HORNETS' NEST
Chamberlain's Speech Is Still Attracting
Much Attention.
IT IS THE POSITIVE THREAT OF WAR
So the Autorite of Paris Regards It���French Naval
Attache's Speech,  Simultaneously Delivered,
Officially Disavowed Press Attacks.
London, Due. 2.-*-Mr. Chamberlain's'
liking fnr straight Hung words bus not
only thrown the capitals of Europe in- |
to n turmoil, but his declarations havel
been by no weans- acceptable to those
in England who are responsible for thei
relations with  the United  States.   It|
appears  when   Mr.   Choate mado his.
Thanksgiving speech he was quite   ig- j
norant   tbat   Mr.   Cliiinilierlniii    -wns!
sneaking so definitely regarding tangible alliances mid the   ambassador did
not intend bis   generalisma regarding
(ireat Britain, Germany mid the United States to be taken   us  confirmation1
of the Oolonial   Secretary's  outspoken
remarks.   It would  appear  that  Mr. I
Chamberlain only   told half the truth,
for in these dispatches on  November
25 it was pointed ont that negotiations
were afopt for an  alliance looking for
il scll'pcput of the fnr -astero ���,-.:! *:iou.
The Outlook,  particularly   well   informed    ou    Chinese    matters,   says
this week, "tlio   keynote   of the  new
understanding will   be  found   in  the
words 'open door,' "
III view of Secretary Hay's denial to
the Chinese Minister, it is presumed
the United States, at any rate as yet,
lias uot deeided to claim any share iu
China. Acoording to opinion hero
!-': oretary Hay's denial was only to he
e\peeled at this stage and whether or
l. t currently forecasts thn attitude
of the United States, it is not regarded as dissipating the belief that the
"open door" is now the basis of nego
tiations between the powers, far more
comprehensive than mere answers to
the United States' requests for assurances.
In addition to being the centre of
attraction in the Europe excitements
Over mooted alliances; Mr. Chamber-
lain occupies the centre of the stage in
tho French-British dispute. His official recognition 'ot the French Press
diatribes, and the tlnoat of retaliation made in bis Leicestershire speech
bave incurred tbo (ensure of many of
his own Hiipuoriers, while his utterances have irritated France almost to
an alarm ing extent. Tbo Speaker declares Mr. Chamberlain's head has
Ice.i tinned by his interview with Km-
pen r William, and expresses the hope
that the French nation will not for-
pet that he is not yet Foreign Secretary, The fact that the French naval
Bttaohe, speaking at the Temple Yacht
Club dinner simultaneously with Mr.
Chamberlain, emphatically disowned
before Admiral Beresford and the othei
attaches and seven hundred promi
nent Britons, the attaoks on tbe Queen,
bus rendered Mr. Chamberlain's notice
of them more striking. The ABSoob
ated Press learns the French naval ut
taches' spe.icb was revised by the
French Ambassador and made at his
personal request.
The Conservative French papers
contrast Mr. Chamberlain's remark
able utterances with those of Admiral
Beresford, who following the French
naval attache, declared that a few car
iuaturiste could not be taken to repre
sent a nation. The Autorite, of Paris.
today says:
"We are confronted by the positive
threat of war.* Possibly it docs uot
correspond wiih British national senti
ment, but it is Mr. Chamberlain who
commands. We wonld ussurodlv have
desired to preserve the peace, bnt the
Minister who leuds Great Britain
Wants war which ii consequently inevitable. "
This extract from the Autorite voices
the extreme tone.
The Pe'it Pnrisieu believes Mr.
Chamberlain triad to throw dust in
the eyes of the Butlsh  public, "iu or
der to avoid attention being attracted
to the defeats in South Africa."
Thus the Colonial Secretary hns stirred up a hornets' nest.
In iuark3il contrast to his line of action is that of M. Delcasse,whose mod-
eratd speeches and statesmanlike references to the Transvaal receive the
warmest commendations from all sections of the Britisli press, though about
forty firms have announced they have
withdrawn their exhibits from the
Paris Exposition ou account of French
enmity.

PNEUMONIA   IN NEW YORK.
Returns Show a Marked Increase During This Year.
Now York, Dec. 2.��� In the onr-
rent number cf the Medical Record,
Dr. John H Pryor states that tho return of rhe death rates of consumption
in tho State of New York for the first
eight months of this year showed an
increase over the samu period in 18I1R
of (Mi!). Should this rate of increase be
proved to have continued iu the remaining four months, when the statistics have been compiled the increase in
1891) will bo abont 1,000 deaths, anil
the total will reach 4,000 deaths from
pulmonary tuberculosis in the year,being the highest rate ever known in
the state.
IN THE REICHSTAG.
FEARFUL  WRETCHEDNESS.
SIGNING   THE  TREATY.
But Little Ceremony, Aud no Sera.able
This Time For the Peus.
Washington, D. C. Deo. a.���There
was little of ceremony connected with
the signing of tbo Samoan treaty today. In the diplomatic room were
Secretary Huv, with Sidney Smith,
chief of tho diplomatic bureau, Lord
Paunoefote, British ambassador, and
an honorable attache in the person of
Mr, Brownell and Dr. Von Hollenben,
German Ambassador. The three copies
of the convention wero read carefully
to ensure their idontitv, and the signatures were attnohed in the usual manner, each representative signing first
the copy which his Government is to
retain. The seals were placed by William Gwynn, who has performed
that ceroinonj for a quarter of a cou-
tury, and after a general exchange of
congratulations tho principals parted,
oach carrying off bis own copy of the
treaty.
FINANCIAL PANIC FEARED.
A Condition Worthy of the Worst
Slums in a Big City.
Toronto, Out., Dec. 2.���A shocking
case of cruelty and wretchedness bus
been reported from Simcoe Country, to
Kelso, Government Superintendent of
neglected children, by a clergyman
who has visited tbe family iu question. He reports that the family consists of seven children, five of them
under eight, living with their father
and mother in a log but, with a
low ceiling, nil in [one room, not more
than 10x12 feet. The father has
something wrong with bis eyes and
says be cannot stand any ligbt.so thero
are no windows and there has rot
been a ray of light in the house for 10
years. The children consequently are
going blind in broad day liuht. The
only means of light the family bas
was a small ooal oil lamp with no
chimney.
The mother trys to get fond of any
kind for the children by washing, An
effort will be made to get the children
into the Children's Home,    Toronto.
There Will He a Tough   Struggle Over
the Passing of  the Naval Bill.
Berlin, Dee. 2.���After a fortnight's
skirmishing tbe Reticbstag,[during the
coming week begins serious work,
starting with the first reading of the
budget, which always lends to serious
nul heated debate, the important part
nf which will be the advance light
for and against the new naval bill.
The whole energy nf the Emperor and
the Government will be used towards
making the bill a law and thus securing for Germany, the second place in
the world as a naval power.
After suiveying the Parliamentary
field, it seems pretty probable that the
bill will pass, as the whole right, part
of the centre und a portion of the left
seem sure to vote for its pr.ssage. No
doubt German public opinion overwhelmingly favors the lull aud it is
believed by the Emperor that it is absolutely n cessary for Germany's continued prestige as a world power and
for tho extension of German trade and
influence abroad. Besides the opinion is held here generally that France
need no longer be feared as a serious
competitor militarily, she having
reached her ultimate limit in increasing ber army,and is unable to compete
with Germany's additional 15,000,000
of inhabitants. Thus it is believed
lhat Germany now has her bauds free
for a   naval expansion.
The Government's purpose to transform Emden, hitherto a small North
Sea harbor into a first class naval port
has", become   plainer   every   day.    Ou

