NOISY   SCENES.
Lower House of  the   Hungarian  Diot
In au Uproar.
Buda Pest, Leo. . Deo. 7.���Iu the
lower house of the Hungarian Diet
today some noisy scenes occurred. The
latter of Dr. De Szilagyi, president of
the jhamber of deputies, anonncing
his resignation, foreshadowed on Dec.
6th, was road and Dr. Lang, one of
the vice presidents, whose deteruiina-
liou to rei-n "T.s announced,' at the
same time peisoufally announced his
resignation. Frauds Kossuth, in behalf of his party, aud Palouyi, for the
independents, proposed that no cognizance be taken of Dr. Szilagayi's resignation, whereupon the premier,
Baorn Banffy, arose to reply. For a
timo his re-narks were inaudible, owing to the great uproar prevailing, but
finally the premier denied tbat the
government desires Szilagayi to make
ill-use of the rules of the house aud
employ force. Finally a resolution was
adopted requesting Dr. Szilagayi to
withdraw his resignation. The reference to the employment of force iu the
remarks of the Hungarian premier,
apparently refers to the alleged intention of Baron Banffy to carry on the
government next year by decrease owing to the failure of Austria-Hungary
to come to a satisfactory arrangement
for the government of the dual monarchy.
AGAINST  EXPANSION.
Senator Vest of Missouri Introduces   a
joint Resolution  in tbe Senate.
Washington. Deo. Deo. 6.���The first
note Of the auti expansionists was
sounded in the senate today by Senator Vest of Missouri who introduced u
joint resolution declaring that under
the constitution the federal government had no authority to acauire colonial possessions to be governed as
such, but all territory acquired by the
government except suoh as may be
necessary for use as coaling stations,
correotiou of boundaries and similar
purposes.may be acquired with the
purpose of organizing territories ultimately for admission into the union as
states. Mr. Vest announced his purpose to address the Senate on the resolution at an early date.
A brief discussion-of the navigation
laws was participated by the consideration of a bill amending these laws
by tbe addition of a provision that
foreign built vessels wrecked in the
United States,purchased by citizens of
this country uiid repaired to the extent
of three-fourths of their value, shall be
subject to forfeiture if they engage
subsequently in tbe coastwise trade of
the United'States. :
REICHSTAG OPENED.
Emperor William Was Enthusiastically
Received and Awarded Cheers.
Berlin, Dec 6.���The course of the
emperor William'b speech delivered! at
the opening of the Reichstag today.
There was a special message devoted
to the inspection of meat on which
subject His Majesty said : "In order to
avert the dangers involved in the
traffio of unexamined meat intended
for humane, whether of home or foreign origin, the question ot the general
introduction of a system of inspection
of both cattle intended  for slaughter
house and meat is being considered
The. Federal government's bill regulating the subject will, I hope, occupy
your attention during the preseut
session.''
Emperor William o.-neluded with
saying that it was with deep emotion
that he bad visited with the Empress,
spots rendered dear to the whole of
Christendom by the suffering of the
Saviour. "The anxious desire of my
predecessors on the the throne of Prussia was to erect a place of worship of
the evangelical confession. That it
was granted to me to fulfill rhis desire
and hand over to the Redeemer's
church at Jerusalem to the servioe of
tbe Lord is a fresh incentive to further employ the power vested in me by
the grace of God in behalf of the
eternal and fundamental truths of
Christianity. Guided by such senti.
mentfc it affored my heart a special
satisfaction to fill tbe long cherished
wish of the German cathedrals by the
acquisition of property on Mount Zion
sacred to the in by hallowed reminiscences.
"I cherish the hope tbat my stay in
tbe Turkish Empire aud the "brilliant
reception accorded me by the tbe Sul-
ton and the Turkish people everywhere,
will prove to be of permanent benefit
to German prestige and the national
interest of Germauy."
His Majesty's speech was repeatedly
cheered. Count Von Lorcbenfeld, the
Bavarian plenipotentiary, then called
for three cheers for tbe Emperor, after
whioh Emperor William and son left
the hall and the deputies proceeded to
the Reichstag where Herr Lingene took
the chair as senior member. After tbe
usual formalities of tbe opening, the
Reichstag adjourned until Wednesday.
SNOW ON   THE   ROOF.
Some Advice Which   Might   Well   Be
Heeded by Nelson  People.  ���
Under the caption of "The Snow nn
the Roof" the Rossland Evening Record .of Monday Inst, contains some advice which is valuable as well to Nelsou as Rossland people. The Record
says;
There is about 20 iuches of suow and
in many instances it is not being ro-
moved from the roofs of houses when
there is greut danger of its slidiug off
ou to smaller structures and might entail loss of life also. The owner is
liable and should see that his roof is
cleaned when there is a chance of others being injured.
Rossland suow weighs about 12
pounds to tho square foot. Twenty
inches on the ordinary roof will contain 2,160 feet, covered with twenty
inches of snow it w 11 have to sustain
a weight of 4H.000 pounds, lean read-
ly be seen that the small houses which
are under the eaves of the larger onos
are in danger of being crushed.
Houses not strongly built will themselves be in dungei of being crushed^
It is time now for tbose who it concerns to be looking after their own
safety and the snftey of their neighbors below. There would be no harm
in the police calling the attention of
the occupants of such places to tbe
danger.

