GALLIHER THE MAN
��    Lih,-;
�����i,__
[It Will Be W. A. Galliher, M.P., and Nelson Will Have a
Citizen in the House of Commons.
NEWS OF THE MINES.
Close Fight in Which the Liberal Candidate Wins With
a Majority of Over 100,
Returns received in Nelson up to 2 o'clock show Mr.
Galliher leading Mr. Foley by 115 and Mr. McKane by
405.    The vote stands :
W. A. Galliher  2601
Christopher Foley   2486
John McKane   2196
There are in the district 150 polling places. About 35
if these are still to be heard from. They will not, how-
iver, affect the result.    Mr. Galliher is undoubtedly elected.
, The result of the polling in tho
Yale-Cariboo district yesterday makes
Mr. William Alfred Galliher, of Nelaon, memher-elect of the Dominion
House of Commons. His victory was
Hot as decisive as some of his friends
expected it would he, but the result is
totlsfactory to them and they are losing no timo worrying over dissapoint-
Juents in different polling places. The
One Burprise of the contest was the
��trength developed by Christopher Foley, the Labor candidate. In Rossland ho had a majority over the vote
0_ the other two candidates and a
plurality over Mr. McKane of nearly
300. In the Boundary he polled 250
-votes over Mr. Galliher, who came
next and 400 over Mr. McKane. In
the Nelson district Mr. Galliher lead
him by 100 votes. Crow's Nest points
gave Foley a plurality of about 50
over Galliher and abont 60 over McKane. In the Yale distriot Mr. Foley
ran away behind both Galllher and
McKane. Kamloops district gave Mc
Kane about 40 votes over Galliher and
Galllher about 170 over Foley.
At 2 o'clock today Mr. Galllher's
plurality over Foley was 115 and over
McKane 405. The points still to be
heard from In trie Northern portion
of the distriot will probably all show
small majorities for McKane or Galliher so that Mr.Galliher will do better
SflO. retain his lead of the present
��e.
In NeUon at 10 o'clock last night
there were returns from a sufficient
number of places to assure the election of Mr. Galllher, and his committee rooms were thronged with Liberals, Conservatives and Labor men,little interest centering in the other
committee rooms. Mr. Glllher himself, waa apparently the least concerned man in the City. But for the constant handshaking no one in his com-
mltteo rooms would have picked him
<Hlt of the hundreds as tho man who
was becoming more and more assured
with ovory return that he had been
chosen to represent In the Dominion
IlnuM- of Commons, the biggest district in Canada. A few minutes after
10 o'clock he bado his friends good
night and retired to his bed in the
Hume Hotel. When he appeared again
this morning it was to busy himself
for a short time in opening and reading messages of congratulation from
all parts of the Dominion. Then he
breakfasted and went up town and
since that time has been busy with
hiB big right arm grasping the hands
of his fellow citizens, Liberals, Con
Servatives and Labor men alike. There
are no hard feelings in Nolson in any
quarters and every man who shook
Mr. Galliher's hand this morning was
sincere   in his well wishes.
The Conservatives in Nelson, and
throughout the entire distriot,have no
apologies to make. In the face of
almost insurmountable obstacles Mr.
John McKane went into the fight fly
ing the Conservative Btandard. He
has been on the go day and night
since then and overywhere he went he
made votes. John McKane Is as big
�� man today In  the ranks of the Con
servatives of Yale-Cariboo, even in defeat, as he would have been had he
carried the banner to victory. He
took up what looked much like a forlorn hope and with his own unbounded enthusiasm enthused his suporters
and although third in the race is
only a few hundred votes behina the
winning man.
Christopher Foley, too, made a
splendid fight. He had the advantage
in the first place of an organ!.ation of
two years standing and was enabled
through this organization to secure
money sufficient for all purposes. In
JameB Wilks he had an able lieutenant in Nolson and Mr. Wilks Is to bo
congratulated upon tho splendid work
he did for his candidate.

