Fred D. Yuingling is again in -Inlaw's meshes. He was arrested yesterday morning by Deputy United
States Marshall Bernliard, charged
with embezzlement, says the New
York Herald of Oct. 11. Ho was taken before United States Commissioner
Alexander, upon complaint of C. Clivo
Bailey, acting Hritish Consul-General,
charged with stealing 8387.85 from a
brewery in Canada, of which he was
manager. The embozzlement had taken place last year between July (ith
and 18th. Yuingling was committed
to Ludlow street jail, pending tt hearing on October 22nd. Yuingling has
led a life of extravagance for years.
He was one of the moBt talked of men
iu the city and his conduct not infrequently landed hiin in jail, lie
achieved notoriety in 18U2, when he
was named as co-respondent in a divorce suit. "Fred," as ne was called
by his intimates, cut a wide swath
in the Tenderloin. His; father, David
G. Yuingling, jr.,was then a wealthy
brewer, and his son had for a time
sufficient money to satisfy] his extravagant tastes, lie was chiefly conspicuous for his habit of engaging in
street brawls, In which he usually
came off victorious. One of the battles was with a cabman in front of
the Fifth Avenue Hotel, iu October,
1802. He had a combat soon after
witli a man by the name of Webb, in
front of DelmonicO-i later be fought
witli the son of a brewer on the roof
of the Casino, and another time he
assaulted u lawyer's clerk, who had
served legal papers on him.
Thinking that change of BCene
might nltor his mode of living, his
father started him for Australia. He
got as far as San Francisco, and then
returned to this city, lie furnished
the financial backing for a woman
who had a desire to become an actress. She opened at the Fifth Avenue
in a play called "Deception." It was
aptly named, aud proved a failure.
Yuingling's father banished him
from home in 1.00. It was said that
"Fred" had given drafts to his father's cutsomers in  exchange   for cash.
When last heard from Yuingling
was in British Columbia, where he
was married to a young lady, and lived in Trail, 11. C,
When Mr, Bailey was Been at the
Calumet Club, last night, he said he
had acted upon instructions from the
British Consul ill Ottawa, lle knew
little of Yuingling's doings, he   said.
Yuingling was well known in Nelson, as he often visited this city, and
his life here fully bears out the story
told of him above, lie was fond of
spending money, with which he always seemed well supplied. His forin
was a familiar one on   Nelson streets.
The Kamloops Sentinel has some
further interesting details in eonneetion with the case.    It says:
Yuingling was well known in Kamloops, having lived here for two and
a half years, during which time he
acted    as   manager   of    the   Imperial
Brewery.   In   December   1898, he left
for Trail where he also became manager of a brewery. During his real
deuce here Yuingling was Somewhat
of a'"high roller" and cut quite a
dash, He was a very handsome look-
Ing fellow and deceived many by his
gentlemanly ways. It was here he
became engaged to a very estimable
voung lady, whom he later married at
New Westminster, They made their
home in Trail, and all went well for
awhile, till Yuingling thought ho
had enough of married life and Hritish Columbia; so, ono day last year,
he informed his wife that he was
obliged to go away to Ibe   States ou a
six months' business trip. It was arranged that Mrs. Yuingling was to
visit relatives nt New   Westminster,

said that when ho arrived heie at the
outbreak of ttie war lie found the
same spirit of determination to uphold the ilag and defend its rights
prevading the Colonists as lie found
when he was last here twenty years
ago. There was no doubt that if in
1878 Sir Bertie Frero had been Supported in the policy he had been dispatched from England to car.y
through, much misery would have
been prevented in South Africa. Fortunately Sir Alfred Milncr had been
supported. He was sure that the spectacles through which South African
affairs were now looked upon by those
in power in England were consderably
better than they wero twenty years
ago. From that lie deducted that the
sacrifices made and the misery endured
by the people, South Africa would be
a prosperous country under one Ilag.
Enormous enthusiastic gatherings
witnessed the presentation of addresses to General Muller in the afternoon.
In reply General Buller said he had
felt extreme pleasure in commanding
troops who had been trained by him.
lle paid high tribute to the devotion,
loyalty and bravery of the soldiers,
especially mentioning tlie South Africa light horse. He said that after

