C. P. II. officials and friends arrived in
Kaslo lust Friday night from Nelson

President Van Horne accorded the

other eminent Conservative and ex-
promier, he has viewed the mining
wonders of this region, Tho two met
quite by chance, and were together a
few days only. Their joint visit has
no political significance. Sir Mackenzie Howell had ewie on to the coast before reaching Kaslo. His visit is solely for ploasurc. aud to better acquaint
himself with the public needs of British Columbia. Both Sir Charles and
Sir Mackenzie���tho former in the
house and the latter in tho senate-
may be relied upon hereafter to champion the Kootenay's interests from an
acquaintance formed by intelligent and
careful observation of its resources.

resemblance to Gladstone, but his physique is heavier. In several ways he

Tbo OlttlOOk for The Conservatives.
Being asked what bo considered to bo
tiie outlook for the party of whieh ho is
tho recognized leader, Sir Charles
said:
"There is not tho slightest doubt in
my mind, but that the Conservatives
will be returned to power in the Dominion at the next election. Mr. Laurier has obtained a temporary ascendency by the arts of thc small politician,
but he will lind out that it pays better
iu tho long run to bo perfectly frank
with the people. His party has not
fulfilled a single one of its many
pledges made, to attain power, and I
doubt very much if it can. Luck is
just now with tho Liberals, as thoy
happen to be in power while Canada is
prospering through the high price of
wheat and other causes, and many un-
thinking people are ready to credit a
party with whatever e.hanee prosperity
it eia\ encounter. But tiie utter lack
of a dellnito po.'iey will inevitably force
itself to the front, with the result that.
the Liberals will have nothing to go
boiuie the poopio with, ohoiie.'.t iiine."

Tin, Ci,billot Meeting.
London, Oct. 18.���The British cabi-
inet this morning held its first annual
meeting at the foreign ollice. Premier
Salisbury presided, and all tho ministers except Lord James, Chancellor
Duchy of Lancaster, Viscount Cross,
Lord Privy Seal and Mr.Walter Long,
president of the board of agriculture,
were in attendance, The mooting lasted two hours.
It is understood the question of reopening the Indian mints for the free
coinage of silvor was not decided, but
the matter was discussed and will
shortly form tiie subject of further
communication between the chancellor
of the exchequer and the United States
monetary commission. It is believed
the British government has reached a
decision not to enter into the international monetary conference. Further
meetings with Ihe American commissioners will be held simply because
they have beer: previously arranged,
as cabled last week,
Messages received from the American commission say they have received
no information with regard to the action taken at tho cabinet council today.
but they hoar that a statement will be
issued next week to the effect that tho
government will make no suggestion, to I j)^e
thc Bank of feiglanU as to any altera-'
tion of its preseiK, reserve. The government can not in any event do r.io'.'c
than mako a recommendation to the
bank, so the statement that the cabinet
had decided that the Bank of England
should maintain a full gold standard is
incorrect.
Owing to the difficulties raised in India, and the exposition in other quarters, the cabinet felt that they are unable to give an immediate understand.
ing in regard to tho Indian mints, but
they are apparently not Indisposed to
enter Into further negotiations, and it
is expected that as tho outcomo of today's cabinet council the United States
commissioners will shortly have another interview with Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach, and that diplomatic communications will be continued with the
foreign powers rnoro immediately concerned in the rehabilitation of silver.
Co,i,men' s ofthe Sunday Tlmea.
London, Oct. 17.���The Sunday Times
in a review of the bimetallic agreement, says:
"It is arc open secret that when l_ng-
land Wfts asked to join the bimetallic
agreement the government replied that,
public opinion did not favor any alteration of the basis of England's curren'
cy, but having an overwhelming in' -

assist in the gootl work, basing it: a -
tlon on the resolution unanimously
passed by l lie bouse of commons, On
this promise Mr. Wolcott set to work.
His chances of success seemed almost
hopeless, !,ui lie succoodod in obtaining the promise of Prance and the
United states to co-operate by opening
their mints to silver. In both respects
the unexpected happened. The city
revolted, thanks to the letter published
at the time, and egged by artful newspaper comments, an OUtcry was raised
whieh resulted, first, in a meeting of
the blearing house bankers, and, next,
in a petition to tho chancellor of the
exchequer. In spite, of all this uproar,
we do not think the protest has much
Influence, -it so clearly bore tho impress of class ideas that the government, whose duty it is to safeguard the
interests of the whole, was not duly
impressed.
"Ajgainst this the city of. Lancashire
weighs in with its millions of worker-,
all well disciplined, raising a crusade
against what they termed Che selfishness of the London bankers,  who at*
sumed to dictate to the government
upon what is really an Imperial <|V>-
tiou, and which they claim shall be settled to suit their interest.
"Unfortunately the government is
menaced with obstruction In a more
unexpected quarter, in a iong state
paper the India government, puis forth
tho reasons for its reluctuance, and
avers that the Indian currency experiment has reached a point where it will
become a phenomenal success. An exchange rate of lid per rupee has already been touched and will soon be
permanently established, the rupee
will eease to fluctuate, and that desideratum, a gold standard without, gold,
will appear, The India govornment
goes further and alleges that the reopening of its mints with France and
the United States at a bimetallic rate
of 15-} to 1 would be ruin to India, since
a _ shilling rupee would kill exports
and render our dependency unable to
compete with the markets of the
world."
The Daily News Worried.
London, Oct. 17.���Thc Daily News,
in an editorial,headed the "Blmetallist
Conspiracy," says:
"We do not know what authority
there is for the statement that the government has agreed to continue negotiations nor can we see what the United States or any other country has to
do with tlie matter. But there must be
an end to the conspiracy of silence in
whieh the government is involved. Our
financial credit is far too serious a subject to bo bartered with foreigners or
bandied in the dark."
After severely reproving the chancellor of the exchequer and the governor of the Bank of England for thoir
share in tlie transaction-;, the, Daily
News.pointedly demands an explanation froin Mr. Balfour, first lord of the
treasury, and says:
"There are those, including our-
selves, who regard it as a public scandal that tbe first lord of the treasury
should bo a bimetaliist. '.'.'hey argue
that foreign critics may justly doubt
of our monometallism
>���. hi -i .hey sou a puts at, th<- tWatBUfy
who would if he could destroy the
:'   ef our monetary system."
After insinuating that tho question
has been 1 jft open with a view of in-
luencing the two forthcoming parliamentary b,\e elections in Lancashire,
the Daily News reiterates its demand
for full publicity and calls particularly
for the letter written by tho chancellor
of the exchequer to the governor of the
Lank of England.

