Tenth Year
Evils of Unwise and Democratic Legislation.
THE EIGHT-HOUR LAW
London  Stock Exchange and   Kootenay
Minos���Eight   Hour Law a
Retrograde Step.
A gentleman who is largely interest
ed in some of the principal mining companies of this Provinco aud who moreover has had an experience, extending
ovor mnny years, in the mining markets of the old conntry, was speaking
yesterday, to it reoresentative of The
Miner, on the mining conditions of
British Columbia at tho preseut mo-
mont. The following is the substance
of what he said .
During the last year British Columbia has been passing through a crisis.
Two years ago tho general opinion 011
the Loudon market was that the natural resourcos of the country and the
lark of proper and sufficient development of mining properties llien, haraly
Warranted a huge outlay of capital in
B. 0.
During the last two yeirs, how
ever, this opinion has to some extent
been rooflifi'd. Two years ago thorp
were only two large financial bouses in
London who operated in British Columbian mines. There ar.-i now over
80. The country has been, in the eyes
of the London market, passing
through a crisis but that crisis has
been almost past. Prior governments of
the Province, through uot distinguished for their brilliancy, were considered
safe and, ill the whole, aiming for
too welfare of tlio country.
Development had progressed steadily,
railway enterprise hud increased, and
at length a definite ami considerable
market had been established in British
Columbia mines. A market is a fie
titions fact, aud depends largely on
some ill) or 40 brokers who practically
make it.
But the present reactionary and almost socialistic government has al
ready created a panic iu the B. 0.
market. This pitiiic, owiug to a similar one in the African market which
has absorbed so much attention, has
not yet spread widelv. Thero is
still time lo undo the mischief
wrought by receut legislation, It
is capital and capital only that the
Province now wauls. When capital
has been diverted hero, has been sunk
in the ground and has begun to show
good returns, thou and only then is
tho time to consider the evils, real
or imaginary, which attend the lot of
the miner.
It would need but a breath of distrust or want of confidence to divert
capital  from tho country and even
tho main liuo between Winnipeg and j I
Vancouver, and all Slo ian Lake points I fl
will leave at 7 a. in. Mail, however,
for this train will havo to he posted
the night before. Rossland and Trail
mail leaven ou the Nolson & Fort Sheppard train and elosns at 8:45 a. in,
The Crows' Most Pass mail will continue at present as b fore, three times
a week, leaving at 10:80 n. m. and ar-
riviii" at 2 :80 a. m. In tho post olllce
jm all night man will bo kept on to
sort and distribute tho mails but in
the future the general delivery window
will be closed at 7 p. ni. through tho
week aud all day .Sunday.
A   DEMONSTRATION   IN FORCE.
Powerful British Fleet Assemble at
St. Johns, Newfoundland.
St. Johns, Nfld., Juno 17.���It is understood here that the coming visit of
Admi'al Bedford will take the British
warships Crescent, Prosporine and
tjuail to this port, where he will meet
Commodore Gilford's squadron composed of Comus, Alert, Buzzard and
Columbine. It is intended as a demonstration in force against the French
squadron consisting of the Isly, Trou-
des and Fulton, in view of the determination of the British government to
bring the fishery dispute to an issue
this season.
NEWS FROM ROSSLAND.
Rossland, June 17.���A public banquet will be tendered Hon. Charles H.
Mackintosh by the citizens of Rossland
nn the occasion of his return from England, Tuesday evening next. Although the price of tickets was fixed
at $10, all available seats, ISO, have
already been engaged. Delegates are
doming from Nelson, Spokane, Greenwood, Grand Forks and Columbia.
Tho occasion promises to he a memorable ono.
A romantic marriage took place here
today. Fully halt .. couti rv ago George
KnobleJ and Bertha Weidel weut to
school together aud subsequently became engaged, circumstances separated
them, however, and in the course
of time each of them married and for
25 years the two never mot, eventually
one lost a much loved husband the
other mourned the loss of a devoted
wife.
Each learned by some means of the
lonely condition of the other, they mot
again and tbe early affection which
had sc long lain dormant their breists
sprang into life with unabated vigor.
The rest followed as a matter of
course, the pair came here yesterdny
and wore married this morning hy
Rev. G. H. Morden. The groom is
aged 07 and the bride 59. The happy
pair left on tbo noon train for their
future home iu Colville.
THE   TOAD   MOUNTAIN   TRAIL.
to
take away that which she already hath.
The present   oriRis,   unless  speedily
chocked, may undo all the work of the
last two   years  and   throw   back   the
country to   its   original   state.    Then
where would  bo   your Rosslands  and
NelsonsV     Daad,     dead,      absolutely
dead.    Agriculture here is a more   cypher.    Trade is dependent on the rain
es  which   are   r'ependant in   turn  on
foveign capital.    Three weekB   ago, 111
large   mining  companies   in   British
Columbia, were ready   for flotation on
the    London   market.    Of     theso   11
have  beon   bold   baok   owing   to the
present unsatisfactory stato   of affairs,
two ,onlv,   which   hud  advanced   too
far to withdraw,   namely, the Granite
Gold Mines   and the Enterprise  being
floated.    A     few   yesrs   ago   a  similar crisis   was   witnessed in the   New
Zealand   market.    That    country possessed resources and advantages fur superior to thoso   of   British   Columbia.
Then a   democratic   government came
in power   o"d   worked   havoc.   Lnws
restricting   hours  of   labor  and other
socialistic     aud   utterly     unpractical
statutes wore   passed.    And   now   the
New Zealand mining market is a dead
letter on the London Stock   Exchange.
No   capital   can be induced in   that
direction and thoso  who  havo nlready
sunk    thoir   money    thore  prefer  to
leave it there and wait for a wiser and
more boneficial legislation   to como into power.     New Zealand has other resources to fall back on ; British Columbia has none.
It, is for the electors of   British   Columbia to ponder these things in their
ons ider whether it is wise
Numerous complaints have lately
been made about tho present statu of
the Toad Mountain trail. Last night
a well known citizen who ocoupies
his busiuess in mines and mining
trails besought The Miner to make
public the grievance. The trail is a
government road ; it is the highway
to the Hall Mines, the Athabasca,
the Dandy and also to numerous clonus
nn Toad Mountain. Two weeks ago a
bridge on the trail was destroyed by
lire but no steps have yet been taken
to repair tbe same. At this point and
iu other places tbe trail is absolutely
[longerons especially for horsemen.
Tlio complaiuauts hope that, by making this matter public, those whose
duty it is to make the necessary repairs, will give their attention to it.

