for telegrams, etc, amounting to
$5.50. There were also presented
certain accounts referred back from
last week. All were ordered referred tw (inance committee.
Fiminco committee reported in f.i-
vor ef a number of bills sent in last
week, including Elliot & LannieV
celebrated bill for $50, and totalling
Elliot sit Leiinie's bill gave rise to
the customary tempest, objection bu-

Aid.  Smith  ventured there were
iv.t sufficient funds to pay the bills,
but thc nnyor said  he would 81-ffe

Aid. McCalliuu asked to have the
school charges passed, which was
acceded to.
Aid. Barber objected to Elliot si

The cemetery question loomed tip
again and was advanced a point.
Aid. McCallum said he had interviewed Frank Fletcher, who WW
quite willing to give a title to the
present plot, but would rather substitute 101 uerofl elsewhere In the valley rather than the threr acres now
occupied. Thc matter rested with
the committee, who oould examine
the ground in the vicinity and choose
a site.
The mayor agreed with Mr. Fletcher's suggestion that the present
cemetery was tm close to tho city,
and thought the council lllould go
out in a body and select another nud
better site.
Aid. Worden remarked th.lt a lite
for a race track could also be chosen,
but the mayor said the city Was nol
in thai kind of business. Private
citizens could form themselves int.i »
company and send a oommlttee with
llu: council. They could look out
land both for a race track and a
cemetery, and there Would be nodif
Acuity In securing the land from Mr.
Several citizens, Aid. Worden replied, favored tho Idea fif a race
track, and if ground could be had on
favorable terms were willing to put
money into the scheme.
The mayor suggested the cttizens
and council should go together, select the ground desired, and a joint
committee wait on Mr. Fletcher and
secure tho title. His worship said he
wanted to contradict the statement
for Mr. Fletcher that the latter would
not grant a title to the present cemetery. Mr. Fletcher was perfectly
willing to do so, but bethought the
citv would gain more by taking a
larger site farther away.
The council agreed to go out and
inspect the ground next Monday
Aid. Worden brought np question
of licenses paid bv tho eity livery
stables, three of the places paying
$10 each and the fourth only $5, and
he wanted to know the reason for the
distinction made. Tho bylaw was
conned over, but not much enlightenment gained. The clerk was instructed to make out licenses for delinquents and give thc chief of police
orders to collect them ut once.
On motion of Aid, McCallum ond
Smith, the clerk was Instructed to
make out a list of nil persons liable
to take out a license within the corporation limits.
Aid. Barber again introduced the
cow question, the owners of the four
bovines in the city wanting the privilege of turning them loose In the
streets. The owners were willing to
pay for all damage done. The conn-
•il' were agreed, however, that no
such privilege could be granted.
Council adjourned.

