DEWET IS STILlT
VERY MUCH IN IT
Nelson,   British Columbia, Monday Evening,   December 17,  1900.
Eleventh  Year
Clever Boer General Giving
the British Troops Lots
of Trouble.
People In  England Realize
That the War Is by No
Means Over.
London, Dec. 17.���4 a. m.���Lord
Salisbury and his colleagues must to-
dav; feel muchj relieved that Parliament was prorogued Saturday. A
grim irony now attaches to Lord
Roberts' description of the war as
"over." Vesterday the War Office
foi first tho time in many months remained open throughout a Sunday,
in response to the demands of tbe public anxiety to learn the news. Lord
Kitchener is reported to have sent a
fresh and urgent request to the Gov-
ciument to send out evory available
mounted man. Wiib General Dewet
again cBcaped through the British
cordon in tho neighborhood of Thaba
N'chuthe serious affairs at Vryheid
and Zaatron and the Magaliesberg disaster confronting them the British
people ask why Lord Robeits is allowed to come home. The Colonial Oflice
announces its decision to enlist 5,(1011
men inBtead of the 1,000 previously
asked to be recruited in Oreat Britain for Oeneral Baden-I'oweU's constabulary which shows that recruiting in South Africa is loss active than
had been anticipated. Despatches
from Lorenzo Marqucz assert that all
the Hoer forces are plentifully supplied with ammunition, but terribly
in want of food and clothing.
Mr. Kruger at Tbe Hague received
Mr. Win. T. Stead yesterday. Mr.
Stead urged him to continue bis tour
of Europe and to go to America. The
Hoer statesman listened attentively
but declined to commit himself by
any definite statement. It is reported
that he is nbcut to remove from hiis
hotel to a private residence, as though
cnnturnplating a prolonged stay at
Tho Hague.
l.ord Roberts, now returning to
England on board tho Canada, did
not go ashore at St. flelena though
the steamer touched thero. Ninety
troopers, members of the 17th Laneas-
ters stationed at Rallincoll, were arrested yesterday for insubordination.
They were about to start for South
Africa and are annoyed at not being
allowed license to carouse.
llaseru, Dec. 7.���It appears that
Dewet's force was twice repulsed before it broke through the Hritish lines
i" the: neighborhood of Thaba N'Chu.
In tlie third attack Dewet led in person. With a few determined followers he charged and broke; the British
lines, the rest of the command following. He was forced, however, to
leave in the hands of the British a 15-
pounder and 15 wagons with ammunition and stores. Commandant llaas-
broek with a command aud two guns
tried to get through Sprlngkrat's
Nek, hut was driven back with a loss
of 40 mon.
Aliwal North, Capo Colony, Dee. 15.
���A party of Brabant's Horso, consisting of raw recruits, engaged a superior force of Boers, December 13, near
Zastron. Orange River Colony, losing
four killed, 18 wounded and IM taken
prisoners.
VICTORY
A Bright Report Gomes to
Relieve South African
Gloom.
London, Dec.  17.���The report ot an
othar   Bevere battle resulting in Brit
ish victory is  current  bore.    Accord
ing to the story the  fighting began at
daybreak     today   nnd   lasted   several
hours.  The Boors, who numbered from
J,500 to 3,000 men, wore surrounded at
the Orange River and totally defeated
with very heavy losses in killed and
wounded,
captured.

The Hague, Dee. 17.��� 1 0vinc.i.
despatob from Grand Rapids, Mien.,
inviting him to the United States,Mr.
Kruger has wired that he had not ar-
"ived at any decision with regard to
visiting America.
WAR OFFICE REFORM.
London, Deo. 17.���The Secretary of
���State for War, Mr.Wm. St. John Broderlck, has appointed a committee to
deal with the question of War Office
reforms. The committee will consider the system of contracts and the
possibility of further decentralization
and more expeditious working. Tho
chairman of the committee is Mr.
Clinton Edward Dawkius of the firm
of J. S. Morgan Jt Co.
TROOPS BUSY.
Americans in Philippines Kept on the
Go After tho Insurgents.
