JW0T11! YEE. QUIET
DAI AT TIE COURT
Case of Alexander vs.
Continued.
Heap
WITNESSES EXAMINED
All the Eyidence in   Motion for a Non-
Suit Made���Judgment Reserved by
Mr.  Justice   Drake
The peaceful somnolent spoil of the
court house again matlo its influence
felt on the fow assembled thoro yesterday. The case of Alexander vs. Heap
and others, was resumed.
The plaintiff again weut into the box
and Mr. Hod well continued his cross
examination. He did not detain the
witness long. Then Mr. R. M. Macdonald re-examined him in order to
elicit from him au explanation of certain matters brought out in the cross
examination. Mr. Daniel McGraw
was then called who gave evidence as
to a certain conversation with the defendant Heap touching on the mineral
claim in question. Heap had promised
to unfold to him a Ronair/.u, provided
ho would hold his tongue about it, especially when talking to Alexander.
Heap produced a piece of galena and
told witness it was from plaintiff's
claims, but that Alexaudor was ignor
ant of the existence of tho ledgo from
which the specimen was taken ; nioie-
over he did not intend to let Alexander
know until he had bought out his
(Alexander s) interest in the samo.
Walter J. Hughes was the next witness. He hud tried to get an option
on the plaintiff's claims; Heap told
him that they wore really valuable but
that Alexander knew little or nothing
about their valuo. Mr. VV. A. Macdonald, Q. 0.. was then called for tho
purpose of showing that the Nelsou
Slooan Prospecting aud Mining Company, oue of the defendants, of which
ho was president, had notice of the
plaintiff's rights at the time they purchased the property. The witness said
that his information was privileged
as it was obtained from his client
Heap, bur, after some discussion, this
olaim of privilege was baudoued. Witness stated that during the negotiations preceding the purohaso of the
property, Heap told him that the
plaintiff had threatened legal proceedings but upon the facts of the case, as
related by Heap, he (witness) regarded
Alexander's claim as ill founded.
The deal went through without further investigation into the merits of
plaintiffs claim. The plaintiff's counsel dieted the fact from the witness
that the company had no assets save
their bare charter and the respectability of tho directorate which the witness considered made the shares of the
company a valuable consideration.
Evidence taken before trial was then
put in and the plaintiff's case was
closed.
A motion for a nonsuit wjis then
formally made by Mr. Bodwell and decision on same reserved by the court.
The defendant Heap was then called.
He admitted having known of tho new
discovery of mineral on the property
before negotiating for the purchase of
the property and when ho was a copartner of the plaintiff's. He, however, denied having tried to mislead
the plaintiff as ho thought he was acting legitimately iu keeping his 00-
partner iu the dark until he had
bought him out.
Mr, MoAnn cross examined tho witness and then Heath was called. He
had not much to say bearing ou tho
caso, having been absent at tho time
tho sale of tho property to the com
pany had been made,
The four counsel engaged then argued learnedly aud at-length tho merits of their respective eases. Mr. Justice Drako reserved judgment and the
oourt adjourned uutil Monday moruiug,
nt 11 a. m.
AMONG THE FIGHTERS.
hero tonight before a packed houso
Jeffries boxed three rounds with his
sparring partner Jim Daly, of this
city. William A. Brady, Jeffries malinger read from tho stago a challenge
to tight, Tom Sharky about September
IE for a 110,000 sid'o bet. Ho stipulated that the entire purse go to the
winner, and that no side agreements
or secret arrangement* be considered,
ami that tho sailor must agreo to
Georgo Silor as referee. The coutost,

