 ESABLISHED  1892  WEDNESDAY  MORNING,  JANUARY  15,   1902  DAILY EDITION  . H. PHILLIP  THE AMERICAN CORN KING  BREAKS AGAIN.  A DROP OF THREE AND A HALF  CENTS IN PRICE OF RYE  THE CAUSE.  CHICAGO, January 14.���A notice was  posted at the opening of the board of  trade today calling for the closing of all  open deals with George H. Phillips, the  former corn king. A heavy call for extra margins is said to have been the  cause of the posting of the notice. The  call was made yesterday afternoon, and  Phillips and staff worked all night over  the firm's books. The trouble is said to  have been due to a 3 1-2 cent break in  rye yesterday. Phillips is credited with  holding a line of 1,500,000 bushels of this  cereal, mostly in May options. The  break yesterday was caused by a sale of  50,000 bushels. Phillips is said to have  on his books also from four to five million bushels of May wneat and about  three million bushels of May corn. It  was said that the elevator interests  would take over Phillips' entire line of  rye at a figure close to the market.  Mr. Phillips could not be seen following the announcement of the closing of  his deals, but members of Iiis staff state  that he was still in good financial condition. Hulbert, Phillips' office manager, declared that it was the suddenness  of the call.for the extra 10 per cent mar:  gins which had embarrassed Mr. Phillips. He stated that Mr. Phillips had  traded but little on his own account, the  grain for the most part belonging to  customers.  Mr.. Phillips later gave out a statement in part as follows: "The amount  involved in my trouble of today is about  $60,000. My customers had their trades  well margined and if closed out toaay  would bring a fair price. I can meet  all my obligations. I was "long" about  1,200,000,rye, 5,000,000 wheat and 6.000,-  000' corn and oats. Saturday a member  of the board interested in breaking the  rye market sent notices calling for an  extra 10 per cent on rye. This naturally  caused selling orders Monday, and the  representative of the member mentioned finding the market bare of orders,  forced the market down three cents. A  decline of one cent in wheat, coupled  with rumors reflecting, on my strength,  resulted in unusually heavy calls for  margin. I was for the moment unprepared and the only alternative left was  to close out. I have no excuses to offer  and no complaints to make.  2nd, while in a field driving some stray  cattle, Briggs, who was also there, accused him of frightening the cattle. He  said that they called each other names  and Briggs threatened to shoot the  whole Jones family. Later Briggs appeared at the Jones home with a revolver, and when Mrs. Briggs went to the  door Briggs shot her, following her into  the kitchen and fired two more shots  into the prostrate woman. Annie Jones,  aged 14 years, corroborated her brother's  testimony. The trial will last some days  and interest in it is keen because no  reason is known for Briggs' act, except  dispute between neighbors over right of  way in a road.  After Thirty-four Years' Service.  SAN FRANCISCO, January, 14.���R.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, January 14.���  The Bessemer Iron Association yesterday closed a deal to sell 100,000 tons of  Bessemero standard iron to the United  States Steel Corporation, to be delivered  before July 1st, at $15.75 a ton, the sami  price at which the last lot was sold.  TO BE LIONIZED BY THE  AMERICANS.  INSURGENTS SURRENDERED  Fife Will Build This Boat.  LONDON, January 14.���William Fife  of Fairlie on the Clyde, is to build sir  Thomas Lipton's next challenger for the  America's cup. At a conference just  held between sir Thomas Lipton and his  advisors, definite arrangements were  ���made for the construction of the Shamrock III, and an order for the new yacht  was given Jo and accepted by Fife. In  "view~o- 'th^pToblability^bf arbig'revivar  of British yachting, and the fact that  designing and superintending a cup challenger necessitates constant work for at  least a year, Mr. Fife was somewhat dis-  iclined to accept the big job, but sir  Thomas found means of overcoming his  objections. George L. Watson has  promised to assist Mr. Fife in every way  by handing over to him the details of  the construction of tho Shamrock II,  and all the calculations and details of  the tank experiments made at the Denny's yard. With these, and the experience gained with the Shamrock I, Mr.  Fife starts with a distinct advantage  over his flrst efforts. In a recent conversation with a friend, Mr. Watson indicated that he still believed tho Columbia's victory over the Shamrock II was  largely due to luck and that he believed  the Shamrock II was quite Columbia's  equal. Mr. Fife is already collecting  material and will commence designing  the Shamrock III as soon as the boats  now on hand for the next British yachting season are fairly started, which  probably will be at the end of this  month. The Shamrock III is to be ready  early in the spring of 1903.  Seven Still in the Ring  PHILADELPHIA, January 14.���The  second day's riding in the six day bicycle race came to a close at 10:30 tonight  with seven teams still In the contest.  Albert Champion, the Frenchman, went.  against the world's single motor record  twice today. In the afternoon it was  announced he had lowered the record  one-fifth of a second.