Says of -Cubans.
Kingston, Jamaica, Deo. 7.���United

of the amount to1 be paid for the Philippines. The "Independents" thinks
Ibis course tho only juHt one. It insists that tho Filipinos havo aided the

CONTESTS IN FIVE
Lower House Nominations
Made Yesterday.
FOSTER ON THE STUMP
At a Meeting at Sanaa He  Oives His
Views of the Liberal Party
Generally.
Toronto, Deo. 7.���Nominations were
held today in five constituencies for
elections for the House of Commpns
which take place on Wednesday of
next week. Nine contests will rosult.
One constituency, East Prince, is in
Prince Edward Island, two, Montgomery and Bagot, in Quebec, and two,
West Lamp ton and North Simeon, are
in Ontario. Tbe West Lampton vacancy wus caused by the eleotion to
the bench of James Lister, the Libera]
Representative of tbe constituency.
Tbe fight will be a straight party one,
the nominations being Dr. T. G. Johnson, Liberal, and John Faroll, Conservative. In North Simcoe, made vacant
by the death of the late D'Altou McCarthy, an Independent and Liueral
were nominated. The Independent is
Leighton McCarthy, nephew of the
late member and who holds the- same
political views as did Daltou McCarthy
who sat for North Simcoe for years.
The Libral candidate witl be James A.
Martin of New Lowell and the con-
tost promises to be interesting.   ,
Great vim is being thrown into the
West Lampton contest and the best
available fighting forces of bnth parties will be pressed into servire. Already several good meetings bm'i been
held, Hon. Geo. Foster doing considerable campaigning. At Surma last
night. Mr. Foster spoke at a meeting
of Conservatives. The feature of his
address was the imaginary representation of Minister of Customs Patterson by the chairman,between whom
aud the speaker a very lively dialogue
ensued, greatly of course, to the advantage of the Conservatives. He convicted Mr. Patterson and the Liberals
generally in this way, of inconsistency
and change of policy, and declared
that the tariff legislation of the liberals had been dishonest aud unmanly.
He denied that the govern nun i bad
done anything to open up t^|k Yukon.
They have not put a dollar nr a trail
in the whole Klondike regions. Twenty thousand people there were in Dawson City aud the government had not
paid a single dollar for a system of sanitation which would keep them tolerably free from certain disease and
perhaps death. Police were a necessity
for the Klondike but a military expedition was useless expenditure. He
praised tbe action of the senate iu
throwing out the Mann and MacKen-
zie contract and asked where was the
promised wave of retribution which
was to sweep the Senate from its
course.
Hon. Mr. Mulock will address a
meeting in the Liberal interest during
the next few days. There is uot tho
slightest doubt felt by Liberals here,
that tbe Liberal candidate will bo
< lected by a  large majority.

