Manager Pool cf the Nettle L.
Mine Tells of the New
Free Milling Gold Properties
Attracting Much Attention.
F, 1!. Poole, manager of the   Nettie
L.   and   Double   Eagle mines  in   the
Lanleau distriot,was in town   yesterday, lie says that business is decidedly brisk  in   the  Lardeau  anil   many
new properties are being opened up us
rapidly us is possible,despite the great
drawbacks  yet  existing from luck of
transportation  fabilities, On the Net-
tii- _. shipir.cnts  have   almost  ceased
tor tlits season, as the   snow on which
the ore is rnwhlded   down the  mountain is   almost   gone.    Since January
1st the company estimate   that   1,000
tuns nf ore havo been   taken   out   and
shlppnd   to   the  Trail   smelter.    Mr.
Pool*, has formed a new mining   company called the Ophir-Lade  syndicate
composed mainly   of   Revelstoke  aid
Calgary   people   to handle   tlie   Lade
group of claims, the ore of which ear
ries high values in free milling   gold,
also Jof   tellurule.    It   is  situated on
Gainer  creek, ahout 12 miles  up   the
south fork of the Lardeau.    Mr. Poole
said that although there   were  many
extremely^ rich   silver-lead; mines  in
llie  Lardeau,   yet   with   the   present
eoiidtion of the metal market   it  was
almost impossible to handle suoh properties to advantage,   and   so  many of
tlie   silver-lead   mine     owners   v;ere
tinning their attention largely   to the
wonderful  froe  gold   discoveries that
have been mado lately in   tlie district.
The Ophir-Lude   group   comprises five
claims on which there are six true fissure veins, crosscutting the formation.
The   veins   average from 18 inches to
five feet in width   and the values   run
from one ounce to 100 ounces   per toll.
Ton   men   are at present ut   woik   on
the property and are engaged   in running a crosscut, tunnel which   is   now
in Ilia feet. It has still -.5 or 30 feet to
be cut yet, when it will tap  the   vein
at a depth of 00 feet.    After the property is thoroughly tested it is tho   intention   of   the   company to   erect  a
mill, if poBsiblo this fall.
More men will be put to work as
soon ns they can be used to advantage.
On an adjoining olatratothe KulHed
Grouse, a very rich diBcovery has been
made of galena, and grey copper ore,
the values of which are so high that it
is being packed out, although the wagon road is yet a mile distant. On the
White Warren and Old Gold properties, both silver-lead, considerable development work is being done.
On the Triune group, a silver-lead
property carrying largo villus in cop-
par, belonging to Ferguson Bros.,
ahout eight miles from the town of
Ferguson, the owners have succes-
fully developed a ��ery promising
mine in the face of many great diffl
cullies. The coinpany oparationg the
Silver Cup intend running a long
tunnel and will eommenoe shipping
as soon as the snow comes again to
allow of rawhiding the ore down.
They have already large blocks of oro
sloped out and when the railway
reaches this point the property will
likely  prove a good shipper.
Mr. Poole said that so many properties in that district had working
bonds on them this season that it
would be impotsible to specify them,
also that a great many speculators
were up there at present, Camborne
W-s one of the busiest points in the
district at present a large number of'
mining men making it '.heir headquarters. Mr. Poole leaves this morning for Spokane over the Nelson &
l'ort Sheppard line and will be back
to Nelson in about a week.

Cronberg, Ang. 8.��� The funeral service held at Freidriohoff late today was
simple but highly impressive. It was
performed nt the request of the late

It discussed the schemes tor a revision
of the Berne convention, and decided
to immediately commence the elaboration of what is hoped will prove an
idcalj'.-onvoiiUon, embodying all the

