Couple of Trump Cards-
a
A LARGE   OVERDRAFT.
The Oity Has Been Spending in a Very
Liberal Manner.���Much Business
at Last Night's Meeting.
Aid. Hillyer liurl a couple of sensations up liis sleeve for tho regular
meeting of the City Council last uiglit.
Al the last meeting of the Council he
claimed that .AW. Beer's Sunday closing by-laws hud been irregularly introduced, and nave notice himself that
he would introduce them at, tho next
meeting. This Look them nut of .-Mil.
rJeer's bands.and as Aid. Beer was not
present lust night Alii. Hillyer quietly
informed the Council lhat be wished
to have them read a first time six
months hence, it was 11 little sohemo
of bis to defeat thorn, hut Aid, MoKil-
lop whs alert, anil insisted that they
he left over until the next meeting,
when Aid. Beer will be present. As
nil tho barbers  in the  City petitioned
edged the receipt ot 11 1 V pie from the
Oity in payment for pi| b,uh I ex.] r -:
its willingness to supply tbe City with
the remainder of the pice ond to accept
an official receipt for ii now, payment
Itobemnde next year, when the pipe
twus used. The company was informed
thai the pipe would he ordered as re ���
qui ��� it nl.
All the barbers of tbe Oity, thirteen
in number, applied to the Council for
a Sunday closing by law. Aid. Hillyer
had already given notice of his inten-
tiou to introduce smh a by-law, but
withdrew his notice. He also withdrew the general Sunday closing bylaw, of which ho had given notice.
Meanwhile tho Council went back
nnd fomiil out where it was nt, by deferring action on the barbers' petition
until tho by-law was introduced.
Tenders for a fire alarm system were
then opened. They gave a detailed
li��t of .".il the appliances required for a
complete system, There were two tenders, both of which ogpregated over
$3,000, and thoy were referred lo the
Bund of Works
Tim Mayor was instructed to purchase a uniform to enhance tho beauty
of the Chief of Police..
When the question of sewers for the
Hoover addition came up, Aid.Fletcher
came out in favor of doing the work
by tiny labor, as he thought the City
could save same money by so doing. It
was left to the Board of Winks witb
power to act.
Tho Mayor brought the attention of
the Council to the fact that Mr. Was
son, the assistant oity clerk, had worked from eight o'clock in  the morning

reluctantly compelled to admit that the
barbers know more about their own
business than some of tho Aldermen
do. Aid. Hiilycr's other scheme is the
opening of a first class music hall and
beei' gulden in the oity. He went on
record as wanting onlv a really np to
date one, and he discountenaucejd the
idea of al low ing young ladies in abbreviated costume/ to persuade foolish
young men to spend money for liquid
beverages that thoy did not want. He
knew some one in  Spokane  who was
Willing to open a first class rausio hall
here and he said thai the license commissioners and police commissioners
could easily seo that   it was conducted
on a thoroughly moral basis.
Tho Mayor and Aldermen McEillop,
Eirkpntriok, Hillyer ami Vletober were
present when   the  meeting was called
to order and the ball sot rolling.
Before the minutes had been approved, Aid. Hillyer asked   what had been
done towards strengthening  the' Oity
police   celR    He   said the matter had
been hanging firo for a long time, ami
if it were allowed to drop now nothing
else  would   he  done   until some other
prisoner escaped.     Merely put ling liars
in would not answer the purpose, for a
man   on   the   outside  could   pry open
liars at any time,and so liberate prisoners.   The  Mayor promised to have the
matter attended to this week, and Aid,
Hillyer was satisfied,
Tho Finance Committee recommended the payment of the usual accounts,

requesting tho City to look after un
old man who as living nl. the llOBpil il,

It had been arranged to allow 23

the field against his teain>and that the
effect on liis men was depressing. He
stipulated that heoould sejud i'3 men to

nulav's play was the fielding of the
visiters. The Prince put in several of
his bowlers, Townsend being the most
effective. The biggest inilivinual score
was ^7, made by Jordcn, White following with 31. Banjitsinbji bowled vice

