 ESABLISHED  1892  THUKSDAY  MORNIISTG,  JANUARY  1G,   1902  DAILY EDITION  IT WAS A FBOST  BOLTERS MUSTERED LESS  THAN A DOZEN.  NO RESOLUTIONS PASSED BY THE  WESTMINSTER  CAUCUS  YESTERDAY.  VANCOUVER January 15.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The caucus of the opposition members at New Westminster,  of which great things were predicted,  resulted in a frost. There were hut  eleven members of the legislature present which did not speak very well for  the boasted strength of the bolters. No  resolutions were passed. McBride, the  former minister of mines, is credited  with having made the statement that the  government will not be able to muster  more than a dozen supporters when the  Louse meets.  valuation has been made data of the rate  of taxation imposed by each municipality is to be furnished the assessors who  will arrange a rate to be determined for  the whole province. A tax based on  this average rate will then be levied on  incorporations, and the products will  then be divided, fifteen per cent to go  into the provincial exchequer and eighty-  five per cent to the various municipalities, pro rata, according to population  by the last census. The commissioners  to be appointed every six years, one retiring every two years, salary $2500 per  year and expenses, the secretary to receive not more than $2000.  Engineer Not to Blame.  HEW YORK, January 15.���A test trip  through the Park avenue tunnel, in  which the terrible accident happened  on Wednesday, made by state railroad  commissioner Frank M. Baker, assistant district attorney Garvan and others  has developed facts which strongly tend  .to clear engineer John' M. Wisker from  .blame for the catastrophe, shifting most  of the responsibility upon the railroad  officials for permitting dangerous conditions to exist.  It was demonstrated again and again  during the test that whenever a Train  passed a dense cloud of smoke and  steam was discharged, which completely  obscured the signals and made it impossible to see objects more than eight  or ten feet away. The obscurity lasted  at times thirty seconds, and at others  as much as sixty seconds.     .  Another important development was  the fact that the automatic topedo system, which supplements the light signals, is defective. At the signal station  ���at Fifty-ninth street, where the railroad  'officials declared a torpedo exploded to  warn engineer Wisker,..six separate attempts were made today to explode the  torpedo by running engines over it, and  the torpedo failed to explode every time.  Expert mechanics and signal men  were called by the embarrassed railroad  officials, and they tried to put the mechanism into working order. Fresh torpedoes were used, and two kinds of locomotives employed, a heavy one and a  light one, but the torpedo did not explode. The striking apparatus���it is  called an anvil���was wedged up, but  even then the torpedo did not explode.  Dempsey to Coach College Crews.  PHILADELPHIA, January 15.���H. A.  Dempsey, the noted rowing coach of this  city, has signed a contract with the officials of Georgetown college to coach the  crews of that institution. Mr. Dempsey  will have absolute control.over aquatic  affairs at Georgetown.  TO TROT FOR A BIG PURSE  Schwab at the Wheel.  NICE, January 15.���Charles M.  Schwab, the American steel magnate,  made lord Rosslyn, the noble gambler,  who is endeavoring to break the bank  at Monte Carlo, look like a mote today  while he played at the Casino.  His play was so daring and successful  ^the'first^day^that^it^set^the^onlookers  wild with frenzy for gain, and he was  followed in his attacks on the bank by  many people, who declared his luck was  .unprecedented.  Mr. Sshwab started the interest in his  ventures at chance yesterday when he  began playing the maximum permitted  on any one number, $36. He went from  table .to table, always playing the limit,  and was pursued in his journey by  nearly every one in the room. He won  $7500 and closed his work for the day:  There was a big crowd on hand today  waiting for his reappearance, and the  excitement when he entered the Casino  was so great that the people appeared  to be out of their senses. Matters went  hard with him for a while, and the anxious crowd thought his luck had deserted him. He started in again, as on yesterday, by playing the maximum and  lost $10,000 at the first table at which he  sat.  Walking to the next table he placed  $36 on the eight, which turned up. The  eight pays thirty-five times the amount  of the stake, and this gave him $1260.  Mr. Schwab now pushed the $1260 on  the figure nine for even money. Nine  won, and with the $2520 he went away,  even on the two days.  Railroad Brotherhood Meeting  SAN FRANCISCO, January 15.���The  Brotherhood of Railway Employees has  decided that Chicago shall be its future  headquarters, and today decided to hold  its next congress there in May, 1904. The  question of ritual was taken up and the  conference decided that nomenclature of  the officers shall follow that of railroading. It was also decided to place an organization in each of the following  cities: Portland, San Francisco, Albuquerque, Omaha, Helena, Kansas City.  