Manila, Dee, 17.���Advices from
Iloilo, Island of Panay,report that the
American troops have been moving
northward and westward for several
days and that detachments of the
sixth, 18th and 20th regiments hare
been active near their stations. The
insurgent losses dnring the last 10
days there have been five killed, several wounded and forty take, prisoners. The Americans lost two killed
and three wounded. Large numbers
of the natives are, however, swearing
allegiance to the United States. In
various recent attacks and expeditions
in Southern Luzon, the insurgents
have lost eight killed, seven wounded, and about 20 captured. The
Americans have one killed and two
wounded. Gen. W. Horton reports
that 430 natives have entered Calauso
for registration. Most of the time of
the Philippine commission is now devoted to the tariff bill. Judge Taft
said today that generally speaking the
now rates would be about 40 per cent
of the existing rates.
'It will be essentially a tariff for
revenue," he remarked, "but some
industries that are already established
will be given protection. The commission is not considering the constitutionality of taxing United States
produce. The precedents have been
established in the case of Porto Rico
nd by the military government of the
Philippines. The bill requires the
washing'of cotton goods,so as to eliminate the clay used by European manufacturers which increases the
weight. This will incidentally favor
iVmeriean goods. The rate on kerosene will bo reduced from 11 cents a
allon to four. Some Ameiicau goods
will be admitted free and almost all
will come in at reduced figures."
RECOVERING BODIES.
New York Normal School Burned and
Several Lives Lost.
Dunkirk Depot, N.Y., Dec. 17.���Six
charred bodies that perishod in the
destruction of the Fredonia Normal
school have boen recovered, five of
which were found in a heap, this afternoon and at the foot of the firo escape on tho Terrace Street side of tho
building. Their bodies were burned
beyond all scmblanco of recognition
and and were crossed like so mnny
pieces of wood. A screen across tho
io exit cvidontly blockod their path
to safety as those who did descend by
this spiral stairway reached it by
crawling along tho edge of the mansard roof. Untertaker Tiffany has
the six bodies marked by numbers but
hopes to identify at least one by a
ring he found on a finger of one girl.
Coroner Charles Blood stated to the
Associated PreBS correspondent to
night that he would proceed with an
inquest at once and be adviBed and assisted by District Attorney Green.
Nothing but a rigid Investigation will
satisfy either citizens or relatives.
It Is certain that one grave in Forest
Hill cemetery will mark Mie resting
placo of all.
A CHRISTIAN PAPER.
London, Deo. 17.���The first Issue of
the Loudon Sun, under the editorship

FOR A MINING   BUREAU.
Resolution Adopted By a Public Meeting in Grand Forks.
Grand Forks, B. C, Dec, 15.���At
a largely attended public meeting
held last evening a resolution urging
the Dominion Government to create a
mining bureau and to appoint a Cabinet Minister having speeial charge of
mining and mining interests was carried. It was also decided to seek the
co-operation of the various Boards of
Trade and kindred organizations
throughout the Dominion. The leso-
lutlon. which was proposed by Aid.
McCallum, seconded by II. N. Galer,
assistant treasurer of the Granby
smelter, is ns follows:
"That the rapid development of the
mining industry in our opinion justifies the creation of a mining bureau
and the appointment of a minister
having special charge of mining and
mining interests; that since the year
1887 tho Province of British Columbia
has produced in gold, silver lead and
copper, values amounting to $i8,375,-
451; that the average value of 185,000
tons of ore produced in Rossland camp
was $18 per ton ; that the tonnage of
the Boundary country is at present estimated at 100,000 tons of ore in round
numbers, which will probably be quadrupled within tlio next year; that
the development of coal mining along
tbe Crow's Nest Pass Kailway.on Vancouver Island, and in the Eastern
Provinces, makes it, in our opinion,
necessary that a great industry, such
as mining, sliould have a special department in the Government of Canada.
"Be it therefore resolved, that in
the opinion of this meeting, the Gov-
crnor-Genernl-in-Council be petitioned to create a new portfolio to be
known as tho Mining Bureau, and
that a minister lo tako charge thereof
be appointed and that, in the opinion
of this meeting, sueh minister should
bo ono of tho representatives ot tlie
Province of British Colombia, as being the greatest mineral producing
Province of Canada,and heing at present unrepresented   in   the   Cablnot."