the summary at the head of this
column, l
A. J. Marks came in from Now Denver to poll Ins voto yesterday, lie is
a very busy man these days developing the California, on Silver Mountain, back'of New Denver. Since lust
summer 000 feet of tunnels have been
driven on the property, making a total of 1,200 feot. There is oro in all
four tunnels, tho fourth is in 180 feet,
and 275 feet in doptli from the surface. In a drift on it a fine showing
of oro was struck last week. On Sunday another showing was uncovered
in the same tunnel. A raise will be
commenced from tho fourth to the
showing of ore in the third level.
More lumber and rails will go up to
the property this week. The force
will be increased in the spring, when
the mine will be a steady shipper.
Ore could have been shipped for several months past, but the manager
prefers to await the completion of better transportation facilities.
* ���   ���
Considering   the   amount   of   work
that has been put upon the properties
situated in the immediate vicinity of
New Denver, there is not a camp in
the district that can boast of a hotter
showing than this says the New
Denver Ledge. On Silvor Mountain,
while, in a comparative sense, very
little systematic mining has heen
done,yet the fact has been proven that
there are as promising bodies of ore
there as have yet been worked in the
Slocan. This can be said with equal
assurance of the California, Ilartney
and Marion. These are the only properties that have been operated on Silver Mountain this year by companies
with ample means at their command,
and in each instance the properties
have fully proven up to tho satisfaction of the managers. None of these
have yet entered the list of regular
shippers, but all have made satisfactory shipments and have in the aggregate about thirt}' carloads of oro now
on the dumps or sacked ready for
shipment. They also have much
ground ready for stoping and are in
a position to make regular shipments
when they make moro perfect their
shipping facilities. The completion of
the Silver Mountain wagon road will
be all that Is needed. Even in its
present state it is a great boon to
these mines and will enable them to
handle their ore at greatly reduced
cost.
The Mountain Chief, the pioneer
mine of New Denver and Slocan^Lake,
is still idle, but the ore is there in
all its richness and quantity and will
some day in the 20th Century resume
operations as of old. With the properties adjacent to it showing up so fa-
voiably it will ho taken off the hands
of the present owners, without n
doubt, aud mado the mine that it
ought to be.
The favorable development of the
prospects in the neighborhood of
these Silver Mountain mines proves
that, when thoy get into the hands of
moneyed men who can open them up
on a larger scale, many of them will
develop into mines of greater or loss
magnitude. The same may be said
of those on the lake shore near tho
Bosun, and those of Goat Mountain.
The work that has been put upon the
dry ore properties of Gout mountain
Is slowly demonstrating the existence
there ot a very valuable body, and il
is only a question of timo aud work
whon Now Denver will be able to
boast of somej-gular shippers of high
grade dry oro. _     _.__��
No. 2 blast furnace at tho Hall
Minos smelter will blow in on lead
ore tomorrow morning at (I a.m. The
ore supply is good   and cuniing   right
along.

Mr. W. R. Raiusdell, a prominent
mining man and promoter, who Is
largely Interested with I'. Mums In
several good mining propositions, ar
rived in Nelson last evening from
Bossburg. While there he visited the
First Thought property In which he
has an interest, and a description
of which was given in yesterday's issue of The Miner. He states that the
property Is showing up exceedingly
well. Its development is belug pushed with a good force of men and satisfactory returns are expectod from
now on. Mr. Rumsdoll Is also interested with Mr. Bums in Californlo
and Mexico. Ho expects to visit those
properties In the near future.
EEQARDING