Denver, Fort Worth, St. Paul, Chicago,  St. Louis, Little Rock, New Orleans,  Indianapolis, Columbus, Nashville, Atlanta, Pittsburg, New York, Boston,  Montreal and Winnipeg.  To Tax Big Corporations.  TORONTO, January 15��� H. J. Petty-  piece introduced in legislature today a  bill providing for the appointment of a  provincial board of assessors for assessing the value of the property of railways, telegraph and telephone companies operating in the province.   After the  Boralma Will Carry Thousands.  NEW YORK, January 15.���The checks  for $5000 each were received here late  this evening from Thomas W. Lawson,  of Boston, to close the negotiations over  the talked of race between his trotter  Boralma, and E. E. Smithers horse  Lord Derby, and the Abbott, owned by  J. J. Scannell, former fire commissioner.  This is the outcome of Mr. Lawson's  offer to trot Boralma, 2:07, against any  horse in the world. When this challenge  was made known Messrs. Smithers and  Scannell posted forfeits, and Mr. Lawson  was advised of the fact. The arrangements* for the two matches now are as  follows: The Boralma-Lord Derby,race,  and the Boralma-Abbott will be trotted  some time between July 15th and September 1st, 1902, and will be for $20,000  a side. The club offering the largest  stake will get the events, and the two  special matches will be decided in favor  of the winner of the best out of five  heats in each case. Mr. Lawson says in  his letter today: "In regard to this race,  I do not want to split any hairs." The  remainder of the side stakes is to be  posted as follows: $5000 on signing the  articles, $5000 on the first of July, and  the final $5000 on the night before the  race. __   '.'.   Prince Henry Will. Reciprocate.  BERLIN, January 15���The latest arrangements in connection with the visit  of admiral prince Henry of Prussia to  the United States is that the prince will  meet the Hohenzollern at Hampton  Roads and sail thence to New York.  Elaborate preparations are being made  for social entertainment on board the  Hohenzollern by the emperor's special  orders. A splendid silver service was  sent today to Kiel from the royal silver  treasurers in the old Schloss. His majesty personally inspected the treasurers  and selected the service which is to be  used on board the Hohenzollern on special occasions. Emperor William's program is that prince Henry shall reciprocate the New York and Washington festivities with a grand, banquet on board  the Hohenzollern, inviting the present  members of the cabinet and others. The  cusator of the silver treasurers goes to  the United States on the Hohenzollern  to take care of the valuable wares.  BERLIN, January 15���Admiral Von  Baudissin, who is to command the impe-  riaj yacht Hohenzollern on her forth-  ^oming'visit^to^New^York-to^take-part  in the ceremony incident to the launching of emperor William's new yacht, arrived here yesterday. He will go to  Potsdam to see his majesty prior to sailing for the United States.  BERLIN, January 15���Later in the  day it was announced that the government decided this morning that prince  Henry is to sail for the United States  on the Kron Prinz Wilhelm, of the  North German Lloyd line, on February  15th, as cabins have been engaged for  a suite of 15 persons. The vessel, though  taking other passengers, will flrst touch  at Newport News, where prince Henry  and his party will be transferred to the  Hohenzollern, which is going there and  not to Hoboken, New Jersey. The movements of the yachts thereafter are not  absolutely determined upon. The present program is to ascend the Potomac  river to Washington, where prince Henry  will exchange calls with president  Roosevelt. Prince Henry and the president may then go to the launching together. This portion of the program  will depend of course on its acceptance  at Washington.  WASHINGTON, January 15.���Dr. Von  Holleken, the German ambassador at  Washington, today received a cablegram  from Berlin giving the dates of arrival  and departure of prince Henry, and a  list of the party who will accompany  him. to the United States. Emperor  William will send his adjutant-general  Von Plessen, captain of the navy Von  Mueller, and Von Grumme, aide de camp  to the emperor. Prince ttenry will have  his own retinue of servants. Herr Hietz,  the chief clerk to the secretary of state  for the navy will be of the party.  BERLIN, January 15.���German naval officers are eager for assignments to accompany   prince  with which Germany must reckon with,  whether in Europe, America or Asia. Tho  paper regards the immense development of  trade relations as facilitating harmonious  co-operation between the two countries.  Rioting Bull Baiters.  SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain, January 15.���  The decision of the municipal authorities  to suppress the annual holiday, consisting  of tormenting bulls safely tethered, occasioned serious rioting today, during which  many persons were injured and much property sacrificed. A mob stoned _the town  hall, the residences of the municipal officers and the barracks of the gendarmes  and swept through the strets undaunted  by the shots of the gendarmes. The latter  were powerless until a force of troops, arrived'and charged the mob. Many arrests  were made. ���          Refuse to be Vaccinated.  