Nelson,  British Columbia, t^^y, June 4,  1899.
Tenth Year
SENTENCED TO BE HANGED
Pasto to Pay the Extreme Penalty of the
Law for His Crime.
WILL   HAVE  THE   CASE  APPEALED
The Date Set for the Hanging Is the Tenth of August,
and the Execution Is to Take Place
in  Nelson  Gaol.
Murder trials always exoite a great]
deal of popular interest, and the Pasto
cane waB no exceptiou, although the
facts of tlui case were generally known
aud no sensational developments were
expected. The evidence brought out
established the faot as previously published in The Miner, aud the verdict
of the jury was generally expeoted
and approved of. The prisoner's counsel, Mr. J. R. Oostigan, Q. 0., made
an able defence. Ho does not accent
his present defeat, but announced his
intention of appealing the case. Tho
court houso was crowded again yesterday, and although the jury did not announce their verdict until nearly 8 p.
m. a very largo minibor of interested
spectators were there to hear it.
Constable Morris testilied to his finding the body of Terence Ryan, the
murdered man, and to receiving tho
prisoner from Constable Barnes and
McVittie who captured him.
V. Alplionso, an Italian, swore that
tlui prisoner and Musaehio came to
their shaok. where he also lived,
about 1 a. m. on tho night, of the murder. Thoy wero bleeding about tho
faces and Musachio's eyes were blackened. On coming in Musaehio began to cry and said .
"You havo shot a man, and 1
shall bo arrested for it." "It I am
arrested, I will accuse myself," was
Pasto's reply.
Tho witnoss also identified the re-
volver produced as tlio prisoner's. He
said tha*; D. Alplionso was in ' the
shaok at the same time. Ho further
statod that ho hart been arrested by
Constable Barnes who told him he
would bo in a bad box unless ho gave
what information he could as to the
guilty parties and their whereabouts.
The two men thought they had better get out of the country, and decided
to go to the United States by way of
Elko, as being the quickest route.
D. Alplionso. who was present whon
the prisoner and Musaehio came into
the shack, said uuder cross examination that he had heard nothing of the
confession the other Alphonso stated
the prisoner had made
Provincial Constable McVittie and
Barnes next gave evidence as to finding the prisoner aud Musaehio near
.Elko, whore thoy were eurteavoring to
cross the Elk river. Under cross examination these witnesses contradicted
one another in rather au important
particular. Oontsable Barnes swore
that, on the morning after tho arrest
the prisouoi lulmittod his guilt. He
said that lie had warnod tho prisoner
that whatever he Bald would bo used
against him, but under cross examination he was unable to swear whether
ho had given this warning tho day
the men wero arrested or the day after. Tho fact was also elicited that the
constable told tho prisoner that Alphonso know all about tlio crime aud
hart told everything, whereuponl Pa"to
m ide tho confession. Constablo McVittie swore that Constable Barnes
had warued tho prisoner on the day ho
was arrostcd. Mr. Oostigan objected
to the admission of the evidence of
this confession on the grounds that
it was not given voluntarily and that
it was not proved that the prisoner
had boen warned. Mr. Justice Drake
deolded that the evidence should be
admitted. Mr. Oostigan then asked
that the case be reserved but the court
refused.
The next witness was Nettie McDowell, a white prostitute, who lived
next door to Jcnnio Howard outside
whose house the row started. She
stated that she heard a shot fired, and
went out, to see what was the matter.
She could distinguish two men standing talking near a woodshed close to
the railway track and then saw another man goiug over towards where
they Btood. Sho heard some one cry
out "Come on, you b ." Almost immediately afterwards a second
shot was fired. Neither she nor any-
other wituoffl could give evidence as to
what or whom tho first shot was firad
at. It was Ihe second shot that was
tho fatal one.
Webber, Dianj player in the last
witness' house, testified that he came
out of the house with tho McDowell
woman to see what was going on. His
evidonoe waB the samo as hers with
one    important  addition.   He swore
that he heard a voice reply to the challenge mentioned above saying: "I
am oomiug."
This closed the oase for the Crown,
and as the defense called no witnesses
at 2 p. m., Deputy-Attorney Qeneral
McLean rose and addressed the jury on
behalf of the prosecution. He spoke
for about two hours carefully sifting
the evidence in an able speeoh, aud
making out a very strong case against
the prisoner.
About 4 o'oloek Mr. Oostigan arose
and made a strong plea out of what
seemed at first rather unpromising
matorials. He laid stress on the
statement made by Constable Morris
that Mansfield aud Matheson were disreputable characters. They had attacked the prisoner and his companion
and beat tliem badly, going so far as
to use such a formidable weapon as a
poker. He oited the evidence that
showed that the prisoner aud Musa
Ohio were badly knocked about, their
faces Weeding and eyes blaokeued.