Tho following committee was appointed for tlie purpose of communicating with Boards of Trade and mining associations: II. N. Galer, L. P.
Eckstein. Dr. Westwood, William
Spier and W. A. Spencer, the local
managers of tho Eastern Township,
anil Merchants' Bank of Halifax, respectively, and W. A. Harkin, Secretary.

MR. FLETCHER
IN THE FIELD
Will Try Again  to Become
Mayor of the City of
Nelson.
Brought Out at a Meeting of
Citizens on Saturday
Evening.
At a meeting of citizens held in the
Houston Block on Saturday evening
Mr. Frank Fletcher waa brought out
as a candidate for Mayor to oppose
Mr. A. L. McKillop. Among those
present at the meeting were Mayor
Houston, n. R. Cameron, Fred Stark-
ey, John A, Turner, D. M. Carley,
George Robinson, James McPhee, E.
C. Davison, Jacob Dover, and a host
of others, the majority of tliein recognized as friends of Mr. Houston.
Mr. John A. Turner was tbo first
gentleman mentioned in connection
with the candidature but he declined
to run. Tnere were several things he
said which would prevent him from
becoming a candidate, and which
would, also, ;n tho event of his eiec-
tion, prevent him from giving the necessary time to his duties as mayor.
Then Mr. Fletcher's name was suggested, and, as had already been arranged, ho was tendered the nomination. In this connection Mr. Houston
made a speech in which he stated that
Mr. Fletcher deserved to be elected to
the mayoralty and that it "was coming to him. " Mr. Fletcher formally
accepted the honor thrust upon him
and after everyone had shiiKcn hands
and assured each other that such a
combination could not be beaten, the
meeting adjourned.
TEACHERS' EXAMINATION.
Opened at the Public School Today
But no Pupils Were Present.
A teachers' examination to qualify
candidates to attend normal school for
the coming year was opened tills
morning at the public school of this
City as well as at Victoria, Vancouver
and Kamloops. There were no pupils
in attendance at the local examination and Mr. William Burns, inspector for this district, and who is presiding as examiner, stated that ho
thought that all who were wishing to
take tho examination had gone to
Vancouver. Tho rirst session of tbe
Provincial Normal school will open
there on Wednesday, January 0, 1001.
The subjects to be taken at this examination arc reading,writing, arithmetic, geography, English grammar
Canadian and English history, physiology and composition. Mr. Burns
will leave this week for Vancouver
where he will act as instructor at the
Normal school and probably assist in
reading the papers of the present examination, in speaking of the probabilities of a high school for Nelson
Mr. Bums stated that it was necessary for a town lirst to contain 20 pupils properly qualified to enter sueh
an institution. There are at present
12 pupils who are taking the high
school course at the loeal public
Bchool, and 12 more tried tbe entrance
examination which was held here
last Friday and Saturday. If the latter pupils are successful, for the result has not yet been made known,
'ben Nelson will be properly qualified
for a high school. Mr. Burns also
said that the Department of Education was willing to help this city get
a high school, and with the present
favorable conditions, probably only
a short time would elapse befoie Nelson would have one.
FRANK PETERS SAYS FAREWELL
The Popular C. P. R. Mon Feted By
Ills Nelson Friends.
Mr. Frank W. Peters leaveB today
for Vancouver to take charge of his
new onice there ns general freight
agent of the C. P. R. On Saturday
evening at the Hotel Hume he wns
given a farewell reception hy a large
number of his friends. The evening's
programme consisted of songs, speeches, toasts, etc., but the most pleasing
feature was the presentation of a
purso, containing a good sum,and also
two sets of cnndelabra und a handsome silver tureen, for which Mr, Pet
ers made   most   appropriate acknowledgement.
The following address   was read before the presentation was made:
F. W. Peters, Esq., Assistant General
Freight Agent,   C,   P.   R.,   Nelson,
B. C. :
Dear Sir���It is with feelings of deep
regret that a few of your many
friends in Nelson meet you on the evo
of your departure for fresh fields of
labor on the Pacific Coast.
Since your advent to our city you
have] identified yourself with every
thing tnat tends to advance and build
up a young community, and it will be
a source of satisfaction to you in future to know that your presence in
our midst has been felt and your absence deplored.
