Bill to Parallel it Favorably Reported at Ottawa.
Kaslu Board of Trade Instructs President Buchanan to Defeat the Bill if
-Strong Resolutions.
Last Wednesday Vice-President Ger
rard of tho Board of Trade received a.
telegram from 1'resident 0. O. Bueli
anan, now at ot'awa, saying that tho
bill for the extension of tho Nakusp &
Slocan branch of the C. P, K. railway
from Throe Folks to Whitewater, had
passed the committee, but might yet
be successfully opposed if the board
desired him to tight it.
Viee-Prosident Gerrard immediately
called together tho council of the
Board of Trade, and tho situation was
discussed. A committeo was appointed
that drafted tho following resolutions
which were laid before a meeting of
the full board yesterday morning and
unanimously Adopted!
'���Whereas, Tlie K. & S. Railway Co.
is a company working under a charter
from the Province,and capital lias boen
invested on the faith af that, line being
not paralleled; nnd
"Whereas, The building of a parallel
line from Throe Porks to Whitowater
will cat into tho moat profitable portion
of tho K. & S. traffic and leave tho balance Of the ruiU.ay of comparatively
little value; nnd
"Whereas, Tho strangling of this
railway by thoC. 1'. R.wlll destroy the
hope of getting capital interested in
Independent linos here in British Columbia and a'! competition with tho 0.
P. R., and leave the Provinoo at its
its mercy Jam! under its dominance:
and
"Whereas, The Slocan district has
beon developed by the building of tho
K. & S. Ry., an't ii" requirement* are
satislled by s.iid railway, and It is li.s-
lteved that the building this yoar of a
line of railway into tlio Lardo-Duucan
country and other enterprises tending
to develop tbo country will be defeated
if this charter be granted; therefore,
belt
"Resolved, that tlio President of the
Board of Trado be instructed to oppose
tho granting ol said .chartor as strongly as possible."
In accordance with the foregoing tho
following dispatch was wired to Mr.
Buchanan:
Kaslo, B. C, April 21,181M.
G. O. Buchanan. Ottawa! Ont.:
Full meeting of Kuslo Board of Trade
Instruct you to oppose charter to
Whitewater as strongly as possible. It
moans the strangling of tho K. & S.Ky.
and destroys every hopeof getting capital Interested In independent linos
here, and destroys competition with 0.
P. R. ln British 'Columbia. See Tramway Act, 181M, prohibiting paralleling,
not disallowed. Resolution mailed.
A MO. !.t'<AS, I'res. pro loin.
The allusion to tho Tramway Act of
1894 ls explained as follows: It was a
Provincial act prohibiting the paralleling of the EC. & S. ity. by any other
line. This act, It is said, not being
disapproved at Ottawa during the first
year of Its life, is in effect now a Dominion act, and tho Dominion ls thus
forestalled from nullifying It.
In the absence of Vice-President Garrard at yesterday's meeting, Alex Lucas was chosen president pro tern.
There were also present Secretary
Martin and Messrs.Cockle, Allison,Irv-
ing, Twisg) George T. Kane, Whiteside, Byers, McGregor, Young, King
find Tumor.
NOT YET DEPEATBD.
amended by reducing the capital stock
from $2,500,000 to $1,500,000, Tho question put to the house last night was for
tho second reading of the bill as
amended. By a majority of 20 the
house negatived the motion and the
bill wns accordingly dropped from the
order paper. The officers of tho house
state tbat this is tlie lirst time since
confederation that a measure has been
rejected in this particular way.
A bill so disposed of, however, can
be revived and placed on tho orders
again for a future day, if the house
should decide to consider it again at
tho stage at which it was dropped. Mr.
, Blair had with him in favor of tho bill
Sir Richard Cartwright and Messrs.
Dobol, Fitzpatrick, Mulock, Paterson
and Sifton. Mr. Tarte carried only one
member of the cabinet with him
against the bill, but he carried tho
movement to kill it. Of the British
Columbia members, Messrs. Bostock
and Morrison supported tho bill, and
Messrs. Earlo, Maxwell and Mclnnes
voted against it.

Ottawa, April 16.���While tlio Kettle
Rivor railway bill was thrown out by
the commons last night, it is understood that it will bo restored to tho order paper on Monday and another attempt made to pass it. A large number of friends of tho bill were away
last night. If the bill passes, the
Grand Trunk would not only be able to

the northwest ovor the Crow's Nost

Some of the Litter Detail*.
Ottawa, April It).���Mr. Bodwell, the
representative of tho Kettle River
railway project, is quietly preparing
for another attempt to secure the pass-
ago of the tyill at Ottawa. Members
coming in from the country say public
opinion is docidodly in favor of the
charter! and thoy urgo that as thero is
nothing to lose and everything to 'rain.
an effort will be made to secure the reinstatement of the bill on tlie order paper. It is said that if Mr. Corbin does
not got a chartor ho will build a mail
lino just south of the border in the U.
S. and construct branch lines at various points along the main lino that
will run to tho border at points where
mines aro located.

the following lottor which is solf-ox-
planatory:
Montreal, April 11, 1808.
.1. Bs McArtliur, Esq., Rossland:
Dear Sir���Many thanks four your letter of recent date, upon the subject of
tho divorsion of the Crow's Nest line
from the foot of Kootenay lake to Trail
Instead of building via Nolson as contemplated by our agreement with the
government. 1 do not think wo would
be inclined to consider any departure
from our original plans, nor are we of
tho opinion that, any practicable route
for a railway can oe found between the
south end of Kootonay lake aud the Columbia rivor viu the Salmon liver
without goin^ south into IJ. S. territory. .Meantime, I have requested our
engineers to make an examination, so
that we may have the necessary data at
hand If at any time in tlio future wodo-
cldo to build a branch lino through
there.   Yours very truly,
T. G. Shauohne^y.
In vlow of the foregoing, the following from the Kuskonook Searchlight of
April 20, becomes significant:
Burn's party of engineers left the
other day to run a line through the Summit creek pass six miles south of
here to the Salmo, thence on* to
the Columbia river. This is the route
the Rossland board of Trade petitioned
the C. P. R. to adopt to get to Rossland
instead of by way of Nelson. If the road
is built'through the obove pass Nelson
will be communicated with by boat with
Kuskonook as the transfer point.

