"the brand Jury in the recent crlm*
inal case tried in Golden mado certatrf
recoirtmendationS which, if carried out
hy the --Government, will ba of great
benefit to the district of North East
Kootenay. The Deputy Attoroey-
General of the Province wa*�� present
on that occasion and heard these
retommendationS, and, Its tbey all
refer particularly to hii department,
the Government tfnnnot notr plead
ignorance. There nre other matters
which should rterive the immediate'
attention of the Government, notably
the appolhhnent of a collector of voters
and ti registrar of births, marriagnf
Ami deaths. The British Columbia
Gazette, in a recent issue, contains %
notice calling for a Court of Revision.
to bo field in Goltlen on the fith day of
November last. On that date, however, no court was hold, for the simpW
reason tha* no person had been appointed. The fa6t that no collector of
votes being appointed may, in thrf
event of an election heing held at an
early date, deprive many of our citizens of their franchise. This is rt
right that ricf citizen should Ipse, and,
as legislation has been paSH*!'a ir/t'king'
ft imperative that certain conditions
should he complied with, particular!/
the filling ttp of a certain form prescribed hy .the statute, the Govern-'
ment should Set the example of complying with the requirements of that
statute in ih entirety, and not permit
matters to remain in such shape tha��
it is nfi'xt to tnrtpbsalble for anyone irf
this district not already on the list ttf
havo liia.nairo placed upon it.
Ti!e EttA do&s not desite to b& considered as a fault-finder, biit at the"
same time when such unbailed-foif
neglect as this occurs it is the duty
not only of this paper bnt of every
tftiiJen io endeavor (o have the omission remedied; arid, further, if tflff
Government, had used a little more
printer's intt in advertising, the people'
of this district wtfuid no doubt have
been awakened to the fact Hint there
was such a court being' held. To*
reinedy this as much as pqfisihfe thtf
columns of The Eka will be open to*
��� be public generally, and any Suggestion that may be offAfSd /ofthe welfarrf
of o��r district will be gladly receive*
and published.
Again, a registrar of births, rnafrii-
.'tres and dunths should be appointed.
Why should so important a district as1
this require to go to Revelstoke. iri
West Kootenay, to got such rih tfffielalr*'
Surely this is not as it shrinlrl be, and
the oversight should be attended to.
Another impr-ftant omission which*
The EttA would like ttreall aifertiorf
to is the fact of the chattel mortgage
registration district being in Hevelstoke instead of Golden. -this cause*
serious incdnvfenieuce and unnecessary,
expense to one and all the residents of
this district, and it is hoped that the
views herein expressed may have the'
effect of assisting orir maml.fi1, Mr, W.
C. Wells, in secur'ng for this district
the rights and privileges to which wtf
are justly entitled.

Klokfontein, Nov. 24.���There, were a
few rifle shots early today from the
direction of Wright's ffsrm, bnt tbis
was regarded as merely oue of the numerous Boer tricks to draw our men out
by inducing us to believe thut the relieving forces are drawing ueur. This
afternoon the Boers blew up two large
culverts near the rifle butts on tiie railway line toward Spyfontein. The news
of the proximity of the relieving forces
greatly cheered the garrison and the
inhabitants. A few Boers were teen
today, but it is believed the enemy is
composed of ouly small bauds around
Kimberley, in lots of fifty or so, the
greater part having gone to Spytfon-
tein, where filing is believed to have
beeu heard abont noon.
From Kaffir sources came a report

sort of politicians," I nt, he added, he
hnd found compensation iu the generous appreciation of the majority of his
countrymen. Continuing, Mr. Chamberlain said he was deeply gratified
that the foreign relations of Great Britain were eo satisfactory, aud asserted
tbe country owed a debt of gratitude to
Lord Salisbury for the great improvement iu Great Britain's position. It
was esp.'cially gratifying, he pointed
out, to note tbe friendly relatious existing between the Anglo-Saxon branches,
Biying Ihe understanding between tho
United States ajid Great Biituiu was
a guarantee of peace. It was of- the
utmost importance, Mr. Chamberlain
further remarked, tbat Great Britain

