The question of tlie appointment of
a city clerk gave rise to considerable
discussion, tke mayor I olding tha
economy should be practiced. Sime
uf the aldermen held that there was
very little work to de and a smaller
..alary should be paid.
The mayor stated Dr. Bentley was
willing to take thc position at $25 a
month, with an extra $5 as health
inspector. The latter was a very
necessary position and the city would
benefit by thc appointment.
' Aid. McCallum and Barber moved

an additional $5 a month as hcn/ih

thecouncil deciaed no partiality could
be shown and the chief of polico was

The mayor suggested that it was
about time some steps were taken towards putting in an adequate system

Offered to the Municipal Elections Act
la the Legislature.
Of all the amendments to the Municipal Elections Act brought into the
legislature this session, thoso offered
by Mr. Oliver, member for Delta.are
the most sweeping and, if adopted,
will materially alter existing conditions.
One of thc provisions insists that
all municipal voters must, by January 1, make a declaration that he or
she has resided .within the munici
pality for 12 months, and has paid
all rates, taxes, assessments, rentals
and license fees, not chargeable
against real estate, and deliver such
declaration to the city clerk or asses-
tor. Non-resident property holders
will find their privilege of voting
taken away, as all voters must be
boon fido residents within the corporate limits.
Those in arrears far sewer, electric
light, and other civic ratis will not
be* allowed to vote. Moreover, only
a male, or an unmarried or widowed
female, owning propeity and properly registered, will bucntitlid to vote.
Again, no voter shall have his name
enters d on the list more than once,
stoing «way with tho extra votes un
dci the ward system.
Any person impt"*pcrly added to
or omittrd from the votrr's list mav
be ordered to be left off or added on
application te a magistrate or judge.
Under the present law names may be
added which have been left off by
mistake, but there is no machinery
fur getting a name off' which has been
improperly put on.
Nominations, as now, will take
place on the second Monday in January of each year, and tho polling on
the next Monday instead of the fol
lowing Thursday. The clerk, instead of the mayor, 6hall cIosb the
voter's list and certify to its correct
ness. The list has to be closed not
later than January 5, and to be
printed and ten copies posted up in
cunspicnous places in thc municipality within throe days thereafter.
Were the bill to carry, Slocan's
voter's list would drop to less than
100 names.

128*intcrest in the blocan townsite,
and, as such, hns instituted proceed
ings against Frank Fletcher for a
trustee's accounting of all transactions in connection with tho said
townsite. Selling real estate here
was evidently a winning proposition,
as the townsite companv distributed
122,400 in dividends. Plaintiff asks
for a declaration of title, accounting
of all monies received on sales, and
payment of proportion of same due
him. Defendant expresses himself as
willing to render an account cf his

Supt. Marpolo, when through here
last week, gave orders to keep the
tug Sandon in commission when the
repairs were effected to the Slocan.
The latter will make two round trips
each day, leaving hero at 7 a.m. She
will lift all the ore offering at the
lake ports, while tho tug will look
after the barges, It took years and
a bad accident to get tho desired service.        	
Aslji.iiiisssl Again.
Jas. Cross, proprietor of the Royal
hotel, has received lhe following interesting letter from Jack Clarke,
ono of tho Slocan boys serving in
South Africa. It was dated from
Klerksdorp, March 22, just previous
to the big battle at Hart's River:
"I have been intending to write to
you for some time, but it is so hard
to get a chance, and when vou get a
letter written it is such a hard job lo
find an envelope.   Well, we  have
got pretty well up to the front, and
will start out on a big drive in a dav
or two after Delarey.   He is supposed
to be out about 15 miles with 1700
men,while Dewet is supposed to have
joined him with 300 more, making
them 2000strong.   French is coming
in the other w..v with 12,000 men and
we will then have about 25,000 men
to go out this way under General
Kitchener; so if they can't get him
with this odds they had better give
it up.   They have these blockhouses
about 600 yards apart en  all  tho
kopjes, and all along the railway, so
it is pretty  hard for the Beers to get
around   without   being  teen.   The
block houses are made of corrugated
iron, sonic, ronnd and some square,
and buili up for about four feet with
rock and others with sod—just depends which is the handiest.   About
12 or 15 men are in each.   There
have been about 1500 Boors captured
the last two or three weeks.
"There is a great gang when you
get about 10,000 men   camped   together and horses for each; then there
are the oxen and mules en the transport.   It is surprising, and you could
hardly believe lt without seeing it.
This is the terminus of the road.about
120 miles west of Johannesburg.   1
never saw trains runninT bo thick as
they were when we came up.   You
would see five er six in a string, and
not over 51X3 yards apart, all In the
military service.
"Weil, I wish you wore here. It if
a fine country, and I think they have
the best part of the world. It is all
fine rolling prairie as far as you can
sec. They grow all kinds of fruit
here and the climate ia good, as far
as I can see. I think it is the finest
stock country, as there is no wintqr,
and lots of grass and fairly well watered. From Johannesburg up this
way for about 50 miles is where the
Hand runs. Big stamp mills are
along it, about every 5G0 yards.
"This outfit is pretty strict and
they never let us down town. I never
get any Scotch here, except one day,
when I rustled three drinks, but I
am fc'.'ling fine. There are big
camps of Dutch women in the refugee
camps, but the troops are not allowed
to go near them. There are about
2000 here, and at several places along
the line thcro were camps of 5000 and
COOO. You had better come out here
after this war is settled aud wc will
try and make something. I have
just been to church and have come
back, watered horses, and am ready
for dinner—mutton stow today."

