 v.--.,, ;��;���  ";ri  ***r??s~ss��f  '/.-���;-.',:j;-:'-^/^: ,  Satwrday Afternoon, April 11, 1903  THE PUBLIC ACCOUNTS PROVE  That Certain  Officials Keep  High   ProvlnclaJ  on tbe Move.  The public accounts of the provinc.  for tlie year ending June 30th, J902,  show that officials who are generally  supposed to be too lazy and indifferent  to perform their duties have been most  zealous. Tlie provincial mineralogist  draws a salary of $4,000 a-year and  traveling expenses.  He is charged with  ri"K 5? ^ t,,at jt is with ^e greatest  dirncul.y hecan he got to go beyond  the limits .of the City of Victoria,  fcmch a charge must be wholly untrue,  for his traveling expenses'for "the vear  e,Ki?g�����"ne30th' 1902- are P��t down  at $1,002.8a. This indicates that the  provincial mineralogist spent more  than half the year awav from Victoria,  and if he was not in Victoria^h'e surely  could not have been putting-in time  elsewhere than   in* examining the for-  - mations of out-of-the-way mineral dis-  * tncts.  , .T.he Public works engineer is another  high official who is credited with- a  hankering after the ease and comforts  of official life within the limits of the  city in which he has luxurious offices  and many clerks to do his bidding.  Yet lie must have traveled during the  year covered by the public accounts referred to above, for he is credited with  having spent $1,542.75 for traveling expenses, to say nothing of the disbursements made for/buggy hire when on  trips through the'country."  .The inspector of all public offices in  the province is an official whose duties  keep him continually on the move. He  is compelled to use all  kidds of rrans-  ��0���V, 0ne day he may be ��di"g i" a  C.P.R.

NELSON SUCCESS CLUB.  Preparations for the "at home" to be  held in Fraternity hall next Thursday  evening have been completed. Cards  of admission may be obtained from anv  member of the committee. The leader  of the orchestra has promised a specially good program. The K. of P. hall  will be arranged for cards, and everybody is assured of a srood time.  The chess tournament was concluded  on Monday last. Messrs. Jowett and  Harbour tied for first place, with eleven  games won and two lost. In deciding  the tie, Mr. Jowett won from Mr. Harbour in eighteen moves.  A quoit tourney has been in progress  during the past week. Over thirty  entries were received and some of the  matches 'have been keenly con tested ._  George Nunn has kindly offered a prize  for the winner.   Tlie final games will be  ores, without which���speuking for myself only���1 believe every mine in Rossland will be closed up and abandoned  within comparatively few months.    '  "This is plain talk, but it is intended  for those who apparently think we' are  afraid to abandon .the mines and will  therefore yield something to their factious opposition.  "The financial statement shows that'  during 1902, $238,598 was spent on "the  mines, and that the net receipt' sales  totalled only $203,249. The min&.is now  in debt to the extent of $683^101, as  against $641,518 at the end of 1901.'-;  Now, in the first -place, we should  like,to ask Mr. Blackstock why that  annual meeting was not held, at what  we are informed was its proper date,  that is, a fortnight earlier, on the 10th  or llth .ultimo? Why was it postponed  to coincide with the opening of the convention of the British Colunibia Mining  Association? Was it-in order thatjthe  wailings of a disappointed Toronto land-  shark might have'some "influence on  certain matters'discussed'at1 that ,con-,  vention?' 'Or was it��� come, now,','Mr.  Blackstock; be frank���part-of a gigantic scheme -to."bean-War-'Eagle '"stock  with an only too��� evident-ulterior 'pur-  Dose-?-/ Mc."r_irby,' mari8k��er;thVBriti8h.

