The train'   from  Grand Forks, Phoenix and Greenwood carried about two thousand  people, although the, C.-.P.

Smith Curtis was there, ,-j There  were parsons and- horsemen, and  tinhorns, and book men and booze  fighters without end," altogether  about 5,000 people. ���������   '  '.The sporting events commenced  with the mountain climbing contest, which .was easily won by Jas.

John Houston is setting ads iu  Qoldfields and saving a stake with  which to start a real estate office.  The city has been full of visitors  from Fernio recently. Their visit  had no connection with the recent  holdups.  Holdup crooks have been numerous in tho city lately, and many  of tho citizens aro .afruid to cany  anything around after dark.

After the" Nelson   Tribune   fell  into the journalistic cemetery last  November its remains were seized  for rent and wages   and   sold   by  auction to a bunch of Coast conservatives represented by W.  W.  Baer, a well-known Methodist par-  sou.    For the past six   months the  parson has been telling the public  that the new paper would start up  in a few days, until the public "became weary waiting and began to  look   upon Baer as if.he was   the  joshcr of the day.    However, mo:t  of things come to those who wait,  and upon June 4th the Canadian  is slated to appear in Nelson as an  afternoon   daily.      Practically it  will be conservative from the top  line to the last quad, and later on  another machine may be added to  tli3 plant with the view of  coming-  out in the .morning.     David M.  Carley will be the manager,  and  W. W. Baer- will sit iu the editorial chair.    The Economist will  cease publication in a few  weeks,  and that office will be run by Sam  Carley as a job office.     Although  the new daily will lose money for  a time it will not be Dave Carley's  fault if   it   does   not eventually  prove a winner.    He is one of the  most   successful and   experienced  newspaper men in B. C.    Tho editor, W. W.' Baer is said to  bo one  of the most brilliant writers in the  provi'uee, and having escaped, from  the pulpit.he now has the grand  opportunity   to   show   the world  what kind of thought permeates  his upper stope.

' Mr.   Dale' was the first to  make a location in what is-now  known" as Carmi camp,    no located the Carmi and Butcher Boy in  the fall of   1S9G,   and   has   since  made his home ou the West Fork,  having 'platted   the   townsito   of  Carmi, one of   the   prettiest' loca-'  tions in the district and right in  the centre of the camp of-the same  name,    New   machinery- is being  added to the ;plant' of ��������� the Carmi  mine;      which     was    previously  equipped   with -a" GO horsepower  boiler,  a "Jeukes hoist,  5 gravity  stamps, a Cameron and a Duplex  sinking pump and- a machine drill.  The new machinery being installed  will consist of a five-stamp battery  of 1260 pounds-each; a carload  of  appliances' for   cyanide   plant,   a  ccntifugal pump,  overstone ta'jle  and five.amalgainating plates,  and  a Tremain battery of two stamps.  A   large amount of development  has been done on the Carmi, which  is owned by an English syndicate,-  the representative of which is -E.  H.  Thruston.      In   No.   1* shaft  about a hundred feet of sinking  and drifting has been done, a tunnel 85 feet has been run.    'No.  2  shaft is down Go feet,  and No.   3,  188" feet.    At the 100 level. of No.  3, drifts have been   run   west  SO  feet, and east117 feet, and at 1G0  level  drifting  100 feet.     Stoping  has been done from the surface to  the GO foot level for about 50 feet  east of the shaft.    Several shipments were made from -the Carmi  and  ore" run 'through' the stamps  at the mine.    When the; "new machinery is in place it is expected  that the plant will save about 90  per   cent   of values.    Tests made  have run from So to 92 per.cent of  values.  At the Sally on Wallace mountain four men are at work improving the wagon road and doing outside work.  On the Bounty, Fraction aud  Duncan owned by C. H. Fair and  others, five men arc at work. The  paystreak in the Duncan is about  20 incheswide with a ledge about  3-i- feet between walls. About ten  tons of ore have been mined ready  for shipment.. On "'the Bounty  Fraction between four and six cars  of ore have been blocked out ready  for stoping. W. H. H. Ram bo is  making a wagou road from the  Rambler down Dry- Creek to government wagon road. Just before  leaving Mr. Dale heard that the  crosscut from the 100 ft. level on  Washington and Idaho had run  into ledge, but this was not verified. However, tho crooscut was  in a schist, the day previous, which  was supposed to be the wall. O.

