 Un*teStt*BteTmrrmr"'-tT -���mi__r^r^r.^ryn^avrfr,^Jrrv  BOB?_KB._________a-m__m_____  iSS^^pB  H  li  ESTABLISHED  1892  If  FRIDAY  M0EN1NG,  DECEMBER  20  1901  MUCH DIFFERENT  TRAMWAY COMPANY HAS  POWER TO SELL.  ITS POSITION IN .REGARD TO THE  WEST KOOTENAY COMPANY  IS DEFINED.  C. S. Drummond'of thc British Electric  Traction  Compahy,  and  chairman  of    tho   London   board   of   the   Nelson  Kleetric Tramway Company, had an interview with   the members of the city  council   last evening,  when  the affairs  of the local, company, were talked over.  Coming as it did upon the eve of thc  voting upon the by-law authorizing the  expenditure of .fl.50,000 for tlie installation   of a   power   plant   on   Kootenay  river, it is unfortunate that The Tribune  is not in a position to give a toil r.ccount  of thc interview.   .A representative was  present at': the meeting, but he was informed  that the desire was  merely to  have a talk over matters witli the tramway people, and   that  a report   of the  proceedings was not contemplated;  Had  the interview  been of an ordinary nature it would have   been .passed over  without further notice, but from information  gleaned  from  those  in  attendance it appears that thc interview was  a   most   extraordinary  one,   in   that  it  brought to light thc fact that thero is  and lias been no Feai clashing of interests between tlie city and tho ��� tramway  company; that there is nothing to pre-  k vent tlie tramway company from selling  ����������� electric power  to  the city,  but on  the  contrary that it is .willing and anxious  to dispose of power;   and that the installation of a city pi.-.nt on Kootenay  river would be welcomed by the tramway company rather than be regarded  as a death warrant.  lt is because The Tribune believes the  information given by Mr. Drummond, is  important, and that it should ��� be as  widely disseminated as possible in" view  of thc voting on the by-laws today, that  it endeavors ,to give "the'" gist of Mr.-  Drummond's remarks. They may not  be complete, but they are as complete  as the opportunity for securing the information would permit.  The one thing which struck most of  Mr.! Drummond's: auditors was that  there has been considerable misplaced  sympathy on tap in Nelson for the  tramway company. He did not attend  the meeting of the city council to make  a poor mouth. He did notiintimatethat  tlie action of tlie ratepayers of the city  In refusing to accept the jug-handled  power contract with the !West Kootenay  Power & Light Company should be punished by the closing down of, the tramway, nor did he intimate that today the  employees of the tramway company  would be out in force working in the interests of the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company, as they.were when the  power contract by-law was submitted  to the ratepayers.  Shutting down t.he tramway is apparently one of the hist things Mr. Drummond has thought of.   He intimated to  tho members   of   the   council   that the  ^T3ritish-Electric"Tra"ction-Co"mpany~h"ar<P  tramways in operation in all parts of  t.he globe, and that its investments in  such amounted to something like $30,-  000,000.    This being   so,   he   intimated  that it would not be very good business  for so large a company to shut down  and admit its failure and the loss of the  $1.75,000 that had boen embarked in the  venture.    He admitted  that there had  been  some   disappointment  in  connection with  the -tramway venture.    The  city, for one thing, had not made the  progress  that was expected  of it.    He  did not wish to create the impression  that Nelson was standing still.    Such  waa far from being the case, as he had  noted very marked improvement in the  city since his former visits.    But there  had not been the growth that was.expected,  and  consequently  the  business  of the tramway company was not what  it had been anticipated.  He was of the opinion that if a better  understanding was arrived at tlie tramway and the city could be of mutual assistance. He did not wish it to be understood that the tramway eompany was  wedded to the -West Kootenay Power  & Light Company. If it was wedded to  anything it was wedded to the City of  Nelson.  One way in which the tramway company and the ci.ty could be of mutual  advantage to each 'oti.vji' was l'or the  city to purchase from the tramway company the surplus power which it did not  use, but which it was obliged to pay for  to the West Kootenay Power fe Light  Company.  This suggestion pretty nearly floored  a number of the aldermen who remembered the ^statement of the local oflicers  cf the company that it was not at lib'  erty to sell any power to thecity. Their  incredulity was soon overcome, however,  as Mr. Drummond stated that it was  he who had made the bargain with the  West Kootenay Power & "Light Company; that he had the power to sell  power to the city under it; and that he  was prepared to exercise that power and  sell the city such electrical energy as it  might need up to 1.00 horse-power if the  city wanted it.  To say the aldermen were surprised  with the turn matters have takeii as between the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company, the tramway company,  f^and the city, is putting it mildly. It is  understood that Mr. Drummond will  make the city an  offer to sell power  which will be laid before the council  at its next regular meeting on Monday  evening.  As intimate in the course of his interview, the offer will be to sell the city  just such power as it may need up to  100 horse-power at a rate as favorable  as the best rate quoted by the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company,  that is, $3.75 per horse-power por  month. If this is clone, the West Kootenay Power & Light Company will  speedily cease to be a factor in the municipal politics of Nelson.  Insist on Bein-? *Oann<iians.  TORONTO, December 19.���An exciting incident took place tonight, at a dinner given by Canadian manufacturers.  Wilburn Robins of Walkerville, Ontario,  delivered an address on imperialism, and  referring to French Canadians objecting  to their being called French said there  were no English Canadians and why  French? They were all Canadians. He  appealed to French Canadians to drop  the word "French." Mr. Roland of  Montreal replied and said the French  flag whenever shown was always enlivened with the Union Jack. The last gun  fired for British connection would be by  French Canadians. He was loudly  cheered.   ���     ���  eastern'mnadian NEWS  BYLAW NO. 102  And a Rise in Real Estate Values Will Follow.

