One May Carry a Picture of a Friend Upon
His Flesh Perpetually.
This new scientific discovery is
hound to he picturesque and interesting, and must attract universal
attention. A Roumanian chemist
named Dinkeresco has discoverer! a
means of combining the substances
which are used in sensitizing paper
for photographic purposes so that
they can he applied to the human
cuticle without injuring it, and the
skin thus he made a sensitive plate
for the printing of photography.
Dinkeresco's remarkable discovery
ie a combination of photography
and the etching process, aud that to
some extent the image is "bitten"
into the cuticle.
At any rate, the impression is permanent, the image is clear and distinct, and the skin is not made a
negative, but really a sort of sensitized! paper. The impression does
not wear away with the changing of
the tissues and the renewal of the
surface of the skin because the substances or changes which have been
produced by the process of photography are renewed according to
the mollifications produced hy the
"biting" process, just as those of a
tattooed outline are. And whatever
the mechanical means employed,
the results are remarkable. By this
means every human being becomes
a sort of photograph album. The
likeness of his friends, landscape

or with sijnificant events in his
life, portraits of the great men and
heroes whom he admires, aud many
other things may be reproduced

Chief   Health   Officer   Montzambert   Visits
Dr. Montzambert, Dominion
chief health officer at Ottawa, with
his son, arrived in Rossland Saturday night from Dawson and British
coast cities and Seattle, on his inspection tour. The du.ties of his
office require him to make such a
tour periodically throughout the
He at once called on Dr. A. C.
Sinclair, the Dominion quarantine
officer of that district, and for the
first time he was informed to his
astonishment that quarantine had
been raised some time ago at this
point. He called up hy telephone
immediately the Boundary quarantine officers at Grand Forks,Greenwood and Midway, and was told
by them th.it quarantine was still
maintained and that no order had
been received to have it removed.
Quarantine is ordered to be maintained along the coast of British
Columbia and to he continued in
the Boundary country, until Dr.
Montzambert returns to Ottawa to
confer with the department representing the whole matter.
Dr. Montzambert seemed deeply
dxeicised that in coming to Rossland, "the gateway into the interior
of British Columbia,'' as he said,
quarantine regulations had been
varied during his absence in the
North, while it was maintained all
over the province elsewhere. He
found smallpox prevailing in Seatte
and other Washington centres,
though of a mild type.���Rossland
A Most Delightful Outing Home  For Those
Who Desire It.
The new C. P. R. house boat
which is now completed and ready
for occupation has heen visited by
a large number of Nelson people,
all of whom declare it an ideal outing home. The boat is completely
furnished in every respect. The
four state rooms with their four
double and four single bertha are
equipped with every thing one
would desire iu a bedroom at home.
In the dining room is all that a
dining room requires, silverware,
glassware, etc., and the room itself
is sufficiently large enough to accommodate any party that could
travel on the boat. The kitchen,
too, is complete, and in fact, there
is nothing lacking anywhere. All
of the rooms are carpeted and the
hallway is laid with oilcloth. Upstairs you are in the open air, with
an awning to shield you from the
sun and a hammock if you would
lay down and read and rest. No
more delightful place to spend a
week or two, could he imagined,
provided, of course, the boat is
anchored in some one of the thousand beauty spots of Kootenay
lake. Nowhere, perhaps, in the
Dominion of Canada is there a
body of water offering to the man
of the reei and the fly or he of the
gun such inducements as are offered anywhere on Kootenay lake
and nowhere are there more delightfully secluded places than can
be found here. And it is to give
the visitors the opportunity of seeing all this, under most pleasant
conditions, that the C. P. R. bas
caused to be built this house boat.
It is to be rented to parties and at
a figure which makes it within the
reach of everyone who can afford
an outing. The boat itself will
rent at $5 per day, with a minimum
charge of $20. It will be towed to
any point that can he reached from
Nelson at the regular towage
charge of 50c a mile, with  a  mini
mum towage charge of $5. All
that those who rent the boat have
to do is to stork it with eatables and
drinkables. Nothing else is required by them unless they desire
a servant and this the C. P. R.
officials  will  undertake tn secure
for them.

