 The Nelson Tribune  Saturday Afternoon.   April 4, 1903  NELSON  WILL  CELEBRATE  m J���. ^Ub'.iC ��� rieeting   called  of the  tI ? .?S.h,8yettr TM Iai*^eI-v attended.  "�� chair was   taken  by the raavor,  ���e ���   ���,   mv  George Nunn acted as secretary.  In opening the meeting the mayor  said there was a general desire that  Nelson should have a celebration this  . year and a good one. -Nelson was the  natural centre for a large section of the  country. There had alwavs been excellent sports in the past, and if a first-  class programme was prepared there  would be a large attendance. A discussion followed many taking part.  It was felt that as, with the exception  of last year, Nelson had since 1850 or  thereabouts always celebrated the 1st  of July, that date would probably be  the most convenient.  It was proposed by Fred Starkey,  seconded by Melville Parry, that a celebration be held on the 1st of July  this  .year in Nelson. Carried unanimously'  amid loud applause. - - . ���  -J. J.-Malone moved, seconded by F.  Starkey, that a committee to take full  charge of celebration;matters be nominated.    "���:������  The following were appointed on the  committee: Mayor Rose, alderman  J. A. Irving, J. J. Malone, F. J. 'Dearie,"  VV. A. Macdonald, K.C., H. E.; Macdonell, F. Starkey, Geo. Nunn, Melville  Parrv, Gus Erickson. J. L. 4Porter,  O. H. Becker, C. Archibald, Harrv  Wright, W. A. Galliher, M.P., John  Houston, M.P.P., George McLaughlin,  J. Fred Hume, Joe Carter, D. McNicoll,  ��� W. Irvine, R.S. Lennie, A. B.Mason,  O. A. Waterman,- C. Goepel, J. McPhee,  Joe Thompson, J. E. Annable, and  Frank Tamblyn, with power to add to  their.number.  The committee will meet next Friday  evening at 8 o'clock in the city hall.  The.question of a race track was discussed and Mr. Annable's scheme was  well received. -A good race meeting  and sports of all kinds will be held, and  the meeting adjourned full of enthusi-  nsm for vyhat will be the finest celebration ever held in the Kootenay district.  _   5     . i���  NELSON CITY: COUNCIL.  The mayor and all the aldermen except' alderman Hamilton were present  at the council meeting on Monday last.  Tlie minutes' of the last meeting were  read and adopted. "' -  The first business was the report of  the city engineer re the opening up of  the: lane in! block 15 from Ward to  Josephine. Two plans were." presented,,  one bridging the ravine to the. back of  the stables, and the other to Ward  street. Referred to the board of works  with power to act.  The city engineer also reported regarding the damage done to property  on Carbonate street. A catch-basin,  placed in the lane behind the lot which  was being damaged, would, he said,  prevent further damage, aud also save  the street from being cut away. The  expense would be about $12.  Moved by alderman Selous, seconded  by alderman Irving, that the necessary  work as recommended be done. Carried.  In answer to the mayor's letter ahd  telegram, Drummond & Co., Montreal,  wrote saying they would uot care to  guarantee to sell the whole of the debentures at 98%; they would do their  best to sell them all. They were un-  ^oei-tain=how=long-4t'^wouluH"aker=bu.i  would like to have an option for two  months. They also said that a loan  could be got on any balance of debentures unsold. The letter was filed and  the matter of selling the debentures  left in the hands of the mayor.  A letter was read from Mr. Gigot,  manager of the Hudson's Bay Co., regarding damage to goods in their cellar  caused by the freshet last May. The  damage was $62, but rather than go to  law with the council he was willing to  settle for $40. -Aldermen Irving and  Kirkpatriek both thought that as the  city solicitor had decided the city was  not liable, it would be a bad precedent  to compromise and might lead to other  claims in similar cases. Alderman  Selous was in favor of compromising.  After considerable discussion the matter was left to the mayor with power  to act.  Letters from J. Sturgeon, J. Gallagher and W. C. McLean were read asking the council to see that the bank of  Cottonwood creek near their property  was protected, otherwise they feared  damage at high water. The city engineer said he did not expect the creek  to more than touch the property, and  thought there was no danger. The letters were ordered to be filed.  By-law No. 126, regulating traffic on  the city wharf, was considered and  finally adopted on motion of alderman  Selous, seconded by alderman Irving.  The mayor introduced the measurement of wood question, having been requested to do so by a number of citizens. After discussion it was decided  to leave the matter, over until the next  meeting.  Alderman Selous brought up the subject of the assessment of the city. He  wanted the council to order a reduction  of 25 per cent.   