The shipments for the week show
a respectable total. The Le Roi is
working in a 60 foot shoot just
now which, with a little further
drifting, will Bpread at a further
point into one of a 100 foot width
rendering the cost of extraction
much less. The Jumbo is 3tarting
a lower tunnel, and is expected to
disclose a large body of ore, the
preeence of which is indicated by
other workings. The Le Roi No. 2
concentrator was run in all of its
parts simultaneously, for the first
time yesterday and is, as already
slated, a success. The Rossland
Kootenay has resumed shipments
and the White Bear is making
good progress with its headworks.
The camp is all agog aB to the
aotion which is to be taken by ihe
various mining companies with .regard to the Elmore process. It is
certain that the process as far as
regards the treatment of the Le
Roi No. 2 ores is a success. Not
that that Buccess was at once attained. This first experiments
made, not in Rossland, but elsewhere, were little better than a
success d'estime but the results obtained locally show that the exact
method of treatment had not been
arrived at properly before. This
is also the case concerning the Le
Roi ore which is muoh the same ae
that of the Le Roi No 2, the north
Le Roi vein running across the Le
Roi No. 2 ground. It is for this reason that so much interest is being
taken by mining men as well as by
the public in general. Beyond the
statement, however, made by the
directorial of the Le Roi No. 2 that
the success of the present plant
would mean the erection of a much
larger plant, of four or five hundred tons daily capacity, it is too
early yet to state definitely what
are the intentions of the mines
ooncerned despite the assertions of
onr contemporary to tbe contrary
notwithstanding. Nothing definite
can be announced in this regard
inasmuch as there ie nothing definite ae yet formulated by those most
nearly concerned. However this
muoh can ho stated, that the mines
are taking the matter into a very
careful consideration, and that there
exists little reason to doubt that
these will put up concentrators in
the near future. Naturally the success of the concentrator which is
erected by the War Eagle and Centre Star near Trail, is also being
watched, and the successful treatment of Itossland ores by one process or the other doubly confirmed.
It is one or other of these processes
whioh will be undoubtedly adopted
as far as regards the silioious ores
of the oamp.
The difference that will be made
to tbe oamp will indeed be notable.
For it must not be considered that
the whole of the ore of the camp
will be concentrated. In faot the
iron ores will not lend themselves
to concentration from their very
nature. Suoh again is the case
with the rioh pyrbotite, and indeed
with the higher grade ore of all
bases. These oreB will be smelted
as uBual. Indeed their amount
will be increased as tbe presence of
concentrates in the flux at the
smelters, having no silica to occasion the inordinate uae of coke and
lime, expensive and dead fluxes,
will tend to cheapen the cost of
smiting, and thus lower the grade
oi the ores which are capable of
being treated by the reduction
works at Northport and elsewhe-p
Thus there is no 'likelihood oi "&£;"
dimunition in the amount of smelter ore shipped from the camp. In
fact the contrary is likely to be the
case. But the concentrates will
be taken from that large body of
low grade silicious ore, till now
considered as almost superabundant
in all of our mineB, ores which have
been left in tbe levels till a more
favorable day and where, indeed,
the whole mine has consisted of
this class of ore, the mine itself hae
been closed down for a more favorable time. Suoh for instance that
showing of low grade ore untouohed
in the npper levels of the Centre
Star, on whioh that mine is sold to
itB present owners. Mines will
open up that have been lying idle.
Working mines will take out those
stopea which have been" passed by
up to the present. Within a year
concentrators having a capacity of
1000 to 1500 tons daily should be
in existence in this camp or its
vicinity (that depends upon the
city, where). That is to say the
output of the camp should be by
this time next year, approaching
double what it is today. But if
900 men are now shipping 7000 to
8000 tons weekly, it will take at
least an equal number to ship the
extra amount of low grade ore.
And the men mean families.
Therefore the outlook before the
camp is peculiarly bright and it will
once more demonstrate its title of
being the leading centre of mining
in the province.

GOAL AND OIL
JJCENCES
Prospectors Making   Another Move
INITIATE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
Getting Tired Waiting For a Beneficent Government to Make
Up Its Mind
It is understood that the coal.'and
oil prospectors of South East Kootenay have made up their minds to
make one final effort to move the
McBride government to consider
and give final judgement upon
their case and are determined that
if such consideration is refused or
if such decision is not according
to the law on the matter, as read
by them, to institute legal proceedings. S
The only surprising thing about
this determination is that it was
not arrived at long since. The
question which is now stirring
these minds is whether to proceed
by mandamus or by petition of
right, the latter procedure being
much tbe more expensive. The
form of proceeding by mandamus
will be to ask the Supreme Court
for a mandamus to compel the
mining: border ooucerued to 'ssue
a lioenoe, lodging the money for
such licence. This will at once
bring up the whole question inasmuch as the only reason why such
licences are not granted is beoause of
the reserve. This reserve, however,
it is claimed only to the surface
rights. Minerals below, aocording
to the wording of a certain seotion
of the Coal Act is expressly exempted from the operation of any
reserve. Should the Supreme
Court of the Province deoided
against the granting of suoh mandamus appeal is proposed to the
Supreme Court of Canada and if
necessary to the Privy Counoil.
One way or another it seems probable that the hand of the government will now be foroed and a
muoh vexed question legally settled.

