The Post  Master   General
Explains.
OTTERS FOR SOLDIERS
'-The Cost of a National War, The Hell
of War ami its Penalty/'���List of
Regiment*! Wanted.
Washington, May 6.���The post office
department today made public the letter of Edward Atkinson, of Boston on
whioh the acticn of I lie department in
seizing his pamphlets wns based.
Many letters asking information about
tlis subject, have reached here, nnd
todiiv the folio's iug statomeut .'was
giv��n out by Postmaster-General
B mi Hi:
In view of the statement of Mr. Edward Atkinson, that bo sent bis pamphlets only to Admiral Dewey, General
Otis, President Boburman and three or
four othors, the letter of Mr. Atkinson
containing his application will be
of interest.
It is as follows :
Boston. April 22, 1899,
To the Seertreay of War.
Sir��� [ desire to send a large number
of tbo enclosed pamphlets on "The
Cost of a National Wot, tbe Hell ot
War uud its P*mnlty, Criminal Aggies-
sion and by Who Committed" to tbe
offloers ami privates on tbe Philippine
Islands. 1 therefore, desire to know
whether or not these documents nan be
sent directly through the War Department nr may be forwarded in due
course of mail. A list of regiments is
desired and if there are printed lis's nf
ollicers available, tbey would servo me
a ver\ useful purpose
(Signed)   TOWARD ATKINSON.
No answer was made to this letter,
except to send nu official copy to the
Postmaster'-General, who issued in-
(���mictions to the post-*.aster at Sin
Francisco, to hold the pamphlets.
Tlie spirit and design of Ibe pamphlets is indicated by 0 few extracts.
In one ot them Mr. Atkinson   savs:
"1 will append ona question to each
render. How much increase of taxation aro you willing to Vicar, and how
many of your neighbor's sons nro yon
ready to sarifico by fever, miliaria, nnd
vi nereal disease iu order to extend the
sovereignty of the United States, over
the West Indies and tho Philippine
Islands."
Again, after describing what he calls
the hell of war nnd its penalty, Mr.
Atkinson says: "Lest others should be
entrapped into enlistment in the regular or volunteer service in tlie tropics
it will only ho fair and honest on tlie
part of tho recruiting officers to be put
in possession of these facts."
Again, Mr. Atkinson savs: "The
way has already become nlain for the
youth of the land to avoid disease in
the tropics, hy refusing to volunteer
or enlist in tho army or navy of the
United States. The way will be found
for the volunteers, now held against
their will to get their release from unlawful service in any other country
than their own, after poace ie declared. "
Mr. Atkinson not only speaks thus
of, and to tho soldiers of the United
States, but lie piionurngos the Filininns
to insurrection when ho says: "They
have the power to enter into inter-
Uatloal negotiations, and they may yet
be reoognized by other powers."
lars.    Miners and   lnbjring  men were
only a  part    of   the   number.    There
were storekeepers,    capitalists,   saloon
men,   preachers,    school-teacher,    and j
even the  postmaster,   in   tbe  motley j
crowd.  The captors recognized neither !
class   nor   occupation.     The  soldiers
started out to get every mail living   in
the   place,   nnd thoy  succeeded.    The
prisoners v ere herded into a train   of
box   cars  and  brought down   hero for
detention,   It   was   one  of Hie  most
remarkable arrests   ever  made in any
country.   Burke is said   to be the  hot
bed of the   dynamite  element  in   thej
miner's union.     Ever   since   the labor
troubles of 1893 it has been   known   as !
a camp that is absolutely controlled by
tbe union.    It  was   the  Burke crowd
whiob on Saturday last  stole a United
States mail Irnin and, with a thousand
masked men, rushed  down   on Wardner to assist in   tho  destruction of lhe
Banker Hill mill.
That deed was ono of the reasons of
the raid of today. Tho leaders of tlie
dynamite crowd had retreated to
Burke and were believed to he still
there unless thoy had taken tu the
hills. In order tn capture whatevei
ringleaders might still remain in the
country, ('moral Mcrriam decided
to capture tho whole male population
of the town.

