer only such goods thafc we know are  first qual.Uv  nnd  latest designs.

Wholesale Shooting in Alabama.  MONTGOMERY, Alabama, December  5.���A special to the Journal from Opp,  Alabama, says: "In attempting to arrest  some boisterous negroes here last night  county, treasurer J. W. Dorsew. was  killed, Fayette Marshall seriously  wounded, John Fitzsimmons shot in the  leg and two unknown negroes killed  A number of negro tramps had been  running about the town all day and  last night in front of the store owned  by Mr. Dorsey, they became boisterous  'and made many threats and then left  town in a.body. Fearing trouble during the. night the city marshal, with  several deputies, among them Mr. Marshall, followed the negroes, finding them  near a turpentine camp. When ordered  to surrender by the marshal the negroes  opened fire. The posse returned the fire  and the shooting was general for a few  minutes. The negroes then escaped, hut  the posse is after them. It is not known  how many negroes were engaged in the  shooting.        .,  HOTEL  oo^F-A-isry  OFFICErfBAKER STREET WEST, NELSOfJ, B. C.

One  was issued to Joseph' Gillett and Sarah  Pike, and the other to E. Gallagher and  Ella Opdahl.  ' D. C. Johnson of the Everett smelter,  and D. W. Moore of the Trail smelter  are in the city. It is understood' that  their visit is in connection with the  mine owners' meeting.  The residents of the Fairview addition have been stirring .the government  agent up with a view to securing neces-r  sary improvements. So far they have  not succeeded, as there is said to be no  money available for the desired expenditure and the urgency of the same is  not admitted.-  The Canadian Pacific offieials. Included  G. M.

Regan, superintendent of the  Last Chance mine at Sandon, is in  Nelson. The long tunnel on the Last  Chance has not yet reached the vein,  but this may happen any day. Little  work was done on the vein that is expected to to be struck, so its pitch is  merely conjecture.  nmiihrinn^tii'MTroara^  *r��i-��, <iriiM-��iii*ri���*���*��� ���-^������--���^'  to  to  to  5*3* !��i^ ��**��':��. ���  .00.f0.00  .to  to  ESTABLISHED 1832  Houston Block  Nelson, B.C.