A
Is Vigorously Denounced By
Paris Newspapers.
OFFICIALS    SURPRISED
Believed Remarks Will Have a Bad Effect
on the Present Condition of Frenoh
Sentiment.
Paris Deo. 7.���Tbe Paris newspapers
today vigorously denounce the speeoh
delivered yesterday evening by the
British Ambassador, Sir Edmund J.
Monson, at tbe annual meeting of the
Btitisb Chamber of Commerce here,
being a commentary and warning in
the most offensive form. They say the
French Ambassador at London, M
Paul Oanibon, will oertainly be instructed to ask the Marquis of Salisbury whether it was by hiB orders
that Sir Edmund undertakes to direct
France's foreign policy. The ambassador's speech caused a sensation in
ollicial and diplomatic oircles. The
officials here are intensely surprised
and express a certain disquietude,
as it is anticipated Sir Edmund Monson 's remarks will have a bad effect on
the preseut condition of the French
sentiment.
SENSATION   IN   LONDON.
Most of the Papers Think the  Speeoh
Unfortunate,
London, Dec; 7.���Sir Edmund Monson 's remarkable speech in Paris last
evening, has created a sensation here.
Most of the papers regard it as an unfortunate indiscretion, pointing out
that the nine ambassadors he referred
to, despite their leaning* to the new
diplomacy, would never have addressed sucb a warning to   Great   Britain.
The Times, which is almost alone in
expressed approval of Sir Edmund'*
utterances, goes so far as to regret tbat
he did not add to his excellent speech
an implicit statement of that the fact
the Fasoda expedition will govern
Bahr-el-Gazal basin.
The Daily News, whioh puts the
matter pithily, says: "Sir Edmund
Monsous' speech was either a great indiscretion or ?. deliberate move in a
diplomatic game. If it was the former the situation will become graver.
If it is the latter, th* situation is already graver than it seems.'r
There is little doubt that the speech
will be deeply resented in France,
especially as it was evidently carefully prepared and was read in delivery.
AFTER RANG JfU WEI.
Dowager Empress Orders His   Capture
at   Any Cost.
Pekiu, Dec. 27.���The Dowager Empress is angered at Kang Yu Wei, the
Ohinese reformer, aud is said to have
ordered the minister at Tokio, Japan,
to capture Kang Yu Wei at all costs.
The German minister, Baron Von
Heykitig, has demanded of the Chinese
official thai a German missionary lately maltreated in the Province of Shan
Tung, shall be escorted through the
district by Chinese officials and be
shown especial honors, and that the
Mandarin responsible for the outrage
be degraded. The members of the
Tsung Li Yamen aro groatly perturbed
at the Freuch ultimatum regarding
the missionary held prisoner by the
Czochuan rebels. Thoy declare it impossible to comply with the demands
of France for his release as the Czecbu
anose rebels are beyond control.
MAJOR GENERAL WHEELER.
Washiugton, Dec. 7.���Major General
Wheeler has probably seen bis last
active service in the army. Ho will
be relieved from further active duty
unless the** is a recurrence of war,
but he will remain on the aotive list
of the United States volunteer army
until that army is mustered out of tbe
Borvice by the declaration of peuce.
This privilege is accorded to him in
recognition of his distinguished services.
LIVELY   DEBATE.
It Relates to the Appointment of Senators as Commissiouers.
Washiugton, 7.���The senate had a
long debate in executive session today
upon the subject of the confirmation of
the Hawaiian commissioners. The
debate was started by   Senator  Hoar,
j who made a vigorous protest against
the practice of appointing senators upon such commission. He said senators
were when appointed, acting under
the direction and became th* duly au-
I thorized agents of the president to
carry out bis ideas. What became of
their functions as senators, he asked,
when the report they make, as in tbe
case of tbe Hawaiian commission,
came  before   the senate, a co-ordinate
