For once tho citizens of Slocan have
been united and have worked and
voted harmoniously and unanimously
for tho uplifting and progress of the
city. On Tuesday the vote of the
ratepayers was solicited on Bylaw No.

Ontario-Slocan Lumber Co., and the
ballot resulted unanimously in favor
of tho bylaw, 36 votes in all being
This is the second time the ratepayers have voted on the question.the
lirst time bein"; on Nov. 4, 1!M)2, wben
the vote stood 11 for to 7 against.
That bylaw. No. 14, called for the
raising of $6000, but it was found the
amount would uo! lie sufficient to
cover the purchase price of the mill
site, as the townsite company held out
for au additional $1600, so ita appeal
was made to the lieutenant governor
to have it cancelled. The new b\ law
gives ample funds for carrying out the
project, thus ensuring the hi,** milling
plant as a permanent fixture,
Tuesday s vote was 12 short of that
cast in November last but it is more
satisfactory in that none were found
to say nay. There was not much interest evinced in the vote, as the passage of tho bylaw was a foregone conclusion.   Should no protest be li)< d

The oft-recurring trouble in the
British Columbia coal fields is causing
people to think seriously about some
moans to end these disputes, and
opinions are being centred upon compulsory arbitration. All admit arbitration is the proper <*ourse to pursue,
but it cannot be effective unless both
parties to a dispute are compelled to
present their grievances before a properly constituted tribunal, which will
have power to enforce its verdict.
Cpnpulsory arbitration is no now
tbing, but is a tried and proven specific for industrial disorders, as demonstrated by New Zealand and Australia.
The measure is bound to come and it
is satisfactory to note that Greenwood
instructed bor delegates to the Provincial Mining Association to work and
vote for it. British Columbia needs

For once tbe citizens of Slocan haw
been united mid have worked and
voted harmoniously and unanimously
for the uplifting and progress of the
city. On Tuesday the vote of the
ratepayers was solicited on Bylaw No.
IT. granting a bonus of $10,000 to the
Ontario-Slocan Lumber Co., and the
ballot resulted unanimously in favor
of the bylaw, .16  votes in  all lieing
Tbis is the second time the ratepayers have voted on the question.the
lirst time being on Nov. 4, 1902, when
the vote stood 11 for to 7 against.
That bylaw. No. 14, called for the
raising of $6000, but it was found the
amount would no! be sufficient to
cover the purchase price of the mill
site, as the townsite companv held out
for au additional $1600, so an appeal
wus made to the lieutenant-governor
to have it cancelled. The new bj law
gives ample funds for carrying oul the
project, thus ensuring the big milling
plant as a permanent fixture.
Tuesday s vote was 12 short of that
;ast in November hist but it is more
satisfactory in that  none were found
to say nay.   There was not much interest evinced in the vote, as the passage of tho bylaw was a foregone con-
elusion,   Should no protest be filed
within   the   next   80   days, tlie B.C.
Trust Co. will then nay over the purchase price of the debentures to the
city's credit at the  Hoyal Bank, Nelson.   As tbo necessary deeds for the
millsite are in the bank awaiting the
payment of the money, there shoul.l
m no delay now in bringing the long
drawn out business to a close.   It  is
altogether unlikely the citv will ewt
rogret its bargain with the Ontario-
Slocan Lumber Co.
Ore shipments this week consist of
."52 tons, of which 20 tons was from the
Ottawa and went to Trail. The remaining 12 tons Was sent out by the
lessees of the Meteor and was consigned to Nelson. It was the first ore sent
out by the latter property in years.
There will lie no more oro to go out
from this place for some time to come.
For 1902 tbe ore shipments from
the local division amounted to 6388
tons, made up from 12 properties,

For a
Happy Daj
Copyright, 190.', by the
S. S. MsvC'urc Company
Out In the garden Pbiloinena sang
•o sweet and high lt was like tbe
scent of the clove pinks. They stretched ln a iLuatti-il mass all up and down
the old fashioned borders. The garden
was big, and a wide, weathered gray
house brooded beside lt. Time was
when the Tryon house had been tbe
finest and most hospitable in all tbe
countryside. In the day of broken fortunes it still kept an aroma of cheery
good will.
Lusty hundred leaf raises grew behind the bordering pinks. Philomena
was snipping them ruthlftisly. cutting
them without stems and dropping
them in ber apron. It bulged ridiculously with the mass of bloom, but Bhe
kept crowding In clipped pinky white
petals, pretending to be con* us of
nothing but ber work.
Somebody had come up behind her,
a tall, young fellow, nipple and merry
eyed. He undid tlie apron strings delicately, gathered the band in his bands,
stretching daring arms about her
waist, and said: "Stop slaying your
thousands, Phil I One cose ought to
love her sisters too well for wholesale