New York, June 17.���A prominent
Frenob newspaper man, M. Henri
Turet, special correspondent of La
Eolaire and La Monde Illustre, and
chief editor of the La Petit Republi-
que, retnrned from the Philippine Islands by way of Vancouver B. O,, and
sailed for France today, in order to report the result of his mission to his
papers.
Speaking of the American troops,
Turot said: "The American troops,
have iu my opinion rations which
are too heating. Admirably supplied
with provisions the soldiers eat too
much aud not enough rice. Yonr
soldiers fight wilh great bravery bnt
it is impossible not to remark the laok
of discipline among the volunteers.
The latter conduct themselves well under fire, but they pay little attention
to obedience to their chiefs. In
spite of tho energetic orders of these
chiefs there has been regrettable pillaging. Also at times the volunteers
have committed acts of really grave
lack of discipline.
"During one of the expeditions of
General Lawton against Santa Cruz,
some of the volunteers threw their
r-tfles ij the river and refused to go
further. It does not seem to me possible to hope tor a complete victory .luring the rainy season. The difficulty
ol campaign in this country of mountains and excessive heut, must not be
forgotten. It also seems to be incontestable that for this conquest of the
interior 100,000 men will not bo too
many. We know in France what the
system of "little parcels" has cost.
It is an example which the United
States would do well not to follow."

Representatives of Various Unions
Hold Meeting in Buffalo.
Buffalo, Juue 17.��� A secret meeting
of representatives trom the coal heavers union, the ore handlers, elevator
men, marine fireman, freight handlers
and grain shovellers was held tonight
to consider the next step to be taken in
an endenrvor to force the Erie Railroad Company to grant the demand of
the freight handlers for an increase of
wages.
The situation was thoroughly dis-
onssed aud the proposition was drawn
up demanding tbe increase. This
proposition will be submitted to the
Erie company by a committee on Monday.
Should the oompany again refuse to
grant the increase the committee is to
report back to the different unions
and a general strike of all men employed along tbe docks will at once
be ordered.

