Nelson,   British Columbia, Sunday, June 2, 1901
Eleventh  Year
Provincial Li.r,r
Resolutlun   nUU	
Baseball to Be Over-
V ��3]
Trail and Nelson to Contest
This Afternoon cn City
The Sunday ball games will be continued In spito of the action of the
Nelson city council to the contrary.
There is said to he no law iu the land
but what a team of horses and rig can
be driven through it, and through the
No-Sunday-Hall-Game resolution passed at the city council meeting some
time ago Harry Houston, the in. e-
fatigahle secretary of the Nelson bas<-
ball club, expects to drive tho Trail
and Nelson baseball teams, bats and
all, today.
The following announcement from
the Rossland Miner of Friday last was
the Hist intimation of this arrange
ment, which was received at the Miner
"Trail vs. Nelson.���The Trail baseball nine will go to Nelson on Sunday
to play the Nelson nine. The C. P.
R. will run a special train for the
day, leaving Trail at s o'clock a. m.,
at a single fare for the round trip.
The Nelson baseball enthusiasts have
got around the council's resolution for
bidding Sunday   ball games."
The Irrepressible reporter ever hungry for mat. lial for a story jumped at
this excellent opportunity to kill two
birds with one stone, viz., to advertise the match for the parties interested in Sunday games and also to furnish Sunday reading of a local mixture to those not attending Sunday
ball games,
The first person to be interviewed
on the matter was Aldennan Irving
who replied that the item contained
in the Rossland Miner was the first
intimation that he had of tbe arrangement and stated that he was no
party to the arrangemant. Ilo could
not explain by what process of c.r-
cumlocuton they had been able to get
around the decsion of the council, and
gave It to be distinctly to be undtr-
stood that any encouragement the
baseball club might have received
from any member of the council was
given without bis knowledge and consent, and further intimated his intention of adhering to tbo stand he had
previously taken on the question when
it came np before the council meeting
some time ago.
The copy of the Rossland Miner
was shown to Mayor Fletcher who
stated that he knew no more about it
than was contained in the repoit.
He stated, however, that he had
been approached on thc matter by a
member of the club, who was given to
understand that he had nothing to do
with it. Asked as tc the attitude of
the council in regard to the apparent
attempt to defy their authority le
stated that they had no power to prohibit Sunday ball games any more
than they had power to prevent the
reporter from eating too much dinner
on Sunday or any other day. When
asked as to whether the action of the
baseball club was not au attempt to
over ride thc decisionof the city council he stated that their resolution wns
nothing more than an expression of
opinion which might or might not
represent the sentiment of thc citizens
nf Nelson, but it had no legislative
force, and the only way they had of
prohibiting these things was for
somebody to prefer a charge against
the players and for the council to
submit it to the people as an anti-
Sunday sports by law. Aldennan Gillett, when shown the announcement
stated that It was the first intimation
he had received that anything of the
kind was contemplated, and wondered
what encouragement they had received in suoh a barefaced attempt to defy
the action of the council, and expressed h's determination to maintain the
action he had previously adopted.
Alderman Hamilton in discussing
the matter said chat he was aware
that there was a'special train chartered from Trail for the baseball boys
but knew of no action taken by the
eity fathers which would justify them
in Ignoring the decision of the couneil  in   tbeir  stand against   Sunday
sports   and although   it   was evident
that they hud received encouragement
from some source   he was   ignorant ol
j the manner in which they   had   man-
��� aged to evade the action of the   coun-
lil.but intimated his intention of hav-
ig the matter looked into,which will
1, all probability  be   investigated   at
,'the next meeiing of the city   council.
Alderman Maild.n was also enquired
of in regard to the   matter  and stated
that the intimation made in tbe Roosj
land Miner   was   his   first   and   only
knowledge of the matter and   had  so
opinion   to offer on the subject as   he
did not   wish   to be mixed up in   the
thing in any way at all.
Today therefore, the two baseball
teams will meet in solemn combat,and
as the editor of the New Denver
Ledge would ado, the police will be
informed of the matter on Monday.
Committed Suicide cn a Railway Train  Near St.
Agreement Reached   as   to  Passenger
Rate, on Pacific Coast.
Vietotia, B. C, June 1.���Rates to
Skagway have been restored to the
figure obtaining before the rate war
began. Hereafter only Pacific Coast
Steamship Co. steamers will call here.
The new rates will take effect on
the Islander which left here last night
for Vancouver,   en route to Skagway.
Passengers here paid the cut rate of
Sin. but Vancouver passengers have to
pay 825, second class tickets to be ttlii
as before. Those terms were reached
at a meeting of the companies yesterday. The agreement provides that the
Victorian and City of Seattle, of Dod-
well's line leave out Canadian ports.
The Pacific Coast line is, however,
allowed to remain in business. Ihe
outoome is regarded as a victory
for the latter company ut whose initiative the rate war was inaugurated.
All the smaller companies are anxious
to reach a settlement as the bulk of
the Klondike trade will be doi.o in
June. At the reoent ruinous rates

Amalgamated      Team    Defeats
Washington  University.
Victoria. June 1,���The united Victoria ball teams scored a distinct triumph this afternoon when they defeated the team from the University of
Washington. Profiting by defeat at
the hands of Vancouver, the Amities
and Victorias amalgamated and the
result was a strong team which vanquished the Washington boys today.
Holness was again pitcher but
Schwangers took the place of Barns-
ley behind the bat. At the end of
the ninth innings the score stood 3 to
3. But this was improved on In the
Kith innings by Victoria adding one
more while Washington failed to
score. The final result therefore was
4-3 in favor of Victoiia. An immense
crowd witnessed the match.

addressed an open air meeting at
Springbank this afternoon. Heavy

declaring it went in for quantity
rather than quality.

