 i#��M  xi  ^  ESTABLISHED   1892  TUESDAY  MOKNTOG,  DECEMBER  24   1901  DAILY EDITION  LILLIE DISMISSED  MAYOR FLETCHER DiD NOT  LIKE HIM.  SAYS. THE CHIEF SPOKE DISPAR-  AGINLY OF HIM TO AN INSURANCE MAN.  Chief Lillie is no longer head of the  Nelson firo department. Ho was the  most efficient fireman the city has had.  . His handling of the brigade was good,  ond' he had the rcs-i-octand good will  of all the. members of the. department,  but" he did not suit, mayor Fletcher and  his official head was demanded last  evening. It was not possible even for  the Fletcher wing of the council to. fire  the chief because he was not a favorite  of Ihe mayor, so the charge was set up  that he was not competent. The matter was fought out at a. meeting of the  fire, water and light committee, which  was held early in the afternoon, at  which the mayor attended. Alderman  Irving, chairman of the committee,  championed the causes of the chief, but  he was in a helpless minority, and the  finding cf the committee went against  him." In the full meeting of tho council  the chief had more friends., alderman  Madden and Hamilton being opposed  to firing him without further eaupe boing shown than the displeasure of the  mayor. Aldarman Selous, however, took  r-fug'c behind the report of themajority  of the committoe. which made four  ag-iinst thc chief to three in his favor,  and his dismiss-al was accomplished.'  The reception o�� thc fire, water and  light committee regarding tho suspension of chief Lillie and driver Stutter of  the fire brigade occupied most of the  time o the council at its regular meeting last night. Thc report simply slated  that it approved of thc action of the  mayor in suspending them. As to lhe  question of the efficiency of the fire chief  there was considerable divergence" of  opinion. Thc mayor stated thai his orders to the chief had not been obeyed,,  that tho chief bad. spoken .very "disparagingly of .him to au insurance inspector, had not kept up proper discipline  in the fire brigade and. was not acquainted with the large buildings of the  city as he should be. A number of complaints had been made about the claeJ  to him from time to time and he did noU  cousider that the'ehief had given satis--  faction..  Alderman Paterson supported' the  mayor.. At the meeting bf the committee'  bo had been surprised -at the sta^e of  things that had been shown, alihoufl  aware that mailers had not been g-j-'ng  as they should be for some time. He  considered that a change was absolutely  necessary: for the good of the,,city.  Alderman Gillett .said that the committee had enquired: into the matter  fully and the result of their enquiry .'.���.���.'is  contained   in' the  report.  Alderman Selous said he did not think  the report, of the committee showed  whore they were at. It upheld the  mayor, but did, not recommend any-  -thing:���---He���would���likeH:o-know-something more about the matter, but as the  committee which had been appointed to  look into the matter nad presumably,  fulfilled its duties he would vote with  the majority.  Alderman Hamilton stated that he was  like alderman Selous. He would like to  know more about, the matter. Long experience had shown him that it was not  only right but good'policy that before  a man was discharged that the fullest:  enquiry, should be made into his case,  and in this he would nice to hear from  the other side. The committee had  doubtless looked well into it, but one  member of it was against te report, and  if the. council was to act in the matter  he would like to hear more about it.  Alderman Irving said that at the  meeting of the committee no charges of  any moment had been brought against  the chief. It was his intention to move  that the chief be reinstated. There was  a clique working against the chief, and  a lot had been done with the intention  of injuring him, but. he considered him  a-most efficient man.  Alderman Madden said he had known  the chief for 22 years and-had always  regarded .him as steady and efficient. He  did not think the city could get a better  man.  A vote was taken on which mayor  Fletcher, and aldermen Selous, Gillett,  and Patterson voted in favor of the report being adopted and aldermen Hamilton, Irving and Madden against.  A letter was read from (H. Stutter,  resigning his'position as driver, which  was accepted.  A communication was read frcm secretary Mason of the tramway company  stating that his letter of July 16th, regarding not being able to dispose of  power, was Avritten tinier a misapprehension, and asking to withdraw it.  Another letter was also read , stating  that his company w-re prepared to supply the city with the power that wan  then unused by them. It was decided  on motion that this offer should be accepted, the question of terms, etc.. be-  left in the hands of tho mayor ar.d tho  suporirtendeTit -^f the power plant.  H. R. Cameron on behalf of the committee of the la?t Dominion Day celebration appeared be*��ore the council to  inform them that the committee owed a  balance of Sl.07.45. and asked if the  council would help Ihern out by paying  this amount. After somo discussion it  was decided that this should be done.  