HALL MINES MEDICAL SERVICE.
Yesterday Doctor Hall was informed
of the fact tbat, under the new statute, he had received a majority of
votes in favor of his appointment as
medical officer for the smelter. The
Silver King miners will probably decide today tho same question. As yot
no appointment has been made or
will be made until the vote from the
mine is known. Should Dr. Hall obtain the appointment it is probable
that the Canada Book and Drug Company will supply tbe necessary diugs
for tho Hall Mines' employees.

Berlin, June 17.��� The recent developments at the peace couferenco aro
generally commented upon hero and
the statements of the foreign papers,
particularly the English, that the
German representatives at Tho Hague
are opposed to arbitration, have beeu
noted with displeasure. Almost the
entire press of Germany gives indignant voice to what the papers term,
"English intrigues in order to prejudice the world against Germany's pa-
cifiu intentions."
An important foreign office official
said to the correspondent here of the
Associated PreBs: "The incomplete
and usually distorted partisan reports
of the doings of our representatives
at The Hague whioh have appeared
for weeks in the foreign, notably the
English and French press, are calculated to create  false impressions.
It was on account of this that Count
Mnii8ter proposed full reports of the
transactions from day to dav bo given
out officially. As regards England's
proposal for a permanent court uf arbi-
ration, this goes beyond the Russian
proposal. From this we miss several
seemingly essential features, such as
roles providing for absoluto impartiality As soon a guarantee of such
impartiality are given Germany will
be able to assent to propositions going
beyond the scope of the original Russian proposition. Some method will
probably be found to improve on tho
incompleteness and unfairness of the
meetings of the conference now in
vogue even if complete reports have
to ba printed in the official organ of
the German government."
The snub administered to Germany
by rejecting her ministers' proposition
at The Hague has been bitterly commented on by the press hero.
The Hague. June 17.���It is important that the present situation regarding the board of arbitration question
be clearly understood.. The work nf
the peace confereuco has beeu virtually
suspended on this point aud probably
will not be resumed for some days Un
semi-official authority it is said that
the Bituation is piuctically this:
The German   government   was   opposed in priuciple tt any organized arbitration court,   and   it is found thoso
views existed   prior to the  conference
and   instructions   to   that  effect were
given the German delegates.   Tbe conviction   affected   Berlin     that    other
powers, notably France, waB   instructing   their  delegation    similarly.   As
the  conference   proceeded   the   spirit
of conciliation advanced and the desire
to accomplish     important   permanent
results was manifested, with th:s grow
up schemes for an organized arbitration
beard,   notably the British   proposals,
to which nearly all the delegates sided
with   the   autborilive support of thoir
respective  governments.    Tbis at onco
left the German delegates in a peculiar
condition.     The  difficulty was not at
Tho Hague but at Berlin.    In order to
relieve the situation   Count. Von Minister, head   of tho   German delegation,
after a long conference yesterday with
his colleagues dooided to dispatch   Dr.
Zoin and Baron  Von   Stengel   to  inform the  Emperor   personally   of  tho
condition of affnirB.    Iu the m"iiutime
efforts had been made to find moans nf
.iimeili:uion by tho   oreation   of a limited board   established   at   Tbe Hague
under the ordinary   representatives  of
tne powers, which was proposed by Mr.
Andrew White, head of   the American
delegation.    This plan Dr.   Zoru   aud
Von Stengel, have boeu  commissioned
to   plead   to   Emperor   William.    The
question,   therefore, is  what his majesty will   reply.    The most   important
fact is that the Greman   delegation  to
Berlin were aocompnnied   by  Mr.   H.
Hollis, secretary of the American delegation, who was  able to explain fully
the American plan.    In   the meantime
the delegates  of the great powers here
bave been   merely   making time.    The
delegates of Russia, Grent Britaii   and
France,   bave   hold   several   mentimrs
concerning  which   tho   delegates preserved   silence,   probably   because  no
definite   decision   had   been   reached.
There is a growing lielief, 'hat Emperor William is  favorable  if  tho   other
powers will accept the new Dlan ns tho
basis of discussion, and will   nt once
proceed to discuss n  definite  plan   for