Tho theory of the defense was that the
prisoner who had already been se
verely thrashed, was in terror of his
life, and in the darkness mistook the
approaching man for one of his late
aggressors. Feariug another onslaught, which might have even
more serious results than the first, the
prisoner fired. Mr. Oostigan stated
that the jury might bring in a verdict
either of murder, manslaughter, or
justifiable homicide iu defense, and
contended chat though the wrong man
was shot the prisoner was to all intents aud purposes acting in self defense. Ou these grounds he asked for
au acquittal or at any rnte a verdict
of manslaughter. He spoke for about
au hour and three quarters.
About 5:45 Mr. Justice Drake summed up, und strongly against the prisoner. He said that though in murder
cases there were three alternative verdicts, murder, manslaughter and acquittal, yet in this case the circumstances precluded a verdict of manslaughter. The jury must bring in
verrtict of guilty or  not guilty.
The jnry came in about 7:30 and
asked that the evidence given by V.
\lphouso at the preliminary heariug
be read over to them. This was done
and they again retired, but returned
to the box in 10 minutes, their foreman
announcing that their verdict was
guilty.
His lordship asked the prisoner if
he had any reason to give why sentence should not be passed upon him,
whereupon the latter began a rum-
bing statement which his lawyer soon
stopped lest be should prejudice the
intended appoal of the case. Mr. Justice Drake then gave judgment in the
following words:
"Prisoner at the Bar, the jury, after a careful consideration of vour
case, have arrived at a verdict with
which I do not disagree. My sole duty
now is to pass that sentence which
the law ordains iu suoh oases as yours.
I entreat you to seek pardon from one
who is greater than any earthly judge,
and to prepare for your end.
"The sentence ot the oourt is that
you shall be taken hence to the place
whence you were brought to remain
there until the day appointed wheu
you will be hanged by the neck until
you are dead, and may the Lord have
mercy on your soul. "
The prisoner, who is a thickset, low
browed Italian, apparently about. DO
years of age and with by no means a
prepossessing countenance, preserved
an outwardly calm demeanor through
the vory trying ordeal. Beads of
perspiration stood on his brow, and
wore the only outward sign of the awful tumult that must have been raging within him. He speaks practically no English, and tho sentence had
to be translated to bun by tho interpreter.
Attir the case Mr. Oostigan gave notice that he would apply for a new trial
on the grounds of wiongful admiBsion
of evideuce and misdirection ot the
jury.
The date of the execution has been
fixed for August 10.
WENT ACROSS THE BOUNDARY.
Two Women Make Things   Lively   in
Rusael,   Wash.
Cascade, Juno 3. ���The little town of
Russel, a milo and a half from Cascade, ucross the international boundary lino, was the scene of a fracas last
night that for the time completely terrorized its few inhaibtants- Two immoral women  who bad been advised
to leave Cascade entered the Btore of
ti. P. Person, formerly of Spokane,
and without cause or reason began to
abuse the proprietor. A soene ensned,
and tho women wero shut out. They
secured axes and broke every window
in the building, as well as those of
Mr. Orandall's storo. After terrorizing the inhabitants for threo honis
they oame to Cascade and were
quickly looated by Provinoial Constable Darraugh, as drunk and disorderly persons wore arrested and
thrown into jail.
Iu the meantime a telephone message to Bossburg brought. Deputy
Sheriff Terry and an assistant in double quick time arriving at Oasoade at
3 a.m. Officer Darraugh let the women
out aud they promised to make themselves soarce. As soon as they got
across the line Mr. Terry and hiB deputy took tbem into ouBtony and to
Bossburg.
They are known to the officers as
"Rough Lock Nell" and "Scrap Iron
Minnie" and bear a most unsavory
reputation. As Russell is in Ferry
country they will probably be delivered to Sheriff Wiseman of Republic.
Many dollars' worth of damage was
done to Mr. Person's store and his
wife and sister were afraid of their
lives during the incipient reign of
terror.
FOREST FIRES ALONG
"CRIMPING" TO BE GONE INTO.
The Reasons for British Sailors Deserting at American Ports.
London, June 3.���Admiral Edward
Field (retired) brought up in tbe
House ot Commons lust month the
question of "Crimping" and the desertion of British sailors, chiefly in
American ports, the upshot being that
the British consuls were requested to
report on the subject, and an interesting bine book has been issued comprising the reports of the consuls at
New York, San Fiaucisco, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Portland, Ore.,
describing the operations of the boarding house keepers and shipping mas-
tors in alluring them to leave their
ships. The general gist of the reports
appears to be that the sailors desort in
order to secure the higher rates of
wages obtainable in the American
ports, but tnat the number of desertions is rtocreiisiiig.