While ever zealous in advancing aud
fnithering the interests of your
company, you havo always treated the
merchants and those with whom you
were brought in contact in business
with due consideration and in the utmost spirit of fairness.
Permit us in passing to say, that
not only with respect to yourself, but
with all their selections of oflicials
for the Kootenay District, the Canadian I'aeilie Company have been most
fortunate in the men they hnve chosen, who, while watchful of the Company's welfare, have taken a keen interest as citizens in the progress and
development of tbe country, and in
bringing its requirements to tho attention of their superior ollieers.
As striking evidence of thiB we
need only refer to your connection
witli the Nelson Street Railway as
president, and the fact that it was
through your efforts in a great measure, that British capital showed its
faith in our young city by constructing tne first street railway in the interior of British Columbia.
In the year 1898 the Canadian Pacific recognized the growing importance of Southern British Columbia
from a railway standpoint, and this
necessitated the appointment of an
able, energetic ollicial to establish and
manage its freight business. You
were selected to fill this important position, and that your energy and services have mot with approval is shown
by your promotion to a more important post.
Our sincere wish is that this change
may bo only the precursor of furtlier
advancement, until step by step as
years roll by, you will eventually become one of the controlling spirits in
.the management of Canada's great national highway: but whether you become a great railway magnate or not,
wo believe you will never lind closer
friends than those you have made in
our midst. Please accept on behalf of
Mrs. Peters and yourself the accompanying gifts as a reinemberance of
your many friends in Nelson.
December 15th, 1000.
STABBED TO DEATn.
Camden, N. J., Dec. 17.���John
Sterling, of this city, was stabbed to
death shortly after midnight by one
of three nogroes who held him up
while he was walking along the
street. Sterling was accompanied by
his uncle, Isaac Mathews, when the
attack was made. The police arrested a large number of negroes on eus-
picion and among them was Howard
Davis, who admitted being with the
man who attacked Sterling, but denied that he had anything to do with
the stabbing.
BRITAIN AFTER PAYMENT.
Constantinople, Dec. 17. ���Owing to
the success of the United States in
pressing claims for compensation in
connection witli the Armenian disorders Great Britain is now urging the
Ottoman Government to pay similar
claims put lorward by the British
subjects. It is expected that energetic
means will be taken to obtain a settlement.
ELECTRICITY
MAY BE USED
G.P.R. Considering Installation of it for the Rossland Hill.
Will Be Adopted If It Proves
Cheaper to   Operate
Than Steam.
SNAP FOR THE GOVERNMENT.
Colon, Colombia,Dec. 17.���The British gunboat Pheusant arrived at Panama Saturday. Tbo British steamer
Taboga, seized by the Colombian Government some time ago, leaves today
with another armed Colombian expedition to quell a disturbance at
Chopo. The government force is ux-
pected to achieve an easy victory.
ROBBERY OF RELICS.
Paris, Dec, 17.���A robbery that
bears a remarkable resemblance to that
perpetrated u few days ago at the
museum of Greenwich Hospital in
England has been committed at the
Toulon museum, the thief obtaining
Admiral Boudin's baton, swords of
honor, chronometer and medals aud
orders.
INAUGURAL ADDRESS.
New York, Dec. 17.���Lord Strathcona will go to Aberdeen today, says
The Tribune correspondent, to deliver
his inaugural address as Lord Rector
of the University. Tills is the first
time this honor has been conferred
upon a Canadian.
Mr. W. II. Dowsing arrived   In   the
.City last   evening from   Spokane.    He
'states   that  things   nre rather   quiet
thero at the present time,
There ia a movement on foot among
the C. P. R. oflicials to do away with
steam and use electric power for tbe
run between Rossland and Robson.