who are inside think tho cuuse of tbe
Uitlanders has gone up several points.
The publication of tho Transvaal
blue book with the emphatic denunciation of Transvaal methods setting
forth in measured paragraphs tbe
alleged political, financial and judicial
incompetencies of the administration
of President Kruger und adopting as
purt ot the government's own programme, all the grievances of the Uitlanders. constituted a step of the highest import. It was an unmistakeable
warning to the Transvaul us well as
indication to the people of South Africa generally, that the Goveriinmout
has arrived at a fixed decision impossible to recede from, and there are not
lacking indications that tho hint has
uot been lost at Pretoria. Although
it is dilllciilt to soperote fact from fiction in tho multiplicity of the conflicting stories it is the general impression
of those in a position to know that
tho conciliatory despatch which Dr,
Leyds. the representative in Europe
of the Transvaal received Juue 14, rep-
n sects the truo situation, while President Kruger's defiance in this matter
was merely intended for homo consumption. The opinion is now grow*
ing tbat the delay necessitated in
awaiting Sir Alfred Milner's full re-
pott of tho Bloemfontein conference
will make for a pacilic settlement.
As un ollicial in the close confidence of
the government declared it will give
President Kruger : "Time to get his
bouse in order." Bnt unless the talked of concessions should be speedily inaugurated momentous consequences
are predicted.

THE MINER AND MINERS.
' Mr. McKay, President ot the Nelson
Miuer'B Union, has onlled at this offloe
to   deny  a   statement   in  yesterdny's
Miner,   to   the effect   that   men   who
were   being   taken to  the   Athabasca
mine had boen stopped  by a picket  of
Unionists.    He   says the story is absolutely without foundation.    The Miner
is only too happy to publish this  contradiction.    It has no  desire   to   give
currency to a  Hue, or  a word,   either
for or against the miners or   the  mine
owners, that is  not   Btrietly  true.    It
has no animosity to the miners; no par
tiality for tho mine owners.    Its whole
desire is to   support   what it  believeB
to be right   between   the  two, and to
help   as well as it oan   to  promote an
early   settlement  of the   present   unhappy    differences.   It    believes  the
miners were precipitate in   proceeding
to extremities   at   this time.    Of  the
eight-hour law itself it has nothing to
say;  very  probably   it  would   be   a
just concession to   the demand of  the
men if that demand  had   been   made.
What The Miner  condemns as   wrong
was the manner of passing it.    It was
sprung upon the mine owners, who are
the persons  most  affected by  it   and
who, by reason of  the disturbance   it
has oreated, were the   first   to be considered.   Whether  the men   who had
their day cut down  one-fifth  without
an  hour's    notice  to   the  employers
might not well have afforded to consider
the full import of tbe ohange to those
wh in capital was at stake,   appeals to
The Miner   as so   reasonable and  just
under the circumstances tbat it cannot
but think they wero   ill-advised not to
do so. Instead of consenting to review
the altered   oonditions,   an   agitation
was at once begun to compel  tbe mine
owners to pay the same wage for eight-
hours that for years they  had accepted
without a murmur for ten.    No  effort
was made   at  consultation, no   opportunity afforded for  compromise,   until
tbe   dispute  had   got   almost  beyond
either. The Miner has not been able to
persuade itselt that this waB fair to the
owners.
We are further informed hy Mr.
McKay that thr Union has offered to
guarantee the owners as large a production in eight hours as tbey formerly had in ten. This is important,
and if it bad come at the outset, and in
place of the demand for the old wage
in any event, it is probable there would
have been no interruption to work.
It may be that it presents a way to
oompromise even yet. The Miner
would rejoice at a settlement on that
or any other basis the two sides could
acoept  as just.
been to tbe  oredit  of Canadian Cabinets of all sorts   that we do not know.
If  there   have   been   differences   and
unseemly    Bquabbles,   Ministers  have
had the good   taste   to   oonoeal   them
from   the   public.    And not only  the
good taste, but   regard   for  their own
dignity and  respect   for   their oath of
office.    Mr.    Martin   is   indifferentjto
these,   for   there   can be   uo doubt  it
was   with  his  oonsont   if not at   his
snggestion that this delegate's story of
the row  was prepared   for publication
in   his   organ,   Tho   Province.    It  is
made to tell against   Mr.   Cotton  and
in favor of Mr. Martin.    Tho object is
not far to seek.    If  a   rupture   is  not
imminent,   it   is   at least among  tbe
possibilities.   Ministers themselves are
calculating upon   it,   and  oveuts  are
shaping towards it.    A rupture moans
a  dissolution,   and   with   dissolution
would como  n   struggle betweon   Mr.
Cotton and Mr. Martin   for   the  mastery in Vancouver.   They are both representatives for that city. If Mr. Martin oould beat   Mr.   Cotton, the  latter
would have   to   drop   out, or, at   any
rate, bis power would be very seriously
diminished.    If Mr. Cotton could bent
Mr. Martin, this stormy petrol of Canadian politics would have to move on to
the Yukon, or to some other remote region that held out  hope   of temporary
rest.   There wonld be a fierce battle for
supremacy, and   already   the combatants are preparing for it.
Mr. Cotton is editor and publisher of
The   Vancouver   News-Advertiser,     a
very   respectable   newspaper,   by   the
way.   It had a leader the other lay on
tne endorsement   of  two  Government
projects or undertakings by the   Vancouver Board  of  Trade.   The dosing
paragraph    reads:     "In     promoting
both these efforts, equally approved by
the Board  of  Trade,  Mr. Cotton  had
taken a leading  part,   and  whilst  he
thus acts on behalf of our    local   community and the Province   in   general,
we doubt   not   that he  will  continue
to retain not only the confidence of his
Oity   constituents,   but also that of  a
majority   of   the people of British Columbia. "   It   is   not   difficult to read
between the lines   here.    It   is one  of
Mr. Cotton's   preliminaries  to the expected   duel.    And   there  is absolute

