The Silver Trouble in India.
London, Feb. 10.���The silver crisis in India is the principal topic in the city. The
fall of the metal lo a fraction below thirty
pence per ounce means that silver is now oO
per cent, under its currency value in the
Colonial Empire. Thus a crown piece requires only half a crown's worth of metal
in its coinage. The India Government is
at its wits end to devise a way of meet
ing the crisis. The Anglo Indian banks
decide the development of immediate future.
The Statist Bays, India importing houses
are in difficulties. The fall of rupee paper
compels very large sales. Although for a
generation India has enjoyed immunity from
the panics which gold countries have suffered from time to time, there now come
rumors of a collapse- The India Council
ought, to announce immediately that bills
will not be pressed up->n the market as well
[Copyright, 1894, by Hie United Press.]
London, Feb. 10.���Thei�� are many signs
that the country is on the eve of a grave
constitutional crisis. The question of abolishing the House of Lords has become acute
and it now depends upon the actiou of the
Cabinet meeting to be held oo Tuesday
whether or not the
Continuance of the Upper House
shall be discussed as the first plank of the
National Liberal Federations platform.
Mr Gladstone is unwilling to lead a campaign agaiust the PeerB, yet be may be
forced to it, by a combination of Ministers,
insisting upon the necessity   of   *he   issu

Summary  Modes  of Dealing  with
Lords.
Campbell Bunnerman, Secretary of State
for War, said in a speech last evening at
Newcastle that the question was whether a
free self-governing community, or a body of
irresponsible hereditary peers ought to
prevail. . .
ProfeBsor Bryce, Chancellor of the Duchy
of Lancaster, said to a Liberal meeting in
Liverpool:   "If the House of
Lords Will Force the Conflict,
we must clear away the bar on which so
many vessels, freighted with useful legislation, have been wrecked."
S r Cliitiles Ru-ai-1 , Attorney-General, iu
addressing the Liberals of Wisheach, said:
"The question now is whether the L'irds,
sitting by accideut of birth can be allowed
to mangle an act passed by the chosen
representatives of the people."
These extracts from the speeches of the
most conspicuous Liberals show which way
the wind blows. Instead of Home Rule,
the
Abolition of the House of Lords
is taking first place among the questions of
the day. The Peers themselves, judged
from their unusually industrious attendance
of parliamentary sittings, seem to have the
consciousness that their sit*; i* ion is precarious. On all votes they aStsr turn out 200
strong against the Government. The programme that finds much favor among the
Radicals just now is that the ministers
bluntly refuse to
Accept the Peers Amendments
to either the Parish Councils or Employer's
Liability Bill and introduce a bill to reform
the Upper House by abolishing the system
of hereditary legislators. On the strength
of this action, Radicals say the cabinet
should then appeal to the country. One obstacle to this course is Mr. Glad, tone's invincible attatchment
To the Hereditary Upper House,
another is, the Premier's strong desire to
see the Home Rule Bill kept in the fore
ground of Liberal legislation. Despite his
influence, however, the time is ripening for
the abolition of the Upper House in its present form. If tha wire pullers of the National Liberal Federation have a free hand,
the
Agitation Against the Peers
will become  the   leading   question   of   the
hour.
The House of Commons will resume work
on Monday and the Cabinet will meet on
Tuesday. About February 22nd, the Parliament will be prorogued, but will re-assemble
within a week to hear the Queen's speech aB
to how the Government proposes to settle
with the Lords.
The Hyde Park demonstration

