been made to secure tlm services of
the Denver bund, ensuring an abundance of music for the day. The indications arc that a big crowd of visitors will be here from the other Slscan towns, and the C.P.R. is doing

Sawmill Men Arrive.
Last Thursday J. II. Lavallee and
Joseph Chew, head sf thc syndicate
owning the sawmill atthe head of the
lake, arrived in from Orillia, Ont.,
accompanied by Wm. Tudbope, of
the same place. They were waited
on by the mayor and aldermen and
the inducements the city had to offer
tn get the sawmill located here were
laid before them. They were then
taken to see the proposed sits in the
bay, and they were much pleased
with the location, particularly as
they were informed thev could get
more room if desired. The visitors
expressed themselves as well satisfied
with everything and stated they
would give a definite answer about
establishing their whole plant here
in a day or so. Next day they went
up to look over the situation at the
head of the lake. The party was
then going on to Vancouver, where
the syndicate purposes establishing
another large plant.

Slocan has had a number of excitements lately, but the most satisfying
one of the banch was caused by the
visit of Gentry Bros.' trained animal
show on Monday. Sunday evening
more people saw the show come in on
the barges than went to church, and
the town hummed a little. Il was
the first tented affair te come here
and the populace were delighted.
Unfortunately only one performance
was given, thereby disappointing a
big crowd of Denver and Silverton
people, who were coming down on
the evening boat. As it was, quite a
number arrived at noon. The street
parade of the show was exceedingly
good, while the performance, given
by the animals nnlv, was splendid and
well worth the price of admission.
One thing about the Gcntrys: they
do as they advertise, put up a clean
performance, and csrry out their
business tran actions in a gentlemanly spirit. 	
l.alsar Legislation.
The provincial legislature passed
many enactments during the late
session affecting workingmen. The
bills include: compensation te workmen, trades union act, deception of
workmen act, immigration act ex-
eluding Japanese, act respecting employment on subsidized works or by
companies requiring public lands
whereby Orientals are excluded, and
an act ensuring fair wages on pubic
works and frnm companies. Other
important bills were: amendments
to the municipal elections act, giving
one man one vote; also in the provincial elections law, requiring applicant's affidavit instead of declaration to get on the voter's list.

Daring the week the camp was
visited by Geo. McLean and A.
Stuart, two monied men hailing from
Milwaukee. As a result of their visit
they havo secured an option to purchase the Monterey group of three
claims from N. F. McNaught, Leo
Doiron and liobt. Milloy. The claims
arc located on the Springer slope of
the Ten Mile divide and close to ths
Hampton. It is stated the sum involved is $40,000 and that the property will be worked witb eight or
IC men during the season.
The claims in the group ars the
Monterey, Bancroft and Oregon and
arc but year-old locatiens. Last year
while doing assessment the owners
uncovered a very rich chute of ore,
the discovery of which led to thc
deal. The discovery was made in
an open cut and consisted of a six-
foot ledge, carrying two pronounced
paystrcaks, sue being fonr inches
wide and the other eight. The ore
is a sulphide and carries copper
values as well. Ore from the smaller
paystreak gave 410 and 500 oz of
silver, while the larger streak carried
values of 80 oz. From the balance
ef the ledge an average assay ef 40
to GO oz was obtained. After the discovery a number of other open cuts
were made, exposing the ore chute
for 300 feet, and the ledge has been
provs-n across three claim-*. Thc

Fifteen men were let out from ths
Arlington on Friday and it is possible
the force may be farther reduced.
The management is endeavoring to
secure better rates from the Hall
Mines smelter for the treatment of its
ore, claiming that present charges
arc excessive. The silicious character of the Arlington ore makes it a
most desirable fluxing product and it
is in demsnd among the smelters. It
is expected suitable terms will be ar*
rivsd at shortly, when shipments will
bs increased and the forco of men
largely augmented,

A despatch from Victeria says: W.
MacAdams, editor of the Sandon
Paystreak, has been summoned by
the fnll cenrt to appear before It in
Victoria on July 2ml, on a charge of
contempt of court. This arises oat
of a ststemsnt made in the Paystreak
that J. K. Clark, of New Denver,
was unable to got his case against J.
Frank Collom, for a commission for
the sale of the Arlington mine,,on
Springer creek, before tho courts,
owing to Collom's pall.

