W. railway ; W. II. Aldrldge, manager
Trail smelter, and W. P. Tyc, chief engineer, of Trail, visited Rosslaud yesterday.
Mr. Sliau^bties'y is on his annual trip
of inspection, lie expressed himself as
well pleased with what he had seen so
far and regards the future of the west very
optimistically. Mr. Shaughnessy dwelt
ou the satisfactory progress that is noticeable throughout the Kooteiiays since his
last visit. He is also pleased with the
work that has been done towards improving the passenger and traffic service
of his company.
In the few minutes that Mr. Shaughnessy devoted to an interview, he said
that no time would be lost in widening
the Columbia and Western track between
Rossland and Trail to a standard gauge,
Speaking of lhe Robson-Pentictcm railway, Mr. Shaughnessy rt marked that
his company proposes to lose no opportunity to give the Boundary Creek country transportation facilities as soon as it
could have obtained them from other
sources, lie could uot say how much
lime would be consumed In completing
tbe line to Penticlon, but he did not
think train* would be running fiOtu lhat
point to thi: Columbia river Ibis year,
although a considerable portion of it
would be fiuished before next Christmas.
Mr. Shaughuessy slated lhat he had
inspected tlie COUelrUOllOU   work   on  liic
Crows Nest Pass railway, and, judging
fiom what he saw, fully expects the road
will be in operation as far webtas Kootenay lake this year. lie did not want to
say what steps would be taken to continue the line to the Columbia river.
Of the C. P. R.'s interest in the local
smelting industry, Mr. Shaughnessy said
tbe company was in that busiuess solely
to foster and encourage the development
of the country. Por that reason the
works at Trail will treat lhe ores ol" the
district at cosl. He staled that lor years
tbe C. P. R. has worked for n revision of
lhe piesent lead tariff, lie is of the
opinion that llie lead smelting and in mi-
ufacturing Interests ot Canada will be at
a disadvantage so long as the situation is
controlled by tbe American smelters.
He dtd not give bis opinion concerning
wlmt might be expected of parliament
iu this connection.

upon the railway situation lu the Boun*
dnry Creek country and D, C, Corbiu's
desiie to build iuto that region. Mr.
Sliaughneicy said iu cubstance that he
did uot know of any air.ingcm-iit that
bad beeu or would likely be made between the C. P. R. and Mr. Corbin by
which the latter would use the C. P. H.
Iraeks along llie Kettle livernsfaras
.Midway, nor did heknowof the reported
deal by which the C, P. R. would gain
an entrance to Spokane over the Spokane Palls ,*v Northern tracks on a basis
advantageous to the Canadian read. He
remarked lhat to  huve   granted   to Mr.

rtble mistake" on ihe part of parliament

A few weeks agoTm; II krai.d referred

few weeks ngo the boys went out lo
Palmer mountain to labor on a property-
oil which they had already done consld
erable work in the way of sinking, with
very good tesulls, but were drove out by
water. This time Ihey started a crosscut tunnel which will be about ■ioo fret
long when completed, and give them a
depth of more than 150 feet. Tbey have
already got the face of tbe tunnel in 60
feet from lhe starting point; no unfavorable indications have so far been encountered, aud they are now near a lead,
but uot the one for which they started.
The tunnel, when complete.1, will go
a long way toward determining what ihe
future of Palmer mountain will be at
least for a long time. If tbe Hamilton's
work bears out opinions formed on the
basis of what the surface work shows,
Palmer mountain will become oue of the
j-reat copper-lead camps of ibe country.
If it should not show what is anticipated
Palmer mountain will receive a discolored optic. While no one can see into

Bermunda Is fast becoming the Nice

not seek the charms of lids Eden of the
Atlantic coasl Is probably due to the
preseu' Inadequate steamer service nud
the rough seas which are nearly always
experienced In Ihe late fail and early
winter. Once arrived, however, there
Is every Inducement to relaxation and
rest. There are perfect coral roads for

lug bis action upon "the higher law

had shot lo death a neighbor whom he
suspected bad Invaded his family circle. There wns no proof ihat the man
who w-is shot had been guilty of any
serious misconduct. The killing, how
ev< was deliberately planned und
coolly carried into effect. Judge Falconer held " bnt a Jealous husband could
legally make his own feelings the ar
Inter lu any ease affecting his family
honor, and If he fell thnt he had been
betrayed was Jusillied in slaying the
object of his suspicion. It Is a pleasure
to note that this view Is not Indorsed by
the people of Kentucky. The grand
jury In Lexington has returned an Indictment for murder against the prisoner acquitted by .nidge Fulcoucr, and
he nl have io stand trial for bis life.
The former course would offer a premium for assassination uud mnke the
ungovernable passion of a Jealous man

