There are ways dndiways of Increasing the flesh otf^the u&>k and 'covering
up the unsightly -collar'bonis,- always
the rnout persistent- of- offenders. A
simple method advocates the liberal
use of Icy water, dashing it Impetuously over the front antTXiack' tif tlie neck,
and then expanding the chest In long,
regular breathing. The skin Is finally
rubbed vigorously with the palms ot
the hands, carefully -smoothing the
throat under the cklp.imd behind the
ears, until theblttod tingles exuberantly. A second method for restoring ail
unsightly neck to sightliness combines
the usage of hot water, massage anil
olive oil. The skin is bathed ln water
aB hot as the ylet|m can bear It; then
It ls treated to a bourse In uncomfortable rubbing, after which the olive oil
ls applied plentifully, so as to iillow It
free access into the pores of tbe skin.

his head with the*fh!n pressed backward toward his neck. Imitation of
this movement straightens the head
and forces the chest upward an inch or
so, and while in the beginning-It Is

A Millionaire Heiress.

Mayflower, off the Isle of Wight, di-!

But his lips kepi muttering "Sixthly,"

One Wenkncss of Women.
It is becoming a noted fact that the
young women of to-day shpw a *de>
elded preference for men whose reputation ls notjif the best. Speaking about
this a few eveulrigS ago a college man
said:     ■     »   ' 1
"It Isn't niuch ,ot an Incentive for n
fellow to keep his (nornllty. up.to the
standard when he sees the most Ills'-*
reputable men of his best set simply
lionized by girls nnd their mothers.' 1
don't know why-,lt Is. Women have
tt mania sTojf'cultivating men whose
characters nre nnytlilug but good. The
shadier they are the more they appeal
to women. Can't understand it. There
were two men In my class last year,
the wildest, fastest fellows I knew,
but they were made more fuss over by
tbe mother-fund daughters of their acquaintance'than rfny of their well-behaved friends. These same mothers
and daughters knew any number of
bright, moral young men, but they Ignored thera every time In favor of the
ne'er-do-wells—were flattered to death
to receive the slightest attention from
charming young lady. Naturally, she
received a good education and ns a
consequence she possesses many accomplishments.
The Etiquette <>(' Introduction.,.
It is mortifying' to note how mnnj
persons pay little or uo heed lo whal
may be styled the etiquette of introduc
lions. To (ho lover of good form there
Is nothing that sets one's teeth on edge
on hearing un Introduction so worded
that a woman Is presented to a man,
or nn elderly woman to young one. At
n tea a matron who years before had
arrived ut the dignity of a grandmother wns piloted by her hostess to a
youug' girl of 20, uud they were made
known tb each other-In the well-meant
words "Mrs. Knight, I wnnt to present
you to my dear little friend, Mabel
Day. Mabel, dear, this Is Mrs.
Knight, of whom you have so often
heard me spenk."
If the ladles were amused by. the
speech, they were so well versed In
that knowledge of good form in which
their hostess was lacking that they
showed no consciousness of her error.
Another Woman Lawyer.
One more woman has stepped Into
the ranks of the legal profession und
Laporte, Ind., has the honor of being
her home. She is Miss Mollle L. Lorlg,
nud she hns just been admitted to the
bur.    She is a graduate of a Denver

law college aud had the distinction of
being the only woman iu tbe class. She
ls convinced that she will enjoy practicing her profession nnd for thnt reason undertook the hard work, against
the advice of some of bar friends who
advised a stage career. The woman la
20 years old and expects to spend the
next few years in the office of some
well-established lawyer of Laporte.
Naming the Hindu Baby.
A Hindu baby Is named when twelve
days old, and usually by the mother.
Sometimes the father wishes for another name than thut selected by the
mother; ln that case two lamps are
placed over the two names, and the
name over which the lamp burns
brightest Is the one given to the child
ONG after the speaker's
words had tiled away
the listening people
waited In hushed ex-
pectmioy, unwilling lo
believe that he had finished, and unable to de-
sccud, all at once, from
the heights to which
they bad beeu raised.
But the announcement
of the last hymn assured
them that the service
was almost over, and a
little later they begun to
file slowly out through lhe high, narrow doors into the damp Cornish air.
In almost total silence the crowd separated, with the unconsciousness of
surroundings which comes lo men

John Ordwny and his wife came
from the chapel among lho hist, and
walked arm In arm to the long, low
shed, whore ninny wagons wore wait
lug; both had boon strongly moved by
the evening's sermon, but in different
ways, indicative, perhaps, of their
widely differing temperaments.
Ordwuy helped his wife Into the
wagon, the horses struck Into a swift
trot, and the driver leaned forward to
draw the rug more closely about his
companion, peering up Into hcr fuee