H��v.  was tlie meeting postponed? . And whv  did Mr. Blackstock disgrace' biff-manhood and discredit his "superfine Ontario  intellect by such  a torrent of unwarrantably lachrymose oratory over the  sad fate of a,niine which '.his own 'published  reports.*show   to ' be * doing Tremarkably well, and in a fair way to do  better?  To a man of Mr. - Blackstock's high  must in future refrain from these funereal flights of oratory.*-' I  Moreover, childishly'amateur though  the worthy Blackstock?s procedure was,  it arouses evil memories. There was a  certain mine in the United States twenty-five or thirty years'ago, whose owners used to have periodical fits of de-  J pression^like Mr. Blackstock's. Then,  in their grief,; they would" shut up..'the  mine and buy'in the shares at* the price  of waste paper. Then a j"new vein of  fabulous richness" would-be discovered  in Hie mine,-an'd the shares would go  away up to. fancy figures. Then the  accommodating vein would "pinch out"  or -'fault,',',and the shares would again  be bought in,like waste paper, till the  vein chose "to" be "rediscovered," when  prices again went(_ky-hkh. *It was a  funny liLLlegame of financial.ping pong,  and several eminejnt 'persons concerned  in it, among them" Messrs}-Flood, Mackay, Fair���wilPMr.jBlackstdek please  correct us if we are,wranjr?���and other  well-known men became millionaires to  anj-exaggerated degree. 'jOn' the other  hand, many' thousands of people' lost  their little all and")were reduced to  beggary.;and .starvation \ through < the  name of the mine^and theVpecuIiar oc:  cnVrences we, have-referred- to. They  made stir enough.in "thei. day  Now,rwe*would nofr'feir worldst'sug-  c-ct that there'-*is anything 'analogous  between the despicable-inethods of the  deplorable-gang of "pirajfes whose machinations we ,have described, and Mr.  Blackstock's**;unlucky -ijorpnto speech:'  Notat all; *\ve merely mention this  ancient crime.as a curn-usand unsavory  example of one way <if handling the  mineral industry.   We will,  however,  ly weath would, in a very short time,  be treated to an excessively embarras-*  sing interview with the crown prosecutor.  Finally, let us> look at one or two of  the weeping Blackstock's remarks, ** because it is always sad to see a good  man so choked with grief that he can  not tell the truth. Mr. Blackstock said  he had met with -opposition from the  government. Unless he refers to the  trifling matter of the^two per cent tax  ���which is about to''be removed���it is  difficult to understand what he is talking about.  Then he says he has had opposition  from the1 municipalities. We have  looked into that matter. We have  not apace to go into details, nor do we  think Mr. Blackstock will ever supply  them to the public, but we may say  that it is rather hard to blame "the  municipalities for their entirely natural  reluctance to be forced into giving  something for nothing.  Then he says he has had ��� opposition  from the smelters. How? When the'  War Eagle was bought by Mr. Black-  stock and"-his apsocuates, the smelter  charges weie between' $8 and $11 (we  forget the exact figure.) Now they are  only $47 Jf that is what the cultured  and" truthful Blackstock calls "opposition," we know quite a lot of people  who would like some more of it.  Then he says be has met, with opposition in getting water-to mill, his ..low-  grade ores. Well, we .have studied^ the  public utterances of Mr. Blackstock and  his lieutenant, Mr.,Kirby, and we have'  come to the conclusion-that, they don't  need any water. They themselves can  supply it. -- By weeping. We never before met two business men who could  turn on tlie waterworks -.so' effectually..  'A, good tearful speecli.J;once a'month'  from'..either ,Mr.'Kirby ,vor Mr. Black-  'Stock^.ouglifeto^ee]^  'thoT'orighry^dreiicliett^'and le\vea*han"d-,  some   bal-t.nde   over -for* watering "the  StOfik. /   <* ���      '   : - ,  . . ,  Thus we see that, thongh Mr. Blackstock's Toronto ��� speech was soaked in  tears,* yet the] statements made in it  will not hold water. * Thip is very unfortunate, as it leaves Mr. Blackstock  completely ..undefended against the  grave "suspicion* of .his-.mqtiyes .which  his wild and unsupported "remarks" on  the 25th ultimo have excited throughout British Columbia.���British Columbia Mining Lxchange.  In All Lands Where the Law Is Printed In the  English Language.  After the recent aldermanic by-election in the East ward, assertions were  made by the friends of the defeated  candidate that all those who voted for  driven out of  seems that the  threat was metmt, for brick layers and  stone masons, who belong to the local  union, no longer   need expect ��� to get  work from the defeated candidate, who  is a   local   contractor.     With   "Jim"  Dunsmuir closing down his coal mines  because his miners   insist on   having  freedom of conscience; with the C.P.R.  threatening to remove its repair shops  from Revelstoke because its workmen  there exercise the privileges of freemen ; -  and with a building contractor and his  friends at Nelson threatening to force  men out of business because of exercising their   rights   of   citizenship,/ the  province is indeed in a bad way: .But,  somehow, the people have   a way of  settling with pig-headed men, whether  they be mine, owners, railway mariagT  ers,     contractors,     or      workingmen.  "Jim"    Hill   and   Pierpont   Morgan  thought  they   were   bigger   than  the  United States, but the-courts quietly  game them a tip the other day that the  people were still the rulers.     "Jim"  Dunsmuir  and   the   C.P.R.   magnates  will get a similar tip one of these fine  days, and they will crawl down and be  good.    Of course, Hill and Morgan and*  Dunsmuir and the C.P.R. magnates are  small fry as compared with tbe'mighty *  men   who   backed   "Billy" ��� Gillett   n  Nelson for alderman, and it is just possible that the world will come to a  standstill if the people do not meekly  do   their bidding.    The Tribune, predicts,  however, that   the people-will  continue to rule in- Nelson  and  every-    '  where else in the,world where the laws  are printed in the English language.  t  ,-.1  ) ^  I     I  DOHINION DAY CELEBRATION.  played off early next week,  The gymnasium is now in working  order.

