Duncan Mcintosh returned on  Sunday from Palmer mountain,  well satisfied with what ho saw of  the big tunnel and mill at that  point. Tho tunnel is in about  5,000 feet, but owing to the air  being bad he did not explore it  mora than half that distance.  menced, biit ono never could foretell what was going to happen a  I'ew months hence in railway extension. Much depended upon the  money market. The party left on  todays east-bound train.  Hockey Fizzle.  The Greenwood seuior hockey  team went up to Phoenix Monday  night and quit the ice before the  game was finished, owing, it is alleged, to tlie unfair decisions of  the referee.  rt is stated by local players that  the reftree had money on the  game. This is hardly possible.  Even il'he had'offered" to bet on  the result and afterwards accepted  the position of referee, ho would  ho considered as much of an outlaw among straight athletes as the  saiulbnggcr would be among the  the respectable business element of  {���������.community. The chief requisite  for a referee in any sporting event  is a nuiii who is impartial, cool,  firm, and whoso integrity is beyond question. Hockey is a  straight game in the East, simply  because a crooked referee or umpire is promptly kicked oft' the ice.  If straight hockey cannot be played  here the game should be dropped.  It would be unfortunate if an unfriendly feeling were created between the people of thetwotowus because a few hoodlums wish to turn  a sporting event into a tinhorn  gambling game. A few days ago,  after a game between the juniors  of the two towns, the writer asked  a couple of (he boys how the game  came out. The answer was .-"Oh  they beat us <i to. 3, but they  cheated." Nice association for  boys teu or twelve years of age.  Semi-professionalism has been  the curse of hockey in the west,  and any team which numbers  among its players professional  loafers must expect to be looked  upon with suspicion.  Curling rinks go to Phoenix and  Phoenix rinks conn* here to play.  The member of the Greenwood  Curling club who would hint that  a rink from Phoenix would cheat,  would probably be asked to resign.  There is no reason why hockey  could not be conducted in the  same way. There are a number-  of old hockey players in the district who would willingly act as  referees in' 'order to elevate "tlie  gome. Any" honest man, whether  he knows'the game or not, could  stand at the flags.  Western Float  AMONG THE CURLERS.  Editor Coyle will start a newspaper at Hazelton this spring.  Lady Sholro Douglas is living  on a ranch at Creston.    ,  Zinc mining in tho Slocan  will  be active next summer.  J. R. Cameron, the genial mayor  of Sandon, lives in Kaslo.   .

The curling event of the season  was tho match Saturday night between   representatives   from   Ontario and the Maritime provinces,  locally known as Musheaters and  Fisheaters.      This   is   an   annual-  event   in   Greenwood.' ;  Eighteen  ends are"played, and the onlookers  have unlimited license to criticize  all  and  praise'none.    As an instance of tho form of criticism the  first player who appeared  at the  rjnlc was asked if he was going to  attempt to curl.    He guessed "so.  Then he was informed that curling  wa** slightly different from  skip-  tH0 I ping flat stones on  Georgian   Biy  or playing duck on the rock.   Anyway ho shouldn't attempt to  play  among   curlers.      As   the   others  came   in   they got similar doses.  The criticism  continued   throughout the game.    Tlie more sensitive  players fell down badly.    The lady  spectators left early in   the game.  One    side    of   the   score    board  was decorated with herrings and  the other with small sacks of oat- .  meal.

Fisk. a bad man  from Montana, aud a fugitive from  American justice. ft. was not  Fisk's desire that he should take  the trip. He went at tho instance  of Immigration Agent Dunlop, who  accompanied him to the boundary  line.  Mr. Fisk was not enamoured of  the genial immigrant agent's company, nor did he approve of the  activity of the immigration department. Otherwise he would  scarcely have taken the course he  did.  As tho train, running at twenty  miles an hour, was. rounding a  curve near Elko he stretched himself forward in a yawn of inefliblo  ennui that completely deceived.  The next moment he had shot out  the car door and plunged from  the moving train into the show.  Giving a signal fer the train to  stop, Mr. Dunlop entered into the  spirit of the game and took to the  snow himself.  Fisk was partially stunned by his  fall and had made little progress  from tho spot where he left his  mark in tho snow. He refused to  get on the train again unless taken  by force. Ho got on and ho wore  jewelry the rest of the trip.  At Gateway Hliei-ill' Parrow  gathered him in and ho will await  the judgment of tho United States  court for theft. ���������Fernie Free Press.

