Trial,
Well, tho agony is over, and the
"famous 34" will not appear on tiie
city voters' list, Mayor York and C.
O'Brien were in attendance at tlie
court, and what they Raw and heard
is told in tlie .Miner of Tuesday, to
wit and to tlie points
The application of tlio now famous
31 of Slocan to have their names
placed on the list of voters of tiiat
city, was heard in chambers yesterday by his honor Judge Form
and their application refused.
The names of the applicants had been
omitted by .Mayor Yoi;k in revising
the votoTs' list, and on their behalf
VV. A. Ualliher applied for an order
from the countv court Judge, under
section 12 of thc Municipal Elections
Act, to whom appeal may ba taken,
direct ins; that their names lw inserted. The refusal was based on tlio
preliminary objections raised, 80 that
the general question of tlie lights in
joint ownership was not touched upon
R. S. Lennie, who opposed the application, argued that though tlie ap
plicants mav be property owners thev
were not entitled to vote under ub-
section (a) of section (i of tlie ait, un
less they were also assessed owners on
the assessment roll of the city. Tlie
assessment roll used as a basis fir the
lirst election was tlie assessment roll
prepared by the provincial government. f.r th,* area now included in
the city of Slocan; the council had
u»t pre* | ni red one t-ub-equ.-iilly fir
1901, -t nd imbed hid no power to d"
so. The names of thi) applicants nor
being* on that roll.thnj could no: now
ii * tho assessed owners and had tin
I cum standi to be placed on the *>;.*<1
li.,t.
Mr.Galliiicr contended (hat the
municipality of Slocan had prepared
Ull .-i*w!\-j.-i:iciit roll ill 1.101, and r-eur
'lit notices and had called a 0 itU'l i i
revision. The previous year's roll,
whieh had been prepared by tiie pro
vincial government, could not be l i
ken as the assessment roll of tho city
of Sloean. The roll for 1902 was prepared in 1901, which, while illegal
i'or the purpose of collecting taxes,
was the proper and valid one for basing the voters' list for 1902 on.
lie also contended lhat, these were
tlie parties chargeable •*—Itti the'axes
on the property, and could not nave
been charged with the taxes because
none had been levied.
Mr Lennie's answer to this was
that the list fu* 1908 coiihl not be a
list for 1901, and that tlie only assessment roll for the city of Sloean was
the provincial assessment roll.
His honor in dismissing th,* application, said the ass ssinenr rill of thc
provincial government vas. by virtue of the Slocan Incorporation Act,
section 8, the roll upon which the assessed owners of laud were to vote.
The aet also makes other provision
fs;r preparing a list of voters. Section
I of chapter 7 ol the act of 1900,
amending section 0, chapter 8, provides that the assessment roll of a
municipality tor thc vear preceding
the holding of an election shall be the
basis upon which the list ol person 8
entitled to vote shall be prepared.
The question arises, what i*. tiie basis
of the voters lis', for th.' coming elec
lion ? It appeared 11 him that then-
is only one answer, namely, the as
Sessmeni roll of lhe year preceding,
which in this case   is  the provincial
government assessment roll, and the
names had not been improperly omitted. Tho application is therefore
dismissed.
In this ease the 31 applicants had
entered into an agreement to purchase two Iota assessed at $60 each,
nnd on Nov. lis applied to be put on
the voters' list as assessed owners li
is calculated that at ths- usual rate of
taxation, the amount ot taxes payable by each would be Ies* than one
cent.
Peter Schonberg applied to be put
on the voters' list as a license holder.
lie. had been an alien when the list
wns prepared, but. had been natural
i/.ed on December 21st. ln this case
his honor held that the nanu* had
been properly omitted from the list.
Edward Haley also applied to be
put on t!iu list as a property holder,
but as all the realty he owned was a
shack,his application was withdrawn
by Mr. Galliher,

