Wilson in Vancouver. If the surprised folk had taken the trouble
to see what the working meu were
thinking by consulting the columns
of the Independent they would not
have been so astonished. Among
other things endorsing Wilson the
Independent says:
"We like Hon. Charles Wilson
the more for the enemies be is now
making. The latest aggregation to
denounce him is the Rossland
Miner, baoked up by Spokane
grafters. Every workingman in
the province remembers the stand
the Miner took in the great miners
strike a few years ago. The
Miner supported the late Provincial Seoretary in the last general
eleotion, now it oppoaea the Attorney-General. Workingmen, vote

It is with gratification that Robs-
landers will learn that the experiments whioh have been made with
the Kootenay ore at the Spokane
mill which is being run under the
Hendryx procesB have been so far
entirely successful. To make assurance the experiments are being
continued for in so vital a matter
great care has to be exercised.
Already, however, a plant has been
ordered for the Waterloo mine in
Camp McKinney and it is more
than likely that the spring will see
one of these new mills going up in
Rossland.
There is one part of the process
which will insure its success here,
which ia that it takes very little
woter .ferriS it. This, in thet present tangled condition of the water
rights, will recommend it to the
varioua mine managements which
are interested in this method of
solving the problem of the reduction of our iron ores.
Generally speaking there ie little
news in the older mines. The
White Bear has discovered a new
body of ore which is likely to prove
second to little in that mine, the
Jumbo is fast demonstrating that
the day ia approaching when a
short railway spur will have to be
run into the mine, the Elmore prooess is daily a more and more assured success and the working out
of the little practical details in its
connection is about all that remains
to do. Altogether the outlook for
the winter and especially the outlook for the Bpring was never better than at any period in tbe short
hiatory of Rossland.

Beard of Warka Decision on tha Lata
Fir* on  Columbia Avenue.
It is generally thought that a
council committee has no authority
to deal with any matter which has
not been referred to it by the city
oounoil itself. This, however, is
apparently a mistake, as it ia reported that the board of works in
session laat evening took up the
queation of the rebuilding of the
upper portion of the block whose
roof was destroyed in the fire of
last week. Alderman Armstrong,
the chairman, was absent, but that
mattered little, as the mayor was
present to deal with the trouble.
At first Alderman MoKichen and
Talbot were in favor of the repairing, Alderman Dunlop and Mayor
Dean opposing, but after hearing
argument (Mayor Dean's) the first
named alderman changed his
opinion and if the board of works
have any authority in the matter,
and if the oity counoil is to be
passed over, the caBe ia settled
against Empey Brothers.
It waa urged that the repairs
were not over the limit allowed and
that in the present state of the city
and of the season, it were well
nigh impossible to rebuild in brick
under the fire limit bylaw. It might
have been urged that the precedent
established by the mayor himself
when he was chairman of the
board of works some years ago
might be allowed to govern the
case, or even the case of the Clifton.
It will be remembered that this
gentlemen practically rebuilt the
whole of the block which he ia now
ocoupying, doubling it in size, and
raising it one story from the
ground, and all after the passage of
that very bylaw for the narrow interpretation of whioh he is at tbe
present time, a muoh worse time
both financially and seasonally, so
great a stickler.

During the recent bye election
Vancouyer, J. A, Macdonald,
speaking in behalf of the Liberal
candidate, spoke strongly on the
coal licence question, and has thor*
oughly defined what he oonoeives
should be the Liberal position.
The Conservative organ in the city,
the News-Advertiser, Bought to
minimize ihe force of hiB remarks
ae far as they applied to the MoBride government, by pointing out
that it had itself, anterior to Mr.
Maodonald's references, critioiaed
the granting of these licences to
Spokane speculators, showing that
no suoh similar privileges were
granted to Canadian citizens in
Washington by the government of
that atate. Mr. Macdonald is
quoted as follows:
"I understand the government
intends to grant some of these. I
say they ought to be refused. It
would have been far better that the
Canadian Pacific railway should
have had these two blocks than
that they Bhould go to these men.
I understand that since the general
election the government bas issued
67 licences to a Spokane Syndicate.
I dou't believe in having our territory annexed. We have lost enough
territory in that direction recently,
without losing any more. In faot,
I believe that one of the men who
sat on the Alaska boundary tribunal, who Bat there presumably as
an arbitrator, but really aa an advocate, is interested iu these Spokane licences."
Mr. Macdonald also stated that
one of the men who had staked
claims in East Kootenay openly
boasted that he owned more coal
and oil lands than the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal company, which owns
the valuable areas in the district
from which the company takes its
name. He had, during the recent
elections in Rossland, put the matter squarely to his opponent, Provincial Secretary Goodeve, whom
be defeated. He had asked if the
government had the discretion to
refuse these licences, and if bo,
would it use it? He had failed to
receive an answer from Mr. Goodeve, but had learned that the latter
had given a letter to one of the locators saying that lie was willing
to grant the licences to every man
who complied with the conditions.
Mr. Goodeve had shown that letter
to Premier McBride, who said that
would stand by it.

