Nelson, Deo. 21.—R. L. Wrig-
glesworth & C ompany, who have
the contract for the construction of
260 coke ovens for the Crow's Nest
Coal company at Michel, state that
owing to the delay in the delivery
of the brick they were nnable to
complete their contract within the
specific time. They have already
completed 116 ovens and have entered into a bond to complete the
remainder by July 1, 1904. The
contract price for the 250 ovens
will exceed 1250,000. In a contract of this kind 300,000 silica
brick and 155,000 fire brick are
used. The latter are very expensive, and cost delivered at Miohel
from 8 to 14 cents apiece.
„.The fire brioks are imported from
Pittsburg. Experience has proven
in the ooal fields of Pennsylvania,
where ooke is made at Connesville
and elsewLem, the silica brick for
crowns is the best. These are also
imported from Pittsburg. The

Sandon mineowners are angry
with the Slocan member Davidson
for stating on the floor of the provincial house that the lead bounty
has produoed no improvement in
the situation.
The Rossland Kootenay, encouraged by the ore showing on that
upper levels of the Kootenay mine,
has determined to explore the low*
er levels more exhaustively. This is
to be done by diamond drilling.
It will be remembered that from a
point about 1000 feet from the portal of No. 6 tunnel, itself 600 feet
below the outcrop on the summit
of Kootenay mountain, a abaft
was sunk some years sinoe 400 *
feet. Drifting waa then started
and carried east and west for between 300 and 400 feet on either
side. Some of thia work, however,
has been done recently. Tbe results obtained, while fair, were not-
altogether satisfactory, and th
presence of better ore bodies than
those hitherto encountered, is sus-
peoted to tbe north and eouth
Henoe the diamond drilling. A
contract has been made with the
Diamond Drilling oompany of
Spokane, which has been operating
for soma time past in other mines
of the camp, and two crews are to
be set to work in the morning. If
the same oharaoter ot ores whioh
has been located above is found
below, the Kootenay mine will be
doubled in value, and probably a
larger plant than that first intended will have to be ereoted.

Nelson from Alameda, Cal., within
the next month. It is stated that
he will oome for the purpose of
patting into use on the Arlington
ore a modification or improvement

The despised sage brush, so plentiful in the dry belt of the provinoe,
hasjbeen found to contain a large
percentage of commercial rubber.
A oompany is now being formed at
Denver to manufacture the sage
brush rubber.
The discovery of rubber in tbe
sage plant was made by a prospect
or, lost in the hills, who chewed*
the root whioh he found to
con tsin a rubber like substance.
On returning to civilization he
made his experiences known to
others, and so led to the formation
of a new industry.
Paris, Deo. 21.—The Dreyfus
commission reassembles next Wednesday to reoeive the report of Victor Mereier, the senior member of
the commission and one ot the
ministry of justioe, on his examination of the new papers in the
oase. It is expected that a decision will be reached at the end ol
next week.
Meantime the sensational newspaper claims to foreshadow the decision and subsequent reinstatement of Dreyfus.
The Patrie says he will be made
a colonel- of artillery and
appointed a chevalier of the
Legion of Honor. These reports
are not taken seriously and are
considered to be merely expressions
of the general belief that the ohanoes
favor Dreyfus.

THE MUNICIPAL ISSUE.
The Miner Bays that the first of
the munioipal issues during the
ooming campaign will be the con
servation of revenues. There bas
been far too rnuoh extravagance in
in the past, much oi whioh we are
paying for cow. Misplaced econo
my, however, is simply another
name for extravagance. An inefli
cient polioe force meant the employment of Thiel's Agency, and
the consequent heavy loss to the
city. Economy ovor the city solicitor meant the employment of
outside counsel in the Blue arbitration case, involving another
heavy loss. Bullheaded persistency
in self-styled reform measures has
cost the cily a pretty penny, and if
the present incumbent of the may
oral chair bo continued, it is likely
to cost it another. But though
economy is in a sense a making ol
revenue, yet it is only so partially,
the revenue must first bo there
If we have the revenue we oan
afford, without hurting the city, to
pay aldermen or any  number of
useless ollioials.   If we     have not,
we cannot afford to pay
even for the seiviceB of
good men. The citizens have
declared that there is no
money to be derived from gam
bling licences; there aro also others
who also wish to restrict the num
berof saloon licences, and yet the
revenue in this direction bas
amounted in the past to large
sums of money, from which we are
now cut off. The ordinary ratepayer is getting tired of having
rateB piled upon him to the limit
poBBible. There is a certain
amount of revenue derived from the
water, amounting at present to
some six thousand dollars per annum clear, which could be largely
increased, could the city serve the
mines with water. There is also
a large amount of revenue derivable from tbe electric lighting,possibly quite as much as from the
water service as pointed out. Herein then are the main issues of the
oampaign. Economies must begin
at home, and not in the methods
advocated by the present mayor,
who has J made everpbody
doubt his good faith by bis aot of
cutting everybody's salary but his
own. But to say that economy is
the first issue of the campaign, is to
put the cart before the horse.
THE SOCIALISTS.
is certain that no voice has been!l?^&%&^^^?§2^8?^^^aS§rZ^9
heard in any ol the Socialist cr
Labor organs of the province, es
pecially those affecting the districts for which the Socialist and
Labor member are silting—no voice
has been upraised calling for the
extermination of these friends of
the enemy of the Miner. The
World does not profess to know
what bargain, if any, has been
made between the Socialists and
the Conservatives, but in saying
that the Conservatives will surely
have to pay a price for their support, it is simply quoting the testimony of Bimilar alliances in the
past in other oountries. As long
as the Socialists can deliver the
goods, their constituents have little
fault to find. And, we suppose,
that as long as McBride can remain
the head of his ministry and keep
the Liberals out, by help of the
Socialists, or by the help of any
one else, the Conservatives of the
provinoe will be satisfied. It is
really a oase of 'you soratch my
back and I'll scratch yourB.'