A number of people  had spoken to him, and all thought the  present assessment too high. All those  who talked to him were of his way of  thinking. Theonly opponent he had  heard from was the anonymous letter  writer in the Dally News, who was  neither logical nor correct.  Alderman Irving had not heard any  complaints about the present assessment. There might be some few places  on Baker and Vernon street the assessment of-which needed revising, but,  generally, the rating would be considered about right, more particularly on  the residential streets. A reduction of  25 per cent would be a poor advertisement for the city ���and was entirely  unnecessary.  Aldermen Kirkpatriek, Bird, and Gilker also took part in the discussion.  Moved by alderman Irving, seconded  by alderma'n Kirkpatriek, that the city  clerk be appointed assessor, and that  T. M. Ward be appointed assistant  assessor, to prepare a new assessment  roll.  Alderman Selous moved an amendment ordering in . addition that the  assistant assessor should reduce the  present assessments by 25 per cent.  This, however, found no seconder, and  the original motion was carried, aldermen Irving, Kirkpatriek, Bird, and  Gilker voting for and. Alderman Selous  against. - -.;.. -  On motion of alderman Kirkpatriek,  seconded by alderman Selous, the remuneration- of the assistant assessor  was fixed at $150, he being required to  be present at all meetings of the court  of revision arid finish the assessment  rolls complete.  On motion of alderman Selous, seconded by alderman Gilker, the city  treasurer was appointed collector of  taxes. ,  The mayor brought up the question  of the residents along the water front.  All the aldermen took part in the discussion which followed and agreed that  a clearance should be made when the  notices already given had expired.  Whilst there might be individual cases  of hardship, generally it would be better for those who resided on the water  front to move into the city. It was  anticipated'that all would be away  before the notices expired.  The mayor called attention to the  fact that the city clei'k and city treasurer could draw no'.pay,'. as . their .salaries had not been*fixedN It was moved  by alderman Gilker, _econded by alderman Bird, that the salary of the city  clerk should be $110 per month, and  that; of the city treasurer $100 per  month.    Carried.  The report of the finance committee,  recommending payment of salaries,  etc., was received and adopted and instructions given to iasue cheques for  the amounts staled.  THE C.P.R. STRIKE.  The position of affairs is much more  favorable to the. C.P.R. strikers than  ever before. . Winnipeg is still solid,  not a man going back, reports to the  contrary being false..: The., boys there  are prepared to settle down, if necessary, to a hard fight, and all are determined to remain.to the finish, though  they find they are blacklisted all over  the town by the C.P.R. The agent of  the O.N.R. at Winnipeg states he cannot employ any of the boys until the  strike is over, as he did not want to  buck the other road. The actions taken  by the boys to recover their February  payy haye_again been _rej*n.anded^_for_|  another week at the request of the  C.P.R. This is done to try and break  the strike and force the men back to  work by intimidation or starvation.  Rumors have been sent out from Revelstoke to the effect that all places have  heen filled, notwithstanding tha fact  that there are still 80 left to be filled.  The concert given by the U.B.R.E. at  Revelstoke on Wednesday night last  was largely attended and was a great  success, both financially and otherwise.  It is intimated that Air. Marpole him  expressed his willingness to come to  terms if the men will accept Mr. White  as a representative of the company.  This shows that Mr. Marpole is anxious  for a settlement.  Calgary is still standing firm, with  the exception of ont man, who has returned to work, although it has been  stated in the press that the strike is  over there. This statement is absolutely false.  The reports from Vancouver show  that things are getting mixed up worse  every day, although the company states  they are' doing business as usual. Affairs along the water front are badly  demoralized, as the company are experiencing great difficulty in handling  what scabs they have at work there.  The local situation has not changed  to any degree. The men are all standing firm and will do so to the end. We  intend shortly having a monster concert for our benefit, and we are sure  the citizens of Nelson will turn out in  force. Press Committee,  Div. 98, U.B.R.E., Nelson.  Nelson, April 4, 1903.  Duncan Munn of New Westminster  is dead, aged S3 years. Mr. Munn was  the father of D. J. Munn, well-known  in the Kootenay district in connection  with the Kaslo & Slocan railway.

