Sc, Johns, Nld., Dee. 17.���Marconi
wns visited officially at Signal Hill
today by Governor Boyle, Premier
Bond and the executive committee.
They were eliown the wireless apparatus which was explained to them.
Nu attempt was made to get signals
from England because of the hostility
of the Anglo-American Cable Co.
The government officials before   visit.
iisg Marconi had to consider the protest against their going, made by the
superintendent of the Anglo-American
Cable Co., who claimed that the government should not identify itself
with either party. The officials decided that the scientifio aspect of the
Marconi plant warranted their recognizing him.
The Marconi wireless telegraph Co. of
London and the Anglo-American
Cable Co., also in London, have open
ed negotiations for the settlement of
the difficulty between them arising
from Mr. Marconi's work here. In
the meantime, as it Is important tbat
Marconi's operations be expedited,
lie will cease his experiments here
and leave next Sunday for Nova
Scotia, where in the event of the fail-
uie of the present negoilatins, he will
selett another site for a wireless telegraph station. The inventor's work in
Nova Scotia will occupy him abunt a
week when he will leave for   London.
TO HIDE A RUNAWAY.
(iirls Deported Drowned Located Alive
and Well.
Pottage la Prairie, Dec. 17.���It has
been rumored around town for some
weeks that the two DavidBon girls,
who were reported as drowned in the
AsMnnaboiue river Bome mouths ago,
were not actually Oiowned, and both
girls nre still alive. The girls were
down at the old fort one afternoon
last summer with their sister nnd Mr.
II. Hennet and it was reported during
the afternoon that both theglilshad
beon drowned while bathing in the
river. A search was made for the
bodies, continuing over a week and
was joined in by large numbers of
citizens, but neither nf the bodies
could he found and nothing has been
heard of them since. Yesterday the
rumor was widely spread that one of
the two girls was back in town and
that the other was married and living
in North flakcta, and that the report
of the drowning was purely fabulous.
Citizens are inclined tu think the
report as to the drowning "as got up
to cover the disappearance ef
girls.

MONUMENT TO HARPER.
Ottawa, Deo. 17.���The committee in
charge  of the   Harper   memorial   has
collected $1,800.     they  want  $4,000.
Fagan    on   Smallpox
Interior of B. C.
Victor'.a, Dec. 17.���Dr. Fagan, secretary of the provincial board of
health,has returned foim a trip to thc
upper country for the purpose of looking into the condition there in regard
to smallpox. He found in most of the
districtsa sharper lookout being maintained, and such oases as have developed have been isolated and are pto-
gressing favorably.
At Rossland there arc two cases,
both doing well. At Phoenix one case
has developed in one of the mines,
and the doctor found it necessary to
isulate 147 men. These have been
taken to another part of the workings,
and kept at work there underground
so that while practically quarantined,
they arc not prevented from following
their ordinary avocation.
At McQuinlan's camp, on thc V. V.
and E. in the vicinity of Grand Fcrks,
three eases have developed, and 75
men had to be isolated in consequence. All thc men mentioned were
engaged in construction work, and the
quarantined men have been detached
to a section by themselves, and will
be kept under surveillance until the
disease has had time to develop.
On the construction gang of the
Republic and Grand Forks line a case
has also developed, and in this instance the eighty odd men who bad
been exposed to contagion were dispatched back across the boundary line
whence they came. All through the
districts he visited the doctor found
that the disease had Veen introduced
from Washington state, where the
greatest laxity is allowed in connection with the epidemic.
There are two cases in the Crow's
Neat Puss, ono at Marysville, and the
other at Kimberley, but both aie
doing well.
The doctor confirms the apprehension felt as mentioned in the Times
regarding the development of the
disease during the coming summer.
The type is becoming more virulent,
and the authorities south of the border
exercise as little caution as ever in
checking the propagation of the disease. The British Columbia officials
this year will be required to redouble
their vigilance along the border in
order to protect the towns and camps
of this piovince.
AN OBSTREPEROUS DEPUTY.

Rome, Dec. [11.���Signor Ferri,
socialist, whose refusal to lenve th

had been ordered to do so, resulting
in ao adjournment of the bouse amid
great disorder, furnished a further

Being excluded from the floor on account of his conduct yesterday, Ferri

Machines in New York Rotten.
Rochester, Dec. 17.���Justice William Travres Jerome, recently elected
on the Fusion ticket in Greater New
York, spoke here tonight. Mr. Jerome's subject was Tho Municipal
Problem in New York as Affected by
the Liquar Tax Law. After speaking
of the enromous vote of the municipalities in the country for some years
and tbe growth at the expense of
morals in many districts, the speaker
said: I know that politics in this
part of the country are quite pure,
but in our city both machines are so
fundamentally rotten that there is
nothing to choose between them.
Unless you approach problems honestly youjeannot solve tbem inthe city of
New York because no administration
can remain long enough in oflice and
grapple with them, but will be at the
tender mercies of Tammany Hall, and
Tammany Hall will solve no problem
which is possible to be solved at all."

