Editor News���Now that both sides
havo been fairly heard from at their
own meetings it is possible to draw
fair and just conclusions as to what we
have-to choose between. What have
wo seen? X)n the one hand the Premier, most undoubtedly a very able
man, as even his opponents have had
to admit in their local organ, has euinc
forward and given a plain and full account of all his actions, and the reasons therefor. DTho small details and
dilliculties arising on all sides of all
questions, and of wliich the public,
which does not closely fellow parliamentary debates and reports, nevel
oven hoars or conceives, have been
fully shown to us v. itli the con Hie*, ing
bearings they have had on each case,
Mr. Retallack has spoken on all occasions as a sensible and forcible man
of sound business ability. Thu Premier, his supporter, and friendly organs have pinned and exposed lie after
lis of tbe Opposition fault-finders. Mis-
representation, exaggeration, misleading and cowardly Insinuation���these
have been prove! beyond, doubt to be
the weapons upon which they rely to
cut their way to c Bice and thc gratification of self-interests
Mr. Clill'o has been marie to look absolutely sick upon tiie very platform
from wbicb he gavi forth his baseless
and fraudulent statements. Mr. Kellie
has beon taught that his was not a
a three-eard-Mnri- -man's chance of a
lifetime to dupe I he public; whilst Mr.
Carney, with tan s of blighted social
ambition and cowardly iiuiondos, has
l��ft an evil taste in the mouths of hit*
auditors wherever he has been, an?.
proved to all lovers of decency and fair
play tho excellent discernment displayed by Mr. Retallack in refusing to
associate with blm in the past.
Mr. Green, the c'uiof, has given such
a display of weakness, incapacity to
rise to'the occasion, inability of competent criticism of his opponents, together with such sinister llashos of unami-
ahility, petty malice and narrow-mindedness of a most significant and unpromising nature, as to stir more to
pity than to disgust.
Tho gang���thore is really no other
word for them���that havo followed liim
and thoir barbarous behaviour and
Whitochapol manners havo done him
no good either, and his decent well-
wishers have sat shamed and silent in
their midst.
A man is known by his company,
and Mr.Greeu may well exclaim,"Save
me from my friends I"
And those!���theso are the men to
whom wo are asked to entrust the government of our Province and tho special interests of one of its most important mining districts!

The following changes in the British
Columbia mining laws should bo carefully studied by those interested in
mining in this Province:
First of these refers to the location
of fractions. In oil fractions surveyed
from now on, whether staked correctly
Or not, the surveyor may adopt the
boundary lines of the surrounding
claims, provided no side exceeds 1600
feet in length. In other words, the locator is entitled to tho vacant ground
that ho claims, even if lie docs not
stake it it, such a manner as to include
it all, which he seldom does.
By a recent decision oi tho courts a
prospector loot a claim because of inability to seeiuv the post necessary to
mark the location. The amendment
provides that in cases where claims arc
staked above the timber line, or the
prospector can not secure the necessary posts, he may erect monuments of
earth or stone.
Iii staking an extension the posts are
���ifteu planted so as to form a wedge-
shape fraction between two ends of the
two olalms. Those fractions have often incurred great expense, not only in
recording and surveying, but in casus
where tbey carry the lead, and thus b>:-
come of such value as to promote liti-
gation. Tbe amended act authorizes
tbe surveyor to include such fraction,
provided it does not cover more than
51.65 acres, the area of u full claim,
and provided further that two location
posts are together.
Ry failure to record assessment work
within the required ported of one year,
either through oversight or the misunderstanding of partnership Interests,
valuable claims have been lust. Now,
if a prospector fails to record the work
within a year, he has 80 days' additional time in which to make tho record by
payment of an extra *10.
Another ohange regarding the as*
aessment work is in that particular
which called for work to the amount, of
$100 each year. Now, a miner can do
and record as many assessments as he
pleases in a year by paying tho recording fee lor each assessment done to the
extent of $100.
ln case anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of Improvement and crown grant, tho contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately and file a plan made and signed
by an authorized provincial laud surveyor with the writ.
To obtain a crown grant in ISiHl it
was necessary to do assessment work to
tlie amount of J5Q0 and to have the
claim surveyed, which meant another
$100. In 18117 the act was amended so
as to provide that up to May 1,1898,tbe
cost of such Biirvey should count as
work done on the claim, not to exceed
$100. In plain English, it counted as
an assessment and as work toward the
crown grunt. A survey generally costs
$100. Tlie last legislature extends the
tpne to May I, 1899.
Hereafter, in adverse proceedings in
connection with the titlo to mineral
claims, before any court, each party to
tbf proceedings shall give affirmative
evidence of title. Heretofore tho burden of proof was on tbe contestant.
Tho fee for recording assessment
work has boen reduced from $2.75 to
$2.50. Heretofore the feo for recording
assessments has beon 25 conts higher
thBn other fees.
Anybody who pulls down a legal post
eroded to'mark a boundary or location
of a mineral claim, or any writing by
law required to be thereon, is liable to
imprisonment for six months or a lino
of $250, or both. This is supposed to
bo directed particularly toward pro-
venting the use of old postB by people
wno restake a claim and sometimes destroy evidences of a prior location.