He. is the son of  J. Ii. Holmes of the wire works, and  had only been ill a few days. He was  a fine manly boy, and much sympathy  is felt for Mr. arid Mrs. Holmes.  The Northport smelter has now three  furnaces in full blast. The uneasiness  about the coke supply is disappearing,  every train bringing in 10 or 15 cars.  Over 60,000 tons of ore are now in the  bins, and a prolonged season of activity  is expected.  The Hall Mines smelter blew in on  Tuesday and is expected to run steadily  for a long time, as they have a full  supply of dry ores and material for  fluxing in stock.

" ' '  Another victim was added on Wednesday as the result of the terrible disaster at the Nettie L. mine, on March  7th. Besides those who were killed on  the spot at the time, a number of other  men vyere overcome by the poisonous  gas. Otto Blohm wiis taken to the  hospital and hopes were entertained of  his recovery, as he regained consciousness, but the improvement was only  temporary, and he gradually sank until  death brought relief on Wednesday.  R. T. Lowery, the New Denver Ledge  man, paid a visit to the Tribune ollice  this week. He is in Nelson on his way  to Vancouver, where, in partnership  with W. McAdams of the Sandon Paystreak, he expects to make another fortune in the newspaper line. Mr. Lowery paid a passing compliment to Nelson, saying that if all towns had been  .as good to him as Nelson in the past,  he would be rich now, without troubling Vancouver. It is understood that  the Lowery-McAdams combination is  what is sometimes called "hot stuff" in  the news line.  A serious landslip occurred on Wednesday at Rossland within a hundred  yards of the business centre of the city.  A section of LeRoi avenue west of the  intersection of Washington street, and  overlooking the C.P.R. track, slid some  feet, buckling the railroad tracks and  damaging the Washington street viaduct hopelessly. The first slip took  place at 3 o'clock in the morning, and a  freight train passing soon after was  derailed. At noon another slip took  place, and further trouble is expected.  The viaduct will require re-building.  No residences were injured. The excessive seepage of surface water caused  the trouble.  On Tuesday last a sad accident: occurred at Ymlr:*   A big snow and mud  slide came down in Wild  Horse gulch,  below the Ymir mine, carrying off part  of the cookhouse and causing the death  of the. cook, .William0Moss, who was  the'only. man in  the building at the  time.   As  soon   as possible after the  accident  a .number of men from the  mine began the search for Moss, and  after several hours'work his body was  found nearly 100 feet below the site of  the building.   The deceased was well-  known in Nelson and highly respected.  He was a member of the Nelson cooks'  union.   Moss was a young man about  24 years of age,  of a very steady and  saving disposition.  He came from near  London, England, and sent all his savings   home   to  support  his   widowed  mother, sister and a sister-in-law,  who  are said to be almost entirely dependent upon his help.   Moss was at one  time cook on the Moyie.   The funeral  of Moss  took placeat Nelson today.  The Culinary  Employees'   Protective  Association had charge of the -burial  arrangements.   The trades and  labor  council, of which Moss was a delegate,  also attended the funeral. 8  NEWS IN GENERAL.  It is rumored that the British house  of commons will be dissolved at the end;  of the present session arid that the general elections will be brought on in the  autumn.  At Buffalo, Tom Jenkins of Cleveland  defeated Dan McLeod of Nanaimo, B.C.,  regaining the heavy-weight wrestling  championship. Jenkins won by two  straight falls, the first in one hour and  seventeen minutes, the second in fourteen minutes.  Eighteen hundred settlers left England for Canada on the Tunisian on  Thursday. These are the. first batch of  tiie all-British colonists, who are going  to settle near Edmonton. The. party  are said to have - over $2,000,000, with  them, and-, the.average age is under,30."  