"Wal, yon see lliar wnz'bont a
dozen fellers over tliar working Ihe
mines, au' bein all men, we got to he
b'aiued tough. We didn't hev
notliin to read, an notliin to do
when we warn't workin but to play
keerds nn drink whiskey, an so we
sorter slid down hill in',u cussedness
and got to bo 'bout tho hardest lot
over a feller see.
"But one day 'long in spring,
'bout four yenrs ago, a feller come
'long over thar holilin raectin's an
Sunday-schools, When ho fust hi!
Horselliief Pass we didn't take much
to 'im, an somo !o tlie fellers talked
right smart 'bout givin him a coat o'
tar an feathers an riilin im outeu the
camp, au I reckon they'd a dono it
but fer a leotle sureunistanee ivhnt
happened jest then,
"Yon see old Shorty Brown wus
the leader in the camp, an every feller swore by him through thick an
thin, Shorty wuz powerful wicked
au could out-cuss a dozen common
fellers, but he had a heart in him
bigger'n a punkin an 'ud do any-
thing to help tho boys out.
"Wal. bout the time they wuz
tnlkin o' tarrin the preacher, Shorty
he got hurt in the mine, nn fer a
week wuz powerful bad off. We
got ter thinkin he'd reached the end
o' his iced an that he'd bev tor cross
over the range. Shorty'd been the
wust feller in the camp n;;in llio
preacher an it wuz him that proposed
the tar an feathers, so when ho got
liurt the others dropped tho matter
au waited fer him to git well if ho
wuz a-goin to.
"We wuz workin like ore'thing
then to git a new mice opened, au
we didn't hev much cluinco to look
after Shorty, so we had to leave'im
to git 'long by hisself. That preacher
be just seo how it wuz, an blame my
s'liin if li�� didn't j"bt go right down
til hor y's cabin, an fling off his
coat an turn nnss. An ha stayed by
Shorty jest like a mother, an waited
on im an give'm nioiliciun till ho
pulled through all right an got well.
"After that we thought a good
ileal more of the preacher, an as fer
Shorty���wall, I reckon he'd nade
shoit o' anything who'd a said a
word agiu him. Shorty wasn't a
man to go back ou a friend, an he
never forgot a favor. As soon ns
Shorty wuz able to git about be
oome down to tho snloon whur we
usually round up o' nights, and he
"Biys, the parsou's agoin to
preach down at my cabin tonight, an
I want every last oue o' ye to bo
"Wa'n't none of lis hankering to
go, but we could tell by the way
Shorty spoko that ho wuz iu dead
earnest bout it, an we knowed it
wouldn't be extry healthy to refuse,
so we agreed to como.
"An I want you to b'ar in n\in',
says Shorty, that tho preacher's my
friend, an that he's got to be treated
white. I wait you fellers to bo-
have an act decent, an if any galoot
disturbs iho meeting, blamed ii I
don't put a hole through im ou tho
"Shorty'd a done it, too, an wo
knowed it, so you may jest htt ycr
hist dollar that we wuz a mouly well
behaved congregation that night as
we squatted agin tho wall o'Shorty's
enbiu an listened to Ihosarmont.
"At fust I didn't take no special
interest in what the preacher said,
an reckon noneu'tho others didn't
neither, but after he'd talked on a
while hn kinder wanned up to business, an fer bout a hour lie talked
powerful eloquent, shore, an tho
way he ripped them ohl rascals 'way
buck Iher to Jerusalem, wuz n
oaution. Before he'd gone very far
we all got powerful interested, nn
could a listened a heap longer, if
he'd a kep' on,
"After that wo tuck to gnin to
raeeliu rog'lar, nn afore
many nights we got to lookin forrurd
through llio day, an focliu sorter
anxious to In)v night coinc, an with
\l another tiu'mout.
"Shorty idlers set up in front along
o' the preacher, an sometimes when
I looked up thar an see him ho
solemn like, au' remembriu how ho
list to cuss, it wuz bout all I could
do to keep from langliin right out
"Wal, the mcelin's kep on fer a
week, an then one night the preacher
sail he reckoned we ort to hev a
Sunday School. Shorty said, cei-
tainly, an tbe rest uv us agreed,
because we thought it 'ud save
trouble. You seo Shorty hud got
mouty pious, but the way he fingered those shootin irons o' his'n nude
us a leetle jnbous uv im.nn we didn't
know but ho would break out an
shoot some uv us fore ho knowed
what he wus bout.
"So the uext Sunday we met. at
Shorty's cabiu to git up a Sunday
school. Fuit tho preacher prayed
au sung, nn then ho read a chapter
in scripture bout JuJas betrayin his
Master an nil that, you know, an
then hoaxed us to talk-to Borter
give our notions of it
