This fall a number* of new buildings  are being erected in the burned district.  Fletcher & Fletcher have rebuilt the  Grand Central Hotel, T. A. Garland,  the drygoods man, has-built a handsome two stoiey frame ; the Byoi's  Hardware Co. occupy a fine building  on the opposite'side of the street from  the old store. The agency of the Bank'  of Montreal,'Chisholm's grocery and  other business houses occupy new sites  on upper Front street and a new���������busi-  ness block is approaching completion  on the lot below where the Ccem*  d'Alene Hotel stood in ante-fire times.  John Keen's two storey building, at the  corner of Third and Front streets, is  occupied as the district Government  recording office, telegraph office and  i*esidence. 11. Geigerich has rebuilt his  warehouse aiid>will erect a much larger  store than the temporary quarters he  has been occupying siiice the fire.  Quite a strike of dry silver ore has  been recently made on Blue' Ridge  creek. Three assays gave 1,800 ozs.  It has long been claimed that, the dry  ore belt to the north of Watson carries  its course well toward Kootenay Lake,  and the recent find appears to bear out  this theory. It is quite well demonstrated that plenty of dry ore will be  at hand when a local market is established to use such a product, and that  tlie smelting plant at Pilot Bay can  secure all that is necessary to mix with  the galena ores.

At least half,  and possibly two-thiuls, will go-out over the  Nelson & Fort Shepard and Spokane &  Northern.   Air. IT. G.Stiunnel, formerly of Spokane but now resident freight  agent for Air.  D.  C.  Corbin, is <very  diligent in  rustling up business.for the  lines he represents and no doubt will  have the main bulk of this traffic.  ��������� The snow is gradually creeping down  from the summits of the higher mountains towards the shores of the lake, so  that by another  month at the farthest  the   raw-hider  and   the mule-skinner  will be  busy keeping the ore moving  from mine to steamboat.

The process is  also patented and in use in America.  ��������� Sir John Thompson, the Canadian  Premier, left .London for Paris last  Saturday on important business. He  said that on' his return he might be  able to .'make public what had been  done in regard to Dominion affairs.  A. company has been formed , to resuscitate the Calgary Herald and publish daily and-weekly editions. The  officers of tlie new company are* Harry  Syrno'ns, president ;','Hon. J. H. Loug-  hecd, vice, and John A. Reed, editor  and manager.  Father Schrbfelle, a well '' known  Omaha priest, became violently insane  at tlie'JMillard House, in that city, last  Friday. He *-liad a revolver ' and declared he was the Emperor of Germany  and would kill anyone who approached  him, unless of equal rank.  A man reached Kalispell from" Tobacco Plains, B.C., 90 miles north,  bringing' news of a murder. The  bearer or? the message was a Polander,  who could not ��������� speak" English. ��������� He  had an envelope upon the back of  which was written : , " Tell the sheriff  to come at once; man murdered here."  No further particulars were, i*eceived.,  Would this be Allowed in the States ?  The Victoria correspondent of   the.  Winnipeg Commercial, speaking of the  hali but fishery, says :    " The New England Company have shipped 20,000 lbs.  to the United States' markets and the  American Company 30,000  lbs.    The  Now  England Co. have dismissed .all  J^ir^J^ariadian   connections   and are  rimiiing^-trT^i'iusiness entirely on Cana-  dian  capital am^with , United States"  employes. ' The. first cargo of the New  England Co. was ,90,000 lbs. of fish"? on  ' which, after paying all expenses, they  cleared $3,000 which was  immediately  sent out of the country. The American  halibut company have several British'  Columbia stockholders' but .the heaviest stock holders,are also in  the States  and  are drawing the   lion's   share of  dividends.   The'halibut industry as it  is now carried on is very remunerative.  The   New   England   Co.,   at   present  making so much money, put up $2,000  in 'actual cash for running expenses.  They were reimbursed by their' first  trip,   besides  which   they had   $1,000  to the good.    Their- running expenses  have since been paid with the proceeds  from   the  sale   of  fish   in   the   local  markets."  THINGS SAID AND DONE ABOUT  '  ���������      TOWN.  [BY   DI0GEXE3.]  'In response to the sincere desire expressed by many of your readers, Diogenes has returned'to his scribbling,  like a dog to his bone, fit has heen a  great surprise and gratification to me  to know that my poor efforts have re-j  'ceivedrsuch widespread approval, not  only amongst the more sensible of your  .reader's, but also in the columns of several of your contemporaries. I am  afraid that some, friends and supporters  of tho Mail have rated my writings a  little tooliigh, and that my later productions will, in consequence, appear  flat and stale. Be this as it may, I am  greatly encouraged by such signs of  approval as has reached me in my  lowly retreat, and henceforth I do not  think I shall he scared by,"the vapor-  ings of oiu* old women,"as your corres-'  pondent last week puts it.

