At Monday evening's meeting of
the city council all the aldermen
were present.
Communications read: From City
Solicitor Jorand, advising the cmni
cil that thoy wore not liable to pay
8. B. Clement's salary as principal ol
the public school for July.
An acrimonious discussion on the
subject followed, Aid. Worden and

In reply to a query from Aid. Worden, it was stated thc city solicitor's
salary would lie paid monthly.
Aid. McCallum reported for tbe
cemetery csnuaittee that they had
selected two sites, one near the Y and
tho other close to tho hills to the east.
The choice was fer the former and
he would like to see the matter sottl
ed up without further delay.
Aid, Barber moved that, as the
mayor was going to Nelson shortly,
he be authorized to see Frank Flet-
eh or and secure a deed fer the site.
Aid. Robertson raised a doubt relative to the site near the Y, as he was
afraid drainage trom the na'sance
ground would seep through. Ik-
would like lo see some test holes
Mayor York said tbe citv would
be require.I to move the bodies from
the present cemetery in the event of
thi* new site being granted.

The  mayor   reported  |515 47   in "
taxi's had been collected, which exceeded expectations.   It was a little .
over one-third of tho face value of
the tax sheet.
City Solicitor Jorand was present
and addressed tho council with reference to trades license bylaw No. 8.
Certain amendments made by the
legislature would have to beincor-|>
Derated and he would advise Ihe /|\
drafting of a new bylaw, as tlie
present one was very faulty. There
was no provision ina.le for saloons,
for instance, and ths would have to
be made at once. The liquor act
called for hotels having no less than I
thirty rooms and there were few j
places in the city coining in under |/|\
that head. The council bod uo po*A0r|i|L
to modify the law, and the hi»tels at j •*•
present not qualifying mujt come in | M>
under as saloons.
This announcement somewhat
squelched the council and the aldermen found thoinsclvesallatsea. The
solicitor told the council that the
hotel men could come on to thec'uy In
the event of trouble.
Following an  interesting  discus
sion, the solicitor was instructed to
prepare the   bylaw   in   accordance i*
with the act. All bylaws would have
to be registered by the 17ih.
Other alterations, including provision for the Music Hall license, were
ordered to bu niaihi in the bylaw.
Council adjourned.

tho Property.
Matters u"feeling the Ottawa took
a decided change shortly after the
visit here last week of Messrs, Noble
and Coleman, of Pittsburg, and by
Saturday night tho propeity had
passed into their possession on a cash
basis. Two small interests alcne remain outside and they will be secured without any delay, When the
Pittsburg people failed to come to an
agreement with tho lessees, Messrs.
Mulvey and Clement, owning the
controlling interest in the group, offered to Bell out for cash, which was
accepted, and the -ther owners soon
fell into line. The amount paid,
through the Royal Bank at Nelson,
was considerably less than thaiealletl

A second deal of prominence to be
consummated during tho weok was
that of tho Exchange group, en Dayton creek, whieh was acquired by
eastern American capitalists through
the instrumentality of Charles Dempster. The transaction came as a distinct surprise, as no inkling of it had
been allowed to leak out. The sum
Involved is kept private, but it is
known to bo substantial and was for
cash, the money being paid over in
the Bank of Commerce, Nelson, on
Friday. There are two claims in the
group, known ns the Exchange and
Silver Plate, and the main putties to
the deal were IL L. Fife and J. T.
Tipping, wiih a ceuple of silent part
The Exchange has had a remarkable career and ln its heyday attracted much attention. In tho early
dnys it was secured by a company of
Canadian politicians and monied

