A Modest Request.
A meeting of the settlers of Spilli*

Saturday, Sept. 25th, to discuss the
advisability of petitioning the Commissioner of Lands & Works to request
him to grant them more time to pay
the monies due ou their pre-emptions,
than the notice recently issued and
dated Aug. 8th calls for. The act was
passed last session but was not generally known until recently, when notices
were posted and it appeared in the
local press. Consequently it has come
somewhat suddenly upon the settlers,
who in a great majority will be absolutely unable to comply with it, and
this notice is circulated by the above
settlers iu the hope that pre-emptors
in other districts of the proviuce will
take up the matter and combine with
them in petitioning the Commissioner

"Russell, I want you to do me a favor. You know Mr. Fenton's house
at Penge, close to your own immediate
neighborhood ? He requires some
brilliants seut down to him, without
fail, this evening. Here is an envelope
containing samples to the value of
��600, from which he will select. Can
you call upon him at eight o'clock und
execute this little commissien for me?"
"Certainly, sir," answered Howard
Russell, readily, and his face flushed
with pleasure at the unexpected confidence thus shown in him by his employer. Mr. Stanton, the well known
diamond merchant.
"Our friend Rorke is, it seems, too
much occupied with some private
business of his own, and is unable to
go," continued Mr. Stanton, drily, by
way of explanation. "But since you
can ���well, take care to deliver the
packet personally into Mr. Fenton's
o.vn hands, Recollect, the value is
considerable, and I must hold you responsible, Russell.''
Promising to carrv out the instructions which were th.en given him in
detail, the young fellow left his prin-
pat's sanctum highly elated; for never
before had stones to so great a value
been entrusted to him.
He felt that he had this morning
won a better place in the diamond
merchant's establishment, and was so
much tbe nearer to possessing Alice
Heulon, the pretty typewriter close by,
who, only the previous evening, had
accepted an engagement ring from him
Truly, his luck was in the ascendant
just now.
As he emerged into the outer room,
with the diamonds secure in his pocket
book, he was too full of his own
thoughts to observe the suspicious
movements of Arnold Rorke, the
senior assistant, consequently, it never
struck hiin that Rorke had contrived
ti overbear every word that had passed between him and Mr. Stanton.
Nothing, however, happened until
midday, wueu it was customary for
the two young men to go out to lunch.
Howard usually being ullowed to go
first. But to-duy Roikeevidently intended to reverse .he order of things,
lur. taking down his hat, ho observed,
carelessly :
"I think I'll go out first for once,
Howard, aud as I want to clal at two
or three places, I may be a little longer than usual. You can tell the governor if I'm a bit late. But I daresay
I shall be back in time for you to see
the angelic Miss Heaton, so you
needn't open your eyes so wide," and
before Howard could make any reply
to this altogether unexpected, and
quite uncalled-for sarcasm, Rorke had
"So Alice has replied to his somewhat abrupt proposal, as she promised
ine, and the reply has not pleased him
���that is certain," murmured Howard,
stifling his indignation. "Now I
kuow what has made hiin so disagree
able all morning*, but after ull, and in
spite of his covert threats and sneers
during the last few weeks, I daresay
he'll get over it. Rather hard hit,
though. I'm afraid; vet. if a man will
court defetit���"
Moanwhile Arnold Rorke mude his
way straight to a public house, at
which he was apparently well known,
for as be entered several men nodded
familiarly towards him. Presently he
beckoned to a stout, ruffianly looking
man standing alone, whose brutal,
drink-sodden features were a sufficient
index to his character.
"Matt," began Rorke in a low voice,
and casting a furtive glance around.
"I need not wait any longer for my
revenge on that soft-mouthed fool.
Howard Russell, although its not to
be the sort of revenge I spoke to you
about, But that won't matter to you,
and, what's more, the satisfaction I'm
going to take will pay you a thousand
times better thun what I promised."
"The pay's all I trouble about. The
rest is easy and certain���done in a
tick. What d'yer want me to do?
And who is going to pay such big
Russell himself, if you're man
enough to carry out what I've come to
propose to you."
Man enough?" exclaimed the ruffian
with an oath.    "AVhy���"
All right, don't bluster. Listen,
and keep your tongue quieter, will you?
To-night, young Russell ia going to
call upon a Mr. Fenton, r.t Penge.