TORONTO, January 15.���"The Saints" is  the name of the local sect in Clinton township, near Beamsville, among whom smallpox has broken out. They refuse to be vaccinated and say they will go to jail flrst.  The health authorities have notified them  that force. Will be justified and interesting  developments are looked for.   .  LIBERAL VICTORY  THEY  GET   SIX   OUT  NINE  SEATS.  OF  FLETCHER AND THE REPORT  ;er for  Henry to mo United States  and" nianv young noblemen are bringing  influence "to bear lo obtain appointments  for this duty. The list oC possible appointments is already several times larger than  the suite which can be sent with prince  Henry. This pressure to obtain appointments may cause the prince's suite to be  enlarged. The lack of accommodation for  a number ot persons on the Hohenzollern  is the reason why prince Jlcnry does not  sail on the imperial yacht.  The Frakfurter Zeitiing publishes a remarkable editorial reviewing American and  German relations. The paper says these  were uninterruptedly friendly until German official circles displayed sympathies  with Spain at the outbreak of the Spanish-  American war. Since that time the Frankfurter Zeilung goes on to say the German  government has reached tho conviction,  somewhat slowly perhaps, that the great  republic in the west has become a factor  Council Adopts it.  The members of the city council met  yesterday afternoon in the police court  rooms to wind up the. year's business  and to felicitate one another, ere saying  farewell to the place which they have occupied for a year, and which some of  them may never occupy again.  All the aldermen were present except  alderman Hamilton. Practically all the  time of the meeting was consumed in an  effort on the part of the mayor to prove  that the report of the superintendent of  the electric light works was incorrect,  and during his efforts to produce that result, he used up all the spare paper in  the house in striving to manipulate the  superintendent's figures, whereby they  would tell.a different story. After this  informal and desultory discussion had  been in progress for at least, half an  hour, alderman Selous conceived the  brilliant idea of reading the whole of the  report, and as the last few clauses of  that report: explained* clearly the difficulty the mayor and a majority of the  aldermen were in, on the motion of alderman Irving, seconded by alderman  Selous, the report was accepted and  adopted unanimously.  The report of the city scavenger was  also presented, which contained the information that during the year 1901-a  total of 1700. loads of' refuse had been removed from the residential portion of  the. city, besides 450 loads of night soil  from the city departments. The revenues derived from, this source, which  the city scavenger had personally collected, amounted to the sum of $2873.45  in addition to a sum of $244.15 from the  city departments. After stating the  amount of help employed in the performance of the work, -he suggested that by  having the dumping ground in closer  proximity to the city, the work could  be done at much smaller expenditure.  On motion, the report was accepted and  unanimously adopted.  The Hubbard claim for the destruction of his shack, which has heen frequently before the 'council, was again  introduced in, an amended form.    The  original claim was $396, but has been reduced to $189.    Some discussion arose  as to whether the city was liable in the  event of the claim being a just one, of  which  there  appeared  to   be   a   feeling to the contrary.   Mayor Fletcher remarked that the opinion of the city solicitor had been procured, who. was of  -the-opinion_that-the_city__vas-notJiab]&  for the amount   claimed,   but  he   (the  mayor) was of the opinion that a clause  was contained ��� in the act that the city  was  responsible   in   a case  where  the  claimants property had been destroyed  by fire.   Alderman Irving suggested that  the council offer the claimant the sum  of $50 to setttle the claim, and in no  other manner to recognize the demand.  Finally, however, after some discussion;  it was moved by alderman Selous, seconded by   alderman   Madden, that  the  matter stand over for the new council.  This wound   up the  business   of the  council, and after a pleasant bandying  of prophesying in regard to the result  of the election, which will be held today,  it was moved by alderman Gillett, seconded   by   alderman   Paterson.   that a  vote of thanks be tendered to the retiring mayor for the ability and cordial relations which had been extended to the  council during his term of office.    The  city clerk put the motion, which was  adopted.   Alderman Irving and Madden  voting in the negative.    In responding  to the expression of good-will of those  who voted yea, the mayor reciprocated  the sentiments, and admitted, that while  they frequently had "tiffs" around the  council board,  they had got along together about as well as any other seven  men could be expected to do.    He was  aware that they had not always agreed,  but they would   not  be   of any  use if  they had.  On motion   of  alderman   Selous  Madden the council adjourned.