Washington, D. C, April 21.���Great
excitement exists in Washington ou
receipt of the news that .Spain has declared war. President McKinley will
call for I00,(w)l) volunteers. Tho U. S.

Toronto, Ont., April   18.-A   special
to tho Globo from Ottawa says:   The
decision  of  congress  to    wage    war
against Spain, brings up tho question
of tho relations of  Canadians   to the
combatants while   the  conflict  is in
progress.   The attitude of this country
will be entirely  gqvornod by  instructions received from time to time from
the colonial ofllce.   Hon David   Mills,
advisor of tho govornment on constitutional questions, states that the sale of
coal and similar supplies to war vessels
ol either Spain or tho United Statos in
Canadian ports must bo governed  by
the decision of the imperial authorities.
If coal Is declared contraband of  war
by the colonial office the ruling will
apply to Canada as well as to Jamaica
and Other ports of the West Indies.   It
is not expected there will be any difficulty experienced in maintaining strict
neutrality, although in the event of naval operations in tho North Atlantic
tho warships of both   countries might
be compelled to uso tho harbor at times.
If the war bo long oontinued and Spain
goes Into the  business of preying on
United States commerce, Montrei 1 and
Halifax will become for a time most
important sailing points for  European
traffic.   Even if the  Spaniards should
be beaton in pitched battles at sea and
their navy scattered, there  will   be a
disposition as long ai hostilities last to

The fine $-1,000 ore house of
i'ayne mine was totally destroyed
lire with contents last Tuesday ovei
at ti:.'io, just after the day shift had
come off and were at supper. The Causi
of tho firo is unknown, but is tin ighl
to have been a defective flue of the
stove at tho brake station. Tho whole
building seemed to be in flames from
the start.
From H. M. Richardson and Robert
Pollock, who, with several other Payne
employes, aro at tho Adams House.'.he
following details wero learned: The.
machinery destroyed included the gasoline engine, ore crusher and hoisting
machinery. Tho tramway is uninjnrcd
excepting'the hoadwoiks. There were
also 10 cases af dynamite No. 2 and 20
cases of gasoline burned, which all occurred without explosion as them was
no concussion or condition that would
generate gas. Tho total loss is est!
mated at $10,000.
Of tbe 110 men employed, 50 have
boen laid off until repairs are made and
machinery replaced. This will take
SOVeral weeks. Tho ,'! 1-2 mile i ol
wagon road to the mine is blocked bv
snow at present, not having been used
since tho tram was put In operation. In
another week but for this accident, 50
more mon would have been put at work.

Two Oklahoma Girls Are United States
Deputy Marshals.
It Is not infrequent these days for
nn officer of the law* to name a woman
as a deputy. But she is nearly always
what In known ns an office deputy. She
performs mere clerical duties and never
takes to the held. But Oklahoma has
net the pace. United States Marshal
C. H. Thompson, of (iuthrle, has appointed two women as deputies for
Held work.
That a woman Rhottld choose the vo
���cation of professional thief taker in the
most civilized portion of the land would
lie strange enough.   It is infinitely mors
MISS MAMIE FORBETT.
*o when she chooses Held duty in 'lie
worst territory in the Union. Criniln
% Is in Oklahoma and iu Indian Territory, the district wftero these two girls
���for they are maidens���must operate,
are of the most desperate and dangerous class. More lives are lost among
.Federal officers in a year there than In
nil tlie rest of the nation together. So
It would seem that these girls possess
metal of exceptional kind to willingly
undertake such duties.
The young women are Miss S. M.
Burette and Miss Mamie Fossett They
are of thnt adventurous class of females who Invaded the newly opened
territory in search of homesteads. They
lire young, fairly good-loi��.;lng, wel.-ed-
ucnted, fearless nnd Independent. Their
duties are by no means confined to
keeping Marshal Thompson's books.
Whan they took the oath of office and
assumed their duties It was with tlie
distinct understanding that they would
serve the Government just a* would
any other deputy marshal.   They wete
tlon of city garbage, and other waste
products. The Inventor, Charles W.
Smith, who has been working several
years on the scheme, claims to have
discovered a process by which he can
convert soft coal Into a superior Quality of hard coal. From one ton of common coal he can, he asserts, obtain
1.300 pounds of anthracite coal, 300
pounds of tar and from six to nine
thousand feet of Illuminating gas. The
process, tested at the Mollne police
station in the presence of the city officials and professional men, showed
great results with ordinary garbage.
One quart of garbage, placed in a retort, yielded a quantity of hard coal
and tar, besides a sufficient quantity
of good illuminating gas to turn over
two liours in an ordinary burner.
It ls estimated that a plant costing
��20,000 will consume the garbage of a
city of 30,000, and yield gas sufficient to
run the water works system. Such a
coal converting plant would be especially valuable to large manufactories.
Sawmills would thus be aide to utilize
sawdust and other waste products to
nn extent sufficient to run their plants.
The inventor says he will establish a
plant In Mollne.
DEAF AND DUMB WONDER.
Claims to Be  a   Hebrew,  and Writes
Language of Moses.
There has been ln this city for the
last few dnys a young Afrlcnn negro
who claims to be a Hebrew. He came
here from New Haven, nnd Is trying to
accumulate money enough to go back
to Africa. If he is what he represents
himself to be, and if what he claims is
true, he ls quite an Interesting character. He carries a pad of paper with
him nnd a pencil and answers all questions by writing them ln Hebrew aud
Loschen Khodlsh. What incites tho
most wonder is that he writes Loschen
Khodlsh very rapidly. It Is the language of the books of Moses, and ls
made a special study of, Spoken and
written with ease oujy by the rabbis
and highly educated Hebrews.
This negro was sent to one of the rabbis of Hartford, who is perfectly satis-
fled that he is a Hebrew. lie says that
he came from n large town lu Africa,
where there is a tribe of about twenty
thousand black Hebrews who speak
Loschen Khodlsh aud are quite prosperous. He also says that his father Is a
rabbi lu that town, and that is why his
father took the trouble to tench hlm to
write tli^se languages, which needed nn
extra amount of labor on account of his
being dc.i.' ind dumb. He says his people do uot i'ii' write Loschen Khodlsh,
but lt ls their s, "aklng language as
well. He left home n few years ago,
nnd has seen n good deal of tlie world.
In each town he hunts up the Jewish
section, and tliere they give hlm clothes,
food and money. He is now homesick,
and Intends to go back to Africa as soon
as he gets money enough. He showed
some money which they had collected
for him at New Huven. What surprises him, he writes, is thut no Hebrew'
knows of bis countrymen lu Africa.���

Free Passes for All.
It was circus day; the ordinary large
crowd was there, standing round and
listening to the music aud loafing generally. The small lioys were tliere
waiting for any possible chances which
might offer of "getting In." A man
went up to a group of anxious urchins.
"Want to go In, boys?" eatd he.
"Yes, we do," came ln a chorus from
tbe lads. Tbey marched up ln front of
the door-tender.
"Count these boys," said the man;
and the guardsman of the great exhibition checked the grinning lads off with
his linger as Ihey rushed by hlm, and
scattered on the Inside.
"One, two, three," counted the doorkeeper, and finally announced "eleven."
"All right," said the man. "All right;
that's all," and he turned away.
"Hold on there," said the circus man.
"Are you going to pay for these boysV
"Pay for 'em I" said the stranger.
"Well, I fancy not. I said nothing
about paying for 'em. I just wanted
to know how rasny there were. Ton
circus men are good at figures, and I
ain't. All I asked you to do waa to
count them.   Much obliged."
And away he went, astonishment at
the surprising cheek preventing the
door-keeper from making any further
effort to stop him.

A telegram from Mollne, IU., says:

Tlpptnjt Very hike Gambling.
A New York caterer, wheu speaking
of the tipping evil the other day, said
he would like to abolish lt in his place,
but that this couldn't be done.
"I give my waiters $25 a month and |
their board," he continued. "If I were
to offer them $110 with tipping prohibited they would one and all go away.
Yet I doubt whether they average $1
a day, which Is less than the difference
In tips. My place Is a modest one, you
know, and few tips are higher than 10
cents. Many of my customers, too, are
women, who seldom tip at all.
"In my opinion the attraction In tipping to a waiter, that Is, thc reason he
prefers It to higher wages with lt prohibited, Is the element of chance. He'd
rather have $1 a day aud the possibility
of making two or three dollars more ln
tips than a certain $2, not so uvuch because of the nddltonal gain Involved as
because of the uncertainty. It has the
zest of gambling. He cotmtp each dime
he gets during the day, and when the
aggregate reaches the higher figure Just
named If not the lower, he feels nil tbe
triumph of a gambler who has broken
the bank. Take away tipping and you
remove this stimulus which has added
Interest to his day's work, and deprive
him of what has made his toll a comparative pleasure. Even when he gets
less than the sum I think my waiters
average, $1, he feels like the gambler
who considered that next to the pleasure ot winning was that of losing."
Rapid Decline of (Ine of the Ugliest
Beasts on Karth.
Florida tourists note a sharp advance
ln the price of alligator material, and
nlso In the raw material in life. This
ls owing to the large decrease In the
supply. Diminutive live alligators have
advanced from 25 cents each to 50
cents, and larger ones In proportion; In
some Instances a greater per cent, is
charged for the full-grown reptiles, for
they are much scarcer than are the
baby alligators.
This Is oeennse of the sportsman and
his deadly gun, who shoots the saurian
out of mere wantonness nud n desire to
make a record. The Seminole Indians
also conduct a war of extermination
ngaitist the alligators, but as they kill
for revenue only they are, in a measure,
excusable. They also trap the smaller
ones, from the tiny bain* 10 or 12 inches
In length to the "youngster" of two,
tliriH* or four feet.
The baby 'gators are boxed by the
curio dealers and sold to ladies who
affect grent interest lu the ugly things
for pets. As the 'gates only live on air
and muddy water and an occasional
chunk of meat every three or four days,
they are uot troublesome. The Indians,
knowing of the scarcity of alligators In
all of the Florida streams, have imitated the paleface curio denier nnd
charge more for their 'gators.
The baby alligators, while not valuable for their small hides, are killed
by the hundreds and mounted.    Some
next Legislature will come to the rescue of the friendless alligators.
Two Acres Enough   In  Belgium.
What many an American farmer falls
to do ou 100 acres, the thrifty Hollander In Belgium easily does on two acres,
namely, support a large family and
lay by something for a rainy dny. He
does it by making the most of every
inch, by heavy manuring, allowing no
waste places. His two acres are surrounded by a ditch of running water.
Tlie typical two-acre Belgium farm
contains a patch of wheat or rye and
another of barley,'another fair portion
grows potatoes. A row of cablmge
grows all around ou the sloping sides
of the ditches with a row of onions
just Inside, leaving bare walking room
between them and the grain. The
shade trees found the house are pear
trees. Every foot of land is made to
produce. He keeps pigs and chickens.
We refer to this as Illustrating the possibilities of laud production. In Bel-
glum ti,iK)0,000 people, chiefly farmers,
live ou a piece of laud the size of tlie
State of Maryland. They furnish au
object lesson on successful farming.���

" Stay Where You're Happy."
I remember once listening to a sermon preached by Dr. Talraage. It la
now twelve years ago, but 1 never forgot one sentence of tt: "Stay where
you're happy." It sounds trite to say
that a contented mind ls a man's or a
woman's greatest possession, but It ls
as true now as the day It was first uttered. And we would all be happier If
we believed lt more than we do. We
always show our own Incapacity when
we envy the capacities of others, and
this ls true of -other people's possessions. If we had them we would not
be a particle happier; we only think
we would be. No matter how little we
have, we always have plenty to be
thankful for.���Ladles' Home Journal.

baby alligator standing upon his hind
feet nnd playing a violin with Its forefeet. Others are nrrayed as waiters
offering some article for sale or holding a lamp to light visitors to a tank
holding a 10-foot or 18-Toot live saurian.
Alligators three or four feet In length,
mounted serve as grotesque advertisements and appear to be "so natural"
that the stranger Is frequently lu doubt
whether "the tldng ls alive" or not, and
make a detour iu order to be on the
safe side.
Very few colored people are successful lu catching large alligators. There
seems to be a mutual distrust and antipathy on both sides. While the alligator Is not always looking for a fight, but
desires to be let alone, he will fight a
"darky" on sight. As soon as he spies
a negro he will dive and rise at about
the proper place and land him, or rather
sweep him In, If within reaching distance. Not so In tbe case of white
hunters. The alligator will swim away,
unless Its young ls attacked, and then
lt will crawl out on shore and use lta
huge tall as a battering ram. One
stroke will knock a man senseless.
The scarcity of the alligator crop ts
now a live Issue, and as this ls one of
Florida's attractions It Is urged that
something be done to stop this wholesale slaughter.   It Is possible that the

\ Peril  llcn'iC'ilU'    The action noted elsewhere
.1 of the Kaslo Board of Trade
*;. ,-.       Is timely and appropriate,
KaslO & SlOCail Ky. Thc Haslet Sloean By. is
Kaslo's great stand-by. Any attempt to crush it or freeze
It out of existence is very properly resented.
It cannot be conceived Unit tho Dominion Parliament
would deliberately over-ride an act of our Provincial Legislature, especially when tbat act lias previously been rati-
lied at Ottawa. Doubtless nil that will bo needed is u proper presentation of the case at Ottawa, which will now
doubtless bo given. The Canadian Pacific Ry. is becoming
very bold in its demands of the Dominion Parliament, but
that body will certainly draw the line at such action as this,
that would strangle competition and kill towns.
The octopus appeared considerably surprised when tlio
railway committee at Ottawa struck out its blanket charter
provision, a measure that would have permitted it to build
branch lines any where in British Columbia without even
��� he formality of asking Parliament's further concent. It
may be equally surprised to learn that there are oilier
I dings that even so great a monopoly as thc 0. P. 1!. may
nol have for tlio asking, when their refusal or granting becomes a question of life or death with other smaller but
nODO the less important enterprises.
The United States
Drifting
It does not take the eye
of a sage to observe that
.,,. the  United  States, un-
I oward Imperialism. der ���.,. rule of th0 poW
republican pur-ty, is rapidly drifting toward imperialism.
Chore would perhaps be nothing meriting especially adverse criticism in this, if that dominant party had thc courage to come out plainly and say what il apparently thinks,
viz., that a monarch, or at least a very strongly centralized
government is the form mostly to be desired.
Tho tendency of that party is to unduly exalt those
vested witli ollicial authority and lo unduly retire the voieo
of llie people. Which their forefathers had taught them was
'lie Voice of Cod. Whenever Speaker Reed, the czar of the
1: B House of Representatives, suppresses or over-rules
the will of the majority, which he commonly does by the
party lash and his east-iron disciplinary met hods, all the republican press straightway applaud him as a "strong man."
When President -McKinley succeeds through bond in-
t.M-sts unci Wall street pressure in. getting both liouso and
senate to forego their very evident desiro to see the present
Cuban republic recognized, bis admirers exclaim, "Why,
that surely is righl. Ought not thc president's views to bo
recognized?" As if his views are of any more worth than
when he was a member of tlio same congress that he now
seeks to overshadow. The tendency to exalt the executive
to a monarch's place is clearly shown in the following brief
extract from last Saturday night's speech of Senator Hale:
-"The chief executive is tho nearest approach to a ruler
that this country knows. Shall he be opposed?'' And why
should he not be opposed, if wrong? Are rulers infallible?
In the minds of many, ex-PresldeQt Crover Cloveland
btands ont as an illustrious statesman, because ho deliberately ignored OOOgl'esS and every body else, and did or
rather attempted to do whatever his .irmy-mule nature
prompted him to dOs Their thoughts logically followed
out, would load directly to soma ; uoh conclusion as tills:
Why go through the form of electing a senate and house of
pn*jTOtatlvc8 at all? Why uot let the president attend
to it *U? At least tho president uud bhs courts might, with
an occasional Injunction from tho latter.
Aa a matter of fact, there is moro freedom for debate
today, und losK crushing of Individuality in the Canadian
Parliament than in the United Slates Congress. Canada
lays no claim to being it republic, but It is rapidly coming
ion position where tho voice of its people ls moro regarded
than in the so-called republic of tlie United Statos.

