 c-n-CT��wn^^��.^^��enm��gg���?ajgre��gm>'g^^  *.r���m.,���.���m.,-.  f  ESTABLISHED  1892  TUESDAY  M0RN1KG,  DECEMBER  10   1901  WEEKLY EDITION  I,*    y  WANTS DAMAGES  SMALLPOX   PATIENT   DEMANDS COMPENSATION.  HE HAS EVIDENTLY PUT EVERYTHING WITH HIS ACCOUNT  AT FULL VALUE.  The session 'of the city council  ��� last evening would have been a  very uninteresting one were it not  for the intesest evoked by the reading of James Hubbard's claim for  damagas against the city in connection with the burning of his shacks  when he and his little daughter  were taken down with the smallpox and removed to the city pest  house. All told Mr. Hubbard figured out that the. city was indebted to him to the extent of $390.  The detailed statement of claim  showed that-Hubbard valued the  shacks destroyed at $190, and the  rest of his bill of costs was made  made up of provisions, stores and  clothing destroyed with the shack.  In presenting the claim to the  council for its consideration mayor  Fletcher also read the report of  health officer LaBau upon it. This  showed that in the opinion of the  health officer the value of the Hubbard shack, as well as the value of  the contents underwent a decided  appreciation in value after the torch  had been applied to them. Dr.  LaBau reported that two shaSks  had been burned, although three  figured in Hubbord's bill, and as to  the value of the shacks destroyed  he did not hazard an estinlate. So  far as the effects in the shacks  were concerned he reported that  everything of value was removed  to the pest house. He further  stated that Hubbard at the time  informed city officer McGregor that  everything , of value had been  brought away. This statement of  Hubbard's was afterwards repeated  to himself, when in asking the  medical health officer to see what  he could do with the city in the  way of securing compensation for  the loss of his shacks Hubbard  mentioned $25 or $30 as the sum he  would be willing to accept in settlement.  The doctor's statement with  respect to the value of "the effects"  destroyed in the shacks was borne  out by officer McGregor whose  version of it was that no secondhand dealer would give anything  for them.  Mayor Fletcher in commenting  upon the ..-claim as filed said it had  evidently been prepared by a lawyer. With respect to the claim for  clothing it was admitted that the  patient's clothiug had been burned  but when he had been discharged  from the pest house he was given a  complete outfit of clothing.  City clerk Strachan explained  that the shacks for which Hubbard  was claiming were on the 0. P. R  right of way.  ��� The couucil decided to take no  action with respect to- the^ claim  and the matter was dropped.  Considerable discussion arose  over the question ofthe remuneration of E. B. McDermid as city  auditor. Mayor Fletcher explained  that owing to the virtual suspension of operations by the Duncan,  United Mines, with which the audr  itor was ' connected, the latter Was  considering the advisability ,of  accepting a position, in the United  States, but if the council would  make a reasonable allowance for  the services of the auditor he  would remain and take his chances  of securing other employment in  the city.  For the information of the couri-:  cil the city clerk explained that the  salary of the auditor for the year  previous had been $20 per month,  but in consideration of extra work  the council had made a vote of $200  or $250.  In answer to alderman Selous, as  to whether the auditor had named  a sum which he would expect, the  mayor stated that the salary had  been mentioned in conversation at  from $60 to $70 per month.  This was regarded as high by  several members of-the council and  alderman Selous, who had the  most to say upon the matter,  said that while it could not be  denied that the auditor had done a  great deal of work it "was evident  that he had confused the duties of  an accountant with- those of an  -auditor.  It was further pointed out that  any arrangement which the present  council might make would not  extend beyond the present year,  and in the end it was decided to  refer the question to the finance  committee, at whose meeting the  auditor will be present for the purpose of informing the council as to  the work he has been doing.  The. petition of A. Minty and  others, for a sidewalk on Park  street, from Silicia to Carbonate,  was referred to the public works  committee.  Three tenders for supplying fif\ y  head boards for the pauper graves  were received. The tender of  Thompson & Douglas boing the  lowest was accepted.  A communication was received  from superintendent Downie of the  C. P. R. in which he complained  that the electric light service' supplied to the company was hot equal  to that supplied in other portions  of the city. The motter was referred to the city electrician.  