ALASKAN CAVE DWELLERS.
A race of cave dwellers live ou a
small island on the Alaskan Coast. It
is King's Island, iu Bering Sea, dm
south of Cape Princo of Wales. Tbere
is onlv one village there and this has a
population of 800, Dr. Sheldon .lacl
son, the United States agent of education in Alaska, says that it is one of
the most remarkable settlements in
America, yet few people know of its
existence.
King's Island is about a mile in
length and is a mass of basalt, rock
which rises perpendicularly out of the
sea to a height of from *70l) to 1.000
feet. At tbo south side tins ia cleft
in two hy a deep ravine which is fill
ed hy a bugh permanent snow bunk
High upon the west side of the rn
vine is the village of Oukivak, whiel
consists of about forty dwellings,
partly hollowed out of the cliff and
built up outside with stone walls.
Across the top of these walls are laid
large driftwood pol"s, over these are
laid large driftwood poles, over these
aie placed hides and over the hides,
glass and dirt. The houses are e' tered
by a tunnel which runs along underneath, sometimes for a distance often
of fifteen feel, and ends under a hole���
eighteen inches in diameter���in the
lloor of the room above. This n? the
front door of the establishment. The
tunnel is so low that it is necessary to
stoop, and often crawl the entire
length of it. In summer these houses
generally become too damp to live in
The people then erect another dwell
ing on top; this is a tent of walrus
hide which is stretched over a wooden
frame and guyed to the rocks by lopes
to prevent its being blown off into the
sea. These tents allow of a room about
ten or lilt en feet square and aro entered by means of an oval hole in the
hide about two feet above the floor.
A narrow platform two feet wide runs
along outside of the door and leads
hack to the hill. These platforms are
often fifteen or twenty feet above the
winter dwelling below.
At the other side of the deep ravine,
al the base of the cliff, is a huge cavern into which the sea dashes, At the
back of this is a bank of perpetual
snow. The cave dwellers nse this as a
store house. They dig rooms in the
snow and store their provisions, which
freeze solid and keep the year round
for the tempcratuio in tho lair never

It is not that this is the only store where you can buy Dry Goods. It is not that our
store service is so extraordinary (though we pride ourselves on the attention we give
our customers). The reality is in the comparison of quality and price, in newness and
style. This week we present many opportunities for money saving to the economical
buyer.
Ladies' Tailor Made Suits.
The arrival of a new cavalcade of these goods
lakes precedence of everything else in our cloak department. Stylish and beautiful are two superlatives

Plain and Fancy Silks and Satins.
We are certainly proud of our Silk Department
and not without reason, yesterday we placed in
stick 25 pieces of new Silk, a little in advance of
the season, it is true, but there is some little satisfaction in being able lo wear Silks at the same time
that the identical goods are being worn in the head
centres of fashion. That comes of buying from a
real live house.