There, has been a report in circulation that tlio Neepawa group, Ten
Mile, had shut down, but such Is not
the case, nor i* there the slightest
intention of tiro management to stop
working. Things are looking too
rosy just now for any such idea as
that to be entertained. It is only
about a month sine F.W. Polehamp-
ton commenced work under his bond,
but the. results have been marvelous.
They may bo judged from the fact
that Manager Sandiford stated Tuesday that he would ship four cars of
ore this month, nnd that bv the time
the bond was up, the property would
have paid for itself out of the ore to
be shipped The smelters have promised a ?7 rate on the ore.
Sixty-five feet havo been driven
on the ore chute where first encountered in tlie No. 2 workings, opening
up a stupe of ore 2h feet wide, whloh
will ship at not less than 80 oz. In
the face of the drift is seven feet of
mixed ore, .which is a most encouraging exposure, Just above the Enterprise wagon road is another opening, with six f.et of mineralized matter in sight Ten men are working
in three shifts, running in 80 feet of
a crosscut, so as to reach the main
drift without having to pass over the
dangerous slide, last week's experi
enoos having proven that way too
pei'Hiius. The crosscut will be finished in xt week and then attention
will be paid to shipping.

Of the English companies operating
in this country, only two paid dividends last year. One was the Ymir
and thc other was the Bosun, New
Denver. Tho latter property has had
phenomenal success and is in shape
to continue on a paying basis for
years to come. An average of 100
tons a month has been the record of
the mine, affording sufficient funds to
cover all development, erect bunk
house, oflices, blacksmith shops and
ore houses at a general cost, of $25, •
(XX); and also to pay lo the shareholders live per cent of a profit for the
year just closed,
Last month ISO tons of ore was
shipped, being the highest record yet
reached. Twenty tons was sent out
Tuesday,and 40 tons more was ready
to go out. The mine is in fine shape,
having ore in all the main workings,
in places it is 2i feet wide, but the
average is ten inches. Thc average
net returns from tlie ore, which all
goes to Trail, is 120 oz silver and 45
per cent lead. With an ample equipment provided, the Bosun will pay
heavy dividends In the future.

Sir, —In the farming and ranching
country of Wt stern Canada there are
in anv largo stttds, Bocks and herds
some of them containing as many as
lOOJOto 12,003 head, the property
ol'one man or firm. Thore arc also
many studs, herds and flocks of from
50 to* 1UO0 head,
In order to improve and maintain
the qualitv of their stock, it seems
accessary for the owners to buy annually pure-bred breeding males, and
sometimes a few females. Heretofore a number of these have been
bought yearly fr. m Cam-dinn breed*
ns. and also from Americans, while
many others have been purchased in
Grent Britain. Not nearly as many
pure bred males are purchased annually as --h mid be, because ranch
s-rs have found it difficult to obtain
what thev want at a price at' which
they oonsldor ir would pay them to
buy. Many, therefore, are now using range bred grade males. In
Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and the
Maritime Provinces also, more pun-
bred sires should be used than are at j
present.
lu I'l'derto enable the ranchers and
other buyers to more readily obtain
what thoy want, and to bring buyer
and seller directly together, the Dominion  department of agriculture
decided   to   issue  a directory  of the
Canadian breeders ofpurc*bred Btock
in each province, arranged alphabet
lealiv, giving suitable data concerning each stud, herd and flock. Cir-
eulars were sent out to all the breed-

About a dozen mirth-seekers gathered at a certain bachelor's cabin for
a good time, a few nights ago, and
they certainly had it. They found a
largo table heavily ladon with good
things, and at each end was a turkey
prepared iu tho best of style, whifo
in the centre was a large dish of
cranberry sauce. Then there was
pie, cake, "puddin'"ai.d every thing
that was good. After supper the table was cleared off and put away and
dancing commenced lt was kept up
for a few _oura and then another
supper was prepared. Tho turkeys
were finished and then the visitors
went home, deciding that if ever they

High Returns Fj*om Ilisniptosi.
N. P. McNaught, of Silverton, has
received his returns from the last
shipment of ore from the Hampton,
the figures being remarkably high.
Four ions of the lot yielded 7C2^ oz to
the ton and the balance 310 oz. For
the three small shipments made by
the Hampton last summer tlio average returns were 7.J0 oz per ton, making the banner record for the division.
The Hampton not only paid for its
new buildings and development last
summer, but gave a dividend besides
from its shipments.

