Revelstoke, B.C.'  FRIDAY; MARCH, 30, 1CU0.  ,\Viiilk'some local Jibera's   ate   agitating themselves over parly   lines   or  , no party lines,   with   or   without'Mr.  Miit tin as   a   leader,   that   gentleman  'goes on consulting nobody but himself.  ' He marie a platform first and then has  a   convention   called    to   discuss   the  ' provincial situation. - He declines his  a liberal government but while, there  are numbers of good provincial liberals  who have borne the burden and heat,  (if the, diV'in ,the legislature and on  the hustings, he finds but- entire  strangers to-public life to take office  with him. His candidates are already  announced in one 'or two districts,  without question of party lines or, endorsement of local liberal feeling, and  he has already started his campaign  for the approaching elections..   This is  ' all very significant of the future, very  characteristic of the man. ���������  It indicates to us, we are sorry to  say, that Mr," Martin -proposes no  "matter what this proposed convention  does that he is going to cling to the  position given him by the governor  no matter what action theb convention  . takes and bv thus earlv forcing his  claim's and making his own position, to  force himself upon that assemblage for  , increased consideration. If he is a  liberal leader it should be by choice,  and not by force, if he   is   the   mouth-  - piece of liberalism it,should be on , the  declared and accepted platform iu convention assembled that he stands, not  on his take it or leave it challenge.  If his is to pose as a liberal government it should be representative' of  what, is truest and tried in this  country, not composed of men who are  "new" in the public eye and untried ,  iti the'public service.  - rIf in fact he is to be the representative of provincial liberalism he should  ere this have given more proof of it or  of his ability to secure sufficient ' unanimity to make victory reasonably  secure. His is not. we. - fear, 'that  character essential to leaders ot men as  gratulation if the efforts now being  made to settle the mining dispute in  Kootenay are crowned with success.  Ralph Smith, M. P. P., is on the.  ground at the request of the Minister  of Mines, and Mr. Clute, Dominion  Commissioner, is also there at lequest  of both parties to the dispute to act as  an.intermediary. Roth mine owners  and miners are approaching'the subject in a sensible way in the interests  of the industry and this augurs well  for the success of, the commissioner's  verdict as though his decision is not  binding, mutual agreement can make  it so if the parties are sincerely  anxious for settlement.,     ' '      '  Africa Since Discovery.

This work,  the joint production of two eminent  historians, is indispensable, .to all who  would keep iu touch with history as it  is making every day, and who appreciate the value of an intelligent knuw-  ledge of passing events. ��������� The volume  contains about six hundred pages,  beautifully illustrated, from photographs taken on the spot, and containing the best work of .American and  foreign -artists. ��������� Price, according to  style of 'binding, ranges from $2.(K) to  $1.50.

A correspondent of  the Vancouver  World writing from Salmon Ann says:  The liberals of Salmon, Arm met in Mc-  Guiic's Hall on  Monday,  March   12th,  to consider the  present political  situ-  i  ation. Speeches were delivered by A.  T. 'Palmer, A. B. Ctirrie ' and" A.  SunmerV'all of whom condemned the  late St'tnlin'goveruinent for its boyish  pranks in the house la.st session. d-Iuii.  Mr. JMartin's platform was taken up  titid thoroughly discussed. It was  then moved and seconded, that the following resolution should be passed and  sent to various papers forpublication:  (1) Moved by S. M. McGniie, and  seconded by A. B. Currie, that we  should contest the coming'provincial  elections on straight party lines.  (2) That a convention of all the  liberals of. the province should be held  in Kamloops on or about April 15th.  l3> That this association has no fair.h  in the party led by F. L.