Now That His Lnok HaB Turned They
Nearly All Denounce Him.
London, June 3.���The fickleness of
populatity is beginning to demon-
started itsolf in the oase of Tod Sloane
whoso recent failures have wrecked
many of his supporters. His big backers, like Riley, Grannan and Dwyers
have taken there losses liko true sports
men and have retired to America. It
is the smallest fry who while Sloane
succeeded reaped a harvest and losing
cannot find words enough to denounoe
him.
One of these on returning from Epsom last night filled the corridors of
the Hotel Cecil with rantings against
tbe honesty of Sloane's Oak failure until the hotel officials had to remonstrate Colonel Tom Ochiltree declared
himself a heavy loser and says Sloane
is a great jockey for five furlongs
but when everyone expects him to win
aud backs him heavily he is left at
the post and that in no other way in
the world conld he have lost the
Oaks, In spite of the olamor of disgruntled losers Sloane maintains his
hopes of ultimate success tbis season.
Ont of 103 mounts he has now won
37 while Otto Madden heads tbe list
with 50 wins out of 260 mounts and
Loatos has 43 wins ont of 201 mounts,
Sloane has won 35 por cent out of his
races and the best English jockey has
only won 19 per cent.
ARBITRATION     NOT   POSSIBLE.
Continental Newspapers Donbt the
Feasibility of British Proposal.
Berlin, Jnne 8.���The Hague Peace
Conference has largely occupied publio
attention this week. Tbe papers bave
freely commented on its doings. The
news that it had really taken up he
subjeot of international arbitration
came as a great surprise to many.
The leading papers at first lefused to
believo it. The Kreug Zeitung often
the reflector of the views of the army
and upper circles acknowledged tbat
Sir Julian Pauncefota had played the
clever game with M. De Staal and
then declared that the idea of arbitration of suoh a sweeping nature as
Great Britain proposed was untenable
and out of the question so far as Germany was concerned as it would open
the door to constant foreign interferences in the internal affairs of nations. The paper also doubts the correctness of the version making M. de
Staal accept tbe British proposal as it
considers it would be going too far beyond tbe Czars instructions. It also
reminds Russia of her Polish and Finland and Great Britain of her Irish
question and expresses the belief that
neither power is willing to aocept in
principle such courts as Sir Julian
Pauncefote has outlined whioh it is
claimed wonld make matters more
strong and reverse the natural order of
things. Tbis article has attracted
much attention and it is belioved it reflects the opinion of the  Government.
A JOSS   HOUSE   IN   MONTREAL.
Montreal, Que., June 3. ���A magnificent joss house wasdedioated in
Lagauohetiere street, the heart of the
Chinese quarters here, this week.
Eiforte will be made to have it suppressed.
For the past three days a columu of
smoke has been noticed by many, ascending from the valley of Cottonwood
Creek, but not much attention was
paid to it. On Friday evening it was
observed to bave immensely increased
in volume, and many inquiries were
made around the streets as to what was
the cause of it.
Yesterday it was learned that a bush
fire of considerable magnitude was
raging, extending from a point about
a mile and a half above town nearly to
Cottonwood Lake. It being an unusual season for bush Sres, especially after the month of rain that has just
been experienced, not much alarm was
felt in Nelson as to the danger of its
spreading towards the town. However, for a time during Friday night
a ohange of wind might bave done
great damage to the City.
A visit to the scene of the fire yesterday afternoon revealed the fact that
the unused mill of the defunct Nelson
Sawmill Co., together with a conple
of oabins in the neighborhood had all
gone np in flames. It burned an
unknown amount of cut cordwood
Blacked on the mountain side also,
probably in the neighborhood of 200
cords.
What further damage may bo done
it will be impossible to tell for some
days yet as communication with up
the valley ib for the present cut oil'.
Even the road to the Hall Mines now
is impassable, the fire hlazing
fiercely on both sides of it, aud fallen
burning timber lying across it everywhere.
As to the origin of the fire there is
some doubt. The Chinamen who were
turned out of tho smelter flat have
taken up a large tract of land iu the
valley, and have cleared most of it.
They have been burning a good deal of
the part they were clearing, but seemed to be careful about keeping the firo
from spreading, and from a careful examination of where the fire appeared
to have started it seems more likely
that a party of Italians who were do
ing some clearing farther up the valley and also burning fallen timber
were the cause of it.
The Chinamen wore hard at work
all day yesterday trying to keep the
fire from reaching their shacks and
bams. When questioned as to where
the fire started from, no definite in-
formation could be obtained from them
beyond the fact that it came down the
valley. The fire swept np Cottonwood
valley to the gorge going up to the
mines, whree it spread, the largest body
of it going to tbe left, along the valley back of the mountain immediately
behind Nelson. As to whether it will
spr'iad mnch more it is as yet impassible to say, as a great deal will depend on the weather and wind. There
is an immense amount of dry fallen
oedar op the Cottonwood valley, and
the fire having got a good hold on it,
when fanned by a wind quickly drieB
up the bnsbes and trees above it, and
after smouldering for honrs will suddenly blaze up devouring all the
shrubbery and trees iu its way, then
dying down for a time again.
At MoLeod's ranoh, tbo family residing there remained up all Friday
night, us a ohange of wind would
have swept tbe tire right to the barns
aud bouse.
On the road up to the fire the change
from tbe fresh vegetation of the untouched woods to the part burned
over was startling in its suddoness.
The road running parallel to Cotton
wood Creek wound in and out through
the trees, by the water. All around
everything speaking of leafy Juno,
the air oooled by the strong breeze
blowing np from the lake was fragrant
from the many wild flowors exhaling
their perfume. A turn of the road aud
in a few steps a pall of blinding smoke
hid all that was green and beautiful.
Through the winding wreaths of
brown and white vapor all that
could be seen ahead was a few blackened trunks of trees with blazing torch
like tops. The ground instead of being green with the lovely growth of
spring was carpeted with a conple of
inches of hot ashes, soattered everywhere with smouldering embers.
Tho Are was slowly working back
against the wind hut so slowly that it
seemed as if it would soon die out.
The Chinamen were doing thoir best
to check it from extending farther in
their direction, scurrying to evory
threatened spot with coal oil tins full
of water, whioh tbey emptied and then
ran exoitedly back for more.
It was impossible to get near where
the will had stood.   Tan lire was still
burning in the fallen timber, and
having   licked   up   every  green thing
made the ground and rooks throw out
Ileal  like a furnace.
The Humes crossed   the   truck   about
two miles tins side of Cottonwood
Lake, following the heavy growth of
timber up the ravine thai branches oil'
there to tbe eastward, It is not
known yet whether  any damage lias