"When tbe Belgica was returning

'she went ashore off Bengle Channel,

Samoan Kebels.
Sun Francisco, Cal., May 5.���The

writing from Apia, Samoa, under
date of April 20 gives a detailed account of the fighting in which Lieutenant Lnusdale aud Ensigu Monnghan
of the American navy, and Lieutenant
Fieeman, of the British navy lost
their lives.
Ou April 1 a landing pnrty made
up of 00 American sailors and marines
and 03 English sailors and about 120
natives proceeded to Vailelo, to break
up an assembly of rebels who had
been committing depredations in the
"iciuity. The party was under the
command of Liuteuant Angel Freeman, first officer of the Tauaiagn, aud
with him were Lieutenant Cave, of
the Porpoise, and Hyokman of the
Royalist.
The Americans were uuder com-
maud of Lieutenant Lnusdale, wlio
had with him Ensigu Mouoghnn and
Lieutenant Perkins, of the Marine
corps. Dr. Lung, of the Philadelphia
also accompanied the expedition.
After the party had reached the German plnutation, Lieutenant Cuve
naked Captain Huffnugle, the German
manager, if there were any Samoans
in tbe vicinity. The manager said
that none had been there tbat day.
At that very moment and within a
few hundred yards of the expedition
was a large body of rebels.
Huffuugle advised that a return
home be made by way of the main
road through the plantation, ns everything was quite safe aud no rebels had
been about. Three other Germans were
with Hnffnagle, and heard his conversation, no oue gave any warning
of danger. The return march to the
bench wns commenced.
No sooner had the men got out of
the plantation, when, at a band in the
road, large numbers of rebels were
seeu. Tho rebels got clear and a halt
was made to fix the gun,aud the march
was resumed. Misled by the information of Huffuagle it was decided to
return by the main road. Ou top of the
slope, just after the last of the meu
had begun to march through the gully,
rhe rebels fired upon them, the line
wns about 800 yards in leugth. The
rebels were lying in the long grass,
while some were in the top of cocoa-
nut trees. Tbe Colt gnu refused to
act, [aud while Lieuteunnt Lansdale
*vns trying to fix it he was wounded
in the Ki ee.
The nllied forces were attacked from
three sides. The sailors returned,
through the scrub and grass, Lansdale
lining assisted by his men. The firing
of tlie rebels was severe, and Lansdale
who wns being assisted by Ensign
Monnghan and two men, seeing that
he could not get awny urged them to
leave him to his fate. Ono of the soldiers was shot dead and the other, seeing he could not save his officer, retreated and oscaped. Monahan refused
to go and stayod hy his fellow officer.
Next morning tho headless bodies
were found uu the battle field. Mon-
agohan's revolvor was empty,usjwas also Lnnsdnle's. Between them luy the
dead bodies of throo rebels. Mounluin,
before tbo last man left him, shot the

enpe himself hut wus unnblo to du so.
Tho decapitated bodies of the thioo officers were recovered next morning on
tbe field and on Easter Sunday they
were buried with tbe beads, which
had been recovered by French priest.
All the leading Amoricnn and British residents and ollicials were present.
The Germans were conspicuous by
their absence, the only one present being Pastor Margrave who had known

Important Speech,
REBUKES THE RADICALS
Condemns  the   Course   of tin   Imperiil
Government with Kelation to Canada and Australia.
London, May 5.���The Earl of Rosebery, former Liberal Prime Minister,
Lord President of tbo Council, addreB-
ing the London Liberal Club tbis evening, and dilating upon the, "Present
Universality of Imperialism in the British Possessions," said be thought the
Goverumeut was pursuing curious
methods of fostering Imperialism when
it placed a tax upon Australian wines,
and offered only a miserable contribution tied up with tiresome conditions
to the great Canadian aud JAustral-
ian proposal for an Imperial cable.
He added a scathing rebuke to the
threats ot Radical members of the
House of Commons to oppose the grant
to General Lord Kitchener of Khartoum in recognition of services of the
Sirdar in the Anglo-Egyptian campaign for the ro-couqucst of the Soudan.
Later in the evening, when replying to a toust to his health iu -which

would quickly return to active politics,
Lord Rosebery said:! "I hopo nothing has occurred tonight that can be
taken as ah indication thut I have any
intention nf returning to the active
arena, which, deliberately, and for
good roasous. I   forsook in   1896,"
RIOTERS    TRYING   TO   ESCAPE.

