Total Value of Lands and Improvements
In th. City Placed at •175,848—Sidewalk Committee Reports Progress—
Cemetery Too Close to Town.
Mayor York, Aid. Worden, Smith,
Nichol and Bradshaw were present
at the regular meeting of the city
council cm Mondav evening.
An account for $15 was presented
by D. D. Robertson for the burial of
the late Edward Brown. The government had refused to do anything
with the account, so the mayor said
it remained for the city to pay it.
Referred to the finance committee.
The sidewalk committee reported
that the lumber had been ordered
for the new walks and the work
wonld begin at once. Tools could be
borrowed from the government agent
for the time being.
Fred C rlisle and about-80 others
petitioned to have the tax on wash-
houses abolished, as it wns working
a hardship on two poor women, and
asking to have outside laundries doing business here taxed instead.
Mayor York stated the council in
passing the license bylaw bad no intention of working a hardship on
anyone, but the city must hare laws.
It was necessary to protect the city
against thc invasion of Asiatic wash-
houses. In this the aldermen concurred, and outside laundries doing
business here will have to pay a
license. Matter left over for one week
for further information.
The clerk returned his assessment
roll complete, showing the land val
ues to be $110,093, improvement!-'
$59,750, making a total of $175,848.
The result of the assessment surprised and gratilied the aldermen. The
mayor was a believer in full valuation of property and a low tax rate.
J. M. McGregor submitted an offer
of $5 for establishing a grade for
Main street. Offer accepted, on motion of Aid. Bradshaw and Worden.
Uugarding the cemetery question,
Mayor York said lie had been at Nelson and interviewed Frank Fletcher.
The latter thought the cemetery was
too close to the city and thought land
should be chosen farther out. He was
quite willing, however, to donate a
plot of land, any place, at the choice
of the city.
With regard to thecxtonsion of the
Brandon waterworks, Mr. Fletcher
saw no danger in granting the privilege, as the city could protect itsel f
by agreement with the parties desiring water. The city would obtain
possession of the pipes when a proper
civic system is installed. Mayor
York advised the question again being laid over a week, so as to notify
the parties interested.
The clerk was authorized, on motion of Aid. Worden and Nichol, to
insert a notice in The Drill relative
to applications to go on the voters'
list. All intending voters must have
their applications in by Nov. 7.
Council adjourned.
Following is a pretty accurate list

its regular quota of 240 tons, making
a total of 4388 tons for the year to
dale. The Enterprise is holding back
preparatory to the starting of the
concentrator. Unavoidable delays
have occurred atthe mill, preventing
the commencement of operations, but
the management expect to have
things running regularly before tho
end of the month. They expect then
to make heavy shipments. It has
shipped 540 ton's this year.

"I may be mistaken, of course, an so

Pap gave a contemptuous sniff and
Indulged ln a little Incredulous laugh.

he remarked, "an mebby you have said

If you thinks they are true words mebby you can go {udder an say wbat that

them very words. But "what of lt?
Strictly speakln, 'damn' ain't no cues

Jim Thorn, who bad remained silent
all this time, suddenly broke Into the
conversation by remarking wltb tbe
air of one who haa convictions and
who la positive of their correctness:
"You all have bad yonr say about
that man, an now it's time I was bavin mine. Some of you have reckoned
one thing an some of you have reckoned another, but none of you ain't
reckoned right I know what that feller Is, an I stand ready to bet a hose

"What are the word you 'lows to

There was a moment of breathless
alienee while the people looked from
one -to another, and nobody noticed
, that one of tbe company colored and
after shooting a contemptuous glance
at Jim Thorn turned her face away.
That one person was Louise, tin* young*