i branch of government. In the case of
the joint  commission  on  negotiating
in   treaty    with   Great Britain  and
t'le Peace Commission now in Paris
th-re were the same objections, but
applied with greater force, f-tnators
should hold aloof from suoh pi s li >ns
because their acts as commissioners
were to be passed by themselves as
senators, a very reprehensible
practice in the opinion of Mr.
Hoar. He intimated that Senators
cting (or the President on a Commission, which, when dealing with a foreign country had to act as a body,
might be placed in tbe position of
supporting a cause which they as Senator would regret. The method of
appointing Senators on Commissons
was defended by Senators Morgan and
Piatt of Connecticut, who claimed
there was nothing inconsistent in so
doing. Tbe debate then became somewhat general aud the constitutional
prerogative of the President aud tbe
rights of Senators were discussed at
length upon the legal and teobnioal
phase of the subject.
The Senate in executive session today
confirmed the appointment of Hon.
John Hay as Secretary of State.
CLEVELAND'S  VIEWS.
The Former President  Still  Opposed
������   to   Territorial  Expansion.
Princeton, N. J., Deo. 7.���Former
President Grover Cleveland was interviewed today on tbe new policy of the
United States and dictated the following for the Associated Press: "Without going at all into details, I wish
to say that I am ardently onposed to
every feature of this annexation and
expansion policy. The publio ought
to knew pretty well what my convictions are from the Hawaiian question
dnring my administration. I have not
changed my mind and remained opposed to all tbis annexation from the
Hawaii to the Philippines."
TROUBLE   AHEAD
BIG MUNI0IPAL FIGHT IS ON  IN
0HI0AG0.
fifty Year Street Railway Franohise the
Oauseofthe Trouble���Blood May
Be  Shod.
Chicago, Deo. 7.���Tbe fifty year
street rai1���ny franchise ordinance introduced in the oity council Monday
night hae started one of the biggest
municipal fights in the history of the
city, and predictions are freely made
that blood will be shed before the
matter is settled. It is generally conceded that the council will pass tbe
measure. Mayor Harrison has announced hiB intention of vetoing it,
but there is hardly any doubt that it
will be oassed over his veto. Anti
franchise meetings are being held
nightly. The charge Chat boodle will
be used in securing the passage of the
measure, is openly made, some of the
more radical opponents of the measure
asserting tbat it is the street railway
companies intention to distribute several million dollars where the money
will do tbe most good. The following
advertisement appears in all the local
papers with one exception, today :
"Wanted 10,000 strong-limbed and
fearless men. Apply at the City Council Chamber, witb ropes the night the
aldermen attempt to pass tbe fifty
year franchise robbery. Come prepared
to do business.''
The ordinance is opposed almost unanimously by the local press.
THE SUPREME COURT.
Two Cases   Decided   by   Mr.   Justice
Irving.
The cuse of Turner vs. the Kootenay
Air Supply Coiupauy and Lynch came
up yesterday morning before Mr. Justice Irving. After tho plaintiff's case
was in, His Lordship suggested thut
the case might bo settled, aud after
some consultation tbe suggestion was
acted upon.
The next oase was McRae vs. Swerd-
forger before a special jury consisting
of G. Neolunds, W. J. G. Dickson, .1.
Duhamel, Br., J. Duhamel, Jr., II.
Stutter, W. G. Robinson, and W. H.
Bambury. The plaintiff was suing for
a commission and services rendered iu
connection with the sale of tho Eureka mineral olaim near the Nelso*
Poorman mine. The olaim for a commission was disallowed but the jury
returned a verdict for |25 for the services rondored. A. M. Jouhsou appeared for the plaintiff and G. L. Len-
uox for the defense.
Today His Lordship will be occupied in hearing chamber motions, aud

