Submit Their KitImati-a-Rate ef Taxation Is be Struck Next If eetlog-Cel-
lertar'a Roll Ordered.
All the members were present at
last Monday's meeting of the eity
council.
W S. Gere, deputy minister of
lands and works, wrote: "Your letter ofthe Hit nit., addressed to tbe
provincial secretary, asKing that the
Slec:tn school house grounds be deeded over to the school board, has been
referred to this department, and I
beg to Inform you that the matter is
receiving attention and a crown
grunt will be is.ua! at an early
date."
Other communications read: From
B. C. Engraving Co., Vancouver,
submitting price of $24 tor a collector's roil; from the Colonist, Victoria,
offering ona for $18.
The three letters were ordered
filed.
Moved by Aid. McCallum, seconded by Aid. Nichol,that the city clerk
procure a copy ofa roll from the Victoria Colonist.   Carried.
The health committee -ubmittcd
the following it port: "We, the un
doi'signed coinm'tee on health, beg
to submit to you our estimate for this
year's expenditure for cleaning up
streets and lanes of all garbage; also
to collect all dry garbage, etc., at
present Mattered all over ihe garb-
aga ground; and also to dig and
scrape out a trench, 50x10x4 feet, to
receive all niglit soil and liquid mat
ter. We find that wo will require
tba following amounts to do this
wr.ik: cleaning up streets and lanes,
$20; collecting jrarbage and digginc
trench at garbage ground, fM. Wa
also beg to recoinniend that nil build*
nigs ft-und en In ues uud streets should j
be removed tu property lines so as to