Associated Boards of Trade
to Act on Mr. Sifton's
Suggestion,
Executive Will Meet in Nelson
Next Week to Consider
the Question.
Thero wil] be a meeting of the executive committee of the Associated
Boards of Trade of British Columbia
at Nolson on December 13, in the
evening at 8 o'clock. The executive
committee consists of the President,J.
Roderick Robertson of Nelso., and
the presidents of each of tho affiliated
boards,who are J.W. ll.Sniythe, Cranbrook; II. Hentley, Fernie; ,1. A. Harvey, Fort Steele; J. Gibb, Golden; T.
W. Holland, Grand Forks; C. S. Galloway, Greenwood; N. J. Hopkins,
Kamloops; G. O. Buchanan, Kaslo; J.
C. Drewry, Moyie; G. V. Holt, Nelson; G. W. Rumhergcr. Phoenix; II.
A. Brown, Revelstoke; C. O. Lalonde,
Rossland ; E. P. Topping, Trail, and
G. A. Ilendeison, Vernon.
The constitution ami bylaws of
the association say nothing on the
subject of proxies, but it is presumed
that if tho president of any board is
unable to attend this meeting that he
ean be represented by proxy from his
own hoard.
The meeting has been called at the
request of G. (1. Buchanan of Kaslo to
consider the following propositions:
' First. Shall the association approve
tlie proposal of tho honorable the
Minister of tho Interior for the appointment of special commission lo
enquire into tlio relations of the public policy of tho Dominion to the mining industry, including the transportation, smelting, refilling and marketing the ores aud their products.
Second. Shall the association take
any special stops toward tho presentation to such commission (if appointed) of facts or agruments or specific
suggestions.
Third. Shall tho association ask to
be allowed to nominate one or more
of the members of tho commission?
Fourth. Sueh other business as
may properly come beforo it.
In this connection Mr.Buchanan has
suggested a draft of two letters as follows:
lion. Clifford    Sifton, Minister of   the
Interior, Ottawa:
Sir: Referring to the published report of your statements made in Vancouver to tho effect that you would recommend to the Government the appointment of a special commission to
eport upon the subjects of mining,
smelting and refining ores,and tho relation, thereto of public policy. Sueh
commission to sit ut a very early
date.
I am directed by the exocutive
coun.il of our association to request
that in the event uf the appointment
of such commission that this association be allowei to submit for the consideration of the Government tho
names of a certain number of gentlemen from nmongst whom tho Government will select at least ono for membership in such commission.
Tho ground of our rcquoBt Is that
from out personal contact with and
Intorest in tho mining and collateral
Industries, and from the frequent
consideration given by out association to the problem to be dealt with
by sueh commission, we are, we
think, In a position to nominate
men peculiarly well quulitlod to Bit
upon such commission.
Hon.    R.    H. Fielding, M. P.,   Minister of Finance:
Sir: On behalf of the Associated
Hoards of Trade of Eastern Hritish
Columbia, I beg to bring to your attention a report published in The
Ilaily Province of Vancouver, of date
of November 25, 1900, In the report
tho Hon. Mr. Sifton, Is reported as
intimating that a special commission
will be appointed by the Dominion
Government to Investigate and report
upon the business of mining, smelting and refilling ores within Canada,
together with all collateral subjects,
inch as the transportation and marketing uf the product and tho relations thereto of tho customs tariff.
Such commission to sit Immediately
and  report  to the coming sosslou  of
parliament with a view to goverment-
al action upon such report within one
year.
There uro some features of the tariff
alTeetingz-tho mining industry whieh
our association has desired to have
brought to your notice before tlie
assembly of the nproacliing session of
Parliament. In the event of the adoption b}. tho Government of the policy
outlined by Mr. Sifton, viz., the creation of a commission to which all
such questions would be referred, 1
beg to enquire if you would be prepared to await tho report of tho commission and to embody the results of
its labors (if the same shall bo acceptable to the Government) iu tne tariff
legislation to bo recommended to Pai-
liament during tho session of 11101.
The adoption of that course would
afford satisfaction to our association
and I think, too, the mining communities which wc represont.
NEW YORK'S  POOR.
19,552   Persons   Were Helped   During
the Year Just Ending.
New York, Dec. 7.���The 57th annual
report_ of the New York Association
on improving the condition of the
poor has just been issued. It shows
that $20,000 was spent by the relief
department for 111,552 persons.
In the report of the board   of   man
agers, President T. R. Cutting Bays:
"Of some 5,000 oases investigated,
cared for, passed upon and closed during the year, tho cause of distress in
041 instances is set down us lack of
work; in 1,898 instances us illness;
the other causes operating wero shift-
lessncss iu 425 cases; intemperance in
.12; old age in :i07 and desertion in
1)21.
"Too often when we assign illness,
shiftlcssnoss, intemperance and desertion as the case, we know that the
tenement house itself ia the real underlying evil; that herding largo numbers of persons in contracted space has
resulted in abnormal minds and unhealthy bodies."