with a smile, "but we un* reckoned you

These were all merely surmises on
the part of the speakers, for none of
them knew a thing on earth about
James Melvln. It Is strange, however,
how near to the truth a mere surmlsa
may sometimes draw. That James
Melvln was a fugitive from the law
was a fact and that some of tbe other
surmises smacked strongly of tbe truth
were also facts.
All at once at this point the attention
of the villagers was drawn away from
James Melvln and fixed on another
subject Mrs. Sparks had come dashing In among them, ber face pale and
haggard a_d her eyes wet with tears.
"Whar's my old man?" she cried.
"Whar's Ebenezer? Hain't none of
you uns seed nothlu of bim? Oh, my
Not until this moment bad any one
noticed that Ebenezer Sparks was absent and consequently nobody was lu
a position to enlighten bis other hah*
as to his whereabouts. Mrs. Sparks
looked eagerly from face to face, tben
broke forth In heartrending lamentations.
"Oh, my poor, brave, foolhardy Ebenezer!" she walled. "I'll never git to
see h'lm no more, never In all this
world! He'll be killed! He's shore to
be killed!   I Jest know be will!"
"Why, great granny, Mrs. Sparks,"
Hicks exssclaimed, "whatever has got
Into you to make you talk that a-way'•
Wbo or what Is goln to kill Ebenezer,
do you s'pose?"
"Oh. my Lord, Jake, tbe war'll kill
him! It's Jest shore to, an I won't nev-
or git to lay my eyes on him ag'ln."
"Why, land of Goshen, Mrs. Sparks,
how do you go 'bout flggerln that out:
How's the war gwlne to kill Ebenezer
when he ain't got nothln to do with it
I'd like to know?"
"But he'a a-goln to have somethln to
do with It. Don't you all know tbat
them cannons an tbem guns has done
sot blm plumb crazy an made him so
wild to fight that he's jest put out over
thar to Jlne the war?"
Some of tbe little group laughed outright, while some of them only smiled.
Hicks did neither, although he was
strongly tempted to laugh. He saw
that Mrs. Sparks was Intensely in earnest aud sorely troubled, and be pitied
ber. Everybody knew Ebenezer Sparks
wag a braggart and a coward—every
body except his wife, tbe one person
who sliould have known It better than
any one else on earth.
The blind, unreasoning faith some
wives repose In their husbands would
be ridiculous were lt not so pathetic,
and Mrs. Sparks was of that class.
"I guess you ain't got no call to be
skeered about Ebenezer, Mrs. Sparks,"
Hicks remarked presently. "You can
Jest bet be ain't gone to jlne no war
au that he'll turn up here tbe fust
thing you know."
The woman shook ber head.
"You can't fool me," ahe replied.
"You uns all don't know Ebenezer like
I do. If you uns bad ever beard blm
talk as I bave, a-tcllln about the times
wben he fit into the war an whupped
tbe battles, you uns would know wbar
he is now. Time an ag'ln I've heard
blm a-slgbln an a-bopln for a war to
git started, so's be could git a cbanst
to jlne It an fight like he uster. He
was shy, an he wouldn't tell you all
them things, but ho told 'em to me."
Even Hicks smiled at this. He could
not help It when he remembered how
often Ebenezer, sitting by the store
stove of winter evenings, had boasted
of his brave exploits tn war and yearned, as a sick child yearns for Its mother, for a chance to repeat them. Ebon-
ezer's modesty, liko his bravery, waa a
mere matter of assumption.
Just at tbat moment a boy came running down tbe street In a high state of
excitement, and, stopping In front of
the group, panted out:
"You all better come an git Ebenezer Sparks outen the store cellar, 'cause
if he stays thar much longer he'll be
deader 'an a mackerel He's most
played out now, I guess."
Tbere wss a moment's silence; tben
severs! of the men broke Into a loud
laugh.   Presently Ulcka turned to the
boy and said:
"Is Ebenezer In my store cellar?"
"You bet be Is," tbe boy replied, "a*
he can't git out nuther, 'leas'n he's
helped out"
"What's happened to him?"
"Why, he's all burled up under you
all's taters.   They's moat a thousand
bushels on top of him.*"

said, with a chuckle. "Why, lt'd jest

Then everybody laughed—everybody
except Sparks and Banka and their
wives. The two first hung their beads
ln sbame, Mra. Sparks bristled up In
ber husband's defense, while Mrs.
Banks gave her husband a look full of
disgust and coolly turned ber back on
Mrs. Mann noticed the conduct ot
Mrs. Banks and promptly called attention to it by saying:
"Lord, Loueesy, you ain't nigh so
quick to stand up for your husband as
Betty Sparks Is for lier'n. You acts for

ashamed of Sim."
'•'I am," Mrs. Banks replied flatly.
"Who could help being ashamed of a
coward, I'd like to know?"
Sim looked up at his wife, a pained
expression ln his eyes and his face very
"Loueesy," he gasped, "yon dast to
talk that a-way about me an we una

"1 dare to speak the truth," Mrs.
Banks replied cuttingly, her lips curling with scorn. "I'm plumb-ashamed
of you."
"Tben you don't love me none," 81m
whimpered broken heartedly. "A wife

"I guess, Blm Banks, Loueesy's been

Sim's eyes flashed fire In an Instant,
and, trembling with anger, be cried:

Mrs. Mann sniffed contemptuously.