A New Steamship.
A cable was receied tbis morning by
Messrs. Elder, Dempster & Co., advising them of the successful launching of
their new twin-screw steamer Lake
Erie, which is building at the famous
shipbuilding yards of Messrs Barclay,
Curie & Co., of Glasgow. This is the
first of three magnificent twin-screw
passenger steamers of 10,000 tons that
Messrs. Elder, Dempster &Co., have
contracted for.'
These steamers will be placed on the
Liverpool mail service next season between Montreal and Liverpool and will
form part of the weekly Beaver lino
royal mail service.
Tbe Lake Erie is being fitted to carry
between 125 and 150 first cabin passengers, about 80 second cabin, and 800
steerage. Tho fi st and second oabin
passenger accommodation is all on the
spar deok amidships, the saloon, smoking room<>, eto., are on what is called
the bridge deck. Sbe will be olectrio
lighted and fitt d with tbe most modern conveniences for the coin tort of all
classes of passengers and a very spacious promenade deck is also being ar*
As this steamer will be nearly sixty
feet beam aud provided with bilge
keels her steadiness at sea will be a pro*
miuent feature iu ber construction as a
favorite typo of passenger steamer. *"
She is ex ected to make her first voyage to Halifax and St. John, eftrly in
March, and there will be no question,
but that thin and tbe other stunners
bnilding, will secure a lar^e share of
tbe passenger traffic, wbioh is sure to
take plaoe next i-ummer seatou.

London, Nov. 80,���Twelve hours' reflection upon Lord Methnen's brief dispatob hss only served to increase public anility and suspense. All kinds of
speculation is indulged In. In the absence of any Indication as to whether
the B ers occuplrd the north or south
bank of Modder river, the best opinion
Inclines to Ihe hitter theory, and it Is
pointed oat that Ihe British must bave
been ult.rly oiliaustiit if they conld
not follow np tbe retiring Boers and
crushed thea ss the enemy orowded
o.er tbe bridge, their compulsory line
of retreat.
The Morning Post's military cone*
spouileut, who hss usually shown great
ability, suggests that the Boers ore still
on the south side of tlio river, and that
the bridge is in their hands. He points
ont "the panger to the small British
forces, which crossed ou pontoons."
The importance attached to this pon-
tooniug Deration, is proved by Ihe faot
that General Pole-Oarew, one of the
only two brigadier-generals, was selected lo Superintend it. Se word has
since arrived cither from L -rd Methuen
or from Natal [Speculation, therefore,
is nrelesB. It is . believed that Lord
Methuen will be Instantly reinforced
tram Oape Town by two Battalions of
infan ry, a detachment of oavaliy, and
a battery of artillery,
Ool. Albreoht, who is directing the
work ol the Boers in opposing Lord
Methuen, wss originally ou officer lu
Ihe Austrian arxy. He entered the
Free State army and soon brought its
artillery to a higb state of efficiency.
He is known as au able aitillerist and
slrat?gist. Some surprise Is expressed
at the fact that Lord Methnen's troops
had to light withont fo.d or water, lt
seems, however, that he is not using
tiuui-il rations. He seises and pays for
fresh fo d. Usually, he begins n march
about 11 o'clock in the morning, after a
breakfast of cocoa. Then he does his
flahling or marching, and afterwards
pitches his camn near the best water,
dining when his transports srr.ves.
The a temcous are given over to resting. Ouly bare ueceg-ltlee are allowed.
As oue correspondent describes it, the
British are fighting "an omnipriseut,
but almost Invisible foe."
Unstinted admiration is every when
expressed for tho splendid work ot Lord
Methnen's column. Wilh a force really Inadequate, he has marched fifty-
tbree miles, aud fought three battles
within seven days. While no credence
is given to tbe rumor that Ladysmith
has fallen, the scare nerves to impress
tha publio with the danger of what Is
still within the louuds ot possibility.
Snoh a misfortune would probably
produce a formidable revolt among the
Oape Dutch. The Daily News says:
"Whatever comes we most brace our
nerves to meet lt. Certainly today it
looks as II we hnd before os a very
stern aud earnest struggle, before we
see onr way dear lo final vlot ry."
Oape Town, Nov. 28.���Gen. Methuen