Nelson's System to Bo Greatly Improved in the Near Future.
Tbe Kootenay Luke Telephone Com-
pay is going to bring its Nelson service
up to that  standard nf  excellence that
a rising   City   like   Nelson  demands.
The present return around system will
ho ohauged to a metallic system of the
latest design.    Poles have been ordered
for   linker   street, and in order   not to
have a hranohloss forest on that street,
Urn street railway company   will  suspend   its   trolleys   from the telephone
poles, and  thus save the putting up of
two more rows.    The general superintendent   of   tbe   company, Mr. II. W.
Kent, is  now in the  Hast  purchasing
new switchboards mid oilier apparatus.
Tho  company   will do away with tbe
present   Blake   transmitters, and   will
put in the latest   long disunion  truus-
mitter,   'Ibis cbargo will  greatly improve the long distunes service.   Starting on the first oi   ije'iih. v. ,i continuous day ami   liigln service will   be in-
augiirnted in Nelson    M. It, B, Hodge
has  been   appointed   manager of   the
Ni Isen office, us Mr. George O. Bodge
finds  that  his duties us district supor-
inleiiileiil occupy all bis time.    As the
ooinpany does  not  wish   I i Lntertero
with the working of the system while
the  improvements are  being made it
Will neeessiirily be slow work, uml will
not be ootnpleted I'm mine months.
Aid. Hillyer Btnted that when in
fipolcnuo il short lime ago a citizen of
that, town bad offered him lo establish
n music hull and a beer garden in Nelson if sufficient inducement m the way
��� i' license could be arranged. It vfould
be a si nelly first class and well conducted house.
Tins precipitated a moral discussion.
Tho idea of such u plane as Kaslo once
iuiusiiid of was dismissed at once. Aid.
Hillyer would support the opening of u
well-conducted and lawful house, us it
Would provide the young men of Nelson wiih a suitable place in which to
spend au hour or so each evening', it:
wns time the City was supplying some
such amusement
As a liquor license would be required, uml us there was none available at
present, a by-law would be necessary
lo put lo the people to authorize tbe
granting of an additional license