Nelson Tramway Company Has a Proposition Which Will Be Laid Before
the City Council.
At last night's meeting of the Hoard
of Works representatives of the
Tramway Company were present and
laid before the members a proposition
to light the city' streets. The company has considerable power that is
not being used and can offer it to the
city for tlie purposes of street lighting at a figure that will be much lower than that at which the city can
build and operate a steam plant, At
all events a steam plant in Nelson,
where hundreds ot thousands of horse
power go to waste quite near it,seems
somewhat redlculous. Tlie company
guarantees a thoroughly up-to-date
system of lighting that will really do
lighting and not stop half way, as the
present system docs. The value to
any city of good street lighting is too
evident to require commont. Nelson
is a city that should be especially well
lighted, as it in many instances the
sidewalks are very high and none
too well guarded,
The Tramway Company is operating
in Nelson under a very heavy expend
iture and is providing a splendid   ser
vice.    To reduce the cost of operating
by purchasing its   extra power would
undoubtedly be the means of effecting

Gallant   Men's   Deaths   Due   to
Emergency nations.
In a private letter to a friend received in Ottawa on the 14th instant,
Lieutenant E. VV. II. Morrison writes
of the emergency food as follows:
"It is very sad about young Borden ;
ho wns a gallant ollicer, and would
havo been mentioned in despatches if
lie had lived* As you say, the event
will soften the feeling against the
Minister on the emergency rations
scandal, but it was a disgraceful
thing for all that. To give a soldier
a useless emergency ration is like
throwing a useless life-preserver to a
sinking man. Tlie ration is never
opened, except in eases ot great extremity, such ns the 25th of July,
when we made a forced march of 21
miles to Balmoral in bitter cold. We
had started before daylight witli
hardly any breakfast, and got in at
dusk in a pouring cold rain.
"The transport convoy got mired in
a spruit Bome miles out,and the whole
army had nothing   to   eat  except   lis
emergency   ration.    We had   none, as
wc had found the   Canadian   lot   was |
completely useless, and  left the boxes
unpacked   at De Aar.    An officer and !
live men   in   our   division   died   from |
exposure thnt night, and I don't know j
how many more throughout the army. |
Nunc   of   our   battery died, but seven
nre in the Hospital   at   Pretoria   from
tlie effects of that night.    The   whole j
ration, even to the box and label, was!
su cheap and nasty that wc thought It
had been given to the   contingent   by
some llrin   as   a cheap ad.    Wc   never
imagined it was a   Government   affair
until we saw the row in the papers."
a reductfon in the fares which would
be money in the city's pockets. At all
events Hie city lias the matter in Its
hands, and could make a reduction in
the fares a condition of the granting
of the contract for street lighting.
The company also iutends to extend
and Improve its system and something
dednlte on this score might be learned before any bargain ie made. It is
understood that the company has not
yet announced what it will charge per
light per annum,.but in this connection it would be interesting to give a
few figures which show what other
cities pay for their lights. In Butte,
Montana, originally the cost was 8105
per annum per 3,000 candle power
light. The number of lightsjwas subsequently increased by 150 and the
cost thereby reduced to 8135 per
light. In New York, according to location, the prices range from 8140 to
81811 per light per annum. Sandon
has eight lights and pays 8150 a year
for each of them. It is understood
that Kossland pays g'.i5 but this exceedingly low rate was secured ou account of allowing the electric light
company to supply light to residences
and business houses.