Alderman    Silous    introduced    by  law IOC to enable the council  to raise tho sum of $15,000 to  cover .the amount of tlie overdraft for the completion of the business  or the current year, the principle need  be'ng payment of the estimates on the  high school/. This by-law was passed  through throe readings unaiiiir.c uslv.  Chicago's Claim Considered.  CITY OF MEXICO, December 23.���At  today's session of the Panama conference VolneyW. Foster, United States  delegate, proposed that. Chicago be added lo the list of cities having,a claim to  a .branch of the proposed Pan-American  bank. His motion was accepted by 12  votes. Bolivia and Ecuador voted in the  negative and Chili abstained,from voting, but Walker Martinez, one of Uie  Chilian -delegates explained that this  was because his country's delegation had  abstained from1 voting oil tlie main project,and; not from any 'lack of good will  toward Chicago, to which city he;paid  a noteworthy tribute. The project of, a  treaty for protection against anarchists  was read.      DEAL ON THE QUEEN GROUP  Lease and Bond Given.  An important mining deal was put  through on .Saturday which will lead to  the development, of the Queeen group  of claims on Wolf creek, adjoining the  Yelloy/sl.on.e property. The deal on.the  Queen group is one of the results of the  shutdown at the Yellowstone, as the  parties who have secured control of the  Queen projjbse to utilize the plant and  mill of the Yellowstone property in its  development.  In some quarters it is said that an  under '-landing exists between the holders  of the bond on the. Queen and the Yellowstone company, and. that in the event  of the .property developing well that, it  will be turned over to the Yellowstone.  This may or may not be" true, but color  is givon to the ieport by reason of the  circumstance, lan I J. W. Holmes, \vho  negotiated the deal on the Queen group,  was for some time foreman at the Yellowstone.     -. "  The Queen group consists ot four  claims and is owned by John A. Turner,  "William Waldie and Michael Scully of  this cily. Tho principal work performed  upon it consists of a,tunnel which has  been driven for a distance of 130 "feet.  The lodge is a very large one. At one  point it was crosscut for a distance of 32  feet but the second wall was not reached.  "'All sorts of assays have been received,  from the ore, which is free milling. The  highest received by t.he owners of the  property was $68 in gold, but even  higher assays are said to have been received by the parties who have taken  the bond upon it. Sufficient work has  not been - done yet to speak with any  degree of certainty either as to the  values of lhe oro, or its extent, but it  is said to be conservatively estimated  that above the present tunnel, level there  is a good"body of ore which will average  $12 in gold values to the ton.  The^bond secured-by Mr. Holmes is  in thc nature of a lease and bond, the  two running concurrently, from January  2nd, for one year. The lease.conditions  are said to call for tho payment of 15  per cent of the receipts from ore shipments and in the event of. the bond being taken up at the expiry of. the lease  there is to be a payment of $50,000.. The  holders:of the bond will start work on  the day after Chi islmas, and they expect, to have a shipment" of ore through-  the Yellowstone mill inside of sixty  days. They estimate they will have to  stand an expenditure of something like  .?l��000 before/they will be in. shape to get  anything like results out of the Queen.  Their first work will be the construction  of a tramway : for 2000 feet "from; the  Querandumn to the Yellowstone mill,  aud they will also have to build a pipe  line so as to use the Yellowstone air  compressor. From the fact that they  ha.ve secured a lease upon the Yellowstone plnnt''it may he taken that, the  Yellowstone'-* pronerty has closed down  for pood, unless tho development, of the  Queen property proves sufficiently encouraging to warrant a resumntion of  onerations. and the further development  of the Yellowstone in connection with  the working of the Queen.  Queen Alexandra 111.  LONDON, December 23.���The Associated Press hears that the condition of  queen Alexandra is more serious than  has been given* out, and that it causes  some anxiety. Doctors are in constant  attendance upon her majesty. A bulletin issued "at noon today says the queen  is progressing favorably, but that the  extensive arrangements made for  Christmas festivities at Sandringham,  including large shooting parties, have  all been upset "and that their majesties  will spend Christmas at Marlborough  House.* The court circular of London  last night announced that the journey  of the king and queen Alexandra to  Sandringham,. where they were to spend  Christinas, had been postponed in consequence of a slight indisposition of her  majesty. It was then understood that  the state of the queen's health was not  serious.  Tt was announced later m the day that  the queen was suffering from a chill, but  that her condition is not considered to  be dangerous. It is expected her majesty will be able to leave her room in  a few days.  EASTERN CANADIAN TELEGRAMS  i.r~o^r^T T-w.,.,-nhp.r 23.���Colonel Mont-  izambert, D. O. C, is seriously ill.  oriKl'Kr:.