THE DAY IN   PARLIAMENT.
London, Dec. 7.���In the House of
Commons yesterday the speakers on
the Liberal side devoted themselves to
bitter attacks on Mr. Joseph Chamberlain. At last he arose to reply but
was given bad treatment by tho
House. Irritated beyond control by
frequent interruption! and disturbances, ho called one of the Liberals,
amid tbo excitement, a "cad." Thu
Speaker called him to order and Mr.
Chamberlain withdrew tho epithet,
apologizing for its use. After defending the publication of the Ellis correspondence, he was cut off by tho midnight adjournment. The Opposition
will move un amendment to the address setting forth grounds for an
early announcement of the Government's policy.
Among the other leading features of
the opening session was Mr. Balfour's
announcement that no member of the
Cabinet had ever said that he had
even dreamed that the Hoer Republics
would remain permanently under the
Crown Colony form of goverment.
That restricted phase of liberty, declared Mr. Ilalfour, will only be necessary as u temporary expedient. Sir
Henry Campbell-Bunnerman'B arraignment of the Government was long and
satirical. He doclared the Liberals
were perfectly agreed that the Boer
Republics sliould bo annexed to Great
llritain but said they wanted to know
definitely what tho Government proposed to do In the future before voting money. All loquests for iuforma-
ton elected frem Mr. Balfour nothing
moro than generalizations. Sir Henry
contended, therefore, the Opposition would oppose the progress of the
vote on supply.
At a late hour the Government laid
on tho table of the House of Commons
the supplementary war estimate. Tho
utmost secrecy Is maintained regarding It. but reports say that It asks for
thirteen millon pounds for South Afrl-
oa and three million pounds for China.
Sir Charles Dilke, It Is said, will
propose an amendment throwing a
part of tho cost of the South African
war on the Nclherland Railway and
the underground mining rights of the
Transvaal Government.

THE   ELECTION.
Although   The Miner   hoped   for   a
different result,   it   is   not   surprised
that  Mr.    Galliher   was  elected.    As
soon as it was known   that the  gene
ral elections in   the East had gone for
tne Oovernment   and   established the
Liberals  in   power for   another term,
the newspapers in Yale-Kootenay that
had   been   supporting   Mr.   MaeNeill
threw up   their  hands and said there
was no use in fighting it out, the constituency would go with the mojority
and stay on the   winning   aide.    This
was   equivalent   to a surrender,   and
the effect was bad. The leaders of the
Conservatives,     however,    were   too
courageous    to    give   up   without   a
struggle,   and when Mr. MaeNeill retired, for   reasons that   to   him   were
too imperative to be disregarded,  Mr.
McKane   was   named   the   oandidate.
It was a forlorn hope, but he had   the
pluck to face it.    If,   instead of three
weeks he had  been given six, Mr.McKane would have carried the constituency ; he made friends and gaiued support   wherever   he went.    But   under
all the circumstances success   for   him
was impossible.    He  made   a   gallant
fight, but against the odds   that   prevailed it was unavailing.
Mr. Gallihcr conducted a vigorous
campaign, and was himself a presentable candidatoj but he owes his election, not to hiB own abilities or to
the principles he was supoosed to advocate, but rather to the verdict of the
constituencies in the East. We h _ve
too many electors in Yale-Cariboo
whose politics are simply to be on ihe
winning side, and we have too many
newspapers that are actuated by the
same principle. They see nothing
higher in a contest between two great
political parties than the material advantage that may come from association with the successful one. That is
the only principle they can understand, and the only one to which they
are disposed to attach any value.
When they gave up the fight on receiving word ot the Government's success,
they encouraged many others whose
convictions are of the accommodating
sort to throw their support to the candidate of the winning Bide. Tbe time
was too short tn enable Mr. McICano
to overcome this tendency to throw
principle to the winds for the sake of
being counted with the winners, and
the reBult is that the Government
candidate is returned by u handsome
majority.
Mr. Foley had the support of his
own class, aud of thoBe others who
find It to thoir Interest to stand in
with them. They make no pretence
to political principle, excepting as
their own interests may be affected.
It is not the country but themselves
that they care for. We see from the
returns that they are a power in
Southern British Columbia, und one
that will have to be reckoned witli.
Many will see in their strength a
menace to the peace and prosperity of
the community. Nothing is moro
needed in this portion of the Province
than a campaign of education.
Whether it is possible to give steadiness to the public mind,and to induce
a spirit of soberness, we do not know,
but the need for it is becoming more
alarmingly apparent every day.
The "consensus of expressed opinion" in regard to the Fire Brigade
investigation, of which mention is
made in our morning contemporary,iB
doubtless gathered within a few feet
01 the editorial chair of Mr. Houston's
paper.       _________________________
Vernon, Kamloops, ami Revelstoke
voted for principle and gave Mr. McKane majorities. Nelson and Rossland voted for self. I'he newer towns
of liritisli Columbia have a good deal
to learn nf tlie higher aims of
politics.   	
After giving his powerful suppnrt
to the candidate uf tlio party whoso
convention he attended a short time
ago, Mr. Houston bestows his blessing on the Conservatives in this
morning's issuo uf his paper, casts a
beseeching smile on Mr. Oalliher,and
makes a pathetic effort to force himself back into the bosom of the Labor
party. Mr. Galliher may have some
crumbs to distribute, hence the smile,
and the vote yesterday convinces Mr.
Houston that the Labor party are
worth cultivating after all. There is
nothing to bo obtained from the Conservatives, and be dismisses them with
a cheap blessing. Mr. Houston may
not always know on which Bide his
bread is buttered, but if agility in
turning corners will procure it for
him he will got a taste of the butter
if it is only on the edges.

