of Cottonwood creek. The claims are

WILL MEET
AGAIN TONIGHT
the next month or i,.���,  .     LlBr
Within the next few months the
Finch-Campbell Syndicate will take
steps to place their Second Relief property in tin Whiskey Creek country on
a producing basil. This constitutes
one of the moot Important items on
the year's programme for the Nelson
mining district, inasmuch as it will
add a big mine to tbe list of producers
located in the section of which Nelson
is the natural commercial center. It
is safe to predict that the Second Relief will win a great reputation for it-
self, and in the oourse of this the surrounding section will naturally benefit
to an extent which it is impossible to
foresee at this time.
Tbe history of the Finoh-Campbell
people's connection with the Second
Relief is a record of mining on business principles. When they acquired
the property in the fall of 1807 it wns
a prospect with a showing above the
average. Tbe syndicate started in to
develop the proposition and have been
at work almost steadily since. Their
expenditure to open up the ground
represents an outlay of 8100,000 and
they now have a mine in every sense
of the word. The next step, that of
constructing a reduction works, has
been determined upon and will bo put
into tffect when operations can be
carried on under favorable condition.*!.
A twenty stamp mill"' is one of the
,V -I Items on the programme, with   which
it is proposed to handle in the neighborhood of 75 tons of ore daily. The
qro is only partially free-milling, and
the concentrates will be shipped to
one of the smelters. The fact that the
Nelson & Fort Sheppard road Is now
connected with the C. P. R. may result in bringing this ore to Nelson for
treatment, but the management has
not reached that, stage in its plans
Where the question of smelter treatment has been seriously under consideration. The property is connected
with its shipping point at Erie by a
wagon road. On the completion of
this road 400 tons of ore was shipped
to the Nortbport smelter and the net
returns were 840.00 per ton after deducting a 97 rate for freight and treatment. Tbis shipment was made for
the express purpose of defraying the
cost of the road hence the ore wns
more or less carefully sorted. The
management figures that its ore body
will average {20, this result having
been arrived at after careful invest!
gatlon. The vein is four feet in width
and the result of the large outlay in
development naturally is that tho ore
In sight aggregates a very large tonnage. R. K. Neill, of Spokane, who
has been tho syndicate's right hand
man or the past eleven years, was in
Nelson last night after a visit to Erie
and gave the foregoing information in
the course of an Interview.
The Finch-Campbell syndicate has
also taken hold of the Keystone property on Whiskey Creek bonded last fall
by A. L. Davenport, Spokane, formerly of tbe Poorman mine. Work is proceeding on this claim at tho present
time, and while at Erie Mr. Neill
went over the workings. He states
that the showing has fallen off somewhat with the depth now reached, but
< does not regard this as  a   positive in
dication that further depth will not
dlsolose a showing to excel that on or
near the surface. The Importance of
these operations will appeal to the
wholesale men of Nelson who will indirectly supply the provisions for both
properties. At the Second Relief upwards of 75 'miners will be employed
and as further work is done on tbe
Keystdnc the crew thero will be materially Increased.
���   ���   ��
ON THE ALBA^GROUP.
Owners Will Begin Work on the Property at Once.
Frank Dick of Slocan City and Paul
Orcelgerbiehl of Nelson leave today
to recommence work on the Alba group
t>f  claims,   The property  is located
all tin assessment work in one place.
The vein on which the shaft is sunk
carries gold values, assays having
been had from 840 to 8200. The lead
is narrow on the surface but promises
to widen consistently with depth,
and the owners expeot to make a turn
on the property next spring.

AT THE HIGHLAND.
New
Successful Trial Run of the
Concentrator Yesterday.
E. R. Woakes, local manager and
engineer of the Highland mine at
Ainsworth, returned yesterday from
the propei ty. The concentrator is
���ow completed with the exception of
a few details. Yesterday a trial run
was made and the machinery ran
smoothly. It is expected that the
plant will now run continuously. The
concentrator will handle 100 tons a
day, and this will enable the mine to
ship about 500 tons per month. Regular shipments will be started about
February 1st when the ore bins will
be filled with the product of the mill.
