THE -��� PIIQS7EC70II
BY  W.  D.   PRATT.
The Miner contains a legal notice from the provincial secretary's
office dated, 22 August 1864. The
Miner's "pull" evidently began a
long while ago.
It is better that the friends of bimetallism do not Underestimate
the strength of their opponents,
And that they do not count the
battle won when in fact it is only
just begun. While tlie bimetallic
Sentiment is spreading in all the
leading countries, there is not yet
a leading nation controlled by bimetallism. The editors of some
lending Canadian papers have not
yet hHiked on both sides of the
question. An unp'redjudiced study
of finance converts the intelligent
student���be he peasant or statesman���to bimetallism.
enjoyment of his "right lo life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness" crumble to the dust and we
are helpless in the hands d the
mob.���Cceur d'Alene Miner.
Governor Altgeld of Illinois has
had fame thrust upon him. Chun-
cey M. Depey has called him "an
iridescent human humbug."
AMERICANISMS.
TI110 LATEST OUIKAGE.
[A fearless comment by a patriotic paper.[
Not since the murder of John
Kneebone has anything occurred tc
arouse the indignation of loyal
American citizens to the extent
caused by the expulsion of J. 3.
Mills from the Gem mine last week
by a band of masked ruffians. The
victim of this outrage is an old
resident of the Cteur d'Alenes, honest, industrious and respected. He
has a wife and two small children
dependent upon him for support,
and in a cabin about half a mile
up Placer creek they have lived for
live or six years, the husband and
.father spending his energy developing his claim adjacent to his cabin.
The tunnels which pierce the
mountains for hundreds of feet are
monuments of his industry and
perseverance. The last two years
have been extremely hard upon
men like Mr. Mills, who find 'it
necessary to go out and work for
wages occasionally in order to obtain money to live on while developing their own claims. Such
were the circumstances that compelled Mr. Mills to seek employment in the Gem mine last week,
lie had worked there before and
had been compelled to quit, because he refused to become a member of an organization which
Arrows no law but force, and which
has no .respect for the constitutional rights of American citizens.
He knew that he would probably
encounter opposition, but he must
have work and stern necessity compelled him to go. The result is
told in our news columns.
Thus is recorded another act in
the long list of villainies which
have driven prosperity from the
Cceur d'Alenes and caused outsiders to shun the district as they
would a country stricken by pestilence. But the most discouraging
feature of the situation is the abject submission of the people to the
tyranny that rules the Coeur
d'Alenes. The most sacred rights
of citizenship are violated, and
men either remain silent through
fear, or raise their servile voices in
palliation of the deed. A citizen
of the United States is peaceably
working to support himself and
family. He is driven away by a
gang of marked men and warned
never to return. In the name of
the sacred rights of American citizenship, we ask is there no redress?
tf the patriotic impulses of the
people of this district have become
so deadened that such outrages can
be committed without protest from
either citizens or officers, is there
ho higher power to which one can
appeal with hope of relief? If not,
then are onr boasted liberties a
'nere shadow, the safeguards
'h-fown arottrfft tHo citizen in   the
They Ofl en Possess Genuine Humor and
Sometimes l'oetie Force.
It is in phrasemaking and in
descriptive epithet that the American really shines, and here he is
unequalled. His turn for quaint
metaphor, his singularly quick eye
for resemblances between incongruous objects and his gift of picturesque resentment combine to
impart genuine humor and sometimes almost poetic force to the
best examples of his slang. "Tanglefoot," for instance, as an epithet
of ardent spirits, has well nigh the
force of poetry. It would almost
seem to have been invented, according to the best rules of that
art, by a man "with his eye upon
die object."
Take, again, the admirably
graphic expression to "pan out,"
with its realistic suggestions of the
patient labor of the gold washer
and the absolute finality of its results. What more expressive and
satisfying description of directness
of route could be given than a "bee
line?" Who would prefer the pale
negation conveyed in our "keyless
watch" to the concrete image which
is at once flashed upon the mind
by the term "Bteniwinder?" Or
our'pedantic and meaningless "perambulator" .to���another emission,
by the way, from Mr. Russells glossary���the graphic "push buggy" of
the Americans?
In the way of humorous analogy
few droller metaphors can ever
have occurred to the human mind
than that which describes the point
of a nail or tin tack [or wasp] as
its "business end." To "keep a
stiff upper lip," as a synonyn for
the display of firmness; to "keep
the eyes skinned," as an equivalent
for the maintenance of a vigilant
attitude; to "have a hard row to
hoe," for a difficult task to perform; to "take a back seat," for to
retire under circumstances of
humiliation from a position of undue prominence; to "have a brick
in the hat," for to be top heavy
with intoxication; to "waken
snakes," as the "last word" of dangerous and deliberately created
disturdance���all these are phrases
which ''palpitate with actuality."
They are the obvious coinage of an
intensely realistic and practical
race, of a people whose minds almost instinctively frame a visual
representation of incidents and objects which it is the habit of most
other nations to contemplate in the
form of mental abstractions.
It can hardly be maintained that
from the point of view of the external graces these locutions can be
regarded in all instances as ornaments to the literature of our common language. It is, however,
only fair to admit that many or
most of them, if outwardly inelegant, possess that intrinsically and
essentially literary quality of "expressiveness" in so high a degree
as to deserve pardon for their defects of form. And it is the satisfaction yielded by them to the universal human desire for the direct,
forcible and stimulating expression
of thought���a desire far older and
stronger than the literary instinct
���which has given some of them so
tenacious a hold upon English
speech on both sides of the Atlantic.���London Spectator.