ABSOLUTE HARMONY.
Mr. Martin was not as gracious as
he might have been, or even as grao-
ions as a Minister is expected to be,
���when undergoing the briel interview
with The Miner representative which
was published a few days ago. But
some expressions of opinion were obtained from him, and some alleged
statements ol fact. Of the latter was
one to the effeot that it was "untrue to
suggest there was any difference of
opinion between him and the Government." with renpeot to the Deadmnn's
iBland affair. Absolute harmony,
bo declared, exists on that matter ns
well as on all others. When Mr. Martin gave this out for publication he
was fresh from a Cabinet meeting held
at Vanoonver, at which the troubles
whioh have arisen over Deadman '��� Island were disonssed. At that meeting
Mr. Martin and Mr. Cotton quarrelled
like cat and dog. Thin is no mere
hearsay. There was a Vancouver delegation waited upon the Government
on that occasion, and as reports of the
rupture between Ministers got into circulation some members of the rtelega-
tion gave to The Provinoe newspaper a
full statement of what transpired. The
statement is published on their im-
thority.and its correctness vouched for.
It may therefore be acoepted as true.
Mr. Cotton had regard enough for the
propriety of things to implore Mr.
Martin not to talk as he did before
the members of the delegation; bnt
Mr. Martin replied that he would, as
he wanted to put himself right. And
he did. talking very plainly on the
subjects in dispute and contradioting
Mr. Cotton at every turn. Yet to The
Miner representative he said there
were no differences between members
of the Government, and that absolute
harmony existed.
Tho altercation itself may bo a common enough thing at Cabinet meetings. It may be a reoognised oustom
among Ministers to give the lie to one
another.   We do not know, and It has
The June number ot the Kootenay

The situation up north is not qnite
clear. The newspapers say most of
the mines are being worked as usual,
Union wages being paid ; but we observe that the Secretary of the Sandon
Union advertises that miners are idle
and mines shut down, and warning
workmen to keep away from Kootenay
until the  present   troubles are settled.
A GIVE-AND-TAKE AMENDMENT.
Berlin, June 17.���Baron Heyl Zn
Hernsbeim, National Liberal, has given notice of his intention to introduce
the following amendment to the Anglo-German commercial treaty bill:
"The most favored national treatment
shall only apply to those parts of the
British empire where to the subjects
and products of Germany the samo advantages are granted as to the subjects
ond products of the most favored nation. "
If you see it in The Miner's Special
Kootenay Number it will be true.
TO SAVE THE LAKES.
London, June 17.���The watch ward
has gone out that neither Tammany
nor Howard Gould will have the Lakes
of Killcamey. Tho Duke of Westminster anfl others of the National
Trust Society actively took the matter
np at a meeting last Thursday. It is
expected the Duke will anuounoe a
plan for saving tho lakes of the nation.