Lawyers had poor picking In Dead-
wood in t_e hnrrah days of the camp,
fsoinehow the motley «*rowd there got
into the bablt cf settling disputes out
of s?ourt—naostly with six shooters and
Winchesters. Homicides were of frequent iraurreoee—tn fact, the "man
for breakfasi'- schedule was observed.
But vigilantes often interfered end persisted In dropping the killer, even
though discussion of tbe Incident was
continued. Then, too, when a shot waa
taken at a claini Jumper, tbat waa considered a privileged communication, according to the unwritten law. Except
for the fashion and common practice
of the camp all tbe lawyers In It—and
there were lots of tbem—would have
had a case apiece and at short Intervals. As matters stood, however, It
wssn'l often tbat any one of tbem was
able even to arrange for a fee.
When BUI Hooper took a case for
f-25, bis law partner seriously objected,
though It was tbe first either bad had
In weeks.   BUI said he did It to en*
courage trade. Tbot waa no excuse,
for while human anatomy might be
carved wltb Impunity or uuy sharp Instrument, prices couldn't be cut Bill
expressed tbe opinion that bis client
was a fool for employing a lawyer anyway, for be didn't have a ghost of a
show of winning his case, and to take
Ids gold was Just like finding It These
were also trivial matters, be was Informed. As for finding gold, wasn't
tbat wbat brought tbem. all to tbe
camp?  No one expected to work for It
BUI wanted to stand well wltb hla
partner, wbo had kltb or kin somewhere from whom bo thought be conld
borrow money If It came to tbe plncb.
BUI was Isme. As tbe reads to Cheyenne and Sidney were both long and
dusty, be preferred to ride on a stage
rather than walk out of camp. Prom
the looks of things, unless business
picked up one means or the otber
would bave to be resorted lo before
long. It was policy for Bill to humor
bis partner. He went to tbe saloon
keeper wbo bad mashed tbe bead of a
tusu with a bottle and told blm be
would bave to charge him $100 Instead
of $25 to take charge of bis case. Wben
tbe client remarked something about
It being a holdup game and declined
to be -rubbed, tbe lawyer told blm there
wru no defenae, for the assault bad
been unprovoked and $100 would be
dirt cheap to get him off. BUI pointed
out tbat tbe victim waa likely to die,
In which event tbe place to wblcb tbe
glumlll man would go was not noted
for laying up treasures. Plnslly a bar
gain waa made, with tbe understanding tbst a hundred dollar fee would be
paid If tbe case was dismissed or tbe
accused went free; otherwise no charge
was to be made by BUI.
Tbe trial was held in tbe office of tbe
Justice of tbe peace, and tbe room was
parked. Preliminaries over, tbe Justice asked wbo appeared for tbe defense. No one answered. Everybody
looked at Bill, wbo was standing In the
doorway. He continued smoking, but
msde no otber sign. Wben questioned,
tbe prisoner said BUI wss his counsel.
"Do you sppear for the defense,
Counselor Hooper7" asked Ihe Justice.
"Tbe prisoner aaya you agreed to."
"He's mistaken."
"Do you Intend to take part In tbla
"Do you refuse to appear In this
''What do yon mean, Counselor Hooper, by taking a nan's money and tben
ri'flining to do your duty to your client's"
"Didn't see tbo color of his money,"
was the only comment of BUI. He nnd
tbe Justice were ancient enemies. The
latter thought be saw a chance to put
the lawyer In a hole. He conferred
with the prisoner and tben fairly mured: "Hooper, you ought to be turned
out of court and out of ramp. The
prisoner says be hired you io defend
blm and took you for a man of your
word and depended on you and < on-
Mlted nobody but you wben there are
piles or men in this camp wbat-knows
more law than you."
BUI waited till the Justice exhausted
himself and sank back In his cbalr.
Putting away at his cigar so be
wouldn't bave to waste more time und
matches on It wben ready to resume
hla smoking, he exclaimed:
"'You see It was this way: Jim come
to me and wanted me to take tils case.