Mr. Drummond   evidently means business, and, there  are few people   in   Nelson who  will not willingly aid his company in the direction of his proposal.     More:     There   are   few  people in Nelson, if the city! had  its own power plant on Kootenay river, who would not be in  favor of "selling the street railway, company power at a merely  nominal sum per. year.   The way  to    help    enterprises    like    the  street railway company is to be  in a position to help them.

If By-law No. 102 is carried today, it  will be published in every paper in  Canada and in many papers in the  United States within a month. The announcement that Nelson has voted  $150,000 to be spent in the' erection of  an up-to-date power plant will show outside people that the people of Nelson  have confidence in their-, town and in  the country on which the town depends.  Confidence begets confidence.  The voting of $150,000 to erect a power  plant on Kootenay river is notice to the  provincial government that the city's  application for land suitable for a power  station is bona fide. Defeat the $150,000  by-law, and it is an intimation to the  provincial government that the people  j of Nelson are mere windy triflers; that  they want to get hold of something that  they do not want to use.  The people of Nelson voted $15,000 in  debentures in 1899 that were not sold.  They again voted $76,000 in 1900 that  were not sold. This makes a total of  $91,000 of debentures that were authorized but which were not sold. Did the  authorization of these issues of debentures impair the credit of Nelson? No!  And no one knows it better than mayor  Fletcher.  What Some Canadians Propose.

LONDON, December 19.���Sir Thomas  Lipton, in the long interview which he  had with   king   Edward   yesterday   at  which the America's cup races were discussed, unfolded his plans for the future.   His majesty exhibited the keenest  interest in them and at times offered  suggestions.    He expressed the opinion  that it would be very hard to get a boat  to beat   the   Americans,   to   which sir  Thomas replied that   ho  Avas   at  least  confident he could secure a yacht a good  deal    better .than   the   Shamrock   II.  When sir Thomas had finished explaining his reasons for this belief, the king  appeared   to   be  satisfied  and   heartily  wished him success.    Sir Thomas Lipton also conveyed to king Edward a recapitulation   of   president   Roosevelt's  friendly comments on the king and on  England, which   formed   the   gist of a  conversation  between sir Thomas and  Mr. Roosevelt, while the former was in  the United States.    The king' was evidently much pleased.    In turn he told  sir   Thomas   how   greatly   he admired  president Roosevelt's personality, which,  unfortunately,  he only knew by hearsay.    The king takes great interest in  the  preparations  for  bu'.lding  another  challenger   for the  cup   Avhich  are believed to be already on foot.  positively   declined   to   run   for   the  mayoralty chair.

