Gunn Brothers Tell of Development in the
Lardeau District-Mining News
From Other Portions of
the District.
Robert Gunn and Arthur Gunn,mining men who are interested in the
Lardeau district, have just arrived in
the City. M.r R. Gunn states that
the mining prospects of that district
are brighter now than they have been
during any time in the history of
tho district. The principal group in
���which he is interested is the Luke
group consisting of five claims situated at the head of Gainer Creek. It
is a gold proposition and the ore is
high grade. A picued sample gave
returns of 8140 per ton. Already 120
feet of ft cross cut tunnel haB been
run to tap the ledge at a depth of 86
feet. The ledge is in some places 2S
feet wide. On this pioperty work
has been stopped for this season but at
an early date in the spring further
and^more extensive development will
be resumed. The Gunn brothers also
had a leas* on the Triune group situated near the Silver Cup mine and
about eight railea from Ferguson.
Considerable development has been
done and a trial shipment of 100 tons
has been made and it gave a net return of over 8700. This shipment
was taken out during the development
at 100 feet. Their lease has just expired but they still have about 40 tons
to ship.
The iProperty is now controlled by
the Ferguson brothers and in the
spring they will proceed with further
development. The development of
this property consists of about 100
feet of tunnelling and some stoplng.
The Cromwell, or better known as the
"Skyscraper," is on the same gold
belt as the Triune, and was located
late last summer. Very little development on this has been done and a
���mall shipment of seven tons of ore
which was entirely taken from
the surface, was shipped and
good returns were obtained. The
principal owners are James Grant and
Edward Morgan. A large force of men
will be put to work on the property
next summer. Near the above claim
is situtated the Fiee Coinage and
the Silver Cup group. The latter during development has shipped about
250 tona of high grade silver and copper ore. More work has been done on
this property than any other iu tho
district. A large quantity of ore is
already blocked ont and further shipments will be made. Considerable
tunneling and also a large amount of
drifting has been done on the
ledges. Three ledges of considerable
width have been discovered. Nearby
is situated the Towser claim which
was owned by David Ferguson and
Jack Knowles, but last fall it was
bonded to a Chicago company. Development work is now being pushed
rapidly and the property is showing
up well.
About one and a half miles from
Ferguson is situated the Nettie L.
group, which Is now being developed
by a force of about 30 men. If everything continues favorable the company
will ship about 1,000 tons during the
winter. High assays have been obtained from this as the belt contains
bigh grade silver and gray copper ore.
Mr. H. Godsal of Calgary, is one of
the principal owners and the manager
of the company is William Pool of
Revelstoke. Near by is situated the
Idle Hour group, worked by the owners, J. A. Ward and J. Kirkpatrlck of
Ferguson. A crosscut tunnel is being
run to tap the ledge which has been
found to be 20 feet wide. Samples
from the ledge have given assays of
���10 to 800 in gold. Work will be continued this season.
Throughout the district there aro
numerous other prospects which it is
expected will be developed during the
coming year.
���   ���   ���
Mr. Frank Fulmer of Trout Lake
City, is in the City for a few days.
He is interested in several properties
at Trout Lake, and thinks that the
outlook for the district is exceedingly
favorable. Although this is an old
district it hns been retarded in its de
velopment owing to cost of transport
ation. Mr. Fulmer is one of the loca
tors of the Beatrice, Ottawa, Payne
and Cariboo claims, high grade silver
and leud properties. One of the principal groups in the Trout Lake district is the Klondike group. The
owners of this are Messrs. Murray and
Johnson. About 200 feet of tunneling
has been done and at present a large
body of high grade silver and lead
ore is in sight. As soon as the weather will permit a large force of men
will be put to work. A trail from
the Trout Lake wagon road to the
property, a distance of three miles
has just been completed. Comfortable
cabins at the mine have been erected
and now everything is in readiness for
further development. Adjoining this
are the very promising properties,
Dewey and Cariboo, which are situated ou the same ledge. Mr. Crouthers
is the owner of the Dewey and George
Young is the owner of the Cariboo.

