The  editor,  compositor   and   devil  combined  was  pounding the space box, while Dr.  Mathison,   scissors  in  hand,   was  carefully scanning the  exchanges,  when  Tom  burst in  on  us.    He  took the middle of the floor, threw  his straw dicer down,   rolled   u-p  his sleeves and thus delivered himself : " What for !    You savoy the  C. P. R.?   Dlamn !"    Now/ Tom  is a Christian, and language of that  kind is not strictly  in .conformity  with tenets of any of the Christian  churches.    After Tom   became coherent this story was pumped out  of him : One of his employees had  suddenly    become    seriously    ill.  None of the Chinese dope or condition  powders   in, the city gave  relief, so Tom sent a hurry-up letter to Vancouver for a pound of  more strenuous dope to be shipped  by express over theC. P.

Glossopof Vernon, This  land is part, of John .McCal I inn's  ranch, and the soil  is of the best  quality  for  fruit-growing,   These  orchards, as well .as being piofit-  able, should be a  very  attractive  feature in that  neighborhood.    In  a few years the land  between, the  Tngrim bridge and Rock Crock'will  .be transformed from a dreary waste  into a garden.   .  Thelngrim bridge on the Kettle  river is in, very bad  shape and is  dangerous to  cross  over with any  but a light load.    This  is causing  serious loss and  inconvenience to  those living along the Kettle river.  . The contractors  who are clearing the  log jams   on   the  Kettle  river have passed  Tngrim  bridge  and are  now about a mile and a  half below that point.    Their principal difiiiculties were on' the West  Fork and main river above West-  terested.  Last year it was announced t"that  this season lots in the new town-  site would be placed on'sale.   Now  it is stated on the be?t of authority  that there can be no sale this year,  for the reason that clearing has not  advanced   far enough.    The  proposed excursions for for would-be  purchasers of townsite lots in  the  north, will  certainly  not  be  held  this season.���������Vancouver dispatch.  ~     News of the nines.

Prince Rupert a Dead One.'  Prince Rupert is at the present  time the deadest village on the Pacific coast. Business has not altogether stopped, but the people who  are living there are putting in  time these days waiting for something to happen. The suicide of  E. G. Russell, the first executive  agent of the Grand Trunk Pacific  in the West; was simply an outward mark of the general confusion of the situation.  Today three hundred people are  living in the village. When the  last steamer left for A'aneouver 50  of these wero clearing land. The  others are assisting in local surveys or looking on.

Maxwell Smith,  Dominion fruit inspector,   discovered   this   morning   that   all  the  strawberry boxes,   which" are supposed  to  contain   four-fifths of an  imperial quart of berries, were a  quarter of an   inch   too shallow,  and   that customers were therefore  not getting the proper quantity of  berries.

Ohonier. returned last week  from the West Fork where he had  been doing assessment work on  the Monte Carlo group.  A. E. Cross of Calgary was in  the city this week. Mr. Cross is  interested in West Copper camp  properties, and ,was hero with a  view to commence development.  There will be a meeting, of the  Prince Henry Mining company in  the city clerk's office this evening,  at which the future policy of the  company as regards development  will be decided on.  H. V. Fuller, while in Spokane,  completed arrangements hv more  vigorous development of. the Elkhorn and Gold Bug mines. -,  . Thirteen men are at present employed in development work by the  B. C. Copper company at the Lone  Star and Washington, just across  the international boundary line  from Central camp. .FrankGome,  an old-time prospector in the district, who visited : the property lately, says it looks as if it  would develop into oue of the big  mines of the'district.

The enforcement of the new rate will reduce the fares all over sections of  the road in Manitoba, Alberta and  Saskatchewan, west as far as the  Rocky mountains. Tn Manitoba,  dn a great many of the lines, the  former rate was practically a 3-  cent rate, so  that on   branches of  H. V. Fuller returned from Spokane Sunday. He expects to resume work on the Bay shortly.  The mine has been closed down  for the past six weeks owing to  surface, water. The ore already  mined will be shipped this month.  Development is steadily progressing on the Strathmore, one of  the   richest  of  Greenwood's  high  grade mines and regular shipments  are being made. A diamond drill  will be started' this month and the  property thoroughly prospected at  A. M. Cleveland of Sherbrooke,  Que., and R. P. Williams of Ross-  land are installing a compressor  plant at the Sunset mine in Dead-  wood camp.