" Splendid 1" exclaimed the Bride.
"Why, when I want to experiment
with a new cook book she take

MINING NEWS
What Is Being Done  Outside the Province
MIXING ALL OVER THE WORLD
Soribner's Magazine for November is not a particularly noteworthy number, although it is as
well edited and well illustrated
as ever.
Frank Leslie's Monthly contains
a good article on that peculiarly
American institution, the "lobby."
The lobby at Washington, D. C,
is that which is specially dealt
with, and the article specifies general the evils which are attendant
upon the political system by which
the great trusts and corporal ions
are cementing their hold upon the
public, thereby gaining control of
all sorts of privileges which should
belong to the people, and the manner in which this end tends to
debauch the legislature of ■ the
country and the whole system of
government.
The current number of the Overland Monthly is a chatty little
issue, and has a number of interesting little articles and some short
stories.
Lippencott's for November has
a good story "The House Divided,"
by B. M. Tybout, for its chief
feature, and a number of the usual
short stories, making up altogether
a representative issue.
The Saturday Evening Post for
November 14, contains a remarkable article, entitled "Britain's
Bread," by W. C. Edgar. This
writer takes up an extraordinary
pisitiou. He sa>B "Americans
consider Canada, India, Australia,
and the United Kingdom as fiscal
entities—separate commercial nations. Acting separately their
tariff laws are their own affair, and
cannot logically be resented, so
long as the United States naain-
tains its present trade business.
Should they aot jointly, however,
and imposo a tax on American
wheat aud Hour, while admitting
colonial products free, it iB inconceivable that thiB country would
not regard the arrangement as a
combination formed lor its harm,
practically a declaration of commercial warfare." Tiio absurdity
of this position is at once apparent
if the lirst sentence ba reversed
and made to read 'Britons consider,
Washington, California, Ohio,
Massachusetts, etc., as fiscal entities—separate commercial nations.' The banding together of
those separate states or colonies
was not regarded hy the world in
general as an arrangement formed
for its harm, but rather for tho
commercial good of tho states combined. Imitation is tho eincerest
form of flattery, and really Mr.
Edgar ought to bo pleased instead
of angry with the subtle compliment which Mr. Chamberlain is
paying his country. Mr. Edgar's
remedy or reply, by the way, is for
the American farmers to refrain
shipping wheat to Great Britain:
and so starve it into submission.
If this were practicable (the United
States farmer would probably kick
vigorously) it is high time that
Britain does put a heavy duty on
wheat, for  that country  might bo

7. 'I hut the government should keep

In September 1903, the German
blast furnaces produced 8-18,889
tons, as compared with 718,702
tons in the corresponding month of

The Baku oilfields of Russia,
which are accountable for the major part of the production of^he
country, yielded 2782 million gallons in 1901, and 2625 million gallons in 1902.
The imports of coal into New-
Zealand are entirely derived fr"ir,
other British possessions, mainly
New South Wales, and in 1901, foi
the firs! lime, exports from New
/ aland were in excesa of imports.
The statistics of the production
and exports of petroleum in tbe
United States for a series ofyoarp
show that in 1901 tbe total pro-
duel ion of tho United States was
2428 gallons, whilst in 1902 it
reached 2830 million gallons.
In Cansda the native production
of coal is largely euppli mented
from tho United States, nearly
half the consumption of the Dominion being derived from that
source, whilst imports from other
sources are inconsiderable.
In Western Australia there is a