HEW THE LIBRARY.
I Directors of Free Library Ask For Assistance From Public.
1 Tliere is a probability tliat, unless
[the citizens of Nelson come to its aid,
[the Public Library will be forced to
���abandon the freo reading nnd recrea-
kion rooms   which   huve   been   for   a
long time   of   such   great   benefit   to
any   citizens.    The   attendance     at
;hese rooms has   been on   an   average
over 100 a day, so it   can he readily
een what a loss the cloBing up of the
rooms will entail   upon tlioso who nre
unable to provide their own reading
matter. It will alsn he a source of
greut regret in another direction, ns
these rooms linve furnished a place of
v Hinuseiiicnt for many men who, having no homes, would bo without any
Jlaee to spend the evening except nt
fpblic houses. This fact ulono should
mppenl to those who have comlortablo
homes of their own. For u long time
the project of tbo Library being taken over and maintained by the City
has been mooted but to no avail,
and tor a many months the directors
have beon successfully carrying the
institution in tbe hope that this
would be done, but all efforts in that
dirotion have been unsuccessful.
At a meeting   of  the  directors yesterday   the   treasurer   reported    that
me   were   not  sufficient   funds   on
to  carry   the   Library   through
present month,and for that reason
tbe directors   now appeal to   the public for assistance   iu   tbe maintenance
flf-the   institution,   as they   feel   thnt
tbey cannot contribute further   to   its
Import.    It   is   absolutely   necessary
__t funds should be obtained at once
khe   subscriptions   to   the   roaga-
lines and other periodicals must be reid this month. If this is not
HHbe the reading rooms will be without the proper supply of reading matter. This being the case it is hoped
that the citizens of Nelson will come
jffterally to the aid of the directors
%ho have worked faithfully nnd long,
andjilso given much, to keep the
Library on its feet for the past two
years.
I IChose who desire to contribute may
do so through the Librarian, Miss
Williamson, or any of the directors,
who are as follows: Mcsdames E. C.
fiithur, J. R. Robertson, 0. F. Beer,
fl. Bird, P. Lamont, 11. Langford and
���L. McCulloch, and Messrs. O. F.
W/ff. George Kydd, E. A. Crense, R.
���KBedloy, 11. Bird, (',. V. Holt, J.
H. Bowes and Fred Irvine.
Tbe cause is a most worthy one and
the appeal should result in many sub-
n&tial subcriptions.

