at their command to further the ide .
Thc secretary then made a verbal
report as to what had been done of
late in the matter, showing that
progress was beinc made.
President Shatford strongly supported the ideas advanced and urged
that no time be lost In placing Slocan 8 advantages asasinclter site before capitalists, ln order to support
the representations, it would be well
to have the offer of a free si.e made
by tho townsite company committed
to writing; also a reliable report on
the quality and extent! f the lime do
posits near the city. These obtained
and the. board would hare something
to work uiKin.

Aud Consider Plan* for Eroctiess of Lead
The following circular letter has
been issued to the silver-lead mine
owners of thc country, under date of
Nov. 14th:
"As you are aware, the Dominion
government last spring granted a
bounty for the production of pig lead.,
smelted and-refined in Canada, It
was expected that this would have
resulted in the establishment ofa refinery and consequently in better
prices to tlie silver-load mine owners
by reason of lower treatment charge
and an assured market for their product.
Unfortunately such results have
not been attained.although strenuous
efforts have been made. It is deemed advisable, therefore,tocall a meeting of representatives of all silver-
lead mines in British Columbia for
the purpose of fully considering the
whole question nnd taking such action as will further and protect thc
interests of all concerned.
A definite plan of action will be
laid before such meeting.
You are requested to attend a meeting of representatives of silver-lead
mines in British Columbia, to bo held
at tho office of tho L<ondon <& B. C.
Goldflelds in Nelson, B.C.. on Wednesday, the 4th day of December,
J901, at 2 o'clock, p.m. Signed, J.

For the first time this year the Arlington finds no place in the shipping

output will be large. The Enterprise

that property have been greatly Increased, the management claiming

SIM surprises iiis NEioiinons.
Sim Banks did not go home at once,
but passed on down the street In the direction of Hicks' store. It had been
his custom to go there every night to
Join the little group of men who always congregated around tbe store
stove in the winter and on tbe platform
In front of thc door In tbe summer to
loaf away their Idle hours.
He had long been one of the leading
sjilrits In these meetings, and heretofore be had come to them boldly, and
In tbe talks that followed his voice had
been heard taking nn important part.
But tonight he approached wltb baiting step und shamed face and sat down
quietly on the edge of tbe platform on
the very outskirts of the group. He
hoped no one would notice his presence, and he was careful to do notblng
to attract attention to It
Pap Sampson w.is tbere and Jason
Roberts nnd .Ilni Thorn and a number
of others, and most prominent among
them all and most In evidence in the
conversation was Kbcnezer Sparks.
Very naturally, the subject under discussion wns the war and the battle
that had that dny been fought In their
bearing. Ebenezer, with wonderful effrontery, seized the tlrst opportunity to
begin a rehash of the oft told stories of
brave deeds performed by hlin in the
Mexican war and to reannounce bis
consuming desire to again tnke up a
soldier's life and join In the fight and
experience the dangers and hardships
of war as be bad done in days gone by.
Sim listened to Kbcnezer In astonishment It was a mystery to him bow a
man could have tbe assurance to boast
of his bravery when only a few hours
ago be bad shown the very men to
whom be was talking tbat he was an
arrant coward. Sim knew that be had
acted tbe part of a coward, and be
knew that every man tbere know It
and be waa resolved that if no one
mentioned tbat event until be did It
would never be mentioned.
Ebenezer talked on for some time before Pap Sampson brought bis cane
down wltb a tbump and said:
"Thar, Ebenezer Sparks, that'll do.
We all know rjw brave you are, so
tbar ain't a grain of use In the world
for you to waste your breath a-teliln us
about It Lord, you made tbat all
plumb plain to us today, you an Sim
Banks both."
"Sim don't seem to be doln much
talkln 'bout tbe way be done," Jason
observed, with a laugh. "Guess be believes In lettln bis actions apeak for
"Lord, Jason, I reckon tbe way Sim's
woman done- kind of took tbe tucks
Be hoped no one would notice his ores
oaten blm," Pap said.   Then, turning
to Sim, be added. "Sbe kind of bit you
pooty bard, didn't sbe, Sim7"
"No barder'n I deserved, I guess,"
Sim replied dryly. "I did act tbe miserable coward, an It ain't no wonder
she was ashamed of me."
"Say, by granny, but that's one wny
to talk, ain't It?" Jason said after s
snort silence. "You ain't a bit like Et>
eneser, Sim. He done more cowardly
tban yon, but you won't ketch bin
nwnln of It uais a time."
"1 can't help nothln 'bout whnt Ebenezer does," Sim replied. "It don't
do no good to deny the truth wben ev-
er'body knows what I done."
"You're right thar, Sim," Pap Sam|>-
son said heartily. "Addis vinegar to a
sound piidilin ain't goln to make it no
sweeter, an nddlu a lie to another fault
ain't gain to make Ihe other fault no
less. Them Is gospel truths If thar
ever was one outbide of thc Holy Writ,
an It'd be s good thing for you, I'hcne-
z.er Sparks, to tnke 'em Into your craw
an digest 'em along at odd spells."
"Pap Sampson," Kbenezer exclaimed, bristling i<p, "do you 'low to Insinuate thnt I been n-lylnV"
"Lord, no, Ebenezer! I ain't no hand
to Insinuate, but when a coward makes
out like he's brave If he ain't lyln he's
glttln right ship next door to It"
"You better be keerful, Pap," Tlm
Thorn sold, "or first thing you li tow
you'll have Ebeiiezer's old woman
down on you. Can't nobody make her
think he ain't brave, you bet!"
"She ain't much like Sim's wife, Is
she?" Jason asked. Then he added:
"By Jinks, I think Sim's wife cut up too
rough with him. I tell you right now
I'd like to see my woman try any slch
capers as them on me, especially right
afore folks. Lord, I'd leave 'cr so quick
that It'd make her bead swim."
"You ull heiiin what Mary Mann said,
I guess," Jim Thorn remarked. "I been
Ihinkln 'bout that, an 1 dou't know If
the word sho spoke wa'n't a true word.
Sim's woman did 'pear to be a right
smart struck Wltb tbe looks of thut
stranger, nil"—
"Jim Thorn, you are a liar!"