prosperity of the community. It is
disposed rather to be straightforward, to hew to the line
and let the chips fall where
they may. The night before his
death, Henry George, the great American single-taxer, and at the time of
his death a candidate for the mayoralty of Greater New York, made a
speech to a large audience of working
men on the East Side of New York
City. He had been spoken of during
tbe campaign as the especial friend of
the working man. At the meeting referred to, during his speech, he paused for a moment nnd then exclaimed:
"I want it understood that I am not
the especial friend of the working
man. Let us be done with asking
special favors for any class."
There was a deathly silence for a
moment. Mr. George raised his arm
again and stepped to the front of the
platform, and in a voice that could be
heard by every man in the hall, exclaimed:   "I am for men"
And bo The Miner is for men,asking
speolal favors for none, but advocating that which it believes will bring
the greatest good to the greatest number. Therefore it advocates the election of Mr. MaeNeill, trusting and believing that he will sit on the right
hand of the speaker when next the
House of Commons meets. It may be
ignored by those who are conducting
Mr. MacNeill's campaign in Neleon
but when the votes are counted and
the successful candidate has been declared elected it will have the satisfaction of knowing that it has done
its duty and that too, as it has always
done, without "price."
Will the editor of The Tribune and
the editor of The Economist be able
to :.av as much?
Editor Miner:
Sir,���In your issue of yesterday, 1
uotlco.that Mr. Galllher takes exception to my remarks concerning hiB
meeting here, which appeared in your
iBsue of the 22ud. 1 stated in that report that he had used a veiled threat
("valid" is a typographical error) to
tbe Labor union. Mr. tialliher'B
words, of which I took particular
note and I have since confirmed, were
as follows: "If the Liberal party is
returned to power, even if I am defeated, I shall have the patronage of
the district." I cannot see the effect
of thiB statement as a reason why any
person sliould vote for Mr. Galllher
unless it be that he might hope thereby to have the benefit of that patronage. Mr. Galliher further asked:
"What position is tlie Labor party
here going to be is if they deliberately antagonise the man who has the
patronage of the district." If Mr.
Galliher deliberately asserts that he
had no intention of conveying a veiled threat or bribe in these words, I
am bound to accept his explanation,
with the reservation that I think he
should, as a lawyer, have known better than to use language susceptible of
such misconstruction, not only by his
opponents, but by many of his owd
party, who gathered the same impression as myself.

"Hello. Ja-k Chivington! Hello,
fhlvtwln!   Hello 1   Hello 1"
A voung fellow had just got out of
a cat iu front of the A.-itomira ho-
* J* At this curious sort of hail he
turned-and Baw a neat automobile
road wagon rushing by. The man In
it was waving one hand excitedly and
with the other slowing down the
Machine. Tho woman w th him was
mokln. buck, her face alight with interest The young fellow's glum face
broke into a smile of pleased recogui
Hon, and as the other man made a
skillful turn and biought his mauhlne
up to the curb, he stepped forward to
ahuke hands, saying: -.,...
Hello, Tom llutterworth 1   Olad to
lee vou old man."
���What in the name of all that's
curious brings you so far away from
hnme on Christmas Day?" began the
nan In the wagon, giving him some
nrtof cabullBtlc hand grip. "And
what makes you look Be glum? Hope
nothing's gone wrong. 1 say���hold
on���I've forgotten my 'Manners.
Hal Hal Mis�� Manners, allow me to
present to you Mr. John Chivington of
New York, one of the famous ' Chiv
twins' of whom you've heard go much;
my classmate at college, and my very
good friend."
"1 am pleased to meet you, Miss
Manners," said the young fellow,milling his hat and clasping a hand that
was small and warm and very neatly
gloved. "And I am proud to be introduced by such a past master of the
art There's only one thing wrong,
a.d this is that I'm the other twin."
"None of your nonsense, now old
fellow." broke In Tom. "I know
your tricks and ways. You can fool
every body else, but you can't put it
over me. I'm the only man that ever
could tell you two freaks apart.
You're Jack and I know it; and Jack
goes. Now, give an account of yourself, and do it quick. I want to know
all about it."
"Well, I've been West on business.
I've been delayod all along the trip,
and ended up by missing connection
here this morning. So I'm stranded
here in Chicago on Christmas Day,
when I expected to be at home. Isii'i
that enough to make a man look
"No, sir, it isn't. Now, look pleasant, please, while I tell you what
you're going to do. To begin with,
anybody should feel happy to be in
Chicago and even more bo on Christmas Day. Next, you get into that cab
and follow me home. We're going to
keep Christmas in proper style at our
house today. I'm just tickled to
death to have a chance to show
effete East how the Wild and Wooly
West celebrates. My better half 1b
up to her neck this very minute in
all sorts of schemes, and we're going
to have a houseful of pretty sisters
and cou.lna���of which the young woman here present is an average 'fair'
"Tom, I'm shocked at you. Please
remember that I am an engaged man,
and the most devoted lover iu sill
these United States, nut excepting Hawaii,Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philippines. Besides, a stranger at a family gathering is a regular kill-joy. Oo
away and leave me to my misery."
"Yes, I know Jlm'B tied fast to the
apron strings of the beautiful llessie
Lee, but Jim cuts no ice here. Get into that cab and come along.''
The young man was in the midst of
protesting that he couldn't and
shoulda'tand wouldn't go, when he
happened���just happened���to catch a
glance from Miss Manner's eye.
Whereupon he became confused in his
argument, was ignomlnously overborne
by hia friend Tom, and ended by getting into the cab and following the
automobile down Michigan avenue.