two events that recently occurred Ih
New York within a single week. In one
case n gentleman who of late years has
prospered, paid his share—many thousands of dollars—of the debts of n firm
thnt failed In 1881. In the other, a
father volunteered to pny bis bankrupt
son's proportion of the very large liabilities of nn Insolvent partnership.
These debts had already been regularly "discharged" by process of law. No
man-made obligation rested on the gentleman who paid them. But (he sense
of honor Is n higher nnd a finer thing
than Insolvency statutes, and It Is well
to be reminded that the flcn*-« prcsmirc
of commercial competition does not
necessarily crush it out.

There nre many methods of mnking
money aboard ships. Just now, of curse,
tho quickest and easiest Is that of inking
prizes, for every man Jack of the crew
has n shure In whatever prizes are captured by his ship. Tlie prize money Is also
distributed among tbe crew.* of all war-
whips In sight at lhe time of capture. In
Htich Instances as thai of the capture of
iho Spanish liner Cntnllna by tho Detroit
the sum which each man will receive will
be a tidy little addition to ihe credit side
of Ids account on the purser's books, as
the steamer and onrgo were worth nearly
$500,000, and tho Deiroll made the capture
single banded.
Hut. leaving prise money nut of the
question, I he Industrious Jack Tar enn ndd
tu his wages In many ways. The mess
took who prepares all lhe dishes from lhe
commuted rations, although he may reel Ive only $20or$28 a month from the government, makes enough extra to more
than double his pay. Many of these men
develop Into surprisingly good cooks and
us such ar<- eagerly sought afler by the
"caterers" of mosses. They enn easily buvo
tlireo-fourtha of their salary and lu hundreds of cases are paid off al   111 id of
throo years with more than $1000, a showing which Is not Often made by men of
their standing in civil life.
The unity uniform in which Jack appears 011 shore Is never from Ihe stock of
Hu- paymaster on bonrd ship, Ready made
uniforms are served out to those who de-
Hire ihein, but they nre rather in fitting
affairs,and afler a man has passed the recruit stage and begins lo "draw his pay"
he Invariably lias his clothes made by ono
of Ibe Innumerable tailors on bis vessel.
On almost every vessel there ale from
six to a dozen men wlin In leisure moments ply their trades, and It Is a well-
known fuet that  mil even Ibe best tailors
ashore can give to a bluejacket suit that

these ni> n havo been known to leave a
Vessel al   tlie end of il  three years' cruise
wiih from $1(100 to $1800 clear money.
Another lucrative business   which   is
sometimes, but not always, addid to thai
of the tailor Is eapmuklng. As In lhe case
nf lhe clothing served out by the government, ihe ready made caps nre bill poor
affairs imbed in the eyes of lhe woll-
trimmed sailor,  and  nearly all  llie caps,
especially thoso Intended to bo worn   on
shore leave, are made by lhe makers of
Clips on hoard.
Tho Croesus of the crew, however, Is
the ship's barber. This was al om- time u
regular rating In the service, but was
abolished, and now the office Is usually
held by .t l-nulsmiin. The holder of this
Miiunhic privilege is excused from nearly
all duly and is allowed some littlo unused

In a crew of Mi men he Is sure tn have
a couple of hundred customers. His rates
nre ll cents per month for lwo shaves n

is also about $2 per month reeelved from

added lo his official salary of $1(1.

| The Liberty Bell of Cuba. |
<$ IH    W.   V,   ll.VKOl'K.
Key West, May 10.—When the preside, \
of the I'nlted Slates signed the bill passed by the senate and bouse making Cuba
flee, the whole United States rejoiced In
the liberty of the struggling Island.
llut tlie objeel of ull tills rejoicing-the
Island itself—lay dreaming In tbe south,
utterly Ignorant of the ureal doings that
bad come to pass lu tho land of liberty.
Cuba lias now Just found out that It Is

Gomes had heard it boforo through en-
ban sides from Havana, but even 1 lion llie
people were in ignorance, The people of
Cuba nre thoso who dwell In the cities and
lowns and   III   the  seaports.    There Is n
large population of intelligent, refined,
wetl-educatod peoplo, and thoso wore left
in suspense of tho fact thut the island wns