WRECKED ON A REEF.
Steamer Iaqua Goes to Pieces Outside
the Golden Gate.
San Francisco, Cal., Jan. 5.���The
Steamer Iaqua, which left this city
yesterday afternoon for San Diego
with a cargo of general merchandise,
was wrecked some time last night on
Duxbury reef just outside the Golden
Qate, and all on board with the single exception of Chief Engineer Bur-
rill are believed to have perished.
Ilurrill was washed ashore on an overturned boat after being in the water
for two hours. There were between
thirty and forty persons on board.
The Iaqua sailed from Eureka several
days ago for San Pedro and put in
here yesterday to land some passengers. As soon as that duty had been
attended to Capt. Basoh put to sea
again. How the engineer got ashoie
no one seemed to know and it thus appeared possible that others from the
wreck might have reached points of
safety unreported.
ANOTHER HILL DEAL.
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul
Road Passes Into His Hands.
Chicago, Jan. 5.���The Chronicle today says President Albert J. Earling,
of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St.
Paul Railway yesterday sold his 30,-
000 shares ot stock in the road. The
line has passed into the control of J.
J. Hill, J. Plerpont Morgan and
John D. Rockefeller. Today Mr.
Earling enjoys the distinction   of be
ing president and general manager of
a company in which he does not own
a single share of stock. He has made
a profit of 8840,000 on his stock and
does not know whether he is to he retained in an official capacity by the
new management. Earling wae not
the only big dealer to part with his
stock. Marshall Field is reported to
have disposed of his stock amounting
to three million. The Alexander
Mitchell estate parted with two million and the heirs of the late George
T. Smith are said to have disposed
of five million more. Earling's stock
was sold for 83,040,000 going off at
8152 a share. The total purchases
made yesterday by the Hill interests
are reported to be in excess of 815,-
000,000.
WORK OF A BRUTE.
Terrible Crime Committed in an Ohio
Village.
Marcetta, Ohio., Jan. 5.���One of the
most brutal crimes was committed
yesterday evening at Hackney, Morgan
County, by which Miss Nellie Morris,
aged 19, handsome and accomplished,
lost her life. Miss Morris was returning home from the postoffice by the
way of a path through the fields. She
was accosted by Walter A. Weinstock,
a young man aged 19 years, who lived
near her home. He made indecent
proposals to her and she immediately
started to run. He grabbed her and
threw her to the ground. She screamed and fought hard, finally getting to
her feet. Weinstock drew a razor
from his pocket and cut her across tbe
neck, severing the neck muscles and
laying bare the jugular vein. Miss
Morris grabbed the razor and ber
hands were cut into pieces in her mad
attempt to rescue herself from the
man. Her fingers were cut off and
ber wrist badly cut as well as her entire right arm and left arm badly disfigured. She died from the effects of
her wounds shortly after the assault.
Weinstock was grabbed by a erowd
who bound him with ropes, hand and
foot uwl removed linn to a building
where more than fifteen hundred meat]
went with him. A telephone message
was sent for officers to come and get
him but the people were getting ready
to start for Marcetta at 10 o'clock with
their man and place bim in jail. There
is talk of lynching him and as late as
11 o'clock tonight the people of Hackney were all up and a mob was being
organized to hang Weinstook.

PLAGUE AT VLADIVOSTOCK.
London, Jan. 5.���The reports of an
outbreak of the pluage at Vladivo-
stock are confirmd. There have been
IU cases, out of which 15 have been
fatal. Plague patints are still in