as fortieth in the class. Another cias-i
of thiriy-iive Investigated showed Hint
six wore allowed the freedom of the

had spent two or three years passing

of fifteen years of age had spent nine

The so-called bread riots that lately
look place in Milan and other cities of
Italy Indicated a condition of affairs
that was more desperate than appeared on Ihc surface. It Is true (hat
the people were suffering for bread, for
It so happened that In every great
wheat-producing country In the world
the crop of 1HII7 was a short one. lu
Germany, France and Kngland. where
a considerable portion of the wheat
consumed is usually of domestic production, almost the entire consumption
had to be obtained abroad. The storehouses, besides the I'nlted Stales, from
Which those countries have depended
for their wheat have been Russia, India, Egypt and Argentina, but last
year ltussia hml no surplus to export,
India had very little, Egypt next to
none, and Argentina harvested only
enough for home consumption. The
result was that bread was dear and the
people were hungry. Italy was in a
worse situation than any of the countries importing wheat for domestic
consumption, she had Impoverished
herself by attempting io maintain a
standing as a military and naval power that was beyond her possibilities.
What Germany and France did. Italy
Strove to duplicate, she wished to be
classed as one of the great powers of
Europe, and she drew Ihe life blood out
of her people in the attempt, realizing
only failure. She entered Into a triple
alliance with Germany and Austria,
and tiled to maintain a position of
equality with each. With a population
of about 80,000,000, she kept a permanent peace establishment of 210,280
men, with a compulsory reserve of
1,911,000. The members of this reserve, while not COUStantly in service,
were compelled lo spend from three to
nineteen years In the army, which was
a fearful drain on the productive energies of the country. Besides this large
QUmber of soldiers tIn* Italian navy
had -l.T'.M men on the active list and
18,000 on the reserve list, making a total of nearly 2,200,000 men who were
not only withdrawn from Ihe various
industries of the kingdom, but had to
be supported In Idleness. The result
was (hat general stagnation In business and enormous taxation were universal in the country, laisir was unemployed, and those who found work receive starvation wages. The increase
in the price of bread, even though
small, brought want and hunger to
people who nre always on the verge of
starvation. The high price of bread
was only an incident that drove tho
people to riots which showed the really
intolerable condition of affairs all
over Italy. Thnt country was attempting to do what the frog did when lt
sought to rival the ox, and possibly a
similar result may follow the attempt.
|       mm hero,  m m
ll was a pretty scene! The trees had
the abundance of verdant foliage that
belongs to happy .lune; the grass
seemed more than usually rich and
green and ihe wild flowers more abundant than ever before -there was a rural
bridge   over   a   deep,   rushing   stream
thai fed a mill dam some distance beyond; ami roses clambered over the
broken rails of the bridge and twined '
their  wild  tendrils  about   an  old   ti

seat. <in the rustic sen was another

mull kerchief, And this had happened
SO often that tiie rose might very well
lie said lo be washed iu tlt-w.
Her name was Kate, and she was
very angry with herself because the

she was a very sweet liltle woman and
could not even hurl a flower without
regretting il: and presently she bent
her graceful figure and pulled the wild
anemones aud the few late violets, and,
having reached Ihe rustic seat, she
added a rose or two and sal down.
"It's a perfectly lovely morning!" she
murmured,  and    pinned    the    flowers.
among the folds of the mull kerchief.
"I   wonder  where  she  has  taken   the