Saturday's Football Match.
The Association football match between
the Nanaimo Rangers and the Victorians
took place yesterday. The match was a
very exciting one from start to finish, and
and though the swamp was covered with a
mantle of snow, yet a large crowd was
present to watch the interesting contest.
The first goal wus scored by Nanaimo, the
ball being seut between the posts by Reilly,
who had it cleverly passed to him by York.
The Victorians next scored, BeggB converting from a pass by Goward, after which two
more goals were scored for Nanaiiro by
Riley, out, of passes from Thompson and
York; an>l another go.1 gained by Victoria
through the goad offices of Beggs from
Peden's pass.
In the second half the game was considerably faster and both sides showed up well,
doing excellent work in passing the ball
Frequently it was on the point of beiug
forced into one goal and then by clever
play got out of danger and in the next two
minutes threatening the opposite posts.
Victoria saved the match in the second half
scoring another goal through Peden. The
result was a draw, both sides scoring three
goals. The play for the Victorias was excellent by Beggs and Peden of the halfbacks, and R. Goward, centre, also goalkeeper Boyd. Of the Nanaimo team Pride,
the goal-keeper and Wilson, Bamforth, For
ester and Duffie'a play was excellent whilst the
forwards played a splendid game. Reilly,
York and A. Thompson especially distinguishing themselves.
LABOR MEETING.
Messrs,    Kitchen,  Brown,   Sword,    and
Local M.P.F.'s Ventilate Their Views.
List night, a mass meeting was held at
Mahrer's Opera House, at the instance of
thu Miners and Mining Laborers' Protective
Association, who had invited sever il Provincial members of Parliament to discuss
the present state of labor and politics in
conjunction.
The meeting was called for 8 o'clock,
when Mr. R. Smith took the chair. The
ohairman explained that th.re *.��ere several
resolutions which mid beeu drafted by the
chairman of the committee, which Mr A.
Wilson would read. The resolutions weie
as follows:
I.���As to Representation: Wheteas the
present system of representation enables the
minority to control the governing power;
and whereas it is only just and proper that
the majority should rule. Be it therefore
resolved, that we consider the only practical
manner in which the majority can rule, is
by proportional representation for the entire
Province, by which each voter can mark his
ballot for the full number of members required for the Provincial Parliament.
II.���As to Land Grants: Whereas, it ia
essential to the happiness and prosperity of
the people that the public domain be distributed as widely as possible among the inhabitants; and whereas, a land monopoly is
not ouly oppressive to the people, but dangerous to our institutions. To prevent this,
the lands should be given in reasonable
quantities and to i**'ti- lull actual occupants.
Therefore be iI res* 1. * .hat we are unalterably opposed to the kh ing away of large
grants of land to either individuals or corporations; and especially so where such
grants are made free from taxation,
111.���As to the case of the Hon. Poolev:
Whereas, au important case is pending between thu Government of British Columbia
and the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway
Company, involving the ownership of minerals on the railway lands on Vancouver
Island] and whereas the Hon. C. E. Pnoley,
a member of the Goverumeut of Biitisli
Oolumbla, has appeared iu court us the advocate of the E mid N. Railway Oompany
againat the rights of the Proviuce, and
whereas the Government has, by its
majority in the House, stifled discussion on
the subjoci; therefore be it resolved, Thai
this meeting condemns the action of the
President of the Council, as tending to open
the door io oorruplion, and to aacrilicc the
interests of the Province to those of a private corporation.
IV.���As bo Chinese Labor: Whereas it is
evident that tSritish Columbia capitalists
encourage Chinese immigration, to the
great detriment of white labor by placing
the latter in an unequal competition; and
whereas, Chinese labor confronts us in every
avenue of industry. In the field, the workshops, the factory and the mine, tho Chinaman stauds as a menace to free labor and
free men. They retard the prosperity of
the Province by the constant drain of every
dollar they make over the bare cost of a
miserable existence. Be it therefore resolved, that we urge upon the proper authorities to enact such legislation aa will nol
only restrict, but entirely prohibit the influx
of Mongolian labor to the Dominion of
Canada.
Mr. T. Keith, M. P. P., was the first
speaker.     In hia opening remarks he said
I that he had invited both the Premier and
| Col. Baker, but they had excused themselves on the ground of business pressure.
They promised, however, to visit Nanaimo
during the recess, if convenient. Mr.
Keith then went on lo deal with the fourth
resolution of the Labor Bill in reference to
Chinese labor, which he Baid was the most
important question affecting the white workmen of ihis province.
The speaker drew attention to the gravity
of the labor situation, owing to the competition caused by the Chinese engaging in
nearly all the occupations that were followed hy white men. Mr. Keith believed
that it waB perfectly in the power of this
Government to make things considerably
better both as regards work and as affecting
the Chinese question of labor. He alluded
to the number of votes that had been cast
both for the Government members and for
the Opposition, stating thai a minority in
tlie Province had the power in their hands,
and as long as such was the case no benefit
would he derived in the required direction.
He hoped that all would look upon what
had been done by the Government in power
and not ouly *,u what wus promised. The
Government was now spendirg money lavishly, which had been borrowed, and was
noi making any provi ion for bhe'fttture.
Mr. Forster, M.P.P., in the course of his
remarks, said that the Government had not
paid any attention to the subjects which
had been brought forward by them. He
alluded to the land question, suggesting a
lemedy for the land being taken up by a
few large capitalists and thus giving others
no chance of acquiring good lands. He
spoke on the question of railways and tha
Government's guarantees to the different
proposed roads, also mentioning the Premier's remarks at the recent meeting, and
drew parallel conclusions from the effect of
the policy pursued by the railroads in the
United Slates. He believed that if tho
Province gave money to the railroads it
should also own them. The way the land
had been granted to the railroads seemed to
be after such a plan as to prevent it being
taken up at all. The Premier deliberately
misled the audience and statements made
by him were not correct or gave an incorrect
impression to his hearers.
Mr. S��ord next spoke. Iu the course of
his remarks he explained that when he was
first nominated it was distinctly unders*nod
that he would be indepeudent." He alluded
to tho ireatment of himself and colleagues
hy the Government, which he believed
would lose the support it now had, at the
next general election. On the railway and
land questions and taxation, he spoke sIbo
of the measures he deemed best for arranging the matter He referred to Mr. Davies
remaiks at a recent meeting regarding the
guarantee of debentures for the Canada
Western railway, which the Premier had
said could be repudiated at the general
election if required. The speaker talked at
aome length on redistribution and hoped
that citizens would make a point of having
their names on the voters' list.
Mr. McKe_itf, M_--Pi,-*tate*8 Must he
had'gone in as a straight Oppositionist. He
knew the Government and that no good
could come out of its Nazareth. The
speaker drew attention to the report having
been sent to the Governor General stating,
that the votes polled for the Government
were equal to all those voted for the Opposition and Independents together and
stated that the report was utterly false.
He alluded to the action of the Government
to himself in taking gravel from his road
thus making it impassable for him to
get to his property but that the roads of
Governmeut supporters were well kept. In
the pre-emption law at present a settler
ought to he able to leave his lands to get
money and improvements for it, without
having to apply to the Chief Commissioner
nf Lai d *nid WoiUs for permission to do so.
Mr. McKenzie, in conclusion, hoped that at
tl*e geneiat aleotii n thera would be nothing
hut Opposition members and no In-
de| endenta.
Mr. Kitchen, M.P. P., was glad to see that
from the evidence of the reception of the
previous speakers opinion, that the poison
of the Government had not sunk into their
minds. He stated t here was at present in
the louse one member of lhe Opposition who
had ns many votes polled for him at his
election as ten Government members and
three nf those ministers of the Crown. He
spoke on the land question and his experiences in the early days, also of the little
information at present given as to the best
way of getting at the Government lands and
descriptions of the same, and the nearest
settlements, etc., required by intending settlers. He thought that, locking up or selling
the public lands except to intending settlers
was not advisable. Incidentally he referred
to the Chinese question and the objee'ion to
having them working under ground or on
big contracts to the detrimen t 11 th,- white
population. He believed that the proper
-overnment to deal with this question was
the Dominion Government. He proposed
judging the Government on its past record
and *l by their promises. His reaBon for
u,. lUiiiitg out iu opposition was that he
hud i, en watching lhe Government for years
and came to the conclusion that he could
not support them. On the railroad question
the present Government was going too freely
with their guar.ntees to railcoads, and he
believed they ought to be owned and leaBed
to the best advantage, as the present policy
waa dangerous in the face of a falling revenue, last year's being $30,000 less than was
expected. The speaker sti.ted that the
Government had spen* $135,000 with* ut legislative authority at all. He denied the
imputation of being a paid advocate.
Mr. Brown M.P.P., in Ihe course of Borne
humorous remarks in connection with the
weather, hoped that it would be made a
very cold di*.y for the Government in the
coming ele "ion. He spoke flatteringly of
i lie present Nanaimo members and alluded
to lhe constant misrepresentation of facts
by the Government members and their replies when they were hauled over the coals.
He spoke of the Premier's action in replying to different questions as to money spent.
He was sorry that Mr. Davie waB not preseut, thincs CO dd nol be much worse thau the
present, bul not through the Government's
fault., as they would make it so if possible.
This speaker gave aome statistics regarding
expenses of Parliament buildings aud his
opinion that extravagance waB practiced by
the Government. He concluded by saying
that the people of Westminster and Vancouver were for the Province and not for
appropriation.
The several resolutions were carried by
acclamation. 2
NANAIMO, B. C, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1894.
Palmistry*
In the open letters department of the current number of the Century magazine, there
ia an interesting paper on palmistry. The
writer, J. M. Buckley, has investigated ita
claims by teBting some of the leading professors of the so-called science. He begins
byaaying: .
"As in an age of faith every crude imagination of things unknown, and every corrupting ceremony, steal the name of religion, so in an age of rational investigation
every puerile superstition based upon
imaginary correspondences and subtle relations, masquerades in the character of
acience. The "gypsies'" palmistry has
now forsooth become a science, and is defined by one, in a volume found in many
drawing rooms, as "the science which enables us to define character, paat events and
destiny from the Bhape, the mounds and the
lines of the hands."
Then the writer makes this sweeping conclusion "After many experiments with those
considered most successful, and a study of
the subject in the light of anatomy, physiology, and natural coincidences, I regard
palmistry as without   basis   in   science   or
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU MAKE
���    ���   ���   ��� -D \mJ   X   ���   ���   ���   ���
WHAT YOU SAVE
....THAT.
Gives the Wheel of Fortune tbeLueky Turn
"The student of anatomy, who finds in
the hand more than fifty muBcles and ligaments of great strength; especially one who
diasects it, and, as he does bo, tests each
muscle, and traces the junction of each
ligament; or even one who owns an imitation hand, with wires, springs, and false
���kin, stuffed with cotton at the proper places,
the best substitute for an anatomical examination���will have no difficulty in explaining the existence of every line and
mound.
The writer continues to deduce that "The
aole and sufficient cause of difierent lines in
different persons is the difference in the
shape and size of the hands, elasticity of
skin, strength and use of the muscles, and
external pressure. Therefore hands of different persons are not alike, nor both hands
of the same person."
Mr. Buckley concludes by saying: "As
an amusement for those who find pleasure
in holding each other's hands and talking
airy nothings, or for the usea of writers of
fiction, palmistry haa great possibilities;
hut for anything beyond, respect for it indicates a mind either uninformed or unbalanced.
Spider and Fly.
M. B. Leavitt's new and   brilliant   spectacular production opens a two   night's en.
gagement at Mahrer's Opera House,  February 19th.    The production this year   is   an
entirely new one, and will be   known as the
second   edition.     Many   novelties   secured
from both hemispheres   have   been   added.
The scenery, of which there is two carloads,
ia all brand new and also tbe mechanical and
electric effects.    The costumes,   which   are
aaid to be magnificent, were made by   London's famous costumer, Charles Alias,  some
are an excellent reproduction of the   gorgeous ballet   produced   at   the   Grand Opera
House, Paris, last winter.    The   play itself
has been re-written and up to date, and   all
the music will be new.    The play   contains
everything which tends to pass an enjoyable
evening and   please   the   senses.    A grand
scenic   effect   is   immediately   followed by
aome   new   and   artistic   specialties,   then
oomea   a  aong   which   ia   succeeded   by a
auperb ballet, the whole   interapersed   with
comedy    and     aided      by      magnificent
surroundings,   and   one   thing    following
another so fast   during   the   evening   that
the eye is fairly dazzled.    With such a combination of attractions  it is easy to account
for the tremendous success which the Spider
and   Fly   has   oreated   wherever it haa appeared.    This will not only be the fifth.sea-
aon but alao the laat.    After this   year the
company   will   play   in   London and other
prinoipal   citiea   in   Europe.    Among   the
more prominent members of the numerous
company   are   Bertie   Crawford, the   well-
known descriptive  vocalist and protean artiste.   Kitty Marcellas, principal soprano;
Millie McDonald, contralto; Georgia   Putnam,   who   playa   the part of   Zamiel; the
Putnam    Sisters,   duett is ta   and   dancers;