Galveston and Othei  Towns   on   the   Gulf
Coast Swept Away.
Last Saturday one of the most
destructive storms ever known on
the continent swept the coast of
the Gulf of Mexico, the city of Galveston, Texas, being the greatest
sufferer from it. Thousands of
lives and trillions of dollars worth
of property were lost. The loss of
human lives will, when the horrors
of the catastrophe are fully known,
reach into the thousands���between
three and four thousand. The
property loss ii estimated at between $15,000,000 and $20,000,000.
To get tbe bodies of the dead removed before pestilence set in they
were taken out to sea and thrown
overboard, many of which washed
ashore again. Galveston is located
on an inland sand bar only six or
eight feet above the gulf tide level,
and was swept by raging waters
from both sides.

":J September IB, 1900
The Hon. W. S. Fielding, M. P.I
Minister of Finance, says in effect
that a result of the plebiscite showed 224 per cent electors favouring
"prohibition", 21 j per cent against
and that 56 per cent didn't care a
shebeen anyhow.
But suppose it had been otherwise, suppose a great majority had
been in favor of making people
sober by act of Parliament, would
they have done any good? Not
one hit of it. The New Brunswick
fiasco alone indicates that, and
scoreB of examples elsewhere, public and private all illustrate it.
Besides which, Tom, Dick and
Harry have no more right to dictate
what Smith sha'nt drink, than
Brown, Jones and Robinson have
the right of so working a feeble
minded legislature as to ordain by
act of Parliament that teetotallers
shall not wear trousers, hut just
struggle through life in frocks���like
the other old women.
neglects his family that no one else
may touch an alcoholic beverage
but once you widen your scope of
examination you find you can
prove nothing at all.
Take recent parliamentary statistics in Great Britain. At Coventry with 558 licenced houses per
100,000 population,the prosecutions
for drunkenness were 91 per 100,-
000. At Bontle with only 132
houses per 100,000 the prosecutions
were 2515 per 100,000.
You see if any particular sect or
sex is to begin legislating with regard to intemperance, where is it to
stop? There is just as much intemperate eating as drinking, just
as much intemperate language as
either and all other kinds of excess
to hoot. It all becomes a question
of survival of the fittest. If a man
be such a fool as to handicap himself in the race of life with a
stomach full of whiskey and a head
full of snakes so much the better
for the man who has the decency
and self respect to avoid such impedimenta. There is an old German saying "Gegen Dummheit ka-
empfen Goetter selbst vergebens."
That being admitted what chance
have narrow-minded teetotalers
and cringing legislators?
Just think of it for a moment.
Suppose there had only been one
house at Bootle, a simple rule of
three sum would indicate about
75,000 prosecutions for the offence
of drunkenness, per 100,000 inhabi
Then suppose you closed that
house by act of parliament and
started, as you inevitably would,
a whole lot of inexperienced people
making their own whisky, neither
words nor figures could picture the
result, Not even a reincarnated
Cruikshank could do it. It would
not be mere drunkenness you would
have to deal with then. You
would have poison and madneBsand
bigamy and murder and stomach
ache and divoce and all other
kinds of luxuries thrown in.
pagne at fifteen and eighteen francs
per bottle are sold���to say nothing
of illimitable and strangely incongruous grog au rhum.
And yet 1 do not hesitate one
moment to say that Brussels is a
more sober and better ordered town
than Glasgow or Dublin. Speaking
personally of three somewhat similar sized cities that I know intimately, Melbourne, Manchester and
Brussels, I would lay it down emphatically that the one in which
there iB most tinkering interference
there is most drunkenness; where
the cost of inebriety is lowest there
is least of it; in short, the more un
hampered the method of distribu
tion the lower the resulting degradation and distress.
If 1, being a free man, wanted
whisky, all the legislation hetween
Ottawa river and the River Styx
would not prevent me getting it,
noteven if I had to burglariously
annex if from a teetotaler's private
supply; and there are thousands
of people in Canada who want
whiskey worse than I do. In fact
I like the very best when I take it
at all.
And anyhow on what basis is
legislation to be commenced or continued? The whole subject is
bristling with some of the most
extraordinary and incomprehensible anomalies discoverable. There
is no more logic in the statistics of
drunkenness and its corollaries
than there is in inebriation itself.
No Bane man can argue as the
average teetotaler might, that because BiliouB Beardsly of Boosyville
gets drunk, batters his wife and