Views uf thc Well-Known Metallurgist, Randall H. Kemp.
Editor British Columbia News:
Vou ask for my opinion regarding
tho establishment ot a mint in Canada,
and how such an enterprise would affect the general welfare of Unpeople.
This la a subject to which. I dare say
very, few residents or citizens of the
Dominion have over given much
thought.
I shall endeavor to show where the
operation of a mint would be of considerable advantage, provided itwerecoti-
di,."t,ed ou proper lines.
1. It would ereite. a home markot for

2. Silver coin should supplant the
ono dollar bills uow being Circulated
by the chartered banks.
.'!. It would aid materially in enhancing the value of silver.
4. The establishment of. one or more
refineries In Canada would at one ��� be-
como an absolute necessity,
ti. It would cause ail who havo the
good of this country at heart to lake

More Information From Ala��Ua���
UrltiMli Columbia Notes.
A cablegram has been received from
Glasgow, Scotland, from the head offices
of the Diamond Hill mines, ordering tt
shut-down of the entire plant for a lime.
The reason given is that the power that j
was developed on Crow ereek is far short,
of the amount necessary to run the 120- j
stamp mill recently completed on this
property. The discovery of the insulli-
ciency of power was made after all the !
machinery had been put in, and thus far,
it is announced, the surprising result has
been that at no time has there been power enough to run as many stamps us the
mill contains. The owners believe they
can not work economically on half ca- i
pacity, and will endeavor to make other
arrangements for power before continuing. To develop power by steam would
be out of the question, so it is said, for
it would cost eight times as much per
horse power as the water power was estimated to cost. The Diamond Hill plant
is one of the largest in the state, and the
fact that the discovery of insufficiency
of power was not made until the entire
machinery was in place is regarded ns
one of the sensations of the day in mining circles. It is said arnngetnents will
lie made to secure electrical power from
the Missouri River Dam Company and
transmit it 30 miles.
On Hunter Creek.
Among the pasengers arriving at Se-1
attle on the steamer Rosalie tlie other:
day were six from Dawson City, who
eame out over the Dalton trim. They
wero Pat Galvin and wife, Charles Thebo,
C. F. Ganish, C. H. Davis and a man
named Hede. They had about $12,000 in
nuggets between them. They left Dawson August 20 and arrived at Haines'
mission September 23. They report that ,
rich strikes have been made on Hunter
creek, which is as rich as Bonanza or Kl
Dorado. The total output this year will
exceed any estimate ever made. The
Rosalie reports everything quiet at
Skaguay. Many of the miners have completed building cabins in which to winter,
and others arc caching their supplies preparatory to leaving till next spring, when
they will again try the pasB.
Mineral Uatpai of Montnna.
Eugene B. Braden, assayer in charge of
the Unitd States assay ollice at Helena,
has begun the work of gathering statis-
tics for his annual report to the director :
of the mint of the metal output of Montana.   Mr. Braden said that he thought
the total mineral production of Montana
would be greater this year than last. The
increase would be mainly in copper. From i
what information he has obtained he believes there will be less gold, silver and
lead  than  was  produced last  year,  al- '
though the decrease may not be great.
Several silver-lead producers in Montana
have closed down during the year, owing
to thc low price    of    the white metal.
There is little dou-- that the copper production will be greater than ever before.
Willow Creek.
Recent developments in the east fork of
Willow creek are of such a character as
to suggest that the mother lode of that
ramp has been found. The developments
are on the Tiptop claim, five miles from
Pearl, There are two ledges on the property, each 25 feet wide. One is developed
by a 170-foot shaft. The value of the ore
averages from $10 to $45, mainly in gold.
A second ledge has been found five feet
down the hill from the one first opened.
It is also 20 feet wide, but the ore is
richer, running from $25 to $50 per ton.
Going  to the  Klondike.
One hundred and twenty miners have j
arrived at Victoria, II. C, on their way to
the Klondike.    All obstacles in the way
of a direct steamer service between Victoria and Dawson have been removed, thc '
Canadian l"aeific Transportation company !
have obtained permission from the United
Sillies  lo build a steamer at St.  Mich- j
ni'ls of Canadian material, which has already been sent up, and when completed I
will  be placed on  the Yukon  river to

There will be no dilliculty in the way of

Smelter at   Twin  Brldarea.
An important event in the history of
Twin Bridges, Mont., was the "blowing

company's smelter the other day.
Amid great cheering, Mr. Davis,
president, and I. M. Jacobs, general manager of the company,
wheeled out the first pot of slag. Three
cheers were given for Sewell Davis, L.
Hartzell, T. Graves and I. M. Jacobs. As
the slag was running three cheers and a
tiger were given by the large crowd for
the company. In the neighborhood of 50
people from Butte witnessed the blowing in.

"PETER SPOTS"���FIREMAN.
A Smart Dob that Belonaa to the New
York Fire Oepartment.
Charles T. Hill, the nrtist, has been
writing a scries of articles about the
New York lire department for St. Nicholas. An article ls devoted to " 'Peter
Spots'���Fireman," a smart dog that belongs to one of the engine companies.
Mr. Illll says, iiuotlug the words of the
firemen:
"The first run we made after getting
him, be didn't go with us, nnd we were
wondering when we were rolliug home
whether we would find him lu the engine bouse on our return, or whether
he had turned out with us and we had
lost liini on the way to the fire; for
we're not over particular in taking notice of things around us when we are
getting out when an alarm of fire comes
In. Tlie first idea Is to get out, anil that
as quickly as possible; nnd as we bad
nil become Interested In Peter, we were
anxious to see whether be had deserted
us or not; but when we opened tbe door
of the bouse out he came bounding,
Jumping up at all of ub, aud barking
:iway as much ns to say: 'Well, did you
put out the fire? Sorry 1 wasn't with
von,' or something like that; for to me
he Is so smart that I think he is trying
to talk all the time in his own way.
And now���well, bless you, sir. he's the
first one out of the house. The Instant
Ihe gong begins to ring, he takes his
position right there under the front
truck of the engine, nnti there he
stands.. Eyes wide open, ears up, and
tall sticking right straight out, he
watches me. The moment I start for
the seat he's off like a shot for the end
of the pole between the horses, bnrk-
ing like mad! for he knows we nre going out, or 1 wouldn't jump for tbe seat.
When the doors open, out he goes like
n bullet out of a gun; nnd If there is
any oue passing or standing outside, he
clears them away In short order; nud
there's very little danger of running
over any one ns long ns wp hnve blm
abend of us, for he clears the way better than two or three men could. On
he keeps, nil the way to the fire, nnd
half a block or more ln front of the engine.
"And now let me tell you how smart
ho is; for no matter how rough the
street may be, no mntter how dirty,
muddy or slushy it Is, nor how the
stones may hurt his feet, on he goes,
and never leaves It; but when we nre
coming home, bless your life; the street
isn't good enough for him, nnd you
enn't get blm into it, no matter how you
may eoux. No, sir; be takes the sidewalk back, and walks along as quiet
and dignified as can be, scarcely ever
noticing any other dog on his way; for
I think be feels that he Is much more
Important than they are, aud that they
are not in bis class at all. And he
won't stop when we get to the Ure; but
he follows us right In the building,
down a basement, or up a ladder���ah,
now I see you are laughing, and don't
believe what 1 am telling you, but It Is
a fact. He can climb a lndder wltb the
best of us, providing It ain't too high a
one, and he follows us right ln with
the line; but he can't come down a ladder; lie hasn't tbe knack of that yet,
and that's where the trouble conies ln.
Many's Ihe time we've gone up and
brought him out overcome with smoke,
and carrying hi in down, laid hlin In the
wagon to get over It.   '
"Aud many's the time the chief has
said to us: 'Some of you fellows will be
losing your lives yet with that dog!'
But, pshaw: sir, we would as soon think
of leaving one of the company behind
ns leaving Peter; for be is oue of the
company, although he's only a dog.
"And he's taken his dose with the
best of us. Got full of smoke lots of
times, anil soaked with water over and
over again. Came home oue night with
bis tall frozen stiff. Got drenched at a
cellar tire, and as It was a bitter cold
night It froze on him on his way back.
He was on the sick list for a long while
after that, and we had blm tied up In
thc cellar near the furnace, thawing
out, and all done up in blindages; but
he came out all right. Then we knocked him mil of a window, one night, with
it lino. He was standing on the sill,
and we were making a quick movement
lo get from one room to another. There
was good pressure on, mid we hnd a
heavy stream to hnndle; and Just ns we
liiade it quick (urn to get a 'belt' at
another room that was blazing, up lively, we lilt Peter, standing on the window sill, square with the stream. Out
he went sailing clear Into the middle of
the street, just as If he'd been shot from
A cannon. We thought he was done for
that time, sure; but when we 'backed
out,' about twenty minutes after, there
he was, a little lame, but nearly as
lively as ever. There was considerable snow In the street, and that saved
blm.
"And burns? Well, say, his back ls
all tattooed from the burns he's caught.
What with falling plaster nnd bits of
burning wood, he is all covered with
bare places where the hair will never
grow again, but those are service
marks, and, I tell you, he's a veteran
and proud of them."
A HARVEST OF HUMAN HAIR.
Millions   of Pounda Kvery   Year Get
Tangled Up in Commerce.
Perhaps there ls no staple article
about which less is known by the average person than human hair as an article of commerce, it will doubtless
surprise many when It Is stated that
the dealers lu human hair goods do
not depend on chance clippings here
and there, but that there ls a regular
hair harvest that can always be relied
upon. It ls estimated that over 12,-
000,000 pounds of human hair are used
annually ln the civilized world or
adorning the heads of women. In New
York city alone over four tons of this
class of goods are imported yearly.
"Not a little of the hair used ln this
country," said a New York dealer to
the writer, "domes from the heads of
American women and is fully as fine
In shade and texture as the imported
article. We had a big harvest during
the craze that the fair sex had not long
ago for having their hair cut short.
Many thousands of women who then
had their locks sheared have since bitterly regretted It, as In many Instances
their hair has grown so slowly Unit
they have been compelled to wear a
wig or a switch since the fashion
changed. After the majority of women rench the age of thirty the hair
seems to partially lose Its vigor, nnd
if cut It will not grow long again.
"Two-thirds of the ladles nowadays
use false hair more or less. The decree of fashion, or the charm, Is the
reason, of course. One womnn, for Instance, has a high forehead and wishes
to reduce It In appearance, Another
has worn off the front hair by continued frizzing, and would like to eouceaJ
the fact. Both make use of a front or
top piece, with a choice of many
styles.
"Ladles' wigs cost from $20 to $200.
Half wigs, top pieces and switches,
from $10 to $50, according to quality.
"The largest supply of hair comes
from Switzerland, Germany, and the
French provinces. There Is a human
hair market In Merlans, ln the department of the lower Pyrenees, held every
Friday. Hundreds of hair traders
walk up and down the one street of
the village, their shears dangling from
their belts, anil lns]K>et the braids
which the peasant girls, standing on
the steps of the houses, let down for
Inspection. If a bargain Is struck the
hair ls cut, and the money paid on the
spot, the price varying from 00 cents to
$3 ln our money.
"A woman's hair may grow to the
length of six feet. And I know a lady
who has beeu offered and refused $500
for her crown of glory, which ls over
six feet long. A single female hair
will lionr up a weight of four ounces
without breaking, but the hair thus
heavily weighted must be dark brown,
for blonde hair breaks under a strain
of two and one-half ounces. There
are some 2.000 importers, manufacturers and dealers in human hair ln thf
i'nlted States.