some light provuder, then return home
to cold supper wilh a plentiful supply of
the kindly fruits of the earth in the
shape of snoou'.ent salad.
What is a salad gude wife?
As far as I am able to judge, from
bitter and painful exnerieneo, it conveys a different meaning to different
households.
Mrs. Jones is economical and conceives that a salad resembles the food
of tbe late king Nebuchadnezzar when
be was turned out to grass, and prepares it accordingly.
Mrs. Brown rakes in "paying
guests" and endeavors to diminish the
population of this globe by feeding
the said guests on a melange of unwashed lettloe, giant stringy radishes,
and a pungent onion, swimming in
equal parts of vinegar and oil plus a
largo proportion of dirty water in
which the said ingredients have been
Honking for hours���said ingreadients
being chopped up small with a steel
knife.
Mrs. Robinson���but why subject the
already overstrained digestive organs
to tho tortures of the damned in recalling these abominations.
It must be admitted that in the matter
of concocting salads the French show a
vast superiority over the English.
Thero is a story (a "chestnut" I foar)
of the immortal Francntelli who was
at one time tbo chef at the Reform
Olub in London. Reing questioned
bow he inauaged to instill such a delicious in king flavor into bis salads
he replied : 'Ah! That is my secret,
but I will tell him to you. After ]
have made all my preparation, and the
green food is mixed with the dressing,
I chow 11 little clove of garlic between
my teeth���so���and tbeu breathe gently
over the whole. "
Lot me transport yon for once to my
rescunrant par excellence iu gay Paris.
one known as Lo Doyen in the Champs
Elysees. Picture to yourself a street
as \,ideas tho "race course" portion of
Raker street; on euch side groves ol
fragrant, shady chestnut trees, and,under tho chestnut trees, a small, green,
roofed building surrounded by a garden filled with little damask docker!
tablos. Iu tho distance the graceful
fountains of the Place de lTitoile can
bo seen ; through ihe leaves the constant stream of carriages nassiug and
repassing; the golden dome of tbe
Invalides, where the body of the great
Napoleon swings on in space awaiting
the dismemberment of all Empires
rising above the trees beyond the
river. The tong of myriads of bees
seeking the htney giving blossoms of
the chestnut trees almost drowns the
noise of the traffic. Rut we bave
come to eat and not to dream. The
salad aloue wo will dwell on. It is a
veritable poem ; pale yellow crinkly
lettuce, the hearts only, a small percentage of endive and grass-like
soring onions aro carefully washed,
dried by being whisked violently
round in a wire basket; (a clean cloth
will do as well) are the simple ingredients. No Froinhmun ffho values bis
life would dare to toujh a lettuce
with a steel knife. And every woman
in Nelson, who desires a reputation for
honesty should lake heed of this.
Then the waiter, ever discreet, enquires if Monsieur or Madame (if you
havo the luck to be in fair company���
not a difficult ma'tor in the gay city���)
prefers a "ohapon"? A "chapon"
does not mean what Ihe careful student, of the French language would
take it to mean, but a dry crust of
bread oil which a clove of garlio has
been well rubbed.
Take my advice aud say, "Yes"
both for Madame and yourself. It
does not matter in the least if your
intimacy should ripen during tho remainder of the day for you will both
bo "tarred with tbo same brush."
Moreovor it may incline you to le
faithful���until the unmistakable
effect of the "chapon" wears off.
Tho "chapon" being laid on the
top of the salad bowl the waiter takes
a lurge tablo spoon, places in it,in sue-
oesHion, a spot of mixed mustard and a
sprinkling of black pepper and salt;
he thon fills it up with taragon vinegar, aud with a fork mixes tbe contents well together finally emptying
them ovor the "chapon" so as to pur-
collate over the green stuff. Then the
spoon is refilled tbrico with olive oil,
which is also poured over tlio salad.
The "chapon" is then removed and
the final mixing takos place.
Taragon vinegar shonld always be
used : it is the samo prico as tho best
malt; vinegar ami is kotit, by at least
two stores in Nelson This dressing
is simplicity itsolf yet noeds an artists
touch. Lay it down as a golden rule
that no servant, white or Mongul, be
permitted to exercise their ingenuity
in ooncocting a salad.
For the salad muker, liko the poet,
is born, not made. There was a man
ot Cork, Ireland, who had us cook ono
of the daughters of Erin, sho had
beon carefnllv drilled by muster and
mistress, veritable connoiseurs in culinary concoctions both of them,and who,
when her hair was free from vine
leaves, wns fairly expert with salads.
But thero camo a day when there waB
a marriage feast at my friend's bouse,
and the many sorrows of Ireland hnd
been duly toasted by the servants,
not wisely but too well. There were
various salads on  the table; there WM
also a lurking odour that suggested a
lamp room, nnd then it was discovered that Bridget had mixed the salad
dressing with Colza oil ! Her funeral
was largely attended.
* *   #
I have drifted nway from tho lake
though I had (irmly resolved to
"swear off"  gastronomy   this  week.