��� ��� ���
VERY   GOOD ROAD.
Crawford Creek Wagon Road One of
the Best In Kootenay.
Cold weather has restored the wagon
roads throughout the district to excellent condition and it is probable
that the thaw will not effect the movement of ore to any appreciable extent.
John McVeigh of the firm of Poupore
& McVeigh, which is teaming ore
from tbe London Consolidated property to Crawford Bay.is in the city today. Referring to the new road Mr.
McVeigh says: "I have never teamed
over a road_which was as good as tbe
Crawford creek road has been since we
started bringing down ore from the
Silver Hill mine. The grade is only
ri'i per cent, nt the heaviest point and
the amount of ore we can handle in
a load is only limited by tbe width of
the right of wny. The lightest team
in our stables handled five tons ot ore
regularly and the load for one of the
heavy teams was 7% tons, these loads
being handled with ease."
GOOD PLACE FOR WINE.
It Costs Less in Dawson City Than
Whiskey.
The Yukon is a good country to stay
away from according to the report of
a former Nelson man who has been
in Dawson for some time. In a letter
to a friend heie the Dawson man
states that work has been closed down
on a large number of properties, experience having pioved that the
ground could be worked to better ad
vantage if operations were confined to
the summer months and machines
used. As a consequence a small army
of men are out of work. Crowds of
idle men can be seen, he says, about
Dawson and nine in every ten are
"broke." Hundreds of others are
working for board and lodging only.
In business circles tbe conditions are
but little better. Restaurants are
closing constantly nnd saloons are not
far behind in this respect, while gen-
earl report about Dawson baa it that
eveii'thc gambling houses are losing
money. A peculiar condition of affairs
has arisen In eonnection with the saloons. It eventuated that saloon men
had laid in an over supply of champagne and the result is thnt wine is
selling at 83 a bottle while whiskey
is still 85 and 80 per bottle. The letter was written on December 21,when
the sun had not been visible for several weeks.
Adjourned Annual Meeting of
the Nelson Board of
Trade.
Many Important Matters to
Be Considered���Election
of Officers,
The adjourned annual meeting of
the board of trade takes place tonight
and it seems likely that, tbe session
will he largely attended. The first
business on the order sheet is that of
electing officers for the year. At the
last session nominations were made on
the understanding that these would
be open for further additions tonight.
Tbe other items on the programme
arise in connection with notices of
motion given nt the last meeting. In
one instance the motion calls for a
change in the meeting night fiom
Wednesday to Thursday. It has been
found that a Wednesday night meeting coniilcts with the Masonic and
other fraternal orders whose night
was tixHii before the board altered its
regulai sessions from Monday night,
and in view of this it is considered
only fair to make another change to
Thursday night.
The second motion to come up is
also of considerable importance. It
provides for an amendment to the constitution whereby business firms will
be eligible for membership in the
hoard with the privilege of nominating two representatives, only one of
whom is entitled to vote at any one
time. Ry this means a fairly large
attendance will be assured at board
meetings from among the business
houses alone and the effect on the
board's prosperity during the year is
likely to be very marked.
Other matters of interest are likely
to come up in the course of the meet
ing, and it is not improbable that
some further effort will be made to
secure an improvement in the method
of handling the eastern mail between
Spokane and Nelson.
The nominations for officers In tbe
gift of the board up to tbe present
time are as follows: President, Mr. G.
V. Holt; vice, president, Mr. Allan,
Mr. Chapman, Mr. Byers; secretary-
treasurer, Mr. Swannell; council���12 to
he elected���Mr. Sherwood, Mr. J. R.
Robertson, Mr. Martin, Mr. Tierney,
Mr. Bannerman, Mr. McLean, Mr.
Hamilton, Mr. Marks, Mr. Evans,
Mr. Byers, Mr. Robert Robertson, Mr.
Morley, Mr. Chapman, Mr. Macdonald, Mr. Fletcher, Mr. Allen, Mr.
Prooter, Mr. Lay, Mr. Lamont, Mr.
Hillyur, Mr. Campbell.
MURDER AND SUICIDE.
Anntston, Ala , Jan. 10.���E. K.