A communication was read from  ,the sisters of St. Joseph in-which^  they declined to pay the city'water  account.     It was  referred  to the  mayor to adjust.  EXPECT A $2 REDUCTION  In Treatment Charges.  John M. Harris of Sandon passed  through Nelson yesterday on his  way to~'Rossland, where it is said  a move will be made in the celebrated apex lode case which has developed between the owners of the  Slocan Star property and the owners of the Rabbit Paw mineral'  claim. In speaking of the mining  outlook" for Kootenay's lead pro-  ducers_Mr._Harris_expresse_d_him-  self as confident that smelting conditions would be made easier for  the lead miners with the commencement of the new year. While  it was true that the smelter men  had not committed themselves to  anything definite, it was also worthy of note that no hints had been  thrown ont of any increased treatment rate. In his opinion the  smelting interests realized that the  lead producers of Kootenay had  about reached the limit for profitable operations, and that in order  to secure tonnage for their own  operations they would be obliged  to make reductions in their treatment rate. The general opinion  was that a cut of $2 per ton would  be made in the treatment rate on  lead ores. This would be welcome  tothe owners of lead properties,  but it did not by any means represent their ideas of the concessions  they were entitled to, or would it,  in his opinion,-put the lead mines  in as good a position as they were  at the commencement of the present year, when the smelters not  only absorbed a reduction of a dollar a ton made by the railways in  their transport charges, but increased their charges as well as  their deduction from their lead contents from seven-tenths to one cent  per; pound,  Mr. Harris does not attach much  importance to the movement looking to the establishment of a smelter, and refinery for the treatment  of lead ores which should be owned  by the owners of the mines, for the  reason that the transportation  companies appeared to stand' in  with the trusts. This, he said, had  been illustrated in a number of  instances on the United States side  of tlie line, ono of which came under his  own observation. It was a case In which  thc owners ot a small lead property not  content with the treatment meted out to  Jt by the smeller trust made arrangements fer having their output treated In  a small smelter which was standing idle  and which the trust did not consider It  worth its while to take up. Everything  went ,on well with the preliminary arrangements until the railway company  was approached for the cars necessary for  tho moving of tho ore, but here the  scheme was killed bv the railway company's statement of its inability to furnish the necessary cars. He had' no reason to believe that any different experienco would result from attempts to establish an* independent smeltei in British  Columbia to be owned by the producers  of-the lead to be treated.  While .he. regarded as exorbitant the  charges made by thc local and oth^r  smelters outside of the trust for the treatment of lead "ores, the mine owners of  Kootenay had no redress as the smcltero  in the smelter trust would net take the  oro. at any lesser rate, although It was  more than double the rate paid by the  owners of leid properties in the United  States. One result,of the conditions imposed upon tho lead mining industry by  the smelting interest" was that there was  largo quantities of-If ad ores lying "on .the  dumps of properties in the Slocanr ore  which contained upwards of 40 por cent  lead with say 30 ounces silver which it  would not pay the properties to ship. This  icsultad in a restricted output and the  loral smelters thereby occasioned difficulty in securing sufficient tonnage for  thoir operations. Wore the rate so reduced so that it would be profitable to  ship this second-class ore he was of the  opinion that not only the rrino owners  but tho smellers as well would he the  gainers as they would not be subjected to  tho loss of blowing out from lime to time  even the small furnaces which they had  employed in treating lead ores but could  add to their smelting capacity wilh practically no Increase in cost upon the score  of management and maintenance.  DIRECT RAILWAY  CONNECTING MIDWAY AND  VERNON CAMPS.  F. AUGUSTUS HfclNZE OP BUTTE,  MONTANA, SAID TO BE BACKING THE' SCHEME.  Moi Store's Whereabouts Located.  SOFLA, December 9.���According to Information received from Salonika, Miss  Ellen Stone and Mme. - Tsilka, her companion, are 'concealed in the vicinity of  Kilo, about five miles south,, of Dubnitza.;  "in Bulgarian' territory. The hews was  brought by a Macedonian, who left there  December 1st and who furnished precise ���  information regarding tho hiding places  and the names of tho agonts supplying  food for the brigands and their captives.  