Every member of the city council
wag in his place on Monday night,
when tho regular meeting wan held.
Correspondence read: From David
Morris, Nelson, enclosing tender from
the General Electric Co. for a 500
light plant for the city, the price be
ing $2422, the bulk of the outfit being
f.o.b. at Peterborough; also stating
that he had written the Pelton Wheel
Co. to forward quotations on wheel.
Mr. Morris desired instructions to
proosed with the plans for waterworks
and electric light.
In this connection was read a letter
from Dr. Fagan, Victoria, containing
result of official analysis of water taken from Goat creek. It was declared
as pure as other creek waters, but it
contained a certain percentage of albuminoid ammonia, arising from decaying vegetable matter. A bill for
$ 10 accompanied the letter.
The mayor suggested getting an-
Ostlisai- sample of water from the proposed point of divurgencc on the
.week and having it analyzed. They
would not Iks able to do anything with
the system for a few weeks yet.
The communication from Dr. Fngan
was ordered filed and the bill paid.
Aid. M<*Callum and Worden moved
that Mr. Morris' letter be filed and
that the clerk thank him for the information afforded, but nothing could lie
done with the scheme just now. Carried.
A letter wa.s read from the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, Nelson, regarding
the Fletcher agreement on the mill-
site. They wished to kuow what the
city wanted, in order that they could
bring Fletcher to time, so ensuring
the purchase money lieiug paid over
to them. Letter laid on table, pending the major going lo Nelson.
Two communications were read
from the Ontario-Slocan Lumber Co.
The first inquired wheu the deeds of
the millsite would lie turned over to
them, as they did uot feel like pro-
s3eeding with the erection of their
main building, putting in sidiiigs,etc.,
till the whole matter was settled. The
second letter asked the council to pro-
ceed at once with protective works on
Springer creek, so as to safeguard
their site. The snows were deep and
they were apprehensive of a disastrous
Aid. McCallum was not aware that
the citv had agreed to flume Springer
ereek, but rather to save the site from
The agreement between the city and
tho com*>any was read, the aldermen
seeing things in a different light and
realizing what they were up against.
The mayor thought the company
was worrying over nothing. There
was no fear of the creek doing any
harm to tho millsite, but rather the
town need fear, as the creek was constantly wearing this way.
Various aldermen thought there
was nothing iu the agreement compelling the eity to flume the creek.nor
did it specify any set time in which to
construct protective works.
Aid McCallum moved that the clerk
notify the sawmill company that the
council were considering the question
of protective works. Seconilwl by
Aid. Smith.   Carrii I
The other letter regal lltu* the deeds
was received and filed, the clerk to
answer the letter, staling that the

Dlaaatreu* Fire Viaits.it the Lucerne Laat
New Denver experienced the worst
fire in her history last Thursday evening, resulting in the destruction of
property valued at fully .$21,000. It
broke out about 8 p.m. iu the Windsor
Hotel, owned by McLachlan & Mc-
Gillivray, having caught from a defective chimney, and before it could
be reached had spread beyond control
all over the building. A slight wind
was blowing at the time and actively
fanned the flames. McLachlan's
gents' furnishing store went next aud
then the big general store of J. B.
Smith & Co. Next the blaze spread
into the vacant Slocan Hotel, on Sixth
Street, owned by Henry Stege; then
the Teasdale block, alongside the
bridge, fell a victim. It was occupied
by W. Jeffrey, tinsmith.
The citizens worked with energy and
great judgment and succeeded in saving the * Clever property, St. James'
hotel, and the Bank of Montreal, each
of which was threatened by a continual shower of sparks. There being
no system of fire protection or a brigade, the citizens worked at a great
disadvantage, but they did nobly.
McLachlan saved aome of his stock,
as did Smith & Co. The loss on the
Windsor wa.s $5500, Smith s*c Co.
$10000, H. Stege S-3000. aud the Teas-

among the best recorded in the camp.
They gave .490 oz in silver and $14 in
gold per ton, or a net value on the
shipment of .12600.' There was a little
over 11 tons in the consignment, so
the returns figure out alioiit $'£H to

