As yet there is little, if any, talk of
the municipal elections in January,
and it looks as if there would lie some
difficulty in lilling the aldermanic
board for tin; ensuing year. In respect
to the contest it may lie said that there
wen* a number of Important changes
made in the election laws at the last
session of the legislature, among them
being the following:—
Nominations for the offices of mayor
and aldermen take place on the 2nd
Monday in January, between the
hours from 12 to 2, and polling on the
Thursday following.
A radical departure is made in connection with naming the hours in
which the polling shall take place.
Under the old act the polling booths
were open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Under the amended act, this has been
changed to read from 9 a.m. to 7 ..SO p.
m. The keeping of th'' poll open to
the evening hour named is done with
the object of making it convenient for
workingmen to vote.
Another important new amendment
is that all electors must be British
subjects. Under the old act all who
paid licenses,foreigners includ.'d.could
vote, as could also foreign property
In respect to property owners, it
order to qualify.   Under th
10 joint owners could vote.
Again, license holders and house
holders must make a declaration that
thev have been a continuous resident
of thc municipality for one year, and
tied thev arc British subjects.
Thc '•one man, one vote." principle
is aimed at under the new law. There
will !>' no more voting by one person
in two or more wards.    Electors must

Press despatches announce that
Canada is to have a second transcontinental road, extending from ocean to
ocean. This announcement was made
by Charles M. Hayes, second vice
president and general manager of the
Grand Trunk.
The Grand Trunk will be behind
the new road and will operate it, but.
as in'the case of the Grand Trunk
lines west of the Detroit river, it will
be constructed under a separate corporate name, the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railroad company.
The new line, according to Mr.
Have's statement, will have a mileage
of about 8<HX) miles, and the construction, including equipment, stations,
bridges, ships and other facilities, will
involve an expenditure of from $75,-
000,000 to SHJO.tKKl.tJOO.
According to the present arrange*
ment,the new system will run through
that portion of northern Ontario
known as New Ontario, starting from
North Hay or Gravenhurst. Ontario,
and extending through Manitoba, the
Northwest Territories and Hritish
Columbia to Bute Inlet or Port Simpson, as may later Ik- determined ou.
The line will be one of the most
modern and up to date,having in view
especially low grades, long tangents,
steel bridges and heavy rails, as well
as ample station facilities and equipment for the hauling of freight and
passenger traffic,
•"No oue," says Mr.Hayes, "who has
been studying the wonderful developments that have taken place in the
northwest in the last few years can
fail to lx' impressed with the growth
of that extensive and rich territory,
and our directors feel that, in view of
the apparent need of additional rail-
s.a.s nullities, ami ia order to guarantee to the present Grand Trunk system direct connection with that important and growing section of Canada, the only wise policy is to take active sts-ps towards this extension."
The building of this transcontinental
route has been under consideration by
lhe Grand Trunk directorate for sotus*
time, but it was only during Mr.
Hayes' recent visit to England thnt it
has decided to carry out the project
at as early a date ns possible.

Shingle Mill Osaatructlon.
During the week considerable progress has been made with the initial
stages in connection with the construction of the shingle department of the
big sawmill plant. Frank Provost had
a gang of men up  Evans creek last
week cutting the piles for the foundation of the mill a ml these have since
been brought down and hauled into
place. Men have been clearing off
tin'millsite this week, cutting down
the trees and brush antl leveling the
ground. On Tuesday evening the C.
IM". sent over their pile driver from
Nakusp, for the use of the mill people.
More men are to Ik- employed in the
driving of the piles and it will not be
long till the framers and carpenters
gs't their turn. The laborers are lie-
ing paid at the rate of $.'i a day, so
there is nothing Chinese about that.
By tin- plans drawn up, it is the in -
tention of the oompany to haul the
logs from the lake into the mill and
there butt them into bolts for the
shingle machines, instead of doing it
In the bush. The power will be supplied by two boilers and a heavy engine, the mill supplying its own fuel.
The sawmill will DO erected close over
to the bluff, having  wings added for
the lath anil planing departments,  A
separate battery of lioilers and engine
will lie installed for that plant. Midway between the two plants will lie
erected a hugs' burner, for destroying
the refuse material.conveyors running
from each mill. All the works are to
be equipped with modern and expensive machinery. By spring the company will have several million feet of
logs cut on their Wilson creek limits,
the work already Ining pretty well un
der way.     _^^
City Outi is "sviissifitii.
Mayor York, on Tuesday, received
a very welcome letter from (lovern-
tnent Agent Chipman, at Kaslo. It
was in effect that the delinquent taxes
on this townsite had been paid iu antl
that thc refund due the city was made
up. Mr. Chipman advised the council to apply to I he government lit ouee
for the money, which has lieen ilone.
The refund amounts to Si98.76, lieing

