The Slocan is a hard place upon j ine up the gulch. It has been going

ner, we cannot help thinking what
the result would be it a ton of it took
a notion to make a few remarks
[while passing our editorial parlor.
If such a thing should occur The
Paystrbak office would be moved,
and no doubt the paper would not
come out this week. This would be
a doublo calamity and we will not
ponder on the subject any further.
The editor ot the B. C. news has
undertaken to run a ''moral" weekly
in Kaslo. He will probably get his
reward in heaven.
Notwithstanding that no move has
been made to construct the Crows
Nest road from Kuskonook to Nelson,
the C. P. R. is tryiug to collect the
bonus and land grant for this proposed piece of road as well as ior that
which has been built; and if former
experiences of the Dominion government's dealings with this corporation are any criterion the C, P. R.
will get all it asks.
It was not only glory that detained
the Khalifa at* Omdurman. His
treasure, buried in tbe sands of the
neighboring desert has been dug up.
The tourvaille amounts to ��10,000,
000. On top of this comes the announcement thst Gen. Sir Herbert Kitch-
ner will retire on an extraordinary
pension. The Sirdar's eyesight is
said to be affected. No wonder.
Ten million pounds would dazzle
The Spaniard cannot sympathize
with the indignant citizens of the
United States demanding an investigation. He has troublds of his own.
The war, it is reckuned, has cost
Spain four thousand million pesetas.
And Cubi, in the words of Senor
Romero Giron, "has been an immense
abyss, in which hundreds of millions
have vanished. ��� Twenty-two thousand sick are coming home from Cuba
and Porto Rico, snd tbe government
has only 10,000 beds. Tbe Spaniards
from these islands desiring repatriation will be shipped back to Spain
free of cost. Altogether, it is a sorry
outlook for the Spaniard.
Locomotives for Russian railways
are in brisk demand, and it is stated
that an order for 550 locomotives ot
American types has been placed
with the Putlov works, at St. Petersburg. Fifty of these will be express
and the remainder freight engines.
The long distances to be run and the
relatively slow speed of Russian service requires an exceptionally large
number of locomotives. About the
latter part of August seventy-seven
complete American locomotives were
received for the Russo-Chlnese road;
fifty of these came from the Baldwin
works and the balance from other
American builders. A large number
of freight engines is* still required
for the Siberian roads, together with
railway supplies of sil kinds, and
large orders are expected to be placed in United States during November.
When D. C. Corbin offered to build
a road into the Boundary country
without asking a cent of bonus, Mr.
Van Home said that it would not be
loyal to give tbe chatter to a foreign-
er, and set a glorious example of
loyalty by bringing twenty-Ave
French-Canadian members, at a
stated sum per head, np to Ottawa in
his private car to vote Corbin off the
earth. In order to somewhat pacify
the people of the West Mr. Van
Home pledged his company to build
the road without a bonus. The C.
P. R. it now redeeming that pledge.
The provincial treasury haa been
tapped for 1400,000 to help build tbe
Robsoo Penticton road. ������BUI" Par-
ker had to give up half hia townsite
at Brooklyn to the contractors before
a drill was struck. L. A Hamilton,
Land Commissioner for the C. P. R.,
recently made a trip through the
Boundary country. His visit cost
the owners of Cascade City half their
townsite. Greenwood's owners were
taxed the same amount for the privilege of. having the railroad built
through their town as surveyed. The
Grand Forks townsite company had
to put up 15,000 for a right of way
and a one-third interest in sil the
unsold lots, which means several
hundred acres of very valuable land.
There are several other towns springing up in the district which Mr.
Hamilton will take care of for his
company just as soon as the real
estate begins to have a value. Loyalty cornea  high, but  it seems  we
must have it at any price.

Territorial Journalism.