As in Hawaii, the Arst civilized
women who visited New Zealand
were the wives of missionaries sent
out from New South Wales, and sub-
w-quently from England. . These
pioneer women endured hardships
from which those who spout their
lives in Hawaii were spared. The
Maoris, or aborigines, among whom
they lived, were a warlike people,
and from 181*1 until their final submission hostilities were always imminent, massacres (securing in which
neither age nor sex was spared.
As it was u long voyage from
England, only the most enterprising
women hud the courage tss emigrate,
and this, undoubtedly, had its effect
upon the present llritish population,
who, men and women both are the
very flower of the llritish colonists.
Tliey are surprisingly tall, athletic,
with fresh, rosy complexions, and
notwithstanding the enormous quantities of tea they consume, strong
as lye, in huge cups, morning, noon
and night.
Uecause of their fewness, the women of New Zealand were treated
with distinguished favor, and their
children und grandchildren have
reaped the benefits*. The universities have been co-educational for
many yeurs, awarding women decrees with a justice that Oxford and
Cambridge might well emulate. Thero

In 181)8, after severul years of
persevering work, the bill legalizing
universal suffrage wus passed. A
franchise league, of whieh Mrs. Dal-
dy of Auckland was president and
Mrs. Kitson secretary, was the medium through which the preliminary
work was carried on.
One of the leaders of the suflrago
movement wus Lady Annie Stout,
the wife of the chief justice. On the
day of tho first election Lady Stout
officiated as an election judge, sitting all day in the polling booths in
one of the worst districts of Dune-
din, where she then resided. It is
a remarkable fact that of the total
number of women enrolled at the
first election after they were enfranchised over 91 per cent, voted.
After the suffrage bill was passed
tho franchise league disbanded, but
reorganized immediately under the
title of the Woman's Political Education League. Systematic study of
political questions was taken up,
and the result hus been one of the
most intelligent voting classes in the
world. As to tho result, its entire
success may be inferred from the
fact that a few years ago one solitary member rose in Parliament to
move the abrogation of the law; he
could not get u seconder, uud sat
down umid roars of laughter; it wus

