Kaslo Local News,  KASLO, January 13.���[Special Correspondence.]���Before police magistrate Carney  last night Billie Milne, hotelkeeper at the  Second Crossing, Lardo,'was up for an infraction of the Liquor License Act 1ft allowing gambling on the premises. The information was laid by special constable  Simpson of Howser. lt appears that Billie  is a financier and knows a thing or two  about disposing of time checks, which has  mado him a few enemies iu the camp. Being popular, he does a good business, most  of the navvies on the road patronizing his  tavern. After a few bowls of joy they usually leave the bar and proceed to the sitting room, where they indulge in the fashionable western games of draw, stud,  block jack, etc. On the night of the 22nd  ult., a game of stud poker was in full blast  when peeler Jack. Simpson came on the  scene, took the names of the players and  had Billie summoned to appear before the  beak for allowing gambling. Lawyer McAnn appeared for the defendant, while  chief of police Bullock-AVebster conducted  the prosecution. The attorney for the defendant in cross questioning Simpson, got  him so badly mixed up that he looked like  15 cents. AVhen asked if there were any  other gin foundries on the Lardo branch  where gambling was indulged in he said  there might be, but they kept within the  bounds of the police. AVhen questioned as  to what he considered within the bounds  of the police he replied, "AVell, I hardly  -knowr^Simpson^-also--knew-gambling^had-  been going on in Milne's tavern ��� for the  past 24 months, but did not know why he  did not lay the Information before. McAnn  acknowledged that it had been proven that  there had been gambling done in Milne's  premises and asked the judge to impose as  light a fine as possible under the act. Bullock-AVebster said, after considering the  circumstances, he did not wish lo see a  henvv fine imposed. Judge Carney imposed  the smallest penalty under the act, $20 and  costs. Before doing so he said he did not  blame McAnn for the way he roasted officer Simpson, as he was neglectful in performing his duty, and hoped that hereafter  he would attend more strictly to business.  Tho subject of a debate in a leading tavern the other night was: "Are policemen  non-producers?" The outcome of tho spirited debute was that policemen produced  nothing. ���   ,    ���,    ,.  Mr. Gintzenburg, manager of the Monitor  mine at Threo Forks, was in the city yesterday. He is interested in tlie Scoteh-  ICaslo smelter. It is reported a meeting was  held last night between the board of trade  and Mr. Stuart to ascertain If tho Scotch  intended to fulfill their part of the contract, but it has not leaked out what was  done, lt might come to pass yet that the  Kaslo smelter was only smelt.  Tomorrow the steamer International runs  an excursion to Mirror lake, where skating,  curling, etc., may be indulged in.  D. P. Kane's new block, opposite the  Kaslo Tavern, is almost completed, and by  the beginning of tho week he will be installed in his new premises. His office will  be the handsomest and most up-to-date in  camp.  Strong Railway Organization.  PEORIA, Illinois, January 13.���Frank AV.  Arnold, grand secretary-treasurer of the  Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, has  just completed his report for the last year.  According to the figures, the firemen are  the strongest, in proportion to the number  employed, in the United States and Canada, of any of the railroad organizations.  The firemen today have a total membership of '10,720, as against a total of less than  50,000 locomotive liremen in the United  States and Canada. There is a doubling of  tlie momborshin since 18(11, when the order  moved to Peoria, at which time it had  fewer than 21,000 members. The gain for  the last year was 3110, and tho insurance in  force is S5,i'2S,500.  Filipinos Purchase a Steamer.  TACOMA, Washington, January 13.���The  Manila Times reports that the British  steamer Celeste Borill has been purchased  at auction at Hong Kong by Filipinos, and  (hat hereafter she will fly the American  flag. Several bidders appeared, but tlie  highest price was offered by tho Company  Generale do Tabaco of Manila.  Greenwood Local News.

