 Saturday Morniftg,  Febriiary 21, 1903  ;>^..  NELSON TEAM WON THEj CUP  And at the 5ame Time,  land and  The  the III-  Sandon.  win of Ross-  best.  Word,  them  The  and.  was  Nelson   hockey   team   won the  championship cup at Rossland on Saturday last by a score of 3 to 1,  having  previously^ defeated Grand Forks and  bandon.   The'cup is now the property  ^e Nelson Hockey Glub, having been  won by the club's team three years in  succession.    The rgames  at   Rossland  were    played    for  rblobd,    and    the  JMelson team, although in a decidedly  hostile atmosphere.'-must have won on  their merits.   While local rivalry must?  be expected, the disinterested onlooker  at the Rossland games Could not but  observe that the Nelson team were not  favorites in any of tho games in whicli  they took part, not even in the exhibi-  * tion   game they plaved   on   Saturday  night with the combination team from  the Northwest Territories.-   Nelson has  ��� lone more than, any other two towns in  southeastern British Columbia to make  public holidays and tournaments and  carnivals a success,  but notwithstanding this liberality and spirit of live and  let live, the cry in most of the towns is  "Anything to beat Nelson!"   Nelson,  however,    takes   its   defeats   like   its  victories, and always comes up smiling  for the next battle.   The battle on Saturday at Rossland lasted but an  hour,  for in the-second half of the game Ross--  laml was not in it.   The Rossland team  hadn't  the staying qualities   that   is  characteristic    of    Nelson's   athletes:  They made brilliant-plays at times, but  it-was at times when the plays did not  count.     Considerable- money-changed  hands-on  the game,  three   Rossland  men being the largest winners, .which  goes to show that while the Rosslahders  as a whole were a trifle chilly towards  the Nelsonites, some of them  knew a  i^oocl thing when they1* saw it,  and  the  average   man's   sympathy   follows  his  money.   The Nelson boys' brought.back  enough of Rossland and Sandon money  to place them on Easy Street for several days. -    ~ ^   J*]  depended on   to do ; their  boys were taken at   then-  each . and   every   one  of  cheered to the echo.

The Kootenay Presbytery was in session in Nelson this week, and before  adjourning the members placed theiii-  selves on record on the CrowV Nest  coal strike. The following resolutions  were moved by Rev. Dr. Wright and  seconded by Rev. Dr. McRae and unanimously adopted: ^  " Ihat in view of much important information received on the coal strike at  Fernie and associate camps; and beiug  profoundly convinced of the immense  importance to this country that an immediate settlement of existing differences should be earnestly attempted;  and, further, that it is freely alleged  ��nd by many fully believed that these  difficulties have arisen not so much  from a complaint of insufficient remuneration fo/ labor, as , from - repeated  breaches of faith on the part of the  managers, and their failure to meet  the men and their representatives in a  brotherly spirit or co recognize eilher  their feelings or their' rights; and,  whereas,-we cannot suppose- that ,-tne  directors of the company or their- nresi-  ZoWrcan.naye ^any- sympathy ^whatso-  <f-~> i***-**-**^***-****, r JVt._  NOTICE.