None of the larger mines figure in
the shipping lint for the week, owing
to the impassable roads. The solo
output for the division is embraced in
the nine tons sent to the Nelson smelter by the Hampton. Snow has fallen
lately, enabling the Arlington to start
out its ore and it will resume shipments next week. The Ottawa will
also be in it shortly.
For l.HXJ the exports from this division amounted ts> 2847 tons, made up
from ten properties. Last year the
exports totalled sS629 tons, from fourteen properties. Following is a full
list of the lspcal shipments this year to
Fourth of July.

The Black I'rince has been rawhid-
ing some ore down to the Arlington
basin for shipment, so keeping the
trail in ^ond shape.
A number of men have been laid off
nt the Arlington, the outside work
having lx>eii all cleaned up. The
stoppage of shipments hns also had
its effect.
Tom Waring and the Tatte-rsall
Ixivs commence work next week on
the Myrtle group, at the heiid of
'Twelve Mile. They will put in the
winter on the hill.'
Work ceased on the Legal on Saturday and nothing more will lie done
until next spring. About 3T> feet of
drifting has beeu done on the oro
body since lieing tapped in the lower
tunnel. There was no diminution in
its width anil richness.
Hampton Ore Itiina High,
During the week N. F. McNaught
shipped nine tons of ore from tho
Hampton to the Nelson smelter and
the returns received were phenomenally high, a portion of the ore lieing
about the richest stuff ever handled in
the province. The No. 1 ore was made
up of lit) sacks, containing a little over
a ton, and gave returns of 1DS3 oz of
silver, lieing somewhat higher than
the local samplings. This is a valuation of $900 a ton, even at the present
low price of silver. The balance of
the shipment, of No. 2 grade, yielded
fitifi oz silver. Last year the three
shipments sent out averaged 7(KI oz a
ton.but this season's average is higher.
The ore is a sulphide and is uniformly rich, picked samples going as high
as l'.OtK) oz. The ore shipped was
taken out during development.
Cut I.imIkss in Meteor Tunnel.
At the latter end of last week the
lessees of tin* Meteor tapped the ledge
iu their crosscut tunnel, and opened
up the paystreak. Owing to the turn
of the fault.they were a month longer
getting the ledge than thev expected.
The ore is of the same high character
as that met with elsewhere on the property. Every effort will now lie put
to stoping out the ore, so as to get a
shipment down next month. The
lessees have live tons on the dump and
it will not take long to till out the car.
Some three tons of ors* taken out by
the owners on a previous invasion will
probably lx* shipped in the first car
wilh the lessees' ore.
On Sunday evening Huv. William
Simons, pastor of Knox church, will