Shaw killed his wife last night by
cutting her throat and attempting suicide in the same manner. The couple
were under guard at a restaurant on a
charge of swindling when the tragedy
occurred. A letter was found addressed to Mrs. J. F. Smith, Crown Point,
I nd., stating that Shaw left to her all
his personal effects, some property in
Florida, and a 83,000 polioy of insurance. The oricide will be held on a
charge of murder.
HE KILLED HIMSELF.
Troyes, France, Jan. 16.���It was discovered today that the man Coquard
who last Friday when pursued by the
police, shut himself in his house and
threatened to kill anyone who approached,had committed suicide in the
meantime.
LOCATED AT SEATTLE.
Defaulting C. R.P. Clerk Arrested Ba
low the Line.
Vancouver, B. O., Jan. lfl.���The
missing Andrew Mcllwain, until recently in the C. P. R. service at Calgary, has been located at Seattle. Mcllwain was "wanted" for obtaining
money from the company by the simple but unlawul process of carrying on
the payrolls tho names of a number of
"ghosts" who only materialized long
enough to sign for their money and
then went back to the othor side.
The exact amount of the shortage Is
not known, but It Is supposed to he
somewhere in the neighborhood of
81,500.
The manner of Mcllwaln's capture
is shown in the following despatch
from Seattle:
Detectives Lane and Phillips late
yesterday afternoon arrested Andrew
Mcllwain at tho request of Canadian
Pacific railway officers at Calgary.
At the police station Mcllwain
broke down completely and admitted
to Chief Meredith both his identity
and guilt. He assigned poverty ns
the cause which prompted him to commit the theft and expressed a willingness to return to Canada without extradition.
Mcllwain was arrested by Lane and
Phillips in a beer hall at First avenue
and Columbia streets just as he was
leaving the place after having eaten
his supper. The detectives arrested
him upon two warrents, the substance
of which had been wired to the city
by Canadian Pacific officers. The technical charge in both warrants is forgery, though in reality they were i��-
sued in consequence of the sums which
Mcllwain obtained by successfully
carrying upon the pay rolls the names
of a ,ufnher of fictitious employes.
Upon ue pay roll, a copy of which
was forwarded to this city, appears
the names of five men and opposite
their names memoranda certifying
that they were paid amounts for labor
performed innging from 818 to 830.
Mcllwain entered the service of
the Canadian Pacific railway on May
4, 1888, as a laborer at 81.50 a day,
but in a short time was promoted to
the posttion'of fuel inspector and subsequently to the post ot clerk to the
superintendent at Calgary. He worked in this position until January 1,
when he came to tbis city and an investigation of his accounts by his successor revealed the shortage, the exact amount of whieh, though estimated to be over 81,500, la not known.

WATTERSON'S APPEAL.
His Article on Relations of U. S. and
England Attracts Attention.
New York, Jan. 16.���An article by
Henry Watterson, of the Louisville
Courier-Journal, On ("The relations of
the United States and England," is
attracting much attention in London,
according to the Tribune's correspondent. It is considered a strong appeal
to the foreign office for the acceptance
of the senate amendments to the new
treaty. Copies ot the articles have
been sent to Lord Lansdowne, Arthur
Balfour, Joseph Chamberlain and other members of the Cabinet. The points
on which special stress is laid in this
article, are the statements that the
senate bas not added anything Lord
Salisbury would not bave sanctioned
if he had been consulted in advance
by Secretary Hay; that no Eulgish interests are touched hy tbe amendments, that Lord Salisbury by accepting the revised text, can lay the
foundation of a friendship between
the two nations more enduring than
any allowance and tbat there are
strong reasons for a better understanding and a working agreement betwt-en
the United States and. l<ln-gland.
TROUBLE IN   VENEZUELA.
Cable   Company    Makes    Significant
Announcement Re Censorship.
New York, Jan. 16.���The West Indian and Panama Cable Co. last night
made a significant announcement in
connection with the dispatches from
Washington saying that Venezuela
had seized two foreign steamships. It
sent out advices that messages to Car-
upiiuo, Pore Lamara, Cumanaguant,
Barcelonea and Cludad Boliver, Ven
ezuela, would be taken subject to delay and censorship. The censorship
undoubtedly is a military measure.
