A  Weighty neanon.  Before a certain gentleman set out  lor Japan 'and India his,relatives gave  him errands. One wanted an Indian  shawl, another a silver Buddha, a  third a chryselephantine carving, and  so on. till the list of commissions was  appalling. He agreed, however, to fill  them so far as possible.  But when he returned he had executed but one of the nineteen commissions  that had been given him., lie had  brought back only the chryselephantine  (.arvmg. 'This he gave to one smiling  cousin amid the disappointed looks of  the-other relatives. Why, tho disappointed ones asked, had he executed  that one particular commission and disregarded tlie rest?  The traveler smiled. "It happened,"  lie began quietly, "that each of you had  written your commission on a sheet of  paper. On the second day of tho voyage out I took all these sheets of paper  from my notebook, opened them and  .-pread them on my lfll) as I reclined in  my steamer chair.  "The air was very still at the time,  but suddenly a brisk wind sprang up,  and every sheet was blown away except that of Cousin Max.

cause  of   the   trouble   is   that tHe
Americans   have  the  sea near the
mouth   of^the   Kraser   lined  with

���' Our conservative"'confreres'"'are
strong on guessing, l/utnitterly unreliable J>h prophecy, though,- pcr-
hapsT-not 'more^so -than in ����� their
dealings with political (matters'in

gives them 'much"needless trouble

So Ions, has'thia continued that<
one would1 think thevJ would set
tired of fciich a ivain repetition of
unfulfilled prophecy, but they are
still at it, delightfully* obtuse as to
the laughing-stock, tliey are making
of themselves, even among' the
thinking portion of their own party.
But to drop this perennial theme
'would be to destroy one of their'
stale aiKi, ancient so-called arguments which, they, with such prodigality, di^h'up tO( their readers as
important political news, but
which, when boiled down; are
simply the idle vaporings oi
inanity- *"~  r ^     ~'~ '.' ~ 7
One day they denounce' 'Laurier
for calling an election before the
statutory time'", and so taking an
undue advantage'of ,the conservative paity; while ^the next day
they announce, vith, a great
flouri=h of rhetorical - buncombe
arid simulated indignation, that^he
dare not appeal to the country at
, present for fear of being beaten at
the polls. Jt therefore follow^ that,
no matter what couise in taken,
our conservative friend*- are bou:id
to have an able-bodied grievance
on their hand-.
Jf it would not  be  thought presumptuous on the part of the Mail,
we would like to assure our friends, j

by reformers '.and conservatives
alike,' that the ' Laurier < ac.lniinis-

he usually scored in the debate.     But

the ie-t  of   Mr. B01 den's   lieutenants
can talk' by  the hour,  day, week or

most ineffective of,weapons.    Tlie (lis

We may say here that we have lately  hciud several complimentary references to the music of our band, and  the hope expressed that their open air  concerts may be of more frequent  occurrence. The1 music furnished a  week ago, on Front street, was much  enjoyed by the guests at the hotels' as  well as by tho lesidents of tli.it part of  the city. The excellence to which the  band has attained is largely due to the  untiring dibits of their leader, R. H.  Sawyer.      L  ARRESTED  FOR COINING  Spurious Money.  The establishment of new industries  is generally comnvendable, but it-has  its limitations, the  principal" one   of  which is that such an" industry must  tend-to the good, of the community  and the wbiId at large. ���������    One   of the  safeguards of   mod ere 'finance is that  all ��������� coin'  for   circulation   as   money  must be made in a mint under special  supervision of 'constituted   authority.  Gold, silver, or any other metal,  may  be bought and sold like other articles  of'meichandise, but the law allows'no  one to mint coin,,^ purporting   to  be  curre'nt'"money,    even ' though   the'  metal be up to the standard "of purity.  But when coin of base metal  is made  and circulated as.the'genuine article,  the'crime is greater, unci" tho  punishment more,severe.    , Who would have  thought   that   Revelstoke,  the-good,  would have a citizen'that would   take  such   'unlawful    means    to    acquire  wealth ?    But  that such is  the case  the sequel will show.^  "For some time  the   slot ' musical   machine   tat, the  Climax Hotel has been the depositary  of spurious 50 cent pieces, and a watch  was set to find out "the guilty  person.  Suspicion evidently fastened -itself'on  an        old        resident        of, ,  , the'  city and an ex-deputy sheriff.

