Nelson,   British  Columbia. Wednesday,   February 13,  1901.
Eleventh  Year
Thinks the Government Will
Not  Last  Out  the
census returns are compiled a redistribution till will lie put through which
will adjust matters  equitably."
Mr. Ullmore touched on others matters briefly but the foregoing are the
principal features of his conversation
with The Miner man.
Present Administration Too
Much in Favor of the
Hugh B. Gilmore, M. L. A., of Vancouver, has been iu tbo city for several days having been summoned to
give expert testimony in the suit of
Fawcett vs. C. P. It. Ml. Gilmore is
an expert machinist and former superintendent of railroad machine shops
is conversant with the running (rear
of cars a point on whicli tbe case
lai-gely hinged. Apart from his business aB western representative of the
Waterous Engine works company of
Hrantford, Ont., from which the Pitts
road roller was purchased by the city
of Nelson last spring, Mr. Gilmore is
an active politician. He occupies a
seat among the eight members of the
opposition ii the local legislatuie and
takes a keen interest in the revolution
of the politioal wheels, Mr. Gilmore
is looking- forward with more than ordinary interest to the approaching
session of the house because he believes that the government is riding;
for a fall and that the closing of the
session will see the present opposi-
tionon the treasury benches.
"I am confident the government
will not last out tbe session," says
Mr. Gilmore and proeeods to explain
how he arrives at this opinion in the
following terms:
"The dissensions among the members on the government side cannot
fall to result in defeat unless their
affairs are patohed up which seems
altogether unlikely. The trouble
arose over the appointment of Messrs.
Turner and Eberts to tbe cabinet.
When it was seen that these appointments would not be countenanced by
the government supporters generally,
concessions were promised. A definite
promise was given, we were told, that
both gentlemen would be removed.
The agency general in London was
spoken of as Mr. Turner's billet nnd
rumor has it that one of the most im -
portant objects ot Premier Diinsmuir's
jaunt to Ottawa was to secure a
judgeship for Mr. Eberts. If both
these features are carried through
successfully the first and greatest
rock in tho course of the goverment
ship will be avoided. If the effort to
shelve the ministers to whom objection is taken should prove bootless, 1
do not see any outcome other tluin
a disruption of the government forces.
"Aside from this question I think
there is a strong feeling that the government is not what it promised to
he; that it is to all intents and purposes a return to tbe old Turner government. Tne piovlnce is being governed from and in the interests of the
island and the mainland will get the
cold shoulder. An indication of this
Is the effort by the island politicians
to take the sittings of the full court
from Vancouver to Victoria. It is
conceded that the bulk of the legal
business for the full court comes from
Rlie mainland and that the center of
business and population Is shifting
eastward rapidly, yet thu Island peo-
: pie want to move the court and there
' by compel the large majority of lltl
gants to go to the extreme limits of
the province, a proposition whloh I
regard as ubsurd. In many othor
respects the fine hand of the Island
element Is perceptible In the government programme,
"Should the government be defeated
I Bhould not look for an election.
With the numerous small followings
a new administration could doubtless
be formed but in event of an appeal to
the people 1 am confident the government would b.e defeated. The people
of British Columbia turned down Tur-
ncrism once lu an uninlstakeiiblc manner and It Is a safe wager that they
would repeat the trick with a govern
ment which is practically n return to
Tui-nerlsni. In this connection lt
is unfortunate thut the Kootenays have
not representation on the basis of population. The spectatcle of one man
representing 2,000 voters as compared
[with two members for 300 voters does
Impress one aB being fair. It Is
1 be hoped, however, tbat  after the
Two Small Parties of Britishers Captured.
Capetown, Feb. 12.���Twenty-seven
Australians, Cape police and dragoons
were captured by Krutzinger's commando eight miles from Ballaspruit
on February G, after a fight in which
three British and five Boers were killed. The British were afterwards released. Two hundred Boers are raiding the Prince Albert district, looting
stores and destroying orchards and
gardens. Several were killed and
wounded. Seven British Yeomanry,
while skirmishing, were captured by
a commando near Vryburg which
was forced to retire. Piet Dewet has
arrived in Capetown to engage the
Afrikanders in the peace movement.
Miss Minnie Lillie and Mr. W.
