The story of "How Paddv Won Hie
Norah," was beautifully told by Mrs.
Elizabeth Strong Worthington in tbe
Alexander Hall last Monday evening
to a small but appreciative audience.
Mrs. Worthington held the attention
of her audience from stsrt to finish,
and the frequent outbursts of applause
were convincing proof of the lady's
ability as an elocutionist. In the
Fire Scene Mrs. Worthington was
especially good and displayed great
dramatio talent. At the close of this
story Mrs, Worthington favored the
audience with a ahort sketch, entitled,
"Joe and Me," a western love story,
which afforded the audience a hearty
At the conclusion of the entertain*
ment Mr. C. A. Warren announced in
his usual bland manner that a dance
would take place if volunteers could be
found to furnish the music. The hall
being speedily cleared dancing was
commenced and kept up with unabated
vigor till about 1 a.m., everybody
voting it a most enjoyable affair. The
only drawback of the dance being the
lack of musicians. Those who could
have helped in this way were probably
too eager to dance and the bulk of ths
work fell to Miss Jennie Wells, who
acquitted herself creditably and to
whom the thanks of the dancers sre
due for the willingness with which
she responded to the call for music,
Wall flowers were few and far
No dancing was done on tbe square.
Wishes were expressed tbat social
hops become more frequent now the
hall beasts of an instrument.
The next dance will take place after
the Oddfellows picnic.
It would be well for the dancers to
show in some wsy their appreciation
of the musician's efforts to gratify
their wishes.
A vote of thanks to Miss Jennie
Wells for her services would certainly
not have been out of place.

SATURDAY, AUG. 29, 1896.
Ottawa, Aug. 20.���The first session
of the eighth Canadian parliament
opened with all the ceremony aud
military pageant customary on such
occasions. The attendance in the
house of commons and senate galleries
was larger than for many years, excursions from outside points bringing
hundreds of people to the Capital,
many of whom found it impossible to
got  inside the  parliament buildings.
The commoners assembled at 3
o'clock and a few minutes later were
summoned to the senate by Black
-   The speech from the throne in English and French was as follows:
Hon. gentlemen of the senate and
gentlemen of the house of commons:
The necessity ot making provision
for the public service has compelled
nie to summon you together at this
somewhat inconvenient season.
It is impossible to lay before you
at thi-* session the public accounts for
the past year, or indeed any of the
reports usually submitted to parliament. Under these circumstances and
in view of the fact that you will be
required to re-assemble early in the
ensuing yesr, it does not appear expedient to Invite your attention to
any measures beyond the passage of
the supplies.
The oporstion of the tariff will be
made tbe subject of careful inquiry
during the recess, with a view to the
preparation of suoh a measure as may,
without doing injustice to any interest
materially lighten the burdms of tbe
Immediate steps wiil be taken to
effect a settlement of tbe Manitoba
school question, and I have every confidence that when parliament assembles this important controversy will
have heen adjusted satisfactorily.
Gentlemen of the house of commons,
the estimates for the current year will
be laid before you forthwith.
Hon. gentlemen of the senate and
gentlemen of the house of commons:
I hope that when yon have given
the necessary attention to the consideration of the year's supplies-1
msy bs able to relieve you from the
dutv of further attendance at this
session ot parliament.
Mr. C. G. Strong, principal of the
public schools at Anderson, Cal., says
"I have used Chamberlain's Pain
Balm and have found it sn excellent
remedy for lameness and slight
Lsmsnsss usually results from a
���praln, or other injury, or from rheumatism, for whioh Chamberlain's Pain
Balm is especially intended and unequalled. It affords almost immediate
relief and in a short time effects a permanent cure. For sale by Druggists