you feel at all cold, little girl?"
She started nervously al hr*- voice.
and shook hcr head.
"I'm quite warm enough," she said
They moved swiftly past the scattered houses of the village anil out Into n
stretch of open country. Three or four
times the woman raised hor head as
though ubout to speak, but chocked
herself with an effort.
"1 have something to tell you, John,"
she snid nt last. "I—I am afraid I
ought to have told you'long ago."
Hcr lone was so serious that ho turned and looked at her with quick anxiety.
"Are ye sure ye ought?" he asked
gently.   "Maybe there ain't nuy need."
"Thoro Is a need." she answered, "I
have known ull along that It would be
better to speak out, but somehow I
never "elt that I could, until to-night."
She papSed as though to gather courage. "It's about myself and Willis,"
Bhe said. "You remember "
Ordwuy bent forward suddenly with
a warning shout to the horses, and the
wagon jolled heavily In a deep rut.
"That's me, nil over," he Haiti with
a chuckle. "I took special notice of
that hole so ns to skip It ou the way
home, and here I nm, drivln' right into
It again, like an old fool. That's what
conies of llstonin' to sermons ye can't
quite understand."
"Won't you listen to me, John?" his
wife asked pleadingly.
"Of course I will," he nnswered.
"Only my nerves bein' so wrought up,
I'm sort of afraid to have auy big
shock come on me sudden, ye know."
"You make It so hard for me," she
said. "And I am lu earnest. Oh, truly
1 nm in earnest."
Her voice trembled with the warning
of tears. Ordwuy put his arm around
hor and drew her closer to him protectively, ns a mother soothes a nervous,
sleepy child.
"I wasn't jokln'," he said. "I'm always glad to listen to ye; only I think
ye'd best wait till we get home. We're
'most there now."
The wagon swuug around a sharp
turn, and then, far up on the hill ahead
of* them the clear-cut outline of tbe
farm buildings showed against the
horizon. And the horses plodded on in
"Go ln by the fire," said John Ordwuy, when nt length they rattled Into
the farm-yard. "It'll take me some time
to fix things up." But when be came
back from tbe stable he found hcr
waiting, leaning against one of the
square posts of the porch aud looking
out across the darkness of the valley.
"I wanted to wait until we could go
lu together," she said. The long, low
kitchen was full of changing shadows,
which danced across the time-polished
floor and lost themselves in the corners
of the irregular coiling, when Ordwny
crossed to the huge fireplace uud piled
some sticks of soft wood on the glowing ashes.
Then, twisting himself out of his topcoat and bestowing It, together with
his cap, on a convenient table, he drag-
god from the chimney corner a great
old-fashioned chair and sunk back luxuriously iu Us capacious depths. His
wife had also removed her wraps, nnd
now took her seat at the oilier side of
lhe fireplace ou a low stool, drawn
back just within the wavering boundary of shadow. At length she spoke,
slowly and with evident effort nt calmness.
"i'ou must try to be  patient  with
me," she snid. "You'll be astonished,
I know, and I nm afraid you'll be angry—and I couldn't blame you—but 1
want you to wait till—till I've finished."
"Are ye quite sure ye'd better begin,
or hadn't ye bettor let it go till tomorrow?"
"No!" she snid quickly. "I've wanted
to speak—to speak so many times, aud
haven't dared to. I'll feel a thousand
times happier when I've told you, uo
matter what happens. Let me go on
"Maybe I kuow what " he began,
but chocked himself suddenly. "I'm
listoulif," be added,
She hesitated ns if to gain strength,
and he marked how the slender figure
quivered with the effiort of her hurried breathing.
"I hud promised to marry Willis he-
fore 1 knew you," she said unsteadily.
"We guarieled about some little thing
and each was too proud to speak first.
Finally, he went away without seeing
mo. You know how we hoard that he
died In Africa. I believed It—we nil
did—and I cried myself lo sleep night
after night, because I hadn't acted differently. As time wont on I began to
forgot little by little, and after a while
it all seemed like a sort of dream; then
you came Into my life, nnd taught me
to trust you nnd turn to you for help
in everything. And, In truth, I loved
you more than you could evor understand." Her voice trembled pitifully.
"You believe me, John'/" she asked.
"Say that you do believe me."
Ordwuy drew his hands across his
eyes with an Involuntary movement.
"I ain't never doubted it," be answered softly.
Shu gave a quick sigh of relief, and
lot her head sink again upou her breast
ns she spoke again.
"I was happy and contented for two
long years. It was like heaven; aud
you were happy, too, John?"
"Happy!" ho said. "Ah, yes; nobody'll
ever know how much.'1
"And thou little Dora was born," she
wont ou, "and somehow all our trouble
began right there, for It seemed ns
though hor baby hands look hold of our
hearts and pushed thorn apart, a llttlo
nt first, and then more and more. I actually thought thut you didn't caro
about her—I know It was wrong, but
I thought It—and I got to fooling
against you as I would against someone that was watching for a chance to
hurt my Utile one. Well, things got
worse and worse, nud when she died 1
almost believed you wore to blame In
sonic way—I didn't know how. Oh! It's
awful In think about, lull I couldn't
help feeling that way. Will you evor
forgive mo for It?"
"I never laid It up against ye," he
answered, **l reckoned It wns natural,
nnd I know ye wasn't well; so I tried
to forgot all about that part of my life,
and I dono It—almost."
She looked up nt him gratefully.
"You are trying to help me," she suid.
"Not many men would do that. The
rest of my story Is harder to tell, and
harder to listen lo. You remember
that Willis came back aud hunted ns
up. He ciiine at the worst time for nil
of us. I was set against yon, and half
wild about baby's death, and reckless
to everything, lie found that out, nud
kept pleading with ine and urging me
| to go away with him. Day after day,
when you were nt work, he used to
como to the house and talk to me—always iu the same strain. I ought lo
have sent him away; but—I didn't. Ills
sympathy was so ready that I didn't
see tlie purpose nor the falseness of
It. It wns as though some evil spirit
put tlie word lnlo his mouth, nnd 1
listened; God help mo, I listened.''
She started to her feot, and stood facing her husband, her arms raised to
her head lu a wild gesture.
"It wos no fault of mine that I did
not sin nguiiist you iu deed as I did lu
thought," she cried. "If It had not beeu
for some accident—I don't even know
what It was—I should not have been
here now. I went to meet hiin one
ulght. We were to drive to Oakley and
take the train for some place. 1 waited, I don't know how ninny hours, but
he didn't come; at last I crept home
and found you asleep. All night 1 sat
by the lire waiting for some word from

then I wus ready to go. In the morning when you were away a loiter came,

about It soon. 1 never heard from him
She paused and looked at him fear
fully, as though expecting a violent
outburst of anger; but ho said nothing,
nnd nt last Bhe spoke again, unable to
bear the silence.
"Won't you speak to me?" she cried,
tremulously. "Haven't you bt^cn listening? Have 1 done wrong to toll you?
Speak to me, for God's sake; I can't
bear It."
The words were lost In ji storm of
sobbing, and she threw herself down
ou her knees beside him, hiding hor
face with her hands on the arm of the

down at her through eyes that were
dimming. "Don't take on so^ Eunle."

stroked tlie bowed head with clumsy
tenderness. "Ye say ye never knowed

said.   "I could a told ye why."

exclamation.   "You?" she cried.

said. "It jest happened that way.

asked. "Surely ye ain't grlevln' ovor

but lu this case neither man was In

They couldn't got by because of the Ice \

The Ice wagon was full of Ice and the

from the men in the other wagon.
There wus no response.