John B. McKilligon, Surveyor of

nifties, Of thi* Mr. Melvilligan remarks:
"The question ns to the proper sys
tem "-f luicat'on of mines nnd mine
mis is a difficult one td determine.
The complaint of lhe mine owners
against the pl'VStnt tax is not, I understand, so much <ig.'iiu**t the rate of
taxation, or tht*. amount of the tax
levied from the whole industry, as
that the Incidence of thc tax is unequal b. (ween the different classes of
miiKS. It is claimed that by deducting merely the cost, of transportation
and treatment from the value of the
gross output, in order toarrive at the
taxable value, great Inequality is
caused, and tbat the proper method
of arriving at the taxable amount
would be to deduct also the cost of
mining. Assuming for tho '•'ake nf
argument that the oosl of milling was
added to tho other deductions, that
would n.n make the Incidence ofthe
tax equal upon all mines. Thc cost
of milling differs materially according to the localltV and nature of (lis;
ore mined. l,t is not equal In any
class of mines nor In nny localitv. It
sliders among high grade or. •, low
grade ores, and lu ores of equal
value Indeed, it may safely be as
sorted that tha ctn'. of mining iu any
'wo minis in this province is "not
"It hns also been asserted and
claimed hy mine owners that the tax
ought u> im deducted from the not
value received by the mine owner,
as It Is out of that sum that tin* tax
has uliiiuately to be paid, Tlie 0 '-'
"f transportation and treatment Is
also unequal, so thst the total deduc
tion* claimed are all unequal, if thr
CO t sf mining, therefore, were also
allowed, the Incidence of the tax
would still be unequal,'and be nol
any nearer equality than before.
The Assessment Act contemplates the
assessment of tho product of the
mine at a certain rale, and tlie market value Of that product would bo
the reasonable value on which to
assess. The tax on mines nnd minerals, as at present Imposed, is a tax
on tlie value of the product whieh
has been sold or removed irom tic
mine. The market value of thnt
product is not Influenced or deti r
mined bv the cost of production. The
value of bullion  Ii regulated   by
Othor Influences than the est of production.   If ihe market value of bul*
li >i> were upon the value DO • 11 which
i the   tax is levied, no deductions of
any kind would be allowed.
"In the case of personal property,
the assessed value of the property hi
as near as possible ihe market price.
- p would not be a cotreoi principal t"
deduct the cost of production from
ihe article of personal property, If,
however, the tax  on miin a i- C Matd
ered from a different standpoint, nol
SO much as a tax upon the pi. duet of
thn   mine as a  tax  upon  thu  mine
owners' ability io pay, then the mar
ket value of bullion or product is to
him  minus the Oast of production.
The tax a3 in now imposed is practically a royalty combining both principles, a tax on the product and on
the owner's ability to pay. The real
principle inv&lved in the taxing of
this important industry is moro a
question of publip policy than an abstract question of taxation.
"In a new country like British
Columbia certain industries require
encouragement and fostering care,
or to put it negatively, they require
not to be impeded by harassing or
burdensome taxation. Their ability,
or lhck of ability, to pay equal taxes
witli other industries should receive
careful consideration. If mining
needs this encouragement and fostering caro to induce capital to be
brought into this province for its development, then the lighter the burdens imposed, the less stringent its
restrictions, the better will it be for
the ultimate good of the province. If
the cost of producing gold and other
precious metals in this province is
greater and surrounded by greater
difficulties than the cost and conditions in other countries from whence
the world's supply is obtained, then
capital will prefer to invest in thc
latter." *\_J

Wednesday Night.
And the rains came en Wednesday
night and thc floods descended, and
in the morning Slocan mourned the
lo.=s of her two bridges over Springer
creek. Thc creek had beon running
pretty high all week and Wednesduy
evening there came a Heavy thunderstorm, followed by a drenching rain
all night, Thc rain, added to the
melting snow from the hills, turned
the creek into a raging torrent,which
tore out everything in its path.*
Tho Fletcher ave bridge was soon
under water, as the current had taken out the foundations to the east,
and the structure broke away. Notwithstanding the protective works
lower down, the current broke loose
and cut new channels, swirling
around In a!! directions. During the
night h Idt of driftwood came down,
and the main current was switched
from the centre of the Delaney ave
bridge to the weat approach. A jam
formed against the pier and it quick
ly gave way, causing about 100 feet
ofthe bridge to collapse.
In the early morn men were put to
work pulling the fallen timbers out
of the crock. A footbridge is being
built ncros', so as to accommodate
tlie people. Team traffic to the oast
of Springer crock is entirely cut off,
and it will bo some time beforo it can
be resumed. The expense to the city
will bo heavy.