A man may lay bricks, or  lay down the law, but it takes alien to  lay eggs,'and I do not at,present require any other kind of laying done  for me. In the words of the immortal  Shakspere, I can only say to "One who  noes," "Lay on, Macduff IV  <* . ������  .     , * ������ ��������� *  The complaint known as land hunger  , appears to have attacked some of our  citizens pretty badly.- The land north  of the railway track, which was surveyed and staked out in five-acre blocks  two or three years ago, is being "taken  up"-by" some enterprising .'parties,  prominent and otherwise, who' desire  to nave the, "first pick." Houses, cottages and chicken ranches have been  erected with the idea' that when the  land is put,up at auction no 'one,will  bid against those in possession, this  being a recognized custom in'this part  of the country. But I have it on the  most reliable,auth6rity that, in case  the Dominion Government wins,' this  land will not be sold by auction, but  will he offered first to the people of  Revelstoke at a certain price. Speculator's'will not be able to get hold of it  before our people ha-ve had the refusal  of it.    x' \  THE PACIFIC CABLE.'  Six Tenders Opened at Ottawa, but the  Figures are not Made Public.  The proposals for the making, laying  and-maintenance of thecPacific cable  were opened at Ottawa/ last, Friday,  by Hon. Mckenzie BoweJlj assisted by'  Mr. Sanford Fleming-, and Mr. W. BL  Mercer, of the Colonial Office, England..  The definite proposals were six in number, as follow:  1. Francis   A.  Bower,   of  3   King's  Anns Yard, London. <  2.

One very  noticeable  feature   of   the, tenders ie  that none of them make any difference  in" the routes by-way'of Ne'ekar Island  as comparedwiththat of Panning Island, so that the consent of the Hawai- .  ian and United States Governments'is  -"'  not of so  much'  importance as it was  thought it might be.

Reported Sale of .the Sultana -Mine.  Itjs generally Understood in mining  circles that the negotiations which  have been in progress for some ,time  for the sale of Lake of the "Woods mining properties to an English syndicate  have, resulted in the disposal of the  Sultana urine for a figure considerably  over $200,000. General Wilkinson is  ���������said to be at the head of the syndicate.  The Sultana mine, which is only now  in the development, stage, has been  turning out between $1,000 and $1,200  weekly from a single shaft for some  time past.  Mortally Wounded While Hunting.  Nelson Tribune: A man named  John Keppler, was mortally wounded  while hunting along with Gus Adams  at the lower end of Kootenay lake on  Thursday afternoon. The shot entered  one leg above the knee and ranged up  into the body. Adams rowed the  wounded man to the reclamation  works, reaching there at 1 o'clock on  Friday morning, He was taken aboard  (he steamer Nelson on Friday afternoon, and the wound was dressed by  Eli Smith, the steward of the boat.  At Bonner's Ferry the doctor- who examined the wound said it was mortal  and that death would surely result.  The Monster Canadian Cheese.  Belter Read This.  "Writing of the cheese exhibition at  the recent dairy show at Islington,  London, the Live Stock Journal remarks : The groat cheese, which was  one of the wondeis of the. World's  ���������Fair at Chicago last year, was made  from one week's milk of more than  22,000 cows, and weighed ten tons.  This cheese ultimately found its way,  as most great things seem to do, to  this country, and in the hands of Mr1.  ���������Tubal Webb, of Kensington, its fame  has been greatly extended. ��������� Tlie great  wrought-iron vat' and the massive  lor ry by whose means it was moved  about were in the dairy show, to be  seen of everybody, and also a considerable remnant of the great cheese itself, being placed on exhibition by Mr.  .Tubal Webi). It is now more tharr two  years since the cheese was made, and  it has kept good in an extraordinary  manner considering that it passed  thiough those months of tropical heat  in the Chicago Fair, and ran the gauntlet of Arctic cold in a Canadian winter.  Tho cheese is sharp to the tongue, but  it is sound and of good quality, while  in its youth the flavor must have been  of a high order,of merit.