Vet liCtcaiCU. parliamentary maneuvering the
Kettle River railway bill for Mr. Corbin's proposed Boundary Creek road, has been retired at least temporarily by the
_1oub6 of Commons. It is probable, however, that tho bill
will be reintroduced. Other accounts btato that tho
French-Canadian members from Quebec, opposed the bill
al'Sjjst unanimously, and that the C. P. P.. ran a special
train to accomodate those who voted against the bill.

Here is what Peter Cooper, who died worth millions,
said of a newspaper: "In all the towns where a newspaper
"is published, every man should advertise in it, if nothing
"more than a card stating his name and busiuess. It does
"not only pay the advertiser, but it lets'people atadistauce
"know that the town in which you reside is a prosperous
"community of business mon. As the seeds are sown so the
"seed recompenses. Never pull down your sign while you

To fill a short space in the editorial column, just before
going to press last Friday, a paragraph was hastily prepared criticising tlrB Spokane Spokesman-Review for assuming that tho alleged $9,01)0,000 output of the Coeur
p'Alenes for IHilV, exceeded that of British Columbia for
tlie same po'dod. In attempting a comparison, Professor
Carlyle's table for the mineral production up to 1897, was
Inadvertently consulted instead of tho table for 1897. In
tho meantime, the eagle eye and massive brain that oceas
ionally presides over the Kootenaian, and defends trans
boundary affairs with so much vigor, saw tho item, pounced
upon it, and wrote a criticism which mado tho best news
item that that issue of his paper contained. Thanks, Mt'.
Kootenaian, for calling our attention lo the error. We will
try to do as much for you some time.
CORRESPONDENCE.
UNITED STATES VS. CANADIAN EXCLUSION.
A Correspondent who Administers a Genteel "Koast" to
thc Spokane .Spokesman-Review.
Editor B. C. News:���Permit mc to reply through your
columns to an editorial in last Tuesday's Spokane Spokesman-Review. "Has the Dominion Govornment entered
upon a policy of non-intercourse with the Unitod States?"
asks that pa ict anetit tho failure of Mr. Corbin to secure a
charter for his proposed Kettle River railroad, i, for one,
do not think so, but 1 do believe that it is about time something was dono to awaken the American peoplo lo a proper
conception of what constitutes equitable international trade
relations, i should liko to onqtiire of tlie Spokesman-Review if it is not a fact that ever since 18G4, whon tlie Reciprocity Treaty between Canada and the United State was
terminated by tlio latter, if it has not been the policy of
the United StatiBS to curtail all trade relations with Canada
as much as possible, except where tho benefits redounded
largely to tho business Interests of the former country?
Who, more than our smooth-tongued friends to Hie south
of us, havo played exclusionist? You have closed your ports
to our trade, your lands to our farmers, your minerals to
our miners, aud, in more extreme cases In the eastern
states,,your industrial lists to our workmen. And now, because an American road seeking to enter Canada is refused
a charter, you play the "baby-act"; you, a nation of "Infant industries" grown to trusts and monopolies���a nation
where lh'; rich aro growing richor and tho poor poorer, to
use an American homily. You oven nft'eet surprise that
Canada should pt*i some to refuse your moneyed mon privileges f 1 om whj.cn they expect to amass great fortunes at the
expense of Hm Canadian people.
The failure of Mr. Corbin to secure his charter is due
1,0 thu actioii of American railroads and American cities.
Did not your ti atiwontinental lines lower their differentials
contrary to agreement with our transcontinental line? Did
not your cltioK belittle our trade abilities that they might
control tho Klondike trado���a section of our own domain?
I believe, Mr. Editor, that I voice tho sentiment of
nlnn'tenths of our people when I say, we do want equitable
bualhOBs rotations with thc states, but will tolerate none
other. We want to ��ec nvonuos of trado between the two
countries and nball net fairly and honorably to bring it
abuUt, but wi. also Wish to servo notice that one-sided trado
reluUtius will, bo tolerated no longer. And it is hopod that
Hm Corbin cliu ���tor failure will sot the American poople to
thinking, Ar.HFsiiT Letts.

A social gathering of the Masons took
place at the Kalama hotel last Wednesday night. The banquet was held for the
purpose of getting members of the fraternity together, and get better acquainted. T'nfortunately very few responded
to tlie call. The spread, which was gotten up by Mrs. Middleton, was complete
in every detail, and reflects great credit
on her as a cateress. Mr. Charles
Wright presided: Tlie affair broke up
at li o'clock, all having spent a very enjoyable evening.
A committee now has arrangements
in hand for the celebration of the 24th
of May, tho Queen's birthday. An ox-
tensive program of athletic and ac-
quatic sports has been gotten up. A
dancing pavilion will be erected
in the grove south of town, where
those that don't care to tako part In
the spurts, can swing their partners to
their heart's content. Arrangements
aro boing mado with the steamboat
lines to run an excursion on that day
from Nelson and Kaslo and way points.
This will give the people of the up-
lako towns an opportunity to get out
and see tho liveliest little town io Kootenay, and the 'construction of the
great Crow's Nest Pass railway. The
people of Kaslo and Nelson should
avail themselves of this opportunity.
You can all come, we can soat you.