London,  Sept. 2-1. --The   officials   of
(ho Foreign Office   ibis  evening   pave
out tho text of the letter of   the Secro-
tarj of ;-'i ito for tho Colonies, Mr. Jos.
( liamhi rl ''.ii    to    the    J'.ritis'.i    High
Co nt lissionor in  South Africa, Sir Alfred Milner, dated Sept. 22,   The British   reply   expressed   regret, that   Her
Majeslv's  offer   number live, of   Sep-
teml   : hss been   refused, aud says the
"one objoot of  Her Mojestv's Government   had in view in the recent nego-
tiitions   has   been   stated in a manner
which cannot   admit of   misapprehensions, viz:   To obtain such substantial
and immoiiaio representation  for   the
Uitlanders ii3 will   enable them to aa-
oniefor  themselves  that fair and just
treatment which was formally promised them in 18.s!,niid which Her Majesty intended to secure for them  when
she granted privileges of  self   government to the Transvaal     No conditions
lesi comprehensive thai those contained in the telegram   of   September   8rd
can   be   relied on to effect this objoot.
The refusal of the Snutn African Gov-
eiiiinent   to   entertain   the   offer I bus
made, coining   as   it   does after  four
months   of    protracted    negotiations,
themselves the climax of  live yours of
extended agitation, makes it useless to
further pursue  the discissions   in   the
lines   hitherto   followed, and   tho Imperial Government  is now compelled
to consider the   sitnation   afresh  nnd
formulate new proposals for a final set-
tlement i^f the i-snes which   have been
created in South Africa by the   policy
constantly followed  for many years by
the Government of South Africa. They
will communicate the  result  of   their
deliberations in a later dcsnutcli "
In a latter communication, datod
September 22, the Imperial Government takes up the charge of a breach
of faith insinuated by Secretary ot
Stato Bints:, September 10, "which,''
it is pointed out, "\vu cannot puss
over in silence.'' Mr. Chamberlain
then says:
"The proposals made Ly tlie South
African Republic in its letters of August ID and 20 were not induoed by
suggestions given by the British agent
from the State Attorney, as claimed,
but that, oil the contrary, the State
Attorney sounded tie British agent,
both in writing and in conversation,as
in the conditions which the Imperial
Covernniont would waive the Invitation to adjourn the enquiry, and* the
result of these communications was
proposals made by the South African
Government in these letters, It is impossible that the South African Government could have Icul any doubt as
to the imperial Government's answer
in the conditions named, and my reply
was actually the same as tho British
agent had foreshadowed to the State
Attorney, and which, therefore, they
must, have anticipated in making the
proposals,"
The  Imperial  Government   also denies that its telegram of September 8th
substitutes an entire new   proposal  for
the invitation to tbe joint commission
of enquiry.   The tmpeiial Government
then reqiioles the despatch from South
Africa of August 19, containing un
alternative proposal identical with thai
which  the   Imperial   Government   is
said to have substituted, aud the com-
niuniciitioii then proceeds us follows :
"The Imperial Co.eminent has no
reason Cor misapprehension on the part
of the South African Republic as to its
answer regarding non-Interference and
suzerainty, as tbe Imperial Govern-
nieiit Iiiul already stated it would not
press for the appointment of a eoiinnis-
ioii of inquiry, in view of the fact
that smh an Inquiry would be, In the
opinion of the Government of South
Africa, prejudice the ii;.ht ol full iu-
ilepeiiilcuee repeatedly recognized by
the Imperial Government.
"As to the  use of the English language in tbe Volksi'iiiiil, the   Imperial
Gaveriimont mgards this as reasonable,
and is nsioiiislc d that the Government
of   the  South Afrieun Republic should
demand it unnecessary nnd  make it a
Will Probahlj Build a Hos.I into the
United States,
"Information conies from an apparently reliable source," says the
Spokesmau-Reviow, "that a narrow
gauge railroad is to be built from Re-
puhlio to Grand forks, B, O. The information is that the road will be
built by Canadian capital, which is
making heavy investments in Republic
mines, and that the principle object of
the Company is to build a line which
will transport its ore to the Graves
smelter. The road will, however, liun-
dlo general passenger and freight
traffic
"That an easy grade for the road can
be had has been demonstrated by s iv-
eral parties of railroad surveyors who
have been ovei the intervening country
during the present yenr. The only delay in early construction lies in the
fact that the company must either wait
until the Oolvllle reservation is formally opened to settlement, or else must
secure a right of way franchise from
Congress. As the reserve will probably be opened by proclamation of the
President this winter, the delay will
not be for long. "

FRUIT   RAISING ON   KOOTENAY
LAKE.
To   any one   who  doubts that fruit
raising   could   be   made  profitable on
Lake Kootenay, the fact can   easily bo
proved light here in   the   heart of   the
City.    .Tust  across the street from tho
Phair Hotel, on Victoria   street, is the
little orchard   of   Mr. Johnstone, Collector of  Customs.   In this  little spot
of probably not more than a quarter of
an   acre, can   bo   seen   some splendid
ipeoiniens     of     fruit-bearing      trees,
loaded   with   Emit���apples, paars  and
plums     The   trees   are   Bmall,    being
young, hut they   present a fine appear
mice, having   a   thrifty, healthy look,
that   betokens   care   nnd    experience.
Several varieties   of   small   funis are
here, aud   the   vines   and bushes   bear
wonderfully,    It   is  worth   while for
any one to take a wall:   down Victoria
street aud view this oasis ill the mountains.    There are hundreds of  acres of
land along   tho  shores of   Luke Kootenay which will raise anything planted
in the soil that can be raised in a temperate zone.    The  land can   lie  easily
secured, and   with   little cost put   under cultivation.   This is matter of importance to  this country, and   il   will
pay   any   man, with   small  means or
large, to   examine   into   this   matter.
All   of   the   fruit  consumed   iii   the
Kodtenays    can     be   raised   right   at
home, ami possibly some for shipment,
There   iH  more than one fortune to be
mode   on   Luke Kootenay    iu Mm fruit