'  S^ot His NeiRhbor's Wife.  NEWPORT, New Hampshire, January  14.���George H. Briggs, an elderly prosperous farmer of Langdon, was placed  on trial today, charged with the murder  of Mrs. Florence Jones, a neighbor.

WASHINGTON, January 14.���The war  department was advised late this afternoon of an important surrender whicli  occurred yesterday at Taal, Batangas,  Philippine islands. The surrender included 1 colonel, 3 lieutenant-colonels,  1 major, 5 captains, 12 lieutenants, 245  men and 243 rifles. Marisigan, the colonel, was a leader of importance under  the insurgent general Malvalar, operating in the western part of Batangas.  That section is reported now to be practically clear of hostile forces. It is stated that the surrender was unconditional  and due directly to the excellent service  of the American troops. The loyal natives, it is added, believe this surrender  will influence hostile bands in other sections of Batangas to surrender. Those  prisoners, not charged with serious  crimes have been released.  WASHINGTON, January 14.���For the  first time this session the Philippine  question was touched in the senate. The  interest taken in it indicates that it will  occupy the attention of tlie upper branch  of congress for some time when the  tariff bill is reported. The Philippines  were the subject of an address by Mr.  Hoar of Massachusetts, who spoke on his  resolutions, introduced yesterday, providing for the, appointment of a committee to investigate the administration  of those islands. Mr. Hoar spoke at  some length regarding the unreliability  of statements which have been made,  from time to time, regarding the situation in the Philippines and the causes  which led to the outbreak. He urged  that there should be a plan whereby any  senator in his official capacity could go  and ask for two witnesses to prove the  correctness or incorrectness of any question upon which light is desired.  Mr. Lodge, Mr. Hoar's colleague, said  he regarded the resolution as a reflection  on the Philippine commission of which  he was chairman and the necessity for  the latter would cease with this resolu-  iton to be adopted. His committee, he  said, was perfectly able to handle any  investigation which might be conducted.  Mr. Carmack, Democrat, agreed with  him. The discussion was leading rapidly to an opening up of the whole Philippine question, when it was agreed that  the resolution should go over until tomorrow.  Mr. Mason made a speech in favor of  reciprocity with Cuba and discussed the  PJLQtectiye^policy general!y.

Tho Filipinos who surrendered, included 3 colonels, 1 major,  5 captains, and 12 lieutenants. They  gave up 21!) rifles and ono cannon. All  the insurgents who surrendered did so  uncondit.ionallly. General Bell ordered  the men to, be released. Colonel Marisigan says ho can prevail on many more  men .to surrender during the next few  days .and also obtain possession of a  number of additional rifles. General  Bell says the surrender satisfies for the  present, all the eastern part of Batangas.  Cole Set at Liberty.  WASHINGTON, January 14.���The police tonight discharged from custody the  colored man Richard Cole, who was arrested yesterday because of the belief  that he might know something in connection with the mysterious assault  upon Mrs. Ida Gilbert Dennis, the dressmaker, last month. His arrest was  based on the statement of a lesident of  the locality of the Dennis house, who  saw a man in the'immediate vicinity on  the night of the assault, but investigation failed to show Cole was the person  he had seen.

Olsen was picked up  by Arthur Valdez, a fisherman, just beyond the Kelp, off Goleta. He was more  dead than alive, but was able to tell of  the wreck of his boat, the Belle, a  staunch gasoline schooner, which he and  Wallace used in cruising about the fishing grounds. Olsen and Wallace were  residents of San Pedro and left, that port  seventeen days ago. While cruising several miles south of Santa Cruz island a  heavy sea rose and capsized their craft.  Clinging to the capsized boat; without  food or water, they drifted, suffering  great tortures. On the 14th day Walr  lace's strength gave out and crazed and  starving, he slid off the boat and disappeared under the waters. For three  days longer Olsen held on and was finally rescued, half dead, by Valdez. It  is thought that he will recover from the  result of his terrible experience.  A Jap Murdered.  VANCOUVER, January 14'���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The steamer Tees arrived this evening from northern British Columbian ports after what captain  Hughes says was the roughest trip on  record. The steamer was three days  late in completing her trip there, having met. with a succession of gales.  News was brought of the shooting of a  Japanese carpenter who had been working with Indians on the construction of  the new Metlakatla mission school. The  natives had been atending a meeting at  Metlakatla and the Japanese had gone  out fishing. Several rifle shots were  heard during the afternoon, but no attention was paid at the time. Next day  a Japanese was found dead on the beach  with three bullet holes through his body.  Five Indians from Queen Charlotte islands had suddenly departed in canoes,  and they are supposed to be the murderers.       ^^_   Russia's Financial Equilibrium.  ST.