Loudon, Juno, 3.���The Pall Mull
Gazette makes a foreoasl of the negotiations between President Kruger and
Sir Alfred Miiner. at Bloemfoutaine
which it bases upon information obtained from a high official at Pretoria,
President Kroger was prepared with
the concurrence of the burgers to reduoe

but on an ineonsiilerod vote the Upper

Great Excitement at tbe Aniiounoewent
by the Court of the Decision for

Paris, Juue 3.���Wheu the doors of
the court of cassation wero opened au
itnrneo.Be crowd of people attempted to

time there was great confusion aud
uproar. Tho session opened at 3
o'clock when the president of the comt,

The court alter hearing tbo report, of

and in view of the presentation to tlio
court martial of a secret document
bearing the words ' Co Canaille coad, "
which was capable of influencing
their minds and which is not now regarded as applicable to flroyl'us constitutes a new fact calculated to establish the iunoceuo'i of Dreyfus, and seeing that two authenticated letters,

force of men in a day or two. Below
will bo found a lotter from Messrs.
Elliot & Leunio, solicitors for the London & B. C Goldflolds Company,
wlboh explains itself.
To tho Editor of The Miner:
Sir���Having read tho recent artioles
in The 'tribune and tho "Ymir Correspondents News" anont the lato ao-
tion ot the Ymir Gold Mines Limited
and having received the sanction of
the company to make publio actual
facts iii regard thereto we now address
you: On tlui first day of June instant, the general manager of the oom-
iiniiy Mr. Kobortsou having received
information from the mine that n
number of bands who bad been prevailed upon to quit work were willing to resume but, hud boon threatened
and intimidated to such an extent tbat
a promise of protection was insufficient to induce them to continue, they
requiring to have such protection aotu-
ally given first, consulted us as to the
mutter.
Knowing us wo all know the state
of affaire that bus existed for sometime at Wardner, Idaho, the late affair
at tbe Athabasca mine, the aunoonoed
policy of the Government not only to
enforce the law but permit all oiti-
/.ens to follow their business without
bindranoe or molestation aud afford
such protection as might bo required,
not to remedy,bnt to prevent any damage to property or interference with
that personal liberty which is the
birth right of all British snbjoots, we
took advantage of the presence of the
law officer of tho Crown, the Deputy
Attorney Qeneral, and laid the case
lief ore him and it was after full discussion and careful consideration that
the plan oi soudiug the special oon-
stablee was adopted, prevention being
considered preferable to euro.
We have it on tho tiust authority
that no repetition of tho Waidner
affair will be admitted here.
The Government at first were to
pay tho wages of the specials but as
tho Company were anxious to avoid
tho slightest delay thoy undertook not
only to furnish tbe pay but also incurred tho furtbor coHt of chartering a
speoial train to convoy the men to
Ymir, without any expense to the
country.
A word as to the specials themselves,
thoy wore in most instanoos selected
by Peaoe Officers of ihe Crown and
sent without arms. Captain Forrester
was to accompany them from Nelson
hut whon it was found that the brother stationed at Brooklyn, was the
nic in attendance at tho Assizes, tbey
were sort to report to the local officer
it Ymir, who also received his instructions from the Ciowu officers.
This company has introduoed very
largo amount- nf capital into this country, and has spent in actual development work ubout |200,000 on their
Ymir property with as yet ouly a trilling return, no dividends having yet
been declared.
Since writing the foregoing,we have
learnt thnt four Coeur d'Aleners have
been driven out of our Oity by the officials and another is now under arrest.
Now, Mr. Editor, do you not think
it would bo far belter if instead of
adding fuel to a Bane which is almost extinct, all citizons worthy to
be called citizens would tukn the trouble to ascertain facts liefore publishing
their free advice in regard to any mat-
tor of public moment!
Do you also not think that newspapers winch are supposed to be leaders of
purblio opinion as expiessod in their
columns should not only ascertain the
facts but consider all questions and
Iho facts in connection therewith, in
a quiet judicial frame of mind,'giving
their readers tbe benefit of suon brains
as thoy may lie endowed with, instead of prostituting their talents by
giving vout to their own personal
views, no matter how narrow they
may    bo.    Yours, eto.,