Nearly the whole consumption of

Of tbe British self governing

PHRA THE
PHOENICIAN
Continued from seventh page,
only cursed her nimble feet under
her breath, and from this, though I
may do her heavy injustice, I have
since feared she had planned the
desertion arid sent the maid back
to be killed or taken on some false
errand which for her jealous purpose was too quickly executed,
That noble Roman lady pulled
me by the hand, and would bave
had me leave the girl to her fate,
scolding ar,d entreating; and when
I angrily shook myself free, turning her wild, uniutored passions
into the channels of love, told me
she hud guessed my project of leaving her 'for Nuinideo,' and clung to
me and endeared me, and promised me 'Ihe tallest porch ou Pala-
Una' (as I threw off my buckler
and broadsword to be lighter iu tbe
stream) and 'the whitest arms for
welcome there that ever a Roman
matron Fptead' (as I pitched my
gilded helmet into the bushes and
Btrode down to 'he torrent,) if I
would hut lurn my back once for
all upon my little kinswoman.
Three times ihe white iirni^ of
that- magnificent wanton dosed
rotitjj me, and three tiui"s 1
wrenched them apart arid hurled
her back, three limes she tame
anew to the Btruggle, qunndering
her wild, queenly love upon me,
while, under the vviiite light over
head, the tears shone in her wonderful upturned eyes like very
diamonds, three tiuieri she invoked
every deity iu the hierarchy' of the
southern skies to witness her per-
junil love, aud cursed, for my sake,
all those absent youths who had
falleii before her. Three times she
knelt there on the Muck and while
turf, arid wrung her fair hands and
shock out her long thick hair, and
came imploring and begging down
to Ihe very lapping of tho water.
And there I stood—for I loo was a
Southern, and could be hot and
fierce—and spoke hitch words as
she had never heard before—abused and scoffed aud derided her:
laughed at her sorrow and mocked
her grief, and then turned and
plunged into the torrent.
The ford was not long: in a
minute or two I struggled out on
the farther shore, and Numidea,
with a ery of pleasure and trustfulness came to my dripping arms.
The British, hot on the track,
were shouting to ono another in
the dark pursuit, so the little mail'
was picked up securely, and with
her in my left arm upon my hip,
her warm wrists about my neck,
and my other hand on the guide
rope, we went baok into Ihe stream
again. By the sacred fane of
Vesta, il ran stronger than a mill
sluice, and tugged and worried at
my limbs like tho fingers of a fury!
•I felt Ihe pebbly gravel sifling and
jailing beneath my feet, aud the
HOong lift of the water, as it swirl-
tyjl, Hying by in the moonlight,
hissing and bubbling at my heaving chest in a way that frightened
me—even me. At last, with my
every muscle ou fire with the torrent all about it I saw the farther
bank loom over us once more, aud,
heaving a heavy Bigh of fatigue,
collected myself for one more
crowning effort.
But I had forgotten that royal
harpy my mistress; and, even as I
gathered my last strength in the
swirl of tho black water below, she
sprang to the verge of the bank'
overhead, vengeauace and hatred
flashing in the eyes that I had left
full of the gentlenees and tears, and
gleaming there in her wrath, her
white robos shining in the moonlight against tbe ebony setting of
the night, and glowered-down upon
us.
'Down with the maid!' she
screamed, with all the tyrant in
her voice. 'Down with ber, centurion, or you die together I'
'Neveil never I' I shouted, for my
blood was boiling fiercely and I
could have laughed at a hundred
such as she. But while I shouted
my heart sank, for Eleotra was
terrible to behold—an incarnation
of beautiful cruelty, hot, reckleBS
hatred ruling the fealuri-a that had
never lurned upon me before but
in sweelneBB and love. Por oue
minute tbe passion galhered bend,
and then, while I stood still in
current with dread of the coming
deed, she snatched bin own nnk 'I
sword from tbe gr und 'Die,
then!' she yelhd; 'and may a
thousand curses weight dew your
Boulr!' As she said ii the blade
whirled into the moonlight, des-
cii'dit g on the the guide rope just
where ii ran unit and hard over
lh< !■"-", stv ring it cle ,n lo h**
lust strands wiih one blow of those
i Ffeotive white arms, and the nut
mitnt e 'he hempen cord waB torn
out of my grusp, and over and
over and over in a drowning, bewildering cascade of foam we were
swept away down ihe stream
Itvifl-; the wildest swim ih«t
ever a mortal to,,k. So fiercely
did wo spin nml fly that heaven
and earth seemed mixed together
and the while cloud* overhead
were not Ihe whiter Iban J lie sheetB
of foam that ran down seawards
with US, I ;im a good swimmer,
but who could make the bank in
such a cauldron of angry waterB?
and now Numidea was ou top and
now I. It went to my heart to
hear the poor little Christian gasp
out on 'Good St. Christopher!' and
to feel the flutter of her breast
against my leather jerkin, and
then presently I did not feel it at
all. Many an island of wreckage
passed us, but none that I could
lay hold on, until presently a
mighty log came foaming down
upon us, laboring through that
torrent surf like a full sailed ship.
Ae it passed I threw an arm over
a Btrong root, and thus, for an
hour, behind that black midnight
javelin we flew downwards, I knew
not whither. Then it presently left
the strong stream, and towing me
towards a soft alluvial beach, just
as dawn was breaking in the east,
deposited me there, and slowly
disappeared again, into the void.
ThiB iB all I know of Roman
Britain; this ia the end of the
chapter.
As I reeled ashore with my bur-
don, some friendly fisherfolk came
forward to help, but I saw them
not. Numidea was dead! my poor
little Blave girl—the one speck of
virtue iu that tyrant world—and 1
bent over her, and shut her kindly
eyes, and spread on the sand her
1 ii-.g wet braids, and smoothed the
modest white gown she was bo
careful of, with a heart that
was heavier than it ever felt yet in
storm or battle I
Then all my grief and exertions
came upon me in a flood, and the
last thing I remember was ..stoop-
ing down in the morning starlight
to kiss the fair little maid upon
that pallid face that looked so vain
and strange amid the wild spread
tangles of her twisted hair.