Thinks Them Scarcely Human.  WASHINGTON,   December  19.���"History  affords no parallel of a whole people'thus  practically ���'turning ��� war   traitors,   and   in  tho  genius  of   no   other  people   was- ever  found   such   masterful   powers   of  secrecy  and dissimulation, but, it is needless lo say  that   no  powerful   state  was  ever  erected  or ever can be erected on such Immoral or  unenlightened    foundations.''    This    slaie-  ment is made by general Chaffee, .military  governor of the Philippines, in review cf a  number   of   conrtmartlals   in   the   Island--,  the   records  of  which   have  been   received  Ml   the   war   department.   The   case   which  hi ought   forth   Uns   comment   was   one   in  whicli seven  natives were  tried jointly on  u charge of inurd ;r. The accused were soldiers in  the Insurgent army and alter defeat   hy   the   Amorioa-i   army   lu   the   Held,  abandoned even  Ih-.' show of open opposition  and  look up  tholr residences at   I'ay-  tay, a placo prolecled by nn American gat-  rison.    Then,     following     Ihe    proclaimed  policy   of   llio   Insurgjiil   chiefs,   they   proceeded   to  ���ng.inl/.c   seereilv  ,i   lulu   band.  When .-iiilliorizatioii  had  boen given  to vs-  lahllsh   civil   govjriuneiil   the   band   came  forward   under   the   leadership   of   a   resl-  ueni padre and were elected municipal olll-  cors of Taylay. Then ensued a remarkable  attempt to serve  two masters.   In all  lawful  mutters they  served  with  due appeai-  ancc   lo   the  American   government,   while  at the same  lime  I hey labored secroUy lu  ihe  interest** of the  insurgents.  This dual  form of government, says general Chaffee  existed  everywhere in strongly garrisoned  cities like Manila, as well as the .smallest  cities.   The   municiiJ.il   officers   of   Ta.\ lay  next ontered upon a sesies-of murders and  continued  thei;'  work until  the number of-  mysteriou.s  disappearances  led   to   I lie discovery of the perpetrators  by  the American   aulhoiitles.   '-One   undeniable   truth,"  says  general  Charfee,   "stands  out  in  this  case as in hundreds of like cases of murder,   that  the  average  native of  these  islands has not iliore than  the merest rudimentary concopti-in of his Individual rights  and  duties as a  man,  and   no ono knows  this a.s well as the chiefs who use him for  their  nefarioii-i  purposes."  Six ul' tli-j seven natives were .sentenced  lo be hanged, but general Chaffee commuted the sentence of three of them lo  imprisonment at hard labor for life. The  seventh nati/e, Leonardo De Posey, a  regular ordained priest, asked for and was  granted a separate irial. At his trial De  Posey, who was held to be'tlie chief ag*int  in lhe Taytay murddrs, took advantage of  tiio loophole whicli appeared to be afforded  by his iiosltlia as priest by contending  that while the participators in the wholesale nuii'dors in Taytay would confess the  same at confessional he was compelled by  his .sacred olllco to keep silence. General  Chaffee pronounced this defense of no  value, saying, lhat "tlie confessional does  nol lay up >n any man, priest or layman,  the obligal'on of suppressing knowledge  of crimes belig committed by third parties.'' General Ch.ift'c conllrmed the sentence of death impDsed by the court mar-  tlal whicli tried De Pos-.*iy, but commuted  the sentence to LO years'  Imprisonment at  NKW YORK, December in.���The sale*of-  a -slock exchange seat for f":i,000 is reported  to have Ijien made jcsteidav This Is the  highest ni ,<_e on record, the last Iwo sales  having been .{71,000.