NELSON  GRITS TO  MEET  Bucking the Executive.  A meeting of the JNelson .Liberal Association has been" called for Monday  evening for the purpose of considering  matters in connection with the representation at the provincial Liberal contention which has been called to meet  at Vancouver on January 30th.. The  meeting promises to be a warm one, as  the rank and file of the party in Nelson  resent the high-handed manner in which  the provincial executive has undertaken  to'man out their-course of action. _  " In .discussing, the matter with" a Tribune representative last evening a  prominent local Liberal said it was evident that the members of the provincial  executive considered themselves the  brains of of the entire party in the  province, but they would find they had  made a mistake. So far as the local association was concerned he was convinced that it would, insistupon material changes" in the constitution, of the  convention, or Nelson would not be rep-  lesented. Nelson he said, was not alone  in its objection to the manner in which  the details of the convention had been  arranged, as the associations - at Vancouver and New Westminster were also  outspoken' in their., opposition to the  manner in which the matter had been  framed up. The aim of the executive  appears to have been to hedge the local  ^associalions^ju-oimd-as^mucluas^possib.l.e.  'and it was upon this score that the most  opposition was maintaining itself.  The basis of representation in the  convention as framed by the executive  could have but one effect, the seating  of the Coast machine in the convention.; no matter who the local associations might select to represent them, as  the following will show: (1 That the  convention shall be composed of the officers and executive of the Provincial  Association; (2) the Liberal managing  editors of the provincial newspapers  that support the Dominion government  shall also be eligible, provided that the  names of such editors be sent to the  secretary previous to the date of convention: (3) the Liberal members of the  local legislature; aid (4) the credential  committee shall consist of five members  to be selected by the executive.  Briere Will Lose His Head.  CHARTRES, December 23.���After a  week's trial, which has attracted the attention of the whole of France, Briere,  the farmer of this vicinity who on April  21 murdered four of his daughters, aged  respectively 14,* 11, 5 and -4 years, and  his son 7 years of age, by stabbing them  to death while they were in bed, was  found guilty today and condemned to  be decapitated: The prisoner persisted  in declaring himself innocent and defended himself in the habitual cunning  of the French peasant, but. the circumstantial evidence was overwhelming. A  pathetic incident of the trial occurred  when Brieres surviving little daughter  who, the police declare only escaped the  fate of the other children by not responding to Briere's invitation to go to  see him, went on the witness stand sob-  bingly and protested that her father was  innocent and begged the court to restore him to her.   Marconi's Greeting to Edison.  ST. JOHNS, Newfoundland, December  23.���There were no new developments today in the situation between Marconi  and the Anglo-American Telegraph  Company.