The vociferating man grew angry.

ahead I'll take off one of your wheels."
The other man laughed. Tbe wheels

"I helped lay out the town In 1881,
and have boon there several times
since. Wo lirst named the place Bar*
risburg, but the people changed the
name after a year or two. I have found
the country full of disappointments,
and I don't want to point the picture
too bright. Enough has not beeu said
of the dark side.
"It ls no place for mon of weak constitution. The hardships to be encountered require the strongest hearts and
sinews, as well.
"I have seen nothing published ol
the foot that a large portion of the
country ls covered with a moss ami
vine which contains sharp thorns, like
porcupine quills, with saw edges,
These will penetrate leather boots, and
when once ln the flesh nothing hut a
knife will remove them. Those are
worse than the mosquito pest.
"Along tho sen coast Alaska presents
a grand and picturesque view for
miles in extent, front an ocean sleom*
er. It is a good idea to get acquainted
witli Alaska and enjoy its scenery. It
Is a grand country lo visit, and its
scenery surpasses any mountain scenery in lhe world. Travel on water can
be provided for ln comfort, and lie enjoyed without great risk or danger.
"Alaska ls n country on t-tlge. It ls
| so mountainous, Basins nvo mainly
tilled witli Ice. Tlie weather Is always
hard ill great extremes. When there Is
no ice there is moss and devil's club,
tlie latter n vine that winds about everything It c;\ii clutch, Persons walk-

atoiship. Ai to the qualifications ol
cither of the gentlemen there seems to
be question, and the only fault *.he
miner has totind with the appointments
ii the fact that the Mainland was not
l_iven the senatorship. From those
who are in a position to know it is
learned that from ihe time British Columbia pined the federation it has been
the custom that two of the live senators
should come from the Mainland. This
though not a law ol the land, seems to
have been a distinct agreement with the
people of the province In the lace of
this established precedent Sir Wilfr ed
Laurier, in order to heal wounds of a
defeated ascirant, disregards tbis
curtom. Thus the vast Mainland with
its ever incr asrng population is represented by one senator, while the city of

from the libi r tl ranks about the government legislating in favor of Victoria, in
order to catch the vote ot the coast, to

In the speech delivered by that gentleman in Grand Korks on the evening of
Oct. 30, he stated with regard to the railway votes given by him in the House at
the last session that he had voted against
the granting of both $4,000 a mile and a
land grant to a company proposing to
construct a railway into this District,
and in so doing, Mr. Graham Slid, "I
did so with 2tbe strongest endorsation
from the people of this District,"
At the same meeting when asked
what he would do if $4,000 a mile without a land grant proved tobeinsulli ient
lo induce railway promote*! to coins
in'o the district, Mr. Graham said he
would advocate provincial government
CO'istruction of the ml. Probably the
Honorable Member oonsi. ered tbat this
too would receive 'the strongest endorsation (rom the people of the district."
Now the District of East Y ile which
Mr. Graham represents doks not consist of the bunch of farmers around
Armstrong. Mr.Graham maybavetheir
"strongest endorsation" (although we
very much doubt it) for his extraordinary ideas about railway construction,
but the great mining center which lies
south of Okanogan l.andin? anl wh-eh is
being held back and starved for want of
a railway, does not endorse these views
nl all.
How many years would it take, let any
reasonable man ask himself, before wc
had a railway line if it depended upon
the Government to build it? Tbc question answer itself. The Government has
not got the monoy and years must elapse
in such a case. Mr. Graham is talking
(or the sake of talking, He knows, or
If he does not he knows nothing, tbat
Ihe Government could not construct
sucli a road (or years to come. Neither
the present Government nor a Government composed of Mr. Graham's friends.
Then as to tha subsidy. That $4,000
■ mile is pot sutli ient inducement is
evidenced by the fact that although that
amount has been voted, no one has been
induced by it yet to undertake the railway. Mr, Graham talks about $8,ooo
more from the Dominion Government
and says if that and the $4,000 is not
enough to induce construction, ihen the
provincial government should construct
it. Anyway he would not agree that the
$t°ao would be supplemented by a land
Whether »i3,ocio a mile would bu
liufficient to persuade capitalists to undertake construction is not the question,
So far, the Dominion Government has
pat (in spite of Mr. Graham's assertion)
given tbe $8,000spoken af by him. Ihe
only inducement so far offered is $4,000
and, although this is proved insufficient,
Mr, G'aham would draw the line there.
If it Is not enough, it is a pity, the road
must wait, but in any event no i.a.nh
liRANT, tbat is our present Member's
polioy, and tor such a policy the people
of tbis district will cordially vote that
Mr. G'»hatn Stay at home after June
As it this fatuous announcement of his
views was not enough, Mr. Graham in thu
tame speech falls foul ot Mr, Heinze,
Chiefly on the ground that "Mr. Heii.ae
WM closely identified with the Government." Well, why not? Mr. Heinze
W*uld not be Mr. Heinz: if he did not endeavor to stand we" with a Government
with which he was trying to do business.
Perhaps Mr. Graham thinks he should
have identified himself with the Opposition,
Tbe (act is Our Member is talking
about things he does nut understand.
Jn thif half of-^he gentleman's constituency Mr. Heime is considered one of
(he men to whose energy and command
pf capital is due a great deal 01 the pros.
penty of West Kootenay apd wo only
wish we bad him, or a few like him, in
the Boundary Creek district, It is to
men like Hcin-e and Corbin that we
lotsk for a railway and Mr. Graham is
out in his reckoning if ha thinks that we
object to Mr. Heinle because he is
(another statement of the M. P. P's
which we very much doubt) "closely
identified with the government." Mr.
Graham may as well understand that we
don't loo|c at "the government" through
bis spectacles, We want a railway and
We want it quick- If the government
Offer* inducement enough to gapttal to
get qi a railroad we will be grateful. If
* the government oppses a railway we will

