Another Warm Time DevaUps, Whlah I*
Huffily Knjssyesl br th* Mnny Spectators 1'reseat-Caurt of Ilavlaloa oa
Monday Morning Nest.
Regular wssokly meeting of the city
council was held on Monday evoning,
all the memlierH lieing present. A big
crowd of spectators was also present,
in anticipation of a warm time developing over the early closing bylaw. In
this tliey were uot disappointed, for
the situation certainly did approach
the torrid.
Aid. Arnot, at the outset, objected
to tho minute*!, insofar as they dealt
with the early closing bylaw. He had
not ss'csinded an amendment for the
clerk to again circulate the original
petition among the merchants, but rather the proposed amendment to the
bylaw. They had the petition duly
signed and there was uo newssity to
again circulate it. The minutes were
Tho clerk said he had understood
thc resolution just as he had written
it dowu.
Aid. Arnot interpolated that the
ni 'ivlunts had all read the petition
liefore they signed it.
Mayor Vork said there had been
much discii.-hion at the time the amendment was introduced, hence the confusion. He wanted a more general
expression of feeliug ou the bylaw, so
had moved in committee to have the
petitiou again circulated.
Clerk sBeutlcy stated he would not
have had any right to circulate an
ameudment to a bylaw.
Aid. Teeter understood the situation
just as the clerk aud mayor had ex
plaiued it.
Aid. Worden thought the discussion
at the last meeting had ariseu over the
won presence of the petition. The resolution was for the clerk to again circulate the petition, with the bylaw attached. He saw nothing wrong iu the
Aid. Arnot maintained that th<* clerk
was to have acted on tlie amendment,
not on the original petition. He refuted Aid. McNeish's remarks at last
meetiug that the signatures to the petition had beeu wrongfully olitained.
He stated that Aid. McNeish had
either not told the truth or had misunderstood the words of the signers.
Aid. Smith said the aldermen were
all out of oider, as the point under
discussion was whether the minutes
were right or not.
Aid. McNeish reviewed his remarks
at last meeting. "Mid he understood
the bylaw should accompany the petition.
A motion that the minutes Ik; signed as read was carried, Aid. Arnot voting nay.
Correspondence read: From license
commissioners, asking that a bylaw be
pi*sss*-"d in accordance with section 202
of the Municipal Clauses Act, dealing
with the mode of .prc-r-eedure for the
renewal of licenses. The secretary
was present and explained what was
wanted. Referred to the city solicitor
for an expression of opinion.
The clerk then stated he had circulated the petition for the early closing
bylaw, it showing the original signers
iu favor of it.while immediately lielow
the majority of the petitioner* had
signed no.
Finance committee reported in favor
of bills amounting to $38.85. Ordered
Bills presented: Payroll for April
$146.66; additional grant to the school
board of $40, making $190 for the
month.   Both ordered paid,
It was announced that the court of
revision would assemble next Monday
morning at 10 o'clock.
The clerk stated he had liecn delayed in sending letter to the eduei*,-
tion department relative to lion-ri-si-
dent pupils, he not having obtained
all the necessary information. He
would get it all together this week and
forward same to the department.
Next came the much -tai Ited-of early
closing bylaw. It being found that
there were uow not three-quarters of
the merchants in favor of the bvlaw.
there was uo call uow for its introduc
Aid. McNeish rose and stats*-! that
he believed all tho merchants had not
even yet thoroughly studied the proposed bylaw. He replied at length to
Aid. Arnot's strictures on ssiino of tlie
signers of the petition, maintaining
his original position.
Mayor York said none of the mer
chants were aware of the nature of the
bylaw when they signed for it. However, he did not wish to take any part
in the affair, as he closed his place
any way at 6 o'clock. He advised tho
merchants affected to get together aud
fix the matter up.
Aid. Arnot asserted the bylaw was
drawn up .according to the statutes,
Thero was no use haviug a bylaw, if
merchants wens allowed to serve CUaV
tomers nfter hours    K ■  ' •\
to inijio.se a  hai .
chants of tbe town wore like a lot of
old women,as they did not know their
own minds two minutes together. All
he wanted was a uniform closing hour.
If the merchants did not know their
own minds, then the bylaw had better
be dropped.
John Bull was here given permission to address the council. He was
one of those who had signed for the
bylaw, but he would like to see a provision made in it whereby a customer
could lie served after hours if need lie.
He also resented Aid. Arnot's remarks
of people not knowing their own minds.
The speaker had signed no tbe second
time, for he wanted no hardship worked on him.
Aid. Smith did not want the bvlaw
going through as it was,but an amendment to sell after hours would kill it.
Aid. Arnot was acting iu good spirit
in bringing iu the bylaw. Several of
the merchants, however, had said that
they had signed the petition without
reading it. Their now signing the
other way showed them to lie very
changeable. He favored putting the
bylaw in the waste basket for an indefinite period.
Aid. Teeter found no fault with the
signers for the bylaw. The move was
all right, but the law too binding. Ho
moved that the early closing bvlaw lie
indefinitely postponed. .Seconded by
Aid. MeNeish.
Aid. Worden moved in amendment
that the bylaw bo immediately qua-died.
Aid. Arnot seconded the amendment, because the merchants did not
know their own minds. He warned
all merchants against selling goods in
future on holidays, for he certainly
would have the law on them. "If thoy
sell anything on a legal holiday, then
let them look out for my smoke."