Jackson Hogg Married
The residence of Mr. and Mrs Robert Lillie, Lake street east, was the
Bcene of u pretty wedding yesterday
afternoon, when their eldest daughter
Miss Minnie E., was united in marriage to W. Jackson Hogg, city C. P. R.
freight agent at Rossland. The bride
is a charming young lady who numbers her friends in Nelson by scores
while the groom is equally well aud
favorably known having been connected with the C. P. R. here for sometime, prior to assuming his present
important post. The valuable gifts
showered on the bride testified to the
esteem in which she is held. Among
these was an unusually handsome
brass table with onyx top and a handsome parlor lump and set of vases to
match, the gift of the young people of
the Methodist church.
The ceremony was performed at 4
o'clock by Rev. J. H. White, pastor
of the Methodist church. The drawing room was decorated with flowers
and wus filled by some 30 guests,
the Intimate friends of the contracting parties. The bride was charming
ly attired in cream silk. She carried
whito roses and wore a valuable pearl
ring, the gift of the groom. She waB
given away by her father. As the
bridal party entered the drawing room
Mrs. W. G. Lillie played "0 Promise
After tho ceremony, the guests
wore entertained at Inneheon. The
happy couple left on the 0:40 train for
Rossland where they will reside.
The luncheon table was graced by
a turkey of royal dimensions and
when the bird was carved a letter was
found in it. By a strange coincidence
tho turkey appears to have come from
the same town as Mrs. Hogg. The
letter follows:
"Westport, Out.,  Dec.  10th, 1900.
"This turkey was ralBed on a farm
about a mile and a half from the village of Westport, Out. It was one of
a (lock of two hundred. Hoping that
it may make a good Xinaa dinner for
some one, I remain yours truly,

The action of Fawcett vs. 0. P. R.
came to a conclusion yesterday morning when defendants' motion for nonsuit was granted. Mr. Justice Irv-
ing's decision on the point of law involved in the matter iB contained in
the following judgment handed down
after yesterday's session of court:
At the conclusion of the plaintiff's
case the defendants moved for a nonsuit. I think I must grant it on tbe
ground,not of contributory negligence
which is a question for the jury to
determine, but because the plaintiff
bas not made out a cause of action.
As stated by Brett. M. R. in Wakelin
vs. London South Western Railway
Company, L. R. (1890) 10Q.B., 191:
"It is not a cause of action according
to the laws of England that the death
of the deceased person was caused by
tbe negligence of the railway company in the sense that their negli
gence wbb a cause of his death. In an
action for personal injuries through
negligence although it was shown that
there was negligence which was a
cause of the accident and without
which it could not have happened yet
if the plaintiff himself was also guilty
of negligence or want ot reasonable
care wbich contributed to tbe accident so that the accident was the result of the joint negligence of the
plaintiffs and defendants there is no
cause for action. The cause of action is that as between the plaintiff
and the defendant, the accident or injury to the plaintiff was caused solely
by the negligence of the defendants,"
that is to say it must be shown tbat
the negligence of the defendants was
the sole cause.
Now in this case the plaintiff ac
cording to the rules of the railway
was required to "carefully examine
couplings, wheels and running gear
of ull cars in tbeir train" (rule No.
83), and by rule 03, "to see that their
cars are In good order." before the
leaving of the train. This, to my
mind, compelled him to examine the
wheels, shoes of the brakes, brake
beams, etc., and ultimately the brake
wheel itself to see that it was in good
working order, that Is with safety io
tbe person using it. The cause of the
accident is not in dispute. It was tbat
the brake wheel was insecurely attached to the brake mast. There may
have been negligence on the part of
tbe company but there was negligence
also on the part of Conductor Fawcett
who was killed. He neglected to do
that which wbb prcsoribed by the company should be done for the security
of himself, of the brakeman who
might have to handle thut brake and
possibly of the passengers who would
be riding on the train. The case is
very much like that of Truman vs
Rudolph, 22 Ont. App. Reports 250,
where a master brewer sued his employer under the Workmen's Compensation for an injury resulting from
falling from a defective ladder which
it was his duty to Inspect. In that
case the master brewer saw the defect
and Instructed a subordinate to repair it but neglected to see that tbe
repairs were carried out and Mr. Justice Osier In delivering judgment In
the court of appeal says at page 254
"���the defective condition of the ladder was owing, as thiB evidence
shows, to the unfortunate plaintiff's
own neglect, not in the sense of contributory negligence, but neglect In
not seeing that the ladder was put in
a properly secure position. He was
the person whose duty it was to see
that this was done and his own neglect waB what led to the injury." A
judgment of non-suit was there approved.