The bulk of the shipments this
week come from Ten Mile, both the
Neepawa and Enterprise being represented. The latter sent oat 40
tons of ore to the Nelson smelter and
20 tons of concentrates te tbe Trail
works. Trail also secured the 21
tens of ere shipped from the Neepawa,
which now has a credit of four cars
since thc present bonders began operating. From the Arlington 50 tons
only was exported, and the outp. t
will not amount to much until such
times as the smelters give abetter
rate for treatment. The total for the
division to date is 2915 tons.
For 1900 the exports from this division amounted to 2847 tons, made
op from 10 properties. Last year

»«. * >«*«> THE LADY
(Copyright 1900 by Sir Walter Besant.)
"Sir," she salil. "I give you onr mow
chance of retaining the name ami reputation of gentleman. Carry uie back
or else await tlio vengeance of my
friends. 1 warn you solemnly that
murder will be done before I marry
you; understand, Blr, murder of you
or of your confederates or of myself."
She spoke with so much calmness
snd with so much resolution that she
aroused all bis native obstinacy. Besides tt was now too late. Thc news of
the abduction would bo all over Lynn;
he must carry the thing through. He
swore another loud nnd blasphemous
oath. Heavens! How he was punished!  How swiftly and speedily!
Molly stepped out of the chair. Tom
Rising, his hat In hand, ngaln bowed
low. "Madam," he said, "you nre well
advised. Pray let me hand you Into
tbe chat.se."
Sbe made no reply, but, rushing past
him, darted Into the bouse. She stumbled down one step and found herself
In a room where tbe twilight outside
could not penetrate. It was quite
dark. She closed the door behind her
and bolted it, finding a bolt In the
usual place.
Tben she waited a moment, thinking
what she could do next A rustling
and a footstep showed thst she was
not alone.
"Who Is tbere 7" she cried. "Is there
no light T
Sbe heard the striking of flint and
steel; she ssw the sputtering yellow
light of a match, and by its flickering
she discerned an old woman trying to
light a candle —a rushlight In a tin
frame, with holes at the sides.
Molly looked quietly round the room.
A knife lay on the table. She took it
up. It was one of the rougb clasp
knives used by rustics when they eat
tbelr dinners under the hedge. She
stepped forward and took tho light
from tbe old woman's band.
"Quick!" she said. "Wbo ts tn the
"No one except myself. He said the
house was to be kep' clear tonight"
"Can they get In?"
"Tbey can kick the house down If
they like; It's so old and crazy."
"Is there an upper room?"
The old woman pointed to the far
corner. Molly now perceived that the
place was the kitchen, the taproom, the
sitting room and all. A table was In
the middle; a settle was standing beside the empty fireplace; there wns s
bench or two; mugs and cups of wood,
pewter and common ware stood on the
mantelshelf; a side of bacon hung In
tbe chimney. In the corner to which
the old woman pointed was a ladder.
Molly ran across tbe room. At the top
of the ladder tbere wns a square opening large enough for her passage. She
went up and found herself by the dim
rushlight In an upper chamber the floor
of which was covered with flock beds
laid on the boards. Tbere was one
small frame of glass tn tbe roof, a window which was not made to open. The
place reeked with foul air worse than
tbe orlop deck or tbo hold after a voyage.
Down below she heard her captor
kicking at the door. Apparently the
old woman drew back ths bolt, for he
came tn noisily and swearing horribly.
Apparently tbe old woman pointed to
the ladder, or perhaps the glimmer
from the room above guided him. He
came to tbe ladder and tried persuasion.
"Molly, my dear," he cried, "corns
down, come down! I won't harm you.
Upon my honor I will not I want only
■ to put you luto the chaise and carry
, jou off to be married. Molly, you are
the loveliest girl In tho county. Molly,
I say, tbere Is nobody can hold a candle to yon. Molly, I will make you as
happy as the day Is long. Molly, I love
you ten times ss well as that proud
lord, ne will not marry you. There
isn't a man In all tbe company I will
not fight for your sake. Don't think I
will let any other man have you. Confound It, Molly, why don't you answer?"
For now she kept silence. The more
ho parleyed the more time she gained.
Rut she found one or two loose hoards
that bad been used for laying In trestles for the support of the (lock beds.
Sho laid them across the trnpdoor.
There was, bowever, nothing to keep
tbem down.
Then Tom Rising began to swear at
the old woman.
"You fool! You blundering, silly, Jenny ass of a fool! What tlu* devil did
you give her thc candle for?"
"I didn't give It   She took lt."
"Go get another candle, then."
"There are no more candles, master,"
said the old woman In her feeble voice.
"Rlie'H got the only one."
"Mully, If you won't come down, I
shall force my way np."
Still she kept silence.
He took two steps uo tbe ladder and
lifted tbe boards, showing the fingers
of his left hand.    Molly applied her
knlfss  gently,  but  dexterously;  but  It
touched the bone nnd taught him whst
to expect   Ho drew back with a cry of
"Come down," he said, "or It will
be worse for-you.   Come down, I say."
He bad not reckoned on n knits* and
on tbe girl's courage in using lt
"You bave no food up there," bs
went on. "Your wlndosv Is only a light
In the roof looking away from thu road.
No one from T-ynn will come tbls wny.
If they do, tbey will see nothing. You
had better como down. Molly, I shall
watt here for a month. I shall starve
you. out Do you hear? 1 will set Are
to tbe thatch and burn you outl You
shall como down!"
Um mm raved ansl raged. Meantime
tho two chairmen, who were bis ows
servants, stood pole ln hand, one ln
front of the house and one behind, to