Tho first annual meeting of tho
Slocan Co-operative Association was
held in the Union hall, on Tuesday
evening, when nearly all the shareholders wore present. A financial

I not to confess tbat
I bave alnce enjoyed

Ing tn happiness tbat day. was tbe 20th
-lay of .June In the year of grace 1747.
For on that day. being my nineteenth
birthday, 1 was promoted, though so
yonng, to be mate or chief officer on
board my ship, tbe Lady of Lynn,
Contain .laggard, tben engaged In the
Lisbon trade.
I will tell you presently how I waa ao
fortunate as to lie spprentlced to so
fine a craft as the Lady of Lynn. Just
now It la enongb to set down tbat sbe
was tbe finest Teasel In the little fleet
of ahlps belonging to my yonng mistress. Molly Miller, ward of Captain
Crowes. Tbere wero eight ships, all
ber own—the Lady of Lynn, tbe ship In
wblcb I served my apprenticeship; the
Jolly Miller, named nfter ber father;
tbe Lovely Molly, after herself; the
Joseph and Jennifer,. nfter ber par
cuts; tbe Pride of Lynn, tbe Beauty
of Lynn, tbe Glory of Lynn and tbe
Honor of Lynn—all of wblcb you may
take If you like aa named after tbelr
owner.   Holly owned tbem all.
1 bave to tell you In tbla place wby
one day In especial must ever be remembered by me as the most surprising and tbe happiest that 1 had ever
I waa standing on tbe quarter deck
en doty wben tbe boy came np tbe
companion, saying tbat tbe captain
wanted to speak to me. So 1 followed,
tittle thinking of wbat be bad to say,
expecting no more than some question
abont log or cargo, such ss tbe skipper
Is alwaya putting to bis officers*.
In tbe captain's cabin, bowever, 1
fonnd alttlng at the table not only Captain   Jaggard   himself,   but   my   old
friend snd patron, Captain  Crowle.
Hla Jolly face waa full of satisfaction
and good humor, so that It gave one
pleasure only to look at blm.   But he
sat upright and assumed tbe air of dignity which spoke of tbe quarter deck. A
man who haa walked tbat part of tbe
ship In command doth never lose tbe
look of authority.
"Jobn Pentecrosse." he began,"! bave
sent for you In order to Inform you
tbat on tbe recommendation o« Captain
Jaggard here"—Captain Jaggard gravely Inclined his bead In acquiescence—
"and wltb tbe consent of Miss Molly
Miller, sole proprietor of tbls good ship,
the Lady of Lynn, I bave promoted
yoa to tbe rank of chief offices."
-*8lrf" I cried, overwhelmed, for Indeed 1 had no reason to expect this
promotion for another two or three
years.  "What can I ssyr
"We don't want yon to say anything.
Jack, my lad." Tbe captain came
down from tbe quarter deck and became my old friend again. "Give me
yonr band. You're young, bnt there's
never a better sailor afloat, la there.
Captain Jaggard T
"None, Captain Crowle; none for his
"ror his years naturally. He's sslt
through and through, Isn't he. Captain
"And through. Captain Crowle." My
skipper waa a man or grave aspect and
few words.
"Well. then, let as drink the Isd's
health." And upon tbat tbe cabin boy.
who needed no further order, dived Into the locker, produced a bottle, opened
it and placed three glasses.
"No better Lisbon." said Captain
Jaggard, pouring it out "Goes even
to tbe table of the king, God bless
"Now, gentlemen"—Captain Crowle
poshed a glass to me-"urst a glass to
Miss Molly, my   little   maid.   Jack,
you've been ber playfellow, and you're
now her servant."
MI could ask nothing better, sir.**
"I know—a "-ood and zealous servant
Drink It off. a fall glass, running over,
to Molly Miller."
We obeyed, notblng loath.
"And now. Captain Jaggard, here's
tbe health of yoar new mate, long to
serve nnder yon, your right band, your
eyes open when you are off tbe deck,
yonr sailing master, the keeper of your
tog. Jsck Pentecrosse, 1 drink to your
good lock."
That was the event which msde this
dsy tbe happiest In my Ufe. Another
event of which I thought little at tbe
time waa more Important still tn tbe
after consequences. Tbls was tbe bu-
mlllatloD of sSamuel Semple.
In tbe evening os soon as I could get
ashore 1 repaired, as In duty bound, to
pay my respects to my young mistress.
Bbe was sitting In tbe summer bouee
with sqme needlework. Beside ber sat