•Tben send blm pack-In*-. Lord or
no lord, proud or bumble, If be fur

are untrue, then—wby, then you will
consider what to do. But, Molly, 1 do
not believe tbat any explanations will
ne forthcoming and tbat your noble
lover will carry It off to tho end wltb
the same lofty pride and cold mien."
"Let us go Into tbe parlor, Jack.
There are tbe captain's writing materials. Help me to say wbat Is proper.
Ob, Is It possible? Can 1 believe It?
Are these tblngs true? Tbat proud
man, raised above bis fellows by bis
virtues and bis rank and bis principles!   Jack, be risked his life for uie."
"Ask uo more questions, Molly. We
must bave explanations. Let us write
tho letter."
It was Molly's first letter—the only
letter, perhaps, that she will ever write
In all her life. Certainly she had never
written one before, uor bas sbe ever
written one since. Like most housewives, her writlug Is ouly wanted for
household accounts, recipes for puddings and plea and tbe labeling of her
bottles and Jars. I have the letter before me at tbls moment. It Is written
ln a large, sprawling hand, and tbe
spelling is not such as would satisfy
my father.
Naturally she looked to me for advice. I bad written many letters to
my owners and to foreign merchants
about cargoes, and tlie like, and was
therefore able to advise the composition of a letter wblcb should bo
lustly expressed and to the point:
"Honored Lord—This Is from mo at
the present moment ln my guardian's
parlor"—writlug parlor when I as mate
of the ship should have written port or
harbor. "It Is to Inform you tbat Intelligence has been brought by letters
from London and Cambridge. Touching the matters referred to in these letters, I bave to report for your satisfaction that they call your lordship ln
round terms a gamester and a ruined
rake and your companions at tbe spa—
viz, Sam Semple, tbe parson, the rickety old beau and tbe colonel—simple
rogues, common cheats and sharpers.
Shall not, therefore, meet your lordship at tbe cburcb tomorrow morning
as Instructed. Awaiting your lordship's
explanations and commands, your most
obedient, bumble servant,
Thls letter I folded, sealed, addressed
and dropped Into my pocket Then I
bade Molly good night, entreated bee
to be thankful for her escape and so
left ber wltb a light heart Verily It
seemed as If tbe sadness of the last
two months bad been wholly and suddenly lifted, and on my way back to
tbe Crown I passed the Lady Anssta-
sla's lodging just as her cbalr wae
brought to the house. I opened tha
door for her and stood bat ln hand.
• "Why, It Is Jack!" she cried. "It Ie
tbe sailor Jack, tbe constant lover.
Have you anything more to tell me?"
"Only tbat Molly will not keep tbat
appointment of tomorrow evening"—
"Oh, tbat Interesting appointment ln
St Nicholas' cburcb. May a body ask
why tbe ceremony has been postponed?"
"-Things have been disclosed at the
last moment, fortunately ln time."
"Wbat tblngs, and by whom?"
"By letter. It Is stated as a fact well
known tbat Lord Fyllngdale la notblng
better tbau a ruined rake and a notorious gamester."
"Indeed! Tbe excellent Lord Fyllngdale! Impossible! Quite Impossible!
Tbe Illustrious example of so many
virtues! Tbe explanations will be, I
am sure, complete and satisfactory.
Ruined; a rake; a notorious gamesterl
Wbat next will tbe world say? Does
bis lordship know of tbls discovery?
Not yet? You said it was a discovery,
did you not? Well, my friend, I am
much obliged to you for telling me.
You are quite sure Molly will not be
there? Very good of you to tell me.
For my own part I start for London
quite early —at 5 o'clock. Goodby,
Then I went Into the Crown, where
I learned that tbe captain bad been
reading another letter containing accusations as bad as those In tbo otber
So we fell to talking over the business, and It was resolved tbat tbe captain should demand explanations by
letter, that be should refuse to receive
the villain Sam Semple or bis lordship
and that tbe vicar should. If necessary,
proceed to London and tbere learn
wbnt be could concerning tbe past history and tbe present reputation of the
uoble suitor. Meantime 1 said no moro
about the Intended marriage at St
Nicholas' church and tbe abandonment
of the plan. As things turned out It
would have been far better bad I told
the captain and bad we both planted
ourselves as sentinels at tbe door, so as
to be quite sure tbat Molly did not go
forth at tl In tbe morning.
Tbat evening, after leaving me, Lady
Anastasia sent a note to Lord Fyllngdale. "I am leaving Lynn early tomorrow morning. I expect to bo ln London In two daya Shall write to Molly."
nAD rowed myself
aboard tbat evening
In a strange condition
of exultation, fori bad
no doubt—no doubt at
all—that tbe charges
were true and that a
conspiracy of tbe most
deadly kind was not only discovered.
but also checked, and I could not but
admire the craft  and  subtlety  with
which the favorite of the muses bad
devised a plan by wblcb lt was made
possible for the conspirators to come
all together witbout the least suspicion
to tbe town of Lynn.
Nobody could stand against him, not
could any one in Lord Fyllngdale'a rank
visit tbo town ln its ordinary condition
witbout receiving an Invitation to
Houghton If Sir Robert was tbere unless, Indeed, there were reasons why he