MYSTERIOUS INFLUENCE.
His Magic Spell Brought $185,000 Out
of Samuel Stevenson.
Chicago, Doc. 17.���Testimony was
offered before Judge Tnllsy today in
the suit for the appointment of a receiver for John Alexander Dowie's
Zion lace industries to show that
Dowie possessed some mysterious
power' over his disciples. Samuel
Stevenson, the plaintiff, who charges
Dowie with having defrauded bim of
$185,000 by this power, swore tbat
Dowie waved his hands and exerted
this influence by pressing him closely
to his body.
The attorney for the defense tried to
have this power appear in the
records as magnetism, but the court
would not permit it.
Stevenson testified tbat thiee times
he had felt an indescribable awe
when Dowie pressed him to his body
and that from this influence he and
other persons felt that Dowie could
call down a curse upon bim e actually. He related how Dowie was said
to have declared that it the late
Dwight L. Moody did not cease hiB
fight against Zion tbat he would not
say that Moody might not die and that
later Dowie told how Moody had
taken sick and die. Stevenson told
how three times he had tried to get
out of Dowie's influence but had
failed until now.
LOSS BY FLOODS.
Ithaca, N. Y., Dec. 17.���Latest developments in the flood situation in
Ithaca show that tbe loss by damage
to property was underestimated considerably. It not appears that the
original estimate of $2,000,000 will
be almost double. The suspension of
railway and street railway traffic continued throughout the day and few or
no malls reached the city up to midnight. Early in tbe evening the gas
supply was restored but the eleotric
plant ia still inactive. All of the
Cornell university shops were able to
resume operations this afternoon.
The university property most damaged
waa the Percy field, across which a
strong current continued to flow until
this morning.
BLOWN TO ATOMS.

plant exploded and the men and their
horses were blown to atoms, The
windows in almost every house and
store iu Butler were shattered by the
force of the explosion. Only one
small piece of flesh was found near
where the explosion occurred.
Whether It is a part of one of the
man's bodies or a piece of horse flesh
haa not yet been determined.

MARKETS FOR COPPER.
W
Gos-
M. Brewer Replies to R. E,
nel and Urges Active Steps.
A representative of tho Victoria
Times recently interviewed W. M.
Brewei, M.E., relative to the position
taken by R. E. Gosnell, secretary to
the premier, in a recent mterivew
granted to the Times.
Mr. Brewer stated that he was very
pleased to Bee tbat Mr. Gosnell attached so much importance to procuring
statistics relative to the markets of
the Orient for the products of British
Columbia, especially copper, lead,
silver, iron, steel, paper, pulp, etc.
It is a move in the light direction," he Baid, "and the fact that at
present the shipping facilities are
against us is a discovery well worth
knowing, because 'forewarned ia
forearmed,' and the provincial government can now make proper represen-
to the Dominion government on thc
subject with a view to suosidizing
ship building or encouraging the industry on the PaciBo coast. It was in
order to bring out the weak points
regarding my suggestions to commence investigations an to the markets across the Pacific ocean which
first led me to a discussion of tbe subject, and the facter so prominently
brought out by Mr. Gosnell while ot
serious moment, need not, in my
opinion, binder the compiling of such
statistics as are necessary to inform
capitalists with regard to the demands
of that market, because that stumbling block oan be removed if it is
ascertained that the markets are substantially as important aB is generally
supposed.
"That they arc so, I have no doubt,
in fact the press of th�� Sound cities
and San Francisco is continually calling attention to them. I doubt,
though, if the people in Pacific Const
states are any better posted on them
than those of British Col uinbla.
"At tbe present time thc production
of the refined products and manufactures 1 have mentioned is so limited
that I may be considered as taking
time by thu forelock premature, hut
this is not a good argument because it
has been demonstrated that the first in
thc field reap the biggest harvests to
lar aB commercial expansion goes.
Twenty yenm ago the Pennsylvania
iron masters scouted the idea of danger from competition with the Alabama furnaces, but today the product
of tbe latter not only compete success
fully with the procuet of Pennsylvania, but it was demonstrated when
No. I foundry Iron was selling at
$7.50 per ton that the Alabama iron
would be exported to England, and
sold at a profit while Pennsylvania
Iron of thc same grade cuuld not he.
The difficulty with regard to shipping waa one of the main adverse
factors which the Alabama iron masters have to contend with. They
fought a hard fight though, and won
without any subsidies or help Irom
the Federal government.
"I believe llritish Columbia can do
the same, though of course if aid can
be obtained from the Dominion so
much the better. But what Is of
paramount i'rportano is to ascrtain
the extent and demands otth.-markets across the Pacific, and whether
those markets arc the substantal
realiitirs the press states tbem to be
ot mythical subjects   useful   only   for
Vancouver, Dec. 17.���Major K Q.
Edwards-Leckie of this city, today received instructions from tbe adjutant-
general of the department of militia
at Ottawa to proceed to Kootenay and
there to recruit for the quota of 30O
men to be added to tbe strength of
the Canadian Mounted Rifles. Major
Leckie will leave fot thc interior on
Friday next and will commence his
duties as recruiting officer in Rosa-
land on December 23rd. Ten men
will be enlisted in that oity. From
Iics.lncd Major Leckie will go to
Nelson wbeie ten more men will be
enlisted. No enlistments will take
place on Christmas day but on the day
following ten men will be added to