PARTY LINES AGAIN.
The party question has been ayain
np. It breaks out like a disease, and
rages more or less violently lor a week
01 two and then subsides. Mr. MC'
Phillips is responsible for the latest
outbreak. Mr. MoPhillips is one of the
four gentlemen who represent Victoria
iu ihe Provincial Legislature, is no
friend of the Semlin Government, and
in Federal politics is a pronounced
Conservative. He is a supporter of
and believer in the New Westminster
Confession of Faith, through which is
promulgated the dootriuo of party
lines in Provincial affairs. Some
thing moved him to address a letter
on the subject to The Colonist. The
Colonist is a no-party payer,aiul naturally replied to Mr, McPhillips, upholding its views. Another letter followed, and in the midst ol the excitement
Mr. Gordon Hunter jumped into the
ling. Between the three A them the
controversy became quite spirited, and
even interesting, but, alas, profitless as
well. It has about terminated, and
im one's opinion has been altered.
Mr. Hunter   is opposed to the introduction of purtv lines on principle. He
is a Liberal   in   Federal   politics, aud
supported Mr, McPhillips in that gentleman's   election    as   an   Opposition
member.    He wants onr   local politics
to run on on the same   old lines, judging candidates and Governments purely
as they affect  or   may   be   affected by
Provincial   interests,    irrespective entirely of auy aud all considerations   of
a Federal  character.    That   would   be
ideal politics, and it would be an excellent thing if we had it so.    But   it   is
not that now. and never will be or oan
be.    Besides, there   is the same  room
and the same  necessity for  this   ideal
condition iu Dominion politics.    Why
have party lines   anywhere'   Why not
select the best  men to represent us  at
Ottawa as well as at Victoria, without
regard   to   party names or sympathies
or prejudices?   If good   and   necessary
in tho one case, it must  also be in the
other.   But Mr. Hunter would not have
it this way.    He is too  good a Tory to
look with toleration on a   Grit seeking
a seat at Ottawa.    Aud   for dome   reason���this reason of principle, of course
���be is averse to breaking   his connection with the local  Opposition.    That
seveiance   would   necessarily    follow
the adoption   of   party   lines, and   we
are free   to admit   it   is  strong argument against it,    No 0110 could lightly
court the less of men like Mr. Hunter.
Something painful occurs in relation
to The Colonist   in  this  connection.
People are woudeiing why it is so desperately earnest in opposing the Introduction of party lines.   The Vancouver
World says "it   has some ulterior  ob-
jeef'to serve.    We   should  he sorry to
think so. There are few newspapers in
Canada mere respectable, or more ably
conducted, than   The Colonist, and   il
would have a tremendous influence for
good if the people could but keep their
minds clear of the suspicion that there
are personal or sollisb interests behind
it. We nre afraid this is the only tiiHlc
Hint will be left in the mouth as lhe
result 1 if this latest controversy, and il
Is not at all a   pleasant one.
B   interest
some others; but   whether  Cromwell
was a hypocrite is a question of such
long standing, and the discussion of it
has been attended with such acrimonious differences, that we are sure Miner
readers will be glad to have the views
of so eminent a  critic :
"With all his -rigorou-, characteristic
personality there is something impersonal about Cromwell. Outside the
battlefield lie never seems a free agent,
but rather the instrument of forces outside and abont him. The crises of nations, like the crises of nature, have
their thunderbolts, and Cromwell was
one of these ; he seems to be propelled, tn
be ejected into the world in the agony
of a great catastrophe and to disappear
with it. On the field of battle he is a
great captain, ready, resourceful, aud
overwhelming; off the held he seems to
he a creature of invisible influences; a
strange mixture of a strong practical
nature with a sort of unearthly fatalism, with a sort of spiritual mission,
and this combination in my judgment
seems to mark the strength of Cromwell. This mysterious symbolism seems
to have struck the Eastern .lews so
much that they sent a deputation to
England to inquire if he was the Messiah indeed. Well. Lhat is nol exactly
a combination that can bo produced in
bronze or any known metal, but Mr.
Thornyoroft has given us a statue,
the nearest equivalent to it.
He has given us Cromwell with
sword in one hand and Bible in
the oth.;r. Well, I supposo onr critics
will say there is no question whatever
about the sword, but there is a great
.leal of doubt about tbe genuineness of
tho Bible; indeed, the whole controversy hinges on the question, Wns
Cromwell a hypocrite or uot? That is
why I told yon the answer resting his
success on iiis religious faith would be
begging the question. Therefore I must
discard it. It is a question, however,
that must stand unanswered uutil the
secrets of all hearts aro revealed; it
is a secret left between Cromwell and
his God. Those who hate his memory for other reasons are determined
to believe that he was a hypocrite,but,
at any rate, we who are here tonight
do not believe lhat he was a hypocrite, or we should not be here. I
think those who call Cromwell a hypocrite can never have read his letters to
his children. Those are not Stale documents ; those were not meant to be
published in Blue-books���it was a
happy age when there were no liluo-
books���they were not meant to
put the Qovernment of the Protector in a favorable light; they
were the genuine outpourings of
a sincere soul. * * * But I will
give a more practical reason for ray
belief that Cromwell was not a hypocrite. Hud ho been he could not have
beeu such an enormous success; he
could not have wielded the enormous
force that he did. A religious force
that is based 011 hypocrisy is no force
at all. It may stand inspection for a
moment, like a house built upon tbe
sands, but when the storms come,
when the rain descends, and when the
winds blow, under the stress of adverse circumstances, the house and the
fabric disappear. I believe, then, that
had Cromwell been a hypoerito he
would have been found out. I believe
that if he had heeii a hypocrite he
would not bave been able to maintain
himself in the dazzling position which
he achieved : aud had he ! eeo a hypocrite he could not have formed that
aimv which he ('01111111.111101 and which
was indubitably the greatest army in
Europe at the time of bis death."

There wiih recently erected 11 statue
nf Oliver Cromwell wltbin the pre-
cinctH of the Honsei of Parliament,
WeslniiiiHtor. There wns DO forma]
ceremony in connection with tlie unveiling, which occurred on Tuesday
November 14, tho three hundredth on,
uiversary of bin birth j hut on tbe
evening of that day 11 largo number of
men who could admire his greatness
met to celebrate tbe event. Among
tlinse wiih Lord Rosebery, The proposal to erect 11 stnltie of the Illustrious
regioiie in a plaoe so oonspionons
crented a great stir in the English
mind, ii.r it is to he remembered that
there are many who even yet do not
forgive Cromwell or admit thai tbere
was tbe least Blouse for or explanation
of his conduct. There are Englishmen
by the hundred who would rather win
his bones lying in a ditch than have
his memory honored ami perpetuated
iu inarhle. Lord Honehcry is not oue
ot these, and he hns one of the most
BOOOmplisbed minds ot the age. The
speech of tbe occasion was of course
iiHttigucd to him. He gave an interesting and Instructive sketch of the chnr-
aotnr   of tbe grcnt   Protector.    His re-
Mr. Oeorge E, Foster defended his
vinht to take part in the Manitoba
elections on the ground that, as the
Dominion voters.' lists are now made
up by the Provinces. Dominion politicians are privileged to   interfere.    Tbe-
poiut is well made, The present Ottawa Qovernment, by their new Franchise law, levelled nil Provincial
fences, and it ill becomes their partisans to quarrel with the consequences.
Ah if to emphasise the hypocrisy of
the objection, un Ottawa Minister,
Mr. Sifton, is holding a series uf meetings in aid of the Oreenwsy Qovernment, Mr. Sifton hns no more right tn
appear on a platform in support of n
Liberal Provincial Qovernment than
Mr. foster and Sir Oharlss Tupper
have in favor of the Opposition,