The Granby smeller treated
38 31)7 tons of ore in October.
It is said that there is likely to
bo a reorgar.iz ttion at the Boundary Kails smelter shortly.
It i-i reported that the Goldfinch,
Jn Sitvlarkcamp, is looking b itler
th i.u ever with development.
Toe Mother Lode has a private
system of eight telephones, connecting diffuren! parts of the works.
' At the Winnip"g iho compressor
has been set on its bed, and Ihe
connections are being made. Next
week it will he in operation.
Iu October the Grenby mines
shipped 311,308 tons of ore; the
Mother Lode Bent out 12,665 tons
and tho Snowshoe soul out 0480
tons.
Harry Shallenberger intends developing the Moreen this winter.
The Moreen is located in South
Djtidwood camp aud adjoins the
Buokhorn on Ihe south. It has the
BueKhoru lead. The ore contains
good copper values, in fact the
Buokbom and adjoining claims
carry the highest copper values iu
Deadwootl oamp. The ledge on the
Moreen is fully 50 feet wide.
Last week's returns of the I'rovi-
d mce mine received from the Trail
Bmelter for a carload of 40,104
pounds of ore showed the net pro-
c.,.' i w i '■ I 103 89 or over $220
to the ton. The assay shows the
following values, itoid 2.44 ounces,
silver 3i7 80 ounoes and lead 7.110
p ir cent. This was one of the best
cars sent from the mine and more
equally good will follow. This
week 55 Ions o! sec nil class ore
was sent from the Providence to
the B. C. Copper company's smeller.
CARIBOO.
The Thistle company at Eight
Mile Lake had a record clean up.
The Deep Levels are waiting for
wtiter to drain out of the group a
little more.
At Willow River, Mr. Laird is
pumping both day and night with
his forty foot water wheel, and
Mr, ilopp at Slough Creek has a
Btaff of men doing similar work, g J
The plant of the Cariboo Consolidated, under Mr. Bailey, has
gone u|> in reoord time. The shaft
is now 150 feet, deep and. in a few
days the drive under tho creek wili
ho Started.
COAST,
The Tyeo Copper oompany, of
Vanoouver Islands, smelted 2805
tons of ore laBi month, the net re
turns whence amounted to #42,197.
Messrs. Bentley aud McGregor
returned the other day from Sau
Juau, Vancouver Island, to Victoria. The report that the float
iron ore found when making the
trail this summer, haa enabled
thorn to trace the locality whence
the ore came and locate some more
properly, Tbe new locations are
situated northeast of the original
claims "David" aud "Conqueror."
I.AHIIKAU
',, While exoavaling a Bite for a
blacksmith shop at tbe Mammoth
group ou Goat mountain, this week
five and a half tons of the richest
silver lead ore ever discovered in
the Lardoau were taken out,
Martin Lundin is iu from the
Guinea Gold. He reports matttets
in that camp looking good.   The
men are at present driving an up
raise from the lower tunnel to the
upper.
Mr. Lay has done a large amount
of work on his claims around the
mouth of Canyon creek. On the
Lennoxville and Good Luck, tbe
ground is seamed and slringy.
Tom Wills was down from the
Silver Dollar yesterday and sayB
that the rich free gold strike made
on that property last week, is
about the finoat showing he ever
saw. Gold is freely sprinkled
through the quartz aud can be
reudiiy perceived with the naked
eye.
Work is being pushed as rapidly
as possible on the Ophir Lade, the
mill and tram.vays are completed
but owing t> a shortage of piping
have uot been able to make a run.
Barclay Crilly, however, is at the
coast looking after this and it ia
ouly a matter of a few days until
it arrives when milling operations
will commeuce.
For the first time since 1897 the
Nettie L. min". closed down operations and 30 men were forced out
of employment. The close down
came as a great surprise not only
to the camp but to Manager Forbes
personally, who received cable instructions from Eugland. Resumption of mining will not tako place
until the completion of the new
combination 20-atamp silver mill.
It will probably Iib threa months
before the mill is ready to start
operations.
SLOOAN.
Six men are employed at the
Black Prince.
During October the Idaho
shipped 328 tous of ora.
The Monitor shipped l>3 tons of
ore during last month.
The foroe on the Ivanhoe is to be
increased lo 80 men.
Some excellent ore is being
taken out of the Bell by the lesseeB.
Tho force ou the Wakefield mine
was this week  reduced to 15 men.
Work is expected to be resumed
at tho Howard Fraotion at an early
date.
A rich shoot of ore has bean
struck on the Rambler-Cariboo,
800 feet belevv the apex,
Pluok and determination have
won out on the Ottawa, for the big
ore shoot haa been encountered in
the long tunnel.
The Sloctu Star haB a large
amount of zinc iu part of its workings, and could ship 500 ton-t a
month for oeveral years.
The magnetic separator ia in op
eration at tho Payne, whioh enables
that mine t)   send  out a   produot
running 65 per cent zino, 10 ounces
iu Bilver and a traeo in lead.
Out of 172,013 ahareB in the old
London & B. C. Goldfields, part
owners of the Enterprise mine,
109,104 have so far been taken up
under the plan of reorganization.
Tho Wakefield sold 200 tons dur-
in the last week of October. It
ran 43 per cent zinc, 30 ounces in
silver aud four par cent lead. The
Wakefield will ship several hundred tons this winter.
JjJTho most important strike that
has been made in the Slocan camp
the past year was that made last
Wednesday in the No. 8 tunnel of
the Ivanhoe. Twelve feet of solid
ore was struok, which demonstrates and£
•the great richness of the Ivanhoe
at depth.
} SIMILKAMEEN.
j No one, without a'visit to Hedley
City, could have even an approxi
mate idea of the amount of work
dome and yet to be accomplished
in connection with the Daly Reduction company and the Yale
Mining coming conjointly and
popularly known as the Nickel
Plate. A tramway reaching to the
mines, some four miles distant
with an ascent of nearly 1000 feet
per  mile,  and   a  flume  tapping
Twenty Mile oreek two miles upwards from the mill, are by far the
largest works of the kind in the
Similkameen.
SOUTH EAST KOOTENAY
Indications look favorable for
the resuming of operations at the
St. Eugene mine early next spring.
A small force of men have been at
work for several weeks repairing
the concentrator building, an additional engine room and putting up
the gallows frame over the shaft at
the No. 1 tunnel.
The shipping business here and
along the Crow is almost at, a
standstill for want of oars to handle
the stuff. The warehouses at the
station are full of produce waiting
to be shipped. AgentB are power-
leBB to provide cars and complaints
to headquarterB are useless since
there are no cars lo be had in the
west.
WINDERMEHE
The Pretty Girl mine is shipping
some high grade ore.
The Black Diamond on Toby
creek has about 200 tons of ore
ready for shipment.
The Ptarmigan Mining company
continues to develope its property
and open up bodies of ore by aid of
machine drills. The aerial tramway is giving good satisfaction in
bringing the ore from the mine to
the concentrator site.
The Paradise mine will ship no
ore this winter, but push develop
ment work and block out ore to be
handled next spring by the tram
way now under construction. A
saw mill has been purchased by the
oompany to get out timber for the
tramway and ore bins.
YMIIi.
Woik at the the Gold Cup is
progressing favorably.
Tne ledge at the Atlin mine haB
been struck and a crosscut is being
driven to ascertain its extent.
The lesseeB of the Arlington
mine at Erie are reported as doing
well for themselves and the owners
of the property.
The snowfall of tho past week
has somewhat retarded work on the
Hunter V. tramway, but nevertheless it is hoped to have it running
before the cloBe of the year.
A Tatte for Astronomy.
A taste for astronomy is springing up among young people of both
sexes. It always does as soon as