A BATTLE ROYAL.
Fight Between a Deer   and   Cougar���
Hunters' Description.
JPrand Forks, Dec. 4.���A. B. Jones
anil John Sell,-.vho havo just returned
from a hunting trip up the north fork
of Kettle Kiver, tell of witnessing nn
unusual battle, the participants being
��� 'large buck and cougar. Their attention was attracted to the scene nt the
jBOment when the cougar launched
himself upon the buck from the limb
of a tree. He landed squnroly upon
th* buck's shoulders, almoBt thowlng
him to the ground. The deer recovered instantly, however, nnd a battle
royal commenced.
Throwing hia head hack, the buck
drove two prongs of his antlers into
tho cougar's body.and then with sawing forward threw him to the ground.
Iieaping backward he waited with
lowered head for a second attack. The
busters ran forward until they were
within 30 feet of the combatants, but
SO Intent were they In settling their
fend, they paid no attention to the intruders. The lmok bad not long to
watt for a renewal of the contest, for
with a roar of pain and rage the cougar sprang upon him. lie was deftly
caught, on the buck's antlers nnd
burled high In the air. When he
struck the ground the buck was upon
him, striking savagely with his fore-
fs.t, which cut like knife blades, and
driving his antlers iigniu and again
JBtto bis foe.
MUnally they separated, but only for
e.se.onil, for the cougar, by this time
blinded with blood, and almost dlsem-
bowleil. orawled forward for tho   final
death Btruggle.    This   time, however,
the hunters Interfered, and   shot   the
cougar through the heart.
.'The buok walked up to  him, struck
him a few times with  his   feet,   and
then after sniffing at him and satisfying   himself   that     the cougar    wab
{dead,   slowly  withdrew.     The   hun-
; terB, with that   Bense of rough justice
'which prevails   In the hills,   suffered
[ the   buck   to    escape   unmolested   by
them, agreeing that nn animal which
| eould  put up such a tight had earned
the right to live.
Tbe cougar was skinned, and the
hide brought to the city. It measured eight feet, three Inches from tip to
tip. The hide was so badly torn by
the buck's antlers nnd feet that It waB
useless for mounting, and the only use
to whloh It was put wbb to secure
17.50 bounty, which the Government
pays for the death   of these   animals.

WHAT  IS   LLOYD'S'.'
SEE VAN   I10RNE.
A short time ago a special writer
visited Montreal for the purpose of
securing material for several magazine articles, One was ou the Canadian
Pacific. To obtain this he interviewed Sir William Van Home. The next
Bubjeot on his list was the paper pulp
industry. He applied to a Canndiuu
paper company, nnd met with the re
ply: "If you want anything on that
subject, sec Sir William Van Home,
He is nt the head of the largest paper
pulp concern in the country." The
third item culled for information
about the new coal and iron developments nt Sydney,Cape llreton. A visit to Montreal resulted in this response.
'���Iletter see Sir William Van Home
lie has the largest interests there."
The special writer finally returned to
New York. A commission fiom u
prominent weekly figured in tlie mail
awaiting his return. It called for an
article on a new Cuban commercial
syndicate, ono recently organized on
a stupendous financial scale. The letter from the weekly paper ended with
these words:
"This information, in all probabil
ity, can lie obtained from Sir William
Van Home.  He heads the syndicate.
UNCONSCIOUS CONTEM l>T.
In a caHe of criminal libel that was
beard not long ago, a lady had gone
into the witness-box on behalf of the
plaintiff, whose counsel wns examining her. "Now. madam," the lawyer
began, "please repeat the slanderous
statements made by the defendant on
this occasions just as you heard
them." "Oh. they are unlit for any
respectable person to hear!"    was the
emphatic answer.   "Then," said the
examiner,   coaxingly,    "suppose  you
just whisper them to the judge."

