(SECOND   YEAR.-NO.   70.
An Ex-Deputv Returning Officer Gills Him Down.
Government Agent Morris' Action In
Uivlng Notice Woitliy of Commendation.
Totho Editor ot Ihe GRAND Forks M NRE:
Deaii SIR!—My attention has been
called to Mr. Higgins' letter which appeared in your issue of 28 ultimo. Mr.
Higgins appears to be laboring under a
misapprehension cf facts. He says
there is no such a thing as a closed voters list under our system of regulation
ot voters. If such is the case, why is it
necessary at a g;neril electioi to issue
a supplementary voters lisi?
If you refer to the act q toted by Mr,
Higgins (B. C. Co 1. chip 3$) you will!
ti id th it on the first Monday in August j
cf each year, a Court of Revision is j
held and on the 1st of Sep. a certified
copy of the revised register of voters
with a iiend nsnts and addition is for-
wardei to the Register of the S jpreme
Court in Victoria. 13/ s ection 14 of this
act, thii revised regist r is tbe register
of voters until it is again revised, but
section 6 of the act makes provision for
the revision nf the list but once a year.
Hence it follows that the voters list or
register of votjifj, as revised on the 1st
Monday i.i August last year Was the register until it was again revised this
And the reason for this is qnite plain.
At any time a member may die, resign
or b.*co.*ne a Minis er of the Crown an 1
thus bring about a by-election; 50 that
there must be kept constantly on hand
a revised and corrected voters list
which may be used should a by-election
tr ke place. No list can bj used unless ',
it is first revised otherwise the names of
p ople no. (n'.i'.led to vote could be
added to it without number. But who
ever heard of a rev.sed supplementary
list being issue: for a by-election?
But 1I113 revised   register  of  voters
may be used in other ways.    Should a ■
new   redistribution bill   be introduced |
next sess;ou it will no doubt be framed
on the voteis list for the different dis-1
tri**ts and ridings.   Bat what list will be
used when  the new redistribution bill *
is drawn up?   Will they use the list as
jt st rids now or ihe list with additions i
to the end of tie year or will  they get j
Mr. Higgins to furnish them with a list?;
It is very probable they will use the j
certified copies of   the   lists   deposited
with   tha   Registrar   of   the   Supreme
Court in Victoria by the diff irent collectors of voters for their inspection d;i-
t.'icts on the 1st of this month.   If these
are the lists to be use**}, then it is a matter of the first importance to the people
of this district that every available man
should be put on the voters lists before
the court of revision last month.   If the
collector ot votes had this in view when
hi issued the notice referred toinJMr.
Higgins' letter, he   certainly  deserves
credit for his foresight and care.   And
it shows well for him that he has taken
enough interest in  his  work  to  place
copies of the   voters  list  in  different
places so thit any one can see whether
his name is on the list or  not, and has
thereby greatly facilitated the collection
of names for the vjters Hot.
Nor was this notice without its effect.
1 saw in the columns of your valuable
paper in May last tbat Si names were
sent in at one line from Boundary to
the collector of voles. These names
are now no doubt on the copy of Ihe
lisi deposited with the Registrar of the
Supreme Court in Victoria and will probably at no distant day, help towards
placing the E 1st Riding of Yale in \he
foremost rank as the most imporlant
district in British Columbia.
No doubt when the new redistribution
bill is introduced it will contain ample
provision for adding names to the voters
list up to within a short time of tbe election and the fact that names may be
added, widely advertised as was done
immediately before the last general election. Bat this is still in the future and
the c -lk-tor was perfectly right in
wording the notice so as to keep strictly
wiihin the limits of the act now in force.
Especially as no sensible man in view
of what took place at the last two general elections would for a moment
dream tbat those persons whose names
are added af.or the last revision in Aug.
and before tho election (probably next
•June) wil! be debarred from voting on
Vba: ftccounf,
Surely Mr. II ggins has  discovered   a
"are's Nest.    I understind  lhe  collector of votes is furnishing blank forms of
app'ication    and   renewing   names   as
bn*.k'y as ever   and   his   promised   to
i have new cop-es of the list  made and
j placed m diff-'rent parts of  the  district
j to replace the old ones which are now
I ob<okte.