Who'a who in the royal party, now
touring in Canada?
Ot the Duke and Duchess Canadians
aro well informed, but it would not
be out of place to give him his oili-
cial  title.     Here is how it goes:
"His Royal Highness I'rince
George, Frederic Ernest Albert, Duke
of Cornwall and York, Duke of
Rothesay, Prince of Saxo-Coburg

And here follow a half a dozen
jumbled alphabets.
The Duke is England's royal sailor, and he has all tlie bronze ot a
man who faces wind and1 woalher on
sea. He is fair, and bronzes as a
fair man does—a ruddy hue. lie is
browned to the eyebrows, and his
hands and wrists show thc effects of
exposure. He is a light-boned follow of just above average height.
He has small feet and hands, and
moves with a wiry, springy stride of
excellent health. He is not a powerful man, but ho is agile and graceful. Hia Royal Highness would
probably tip the scales at 150
The Duchess resembles tho Duke in
build, complexion, and carriage.
They are nearly of a height, about
fivo feet eight inches, but the Duchess is the more composed of the two
in public. During the reading of a
recent address. His Royul Highness
fldgetted continually with his hands.
First the gray-glovod extremities
were clasped across tho body, and
then he shifted one bohind his buck
and clenched the other or touched
back a hair he imagined astray on
his forehead. When his hands had
settled down he became uneasy on
his feet and shifted from one foot to
the other.

The latest snapshot of Earl    Roberts shows him in novel guise. It   it
only very recently (lint the Cominun-
dcv-iu-Chi'if  has  purchased  tho      bi*
gray suede gloves. His only jewelry
beyond a carven finger ring was a
diamond scarf pin. The Duchess
also appeared entirely in black. The
flash of brilliant diamonds in watch-
chain and corsage broach and her
snappy eyes alone relieved tho monotony of the sombro mourning color.
The most important figure in tho
household of the Duke is Lady Mury
Lygon, one of the Duchess' oldest
friends, and her lady-in-waiting ever
since sho was married. Lady Lygon
is a sister of Earl Beauchump, one
of England's most prominent peers,
who waa at one time Mayor of Worcester. Madrcsfleld Court, Malvern
Link, the Beauchump country scat,
is the finest resilience in Worcestershire. Lady Lygon is the most
graceful dancer in the whole entourage. She is 32 years of age, tho
eldest of two sisters, one of whom is
married to Lord Ampthill, the private secretary of Joseph Chamberlain, while the other is the spouse of
a Grenadier Guardsman. Capt. Lord
Gordon-Gilmour. But Lady Lygon,
despite her years, requires chnper-
onage. Lady Cathorino Grey-Coke,
her duenna, is the eldest lady in the
party. She is a daughter of the
Earl of Wilton and thc wife of a
son of the Earl of Leicester. She is
a granddaughter of tho Earl of Derby, and waa lady-in-waiting to tho
Duchess of Teck. One of Lady
Coke's daughters, the wife of a
Scots Guard Lieutenant-Colonel, Is
accounted the best amateur actress
in all England, and this talent is
hereditary, for Lady Coke is an accomplished actress herself.
Tho position of lion. Mrs. Derek
Keppel is a peculiar one. Her bus-
band objected to leaving her for
seven and a half months, and so she
waa included In tho party. She is
affectionately called the supernumerary of the party. On England's
shores remained tho hope of the Keppel household, a baby. The Hon.
Mra. Keppel Was Hon. Bridget Har-