CUT OUT THE SALAHIES
Will Pay for the Interest
On Purchase of Light- ~
ing Franchise.
Relative to the discussion, more
or less open, which has occurred
during the latter end of the current week, with regard to no salaries for the mayor and council
next year, Alderman Daniel, who
ia responsible for this policy, stated
that thiB waB no new and strange
plank in tbe civic platform. HiB
position waB this, that at present
there was too muoh expenditure
foi tco little revenue. The purchase of the light would augment
the revenue, which the abolition of
salaries referred to would diminish
the expenditure. "Indeed" said
Mr.   Daniel "the  saving on   suoh
salaries, $2170 per annum, would
go far towards meeting the interest
in the lighting loan if the conoern
oould bj acquired at any moderate
valuation." THE SATURDAY WORLD, ROSSLAND, D. C. OCT. 31, 1903
AUTHORS
AND BOOKS
What the Magazines are
Saying
ARTICLES OFCURRENTCQMMENT
Some Recent Books and Periodicals
-Topics Interesting- General Readers.
The current number of the Nineteenth Century contains a pregnant article by Arthur H. Adams,
on Colonial loyalty. Himself a
"colonial," Mr. AdamB explains
that that loyalty is one to the Empire and not to England, as the
predominant partner. He complains that Chamberlain's polioy is
good enough, but does not go far
enough. Its tariff preference is
well but, with no representation of
the Dominion Over the Seas in
England, it is liable to lead to
friction with every fluctuation of
tariff, friction that may become
serious. He therefore advocates
the formation of an Imperial Council on a double basis, having but
one cameral sitting and but advisory power. The double basis is
that population and of statehood.
The advisory power as public opinion gradually supported it would
become commandatory. He declares that England must recognize
that the Dominions Beyond the
Seas, are its equal, that they do
not belong to it but to the Empire.
He disclaims the English idea that
the Imperial Parliament so called,
is anything but a Siate Legislature
Everybody's Magazine for November has a number of short
stories, and is up to its usual
standard.
Smart Set is as brilliant as ever,
and the November issue is as bright
a number as the publishers have as
yet sent out.
' The London contains a good
Bketch of the oareer and personality
of Joseph Chamberlain, and has a
number of good stories, chief
among which may be reckoned one
by Sabatini, a not profuse author,
but one who is gradually making
his mark through powerful and improving work.
Munsey's for November contains
an excellent account of the feud
wars of certain of the Southern
states of the American Union and
has its usual quota of magazine
literature.
The Metropolitan's current number has another 1 number of the
Queen's Quair, a story of Mary,
Queen of Soots, by Maurioe Hewlett, whioh finds much to recommend it to the historical novel
lover. There are ^the usual short
stories, none of which call for any
special notice.
Fergus Hume haB gone far since
he wrote his Mystery ol a Hansom
Cab, and has by no means written
himself out. His latest, A Coin
of Edward VII, is his usual detective slory, and in the indition of
thnse Fergus Hume is easily in the
front rank of the authors of these
writings, which many consider to
be the most fascinating description
of light literature.
Joseph Hocking, who has written
more than one historioal novel, has
now a new one to present to his
publio. It is entitled A Flame of
Fire, and is a tale of three Englishmen in Spain at the time of
the  Great  Armada.   It  gives  a
vivid picture of the then times in
Spain, and of courBe would not
have been complete without a description of the inquisition in
Spain, the existence of which turned the minds of the British emphatically against the Dons.
Connie Burt, by Guy Boothby,
is a good story by the well
known Australian writer and shows
vividly the life at the Antipodes,
its similarity and its dissimilarity
to the life of the Briton in other
parts of the Great Empire.
The Golden Kingdom, by Andrew Balfour, is a tale of adventure cast in a hiBtorioal form, and
deals with the very early days of
Dutch settlers at the Cape. It
has a flavor of Rider Haggard, but
in several ways it iB even better,
though lacking the piquauoy of
such books as "She." The book is
well worth reading.

platform adopted in Oct oner, 1890, which is aa
follows;
"To actively eld In the construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of the
province and tho building of provincial trunk
roads of public necossity.
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in so far as tbe circumstances of tbe provinoe will admit, ami tho
adoption of the prineipio that no bonus should
bo granted lo any railway company which
does not give tho government of tho provinco
control of rates over lines bonuscd, together
with tho option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in the development of the agricultural resources of the
province."
2. That in the meantime and until the rail
way polioy above set forth can bo accomplish,

freedom to construct railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to the system
that lias resulted in such extensive railway
construction in tho United Slates, with so

The greatest increase in wages
since the organization of unions in
Iowa is found in the oase of the
printers, whose gain is 123.21 per
cent. The cigarmakers have reduced their hours the greatest,
27.27 per cent.
The call for the twenty-third
annual convention of the American
Federation of Labor, to meet in
Faneuil hall, Boston, Mass., on
Monday, November 9, haB been
issued by President Gompers and
and Secretary Morrison.
Agreements have been reached at
Fort Worth, Tex., which parlioally
terminate the strike which the
Thui-bcr coal miners inaugurated
some time ago, and which render
it reasonably cerain that Thurber
will be a uuion camp.
The average level wages in the
United States are said to be 1^
times greater than in the United
Kingdom, while in Germany,
wages are only two-thirds, and in
France three-fourths of the average
prevailing in the United Kingdom.
German metal manufacturers
have decided to crush the strike of
flOO workers which has been in prjy
gress for some days by locking out
the remaining 7000 employes until
the others resumed work. One
hundred and seventy-three factories
are idle as a result.
A labor union, the fundamental
principles of which are opposition
to all strikes and in favor of Bottling disputes with employers by
arbitration, has been organized at
St. Louis, Mo. The organization
is to be known as the Independent
Association of Brass Workers.
The common council of Nashville, Tenn., recently adopted a new
charter which raised the mayor'
salary from $2400 to $3000 a year.
It then passed an ordinance increasing the wageB of city laborers
from $1,25 to $1.50 a day, and the
mayor promptly vetoed it.
Two resolutions were adopted at
the annual convention of the National Loom Fitters' Association,
held at Boston, Mass., recently, one
of which favored a shorter workday
for women and children employed
in factories, and the other against
e oa ploy ing women and children on
overtime work.
After years of strikes the printing trades of Germany have agreed
upon uniform wage soales for the
entire country. The agreement is
for Biz years, and all disputes are
to be settled by arbitration, either
side having the right to demand an
umpire. Actual hours of labor
shall not exceed eight.
The Journeyman Bricklayers
and Masons' International Union,
which has about 00.000 members
in the various cities throughout the
United States, is now voting on the
question of joining the American
Federation of Labor, Returns so
far indicate a preponderance in favor of affiliation with the Federation.
A ccording to the official report
there were altogether 17,786 industrial establishments,' employing 1,
710,735 workers, on Deoember 30,
1901, in the Russian empire; 73.2
per cent of tbe workers were
males and 26.8 per cent were fe
males; 2 per cent were ohildrem,
9 per cent were halfgrown children
and 89 per oent were adults.
Some of the unions in the New
York building trades, owing to the
unsatisfactory state of affairs in the
building industry, are considering
the question of doing away with
the appellations, "business agents"
or "walking delegates," and electing "shop stewards" instead. The
walking delegates objeot to this,
however, as a rule, as a shop steward remains on a building and
works at his trade, but while, he is
an official represntative of the
union, he has little or no intlivid
ual power.