"Our  monetary system," says the minister,  "leaves nothing to be desired, and our  railroads continue to develop under  good conditions. In my report to the  czar on the budget of 1S93 I expressed  firm confidence in the productive power  of Russia. The experience of the last  few years, have justified this confidence  and today, in submitting to our sovereign my tenth budget report, I have still  firmer faith in the rapidity of the progress our country will make, protected  as it is, by his majesty's unalterable  tone of peace and guided by his majesty's imperial solicitude.  Republicans to Fete the Monarchy.  CHICAGO, January 14.���The plans to  have prince Henry visit Chicago, when  he comes to the United States to attend  the launching of the yacht of kaiser  William of Germany, took definite shape  last night when the reception committee  of the Germania Mannerchoir, decided  to extend the prince a formal invitation  to come to Chicago. The plan includes  an elaborate reception to be given him  by the club.   Steamship Stranded.

AMERICA APPOINTS REPRESENTATIVES TO ATTEND THE  CORONATION.  WASHINGTON, January 14.���The approaching visit of prince Henry of Prussia to attend the launching of the kaiser's  jacht, now building in New York, also was  considered at today's cabinet meeting. No  definite plans for- the prince's entertainment as yel have-been arranged, but it is  the purpose of the president and the secretary of state to receive and entertain the  prince in any way to do the highest honor  to the kaiser and the German people.  Several notable functions are certain to  be arranged, including a state dinner at the  White House. Cable advices received here  indicate that prince Henry will .arrive off  Now York about February ISth. While Dr.  Von Hollenbcn, the" German ambassador,  has not been advised fully as to the details'  of prince Henry's visit to this country, it  is the opinion of the embassy officials that  the stay of the royal visitor will not extend  over a fortnight.  The voyage of iho imperial yacht Hohenzollern will be so timed that the vessel  will arrive oft' New York in season to join  the steamer which will bring prince Henry  so that he may board the yacht and proceed on to bo met by the reception fleet of  naval vessels and steamers, which will escort the Hohenzollern into New York harbor. The president is showing a great deal  of interest in the arrangements.for prince  Henry's reception, and lie himself called  . the matter up in cabinet today. It was too  early to map out any definite, program for  the reception, but to secretary Hay and  secretary Long were left the arrangements  of details. It is probable when the Hohenzollern takes prince Henry off from tho  liner she will be escorted from the lower  t.-ay down to Sandy Hook by admiral  Dewey's old flagship, the Oiympia or the  San Francisco, which has been the flagship of the European squadron. Both of  these fine ships have been almost completely reconstructed In the Boston and New  York navy yard. It has been suggested  that the captain of" either of the ships  would not have sufficient rank to meet th>s  German admiral, se2i-��tary Long has taken  under consideration the propriety of appointing rear admlra' Rohjey D.. F.vanp as  a special representative for this occasion.  He is known personally to the prince, who  was in command at the great naval demonstration at Kiel, where admiral Evans represented- the United States navy, on the  cruiser New York.  BERLIN, January 14.���It has been announced that prince Henry of Prussia, on  his return from the United States, will be  deputed to represent emepror William at  the coronation of king Edward.  WASHINGTON, January 14���The cabinet  meeting today was devoted to the consideration of the appointment of representatives to this country at the coronation of  King Edward V1T. At its conclusion tho  following designations were announced by  tho secretary of state who are to be s_ ec-  ial representatives of tne United States  government at the coronation of kins Edward: Special ambassador, Whitetaw Reid  of New York; representative of the United  States army, general Charles H. AVilson of  Delaware; representative of the United  States navy, captain Charles 15. Clark,  commander of tho battleship Oregon during the Spanish war. and now governor of  thenaval home at Philadelphia. There are  to be three secretaries as follows: J. P.  Morgan, Jr., son of J. Pierpont Morgan of  New York: Edmund Lincoln Baylies, a barrister of New York, and William Wetmore,  son of senator AV'etmore of Rhode Tsland.  Mr. Choate, our ambassador to London,  who sailed today for his post will not,  strictly speaking, have any official conncc-  tion with the special coronation _emba.ssy^  This was the fact during the golden jubilee,  when ambassador Hay was not even ex-  offlcio a member of the special representation of the United States government. As  a matter of fact, however, the United  States ambassador is a very important figure in the ceremonies and is, In almost  every instance, attendant upon all the  functions in which the special representatives participate. General J. IT. AVilson had  a conference with, secretary Root at Ihe  war department this afternoon and formally accepted the appointment as military  member of the special embassy to London at the coronation of king Edward.