"For these reasons I withdraw the
case from the jury and direct judgment to be entered for the defendants
with costs."

The Annual General Meeting
Was Held Yesterday
The Managing Director Submits a Most Encouraging Report.
The Imperial Development syndicate of this city is now in a position
to take a place in the front rank of
mining enterprises operating in the
Kootenays. The annual general meeting of the syndicate took place yesterday afternoon at the board of trade
rooms, the shareholders in attendance
representing 90 per e-��nt. of the stock.
The report of the retiring board
of directors was read and proved to be
of very considerable interest. After
touching on tbe organization of the
syndicate and reviewing the operations of the year, the report proceeded to give a lengthy extract from the
statement of A. H. Gracey, managing
director, regarding the development
work now being carried on at the
Eva, Imperial and Cholla groups on
Lexington mountain, Fisb river, Lardeau district. The three groups comprise 10 claims. Seven tunnels bave
been started at various points on the
property and with one exception all
were started in ore, and five of tbem
are now being driven as drift tunnels
all in ore. One tunnel is on vein No.
1, two on vein No. 2, Eva group; one
on the Imperial vein, and one on the
"holla vein, * the total amount of
lineal feet df development In tunnels
being over 500. The average values
in all the tunnels have been good up
to the present time, in some cases very
high. "It is very gratifying to have
been able to start this work," the report concluded, "and carry it on in
ore from the first stroke of the pick.
At this time the indications as a
whole are very promising and warrant the belief that we have a group
of properties of  exceptional merit."
The financial business included
the submission and approval of accounts. It was stated that the first
issue of stock had been over subscribed by 820,000, all of which the shareholders regarded as a matter for congratulation. The election of directors
resulted as follows:
Geo. Gillies, Toronto; Geo. Kydd,
E. Nelson Fell, W. W. Beer, E. C. Arthur, M. D., A. H. Gracey, F. Burnett, P. Lamont, A. L. McCulloeh, H.
Bird, Nelson.
The directors elect met Immediately
after and appointed the following
executive officers: George Gillies
president; Dr. Arthur, first vice-president; E. Nelson Fell, second vice-
president; George Kydd, treasurer;
A. H. Gracey, managing director; F.
VV. Swannell, auditor.
Sandon, Feb. 12.���The unsettled
state of tho smelter question is retarding mining operations in the Slocan
to a considerable extent. Some of tbe
mines have arranged with the British
Columbia smelters but It Ib found they
cannot handle all the output of the
country to the satisfaction of some
of the owners. The Whitewater, for
lustunce, has a lot of concentrates
sacked and piled up pending smelter
arrangements somewhere and other
propcitics are shipping part of their
output only.

London, Feb. 12. ��� Kimj Edward
and Queen Alexandra, according to
truth, will leave England during
March to visit the Dowager Empre9s
Frederick. As already cabled, they
will also visit the Grand Duke and
Duchess of Hesse and they will spend
tbe Easter holidays at Copenhagen.
Truth asserts that a member of the
cabinet, probably Lord James of Hereford, will accorapiiny the King.
Commissioners Will Consider
Question of Uniforming
the Police.
A meeting of the newly organized
board of police commissioners will be
held shortly, and one of tbe principal
items to be discussed will probably be
the matter of uniforming the police
force. At the present time the chief
and his staff have no regulations laid
down for tbeir guidance iu the matter of dress and are under no obligation to wear any mark of their position other than tbe shield. This has
led to confusion in various ways
Instances have been known of men
who Were not personally acquainted
with the offlcers.refusing to accept the
policemen's instruction and resisting
arrest when no difficulty would huve
occurred bad the officers been in un
iform. In other cases it has been stat
ed that people who have required the
services of the police have failed to
distinguish them on tbe street und
entered complaints where the officers
were not at fault. A further point is
that strangers who desire information
and naturally look to a constable to
furnish the desired pariculurs are
quite unable to distinguish an officer
from an ordinary citizen. Above all
it is felt that uniformed police should
be had in a city of the size and enterprise of NelBon where everything else
Ib In keeping with the reputation of
tbe place.