TlTeia it long grecn-hldo quirt in my
hand, and as 1 spoke I advanced upon
him, making it whistle ia the nil'. Uiu
snrprlsud as he was at ruy audacity
he was sufficiently quick to frustrate
my intention. Rushing in at me he ai-
tomptod to seize the hand that held
tho whip, but he did not affect his
purpose until I has*, given him a smart,
cut with it across tho face, Then, see-
lag that he meant fighting, for I will
do him thc Justice to say that ho was
no coward, I threw tlie thorn; awa>-
and gave him battle with my fists. He
was not thc sort of foe to be taken
lightly. The man had a peculiar knack
of his own, and, what, was more, he
was as hard as whalebone and almost
as pliable. However he had not the advantage of the training I had had, nor
was he as powerful a man. I let. him
have It straight from the shoulder as
often and as hard as he would take it.
and three times he measured his full
length in thc dust. Each time he came
up with a fresh mark upon his face,
nnd I can tell you tho sight did me
good. My blood was thoroughly afire
by this time, and the only thing that
could cool it was the touch of his
face against my fist. At last I caught
him on the point of the Jaw and ho
went down all of a heap and lay like
a log. Just as he had fallen, breathing
heavily, The overseer went across to
him, and kneeling by his side, lifted
his head.
"I believe you've killed him," said
he, turning to ,me with an evil look
upon his face.
"Don't you believe it," I answered. "It
would have saved the hangman a Job
If I had, for, you take my word for it, |
he'll live to be hung yet."
I was right in my first assertion, for
In a few moments the manager opened his eyes and looked about him in a
dazed fashion. Seeing this I went off
to the stock yard and saddled my
. horses, then, with a last look at the
" station and my late antagonist, who at
that moment was being escorted by
the overseer to his own residence. I
climbed into my saddle, and, taking
the leading rein of the pack horee
from the black boy's hand, set off
over the sand hills In the direction
taken by the cart containing poor
Bon.
Reaching the Mail Change���a miserable iron building of four rooms,
standing in the centre of a stretch of
the dreariest plain a man could well
Imagine���I interviewed the proprietor
and engaged a room In which to nurse
my sick friend back to life. Having
done this I put Ben to bed and endeavoured fo discover what on earth
was the matter with him. At that moment I verily believe I -would have
given anything I possessed, or should j
have been likely to possess, for five
minutes' conversation with a doctor, j
I had never seen a case of the kind !
before, and was hopelessly fogged as
to what course I should pursue in
treating.it. To my thinking it looked
like typhoid, and having heard that in
such cases milk should be the only
diet I bespoke a goat from the landlord's herd and relegated her to Ben's
exclusive use.
My chief prayer for the next month
was that it might never be necessary
for me to pass through such an awful
time again. For three weeks I fought
with thc disease night and day, one
moment cheered by a gleam of hope,
the next despairing entirely of success. All the time I was quite aware
that I was being spied upon, and that
all my saying and doings were reported to the manager by my landlord
-when he took over the weekly mail
bag. But as I had no desire to hide
anything, and nothing, save Ben's
progress, to tell, this gave me but the
smallest conre'rn. Being no longer in
his employ, Bartrand could do me no
further mischief, and so long as I paid,
the extortionate charge demanded by
the proprietor of the shanty for board
and residence. I,knew.he would have
no fault to find with my presence
there.
Somewhere or another I remember-
ed to hnve rrprl that, in the malady
from which I believed my old friend
���was suffer-in** on or about the twenty-
first day tho r-'<-1s Is reached,- and
afterwards a change should be observable. My susniclons proved correct,
for on that v/u-y day Ben became conscious, and af'<"\ that his condition
began perceptibl v. to imnrove. For
nearly a week, though- still as feeble
as a month-old child, he rr.onded rapidly. Then, for so���o mysterious reason
he suffered a re'r-nse. lost ground as.
fast as he had -rained it. and on the
twelfth day. .conntins: from the one
mentioned above. I saw that his case
���was hopeless, and renHzetl that all my
endeavors had br"ti in vain.
How well I remember that miserable
afternoon! It hn'l been Fcorcbmslyhot
ever since Biinrip��. and the little room
in which T watered beside the sick
man's hod wps '":e a furnace. From
my window T could see the stretch of
sunbaked plain rising and falling
awav fnwa-''*-- ���l"* kn-i-on In endless
monotony. In th" r*dln'rilnf: bar I could
hear the voices <���* tre landlord and
three bushnon w'-o, acco-rling to custom, had m���r, over tn drink themselves Into d'-"i-l'i-*' "*i ��'���"!!��� hard-camcd