WICHITA, Kansas, January 13���It is reported that several people were killed in a  wreck on the Rock Island road at Okeene,  Oklahoma, today. A train bearing the injured will reach here at 1:30 o'clock. The  particulars of the wreck have not yet_been  ascertained.  German Royalty Visiting Uncle Sam.  BERLIN, January 13.���Admiral Prince  Henry of Prussia will be attended on his  visit to the United States by captain  Schmidt Von Schwindt and Von Egidy.  Also by several high marine officers not  yet selected.  HOME SMELTER INTERESTS  Must be Safeguarded  ROSSLAND, January 13.���.he agitation in favor of competition as against  the Crow's Nest coal monopoly is spreading throughout the province. Mine-  owners," smelter-owners, and labor,  unions unite in declaring that, in view  of the fall in the value of silver, lead  and copper, cheaper fuel is necessary  if the mines and smelters are to be kept  running. The monopoly has lately reduced the price of coke to ?4. per ton  on the cars at Fernie, but this figure is  considered altogether too high. Goal  has been selling all along at ?2 per ton  at the mines, Avhich is also deemed an  extravagant price, considering the comparatively easy and aheap conditions  of production, The demand for cheaper  coke and coal is made in all the mining districts, but is particularly strong  in the Boundary country, where low-  grade ore exists and where the present  cost of fuel represents 60 per cent of  the whole cost of smelting.  The movement derives additional  impetus from the fact* that the Crow's  Nest monopoly is now really controlled  by J. J. Hill of the Great Northern, who  is thus in a position to "hold up" the  Canadian smelters and drive the smelting industry of British Columbia into  the United States, Avhere it is to his interest to have it. The boards of trade  throughout the province will shortly  join in asking the minister.of the interior to lease the government reserve at  Ci-oav's Nest to some bona fide independent company made up of Canadian  capitalists so that competition may be  established Avithout delay and Canadian-  interests properly safeguarded.. It is  not a party question at all. Liberals  are ouite as strenuous as Conservatives "in insisting that the Dominion  government shall forthwith terminate  the monopoly of the present company  by permitting competition to the end  that the price of fuel may be reduced  and Mr. Hill prevented from deserim-  inating against Canadian and in favor  or American smelters.  Superintendent Makes His Report,  NELSON, January 11th, 1902.  To the mayor and aldermen of the City of  Nelson:  Gentlemen: I beg to submit a report of  the operation and condition of the city s  electric lighting system for the year ending December 31st, 1901. During that time  the main lines of the system were extended  bv the erection of 80 new poles, and the  stringing of wires for five" blocks on Falls  street; 5 blocks on Hoover street.4 blocks  on Latimer street, 2 blocks on Mi 1 street,  2 blocks on Baker street, and 4 blocks on  Vernon street. In addition to the above,  -wires^-vvere^strung^ from-the-West-Kootc-  nay Power & Light Company s sub-station  to P. Burns & Co.'s cold storage plant, and  wires run to the office of Dr. LaBau and  the office of Dr. Stoddart. Telephone wires  were also strung from the fire hall to the  office of the district messenger company.  Ninety-three new connections to houses  were made. These connections supply ifaS  10 c.p. lamps; from that number 35b lamps  that were cut off should be deducted,  which leaves the net increase for the year  at 412 16 c.p. lamps. The total number of  10 c.p. lamps now in use is 4935, of which  211 are used by the city.  The pole lines and the plant at the i��wer  station have been kept in good condition  and repair. The only serious interruption  during the year occurred in October, when  the armature of the alternating dynamo  burned out. It was sent to Spokane to be  rewound, and during the time required to  make the necessary repairs, current was  obtained from tho AVest Kootenay Power  & Light Company. At present the alternating current dynamo is not in use. owing to  a shortage of water, and the city Is using  current supplied through the Nelson Electric Tramwav Company; and according to  the last reading, the amount of power so  used was equal to 140 electric horse power.  During the year S3511.2S were expended  on construction account, which makes the  total so expended $7354(1.47. Maintenace and  operation for the year cost $8596.44, and the  total paid out on that account to date is  $24 293 19. The revenue collected for the  year amounted to $21,700, and tho total so  collected since the city has owned the  plant is $59,667.  Estimating the average number of paying lights used at 4500 for the year, each  lamp earned the city $4.S2; and estimating  10 10 c.p. lamps to the horse power, the  earnings per horse power was $48.20 per  vear The cost of operation and maintenance, on a basis of 4500 lamps in constant  use, wa.s $1.90 per each 16 c.p. lamp, which  deducted from the earnings per lamp leaves  $2 92 as the net earnings, interest and sinking fund charges on the amount expended  on construction account not being reck-  All of which is respectfully submitted.