Lamps *__ Clocks.
DURING our Slaughter Sale, preparatory to our removal into the quarters
now occupied by the Canada Drug and Book Company, we have sold
at very low figures a large number of Articles from our Extensive Stock.
Lamps and clocks take up a large amount of room, and we have a lot
of goods at the depot which we must make room for, and during the next two
days we will cut the prices of our Lamps and Clocks to figures that will place
them within the reach of the family with the most modest income. We have
them in all styles, prices and makes, and so many of them that you will have
little difficulty in securing just what you want.
While this Special Sale is going on, wc will ��\
continue the Slaughter of all other Articles in our m
Jfl store. Wc are determined to open in our new m
J? location with a Brand New Stock, and to do this ii\
JJJ we will Slaughter Everything. m

"Ladies and Gentlemen," said
Tom, rising from his chair and looking aiuum1 at the merry faces about
the Christmas board, "fill up your
glasses again! I have another toast
for you���a long one,and a strong one,
one to make you see double. Ready?
All right; here goes'.
"Once upon a time old Mother Nature was in a jovial mood and proceeded to lay herself out to have some
fun at the expense of us poor mor
tals. So, when it came time to send
a stork to a certain chimney, she sent
two. Legend has it that the bundles
they earried were J so exactly alike
that even the Btorks got them mixed
up on the way. At any rate, when
the doctor and the nurse opened the
bundles they made haBte to tie a red
flannel rag about the neck of the contents of the first. Thereafter, aa I am
creditably informed, it was a ease of
red flannel or confusion with everyone except the mother. Here the
unit ner love taught in some mysterious
way to tell her twins sons apart. Hut
the father, after giving medicine several times to the well twin and spanking the temporarily angolic twin,gave
up the job in despair. In revenge he
named the lirst bundle James Adams
and second John Agnew, that they
might both write their names J. A.
Chivington and thus still further inflict a suffering community. Their
mother dressed them alike, and thus
equipped these twins Bet out upon a
career of comedy that was very cIobb
to tragedy.
"When they burst in all their glory
upon an astonished college world
there were high jinks. They passed
their examinations as one man, the
indignant professors refusing to waste
time on the same fresnman twice.
VVhen the true inwardness of the situation became understood there was joy
unfeigned In old South hall. One
tuition fee for the college and the
other for beer money I One twin to
call on the president for religious advice and the other to simultaneously
cut the chapel bell rope or spike shut
a recitation room door or to perform
without possibility of detection any
deviltry that the rest ot us could concoct I Two souls with but a single
body, two hearts that beat as one���
even to taking turns at recitations 1