v ,';��� "V."-. "y    -'-.>.,-. ii-S-..,;j. i %: ^>.;���-,_��,>I,,-,-r.  The'Windsor winnery, the largest or  its kind on the Skeena river, was.'destroyed by fire on the 20th of last  month. - The fire consumed' the net  house, adjoining the cannery, 37 boats,  all fittings, machinery and lumber.  The cannery was a frame structure,  situated at Aberdeen, and was equipped  with the most modern machinery.  Property to the' value of $35,000 was  destroyed.  The Vancouver carpenters struck on  Wednesday, last. The strike is for an  8-hour day, 40 cents per hour, and the  operation of the card system. On Friday the laborers' union called their  men out and the, strike is now general  between the carpenters' union and the  laborers' union on one hand and the  builders' exchange with the mill men  on the other. The laborers' union ask  for $2.50 per day for general labor, and  $2.75 for mortar mixers, and 8 hours  for a day's work. This strike paralyses the building trade of Vancouver.  A large number of the buildings are  under contract and the outlook? for an  early settlement is not propitious.  The strike at Fernie is over at last,  although the Gladstone branch of the  union seems to have a number of dissatisfied members. The vote was  carried, and tbe officers signed the  agreement, along with the officials of  the Morrissey and Michel mines. A  settlement has been made for two  years, and it is to be hoped that nothing  will now stand in the way of prosperity  to the coal trade of the Crow's Nest  district. The conditions at the mines  of the Crow's Nest Co. fieem peculiar in  many respects. There are apparently  good wages paid to miners, but in connection witli the coke business, men  are employed at very poor wages for  this country. They are principally  Poles, Huns', and Slavs, speaking little  'English, and are said to be putting in  from 10 to 14 hours a day. They were  getting $1.60 to $1.75 a day which has  been increased to $1.80, which cannot  be considered even fair pay. The alleged riot seems to have been really a  very small business, brought about by  two or three irresponsible men, who  were severely denounced by all members and officials of the union. In some  quarters it is said to have been a put-  up job to bring obloquy upon the  strikers.  ROSSLAND HAS A SENSATION  Alderman and  Police riagistrate Accused 'of  Flag-rant Corruption.  Rev. J. Burtt Morgan has been arrested at Rossland on a charge of criminal libel.   Mr. Morgan was formerly  Baptist minister at Nelson, and afterwards  pastor   at  the   First   Baptist  church at Rossland.   In January, this  year,  he   resigned his   pastorate  and  went into life insurance as agent for-"a  New York company.   He published a  little  monthly  for some time called  The Truth, and in its final issue intimated that the police blackmailed gamblers in 1902, and that alderman'Harry  Daniel got part of the proceeds. Daniel  laid   information,   and pastor Morgan  was arrested.   He was, released on a  bail of $2,000.   The case came up before  justices  of  the   peace Townsend   and  Kirkup, and the lawyers mixed things  up so that the J.P.'s decided to place  the matter before the attorney-general,  who instructed judge Leamy of Greenwood to assist in the  hearing.    The  Morgan libel trial was continued   on  Thursday, when ex-mayor Clute was  examined  touching  the collection   of  fines ahd police commissioner Daniel's  connection   with   the   same.   The defendant was committed for trial at the  next court of competent jurisdiction.  