THE    CRAN BROOK    ESTATE    DEBATE.
The debate on Hon. Mr. Beaven'a motion
in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday,
in which he tried to have the Hon. Col.
Baker censured by the House because he
permitted bis name and official title to appear on a prospectus of a company which he
is promoting, to purchase the Cranbrook estate in Kootenay, which he owns, and which
he wishes to have developed. The Cranbrook estate, which consists of 18,000 acres,
has from causes with whioh we are not con -
cerned, become more or less heavily mortgaged, and in order to eet rid of these
mortgages Col. Baker some time ago decided to dispose of his interest in the estate
to an English company, which he has been
promoting to take hold of it and develop it.
Col. Baker does not ask cash, save a small
sum, some $3,000, to pay the expenses of
floating the enterprise, but will accept payment in shares of the company. In this it
does not appear that there is anything
wrong, nor is it claimed by Mr. Beaven and
his friends that there is. The Cranbrook
property is acknowledged to be a valuable
one, nor is Col. Baker charged even by his
enemies with putting an undue price upon
it. What the leader of the opposition and
his allies of the independent branch of it,
who were the active agents in the whole affair, Mr. Beavan simply acting the not very
creditable part of their tool or agent to discredit and, if possible, ruin Col. Baker, was
that the latter signed the prospectus with
his official title, describing himself aB provincial secretary, minister of mines and minister of education of British Columbia, and
had appended to the prospectus a report of
Mr. A. P. Cummins, stipendary magistrate,
gold commissioner, government agent and
provincial land surveyor, dated from the
government office at Donald and addressed
to Col. Baker at Victoria, in which Mr.
Cummins states that ho would consider $12
an acre all round a fair valuation for the
���Cranbrook estate, exclusive of the townsite
of Cranbrook, on which lie declines at present to place a valuation. Mr. Beaven and
his supporters think that Mr. Cummins be-
ing a public officer, his name or report
should not have appeared in the prospectus
at all. Therefore the leader of the opposition thought that the fact that the official
titles of the minister had been used in connection with the prospectus, and that ubo
had also been made of the name of a public
servant in the report on the lands, called
for the condemnation of the House.
Col. Baker in his reply explained how it
was that the prospectus, which had been
printed for private distribution only, had
got into the hands of the Opposition, and
the use these gentlemen had made of it. It
appears that Mr. Kitchen has a farm pupil
from England, and the young man's father
having in some way go', a copy of the pros-
pectuB, sent it to Mr. Kitchen, wiih a request for advise as to investing in the shares
of the company. Mr. Kitchen advised his
correspondent to have nothing to do with
the scheme, ami then hastened to lay the
prospectus before hia colleagues���hied away
to his master in this sort of business in Vancouver, Mr. Cotton, as Colonel Baker ex-
prefses it. The result was that these gentlemen got up a subscription among themselves���some thirty dollars���to pay the
Victoria Times to publish the prospectus as
an advertisement, without asking Colonel
Baker's permission to do so. This was done
accordingly, Mr. Cotton also improved the
occasion by publishing in his paper what
Colonel Baker has described as a scandalous
letter, headed "A Revelation," to which no
name was attached, having for its object to
defame Colonel Baker and prevent the sale
of his property. It seems, indeed, that if
there is any dirty business going, having
for its object to defame and damage the
Government or any member of it, Mr.
Cotton and his newspaper are sure to be
mixed up in it, and Independent Oppositionists like Messrs. Kitchen and Keith to
be actively aiding and abetting.
The Attorney-General made an able
speech in defence of Colonel Baker. Mr.
Davie showed conclusively that there wns
nothing wrong about Colonel Baker's
scheme, that he had every right to promote
a company in England to purchase his
property if he thought fit, that he proved j
that he was acting honestly in the matter
by not asking oash, save a trifling sum to
pay the expenses of floating the enterprise,
accepting shares in the company in payment
for his property, and that the enterprise so
far from being injurious to the interests of
the Province, would be benficial to
it by intruducing a large amount of
capital, and by interesting British capitalists
in British Columbia property. He also
showed that men of the highest rank in England, and members of the Government, are
often interested in joint stock companies,
and that their names and official titles constantly appear in prospectuses. He gave
several instances of thia, mentioning names
of gentlemen formerly connected with Lord
Salisbury's Government, and of others connected with Mr. Gladstone's. He also mentioned names of Canadian statesmen who
had been concerned in public companies, for
instance, Sir John Macdonald and the Hon.
Alexander McKenzie, whose name and official title appeared in the prospectus of the
North American Life Insurance Company
when he was prime minister of Canada. Mr.
Davie's speech was, in fact, a triumphant
and unanswerable vindication of Colonel
Baker's aotion and position in the affair,
and was not answered at all by the Opposition.
The resolution was lost on a vote of
twenty-one noes to ten yeas. Of course
Messrs. Keith, Forster and McKenzie voted
as uBual with the minority against the Gov.
ernment.
The sub-committee of the Senate on
finance is reported to be hard at work on
the tariff bill. Washington is also said to
be filled with representatives of the various
industries that seek protection, and the
members of the committee are overwhelmed
with applications for hearings.