The long tunnel  is now in something over 2000 feet and  it is thought that the ledge may be  caught at any day though everything  will depend upon how the ledge  straightens up. If the market for silver  improves with the opening of the new  year the force of men at the Last Chance  will bo increased to 100, but at present  nothing but development work Is in  hand arid only sufficient ore is shipped  to pay operating expenses.  D. Bethune, who has been engaged at  the Arlington mine in the Erie district,  is in Nelson on a short vacation. There  is now a force of 80 men employed at  -the Arlington, and if the roads were In  : shape the property could make a record  shipment, there being a considerable  tonnage of high grade ore stored at the  mine in addition to that, which is being  taken out daily. All reports agree that  the strike which occurred in the lowest  level of the Arlington several weeks  ago has steadily Increased in point of  importance and the . appearance of: the  mine is much better than at any former  period in its development, there being  several feet of high grade ore showing.  H. B. Macdonell, general freight agent  for the Canadian Pacific, reached home  yesterday via Winnipeg, from the conference which was held in St Paul last  week between the smelting and transportation interests. He says the general  welfare of the mining districts was  talked over but he had nothing to say  as to what was accomplished, although  some announcement may be made In  the course of a few days. There was  quite a gathering of Canadian Pacific  officiate in St. Paul, as well as a nura-  Messrs. Elliot & Lennie have received  the full text of the decision of the full  court upon the appeal in the case of  Robert A. Kerr vs.' the Odd Fellows  Building Investment Company, which  does not bear out the reports previously published with respect to the same.  This was originally an action over extras on the building of the Odd Fellows block in this city, which was tried  by Mr. Justice Martin, From this judgment, S. S. Taylor for the plaintiff, appealed, but the full court sustained the  judgment of the trial judge and dismissed the appeal with costs. In the  judgment of the full court the defendant company Is directed to forthwith  tax their costs of and incidental to the  appeal and of the court below as between solicitor'and client and to deduct  the amount found due upon the said  taxation from* the monies now held by  the defendants under the terms of a  letter written to thc plaintiff prior to  service of notice of appeal.  M. Gintzbiirger of the Monitor mine,,  who is interested in tue Kaslo smelter'  scheme;' says he expects the expert of  the Glasgow company to arrive on the  scene within the -next week.' He says  the money to finance the venture has already been found and all. that is necessary now is the favorable report bf the  expert on the feasibility of the scheme.  Mr. Gintzburger recognizes that- the  present state of the lead mining industry  ,is not such as would ��a.spire over-confidence in smelter schemes, but there is  considerable preliminary "work to be  done and by the time this is completed  it is hoped that the conditions will have  very greatly improved. " The report has  got out that the Glasgow company contemplates a reduction in the price for  treating lead ores, -it being stated that  the actual cost .of treating the" ore at  Kaslo should not exceed $5 per ton. It  is not expected that any such rate will  be offered, but a reduction in the rate  is confidently expected if the smelter is  built.  From private sources .we learn that  "tlTe'^a'dvance-iSh%ets���have_arrivedi_of"a-  neat tnd interesting little brochure entitled, "The Kootenay Sucker, and How  to Catch Him," by, Mr. Flanagan of  Chicago, who writes under the nom de  plume of "Captain Williams." The  writer spent a couple oi months in the  Kootenay district during the pastrsum-  mer "bobbing" for suckers, and relates  in froceful and fascinating style his-suc-  cess. The Arrow and Kootenay lakes  and the Columbia and Kootenay rivers  were the scenes of his exploits, and in  an amusing style peculiarly his own the  author tells how some of the fish snapped at tho bait apparently blindfold,  while others more wary had to be caught  with a snare. The suckers caught were  of the genus homo variety, who during  the captain's visit all voted him a jolly  good fellow, but who now, since his departure, gnash their teeth in impotent  rage when thinking of their gullibility  and the suave duplicity of their erstwhile companion and friend. The edition, we understand, is limited to one  copy, the C. P. R., having secured the  copyright with the intention of applying the details to matters affecting in-  tersts of the company.  The editor and financier of the New  Denver Ledge has been out to Spokane.  This is what he says of the trip: "In  the days that are past it was a torture  to ride on the Spokane & Northern railroad from Nelson to Spokane. The cars  were filthy and' the bumps were so  numerous that a man with false teeth  was liable to lose them. Now all is  changed, probably owing to the energy  of H. A. Jackson. A Pullman car runs  from Nelson to Spokane, and the extra  tax to ride in it is only $1, or 35 cents  to Northport. It is a luxury that surprises the public. Meals are served a la  carte, and when the car crosses the line  the seal is taken off of the liquor department, doing away with the necessity of packing a bottle or catching  nolson at way stations. The train runs  smoothly on time, with Dodds or Sinclair on the punch. These old-time conductors make the journey a pleasant  episode to all patrons of the line. Such  excellent service as this road is now  giving will warm everyone not dead to  appreciation.

There were a large ii umber of mining  men in the city yesterday for. the purpose of attending the annual meeting  of their association, which was set for  last evening. The executive committee  of the association was in session for the  greater portion of yesterday afternoon  and had the work well in hand for the  meeting in the.evening. The business  session lasted until late in the night  and an official statement of the chief  business to claim the attention of [the  members was not obtainable. It was  thought that in view of the recent conference of British Columbia smelting  and transportation interests in St. Paul  that something definite in the way of  an announcement of what, might be expected for the ensuing year might have  been received, but those who attended  the conference and had returned to the  city were not inclined to talk until they  were in receipt of further information.  The general opinion among the lead  producers is that the freight and treatment rates upon their product is excessive and they all appear to be agreed  that some reduction under this head is  to be expected this coming year. This  is borne out by the circumstance that  very little of the Slocan ore carrying  over 40 per cent lead is being shipped.  In most of the properties in which this  grade of ore is produced it is being  sacked and stored and the shipments  restricted to the ore carrying lesser percentages of lead, upon which more favorable freight and treatment rates are  quoted. . The general condition of the  mining industry was reviewed, as well  as the projected refinery scheme, but the  absence of definite information forced  the discussion along general lines..  Among the mining men present at  last evening's meeting were J. Roderick  Robertson, George W. Hughes of the  Alamo, O. V. White of the Slocan Star,  M. Gintzburger of the Monitor mine, L.  Pratt and John Regan of the Last  Chance mine, Frank Robbins of the  North Star, C. Dundee of Rossland,  John L. Retallack of the Washington  niTne, A. Alexander of Kaslo, J. A.  Whittler of the Goodenough mine, Edmund B. Kirby of the War Eagle properties, captain Duncan of the Duncan'  United mines, Alfred Garde of the  Payne, and W. H. bandiford of the  Bosun mine.