savings, and vm "a-l'Itntfn? tho business with r!I i'c��-r'!*'�� <i'-��!n!'f'*h. On
the bod poor Ben MiniMcd and tossed
talking wildly to himself and repeating over and over again the same
words I had heard him utter that afternoon at ��� M.arkapurlle���"live hundred
paces north-west from the creek, and
Just in a line with the blasted gum."
What he meant by It was more than
I <*ould tell, but I was soon to discover,
and that discovery was destined to
bring me as near the pit of damnation
as It 1b posslblo for a man to get without actually falling into it.
A little bo-fo-e sundown I left the
bedroom and went out Into tho verandah.. The heat and. the closeness of
the sick room had not had a^good effect upon me, and I felt wretchedly
sick and ill. I sat down on a bench
and took in tho hopeless view. A quarter of a ml In away across the plain a
couple of wild turkeys wore feeding,
at the same time kocping a sharp
lco'cout about them, and en tho very
edge of the north-eastern horizon a
small cloud of dust proclaimed the
coming of tho malt coach, which I
know had been expected since sunrise that morning. I watched It as it
loomed larger and larger, and did not
return to my patient until the clumsy,
lumbering concern, drawn by live
spxthiz uorsc3. had milled .up before
f .ihe Hostelry. IT. was me' driver's custom to pass' the night at the Change,
and to go on again at daylight the following morning.
When T had seen the horses unharnessed and had spoken to the driver,
who was an old friend, I made my way
buck lo Ben's room. To my delight I
found him conscious once more. I sat
down beside the bed and told him how
s;lad I was to see that his senses had
returned to him.      <
"Ay, old lad," he' answered feebly,
"1 know ye. But I shan't do so for long.
I'm done for now. and I know It. This
time to-morrow old Ben will know for
hlsself what truth there is in the yarns
the skv-nilots spin us about heaven
and hell."
"Don't you believe It, Ben," I answered, feeling that although I agreed
with him It was my duty to endeavour
to cheer him up. "You're worth a good
many dead men yet. You're not going
out this trip by a great deal. We shall
have you packing your swag for a nW
rush before you can look round. I'll
be helping sink a good shaft inside a
month."
"Never again," he answered: "the
only shaft I shall ever have anything
to do with now will be six by two,
and when I'm once down in it I'll never
see daylight again."
"Well you're not going to talk any
more now. Try and have a nap if you
can. Sleep's -what you want to bring
your strength back."
"I. shall have enough and to spare
of that directly," he answered.  "No,
lad, I want to talk to you.    I've   got
something on  my  mind   that 1  must
say while I've the strength to do It."
But I wouldn't hoar him.
"If you don't try to get to sleep," I
said, "I shall clear out and leave you.
I'll hear what you've got to say late:-
on. There will be plenty of time for
that by and bye."
"As you please," he replied resignedly. "It's for you to choose. If you'd
only listen, 1 could tell you what will
make you the richest man on earth.
If I die without telling you. you'll only
have yourself to thank for ii. Now do
you .want me to go to sleep?"
"Yes, I do!" I said, thinking the
poor fellow was growing delirious
again. "I want you to try more than
ever. When you wake up again I'll
promise to listen as long as you like."
He did uot argue the point any further, but laid his head down on his
pillow again, and In a few moments
was dozing quietly.'
When he woke again the lamu on
the ricketty deal table near the bed
had been lit some time. I had been
reading a Sydney paper which I had
picked up in the bar, and was quite
unprepared for. the choking cry with
-whiclr. he attracted my attention.
Throwing down the paper I went
across to the bed and asked him how
he felt.
"Mortal bad,"..was his answer. "It
won't be long; now'afore I'm gone.
Laddie, I must say what I've got. to
say quickly, and you must listen with
all your,ears."
'-I'll listen, never fear," I replied:
hoping; that my acquiescence might
soothe him. "What is it vou have upon
your mind? You know I'll do anything
I can to help you."
"I know that, laddie. You've been a
good friend to rnn, an' now, please
God, I'm go'"riff to rlo a good stroke for
you. Help me to sit up a bit."
I lifted him up by placing my arm
under his shoulders, and, when I had
propped the pillc ��s behind him, tool;
my seat again.
"You remember the time I left yon
to go and try my luck A\   that   new
field down South, don't you?"
I nodded.
"Well, I went down there and worked like a galley slave for three months,
only to come off the field a poorer
man than I went on to it. It was never
any good, and (he .wh-~!e rush was a
���fraud.-Having fouiid this out I set off
by myself from Kalaman- Township
Into the West, thinking I would pros