Tt is understood the ' information is regarded as reliable enough to justify tho  foreign officials >-in Turkey dispatching  emissaries*-,, to treat with the bandits, and  that application has already been mado  by the Turkish government for the passage of tho emissaries across the Turkish frontier, which Is guarded by troops  stationed   at   every   hundred   yards. _  Want the Fet urns.  NEW YORK, December 9. ��� Liberal  newspapers aro appealing to Broderick to  publish the October figures of the mortality in the concentration camps of  South Africa, says the London correspondent of the Tribune. Thero. has never  heen such a delay in announcing the prc-  vious monthly   returns   and   It is   feared  that owing to the heavy rainfalls which  have been reported tho death rate among  the children cannot have decreased to any  appreciable extent.  Misleading Maxims.  Perhaps no maxims are so misleading to the judgment of those who implicitly believe them as those which  assert what Js .absolutely true actually  and very of tern false metaphorically.  For instance: "Where there's smoke  there's flre" and "Straws show which  way the wind blows." If by smoke wo  understand scandal and gossip, then  there is often a good deal of very nasty  smoke and no flre at all. Neither, metaphorically speaking, do straws show  which way the wind blows, for such aro  tho cross-currents of character that  you can seldom judge of its general  trend by a trivial action. A man may  save a penny and yet not be mean, or  throw.-away a pound without being  generous or even habitually extravagant.  Take, for instance, the common Yorkshire saying, "When in doubt do  nought." How very seldom the principle therein contained can be applied  with advantage. How many weak wills,  we should like to know, has this pestilential little proverb contributed to paralyze? "All things happen to those who  wait"���and so they ao wait, till the  only thing which is sure to happen to  every one does happen, and they die.  Cculd they but have realized that "he  who hesitates is lost" contains far more  truth than its opposite they might have  done something in life. Not that this  energetic assertion of an occasional  fact is by any means a. sure guide. Who  is not familiar with the man who never  hesitates before any decision and nearly  always laments his precipitation, usually aloud? Who has not got tired of  imploring such a one to make the best  of a bad job or of suppressing the obvious comment of "We tbld you so?"  All the same, believers in a motto which  spurs them into foolish action seems  to do better in the race of life than  those who rely upon one which  preaches nothing but caution. And  hasty people generally seem to arrive  at their goal, in however bad condition.  GREENWOOD,,December 9,���[Special  correspondence   to t The  Tribune. ���At  the last session of the provincial legislature among the/bills passed  toward  the close was "one granting a charter to  local men for the-Jpurpose of building  the Vernon and Midway railway. The  charter carried with it a bnus f $4000  per mile, for 125 miles, or a total of  $500,000.  The" owners since' then have  been on the point- bf negotiating more  than once with certain people    backed  with capital to build the road, bpt until recently capital'did not appear over  anxious o go into the venture. A deal  has at last been arranged, the particulars of which have? not yet been given  out to .the public.' it is stated 'and not  denied tha P. Aug";-Heinze of Butte is  at the head- of the-syndicate of American capitalists whojhave secured a control of he charter, inteiests,and have as  a boni fides of their. intention placed'  a considerablevsum j f money in a Victoria bank fr the purpose of protecting  the  charter  and   carrying  out  its  requirements as to the construction, etc.  The deal was arrahged- by Jacq Donald  of Grand Forks, wfio recently went over,  ���the  proposed   route   from  Midway   to  Vernon  accompanied  by James ��� Coyle,  CE. Mr. Coyle was one of Mr. Heinze's  head men during' te 'construction of the  Rsssl'and-Trail    narrow    guage.    road.  Within a short time a force of surveyors will be in the field in charge of Mr.  -Coyle. Partes will start out from Vernon  and  Midway .and  there  will also  be  a  force  working.throug the West  Fork valley. Work on me survey-is to  b�� pushed with- all possible speed and  Mr.  Coyle.' believes a. grade of .not to  exced   one  per  cent  will  be  obtained  without   great   difficulty.   Substantially  th'e route will be as follows:  Starting  at -Ver,non._ on' the, .rAtn.ith - end   bf  the_  Shuswap and Okanagn railway the line  wil) run directly south through a rich'  farming  country   3G  miles  to  Mission  Creole, skirting the west side of Long  lake, which is a parallel sheet of water  to Okanagan lake. At-Duck lake it starts  to take a long swing east, climbing the  north bank of Mission creek to Hydraulic  creek to its source in a flat open country.  