,   The   B. 'C.  Electric'Railway Com-

tramways of, Vancouver,   New   Wcst-

.  -baking,tin: install.ition   oi   one  of the
ifinest water power equipments   in the
"<��� -world.     The   wotk consists of a huge
concrete   dam    at Lake  Beautiful,'on
Burrard    Inlet,   about   tweUe ,'milcs
���above the city   of   Vancouver.      The
Like is situated   half ,i   mile   from the
fchoie of the inlet, and at mi elevation
of'100 ft.   above   sea level.      On, the
' shore of the  inlet n   power  house h,.s
lieen built of granite .mil hailing into
it from the dam abo\e aie   three steci
pipe lines, each four and a halt feet in
diameter.      These pipes connect with'
buge Relton,  wheels,   and   each pipe
line, Polton and  generator is  capable!,,-
of developing 3000 horse   power.      A ��� ?)m)
'  smaller pipe line,  leads   to  the motor
���which rum- the exciter.    Outlets have]
been provided at  the  dam *for  seven j
jnoro  pipe-lines,   thus  constituting a'
system   capable  of developing 30.000
.horse power.      A   million dollars has
.-already been expended in the work.
Connected   with   the  system is another   enterprise   gigantic   in   itself.
Separated from Lake   Beautiful   by   a
lofty mountain   is Coquitlam Lake, a
iarge sheet of water, the tource of the
<Coquitlam   river    which   joins     the
J?ra/.er above New Westminster.    The
level of this lake is 30   ft.   above Lake
.Beautiful, and   a   tunnel is being run
4o connect   the ��t\\0   lakes   so   as to
-afford   ample   supply   of    water   for
power purposes"    This tunnel is being
���driven through solid granite  and will
be two   and   a   half   miles in length
-when ��� completed.       An   electrically
operated   tramway h.is   been   run the
length of the tunnel as the work  proceeded.    K.ind air drills arc tif-ed.    .So
��ll'iciently has the work been   planned
siiid   carried   out   that,   though   tho
tunnel has been run half irs dUtaiice,
"the work is proceeding  nt   rapidly  as
���when beginning from the portal.   The
steel  pipe  lines   were constructed by
the   Vancouver    Kngintoring   Works
and   arc   a   credit   to local industry.
The enterprise, in its conception  and
achievement, is a credit to the   Manager   of   the   company,   .Mr. Btint^en,
-who has thus demonstrated the use to
-which   the   groat   water   powers    of
British Columbia   mountains   maybe
311U in   the   promotion   of  industries,
iind who has thus successfully applied
ihe   most,    economical    system     for
generating  the  power   necessary   for
operating   the   great   enterprises   of
-.vliich he is the head.

Here are to be found  all the elements,
required to  constitute a rich and progressive .district,' consisting of , rich
agricultural soil, magnilicent herbage
for cattle, sheep  and   horses, a salubrious climate,' favorable to health and
fruit growing, together with boundless
foicsts   of   timber.    Throughout   the
valley are scattered ranches and farms,
and during the past year considerable
att- ntion has been   given to the cultivation of cereals. ""
The nutritious grasses of the foothills on both side's of the valley afford
ample food supply for horses, cattle
and sheep, abundance,of good water, it
light snow fall and moderate climate
make this an ideal country for stock
Considerable attention is given to
fruitgrowing. At Wasa, Tracy creek.

orchards which are doing well. Tt is
estimated that several thousand fruit
trees, which have been ordered, will
be set out next spring. Small fruits,
such as stiiawlierri.es, raspberries, currants and gooseberries do well and are'
exceptionally luscious.' The local
market is large, and will steadily develop, owing to the rapid development
nf'the mining industry, and the increase of railway interests by the construction of the Kootenay Central

Quartz  veins somewhat   mineralized,  occur.near tlie Uonlon   wagon   road.  A jather strong vein   of mineralized  quartz occurs on the lake shoi'e,below  Abraliniiison creek.' On the mountain  slopes southwest of the valley, isolated  groups-'of chums have_ been  staked,  practically along the'whole 'length of  the valley,  some of   thein furnishing  very iproinising looking siimples. From  the position and number of these locutions, this'may bo considered to  form  a thiid mineraPbclt.'     That   the   locations have not been niore numerous  may -p'eilmps   be   explained by (tho  dilliculties in the way of prospecting,  due to the   vegetation   and to lack of  facilities for getting supplies into this  part of the distiict.,    'The Lucky Boy'  claim on th'e shoulder of the hill south  depth  of [Trout   creek,   about   tlnec   miles  from/Trout' Lake   City,   is being developed^ aiid   is   shipping   some' ore.  'Seveial ���������-open ' cuts   and ,,one,or two  inclines have been run on 'the 'main  vein, which varies fiom   a   few inches  to seveial feet  wide.  , In   the   main  stope   it   pitches   south-westward at  rather a high7'-angle..   7But   for   the'  most part ( it'is   almost   horizontal,  with perhaps a slight south-westerley  dip,-cuttin'g almost at right angles the  formation, (schist or altered   silicified  phyllites), which dips  north-eastward  at   an "angle' of 'about' So- degrees.  There   are   several   parallel ��������� fissui'es  which   are ' not   so  well mineralized.  Some inclusions of country rock,occur  in these and there is'evidence   of   replacement.     The quartz is somewhat  cjrusy,   and 'the   ore   often   occupies  these   druses   or     occurs     sciitteied  through   the .quartz, ( in - kidney   or  almond-shaped   masses,   or   as.small  vein lets.