"After waitiu a whilo Shorty rose
up an said:
"Fellers, this yore's a new lay for
me, an it comes a bid awkerd on I
mayu't be able to sav notliin o' uuy
count, but I'm blamed if I don't
feci like somebody orter make a few
remarks, nn i'm willin to wag my
chin far all tber is in it. Tne parson wants our notions o' this yor
whut ho jest read, an fer my part I
hain't baok'ard bout givin mine. In
the fust place I think them thar
Jews was an ornery set, an every
blamed galoot ov em ort a
been made tostrotch hemp. In t' e
nex place, I figgor that that low Hied, Juda feller o-it to a been a dog-
goned sneakin coward. 1 don't mind
a feller bein mean when ho's out mi-
out in it, but 1 huiut got uo use for
them underhanded cusses what plays
the part o' a friend an is jest watchin
fer a chance to throw off on ye.    I
,,���f   tU��l   ,1.M.   J-U.ll,3 IIUIUJ lOltt U.VMI/J
mean sneak, fellers, nn if he givo me
any uv his chin it wouldn't take me
uior'n two shakos ol a sheep's-tail to
put, a chunk o' had through 'im.
Parson, them's my sentiineuts, an I
reckon they're krect, too. Mebby I
habit talked as well ns some fellers
you've heerd, but you want to b'ar
in min' that talkin ain't my fort. I
kin grub 'long outer a pay streak
bouts well as any of em, but this
yero is a uew lead to mo an' I don't
feel right to bono ou ii.
"Wilb that Shorty sat down au
waited for somo uv the rest o' us to
speak, but we didn't feel ekal to. Ihe
'ension, so nobody rose up.
"Look yore, boys, says Shorty,
this won't do, Some ov [ye shorely
got notions bout this business, an if
ye hev the parson wants to hear cm,
(Jit up, fellers; an speak out.
"Still nobody didn't move, an I
could sue that Shorty wa'n't pleased,
He waited a leetle while, thcu ho
hopped up au said;
"Stumpy Jackson, ycr got gab
'nuff when it comes to swearin, an 1
ligger that you could fling out a few
remarks ou this oreasion if ycr tried,
"I hainl no speaker, said Stumpy,
nn I'd ruther be excused.
"Look yero, Stumpy, sail Shorty,
wo nint goin to bov uo suoalvin out
o' joolies iu this business, Just you
rise up thar au net ycr mouth agoiu,
will ye ?
"Stumpy see that lis were in fer it,
so lie crowli'd up, uu leaning ugin
the wall with bis bunds run down in
his pocksts, ho Buid:
"Fellers, I'm with tlie parson,
I'm in favor of this yore Sunday
school. T think that there Judas
chap what parson read about wuz n
gol darned scamp, an I'm agin im.
Them's my notions.
"Willi thai Stumpy slid down the
will to Iho floor, nn the parson talk
oil a '.little more un then the thiug
wuz over,
"1'urty soon after thut Ihe parsou
went away, an we wuz left to gii
long without im, But Shorty came
out mouty strong then an loved ho
could run thu itislortiitlon, au ho
did, too, au made a success of il yon
"I never seo Shorty's head fer
tiikin a interest in what he took hold
ou. Feared like when he set in to
do a thing hi- je^t put his whole uiiu'
to it, an h ' wasut satisfied lc->- he
wnz doin his level best, Thai's the
way be wuz biMil that Sunday
school, an every Sunday ho wnz
promptly on hand; an he see lo it
that every doggoned ono uv us wuz
tber, too. I never see sieh a change
iu iiubo.ly, no'iher, as ther wuz in
Shorty, He quit oussin an fightin,
an he never portended to go bout
the s'loou uo mor'u if thar hadn't
been sich a thing. When ho wasn't
at work he wuz readin Ihe bible, an
lots o' times he would set fer hours a
singin thorn ole chimes,an fer makin
musii; he wasn't to bo snuffled at,
lemme tell you.
"Wal, we got long fust rate with
that Sunday school,'.an every Sunday Shorty'd explain to us bout
them scripture-sun' he'd alius give
that thar J thi feller a gouge
fore he'd quit.
"Ono Sunday 'long two or three
mouths arter the preacher left,Shorty
got up after ihe Sunday-school business was done, an he says: Fellers,
cordin to my way o' realiu this yere
scripture, I figg-n- out that we ort to
be baptized; au this book knows ita
business, so I reckon we'll go down
to the crick right now uu git that
"Stumpy hopped up to argy the
question, an come out ngin baptizin,
but Shorty shet im up in short order
au carried the pint his owu way.
"A leetle water wont hurt you,
nohow, Stumpy, says Shorty, an I
reckou yon needn't be so powerful
skeered of it. Yet' ort to bathe ouce
in yer life, anyway, an uow's as good
a time as any I
"That wuz a party hard crack at
Stumpy, fer jnrin the six years he'd
been at the camp he hadn't never
bathed once.    Still, Stumpy wuz a