NOTE AND COMMENT.
Liberals are supposed to be Lib
erals and Conservatives Conserva
tives, whether in provincial, Canadian or British issues. Coming
down to earth and dispensing with
vague generalities and enunciation
of windy principles, which never
seemed to be aoted upon, but are
only kept, oloset wise, to be gazed
on, will anyone try to find a basis
of similarity in any one of the
three platforms of either party on
which an election is fought.
Now that Lord Dundonald, 00m
mandor in obief of His Majesty's
Forces in the Dominion of Canada,
has pronounced an expert opinion
that the inlands at the mouth of
the Portland Canal, whether under
the Union Jack or under Old Glory
are useless as dominating the terminus of a transcontinental railway perhaps the laymen on both
sides of the lines, who are not supposed to be military experts will
cease yelling. For if Dundonald
don't know, why in thunder is he
wearing his uniform?
ELOPED WITH COACHY
Some Sensational Divorce
Proceedings of a Gerv
man Princess.
The Miner lias relumed to the
charge about the illdoing of the
Socfalists and their confederate,
tbe Labor member for the Slocan.
It declares lhat those men will be
turned down by their constituents
on going up again for election. The
offenco would seem to be the supporting of McBride in the acts 0/
the autumn session. The real
offenco probably is that as the
Miner was not personally represented in the McBride ministry,
tbe McBride ministry is therefore
not fit to live.   Be this as it may it
Berlin, Dec. 21.—Several relatives of Prince Frederick, of Schoen-
berg-Waldenberg, have been ex
amined ln camera by the court at
Dresden in the divorce proceedings
brought against him by the Princess Alice, his wife. The princess
says she will come from Italy in
the latter part of January to testify
under a guarantee lhat the hearing
will be private
The prince will not attend the
proceedings in any case. The
Princess Alice, of Schoenberg-Wal-
enberg, was reported about a
month ago to have eloped with her
coachman.
The story was subsequently denied from several sources. She is
a daughter of, Don Carlos, the pre
tender to the Spanish throne.