There aeems to be a popular idea
that the editor of a country rag
should praise up everything indis-
criminstely. He is expected to use
the word "prosperous" in reference
to the country, (especially after a
frost that has killed everything
deader than a string of maekerelh
he must always apply the worn
"genial" to the storekeepers, (who
advertise and pot up tbe cigars once
in a while) -, call the hotel proprietor
(to whom he owes a heart breaking
board bill) a jovial booifaee ; refer
semi facetiously to a young store
elerk friend (whose sister is distract
ingly pretty) as the rising young
man ol tbe town; tire postmaster of
course must always be "genisl" snd
the preichers, if not referred to
occasionally as "worthy divines,"
will wax 'so wrsthy thst they sre
liable to get back at you from the
pulpit some Sunday and ahow you
up in your proper light, which would
be highly inconvenient. And as for
the C. P. R. (O, bury me on the lone
prairie!), although they sre the
alpha and omega, the first and the
last, the middle snd sil the sides, the
inside snd outside, the life, tbe
breath, the nostrils, the tentacles, the
tendrils, tbe bovalupis, tbe Injgey
and the barbed wire fence of thia
ot this country, we are expected to
eall them ��� -genisl" slso. And vet

A lovelorn youth had quarreled
with his ladylove, and with bitter,
angry words they parted. Deciding
that life was not worth living, he
turned abruptly into a barberNhop,
took a seat in a vacant chair and
calmly requested the tonsoria! artist
to cut hia throat.
Tbe barber acquiesced with a nod,
and tucking the cloth round his
neck, fixed the head rest so that the
customers chin wss well elevated.
Then, drawing a stout pin from the
corner of his waistcoat and holding
it firmly between his linger and
thumb, Ire drew the point quickly
across the man's neck.
With a scream worthy of a Comanche Indian the despairing one leaped
from tbe chair, shouting:
"Surely, surely you have not done
"Oh, no sir!" said the barber.
"Sit down again, sir. I've only just
marked it out"
The railways of India, on March
31, 1898, aggregated 25,454 miles
open and sanctioned, of which 21,15b*
miles were open for traffic, leaving
4,208 miles under construction or
authorized. Thia was a neat increase of 766 miles over the length ofj

The U. S. Government is feeding
the hundreds of destitute men who
ventured too far into the Copper River
country in the wild hunt for gold.
Many thousands have learned, and
are learning, since the ravages of the
gold craze began, that common sense
is a commodity more to be sought
after even than gold. It is a sadly
positive fact that many human beings
are as destitute of one as the other.
Speaking of tombstone epitaphr. we
are reminded of one S3en in an old
cemetery some years ago. The
grave waa situated in a shady corner
and the headstone was moss covered
and water-streaked by the storms ot
many winters, all of which added
solemnity to tbe wording of the epitaph. It ran: "Sacred to the memory of Richard Roe. Erected by hia
wife. He waa a printer���pray for
New York is a city of fads and
pads. Tbe newest fsd is in the photograph line. The fancy originated
in Cairo, Egypt, and was brought to
New York by one of the society belles.
It is to have your picture token while
in a mummy ease. Tbe subject steps
into the case, the lid is then closed,
leaving an opening just lsrge enough
for the lace. Our local photographer
disclaims any idea of laying in a
stock of mummy cases.
Despatches from Buffalo, N. Y.,
tell of a novel suit for damages that
has been taken into court. Two
women quarreled. One accused the
other oi wearing pads, and the other
claims to have been slandered to the
tune of $101000. One tact is demons-rated by the action brought, and
that is, that while pads may have
been promiscuously worn by tho
accused there is one point on her
anatomy that does not need boosting.
The nerve centre Is well developed.
Fast and surely the United States
is becoming a land of monopoly.
There Js the lead trust, iron trust,
transportation trust; the coal trust,
licht trust, machine trust; the oil
trust, sugar trust, money trust; the
whiskey trust, beer trust, paper trust;
the lumber trust, wire trust,glass trust
���and now follows the floor trust. All
the big flour mills of the country are
belnn bought up. If the weather
clerk would join hands with these
tremendous powers of evil they
would have the immortal cinch on
our much abuse cousins.