Victoria, B.C., Aug. 8.���Peter'Jackson, ex-champion pugilist, died on
July 3(1 at a private sanitarium at Bo-
mo, near Sydney, N. S. W., of con
sumption. ,
Two men who have attracted a good
deal of attention on Baker street tbe
last couple of days are the Re.. Mr.
Coleman, of the Presbyterian Board
of Foreign Missions, and Ng Monhing, a native Chinese preacher, wbo
will labor among the Chinese of tho
Kootenays, making Nelson his headquarters. Mr. Coleman stated that it
was nine years sinoe his church had
taken up the work of trying to reach
the Chinese in Canada. At the present timo there are 30 baptized Chinamen belonging to the Presbyterian
churches in Vancouver, and others at
various other points, while the other
denominations also hao more or less
Chinese converts attending their
churches. Nearly all of these, however, are in the Coast cities, and this
is among the fiist attempts to evangelize the Chinese of the   interior.
At a conference which was held four
years ago in Victoria it was decided
that the Presbyterian church should
support two Chinese, sending one to
college in China, and the other as a
worker among his own-people in the
Coast, cities. This was done, and a
native convert who had been a member of the church in China for nine
years was appointed to look after the
work at Vancouver, while a promising
young man was sent out to the Presbyterian college in China. Tbe latter
completed his course a short time ago
and will now look after the Coast
missions, while Ng Monhing was
transferred to Nelson, which was the
point selected as the best center for
the work. Mr. Coleman was appointed to come with him to make arrangements and introduce htm to the local
churches, he being a missionary of
great experience among the Chinese,
having Bpent nine years in China, and
for the paBt eight years having looked
after Chinese missions in thc various
places in Canada and the States nnder
the jurisdiction of the Board of Foreign missions He will visit Kaslo,
Rossland, and other townB of the Kootenays before he returns to the coast,
arranging for services to be held
there by Ng Monhing. The latter will
visit the Chinese in their work places,
and will hold public services as well
whenever possible. He will he supported financially by the Board of
Foieign Missions, but the board hope
that he will receive srnypathy and
support from all members of the various churches who are intereseted in
the work ho has undertaken. He is
apparently a very intelligent and earnest man, and although not very familiar with the English language yet
can carry on a conversation in it very

How Large Estimates Were Rushed
Through House of Commons.
London, Aug. 8.���At 1 o'clock last
night, in a crowded and; exciting session of tbejHouso of Commons, Mr.
Balfour's new rule of voting estimates by wholesale closjire came into
operation. Lumped in "clasaes" more
than ��07,00,000 were by this scheme
voted in a series of divisions before
1 o'clock this morning, the Government majorities always exceeding
100. The House was still in session at a a. tn. The Irish members-engaged in obstructive tactics with reference to various resolutions incidental to the final stages of the estimates and Mr. Chamberlain frequently

Vancouver, 11. C, Aug. 8. -Some of
the consuls in Hritish Columbia aro np
in arms because it has neen announced that they are merely commercial
agents tor their respective Governments and consequently there will be
no placo for them in the reception to
the Duko of York to be held here October 1st. Tho countries represented
here are the United States, Fran.e,
Germany, Spain, Chili, Japan, Norway
nnd Sweden, Ecquador, Italy, and a
number of small republics. The
consuls for the United States, France
and Japan are under salary, thc rest
depend on the dignity of their position and are engaged in mercantile
pursuits. Some of thc consuls have
met and placed themselves in communication with the authorities, presumably to endeavor to get themselves
properly recognized by royalty. Colonel Dudley of the United States,
however, and Huron St. Laurient of
France are holding themselves aloof.
They say they have no'opinion to expresses lo the action of the authorities in ignoring them or declaring
thein mercantile agents; that if they
are invited to meet the Duko of York
they will be pleased to do so as representatives of their countries but they
niu i be invited formally or they will
take no part. It is understood that
the Ottawa Government in their de-
li'iiinn havo cabled tho King asking
his advice in the matter.
A very strange case of mistaken
identity has occurred on Lulu Island.
British Columbia. J, II. Conner, of
Vancouver, and Arthur Farrand of Seattle were working in a hay field this
week on a very hot day and Connor,
being overcome with heat, walked
away and laid down in the woods. In
the cool of the evening Farrand picked up Conner's coat and as it was a
good one, left, his own and started
homo wearing Conner's coat Before
lie reached home he dropped dead from
heart failure. Hja body was found
before it was cold and the coat he had
on examined for the purpose of ascertaining who he was. Letters were
found addressed to J. II. Conners and
next day the papers announced Conner's death and that he was about to
be buried in the pauper's plot. In
the meantime Conner had recovered
and read the: paper announcing his
sudden death. He hastened to the undertaker's aa the funeral was moving
from the place and not wishing to
create a disturbance attended the funeral. Next day he quietly informed the
undertaker that he was I'ot dead;
that the dead man was a prominent
labor unionist of Seattle, Wash. This
proved to he correct and the remains
of Arthur Farrand were taken from
the grave, embalmed and sent to relatives.