In the debate on Mr. Beaven's motion
on the Cranbrook estate affair on Thursday
night last, Mr. Keith made himself
ridiculous by comparing Mr. Beaven to
Moses when he came down from the mount,
saying that his face so shone with holy
light when speaking to his motion that the
Attorney-General sitting opposite could not
look upon it. In spite of this visible and
wonderful miracle, Mr. Beaven's motion
was rejected by an overwhelming majority;
and sooth to say, Mr. Beaven to everyone
else than to Mr. Kieth, whose eyes were no
doubt dazed by the "holy light," seemed
heartily ashamed of the whole affair.
The ijetails of the defeat of the column
which was marching on Timbuetoo will not
be pleasant reading to the French. It appears by a telegram received at Paris on
Friday eveneng from St. Louis, Senegal,
that Colonel Bonnair and eleven other officers, witn 250 privates were massaored by
the Tuaregs, the desert tribe which attacked the French troops. The latter were
taken by surprise. It is announced that the
French Government intends to hold Timbuetoo, and has ordered reinforcements to
be sent for that purpose. The next we will
hear of it no doubt will be that the Tuaregs
have been defeated with great slaughter and
dispersed. It appears that Timbuetoo is
now held by a small force of French, who
are awaiting reinforcements. The Tuaregs
surround the town.
A return, presented to the Legislative
Assembly on Thursday evening, shows the
total cost of the new parliament buildings
to be $630,219.7.*). The contracts let include ever\ thing requisite for complete construction uud fi Uuks of the building. The
cost of laying out the grounds has not yet
beeu considered, and is not incluied in the
sum mentioned above. Hon. Mr. Vernon's
description of the building, published in his
annual Report of Lands and Works, which
is just to hand, shows that it will be very
handsome and substantial, a credit to the
province, and an ornament to the capital.
Its cost too is moderate, and the annual
interest charged upon it will not much exceed
the sum which had every yea. to be spent in
patching and repairing the old buildings, so
as to keep them standing and render them
in aome sort habitable.