Nova Scotlan Laborers and Mechanics
Stop Work.
Sydney, Cape Breton, June 1.���Two
hundred and fifty members of the labor nmons, including masons, bricklayers, stone cutters, plasterers and
painters are on strike demanding a
nine hour day system. Contract work
is stopped. The Dominion Iron and
Steel Company is seriously affected,
but when the men quit work, the
officials of tbe company informed the
strikers that their services were no
longer required, and state that they
will be able to replace all strikers
with non union men. The workmen,
however, are thoroughly organized
and determined to fight the matter

Only Poor Students Expected to Apply
For Grants.
London, June 1.���Modifications of
Mr. Carnegie's educational proposal
for Scotland are, according to the
Daily Chronicle, still undor discussion
at the Scottish universities.
"Mr. Carnegie has practically placed himself in the hands of Lord Balfour of Burleigh and the amended
scheme," says the Chronicle, "does
credit to everyone concerned The
new trust will be of a depository
character and will extend to all high
grade schools and educational Institutes. Only poor students will be
expected to apply for grants, and the
latter will have eleemosynary character and a substantial balance will
be left for the bettor equipment of universities, the extension of college
buildings and the like."
Spokane, June 1.���Despite heavy
burdens, the silver lead mines of Hritish Columbia still hold rank as the
richest properties in the province.
Thus far this year they have managed
to pay two-thirds of the dividends
from all the mines in Kootenay.
There has never been a timo when
the lead mining industry of the province has suffered under a more onerous load. It bas been almost impossible to get a buyer for galena ores.
The policy of the American Smelting
A Refining company, <vhich controls
the situation here, is to keep British
Columbia lead out of the American
market. Accordingly the huge trust
has refused to Handle the lead ores
from the Ciinau'ian'niinoe.
America is normally the market for
British Columbia lead. The tariff
laws tender it almost obligatory for
the ore to be smelted on this side 0}
the line. There is a duty of only a
cent and a half a pound on lead in
crude ores, but there Is a tariff of 2%
cents a pom d on lead bullion. That
means a difference of 62J_ cents per
hundred pounds in favor of lead which
is smelted in the United States. The
margin is wide enough to mean profit or loss to the Canadian mine-
owner. .
Since they are now unable to sell
their ores to the smelting corporation,
la.e British Columbia operators have
been forced to seek a market on the
basis of London quotations. The ruling price there now is about 92.12.
When freight rates are considered,
that means a price of abont 81.70 per
hundred for lead in Kootenay.
The Trail smelter has done much
work In handling a part of the lead
production of the province. By the
logic of facts, however, it is not able
to pay more than SI.70 for its lead.
Some of the properties, like the St.
Eugene at Moyie, have been compelled
to'ship their oie all tbe way to Belgium in order to get a market. Even
under such circumstances, however, the
British Columbia lead producer has
been able to get only about 40 per cent
ot the price for lead which is received
by his more fortunate brother on the
American side. It is plain, therefore, that conditions now are most
harassing to the lead miners of Kootenay. It is a marvelous evidence of the
richness of these mines that five of
them bave been able to pay dividends
slnoe . the first of the year. Tbey
have managed in that time to disburse $308,500 in profits to their share
The action o* the Canadian government in giving a bonus for a lead refinery in Canada will go far to relieve
the present situation. It is expected
that tbe Canadian Pacific railway will
erect a lead refineiy in connection
with its lead smelter at Trail.
The benefit of the refinery would
be instant. It wonld give a Canadian
outlet for Canadian lead, and would
save the freights which are now lost
In sending thc lead abroad to be treat
ed and refined. This saving in the
cost of producing refined lead would
be shared by the mine owners. They
would receive a subtantially higher
price for their ore. Instead of being
dependent upon America for an outlet,
they would have a domestic market
to be supplied.
There are fairer days ahead for the
lead miners of British Columbia. It
Ib not reasonable to believe that the
present disastrous conditions can continue for long. Such lavish wealth as
nature has placed ln the silver-lead
mines of the province will be secured.
In securing it, prosperity will shine

Funds Coming in Easily For Nelson's
The man who reported the list of
subscriptions for Dominion Day sports
in The Miner has not yet learned to
count dollars beyond the quarter of a
hundred, hence the mistake which oc-
cuired in the statement which was
made in regard to the amount sub
scribed by the Nelson Electric Tramway Co., where it was reported that
they bad only subsciibed 825 when the
amount should have been stated us
850. In addition to the amounts ii -
ported yesterday the following add!
tional amounts have been  subscribed:
Hall Mines Smelting Co 825 00

where they will undertake the manufacture of monumental stone work.
They have succeeded in obtaining
some line samples of granite from