BOAT RACES ON   THE FIRST.
In addition to various other contests arranged for in tho boating liuo
it is proposed that there should be an
international rnco of crews composed
exclusively of men of ono nationality.
The Irish are already organized and
will bo represented by a four, and it
now remains for the Canadians, English, and Scotch to follow suit. In an
other event it is proposed to have four
crews composed of wholesalers, bankers, merchant's and a general erew.
In tlio past celebrations Nelson has
failed to mekn the best use of her
great facilities for sports on tho water
and this year it is greatly to be hoped
that the aqnatio side of tho celebration
will not bo overlooked,aud that it will
he generously dealt with in the way
of a liberal appropriation from tbe
general committee. It is also proposed tu hold a carnival of illuminated
boats 011 one of the evenings nt which
the smelter bnnd will probably bo in
attendance on a barge. Prizes should
ho offered for the best deoorated and illuminated boats and canoes. Those
who have beeu in towns where such
carnivals aro held will testify to the
success of this form of celebration, as
anyone who owns a boat oan chip in
and add to the general effect of tho
illuminations.
The firms who hove promised to furnish floats for tho trade procession are
as follows: D. MoArtbnr & Co., J.
Dover, W. F. Teetzel & Co.. M. Des-
Brisay &. Co., Nelson Saw and Planing Mills, Limited, Kootenay Cigar
Manufacturing Co., Lillie Bros.,
Thorp & Co., Neelauds Shoe Emporium, F. Irvine & Co., The Tribune
Association, P. Burns & Co., Hyde &
Titsworth, and R. Reisterer & Oo.
These will represent many branches of
industry and manufacturing, and will
bo sura to make an interesting and
instructive sight. ���
THE NEW YACHT
LAUNCHING OF 0UP DEFENDER AT
BE1ST0L, E. I.
Theatrical  Effects Introduced���A Great
Demonstration���Boy Killed, and
Several People Injured.
Bristol, R. I., June 10.���America's
new cup dofendor was carefully lowered into the water at the HerreBhoff
works at 8:10 o'clock tonight and as
sho started down the ways Mrs. O.
Oliver Iseliu christouod her "Columbia."
This launching was probably one
of tho most spectacular that has ever
occurred for tho light of day had almost faded when she started down tho
ways and throe powerful calcium lights
played upen her atom and shiuiug
golden underbody with theatrical
effect. Ranged on both sides of the
dock were five thousand spectators
while off tho erd were clustered fifty
or more yachts of all kinds so that
there was plenty of noise, cheers whistles aud guns to help ont the brilliant
effeot of the lights. The launching
was a groat bubcoss from beginning to
end, being attended ouly hy an unfortunate accident among the spectators. The apparatus of a pbotographor
who was preparing to take a flash
light picture exploded, killing a boy
aud injuring several others.
Tho idea of a mariiio railway worked like a charm aud a new cup do-
fender is again aHoat and iu another
few woeks will bo rendy to battle for
the yachting supremacy of the world
aud it is fondly hopod, to keep tho cup
from crossing the Atlantic.
Fitzsimmons Made Good Money Out
of  the  Fight.
New York, June 10.���In tho ovent of
Jeffries winning the recepts were to
be equally divided, thereby making
Fitzsimmons' total receipts $85,561
nnd Jeffries, $27,054. It is declar-
that Fitz would not make the match
until he had been guaranteed the large
end of the purse and the gate mouey
owing to his reputation and position.
Mr. Bradv accepted 40 per cent, for
his man believing that in tho long run
such an amount und a dooision wero
worth more than (!() per cent and a defeat. Immediately after the fight Jeffries suggested that a benefit tor Fitz-
Himmons was in order and offered his
services. This offer was accepted and
Saturday night next was set as tho

WHAT
AT PEACE CONFERENCE
Brussels Conference Section
Met Yesterday-
A  BRITISH   OBJECTION
Great Britain Will Not Bind Herself to
Sign a Convention Drawn From
the Brussels Conference.
The Hague, June 10.���The Brussels
oonforenoe section met today, Professor De Marteus of tho Russian delegation presiding. M. Bihouud one of
the French delegatus submitted Artiole
No. 2, of the conference redrafted
which was unanimously adopted. Article 3 was adopted also after discussion,
but Article 4 was rejeoted. M. Royln
the Siamese delegate, offered an
amended version of Article 5 which
was adopted subject to slight future
modification.
Major General Sir John Ardagb, of
the British delegates deolared that
Great Britain could not bind herself
to sign a convention drawn from the
Brussels conference of 1874, but must
reserve the right of judging of the
necessity or expediency of abiding by
thu stipnlation of that conference or
this conference in general as to orders
to her armies iu the event of war or of
opening a campaign Professor Martens
replied that Russia did not ask the
powers to undertake to embody the
stipulations now agreed, upon in the
instructions given troops at the open
ing of a campaign. Major General
Ardagh said his declaration was only
of a personal character and he would
consult his government in so important
a mutter. A meeting of tbe principal
delegates was held today to request
Count Minister to decide the question
of communication with the press but
owing to failure of delegates to agree,
the meeting was adjourned till Monday. A feeing of disquietude is observable among the delegates of smaller
powers at tbo deoisons of oouference
as to tender of good offices for mediation, they fenring that this may be
imposed on the lesser powers in a way
to restrict their independence, aud
several amendments to this effect
will be proposed when the scheme is
finally discussed.