Direction.
Wallace, Idaho, May 5.���The mountains aro full of fleeing miners.
Henry Howe went up to Dobsnn's Pass
tbis forenoon, and when returning
found l."i men bended toward Murray
nud Thompson Falls. One gang of
live men stopped him to complain of
the hardship of "working men being
driven out of the country by soldiers."
This afternoon he went up again to the
Ouster mill, and returning fouud 12
men in one squad. Dismayed by the
rumor of soldiers at Thompson's Fulls,
the whole ia turned lack with him.
On meeting the H'nge live more were
toiind aboard. Alter il parley they
turned buck, owing to rumnrs. One
oame into town with Howe, the others
proposing to remain at Monarch, three
miles above here, tonight. For two
nys Mi is road has boeu lined with
men being the only route nut of tho
country unguarded. The road from
Murray to Thompson" Falls' was kept
open all winter, hauling ore. It is
supposed to be good travelling now,
except about eight miles of deep biiow,
and with sympathizers numerous
about Murray.
Mullan reports no arrests today,
the soldiers being busy fixing up camp.
Yesterday, among other comments
on the subject, a business man was
speaking of The Miner's article on
the Nelson public school, and tlio Pro-
vincinl Government's shameful neglect
uud inexcusublo carelessness in the
matter.
Ho said that during the past spring
be knew of three different gentlemen,
capitalists interested in tlie mines
around Nelson, who hnd .brought tbeir
familial hern with the intention of
having them here permanently,
The children were sent to school,
but the. fathers finding the overcrowded, badly-lighted nnd Ill-ventilated
condition uf tho school, hud withdrawn tbe children, uud moved their
fumilies to other cities, remaining
here themselves to attend to their business interests.
Thero were three families, probably
many more that would hnve been living here, familial of tho most desirable type, but owing to lack of educational facilities for their Obildren
fi It. it their duty to move, to some
olher city whole tho Government were
sufficiently interested m the welfare of
the coming generation to provide
schools properly equipped and nf di-
mansions suitable to the nunibor of
children attending.   |
Another one, who was from the
States, said he had ulwuys hoard of
the Canadian school system being so
good and nf the great attention paid
to education in Cunudii, nnd said how
surprised he was on coining to Nelson
to find such u miserable school building in such a sized plaoe; and bow
much inferior in its appointments it
was to schools of less siee ia the
Stutes.
Another one hnd sent his children
to Winnipeg to be educated.
What has Nel ion done to be deprived of a proper public school?