H. R. Cameron,one of the new com
mlssloners, holds views along these
lines. He believes that the time is
ripe to uniform the force, arguing
that such action would increase the
efficiency of the officers. He suggests
a neat blue serve uniform with white
helmet for day duty in the summer,
the helmet to be replaced by the undress cap at night. For the winter
months a beavy serge and belt, with
fur cap and overcout. It is thought
that 875 per annum would equip each
man and that the outlay would be
more than recouped by the additional
efficiency to be obtained.
London, Feb. i2.���A special edition
of the Gazette announces that by the
King's demand a special statute under tbe seal of the tinier of the Garter
shall be issued conferring upon the
Queen the title of "Lady of thut most
noble order." Lord Huberts' title is
gazetted as "Viscount St. Pierre and
Earl of Kandahar and Pretoria,"

been notified that Strathcona's Horse
now on their way to Southampton
on the transport Lako Erie, will sail
from Liverpool on the Nuinldlati,
February 23rd, for Halifax.
Montreal, Feb. 12.���It is altogether
likely that the annual convention of
the Canadian Press association, which
was to have taken place here February
14-15, and was postponed a month on
accountof the death of the Queen, will
be called off for tho year.

Chinese Emperor's Solution of the
Present Difficulty.
Pekin. Feb. 12. ���Prince Ching and
Li Hung Chang have received a long
despatch from the court which they
have not disclosed to the foreign envoys. It is understood to contain in
addition to the recent celebrated reform decree un account of how Emperor Kwung Su has sent a choice of
methods of suicide to all those named
for punishment by the envoys, closing
with tho inquiry whether Prince
Cbing and LI Hung Chang think the
envoys w ill be satisfied.
It Is understood that the Chinese
plenipotentiaries in their reply to the
court said the foreign envoys could
not ulij -ii strongly to an accomplished fact, but that they would probably
insist upon the sentence of execution
being published throughout the empire und possibly upon the heads of
these condemned being exhibited at
various points. It Is very seriously
doubted in Chinese circles here that
General Tung Fu Slang will agree to
commit suicide. The army worships
him. He has absolute control of the
Mohammedans mid is believed to* be
one blrntelf. He refused to allow the
disbandment of his 5,000 men and the
emperor ordered him from the court.
To attempt his execution, lt Is
thought In Chinese circles, might
mean civil wur. This morning, the
foreign envoys met and considered
the question of quarters for the legation guards. The matter of indemnities wus also mentioned, especially as
bearing upon the damage done
to the personal property of foreigners.

The proposal to establish a railway
commission meets with favor in some
quarters. If one is appointed, the
question will at once be raised���who
will be appointed to watch it'.'
It never rains but it pours. Suffering from the ravages of a terrible
war. South Africa is now alrlicted by
n visitation of the bubonic plague,
the dread disease having obtained a
foothold in Capetown.
Mr. F. J. Deane; secretary to the
Chinese Commission, is making a tour
of the province collecting data to lay
before the commission at its approaching sessions If he finds any two opinions amongst the people of this province regarding the undesirablity of
Chinese as residents we shall be very
much surprised. The appointment of
a commission was an unnecessary
piece of work. The province's representatives in the federal house were
competent to lay lull and complete information before the government if
the latter wished to enact remedial
legislation. But commissions seem
a governmental weakness, so one was
appointed. It is to be hoped that
some good will result from its enquiries and deliberations. If the Lauriei
government wishes to act in accordance with the views of almost the
entire population of liritish Columbia
it will prohibit absolutely the immigration of Chinese and arrange to
kill off���if any legal way can be devised to accomplish that act���every
mother's son of the almond-eyed, pigtail wearers living at present in the
province. The Chinaman is a cursd to
any country inhabited hy white men.
He is a filthy, immoral piece of human machinery���not a man in the
sense in which the word is used
among civilized peoples. He lives like
a dog, contributes nothing towards
the upbuilding of the country and
poisons every community in which he
locates himself. But if he were absolutely perfect in bis moral conduct,
cleanly and law-abiding to the fullest
degree, he is nevertheless a curse to
the country. Why? Simply becuuse
he works at a rate of wage which
makes white competition impossible.