TO CUT DOWN EXPENSES.
Toronto, Jan, 5.���The Ontario Government has granted leave of absence
to Dr.Clarke,of the Rockwood Asylum,
Kingston, at the request of the British Columbia Government in onbr to
enable bim to investigate tbe workings of the Provincial Asylum at
Westminster with tbe object of curtailing the expenses of that institution.
A report reached Nelson last night
that the Payne mine had closed down
on account of its inability to find a
market for its ores. As the story
went the Ameiican smelters have refused to purchase any more British
Columbia dres and the local smelters
were so busy that tbey could not take
any more ore. Inquiry at the local
smelter elicited the fact tbat last
month Payne ore was treated here and
that there was no reason in tbe world
to believe that there would not be
shipments received this month.
The Miner further wired the Payne
Mining Company, and this afternoon
received the following reply.
"Sandon, B. C, Jan. 5.���Report  is
false regarding Payne closing   down.
"W. E. ZWICKY,
"Manager."
The spreading of these alarmist reports by newspapers which do not
take the trouble to see if they are correct is severely condemned by mining
men.

was nothing there worth the while
and came away. Afterward the 'ten-
derfeet' came along and opened the
district with great results.
"Between 0000 and 7000 men are wintering at Nome and doing what work
they can. The general health at Nome
has been excellent. The run of typhoid in 1899 led everyone to believe
that disease would again be prevalent, but the deaths were exceedingly
rare this year. There were a good
many fights over territory rights early
in the season, but things have settled
down now. Judge Stevens sits in
criminal casus, and Judge Noyce is
district judge. Both are doing excellent work."
FROM   KITCHENER.
MIXED MARRIAGES.
Read  in
Circular  Opposing    Them
Catholic Churches.
Ottawa, Jan. 5.���In the Catholic
churches last Sunday, a circular letter
from tbe Archbishop was read, which
contained an important reference to
the subject of mixed marriages. According to the regulations of the
church the Archbishop is compelled to
report every five years to Rome regarding the number of mixed marriages'in his diocese. To one of such
reports His Grace recently received a
reply from the Secretary of the Propaganda, in which tne following reference to the diocese of Ottawa is
made:
"We have learned with a great
deal of regret that marriages between
Catholics and non-Catholics are becoming more frequent in your diocese.
Your Grace and your clergy well understand that these marriages, allowed only with the regret of the Catholic Church, are entirely in contradiction of her discipline, and constitute
a relaxation of that lively faith which j
should everywhere prevail."
Alluding to this matter, Archbis
hop Duhamel Instructs his clergy to
see that the regulations of the Church
regarding such marriages are read
at least once a year in all churches of
the diocese.
Last Dispatch From the Commander
Has Nothing Exciting.
London. Jan. 5.���Lord Kitchener
reports to the War Office under date
of Pretoria, January 4, as follows:
"The Boers have appeared along the
railway in the neighborhood of Rhe-
noster, but it is doubtful that Dewet
is with them. With regard to the sit-
uaton,in Cape Colony, the western
commando seems to be making toward
Calvin and the eastern party appears
to have broken up into small parties.
Another small body crossed the Orange
River west of Aliwall North yesterday."

Jan. 4.���On tbe arrival of the German
steamer Hoertzog at Beira, with 136
Abysslans and Somalia for the Rhode-
sian mines, the "boys," as tbey are
called, were informed by the foreman
that they would be compelled to work

go ashore. Portuguese police and
troops were summoned, and a big fight
ensued. The "boys" barricading

friends of Aid. Irvine will not allow
him to drop out of the Council. He

ALASKA'S GOLD OUTPUT.
Fully
Seattle Man Says It Will Be
Fifteen Millions.
New York, Jan. 5.���"The output
of the Alaska gold fields for 1901 will
be fully 815,000,000," said Lyman S.
Ailes of Seattle, who left Nome City
on October 25, at the Waldorf-Astoria
last night. "Alaska will soon be to
the United States what South Africa
is to England," he continued. "One
ot the vexatious things which the
miners had to contend with this year
was the interminable squabbles over
claims. The overflow of miners from
the Klondike struck us last spring and
settled on claims already staked. In
some cases they would rename the
creeks and drive new stakes, and the
original owners have been fighting
thousands of these cases In the courts
all year. The gold output for 1900
would have been much larger but for
this.
'The beach claims at and near
Nome have been worked out, but back
on the creeks there is an unlimited
amount of gold. I have a good claim
on Oregon Creek, 25 miles from Nome
and 20 miles back from the coast. The
latest strikes have been made near
Kotzebue Sound. The Blue Stone
Creek district has opened with a rush.
One of the peculiar features about
Blue Stone is tbat it was discovered