LONDON, January 15.���King Edward  has given the royal endorsement to tlie  belief current among the public that an  early declaration of peace in South Africa may be anticipated.

LONDON, January 15.���Tho appointment of Whitelaw Reid as special ambassador to represent the United States  Ghastly Result of a Spree  PITTSBURG, January 15.���A ghastly, discovery was made this morning when some  of the neighbors hearing cries coming from  the residence of Vincent Vencelsick, a Pole,  broke open the doors and found the bedroom saturated with blood. Mrs. Vencelsick lay beside her bed, her head crushed  almost beyond recognition. Three little  children, their heads and bodies covered  with cuts and gashes, and the husband,  Vencelsick, almost dead, were lying on the  floor.. From what could be learnd it aii-  pars that Vencelsick came home intoxicated last night'and assaulted his wife  with a. rail cutter. The first blow inflicted  an ugly gash on her shoulder and knocked,  her down, but she was on her feet asain  in an instant and with such weapons as  she could find in the room'she defended  herself. The threo children were asl-op in  one of the beds and the father rushed to  the bed and rained blow a.fter blow upon  them. The sharp edge of the cutter hacked  the children in a frightful manner and the  hospital physicians say there, is: very, little  hope of their recovery. The attack on the  children infuriated th-' wife and with a  knife in her hand she sprang at her husband and stabbed a number of times. He  managed to get in a number of blows during, tho close battle and finally brought  tho cutter down on her skull with all his-  force, crushing it. By the time, he had  killed his wife Vencelsick was exhausted.  He sank on the floor and lay there throughout the night unable to move." A stranger  found In the house by the police was locked  up. He refused to talk. .  Forty Miles of Dead Mules..  NEW ORLEANS, January 15,���It is bor  lieved. in shipping circles here that a British transport, laden with/American mules,  bound for' South Africa,, has,been intercepted/and-blown-up by a Boer spy in the Gulf  of Mexico or has foundered. A schooner ar-  livlng on the lower coast reports hundreds  of dead mules floating for a distance of 30  miles. This news has greatly stirred-shippers here, who fear that further desperate  attempts will be made to stop the export  of mules to Cape Town. Tho more conservative element attribute the floating car-  :eassesto a disaster to one of the British  vessels during the storms, that* have beQiv  raging near the coast this week. Dispatches  from Quinana, Texas, which is only a short  distance soutli of Port Eds, say that the.  schooner Olga has put into Mattagora bay  to shelter from tho fierce gale blowing on  the gulf and that captain George Paterson  reports having seen long rows of dead cattle and mules floating in the water. He describes the range of dead stock as covering at least 40 miles. Matthew Warriner of  tho Elder Dempster steamship line, which  furnish many of the British transports,  states that all their transports have been  accounted for except one sailing from  here three days ago. They have heard nothing from her. Tho recent attempt to blow  up the British transport Mechanician in  this port is recalled by those persons who  incline to the opinion that a British transport has been blown up. The attempt to  destroy the Mechanician was charged to  Boer agents.  Dozes the Hours Away.  LONDON, January 15.���The Vanity Fair'  correspondent at Rome writes: -Tlie death  .of the pope may bo expected at any day,  as his holiness can only be said to be just  alive. He takes little nourishment and is  generally unconscious. He suffers no, pain  and simply dozes away without comprehension of what Is going on around him."  Here's to Shamrock III.  LONDON, January 15.���After a lengthy  interview held today with sir Thomas Lip-'  tcn tho Associated Press has no reason to  doubt the correctness of the arrangement  announced yesterday that William Fife of  tho FaiiTie-on-the- Clyde is to build sir  Thomas Lipton's next challenger for the  America's cup. It need only be added that  no contracts to this end,have yet been  signed and that this fact constitutes the.  basis for the technical denials of the previous announcement. It may also be addad  that the association of AVilliam Fife and  G. L. Watson is' likely to bo even more intimate than was forecast in yesterday's  dispatch. These two yacht designers being  now apparently willing to form what amounts to a partnership over Shamrock III.  That Mr. Fife is to have the major part of  the work of constructing the new yacht is  greatly due to Mr. Watson's declinations  to leave home again for any length of time  so long as his mo.ther, who is in delicate  health, remains alive.