Baloon Badly Damaged but
Will Be Repaired and
Used Again.
San Franc'mco, Cal., Aug. 8.���Captain Seymour of th�� local detective
forco has disclosed the identity of the
man whom the police have in custody
on suspicion of being implicated in the
robbery of 8283,000 worth ot gold bullion from the Selby Bmelter works at
Vallejo. Tho suspect is John Winters, 87 years old, a former employee
of the smelting company. Capt. Seymour's outline of thu evidence on
which Winters is being held says:
"The cover of tho tunnel excavated by
the thieves was Constructed of laths
upon which some clothes were fastened with tacks of a peculiar pattern
and taeks similar to the.e were found
today in Winter's cabin. Portions of
laths similar to those composing the
framework of the cabin have also
been found. A pistol owned by Winters and found in his cabin is co\ered
with mud whicli corresponds with the
earth taken from the tunnel. In the
tunnel were found several cubes of pe-
ouliar chalk which had evidently been
used to smother the grinding sound
made by the drill by which the floor
plate of the vault had been bored and
pieces of chalk like them were discovered in Winter's residence. Winters,
however, stoutly maintains that he
knows nothing whatever of the robbery."

who has made several attempts to win
the large prize offered to the first,
aeronaut who could successfully navigate a balloon around the Eiffel tower
made an unsuccessful ascent today and
narrowly escaped death through tlio
bursting of his balloon. M. Santos
Dumont. gave the following account of
histrip: "This time it is not the fault
of tin- motor, which worked admirably, it was the balloon which caused
the accident. I rounded the Eiffel
tower with admirable Bpeed, lis I had
a favorable wind and was already reluming over the Bois de Boulogne
when the'wind freshened Suddenly
and struok me sideways. Like a ship
in a storm the balloon pitched and
rolled, now and then recovering its
normal position. Another sudden
veering of the wind caused the front,
of the balloon to pitch downwards and
the ropes connecting it with the frame
caught in the propel lor which struck
the wires. They broke and 1 saw the
danger, and my only thought waB to
descend as quickly as possible. This
I was doing successfully but I was
driven by a contrary wind in tlie direction of the Eiffel tower. Agnin
the breeze veered and threw me against
a building The balloon burst like a
toy gas balloon and the fragments fell
completely covering me. The rest
yon know. 1 am unhurt. Not a
soratch. I will soou recommence.
Tho motor is uninjured. I have
worked it for ten minutes. I will now
scud it to St. Cloud and set to work
repairing the balloon. It is simply a
matter of sewing the pieces together.
The cause of the accident was that
the balloon was insufficiently filled, 1
knew this. The ventilator also worked badly."
M. Deutsiche, who was present at tho
start, shed tears when lie saw the balloon falling. In an inter flew, after
highly praising tlie courage antl skill
of M. Santos Dumont, he said: "1 am
afraid the experiments will not bo
continued as his balloon will always
be at the mercy of the wind which Is
not the kind of air ship we havo
dreamed of."
The aeronaut attributes his osoape
to a medal of St. Bernet presented to
him by the countess D'Eua tbo other
day on the occasion of one of his as-
conts. Tho medal he wears attached
to a bracelet on his Wrist. When M.
Santos Dumont refened tc his belief,
he kissed the m.dal.
Washington, Aug. 8.--The annual
port of Major General MiicArthur to
July 4,l!iol, the_day he relinquished
command of the division of the Philippines,has been leceived at the war department. The period covered by tho
report is from October 1000, when the
last ieport from Oeneral MnoArthur
was dat ad. He r.views tho policy of
the Filipinos who weio hostile to tho
Americans aaying that tbeir action
since the practical collapse of the insurrection has been a perplexing problem. With the disbandment of tho
insurgent field armies, thc Filipinos
organized desperate resistance by
banding the people together in support
of the guerillas. This waa carried out
by means of committees who collected
contributions, inflicting punishment
if donations were refused, and carried
on a considerable opposition toj tho
Americans. General MitcArlhui says
that the proclamation issued on December 30th, firmly dcclaiing the intention of thc United States to hold
the islands and to have tlie laws observed, hai a good effeot and thc secret
resistance was rnnch abated, A considerable proportion of the report ia