LONDON, January 13.-- -A remarkable  article appears in today's Times, under  the caption of "Literature of German-  Anglophobia," recounting the character  of the anti-British cartoons which have  appeared in German newspapers which,  the Times says: "In coarseness, obscenity, and. venom are without parallel in  modern itimes. The wisdom of the publication of the article at this juncture is  much questioned, the Star says: "The  Times today, of all days, begins a series  of articles on the offensive German cartoons. The Times ought to hesitate before it deliberately flogs the passion of  the people. Are our. publicists mad?  Can they not see to what an abyss they  are pounding this long suffering nation."  The Times article, 'which is two columns long, says: "These papers are not  gutter sheets, but are sold everywhere  at the stations of the state railroads,  even at Potsdam, where the emperor is  constantly traveling, who was finally  obliged to personally order" their removal. Neither are these papers anonymous. One of the most infamous of all,  entitled "The Boer War," bears on" its  title pages the names of those distinguished in the literary and art world of  Germany. From 'a purely technical  standpoint the paper is an art production, but it is difficult to find -words to  convey a notion of the filth, which its  cultured artists and -writers venture to  lay before its "cultured readers. British  soldiers are reported as robbing the  dead; Mr. Chamberlain's state coach is  depicted as a cart, laden with skeletons,  and king Edward is shown drunk in his  bedroom, receiving the news of Cronje's  surrender. But the crowning piece is a  cartoon entitled "Herb Worship." The  princess of Wales,' que-ii Victoria," and  the prince of Wales, standing Avith the  young princess by their side as adoring  a youthful soldier, the legend under-'  ne'ath reads 'An English princess dec-,  orating the youngest soldier in the  British army Avith the Victoria Cross,  because, although only thirteen, he has  already outraged eight Boer women.'  This obscenity sold in respectable shops,  Avas eagerly bought by the public and  lies on fashionable draAvingroom tables."  LONDON, January 13.���The inaugural  meeting of the London Liberal Association at St. James hall tonight has been  aAvaited Avith great interest, principally  because it was probable that light would  be thrown upon the future relations between lord Rosebery and the Liberal  party. Taken as a whole, the demonstration could hardly be taken as an enthusiastic welcome to lord Rosebery's  reappearance in public life.  Lord Rosebery Avas not present at the  meeting at Avhich sir Henry Campbell-  Bannerman, Liberal leader in the house  of commons, and earl Spencer.were= the  ^incipFsp~eak-rs. The temper of the"  meeting was distinctly hostile to the ex-  premier. The speech of sir Henry Cam-  pbell-Bannerman clearly indicated that  if lord Rosebery returned to the Liberal  fold, he must come unreservedly and in  full accord with the present policy of the  Liberal party.  The hall was crowded. Sir Henry  Campbell-Bannerman and earl Spencer  Avere greeted vociferously. Miss Hob-  house, Avho Avas the first person to agitate regarding the condition of the concentration camps in South Africa, Avas  called to the platform and received an  ovation. In the meantime pamphlets,  denouncing lord Rosebery as a traitor  to the party, Avere thrown broadcast  from the galleries. The reading of lord  Rosebery's letter of regret Avas received  with mingled cheers, hoots and hisses,  the latter predominating. In his letter  lord Rosebery hoped that the meeting  would aim to secure the unity of the  "Common Sense Liberalism," to which  the writer hoped he had contributed to  in his recent speech at Chesterfield.

BERLIN, January 13.���The imperial  chancellor, count Von Buelow replied  in the loAver house of the diet today to  interpellations, relative to the Polish  question in Prussia. Von Buelow prefixed his remarks by saying that the incidents at Vreschen had been greatly  exaggerated. What occurred Avas the  fault of the Polish agitation and not of  the Prussian school system. Corporal  punishment Avould hereafter be omitted  during religious instructions. No one  prevented the Poles from speaking Polish, but they must learn also to speak  German and participate in the German  Avork of civilization.  He disclaimed all desire to slight the  Catholics, saying the government's policy was neither Protestant or Catholic,  just as his policy was neither Liberal  nor Conservative: "I knOAV," added the  chancellor, "only one policy, just as I  IviiowV'oiily one single individual nation.  The question' at issue in the eastern  provinces are not religious, but national.  Noav that these national conflicts are  forced on us, only two positive courses  are open���either to alloAV ourselves to  be vanquished without a. struggle, or to  protect our skins. The Polish question  is the most important before tne nation  and on its settlement depends the development of the immediate future of  our fatherland." Tlie chancellor concluded Avith assuring the Germans of  East Prussia that, the goyernment would  not deviate in the slightest from the  track laid out by "that greatest German"  the late prince Bismarck.  Arbitration Conference Closed,  CITY OF MEXICO, Mexico, January  13.���This morning's session of the Pan-  American conference closed in a ripple  of excitement which began Avith an  amendment looking to the suppression  of the final protocol in order, as formerly explained, to enable the compul-  -sory-plan-of-arbitratioiir-to-be-reported^  to the conference. This amendment Avas  carried by 33 votes, Chile abstained  from voting. The vote excited great in-  teiest as it Avas a forecast that the ad\ro-  cates of compulsory arbitration would  have their Avay in insisting that the plan  be reported to the conference. The sup-  pi essing of tho final protocol Avas tlie  removal ot an obstacle. Senor Pardo  of Mexico offered a substitute directing  that oil treaties reported by the conference to the department of foreign relations Lii-uld be drawn up in Spanish,  French, and Portuguese and English.  Thr-ieupon Walker Martcnez of Chile  ren-iu-ked that the hour of adjournment  had passed, it being after 1 o'clock.