Three hundred and sixty-six pure,
flawless diamonds, a large Canadian
pearl of rare beauty, set in a corsage brooch of Canadian gold licutcn
and enamelled Into a perfect counterpart of a spray of Canadian maple
leaves, was tlio gift of the ladies of
Montreal to the Duchess of York.
Thc ornament is a marvel of the
Jeweler's art. The sprny of six
maple leaves mensures almost four
and a half inches in length. No two
leaves are alike in size or shape. All
havo been designed nnd enamelled
directly from nature, nnd nre ns perfect Imitations of Canada's national
emblem i* tha most highly skilled
workmanship could produce. Around
tho edge of each leaf between fifty
and sixty dinmonsls nre' embedded in
tho gold, while in ouch case thc junction of leaf and branch is formed of
a diamond larger and moro beautiful
than tho others. Every stone has
been specially selected and cut. The
pearl, which is set nt tho start of
thc spray, weighs about 20 grains.
and is perhaps the most perfect Canadian pearl that has ever found its
way into a brooch, lt was found
in the Lake St. John district of
Quebec, where some fine jewels from
time to timo reward tho tireless
searches. The brooch reposed in »
handsome chest of solid silver nearly eight inches snuaro. Upon its li'
was enrved a wreath of maple loaves
encircling tho arms of Montreal. A
suitable inscription is engraved upon
another part of the chest. With the
exception of tho diamonds, which
have not yet been found In Canada.
ln any abundance, everything connected with tho gift is purely Canadian.

Tho Rich, He*i Blood Made by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills Gives New
Strength to Every Nerve, Fibre
and Organ of the Body.
From The Budget, Shelburne, N.8.
Among tho young laidiea of Shelburne, there is none today who moro
fully bears the impress of perfect
health than Miss Lilian Durfoe. Unfortunately this was not always tho
case, as a few years ago Miss Dur-
fce became ill, and her friends feared
that she was going into decline. A
doctor was called in and prescribed
but his mcdicineB did not have the
desired effect. Her strength gradually left her, her appetite failed, she
had frequent headaches, was very
pale, and finally grew so weak that
a walk of a few rods would coair
plelely fatigue her. The young
lady's family sorrowfully observed
that she was steadily failing, and
feared that consumption would claim
her as a victim. One day a friond
urged that she should give Dr. Williams' I'ink 1'ills a tria.1, but the
Idea at first was not favorably entertained ; it seemed hopeless to expect that any medicine would help
her after the doctor's treatment had
failed. However, this good friend
still urged, and finally prevailed.
By tho timo the third box was used,
there was an unmistakable improve-:
ment in Miss Durfee's condition.
Cheered by this, tho pills were continued, anh in the course of a few
weeks the former invalid, whose
Strength was taxed by thc slightest
exertion, was almost restored to
health. Tho use of the pills was
still continued and a few weeks more
found Miss Durfce again enjoying
perleet health.
To a reporter who Interviewed h<*r,
she said :—"1 believe lhat Dr. Williams' Pink rills savi-d my life, and
1 earnestly recommend thoin to all
who fear that consumption has laid
its grasp upon them."
That the facts related abovj are
not in uny way exaggerated, is
borne out by the following slntcmcni
from Hobt. G. Irwin, Esq., the well
known stipendiary magistrate for the
municipality, who says:—"I distinctly remember the pale face of Miss
Lillian Durfeo and the regr-sts of
friends as they expri'BSsxl their conviction that she would soon bo compelled to say farewell to earth. Miss
Durfoe, however, carries the unmistakable credentials of good health,
and frequently expresses her indebtedness to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
Pale and anaemic girls, or young
people with consumptive tendencies,
will find renewed Dealt— and bodily
vigor through tho use of Dr. Williams' I'ink Pills. These pills are
an unfailing cure for all diseases duo
to a watery condition of the blood,
or shattered nerves. Sold bv all

as the author of "David Harum," possessed a rich baritone voice nnd at one
time sang ln a choir nt Syracuse. He
was fond of tclliuB of an occasion on
which he was invited to sing nt n concert iu one of the smaller towns of western New York. Tlie muslcnl affair passed off satisfactorily with the help of the
neighboring talent, assisted by Mr. West-
cott'g rare voice.
As Mr. Westcott was nbout to #tlre
his host eame timidly to hla room, carrying two fronR paper boxes. "I leavo the
house ao early in the morning to go to
my factory." the man explained, "thnt
I'm afraid I may not set you, but I want
to give you something for your singing
tonight. Now, here's two pairs of the
very best whnlcboncd corsets that our
factory turns out, and I want you to
take them home with you."
Westcott used to odd that he was so
surprised and amused that he could find
no words qt protest, and so accepted and
took them home.

The most common form of putting a
man to death in China is taking off the
head by the sword, and the extraordinary
nerve of the Chinese is shown ln this
way moro than any other. I have seen
two men beheaded, one placed b«f.."« the
other. It took three strokes of the
aword *» kill the first, and while the
operation was going on the second knelt
down with his neck outstretched waiting
his turn. Thinking that the process was
slow, he turned to the executioner nnd
asked if be were going to be much longer
with the first. Then, when the executioner came to him, be stretched his neck
snd waited for the blow, which completely severed bis head from his body.