Scientific Explanation of Recent Severe
Accident), of Thla Nature.
Explosions of dust have recently been
Ihe cause of two severe accidents ln
Chicago, following close on minor
casualties of a similar nature in various other parts of the country, and the
calamities have presented forcibly to
���observant minds the fact that ninny
materials are, in pulverized form, explosives of exceedingly high power.
Not only coal, bh shown in numerous
mine explosions, but the powder from
grain comes lu this category. This latter substance was the cnuse of live
deaths und half a hundred fatalities at
the Northwestern Elevator lire In the
city named In August, and tine sawdust was the material which played
great havoc at a sash and blind factory
in the same district.
Investigation shows that these explosions may be traced lo quite natural
premises. Any explosion Is a rapid
combustion of highly combustive material, as In the case of gunpowder.
Ordinarily combustion, however, may
be considered ns a slow explosion. Tlie
���chemical action In the two Instances
differs only hi point of time. Relatively, uoii-coiiilii'.stllilc substances may be
readily Ignited when finely divided, as
in the case of iron filings. This Ignition Is not spontaneous���It must come
from light or a high degree of heat In
Home other form. A teaspoonful of
flour, blown by bellows across an alcohol flame, will demonstrate the explosive character of a presumably  non-
CHICAGO'S LARGEST BELL.
Weighs (���r,00 I'ounda and la In St.
John's Caution Church.
The largest bell in Chicago Is thnt recently placed ln the tower of the
Church of St. John Cantlus, at Carpenter street and Chicago avenue. It took
the better part of three days to hoist
the big bell and two others Into the
tower. Sixteen men were employed in
the task, and a man from tlie foundry
nt West Troy, N. Y., where the bell
was cast, superintended the Job.
Six thousand five hundred pounds is
the weight of the big bell, and with it
came two others, welghlng8,800pounds
and 2,400 pounds respectively. The big
bell is the largest In Chicago. It measures sixty-six inches across its mouth
nnd Its height is fifty Inches. Resting
on the supports from which It swings,
when ringing out a summons to attend
mass or tolling the death of H parish-
loner, the bell towers to more than
twice the height of a man.
The big bells were cast In West Troy,
N. Y., where most of the large bells
for churches tire made. The work of
casting It was a very tedious process,
for great care must be used in casting
a bell, as the slightest mistake will
ruin Its tone. Seventy-seven per cent,
of copper and 88 per cent, of tin formed the alloy which was llrst made and
then melted into 12-pound ingots.
These in turn were melted In three re-
verbatory furnaces. A giant mold was
made, consisting of a core nnd a cope,
the latter fitting over tlie former leaving a space between In the shape of a
bell. The outside of the core and tin;
inside of the cope were lined with clay
hardened  by   firing.    Tlie   mold   was

combustible substance, for a sharp
puff will result
In more marked contrast to either of
the recent Chicago disasters, the power
of exploding dust was shown In Ihe
historic destruction of the Washburn
mills in Minneapolis, May 2, 1878. It
resembled an earthquake. Pieces of
sheet-iron roofing were thrown* two
miles. Elghtneu lives were lost, nnd
property to the value of over- $800 000
was destroyed. This explosion was undoubtedly caused by n spark from a
pair of millstones, running without
grain between them, a condition under
which stones become- very hot. The
Chicngo elevator disaster was due to
the igniting of the grain dust by the
high temperature of the drying shaft.
Efforts are now being made to render mills dust-explosive proof. Fans
are used to blow particles fur apart. In
sawmills, the exhaust steam ls employed to dampen the dust, and In coal
mines quicklime is utilized to modify
the Influence of conl damp. The main
tiling Is to prevent unusual combustible particles from Igniting from one another.