Coast Shipping Fatalities.  VICTORIA, January 14.���Some anxiety is  felt for the steamer Cottage City, which Is  overdue from Skneway.  The steamer Nell which has arrived from  Port Simpson, brought no news of tho missing members of the Ill-fated collier Bristol  and now little hope is held out for them.  Tho injuries to the Santa* Clara, caused  by her going on Trial island on Christmas  night, are more serious than at first  thought and sho will have to remain on the  marine ways for a month at least. Her  hull was not punctured but her limbers  were badly damaged.  SHATTERS A GOD THAT WAS  TRADES AND LABOR COUNCIL  Make a Mistake,  TORONTO. January 14.���Mr, Gooderham  is not connected with the Manufacturers'  Life Insurance Company. The Vancouver  Trades and Labor Council were in error,  it seem.:, in boycotting the Manufacturers'  Life Insurance Company in conjunction  with the Gooderham interests in British  Columbia. The mistake was caused by the  fact that Mr. Gooderham was for a number of years prosident of the company.  About two years ago, however, he disposed  of his interest in the Manufacturers' Life,  and when the company was amalgamated  with the Temperance and General Life last  year, the Hon. G. AV. koss was elected  president of the united companies. At present Mr. Gooderham is not on the board,  nor is he or any other ot the Gooderham  syndicate in any way connected with the  company.  There is no doubt, of course, in the face  of these facts, the union will withdraw tho  name of the Manufacturers' Lire from the  boycott, and remedy the harm done as far  as possible.  Lord Strathcona at Dooell's Funeral.  FOLKESTONE, January 14���Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal, tho high commissioner for Canada, and Joseph G.

Canon Woodhou.se officiated at the  services, which were attended by a largo  number of aersons.  Kitchener's Weekly Report.  LONDON, January 14.���Perhaps the most  important point in lord Kitchener's weekly report, dated Johannesburg, Monday,  January 13th, is the omission of all mention  ot general Dewet, from which it is deducted' that the British commander is more  than hopeful of effective results from his  present effort to surround Dewet. The British commander-in-chief reports  that .since  Director Frecheville's Report.  .In his report to the shareholders of  the Le Roi company, managing director  R. J. Frecheville makes a most vigorous  attack upon the way in Avhich the property Avas operated by general manager  Bernard McDonald and smelter manager Bela Kadish. His report, which is  a lengthy one, has just been submitted  to the stockholders. -In it he says in  part:  "My investigation shows that > there  has been very great extravagance and  loose management resulting in unwarranted expenditures and high working  costs; also that under proper control  your property Avould htive paid' dividends  from the start."  Commenting on the cost of producing  Le Roi ores, Mr. Frecheville says that  great reductions can be made in mining  and smelting costs, much extraneous expense can be cut off and in future total  costs Avill not exceed $. per ton, which  would leave a profit of ?2.75 of the grade  ore now in reserve. This estimate of profit  Avas based on copper at 10 1-2 cents. He  gaAre a lengthy list of machinery purchased for the mine for Avhich he says  no use will be had, and Avinds up this  paragraph with these remarks: "Evidently the appetite for purchasing machinery grows-with feeding."  Mr. Frecheville is specially severe in  his strictures on the smelter management under tho old regime. He says in  part: "The metallurgical Avork has been  very bad. By using strong blast and very  high percentage of coke the ore has been  smelted, but at hoAV much extra cost  and at how great loss in flue dust Avill  never be known. Amongst the purchased ores smelted were U23.S tons of concentrates from the Baker City sampling  Avorks, assaying 3.27 ounces of gold per  ton. These were often charged into the  furnaces raw without briquetting, the result being that a large percentage of  this valuable material has been carried  by strong blast through the condensing  chambers, up the stack and scattered  over the surronding country.  "It appears that as Bela Kadish, late  manager of the smelter, is owner of the  Baker City sampling works, he was thus  in the position of buyer and seller at the  same time, and the more concentrates  that Avere used the better it was for his  business. The new manager, Oscar Szon-  tagh, has already made many great, improvements. He purchased no more con-  TOntratcsT^aW"^^  them to make matte of grade in gold  required by your contract with the American Smelting & Refining Comapny.  "He has completely done away Avith  granulation- and calcination of Ioav  grade matte; this will- very largely reduce the smelting cost, and to a great  extent obviate mechanical loss in handling and loss in flue dust.  "Tho double decked calcining furnace,  recently erected by Mr. Kadish at a cost,  including a building to cover it of $27.-  355, will never be used on your ores. The  consumption or coke has also been reduced, and with all this there has been  no reduction in the quantity of ore put  through the furnaces, n��, with four running, over 800 tons of ore per day are  now being smelted.  "The coke used costs ?I0 per ton.  When the Great Northern Railway Company has completed its branch into tlu>  Ci'oav's Nest coal fields, it is probable  that you will be able to get coke at about  $8 per ton. As about 200 tons per day  arc used this means a notable saving."  Tho strike question is dealt with., as  follows:  "I am of the opinion that the strike  Avas mainly brought about by the injudicious and arbitrary action of Bela  Kadish. The strike at Rossland is sympathetic. The demand for an increase  of 50 cents per day in muckers' wages is  simplv a pretext. More muckers than  are wanted can be got for $2.50 per day.  which noAV is and always has been the  rate of pay for this class of labor at  Rossland. As a matter of fact the strike  was, according to the by-laws or the  union itself, illegally called. Tbe battle  having once begun has to be fought out  if you wish to have control over the  working of your property.  "Any concef-'^i. no matter how  slight, to the C.->..-���: :-.i or tbe union,  would be hailed as a victory and would  be followed by still further demands.  The rank and file of Rossland Minors'  Union would now gladly call off Mm  strike, but thoy are powerless to do so.  as tljov are under the control of profos-  sionaf agitators. Avho in turn arc ruled  by the orders of the Western Federation  of Minors at Denver."  Extradited for Embezzlement.