NKW TAXES.
The mayor has discovered a new
source of taxation. It is the insurance companies. The auctioneers
are taxed, so the hawkers) so why
not the insurance men. The effeot
might possibly be to drive a lew
more of the lire ineuranee companies out of town, and the remainder
would then find it easier to raise
the rates. That would be rather
an expensive revenue. Of course
the Chinamen are to go untaxed.
That is only right and proper
What would British Columhia do
were it not for the Celestials:? I
would necessarily revert to (.lie pos
Bession of the Siwajsfh, Hence the
stupidity of Laurier and the wisdom
of Dunsmuir.
If the mayor really wishes to
augment the revenue of tile town.
he can gain a far larger revenui •
acquiring the lighting franchise,
anil all the economies which he
has effected, will sink to nothing in
comparison,- if his own and the
salaries of the city council an
abolished.
The  fact ol   tho  matter   is thai
tbe whole financial  eyBttni i
camp requires  reconstruction, 1   I
patching.   We  want  an arol
for that woik, however,  not a jobbing carpenter.
LOW GRADE ORES.
Everyday attention is called to
the fact  that  the  low   grade ores,
from their vast area pf distribution
and   from   the   huge   depoBits  in
which they usually occur, aro after
all the mainstay of   the mining in
da3try.    For all   this   there are always a certain number af men who
will  prate constantly of the high
grade  bodies.     Were  Rossland a
high grade camp, it would resemble
the Slocan, or if worked at a greater rate would be  exhausted within
a decade  like  unto a  placer field.
RoBsland has oue of tbe biggest de-
p wits of low grade ore of two ch>ir-
acleis, whioh perhaps  exists upon
this   continent.     Its   grade   runs
much higher in  average than does
the ore of the Homestake, to which
attention haB recently  been called
as perhaps the premier mine in (lie
world.    Its average ore is  higher
tbau that of the Rand, higher than
that of   the  Rio Tinto, which lias
been   worked for time  almost immemorial.     I! issland, properly de
veloped, is in   tha   same class with
these  famous  camps,   an.l    every
help should he given to those v. ho
are honestly  endeavoring   to solve
the problem of the reduction of its
ores.    Upon   those  men and upon
the   facilities which   Rosslaud re
tains  within  its  control   to a if >rri
them, depends  the future of Rossland.    Aud   it ia   time that   B is
landers looked to this and appointed men to its councils who are m
time servers or  trucklers, but who,
actuated by a  public spirit will do
their best to place  Rossland when
it belongs—in the  very front runic
ffl the gold camps of the world.

VANCOUVER ELECTION.
The election of the Hon. Charles
Wilson, the • Attorney General, at
Vancouver assures the province
of the faot that tbe premier will
now mriet the legislature. Whether
ho will he able to retain power in
faoe of the declared hostility of
John Houston, the Conservative
member for Nelson, yet remains to
be seen, also some account haB to
be given of the reason why a judicial recount has been so far denied Fernie. No government can
oontinue to hold power if it acts in
bad faith, and ihe premier will
have, at an early date, to declare
his reasons for withholding this
recount, or lei it be done antl stand
the consequences, tt is r great
pity, that the government is bo
weak; and a stronger government
with either party in power, would
ha,ve ensured a more stable administration. As it is the country bad
best make tho best ol tho situation
and give the premier a fair chance
until he has shown exactly that

MINERS NEGLECT ATLIN
Increase in  the Season's
Output.    Prosperous
Outlook Ahead
J. 8. Breeze, an Atlin miner, aaid
oa hia recent return to Vanoouver,
that according to what oan be estimated from returns and royalties,
the clean up at Atlin this season
was over $430,000, or $30,000 more
than last season, and from this
time on be looked to see the output rapidly increase every   year.
He Btated that it was notioed in
Atlin that residents of British Columbia rarely visited them. On
the other hand, people from the
Sound were constantly looking over
the ground. Several times during
the season American newspapers
sent men to Atlin to write up the
hydraulio plants and take photographs for reproduction in their
papers, while the British Columbia
papers rarely had a representative
in Atlin.
He said that Atlin was run on
more legitimate business lines than
ever before, that tbe board of trade
was doing goad work, and matters
were improving in this direotion
continually.
meqts and the music, these bave
been growing in popularity, being
better and-better attended on each
occasion. Last night the dance
took the form of a masquerade and
tho experiment was a success.
The prize winners were MrB.
Sensorbox as a flower girl for the
best lady's costume; Miss K Coleman for the best sustained character; Charles Smith as Faust for the
best men's costume; J. Rich as a
monkey for the best comic character and A. Leighton aB the best
sustained charaoter among the
men.