NEGLECTED  B. C.
Senator    Macdouald's     figures   aro
again the subject of remark in the Victoria papers.    British Columbia's total
tonnage last year,   in   and out at  the
four  ports   of    Victoria,   Vancouver,
Nanaimo, and   Coraox, waa   3,71*3,884
tons.    That of   Quebeo   and   Montreal
aggregated 8,347.460, while   the Maritime provinces could only show 2,110,-
021 tons. In shipping,   therefore,   the
Pacific   Province   of    the    Dominion
takes   the   lead.     In customs  duties,
we pay, and have   paid   for   years,   a
larger ratio   per   head thau   any other
Province.    We are  liberal contributors
to the  postal revenue.     It  all  means
that British   Columbia has taken   her
place among   the   most   important  of
the Provinces, and in all federal taxes
we contribute more than a fair   share.
Yet we have no  representation in   the
Cabinst, and no  direct   voice   in  the
administration of affairs; annd we are
very far indeed from receiving a   proportionate  rate  of   expenditure.    Our
taxes   go   into Ontario   railways  and
Nova Scotia wharves and St. Lawrence
channels,     while    public  enterprises
necessary   to   the development of  our
own Province are neglected.
The Colonist takes the ground that
more public money should be expended in British Columbia and that the
Province should have Cabinet representation. The Times, Goverumeut
organ, employs its columns to excuse
its party, and a wretched fist it makes
of it. The Globe does not forget
its loyalty to the men at Ottawa, but
is not satisfied with present conditions ;
it is too courageous to keep silent, and
too houest to gloss over the unwelcome truth. When the matter came
up in the Senate Mr. Mills, Govern
ment leader in that Chamber, excused
himself and colleagues by saying that
their poriod of oflice was \ too short to
enable them to consider all the requirements of ull sections of the country. This wns nol iateuded as a joke,
although no doubt the gentleman indulged in a quiet smile when it first
occurred to him. By aud by when tbe
Goverumeut got around to British Columbia, he said in effect, they would
see what could be done towards giving
us that position in tho conduct of public affairs to which the importnuco of
the Province entitles us. That was
very good of him ; but it could not but
have beeu in his recollection that
���when the Conservatives wero last in
power thoy gave British Columbia a
portfolio, and if his knowledge of
the general administration is as complete as it ought to bo, he must know
that in the matter of publio expenditure we aro rather shabbily treated.
Perhaps he will make such immediate
amends ns he can by supporting the
application of the Nelsou delegate for
nu appropriation in behalf of somo
very necessury public buildings in
this Oity.
to complete the road, its preseut haste
being merely to   head   off   the  Great
Northern.   It   expects to see construction begin at   tbe   Revelstoke end   in
good time,   and   then   will   come   the
advantago to that place.    Its   expectation is not limited   to   this, however.
It professes to believe   that tho line is
intended to be   the   muiu route of traffic through   the   Kootenay.    Through
the Kootenay, yes ; but   does   this also
moan, as somo to the  north of us have
whispered,   that   it    will   ultimately
become an   extension   of   tho  Crow's
Nest, end   therefore   n portion of the
main route of traffic between East aud
West?   If this is the  expectation, we
are afraid there is   disappointment  in
store    for    our    contemporary.    The
Crow's   Nest will be built to  Nelsnn,
where it will connect with tho Robson
road,   and iu a tew years,   when construction   is   completed     through    to
Pentiction aud on   to   the   Coast,   the
main route of East and Wast traffic will
pass   through   Nelson.    Tbat is   what
the future has iu store. There is nothing in this, however, to   distress Revelstoke.    Nolson will   move on to  the
front street,  but   back of  Revelstoke,
np around the Big Bend, is uu enormous
region of grent wealth, whose development will enrich our neighbor.
THE   LARDEAU ROAD.
Tbo Revelstoke Herald is generous
enough not to envy Nelson the good fortune that is expeoted to fall to it through
tho building cf the Lardeuu railway.
It says: "Tho news regarding the
commencement of tbo construction of
tho Lnrdeau railway is vory gratifying, although Revelstoke has ��o wnit
awhile before tho w:irk on this end begins. Nulsun is again reaping the
benefit of furnishing supplies for tbe
construction of the road, and nobody
up here grudges her anything that iB
coming to her out of it. It will give
her another big lift towards solid prosperity, and tho Herald is glad to boo
her get it. Revoltsoke's turn will
come."
We trust it will; but our contemporary will kindly remomber that the
solid prosperity of Nelson was not depending on this Lardenu road. A
number of bnppy circumstnuces combined some time ago to make that
prosperity assured, whether with or
without tho advantages of othor railway construction. Indeed, so grout
has that prosperity already become that
railway and other enterprises are seeking it, instead of it going bat in hand
to bog tne favor of this thing or that.
At tho sumo time it i8 not to bo understood that Nelson iu above courting
legitimate favors. We are on the
lookout for nil honorable ohanots, and
havo uot the1 least intention in tbo
worldjto drift into n condition of laziness and indifference because wo nro
waxing fat.

REGARDING BIGHT   HOUR LAW.
The news printed in yesterday's
Minor of the approaobing enforcement
,i f tbe eight hour law oaused a sensation bordering on consternation among
the business and milling men of
Nelson The decision wns unexpected, it having been hoped that the Government would decide otherwise, As
it is, all is uncertainty and doubt, for
the mine operators will not pay the
same wage for eight hours as tbey did
for ten, nnd it is doubtful whethM
the miners will accept n reduotion
without 11 struggle. There lies the
crux of tho situation. The action
of the Government means either il reduction in the wages of the miners, or
a general shut down of the mines���
���in other words a total loss of the
wages of tho miner.
There are some, who, perhaps, do
no| fully appreciate tho extent of tho
loss entailed upou a mine, if thoy
were to pay tho same amount for ten
bourn work as they do for eight, It.
does not mean SO per rout, cut off tho
net profit bot practically 20 per cent,
added the cost of operation. As a
prominent mining man said yesterday
to a Miner reporter, "Suppose a mnn
wilh a small capital, say $10,000, owns
a mine, au I suppose that it costs him
$10,000 dollars a month to operate
it. Four-fifths of tins amount may
be safely put down to wages, so his
nny roll amounts to $8,000 a month.
We will say his net Drofits for the
year are $10,000, or 100 per cent on bis
capital which is very goodjjmoney i
what would happen if he had to pay
his men 20 per cont more as is now
demanded of the mine owners? His
monthlv pay roll would lie $0,600 instead of $8000 a difference of $1800 a
mouth or $10,200 a year. In other
words the owner, instead of making
��10.000 a year, would lose $0,200.
This shows how easily an advance
in wages, which some consider trivial, can convert a handsome dividend
iuto a substantial loss."
Mr. James Martin, the member for
Rosslaud, came into town last night,
and informed a Miner reporter 111:��t
lie approved of the eight hour law,
that it wns one of the planks of his
platform and that consequently he was
pledged to it. He thought that eight
hours was long enough for a man to
work underground, where lhe conditions wero frequentlv unhealthy. He
also said that in Kossland (where ninny
of the mines iihut on tho city limits)
the meu wanted the extra time lo
themselves ns it gave them time to be
with I heir families. Asked if he knew
what the other Kootenay members had
said whon asked hy the Government
as to the views of their constituents
Ho replied that he did not know. He
had not. seen or communicated with
Mr, Hume since (lie house rose. It
may he mentioned in this connection
tbat Mr. Hume was expected in town
last night, hut did not arrive.
Surprise   and   Alarm Throughout,   the
Slooan Regarding its Enforcement.
Now Denver, May 5. ���(Special to
Tlio   Miner)���Great   surprise   is   felt
I here nt the announcement in mining
circles that the eight hour law will lie
enforced. It is felt tbat only harm
will come to the country on account of
'such foolhardy legislation.' A meeting of mine  owners  will ho  held  ou
. Monday eveuing to settle the question.
Probably every   mine   in tho district
[will el.*so down unless the miners ac-
oepl $ij a day. Representative people
here think tbat a tettlement will be
arrived at.