MEGKEM'S LATESTFORTUNE  Made in Texas Oil.  The following is an excerpt from a  description of the oil fields of Beaumont,  Texas, published recently in >a special  edition of the National Oil Reporter,  NeAV York. It relates to an enterprising individual Avho for a time flourished  in the district immediately south of the  boundary line near Rock Creek, and Avho  Avas Avell known throughout the Boundary district:  "Most of the instances in which fortunes were made suddenly after the  Lucas gusher came in represented either  sheer luck or combinations of circumstances in which results were achieved  by various light efforts on the part of  the beneficiaries. But occasionally during those first feverish days a' man  emerged from the crowd whose methods  carried the hall marks of financial genius. George B. Mechem was one of  those. Two days after the Lucas came  in Mr. Mechem was on the ground. The  people of Beaumont were still dazed by  the discovery. They understood, in a  general way,..that a groat fortune was  to be had for the grasping; but most of  them were not sure just how to grasp it.  Those Avho were fortunate enough to  hold land on Spindle Top feared to put  a' pricu on tile property; thosu who  Avanted land there did liot dare to bid  the prices which the proximity to  gusher land  would seem  to Avarrant..  "Mr. Mechem drove from the Crosby  house, Beaumont, to Spindle Top; he  saw the Lucas, talked with everyone  who might know something about the  situation and then returned. The next  morning he asked the owners of a small  tract of land on Spindle Top to .make  him a price. Their answer was that because of the changed conditions they did  not know Avhat their property was fairly  worth. Mr. Mechem offered $10,000 for  two acres. Ten days before land in the  vicinity had been selling for $5 and $10  an acre. The astonished owners accepted the offer. This is said to have been  the first sale after'oil was round.  "In New Orleans, next day, Mi-. Mechem had to assure a local banker that  he had not suddenly gone mad when he  asked $100,000 for one of his two acres.

TWO BANKS AND CLUB HOUSES  IN   NEW  HAMPSHIRE  DESTROYED.  MANCHESTER,  New Hampshire, January 11.���The destruction of the Kennard, a  granite structure, considered to be the finest omce building in New England north  of Boston, proved to be the worst'fire ln  many  years,   the loss being a round  half  million dollars.  Besides the  Kennard,  tho ���  Smythe block was practically ruined and  considerable damage was doneto the homo  of the Deryfield club. In the Smythe block  were the Park theater, occupied tonight by  J. "_. Little's dramatic company, a printer,  and two banks. The Are started"at 9.o'clock  in the clothing store of Allen & Kimball.  The flrst  warning  that the   occupants  of  tlie Kennard had was' an explosion, which,  resounded through the city like a cannonading. At the time the explosion occurred  the board of trade was-in session  and a  rush was made for tlie exits. The heat was  so intense that the firemen had.to fall back  and give their attention  to  the surrounding buildings. Despite all they could do tho  flames jumped across the street and set fire  to the Smythe block. AA'hen one of the rear  walls of the Kennard fell, the roof of the  extension of the Deryfield club was ignited  but  the firemen  saved  the main building.  Much other adjoining property was considerably damaged by both Are and water. Tho  cause of the fire is believed to have been  located in the new electrical connctions of  Allen & Kimball's store. The chief.figures  of loss are given as follows, Kennard $250,-  000.   tenants  $200,000,   Smythe'-.- block  $20,000,  Deryfield club $10,000, other property $10,000.

This Mr. Fletcher.has  failed to do. After being given a year's  trial as mayor, Mr. Fletcher should be  able to show what he has done that is  an improvement over what was done by  his predecessors in office. Mr. Fletcher  has not.made any such showing. |The  people, therefore, will tell him to stand  aside on Thursday in order to give.an-*"  other man a chance. That other man  is John A. Kirkpatriek, who believes  that municipal-ownership of public utilities will make Nelson a manufacturing  center, and whose business training and  success Avill give the city as good results  asthey^haye given him as an individual.