should not be visited or received. What
Sam had not expected was without
donbt tbo wonderful success of his deception, the eagerness wltb which the
country round accepted his inventions,
tbe readiness wltb which they drank
these Innocent waters, tbe miraculous
cures effected and the transformation
of the venerable old port and trading
town Into a haunt and resort of fash*
Ion and the pursuit of pleasure.
Thinking of all these things and In
blissful anticipation of tbe discomfiture
of all tbo conspirators, there was an
Important thing that I quite forgot—
namely, to send Molly's letter to her
suitor in bis room at the Crown. I
carried the letter in my pocket I undressed and lay down In my bunk. I
slept with a light heart, dreaming only
of tblngs pleasant until the morning,
wben tbe earliest stroke of tbe hammer
from tbe yard and the quay woke me
up. It was tben 5:30. I sat up. I rubbed my eyes. I then suddenly remembered tbat the letter was ln my pocket
It was, I say, 5:30. The engagement
was for 0 o'clock. I might bave to run
yet to stop Lord Fyllngdale.
It does not take long to dress. You
may Imagine that I did not spend time
In powdering my hair. In a quarter of
an bour I was over the side of the sblp
and in my dingey.
By the clock In the Common Stath It
was five minutes to 0 wben I landed
hnd made her fast I climbed tbe
stairs and ran as fast as my legs could
carry me to the Crown inn. As I
reached the door the clock struck &
Was Lord Fyllngdale lu his room? I
was too late. He had left the bouse
only five minutes before and bad been
carried in his cbalr across the market
I followed. It was already five min
utes past the hour. I should find bin
in the church chafing at the delay. I
should give him the letter and retire.
The market place was filled with the
market people and wltb the townspeople who came to buy. I pushed across,
stepping over a basket and jostled by a
woman with poultry and vegetables.
It was seven or eight minutes after 0 when I arrived st the church.
The doors of tbe south porch were
open. Within I heard tbe sound of
voices or at least of one voice. I looked In.
Heavens! Wbat bad happened? Not
only was I late with my letter, but—
but could I believe my eyes? Molly
herself stood before the altar. Facing
ber was Lord Fyllngdale, wbo held her
band. Within the rails stood the Rev.
Benjamin I'urden, beside blm the clerk
to make the responses, and the minister, wben I arrived, wos actually saying the words which the bridegroom
repeats after tbe minister, completing
In effect the marriage ceremony.
"I, Ludovlc, take thee, Mary, to my
wedded wife," and so on, according to
the form prescribed, and again thj
words beginning:
"With tbls ring I thee wed"—
I stood and listened, lost In wonder.
Then came the prayer prescribed,
after which tbe clergyman Joined theii
bands together, saying:
"Those whom Cod hath joined together let no man put asunder."
I beard no more. I sat down on the
nearest bench. What was the meaning of this sudden change? Remember
that I bad left Molly only a tew hours
before this fully resolved that sbe
would demand an Inquiry Into the
statements and charges made In the
two letters—resolved tbat she would
not keep the engagement, her admiration for tbe proud, brave, noble creature, her lover, turned Into loathing.
And now, now, in the early morning.
With her letter in my pocket stating
ber change of purpose, I found her at
tbe altar and actually married.
"Whom God hath joined together let
not man put asunder."
Wbat If tbe man Purden was all that
he was described? Tbe priestly office
confers rights and powers which are
Independent of the man who holds that
ollice. Whatever his private wickedness, Purden was a clergyman, and
therefore he could marry people.
Molly stood before the ulinr. as had
been arranged. She wore a black silk
domino; she bad on a pink silk cloak
with a hood drawn over her head, so
that she wns quite covered up and concealed. But I knew ber by ber stature,
wblcb was taller than the common,
and by ber dress, wblcb bad been
agreed upon.
Then the bridegroom offered his
band and led the bride Into tbe vestry.
Tbey were to sign tbe marriage register.
And here I rose and slunk away. I
say that I slunk away. If you like It
better, I crawled away, for 1 was
Sick at heart. The thing wblcb I most
dreaded, the marriage of our girl to a
rake and a gamester, bad been actually accomplisbcd. Misery aud rulu
would be her lot. A-nd In my pocket
was ber letter asking ror explanation—
and withdrawing her promise for tb
morrow. Could one believe one's
I crawled away, nshnmed for the
first time In my life of tbe girl I loved.
Women, I said to myself, are poor,
weak creatures. They believe everything. Lord Fyllngdale in net have
been with her early, lie hud but to
deny tbe wbole; she accepted the denial. I'esplte ber resolution she walked with bint to the cbiirib as tbe lamb
goes to the shambles. Oli. Molly! Who
could have believed It of you?
1 left the cburcb and went away.   I
tbougbt of going to tbe captain; of
telling my father; of telling tbe vicar,
but It seemed like treachery, and 1 refrained.
Instead, I walked back to tbe quay
and paddled to tbe sblp. where presently tbe barges came alongside and
tbe day's work began. Fortunate It Is