It is reported that the government of
Brazil decided some days ago that martial
law in that country would cease on the 8th
of February and that a presidential diction
in accordance with the constitution would
be held on thu 1st of March. Dr. Piudeute
de Morales, president, of the Senate, is the
only candidate named for the presidency.
The news is almost too good to be true, but
it iB to be hoped that it will prove true
nevertheless, and that an end will at once
be put both In the farcical civil war which
iB ruining Brazil, and to Peixoto's cruel
rule. It will be strange if Peixoto steps
down and out with the meekness which, if
the report referred above is true,
seems to be expected of hirn. The
end of the war and of Peixoto's
rule would doubtlesB be hailed with joy in
Rio de Janeiro, where, according to a cable
despatch from Monte Video to the New
York Herald on Monday last, the prisons
were literally crowded with men who had
fallen under the suspicion of Peixoto's Government. Three thousand of these were
stated to tc in confinement, including many
Portuguese merchants and other foreigners,
and that they were crowded like sheep into
filthy prisons. Doubtless all these unfortunate people will be released from arrest
on Peixoto's retirement and the conclusion
of the war, if it is to be concluded. It is
further stated in tbe cable despatch to
the Herald, that Peixoto'a secret police
infest the hotels and cafes, and
that with ears and eyes open they ferret,
out and arrest suspects. This is a veritable
tyranny, established nnder republican
forms, and the sooner an end is put to it in
some way, the better it will be.