prevent sn escape, but this was impossible, because the room, ns you have
beard, had no other window than a
small, square opening in the roof, In
which was fitted a piece of coarse,
common glass.
"Jack," she told nie, "when he talked of setting Ore to the thatch. I confess 1 trembled, because, you see, my
knife would not help me there, and,
Indeed, I think he would have doue it,
because he was like one that has gone
mad with rage. He was like a mad
bull. He stormed; he raged; he cursed
;ind swore; he called me all the names
you ever heard of, sucli mimes as the
sailors call their sweethearts when
they tire In a rage with them, and then
he called me nil the endearing names,
such as loveliest of my sex, fairest
nymph, tenderest beauty. What a
man!   Whnt a man!"
Meantime she made no answer whatever, ami the darkness nnd the silence
ar.d the obstinacy of the girl were driving the unfortunate lover to a kind of
uiudncsss, and 1 know uot what would
have happened.
"Molly," he said, "willy nllly, down
you come. I shall tear down the
thatch. I would burn you out, but I
would not spoil your beauty. I shall
tear down the thatch, and my iuen
shall carry ycru down."
Then Molly made answer.
"I have a knife in my possession. Do
not think thnt I nm afraid to use lt
The first man who lays bands on me I
will kill, whether It la you or your
'•That we shall aee. Look yon, Molly,
you nre only a merchant's daughter,
and I nm a gentleman. Do you think
I value that compared witb marrying
you? Not one whit. When we nre
married, I will buy more laud. I will
le the greatest landowner of the whole
county. Blr Robert will make me sheriff. I will go into parliament. Molly,
lie will make me a peer. Come down,
I say."
Rut she spoke no more.
Then he lost control of himself and
for awhile stamped and swore, threatened und cursed. "You will hnve It,
then? Here, John, go and loo!; for a
ladder. Tin-re's nlways a ladder ln
the back yard. Put lt up agalust the
thatch. Tear it down. Make a hole iu
tlie roof.   Tear off thc whole roof."
The man propped his chair pole
against the door nnd went round to
look for the ladder nud to obey orders.
"So," Molly told nie, "I wns besieged.
Mr. Rising was below, but I had my
knife and he was afraid to venture up
tbe steps. I heard the men clumping
about outside. I heard thi m plant the
ladder and climb up. Now, a countryman who understands a thatch Is able
to tear lt off very quickly, either to
make or mend a hole or to tear dowi*
the roof altogether, and I feared that I
must use my knife seriously. Was ever
woman more barbarously abused?
Well. I waited. Ry thc quick tearing
away of the straw I saw that the fellow on the ladder knew how to thatch
a rick or a cottage. In n few mtnutes
there would bo a hole big enough for
half a dozen men to enter. Jack," her
cheek flushed and her eye brightened,
"God forgive me, but I made up my
mind the moment that man stepped
within the room to plunge my knife
Into his heart."
However, this last act of defense was
not necessary.
"MasterJ1 cried the postboy, who was
waiting-wltB the chaise—"master, here
be men ou horseback, galloping. I
doubt they nre coming after the lady."
Tom Rising stepped to the door and
looked down tho road. Tho day was
already beginning to* break, ne saw
lu the dim light a company of horsemen galloping along the road. It was
a bnd road, and there had been rain, so
thftt the horses went heavily. They
were very near. In a few moments
they would lie upon him. He looked at
tbe chaise. He made one more effort.
"Molly," he snid, "come down quick.
Thero Is Just time. Let us have no
more fooling."
Again she made no reply. Knife hi
hand, with crimson cheek and set lips,
she watched the hole in the thatch and
thc mnn tearing It away.
Tom Rising swore ngnln most blasphemously. Then, seeing thnt tho game
was lost, he loosened his sword In Its
scabbard and stepped Into the middle
of tbo road.
MUST admit that la
the conduct of this affair Lord Fyllngdale
showed both coolness
and resolution. Ths
news that the heiress
L/*JffcJJ WI of Lynn had been ab-
*Uw4AmmmmJL ducti'd spread Immediately through thc rooms. Tho whole
company Docked to the doors, where
Lord Fyllngdale stood calm and without passion, while beside him the old
captain Stamped and cursed thc villains
link no wn.
He called Molly's chairmen.   What-
had thoso fellows seen? Thev snld that
ths*** were waiting by orders; thnt another chair Itobd before them at tlie
door, the beafen of which were strangers to tbem, a fact which nt this
crowded season occurred .constantly!
dial is gentleman whose name they
knew not, but whom they hnd seen In
Ibe streets und at the assembly, mostly
drunk, bad come out hastily and spoken to these chairmen; thnt his lord*
ship himself hat) bunded the lady li.in
tin* cbalr mid closed the doors, to th.'lr
nsiinilsliinent, because they were themselves waiting tor the lady, nnd Hint
the chnir was carried off Instantly,
leaving them In bewilderment, nol
know lug what to do.
He nsked them next for a closer description of the gentleman, Be was
young, It appeared. He was red In the
face.   He looked masterful.   He cursed
the chairmen in a very free and noble
manner. One of the chnlrmen gave him
his sword to wear, which is not permitted In the assembly. He was swear-
lug nil the time, as If in great wrath.
"My lord," a gentleman Interrupted,
the description tits Tom Rising."
"Has Mr. Rising been seen In the as
sembly this evening?"
"He was not only here, but he danced
witb the lady."
"Is be here now? Let some one look
for Mr. Rising."
Tbere was no need to took for btaa,
because the rooms, even the cardroom,
was now empty, all the people being
crowded about the doors.
"Where does he lodge? Let some one
go to bis lodgings."
"With submission, my lord," said another.   "It Is not at bis lodgings that