Some of the ollieers of the railway
company from the Coast have already
been in consultation with the officers
of the West Kootenay Power and
Light Company concerning the proposition. When Captain Troup was seen
this morning, he stated that tho company was thinking of installing eleo-
trlc power, if that company could
produce figures to show that the haulage can be done at a lower rate than
by steam. Tho railroad company finds
that It costs considerable to haul
freight over the route between Rasa-
land and Robson, and naturally desires to cut the cost of this haulage
down as much as possbile. In the
conference had with the electric company, Messrs. Marpole, general superintendent of the Pacific division,
and Cross, the master mechanic of the
line west of Winnipeg, said they desired to substitute electricity for
steam, and that they would want
about 2,000 horse power, available at
all times. They would pay, however,
only for what power they used. Provided the power could be had at such
a price that it would be more economical than steam power, the Intention was to put in a complete electrical equipment, including trolley wire
and electric locomotiveB. The freight
and passenger cars will, of course,
be the same as those at present in
use, but as soon as a train bound for
Rossland arrived at RobBon the steam
locomotive would be taken off and the
electric one attached to It and it
would be brought to that city. One
reaBon given for the contemplated
change is because the wear and tear on
a locomotive on tho steep grades between Rossland nnd Trail is very
great. The Shay locomotive, which at
present is doing the heavy work, is
in the shops frequently, and repairs
to it are expensive. In view of the situation the officials of tho C. P. R.
havo determined to use electricity aa
a motive power on the road between
Rossland and Robson. It is quite
possible, too,that after Its capabilities
havo been fully proven its use may be
extended to other portions of the road
where tho grades are steep. On the
main line, however, where in the
main tbo grades are not steep, It Is
claimed that it will be some time before electric^powcr will be used.
Tho Great Northern Railway has
under consideration a plan for using
elcctrto power to hnul their trains
over tlio Cascade mountains. There Is
a splendid waterpower on both slopes
of thu Cascade mountains, ami these
are to be utilised for the generation
of the electric^power.
Tho West Kootenay Power St Light
Company has tho proposition of the
Canadian I'aeilie Railway under consideration, and will in a short time
give an answer. Mr. A. Lome Campbell, manager of the Kootenay Power
St Light Company, has beon East, and
is now on his way back, and nettling
will be done with the proposition until ho returns. As all the power at
present developed by the Kootenay
Company is either is use or contracted
for.lt is thought nothing much in the
way of furni-hlng the C. P. R. with
power oan be done until the additional plant of a capacity of 20,000 horse
power is Installed.
SHIP OVERDUE.
New York, Dec. 17.���About 80
steamships duo yesterday had not
been reported late last night. The
storms on the Atlantic and headwinds
are detaining tho Umbria from Liverpool ; La Champagne from Havre; Victoria from Gibraltar; Bulgaria from
Hamburg and Rotterdam from Rotterdam. Some of tbo overdue fleet
have been out since the last of November.

that the Government could not be carried on without her intervention, and
when it could be shown that the limited creation of Senators allowed by
the Act would apply an adequate remedy. " This means, in plainer words,
that Her Maiesty does not intend to
allow herself to be used as a mere tool
to servo tbe ends of party bo_se_ in
Canada.
There is no nnusual eonliict between
the two Houses at the present time.
The Senate does nol happen to be in
accord with fLie majority iu the Commons in their general oollieul views,
but there is nothing in the constitution to make this a crime. It is conceivable that the tiiuu may eonio when
the Senate will put itself in permanent antagonism to tlie well understood
wishes of the country. This is by no
means likely, but possible; and should
it come,it will then be time enough to
move under a provision of the constitution that was designed to meet such
an emergency. It has not come yet.
nor is it in sight. Meantime the
country will survive and even go on
prospering, although everything in it
may not be put at the mercy of tbe
present Liberal majority.

today at the announcement that Mr.
Frank Fletcher waB in the field as a
candidate for -he Mayo.alty. Two
years ago he joined hands with Mr.
McKillop iu a municipal ticket opposed to the spread of Houstonism. A
year ago Mr. Mclvillop supported him
as a candidate in opposition to the
same inRueeeo. The two have been
working together, and it was suppused
to the same end. _Vb year Mr.
MoKillqp has been induced to put
himsei; in i.e running tot tbe Mayoralty, and ..'s 1. nr.r.j e is but a few
hours old when 't is announced that
be former a 'y iB '.o oppose him.
Whether this surprise is due to a
change in tlie iines or the muuuerJ
wo must leave to otoe'. to judge for
there i.c Ives.