Arrangements Arrived at last Night. By
Which Work Will Be Continued
Without Change of Time,
There was a big gather] ng of carpenters nt tho meeting' last night, called
for the purpose of dismissing the wage
und time question and other troubles
whioh liavi) recently boon started.
���As reported in yesterday's Minor, the
recently formed Carpenters' Union de-
niiiiideri fiom (lie building contractors
11 nine-boar day and $ii.fid wages The
employers did not seriously object to
the reduction of boars, but they stren
unnsly opposed the proposition that all
men employed as carpenters should be
paid VS.50, contending thai many of
the men wero not worth this wage
Tlio best carpenters have no difficulty
in obtaining ?.1 50 a day, bnt u number
of second class men, who are only ao-
cus omed to the rougher branches of
tbe trade, were raid but S:!. These
men aro among those enrolled as members of tbe union, and were the loudest
iu their demands for the higher rate of
wnges. Last night the would-be strikers were invited to will and get their
accounts settled up, the contractors
('(intending thnt -when tbey wanted
only experienced carpenters thej would
get them from outside quarters if ne-
oessary, It was nlso argued by the
contractors that they should have been
notified early in the season that such
demands would be marie, si Unit tbey
might have figured on their tenders accordingly. At last night's meeting of
the Carpenters' Union the wiser counsel prevailed, and it was decided not
to enforce the demands until January
1st, 1900, It was pointed out that the
Union, as at present constituted, wits
not affiliated with the parent society
and that if a strike were inaugurated
tbey could not hope for any assistance
from that quarter. An effort will be
made to have the Union regularly recognized and chartered, so as to bo in
effective working order early next year.
Existing   arrangements   will  consequently prevail until then.
LOCATION CHANGED.-Owing to
the condition of the road", the ball
to have boon given nt the Gran it"
Mines, Friday, December 8th, will
be held in Fraternity Hall, Nelson, instead, and nil invitations Issued will
be supposed to read"Fraternity Hall,"
instead of "Granite Mine."
LOCAL  AND  PERSONAL

-Up to yesterday evening the traoks
for llio electric tramway were laid two
blocks west of l-itanl"y Street, on Bator Street. It is hoped to havo the
line in operation by the 13th instant.

Jacob (li n hud John  Coggiin   and
his son Mimmoiicd for assaulting Him,
Tbe case was heard by Police MBgiB-
irate OrmiHo yesterday morning �������'
(lisniisHod. II appears thai the Ooggani
havo a shuck rented from Green, and
that when Landlord Green went to collect his rent, payable  in advance, tne
leliunts were not  in an   amiable mood.
Some uiicoinidimi'iitaiy remarks passed
between the parlies, and a little souffle
ensued, during which the lamp went
out. Young Coguan thou seized the
landlord, and   held him mini the lamp
was relighted and a receipt sigimi tor
Hie money. Ou this holdup the com-
jil.iinL was founded.
The new registry office is a BOme-
what peculiar looking building, having five chimney stacks toweriiis above
the roof, A would be janitor for the
building, was yesterday figuring out
what the job wonld be worth, to keep
all the fires going,and thought be shonld
have for ut least six months in the
year,a sum equal to that paid the Oold
Commissioner. However, four of the
live chimneys are merely ventilators,
the premises are to he heated by hot
ail, and only one furnace will be used.
One of Nelson's amateur mining experts���and there are many of them���
had a tough proposition   submitted   to
him yesterday,   He was shown a piece
of calcium carbide used in generating
gas iu the ncetvline machines, and
asked what he thoughl of it. It did
not take the exijerl long to discover
in the sample, traces of free gold, a big
percentage of silver and undoubted
evidence of copper. It was at last sug'
gesteil that the Bamnle should be immersed in water,ai d this done a match
wus applied with ot course, the result
that tlm rich"piece of quartz" blazed
up. "1 wus in the dark." honestly declared tho know-all miner and prospector, "but you've thrown some light on
tbe object." The expert in question
has gone down 75 per cent in the estimation of his friends since this incident.
Thomas Cameron has left town and
no oue will regret his departure. He
vi as not many days in Nelson when he
fell into the hands of the police,drunk.
For this his first offence be was let off
with a caution. Four days afterwards, on lhe ilrd of September, he
was again in custody, this tune for having robbed John Leech of a hank
nheok, He was convicted, and given
three months' imprisonment. He has
only been out of jail a week or two,
and bus managed to keep drunk all
the time, sleeping in barrooms at
night and "hnnibing" drinks all day.
On Friday night lie was arrested in
an intoxicated state, aud yesterday
inormig w��s brought before Police
Magistrate Crease, who gave him six
hours to clear out of town. Cameron
cleared.
There are a couple of saloon keepers
in town who seem to be under the impression that they have the right to
seize anything their customers may
havo in settlement nf liquor bills. A
man wus arrested the other night by
the police, who was roaming about,
somewhat under the influence of
drink, and without a hat. He explained that bis hat had been taken from
him by a saloon keeper from whom he
had u couple of glasses of beer. On
the charge of drunkenness he was lined
$a ind costs, and accompanied by the
Chief of Police he went, to the saloon
keeper In question to demand his hat.
This, i.e wus informed, wjuld bo held
until the sum of forty cents wus paid
over. But the chief gave the saloon
man a little legal advice, which had
the desired effect. Shonld a similar
oise occur again tbe suloou mini will
probably tino his way into court.
Mr. li. A. H. Leicester, Lieutenant
Beer, and a few other very energetic
citizens are arranging for a grand concert and smoker to im held in the Opera
House on the night of the 22nd in-
M'.m!., the proceeds of which will go
to tho Mansion Houso fund for the
reliet of tho families of the bravo fellows now lighting foi Queen and Empire in Africa. Mr. Leicester wus
around town yesterday and met with a
hearty response from the storekeepers,
who with scarcely au exception, have
contributed of their wares to swell the
collection of articles whioh will be
sold be auction on the occasion of the
smoker. An excellent musical and
literary programme will bo presented
hy the' best local talent, assisted by a
few amateurs of note who.it is expected, will be iu Nelson during Christmas
week. The cause is a worthy one nnd
will no doubt be generously supported.

Among tlio talented women photographers nnd artists of tlie Queen City perhaps none is more deserving of houor-
_I.K- mention than Mrs. A. O. Kaplan,
one of the best amateur photographers,
ami lier daughter, Isabel DeWitte Kaplan,  artist and writer.
Sirs, Kaplan is an accomplished women lu a number of the graceful arts, hut
her photographs particularly reveal her
artistic temperament. There are the
choicest bits of scenery, the fluent interior views and clever fancy pictures in
her very extensive collection which have
been highly complimented by the best
photographer) in this city. Mrs. Kaplan
is also nn artist, and her home is adorned
wiih beautiful water colors of exceptional merit.
Mrs, Kaplan inherited ber mother's artistic talents, wliich she displayed from
infancy. She drew her first pictures before she was 3 years old, and at the
age of in years wus admitted to tho Cin-