"Why do you claim to be Mr. Jim
when Cousin Tom Bays you are Mr.

voice in the twin's ear as they silt
down to rest outside the ball room,
where the Christmas festivities were
drawing to a hilarious close. It was
a dim and shadowy nook, and a bunch
of mistletoe hung suggestively near.
"In self-defense," answered the
twin.    "Now, if 1 were Jack���"
"If you were Jack!" repeated the
girl after him. mockingly, HaBhlng

as foolish as might be expected of a

Lucy Manners, her face all alight with
delight and mischief.
"Why,   I've  got   to   confess   flrst^

"I should hope so I I don't want any

Sunday School Teachers Meet
in the Presbyterian
A Series of Interesting Papers
Receiving Attention
The lirst Siililitith School convention
of the Presbyteries of Kamloops ami
Kootenay under the direction of the
synod of Hritish Columbia was open-
ed   ni  the   st.   Paul's   Presbyterian
Chinch of this city at an evening session yesterday and; after having a
forenoon and afternoon session today.
the convention will conolude by an
interesting meeting this evening.
The convention up till this afternoon session has been a decided success and it is now intended ;to make
thej gathering an annual affair. It
<vas BUggested at the morning session
not to make the convention in the
c.iining years denominational, but to
Invite all ehurohea to send delegates
and hold a large union convention. It
was resolved that steps should be taken to hring this about. A committee
will be appointed to interview officials
of the other churches and see if the
necessary arrangements cannot he
made. It is not known when or where
the next annual meeting will be held
but it will be settled upon as soon as
the matter can be discussed with th
officials of tho other denominations.
The attendance at the session wns
fail and a deep interest was taken
by those present in the papers that
were delivered on the various appropriate subjects which had been previously selected. Kev. M. D. McKee, of
Slocan City, president of the convention, presided at eaoh session most acceptably, and Rev. J. A. Ferguson, of
Sandon, acted as secretary.
This morning's session which opened at 0 ::i(i with devotional exercises,
was a most interesting one. The first
address delivered was that by Mrs
M. D. McKee, superintendent of the
Sunday School at Slocan City, on the
subject: "How to Interest Parents
in the Sabbath School und Secure
Their Help in Teaching the Children. "
In her report she touched on the neglect of parents to their children, us to
Sabbath School work, and urged them
to take more interest in it. Tafitors
should also look after this work in
their visits to the families of their
parish. It should also be the subject
of ^discourses from the pulpit. Children's day should be emphasized nnd
everything possible should be done to
bring parents und children in close
touch with this good work.
Mr. I''. M. Chadbourn. of this city,
then lead a paper which he had prepared on "Tho Sunday School Superintendent and His Methods." He
pointed out that the superintendent
should not do the teaching but their
time should be taken up in instructing the teachers in the best methods
of imparting tbe truths to the children. Thoy sliould see that Classes
w.rc not interrupted in uny way nnd
that the best of hurmony sliould prevail. Muiso should he an essential
part   of   each   session of the   Sabbath
School. Superintendent! should provide for as much  entertainment for
the children us possible,such as socials,
picnics, etc.
The third and laBt address of the
morning session was delivered by
Mrs. A. 11. Men/.ies, of Kaslo. on the
subject: "Qualifications of Sunday
School Teachers anil How to Secuie
Them." Her paper had been well
prepared and was received with great
interest, She divided bei subject into three distinct points, character,
knowledge, and methods. Kaeh she
developed fully, stating that a teacher
should be of a good Chr'.staln  char-
iicli v. like the work.and love the children. As to knowledge sue said that
a thorough study of the lesson should
be made and that no lesson helps
should be brought to the class rooms,
Tbe best methods for teachers to follow was not only to take un Intel 'Ht
in the children in the class room but
look utter them anil take an interest
in them during the week. Teaching
should be done mainly hy Illustrations, Eaoh address was well discussed by those present and the main
point:: were made more emphatic
The opening session last evening
was well attended and a Strong interest was manifested. After the opening exercises a committee was appointed  to suggest  nominations for
ollieers for the Coming year anil they
made their   report   ut   this   afternoon
ReV. .1. A. I.ogan. of Kburne, was
lo have delivered the lirst address
but being absent it was delivered by
Rev. M. II. McKee, of Slocan. lie reviewed the work of the pust year, and
ulso  pointed   out   various   ways  und
improved in the future. Rev. R. Frew,
of Nelson, gave a most interesting
address On "The Bible Class and How
to Teach It." He told of the necessity of Bible study and how helps
should be secured by the teacher to
obtain facts from the lesson. The
main point of the lesson should he selected and then other facts grouped
about this central thought. He illustrated this idea by taking a lesBon
and showing how to develop it. At
the afternoon session the first paper,
which had been prepared by Rev. Joseph -McCoy, of Vernon, on the subject:
"How to Retain Hoys in the Sabbath
School and to Lessen the Hap Between
the Sunday School and the Church."
was read by Rev. Hector McKay, of
Kbolt, und was exceedingly clever and
discussed with great interest. Mr.
George Hradley, of this city, read an
article on "The I'se and Abuse of
Sabbath School Helps." During the
latter part of the afternoon session
Rev. (!. VV. Fortune, of Cranbrook,
conducted a question drawer, in which
there were many questions to be answered. The programme for this evening session which will open ut 7:110 is
us follows: address, "Importance
of Impressing Right Ideas upon the
Children," Rev. 1). I.. Gordon, Fer-
nie; address, "Relation of the Session