Monday afternoon with all the members
present fxceping Mayor Manly and
Alderman Dufoul.
On motion of Alderman J ihnson Dr.
ITypworth was called to the chair. The
clerk t^en re id the mi nutes of the last
mceti ig which wer*; adopted.
A communication was then read from
the chief comm ssioners oflice at Victoria, denying the report which has been
extensively circulated of late, to the ef-

that the mutter h id been referred to

Upon motion of Aldeiman Davir, seconded by L. A. Manly, the clerk'was
instructed 10 communica'e with Superintendent of Provincial Police Hu-sy
with reference to the provincial constable here acting for the city. Thc clerk
was also instructed to communicate w th
Government agent Norris of Vernon, regarding the obtaining of the provincial
goal for a citv lockup.
At this point in the proceedings Alderman W. C. K. Manly threw a bomb
into the meeting, in the »hap; of a motion calling for the resignation of Clerk
Aikman. Tbe motion was reidily seconded by Alderman Johnson, and on
being put by the chair was carried; Al.
dermen Hep worth and L. A. Manly not
voting, while Alderman Davis, who was
sttting near the door when the motion
was mule, suddenly recollected that he
had not b;en far his usual afternoon
bike ride.and made his escape bofore the
q.iestion could be put to a vote. According to the Dylaws a member not
voting his vote is counted for the afli.*-
malive, thus the motion was carried.
Tne announcement from the chair
that the motion had carried brought Alderman L. A. M mly to his feet, who
protested against the procedure, anl
demanded of uis brother alderman to
know the reason for the motion.

which we have not yet bten able, to ascertain. In our opinion it is {lulikely
that the matter will result in any serious trouble to Judge Spinks, as such
charges as above mentioned are aito
gether too trivial to cauBe his removal

with ihe facts will agree that mere is
no harder worked official on ihe bench
than Judge Spinks. Fur the past few

SATURDAY, SEPT. n, 1897.
While it is to be regreted, it is nevertheless a fact, tbat a number of the people of this section ar; very much discouraged qy reasons of the hard times,
or in more correct terms thc scarcity of
innney, Sonic have even reached the
point where they imagine the country is
pn its down bill slide—practically deed,
as th.yv ten.*: it. While it must be ad-
piitted tl'.e outlook nt the present writing is anything bat encouraging to a,
large percentage of our citizens, we can
really stee no cause for alarm.
Thc cause of the reclining, or propc.-
|y termed, dorment conditiqn.of a country with the bright light of a fast approaching and glorious future shining
upon i', as this same suction, should be
easily apprehended—and to a large ma
j irily it is without doubt clearly understood.
With the num1)2roi people.'h ; amount
pf wnri. being done; and la*-t, but not
leant, the wonderful chov, ing of the many
■"rrorrerttes cf this section, what could be
the cav.ee of the present low condition of
affair.*:' is a question asked by miny and
answered in every manner conceivable.
Let us look the situa'ion siiuaie in the
face. At present, this section is really
more advanced and prosperous than it
ever has been before, and is far ahead of
any other mining section not provided
with transportation facilities. The truth
pf this assertion is indisputable. There
is more people, more development ana
niore enthush'siT. both in the Kettle river
and lioundary creek districts than can be
real ?jc! until a visit to the many camps
har b'.*er. made. Mining deals, involving large sums of money, are not so
plentiful, as could be desired, but that
doesn't alter the fact that the mines are
here, nor decrease the size of the mam
moth ledges to be fouled in nearly all thc
prospects: but ;t does hinder a much
larger amount of development ivorl* being done and also causes, to a certain
extent, the discouraging financial condition of the present time. Willi the as
surance that we are to have railway con.
nection within any reasonable length of
time, C, tide cf prosperity wili sweep ova.