Now York, Juno 10.���The 02nd series of athletic games on track and field
of the New York Athletio Olub were

events, which made up a very interesting programme. The one mile run
handicap waa won by Alex. Graut, a
sciatch man, who defeated a good
field of which the runners were Spitzer
und Smith of Yale.
Coming in to the homo stretch
Grant cut in on Smith and were it
not for this the Vale man would probably havo finished first aud second.
Smith entered a protest agaiust the
winner, but before the referee conld
pass upo�� it the Yale man withdrew
his complaint and the men wero placed as named.    Time 4:28 1-5.

The Late Conference a Final
Peaceful Effort.
INCREASING THE TROOPS
Ohamberkin Will Likely Take a Strong
Line of Action and Back Dp Next De-
mar d by Force of Arms,
Loudon, June 10. ���When tho Secretary of the State for the Colonies, Mr.
Joseph Chamberlain, in the Houso of
Commons on Thursday summed up the
result of the Bloemfontein conference
hy declaring a "new situation has been
created," he uses a preguaut phrase
open, apparently, to a variety of interpretations, but in reality open to only
one. The politicians who nave closely
followed the affairs of tho Transvaal
and Mr. Ohamberlain'B attitudo with
respeotto them, are fully satisfied that
tbe Colonial Secretary plainly meant
to declare by means of those open negotiations, in which the British High
Commissioner Sir Alfred Milner had
exhautBed every diplomatic resource to
effect a reasonable settlement of the
matter in dispute, it had been proved
finally that President Kruger was irreconcilable, and that all hope of au
arrangement by a suggestion of diplomaoy was henceforth vain. The British are especially exasperated because
thoy fell they have been trifled with,
and the question on everybody's lips
is, "What next?" Mr. Chamberlaiu
is not tbe man to be diverted from his
course. He has publicly aud deliberately espoused the causo of tbe Uit
landers and his next step will be a
domand. Then thero will bo energetio
action to support the i.eiinini). It may
be regarrod as certain that this has
been fnll foreseen for months past.
Fresh tifO.is and large quantities of
munitions of war have gone to South
Africa by every steamer. The troops
have been described as roliefs but those
who they are supposed to relieve have
remained in South Afrioa. A steamer
which sailed in May took 500 of thoso
reliefs and passengers who had previously secured accommodatous had
to yield their places to ollicers and
men. In Natal notably a largo force
has been assembled aud ready to march
at a moments notice. It is estimatod
that tho Transvaal could muster a
fignting force of from 10,000 to 18,000
men while the British troops there
number 11,000 men commanded by the
veteran Major General Sir William
Francis Butler who has beeu in command in South Africa since 1808. In
addition tho British havo a largo body
of splendid mounted riflemen aud
mounted police availablo.
While the country generally is backing Mr. Chamberlain muuy well informed people assort that urged by
Cecil Rhodes and the social influences
the British Chartered South African
company is hurrying the country to
disaster. They say not only will President Kruger not retreat but that the
Transvaal forces familiar with every
inch of tbo ground will ho able to
cope with any force Great Britain can
put in tbe field.