All of the places are far to the east
of the region in which recently the
rebels were defeated. As the force of
Pera were driven westward, the revo
lutionary inovoment, which is given
as the reason for the seizure of the
steamers, is probably a new one. Ex
President Andrade, who was lately
in Porto Rico planning to lead a re
volt In Venezuela, it is said, may have
caused the rising.
ON THACK AND FIELD.
Yale and Harvard to Meet Cambridge and Oxford.
New York, Jan. 10.���The World
says Yale aud Harvard will meet Oxford and Cambridge on track and field
agnin and the athletes of the American universities will try to wipe out
tlie defeat they suffered at the hands
of English students in tho summer of
18110. Preliminary arrangements have
been for some time In tbe hands of
prominent alumni of all four universities and are now well advanced but
great secrecy has been maintained by
all who are in anyway connected with
the proposed meeting. Mr. E. J.
Wendell, nn enthusiastic Harvard alumni to a certain extent expressing
his Alma Mater in the matter, said,
last night, "Personally I am heartily
in favor of such a meet, but I can tell
you abdolutcly nothing about it."
WHAT WESSELS
THINKS OF IT
CHANGE IN EXPRESS SERVICE.
Portland, Ore., Jan. 16.���The Ore-
gonian says: The Great Northern Express Co. will withdraw its service
from Portland next Sunday, the 20th
and quit tbe lines of the Oregon Railway & Navigation Co. Since the Union Pacific now rules in the affairs of
the Oregon Railway & Navigation Co.,
tbe Pacific Express Co. bas the preference. The separation of the express
business in this territory is said to
be evidence that the two railroad magnates, Hill and llarriman, are not so
close together as many supposed them
to be.
Boer Envoy Says Invasion of
Caps Colony Is Well
Planned.
Capt. Dutch  Will  Join the
Invaders and Demand
Independence.
Montreal, Jan. 16.���A Kalamazoo,
Mich., dispatch says, P. L. Wessels,
tbe Boer envoy, gave out an interview
yesterday stating that much had
transpired in Cape Colony which the
publio was not aware of. The fact of
the British repairing the defences of
Cape Town, he says, shows their apprehension. "I am firm in my conviction," Wessels said, "that the invas
ion of Cape Colony is the result of a
secret understanding with General
Dewet, effected by his commanders
under tbe British cannon at Worcester. " He says that once the Transvaal
Boers get into tbe Cape they will be
joined hy thousands of the Dutch.
This would assure the success of the
Boer cause. The Boers would then
demand that England allow the organization of the United States of
South Africa.
KRUGER IN   NEW YORK.
He is Expected There About the Middle of February.
London, Jan. 10.���The Daily Express says: Mr. John Mulholland who

an invitation from a number of well
known New York citizens to Mr. Kruger to proceed to the United States,
has been to see him and has offered
bim a palatial residence in New York
City. In the^'courso of an interview
Mr. Mulholland told a representative
of The Dally Express, that he was
quite sure Mr. Kruger would accept
the invitation and would go to New
York about the middle of next month.
DEWET GETTING DANGEROUS.
The Hague, Jan. 10.��� One of the
members of ex-President Kruger's
party here talked regarding the alleged murderous treatment of a British
subject who went to General Dewet
with a prosposal of surrender. He said
that it was suUiile for a man to carry
such a proposal to Dewet from Kitchener. Long ago Dewet witnessed the
burning of bis farm and the confiscation of his cattle by Kitchener's men
and then and there, according to a reliable report, he swore he would kill
the British general.
DEWET AFTER BOTHA.
Kronstadt, Orange River Colony,
Jan. 10.���The success of the Burghers

of the G. T. R. securing connection to
British Columbia by controlling the
Wisconsin Central railway to Duluth

POSTPONED   FOR A;WEEK.
