A call has liecn issued to thc Conservatives of tho new riding of Kootenay to meet together at Nelson on
Wednesday, January 6, for the purpose of selecting a candidate to content the constituency in the approaching Dominion elections. The call is
authorized liy .John Houston, president of the Provincial Conservative
Association. Tlie busis of representation to the convention has been fixed
at five delegates to each provincial
riding embraced within the two Kootenays. As there are ninn of these
provincial ridings, it would make the
representation at the convention 45.
Though several names have been
mentioned in connection with the candidature, there is nothing definite vet
to figure on. The representation from
the Slocan riding to the convention
would give one delegate each to Slocan, .Silverton, New Denver, Nakusp
and Sandon.

having had good success iii prospecting. They have taken up, together
witli associated friends, much fine
fanning land, several conl measures,
and have made a number of promising
quartz locations, In that section is to
be found silver, lead, and gold veins
in the quartz, and gold in placer, besides coal, timber, ranching land, etc.

High Grade ef Ore.
The ore being obtained at the Black
Prince is of a most satisfactory grade,
and if rawliiding were possible the
lessees would soou realize dividend*.
Two assays on the shipping ore wore
obtained this week, one giving ISO oz
in silver and the other 890 o/ in silver
and Sl per cont lead. The chief work
nt the mine is confined to the raise,
which is up over (50 feet and with 60
feet yet to go. When that is completed the leasees will commence breaking
down ore.

C., some remarkable silver ore has recently been uncovered. In the ore
vein prottstite, pyrnrgyiite, argentite,

Schubert Symphony Club.
Slocan has had a number of high
grade entertainments of late, but for
qtiality, execution and finish none
have equalled that given by the Schu-
lx*i't Symphony Club on Monday eve,
in the Music Hall. The singing of
the ladies' quartette, as well as the independent solos, was tnily fine and
fulfilled every expectation. Kail Hunter's violin selections were a treat; but
.Miss Evangeline Parker, iu her reci-
tatious,took the honors of the evening.
She was equally at home in that feature as in the quartette or orchestra
work. Every number on the programme was encored, the large audience thus demonstrating their intense
appreciation. It was good to have
lieen there.

lxihind tho schome. They will draw
their supply cf timber from tho limits
staked bv Pat Gallagher and associates on Wilson creok. A conservative
estimate gives 125,000,000 feet of
standing timber on the limits. The
mill would cut for export.
Ta Discuss Manlclaal Affairs.
Acting Mayor Smith has called a
meeting of the property owners, and
others interested in the well being of
the place, for Friday evening, in the
citv hall. The municipal situation
will lie thoroughly canvassed and an
effort will lie made to secure a full
council for the ensuing vear. Tho
meeting is set for eight o'clock.
Standard OU Oraft.
The Standard Oil Company has
added ono cent a gallon to the wholesale price of kerosene and a cent per

And shines on the Western slope—
He brings ui a day's more longing,
Orhrings us s day's more hope;

With a tossing o[ foain-tlecked crest,
To break on tlie rocks encircling
The lakes of our mountain West.
And. over the tops ol the cedara,
Where the long-snaked river is drawn,
The smoke (rom the settler's clearing
Comes up in the morning's dawn ;
And, atom the I*row of the mountain
The white clouds lie at rest—
A stillness rests u;hin Nature
In the hesrt of our Silvor West.
Where Ih   Vine nine leans tar over

And the mountain stream comes dashing
From hills of eternal snow :
O, rngaed and rough is Nature,

To those who have wooed ami loved her
In our glorious mountain West.

Last Tear's Shipments Were S3S3Tans—
A Healthy Kvldeaea ef the Life and
Wealth or the Catup-KaterprUo the
Biggest Shipper.
Not a pound of ore was moved from
the division this week, owing to the
lack of snow, the scarcity of which is
causing a serious loss to operators, as
silver is falling in price. Shipments
are hung up at several properties, the
owners being most anxious to set it
moving. The Enterprise is the chief
sufferer, as it has upwards of eight
carloads of ore in the shipping bins.
Freighters aro also losing money.
For 1902 the ore shipments from
the local division amounted to G333
tons, made up from 12 properties.
Following is a full list of the shipments this year to date:

Though two women bnd en I led hlm

been in love. His first marriage, with «
cousin, bnd been to satisfy the terms of
his grandfather's will, and the second
union was simply one of convenience.
Daniel Newcomb, *• .dower, had needed a housekeeper, aud Betty Bloodalc,

of an institution and too trustful to be
thrown on the world, had needed a
home, lt lind resulted ns such marriages usually do-disastrously for the

was pretty and economical, nnd she
mnde him comfortable, but Betty had
grown to love her stolid husband with
all the ardor of a young and grateful
heart. Would he ever really care for

rested on her sunny head.
"1 tell you whnt. Mis' Newcomb,"
said Mrs. Ynrdwell, ready to close a
bargain, If Daniel don't like lt or he
thinks it too high priced I'll agree to
change It. Most all my hats are sold
with that undewtiimlin'. Husbands
have to be pleased now'days."
" 'Tlsn't the price. Dnuiel's real liberal. I'll take it." answered Betty nervously as she opened her .purse. There
was a wistful look ln her hiizol eyes as
she nsked, "Did you know Mary Kllon,
Daniel's first wife?"
"From the timo she wns a baby."
"Would she have worn a lint like

If she'd boon inclined to wear'em, she'd
hnve faltered at the cost. She wns extremely prudent"
"So Daniel says," murmured Betty
ns she left the shop. Hor precious
head gear deposited carefully in the
WOgon, she unhitched her horse nnd
started it toward the trim farmhouse
by'the river. Mrs. Ynrdwell watched
her until her slender figure faded from
sight. Then she went into her workroom.
"Scrcny," she said to hor helper,
"Daniel Newcomb's now wife is a real
takin' little thing, ns sweet an' pretty
as t'other wns humbly an' stingy. I'm
afraid from what she said that Daniel
is Mnry Ellonin' her to death. Poor
little thing!   1 do hope she is happy."
But Betty was not happy. Many
times since her mnrriage had she looked with tear filled eyes toward the little burial plot beneath the evergreens
and prnyed that sbe might fill tin-
place In her husband's heart formerly
occupied by the woman sleeping there.
Her husband's approval of her was
Kaugod by (he way her actions tallied
with Mnry Ellen's.
Daniel was not displeased, but the
difference in the women wus so striking Hint more than once he was quite
unconscious of an uttered comparison.
The first wife, u modej housewife, had
n faculty of making people feel uncomfortable in bor presence. Betty's
household duties might be performed a
trifle loss religiously, the dust might
isonieliir.es settle upon the parlor furniture, but the sunlight crept thore.
too, nnd hor very nature radiated compatibility.
On one occasion the usual compart*
son remained unexpressed, Betty hnd
called her husband into the brightly
'lighted parlor nnd pointed proudly to
the old nofn piled high with pillow*
covered with chintz and denims. She
had found some unused feather bods

disapproval in his countenance.
"Ynu- gohig — to— wear—that?" he
"Why, yes. Don't you like it, Daniel?" Betty perched It bowitchingly on

"It's pretty enough. But how those

".Mrs. Ynrdwell," she cried breath*
lessly after what seemed an eternity of
walking, "I've come to change iny hut.
I've got to have n mourning bonnet."
"For the land sakes!" exclaimed the
milliner, Hurried by curiosity. "Have