' -'  ' Nothing is known at~ Nelson of "the  strike situation at the mines of the  Crow's Nest Coal Company^ The feeling generally throughout Kootenay is  oneof bitterness against the cornpanv  and its management. It is claimed  that the company has secured the finest  coal deposit in Canada, and that the  people of Canada practically built the  company/, a railway over which the  product of the company's'mines could  lie marketed, and in return for all this  the company has no end of trouble with  its employees through, attempting to  introduce in British Columbia methods  that have caused much strife and suffering in Pennsylvania. Nearly every  town and community in Southeastern  British Coluoibiaifidepehdenton mining  and unless a regular supply of fuel is to  obtained, the mines and smelters cannot be operated profitably. There is  only one other place in British Columbia where coke is made, namely, at  Union -/Landing, _;.. Vancouver Island.  The Union Colliery) Cpmpanv have 200  coke ovens at; that place.: Miis coke  canhe placed on cars at the ovens and  thenars transferred*on barges to Yan-  couver. The output of these 200 ovens,,  in addition to what could; be secured  from other places, rnight be sufficient  to keep the -Granby smelter at .Grand  Forks and two furnanceVof the smelter  at Trail in operation. The smelter at  Nelson has enough fuel on hand to run  it about three months. The smelters  at Greenwood and Boundary Falls will  have, to close down.  James tA_,   Gilker has  consented to  make the race for alderman in the East  ward, to fill the vacancy caused by the  unseating of alderman Morrison.   He  will be opposed by W. G. Gillett, who  was r defeated   -by   alderman    Morrison in the last 7con test.^^   Mr. Gilker's  supportersL.areBthe inen who el-ected Dr.  Rose mayor and John A. Kirkpatriek  and John A. Irving and Chris. Morrison  aldermen at the last election".   Mr. Gil-  lett's supporters are the men who tried  to elect  W. W. Beer mayor and who  elected  John   Hamilton   and   Harold  Selous and H.  Bird aldermen in  the  Westward.   The issues are  the. same  today as on January loth last.   Every  elector who is opposed to building the  power plant on  Kootenay river voted  for Beer for mayor, and, for W. G. Gillett  for alderman* on'January   15th.  These  people have not changed their  viewssince that dalte, and every one of  them will vote for W.  G. Gillett on  Tuesday,  March 3rd.     The  people of  Nelson   are   undoubtedly   in   favor of  building the^power-plant on .Kootenay  river and beginning* the work at once.  The election of Gillett means a reversal  of   the wishes of the people on that  particular issue.   The election of James  A. Gilker means/that there will  be no  delay in pi osecuting that work and no  reversal of the policy of the party  that  elected   mayor    Rose    and   aldermen  Kirkpatriek, Irving and Morrison.    Mr.  Gilker was a member of the city council  in 1897 and 1898,'. at a time ^t_���n the  council_ hadMvork   to  do   and did it  promptly.    He is "one of the best business men  in Nelson,  and no one \v,ill  accuse him of seeking a position   because of having an*Axe to grind-  He is  not being boosted Because he belongs to  a   particular church   or   a   particular  political  party.    'His   election   would  have no bearing on the candidature' of  any aspirant for political honors at the  next provincial election.   The men who  aie supporting" him are 'not trafficing  in' provincial politics.   Instead,   they  are supporting him! becau'se they-know  he^iSiriglit 0u. ailA^tiesLlons-<<thavartect  Nelson's future. .^They, know-.that._he  stands for progress and.''for'Strict economy in-conducting the city's business.  The Tribune is of the, opinion that* the  majority of'the people of Nelson stand  for. the same���things.   ^,. -~~ 7 r   .   ,:  Chris Mori ison has not** lost the respect or th��. confidence of the people of  the East-ward or of '.Nelson as a whole  because of his'being unseated'as alderman from the East ward.( He has the  qualifications required by law, that is  ^ieal property of the assessed value of  $5 0 overhand above any incumbrances.  If the assessor *failed--to value the property right, and afterwards correct edthe  valuation, which he v\as clearly.entitled  to do under the-Municipal Clauses Act,  Mr. Morrison is in no way blameable  for accepting a nomination for alderman, and'that he was elected^ by7:34  votes over- - the;"; highest "vote ��jwlledi  for the aldermanic ticket ofv theSB&er!  _*arty" shows' that the. people pf^tlie;  East ward preferred him to any of the  Beer Party candidates for, ald^rmanT  That advantage would-be taken/70fJa  technical point to overturn"the&willi/of  the people,was expected*;' as anyone atj  all familiar with the methods of,;z)bh6se:  who make up the Beer.Party knows that;  vindictiveness and hatred are fthefc  strong characteristics. Wh ile the people  like men, who have the co 11 rage of: their,  convictions, they have little use for  men who strive to gain position through  l.-gal technicalities and none whatever  for men who plot to secure the downfall  of their neighbors through the courts'.  Curis 'Morrison * out of office has more  than have the men who helped nut him  <��ut of office. He has the respect of his  neighbors and fellow-citizens; they have  the contempt.  The Tribune ventures the assertion  that every elector in the-East" ward  who is opposed to the city's- becoming  independent of the West, Koot enay  Power & Light Company will vote for  W, G. Gillett for alderman, and that  James A; Gilker will be supported only  by those who favor the city's owning  its own power plant. Men who want  to iHll an enterprise arehot in the habit  of voting for men who are in dead earnest in carrying out such enterprises.  The Progressive People-s Party committee-room is '.well filled with workers  every night, and they'^predict that  James A; Gilker"willjhev'elected alderman by_ 100 majority*. 7 Wv !&. Gillett,  his opponent, is relying on getting the  solid vote of the workingmen, but the  workingmen say they will not put th'e'  Beer Party in power, which they w,ould  do if they helped elect Gillett, as he  and Selous, Bird, and Hamilton would  be a majority of the council. It is well  known that Selous, Bird and Hamilton  are not over-anxious to push work on  the power pHnt, and these three with  Gillett could delay^he work for a year  ak least. They also reason that if Gillett was so anxious to push work on  the^ power plant as; he would have them  believe he is, he would not be striving  to get into the council, but, instead;  would be figuring to get a contract to  do part of the work./-Anyway j Giilett  does not^^ carry .-the.:^^ wprkingmen vote  around in his breeches pocket as he  imagines he does. 7     : 7 ^  Mayor Rose and the aldermen who  support him have riot attempted 'to  cover up the shortcomings of.any of the  city's employees. Can as much be said  of the three Beer aldermen, who are  nightly praying that W: G. Gillett will  be elected to assist them in downing  mayor Rose and aldermen Kirkpatriek  and Irving? *   -  London Parties  Are Now  Willing: to Quote  Rates and Terms.