Traves  returns   tonight from,  where he'has  been for  Oone to the Coast.  Kootenay loses two of its bright newspapermen in the removal from Sandon  and New Denver of William MacAdams  and R. T.. Lowery. They go to Vancouver to establish a weekly newspaper. They may not be appreciated at  the Coast at their worth, because the  Coast, in some respects, is as narrow as  Ontario, and its newspapers when not  stilted and dry are decidedly amateurish and notoriously untruthful. Lowery and MacAdams have a style that is  original. , It is not the style of the canting hypocrite, although it is at times  seemingly barbarous.  R. Thompson leaves early next week  for Nakusp, where he will be employed  in his business as painter.  W. F. Teetzel' leaves for the Coast  tonight, and expects to remain in  Victoria for a week or ten davs.  Henry Bruce, whojias long long been  a resident of Nelson,-leaves next week  to locate at Midway,  in  the Boundary  ilistrict.  "Silver King Mike" was treating his  friends today to Passover delicacies,  and some of those-who partook passed  over���to bed.  John Sniallwood; merchant- tailor, is  ready for business with a, fine stock of  spring and summer suitings. His place  of business is on Ward street, near the  new postoffice building.  , R. W. Day has been appointed inspector of agencies for the Imperial Life  Insurance.'Company, with headquarters  at Edmonton, Alberta. He will leave  Nelson for Edmonton on Thursday.  John J. Malone and Alexander McDonald, and other Kootenay and Yale  speculators, expect to make a cleanup  from lands they have acquired at Tete  Juene Cache on the Fraser river, in  Cariboo district.  For the first time in the historv of  Nelson the work of the countv court is  up to date. At the sitting of" the court  on Wednesday jud��e Forin cleared up  every case on the docket, and was,  figuratively speaking, presented by  registrar Simpkins ��with the usual  white gloves.  Coal and coke is beginning to arrive  from the Crow's Nest Pass coal mines,  and within~thirty davs the smelters at  Nelson, Trail, Grand Forks, Greenwood, and Boundary Falls will be running lead stacks and copper furnaces  having a daily capacity of 4,000 tons of  ore*  A number of the aldermen, accompanied by the mayor and the city engineer, took a trip down to the "powerhouse site on Kootenay river yesterday.  On their return they said work would  be commenced as scion as ^possible.  Consulting engineer Riblet has approved of the plans as]far as tliey are  completed.