another place. I .caving the Darling

Range;''.'always i" y.ng had a sort o"
notion tr-at there was gold In that
part of the country if only folk could
get at'it."
'He psn'.ed, an���'. for a few momentr
T thought he would be unable to finish
his story, f.arse '-eads of persniration
stood upon'Ms fo-ehead. and he gasped for breath, as a fish does when
first la'vcn f"->n -he water. Then he
pulled himself t*y.'Cther an*' continued:
"Well, for three- months I lived
amonir thos" lonely bills. Tor all the
world like a M-"-k fellow, never seeing
a soul for the -whole of that time. You
must l-fmembor that for what's to
come. Gully after gully, and hill after
hill J^tricd, but all in vain. In some
places there were prospects, but when
I worked at them they never came to
anything. But one day, Just as I was
thinking of turning back. Just bv
chance I struck the rfght spot. Wh'n
I sampled it I could hardly believe it*'-
eyes. I tell j*ou'this,'laddie," here Ms
voice sunk to a wh'sp"-- as he said Impressively, "there's gold enough there
to set us both up as millionaires ii
dozen times over."
I looked at him in amazement. Was
this delirium? or had he really found
what he bad averred? I was going to
question him. bnt ho held up bis hand
to me to be silent.
wmit -wTianira ysu want -wi-cir ivre-r-
I asked, surprised that he should havo
Ui-:cn so mueJi trouble   to    find    me
when Fortune was staring him in the
face.
'���[ wanted you to stand in wlih me,
lad.  I wanted a little capital to si an
work on, and I reckoned as you'd been
so long in one place, you'd probably
, have saved a bit. Now It's all done
I for as far as I'm concerned. It seems
' a bit rough, don't It, that after hunt-
1 ing for tho right spot all my life long,
! I should have found It Just when it's
no use to me? Howsoever, It's there
for you, laddie, and I don't know but
what you'll make better use of it than
I should have dono. Now listen here."
He drew me still closer to him and
whispered in my ear���
"As soon as I'm gone mako tracks
for the Boolga Range, Don't, waste a
minute. You ought to do it in threo
weeks, traveling across country with
good horses.' Find the head   of    tho

reach the point where it branches off
to the east and leaves the hills. There
are three big rocks at the bend, and
half a mile or so due south from them
there's a big dead gum,    struck,   by
lightning, maybe. Step  five   hundred
paces from the rocks up tho hillside
fair north-west, and that should bring
you level with tho blasted gum. Here's
a bit of paper with it all planned oat
so that you can't mako a mistake."
He pulled out half a sheet of greasy
note-paper from his bosom and gave
it to me.

Ho laid his hc.-vi back, exhausted
vilh so much talking, and closed his
M-es. Nearly hal'-an-hour went by b~
'.to ho spoke again. Then ho said
wearily,���
"Laddie, I won't be sorry when It's
nil over. But still T can't help ihihk'ivj
( would like to have seen that mine."
He died almost on the stroke of
.nidnight, and we buried him next
lay on the little sandhill at the back
of the grog shanty: That I was much
affected by the poor old man's decease it would bo idle to deny, oven
if I desired to do so. The old fellow
had been a good mate to me, and, as
far as I knew, 1 was the only friend
ho had in the world. In leaving me his
secret, I inherited all he died possessed of. But if that turned out as ha
had led me to expect it would do, I
should, indeed, be a made man. In
order, however, to prevent a disappointment that would be too crushing,
I determined to place no faith in it.
My tuck had hitherto been so bad
that it seemed impossible it could
ever change. To tell the truth, I wa3
feeling far too ill by this time to think
much about anything outside myself.
During the last few days my appetite
had completely vanished, my head
ached almost to distraction, and my
condition generally betokened the approach of a high fever. -
Ae we left the grave and prepared
to return to the house, I reeled. Gibbs,
the landlord, put his arm round me to
steadv me.
"Come, hold up," he said, not unkindly. "Bite on ihe bullet, my lad.
We shall have to doctor you next if
this is the way you are going en."
I felt -too ill to reply, so I held my
tongue and concentrated all my energies on the difficult task of walking
home. When I reached the house I was
nut to bed, and Gibbs and his slatternly wife took.it in turns to wait upon
me. That night I lost consciousness,
and remember nothing further of what
happened until I came to my senses,
in the same room and bed -which had
been occupied by Ben, some threo
weeks later. I was so weak then that
1 felt"mora of a desire to die and be
done with it, than to continue the fight
for existence. But my constitution
was an extraordinary one, I suppose,
for little by little I regained my
strength, until, at the end of six weeks,
I was' able to leave my bed and hobble
into the verandah. All this time th��
story of Bon's mine bad been simmering in my brain. .The chart he had
'liven me lay where. I had placed it before I was taken.ill, namely. In my
shirt pocket, and one morning I took
It out and stud'ed it carefully. What
was it, worth? Millions or nothing?