Manila, Sept. 25. ���Tbe Insurgents
bave captured the United States gunboat Ordanota, in Orani River, northwest side of Manila bay,where she was
patrolling. One officer and nine of her
crew are missing. The United States
gunboat Petrel was sent to investigate
matters, and has returned hero after
having discovered Urdaneta beached
opposite tho town of Orani River. She
was riddled with bullets, burned, and
the following gnus with ammunition
captured : A one-pounder, one Colt automatic gun, and one Nordenfoldt 25
millimetre gun. Tho crow are piiaon-
ers or have been killed.
The gunboat Urdaneta, which was
captured with her crew at Oiuni,
ibout 2ii miles from Manila, on Buy of
Manila, is a little craft of only forty
ions displaoemeut. She was captured
by the navy curly in tho war and has
been ou police duty iu the buy fo
months past. Naturally the departiiien
officials are vexed that the difficulties
of negotiations looking to the release
of Lieutenant Gilmore, of tho York-
town, hinl his men should be added to
bv thJB last misfortune.
AN IRISH PROTEST.
New York, Sept. 25���At a meeting
ot the United Irish societies the following resolutions were adopted:
Whereas, a committee of officers representing the Irish volunteers waited
upon Major General Hose, Grand Marshal of the Dewey parade, nnd asked

and
Whereas, as tho Scottish Highlanders ot Toronto, a body of mon alien to
our Republic, and hostile to our institutions, have boon honored with tbe
right of line, iinme liately following
tlie Olympia's crew, and preceding tbe
Stule National Guard, therefore
Bo it Resolved, That wo take emphatic exceptions to this action as invidious, if not hostile to 'he Irish vol-
'iiikcis and resent the unjust discrimination as depriving tho regiment of