A Chinese  Cook  Shot and
Killed by His Employer,
Murderer   Escapes   to   the
to Be Insane.
Fort Steele, June 1.���On Wednesday
morning at daybreak, at his ranch on
the Upper Columbia Lake, Frank J.
Lascelles, sl.ot and instantly killed a
Chinaman that was working for him,
says the Fort Steele Prospector. The
murderer lias escaped into the mountains. It .'appears that on going to
bed he felt depressed and nervous and
not being able to sleep asked al.
Lambert, who was putting up a new
house for him, and sleeping in ihe
same house, to keep his lamp alight.
After sleeping some time, Lambert
was awakened by hearing Lascelles
apparently engaged In conversation
with some one outside of the window.
Lambert listened for a short time
and then becoming suspicious thnt
all was not right went outside closing
the door behind him. Hearing the
door sliut Lascelles quickly asked wbo
had gone out saying, "Is that you
Lambert?   If you don't answer before
count five I'll shoot." Meanwhile
the Chinaman cook woke up and
opening tho door received the entire
charge of shot in his neck, dying immediately. Lascelles then put on his
coat,filling his pockets with cartridges
went out. This ejeurred at daybreak
and up to the present time he has not
been located, he is in pajamas, and
has no shoes on. It is supposed that
l.iiM'.llvs suddenly became Insane, as
there is ns other reason assigned for
committing the act.
Lascelles has been a resident of
North East Kootenay since 1892. He
is a well to do man. of very peculiar
disposition and habits. He is a native of England. The police of Windermere are searching for Lascelles.
A Man Sentenced in Nelson Thinks He
is Wrongfully Imprisoned.
At. the assizes in Nelson last fall
W. R. Hocking was found guilty of
bigamy and sentenced to a term of
years in the penitentiary. The case
came from Cranbrook and the prisoner made a strenuous defence,
Tbe following dispatch from Vancouver tells of the latest developmental
in the case: Colonel L. Edwin
Dudley, United States consul at this
port, has taken up the case ot W. R.
Hocking, an American citizen serving
a sentence in the New Westminster
prison on a charge of bigamy. It
is alleged Hocking's imprisonment is
unjust, certain new evidence having
been developed since he was placed in
jail three months ago. Hocking's
story is that while living In Austin,
Nev., he became crippled through an
accident and subsequonlty his wife
sued for a divorce on the ground of
Believing the divorce to havo been
granted Hocking married aagin ami
was prosecuted for bigamy, his conviction being obtained on the showing that when he mariied tho second
time the decree had not been granted.
Hocking no" claims to have evidence
showing that the granting of the divorce decree antedated his second marriage.
The case has been drawn to tho attention oi the Canadian autho'ities.

It can be said of the Royal Com-
miHsion on Chinese immigration that
it is exceedingly painstaking in its
investigation, a.nd that it gives one
the impression that it is honestly
seeking the exact truth in re6peet to
the inlluence of Mongolian labor on
the economic conditions in this Province. It is taking a vast amount of
evidence, and ascertaining as well as
it can the best opinions on all phases
of the question. One of the Commissioners, it is true, makes no effort to
conceal his prejudice against the
Orientals; but while this antipathy
may impair, his usefulness, he is not
less zealous in the attempt to get at
the facts than his more judicial colleagues.
Perhaps it is because opinion is
unanimous, or nearly so, iu Nelson,
but it was obseived that with one
exception the witnesses called here
were bitterly oppused to the employment of Chinese labor. They would
exclude them entirely; some would
have those already here kicked out,
and precautions taken that neither
they nor their kind should ever be allowed to show a nose in British Columbia again. On this question we
greatly fear that prejudice has run
away with reason. It is doubtful if
there is a man or woman in Nelson
who is injured by the presence of the
few Chinese who are here, and it
would be absurd to claim that no one
iH benefitted. We may dislike them,
but it is not true to say that under
existing conditions we could do without them, excepting at great inconvenience. Yet witnesses shut then-
eyes to everything but their own
unreasoning antagonism, and jump at
once to the end of it all, which is
that the Chinese must go. An intelligent, broad, comprehensive view of
the question appears to be impossible
to the majority, and It requires a
good deal of courage iu the case of tbe
exception to oppose the popular prejudice.
No one wants Chinese as full-fledged citizens. They are not adapted for
citizenship, have no desire in that direction, and would be incapable of
the duties and responsibilities if they
had. Whether in large or small numbers, their naturalisation has never
been regarded as possible. It is simply out o' the question, and to investigate or discuss in regard to that
phase of it is a waste of time, The
worst they can do is to come in such
shoals that white labor will be entirely disorganized; they can never
threaten the supremacy of our race,
for they can never be admitted lo citizenship, but they can starve out
white labor if we permit them to
come in surllciont numbers. Are they
already in such numbers? That is
the question whicli the Commission
has to answer. In some localities and
some industries it may be that they
are, but it. is nonsense to say that we
in Nelson are hurt by them.
Canada has more to dread from immigrants like the tlalicians than
froui the Chinese. The Chinese can
never become a part of us, and drag
us down to the level of a very doubtful admixture; the assimilation of the
Gallciana is advanced as the only defence for introducing them. There
will be deterioration of race as the
result of mixing with the inferior
blood of the Hlavh, which will come
in time; but there can bo no such
danger with the Chinese, whose assimilation is an impossibility. The
worst danger to apprehend from the
Chin, in- is of an industrial character,
and that can be dealt with; the danger from the inferior races of Km ope
lies much deeper, and Is impossible of
remedy when once rooted.

there is little hope of getting our
own. We have the misfortune, Tho

a uation which will never be exalted
by international righteousness. As it
was <u the Beating business so it will
be in the boundary dispute." If the
British contention fares as well is
the boundary dispute iih it did in the
sealing business we shall not be so
badly dealt with. The American sealing claims were so generally and so
peremptorily rejected by the Paris
Tribunal that our neighbors have ever
since been enduring life under a sense
of mortification. Our contemporary
Bhould cheer up. We are dealing
with a cunning, unscrupulous opponent, but the ease is not entirely hopeless by any means.