ALL WfflT' WAB  RESOURCES OF DIPLOMACY  EXHAUSTED.  REPORT OF MINISTER WILSON ON  THE SITUATION IS, NOT  HOPEFUL.   ���     .      .  BUENOS AYRES, December 23.���The  patriotic demonstrations growing out of  tho possibility of war with Chili, were  renewed here today. The Chilian minister here, senor Concha Subercaseaux,  has not received .any instructions ^regard lo the course he is to'pursue now  that the Argentine minister^has been recalled from Santiago. -      l  vAn editorial in the Pais says the interruption in the relations between the two  countries, must necessarily be of short  -duration as they are mobilizing then-  reserves and could not afford to support  them under arms were a long period to  elapse before diplomatic .relations were  resumed,'therefore, this state of affairs  cannot be prolonged as otherwise both  countries would be uselessly ruined, in-  which case the arbitration of a friendly  nation would he unable tio remedy the  evil done and would only be able to find  a palliative for it. - It.wasjfpossible some  time ago" to submit-theUvhole matter  to' arbiration, but such a,Lcourse is now  impossible. The decision of.-the arbitrators could not be.given before two  more years ���'have elapsed, and- the  countries should not remain all that time  on a'war footing, therefore a'" radical  solution of the ouestion is necessary.  WASHINGTON, December c23��� Secretary Hay has ,-receiveu- a cablegram  from..United States minister Wilson, at  Santiago de Chili, confirming tlie report  that the resources of diplomacy had been  exhausted in the effort to settle the dispute between Chili, and the Argentina,  and that diplomatic relations had been  broken off .through/the withdrawal from  Chili of the Argentine minister. Touching the proposition emanating from the  Argentine side to "refer the dispute to  Great Britain as an arbitrator, the  Chilan representatives claim that this  was their own original proposition. This  being'the case, it is believed there is a'  '.vay open for-peaceful adjustment of the  trouble.  BUENOS AYRES, December 23.���During a conference between" president  Roas and sir W. A. C. Barrington today,  the president of Argentina explained to  "the British minister the circumstances  whi ch has led to', ��� th'e' present differences  between Argentine and Chili. He laid  special stress upon the efforts made by  Argentina to secure an amicable settlement of the trouble, as well as upon  the craftiness he asserted Chili had employed in order to avoid arriving at such-  a settlement. The British minister will  send -a detailed report to the home  government. The newspapers here assure their ' readers that, several: powers  stand ready to offer their good offices  to mediate the difficulty, but that Argentine does not' consider the moment  has yet arrived either to accept or to refuse such offers. According to the Tri-  buna, senor Concha Hubercaseaux, the  Chilian minister^will-leave=_here���for-  Chili on January 1st, and the secretary  of the Chilian legation, senor Erras-  uriz, .will remain in charge of Chili's interests. , Senor Subercaseaux conferred  for two hours this morning with Dr.  Norberto Quirne Costa, vice-president  of Argentina, and Dr. Amancie Alcorta,  the minister of foreign affairs. After  this conerence senors Costa and Alcorta  went to see president Roca.  The Tiempo says a causus belli would  arise if Chili desjrinjr to render effective  her jurisdiction over the territory  known as Ultima - Esperanza and attempted to drive the Argentina police  from this territory. The patriotic  league will demand that the exportation  of horses and mules must be prohibited  by president Roca. The chamber of  commerce.of Buenos Ayres has publicly  expressed its appreciation of the patriotic attitude manifested by senor Alcorta. the foreign minister.  LONDON, December 23.--A navigation party of Chilian officers, engineers  and sailors has arrived at Ncwcastle-on-  Tyne for the purpose of manning the  warship recently purchased for Chili,  and taking her to Chilian waters. It  was announced early this month that  Chili had purchased at the Elswick  yards, Newcastle-on-Tyne, a protected  cruiser, having a displacement of 41G0  tons. She was described as a sister ship  to the Takusago, of the Japanese  navy. Chili's new cruiser was built to  make 23 knots an hour.  As the foreign ofllce understands the  case, it is not one of boundary between the  two countries, but whether Chili has a  right to build neutral roads in the disputed territory. This commission, of wliich  lord McNaughton is president, has been  sitting in London for nearly two years,  and is now almost ready to go out and  personally inspect the disputed boundary.  