Nelson was incorporated as a city in  April, 1807, four years aud nine months  ago. In that short time, Frank Fletcher  has been a candidate for office seven  times.   This is a statement of fact.  to  9\  to  to  9\  to  to  WE WILL CONTINUE  DURING   THIS  On Saturday next,..pub-cribera  whose Tribunes are d-livered -by  carrier will, be expected to pay  the carxier TWENTY CENTS, the  subscription, price for the current  week.  The other day The Tribune asked candidate Fletcher a dozen plain questions.  So far he has not answered any of them.  He tells his friends, so it is said, that  the questions were blackguardly.   It is  true, everything that  appears  in  The  Tribune is blackguardly when the views  expressed are contrary to the views of  Mr. Fletcher and his supporters.   There  is one question the people of Nelson; are  asking that candidate -Fletcher should  be compelled to answer before election  day, and that is:   "Why has not a liiian-  cial statement, for the year 1901, duly  certified to by the auditor, been laid�� before the people?"   They want to know  ^hbwrhuchTnoney-wasraised'duringTthe1  . year and what became of it.   They also  want to know how much the city is in  debt to the Bank of Montreal and how  much is owing on outstanding accounts.  Surely, the   people   are   entitled   to an  answer.   According to the report of the  city engineer, $13,548 were expended on  the streets and ?6125 on sidewalks, close  on to $20,000   in  all.   People  say  that  there is little permanent work to show  for   such   a   large   expenditure.    Apart  from widening the wharf and grading  the west end of Baker street, no other  good work seems to have been done.  Standing-Candidate Fletcher takes; objection to The Tribune because it states  that John A. Kirkpatriek is an honest  man. He says that such a statement is  a reflection on him (Fletcher); that it  means that he (Fletcher) is not an honest man. Mr. Fletcher is too sensitive.  The Tribune has repeatedly given him  credit for being an honest horse trader,  if not a successful one.  Alderman Gillett of the East ward,  who is a candidate for re-election, stated  yesterday that the Miner's report of his  speech at the opera" house meeting was  not a fair one. The question might be  asked: Did the; Miner ever make a fair  statement on any question during a civic  election? The gang who use the Miner  for a mouthpiece do not know the meaning of the word "fair."

EIRKPATBIGK  Candidate for Mayor  and  Alderman-Gillette is no longer in good  standing with the Fietcherites. iHis  candid statement at the opera house on  Monday night was not at all to their  liking. The Fietcherites voted almost  to a man for the West Kootenay Power  & Light Company by-law, which alderr  man Gillett now unhesitatingly states  would have been a bad bargain for-the  city had it carried. Men who deliberately plan bad bargains are not safe  men to trust in office.  I  Candidate Fletcher is reported as saying that   the   city   rock   crusher,   and  which  he is  reported   as   saying   cost  $2000 was- loaned by his predecessors in  oilico, and that the city never received  a   cent  for   its   use.   Surely   candidate  Fletcher, unreliable and reckless as he  often is in making statements, was not  so foolish as to make such a statement.  The rock crusher cost in the neighborhood of ��-00.    Late in the fall of 1900  it was loaned to a Mr. Gunn, who had a  contract to put in the piers of the C. P.  ft. bridge across the Columbia river. It  was to be  returned   in   good   condition  within a month.    It was returned, and  the auditor's report of the city's receipts  for the first nine   months   of the   year  1901 show that ?150 were paid for its  use.   Reckless statements should not be  made by a man aspiring to the highest  office in the gift of the people of Nelson.  Alderman     Selous     and     alderman  Hamilton and     alderman Paterson  say they are seeking re-election  as aldermen simply because their  acts as aldermen have been criticized, and not because they want to be  aldermen. Do these three genial gentlemen believe themselves perfect, so perfect that they can serve a term as aldermen without making mistakes?  Alderman Gillett admits that he has  made mistakes as an alderman, and  wants the people to give him another  chance���to make more mistakes. Alderman Gillett is at least straightforward  and manly in declaring that he is a candidate because he likes to be an alderman.