Louis V. Cuppage Procuring Data lor
the Annual Appropriation.
Mr Louis V Cupp.ige, superintendent of roads and bridges of this district,
arrived In the city last Sunday evening
upon a tour of inspection ot the southern port 0 1 of his territory lor the purpose of learning the wants and needs of
this portion of the dis'rict, to enable him
to make his annuil estimate of the
amount necessary for roxds and btidges
for the ensuin-j yea',
Monday morning Mr. Cuppage made
a thorough inspection ol the road built
by the ciizens of Grand Foiks to Summit camp, and expressed himself as
being more than pleased with the manner lhe work had been done, under lhe
tliicient direction of Mr. J L Wiseman.
As a result he has given the committee
in charge af the matter to understand
that he will recommend a iberal appropriation from tbe government for
this road.
Mr. Cuppage also made a trip up the
North Fork as far as the Pathfinder
property, for the purpose of looking
over the route with a view of taking
some steps towards the extension of the
wagon road front the Volcanic property
to that of the P.ithtinder. After going
over the ground Mr. Cuppage was satisfied as to the necessity of the road and
perfected arrangements with the Pathfinder company whereby Jthey will construct the roal and the govornmoit is
to re-emburse them out of the first
money available.
In regard to the two proposed bridges
across the Kettle river, one at Johnson 's
ferry and one inside the incorporated
limits of Grand Forks whore Second
street crosses the river, Mr. Cuppage
stated that the government would appropriate $[,000 each for the construction of the bridges, provided that the
citizens of Grand Forks and the settlers
would donate the balance, As the necessary amount has already been guaranteed we may soon expect to see work
commenced ou both of the bridges.

What a Gi and Fork's Man Has
to Say About It.
Compares the .Cost of Provisions at
Skaguay and Grand Forks.
—Mild Winters,
Mr. Richard Defrease has received a
letter from Mr. Fred S, Baldie, from
Skaguay; Alaska, dated Nov. 9,1897.
It will be remembered that Mr. Baldie
left Qrand Forks in May last for Alaska.
He writes that he arrived on Nov. 4,
making the trip from Seattle by steamer
in seven days, including a sixteen hour
layover on account of a heavy fog. So
far there has been no snow there nearer
than a half a mile up the mountain, and
the thermometer ranges about 10 degrees above zero, although he says tbat
lie has been informed that in mid winter
it gets down to 12 and 14 degrees below
zero, and advises those who contemplate
coming to Alaska not to stop an hour on
tbe account of winter, He says provisions are cheaper, if anything, than in
Grand Forks. Bacon, 14 cents per
pound; flour, from $1.7$ to $2.00 a sack
of fifty pounds, and everything else
in about the same proportion; good
timothy bailed hay, $35 per ton; oats,
$1.75 a sack; lumber, $2$ per thousand;
potatoes, two cents a pound and milk
$o cents a gallon.
While Mr. Baldie does not advise
anyone to come to Alaska that is doing
fairly well, he says that if they contemplate making a move that he does not
think they can find a country tbat has
more possibilities. He says if a man
can arrive in Seattle with $30 in his
pocket he can make the trip alright.
The fare from Seattle, iB (25 steerage
and Ho cabin. Wood is selling at £8
a cord delivered, three ricks of 16 inch
wood being a cord. It sells at $1 5> to
f 2 a rick in the timber, and would bring
more but for the fact tbat there are
many men wintering there who did not
get their outfits over the mountains and
are cutting more or less wood to put in
the time until spring, whenthere will bc
a general rush for the mines. His advice is not to buy anything in Seattle as
about the only thing to be saved would
be freight, and that is a very small percentage. There is plenty of work to be
found at Sk?guay at wages ranging in
price from $2.50 a day and board yourself, to $5 00 a day and board. Any
person woo has the determination and
will, can easily make enough money, in
the neat two or three months to buy an
outfit himself for a years trip. But in
order to do it a man must not, when he
has earned five dollars, blow it.
In February, he says, that the snow
melts and packs a little, and once you
get your outfit over the summit, you can
load on one of tbe Yukon sleds six or
eight hundred pounds of grub—as it is
on snow and ice, some say they can
haul 1200 pounds easy, with the exception of a few places for a mile or so,
where it will be necessary to double up.
The Skagway trail would have been
alright tbis fall, he writes, if they had
not overdone the thing. Five hundred
horses would, with care in packing, bave
done good work, but there were over 3,000
bead put on the route, with many men
in charge whom never saw an animal
packed and as a result many horses
died the same day.
Men were paid from $5 to $8 a day
for packing and it was dificult to get
them at that price. Mr. Baldie has
erected a cabin at Skaguay and extends
an invitation to any delegation from
Grand Forks to make it their headquarters if'they should happen to come that

Mallon deposits aggregating (8110.44.
when they knew tbe bank was in an insolvent condition Nov, 21, 1894. Tbe
prsiaiinence of the men arrested caused
a profound sensation to fellow tbe arrest, and revived the story of the twice-

Th« Death of Mrs. Judge Spinks.
The friends oi Judge Spinks will be
pained to learn he has had the misfortune te loose bis wife, who died in Kamloops, from rheumatic fever Wednesday
ol last week. Mrs. Spinks' maiden name
was Coupland, and was a native of Lancashire, and came to this country over
twelve years ago. They resided in
Kamloops for a number of years where
the Judge practiced law, but soon after