London, May 27.���The feature In thu
B. O. section has beon the sharp recovery of Lo Roi which has been as
high as 8 5-8s and are now H,'.;s. The
special settlement for the shares will
bo made early in June. There has
been some rather heavy carry ovor of
the shares on the stock exchange and
tho change was from 2s to its per share.
The fact is that tho property is well
thought of on the Loudon market
and that tho Bulls do uot mind paying
heavily for u chance. B. A. O. 's,

tbe prospects of further flotations of

The entire day was taken up with addresses hy counsel. The attorney for
defence in asking for dismissal of tho

ciso of tho freedom of religious belief.
Tho prosecution said that if a person
who was ill. persisted in being treated bv a Christian Scientist there is
no legal objection to it, but tbis case

Pleasant Afternoon Spent in
Spite of Rain.
LIST   OF  THE   EVENTS
Ladies   Make   Good  Showing in  Bcttlls,
Tandem and 0-ime Bacl���Names
of Successful Ones.
The sun shore merrily yesterday
morning,and for once.it was hoped tho
boat club wonld have a tine day for
their Regatta. But as the day wore on
heavy clouds begun to gather, a few
drops of rain came and laid tbe dust
and altogether the outlook for the afternoon was ominoiiB.
Sisters, cousins aud wives, however,
in spite of lowering clouds, musterod
iu full (orcc aud the otherwise sombre
liued water frout was transformed into a gaily colored scene of fair faoes.
flounces and Hags.
Every description of water oraft that
Nelsou possesses was put into reqnis
ition, so much bo that tho water in
front of the boat club's bouse hronght
to miud a piece of the Thames on a
bank holiday, a merry little steam
launoh completing the illusion.
The weather  clerk  was  cousiderate
tiough to permit the four oured   raoes
to he viewed by   the   spectators   with
dry   skins.     The   tirst    heat   was    a
tame affair, Mr. Haines' crew winning
usily.
The storm king then began to flap
bis wings ; darker and darkor it grew ;
vivid flushes nf lightening illuminated
the grey, mistenrtuinod background.
Mid the numerous boats crept in nearer to the sheltering boat houses. Nothing daunted four ladies went forth to
compete for the neit race. Hero let a
word l>e said for tho spirit and keenness of tbo so-called weaker sex. Yesterday tbey knocked sparks out of tbe
men for tho muster of males for tbo
sculling race was not stroug enough to
call for u race.
All honor to the belies thon who
not only in the sculling race bnt in
the canoe tandem race were chiefly instrumental in giving the neoessary
"send oil" to the regatta. Place anx

The ladies' sculls resultod in a victory for Mrs. Procter, after an exoiting
finish, Mrs. Whulley being a close Beo-
oud.
In the final for the fours,Mr. Haines'
crew, who rowed a plucky race, boat
Mr. Winter's crew, coming along near
tho finish, winning by a quarter length.
One or rwo of the losing crew mistook
tbe stroke's command to "cease rolling" for '"cause rowing" and acted
accordingly. Then the storm burst
on the assembled crowd with all its
fury and boats and canoes wore hurriedly deserted. It seemed us if ail
boaven's artillery was thundering
on the wooden bout housoa. Tho murky
sky was every now nnd then rent with
vivid forked lightening. The rain,
transforming into bail, hissed along
the troubled waters of the lake. A
fine sittbt it was; and there wero
some who apparently enjoyed the storm
more than the regatta.
The "Dusk of the Oods" seemed to
have fallen on the throng. Events followed with long intervals whioh an
excellent tea, provided by the boat
club, and presided over by Mrs. Goepel. helped to entertain.
However, the ladies and gentlemen's canoe tandem rnco proved interesting. Miss Gurd and Mr. Hoyer,
beating Mrs. Akehurst and Mr. Tait
with tint little to spure.
Messrs. Haines and Winter won the
gentleman's canoe tandem race and the
days' proceedings wore closed witb a
four paddle race which was won by
Mr. Winters' crow.
Oapt. Troup kindly officiated as referee, for which purpose his launch cam"
in very handy, and Mr. H. Selous
made an entirely successful starter.