A Novel by Annie Thompson.
"Well, well," he said, "gang your
ain ge.lt, lad. It is of no use for me
to interfere. Vou know my opinion of
those who make hustc to get rich,
I sometimes wonder what is the use
of onr experience; it comes too late
to Lo of much service to ourselves; it
is bought dearly enough, cod knows;
unci when we oiler it, young folks
Hunk nothing of it. Thoy prefer to
burn the.r own lingers and break
their own hs'arts. rather than trust
lo what we tell them."
"But this is nut a case of heart
breaking, I hope, sir," said John, in
u conciliatory tone. "I suppose, when
sou left Dalnock to come to Feldros-
Ml, ihu increased stipend had some
attractions, even for you. You know
1 should never have made more than
i'litlO a .-.ear in I'ergusson's office, and
sse what  my income is now."
"I wonder you troubled to come
buck to i.s." remarked the old man,
testily. He had prognosticated much
evil as the r.sult of John's departure
from .Scotland, end it Was a little
aggravating t'.at not ono circumstance had occurred of which he could
say, -,r] hia ia just what X told you
would happen," John leaned forward
and laid  his hand on the minister's.
"Sir, 1 have come back for a wife."
Every shade of ill humor, vanished
li s antly from Mr, l*"erris' counten-
iiti t, his interest in l„\„ affairs was
as kten now us it hud ever been.
"liiglit, lud, right," ho said. "It is
time you were settled; all young poo-
ple sliould marry, Why did you not
think ot it before?"
"I have thought of it for years. I
had it in view when I went out to
"slelbis.it no, but 1 could not do more
than think of it until I was independent. If I had had a wife to support, 1 could have risked nothing,
uiy hands would have been tied; as lt
was, I risked a gootl deal. 1 stand
now on firm ground, but there were
three or four years of uncertainty.
Vou .know who I have come home
fur, Mr. Ferris?"
"Ves, lad, I suppose so: I must
mako up my mind to do without her.
I am sharp-sighted in these matters,
.Itshn. 1 thought I saw something of
this before you went away, and today, when you two came together. I
guessed how it would end. You
might search the wide world through
and you would not lind a nobler girl
than Blm is."
"I know that. I know that," as-
sentwl the lover.
'Tleur hensled, quick witted, with
tact, good sense, cleverness — she Is
the \ery wife for you; I shall begin
t.i have some confidence in your judgment ugain. I declare I don't know
anything that she cannot do. She
tonnages my affairs anil those of the
parish, and tliey never were so well
managed before, It is moro than you
deserve that some one has not carried
her off while you huve been away
drudging for wealth."
John started, "llo you think there
is uny one else that she cares for,
"No, no, lud. It is more than you
deserve, but I believe she loves you;
I have niy eyes open, and I can put
two and two together. I hnd sonner
see her married to you than to any
other man, but I shall miss her sadly."
"Not for long. sir. Kate is very
capable, is he not? It will take
time, but still I am sure she will do
her very best to lill Mary's place."
"Mary's placet"
"Of course you think no one can
fill it; yet, in time. Kate may learn
to do some of Mary's work."
"Mary's work!"
A long ivory paper knife which Mr.
Ferris held, slid through his lingers
on to the ground He stooped to pick
it up, nntl John thought it was this
exertion that Caused the olsl man to
Hush so. and look so disturbed.
"John, for whom have you come

"Kor Mary, for Mary! Oli lad, you
aro making a mistake, you should
have come for Kate
"My dear sir. I never thought of
Kate, nor she ot nie.     lt    has    been
Mnry, always.
Ihere was u prolonged pause. At
length John spoke, prompted by a
sudden fear.
"Vou do not know of any hindrance there, Sir? Alice knew what
I wanted; she promised to look after
my interests, she told me of no
"No, 1 think not; I really don't
know. These cousins of hers take up
much of her tune, she is often away
from us. I never thought about it,
she seems such u child, to me. I,ad,
let me speak to you without reserve;
1 have been a faithful friend to you
uml to your father before jou, 1 have
a right  to s|ieuk."
"Indeed iou have, sir; Buy what
you will."
Hut it wus some time before Mr.
Kcrris found words, lie was terribly
disconcerted by this complete subversion of his Ideas.
"John," he suid ut length, "I Implore you not to be in too great a
hurry about this. Take time, take
tftne to think it over seriously. Mury
is very beautiful, I never knew any
one with a character more transparent mist pure than hers; but she is
child-like — she will never be anything else. Vou will want more from
your  wife  than  shs*  Could  give  you;
she will bo   unhappy    if she cannot
Satisfy vou. She is not fitted to buttle with adversity — you could not
shure vour troubles with her; she is
v.ry sensitive -— a harsh word would
srush her. she s uot clever — you
COUld not lenn on her judgment, or
have much Intellectual companion-
ship with ber. Do not suppose for a
moment that i undor-rate her. I love
the girl dearly. I know her thoroughly; I think 1 know you thoroughly, too." He paused, looking eagerly at his companion, it seemed to
him that his description of Mary's
character wns masterly, and thnt his
reasoning was  irresistible.
"Now, sir," suid John,  "it is    my
turn to speak plainly. You may know
mo thoroughly, but you have not tho
remotest     conception     of     my  ideas
about marriage.    1 want my wife to
love me, nnd lean on me — not    to
divide her atTot'tion between me    and
her books, and consider her Judgment
superior to  mine.     I do not    intend
my     wife to be    crushed    by  harsh
words, nor to buttle with adversity;
though, had I been as content    with
£'200 per annum as you desired,  she
might have some difficulty in making
both ends meet. Vou beg me to take
tin.e to  i li ink this  mutter over seriously;   I  have thought of it  for    just.
fifteen years, and eight of tbem have
been spent near here,    it may sound
presumptuous to say    so,   but I believe  1   begun to study  Mary's character long  before     you  did;   it    vvus
years  he'ore you  hud the  opportunity,      Mr.      Ferris.        Vou remember     that       when Mnry first
came to the .Manse, your sister lived
with  you;   did  you  uot  both     think