WASHINGTON, January 15.-Sccretary  Ixmg today called rear admiral Robley D.  Evans Into consultation respecting the  coming visit to the United States of prince  Henry ot Germany. The rear admiral has  not yet been given written orders detailing  him to act as the representative of the  navy at the reception, but that mailers has  been agreed upon, and secretary Lung today attached admiral Evans to the preparations of a naval program for tht; reception,  in view of the number of distinguished oilicers who aro now reported to bo about to  accompany tho prince on ills visit, It Is  evident that admiral Evans will require  the assistance of a number of junior oilicers. They will bo detailed as occasion requires. So far the state department is not  officially advised of the approaching'visit  of the prince, hence it is clone nothing toward arranging a program for his reception and entertainment. It Is assumed at  the war department, though orders have  not been Issued, that major general-Brooke,  as tho commander in chief of the-department of the east, will represent the United  States army in the reception.

Members who were present say they had a hot time. The dis-  >cussion, in fact, was so warm that another meeting "will be necessary before  the government supporters can be.  brought into line. It was agreed that a  referendum vote' should be taken at the  earliest possible date and that the municipal lists should be used.. The question  of the majority, necessary to carry the  act into effect was the chief bone of contention.    Some members suggested that  ���a majority of the total possible vote  should be demanded, while others favored a straight majority of the vote recorded. A. compromise which seemed  to catch the, majority: and which will  probably be decided upon,- was that the -  majority to be demanded should be 62  1-2 per cent of the vote polled to bring  prohibition into effect. The Conservative members of the house really favorable to the prohibition believe that this  majority can be secured Vhile those opposed to it believe they can defeat the  measure. * -  WINNIPEG, January 15���The,debate  .on"the address in reply to the speech  from the throne is dragging in the leg-  . islature,;.- Messrs.

While The Tribune advocates the election of these gentlemen,  yet the electors have the last say. They  will return their verdict in the ballot-  box, free from the domination of any  individual or set of individuals. The  campaign, so far as Mr. Fletcher and  some of his supporters could make it,  has been directed against a man who is  not a candidate for any office. This man  has teen vilified and abused simply because he has the courage of his convictions, and not because of any act done  when in an official position. The people of Nelson should place their seal of  disapproval  on such  politicals methods.  Candidates for office should be judged  on their.merits as men, and one elector  should have the same privilege as any  other elector in supporting the candidates of his choice without being viciously attacked in the press and on the  streets. People like fair play, and the  people of Nelson are getting a trifle  tired of the tactics that have been pursued by the element in Nelson that proclaim themselves the "best people."  Place your marks opposite the names  of John A. Kirkpatriek for mayor, and  John A. Irving and Chris Morrison and  R. W. Drew for aldermen in the East  ward, and D. C. McMorris and T. J. Scanlan for aldermen in the West ward. By  doing so you will make no mistake.  The efforts   of   the   Nelson   Boating  Club to raise money to make the regatta next summer a success  is commendable.   Nelson has the finest course  on     the     Pacific     coast,     and     that  it    was     chosen     as     the    place    to  hold     the    annual     regatta     of     the  North     Pacific     Rowing     Association  is     no     mean     honor.      Our    people  should make every effort to  assist  the  local beating club to raise funds, for it  will take money to pull off the event  successfully.   Nelson has been spending  thousands  of dollars  annually  in  celebrating Dominion Day, and some of the  celebrations have been a success.    Last  year's however, showed that Nelson cannot have any large gathering of people  until she has a race track and athletic  ground.   The people who come here now  to attend   our  Dominion  Day  celebrations are no longer strangers;   but the  people who, by proper effort, could be  induced to   come here   to   witness   an  event like a regatta would be strangers  who would talk of the place and its ad- j  vantages on their return home.   Let the  money that could be gathered for the  Dominion Day celebration be gathered  and handed over to help the boat club  make the regatta a success.  Issues Handled Without Gloves.  