 - When New York elected a

humorists of the east remarked
that the battle was to the Strong.
Such as missed this brilliant opportunity waited for the Chicago

THE  MODJSltN ROMANS.
[On the Nakusp it Slocan Hallway.]
Under the shining light of the  yellow sun of October,
,01ose by the side of the car truck, a
gang of Dagos were working.
I'ausing a moment to catch a  note
of their liquid Italian,
Finally I heard an echo of  Rome's
imperial accents,
Broken down forms of Latin words
from the senate and forum,
Nrow smothered over by use to  the
musical lingua Romana.
Then the thought came: Why, these
are the heirs of the Romans;
These are the s<ms of the men who
founded the empire of Caesar;
These are they  whose fathers   carried the conquering eagles
Over all Gaul and across the sea to
Ultima Thule.
The race type persists   unchanged
in their profiles and figures.
Muscular, short and thickset, with
prominent noses, recalling
.''Romanes rerum dominos, gentem-
que toga tarn."
See, LabinuB is   swinging   a   pick
with rythmical motion.
Yonder   one   pushing   the   shovel
might be Julius Cresar,
Lean, deep eyed, broad browed and
���  bald, a man of a thousand.
Farther   along   stands   the    jolly
Horatius Flaccus;
Grim and grave, with rings in  his
ears, see Cato the censor.
On the side of the street, in   proud
and gloomy seclusion,
Uossing the job, stood  a  Celt,   the
race enslaved by the legions,
Sold in the markets of Rome to meet
the expenses of Offisar,
And as I loitered tlie Celt cried out:
"Wurruk, ye Dagos!
������Full up your shovel, Paythro,  ye
hathen I'll dockyeesa quarter."
This he said to the one who resembled the great imperator.
Meekly the dignified Roman kept
on patiently digging.
Such are the changes and chances
the centuries bring to the nations
Surely the ups and downs of the
world are past calculation,
'���'Possibly," thus I thought to myself, "the j'oke of the Irish
"May in turn be lifted from us in
the tenth generation.
"Now the Celt is on top, but Time
may bring his revenges,
"Turning the Fenian down, once
more to be bossed by a Dago."

of silver to the ton.
The Professional Habit.
Here is a little tonsorial joke
which, whether true or untrue,
nmusingly illustrates the force of
habit. A hairdresser was summoned to a private house, the other
day, simply to shave a pet poodle.
The young lady of the house, hearing a sound of a voice in the room
in which the operation was being
performed, put her ear delicately
to the key-hole, and this is what
she heard:
"Nice day, sir. (Pause.) Razor
suit you, sir.? (Pause.) Good
deal of weather, sir, lately. (Pause.)
A little powder, sir? (Pause.)
Hair's very thin, sir, -*n the top;