Why is it that Manchester with

supervision, rigid 11 p. m. closing
and drinks costing from 3 to 18
cents each, constantly exhibits infinitely more drunkenness than say
Brussels, a somewhat similar . sized
town, where a beer licence costs only
10 dollars, a full license $40, houses
remain open as long as customers
come, supervision is lax and some
drinks cost less than half a cent a
In Belgium, practically a conscription country, there are more

In fact, there is no logic about
the whole evil business, except in
the dividends therefrom. I remember an old picture representing a
thirsty toper accosting a surfeited
brother hanging on to the lamp outside a London tavern : "Do they
sell good liquor in there?" he asked.
"Hie���L-look at me for fourpence-
ha'penny," was the satisfied reply. How far would 4^d���nine
cents���go in this country in honest
drink ? And yet, for just a little
more than that sum, say the price

Someday the teetotallers and pro*
hibitionists who are now posing as
experts on intoxication, yet claiming that they do not know the
smell i?f drink themselves, may
commence to see this. When they
do, when they cease worrying the
sinning and pitiful victim, and
turn their attention to the sinful
causes; when they cease ranting
against all intoxicants, and know
enough to distinguish the vile concoctions that cause the real trouble,
from honest beverages which have a
legitimate-use, then will the general
public see reason in their actions.
When, moreover, they are prepared
to back their newly acquired knowledge by wholesale prosecutions and
harassings of the vendors of the
devil-begotten and hell-distributing
fluid, then will men, and the sons
and wives and daughters of men
rise up and call them blessed.
Prohibition is mere vanity and
vexation of spirit. What is needed
is the placing on the statute books
of laws making it a fifteen year
offence for saloonkeepers to have
on their premises any of the
''knock-out" brands, or failing the
enactment of fresh legislation to
see that existing laws are made
I was born and brought up in a
Lancashire town bordering on
Yorkshire and Cheshire. Consequently I have been for many years
laboring under the impression that
I knew what a ham was. The other
day I parted with $2.20 in order to
acquire a specimen. It was supposed
to be of superfine brand. After
inspection I borrowed a Webster's
dictionary to see what I might be
legitimately entitled to expect.
The description ran thusly :
"The thigh of a beast, especially a
hog, salted and dried." The ham I
acquired, however, must have been
a freak, being composed of the following ingredients : It was assumed
to weigh 12 lbs. Seventeen ounces
consisted of paint and canvas and
greasy brown paper, then came a
coat of whitey-green mould or mildew or verdigris or mushroom
spawn or something similar, after
that a two-inch layer of evil smelling fat, then I struck something
which was, I suppose, the ham proper, about 4 lbs. of it,finally ,of course
course there the bone. That works
nut about 55 cents per pound for
the ham which seems dear in spite
of the quantity of saltpetre in it.
However, I'm not complaining;
indeed, I am very sorry I could not
buy the whole hog or coyote or
whatever the "beast" was, because
I could have resold it to Barnum's
show at a big price. It was evidently a double-header, inasmuch
as, from evidence now in possession
of tuy cats, it can be plainly demonstrated that it had shoulder
joints where most animals keep
their thigh bones.
P. S.���The poor cats have been
sick ever since.