London, Jan. 5.���The stories in the

fancy dress carnival in the skating
rink next Wednesday evening. Prizes

HOCKEY  PRACTICE.
Nelson PlayerB Out Last Night���Notes
on the Game.
Last night the liveliest practice of
the season was held by the local
hockey players, two scratch teams
being selected and a game being played. The fusion of the two City teams
will result in a strong seven representing the City against outside tennis.
The first outside game will take place
at Sandon on the 10th und the Nelson team is liable to run up against
one of the Rossland teams. Sandon is
high enough up to be assured of good
ice and the games should be fast ones.
There Is supposed to be a hockey association in existence In the Koote
nay, but nothing has been heard of it
this season. It will probably be allowed to drop out of existence and all
the matches played will be those arranged between the different teams.
The result of the games at the Rossland Carnival will likely decide the
nominal championship.
| Forward Step Taken by Citizen's Committee of Sloean City.
Sloean City, Jan. 4.���Incorporation
matters are in a forward state and
the details are being rapidly arranged. A. York,one of the citizen's committee, was in Nelson last week, and
while there engaged Messrs, Taylor
& Hannington, a leading firm of barristers in that city, to take charge of
the scheme and draft the necessary
papers for presentation to the Legislature at its next session. Victoria lawyers had at first been written to, bat
they were too tardy in answering.
The Nelson men strongly urge the
town to incorporate as a city, because
of the extra advantages to be derived.
Tbey are sending up instructions to
the committee to govern the preliminaries, and in a few days a public
meeting will be called and everything
laid before the citizens. It is hoped
to have the whole thing arranged and
in order by March 1. John Houston
and R. F. Green, M. L. A. 's, will
father the scheme before the Legislature. All outside business and financial circles commend tbe citizens for
their action in seeking the incorporation of the town.
Rossland and Boundary teams are
hard at work practicing and looking
for games with outside teams. If the
Nelson club is going to induce an
outside team to visit here no time
should be lost as the present cold snBp
Is not a permanent institution.
The matches for the hockey championship of the World will be held at
Montreal during the week commencing January 38th. The Shamrocks,
present holderB of the Stanley Cup,
will again be lined up against the
Winnipeg Victorias, and the indications are that tbe players will be the
same as composed the two teams last
season when the series of three games
resulted in nine games being scored
for the Winnipeg Vies, and ten for the
Shamrocks. If George Carruthcrs,
a new Victoria player, can hold
down cover point, Charlie Johnston
will be moved to tho forward line.
Otherwise Armytage will play. ThlB
year's Stanley Cup games are causing
extraordinary interest all over
Canada.
At the opening of the senior  season
in Winnipeg the Victorias easily disposed of the Winnipegs, although the
former had only three regular senior
men on their team. The senior season opens in Montreal tonight when
the Victorias and Montreals meet. It
is likely that the Montreal team will
give the Shamrocks the closest race
for the championship. The Victorias,
for years the undisputed champions,
are now struggling with the responsibility of raising a new generation of
players, the veterans having retired
full of honors. Ottawa and Quebec
also meet tonight,but it is years since
the ancient capital had a strong team,
so the modern capital should win.
J. K. McCulloch, old hockey player
and champion skater, who gave an
exhibition of fancy skating in Nelson
last winter, will go to Europe this
winter and startle the inhabitants of
the captlals with his clever work.
He is now giving exhibitions in the
East.
CIVIC  INCORPORATION.
GEORGIA JUSTICE.
Rome, Ga., Jan, 5.���Geo. Reed, a

city, on Tuesday night, was hanged
yesterday to a tree and his body riddled with bullets by a mob of citizens.
Reed protested his innocence and
Mrs. Lockyar, before whom he was
taken, failed to identify him, but tbe
mob seeking the prisoner's life was
not satisfied until the negro had been
taken outside the city and lynched.
NOT A MUTINY.
London, Jan. 5.���The admiralty
officials say it is not true that a mutiny has occurred on board the British battleship Barfleui, as reported
from Hong Kong. Tbey say a "minor disturbance took place on board
the Barfleur implicating a few men.
These were repudiated by the rest.
Three men are under arrest."