teii.usly leaving the huddled apron
within bis hands. "If I were a rose, I
had rather be dipped for potpourri
than be left to waste and wither," she
said witb a dells-ious upward tilt of
tbe chin.
"Beiug iuterpri'ted, that means you
have not given np a stage career," Arthur Wayne satd, catching her baud.
"Phil, Phil," he went on, "you must
give it up. I cannot bear to think of
my rose, my rose of all the world,
withering, fading, iu the glare of the
"Stop! We have gone over al! that!"
Philomena said imperiously. "I tell
you, I must g.i. It is past ln'aring, the
way things are now. Oli, I know iny
aunts would not starve. They've a
roof over their heads, and I'ncle John
—but I cannot apeak of him. What I
cannot bear longer is to see them
pinched, unhappy, lacking the little
comforts that mean so much lu age,
feeling themselves dependent.*1
"You know our home would be
theirs," Arthur interrupted.
Phil gave blm a reproachful look.
"You won't understand," she said. "All
their lives tliey have been somebody,
gentlewomen, able to hold up their
heads. Gentlewomen bate charity.
They risked money and lost it, against
uucle'8 advice, for uiy sake. Now,
when I am told I have a fortune in
my throat, 1 must take care of them,
even If it breaks my heart."
The last word was under breath.
Wayne made to draw her io hlm, but a
brisk, bustling voice behind them said:
"So ho! Very pretty! Upon my word,
very pretty! Are we rehearsing for
Strephou and Chloe?" Then without
waiting answer the newcomer ran on:
"Miss Tryon, be ready for the early
train tomorrow. I've a letter from
Franzonl. He will try your voice, provided you come to hlm by lu o'clock in
the morning."
"I shall go with you," Arthur said,
openly taking Phil In bis arms. "I said
you must choose, dear. Let me take it
back. If go you will, let DM follow-
"No, no! I will uot let you spoil your
life!" Phil protested, but be held her
fast, saying, as he looked Music Master Graham square In the eye: "I'hilo-
menn Is my promised wife and not bj
a fair weather promise. Wherevi r y>>u
may take her I shall go too."
Graham's eyes were quizzical, yet
not unkind. "That's as you please,
young man," he said, waving his hand
up uud down. "But If you'll heed a
friendly word, stay behind, at least at
tiret. You see, you'd be so patently, so
palpably romantic you'd be set down,
uot ns n fact, but a press ngs-nt's ful,.'.

ouiemi, "Is so pure, so golden, so rars'ly

"Notwithstanding I shall go," Arthur said obstinately.
Graham shrugged his Shoulder*. Miss
Tryon,  the elder of the iiimls. came
tripping between the borders, her delicately wrinkled face exhaling a spiritual fragrance like the scent of slns-d
rose lenves. "Come In, nil of you," she
said eagerly. "There's n peddler on tlie
piazza, an elderly man. nud he looks so
tired, carrying that heavy pack. Smh
lovely things! Yes," deprecatingly to
Phllomt'iia, "Martha ami 1 let him

In spite of herself Phil gave a little
delighted cry, tbe silvery satin ground
was so rich and lustrous, tbe apple
bloom strewn uY'er it SO perfect In line
' and color.    She was sorry  when  the
1 fsaeddler said respectfully:
"That, sir, is an ordered bit. so not
for isale."
"Get another p'.ece for your order;
( I'm bound to bave this one," said Gra-
; ham good humoraedly.
Tbe peddler shook his head.   "There
; is not another piece like lt," he said.
i "This was specially woven for a happy
I day gown."
"Who is to wear It?" Philomena asked softly, stifling a sigh. Somehow she
found herself trembling, al! ber cour-
' age oozing away.    Sbe wished as she
j had never wished before that sbe bad
somebody of her very own to lean ou.
Her mother had died when she was
l*orn. Her father had gone away, disappeared, leaving her only a clouded
name fur heritage. She bad nevei
known uutil the trouble came; then
Uncle Jaihn had spoken harsh truth.
It was that, as much as love for tbe
two dear old ladies, whis-li kept her
steadfast to the thought of going Inte
the world and winning its applause.
She had never been curious or envious, but somehow there swelled in
her a sense of passionate injury against
the unknown who was to wear tliis happy day gown, ordered no sljiibt by a
father's loving pruje. She crushed tbe
rich fabric between ber fingers and
fixed a long look upon the peddler's
"A girl Is to wear it—that is, if she
chooses," the ps-ddler said, moving a
step nearer.
Then she saw that he was more travel worn and weary than aged. Dimly,
uncertainly, she saw, too. a likeness
that drew her electrically to her feet.
Through the open hall door her father's
portrait showed in the bloom and
strength of young manhood. She
glanced from it to tbe peddler and back
again, then st'iosl while us death, facing blm. too shaken to speak. His eyes
followed hers and grew misty ns lit