gieat name for himself. Tbe Payne
now stands at the head of tbe list of
dividend paying mines in British Columbia, and Mr. Garde will assume
his responsible position at a most interesting stage of tbe mine's history,
and all mining men here will follow
the future management of the Payne
with a keen interest. Mr. Garde has
always shown great interest in local
matters and the camp will miss bim.
Good luck to the Payne's new manager."      	
The Miner is' informed on good authority that dynamite is being used in
taking Ash in the Slocan River. This
is a practice the. authorities should
put down with all the rigor the law
allows. There are-several legitimate
methods of catching fish, but this is
not one of them. And these legitimate
methods we pursue In such numbers
and so industriously that in a few
years more the magnificent trout on
which we pride ourselves will be ex
hausted. It is not necessary that our
recklessness should be helped out by
the criminality of dynamite fishing;
the end will coino quite soon enough
without that.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's ie the only
official intimation yet ~?ade that the
Joint High Commission will resume
its sittings this summer, but it is
sufficient. The vacancy caused by
the death of Lord Horschell will, it
is said, be filled by the appointment
of Lord Rosebery. There eould not be
a better one, If his Lordship would
only tuke the trouble to rouse himself
sufficiently to take an interest iu the
matters under consideration.
"A Prime Minister," says Mr.Gold-
wln Smith, "need not have brilliancy,
but he must have weight.'' Everybody knew Mr. Dunsmuir did not pos:

and believed he had weight. But
when put into the balance with certain corporation roustabouts, his end
of the beam kicaod the ceiling in
short order.