The crowd guffawed In chorus, either
because Bill's estimate was common

Justice himself gave tbem • chance to
concur therewith. Here the temper of
thc Justice boiled over. He thumped
bis desk and yelled out, "Did you tell
this prisoner be couldn't get Justice In
tbls court?"
"This Is no court,** was the comment
Without seeming to notice tbe sarcasm or Implied Insult, the Justice repeated bla queatlon. It called forth
thia response: "Yea, I said Just that,
and, what's more, I believe It, too, and
so does everybody In tbls camp. A
man can't get Justice while"—
Qasptng witb rage, tbe Justice threw
himself on top of tbe desk, wbacklng It
wltb bla fists till tbe boards cracked
and delivered tbls decision: "I'll show
you, you clubfoot duffer, tbat a man
can get Justice In tbis court; I'U show

Outside the ofliee tbe man wbo waa
released from custody paid Bill $100.

next stage out of Deadwood, for be was

Folllac the Csaaaaasa Bniay.
Tbe widow of an English army officer was visiting me with ber son. a
charming little fellow about five years
old. The mother told me with pride
how honorable be waa, bow blgb
minded, and tbat she had never for an
instant seen ln blm indications of any
ttalta that were low or base.
The child was put to bed every night
at 0. We dined at 7. I was sitting In
the drawing room one evening before
dinner. Tbe room waa dark, tbe doors
open, and my seat commanded a view
of both tbe stairway and tbe dining
room. Tbe table was set, and in tbe
center waa a dish of tempting peaches.
Presently tbere came to my ears the
patter of little bare feet and a childish figure clad In a nightgown stole
down tbe stairs, through the ball. Into
the dining room, up to tbe table. Small
fingers seised tbe topmost peach from
tbe dish, and the little fellow turned
and trotted away up stairs again.
Aa I sat ln the dark in an agony of
apprehension tbere esme^agaln tbe
patter, patter of little feet and a white
clad figure stole down the stairs,
through tbe ball. Into tbe dining room,
up to tbe table. Small lingers replaced
tbe stolen peucb Just where It bad
been, and a stubborn little voice mut
tcred, "Done again, old devil!"—Har