It is then on the summit .overlooking the  valley of thc West Fork which it descends  by   an   easy   gradient   to 'the  townsite   of  Carmi,   passing Beaverdale  to Westbridge  a distance of 50 miles.    Westbridge is at  the  junction  of  the  West  Fork  with   thc  main Kettle river.    The route follows the  main  river  east   through  an  open  valley  to  Midway a distance of 20 miles.    From  ono who has been over the proposed route  the  correspondent  ot  The  Tribune  learns  that   no serious  difficulties are  to be  met  with, as for the most part it is through a  fairly  open  country.  Placing as it will the farming and mining districts in direct touch with one  another- the���building��� of��� the��� Vernon���&-  Midway railway Is much desired. Alroadv  the development < of the wonderful rich  mineral resources of the West Fork has  the Boundary mining camps���the natural  means of transportation, and the knowledge that arrangements have been completed to build'a railway through the district will doubtless add a needed impetus  to opening and working claims that at  present are neglected. Not only this, but  pending the construction of the proposed  Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway,  and even after that road is completed, tho  Vernon & Midway; road will always aid  several Important* farming and ranching  sections such as Cache creek, North and  South Thompson rivers, Shuswap, Grand  Prairie, Salmon river valley, Spalleme-  cheen valley, White valley, Vernon valley  and Mission volley. It will also give n  practically direct route from the towns of  the Boundary to the cities on the Coast,  and In this connection will shorten the  time of travel from 20 to 24 hours, and  avoid the present circuitous route via the  Arrow  lakes   and   Revelstoke.  At present produce from the farming  sections mentioned cannot be shipped to  the ooundary mining camps���the natural  market, with profit to the growers and  farmers, by the circuitous route outlined.  With the development of the numerous  camps up the West Fork a splendid market will be had right at home.  The Vernon & Midway railway charter  is owned by the following what interest has been conveyed to the parties who  nave agreed to build the road Is unknown,  Ttobert Wood and Thomas McDonnell of  Greenwood a third Intorest, James Dale  and James Kerr of Carmi a one third interest, and Messrs. Wilson and St. Clair  Kerr of Carmi a one third Interest and  Messrs. Wilson and St;-Clair of Victoria  of Viotoria the remaining third.  station gave the trio an enthusiastic send  off. -.   -  W.

A  crowd   at  the   railway  No Chance of a Visitor From Mars  Unless you have a longer than ordinary lease of life there is little hope  that you will,live to shake hands with  a visitor from Mars.  The fascinating possibility of communication with this much-talked of  planet has been given a solar plexus  blow by the eminent astronomer, sir  -Robert���Ball,���now���lecturing���in���this  country.  The likelihood of signalling to Mars  has been so often discussed and intertwined with so much of a network of romance and speculation that sir Robert  Ball's plain statement that it is an impossibility is causing a popular sensation.      '  It is his array of figures that makes  sir Robert's statements impressive.  Mars, he points out, is one hundred and  fifty times as far away as the moon,  and it is difficult enough to get^accur-  ate information about the surface of  the moon. Any building on earth  would have to be at least one hundred  and fifty times as long and as broad as  it is before an Inhabitant of Mars, with  as powerful as telescope as we have on  earth today, might happen to see it  even if he were looking in this direction  and the ' atmosphere was " unusually  clear.  Using the modern methods of military signalling with flags, it would require a flag at least 300 miles long, 200  miles wide, attached to a pole 500 miles  long, to be waved to and fro before an  inhabitant of Mars looking through his  spyglass would be impressed with the  idea that there was anything unusual  going on. Or, if the imagination could  conceive of Lake Superior filled with  petroleum and set on fire, the great  blaze might appear as a speck of light  to an inhabitant of Mars who happened  to see it.  