FOOTBALL   OLUB,
PARTISANSHIP.
As an exponent of extreme partisan
ship, tho present Ottawa correspondent
of The Winnipeg Free Press in entitled
to   the   palm.    He excols his immediate   predecessor  in   the  position, and
readers  of   The  Flee Press  will  admit tbat it is as  difficult  as  it  as
it   is   needless.     A   member   of   the
Opposition who rises   to   address   the
House is presumptuous.  If be ventures
to reflect on Ministerial conduct or policy he is obstructive. Especially is it a
crime for e ither of the Tappers, father
or son, to  open   his   mouth.   It   is a
shame they   should be   in  Parliament
at all, but being there it is an outrage
that   their   voices   shonld    be  heard.
Both, Sir Charles Sr., and Sir Charles
Jr., had something to say of Mr. Ogil-
vie's  explanation   of   his  oonneotion
with   that  mining company  to whom
he furnished much  valuable   information. There is no Tower at Ottawa,but
there ought to   be; and   the   Tuppers,
for presuming to criticise the   immaculate Commissioner, shonld have been
forthwith    immured  in   one   of its
darkest dungeons.   There   is   a tradi-
tio n at the Capital tbat free members
of a free Parliament have  a   right   to
discuss  any   matter of publio interest
that comes before it; but   this  is  not
intended to apply generally to   mem
bers of tlio Opposition, and  on no   account does it apply to  tbe    Tuppers.
These two should be gratefnl that they
are    permitted   to  live,   and   should
show their gratitude by   maintaining
unbroken silence   in  the House or by
paying  compliments to  the   Premier
and his party.
Th*Be are not the identical words in
which  the  correspondent referred   to
raves against the   Opposition, and the
Tuppers especially;  but  tbey  are so
near that they may be taken  without
doing   the  gentleman any  injustice.
And it is only  in  degree  that he is
any worse than a   score  of others who
are employed to dish out similar stuff
for the Ministerial  Press.    How readers who bave any respect for their own
intelligence can continue   to  swallow
it from day to   day, without   a symptom of nausea, is a mystery.   In  foot
it is one of the most beautiful exemplifications of tbat highly developed partisan credulity   that came in with the
present Government.    Partisanship in
extreme   form   is   not confined to the
Press, however.     When the hiBtory  of
the present Parliament  shall come to
be  written,   the author,   unless himself a partisan, will say that never before in the  experience of the  Dominion  was partisanship  so  shamefully
displayed from   the  Speaker's ohair.
Sir James David Edgar has been a partisan Speaker   from   the   day he  was
elected to that exalted  position.    This
remark is suggested  by an incident in
connection with the Ogilvie discussion.
Tbe Speaker intervened,  as  he does
with  a frequenoy  that    would  surprise the Parliament at St. Stephens's,
less to preserve the orderly conduct of
debate than to show bis authority and
to  interrupt    Opposition    criticism.
That is a favorite expedient of his.

At tbo meeting it was decided to
withdraw the offer to play Sandon for

Seattle, June 8.���A big rate war
is in piogress on tbe Upper Yukon and
lakes, according to advices brought
bere today fiom Skagway by steamer
Humbolt. Fares from Lake Bennett
to Dawson City havo been reduoed
from $100 to $2.50. Small steamboat
oompanies started the war by making
the rate $65. The Canadian Development Company cut this to $10, and
later to $5. The Bennett Lake Navigation Company met this and went it
one better b y making a rate of $2.50.
Thus tar the cut only applies to
down river travel. It is thought the
war will be of short duration, as its
continuance would result in the destruction of the navigation companies.
Navigation on the lakes and upper
river has been resumed by this time.
Bennett lake was open to small scows
May 29. The steamers expected to sail
in four or five days from tbat date.
The first arrivals from the interior
should reach here abont the middle

A   Murrtsr   Mystery    at   Bridgeport,
Conn, Has Been Solved
Bridgeport, Conn, June ti���The mystery concerning, the alleged mnrder of
Louis Stahlman, the Hebrow peddler
hy Peter Graham, the IS year old boy,
on Wednesday, is thought to have been
solved. According to tho story of the
prisoner's three younger brothers,
Peter discovered the man rausucking
the garret and tried to drive him away
bnt Stahlman picked up an iron bar
and struck at tbe boy. Graham jumped down the stairs Beized his mother's revolver and shot the peddler as
he was coming down. Tho boy then
got the body out into the peddler's
wagon and drove to a deserted lane
where he afterwards claimed to bave
found it.