The largest public meeting ever held  in Nelson during a civic contest was  held in the opera house last night. The  house was packed. The occasion was  the Kirkpatriek rally. Dr. McLennan  occupied the chair. The speakers were  alderman Irving, and candidates Scanlan, Drew, McMorris, and Kirkpatriek,  candidate Morrison being absent on ac-  caunt of illness in his family. The  chairman said that mayor Fletcher  could have time, but Mr. Fletcher after  making a statement as to his offer to  allow Mr. Kirkpatriek time at his meeting on Monday and his request that he  and W. A. Macdonald be allowed time  at the meeting last night, declined to  make a speech and be followed by men  who would deal him sledge-hammer  blows. He retired, and alderman Irving  opened with a well-delivered speecn. He  referred to his actions and votes as alderman, and said he believed he had  acted at all times in the best interests  of the city. Mr. Scanlan followed, and  surprised his friends. He is an easy and  graceful speaker and has a good presence. He declared that he was supporting Mr. Kirkpatriek for mayor, but that  he,' if elected, would at all times do what  he thought was to the best interests of  the city. Mr. Drew came next, and while  his speech was not so lengthy as the  others, what he did say was to the point  and was well received. Captain McMorris was the last of the candidates for  alderman to speak. He referred to the  C. P. R. improvements made in Nelson,  and said that mayor Fletcher, had nothing whatever to do with bringing them  about, and clearly showed what the  mayor claimed he. had done would have  been done no matter who, for the time,  , happened to be mayor. He referred to  the mayor's change of front on the electric light question and to his neglect to  furnish the ratepayers with a statement  of the business transacted during the  year. He claimed that he was entirely  independent of any party or faction,  and if elected he would be his own master. s  John A. Kirkpatriek made his maiden  speech. He said his address to the electors clearly defined his position on questions that affected the pity's interests.  -He-was-ln-favor^of^placingjthe^cltyjn^  an independent position for supplying  itself with power, and if elected he would  urge the council to at once begin acquiring information as to the best .methods  to pursue. He also claimed it was the  duty of the mayor to see that subordinate officials gave the city good.service  for their salaries. He favored keeping  things moving, and there was plenty to  do in the way of street improvements  to give many men employment who  were, through various causes, unable to  leave the city to seek employment. He  claimed he was not in leading strings to  any man or set of men; that he was  just as independent as his opponent, and  if it came to a show down more so. He  took his seat amid loud applause and  cheers.  There   were   cries   for Fletcher and  Houston, and the latter took the platform.    The audience was in sympathy  with the one man   that   in   this campaign  has  been  vilified and abused  in  print and  lied about, and blackguarded  on the streets and in .conferences.   Last  night these men got a taste of high life  that they will not forget for many a day:  The speaker was in good form and as  his memory goes back to the early history of Nelson, he told a few of his detractors a few plain truths.   In opening  he referred to the assertions of mayor  Fletcher that Mr. Kirkpatriek had refused to attend his   meeting   on   Monday  night and he had also refused to accord  him and one of his supporters (W.  A.  Macdonald) a chance to speak then. Mr.  Houston said   the   Fletcher   party   was  Playing their own hand in the game of  politics, and that Mr. Kirkpatriek and  his supporters were doing the same. Mr.  Kirkpatriek and his supporters did not  ask  for time at the Monday meeting;  that   meeting   was   conducted   by   Mr.  Fletcher and his friends without any interruptions   whatever   from   the   Kirkpatriek side. They maae their addresses  to the jury (the electors who attended  the meeting) and had their say. Tonight  the Kirkpatriek candidates were making  their plea   to the   jury.    "But,"   added  Mr. Houston, "I have been doing Frank  Fletcher favors off and on  for a good  many   years.    A   year   ago,   when   his  trusted friends had deserted him, I and  my friends made him mayor, and presented him the office on a silver salver  ���without a dollar of expense to him. I  will do him another favor.   He can take  the platform  now, and   have   half  my  time to reply to the men who are op-  DELICATE  TINTS  The newest "thing"  In correspondence  papers is  dimitt;  This paper is unlike any other.