Smoke from forest fires obscures the
atmosphere   and   during  the   present
open season tbo usual annual deslruc
tion of rn'Uions oi   dollars   worth   of
timber will take place   The timbci ou
the mountain sides and in the   valleys
is one of the   valuable   assets   of  tlie
province   and   yet    but little   care   il
taken to protect it from 'icing consum
ed.      Campers   are careless   about ex
tingnishing the liies which they build
for cooking and from   the smoldering
embers  of  camp   fires  conflagrations
are started which last for   weeks   and
spread   over    large   areas    destroyin;
not only the   trees but also   buildings
that lie in the   paths   which   Ihe   tiro
mows.    Settlers   start   fires     for   tho
purpose   of   clearing    land and   them
are   tboughluBSly   allowed   to   spread
and despoil a country side of  its   tim
bor.    Spark,   from     locomotives    set
the   underbrush   along rights  of way
ablaze and much timber   is   destroyed
in this manner.
In tins way the quantity of limber
is rapidly decreasing and if the dimin
utioii is allowed to continue it will
become scarce iu the places where
is most needed, in tho vicinity of
the mines and towns of the Koote
nays. Tbrera is such a wealth of
timber in British Columbia thut people generally do not look on the destruction of many thousand acres annual ly as any great loss.
Timber is growing scarco on this
continent and considerable of the lumber used in the Linitert States is now
brought from Canada, It will not be
many years before every acre of timber limits in British Columbia will
be twice as valuable as it is at present, and hence there is great necessity for protecting it from destruction. In order to do this the laws for
the protection of thc forest should be
better enforced. During the dry
season a few special constables whose
sole business should bo to look after
the timber should bo appointed and
they should arrest aud aid in convicting
offenders. A few convictions would
inspire a more wholesome respect for
the law and would result in the preservation of the trees to the great future good of the commonwealth.
Iho pnpers all over the country are
commenting unfavorably on the rough
manner in which lacrosse is played
and on the number of players injured.
If the belligerency and sometimes
savagery of the players is allowed to
increase it will be absolutely necessary fur each player to be accompanied by a Burgeon, as was the custom
in tlio old days when personal disputes were settled on the so-called
Meld or honor,
The writer witnessed ono lacrosse
game during the present season in
which four of the players were severely injured and two of them
required the services of surgeons.
The average eiti/en does not patronize Incrosso for the purpose of seeing the players wounded and is so
much displeased when this is wantonly done tbat after witnessing an c.\-
bihtion or two of thc kind he cuts
the garni- from tho list of those whicli
he attends. The punishment foi
wounding a player, usually inflicted,
is to rotire the aggressor to tha
benches for ti v or ten minutes, when,
in some.cases, ho should be sent, to
jail for maliciously in tiding severe
bodily injury. No ono believes it
posHiblo to avoid injuries which may
bo involunturily indicted in the heat
and excitement of play, but the deliberate wounding of players can be
avoided and for the sake of Iho future
of so splendid a game it should be
To prevent, as much as possible, foul
playing the umpire's powers should
be enlarged so that be could impose
heavier pur alties. in addition to this
the elnbs should ostracise those who
habitually engage in unfair and over
rough tactics, and in this way a stigma will be removed front tbe game, it
will be restored to its old time glory
and will deserve the appellation of
Canada's national game.

investors in the venture, in order to
protect himself, insisted that Mr.
King go with the alleged discoverer
to the scene of the reported find and
once there the latter began to pick
up tlio uncut diamonds with which
he had previously salted tne ground.
Mr. King asked him dryly how long
since ho had placed them there as
diamonds, he declared, had never beon
found in thc formation peculiar to
that section. Thus was the diamond
swindle exposed and the further defrauding of a number of people prevented.
Within the past ten days there havo
been three holdups in tho Kootenays,
ono on tho Toad, leading from
Hosslnnd to Northport, the Second at Sirdar, and the third at Moyie.
Crimes of tbis sort have been so infrequent in this suotion ever since it
was settled thnt pi-oplo had no fear
whatever of footpads and highwaymen, either in tho settlements or out
in the mountains. In tho cities and
towns men, wonion and children felt
as secure on tho streets at midnight as
they did at midduy. This feeling of
security it is not desirable to lose, as
it constitutes one of tho attractive
features of living here. When a member of a family waB down town or
away on a journey in the mountains
no apprehension has hitherto boehfelt
that they would como to harm at the
hands i,f reckless marauders. It is
loslrable, therefore, that the calling
of thi. highwayman bo made an undesirable as possible and that
holdups should bo stamped out by tho
iron heel of the law With this cud
in view the officers of the law should
spare no pains nor cost to hunt down
and bring to justice the perpetrators
of the recent holdups.
these is to be devoted to a display of
the minerals of British Columbia and
Washington. The Nelson division
should have a comprehensive collection of minerals on dispay at the
fair, lt is a good way in which to
advertise tin- resources of this section,
and it is only by constant advertising
that capital, which is needed to develop our prospects into mines, can be
induced to come in this direction,
Who will start the work of collecting
the minerals for the .Spokano fair?