The Greatest Insurance Agency in the
World.
Most of the members of Lloyd's
carry on business us brokers or underwriters on their own responsibility.
Asa corporation Lloyd's assumes no
financial liability for the failure of
any of its members or subscribers,
Hut it admits to membership only
men of reputation and means, who
must deposit a pecuniary guarantee iu order to become an underwriting and non-underwriting
member annual subscriber or un associate. An underwriting member must
deposit wtih .the Committee of Lloyd's
B.UOO or ��0000 on which he recieves
interest nnd which may be returned
to him three years after be ceases to
be an underwriting member. Ho pays
an entrance fee of ��4000 and an annual subscription of :JI) guineas. An
annual subscriber pays no entrance
fee, but an annual subscription of
seven guineas; an associate member
pays tive guineas.
There were in 1771 only 70 subscribers at Lloyd's. There are now
nearly 1,000.
The subscribers Intbe_olden time, us
now did not confine themselves to marine insurance. They were willing to
take a risk on almost anything.
There is still preserved ut Lloyd's a
policy on the life of Napoleon Bonaparte for one month at a premium of
three guineas per cent. Hank deposits
are insured in Lloyd's; also race
horses, and the lives of threatened
monarchs. A noted case was the covering of a lisk on a glass bed packed in
twenty cases for a certain sultan.
Lloyd's insured the Prince of Wales'
jubilee stamps, guaranteeing that the
issue would be successful. The voice
of a prima donna bus been insured.
A trndesmun in u London street who
bus an impression that a monument
may fall on his shop, has taken out a
policy at the nominal premium of two
shillings and six pence per cent. Gate
monoy for cricket and _ football
matches; animals of all sorts ashore
and ii.lbeat aie subjects for insurance;
policies against twins is a favorite
form of insurance. A well-known underwriter is said to be always ready-
to lay a thousand to one against
twins. Lloyd's issues Insurance
against burglary. Elephants are insured regularly. The life of the great
Jumbo, who came to New Y'ork on a
Monarch line steamship, was insured
in Lloyd's for the voyage to New
York. He was not insured when the
life was knocked out of him by a locomotive on an American railroud
whose tracks he was crossing. A celebrated singer recently took out an insurance in Lloyd's on the life of
Queen Victoria. She paid a big premium on account of the age of the
Queen. The reason the singer did this
wus not because she cured anything
more than moBt folks for the Queen,
but because her contract to sing
would have been abrogated by the
Queen's death, which would have
plunged England into mourning and
prevented the singer's appearance in

HANDSOME LADY DE GREY.
in an indiscreet ono in the suit
brought by Earl ol Durham for the
annulment of his marriage on the
ground of his wife's insanity, testimony boing produced in court to show
that the Countess of Durham's; dementia had been precipitated bv the
sorrow and exasperation caused by tho
violent flirtation curried on under her
very eyes between Lady de Grey and
Lord Durham. Thut it was nothing
beyond mere flirtation is best shown
by the fact that the Countess hns managed to retain until now the warm
friendhip and regard of the rrinccss
of Wales.

A London despatch says Lady de
Grey, wife of the only son and heir of
the enormously wealthy Marquis of
Ripon, will henceforth find the doors
of Queen Victoria's Court closed
against her���this in spite of the
friendship of the Princess of Wales,
which she has enjoyed for many years
past.
The action of the Lord Chamberlain in intimating to the beautiful
Countess that she can no longer ap-
pcur at drawing rooms, court bulls or
any other State functions, Is not because of any misconduct, but on account of the strict rule which the
Queen hns established In connection
with titled women who embark in
trade.
The Countess (a sister of Lord Pembroke, who, us Loid Steward, is chief
of the Queen's household, while another of her brothers married the
daughter of R. T. Wilson, of New-

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special prescription of Dr. A. Hoshee, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, removing, as it dons, tlie cause of the ail'ee-

and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test ot years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.

of the Goods to be found in all our Departments will make brisk selling for the next three weeks.

when they were at their best.
Whatever there is for ladies to
wear, made of Fur, will be found
in this department at very low
prices.
Handkerchiefs
Winter Gloves
You lose most of your handkerchiefs, the laundries wear out
the rest, and your handkerchief
case needs constant filling. We
have them from 5c to $7.50 each.
And Mittens in great variety.
The very latest style in Gloves is
the Suede, Castor and Mocha.