Showrooms Mason & Rlreh Piano?.  posing him as candidates." This generous and fair offer was not accepted  by Mr. Fletcher, although it was repeated. The audience took for granted  that Mr. Fletcher was not particularly  anxious to make a speech when he was  to be followed by the man who had been  his opponent in several contests.  The speaker then took up one of Mr.  _*Jeicher's addresses, and referred to the  sentence advocating peace and good-  wi'l. He said the sentence had already  borne fruit. That Dr. LaBau and Dr.  An niir, two men whose differences had  caused more discord and more ill-feeling in Nelson than had been caused by  any dr>zen men in the city, had become  a lion and a lamb and were supporting  Mr. Fletcher not because they loved  each other more or Mr. Fletcher less,  but because they hated John Houston  above all men.  The. speaker then threw several ho-  qnets at alderman Selous, whom he described as a genial old gentleman who  was satisfied with things as they existed  and v.l;o was not ambitious to do anything, leir.g willing to stand on his record of !,ije past.  He re. -t red to the broken pledges of  maj'or "Tl-Lcher and his supporters in  the c(vrcil, and said that two of the al-  d'Tnim who had supported the West  Koch nay Power & Light Company bylaw iiad repented of their folly, but that  tai one Lad heard that mayor Fletch*r  had so r*pented, or that the mayor's  political advocate (W. A. Macdonald)  had made any such confession. This  brought Mr. Macdonald to his feet, and  he wanted an opportunity to place himself on record. Quick as a flash came  the reply: "Do it right now on this  platform," and Mr. Houston took a seat  on a chair.  ;: Mr. Macdonald took the platform, and  he was in a white heat. He began by  saying it was an outrage that Mr. Houston should refer to such men as Dr. La  Bau and Dr. Arthur and himself in the  way he did. That they were not candidates for any offlce and therefore should  be.free from attack. Mr. Macdonald  then went on to state that the success  of the tramway was dear to his heart;  that he had done everything he possibly could to make it a success; but that  every effort of his and his co-directors  to sell the company's surplus power to  the. city was thwarted by John Houston,  who sneered at and decried the tramway comapny. That in 1900 all six members of the council had reached an agreement that, was satisfactory to the tramway comapny but that John Houston as  mayor had knocked it. Mr. Macdonald  said he only wished he had an opportunity to piesent his views on the question* at issue in the campaign, but that  he v.culd probably not be allowed the  o-Uortunity The audience did not appeal- to be at all anxious to hear his  views, and he retired, and he probably  wishes this morning that he had not  taken the platform.  On resuming,   Mr.  Houston   said, "I  knew I would get a rise from him." He  then clearly showed, and challenged Mr.  Jtfacdqnald^ to^^njradjet^the statement,  that he had been called on in-JartuafyT  1900, shortly after he was elected mayor,  by Mr. Macdonald and captain Duncan  and Mr,"Peters; that they wanted him to  help them out of the hole in which they  had got the tramway company into by  making a bad  bargain with  the West  Kootenay   Power   &   Light   Company.  After-much evasion, they had told him  they were compelled to take 150 electric  horse-power from   the  power  company,  and that they had at least   SO   horsepower of a surplus that they could turn  over to the city.   That he said he would  use his influence with  the   council   to  take the surplus power off their hands  and pay them the same price for it that  they paid the power company. By doing  this their power bill would be more than  cut in two, and that they would save at  least $5000 a year.    He was  informed  by these gentlemen that they could not  make any such arrangement;  that the  power company would not allow them to  sell  their  surplus  power  direct to  the  city; that what they wanted to do was  to get the privilege of using their power  to supply people with light direct that  the city could not supply.   That he said,  so long as he was mayor, no such arrangement would be made if he could  prevent it;  that the city did not need  to take any one into partnership with it  to carry on any of its public utilities.  The interview then came to an end. Yet  the very arrangement he offered to make  in January, 1900, was made in December,  1901, when it was found that the people would not stand any other arrangement,  and  the tramway company lost  ���".lose on to $10,000 by refusing to accept  his good offices.    Notwithstanding this,  Mr. Macdonald, the paid solicitor of the  tramway  company,  had  the  hardihood  to appear on a public platform and accuse him of doing everything possible  to injure the interests of the company.  Mr. Houston then referred to the strictures made by Mr. Macdonald regarding  his references   to Dr.   LaBau   and   Dr.  Arthur and himself.    He said  that during this  campaign   that he  had   been  singled out   for the   meanest   kind   of  abuse, yet he was no more a candidate  for office than was Mr. Macdonald. Mayor  Fletcher   had   addressed   a circular   to  every  elector   in   Nelson,   in   which   no  reference was made to any of the can-  dilaroB opposing him, sole reference being made to him as editor of The Tribune.   He characterized this as the most  disgraceful kind of ward politics;  yet  w  to  to  9\ '        | WE WILL  ft  ftj\ Special Low Prices on all  jL Dress Goods, Silks, Under-  (f J wear, Beady-to-Wear Suits,  7|\ Skirts, etc.  fi\ A few Silk Blouses at cut  jl; prices.