Of course the agreement is  not all  that   either  party   could  wish, but in labor difficulties 'there  are many minor issuc3 ' that "have  to be considered in arriving at a:  conclusion.    Although there were  grievances that have not been ��������� satisfactory settled,' the" present ar:  rangement will tend..to create  a ,  stability, in labor as well as in busi-'.  ness circles.   -And before the period  for which  the " agreement " is  made expires, both parties will be-  con\e'better acquainted and it is to  bo hoped a  more friendly feeling ���������  will result. *  A deal is .being"putrthrough'by-.

Through  the ignorance of a justice or justices of the peace an  accused person  is compelled to combat all the resources of  the attorney-general's  department.    This, to a poor man,  is no easy task, and if it were not  that some of the legal gentlemen,  through friendship or faith in the  integrity; of the accused, accept a  very lean   retainer,  it   would be  an impossibility.    Take tho case of  the Crown  vs.   Andrews tried at  the assizes held   here   last   week.  Andrews as a poor man.    He is a  prospector and works as  a   camp  cook   to   grubstake himself.      He  was accused of   obtaining   money  under false pretenses from  tho V.  V. & E.    He was arrested,  tried  and committed by two justices of  the peace.     To conduct the preliminary defense he was compolled  to sacrifice a half interest   in   a  promising mineral claim, near the  Mother Lode mine for 850.     He  had to retain counsel and defend  his liberty against all the resources  of the attorney general's department.   Iu his charge to the jury  the judge said  there was no evidence adduced on which a verdict  of guilty could be brought in.     It  will take Andrews at least a year  of hard work to pay his counsel  and other expenses in connection  with defense of his liberty, - on a  charge which the trial judge practically termed ridiculous.

"  the estimate by 88,000,000, the  Winnipeg to Quebec section alone  will involve-the country in an expenditure of $30,000,000 more  than parliament contemplated  when it ratified the contract.  It is safe to say, however, that  this is an optimistic view of the  situation. The contracts which  have been let at the above figures  are simply for the construction of  tho road. They do not include  stations, freight sheds, roundhouses, switches, or the dozen and  one other items to be provided for  when the road itself is built.  Neither do they include the heavy  expenditure that will, include cost  of surveys, or the salaries of the  commissioners and their staff; and  it is only reasonable to suppose  that the cost of construction of the  gap between tho two sections now  under contract will largely exceed  the contract price of these initial  stretches, for work upon'it will be  carried on at a greater distance  from the base" of supplies, and  through a much rougher and more  inaccessable country.  Is it not a shameful thing that  the finance minister, in order to  carry this iniquitous deal through  parliament, should have so blinded  tho representatives of. the people  to the crushing nature of the load  that was by it being forced upon  the country ?  Tho portion of the contract calling for government construction  and company operation of the eastern section was bad enough in all  conscience, even at tho deceptive  figures of Mr. Fielding, but with  the revelations afforded by the  contracts just let, it is quite plain  that Canada has in this deal been  most shockingiy imposed upon,  and that, too, by the men who are  the paid custodians of ' the country's interests.���������Calgary Herald.

COST OF  The Dominion of Canada is  bound by the terms of its contract  with the Grand Trunk Pacific company to build the line east from  Winnipeg to Monctou���������and then  hand it over to the company for  operation When the contract was  under discussion in parliament,  the finance minister, Mr. Fielding  estimated tho cost of building the  lino between Quebec and Winnipeg at $28,000 per mile.  The contract for 245 miles east  from Winnipeg has just been let  by the government for $13,300,000  or at the rate of $51,000 per mile.  The contract for 150 miles, west  from Quebec has been let for $5,-  750,000 or at tho rate of $38,333  per mile.  The cost of these two stretches  is, therefore, $19,050,000.  Mr. Fielding persuaded parliament that they would not cost  more than $11,0G0,000.  The total distance between Winnipeg and Quebec is 475 miles. If  in a trifiVmore than one-fourth of i  this mileage the actual cost exceeds  Some Good Definitions of Home.  The Brown Book had an occasion  recently to appeal to its readers for  some original definitions of Home,  and so many excellent answers  were received that a few of them  are published .below. The definitions in the main speak for themselves. They represent the  thought of many persons in many  conditions of life. What home  means or should mean, to the poor  man as well as the rich man, is  conveyed to the reader in the definitions given. Some are humorous; others are very far from being humorous; all are sincere. Between the words of many of them  one is able to discern the ideals of  the writer, and so far the best  sentiment, it is everywhere apparent. :  An Inn where love is landlord  and contentment chief guest.

