decided to purchase the required
lumber from McCallum & Co. Committee will report further at the completion of the work." Report accepted and ordered fyled.
On the matter of the Brandon wa
terworks extension,a letter was read
from the interested parties seeking
the water. The finance committee
attached a report, recommending the
{"ranting of the privilege asked for,
of opening Ward street to Slocan
street, for the extension of the water
main.
The mayor urged that proper
writings be drawn up between the
city and the parties seeking the water, so that the corporation would not
be a loser when a proper and cfti
cient system was put in by the city.
Aid."Worden explained Aid, Brad-
shaw's position in the matter, -the
latter understanding the mayor to
have stated that thc original owners
of the system should relinquish their
privileges and pipes when the city
installed waterworks.
The mayor, however,said that was
not his thought at all, ns the citv
could have ho claim upon anything
done before the place was incorporated.
It was finally left to the clerk ts>
have an agreement drawn up between the city and the parties interested, the latter to relinquish their
rights to the city when a civic system
was installed.
Aid. Smith and Worden then moved that the privilege asked for of
opening the streets be granted, upon
the interested parties signing the
agreement referred to.   Carried.

T. D. Woodcock si Co.'s bill for
pails for the fire hall again came up.
The mayor explained that the firm
would take back the pails complained of and would replace them with
proper utensils. Bill also referred to
the finance committee.
The mayor threw out the suggestion of having some sort of fire }>ro-
tection for the city, in addition to a
pail brigade. He would leave it to
the council to think about, urging
them to devise some scheme suitable
to the needs of the city and as economical as possible. The matter
should be attended to without delay.
Aid. Worden came hack to his old
theme of the cemcterv, hut the mayor
said Prank Pletcher had hot yet put
in an appearance from Nelson, and
nothing could be done about the site
till he came.

Socialist I.s-mriis* Meeting.
Tuesday evening's meeting of thc
Socialist League was more interesting
than usual, though the attendance
was not quite as large. Arrangements have been made with the labor
unions of the riding to have representation at a convention to be called
for the selection of a provincial candidate. A letter from headquarters
was read, inviting tho league to a flit-
lata with the provincial Socialist
party. J. M. Cameron, the provincial organizer, will bo here in a few
days to give a lecture. A member of
the league is to also protest against
the exemption of local church lands
from taxation, as being contrary to
the statutes; and tlm secretary WM

to the surrounding mines, fallowing
this e.iiiie a half hour address by J.

court at Vancouver had granted him
permission to make a thorough examination ofthe Arlington workings
believed to be passing through the
ground of tho Native Silver fraction.
The latter is owned equally between
himself and the Arlington company,
and it has been tho subject of much
litigation between them, Manley so
far being the winner. The ground
in question lies between the Arling
ton and Burlington claims of the Arlington group.
TRAN-SFKR GKOUP BONDED.
Sid Nornin.ii Will Develops, the Property
This Winter.
Sid Norman, of Spokane, has bonded the Transfer group.situated on the
divide to the south of the Arlington,
When he left here a month ago he
took an option on tho property and
has kept one man at work since.
Word came on Tuesdav that he in
tended to take up his'option and proceed with the development of the property. On Wednesday five men went
up, in charge of W. Innes, to build
2J miles of trail connecting the group
with the Arlington road, via Tobin
creek. D. S. McVannel has the contract to erect » bunkhouse large
enough to accommodate a force of
eight or ten men, who will be employed all winter. The building is
to be framed here and then hauled
to the mine.
The amount of the bond is $40,000,
running one year, so much work being done each month during the life
of the bond. The first payment is to
be made in six months, so that the
terms obtained are most liberal and
encouraging, Those signing the
bond on thc group were James Parrel 1 and Charley Barber as owners.
Comprised in tho Transfer group
are four claims, with two strong
loads exposed on them. Last summer a strike was made on one of
these, which resembles the Arlington
vein and 13 believed to be one nnd
the same. The strike was made in a
drift cutting into the vein and 50 feet
from the surfaco At that point the
lead is 30 feet in width, with an ore
streak of 10 feet. It is a concentrat
ing proposition on the surface, but
promises) better results with depth.
Farther np the hill a shaft was sunk
on the vein for 10 feet, the foot of it
being in iron pyrites and galena for
its full width. Indications of copper
are present in both openings.
The other lead on the group is 12
feet in width and has been opened up
in a thorough manner by a series of
open cuts and shafts. The main
workings is a 50 foot shaft, sunk on
the Kings'on claim, exposing a pay-
streak'of dry oro four feet wide. In
each of the other openings ore is
sliowing.
Mr, Norman has made a good investment in taking the Transfer, as
it has always occupied a foremost position in the camp. It has the earmarks of a mine and its successful
operation will be of much benefit to
Slocan.
A Promising ('roup.
Frank Provost contemplates work
ing the North Star group this winter.
There are seven claims comprised in
the group, situated to tlie cast of
Dayton creek, and owned by hlhlielf
and W. P. DuBois. Thc. Arlington
people own somo adjoining ground
and last summer uncovered by sluicing a big strong l.*ad, believed to be
the Ottawa vein. The lead runs
through part of the ground of the
North Star group, and wherever
Opened it contains ore. The owners
believe the property to be a big
thing. Apart from the mineral, the
ground holds the best, available timber on Springer creek, there being
something like 1,500,000 feet Ht for
practical use.
Public improvements.
Work has been prosecuted all the
week on tho sidewalks being built by
the corporation. The Delaney ave
walks are receiving attention and
when completed no more improvements will be undertaken till spring.
Tho new walks are: on the east side
of Main street, from Baty's hotel to
the hospital; on the west side of Main
street, from the tiushop to the city
hall; on the north side Delaney ave,
from Main street to Bpringer bridge,
and on the south side from Mam
street to Arthur street. Crossings
have also been laid down in several
places on Main streot, all forming a
vast Improvement in the appearance
of the city.