The importance of having a creditable display pf ores; from the Grand
Porks district at thc coming fruit fair to
be held in Spokrme r.e;;t month should
not be under estimited by the people of
the district. When the subject was
first tallied of everyone expressed the
opinion that we should be represented
iu a mannor tbat would gi.e us rank
jvith thc greatest bullion yielding coun
.lias in the world. At present all interest in the matter seems to have died oul
and unless someone siarts the ball rolling tbe display this year will not equal
that made last year, which was of such
commonplace order tiiat it did, not do
iustice to the district. All mine owners
and others interested in the cL.elop-
ment ct the district and haying its re-
sourc?s properly placed before thc mining world should make an effort to have
an exhibit at the coming fair that will
oe equaled by no other. The Lcnedls to
be de lived from a nicely arranged mineral exhibit will repay lhe trouble and
expense in more ways than one. The
North Fork produces a greater variety
of ores than all most arty section in the
province and the sooner this fact is
made public thc easier it will be to induce capital to como this way and there
is no bene;* way of accomplishing this
2nd than having a ci editable displn.y at
;he Spokane exposition,,
The aanoucement from the Trail
e'ews published elsewhere that both of
.be surrey p-.rties which will be locating
the line ol the Pentieton branch are now
in the field and at work, wil' be cheering
news to everyone interested in the future
9' Grand Forks mining district. The
published interview ol V ice-Pres.Sbaugh-
<iessy to the effect ".that in a few weeks
the people would know that the C. P. R.
appreciated the importance of the Boundary creek district,'* gives credulance
to the report that Mr. Chaughnessy and
Mr. Heiiv/e came to some understanding during his recent visit in Kootenay.
let this matter he as it mny, the people
of tbis district are anxiously waiting for
further information concerning the
movements 01 the railway magnates.
Tue Western Mining World seems
io tbj.nk that some of the Klondyke pil
jriv^s are aireadv experiencing in part
the truth of Cov. Swineford s statement;
,'You can say to anybody who thinks of
going to Klondyke that they will have a
pleasant time if they live to get there.
•\flfr they have been  there three days
they will begin to dia-.v comparisons
and wonder what kind of a paradise
hell is, anyway, compared witn that
country, The result wiil be much the
same whether they arrive there in the
summer or winter. The fac: is that the
upper Yukon shews the greatest extremes of hent and cold that are shown
an*.***.!: re in Korth America. In
winter 30 degrees below is mild, the
thermometer reading as low es 80,
while during the months of June, July
and August it gets ambitious and climbs
tc thc top of the tube, ranging Irom no
to 130. One can protect himself from
thc cold, but it is impossible to do sn
against excessive heat, accompanied by
the plague of mosquitoes, deer (lies and
other winged pests."
The slump in silver ii keeping the
Slocan mine owners guessing. It does
not pay to work argentiferous ores below a certain figure, and the low water
mark if not already reached, is dangerously near at li*:ml. As the last presidential p&mpaign on the other side of
the Itnc was fought on a gold and silver
standard platform, and thc goldites
were successful, there is not much
chance for ihe price of silver advancing

in power.
Diamonp. Jubilees only happen once
in sixty years. The arrest cf the violators of thc law in Grand Forks does not
happ.n at all: at least there has not
been o.-.e made eince the town was in-
ci.rpore.ted, notwithstanding there has
beon several eases of a very flagrant
nature of late that should have certainly
come under the "eagle eye1' of our city
sition justifies us in believing that, as
far as thc present members are concerned, that principle will be adhered
to. It wiil be for the electors to see
that the men whom they choose at t'"e
next election to support the present
members are equally reliable.
The rapid development of the mining
interests in Kootenay and the southern
part of Yale District will necessitate additional representation for these parts
of the Province. In calculating what
additional representation wili be necessary, we do not need to inquire into the
actual population, (or which, indeed, we
have no reliable statistics, but, may
safely ?ake the number of names on the
voters' lis', and we do not suppose it
will be necessary to impress on our
readers in those distri .ts, and throug-
out the Province, the necessity of seeing
that all duly qualified voters are prof-
erly registered.
While additional representation can
justly be claimed by the districts above
particularly referred to, ard, perhaps,
other districts, it by no means follows
that the present number of members in
tbe House should be increased. While
thee districts are under-represented,
there are quite a sufficient number, as
will be seen from the list above, relatively ever represented, to ill low of pro-
\ ision being made to redress the inequality without any increase in the
membership. Were it only liom the
standpoint of increased expenses, any
increase in the members of the House i1*
to be depreciated, so long as it can be
shown that such increase is not neces-
nary to give equitable representation.