more immediately   oonoerna the  Canadian reader, but in point of   interest
it must give plaoe to   the  South African situation.   It   is  a  far ory   from
British   Columbia  to tbe Transvaal,
but in that distant   country   there are
men and women of onr own   blood, in
whose fortunes we are deeply interested.   The report that Lord Kitchener is
in   frequent  attendance  at   the   War
Offloe, and that the   effeotive  force in
South Afrioa is to be largely increased,
oomes through a souroe that ii  almost
unreliable enough   to discredit it. The
New York Journal ia the worat of a very
bad sort of newspapers,  bnt  even  the
truth may grace the  columns of  The
Journal now and again, and there may
be substantial  ground  for  its London
dispatch.   We ail know by this time,
however, that affairs in the Transvaal
have reached a oritical   stage,   and   if
the War Office is not preparing to take
n band in it is   only because the Government leaders are  resolved  to  give
diplomacy one more try.
Discussing in   advance   the   conference at  Bloemfontein, in  its issue  of
May 36, The London limes said : "The
material  part  of  President   Kruger's
'concession' is understood to be an offer
to rednce tbe period of probation from
ten years  to  five.    The Uitlander,   it
wonld seem, to obtain   the   full   franchise, must still reside four years, attain SO years of age, and explicitly renounce his former   allegiance   so ns to
become eligible to  the   Second   Rand.
He most  then   obtain,  as  heretofore,
tbe resolution   of   the First Bead and
comply witb  'regulations to be   hereinafter  fixed   by   law.'    But,   if he
can accomplish all this, he may henceforth acquire   the full franchise  after
paying taxes to the  Boer Government
for nine years instead of for fourteen���
at 85 instead of  at 40���while   the  ton
of tbe Boer farmer get* the same  vote
at 16 as a matter of right.    The figures
in tbe  'Staats Almanak' for 1899 give
tbe   total   white    population   of  tbe
Transvaal   as   288,750,    and the  total
male burghers as 29,279.   If a third be
added to tbis  last   number  for male
Boers under 16, and it be assumed that
the Boer female population is eqnal  to
the   Boer   male   population, the  total
Boer population is slightly over 78,000
souls.   Tbe balance oonsistsof Uitlanders, and  tbe  balanoe   is  210,600.   In
other words, 73 per oent. of the  white
population nre deprived of all substantial   share in political rights by tbe remaining 27 per oent. The 73 per cent.,
though they pay  nearly   nil  the taxes
and  possess nearly all the wealth  and
intelligence   of   the   country,   do  not
even ask for   equal   rights   with   tbe
minority. They agree with Mr. Chamberlain, as  all men of   common   sense
and judgment must agree   with   him,
that President Kruger's offer is a mockery.    But they recognise   the   difficulties of his position, and they   appreciate the reluctance of   the Boers to give
others   the   control.   Tbey   say  tbat,
while   tbeir  numbers   wonld    entitle
them to two thirds of the seats in  tbe
First Volksraad, they  will be oontent
with a third or  a fourth, or even less.
All they want is a   substantial minority in  the  Legislature   to    represent
tbeir views.    They tell President Kruger in effect tbat, if he will repeal the
reaotioiiaiy legislation of reoent years,
restore the law upon tbe franchise as it
���tood prior to 1890, and carry   a  moderate redistribution Bill, they will  be
oontent.    Bnt they will not be content
with less.     They insist that past residence must be recognised   ns a qualification for tbe franchise, that the  oath
must be modified, that  the   period  of
probation during which candidates for
bnrgher   rights    are neither citizens
of their native   country nor fully oiti-
zens of tbe   Transvaal  and   the   two-
thirds petition must be abolished, and
that tbeir rights and   status  must be
scoured   to   them   in   an    irrevocable
shape.   Tbe immediate grant of these
eminently   moderate   and   reasonable
demands would ensure tbe peaceful and
prosperous development of South Africa in  the  futnre.    Refusal   or   delay
must perpetuate danger in the  Transvaal, and unrest throughout the neighboring States and colonies."
We are entitled to suppose, from the
failure of the conference the other day,
that there has been refusal. It oan
only be by right of suzerainty that the
British Government can presume to
insist upon any conditions affecting
either the possession or the exercise of
the franchise, and we do not pretend
to know to what length that right
would warrant it in going. Bnt at this
distance it seems a  mistake to put the
finnobise so prominently  forward as a
Krievauce.      Subject to the suzerainty,
which is a  mild uffair, tho  Transvaal
is an independent,   self-govorning Ke-
puhlio, and   it is uot   understood that
other nations have tho right to coerce a
self-governing country into giving the
franchise to  persons  whom the rulers
of that oountry do  not   want   as  full
fledged citizens.    It is doubtful if   the
Uitlanders oan  claim the franchise as
a right, in opposition to the wishes of
those who alone  have the   power  to
confer it.    But  they   have   a right to
olaim   jnst  treatmont   as    peaceable,
law abiding residents of the Transvaal,
and that thoy do not  get.    They have
a right to demand that their children
shall be educated in the   English   language,   and   that  tbey   shall   not  be
robbed right and loft by taxes and imposts which other citizens are permitted to esoape.    These are the real grievances, against  whioh tbey have every
right to  protest, and to   proteot them
from  which tho  British   Government
would have unquestioned   warrant for
interfering.    We   suspect  it is  on account   of these and other  similar   oppressions,   rathor  than   tho franchise,
tbat President Krnger will be required
very shortly to mend his ways or suffer
the consequences.