Mark   Manley  received word on
Tuesday afternoon that thc supreme
w. v. isssits.u Depart*.
W. F. DuBois, superintendent at
the Arlington, has severed his connection with the company, having
been offered a more lucrative position
elsewhere. Ho has been in charge of
the property ever since the Arlington
Mines, Limited, took hold of it, and
he has seen it developo into one of
the big mines of West Kootonay.
The company was loth to part with
Mr. DuBois' services, but the economy being practised by the manage
ment forbade any heavy increase in
salary. Mr. DuBois and wife left for
Sandon on Mondny and his successor
hns not yet been announced.
liomlliolsler Upeulssg I'p Well.
The present lessees of thc Bondholder are opening up thai property
in a thorough manner and are getting out plenty of ore. The new
drift started some time ago farther
down the hill has carried ore 'rom
the start and is yielding splendid results. Ily the first, of December the
lessees expect to have a full carload
to scud dowu for shipment.
Billy Harrington and Billy Lee
pnrpose doing some work on tho
Champion group, Twelve Mile.
It is not unlikely something will
eventuate on the Young Bear group,
near the Bondholder, at an early
date.
The only thing new about the Republic is that thc property has been
turned over from tho trustee to the
company.
M. Ginlzburger, manager of the
Monitor mine, at Three Forks, has
taken an option on lhe Kaslo smelter
scheme. v
The case of Marino vs Alexander,
taken on 'appeal, hns been adjourned
till the next court at Nelson. It
arose over the Marion mine, at New
Denver.
Thc Hewett, at Silverton, is shipping no oro just now, owing to the
bad roads, so the management is
seizing the opportunity to push development.
The Bank of Montreal has got a
judgment against the Noonday-Cur-
ley Mining Co. for the sum of $600.
The interest of the company in the
Noonday-Curley group at Silverton
is to be sold.
W. D. Wrighter, of' Spokane, one
of the principals of the Iron Horse
syndicate, has been elected a director
of the American Boy Co , operating
in the Sandon camp. The American
Boy is shipping 12 cars of ore each
month.
The lessees of the F.xchange, on
Dayton creek, have 10 tons of ore
sacked for shipment and it will go
forward so soon as rawhiding permits. Some magnificent ore is being
broken down, a sample test this week
giving $08.40 in gold and 247 oz in
silver.     	
Probable Deal on tho Neopuwa.
It is altogether probable the Neepawa group, Ten Mile, will be working in the course of a few days. In
the early fall AV. H. Sandiford got a
representative of British capital to inspect the property and he was well
Satisfied with what he saw. He offered to take the group on n working
bond covering 18 months, the first
payment falling due in six months.
The owners expect to sign papers
next week.
Body Sent East.
The remains ofthe late L. R. Harrison were sent cast to St. John, via
Nelson, on Friday, a large number
of acquaintances attending the funeral to the depot. John Keen, of
Kaslo, came over on Friday morning
to straighten up the affairs of the deceased, at the instance of 0. T.
Stone, who was acting for the relatives. Mayor York superintended
the arrangements for thu shipment of
the body.	
Tsissshi'.-ss' to "ills'... Auother Shipment.
The force at the Tamarac has been
increased to six men and development is progressing in a satisfactory
manner. Ore is being broken down
in each ofthe workings. Quite a lot
of It lias been sacked up and anethei*