Tho Nelson Boat Club dance will be held  at the Phair hotel tonight, and it promoses  to be a great success, so don't miss It.  Tickets can bo obtained at the hotel or  from the committee.  An attempt was made ..o have the school  trustees elected by acclamation, but it  failed. There were six candidates, an(l it  was proposed that two drop out and allow  the name of George Johnstone to be substituted. Dr. Hall offered to withdraw If either  Mr. AVeir or McKillop would do likewise,  but there seemed to be a little politics silently at work, and neither of these two  gentlemen would accept the doctor's offer.  The race will therefore be between Dr.  Hall, Mr. Swannell, Mr. Annable. Mr. AVeir,  Mr. McKillop, and. Dr. Arthur. Five are to  be elected.  the electric lighting plantof the cily "had  not paid a cent." when .the accounts in the  city hall show that the total amount expended on both construction and maintenance accounts amounts to $97,S'X>.0G, against  which there is an offset of revenue collected amounting to $59,UV7. This leaves the  electric lighting plant in debt to the city  in the sum of $3S,172.9G, to which should be  added the sums paid as interest on debentures issued���about $10.000 in all. The, plant,  therefore, stands the cily at less than $50,-  000. AVould mayor Fletcher sell it for that  sum tomorrow cash in hand?  About 250 people turned up at the opera  houso last night to listen to candidate  Fletcher and his aldermanic ticket tell  their experiences. AV. W. Beer wa.s chairman. Alderman Glllett was the best speaker of the bunch, and lie took the snap out  of all the others by declaring that he wa.s  glad that the 13-iinington Falls agreement  by-law had ben defeated, for he wa.s now of  the opinion had it been carried it would  have ben a bad deal for the cily a.s compared to the present arrangement with the  tramway company. The speeches fell fiat  aud there was not a cheer raised during  the seance. Tlie Kirkpatriek party will hold  a rally on Wednesday night at the opera  house,' to which all tho people are invited.  National Defences.  AVASHINGTON,   January   1.1.���Secretary Root has sent to congress estimates  ol* $?.07,000 for the defences of the island  of Guam and ?52G,000 for tlio defences  Tried to Nullify the Nomination.  The only incident of the nominations for  aldermen wa.s the attempt to.shut out the  nomination of D. _. McMorris. As is well  known, captain McMorris is master of the  steamer Moyie, which leaves the city al 5  o'clock in the morning and returns at 4:'S0  o'clock iu tho afternoon. His nomination  paper was duly presented by his proposer  and seconder aiul was received by the returning ollicer. The nomination paper was  not accompanied by a letter staling the  property on whicli tlie candidate could  (pialify, but such a statement wa.s handed  the returning ollicer a few minutes before  tlie time for receiving nominations closed.  The statement was not signed by captain  McMorris, but tlie assessment roll showed  that the property stood in captain McMor-  riss name. The returning oflicer declared  the nomination a legal one, but this declaration did not suit Charles Augustus Waterman, aad ho wanted an opinion from the  city solicitor, and he got it. It is strange  that the Fletcher crowd are unwilling to  give tho people a chance to either vote or  run for ollice.  Smallpox at Fernie  Fernie is strictly quarantined. Dr. Fagan  of Victoria, medical health ollicer of the  province, returned from there yesterday  and .stopped at Nelson a few hours on  route. He said there were 15 developed  Vases, and ho decided that stringent measures must be taken to prevent its spread.  While people can enter Fernie, none; can  leave il. All the roads are closely guarded  and no one is allowed to leave on trains.  The quarantine will not affect tlie yeoplo  who live at Fernie, as the coke ovens and  mines will lie operated a.s before the quarantine was declared.  A True Bill.

VANCOUVER, January 13.���[Special  to Tlie Tribune.]���A statement is published by the Province this evening that  an organized attempt is being made  throughout the province to bring about'  a union between the Liberal and Labor  parties, in view of the forthcoming campaign. A meeting is to be held in Vancouver tomorroAv between representatives of labor of the terminal city and  interested Liberals. This meeting, it is  said, is designed to favor the Interest  of.E. V. Bodwell of Victoria.  Ralph Smith is now making a trip  through Kootenay district. He is interesting himself in favor, of Smith Curtis;' ���  but neither here nor in the interior has  anything of a definite nature been done.  There is' a division of opinion here as  to whether it could be possible for such,  an amalgamation.to take place, but the  chances of taking sides in favor of Bod-  'well anj'Avhere outside of Victoria are  regarded" here as exceedingly small.  George Bartley, president of the local  Labor party, today said that no such coalition would be made with the sanction  of the local labor people, to whom no  advantages would accrue, supposing this  Avere carried.

Why does not mayor Fletcher publish  a statement showing the receipts and  disbursements of the city for the year  that he has had full charge of the city's  business?

To Create a Department of Commerce  WASHINGTON,  January  13���In  the  senate today Mr. Nelson of Minnesota,  called up the bill providing for the establishment of a department of commerce.     He   explained   the   necessity  which, he said, existed for the passage  of such a measure and was plied with  questions by several senators who said  that sufficient time had not been allowed  for looking into the merits of the measure.    Mr. Teller criticised that feature  relating to the transfer of the geological survey; while Mr. Hale.said that  the bill provided for a department which  ultimately would be one of the largest  in the   government.    The   bill   finally  went over, subject to call by Mr. Nelson.    The senate was in executive session for an hour and a half.  Murder Will Out.