prospective spectators may oount on a

A MYSTERIOUS LAUGH.
As a party of throo bicyclists, two
Indies and a gentleman, woro making
their way down the road towards Bo
gustowu, tlio other day, one of the ladies who was somo distance behind the
others had the misfortune to fall. She
was unhurt, however, hut as sbe rose
and started to brush tho dust off her
dress a jeering laugh camo from the
bushes near by. Feeling naturally
angry she mounted her wheel and was
starting off again wl e I the laugh once
more was beard, startling hor so that
down ho came again. The other two
came back to see what the matter was,
and the gentlemen went iu to investigate, when tbo offender was discovered to be a brilliant green  parrot.

MINES OF \
\        KOOTENAY \
Slooan City, May 4. ���(Special)���The
Arlington mine will begin work at
once. Mr. Du Bois the newly appointed luanagor is hero anil yesterday scoured a number of miners to work ou
the property. A new pump is ou the
way here, nnd just as soon as it is installed work will begin in earnest.
It is the intention of the manager to
sink a shaft. The operation of this
property means a great deal to Slooan   City.
The Bank of England mine is working along, mining, sorting and sacking ore and looking better with every
Bhot.
The Black Princo which adjoins
the Two Friends has five feet of clean
ore and only one wall yet in sight.
* *   *
The rise in the price of silver this
week has come without any apparent
cause. We show in another column
that the supplies of the metal so far
this year have been abundant, while
there has been no special demand from
any quarter, and the shipments to the
Kast havo fallen off. The French Government recently bought considerable
quantities for coinage, but the purchases were made without disturbing
the market, and tbey are now completed. The only reason given for the
rise is some vague talk of buying on
Chinese account, which is not substantiated by any facts. The present
movement, indeed, seems to be chiefly
speculative in its nature, and there
are various stories about its origin.
In London it is attributed to New York
and some connection with new arrangements of the American Smelting
Company is spoken of. In New York,
on the other hand, London parties are
credited with the rise, and it is said
that the same parties who have been
largely concerned with the heavy speculative advances in copper and tin
have now taken silver in hand, and
are forcing the advance. Hence, a con
tinued rise is expeoted and further
developments will be watched with
interest.���Engineering and Mining
Journal.
* *   #
We have for some time reported
that there were indications of a coming revival in British Columbian
mines, and the sharp advance which
has taken place in Le Roi shares is a
caBe in point. It is probable that
other British Columbian mines, which
are situated on that goldfield or elsewhere, will also become more active.
There is, for instance, the Athabascn
mine, which was taken over by an
English eompauy iu .Tune 1898. No
attempt has been made to market the
shares, those connected with the company being apparently content to let
the developments and rosults of the
mine speak- for themselves. It will
be interesting to now point out, however, that between April 189S and
January 181)1), over ��10,000 was expended in machinery and development
aud further sums have since been
spent iu tlie samo way. un one of the
two ledges to which work has so far
been confined, a drift, started, to run
to upwards for 150 foot continuously in
high-grade oro, has exposed oro to
the value of upwards of ��60,000. The
other ledge has been proved to a depth
of 128 feet, at which level there is a
drift in oro to the Jength of 110 feet.
and there is a large chute carrying
ore worth ��12 per ton, with a larger
body of milling ore ranging from
��2 lo ��4 per ton. The machinery erected includes ten stamps, and; is worked
by water power. From January to
March 1899, 1,600 tons of ore have
beens crushed for an approximate value
of ��4,560.���The Citizeu, London.