JUVENILE ENTERTAINMENT.
Musical Recital at tha Opara   House
Next Weak,
Notice is hereby given to the
people of RosBland that the juvenile entertainment which was
reoently postponed from last week
on account of the arrival of the
Nelson company, will be held in
tbe Opera House on next Monday
evening, and that if mothers and
guardians do not attend they will
miss a muoh needed opportunity of
encouraging the latent talent which
is undoubtedly present in the coming generation in every city, and
especially in this camp where
music and the drama have found
so often suoh expert exponents.
Tbe ohief feature of tbe evening,
where so much has been attempted,
will perhaps be the musical recital,
drills and the oharming litlte, unpretentious operetta, Gyp, Junior.
The musioal recital ie accomplished
by the aid alone of the pupils of
Mrs. J. M. Fitz Patrick, but in the
other portions of the program outside assistance, but again wholly of
tbe friends of Mrs. Filz-Patrick has
again been called upon. Altogether
a very oharming evening is looked
forward to and already there has
been quite'a heavy advanoe sale of
tickets.
A well heated house is guaranteed and the public are requested
to come early as the ourtain will go
up sharp at 8 o'olook. The earlier
hour bas been fixed upon so as not
to keep the youthful debutantes too
late, and also to provide time for
the danoe which is to follow and to
which all attending the recital are
invited. The danoe musio aB well
as the general aooompaniment will
be undertaken by Graham's orchestra.
THE MASQUERADE.
Danes  at   Minors   Union  Hall   Last
Evening Was a Great Success
The dance given by Messrs.
Scborlemmer and McKinnon at tbe
Miners Union Hall last night was
.. great success. ThiB orchestra,
whose pianist is MiBS W. Crowley,
has been given a series of dances
on Tuesday and Friday evenings
during the fall and nightly, owing
to the excellence of the arrange- [ Dated this 16th day of Octobeif"< 8O3.
By saving 98 per oent of the values in Waterloo ore, running about
$85, the new Hendryx prooess of
cyanidin r has reaohed the highest
achievement of its career. The
Waterloo company, baoked by
Dennis Clark, of Spokane, and
others, is now considering the installation of the Hendryx plant at
its mine in Camp MoKinney, British Columbia.
The saving in handling the high
grade gold concentrates would be
$13 a ton. The concentrates are
now being hauled to the railway by
wagon for 20 miles, and the oost of
this with tbe treatment at the Trail
smelter brings tbe total costs up to
about $11 a ton. The smelter only
pays $19 an ounce for the gold, instead of 820.07. In the case of
four ounces gold ore, this means a
further reduction by tbe Bmelter of
$6.50 on the gold, making aotual
costs of freight and smelter treatment $17.50.
The Hendryx process in connection with the stamp mills at the
Waterloo mine, will pnbably entail at the outside a direot cost of
$2.50 a ton for milling. By saving
98 per oent of the gold the indireot
loss is only $1.65 a ton, and the
maximum costs for treatment and
losses in milling will amount to
about $4 a ton, as against the present costs of $17.50 a ton.
The famous Poplar oreek jumping case of Edward Tanghe has resulted in utter fiasoo. An order
was signed yesterday for his immediate release.
It will be remembered that
Edward Tanghe was sentenced to
three months imprisonment for
disobeying the order of the Gold
Commissioner of the district. In
the words of his oounoil, A. H
MaoNeill, K. O, he waB accused to
stealing ore off bis own olaim.
Brought up before two local
justice of the peace he was ten
fenced, on the ground of the die
obedience of official orders, to three
months imprisonment. Muoh in
terest was taken locally in the case
and opinion was muoh divided as
to the merits of his sentence. His
counsel, however, bad no doubt as
to this point and immediately
moved in the Supreme Court for a
writ a certiorari and habeas corpus. The writ a certiorari is where
a superior court takes up and reviews the proceedings of one that ie
inferior to it. Practically it ia an
appeal in criminal cases. Tbe
writ has been granted and on a revision of the evidence Edward
Tanghe bas been immediately released.
This decision, it is thought, will
render the validity of the legal
staking of Edward Tanghe's claim
of some moment.