HUMBLE
HERO
BY  THOMAS  P. MONTFORT
Copyright. 1901 by Thomas P. Montfort
"Nat'rnlly she would be, Mlrandy.
Yes. slr-ee!" Pap pntised for quite
awhile, during which time he chewed
bla tobacco vigorously, showing thnt
he was engaged In earnest thought
Then he added slowly: "Yes, slr-ee!
Nat'rnlly sbe would be; nat'rally she
would be."
"Can't you see no wny out for her,
Pap?" Mrs. Sampson asked.
"1 wns Jest n-thlnkln. Mlrandy. 1
bnln't no grent ml mini tlrm for Mnry
Mann, an I guess thar ain't mnny ns
bns. hut for nil tbnt she's n woman, nn
a wldder womnn nt Hint. Wonder when
ber wheat'll do to cut."
"Tomorry, she said."
"Waal. It won't nigh do to let tlmt
wheat go to waste; so, as tbar don't
seem to be nothln else for It. I guess I
better go out this evenln an gather np
a handful of men an tnke 'em over
tbar tomorry an cut It for her."
Mrs. Sampson's face brightened at
once. She was one of those grent smiled plain people wbo can never bear to
aee any one In trouble without wanting to move heaven and earth to relieve bis distress.
"Are you shore you can git tbe men
to go?" abe asked.
"Lord, yesl Yes, slr-ee! Thar's Jo-
fton Roberts. Jason nn me has It up
an down sometimes, an I reckon the
chief enjoyment of bin life Is to take
■Idea ag'ln me ln ever'thlng I say; but,
my land, that ain't nothln, nn when It
comes right down to the plncb Jason
will sw'nr by me. Yes; Jason'll go nn
Sam Morgan nn Ebenezer Sparks an a
lot of Uie othera."
"Do you reckon tbey won't want to
charge ber for their work, though?"
"Lord, Mlrandy, you don't know
tbem fellers shorelyl Charge a woman,
tn a wldder woman at that, for belpbi
oer out of a plncb! Land! You jest
let Mary Mann give us a good dinner,
an we'll bave all the pay we want
We'll even go to tbe length of furnish-
in our Jug of liquor If we can git a boy
to go to the still after it, an I guess we
aborely can."
Pap Sampson waa busier tbat afternoon than be bad been for a Jong time.
He bunted around till be found six
good men to accompany blm to Mrs.
Mann's farm. Tben be hunted up cradles, and Inst, but not least, be hunted
a boy to go after a Jug of whisky.
"Mought Jest as well try to git 'long
witbout cradles as without a Jug of
liquor," be aaid to himself as he pottered about getting everything In readiness. "A getherln without a Jug
wouldn't be no getberlu at all."
Pap was In great spirits the next
nprnlng when he marshaled bis force
ten the wheatfleld and got the cradles
tw going. He hopped about as spry as a
boy and gave orders like a general. He
even grasped a cradle and prepared to
lead the way with the first swath, but
Jason took tbe cradle out of his bands
and wouldn't let him.
"No. Pop." Jnson said, "we can't
bave that Thar's plenty of us /onager
men bere. You jest set down In the
shade somewhar an take It easy."
Pap flared up with rescntmeut In an
Instant
"Me set down In tbe shade!" be cried.
"Have you got a notion, Jason Roberta.
tl.at I'm so no 'count an played out aa
all tbat?"
"Why, Lord, Pap. of course not!" Jason replied. "I didn't say nothln like
that, did I?"
"Nor you better not sny notbln like
It If you don't want me to show yon in
awuy you won't forglt that I ain't nigh
played out. Mebby you don't li'lleve It.
Jason Roberts, but If you feel like try in
it I'll guarantee to whup you in two
shakea of a sheep's tall till you won't
know who you are."
"Oh. that's all right, Pap. I ain't
wantin to tight you."
"Co'se you nln't, Jason, 'cause you
nln't no fool, an yo*u know It ain't snfe
to fool with me. Humph! Set down Id
the shade an rest'. My land, Jason Huberts. I've cut more wheat In ray time
an never grunted at It than you'll ever
cut If you live to Ve a thousan' years
old. Set down In the shade an rest!
Lord!   Slch talk makes me mad."
Pap didn't sit down either. Though
they denied blm the privilege of wielding a cradle, be found an opportunity
to bnsy himself by putting the wheat
soring lhat I'ap wns determined to do
Bonietiiiug, Jnson encouraged blm iu it.
"Lord!" hi* said, with a wink nt the
othera. "1'iip'i* jest fell right In whnr
be |iliiinl> belong!. Anybody knows
enough to swing a cradle or bind up
wheat but thar's pow'ful blamed few
who kuow bow to set up a wheat
shock so's It won't spile If It rains.
Guess Pap's 'bout the only mnn here
thnt can do It."
This pleased Pap nnd fully reconciled blm to his work, nnd he snld nothing more nbout wnntlng to swing a
cradle.
In the afternoon he began to go to
the shade pretty often, ninl each time
he weut he tarried longer than be bad
the time before. Finally Sam Morgan
noticed this and Inconsiderately re-
m 11 iked:
"Guess you're glttln putty tired, ain't
you. Pap?"
"Tired! Me tired!" Pap exclaimed.
"You beam me sny nny word 'bout
belli tired, Sam Morgan?"
"No, but i notice yon goln to tbe
shmle a right smart more than you
done this moruln."
"What If you do? 'Tnln't 'cause I'm
tired, but jest 'cause It's so mls'nble
hot,"
The men hnd all come out to the
simile to rest, nnd presently Sim Bnnks
ciiine down across the field nnd Joined
tbem.    He had been working In  his
own field Just on the other side of a
fence. He saluted them with:
"Howdy, boys?   Howdy, Pap?"
"Howdy, Sim?" they snld In return.
"How you glttln 'loug?" he asked.
"Oh, all  right  I  guess," Jason replied.   "We'll git through before night
If nothln happens."
"I'm sorry you all had to cut this
wheat," Sim said after a pause, "when
I'd done agreed wltb Mls'us Mann thnt
I'd do It I didn't reel that I ort to
keep my promise, though, after all
them things she's been a-sayln of late."
"You done Jest right, Sim," Pap
Sampson announced unhesitatingly,
"au nobody cau't blame you a bit.
When Mary Maun Interfered like she
did to make trouble betwixt you an
Loueesy, you wn'n't under no obligations to do notbln for ber no more, not
a hnnd's turn."
"'Tnln't thnt Php, thnt held me