Mr. Joseph Morris, of Crow and
Morris, is in Nelson from Rossland
for the day. Mr. Morris says when
he left Rossland snow was falling
very heavily. Tf it has continued
until now," said Mr. Morris at noon,
"there must he about a foot and a
half there by this time."
Mr. James Connachor, a brother of
Mrs. Horace Hume, arrived in Nelson

Where he went to attend the Exposition. He wns quite pleusod with

The Times of Victoria says: A. E.
Mnc Hughton, who was manager of
the New Westminster team on their
recent tour through the East,and who
was in the city a few days ago, has
received a letter from the secretary
of the Montreal club announcing the
intention of the Easterners to come to
the Coast next year. Should arrangements prove satisfactory, the Mon-
treals will cross sticks with the Win
nipeg men en route. There is a probability of the Natlonls coming ulso,
in which case some great gnmes will
be played in (his part of the country
next season.
The Hall Mines smelter yesterday
paid to the lessees of the Bondholder
group, a cheque for twenty-two hundred dollars (82,-00.01)) for a carload
containing seventeen and three-quarters (1T%) tons of ore. This is net
after deducting freight and treatment.
The values per ton in silver were over
two hundrd und eighteen (21S) ounces
per ton, and; over seven (7) per cent
lead, and only one (1) per cent zinc.
This very high average keeps up the
credit of the granite belt of the Slocan.
The Bondholder group is situated
on the divide between Ten' Mile and
Springer Creek and the controlling interest is held hy Mr. R. C. Campbell-
Johnston. The vein from which this
ore was stoped is a most continuous
one, being traced through the Iron
Horse on Ten Mile Creek, through the
Enterprise group, a baby company of
the Loudon & H.C. (ioldfields, through
the Mabou, Ohio and llertie R., all at
present under bond to the Arlington
Mines, nnd which report Bays will be
put on the London market shortly;
then through the Bondholder group,
und on through the Murillo group.
On every group this vein has carried
very high values, and the mining men
in tlie know predict a most successful future to these mines.
��   ���   ���
Greenwood. B. C, Oct. 25.���The
past week four carloads of ore were
sent to the smelter from the Athlestan
mine, in Wellington camp, Shipments will be maintained throughout
the winter.
The management of the Marguerite
mine, in Deadwood camp, contrary to
expectations, does not propoBe sending
out any ore until the pyritic smelter
now under construction nt Boundary
Falls is completed, when all the ore
from this mine will go there. At the
mine croBBcutting from the main shaft
to two parallel ore bodies at the 100-
foot level is in progress.
Ore shipments from the Mother Lode
mine, in the same camp, to the Hritish Columbia Copper Compuny'H smelter nt (ireenwood amount to over SOI)
tons. ShipmentB will be muintnined
until the 3,000-ton ore bins nre completely filled.
It is reported on reliable authority
that shipping will shortly be Btarted