.SCABS AND  THINGS.
"Dividends," says The Mining and
Scientific Press." ore essential to
success in a mining enterprise." On
wlii'-h The Victoria Times remarks:
" Via th'Higlit as nni'li. and always hail
a lurking suspicion that the purpose of
mining was to produce dividends, and
not merely for il��' fun of tho thing."
Which only goes to show how lament ���
ably behind tbe turns The Times is.
[f it were to study the Eight-Hour
press of the Kuoleiiays as it should, it
would know that mine owners have no
right ti> dividends, lint are expected
and required to distribute their earnings in the form of increased wages.
That hns been laid down ns a moral
obligation from which there is no
escape.
WHY  NOT?
Tbe Silvertonian is the name of a
newspaper published at Bilverton. It
has borne a good character, nnd lias really deserved it. But it is losing its
head over these labor troubles. Tlie
issue nf Saturday fairly reeks with the
siniike of str ing names and offensive
epithets. It has an article on "scabs."
This is the name it gives to men who
seek employment without asking tbe
permission of the Unions. The name
is familar enough, no doubt, among
the men themselves, but a respectable
newspaper should be slow to adopt it.
.Members of a Union may make themselves angry enough to apply any term
to men who decline to he ordered about
as if they were incapable of looking
after their own interests. That is
their affair, and tn them the word
"scab'' may appear most excellent and
111 every sense appropriate, But that
does not alter the fact that a "seal/'
may be quite as honorable in character
and as good a citizen as a member of a
Union. The two have different wavs
of lcoking at the same thing. If we
keep in mind the fact that in this free
British country the man who is not of
tlie Union has precisely the same right
to his opinion as the other, and the
right, too. to act upon it, we shall
probably have less patience with an
epithet that is disgusting in its coarseness, and bh little deserved, by the one
as by the other. All men have equal
right to dispose of their services as
they choose. The Unions would be the
better if they comprehended this.
Our eruptive contemporary also
published a statement prepared by
four men who say they were hired in
the East to work at the Payne mine.
They say they were induced to come
"under till vilest kiui of falsehood,"
and throughout tin' statement other
very .strong language is employed, for
which, taking tlie sense only, thero
lines not appear to be any provocation.
It is not ns sulphurous as the "s iab"
article, but it makes lively reading.
In another place is the copy of an
advertisement which an agent of the
Unions, who recently visited Toronto,
had inserted in The Globo of that city.
It was also offf rerd to The Mail, but
the management of that paper declined
to accept it. The advertisement warns
minors in the East not to come to British Columbia, "owing to n strike
against a reduction of wages. " We are
expected to frown savagely at The
Mail for adhering to its principle
"not to publish notices to warn men
to keep away from any place where
there was a strike on,'' but tbe falsehood in the advertisement wo are to
receive without tho faintest twitching
of the eyebrows. Tlie strike is against
a reduction of wages, it is said. Every
grown man in tlie Knotenays knows
that the strike is to obtain an increase
of wages,and because the employers are
resisting tho demand thoy are denounced as hogs anil tyrants, and other
beautiful nnd flattering things of a
similar sort. These and more appear in
The Silvertonian, all Indicating that
iiriiuiul and about the place of publication tho Eight-Hour law has the field
pretty much to itself.
Editor of The Miner :
I had got to abr.ut my third glass the
other morning, about 10 a. m.. when
the friend with whom I was drinking,
suddenly said : ''What do you think of
the (Sunday closing by-law?" My
friend knows that I stand strongly for
the Eight-Hour law, but we had never
discussed the other snbjets together. I
replied, "I'm dead against them.
What right has any parcel of bigoted
or hypocritical idiots to say that I
shan't carry on my business every day
iu tho week, if I wisli to'.-1 They
needn't work mi Sundays if they don't
want to. Bet why should they attempt to stop me? No sir, it is disgraceful infringement nf the liberty of
the subject." You see, I bail read the
papers and knew how to put the thing.
"Well,'' said he. "your argument
seems to me to answer the Eight-Hour
law. Why may not each minei work
us long as he wishes to?" I confess I
was a little confused, probably owing
to my not having had my usual
quantity of whiskey that morning, but
1 managed to answer, "Oh, but it is
bad for the men's health to work
longer underground." "Well," he
answered, "experience shows that a
day's rest in tlie week is needful to
all. providing they work to their limit
the Other six. " With that he handed
me a little tract, anil deoarted. Looking at the leaflet. I found it contained
tlie following little poem:
One day in the week -lic-uId tie taken for rest.
Six days ye shall work mil of *e\ en;
Man's nature demands it, and we know it is
best,
For tliis law was delivered from Heaven
Hut now our law-makers, witli wisdom divine,
A new law have bound us up fast t.o;
"JSlgbl tiniir- u day shall ye work ju a mine,'"
"Ami do all therein Iiiul thou bus to."
And yet the old law will be standing alone,
When i li" new one i-" denif and forgotten;
For the finger uf God Insorlbed that one on
atone,
While Polly fixed lliisiine on Cotton.

Nelson, B. C., Sept. 8Stb, 1HD9.
The Pemie Free Press doubts whether there are two merchants in that
town who know that there are any
wholesale houses in Nelson. This is
nut an accurate guess. It was probably
ii<it   intended   to be;   it is the method
adopted by our contemporary   to give
emphasis to its point that wholesalers,
ss well as others,must advertise if they
expect to do business. And a good.
und, common sense point it is. Nelson is fast becoming a wholesale centre for tho entire southern portion of
thu Province, and it is rather curious
that such knowledge of the fact as exists isdiie.not to the wholesalers themselves, but to the gratuitous circulation
of it given in the news columns of the
press. That may speak well for the
enterprise of tlie newspapers; the
wholesalers may conoluao for themselves how it is calculated to reflect on
them.
Says The Toronto Mail: "If Sir
Rlohard Cartwrlght wero to talk until
Doomsday be could not convince anybody that an increase in the Federal
expenditure by 110,000,000 annually is
Justifiable." Thnt may be open to
dispute;   but  he   certainly  could   not