Aid. McNeish again rose to the defence of the merchants, and named
certain parties as examples of those
who changed their minds. "Put the
bylaw iu the waste basket."
Amendment put and carried, Aid.
Teeter holdiug out for his motion.
Aid. Teeter and Smith moved the
filing of the petition.
AM. Worden again loomed up with
an amendment that it be put in the fire;
seconil-*d by AM. Arnot.
aid. Teeter closed another Wrangle
by insisting that no document coming
before the council could lie treated in
that way, so the amendment was withdrawn and the motion carried
Arlington  and Speculator   Botla   Break
Into Ora.
J. Frank Colloin.managing director
of the Arlington and Speculator properties, returned to Slocan ou Tuesday, but would give out nothing for
publication regarding the advancement of the experiments on the Arlington ore. now lieing conducted at
Spokane. However, he intimated, as
he has done so before, that everything
was all right and satisfactory.
In other iiiattt*rs,though,Mr. Collom
was not so reticent, and, when asked,
continued the reports of recent strikes
on both the Speculator and Arlington.
On the former the loug tunnel has
broken into a most encouraging body
of ore. It is six foot in width, there
being five iuches of rich ore on either
side of a five foot body of concentrating matter. The two "smaller streaks
are very rich, carrying much native
silver and sulphides, while the central
liody is expected to prove of winning
aud lasting quality. Altogether, it
constitutes the licst thing yet encountered in the mine, during its three
years of steady development. The
long tunnel is in close to 3000 feet and
has penetrated the Speculator aud
Speculator fractional claims and is
now well iuto the Mineral Mountain
Ou the Arlington a splendid body
of sulphide ore, one foot in width, was
tapped in A tunnel, almut 2600 feet
from the mouth of tho drift and at 370
foet depth. It wus cut on May 1, just
at the time when Messrs. Williamson,
of San Francisco, aud Burns, of Portland, were visiting the property, so
coming at a most opportune time.
Though smaller -tones have been encountered iu A, this strike is tho first
permanent chute cut, and it prove*
ix'vond question that the immensely
rich and important bodies of ore open -
i*l up in B tunnel are carrying well
with depth.
These two strikes are a source of j
grout satisfaction to the management,
and are distinctly gratifying to tin-
whole camp, as proving the permanency of its two premier properties.
Work At Us,* Ottawa.
Just now there aro but seven men
employed at the Ottawa and the majority of them nre on contract work.
Operation* are confined to the No. 4
drift, which is In 500 feet frnm the
surface. For 172 fst't tho tuunel is a
crosscut to the ledge and the halauce
is on the lead. Thry have reached u
point immediately bolowthr No. 8and
lx* cut before,a8 the higher indications
pointed to larger bodies below. In
fact, the face of the drift at present
has encouraging signs and a chute
may be tapped any day. Once cut,
there will be large reserves to work on.
Settlement Has   Been  KITested   In  This
Celebrated Case.
A settlement out of court has lieen
effected in the celebrated case of Clark
vs Collom, arising out of the sale of
the Arlington mine to the present
company. J. K. Clark, of New Denver, the plaintiff, entered suit against
J. Frank Collom for 80,000 shares iu
the company, valued at $24,000, claiming that as nis portion in the promotion of the deal. The ease has occupied the attention of the British Columbia courts for tho past three years
and has been aired in all the principal
cities.being adjourned or delay-**I from
a formal hearing upon some preliminary motion or cause upon overy occasion.
It was finally set for jury trial at
Rossland on Tuesday, but on Saturday the plaintiff's lawyers made overtures for a settlement, which were
Tiuickly accepted. The basis for withdrawal of the suit waa the payment of
$2000, covering the plaintiff's foes to
his counsel to date, while those of the
defendant were upwards of .$3000. W.
A. McDonald, K.C., Nelson, and E. P.
Davis, K.C., Vancouver, two of the
leading lawyers in the country, had
the charge of the defendant's tide of
the case. By this settlement the last
of the many suits in which the Arlington has figured has been cleared awav
and the property is enjoying a well-
earned tranquility.
The Clark-Collom case has l>eeii
one of the most noted ever entered in
the west, as it was through passing
strictures on the British Columbia
judiciary sitting on it that Wm. Mac-
Adams, of the defunct Sandon Paystreak, spent a short timo in the Victoria jail for contempt. The Mac-
Adams' conviction threatened to become a national question, but it has
quietly dropped out of sight, though
some stirring scenes wore witnessed
at the time.
Cssnsblnntloa (lets the Ledge.
On Sunday Al Teeter and Martin
Isaacson, the owners of the Combination, situated eMse to the old bridge
on Springer creek, stnick the ledge in
their crosscut and have broken into
some line ore. The ledge is exposed
in two upper workings and each had
ore. The present level was theu started, close down tothe crock, but it was
difficult to get the lay of the ground,
owing to the heavy wash. The owners had to drift tlirough 35 feet of
wash before cutting bedrock, which
was penetrated some distance and
then the crosscutting commenced. A
westerly direction was followed, but
with no success.
This spring the owners decidi*d to
drift east, and in 10 feet the footwall
was penetrated and the ore cut. The
drift will lie pushed across to the
hanging wall, the ledge being 40 feet
in width. A grab sample of ore from
above gave 137 oz silver aud $6 gold,
and thc new find is even lietter. The
owners will work the property steadily, as it is most advantageously situated.