more leisure is my lot then will "angling notes" return to their pristine
virility. 1 have lately hee ���. reduced
to what may best, be called "parlor
cookery."
There was a time when, more from
necessity than art, I was a member
of a "powerful drarnaHn combination"
in the provinces. The salary wns
small aud none too Biire. Cheap lodg.
ings do not hold out. an extra inducement in the way of cookery.
Suppers wore my forte and more
I ban once have I received notice to
quit the next morning for grilling
bones or kidneys on the perforated
portion of a handsome parlor coal
shovel.
The cheap but nevertheless  excellent
kidney is "above   rubies" in   value to
tbo parlor  cook.    Having   split   them
open prill your kidneys   over   u   clear
firo.    Place   a saucer over   the  kettle,
where the lid   is wont to repose.    Put
iu it lump of butter  tho size of a wai
nut, a toaspoonfnl of   mixed  mustard,
a   piece   of   salt, a   tablespoonfiil   of
taragon vinegar, a teaspoonfnl of Worcester   sauce,   some fine chopped   par
sloy and   one   chopped   spring   onion
Stir well till quite hot thou pour   over
the  kidneys   directly   they are  taken
off tho fire.
This same, by the way, has been
vulgarly christened "Buster sauce"
T don't know why. Here is a supper
dish for tbo my dollarless "baching"
fellow so borers.
Cut a large Spanish onion in half.
Take out the heart, and substitute a
sheep's kidney, cut into four. Season with salt and pepper and a dash
of Worcester snuce, join the two halves
and enclose in a paste ("flap-jack"
dough will do). Bake on a greasy tin
in a moderate oven for about   an hour.

"S-sh-sh, my child I" replied the
orthodox and horrified mother, "you

and dissatisfied intant terrible, and,
after a pause, "then I thuppose he

with a very sn all fly. This sounds
like a fish story but, fortunately for
the captors' orodit, the capture was
witnessed by one who, beiog neither
angler or mining expert, may legally
be presumed to be able to speak tbe
truth.
The steamer Slocan will be laid up
for repairs today. This is a simple
announcement; but it signifies a good
deal. Slocun City intended to have a
great sport day on the 4th of July,

PRISONER WHITE LEAVES TOWN
Another Very   Successful Performance
Given Yesterday.
At the matinee performance yesterday afternoon at tbe Opera House all
the pieces were repeated that had been
givon on tbe proceeding Wednesday,
with the exception of the lauoe con
test. This was left out owing to the
absence of flour for tbe daubing. An
extra number was added iu a boxing
exhibition between the two sons of
Mr. T. Gallon, Vivian and Tom.
The performance went otf very,
smcotbly, iu many ways better than
the first performance. Louis Johustone
sang, "Soldiers of the Queen" aud
in response to au encore sang the last
two verses over again. A fair nam
bor wero presant. principally children
who en-toyed the   performance hugely.
The prisoner, White, who was in
goal here on the charge of stealing
money and jewelry from Mrs. Tennant at Sacramento and who was arrested on that charge at Kuskonook