MARSHALL, Prop, ������  People sometimes wonder at the  immense prices put upon wild animals. The forests of Africa and  other parts of the world are full of  wild beasts, they argue.. '.'It is  only necessary to trap them and  bring them home. Why/ then,  should a giraffe cost a thousand  pounds and a rhinoceros a similar  sum ?  It is only a big dealer in wild  beast3 who can explain why "his  commodities' are so costly. But  when he retails a few of the risks  in this most risky of all businesses  the only wonder left is, not that  wild beasts are "so dear, but that  they are as cheap, as tbey are.  Carl' Hageubeck. is the biggest  wild animal dealer in tho world.  Quite three-quarters of- the beasts  on exhibition all the world- over  have passed, through his hands.  His name is known in' African  jungle villages-where his kaiser's  has never been heard.  Africa is Hagenbeck's hunting  ground, and'his storehouse for wild  animals near -Cape Town covers  thirty acres acres of ground and  costs from $35;000 to 845,000 for  wages and .upkeep. . It must be  membered that nearly all the rare  animals of Africa have been driven  up' behind tho Zambesi. This  means two thousand mile's of toilsome traveling for the trapper be-  before a start can be made.  -, The last Natal hipp'opotoiniis  was killed about five years ago.  Koodoo, gnu and hartebeest have  long been practically extinct in the  colony, and though lions - are still  fairly common in Bhddivia, the  rarer creatures,' like giiaifo and  rhinoceros'ahd elephant, are con-  sfantly retiring before the white  man to the. centre of the continent.  ���������  ,- The man in charge of a trapping  expedition must be experienced,  resourceful, must know the country, the languages, and be something of a doctor in the bargain.  He takes fearful risks, especially  fever, and must be proportionately  paid. Hagenbeck gives his men  $60 a week and ail expenses. The  latter are enormous.  Native carriers must be hired by  the score. They know their worth  and insist on proportionate pay.  Each carries sixty pounds and the  charge on such a load merely from  the cost up to the Great Lakes is  two or three shillings a pound.  Big amounts of store aro -a necessity, for not only must guns ammunition, traps, tinned goods, groceries, portable boats and "medical  comforts be taken, but also large  amounts of cloth, needles and  beads .to pay the natives for fresh  supplies and for information.  That terrible insect, the tsetse  fly is another indirect cause to the  African trapper of great expense.  The creature, whose bite is fatal to  horses, mules and oxen, makes  human transport the only means  of getting goods up into the interior.  The item of traps is a serious  one. Lions are taken in a great  net eighteen feet square, and  by a very powerful elastic band.  Such a net costs $150 to $200 by  the time it reaches the scene of  of action, where it is set over a pit  near a water hole. Portable bamboo cages are also necessary in  which to transport tho savage captives.  Tho inexperienced man who  caught a rhinoceros in a pit in the  middle of Africa would be ^equally  puzzled as to how to get the creature out, or when out, to get it to  the coast. An inclined plane must  be dug for the first, and the huge  brute, half tamed with huuger and  fright, must be securely shackled  with great chains and ropes, and  so led through tangled forests or  over stony or sandy plains for hundreds of miles, at imminent risk to  his leaders' lives. Food and water  aro absolute necessary for such a  captive, and if the country is Bter-  ile such must bo carried. It is  wonderful how soon oven a  rhi  noceros will give up and die if not  properly fed.  ���������' ��������� The two- most difficult of all  known creatures, both to trap and  get to the coast, are. the giraffe  and the zebra. The latter, can  only be caught in high and barren  hills, and with the utmo?t difficulty because of its shyness ; while tho  giraffe is rapidly approaching extinction.  .The writer was told by a gentleman who had charge on its way  home of a zebra-'that was the only  ono that reached the coast out of  fourteen caught. '. Girraffes, too,  have a'heart breaking habit of dying on the way. ' ' .  Even when he has his animals  safe at the port for shipment, the  collector's troubles ,are, far fi om  over. Practically no tropical beast  will stand a'sudden .change to a,  damp, cold climate.. ��������� They must  be slowly and gradually hardened  off. Most elaborate apparatus for  this purpose is used 'in Hagenbeck's great storehouse, near Cape  Town. The temperature in the  lions'cages is slowly lowered by  means of ice.' Monkeys are accli-  .matized in similar fashion.  The India tapir is at present the  most expensiveof all wild animals;  $7,500 is its price, a giraffe now  fetching $5,000 to $G,000. - Two-  horned rhinoceroses cost $4,000 to  $5,000. But eome animals are  practically priceless. These include the African gorilla and the  Kadiak bear." The gorilla has  been caught; many specimens have  been, indeed, brought'to ,the west  coast, hut this man-like ape is so  habituated to the steamy atmosphere of its native forests that it is  the rarest thing for one to survive  the voyage.  As for the Kadiak bear, the  greatest of all the bear tribe,  which prowls through the wooded  valleys of Kadiak Island, off Alaska, no speciman has; yet been  caught alive. Seeing ,that the  creature weighs up to a ton, and is  strong' in proportion,- it seems  doubtful if a full grown one ever  be seen in a menagerie.'-^-Tit Bits.  ORE BLOCKED OUT ,  -The term "ore blocked out"'and  "ore in.sight," have been used so  freely, that investors are. sometimes at a loss to kuow just what  is meant. "  Ore blocked out is supposed to  be ore that has been opened ,on  four sides; ready to break down  and take to, mill or smelter. Ore  in sight is supposed to be ore opened sufficiently to permit of a  reasonable estimate'. The mere fact  that there are outcrops,- does not'  signify that there is any ore in  sight. But, if a tunnel has been  run into the property far enough  to expose the ore bodies, and if this  ore has been proved up above or  lower; or if a shaft has been sunk  far enough into the property to  open ore on several levels, that is  ore in sight.  Ore blocked out is always an- asset. It is beyond speculation. It  is a* tangible as dry goods,, groceries, hardware, or anything else  that can be turned into casli.