���Lewlston Journal.
I had been spending n week in New
York with my father and was returning
lo Chicago alone, business, detaining my
parent in the east for some time longer.
"Now, Nolly," naid my father as he
saw mc to my seat nnd tendered ine n
supply of books nnd papers that would
havo lasted rno to Honolulu, "you will
got to Chicago as comfortably as If I
were going along with you."
I hnd n lower berth���No. 8���nnd to all
appearances thc berth above was to be
A parting kiss, a hurried pressure of
hands, a brief glimpse of waving hands
and handkerchiefs nnd thc train wns
soon speeding on its way westward.
I began to long for some one to talk
to nnd nhnost regretted thnt fate had
not provided me with a vis-a-vis, even
though a stranger. However, I saw a
little awakening that promised a possible break iu the monotony. In a compartment next but one to mine, on the
opposite side, I saw a gentlemnn whom
I had not noticed before lixing a tnblo
in position, as if for writing. He glanced
across at me now and again with a calm
inquisitiveness that somehow suggested
to my mind the probability of a closer
intimacy between us later.
1 was a little disconcerted at his frequent glances in my direction, for I
could not tell what they implied. To
avoid recognizing his glances I turned
to the newspaper agnin and made such
a good pretense of being absorbed in it
that I was really startled when 1 saw
him presently standing close to me, looking straight into my face over the paper.
"I beg your pardon," he said in a soft,
musical voice, with his hand toward the
seat on which I was sitting.
I grasped tlie situation at once. There
was something under the seat he wanted.
He was the man who was to occupy the
berth above me and who was entitled to
sit on the seat facing mc.
I immediately rose to my feet nnd
from under the sent he drngged forth a
small leather bag, and with a gracious
bow and "I thank you, madam," conveyed it to thc I able he had opened out nnd,
taking therefrom a buudle of papers and
writing materials, was soon busy with
them, covering page after page with a
facility that gave me the notion he must
be either a newspaper correspondent or
a novelist.
The day wore on; morning grew to
noon and noon to nlgbt, and, excepting
the slight intervals for meals, when he
would return all his papers aud writing
to his b'ag, lock it and disappear for a
brief interval, he never allowed his pen
to rest.
There was one peculiarity about him
that struck me as not a little remarkable.
He always kept his left hand gloved aud,
having not much else to tliink about,
that gloved hand grew to he an object of
considerable curiosity to me.
Why I should trouble my head so much
about a stranger passed my comprehension; but, fight against the influence as 1
might, the man with the glovo exercised
nn inexplicable fascination over me.
That he failed to return the compliment
was evident, for, although he often
glanced over at mc, he made no further
attempt to disturb my privacy.
A slight diversion occurred after passing Altoonn. A thunderstorm of exceptional violonce broke across the valley, and the Inmps hnd to be lighted. At
the next station a couple of drenched
male figures boarded the train, shook
themselves free from the hurricane of
rain in which they hnd been caught and
settled quietly down in a compartment
at thc other end of the car.
What a face was his of the gloved
hand, as it bent close to the glass and
peered out into the turmoil! He snw
roaring furnnces, scarred hills and ragged ravines, or 1 wns much mistaken,
and when at last 1 retired into the curtained gloom of my lower berth that face
wus the object thnt my brain carried
into the darkness with me.
1 could hear thc other beds being mado
ready, one after another, and at last
there was a sound of whispering voice,
near me, and I knew that the attendant
was assisting the man with the glove
into the berth above mc. Then gradually the silence of night crept through the
car, thc lights were lowered, and each
passenger wiib left aloue with his or
her own thoughts.
So completely hnd I mastered my fears
thnt I was on the point of falling off
into a peaceful Bleep when a groan In
the berth above mo���a groan of agony,
if ever I heard one���set my heart puipi-
tuting with fresh terror. My eyes Btood
wide open again. Parting my curtains,
I looked through the car, where all was
still enough, but at the far end 1 'saw,
fully dressed, the two men who bad entered the train at the station after Alteon a.
Now more alarmed than ever, 1 held
my breath with fenr. What could it all
mean? Was something dreadful portending, or were a few trilling circumstances that had no connection or significance playing nightmare tricks with
my brain?
Just then a sight dawned on my excited eyes thnt almost made me shriek.
In the interstice between the bed above
and the side of the car I could see some-'
thing, I knew not whnt, protruding. My
eyes were riveted to the object, nnd ns
the object grew and gradually drooped
lower and lower, I could see that it was
a human hand. The hand ef the man
with the glove, but now gloveless. The
second and third fingers were wrapped
round with a strip of linen, darkened by
soaking, of blood! As I looked I could
see drops ef blood collect at the flngar
tips and tall in glow mudodc., drop after
drop, upon my bed,
What was I to do? Call for tho attendant aud huve the man awakened or
let the matter take its course?
Presently another agonizing groan
from the wounded mun told me thut ho
had awakened, and, to my Intense relief, I snw thc bund hastily draw up.
My- first impulse was to throw the
clothes from tbe bed aud dress, but a
more reasonable feeling supervened, and,
scarcely knowiug whnt 1 did, I took a
newspaper and spread it across the
slums. Uut that was not Bullicient to
exorcise my feura, and I stared fixedly
at the paper that concealed the mark,
until iu the moonlight 1 found myself
reading, in a mechanical, semi.ous.ioti,
way, thu words 1 saw printed on tlie
At first tho words were meaningless,
then they began to assume form aud
coherence, and liuully I found them
burning into my bruin. In thc columu
spread out before me wns uu nccouut
of a terrible tragedy thut had taken
place lu New York the day previous to
my leaving that city. A man had murdered a woman uut ot jealousy under
circumstances of peculiar atrocity. Ill
the struggle between tbe murderer and
his victim the knife with which thc
deadly deed hud been done had been
wrested sd fiercely that tbe cuds of two
of thc murderer', lingers had been cut
off and had been picked up by tbe police. The mnu iu the berth nbove wn,
the murderer! With this maddening
thought surging through my bruin, the
wonder was that 1 did not scream. But
I kept silent, Blowly realizing the grave
responsibility of my position as 1 lay
there with a fellow creature's life at
my mercy. My duty was plain. To allow a criminal to escnpe justice was to
become an accessory to his crime. But
had I the hardihood to denounce him?
Would not the stigma of notoriety forever afterward be mine? How did 1
know that the crime might not be in a
mensure a stroke of swift justice that
man is sometimes maddened into committing under strong provocation?
The dawn was just stealing In through
the windows, and, as I put ou my wrapper and crept Btcnlthily to the dressing
room, there was not a soul to be Been
except the male attendant, leaning
against the door at his own end of tho
car, looking sleepily out. The man with
thc glove was as still as the rest of the
passengers, whether he was sleeping or
After long reasoning I came to the
conclusion that the conductor wns the
proper person to consult with. Tho conductor passed through, but 1 did not stop
him. ' My courage fulled me. Then 1
returned to my seat and found the beds
cleared away. Where was thu man?
I cast my eye apprehensively nround tho
car, but he was nowhere to bo seeu.
Thc conductor entered the car again.
I signaled him to approach and was
about to tell him what 1 had seen when
somehow my tongue refused to shape
the fatal words ot accusation, aud I
simply inquired of him what time tbe
train would reach Chicago. At that
same moment there flashed across my
mind the thought that it was within the
range of possibility that I was mistaken
in my suspicions. Cut fingers were common enough. Yes, but uot tbat look of
weird terror and hate and desperation
that I had redd in the man's face as he
had sat gazing out of tbe window the
previous night.
It wus time for me to act. The next
time the conductor passed through the
car I followed him and was about to
speak when, to my amazement, 1 saw
the man with tbe glovo sealed between
tho two men who had boarded the train
after we had left Altoona. 1 let the conductor go forward into the next car aud
turned back to go to ,my sent, gettiug
another glimpse of the man's face as 1
passed. It wore the same look of guilty
horror that I had Been upon it tbe night
before, with an additional pang of hopelessness thrown into it.
I saw the situation. The other men
were detectives, who had been telegraphed ahead to arrest the murderer, and
they hnd quietly secured him while I hud
been out ot the car wondering how to
A few weeks afterward I read the report of the man's condemnation.���Chicago News.
A .tor.   From Ileal Life.
This little story comes from real life.
"Certainly she knows that she's not
my own daughter," said the fine looking
old gentleman in answer to an inquiry.
"I told her thnt as soon as she was old
enough to understand. Thought it was
best.    Now she's going to be married.
"I've always thought that she was left
at my house by mistuke, for there wus
a rich man of the same name living up
on tbe avenue, and she would have hnd
a finer home there. But I owe everything
to the little witch, and she thinks just us
much of us as we do ot ber. When we
took her in that night off the step, we
found a string of beads about her neck,
fastened to a chain by clasps, mother
and me thinking they were glass.
"One day a lady called and said she
believed the beads were diamonds. I
laughed at the idea, but mother took
them to a jeweler, and he suid every
bead was a fine solitaire. They were
my start.
"Sell 'em? Indeed we didn't. She'll
wear 'em at her wedding and more with
'em. 1 was working then at common
labor for if 1.50 a du,v. My boss took a
liking to me aud otA>red me a chunce to
join him In a contract if 1 could find
some reudy money. Mother and mc took
the diamonds to a bunker, and he let me
have the money ou tbem.
"We made a good thing on the contract. 1 kept right on that line, doing
honest work, and now I'm what people
used to call rich. The girl has had
everything that a good girl wants, she's
happy as a lark, she bas made us all
happy, and she's going to live right In
this block after she's married."���Detroit