The. women of Australia aro somewhat more conventional than those
of New Zealand; and, to the ciisttiM
observer, the intellectual average
does not appear to bo so high- The
first comers, however, who did not
reside in the towns, roughed it in
the bush with fathers, husbands nnd
brothers, sharing their privutiona
and ever-present danger of attacks
from the savage black follows, ond
tho still more savage bushrangers,
or outluws, who were generally es-
caped convicts from the penal colonies.
As tho country becume moro thickly settled and comforts and even
luxuries were possible, life upon tho.
sheep und cattle ranges improved.
The most open-handed hospitality
prevailed, und still prevails; large
houses parties were entertained, especially at Christmas and Easter,
which were observed ns generally us

colonists always writo with a capital letter. Native servants were not

An amusing story, which may perhaps he entirely true, la told of a shortsighted but energetic member of tbe
Russian secret police.
He was walking through a little frequented street of St. Petersburg one
night when tie spied high up on a lamppost a placard.
"Aha!" be said to himself, scenting
mischief on the Instant and alert for
action. "That's one of those Incendiary
notices about his majesty the czar! lt
must conic down at once!"
With some difficulty, being of a stout
build, he succeeded In climbing tbe post
and dislodging the placard. Ho bore It
to the ground, and there, peering at It
by the light of the lamp, he read two
Russian words, the English equivalent

A Wile's Allowance.
It Is one of the most bumHIatlngele
ments In woman's life In America today and one of the phases which Is
most uncompllmentarlly reflective upon
American husbands that a just allowance is withheld from many wives.
No matter how small the allowance
may be, so long as it Is fair In proportion to the Income earned, every wife
should have a purse of ber own, sacred
to herself and ber needs and free from
tbe slightest intrusion on the part of
her husband. Every wife Is entitled to
this, nnd no young man—I care not
bow small his income nor what his
reasoning mny be—starts married life
aright who withholds that courtesy and
that right from his wife.—Edward Bok

Some yeais ago an eminent physician diagnosed his disease as "Stone
in the Kidney," but even after the
diagnosis the physicians were unable
to elTsct a permanent cure. Today
ho is a well man. He has found a
remedy thut has banished the disease
—a remedy that has cured where
medical aid was ineffectual.. The
remedy is '.-odd's Kidney Pills, and
Mr. Cassidy feels so elated over his
release from the excruciating suffering that he has given the following

a well-known Ottawa newspape*
Ottawa, Aug. 8, 1901.
Iieur Sir —I want you to publish
for tho benefit of others who are sul
feruur, us I have suffered for years
about how I was cured of Stone in
the I'ldnstys. My friends all know
that I have bs*en a martyr to this
disease lor -.-cars. They know that
besides consulting the best physicians in the city and trying every
kind of remedy I could think of, I
was Unable to get better. Some time
ago a frien.! of mine told me that
Ilpdd'S Kidney Pills would cure mc.
As a last resort I tried them and
thev have cured ine. This is the first
year in a great many that I have not

is afflicted with Stone in the Kidney
and I feel the greats-st gratitude to
Dodd's 'Kidney IMlls, for they have
cured me. Anyone who has suffered
need suftVr no more.

The Tribune won a striking victory on Tuesday, when the Nelson

principle involved of municipal ownership. John Houston is still a power

'•is the united action of all the silver-
lead mine owners, who will meet at
Nelson on December 4 to discuss the
.-situation. Added to the action ofthe
mine owners is thc  supjioit being
accorded the schemo   by both   the
Canadian Pacific and the Gnat Northern railways-the former in particular, tho moro so in order to hend

It is the belief of the mine owners j
that the silver-lead industry of B.C. |