Ore Coming out Faster Tban Ever���Tbe
Examiner Changes Hands���Big Strike
in the Slooan Star.
Kaslo, B. C, Feb. 10.���[Special]���Orders
are coming in Kaslo now faster than ever,
the average being 40 tons per day. Since
December 26th, nearly 4,000,000 pounds of
ores have been shipped over the Nelson and
Fort Sheppard Railway, contributed by
twelve different mines iu this section.
A miner by name of R. D. Conway died
of pneumonia at the Washington mining
camp on Thursday eveniug last.
The danger of the West arm outlet of
Kootenai lake freezing seems to be over for
this season. Navigation between Nelson
and Kaslo has been uninterrupted all
winter.
Another big strike was made in the east
tunnel on the Noonday claim owned by
George J. Akins k Co., of the Duluth syndicate. They went into a large ore shoot of
over three feet in width of solid clean steel
galena, which will assay 150 ounces in silver
and 75 per oent. lead. This new strike
mak i's this mine, with what I hey have in
the upper and western tunnels, one of the
largest properties in the camp, rivalling the
famous Slocan Star.
The steamer State of Idaho was yesterday
completely raised out of the water. The
steam pumps were got to work and in a few
hours she was emptied. A thorough examination of her hull was made and not a trace
of injury was found except on her forefoot,
where she struck the rocks. She is now
being overhauled and cleaned and it is Baid
she will be able to go into service in thiee
weeks.
It iB stated here that the Kaslo Examiner
has changed hands and Captain D. C. Mc-
Morris, the genial and popular purser of the
steamer Nelson, is the purchaser. The
oaptain has had large and extensive experience in the east in the newspaper business.
The change has been greatly desired as it
has been felt for some time past that Kaalo
ought to have a newspaper   worthy   of   its
firogressive spirit and in keeping with the
arge interests of the Slocan district. The
paper will be greatly improved in appearance and in its matter. It will seek to be
the true exponent of the large interests of
this camp. Captain McMorris and family
will be a great acquisition to Kaslo.
Look! Seoond Hand Goods.

pets, mgs, bedroom suits, matraBses, pillows, bedding, laco curtains, portiere,

From the Mining Regions.
New Denver, B. C, Feb. 10.- [Special]
���A contract has been let to Cameron Bros,
to haul 500 tons of ore from the Alpha miue
to the ore house at Silvertown where it will
be stored until the completion of the S. k
K. Railroad to the head of the lake. The
Alpha, which was thought to be a great
proposition at the time of it" purchase, is
now looking better than ever, for 60 feet of
the ledge have been stripped and shows an
average width of 11 feet of clean ore. The
Rico, which was shut down on account of
lack of supplies, has started up again with
a force of 15 men. The Slocan Star has reduced the daily output of ore to three tons
on account of lack of storage room. The
Noble Five has 23 miners at work with a
daily output of 13 tons. The Bteamer is
making a daily trip to S.lverton and Head
of Lake. Everything very dull in New
Denver.   A great number of idle men.
The San Francisoo Ch rouicle has  the  fol-
I lowing in  its  advertisment  columns:    Ho

Tho Religious Warriors.
The local corps of the Salvation Army
was considerably enforced last uight by
some notable arrivals. Among them was
Brigadier Margette from Winnipeg, who
will be the leading speaker at the opening
ceremonies at the new barracks ou Monday.
He is accompanied by Ensign Hilts from
Victoria, and Captain Rennie of Viotoria,
both of the latter being lady officers. On
Monday the army will be further strengthened by Captain Massocar and Lieutenant
(iooden from New Westminster, Captain
Turner and Captain Patten from Victoria,
and Lieutenant Thomas from Vancouver.
Monday will be quite a red letter day in
the history of tbe Salvation Army in Nauaimo. Extensive preparations have been
mi*'le to ensure a success for the opening.
Continual services of a varying kind will be
held all day.	
Entering the New Temple.
The very handsome now Presbyterian
Churoh will be opened to-day with ceremonial services of an ornate description.
Tlie building is a great, credit to Nanaimo,
and should prove an exemplary incentive to
the other places of worship. On Monday
evening there will be a grand concert proceeded by a sumptuous spread on which the
ladies of the congregation are concentrating
their culinary skill. The artists from the
Elite Studio will take flash-light piotures
during the evening.