TO  MAKE  AUTOMOBILES.
The latest reported utterance of the
Premier's, in regard to the bonnd
ary negotiations, iB au explicit contradiction of tbe tumor that a port and
hinterland were demanded as a condition of arbitration. Sir Wilfrid's explanation on the whole is entirely satisfactory. He says the Canadian Commissioners endeavored to reach a settlement through compromise; but this
failing tbey proposed arbitration, on
lines adopted in tbe Venezuelan oase.
More than that he oould not say at
present, but hoped before prorogation
to be able to assure Parliament that
the matter was making satisfactory
progress. The Miner was unable to
believe that tin Canadian Cnmmis-
sioners had insisted on an indefensible
condition, as reported from Washington, and ie glad to have this assurance
from the Premier that then was good
grotnd for its incredulity.

ANGLING NOTES.    |
������������������������������������>��������������������������������>���������������������������������
Really, what with much water (tin
lake water I mouu ; not the bovorage
or tooth wash of Unit ilk) and work.
I am heginhing to bo ashamed of this
heading. Aud now for a piece of fatherly advice. If you ever gut oatight
tripping���1 mean writing indiscreet
things to fair ones or saying things
you "tliilu't ought tor" about people
ami tho like���and desire to pat a new
complexion ou tno offending sentence,
in other words to tell a diplomatic
lio, get a really good dictionary, and
this will enable you with easo to twist
your words, either into a different or
no meaning at all.
Angling notes, iudoid. What r'aes
angling really mean? Strictly speaking the verb���to angle���has nothing
to do with the capture of little fishes.
To angle is "to lure, to eutico, to try
slyly or urtfully to got, as with bait"
and hook, anything or any person.
Of course that is what I want I
try to lure, to entioo my readers, to
try slyly or artfully, and got by my
pen a few dollars tu add lo my slender
income. You ean littingly apply tlio
term to tho luring of flab but those are
tho pure meanings of the word.
Ahem! Now all is plain sailing. I
havo simply to outoh the approval of
The Minor's readers. Yoila tout 1
#   *   *
Washington Irving has written, 1
think, iu his "Sketch Book" that
"there is something in angling that
tonrts to produce a gentleness of spirit. " I havo had this dictum written
in letters of gold under a photogrnh
of my unworthy self, depicted in full
angling costume, and have sent the
samo to my better three quarterB. I
nwait hor reply with interest. Now
last Sunday moruing I felt excessively
geutlo when my Mongolian ohof did
not put in au appearance until 10 a.
m. Ho doesn't understand English���
or rather French iu was���otherwise he
might havo a word to say on the subject. So a proposed water carnival
was indefinitely postponed.
Then I had letters and a mono- j
graph on Nelson to compose, so absolutely "loafed" until about midday
when, finding myself in pyjamas and
boots (the latter had been pat on for
tho Chinamau's especial benefit), it
occurred to mo that I might as well
dress and prepare for my guests a
really good "dejeuner" by way of a
novel sensation in Nelson. What
memories of the Champs Elysees,
and the Bois do Boulogne does not
that word conjure up? I can seo now
the little snow white tables nnrbr the
chestnut trees, the clean shaved waiter
in short alpaca jacket and spotless j
apron, the maitre d'hote resplendant
in broad cloth and silver chain, the
merry laughter of the exquisitely robed
daughters of Paris seated around, the
well bred murmur of tbo "ParisiODs"
iu reply, and finally the menu ! Tremble ye Mongols, yo keepers of cafes in
Kootenay, ye purveyors of garbage galore that we are forced to swallow in
order to sunport life. Hero it is���I
will translate it as far as it is possible
to do so:
Hors d'oevres (untranslnteahle)
Prawns:   Salad of  celery   root: 'An
chovies in oil.
SOUP.
Croute  au pot   (untvanelateable)
ENTREES
Savoury Omelot with Fresh Trufles.
Chicken boiled with white wine sauce
and craw fish.
ROAST
Filet   of  Beef  with   little   pieces  of
trufles and ham fat prioked iu,
roasted to a turn.
Fried Shavings of Potatoes
Green Peas.
SWEETS
A "Uzarine" of   Strawberries  (wild,
from tbe woods)
Cream, Crushed Ice, and  Lemon Verbena.
Black Coffee   and Liquors.
Add   to   this   a  bottle   of  Chateau
Yquem : A banquet of the gods indeed
But compare this with   a  greasy fried
chop or steak, or slab of   Balmon, several nondescript vegetables laid out in
white soap  dishes round  your   plate,
muffins, tea (made  half   un hour ago)
���Please  stop!   Tho    act   of   writing
about these horrors is more disturbing
to the interior than tho roll of the Atlantic.    It is quite   true that  cooking
and dining   aro   accomplishments unknown to the average English woman,
and  for  them are substituted   baking
and boiling, and   feet'ing.    In  Nelson