ber good old black woman, Nigra.
"Jack I" Bhe dropped ber work and
Jumped op to meet me. "1 tbougbt you
would come thla evening. Ob, are you
pleased V
"Yoa knew I should come, Molly.
Why, bare I not to thank you for my
promotion f*
She gave me her hand with ber sweet
frankness and ber smiling face.
"I would mske yoa captain, Jack, but
asy guardian will not bear of It All in
■■rood time, though. I am only waiting.
I am proud of yon. Jack, because everybody speaka so well of you. I met
your father, thla morning and gave bim
tbe good news to rejoice bis good old
heart He was too proud to confess bla
Joy. But wo know him. don't we, Jackl
Well, I confess I shall not be happy till
you are Captain Pentecrosse, with a
share in every cargo.*"
"Nay, Molly, the ship la yours, and I
am but yoar servant though a proud
and Joyful servant"
And so we sat and talked, while Nigra went on witb her work, sitting st
the feet of her mistress, whom she
watched all tbe time as a dog keeps
one eye always upon bis master.
At this time my mistress was 10, a
time wben many girls are already mar
tied. But ahe was still a child, or a
young girl at heart being one of those
who, like a fine Orleans plum, ripen
slowly and are all the better for the
time they take. In person, if I may
speak of what should be sacred, sbe
was finely made, somewhat taller than
the average, ber hnlr of tbat fair color
which Is tbe chief glory ef tbe English maiden. If a Lisbon girl could
show tbat fair balr. with those blue
eyes snd that soft cheek touched wltb
ruddy hue and tbe velvet bloom of the
■September peach, sbe would draw after ber tbe wbole town, wltb tbe king
and his court snd even tbe grand Inquisitor and bla accursed crew of tor
She was of a truly affectionate dlspo
sltlon, her mind being aa lovely as ber
face. In manners sbe waa easy and
compliant in discourse sometimes
grave and sometimes merry. As for
her great possessions, sbe was so elm
pie In her tastes and habits, being ln
all respects like tbe daughter of a
plain merchantman's skipper, that she
understood little or notblng of wbat
these possessions meant or wbat tbey
might bestow upon ber.
No one. bowever. must believe tbat
there was any tbougbt or discourse con
cernlng love between us.   1 bad been
her companion and playfellow. I knew
ber very mind and could tell at any
time of what ahe was thinking.   Some
times ber thoughts were of blgb and
serious things.    Mostly tbey were of
tblngs simple, sucb as tbe prospects of
the last brew or tbe success of tbe
latest cordial.   Of suitors she had none,
although she was now, as I said, 16
yeara of age. There were no suitors.   1
very well know why, because, perhaps
for friendly reasons, Captain Crowle
had told me something of bis ambition
for bis ward.   She was too rlcb and
too good for tbe young men of Lynn
What would any of tbem do with sucb
an heiress?   She was too rich and too
good even for tbe gentlefolk of tbe
county, a hearty, rough, good natured
people who bunted and shot and feast
ed and drank.    Wbat would tbey do
with an heiress of wesltb beyond tbelr
highest hopes bad tbey any knowledge
of ber wealth?   But I believe tbat ibey
had none.   No one knew bow rlcb she
was except tbe captain.   Tbe girl waa.
Intended  by   her  guardian   for some
great man.   He knew not as yet bow
be should find tbls great man, but be
knew tbat tbere were very few, even
of tbe noble lords In the bouse of peers,
whose fortune or whose Income would
compare with thnt of bis ward—bis lit
tie maid.   And 1. wbo knew this ambition, knew also thnt I was trusted not
to betray confidence nor to disturb the
girl's mind by any talk of love.   Now,
tbe mind of a young maid piously disposed Ib like tbe surface of a calm sea,
wblcb looks up to tbe sky and reflects
tbe blue of  heaven,  undisturbed  till
Dan Cupid cornea along and agitates
tbe calm wltb the reflection of some
shepherd swain and ripples tbe surface
wltb new tbougbts which are allowed
by heaven, but belong not to any of Its
many mansions.
Therefore we talked of everything
except love.
The son went down as we sat talking. The aun went down, and tbe soft