wlsstruetions."
Hoard of works reported as fullo""**:
"Estimate ef money needed by the
board of works: $100 for clonrin<-
l.ines in rear uf bit ck A and block 1;
$250 for clearing Springer ci-eok and
protecting briJger*; $50 for Delaney
ave; $50 for repairing Main street;
$50 for repairing Harold street one
block south vt Fletcher avenue; $100
for miscellaneous repairs."
The lire, wnter 4 light committee
stated tliey did not require any ap
propria tion at present.
Aid. Worden moved that the reports be accepted and referred to the
finance cuminittce ior supervision and
to allot funds.
Aid. McCallum objected to that
move, as the council sliould deal witli
the question of striking a rate.
Aid. Wordon then withdrew his
motion in favor ef tlie reports being
laid on thc table for ono week. Sec
onded bv Aid. Smith.
Aid. McCallum said the fire, water
and light committee could nut ask for
much money, as there would be so
little funds forthcoming from council, unless a high rate of taxation
were struck, anl there was no use at
pre ent demanding a fire engine and
other supplies.
Motion pit and carried.
Bills presented: T. McNeish & Co.
coal, $7; K.A. Bradshaw, stamps, $1.
Referred to finance committee.
Chairman Robertson said that the
council should bo prepared at next
meeting to strike rate of taxation.
Aid. McCallum thought the clerk
should prepare a statement of probable expenditures and receipts, and
then the oout-.ll could see what they
had to contend with in getting at the
rate of taxation.
Tlie clerk said tho council owed
$800 and had |1M on hand, with
several bills remaining unpaid.
Aid. Smith asked to have the
elcrk's statement for Wednesday
evening, as the finance committee
would then meet and prepare for the
striking of the rate,
Aid. Worden inquired if the council had a member on the board ofthe
M. U. U-eneral Hospital, as the man
•irrement desired civic representation
thereon.
A discussion ensued upon tho question ef admitting a female patient
into the hospital, Aid. Worden and
Nichol moving that Aid. McCallum
and Barber be a committee to act in
the matter.   Carried.
Aid. McCallum nsked the privilege
for himself and others of planting
trees and boulevarding the residential streets, the trees'*to be planted at
a fixed distance from thc side lines.
All such work would be done along
given lines, and there were a number
of ratepayers who would follow out
tho idea.
Tlio request was granted, on mo
tion ot Aid. Smith and Barber.
Aid. McCallum brought forward
the question of making a $50 grant.
to the  band, provided funds were
available for the purpose.
Aid. Barber thought the idea good
and favored doubling tho grant, if
possible, as did also the other aldermen.
Aid Barber moved that the sum of
$50 for the band be placed in the estimates for the year. Seconded by
Aid. Nichol and carried.
Aid.* Worden called attention of
board of works to dangerous condition of sidewalk near Aid. Robert-
sen's placo and suggested a railing
being placed thereon.
Chairman Robertson called attention to the trees in the river, cut and
put in there by the C.P.R. When
the high water came, there was dan
ger o*' the trees taking out the lower
bridge.
Instructions were given the board
of works, to pnt a railing on the Main
street sidewalk, where necessary.
Council adjourned.
A HIU DEAL.
Max Hrckinaaii Disposes of Bis Various
Mineral  Holdings.
One of the largest and most com
prehensive deals put through in the
camp this season was concluded dur
ing thc week, whereby Max Heck
mann disposes of bis several mining
interests.   It was a sort of double
deal embraced in the one transaction.
Ernest Ilarrop, of Nelson, acquired
a 5-18 interest in each of the Crown
Point and Nelson claims; J interest
in each of the Swiss, Highland Chief,
Berne, Rocky fraction and Kootenay
Pass; and j interest in the Black
Prince and Clipper. James W. Moffatt, of Nelson, and A. York secured
a quarter interest each in thc Eva
claim.
The full deal calls for a bond of
$C000and a certain cash payment
bfsides. Harrop's purchases are all
situated on the one mountain at tlie
In ad of Lemon creek and embrace
whnt is known as the Alpine group.
Part of tlie latter group is fu the Nelson division and all are crown grant
ed. It is the most famous free milling gold proposition in the country
•ind is destined lo turn nut a big producer. There arc three distinct
ledges in Harrop's purchases and all
are free tiiillii:g,carrying pretty high
values. The Alpine at one timo was
limit r bond to A. Dick, of Rossland,
for $00,000, who spent a good deal of
money in development thereon. The
other interests iu the group arc held
principally in New Denver.
The Eva claim ndj ins the Speculator group, on Springer creek, to
the cast, and has a vein exposed similar to that oa the Arlington. Messrs.
York and Moffatt have strengthened
their position by securing a half interest between thr in in thc Deadwood
and Greenwood claims adjoining tlie
Eva from W. Harris and J. Reid, tlie
whole three claims being known as
the Dead weed group. It is the intention of the purchasers in each case of
all the claims mentioned to work
their holdings during the coming
summer.
The deal was the outcome of negotiations conducted bv Jos. Saulter
and A. Yoik. Max Heckmann and
his brother will leave shortly to visit
their parents in Oregon and then proceed north to Dawson, to prospect for
pold.	
Hutlliigtou Cosnpaay Incorperated.
During the week the Burlington