The biggest authenticated bag secured at one shot of which 1 hs ve ever

A patriotic enterprise of a   somewhat unusual character is Dr. Con-
an     Doyle s .pamphiet,   "ihe War in
South     Africa;     Its      Cause     and
Oonduct."     When diplomatic     relations     between the Dutch republics
and Great     Britain     were strained
the foreign press practically     unanimously loos-, the Doer side, and   represents, d     Britain as a swaggering
and g.asi'ing bully,  bent on forcing
a ilgs.t with and robbing VWo weak
pastoral   .countries.       When what
may bo desuibed as tbe regular war
was in pi ogress t be continental press
n ng wiih varied expressions ol what
muy not unfairly  be called    hatred
and  contempt of  the  British       soldiery,      concerning     whose courage
and conduct ull manner of lies were
repeated.     When the war passed into  iia  present 'irregular stage      the
torrent of calumny deepened,      and
assertions of inhumanity and     outrage were eiinumerable,   centring   to
some  extent  around   the  concentration camps,  the occasional      executions     which  wero  found  necessary,
and the abortive negotiations     for
peace.   British newspapers from time
to time noticed some of these    slanders to refute them, but for a   long
time no urgent id attempt was made
to  put  forward   the   British       side
of the case.
It is this that Dr. Conan Doyle
has set out to do in bis pamphlet,
a small volume of 156 pages,
which is published by Messrs. Smith,
Elder A Co. of London. The un-
drrtaking is distinctly patriotic.
While at its price of sixpence a pro-
lit is left for the vendor, "to my
publisher and to myself," in Dr-
Conivn Doyle's own words, " thia
work has been its own reward."
And he adds: "Our further ambition is, however, to translate it into tall European tongues, and to
send a free copy to every d'-i'uty
and every newspaper on the continent and7in America." For money
to aid in this he made an appeal.
The book within the first week after publication achieved a sale of
2,*>0,000 copies, and Dr. Conan Doyle
has announced through the columns
ot The Times that the plan of translating the work will be carried out.
"So rancorous is the feeling in Germany against us." remarks Dr.
Doyle, "that we have been unable,
so far, to find a publisher who
dare publish a moderate account of
the British case, although all expenses were guaranteed* by us. Could
anything be more suggestive of the
complete absence of elementary fair
play which has marked all this monstrous agitation? The one fair-
minded German whom we have met is
Baron Tauchnitz. who has included
the book in his English library.
Meanwhile, the German translation
ii nearly ready, and, if we are unable to find a publisher in Germany
we .shall print 5.000 copies in London and send them ourselves to those
who we . desire to influence." In
Holland the same difficulty was experienced.

smiled down on the rippling waters of
the lagoon, but Marian Dane was blind
to Its loveliness as sbe 'leaned back
languidly in ber gondola. These month*
of traveling bad failed to make bet
It was all tbe fault et tbe pink rosea,
she told herself. Why could they not
keep to their own proper season of
June? But In these lands of summer,
In Italy and southern France, even during January, their fragrance, like a
breath of poison, bad deadened ber Interest In new scenes and experiences.
And yet pink roses had once meant
happiness to Marian. They had first
come into her childish life in pleasant
dreams. When sbe grew into a slender
slip of a girl and graduated from tbe
Young Ladles' seminary, It was only
tbe frantic clasp of her fingers on a
bunch of roses tbat kept her voice from
faltering over, the prise essay. Jack
Dawson's card was tied to the long
stems, and Jack and she were boy and
girl lovers. It bad come about naturally, for tbey lived side by side, wltb
no envious wall to bar tbelr twilight
confidences—only a low hedge. Tbey
were In that delicious stage wben
secrecy seemed to add a new tie of
love—a tie tbat shut out the rest of the
world. So she wore the ring on a ribbon round ber neck and atole down to
meet ber lover by tbe big pink rosebush.
Ab, bow long ago that seemed! Afterward bad come a dreadful day, tbe
day of tbe quarrel. Being tbelr first,
tbey took It far too seriously. It waa
In tbe old garden, whose charm for
once waa broken. Jack was Impetuous, abe cool and reproachful. Beforo
either of tbem knew what had happened she bad slipped tbe ring into bis
band, and be was out of sight serosa
the hedge.
Sbe bad sat tbere at first too stunned
to think, but pride came to her aid.
Her cheeks flamed aa righteous Indignation grew. She planned It all out-
Jack was too Impetuous and must
hsve a lesson, and aba was quite firm
enough to administer It It waa a
very proud little figure that started
for tbe bouse, defiantly pulling a bunch
of pink rosea out of her belt and flinging them into the grasa. But tbe next
minute abe waa down on ber kwws,
gathering, tbem up carefully aa sbe
whispered, "It waa not your fault
poor dears!"
Slowly tbe days passed by. If Jack
were having a lesson, he waa learning
It In silence, for no overtures came
from beyond the hedge. Her anger
waa dead, and In Ita place was tbe
growing fear tbat he would never
again come to her. In vain she bad
called up all ber pride and tried to
follow bla example. It was too bard
a task when be was ao near.
She grew restless. She would go
abroad and leave even hla memory far
behind. Mr. Dane did not suspect wbat
was the matter wltb bla motherless
girl, but If sbe wanted a trip to Europe sbe should have It Jack must
have known about tbe plan, but he
made no sign. Tbey sailed from New
York. Among tbe gifts sent to tbe
steamer were no. pink rosea and no
card from Jack.
Now tbe splash of oars conld not
rouse ber from ber bitter reverie, but
as tbey turned a corner-a breath of
the old fragrance brought a atab of
pain to her beart. Tbey floated close
to a tiny garden aet like an emerald
between tbe dark buildings, and over
Its low wall bung a blooming spray.
At sight of the rosea cams renewed
longing for home. She would fight
against It no longer. She went back
to tbe hotel filled with peace.
A letter waa waiting for her. Aa ahe
opened It leisurely, she wondered what
bad moved Leslie Prince to write to
ber. Leslie had been one of tbe belles
of tbe home aet, but sbe and Marian
hud never been particularly chummy.
The letter began effusively (Leslie
was alwaya effusive):
tty D*arnt Marian—I hara a lurprtaa tor you. I
am en<afed.   Aad you can't gotta to whom—to
The sheet almost fell from Marian's
trembling band, but ahe forced herself
to read on:
It It ill vary au"dam. I bid so Idta that Im
rared lor mi, but ha dots—awfully—and lnititi oa
bring married In June. Now, I want you lor a
bridnimaid. Do prom lie that you will conn hotni