was: "Well, sir, be didn't care much

Upon His Start In Life.
Authony Trollope'a start In life wns
unpromising. As be knew no languages, ancient or modern, be became
classical usher at a school tn Rrussels,
wltb-tho promise of a commission In
the Austrian army. Then be was suddenly transferred to a clerkship ln the
Loudon postoflice. He was disqualified
for the new position by general ignorance ond special Incapacity for tho
simplest arithmetic. A vague threat
that he must pass an examination was
forgotten before it was put into execution, and Trollope characteristically
takes occasion to denounce tbe system
of competitive examination by which
he would bnve beeu excluded. Meanwhile be was turned loose In London
and attempted to live like a gentleman
on £90 a year. The results are Indicated by a couple of anecdotes.
A money lender once advanced him
£4, for which, first and last, bo paid
£200. This person, be says, became so
much attached to blm ns to pay o dally
visit to his office and exhortjilm to be
punctual. "These visits wero very terrible snd can hardly bave been of service to me In tbe ofliee." This mild remark applies also to the visits from the
mother of a young woman In the country who bad fallen In love with him
and to whom he "lacked the pluck to
give a decided negative." Tbe mother
used to appear wltb a basket on her

Ho was hopelessly In debt and often

wheut cop ,s being greatly delayed
in    seeding owing to frequent snow
and rani storms, und the general expectation   I.    that   in the older sections    the acreage under wheat will
be deciettsed.     European crops still
continue   to promise well, and there
is    no   chance in the reports regarding thorn.   At the present the quantities    l.eing   shipped from Argentine
are   showing    lurgor than expected,
and    running somewhat larger than
la.,c    year.     Australian  and Indian
shipments are light, but from North
Amencii, Russia and the Danube they
are liberal, and the amount on passage    to   Europe    is very large and
shows    no    decrease   from   week to
week.     This    causes   the   European
trade to remain indifferent and they
are    working    in  a   hand to mouth
fashion, not anxious to buy ahead as
freely, as they would do if they were
sure of a scarcity in the future.
In the local market Manitoba wheat
has been steady, but not active.
Prices neither advance nor decline as
they do on the American markets,
and the exporters are not buying
freely by any means. The price of 1

been sold around 74»4 to 75c for spot
or May delivery. Tho spread between
1 northern and 2 northern has narrowed down to 2c or 2Vjc, there having been a demand for the lower
grade. Closing prices may be stated
as 751//: 1 northern and 73",4c 2 northern, and for I hard 78V2C, all in

A Story of a Woman who mado up
Her Mind That sho had suffered
long enough—The Means Employed
to Cure Her Have Cured Thousands
Rock Dale, C. B., May 8—(Special)
—Mrs. David Riley, of this village,
sufferer! for over eight years before
she found a curo.
She had Female Weakness of a very
aggravated form, causing her fearful
pains. Her back pained her something dreadful.
She could not lift anything and
was dizzy-headed all the time. After trying many medicines with no
good results, she was bsacoming altogether discouraged, so much so
that she thought sho would have to
give up
No wonder that she felt like giving
up I Every woman who has suffered
in this way will understand how low
spirited and brokea a woman feels
when called upon to endure these cx-
trenissly distressing symptoms.
But Mrs. Riley didn't give up A
friend advised her to try Dodd's Kidney Pills, and she begun the tii'at-
ment of this medicine.
After using four boxes she was
much better. She felt a great deal
stronger, the dizziness had gone.
Thc pains in her back had disappeared, and she kept on using the pills.
She says :
"If it had not been for Dodd's Kidney Pills I would have had to give
up. They are certainly a wonderful
medicine and have done more fsir me
and my sickness than all the other
other medicines I ever took.
I can and will highly recommend
Dodd's Kidney Pills to all weak women who suffer as I suffered."
No woman need suffer a moment
longer. Dodd's Kidney Pills have
curesl and are curing thousands of
weak women.
Many of your sisters have told
their story for publication and very
many have testified but not for publication. All join in praising tho
remedy that has done more for the
suffering womanhood of Canada than
all other means combined.
Dodd's Kidney Pills are Weak Woman's Dost Friend.