cinnatl Art school���the youngest pupil
ever udmitted. She attended on Saturdays until leaving high school and theu
Studied regularly for two years.
At the end of this time Miss Kaplan
Studied at the Art Students' league iu
New York, becoming a pupil of Kenyon
Cox, Mowbray aud Beckwith. After a
three years' course she was elected a
member of the league, which gave her
recognition as an artist. Several first
prizes were bestowed upon Miss Kaplan
in the exhibitions in New York. Her
Work has been reproduced in the St.
Nicholas, The Ladies' Home Journal,
Life, Truth nnd many of the loading
eastern papers. Her sketches are exceedingly clever ami show humorous appreciation of the ridiculous side of life. Miss
Kaplan has recently taken up miniature
painting and hns recently executed orders with great credit for several prominent parties iu this city nud New York.
Considering tho youth of Miss Kaplan,
who is only 22, her career promises to he
a  most   Mattering one.
In addition to her ability as an artist,
Miss Kaplan excels as a writer of both
prose ami poetry. Many of her verses
have appeared in print from time to
time. Her particular forte is children's
uml fairy stories.
Miss Kaplan is a charming girl personally and possesses n most lovable,
winsome disposition. Her lustrous dark
eyes reveal the depths of her nature, yet
lurking within one sees the happy girlish
spirit, unaffected and gracious.���Cincinnati Commercial Tribune.
The Wotunn of the Aitwel"*.
Biirbizou, a little village in the midst
of the forest of Fontainohloaii, a short
distance from Paris, has become a goal
of pilgrimage for many admirers of Millet's work and particularly for those who
know that the woman who suggested to
the great painter his famous picture of
"The Angelus" still lives there in a Utile
cottage a stone'8 throw from where she
was horn. Mere Adele's home is a small
vine clad cottage, in which she lives a
frugal hut comfortable life, troubled only
hy the overiuquisitivo tourists and hy
her rheumatism, She must have been
un attractive woman once, for even now,
although she bus witnessed the passing
of more than threescore years and ten,
there are traces of former beauty in her
V rinkled face.
Mere Adele is a lady, though she has
worn her lingers blunt by toil, and her
form Is bent under the burdens she has
hail to hear. When she looks at you, ber
smile is like a benediction, and the beautiful things of earth are not lost upon
her, Her manner is cheerful, as one who
feels she has uot lived in vain. If qucs-
tloned closely, she will will tell you of
the day wheu the great artist came
through the dense forest wilh his wife
uml children, leaving behind him lhe gay
city of Paris with its schools of painting
uml its models. She knows a great deal
of the very hard days which followed for
Jean   Francois  Millet���the toil,  the nilx-
ii'ty, the disappointments.   She nursed
his live children and did the little field
work In the garden adjoining the cottage. When he saw his iiurscgirl, Adele,
nnd her father reverently bowing their
heads in prayer at the ringing of the
angelus, he conceived the picture which,
If not his best work, Is yet the best
known and the one most appreciated by
the people. Mere Adele calls herself u
child of God. She looks It in the painting,  and  she  lives  it every day   In  her
humble cottage.���Edward A. Btelner in
Woman's Home Companion.
Grandma Rroivn'i "run.liooh,"
An old lady who lives up the state has
the reputation of having brought about
more reforms than any one iu that part
of lhe country. Her methods nro simple.
When anything comes under her observation that seems to need a remedy, she
quietly notes it in n book which she keeps
Tor lhe purpose. Sho never forgets the
grievances that need righting, and ns opportunity serves she puts in a word where
it will do lhe most good. After a time the
ngltntlon spreads, and when the feeling
becomes general (Jiiiiidmii Hrowu has R0-
GOllipllshed her end. Sb8 has been quietly
working along these lines for many years,
though it was only recently that her
neighbors heard of the plan. In her own
family it lias long been Iho custom to
say when some laxness on the part of the
town ollicials wus mentioned, "You'll
hare to  put   that  la  your   'funbook,'
mother." Here are some of the things
lhat persistent agitation brought nbout:
A new street was cut through to the
sehoolhouse so that the children were not
obliged lo go by a road on which fast
burses were speeded and whoro several
accidents had occurred. A village rule
ngiiiusl rilling on the sidewalk was pass-
i'il. Sunday baseball playing was prohibited. A hill so steep as to be dangerous
for nil vehicles, especially bicycles, was
graded, A marsh, horribly productive of
malaria, was drained by subscription, and
numerous other matters of public improvement attended to, and all this without special influence and nothing but
keeping lhe matter before the people resort ed to. "Grandma studies her 'fus-
book' ns carefully as some people do
their prayer lists," snid one of her irreverent young grandsons.���New Y'ork
('oiniiicrciul Advertiser.
A Nasty Man Wrote If.
"Women   are   the  most   unreasonable
creatures in tlie world," said the lire insurance man to his wife.
"Some women," she corrected.
"Well, we won't quarrel about il, but
let mu tell you about that old lady in
Slablowu who had her housa insured
three weeks ago," he went on. "She
had n $1,600 policy ou it, nbout all it was
worth, really, and we were only gelling
(12,50 a year for carrying it. Last night
it burned down to the ground, and today
she was in to see inc. She was fairly
sopping in tears aud angry besides."
" '1 thought,1 she sobbed, 'that if I hnd
my house insured it wouldn't burn down.
You told me thnt, I am sure'
" 'Oh, 1 beg your pardon, my dear lady.
I couldn't have said that,' said I.
" 'Yes, you did, or I never would have
had it insured. I've been living in that
house for 50 years, and it never was insured before, and it never burned down
before. And it wouldn't have been insured now if you hadn't put mu up to it.'
" 'But I never told you that it*wouldn't
burn down if you had it insured.'
" 'Yes, you did, too,' she insisted, 'for
what is the good of insuring a house if it
is going to burn down, I'd like to know'.'1
" 'There's a good deal of good. For iu-
stance, you will gut Jl.iiUO from the Insurance company, which you wouldn't
have got, and you have only paid $12.50.'
" 'When do I get itV she sobbed, as if
she wasn't going to get a cent.
" Must as soon as we can get matters
in shape nnd report the loss to the company.'
" 'Well,' she said, sniffing as she went
out, '1 suppose I will, but if I had known
it would hnve burned down, just tho
same, 1 never would have hnd it insured,
never!' "���Washington Star.
the business outlook Is. The true woman
will then be cheerfully ready to submit
to temporary curtailment���in fact, will
insist upon it. Under stress of circumstances the domestic help will he parted
with with less reluctance, and there will
be a closer study of culinary details to
devise ways and means of making the
table more attractive as the menu becomes limited. There is more actual
heroism in this sort of openness between
man and wife than there is in rescuing
impossibly beautiful maidens from perils
to which young women, ns n rule, are
never exposed in this prosaic day. The
anxieties which beset the average couple
of good social standing and restricted Incomes might be mitigated largely through
the proper frankness on the part of lhe
man.
Hon- She Hns the Best of It.
Every man has his day, but, thanks to
bis gallantry, woman has every day. K
reasonably Indulgent, she is mistress of
her destiny. She has her finger in all
sorts of pie, writes Jean Potage in tho
Boston Home Journal. Her sins art
forgiven her. If she murders n man
who has failed to treat her like the perfect lady she was not, the jury is pretty
apt to acquit her, taking into consideration the naughtiness of the man. On tho
other hand, if she treats n luun nastily
nnd he does her quietus make with u
largo bodkin, 12 good men nnd true disbelieve bis story and order him to the
scaffold. If she sues her lover for breach
of promise, she gets at least a part oi
what she sues for. If lie sues her, liu
gels the ha! hn! from all the newspapers.
In case of a quarrel In which she is to
blame she has a court of last resort
wliich is closed to mankind���she can always shed tears when she finds things
are uot going her way. If sho loses a
part of woman's glory, her golden locks,
she may piece out the remainder with
some adroitly commingled curls, to the
eternal deception of the public, and so
never hear the remarks of derision turned toward her baldheaded husband. If
she's an actress, she can play Juliet and
Hamlet both, while the male Thespian,
though be may make a better Hamlet,
is precluded by public prejudice and an
insipient black beard from ever looking
at the moonlight and asking Romeo
wherefore he is Borneo. And still she
asks for her "rights" nud seeks for
"power." The first person who asked
for the earth nud then scolded because
it was not fried on both sides nnd turned
over must huve been of the sex that
brought Adam to grief with an apple.