CLARKE WALLACE
TALKS TO A LAKGE AUDIENCE  AT
THE OPERA HOUSE
Successful Meeting Held Under the Auspices of the Nelson Orange Lodge
Last Night.
j that there was no discrimination
against Nelson by the S. F. & N., the
same rates being obarged on the other
side of the line.
Mi. Bellamy reported that the ore
was all packed and ready to be sent
away to SpoKaue, and the Finance
Committee agreed to meet today nnd
settle who should be sent to look after
the   exhibit at the  Exposition.
A largely attended meeting was bold
last night in the Opera House, under
the auspices of the Loyal Orange Association of this City. The Hon.
Clarke Wallace gave an address. The
Rev. R. Frew was chanman and open
ed tbe meeting with a short speech in
which he introduced Mr. Wtilliic", referring to tlie influence ho has had in
the political life of tho oounttry in the
past twenty-five years, and also to the
fact that for the past thirteen years he
Ind been Grand Master of the Loyal
Orange Association of the Dominion.
Mr. Wallace in rising began by rcfer-
ling to the gieutuess of the Dominion
and also the fact that British Columbia was destined to b9 tbo Oradlo of
Liberty for tbo Dominion us all mountainous countries had been.
Referring to the greatness of our resources in British Columbia greater
than anything in any of the other
Provinces. Ho complimented Nelson
on tbe benefits she hud in tho way of
material resources, mid also ou her
churches of nil shades of thought; lint
he pointed out that Nelson must not
allow her schools to become a matter of
secondary consideration. Unless we
had a good school system of both secondary and higher education the City
would never hold that place her advantages entitled her to hold, and the citizens of Nelson would do well to look
to that. He then referred to tbe Orange Association and her principles of
Benevolence, Protestantism nnd Patriotism.
The Orniige Association was not essentially political. But it became political with a mngio quickness when
any matter came up in politics opposed
to her principles. This was seen when
the separate schools were being advocated for Manitoba. The Orange Association opposed that in the last Government, and when the present Government sent n petition to the Pope,
signed by 151 members of Parliament,
seven Cabinet ministers and delegation
after delegation, tho Orange Association let them know that they would
oppose them to tbe death in any attempt to unite intcifeionce of a foreign power in the Government of the
Dominion, Five hundred years ago
Croat Britain resented the interference nf the Popi and so would Canada
today���Canada can n.ind her own
affairs
Canada ha- a history When,in lRlt',
the States w uited to annex purr ot
Canada, wo stood up and fought ami
reiisfod, and when the war was over
there was nol :v foot of land in tho
possession of the invader.
Speaking of the common desire for
increase in the population of (ho Do
minion and the large immigration assisted by the present Government of
foreigners who would not become assimilated to the life of the country in
this generation, he said that numbers
counted for little in tho greatness of a
country. If that were so, China with
her lino millions would be among the
greatest of nations, and wo know what
she is. Oue could not look without
alarm at the tremendous flooding of
the oounrty by nationalities so littlo
like the Auglo-Snxon people. Many of
them wero a menaoe to tho country,
and for ono nationality be was convinced there wns nnd should be no
place in this Dominion���the Chinese.
When British went to China they
were an uplifting force. When the
Chinese oamo here their influonce wns
nothing but degrading ��ud should not
lie   tolerated.
Mr. Wallace concluded witb a tribute of loyalty to our Queen and Empire.
A vote of thanks wns proposed bj
Mr. Toye, and seconded by Rev. J.
Robson. After Mr. Wallace acknowledged the thanks, the meeting closed
with tbo singing of tho national anthem,
Tho  sigu   you need enn  be most attractively painted   by Bindley & Oo.
ABOUT THE  SPOKANE FAIR.
The Board of  Trade  Is Looking After
International Day.
Yesterday afternoon there was 0 special meeting of the Board of Trade.
There wero piosent J. Roderick Robert-