The Ancient Order of Forresters of
America  and it officers arc being
sued by Hugo Heidom of Tacoma,
Waah., for damages in the snm of
$15,000 for injuries alleged to have
been inflicted upon him whilst being
initiated intu the order. He claims
that he waa treated to an electrical
current so strong as to paralyze him
and produce lasting injuries. Such
complaints are beoomrng of frequent
occurrence. While the initiatory
work of most secret orders is elevating
and tending to build up and strengthen the moral fiber of man. there is
so much nonsense drawn into the
ceremony tint the good effect is lost
in the superabundance of boy's play.
Speaking of the proposed $500
duty on Chinamen that British
Columbia would impose, the Toronto
Telegram says: "In the east the al
mondeyed celestials sre looked on
more or less as curiosities. They
run laundries, and are carefully
looked after by people with missionary instincts. In the west it isdiff
erent The celestial has crowded
himself into various branches of work,
till he has become a positive menace
to white labor. He Is a keen competitor In the labor race, his ability
to subsist on anything or nothing
giving bis white opponent a heavy
handicap. In tbe cities of British
Columbia are the Chinese quarters
where thousands of them, crowded
together tn filth, breed pestilence or
serve aa a roosting spot for any disease that may be passing. The proposition to put a $500 duty on esch
Chinaman entering the country
comes from these cities. It comes
from the people who know the China
men best''	
The law governing the issuance of
expired miner's certificates so as to
date from the day of expiration is ma
so well understood as it ought to be.
Under the old law if one's miner's
certificate expired for a single dsy,
all title to uncrown granted claims
lapsed, and the only thing for the
prospector to do was to get a new
license and relocate such ground aa
waa open to location. The statutes
psssed last winter changed this snd
mm if one's license inadvertently expires relief is possible. All that Is
necessary is to prat in the office of the
mining recorder notice of intentlor. to
adjust the matter, and at the same
time to lorward to the minister of
minea a statement of the facts in the
case, accompanied by a fee of $5
The minister of mines thereupon
issues a new certificate dited hack
to the time thst the first certificate
expired. If, between the time that
the first certificate expired and the
time that notice of intention to apply,
for relief U posted, any of the applicants property has been relocated,
no remedy is possible. On the other
hand, relocations of the applicant's
ground made by oiier people after
he haa posted his notice of Intent to
apply for relief, are not valid.
Another part of the law that is
little understood is Section 24 ss
amended. This provides that If the
assessment work is done on a claim
within the year and the work is not
recorded during such period because
of oversight or otherwise, the holders
of sach property shall be allowed a
further extension of 80 days In which
to record the work, provided a fee ot
$10 is paid. This ��>day extension
la not allowed tn which to do the
work, as some suppose, but simply to
record, and the work mn-t be done
within the year a* provided in the
section before amended.

Plans are in process of formation for
the construction of another large smelter
in this district, and the indications are
that work on tiie construction will be
commenced before winter sets in.   The
works will iu all probability be located
at Savward, on the Columbia river,
near the international boundary, says
the Iios>laud Miner.
At present it cannot be stated positively whoare at the back of the scheme,
but taste are fairlv good grounds for
the belief that friends of the Great
Northern railway are promoting it
The final indication that a smelter
would be built at Savward was revealed
last Saturday, when James Breen, manager, and H. C. Bellinger, superinrend
ant < f tlu* Northnort smelter, made a
erwful.survey of the country in that
vi nity On the morning of that��� day
Messes Breen and Bellinger arrived at
Waneta OS the early train from North-
port, and si*curint.' a boat proceeded to
Fort Slieppard Their investigation was
evidently without satisfactory results
for they shortly afterwards returned to
Waneta, and, engag-ing horses, posted
off to Savward. a few milesdistanr.!  Ar-H
I five, when the pangs of hunger drove
us to desperation, we shot a horse and
lived on horse flesh, and uo meat ever
tasted nicer. In one place for five miles
I counted 100 dead horses, and Indians
told of men who had laid down and
died, starved to death rather than eat
the halt famished beasts of burden who
had helpe*'. them patiently to wallow
wearily through mud and mire until
death was longed for as a release from
their trials. In one case we passed
through a forest of soggy moss, with
not a vestige of underbrush. We had
no feed and tied the horses to trees,
where they choked down great wsds of
moss aud dirt and small tree branches.