She   stopped  and   looked   anxiously

And, smoothing out the eniniplei!
paper, she began to reuid the written
words once more, though she already
knew them by heart:
"If you will see me on Wednesday wc
can talk the uiatier over. I have s]>okeii
���with my lawyer, and he has consulted
with yours, nnd a separation can be arranged without any public scandal���at
least. I hope so. I would call at the

only cause a scene. So, If you will

bridge���you know where we us*2d to

If you would only let me tell you everything you would find that I am not so
very much to blame���but I won't speak
of that. Because, of course, I know you
wish to leave me, and I will make no

And by this time rhe tears were brimming over, but she wip-i them softly
away; and. Instead of (rushing the

looked al her wnleh and found it was
not quite 10*80. "O, he isn't late, after
all���1 must have been very early���I will
go and find Annette and the child."
And as she rose tliere was Ihe crackling of n twig under n hasty footstep
and Kate Seidell stood face to face with
her husband, He was very pale, and
his lips looked pnllld and drawn with
the effort to keep from trembling. She
had flushed deeply when their eyes
met, but now the color eblied away
from her girlish face and she said COB*
*I am so glad!���I mean not to keep

"Vou nre very good." he said; "but

"It Is all I can do, now���to try and
please yon," he answered, weakly; and
the perspiration was like dew on his
brow. He took off his hat and stammered something about Its being "awfully hot."
"Yes. perhaps you have walked fast-
It Is very warm and you look tired.
Won't you sit down?" She moved a
little further away to make room for
liim, and he dropped Into the place beside hel.
"We used to sny tliere was Just room
enough for two," he added with a smile,
and she turned her head away -perhaps to pinch a rose, for she
snapped one off short aud then threw
lt awiy.
"Am I to see baby to-day?" he nsked
after a few minutes of awkward silence. "I haven't seen hlm, you kuow,
since "
"Oh, yes," she answered hurriedly,
and, looking nbout. "there they are, he
and Annette, yonder In the woods: they
are coming this way; oh, Sidney,"
she cried, suddenly turning toward
hlm, "how could you? 1 cau never,
never forgive you." r
"I could never dare to ask you."
They were almost the very words of
Pauline and Claude. She remembered
in a moment thnt It hnd been the flrst
play Sidney had taken her to see after
they had nintried; and how often they
bad laughed at that pair of lovers,
each dying to forgive und be forgiven,
and neither daring to say the right
word. She used to think she could
never be so foolish as that, aud now���
It was getting very awkward, for this
was a far more serious matter, and she
knew that she could never, never forgive.  What woman could ?
And then she heard the laughter and
shouts of little Sidney, who bad Just
caught sight of his father nnd was now
running wildly to welcome him.. It was
a fortunate Interruption to a scene that
was Hearing a painful climax, and she
was very glad to take a step or two
towards the laughing boy. who waa
already flying across the bridge, followed by his nurse; then there waa e
crash, a shriek; the side of the bridge
was gaping outward; tbe maid stood
wringing tier hands; the golden curls
that had floated a moment above the
running waters, were gone. '
It whs no sudden, so inexplicable that
the frantic mother could not realize at
flrst what had happened. When ihe
did. ihe air resounded with her agonized criess, and It was the nurse girl
who was the first to see that .Sidney
had already reached his child Just iu
time. '
"Courage, ma'am, courage:" the girl
whispered, while she supported her
mistress. "See-be ls safe! His father
has hlm���look, look! The darling has
his arms aliout the master's neck, an'
he's hoggin' an' kissing of hlm just as
If nothing had happened at all:"
The girl assisted her mistress back to
the little rustle seat, and when the
father and child had reached the young
mother, little Sidney was already
laughing with delight; and as he put
one dripping arm about her neck, he
drew ber close till her face touched her
husband's face.
"Kate." whispered Sidney, "Kate,
may 1 beg forgiveness uow?"
"0, Sidney: I hnve been so proud
and heartless! 1 wns Jealous and vain
���and���and- selfish and unfair: I
wouldn't listen to you, and al! the time
I knew you neyer cared for that
woman:   Can you forgive me, too?''
"Just give tne a chance, that's all,"
and then two pairs of arms met and
clasped each other close about the con-
qnering hero, who seemed to And himself quite suddenly an object of secondary Importance.
It then occurred to Annette that Master Sidney would have n dreadful cold
unless his dripping garments were
changed Immediately; so she carded
him off In pursuit of dry clothing.���

Thc Kaiser's Stenographer.
It Is not generally known that under
the present Emperor a new ottlee has
been created, that of personal stenographer to his majesty. William I. bnt
rarely delivered a speech, and, when he
did, the text was always decided on beforehand. In consultation with Prince
Bismarck, aud the monarch either
learned the speech by heart or read lt
from a manuscript, He knew that he
possessed no gift of language and had
no confidence in his ability to Improvise
in public. William II.. soon after he
came to the throne, gave orders that a
stenographer should always in* present
during his speeches, whether at home
or ou travel. This duty is fulfilled in
Germany by one of the official stenographers of the relchslag, who took down
the speeches of the K.mperor and Prince
Henry at Kiel. The Kmperor himself
supervised Ihe shorthand writer's transcript before it was transmitted to
Wolf's telegram bureau���the German
Keiiler. The speeches of the Kmperor,
sent over the official wire, are therefore
Ipslsslma verba. A different shorthand

Spoknne. June 27.���An option for 30
days has been given on the Republic
mine This is no longer a tumor. Patrick Clark, the largest holder of Republic
stock, admits thai such is the case.
"We gave a 30-duy option on the Republic about a. week ugu,'' said Mr. Clark
when asked for a statement on the subject. "1 am not at liberty at this time
to name the terms of the deal nor to say
to whom we hnve given the option. I
muy say. however, that the option is for
30 days for the purpose of permitting nu
examination of the property, and experts
are now making the examination on behalf of the parties interested."
Mr. Clark declined to discuss the deal
for the sale of the mine further, ll was
learned, however, from a most reliable
source thnt it is the British America Corporation which hus tied tin- property up
for 30 days and thut $8,000,000 is the
price. Hector Mac Hoc nnd other experts
in the employ of the big syndicate ure
known to be in Republic. Parties bearing close relationship to the Hritish
America Corporation iisscrt that tliere is
little doubt that the deal will go tlirougli.
Hon. C. 11. Mackintosh, managing director of the British America Corporation, came down from Rossland late Inst
week and was asked about the option on
the Republic.
"1 am much annoyed." said he, "on account of these reports thut either I or the
British America Corporation have bonded the Republic mine or taken an option J
on  it.    There  is  no  truth   in  Ilie  state- |
meiiis to that effect and no foundation j
for the rumor. 1 want ulso to enter nn
emphatic denial that Whitaker Wright
or any of the parties with whom lie is
interested iii mining iii the northwest is
concerned in any bond on the Republic
mine. 1 know that such is not the case,
und you ran say most positively that
neither the British America Corporation
nor any ollicial of it is in any wuy concerned in any bond or option on tlie prop*
erty. <bi the contrary, I may add that 1
am iu receipt of a telegram from Whitaker Wright advising me that the corporation will not buy uny more proper-
lies for nt lenst seven months So it will
be that length of time nt least before we
eun begin to consider properties in Bu*
I reka camp."
Governor Mackintosh is evidently right
in staling that the British America Corporation hns not taken the option on the
Republic mine. It is well known thnt it
is not the intention of the corporation to
