inn and fold by public auction all the

Can Itev* all th* Tlmbor.
An Ottawa despatch says that the
Government has granted settlers in
British Columbia all timber on their
holdings. Heretofore only 25 acres was
allowed. Mr. Aulay Morrison is
credited with having been instrumental
in bringing this about.   It is hinted that
The B. C. group of mineral claims, or
the Cayoosh Creek Mines on Oayoosh
creek, opposite the Golden Cache Mines
Were restaked a couple of times by par*
ties last Tuesday morning, The bead
office of the Cayoosh Creek Mines ia at
Vancouver and they own seven claims,
four full and three fractions. Word .km
sent to C. T. Diamond last week to Record the assessment work lor th* past
year. On looking up the record* it was
found that the claims had run out, ul
though the company had done considerable work and had the claims surveyed.
Mr. Diamond returning from tne Mission Saturday evening and not being
able to go over the records and not knowing the claims had expired, sought Major Burnet, the surveyor, who knows
considerable about the claims in that
section, to find out the names of the
claims in the group. On Monday on
looking up the records it was found that
tbe claims Lad run out. Major Burnet
in conversation with A. W.Smith, M. P.
P., told him about, tbe matter and that
the claims had run out. Mr. Smith at
once seen Wm. McDonald who left town
that evening to restake the ciaims. Mr.
McDonald was on the ground in good
time and staked claims. Mr. Diamond
with H. Attwood left town six o'clock
Tuesday morning, but on arriving at the
claims  found  they   had   been  staked.
Major Burnet also with an assistant
was on the ground about the same time
and also staked the group, ar he claims
on the line of the survev.
Mr. McDonald it is claimed staked
four claims taking in part of the B. C.
claim and the adjoining one and running
down which leaves part of two of the
claims and two full ones left on the group.
The gronnd below the B. C. which was
staked, was taken up some time ago, and
if reports are correct the parties in
whose names the claims were restaked
will lose that portion.
Both parties believe they have the
right to the claims and the matter will no
doubt ba settled iu due course of time.
The Cayoosh Creek Mines is an incorporated company and had disposed of a
number of shares and while it is regretted that they have lost their claims
after doing sj much work, the fact rests
that the work should have b-en recorded
in time. The claim* ran out about one
month ago and nothing was done.
Moral—Tell no one when your claim
runs out or that you intend restaking,
you will loose it. Do not deal from the
bottom of the pack in black-jack, but it
is all right in mining?

An Ottawa despatch says: The bill
proposed by Mr. Mills in the senate to
amend the criminal code provides a large
number of changes, principally on matter? which have been brought to the attention of the government from time to
time by women's associations and labor
organizations. Some of the changes
were proposed in 1807 by Sir Oliver
■tlvfowat ana were rejected by the senate.
It is intended, for instance, to amend
the law in the case of the seduction of a
tiirl under 16 years of aire by striking out
" of previous chaste character." It will
not be necessary to prove this to obtain
a conviction. It is also proposed to aid
" shop girls and domestic servants " to
those of factories and workshop, making
it an indictable offence for any foreman
or employer seducing any one of these
in his employ. This waB rejected by the
tenate in 1897.
The subject of lotteries is also dealt
with, and where such are permissable
for the encouragement of work of art the
pictures must be delivered and the option that a money prize may be taken
instead is done away with.
Section 520, in regard t-> combinations
is changed so that it will not apply to
workmen who will not combine for their
own protection.
Burglary is also made an offence punishable by the lash.
In respect to selling obscene picture ihe
word "publicly" is omitted so that those
who make a sale whether privately or
publicly can be punished. There are a
number of other important changes.
The Height of Impudence.
The folio .vine incident which actually
occurred, quite recently, will take some
heating for barefaced cheek. A 'lady'
living in one of the best neighborhoods
of Southport ordered some very expensive mantles and jackets to be sent to
her on approval, but distinctly wished
them not to be delivered until Saturday
afternoon. Of course, expecting it would
lead to business, a choice selection was
despatched to her exact commands.
Monday morning arrived and about ten
o'clock the approbation parcel was
brought in, with a very polite note, saying Mrs.— was extremely sorry, but
nothing 6ent met with approval,
apologizing for the trouble, etc. The
goods were taken out of the paper,
brushed, and folded in tbe ordinary way,
but in doing so, in the pocket of a very

Beer Drinking as an Act.
We Canadians are so much custi med
to hear the practice of drinking beer and
other beverages, malt, vinous andBpirit-
ous, denounced as a sin, that it iR_ boitip
wliat refreshing to see the subject treated
from a new and novel standpoint. It
was so treated by professor lvoester,
principal of the university of lionn, in a
recent address to the students.
Beer-drinking by German students is
carried te great excess, Drinking bout*
are matters of every day occurrence, ami
sometimes thev end only when one sidi
or the other is under the table. Professor Koester objects to these excesses,
buthe bases his objection en theground
that they v.olate tne rules of good taste.
Hen is pari of his advice to the students:
"Drinking i* advantageous for tin
enlivement and refreshment of the
organism ; it widens the heart and the
brain. It is likewise profitable to tin
social organism when it, adds to its
cheerfulness and health * * In the
rules of drink there is charm and witchery just as in the ttiles of poetry and of
the arts. .Inst as in poetry rhythm ami
metre give to slow words energy and
motion so do the metrical rules of dunking give a flow and an animation, an
intellecual mobilization to the spiritual
life of the. drinking bout to which
students are directed. But metre is tie

Here is food for reflection by our Canadian advocates of total abstinence and
prohibition. Instead of putting themselves in opposition to other people's

utilize that thirst as to make it the

The oration, as it appeared the following week in the local paper, was as follows :

A maiden lady of a certain town in
Cornwall, owned a parrot, which somehow acquired the disagreeable habit of
observing at frequent intervals, " I wish
the old lady would die." This annoyed
the bird's owner, who spoke to he curate
about it. "I think we can rectify the
matter," replied the good man. " I also
have a parrot and he is a righteous b:rd
having been brotfght up in the way lie
should go. I will lend you my parrot,
and I trust his influence will reform
that depraved bird of yours." The curate's parrot was placed in tiie same
room witii the wicked one, and as soon
as the two had become accustomed to
each oilier, the bad bird remarked, "I
wisli the old lady would die," wlieie-
upon the clergyman's bird rolled  up his
  iccents,   added,
We beseech the to hear us, good Lord."
The story got out in the parish, and, for
several Sundays, it was noceesary to