unbappluess bis work bas to be done
and he Is desirous to put aside bis sorrow and to think upon bis duty. But
—alas! Poor Molly 1 Wbo could bavo
believed It possible?
Well, you see, I did not follow this
wedding to an end. Had I gone Into
tbe vestry I should bave been witness
of something very unexpected.
Tbe clergyman bad tbe registers lying on tbe table open. Be took a pen
end filled In tbe forma Be tben offer
ed tbe pen to the bride.
"My lady." be said. "I must nsk your
ladyship to sign tlie register—lu duplicate. If you please."
The bride sat down and ln a large,
bold band wrote ber name—Mary Miller.
Then the bridegroom took tbe pen
and signed "Fyllngdale."
Tbe clergyman sprinkled tbe pounce
box over the names and shut up tbe
books, which be gave to the clerk.
This officer took the books and locked
tbem ln tbe great trunk wnicii held the
papers and books of tbe church, putting the key In his pocket.
"And now," said Mr. I'urden, "let me
congratulate my noble patron and tbo
newly made countess on this auspicious event. I bave brought with me
a bottle of tbe flneBt por*. tne Crown
possesses, and I venture to drink
health, happiness and prosperity." So
saying he produced a bottle and glasses. The bride, without saying a word,
inclined her head to tbe bridegroom
and drank off ber glass. Lord Fyllngdale, wbo looked. If one may say so of
a bridegroom, peevish snd ill at ease,
raised his glass. "To your Happiness.
Molly," be said.
So all was mushed. "You are golnr
borne, Molly?" he nsked. "Fa* the
present—tnat ia to ssy, for a uny or
two—lt will be best I shall claim you
very soon. There Is no one but ourselves In the vestry." (Fur the clerk,
having locked tbe box and accepted tbe
guinea bestowed upon him by tbe bridegroom, was now tramping down the
church and through the porch. No one
but themselves was In the vestry or
tbe church.) "You may therefore take
off your domino."
"As your lordship pleases." Lord
Fyllngdale started. Whose voice was
that? "As you order I obey." So the
bride removed her domino and threw
back tbe hood.
The bridegroom started. "What Is
thla?" be cried, furious with certain
words which were out of place lu a
"Lady Anastasia I" cried Mr. Purden.
"Good Lord! Then we are nil undone!"
"Whnt does It mean? Tell me. she
devil! Whnt does It mean? Where Is
Molly? But this Is play acting. This
Is not n marriage."
"I fear, my lord," said the parson,
"that It Is a marriage. Tbe registers
are In the strong box. Tbey cannot
be altered."
"Go after the clerk, man. Order him
to give up the keys. Tear the pages
out of the registers."
"I cannot," said Mr. Purden. "I dare
not. The man Is a witness of this
marriage. Be has seen the entry In
tbe register. I dare not alter them or
destroy a single page. I have done a
great deal for your lordship, but this
thing I ennnot do, It Is n marriage, I
say. You are married to the Lady Anastasia here."
"Talk! Talk! Go after the man.
Bring back the man. Tear the keys
from him. Silence the man. Buy bis
silence. By heaven, I will murder him
ln order to stop bis tongue!"
"Your lordship forgets your bride—
your bappy, smiling. Innocent bride."
He cursed ber. He raised bis hand
as If to strike her down, but forbore.
"I told you," sbe continued, "that In
everything I was at your service—except In one thing. Tear the registers-
murder tbe clerk—but the bride will be
