MINING   NOTES.
Mr. D. Hamilton, or Dan
I should say, is doubtless one
of the best all-round placer
miners on the South Fork.
In about six weeks now, he
will be locking up his neat
cabin for a trip to town, and
a quiet game of poker, 10c

water scarcity.
PROV'L POLICE NEWS.
Provincial Constable A-.C. Minty tins been appointed, to act as
a Locitl Board of Health, for the
purpose of carrying out the provisions of the Health Act in tht;
Lillooet District.
Constable Minty has for some
time been investigating the reports sent him about the wholesale slaughter of game in the
Bridge River country by Cliilcotiu Indians nnd others, and tis
the information was found reliable, he wrote the Superintendent of Provincial Police at Victoria; with the result that the
Government has sent Mr. B. T.
Williams, the newly appointed
Chief Game Warden for the province, with headquarters n' 'Vancouver, to go <o Lillooet and
further inquire into the illegal
killing of game during, the close
season as reporU.nl by Mr. Minty,
ou whose suggestion Mr. Williams has appointed a Deputy
in this District, Frederick Johnson, with instructions to «n to
all the places where the game a-
houud, and if he finds any person, lie he Indian or millionaire
white man killing game out of
season, to bring him to Lillooet
and  Imve   the authorities pros
ecute to the limit. It is the opinion of the representatives of the
provincial police that a few convictions, and the extreme penalty of .$100 and costs or 30 days,
or to both fine and imprisonment with hard labor, will be an
introduction into the mysteries
i»f evading the law, and a costly
lesson, especially the imprisonment part of it, is the only way
open to the police department to
teach some men who pride themselves on being immune from the
clutches of the police court, in
regard to the new Game Act of
1905, passed last session of the
Legislature.
Mr. Minty has found it necessary
to place Frank Gott under the
protection of the law, by serving
ail concerned with notices that
intoxicating liquor must not be
furnished. The penalty is severe
and  will  be enforced.
Frank Gott is an expert guide,
a man of friendly disposition,
who has as good a heart as some
who are sober witnesses of his
struggles with King Alcohol. A
sure cure, gentlemen, — a golden
cure, the only cure, is to become
converted. Drink of the water
of life freely, and have pure and
briiiht bodies tor a resurrection.

Nanaimo is to have the kind
of treat that Nanaimo particularly enjoys,—A public debute on
iSoeiiilism vs Single Tax. Tlie
Nanaimo miners, unlike other
men, delight in discussing- politics, und religion. Five vears
ago, they brought Moses Hull,
a, leading Spiritualist, across the
continent, to answer the arguments of a local Clergyman. Tlie
debate occupied -4 evenings, during each of which the opera, house
was crowded, and each side carried off the victory. Night after
night the men assembled, with
ns much interest as if thev had
come to a wrestling-match, and
the points were noted and applauded without hesitation.
The coal-diggers are many of
them from Scotland, where the
ploughmen discuss the doctrines
of freewill and pre-destinatioii,
out in the fields, and their spirit
of criticism seems to have permeated the whole community.
Everybody over in Nanainjo is
ready at a moment's notice .to
argue on Free Tra.de, or Land
Tenures, or Verbal Inspiration,
or anything' else of tin abstract
nature, Lately however that
town has beeu rent by the rise of
two opposing schools of thought,
the Single-taxers and Socialists,
und now to everybody's joy,
champions representing each are
to hnve it (Hit on the platform.
For the Single-tux, Mr. John Z.
White, now lecturing iu Vancouver, will bake the floor ; while
Uie Socialists are bringing* over
from this city, the redoubtable
E. T. Kingsley, the Editor of the
AVestern Clarion, the Socialist
publication. (World.)
From such men as these thinking coal miners, come the great
reforms. Gold miners can never
get away from a sort of curse
that huiigs over the yellow Un-
Necessary.

,T. B. Brandon writes to
a friend in Lillooet, and we
quote in part as follows,—
"The result of the teacher's
examinations, which have
just been published, show
that one of uur students was
successful, viz — Inglis Uren.
David Dickey put up a splen-.
did fight. Altho' vanquished
this time, lie is not conquered, and lie will have.his 3rd
before he returns to Lillooet.
Inglis Uren is to be highly
commended, and 1 hope will
some da}' make liis mark.
Bolli candidates tried, what
some teachers say, the impossible,— that is, doing two
years work in 7 months. This
fact makes Inglis' victory
more praiseworthy.
"Victoria seems to be pushing ahead rapidly, since it
became a C. P. II. town. The
new Motel is going* along in
fine style. The Street Railway has completed work on
a new and beautiful park,
of 20 acres, and every evening, hundreds take the opportunity offered and greatly
appreciate it. A band or an
orchestra is in attendance,
every evening.