"The do miles of moss was the scene
of a thousand horrors. Coming out of
the soggy forest, we struck poison
plains, so named on account of devil
weed covering the ground. The stench
is awful, for horses lie heaped in hundreds, who have died fr >m eating the
poisonous vegetable here growing in
rank profusion. The weed contains a
thorn which sticks in the horses'
stomachs and kills them.
"Further on we arrived st quicksands with dense iorests on each side
that we could not penetrate Then
there wore quagmires with hones in
rows dead with the packs still on their
backs.   It is the solemn truth that our
Karty of 20 led our horses over the
acks of the poor buried brutes. Beyond- this we came to a tree on which
was blazed: 'Eat here and turn back ;
just beyond is the slough of despond.'
For two awful, weary miles we trudged
wearily ou. our horses actually at
times up to their backs in mud, with
their noses stuck in the awful omnipresent ooze. One after the other we
dragged them out and put a bullet
through their beads To make matters
worse", it rained for 10 days and nights.
Along the road were strewn hardware,
blankets, rifles, cartridges���every conceivable part of a Klondiker's outfit
thrown aside by heart-broken, half-distracted wayfarers.

Shortly before the steamer Amur
sailed southward one of tho Klondike
millionaires reached Skagway. The
new-comer was a Pole named M. W.
Danijlovich, and he is said to own wine
very good mines ou Bonanxsaud Eldorado, and says he has 38 men at work
tor him. paying his men $10 per day
He is a young man, only 27 years old.
and landed in Alaska six years ago
penniless; now he has no idea of how
much he is worth. He owns a flue
house in San Diego, which he bought
two years ago. paying #25,000 therefor,
that is now occupied by his aged father
aud mother who came from Poland to
share their son's prosperity. The story
he tells of his experience reads more like
a tale from the Arabian Knights than a
nineteenth century possibility.
Six years ago in Poland the young
man grew restless for new scene*, and
finding a man who was coming across
the country iu a dog team he induced
him to permit him to accompany him
The man and the bo? crossed Sitieria in
the dog team, landing finally on the
shores of Behring sea, the trip occupying about four moo tin). They made
their way across Behring straits iu a
native Esquimaux boat and travelled
down the coast until they tame to the
Yukon river. Here Danijlovich poled np
the river until he reached Obese City,
which he made his headquarters When
he arrived there he had only a few cents
in coin and a handful of beans aud a
little bacon. He was on the point of
despair when an old miner gave him a
sack of flour. In a short time he found
work, and since then his experiences in
and about the new gold fields has been
a marvellous one from a money making
point of view. He was among tbe first
to rush to the new gold fields of the
Klondike, and secured some very fine
properties. Two years ago he came our
of the country with about *"*>.<�� *>, with
his holdings not even properly o'icned
up. Last year he paid the Canadian
government in royalties 8i"��,<����i go that
he must have taken out about fib >,U0u
in gold.
Twovearsago Danijlovich sent for
his old father and mother and told rhem
to come to America. He sent them |0tai
to pay their fare to San Francisco
When the old couple arrived loCsH-
fornia they were taken to San Diego
snd found there u home for which their
son had paid $.'*>.U00, and which WSS
being cared for hy a competent corp*
of servants It would probable be an
impossible rask to truthfully describe
tbe eonfiirtinir emotions of the old couple
at hnilin/ themselves thus suddenly
surrounded by such princetv evidence*!
of wealth.