the constituencies of the province on the
basis of population, but allowing a smaller unit of population pei\,seat for the out
lying districts.
2. Government ownership, Dominion,
provincial and municipal, of public services of utilities is sound and shouM be
carried out in British Columbia.
3. Should It be advisable at any time
to grant aid to a railway company such
shall be in cash and not in land and no
bonus of any kind shall be given without definite and effective means being
taken to safeguard the interests of the
province in the management of the road,
control of the freight and passenger
rates, and provis'on made against such
railway having any liability against it
except for actual cost.
•4. Immediate r, nolruction of the
Coast-Kootenay railway; the Cariboo
railway, the extension of the Island railway; a railway from Alberni to a point
on the east coast of the Island; a road in
the northern part of the province from
the coast to the eastern boundary with
an extension to the northern boundary
the railway from Vernon to Midway by
north fork of Kettle river; with necessary
branch lines, ferries and connections.
5. The enforcement of the act now in
force compelling the scaling of logs by
government scalers.
6. That snch legislation should be
enacted as will result in making the
lands included in the various dyking
aieas available for cultivation as quickly
as possible and secure prompt payments
of assessments when due.
7. That the government should keep
in touch with the conditions in connection with mining, protecting said industry against combines and trusts and if
necessary for the purpose build and
operate smelters and refineries. No
radical change should be made in the
mining laws without full notice to all
parties interested, giving full opportunity
for d scussion and criticism.
8. As the province cai only advance
hy the settlement within its borders of
thrifty and prosperous citizens, and as
Orientals never become citizens in any
proper tense of the word, we declare it
to be the dutv of the government to discourage Oriental immigration and employment by every means within its
power, and * e appeal to our fellow Liberals throughout the Dominion to aid us
in our efforts to protect ourselves against
the ruinous competition of men having a
standard of decency and comfort immensely below that of civilized peoples,
and who shirk every duty and obligation
of citizenship which the law will allow
them to escape.
9. The government ought to prevent
the waste and suffering caused by strikes
and lockouts, and an earnest effort ought
to be made to provide some means of
preventing such strikes and lockouts,
and we approve the adoption of compulsory arbitration.
10. The fiscal system of the province
stands in need of revision. Taxation
should bear upon privilege rather than
upon industry, and no addition should be
made to tbe debt of the province except
for public works properly ehargeable to
capital.
11. The retaining of the resources of
the province as an asset- for the benefit
of the people and taking effective measures to prevent the alienation of the public domain except for actual bo a fide
business or industrial purposes, putting
an end to the piactice of speculating in
connection with the same.
12. The construction and maintenance of roads throughout the province
to aid in the development of the mining
and agricultural districts.

Reports concerning the affairs of
the Consolidated Lake Superior
company are very conflicting.
Certain American papers give
prominence to the statement by
Mr. G. A. Newett, in whioh he
points out that the value of the
properties is based on a wrong estimate of the mineral reBouroes
controlled by the oompany, as the
iron ores in the Helm and other
mines owned by the oompany are
not bessemer in quality, and possess far smaller ore reserves than
has been generally stated. For the
manufacture of steel rails, the
company's ohief produot, they have
to import ore from the United
States, whioh prevents them scouring the bounty offered by the Dominion Government.

BOUNDARY.
John A. Manly of Grand Forks
has bonded the Pathfinder mine in
Summit camp for $100,000.
More miuers are to be put to
work at the Oro Denoro, as ore
shipments are to be increased at
once.
Wellington camp is now shipping two cars of ore per day, the
ore all going to thu Boundary
Falls smelter.
The Waterloo at Camp McKinney employs 25 men, and the mill
is running full time. September's
clean-up amounted to $10,000.
According to the Boston Commercial, the Granby company
made a net profit of 2| cents per
pound on its oopper for the year
ending June 30th last. This included six months of 1902 when
the prioe of copper was low.
Jack Farrell, who bonded the
Jack Pot fraction to the Athelstan
syndicate a few weeks ago, has received a second payment of $5000
making $8000 in all; the balanoe
$7000, being due in a short time.
This claim was held by Jimmy
Ellis for three years, but he failed
to do assessment work and it was
relooated by Farrell a year ago.
ISLAND.
Csble received in London from
the Tyee Copper Company gives
results of smelting for 30 days of
September, aB follows: Smelted—
Tyee ore, 4417 tons; customs ore,
440 tone; Total, 4857 tons. Matte
produced from same, including 139
tons low grade matte, 532 tons,
gross value of contents (copper,
silver and gold), less cost of refining, $58,222.
KAMI.OOPS.
The Inland smelter, whioh will
be built about three miles down the
river will be, when first started,
capable of handling 200 to 300
tone of ore per day. It is expeoted
that the plant will be enlarged so
that it will treat several times that
amount, and will be so planned
that more stacks can be easily
added.
I.AKDEAU
Al Houston haB been down for a
few days getting the Mohican ore
shipped. There is about ten tons
and it will be sent to the Trail
smelter for treatment. This property is owned by the Cariboo Creek
Syndioate, composed principally of
RosBland people.
J. O. Piper has done the assessment work on the Rose Fraction
situate on Silver Cup mountain.
The work has been of a preparatory
natuie with a view of driving to
oatoh the lead at depth, Assays
from this property give values of
gold $117 and silver, 567 ounces.
Work is being pushed rapidly
on the No. 3 group owned by the
Gold Belt Syndicate of Rossland.
This property is showing up remarkably well and it. is the inten-
tention of the management to rawhide down to the lake during the
winter a tonnage that will materially inorease the camp's shipments.
The Kootenay Consolidated company have  finished  their
ments on six of their Duncan river
claims. Jack Brown was over looking after the work and seems highly elated over the result of their
work. They brought some ma-g
nificent samples of galena, some of
itoarrying grey copper.