AN
HUMBLE
HERO
BY THOMA8  P. MONTFORT
-Copyright. 1901 by Thomas P. Montfort
"If I hadn't meant It, I wouldn't
bave raid IL Now I hope you're satisfied."
Sim was thoughtfully silent for almost a minute.  Tben be said slowly:
"1 know lt was cowardly for me to
act like 1 done, a-runnln from tbem
cattle. But, Lord a-mlgbty, how waa
i to know tbey was cattle 'stead of
soldiers wben I didn't look back to see
wbat tbey was?"
"Why didn't you look back Instead
of charging up tbere tbe way yon did
and making such a spectacle as you
did of yourself? Of course 1 was
ashamed of you.   How could I help
itr
"Humph! Ifs all mighty fine to talk
tbat a-way as long as you ain't never
been In my place. 1 guess tbat Mr.
Melvln, with all bis grand an mighty
airs, wouldn't 'a' done no different bis-
self even If you do think he's so
great"
Louisa raised her head and fixed ber
eyes on Sim. Tbere was an expression
ln ber face and a look In ber eyes tbnt
were new to blm, and tbey cansed bim
to shrink away from ber and look on
ber with a feeling of fear.
"Sim Banks," sbe said, "yon be careful wbat you say, for 1 positively will
bTuttieiHMthouoh her heart would break.
not bear to be Insulted by you. I'll
submit to wbat Mary Mann may say.
Because I caa't belp myself, but you
attempt to say such tblngs and I'll
leave yon In a minute and never live
wltb yon again. Is your opinion of me
se poor tbat yon think 1 am going to
fall In love wltb every man tbat comes
along?"
"No; 1 never raid anything about you
fallln In love wltb anybody."
"Don't you Insinuate anything of the
kind eltber.   It will be time enough for
you to nrruse me of thinking that man

Sbe arose and swept out of tbe room,
leaving 81m dumb with astonishment
It was the first time tn ber life tbst sbe

Still, be was more rejoiced than angered by her words, for be reasoned tbat
tbey proved conclusively that sbe bad

and tbat there was no probability of
Mrs. Mann's prediction coming true.
Almost ligbt hearted he went out on

the shadow of a tree and stood leaning
ever a fence near him.   It was Mrs.
Msnn, snd, looking up Into bis face,
she smiled sweetly.
"81m," sbe said, With a pretty air of
penitence, "I am sorry tbst I ssid anything today to make you mad at me, an
I nope you'll forgive me. Won't you,
please Y'
Slip hesitated for a moment, then
ssid:
"You done Loueesy a great wrong,
Mrs. Mann"-
"Don't call me that, Sim," sbe Interrupted "Don't you know I despise
tbst name?"
"Do you? Wby?"
"If you was a woman an had to bear
the name of somebody you didn't love,
you'd know why."
"Didn't you love your husbund?"
"You know I didn't"
"How should I know that?"
"You ought to know tbat a woman
never loves but oue man."
"An In your case Dick Mann wasn't
that one?"
"No."
"Who wae It?"
Mrs. Mann blushed and acted confused and finally stole a sly glance at
Sim's face that ought to have told him
tbe whole story. But he was thinking
of something else and looking ln another direction, so tbe e'ffect of that
smile and that glance was to a great
extent lost
"You ought to know tbat without
askin." she said demurely.
"Maybe 1 ought, but 1 don't, an 1
reckon It don't make no difference nohow."
"No, I reckon it don't not to you anyway," wltb a Bad sigh. "But you'll call
me Mary, won't yod, Sim?"
"Why, I guess so, if you're very particular about It It don't make any difference to me."
"It does to me. It makes all the difference In tbe world wbat you call me.
It don't matter about anybody else,
though."
"Well, 111 call you Mary, tben."
"Thank you. An now, Sim, you ain't
goln to be mad at me any more, are
yeu?"
"No, 1 guess I won't be mad at you,
but you done Loueesy wrong. You had
no right to say tbat about that stranger."
"No, I hadn't 81m. I know that now.
But 1 can't bear to bear you talked
about the way you was, an I felt I jest
had to take Loueesy down a peg or
two. I oughtn't to have said It, but
since I have said It I ain't goln to take
no backwater. Loueesy don't love you,
an she never will love you, but as certain as my name's Mary Mann she'll
fall tn love wltb tbat Melvln if sbe ever
gits to know bim."
"I don't believe It While ago she got
as mad as a wet ben 'cause I said
somethln 'bout ber thlnkln him great
shakes."
"Humph! You don't know much
about women folks or you wouldn't
set no store by tbat 1 know wbat
I'm talkln about Sim Banks, an, as I
said before. If you live you'll see I do.
Loueesy don't love you. I know sbe
don't But let ber go, 81m. Sbe ain't
Uie only woman, an there's one 1 know
tbat does love you with her whole
souL"
"One!   Who?'
"Great Lord! Are you blind—plumb
blind snd dumb?"
Sim did not reply at once, but stood
uneasily twirling bis hat about In bis
bands, first looking down at bis feet
tben casting a furtive glance at bis
companion. Wben at mat be did speak.
It was In cold, unlmpassioned tones.
"I reckon 1 ain't so blind an dumb ss
I might be." be said, "but you ain't
called no names, an I ain't makln oo
guesses."
"If you wssn't ss blind as a bat an
dumb ss an owl," Mrs. Mann ssid softly, "you wouldn't need for me to call
no names, an you wouldn't need to
make oo guesses either.**
"Mebby tbsfs so." Blm replied slowly, "an If I am bUnd I don't know that
I'm sorry. There's times In a body's
life. Mrs. Mann, when Ifs best te be
tbat a-way.1*
Without a word Mrs. Mann tnrned
away and, entering tbe bouse, slammed the door shut behind ber. Sim
walked on down the street chuckling