"I have had six years of experience
in Alaska nnd now' I think I have had
enough." said the young man at skay
way. "I will remain inside this winter
and work my claims and then I will sell
and occupy the rest of mv davs in
leisure nnd following the bent of mv inclinations "
Danijlovich���and he pronounces his
name ns thoutrh it were spelled "Dan
eills'���had his eye-teeth cut in Alaska
among the old miners long before be
came out from tbe interior. Althnutrh
he arrived al Circle Citv a greet! Polish
boy just from the fields of a Russian
.arm. he was not lorn/ iu loarn'ng the
American ways and American manners.'
When he came out with his first big
batch of yrold he was very cautious and
careful of hfs conduct and was not nm
hinted, except once and then he was in
Portland while on hia way to San Francisco He and his companion were held
up by footpads, but they put Up a fight
and footpads and victims were arrested
The footpads were sent to the penitentiary and after that the Klondiker was
more cautious than ever
"When I was in San  Francisco that
time after my experience in Portland."
said Danijlovich. "I saw an old man in
��� a hotel.   I know I had seen him before
and finally 1 remembered who he was.
I walked up to him and asked him:
"Do vou know me?"
**\o   bo said.
"Dont vou remember a boy you gave

Full of Deception.
The world is full of deception.   It
is found .everywhere,  and seems to
be Inseparable from   human  existence.    When we are young and innocent we take everything for granted,
but as age advances we learn that
things are not always as they seem.
We find out that often a woman who
looks like an angel is only made up
with paint, cotton and  other trifles.
We also find that some fellows deal
from tlie bottom when they appear
to slide the cards from the top of the
deck.   Booze often travels under in
alias and has its spirit dampened to
a whisper by aqua pure. The parson
tells about a hell where ice water has
never been located, and we bave to
croak to prove the truth of his assertion.   The doctor looks wise, says
you have cxpendicetis, or something
else with a hugh name, gives you a
a piece of paper with some Latin on
it, pockets a fee, and you do the rest.
The lawyer tells you  you  are  all-
right * You .ire sure to win tbe case,
if you will only retain his services.
The editor assures you that his paper
has the largest circulation on earth,
when he  knows deep down in his
heart that he lies.   Thus it Is all
along the line, but the greatest deception of all is to fool a man on his
grub;   that  is,  the  material   with
which he feeds the inner roan,  the
hungry cuss who  always chews the
lining of your stomach if you do not
satisfy him.   We once, in this great
and silvery  Slocan  country,   sasr
those welcome words, "Lanib with
Mint Sauce," on an elaborate menu
in a fine restaurant.   We had trav
clled for many miles to  once more
feast on  such  a  dish.    When the
polite waiter set it down in front o fus
and we discovered that it was mutton,
43 years of age, can you feel surprised when we  mention  the  fact that
oar last hope in the truthfulness  of
hnman nature went up the flume.
Mutton,  so old,   and  yet  we had
thought it was the nice, gentle gentle J
spring Iamb we were fed upon before
t're Slocan hills  had hardened  our
teet, and���well that is all.   Decep
tion and Slccau lamb are brothers.

J. N. McDonald,
paper man, was in
a Nelson news-
town this, week.
Mac has had a varied career since
he taught school awap back in Lfsto-
well. He made a small fortune out
of a newspaper when the booin was
on in the Territories, and put his
money into farming. We have heard
of fanners^tarting newspapers, but
it is seldom that an editor meets the
melancholy fate of becoming a
farmer. Mac procured a fine, healthy
ranch near Moose Jaw, hired some
men and started in to make a fortune
in wheat. He la laired in Regina to
keep down expenses on the farm.
For a time all looked well. The
wheat In the early days of summer
oromiscd to reach a * ripe old age,
and Mac could see thousands ahead
dfhim. But the hot winds blew
across the land, the wheat grew ill,
died, and Mac's dream of wealth
pinched to a mere recollection.�� He
was compelled to allow the ranch to
wear weeds while he wandered into
Kootenay, satisfied to raise nothing
but his salary, arrd wonder why he
ever tried farming.