As explained two weeks ago,the idle
days of the tug Sandon were few, as
she has again been placed in commission. Capt. Mat Roid, formerly mate
ou the Slosjau and more recoiitlv on

got up steam on the tug, taking out a

Elmendorf well knew. Wbat one
needs is tbe skill to construct a good,

Iu these Important particulars Eltnen-
dorf was a dire failure. He secured uo

entirely upon bis salary. Indeed bis

day following that upon which the

John Robinson. It appeared that I'utsin son had left the house on Thirty-
eigbtb street immediately after Alden's
departure, which he bad viewed with
every indication of Intense and painful
e»' lenient.
No obstacle was put ln the way of
his departure when he desired to go;
but an unobtrusive young man of Captain Neale's retinue walked upon the
other side of the street- Robinson did
not see this young man—which is sometime* a great misfortune for the per*
•on thu* attendt*d—but it happened, in
this Instance, that after a considerable
amount of peslestrlan eiercise of a
•eemlugly aimless sort the young man
did not see Robinson, and this was undoubtedly a serious misfortune for the
"shadow." He was roundly sworn at
by his superior, when, after a fruitless
search, he was obliged to aunounce
his failure to that individual. He did
not do this, of course, until be had
waited a long time ln front of the
bouse where Robinson lived. Had Robinson returnesl there tbe "shadow"
would have given, ln his subsequent
report, a full statement covering every
detail of Boblnson'i movement*) and
every minute of tho time, and would
cheerfully have sworn to lt ln court
bad later events made such a processing iieci'Ssary. But, falling to "pick !
np" Robinson, there was no escape |
from confession.
Th* landlady of the boarding house <
where   Robinson   lived   said   that   he
was somewhat Irregular in his habits ,
and that he did not always come home j
to dinner; but wben at 2 o'clock ln the