And the bargain with  the natives stands in much the  sams position as it did ten months  ago. - It is just as likely -as not to  continue in the same position for  another year, though the recent-  understanding that was come to  with the provincial government  assists the situation.  Subsidiary companies in   which  friends of the Grand Trunk Pacific  and   the  government   are   stockholders and directors handle every-  ! thing that is worth handling within many miles  of Prince Rupert.  This is truo of the  commercial as  well as the real  estate sido of the  question.    There is a supply com-1  pany for lumber,  another for provisions, and so on, and these control all the  business.

It is  to be hoped that the rumor is without   foundation,  as  more trouble  has resulted from  company  stores  in the west than  from  any  other  cause, and the people of this  district are tired of labor difficulties.  We want a rest.    If the directors  of the B. C.

Midway, it is said, is now the only  town in the district where you can  raise tho lid a little on one side,  A   I'Aut of the  presentment of  the grand jury was rather ambiguous���������that   referring  to  provincial  constables.    Whether  the gentlemen of the grand  jury  wished, an  increase in the salaries of  provincial constables in  order  that better men could be secured  or that  more efficient service  could be got  out of those already in office is not  clearly stated.    Perhaps  they had  in   view   the   almost . miraculous  escapes which prisoners sometimes  make while in the  custody of provincial    ollicers.      Whatever   the  conclusion  the   grand   jury   may  have expected the  public to arrive  at, the recommendation  for an increase  in salary  is   a   good  one,  leaving   out the question  of elli-  ciency altogether.    Provincial ollicers   receive  about  two-thirds  of  the   pay   of  a   laborer.    Ou  this  small���������shall we say���������stipend, they  have to keep up to a certain  social  standard which   necessitates  dress  suit and suit case, clean  shirt and  while  tie,   both   starched,   patent  pumpSjle ggings, riding crop, saddle  bags, cowboy hat, a  profound air,  and other icta not required by the  man  in   overalls.

He is supposed to  run the social scale from a gentleman to a pickpocket for the sum  of $U0 per montt. ��������� .Rather a small  stipend for such versatility.  fered   to   pay  S-J 0,000 instead of  8(10,000,    which   proposition,   tho  baron  alleges, was  rejected on the  ground that it failed to provide for  the allowance to be'made  to certain   newspapers which  would  be  required to represent to the public  that the bargain  was  a good, one  for the province.    Here the negotiations came to a standstill.    The  other side has yet to be heard.    If  the story of the baron  can   be disproved, so much the better for the  government.    Meanwhile,   it  may  be said that the sea  of  politics in  Quebec is very stormy.    This accusation regarding the negotiations  with the Belgian baron  is made by  one of the loading Liberals of Montreal, aided by a. counsel who is also  a prominent; member of the party.  What the Asselin coterie is after is  very plain,     ft is trying to  prove  that the  members  of  the present  government of Quebec are unfit for  their positions for reasons such as  those which the fcestimony'of Haron  L'Epine  suggests.    This  is an interesting    position,     because   the  present government came to otlice  after charges had   been made by it  against   JNIr.   Parent,   the    former  Liberal    Premier.      Mr.    Parent,  who succeeded Mr. Marchand, had  not been in office long when an attack was made  upon  him.    Senator Legris aud Senator Choquette,  important    Quebec    Liberals    alleged that brigandage  was a characteristic of  the  department over '. I  which he presided.    At .this time 11  an   inter-party   campaign  against 11  the continuance of "Mr.   Parent iu i|  office  was  coirimcuccd.    Three of 11  of influence at Quebec. Mr. Gouin  one of the ministers who had resigned from' the Parent cabinet,  became premier, while Mr. Tur-  geon, another anti-Parent Liberal,  became attorney-general.  Now*' comes   the  "brigandage'-'  charge against  some  of the  men  who supplauted  Parent.    It is of  their administration that the Baron  from Belgium tells the story of the  proposed rake-oil'on the land transaction for campaign purposes.    We  have thus, in the  L' ISpine case, a  repetition of the accusations made  in the  Parent case, which'charges  were a repetition of those developed  at an earlier period, when theque-  bec treasury was first  invaded   for  the purposes of  the  Laurier  election fund.