was adjourned a month or two ago  on
the pretext that   members of the Government had   important  duties to   attend to that demanded   their   presence

bad to   do or could do at Ottawa  that
might not just as well  have been done

���   ANGLING NOTES,    f
������>���������������+������������������������������������������������������
Owing to my wilful dofinnoe of the
"eight hour" principle 1 have not been
able to wet my line this week. I cannot say that tlio temptation to do so
hns been very strong, for I have only
heard of two anglers who have done
anything at till wiih tho fly, One of
tliose, Mr. Aruiit, got six infantile
rish ono evening, the othor gentleman
burl ouly oue, but a good one withal.
Trolling at the Outlet for eliurr
progresses merrily aud I hear ol several sportsmen who intend to go to
Balfour for tho week end. Charr
iisliiug, though not exactly a scieutilic
branch of tho art, is nevertheless good
fun. It lcquires ono or two accessories to make it enjoyable, such as fine
weather, an interesting lunch basket,
liquid refreshment according to your
taste and capacity for tlio same, and,
lust but not least,   tho most charming,
must beautiful, most adorable ai.d
the rest of it. Trolling without a companion is uninteresting to say the least
of it. Tim more interesting that com
puniuu, the more so���at least so we
pretend���is tlio Ashing, Therefore
take hood that eliurr fishing in an
Eve-loss Edeu is undesirable; you
might as well spend the whole clay in
chureli, or at a Nelson City Oonnoil
mooting. What is the best bnit for
eliurrV Tbo best for trade is the largest aud most oxpousivo Phuiiton 01
Devon minnow you can buy. You
will probably lose it during the first
ten minutes fishing, so, if you aro
of a saving nature, borrow one, or bettor still, two, from a friend. If you
are neither philanthropic or thrifty
take a stroll up Cottonwood Creek
with a small mil and small flies, aud,
if you aro proficient in the art of tront-
lot stalking, you may fill your basket
with fingorliugs. In all probability
you will take several headerH over fallen timber sit down involuntarily in
the creek, break your rod, blaspheme,
and return empty handed. There are
plenty of small trout in the crook, bat
they are not to bo caught by everyone.
However if you manage to get, say,
it dozen you will have euough for two
days fishing.
Dry the trout and lay them on a
flat dish, then cover them over with
coarse suit. Now to prepare a flight
of hooks; this is easy to illustrate but
difficult to explain in writing. Get
four large triangle books, oue salmon
hook���about an inch und u half long-
and a foot of strong treblo twisted gut.
Tie a loop at one end ot the gnt. At
}he end of tbo loop, whin on with
waxed silk, two pieces of gut each
two inches long. At each end of those
two pieces fasten on a triangle. The
main piece of gut should be shortened
to nix inches. About an inch tioiii
tbe loop fasten on the salmon hook by
whipping tho shank with waxed silk
to the gut. Where the salmon hook
ends fasten on another pieco of gut to
equal in length the tail end of the
main piece of gnt. At tho end of this
piece, and also at the end of the main
piece of gut,fasten on a triangle. The
silk whipping should bo varnished ovor
in order to inako them durable. The
bait should bo attached by passing the
large salmon hook through tbe body,
so that tbe head reaches the lower
end of the gut loop. Fasten the head
to the gnt by a small stout nlastic
band (take several of these with you),