Elmendorf had no idea that Robinson j
bad "skipped," principally because j
there was no apparent reason for lt.
Elmendorf replied thnt bis advices
were altogether favorable, and little
more was said until they had entered
Alden's private office, in which Robinson bad a desk.
"I thought you knew Miss Miller
quite well," said Elmendorf. taking s
chair. "You spoke of her by ber tlrst

"Tbis is private business." rejoined
Robinson, mopping his face, "lt ha*

"My dear sir," said Elmendorf, "In a
case s.f tbls kind, wheu a man begins
to lie. it's always important. I happen
to know that you haven't had a letter
come to that house since you've been
living there, so you didn't go up town
to get one. In my opinion, you went
up because you wanted to see Miss

"Tou put me ln a mighty bad place,"
ri'plled Robinson. "Suppose I say thut

pleasure of wishing Mr. Robinson good

tbat this man never lived in the Sandwich Islands unless we can strike his
trail around bere."
"Did you carry tbat cane yesterday?"
asked Elmendorf suddenly, and Hob
Inson promptly went Into a blue chill
which be strove to conceal.
"Yes—of course— no," he stammered.
"I tblnk that was whut 1 went u> uiy
room for."
"1 think It wasn't." said Elmendorf.
and at that moment, to the surprise of
both, Alden entered tbe room.
*«Id   Iiohtnson,   opentna  lilt

nnd, like any otber man, you didn't object to seeing her again even if It was
only for four seconds. That's all there