Says   Home-Made   Mixture   Is   Easily
Prepared, and Cures Weak Kidneys and  bladder
Here is a simple home-made mixture as given by an eminent authority on kidney diseases, who makes
thc statement iu a Montreal daily
newspaper, that it will relieve almost
any ca.se of Kidney trouble if taken
before the stage of Uright's d'sease.
He states that such symptoms as
lame back, pain in the side, frequent
desire to urinate, especially at night;
painful and discolored urination, are
readily overcome. Here is the recipe; try it:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kurgort, one ounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
ounces . Take , a teaspoonful after
each meal and at bedtime.
A well-known druggist is authority
that these ingredients are all harmless and easily mixed at home by
shaking well in a bottle. This mixture has a peculiar healing arid
soothing effect upon the entire Kidney and Urinary structure, and often
overcomes the worst forms of Rheumatism in just a little while. This
mixture i.s said to remove all blood
disorders and cure the Rheumatism
by forcing the Kidneys to filter and
strain from the blood and system all
uric acid and foul, decomposed waste
matter, which cause these afflictions.
Try it if you aren't well. Save tho
prescription.

"That is very commendable. Now, I
want a stump, and I want lo use your
pen and ink aud also your blotter, and
I'd like to look at your directory."
Tho clerk busied himself iu passing
over the above articles, and then she
said in her sweetest tones:
"Would you mind taking up this bin
blot?   I'm nervous."
"Yes,-miss, I"���
"And attaching the stamp? I don'l

PAINS AND ACHES
OF  THE AGED
Largely Due to Derangements of the Liver,
and Bowels, Which Are Overcome By
You do not feel so young as you
used to. The joints are a bit stiff.
And you have dull heavy pains in
the back and limbs, with attacks of
rheumatism,  it  may  be.
It is possible you have found out.
tlint the cause of trouble rests with
tin; sluggish ac.tion of the kidneys,
liver and bowels, but if you have not
used Dr, Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills,
you have not' tested the most effective''
treatment for these conditions.   ' ^   -
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills are
a comfort to the aged, largely because
of their unique combined action on
the whole excretory system.
Constipation and biliousness can no
longer exist when the, liver is enliv-
jnecl to action by the use of this great
medicine.
Kidney derangements and backache
likewise disappear when the kidneys
are invigorated and an occasional dose
of these pills ensures the elimination
of uric acid from the system.
Almost daily we hoar of aged people whose pains and aches have baen
overcome and whose life' has been
made more comfortable and more liap-
py by the use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-
! Liver Pills.
'.Mr. Jdmes J.,'Jensen, Olds, Alia.,
writes: "1 have .been troubled considerably with lame- back, which I
suppose came froni derangements of
the kidneys/ and I have nevei: been
able to find 'a treatment that was so
prompt and effective in curing this
ailment as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills. At two different times- in my ���
life this preparation- has entirely cured me of this trouble, nnd of late
years I hnve found it unnecessary to
use any medicine whatever. 1 feel
it my duty to add this statement to
the 'inany others which" I see in recommendation of this excellent medicine." , ' -
In every family there is need of
just such "a. medicine ns Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills, to cure constipation-, 'backache; biliousness, indigestion and prevent'dangerous and fatal

A Doctor's Wonderful Discovery.
What gives promise of being one of
the most beneficial discoveries In the
history of the world was modestly
suggested by Dr. Albert Calmette, dl
rector of the Pasteur Institute at Lille
Franco, in the course of an address he-
fore the international conference on
tuberculosis in Vienna.. He reported
that' he had been able to render all
the animals"used for experiment at the
institute���cattle, sheep and guinea pigs
���Immune against the most formidable
doses of tuberculosis virus���that Is to
say, the immunization has been com
plete for the eleven months' during
which they have been under obsefva
tion. If it be proved that It is permanent or that it lasts even for a period
of only a few years and that a. similar
treatment may be applied to human
beings the Importance of -this little
heralded discovery can hardly be overestimated.���Leslie's Weekly.