CLIMBING   TO   THE TOP.
A press dispatch from Toronto says
the Registrar-General of Ontario estimates the present population of that
Province at 2,350,000. No one is in a
better position to estimate more closely,and when the census is taken a few
months hence the figures will probably be found to be nearly correct.
Ten years ago the population, by
actual count, was 2,114,321, and in
1881 it was 1,920,922. From 1881 to
1891 the increase was 187,399, or
slightly less than ten per cent, for the
decade. Takiog the Registrar-General's figures, the increase during the
decade just closing will be 235,679, or
slightly in excess of eleven per cent.
The population of Ontario has always
been very materially affected by emigration to the United States, as well
during the past two decades by migration to the Provinces and Territories of Western Canada. It is generally claimed that the emigration to
the States has fallen off so mneh that
it can scarcely be regarded as a factor, and for several years at least
tbe movement of population to tbe
West has not been as great as formerly. The Government have been claiming large accessions to the population
from Immigration, a fair portion of
which has gone to Ontario. This immigration, together with the saving
in migration and emigration, and a
normal birth rate, should leave that
Province today with a population considerably larger than that claimed by
the    Registrar - General. Ontario,
therefore, promises to be disappointing in its results, which will mean
also that tbe population of the Dominion will fall below the general ex-
peotation.
There will be large gains relatively
in Manitoba, the Territories, and
British Columbia, although the auso
luto gains will not materially affect
the population as a whole. We uus-
pect that the most substantial increase
will be made in (Juebeo, the Maritime
Provinces as usual showing little if
any advance. During the decide ending 1891 the total increase in that
Province was 129,508, while in Ontario it was 187,399, the per centagc
of increase being practically the same
in both. Quebec, however, was more
largely affected by emigration to the
States than was Ontario, and that
emigration has since not only do
clined almost to tbe vanishing point
but for a number of years a process
of repatriation has been going on with
the most satisfactory results. We
saw, too, the other day that Quebec
newspapers are boasting of the large
birth rate. More attention has also
been given to foreign Immigration.
Owing to these various causes, it will
not be surprising if tho absolute gain
in Quebec will quite equal that in
Ontario. As representation in Parliament is based on the population of
Quebec, this will mean a decline all
around in Parliamentary strength excepting In the West. Quebec's Influence and power in the direction of
national nffuirs will go up. At present the unit of representation is 22,-
900, obtained by dividing Quebec's
population at the last census by her
stationary representation of sixty-five
in the House of Commons. With un
absolute Increusc as great as Ontario's, the next unit will be 20,520,
which will inevitably reduce the number of members from Ontario nnd the
Maritime Provinces. It certainly
looks as if the anticipations of the
Quebec newspapers, that all of Canada will virtually be French-Canada
before many years, are in a fair way
���f being realised.
by the people. The value of the botcher business in Nelson was created by
the people. If there were no people
to eat meat there would be no butcher
business. The value of the druggist's
trade, of the grocer's, of the smelter's, of the assayer's, of the boat,
builder's, of the drayman's, of the
hotel keeper's, of the bill poster's, of
the organ grinder's���all of these and
the scores of others are made valuable
by the people, therefore the people
shoold own them. As Mr. John
Houston would say. they are public
utilities and ought to be safeguarded
by public ownership and control. And
if we put ourselves in this great and
good man's hands he will elect us a
Giuncil that will give us everything,
from our pills to our houses, through
the medium of these public   utilities.
The New York Post had reason for
its lament when it said the United
States wns the only civilised country
in the world that could not negotiate
a treaiy. With a Senate that care
fully nurses the ignorant and preju
diced portion of the electorate, there
is little hope of any treaty that does
not give the United States everything
in Bight. There is a standing dispute
over the Alaskan boundary. A modus
vivendi has been arranged pending a
permanent settlement, under which
Canada is given control of part of the
disputed territory. Yeterday a United States Senator intimated that the
President should be impeached for
abandoning territory "over which the
United States had undisputed sovereignty." What chance would there
be for a treaty which gave Canada a
foot of the disputed territory, with
such men as this to decide its fate?
Mr. Houston discovered some time
ago that he could as easily reverse the
eourse of the Kootenay River as get
himself re-elected Mayor of Nelson.
Like the shrewd man that he is he accepted the situation without a word,
and devoted his talents and energies
to the election of a Council to his own
personal liking. That would suit him
almost as well, barring, of course,
the Mayoral salary. He seems to be
making excellent progress.