Paris, Jan. 16.--Judgment in the
De Castelalne-Wethcrimer suit was
postponed today for another week
About May 1 next, the Miner-Graves
syndicate will take the initial steps in
the development of the Rockland
group on Eight-Mi lo creek, the outcome of whijh will be to establish
what is likely to be the greatest mining industry in the Slocan. The expenditure of 875,000 in development
end the construction of a smelter on
the ground to treat Rockland ores are
the principal features of the syndicate's programme. The Rockland
group comprises two full claims, and
a fraction aggregating about 110 acres
of mineral land. Tbe property came
into the possession of Frank Watson,
one of the best known mining operators in British Columbia, with whom
was affiliated Judge Splnks of Vernon.
These gentlemen put considerable
money into development and devoted
time and attention to securing clean
titles to the ground. When this was
in shape the proposition was presented to Mr- Miner and was taken up by
the syndicate on the strength of a report from their superintendent, W.
Yolen Williams, who is said to have
described the Rockland as "the
biggest copper property in the country." Mr. Watson and Judge Spinks
retain a third interest in the property.
Tbe agreement governing the sale
provides for tbe placing of 875,000 in
the treasury for development and for
the commencement of operations by a
certain date about three months hence.
Work will be carried on under the
direction of Mr. Williams.
The Rockland is a gold-copper proposition, the values being carried in
sulphides, which alto run about an
ounce of silver to the ton. It is ���
Strong feature in the enormous ore
body the extent of which has not yet
been determined. When Messrs. Watson and Spinks operated the property
they drove across the deposit for 95
feet encountering ore all the distance.
Drifts were run in both directions
from the tunnel and tbe ore continued
in place. Thorough sampling indicated the presence ot a 22 foot pay-
streak averaging 817 per ton and that
the ore body for tbe entire width averaged 88. Tbe values are about equally
divided between (old and copper.
A year hence the programme of development will be completed and the
smelter proposition will have advanced
to a practical stage. With a view to
tbis contingency the syndicate has
staked the entire (low of Bear creek.
This gives them 300 miners' inches of
water at the extreme low witter mark
and as a descent of 1,000 feet can be
secured in the immediate vicinity of
the smelter site, malting a water power of rare utility. This power will he
used next spring for a compressor
plant.
Altogether the proposition is decidedly tho most Interesting of the day
und its Importance to the section of
the Slocan In which the Rockland Is
located cannot be overestimated.
Further particulars of the matter will
ho awaited with keen   Interest.

Mr. Kruger is going to visit New
York next month. He has been offered a palatial residence in New York
City and will be wined and dined by
the wealthy Democrats. Mr. Stead
will act as bis press agent and the reporters will talk with the Englishman
instead of the Boer. And, incidentally,
the Americans will form a very poor
opinion of British patriotism as it exists in the hearts of suob Englishmen
as Stead.
"Governor Stanley announced that
he would tomorrow offer a reward of
8500 for the apprehension of anyone
implicated in the lynching of Alexander at Leavenworth. " Tbis is the last
paragraph in a frightful story coming
from one of the important cities of
the State of Kansas. The story tells
of a negro burned at the stake. He
had been identified by an excited wo
man as a man who had attacked ber
and he was therefore immediately accused of the murder of another young
woman who had been similarly assaulted. Tied to an iron stake, his
clothes saturated with coal oil and
dry wood piled about him, he declared with all the vehemence of a doomed
man that he was innocent. This was
followed by cries of "Burn him ! Burn
him!" He asked to see bis mother
but she was not one of the infuriated
mob about the stake and his request
was not heeded. Then John Forbes,
tbe father of the girl who had been
murdered, struck a match, "As the
flames leaped up," the dispatches tell
as, "Alexander tnrned a ghastly
hue, and clasping his hands together
began swaying to and fro, while the
crowd yelled. Five minutes later the
negro was hanging limp and lifeless
by the chains that bound him." Then
comes the governor of the state and
offers a reward as outlined in the
opening paragraph above. Eight
thousand people saw John Forbes
strike the match and apply It to the
clothes of the negro. They also saw
the negro* chained to the stake. They
saw the men who carried tbe wood
and the coal oil. But Governor Stanley's reward will stand and the authorities of Kansas will be unable to
secure tbe name of one man implicated in the outrage.