Here's the address. He will have to
pass a long stretch of waste, and it
will bs dark. Understand? Give him
a good thrashing, and help yourself to
all you find in his pockets. That's all
I want you to do, and the opportunity
has offered sooner than I expected. As
for the rest, I shall manage that."
'���I daresay," sneered the bully,
Matt Skelton. "And what if I and
my pal���course I ain't going alone on
such a job���what if we only find a
miserable half-dollar or so for our
"If you look well you'll discover an
ordinary envelope which you will find
to contain diamonds to the value of at
least ��600," answered Rorke, slowly,
and with a malicious grin.
"What?" gasped Skelton, staggering backwards a little. "You are
lying, Mr. Rorke!"
"If you should find that I have deceived you, come up to Mr. Stanton's
place to-morrow morning and split on
me, then," was the quick retort. "Isn't
that good enough for you? I tell you,
Howard Russell will have six, perhaps
seven, hundred pounds' worth of very
real sparklers in his pocket, and you
can have them for the taking."
"Right; 1*11 prove you, my prince of
plotters; only if it ain't true���" and
Rorke's sallow face grew whiter than
ever at the dark, sullen scowl with
which he was favored by his companion.
"Perhaps I'd better explain," he
said, after a slight pause. "Can't you
see what I'm going to do? Nobody
has told ms that Russell will have
diamonds of such value in his possession to-night. It's only what I found
out by listening. So, to-night, I'm
going to take the liberty of calling
upon the governor at his private house
with a very pretty little story concerning the trusted Mr. Russull.
"I'm going to say tliut I happened
to be in a certain public-house, and
overheard none other than Russell
himself talking with some one else iu
the private apartment next 10 mine;
how I listened, aud heard him telling
that he was in possi ssion of diamonds
of great value, and how he proposed
to his companion that he should act
the pari of robber, waylay him, and
relieve hiin of the diamonds. He would
roll in the dirt, tear his coat, and, pretending that he had been stopped and
robbed of everything, go off to the
police and complain, so as to give
color to his story. No one could dispute such a tale, I will make Russell
go on to add, aud although he would
be sure to get the sack, it wouldn't
matter, as he would get half the
"Then, if Mr. Stanton does not believe me he will have to the next
morning, for see how the thing will
work out, eh, Matt?'' and the younger
villain laughed and rubbed his hands
with great satisfaction as he thus explained how he intended to ruin his
unsuspecting follow assistant.
"So that's to be your revenge upon
the tall, good-looking bloke who's cut
you out with inissie? Well, it's a
very neat scheme, I must admit; but,
as bad as I may be." said Skelton,
bluntly, "I couldn't have planned it
all like that."
"You needn't perform your part, if
vou object," returned Rorke, wilh an
angry frown.
"Object! ha, ha! That's just what I
ain't going to do," was the emphatic
reply. "But what share of the swag
do you want out of this precious deal
in sparklers?"
"None, Bully Skelton. You may
keep it all. It's the price of my triumph over my rival���aye, and over
Alice Heaton as well," he added to
"You're liberal! So liberal that we'd
better say good-bye for good, Mr.-
Rorke," observed Matt, laconically,'
"Once the diamonds are in my hands,
the old country won't hold me a day.
Besides, I couldn't safely exchange
'em here, so you needn't Ue uneasy on
that score. Oh, yes, consider-the job
done and your enemy done for!" \
The two men shook hands, and,
congratulating himself upon the fact
that certain ruin was about to overwhelm his successful rival, Rorke returned to his duties in such good
humor that even Howard began to
wonder at the cause.
voice, and, looking round, the two
young men beheld Mr. Stanton standing in tho doorway of his private
room. '
Rorke, hardly able to express his
feelings of exultation, readily stepped
forward. Howard quietly, and without a tremor, obeyed likewise.
"Sit down, Russell; you look quite
ill," said Mr. Stanton, in a strange
tone., ,
"Let me tell you .both," he added
coldly, "lhat this gentleman is Detective-Inspector Cooper, who wishes to
hear what you have to say. Suppose
you start, Russell."
"You see, six;," broke in Rorke eagerly, "exactly what I thought it my
duty to make you acquainted with lust
night has happened, uud���"
"Kindly keep silence till you are
asked to speak," interrupted Mr. Stanton sharply. "Presently we shall be
glud to hear whatever you have to say
Now, Russell."
