Congress will take no action' on the.  verdict. This much can be stated with  positivenoss from a canvass of leading  members; of both., senate and house.  Resolutions for an investigation xvill  doubtless be introduced at either end  cif tho Capitol by personal friends of the  admiral, but thoy will be sent to committee, and tho chances arc against  them being placed before the. bodies for  action, even with adverse recommendation.  In the heat of the indignation aroused  by the findings of the tribunal, ihwrc  was geueral talk of a congressional investigation, but on calm reflection many  cf Schley's most sincorD friends recognize the futility of such a course. In the  first place, whatever ecrgress might do  would lesult in no good to the man censured by the court. It is true, a vote of  confidence might bo given him, but forever after there would be staring him  and the American people, in the face  that cold, relentless verdict, of admirals  Ber ham and Ramsay. It is to that verdict, rendered by men possessed of expert knowledge on the questions they  wero called upon to decide, that posterity will go for an estimate of Schley,  aiid not a sentimental resolution of congress ignorant -of the technical issues  involved in the Sarapson-Schley contro-  ���verfy.  It is to be considered fortunate that  admirnl Dewey should have dissented  in such equivocal terms from the conclusions of bis nspocint.es. His oniii'on.  placed sU\n. by side with those of Ben-  hnm and Ramsay, will serve to temper  the pens that arc to write history of  .our flayy in years to come.  Another obstacle in tho way of a legislative mquiiy into the case is. the attitude of the lcadeis on Capitol Hill to-  waid thc administiation ot the navy de-  pjitmcr.t.

"<=���=*. ****=* i���^-.S-S'Si��S'^���^V^'^^ ���**3?-  M  &.  Yesterday all four of the money bylaws submitted to'the property owners  for their approval were defeated.   This  is the first time since-Nelson became an  incorporated city that the people-have  refused to vote   money   asked   by   the  council.   If such action means anything,  it means that mayor Fletcher and his  administration are thoroughly discredited;, so discredited that the people will  not even trust them to issue debentures  for tho payment of a school house already  built or for increasing the 'efficiency of the fire department,   jf there  are   two   things   that ' the   people   of  western   towns   take   pride   in,   it   is  schools  and  fire  departments;   but tlie  people of Nelson have refused to vote  mayor  Fletcher  and alderman   Selous,  Hamilton,   Paterson,   and   Gillett   the  small sum of $15,000 for these two purposes.   No one except alderman Selous  " wanted  an  isolation  hospital  built  on  money borrowed for a term of twenty  years at 5 por cent, but that was one of  the subterfuges   resorted   to   to   bring  -aboul-the-defeat-of-the-one-by-lawwhlch-  the town was interested in, that is, the  by-law to raise money to erect a power  plant on Kootenay river.   The more bylaws submitted the more disgusted the  people would be, and they would show  their disgust by voting against the good  by-laws along with the bad.    This was  clearly shown in the East ward, where  many ballots were placed   in   the   box  folded together, all  four being marked  "against."   Thc   result   of   yesterday's  poll shows that a majority of the property owners of Nelson favor the erection of a power plant on Kootenay river,  and had the electric light and power bylaw been submitted as a separate proposition   it   would    undoubtedly    have  received the necessaty .three-fifths vote.  Tlie Kietcher administration will retain  the unenviable" reputation of encompassing the def aat of a by-law that if passed  would have placed the city in an inde-  pendent^position to carry on one of its  best  paying  utilities.    However,   they  have less than a month to serve, and the  hands of their successors are not ln any  way tied by the   result  of  yesterday's  election.    Next year's council can submit money by-laws for any purpose immediately they take office and are asked  to do so by the owners of one-tenth of  the value of the real   property   in the  city.   In tho meantime, it is. the duty of  every elector who is not wedded to the  West Kootenay Power   &   Light Company to take  an   interest   in   selecting  candidates for mayor and aldermen who  can be depended on, if elected, to stand  by their pre-election pledges.   No more  shufllers and weak-knees are wanted in  the city council.  