By the- Marconi wireless telegraphy  system, capable of sending a flash of  light seven times around this earth in  a second of time, it might be  possible to get a message to the  moon if .'the electric, force would  carry in about four seconds and to Mars  in about eight minutes; but there are  stars visible every night through the  telescope so remote that even if a Marconi message had been sent to them at  the moment of the crucifixion thc news  would not have reached there yet. There  are other stars visible, to the naked eye  that could not yet have received the  news of the battle of Waterloo if the  message had been sent by Marconi at  the time the engagement began.  The so-called "canals" on Mars, discredited as such of late years, are, according to sir Robert, canals after all.  He says that they are not the work of  nature, because nature does not work on  straight lines. These canals with the assured existence of arctic and tropical  regions, sir Robert said, are indications that human life is existent on  Mars. No permanent water and no river  can be discerned on Mars. What astronomers see are straight lines, or rather  lines falling in circles around the  globe. These are undoubtedly canals in  a great state of development. It Is not  known that these canals carried off the  Ice and snow that melted during the  summer season, but it is a fact that the  observation of the canals Is clearer at  the season of the year when it may be  assumed that the snow and Ice are melting.    Won't .Consent to Transfer.  i ;.NBW YORK; Dcember- 7.���The- high  court of justice, chancery division, has  declined to consent to the proposed  transfer of the life department of the'  Atlas Assurance Company to the Pelican Life Insurance, says a dispatch to  the Journal of Commerce, from London.

In an  Interview he said: "r came west with  the object of making another tour of.  the Boundary country, of which we  hear so much of in Now York, but primarily to ascertain by personal observa;  tion the prospects of the Granby company in the way of quantity of output  of matte or blister copper and to inspect its ore reserves at Phoenix. Tho  company with which 1 am connected  is one of thn largest buyers of ores,  matte and bullion on the continent.  Weighing my words, I must admit  that the Granby smelter proved a revelation to me Both in regard to equipment and methods of ore treatment, as  well as in respect on tne possibilities  of tonnage no improvement could be  suggested. [ believe the Granby plant  is treating its ore more cheaply than  any other copper matting plant in ex-,  istence, largely because these ores are  self-fluxing and on account of the  cheap of power. This second consideration is a vital one in itself. I am looking forward with interest to my Phoenix trip. The inauguration of the use  of steam shovels in quarrying ores on  the Knobhill certainly mark a novel  departure in gold cepper mining, and  has merited all the attention it is receiving in the mining world."

Is  not such a proceeding by the judge  government by injunction and a substitute for trial by jury?  If judges can create new offenses unknown to the statutes, prejudge defendants by anticipation, convict them  without trial by jury and prescribe penalties out of hand for acts not prohibited by law, the guarantees contained  in the constitution are of no avail.

BEWARE OF IMITATIONS  Our Compound Syrup of White  Pine and Tar  CURES COUGHS AND COLDS  The Trihuni- is forced to ask its  subscribers to overlook its shortcomings this morning. Bucking  and broken Merganthalers, like  imbrokeu bronchos, are exasperating.    The alarmist statements regarding British Columbia made by Robert Ward when passing through  Toronto on his way to London,  England, are strongly at variance  with the opinions of Mr. Sternfield  of the American Metal Company of  -New York, who is on a tr ip of inspection through the Boundary  country. Mr. Sternfeld admits  that what he saw at the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks was a revelation to him. It is true Mr. Sternfeld is nofc at all interested in the  political situation. Tn this respect  lie differs from Mr. Ward.  The assertion by the Canadian Mining Review of Ottawa that the reply to  its-'strictures on the Granby company's  methods of doing business was published in "boom sheets" will not hold  water. There are no more conservative  newspapers in the country than the  Vancouver News-Advertiser and The  Tribune, and the B. C. Mining Record  of Victoria and the Mining and Engineering Journal of New Yory have never  been classed as "boom" journals. So far  as The Tribune is concerned, during the  nine years it has been published, its  owners aad managers have never re-  "sweet" on), and the $5000 for the fire  alarm system were introduced for only  one purpose, and that purpose was to  try and defeat the endorsement of tiie  ?] 50,000 for the electric power plant,  tl remains to be seen whether the property owners of Nelson will allow themselves to be "jobbed" in the interests  of the West Kootenay Power & Light  oCmpauy.  ���Tames M.