Kiss n bride after tho ceremony nnd

Maidens eager to wed should give dishwater heated to the boiling point a wide

Should n bride perchance see a coffin

Kiii'iii'i'iiii Wives of Japanese.
Much has been snid about mixed marriages in Japan. On rare occasions they
are a success, but this is uot generally
the case, especially if the wife be the
foreigner.
I was much interested in a European
lady 1 knew who had married a Japanese
officer. They were a very united couple, nnd, hnd it not been for the husband's mother, all might have been well.
But iu Jnpnn a wife is entirely in subjection to her mother-in-law, who makes
lhe most of this authority, in some enses
reducing her son's wife into a sort of
upper servant. In the present instance
as long as her husband remained at
home his wife was able to do pretty
much ns she pleased. When, however,
the war broke out and be joined his regiment in China, the mother-in-law entirely
regained the upper hand. The unfortunate daughter had to abandon her European customs, to adopt Japanese dress
for herself aud her child, to sit on the
floor and live principally on Japanese
food.
So great was the old lady's power and
influence thnt the western woman did not
dare to disobey, but had to submit in
silence uutil her husband's return home,
when, 1 am glad to say, life once more
became bearable to her.���Cornhlll Magazine.
C'tirlotia  I'cIk of Women.
Some minds are strikingly original,
even in the choice of pets. Certainly
I his was the case with the wife of a gen-
i Ionian farmer who made a pet of a pig.
The animal lost ils mother early, and
the lady, taking pity on the little orphan,
bore it off to the kitchen, where she succeeded, by the aid of a feeding hoi tie, in
rearing it.
The pig became n great pet and used
to follow ils owner like a dog. It could
hardly have been ils outward attraction
that won her heart, ll must have been
its qualities which endearod it to her.
Another very singular pet was that of
a frog, which was tamed by a young
girl in the country and would come out
from under the leaves at her approach
to be fed with a strawberry.
A linly who was confined to her room
had a fowl which, before her illness, was
a constant Companion, It used to be regularly brought to her room every morn-
lug to see her and be fed by her own
bauds nnd allowed lo lake a short walk
about  her room.
Another member of the feminine gender actually made a pet of a turkey and
declared it should "never be eaten, but
die in its own good time," which it did,
of old age.
A much more extraordinary instance of
a strange pot, for a woman at any rate,
was where an old lady so far overcame
llio natural repugnance of her sex as
to tame n mouse which had been caught
in her store clipboard. So successful was
her treatment that at lust the tiny animal
would take crumbs from its mistress' fingers.���Woman's Life.
For  Ihe  Hair and   fc'ace.
An excellent tonic for the hnlr is nindc
by mixing oue quart of buy rum, hnlf a
teacupful of table salt and four drams of

If the face be very sunburned, a good
plan is to spread over it at night the
white of an egg. It will draw the skin
and make it feel most uncomfortable, but
the result next morning will be highly
gratifying.
To Make the Hair Soft and Glossy ���
The use of this shampoo will keep the
hair iu perfect coudition, rendering it Boft
and glossy: Shake the yolk of nn egg iu
half a pint of alcohol till thoroughly
mixed. Strain nnd you will hnve a clear
fluid left which will keep for nn indefinite
period. Into ench basin of wnter used
for washing the hair put ono or two
tablespoonfuls of this liquid. Bub well
into the scalp and through the hair.
Itlnsc in clean warm water. Bub with a
linen towel till partly dry and then tako
a large Japanese fan nnd fun vigorously
till perfectly dry, when the hair will be
delightfully soft and glossy.���Home

COLON'S   OB NATAL.
Why it Was So Named, and What it
is Like.
Natal got its name from being discovered on Christmas Day, 1497, by
the Portuguese navigator, Vasco da
(janiii. The Oolony has a seaboard of
ij?li miles, and bus no less than IIB rivers running into {he Indian Ocean.
From 1J!IT there was little heard of
Natal until the year 168(3, when a
Dutch vessel was wrecked in the Bay.
The Dutch hud a settlement there in
1721, which lasted only a few years,
us did also a small English settlement
started there iu 1S24, but from IH'il the
Dutch colonised the district It was
proolairced to be a British Colony in
184.1. The capital Pietermaritzburg,
has a population of upwards of 34,000,
and the largest town and only port,
Durban, has close on 40,000 inhabitants, of whom 10,500 are Indian and
11,0(10 natives. The climate, is mild,
cool and bright and the rainy season
lasts fiom October to March. A very
large proportion of the inhabitants are
Zulu natives and out of 50,000 Europeans there are only about 5,000 Dutch.
The average passage- between London
and Durban occupies 24 ("ays while the
traiu journey between Capetown and
Johannesburg takes 72 hours. Railway construction was commenced in
187fi and there are now nearly 500
miles of railway open running to
different parts of the Oolony. The
Volunteer Force composed of nil ranks,
is partially paid, aud there is an
armed and mounted police fully
equipped and available for Held service.
All boys attending the Government
schools that are over ten years of age
are obliged to undergo military training, and in the last report there were
2,000 in the Cadet Corps. Thero are 211
Government schools, and in all 508
schools under Government inspection.
Tbe harbour at Durban has recently
been imuroved by dredging, and there
is a depth of about .10 feet on the bar
at low water.