Hon. t< B. Martin's remarks at thc
Board of Trade do not justify the bylief
that the provincial government wd! do
much, if anything, that is practical. Mr.
Martin instead ol dealing with the question under discussion essayed to defend
his vote for Heir 'Jo's Pentieton railroad
and the Bute InleiQuesnelie scheme-
He gave a reason lor ydting for the
former which he certainly never hinted
at during the session of lhe legislature,
and this plea that the latter had no connection whatever with the British Pacific railway will ciny no weight with
those wno know the facts. One admission that Mr, Martin did make was
of some importance, He declared em-
phaiically (hat the most feasible route
into Cariboo was by way of North river.
Why with this knowledge he supported
the Bute Inlet route remains a puzzle,
which we will not undertake to solve
just now.—KamlQops Inland Sentinel.

of public honor, Boston is a place that

to elevate one whom many others have
hono ed, and one who would certainly
be re peeted when speaking ex cathedra, at least those within reach of his
right arm swing.—Montreal Gazette.

It will be seen from the foregoing
table thr,t the inequality of treatment
complained of has not been confined to
the neighborhood of Victoria, though it
happens there to be most glaringly exemplified. Wherever the Government
of the day counted on obtaining support, there has been no lack of generosity in allowing districts relatively un-
populous to retain a liberal share of the
representation. Mr. Sen.i 11 has reiterated in his address the principle laid
down by the Independent party in iScjo,
on which representation should be adjusted, and the past record of the Oppa*
W. C. McDougal!, who is putting in a
gold saving plant on ihe Eighteen Karat placer group, near Cariboo creek,
has completed a 600 foot ditch and also
a mammoth wing dam and expects to
be ready (o run the pay dirt through
the machine by the first of next week.
Since wo'k has been started on this
ground the whole group has been
sampled and found to contain gold in
paying quantities.—New Denver Ledge.

A Battered Tablet from the Ancient Tern.
•►!<■ of Herod*
In the interesting museum of antiquities at Constantinople the object
that struck me most was a hoary, battered tablet, with a long Greek inscription cut on it in seven lines. It was
discovered in Jerusalem about the end
of May, 1871, by the French archaeologist, Clerniont-tlanneau, at a considerable depth below the ground, in the
foundations of an Arab house, not far
from the mosque of Omar, on what
might have boen tho site of the temple
of Herod.
This is one of the very few relics of
that magnificent structure which have
survived to our day. The Inscription
is tn capital monumental letters and
may be translated th.U8! "No stranger
run enter within tlie balustrade round
the sanctuary nnd inclosures. Whoever is caught will bo responsible to
himself for his deal li." Josephus gives
ft graphic description of Herod's temple, aaid mentions that the court of the
Gentiles was separated from tlie part
tliat was restricted to the Jews hy two
parallel walls, about 15 feet apart. The
outer wall woe about 4.y2 feet high.
It was an elaborate carved stone, balustrade with l'i doors in it, each of which
had a pillar in froait of it, bearing an
Inscription in Greek and Latin, forbid**
ding any fnreignl'r to enter the inolo.
sure on pain of den.th. Josephus mentions that the Unmans respected this
law ami no Gentile ever ventured to
Intrude beyond this point.
The prohibition in question, however, was long regarded as apocryphal,
even although I'hilo spoke of the inscription and corroborated the statement of the Jewish historian. But. the
discovery of CIcnnont-Ganneau has
placed the matter beyond dispule. The
tablet, which he> f-ound was part of one
of the columns guarding thc inner
sanctuary from the approach of unhallowed feet, and the connection between the inscription carved on it and
the passage iu Josephus is most striking. The expressions and forms are
almost identical. There is indeed a
curious variation in tlie Greek word
for "balustrade," or partition wall. In
the passage in Josephus it is druphak-
tos, whereas in the inscription it is
truphaktos; but this variation maybe accounted for by the fact that Josephus used the correct classical term,
while the inscription spelled the word
according to the Jewish method of
pronouncing it, changing a d into a t.
Josephus twice irofers to the inscription, once in his "Antiquities;" and the
parallel passages are. differently worded, showing that he did not intend to
give the exact phraseology of the stone
monument, but only the sense; and,
therefore, that, the tablet should give
the sense of Josephus' words, without
his exact expression, is just what might
have beeu expected in. such a discov.-
pry. According to Clermont-Ganneau,
tlie tablet, is the most ancient, as well
ns the. most interesting Greek inscription which archaeological investigation in Jerusalem has produced. Its
bearings are most important. It supplies a standard of comparison by
which to distinguish the Herodian
sculpture and palaeographic works
from those of previous or later days.—