CHAPTER V.
YOUB UNCLE JONATHAN TURlfEB.
Melvln was more fortunate than he
bad dared hope, for be bad gone bnt a
short distance wben be came Into a
road and after following that a little
way ran on to a bouse.
It Is true It wss not much of a house,
being merely a small log cabin, and its
surroundings were meager and uninviting, promising little In tbe way of
comf Ma; but for all that. It would afford shelter and food, and that was a
great deal under tbo circumstances.
ne rode up to tlie tumble down rail
fence tbat stood between tbe yard and
the road aud was preparing to call to
let his presence be known when a man
came around a corner of the bouse.
He was a little, wiry, weather beaten
old chap, almost bidden uuder a mammoth broad brimmed straw hat. He
was not expecting a strange visitor,
and the appearance of Melvln was s
great surprise to blm. He stopped
short, his mouth and eyes flew wide
open, and he stood staring In perfect
silence.
It was Melvln who spoke first
"I have lost my way," be said, "and
I am looking for a place to spend the
nlgbt What chance Is there for stopping with your'
If Melvln expected tbls msn to prove
as reticent and morose as tbe one he
bed just passed, bis mind was soon disabused of that Idea, for tbe response to
his speech, although not altogether relevant, was prompt, vigorous and effusive.
"Lord a-massyl" he exclaimed. "You
mean to tell me that you done plumb
up an lost your way an took to won-
derln round In tbe woods for all the
world liko a stray suckln calf? Great
granny, man, what made you go sn do
slch a thing as tbat?"
"For tbe reason that I conldn't belp
It, I presume," Melvln answered.
"Couldn't belp It! Wby. Lord a-mas-
sy, mon, wbat do you mean? You
ain't almln to tell me yon conldn't belp
glttln lost are you?"
"I guess I am."
"Waal, I'll he dad switched! That
shore beats my time, as the feller says.
The Idea of any human critter havln
little enough sense to go an git lost In
tbe woods! Why, soy, a cat knows
more than that."
"Very likely," Melvln replied. "But
what of It?"
"Nothln, only lt shore stumps me
tbat a growed up man like you'd go an
git lost like this."
"Isn't lt just barely possible that you
might do such a thing?"
"Do slch a thing as what?"
"Get lost." ;   '
"Me git lost! Your Uncle Jonathan
Turner git lost! Waal, that's a good
un shore. Say, did you ever hear tell
of a groun' hog glttln lest?"        **
"1 don't know that I ever did."
"Waal, wheDk.you do hear of slch a
thing you may tben begin to flgger out
that it's jest barely possible tbat Jonathan Turner mought some day lose
blsself In tbe woods."
"Do you think It Impossible for you
to lose your way ln a strange wood?"
"No. I don't think nothln 'bout It
I jest know It's Impossible."
"How would you keep from losing
your way?"
"Jest like I'd roll often a log. I'd
Jest do It."
"Suppose you were In a st.-ange
place, and, coming to two roads, you
didn't know which one to take. Then
what?"
"Oh, I'd know all right which one to
take."
"How would you know?"
"Jest have sense enough to know,
as the feller says."
"Would you? Well, aU right I am
anxious Just now to learn whether or
uot you can give me shelter for the
night?"
"I guess that's so. Rid a right smart
piece today, I reckon?"
"Yes. quite a way."
"Jedgin from appearances, I'd take
you to be a stranger ln these parts?"
"I am."
"Waal, wbar mought you hall from,
If I may make so bold as to ask?"
"I'm from the north."
"From tbe north, eh? Waal, that's a
right smart big spread out sort of a
place, as I understand It, an a feller
niougbt come from tbar an still not
come from uowbar In particular. Reckon you ain't no reason for not tellln
jest what Identical spot ln tbe north

"None In tbe world. I'm from Chicago."
"Are, eh? I've beam tell of that

"Yes."
"More account than Beckett's Mill

"Reckoned from what I'd beam tell

"Yes, some."
"Guess you ain't one of tbem preach-
In fellers come down yere sorter fig*

"No."
"Never preach none, ehl"
"I never have."
"Uh, bub! Jest a plain ever*day
common cussln man. I reckon?"
"I haven't ever made It a practice to
do mucb 'cussln,' as yon say, out I've
almost been tempted today to wish I
was an expert In that line. But say,
how about stopping with you tonight?
I've got to find lodging some place, an4
It's about time I was knowing where."
That's so. stranger; yes, slr-ee. Jest
about time you was findln out wbar'
yes. sir. Reckon you ain't sorter fig-

"No, I'm no schoolteacher."
"Hain't eh? Guess mebby yon

notion of buyln a farm In these parts?"
"No. All I'm looking around for now
Ib a place to spend the nlgbt."
"Edzackly. Naturally you'd be more
Interested ln that than anything else
Jest now."
"Yes, ond 1 asked If I conld stop
wltb you."
"That's a fact stranger. You shore
done that very Identical thing. I ain't
a-pretendln to say you didn't"
"But you haven't answered me."
"No, I guess I ain't I'm glad you
jogged my memory, strsnger, 'cause I
got my mind to runnln on tbem other