'em room to say more, an—an 'cause I

Sim paused for n moment, but no one
spoke, and presently he went on more
earnestly.
"I don't like to bave hard feelln's
ag'ln nobody," he snld, "nn specially
not ag'ln a woman, but Mls'us Mann
didn't hnve no enll to go nn do the wny
she done, for she told a plumb p'iut
blank lie when she narrated It around
thnt I come to her bouse that night tin
made love to her. Lord, I never

no more thnn 1 thought of stick In my

It on a stack of Bibles as blgb as they
could be piled. I bate Mary Mann
wuss'n I hate the plzcnost snake that
crawls, for she's a plumb liar, an sbe
knows It"
Sim paused again, and this time Pap
Sampson spoke.
"Sim." be said reassuringly, "don't
none of us b'lleve notbln ag'in you that
Mary Mann bns told, nary a word.
Nor, tot my part 1 hain't a-gwine to
believe It not If she wns to sw'nr to It

"No, but Loueesy b'lleves It." Sim
replied sadly, "an I'd ruther anybody
else'd b'lleve It than her. My land,
looks like she ort to know It ain't so
an that I wouldn't think of doln no

somebody to put 11 bullet bole through

what I say. If ever any man made love
to my wife, an I knowed It, the minute
I laid eyes on that man I'd shoot him
through the henrt jest like I would a

A painful silence followed these
words, for no one offered to speak.
The men exchnnged a significant
glance among themselves, then looked
at Sim In serious thoughtfulness. To
them bis throat signified more, much
more, than he suspected, lt Impressed
Itself so Indelibly on their minds tbat
they never forgot It. and on an nfter