It is very rare to find a  llayer deliver his stone in such a way  }s to send it straight to the mark,  /hich, given pei fectly fair ice, it  I/ould do if it were prevented from  lurning. As the player dehveis his  jtone he imperceptibly inclines the  Biandlc inwardly 01 outwai dly���������if in-  Ivardly, then the stone gyrates on its  Jentrc from left to right, and if the  jiottom'is small on which it runs, and  Jhe-ice keen, a veiy moderate twist  ivill make it fall to the right, perhaps  li couple or more feet. Of course if  nutwardly the opposite effect is pro-  jiuced, and it is considered of prime  Importance that a skip should be able  Jo cither twist, as by that means he  j.vill often be enabled to reach a stone  that otherwise would be safe from a  Uraight shot. With young players it  F^Jangerous to allow them to experiment in twisting, as they are almost  rtain if they get off the natural, to  !"e far too much power to the hand  ball,  it  hot  only bioke  up   the  lead  ' but sent the stone it stiuck first into  a   thousand   pieces,   to     the     intense  amusement   01   his   loidship   and   the  "���������spev-tatois     Xot    so    howevci,   'felt  ihe pooi   weavci   to  wjioni  the  stone  had  belonged,  .is  he  sadlv   gazed  on  the     dcstiuction     that     had       been  vvi ought, but his son owing was soon  tinned to lCjoicmg when his loidship  oulered a pan of his own, with coio-  'net caivcd upon them, to be bi ought  irom  the house, gi acefully pi csentcd  them  to  him, and  so, made  the  happiest man on  the ice.

I  |ave  promised  to   say  something  of  Twisting, l 1  jnd I may as well introduce the sub-  Sect here.    It is  very rare  to  find a  |layer deliver his stone in such a way  (s to send it straight to    the   mark,  vhich, given  pei fectly    fair    ice,    it  l/ould do if it were   prevented   from  miming.    As  the player delivers  his  Jtone he imperceptibly   inclines    the  Biandle inwardly or outwardly���������if in-  Jvardly, then the stone gyrates,on its  Tentre from left to right, and/ if the  Jio'ttom is small on which it runs, and  (he ice keen,  a very ^moderate  twist  Jvill make it fall to the right, perhaps  11 couple or more feet.    Of course if  putwardly the opposite effect is produced, and it,,is considered of prime  Importance that a skip should be able  lo either twist, as by that means he  i.vill often be enabled to reach a stone  that otherwise ..would be safe from a  jjtraight shot.   With young players it  ,3angerous to allow them to experi-  Jncnt in twisting, as they are almost  rtain if they get off the natural, to  (re far too much power to the hand-  and thereby the stone loses force  thing  like   the  velocity  of  a  cannon  bajl)   it  not  only'bioke   up   the  lead(  btit sent th'e stone it stiuck first into,  a "thousand   pieces, * to i'the     intense  amusement   of   his   lordsliip" and   the  %pectatois     Xot    so    howevei,    telt^  | the poo'r weavei   to whom  th'e stoncs  [ had  belonged,"as' he sadly gazed  on  } the     destruction     that     had       been  I wiought, but his soirow 111? was soon  tinned to lejoicmg when his loidship  ordered a pair of his oun, with coio-  net caived upon them, to be bi ought  tiom  the  house, giacefully presented  them  to  him, and  so "made  the  happiest man on the ice  I have noticed the 'game in its  healthful and social aspects, I would  now say a word on the  ������ Charity  it draws foith ,When Scotland was  a much poorer^countty than it is now  theic was less 1e.1l povet ty"and destitution than at present pievails In  those not veiy 1 emote daya the game  ".as nirlulged^ in by a wider cu cle  tlian 7s to be found engaging in it  now, and the contests \\ere tiequcnth-  tor a 'beef and gicens dinner," and  the game ' being played ovei , again  with many additions, at the testive  vboai d .