You know bow slcb things are sometimes."
"Yes, but ere you going to answer

"Why, to be shore I am. What reason under the sun could I have for not

"No, I'm nothing of tbe kind. But,

"Wby, 1 reckon not I hain't no Tight

Kliss   Edward  Hs»»   Kl*ht   Bis   Yolntn****
Made Abont Hia Mothar'a Death.
Amid all the bother of getting himself properly throned, named end
crowned, King Edward VII. has
snatched time to devise a unique
memorial to his mother. Word
comes from London that he has ordered, through the leading International clipping bureaus, eight sets of
scrap books, each set to contain
whatever was printed or spoken of
the late Queen at the time of her
death. The clippings, gathered in
every country and ln all tongues,
and ranging from the highest illus-
trats?d weeklies to the cheapest provincial prints, fill 100 volumes, although the pages are of full newspaper slzo. They are pasted upon
light gray bristol board and each
page hinged before binding. The
binding Is of morocco —half the sets
red, corner pieces and each volume
stamped with the royal 'arms In
heavy gilt.
The binding would be black were
the volumes destined to remain in
Great Britain. The destiny of all
but one, set is to be scattered
through Oreater Britain, India, Australia. New Zealand, Canada. South
Africa: ench will receive a set of the
gift of the King. The mourning color varies so throughout the Empire
it was thought host, to use ordinary
book tints. His Majesty's loyal colonies will no dnuht appreciate the
gift.
"V—■■ an Irish Ball.
Before the days of proper safeguards
s good many cattle got In the paths of
Michigan railroads and were killed
outright or so badly Injured as to necessitate putting them out of misery.
These happenings frequently afforded
the owners of the cattle an opportunity
to bring suit against tbe railroad companies, so that the* employees were required to be very careful as to details
and to keep a strict record of tbe manner of a cow's death, etc. Regular
printed reports of such cases bad to
be turned in by tbe section master,
wbo was required to fill out blanks
stating thc probable age of the deceased animal, weight, color, distinguishing marks snd disposition of carcass,
the animal beiug sometimes cut up
and sold for beef.
Naturally It was an Irish section
"schuperintlndher" who, like Flnnl-
gan in his terse report of a wreck,
simply stated, "Off ag'ln, on ag'ln—Fin-
negan," made out tbe record of a certain bovine tragedy In a characteristic
way. Mike guessed pretty well at the
age and weight and color of tbe dead
cow, but when be came to tbe line
"disposition of carcass" be scratched
bis bead reflectively.
"Sure," be muttered, "she doled alsy,
annywsy." Tben opposite the line be
scrawled "Kind snd gentle."

▲ certain newspaper proprietor bad a
way ot appearing in tho composing
snd press rooms at tbe most unexpected
times, and as bis visits often resulted
In s general "shakcup" of the working
forces of tbe rfiper tbey were owalted
wltb fear and trembling by tbe employees.
One time one of tbe pressmen, sn excellent workman, wbo bad been tbere
many years, but was sometimes guilty
of a lapse of sobriety, bad a blsck eye
and was in a quandary as to wbat excuse he should offer If thc proprietor
noticed it By a sudden Inspiration he
seised an Ink roller and daubed some
Ink on his face, quite covering the discoloration. Presently tbe governor
came In sud, wltb tbe foreman, went
through the room, commenting on every detail and looking very sharply at
every workman. When about to leave,
he suddenly pointed to the Inky pressman and said. "What Is that man's
name?"
The man quaked In his shoes until he
continued slowly: "I want you to give
tbat man 5 shillings a week more
wages. He is the only man In tbe
room wbo looks ss If be had been
working."
A Devoted Mother.
Altbongb looked upon as vermin and

s good mother and probably treats ber
young ones more kindly than many
of her human enemies treat theirs. A
weasel, carrying something Id ber

a tree. The observer, applying lighted
straw, soon smoked her out She then
darted toward a stone wall, near which
she was attacked by s terrier, which
speedily slew ber. She fell an easier

