J. M. McGregor, a former resident
of Slocan, sende Ths Dbill the following interesting letter from Kyoto,
Japan, under date of June 9:
Hero's hoping you are all enjoying
the fruits of patient endeavor, leading
captive the festive capitalist from far
countries, and revelling in the prosperity which methought I saw peering
ever the horizon when I tore myself
away from the many attractions of our
happy valley and turned westward to
look for the wise men (or others) of
tho east. I have heard nothing of B.
C. t.iiis?<* I left its shores, with the exception of the alarming dispatch that
its premier had lieen—was it banished
or merely—dismissed, from which
meagre information I infer that the
province still exists, though I greatly
fear its pmtoffices are all clost-d—only
temporarily, I hope.
V\ ell, I have not lived in Slocan for
nothing, and my bump of intelligence
is abnormally developed, hence I wait,
without despair. That same bump is
of vast service in Japan, too, I can
assure you. We Japanese are a leisurely people, and if we don't get
what we want today there are other
days coming. As a matter of fact,
little as I thought it at the time, the
past few years have been aa excellent
preparatory school for Japan. I would
eanis?stly recommend anyone who is
thinking of coming to this country to
take a preliminary course of surveying
(or prospecting) among the mountains
of B.C. After learning to sleep wrapped in a blanket oa the top of mother
earth, the thickly quilted "futori"
spread ob a matted floor is pure luxury; the dim light strained through
paper windows, however numerous,
recalls the twilight of a canvas interior
when the eves acquired the art of seeing under difficulties oa many a rainy
day spent In reading, writing, drawing or figuring; the invariable stilted
politeness of the camp, too, excellently
equips oue for communiou with this
so painfully polite nation. The merry
hum and the playful bite of the mos-
quito ara as a message from home.
But above all, a continuous diet of fat
bacon, rare beaus, pasty porridge, aud
bannocks of all degrees of excellence,
subdues a naturally exacting organ to
such a state of docility that it will tic
ccpt.iawfir.il without a qualm,consider
cold, hard-boiled peas a positive treat,