If tbe Chinaman were brought into direct competition with the white
man in all fields of labor, what would
happen the white man? He would
simply die. He could not live. That
assertion can be proved up to the
hilt. During the visit to the coast a
couple of years ago of one of the eastern Canadian Press associations, a
lady who was in the party said to a
gentleman with whom she was conversing: "I don't see why you people
out here arc opposed to the China
man. He is such a good servant,
works so cheaply and is so industrious. 1 don't see bow you could.gct
on without him." liy a very simple
argument the gentleman convinced
her that the Chinaman was a curse to
the country. He said: "Let us take
the case of a shoe factory In Montreal
or Toronto employing 200 men at,
say, $1.50 per dav. T'be foreman
walks in one Saturday, discharges ull
the men and tells them he has engaged
a number of Chinamen from the Pacific coast to do thoir work at 75 cents
per day. Would the white men have a
grievance against the Chinaman,and if
bo what is their remedy?" The lady
hasn't answered the question yet.
Tin- Chinaman is a curse to this
country. That sentence seems about
the strongest which can be written
in denunciation of him, therefore it is
repeated. The government must some
day rid tho country of that curse. If
they do not do it the people wbo
make and unmake governments will
do It for them. That is all there is
about it. Commissions may come and
commissions may go, but the question
will never be settled until the filthy
Mongolian is told to pack up bis kit
and "git." White men will stand
tramping on up to a certain limit, hut
when they see themselves robbed of
legitimate opportunity to labor so
that they may place bread in the
mouths of their wives nnd children,
there will be such action taken as will
engender a belief in the minds of the
legislators that the people have not
entirely surrendered their right to say
how they Bhall live.
This is perhaps strong language.
Well, the situation demands strong
language. The "Chinese question"
has been fooled with long enough, it,
Is being fooled witb now nnd will continue to be fooled with just so long as
the people of this country refrain from
expressing their  -fesllngs on the unit-

Canadians are not generally regarded as a blood-thirsty race of people,
but that opinion will perhaps have to
be revised if recruiting for Baden-Powell's horse continues with such persistency as has been tbe case during
the past few weeks.
W, W. B. Melnnes, M. P. P., is on
record as saying that there will be no
change in the leadership of the Provincial opposition this session. Mr.
Melnnes don't know any more about
that than anyone else. It's always
the unexpected that happens.
Mining men will be interested in
the report which comes from the coast
to the effect that a very rich strike
has been made at the Lenora mine on
Mount Sicker, Vancouver Island. The
pioperty is situated within a Jew
rnileB of Victoria and is considered to
be very valuable.
The new board of police commis
sioners will shortly give consideration
to the question of uniforming the city
police. If this should not prove too
expensive a step it ought to be taken
at once. Nelson seems big enough
now to have her guardians of the
peace appear in uniform.
Provincial Health Officer Fagan bas
gone to Ottawa to lay before the government some information about the
danger which menaces the health of
people who eat Chinese vegetables.
Here's a chance for another commission���"Commission on Carrots" it
might be called. Applications^ for
the secretaryship should be forwarded
to Ottawa at once.
The proposal chat an Imperial conference of representatives from all the
Self-governing colonies and the mother
country should be held during the
present year in England is a very sensible one. The interests of all portions
of the Empire are now identical in so
many ways that it is highly important that a thorough understanding
should be arrived at.
His lloyal Highness the Duke of
York will sail from England about
the first of March for Australia. He
will probably extend his cruise to

A Financial Agreement, In the Nature ot an Experiment, That Was
Sealed In Smiles and Not Lous After DUaolTed In Tears.
It was her private opinion that he was
cot a good business man, and possibly she
was right.
"I cau handle the family finances better than  you," she wns accustomed to
say, and she said it so often tbat he finally told her to try it.
"I'll have my personal account at the
bank put in your uame," he suid, "and
will proceed to stand from under.    All
hills, everything thnt pertains to our living expenses, shall be attended to by you.
I will draw a certain amount each week
for such personal expenses as lunches
and car fare, but you shall hare entire
charge of everything else."