CHAPTER IV (Continued.)
Many a pleaseut week and
month did I live and enjoy all the
beet thingH life haB to give: the
master of my Roman mistress; the
foremost spearman where tho boar
went to bay among the rocks on
the hill side; the jolliest follow lhat
was ever invited to a lordly banquet; tho penniless abveuturer
whose fortune every one envied—
and then fate put me by again, and
wiped my tablt tB clean for another
frolic epoch.
It oame about this way. Tbe
British grew more and more unruly as time went on, and legion
a'ter legion left us. At length,
when the last of tho Romans were
down to Ihe coaBt, about to embark,
Eleotra made up her mind to go
too—and with all her hoards. But
in this latter particular the new
authorities in the neighboring town
could not concur, aud they set two
brand new civilian senators to expostulate and detain her,  the last
representative of the old rule.
Electra had those gentlemen stripped iu the vestibule, and Hogged
within an ace of their lives, and
then them sent home, bound in a
mean country cart.
All that alternoon we were busy
sewing up the gold and bronze in
bags, and by ditek along train of
mules sot out for the ooast, in
charge of score of our mercenaries,
who, having served a long apprenticeship to cruelty and extortion,
had more to fear from the natives
than even we. Nor was it too
soon. As the last of the convey
went into the evening darkness.
Elect'a and I ascended the flat,
wide roof of her home, and there
we Baw westwards, under tbe
stormy red of the setting sun, the
[lashing of arum and the duet
wreaths against tho glow which
hung above the bands of people
moving out and bearing down on
us in a mood one well could guess.
Her ladyship, having safely
packed, was disdainful and angry.
Her Que lips curled as she watched
the grey column of citizonB swarming out the aseu.lt; but when her
gaze wandered over the fair valleys
she had ruled and bled so long, she
was, perhape, a little regretful and
softened.
'My good and stalwart captain,
Bhe said, coming near to me, 'yonder sun, I fear, will never rise
again on a Roman Britain! We
must obey the Fates. You know
what I would do, had I the power,
to yonder scum; but, since we mtiBt
desert this house to them (as I see
too clearly we must,) how can we
best ensure the safety of the treasure?'
We arranged there and then,
with small time for parley, that 1
should stay with a handful of her
mercenaries and make a Btand
about the villa, while she, with the
last of her servants, should go on
and hurry up by every means in
her power the slow caravan of her
wealth. In truth, my mistress
was a b brave as she was overbear
ing, and, but for those endless
shining bags of gold, 1 do believe
she would have stayed and fought
the place with me.
As it was, she reluotantly consented to the plan, and bid mo
adieu (which I returned but coldly,) and oame back again for another kiss, and said another goodbye, and hung about me, and enjoined caution, and held my hands,
and looked first into my eyes and
then back into the darkness where
tho laden mules were, aB much in
love as a rustio maid, as anxious
aB a usurer, and torn and distracted between these contending feelings.
At last Bhe and all the women
were gone, whereon with a lighter
mind we Bet ourselves down to
cover their retreat.   Here must  it
be confessed that, for myself, I was
ill at ease; treachery lurked within
me. I had grown somewhat
weary of her ladyship, nor had
longer a special wish to be dragged
in her golden chains, the restlesB
spirit chance had bred within
moved, and then—if I could— if I
dared—break with herl I well
knew the wild tornado of indignation and love this would call up,
and henoe had not confessed my intentions earlier, but had been cold
and distant. The dame, you will
see presently, had been Bharper
in guessing that I supposed.
We made such preparation as we
could with tho small time at our
disposal, barricading the white facade of the villa and closing all
approaches. Then we pulled the
winter stacks to pieces in the yard,
making two great mounds of faggots in front of the poroh, pouring
oil upon each, and stationing a
man to lire them, by way of torches,
at the given signal. My hope was
that, as the wide Roman way ran
juat below the villa, the avengers
of the ambassadors would not
think of passing on until they had
demolished the house and us.
Of the loyalty of   the  few   men
with me 1  had little  fear.   They
were brave and stubborn, all   their
pay was on  Electra's   mules,   and
the   British  hated  them   without
compunction.   There were iu   our
little company that black evening
Beven   wild   Welshmen,   under   a
shaggy haired, blue eyed   prince
ling: Gwallon of the Bow he called
himself—fifteen swarthy   Iberians,
all teeth and Bcimitar— a  handful
of B-lgic mercenaries, with groat
doubled headed axes— but never a
Roman among them all in this last
Btand of Roman power iu  Britain!
Was I a Roman, I wouder, as   I
stood on the  terrace   waiting   the
onset of the liberated slaves? Whai
was I? Who was I? How came   it
that he who was first in   repelling
the stalwart Roman adventurers of
endless years before was the last to
lift a sword in their defence?  And,
more personally, was this night  to
be, as it greatly seemed, the last of
all my wild adventures; or had fate
infinite   others   in   Btore   for   her
bantling?
You will guesa how I wondered
and speculated as my golden Roman armour clanked to my gloomy
stride in Electra's empty coiridors,
and the wet lleecy clouds drifted
fitfully across the face of a broad
full moon, and a thousand things
of love or sorrow crowded on my
busy mind.
We had not long to wait, however. In an hour the mob came
Bcullling round the bend, shouting
disorderly, with innumerable
torches borne aloft, and they set up
a yell when they caught sight of
our .shining whi:e walla silently
agleam in the moonlight.
There could be no parley with
such a leaderless rush, and we attempted none. Without a thought
of discipline they stormed the pastures and swarmed into the garden,
a motley, angry crowd, armed with
scytheB and hooks and axes, and
apparently all the town pressing on
behind.
Well, we fired our faggots, and
they gleamed up fiercely to welcome the Bouillon levies to their
doom. Never did you see buc.1i a
ruddy, wild scene—Buch a motley
parody of noble war! The bright
flameB leapt into the tranquil sky
in volcanoes of spark andthe hissing tongues, the BritiBh rushed at
us between the lires like imps of
darkneBB, and we met them face lo
face and slew them like   the dogs
were hemmtd in the verandah, under whose columns we had 6ome
Bhelter, and then my brave Welshmen showed me how they could
pull the their long bows, which indeed they did in right good earnest
until all the trim terraces were
littered with writhing, howling foe-
men.
But again they drove us back,