Twenty-six     Marriageable      Damsels
Wanted oil Nez Perce Reservation,
L. Naylor, of Cold Springs, Idaho,
Btopped "off in the city yesterday, on
bis way to Chicago, says u lekoa nis-
patch to the Spokesman-Review. Mr.
Naylor has a ranch on that portion of
the"Nez Perce reservation which was
thrown open for settlement about live
years ago. Located in his neighborhood nre 2ti other ranchers who have
beoon e thrifty by thoir steady habits
and in lustry, but as tbey arc all unmarried they have lately realized that
their happiness is incomplete and will
remain so until they are provided
with wives or helpmates.
Their "inoompleteoess" bothered
them and i.fter discussing the matter
in itH various phuseR ihey decided upon the novel plan of sanding Mr. Naylor east to secure 20 young ladies ol a
marriageable age who are willing lo
OOUie west and share with them the
joys and sorrows of life in the Nes
Perce oountry. Mr. Naylor is well
known here us o young man of push
and enterprise.
When questioned by the reporter regarding the objeol of' his trip, he said :
"We have been in Iho Nez Perce
oountry for Ave years and during 'hat
time have built for ourselves comfort
able homes. None of us are married,
but we concluded lhat it is time that
we all should   be.    While   talking   the
matter over we thought of  the many
hard-working factory   girls in the east
who wonld   make us ideal   wives  and
probably would be only loo pleased  to
marry us if  given au   invitation.    At
least we thought the experiment worth
the trying. A sum was subscribed
inning us to defray my expenses and
pay the young ladies' lure out here. 1
urn well acquainted in Chicago and
think that I will experience no trouble
in securing the requisite number of de

"Why not try to get wives in the

suggested.

There is (ivory indication of an early
resumption ol work ut the Galena
Mines, a short distance above town,
everything having beeu put into first-
class shape, and it only awaits tbo
word from the management beforo a
full loroe of miners cau be employed,
says tbo Silvertonian. Tho Galena
Mines Group ia the only developed
sinking proposition iu the Slocan and
has a most complete plajt installed upon it. A Bhaft has been sunk over 200
feet and a very large amount of underground development accomplished,
with the result that an immense body
of both clean and concentrating ore is
blocked out ready to stope. The property was originally developed by an
English company but has lately passed iuto the hands of a syndicate of
Canadian and American capitalists,
who intend to work the property for
all there ia in it. Il is tho intention
of the new owners to erect a large concentrator just below the mine. The
property has been for some time past,
both under the old and new managements, under the direct charge of 8.
0. McClure, a practical mining man
of large experience.
The character of the ore produced
at this property is both steel aud cube
galena and in places a large percentage
of/.inc is present in the ore. The assay values vary from (10 to 200 ounces
in silver to the ton and from 20 to 00
per cent lead.
This company has a water-power,
folly developed and more than sufficient to furnish power, not only for the
operating of their air compressor and
hoisting plant, but also for furnishing
nil power necessary for the contemplated concentrator. The water-power
is furnished by Gold Creek,a Rtreara
that crosses the property, and is taken
out at a point about half a mile above
the shaft, to which place it is brought
down through a Ifl-inch steel pipe
andjhas at the point of discharge a
pressure of 1108 feet. This water has
been found sufficient to generate 200
horse-power. There is probably no
property in the S!ocan in a better position tban the Galena Mines to furnish sufficient ore to keep a large concentrator pounding away for a long
time.
the Govenment was induced to contribute to n public school. The building
was on Stanley street, and the first
teacher was the lady who is now Mrs.
J. Hamilton.
"The most pretentious houses in
Nelson in the early days were the three
log cabins that now.stand near the
Oity wharf. One of. the Hall bothers,
ifter whom the Hall Mines ure named, lived in oue of them. Mr. A. H.
Kelly, of tho Exchequer; (we used to
call him Dnndy Kelly, from his connection with the Dandy mine) had another, and .lohn R. Cook, who is now
nearly a millionaire in Rossland, lived
in the third. Cook got his first start
on the road to fortune when lie sold
out his interest in the Dandy, bought
np a few cayuscs, and started a pack-
train. I'll never forgot Osner Hall's
description of his first rida in a palace
car from the Glacier to Victoria. Tha
old man was not accustomed to travel
in state, but there was a deal on for
the sale of the mine, and they were
treating him like a prince.
"Benjamin Lee was the first Proviu-
oial Policeman stationed here, and he
had an easy time of it. Tbere was a
lot of jolly good fellows about, but beyond getting full now and again, there
was no trouble with them.
"1 remember \ie used to occasionally
bave'swimming matches in the lake,
but it was not a popular sport as the
waters then wero just ns cold as they
are now. What started the.swimming matches was a feat performd by
Dave Broinner aud Jack Watson
Tbey were together at Ainsworth one
time, and Dave, going down to the
beach proceeded to undress. 'Where
are you going, Dave?' asked his partner. 'Over to the .Bluebell,' answered
Dave. 'I'll go with you' said Watson,
and they both undressed and plunged
in. Now the Bluebell is a mineral
claim at the other side of the lako
from Ainsworth, nnd the pair swam
tha distance���about tbreo miles. Having strolled about the opposite shore
for some minutes in their Adam and
Eve costumes, they took to the water
again and swam back, and having
dressed were escorted np town by a
cheering bund of spectators to receive
the congratulations of admiring
friends. Several of���the boys hero tried
to swim across to the other side, but
I have yet to hear of the fellow who
succeeded."
With tho coming of tbe Holiday
mouth, advertising always livens up.
This year is no exception to the rule.
The year bus been a prosperous one in
West Kootenay and most people have
money laid by with which to remember relatives and friends at Christinas
time with presents, The preparations
made by Nelson merchants for this
year's Holiday trnde far exceed the
preparations of previous years. The
merchants are striving to outdo each
other in tne value of sales for Decern ���
ber, and the best way to roach the peo
pie iu an effective manner nud on the
shortest time is by advertising. Today's Miner may he said to contain
a full complement of advertisements,
and each advertisement is well worth
reading. They tell you where to find
the best aiticles in various lines, and
where you oau buy at the lowest
pi ices.
Martin O'Reilly & Co., the hustling
firm ot dry goods merchants, have a
page announcement iu today's Miner.
Thoir new store enables I hem to properly display their goods, and the result
is that the buying public are better
able to realize the wide range and superior values of their stock���and an
increased patronage follows. They do-
serve their success, for they have won
it by honest and earnest effort.