For various reasons, however, the departure of the commission has, been dclaved  and it is likely to be delayed for some time  to come. The appeal of Dr. Alcorta had not  yet been officially communicated to the  British foreign ofllce. AVhen this appeal  does reach Downing street, it will meet  with the foregoing answer. Although lord  Lansdowne, the secretary of foreign affairs, holds lhe McNaughton commission  to be powerless, he will intimate the willingness of Great Britain to arbitrate tho  difference between the two countries if  Chili agreed to that proposition. Up to a  late hour tonight neither country concerned  had requested Great Britain to take this  action. Opinion in Downing street is that  while the cause of the dispute is pettv  serious consequences may ensue unless  promnt action is  taken.  BUENOS AYRES. December 23.���Thc  Paris agent advises the Argentine government to accept a direct and immediate arrangement or be prepared for war. The  British minister here, sir W. A.  C. Bar  rington, had a long conference yesterday  evening with president Roca. The Argentine lleet divided into four divisions, will  take part in the extensive maneuvres next  month. The two principal divisions are  ready to put to sea at the��� lirst.signal.  Colonel Padlo ,Riccher, the minister of  - war, has informed president Roca lhat he  has available 600 locomotives and 4000 cars,  and thut he can within 4S hours transport  8000 men, to the frontier. It is .estimated  -that the maintenance of tho army which  will be mobilized by February will involve  an annual expenditure of $05,000,000." About  S0OO men have already signed the rolls of  the Urugayan volunteer legion.  BUENOS AYRES, December 23.���The  chamber of deputies voted 'this-atternoon  to accept the proposal to prohibit the exportation of horses and mules. The chamber will tomorrow discuss ��� an interpellation asking that ssnor Alcorta explain the  present status of the Chilian matter. El  Diario publishes a dispatch from Santiago  de Chill saying it is rumored there that  negotiations will be re-established with  senor Subercaseaux at Buenos Ayres.      x  Predicts Trouble in Cuba.  LEXINGTON,, December 23.���"You will  see an insurrection on the island of Cuba before a year has passed," csald Dr. V. C.  Young, who returned tbnight from: a visit  to his brother, lieutenant Lucian,Young,  .who. has recently, been relieved as captain  of the Havana port but has not yet resigned. Dr. Young says that the; thinking  class of Cubans desire annexation, and  that if the question were submitted to a.  vote it would be carried. As matters stand  he predicts that the Cubans will prove incapable of self-government, and'that their  unrestrained prejudices and the ignorance  and.discontent of a Certain class will soon  result in uprisings. He said that a number  of officers witli whom he talked shared this  view that annexation is the hope -of the  island.    The Danes Protest.  COPENHAGEN, December 23.-A petition  against the sale of the Danish West Indies,  without-; first submitting; the matter to a  plebiscite; has been circulated and will" be  sent to the Rigsdad tonight. Bankers and  business ;men 'are making a last desperate  effort against the sale of the islands.

Before his death he bequeathed his half interestin the Bell to  Dr. Jakes, the present mayor of Greenwood. Wallace and Bell did sufficient  development on the claim to demon1  strale it to be one of t.he most promising of seveial valuable properties in  lhat district. The Bell is now under  option to W. T. Smith, and old-timer  in Boundary Creek, who is endeavoring  lo interest Clark in it.  Six to eight inches of snow fell Saturday morning making good sleighing.  NEW CASUALTIES  , By the Granby Company.  _. GRAND FORKS, December 23.���The  Granby Mining"& Smelting Company has  taken an option for $100,000 on the  Seattle group of five claims, owned by  Robert Clark and situated on the North  Fork of 'Kettle river. Development  work will be started immediately.  Thomas . E. Birbeck, formerly of  Spokane and late of the C. P. R., has  been appointed general freight and passenger agent of the Republic & Grand  Forks - railway, with headquarters at  Grand Forfes. Mr. Birbeck entered the  services of the C.'P. R. in 1883, and occupied various positions including that  of chief clerk in the superintendent's  ofiice at' Moosejaw. Later ho removed  to Spokane ,and more recently returned  to the C. P. R. before entering the employ of the Republic road.  