A trip of inspection over the Arlington mine at Slocan City was made yesterday by H. Dubois, formerly super
inteudent and assayer for the Enterprise.

The shipment of ore from the Slocan
last week was the smallest siuce the
commencement of the year.

Tho trouble with the landslides on
the branch line from Fernie to the
Coal Creek mines aro at an end for
the present and steady work has been
resumed. A change of locomotives
has also been"! effected to the great
advantage of the  mines.

WORK ON  THE COKE OVENS.
Fernie, May 5.���Mr.   Baldrof,   who
has a contract to build a hundred coke
ovens here this Bummer for the Coal
Oompany. has already 150 men at
work, and will considerably increase
this number as soon as the frost is
thoroughly out of tho ground and work

AN   ADVENTURE   WITH   BEARS.
A Lively   Tusslo   Wtih   Throo  Bears
Near Casoade Oity.
Cascade Oity, B. 0., Mny 4.���Stanley Maynll returned to town yesterday
evening with a tale to tell of an ex
perieuce that he docs not desiro to
happen again. To tbo correspondent of
the Spokesinau-Keview he related
tbe following;
"I left at noon for the purpose of
fishing in Deep Oreek, and not boing
successful was walking on the river
bank with the hope of having some
boar shooting aud suddenly came on
three bears together���a cub and two
old ones.| I shot the cub with my
gun, hoping by that means to hold tbe
attention of the other two, so as to
bag   them   but  I j was    immediately
charged by the larger one. Wailing
until it got within about 110 feet, I
drew the trigger and, to my astonish
ment, found the chamber empty. Not
having timo to reload 1 throw mv guii
at the,brute and made for the nearest
tree, losing my cup and scratching myself enrouto. With difficulty I hoist
ed myself out of immediate danger,
and with my revolvei���a !!8 Smith St
Wesson*��� I fired at the boar, missing
him the first shot, but the second
time 1 hit him in the face. By this
time the othor bear had reached the
foot of the tree, and I took a shot at
him wounding him in tbe shoulder
This left mo with an empty pistol,
and us practically, the whole weight
of my body was dependent on my left
hand, I was unable to reload, aud was
forced to remain up the tree for a
quarter of an hour, when my foes decamped and I was enabled to get down,
secure tbe cub nud hurry home. There
are numbers of bears to be had around
here and only lust week n remarkably
line grizzly was brought to town. I
consider this section of the Province,
with everything taken into consideration for transportation, about the best
large game hunting, as also for fishing, to be had."
Mr. May all's gun was considerably
scratched up by tho infuriated bears
and his hat wns torn to shreds.
It is not too early to make up your
mind how many copies uf The Miner's
Specie 1 Kootenay Number you will
send to your friends in the East. If
you will leave a list of the names together with ten cents for each one, at
The Miner oflice the papers will be
mailed for you without any further
trouble om your part.
THE LAST OF MOWAT.
James Mowat, who lived in Nelson
and Kaslo for many years, died last
March ou the trail between Telegraph
creek and Teslin Lake. Jimmy had
his peculiar ways, In 1892 he owned
a claim near Nelson aud for three
weoks he wasted ozone trying to sell it
lo us for $125. Ho finally traded it to
George Neelands for a Kaslo lot. We
bought the lot from Jimmy for $125.
The flood spoiled it is '94, but thi
claim it is traded for is now called the
Athabasca. As we said before, Jimmy
had peculiar ways. In the fall of '93
we walked from Watson creek to Kaslo
with him. Abont noon we reached
the Blue Ridge Hotel, kept by Neil
and Bob MacDonold. We wanted Jimmy to dine with us, bnt ho would not
do so, claiming that To cents was too
muoh for a meal, aud ho would not allow us to spend that much ou a menl
for him. This is why ho was peculiar.
Well, Jimmy sleeps on tho banks of
Telograph creek, and we could not go
to press without making a few remarks about an old trail blazer who
wns an honest man.���New Denver