vet, allh' ugh it was clearly addressed
to his !o\ by typewriter, it did not
reach that receptacle until yesterday,

Office :derk to add, that such complaints nre very raw.
TWO CRACK REGIMENTS.
The Nelson Furniture Company begins tho month of December with large
advertisements announcing a special
sale of furniture, at which discounts
of 25 aud 10 por cent, will be given.
This well known company is nbout to
move into new and larger quarters,
aud tbey are willing to allow the public to move much of their stock to Nelson hoines at a great reduction over
regular prices, rather tban carry all to
the new store. Tbey also have a number of carloads of new furniture on
hand, and as they bought at the right
prices they will give our citizens the
benefit. 	
J. J. Walker, the jeweller, has a
special announcement in today's
Miner. He is prepared lo haudle the
major share of Christmas trade in his
lino, red that ho will snoceed in doing
so goes without saying. His store is
small and rent iu proportion. He has
no clerk' hire to pay, and as his expenses are light he can sell cheaper
than cau the liousis that are more expensively conducted.
EXPERT ON  SCREWS.
the
ODD TALKS   WITH   OLD-TIMERS.
Thi Postofflce iu a Tent And a Once-a-
Week   Service.
"It makes ine tired," remarked a
teal old-tinier to a Miner man the
other day, "to hear people complain
and expect to find everything in Nelson that goes to make up a metropolitan City, If the chronic kickers had a
liitle of my early days' experience
here, thevl.wonld realize how thankful
they ought to be for the privileges and
accommodation they uow enjoy. Why
I remember when Jim Gilker hud the
post ollico iu a tent on that vacant lot
about the corner of Hall and Baker
streets. We managod to get a mail
once a week in those days,after considerable agitation, but it was regular
and we were more anxious to get it
than most of the follows who now lino
up at tho post olllce twico for letters
that may never come, Tho mails
used to be curried by Joe Wilson's
pack train, aud come in from Oolville
over whatjwo used to call the tow-path
rond. The O. P. R. was built into
Nelson iu tho spring of 1891, and from
then we got onr mail more frequently, but not more regularly. We
used to be watching for Joe's pack
train, and when ho ariived it did not
take very long to sort the letters. Joe
Wilson was drowned in November
1890, op tho lake. He was bringing
over some cattle on a scow, and all
wero upset and went to the bottom.
Billy Perduo and Blako Wilson, then
took up the puckiug and butcher business, and carried it on successfully for
a long time.
" I see there is a lot of kicking about
the wharf. It was built in the fall of
'02, Jim Dunn being the foreman. It
has stood well, and it wants new
plunking now and it ought to get it.
"We hud two hotels under canvass ns
well as the postofflce. One was run
by John Ward nnd the other by A. J.
Marks and C. Van Ness, his partner,
who died some time ago. And right
comfortable hotels they were.
When Mr. Chamberlain first left
Liberal Party, and i<egan to be a
vorite of "smart society,' there used to
be, it will be remembered, plenty oi
somewhat rnaliouus allusions to his
once having beon iu the screw trade.
On one occasion Mr. Chamberlain gave
a singular and a plucky instance of
how little he cared for this gossip. A
beautiful gold cup of undent make wbb
under discussion at llio breakfast table
iu the country house wheie Mr. Cham
berlain was stopping. Various guesses
were given as to its age. '' I see there
is a screw in it," said Mr. Chamber
lain; "if yon allow me to look at the
screw, I think I should be able to tell
its nge. " He inspect?!! the screw attentively, and then gave the exact date
of the cup. It was some time iu the
eighteenth oentury. Here was an ex
ample at onco of the absence ot mau
vaise honte and the presence of expert
knowledge.
SHOT BV  AN "AD.
At the time of the Maori wnr 1 bad
a strange experience. The publishing
Office of a local newspaper was close to
the scene of some of lhe hottest light
ing. During the struggle the Maoris
rail short of ammunition for their
guns, and, raiding the newspaper
Offices, charged their guns with typo
and stereo-blocks. This novel ammunition proved very effective. One of the
white Invader" was severely wounded
with a patent medicine advertisement,
another was crippled for life by a
church bazaar announcement, and the
editor, who had taken refuge with the
British troops, had n narrow escape of
being hit with one of his own poems
-Tit-Bits.
MAKING   READY
Tho Government of Japan, who already have placed very large deposits
in some of the leading banks,have been
among the applications for the six
months' Treasury Bonds issued last
week, says an exchange. Ono of the
largest blocks of these securities was
allotted to them or their representatives. This is taken in official circles
to imply that Japan is continuing to
increase her wnr chest, aud that some
of the great ship-building firms or
those who supply munitions of war
may expect some big orders as soon as
the Treasury dues mature.
SAY ED THE FLAG.
In the course of the Spanish-American war an extremely smart ruse wns
practised by a British Consul in his
effort.'- to prevent a Icllow-countryman
being killed by tho Spnniards. Having rendered aid to some American
wounded, au Englishman was arrested and eoiiCetnliPil to be shot ns a
spy, despite the utmost exertions ninde
by thr British Consul to save him from
thai laic. As the mini stood blindfolded awaiting execution, the Consul
stepped forward and requested permission to approach the prisoner to ask
if he hail any final message to give
hi ui.
Th" request was granted, and the
Consul, with one hand in the breast
of bis coat, at once advanced towards
the doomed man. As he came up to
him lie suddenly withdrew his hand
from his eont, and with it the Union
Jack of Old England, which be,unfolded like a flash and threw over his
condemned countryman.
Tben lo the Spaniards he shouted,
"Fin upon England's flag if yon
dare." But the Spnniards did not
dare, and owing to the brave Consul's
clever ruse lhe shooting party did not
shoot and the condemned did not die.