Miner: Mr. Gordon of the Trail
Mining company, has been making a
number of tests of the ore from the
-.ootenay mine and the results are
quite satisfactory. Tbe assays run
Irom 93 to f.'iU and the average is
above $25. This makes it a safe shipping ore.
The O.K. compressor was brought
up from Trail Tuesday and is now
���wing put in place beneath tbe substantial building erected lor this mine.
As noon as this new plant is in operation tlio O.K. will be beard from as
1,.ere is a great quantity of ore to be
iaken out.
A shaft is being sunk on the east
end of the Celtic Queen and is uow
down about 80 feet. The first 20 feet
was in drift w liich is very heavy at
this point. The ledge was found wide
and strong aud some very good ore is
now in sight. The indications for a
body of reasonably high grade ore are
very good.
Solid copper ore is now found in the
Wallingford on Record mouniain.
The improvement in tlie ore during
the last few days has been very marked. There is hardly a doubt now that
Record mountain is cut by at least oue
copper bearing ledge.
W. A. Campbell has just sold for
850,000 cash the Gold Ring mine,five
miles from Baker city, Oregon, and
near the celebrated Virtue mine. Iu
December last he purchased the property and formed a syndicate to work
it. Tbe cost of the property to Mr.
Campbell and his associates was a
little over 811,000.
Tha new steam hoist f jr the Iron
Mask is apptoaching completion. It
is a* superb piece of mechanism���by far
lhe most substantial aud best equipped
hoist iu the oainp. It will have plenty
to do for there are now five feet ol
solid high grade ore iu the Iron Mask
The new shaft on the Josie Mac in
the South Belt is down eight feet and
the indications are highly favorable
fur finding a body of good ore Au
assay made last week -.bowed 825 iu
silver sud 85.50 iu gold. The ledge
matter is thoroughly mineralised aud
is improving in caracter every day.
Six men are employed on the property.
The building for the Monte Cristo
compressor is approaching completion.
The new plant will be complete aud
in operation in a short time. Wheu
it is there will be five compressor
plants iu Centre Star gulch. It will be
one of the busiest places ever seeu in a
milling camp. A year ago there was
not a compressor from one end oi it t��
the other. Great are the changes in
this wonderful gold camp.
Ed. Welch, superintendent ot the
Sovereign, has issued a uotice that
tenders will be received by him at the
Crown Point Hotel in Trail to-day for
the running ol r. tunuel 100 feet and
and the sinking fe the present shaft to
a depth of 75 feet. The tunnel when
oomple'e will be 400 feet long and will
have a vertical depth of 185 feet. A
force of men has been at work several
days building the necessary cabins for
permanent work on the Sovereign
and thess will bs completed immediately.
���;It is the best patent medicine in
the world" is what Mr. E. M. Hart-
man, of Marquam, Oregon, says of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and.
Diarrhoea Remedy. "What leads me
to make this assertion is from the fact
that dysentery in its worst form was
prevalent around here last summer
and it never took over two or three
doses of that remedy to effect a complete cure." For sale by Druggists

ma BEND.
Kootenay Mail: Revelstoke was
the scene of a sensation this week
when the result of the assays made on
some samples from the Ground Hog
Basin were made known. Two samples out of four weut 8112 aud $140
in gold und the owner of the properties
J. W. Haskins, and the town generally is highly elated. The ore body
from which these samples came is
immense, and a wonderful future for
Big Bend quartz is in sight. There is
no reason why tliere should not be au
excitement in tbe Bend that will outdo any of the already great excitements
of Kootenay. There are few camps in
Kootenay that can look at the Bend
for richness of oro, and in no part of
it are the leads so distinct and so true.
A number of townsite people are getting in on the ground floor and several knowing outsiders are also making
Gus Lund is down from Ground
Hog Basin where he has been doing

The Big Bend Belle, owned by J. D.
Graham, is the northerly extension 'ol
the Ole Bull, and the Golden Hill, belonging to C. B. Hume, liea to the
south on the same lead. Both olaims
aro looking up well and with more
work will become valuable.
Lake wagon road is also being graded
off.    ���
The camp is full of "go" and men
this season. The good finds are so
numerous that every old locution in
the camp is boing recovered.
A local s) ndicsts composed of H. S.
Wallace, R. J. Bealey. E. Mlller.Johu
Elliott snd D. B. Bogle hss purchased
the Csinbridge mineral claim and has
let a contract to sink ths present shaft
to the 50-foot level. The claim will be
surveyed and application made for a
crown grant immediately. A company
is in process of formation to work the
property on a large scale. It is situated at the west base of Lookout mountain and near the St. Mary. The

of the claim that Remedial Legislation
wns no longer a part of their program
and it is freely claimed that money
wns speint lavishly on both sides.
Wi hm an hour after the close of the
poll it was known that Owen Sound,

St. John, August 20. Queens and
Sunbury was tile scene of a lively contest, which resulted in tlie election of
Minister Blair liy a majority which
latest obtainable returns place at 604.
Neither men nor money were spared
un either side aud the best speakers of
each party were sent to work up the
electors. Hon. Mr. Blair's election
was practically conceded some days
ago, though the majority was not Ox*