TIME TO STIP.
There is an old adage that tbe
Almighty helps IhoBe who help
themselves which Rosslanders
would do well to bear in mind at
the present juncture. It is with
complacency that we learD that the
Elmore process iB a great success,
that two mines are already ereot-
ing or have erected ooncentratores
and that others have entered into
negotiations thay Jjthey may go and
do likewise. The problem of the
treatment of the silicious ores ol
the camp has at least been solved
and Mr. Claudet has proved himself worthy of the encomiums bestowed upon him last year by tbe
Would. But the mines have a
tough job before them yet. They
had a difficult task in the solving
of the problem. They have still
another in the provision of the
necessary water for the working ol
the scheme. For the ordinarj
citizen haB at present not discovered the fact, though repeatedly laid
before him in these columns thai
concentration whether it be by tht
oil process or by another require?
water and lots of it. Seven oi
eight ton to every ton of ore treated. Now there is plenty of watet
to be had but ils bringing to tht
city is expensive. Sd expensive ie
it indeed that no mine would bt
juBtifiedin incurring that expense
unleeB it could see its way to tht
control of the whole of the water.
This, naturally, tbe cily would nol
like to see given. But the city
which would refuse euch a privil
ege is hardly in a position of itself
to incur at once the whole of tbe
large expenditure neceBBary. This
has been caused largely by the
giving away of its franchises on
which, under the Act for which
that abused man, John Houston, h
largely responsible, a separate loan
could be raised by hypothecation.
But there is a middle course whioh
has already been attempted by the
present mayor which is to get the
mining companies, one and all, to
come into the enterprise by taking
up a portion of the city bonds under the proviso that they should
get water supplied for the coming
mills at a reasonable rate, If the
city would make up its mind to
acquire the lighting franchise, the
revenue arising fiom it as well an
from the water for domestic purposes, even now netting over $5000
per annum, which form a substantial basis of hypothecation which
with the guarantee the mines
themselves would afford as to using
the water thus brought would be
ample to make the investment a
giltedged security. But should the
city let the opporluily go by it will
be almost inevitable that the concentrators will have to go out of
the camp thereby losing for the
city a great industry and hampering the mineB with the tax upon
their ores which will be the practical effect of the freight to the concentrator where situated out of the
camp.
There has been a reform in tbe
habits of the citizens of Rossland
which is to be welcomt d. And we
of Rosdlaiid have to thank tbe pre
sent incumbent of the mayoral
office for it. Some fooli«h people,
not understanding the real benefit
of the city, have objected to the in-
cestant fire alarms to which we
have been subjected during the
present year. They have declared
that with eo many crieB of "Wolf
Wolf" ihat when the wolf really
did arrive that the firemen would
only take a roll over in their
blankets and put it down in disgust to another witless alarm.
They did not understand that the
fireboys have really nothing to do
and need some employment in order to prevent vacuity of mind.
Moreover the fireboye are doubtless cheortully pleased to show their
alertness on any occaBion, at any
hour. Heretofore Rossland citizens
have plunged in wild amaze on
to Columbia avenue at the faintest
sign of alarm, AlarmB were in
those days infrequent but when
ever they did occur persons invaded the street no matter what the
state of their habiliments, or threw
open their windows, inviting a
reckless rush of cold air. Hence
tnlds were as frtqueut aB the
alarms. Now Rosslanders do not
s'ir and simply smile at the vagaries of the officials or the witty
efforts of young gentlemen out late
0' nights. The doctors may be
grumbling but really there is nobody eles that has any kick coming.
MISREPRESENTATION.
While the Wom.n bas no wish
to say that the press iu general deliberately misrepresents the Bide of
labor,   in fact   there   is   much to
show that this is not the case, it is
absolutely   true that too often the
publication of items of news, professedly authentic,   are   put   into
print tending to throw doubts upon
the efforts of labor, which are almost enlirely fonndationless. Take
for instance tbe recent publication,
not only  iii this province, but in
'.he leading journals os the Old and
New world, of "news" which tends
tashow that Australia is a  failure
because of its labor legislation.   A
notable case  in  point of view, it-
that of a letter   published in the
London   Times,   and  widely pub
lished afterwards in essence iu tbe
United Slates and in  this country,
professing to give the views cf certain emigrants frOTa Australia who
were leaving the country because of
the impossibility of liviug-under its
social conditions which make the
attainment   of  wealth practically
inipoesible.    The Agent General oi
New Zealand  took   the  trouble lo
hunt down the alleged facts which
were slated to have  been gathered
upon some steamer outbound from
Australia.   It was f und that there
was only one emigrant, and that a
woman of the servant classes, who
had made no prolonged sojourn in
the Antipodes.   Upon  this slender
foundation tbe proas over the whole
English speaking  world publish so
called news, condemning the Aus
tralian polity, and many an editor
ial has been written condemnatory
of tbe same.   This is hardly fair
treatment, anfl certainly will in the
end succeed in  nothing except in
making the average man distrustful
of his newspaper.   Three parts ol
the  newspapers in this  continent
are successful, three parts iu Aus-
ralia   are   Ihe   reverse.   On this
continent the newspaper is too
often entirely subordinate to the
busincBB end, whereas on the other
tho reverse obtains. As to Ihe labor question, although it is certain
that the pretensions of the labor
unions of tbe Victorian railroad?
led to altnoBi anarchistic condition?
it is absolutely certain that the
great Australian public through its
government, promptly put thoBe
misguided men in their proper
place without deranging the machinery of government or subjecting business to suoh disaster aud
dangers as would inevitably have
attended il on (his continent in a
similar crisis. Then again in this
labor country of Australia we are
told on excellent authority, which
ho conservative and capitalislioally
inclined a paper as the London
Mining Journal does not attempt
to conlravert, that mining in Western Australia, with a higher coat for.|
mining supplies is cheaper than in
South Africa,albeit the one employs
exclusively white and the other
almost exclusively black labor. It
is not a fair argument to tiBe the
miefortu'ies of a country, due a
hundred different causes, to labor
legislation. Wben misfortune assails a capitalistically governed
country, the moneyed would consider it rank anarchy to put to his
capital the commercial crisis which
has occurred, find often enough
he is right as lo his shoulders
being free of the total burden of
the blame. But what is true of
him should also be true of labor
As long as condiiions are fixed
there is no trouble in procuring
capital. Australia and New Zealand aro labor ridden, it is said, but
a glance at the columns of tbe
financial papers will show that it
is just as easy for them to borrow
money as it is for other countries
which pursue the reverse policy.

M. BOURASSA TALKS RIGHT OUT
Declares Alverstone Justified in th»
Finding by Facts of the
Case.
The following argument was
presented by Mr. Bouraesa in the
discussion on the Alatka Boundary
award in the Dominion House:
A good many things, he Baid,
had been said and written on this
question which tended to give rise
to feeling between Canada and the
United StateB which ought lobe
avoided. It ehould be remembered
that the question referred to the
tribunal was the interpretation ol
the treaty of 1825, concluded between Great Britain and Russia. He
explained the questions at issue,
and said that a study of the British
blue book and of the diplomatic
correspondence at the time of the
treaty would justify the conclusion
that Russia's enjoyment of the Btrip
of territory in dispute was to be
uninterrupted, and that Great Britain had no right to the inlets running into Alaska. The purpose of
the treaty of 1825 was to get rid of
the ukase of Alexander I, under
whioh Russia set up the preposterous claim lo the ownership of
Bering Sea for a distance of 100
miles from   the  coast.   To show

that Great Britain cared nothing
for the strip of latd now the sub
ject of dispute, Mr. Bourassa gave
excerpts from the correapondence
between the British Ambassador at
St. Petersburg in 1824 and the
home Government. The British
Government at that time was wil
ling to make a concession to Rub
sia which would have taken in the
whole of the Yukon Territory. Mr.
Canning.in fact.suggested a strip of
land 100 miles wide, wbioh would
have taken in the whole of the
Rocky Mountains. The negotia
tions of that day were conducted
by the British Government with
special reference to the interests of
tbe Northwest and Hudson's Bay
Company. It was finally deter
mined that the mountain range,
and, failing that, ten marine lea
gues, should constitute the line of
demarcation between British and
Russian possessions. Tbe British Government realized that
the Uritish settlers would he
excluded from reaching the
sea, but the Russian Government
offered lo allow them free access,
and the offer was accepted. Under
the treaty, therefore, the British
were excluded from the bays and
inlets, but they accepted in lieu of
that the right of free navigation of
the rivers and of the streams.
With reference to the use of the
word "ocean, Mr. Bourassa agreed
with Lord Alverstone that it did
not obscure the intention of the
parties, and in the absence ol
mountains the line must parallel
the sinuosities of the ooast.
The strongest proof of all, however, lay in the treaty between the
Hudson's Bay company and tht
Russian American oompany, under
which the former leased from the
latter the strip of territory now in
question.