Development  Work  on  the  Realto  and
Crown to be Commenced at Once.
Mrs. E. G. Dahl has recently sold a one-
half interest in the Kialto mineral claim
situated about two miles north east of
Grand Forks on Rogers creek, to Mr.
D. G. Mills, of St Louis, Mo , thi: con
sindraticn being $1,000 cash. The Railto
has a wonderfnl surface showing the
character of which is a white decomposed quartz, in which free gold is visible to tbe naked eye. One condition ot
the sale was that development work
should be commenced at once and Mr.
Mills bas just finished comfortable winter quarters, and has started on a 100
foot tunnel by which it is expected to
tap tbe ledge about 180 feet below the
surface. In order to successfully carry
on tbis work a wagon road is being
built to the property and it is expected
it will be completed by tbe first of December.
Mr. Mills bas also purchased form
Mrs. Dahl a half interest in the Crown
mineral claim, situated on Hardy mountain, about four miles from this city for
$1,000 cash. This claim joins the celebrated Golden Queeu property on the
west, from which Mr. Joseph Ward, the
owner, had an essay made tbat went
something over {2.300 in all values.
The ledge from which the ore was taken
from which this essay was made is easily
traced across the entire length of the
Crown. Iu order to fuily ascertain the
value of these properties, Messrs. Ward
and Mills will work in conjunction with
each other in the developmento fthe same
and are now building com.nodious winter quarters which, wnen completed,
active operations will be commenced.
With ihe remarkable showing to be
found on these properties some wonderful developments may be expected as
thc work progresses.
The Summit Camp Wagon Road.
Joseph L. Wiseman came down from
Summit camp last Wednesday a;*d
announced that the wagon road being
built between Grand Forks and that
camp had been completed, Mr. Wise
man having he honor of di.ving the first
team to the famous camp. The wagon
road, as has been formerly stated, is
built up Fisherman creek and is about
seven miles in length and cost in the
neighborhood of $1,000, of which sum
the residents of tbis section have raised
about half by subscription, and tbe balance, or a large portion of it will be met
by the Department of Public Works of
this Province.
Mr. Cuppage, superintendent of roads
and bridges for tbis section was here on
thy fore part of tbe week and examined
the road and pronounced it done in a
most thorough manner. Mr. Cuppage
is authority for the statement that he
will do all in his power to have his department supplement the am nint lacking to pay all indebtedness now due on
the miking 01 the wagon road to Summit camp.
Held Two Sessions.
The city council belli two meetings

the regular on Friday. At the special
meeting a bylaw establishing a lax rate
was under suspension of the rules was
read the first, second and third time and
ordered laid over the necessary 24 hours
before passage. At the regular session
after their routine business had been
disposed of, bylaw No's. 11 and 12 were

five to one, was appointed inspector of
the water works; and Fred Wollaston
was recommended for the vacancy in
the Board of Licensing Commission
caused by tho removal of Jas, A. Aikman from the city.
Robt. Wood, of Greenwood, and
several well known business men of this
section have arranged a syndicate with
|53,ooo capital for the purpose of establishing a large mill on the North Fork of
Kettle rrver. Timber limits have been
secured back up the North Fork and
Christina Lake. In order that work can
be commenced at an early day as pos
sible, a portable mill has been ordered
and is exprcted to arrive shortly, when
active operations will be commenced.
John Keough, accompanied by his son,
thc original owners of tbe famous B. C.
mineral clirin, in Summit camp, arrived
from Colville last Tuesday, and left
Wednesday noon for Greenwood to receive the lirst payment of $60,000 bond
recently secured on the 11. C. by Mr.
Hair son, of Greenwood, which is now
due. Mr. Iveou*»h returned yesierd.ry
and reports that the first payment was
made promptly on lime.
Asocial dance will be given Thu.s-
dny evening, Nov. 25th, at Vicioria hall
for tbe purpose of raising funds to help
raise the indebtedness incurred by the
construction of the Summit wagon road.
Tbe price of admission has been placed

is expected to be present and assist the
worthy cause.

D vided into  Three Distinct
No Residence Qualification Nece.sary
Except in the Cases of Householders.
The municipal elections arc approaching so rapidly that the question who haa
and who has not a vet: is a leading topic
of conversalion in town. Last week we
published the portion of the municipal
election act dealing with the subject, by
which it appears lhat only those who
had been resident in the municipalty a
\ear prior to the date ol the closing of
the voters' list would bc entitled to vote.
Owing to a large number of rate pay
ers who would be deprived of a vote if
this were the case, and in order to put
all doubt to rest upon the question, a
Miner represented interviewed Solici
tor Cayley on the subject and we are
happy to state tbat that gentleman's interpretation of the law is to the effect
that a year's resident is not necessary except in the single case of ratepayers
whose only qualification is that they are
"No residence at all is necessary, as I
understand it," said Mr. Cayley "in some
of tbe cases provided for. It was necessary in 1896 but in 1897 the law was
changed. There are three classes of ratepayers who are entitled to vote under
the 1897 law. First, are the assessed
owners of lands or improvements or as-
ssesed occupiers of lands situate wi'hin
the municipality. There is no residen
tial qualification here for assessed owners, and non-residents who own land in
the city can therefore vole.
"Second, are residents who carry on
business and hold trade licenses
in the city of the annual value of $5.00.
According to this it would seem that a
man who cime in last week, toik up his
residence here and p iid $5.00 for and
obtained a trade license and is carrying
on business as such trader would have
a vote and I -ee nothing to prevent bim
Tbeio is no time qualification for this
class of voters.
" The third case is that of the house
ho'uer within the mun-cipality. The
householder if lhat is the only qualification, cannot vote unless he has been u
householder within the municipal limits
for cne year prior to the first of No
vember last. Tbis restriction is introduced in the form of declaration which
the householder has to make before his
name can be put on the voters' list
Here is the form: "I do solemnly declare lhat I am a British sulject and ol
the full sge of 21 years, lhat 1 have been
a  householder within    the   municipal
limits of the municipalty of for the
12 months immediately preceding the
first day of November, 1897, and that
the dwelling or dwellings occupied by
me during that time is or are situate and
"Pethaps a good deal of the doubt
which has arisen in connection with tbe
matter is due to the unfortunate word
ipg of the Act. Tlie Act reads: 'No person shall be entitled to vote under a
householders qualification, nor shall bis
or her name be included in the annuil
voters' list of a municipality unless he
or she shall on or before the 1st day of
Dycmber mike the declaration I have
just quoted. Oue might think at first
sight that these words meant that no person at all could get on the voters' list
who did not make the declaration refer-
ed to. A glance however at the wording of the declaration shows, when read
with the rest of the Act, that this is not
the case aud that the declaration is
meant to be made only by those who
claim to vote as householder and do not
come within the first two classes of
voters. Otherwise there would be no
use in having the first tvo classes.
"There are some other qualifications
of course applicable toa'l these classes,
such as being a British subject of 21
years of age and having yourta.es paid,
but on these points the Act is clear
If Mr. Cayley is right, and we have
no doubt be ii, the voters' list will be
considerably larger than we had reason