cope was a half Inch thick at the top
and two Inches thick at the bottom,
thus preventing the danger of explosion, such as wns formerly common
wheu casting a bell.
Streams from the furnaces poured
Into tho mold ami tlie bell was cast
and ready to be shipped to Chicago.
Tlie smaller bells were mnde in much
the same way, but special molds were
not necessary, us the foundry makes a
great many bells of their size.
The bells were received In Chicago
and were placed on exhibition on a
platform iu front of the church, where
they were viewed by the thousands
who comprise the densely populated
parish of St. John's Cantlus. Then
they were consecrated, the priest of
the diocese, Rev. Father John Kas-
przyckl, being assisted by fifteen
priests aud representatives of more
than sixty Polish societies. It Is estimated that 10,000 persons were present at the service. /
An Old African to Uee  Hia   Klondike
Gold for Hia Former Mlatreaa.
Among the lucky miners In the Klondike Is a former slave, a grizzled old
African who bears the high-sounding
name of St. John Aitbertoii. He has
dug out $30,000 in gold, and has a couple of claims which may be reasonably
expected to yield $100,000 more. He Is
probably the one man lu Alaska who
ls planning to do a novel act of charity
when the time comes for him to abandon his mining work and return to the
civilized world.
Before the war Atherton was owned
by a Georgia family which hud a
large plantation near Atlanta. When
he got his freedom- he drifted about tlie
country doing odd jobs, and finally
struck the Yukon valley, where he got
work as a freighter. The ex-stave hud
a hard time of It for years, and when
the Klondike excitement broke out be
made his way to the gold fields. There
he tolled ln diggings which hud been
abandoned by white men until he found
a paying streak, since which he has
been accumulating money very fast.
When asked what he Intended to do
with the $30,000 which he has now on
deposit In Dawson City, Atherton said:
"Pm going back to Georgia and buy
the old plantation."
"Buy the old plantation? Why, what
do you mean?"
"When I was a slave my master was
a rich man. He was kind to me aud
his daughter was just like him. Things
didn't go well with him after the war,
and some years ago he had to mortgage the plantation. Since then he
died, and his daughter Is now living on
the old place alone. The time is coming when It must be sold if the mortgage is not paid, and then she will have
no home. What 1 want to do Is to get
back to Georgia and'buy up that mortgage. Then I will turn the plantation
over to my old master's daughter and
nobody can drive her away from It."
"But she won't like the idea of having oue of her former slaves for a
boss."
"Huh! I don't want to be a boss.
I'll just stay uround and look after
things for her like I used to. Somebody's got to do It, and I know she'd
rather have me than a stranger. It
will take $30,000 or $3.r,,000, and the
rest of my money will keep me well us
long ns I live."

A Terrible Heredity.
A special study of hereditary drunkenness has beeu made by Prof. Pell-
maun of Bonn University, Germany.
His method was to take certain Individual cases, a generation or two back.
He thus traced the careers of children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren
In all parts of the present German empire until he was able to present tabulated biographies of the hundreds descended from some original drunkard.
Notable among the persons described
by Prof. Pellmnnn Is I'rnu Ida Jurka,
who was born In 1740, and wits a drunkard, n thief and u tramp for thc lust
forty years of her life, which ended lu
1800. Her descendants numbered 684,
of whom 700 were traced lu local records from youth to death. One hundred aud six of thc 7(10 were born out
of wedlock. There were 144 beggars
and 02 more who lived from charity.
Of the women, 181 led disreputable
lives. There were In this family 70
convicts, 7 of whom were sentenced
for murder. Iu a period of some seventy-five yenrs this one family rolled
up a bill of costs in almliouses, prisons
and correctional Institutions amounting
to at least 5,000,000 marks, or about
$1,_50,000.-Medlcal Record.
BAILEY'S BIG DOG.
A 207 Pound  Canine  Paid   to  He the
Large** <��� the Country.
The largest dog In this country Is the
property of Wayne Bailey, of Rutland,
Vt. When weighed the other day lie
tipped the scales at 207 pounds. When
the animal weighed 244 pounds a prominent dog fancier declared him to be
tne largest dog In the world.   Repeated-
Glass Bangles.
Both Hindoo and Mussulman women
wear glass bangles, and in the Northwest Provinces they .are regarded as
sacred objects. If a glass bangle be accidentally broken, Its pieces must be
gathered together and kissed three
times. Every Hindoo woman wears
these ornaments until her husband
dies, when she breaks them with a
brick or a stone, and substitute gold or
silver ones, the sign tn the north of
India that the wearer is a widow.
Thus it ls that the demand for glass
baua-lei. Is never-failing.
ly Mr. Bailey has been urged to put
Nero on exhibition at the big dog shows,
but lie has never thought It advisable.
Nero Is a handsome linlf German nud
half English mnstlff, fnwu brludle In
color, his head being of n trifle darker
shade. He sets up firmly on ills legs
and is remarkably well proportioned.
He ls bb agile and lively on Ills feet as
a cat and the other day caught a big
rat In his master's barn. He makes a
splendid watchdog, but Is withal a kind
and affectionate animal. Mr. Bailey
bought him at West P.utland when he
was six mouths old; he Is now four
years old. At the time of purchase Nero
weighed 102 pounds. The anluini is a
product of Mr. Wlnchel's kennels nt
Fair Haven. Nero ls provided with a
strong leather harness, as he cannot
wear a collar. The animal stands up
from the ground thirty-five Inches and
girds fifty Inches. The dog's neck Is
unusually large, measuring thirty Inches, and from tip to tip he measures six
feet five and one-half Inches.
Ia She Who Follows the Well-Beaten
Patha of Life.
Edward W. Bok, writing on the
theme "On Being Old-fusliioned" ln
the Ladles' Home Journal, contends
that much of the so-called progress of
to-day is not progressive; ln fact, that
"old-fashioned" women who follow
well-beaten paths, adhere to old customs and accept well-established teachings, are the really progressive ones,
for the reason that their efforts meet
with uo Interruptions, nor ls there possibility of collapse in whatever engages their attention. 'In domestic
life the "progressive' woman has had
a very busy time," says Mr. Bok. "She
began by upsetting the old sewing-basket. It was narrowing to a woman,
she discovered one dark morning. Likewise was cooking, and the care of children. A woman who stayed at home
and looked after the comfort of hoi
husband and children was 'wishy-
washy': she cramped her life, dwarfed
her intellect, narrowed her horizon.
Clubs by thc score, societies by the
hundred, schemes and plans by the
thousand were started, organized and
devised to rid 'poor woman' of her
'thraldom.' And these 'progressive'
women were so busy for tlie elevation
of their sex! But there were a few
hundred thousand women who kept
right on being busy elevating their
children, helping their husbands, and
believing that the sex In general was
jierfectly able to take care of Itself.
And these women are still busy sewing,
cooking and caring for their children.
And, gradually, they have seen sewing
classes introduced In college and seminary courses, domestic science branches attached to nearly every educational
Institution which girls attend, while
the care of children has received the
endorsement of state nnd the specific
attention of the national government.
And what of the 'progressive' woman?
Truly, the places that knew her once
know her no more!"
Roman Baths.
Every Roman in curly days had tbe
use of the public baths on payment of
aliout half a farthing. These were not
such structures as we call public baths,
but superb buildings llued with Egyptian granite and Nubian marble. Warm
water was poured Into the capacious
basins through wide mouths of bright
and massive sliver. The most magnificent baths were those of Caracalla,
which had seats of marble for more
than sixteen hundred people, and those
of Diocletian, which had seats for three
thousand people.
A Lesson in Economy.
A story ls told of the late Baron
Hirsch that conveys a valuable lesson.
After writing a message announcing
the gift of a fortune to a school, the
���great millionaire went over the telegram carefully a second time, condensing it so as to save a franc.
Prlnceas Victoria  of Sweden Wheels
for Her Health.
Princess Victoria, the crown princess
of Sweden, has taken up the wheel.
Cycling has not been a favorite pastime
among the royalties of Europe since the
German empress frowned upon it of
late. It Is said that William, too, does
not care to see the women of the iiu-
periill family astride the wheel. In the
face of all this, however, the Swedish
crown princess has taken up the exer-

Somo Tested Points In Diet.
The fact that milk has become extremely popular with all classes of physicians of late yean Is emphasized by
a recent writer In the North American
Review. Formerly a fever patient was
forbidden to take the article, while In
modern practice It Is about the only
food allowed, and a well-nigh exclusive diet of that llipild Is said to be
very efficacious In diabetes. At the
licrmnn spas, Carlsbad, Wiesbaden,
etc., a very little bread Is allowed, the
diet lielng mostly made up of milk,
eggs, grapes and lenu beef; n non-
starch diet Is the rule, bread, starchy
vegetables and cereals being almost
excluded. Rice is easily digested and
an excellent food, except that It
abounds in earth salts. Fruits are uot
only digested lu the lirst stomach, but
they have a large part of tiie nourishment already iu a condrlon to be absorbed and assimilated as soon as
eaten. Tlie food elements in bread and
cereals have to undergo a process of
digestion In the stomach and then lie
passed on to the Intestines for a still
further chemical change liefore lielng
of use to the human system, showing
the advantage of a diet of lean meat/
and fruits.