Another Canine Combat. _.
A most thrilling and interesting dog fight
occurred yesterday on Commercial Street,
attracting attention from everybody in the
neighborhood, causing one expressman in
his eagerness to see the fight and give the
combatants a fair show tu nearly back hie
wagon through a plate glass window. The
crowd around followed the battle with all
the ardor of their sporting instincts, and the desired result was obtained.
The conqueror was looked upon by the
admiring bystanders with awe, having
added fresh laurels to hia already large
crown of violeut and successful encounters.
What became of the conquered dog is not
known, and whether either or both have
tags is not a certainty, but it is certain the
dogs have each a bad name, which suggests
the end that will probably befal them.

Let There Be Ligbt.
The incandescent electric lightB last night
went through some original and totally unexpected variations to their usual programme of quiet and beneficent effulgence.
At about 8 o'clock last evening the eccentricities started by the lights going out in a
large number of business establishments in
town, whilst the owners were engaged
in the interesting transactions that
usually occur on a pay night.
In Borne of the places referred to, the lights
resumed their usual brilliancy gradually,
being watched with mistrust for the rest of
the evening. Several other places in town
did not get any more light from the electric
source and had to make shift with the ordinary old sland-by���that of the common or
garden candle, the illuminating power of
which was liberally helped out by bleBsings
on the Electric Light Co.   ���

"A fearful sight met our eyes," h/t

Mrs.. Lo Barron sat in a large easy chair
in the most fearful paroxysms. The old
butler and gardener and two women, one
of whom, I think, was her dressing maid

and exhausted. The window shutters
remained unopened, and the gas was still
burning. When we came near, we saw
that she was tied to the chair.

we oould manage her and be safe ourselves.'