On the march the "iravel ration" will

This ration conslts of 100 pounds of

On the Couth day euch man will receive
a pound of canned totnntoes.
Whenever circumstances permit—that Is.
when not engaged in notual war—pepper,
salt and candles will be supplied in addition to the above,
Owing to the miserable roads of Cuba,
the transportation of the wounded will
present a serious problem,
Ambulances or any kind of wheeled vehicles can not be much used, so It will be
necessary to carry wounded men on mule
back or on hand lit tiers.
Portable Ice machines will be carried by
lhe medical staff, as lee is often an indls-
pensublo requisite for sick und wounded
By the use of this small nnd light apparatus, operated by ammonia, sufficient Ice
can be made In any cllmnte to provide for
the sick and for several surgical operations.
Great care will be exercised with respect
to the wnler used by our troops. Besides
boiling it, all drinking water will be tillered through u germ-proof filter which
has been adopted by tho war department.
A sufficient number of these (liters will
be carried by lhe commissaries to provide
abundance of pure water for the men,
whether In camp or one the march.
With all these precautions taken for the
physical comfort and safely of the troops
It Is believed by the military authorities
that the climate ot Cuba will possess no

Tiie William Ponn statue Is a cheap Imago compared wilh tlie value of that
glorious old bell and no millions of money
could tempt the Philadelphia fathers to
part with the liberty bell more than a few-
days at a time.
If the city government wanted to rent

lhat lhe entire city taxes could be disposed of without further aid. And the
old bell could travel nioiind the country,

In the April St. N'lcholus Mr. Prank It.
Stockton continues his series of narrative
sketches of "The lluccnneers of Our
Const." Mr. Stockton thus describes tho
capture of the Cuban city, Port au Prince,
by Morgan and bis buccntieers:
When the fleet arrived nt the nearest
harbor Morgan landed his men and
mnrched toTVrifoTte"lowr.; -Bttt 1.C 2!i ,'£\
succeed in muklng a secret attack, ns ho
bad hoped. A Spanish prisoner had let
himself drop overboard, and swimming
ashore, had warned the governor of the
nttacit. Thus prepared, this able commander man-bed a body of soldiers along
the road by which the pirates must come,
nud  when  he found  a suitable spot    ho
built a formidable barricade.  Behind mis
his soldiers were posted with their muskets nnd their ennnon.
Hut when Morgan camo within sight of
tills barricade, he considered that It would
tie enttrely unnecessary to attempt to disturb this admirable defense, so he marched his men Into lhe woods, led them entirely around tbe barricade, and eame out
upon a wide plain before (lie town.
Here ho fuund that ho wuiild hnvo to
light his wny Into the olty, and probably
much to hh surprise bis men were presently chnreed by n body of cavalry.
The pirates routed the horsemen, nml,
aftor a light of about four hours, took
possession of the town. Hero they cup-
lured n grenl many prisoners, whom they
shut up In tlm churches, and then sent
detachments out Into the country in look
for these who had run away.   Then those
utteriy debased ami cruel men took their
usual course after capt urine n town; thoy
pillaged, feasted, ami routed,  Bvon whon
the poor elttr.cns seemed In have given up
everything they owned, they wero told
that If they did not pay two heavy ransoms tln-y would be carried nway Inlo
slavery, and that their town would bn
Por two weeks the pirates waited fur
Ihe unfortunate people to go out Inlo the
country nnd llnd somo of their fellow-
cltlsens who had escaped with a portion
of their treasure. In those days peoplo
did not keep their wealth In banks as
Ihey do now, but every man wns the custodian of most of his possessions, nnd
when they fled from lhe visitation of an
enemy they took with them everything
of vnlue that they could carry. Itefore
the cillzens returned Morgan made a discovery; a negro was taken who was ear-
lying letters from the governor of San-
lingo, a neighboring city, to some of tbe
citizens of Port-nu-rrlnco, telling them
not to be In too great a hurry to pay the
rnnsom, because he was coming with a
strong force to their assistance. When
Morgan rend those letters he changed his
m!nd and thought It would be a wise
thing not to stay In tnat region any longer
than could be helped. So he decided not
to wait for the unfortunate citizens to
collect the heavy ransom ho demanded,
but told them that If they would furnish
him with COO head of cattle and also supply salt nnd help prepnre the moat for
shipment, he would make no further demands upon them. This, of course, the
citizens were glad enough to do, and tha
buccaneers sailed away.
A comical ami yet exasperating example of the doings of receivers Is afforded