TO PURCHASE
THE LIGHT
and the
Alderman Daniel Makes a
Move.
THINKS PROJECTQUITE FEASIBLE
Notice Is to Be Given to the Company-City Will Now Resume Franchise.
"Yes," said Alderman Daniel, in
according an interview to a representative of the World.   "I have
brought up the matter of the lighting   franchise,   because  I thought
the time  was ripe for  such aotion
to be taken.   The mayor had signified his intention of reducing the
lighting of the city,   by substituting incandescent for aro lights.   In
my judgment the saving will be in
all  probability trifling, and if the
city is   to   acquire   the   lightning
franchise it will be unnecessary as
a much larger saving will be made.
Moreover as the city  is evidently
taking a decided turn for the better, and as the influx of population
which   will   certainly   fill up the
camp, is sure to come in now that
concentration  has proved to be a
success, and many a mill will now
start up within the next season, the
lime is  certainly come, even  if it
had not arrived four years ago, for
taking over our own lighting. As to
the giving of notice to the present
holders of tbe franchise, of the intention ol the city to take over the
lighting  itself, it is certainly due.
In fact I have been  contemplating
it for some  time past, and my action has perhaps been  accelerated
by   the  conditions   newly arisen,
which I have juBt pointed out. According to the charter which the
West   Kootenay   Power  company
now holds, notice of the intention
of the city to take over the oontraot
must be given not later than six
months before the expiry of the charier.    As the charter expires on the
beginning of August next,if a notice
is given, that notice must be given
at any time prior to the beginning
of February next.   Time must be
given for the making of the necessary Arrangements and  the giving
of the notice three   months befoie
the last day in which it can be le-
galy tendered, is by no means pre-
matuie in  my  estimation.   Moreover it is a bad thing to let suoh a
thing remain over until the time
juBt succeeding the municipal elections when tbe new oounoil, barely
familiarized   with   their new conditions, will hardly be in a position to deal with the matter.
"We will have to submit a money
bylaw to the people." continued
the finance minister, "but I do not
think there should be any trouble
about that in the minds ot the ratepayers. It is ni t as if we were
borrowing money for noiireinuuera-
tive outlays. We are asking for
money whioh will not only immediately bear a good profit, but
whioh also serve as a valuable
asset, if the lighting franchise is
purchased, when he oity wishes to
extend its water system.
''What will be the amount of
money to be raised," repeated Mr.
Daniel in answer to a query. "Well
that will be a matter of negotiation
You will remember that the Lighting and Power company wished to
sell the oity the lighting and the water together for a sum approximating 180,000. About half the money
was given for the water
lighting allowed to remain over for
another five yearB. 80 you oan
form your own oonolusions. Theer
is really little to purchase beyond
the poles and wires, and the old
disused plant at the foot of Spokane
street, whioh we would be bound to
take over. Aocording to the terms
of their charter the Power company are bound to keep their
books in suoh shape so that they
oan easily be audited. The vice-
president lately deolared that the
affairs of the oompany were in
good shape, and really there is no
reason why they Bhould not be inasmuch as there is no city in Canada, to my knowledge whioh uses
the profusion of electric lights as
does Roasland. The really valuable thing we acquire is the franchise. I have no doubt that the
Power company is clearing at least
$1000 a month.
"Besides getting this profit for
ourselves.whichjwould be more than
doubly sufficient lo meet the interest and sinking fund on the loan
proposed to be raised, we would
ave on our lighting pretty nearly
enough to meet the interest. You
see the city has now to pay for the
lighting of the streets and of the
public offices, such as the fire hall
and oity hall. In faot the extra
revenue derived from the lighting
will be sufficient to deliver the city
from many a little financial worry
from whioh it at present suffers.
"As to the power," went on the
Chairman of the Finance Committee, "that is easily enough settled.
We will not be cinched by the
West Kootenay Power oompany by
any means. We can go to them of
course, in fact I think we should go
to them, but if they prove to he unreasonable we oan go to the Nelson
municipal power plant, which is to.
be erected next summer, and should
they fail us we can go to the Cas-
oade company whose plant is as accessible to this camp as is Bou-
nlngton Falls. Failing this we
can put np a plant of our own on
Trail Creek or use temporarily the
old lighting plant on Spokane
street. There will be no trouble
about the power," said Mr. Daniel
significantly.

WAKING UP

QUESTION OF THE STIPENDIARY
The
Lighting   Franchise and
Mayor's Desire to Shade
the Streets.
the
The city oounoil had an interesting meeting on Tuesday evening,
and several subjects were touched
upon affecting more or less the
welfare of the camp. Chief among
these was the notice given by Alderman Daniel of his intention at
the next regular meeting of the
council to introduce a resolution
signifying theintention of the city to
resume the lighting franohise, the
desire of the mayor to make a
trifling saving by cutting down the
expenditure on light, and a discus
sion as to the appointment of W.
J. Nelson as stipendiary magistrate
(without a stipend) as well as city
solicitor.
The lighting franchise has been
dealt with elsewhere in these col
limns, in the form of an interview