A naval authority, who has been interviewed on the subject, says that
the intention is to make Jamaioa another Gibralter to command tbe canal
and be a rallying point for tbe naval
and military forces of the Anglo-
American alliance, when by dominating both oceans it holds the political
and commercial balance of power in
the hollow of its hand.

dav passed the anti-ticket scalping bill

scalping. The inter state commerce
commission first called attention to
the subject in it* report of 1888 and it
has beeu before Congress ever since in
one form or another. During the last
session extensive bearings were given
both to tbe representatives of th* railroads and scalpers,and Mr. Sherman of
New York secured 17�� pledges for the
measure It was, however, deemed inadvisable to bring the measure forward until the present session. The

the "Silly Bily" of tbe Saturday Review, and the object of tbe joker's wit.
He is acknowledged to be a soldier, a
snilor, a statesman.and we can forgive
one of his hobbies who has suoh abili
ties. He has introduced into empire-
building a spectacular advertising
feature that at times seemtd odd for royalty, but it appears now that there has
always been some sort of method in his
madness. Judging by dispatches, the
Emperor's reception at the opening of
the Reichstag on Monday has a ring of
more true loyalty about it than has
characterized that ceremony for many
years.

THE NELSON LIBRARY.
Eastern visitors to Nelson almost
invariably remark that thejir preconcerted notions of a Western mining
oamp are entirely upset by the sight
of the orderly and prosperous community that is so charmingly situated on
the edge of Kootenay Lake, a favorable impression which ia the result of
the industry and foresight of the business men of Nelson. It remained,
however, for the ladies of Nelson to
put what may be oalled the finishing
touch to our social edifice, by bringing
ont the idea of a public library from
the back ground where it had been
relegated as an impossibility at the
present time, and pushing it to a suo
cessfol issue.
Everybody agreed that Nelson should
have a publio library, but nobody
seemed to take it in hand till tbe
ladies entered into the project with the
energy they are accustomed to display
in all such matters. They formed an
organization, secured the assistance of
some of our leading men, and, before
people at large were thoroughly alive
to what was happening, they had deft
ly extracted a considerable sum of
money form the pockets of their un
suspecting fellow citizens, which will
put tbe undertaking upon a substantial basis.
As announced in yesterday's issue,
rooms have been seoured, a librarian
chosen and the library will probably
be open to tbe public about the begin
ning of the week after next. The com
mittee in oharge has shown a most
wholesome fear of running into debt
thus while there will be a plentiful
supply of papers and magazines from
the first the library proper will be added to from time to time as funds are
available until tbe present very respac
table nucleus of volumes expands into
a large collection, covering all branches
of literature. The choice of books
lies at present with the library
committee, and in making their selec
tion it is to be hoped that works of i
technical nature will not be overlook
ed. While the layman does not care
to plunge into profound treatises on
chemistry, mineralogy and kindred
matters there are many lighter works
dealing with the subjects, which con
tain a great deal of valuable inform*
tion and which would be particularly
sought after in a town like this, where
mines and everything appertaining
thereto form one of the chief sources of
interest and conversation.
The people of Nelson have ft! ready
subscribed liberally to this most inori
torious objeot, but it is to be hoped
that the idea does not prevail that no
more funds are needed. A good lib
rary is an expensive thing, but it is
well worth the money, aud it is, moreover, universally recognized now to be
one of the essentials of a modern city.
The deliberate attempt to defraud the
betting public perpetuated by some of
the principals in the recent fiasco participated in by Corbett and Sharkey
has not apparently had the good effect
that was anticipated for it. That there
was a conspiracy was amply proven by
a newspaper man who, eight hours before the encounter, stated before several witnesses that tho decision would be
given to Sharkey on a foul in the
ninth round���exaotly what happened.
Apponents of the prize ring hailed tbe
result with pleasure; rb they thought
that such'a scandal would drive into
oblivion the men who have so degraded the "manly art" for years. But
still we read of challenges and deposits, and charges and counter charges
and the'generous publio will no doubt
be quite willing to again put their
hands into their pockets to enrich the
coffers of the fakirs. Boxing is a
splendid sport and one worthy of being enoouraged. If men become suffl -
ciently proficient at it as to find it
tbe means of a lucrative livelihood,
well and good, but until they can do
their business on an honorable basis
the public should be less generous with
its encouragement.
JEWELRY !
After a struggle of ten years dura
tion tbe railroads of the United States
yesterday succeeded is securing the
passage through the American House
of Representatives of what has always
been known as th* "Anti-Scalping
Bill." If the bill is finally placed
upon the statute books, thousands of
ticket soalpeis in every part of the
United States will be forced to engage
in other business, unless the Supreme
Court of the United States declares
the law unconstitutional. That it will
be asked to pass upon it there is little
doubt, for the tioket scalpers to the
south of ns have always fought every
effort of the railroads to drive them
ont of business, and if they are beaten
they will go down with their colors
���till flying. Up to date it is a victory
for the railroads.
EDITORIAL COMMENT-
(Winnipeg Free Press.)
One often has to go abroad for in
formation about home matters. We
thought the habits of tbe Esquimaux
or "husky" dog were pretty well un
derstood in the Dominion, but judging
by the following extract from the London (Eng.) Empire, Canadians have
yet much to learn :
"Tbe Esquimaux dog is not difficult
to manage, but unlike the horse or
mule, if he does not get fed he will
occasionally make a meal of his master. This, it is said, was the issue of
a previous postal experiment in Can
ada.''

(Toronto Globe.)
Three buffalo have been seen iu   the
Swan River district.    Although   these
cattle of the prairies are   not  extinct
it will be impossible to  again   restore
them to the plains, even to the   extent
of making them an addition to the list
of big game.    They lack the  timidity
and habits   of   seclusion   essentail   to
survive the advance settlement.     The
buffalo have simply been replaced   tiy
the herds of the ranchers.