Riveted letters are a decided novelty,
and nre the outcome of a desire to have
an absolutely safe envelope, says the
Philadelphia Record. These envelopes,
which can lie secured hy rivets, are perforated in one or mere places, and beforo
closing the letter the stem of the rivet,
which possesses a tint head, is pushed
through the small holes from the inside
of the envelope and the (lap then struck
down. Over thnt stem a small net with a
conical hole is placed. This hole is wider
at the top part where the stem protrudes.
All the parts arc made of lead or some
other equally soft metal. In order to secure the rivet a head has to be hammered
out of the protruding Btem. For this
purpose a steel mold or shield is placed
over it and drive'i homo with the aid of
a hummer or with the flat of the hand.
Tho stem then tills up the conical hole
in the nut wilh which it forms one solid
piece showing the clear impression of the

queer blunder recently appeared In u
New York Journal's elaborate article ou
In this article the following paragraph occurs:
"Tlie account of the locomotive striking a car and cutting her Into 'calves' Is
perfectly understandable."
No doubt this would have been "un-
derstandable" if the word "car" had
been printed "cow," ns it was written,
nnd ns it stands in lhe traditional Joke
which forms the basts of the story.
With some of Ids oilier stories the author of tho article had better success.
He tells of the author of a classic lto-
tnan drama who. by the undeslred aid
of tbe printer, made his hero exclaim,
"Bring me my logs'." Instead of "Bring]
me my toga!"
He relates Ibat one of Mr. Black's

"Impossible!" said the proofreader;
"yon can't play cricket in n fireplace,"

The grand duke of Tuscany possessed a

No account of diamonds could omit

The Portuguese government refuses to allow the stone to be examined.
The crown diamonds of the Brazilian
empire were valued ut more than $18,-

set in tlie handle of the cane of John VII.
Still more remarkable, tlie doublet of

Many lovers nought to will ie-f. and
many were disappointed when rumor un-
nounced her engagement t" young Prank
To be sure. Frank was handsome ;is u
prince iind brilliant as to wit and talents;
waa poor,  hadn't  even "expectations."   j
Early orphaned of iwtii tii-* parents, he
w..s edui ated for the law by a rich uncle, j
who mad.- it understood thai said educa- j
tion was all he mean) lo give Prank.
His presumptive heir was anothei lieph-1

Well, these considerations had their
weigh! with Mis- Vernet. and Bhe had
hesitated before accepting the young law-1