According to social usage, women In
Peru cannot attend funerals, nnd they do
not appear ut weddings unless they art
very intimate friends. When a funeral
procession passes through the streets, the
coffin is carried upon the shoulders of tbe
1 pallbearers, who are followed by an
empty bourse drawn by two, four or six
horses, according to the menus of the
mourners nnd their desire for display. All
the male members of the family and
friend, of the deceased follow on foot,
with a line of empty carriages behind
them. As long ns they nre in the presence

In tbe reign of Louis Philippe Victor
Hugo was a frequent and welcome guest
at the Tuilories. Here is one of his anecdotes of tho time as told la Victor Hugo's memoirs:
"A few days ago the king Bald to Marshal Soult (in the presence of others),
'Marshal, do you remember the siege of
" 'Itather, sire, I should think so. I
swore enough before that cursed Cadiz.
I invested the pluce and was forced to go
awn.  as I bad come/
" 'Marshal, while yon were before It I
was Inside it.'
" 'I know, sire.'
" 'The cortes and thc British cabinet offered rue the command of the Spanish
" 'I remember, sire.'
" 'The offer was a grave one. I hesitated long. Bear arms against France?
For m. family it is possible, but against
my country! I was greatly perplexed.
At this Juncture you asked me through a
trusty person for a secret Interview in a
little house situated on thc Cortadura,
between tbo city and your camp. Do you
remember tbe fact, Monsieur Marshal?'
" 'Perfectly, sire. The day was fixed
and the Inte.vlow arranged.'
" 'And I did not turn up?'
" 'That is so.' fmffl
" 'Do you know why .
" 'I never knew.'
" 'I will tell you. AS I was preparing
to meet you the commander of the English squadron, apprised of the matter, ��
know not how, dropped upon me brusquely and warned me tbat I was about to
fall into a trap; tbat, Cadis being impregnable, they despaired of seising me,
but that at Cortadura I would be arrested by you; that tbe emperor wished to
make the Duke d'Orleans a second volume of the Duke d'Engheln, and that you
would have hnd me shot Instantly. There,
really,' added the king with a smile, 'your
hand on your conscience, were you going
to shoot me.
"Thc marshal remained silent for 8 moment, then replied: 'No, sire. I wante.
to compromise you.' The subject of tht
conversation was changed. A few minutes Inter the marshal took leave of the
king, and the king, as he watched him go,
said with a smile to the person who had
heard the conversation: 'Compromise!
Compromise! Today it is called compromise. In reality he would have shot me.' "

Then was an auction sale la the little
house, and one after another the widow's
few possessions fell beneath the hammer.
Presently the auctioneer took up a large
bowl which happened to be full of sugar,
and the poor woman, anxious to save its
contents, hastened Into tbe next room to
find something in which to put it.
Just as she returned tbe auctioneer
cried, "Sold!" and the purchaser Insisted
that tbe sugar was his. The widow
pleaded for tbe little that was much to
her, but tbe man was obdurate, and murmurs of indignation arose from the
crowd. Angry at this demonstration, the
man turned, and hia eye rested on Mr.
"Mr. Wise,'* Said he, "you are a lawyer.
Am I right or not?   It you any I am not,
I will give back the sugur.   If you say I'
am, I am entitled to it, and I'll keep If
"My friend." replied Wise in his gentlest tone, "you put a delicate and unpleasant responsibility on me. i Hadn't
you better decide the matter for yourself?"
"No," replied the fellow curtly. "I
know what your opinion Is going to be,
and I want you to give It so that this
whole crowd can hear it."
"Then." said Wise, "I advise- you that
the sugar is yours. The Widow cannot
take It from you.   She has no redress."
"Ah!" cried the man, turning to the
spectators.   "What did I tell you?"
"Stop!" thundered Wise, whose manner
at once changed. "I've advised you at
your persistent request, as I can prove by
llieso people. It remuins for me to tell
you tbat I charge ��1 Is. for my advice,
and I demand immediate payment' If
you trifle with me ln the mutter of payment, you will most certainly regret It."
The man turned scarlet and, fumbling
tn his pocket, produced a guinea, which
tho lawyer handed to the widow, and the
crowd yelled its approval.���London Answers.

"When the pursuit of wealth tetnpti
you, my son," said the sage, "remember
the fable of tbe fox that hungered for
some wonderfully fine grapes growing ia
* garden the only entrance to which was
(-rough a hole In the wall. It was so
small that he had to fast throe days before be could crawl through it. After he
had got inside and filled himself he was
too large to crawl back through the hole,
and wa. compelled to fast another three
days before he could make bis escape
from the garden. So he went out as poor
as ho went in."
"Yes," said the ambitions young man,
"but why didn't tbe fool fox take a lot of
grapes to the hole and push them out
through it? Then he could have carried
away enough-to keep him fat tor ���
month."���Chicago Tribune.