Naturally she was jubilant. She hadn't
put in ton years telling him hew ht could
save money without getting the Idea that
she .knew something about it. It toek a
little time to have his book written up
and the account transferred to her, but
finally one evening he brought home a
nice little checkbook aud told her it was
all arranged.. Then ht instructed her in
the mysteries of drawing checks, warned
her not to overdraw tbe account and retired entirely from tht business management ef their joint affairs. Just about a
week later slit met him at the ollict late
one afternoon aud went to dinner with
him. They had a good dinner, just such
a dinner as they had had on prerious occasions when they had taken diuner together down town, and she enjoyed it
thoroughly until he pushed tht check for
It over to her.
"What's th'nt for?" slit asked.
"Pny It," he said.
"Well, I guest 1 won't do any such
thing," she returned warmly. "You pay
It yourself."
"1 haven't anything to do with It," he
Insisted. "You're the enshier. You've
started In to show me how to keep expenses down, and naturally you'll lind It
ns trick at all If 1 pay your bills. When
1 was making you an allowance for your
Incidental personal expenses, 1 never expected you to pay for dinners you took
with me, did IV"
She pnld. She felt that the was being
chentcd in some way, but she paid, and
then she suggested sarcastically that slit
supposed he would expect htr tt pay for
the theater tickets too.
"Certainly," he replied.
"Well, then, we won't go," tht laid.
"Just as you say," ht rtturned pleasantly.   "You're the financial manager."
The ride home wat not an especially
enjoyable one, although ht itemed to be
in excellent humor. She was Inclined tt
be morose, and ihe had not entirely recovered her equanimity when ht reached
home the following evening.
"A hill for a do-sen ihirts came todsy,"
she snid shortly. "1 don't stt why they
addressed It to me."
"1 charged them tt yon," ht explained.
"I'm not running any accounts these
days, you know.  Did you pay ItV"
"No, 1 didn't, and 1 won't."
"Oh, you'd better," ha urged.
"Well, I won't," sh�� aniwereil decidedly.
"You wouldn't have your poor husband
sued by a haberdasher, would you7" ke
naked.  "Just think how lt would look."
"Well, how da you luppost I am going
to save money if I hav* to keep paying it
out like this?" she demanded.
"1 could have saved money myself if I
hadn't had to buy for both of ns," he
"Well, It Isn't fair; that's all I can
say," she exclaimed, but she paid the
bill, although she did It under protest.
Things went along with comparative
smoothness for a few dsys after this,
and then one morning one ef the children asked for 98 cents to get a school-
"do to your mother," was the reply of
the man who had abdicated as the head
of the house.
"But 1 haven't any change," she pretested.
"A cashier should make It a point always;* to hate change," he tald. "You
surely can't expect me to buy the children's schoolbooki out ot my pocktt
Sho snid he was a mean thing, but she
had to gtt the change. The following
Sunday they all went to take dinner with
a relative in another part ef tht city, and
she had to pay the street car fart on two
lines of cart for tht wholt family. Then
one night when they were caught out iu
the rain sht had to pay for the carriage
that brought them home, uud she remarked rather bitterly that money just seemed
to melt away. He admitted that ha had
had somewhat that same experience with
It when he was handling the cash. After
that she paid tbe bills for two morning
paper* that he took, for cleauing and
pressing a suit of clothes, for a new hat,
for four neckties aad for two palri of
rubbers that ihe thoughtlessly asked him
tit get for tht children.
In time tht begaa to brood aver these
matters. It seemed to her aa If ht were
always asking for money In trifling
amounts to pay for things that tht had
never been bothered about before or elst
was bringing home bills. And somehow
In some ways ht did not seem to be as attentive as he had been formerly. St It
happened that one night he found her tn
the verge of tears.
"You used to bring me home flowers
occasionally," she said, "and you never
used to let me go out anywhere without
them, nnd���and���and when we went to
the Browns for dinner night before last 1
wns the'only woman there without a corsage bouquet or a flower in her hair. You
don't know how badly 1 felt, but I was
too proud to say anything about It."
"Why, my.dear," he protested, "1 didn't
know you wanted nny flowers."
"You know I always like flowers," she
retorted. "I'm passionately fond of them,
nnd���and-you've never forgotten thnt before."
"But you didn't give mc nny money to
get tkeni with," he explained, "and I
didn't feel like charging them tn you."
For a minute there wns doubt ns to
whether ii would be tenr,s or flashing
eyes. . Thon she went over to her little
desk, picked up her checkbook and threw
It on the floor at his feet.
"Take your old checkbook!" she exclaimed. "I don't want to have anything to do with It I don't want to nian-
a?e nnytiing"~
"Except me," he pnt In.