with Alderman Daniel, who is perfectly explicit in declaring his intentions in this regard, if he can
find himself backed up by the council. He, apparently, has little fear
as to this aB the man who opposes
such a resumption of franchise will
probably find it hard work lo satis
fy Eosslanders when Beeking reelection. Moreover as the matter
will eventually have to be turned
over to the citizens for their vote
the aldermen oan well refrain from
obtruding their own personality
and thus give the citizens an opportunity, to deolare their wishes.
Mayor Dean's intention with regard to the culling down of the
light is to substitute 32 candle
power incandesoents for the present
arc lights in several localities. He
has not apparently worked out
what will be tho cost of doing this,
nor are any figures immediately
available in consequence as to the
actual amount that can be saved.
To many of the council the proposal seemed to savor somewhat of
cheeseparing, and if the light be
taken over the whole matter will be
under a different purview.
The third matter, that of the
appoiolrnent of W. J. Nelson as
stipendiary by the Provincial Secretary Hon. A. S. Goodeve, gave
rise to some discussion. Naturally
enough Ihe city council wanted to
know why they had not been consulted in the matter ar.d asked the
mayor as a police commissioner
how it was that thi? hid happened
and on whose recommendation the
appointment had been given. Tbe
mayor knew nothing but later ad
milted that he did know but was
not inclined to tell (for reasons of
slate, doubtless.) Pressed he
thought that as Police Magistrate
Boultbee was present he did not
like to hurt his feelings by going
into the question publicly. Mr.
Boultbee waived all regard to his
feelings being paid but still bis
worship would not talk. The
council then wanted to know how
the cilysolicitor could also act as
stipendiary but this the mayor de
clared was a matter for the Provincial Government not for the council. That question, therefore, altio
remained unanswered. The council thought that the stipendiary
would be wholly in their power inasmuch as he had no salary as
stipendiary but only one as city
solicitor terminable, of course, at
the the pleasure of the council.
Which is very nice and quite according to Cocker. However the
matter dropped and may or may
not bo taken up later on. Some
of the Aldermen, notably Messrs
D.vniel and Embleton and Talbot
protested Alderman Dunlop, who
is also a police commissioner, declared ho know nothing of the
matter either as a councillor or al
commissioner, leading generally to
the wonderment of ovcybody present as lo who did know and as lo
why bo much secrecy had been
preserved and to what end? Alderman MoKlohan alto deolared that
this was the first he had heard of
the whole affair. Whioh closed
something of a stormy meeting.

that ia felt in Canada for the present day statesmen of the mother
have to stand up because there ia a
shortage of coaches in the equipment of the two roads. For the
same reason the C. P. R. will not
run special trains in August.   The
land and their inadequate appreci- communities    which    have   been
accustomed to enjoy excursions on
special trains muBt pay full fare
and go by the regular trains or
walk. Worse even than the loss or
pleasure involved in the abolition
of special trains and excursions on
the C. P. R. is the lose of money
involved in the dislocation of business that Bhould be handled by
both roads. A waytreight that
should leave Hamilton in the early
morning, and be due in Toronto at
eleven, will be side tracked in the
suburbs at 5.45 in the evening. It
was reported the other Sunday that
not less than five hundred cars of
freight were on sidings at Toronto
Junction, with no locomotives to
move them.
The Grand Trunk and C.  P. R.
cannot    achieve   the  impossible.
These roads were equipped according to their managers' estimates of
Ontario's traffic producing possibilities.    Ontario's demands ran   far
in excess of these   estimates.   The.

atiou of the measure of justioe that
is due this greatest of the colonies.
While Mr. Gourley, of Colchester,
may in many things fly wide of
the mark of public feeling, ho will
find many today who say "hear,
hear" to his bitter comment upon
the latest fraud upon this country,
and bis conclusion that the English statesmen whose indifference
has made possible the open, wholesale robbery of Canada "go about
wearing Minders,"
And the most significant feature
of the whole matter is found in the
unchallengeable fact that throughout the length of the Dominion, the
decision now officially announced
had been long since anticipated, in
a foregone conclusion that Britain
would neither assert nor zealously
seek to maintain the rights and
interests of her colony—that Great
Britain today would be found
ready to do injustice to her own in
wooing the friendship of a. foreign
nation.
It is the old story retold of the
policy ol imposition upon true
loyalty which cost Britain her
American colonies: Canadians
pray earnestly that it may not be
persisted in to the extreme of a
similar ending.
The indignation that is felt in
Canada at the result of the Alaska
Boundary matter rise above the
plane of anger or of hostility born
of irritation. It is in deepest sorrow that Canadians Bee the statesmen of the old land stumbling in
self satisfied blindness, fawning
upon a foreign country that laughs
contemptuously at undeserved concessions to itB friendship, and simultaneously weakening wantonly the tieB of love, born of reaped,
that blind unjustly treated Canada
to the Empire.
The Canadian commissioners
were right in withdrawing from a
commission that had proven farcical—a trial which, having affirmed
the justice of the material contentious of Canada, proceeded to
enunciate a finding directly contradictory.
The giving to the United States
of islands at the entrance to Portland canal, not properly Canadian
by the terms of the award itself
and whose only apparent value is
strategic in commanding the entrance to Port Simpson, is another
incident which cannot but impress
intelligent Canadians as emphasizing the fatal blindness of England's
statesmen who thus would contentedly defeat at one move the Imperial importance of the new national
transcontinental highway in their
pursuit of the phantom of an
American friendship that is not to
be won by unworthy sacrifice of
Canada.—Vancouver World.

WHITE LABOR CHEAPEN
The important contribution
which we published lately from the
pen of H. 0. Hoover, indicating
that the cost in Western Australia
with white labor are considerably
below thoee of the Rand with black
on similar types of ore, has drawn
from "The South African Mines
Commerce and Industries," the
following remark: "These figureB
afford plenty of food for reflection
and analysis. One important factor is very obvious—the low coBt ol
mining in the Kalgoorlie district
When we lake into consideration
tho facts that Westralia possesses
a younger mining industry than
the Transvaal, that labor is dearer,
consistency wi:h values in
hard qunrlz reefs is by no
means idealized, whilst mines
are not t quipped on the same large
basis that the Rand is, the low cost
of mining is somewhat surprising
Gravitation and supplies must
then be turned to explain this apparent anomaly." Supplies do
not explain the anomaly, aB the
percentage which they bear to the
total working costs is higher in
Western Australia than on the
Rand. Mr. G. A. Denny, in his
work "Deep Level Mines of the
Rand," says that supplies are 34 5

MILKAMEEN CITY, B. C.
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. <2.
CAMP HEDLEY is the moBt talked of camp in the provinoe, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mineB have expended $300,000 in development and are at
pVesent building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will oost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in tho valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Pacific Northwest. It waa only a short time ago
that lots in RosBland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were Belling for the same price that they are today being Bold
for iu Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Paoifio railways are starting immediate oonstruotion for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Pacific coast they will become the main through lines, being' the shortest route from Ihe interior to the coaBt. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the weBt addition, the only available timber for milea around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
towueite which is located in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia,

the percentage in Western Australia as follows: Murchison district
38.3 per cent, Mount Leonora 42 28
per cent. Kalgoorlie about 40 per
cent. This ahows that the percentage that supplicB bear to the total
cost of working exceeds that on
the Rand by at least five per cent.
Supplies therefore will not explain
the anomaly. What the writer
means by the statement that gravi
tation will account for the difference of 4s a ton on free milling
ores we do not know. The anomaly
which, with all deference to our
contemporary, we regard aB real, is
susceptible of a very much easier
explanation, which we believe will
not be lost either on the financial

SYNOPSIS

Britain, begins to recount his early ad.

and sails on a trading voyage to Cornwall and marries a British princess. Is
attacked and captured by the Romans.
Escapes and is murdered by the Druids.
Is born again iu later Roman Britain.