ELECTRIC LHUIT BYLAW.
One of the chief objections to the
electric light hylaw is that it will
increase the taxes on realty and improvements. There is no doubt whatever that it would have this effeot,
and besides, this the increased taxation
would result in making Nelson a
town which investors would shun.
People who have money to invest in
realty, those about to embark
iu business, manufacturers who desire
to erect plants, where they have a
choice of several places to select from,
and where other tilings are equal,
inavnably locate in tlie town whei-9
the municipal debt is small and the
rate of taxation low. Nelson needs
more stores, more residents, more
factories in order to reach the size
which its position entitles it and
nothing should be done to handicap
it in the race for the commercial and
manufacturing supremaoy of the
Kootenays. Other towns are coming
up in the Kootenays which have ambitions of the same nature us Nelson,
but none of them possess the natural
advantages which Nelson has as a residential, manufacturing and business
center, and it would not be a wise
move to put too burdensome a debt on
the present capacity of the city to pay,
which might prevent these advantages
from being folly brought ont. This
we believe wonld surely be the case if
the municipal indebtedness should be
made larger than it ought to be.
With the natural increase in the
size and importance of the place,
which will come if a conservative,
progressive and wise policy is pur-
BUed, there will be a time, and a time
which is not fur away, when the expenditure of ���200,000 or $.100,000 for
an electric plant will nut be a matter
of a very serious consequence, but at
present the raising of 8150,000 is more
than the city should borrow for that
purpose, especially whon it is known
that it would crowd close to the full
bo��towing capacity of the city. A
number of well informed ratepayers,
and men who arc of tile progressive type
and who have the interest of the city
at heart, have signified their intention
of voting against the bylaw and principally bean use they consider it would
be impolitic, at the present juncture to
further burden the municipality with
debt.
Nelson's credit is good and its condition from almost any standpoint
which it is viewed is excellent, hut
the desire of nil is to keep it in that
condition ami not hurt it by burdening it witli a larger debt at the present time.
So far as lights arc concerned the
city still hns its own plant, which can
be reinforced. Then there is the Nelson Lbs and Coke company. It is a
home institution which is engaged in
furbishing li^ht to tho people of this
oity and in rates are not exorbitant,
If the eity plant is nut of sulllcieiit
capacity, and If a majority of the
people do not care to enter into a
contract with the West Kootenay
Power and Light company to furnish
additional power, the gas compnny
is prepaid! at all times to give them
an efficient light service at reasonable
oost.
The city is not in so had a condition, so far as illuminnnts are eon-
crned, as those who would desire to
rush it and make it borrow 8l!i0,00O
for the purpose of providing a plant
would like to make us believe. The
expendture of the sum of tlMl.ooO and
there are some very conservative pco
pie who think the plant would cost
considerably more than this nmoiint,
is u matter lint requires careful consideration   and   nt least a proper est^-

CABINET REPRESENTATION.
Senator Templeman in dicusssing
the statement made by Joseph Martin
at a recent Liberal association meeting
in Vancouver, to the effeot that the
west from Winnipeg to Biitish Colnm
bia should hive three representatives
in the Dominion cabinet, heartily
agreed with Mr. Martin. He added
tbat .lie was of tho opinion that tho
Ynkon Territory will have a representative in the Dominion parliament
before long. The people of the west
are entitled to it and the Liberal government, he said, would undoubtedly
take action in this direction. Thu
census showed that the west is growing rapidly and tbat the increase iu
British Columbia was paitioularly
large. The material development,
too, is very great. It Is nothing short
of an injustice that a section like
llritish Columbia should be without a single representaive ln tho
Federal cabinet.
Uon. Clifford Sifton now represents
a large population and an area of im-
pottant country in the federal cabinet, in which he bas tbe portfolio of
minister of the interior. He lepresents
Manitoba, the Northwest Territories,
and British     Columbia.
While Mr. Sifton is a man of more
than ordinary executive ability, and
of great energy and capacity, he
cannot spread himself over so large a
teiritory and attend to the wants of
so maoy people as they should be
looked after. Manitoba, British
Columbia and the Northwest Territories each should have a representative in the cabinet This would result
in each having its interests properly
looked after, and would he a more
equitable arrangement than having
only one representative for the west
in the chief executive body of the
Dominion. With an additional senator from British Columbia to represent the Yale-Cariboo constituency and a cabinet minister to represent the province, British
Columbia would be receiving the consideration to whicb it is justly
entitled.

The main question for wage earners
in llritish Columbia is the question of
Oriental immigration, says the Post
Outlook. A man does not attempt to
improve his house or plant a garden
with a writ of ejectment hanging over
his head. It !b perhaps fortunate for
the labor interests of British Columbia
that they do not have to fight this
question alone. All classes and sec-
tons in Australasia excepting possibly
Queensland are a unit on this question
and will soon force it to an issue. All
that has to be done here is to see that
British Columbia gets the same treatment as Australia does. If our talk
about the uuity of the Empire means
anything what else should it mean
than this; Common aotion towards
common ends where common sentiments inBoire the public.
In the 6fty-two years that have
elapsed sinoe gold was first discovered
in California, in "forty-eight" the
output of the mines has reached the
enormous total of something over a
billion dollars; to be exact, the
amount is $1,350,000,000, says an exchange. Tho largest yearly production was made in 1852, when the
placers were at the height of their
glory, the amount being {81,304 700.
Thu old placer mines of the early days
bave long aio.Se disappeared, and the
crude methods ut first in use have been
replaced by thoroughly modern skill
and appliances. The surface workings of fifty years back have been
followed by scientifio mining in the
deep levels. Never before have California's mines been so favorably regarded or so active as they are today
and while the output of the gold
alone has not advanced,the production
of other minerals has made such
strides ahead that the outlook is most
assuring. With the aid ol science and
perfected appliances, the mines today
in California are doing more and net-
ter than ever before iu the . .eutful
history of that state.