are most lavish of their own life
are tho ones into whose lap the

Thousands of hearts are starving today simply because they are stingy.
'I hey have withheld themselves, and
in the withholding have grown lean
and poor. The fat and prosperous
soul is the ona whtch Is liberal with
itself, which offers itself as food
and strength to every needy man and

Not they who seek to get—to gather to themselves the world's best
things, and thus find satisfaction —
but they who bountifully offer themselves in sympathy and service to

How shall young men and young
women secure greatest success ?
Simply by offering themselves on
the altar of the world's every-day

Sir Algcron West tells this story
in his "Recollections." One day
the late Sir George Campbell, wbo
had a very strident, loud, rasping
voice, called ou Sir Algeron, who
was then secretary to Mr. Gladstone, to talk over the land question.
After he had been in conversation
about three minutes the office keeper
appeared, bearing the card of on
11.1'., who, he said, was very anxious to seo Sir Algeron. The latter
said he waa sorry to be engaged. In
another minute he appeared with the
card of a. well-known peer who was
most desirous to have a word with
him. Again the latter said be was
too busy to see him Just then. In
another minuto the man again came
in with a hugo card saying the lord
mayor and sheriffs of London wanted to speak to Sir Algeron "West
very urgently in the next room.
Sir Algoron apologized to Sir
George and went out to such great
dignitaries. When he got out of the
room tho office koeper startled him
by saying, "Thore ain't nobody here,
sir, but I was afraid a madman had
been shown in to you by mistake,
and I wan'-cd to warn vott. air."

It is beyond the kea of mortal man
.ie correctly size np the political jackpot at Victoria, and well nigh impossible to extract the smallest degree
,ot intelligence from-tho-movements
of the gymnastic legislators.    Tbe
government's railway policy seems
to have brought to the front all tbe
.coarser grafting instincts of the various members,  whose   votes were
openly influenced by weighty sub*
sidlesto each wildcat railroad scheme.
'Supporters of government and oppo (8U8 horse8 in the vicinity
sltion alike are exhibiting the worst
features of baser politics, the main
actuating idea being a general scramble for the provincial exchequer.   It
.can no longer be aaid that Dunsmuir,
Martin, or anyone else controls the
house, as personal greed appears to
hays   supplanted   honest  purpose.
Party politics, even of the Wast Elgin type, could not equal the present
^disgraceful   spectacle   at Victoria.
/Tarn the rascals out.
In returns recently brought down
,in the legislature, there was shown
.-to bo taxes due the government on
wild land, townsite holdings, etc.,
of half a million dollars.' Speculators
and grafters all over the province-
and B.C. is a hotbed for breeding the
adventurers—have not   paid  their
indebtedness, yet the government has
made no move in tho past to enforee
collection.   Of late thc government
officials have been prying into thc
jatistorr of realty in this section, and
scarcely a holder of land has missed
receiving a notification of taxes dating back, (h many instances, to 1891.
Individual holders have now to pay
ihe debts rightfully chargeable  to
scheming companies, but they have
no other alternative in order to clear
-their titles.   It  is a gross injustice
and proves conclusively that private
.interests have no security as against
tbe company and speculator graft.
Things can bo no different till the
pascals are all rooted out at Victoria.