At tha Dublin city sessions one morn*
Ing a Juror prayed to be excused, and
said he had a doctor's certificate that he
was not fit to serve. He handed up a
dosed envelope to the recorder, who
found it contained a letter from a well
known Dublin medical man. Amid great
laughter in court, the recorder read this
letter aloud:
"This man bas been asking for a certificate that be la unable to serve as a
Juror. 1 don't know whether he Is a

The reminiscences and recollections ot
W. G. Grace, the veteran English cricketer, contain one good story, a joke made
by Tom Emmctt, a famous bowler.
One Saturday afternoon Emmett wns
bowling for his club, but the fielders
dropped catch after catch with such systematic persistence that he lost his temper, threw the ball on the ground and
"I'm not going W bowl any more.

Tha Iadllan Chief Was Not So Saras*
as lie Looked.
Many years ago a number of Peoria Indiana organized a show company and
made a tour of the cast. They were
mostly half breeds, and ull were thoroughly educated in English, but it wus stipulated by the management that they must
talk only in their untive tougue, nnd
when'they got on their war togs they
looked savage enough Indeed. Among
the company wsb Will Labudlc, well
known In Galena, and one evening he
was standing ln tht corridor of nn eastern hotel, dressed in his chief's robes and
looking every inch the savage man of fiction, when he was approached by an elegantly gowned lady, and tbe following
conversation ensued:
"You big cbtcr In your own country?"
"Yon go to Washington te aee great
white father?"
"You cannot speak white man's tongue.
Yon speak no English?"
"No, madam. 1 regret to say that I do
not understand the Inngunge."
The poor woman was greatly surprised
aid ejniiuirnssed, but perhaps not so
much as a bevy of girls on a later occasion. Iu almost every town some of the
audience would remain behind to get a
better view of tho awful savages. One
night Labadle bad taken his seut iu the
orchestra box after the show, and four or
live youug ladles who were standing near
commenced to comment on his personal
appearance. "How would you like to kiss
him?" said one of the maidens with a titter. "Oh, girls, let's all do it just to see
how it would feel to kiss a real Indian!"
exclaimed one more daring than the rest,
whereupon Labadle turned calmly to
them and said:
"Ladles, nothing would afford me more
pleasure than to give you a practical illustration of the oscillatory accomplishments of the red man,"
There was a chorus of little screams, a
swish of skirts, and the taeater was empty.���Galena Republican.

It occurred on a Third avenue "L"
train. The cur was well filled with men
und women on tbeir wuy down town,
when a policeman got on at the Ono
Hundred and Twenty-fifth street station.
Ht curried a baby in his arms. The olllcer took a seat opposite a theater party.
"Oh, Isn't that a pretty baby? Have
you arrested him?" exclaimed one of the
young women.  The policeman blushed.
"No, ma'am," he said. "You sec, he's
a foundling���picked up by a girl in a
hallway, miai."
"Shame," said one of the men.
"He has silk ribbona in bis hood," his
companion observed.
"And a silk slip. Oh! who could be so
cruel'.' exclaimed a younger girl.
"Where's he going?" some one asked,
and the policeman answered:
"To Bctlevue. Then to Randall's island if he ain't claimed right away.
They'll give bim a name, you know."
Here tbe baby began to cry, softly nt
first, increasing it to a wail thnt would
net bt silenced. In vain the young women tried to quiet the child. The policeman shifted bim uneasily from one shoulder to the other.
In the corner of the car sat a woman
with a small child. She was poorly clad,
but in her face was the kindliness of
motherhood. She came forwsrd.
. "I think the child is hungry," she said.
"Give him te me."
Resting her own child ln her lap, the
mother, held the little foundling In her
arms and drew about bim a faded shawl.
The cries ceased, and a silence fell npon
the theater party. When they left the
train at Port.-second atreet, the baby
was still quiet.
''He's asleep now, I think," the laborer's wife told tbem. One man slipped a
roll of bills into the policeman's hand.
"For her," they said, nodding to the
woman in the corner. "To Hellenic, eh?
Too bad."���New York Journal.

'   ��� The annua)   meeting   of the   Piiync
-Consolidated   Mining   company    was
-.,  held   on   Thursday     afternoon,    May
23rd, in the orllccs   of   thu   company.
Composed almost entirely of  Montreal
capitalists, this company   own.   largo
, and   valuable     mining   properties   iu
British   Columbia.    The    chair    was
occupied      by   tlie   president.  Lieut.-
Col. _\ 0. Henshaw, who rend his annual report   as   well   as   that of  the
luaiiagur nt the coinpary, Mr. /.nicliy.
After   descrlbiiny   the   progress   and
development of the   company's   property and the   necessity  of   Installing
H compressor and   concentrator, there
port htated that there was every prospect of finding a large body   of   vain-
..iil���able ore in the deeper working of   the
mine.    The   report   of    the   engineer
pointed   out that II. was necessary   to
.install some hind of power   to operate
V-'ow the No. a level, witli out, delay.
It also   stateil   that   with   a   suitable
plant, it would bo   possible   to reduce
���, the cost of operation by from   IS to ..(I
'percent.  Commenting   on t'uu   report
��� of the   manager,   tlie president   mai'e
an i'licouiagiiig   speech, in   which   he
said   that   the   directors   bad ut   all
..times   carried   on   the  affairs of   the
company in thc interest of the   eliare-
holders.     The        financial      Statement
, showed the company had a balance ou
, hand of  SIHI.SUT.    The   reports   were
^Unanimously adopted.   An interesting
���,....jjeport was then   made by Mr.   F.   II.
Jlathis. ono of   the   directors   of   the
ooinnany, and a mining  engineer who
recently visited   the   company's property in   Hritish   Columbia.    Ho   gave
the result of a minute examination of
the    property,   and   suggested   many
i  improvements in   tho   working of the
mine,    and   the   installation   of   new
.,.., machinery.-
.. The   following   board    of   directors
was then   elected:    Lieut.-Col,   Henshaw, Hon. Ij. .1. Forget,   Wm.    Han-
nSon, V. It. Matins, W. (i.  Ross, A. \V.
.ijtjjMuCiine, F. E.Sargent, Budolphe For-
;i~.i,get and Chas. E.  L.    I'orteous.    At   a
ihibsequeut   mealing of   the   directors
Lieut.-Col.    Henshaw   was   re-elected
president and Hon. L. .1. Forget, vice;
president.���Montreal Star.
All the force   working   on   ore   at
the Last Chance was   laid off on Wednesday.    Thc   stopes   are too   wet   to
carry on mining   and   no   ore will be
taken out   until the seepage subsides.
Work on the Ualcna tunnel   will be
continued with   a   force of   15   men.
. This tunnel is now in    1,800   feet und
:.lt is calculated to tap the Galena vein
" .lit 18(10 feet, giving a depth of 900 feet
o i the   vein.    This   tunnel   is 7x!i   in