givo the tail end of the bait a bond
and catch the skin of its side with
one of tho tail end triangles, so as to
make the bait swim in the water with
a slight curve. This latter precaution
is important in order to insure the bnit
spinning well. A treble gut truce
with at least four swivels, sufficient
weight to mako the bait swim as near
the bottom as is possible without
latching "Britisbi Columbia" a short
STong rod and at least 50 yards of
stout line, and you are ready for the
fray.
This prescription for a spinning
"flight" provod very successful in
Lochs Rannooh, Awe and other well
known Scotch lochs, as a bait for sal-
mo-forox���the grent lake trout of Scotland. I believe I have tho honor of
being the inventor, and at several angling resorts in Scotland, where the
wily ferox may be met with, tbe
ghillies invariably use for spinning
a "flight" made according to my pattern   (otherwise   known   as "B 's
gum tickler"). The first "tickler" I
ever made was nt a place called Cross-
malina, a village in County Mayo,
Ireland, near a well known angling
lake known as Lough Conn. The
fronting ou the lake was excellent,
but there were days whon tbe sou'wester', blowing in from tbo Atlantic,
made fly fishing Impossible, and,
rather than bo idle, I would then degenerate and go a trolling for tbe huge
pike which frequented parts of the
lake. I had lost my last Phantom and
had to full buck on my own contrivances for a flight. There wore tioiib-
lous times then in West Mayo. The
natives of that portion of the Emerald
Isle, though currently (orronously I
think) reported to be thou wnstod with
famine, yet hnd sufficient strength
and endurance left to owe generations
of back rent, and, with a eertnin
amount of nccurncv nf aim, to now and
then exteimiiiato some brutal owner of
the soil.
The man who had   the contract   for
carrying   Her   Majesty's   mails,   wns
also a   land   owner   and  "gombeen"
(usurer) man.    He had  be3U   waylaid
bv a ' pathriot" when driving in   the
mail cnrt, had been   fired at ineffectually, had   in   turn   opened  fire on his
assailant, and hnd   potted him   neatly
between the   shoulders   with   a  Winchester.    This wns  of
ing to the   Freeman's
mnrder,   though
different view
tared ard sold 'potheen" (illicit
whiskey) and was renowned for his
frequent and glorious "drunks" which
ns a rule ended in the jail of Ball.nn,
the county town, Jimmy hud pity
oinio, told  me he had u  nimber 'f
ilights ami hooks at his bouse nnd finally persuaded mo to acoept bis hospitality for u day or two nud see what
tho fishing was liko at bis end of tho
lnko���some IS miles from whete I was
staying. To make n long story short
I went to Hlass Island, whore a fairly
clean cabin wns reserved for my exclusive use, nnd thero found a complete
store of hooks of all sorts. The "tickler" wns devised and given birth to.
I bun excellent sport with the trout
nnd, when the winds Mew, resorted
to the "ticklers" which secured me
some large pike.
My attendants���I had two, both tor
propriety's sake nud also because the
boat was too hoiivy for one to row-
wore Jimmy's daughters, brawny, unkempt, bare footed hisses thoy were
too. (Thoy wero exceedingly plain and
apparently fearful nf soap and wntor,
so no romance hinges on this portion
of the tale.)
The largest pike I got there weighed
82 pounds. I had him stuffed and tho
remains aro still basking in a glnss
ense iu some furniture repository in
London.
Jimmy congratulated me duly on
my capture, but, over tbe evening