MOST PERFECT  MADE.  A pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder.   Free  from Ammonia, Alum or any other adulterant  40 YEARS THE STANDARD.  Premier Davie, who returned from  Ottawa last week.'sitys he is confident  the Dominion Government will*recognize the validity of the patents issued  by the Provincial Government to all  hinds within the railway belt. Revelstoke towusite is in the railway belt,  and Farwell obtained a patent for it  from the Provincial Government.  Therefore, if the'Premier is confident  that Provincial titles to all lands in  the railway belt will be; recognized by  the'Dominion Government, what's the  matter with our going to work on the  basis that Farwell wins? If this be so,  some of��������� us had better be setting our  house in order preparatory to the  threatened notice to quit.  How it will go with the squatters I  have mentioned above I do'not pretend  to know. Farwell would probably re-  survey the land and plat it for town-  site lots. Those having the longest  purses would get the most land, and if  speculators from the'eoast offered more  than local buyers, of course the speculators would have it���������and hold it for a  rise, as speculators'always do. "Thus  the land would remain for years, perhaps, as it is now, covered with bush  and fallen timber. I aiii a philosopher,  not a prophet, and my prognostications may be wrong. I hope they are.  I do not wish to put a damper on enterprise, whatever shape it takes; not  even on local land grabbing.  ������  # ���������������  What has become of the Douglas  street committee and the balance-sheet  that was promised us so long ago? It  is now about a year since the citizens'  money was expended, and unless someone stirs up tho gentleman who had  L'"i handling of that money, there is  every likelihood that another year will  be allowed to elapse before the financial statement'is published. To'say  the least," this is very poor management, and the committee should see to  it that there is no. further delay. I  have been asked, on more than one  occasion, what became of the tools purchased by the committee when the  work was commenced. Until very recently 1 did not know that any tools  had been purchased. 1 understood  that each workman provided his own,  and what other1 equipment way needed  was borrowed from the Government  Agent. Dnfc, of course, if any of the  money was spent in purchasing tools it  will he made clear in the forthcoming  statement, as well as the ultimate fate  of such tools.  * *  In one of your editorials the other  day you bewail the shortncos of ready  money   in   this   town,   and   give  as  a  Wintry Weather Outside of British',  Columbia.   - ���������    .--  Very severe weather has been experienced nearly all over the Dominion-  east of the Itocky Mountains.  At Halifax and St'. John there have  been severe snowstorms.    In the latter'  city the storm disorganized street car/  electric light,and other,wires, and the '  poles" fell undei* the weight of ice."  , Four of the crew of the Annie UL  Pride   were   drowned   by. the   vessel  going ashore in the,gale at Bear Cove,'  near Halifax. -        .- ��������� ,  '*" Trains.arriving at. Montreal ;front  both ��������� east and west have broright six-  inches of snow on the car* roofs.  Two days of a cold'snap at Winnipeg  proved sufficient to cover the Ked  River with ice and open the skating  season. Near Ogilvie's mill a number  of boys were skating. The ice. was'by  no means safe,0but nof casualties are  reported.  At Calgary two boys broke through  the ice while skating, and one was  drowned. '      - '       '     ���������    ,  Rain'and snowstorms have been raging in Northern Ohio," on Lake Michigan and all over Wisconsin, greatly-  impeding traffic". Several wreck's are  reported on the lakes. *    ".  ���������*.  Fell Down the" Shaft.    ' '  ���������  At Letlibridge; Allierta, last Friday,  a miner named Ralston was. killed  in,No. 1. shaft. The. -day "shift -wW  leaving work and eight 'men "wire an-'  cending in' the cage, when by some  means' Ralston was crushed between"  the cage and the wall of the abaft,,:rmd  fell to the bottom, about 80 feet. In  falling he grasped tho sleeve'of-a lad  named Webster, who was' prevented  from being dragged over hy> another  occupant of the cage. The noise of a  .falling pail and the thud of the bndj-  striking the bottom warned those who  were waiting there that ������imethiqg bad  happened, ami the signal was at" once  given to.stop the engine. Ralston wa6  picked up dead. He came from Nebraska, where he leaves a wife  child.  and  May Lose His Head.  ��������� The Zukunft, a German newspaper,  has created a sensation by drawing' a  parallel between the Kaiser and  Charles I. of England, and predict*  that tho German ruler will meet a fate  similar to that of the English king if  he persists in his King Charles method*  of claiming that the people must  blindly concede in his policy for which  he holds himself responsible to God  alone. The paper expresses hope that  Chancellor Von Huhenlohe may bft  able, to disjwl the Kaiser's illusion that  a modern people can bo treated as a  plaything.