RELIEF.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. Il
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst,
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rov. O F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, ohained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it n trial.
To my astonishment the trial noted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of doty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
.been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for th" past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th Btreet, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commenced taking it about the flrst of November. I very soon notioed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappear.d
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

full-sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. I have a family of four children, and
for six years wns unable to work. I am now in tho best of health and am doing

The shareholders of the Oomleuougli
Mines, limited, have jnst received a
veiy welcome Christmas box in a
dividend cheque (or one cent per share
on their holdirgs. The mine is doing
well and the circular accompanying
the cheque contains Ihe intimation
that a similar dividend will be paid
on January 15tb, 1902.
At the record oflice the following
records were entered yesterday . Locations, Klondyke, about one mile up
Wild Ilurse creek, near Ymir, by E.
l'eters; Oie Mountain, on Ore monn-
tuin, about 1.1 miles s. ullicast from
Salmo, by W. McArthur: Ore Ben,
adjoining the Ore Mountain, by John
II. Benson. The transfer of a one-half
interest ic the Elko mineral claim
from Arthur M. Bouillon to John
Svoboda and S. Marshall was entered,
the consideration being $200.
A large quantity of supplies was
shipped to the Molly (iibson mine yesterday by the steamer Nelson. This
pronerty is now looking in excellent
shape and about 000 tons of ore is said
to be on the dump awaiting shipment
to the smelter, to which several consignments have already been sent
The lack of snow preventing sleighing has interfered with the transpor-
alion facilities of the mine as it is
necessary to transfer ore and supplies
to wagons at about three miles from
the lake, and haul it to the landing.
With the advent of more snow tlie
shipments will increase at once, and
can be hauled direct from the foot of
the tramway to- the lake, thus effecting a considerable saving in time and
handling. Last year about 800 tons
of ore was mined during the season
but the record for the present year
promises to be raised considerably
although the time in which mining
has been carried on has been short.
The ore is chiefly galena ot ralher a
low grade as regards lead, but carrying good silver values of about ten
ounces to the per cent, of lead. The
outlook for the mine during the com-
ing year is very bright and before
long it will probably be a large and
steady shipper.

MONEY FOR SCHOOLS.
Editor Miner���Without entering
into ary controversy regarding any of
the money bylaws now befcre the
people of Nelson, as secretary of the
school board, I wish to remind the
electors that in 1902 and every subsequent year the city will be obliged to
raise a considerable sum of money for
school purposes. As nearly as it is
now possible to estimate, the government school grant to Nelson in 1902
will be 84,100, while for salaries, fuel
and sundry expenses betweeu 88,000
and $9,000 will be required, thus leaving a balance of about 84,000 to be
raised by taxation.