Interviewed by the Representative of

as Related by Herself—Her Opinion of Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Plattsrville, Ont., Oct. 21.—..Special)—Tbe case of Mrs. J. Barnett of
this town was found of suflicient importance to be published at length in
the PlattBvilla Echo. To the representative of that live local paper eho
made tho following statement concerning her experience with Dodd's
Kidney Pills.
"I have been ailing for years, but
in the spring of lost year I grew
very much worse. The symptoms of
my disease were nervousness, rhoum-
tism in thc left arm, pains in the
small of the buck, up the spinal column and back of the head, through
the eyes, left side of tho body aud
occasionally the right side.
"I grew weak, for I had no appetite and night after night I could
not sleep. I was a physical wreck.
I was treated by doctors, but their
medicines afforded me no relief. I
chanced to read in Dodd's Almanac
of the virtue in Dodd'a Kidney Pills
and the wonderful cures effected by
"The symptoms as therein explained corresponded with my own, and I
started taking Dodd's Kidne./ 1'ills
according to directions. Before I
had finished one box there was a decided improvement in my condition.
Sly apps'tite returned, the p.iiu was
lessened and I was able to sleep. 1
have taken in all twelve boxes and
havo completely recovered. No sign
of my old trouble remains, uud I ascribe lt only to Dodd's Kidney Pills.

ofthe practice of using dvnamite

decent string. In the destruction of
the fish, there is being destroyed one
of the leading attractions for tourists
. to these parts.   Pity men wouldn't
'see things in tbat light and give the
lovers of the rod a little enjoyment.
'Using dynamite on fish is a reprehensible practice and should be suppressed    ___________
Dr. Forin last week received the
following letter from W. L. Mackenzie. King, deputy minister of labor:—
"1 dejire to acknowledge a telegram
from you, dated Slocan City. B C, 16th
October, addressed to the Hon. Minister
of Justice, and transferred today to this
department, which reads  as   follows:
, 'Liberals assembled humbly petition government to enforce Alien Labor Act at
- Rossland.'   In reply to tiiis 1 beg to say
that the Attorney General is of the opinion tbat, as a precedent to his ordering
.' the deportation of any alien, under the
' Alien Labor Act aa amended at the last
session and at present iu force, there
ahould be a conviction establishing tbat
* such alien was imported in violation of
, the provisions of the Act.   1 enclose a
copy of a consolidation of the Acts to re-
' strict the importation and employment
of aliens, from section 3, of which you
" will see tiiat provision is made for the
enforcement of the Act by  interested
parties.   In regard to the alleged viola-
. tion at Rossland. I may state that this
' department bas had for some time past
* special  oflicer in Rossland, in order
' that, in the event of convictions being
obtained in accordance with the provis-
" ions of the Act, no avoidable delay may
be experienced in having the persons,
concerning whom convictions were made
. speedily deported."
' The government explains its position
by the fact that the Alien Act was
amended last session, at the instance
of Ralph Smith, by which the initial
movement in securing deportation of
'Imported aliens was taken out of its
bands.   There being no convictions
' made at Roseland, the government
| contends it had no authority under
'the Act to deport.
Yale-Caribsjo has a population, ac-
„cording to the almost completed census returns, of 51.C04, against 19,180
ten years ago.   In importance and
wealth the constituency has gained
in an even larger proportion.   Were
justice meted out, the district em
'braced would receive at least one
mora member for the commons, one
•for the senate, and half a dozen for
vthe legislature.   The facts are plain
.and they constitute an urgent demand upon, the respective governments to give the district, and particularly the Kootenays, a fair share
,of representation under redistribution.   As it stands, the north riding
of East Kootenay contains 1938 people  and the south 6962.   In West
Kootenay the Revelstoke riding haa
.3008 inhabitants, Slocan 5321, Nelson
'7102, and Rossland 7603.   These figures warrant   any way four more
members for West Kootenay and one
for  East Kootenay    By reason of
their numbers and by holding fust
together,   the   Kootenay   members
in the legislature could initiate and
further legislation favorable to the
chief industry of the province—mining.   Great as has boon the advance
ment in the decade Just closed, the
current period  will   witness  even
greater progress for the Kootenays,
and it is necessary that sufficient representation be given them to protect
their valuable and expanding interests.