Mining & Milling Co. was incorporated at Spokane, Wash., with n capital
stock of $150,000. Tlio incorporators
are W. D. Wrighter, W, S. Rogers,
C. W Geib, J. H. Travels and T. A.
Noble, the latter being of Pittsburg.
The property ownoJ by the company
is tho Iron Horse group of claims,
situated below the Enterprise mine,
on Ten Mile. Up to two weeks ago
the property had been working continuously for somu months, an I nn
elegant chute of oro has been opened
up on the Enterprise vein. There is
a good hoisting plant at thc niiee and
a full equipment of buildings. A
wagon road connects the Iron Horse
with the Enterprise road,giving easy
communication at all seasons of tho
year.	
Trnnafer Mewl Extension.
Sidney Norman, -alio has the bond
on the Transfer group, sent in last
week and asked for an extension of
time for tho first payment on the
purchase price, which fell due on
May 1. The extension was granted
bv the owners, as thc bonders wished to do much mere work. On Tuesday ef this week' the men employed
came down the hill, stating that tbey
were going to have a 30 day lay oft,
tlioir grub having run short, and the
trail too soft to take a horse in.
Sleoan's guldlnr Hoys.
Letters were received last week
from Messrs. Luke, Law and Clarke,
the three Slocan boys with the second
Canadian  Rifles  in South  Africa.
Thoy had arrived safely at Durban,
but all three had been in hospital
owing to sea sickness. The corps
was quarantined, as smallpox had
broken out in the ranks and there
was no telling when they would be
released. 	
NEW GOLD DIGGINGS.
Reported Discovery Near Head of Keote-
n ay Lake.
A report comes from Kaslo that
word has been received there from
parties that gold exists en Cooper
creek, three miles from Lardo.
Proulx, Ulvin, and other men this
spring gave the creek a diligent
search, with the result that they have
come to the conclusion thnt gold docs
exist in paying quantities. They are
now organizing a company and will
give it a practical test. Proulx and
Ulvln are -very reticent, but they
are incorporating a company, under
the title of the Cooper Creek Gold
Mining Co. They have a force of
men working on the ground and have
located nine claims. They are building a dam and will carry all tbe
waters of Cooper creek in a flume
past the ground they intend working.
A scow load of lumber left Knsle a
few days ago along with other supplies, for the new company. This
lumber was specially cut by the
Kootenay lake sawmill.
The gold is decidedly coarse and
very often a pan of dirt from the
surface yields 25 cents. There is considerable truth in the report as numerous prospectors are going into the
camp. Cooper creek, from thc can-
yen to thc railway track, a dist nee
of half a mile, has been staked. People around here are awaiting patiently for the company to finish the dam
aud make the test. If everything
turns out as first reported, the stampede to Thunder mountain and Car
iboo will net be in it. About 20
years ago Colonel Fry at the mouth
of Fry creek panned out a large sum.
A slide came down and covered his
diggings and work was suspended.
AXOI lll.lt DEAL.
W. E. Boie, while here during the
week, disposed of a large portion of
his mineral holdings to W. T. Shat-
f«rd and some Vernon friends. In
this camp tho deal included a quarter interest in the Dorest and Sum-
mcrside, two of thc Black Prince
group, on Springer creek, and which
are regarded as valuable possessions.
But the majsir portion ofthe transaction embraces property in the Similkameen country, where the purchasers secure a quarter interest in
no less thun 13 claims. These are
all copper prospects and include some
ofthe Lest showings in that camp.
They are located on Dodd's mountain, in what Is known as the Aspen
Grove section, about 15 miles or so
from Princeton. One of the groups,
known as thc Vancouver, is eonsid
ered the leading property in the sec
tion. It has an ore body exposed 50
feet wide, averaging 13 per cent iu
copper. What work has been done
is principally surface cutting, but
there can bo no doubt as to its worth.
Ernest Mansfield at one time held u
bond on the properly for $100,000.
As yet there is no communication to
the country, bul so soon as the Coast
railway is built the property will become very valuable, Dad Allen and
Con Murphy, of this plnce, each own
a quarter in the 13 claims mentioned.
Hospital Improvements.
The hospital building is boing
moyed back from the street, so as to
permit of tlio erection of a double
decked verandah in front. The present shed iu the rear is to be pulled
down and a new addition built the
full width of the building, and in it
will be located a bathroom. Other
improvements arc contemplated, including painting thc hospital inside
and out.	
New TssBiii-1 on Neepawa.
An intermediate tunnel was commenced some time since on tho Neepawa, above the Dickinson tunnel
and below whero thc recent shipments wero taken from. The distance to the ore chute is counted at
200 feet and thc drift is advancing
about six feet a day. Three shifts
arc employed nnd so soon us tho ore
body is cut shipments will follow.
Retnrna en Duplt'X Ore.
Cross & Nathan have received
their returns on the ore shipped from
the Duplex, The figures were quite
satisfactory, giving about $70 per
ton net. The gold values were in tlie
neighborhood of $25 and the balance
was in silver.
The sleighs from the Arlington got
stuck Wednesday coming down, as
the snow is wearing off fast.