Q. M. BROWN'S CAMPAIGN.
Opp>arsi by Ur. Coiian Doyle,  tlie  Novelist—tola of Specclisiiiskliig.
Mr. Conan Doyle's unsuccessful effort to attain political honors at
the lost general election in Great
Britain is of particular interest to
Canadians by reason of the fact that
the successful Liberal candidate was
Mr. George M. Ill-own, son ot the
late Hon. George Drown of Tnr*rsTiU>.
Tho constituency was Central Edinburgh, and Mr. Uuyic was ine li.ei-
al-Unionist candidate, lie is described ns highly popular in Edinburgh,
where bo took his course in medicine
and also obtained bis lirst success in
literature. As a candidate the novelist made so many speeches that in
one of the last of tbem he said: "I
have talked and talked all the week
till I am sick of hearing my own
voice! I made ten speeches yesterday and havo to make as many moro
to-day." On some days he began
his speech-making beforo breakfast
and kept it up till midnight. Ho
spoke in tho streets and squares,   in
several breweries, in an opera house,
in a "literary institute," in front of
business establishments or workshops
and wherever he could attract      the
notico of any group of listeners.   Ho
had to submit, too, to that    torture
known us "heckling" — or. in otber
words,  was resiuired to answer      all
those searching ciuestiqna — political,
moral or metaphysical — which aleo*
tors  aro fond  of  putting  to      every
candidate.       On  a   number  of  occasions he had to confess that ho could
not    answer     tlio "hecklers."        "I
really do not know," be said in one
case. And:  "I favor your suggestion;
but don't see where tho money is to
coino from."    "We ought to go very
slowly;"     "I agree with you;      but
then—;" "I am not a jingo; yet, after all;" "I sa.ni a young politician;"
und so on.    In referring to    British
performances abroad he is    reported
as saying:
"Why should we be so very aggressive! Wo should not rush into every
foreign enterprise. We hnve been thc
policeman of tbo world too long.
There is not a dancing Dervish or a
mad Mullah, or uuy kins! of religious
fanatical lunatic, but Great Britain
and Great Britain's army are sent
to put him down. We never get any
thanks for it. We do the hard and
dirty work of the world, while tho
other nations stand round and jeer
at us."
None of tho numerous speeches of
the novelist could be called
"eloquent." He did not at any time
let his imagination loose. Ho never
was in thc least extravagant, but always very much in earnest. As a
speaker, too, he seemed to be wholly
different from himself as a writer.
All his speeches were plain and hard
ns possible, and he treated all questions in the most practical manner,
or in what may be called tho "House
of Commons Manner."
It was Just before the day In which
his ambition to enter Parliament
was blighted that he said: "After my
experience of r#i Edinburgh election
I am not in favor of anything that
ond run."
could possibly entail upon me a see-
By one allusion only was he offended, and this charge was quite us annoying to Mr. Brown as to his opponent. During the Boer war. when
Mr. Copan Doyle wos in South Africa, ho served for u time in the hospitals; and, when someone said that
ho had rendered service "on business
principles," Doyle issued a public
protest as follows:
"It is not a point which I could
have raised; but since this stnteincnt
hns been made, will you permit me
to say that I have never received a
shilling for those services which I
very gladly jjave my country. Far
from profiting by them, my expedition cost mo £200. I am sorry to
intrude theso personal details, but
the point was not of my raising."

I am one of the sergeants in charge
of the central police station nt night,
nnd during tho several years I hnve
held the position somo strange tblngs
hnve occurred. One of them, and one
thnt attracted general attention at the
time, was the way the murderer of the
Bolton family wnlked In on me one
night. A family of five people named
Boltou living In Missouri was slaughtered one ulght, and, though every
effort was made to find the murderer,
he got clean off. Two years later, one
night at 11 o'clock, a tramp entered
tbe station and queried of me:
"If 1 will surrender myself, will you
send out for a good luncheon? I have
hnd nothing to ent for two dnys."
"Whnt crime nre you guilty of?" I
asked without much Interest
"Murder. 1 nm the one whs» killed
the Boltons out west."
"Yes, I'll lock you up and give you a
luncheon," 1 said, and I took blm down
stairs, placed him In a cell and then
ordered a lunch for him from a night-
hawk wagon.    I hardly believed blm
guilty of any crime whatever, but bla
face betrayed his hunger, and I felt
Charitably Inclined.   Before I went oft
duty ln the morning I told tbe fellow
thnt I should have him sent up as a
vagrant, nud It was then thnt he told
me his story tn such words that I could
no longei doubt him.   The result you
know.    He  was  the   murderer  sure
enough, nnd he returned to Missouri to
be tried and buug for his brutal crime.
One night a year or so Inter as 1 was
eating my lunch at midnight nn old
womnn who ran a laundry entered In
an excited state and nsked me If there
was such a street In the city as Desoto.
I told her there was.   lt was a narrow,
wretched street In the toughest quarter
of the town.   Tben she nsked me If
there was a cheap  hotel called  the
Lincoln House on the street   Again I
answered ln the ufllrmatlve.   It was a
resort of bad meu and bad been raided
several times.
"Now, let me tell you," she continued,
growing more excited as she talked.
"Soon after I went to bed tonight I
had a dream of being on Desoto street
located n conlynrd. n cooper shop, a
heap of building material and other
things which Hho bod seen lu her
dreams. She described tbe hotel ns of
brick with n green front She said
there were eight bedrooms ou the second floor nnd that the doors nnd ether
woodwork were painted n slate color.
I felt cousldernble Interest lu tbe matter before the reporters got away anil

and ordered him to render any assistance he could.