SALINAS, California, December 19.���  The northern bound Sunset express No.  9 of tho Southern Pacinc, due to arrive  cat San Ardo at 12:50 a. ni., and the Sunset express No. JO, from San Francisco,  due to leave San Ardo at the same time,  were   in collision   this   morning.     The  trains are scheduled to pass at Uplands,  a few miles south   of  San  Ardo.   Tho  southbound   train   left   Salinas   seven  minutes late and  through  some error  met the northbound train head on, one-  half mile west of Uplands, between San *  Ardo and San Lucas,   rioth trains were  completely wrecked, the engines being  thrown from tlyj tracks and several'of.  tiie cars telescoped.    Train No. 9 was",  partly destroyed by fire.    It is reported"  that ten or twelve persons were killed-'  and fifty injured.   The southbound train*  was   crowded   with   passengers,   every'  seat being taken and some persons be- -  ing obliged to stand,    'unong these on  the  train -wer.e SO  discharged  soldiers  on their way east, and ....���= All-American. -  base ball team from the" east on their  way to Los Angeles. The track is completely blocked aud no trains can pass  the wreckage today.    The Sunset-limited and two  freight trains, are being -  held at Bradley.  The   train   dispatcher   at   San   Luis-  Obispo said the cause of the accidents  was  due to t.he failure of the north- -"  bound train to stop at Uplands to allow;,.  the other train to pass.   A special train  with  doctors  on  board has  been  sent  from here to the scene of the accident.,  The baggage "and chair cars of the north- -  bound train are said to have burned. .'-  SAN   FRANCISCO,    December   19.���--'���'  News of tbo collision between Southern   k  Pacific tiains at Uplands on the coast  road is very meager and conflicting. At -  first it was reported that at least ten ~  people were killed and fifty injured. <A'  passenger on one of the trains telephoned the Associated Press from San Louis  that only three were killed, a fireman  and   baggageman   and   his   helper, 'and  that four Italian laborers were injured,  none  of  them   fatally.    Later another  passenger wired that there were three  killed   and  30  injured,  many of them  fatally.    This dispatch is probably authentic.    General   manager Krutschnitt  of the  Southern   Pacific Company was  a passenger on the northbound train.  Night  Report.  SAN ARDO, California, December 19.  -Southern Pacific train No. 9 for San  Francisco, and No. 10 southbound, collided between here and Uplands about  1:30 o'clock this morning. The trains  were to meet at Uplands, but it is'claimed the air brake on No. 10 would not  hold and it crashed into No. 9 before  ^tlioJattei^train^could-be-stopped^smash-  ing both engines, two baggage cars and  one mail car into kihdling wood. The  cars took fire immediately and were destroyed. Some mail and express packages wero burned.  The killed are: Fireman Will Garland, San Francisco, jumped and was  caught under the engine; assistant express messenger, name unknown. Four  Italians, two brakemen, a fireman and  engineer Jack Coffey were injured. Several passengers were slightly injured in  tho chair car and smoking cars.  Considerable caslt was shipped on the  Wclls-Fargo cur. A safe containing tho  bullion is still in tho flames.' The loss  to the railway company is said to bo  about $10,000.  rSJiffiS'  '���&!��$  "KM  Fatal Gas Explosion.  PITTSBURG, December 19.���Ten men  wore burned to death and four injured  by an explosion of gas at tho Soho furnace of Jones   &   Liiughlin,   Limited,  Second avenue, near Hrady street, today.  The explosion  was caused by a slip iu  the furnace, the gas and ilames blazing  upward through the bell.   Tho men were  on  the furnace platform  S5  feet abovo  thc  ground.    There  wero 19  when  the  explosion    occurred,   and   15   of   them  were caught in the flames.   Two of them  escaped with slight injuries. The other  four were the regular men employed as  top fillers and escaped without, injury.  Tbe  explosion  was  caused  by the gas  becoming encased in a crust of cinder  forming at the bottom of the furnace.  A wheelbarrow containing ore had been  sent up to the men and when they went  to dump it into the bell of the furnace  they pushed it over too far and it rolled  into the hopper.    The barrow weighed  000 pounds and was too heavy for tho  four men to raise.   The fifteen laborers  were then sent up to assist them.   Had  it not been for the barrow accident, no  one would have been hurt, as the regular men knew how to protect themselves  at such times, as similar explosions are  of frequent occurrence.    When the ox-  plosion occurred burning heaps of cinders   settled   around    the  men  almost  knee deep.    Their shrieks were terrible  in their frantic   efforts   to save themselves.