WASHINGTON, ' December 8.���Pubr  licity, which is -president Roosevelt's  theory of the legislation- best adapted  to restrict the trust-evil, is provided for  upon an elaborate scale in a bill introduced by representative Littlefield of  Maine. It. requires all corporations engaged in interstate commerce "to file  returns-with the secretary of the treasury disclosing their true financial condition, and of their capital stock, and  imposing* a tax .upon surh as have outstanding capital stock .unpaid in. whole  or n part."  Before" September 1st of each year all  corporations engaged in interstate commerce must make reports, upon blanks  which the government will provide for  that purpose, giving their name and the  Property owners, if you would see  your real estate increase in value, vote  FOR By-Law No 102.  Increase of Government Injunction.  The pointed commems of judge Tuley  before the Iroquois Club of Chicago  upon the rapid development of government injunction cannot fail to arrest  the attention of the thoughtful. With  he past twelve months judges in the  United States and Canada have been  particularly busy-reading new theories  into the law which they are supposed  to interpret. In their eagerness to exercise authority at critical moments  they have arrogated to themselves not  only the right of the legislative power  to make laws but the duty of the administrative branch of the government  to enforce them. The fashion having  once been set, there has grown a sort of  rivalry betwea the courts of equity as  to which one can go the farthest. The  process of the usurpation of power by  the judiciary is thus briefly described  by judge Tuley:  The judge, without hearing the defendant, decrees what he shall or shall  not do in advance and without a hearing, enforces the performance of the  commands of the writ, then brings the  place and date of their organization, and  the same nformation respecting constituent companies. If there has been' 'a  reorganization the name of the original  corporaton must be given with the same  .information as- to all* prior companies  in the chain of organization.  These reports must show the amount  of capital stock, authorized number of  shares, par value, whether common or  preferred and distinction, between each,  tho amount issued and outstanding, the  amount paid in, and whether in cash or  property,, and if in property, describing  in detail the kind and character, with  tho cash market.;value at- the time paid  in. The total indebtedness also must  be shown, giving its nature and the purpose for which it was incured.  The reports .also must set forth the  assets at prevailing prices and the liabilities, with current, assets and liabilities, total earnings anu income, operating expenses, interest, taxes, maintenance, permanent improvements, net  earnings and dividends declared, with  rate and date during preceding year, and  the salaries of officers and wages of employees. Swearing to a false report is  made perjury, punishable as such under  the criminal statutes.  Corporations '.engaged in interstate  commerce whose capital is not fully  paid in are required to pay an annual  tax on their capital stock. The tax is  made a first lien, and corporations failing to pay it shall be restricted from  doing interstate business. '-  The secretary ofthe treasury is required to publish-for free distribution  a list of al corporations thus reporting.