President Estes of jthe Brotherhood  of Railway Employees will address a  public meeting in Nelson on Monday  night. He is a good speaker, and will,  no doubt, present the Aide fjf the fight  his organization is having with the  ��!.P.R. in the most (favorable light.  The members of the Nelson branch of  of the organisation hav<i conducted the  fight with the, company, in the fairest  possible way, and byidoing so have  won the good opinion; of the people  generally, even those who are not favorable to labor organizations. Mayor  Rose will preside at the (Monday night  meeting. ',  The People of Creston Indignant.  Some ten years ago the Davis-Say-  ward outfit secured leases on thousands  of acres of timber land throughout  West Kootenay, and among other tracts  one covering the land around the town  of Creston, although thetown was not  then in existence. It seems that some  of the land in the. limit at Creston has  been crown granted to settlers, and tbe  settlers have been selling the timber to  a local sawmill. The Sayward outfit  have taken steps to prevent this and  have secured an injunction against  the settlers and the owners of the sawmill. This action has caused considerable feeling at Creston, and an indignation meeting was held on Thursday, at  which strong resolutions were adopted,  and the resolutions hav�� been forwarded to the provincial government.  The sawmill was the only operating industry at Creston, and its closing down  is felt by the people of the town.  Back from England.  L. Ernst, president, and J. L. Stamford, director, of the Northwest Coal  and Coke Company, Limited, returned  to Nelson this week from England,  where they have been on business of  the company. In London they succeeded in financing the company with  the assistance of captain Goodwin, who  had been in England sometime paving  the way for them. Arrangements have  been made for English engineers to  come out, and by the first of May they  will be on-the ground���to-lay-out-the  necessary work for tbe proper opening  up of the' coal niines, and also make the  final survey for the Northwestern railway which is to be built to connect the  mines with the C.P.R. They have also  arranged for sufficient capital to dp all  the work outlined, and have made all  the payments to the government required up to date. They had a pleasant  time with captain Goodwin, who spent  six or eight months in Nelson last year.  He is expected back again this year,  and it is reported be will not return  alone. The trip, although very successful, was a very short one, Mr.  Ernst only spending eleven days in  London. The weather was very fine,  and-he greatly enjoyed the short visit.  Mr. Ernst said that in order to let their  friends in Nelson participate in their  good fortune, the company intend to  offer a small block of treasury stock  here shortly.  Turned Down.  The provincial executive of the Lib-  ertyj party have turned down the Senk-  lejprTempleman-Sniith crowd by refusing to to call a convention of the party.  The Liberals of the province may not  all be favorable to the leadership of  Joseph Martin, but 90 per cent of the  party are in favor of treating Mr.  Martin fairly, which the Senkler-Tem-  pleman-Sniith crowd are unwilling to  do.   Has Sold Out.  H. T. Irvine has disposed of the  American Shoe. Store and will devote  his time to the Alberta Coal & Coke  Company. The store he occupied, is  now occupied by Mrs. Enfield, whose  stock of millinery is second to none on  Baker street.  , The general executive eommittee met  last night at the city hall. "Mayor Rose  was chairman and."Fred'Starkey'was  appointed permanent secretary for the  celebration.* The minutes-.of the,'last  meeting were read and-approved.

R. McLean, H. Houston, F. Phillips, Bruce W.hite, R. H. Williams, and  Bruce Heathcote.  The following list of events was  drawn up: Rock drilling, baseball,  lacrosse, firemen's races, rifle and gun  shooting, military drill and sham fight,  Caledonian sports and children's races,  etc. H. Houston was asked to correspond regarding baseball matches with  the secretaries of clubs in neighboring  towns, and chief Lillie was asked to do  the same for the firemen's races.  ���Considerable- discussion���then���took-  place regai ding the giving of a grand  military display, and it was suggested  that there should be a sham fight and  shooting /matches, that teams from  RbsBland, Trail, Grand Forks, Greenwood, Kaslo, Slocan, and New Denver  should be asked to compete, and that  captain Macdonell be asked to try and  get the outside companies of the Rocky  Mountain Rangers to help in the sham  fight, etc.  There will be no water sports, and all  sports which in former experience have  proved unattractive will be left out1 of  the program.  Alderman Irving suggested that a  large number of celebration envelopes  should be printed, and distributed by  the merchants, and it was resolved that  this'should be done at once.  A committee to take charge of the  Caledonian games will be appointed  later. Tlie children's sports will be left  to C. A. Waterman.  The mpeting adjourned to meet at  the call of the chairman.  ���y1, * *-r*5f     t �����-  ^1  W. P. JH. Convention.  The fifth annual convention of District No. 6 of the.