Luck Changes.  Once there was a staid Business Man  who was hooked up with a hoop-la  Spender. It Avas often remarked that  Hiram's Wife seemed to take it for  granted that Treasury Notes grew on  Trees. She wore those long lozenge-  shaped Rings that blind the Spectator,  and she had a different Sunburst for  every Day in the Week and a Diamond  Tarara that made the other Women  sizzle with Envy. She wore a trailing  Worth Gown that kept coming into the  Room long after she had entered.  Now and then she.would give a Party  at which $80 worth of Spinach would  be hung up on the Chandeliers. Tho  highest priced Caterer in Town would  deal out the sparkling Conversation  Water as if it were Burt Bi-Bosh of the  Local Knickerbockers.  He never pranced into the Ring himself for Fear that he might Interfere or  throw a Shoe, but he sat back in Section A and rooted for the Missus. Every  time she was awarded a Blue Ribbon  for another Social Triumph, he was  pleased beyond Compare.  Hiram was a Child of Nature, and he  never had been able to outgrow his  Birthright. Even when he was attii-d  in his $135 Evening Clothes, one could  tell by looking at him that he knew how  to milk a Cow. He had more Hands  and Feet than he could dispose of at  one Time.  Hiram could not comb his Hair so  that it would Stay, and although he  never contrived to get the Hang of a  tie-for-yourself Bow Tie, so he used the  kind that fastens behind with a little  Buckle. It was even said that Hiram  was unable to put the Studs in his Shirt  without getting Finger-Marks on the  Bosom. Hiram's Wife or Daughter Jessie always had to go to his Room and  look him over and turn him around a  couple of times before they dared to  lead him out where the Company could  see him.  When   there   was   a   Theatre   Party  Hiram always set back between the  Curtains so as to avoid spoiling the  Picture, and at the same time kept the  Draught away from the other People.  At a Dinner Party he was usually put  in between two gabby Girls who had  tacit instructions to keep him elbowed  into the Background..  And yet, Avithal, Hiram was a Man  of Sterling Worth and many admirable  Qualities. He was the Family Gibraltar, while his Wife and Jessie were supposed to he mere Floral Ornaments.  Best of all, Hiram was known to be a  Star at getting theCoin. The Fact that  the Family put up such a tall Front in  the Society Column helped the Pupblic  to believe that Hiram was as good as  Old Wheat and as prosperous as a Kansas farmer. And he was supposed to he  long on Business Integrity. It was argued that one so Happy would have to  be correspondingly Honest  Hiram was so Severe and Puritanical  and had so much clinging Agricultural  Simplicity that no one dreamed the  Truth about him. In Reality, his Arteries were surcharged Avith Sporting  Blood. When no one suspected it, he.  liked to put on a Mask and sneak out  and hold up the Stock Market. That is  what he did until one sad Day in May,  the Stock Market up and Did him. He  got it right where the Hired Girl wears  the Rutching. ;  Hiram came home as Pale as a Ghost  ahd broke the News that he was in the  Hole. He hesitated to tell the Wife,  for she was a Fragile Being, unassus-  tomed to the rude Buffets of the Streir-  uous Life, and he feared that such a  cruel Blow might crush her. But he  finally divulged the frightful Truth and  then flopped to the- Settee and began to  Bluff about killing himself so that she  could get the Insurance Money. She  told him to Behave, and then she went  out and made a Cup of Strong Tea for  him.  Hiram had been the Imposing Figure  so long as he had his Financial Under-  pining, but when they yanked away  his Supports, he did a horrible Collapse.  When he got the Swing in the Plexus  and toppled over, he proved to he a  sorry uiter. He lay on his back and  claimed a Foul, while his Wife and Jessie hustled around to save some of the  Wreckage.  They gave up the Servants and soaked  the Jewels and moved, into a smaller  House. It was a rapid Come-Down,  but even while they were doing the  Parachute they continued to look Pleasant and be Game. Although their Female Friends came around to express  Sympathy and stick Pins in them they  forced the Angelic Smile and did not  act a bit like Heavy Losers.  They had to take in Roomers and give  Lessons in China-Painting in order to  ~sai^rHiFaW=from-iithe-"Poor-Houseraud  yet with all their Skimping and Economizing they never pretended to know  Poverty.  When a Man loses his Money he goes  to his Bed-Room to _rlnk himself into  a Trance. A Woman lights the House  from Cellar to Garret and sends out  invitations for a Party.  On an income of about $3 a Week,  Hiram's Wife and Daughter managed  to keep up appearances and occasionally to have some of their old Friends  to Dinner. Hiram never understood how  they managed It. When he looked at  the Cold World, he was for giving up  the disappearing beneath the Waves.  His Wife braced him and told him to  think of Jessie. Hiram wept and said  there was no Hope for tho Child of a  Pauper. Notwithstanding Avhich, Hiram's wife kept the Family right along  in the Swim, and married Jessie to a  desirable Catch. It is true that she  starved the Household for six months  in order to give the Young Couples a  daisy Send-Off.  And all this time Hiram, the astute  Business Manager, was standing around  on one Foot like a Town Simpleton at  t. Kissinc Bgg.  Hiram had learned how to do things  with Money, but ho hacb.to turn to his  frivolous Wifelby to find out how to  Manage it when there"was no Money.  In other words, Hiram discovered  that Cash had been the Essence of his  Existence, while it had been the mere  accidental Adjunct to his Wife's Social  Campaigns.  Without a big Reserve, he was a  Smoke. She, minus her Check-Book,  rose to greater Heights of Diplomacy.  In time she succeeded in resuscitating  her groggy Husband and putting him  back on the Track, but he had lost his  Ginger. He was stoop-shouldered and  gray as a Bat.  She turned up at the Club Meetings  just as chipper as of Yore, only she  came hy Trolley instead of Coupe.  MORAL: It is the upheaval of Tough  Luck that causes a Transfer of the  Family Sceptre.