ImprAveinentsaiat Trail Smelter.
The inauguration of important improvements at the Canadian Smelting
wosks, Trail, is announced. The experiments in the refining department
of the smelter are practically completed, after having extended over a period
of nearly a year. N.-iw drawings ami
plans are being made for a refining
plant to produce from 10 to 12 tons ot
pure metallic lead per d.iy. An interesting feature of the plans is that
they will probably include apparatus
to treat the slimes for tiie production
of pure silver, pure gold and copper
-sulphates. Two large electric generators Iiate lx-*an ordered for the new
plant aad it is probable that two generators of twice the capacity of those
used for thc experimental work will
be purchased and installed at once,
making a battery of six generators.
The generators are utilized for transforming the alternating or three phase
electrical current into the direct current used exclusively in refiniug. The
electrolytic method of lead refiniug in
practice successfully at the Trail smelter has beon described at considerable
1 *ngth from time to time in the technical publications. Its merit lies in
economy of application and excellence
of results obtained. The statement is
made that the metallic lead produced
at the refinery in connection with the
smelter is of no less than .999 purity.
Sucs'eaaful Bund Dimes*.
Completo success, financially and
otherwise, fell to the lot of the Slocan
Brass Band with their annual mas
querade ball, given in the Music Hall
ssn Tuesday evening. The floor was
crowded with dancers, the costume.,
lieing varied and attractive. There
were a number of visitors present from
Silverton and New Denver and they,
with the townspeople, thoroughly enjoyed themselves, The music was fur
Dished mainly by the bnnd, relieved
just liefore supper by .Mr. and Mrs.
Adcock on the piano and violin, and
it was excellent. An abundance of
refreshments were served aud everything passed off without a hitch, the
net result lieing a handsome sum in
support of the band funds. Tho band
boys wish to especially thank the
ladies of the town for their generous
contribution of refreshments, nlso

The price of lead has been raised in
the United States. Eugene Braden,
manager of the works of the American
Smelting & Refining Co. at E.ist Helena, has received notice that his company had increased the price of lead
25 cents on the 100 pounds, that is $6
a ton for the metal. Silver is also
strong and there are evidences of continued advances.
For a long time the price to American lead producers has been .$3.50 per
hundred pounds. The price was fixed
by the American Smelting & Refining
Co., whose interests are so vast that
they practically control the market.
Of late the demand for lead and lead
ores has increased and thev determin-
d to raise the price. The shippers
receive the benefit. It appears

for the silver-lead miners, for not only
have the prices of their product been
raised, but the cost of treatment has
lieen lowered.
"Treatment charges are considerably lower than they have been," said
Manager Braden. "This, in connection with the increased price for lead?
makes tha outlook particularly good
to the mineowners at the present time.
Undoubtedly the favorable conditions
will result in the development of many
low grade properties now idle, anil
will also put in the dividend producing class mines that are not now paying profits,
"In raising the price of lead and reducing the treatment rates the Amor-
i -an Smelting ,& Ifafuiiiig Co. has in
mind the lwnefit to the ininvow"nj*r.
No part of that increased price is Te-
tnincd by the company. Iu the case
of large shipments it amounts to no
inconsiderable sum. We cannot predict what the price of silver will Ik*,
but indications point to advance. The
demand is strong, and that is about
all I can say about it."
This week the smelters raised the
price of lead another 15 cents on the
100 pounds.
Another blank is to lie recorded for
the week in local ore shipments, there
being i.o exports of any description.
A little moro ore has come down from
the Republic and Ottawa, but uot
enough for shipment, Next week the
Ottawa will probably have a car out,
as they are breaking down plenty of
mineral in their'stopes.
For 1902 the ore shipments from
the local division amounted to 88J38
tons, made up from 12 properties.