The latest way of selling stock is
by measuring with dollar bills. Tho
other day a cow was sold in this
manner and the price determined by
Pleasuring around the animal's body
by SI bills. It only required 11
bills to encircle the cow, and now
tin re is one man in East Flamboro
who will never sell that way again.
Another game is to offer to buy a
liorse I'or the amount of money required to measure it from the tip of
<he nose to the end of the tail, but
instead of measuring up over / the
head and along thc back, the horses
tail is drawn forward between his
hind legs and Jhis head backward
between his forelegs, and it is found
that the distance between the nose
nrd the tail can sometimes be covered by one bill.

thcr. returned to bed, aud "remained
on his back for the next .waive

high jump and diving and swimming
in the intervals of a throe years' reclining—not exactly in bed, but on a
sofa. ■"Where I wont-the spinal couch
went," writes Mr. JVflbb-Pcipfroe. And
to the spinal couch came even the
Cambridge examiners to pass him

MIhotwh In  Milk.
A well-known Grand Ttapids milkman was recently made tlio victim of
a cruel joke by a fisherman friend
who happened to be passing the
milkman's wagon just as that
worthy man was dodp-in_> around the
corner of a house with a bottle of
lacteal fluid, The fisherman had a
pint or so of minnows in an oyster
can. Quickly ho dumped the little
lish into the milk tank and fled. Patrons that mornim? were dazed to
find the finny little fellows in tho
seasoning of their coffee provided by
their faithful purveyor, and nearly
mobbed him beloro the truth came
out.
The interesting fact 1ms lately
come,to the attention of the Government scientists that the frog, the
edible variety, attains its greatest
and best ' development not, as one
would imagine, in the somitiopical
swamps of Florida and Louisiana,
hut in far northern Canada, on the
extreme northern limit at which
these reptiles are found. This bears
out an old and pretty safe rule that
both plants and animals attain their
best development at lhe northernmost point of tbeir habitat. Thus
the diamond back terrapin of the
Chesapeake brings nearly eight times
the price of the diamond back of
Louisiana, and the best oranges are
grown not in tropical Cuba (people
of the older generation still remember the coarse grained, sourish Havana oranges), but in northern Florida, where the trees are- frequently
cut down by the hard frosts and cold
weather.—Washington Post.

THE NAVAL POLICE.
Obscure, Hut F.iuud  011 Kverf l!attleKt_ij»
ot ilie I'.riilsii Sunvy.
Probably the most, obscure police
force in. existence is that known as
the Naval Police, members of which
are- lo be found on every battleship
in the British Navy. Although Bri-
tisb sailors have their own policemen t.o look after them, it must not
be inferred that this state of things
is necessitated by thc bad conduct of
tbe men. As a matter of fact, it. is
not often that the na\ul constable
ha.s to use his powers alloat, but
when 111 port he is always busy in
tho interests of Jack.
The naval constables on every
ship are under tho control of the
master-at-arms, the highest position
in this police force, to which a.
salary of -i-2 2s. d week is attached.
Their duties consist in rualntalli.ng
order throughout the vessel and
guarding the ship's stores. When! a
ship is in port it is not an unknown
occurrence for thieves to slip aboard
unobserved, and tho constable on
patrol has. of course, to prevent
this.
As soon as a ship enters port it is
usual for seamen of good behaviour
to obtain leave to go ashore, and
very often Jack is so lost in the enjoyment of his little holiday that he
fails to return to his vessel at the
appointed time. The naval constables then row ashore, and, having apprehend the deserter, take him back
to his ship, when he receives a light
sentence from the master-at-arms for
his thoughtlessness.
But yithal the naval polico are always popular with the men, Who
know well enough that they never
make trouble unless there is just-
cause for it. On the other band,
they sometimes rescue .Jack, .11'trr a
tough fight, from the haunts of
lundsharks to which ho has been
lured, as often as not displaying'he
most remarkable courage on his bo-
half.
Another reason for the popularity
of these police is that they are really sailors themselves, and have Served on the lower deck for throe years
as ordinary seamen before being promoted to corporal of police. Furthermore, they must have a clean conduct sheet and be indefatigable workers, while to distinguish them they
are allowed to wear the letters "N.
IL" on their sloevpa.

A WhIIoiI Town in Britain.
tn the old days when might was
right the city that, was walled about
was common enough, but there are~
vory few towns in Briiain which
preserve their walls at the present
day. Of those few, undoubtedly the
most unique is Berwick-upon-Tweed,
the old Border town, which has occupied many a page of the past history of the United Kingdom, and
which to this very day enjoys tho
distinction of special mention as a
plane apart from the United Kingdom in every Royal proclamation issued. Here tho old battlements built
in the time 01 Queen Elizabeth remain intact, with all but one of
the ancient gateways, and even in
some cases the very pondorous gates
themselves on their old rusty hingCB.
In reality there are too walls, the
outside and older one, of which now-
only some fragments remain standing^ dating back to tho far-off times
of Edward the First, who in the
great hall of Berwick Castle—only a
small part of which now remains-
decreed that Baliol should be King
of Scotland, a decree which, as every
schoolboy knows, was soon set at de-
lanee by the Bruce and his hardy
Marriois. On this outer line of tho
ramparts still stands the tower in
which Ow warning notes of the war
t-cll wore rung to denote the approach of an enemy, an object naturally of great interest to u'l visitors to the town.