Successful Mining Men,
Every success has been brought
about by men who have 'risen from
the ranks' or men of good business
judgement, without any school of
mines education. Take Mr. Glid-
den, of the Tiger, he was a success*
ful merchant. Pat Clark, of the
Poorman, was a miner, Charles
W. O'Ncil of the Mammoth had no
Freiberg knowledge. A. M. Esler,
who put the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mines and the Frisco mine
on its feet, had no mining college
training. A. B. Campbell, of the
Gem, was a conductor on the Union Pacific in the 70's, and John
A. Finch was a Milwaukee business man. Martin Curran, who
disclosed the big ore bodies of the
Morning, and made it possible for
the mine to sell, is simply a miner.
It ie he also who made the first
success of the Hunter at Mullan.
The Last Chance at Wardner wa^
operated successfully by Charles
Sweeney, who sold soap and candles in the early history of the
camp. The Sierra Nevada, Granite and Stemwinder were successfully worked by those well-known
philanthropists. George B. Mc-

so slow. It was in fact from two
to nine days ahead of all other

COUHT AT  NELSON.
The Miner says:
At the sitting of the County
Court just held two cases only
were of public interest.
Wren v. Springer was a claim
for a sj W310G performance of an
n;rrecincni. The plaintiff claimed
that Lewis, acting ns agent for
Springer, had .authorized him in
December last to sell the No, 1
claim at Trail Creek for $1,000 or
over. He made such pnle in February following, but it was repudiated by the defendant, Springer,
on the grounds, iirsl, that Lewis
was not his agent and, secondly,
that the offer, if imiib, Vri'P hot in*
tended to last for two mon'thi or
more. For the plaintiff, Mr, J. II.
Bowes an 1 Mr- J. B. MeArtlnu-.
For the defendant, Mr. K. B. Kerr.
His Honour gave a verdict for the
plaintiff, which will be appealed
against. The value of the claim
was very materially advanced by
a variety of circumstances between
December 1894 and February 1895.
Strobeok v. Retallnck. Mr. J. B.
McArthur.for plaintiff, Mr. J. H.
Bowes for defendant. This was a
case of the greatest importance in
this district ns it turns on the date
when the lease of a claim expires.
The Early Bird claim was recorded
on the 8th of May and the assessment work was recorded on the 8th
of May following. Plaintiff claimed
that the lease expired at midnight
on the 7th. His Honour reserved
judgement.
Another important ense tried at
Nelson was the one involving title
to the Bonton. Decision was in
favor of Adams, Brandon &.

Call Up Yukon.
When Mr. .1. Wilson, Supt. of
Western Div. of C. P. It. telegraph
'system, was in Kaslo last week he
related In detail to the writer the
history of telegraph construction in
British Columbia! how, previous to
the laying of the Atlantic cable, it
hud been proposed by the Western
Union company to build to Boring
straits and connect there with a
line across Russia. The Western
Union company had proceeded
with i*�� line as far as Fort Stager,
seven hundred miles lioni New
Westminster and 230 miles from
'Quesnellcmouth in the Cariboo
district when word fame that the
Atlantic cubic was a success. As
Vhere would therefore be no im-
taediate uso for the Bering sea
Voute, it was abandoned. A considerable immigration is going into
\he Cariboo this year and a largo
Vmigration to Alaska. The ft P.
R. is therefore considering the ad-
VisalMliiy "f repairing the old line
^0 Fort Stager, and continuing it
to vTnmtfvJi 111*4 nnrl the Yukon.