Suffocated  by Sulphur. ■*>
Whilq two men were hunting on the
Yellowstone river, tihey saw in a. small
gulch a grizzly bear, curled up as if
(isleep. Being men of experience, they
climbed up the side of tlie gulch and,
when out of reach, hurled rocks at the
huge animal. To their surprise it never
moved, although hit quite frequently.
Presently it dawned upon them that
the grizzly was dead, and closer examination revealed such to be a fact.
There was no iypu,nd on its bodT, and
while the men were pondering over this
singular circumstance, they became
conscious of a sense of suffocation from
strong sulphur fumes, arising from several holes in the ground near by. At
some risk they investigated further
and found Una skeletons of four other
bears, an elk, squirrels and other small
game, all evidently asphyxiated by tho
noxious gases. The gideh made a natural basin in whieh the gas settled,
nnd, ns it. is heavy nnd lies near the
surface, quadrupeds fall easy victims
in this denth-trap. Even the hunters
suffered from severe headache and
nausea, after their bfief stay.—Golden

from a Petrie point of view. Separate
houses were uncovered of very fragile
construction consisting of wooden pillars, while the walls were pu-.'together
of plaited reeds covered with mud. The.
latter were rendered at once, impervious and suitable for decoration by being coaled with white plaster. Drawings were discovered on these walls,
und well executed, of human figures,
horses, dogs and flowers, and judging by tho copies whieh have been
brought back, of no small artistic
merit. Small figures of Buddha, were

Scarcrly     Anything      Io
All visitors to Faris rave about the
delicacy of fhe food and daintiness ol
the service. They* do not know some
of thc ways followed by restaurants
and chefs. At the lower class of Paris
restaurants a very ingenious fraud has
been in practice for half a century.
They make, beef tea or bouillon without
beef—warm water colored and flavored
with burned onions antj caramel as
bouillon. To supply the little greage
bubbles which connoisseurs demand
was the only trouble. Finally a cool; hit
| upon the ingenious device of blowing
a spoonful of fresh oil over the. soup.
The oil immediately forms in tiny
beads on the surface and Hiere is your
soup. Nowadays every cafe of Ihis sor!
has its employe au.-c yeux do bouillon,
whose sole duty is to make the little
eyes or bubbles of grease on tlie soup.
Parisians of*n, certain class are immensely fond of ham, so much so that
the number of hams eaten in Paris
could not be furnished by all ihe. pigs

shoulder as well as the leg being cure.)
—this being the French practice. The
demand is supplied by buying up old
ham bones and ingeniously inserting
them into pieces of pickled poik, which
are trimmed into shape, covered will:
grated bread crusts and then sold for
ham. In this way a bone docs duty
for hundreds of times. Still, tlie supply of bones was limited, ifnd it wa*
not inconvenient to be put, out if one':;
neighbor did not return the ham bone
which the dealer relied upon securing
tine day before to recover fer you. So
a man conceived the idea of manufacturing ham bones wholesale., and made
a. fortune from the sale, of these artificial foundations. Nowadays, there,