JOHN HOUSTON, Editor.  SATURDAY, APRIL 11, 1903  The Liberals of the eleven electoral  districts in East and West Kootenay  and the Boundary section of Yale are  talking of forming a combination so as  to better-combat Coast political. influences. The Coast is divided into two  more or less hostile camps. One camp  is made up of men from the Island.  The other is made ilp of the Lower  Mainland politicians. Neither side will  recognize the' ''upper country" politicians, and the Liberal politicians of  the "upper country" are talking combine to force recognition. They are  right; the people of the Kootenay and  Boundary^an_only__secure_fair_treat-  ment politically by  supporting   men  who stand for the "upper country."  The assessment act will not pass the  house as introduced. It proposes to  raise the tax on mineral claims from  twenty-five cents to fifty cents an acre,  and that there shall be no time for redeeming claims once they are advertised and sold for taxes. Tlie member  for Nelson riding has given notice of an  amendment, which in effect is that the  rate shall be twenty-five cents an acre,  as at present, and that nine months  shall he given in which to redeem after  , a sale is made for taxes. The member  for Nelson will insist that crown-granted mineral claims shall be treated as  real estate. ���  *' -Word conies from Vancouver that,  notwithstanding the boasting of the  C.P.R. officials, they are not making  much headway. These officials are employing broken-down old countrymen  and worthless sons of fathers who made  names for themselves in Canada .as  clerks, arid are boarding them and the  freight handlers in two-old river steamers tied up at the wharf. None of the  C.P.R* local boats have regular crews.  The statements made in the local and  also in the Vancouver press as to the  presence of the member for Nelson at a  conference of Conservatives held in  Vancouver last week, in which, he was  said to have expressed his views regarding his running at the next election, were altogether false. No such  conference was held, and no such statements were.made.  There is an element at the Coast who  want the question of redistribution of  members in the legislative assembly  reopened. * They openly assert that  Kootenay is not entitled to nine men-  bers. This element is made up of the  ^-'01d-Turner-Gang"-an"d~tlie_ Temples  man Liberals.  The member for Nelson is asking  for an appropriation of .*|!40,000 for  the new court house. The plans are  ready and if carried out in full the  building will be a credit to the government who. furnished the money and to  the City of Nelson. The government  should have no hesitation in granting  the money. Nelson has waited long  and patiently," and is entitled to a  building which will have proper accommodation for the work to be done  in it. Every grand jury and every presiding judge for years past have condemned the present building in no  feeble terms.  A complete outfit of new type, has  been purchased for The Tribune and ia  expected to arrive in Nelson on Monday next. The finest press in ihe  Kootenay district has been erected, and  the paper will appear in its new dress  and its accustomed size next Saturday.  The Nelson Economist, merely to  show gratitude for the financial assistance rendered it during a late municipal contest, is booming an innocent  young lawyer for the nomination of the  Beer and Mugwump party for Nelson  riding at the next provincial election.  Joseph Martin, the leader of the Liberal party in British Columbia, seems  to he able to control Liberal associations everywhere except at Vancouver.  In that town the Liberal association is  controlled at Kelly, Douglas & Co.,  wholesale grocers.  Several of the most prominent mine  owners of the province have asked that  the present system of mine taxation be  left as it is. This seems strange, after  so, much has been said as to the unfairness of the tax.  A mining commission will not be appointed to revise the mining laws of the  province.  �� BY THE ROADSIDE;  ��  So we are to have a celebration on  Dominion Day. How delightful? The  very thought that I shall probably be  permitted to gaze once more on that  up-to-date artistic creation���a business  float���is already filling me with joyful  anticipation. Something akin to that  experienced in my boyhood days when  sizing up the situation of a pastrycook's  window on the one hand and ray slender financial resources on the other. I  don't think the shows of 1809 and 1900  have been surpassed in snap and vim ;  possibly better times account for that.  Any way,* fjhis year if good music cannot  be obtained better have a couple of  piano organs, and as for fireworks, so  called, a good bonfire on Granite mountain would be far more exciting than  the fire squibbing we have been treated  to at the last two celebrations.  The spectacle chronicled in the papers  of some 1,500 known men retiring from  the world on Palm Sunday for a week's  pennance at one of the R. C. churches  in New York is certainly, to say the  least, extraordinary. It is looked upon  as a revival of Lent and held up as evidence against the oft repeated statement as to the decadence of the church.  On the other hand, quite a number of  society people will sympathize with the  old monk in the golden legend musing  on Lent in the cellar surrounded by  hogsheads of wine:  ~ "lam glad we are through with this tedious  Lent;      ,  Fasting is all very well for those  Who have to deal with invisible foes,  But I am sure it does not agree  With a quiet peaceful man like me,"  But, then, (if we had no Le,nt we  would have.no Easter contrast, and to  many the penance (mild as it is) is  worth all the joy that the Easter Sunday gowning brings!  