And he spun a dollar  on the desk. The face of the female  that masquerades as the 'goddess came  up.'  Dick was gambling with himself over  attending a lawn party, for which mild  dissipation he" had little t_ste. If it had  been a base ball game now, or a' foot  ball match, or a boxing contest���anything with "go" to it���but a lawn party!  "Just the sort*of dopy affair that Jack  likes to snuggle up against," growled  Dick, closing his desk with a bang.  "You may shut up shop" to his Ganymede, "I'm going out to a Tuxedo giggle  grind."  Dick's twin brother, John Fowle, was  his exact image, but mentally they  were wholly unlike. In their boyhood  the latter was called the tame Fowle, to  distinguish him from Dick, the wild  one; but the brothers had reached the  parting of the ways long ago. It was  written that John/ should be'. elected  mayor of a thriving inland .city, while  Dick dabbled in stocks and enjoyed himself hugely on a small income,- and if  his way .of life savoredjof the world,,the  flesh and the devil, there was, at least,  no canting,hypocrisy, in it....... ,;.-.  Since their paths had turned at right  angles Dick rarely saw his-good brother;  which was just as well for the latter's  peace of mind; therefore the "honorable  John was not at all' delighted when he  met his brother face to face at the garden-party;- ..   ...  "Hello, Jack!" cried Ihe wild one,  "when did you fly the coop?"  ��� "I cameto ..the city this morning,  Richard," replied the mayor gravely,  "and having some little time,at my disposal I. accepted an invitaUoh to come  out here."  "All right," said Dick, taking his  brother's unwilling; arm, "come up. to  the house and have a jolt."  "Excuse me, but���"  ."Well! .Did you come out here to play  lawn tennis?" ,  "Certainly not. But I have no desire  to mix with any rum-and-brandy  crowd!!'  "So?" interrupted   Dick.    "When   do  ,you_return^to^ypuivJbOsk^y^ell?Jl    "I start for home tomorrow night:"  "Then you will be in town this evening?"  "I hardly thing so. The fact is, Richard, I don't care to be where a wire can  reach me!"  "The duce you say! You haven't been  looting a bank?"  "Richard!"  "Or eloping with somebody's wife?"  "No, I haven't!" snapped his honor.  The reason, if you must know, is that  the aldermen vote tomorrow on a certain measure, and I thought best to be  away on business at the time!"  "Um!" mused Dick. "What is the  measure?"  "Oh," impatiently, "something you  would not understand. It's a sort of  contract." And the honorable John  moved away, leaving his brother in a  brown study. "Crooked work," he  thought, "and if Jack has a hand in it���"  Suddenly, an idea came to him. Either  the adversary or John's guardian angel  was responsible for it���one can never be  sure about such things���aided, perhaps,  by, the. several "Manhattans" that Dick  had imbibed.  And that is why the wild Fowle boarded the Pacific express at nine o'clock  that night, and found himself at a seasonable hour on the following morning  in the city where his eminent brother  held sway.  "I'll be mayor, and run the street for  a few hours, anyway," he thought, "and  if Jack is mixed up in anything shady  MORLEY & LAING  BAKKR STREET. NELSON, B. V.  Showrooms Mason & Birch Pianos.  "That so?"  "Uh-huh���blast him! Blew off at a  meetin' over on the West Side las' night,  an' Meech is shaky!"  "Are you sure?" Dick was feeling his  way.  "Course I am. Sullivan made a regular to do���fed 'em a lot o' swoggle  about unholy combinations, municipal  robbery, an' all that. But I've got a  grip on Meech, an' if he tries to bolt I'll  squeeze!."  Dick reflected: "It's a blind pool I'm  in on, but this big lobster is crooked  for fair, all right."  "'F course," continued the other, "we  can smash 'er through without Meech,  but his Avobblih' may scare some others,  so we've got to choke him off!"  "All right; I'll see Meech myself," volunteered Dick.  "What!" His companion stared at  him in wild-eyed amazement.  "You heard me," calmly..  "Yes,, I heard," retorted the other  "but hang me if I understand. Just afore  you left you says: 'Burke,' (name's  Burke, must remember,', thought Dick)  'Burke,' you says, 'I'm goin' away until  the thing is settled, where none o' the  opposition can find me.'   An' now���"  "And noAV," interrupted Dick, "I see  I'm needed here."  Burke seemed puzzled. "I s'pose you're  goin' to your office"���they were opposite the city hall���"but say.".he added  in an undertone, "you don't look just  right Must of had a regular old regular down there, eh?".  , "Keep mum," said Dick, with a knowing wink.  "Oh, I'm fly," answered Burke.."Been  there'myself a few, so don't think none  the worse o' you. Now don't forget���  the thing goes through this afternoon.  ���So long. Ho! ho! ho! You're all right!"  And Burke lumbered away.  "Jack will have a reputation as a  rounder, anyhow," thought Dick, with  a wicked grin, as he mounted the stairs,  "and I'll just keep up that 'day after'  racket. It will account for any apparent  forgetful-ess."        .  , There was a door signed "Mayor's  Office," across the hall. "The throne  room," commented Dick. "Enter the  king!", r  , A freckled-faced oflice boy was expounding facts to a messenger. "I'm  .tellin' you his nibs ain't here," he was  saying. Then, catching a sight of Dick,  he ejaculated: "Hullygee!" and dove  into an adjoining room.  "A letter for you, sir," said the messenger. It was a brief note informing  "Dear Mr. Fowle" that "mamma teas  me you returned this morning, and I am  delighted to hear, it. Some of those  precious 'reformers,' headed by that awful Sullivan, are.bragging that they will  do us up, but I guess they won't make  it, eh? Stella." "I have no engagement for this evening." Whereupon  Dick whistled softly and thought.  A young man appeared at the private  office door. "There are some letters���"  he began.  "All right," responded Dick, cheer-  fuilyT" "We'll" att-nd^to~themr���Which  he did with a rapidity that made the  secretary gasp, and would give brother  John some bad quarter hours to untangle,  "The manager of that show was here  this morning," remarked the secretary.  "What show?" incautiously.  The secretary looked surprised. "The  show in Avhich children take part," he  replied. "The agent of the Gerry Society objected, you know."  "Oh, he did, did he?" observed Dick.  "Wonder if he thinks- he's mayor of  this burg?"