New York, and they, in turn, informed
the commander of the ship that the president was without authority tu accept the
gifts. But the commander was not willing to carry the presents hack to bis
royal master, for the sultan had a way of
cutting off the heads of his messengers
if they failed to deliver his presents. So
he politely hut firmly insisted that they
should be accepted.
l-'eariug thnt this might give rise to unpleasant complications, the president
finally decided to refer the question to
congress as a last resort. Accordingly, on
May 21 he nddressed a communication tn
CDLLIBLE MARINES?
the senate Belting forth thu difficulty' hu
was in and asking thnt some action
might be taken. The matter was duly
considered hy congress, and nt the eud of
two mouths' deliberation it passed a resolution authorising the president to accept
the gifts in the uame of the United
States government and to dispose of
such as could not conveuiently be stored
iu the state department. After three
months of correspondence, red tape, diplomacy and legislation the sultan's
Christmas presents were finally accepted,
and then the president was put to tho
trouble ot selling the horses, the shawls
and the rosewater, while Uncle Sam
was given the further trouble of finding
a suitable place lo store the remaining
gifts and was afterward put to great
expense in capturing tho thief who carried off thc entire collection in a bag
and was only caught after a long chase.
This is not Ihe only time that Uncle
Sam has got himself into trouble by his
popularity. Por many years our consuls
and ministers in Asia and Africa had a
hard time trying to convince emperors,
sultans and kings that it was against the
laws of our couutry for them to accept
the presents which these sovereigns insisted upon offering them to show how
much they thought of Uncle Bam. Many
of these offerings consisted of animals-
horses, elephants, tigers and the like���
aud our representatives had no end of
trouble iu finding accommodations for
such unwieldly and ferocious gifts, which
are ofttimes forced upon them in spite of
their protests.
Of course, Unci* Sam hns received
many presents whieh he has been very
glad to accept as tokens of friendship
nud good will on the part of foreign governments. These gifts embrace a wide
variety of objects, from I plain whale's
tooth���presented by the king ot the Fiji
Islands���to  costly  ornaments,   handsome
?ieces of furniture and rare paintings.
'1% first gift received by the American
government wns two paintings, oil portraits of Louis XVI and atari* Antoinette, presented hy the king und quean
themselves soon after thu clos* of our
Revolutionary war.
Unci* Sam has been particularly fortunate lu tbe matter of vases. The
French government's regard fur Unci*
Bam is embodied In snuie beautiful
Bevies vshch of the highest artistic beauty and very valuable. Among the most
noteworthy are the two French Limoges
vases In the Nntlonul museum. They
are each over eight feet iu height, one
decorated with emblems of war nnd the
oilier with symbols of peace. Their total
cash value���if we may be allowed to
place a money valuation on a gift���Is
��17,500.
Another vase that should not be overlooked Is lhe on* awarded hy the emperor of Germany to this country as first
prlr.0 at the Berlin Fishery exposition in
1SS0. It Is mad* of silver, gold and
glass, tludiled with Jewels nnd Is uf exquisite design and workmanship.
On the outside of the Nutlonnl museum, as though deserving of no better
accommodation, is n huge stone sarcophagus, or coffin, which wns presented
by the admiring people of Syrln to President Jackson. "Old Hickory" did not
appreciate Iho gift and swore that h*
would not be buried in it. It Is, therefore, not looked upon with much favor
except by tourists, who have up to this
time chipped off more than ten pound* of
it as mementos.
Next to vases Uncle Sum is specially
rich In swords���swords of all kinds, most
of them handsome and costly���Hint have
been presented by various foreign governments or their representative*. Medals, too, are a common form of gift. The
sultan of Turkey showed his good will by
sending us a medal In commemoration of
the four hundredth anniversary of the
discovery Of America. It is an exquisite
enmoo In a case of gold studded with
diamonds.
Of course every one Is familiar with
the two great statues presented by the
people of Prance to the people of America���the statue of Liberty, which stands
at the entrance to the harbor of New
York, nnd the Lafayette statue, which
adorns the beautiful park in Washington
opposite the White House und hns th*
distinction of being the only official monument to n foreigner lu Ihe national capital.
Mention might be ininle of inntiy oth*r
gl 'tn received by Unci* Sam from his
foreign brethren, hut those already ciled
will serve tu show by their number and
liy their variety how great and how
widespread is the esteem lu which out
���ouatrr I* held. -Ladles' Hum* Journal.

"There are mor* old fashioned clock*
around than people would think," says
an Augusta man who makes a specialty
of repairing them. "Most of those with
tbe wooden works ar* of American make,
I think. It must have been expensive to
import the clocks with brass movements
in those early days, and the ingenious
Yankees set to work to make their own
clocks from wood. Moat of them ar*
made from the apple tree and with only
a brass scape wheel and iron wires. They
are not so different from the clocks made
uowaduye. un. they can be repaired and
Will really keep excellent time.
"The principal thing to do in repairing
them ia to put new teeth in th* wooden
wheels wher* they have been worn or
been broken off. These ar* dovetniled in
aud then filed Into shape, and th* clock is
as good as new. Then, again, the holes
In the wooden backs ar* worn, and brass
bushings are put in.
"Most of the old clocks are eight day
clocks, and they are frequently less trouble to put in order than the modern
clocks. It is the pencrulum which regulates th* movement of th* cluck, and
those long, heavy pendulums ar* less affected hy jars than shorter ones. Being
large, particularly those with the grandfather movement, as w* call that ot th*
large clocks, they arc more apt to be stationary.
"Most of the clock* brought to me ar*
from 50 t* 100 years old, thuugi, unfortunately, they ar* not dated. I law on*
the other day that was known to lie 300
years old, but that was an imported clock.
Last year I repaired about 40 old clicks.
"There is always a demand in the market for th* old clocks, and I know nost
of thos* that are to be found are genuine.
One would b* more apt to find th* works
genuine than th* case. They may be In
good condition when /he cas* has been
battered aud broken to pieces. It would
hardly pay to mult* new clocks to sell as
old ones. There is not a large number
ot them sold, and * man may hold clocks
for a year or so and then sell several.
When you come to think of It, it is not ��o
strange that there are so many genuine
old clocks to be found. If in the early
days each family had one, that wonld
make a good stock for th* people who
care for th*m.
"Dealers travel sH over the country
here and everywhere abroad, picking up
old fashioned furniture. They visit the
old junk stores, pick up things for a song,
bring them over here, have them repaired
and sell them for big prices."���Kennebec