In her teeth. Anxious to see wbat this

LORD MAYOR OF LONDON
l'ltle   Flrsst   lteats.wosl by ICItrard III.   In
1354 —ossse Iisterestlisg Historical I■•-
fisriliallssss -Tls«! C'sltjr ssf L.tisslsils.
The now Sheriffs of London wero
sworn in on Saturday, 28th Sept.,
and the new Lord Mayor electod. After those important events tho Slnie-
val breakfast took place at the 0 racers' Hall, where a company of nearly three hundred assembled, The
Sheriffs elected on Midsummer Day
last were Mr. Alderman J. C. Bell
and Mr. Alderman Horace B. Marshall, M.A., head of the large publishing firm that bears his name. The
next Lord Mayor in rotation is Sir
Joseph C. Dimsdale, Alderman of the
Cornhill Word, and the junior representative of the city in Parliament.
He is a banker, was knighted at the
end of his year of office as Sheriff in
181*4, is a Pust Master of the tiro-
curs' Company, a Past Grand Master of the Free Masons of England,
and for live years represented the
City Corporation in the London
County Council.
The first municipal institutions of
London wore recoived from the Roin-
tyis, and they have endured in their
main features to the present day. In
Saxon times it was in reality an independent state, and William the
Conqueror only gained possession of
tho city by means of a treaty. About
eight years after he granted a charter, which is still preserved, addressed to William the llishon*. Godfrey
tho Portreeve, and all the Burgesses,
promising that they shall be "law-
worthy" (i.e., possessed of privileges), hs they were in the days of
Edward the Confessor. Tho Portreeve, however, received the Norman
title of bailiff, which in 1180 was
changed to Mayor, the first holder
of the title being Henry Fitznlwyn,
who filled the office for 24 years. On
his death a new charter was gri/Iitcd
by King John In 1214, directing the
Mayor to be chosen annually, as has
ever since been done. The title of
Lord Mayor was first bestowed In
1354 on Sir Thomas Legge by Edward III. Aldermen were first appointed by a charter of Henry III. iu
1240, and were elected annually until
1394, when a charter from Richard
fl. directed them to be chosen for
life
The Corporation of the City Of
London consists of the whole body of
citizens or freemen, under thc style
of "tho Mayor, commonalty nnd citizens." The small portion of London
which is comprised within the city
and its liberties is divided into 27
wards. Each of tho words—except
two, which unite in this—elects one
Alderman and a number of common
Councillors, varying from four to
sixteen. There are thus 2fl Aldermen
and 202 Councillors. An Alderman is
elected for life, but the Councillors
for one year, although eligible for reelection. Thc electors in each case
are freemen, who may huve obtained
their freedom by birth, apprenticeship, purchase or gift, but who must
bo rated householders before they
inny vote at a wanl-mote, as a ward
meeting is termed. The I.ord Mayor
is elected by thc Liverymen (members of Guilds) of the several .companies assembled together at the
Guildhall, and to be eligible must
have scrvod as Sheriff of London.
Tho Livery may elect any Alderman
so qualified, but they usually select
the names of tho tws> senior Aldermen who have not piwsed the civic
chair. The names of the two selected
mon are then submitted to thc gen-'
cral body of the Aldermen, who usu
ally choose the first. Tho Lord Mayor
elected is prcss-nti-.l to tho Lord
Chancellor to receive the assent of
tho Crown to his election. He Is
sworn before the retiring Lord,Mayor
and Aldermen on November 8, and on
November 9 is escorted by the cltl-
Mns in tho Lord Mayor's procession
to the Royal Courts of Justice to be
presented to the Lord Chief Justice
and is again sworn. His public duties
absorb all his time, and more than
tho income of his office, $10,000. Ho
is expected to preside during the slay
over meetings for public and Isenevol-
ent objects, and to tuko part in ini-
pssrtant ceremonies, to open school:),
distribute prizes, initiate subscriptions for relief of distress, nnd nt
night to entertain eminent nnd distinguished personages at his official
residence, or to preside at chnrlty
festivals. As head of tho corporation
he presides at Common Hall, the
Court of Aldcrmon nnd ths; Court of
Common Council. He prosidos ot thc
Justice room of tho Mansion Houso.
and is first commissioner of the Central Criminal Court, a trustee of St.
Paul's Cathedral, and a Governor of
the Royal Hospitals and oths-r institutions, nnd of several charities. Ho
Is head of tho City Lfoutennncy, is
styled Right Honorable, and, although not of the Privy Council, he
nI tends when, on the demise of the
Crown, a new Sovereign Is proclaimed, nnd at the coronation Is present
ss chief butler, receiving therefor a

Giving oosl Ofsiltnt.
Cod not only loves a cheerful gls**
er, but the cheerful giver alwaya
gets his reward. That reward is
generally in the richer return of spiritual good, but sometimes the re-
vv'iisl is In larger material good. Of
this latter disss an interesting instance is narrated which occurred
years ngo when they were ruising
sul)-cn|itions to the Plymouth
Church, Cleveland, Ohio. Many
were the struggles aud sacrifices
which its wnlls represented an they
went up. One evening a lad said to
his mother: "I menu to put down
tivenly-live dollars to thc church. I
have nineteen dollars saved toward
a watch, and I guess I can work out
ths) other six dollars somehow."
So the savings of some yeurs went
into tin.so walls, but tho boy did
not regret tlio sacrifice, and the re*
misusing six dollars were also
promptly paid in.
The pastor was at thc East so-
Mciting help for Iiis church and men-
tlonod incidentally the boy and his
Watch. After service a gentleman
remarked to him: "I don't liko the
idea of thnt boy losing his watch."
"Nor I," said ono and another. So
a few gentlemen added to the monoy
until seventy-four dallars was con-
tributcd to buy him an excellent
gold watch which would lost him
all  his  life.
The wntch was presented at a
Sabbath School celebration, the day
aft..r the church was dedicated, ths
past or relating the circumstances
and lulling out the lad, whoso head
wns down on a seat before him,
weeping from excessive emotion. He
was a boy ot fifteen, modest but