Only the Arlington is represented
in the shipping list this week, tliey

breaking up of the roads. Both the
Enterprise and Neepawa will ship
from Ten Mile next week, and the
Fourth of July will make a small
shipment from town.
For 1900 the exports from this division amounted to 2847 tons, mado
up from 10 properties. Last year
the exports totalled 0529 tons, from
14 properties. Following is a full

i'fip Sampson brought his cane down

"Of co'se Sim wa'n't skeered,'" he
snisl. "A man that'll do like lib done
ain't a-gTvine to git skeered at nothln.
Sim llnnks skeered! Lord, you make
nie plumb tired."
"My land, Pap, you're plumb right
'bout that.   A feller fixed like Sim was
that; don't have no time to think 'bout
glttln sheered.   1 know jest how lt are,
'cause  I've been'In  lots of Jest slch

Ultfh jest that snmc thing once. 00 a

••Wns Unit the time you fit Hicks'
taters down tliur In the cellar, Ebenezer?"
Kheiiczer   Sparks  tossed  his   head
., with nn air of fine scorn.
"I reckon," he said, "you think you're
pow'ful smart, alius draggln that old
cellar In ever' time 1 dnst to open my
mouth. But 1 guess you'll keep on
n-diaggln It In till you've wore lt
plumb out."
Pap Sampson, \_ho bnd beeu out on
tbe street, came hurriedly In and whispered something to Sim. No one heard
what he snlil, but whatever lt was It
■ Lad a magical effect, for Sim was
transformed In an Instant from a state
of listless apathy to one of eager and
excited Interest. His face beamed, and
hi:* eyes glistened, und be trembled
from head to foot. [In sprang up nnd
Started out, but Sar.i Morgan hild his
hand gently on his nt 11 lo detain him.
- The next moment n woman appeared
In the open door. Evorybody looked
up nnd saw It was Lot a. Then a silence as still as death rail over the
scene.
Bhe paused for an instant and glanced around. Her eyes wondered until
they rested on Sim. Then with a cry
full of joy and pathos she tottered toward him. Ills nrms opened to receive
her, and the next moment she wns
folded to his brenst, nnd ln silence they
Were weeping together.
Nobody spoke. It was a scene too
impressive, too sacred, to be disturbed.
Mnny stood wltb their beads bent,
their hearts full.nnd their eyes moist
with tears. Sam Morgan drew his
handkerchief from bis pocket nnd hastily turned his face away, while Ebenezer Sparks stood (smiling Idiotically,
making heroic efforts to appear unaffected.
No one moved but Pap Sampson. He
stood thumping tbe floor with his cane
ns though he had a contract to thump
a hole through It and was determined
to accomplish his undertaking. All the
while there was a smile on his wrln-
kleil, tanned old face such as had not
been 6een tbere for ninny days. He
was hnppy, and no wouder! He had
worked and hoped and longed for this
all thoso four long years.
It was Sim who broke the silence.
Taking Louisa's bead between his
bands, be raised It gently until tbelr
eyes met Then be saw that Bhe, too,
had suffered.
"l'oor little girl!" he said tenderly,
"lt has been hard, cruelly hard, for
yon."
"Yes," she sighed, "hard and dark,
but it has been harder for you. Poor
Sim!"
"And you pity me too'f"
She Brew closer to him and met his
eyes with hers In a look full of tenderness.
"It Is not that, Sim," she whispered.
"It Is not pity."
He began to tremble. Ah, could ft be
that heaven was about to open right
before blm, with all Its light and glory,
after this long, weary night of bitter
desolation? He dared not hope. It
was too much to expect. In husky, eager tones he said:
"Louisa, tell me, what Is Itr
"lt is love."
Tlieu to Sim Banks all the glory and
joys of earth and heaven were unfolded, and In one moment nil the dark sorrows nud pains of tbe past, all tbe
threatened dangers of tbe future, passed nwny as a dream. Tbat was the
one moment of supreme bliss la bis
life.
Holding ber close to bis heart, be
said:
"Loueesy, Is It really true? Can It be
possible?"
"It Is," sbe replied. "It Is nil tme. I
love you. 1 bave loved you for a long
time. How could 1 help It after all
your goodness to me and lhe way you
did when you went away?"
Sim looked at her wonderlngly.
"I don't underr-tand," he said. "1 only tried to do my duty the best I could.
It wasn't much."
"It was much to me. It waa enough
to show me tbat you are tbe noblest
and best man tn tbe world, and I love
you wltb my whole heart and soul."
Sim was too happy to speak, so he
stood .silently stroking her hair, absorbing the Joy wltb wblcb the very
air seemed impregnated. After a little
while she snld:
"And now, Sltii, can you ever forgive me after all 1 have made you Buffer?"
"Forgive you. Loueesy"" be exclaimed. "Ood koows I never bad a bard
thought for you an never blamed you
for anything lo my life."
"No, but for all that, Blm, I was
wicked."
"You was not to blame. Wbat yon
done you couldn't belp. You was not
to blame oo* bit"

She nestled ber head on his shoulder
nnd drew a long sigh of happy relief.
"I kuow now," she said, "that I

Some tbere were wbo watched this

curiosity, some who watched It wltb

or the state prison awaited him. but
in r-plte of thnt they would have deprived htm of tbe happiness of tbls

Snm Morgan wns rejoiced, yet trou
bled He was nappy to see Siiu uud
I.ouImi Joiued In love, but he. too, remembered tbe future and what tt likely held for Sim. Turning to I'ap Sampson, be whispered:
"I'd give the world If Blm wos only
fri'e. It seems so bard to take him
from bis wife uow."
"Sim's Innocent," Pnp replied, "an
I don't b'lleve he'll have to suffer."
"I wish 1 could b'lieve lhat. Pap, but
I cau't, I don't see no reason for