The Miner learns on excellent authority that the O. P. R. has decided
to erect a large lead smelter at Trail.
At this writing it is impossible to say
just when construction work on tbo
plant will be commenced, but there is
evory reason to believe that no great
period will elapse before ground will
be broken for the foundation and that
the furnaces will bo ready for operation
before the close of the present year.
This lead stack will be erected on
Smelter hill and adjoining tho works
recently purchased by tbeC' P. H. from
British Columbia Smelting & Refining
company. The smelter will have a daily capacity of 150 tons, at least. The
galena ores of the Slocan and Ainsworth division will be worked in this
smelter with pyrrhotlte ores of this

As a rule the scent of flowers does not
exist iu lliem as iu a store, or gland,
lint rather ns a breath, au exhalation.
While the flower lives It breathes out
ils sweetness, but when It dies the fragrance usually ceases to exist. The
method ot stealing from the flower Its
fragrance while it is still living is no
new thing, and it is not known when It
was discovered thut butter, animal fat
or oil would absorb the odor given off
by living flowers placed near them, and
would themselves become fragrant.

A Flouting Home.
Practically the captain and his wife
make their home lu the cabin of the
bark; and u comfortable home, too, says
New York Sun. l'|Kiu the walls of the
main room Of this cabin, which Is a
room of spacious dimensions, there are
two pictures of the bark Itself. Theso
nre distinctly nautical; but, aside from
them, tbe furnishing of the room Is
such as might be seeu In any room devoted to like purposes ashore. In an
alcove on one side Is a piano; upon the
other side Is a sofa. In the center of
the room Is a table, upon which there
are books and sewing, and here ln port,
where the ship stands on an even keel,
a vase of flowers. The room ls lighted
at night by a lamp like a piano lamp,
with a broad, spreading shade, but
���which, Instead of being upheld by a
standard with feet resting on the floor,
Is here suspended from the deck beams
running across under the skylight overhead. There are here deep upholstered
armchairs and other easy chairs, and
there are rugs on the floor. It ls a
homelike and attractive room.
Forward of this room Is the forward
cabin, which ls also the ship's dining
room. Tbe mlzsenmnst comes down
through that end of tbe fixed table, giving to this cabin a decidedly marine
touch. Opening off the main cabin there
are a number of rooms. Including the
Captain's room, which Is of ample size.
There Is here also a room for tlie captain's  daughter,   who  sometimes  sails
with lit in. As Is customary on American deep-water ships, tliere are two or
three staterooms for passengers, who
ure carried wheu they ofTer. On her
last voyage to Africa this vessel carried
three passengers.
The captain sailed for many years;
he is acquainted lu ports nil around the
world, and wherever he goes there Is no
lack of social life for himself and his
wife. They have more invltntious
ashore than they can accept, nnd Ihey
entertain guests aboard the ship, which
ls Indeed their floating home; but that
they do not forget their home ashore
may easily be Imagined from the fact
that the ship's name Is made up in part
of the name of the captain's home town.
CLOTHES WRINGERS.
The   Nine   of   a   Familiar   Article   of
Household Use.
The first American clothes wringer
produced, which wus put ou the market about thirty-five years ngo, wus n
substantial and serviceable machine,
but Its price prevented Its coming at
once Into common use.
After some Improvements the price
was reduced, but it Is only within the
last twelve or fifteen years tlmt the
clothes wringer has come to be the article of common household use that It
now ls.
The price now is nbout one-fourth of
the original price.   The present output
of American clothes wringers is about
750,000 annually.
Clothes wringers are made with rolls
of ten to twenty-four inches In length;
wringers larger thnn thnt are made to
order. Ten, eleven and twelve Inch
nre the sizes commonly operated by
ha ltd, though fourteen, and even sixteen. Inch wringers are some!lines used
in that manner. Larger machines are
operated by other power. American
clothes wringers are sold In many foreign countries; though lu some, owing
to natural or other conditions specially
affecting the use of such appliances,
comparatively few ure sold.
Thus, while many articles of American manufacture nre sold in South
American countries, there are not many
clothes wringers sold there, owing to
Climatic conditions, which are such lu
most of the countries that clothes dry
quickly there and wringers are uot
much needed.
Few American wringers nre sold In
France, where washing is done commonly iu wash houses, and few wringers of any kind are used. In Germany,
Russia nud all the Scandinavian countries, nml in Great Britain, American
wringers 11 nd a market, and they are
sold ulso iu Australia, South Africa nntl
other foreign lands. They cost more
than German or Hritish wringers, lint
they sell In competition with them, us
many other manufactured American
products do, because of llielr superiority of workmanship and better adaptability to use.

Dinner Customs.
We nre so accustomed to indies and
gentlemen going lu pairs to the dining
room that we are astonished to learn
thnt this wns not considered good form
by our grandparents. The custom ls
of comparatively recent origin. Even
now In miiny homes the lady of the
house, true to the old fashion, lends the
way to the table, followed by the other
ladles In single file, the gentlemen
bringing up the rear.
A writer buck lu 17SK) tells us mat his
mother wns greatly shocked, on board
a man-of-war. when the captain asked
her to "tnke his nrm" on the way to
dinner. She spoke afterwards of the
"fellow's Impudence"  lu so doing.
Another writer, In 18H2, speaks of n
hidy who died Iii.1H.0--whose daughter
was born lu 1788���having "the horrors"
when she llrst saw a lndy "hook herself
to the nrm of a gentleman in n ball
room." She remarked with Indignation:
"If my daughter did thut I should
take her home luiinedlnlely."