There are issues in the present civic
campaign that, in my opinion, should
be carefully considered by the electorate.
The flrst and most important is the
public utilities in whicn the city has invested very near $200,000. How they
can best be made and kept efficient, so
that their earnings will lessen the burdens of taxation, should be the chief
concern of the incoming council. If
elected mayor I will urge the council to secure the services of a recognized
expert on electricity and hydraulics to
report on the condition of the present
electric   lighting   plant  and   the   best

means of meeting the growing requirements of the city for power.
The second is to see that close and
careful collections of rates, taxes, and
licenses payable to the city are made,
so that the obligations of the city may
be met promptly without making overdrafts on the bank.
Third, JEmcient service from all the
employees of the city, high'and low, and
the getting of full value for every dollar spent in purchasing supplies,
Fourth, . The "expensive road-making
plant purchased by the city in 1900
should not be allowed to stand
idle and rust, and I believe that
if the revenues of the city are closely
collected there would be money available to keep the plant running constantly in macadamizing and improving
such streets as Ward, Vernon, Hall,
and Front. It is useless to promise men
fair wages and keep them in idleness.
If elected mayor I will do my best to
give them both fair wages and work.
Fifth. Nelson's future' growth depends on the location nere of manufacturing industries, and, in my opinion,
it is the. duty of the council to take the
initiative, in making known Nelson's advantages in that respect.
Work will bring prosperity, and prosperity tends. to make people both
cheerful and happy, even if they do
differ sometimes on political questions.
Nelson, January 11th, 1902.
Alex Taylor district land agent of-thcCr-
P. R., returned the other evening from
Winnipeg, where he has been during the
past few weeks renewing old acquaintances. ' >
G. K. Tackabury, agent of the Great
Northern system, has returned from his
vacation. During the last four weeks lie
has been rusticating in the land of sunshine and flowers, having visited at Los
£iikele.s ar.d other California town3 and
southern lands.
The cold snap of the past few days has
been an agreeable one to the skating fraternity of tho city. Purj.ng daylight hours
the ice at the old shipyard' is literally covered with skaters, and 111 the evenings the
Mug is the great center of attraction and
is liberally patronized.
The funeral of Samuel Hoekaday, who
was killed at the Bondholder mine on Saturday last, took place yesterday afternoon
from' the Salvation Army barracks. The remains were followed to the grave by the
Miners' Union and a number of friends.
The deceased was highly respected.
The Crow's Nest Coal Company are extending their trade to the States, and are
at the present time shipping their coke in
forty-car lots to the Nortliport smelter,
where the coke is being largely used by
that corporation. Forty cars were shipped
through Nelson  yesterday  for that point.
If the Miner heard the comments made
by its friends on its insane ravings, it
would never again take actiee part in a
political campaign. It does not seem to
l'now the difference between a mendicant
and an honest workingman. No matter how
,pcor the latter may be', he is never a beggar for office or for drinks.
Plans and specifications for tho erection
of a block in the new town of Ashnola

Ward B. Falk, agent of the Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada, whose head

Will Candidate Fletcher Explain.
An elector who was so desirous of electing; Standing-Candidate; Fletcher mayor in
1900 that he voted for him in both wards
was placed on the voters' list this year
when the entries in the city's Receipt Register show that. ho paid his real estate
taxes two days after the date on whicli
tho law requires the mayor to certify to
the correctness of the list. Yet such, well-
known citizens as alderman Madden and
ox-postmaster Gilker and hotelkeeper Curran, who paid their taxes a few days later
wore left off the list, Will mayor Fletcher
explain why this was done? -The people
want an explanation before election day.
Are the entries in the Receipt Register
wrong? or was tho name of the elector
who took the double-header.in 1900 improperly placed on the voters'-list?
Water-Works Statistics,
According to figures prepared by city
enginer McCulloch, the city's waterworks
system cost $101,360.35 to construct and
$7787.S« to maintain, or a total of $109,l-IS.:t9.
Tho system has earned $52,2S4.11 in receipts.
This leaves the waterworks system in debt
to the city to the amount of $56,934.28, to
which should be added the amount paid
in interest on construction debentures, say
$18,750. The waterworks therefore stands
tho city today at $75,614.2S. Last year the
water receipts amounted to $17935.66, as