Mr. Kcrris raised himself slowly
out of his chair: his limbs were n
little stilT. nut] rising was n work of
time, His forehead wns wrinkled,
his expression gloomy. He looked at
his companion in silence for a few
moments, then a gleam of fun stole
into his eyes.
"Well no, lad: if you put it tn that

his books.
"I have been Interrupting you,"
exclaimed John, remorsefully; "will
you begin Work at this hour?"
"Oh, I shall not do much," said
the minister.
lie went to the table, as soon as
he wus alone, und turned over the
pamphlets that lay upon it. He hud
undertaken to give a lecture on China Missions in a few weeks' time;
these papers contained the necessary

them and rearranged tliem, be (dosed

and self-denying men. without having our own hearts stirred within

wandered to the chair that John

failed out of hia mind. "The lad is

Uvea ugain through that brief period of intense Joj and bitter grief.
"It was June then," he murmured,
"and this is June!"
The fund slutted for the relief of
the sufferers from the fin* at Cooper's
Mill, wus exceedingly succossful. Pathetically worded appeals on its t>c-
hulf were sent fur and near, in Which
such stress was luid on the absence
from town of some of the most liberal givers in Glasgow, thut many who
would not otherwise have troubled
themselves In the matter, felt   bound
to assist a charity so obviously
handicapped. Money flowed Into the
treasurer's hands irom all quarters.
The acknowledgments were privately
made; no printed list appeared from
day to day, to diminish in the smallest degree the anxiety that had been
universally felt regarding tlie Success
of tho fund. Later on, when the
grand total was announced and detail:! were published in the daily papers, it became evident that in spite
of their absence from town. "the
most liberal givers" had been applied to und had responded; anil a
slightly Injured sensation was experienced by some who thought that
money hud been extracted from them
under false pretences, The printed list
gave rise to those criticisms of tho
amounts given, anil comparisons between the gifts und the Incomes of
the givers, which sucli lists seem in-
evituhly to Inspire. A curious regard
we show to Charity I holding out offerings to her With our hands, and
taking the occasion to wound her
with our lips.
The treasurer's duties were     very
heavy, anil the Best with Which he
fulfilled them did not fail to attract
notice and admiration l'ven Mr.
Olaverton, who maintained a lynx-
eyed supervision of every iteui of receipt and expenditure, admitted that
the work could not. huve
been       done more efficiently.
Every other member of the
Relief Committee. praised Twiss
without stint, it was indeed Impossl
bio to listen to his pathetic accounts
of the sufferers and remain unimpressed by the eagerness he displayed
in helping theni, although he took
evident pains to keep his own doings entirely in the background,
deprecating every allusion to them.
Where was there another man who
would huve entered into the work
so Whole-heartedly, sparing no iron
ble, spending time and strength so
"The fact is, he is doing too
much." remarked '•*•. Forbes totinv