"I haven't much to tell, sir," came
the unhesitating reply. "But I hope
you will first permit ine to express my
great surprise at the turn given to this
affair, and your knowledge of It all.
Well, last night 1 waa on my way to'
Mr. Fenton's house when 1 was stopped
"Oh, uo, sir; I forgive him from the
bottom of my heart," interrupted Howard vehemently, in tones which quivered with joyful excitement. "I'm
only too happy to know that not the
slightest suspicion attaches to me now
���thanks to my lucky act of forgetful*
ness. And���why, I'm only just beginning to see what a terrible plot
there has been against me."
That same day Howard Russell
stepped into the vacancy caused by
the unexpected and forcible retirement
of Arnold Rorke; which better position
amply compensated him for the rough
treatment he had received.

and brutally assaulted.
It. was the following morning, and
the diamond dealer's right-hand man
was cross-examining Howard ou his
own responsibility.
"A very cleverly-invented tale you
are telling, you thief!" Rorke said at
last, with finely assumed indignation!
"And I suppose you think these petty
injuries will help to deceive us all?"
Poor Howard looked a sorry specta
clo as he sat in a chair, with Arnold
Rorke standing triumphantly before
him. One arm was wrspped in a surgical bandage, his face was bruised
and cut, and altogether he looked quite
different from the bright, happy fellow
of the day before.
"A line tale, indeed," and the sneering laugh which accompanied the
words made Howard look up in astonishment. "I hope you'll get Mr. Stanton to swallow such a yarn! But. as
it happens," continued Rorke, making
the fatal error of anticipating what he
made certain was the sequel to Howard's story. "I found out all about
your nice Utile plot last night, and
considered it my painful duty to call
upon Mr. Stanton, who blamed mo for
not giving ypu in charge there and
Howard's astonishment ripened into
mute amazement.
"I don't know what he will do; but
he was here before me this morning,
and I believe he is conferring witb the
police tills very moment. Many a man
would gladly take your.bruises if he
thought he could make three or four

Oh, you really need not look up at me
in so virtuously indignant a fashion,
Mr. Howard Russell! I assure you���"
"You must be mad!" cried Russell,
recovering from his mingled astonishment and horror. - "I don't know
what you mean!" and, indeed, Howard,
who had only partly told his story,
when he was thus interrupted by
Rorke, had not even referred to the
diamonds as jet.
'Oh, of course not," with another
contemptuous laugh. "Unfortunately
however, we all know what you mean,
and I say���"
"Russell, and you, Rorke���I want
you  both,"  suddenly  came a sharp

Everything 1
had was taken from; but I nm happy
to say that the diamonds���"
He paused and looked from one to
the other as a sudden exclamation
burst upon his ear. Rorke turned pale.
Mr. Stanton clenched his hands nervously together, and the detective
smiled grimly.
"Ah, the stones!" almost snapped
the diamond merchant. "The thieves
did not succeed in getting them I believe?" and the words sent a sudden
shiver over Arnold Rorke.
"No, because, fortunately, I had not
got them with me. I took them out of
my pocket when I got home to show
my father, who himself was once in
the diamond business; and then went
off without the stones, forgetting that
I had meanwhile locked tbem up, for
safety's sake, in a small iron box. I
have brought them back with me this
morning. Here tbey are, Mr. S-.anton,
and I can assure ynu that I never felt
so happy iu all my life as I do at this
moment, in knowing that the thieves
did not also secure your property."
Mr. Stanton, without a word, took
the envelope, turned out the stones,
and examined them.
"A simple story and a satisfactory
one," he said with a grim smile.
"And you, Mr. Rorke? What have
you to say now? I don't think.that
pretty little deal in diamonds has ended quite to your liking, eh?"
"Why, sir, I-I���" stammered
Rorke, in husky tones���"I don't understand it. There is some plot here
to dupe you. I swear that what I
told you last night was the truth."
"Come forth, fellow, and confront
your wretched accomplice," was the
diamond merchant's stern command,
and then, indeed, did Rorke turn deadly pale, and clntch at the back of a
chair for support, for from behind a
screen there stepped none other than
the bully, Matt Skelton.
"I threatened what I'd do if I didn't
get the sparklers," grinned the ruffian,
defiantly, "and I've carried my threat
out, too, you white-livered hound, if it
does cost me a few months' liberty.
The game's up, and that young
shaver's won the girl, after all."