I'll bear the market and block the  game."  Dick experienced his first taste of  power and. position' in the restaurant  where he breakfasted. The proprietor  himself bowed him to a seat, and his  ord^r was served with refreshing speed.  "Now for the city hall and trouble,"  thought Dick, as he sallied forth.  But trouble came before he reached  the mayor's office for he had scarcely  turned into the street when a large man,  with a face suggestive of cloves and  things, planted himself aggressively before him, saying: "How's this, eh? I  thought you was goin' to stay out o'  sight until���you understand!"  "Had to come back���private business!"  "Oh, very well," said the big man,  falling in step.

"Couple o' men to see you, sir," grinned the office boy.  "Who are they?"  "Meech and Sullivan."  "Show them in."  "Eh? All right, sir." The boy retreated, followed by the secretary, to  whom he Avhispered: "Say, his nobs  mus' be goin' daffy! T'ought he'd a said  to turn 'em out!"  Dick received his visitors cautiously,  and sent the boy after a box of cigars.  "Good ones, mind you, or there'll be a  vivisected kid in your family!" and the  freckled urchin fled in amaze. John  never smoked during business hours.  "He's off his line for keeps," commented the youth, as he looked at the  "scale" which he received on his return.  John never tipped anybody.  "Now, gentlemen, let's have it," said  Dick.  "Well, sor," began Sullivan, fingering  his cigar awkwardly, 'ye've receaved  us wit' much cordialness, an' we're be-  holdin' t' ye for ut. Now here's Meech,  an honest mon as ye knoAv, who wants  t' do Avhat's right. An' I belave ye're  honest, too, in th' main."  "Thank you," dryly.  "Wull���I wouldn' be sayin' th' same  f Burke."  "Then you doubt Burke's honesty?"  "Mebbe. That's as may be. Annyhow,  that franchise bill iv his is a dom-stale!"  Dick glanced at Meech, who sat with  bowed head, nervously rubbing his  hands together. Sullivan grasped the  situation. "Perhaps ye'd talk more aisy  in private," he remarked discreetly; and  without waiting for a reply he tiptoed  from the room.  There was silence  for  a little  time,  then Meech said slowly:   "I came to see  you today, John, because Nellie insisted  that I should do so.   I had already decided to vote against the bill in spite of  Burke's threats!"  "What does he threaten?"  "He OAvns  the  house. next to  mine,  John, and she swears that if I go against  him. he.will,put'a crowd in there that  will drive us out!"  "He does, eh,?"  "He's capable of it. But there���I've  done just Avhat Nellie said I must not  do."  "What was .that?" asked Dick, curiously.-  "Well���" Meech hesitated a little,  then went on with an effort: ~ "Since  you were elected mayor you haven't  been to see Nellie. Now I don't know  hoAV matters stood between you and my  little girl, John, for I'm not one.to ask  questions. I've seen her cry some, but  she has never said,anything; and if you  prefer Stella Burke���I've seen'you' with  her noAv and then���why, you're your  oAvn master, and! we have some pride.  But today Nellie asked me to see you���  for the memory of the past.she said���  and to ask you for the sake of your own  good name to oppose this bill."  "I'll do it!" with sudden fervor, "And  I'll smash it so thoroughly that���but,  I say," he went on, doubtfully, "do you  think they are strong enough to pass it  over my veto?"  "I doubt it. There are a. couple of  others���Jones and Davis���-Avho could not  be bought, yet may be bullied into voting for it. Now, if they think that you  will back them up���"  "Won't I, though!" interrupted Dick.  "I'll be with them to the.last.call. I'll  wipe Burke and his whole' little corner  clean off the board!"  "You won't lose by it, John," said  Meech, earnestly, "for when the people  see what you are, nobody can hold them  in!"  "Never mind that. You tell Jones and  Davis that I'll back them up if they vote  -against-this-grab._-And^another_thingi  Tell Nellie I haven't changed in the  least���that I don't care the weight of a  fly's wing for Miss Burke���and that I  shall call tomorrow night,, if nothing  happens."  "All right, John, and it's a pleasant  message to carry. God bless you!"  There was a happy look on Meech's face  as he left the room.  "Send after Burke," said Dick to the  secretary, "and tell him to come here  at once!"  When the big fellow strode in, a few  minutes later, with an air of owning  the whole city, Dick wasted no time  over preliminaries. "Look here, Burke,"  he said, "that franchise scheme of yours  is a plain, old-fashioned steal, and it  doesn't go!    See?"  Burke glared Avith fierce amazement  Then he blurted out: "What the dickens do you mean?"  "I mean that I've cornered the market, and the deal's off!"  "Meech has been whining, eh? Well,  hang him, I'll���"  "No you won't," returned Dick.  "You'll let him alone, and you'll let  Jones and Davis alone; and you'll talk  soft, and be mighty respectful, or I'll  ventilate this whole thing in court!  Then, understand, somebody will wear  stripes!"  Burke was paralyzed, limp, broken up.  "Why your honor, I���I thought���"  "Exactly. You thought that I was a  confounded rascal, too; but for once you  were mistaken!"  . "Well-er���what am I to do?" Burke  had collapsed utterly. He looked about  half his usual size.  "Do? Drop it���drop it like a hot  poker! Tell them I'm against it���that  crooked work is below par, off the board  entirely, in this town hereafter."  The next morning, as brother John  stepped off the train at the station  where he was to change cars for home  he was surprised to find Dick awaiting  him.  "What are you doing here?" he  gasped.  "Pay attention, and I'll tell you," answered Dick, calmly. "I've kept you  straight, Jack. I was mayor pro tem  yesterday, when I sat doAvn on Burke  and killed his steal!"  John was livid. "Why, you impertinent rascal!    I'll���"  "Shut up! I've made you solid with  the people down there, you duffer, and  they're going to send you to the legisla-  utre this fall. There's a box of good  cigars on your desk. Smoke 'em, and  be a man after this. Here's a memorandum of everything, so you won't get  twisted. All's off with Burke's girl, aud  you're going to marry Nellie Meech,  who thinks you're a little tin god, or I'll  come up and give everything aAvay, and  punch your head in the bargain! There's  'my train! Good bye."  ��� A feAv weeks later the Avild FoAVle received the following laconic lette\:  Dear Richard:" Nominated yesterday  for assembly by acclamation. Married  Nellie today.   Much obliged to you.  JOHN.  They Ignored " Bobs "  A writer in "Navy and Army" tells  the folloAving story: "Once upon a  time, at the commander-in-chief's levee  in India, those who were being presented passed through the tent in which the  function was held. There happened to  be on the chief's staff an officer whose  long grey beard gave him a distinctly  venerable aspect, and it also happened  that Ave were touring through a rather  out-of-the-way part of India, where  there Avere numbers of officers to whom  the chief's personal appearance was  wholly unfamiliar. Moreover, the light  in the levee tent was rather dim, so it  was hardly surprising that about two  out of every three subalterns Avho entered from the strong glare outside  should glance nervously round, cut the  commander-in-chief dead, and bow sol-  umnly to the officer Avho fulfiilled the  arduous duties of 'Persian interpreter'!  But it was very funny, and I do not  think anyone enjoyed the mistake more  than the chief."  CLASSIFIED ADS.  ARTICLES FOB SALE.  GOJS/TJE>^-.2<T^Sr  0FFICE:IBAKER STREET WEST, NELSOp, B. C.

Mrs. Dumleigh had gone out shopping, and Dumleigh was reading the  evening paper and Avaiting for her return, Avhen the postman came with the  late afternoon delivery. There was one  leiter, addressed to Mrs. Dumleigh in  a strange masculine hand.  Dumleigh weighed the letter in his  palm, turned it over two or three  times, scrutinized the address and battled with his conscience over the  question; "Has a man the right to  open his wife's mail?" At last he decided that he had. Besides, he Avas  just a little curious as to Avhat might  be in the letter. For the next ten minutes Dumleigh sat and stared at the  open letter, muttering to himself. It  read:  "Dear Mrs. Dumleigh: Replying to  ycur Avelcome note of yesterday, I hasten, to say that I shall only be too glad  to see you at my private office Tuesday  day afternoon. I think now that I have  arranged everything as you desire, especially in view of the fact that Wednesday is your husband's birthday, as  you say, and it will be best to perfect  your plans not later than Tuesday.  You need not send your card ir this  time, but simply walk straight back  to my office. The door will be open.  I remain, very sincerely yours,  "HAROLD ANDERSON."  "Hah!" exclaimed Dumlei,rh. "And  this is the Avoman that I have trusted  for so long!"  He bit his nails, rumpled his hair,  read the letter over again, crumpled  it in his fingers, and swore.  "I Avonder how long this has been  going on?" he muttered. "I wonder  why she is so anxious to fee him next  Tuesday? Because Wednesday Is my  birthday, hey? Aha, I remember now,  she has been planning to have a little  to  to  to  9\  m.  to  to  to  9)  ^****************************** 0******************9*****************,  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  18_0-ESTABI,I8HBD IN N*fll_,80N-l-02  Before stock taking this month a  REDUCTION   OF  lO   PER   CENT  will be given on every dollar.