"I have not hud very many dealings with him until lately, Dr. Forbes. Mr. Claverton manages my affairs, yeu know."
"But I thought—I understood, that
my old friend left considerable sinus
for charitable purposes, und that you
and Richard Twiss were in some Way
concerned in them?"
"Oh. you are thinking of thos;'

the enthusiastic teal displayed by the
treasurer ol the Relief Fund, found
no parallel in his own conduct with
regard to the application sii the
Funds committed to his cure.
The Relief Committee held frequent
meetings nt the treasurer's ollice. and
ut the next of these, Gavin, having
had his attention drawn to Richard's
altered appearance, was bo much
struck by it. thai he commehted on
it to Mr. Claverton when they left,
"Ho you not think this work is
too much for him?" he usked.
"Ought we not to insist on some
one sharing il?"
"No, no — let him alone. He
would not thank you for robbing
him of half his honors. This is ull
his own sloinir, remember; there is
not the smallest necessity fsir him
to ses. to a third of whut he hus undertaken."
"I think," asserted Gavin, with
some warmth, "thut he is devoting
his time to ths'se unfortunate people
most generously I I am really ashamed that it lias taken me so long to
see him in his true light; he is singularly disinterested man'"
Mr. Claverton smiled Indulgently in

The toues of the elder man's voice
censed, and to John Ringwood, Stand*
Ing before him, lt seemed tbat the
whole world was suddenly enveloped
in a mist of red shtiine. When Ring*
wood spoke, bis accents were curiously
quiet and constrained, for wus he not
uddresslng Molly's father?
"And so," he said, wondering vaguely If he were tlie same John King wood
who ten minutes ago hud nsked ho
hopefully for the girl's hand—"and so,
sir, this Is your objs'etloti to me—lie-
cause my father was 11— a—coward"—
the word cume out with u gasping
sound   "you think I must be oni' also!"
"Blood tells,"  returnesl  lls'liry  Mor-
ris hoarsely,   "Rut remember, hid, i
would never have forced this painful
knowledge of mine on you If you lind
not compelled me to sny why I could
not trust my girl to you. Your father's
shame, known only to you nnd me,
would hnve slept with lilm in his grave
but—you would know!"
"That will do," snld Ringwood thickly. "1 um niy father's son, as you say.
There Is no chance here, or 1 might
prove to you tbat (iod does not ulways
mnke us mere copies of those who go
before. But that Is idle. There is one
thing—when I am gone tell Molly that I
loved her, that I usked for her hnnd, but
that there wns a—a barrier between
us. She shall uot think I wus making
summer love to tier,  she shall not hato
tne for that."
"Very well," said tbe elder ninn grimly. "But If I hnd known the girl
would Interest berss'lf in the first good
looking stranger thrown at my gates
by n tiroken ankle I would have taken
preventive measures long ugo."
"I will take the stage tomorrow,"
pursued Rlngwootl. "Until then I must
trespass on your hospitality*"
"And welcome," snisl Morris henrtlly.
"You've met whnt I said like n ninn
Here's my bnnd."
"Is that necessary," returned the other briefly. "Y'ou mny ns well avoid contamination when you hnve condemned
another into hereditary leprosy."
Morris left tho taunt unanswered,
and Just then the library sloor swung
open, and a curly haired hoy of sixteen pushed ln with spoiled freedom.
"Everything's gone to sls>ep on the
ranch," he snld pettishly. "Wlion's
Markham nnd Molly coming home''"
"Your brother snld he would bring
your sister home by 8 o'clock," rcturn-
s*s! Mnrrlq
"Gracious! I hope he will," snisl the
boy. "But she snid they might cut
across to Denhnin's. She wanted to
see old Aunt Hannah or some such
nonsense. I told her she was going
nfter one of Hannah's love charms,
nnd she turned as red as you please."
"Try to tilk sense," snid his father
Irritably, nnd Ringwood crossed to the
west window nnd stootl watching the
sunset tires die to nn nshen grny.
"So rose tho fire of my hopes," he
thought. "Like this, it died In bitter
ashes—flung to my father's level! The
son, O God, of—a coward!"
Eight o'clock cniue. but neither the
elder son nor Molly Morris had returned. At 9 a negro groom brought n note
saying they would sleep that night nt
the Denhams'i some fifteen miles nwuy.
A thrill half anguish, half relief, shot
through Ringwood.   Best, Indeed) that
they should never meet again. He
would take the stage early ns*xt morning.
Tben on the heels of the negro stumbled ln Lee Hung, the conk, who had
been granted an nfternoon off. Blanched to the pnh'st of yellows, he stammered out a tnie in his almost Incomprehensible lingo which, translated,
run ns follows:

"Tnke the short cut through tho canyon, dnd, and we enn bo at 'em in

Quick, Lea Hung, nnd you, boy," to the
negro, "saddle Prince and Firebrand.