Two Opinion*.
A well-known novelist delivered a lee.
ture recently lu u New Jersey town.
After the lecture, when the people met.
It wns the proper tlilug for one to ask
the other:
"Were you ot the leclure?" and tho
answer ln every case was: "Oh, yes!
I was there, but I didn't hear a word.
Did you hear the lecturoT"
"Well, no! I was there, but I couldn't
hear, either."
A friend, who met the novelist, asked
blm what kind of audience be bad and
how he liked tbe town.
"It's a fine place," was the reply, "and
I had the most attentive audience that
I have ever spoken to. No one made
a sound, aud I didn't have to raise my
voice above a whisper."
There Is no fixed rule ln life for the
benefit of mankind. Samson got Into
trouble because he had bis hair cut,
and Absalom got Into trouble because
he didn't.
Did you ever notice how bold you
are la suggesting what another man
should have done trader critical circumstances?
A woman's heart Is a small affair, but
It hus upset tlie biggest men tbat ever
adorned this world.

Professor    Llndeman,    After    Whom
Lake Lindeuian Is Called.
Lake I.lndemnn, often erroneously
spelled I.inderinnun, murks one of the
stages on the overland route to the
Klondike gold fields. It Is there that
the gold hunters stop to build limits
with which to navigate the Yukon.
This lake wns named lu honor of Prof.
K. O. lMndeniuii, s veteran scientist,
mineralogist and explorer who Is now
living, ns he has lived many yenrs past,
ln Denver. l'rof. Llndeman Is 07 years
old. Forty years ngo he traveled extensively In Alaska and British Columbia, visiting many of the localities
which are now swarming with fortune
hunters and whose names have within
the last few months become familiar
to every newspaper reader ln the country.
It wns In 1850 thnt he first saw the
Yukon. He was then n member of a
large exploring purty, ninny of whose
members left their bones In the frozen
desolate wastes. For seventeen months
he traveled about the country, reaching
a point nearly 1,000 miles north of the
lower Yukon navigation. Even nt Unit
early day lt was known thnt there wns
gold In Alaska and a noted Russian scientist had so reported to his Government, but It seems that his rejiort wns
given but little attention. Prof. Llndeman himself found many specimens
and picked up nuggets of gold at the
foot of Kntrln hill, fully six hundred
miles north of Klondike, n spot which
It Is doubtful If any other white mini
ever visited. Subsequently he made
other trips nbout Alaska and knows
the country thoroughly.
The professor advises prospectors to
carry with them enough condensed food
to Inst for a year, and he says that It Is
possible to prepare food In such a way
that fifty pounds will be sufflcleut. He
always prepared his own provisions and
Is willing to give any miner directions
so that lt can Im* done ��t home: Prof.
Llndeman hns also visited the gold
fields of South Africa and Australia.
He ls a native of Pennsylvania, but acquired his education aud his knowledge
of minerals nt European universities.
Seven Wonders of the World.
It may be that our renders have never
seen the following lines, In which are
enumerated the seven wonders of the
world:
"The pyramids first, which in Egypt were
laid;
Next Babylon's gardens for Amytis mnde;
Then  Mnusoliia'   tomb  of  affection  and
guilt;
Fourth, the temple of Dinn, in Epliesus
built;
The Colossus of Rhodes, cast in brass, to
the sun;
Sixth, Jupiter's statue by Tliiilins done:
The Pharos of Egypt, last wonder of old,
Or palace of Cyrus, cemented with gold."
You remember when <;n Bins reached
tPennnflor, a pnriislte'canie lo his room
In the Inn and after due approaches,
hugged hlm nnd called liim the "eighth
wouder of the world." When (ill Bins
replied that he was not aware ills name
and fume hnd spread so far, his affectionate visitor exclaimed;
"We keep n register of nil the celebrated names within twenty leagues,
and hnve no doubt Spain will one da*/
be as proud of you as Oreece wus of
the seveu snges."
Of course Gil Bins, after such a
flattering statement, could do no less
than Invite his visitor Io dine or sup
with hlm. Delicacy after delicacy was
eaten, bottle after bottle disappeared,
and when the expensive dishes hnd all
been consumed nnd the parasite was
gorged to satiety, he rose and suld:
"Signor (ill Bias, don't believe yourself to be the eighth wonder of the
world liecause n hungry niiin would
feast by fluttering your vanity."
Then he walked off, laughing, leaving
.Oil Bins poorer In pocket, with food
���enough, however, for reflection.
ENJOYMENT   OF QUIET LIVES

Tliere Ih Always Peace,
I suppose nobody can be so detached
from mundane troubles as the man whosu
calling it ls to investigate the other earths
of the universe, says Julian Hawthorne in
Collier's Weekly. In the astronomical observatory there Is always peace. In our
churches we offer up prayers for the political welfare of the country, and listen
to sermons advocating or deprecating war.
Sitting at home, amid wife and children.
In the security of our firesides, we read
the newspapers and discuss the chances
of battle and the horrors of famine. But
In the observatory there ls no mention or
thought of these things. The nearest the
astronomer gets to this planet is 240,000
miles ��� the distance that separates the
moon from us. He does not, however, linger there long; lt ls too near; he is like
the old frontiersman who began to gasp
for breath when any one came wilhin live
and twenty miles of him. Our astronomer
is not*_atlBfled with miles; he wants diameters of the solar system; the speed of
light vibrations Is his yardstick. Mars is
the nearest spot where he can sit down a
bit and feel at home. He begins to smile
and open his shoulders at Jupiter or Saturn; he ts striding along at a round pace
by the time he passes Neptune; and then,
with a sigh of relief, he bestraddles the
awful gulf that yawns between us and the
nearest fixed star, and disappears chee.--
fully from view in the mists of the Milky
Way. What is the uso of talking to such
a person about the war ln Cuba? "How
soon do you think it will be settled?" you
Inquire. He replies that it will require so
many billion ages for Alpha Ceniauri to
alter its present position. "But think of
those starving folks ln Matanzas!" you
continue. He refers you to the fact that
a thousand million years hence 'the sun
will have cooled down, and all the inhabitants of this solar family will have frozen
into icicles. "Have you pictured to your-
Bclf the terror of the moment when the

fearful smile, and saying something

Yea, lt ls healthy once in a while to remind ourselves of the relations of thln<js
in this creation, to breathe Inlinite spuce,
to cool our little fevers In Its absolute
zero, to set our watches by the 1'reeesslon
of the Kuulnoxes, and to seek a quiet corner for meditation somewhere behind the
back stars. Hitch one end of your hummock to Sirius, and the other to Arcturus,
and compose yourself for a nap of a few

matters that so concerned you here will

To manufacture a cheap kalsomlne
stuck on the wall with glue, claiming it to
be the "same thing" or "Just as good" as
thc durable Alabastlne, or to buy and sell
such goods on such representations would
seem a cheap trick. Some resort to it. To