from the R. Bell, in Summit camp,
The mine is owned by the Miner
llraves people and Jack Hanly. Mr,
Hanly bus been In charge of the de
velopment.of which about you feet has
been accomplished. The ore will go
to the Oranby smelter.
John Dorsey has bonded the Hlue
Hell, in Summit Camp, from Thomas
Stack, Chris McDonald and W. Shuw,
on a basis of 840,000, nnd the J. S.
from II. Jernld for 827,000. The Blue
Hell bus ubout BO feet of development
nnd the J. S. ubout 00. Mining men
conversunt with the cluims speak
highly of them. Mr. Dorsey, it is
snid.is negotiating with Spokane parties for the sale of the properties.
Reports from Bolster, at the foot of
Copper mountain, in the Myers Creek
district, are most favorable for a lively camp this winter. The long tunnel being driven on the Review is
within 00 feet of tlie ledge. The
company has heen steadily prosecuting development for nearly two years.
Spokane and Greenwood operators
are interested in the undertaking, and
on the completion of the crosscut tunnel are prepured to fully equip the
mine with u suitnhle milling plunt.
A crosscut tunnel to tup the Buck-
horn ledge at a depth of 400 feet is
being run. It will require fully 400
feet of work to encounter the ore
body, which has been partially developed by prospecting shafts and surface
crosscut. The Buckhorn group is noted for its high-grade   copper-gold ore.
Ing been staked 20 years ago and
crown-grunted about 14 yours ugo. It
hns u strong continuous ledge averaging 810 to 815 in free milling ore on
the eastern cluims of the group and
almost any amount on the western
end, where the ledge carries free
gold. An old-fashioned mill was
placed on the group some time ago,
and this has proved one of the greatest drawbacks to the property, us the
plunt would not save values. The
owners have planned un extensive programme of work, including the orec-
tlou of a modern stump mill.

Some Justices of the Peace do not
know exactly where their powers end
and owing to this ignorance on the
part of two J. I'.s in Sloean City, John
Bulko, Jr., nine yenrs old, will leave
for his home at Slocuu tomorrow at
the expense of ller Majesty's Government in British Columbia. A month
or so ago the youthful llulko unlawfully did steal some property, to-wit:
three ducks, thut belonged to some
one else. He was arrested and appeared before Foley, J. I'., aud Hull, J.I',
of Sloean City aforesaid. To maintain
the dignity of; the law und to iuci-
dently protect the other ducks of the
town the J. l'.s sentenced Bulko, jr.,
to spend the next two yenrs ut the
reformatory ut New Westminster. Ue
wus brought to Nelson and has since
been an Inmate of the Provincial goal.
Davis, Bowes & Ward took up the
case and applied to tlie courts for the
release of the youngster on the ground
that the Justices of the Peace exceeded their duties in sentencing llulko to
the reformatory. The application
was made to Mr. Justice Walkem this
morning and the release of the boy
ordered. He is now free and will go