the reporters did not reach  It till 2

any Irritation.
The   Hippopotamus.
Next to the elephant tbe bngest beast
In point of bulk aud weight Is the hippopotamus. Of this animal Sir Samuel

to room No. 7. he declared that there!
wasn't a guest on that floor, and before j
tbey bad carried their point the officer
had to mnke n prisoner of blm.   The
raw brought out half a do-sen toughs,
and bad not the reporters been armed I
they would have bad a hot time of It. j
When room No. 7 was reached, they !
expected to find It empty, ns the latin- {
dress bad seen the dead body borne ,
down stairs; but, to their aintm-tnent,
the figure of a man was lying on tho
bed.   He was fully dressed, and for a
mluute afler tbey entered he gnve no
sign of life. Then he sighed and groaned and tossed about as If In great pnln.
There were tho stand and the glass
and the whisky, and one had only to
sniff at tbe contents of tbe glass to feel
eure that It w.i.-s u cr*-*-* of drugging.
A doctor was sent for, aud for the next
ten hours he did uot leave the patient
for a mluute.   It was a close call for
the guest, but he flually began to rally
and was taken to a hospital.   It was
three or four days before be could tell
to man, being easily provoked aud assailing the object of Its resentment with
reckless fury. It can upset the largest
boat and In oue Instance perforated
wltb Its tusks tbe iron bottom of .Sir
Samuel's steamer, causing a dangerous
leak. Tbe flesh of the hippopotamus Is
always palatable, and wben the animal
Is young It Is delicious. The skin makes
excellent turtle soup. Tbe tusks were
formerly more valuable than those of
the elephant, being In request by dentists because tbey never turn yellow.

The first commission of Oencral Sir
Gordon Drummond, a soldier whose
enreer is of interest to Canada for
the active part ho took in the war
of 1812, is dated September 21st,
1780. His promotion from the
first, however, was very rapid. In
17D4 he received his Lieutenant-Colonelcy. Between this date and his
arrival in Canada as Lieutenant-
General of the Canadian forces, in
August, 1813, he had served in Holland under the Duke of York, in
Egypt under Abercrombic, and in
tho West Indies under Sir Eyre
Coote. Sir George Prevost was the
first in command in Canada, but the
winter campaign of 1813-14 wns especially characterized by the operations curried out under Ilruiiuiiond.

Despite Medical Treatment, He Ber

Uo Could Scarcely Sign His Nairn-
Mr. James Dauphine, of East
Bridgewater, or sis he is better
known oh ex-Councillor Dauphine,
has been a sick man for the past
thn*.. years. Ills health gradually
forsook him, until by ileyroes iho was
(creed to give up doing all kinds of
work. He consulted a physician and
took a large (quantity of medicine,
but it did him no good and hu gradually grew weaker and weaker. His
duties as a magistrate necessitated
his doing much writing, and being
an excellent panuian in his days of
good health, it came very hard to
him when his hand shook so much
he could scarcely keep it steady
enough to sigu his name. Hi* daughter, seeing his deplorable condition,
advised him to try Dr. Williams'
Piak Pills, and after a bit of coaxing ha was induced to try them.
There wus no noticeable change in
his condition until he had started
taking the third box. I-'rom that
on the improvement was rapid. He
grow stronger every day, his appe-
tits* incrctised, tlie weariness u»il las-
situdo departed from his limbs,
some of the lustre of his youth returned to his eye, and by the time
five boxes were used, Mr. Dauphine
f.'lt a new mua. The weight of years
and the burden of sickness have
rsillesl from his shoulders, his hands
are now steady and his pen can rim
n-s rapidly as ever. He attributes
bin cure to the ministration of a
good wife and Dr. Williams' Pink
I'il'.s. Mr. Dauphins* is 73 years of
age. but fs-els us young and vigorous
as he did years ngo, and is ever
ready to praise in the warmest
terms the health-giving qualities of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
friend of the weak ami ailing. They
surpass all olher medicines in Uieir
tonic, strengthening qualities, and
make weak and despondent people
bright, active nnd healthy. These
pills are sold by ail dealers in medicine, or can be had by mail, postpaid, at 5d csnts per box. or six
boxes for 82.50, by addressing the