url; iu Nelson these days. Tho
man's   fancy,   whicli   in   the
lightly tuniB to   thoughts
has now worked round to Unit
which lias probably more
until r
bora i
gentle art
followed than Cupid can boust of. And
;!������ young men are not tho only ones
wuU mil attracted to the fascinating
pursuit of tho lusty trout, which kind
has placed in such largo nuni-

mountain citv. Yonng ladies Hnd the

��� U'ultous," who tempt the wary trout
from his native element with aa much
success as they of course have when
"casting" after a man. And old men
n���d old ladies (we beg pardon) are
among the most ardent devotees of the
rt in Nelson, and it is uot au ungual sight to see "la and Ma and the
family'' leaving for an outing on tho
hike with a full outfit of tackle and
n lunch basket that weighs moro
than the Bsh they are likely to catob.
And nationality has apparently nothing to do with thc desire to oatch
flab, The expert, with tho five guinea
split bamboo rod, double multiplying
red, double tapered silk line, select
casts, and tho finest lot of Hies obtainable, while 011 his way to the
rapids below Nelson, will pass
Swedes, Italians, Doukhobors aud
Chinamen at the jutting rocks along
the route, each with a rod of nature's
own construction, a piece of twine,
three hooks, and a liberal supply of
And his CHtch of "squfcw" fish often
means more to bim tnan the basket
of silvery trout to the expert, us lt
supplies a vaiiety which is sadly lacking in his usual bill of fare.
Well now, if we have decided to go
fishing, whero can we tind a likely
spot'.' And this is whero the dilliculty
comes in, for with hundreds of excellent, spots all around it is hard for
even two people to agree upon the objective point.
One is sure to have seen several big
lish. at least five pounds each, rising
just over the lake below Hoover's,
while tbe other remembers a splendid
bite he had a few days before up tbe
river just above the new ship yards
and he has a sneaking idea that the
..uno fish is still 1-ioking for his particular bait, and ho is extremely anx
ious to bavo another "crack" at hiin.
After discussing the matter for
awhile, a brilliant idea strikes them,
namely, that they can try both spots
on the same trip,and away they go, to
find, probably, that the five pounders
aio away on a vacation, and the
"bite" near the ship yards turn out
to have been a large hunch of weed
on the shoal at that po'nt.
Olio of the world's best, fishing spots
is  within a few miles of Nolson,   and
nearly every day during   tho   summer
mrnths some disciple of   Isaac Walton
is casting his  (lies over   the   rushing,
tossing   waters   at  Ward's  Crossing,
where nature has  provided   an   ideal
resting spot and   feeding   ground  fo:
tlie  trout   on   their   journey   up   the
magnificent Kootenay river.   Here tho
trout rest  after   their     weary    run
through tbe many rapids and swirling
waters   between   Robson   and   Slocan
Junction, and   gain strength   for   the
apparently hopeless task of   mounting
the mighty stream which at Ronning-
ton JFalls dashes  over   rugged   rocks
nnd churns the water into fleecy foam.
At. this point   the   trout   usually feed
in the morning   from   daylight   until
about   ten   o'clock,   and again in the
evening from five o'clock until   dark.
Some remarkably fine baskets are taken during the season, and it iR   probably the best spot along the river   for
an exoert fisherman to enjoy   himsolf,
though   this year tbe fishing  has  not
yet been at   its best.    The  fishing   at
thia point  is   nearly all done from  a
hoat, which   can   be procured   on the
spot,together with a guide to row and
pick out the likely spots for   casting.
Above   Bonnington   Falls there are
several good spot's where a fair  catch
ot fish is generally the reward of   the
enthusiastic angler. At lieasley siding
some of the largest fish takon this year
have   been   caught, but the bait  used
must, be   either locusts,   minnows,   or
other   natural   baits   us   the fish  aro
never very anxious to taste flies offered.   Along  the shore from   Beasley's
siding to   Nelson   are many   spelndid
pools and rapids where trout are fairly
plentiful, hut   they   are fished for   so
much   that   it   is   extremely   hard to
palm off an artificial fly, even though
perfectly tied,on the educated denizens
of the water.    One will often see  fish