lt>K fatal results la surprising nnd often
umiocountahle, while at other tlraea current* less powerful In awry way, for aome
reason are often fatal.
- The alternating current of great amperage, high voMage and low frequency li
the current that caused the greatest num-
ter of accidental deaths, aa well as the
Biirrent that is used in the state of .New
York for the purpose of executing criminals. The continuous current, sirgh as Is
used In our Incandescent street lighting,
while not harmless when oloae olroulted
through the body, doe* not offer tbe same
degree of danger as the oro light, or alternating current.
Still, electricity, like the old woman'!
gun, without lock, stook or barrel, Ii usually found to bo dangerous. If so, Wbat
arc we to do In oase of a Kldentr Is the paramount question.   First of all, keep cool.
00 not lose your head, and, with tho follow lug rules, do what you can;
l)o not plaoe yourself In tbe circuit to

more victim to the result.
Under no consideration catch bold of the
wire unless you are positively certain that
you are thoroughly Insulated by rubber
boots or gloves, or both. A large, dry silk
handkerchief or dry cloth Is the next best
thing, and If yonr own coat Is perfectly
dry, place tbnt on tbo ground to step on,
Never under any oircu mute noes, when you
are removing a person from a live wire,
allow his body to letive tho earth. In otber
words, do not lift bim. When the victim
has been -released from tho wire, prooeed at
onco to artificial respiration, being sure
tbat tbo clothing is well loosened about

''A great friend of mine was for a considerable time tb�� medical superintendent
of a lunatic asylum near Glasgow.
"Ont night In making hi* customary
rounds he had occasion to visit the, patients In tbt kitchen, wbo were preparing
the dinner. There wert eeven of tbem,
all big, sturdy fellows, who were believed
to be harmless. The keeper only looked
In upon them now and again, feeling that
hit constant presence was unnecessary.
"The doctor unlocked the Iron barred
door of tht kitchen and want In among
tbt lunatlci.
"There wert flvt largt boilers containing scalding water ready for making tbt
day'e dinner for the patients.
*k)ne of the lunatics pointed at tbe boll-
era full of hot water and, laying hie baud
upon the doctor's shoulder, oold, 'Doctor,
you'll wake a fine pot ot broth,' and tht
wordi had no sooner been uttered than