Why Bankers Don't Like Them and  Prefer to Handle Paper.  "Of the different kinds of American  money uow In circulation the gold  coins of all denominations are the most  disliked in my business," said a prominent New York banker.  "Take a greenback, a silver or a gold  certificate or a national bank note to  your bank and it is received and placed to your credit without a moment's  delay.   Not so with gold.   A few days  ago a gentleman brought to our bank  upward of $3,000 in gold of different  'denominations and was much provoked  because we would not receive it and  jive him credit with the amount the  face of the coin represented.   This we  could not do because the law requires  that gold shall be redeemed only at its  actual   value.    CeMns   carried  in   the  pocket for any length of time naturally  lose something by abrasion���������probably  but a fractional part of a cent on a ten  dollar piece, but it is a loss nevertheless���������and therefore bankers cannot give  credit for gold deposits until the coin  Bhall have been weighed.   In the case  mentioned my friend took his gold to  the subtreasury and was compelled to  wait there nearly an hour before he  could get notes for it  "Every coin had to be passed through  the scales, and after .the weighing process; had. been -completed .three of the  coins���������two five dollar pieces and a ten  dolar piece���������were returned to him as  short in weight.   Before returning short  weight coins the department stamps on  the face of each coin a cross.    The  owner is either left to send the coins to  the United States mint for redemption  or again   put  them   Into  circulation.  Eventually the coins with crosses on  their faces will go to the mint and be  redeemed  at  their  actual   value.    In  many instances there may not be more  than  several   cents'   shortage  on   ?D0  worth of coins.

Japanese Matting and Linoleumns.  Phono 10.  A. L. WHITE,  Furniture Man.  If it were not proven, by the.  oilk-ial documents, aud by the testimony of one of the officers of the  department of tho interior., it would  be impossible- to believe that the  latest scandal���������that having reference to the distribution of the coal  lands of the West���������had any foundation, in fact. But the evidence  has come out, and there is ' no denying the truth. Coal measures  are to be found throughout the  province ot Alberta. These deposits afford the settler and the  rancher the fuel which otherwise  would be wanting. It has been  the policy of former administrations to encourage the mining of  coal by tho awarding of small  areas to actual operators. This  government has followed a different course. It gives the mines  to favorites, and in, areas that are  sufficiently extensive 'to create  monopolies in the districts to be.  served.       . - -     ;  The method of distribution .has  been exemplified in the' Caldwell  case, just ventilated before the  public accounts ' committee. Mr.  Caldwell was entitled, under the  law, to receive just one coal grant  of 320 acres, and no more. But  the government was ready in his  interests to violate its own law,  and to give him a  coal territory of  very considerable extent. In order  that Mr. Caldwell might secure the  mines in contemplation an interesting manoeuvre was adopted.  Applications-foi allotments were  accepted in thc names of somei-'SG  dill'ei'cnii parlies. "The parties  whose names were .used were the  bell-boys or chambermaids of Ottawa. As each hell-boy or chambermaid signed for a coal mine, he or  she signed also an iissignmeiit'to  Mr. Caldwell. Thus tho grant of  mines lo the k-ll-hoys'and chain-  b'-rmaids was really ������ grant to Mr.  Caldwell, in direct antagonism to  the statue wliich limits tlie quantity of coal any one individual may  have. The publicity given to tlie  .scheme when ib was going through  seems to have made it difficult for  the government to carry it out in  its entirety. But Mr. Caldwell  secured a good slice of mineral  land. What he got was a block.of  l2,!)20 acres, for which he paid the  country the munificent sum of $50.  The ingenuity with which thi*  machinery for tho evasion of ,the  law was designed is characteristic  of the Oliver regime. It is a  repetition of th** manoeuvring that  brought thc timber berths into the  hands of politicians for relatively  nothing. Such skill could- not  have.been exercised by a person  without influence, or by a person  who does not represent somebody  high up in the ruling dynasty.  That Mr. Caldwell acted not for  himself, but for the politicians  whose names it lias been deemed  prudent to conceal, is more than  probable. In a word, the-great  coal raid effected in the names of  the chambermaids and bell-boys of  Ottawa was made for some political magnate who is hidden from  view. What the name of this  grafter is parliament will no doubt  endeavor to discover.���������Mail and  Empire.        _.