the commou  view   of  the subjeot appears  to  me   to  be tbat so long as  a
man gets enough  to  eat it is   ingratitude or something  worse   to  criticise
tho quality of his  victuals.    I   almost
fear  that  there  aro  some   who  will
think that because   a  man   disoourses
learnedly or  lovingly  about   cooking,
he is to bo dispised as a glutton or distrusted as a   man of  loose principles.
True,   Dr.   Johnson   declared  that a
man who couldn't get his dinner well
cooked was   not   to be trusted in  the
more important   affairs   of   life.    But
tho doctor's   standard   was   not   very
high;   besides,   ho  was   an   original.
Here now is the Sonrlay dejeuner that I
prepared :   Halibut steaks ; Sauce Hol-
landaise.    Spring Chicken (Marengo),
Kidneys   (Bwster Sauce),    Gooseberry
Fool.   Iced   Coffee.   The   offect    was
magical.   We   had   no desire to  go  a
fishing.    We  sat,   smoked, and "rom-
inisced"     of    Europe    until,    panic
strioken, I   remembered  my "angling
notes. "   It was then late in the afternoon, my work   was   unfinished,   my
ohanceB of  an   evening on  the water
during the coming week  remote,   and
"Hey!   Willow, Waley!" I   cried,   as
I hung my rod on a hat   peg   and  sat
down and wept.    "Never mind; write
them some cookery chat   and another
Scotch story." said  "Lesbia with tho
beaming eye. "   "Or rather, a  sonnet
to your bright orbs?" quotli I.
"Yea verily, if thou wouldst masquerade as a jackass!" replied she.
It is always tho way that if ever I
try to "make the running" with
any sweet lady I somehow ignomini-
ously fail and I have in the end to
bury my wcundod heart in my fish
hooks and frying pans.
No, I haven't "turned the hair" of
a fish this week, though I did try one
evening for half an hoar hat could not,
got a rise. The water is rising too
vapidly for anything like sport but as
j soon as it is stationary, or begins to
' fall, then look out, you fly cracking,
rod splitting sons of guns, for then is
your appointed day. My compnion,
Hiram I will call him (It was Hiram
who "set up tbo pillars at tho porch"
of tho temple in the 1st book of Rings)
managed to basket 16 small fish somewhere near Five Mile Point last Sunday, t forgot that the breakfast is
waiting to be cooked and you want to
know how to cook it. Iu primis,
be "gentle ' and kick your Chinmnen���
if you aro cursed with one of those reptiles���out of the kitchen; or, if your
sex does not permit of this forcible bui.
inelegant proceeding, mako your hus
bund do so, and, if he refuses, ask
somebody else's husband to operate for
you and to stay to breakfast in the bargain.
M. 1. Always fry fish iu oil. The
same oil will servo the purpose for
sometime only keep it is a separate
lard tin. Mind the oil is fresh and
not rancid. Bo sure you don't get cotton seed oil instead of olive oil.
M. a. It ought tbat is herein
written cuusos "headaches in the
lap" of yo who read, or the strangers
within your gates, don't trouble to
send doctor's bills or funeral announcements to tho author of angling
notes. Such bagatelles aro of no interest to him, Hero is recipe (1) for
Halibut Stoak:
Pluco the fish on a shallow dish and
sprinkle it well with salt. The dish
should thou bo half filled with water
which must not. cover the salt. Leave
the fish to soak for ono hour, then cut
into slices, nearly an inch thick, with
out removing the skin. Fill your frying pan half full with oil, wrap the
steaks iu thick white paper and when
the oil is boiling plunge thorn in and
fry until thoy are pale yellow. Take
tho paper oft' before serving aud sprinkle a little lemon juice and cayenne
over the steaks.
Recipe 2. Sauce Hollandaise. Into a
bowl rub one half cup of butter to a
cream; add the yolks of two eggs,
stirred in separately and beaten well;
stir in the juice of half a lemon, add
salt to taste and a pinch of cayenne
popper. Add half a cup of boiling
water and put tho bowl in a pan of
boiling water, stir frequently and
when the sauce is as thick as custard
it is ready for serving.
I think this is enough to sufficiently
injure the livers of Nolson gourmets
for one week, so will defer thechioken,
kidneys, and "czarine" uutil seven
more suns havo set.
As I write these lines the news is
conveyed to me that one san, the glorious sun of a singularly happy life-
has already set, a bright and joyous
sun too, forced suddenly by some unseen power below the mountains of
eternal night. I can imagine his boyish mirth, should he havo been permitted to read some of my "Angling
Notes" for he was my fr.'quent companion in manv a frolio to tho loohs
aud rivers of Scotland and Ireland
and would doubtless recognise many
a yarn. Some of the cookery recipes
have been tasted at the shooting lodge
when he, my dearly;loved friend, was
with me. It is morning, the sun is
enshrouded in a heavy mist I cannot
sleep, I cannot stay in the house
alone with my sad reminscenceB of
former days and as I go forth