Bail was renewed  in   the same sureties. '  The article above referred to, which  has caused much commotion in Rossland, reviews the encouragements and  discouragements which Mr. Morgan  met in the conduct of Truth, and was  the valedictory of the publication. He  says he started out with a good advertising patronage, but the elements of  evil recognized in the little sheet sign.  of strength which might make the {*i  carrying on of certain businesses full of,  troubles, arid the gambler, the saloonkeeper andthe7_carlety woman sallied  forth on a crusade against it, and, business houses were threatened with boycott if they continued to advertise in it.  This was a sad blow, but the paper was  continued.'  The  editor  then  reviews how each  class of the  community���- treated   it���  fnost of them affected to. ignore its existence. , -When the municipal elections'  . -. ���  .ctrae^jroundt" Truth,. was,.,in ' the" fi j"dib* \."'-V  'advocating civic' reform.    Mr. Morgan'  states that he did not commit himself  to support Mr. Dean for mayor until  that candidate had assured him that if  elected his policy would look, to moral  reform in-every way. .".-���.".;;.  Mr. Morgan next proceeds to castigate the present mayor for not having  fufillled that promise, and in doing so  used the words' that have caused his ���  arrest for criminal libel and an investigation into the methods of the police  court. He thinks that the present  mayor has utterly failed in his duty in  appointing to the chairmanship of  finance the alderman who was last  year one of the license commissioners.  Mr. Morgan also blames Mr. Dean for  not having caused the dismissal of the  present police magistrate, and what he  says about that official is so pointed  and direct that it has ,been drawn to  the attention of the Attorney General,  who has commissioned Judge Leamy  to investigate.  /  Another Crop of Senators.  There is to be an effort made in the  Dominion . Parliament this session to  increase the representation of the West  in the Senate. Manitoba and the  Northwest should have 24 Senators, the  same as the Maritime Provinces.  Cambridge Won.  Cambridge won the Oxford and  Cambridge boat race on Wednesday,  defeating Oxford by six lengths. Toe  betting was 7 to 2 on Cambridge.  NELSON SUCCESS CLUB.  The apparatus for Ihe gymnasium  has-arrived^and^by-the^first^of^Tiext^  week will be in readiness for use. The  gymnasium will have a vaulting horse,  parallel bars, horizontal bar suspended,  flying rings, punching bags, Indian  clubs, dumb bells, chest weights,  single sticks, foils, etc., so that almost  every form of indoor exercise may be  obtained. Shower baths and lockers  will be installed within a few days.  Regular classes of instruction will be  formed, and before the hot weather  conies it is the intention to hold an  assault-at-arms.  The chess tournament has aroused  great interest during the past week.  The odds for first place are slightly in  favor of II. J. Harbour, with W". A.  Jowett a close second. The tournament will close this week.  Preparations for the "at home" on  the 16th instant are well under way.  Fraternity hall has been engaged for  the dancing, and the K. of P. hall  above, where a quiet rubber of whist  may be indulged in by those who do  not care to dance. The proceeds will  be devoted to the gymnasium fund.  At the meeting of the mock parliament last Monday night, John Frazer's  bill regarding the tax on mines was  read a third time and finally passed,  after the opposition's amendment���five  per cent of a tax on the net profits of  all mines���bad been adopted.  ��� On Wednesday next the government  will introduce an education bill, which-  it is hoped will eliminate some of the  present existing evils of the educational system of the province. It is  rumored that a firm of contractors  allied to Mackenzie & Mann will endeavor to rush a bill through, giving  them a heavy land and cash bonus for  a proposed line of railway terminating  ; at Port Simpson. The public is cordi-  i ally invited to attend this meeting.  V:  il  II THe   Nelson   Tritm*ie.  BANK OF MONTREAL  Established 1817  Incorporated by Act of Parliament.