LE ROI  MINING CO.
Proceedings nt the Meeting Held on
December 28.
At an ordinary general meeting of
the Le Roi Mining Co., held in London, December 2H, the following, according to tho British Columbia Review, was a part of tho proceedings:
Mr. Murray said that they seemed
to havo taken out of tho mine about
(MOO.OOO worth of stuff. He thought
the shareholders ought to lu intorinci!
as to what became of all the enormous
productions from the inino. (Hear,
hear.) Somehow or other they dwindled away. (Laughter, and hear,
hear.) According to the position of
affairs in June Inst, the company was
insolvent���(laughtei)���for, at that
time, the profit nnd loss account
amounted to ��101,000.
Mr. Harris said that the report waB
a most voluminous one, but the information it contained was very meagre. (Hear, near. He complained
about tho sending out of the report
only 24 hours before the meeting
was held. The shareholders, he added, ought to have had it in time to
fully and properly consider the sume.
(Applause.) ne should, moreover,
like to know if thero was any truth
in the report that the company wan
about    to   amalgamate   with   LeRoi
No. 2.
Mr. B. M. Smith, who held a copy of
tbe British Columbia Review in his
hand referred to an editorial regarding the company,in which it was said
tbat "Mr. Mackintosh recently left
l#ondon at abort notice  on legal busi
ness connected   with    the   company's
title-deeds."
The chairman, in reply, said that
the accounts had been carefully audited, and they showed the exact position of affairs, which were, on the
whole, very satisfactory, all circumstances considered. The ��104,000 was
money due to the Hank ot Montreal
The directors had no intention of
amalgamating with Le Roi No. 2, and
a statement contained in the gutter
press that the British America Corporation had borrowed the money of the
Le Roi ivas absolutely false. As to
Mr. Mackintosh, be had heard that
he had been in London recently, but
Mr. Mackintosh did not call upon the
directors. Tbey did not send to ask
him what his business in London was
and he did not come to tell them.
Mr. Mackintosh had mining operations of his own to attend to.
Mr. Smith : But the British Columbia Relvew is a reliable and respectable paper.and I do not think it would
make such a statement unless it had
good ground for doing so. (Hear,
hear.)
The chairman: The directors did
not see Mr. Mackintosh.
Subsequently, the same shareholder
directed the chairman's attention to
another part of the same editorial in
the British Columbia Review, referring to the action taken by the British Columbia Govornment against the
company for returning false and misleading returns in the endeavor to
evade the government tax of 2 per
cent.
The chairman: I know nothing
about what the Hritish Columbia Review says. In answer to another question, the chairman said that as to tbe
circular issued last May claiming 25
per cent., there was now evidence to
show that at the present time they
were earning 30 per cent. They had
ono of the biggest and most profitable
properties in the world, and he
thought that both directors and shareholders ought to be satisfied. (Hear
hear.)    The motion was carried.

Two Real People.
Many suppose "Mother Goose" to be
en imaginary personage, but she was a
real woman, and her maiden name was
Elizabeth Foster. She was born in 16G5,
married Isaac Goose in 1003, a few
years later became a member of the Old
South church of Boston and died in 1757
at the age of 02 years. Her songs were
originally sung to her grandchildren.
Tbey were first published in 1710 by her
son-in-low, Thomas Fleet of Boston.
The "Mary" that "had a little Iamb"
wns Mary Elizabeth Sawyer, a Massa-
ehusetts girl. Her lamb was one of twins
forsaken by an unnatural mother. Mary
took It home nnd cared for it herself.
Tbey became fast friends, and when
Mary started to school her pet missed
her very much. So one morning It followed her. At school she tucked it under
her desk and covered H with her shawl,
but when she went out to her spelling
class the lamb trotted after her. The
children laughed wildly, and the teacher
had the lamb taken from the room. On
that morning a young student named
Rawlston wns n visitor nt the school.
The Incident awakened his poetic renins,
and a few days Inter he handed Mary the
first three -verses of the poem. He died
soon after, ignorant of the immortality of
bis verses.
The lamb lived many years and met
death by tbe horns of nn nugry cow.