In the inte.es,, o" per. ie and q: ct-
ness and good fee1 ng ri". deprecated
opposition to Mr. J ci l!op when the
came of another wo thy and much esteemed citizen, Mr.Turner, wan mentioned as a possible candidate. We
think there !s even more reason to re
get a contest between two such
men as Mr. McKillop and Mr. F.etcher. But '.be B'.ep has been taken, and
].i_.e l i_g it, will do no . ood. As In
the ca_e wKh Mi. Tui.ier, there il
'.he comforting assuiance that whichever wins the town will huve a good
Mayor. It will be a friendly contest
��� at least it will be a contest between
two men who have heretofore wo.ked
together in what Ihey believed to be
the best interests of the City, and
nothing worse than a fee'.ng of
friendly rivalry should distinguish
either themselves or their supportots.
Between two such candidates ihere is
perhaps lilllechoice, unless the cam
paign shall develop differences that do
not yet appear; and the quiet citizen
whoso chief concern is to have our
civic affairs judiciously and economically managed can only hope that the
better man may win.
Mr. Houston says The Miner always
blunders. Perhaps; but with more
reason it can retort that Mr. Houston
and his paper always misrepresent.
The Mirier never stated that because
certain citizens, or liny citizens, had
induced Mr. McKillop to become a
candidate he shoulu not be opposed.
It thought and still thinks that Mr.
McKillop is an altogether worthy and
excellent candidate, and would make
an altogether worthy end excellent
Mayor; and being strong in that belief it did not see the wisdom or necessity of opposing him, even with another candidate quite as worthy and
excellent. But if any number of good
citizens think otherwise, well and
good. The Miner may deprecate it,
but it has no intention to quarrel
with it. It has thought that there
have been dissensions enough in our
little community during the last year
or two, without strirring up more of
them, and especially between friends
and fellow workers. That is a simple enough attitude to be understood,
surely, nnd unless Mr. Houston is
growing more and more stupid as be
advances in years there can be no ex.
cuse foi misrepresenting it.

THE   SENATE.
A few days ago it was announced
from Ottawa, on the authority of one
of the army of correspondents who infest tho place and who either find
news or make it. that It was the intention of the (lovernment to take advantage of a clause of the constitution to appoint six additional Senators. It is thought that with these
six the tiovernmenet.would be enabled
to control both llmecs of Parliament.
It so happens, however, that the appointment of additional members does
not rest with the Government, but
with the imperial authorities. It happens also that an attempt of this kind
was made a number of years ago, and
failed. Mi. .Mackenzie, while Premier, was greatly disappointed and incensed at the action of the Sennte in
defeating some British Columbia legislation of his, and before bis nnger
wns allowed to cool be appealed to tho
Imperial authorities to appoint those
additional Senators which were permitted under a special provision of the
British North America Act. Tho
Montreal Star has taken the trouble
to look up the correspondence that
took plnce. l.ord Kimberley wa Col-
emi; 1 Secretary at tbe time, and in reply to the appeal irom'.Ottawa Informed Mr. Mackenzie and his (Jovernment
that the power vested In Her Majesty
"was Intended to be e.<_rclbed In order to provide a means of bringing
the Senate into accord with the House
"I Commons In the e\ent of an actual
collision of opinion between the two
Bouses,
His -eoriislllp continued; "Her Majesty .iouIi neit bu advised to take
the responsibility of interfering with
the constitution of this Senate except
upnii ar, occasion when It hud boen
made apparent thnt a difference had
arisen between the two Houses of so

Merry Mountain Maid.
The best looking girl in tho Tine mountain country wns Susan Nutter, nnd Ku-
niin wus extremely not lo say foolishly
fond of Jim Davis, u young man who
was my chief tinilierinan in the season
nnel who owned uml conducted a Rood
farm i" thb river bottom as n side issue,
Jim wns the cutch of the mountains, nnd,
like other men in that happy class, he
was careless nml stood a fair chance of
losing what ourjht to be his because he
was too sure of it. Susan was just tlie
pit] for him, but he had almost worn out
her patience by his dillydallying policy,
mid one day I thought Ihe enel had surely
come, and it was nil up witli Jim, who
was a favorite of mine us a winner of the
Susan slakes.