On the subject of roads the Vancouver Province haB the following
sensible say:
If one were asked to name the
chief requirement of British Columbia at the present time���tbe first
necessity of the province, taking
precedence over added capital and
augmented population���the thing
of all things most needed to promote development and prosperity
of the province and the happiness
of its inhabitants, the answer, on
the mainland at all events, would
certainly be "good roads."
The "good" might in many cases
be dispensed with, on the principle
thut any roads would be better
than none, but it is lack of these
avenues of communication in almost every direction that, more
than anything else, is retarding
settlement, investment, and development.
Mineral wealth lies dormant; rich'
farming areas remain an untillied
wilderness; the natural capital of
the country continues an unproductive asset, a talent buried in a j
napkin���and all for the want of
It is with full knowledge of these
present conditions and of the fact
that no better investment offers itself to the consideration of the
government, that the Inland board
of trade has taken the initiative in
a "good roads" campaign and in
connection therewith has called a
convention to be held in Kamloops
on Thursday, the 27th instant, for
the organization of a provincial
Good Roads Association.
The movement will unquestionably have the sympathy, as it
should command the co-operation,
of every true British Columbian.
Similar good roads associations
have proven a power for practical
reform in the older province of
Ontario, and no one will dispute
the opportunities for energetic, useful work that British Columbia
presents for such an organization.
"We Want Good Roads," should
be the rallying cry.
In matters of competition between Canadian or English and U.
S. manufacturers, ihe latter are
generally successful by  reason of
the promptness and alacrity with
! which they till an order. So it is in
the development of almost any enterprise. The Cascade waterpower
development work should be Hearing completion in the interest of
tbe investors, instead of dragging
along over years of lost opportuni
ty. Many enterprises which bud
designed availing themselves of
power promised by the Cascade
Witter Power company having tired
of waiting or despaired of its delivery, have provided themselves with
steam plants, which, if not of a
capacity desired, will be made to
serve their purpose, and will to
this extent cut off the demand for
power that might have been supplied from this point at a profit to
the local power company. On account of this delay, what has taken
place in the past will be repeated
in the future, to the great injury of
the local enterprise.
Trouble is 'looming up iu the distance for Uncle Hum in his netv
territorial acquisitions. The Filo-
pinos refuse to admit they are van-
vuished, and it has been discovered
that the Cubans do not take kindly
to his designs and plans relative to
the passage of their island home
into his stoniache, and are .ecretly
scheming to possess themselves of
the scalp of the old gentleman with
striped pants and newphangled
imperialistic ideas under a plug bat.
The onerous war tax, a prospective
large standing army rendered necessary by expansion [olicies and
the likelihood of interminable international complications are causing the conservative following of
the lanky chap much anxiety, as
many of his former staunch supporters are refusing to "follow the
flag" into foreign territory simply
to gratify his longings for imperialistic aggrandizement.
Mr. W. H. Aldrich, manager of
the Trail smelter works, was in
Cascade Wednesday, having driven
down from Grand Forks in the
forenoon. He made a personal examination of the Cascade Water
Power company's enterprise here,
expressing himBelf as agreeably
surprised at not only its magnitude, but also at the completeness
and thoroughness of the work already accomplished. His visit and
personal inspection of the dam and
flumeway may be the first step in
the direction of an important deal
soon to be consummated here, and
it may have no significance whatever. However, were we so inclined
we could make the incident a basis
for a big boom story that might
please aud encourage the local
reader, but we prefer to await a
more substantial foundation. The
smelter scheme has been fully
"worked" heretofore. Mr. Aldrich
wasoneof a party of railway officials
and machinery men paying the
Boundary a visit, and he rejoined
the company on the east-bound
afternoon train.
The Dominion Health Regulations are peculiar. There is supposed to be a general quarantine
still in operation in this province,
as will be seen by an extract printed in another column relative to
Chief Health Officer Dr. Montzambert, of Ottawa, While health
officers are on duty at Greenwood,
Midway and Grand Forks,Cascade,
a prominent point of entry from
tbe United States, against which
country the quarantine iR mainly
placed, is left unofficered. However, we do not urge the appointment of an oflicer at,this place, for
we consider it unnecessary, and
decidlyso in the towns mentioned.
Establishing quarantine regulations in towns remote from the
boundary line and lea vine the
towns on the line, as at Carson and
Cascade, open to free entry, seem
to be queer methods.