About thirty miles from the port  ofAcajutla, in Central, America,  there is generally in a state of erup-'  tion a huge volcano called Izalco.  At night when tying in the harbor  of Acajutla, you may see him  every twenty or thirty minutes  cover his summit with a mantle of  glowing,lava.  So far, well. That is exactly  what the people of tlie state keep  a careful watch over, and they go  to sleep with a sense of security as  long as he is in eruption. But if  he'stops for a few hours then they  are alarmed, as from centuries of  traditional experience they look for  a tremendous explosion soon, and  they put it down to this.  In the mountain, they say, lives  one big devil with a very large  family, for which he finds it difficult to provide, and over whom he  has much troublo in exercising  control. As a consequence there  are times- when the big devil's  larder is empty, tho kitchen fire  goes out. or someone in tho fiery  household has stomach disorder  with no medicine to hand.    *  So reasoning in this way they  take fooJ, chickens and bananas,  some medicine and cautiously approach as near the mountain as  they dare venture. Then they  light a fire, place tho fold beside it,  and hasten away to a safe distance  to watch and eee what will happen.  If Izalco again commeijces to eject  lava they are relieved and cry.  Ah, ha! Tho devil is; happy  again. See, ho is getting his supper. And thou they go to a cock  fight or start a revolution in perfect contentment.  But if Izalco docs not begin to  smoke and get his supper, then  they take flight away out of reach  of his vengeance until his angry  humor has passed over; aud really  their way of predicting a catastro-  pho seems to bo as good as any  othor.   Take plenty of air.  There is a vast difference  tween differing from a man in  judgment and in personal opposition to hini.. In the case of the  former there is honesty and manliness, but in the latter there is a  mean and contemptible narrowness,  that has its origin in spite, .envy  or jealousy. _ This sort of oppo-.  Bition ��������� carries with it personal  spleen and hostility. It cannot  "bear to see another go, forward to  preferment or success." The man  who can differ from you in judgment and on that score combat you  openly and.manfnlty with his arguments and facts, and at the same  time sustain to you a brotherly relation, is a Christian of the noblest  typo and worthy of your. friendship and admiration. But the  man whose opposition to }rou on  account of a'difference in judgment  becomes personal and mean, is  small of [soul, obtuse of mind and  is not worthy of pity or commiseration.���������Christian advocate.