all liked him.
"But bout th"t baptism. As I
said, Shorty curried his p'int, an we
all filed out an down the crick, whar
Shorty put us under, au wo submitted mouty meek, fer he carried two
big pistols, aud wo didn't know but
he'd use em.
"Twasu't long before Shorty's
Sunday-school got to be known fer
an nonrmong the miners, au sometimes people come as much as thirty
miles to see it iu operation, I remember one time a lot o' fellers
come over from Polecat Gulch, au
they wus a ungodly lot, sboro. They
wasn't hardly in the house aforo
they began to laugh an make light
o' the doins, but they didn't keep it
up long, lemnio till you, for the fust
thing they knowed Shorty laid down
Ihe hook he was readin from an
pintin a couple o' pistals at cm,
"We're goin to hev order in this

an tho next denied galoot that makes
a racket had better say his prayers,
fer blamed if I don't drop im in bis
tracks. We're glad to hev visitors
when they know nuff to behave
themselves, but when they dout
they'd better stay nw.iy or bring
their coffins along with em. The
sarviccs'll now pnrceed,
"Arter that Shorty never bad uo

today its flourishin,"

In nn interview with Mr. Mara, M.
P., respecting the inroads made by
the Columbia lliver, on tho bank bo-
low tbe town, we learn that that gon-
tlouiau called the utlentiou of tho
Government to this matter last full,
nud that upon bis request Mr. Gamble, tho Government Engineer, was
instructed to examine tho river and
report as to the best moans of saving
the hunks from further destruction,
Mr. Gamble reported iu favor ot cribs
being sunk or piles driven from a
point below the old steamboat landing, where the ground is solid, to the
Smelter, at a cost of about $10,000.
Mr. Mara tbeu applied for thut amount
to be placed on the Estimates, but
this was refused by the Government.
The Minister of Public Works stated
however that ho would recommend to
his colleagues, that the work be undertaken by the Government, and carried ou under the supervision of an
Engineer iu biB Department, provided
the Smelling Company would pay
one half the cost, this was deeUued
by the Company, and although le-
iieatedly urged by Mr. Mara nnd Dr.
Orton, the Minister would not re-con-
sitler his decision.
The Star is pleabed lo learn thut
an earnest effort is being made to
have a collection of the various
classes of ores of West Kootenay
forwarded to the Toronto Exhibition,
T( il,��� hm.lnOM.man nn.1 ml.,..-..    -HI
heartily co-operate, the mining
camps of Hot Springs, Blue Bell,
Toad Mountain, Eigle River, Arrow Lake, Big Bend and Illecillewaet, can send a collection of valuable ores that will'bo a genuine surprise to many men in the Eastern
Provinces. Mr. J. M, Kellie has
received assurances from tbe steamboat company that all ores for this
object will be transported free of
charge between Sprout aud Iievelstoke, aud he is confident that such
further arrangements can be made
wrth iho railway by which tho collection cau bo shipped direct from
Revelstoke to Toronto.
The Stab would suggest that a
governmeut grant bo asked foj, so
that after Iho exhibition is closed at
Toronto tbe samples could be sen;
to England and there placed ou permanent exhibition at the offices ol
the Douiiuiou Government. Thi-t
would attract the a'.tention of capitalists, and wight be the means oi
directing the flow of capital to our
promising mineral regions, Wh"

asked to j,uin with us in this Miners!

Samuel Hamilton, aged 32, in
The circumstances attending Mrs.
Hamilton's death are exceedingly
sad, She had been the mother of
13 children, six of whom are living,
aud was the centre of an interesting
homo circle. Tho entire community
attested the esteem iu which she was
held by their sympathy and attendance at the funeral ceremonies, The
promising boy who entered ',the
world at tbe cost of ils mother's life,
survives her. Mrs. Hamilton was a
unlive of Menominee, Michigan,
Our starling point was Iievelstoke,
not iu the mujestie "Kootenai," bet
iu a canoe shaped row boat capable
of earning two tons. In going down
ihe river wo bad no need to use the

paddle as a helm;the rapid cuneut
of the Columbia did the remainder,
The scenery along the hanks for a
distance of twenty miles, until we
reach the month of tho river at the

the Upper Arrow Lr.ke, is mo.-l enchanting. Indi ed, so much so, that
we are imminent dinger of cuming
to grief in oootact with iome of the
numerous snag;; with wbieh the
river abounds. Still we can tiud
some time to look around us at the
glorious mountains, whose snowcapped peaks rise high into the
azure sky and look like frosted silver
sparkling in tbe - in a rays, Adown
the mountain Blopes are hung
luxuriant woods, whose colors are
varied and beautiful ua the shades

To the Editor of tlio Stat.;
I see in the Miner an account of a
public meeting at Nelson to take
sleps lo procure a wharf-site, elc.
It might be inferred from the
"kicks" which the speakers gave
'he Government anil Mr. Kellie, our
representative, that they were beiug
very bully used iu Southern Kooteu-
ay, and that they were not allowed a
fair share of the publio appropriations. It slrikes me that they do not
see this matter in its pioper light.
Iu Ihe first place a railroad 26 miles
long is be'ug built for their benefit, which has been subsidized by
both Iho Dominion and Provincial
Governments. It may be summed
up us follows;
Fiuei the Province 200,-
000 acres of laud worth   $500,000
From the Dominion $3200