left. And If you murder ber as well
you will be no nearer tbe possession of
the lovely Molly."
The bridegroom sank Into a cbalr.
He was terrible to look nt, for his
wrath nnd disappointment deprived
him of tbe power of speech. Where
was now the cold nnd haughty front?
It wns gone. He sat In the chulr, upright hla face purple, his eyes sturtlng
from his bead, as one wbo hath some
kind of fit
The clergyman, still In bis white surplice, looked ou and trembled, for his
old pupil was In a murderous frame of
iiilml. There was uo knowing whom
he might murder. Besides, he bud before this divined the true nii'iitilug of
tbe visit to Lynn, and tie foresuw ruin
to himself as well as his patron.
Lord Fyllugdalo turned upon him
suddenly and cursed him for a fool, an
ass, a villain, a traitor. "You are In
the plot," be said. "You knew all along.
You have been suborned."
"My lord, my lord, bavo patience.
What could I know?   I was bidden te
be here at 0 to marry you. I supposed
Unit the bride was the fair Miss Molly
I eould not tell. I know nothing. Tbe
lady was lu u domino. It is Irregular
to "be married in a domino, but your
lordship wished It.   What could I do?"
•Send for tbe key. tben. and destroy
tbe registers."
"Alas, my lord, it Is now, you may be
sure, all over tbe town that you have j
been married, and to Miss Molly."
"Where Is Molly?    Where Is Molly i
tben?   Why did she keep away?"
The bride looked on wltb ber mock- J
Ing smile of triumph. "You may mnr- i
der me." she sold, "but you will not j
undo tbe marriage. I bavo been mar j
rled, lt Is true, under a false name, but
I am married none tbe less." I
"You havo brought ruin upon us all." j
ber   husband   said,   "ruin,   headlong
ruin.   I am at my last guinea   1 can
raise no more money.   1 hove no more j
credit   You yourself are as much discredited."
"If you are ruined." tbe lady replied,
"you are rightly punished. Bow many
vows bave you made to me? How
many lies bave you Invented to keep
ine qu lot?"
"With submission, my lord," Mr.
Purden stammered, for terror nnd bewilderment held blm. "Tbls Is a bad
morning's work. Let me advise that
before the town Is awake we leave the
cburcb uud talk over tbe business In
ber ladyship's rooms or elsewhere. We
must be private. To curse and to
swear helps notblng, nor does It help
to talk of a jealous revenge. Let us
It wns with a tottering step, as If he
was smitten with palsy, lhat the bridegroom walked down the aisle. The
bride put up her domino and threw ber
hood over ber bead and so. wltb the
parson, lu silence, walked away from
the cburcb to ber lodging, leaving the
bridegroom to follow by himself. As
yet the market people had uot heard
the news.
But the news spread. The clerk told
his wife. "I come from the church,"
he said. "I have witnessed the marriage of Miss Molly—Captain Crowlo'a
Molly—with Hie noble lord, who wears
the star and looks so grand. A private
wedding It was. I know not why. The
parson wns the Rev. Mr. Purden, he
who reads the morning prayers and
preaches on Sunday."
Then the clerk's wife, slipping on her
apron—for such folk find the shelter of
the aprou for their bauds necessary lu
conversation—ran round to the pump-
room. No one was there as yet but
the two dippers. To them she com
niunicntcd the news.
Then she went on to the market aud
told all the people of the town whe
were chaffering there.