He Still Retain* Hia Nearro Love For
the Faataatle.
One who makes a trip up the river and
watches the unties of the negroes and Iiu-
tens to their weird songs und tales will
not agree witb the iconoclast who suys
thut all the beauties nnd the picturesque
feature* have faded out of tbe steambont
man's life. As n line of negroes goes up
the'hlll under tbo glare of tbe searchlight
with their peculiar swinging trend and
slug tbe music, which seems somehow to
be an essential part of the action, the
slgbt'is one which bus a strange wildness
about It nud a fascination too. The negro Is not the same its he was before the
war. Conditions have changed too much
tor that. But he has retained bis love
for tbe fantastic and most of those barbaric customs wbich civilization seems
unable to eradicate from tbe African
The first mate has undergone a marked
metamorphosis, ond to his change Is due
some portion of the new features in tbe
deckhand's character. Time wns when
the first mate had a vocabulary which
would make an St-dinary sailor's parrot
die for shame. He had tbis vocabulary,
and the negroes held the same opinion us
the one wbo answered wben nsked If he
did not object to the mate's abuse: "No,
boss; dat's wbut he's paid for. He's got
ter make out he's doin sotuethln, an It
don't do us no harm/' Now the deckhands actually object to being sworn at
wben tbe oaths become too vigorous.
The first peculiarity which strikes tbe
observer about the deckhand Is his walk.
He has climbed up tbe steep river's embankment when there was mud all over
It, and he bas come down tbat same slide
with a heavy weight upon his back. He
bas adopted a step which prevents hlra
from slipping, and tbis gives him a peculiar shuffling step unlike auy movement
seen elsewhere. He combines witb tbis a
hoisting of tbe shoulders and a peculiar
turn of tbe head acquired from turning
his face to*let a sack rest upon bis shoulder. These three traits are distinctive
and give the deckhand a strange appearance upon tbe levee or anywhere off a
boat or away from tbe river.
As be works going up tbe Inclines or
along the gaugplauk, precariously restlug
upon a levee's crest, be bus a rhythmic
sort of chant which fits in witb bis music.
Always tbe same class of songs are sung.
Usually there are uo words, but some
leader chants and tbe others voice the
chorus ns tbey bend to their tasks.
There are sack songs and barrel songs
and music for the cotton bale and the ordinary package. The music varies with
tbe task, as the movement of the negro's
body varies.
The crap game can be seen in its fnll
glory only when the deckhand plays it
upon the boat's deck. Prom the foot nf
President's island to tbe city no stops
are made, and a like condition prevails
In regurd to boats from the upper river.
This is called'the crap limit. The negroes
are paid off before tbey reach the city
aud usually at the last stop before the
city. As soon as the pay Is received the
negroes gather and begin to shoot craps,
nnd the cries for "Big Dick" and "Little
Joe" nnd "Ada" arc heard until the bout
has landed. When It does, some few negroes generally possess tbe money paid

Many naturalists hnve beld that pearls
are the result of n disease iu the oyster
nnd others tbat they ore caused by tbe
shellfish coating intrusive bodies, such
as grains of sand, insects and even small
tisbes, with nacre, so as to make tbem
agreeable to its soft flesh.
Now, nccordlng to a French scientist,
there is a distinction between fine pearls
and intrusive bodies coated witb nacre,
which renders botn views more or less
right. It Is true that foreign Indies entering Hie shell nre coated with tiucre uud
sold as pearls, often of peculiar and fanciful shape. They occur between tho
"mantle" and .the shell, bnt arc usually
attached to the shell hy a neck of the
pearly mutter.
These pogrls of nacre have not the fine
Iridescence ot the true pearl, but only that
of the shell of mother of pearl. Tbey are
the result ot au accidental Intrusion. Ou
tbe other band, tbe true spherical pearl
of orient luster Is formed In any part of
the shellfish except tbe mantle, nud has
uo connection with the shell itself. It if
a pathological calcification aud seems to
arise from parasites, A pearl thus formed ts composed of crystalline matter. At
its heart is a cavity holding organic matter and calcareous crystals, with remains
of organised creatures, presumably the
parasites which huve provoked the malady iu tbe shellfish, Iu course of time the
sac In which the pearl Is made becomes
thin, and tbe mollusk, breaking it easily,
con eject tbe pearl. I- rora this it is apparent tbat genuine pearls are always
perfectly spherical. If not, tbey are mere
nacre stones.

The methods of manufacture in tbe
popular Mexican drawn lace work are
directly opposed to those of most lace
makers. Instead of weaving tbe gossamer fabric from single threads, stitches
are picked out of a solid piece of the
finest linen cloth, leaving the remainder
in some artistic design. This process is
an extremely trying one, but the results
are exquisite.
Japanese linen Is the fabric generally
employed in this character of work. It is
as fine as silk and adapted to the most
delicate patterns. Some of the designs
are so elaborate aod perfectly executed
as to be scarcely distinguishable from tbe