Copyright. 1S03, by Ervin ll'ardman.  ���������' .Itos.sini was happy���������happy as a child  oir Christmas eve. LTis national hymn for  the Italian people had been accepted graciously by the kins, who showed his, ap-  < prcciation by presenting to the composer  a magnificentWatch. llossini never tired,  of i-howing it to his friends, and they  we're enthusiastic in Admiration, of its  costly' workmauship and the,number of  unrivaled diamonds sot'in the case.  "Ai. royaUuliitmond  for every note,-si-  gnors," the master is recorded as saying  lo a gathering of friends, "and by press-f  iux a  spring it plays the prayer in my  composition 'Moses.' "  '  ,   Sis years passed. '   ,.  One day its the great Italian composer  was sitting in' a cafe he was asked "to  ' show his timepiece. Rossini touched the  device, and while his friends listened and  marveled the watch played in'exquisite  harmony the prayer of the ancient prophet.  , 'A stranger who'was seated'in a corner  of the cafe rose and said, "Signor, you  have a lino watch, but I'll waiter a large  sum of money that you do not know all  of its various capacities."  "Signor," said.ltossini in surprise, "for  six years  1   have carried this watch in  -   honor of my  king, and in that time it  never has  lost or gained a minute.    It  chimes tho  hours' and the quarters/ "its  dial denotes the minutes and the date of  'tlie  month,   and   it  plays,   as  you, have  'hent'd, the prayer in 'Moses.' "  - The straujrer smiled aud shrugged his  '  shoulders.   "Nevertheless, I maintain my  claim. HI wager as much as 10,000  francs against your watch that you do  not know fully its mechanical abilities."  The,stranger's confident assertion baffled Rossini. For-a momeent he seemed  to pouder the full meaning of tho offered  wager.' .  "Well, if you have 10,000 francs to risk  I am willing to call it a bet iu the presence  of  these  gentlemen.     (Jo on   and  prove your, claim if you can.'/'   -  "Nothing is easier for me," responded  the stranger calmly. "Tho watch plays  more than one of your compositions, master. It also contains your postscript, and  within it is engraved an inscription which  is worth a hundred times the value of the  entire watch."        ���������   ,    " , t    '      .  In   amazement   Rossini   watched -the  \ stranger 'as he  took the timepiece and  touched several blind springs which opened the outer case and showed an inner  casing with   the composer's  portrait  in  'miniature, while..the mechanism played a4*  selection from tho opera "Taucrcdi."'  ,-"Deo aim diavolo!" exclaimed Rossini,  "you have won the bet, and'I���������I am a  ruined man.    I've offended the" king and  lost my watch.   You must be a magician.  How  do  you  know the  secrets of the  ���������watch?" - -    .      .   '  The stranger, laughed heartily. ' "Don't  take the matter to heart, signor. I am  Michel PliveiV the maker of this watch,  and only I know its secrets. Take it  back. I do not want it. I. wagered in  jest, but I am glad that you - appreciate  my workmanship,' great master."  Three explained to Rossini the intricate  mechanism, but when the composer inquired about the inscription' on the portrait casing to which Plivco had alluded  the latter requested him not to urge him*  for an answer.  But the curiosity of the "Wizard of  Pesaro" w;is roused, and ho insisted on  - being shown the inscription.  Pliree was silent for a moment, but  finally he took tho watch and pointed out  the inscription.  "There it is.. Look close and you will  find three numbers���������6, 81, Gl���������on the reverse of'the plate. That ia all I can tell  you."  "Whall" ejaculated the master. "Is  thai all? 'Are these three numbers worth  n hundred limes more than the watch? It  can't be right.   What do you meanV"  "It is a secret I dare not betray yet,"  hlghcrf the famous watchmaker.  Uut Rossini insisted now more than bc-'  . fore on its beinir interpreted to him. Ho  wished to know if he should choose the  figures for lottery numbers, and he asked  if there was something about it that  niicht be figured out by tho employment  vt arithmetic.  J$iir Plivee remained imperturbable and  would not disclose (lie secret. ('  ���������'Then when will you tell mo the moaning of those mysterious figuresV" asked  .Rossini impatiently.  ������������������-WltiMi limo is," was 'the melancholy'  answer.  The FuiTcoy of the meaning of the figures lr'1'1 a deep impression on the uaLu-  rally superstitious temperament of the'  composer, and his ineffectual attempts to  discover it caused him many sleepless  hours. He continued to be friendly willy  the watchmaker, but whenever he ap-j  proac'ied the latter for enlightenment regarding the inscription he was informed,'  that'the lime had not arrived. - '  * r. * * * *    I      *    '  The i:jlh ilny of November, 18G0, was  H dnlt   -linv dtiv.   Rossini wos sitting as'  ms-hiii in tits study during the early morning hours. lie had been working on u  prelude for a new composition, (ho frag-  'h.-entury score 'of which was strewn  .ibo-JJt on (he floor, but he hnd given it up  in drX'-ur. Jli.' was sitting by the window, loiiKiiig i������to the garden which surrounded his bailee.  ,Tty dvwlvol $j* Win Kg typist  the low slanting swallows Impressed liiiu  like mournful music, and it soothed him  , to sit there and listen to it in quietude.  He was an old man uott.  It seemed strange, but the more he  thought of it the more the fact impressed  him that since his meeting with the  watchmaker he never had been truly happy or contented.  The drizzle of the autumn rain and the  chirp of the swallows wove themselves  iuto music, and as he listened he seemed  to distinguish some of his own music in  it. A few strains only that died away,  and then again it was only drizzle, drizzle and chirp,, chirp, and then the lost  strains came again' and 'floated through  tho somber drizzling and plaintive chirping, and before he knew it 'th? music of  the prayer in "Moses" was plainly audible.  Willi a' choked shriek tho old master  jumped to his feet. He snatched the  watch from his pocket. Michel Plivee's  masterpiece was playing of itself! Human hand had not touched ft!  *    -     * * * * a *,  ' A few minutes afterward a messenger  "called at the study to deliver a letter and  found the old master in' a swoon. When  he recovered and saw whom tho note was  from, he told those who attended lum to  leave the room., lie then read ihe following letter:   r  Honored Master���������Now is the time. Come to' my  bouse at midnight and 1 shall tell you the valuable meaning of the ciphers 0, SI, 61. UinU ie-  Sards.    Your obedient servant,  ������        , MiCHEL rUTSE.  Rossini opened the window and shouted  for the messenger. The boy heard him  and returned. '  ."Is Signor Plivee ill?" asked the mas-'  tor. <���������  "No, signorrhe is well." c  "Then tell him I shalUbe with him at  the appointed time."  aTlie mysterious appointment at the/  hour of midnight and the possibility of  the fulfillment of a desire, he had nourished.-for soimauy years combined to raise  tho nervous temper of the old master to  its highest pitch. He attempted to shorten the hours by playing.- lie'could not  oplay to siiit'diiinself." JFe could neither  read nor write, and he .would not talk or  partake of food. All day and all evening  the "Wizard of Pesaro", could be heard  pacing about in his lonely study. -s  * * * *    -    ��������� *        '���������  As the cathedral chimes struck 12 Ros-  siui knocked at the door of Plivee's house.  A .pale,  tear stained' face looked  out.  Moaning and weeping sounded within., ���������  "My God!    What's happened?" 'cried  , the artist.   '   . ,  Kemcau, the celebrated physician,,  came to the door and said: "Only a few  mi miles ago Signor Plivco, our-beloved  boat, was sitting among us, hale aud  hearty. Suddenly, he had aheart stroke  and fell from his chair, crying, "The ciphers���������the ciphers;? His "death was instantaneous. I' do not know what he  meant by,'the ciphers.'   Do you?"  The- news so shocked the impressionable composer that he almost fainted.  Whence was questioned as to the cause  of his late visit, he shrewdly avoided an  explanation, for he was seized by tho fear  that the inscription would bring him only  distress aud uuliappiness.   ''  "I never want to hear another word  about'him," he told his, wife, who anxiously awaited his return. "These figures mean death."  Prom that day Rossini put the costly  timepiece away in his dressing chest and  in its place- wore a common watch. He  declined, to give his wife permission to  obtain' some clew from Plivee's widow  regarding the probable existence of papers containing the key to 'the solving of  the figures, and he made' every effort to  forget the matter.  Eight years passed. Gioachino, An-  .touio Rossini was on his deathbed. The  passing "away of the great artist was'  gradual aud slow" Stop by step he was  sinking into tho arms of death. But  there were moments when ��������� he roused  himself, as it'were, to consciousness.  . On, the last morning several letters  from friends and relatives arrived con-  - taining encouraging messages for the old  master.- .While his wife was occupied  iu reading them for him Rossini discovered, among the many dainty cards and  envelopes a large envelope addressed to  him personally. Seizecl by an inexplicable and.marvelous fright and horror he  whispered with parched lips: "What Is  this?   Quick���������look and see what it is!"  But -before Signora Rossini could open  the envelope ,the old composer sat up  .stiff on his pillows. His lips moved  ���������without emitting a sound, bis eyes glared dreadfully, and he motioned his wife  lo listen.  ��������� There! Michel Plivee's masterpiece,  which for years had been locked up in  the dressing chest, was playing.' It played a new melody, the aria "Di tanti  palpiti." Huiuan hand had not touch-  ,ed it!  Signora Rossini was stricken with termor. ' Tremblingly she opened the mys-  .'terious envelope. Her husband seized  the contents. One long, awful stare", and  the old artist fell back on his pillows  with a wild cry: "I knew it! ' It meant  .death!"  .' He clutched'tho papers so light in his  death grasp that it was difficult, to get  'them out of his 'hands. The contents  .were three checks on the bank of Milano.  bearing tho numbers G. .'31 and Gl and  amounting to over a million francs.  !