CHAPTER III (Continued)
Many were the details oi that
strange blue record I have not
mentioned; many are the strokes
and nourishes that still expand and
contract to the pulsations of
my mighty life—undeciphered,
unintelligible. But I have said
enough to show you how ingenious
it was—how sufficient in its variety
how disappointing in its pointless
end. For, indeed, it stopped suddenly at the twentieth season, and
the cause thereof I oould guess only
too welll
There, in that Roman hotel, I
stayed reflecting. It was in this
rest house, from the idle gossip of
the loungers and chatter of Roman
politicians, that I came to comprehend the extent of my sleep in the
cave, and aB the truth dawned
upon me, with a consciousness of
the infinite vacuity of my world, I
went into the garden, and there
was no light in the sunshine, and
no color in the flowers, and no
music in the fountain, and I threw
my toga over my head and grieved
for my loneliness, with the hum of
the crowd outside in my ears, and
mourned my fair Princess and all
the anoient times so young in
memory yet bo old in faot.
Many days I sorrowed purposeless, and then my grief was purged
by the good medicine of hardship
and more adventure.
CHAPTER IV
One day I was Bitting in gloomy
abstraction in the sunny garden,
when, looking up suddenly, a little
maid stood by demurely and some
what compassionately regarding
me. Grateful then for any sort of
sympathy, I led her to talk, and
presently found, as we thawed into
good fellowship, drawn together by
some mutual attraction, that she
was of British birth, and more—
from my old village 1 This was
bond enough in my then state; but
think how moved and pleased I
was when the oomely little damsel
said, 'Ob, yes! it is only you Roman lords who come and go more
often than these flowers. We British seldom move; I and my people
have lived yonder on the coast for
ages!' Bo I let my lonely fancy fill
in tbe blanks, and took the little
maid for a kinswoman, and was
right glad to know someone in the
void world into which four hundred years' sleep bad plunged me.
Strang, too, as you will take if
Numidea, who, now and then to
my mind was bo like the ancestress she knew naught of: Nu-
mindea, the slave 'girl who stood
who stood before me by predestined ohance in that hour of sorrow-
it was she who direoted my destiny
and saved and ruined me in this
chapter, just as her mother had
done distant lifetimes before!
Between this fair little friend
and my inexhaustible wallet I
dried np my grief, and turned idle
and reckless in that fasoinating
town of extravagance and debauchery.   It was not a  time  to  boast
had lost their valor and most ol
their skill in the arts of government. All their hardihood and
strength had sunk under tbe evil
example of the debased capital by
the Tiber; and, though some few
unpopular ones amoung them railed against the effeminate luxury of
the times, few heeded and none
were warned. It shamed me to
find that all these latter day Romans thought of was silks and
linens, front seats at the theatre,
pageantry and spectacles, trinkets
and scents. It roused my disdain
to Bee the senators go by with gilded trains of servitors and the
young centurions swagger down
the streets in their mock armour—
their toy, peace time swords hanging in golden chains from their
tender Bides, and the wind warning
one of their perfumed presence
even before they came in eight.
Such were not the men to win an
empire, I thought, or to hold il!
As for the native British, a modicum of them had dropped the
sagum for the toga, and had put on
with it all its vices but few of its
virtues. Such a witless, vain, incapable medley of arrogant fools
never before waB seen. To their
countrymen they represented themselves as possessed of all the keys
of statecraft and government, stirring them up as far as they durst
to discontent and rebellion, while
to their masters they stood acknowledged sycophants and apes
of all the meannesses of a degenerate time. AU this was the more
the pity, for magnificent and wide
were the evidences of what Rome
had done for Britain during the
long years Bhe had held it. When
I slept, it was a chaotio wild, peopled by brave but scattered tribes;
when I awoke, it was fair, united
realm—a beautiful territory of
fertility, rioh in corn and apple
yards, arteried by smooth white
paved roads and ruled by half a
dozen wonderful capitals, with
countless lesser cities, camps, and
villas wherein modern luxury, like
a rampant, beautiful flowered parasite, had overgrown, and choked
and killed the sturdy stuff on
which it grew.
Well, it is not my province to
tell you of these things. The gilded fops who thronged the city ways
I soon found were good enough for
drinking bouts and revelry, and,
by all Olympus! my sleep bad
made me thirsty and my Borrow
full of a morosenesH which had to
be constantly battened down undor
the hatches of an artificial pleasure.
All the old cautious, frugal, merchant's spirit had gone, 111 d the
Roman Phra, in his gold and turquoise cinoture, his belt full of hiB
outlandish, never failing coins, was
soon the talk of the town, the life
and soul of every reckless bout or
folly, the terror of all Motors and
honest, benighted citizens.
And, like many another good
young man of like inclinations, his
exit was as sudden as his entry!
Well I remember that ■ day, when
my ivory tablets were crowded with
suggestions for new idleness and
vanities, and bore a dozen or two
of merry engagements to plays and
processions and oarnivals, and all
my new found world looked like
a summer sea of pleasure.   Under
muoh of.   The degenerate Romans these circumstances I went to  my
hoard one evening, as I had done
very often of late, and was somewhat chagrined to discover only
five pieces of money left. How
ever, they were big plump ones,
larger than any I had used before,
and, aB all those had been good
gold, these still might mean a long
spell of frolic for me—when they
were nearly spent it would be time
to turn serious.
I at once Bat down to rub thi
general green tint of age from one,
notioing it was more verdant than
any of its comrades had been, [[and
rubbed with increasing consterna
tion and alarm moment after
moment, until I had reduced it at
laBt to an ancient British copper
token, a base, ebominable thing,
not good enough to pitch to a starving beggar1
Another and another was snatch-
up and chafed, and, aB I toiled on
by my little flickering earthern
lamp in my baohelor cell, every one
of those traitor coins in an hour
had shed its ooating of time and
turned out under my disgusted
fingers common plebeian metal.
There they lay before me at length,
a contemptible five pence wherewith to carry on a week's carousing.
Five pence! Why, it was not
enough to toss to a noisy beggar
outside of the circus—hardly
enough for a drink of detestable
British wine, let alone a draught of
the good Italian vintages that I
had lately come to look upon ae
my prerogative! and as I gazed at
at them stolidly, that melancholy
evening, the airy castle of my
pleasure crumbled from base to
battlement.
As the result of long cogitation-
knowing the measure of my friends
too well to think of borrowing of them—Ifinally decided to
muke a retreat, and leave my acquaintance my still unblemished
reputation in pawn for the various
little items owing by me. Taking
a look round, to assure to myself
everyone in the house was asleep, I
argued that tonight, though a
pauper, I was still of good account,
whereas with daylight I should be
a discredited beggar; so that it was
in fact, a meritorious action to
leave my host an old pair of sandals in lieu of a month's expenses,
and drop through the little window
into the garden, on the way to the
open world once more. Necessity
ia ever a sophist.
It is needlesa to say the grey
dawn was not particularly oheerful
as I sprang into the city foBse and
struck out for the woods beyond.
Tbe fortune whioh makes man one
clay a gentleman of means and the
next a mendicant is more pleasant
to hear of when it has befallen
one's friends than to feel at first
hand. It was only the fear of the
detestable city jail and the abominable provender there, added to the
ridicule of my friends, perhaps,
that Bent me, BcriplesB, thus afield.
Grey as the prospect ahead might
be, behind it was black, bo I plodded on, with my spear for a staff
and Melancholy for a companion.
The leafy shades reached in an
hour or so invited rest, and in their
seclusion an idle Bpell was spent
watching, through the green frame
of branches, the fair, careless city
below wake to new luxurious life;
watching the blue smoke rise from
the temple courtyards, and the
pigeons circling up into the" sky,
and the glitter of the sun on the
legionaries' armB as they wheeled
and formed and reformed in the
open ground beyond the Prefeot's
houBe. Oh, yes! I knew it all!
and how pleasantly the water
spluttered in the marble baths after
those dusty exercises; and how
heavy the lightest armour waB af te
suoh nights as I and those jolly
ones down there were accustomed
to spend! As I, breakfastless, bent
upon the top of my staff, I reoalled
the good red wine from my host's
ooolest cellars and the hot bread
from slaves' ovens in the street,
and how pleasant it was to lie in
silk and sandals, and drink and
laugh in the shade and stare after
the comely British maids, and lay
out in those idle sunny hours the
fabrics of fun and mirth.
On again, and by midday a valley opened before me, and at the
head, a mile or so from the river,
was a very stately white villa.
Thither, out of curiosity, my steps
were turned, and I descended upon
that lordly abode by coppices,
ferny brakes, and pastures, until
one brambly field alone separated
us. An ordinary being, whom the
Fates had not Bet themselves to
bandy forever in their immortal
hand, would have gone round this
enclosure, and so taken the uneventful pathway, but not so I; I
must needs cross the brambles, and
thus bring down fresh ventures on
my head. In the midst of the enclosure was an oak, and under the
oak five or eix white cows, with a
massive bull of the fierce old British breed. This animal resented
my trespass, and, shaking his head
angrily as I advanoed, he came
after me at a trot when half way
across. Now, a good soldier knows
when to rnn no less than when to
stand, and so my best foot was put
forth in the direction of the house,
and I presently slipped through a
hole in the fence directly into the
trim gay garden of the villa itself.
So hasty was my entry that
I nearly ran into a stately proces
sion approaohing down one of the
well kept terraces intersecting the
grounds; a seneschal and a butler,
a gorgeous arrayed mercenary or
two men and damsels in waiting,
all this lordly array attending a
litter borne by two negro slaves,
whereon with a languidness like
that of convalescence, belied, however, by the bloom of excellent
health and the tokens of robust
grace in the every limb, reclined a
handsome Roman lady. There
was hardly time to take all this in
at a glance, when the gorgeous attendants set up a shout of consternation and alarm, and, glancing
over my shoulder to see the cause,
there was that resentful bull bursting the hedge a scanty twenty
paces away, with vindictive purpose in his widespread nostrils and
angry eyes.