SYNOPSIS
Phra, who dies and lives again in
Britain, begins to recount his early adventures—He buys a British slave girl
and sails on a trading voyage to Cornwall and marries a British princess. Is
attacked and captured by the Romans.
Escapes and is murdered by the Druids.
Ie born again in later Roman Britain.
Fnds a tattooed record bv his wife, on
his body. Rescues a Roman lady from
a bull and is taken into favor. Lives
and dies in her service. Wakes up in
Saxon England just before the Battle of
Heatings. Rescues a Saxon Maiden
from the Conqueror.   Marries her.
CHAPTER VI (Continued j.
The good food and the warmth
and along day's work soon brought
my fair mistress's head upon her
hand, and presently she was lying
upon the withered leaveB in the
corner, a fair white flower shut up
(or the night time. So I finished
the steak and divided the remnants
between the dogs, and lay back
very well contented. But here
only commenced the strangeBt part
of that evening1
I had warmed my cross gartered,
buskined Saxon legs by the bliur
for the best part of an hour, thinking over all the strange episodes of
my coming to these ancient isles,
and seeing again, on the blank
hither wall, this very cirole all
aglow with the splendid oolor cf
its barbarous purpose, the mighty
concourse of the Britons set in thc
greenery of their "reverend oaks—
the onset of the Romans, the flash
and glitter of their close packed
ranks, and the gallant Sempronius
—alasl that ao good a youth should
be reduced to duet—and  thus, 1
suppose, I dozed.
And then it seemed all on a sudden a gust of wind swept down up-
onjthe flat roof overhead, shaking
even that ponderous stone—those
fierce and brawny hounds of mine
howled mo^t fearfully—crouching
behind with bristling hair and
Bhaking limbs—and, looking up,
there—strange, inoredible as you
will pronounce it—seated beyond
the fire on the stone the Saxon
had so lately left, drawing her
wild, rain wet British tresses
through her supple fingers—calm,
indifferent, happy—gazing upon
me with the gentle won'ter I had
seen before, was Blodwen, once
again herselfl
Need it be eaid how wild and
wonderful that winBome apparition seemed in that uncouth place,
how the hot fiueh of wonder burnt
upon my swart and weathered
cheeks aB I sat there and glared
through the leaping llames at that
pallid outline? Absently she
went on with her rhythmical combing, bowitching mo with her immaterial outline, and as I glowerod
with never a ready syllable upon
my idle toirgue, or any emotion
but wonder in heart beating lumul-
tuouBly under my hunter lunio,
tbe dogs lay moaning behind me,
and the wild fantastic uproar of
the tempest outside forced through
the clefts of our retreat the rain
streaks that sparkled and hissed in
the fireheap.
That time I did not fear, and
presently the Priuces^ looked up
and said, in a faint, distant voice,
that was like tho sound of the
breeze among seashore pine trees—
'Well done, my Phoenician!
Your courage giveB me strength.'
And as she spoke the worda seemed gradually clearer and stronger,
until presently they came sweeter
to me than the murmur of a sunny
river—gentler that the whispers of
the ripe corn and the south wind.

New Zealand has not only gained the full advantage of the Imperial penny post, but secured bo
far as letters from its islands are
concerned the same penny rate on
correspondence sent to Italy,
Portugal, Egypt, Chile, Costa Rica,
Mexioo, Switzerland, Siam, Paraguay and Peru, whilst Servia concedes a return penny rate in tqui-
ualent money of that country.
Servia thus reoiprocatos whilst
the other oountries named above
will deliver New Zealand letters
sent to addresses wilhin their territories if they bear the colony's
penny stamp, They or»nnot, as
they believo, well reoiprocatein the
matter as other states might do
mand like privileges and embarrass the. postal authorties.
The very considerable success
thus achieved by little New Zealand encourages! Mr. Henniker
Heaton, M. P., the great British
postal reformer, in his hope that
when the next Postal Uftions Convention of the governments of the
oivilized world is held, as arranged, at Rome, in 1904, an aU round
further advance may be made and
an almost world wide penny or
two cent postage system adopted.

"Sandy Bottom" is said to be a
play combining both pathos and
comedy in teat way whioh has so
often been spoke of as that "The
laughter chases away the tears."
A play to enjoy lasting popularity
must possess these qualifications or
else fail to long interest a fickle
publio. It is necessary to touch
the strings of the human heart.
'Sandy Bottom" will be tbe attreo-
tion at the Rossland Opera Home,

Nelson. Deo, 21.—A mysterious
drowning took place on Arrow lake
last Wednesday afternoon, resulting in the death of 0 Drolet.a timb
er crusser for the Yale-Columbia
Lumber Company. Between half-
past 3 and 4 o'olock in the afternoon Drolet started from Haloy on
in Bmall rowboat for St. Leon, a
few miles away. That was the
last seen of him. The next morning the boat was found on the
beach, about midway between the
two points, with the bow torn open
and Drolet's ooat hanging on the
nails of the jagged edge. Searching parties were organized to look
for the body, and the Yale-Columbia company sent out thire tag
Irene, which ie still in the vioinity,
to assist in the search. So far how
ever, no traoes of the body haa
been found, or anything whioh
would lend to dear up the mystery
of the affair.
The moBt probable theory advanced by those who have inspect
ed the boat iB that it was upset
aocidently while some distance
from the shore and that Drolet
righted it, and taking off his coat
put it in the bow and tried to paddle the partially submerged oraft
ashore, and that finally overcome
by the coldness of the water, he let
go and was drowned. The boat
may then have drifted in with the
wind and waves and been wreoked
on the boulders along the Bhore
This is merely surmise, however,
and nothing definite is known Its
to what really did happen.

shift Sunday and Christmas Day
being a holiday the intervening
day is hardly worth working and
tne men will in consequence be
given a holiday so that they may
enjoy their Christmas thia year
thoroughly. The Rossland Kootenay will close on Christmas Day
but as there is only one shift
work at this mine and as there has
been difficult shipping for the past
few weeks, owing to the lack of
snow, this mine is in a different
position to the others and probably,
therefore, will not have so extended
a holiday.