Tlie "impossible man" is with us.  This time it's about wood and the best  ways and means of heading off ( the  rapacity of those awful wood dealers in  the city. Someone has suggested that  wood be sold 6n weight. The idea is  too funny and! enough to bring a grin  on an Egyptian mummy. I see in  imagination, jif such a course were  adopted, firewood pickling tanks^down  on the flats, and the air full of hostile  mutterings from those who do not indulge in a Chinaman or a gas stove.  ��./__��. - -i.     ,  ��� -When I was in San Francisco eight  years ago the. Market Street Railway  Company held �� tramway - charter on  Mission street1. In order to hold this  charter the law required, that-.'a daily  service in each',direction once a! day be  maintained, so it came to pass that a  one-horse v "owl", car holding*; about  eight people was sent perambulating  up and down<once a day, religiously--  Tlie- local transportation company  might take tlie tip���saw the: present,  car in two and hire one of Steeper's  twenty-five dollar pack shaganappis  and maintain la service free from the  dictates of tlie Bonnington octopus.  It might run to suit the early morn,  mid-day, and supper requirements of  business toilers', and incidentally await  the retiring of ihe nightly bridge party  at the Club.      j  In a moment of simple child-like  trust, common j to my nature, I was  induced ^by a reverend gentleman to  sign a p-ftition ia favor of government  regulation of Sunday observance. Since  doing so I have Lad a kind of uneasy  feeling that my petition is hardly in  line-with hiy vievs of the liberty pf the  subject. Quite a number of us-think  that because a nian does' not care for  church is no reason why he should disturb those whojdo, and possibly the  yellsJncidental-to-and���apparently_in^  separable from i baseball game'mity  become a disturbing factor to .the peace  of the- immediate neighborhood. On  the other hand,; there is a suspicion,  not without soine reason, that, this  attempted legislation may result in an  effort to restrict our individual liberties. Over-zealous ministers should  realize the fact that they will never  make people church-goers by force of  law,' and always bear in mind, as is  well illustrated" in ministers' families,  that where religion is forced on children with whom it does not find ready  acceptance, they invariably at maturity drift into muddy indifference and  too often rank materialism.-�����  A subscriber writes: "I wish to send  my boy to school at Nelson. In addition to the ordinary tuition, can you  inform me if pupils are drilled and  otherwise taught general discipline."  I am afraid that I shall have to admit  that neither of these^essentials form an  addition to the curriculum of the  schools here. Yet, from enquiries  made among parents, they are all apparently a unit on the desirability of  these essentials. Very possibly if a  system of discipline-vwere adopted our  city fathers would he,Vspafed the. trouble of manoeuverihgya jgurfew by-law  and the parents bemoaning the waywardness of precocious childhood in this  communitv. :  Wanderer.  ������ * ������'���'���  FOR SALE.

At the council meeting held on Monday last there were present the mayor,  and aldermen Irving, Bird, Selous and  Gilker.  Mayor Rose reported that the public  works committee had decided to put in  the lower of the two bridges suggested  by the city engineer,at the last council  meeting. On motion it was decided to  call for tenders for tho opening up of  the lane between Ward and Josephine  streets and building the necessary  bridge.  W. W. West wrote asking if he might  lease 150 feet of water-front between  Cedar and Park streets for a wood yard  and building. It wns decided to lease  100 feet to Mr. West.  An amusing discussion arose on the  appointment of poundkeeper, alderman  Selous objecting to the dogs running at  large which have special dislikes to  school teacher8 and aldermen, and suggesting that an active boy would make  a small fortune catching stray chickens,  the owners of which would, under the  act, have to pay 26 cents each for their  return. Applications for the position  of poundkeeper must be Bent it at once,  and it was left to the mayor to appoint.  T. M. Ward wrote stating that owing  to his business affairs' he would not  have sufficient time to devote to the  assistant assessorship, and therefore he  declined the position. After some discussion it was moved by alderman  Selous", seconded by alderman Irving,  that W. A. Jowett be appointed assistant assessor.   Carried unanimously.  C.P.R. super in ten dene Downie wrote  that the $50 voted at the last council  meeting towards completing the crib-  work for protecting Cottonwood creek  bank was much too small. It would  take $150 even if the railway company  supplied the timber free, which they  were willing to do. On .motion it was  decided that the city engineer should  expend $100 independently of , the  C. P. R. in strengthening " the bank  above the Sherbrooke hotel, and that  Mr. Downie be notified to that effect.  The city solicitor wrote, in reply to an  enquiry, that the council had not"power  to pass a by-law enforcing wood measurement unless a regular market was  established. The council decided, on  motion of alderman Selous, seconded by  alderman Irving, "that the city weigh-  master.and some person employed in  the neighborhood of the city wharf be  appointed as official measurers, to  measure all wood when requested and  issue tickets certifying that such had  been done." This will only apply to  four-foot wood.  ' At the request of the city engineer,  the council agreed to expend a further  sym of $150 in repairing the upper portion of Cottonwood creek.