" *We think, sir/ said the gardener,
.with aome hesitation, 'that there's no one
to hear in the house. "Rats leave a sinking ship," and this one's (,'oin^ down
mighty fast, I judge, aud then, beting
your honor's pardon, we feel fearsome
'bout going to the bell. There's something strangelike 'bout master, and he's
close to the bell.' Austin i.ud I sprang
to the recessed corner so dimly lighted.
Oh, Mr. Newton, I have, cowardlike,
left the worst to the last I In his chair,
his head resting on the marble pillar, was
Le Barron"���	
''Not dead!" exclaimed Mr. Newton,
his face blanching with horror���"aad,
oh, do not say by his own hand!"
, '"No���I hope���I think not���Austin waa
the first to rise above the terrible shock
and left at onco for the nearest medical
aid. I could learn nothing from the
poor frightened and exhausted servants,
but as near as I could gather from the
time the miserable man entered his
house yesterday it had been the scene of
. the most disgraceful and sickening tu-
. mult. Till late in the evening most of
the servants had been in Stella's employ, and I imagine, from hints dropped
from the gardener, what was passing ia
the family room was a matter of aw
misa.
"After Estella's departure as the serr-
. ants were closing the house the sounds
that had alarmed me aroused their attention. When they entered, the mistress was raving through the room like
one possessed, the women said. They
were frightened and ran to call in the
two men. Whon they returned, her husband, without rising from the chair, was
feebly trying to calm her as she stood
raging over him. They secured hor with
great difficulty and some danger. I apprehend, for many articles once objects
of pride to her lay broken and scattered
all around as if she had furiously thrown
them. It took them some time to control her, and for safety they were 00m-
pelled to bind her.
"When they next thought of poor Le
Barron, he was juat as I found him. In
the meantime I had opened the shutters
and extinguished the gaa, but the sunlight made tho horrors more apparent.
Leaving tho frantic woman to the servants, 1 examined her husband, but oould
find no iraco oi' violence save a bruise oil
his brow by some article thrown���made,
1 fear, by his wife when, the servants
seized lier. But Ur. Shelby, whom Austin soon brought, says it was 'probably
not severe enough to have caused his
death. Dr. Shelby has been his medical
adviser for some months past, and ht
thinks his anxiety, exaggerated by the
fearful storm that burst upon him when
he told his pecuniary troubles, hastened
bis death from disease of the heart.
"Austin remained to make all needful
arrangements for the inquest, and as
soon as I could be spared I hastened to
you, for I think you and Mrs. Newton
are greatly needed there now."
"We will go with you immediately.**
"Can I be of servtoe in an? wa|f
asked George.
"I will thank you to order me on* of
the carriages. I did not intend to, use
either of them again, but this is a -work
ol necessity."
"One word before we leave*. I found
the two youngest children, Jennie and
Robert, hid in the parlors, half dead with
fright. Their nurse is not to be found.
Hearing the noise, I presume, they had
orept down from the nursery and probably fearing to return havo been concealed there all night. Jennie, you know,
is a sweet, thoughtful child���very unlike
her sisters. Robbie, Dr. Shelby savs,
has never been very bright or robust.
"I suppose," said Granville, with muoh
confusion, "jrou will hardly be willing to
give me a share in providing for your
proteges?"
How unlike this hesitation to Jasper's
natural impulsive generosity! What
could it mean unless the knowledge ou
his part that his interest and labor might,
soon be so separated from his northern
friends that he would be unable to share
their generous cares? _
"Ita his chair, his head retting em tt*
marble pillar, wm Le Barron."
The shadows of vexation and sorrow���
almost doubt���again crossed Rose's brow.
As Eustace's dark eye sought her lover's
for a moment it. had in its calm dignity a
meaning she could not fathom, and her
heart beat wildly when she saw Jasper's
quail before it. What fear restrained
her natural impetuosity from demanding
a solution at once?
In reply to Jasper's question Eustace
simply shook his head, but her father
pi.rtly reassured her by the calm and apparently unsuspicious manner in which
he answered:
"We will settle all details when we
return. Now we must attend to the
more pressing wants."
In the course of the ride Mrs. Newton
asked Eustace how Maud appeared when
taken to her parents and compelled to
witness all the horrors of that scene.
"Oh, my dear madam! Your question reminds me that I have not given
the miserable girl a thought since I entered that room! The sight .that met
my eyes at first bewildered me, and
when I could rouse above it my whole
attention was so engrossed by immediate
necessities that���well, excuses are useless.   It was cruel negligence."
"No, Eustace, you blame yourself
needlessly. It was a most natural oversight. She was requiring no attention,
and unless in sight apd taking some port
I do not wonder sou did npt think of
her,"    ��� ., ;'      ,.
"She was not in the room, I am sure,
for I have no recollection of seeing or
hearing her- again after one glimpse of
t hat terrible scene. 1 now rcmc:n'oer tho
remark she made about keeping her own
counsels as closely as her sister had done,
to which I then attached little importance, but which now I fear may i_re
been painfully significant."
When they reached the house, they
vrere met by Dr. Shelby aud Mr. - ���.-vm
;.nd informed that they were roil* ;���* ! f
an inquest, waiting only for Dmuiir's
e.'i*"juce, uud then would bo ready \o i*>
lnq-ywthc body to another apartment lo
be prepared for the grave.
After a long and curnest consultni-'on
with reference to Mrs. Le Barron 1 0
doctor suggested that the wisest p' in
would be to remove her to some c... i
retreat or asylum ns soon as possibl .
Inquiries were thou made for _ 1.
Neither the doctor nor Austin had 1 1
1.,r, and such had been the exciten- ....
and confusion her absence was uuj.o-
ticed.
Op asking for the young lady one o*
the servants said she thought she liuu
not returned.
"Returned?" said Mr. Newton.
"Yes,  sir.    I  guess she was sort r-'1
frightened us soon us she saw hcrftitli*
nnd she noticed him Before Mr. Dim
did.   Miss Maud never ti oivlrr mr.c.

"Do you know where slie went?"
"No, mum, not sure; but Thomns

ney's."
"Thinks he did? Why, Thomas, don't
���you know whom you took there?"

accompanied by another gentleman boarded
the south going train on Thursday, somewhere down the line. They had no money,
but signified, their valises as security. The
contents were found to be of ladies wearing
apparel, some portion of which the two
sports put up for fare. The famous Marlborough was liked by women because he
took money from them; probably Jennie
loves her swain for the same reason.

Through the astuteness of Chief McKinnon, there are now lodged safely in j��il two
burglars of a distinctly American cumplex-

on Thursday und loon beds at the Grand
Hotel. On Friday morning they left the
hotel without taking breaktast, but inquired
as to the dinner hour. A little later, the
proprietor, Mr. \V. Steele, found his trunk
had been forced opeu aud a considerable
quantity of valuables uud money gone, He
gave private notice to the chief and the affair was kept quiet until the men could be
located. On the surmise that the two
thieves had walked down the track and
would board the south going train, Chief
McKinnon went down on the train yester-
yesterduy morning aud they walked iuto the
manacles at Chemainus. They were transferred at Duucan's aud brought back again
with most of the spoils, which included a
number of rings, some of them being very
valuable. They give the names of John