A OENERAL SURPRISE.
An old womnn who had sat down to
tako a rest on the steps of a residence
near Nineteenth and Master streets yesterday afternoon, was surprised hy being
shaken by tho policeman on the beat.
"What's thc matter here?" lie asked,
grujy. She gave no answer, and, after
a sharp look at her, lie ran quickly to
the corner and rang up the patrol, which
came dashing up a little later at breakneck speed. The unwilling passenger was
summarily bundled in and the driver
raced to the German hospital and one
of the physicians was hastily summoned.
"VVlnit's the matter?" he asked of the supposed patient. ".Matter!" she said. "Yes,
what nils you?" "Me?" was the reply.
"Well, I'm a little tired, an' I'd be obliged
if you'd let mc sit here till thc gentlemen
get ready to take ine back. I was sittin'
on tho steps waitin' for my daughter to
come out of the store on thc corner when
they drove me off so quick. I wondered
what they were about, but I guess they
know." The physician turned to tlie policemen to make some inquiries, but those
officials Mere looking very ill, indeed, so
nothing  was said.���Philadelphia Record.

Farm Telephones.
Here Is an idea for the hoys tn think

be very convenient In a nolghliorlioo .
where Hie houses were not near each
other, and would bring one of the
luxuries of clly life to tne Inuiiiles, says
American Parmer.
To make a good and serviceable telephone, good from one farm house to
another, only requires enough wire and
two cigar boxes. First, select your
fco.ten and make a hole about a half an
Inch in diameter.In the center of the
bottom of each, and then place one In
each of Mio houses you wish to connect;
then got live pounds of common Iron
stove-pipe wire; make a loop In one end
and put It through the hole in your
cigar box nnd fasten it with a nail; then
draw It tight to the oilier box, supporting It, when necessary, with a stout
cord. You can easily run your line into
the house by boring a hole through the
glass. Support your boxes with Blats
nailed across the window, aud your
telephone Is complete. The writer has

Among the colored diamonds there is
one of a green tint, now in Dresden, and
formerly owned by Augustus the Strong.
Tlie grand duke of Tuscany possessed a
blue one, and the famous Hope diamond
was also blue and remarkably beautiful.
No account of diamonds could omit
mention of the great Braganza ,the Portuguese crown jewel, which is said to
weigh 1880 carats, and is valued hy the

RIVETED LETTERS.
Riveted letters are a decided novelty,
and are the outcome of a desire to have
un absolutely safe envelope, says the
Philadelphia Record. These envelopes,
which can be secured by rivets, are per*
forated in one or more places, and before
closing the letter the stem of the rivet,
���which possesses a Hut head, is pushed
through the small holes from the inside
of the envelope and the Hup then struck
down. Over that stein u small net with a
conical hole is placed. This hole is wider
at Hie top part where the stem protrudes.
All the parts are made of lead or some
other equally soft metal. In order to secure the rivet a head has to he liunimercd
out of the protruding stem. r\,r this
purpose n steel mold or shield is placed
over it and driven home with the aid of
a hammer or with the Bat of the hand.
The stem then fills up the conical hole
in the nut with which it forms nne solid
piece showing the cleur lliipreaalou of the
shield or seal.
Lute ��� transfers  give  the agreement of
sule of the Blue Grouse group of silver-

claims in the group, and they lie on the
south aide of Carbon gulch, on the southwest   side  of  Sunset   mountain,  in   the
J Coeur  d'Alenes.    The  principal devclop-
| ment work has been  done on the Blue
Grouse, and this claim had a fine showing
hist fall, which has been improved since.
j If the sale is consummated there will he
| a chance for all the claim owners in the
Blue Grouse territory to get together anil
build  a wagon  road  from Dobson  sum-
I mit to the Blue Grouse, Manhattan, Amazon and Parrott.    Such a road would be
I about two miles long, hut it would be a
I splendid grade, and afford the best facilities for ore hauling.    It would put the
j mines within eight miles of the railroad
at Walluce, ami teams could easily make
j the round  trip  in a  day.    The  cost of
; the two miles of road would not exceed
j $2500.   It would open all the territory on

re Lend Industry.
Delegate (i. O. Unchatiiin, who loft
last Tuesday foi'(il liwa, went by the
city council and the board of trade, to
lay before the Dominion Parliament
plaii�� foi*fostering tho had Industry,
outlined tho following course to the
Nelson Miner:
"As a solution of the question It will
be urged that the government assist
the lead smelting industry (I) by a substitution of a bonus to be paid for tho
successful operation of a leal lolinery
in Canada, instead of that now paid for
I oad smelting; ,2> by an increase of the
duty upon lead coming into Canada: (3)
iiy the appointment of a commission to
ti'avel and investigate the subject of a
foreign market for lead, nnd the conditions under which said market may bo
made accessible to Canada."
Mr. Buchanan will have the active
co.-operation of a ninnboi' of mine owners who are at present either in Ottawa
or in other parts of eastern Canada.