I am, as you seo, quartered in Kyoto, which, as you will remember, is a
city of nearly 400,000 inhabitants,only
about 30 miles from the sea, but Japanese of the Japanese; capital of the
empire for over 1000 years, and only
opened to foreigners without passport
some four or five years ago. It
breathes a flavor of pure Japan from
end to end, in spite of electric tramways aud occasional telephones and
electric lights. The foreign population numbers perhaps two score, of
whom all but half a dozen are missionaries and school teachers, yet one
finds English spoken in many of tke
leading shops, aad in the foreign hotels -foreign in style and equipment,
but not in ownership or management.
The city is beautifully situated in a
basin, virtually levol,almost suriound-
ed by hills of a respectable height,
with a river as large as the Slocau
running through it, besides various
streams which seem to be canals.
Judging from my present short experience of tho country, I sheuld say
that the Japanese are passionately
fond of canals. Fond of water in every
way, for that matter, I believe they
even driuk it. Of course their cleanliness is proverbial; aud they take
their bath (I use tho singular advisedly, by the way, because we avo very
saving in fuel in this country, and one
tub full serves the family. Indeed,
the tub is quite commonly mado, with
a charcoal lireliox at one end. and the
water is heated in place, taking two
or three hours, hence time also forbids
a separate bath for each. I am lucky
in beiug the head of my household,
therefore entitled to first use of the
water) decidedly warm. In fact, they
seem to be able to stand greater heat
without than within, and, having acquired the faculty of stowing myself
in 110 degrees, I should certainly take
a chill if I should fall into a cup of
I don't know whether tho Japanese
go in for swimming or not, but I saw
them rowing, while at Yokohama. The
various rowing clubs there hail a regatta, W-Uislsting chiefly of eight-oar
crews and fireworks. The latter were
interesting; the former would be improved by some attempt on the part
of the eight in the same boat to move
their oars at approximately the same
time—and, of course, in the same
direction. One would expect it to
embarrass the coxswain somewhat
when a couple of the men on one side
get tangled up and lose six or eight
strokes, but perhaps not. I am not
much of an oarsman myself. I notice
they take crabs, too; but why stop to
gratify the appetite when a rival is
forging to the front? Ah, well, the
Oriental mind moves in circles not to
be followed by the western, but to be
oontempluted with awe and admiration.
The Japanese are clearly antinom-
ian in their creeds, which are numerous, their faith being evidenced by the
temples and shrines innumerable,
across which one stumbles ut every
turn, while their customary attitude
(in the picture books) is on the knees;
but aa for works—it is excellent soil
for thistles, they are much more apparent than the figs, which doubtless
exist) somewhere. Their politeness is
above praise, so far beyond, indeed,
that it is frequently an unadulterated
bore, but on the whole it is entirely
admirable. Elaborately ceremonial i.s
it is, it is not wholly superficial. That
ia to say, it is the outcome of resriect-
ful or friendly feelings which normally exist, even though one does not
neglect the bows and the honorific O's
and Go's merely because one is speaking te a rascal. To the westerner, it
is, of course, odd, and at times annoying, to observe the changed relations
of the sexes. It is not that the Japanese man fails in his respectful
politeness when addressing a woman,
though I fancy he is somewhat less
punctilious in her case. Nor is she
kept confined and concealed in her
own home, nor made a drudge that
her men folk may enjoy leisure; on
the contrary, girls and women go
shopping, visiting aad gallivanting
no whit less here than at home, and
the men are -the wage-earners. It is
true that on the farm and in the shop
and restaurant the women folk work
with their husbands and brothers, or
work alone when there are uo men;
but we know all these conditions at
It is in the complete absence of any
spocial deference to women that one
feels the vast •differcne** from oux attitude at home; and in the further fact
that this greater deference is paid by
the fair sex to their lords and masters
instead. Thus, I judge it would be
the height of rudeness for a lady to
receive a guest of the male persuasion
standing. Her husband moroly bends
double two or three times, the guest
doing the same, but tho mistress is on
her knees, with ber head to the floor.
It is quite customary for all hands to
assume this humble.but not ungraceful
posture when farewells are being said,
everyone being already ou the floor,
of course. Dear, dear, but it is agonizing to sit out a two hours' interview
a la Japanaise! I don't mean to pretend that I can maintain their ordinary posture for two hours, or for ten
minutes. I relieve my still joints as
often as I dare, sitting tailor fashion,
or with my feet just to one side, then
to the other—I didu't think it would
look polite to stretch them in front of
me, and that is probably why my
schooling in the hills has not better
fitted me for the enjoyment of this
form of discomfort. Besides, there's
always something in front of you. It
may be only a thimble I mean a tea
cup—and a tray containing a firebowl
and ash l-eooiver; or your host may
have the floor strewn with glasses anil
trays and dishes containing eatables
and comestibles; or you muy lie at a
teahouse with a table in front of you,
but that's no better. The table is only
four inches high all told, so there's no
room to stretch oneself comfortably
underneath, and if there should happen to be (please mark I stud if) a
pretty geisha sitting (close) at one
side, then one would lie limited to an
excrutiatingly small variety of positions, and would (I imagine) feel the
need of a derrick to help him regain
an erect attitude, and to hold him
there till he got the kink out of his