Henry N. Neligan, third officer of the;  steamship Irada and an official observer  of marine events for the hydrographic  office, makes the following official re-'  port:  October 26th, 1901.���At 11 a. m. today,'  in latitude 27 degrees 26 minutes north,  and longitude: 90 degrees 18' minutes,  west, passed a large sea serpent appearing about 100 feet long. The head was-  blunt, square nose and was ejecting  water to the height of two or theree feet  from its nostrils. The animal or fish'  had three distinct sets of fins and a tail  lying across like a porpoise. On its  back was a series of humps like a  camel. It was heauing about east  (true) and moving slowly.  This seems to settle it���if there was  any doubt about it. Since the dawn of  history, since that flrst mariner whom  Horace salcTmust .have had a heart  thrice bound round with triple brass to  dare to adventure the unknown sea,  there have been reports of sea serpents.  They have ranged in size from the  length of a giant boa-constrictor to the  one described in the fo'castle song:  Prom the tip of his nose to the tip of his  tail  It's just nine thousand mile.  Scientific men have made due allowance for the vivid imaginations of seafaring men and have, recognized that  behind these tales there was a solid  truth���a survival of those ancient monsters which peopled the sea when man  was still a tailed arborean, speaking the  language which professor Garner makes  a living and a stir by trying to recover.  It is not strange that none of these  monsters has ever been captured. The  sea is so vast both in surface and in  depth. When they die they go to the  bottom or are soon torn to pieces by  other fish and sea birds. They avoid the  haunts of man. It may be that, some of  the more formidable ones have now and  then met and attacked a small ship. If  so, perhaps they destroyed the last  witness of a combat so hideous that no  imagination of possible horrors of the  mysterious sea could conceive it.  Origin of Beneficent Institution,  One afternoon last year a Parisian  lady saw a servant girl dissolved in  tears seated on her knees. Inquiries elicited the naive confession that she had  been spending tho previous hour in  fruitless efforts to arrange the infant's  attire, and after hopelessly struggling  'with the mysteries of swaddling clothes  had' given up the attempt. How was  she to face the mother, her mistress,  with the child in this undressed state?  Despair at the thought had driven her  to tears. Between,the sobs she explained  that she had that morning accepted an  nivitation as nursery maid without ever  . having held-a; baby in her-arms before.  The kind hearted lady dressed the hapless infant and determined there and  then to start a school for servant girls.  The institution is now a flourishing concern, and. the lady who. founded it has  had the satisfaction of turning out several hundred domestic servants, fully  equipped for the efficient discharge of  their duties-in various branches.  a ,    ;��,  OFFICECBAKER STREET WEST," HELS0J1, B.

One new location was recorded at  the Nelson record office yesterday,  the Miniette, situated onMcGarrity  creek, ten miles in a westerly direction from Nelson, by Charles Munroe. Certificates of work were issued to J. A. McRae on the Pingree  and to James V. Hearn on the Golden Cord.  Dr. Fagan, secretary of the pro"  vincial board of health, was in Nelson yesterday. It is, said that he  will be one of the expert witnesses  in the case of Hallvs. LaBau, which  will come up again next week, and  which largely turns upon the respective merits of formaline and  sulphur as, disinfectants. -  . A fifteen-gallon "demijohn addressed,to John A. Turner, government agent,,created considerable  speculation jm, front of the' courthouse yesterday!. The explanation  tendered by the government agent  was that the demijohn contained  formaldehyde, which had been forwarded by the provincial board of  health to be used for disinfecting  purposes throughout the district.  The case of Hall & Rose vs. LaBau will come on for trial again at  the session of the county court  which opens in this city on Monday  next.- By the decision of the full,  court on appeal this case is left very  much in the same position as it was  when the case was first started save  that the plaintiff's have been required to pay all costs in the action  up to date. These are" said to  amoun t_to._ more_than-theamount-  originally involved in the case.  The first payment was made on  Saturday by the Toronto syndicate  upon its purchase of some 3200  acres of coal lands in the Similkameen valley near Ashnola. The  Similkameen Valley Coal Company  of this city were the vendors of the  property, which was recently inspected by William Blakemore.  The purchase price was fixed at  $9000, and the first payment  amounted to $2500. In the Toronto  syndicate the principals are D. B.  Murray and J. W. St. John.  The case of the Lion Brewery of  Rossland vs. William Gosnell of the  Castle Brewery of this city will  come up before the chief justice at  the sittings of the supreme court  which open in Rossland today. This  is an action over a number of beer  kegs which the Rossland brewer  claims belong to him, but which the  Nelson man claims were purchased  by him in good faith. The kegs  are valued at $42, but the legal  costs are now an object of greater  interest than the kegs. W. A. Galliher will leave for Rossland to look  after the Nelson brewer's interest.  Those who desire to enlist for  service in South Africa with the  contingent which is now being  raised by the Dominion government  will have an opportunity of doing  so today, when lieutenant Leckie  will be in this city as recruiting officer. Those who are anxious to  enlist are directed to meet at the  armory of the local eompany of the  R. M. R. today. It was not known  last evening whether the recruiting officer would arrive in the city  on last evening's train or on the  train this morning, so that it will  be impossible to say just what time  he will be in the armory to receive  recruits, but any who.may be interested may count upon meeting him  after* the arrival of the morning  train today.