FOOL TRAIT OF CRABS.
Malt*   Prlaoaera   at   Themselves   hy
Crawling Into I.lve Oysters.
An oyster shuckor found in the shell of
a bivalve what he called a baby crab.
"That's the first on* of that kind I ever
found in a Long Island oyster," said th*
old shiieker, "and I'v* been shucking
along th* sound for 20 years. But such
crabs are frequently found io Virginia
oyster shells and ar* considered great
delicacies when you get enough of them.
Last summer I was shucking while on a
visit to Virginia, and I found enough
baby crabs iu oyster shells to fill an
ordinary site coffeepot. A young woman
saw tbem and clapped her hand* at th*
sight. She asked m* what I would take
for them, and I said $2 without thinking.
Sho took m* up quicker than a mice, and
off she ran with them a* if she had
drawn a prize."
"Why do th*y go Into oyster shells?"
"I don't know. I asked an old Virginia
shiieker that same question, and h* said
lt was because they wera lonesome and
went in for company. But I don't believe It. That would mean that canbs
think, and we know they don't. Neither
doe* a lobster. I think th* biggest fool
ln water is a lobster. I suppose you
know how we catch lobsters in th*
sound? Take a box, bor* holes in th*
sides of lt snd slak it. Put out your
buoy so you'll know wher* to find th*
box. L*by* the box sunk all nlfht and
go nut th* next morning, haul It up, and
you've got a box full of lobster*. And
the funny thing about It la that they go
into the holes backward. Even people
will put thair heads lata holes wher*
they ar* looking, but it tikes a lobster
to back iate a hoi*, snd they keep on
doing It. Fisk ar* smart. You have to
play with th*m to bite. But lobsters,
they back right Into your arm*. Biggaat

"Whenever you hear a man employ
the expression 'Tell that to the marines,'
with an intonation that attempta to picture the sea soldier as the most gullible
of human propositions, in uniform or out
of It, you may safely conclude that that
man doesn't know what he is talking
about," snid a warrant officer of the navy
who served for many years as a mnster
at arms. When I was a Jimmy Legs, as
the bluejackets call a ship's master at
arms, I came very close to losing the rating badge off my sleeve and the brass
buttons off my blouse through the foxl-
npss of a puir of marines on board my
���hip.
"One of the best sea soldiers I wa*
ever shipmate with was an Irishman-
call him Jim Corrignn���who hnd the corporal's chevrons when he joined the ship
I wns the Legs of. He came aboard at
the Mare Island navy yard befoie wc
pulled up our mud hook for a cruise dowu
th* west coast of Mexico and Central
ard South America. He was a rattling
gi od soldier, a clean, spick nnd span man
who had in his ditty box a degree that
he had taken at the University ot Dublin. He bad but one apparent fault���
thc one that doubtless worked him into
a tovernmeut Btrnight uniform as a soldier of the Bca���which was an abiding
low for hot nnd rebellious liquorB. He
ke| t this rum passion down while on
board ship, but whenever he 'hit the
beieh' he drank five glasses ot liquor tf.
tht one glass tossed off by any of hiB
compantous, marines or soldier*.
"From a quiet, reserved man he
changed into a fighting maniac when
drunk. Corrigan didn't go ashore from
the time he joined the ship until we
pulled into the harbor of Acnpulco. Then
he weat over the side, and within 20
minutes after he put his foot on the
bench he was fighting drunk on mescal
and knocking dowu UreaBers In sets of
fours. He didn't show up aboard for
four days, breaking his liberty three
days. He wns still drunk and ugly when
he reported himself to the officer ot the
deck. The officer of the deck said to
him. 'Well, Corrignn, you've mnde a mess
of it this time���three days overdue aud
still in your potations.' And Corrigan
made for him.
"It means death in some of the world's
navies even in time ot peace for an enlisted man to raise his hand to an officer,
hut the punishment is a hit less severe in
our outfit. Corrigan was beaten down
and overcome after a terrific struggle.
He was put in double Irons in the brig,
and general court martial charges were
immediately preferred against him. He
was to be shipped up to Mare Island,
with an escort, on one of the up going
Panama boats, for his general court martial, and the least he could expect was
dishonorable discharge and three years
at the smallest calculation at hard labor
iu the Mare Island naval prison. There
wasn't to be a boat up bound for San
Francisco for ten days or so, aud we
were booked to remain at AcapUlco for a
couple of weeks.
"Corrigan was quiet and incidentally
pretty sore in more ways than one when
he came out of his mescal trance. Inasmuch as the temperature of the brig was
about 120 degrees and thn steamer would
not be along for ten days, he was given
the liberty of the ship during the day
and only confined in tbe brig after 'pipe
down.' The top sergeant of tbe marine
guard nnd myself were ordered to watch
him closely to see that he didn't go over
tbe side.
"Corrigan'a only chum and confidant
aboard waB another marine, also an
Irishman���call him Mike Oallngher���
who, like Mulvauey, had often been 're
jooced' from the corporal's rate. He waa
then a private. Corrigau and Oallngher
were noticed to have their heads together
a good deal while the former was waiting for the steamer to come along and
tako him up to the navy yard for trial,
but I didn't suspect anythlug.
"One afternoon Gallagher 'put In' for
liberty. Liberty parties used to leave
the ship In that port shortly before 8
o'clock In tbe evening. On the afternoon
before Gallagher put his nnme down for
liberty a young ensign had joined the
ship, arriving on a south bound Panama
boat. When the new ensign, who was
the officer of the deck, started to call off
the names of the men In the liberty party, among the first wns thnt of Michael
Gallagher. When Gallagher's name was
called off, Jim Corrigan, spick and span
in his best uniform, stepped forward, saluted, said 'Here, sir,' and walked down
the ladder to the launch. The ensign
didn't know his face from Gallagher'*,
having just joined the ship the day before. The 18 men In the liberty party
knew, though, and the nudaeity of Cor-
rigun's move stunned them. They understood It instantly, however, and It wasn't
up to thorn to say anything.
"The liberty party was checked off on
the book, and away went the cutter to
the shore, Corrigau sitting In the stern
sheets as cool ss a cucumber. The other
men In tbe cutter dldu't say anything to
him. Men-o'-war's men are not talkative under such circumstances. Corrigan
stepped off the cutter, made straight for
a place where he knew he could hire *
horse, and within half an hour after he
left the ship he was striking into the interior for the railroad. He had $300 in
gold, thc savings of a former enlistment,
along with him. He has never been heard
of since.
"When the liberty party left the ship,
Gallagher was hiding under a tarpaulin
on the to'gallant fo'c'sle. When darkness fell witb tropical suddenness, be let
himself down the anchor chains, into
ashore, and the next morning he returned
with his liberty party, clean and sober.
] had missed Corrigan when I hunted for
him at 'pipe down' to put him In the brig
for the night. I was responsible for him,
but 1 never suspected how the trick had
been turned until thc day Gallagher was
paid off, when he told mc about It In a
burst ot rummy confidence. I never
'peached,' although the job came within
nn ace of getting me 'busted' to thc rate
of an ordinary seaman." ��� Washington