Just to throw me  off the track and keep me from suspecting anything until the last minute. That's it Well, Ave shall see, my  lady. We shall see, I wonder if she  has any more letters from that���that  puppy?" .  Then Mr. Dumleigh Avent to his  wife's room and ransacked her desk.  His search was not fruitless, for right  on top of all the letters were two other  missives from Anderson.  "Isn't that nerve?" he asked himself. "Isn't that the assurance of the  most hardened criminal? No attempt  at concealment. Everything left right  in plain sight, so no one would think  there could be anything wrong about  it. Now let me see what these two  precious letters have jto say."  The first one was a formtl note," asking if "Mrs. Dumleigh would be so kind  as to call again at Mr. Anderson's place  of business, as he thought he should  have no trouble in adjusting matters  to conform to her ideas."  The second Avas a longer note, which  Avent on to say:  "Since you were in this afternoon I  have given the matter much thought  and believe that you are in the right  as to the design you had in mind. Of  course, it would he simply fatal to have  Mr. Dumleigh find put, or even suspect,  your attentions, and'I beg to assure you  that so far as I am concerned the most  absolute secrecy shall' be maintained.  Please call as soon as you Ana it convenient. It might. be best to drop in  while,Mr. Dumleigh. is at his office, or  on your way home from  a matinee."  "That's enough," cried Mr. Dumleigh,  "Any man who can .put two and two  together knows what, that means. I  ���need go no further. That is, no further than to my lawyers,."'  He flung himself into a chair and  gazed moodily at the celling.  . "If that isn't woman's perfidy for  you!" he moaned. "Here I have given  her the best years of my life and the  most constant, unwavering trust���and  this is the end. I wonder who this  upstart of an Anderson is, anyway. I'll  teach him to enter another's horns and  destroy the peace and happiness of a  man's heart."  He loolced again at the three letters.  They Avere in plain, neat envelopes that  gave no hint as to where they were  from, beyond the local postmark. Dumleigh shook his head sadly and said:  "And even now she is on her way  home, thinking of her poor fool of a  husband, who is so blind as not to see  what has been going on inder his very  ncse. Humph! She's going to-find out  that Rufus Dumleigh is no longer a  lamblike person who has Avorshipped  her^with^blindrimplicit^faithr^But^I'll'  be shrewd about this. I'll let her go  just so far, and then I'll thunder forth  my denunciations, and she shall see  what it means to bring a lion to bay."  At that very instant Mrs. Dumleigh  arrived at the house and came into  the hall, calling:  ���  "Were are you,  Rufus?"  "I'm here,"he ansAvered, still staring  at the letters, forgetting all his plans  of shrewdness.  So that was how Mrs. Dumleigh  found him when she reached her room.  "What have you there, dear? Oh,  good gracious, have you found it out?"  slie asked, Avith a smile.  "Found it out? Yes, woman, I have  found it out," he roared. "And you  have the���the���the nerve to smile at  such a thing as this!"  "What do you mean?"  "Mean?" continued Dumleigh, now  thoroughly aroused. Mean? Why, you  Avhat-d-you-call-'im���this person���this  Harold ��� this Anderson ��� you have  agreed on your designs, have you? And  you will have no trouble in adjusting  matters, will you? And you are going  to preserve the most absolute secrecy,  are you? Oh, yes, you are. A.nd you  think that it would be fatal to have me  even suspect anything about1 it, do you?  Best to drop it while I am at my office,  is it?   Huh!"  The last was a snort of rage.  ' Mrs.   Dumleigh   was  staring  at   him  with wide eyes.   She exclaimed, "Why,  Rufus Dumleigh,   have   you   lost   your  senses?"  "Lost my senses. Well, I should say  not. Best to complete arrangements  next Tuesday, eh? Why? Because I  am lulled into unsuspectingness by  that fake dinner you have been talking about for my birthday on Wednesday. Oh, yes, I think I have lost my  senses."  Here Mrs. Dumleigh began to laugh.  She laughed until she cried. She  screamed Avith laughter, while poor  Dumleigh sat there, the picture of open-  mouthed amazement. When she had  sufficiently. Quieted  to speak  she said:  "Rufe, you big goose, thoso letters  are from Mr. Anderson, the silversmith, and refers to a chased silver  smoking set I was having him make  for your birthday present, and that  explains the secrecy. Now, aren't you  ashamed of yourself?"  Rufus  Dumleigh-' rose  to - tho situa-  *%&L4l^  Zftj^  ^^N^&^f  tion, put on a feeble smile, took his  wife in his arms, and said:   .  "Why, I ��� was just joking. I kneAV  that it was something like that, but I  wanted to have a little fun. That was  all. But next time you get me a present, please arrange for it over the telephone, if you mtist have communication Avith the makers. I don't like  these sudden shocks."  NOTICE.

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 ihe city may  be met promptly without making overdrafts on the bank.  Third. Efficient 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.  Respectfully,  JOHN A. KIRKPATRICK.

BLOCK  NELSON  TO THE ELECTORS OF NELSON:  There are issues in the present civic  campaign that, in my opinion, should  be carefully considered by the electorate.  The first 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.