"I'll hope to the Inst, Sam. reason or

punty to know whnt It Is."
"Mebby wo'll know right soon now,
for I see 'em a-comln."
Presently   tbe   squire   entered   the
room, followed closely by Jason Roberts and  Hleks.    The squire looked
very solemn, and bis face wns almost
sail.    Illeks was quiet and Impassive,
but Jnson wns smiling all over.   The
squire wulked to his seat, and Hicks
followed nud snt near him.   Neither of
lliein spoke to anybody.   Jason, however, stopped long enough to whisper
a word to Sim.   What tbat word was
no oue knew, but they ull saw that It

"Madunie, leave the matter entirely

When thoy reached the frontier and
the ordeal was at hand, Thorwald
walked up to the most prominent functionary and, taking blm aside, bad a
few words with blm. The lady ln the
meantime sauntered slowly up . and
down the platform with a pleasant air
of waiting till tbe mere form bad beeu
compiled with.
Suddenly ber henrt fell. The officer

her with a determined nir.

to his college, and he knew lt would
lose witbout him. At any rate, there
was a consultation on Thanksgiving
eve, and when the boys appeared from
behind locked doors it was announced
thut there had been a mistake about
Bannnrd's heart trouble and he would
tnke his place ln the team next day.
Everything went straight enough till
near the end of the first balf. Bannard
shouldered the principal work, as be
had always done, and Yale had scored
more points than Harvard, but toward
the end of tho half Bannard began
to look queer and let Sampson of
Harvard right past htm with tbe ball,
thereby losing a touchdown. Sampsoa
kicked the goal and tied the game.
After the uext lineup Baonaid during
• scrimmage fell over in a faint, and
that let Harvard In for another touchdown and a goal. Bannard waa carried off the field.
Well, It began to get dark, but wae
oot so dark when the men lined uf
again but tbat I could see Bannard ln
position. But somehow be looked tall*
er than usual, and tbere was a peculiai
motion about him that I bad never noticed before. After a balf hour of tbe
second half all one could see of tbe
players was a lot of dark figures on a
dark ground. Bannard's tall frame
loomed up above the rest like the specter ef the Brocken. Great guns, how
he did play I He waa at the front, at
the "Sank, Io every scrimmage, la
short, he was carrying the game far
better than he had ever done before.
Then came that celebrated run lo
which be dodged six men and, unguard
ed, carried the ball over the line twenty
yards In front of his nearest follower
for a touchdown. I watched to see blm
kick bis goal, and what was my sur-
frige te see another man do It for blm.
asked what It meant and was told
tbat he bad gone under again.
The game now was tied. When the
-pen lined up again, I watched for
Bannard. Sure enough, he was there,
and after tbe kickoff did the same astonishing work as before. He scored
two touchdowns, but by this time It
was so dark that 1 could not see who
kicked them. However,* tbey both failed, oo account of the darkness, I suppose, leaving Tale ahead to the game.
Before aoy more point* could be
scored Bannard suddeoly disappeared
from tbe field, and a substitute appeared lo his place, a slow, bungling fellow,
wbo lost for his college enough points
to put Harvard again eveo with Yale.
There remained but five minutes of
the three-quarters of an hour allowed
for the balf. At the kickoff Bannard,
wbo waa In his placo, Jumped fully tea
feet, caught the ball aud ran wltb tt
straight through the Harvard lines.
It haa been said tbat no human belag
could bave got through tbat Una as It
was placed. Every gap was closed.
One Harvard man swears that Bannard passed blm and as be seized the
giant around the waist he seised air.
Another declares that the mas wasn't
Bannard at all, though he was enough
like bim to deceive his own mother.
Be tbls aa lt may. tbe game was won
for Yale. I waited to see Bannard kick
for goal, but waited ln vain. Somebody
told me that It was so dark be couldn't
see tbe posts and that tbo game wae
won anyway for Yale. There was a
hubbub among the players of both
Bides, who were huddled In two groups

them. Harvard man, shouted "Foull"
and I ,iw the Yale captain go to him
and shake bis fist ln his face, but 1
could not hear what he aaid for tbe

Wbat do you suppose I saw In tbe