nl.li> Putnpi ao<I Tanks.
A recent Improvement in sprinkling
wagons buls fair lo revolutionize road
and street sprinkling in the country
where there is no water system to sup-
lily water fiom hydrants. Heretofore
it has been tlio t1 us torn to erect pump*
ing plants, or to pipe water from distant points to stations (.long tlJeVroad at
such distances thai tlie lond at ripe of
these stations would last until the
wagon reached tlie next station on its
trip. This plan makes necessary Lhe
expense of pipiug, tanks, we-lls, horse
powers, etc., and lias always been a
very considerable item of expense, ami
more or less of an obstacle to having
roads well watered.
The improvement consists in attaching a gasoline engine and .centrifugal
pump on a platform at the'rear of - tlve
sprinkling wagon so that water can be
taken from any convenient source. A
suction hose with foot valve is ajtnohed
to tlie pump which can be loivered into
a tank, ereek, watering trough, or np)
water source. The wagou driver men
starts the engine, and in from six to
ten minutes his wagon is fil-led.

wave In that memorable ycai* 1801,
ami I was caught
in the current, though af college, and
with nearly all my class enlisted among
Ihe first volunteers. My health not being very robust, instead of receiving orders for field service, l was commissioned 10 fill a place in a disbursement
One day I was summoned into the
presence of ray commanding officer and
lob! I was to accompany Oapt. McKcy
(we will call hlini to a certain city for
money (o pay the troops. Tlio sum
wns $100,000. We were given particular direct ions as lo out- going and coming. The distance was sir great we
were obliged to stay over nigiil on the
route. A large cily was selected nnd
we were advised as lo the hotel.
When we reached our destination
Capt. McKay produced an old black
bag for our precious burden. It was
not un ordinary old wornottt bag—such
a one as an ollicer might havo used until the gloss was gone and the edges
were while. There wns 110 air of ancient respectability about it. Since it
was new much time must have elapsed,
and heavy wear must have been its
portion; judging from the patches
which were not of the same kind of
shiny black leather as the primitive
The Captain carried Ihe bag and 1
watched llie Captain. When Ihe numbers traveling admitted of it, I took a
seat Just behind hiin; otherwise we sat
1 rather enjoyed hearing (ho comments of our fellow* travelers on llie
Captain and his bag. One young lady
said 10 hcr companion: "If that nice-
looking captain has a wife she ought
to be ashamed of herself for allowing
her husband to carry such a furious
looking old bag!"
A couple of lads returning from
school look (he sent vacated by the ladies, and after they were settled ihey
commenced to look about them, and
one said to the other: "What's thut
feller's rank';"
"Which one?" asked Jils companion.
"The one wilh the bag?" After studying some time he replied, "Brevet colonel, I believe."
"Brevet jack-a-napes!" exclaimed the
first boy. "I believe he's a low-downer,
something like an 'orderly' or an 'ad-
jutntit.' "
"No, slr-ree, sir; he's a 'brevet' of
some kind. Didn't we have the explanation of 'brevet' the other day In class
as a commission which entitles an ollicer to rank above his pay? Now tliat
feller ranks above his pay, which accounts for his uniform's being first-
class, for Uncle Sam settles the bills.
But his pay does not allow him lo have
other nice things—like bags and
Aside froni remarks, we met with no
adventure, and reached the hotel where
wo were to spend the night about !> In
the evening. We had determined 10
avoid exciting remarks by making unnecessary requirements about our
room, so simply asking for n room In
tlie quiet part of (he hotel where we
could sleep In the morning, we were
shown to one of a suite. We realized
we had made a mistake lu Ihis particular -when we were alone, and commenced It) make plans for barricading,
as tie room bad three doors to be
looked after.
"Now what will we do to (he windows?" asked fcapt. McKay, as we
stood In our shirt sleeves, all heated
from our exertions of moving a heavy
mahogany bedstead without rollers Iii
front of one door, a marble-topped
wnshstnnd In front of another nnd 11
marble-topped burenu (also without
casters) In front of the third.
I considered myself something of a
genius about a house, so I replied cheerfully: "I think I can fix the windows
all right."
I took the chairs and the towel rack,
some empty pasteboard boxes found In
the closet aud a bamboo whatnot and
erected a pyramid between the windows. My idea was to construct an
easily moved something so that anyone trying to enter by the window
would give premonitory symptoms by
a grand overthrow. The pyramid uot
being high enough, I bethought 1111) of
the window shades. An tinfortiniue
thought, for I lamed my thumb nnd
skinned several lingers trying lo get
the shades down. But nt length we
stood ln admiring silence before a pyramid that at Its base took ln both windows and at its summit, by the aid of
■lhe rolled up shades placed like au "A"
to form an apex, reached nearly to the