W. H. Reed, United States Chinese inspector at- Victoria, is in the Boundary  on a tour of inspection. Ho is:looking  into the question of the alleged extensive  smuggling of Chinese from various  points in the Kootenays and Boundary  into the United States. He conferred  with the "customs oflicers at Nelson,  Washington^and impressed upon them  the importance of exercising the utmost  vigilance.' Local Chinamen have freely  boasted that they could safely deliver  in Spokane by an underground route on  payment of fifty dollars.. It is said the  gang conducting these illegal operations  is assistedjbv Chinese, who, in order to  deceive the authorities, have established"  a series of market gardens extending  south from  near the boundary.  The Pope's _?et Desire  LONDON, December 23.���The Pall  Mall Gazette today publishes the following dispatch from Rome: "The Vatican  is becoming decidedly more hopeful that  the United States will yield to the pope's  great desire and appoint a diplomatic  representative to the Vatician. So anxious is the pope for the success of this  project that he would be satisfied at  present,with a semi-official representative in the hope that he would be eventually turned into a minister, or ambassador. It seems that Washington is not  unwilling to discuss the matter, and the  Vatician has intimated in return its desire to meet American wishes in Cuba  and the Philippines, and possibly create  another cardinal in the United States.  The pope is somewhat opposed to the  latter step, while cardinal Gibbons lives,  but he may compromise matters by  creating archbishop Ireland or Corri-  gan cardinal of the curia, entitling living in Rome.'  Danes Must Vote.  WASHINGTON, December 23���The  negotiations between the governments  of the Linited States and Denmark, looking to the cession of the Danish West  Indies, i-re dragging, no substantial progress has been made since last week.  The latest suggestion from the Danish  side is that the people of the islands  shall determine by a plebiscite whether  or not they shall be ceded to the United  States. The outcome of such a test  cannot be foretold for the strong feeling of attachment for the mother country on the one hand might be offset by  the great trade advantages expected to  follow on the cession of the islands to  the United States.  Denies All Knowledge of It.  CONSTANTINOPLE, December 23 ���  Replying to the protest by United States  charge d'affaires here, Spencer Eddy,  against the notification issued by the  authorities of Beyrout, Syria, to the effect that, naturalized American citizens  must , renounce their naturalization  within fifteen days under penalty of being expelled from Turkey, the Turkish  foreign minister, Tewfik Pasha, has denied all knowledge of the matter. Ho has  promised to inquire into it and give Mr.  Eddy a definite reply on Monday.  C.P.R. CONSTRUCTION WORK  HEAVY LOSSES INFLICTED,  BY THE BOERS. I  Dickering on the Bell.  GREENWOOD, December 23.���[Special to The Tribune.]���James Harvey,  nephew to Patsey Clark whom he is supposed lo represent, went out on Saturday's train en route to Spokane, after  having examined the Bell mineral claim,  near Beaverdell, on the West Fork of  Kettle river. The Bell was located about  three years ago by J. T. Bell of Greenwood, and the late Alex Wallace.   Tho  In Boundary District.  PHOENIX, December 23.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���A. W. McPhail, of the  contracting firm of Tierney & McPhail,  of Nelson, who has had charge" of the  various trackage impiovements that the  C. P. R. has been making on the Boundary branches this fall and winter, has  finished all the^work in hand and has  l=)t out his force of .men. The last piece  of work to be completed was the loop  on the Phoenix .branch at Hartford  Junction, the'grading of which was finished late last week. This loop, while  but 1600 feet long, is one,of the most  important rieces of work done this year,  as it materially faciliates the operation  of trains'on the Phoenix branch, doing  away as it does with the switchback  that has been used since the road was  built. Inasmuch as the Granby. company alone will in a week or two begin  doubling the ore shipments to a figure  of 1000 tons per day or more, the com-'  ph.-'. ion and use of the loop means no  small saving to the C. P. R. in operating  expenses alone, to say nothing about  the cutting down of the time of running  of both passenger and freight- trains on  the-Phoenix branch.  The C. P.