Bui the money lending classes have,

a Btorm that the cabinet has heen
practically forced lo stand and deliver

long this condition of things can endue- i uncertain, but unless relief of
some kind is granted to tho toiling
millions from thu oppression  of mono-
etallism and a contracted currency
there will bo an upheaval in both

I^OK A BOARD OP TRADE.
Preliminary Mcctinij Held Last Tues-
(las Evening.
A meeting of Kaslo's  business men
was called by Mayor Green last Tuesday evening at the Kaslo hotel auditorium for the purpose of organizing a
municipal board of trade. Mayor (ireen
presided and W. B, Turner of the
British Columbia News acted as secretary pro tern.
Preliminary discussions were participated in by Messrs. King, Buchanan
and Martin, all otending to show the
need of such an organization and dwelling on the benefit that it would be to
the city.
Messrs, Buchanan and King were
then appointed as a committee to canvass the town and seoure members.
Metsrs. Marl in and Whiteside were
appointed a committee to draft a constitution and by-laws.
Arthur A. Scaifc of Victoria, recent
editor of the Province who happened
to bo present, was called upon lo give
some ideas on board of trade organizations, which he did in a felicitous manner. He Is a member of tho Victoria
Board of Trade, or the B. C. Board of
Trade, as 11 sees fit to term itself, Inappropriately he thought'. Mr, Skaife
said that a well conducted hoard of
trade would exert great influence on
the upbuilding of the city in which it
i- located and would beau organization
that would command respect from the
government, He though that no one
nould by reading, alone, get an adequate conception of the wonderful rest, urces of this region or the live cities
occupying it, and he was glad to view
them with Ms own eyes, and see that,
the people were alive to the Idea of
having them properly represented.
The meeting then adjourned to meet
at the joint call of, the committees.

THE AINSWOKTH BUUGST.
A Prosperous Community���A  Rich
Strike.
Ainsworth, Oct. 19.���We aro experiencing quite a building boom at present, tliere being no less than six buildings in courso of construction. It is
only a matter of a short time when
Ainsworth will be ono of tho leading
camps in tho Kootenay, owing to tho
extremely large and extensive mineral
bodies found in almost all the developed properties,together with the richness of the ore. Wo enjoy the distinction, too, of being above the uneasiness which seems to characterize so
many camps at tho prevailing prices
of silver, knowing full well that the
only tiling we need is proper facilities
for treating our ore, which aro now
assured since tho Maxwell-Stevenson concentrator at this point and tho
smelter at Pilot Bay arc on the point of
opening to their fullest capacity. We
realize that the freight charge on our
product will in the futuro be cents
where it has formerly been dollars,
which of itself will be an enormous
thing for Ainsworth's mines.
Dan Grant and Charles Rossiter
brought some gray coppor ore in from
oue of their claims midway between
Ainsworth and Kaslo on the south side
of tho North Fork of Woodbury creek,
whieh is among tbo richest ovor seen
In this section. The property makes
several magnificent showings, and for
a distance of .'100 feet where open cuts
have beeu made the same high grade
ore is uncovered. Of the three assays
mado by Mr. Stalborg, our local assayer. the lirst went $o in gold and (164
ounces in silver, tho seoond $'! in gold
and 10(1 ounces in silver, and thc third
2,'!2."i ounces in silver. Messrs. Grant
and Rossiter expeot to return to their
property sometime this week where
they will do considerable more development work before snow Hies. The
ore is ln slate and lime, a formation
which carries tho richest ore in the
Ainsworth section.
The Blaok Diamond laid off all its
mon Saturday except twelve. This wa.s
owing to thc fact that this mino has a
plethora of concentrating ore on the
dump, estimated at many thousands of
tons which concentrate 5 into 1. The
owners aro building a tram to connect
w ith tho Highlander tram which runs
to the Maxwell-Stevenson concentrator.
The full force will be returned to work
as soon as the ore on the dump has been
disposed of by the concentrator.
Tho No. 1 shipped 360 tons of ore
from this point to tho smelter's concentrator at Pilot Bay, Sunday.
The Tariff mine, owned by tho Pilot
Bay smelter people, is making arrang-
menls to ship to its fullest capacity in
a few days.
A number of work horses havo boen
shipped from this point to the Blue
Bell mine the past week, and it is understood that extensive operations will
be resumed there at no very distant
day. This proporty is also owned by
tho smelter people.
Dr. Henry reports tho health of our
people as very good.
Conditions arc most favorable for a
prosperous winter in Ainsworth, and
our people are correspondingly pleased
at the outlook.

The llrilish Columbia News grasps
the problem of newspaper adverse ing
as a skilled electrician grasps a live
wire. Advertising, however, unlike
electricity, is a certain known force,
working iu a certain known manner.
Like electricity, if properly handled,
ii i effects are marvelous; trifled or experimented with by inexperienced persons, if is always expensive and oftoi
dangerous. The whole secret of sue
cess in business is in knowing how to
properly employ this potent force advertising, if you want to bo its master
and not its victim; if you want to get
all of the benefit and none of tho disaster, possible from tho wonderful pow
er of advertising, use tho columns of
tho British Columbia News.
ll'KlllH   I
That's what every advertiser is after.
How they are obtained best is the next
thing. Wo will toll you: By advertising in mediums that are welcomed
by and command the esteem of their
readers, by preparing ads that are ads,
and having them composed by artistic
printers -not thrown together with a
scoop shovel. That is tho way to obtain results.
New ltnilroi.il Humor,..
The presence of Nelson D. Miller,
noted ln last week's News, Is also causing some comment .elsewhere. Mr.
Miller preferred not to talk of the
cause of his visit here. Last Saturday's
Kootenay Herald of Bonnor's Ferry,
Idaho, Hays:
"N. D. Miller, ex-chief engineer of
the Great Northern railway, was in
town today. Ho was the engineer in
charge of the Kaslo & Sloean. lie
came up from Port Hill on horseback,
riding over tho proposed lino of railway Iroin Bonner's Ferry to Port Hill
and the lake. Mr. Miller left on thc
train but staled that he would return
and expected to remain in these parts
a month. There seems to bo some railroad move on foot, but just what it is
we are unable lo ascertain."

How to Advertise.
The profitable placing of advertising
consists lirst in preparing good copy-
copy thnt says what ought to bo said in
a convincing way. Second, in setting
the matter in such typo us will catch
the eye and embellishing it iu a manner that will tell tho story at a casual
glance. Third, in the selection of papers that reach tbe lnrgo-i number of
lie right sort of pooplu and soil advertising space at a reasonable rate. To
secure these points for the advertiser
the British Columbia News devotes its
entire energies,
lloncity tho Hunt Policy.
Honesty in selling advertising space
Is more than merely carrying out tho
conditions of a contract. Honesty, as
wo look at it, moans to put all the.
forces and energy of a newspaper behind every advertisement which appears In its columns, it moans the employment of time and attention on the
part of the publisher to prepare advertisements for his patrons that aro certain to be seen and so honest and emphatic, as to be believed. It means, on
the part of tho advertiser, the buying
of space in mediums thai aro selected
for their known quality and worth-
not for any reason of favoritism or
liking. There is no brag or Bluster
about this talk.    It is fact.