this time into the house, and there
we soon had a better light to fight
by, for the sparks had caught the
roof, and soon everything far and
near was ablaze. Every man with
me that night fought like a patrician, and Electra's polished floors
were slippery with blood; her
pretty walls, with their endless
painted garlands of oak and
myrtle, their cooing doves and
tender cupids, were horribly bo-
smoared and smudged; and her
marble pillars chipped by flying
javelins and gashed by random
axe strokes,
Ten times wo   hurled  ourselves
upon the invaders and drove them
staggering   backwards    over   tho
slippery pavements into the   passages—sixteen men  had   fallen to
my own arm aloue, and   we crammed their bodies into the doorways
for barricades.  But it would not do
The sheer weight of those   without
made tho men within brave against
their   will.   Nothing   availed   the
stinging shafts of my   Welshmen,
the Iberiau scimitars played   hopelessly (like   summer  lightning in
the glare) upon the solid wall of
humanity and   the  German axes
could make no pathway throught
that impenetrable civilian tangle.
Overhead  and    amoung us  the
smoke curled and eddied, and  the
flames behind it made it like a hot
noonday   iu   our    fighting   place.
And in the wreaths of   that   pungent  vapour,   circling   thick   and
yellow iu the groat open roofed ball
of the noble Roman villa, her ladyship's statues of  faun   and  satyr
still fluted and grinned  imbecilely
as though they liked   the turmoil;
wept for new griefs  as the marble
little ones at her feet were calcined
before her eyes, and   the   Gorgon
head   wore   a    hundred   frightful
snakes of flame;   the   pale,   proud
Pallas Athene of the Greeks looked
disdainfully ou the dying  barbarians at her feet, and  Pan! himself,
iu bronze, leered on us though the
reek   until biB^Iewd   limbs   grew
whitehot—and gave way, and down
he came—whereon a mighty Briton
heaved him up by   his   head, and
with hissing, glowing flail   carried
destruction and confusion   amoung
us.
It was bo hot in that flaming
marble battle place that foreigner
and Briton broke off lighting now
and then to kneel together for a
moment at the red fountain basins
where the jets still played (for tho
fugitives had forgotten to turn them
off), and quenched their thirst iu
hurried gasps, ere Hying again at
each other's throats, and so wild
the confusion and uproar, and bo
donee Ihe smoke and flame, so red
and slippery wore the pavements,
and so thick the dead and dying,
that hardly one could tell which
were friends and which foes.
For an hour we kept Ibom at
bar, and then, when my arms
ached with killing, ell on a sudden the face of a man unknown to
me, whom I never hail Been Lofore,
ehone in the gleam at my shoulder.
'Phra the Phoenician,' ho said
calling me by an appollation
no living man then knew
'I am bidden to get you hencr.
Come to the inner doorway—quick!'
I hardly knew what he meant,
they were.   In a few  minutes   we but   there   was   that   about  him
which I could not but obey, so I
turned and followed his retreating
figure.
I ran with him acroBS the courtyard, under' the white marble
pillars all aglow, through the silent
banquet hall that had echoed so
often to the haughty laughter
of my mietrese, an 1 then when we
reached the oool, dp mp outer air—
like a wreath of mist in November,
like an eidy among the dead
leaves—my guide vanished and left
me!
Angry and enrpriscd, but with
no time for wonder, I turned baok.
Even as I did so there was a.
mighty crack, a grouniug of a
thousand timbers, and there before
my very face, with a resounding
roar, Electra's lordly mansion,
and all the wingB, and buttresses,
and basements, the rooms, and col-
onnadee, and corridors of that
splendid home of luxury and power, lurched forward, and heaved,
and collapsed in one mighty red
ruin that tinctured the sky from
east to west, and buried alike in
one vast, glowing hecatomb besiegers and besieged!
* # V! * *
It had fallen, the last stronghold
of Roman authority, and tiere
waB nothing more to defend! I
turned, and took me to the quiet
forest pathways, every nook and
bend of which I knew. As I ran,
the sweet, moiBt air of the evening
was like an elixir to my heated
frame; now into the black shadows
I plunged, and anon brushing the
silver moonlight dew from bramble
and brackon, while a thousand
fancies of our stubborn fight danoed
around me.
In a little time the road went
down to the river that sparkled in
flood under the moonbeams. Here
the laden mules had crosB6il into
comparative safety, and now I had
to follow them with a single guide
rope to feel my way alone .'areas
the dangerous ford. I struggled
through the swollen stream safely,
though it rose high above my waist
and then who should loom out of
the dark on the far Bide but Electra, standing alone and expectant
at the brink.
Faithful, stately matron! She
was so glad to see me again, I was
really eorry I did not love her
more. I told her something of the
retreat. Some time before the
long train of mules and slava had
gone on up the steep slowing bank,
and into the coppice beyond, rod
now I and the Roman dame lingered a minute or so by the brinl:
the turgid stream to see the ".ast
flickers of her burning home. We
were on the point of turning; indeed, Lady Eleotra seemed anxom
to he gone, when, stepping out of
the dark pathway into a patch of
moonlight on the farther shore,
a little silver casket in her duteous
hands, and those dainty shirU in
which she took so much pride
muddy and soiled, appeared the
poor little slave Numidea.
She tripped fearfully forth from
the ehadows and down the brink,
where the water waB swirling
against the stones in an ivory *.nd
ailver inlay; and when she saw
(not perceiving us in the shadows)
that all the people had gone on and
she was deserted to the tender mercies of the foemen behind,
she dropped her burden, and threw
up her white, clapped hands in the
moonlight, RUtl wailed upon us in
a way that made my steel cuirass
too small for my Bwelling  heart.
Surely such a pitiful sight ought
to have moved anyone, yet Electra'

THE    CITY    COUNCIL
Amendments Proposed to
Trading Bylaw-The
Light Franchise
The city fathers on Tuesday
night (in open council) were occupied with tin; question of revising
the Municipal Trading Bylaw. It
is proposed to tax the insurance
companies, life and fire, having
agencies in this city. The fire insurance companies are not as they
were and the doubtful point is
whether the city would be any real
gainer by the imposition of such a
licence being exacted. The legal
point of the view is another matter
but as there is a city solicitor it is
aa well to give him some obscure
points of law along the line of innovations to keep him busy and
sharpen his legal acumen. As to
the life insurance   meu   they   will