YEAR8 AGO   BY   DODD'S
KIDNEY PILLS.
Further Proof of the Permanancy of
the Cures ICfTocted By This Great
Remedy—A most Convincing Confirmation of an Interesting Statement Published in the Plattsville
Echo in May, 1698.
PlatUiville, Ont.. Dec. 16— (Special)— Koine three and a half years
ugo, the Plaltaville Echo, tho local
ntTWOpaper, published quite an extended account of a most miraculous
cure of a well kaown and highly respected lady, Mrs. J. Barnott, who
had been extremely ill for years, and
who claimed to be iserinanently cur-
sd by tiie use of Dodd's Kidney
Pills. This good lady, according to
her own statement, had been a physical wreck, with nervousness, rheumatism in the left arm, pains in the
small of the buck, up the spinal column and back of the head, through
the eyes, left side of the body and
occasionally the right side. She had
no appetite and could not. sleep at
night. The \Ay sic inns had given
her up and in this pitiful and hopeless condition, Dodd's Kidney Pills
found her and completely restored
her to good health without an ache
or pain. Her appetite returned as
bar general good health improved.
Slus used in all but twelve boxes of
Dodd's Kidney Pilla.
This was in the spring of 18D8,
and today Mrs. Barnett states positively and in the strongest oud most
grateful terms that the cure Dodd's
Kidney Pills brought her three and a
half years ago was absolute and permanent ; that she is today stronger
and better than she had been for
ys*ars before taking the pills. Nothing could be moro convincing l*han
this good womaa's plain and truthful statement, and it proves beyond
doubt the lasting character of the
cures effected by Dodd's Kidney Pills.

off.
Yet a little while and the provincial Conservatives will arise, in their
.might to withstand Liberal aggres-
' elon,   When that happy moment arrives the Independent*, will have a
picnic*     ____________
The customs revenue of tlie Domin-
. $on for the month of December showed a total of £2,509,015, as against
$2,312,410 for the same month last
year, an increase of $258,004, For
the six months ending December 31
the customs revenue was $15,804,092,
compared with $14,013,051 for lhe
•same time last year, or an increase of
$1,251,640.
Coast papers have it thnt a meeting
ofthe members of the legislature op-
, posed to Premier Dunsmuir will be
Jield at New Westminster en the 15th
Inst., to select a leader and outline a
programme for tho approaching session.   The choice of leader lies bo
vtween E. V. Bodwell,  Liberal, and
Richard McBride, Conservative.-  In
view ofthe efforts being made to introduce party lines in the province,
ft is hard to imagine a successful and
perfect unification of forces against
.Dunsmuir.
Mining men agree in tlie opinion
that tho day of the dry ore belt is
here, because of the weakened condition of the lend and copper market.
No prospect of disaster is to be (apprehended in this division, because ofthe
eilicions nature of the ores. Not. a
singlo property now working will
close down and there are assurances
that several new ones will start up
in the spring. Mining men operat
ing in thc camp assert that much
capital will come this way next season. Dry ore properties arc growing
jn demand and no likely prospect
will be overlooked.
.Prosperity in mining has not been
, limited to Kootenay and Yale. For
1901 the Vancouver Island coal mines
had an output of 1,331,350 tons, of
•which 821,945 toii3 was sent abroad.
Thore was also exported 4700 tons of
coke. During the samo period the
metalliferous mines of the Island
shipped 17,733 tons of ore from Che-
niainns, Ladysmith and Comox.
■Wh.sta tremendous advancement has
been made in mining in British Columbia in the last five years, the
whole province seemingly being ore-
huge treasure vault. Who is he to
guage the expansion and output for
tho next five years, Go where you
will and a more promising spot than
British Columbia cannot be found on
earth.
Oa Jan. 31 the Liberals of tho province meet In Vancouver for the pur-
poso of organization and to decide up
on introducing party, lines in local
politics.   But the family is not altogether happy in their relations one to
the other.   A nasty little break has
occurred at Nanaimo, and now the
. Vancouver association has seen lit to
enter a protest against, certain uc
^tlons of the provincial executive relative to the coming convention. Senator Templeman, as president, has
-been forced to issue a strong letter in
reply, which cannot bo   considered
encouraging.   Then thero is thc lire*
' pressible Joe Martin to reckon in the
gamo, and he is not to bo downed.
Tho situation presages trouble for the
politiclaua.