"Let some one go to the Rose tavern,
then, and quickly. Captain Crowle, we
will go to the Crown while Inquiries
are made. Gentlemen, there is great
susplclou that an abominable crime
bath been committed and tbls young
lady hath beeu forcibly carried away
for the sake of ber fortune. I take
blame to myself for not making sure
that I was placing her In her own
chair. Tbls Is my business. Rut I nsk
your belp for tbe honor of tbe spa and
tbe company."
A dozen gentlemen stopped forward
aud offered their help and their sword**,
If necessary. Among tbem was Colonel Lanyon.
"Come, then; let us adjourn to tho
Crown and make Inquiries. Re of good
cheer, captain. We will find out which
way they took. If they have nothing
but the^chalr to enrry her away, we
can easily catch thum up."
"1 know my girl," said the captain.
"It is not oue man who can dnunt tmr,
nor will n dozen men force her to marry against her wilL If they try. there
will be murder."
"If wo cannot find the way they took.
we must scour the country."
At the gates of the garden they lenru
ed that the keeper had seen the chair
go out and observed that It was closely
followed by a gentleman whom he
could only di'scribe by his height,
which was taller than the nverngs*.
Now, Tom Rising was six feet nt least!
At the Crown, In Lord Fyllngdale's
room, they held a brief consulintloii.
after which the geutlemen who had
volunteered their help went out Into
tbe town to make Inquiries.
In a few minutes they began to return. It was ascertained thnt Tom
Rising was not at bis lodging, nor was
he at the Rose tavern, nor could he be
found at any of the taverns usesl by
gentlemen. This strengthened the .suspicion ugalnst him. Then one remembered the strange words of the early
morning In which Tom Rising had
promised his friends that he would before the next day was dune be the richest man In the county — rich enough
to play with them until he had strlppes)
every man ns bare as Adam. Those
words were taken jis mere drunken
ravings. Hut now they seemed to have
had a meaning. Where was Tom Rising?