HALL VS. LARAO CASE.
Medical Men Testify Widely Different
as to Disinfectants.
The almost famous case of Hall vs.
Lallan was on trial all day in the
Ijounty court yesterday before his
honor, Judge Leamy. As in the prevails trial S. 8. Taylor.K.C.,appeared
for the plaintiffs and W. A. Macdnn-
alil, K C��� instructed by P. E.
the defendant.    Much   of
for
Wilson,
the evince taken was the same as lhat sub-
initted   in   tbe   flrst   trial so that the
,e taken up with the witnesses was
tunc
It is   expected   that
an
Th
was mostly
livo    qualities
lormallne
miller  shorter.
,.n,l will be reached this afternoon,
evidence as in the former cases
in connection with reia-
of formaldehyde or
and sulphur as a disinfectant. Dr. Hall and Dr. Arthur gave
evidence as to the damnge done to the
office, the furniture and the instruments and a'so on the subject of disinfectants. Ui. MoLennau told of his
experience with disinfectants and he
preferred formaldehyde on aecount of
its more penetrating qualities. He
luil used it in the ease of the suspects
arriving from Spokane under direction of Dr. LaBau and Dr. Fagan Had
also been present. He considered that
the 10 per cent, preparation hung up
on sheets in a room would thoroughly
disinfect the room and would not
damage any fabric or instrument. He
had never heard of sulphur being used
where there were any such things as
Instruments in the room to be disinfected. He would not use it in any
case. He thought sulphur a sham
anil the general opinion of the medical authorities was against its use. It
was still used in Canada and in Great
Cumin but the Unitea States and the
Continent had discarded it altoge'.her.
If the Dominion authorities directed
its use he would say they were in
error. He then went into details as
to the damage done to the instruments
anil said he would not care to use
them now. ne had been advised
never to have instruments rcplated
though he knew it was done some
times.   Thc plating would not hold.
The principal part of Dr. Rose's
evidence was direoted to the results of
certain experiments he had conducted
while medical superintendent of the
Royal Victoria hospital at Montreal.
They had there put cultures of various
disease germs in small sacks within
various thicknesses of cloth, deposited
these in chambers and subjected them
to tile various disiiifectan's.
The conclusion reached from these
esuciiiiients was that formaline was
more penetrating in its effect than
sulphur, and the textile fabric was
not impaired in any way. He also
was examined as to the details of the
loss sustained through the closing of
his oflice and the interruption to his
practice through thc workmen being
there for several days making the
renovations necessary. Had formaline
been used the offices could have been
used wilhin six hours.
Ilr. Sinclair, Dominion quarantine
ntlieiT at Rossland, and a medical
practitioner there, was the flrst witness for the defendant. He had practised medicine for 35 years. He bad
always used sulphur for the reason
that he found it effective, and he
would use nothing else. The instructions of the Dominion government
were to use it. He used Bulphur in
disinfecting cars of the railwBy company; he took three pounds of sulphur to the 1,000 cubic feet of space.
He thought that course proper and
would continue to pursue it; ho would
not consider formaline for a moment.
In the cross examination Di. Sinclair stated that tlie safety of the pub
He wns the one thing to be guided by
private interests cut no figure though
he wonld of course not destroy property needlessly. If he were to have
his office disinfected he would lemove
his Instruments llrst and put them in
hot water. It was neglectful of anyone not tn do so. He had never usod
fortrmliMi, he did not think it would
destroy animal life. Some authorities,
WOltly Amerioans, were quoted but
Dr. Sinclair would not accept any of
Hieto us settling the question. The
llritish government directed the usa of
sulphur and he was British and would
Uny by that.
Mr- Taylor oited the laBt regulations issued by Dr. Fagan, secretary
ot thu provincial board of hoalth, but
Dr. Sinclair did not look upon him as
����� iiuthonty; it was doubtful, he
Mid, whether he had disinfected one
""use in the past three years.
Dr. Hawkey, Dr. Reinhart and Dr.
Dougherty also gave evidence all
strongly favoring sulphur as the only
effective disinfectant, and against the
"��' of formalilno.