H. B. THOMSON DEPENDS THE
BOAED OF Tf.ADE.
He Explains the Aotion of the Board Concerning   the   Ainsworth
. Disaster.
8, There wns n cleun record
at the City Police Court.
BEST ON  EAKTH.
Considerable interest is being
evinced in the city in the action of
the Board of Trade at its meeting on
Monday night in connection with the
Ainsworth disaster. To Mr. Mathews'
statement, .published in yesterday
morning's 'Mirier. Mr. Tlenry Thofti-
son takes exception, uud has handed
the Miner the following statement of
his views:
In your issue today \ Mr. Mathews
writes as follows: "First���Notwithstanding Mr. H.! 13: Thomson's unjust
and indiscreet Rtulemont concerning
the owner of the'Ainsworth."
This matter having coma before the
publio I; feel it calls for an explanation
in order that they may judge of the
"unjust; and indiscreet statement."
To make matters clear I must state as
nearly as possible what transpired at
the Board of Trade meeting in connection with tbe matter. Koine one suggested that/ some interested party
should bring an action for damages
against the registered owner and I remarked '' suppose_there is ^nothing to
him but bis carat's?" meaning supposing, lie had no money. During the .dis-
oussion the question of ownership
came up and IJsaid "thatJit^waBjijen-
erally understood Messrs. Braden Bros,
were the ohief owners'^ofj the.^Aius-
worth, but being American citizens
oould not be registered as owners of u
British bottom and that W. Marshall,
thejpurser, was the registered owner.
I further remarked to the~offect that
was it likely that a' financially.* strong
maujwould take a job of purser on the
Ainsworth? As to4niaking any statement!" concerning W. [Marshall'sJHin-
anoial status' 'I did not and as nearly as
I]oan remmember my wordSjWereJ" the
presumption is a man holding a positioned purser of the Ainsworth would
notjjbej.man oPmeans."
Personally I know nothing of \V.
Marshall's financial position nor dicVJ.l
wish to oast any reflection upon him
whatever. In hisj:eply Mr. Mathews
has very carefully avoided telling the
public who the owner is and my remarks only could'allude to the "registered owner.'' Perhaps Mr. Mathews
would be good enough_to tellj us who
he refers to as the "owner. " Relative
to Mr. Mathews not going to Monday
night's meeting I might say that the
president, secretary and myself, who
talking it over in the afteriiuooufully
understood that Mr. Mathows would be
there and" only a few minutes before
the meeting in answer to an .enquiry,
someone (I forget whom) told me he
thought Mr. Mathews hud gone out of
town. I told the secretary this, consequently we did not ^expect him.
There wns no wish whatever on the
part of tho Board of Trade as far its 1
know to keep Mr. Mathews out and
had he presented himself I feel sure
no one would have raised the smallest
objection to his being there.
All I personally want to see done is
to have the matter mvestigatsd with-
.oui fear or favur,us the disaster, whereby nine uie;i lost il.eir lives, has rightfully caused quite a stir and the fact
of no bodies having been found precludes an investigation by coroner's
inquest,therefore it was a duty to thee
publio. to .have the matter straightened
out, as many conflicting statements
have been made; and I do not think
the publio will think tbe Board of
Trade has exceeded its sphere of usefulness and duty when tbey take up
such a question!! as this oue.
I feel sure we all would likejo have
the disaster satisfactorily proved the
result of acoideut, as I for one have no
���wish whatever to see the blame of so
serious a matter as the death of nine
men fastened to anyone. All we want
is to have an' unsatiBfaotory uncertainty settled.
HENRY B. THOMSON.
Good Hockey Players Have More Than
the One  Accomplishment.
As an indication of just what kind
of stuff successful hockey players are
made of, the following from the Montreal Star correspondent at Winnipeg is
valuable:
The Victoria hockey team, which
will go east to play for the championship of Canada, is the theme of general conversation. In strength it will,
as far as known1 at present, be equal
to anything that has ever represented
ne club on the ice. "Wbitey" Mer -
ritt, the veteran, will play goal; Roddy Fleet, the oarsman, lacrosse expert,
and general athlete, will be point man ;
Ohas. Johnstone, a member of the ex-
ohampion four-oared orew, speed skat<
��r, and laorossist, will oconpy the position of cover point. Tho forward quartette will include Dnn Bain, lacrosse
payer, bicycle racer and general expert ; and A. T. Howard, oaptain of he
team, who won for himself when in
the east the title of "champion shot of
Canada." Hs is an old-time lacrosse
player. "Tote" Oapmbell, who possibly acquired some of his skill from
lacrosse, will play ou one side, and
"Tony" Gingras, who is first a hock-
eyist, and after that an expert man
behind the bat in base ball, will play
the other. Among the spare men will
be R. Benson, who is well known in
Rugby and Association football, rowing and other athletic sports. It will
be an aggregation which the oity may
be proud to own. More than that,
they are all Winnipegers, and learned
to play the game right here.
THE PORTO RICO MINE.
Mr. 0. W. MoArthur hns inst completed his oontract for installing machinery in the Porto Rioo mine. The
maohinery consists of a compressor
plant and a 10-stamp mill complete
with rammers, nil. in ons building.
The plant has been in operation now
for three days, everything working
smoothly and without a hitch. Mr.
MoArthur is a meohaioanl engineer
from Denver, Colorado.
The Hall Mines Company announce
that the result of the smelting operations for the four weeks ending December 2nd, 18 days, seven hours
smelting, was 2,207 tons. It contained
approxiamtely 5H tons of copper and
45,900 ounces of silver.
Comparatively little wood has been
cut this fall, as a large supply of coal
was anticipated. The result is thnt
wood is hard to obtain. It has, moreover, to be brought a long distance
uow-a-days, most of it coming from
Lennox Creek and Robson.
Hiram Braytou, a mining man aged
58 years, died Monday night at the
Sacred Heart hospital, Spokane, of n
complicntion of diseases that will require a post mortem to determine the
exact cause of death. The deceased
has beeu mining iu the north for about
three years. He was a member of the
Masonio fraternity.
At a meeting of the Hospital Lndies
Aid Society, held on Monday last the
following resolution wns nassed : That
n vote of thanks bo tendered to Mrs.
Parry, Mr. and Mrs. Brougham, Mr.
Kydd and niombers of tho Musical
society, for their services in connection with the couoert iu aid of the
Hospital Lndies Aid Society and the
library.
The ladies of the Methodist church
were busily engaged yesterday preparing for their sale of goods which opens today in DesBrisny's old stand on
Bnker street. The stoie hns been very
tastefully arranged and the goods present a very attractive appearance. A
luncheon aud high tea will be served
by the ladies each day at 12 to 2 and
5 to 7. Oysters will be served
at all hours A musical program will
be given each evening by local talent.
Work on the St. Snviour church is
being rushed with nil speed so tha(
the edifice will be in readiness for tbe
opening by Rev. Archdeacon Pentreath
on Wednesday of next week. The ceremony will bo nn impressive one and
a most interesting service is being
arranged. Mr. Frank Oliver, a Rossland vocalist of speudid voice will be
present nnd will sing from Handel's
oratoria, "Judas Macrabeas," "Arm,
Arm Ye Brnve," with the reoitative,
"I Feel the Deity Within."