And we thus petition  because we realize the importance of  maintaining the day in its integrity as  one of the safeguards of our national  life."   The work of the Lord's Day Association is very much on an equality  with the Good Templars and other extremists of the temperance party, and  the petitioners will most probably find  that the legislative assembly of British  Columbia has too much work before it  for this and maiiy other sessions to give  the necessary time to enact laws of this  nature.     Workingmen   are   nearly always ready and sometimes anxious to  have a well earned rest on Sunday, but  whether the majority of the people are  anxious to have legislative enactments  prohibiting   games,   pastimes,   excursions,   etc.,   is   much   to   be doubted.  Until the ministers of all denominations can, by their own special efforts,  so control their congregations that Sunday fishing, picnics and games of various kinds now in vogue, are discontinued, it is idle to expect the general  public to agree to any curtailment of  their  privileges,   as   set  out   in   this  petition. .--''  Martin are organizing associations in  out-of-the-way places, and these associations are passing resolutions in support of the action taken by the Vancouver association. This faction of the  Liberal party is also outspoken as  against the redistribution bill passed at  the last session. They say that East  and West Kootenay are not entitled to  nine seats in the legislative assembly.  It is the old fight against giving all the  sections of the province fair representation. What Kootenay has she will hold  if her people are true to themselves,,  but she will not be true to herself if the  people stand in with mugwumps and  soreheads.  PROVINCIAL POLITICS.

Many  citizens take the greatest care of lawns  and spend comparatively large amounts  for flowers and plants, and visitors are  always impressed .with the splendid  floral beauty resulting from their  efforts. It has been suggested that the  city council.or the agricultural society  should offer prizes, not necessarily  large, for the best kept gardens, so as  .to promote a still greater rivalry between bur amateur gardeners.  The legislative assembly opened on  Thursday, and an adjournment was  taken till Monday after a couple of  bills were introduced. John Oliver  attempted to make a speech censuring  the government, but the speaker ruled  him out of order. The estimates are  prepared, as are the plans for Nelson's  new court-house. The plans show an  up-to-date and spacious building, suitable in every way for the requirements  of Nelson. It is7now up to the member  for Nelaon to get the necessary appropriation for the construction of the  buildings. Can he do it? Nob if the  Nelson "soreheads'' can prevent it.  Robert Scott Lennie is the man who  has been selected by the Conservatives  of Nelson as their next representative  in .the provincial parliament, so says  David Mark Carley, and he has decided  to run. David Mark says many nice  things about Mr. Lennie, that he is  honorable, straight-forward, and of  more than average ability, with all of  which those who know Mr. Lennie will  cordially agree. David Mark says Mr.  Lennie is a young man. He may be so  considered, but if David Mark thinks  because of his youth Mr. Lennie will  seriously consider himself as the Conservative candidate because the former  and three or four very young Conservatives met after the manner of the three  tailors of Tooley street, and resolved  that; they represented the Conservatives of Nelson, he is much mistaken.  , - In another column will be found the  way the Nelson Conservative candidate  for the .legislative assembly will be  chosen. *.. The executive of the Conser-  vative party, met on Saturday last in  Vancouver and decided upon the way  "delegates to choose candidates^bouTd  be elected. When the Conservative  party meet publicly to nominate a candidate Mr. Lennie's friends will have  the same opportunity as others to forward his candidature, and if he can get  a majority at the convention he will, in  all probability, be the next member for  Nelson in the provincial bouse. But,  there are others. ���   '  It seems that at last the people of  British Columbia are going to be allowed to have some say as to the exclusion of Chinese from tbe province.  Premier Laurier introduced a bill to  increase the poll-tax on Chinese from  $100 to $500, but nothing is to be done  to keep out the Japanese, the premier  saying that question had been settled  by the prohibition of emigration from  Japan. This is all right as far as it  goes, but some stringent measure  should be introduced which would be  at once put into effect should the Japanese government change its mind on  the subject. There should be no loophole-left by which a horde of Japanese  could be suddenly dumped into the  province to the detriment of white  labor.  