Nelson, B. C, Jan. 3, 1901.
My Dear Grace���Being fairly launched into the much-tallted of, long-looked for "Twentieth Century," lam
writing you my first letter. I was
wondering how many now alive,
Would see the dawn of another. Not
many, so it will be well for us all to
make the most of the time that is
ours; I do not lalieve in New Year's
resolutions, so I have not made any
myself, nor have I asked any of my
family to do so. It seems very dift-
eren tout here from the oldfashioned
holiday time we used to have in the
East; new times, new places, new
manners of doing things, the eommou
salutation, "Happy New Year," is
npt heard so much, folks are too
busy, but in ten years from now, I
am sure the New Year's holidays will
Oe celebrated in this fair City in a'
manner second to none in the Dominion. I am prepared to prophesy great
things for the home of my adoption.
I wonder if in the course of that
mentioned period ol time the crossing at the corner of linker and
Ward Stieets will be finished. It is
Strange to see the spasmodic work
that is done there, .lust as soon as
the orusher goes off watch or something else happens to stop proceedings at tbe Victoria Street stone factory, the City's employees are to be
seen at tbe aforesaid corner, working
like Trojans. I always expect after
one of those spurts that the crossing
will be in such shape that we will be
enabled to walk over without making sure that our accident or life insurance policies are still in force.
Alas! My hopes are ever doomed to
be disappointed. Perhaps the City
Grandfather and other fathers keep
that little job open so jthat when all
otliei-H fail the men may not feel
���rushed in spirit by the lack of something to do. The City is rich, let the
job be spun out as long as possible.
You should see our streets now that
they are covered with snow. The
Small boy assisted by his little sister
is master of the situation. lie is out
in full force, dozens of him and of
her too, and indeed some of them are
not so very small; I love to see chil-
dien enjoying themselves, but the
principal streets are not the proper
place for coasting. The other day I
was watching the boys curving around
the 'corner of Josephine and linker
Streets. There was a gen tleman on
tbe crossing. He had not seen them
coming; a sled with two lads whs
right on him; he could not tell whether to advance or retreat. Happy
thought. He posed instantly as the
Colli sees at Rhodes and the laddies
���teered their sled gracefully through
the natural arch without liny danger
to either party. I think he will make
a   good Mayor.
Friday���1 promised to give you some
account of the ball, so did not finish
my letter yesterday ; I cannot, I was
not there; 1 will tell you the reason
Ifyou will promise never to reveal it.
1 would be ashamed to have it known,
Hay back hair���that lovely golden
���witch you sent me from Buffalo���
could not be found. Your uncle insisted on me resting during the afternoon, and while I was asleep my chief
adornment disppeared. Nothing will
ever convince rae that Theodore did
not hide it. You know what an atio-
eious old flirt he is, and how be loves
to pass off as a bachelor. He cannot
do it if I am around. I could not go
without my hair of course, and lie
really offered to stay at home and
keep uw company. He knew I would
not accept hueli a sacrifice,so ho went,
with many protestations that he
would not enjoy himself, would be
home early, etc. While he was dressing a telegram came flaying that Kegl-
aald would arrive home at 10 p. m. I
n*yer said a word, but I saw my revenge. I just gloated over that message. Tbeo went co the ball, Reg.
arrived and I told him the story. He
laughed and said,"I'll surprise daddy,
I'll go to the ball and show Mr.Brown
his eldest son." He went. Just as
he entered he espied his father waltzing with one of the loveliest girls in
the room. Reginald says the ladies
were darzlingly beautiful and were
gowned as elegantly as any he ever
law at some of the swellcst functions
in the East. The little golden haired
fairy with whom his father was dancing was just too sweet. He waited of
course, untill the waltz: ended and as
Theodore was escorting his partner to
her chaperone. he stepped forward.
Poor Tlieo. He winked at Reg. to
keep mum and actually introdced him
as, "A young friend of mine from
Toronto, In fact a relative, Mr. Reginald Brown."
Of course Reg. enjoyed the joke and
secured a dance with the ludy, but
he did not say Mr. Brown was his
father. The secret kept may help the
boy out some time when the pater inclines to be stingy with the cash.
They came home together, my handsome big son and his father. Your
uncle is still a fine looking man. I am
not disparaging him, but Reginald
resembles my family. I devoted myself to my boy and almost ignored his
rrent. Wh.-n I had to speak to him
was frigidly polite and addressed
him as "Mr.Browu," or "Pa, "either
ol which he dislikes being called, in
what be designates as the bosom of bis
family. He soon pleaded fatigue and
retired ; Keg. and I had a long talk
and a good laugh and as the storm
increased In violence I was not very
sorry 1 had not gone to the ball.
Your affectionate aunt,
MRS. T. ADOLPHUS BROWN.