top of the room. We felt safe and retired for the night.
I wns awakened by thinking a de
tachment of artillery and nn avalanche
from the Mntterhorn were attempting
to enter our windows at the Bame time.
I •rave a leap from the bed to ascertain
what waf^he matter, when I found
myself all enveloped In window shades
IIhey having selected that pleasing
moment to unwind after having rapped
me awake.
Capt. .McKay assured ine that I made
use of various strong expressions as I
struggled to free myself. After the
closest scrutiny, we could discover no
trace of any attempt having been made
lo enter our room by the windows, but
sundry movings about overhead led us
to conclude our pyramid had received
Ils overthrow from jars from that quarter.
"Morn, waked by the circling hours,
with rosy hand," had scarcely unbarred
lhe gates of light when I felt something
more vigorous than a "rosy hand" hold
of my shoulder, and opening my eyes
I saw the Captain's face pale and distracted in front of mine and heard hiin
say in a voice trembling with emotion:
"The bag Is gone!"
"It cannot be!" I cried, springing up
in a frenzy of fear. But dlligeir search
could not reveal Its hiding place, There
stood lhe heavy mahogany bed before
one door, Ihe wnslistand and bureau before the other two, undisturbed! 'The
dust on the window lee pes and sash
seemed to prove lhat no one, not even
the chambermaid, had Interfered with
tliein for sumo limo.
"Let us get dressed and notify Iho
authorities of our loss," cried Ibe Captain lu a hoarse whisper.
Both of us started lo obey Ibis suggestion and made such speed as we
could, considering our oft-repeated tendencies lo slop and search In probable
and Improbable nooks for the lost. I
saw Capt. .McKay pulling out (he drawer iu the bamboo whatnot, large enough
lo hold a writing pail with a few pencils; while I Hew wllh 11 boot hall-pulled
ou io search the lop shelf in Hie closet.
"I have looked (here six times!" the
Captain called out. "I shall be lot-ever
disgraced." he added with a groan.
"And oui* brave boys, what will they
do for their pay!" I said feebly—my Imbecility showing Itself iu my alluding
lo such n painful view of Hie subject
when the Captain was so overcome.
"Do you think I shall allow Ihem to
lose a cent?" he asked, almost fiercely.
**.\'o, sir! 1 have $1,000 iu the hank and
I'll use every bit of my pay nnd forfeit
my pension to "
Rap-a-tap—tap, came a summons to
open Hie door, hol'iuv whicli the heavy
mahogany bed stood as au Impenetrable fortification. I, with bool number
one 011 ami number two half on, and the
Captain, with one arm In bis vest, hastened lo remove the obstruct Ion with
as little noise as possible, feeling we
would rather not have il known how
much we had barricaded. Scleral more
raps came before we were ready, but
at length we opened Hie door and iu the
iliniuess of a dark morning we saw a
hall boy with a jug of water in one
I look lhe waler, while tlie Captain
said in an excited lone: "Hoy, run
(lown quickly and tell the hotel clerk
lo come up here! Why don'l you start ?*'
he asked, Impatiently.
"Yes, I'm going, mister, but fust let
me ax ye If Ihis here is yourn?" At
lhat he held lqi his other hand and
there we beheld the old. shabby, hut Inestimably precious bag!
The Captain nearly swooned with
joy, while I had presence of mind 10
tell the boy not lo send up Ibe clerk
and lo give hiin a sum of money that
made him whistle all the wny down the
hall.. The boy explained that he picked
up the bag just outside our door. Then
wo remembered when the lock of (lie
door had proved refractory, the Captain liad set it there, but neither of us
had noticed that !t was not picked up
again. Blessed be shabblness! we
agreed, If It could accomplish Ihe remarkable font of preserving the sura
of $1(10,(100 In the hallway of a hotel so
many hours.
When Ihe Captain and I had sttfli-
clently recovered from falling on each
other's necks and weeping tours of joy
over the recovery of our treasure, the
Cnptnln said: "I can trust you not to
tell this, I am sure, for if you do, and it

Oil to Lav Dust.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company,
It Is stilted, is about to make the experiment of sprinkling a specially prepared oil on its line between Lanliams
and Deauewood, on the Baltimore and
Potomac Division, near Washington, as
a means of reducing Hie dust nuisance.
The oil Is distributed along the roadbed
by means of a specially constructed
car. The "spreader" is a comparatively
simple contrivance, and, with gum hose
and pipes. Is connected to an ordinary
oil tank car filled with the oil. The
spreading of the oil over the roadbed Is
accomplished at the rate of ubout four
miles an hour. Thc spreader ls so constructed Hint not a particle of the oil
falls 011 the falls. This, of course, Is a
necessary precaution, since It would be
Impossible for a locomotive to haul its

Between 4,11110 and 5,000 gallons of oil
are required for each mile of double
track, and It Is said (hat one application will allay the dust and dirt for a
year. Should the experiment prove satisfactory, It Is probable the entire line
between Washington and New York
will be sprinkled.