THE END OF HARDWARE
of poor quality comes soon,    lt hasn't
got the toughness to stand everyday
wear, and succumbs to the inevitable.
Just the same as throwing money to
the dogs when you buy such stuff.
Perhaps the ordinary observer will
say that our Hardware doesn't look a
hit better. But our word is worth
something, and we assure our customers that there is good value in everything we offer.

A TRAIN  ROBBINQ 8TORY.
Tke Srnmmer From New Turk Narrates
a Romantic Experience.
Tbe drummer had just finished reading
a story df a train bold up and let his newspaper fall into his lap.
" 1 hud a rather romantlo experience once
with train robbers," he said, "which I
think I won't evor forget I had been laid
up sick for a week at a tavern in a Kansas
town and my attendant had been a very
sweet and gentle girl, who was a relative
df the landlord. She was suoh a nice girl
that I was in no hurry to get well, and
while I was putting lt off all I oould I was
as Industriously putting on the chains of
love. At the end of ten days I was able to
take up my sample case again, and when
I left the town my gentle nurse was on
the same train, In my charge, bound for
Kansas City, where she was to be met by
friends. I bad never talked love to her,
and I fanoy she didn't suspect me of anything exoept a desire to Qlrt a little, but I
bad made up my mind to talk seriously to
her before I let her friends take her away
from ma
"I fooled along, as most men do under
tbe same olrcumstances, w itlng for a real
good ohance to come in, but before I reach-
ad the proper condition the train oanie to
s sudden stop tn a lonely plaoe, and by the
time we had asked what the trouble was a
halt masked train robber stood in the aisle
nf the oar with a revolver covering the
oontents. The girl turned as white as a
sheet and I thought she would faint but
I told her she wouldn' t be hurt, and she
ut there as if she bad turned Into stone.
As lt happened, I kept my wits, and when
a shot and a shout rose on the air outside
and attracted the robber's attention for a
moment, I whipped my revolver out of my
overcoat pocket and would have got him
sure, but as I brought the gun around the
girl at my side caugbt my arm and stopped me.    I looked at her in amazement
" 'Don'tl' she gasped. 'It's my father!'
And then she fell In a faint, while the robber hurried out in response to the calls
from bis partners.
"As for me," conoluded the drummer,
'I thought probably lt would be just as
well for me not to add to tbe poor girl's
troubles by trying to get Into her family."