after fish rise gracefully until   within
a few inohes of the fly whioh we thifik
will Jool any fish, and   then turn tail
and make   for   deeper water until his
quick eye detects a genuine fly,   when
as quick as a Hash, without any hesitation whatever, he   rises   and   takes
It is very aggravating to see this repeated time after time right beside
your own Hies, but patience is tbe
fisherman's greatest virtue, and you
ciist.ohange tiles and oust again in the
hope of fooling some of the inquisitive
or hungry trout.
At tlie mouths ot the creeks along
the river the trout seem to gather In
large numbers to feed on tbe Hies,
ants, and othoi food which bus escaped tbe quick eye of the biook trout in
the st renins.
The variety of files used along the
river below Nelson varies with the
time of day,and tbe change of seasou.
and tho only safo method for a fisherman is to take a large variety of pat-
torn, and keep changing them on tho
oast uutil a combination is etlected
which proves to be killing. In the
vicinity of Nelson the best spot for fly
casting is undoubtedly the buy be
low the C. P. R.wharf, whero thu bottom of thc river suddenly shallows,
forcing the water into numerous eddies and ripples, where thc trout love
to feed after sun down. At this point
some Hue fish have been caught this
summer apd it is a favorite Bpot, as a
short row brings one to the place and
tho boat will drift around in tho eddies while you are placing your flies
all around in likely spots.
The trolling in the lako around Nel
son has heen very good this year and
many line lish have been caught. The
best bait for this fishing is a new double spoon troll called the "Tacoma
bait" which is very killing. Above
Nelson tbe fishing is not a good until
the creeks running into tho main lake
are reached.
At. the mouths of Midge, Cultus,
Canyon, aud .Wilson creeks, the best
catches of trout this year havo been
made, and a person in search of good
fishing has only to reach one of these
spots to lie sure Of a line basket of
Thc C. P. R. boats Moyie and Nelson, will land passengers right at the
fishing spot about daylight, and oall
again on the homeward bound trip at
7 or 8 in thc evening, giving time for
tho morning and ovening fishing antl a
good rest during the heat of the day.
It is necessary to take a bont on this
trip as the best fishing ground is out
in the lake several hundred feet
where the creek water meets the deep
water of thc lake. Mr. T. G. Procter's
houseboat is anchored at the mouth of
Midge creek and alfords good accommodation for fishing tourists
For brook trout the enthusiastic angler has to go futhor from civilization, hut the beautiful scenery and
splendid fishing amply repay tho labor involved in reaching the spits.
Kokanee creek is a very easy creek to
fish and a novice can dasily land from
30 to 50 of the small brook trout in a
day's fishing All the creeks running
into the lake contain trout, but probably the easiest place in the Kootenay
to make a big eatoh is in tho Summit
lakes at the head ot Six Mile creek
where baskets of 100 to 200 for each
person are not nnusual.
With the many splendid fishing
spots available, some of which have
been noted above, Nelson will undoubtedly be the Mecca of anglers
from many parts of the west, and in
the near future we may expect to have
our city known far and wide as the
centre of one of the world's famous
fishing grounds.

"I was walking down street when a
man   who   bad   pointed out to-ne  as
United   States   Deputy    Marshal   Ide
came up to me and said:
" 'Are you Mr. Wilks'."
" '1 am,' said I.
" 'Is your   first   name   James.''   be
" 'Yes sir,' I replied,
" 'Have you any other given name'.''
was the next query.
" 'No sir.' I replied.
" 'Well, Mr. Wilks,   here is an   injunction "i am   instructed  to serve   on
you,' said the marshal.
���' 'Thank you,' I said.
" 'Pray don't mention it,'   responded the marshal.
" 'You have the distinction,' I   snid
to Mr. Ide,'of being the liist officer of
the   law to serve a paper   on me.'
" 'Is that so'." replied   tlie  marshal,
'Well, I hope I'll be the last.'
" 'So do I,' said   1.   and   tho   inci
dent ended."
"I am go'ng to Noitbport again today to see Mr. Murphy, and am not
afraid of tbe injunction." concluded
the vice president of the W. F. M.
"I believe the injunction will do us
more good than harm, for it will
serve to keep down the hotheads."