The question as to whether anonymous letters should be admitted into  newspapers is one which can be argued  indefinitely. There iB no question,  however, that men holding official  position, should be protected by editors who admit anonymous letters.  These letters are perhaps admitted because of the smartness and vituperation which can be indulged in by  "Citizen," who would not behalf so  readable if the effusion was printed  over his own signature. This paper  frequently disagrees with alderman  Selous' methods in the council chamber and elsewhere, but it draws the line  at letting irresponsible scribblers vilify  the alderman when he, in what he considers the discharge of his public duty,  runs counter to some private interest.  The Brovincial Lord's Day Association of B.C. is circulating a petition to  the legislative assembly, asking that a  law may be passed for such better  observance of the Lord's Day as will  secure for every worker a day of rest,  The legislative assembly met on  Thursday with the usual formal ceremonies. The speech from the throne  contained little of interest, and tbe  little it contained indicates, that the  session will be a short one, followed by  a dissolution. The estimates are said  to be ready and will be presented next  week.  *       *  The executive  of   the Conservative  party ��� for   the  province met at Vancouver on  Saturday,  all the members  being present, as was Charles Wilson,  K.C., the party's leader.   The province  was   divided   into  five   divisions   for  organization purposes, each division  to  be in charge of a member^of the executive.   The Kootenay-Boundary division  includes all  the electoral districts of  Grand Forks and Greenwood,  aud will  be in charge of R. F. Green  of Kaslo.  Conventions for nominating candidates  for   the   legislative assembly   will  be  made up of delegates chosen as follows:    In   city  electoral   districts one  delegate for every 50 and fraction of 50  votes polled at the provincial election  held iu 1900, and if the city is divided  into wards the proportion of delegates  for each  ward shall  be based  on  the  vote polled in each  ward at the last  municipal election.' In other than city  electoral districts one delegate for 50 or  fraction of 50 votes* polled  at the provincial election held in  1900,  the delegates to be apportioned to polling places  or as near thereto as will be fair to the  voters of the different neighborhoods.  The election  of delegates shall  be at  public  meetings held at a designated  central place in each  polling division,  or in  each ward in city electoral districts if the city is divided  into wards.  At such   public   meetings only  those  who pledge themselves to vote for the  candidate or candidates selected at the  com ing-con ven tion-shal Ube-en ti tled^to-  vote for delegates. "Two weeks' notice  shall be given of the meetings at* which  delegates are to be elected.   Nominating conventions shall  be held  in  city  electoral districts two days after the  day on which delegates are elected, and  in other electoral districts seven  days  after.   All nominations throughout the  province to be made at a designated  central place in each electoral district  and on the same date.   All notices of  the date of public meetings   for   the  election  of, delegates   to   nominating  conventions,    the   apportionment   of  delegates, and the place and date of  nominating conventions in  the several  electoral districts shall be prepared and  issued by the members of the executive  in charge of the division in  which  the  electoral districts are situated and shall  be over the names of the president and  secretary of  the executive of the Lib-  eralrConservative Union of B. C.   The  above  shows   that   the   organization  machinery of the Conservative party in  British Columbia  is  in  the hands of  men  who are not afraid to allow  the  people to have a voice in nominating  the   party's  candidates.      The   people  alone have the right to elect delegates  to nominating conventions, and if they  exercise   their   rights   the   candidates  nominated should be the best and most  available men in the several districts.  Men who refuse to support the nominees of conventions, are  barred from  participating in   the election  of delegates.   This will probably be unsatisfactory to   the sorehead elements   in  Victoria,  Vancouver .and Nelson, but  will be most satisfactory to those who  are in earnest in supporting the party  line movement.  * * #  The faction in the Liberal party who  is opposed to the leadership of Joseph  PROVINCIAL NOTES.  Many wealthy Swiss farmers have  sold their property in order to emigrate  with their families to Canada.

At a meeting of the executive of the  Socialist party of B.