I Five plant   is   being used and at  tlio
I  present rate ofjprogress the ledge will
be reached within   the next 100 days.
John   O.     Began, superintendent   of
the Last   Chance,    is   cf the   opinion
that   the   Galena ledge is a continuation of the Antoine vein.    Should this
prove true, it   will  be   an   important
,   epoch in the history  of mining in the
Sloian when the   ledge   ie opened   up
at the 000-foot depth   as it will   prove

" A Salt Lake dispatch says: Gophers at 5 cents a head, has brought
practically bankruptcy tu Toole
county, Utah. A few weeks ago
the rodents became so troublesome
, that the county commissioners offered
a bounty of a cents apiece for them.
In a few days the school houses of
t ie county were practically without
pupils, neatly every boy, armed with
traps and poison, being out in the
fields and prairies hunting gophers.
Men joined in the hunt.Jaml the little
animals were slaughtered by tliou-
sinds.one day the county paying out
8800 in bounties. So great was the
drain tbat notice has now been published abolishing the bounty.

If One  Uses the Eight Kind of Pood.
If by proper selection of food one
can feel strong and fresh at tbe end of
a day's work, it ib worth while to
know the kind of food that will produce this result.
A school teacher of Media, Kan,,
says in this connection, ''I commenced the use of Grape-Nuts Food five
months ago. At that time my health
was so poor that 1 thought would
have to give up my work altogether.
I was rapidly losing in weight, had
little appetite, was nervous and sleepless, and experienced, almost constantly a feeling of exhaustion. 1
tried various remedies without good
results, then I determined to give
particular attention to mv food, and
have learned sometiug of tho properties of Grape-Nuts for rebuilding the
brain and nerve centers.
I commenced using that food and
have since made a constant and rapid
improvement in health in spite of
the fact that all this time I have
been engaged in the most strenuous
and exacting work.
I have gained twclvo pounds in
weight and have a good appetite,
my nerves are steady and I sleep
sound. I hnve such strength and reserve force that I foel almost as
strong and fresh at the close of a
day's work ns at the beginning.
Before using Grape-Nuts I was
troubled much with weak eyes but as
my vitality increased the eyes became
stronger. I never heard of food as
nutritious and economical as Grape-
Nuts. Please omit my name from
print." Name can be given by Pos

The pastor of the Haptist church
will continue his scries of sermons on
the Paulino Epistles this morning at
the regular service and at the evening service the subject will he "Profanity and Perjury."
It always depends upon what view
of a case a person takes as to the right
or wrong of a thing. In illustration
of this fact a prominent citizen yesterday when asked if he had any news
said no, but that no news was good
news. If he hail been a eity reporter
in the city of NelBon he might have
thought differently.

Some fine catches of trout are reported as having been caught in the
lake during the last few days. A
number of Chinamen have surprlsod
the natives by catching Borne excellent fish by means of dough. It is no
uncommon thing, however, for land
fish to be kooked every time by the
sight of the "dough."
Hargeaves, who according to tho
dispatch contained in the last issue of
Tho Miner committed sucide, was
well known by many of the citizens
of Nelson and was highly .respected
by all who had thc pleasure of his
acquaintance. No reason has yet
been adduced for the rash act,but it is
claimed by those.who were most intimate with the man that he has been a
frequent sufferer from la grippe which
has affected hisinind .and it is thought
that a recent attack of the same
malady has revived the snme symptoms.

Shakespeare or some other great
preacher has said that he that will
not work shall not eat. But that was
only half a truth, because it is equally true that he that does not eat can-
rot wor��. In order to provide the
���itizens of Nelson the opportunity of
fulfilling this revised gospel George
Paquin has opened up an establishment on west Baker street, called the
Fountain Cafe, where for a modest fee
the epicurean can have as large a variety of viands as will suit the taste of
the most fastidious. The place was
until very lecently occupied as a tailor shop, but since the new tenant has
come into possession it has been
transmogrified and is now one of the
most cosy and up-to-date restaurants
in the city, and a glance at the menu
for today's dinner, advertised in another column, which will be the first
meal in the new quarters, will satisfy
the public that the Fountain Cafe is
the right place to go for a square
meal. Everything in the place is new
an I first class and after Monday all j
short orders will be broiled unless
otherwise ordered.