You may assure inquiring friends of
this.that I don't think Japan is a good

Slocan, collectivoiy and individually.
A* Appreciative Raasfor.
James C. Shook, writing from Peterborough, Ont., says: "Weappreciate
Tm. Drill vs*rv much and it comes as
u weakly reminder of a place where
wG spent four yeara of pleasant Ume,
and some day may nro us returning
there. Slocau is a district which, to
my mind, has uot been fairly placed
before the investing public on its real
merits, owing to the pernicious system
of 'knocking,' so prevalent there
among a certain class, but we hope it
will outlive them. Times are exceedingly good here and have been for the
past two years."
Short Session Maalsl Last Monday Mlght-
Lota of Bills.
A very short session of the city
council was held on Mouday night,
but little business being in evidence.
All tho members were present.
Communications read: From Goo.
Nichol, applying for the position of
city clerk. Laid-over till tho next
From Mayor York, through the city
clerk, requesting further leave of absence.   Nothing done.
Bills presented: McCallum st Co.,
supplies,f<"33.2(.; Pioneer Livery Stable
teaming, $43.20; T. Woodcock & Co.,
rope, $2.85; timechecks ,14 and Iti.
$18. Bills referred to finance committee and timechecks ordered paid.
Finance committee reported in favor
of bills amounting to $139.17. Ordered paid.
Aid. McNeish called attention to
state of alley in the rear of the school
and asked to have it cleared. Referred to board of works.
Aid. Arnot drew attention to the
dangerous condition of the wharf, the
planking having been lifted iu many
places because of high water. Left to
clerk to attend to.
Clerk reported receipt of quarterly
grant to school from the government,
amounting to $,%2.20. Also that the
hotel licenses were lieing paid in.
Council adjourned.
The city had a most narrow escape
on Tuesday morning from being destroyed by fire. Just as the str. Slocau was pulling out from the wharf at
7 o'clock, the crew noticed smoke and
flames issuing from the attic of the
Arlington Hotel, above the kitchen.
A general alarm was sounded and the
fire brigade were quickly on the spot,
while Capt. McLennan ran the Ixiat
close up to the hotel and strung their
big hose from the vessel's pumps right
into the building. By this time the
flames were coming out all the windows and through the roof, but the
deluge of water poured in quickly
quenched the fire. The interior of the
attic was badly scorched and some
places charred." The contents ofthe
building were being rushed out in a
hurry by scores of willing workers,
while the guests wore looking after
themselves, some iu a decided hurry.
Larry Knowles had to get out through
a window, the upper stairway having
been cut off by the flames.
Tho origin of the fire is somewhat
of a mystery, though it is lieliev-jd to
tie attributable to the kitchen flue.
The loss to the owners, Messrs. Henderson and Gething, by fire and the
water, will amount to $1000, which is
covered by insurance. Messrs.Knowles
<& Patrequin, tbe lessros, also lost
considerable, but they had no insurance. Fortunate indeed was it that
the Slocan was nigh at baud, otherwise the building must have surely
gone. There was little or no wind at
the time, but nothing could have
saved the town if the hotel had gone.
The members of the fire brigade worked well and with judgment and deserve a large measure of thanks.

be did not wait for me to return. He
broke the desk .ud got the book. But,
unluckily for him. I had already re-
maved the page on which the memo-

"Blackmail?" siuerled Elmendorf.
"Something of tbe sort." wns tbo reply.
"If 1 enn be of nny assistance, let me
know," said tho detective, "And now
I want to tnlk nbout tho ense of Elsie
Miller. There's a little medical point"—
"Why don't you ask Kendall?"
"llr. Kendall Is not talkative," said
Elmendorf, "and"—
"Neither am I," responded Blalr.
"However, let's bear your question."
"You remember," snld Elmendorf,
Resting himself and looking across the
table In tbe center of tho room, bis
an is resting upon It "that Miss Miller

call It, Just below tbe collar boue on

" I'he mark of what we call a 'greru'