There was more, but she could read
no further. "To Jack!" that Is whut
her brain kept repealing. So soon-to

wau>'«*d her to be a brldesmald-lt was
too crtiel-at his wedding-never! She
would stay abroad alwaya. But as she
thought It over, through long hours of
the day and of the night, sbe found
herself feverishly eager to go. Deep la
uer heart there was a longing to see
him once again before be wna gone
from ber forever, but tbla sbe would
not admit, oven to herself. She wrote
thnt she would, accept the Invitation
with pleasure.
The weddlug waa to be on tbe 8tb
of June. The Dnnea should nave arrived in New York on the 0th. but
their steamer was delayed by storm,
so It was not until noon of tbe wed
ding doy that she found herself walk
ing through the well remeinberfd gar
den. The roses were nil In bloom, nnd
ns their fragrance met her lt socinr-d
Uint the past year must be a hlfieoiu-
dream. But no. it waa bla weddluc
day, snd sbe was to be a bridesmaid
aud carry pink rosea.
She dressed at borne, with tbe' aid
of her old nurse. Through tbe wiudow
came the garden scents, and alio could
even see tho pink glory of tbo old
trysting bush. And were these uot
some of its roses that Nancy offered
for her hair? She shivered as sho put
on tbe soft cllnglug dress. If it were
only ber shroud!
The carriage came and In a few too
ahort moments she was at tbe house.
They were finishing the dressing of
the bride. Leslie was Indeed beautiful.
Sbe Insisted on stopping to embrace
Marian. How poorly sbe looked, and
It waa a shame that tbo old steamer
had to be late. But lt would be alt
right about tbe procession; sbe need
only follow tbe other girls.
Everywhere pink roses! Tbelr fra-
grauce seemed to affect Marian like •
narcotic, but sbe drew herself up
proudly. Should she show the world
how she suffered? Now came tbe signal to start Marian clutched ber rosea
bo tightly tbat tbe tborns cut through
ber gloves, bnt she walked witbout
a tremor. Suddenly her new found
self possession vanished. Tbere, before
her, among the ushers, was Jack Daw-
sou. Her bead swam, but sbe walked
on mechanically uutll sbe reached the
landing overlooking tbe lower hall and
saw, pale and nervous as ever a groom
could be, Jobn Thornton. She understood it now. He was Jack—tbe only
Jack—to Leslie. A wave of relief, almost of happiness, surged over ber.
She never knew how sbe stood
tuough tbe ceremony. Aa ln a dream,
sbe was by bis side. He might bave
felt tbe trembling of tbe little figure
and her secret In her face. Perhaps he
did, for afterward, In a lull, she found
herself ln a corner of tbe porch, while
a dear voice was making Impetuous
explanations and appeals.
And for answer she bid ber blushing face in her buncb of pink roses.