One  of  the   richest   discoveries   ever
made in   the  Pend  d'Oreille  district is
said to have been that made by three
prospectors   last   spring.     About   three
years ago I'. Welch, Howard Shipley and
Al Small, all old-time mining men, found
I some line copper float while on a hunting
' expedition   near   tlie   mouth  of Clark's
j Fork river.     'Tlie ore was so rich that
I much excitement was caused, and many
! prospering    parties    endeavored to find
! the source of the float, but without sue-
' cess.   The three miners  went about  it
: systematically, organized a company and
began lo thoroughly prospect the region.
Several  thousand dollars were spent iu
I open cuts and other work, but not until
! this   season   was  their  work  rewarded,
when they struck the lead and located
three    claims- the    I'aystone,    Lookout
and .lane Hug.    Development work has
been started on a largo scale.   The vein
of the I'aystone wns crosscut on lhe surface for 40 feel, to a depth of 20 feet, and
strongly   mineralized   with   copper   and
carrying some gold.      The owners nre
driving a  tunnel to cut the vein at a
depth of 100 feet, and work will be carried on all winter.     Cabins, blacksmith
shop and other buildings have been erected, and the company has the necessary
funds to keep the work moving.      Tlie
formation is slate and quartzite.   On the
Julie Hug they have a four-foot vein of
solid ore carrying large quantities of purple copper and assaying $18 in gold clear
across the ledge.
Lend Miners nmi Smelter Men.
Qreat interest is manifested at Lead*
ville, Colo., in tlie reported formation of a
smelter trust to regulate the price of
smelting ores, etc. One of the largest
mine managers of the district says:
"The object of this smelter meeting is
known to the mine owners and mine managers, and as a result there is a prospect
of a bitter light with the smelters on one
side and the mine managers and mine
owners on tlie other. This fight was
virtually started at Leadville last Wednesday night at a meeting of mine owners and mine managers of the camp.
They thoroughly discussed the question
and decided io organize, an association to
protect their own interests against tlie
smelters intended to do, one of the mine
managers slated that ho had been requested by a smelter to enter in a contract for the sale of his ore before tlie
trust went into eect. At this meeting in
Leadville we decided that a circular
should be gotten up to be sent to all
of the mine owners of tlie west. This
circular sets forth the objects of the association, and also calls for suggestions as
to the timo for holding a meeting of all
the mine owners. The mine managers
insist that instead of allowing tlie smelters to regulate the price, they ought to
do it themselves. They also object to the
smelter getting the benefit of Ihe. low-
rates and the rebates from the railroads,
whieh it was claimed that they are now
receiving. There is certainly a bitter
fight in sight."
Center Stnr Wins.
Justice Walkem, nt Kelson, B. C, has
rendered a decision in lho ease of the
Center Star vs. the Iron Mask, from Rossland, continuing the injunction against
the Iron Mask and releasing all obligation
against the Center Star. Justice Walkem delivered the judgment in the presence of both tho Center Star and Iron
Mask mines, iu whicli he extended the
injunction issued by Justice Korin restraining the Iron Mask from further
sinking upon tlie tunnel constructed by
the Center Star. Justice Walkem also
released the Center Star from tho injunction in Forin's order to the effect tliat
they should not proceed further in their
own ground or run and sink in defendant's ground. He said the evidence was
all in favor of the Center Star. He would
not be justified in discrediting in any degree the statements of Joyce or Dun-ant
in behalf of plaintiff. Costs are to abide
the event of action. Mr. Bodwell moved
for an order asking liis honor to appoint
a time for any full court to hear the appeal. November 22 was set The decision is lengthy and involves many legal
points. .Iustice Walkem held that tlie
apex meant what the statutes described,
namely, a top, and not its highest point,
nor its mathematical pinnacle.
The   World's   lllcliist   Mine.
The richest gold mine in the world, according to the New* Y'ork Tribune, is located under the thriving town  of Ilal-
larat. Victoria, Australia.   The town has
about 25,000    Inhabitants, nearly all of
whom nre employed in the mine.   Thero
i are more than 100 miles of tunnels under
the city, some of thorn being al a depth
j of 2000 feet.   The entrance to the mine,
j which is controlled and is known as the
j Band] Barton and Albion Councils, is outside the city.    The region around llalla*
I rat has been over several times by min-
I ers.   It was formerly covered by a dense
J forest, but die trees have been chopped
down, ami lhe mark of the miner's shove]
and pick is visible on all sides.   Not one
of Ihese workers struck pay dirt and the
work wns all done in vain.   The rock in
which Hie gold is found beneath Jiallarat
is not so rich in the yellow metal.    It
yields but half an ounce of standard gold
to the Ion, and yet the Hand, Barton and
Albion mine has yielded more than $150,-
000,000 of gold since it was opened, 30
years ago,   'The work is done, so systematically   and   so   thoroughly that it is
enormously profitable in spite of tlie low
grade of the ore.   Tlie supply of paying
quartz seems   practically    inexhaustible
and as the vein is extensive, being spread
over much territory, tlie mine bids fail-
to last, for centuries.
The Evening; Stnr.
It is probable that a shipment of ore
from the Evening Star mine, in the Rossland district, will bo mado within the
next, fortnight. There is considerable ore
of shipping grade on the dump, and the
management has not decided just how
much it will have treated at present, but
25 tons and probably more will bc sent.
The assays from the dump indicate that
good returns may be expected. A crosscut has been started from the end of the
upper level to catch the shaft, 47 feet
away. The crosscut, is now in nearly 15
feet, 5 feet of Whicli is in ore. It is now
iippariinl that the shaft toward which th*
present workings are being directed is on
u separate vein from the ledge in whicli
the Upper drift was being run.

Sitka Claim.
James Hamilton, one of the owners of
the Sitka claim five miles west of Grand
Korks, 11. C, reports that the shaft is in
solid ore thnt assays as high as $1700
in gold, silver and copper. A quantity of
rich ore is sacked ready for shipment,
but as the freighters are otherwise engaged it will probably be some time he-
fore the sacks can be hauled (o Marcus.
Mr. Hamilton says Hie shaft will be sunk
to a deplh of 100 feet and then a 400-foot
tunnel will be run to crosscut the lead.
The   IlomeMtuke.
The Homestakc Mining Company of
South Dakota reports that for the year
ended May .'11, 305,530 tons of ore were
milled. The total product was 110,851
ounces of bullion, tlie gross value of
which was $1,840,780 in gold and $13,112
in silver, a total of $1,853,780. Deducting
bullion charges, $10,285, there was left
a net return of $1,843,501. To this is to
lie added $45,038, the net proceeds of concentrates, making a total of $1,880,430.
The average return obtained per ton of
ore was $4.78.

Idaho is the fifth state iu tlie. LTnion in

California, far-famed for its mineral