French soldier who hud i. ude n pretense of being converted to the Hindoo

of the priests aud admission to the
temple. The Frenchman first sold tbe
diamond for £8,000. On the next «urn
It wus bought by a banker of Constantinople for £12,000. The banker kept it

Threaten  Man.
The greatest dangers which threaten
men are generally Invisible to the vie
tlm, and among these none Is more
productive of disastrous consequences
than "electrical leakage." the selfsame
leakage used by the natives of ull hot
climates to lower their temperatures.
As no organic function can take place
except by means of electrical currents,
so lt can be easily understood that lt
those currents leak from our bodies
the loss of power must lie distinctly
harmful. A common Instance of this
loss of electricity from our bodies consists of what we call a nervous shock,
the scientific explanation being that s
sudden egress of electricity takes place
owing to the violent mental Impressions Involuntarily forcing a current of
power through chanuels which had not
been previously open to receive tbem.
"This," remarked a scientist, "is but
one case among n thousand of the ways
In which we uselessly expend our vital
power. The electrical waste of u person Is entirely due to his surroundings
—the seat upon which you sit. the table npon which you write, the floor, the

Unlets efforts are put forth to improve communications with the Two
Friends and Black Prince, there is a
.strong probability of tho ores from
those properties going to Kootenay
lake via Six Mile creek, In that
event the trade of that section will go
te Nelson. Slocan cannot afford lo
stand for that.
The Fernie strike has been settled
and thc relief to the business interests eft he country is groat. A supply of coke is now assured and thc
smelters of the Buundary camp may
' resume permanent operations. Once
the mine officials and men got together it did not tako long to amicably
adju t the questions in dispute. Compulsory arbitration would ensure just
as speedy a settlement of all industrial disputes.
The one bright spot in thc mining
districts of thc Intorior of the province is the Slocan City division.    It is
-the one dry ore section ofthe country and its merits are such as to attract the attention of the continent.
The cash deals just concluded on thc
Exchange and Ottawa will increase
-the notoriety of the camp and further
.the impression among capitalists that
.its resources will bsar investigation.
All the money coming in is Yankee
coin, again demonstrating that the
astute Yankee knows a gootl thing
when he sees it.   Money talks every
.time.        ___________
.In every mining camp there is always an element of tho population
that is dyspeptie and disgruntled,
and whose delight it is to decry the
country and discourage all efforts to
open it up, Latterly these degenerates have come to be known as
knockers. Unfortunately for the
welfare of thc city, Slocan lias held a
certain percentage of these people,
whose minds became warpt through
jealousy and their opinions biased by
viiidictivencss. The camp has met
with favor from monicd men and the
knockers have felt hurt, but the pub
lie has become aroused and tlie tlis
gruntled are crawling into their holes
and pulling thc bolei in after then.
The storm of opposition lias centred
.particularly around Charles Dempster, who floated the Republic. Sapphire and Exchange groups. Determined efforts have been made to
wreck him and his promotions, with
the effect only of the calumnies recoiling upon thc heads of thc tra
duccre. The capital introduced by
Mr. Dempster into tho camp is em
ploying at least 50 men and the eity
is deriving thc benefit from many
.thousands of dollars expended iach
month in labor and supplies. Demonstrations of that nature are what
the camp wants and tho more ths
merrier, for the resources are here to
justify them. What effect the knocking bas had may be judged Irom the
.following telegram received by THE
Drill from Detroit:
"Surely sueh shortsighted and
contemptible procedure on part