At Home at hu early date,
1 foot to dethrone J'-n- Martin, LIEUTENANT
Copvriaht, 1901, bv W. A. Page
Tbe well groomed and picturesque
young girl wbo bnd just ascended tbe
imposing flight of stone steps lending
to the northern eptrauee of the state,
war snd navy department building in
Washington paused nt the watchman's
desk Just inside the massive doorway.
"I wish to send a card to Lieutenant
John Hinds of the navy department,"
sbe said, with just u tinge of tbe aristocratic arrogance often to be found
within tbe exclusive circles of army
and navy official society.
Tbe watchman pondered. "Don't remember the name, miss," he said,
scratching his hend. "Are you sure It's
the navy and not the army?"
"Of course I am—the navy."
"Well, take a chnlr, miss, and I'll
look through the navy register. I
thought I knew most of 'em, but sometimes a new one comes from China or
tha Philippines, where he's won a commission, without ever entering this
bere department building."
"Lieutenant Hinds has not been
away from Washington ln four yenrs,"
said tbe young lady, "lt seems strange
you do not know him."
"No sucb name," declared the guard-
Ian of the door, slamming tke naval
register shut. "And let me tell you.
miss, you must have the name wrong,
since if he ain't In tbe naval register
be ain't any lieutenant in the navy of
your Uncle Samuel."
The young ludy became visibly annoyed.
"Kindly direct me to yonr superior,"
sbe said decidedly. "I bave made no
mistake fn tbe nnme. It is Lieutenant
John Hinds of tbe navy. He told me
to himself."
"Well, If you are so sure, it ain't for
me to say you're wrong," waa tbe kindly answer. "You might see the chief
clerk down thnt corridor to the left."
"Thank you," wns the reply, and tbe
young lady, evidently relieved, started
In the direction indicated. Sbe turned
tbe corner into the loug and dimly Illuminated corridor on tbe navy department side and run plump into a young
man who was acting as the motive
power for a rubber wheeled truck loaded with several stacks of books.
"I—I assure you—I beg your pardon"— he began.
"Oh—forgive me—It Is so dark"— she
liegan. Then—
"Why. Jack, here you srel"
The man uttered an exclamation of
surprise and annoyance. "The deuce"—
be began. "Why. Uettie, what are you
doing bere?"
"I wanted to see you," she commenced, "and I couldn't wait until after office hours. You see"—
"But, confound it," began the man—
• I mean, forgive me. Only you know
I always said I hated to receive visiters nt the office."
"I know, Jack, but mother ls ill. You
left tbe house before I came down to
breakfast Mother was worried about
tbe boarders and was afraid they'd nil
leave when they heard she was sick.
If you stay, they will all remain, because they all like you.  Besides"—
"Besides what, Uettie?"
"Well, I've been thinking about last
nlght-nnd the future—and—well, you
know, I Just couldn't stay away from
"The dearest little woman in tbe
world," be responded tenderly. "I was
a brute to speak so to you, but I wns
surprised at seeing you here tbe first
time, nud, besides, these books must
be taken Immediately to tbe secretary."
"Why, John," said tbe girl, "are you
carrying books and pulling that truck?
I ulways thought lieutenants and nitval
otiieers bad men to do things for tbem.
And do you know that horrid man at
thc door didn't know you and snisl
there wnsu't any Lieutenant Hinds."
"My dear girl," hurriedly ejaculuted
the young man, "do you mean to say
you have been asking ln tbis building for me?   Why In the world"—
"Oh. I'm sorry I enme now," murmured tbe girl, with a suggestion of a
sob. "I thought that my own lieutenant of the navy would be glad to see
"Of course I am," suit) the man
tenderly, yet anxiously. "There, forgive me, and I'll explain this evening
why I must not have any one culling
here at tbe office. The secretary becomes simply furious If nny of the
clerks—I mean any oue—receives com
puny. Even uow I am late, and the
secretary wants these books. Goodby.
dear, until Ibis evening."
The girl turned to go. A resonant
footstep on the marble floor of the al
most deserted corridor Interrupted
tbem. A tnll and dignified mnn strode
hy them In the soin Ida rk ness By the
feeble electric light he Saw the two
people and the truck of books.
"Hinds," broke In a steru and commanding voice, "take those books at
once to the office. When you have done
so, I wish to see you." And tbe secretary of tbe navy continued on bis
"Oh, Lord!" cried the mnn. "I'm done
for now! That was the secretary.
Hun along, quick.   1 must go."
"If you go, so will I. And 1 sball
tell tbls secretary wbnt I think of him
for being so rude to you. I see nothing wrong lu your speaking to me."
The man turned. "Walt for me here.
I might ns well fuce the music at
once." And, grabbing thc hnmlle of
tbe truck, be strode rapidly nfter the
vanishing figure of the secretary. He
reached the outer office of that official
without once looking behind blm. Then
he entered the secretary's private or-
(ice. The secretary had Just seated
"Hinds," be commenced, "1 am sorry
to see thnt you are entertaining Indies
lu the department during office hours.
Are you married?"
"No, sir." •***
"Then tbere Isn't even the excuse
that you are receiving a visit from
your wife. But I must have you distinctly understand that I do not approve of strange Indies or any kind of
ladles visiting meu In office. I don't
care who the lady is, and I don't wish
to know. I just want you to understand"—
"But you shall know who the lady
Is," broke In an Indignant voice. "I
urn Miss Hettle Neville, and I nm the
(liincee of Lieutenant John Hinds of
the United Stntes navy."
The secretary seemed puzzled. Hinds
sank Into a chair. The secretary was
the first to spenk.
"My dear young lady, I do not know
how you entered here or why you are
so indignant toward me. I do not wish
to secni to criticise your conduct, but
Hinds here has always been one of my
most faithful aids, and I do not wish
him to set a bad example to the others
in tbe office."
"Do you call getting mnrri, 1 a bad
example?" cried Hettle. "Why should
you find fault witb Lieuteunut Hinds
if his affianced wife wishes to speak to
him for a few moments?"
"Lieuteunut Hinds?" repeated the
secretary politely. "I do not know any
such lieutenant."
"No such lieutenant!" was the
amazed ejaculation. "Why, here is
Lieutenant Hinds before you."
The secretary leaned back in his
chair, laughing. Hinds seemed embarrassed. Hettle was becoming more
and more angry.   Hinds broke in:
"I am very sorry, Mr. Secretary," he
commenced, rising to his feet, "but I
have an unpleasant confession to make.
You see, sir, when 1 first got my Job
here some years ago we messengers in
the department fell to calling each other by titles, the same as the officers.
Three or four of us lived In the same
boarding house, and just for a lark we
used these handles at tbe dinner table.
Then I moved to the bouse kept by
Miss Hettie's mother, nnd the very first
day one of my chums touk diuuer with
me. All through the meal be kept on
using that Infernal "lieutenant.' I never
thought uny harm would come of it, so
I never contradicted it I never intended to deceive you, Hettie, and I was
going to tell you all about it tonight
I'll never do it again, sir, and if Miss
Hettie will accept a $000 a year messenger of the navy department Instead
of a real lieutenant, wby, sir, I'll promise sbe will never again interrupt me
when I'm carrying your books."
Tbe secretary was smiling. "Aud
will Miss Hettie accept tbe $900 a yeur
messenger?" be nsked.
"Oh, Blr," cried Hettie, "indeed sbe
will, nnd she's very sorry she was so
The secretary took up a pen aud
commenced to write. "Then that's all
settled." he said. "Now, 'Lieutenant'
John Hinds, take tbls paper to tbe appointment clerk. You are plnced on
the rolls as a special clerk at $1,200.
and are detailed for duty in my private
office. I wish you good morning. Permit me to congratulate you both."