sailed from Nome August 28th, and
her officers report conditions but
little changed. There are about
15,000 people there^ many of them
in destitute circumstances, and as
winter approaches much uneasiness
prevails among the unfortunates,
as they can see no prospects of get-
ing away and nothing ahead but suffering and perhaps death. The terrible conditions in Nome are due to
the reckless boom publications by
newspapers in the interest of transportation companies who make
fortunes out of the deceptions thus
prncticed t n the unwary public.

Lieutenant Lawlor Killed.
Toronto World.
Lieut. Jack Lawlor, owner of the
big Lawlor Building at the northwest corner of King and Yonge
streets, has been killed in South
Africa. He was an officer of the
6th Inniskilling Dragoons, which
belongs to General French's division.
Lieut. Lawlor was born in Toronto 26 years ago, and his father
Dr. Michael Lawlor of Spandia
avenue, died when "Jack" was a
few months old.
The property at King and Yonge
streets was inherited by young
Mr. Lawlor from hiB father who in
turn had inherited it from his
father. It is now one of the most
valuable locations in the city.
Young Mr. Lawlor had many
friends in Toronto. He was educated in Europe, and took to the
army as a profession. He was here
five years ago and left the impression of a big, handsome and genial
chap that it would be a shame to
Mr. J. J. Foy, Q. C, M. L. A��� for
South Toronto, was his guardian
and the custodian of his legal affairs, and it was Mr. Foy who received the cable from Mrs. Lawlor,
the young man's mother, who is at
present in Dublin, Ireland, stating
simply, "Jack's killed."
Mr. Foy said laBt night that Mr.
Xawlor was a keen soldier and was
particularly well liked by the
friend" he made on his last visit
here. He received the major portion of his education at Beaumont
college, in England.
Among the relatives of the dead
soldier in Toronto are Mr. Frank
Lee of W. A. Lee & Co., who is a
cousin, and Mr. 0. E. Caron of
Gould Btreet iB an uncle.
Whoa, Ball.
An old man in Georgia, named
Jack Baldwin, says the Atlanta
Journal, having lost his hat in a
dry well, hitched a rope to a stump
and let himself down. A wicked
josher named Neal came along just
then, and quietly detached a bell
from Baldwins old blind horse, approached the well, bell in hand,
and began to ting-a-ling. Jack
thought the old horse was coming,
and said: "Hang the old blind
horse; he's coming this way, sure,
and he ain't got no more sense than
to fall on me���Whoa, Ball���Whoa
Ball!" The sound came closer.
"Great Jerusalem ! the old blind
fool will be right on top of me in a
minute, Whoa Ball; Whoa Ball 1"
Neal kicked a little dirt on Jack's
head, and Jack began to pray. "Oh
Lord, have mercy on whoa, Ball !���

Neal could hold in no longer, and
shouted a laugh which mijjht have
Oeen heard two miles, which was as
far as Jack chased him when he
got out.