Stiff Breeze Interfered With the Shooting Yesterday Afternoon.
The Nelson Gun Club met for their
weekly practice yesterday afternoon.
Tbe afternoon was decidedly hot,
but a stiff breeze somewhat tempered
it. The wind was rather unsteady,
falling off occasionally and then
strengthening again to a rate that
seriously interfered with the shooting.
Some fair scores were made, but the
changeable wind prevented any extra
ones.
The following were tbe scores made:
G. Steele, 17; C. D. Blackwood, 1(1;
Dr. Hall, 13, J, Williams, 11: Clarence Goepel, 10; H. E. Macdonald,   9.
Tho other shooters had rather poor
luck, owing to tho wind.

Wallace, Idaho, June 17.���The scope
of the permit system will probably be
widened by making it apply to all employes around the mines of the camp.
Up to the present time only men
working under ground have been obliged to take out cards, but tbe martial
authorities will, in all prubabiiiy,
make it necessary for suiface laborers,
engineers and tbe like also to seoure
permits and to renounce the union in
oase they are now members.
Tho shift bosses and foremen of
some of the Canyon oreek properties
who are in sympathy with the unions, are quoted as declaring thai, they
will not apply for cards in order to
remain in employment.
At the Standard the machinery and
the inside of the shaft are being white
washed, as if in preparation for a
long continued shutdown.
At the Helena-Frisco, which is be
ing operated under tbe management
of Joe MoDonald, 30 men with two
drills were employed yesterday, and it
is expected that 15 more will go under cround today. The Empire State
at Wardner, is working almost a full
force of non-union men, as many permit men have come in during the
past weeks. A few more machine
men could be employed, but there are
plenty of laborers.���Spokesman-Review.

Denver, June 17.���The outlook is fa
vorable tonight for an early resumption
of work at the trust smelters which
have been shut down Binoe Wednesday
bringing enforoed idleness to thousands
of miners and railroad employes and
threatening incalculable damage to
the state's industries. Steps have been
taken that will lead to a conference
between James Grant, chairman of
the operating committee of the American Smelting So Refining Oompany,
and a committee appointed by the
Smelter Men, 's Union. The employes,
it is believed, will insist tbat only
eight hour   shifts  shall be grnated.
Mr. Grant has said tbat he will
agree to this. He has also expressed
willingness to pay the wages that are
being paid at the Argo smelter. To
adjust rates according to tbe varying
conditions at tbe different trust smelters would require considerable study,
but if the men reoede from tbeir demand for 10 to 12 hour's pay for
eight hours' work there will be nothing in the way of a speedy and satisfactory settlement of tbe trouble. Nothing has yet developed to justify a prosecution under the new eight hour law
as all the men are out of the Grand and
Globe smelters and the law is in foroe
at the Argo.
Over 600 miners employed at the
Colorado Fuel & Iron Company's noal
mines in the Trinidad distriot have
struok for 10 hours' pay for eight
hours' work. The railroads have begun laying off train orews on account
of tbe falling off in ore shipments.

Rossland, June 17.--D. J. Macdonald, late superintendent of the Columbia and Kootenay returned yesterday
from a month's trip in the Boundary
Creek and Okanogan, countries. In
speaking of his trip yesterday, Mr.
Mandolin Id said: "I first examined
the Jewel mine, wbioh is located eight
miles from Greenwood, and advised
the management as to the reduction
plant which would be required for its
ores. It is a free milling ore, and
promises to be a fine property. I advised tho erection of a cyanide induction
plant as the one best suited for working tho ores:
"Next I inspected the Oro Denore,
whero they are putting in a hoisting
plant on their new shaft. The shaft'is
down for a distnce of 130 feet. Tbe
ledge is HO feet in width and oairies
some high grade oro. This is a promising property. A majority of the
shares aro owned by Ross Thompson,
Smith Curtis aud others of this oity.
Tho hoist will be ready in about two
-weeks, and then the work will prooeed
on an extensive soale.
"I went from there to the .properties
of the Okanagon Free Gold Mines, in