Of late  these men have rubbed elbows with labor  leaders like Gompers and Mitchell and  Schafer, and they are beginning to realize that there arc two sides to that  great quostion: "The Relations of Capital and Labor."  " According to telegrams from the  Coast, "F. C. Cotton is to become editor  of the Victoria Colonist, which will be  a distinct gain for the Colonist. -But  the announcement is also made that he  will retain the editorship of the Van-  eomr-r News-Advertiser as well. This  is hardly probable. No man can edit  two daily newspapers at the same time,  and do good woik. The Colonist could  easily-lie- made-THe~Toi'onto~"Globe~of  British Columbia. It is the only morning paper in the province that can reach  the Island and lower Mainland the day  of publication. It has a well-equipped  plant for turning out a newspaper, and  it already has a good patronage. Mr.  Cotton is an able writer, and if given a  free hand will make the Colonist a  great newspaper, not from the sensational newsgatheriug point of view, but  as an exponent of public opinion. There  is no room in Vancouver for three daily  papers, and it is not at all unlikely that  the Province will be allowed to remain  in the evening field, and the other two  will be consolidated aud run as a morning paper.   '  _���   ' ���  The Nelson Miner and its namesake  at Rossland are the only newspapers in  the whole of Kootenay that are supporting the candidacy of E. V."Bodwsll for  the vacant seat in the legislative assembly for Victoria. While several of  the newspapers in the district oppose  the Dunsmuir government, only the two  Miners can stand. Bodwell's announced  policy of giving away the province to secure the building of railways. The Revelstoke Mail, the Revelstoke Herald, the  Golden Era, the Canterbury Outlook, the  Fort Steele Prospector, the Fernie Free  Press, the Cranbrook Herald, the Moyie  Leader, the Kaslo Kootenalan, the Sandon Paystreak, the Sandon Mining Review, the Ferguson Eagle, the Trout  Lake Topic, the New Denver Ledge, the  Slocan City Drill, thc Rossland World,  and The Tribune are all cf one opinion  on the question of subsidies to railways.  Their platform is: "Not one dollar in  " money or an acre of land in the way  " of subsidies to railways without a fair  " return in the way of interest on the  " money subsidy or in the way of. a per-  " centage of the gross earnings when  " land is granted." These seventeen papers may not represent the views of the  people of Kootenay any more than does  the Nelson Miner and its Rossland  namesake; but it is safe to assume the  j papers named above are not all purchas-  TUESDAY..

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, December 23.  ���General interest has been aroused in  the medical profession by reports of a  discovery of unusual importance of the  bacteriological labratory of the university of Michigan. It is stated that experiments by Dr. Frederick Novy, and  professor Paul C. Freer, a.chemist, have  produced what is believed to be an antiseptic for such intestinal diseases as  cholera, typhoid fever and dysentery.  The preparations have been tried with  success in experiments on small animals, previously inoculated with intestinal diseases, and during tho past week  five medical students have been undergoing a course of experiments with the  preparation, lt is stated that they were  restricted to a diet of sterilized milk  and that repeated analysis during the  period showed the utter destruction of  the intestinal poisons. Dr. Novy and  his colleagues positively decline to discuss the reported discovery or their experiments for publication.  Amateur Skating Fixture.

As some sort of  forecast of the national event, tharc will  be a number of important races on Verona lake on Christmas day, these will  serve as a sort of sharpening up process  for next month, and will attract such  flyers as Wray, Mulligan, Gibbs, Swan,  Savoy, Mangus, Jones, Sinnirud, Wood,  Kearney, McDonald, and many others.

New Zealand's compulsory arbitration  law has been reported by the press in general as having proved a complete failure.  _The_Journn 1 _is_in possession of a .letter  written by one of the foremost labor leaders tn New Zealand, in which he refutes  the statement above mentioned, and explains the situation as it really exists.  ������With regard to the success or otherwise  of the working of our conciliation and arbitration law it is a difficult matter to give a  straight-out answer; but the report which  has gained currency, that compulsory arbitration has proved a complote failure, is  quite incorrect, and is the result of at-  iprnpts- on the part of employers to so discredit the conciliation ana arbitration legislation as to bring about its repeal. That  there are defects both in the act and its  administration is admitted; but when I say  that all tho clamor against this legislation  emanates from the employers' side, it will  nt once be evident that thc opaiation of the  law so far has not been altogether to their  liMng, and, consequently, from their standpoint,  a complete  failure.  "There may have also boen somo little  discontent on tho .part of some workers  who hare failed to obtain as good torms  ur thev expected on their first appeal to  the court, but In the majority of cases the  workers have benefited under the awards  given. In some cases, some workers pre-,  viously unorganized, and working any  hours for what wags they could get, made  the mistake of supposing that by forming  a union under the act they would immedi-  atelv step into.,tho front rank of wage-,  earners, and, expecting too much all at  once, were disappointed with their award.  "The leaving of disputes to non-experts  is considered by many to be a defect in  our present system, but was originally  adopted in order to orevent the possibility  of employers 'marking',the men who might  be chosen to adjudicate in any particular  trade dispute.' However, a * provision has  just been inserted in the act giving the  option to parties to appoint special conciliators if they so desire, but we have not yet  had an opportunity of testing the new provision."  The Journal's correspondent states that  strikes are practically unknown in New  Zealand, and that greater progress has  been mado by labor, under tho arbitration  act, than during the period the strike  method of settling disputes was in vogue.  It would appear from the foregoing interesting information that conditions in New  Zealand, so far as the question of arbitration is concerned, have been badly misstated bv our news dispensers���the press.���  Typographical Journal.  The Chinese Question.  The Boston Sunday Globe, in an editorial,  analyzes the Chinese situation a*.* follows:  "There is an obvious and profound difference between the transatlantic and transpacific immigrants. The former come as  homeseekers and home-makers, surrendering their nationality, accepting ours, and in  every way merging themselves with the  great body of Americans. The Chinese, on  the other hand, do not come with any such  purpose, because ��� and this is the primal  test of their intentions���they leave their  women behind them. However long they  stav among us, their homes remain in  fhlna, and thither their treasure Invari-  ablv goes when they get it.  "They can no more make Americans of  themselves than wo could make Chinamen  of ourselves. This indisputable fact was  recognized long before any exclusion net,  when, in the very beginning of our rela-  HEAD  OFFICK. TORONTO, ONTARIO.  Branches in Northwest Territories.