Bread's Punishment  Worse  than  Hanging.
The death penalty has been
abolished in Italy, but a fate far
more awful than death awaits the
criminal guilty of offences like that
of Bresci. Joined to his penal servitude is a ten year's term of solitary confinement. A man condemned to this punishment, before
being placed in his cell, iB shut up
in the "secret cell," about six feet
long by four wide, and half lighted.
A few inches above the floor is a
plank half a yard wide and slightly inclined, which serves as a bed.
The food is bread and water, passed
through the little window called the
''spy" by the gaoler, the door always kept rigorously closed. The
prisoner is condemned to absolute
silence; if he breaks the rule he is
subjected to other punishments,
namely, the strait-waistcoat, irons,
and strait-bed. A prisoner who attempts his own life in any way is
put in the strait-waist-coat, and at
night in a sort of sack, in which he
cannot move.
When the prisoner has suffered
the punishment of the "secret cell"
for a longer or shorter time, he is
removed to the cell where he must
remain for 10 years. Its size depends on the construction of the
whole prison. These cells are only
lighted from the corridor, and are
generally about two yards square.
The bed is the usual plank, and
bread and water is the food. In
winter a single blanket is allowed
at night. Silence is still enjoined;
the only concession is the door be-
iug opened a few inches. The food
is given only once in 24 hours. If
the prisoner is sick the doctor can
have him removed to the prison
infirmary, where he is kept in a
separate chamber. Prisoners in solitary confinement can neither read,
write, smoke nor work. They are
condemned to absolute idleness and
absolute silence; they either go
mad or die,
The extra punishment of the
"iron" is terrible. The handcuffs
are joined by chains to similar
rings on the ankles. The prisoner
is seated on a bench the shape of
an ass's back. At night, still in
irons, he can lie on his plank. The
"strait-bed" is a strong wooden case
resembling a coffin without a lid.
At the foot the sufferer's feet are
fastened in a kind of stock, no that
the legs cannot be moved, while the
arms are confined by the strait-
waistcoat. Unless by order of the
governor the prisoner cannot be
moved, and the gaoler has to feed

Black Eye Foi C. P. R.
Toronto Telegram.
By a majority of one or two vot>s
the British Columbia legislature In-
decided to charter the Kettle River
Valley railwiiy despite the opposition of the C. P. R. The chartering of an independent line to Grand
Forks is the first black eye which
the C. P. R. has received at fie
hands of a Canadian legislative
body for many a long day. An
opposition which stood by the people seems to have been real \
the foundation of a successful attack on the C. P. R. monopoly.
The opposition tas recruited by n
sufficient number of government
supporters to pass the charter for a
competing line. When the corporations do not own both government
and opposition, as at Ottawa ami
Toronto, the fight for public rights
is not always a losing battle.
Gold Commissioner Kirkup has
appointed C. A. Sloess of Columbia,
to look after the building of the
bridges, and says that the government is to appoint a man as road
commissioner for the whole of the
Kettle river district, but he does
not know as yet who this man will
be. Whoever he is he will have
charge of the construction of all
roads and trails of this section, including the road to Franklin camp.
Mr. Stoess will have absolute
charge of the erection of both the
bridges across the river at Columbia, and the bridge over the North
Fork at some point near Eagle
City. The matter of selection of
site and everything pertaining to
the bridges in any way will be left
to him. bis only instructions being
to see the work done in the best
possible manner for the money appropriated.���G. F. Gazette.
The annual report of the Geological Survey for 1898 has been issued.
It shows that the grand total of
mineral production of Canada in
1898 amounted to $28,661,010. The
production in the previous year
was $26,661,430. The value of metallic mineral was $21,705,854, and
non-metallic $16,655,156, the balance, $300,000, being the estimated
value of products unspecified and
Last Monday H. H. Forrest, of
Winnipeg, Dominion government
inspector of railways, arrived in
town with Roadmasler Johnson, of
the C. P. R. for the purpose of inspecting the branch from Phoenix
to Eholt. The gentlemen took a
handcar from here to Eholt. Mr.
Forrest also inspected the Dead-
wood spur and the line from Greenwood to Midway. The inspecton
is taken as an indication that the
C. P. R. will shortly begin running
a passenger coach into Phoenix
and also to Midway.���Phoenix