"Quite the contrary," replied Blair.
"It looked like a large dimple."
"An ordinary man wouldn't have
known what It was, eb?"
"Probably not."
"Tin* knife couldu't have struck there
by accident," said Elmendorf. "It
looks to mo like one of those freaks of
a murderer who baa brooded over the
crime lu advance."
"Curious point," said Blalr.
"!'o lt seemed to me," said Elmendorf, "nnd here's nnother. Of course
the man who stabbed ber meant to kill
"A thief would have struck her on
the bead."
"1 should tblnk likely."
"!'o" tbls was n murder ease," sahl
Elmendorf. "Tbere wns the Intention
to kill. Now, why didu't the murderer
strike again?"
"lie probably   thought   the wound ]
was fatal," responded Blalr. '
"That's the queer part of It." said |
the    detective.     "I     wouldn't     have j
thought It was fatal.   Most murderers
go  ou  stabbing:   tbey  strike   half  a !
dozen times In n sort of frenzy.   This
man was conteut wltb oue blow, but
It  wns a good one, nud If tbe knife i
blade hadn't been bent"—
"Wns It bent?" Inquired Blalr. j
"Yes," was the reply. "And If the
assassin was ouo who knew tbe loca- !
tion of tbe vital organs, but wns at j
the time too .much excited to notice I
the defect In the Instrument, why, |
theu, that beud lu the blade may have
saved ber life." |
"If It Is saved," ndded Blnlr.
"It was certainly saved for a time,"
said the detective, "though every doctor wbo saw the wound Immediately
pronounced lt Intnl. That's a point In
the case."
"From which you conclude— wbnt?"
snld Blair, rising and taking a sent at
tbe tuble opposite Elmendorf.
The detective did not Immediately
answer the question. He seemed to be
deep In thought
"By the way," he said sudilenly,
"there's another point while 1 remember It.   I menu tbnt letter."
"Wbat letter?" j
"The one Alden wrote and E'V never got," replied Elmendorf.   "The post- !
man   renlly   delivered   It,   of   course, |
though he won't testify positively.    It
Was undoubtedly put bv tho servuut
UUder the door of the vestibule, that little ball leading to Miss Miller's room.
It was put under that door, but UOI far
"Not far enough?"
"No. Somebody csme slong nud
pulli'd It out. If It happened to be s
man who was ln love witli Miss Miller,
the reading of It couldu't have beeu
pleasant But how did the mun get
"I don't know," ssid Blalr.
"As to the motive," continued tbe detective, "thnt's pretty clear now. M Iss
Miller bns told about her mnrrlnge.
Sbe'bnsn't uatued tbe man, but you
know blm."
"Yes." said Blalr; "I know him."
He took up a very little bottle from
the table and began to turn It Idly la
his hands.
"Now, then," said Elmendorf, "let's
re?apltulato. The murderer was a mas
who.knew of thnt scar."
"Anybody might have seen that," re-
Joined Blalr.
"He knew what It was," continued
Elmendorf. "He also was a man who
at tbe first glance believed that wound
which be hnd inflicted to be fatal. We
conclude that be was a doctor."
"Very pretty," said Blalr.
"The individual subsequently tried to
poison Miss Miller," said tbe detective,
"and bis way of doing lt also bears
out the theory that he was one who
hnd a knowledge of medlciue. He
knew Just what poison to employ, and
be guessed that there would be some
sort of food substance In tbe room Into
which the polsou could be put Now,
besides being a doctor, what was be?"
"A scoundrel, I should say," replied
"He was a man who could go In and
out of Mrs. Simmons' bouse wben be
pleased," said Elmendorf. "He was
not one wbo depended upon any Imperfect catch of a door. Perhaps he
had lived In tbe bouse and bad never
given up his key. Anyhow It Is certain
that he went to see Miss Miller st 0
o'clock In the morning, an hour when
most men would not think tbey bsd a
right to call, but one wbo claimed to be
her husband might He saw that letter
sticking out frem under tbe doer. He
stole It, and be said after reading It, 'If
not mine, tken no man's.' He wss s
murderer ln his heart, tben."
"You mean to Imply," said Blalr,
"that he bad been accustomed to go ln
and out of tbat bouse without ringing
the bell; tbat be was her husband,
though she would not see hlm except
when be presented himself at her door
to plead and to be sent away, with bis
heart on fire. Well, I tblnk tbat may
be true."
"Undoubtedly," said Elmendorf. "but
who was the man ?"
Tbere waa a rap at the door, and
Blalr snld "Excuse me" quite conventionally as be crossed tbe room te open
it He exchanged some words wltb a
servant and for a few seconds stood
outside, but his left hand was always
visible upon the door, aa Elmenderf
carefully noted. When be returned to
bla seat, he aet down tbe very small
bottle upon the table.
"I had reasoned ao far early In the
case," continued Elmendorf, "and had
even made an experiment with a person whom I bad suspected. 1 cut my
hand and let him bandage It though
that proved not to be necessary, for the
man acquitted himself ioatantly by
saying that I had cut 'an artery' wheat
tbere was plainly no arterial bleeding,
to say nothing of tbe location of the in-
Jnry.   Po he surely wasn't a doctor."
"You seem to be quite an educates*