"1 don't deny that I btd some sucb
"It was your motive for offering to
take tin* note, and you had no other.
Isn't that a fact?"
"Well, yes." replied Robinson, "between ourselves, that's tbe truth."
"You had Do ernind at your roomf
"Of courso not."
"Then why did you go there?" de-
msadafl Elmendorf. "Wby did you go
straight over tbere from Miss Miller's
"I thought I'd change my clothes,"
said Robinson desperately.
"Did you change them? Haven't you
got on the same suit now tbat you wore
down town yesterdayf
"Yos." said Robinson. "I—I changed
my mind."
"Instead of your clothes," rejoined
Elmendorf, with a smile. "By the way,
where wero you born?"
Robinson's expression revealed *ome
slight relief.
"In   Honolulu,"   be   said.     "I   lived
there until I was 21.   Then my parents I
moved to Amoy, China.   I cam* to thi* I
country about two years ago." !
"Where did you laud?"
"San Francisco." I
"Date of arrival and name of steam- j
er?" said Elmeudorf. taking up his i
notebook again.
Robiuson was undisturbed tbis time. !
"I've forgotten  tbe exact date,"  be I
said, "and th* steamer wus a tramp.  I
cun't recnll ber name."
Asked what he had don* In 8nn
Francisco, Robinson replied tbat he1
had drifted across tbe continent Inime-
dtately, arriving In New York lu April,
a year ago. Very soon afterward he
had had the good fortune to make tbe
acquaintance of Mr. Alden, who had
taken a liking to him and given bim
his present position. He bad few
friends In this country. There was no '
one who knew him better tban Alden
"You looked to me like a college bred
man," said Elmendorf, whereupon Rob- I
lnson replied that tbere wero excellent
I. DEN looki>d years
younger than yesterday. His expression
hud lost much of Its
painful concentration
aud Intensity. Ulutlgll
a shrewd man might
say be was still under
tbe domination of a single thought.
"Sucb splendid news at tbe bospl
tai," said be, "that I ventured down
bere for a few minutes. 1 can see her
tbls afternoon. Jack." he added, nil
dressing Robinson, "you'll have to look
out for my mail for tbe next few slays
I shall be at St. Winifrosl's all lhe
time, or at the house next door on the
west Any news tbls rooming, .ir
"No," replied tbe detective. "1 came
down to bave a little talk with Mr.
Robinson, but as neither of us Knows
anything tbe result wus not Important
By the way, can I write a note at your
Alden was Just raising tbe lid.
"Certainly," said be, and Elmendorf
•at down and wrote fast with a sputtering pen.
"I don't see any blotter bere," he
■sid, wheu the pen stopped scratching.
"Never use one," rejoined Alden; "1
don't bave time. There's a pasi. but 1
never blot anything on it"
"Too don't spill as much Ink as I do,"
said Elmendorf, "except on your signature.   You write tbat black euough."
"Habit of mine," replied Alden.
"How do you happen to know anything
about ltr
"I saw tbe note you wrote yester*
Alden flushed.
"I couldn't help It," said Elmendorf
hastily. "And let me tell you that I'm
greatly mistaken If the result of my
seeing lt Isn't very important."
"In what way?"
Elmendorf begged to be excused from
giving an Immediate answer, and Alden did not Insist
"This 'making trouble' that you mentioned last evening," he said, "is getting its work In this morning. 1 nm
shadowed by tbe most conspicuous
man ln Greater New York. Every
time he fancies that I have forgotten
his presenc* he barks like a dog and
remarks t* every one wbo will listen
that th* grip Is worst ln hot weather."
Elmendorf glanced at Alden with an
anxious eye. He seemed to have something oa bis mind, but be sai.l only:
"I'm surprised. Tbere are shadows on
th* force who can't be picked out *o
Alden regarded blm Intently over tbe
top of the desk upon which he was
"See If I've got any more letters outside. Jack," b* said and added when
Robinson bad left the room, "Do you
mean to say there's another one?"
"Sure," returned Elmendorf. "on*
for trouble and one for business. 1
don't kuow why I tell you these thing*.
except that I hate Neale. He wants to
know where you were yesterday, and
he thinks you'll go there again. He expect* you to throw tbe man with th*
grip and never notice the other one,"
"I'll remember this, Elmendorf," said
"It's a gift," replied tbe detective.
"As for that, you've paid me already
wltb the Informution that you don't
use a blotter. Good morning. I'll see
you biter in the day."
It may bave been about half an hour
afterward when he presented himself
at the house where John Hoblnson
lived aud Introduced himself to the
landlady thereof, with the result that
he was presently ushered up two
flights of stairs to a large room at the
rear of the house. I-eft alone there, ho
remarked to himself, "i his doesn't
seem to go against me so much s* it
usually does."
Then he proceeded t* examine the
personal effects of Mr. Robinson. The
examination was thorough, but tha
product was singularly meager. He
discovered an envelope containing
some pawnbroker's tickets, slewing
loan* upon a watch, a winter evercuat
and a ring of small value, and in a
wsste paper basket a part of an envelope which bad been addressed to some
person In Philadelphia, but the name
was missing. Remembering that Robinson had tbougbt of I'hlladelphla Urst
when groping about for a falsehoosl,
the latter discovery assumed some Utile
Importance as a guide for subsequent
The particular object of tbe detective's search eluded him, bowever, and
when he left thc house be was far
from satisfied with bis luck.
"I thought I knew wby Robiuson
went borne," he said, "but either I
didn't sr he changed bis mind."
He spent some hours In verifying
Robinson's statement about the place
where he had passed the night rind !□
attempting to ascertain the young
man's favorite haunts and tbe names
of bts companions. Th* verification
was easy, but the search for the man's
associates yielded little. Apparently
Robinson had not a wide circle of acquaintances.
Returning to the lower region* of th*
city, Einieiniorf encountered a b!l of
better fortune in learning thai Bol   i
sou  had  visited  his place of employment on the previous uay benvecu o
und ti o'ctaek.
"If he's the man." reflecte-d the detective, "he took tbat money home, and
then, not Boding a satisfactory pl***1 t >