This is as it. should be.  "We want' no claim 'jumpers here.  Judge Crease shows his contempt i'or  the species when "he says: ."They are  the parasites' which always hang about  rich mining camps." "  . . BOLDLY ASKS FOR IT.  Oun friend, the Nelson Tribune, is  nothing if not original. - Tts originality  was never better exemplified than in  its last issue.' After poking*a little  fun air Mr. J.'A. Mara, M.P., its turns  around and makes an ingenious bid  for Government pap by the flimsy old  method of " Codlin's your friend, not  Short."  'It says:  John Andrew poses as a Protectionist, and hopes to secure a return to  Parliament by the men wlio believe  that the prof oction system is tlio best  one for Canada. -As the Tribune is the  only straight-out Protection newspaper'  in the province, Mr. Mara will, no  doubt, define his views through ,rfcs  columns, and not through thp columns  of Free Trade papers like the Kamloops  Sentinel and the Nelson Miner.  "John Andrew'' not only poses as a  Protectionist, but he is [a Protectionist  ���������as long as the United States remain so  ' highly 'protected,  conscientiously,  believing that to open our markets -free  to our neighbors while theirs is closed  to us .would ruin most Canadian industries and drive our - population to the  ��������� other side.   Evidently the Tribune has  no faith in Mr.. SJara's sincerity, since  it states that  he only./roses as a Protectionist.    To  our esteemed contemporary this may appear to be quite the  proper thing, but to more modest journals and, we believe, to must newspaper-  readers  it  seems to be nothing more  nor loss than a. "hold-up," a bold attempt  to  force   Mr. Mara into what,  may.   later  on, become  an untenable  position.    But we believe that gentleman has too much discernment to be  caught  with  the chaff so bunglingU-  strewn  in  front of ..the snare.    Such  sentiments " published "in   any   other  paper would he thought in excpediiig  bad   taste, and   even in the Tribune,  which  appears   to  have   thrown  discretion to the, winds, it is  a trifle too  glaring.    33ut timqs are hard, and the  pap so stingily doled out  to this province   by   the   Ottawa   authorities   is  worth reaching for.    As the,  Tribune  announces itself the only champion o{  Protection in the province, orhor now<=-  pnjiers not in love with Free Trade will  please get on tlie fence.

The mining business done at .the  Revelstoke office this season shows  that ten mineral and 13 placer claims  were located ; ten leases were issued in  Big Bend and two in-the Lardeau. The  revenue from miners' certificates was  $1,100; other mining receipts amounted to $I.2j0.  In Big Bend several thousand dollars  have been spent in development woi-k  during the summer. Between 70 and  SOmen have been engaged, "but there  were four or- five weeks of enforced  idleness���������in some cases more than three  months���������on ,'iccounL of the disastrous  Hoods .and washouts, which destroyed  many thousand dollars w'orth of mine  buildings, flumes, dams, etc?

Competent authorities predict that next season's'output will be  the greatest iu the. recent history of  the country.

This is quite" true;   bufc  there is another side even to this question.'-- I will rnot waste-your space ."by-  discussing the high prices which prevail here. ''We are all acquainted-with  that fact.   Many articles- are.sold here,  at three tim.es "tBe price they fetch,,! if  Toronto.   Now most, of us live on one  another and  cannot kick.; - Bat th*.  majority of those wbo( send east fort  their goods are,, no "dependent on, the  town  for, a living.    It-matters very'  little' to them whether the stores are"  doing' a large business or none at all.  Their salaries' would reach them regularly every mouth were the town non  est. ' While I- have condemned people  in business in   the, town for sending  away for goods that can   be'bought  here (they themselves having goods of  another kind tb sell, at tip-top prices),  I do not think tbe C.P.R. employes are  to be very greatly blamed for laying out  their money to-the best advantage to  themselves!   Tncjr are not interested,  iu building-up. tire .town, and 1 have  been studying-'the" maimer from their  point of view.  There is another factor which must  not be overlooked in ,casting around  for ihe causes of the tightness of money  in,this>town, and that is the competi-'  tion of tue������C.,P. R. travelling store,-  which sells a lot of goods "along the  line between Donald and Kamloops,  to the serious detriirient of .the sLore-  keepers in those and intermediate  towns. It is hardly fair play on the  part of such a great corporation as.the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  which has received so,?much*from the  country in money and lands, to compete with tbe tradesmen-in these little  mountain towns as dealers in groceries  and dry goods. No doubt many dimes  and nickels which should go into the  tills of legitimate traders in Lhe towns  situated within those two hundred odd  miles, are'gathered in to help swell the  dividends of the greatest railway in  the world, whose rails' stretch across a  whole continent' with one end washed  by the spray of the wild Atlantic arid  the other laved in the playful ripples  of'the Pacific, and yet this great company is not above turning an honest  penny by peddling, needles, pius", buttons and tapes.'       , -  Another great cause of the monetary  stringency is dishonesty. , J can find  no other name for it.