Mary's mother spun its wool into yarn,
from which she knit her daughter a pair
of stockings. Years passed, and the
stockings became yellow with age. Finally Mary raveled them out, cut the yarn
Into bits, fluffed it out, sewed It to cards
and, after writing on them verifying the
genuineness of the yarn, sold them to secure money to help save the Old South
church of Boston.
Mine. As Lessepu,
Tears ago an English lady paid a visit
to the Island of Mauritius. She was introduced to a lady of great beauty and
commanding appearance, who ordered
every one about and whose features were
unmistakably Spanish. Who wns this
lady? An infant picked up on the field
of Waterloo from behind a wagon after
th* battle. Her parents were known to
God alone. She was found by an ensign,
Hetllger by name, perhaps an ollicer in
the king's German legion. He placed her
nnder the care of a soldier's wife, paying
for her support, and as she grew up, seeing how beautiful and talented she
promised to be, hnd her educated and
finally married her, as Dick Swiveller did
the marchioness. He held in his latter
days an appointment In tbe Mauritius,
���nd here follows the extraordinary pendant to this romantic tale:
The great-granddaughter of the Waterloo "Waif and Stray" (they mature and
marry very early in those tropicnl climes)
was tbe wife of Baron de Lesseps, the
originator of the Suez and the unfortunate designer of the Panama canal. At
the age of 17 she fell In love with the
baron, then above 70, and proposed to
him, according to tbe custom of the Mauritius, by a floral offering. The old baron
was so amazed that he declared that she
must Intend tbe offering for his son, who
was with bim. "Non, monsieur, e'est a
tous." The poor baron was in a state of
Imbecility at the time of the Punnma
scandals when his son and others were
sent to jail. It Is to be hoped that the
great-granddaughter of the Waterloo baby was a loving und faithful nurse in his
Infirmities of mind, body and estate.���

Offer of a Teacher.
Unlike many opera singers, Mrs. Jessie
Bartlett Davis has made It a practice to
attend church services on Sunday whenever possible. Once she went to isjlocnl
revival meeting. The music wns led by
���n angular young woman, astonishingly
clad, and gifted with one of the most
etridently discordant voices Mrs. Davis
had ever heard. Her singing was so bad
that it fascinated her, but, nevertheless,
It seemed to delight others In the congregation.
Immediately, after the sermon an old
nan who shared her pew showed great
Interest In her, and turned with a satis-
fled smile and said:
"I knowed you at once, "ton are one
of them opery singers tbat gave that
���how last night In the opery house V I
thought so. Well, that girl that led the
slngln, she's my darter, and she's the
best all round singer in the state. And
say. If you know any one that wants music lessons, send 'em to her. She gives
vocal and peanny lessons for a quarter
���piece. Jou don't want to take no lessons, do you? She's great on trills."
Mrs. Davis thanked bim, but, fortunately for her career, she declined his
well Intended offer.���Philadelphia Saturday Evening Post
A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special prescription of Dr. A. Boshee, 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 does, the cause of the affec-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
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.
Itosche's German Syrup was introduced in the United States in 1868,
and is now sold in every town and
village in the civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cough.

George Roy, superintendent of the
Silver Hill mine, is in the city today,
having his injured hand dressed. The
wounds inflicted by the cat which ran
amuck at tbe Silver Hill boarding
bouse are still giving Mr. Roy considerable pain but all danger is now
past.
Mayor Fletcher had been mayor just
one hour. He had left the city hall
and was walking down Baker street
when he was approached by a rather
seedy looking individual. "Could
you let me have a dollar?" was the
very polite request. "For what?"
asked his worship. "To buy something to eat." "Certainly," said the
mayor and the dollar was handed
over. And now Frank knows why the
mayor is paid a large salary.
John Gunn, the contractor for the
stonework on the new Columbia river
bridge, is in the city today on business. Mr. Gunn states that he now
has lull men on the ground and that
the construction of the bridge will
proceed rapidly from this out. About
mil) yards of stone has been laid up to
the present time, but much of the
work has been of a preliminary na
ture, and operations on u large scale
are only commencing. After this
week Mr. Gunn expects to lay ISO
yarus daily until tha work is completed.