Greedy  Animals.
It may be doubted whether those of
us who are able to obtain sufficient
food without difficulty can appreciate
tlio craving for sustenance experienced
by sea birds and other animals which
have often by the force of circuni
stances to fast fssr long periods. Gull'-'
will eat until they cannot ily and when
they find pilchards on board a boat
will continue their feast until tliey can
only llo down and gasp. A superfluity
of food comes at such long intervals
that when It does come the avian intellect reels at the prospect, and what
seems a horn of plenty brings dire disaster. Seeing that gulls and gaonetl
know no better, we are not surprised
to hear of a John Dory, stuffed to tbe
very mouth, floating helplessly on the
surface of the water, unable to escape
from a Hock of sea birds which have
deprived It of Its eyesight and will
quickly take away its life.

hearse covered with black cloth arranged in a grewsome design and
drawn by six black ponies, each bedecked with headgear of long black
feathers. The hearse will be followed
by men on foot wearing knickerbtii'K

follow innumerable vehicles of every

Most Mlipino funerals, bowever, are
more pathetic. The father of a fc ••
weeks old baby will trot out to thc
cemetery entirely alone, with the little
white coffin balanced well on his head,
and if a man had not the price of a
vehicle his remains will be carried ou'.
on bamboo poles by four Gblnamen,
aud tlie coffin will be one tbat has ses n
service before.
The natives have different ways i.f
burial. Some bodies mv put into the
ground, while the larger majority nn
placed in niches in tlie wall of th.'
cemetery. ,v siaii cemented into the

Man is nnqnestionably a highly rational being. Still, if you travel and
observe, from the mouth of the Danube
to the Golden ('ate you will find most
men wearing a coat with a useless s-.i!
lar marked with a useless V shapes!
slash and decorated with twfl useless
buttons nt the small of the back and
one or two more useless buttons at the
cuffs. The collar, the slash and the
buttons are there lu answer to no
rational need. It is not n common climate nor a common racial need of protection against climate that tliey ^present, but a common civilization whose
form and ritual they mutely confess.
Over tbis entire area those who aspire
to be of the Brahman caste deck their
heads for wedding, funeral and feast
with a black cylindrical covering, suited, so far as we can discern, neither to
avert the weapon of the adversary or
the dart of the ruin nor to provide a
seat whereon man may sit and rest
himself. And as for the women contained within tliis same area we behold
that the amplitude of the sleeve, tlie
disposition of the belt and the outline
of the skirt all obey the rise aud fall
of one resistless tide wblcb neither
moon uor seasons control.—Benjamin

Twenty-Second Annual Statement
The Certainty of Fate.
The Mohammedans hnve a fable
which tbey repeat to Illustrate the ivr-
tninty of fate. Tlse Philadelphia Times
quotes it as baring been told by Mr.
Robert Barr, the celebrated novelist
A sultan was once asked by Irs favorite, the grand vizier, 'ssi- permission
to leave at once for Smyrna, although
a brilliant court fete was tben In progress. Upon being asked his reason for
such haste tlie vizier replied:
"Because 1 just saw the ance! of
death yonder In tlie crowd. lie looked
nt uie so earnestly tbat I know bo has
come for me.   I wish lo escape h a."
"<*o! Go at ones'!" saisl the sultan,
who then beckoned to the angel and
asked why the latter had I.m»'.. <J so
('.•uns'stly at the vizier.
"I was wondering," replied tli<> .mgel
of death, "why he was hero, for 1 have
orders to kill him In Smyrna."

the Canary islands, on July '.'!. 17!'".
The place was very strongly fortified,
nud Nelson, in tlie face s.f n : re ol fifty
cutis from the batteries, attempted to
storm the town by boats, 'i*ii<- attempt
was frustrated liy tlie strength of the
mole and the nonappearance of n land
force which shoulil have s perated.
A hundred ami fifty men were killed
and n hundred wounded on tbe I'.iiiish
side, and Ni'lson hist his rlgbl firm.
Two flags were also captured, and
these ms' still kept in thc cathedral of

dull and s-u-ilaglging, and prices almost
on a dead levei. There has been
boino development of the easier lsssl-
iag noticed Uist weok, ejid it has led
to consldeialxlu selling of long wheat
by holders who were getting tired,
and short sellers were ensnuraged
thereby Vo sell short, and help prices
down, but the markets havs taken
all the wheat without any break,
and although there is a good deal
of bearish sentiment in evidence it
would ssjein that the undertone Is
strong, Prices at the close of business Friday show unchanged to ic.
advance on cloning prices of a week

Suites tlie past weok shows some decline a year ago, but this may bs
portly attributed to the cold and

show a marked fulling off, and
should this continue it may have a

markets. There ure reports of better