According to his own statement, this Belgian gentleman became interested in land speculations in the Province of Quebec  through meeting with certain of  the provincial ministers at the  Liege exhibition. As a consequence of the interest he developed  he formed a syndicate, with a view  to the purchasing of large areas on  the line of the Gram) Trunk Pacific. When he came to arrange  with the government on the subject of the terms he found that the  price to be paid was ������1 per acre,  70.cents per acre to go to the pub-  lie treasury and -SO cents per aero j  to go to the election fund.  The area that the syndicate first  proposed to buy covered 200,000  acres. This would have given  $00,000 to tho election fund, But  afterwards /K)0,000 acres ' were  spoken of, and if such a sale were  made the election fund would  naturally get ������150,000.

MARSHALL, Prop,  The Canadian ohib of Winnipeg  lias directed tlie attention of theatre managers to the tendency to  magnify and exalt the Stars and  Stripes on the, Canadian Btage, and  to relegate tho Union .'Jack to the  rear. By the club the request is  made that this country be treated  in its amusements anil it wore not  a part of tho republic. The.ro can  bo-no doubt that our friends in the  West have hit upon a point in  reference to which care ought to  bo taken. We are a British people, and our, stage should bo  managed with a due understanding to that fact.  But, of course, the incongruous  inust be avoided.- There are many  plays the plot of which is laid in  the United States, and it would be  absurd to give-them a different  coloring upon crossing tho border.  There are other plays in which the-  soldiery of the United States  figures, and it would not do to  send the boy's in blue up and dow.n  the stage to the tune of "Rule  Britannia," with the Union Jack  at the head of the army. One of  the Winnipeg theatrical directors  says that an effort was once made  to localize a strictly United States  play by introducing the Union  Jack into a court-martial scene in  which United Slates oflicers were  trying one of their comrades. But  the courtesy which impelled the  company from across the line thus  to honor.tho (lag of Canada,'was  not appreciated at all. It would  be about as sensible to display the  Stars and Stripes- in " Richard  IU" as a compliment to our neighbors. The fact is that plays call  for the ilag of the country in which  the plot is laid. Tho British playwrights introduce the British flag  freely, and this feature of tho production is duly honored when the  play is produced in tho United  States. Similarly the United States  playwright introduces the flag of  his country, and that emblem is  received with every mark of respect both here and in Britain.  Still, there is a tendcnc}' in some  performances to forget that this is  not the United States, aud managers would do well.to see to it that  this error is avoided.        /  On the whole, the flag or each  country is respected by the people  of the other country. This situation ought to continue, and it is  bound to do so, if the sent&ients  'of both sides of the line are duly  regarded. We in Canada have a  kindly feeling for the national emblems of other countries, yet we  stand strongly by the principle:  "Our Own Flag First."���������Mail and  Empire.  To Cure Blushing1.  A great many men blush, said a  physician ; some so painfully that  they come, to mo to get cured.  The cure I recommend is an odd  one. It is the abandonment of  overhcavy clothing, especially of  woollen socks. Amazing it is how  many male blushers have a predilection for thick socks of wool.  But some blushers wear light  enough clothes.. To them I cau  only recommend a nerve treatment. I advise them to make  speeches at banquets, to bo witnesses in murder trials, to go to  teas and dances, to develop, in  short, the nerve as a wrestler develops his muscle.  Blushing is a- difficult disorder  to cuiv. As a rule it passes away  itself when tho victim roaches his  .'inth yean���������Now Orleans Times-  Democrat.

Au Inland Empire.  .The country between the international boundary and. Golden, on  both sides of the Kootenay river,  has been exploited, and it is positively known that mining will be  the important factor in the future  upbuilding of Southeast Kootenay, though lumbering, agriculture and grazing will all prove to  be prominent wealth-producing features of the district. The mines  in the main range of the Kooky  Mountains will be 'developed and  put on a paying basis as soon as  the necessary transportation for  machinery and ores is supplied by  the construction of the Kootenay  Central railway.  In the l'urccll range, as well as  the main range of the Rockies,  there are partially developed  mines which- will soon become  shippers, if transportation was at  baud, and this fact is borne out  by the large quantities of ore on  the dumps. In the Windermere  district mines are already shipping  and many small prospects all along  the proposed route of the K. C. R.  would'' become constant shippers,  all tending to make the proposed  railway -a paying investment as  each successive mile is constructed.  - There are many other inducements for a railway to build in the  Kootenay valley aside from those  already mentioned. The magnificent water power found on all  the rivers and Streams in the district would furnish power for  manufacturing purposes. The  country is easy of access, the road,  as surveyed, of less than one per  cent grade would be of easy construction, and would pass through  a productive country for its entire  distance.���������Cranbrook    Prospector.