There  may be dark days ahead of the United  States,  for there must be   something  wrong in a system that allows one maii,  a president of a railway company,  to  accumulate more wealth in fifteen years  than all the thousands under him have  been able to accumulate.   James J. Hill  has made more money-in the last fifteen  years  than have the thirty thousand  other employees of the Great Northern  railway system combined, and yet when  any fraction of the thirty thousand ask  for a 10 per cent increase in wages they  take chances of losing their jobs. There  may be dark days ahead for the United  States, but not darker days than  were  the days in 1859 and  I860,  when freemen   were struggling with   the  slave  power.   The slave power was smashed  after thousands of lives were sacrificed.  There need not be any sacrifice of lives  to smash pessimists like James J. Hill.  They will smash themselves if only-left  alone.   Their greed will'smash them.  J  The Canadian Bank of Commerce.

Two bills have been introduced,  one in the United States senate aud the  other in the house of representatives.  The one in the house, if passed, would  make mineral claims 660 feet square,  which is ten acres. The senate bill  makes the mineral claim 1,500 feet  square, which is 51.625 acres, the same  size as in British Columbia. Both bills  convey ownership to the mineral  within the lines of the claims extended  vertically downwards, as is the law in;  British Columbia.

But every time he turned around,  Friend was right there to tell him what  to do.  Friend was somewhat of a Shell-Fish  in the regulation of his own Private  Affairs, hut he knew just how to manage for some one else.  So he used to tell the Victim where  lo have his Clothes made, and he would  pick out his Shirt Patterns for him, and  tell him how often he needed a drink,  and in other ways relieve him of all  Responsibilities.  Ff the poor Mark wanted to remain in  his Room and read something by William Dean Howells,' the Friend- would  compel him to put on his Low-Front  and go out to a War'Dance and meet a  Bunch of Kioodles who wore No.-6 Hats  and talked nothing but Piffle.  The Friend was always making Business Engagements for him and then  letting him know about it later on.  - And sometimes Friend would try and  choke him aud take" his Money-away  from him and invest it in some shine  Enterprise that was going to pay a 40  per cent-Dividend every 30 Days. *  Friend alwyys meant well, "ak that.

The  Ninety - Pound Knight Errant and   His  Lady Pair.  Once there was an Estimable Lady  named Mrs. Killjoy, who used to hunt  for Trouble with a Search Warrant.  She was "not happy unless she was  being Insulted. Before anyone chirped  she knew that she was going .to have  Bricks thrown ac her Character.  Mrs. Killjoy "held to .the obsolete Theory that Man was pjut into this Mundane Trouble Factory to protect weak  11 and defenceless Woman from all Slurs,  Slights and Insults. That is why she  picked out for her True Knight an undeveloped Specimen about the size of a  -Philadelphia Squab,, with four-inch  Biceps:  His steady Assignment was to fight  her Battles. Mrs. Killjoy was -one of  those , Sensitive Plants who could not  get into a-Trolley without having some  one rudly Stare at her.; She always  suspected" that the He-Salesmen in the  Stores were trying to make Love to her,  and if any Man happened to be walking  behind her on the same side of the  Street, she "knew- that she was being  Pursued. ,  "Are you going to sit here and allow  your Wife to be Insulted?"  That was the Speech "she would hand  i him when they were together.   Then it  [was up to him to call some 200 pounder  or else be prepared to lie awake half  ihe Night and listen to the Story of  Her Wrongs.  Sometimes he suspected that she  wanted to realize on His Life Insurance.  His usual Play was to promise to  be an Avenger. Then he would hunt  up the Person who grossly insulted  Mrs. Killjoy and apologize in her behalf and say that she was a t'ifle Dippy.  What^ Mrs; -Killjoy needed was a  Hjusband in a'full Suit of Armour,  mounted on a While Horse and thirsty  for Blood. She had read the .wrong  kind of Books. Husband knew that  she would stack him up against it  sooner or later.  Sure enough, one Day he found her in  Tears, and learned that the Man delivering the Coal had been Impertinent  and had failed to remove his Hat while  speaking to her. She wanted to know  if Mr. Killjoy was a Man or a Mouse,  and that settled it. He  roast the Teamster, and  along to Gloat.  The Teamster was a Low-Brow with  a 48-inch Chest, and he did not know a  thing about the Henry of Navarre  Business. He grabbed Mr. Killjoy and  dusted the Bin with him.  While the sufferer was in the Hospital, waiting for the Bones to join, Mrs.  Killjoy sat beside him and said:  "As soon as you-are well enough to  be around, you must hunt him up and  shoot him." ;  "I will," said the brave Knight, "if 1  can get one of those Sandy Hook Guns  that will carry six Miles."  ~ Moral: In these" Days," Chivalary  must wear a Tag or it,will not be  Recognized.