And  tbe next  nlgbt  he brought her .
home a fins large bouquet of roses.���Ne* j

������������Ill From tbe Aaimal'a llcela.
A Rood giraffe skin is worth from $10
to $20 in South Africa and much mors iu
Bui-ope. On their hunting trips 10 or 13
rears ago it was a common matter for
oue banter to kill 40 or 50 of thess graceful animals in one dny. The reason for
this is that the giraffe is the most innocent of animals and easily hunted. They
are absolutely defenseless, and there is
hardly u case on record where a wounded
���tirade, turned upon the hunter. It Is
true, they have great powers of speed,
and they can dodge rapidly from tree to
tree iu the woods, hut they offer such a
fair mark that these tactics hardly ever
save them.
Not until It Is unusually frightened
docs the cjrnffe make its best speed, aud
then it Is often too late, for the hunter
is upon It. There is really no element
of danger connected with this sport,
and that makes lt less exciting and attractive to a true sportsman. Under certain circumstances it is possible to be Injured with the powerful legs of the giraffe, which are capable of kicking a
blow that would kill a lion. The latter
beast, fur this reason, takes good care to
attack the giraffe at unexpected mo-
It takes a good horse to run down a giraffe, and if the least advantage is permitted the wild creature the race is lost
Its peculiar gait is very ungraceful and
deceptive, but it covers the ground with
remarkable facility. In the open veldt
the hunters have always the best of the
race, but tha giraffe, when surprised,
makes instantly for the forest, where
tough vines and Intermingling branches
make travel difficult for the hunter. The
bushes and thorns tear and lacerate the
skin of the horses, but the tough skin et
the giraffe is barely scratched. Tht
creature will tear a path through the
toughest and thickest jungle and never
suffer ia the least.
This skin, or hide, of the animal Is Its
chief article of value. No wonder that
the bullets often fall to penetrate this
skin, for it Is from three-quarters to an
Inch thick and as tough as it is thick.
This skin when cured and tanned makes
excellent leather for certain purposes.
The Boers mal-.e riding whips and sandals out of the skins they do not send te
Europe. The bones ot the giraffe have
also a commercial value. The leg bones
are solid Instead of hollow, and in Europe they are in great demand for manufacturing buttons and other bone articles. The tendons of the giraffe are so
strong that they will sustain an enormous dead weight, which gives to them
pecuniary value.���Scientific American.
Weird Effect of Phosphorescence) ���>
a Ship In Bering Sen.
"I have often beard of the wonderful
phosphorescence of southern sens," remarked a traveler from the north, "and
I have seen some pretty fair samples of
it in the Atlantic between New York and
English ports, but I did not know until
recently thnt It prevailed to any extent
in northern waters.
"Last August 1 was on board a revenue cutter in the Bering sea, about 63
degrees north latitude, bound north,
when one night about 10 o'clock I happened to go on deck, nnd I was almost
frightened by the sight of the sea. Tbe
wind was blowing sharp enough te'raise
tho whitecaps, and the whole sea looked as if it wero lighted from its depths
by a million arc lights, throwing their
whito rays upward and under the flying
foam. The hollows of tho waves were
dark, but every crest that broke showered and sparkled as if it were filled with
light. From the sides of the ship great
rolls of broken white light fell away, and
she left a brpnd pathway of silvery foam
as far back as the eye could reach.
"But about this hour was the most
striking display. Here It was as if tbe
ship were plowing through tbe sea ot
white light, and as the water was
thrown back from ber prow It fell in glittering piles of light upon the dark surface beyond aud was driven far down below, lighting the depths as if all the electricity of the ocean were shooting its
sparkles through the wares and turning
itself Into innumerable incandescents
that flashed a second and then shut out
forever. I stood on the forecastle deck
looking down into tho brilliant white turmoil of the waters until I began to feel
as if we were afloat upon some silver
sea, and a really uncanny feeling took
possession of me. The white ship was
lighted by the phosphorescence of the
waters, so that as high up as the deck
there was a pale, weird white that made
one feel as if the 'Flying Dutchman'
were abroad upon the seas and had passed by us. The masts towered in ashy
gray above the decks, and every rope and
line stood out distinctly in the light, but
cast no shallow. It was all as ghosUy
as if we had gone up against the real
thing, and it was a positive relief to get
back into tho wardroom, where there was
something more human. I don't know
how long It lasted, but when I went to
bed at 11 o'clock I co Id still see the silver shining through the air port In my
stateroom."���Washington Star.