only Hh-- stipulated thai it should i"> no

Of ■-•• Frank must needs go away to
i.-olt his fortune, lb- went to Europo.
Thi ro was i lender parting between ii"
lovers, in whti ii Carolyn was tearful and
despondent, Frank brave nnd hopeful
"Don'l ihlnk of my absence, dearost,"
he urged Ho.■mil. "Think of Iho lime
when 1 shall roturn with a fortune lo of*
■'li.-iurii when vou will. Frank," sobbed
Carolyn, "you shall find me irue, I win
wuii  for vou faithfully, dear  Frank."
Frank iteade wenl lo Europe and for a
month Carolyn was Inconsolable.
However, this did nol last long, and at
tin; end of a moiil'i rai-.il.vn had SO far re-
covered from her grlel as io acccpl an invitation to Mrs. I.e Smith's solroe.
At that soiree she met Albert Reade. I
that fortunate eousln of Frank's.
-Mr. Readi was a rather good looking
youbg mnn. She saw at onco lhat ho was ■
.I. siined to become her adorer. Besides,
lie was Frank's cousin, reason enough
why she should like him.
Still she did noi speak to bim of Frank;
neither did Mr, Reade allude to his cousin,
but Albert was Ignornnl Of Miss Vomel'H
engagement to Frank. He began from
their first moating lo devote himself to
her, and .Miss Vernet, not being blind,
especially to tjuch attentions, did not mistake it, yet she did noi discourage him.
And when occasionally she heard some
common! from "society" not (latterlnfl to
her constancy sin- said indignantly!
"Of course she musl go about Willi
some one. and who could be a more proper
escort than [''rank's eousln?"
Ro she continued  to "go about"  with
Albert Reade.    Of course you see the   HC-
nuol. Corolyn loved Frank. Under the
fascination of Ids presence she had yielded her selfishness, hut now that ho was
gone worldllness hud resumed Um sway,
and ambition began to BUggost that Allan was a better match than Frank.
"Society," that astute nnd   considerate
body, had long foreseen tbe event and was
not in the least surprised when Miss Ver-
net d'uthorized the Information that Bhe
was soon to marry Albert Rettdo, and no-
el. ty thought It a very sensible proceeding.
And Carolyn married Albert Reade.
They went to live with Undo Jenkins,
win) gave the bride a set of diamonds and
did the handsome thing generally, nnd
somebody was good onough to send io
Frank in Europe a paper containing tho
marriage notice, What a crushing blow-
to all his hopes thnt notice was bo nevor
told any one. lie did nol return homo,
nnd Boclely was left to forget or remember him as It  would.
It chose to remember him, for Carolyn,
riding on a ferryboal abmit two years afler her marriage, hoard a lady and gen-
tlemnn at her side conversing aa follows:
' I suppose Marie told you about her
friend Frank Ileade's good fortune?"
queried the lady.
"No.   What about him?    I understand
"You mean aboul his engagement lo
that MIbb—Vlncont, was It—I suppose.
Yes. he did lake her Inconstancy very
badly. Maria says. They say she was a
great beauty, and men are silly about a
pretty face—begging your pardon, mon
"Granted," laughed lhe gentleman.
"Well, you know, as soon as ho was
safely out of the way she married a rich
man, some relation lo ["rank Iteade, I believe."
"Yes. I have heard all aboul that."
"Well, now comes tho sequel. Frank
went to Swliz.-rland on some wild goose
Cliase, and while there saved the life of It
certain rich, benevolent, childless gentleman, Well, llle benevolent Old gentleman
Insisted on taking his brave young preserver home to England with bim. Then
he adopted him, und now he has capped
the climax by dying and leaving his Immense fortune unconditionally to Frank.
Now. won't thai be a bitter pill to the
faithless beauty'.""
Cflrolyn heard no more, hut she bad
heard enough, and later the story had
plenty of confirmation, it was a bitter
pill to her.   Hut the worst was not yet.
In the course of nature Uncle Jenkins
died and was buried, ami his lawyer came
to read tiie will to tlie heir presumptive.
With serene satisfaction Mr, and Mrs.
Keade listened io the following:
"I give and bequeath to my nephew,
Allien iteade, all tbe property of which 1
ille possessed, amounting—"
Hero the lawyer paused to wipe his
"Amounting to $6000, Invested in"—
That wns all. Uncle Jenkins' apparent
wealth had been all a sham, ami Carolyn
had sold herself for $5000! She had lost
not  only a true, loving heart,  but    what
was of more value—a princely fortune!—

2—Candidate Baillie counts on receiving tbe practically solid vote of b'ort
Steele, about two-thirds of ihe entire enrolment of Southeast Kootenny, which
would elect hini.
Now indulge in a few suppositions:
Suppose No.  t to be an undisputed
fact, which it js, and No. 3 to be likewise
realized—Mr. Itnillie says it is—Candidate Baillie will be elected, as Editor
Baillie says.
Suppose lhat be is elected, of what
possible gcotl enn he be to Southeast
Kootenny, being a very weak member of
a weakened Opposition?
Su: pose that ibe Hon, Col. Baiter Khali
be defeated, and .suppose lhat the C. N.
P, R. Co.'s railway construction policy Is
dictated by Col. Baker, as both Editor
and Candidate Baillie say it is, do the I $]ua,1
ctli/cns of Port .Steele imagine this alleged influence of Col. Biker would, in
repayment foi their inmity, be excited
in their behalf? tfihe Hon. Col. Baker
could keep the main line oul of I'oit
Steele, can be not keep the spur out also?
Suppose thai you defeat the Hon. Col.
Baker, generally recognized as one of
Ihehrghlcst men In public life in the
province, and elect one who has no
known qunlltj lining htm to fill any re-
sponsible public poiilioi*, us often stated
by honest oppon tits of Col. baker, simply on the basis ol townsltecompeti ion,
who, do you Hip; or, would still be lec-
pgnUed by the Government in matters
niTecling its policy in Southeast Kootenay, the lion. Col. Baker, or Mr. Unillie?
Suppose Fort Steele succeeds hi defeating Col. Baker, and suppose, for lilt-
pake of argupient, tint! it .should transpire that ibe Hon Col Baker would have
a seat iii the legislatiue anyway; would
Mr. Baker be morally bound to favor
niKthing of advnniagc io Port Steele
while i* had the Invahinhte assistance of
Mr. Baillie ns its legislrftive representative to push it along?
Till; HiUUr.D does not sut po.-e that
that part of lhe pppulalionol Port Steele
who have a reasonable share of perceptive faculties c;itt be tooled long at* to
where their real Interests be by a man port
of Mr. Baillie's calibre. Ii mav be Ihnl i Kort