The makers follow the primitive

Xet it May Lead tss Consumption anil  an
Early Grave.
If your blood is poor or watery, a
touch of cold or influenza will settlo
In your  lungs,  und the slight cough
of    today   may   turn to the racking
consumptive's cough of tomorrow.
Weak    lungs    are caused  by weak
■ blood; weak blood is an open invita-
I tion    for    consumption to lay upon
you the hand of death.
Stop that cough by enriching your
blood and Strengthening your lungs
with Dr, Williams' Pink Pills. They
make new, rich, red blood. They
add resisting power to the lungs.
Tliey have saved hundreds from a
consumptive's grave. Here is a positive proof that Dr. Williams' Pink
l'ills euro where other medicines fail.
Miss Katie Henry, Charloltetown.
P. B. I,, says: "Some months ago
I got caught in a rain storm, and
the wetting wus followed by a cold.
At lirst I paid but little attention to
it, but as tho cold clung to mo and
finally developed into a harking
cough, 1 became alarmed and consulted a doctor, who gave me a bottle of medicine, Unfortunately, it
did not help me, and I begun tsi
grow pule, lost in weight and niy ap-
petlte completely left mo 1 was no»v
regularly under the care of the doc-
ii*', who (old me my '..mgs were affected, anil that 1 was threaten' d
With consumption. The doctor's
treatment did not seem to ben fn
me iii this least. 1 grew BtsMtdily
Weaker, and finally was compelled to
remain In bs*d. At this time a friend
urged me to try Dr. Williams' Dink
l'ills. and erven brought me three
boxes before l finally consented to
take (hem. I have reason now to
bless my friend's persistence, because
1 felt better before the pills were all
gone, and 1 gladly continued the
treatment, and wus soon able to be
out of bed und take a walk every
day. I am now in the best of health
and weigh ten pounds more than
1 did before I took sick. I feel that.
1 owe my life to Dr. Williams' Pink
Dills, and hope my experience will
benefit some other sufferer."