Leslie looked up inquiringly.

The Iron Dukea Speech.
I once heard the Duke of Wellington
mnke a speech in the house of lords, anil.
although it wns but a short speech and
not remnrknble for eloquence, It astonished nnd impressed me more nt the time
thnn the greatest orntion by the greatest parliamentary orator could have
The duke, as I gathered from the
speech of another peer, hnd already been
offering to the house his opinion on. the
measure under considerntion, and the noble nnd learned lord was now criticising,
his remarks. In the course of his criticism this noble nnd lenriiod personnire
ventured on the observntiiffi thnt he fenr-
ed "the illustrious duke" tint] hot quite
understood the measure novi- before the
house;   This drew the illustrious duke,.
The Duke of Wellington sprang to Ida
feet to reply, nnd he struck the tnhle
with indignant gesture. "My lords," h>
snid, "the noble nnd learned lord has
snid thnt I don't understand this, bill,.
Well, my lords, nil 1 can say Is tilnt I
rend the bill onee, thnt I rend it twice,
thnt I rend it three times, nnd if after
thnt I don't understand the bill, wHy;
then, my lords, nil I hnve to say Is that
1 must be nn infernally stupid fellow!"
Then the duke resumed his sent.���Justin McCarthy's "Reminiscences."

Ona Pound of Grape-Nuts  Wakes More
Flesh! Thau  Many  Pounds of
Ordinary Food.
It is worth while to find a food that
will put two pounds a day on the
frame of an invalid that has been reduced to a skeleton. A lady in Mid-
dleton, Ind., says: "For more than
fifteen years I have been more or less
of an invalid. The doctors said general debility was the trouble brought
on by overtaxing the nervous system
and the digestive organs. Then finally
la grippe and pleurisy set in, lasting
about ten weeks, and I was reduced to
a skeleton of less than seventy pounds
in weight, not withstanding I was being fed on meat and ordinary food.
"My relatives were telegraphed to
come quickly if they would se^ mc
alive. At this time I was put on Grape-
Nuts food, and found 1 could eat it
and that it suited my taste and I
began at once to gain in strength and
weight. My weight increased about
two pounds per day. I resched about
one hundred pounds which is heavier
than I had weighed for more than
fifteen   years.
"Friends who saw me on the street
stared at me as though 1 had risen
from the dead. I shall always be
grateful for the good Orape-Nuts food
has done for me. I shrink from having my name published if you should
use this letter, but am willing to
write to any one concerning these
statements, if in tbat way I can benefit suffering humanity in the slightest." Name will be given by Postum

Mr. .1. .1. Walker, the jeweler, announces in today's Miner, that he is
now prepared to receive the citizens
of Nelson in his new store on the
corner of llaker and Stanley streets,
the premises vacated at the first of the
year by the Canada Drug and Hook
Co. Mr. Walker started In the jewelry business in Nelson Sept. 1, 1897.
As is the nature of all beginnings he
started in a modest way in the small
store adjoining the Broken Hill block
on llaker street. Hy judicious advertising���always in The Miner, by the
way���strict attention to business, and
good treatment of his customers his
business grew to such proportions
that the old quarters were much too
small. For a year he had been unsuccessfully seeking other quarters. Then
came the building of the K.-W.-C.
block and the removal of the Canada
Drug & Hook Co. This was Mr.
Walker's opportunity and he leased
the store in the Elliot block for a
term of years. His new fittings are
now all In placo and his stock displayed and the store is one of the finest
in Western Canada. It is a credit to
Mr.Wnlker and to Nelson and is well

The city engineer is preparing figures on the cost of putting a side door
to the firehall in order that the hose
wagon can be backed into the building from the level. Under existing
clicumBtances it is impossible for the
team to handle the three-ton wagon
on the steep grade leading to the main
door. At the next council meeting,
however, Alderman Madden will recommend that the entire main building
be lowered to the level of Victoria
Btreet. His argument is that this
course is the only practical solution
of the problem, and that as it will be
done sooner or later the council may
as well go ahead with the work#now.