DOUBLE BILL AT THE THEATRE.
Bittner Company  Play   "Mother and
Son" and "La Belle Marie."
A double bill was almost a surfeit
for a Nelson audieuce. Both plays
were rather long too, and during the
entr'acts the actors entertained by divers stories and songs, some of whioh
were better than others.
The first play, entitled "Mother and
Son" was sufficiently improper to be
interesting. Messsr. Bittner and Kelly
were good as portly, polite Frenchmen. One, Oaptain Darnel an impossible individual garbed in the uniform
of a Broadway policeman with yellow
antimacassars, ou his shoulders,taught
us, in inaudible tones, how to make
love.
; The best and most artistic performance was the "Felicio" of Miss Mattio
Choate. This lady displayed his-
tronio powers of a high order and is
certainly one of the best actresses that
has been seen in Nelson. By the way,
why did the gentleman call each other
"Mussewer" aud why did they pro-
uounce "Beauohamp" as'BewohongV"
It got tedious at last.
Tho second pieco, "La Belle Marie"
was a first rate play. Miss Choate
again proved bersolf a perfect artiste
and captivated her audience with her
charming impersonation of the heroine. It is to be hoped that Mr. Bittner
will honor Nelson again with a visit
in tho near futuio.
New Yorks, June 8. -The bodes of
three babes, two female and one

The bodies which were wrapped in

oause of death.

The starting np of the Willa property on Wednesday last, means another
working mine in this vicinity. This
move, just at the present time, was an
agreeable surprise to our business men.
The Willa is situated on Red Mountain and like moat of the properties in that neighborhood is a gold-
cupper bearing proposition. It is owned by a joint stock company which is
controlled by Judge Spinks of Vernon
and his friends.
At the Vancouver mine, above town
development workj is steadily going
on. From the No. 1 tunnel a crosscut is being run to the back vein,
which runs prallel to the Vancouver
vein, and is now in 800 feet. In the
No. 3 tuunel a oross-cut is being run,
from tho east drift to the back vein,
and is now in over 100 feet. At a
distance in of 40 feet in the west drift
of tbe No. ii tunnel an upraise is being
put through to the No. 2 tunnel
ahove, and is now np 05 feet. The loss
hy tire a short time ago of tbe bunk
house, has not caused any delay in the
work at tbe mine, ns the office building has been found to be big enough
to accommodate the men until a new
bunk house can be ereoted. Tbis
mine, which last winter Bhipped 400
tans of the hightest grade ore sent out
of the Slooau, will be found in our
list, a steady shipper again next winter and under its present capable man
agement, an equally as good a showing is expected to be made. The
ohange to an eight hour basis will
have no effect in tbe steady development of thj property, as most of the
development has been oarried on under
a system of eight hour shifts and the
union wage of $8.50 per shift has always been paid by this management.

Sandon, June 2.���There are many
rumors afloat that, the Monitor mine,
near Three Forks, is about to change
hands. When the correspondent of
The Spokesman-Review was iu Three
Forks yesterday he was informed that
the mine was offered for $130,000, and
tbat there was $100,000 of ore in sight.
This is vouched for hy several prominent mining men of this camp. A
peculiar cbaracsteristio of the Monitor
ore is, that it carries considerable
gold values,averaging $8 per ton. This
past winter the mine has from the
ore taken out in its development, netted its owners after paying all expenses,
over $10,000. The owners are George
Petty, A. R. Finland, Miss E. J.
Kendall and Ernest Harrup.
On   the   Palmetto,    adjoining    the
Queen Bess,   a   contract has   recently
been   let   for   500 feet of  drifting   on
the number  four tunnel.    This tunnel
will give  a   depth on   its  completion
of 300  feet   below   tbe number  three
lnvel, or a total depth on tbe  ledge  of
000 feet.     Pending the completion   of
this lower tunnel, work has been   discontinued in the upper levels.    In   the
numbers one, two and three   tunnels a
good chute of about 150 feet in   length
has   been   driven   through.     A.     W.
Wright is in charge of the mine.    The
contractors  have  four  men   at work.
Contract   work   is also   being  done
in the joint workings of  the Reco and
Goodenough    mines.    After    driviug
the   number   eight orosscut tunnel   to
the Reco-Goodeuouch vein a rise is be
ing made to connect   with an  incline
winze   sunk   from   the   number    six
level,   on the   dip of  the vein.    This
connection is for air, and is absolutely
necessary  before  further explorations
can be   resumed  in   the  lower  level,
The winze has   been sunk to a   depth
of 92 feet, and the raise is up 75   feet,
The   total distance   between  the  two
levels  is   220   feet   on tho dip of  tbe
veini   Fifteen hundred feet below the
number   eight   level on the  Twilight
claim, owned by  J. M. Harris and F
T. Kelley, and on tbe same lead, eight
inches  of clean   galena  assaying   900
ounces in silver, has been   discovered,
Work   is   to start   on  the   Heather
Belle claim, adjoining the Queen Bess
on the northeast.    The  Heather   Belle
Mining  &  Milling Company owns
group of four    claims.   Considerable
Yakima, Wash.,capital is interested in
the  undertaking, and J. L. Courtright
of Yakima City is in  town  in the in
terest of   the  shareholders, arranging
for the    starting  up of   work.    The
Kroup is  developed  by three  tunnels,
two  on the  Heather  Belle  lead   and
one on the  Atlanta.    These three tun
nels  are  to  be   continued,   and    thi
whole   group   thoroughly    developed,
P.   S. Davis   will be in  charge of the