Mr. J.   Jones   Asks Assistance to Enable Him to Exist.
The Miner has received from Mr.
J. Jones, now residing at Roberts'
Ranch, an appeal for aid either to exist in Nelson or to return to the Old
Country. The Miner believes Mr.
Jones deserving of aid and will be
pleased to act between him and any
who desire to assist him. The letter
follows:
Sir,���It is with deep regret I am induced to inform you that at the present moment I am entirely dependent
upon charitv for existence. I arrived
in this town during the spring of
1HII0 with over one thousand dollars,
with the hope of adding considerably
to the same in case I came across a
paying investment. My brothers and
partners in an old established pawn-
brokinj business at Pitalfields, London, for unexplained reasons, have refused to send me any money. Having
obtained a po'.ver-of-attorney to enable my wife to realise the necessary
amount, the solicitor informs me that
the deed is incorrect in one particular, so that I am practically penniless until I reach London again. If
you and your people will kindly enable me to exist by either giving employment or cash to return, they will
be rescuing me from starvation, and
I will thankfully remember their
charity for the remainder of ray existence. Anything in the way of influence with the authorities for a return
pass, or any remittance, will be acknowledged with thanks by Rev. Mr.
Akehurst. Your destitute reader.

They   were   happy   in   their     new
home and got   along all right without
a servant until the   ChriBtmas   season
came.    Then they entertained a number of friends during   Christmas   and
New Year's week   and   as   she didn't
like washing dishes   they   engaged   a
Chinaman.    She continued to   do  her
own cooking for a few days. Then she
allowed the Chinaman   to   get   breakfast one morning. Everything he cooked tasted of���, well   they didn't know
what.    She was sure he had opium on
his hands and   the   husband  waB   inclined to agree with her. They decided to try him again   at  lunch.    They
did so and   his lunch   looked   lovely.
But   again   there   was that   horrible
taste.    They were sure it   was  opium
this time.    She decided to get   dinner
herself and dismiss the   Chinaman after ho had   washed   the   dishes.    Her
dinner   was   a   dream     when   it   lie
steaming and hot on   the   table.    The
meat   was   delicious.    But    goodness
gracious'.   There   was that same taste
in the potatoes, in the carrots and on
the toaBt.    That horrid   opium   taste
INDEPENDENCE  OF   CANADA.
Some Fool Stuir   That Has  Found Its
Way Into Print.
The following appears in   American
papers as a  special from   Montreal to
the New York Times:   For some time
past there has been   some  discussion
about the doings of an alleged "hide
pendence"  club iu Montreal, but the
managers of the new   movement   did
not appear to judge   the   time opportune for   appealing  to the public.    A
good deal of interest was added to the
movement by the fact that during the
Paris Exposition a   large   number of
young men appeared in Paris vearing
"Independence   ot   Canada"  buttons
and an attempt was made   to   connect
J. I. 'Parte and   J. X.   Perrault,   the
Canadian   Commissioners,   with    the
movement,   because   a number of   independence   buttons were among  the
spoils   received   from   men   who  had
burglarized Mr. Perrault's house.
Mr. Perrault explained, however,