"Very little, I'm afraid," said Elmen-
dorf; "but let ua proceed. I bad proved

In our daily food, us In our Unity life, a
little of lt is neces.sury. nnil the absence
of it takes away from the flavor of ev-
erythlng we eat. The "suit of life"
Which we hear nbout signifies the
health, vi(,'or and wit which We find In
life. There wns a time In cottutries far
from the sea when primitive man never used salt in bis fr.od, and it was
only when nations advanced in civilization thnt salt became an absolute necessity.
I'.ut it was not alone as foo'l thnt salt
was valued. Among tbe ancients a salt
spring was regarded ns a pift of the
gods, and it wus believed that uny salt
found in the soil lent it a peculiar sanctity and made It a place where prayers
were must readily heard. Every meal
thai Included salt had a certain sacred
character, creating o bond of piety and
friendship between host and guest;
hence the expression, "Tlierc Is salt
between us," meaning friendship, nnd
to be "untrue to salt" means to bu dis
loyal or ungrateful.
In the middle ages, when all classes
and degrees snt at the same board,
tbey were placed according to rank,
above or below the great saltcellar,
which always stood in the middle and
marked the dividing social line. "Above
tbe salt" meant "of high degree." Below the salt were tbe yeomanry, serfs
and vassals of the feudal days. A good
description of this custom may bo
found in "Ivanhoe" where Cedrlc, tho
Saxon, entertains his vassals and
A plncb of salt is always considered
lucky in cooking. To take anything
"with a pinch of salt" means to excuse
or make allowances for lt. A "salt" is
a sailor. To salt one's conversation
means to make It sparkle. Salt Is always employed in n sense of benefit or
Tbo Hible has many references to
salt, nmong them being "Ve nre tlie
salt of tlie earth," Matthew v, 13, and
St. Paul says, "Let your speech be nlways with grace seasoned with salt."
Salt is used by Catholics in baptism.

FRIDAY. JULY 10th. 1903.
Only five weeks mora till the voters'
list closes, ao get your name in at once
if you wish to share in the fua on
election .day.
John Riordan, secretary of the
Miners' Union at Phoeaix, will make
tha run in the Grand Forks riding as
a .Socialist candidate.
Labor candidates are likely to be
put up in the Greenwood, Rossland,
Fernie, Kaslo, Revelstoke, Nanaimo,
and Vancouver ridings.   Grand Forka
,has ono nominated and the feeling is
' growing for one in the Slocan.
vine©, in that they have met tho mau-
ifojd petitions for assistance from ths
country by granting a bonus tothe
miners of lead. It covers a period of
five years, with a yearly payment of
$500,000. The sum of $15 per ton is
to be .given on ore mined up to 33,330
tons, but should there be more than
that mined then the rate per ton will
be reduced proportionately. At the
same time the $15 bounty carries only
if the Loidon price be £1210s or less;
abova that figure the bounty tapers
off. It is interred, also, that the ore
shall be treated in Canada, though
provision is made fer treatment, abroad
should local rates go too high. The
bounty will undoubtedly assist a languishing industry, but Slocan mine
owners feel that the benefit will be
realized In East Kootenay more than
among themselves. Such big produ
cers of lead aa the North Star, Sulli
van, and St. Eugene could supply the
full quota of ore themselves and they
would undoubtedly get favored treatment from the smelters, so shutting
eut the smaller mines. Objection,too,
is taken to the limitation placed ou
the output and London price, the con
tention being made that the bounty
should be unlimited to sbe really effective. To the old free traders of the
Liberal party the bonus is rather distasteful, they looking upon it as a
thinly veiled sop to their anti-protection proclivities. Still,there is latitude
enough for them to slide round the
protection corner—provided no one is
looking.    ________________________________________
Straws show which way the current
is running- Smith Curtis, in a speech
at Rossland last week, when he ren-
' dered an account of his stewardship
in the legislature,warned his audience
to beware of Joe Martin and his manipulations. He also paid his respects
to W.B.B. Mclnnes, and declared the
Liberal party should purify itself by
discarding both men. Dr.Cl«rke,presi-
dent of the West Lillooet Liberal As-
' 'taociation, in a letter to the press, resigns his position aad withdraws from
the party .thereby causing a sensation.
His stated reason is that his party is
not protecting Canadian industries,nor
safeguarding the interests al the
country generally. These two exam-
plea demonstrate the "harmony" prevailing in Liberal- ranks.