L.ADY ANDERSON.
^he Wonderful  Pacer  an  Interesting
Piece of lloraefleah.
Lady Anderton, the wonderful pacer
who speeds over the truck without a
driver or guide, is one of the most interesting lilts of horseflesh In America.
Stic ls so perfectly trained that she
stops at the word of the judges, returns
to ihe [lost and waits until slip hears
Ihe word  "go."    Lady Anderson was
I.AIIY  ANDERSON.
born In Henry County, Ind., in 1889.
She is of a strawberry roan color, fifteen hands high and weighs 800 pounds.
Her form is small and her appearance
pretty and graceful. She was purchased by her present owner, William M.
Thomas of Greenfield, last year for
$450. In her scoring for heats Lady
Anilersou displays much grace and
vitality and seems possessed of almost
human intelligence. Then, too, she is
a pacer of wonderful speed. She has
cut her going down from 2:14 to 2:08
on a half-mile course. This was mnde
In an effort, to roach the world's record
of 2:04%. It was done on a half-mile
track, which detracts from the natural
speed she would have dpvoloppd. Had
a mile track heen used the wonderful
mare would have done 2:05 or better.
There are but two other driverless pacers In this country. They are Marlon
Mills of Wisconsin, who holds the
world's record of 2:04%. made at Detroit, and Happy Jack, with a record of
2:11.

Maj. Walsh, of the northwest mounted police, will probably be ln supreme

.1A.I. WALSH.
dominion gold commissioner for tbe

he will be given full charge of the
troops In the gold region. Maj. Walsh
Is a veteran campaigner, and would be
well qualified to deal promptly and
sharply with any difficulties which
might arise In the new Kl Dorado. He j

The negligence of a passenger in stepping on a train when It Is going two or
three miles nn hour Is held. In Dlstler
vs. ..ong Island Railroad Company (N.
Jf.) 35 L. R. A. 762, to be a Question for
the jury.
A personal liability for pavements assessment ls upheld, in Storrle vs.
Cortes (Tex.) 35 I.. It. A. 6(1(5, where
the city charter make* It a lien on
property and provides also for suit
against the owner.
The addition of tho word "trustee"' to
the name of the payee of a note Is held,
in Fox vs. Citizens' Bank nnd Trust
Company (Tenn.) 35 L. K. A. 678, not to
aestroy its negotiability. The other authorities on this question are reviewed
iu the annotation to the case.
General reputation In a family as to
the death of a member, if not derived
from declarations of any deceased
memlier of the family, is held, in re
Hurlbut (Vt.) 35 L. R. A. 794, to be inadmissible to show the fact of his

A corporate seal on a note which ls

A railroad company selling coupon
tickets over connecting roads Is held, In
Chicago and Alton Railroad Company
vs. Mulford (111.) 35 L. R. A. 599, to be
presumably a mere agent for the connecting company and not liable for the

The measure of damages for fraud
in a contract for the exchange of property Is held, in Rockefeller vs. Merritt

proclamation making the annexatiou,
are uot conclusive.
Possession of land under a parole
promise of a gift is held, In Schafer vs.
Mauser (Mich.) 35 L. R. A. 835, to be
sufficient foundation for adverse possession on the part of the donee, and
this is upheld as against a subsequent

The right of an alien corporation to
acquire lands "under mortgage" Is
held, in Oregon Mortgage Company vs.
Oarstens (Wash.) 35 L. R. A. 841, to Include an acquisition of the land by

Tlie holder of a note who takes it entirely on the security of a policy of life
Insurance, although It Is technically delivered prior to maturity, is held. In
Hays vs. Lapeyre (La.) 35 L. It. A. 647,
to be entitled to bold the note only for

considers the negotiability of a note

BfiRNHARD VON BULOW.
The New  Prussian   Mlnlatcr   of  Foreign Afluira.
Bismarck's sarcastic remark of a few
years ago that Germany's policy Is
made by a soldier on half pay and a
retired stale's attorney Is no longer correct, since Prince Hohcnlohe is Ger-
mnn chancellor and Bernard von Bu-
low Prussian minister of foreign affairs. The latter is thc descendant of
a long line of soldiers and statesmen,
nnd now occupies the same position his
father did twenty-five years ago. He
may be considered as a sort of link between Bismarck and the emperor, because he ls highly esteemed by the former and very much Liked by the latter,
a position which will be of great advantage In the reconciliation between
the former chancellor and the emperor,
Herr von Bulow entered the diplomatic career In 1874 as one of the assistants In the foreign office, and soon was
made secretary of legations, serving In
this capacity ln Rome, Paris aud Vienna. Then he was made minister plenipotentiary at Bucharest.    Subsequent-
BRRSHA.KD VON BULOW.
ly he was ambassador ln Rome; and
from that position, nnd only 48 years
old. he Is called upon to fill the highest
place in the Prussian diplomatic service. His political convictions arc unknown, though It ls claimed by those
who know the man well that he Is too
much of a cosmopolitan character to
affiliate with the reactionary feudalisms
who now compose the "kitchen cabinet" of tlio German emperor. On the
other hand, no liberal policy can he expected from him, because his training
as well as his family traditions naturally places htm In the conservative
ranks. As such he is likely to stand for
a strongly developed protective tariff,
as well as against bimetallism, representing In both respects the personal
policy of Mm emperor. He has hnd very
little opportunity to pose as a public
speaker. What he has done In former
years in the Prussian diet and In the
German relchstag was to read from
manuscript his carefully prepared
speeches, which nre described as marvels of elegant diction nud clear cut
logic.

Jonathan   Dolllver,   of Iowa,   Enjoys
that Pleasing Distinction. .
There nre many brilliant men and
speakers of national reputation among
the representatives ln Congress, but It
Is generally conceded that Hon. Jonathan, P. Dolllver, of tlie Tenth Iown
District, ls pre-eaninently tlie orator of
that distinguished body. Mr. Dolllvcir
was elected to the Fifty-first Congress,
and at thait time was but 31 years of
a**1.
The first recognition by tlie House of
Mr. Dolliver's brilliant powers, followed his speech on the McKlnley tariff bill, when even those widely differing from lilin In polltlcnl creeds generously accorded the praise won by this
effort. Subsequently he wns Invited to

Watch vs. locomotive.
Very few of the millions of people
wi.? curry watches realize to what n
wonderful extent lubrication Is developed and what an extraordinary number of turns the balance wheel makes
with one oiling. A Uhestnufr street
watchmaker, whose knowledge of these
wonderful pieces of mechanism ls not
exceeded by nny man In this city, has
made up an Interesting table of comparison to show the perfection of luhrl-
cation In n watch.
A watch will run on one oiling from
a year to a year and a half. Every
minute the balance wheel turns on Its
axis 450 times, and 27,000 times ln an
hour. Accepting the year as the time
the ordinary watch will run with one
oiling he finds that if the driver of a
locomotive was as well oiled as the balance wheel of a watch it ought to run
sixty miles an hour dny and night foi
848 days, or well on to two years with
one oiling. In thnt time it would tra
verse a distance equal to nearly foui
times the circumference of the earth.
In view of the fact that ln reality few
locomotives will run one day without
rcolllng, he maintains that the watch
maker has developed his.art to a fai
greater degree than the locomotive
builder has yet been able to reach.���

6MALLEST   BOOK   IN   THE   WORLD, j
Wonderful Specimen   of T�� pimrnph-
l.-nl MklH.
Italy has succeeded In producing the
emallest book ln the world, says the Philadelphia Bulletin, $e far back as 1S50 the !
well known historian, Cesare Cnntu, together with the publisher Gnoechl of MI-
Iiil undertook to Issue an edition of "The i
Divine Oommedla" of Dante In the smallest known characters, but they were unsuccessful, although the Gnoechl house
tried for 20 years. In 1870 the brothers
SaJmin of Padua took over the work nnd
were successful In producing a tiny book
of BOO pages, 38x22 millimeters in size, with
31 lines In each page, whieh book they
claimed as the smallest In the world, and,
In fact, was of less dimensions than "Tho
Offlciolum" of the celebrated Gluuli. 49x
ti millimeters, printed In Venice In 1019.
nnd a Senect, "De Tranqulllltate Anlml,"
42x3!, printed in Leydcn in ISM.
Hut another victory has been scored for
the modern Italian typographical art by
the brothers Salmin. who have made the
booklet one-third smaller than the Dante
possessed by M. George Salomon of Paris,
who solemnly declared himself the possessor of the smallest book In the world.
His book was printed In Holland In 1647,
is 10x6 millimeters, but with such large
letters that only a few words go to each
page, and so It loses Its likeness to a
book. The Salmin house has made within the same dimensions a real book of 208
pages, each page with nine lines and 95 ;o
100 letters, being an unpublished letter of
Galileo to Mine. Cristlne of Lorraine in
1615. Anyone who sees this masterpiece
of the art of printing can not help being
astonished ut the smallness, exactness
and eleghjice of the characters.

Me   Inspired    tke   Horrid    Crneltlee
Practiced In  Cuba.
The tragic taking off of Honor Canovas, tin- Premier of Spain, cannot blur
llic liistorleul fuct tlint lie won tilie mounter who Inspired the barbanlthw In
I'ulin. lie wns tlie archfiend behind
the butcher Weyler, and aupported him
In all bis atrocities toward the Cubun
imtrlots. The undoubted fact that Cnn-
iivus acted only in accordance with his
training nnd his conception of patriotism docs not change the nature of h's
conduct nor ameliorate its horrid suv-
.iKery.
He was the instigator of thc most
awful scheme of wholesale assassination thc civilized world has seen for
.years in a civilized laud, and the great
strength of his character and his dorni-
lmtion of his official associates serve to
render his cruel nature more conspicuous. There hns never been an attempt
to deny that Weyler ln his present position has heen a creature and tool of
t'nuovns. It hns even lieen hi tiled that
the two had some sort of secret business alliance, possibly in connection
with a division of spoils. But the business considerations are not material to
outside spectators of the Cuban tragedy. The fact that Weyler was the
agent who executed th>> decrees of Can-
ovas, his chief, is the fact that stands
out with awful plainness from the record of this conflict
There have heen the most serious
complaints against Weyler from his
troops, from his officers, from the more
humane Spanish citizens ln Havana,
from thousands of prominent citizens
In Madrid, and these complaints have
been of such magnitude that any man
less strongly fortified In his position
must have been overwhelmed. But
Weyler has withstood them all und has
not abated by one Jot Ills policy of inhumanity. Tliere is nothing of Inherent strength In Weyler to justify such
successful resistance. He has not been
the man of power who hns disconcerted his foes. Cnnovas alone has been
his bulwark and to Canovas alone does
he owe immunity from the wrath of
his outraged people.
Bue there ls a worse phase yet of the
situation. Canovas has not only protected Weyler but he has beeu his sponsor in a way that shows that on Canovas has rested the chief responsibility for the cruelties In Cuba. Cnnovas
has been cognizant of the character of
Weyler's campaigns. The whole world
has been told with infinite and horrible
detail of tlie bubcherleM perpetrated by
that man. The burning of hospitals,
thc killing of women aud children, the
murder of old men, the assassination
of non-combatants, the torture of suspects In prison, the assassination of
prisoners, the w*iole category of atrocities hns been laid bare to the world
faithfully and with horrible dreuiii-
.stnutlal evidence.
These have beeu the apparent acts
of Weyler, but the man who must be
held responsible in history is Canovas.
Weyler was Canovas' creature and subject entirely to his will. If Canovas
had disapproved of Weyler's course. If
lie had objected to those butcheries, if
he had not desired a reign of barbarous
met hods In the carrying on of the Cuban war, a word from him would have
changed It all. He could have compelled a cessation of the cruelties in a
day, or If Weyler had dared to disobey
lie could have stripped the butcher of
his command In an instant.
Canovas has escaped exposure before
because the Cuban junta has feared to
tell the truth nbout him. The Cuban
patriots In the I'nlted States have not
dared place the responsibility where It
belonged lest Weyler should lie ordered
to be more cruel and bloodthirsty. Denunciations liav,; been poured out
flgnlnst Weyler, but the real villain was
granted temporary immunity in tlie
hope that some political exigency
would cause the recall of Weyler and the
substitution of a less savage commander. The American press has followed
this same course, heaping execrations
on Canovas' tool aud hangman Instead
of on himself, on whom IK) per ceut. of
the blame must rightfully rest.
Canovas selected Weyler to do this
cruel work because he knew Weyler
wa siuiiiii-iilly Inhuman and savage,
and Canovas was the villniu ou whom
American denunciation should have
fallen, hot, vitriolic, nnd sulphuric.
The Italian anarchist had rid the world
of oiu' of the hardest-hearted creatures
that ever disgraced It. One thing is assured, no subsequent Spanish Premier
can escape responsibility for the acts
wns naturally Inhuman and savage,
of the general In command In Cuba. If
atrocities are kept up by Weyler or a
successor to Weyler the successor to
Canovas will be made to feel the wrath
of civilization.
Manitoba's Premier Incognito.
About oue year ago a respected citizen of a small town In North Dakota
walked into the hotel with bis wife for
the noonday meal. He saw at his table
two strangers, one a young mon, pretty well dressed, and the other, evidently a farmer, about 60 years of age, with
a gray, rough beard and well-worn ami
ill-fitting clothing. Little attention
was paid to the pair, beyond a hasty
scrutiny. The citizen and his wife
were thinking of taking a trip to a
lake ln Manitoba, near Crystal City,
for a few days, and were talking about
the trip, inquiring bow long the fishing
would be good, etc., questions which
those who were talking seemed unable
to answer. The old fanner spoke up,
and, venturing lo explain that he lived
quite near the lake, told all about the
sllnation there, where to go, at whose
house to stop and other needed Information. LHtle else was said, but the
Impression made on the citizen and
wife was not sufficient to cause them
to make very much Inquiry, und no one
about the hotel knew who the two men
were.
"Well, he seemed to lie a nice old fellow," said the wife, "though I noticed
he seemed quite helpless ln regard to
disposing of his lettuce. Probably his
first meal at a hotel."
"Very likely," replied the citizen.
Tlie next dny the citizen met his
friend, the liveryman, who said:
"By tho way, did you see Premier
Oreonway of Manitoba when he was
here yesterday? His driver brought
h.m down here from Crystal City,
where he lives, you know, to catch the
train for St. Paul and then to Ottawa,
as he wns In a hurry to go. He said he
thought Gl'eenway was called there to
confer with Laurier and llx up the
school question. He took dinner at the
Columbia, and I didn't know but you
might have seen him."���Boston Trttiv