"Mr. Inspector, tuke my assistant,
Arnold Rorke, into custody please,"
Mr. Stanton said, pointing to the
trembling man. "I charge him with
conspiring to rob me of diamonns to
the value of ��600. As for that man"
���he turned to Skelton���"I refrain

One of tbe most obvious defects in
the system of things of the present
duy is the very inadequate protection
afforded to the mining community
against unscrupulous and incompetent
assayers. Assaying has of lute years
become quite a profession of itself,
without possessing thc safeguards and
guarantees of the medical and legal
callings. At present, it is possible for
any one, however incompetent, to set
up as an assayer; there is no board or
association of any kind to control hiin
or vouch for his competency. If he is
sufficiently sharp, his imposture will
perhaps for a time escape detection,
and he will carry on his business,
giving inaccurate assays and making
his analyses mostly by guess woik
until he has succeeded in making the
locality in which he practices too hoi
for him, when he transfers his oper
ations elsewhere, Meanwhile, thc
prospectors and others have been paying their money for assay certificates
which are absolutely valueless. The
result of this is obvious. Mining men
begin to lose faith in assayers. Again,
there is the unscrupulous assayer���the
assayer who, for a monetary consideration, will give any certificate he is
asked for. This class of men is to be
found in every mining country.
Little wonder then that the practical business man treats an assay certificate as waste paper until it has been
confirmed by an independent opinion.
As the matter stands at present, an
assayer does not. to usi the common
expression of the country, count, for
Now, in a country like British Columbia, whose development aud prosperity in tha future depend largely on
its mineral resources, an honest and
competent assayer is as indispensable,
if not more so, than a doctor or lawyer. No one thinks of doubting the
good faith of either of these, for the
simple reason that they are answerable to their respective associations
for their deeds, and the same associations, in allowing them to practice
in the province, have given the public
a guarantee that tbey are competent
and trustworthy men.
The Government has lately made a
feeble pretence of controlling assayers
by instituting an examination. Candidates for the certificate of assayer
have to satisfy the examiners in the
dry assay of half-a dozen mentis. This
is ai!. Tbe newly certified assayer
will then be able to start business so
to speak, under the guarantee of tlie
Government. Ho bus proved his competency in assaying half-a-dozen
metals; but that will not prevent him
fromnndertaking analyses. His clients
will hare full confidence in him for a
time, knowing vaguely that he is certified by tbe Government as an assayer. By this means, a, direct road is
opened to fraud, and incalculable harm
is done to genuine assayers.
There is bnt one remedy for tbe present state oi things; a remetl-r which
wil) at once he > safeguard to the public and a means of elevating assaying
tio its proper position among the learned  proCessaons-a  position   which it
has never yet held. An association of
assayers should be formed throughout
the Province of British Columbia.
Every assayer practising in the Province should be obliged to hold a licence
from this association, and, before obtaining this licence, to satisfy the
association by a rigid practical examination that he is competent to assay
any ore likely to be submitted to him.
This examination should also include
quantitative analysis as applied to
coal and other substances which occasionally come in the way of an
assayer. The association should also
have ;,ower to withdraw the licence of
any assayer found guilty of corrupt
practices. By this means, the position of every assayer throughout the
Province would be assured, and the
mining public would have an unquestionable guorantee that the work they
paid for was done in a proper manner.
An association of this kind can only
be brought about by the cooperation
of the leading assayers in the Province
If they once came to an agreement on
this point, it sholild not bo a difficult
matter to obtain the necessary authority from the Government, So, to the
assayers of British Columbia, this
proposition is respectfully offered.
It may happen that my statements
concerning unscrupulous and dishonest
assayers may be considered us exaggerated. If this is so, I can say that to
my certain knowledge tliere are at the
present moment assayers practising in
British Columbia who have never been
through any certified course of assaying ; who posses no degree or diploma,
und who for their work rely entirely
on their own wits and a text book of
assaying, The dishonest assayer is
not so frequently detected as his incompetent brother, but he exis's in
this as in every other mining country,
as every mining man well knows.
It is very far from my intention to
cast'any nliir on the assayers practising in this Province. I have only
endeavoured to point out the dangers
of allowing such un important position
us thut of assayer to be held by any
one who is not under direct control
and who has given no guarantee that
he can fulfil competently the obligations he undertakes.���Kootenay in