The Greatest Case in the History of Modern Medicine is Completed by Another Sworn
Statement.
THE OTTAWA FREE   PRESS SUSTAINED.
A Prominent Ottawa Man Confirms Under Oath Every Statement Made by this Paper in the Original Story Published Nearly  Seven years ago.
w. n. u. No. a-in.
(From the Otta
Some seven   years   ago   the   Free
Press published a graphic account of
a rs'inarkablu case here in Ottawa.
A man named George H. Kent had
been cured of Height's Disease after
the doctors had given him up to die,
and the Free Press reporter, after a
most thorough investigation, published the whole story in detail, giving credit to Dodd's Kidney Pills for
thfl most miraculous cure.
The following sworn statement was
given by Mr. Kent in order to substantiate the almost incredible statement mode by the paper in its account of the case.
(Sworn Statement, Feb. 16th, 1895)
I, Usiorgs! Henry Kent, resident at
114 C'.iiiiijbriilgs' street, Ottawa, and
employed as a* printer in the British American Bank Nolo Printing
Company, in the said City of Ot-
tuwa, do solemnly declare that 1
rsmsnlfr it a duty to myself and to
uiy fellow men generally to make a
ds-clarntion as to the efficiency of
Dodd's Kirimcy Pills.
1. That I found them in my terrible case of Bright's Disease, from
which I suffered for almost one
year, of the greatest medical value.
} tan say confidently aad assure
an*, one interested, or a sufferer,
(hat I positively owe my life and
present excellent health to Uie results brought about by their use. I
was taken sick and confined to my
bed on December 28th, 1893, and
was successfully treated for La
GriffM, then Pleurisy, followed by
Kidney Troubles, and latterly
bright's Disease. I lost the use of
my limbs: my entire body became
swollen to a terrible size, and my
skin became as hard as and similar to leather, thc pores all having
closed up, and I "niflered tho most
agonizing pain. I was subject to
p, risxHral spells of utter prostration and insensilbilily, to a state of
absolute coma. I was also a victim of dangerous convulsions in
which my facial expression and
oths*r muscles would become severely contortsd and tense.
2. My rstrular physician attended
tss me, and, although medical consultations were held over my case
by two city doctors, nothing could
bis done. My case grew gradually
worse, and latterly 1 was given up
ns hs-peli'ss. My wife, friends, and
ns'ighbors wero certain from what
they saw and were told by tho visiting doctors that I would die in a
very short time.
.'l. My wife was casually n*aiding
is newspapiT about this time, and
saw a description of a similar case,
in which a patisnt gave testimony
s.f the relief and cure that haul been
effectred on him by Dodd's Kidney
Pills. I started to take them right
away, and from thc lirst pill I dis-
cove'red a chango for the better.
After (he first box I was wonderfully Improved, and at the end of the
fourth I was sure I was to get well
again. I continued tnJdng them until the sevsmtoonth box, and I can
uow positively declare ttiat I am
perfectly cured and able to do a
day's work with any of my com-
iades in the shop, and Dodd's Kid-
n.v Pills undoubtedly owed me. be-
taiiss* from starting to take them 1
I sink no other medicine wlintssver.
ANI» I mako this solemn declaration, conscientiously belloving Uie
siinie to be tnii*. ami by virtue of
tbss ACT H10SP1XT1NC HXTHA
Jl'PKIAI. OATIIH.

A CsiiiiinlsHloniT, etc.
The Free Press In tho article published In 1895 stated most positively that Dodd's Kldnoy Pills and nothing else wero entitled to the credit
of having saved tho dying man's lifo,
lund this was most emphatically ends rued by Mr. Kent in his sworn
Ht.iioine.it. Tho Free Tress also mid
WltllOUt qualification that tho euro
of Mr. Kent was an absolute and
permanent one. And while Mr. Kent
could not make a "worn statement as
to tlm future, ho stat-ed Unit he felt
ho was permanently cured.
Notwithstanding this there wore
many who could not bellovo Unit a
mnn' wlUi one foot In tho grave as
Mr. Kent, was could got a lasting
cure.
It occurred to tho Freo Press tho
olher dav that it would bo inlerest-
!„.- to enquire now, after tho lapse
of nearly sown years, as to lrnw Mr.
Kent was fooling.
Ifo had   removed   to   -108 Oilmour
wa Free Press.)
Street, and at that address a Free
Press reporter found him.
After reminding Mr. Keat of the article and his affidavit the newspaper
man asked him point blank :-
"Have you lost any time from
your regular work since you were
cured of Bright's Disease by Dodd's
Kidney Pills in 1895 7"
'Not a minute," answered Mr.
Kent, promptly.
"Have you since had the slightest
symptoms of your old kidney trouble
or anything like it ?"
"Not the slightest,"  ho said.
"You are sure that Dodd's Kidney
Pills and nothing olso saved your
life and restored you to your present
good health T"
'Absolutely sure. Why, my wife
and 1 are so grateful to Dodd's Kidney Pills that we have christened
our little girl, born in December, of
1896, by the name of 'Dodds.- This
shows you better than anything I
can tell you to what wo attribute
my recovery. I owe my life to
Dodd's  Kidney Pills."
"Would you be willisg in oider to
confirm our story published in 1895
to make another sworn statement?"
nsked the scribe.
"if it would do you any good I
havs* no objections," answered Mr.
Kent. "The Free Press was certainly well within the truth in every
Statement they published about my
case."
Mr. Kent, at the request of tlie
Frs*s* Press, has given the following
SWorn statement :—
SWORN STATEMENT, OCT. 3, 1901
1, CEOROE HENRY KENT, res-
ids nt at 408 Gilmour Street, in (he