Old-Fashioned Journalism.
He wns n tenderfoot from Illinois.
He was hungry, ragged and dead broke,
and was making for Carson Plats with
the Idea of finding something to do as
an editor, reporter or compositor ou the
American Eagle. It wus a scrub weekly, but up to the average and work of
some sort was his last hope. He was
within a mile of the town, and had snt
down on a stone for a rest, when a
crowd of about thirty men turned lu
from the Snake gulch trail. They were
mostly hard looking cases, and as they
came up the lender looked the tenderfoot over nnd queried:
"Why don't ye hang yerself ?"
"Because I've got no rope," V/as the
reply.
"Whar's ye goln";"
"Down to Carson Flat."
"What fur?"
"To hit a Job on the Eagle."
"Ar' ye a newspaper man?"
"Yes."
"Then cum nlong."
He followed the crowd down the hill
and across the level to the town of tents
and shanties, nnd the first stop was
made in front of the Eugle attlee. The
leader and two of his crowd entered,
and pretty soon renppenred with the editor and proprietor, who hnd a rope
around his neck and was somewhat perturbed. There were cries of "Hung
him!" from various individuals, but the
boss of the gang waved his hand for
silence aud said:
"All in reg'lar order, boys. Now,
Mister man, we don't like yer paper,
and we've cum over to give ye a choice.
Will ye git or hnng'r"
"What's the matter with my paper?"
demanded the editor,
"Will ye git or hang? We hain't no
time fur foolin'."
"Why, I'll git." i,
"Then go."
They gave him time to make up n
bundle of clothes and started him off
up the trail, and .then the boss turned
to the tenderfoot with:
"Now, young feller, slop In and tnke
possession. We may hung ye Inside of
two weeks, or ye may pull nlong fur
two or three months."
Ten minutes later he was ln full possession of the office. Thc editor was
his own compositor and pressman, and
there was enough white paper on hand
to get out three Issues. The entire outfit, press and all, could have been packed on the back of a mule, but In those
days the newspaper reader neither
looked for quantity nor quality. He
got out a fairly decent looking sheet,
aud as each copy sold for 50 cents, spot
cash, It was better than mining. Tho
third number had Just been issued nud
the tenderfoot was sticking type for
the fourth, when a gang of about fifty
men came marching down from Dog
Hill nnd halted In front of the office.
Only one man came in. He hnd a hangman's rope over his left arm and a gun
In his right hand, and after a look
around he said:
"Well, young man, It's time fur ye to
move on!"
"What's the row?" wns asked.
"Oh, ntithln' In pertlckler, but the
boys don't like yer paper. Will ye hang
or git?"
"I'll git, of course. How much time?"
"Five mlnlts!"
The man from Illinois didn't need
three. He had an extra shirt nnd pair
of boots, and picking them up he struck
out and down the trail and was seen no
more st Carson Flats.���Denver News.

Muny women suffer in silence ami drift along

should have Immediate assistance, but a natural modesty impelH them to shrink from exposing themselves to questions and probable
examinations of even their family physician.
It Is unnecessary. Without money or price you
can consult a woman, whose knowledge from
actual experience is greater than any local
physician  living.
Tin* following Invitation Is freely offered; accept it in the same spirit.
Women suffering from any form of female
weakness are invited to freely communicate
with Mrs. l'lnkhum at L*ynn', Mass. All letters
are received, opened, read and answered by
women only, thus hns been established the
eternal confidence between Mrs. Pinkham and
the women of America which has never been
broken, and hns induced more than 100,000 sufferers to write her for advice during the last
four months. Out of the vast volume of ex-
l*erienc< which she has to draw from, it if
more than possible that she has gained the
very knowledge that will help your case. She
asks nothing In return except your good will,
and her advice has relieved thousands. Surely
any woman, rich or poor, is very foolish If she
does not take advantage of this generous offer
of assistance.���Lydia K. Pinkham Medicine Co.,

THE DUNCAN-LARDO  MEETING.
Large Attendance and Strong Organic
y.atioti Effected.
Over one hundred leading citizens
attended the meeting at Olympic Hall
lasi Saturday evenl >". called to arouse
public Lnteresl of Kaslo buslni 11
In the opening to navigation nf Duncan and Lardo rivers and ii, effecting
an organization that would aid the Dominion government to push forward
such work as rapidly as possible. On
motion of Alderman Buchanan, Major
Green presided Harold Ralph was
chosen teraporar; seoi etary.
Short addresses were made explana-
sory of tl," ol>.j,'>'t of the meeting by
.lames McK. Anderson, Alderman <;.
O. Buchanan, Win, Simpson,, postmaster at Duncan City, D. McPhail and
Mayor Green.
Mr. Anderson argued that the trade
of that region naturally belongs to
Kaslo and about all that we havo to do
to get it is to reach out for it. The
Ball oreek miners all want to come
out this way instead of by Ferguson or
Trout Lake City. There aro some
things that the Provincial governraenl
should do for this country also to supplement the proposed river improvement by tho Dominion government.
Old trails should be improved aud now
ones built. Mining records of all country drained by the Duncan river should
be recorded here and tho Ainsworth
Division should be exl i >!' d to include
that country. Tlio ore. of that country
is supposed to be of lower grade than
that of the Slocan, but tliere are vast
bodies of it and ii improves with di pth,
Already the railways have their attention drawn to it, and if the Kaslo &
.Slocan does not build there soon, the
Canadian Pacific will. Mr. Anderson
favored au organization to hasten these
things.
Alderman Buchanan said that hi attention had bee i tally call
this region by a recent trip the, to
inspect some mining properties that
he owns between the Lardo landing
and the Trout lake trail. Ee endorsed
Mr. Anderson's remarks and closed by
stating that President Van Home of
tho ('. 1*. R. had on his recent trip
here informed him that if tho Provin-
eioi government will assist, the C. 1'.
U. will build through there during tho
poming year, a railway reaching from
Upper Arrow lake to Kootenay lake.
Mr. Buchanan thought that a good organization could bring much Influence
to bear to help thi* plan, by gathering
full and particular information for
tho use of the government and the
railway!.
Postmaster Simpson of Duncan City
said that the chief need at present was
trail building' and improvement, At
present one cannot takes pack horse
up the Duncan valley. The little steamer Idaho has been running lome this
year up Howser lake as tar as Bear
ereek, but only a small part of tho business could be handled In that way.
Mr. Mcl'hail said that, the govern-
incut is already two   yoars   behind   in
trail building lo that region, and U it
could be induced Io move now, we. hud
bettor ask for wagon roads. The tonnage for transportation is s'nflipienl
now u, justify either a railway or
steamboat, or both,
Mayor Greon thought that tho dll.'-
tory condition was duo to Gold Commissioner Graham of Revelstoke and
ox-Gold Commlseioner Fitzstubbs.
Now that Fit'.'.stubbs had a successor
friendly to and Interested in this region more might be expected.
An organization wai then effected to
be known as   the   Lardo-Dunean   Im-: \,,,,,
proveinent'aBsociation and the follow- j jjutji
ing officers   wore  elected:    President,   Payne.'.'.".'.'.

True us the) Needle to tbe Polo
Is tlie success of judicious   advertising.   It  is   not  so  much a questionY
whether to advertise or not,   but how.
Many business men  are  conscious  off
the fact that lo spite of  merit,   theirij
goods are not fully pushed to  the fronlSf
of the consuming masses.    They knowyj
that something should be done  in  the
way of advertising, but havo  not   the.
time to devote to the writing of adve.
tisements that pay.   To those who havcll
not the time, we say, give us a  trial |
We are always delighted to be of as-]
sistance to our patrons.    We can ii;: ui
an ad for you that will pay.