Two prisoners were added to the
roll at the provincial jail yesterduy.

now from 9 a. m. to 4 p. m. Last
year the hours were 8:30 a. m. to 5:30

DOINGS IN PHILIPPINES.
A PRIVILEGE
Thrown Away Entirely.
"The delicious odor that comes
when you pour hot milk or cream over
Grape-Nuts, takes one back to childhood and the wide, golden harvest
fields when tho wind blew in your
fuse the scent of ripened gruln, and
made you, oh so hungry!
"Of all the appetizing foods, Grape*
Nuts food is the chief. I was led to
change my diet and tuke up Grape-
Nuts, from the fact that 1 had a very
serious, long-standing ease of constipation, which originated from coffee
drinking. Constant headaches, backaches, and a stomach that 'flit like
lead, was the condition; while the
mind was filled with misgivings ot all
sorts, and I verily believe 1 would
have gone insane If it had not been
for the temporary relief from vnrious
cures for eonstipation, but there seem
to be no permanent relief except in
good food like Grape-Nuts.
"This food is the same to a weak
stomach as kind words and a gentle
touch, to an aching heart. All my
doubt and fear and distress of mind
disappeared ns soon as I found a food
that I eould digest and which relieved
my difficulties. Life became brighter
and better,my home a "sweet home."
I have proved conclusively that the
food is really prcdigCBted and that It
ii a great nerve and energy builder.
Of coarse I can hardly express my
gratitude for tbe relief I have had."

FAMOUS BANDIT DEAD.
Rome, Jan. 1(1.���It Is rumored from
a doubtful source that the notorious
bandit Mussolini, for whom the police
and military have been searching for
a long time, died during the recent
cold wave from exposure in the woods
near Slila, Sicily. It is added that
the troops who were pursuing him
weie incapacitated by cold and
hunger.
BIO PENCIL MAN DEAD.
Berlin, Jan. 10.���Johann Faber,
founder of the famous lead ] encil factory, died yesterday at Nuremberg,
aged 84 years. When he began business Eaglish pencils were in almost
universal use in Germany. There is
now no market for them, they having
been driven out by the product of
Herr Faber's factory.
WERE NOT INCORPORATED.
Neither Slocan City Nor Private Parties Secure Water Rights.
Tho Slocan City water rights matter coming up ut the olllce of tho assistant commissioner of lands and
works yesterday resulted in a saw-off.
When the application was taken up by
Mr. Turner, the light revolved about
the rights for the Goat creek water
whicli is wanted for household purposes. J. C. Shook represented the
Sloean City Water &. Power Compuny
and put his case before the commissioner. The certificate of the company's incorporation was aBked for,
but Mr. Shook could not produce the
document bocause the incorporation
proceedings were not sufficiently advanced. Then Messrs. Andrews and
Smitheringule, the representatives of
the citizens, advanced the arguments
in favor of their application. In their
case the same objection of non-incorporation cropped up, the Water Clauses
Act providing thut only incorporated
municipalities or companies and secure water rights. The hearing was
adjourned to the 28th inst., when the
parties will be in a position to make
legal applications under the act.
HE WILL SAY NOTHING.
Natchez, Miss., Jan. 16.���Referring
to the London cable regarding his
plea of "infancy" against a claim of
��850 for jewelry, the Duke of Manchester yesterday said he would reserve his reply until he returned to
England. The cable report said that
the hearing was adjourned to await
his return and learn whether or not
he desired to maintain the plea of infancy. The ducal party will leave today for New Orleans.

Mr. George Gooderham Refers to Alleged Interviews.
Toronto, .Ian. 10, ��� Mr.George Good-
erliam gives out the following statements; "The published reports of recent interviews with nut regarding the
Canadian Pacific railway freight rates
in British Columbia are so misleading that I must decline to bo held responsible for them. Mr, Shaughnesiy
has already snllleicntly answered some
of the misapprehensions, As to others It is only important that I should
add I have no quarrel with the 0, P,
R. unless negotiations curried on in
an amicable way can be so called nnd