"Sort of one." answered Betty, giving

comes along removes It Into somebody's garden anything up to a quarter
of a mile away, and If it is tiled heavily enough'to resist the typhoon so
much the worse for the people under*
neath it when the lirst genuine earthquake arrives. But the odds are that It
will ho burned down before cither happens, as tlie Japanese use vory cheap
lamps and very fiery petroleum and
are regular children about fires. Of
course something else is done to the
four posts and the roof before they become a bouse In which births, marriages and deaths can take place. But
really remarkably Utile Is necessary.
Crossbeams are naturally added to
support the weight of the roof, grooves
are made In the crossbeams and In
the platform raised a footer two above
the ground which constitutes the floor.
A Japanese house is nil on ono floor
generally-in fact, one might say It is
nil one floor. Between the grooves in
thc floor and the grooves iu tbe crossbeams are run shutters with paper
panels lo divide the houses into whatever number of rooms the owner may
choose, which depends on the number
of bedrooms he may require. There
are no doors or passages in a typical
Japanese house. In it ovory room acts
as a passage inlo the room beyond it.
and for the door you slide back the
panel that happens to be nearest to
you. For this sliding there are little
bronze sunk handle* in the wooden
frames of the panels. The outside paper shutters do not come quite to the
edge of the platform floor; the grooves
along the edges are filled at night or in
severe weather with wooden shutters,
each of which is hold in its place by
the one that follows it, the last one
being secured with a flimsy wooden
A   School   Tk.nt   \V:m   Ilrlvea   labium
at   cniie toil.
One day in November, several years
ngo, tbe good people living on the
Massachusetts bay shore at the north
end of Capo Cod wero wrought to the
highest pitch of excitement by tbe arrival of nn Immense school of black-
fish which were ou tlie tints aliasing
bait, as the small ttsli they feed on nre
called, and gradually working inshore.
The news spread like wildfire. Village stores wore hastily closed, schoolboys deserted schoolrooms, nnd even
women flocked to tho shore, 'i'he flats
alonjj, the const make out from half to
n mile and n half practically level and
almost dry at low tide where at high
tide is four to eight feot of water. No
school of blai'ktash so large as thin bad
ever beon heard of. And by good luck
the tide was ebbing.
Hastily the boats wore launched,
each taking a half do-ten men nnd
boys, those not rowing being armed
with sticks and pieces of board. In a
quarter of an bour they were in position in half circle and to leeward of
the fish.
"Close ln now." came from the "commodore," "and mnke all the noise you
can!" And they did, fairly churning
lhe water with boards and sticks. The
thousands ot squid and herring on
which the blackfish wore fi*eding assisted in this movement by getting Into nbonl water us fur ns possible so
thnt tlie bliiikfish could not follow
tliem. The result was Inevitable. The
fast ebbing tide scon began to leave
llie big fish In such Fhoal water that
it was difficult for the larger ones to
swim. Gradually the circle of boats
drew nearer and nearer, and In two
hours 00 per cent of the entire school
wns stranded on the flats. For weeks
afler the villagers wore engaged In
cutting up aud trying out the nil. The
total catch netted some (25,000, many
of the fish weighing two tons apiece.—

Dogs In china are chiefly .despised,
except as houso workers or for culinary purposes. A Mack dog with yellow eyebrows is valued ns a first rate
house dog. but n white ono with black
eyebrows will bring luck to his owner,
while a black dug is the king of his
race.    A  "Hon dog "--belonging to tlie
small, shaggy northern breed-will
bring good fortune, while tho only real
Chinese canine pet is the "sleeve dog,"
so called from being small enough to
lie  III  the capacious  Celestial   sleeve.
Retrievers   nre   apparently   unknown,
while greyhounds are lanky and slow.

A Scotchman, suid to be the hist of

could carry a 24 pounder cannon and
hnd been known to lift a cart load of
liny weighing a ton and a half upon
bis back. Many a time he took up a
jackass nnd, carrying lt on his shoulders, walked through the tollgate.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER llth, 1903.
Sjocan's member cast his initial rote
jn tho house for the government. It
was thought ho would.
Don't let the old year pass away
without paying your debts. Start the
new yem* with a clean slate and keep
it thai way.
A majority of six is not so bad, such
lieing the strength developed by the
Conservatives on the first division in
tho legislature. A majority like tlu-,t
tends to ensure confidence.
Of the total appropriations voted
the Slocan riding for 1903, $9536.60
has been expended. Future expenditures will not lie of a lavish character,
the finances of tlio province not war-
' ranting it. ___________
The legislature is adjourning this
week till after the holidays, meeting
again on the llth of January. In the
meantime the government can obtain
an idea how the country views its now
ossfjssment act.
A bill has been passed through the
legislature repealing the increase in
the poll tax from $3 to 85. The increase should never have lieen made,
and it is well the government were
discreet enough to withdraw. The
poll tax at any figure is no genera'
favorite with fhe people.
The opposition permitted the speech
from tho throne to be adopted without
a division. Judging from the mild
tenor of their criticisms, the Liberals
must have felt the situation was bo-
yoad them. Conservatives have grappled with -the affairs of the province
with a master hand and are making
their opponents respect their ability.
Hawthornthwaite gave Mclnnes.the
would-be leader of tho Grits, a deep
thrust lietween the ribs last week*
Roplying to a sarcastic fling from the
member for Alberni, the formor stated
the Socialist vote would never be
found supporting in office any party
with which Mclnnes was connected.
Wullie's sins bave found him out, to
the detriment of the Liboral party.
Kootenay Conservatives are alive to
the need of immediate organization for
contesting   the   coustituoncy   in  the
Dominion  elections,   which   are  ex-
pectad to take place the end of January or the middle of   February.   A
convention has Ix-en called to  choose
a candidate at Nelson on January (i.