Thc in/luence of newspapers may be  gauged by thc vote on tne four money  by-laws in this city yest-inlay. The  Economist, which is edited by that  astute politician David Mark Carley,  ventured to predict that the electric  light by-law would not receive the noc-  csfrry three-fifths majority and that  Ihe other three would carry. The electric light by-law was the only one that  received a majority of the votes cast,  the other three being badly defeated.  The Miner, which is owned by the  Crow's Nest Coal'Company, advocated  the adoption of the fire alarm, school,  and hospital by-laws and the defeat of  tho electric light by-law. The three  which it favored were badly defeated,  and the one against which it made its  onslaughts editorially and through communications from anonymous writers  received a good-sized majority. The  Tribune claimed there was no immediate necessity for borrowing money for  either of tho purposes named in three  of the by-laws, and the three by-laws  were defeated by majorities ranging  from 21 to 152. It, however, advocated  the adoption of the electric light bylaw, and that by-law received a majority  of 17 votes.  The strike in the Ottawa mine on  Springer cre^k. Slocan City district, has  made a few men feel as Mark Twain, in  "Roughing It," says he felt whon he and  his partner struck il rich in a claim that  they owned for two weeks, when ii. was  jumped and held by others. Mark and'  his partner felt like millionaires and lay  awake nights planning how they would  spend their millions.  Tho result of the election yesterday  clearly shows that alderman Irving and  Madden represent tho views of the majority of the property owners of the  citv. '   If the proposition made by Mr. Drummond of the street railway company to  the members of thc city -council is a  bona fide-one, it should be accepted by  the council. The city can probably  utilize all the surplus power the street  railway company has at its disposal. 13y  doing so more people can be served with  electric light and some of those who are  now being served will get better light,  and the street railway company will be  helped out in a way that will moan a  saving of ?3000 to $4000 a year in operating expenses.  It now appears tliat thc Victoria dispatch printed in the Nolson Miner and  the Rossland Aliner on Sunday last regarding Joseph Martin's candidature in  Victoria was a "fake." Mr. Martin says  he, atrno time, had any such intention.  "SEAGRAM"  THE LEADING CANADIAN WHISKEY  TRY IT  IN BULK, 2, 4, and 7 years old.  IN CASES, '83 and Star.

Co  lumbia Canning Company  It is said that some trouble las cropped  up at the b'srn mine betwen the men and  the lessee of the property over .the payment  of wages. The difficulty, it is understood, is  Jn the curling competition letween tho  rMsiflsnfs and vlee-prcHidciifs, rinks thJ  president's men increased their lead by ten  points last evening. The game between the  Turner and Riehaidson '.inks pro\ed a surprise. On tlie previous evening the Hicham-  son rink had run up a so>re of 22 to 5 in a  i:ractic? game, but last evening- the Turner  link, vt-hlch is upholding tin hi nor uf the  president's sii 3, can-led oft' the game with  a score of .9 to 12. On the commencement  of the ol.r/enlh end tho sec re stood 3? to  12 In favor of the Turn ������i1 rirk. but i-v ornn-l  curling and good luck thry increased th Mr  lead to seven points. The *Lillie and Mr-  T.aughlin game also Increased the lo-id of  the president's mo-i by one point, the I.ilh-3  link socuring 12 to llvir cipciienls II.  The meetin gof the Nelson Labor Party  was well attended last evening. It was generally understood that the special committee on municipal politics wculd have a report to submit or. candidates favorable to  iho cause, of labor, lut as the -lommlttoe  desired furtlier lime ln which to ascertain  all of the candidates who would be before  the electors, no names were submitted for  approval. The consideration of the platform of the party was then ic-s.umed. Thc  platform as submitted by the execnllve In  tne first instane; was thai of thc Dominion  Labor Congress, and with a few amendments the same was finally adopted. The  debate upon the several planks In the platform was "spirited, 'and considerable fill"  fcrenoe of ooinion .developed as tn the  lengths to which It was desirable to go,  having In vlesv all the time the effect which ,  the platform asfinally adopted would ha'e  upon tho electors who might be couside'-ed"  as favorably incliner* toward labor though  not aclivjlv Idcrtificc'l with it. As the labor'  party in Nelson has over SO numbers, tho  greater number of whom are on the voters'  lists, it." Uncling on municipal matters will  doubtless receive' considerable attention,  from lv;c politicians.  AT THE HOTELS.  BARTLETT���A. Ferguson, Spokane; J.  itcr.ausrhlin. Cranbrook.  PITA 111���CI.