It is only comparatively of late years  that any particular interest has attached to the advertising of localities  possessed of sufficient scenic and sporting attractiveness to appeal to the  imagination of the tourist and sportsman. Florida has been boomed as a  winter resort to such an extent that it  has become to this continent what the  Riviera is to Europe, and owing to its  geographical position will hold the  ground permanently for the greater  number of winter 'migrators. Colorado  sings its climatic praises on all sides,  while California charms the winter  imagination of the Easterners with  views of mid-winter sea bathing and  flowers that;know no season. These  three states are spending in one way  and. another huge sums of money in  laying before the outside world their  climatic advantages, and there is no  reason to doubt the statements made'  that the money thus expended has been  well laid out.  Following the success that attended  the early .individual and corporeal  efforts in these states, the transportation companies started immense advertising campaigns and flooded the land  with descriptive circulars, booklets and  letters, all be it said beautifully executed, setting forth the attractivess. of the  various regions along the respective  lines. Stimulated by their success, the  nte/unship companies fell into line and  are now in the hey-day of a great campaign to bring prominently before the  tourist, sportsman and health seeker  the advantages of shoit sea,trips for  health sake, winter in the lands of  eternal summer, and summer in the  lands of eternal winter.  'The outcome of all this publicity has  been to arouse the desire to make  known one's existence to the outside  world in some specific manner in the  heart of every city and town having the  . slightest pretension to scenic attractiveness, and Ihe formation of the tourist  association movement has been the  means of revolutionizing the general  attitude towards that large and increasing army of travellers which is turned  loose for about three or' four months in  every year. From the merely ordinary  feeling of welcome has arisen the conviction in the public mind that the  average tourist represents something  more than the money value of his hotel  bill; that while countries like Switzerland, Italy, France, etc., have profited  and still do by millions represented by  the actual travelling disbursements of  the foreign public, in the case of this  continent there is the additional factor  of a possible investor in every visitor to  our midst. As a result, greater efforts  than ever are being put forth by these  associations in order to capture a goodly share of this annual pilgrimage.  Familiarity breeds indifference. What  appears commonplace to the mountain  dweller will send tlie prairie rancher  into rhapsodies, while the magnificent  freedom of the treeless country will be  an unspeakable Joy to the man who  hardly knows what it is to be able to  turn round without, apologizing to a  tree stump. Alan is ever seeking  change; hills look green from afar, as  well set forth in the poem of the "Pine  and the Palm," by Schiller; the pine  sings its dirge in the-far north and  wishes it were the palm on the desert  at the same time,as the latter muse3 on  the joy of living amid the long and  cruel winters of the far north. And  year by year do countless thousands  ficure on the change they will-snatch  by way of a few weeks' travel, and are  commencing even now to figure out the  summer tour, comparing closely the  advantages of the multifarious 'routes  =ancLplaces.  Of all the great railways, none have  surpassed the C.P.R. in the manner  they brought the scenic attractiveness  of their line before tlie public far and  large. They have seized on the practical monetary value of the grand scenery the line passes through and entered  it up in their ledger as an asset of no  mean order. The enormous investments they hnve made in the Rockies  and Selkirks in the way of hostel ties,  all of which are taxed to their utmost  during the travel season, are in themselves evidence that they are paying  their way, which is all that could be  expected.  The position pf Nelson in the matter  is one that calls' for immediate activity  if we are to participate in this year's  tourist activity. The "Kootenay trip,"  which would include the lake trip down  the Arrow lakes to Nelson, Rossland,  and Kaslo, closing with a run over the  Columbia & Western, can hardly be  8iirpased by novelty and attractiveness. Travellers from the South can  make a very interesting round trip by  way of taking in Crank Forks and Its-  public over the C. & W. to Nelson and  to Spokane, while the travellers via the  Crow have a round-trip through Nelson, north to Revelstoke and home via  Calgary.  The local tourist association can profitably take up the matter in earnest  with the assurance that it will receive  the support of the citizens. We cannot  possibly have too many people come to  see us, and money spent in inducing  them to come here will be profitably  invested.  Civic publicity, like unto all other, is  a splendid investment when intelligently managed. Nelson has much to  recommend it from a scenic point of  view. We must not imagine that because what we see around us seems  common place that it will appear so in  the eyes of an outsider. Ruskin saw  beauty oh the muddy old Thames near  Chelsea. Thousands of toilers in the  cities would look upon the Kootenay  river, as seen from the upper town,  with unfeigned delight.  F. W. Pettit.  [In reply to enquiries, E. K. Beeston,  the secretary of the Kootenay Tourist  Association, says they have now completed the pamphlet which appears a  necessity for general advertising of the  district, and it will be in the hands of  the public in a few days. The suggestion regarding round trip tickets is a  very good one. It has already received  attention, and it is expected the C.P.R.  authorities will assist by every means  in their power.���En.]  DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