"No, the Chinese have been molded and  cast, in a" civilization antipodal to ours, and  they could not if they would, and would  not if thoy could, transform themselves.  Tlio European immigrant is our cousin,  descended from the same parent stock as  ourselves; our customs, laws and religions  are similar.  "Between the Orient and the Occident  there is a veil which no man can penetrate.  "The gulf between the Chinese and Eu-  ropean immigrants "is as wide industrially  .as it is socially.  "Thp laborer from Europe casts 'in his  lot with us and quickly rises to our scale  of living and wages. Moreover, he rears a  family and reinforces alike the ranks of  our consumers and producers. What he  earns is added to and not substraetcd from  the wealth of the nation.  "The Chinese, on the other -hand, bring  here a lower standard of comfort than any  other immigrants, and isolated as they are,  by their loyalty to their own civilization  and tlieir rigid observance of their own  customs, they do not acquire a taste for  the American style of living. In every competition between them and the Caucasians,  therefore, wages instantly show a tendency  to descend to the lower level of their ne  cessities. This rule applies to unskilled  labor rather than laundry mon, cooks and  thc like, and has been verified when the  Chinese has entered upon railrcad construction or mining work,"  ���m  to  to  to  to  to  to  NOTICE  To the Public and Union Men:  The Trades and Labor Council of the City of  Nelson have declared all Hotels, Restaurants  and Saloons employing Chinese in or around the  premises unfair to organized labor.

The court of revision and appeal for the  Nelson assessment district will be held  in the court house on Saturday, January  llth. John A. Turner, juuge ol' mc court ot  revision and appeal,  will preside.  Dr. Doherty, on behalf of the patients  and start' of the Kootenay Lake General  hospital desires to thank the members of  the Nelson Miners' Union for their very  liberal Christmas donations to the hospital.  Jacob Dover has consented to donate  seven trophies to be contested for by the  members of the Nelson hockey team and  one of tho outside teams. The date for the  match can be arranged to suit the convenience of the local team.  pie botli the liockev and lacrosse organizations. II Is therefore likely that the refusal of the eastern organization to reinstate the local men will be more generally regretted by the local admirers of lacrosse and hockey than by the men classed  as professionals.  _-^,-S,^'^,^,^''^''^''^,^''4&,^'^''^''^'^,^-^,^i'^',a''a-'a',a':a*'^,a',a*1^*'-^'^^  Smith Curtis arrived in Nelson last evening from the Boundary.

Fitzgerald was  saddled with a rather bad reputation, as  three ^previous- convictions were brought  up against him. He was sentenced to six  months' imprisonment, to date from his  arrest. W. A. Galliher appeared for the  prisoner and did what he could for a reduction of sentence. Fitzgerald in the lirst  instance was charged with attempted murder. He assaulted Powell wilh an axe, but  the latter's wounds.were not so serious as-  was at first feared and the charge was reduced from attempted murder to unlawful  wounding.   -,;*. :'  - The case of McCailum vs. Sherry was up  before judge Forin yesterday.