added in tho person of Miss Victoria Widdis. To a reporter of the

Writing to The Mall and Empire
the other day, Mr. Arthur Harvey,
who has more than a local reputation as a scientist, says: Your paper of tho 15th Informs us that some

they found under somo leavee in a
Uos.-dalo ravine. You call it a
•'gruesome discovery," and you
think residents of the neighborhood
"wi:l learn with pleasure 0/ their

Tliey wero probably small ■pocl-

uncommon near Toronto, for I have

are pretty creatures, and wholly admirable to all wh,) study the wonderful  works of Cod.

St. Mury.s Ferry, N. B., June 14.—
(Special)—Mr. Thomas Harrison of
this place hus addressed two significant letters to the Dodd's Medicine
Co., Toronto
St. Mary's Ferry, Dec. 18, 1895.
Gentlemen :
1 feel it my duty to you and to
the public at large to tell what
Dodd's Kidney Pills have dono for
About one year ago I began to
snifter with severe pains over the region of ir.y kidneys, followed by u
very  lethargic  feeling.
When 1 lay down, it was torture
to get up again.
This state continued for Sometime,
and all the while 1 was still getting
weaker and  losing Qesh rapidly.
My appetite was very much itn-
| aired, and at last, i was obliged to
call in a physician.
He gave my sufferings a very learned name, and doctored me for some
time, but 1 got no better.
1 called in several other physicians, but it. wus of no use; my suf-
teringa got worse all the timo until
I   began to despair of life.
A friend advised mo to use Dodd's
Kidney l'ills. I was very skeptical,
but was prevail.d upon to commence
a treatment; tho first box made mi
feel somo better.
1 passed a stono that bail formed
in the bladder.
i continued the use of Dodd's Kisl
ney rills until I had used three
boxes, and now believo that I have
a radical nnd complete cure, as it is
s-.x months since I used any of the
l'ills, and have had no symptoms or
return of the malady.
*. know that my cure is due to
Dodd's Kidney Pills, as I used no
other medicine after comineacing
their use.
Yours truly,