Hon. Chas. Wilson and Hon. R. F.
Green have gone to Ottawa, to again
urge upon the Laurier government the
various important claims of this province. Among those claims will be
that further Oriental immigration, including Japanese, be strictlj prohibit-
skl, and that the provincial legislation
sis-eking to restrict tho competition of
the Mongolian races be allowed to
stand; also that the Dominion government do not disallow bill No. 16, cancelling the patents to the famous land
' grants in East Kootenay. With these
vital issues kept prominently to the
front, every person must admit the
Conservative government is living up
to the party creed: seeking to advance
tha best interests of tho people of the
province. In particular is tbis so relative to the valuable petroleum lands
in East Kootenay. Tbe Conservative
party stands as an unit to preserve
the ground for the people, and they
will contest that fact every inch of the
way with the C.P.R. Should the C.
P.R. win out on it, then the Grit
government at Ottawa will lie alone to
Public feeling has compelled the
Laurier government to acknowledge
the principle of government ownership
of railways, in regard to the application of the Grand Trunk Pacific road
for aasistanoe.   After  taking   ample
time to consider the project, the government announce their determination
to  extend  the    Intercolonial    from
Moncktoa to Winnipeg, with running
powers thereon to aay road asking the
privilege.   It will be leased, howovor,
for 50 years to the Grand Trunk, they
to pay the government for the concession.   From Winnipeg to the coast
the   government   will guarantee the
three per cent bonds of the company
'to 75 per cent of tho total cost, $13,-
000 a mile being the   limit   on  the
prairio and $30,000 per mile in the
mountains.     Freight   rates   will   be
subject  to  government supervision,
with also the right to purchase. Canadian  national   spirit  is developing
'along right lines, and it is satisfactory
to know that the government shows
its willingness to hearken to the voice
of the people rather than to that of the
'capitalistic humbug.

A shoe which looms large in the public
eye must combine in it positive elements of
price value, of durability, comfortandbeauty.
The " Slater Shoe" because it makes
strenuous claims on public attention must
not only feel easy when worn, it must not
only wear well, but it mtest look well,—all
advertised claims are unconsciously and
critically weighed by the first impression
conveyed to the mind through the eye in
its initial inspection of the shoe.
So the "Slater Shoe" with its high
prestige obtained by years of advertising
must not only fulfil the wearer's expectations
of fit, shape retention and wear, but its
beauty must meet with the instantaneous
approval of the wearer's eye in its most
critical moment, viz: thc first glance, and
the succeeding closer scrutiny.
And the makers of the " Slater Shoe "
realizing this fact have made "Slater Shoes"
not only foot houses of ease internally, but
foot palaces of beauty -artetnaliy.