Evil   Splrlln   Whioh Must Be   Driven
If a house is to be repaired wonderful forethought is necessary. The evil
spirits which are supposed to occupy
each dwelling that mortals have inhabited cause the carpenter no end of
trouble and no trilling expense, says
Llppincott's. First, an astrologer must
I..' consulted with regard to the most
lucky day for beginning thc work;
i hen a square suspended from the ridge-
beam is a notification to tiie spirits of
darkness ;!.:,( their dwelling-place is
to be disturbed, wherefore the square
thing for them to do is to move out
quietly me! peacefully. Next the carpenters make offerings to these unseen residents. 'Hirs*-* gifts seem to
sny: "If you please, spirits of darkness, accept this bribe and speedily
take your* flight."
Next tlie neighbors must be warned
that these evil Influences are about to
be turned loose, perhaps to seek shelter
under a neighboring roof. Kvery house
on that street receives a notice that
upon a certain day and hour repairs are
to begin on the dwelling of Ah Sin.
Each household can then pay the imps
not to enter their doorway, but to go
to the next neighbor.
Even the fainter cannot begin his
work iu the spring until after thc national festivals are celebrated in honor
of the special pods who are supposed
to make it their particular business to
look after the welfare of those who till
the soil. In a land where more than
1.00,000,000 people, are supported by agriculture, where many farms have been
in cultivation for three or even four
mllleniums, wc naturally expect to find
skill in that line of work. In this we |
are not disappointed, for Chinese farming is scientific handwork.

The Mlnlnler Doe» tke Troponins; for
thc  Girl's  Hand.
When a Mennonite young man desires
to marry a Mennonite young woman,
instead, of toiling her about it he confides in the minister. If the latter
thinks well of the proposed match he
informs the young woman and generally devotes considerable time to pleading the case of the lovesick swain, since
it is considered somewhat indelicate for
the woman to yield too easily. Even
after their engagement the minister
conducts most of tlie negotiations lcad-
ii (jf up to the marriage ceremony.
This always takes place tu a chiirali,
to which everybody is entitled to admission on tho wedding day without invitation. Two weeks before the wedding
the "banns" are called from the pulpit
aud during that fortnight the bride and
groom arc allowed to meet without tlie
presence of a third party. The first
portion of the ceremony consists of a
sermon, generally on some suoh subject
as the duties ot husband and wife. One
such sermon preached at a wedding last
summer lasted about two hours, although the minister announced in fhe
beginning that because of tho hot
weather he would "be brief." At the
close of the sermon the contracting parties, who had been seated on opposite
sides of the church, walked to thc
altar, where they answered affirmatively a series of questions aud were pronounced man and wife. Then they returned to their seats on opposite sides
of tlie auditorium and.the regular services of thc day were resumed.
CurlotiN    Efnarineerinff   Strncture   at
the Mouth of lhe lllvcr Nervlon.
At the mouth of the river Ncrvion,
which flows into the Hay of Biscay between Portugalete and Las Arenas, a
curious engineering structure has been
erected within the last few years to
transport passengers, cattle and vehicles without interfering with the
river traffic. It consists, says tlie Manchester Guardian, of a couple of towers
200 feet high, one on each bank; from
these a bridge is suspended by chains
at a height sufficient to clear the masts
of vessels—that is, nearly 150 feet above
the water level of the spring tides.
This bridge curries a line of rails on
whloh a trolley is pulled to and fro
by an engine on the Las Arenas or
northern side. With it goes a car, hung
by steel cables, in which tlie passenger's
lake their seats. This ic not wound up
to the top. hut suns ut (lie level of
the quays. Thus the transit is effected
quickly and regularly, without the delay inseparable from a swing* bridge.
A similar "pout trnnsbordeur" is to he
•el up over tlie Seine near Rouen by
a French company. In general ap-
I'laraiicc it will resemble the Spanish one, and if equally successful will
probably lead fo the application of the
principle elsewhere. It seems odd that
ior such a simple and useful device,
engineers should have to go to Spain.
Volcanic. Islands.
Since the beginning cf Ihis century
no less than bZ volcanic islands have
risen out of the sea. Nineteen of that
number have since disappeared and ten
are now inhabited.   •