sou, President, in the ohuir. Messrs.
Proctor, Dowsing, Gamble, Kelly,
Bherwood, Jowott, Reilamy, Holt,
Bannerman, MoLeod and Swannell.
The minutes of the last meeting
were read und confirmed.
W. A. Jowett reported that nhout
forty peopi0 had signified their intention of going to Spokane for International Day, and he moved that the invitation of the manager of the Exposition be accepted. Mr. Bellamy second-
"'1 it, and it was carried unanimously.
It wus moved by F. G. Proctor and
Keoouded by A. H. Kelly that the
thanki of the Board bo given Messrs.
���'owett uud Dowsing, uml that thoy he
requested to continue the work and
wrungo better rates, if possible.
-Messrs. Jowett and   Dowsing reported
A CURIOUS   RESTORATION.
About tlie 1st of July, last summer,
Dr, H. L, A. Keller, of Ymir, was
making n trip up Kootenay River to
inspect some mining property, and on
tbe trip he lost a silver cigarette case
to which he attached gteat vnlue, it
being a present from an old friend. It
wns searched for carefully witlinnt
avail, and the iloetoi returned without the knowledge even of where
he had lost it. He came to the
Miner office and advertised the case as
lost, describing it accurately,and offered a loward nf five dollars for the
finder of the same. Weeks passed, and
no tiding of the lost case. But anything advertised in Tho Miner could
not stay lost forever; it was bound to
turn up somewhere. Mr. Archie Johnston, nf this City, was up ou the
Kootenay River not long since, to
Ward's Landing. He was around the
boat house,and the boatman in looking
for something opened up an old chest,
tiled with odds and ends of almost
everything imaginable, Among nil of
this old material lay the lout cigarette
case. Mr. Johnston examined it nnd
recognized it ns the one advertised for
in The Miner, by the initials on it.
Upon inquiry, the boatman told him
that not long since he bad been out
fishing, and while rowing around he
saw something bright on tbo bottom of
the river, and taking his fish net he
succeeded in getting it. Not knowing
who it belonged to he had put it away.
Mr, Johnston brought it homo with
him and returned it to Dr. Keller,who
was rejoiced to receive it, and he immediately forwarded $5 to tho boatman, who gratefully acknowledged the
receipt thereof.
A MUNICIPAL  MUDDLE.
It Is now twelve months or more
since Hewitt Rostock, M. P., and an
official of the Interior Department
were here to collect information on
the townsite tangle. At that time it
was onnounoed that the Furwnll town-
site disoute had reached a definite
shape. In n few months, by the end of
'98, A. S. Fiirwell would either havo
to accept n fresh putout securing whatever Dominion grants und sales had
left ont of his original grant, or else
let nothing at all. In fact the impres-
lion left was that if he did not accept
by that riiiln, bis claims would ipso
fuetn ho thenceforth out of court. This
was to happen bv Deo. Slst, 181)8 We
are drawing on to December 81st, 18!)!),
and still things remain as thev were
in 1 S!I!S. Not! ing has been done. Mr.
Knrwel] has not received a fr��sh pat
enf. The Dominion bus not resumed
possession. The unsold or uugianted
portions of the old Farwell grunt are
still reserved. Tlie Department of the
Interior, which has now- been about 12
years considering over tho matter, still
demands more time tor consideration.
They say thny cannot possibly get
around to it. for n few weeks. And so
a few more weeks roll on into a few
more moutliH, years, centuries, neons.
In the meanwhile some of the best
parts of the townsite are locked tip,
nobody can buy lots on them, and no
tnxes enn be collected by the municipality from them. The practical result is that this town is going to bo
about S'J.000 short of the amount of
taxes, which it should he collecting
within the corporation tbis year.���

As clouds of dust are wafted into
various eyes and open doors on Buker
stroe*, taxpayers say some uncomplimentary things about (lie wator carl's
laziness. The City seems to have no
intention of bringing out the cart again
this fall, but as it will probably rain
within the next two mouths there is
not need to worry. It will he out all
right in the spring to catch next year s
dust.