ECONOMICAL LIVING.
Sixteen Cents a Day Will Provide Nourishment For a Man.
Sixteen cents a day will feed a man at
moderate work and 18 cents a day is required for food for a woman, says the St
Louis Republic This Is tbe result of experiments begun by Dr. H. 13. Gibson of
the state university and oontlnued after
his death by Professors Sidney Calvert and
David W. May. Many studies of dietaries
were made: The actual amount of food
oonsumed each day and the cost thereof
have been actually determined. Tbe average oost per man per day at the University
Boarding club is 18X cents; of this amount
Mr. May said probably 2 cents' worth Is
wasted. The oost In private families would
be smaller, with less waste.
In summing up tbe results of tbe experiments Mr. May says: "When you buy, go
to the butcher shop and select what you
want. Don't let the butcher select lt for
you. You will soon learn to know the
bast Round steak is, all things considered, the cheapest There are better outs,
but, as a rule, not worth the difference in
price There Is more in the cooking of the
steak than there la in the portion of' the
beef from which lt is out Make your own
bread. It Is far cheaper and should be better. Twenty-five per cent of water Is added to bread in mixing, and water at 6 cents
per pound Is not cheap. A good vegetable
lard Is oheaper aud healthier than hog
lard. Sugar Is a oheap food. Give the
children plenty of it. Beans and peas are
very nutritious and are muscle formers.
Tomatoes are of very little nutritive value

The Fleet Horse In Poetry.
F. S. Dellenbaugh has an article entitled "The quick Horse"' in St Nicholas.
It tells of the trained horses tbat play such
a prominent part in the modern fire department    Mr. Dellenbaugh says:
Mankind loves the horse, for the horse
has been one of man's most valuable aids
and companions in all countries and In all
ages. But there are preferences among
horses. Some are prized for their steady
working qualities���their ability to draw
heavy loads. From time immemorial the
quality of speed bas thrilled humanity and
found an echo In many a stirring poem.
"How they Brought the Good News from
Ghent to Alx" makes the blood tingle In
one's finger tips, and we follow brave Roland across the dawn kissed Belgian landscape with swift anxiety. When Browning
tells us how "Muleykeh's" master, rather
than win back his beautiful favorite by
defeating ber in the pursuit, shouts to the
fleeing thief telling him how to call forth
her highest speed, our hearts go out to
him in sympathy as his pet steed In oonse-
quenoe vanishes forever from his fond
sight. "Sheridan's Hide" wakes us up till
the thunder of hoofs Is mingled with the
rattle of musketry and the cheer of the
rallying troops as tho gallant oommaoder
spurs on to the front In other ballads we
dash with Kit (Jarson over the orisp, dry
prairies with the roaring fire demon in hot
pursuit, or we shoot our animal In "Las-
ca," that stirring poem by Frank Desprez,
and take refuge from the stampeded oattle
beneath his poor body.
A Bad Slip.
One of our village young gentlemen took
his Utile sister with him while calling the
other other evening at a home where be Is
a regular visitor. The little girl made herself quite at home and showed great fondness for one of tbe young ludios, hugging
her heartily "How very affectionate she
1st" said the lady of the house. "Yes, so
like her brother," responded tho young
lady unthinkingly Patorfumlllas looked
sternly over the top of his spectacles, tbe
young gentleman blushed, and the rest
were silent. ��� Shortsville Enterprlsa