The applause here  was deafening, the people present apparently showing by their a.pplause that  they were thoroughly in accord with Mr.  Houston's statements.  The speaker then claimed,that mayor  Fletcher and the members of the council who had supported him, had neglected or refused to give the people an ac-  cout of their stewardship for the year  they had charge of the city's business,  and that until such a statement had  been presented they were unworthy of  a renewal of the people's confidence.  "If Nelson ever becomes a city," said  the speaker,; "it will be from the efforts  of men who will try to do something,  and not by men who are willing to sit  still and do nothing. The empty houses  in Nelson will remain empty unless people can be" induced to come here, and  they "Will notrCpme here unless they can  secure."'employment. Employment can  only be.seiured through the, establishment of manufacturing industries, and  one of the best ways to secure such in-,  dustries. is for the city to be in a position to furnish cheap.power,'light, and  water. Make these three factors in manufacturing 'so cheap, that any advantages the east may have in cheap labor  will be offset.  The promise of fair wages made by  Mr. Fletcher .meant nothing when taken  in connection with his policy of do nothing. Promises of fair wages would not  buy bread or pay board bills. What the  working people wanted was plenty of  work and fair wages, and if John A.  Kirkpatriek was elected mayor, being  young and progressive, he would keep  things moving.  The speaker then referred to Mr. Kirkpatriek as a man who had been successful in business, and that his business  training would be of great advantage to  the city at this time, when things had  .gO-t_ja. trifle too lax _ by tpo many of the  officials spending too much of their time"  in making journeys between the city hall  and Baker street resorts. That the subordinate city officials were all capable  men, the city clerk especially so, if only  held down to their work with a strong  hand.  Mr. Houston jokingly referred to the  first work Mr. Kirkpatriek did in Nelson in the spring of 1892. He was employed by T. A. Mills to paint the front  of the building now known as the Victoria block, and he painted it red.  "Kirkpatrick's friends," he predicted,  "would all be in the painting business  tomorrow night, and Nelson would be  painted a bright red."  After referring to each of the aldermanic candidates. Mr. Houston thanked  the audience for the attention given  him, and he retired amid as hearty  cheers as were ever given in the opera  house. *____   Illinois Wants the Licence  CHICAGO, January 14.���Notice has been  served on the Illinois steel branch of the  United States Steel Corporation that It  must pay into the treasury of the state of  Illinois from $(*S,000 to $70,000.

Monsch  stabbed and killed George Off in !Sli7, in  this city. He was tried in 1870 and found  guilty and the jury's verdict was death.  On August 12th, before sentence had been  passed, Smith broke jail with live others.  All were recaptured except Smith, a wife  and an unborn child, now a grown man,  were left in Louisville by Smith.  clothing removed and on Sunday another  body was found there with the head severed. As no residents of the. island are  missing, the mystery increases and the authorities are of the opinion that the murders have been committed at some point  up the sound, that the heads have been  severed to prevent idontiucation, the bodies  cast into the water and that the tides have  lpnded them on Whitby island. Another  thing which increases the mystery is the  fact that the same party found both headless bodies and says that he found another  some ten days ago, but before he could notify the authorities the body had disappeared.  Aimed at America.  , BERLIN, January 14.���Baron Heyl Zu-  herrnshiem, National Liberal, proposed an  amendment to the tariff bill in commit too  today which was aimed at the United  States. The government is authorized to  apply to imports from any foreign state,  such regulations respecting the consular  authentication of invoices of such imports  the declaration of their market value and  the cost of their production as may be enforced against German exports. The -language of the amendment proposed by baron  Heyl Zuherrnsheim is fashioned after the  American law and is regarded by Ihe committee as undoubtedly designed to offset  the customs requirements of the United  States and to satisfy the. long standing  complaints of the German manufacturers.  The amendment has not ben discussed, but  inquiry of some members has elicited the  statements which indicate that It is more  than likely that it will be.adopted.  Reciprocity of Compliments  ST. PETERSBURG, January 14.���At the  Russian New Year's reception tlie czar and  czarina took the occasion to express to the  United States ambassador, Charlemange  Tower, the gratification which they felt  at tho reports of good feling in the United  States toward Russia which they cons:ant-  ly received. Their majesties wished the Americans to understand that the feeling was  reciprocated by both themselves and the  Russian people. The czar- and czarina inquired particularly about president Roosevelt, whose career they showed themselves  to b'e particularly familiar with. Their majesties expressed the highest opinion of Mr.  Roosevelt's character and achievements.  COMPANY  OFFICEBEARER STREET WEST, NELSON, B. C.  TELEPHONE fiO. 219,   P. 0. BOX 688.

They are alleged tp have represented themselves last  night a.s Manners. Another guest ta the Jt.  Charles paid tlio bills and left with the baggage. They crossed the river in a skiff and  were caught before the train came, on  which they expected to leave. Later in the  day Manners went over to Identify the property and Klino accused him of being a  thief, under an alias. As the whole affair  had a suspicious appearance Manners was  also arrested. The police believe he may be  K'enrz, the New York jewelry thief, and  chief of detectives Titus of New York sent  a telegram here which strengthens the  case. Manners claims that he is with his  father in the pawn brokerage business in  Chicago and that the jewelry taken was  unredeemed.  Insect Powder Killed Him.  GALT, January 15.���J. B.

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 Uie 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 pFomise men  fair i 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.  Nelson, January 11th, 1902.