Materialism may in some lands  have undermined the faith ; the world  lient oir financial and social expansion  may at times forget the higher duties;  iudifference may blind the mind to the  loftier problems of life; but humanity  ever cry lor the, ideal at whose shrine it  can worship, and so long,as that cry  ,goes up will that ideal be presented in  the form'best suited to the particular  people's understanding.  -"The fact that Easter is a shifting festival, in addition to other evidence,  points-to an astronomical "origin., This  is the season of the passing of the sun  through the vernal equinox,' of the  :a  or   in  picture  causes   that  of others for his own selfish pleasure"on  the rest day does not deserve to have its  privilege's.1 This proposed law gives to  every man the right to.use the day as  he shall, see fit,  provided  that in so  doing he. does not interfere 'with  the  rights and privileges of others, just as I  have a perfect right to keep chickens, J  but none to pnrmit my chickens to rout  up my neighbor's garden.   Let me give  itemised reason's, for sighing this petition : (1) The Lord's Bay rest is a British and Canadian institution; (2) It is  a physical necessity, proven   by exact  scientific experiments; races that keep  the day are the superior races; those  who donot, inferior���Chinese, Hindus,  etc.; (3) from a family and social standpoint the day is one  of  tlie  greatest  boons of life;-(4) He who works seven  days a weeks robs his fellowman of one  day's work a week���i.e., where GO men  work seven days a week, 70 would-be  employed ;   Is"(this jusl ?   (5) Whereas  this law would not compel any- man  to  be religious or moral, yet it gives him a  chance of being so; (6) Quite- a large  illers in  this province believe   that  back  of all: these  utilitarian argument is a  Divine command, '-.Remember the Sabbath day  to  to keep" it holy" f that it is,part of that  decalogue which lies at the basis of our  civilized   life   and -as   imperative,   for  �����***��**:  ing of the sap and general*' perceptible | P.���^ .of th,c t!w?,U',rsin.  activity in the field of verdant' Nature.  Whatmore fitting than this to draw  the mind of man to the contrast of the  rising of the life principle in the resting plant, tree and seed, and the rising  of'the latent higher aspirations in the  human heart.  An old axiom of Hermetic philosophy  was "As above,'so. below," meaning  that   the" material   world, was but  CQlirse- replica   of  the  beyond,  si mider   illustration    is   the  thrown on-the canvas  by  are unseen from the-auditorium.'. What  we see.around  is the effect of,   to us,  an unseen cause.   Therefore, is the rising of the sap and the glorious outburst  ���" ' ' ie  of Nature at this season typical  of ' tl  ���rising of the better man, and was beautifully caught by Tennyson in the lines:  "O, for a man to rise in ine,  0 That the man I am may cease to be."  Ancient   Egyptian    records    throw  some light on the rites and ceremonies  that were carried out in the  pyramids.  One of which has considerable** bearing  oh the Kaster festival and will -be'more  fully recognized by those who look beneath and seek to study more closely  that temple not made,with hands.  The  neophyte or candidate, three davs prior  to the exact, date of the vernal equinox,  was thrown into a trance and remained  in that state for three days.   The body  was then stretched on   the ground  in  the form of a cross and in such, a,  position that tbe  first  rays  of  the  Easter  morning sun fell on him, and when the  glorious, orb   of   day   had   completely  arisen tbe neophyte was  raised  from a  * figurative death to the fulness of lifts���  from tbe death in the  bondage of the  de*'!) into tbe life of emancipation   from  its* thraldom.     ��� ---���-.   -���  festivals have ever befen associated  with great religions. They serve to  keep green the deeper objects of life  and stimulate the emotional nature in  man. The remains and historical  records of all past civilizations give  abundant, testimony to the fact that far  back in the night of time commemorative days were set apart aa days of religious exercises followed by geneial  ���recreation.  The churches that devote large attention to these annual festivals seem  to show more vitality than those who  have chosen to ignore them. The  abandonment by any nation of the old  landmarks, as in. the case of. France  today, is a sad spectacle. Whatever  faults the'-Roman Catholic church may  have committed in,that land, the present policy of suppression carried on by  a materialistic government, is sounding  tbe death knell of that greaV country.  Its decadence has already been sounded  in its utimistakeable depopulation, and  these mad causes will bring the inevitable effect in the shape of obliteration, y .  -    *:  The falling a.way of a people from.the  J^tjy.,.u]e^j_jjand.e^-Idb.wii"J_^way^bL  sacred books is to lose touch with that  power which is the inspirational pivot  of those minds who have in the past  directed the destinies 'of..nations. A  recognition of this will go far to fan  into a flame, in many, the dying embers  of the simple childhood faith too often  forgotten in .this mad age of financial  and social aggrandizement, anil- help to  longevity and happiness, as "Thou  shalt not steal," or 'Thou shalt not  commit adultery," or "Thou shalt do  no murder"; (7)'Should any man wish  to keep any othe-.'day for religious observances, this law would not interfere  with his liberty to,do so; all it determines is, that'as tbe majority prefer  the first day for their rest day, it would  be impossible from a commercial standpoint to legislate for small minorities,  as banks,, etc.,'would lie placed in a  .peculiar pbsitipn. Therefore, for all o,f  these reasons,-" taken individually, oi; as  a whole, we'plead for those who value  their privileges, to support this petition.