we get at nil, nt. all, an' ono night I
hears a shplashing nn' thinks oue of
tho horses is in the lake. I gits up
nud raches tbo lough aud tboro was a
pike with a had as big as a cow's with
the bond of tbo old white mare in bis
jaw, sho bavin' jest come down to
diirink. Well I dhrivos him off with
the boat paddle, and ties up the old
mare's head with a sail. The next
day I fetches a grent mate hook and
puts ou it a young pig that had just
died by mishtnko. I gits in the boat,
tied tho hook to a rope and drops it
in the wather. Sure enough Mr. Pike
has him. And thin it was "usque a'
bragh" for about tin miles across the
lake, when I gets tired so jumps in
the wather puts mo arm round Mr.
Pike and dhrags him ashore. It was
tho biggest pike ye iver Baw and
weighed nearly 100 pounds. He
scratched me with one ot his tathe
us I was houlding on to him, and
made a hole at the back of my nock
big enough to put ray tongue
through."
"What did you do with him Jimmy?   Did you ent him?"
"Ate him is it? We lived on him
for n fortnight and sent the remains
to the workhouse. Onam nn djeoul!
bnt it   was   a ���   big pike."
The next day Jimmy drove mo in a
turf cart to Ballina, aud there we parted ; not forever though for I promised
to pay him another visit, and was, I
am happv to say, faithful to my promise. But the further adventures of we
twnin (together with sundry cooking
receipts) will be "continued in our
uext."

Tbe storm yesterday wns of unusual
severity. It iB not often that a thunder storm pusses so close over the
town. Though thoy are frequent in
the district about this time of tbe
year, causalities from lightening are
very rnro. The last recorded death
from lightening in the immediate
neighborhood occurred over two years
ago, A prospector was killed in the
Slocan on a chum known now us Dead
Man's claim. A piece of gnlena, which
the dead man had in his pocket at the'
time of the disaster, was found in a
molten state wheu the body was discovered,

Oompany will shortly bnild an office

Reports from the Delphine mine on
Toby Oreek are very satisfactory and
regular shipments will be made start
ing early in Jnne.
Work is being done on all of the
mines tbat oan be reached and a large
number of people are waiting to go
into tbe hills as soon as the snow will
permit.
W. G. Mitohell-Iunes of the New
Golden Syndicate of London, Eng., ie
working a number of men on the
Vulcan on Toby Oreek. He will
shortly resume work on the Pretty Girl
mine on a large scale.
There is every indication that the
Windermere mining distriot will he
tapped by a railroad in the near future.
The Great Northern railway and the
Great Northwest railway oompany's
already have surveyors in the field and
it is understood tbat the 0. F. It. will
shortly run a preliminary survey, when
it onmes to a show down the 0. P.

Jap group on Bouldor creek will, it
is understood be worked on an extensive scale  dnirng  the coming season.
The Morning Glory group situated
on Copper oreek tributary of Toby
Oreek, owned by Critohley Ellis, Jones
and Blookberger. It is a oopper proposition, has a well defined vein averaging abont five feet in width tbe
ledge can be traoed for over 5000 feet and

Recently a local contemporary stated
that only 500 miners had left the district owing to the cessation of work
at the mines. Mr. Wilks is reported
in the Spokane Review as having stated to a reviewer that 767 men had left
the Slocan. Add these to the men
who have left the Ymir and Granite
mines and tbe total will exoeed 800.
The said contemporary's statement is
a little inconsistent with the other j
figures.
��� *   *
Mr. H. A. Barton, managing director, in British Columbia, of the Wakefield mine, returned to town last night.
Mr. Barton hns been visiting the
principle mining oamps in the Slocan.
He informed the Miner that everything is very qniet there. The mines
are all closed down and the owners
seem prepared to wait.
Thu most important item of news
which Mr. Barton brings is that at
least two thirds of tbe entire number
of miners have already left the Slooan.
This goes to show that the majority of
the miner's there have little faith in,
or sympathy with the views of their
self-constituted champions.
��� ��   ��
Mr. Roderiok Robertson returned
from the Ymir mine last night. He
spoke cheerfully of the present sitna
tion bnt, beyond stating that the 40-
stamp mill was running at the mine,
ne had lttle news for publication.