Fraser, J.P., P. R. Peterson  brought a charge of obstructing a road  against, Messrs. John and .Charles  Abrahamson, of the Central Hotel.  Defendants have a stable on their lot  on Hanson street, and last fall'1 built a  shed or lean-to , against the stable on  the street...This road has been'used by  Peterson to get to his lots, and he complained that the ei*ection prevented  his doing so. - He also complained that,  on account' of Messrs. Abrahamson's  building the shed, a Chinaman named  Ilong had. put * up a shack, closet 'and  pigf ,peri in the street a few yards  further ou and oh*'the opposite side, so'  that a wagon would have to. pick its  ���������way amongst the .stumps. Peterson  also claims that he built the road from  Abrahamson's stable to iiis loLs���������a  'distance of several hundred yards.  Peterson, who was the first witness,  being, sworn, said: In 1889 I built a  -wagon road to my loLs at the end of  Hanson street. ' When defendants  built a shed over the road I asked them  to take it down. They told me to go  round. I did not go round. I turned  back and put my team in the stable.  I then made complaint to Mr. Coursier,  J.P.; and he said nothing could be done  in the matter as the town was not incorporated. I afterwards made the  road over another man's lot.* Mr. Coursier, said he "would see what, could be  done, but nothing had been done' since.  When Mr. D"avieuwas in town I spoke  to him about- building on the streets,  and he said, "Lay your complaint at the  courthouse." He also said he would see  Mr. Graham on the matter. This was  five months ago. I: called Samuel  Needhara to see the obstruction, as I  did. not know much about the law.  The obstruction has never been removed.  Cross-examined by Charles Abrahamson: The road was blocked so  that I could not drive over it. I did  not make the road where the obstruction is, but I made the portion-from your  stable to my property. I don't know  how wide the street is at that point.  .1 think it is GO feet. ���������' A team would i*e-  quii-e about 11 feet. I don't think I  obstructed the road about the same  time you built the shed.-  By the Magistrate: Have driven  over the road-since 1S03. It kept me  from work two or three' days while  they were' building Lhe shed. IL still  obstructs a loaded wagon. ���������,,  By 0. Abrahamson : Cannot say how  many times a year I use the i*oad. I  intend building on my property and  have lumber waiLing, but cannot gcL  jL there while the road is blocked with  sheds, closets, pig-pens, etc.  ,  John'Abrahamson, sworn, said :'-We  built Lhe street from Front street to  our stable, without government or any  other aid. Before adding the lean-to  to the stable we cleaird the road outY  side so as to allow* beams'to *pa.-s. The  streeL atT that point has never, Lo my  knowledge," been obstructed. The le.-iii-  to was putu'p in-lSOii. Peterson never  complained-.to ,,ni'e about- the street  beiiig 'obsVueted, and I have never  heard Complain Ls from anyone else.  Cross-examined- by 'complainant:/ I  do noti-emember'your complaining Lo  rne aboutLhe shed.  By .Lhe Magistrate:- The street is  quite passable, iu my opinion, and the  lean-to does not  rif.erferu  with   tiaili.;  shed, and not in the new road.  i*". L. Kinmai: was e.tnplovod in build-  in the least.   Peti-r.-.on complained   to . ing the shed, and, with 11. liowson, was  IV  le of lumber, but it was close to the  me about a building, going.up on the  street, but not about the shed being an  obstruction. "  Charles Abrahamson, sworn, stated :  We built a lean-to at our stable''last  fall, after Peterson's own example. He  had a shed on another street. T made*  a road outside the lean>to, so" that  Peterson might connect with his road,  as he called it. The street did not then  extend much fui ther than our stable.  I made the road outside the shed for  Peterson's sole convenience. It was  made before the shed was .built.      .. / <  By the Magistrate: Peterson was in  a temper when I was building the shed  "and he said he could not pass with his'  team. I ��������� told, him he coulld pass,outside .on the liew road, but ho said he  wanted "to" pass on. the old one.   