History proves that  where  there  are none to conserve the Lord's Day to  those who possess its blessed privileges,  it is gradually and surely swept away  by the inundations of greed of wealth  aiid greed of pleasure.   The Lord's Day  is   one of the  heritages ' of Christian  civilization.     It   is   not so   in   India,  China, Africa, etc.   The proposed legislation in no way interferes  with  individual liberty, but conserves it.

Nelson is the only city in, the province that furnishes ,_water for use in  provincial buildings and offices free, of  charge.  Dr. Forin, who ha�� had charge of the  Miners' "Union hospital at Slocan City  for two years, has decided to remove to  Edmonton, Alberta.  Harry McLeod left on Wednesday for  Port Huron, Windsor, Toronto, etc.,  on business connected with the Alberta  Coal & Coke Company.  The macadamized streets of Nelson  could be improved through the employment ot a half dozen men who know  bow to use hoes and shovels.  1  The road between Trout Lake and  Ferguson and Thompson's Landing is  almost impassable.   An .effort is being  made to get it in shape for traffic.  It is to be honed the Dominion Day  celebration committee will not waste  any of the funds collected in such  amusements as shooting on rifle ranges.  J. W. Richards leaves. Nelson next  week to take charge of one of*- Slater's  shoe stores in .Montreal. He has resigned his position at the Royal shoe  store.  E. E.. Smitheringale, of the Slocan  Drill, is acting'ua editor of .The Daily  News, in the absence of .editor Deane,  who is at Kamloops erecting political  fences. . ,  W., A. Jowse,tt, .has^ been - appoin ted  assistant assessor, and will begin 'making the assessment of Nelson for 1903 as  soon as the necessary rolls can be procured. /  ' P. Burns & Co. have decided to" put-  in cold storage plants,at Fernie and  Revelstoke. The firm have cold storage plants at Nelson "and Vancouver,  and one at Calgary.  The Women's Guildof St." Saviour's  church are having a sale of work and  afternoon tea on Thursday next, April  16th, in the afternoon, from 3 to 6  o'clock.   All are invited. 1  Mayor Archer of Kaslo had to resign  his office because the firm of which he  is a member sold the city supplies. A  new election has been ordered, and  Archer says he will be a candidate for  re-election.  The finance committee, of the city  council met on1 Thursday and considered how a ha*nk_:wgjdrjftypO32,0Q(^  "could'bewipedydut without collecting  back taxes and rates. They adjourned-  without adopting any of the schemes  suggested.       / ,   .  Locally, politics are quiet, so quiet  that a syndicate of Conservative and  Mugwump lawyers has been formed to  put life into tlie business. The members of the syndicate expect to get all  the plums once their machine gets in  working order.  T. G. Roy returned to Nelson from  the Silver Hill Mining Company's property on Crawford creek, about 12 miles  from Crawford bay. He.found about  16 feet of solid snow on the cabins, and  says there is more snow on the high  mountains than he ever saw before at,  this time of the year.  Police commissioner Marks has returned from a trip to Spokane. While  there he made a close study of the  methods of the Spokane police department, and claims that Nelson's department, in several respects, is better  managed than that, of the metropolis of  Eastern Washington..

Alderman McCallum of Slocan City  has resigned for business reasons, and  an election to fill the' vacancy has been  ordered. If he will accept, "John Bull  will probable be McCallum's successor.  The people of Revelstoke have been  warned by the C.P.R. magnates that  the repair shops at that place may be  moved to some other place because the  company has so much trouble there  with their men. The men of the mountains, for some reason, will not be  driven like sheep, all of which is distasteful to the magnates.  The local C.P.R. strike situation remains unchanged, as far as the men  who quit work are concerned. None of  the men who quit at Nelson have returned to work, and.none of them will  until the strike is settled. Some of  their places have been filled by importations from Seattle and other points  in the United States, and these importations are being housed and fed in  cars in the yards.