"I want to sec the best dress pattern
you got in the store, colonel," she said to
ine as 1 sat out in front of lho commissary one day, "and bcln ml.h'ty pertickolor
1 want you to wait on me," she added,
with n smirk not usual to Susan.
"Oh, Indeed," 1 said dinll'mcly, going
ground behind the counter, "something
most be co'mg to happen?"
"1 reckon thur is," she admitted frankly.
������flood for you," 1 laughed, "and I'm
flail Hint Jim has gut his senses at Inst."
"Jim?" she sniffed disdainfully.
" 'Tain't Jim es for ez I know."
"Not Jim?" 1 almost shouted, for Jim
was my chosen for her. "Not Jim? Well,
Who is it?"
"Oh, that's for me lo know nnd you to
find out, colonel," she laughed, provok"
Ingly, ami gave ine no further satisfaction. She bought the Booth and went
away, ami two boars later Jim came in
from work nml said he' was going over
the mountain that night with oue of the

NEW ENGLAND   ECONOMY.
There is a little settlement of New
Hampshire people in Kiowa County,
Col. Among other things they brought
with them the New Hampshire aversion to using any more word.; in conversation tii'iin are absolutely necessary. Two of them met on the ruad
recently and indulged iii the following dialogue;
"Morale' Si."
"Mornin' Josh. "
"Whal'd you give your horse for
bots?"
"Turpentine."
"Mornin'."
"Mornin'."
A few days later the men met
again, and here's tho way a hard luck
story wus told in mighty few   words:
"Mornin' Si."
"Mornin' Josh."
"Whnt'd you say you gave your
horse for bots?"
"Turpentine."
"Killed mine."
"Mine too."
"Mornin'."
"Mornin'."
COULD THEY DO IT?
"Thero is one thing I am afraid of
in connection with this Kruger craze
in Paris."
"What's that? War with England?"
2 "No,I'm afraid those wild Parisians
will try and force the Kruger style of

A     correspondent      writing     from
Houghton, Mich., to  the Minneapolis
Journal has tho fullowiug to say
about tlie Calumet and Ilecla: In addition to enriching its shareholders
witli wealth compared to which tho
fabled hoard of Croesus was but indigence, the Culuuiet and Ilecla Company has done many other things in
the third of a century since the first
copper was taken from tbe conglomerate. It gives employment to more
than 5,000 men, at the highest average wages paid by any mine east of
the Rocky Mountain camps, it operates a railroad boasting two locomotives for overy mile of mainline; runs
large sawmill; operates two stamp
mills and is building third, the three
to be oabaple of crushing 10,000 tons
of rock daily; runs two smelters, ono
of which is at South Luke Linden,
Mich,and one at Black Rock, Buffalo;
owns and operates ship a canal which
was built by the company ; owns and
operates two systems of waterworks
ut Calttmet and one at Lake Linden,
the pumping engine "Michigan,"
witli a daily capacity of 60,000,1100
gallons, much the largest pump in
the world, being located at the latter
point; owns and operates pumps having a greater daily capacity than
those owned by any other firm or cor-
poration in the world, with the possible exception of tho City of Chicago;
owns and operates four complete lire
departments, two of which arc on
the surface at the mine, one at tlie
mills and ono underground; also a
private telephone exchange, connected with the Bell long distance lines,
some of the instruments being located nearly a mile deep in the bowels
of the earth ; owns the greatest and
deepest mining shaft in tho world,
tho wonderful Rod Jacket vertical,
only 380 feet less than a full mile in
depth, and which cost upwards of
85,000,CO to sink and equip; owns
and operates machinery having more
than 50,000 horso power; owns the
most powerful engine ever wurked on
land, the "Mackinac," of 8,000 horse
power; owns more than a thousand
dwellings, rented to employes, and
owns the land on which more than
another thousand homes have heen
built by employes; owns a half dozen
school houses, the use of which is
given free to various school districts;
maintains a free library containing
books in more than a score of languages; maintains a free club house
for employes; employs persons speaking 3-1 different languages, and
has Btanding upon its grounds more
than 311 churches, toward the erection
of all of which the company bus aided. In sumo respects tho co.ipany is
decidedly autocratic: for instance