The t ins of thousands of  -(immigrants who arc now  arriving  come through here,  and_one sees  on the streets, natives from eveiy  . region of ChrUt-.!iidom. There ai e  ..Germans, AiiFirians, Greeks. Norwegians, and Sw.cles, in; n/ <.f  ^JJicm dressed in the costumes of  *, the land from which they have  .come. Now and then one sees, an  , Englishman,   and   it   is   hard   to  throw a stone without st;i':ing an  .American.    At the same time, the  ���������most of the population is made up  ,.of Anglo Saxon Canadians, and altogether   they   look, not    unlike  those to be seen in St. Paul or Chicago.  .On one side of the Red River.  leached by a bridge, is the town of  ,S.t, Boniface where there aro . several  thousand  French-Canadians,  and there are also Russians, Jews,  Italians aud Syrians.  . ..Some distance from here, on the  shore of Lake "Winnipeg, is a col-  .ony of Icelanders, many  of whom  .have moved into the city.     Sonr-  iOf them are   lawyers,   others ar.  (teachers, aid not a few have inter  , married with the Canadians.  .   These Icelanders   were   amonp  jthe first of the "Western  Canadiai-  .immigrants.

The Ici-lan 1-  ks, and  iV-r  a  erg settled on its banks, and  time made moat of their living by  fishing, much of their catch being  through holes in the ice in the  winter. They aio now well scattered ever the country". Many of  the girls have gone into service  and not a few aro wuitjrs at the  hotels. These people are orderly.  They take to education and religion, the largest Icelandic church  in the world being in "Winnipeg.  There are alsD many Russians in  "Winnipeg, and a Russian church.  The Catholic population is large,  tho Fiench Canadians all belong-  ing to that denomination. There  is a Trappist monastery outside  tho city, and a Trappist nunnery.  Almost every denomination of  Protestants has its meeting-houses,  the Jews have a pj-nagogue, the  Salvation Army is waging i*s warfare against dissapation and sin',  and the Y. M. C. A. has its own  building, and is doing excellent-  work. Indeed, the whole city  worships the Lord under one religion . or another. It is a Godfearing, order-loving, Sabbath-  observing, and church-going municipality. It is so good that there  are no "Sunday newspapers. The  .street cars are not allowed to run  -n the Sabbath, and tho only j u>-  ic places open are the hotels and  he churches.  A   young   lady   working  in a  stocking factory, fearing that  her  chances for matrimony were small,  wrote the following and  slipped it  into   tho   toe   of   a   gentleman's  ! sock:    ''.A young lady, good  look-  i ing and of some means, would like  to correspond with the wearer of  this sock, if he  is siuglo   with  a  view to matrimony."     A young  man   bought tho  sock  and  sail':  '���������There's my chance."    lie  wrote  ! to the young lady offering  himsdf  j &i a suitable party, and to his  sui-  ��������� prise got this reply:    "I have been  married eight years aud  have five  children."

It was the last half of the ninth,  the bases were full and two out.  W ��������� were one run ahead of them,  an 1 they were at bat. A heavy  hitter was up, and I had two  strikes and three balls on him.  My control was in its usual state  an.l I had premonitions.  I took a long swing and threw  the ball straight at the batsman,  Horror! It started for the plate  and I saw it was going.to go wide.  Just then I felt the earth quiver  beneath 'my feet. The stands  seemed to move. As that ball  passed the batter the plate gave a  mighty heave and jumped over  right under where the ball was  cleaving its way through the air.

Good.Work of a Reporter  An article in tho Berlin Tage-  b-.att will undoubtedly greatly diminish, if not entirely destroy the  sale of American meat and packing house products in Germany.   .  A reporter connected with the  paper, has it sterns, been for  months in one !of tho largest  s'aughter houses, iu Chicago, disguised as a common laborer, and  the things he has seen,, are ofg the  most ie\olting nature.  The Tag-Matt declares that one  must necessarily lose all respect  for the people of the United States  who have been told of what is going on in the packing houses, who  know the stories that tainted  meats killed thousands of their  sons during the Spanish-American  war, aud who, nevertheless, allow  the Armours and their associates  to continue the shameful and criminal business.  The paper advises anyone who  wants to know what is happening  in the packing.houses to read the  "Jungle," a book which recently  'appeared iu the United States, and  which contains a terrible, but ly  no means exaggerated description  of the crimes of these particular  dollar-mad millionaires. The  German government, the paper  concludes, will not be doing its  duty toward its subjects if it did  not take measures to prevent a  pound of American packing house  products from being sold in Germany.

Since you are married you may  as well make the best of it.  So make some maxims and try to  live up to them.  And don't be discouraged if you  fail. You may fail but perhaps  you won't always fail.

Don't forget it.  Keep yourself at your best. It  is a compliment to your partner.  Keep your ideal high. You  may miss it, but it is better to miss  a hirh one than to hit a low one.