Following Is The Times-' report mi
of the first speech in the llritish
House of Commons of Mr. George
M. lirown. son of the late Hon. Geo.
lirown of Toronto. Tho speech wns
delivered on tho second reading of
thc finance bill, which includes the
new grain duties.    The report says :
Mr. li. M. lirown (IOdinburgh, Central), in a maiden speech, twitted
tho supporters of the Government
with supporting a tax which was
protective In appearance, but whoso
ul tributes were guaranteed as being
of tho essence of free trade by its
promoters. Tho tax was carefully
described ns a registration duty, although it possessed none of the features of n registration duty as popularly understood In former dnys. It
could not he too sifts*n Insisted upon
that this wus a tax which would fall
isn the consumer, and that it was n
protective lux, though only of n
siimll amount, It would always remain in lean years to make tho
Issaf il-ss- halfpenny by halfpenny a
little faster than it otherwise
would do. It wsnild always remain in fat years to prevent tho loaf
from fulling halfpenny by halfpenny
as quickly as it otherwise woultl do.
'Hear, hear) The tax would intro-
iluiv n new element of uncertainty
unsl speculation into the s-orn trasle.
(Hear, hear.) He thought the Government had not fully considered the
effect sif this tax on tho colonies. If
thoy did not wish to encourage the
desire of the colonies for a preferential
tarilT, tho only way to resist it was
to maintain free tnislo in its entirety.
The en'y friendship forever   merciful to our weakness ia God's.

For my part, lt is with some regret
I isukiisswleslga that perhaps the Gov-
ernini-iit might have deuo more than
it has for the encouragement of
native artistic taloQt. There Is a
scheme which 1 have liaug had in my
mind, which, might nmrva to encourage Canadian artist*. Perhaps if we
were to propose some timo ln the
near future to have theso walls
adorned by paintings repeating Canadian history ssnd rssiiimemoratlng tho
names of Canaslian artists, such a
proposition would meet with universal favor. (Applause.) 1 venturo to

The verdict of thc coroner's jury
in the late coal mining horror nt
Fernie is that the mines were dan
ijerous, the watering system being
inadequate, and the coal dust permitted to augment. The jury re-
commends immediate installation of
a watering system and a more thorough inspection of the mines Beyond
this limited official censure, nothing
j further has been brought home to the
companv, and the death of 140 human beings will ceunt as naught.
Untold misery and agony fer the
'families of the dead ones will not
much concern the company, and the
same old push will be made to get
dividends. Some effort will of course
' be made to square themselves with
the law, but corporation action tones
ever to shirk responsibility in order
'.to secure yearly returns upon the
.money invested. Company rule in
America is more powerful than that
of government, and tbe monied pow
ers hold human life cheap.

Talk there has been In abundance,
hut the interests of tbe province have
suffered rather than benefitted.   All
over the  Dominion the  provincial
government is held up to ridicule,and
representatives of capital assert no
previous legislature hus inspired sn
much distrust as thc one just closed.
Freak ideas have been tho prominent
.feature rather than wise and deliberate legislation.   Private aggrand
izemont and greed, aided and abetted
bv liberal applications ef lehby oil,
have been much in evidence, result
jing in a mass of contradictory detail,
.Policies have  been  advanced and
withdrawn with surprising rapidity,
and support has been held and controlled by the office bidder. Money
has boon voted with reckless abandon
and the province deluged with debt.
Dunsmuir as premier  lias been  u
.diatlnct failure,  his dominant ambition being to secure a title, and his
manipulations to control the situation
have  been   most  uaeditying.   The
'balance of the crowd bavo been but
^lttle better. Again, thank goodness.