and Miss Mabel Inez
Whitney
There was a very charming wedding on Wednesday morning in the
Church of St. George with the
rector the Rev. John A. Cleland
ofliciating. The contracting parties
were J. Ii. Mosely and Miss Mabel
Inez Whitney.
Mr. J. B. Moseley is in the timber land business and is a resident of Spokane, being the son of
H. M. Moeoly formerly of Rochester, New York, where he was a
manufacturer, but who is now also
resident in Spokane, where he is
interested in real estate.
Miss Mabel Whitney is the only
child of John L. Whitney, the well
known slock broker of this oamp
where he has been located for the
past seven years. Mr. Whitney is
related to tbe well known New
York family of that name but is a
native of Wisconsin.
The wedding, which was called
in the good old fashion by banns,
the banns being called both here
and in Spokane for the  last three
near, well known in sooial ciroles
in this city but who is new resident with her father in Spokane,
coming up here for her friend's
marriage.
The bride was attired in a pretty
wedding gonn of pearl grey

Dealing with the Portland Channel, he said he was all at sea aB to
the decision of tbe majority of the
commission. In Ihe first part of
the case, aB to the strip of land,
Lord Alverstone had acted strictly
in a judicial way, but in regard to
Portland Channel he played the
role of a diplomat. The four islands should have gone to one
country or the other.
Mr. Bourassa said that as to the
strategic value of the  two   islands
awarded to the United  States, he
did not think   that amounted   to
much, for in case of war  with   the
republio we would have enough to
do to defend other ports of Canada.

Instead of concentrating our indignation on a learned Judge,  four
fifths of whose judgement was justi
sed by facts,   it would   be  more
fitatesraanlike to go to the root of
the matter.   The  moment   Great
Britain voluntarily decided not to
couple the Alaeka boundary question with   the   settlement  of  the
Clayton Bulwer treaty our case was
lost,because it was left to be decided
by judicial arbitration, and, in his
mind, we had no case bo far as the
junicial aspect was concerned.   At
tbe time we were giving our blood
freely on the soil of Afrioa, Chamberlain was coldly  sacrificing   the
interests of Canada, as they  were
connected with tbe Clayton-Bulwer
treaty and the Alaskan boundary.
Tho tervices had very often   been
on one side and  the favors  very
little on tbe other ejdt.

HAND A GOOD ASSORTMENT OF
Gents Furnishings
Clothing and Shoes
Bought cheap, at less than half price for you. From
the last fire we have left a number of articles just
slightly damaged by water which we will dispose of
at a much lower price than you will pay elsewhere
as long as they last.