Each one of us hus nt some time
eaten too much, but we have surely
not gone to such an excess as this lish
has. It is called the "black swal lower" and ns a swullower takes lirsjl
place, for ita stomach is much larger
than its body. It will seize by the lull
a lish eight or ten times Its own size
and work its way over it by repeatedly
sliding forward one jaw and then the
other. Before taking a meal the swal-
lower Is a very respectable looking
fish, except for a voracious east of conn*
temince, but afterward he certainly
has the appearance of having eaten
too much. Then thu walls of his stomach ure so stretched as to lie transparent, Later dlgs'stion begins and the
swallower ls turned belly upward by

The Siiiiniliiiila.il  In  Practice.
The theory of the constitution Is that
tbe three departments of the government-the legislative, the executive and
the Judiciary-are Independent of one
another. In practice the government
is not curried on in hnrmony with lliis
theory. The system of checks und balances does not operate ns its Inventors
Intended. The president was to have
hud the power of selecting his subordinates; the senate, through the exerciso
of the power of confirmation, wus to
prevent the appointment of unworthy
men, especially of men who might connive Willi the president to usurp power. In practice most of the president's
subordinates ure forced upon him. lie
usually selects after consultation wltb
a senator, who stands for the whole
senate, for lis' bus its power behind
him through a custom which bus grown

"The end justifies the means," cried
tbe Jesuits of old, aQd the Grit government of Ontario have adopted the
' same tactics. A. while back they were
hard pressed to figure out a working
majority in the legislature, then re
course was had to the never-failing
influence of money. They succeeded
in buying the support of sGamey, the
independent Tory of Manitoulin, for
.$4000.   He made sure of the greater
' part of the money and then split on
the gang, and has raised all kinds of
a sensation in that supposedly moral
province. Sutherland, another member, says the Liberal machine attempted to seduce him from the paths of
' rectitude, but he stood proof against
them, probably, because the price was
not big enough. The longer those
Grits are in power, the more reckless
they become in their schemes. The
people of Ontario must hare either
st roug stomachs, or morals of the most
corrupt d<8scription.
Ex-Premier    Dunsmuir,  the   one
bloated capitalist of the province, is
acting like a spoilt baby with his coal
'miners.   Recently they voted to join
forces with the Western Federation of
Miners, just as their Nanaimo brethren have done, but the action displeased  their employer, and  he has announced that on April 1  he will close
tho Extension collieries down  tight,
throwing 1000 men out of employment
and bringing rui..  to the rising town
of Ladysmith.   There has Ix-cn   no
dispute between  employer   and em
ployees, tho situation lieing   simply
that Dunsmuir imagines he owns his
men, body and soul, and has, therefore,   the  direction   of   their    wills.
Dunsmuir objects not to the men having a union of their own—one that he
can dominate—but he is opposed to
them affiliating with an international
liody.   What rot.   Are not all frater
nal societies international affairs, and
are men condemned for joining them ?
'Then, why prohibit labor unions? The
gauntlet is down, and not for a moment is it to be imagined the hardy
coal miners of Vaucouver Island, now
that they are face to face with the issue, will foreswear their liberties for
the  sake of  the few paltry dollars
wrung from the unwilling hands of
the Chinese-loving James Dunsmuir.
Whore aro now tho brave James' protestations of love for his  white employees that were heralded over the

filled with applications for coal and

John Houston was a visitor in the
city Monday, en route to New Denver
on a business trip. It is ten years
since John last visited this section and
he observed the camp had lx-en saved
much trouble. Ten years ago Silver-

Then John had to shank it up the
valley now the C.P.K. placed their
incompamble service at Iii* disposal.
Then John's latent capabilities as a
politician were not suspected, now ho