Mr. Young repor's that great interest
is taken in his company there and
that as a result of his visit some large
blocks of its stock have been purchased at good figures. Mr. Young
says the Similkameen Valley Smelting, Mining and Development company hns boon organized with a capital stock of 81,000,000 for the purpose
of erecting a smelter at Ashnola.
Mr. Young says the smelter will go
up without delay and will be of 1,000
tons a day oapacity, although designed so that this can he increased to
::,000 without the slightest difficulty
so soon as t'.e number of operating
mines shall have heen sufficiently in
creased to keep a larger smelter busy.
Copper and Kennedy mountains,
about two and one-half miles distant
from Ashnola, will be the new smelter's chief source of ore supply, the
product of the properties on these two
mountains being cupper aud gold in
valuable and easily worked combinations. Silver-leal ores will be drawn
from lloulder creek where development has progressed sufficiently to
show immense bodies admirably
placed for profitable working.
The. ores of the Michel Plate mine
in the vicinity of Twenty-Mile and of
other properties in that locality ate
high grade gold and silver, with just
sufficient irun to be Self-fluxing and
most economical.
It, too, will find a natural market
at Ashnola, while���for which reason
the new town has been selected by
the smelter projectors���lime and every
other smelter requisite is found in
geierous abundance within a radius
of 10 miles the fact of having fuel at
thoir doors, giving the smelter people
an immense advantage over their
business rivals.

Much sympathy is felt for Mr. and
Mrs. Batchelor and family, of Fair-
view, iu the loss they have sustained
in the death of their son and brother,

A delivery team left standing in
front of a wholesale establishment on

meeting with fair success in his
labors, holding meetings twice a week

English and to understand western
doctrines, attend.
The recent coid snnp has had the
effect of causing the water in the lake
to sink considerably, the level now
being two inches lower than the lowest mark touched last year. It is
stated that the lowest water is usually
in January and February and if this
occurs this winter it will probably
occasion considerable Inconvenience
at the different landing places along
the lake.
The proximity of a stock of 20 cords
of wood to the skating ponds along
the lake shore is causing the owner of
the wood considerable anxiety as it
is four.d most convenient for lighting
lionilrcs by the small buyB who arc
skating near. Since one boy was
arrested for stealing the wood not so
much has been taken, but it is still
disappearing in small quantities.
A meeting of the members of Emmanuel Congregational church wns

A dance was gi��en by the proprietor
of the Royal hotel last evening at
whiob about 25 couples were present
and a very pleasant evening spent.
A rather nnusual spectacle was seen
on the Nelson-Granite rojd yesterday
morning in the shape of two old gray-
bearded men pulling along a handsled
on which was an oia mine pump wi'h
a quantity of metal pipe. The pair
were evidently heading for a claim on
Bird creek, which they bad abandoned
temporarily on account of its frequent
flooding, and intended pulling their
heavy load ovei the six miles of road
and eight miles of rough trail to the
claim.

year ago for the purpose of assuming
the position of general freight agent

tho city last evening. Mr. Peters is
tbe president of the Nelson Tramway

this club to form a oity league so ns
to arrange a series of games.
The contractor began yesterday and
by night bad almost finished the task
of clearing thu sidewalk In front of
the structure which has been fenced in
for something over six months. This
gives a clear passage to the store of
D. J. Robertson and Co., which firm
has suffered no little loss of trade
because of the fencing in of the sidewalk which impeded access to their
establishment on one side. This firm
and other establishments in the same
vicinity should bave an increase in
tlieir trade now that the sidewalk is
clear again, and when the postoffice is
finished there should be considerable
addition in their trade by reason of
the large number who will pass along
Vernon street going to and coming
from the postoffice. It is tne intention
of the poatofUce contractors tc cover
the walls und stop work on the building for the seaon within thc next two
or three days. Work will be resumed
on the structure early in the spring
and it should be ready for ooeupancy
hy next fall.

We are NOT BUSTED and moreover in our 20 years of business career we have always managed to pay too cents on the dollar.
Some people may not be busted but they came very near it a short
time ago.
Our Sale has been a decided success, so much so that it has evidently
hit some of our competitors hard who are advertising discount sales
ranging from 10 to 50 per cent., which means that on good staple
goods you only get a 10 per cent, rebate.
Now we bought the stock we are at present selling, at a low rate on
the dollar, and we are letting everything go at and under wholesale
cost, which means a discount of 50 per cent, and over on all goods.
The clothing we bought in this stock is high-class, manufactured hy
some of the largest firms in  the  Dominion.    Our stock  consists of
Clothing, Gent's Furnishings, Hats, Boots, Shoes,

for upwaids of 90,000,000 tons of raw
material under contracts running for
Bevernl yeais Millons of dollars are
Involved io the deals. Hiuce the organization of the United Slides Steel

ahle talk about that organization buying the property of the outside mines.
Accordingly the Independent furnace

ahovc. In some cases the prices have
been fixed and the Mcsaba ores will
he hoses on this year's figures. The