that these buttons were about fifteen
years old and he had changed his
views since.. Now the Canadian Independence League has issued its platform and constitution, but has declined to publish its list of officers and
members. The constitution consists
of eighteen clauses, of which the first
eight are:
Dissolution of the colonial relation
and declaration of independence.
New federation to be known as
United States of Canada.
Provinces to become states with sovereign power.
Federal authority to have only such
powers as shall be specially delegated

Napoleon Hayard, among his  comrades enjoys the proud title   of   "Emperor of   the Camelots"���street hawkers.    Napoleon   has got   himself  into
trouble, and has had to  appear before
a  correctional   tribunal.    M.   Joseph
Menard, in the   course   of   his speech
for the defence,   informed   the   court
that his client was   no ordinary mortal��� that he actually ruled over���or at'
least was recognized   as head by���95,-
000 Btreet hawkers.    So the   collectors
of statistics may insert in   their notebooks that there are 05,000   camelots,
selling in the streets of Paris   almost
everything, from an  exhibition ticket
to a mechanical pig!
The chairman of the London County
Council finds a proof of the growing
purity of the Thames in the act that
eels are becoming more abundant. If
Mr. Dickinson had taken counsel of
an angler, he might have learned
that the muddler a river tho more is
the eel in his congenial element.
The King of the Belgians is very
vain of his appearance, and spends a
lot of time on hiB toilet. His beard
especially is the object of infinite at-
tenion. At night, before going to
bed, he envelops it in a silk Back,
which prevents the hairs from uncurl-1
ing. His toilet table is covered with
brushes, con-rbs-aod -various kinds of
brilliuntine, und his majesty passes
half an hour there every morning.
Once a week the king's ohief valet du
chambre trims the royal beard, taking
care to keep it free from the neck, so
that the hairs may not get caught In
its collar.
Irish statistics lately issued show
that the Transvaal war must have
drawn pretty heavily on the equine
resources of the green isle. The number of horses and mules in Ireland in
1889 is given at 1110,415, while in 1000
it hud grown down to 507.041, a decrease of 12,774. The falling off wns
altogether in horses, these being fewer by 18,892 than iu the previous year.
Mules, ou the other hand, had increased by 54S, which seems an extraordinary thing, as the demand for
them for military puproscs Was also
very active.

London laugh. The Boer general
took three Imperial Yeomanry scouts
prisoners near Llndley and told them
if they would undertake to deliver
an important despatch into General
Rundle'B own hands they would be
liberated. The Yeomen gladly took
the despatch to Rundle, who opened
it eagerly.   It ran :

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is tbe special prescription of Dr. A. Boshee, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the Beverest nature, removing, as it dues, the cause of the afl'ce-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test ol years, giving satisfaction
in every case, whicli its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Iloscho's German Syrup was introduced in the United States In 1868,
and is now sold in every town and
village in the oivlllzed world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cough.