The genial alderman from the  West ward was not supposed to know  anything at all about electricity except  what he was told by his friend, mayor  Fletcher, but ho was said to be exceedingly well posted on isolation hospitals.  However, there arc nothing but surprises in this world, and one of the surprises is that alderman Selous is really  an expert electrician and not an expert  on questions that pertain to the erection and operation of isolation hospitals.  One of.the arguments that was used  by mayor Fletcher and alderman Selous  when the late-lamented by-law was be-  =fore=the=people"^or^c^nsideWti��irrwas=  that.if the by-law was defeated the.  street cars would stop running. The bylaw was defeated. The street cars did  not stop running. Is it not strange that  this prediction of mayor Fletcher and  alderman Selous did not come to pass?  These two worthy officials are still in  the business of predicting. One predicts that the city could not sell $150,-  000 in debentures and thc other predicts  that if the debentures oould be sold city  engineer McCulloch could not build the  power plant for tho amount he estimates it would cost. The people are  getting a trifle tired of people who are  unwilling to tlo anything but make  "blue ruin" predictions. They want  men in oflice who will do things.  The interference   of  corporations   in  municipal elections have a tendency to  degrade and corrupt the electorate. The  West Kootenay   Power   &  Light   Company, Limited, of Rossland has not a  .dollar.invested in Nelson;  it has boycotted our merchants, because they were  unwilling to do its bidding.    It is not  seeking  an   eatrance  into   Nelson   for  ���.any,love it has for our-people. *It is  'seeking an entrance because its man-  agfement knows that there is money to  be made in supplying power and light  in a permanent and progressive town.  If there is money to be made in that,  way for the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company, it is hot unreasonable  to believe that there is money in it for  the City of Nelson, seeing that the city  in also in the business of selling power  and  light.    Money made by the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company goes  into the pockets of the few shareholders  of the company, none of whom reside  in Nelson.-  Money made by the City of  Nelson .wes   into the   pockets   of the  people who live in Nelson.  with much attention.   The railway projects, especially,  aro   receiving   careful  study here, as it is generally believed  that oh  their success  will  depend  the  future of Russia in her inevitable struggle   for    the   mastery    of   Asia.    The  Kreuz   Zietung   draws   attention   this  morning to the projected railway from  Tashkent to Orenburg, the flrst sod of  which has just been turned.    Judging  by the ceremony of turning the first sod,  at which the entire garrison of Tashkent was present, with th'e minister of  war and numerous generals, the railway  when* finished will serve iri the first instance" for   military   purposes.     Russia  will then possess- uninterrupted railway  communication' between   her   military  centers in Europe and the Afghan and  Persian frontiers.'   At the present time  any attempt to increase the body of- her  troops in Central Asia is attended with  the greatest difficulty, owing to the fact  that they  must  be  transported   across  the Caspian, and that means transport  wholly inadequate   for   an   emergency.  With    railway    communication  'direct  from Russia to Tashkent,  it will  be* a  comparatively   easy "matter   to   throw  huge bodies of troops, say on to Kushk.  Troops will   be able   to   proceed   from  Moscow to Kushk without the necessity  of ��� changing   carriages,    and    generals  operating there'could reckon on  regular enforcements.   Not only will the railway serve an important strategic purpose, it will be also important commercially.    Kirghiz  Steppe,   oh  which  the  railway "enters after leaving Orenburg,  swarms with cattle, horses, sheep, and  goats.

The   Union    Pacific,    the    Colorado   &  Southern   (north)  and   the   Burlington  (eastward)  are practically at a standstill as a result of the present storm in  Wyoming and Nebraska.    AU trains on  the'Union Pacific are compelled to spend  hours in snowdrifts waiting,for the rotary plow to make openings so they can  pass through, and to make matters worse  a Union Pacific rotary plow puslicd-by  two  big compound  engines slashed  its  way to rear of train for Sherman. Thc  wreckage caught lire and a caboose and  nine  tourist  cars  were completely  destroyed.   The work of clearing the track  is slow and tho blockade may last for  an indefinite period.    On  the Colorado  & Southern, 21 miles north of Cheyenne,  a passenger train was derailed.   The accident, has completely tied up trafiic on  that branch.    No trains have come in  over the Burlington  branch from Hol-  derbridge for two days.   A drift derailed  an engine about 100 miles east of Cheyenne and the wreckers have not yet succeeded in getting it back upon the rails.  In addition the branch is now snowbound  for a stretch of more than 50 miles.  from American residents here.

NEW YORK, December 19.���-A further reduction in the price of copper  of one cent was announced by the United  Metals Selling Company, the selling  agents of 'the Amalgamated Copper  Company today. This brings the price  for lake copper from 13 cents for elec-  troylite to 12 7-8 cents, and for castings to 12 1-2 cents. The reduction  from the price long held by the Amalgamated Copper Com puny is thus about  four cents on all grades. The cut in  copper was without effect on the stock  market except that the trading in  amalgamated copper fell away to almost nothing, but the price rose a fraction over last night for the flrst time  during the day.

II is declared by the commission that outside of live provinces there is peace in the  Philippines. Taking up the question of the  political future of thc Philippines, it is. declared lhat the theory on which the commission is proceeding is that the only possible method uf instructing the Philippine  people in methods of free institutions and  self government is to make a government  partly of Americans and partly of Pili-  plnos, with ultimate control in American  hands, for some time to come. Less than  10 per cent,of the people speak Spanish and  the educated people under the influence of  Si).ini.-:h teaching have but a faint conception" of civil liberty and the mutual selC-  lestrnint required for its maintenance. The  commission have already, however, established municipal suffrage in the pacified  parts of the islands and have limited the  suffrage lo those who can read and write  Hnglish or Spanish or who own property of  the Miluc of *$230 or have been municipal  oflicers.