"Whenever tbo eye is in use Its muscles ure brought into play, Look ut uri

"Nothing ls simpler than to remedy

FRIDAY, MAY 15th, 1903.
While not presuming to violate state
secrets, The Dull ventures to assert
' that the Arlington ore experiments axe
' & success and that the big mill will be
built this summer.   You can bank on
On Monday the legislature merely
assembled to adjourn again till the
"20th, by which time the investigation
into the Columbia & Western land
grant scandal should be concluded.
'SirThomas Shaughnessy and other
C.P.R. officials are en route from Mon
treal to tell what they know about the
deal, and it promises to be spicy.   sSo
• far as the investigation has gone, the
land grant scheme wreaks with perfidy, and the political reputations of a
' couple of the ministers are badly tar
' nished. An early dissolution of the
house is a certainty.
Tbe Drill this week contains a
number of items of a most encourag-
' ing nature for the camp, the more important being those describing  the
' strikes on the Speculator, Arlington
and Combination. Those are the kind
• of stories that bear repeating and will
have influence on the outside. Satisfactory as tbe strikes are to the own-
•era of the respective properties, the
more so are they to the numberless
prospectors owning claims in this dry
ore belt.   Encouragement has  been
- given the prospector- confidence imparted to business circles,and increased lustre added to the already good
name of the camp.
James Dunsmuir is realizing that
his struggle with the Western Federation of Miners is no child's play, and
is entirely different from anything he
has yet experienced. He must needs
learn his lesson and he will be a wiser
man when he gets through with the
fun.   An organization of 4000 local
- members and an international treasury
of $2,000,000 is no easy combination
' to tackle, even with Dunsmuir's pilo.
In the meantime coast folk are exper
iencing -the raw edge of the struggle
in that buainess is interrupted, coal is
' going up in price, and the Vancouver
Island smelters shutting down for
lack of coke. Public sympathy will
be estranged from Dunsmuir, for the
peoplo love not a tyrant who denies
his workmen the simple right to or-
' ganize, no other question being invol v-
' ed.   Dunsmuir will lose.
A alight stir is to be noticed in poli
tical circles in the Slocan riding, the
' movement emanating from Conservative circles. It is given emphasis by
the fitct that the Sandon Mining Review issues a pronouncement in favor
of W. S. Drewry, of New Denver, as
the party candidate in the next provincial election. There has been a
feeling right along that Mr. Drewry
had political aspirations and it may be
taken for granted that he is going to
'have a shy at the candidature. Just
'the same it would have been wiser for
him to have awaited his chances at a
properly called -sonventiou of the
party and not try to force matters.
The Conservatives possess strength in
the riding, but ft behooves the party
to select the strongest candidate possible to ensure victory at the polls,and
Mr. Drewry is not the only available
material offering. As once before re
'marked by this paper, this end of the
lake must be reckoned with, and it is
just possible a dark horse may gather
.in the sweepstakes.

One by one the manufacturers of
well known American specialties are
realizing the present and prospective
value of the Canadian business field
and are establishing branch factories
in this country. One of the latest
concerns that has invaded Canada i.s
the Goodrich Polish Co., of Campliel-
lo, Mass., who have just completed a
very up-to-date shoe polish plant on
St. Genevieve street, iu Montreal.
They manufacture the well known
lines of the Trilby shoe polish; of
which a very large success has been
made in the United States. Mr.Good-
rich, in speaking of the establishment
of his factory.stnted that his company
had for a number of years enjoyed a
considerable trade in Canada.anu that
trade had developed to such proportions that it was advisable to nave a
manufacturing plant in Montreal. He
has been iu that city for a month past
superintending the installation of the
plant, which is now complete.