•which   we reported last week as being exhibited in the American specu-
ativo    markets developed this week
into an excited bulge in prices.   The
continued dry and windy weather in
Kans.JA    and   the   southwest winter
wheat   country,   which had also obtained   to   some extent up into the
southern    part   of the spring wheat
country    in   Southern   Dakota    and
Southern    Minnesota    had   been the
means    of advancing the markets in
the   legitimate   trade, and was last
week paving the way for the speculative public to begin to take hold on
the    buying   side   of   wheat.   When,
therefore, with the beginning of this
, week no adequate relief from tlie dry
weather    wus    apparent, the further
advance that took place   was sufficient to set speculative buyers on lire
and on Wednesday, at the very time
| when good rains come to relieve the
situation,   an   excited advance took
placo   in   the markets, putting them
up tic to 21/jc higher than the day before.   Oa Thursday,  the active buyers   of    Wednesday   began to throw
their    wheat    back   on the markets.
Yesterday was a repetition of Thursday,   and   at    the close of markets,
closing    prices   showed   only an ad-
vane*.' of "4c to V$c over closing prices    last    Friday, although in the interval there had been an advance of
3c to 4c per bushel.   The legitimate
situation   is    very   little changed by
tho events of the week.
Manitoba wheat advanced with
Americun markets and on Wedas>sday
was very strong. Exporters were
sellers rather than buyers on tho asl-
vance. but one of the large milling
companies came into the market nnd
absorbed several hundred thousand
bushels. Altogether we estimate that
in the two days, Wednesday and
Thinsday. something like a million
bushels of wheat changed hands.
Prices were advanced from 72*/,!c 1
northern, and 69»«c 2 northern on
Friday last week to 76c and 78c on
Wednesday and some sales were made
at i/jc over that. By yesterday prices weie dowa again to 74V*jC l northern and "n»4c 2 northern, and buyers very scarce. 1 hard is worth 77c

FLO UK—The feature of the week
has been an advance of 10c per sack

sack of 98 pounds; Olenora. SI .90;

Pale,    Anaemic  and   Easily    Tired
Girls Often Fall a Prey to
Ie* young girls we look for abund-
«nt health and strength, rosy cheeks,
bright eyes firm, plump flesh and
constant cheerfulness. How often,
however, we meet young girls who
seem prematurely old, feeble, pale,
listless, thin and irritable. These
abnormal and dangerous conditions
are duo to a general weakness of the
blood, and should be cured just as
promptly as possible crt he whole
life of the patient will be ruined, if,
indeed, decline and consumption do
not speedily follow. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People are the
natural, logical and sure cure for
weak girls. These Pills make rich,
red blood with every dose. They
strengthen the nerves, act upon the
whole system and bring health,
strength and happiness to those wbo
use them.
Mrs. Hiram Rinkter, South Pelham
township, Welland county, Ont.,
says : "It is with pleasure that I
give this tribute to the health-rest oiing virtues of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. When my daughter, Lena, began the use of your medicine she was
in a most wretched condition. In
fact, we were seriously alarmed lest
sho might not recover. The symptoms were a feeling of languor and
Weakness, gradually growing woise.
She became pale, lost flesh, had llt-
thc appetite and was apparently going Into decline. Finally the trouble
became complicated with a persistent sore throat, Which gave her
grent dilHssilty in swallowing. She
was placed under the cure of a doctor who said her blood waa poor
and watery, and her whole system
badly run down. The doctor's
treatment did not help her much;
and then ai'ling on thc advice of a
neighbor, 1 bs*gar« to give her Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. The confidence
with which this medicine was urged
upon us was not misplaced, as I
soon noticed a distinct improvement
in my daughter's condition. The use
of ths* pills for some weeks completely restored her, and from that time
she has boon a cheerful, light-hearted girl,  the very picture of health."
Thi'so pills never fail to restore
health nnd strength in cases like the
above Through their action on the
blood and nerves they also cure such
il.siMRs'.s as rheumatism, sciatica, St.
Vitus dance, indigestion, kidney
trouble. partial paralysis, etc.
There are so many so-called tonic
oills. but they are all mere imitations ol this great medicine. Be sure
that yea get the genuine with the
full iiisiii..' "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for l'ule People" on every box. If
your deajer does not keep them they
will be sent post paid at 50 cents a
box or six boxes for $2,50 by addressing the Dr. Williams' Medicine
Co , Brockville, Ont.