But Morris understood.    This was
Rlngwood'S bitter revenge for the

have addressed Itingwtiod, and presently father and son swung Into their

As they vanished In tlie faint light
Ringwood rushed for the burn, loosening his pistol*- In his belt ns he ran.

Premier Dunsmuir's resignation last
Friday came with almost startling
suddenness, being coincident with
Minister Wells'return from an official
visit to Ottawa. The general belief is
the resignation was hurried in order
that Mr. Dunsiuuir might conclude
the negotiations for the transfer of his
Island Railway interests to the Mackenzie-Mann syndicate. Hon. Col.
Prior, according to the understood
contract, was called upon to form a
government and, after some days' delay, did so as follows: Premier and
minister of mines, Col. Prior; attorney
general, D.^. Eberts; finance minister, J. D. Prentice; commissioner of
lands and works, W. C. Wells; pro-
yincial secretary and minister of education, Dennis Murphy; president of
the council, W. W. B. Mclnnes. It is
a curious mixture, but the Colonel
says he has power enough to keep the
machinery running.
It were better the mineowners had
never met at Sandon Thursday, to discuss the lead  mining situation, than
to have made the exhibition they did.
Nothing practical was accomplished
and W. A. Galliher, M.P., was left as
much in the dark as ever as to what
course to urge the federal government
to pursue in order to benefit the country.   The mineawners at the outset
made a fatal uiistako in excluding the
press  from their conference, for the
question is one that gains in force and
effect by being given all the publicity
possible.   In   themselves   the   mine-
owners doubtless consider their organization an influential Ixxly, but to the
outside public and the government
they form an insignificant factor in the
Dominion's composition.    They cannot move the government machinery
at their will.    It takes the public to do
that.   The  lead  question is of public
Importance and were the country taken into the confidence of the mint -
owners, the necessary  pressure could
lie brought to bear on tin* government
to take steps to meet the situation,
The mineowners have the erroneous
idea that they alone are the parties
affected.   By their actions also thej
hnve made it known that they are not
in harmony even among themselves
aud their published resolutions lead
one to think they are  trying to bottle
up a little graft to themselves.   For
.the legislators the situation is decidedly complex.   There   does   exist a
great depression in an important industry, but how  to overcome it is a
hard nut to crack.   The commercial
Ixxlies want a high duty on imported
lead and the miueowners  principally
free trade in  mining supplies.   Thr
mineowners are divided among themselves and they are fearful  the local
smelters, and particularly the C.P.R .
is putting up  some job whereby the
manufacturer will reap the benefits tt
the exclusion of the producer.    It is a
pretty bad moss and will result in the

Editor Drill:
Sir,—In accordance with the expressed wish of those present at the
meeting of silver lead miners, held
here on Nov. 20th and 21st, I now beg
to enclose herewith, for publication in
your paper, copy or the three resolutions passi'd iit said meeting. Yours
truly,   Geo. B. McDonald, Secretary.
Sandon, B.C., Nov. 22, L902.
''This meeting of silver lead miners
iR of the opinion that a protective tariff on imported lead in ores, pig lead
and its products, is desirable, subject
to the conditions that it be clearly
shown and assurance given that such
tariff will be of direct benefit to the
silver lead miners rather than the
smelters and refineries only."
"We would further recommend that
lead bullion, smelted and refined or
otherwise treated in bond in foreign
countries, lie re-admitted to the Dominion of Canada upon the payment
of an ad valorem duty of 15 per cent
of the cost of smelting and refining,
corroding, or other process of manufacturing."
'"It is hereby resolved that a committee of four, with power to add to
this number, be appointed to wait upon the smelters and present to tin m
the recommendations embodied in the
resolutions presented by John L. Re-
tallack at last night's meeting, as
amended; if possible, to obtain from
them a satisfactory guarantee that, in
the event of the endorsement of said
resolution by an adjourned meeting of
this convention, the .smelters will
equitably divide with the shippers any
and all benefits accruing to them in
consequence of passing of legislation
on the lines of our recommendation."