Arrives from St. Paul.
A. DOZEN SUB-CONT It ACTORS
Present,   Applying for  Section*  ot the
Work.      Engineer's Crews Locating the Line,      Barge  Will
Float in Two Weeks.
Two weeks ago we recorded the
arrival of Robt. Irving, secretary
pf the chartered railway company,
and, the Company's chief engineer,
/. H. Gray.
One week ago we recorded the
arrival of the contractors' chief engineer, W. F. Tye, 'and, also, Mr.
Munn, of the K. & S. Co,
Today we are privileged to announce the arrival of Mr. A. Guthrie, who has the contract for constructing the road; and of Dave
McBeth, J. McDonell, J. O'Leary^
Wm, McLean, and several others,
who assemble only where there is
a demand for their grading outfits.
Mr. Guthrie confirms the report
that active construction will com?
mence in a short time.
The engineer corpB is making
good progress in the location of the
Jine.
A party of engineers went out
this week as far as Sandon.
The first of the two barges to be
used in the transportation of material from Bonner's Ferry will, at
the present rate of construction, be
ready to launch in two weeks.
When the rest of the people of
Kootenay come to Kaslo to celebrate Her Majesty's Birthday,
they will see a part of the railway
.graded.	
The Tribune proposes to have a
convention of "independent voters"
at Kamloops, June 24th. Suppose
the nominee of that convention is
a free trader, what will the Tribune
do then? Or, suppose the nominee
���a protectionist by the name of
John Andrew Mara, would the
Tribune bolt him, or stand up to
the rack? The Tribune is so anxious that all other papers in the
district should specifically declare
themselves at all times, in season
and out of season, perhaps it will
tell us where it is at.
<W��T AT KASLO,
"This looks like old times in
Kaslo," was a common remark on
the streets this week.
Tlie county court convened at
Kaslo Tuesday morning, Judge
Spinks presiding.
The first floor of the Columbia
house was fitted up for the occasion, It is a suitable room and
only lacked a score or two more
chairs for tlie accommodation of
the audience to have made it all
right.
Clerk Giffen's desk stands immediately in front of the bench,
while protruding toward the center
of the'room is a long $able around
which the youthful members of the
Kootenay bar array themselves.
But for the presence of the Benior
member, Mr. Abbs, and for the
further fact that the word might
be frowned upon we would call it
the kid bar. Youthful is a better
word. Much better; much better.
At the tail end of the long table,
facing his honor or his worship or
Lordship���capital L.���or whatever
designation is appropriate in this
land of "Queen Victoria by the
grace of God" sits "Chief Justice"
Johnson ready to jump up four
times a minute whenever his case
is called. Other attorneys present,
besides the two already named, are
C. W. McAnn and Horace Wal-
pole Bucke, of the local bar; J. B.
McArthur, of Rossland; R. B. Kerr,
of New Denver, and  Elliott,
of Nelson. Elliot is the only one
of the lot whose name is not on our
subscription book, hence we don't
know his initials nor whether he
spells his name with two t's or one.
To insure your name being spelled
correctly in this paper it must be
on our subscription book: terms,
$2.50 per year payable in advance.
Near the center of the long table
the barristers have made a pyrar
mid of \\\pit h&ts, with Kerr's
broad-brimed cowboy Stetson at
the top of the heap. Sundry dogs
slumber beneath the table and behind the chairs reserved for the
jury but now occupied ��by politicians, litigants, serfs and fishmongers. Anon, as there is some
confusion in the audience Sheriff
Robinson sternly commands, "Silence." Sternly, did we say? Well,
his voice resembled that of the
Roman praetor when he said, "Let
the carrjon rot; there are no noble
men but Romans."
As the calling of the docket and
the trial of cases progressed, it became evident that the Judge is
clear headed and quickly grasps
the important points of such cases
as are new to him, lie can dispatch business rapidly when it is
necessary to do so; but he likes to
stay in Kaslo, so he wasn't in a
hurry this time and granted litigants plenty of time. A Nelson
lawyer���not a subscriber to this
paper���took 47 minutes by the
watch to question a witness regarding a seven-dollar meat house.
The Judge is a stenographer and
writes a shorthand report of the
proceedings as they proceed. This
is a convenience to the Judge; also,
to the juryman who has been out
the night before to the comique
and wants a chance to sleep undiscovered. The lawyers see the juryman sleeping, but say nothing for
fear of predjudicing their case.
Lawyers are permitted to appear
in court without night-dresses or
wigs on, and in this the Judge
Bhows his good sense.   The  shams
of^pfeit ageJiave no proper place
in this one.
Lawyers should not be permitted
to approach near enough to the
trembling witness in the box to
hypnotise him or blow their breath
in his face.   Call the next case.
Tuesday forenoon the following
cases were called and action had:
Robert Madden vs. McAndrews
���struck out with costs.
Lovatt Bros. vs. Lot Willey���
judgement for plff.
William Mclntyii and William
Toheck ,vs. Andrew J. Murphy et

pay $10 per month.
ANDERSON VS. TERRILL ET AL.
All of Tuesday afternoon was
taken up heaping plaintiff's witnesses in the Anderson versus Ter-
rill case. Wednesday afternoon
defendants' witnesses were heard.
Those of the audience who waited
patiently for two hours to witness
a sparring match between Lawyer
MeAnn and witness Mrs. Terrill,
formerly tyrs. Dryden, were not
disappointed. Witness was composed, qujee and keen at repartee.
Publishers of papers exchanging
with this paper will please notify
their mailing clerks that the 'latest
up-to-date addr'esjs of the 'Prospector is Kaslo, B. C.
One of the incidents in connection with one of the cases on trial
was the getting of a plaintiff's witness drunk by the defendant, and
the frantic efforts of the plaintiff to
sober the witness and keep him
corraled until called to the box.