He  w *        *        ' *-*  (then turned back. -Nobody else ever  complained. Peterson could, have passed if he wished; '  Samuel Needham, sworn,,said: Pet-  ersnn 'came, to my place last fall and  asked me to look' at the road and what  I thought about it. I said, "Yes, you  could get across, but you would have  to go over my 'lot." ' He"then turned  back with his team. I went down to  Mr. Coursier's some time after, and he  said he would see about it. , He has  never been' there once or twice to see  about the obstructions. 'The logs, etc.  were afterwards cleared away, so that  a team could pass.  By.C. Abrauamson: He could nob  drive around because ttipvc was a lot of  truck that,had been left there from  the building. An ordinary team could  drive over the road now.  ,"By J. Abrahamson: Peterson could  get on the road again by going a considerable distance around.* I did not  have any logs on the'street near the  shed. . ,,  Samuel Needham, jun., was working  for Peterson last fall. Was in the  wagon with him on the day referred  to. .The road was blocked,"and there  was no room for a team to pass. Theie  was a lotof old lumber with nails sticking out. Peterson told him to take  notice of the Lstull' which blocked the  road.' They went to Coursier's, aiid  witness stayed in the wagon outside.  Was employed to go with Peterson to  get hay.. Did not fetch the hay that  day on account of tho obstruction.  Peterson asked C. .Abrahamson to  move the.lumber, aud be replied that  there was plenty of room for his team  to pass.  By C. Abrahamson; Peterson could  not get Lo his gardens without going  over oiu* lot, which had just been  ploughed.  By the Magistrate: This occurred  in the afternoon. Had been working  for complainant that summer. Cot a  dollar a day. On LhaL afternoon PeLer-  soii gave mo 50e. We went out next  day and got the hay. Should have  noticed Lhe obstruction if my attention  had not been drawn Lo iL.  li. N. Coursier, sworn, said: Mr.  Peterson came Lo me aL Lhe Lime Abrahamson Bros. were, pal,f ing up Lhe  shed, lie Lold nie. the sLreetwas being  obstructed and asked what could be  done. I said as Lhe town was not incorporated and T a, justice of the peace,  1 could not give him any decided answer. We then went down together  and I (old Mr. Abrahnmsou that a  complaint had been laid against'him.  He poinfed Lo <-i road that had been  made around Lhe shed, and from what  I could see. I did not Lb ink there was  any obstruction whatever. They had  taken Lhe trouble to clean out all the  logs.       . .   ..    ,   ;  Cross-examined by complainant:,vl  have driven a toairi. A horse is liable  to'get hurt when driven over old lumber with nails in it. 1 saw some lumber there, but no nails it. There was  a track underneaLh Lhe shed. I saw a  pile of lumber there, but the street was  passable. A man could drive over a  million feet of it if it was properly laid.  liv 0.  Abrahamson:    There   was a  on the roof when Peterson drove'up.  mt-  Complainant  Witness got oil and drew some scant  ling out of th������ way  said, "How's this, you're building on  the I'oad?" , Witness" pointed' to Mr.  Abrahamson and .said, "That's the  man." Some 'words .ensued, and witness heard PeLerson' say, "Fin,,going  on the old road," Lb which C. Abrahamson replied, "You can do as you  like. Peterson, then drove oil"., There  was abouL ten feot of clear road. - ,  This1.was all the. evidence, and the  magistrate ordered Hong. ���������tho-,Ohina-  mau, to remove his shack and'closet  within six months. Abrahamson Bros,  were also ordered to remove the.shed  within thermic period, each party to  pay their own costs. Peterson gave  notice of appeal.      .' *  :' '��������� 0 Unele .Tom's'Cabin.  . ;  This old-time drama v.-as- played loapacl'icS  'house in Uourne's Hah on Tlmi-'day niyht by''  McPhco's company, who are on their way to the  coast. '-The audience was the largest that has  been seen in Kevelstoke, for some years.   While  not what may bo called a first-ola.ss company, il  can be said with truth that thcy���������camo up to expectations.    Uncle Tom   was  very well portrayed; litlle Kva was excellently rendered by  a prolty child ; Topsy was as lively nnd skittish  as any little nigger could'be, and the personation cwus above the .avemgo.    Georgo Harris  spoke too fast;  he did better as St. Clair, but  as Jjegrce he was quite at home ; his acting as  the fiendish slave driver was about tho best in .  the cast.   Marks, the lawyer, was decidedly the  hit ot  the whole   piece, while  JIi������s  Ophelia  might   have   been   greatly improved    upon.  Nearly the whole audience paid their ten cents  and stopped for thcr " concert.".