T, (leorgo Henry Kent, then resident at 114 Cambridge Street, Ottawa, did appear beforo Charles A.

und its cure.
2. That in the declaration I set
foith that I believe that 1 was ab-

on February 16th.   1895.
4. Thut I hove never since that

Isnvo been used according to directions that has not been cured, and
I know positively of my own personal knowledgo of several extreme
ca*.cs whero Dodd's Kidney Pills
huvo effected satisfactory and per-
iisiinsiit  cures.
And I mako tho solemn  deelara-
t.'on,   conscientiously  believing    it
to bo true, and knowing that It is

Nothing could bo more convincing
than this plain declaration mode by
Mr.  Kent, and    tho    Freo rri-ss    Is
|ileased to bo able to present such a
Complete and emphatic continuation
of our article of 1805.
Tho Kent caso must, therefore, go
on record ns tho most, wonderful curs*
over heard of tsi   fhlfl city or prov
ince, overy detail of which has been
carefully substantiated by sworn
evidence.
To Dodd's Kidney Pills is due all
thc credit for having rescued and
Vt stored Uiis dying man and that after all hope had been abandoned and
the cold waters of the river of death
were lapping bis feet.

Mackenzie King, deputy minister
, of labor for the Dominion, has been
at Rossland, endeavoring  to  settle
■the strike existing there.   Like preceding officials, he is forwarding his
data to Ottawa.   By this time the
public pigeonholes must be filled to
overflowing with information dealing
with the strike, and it is high time
.something eventuated.     Less talk
and more action on the part of the
authorities would win favor for the
Liberal party.
Because of one or two events of
minor importance transpiring during
the week, the air has become surcharged with pessimistic stories.
There is not the slightest foundation

On the contrary, the outlook for the

.the usual time next year.   So far all
, the "seething unrest" appears to be in
Vancouver and Victoria, burgs that
-are prone to become excited on the
slightest provocation. The interior

Slocan may take warning from the
.financial position of Sandon and continue to operate its civic machinery
on an economical scale.   From thc
-present position of affairs, Slocan may
. be assured of an exceedingly low tax
rate to meet expenses for 1902.   It Is
••thought a rate of 10 mills on the dot
lar will be ample for all purposes,
.yielding, over the incidentals nnd
.salaries, sufficient funds to build all
the sidewalks required.   More than
.•that Is not as yet required.   Sandon
is to sweat under a harden of 22*.
-mills on the dollar, enough to make
/any man hot under the collar,   The
f .people of Slocan do not wish to be
similarly situated, and there is no
reason why they should either.   The
.city   mast  be  assured  of  greater
.things in the future ere embarking
into heavy expenditures for extens
ive pablie improvements.   Slocan is
/doing nicely just now and a little
more of the nursing process won't
(hurt It for a year or two.   Be canny

KNTKIlriUSK REPORT.
Another report has been issued to
the stockholders in the Enterprise,
covering a period of 18 months ending December 31, 1900. It states
that although the company obtained
possession of the property immediately following its incorporation, It
was not until tho end of February,
1900, that the work could be started
at the mine, prior to which the only

work carried out was the shipment
ofthe ore already mined, and the
erection ot the necessary buildings
for the men, etc. Actual working
soon revealed the fact that to sort the
ore by band was not only expensi *e
but wasteful, and consequently steps
wero taken for the erection of a suitable concentration plant, pending
which shipments were restricted and
work principally devoted to the development of the mine.
The accounts show a profit of £5,-
908, thc whole of which has been em-
§ loved in meeting the cost of further
evelopment, the erection ofthe con
centrator, and other capital expendi
tare. Details in connection with the
design of the concentrator and the
time required for the supply of the
machinery brought the winter of
1900 01 so close that its erection
could not be taken in hand till the
spring of the present year.since when
every effort was made to push the
work forward. It is now completed,
and advice of its having started regular work is daily expected. With
a view to the saving of both time and
labor, a complete compressor plant
for machine drill work has been installed, which, together with the concentrator, is driven by water power,
requiring no fuel and very little attendance.
Early in August last thc mine superintendent estimated the quantity of
oro in sight as being sufficient to keep
the concentrator supplied with 50
tons dully for 500 days. This quantity has been farther increased by
subsequent developments.
