NELSON,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,   MAE0H   19,   1892.  $4 A YEAE.  the  inrush  co}i.wi:\������;f.!k  The inrush to the Slocan mines has commenced, and by June 1st thousands of men will  be scattered throughout the stretch of country  lying on the western slope of the Selkirks and  extending as far northward as the big bend of  the Columbia, nearly 300 miles from the international bounctary. /That some of these men will  strike it rich- is not improbable, for the conntry-  is known to be a mineral-bearing one and it has  not been prospected to any great extent.    But  for every;man that strikes it rich, the search of  hundreds vvill be without other i-ewardthan experience���������and   unb<)iinded   gooxi  health���������which  will: stand them in stead in after years.    Men  will come ''from the sand and alkali deserts of the  south to find, if nothing else, the purest water  ever run  through  a sluice-box; and those who  come from the states and territories midst the  snow-capped peaks of the Rockies will be surprised to see the original glaciers, whose action  they have read much of, and the more they read  the less they understood.    From the far east will  come  men  firm in the belief thai   mines, like  stony-farms, are lying around loose in this sea  of mountains, but "after .-a month or two in the  hills they will know better;.and from across the  Atlantic will come the representatives of a civilization that wTe know little of, and who care to  know little of ours, as long as they can return  laden with the wealth that will give them influence and position in  the land from whence  they came.   "These people are.ail alike welcome,  for "in  no Other country   is  there more  elbow  room for strangers.  At  the  mouth  of Carpenter creek on Slocan  lake  is  the vanguard  of  this  inrush.     While  awaiting the disappearance of  the snow from  the mountains they have laid the foundation of  what may, in the near future, be a mining center  unequalled in  late years.     Leadville   may   be  eclipsed and Butte surpassed and Virginia City's  palmiest days outst lipped.    Then, again, the log  cabins these pioneers have built may within a  year be habited only by owls and.jack rabbits  and the builders be scattered to the four corners  of the earth. - That the provincial government  has faith in the country and knowledge of the  eligibleness  of   that   particular   locality   for  a  townsite is best proved by the fact that an appropriation has been made for a mining recorder  to be stationed there and for a building to shelter  him on his arrival.    Money has also been provided to cut  trails to the  disco verity and the  agent for the district instructed to begin the work  at- once. From parties who arrived at Nelson this  week it is learned that there are 50 men on the  lake and as many more scattered along the trail.  The camp boasts of 21 buildings, several of Ihem  quite pretentious structures.    The stock of supplies in the one store is running low, and one of  r>he members of the firm is now in Nelson making purchases.    Most of those already there and  those on the way in have provisions enough to  last a month to six weeks, and by that time a  pack train will be on the trail between the railroad and the head of the lake.    The lumber for  the steamboat has   been whipsawed  and  boat  builder Stephenson, one of the best on the Pacific coast, left Portland, Oregon, today to build  the   hull.    The   machinery   is   being   made   at  Toronto by the Doty Engine Compan.yffma&^is  contracted to be on the ground by Aaril 15th.  When completed the boat will be the^^^est  on the inland wraters of British ColumbilfSSrd is  expected-to   cover  the  distance  between   the  mouth of Carpenter creek and the lower end of  the lake (17 miles) in 70 minutes.    If this expectation is realized, the route between Nelson and  the mouth of the creek can  be covered in a day.  Even as it is now, William  Hunter, one of the  pioneers  of the  new camp,  made the distance  in two days, arriving at Nelson early in the evening of the second day.    He reports the trail in  pretty good condition, the snow not having all  disappeared.    He also says the boys do not care  to venture farther than the forks of Carpenter  creek for fear of snowslides.  The route up Kaslo creek will be later in open  ing, but even now when the crust is good in .the  early mornings, men afoot will have little difficulty in reaching the, new discoveries. This  route has been well advertised on the outside,  and many believe Kaslo City is the only town  on Kootenay lake and thart-Lt is within stone's  throw of^all' the min es in West Kootenay dis-  trict. These reports do the place no good, for  on their arrival newcomers will only be disappointed oh^finding that they have been mislead  and will leave the country disgusted. But the  average- townsite. speculator- is nothing if not a  colossal liar, and he makes his winnings by practices not a whit better than those adopted by  bunco and confidence men.  The following letters from  men ..well-known-  at Nelson a-nd who arrived at the mouth of Carpenter creek about two weeks ago, will give the  reader the impressions of men in no wise interested in the country other tban as prospectors:  Eldorado City, Slocan, March 8th.���������John Sanderson,  Nelson���������Dear sir: I arrived here safe and sound on Sunday about 5 o'clock. I had a very good trip up, the trail  being- in fair condition; The travel on it during the winter  packed the snow hard, and as it has not broken up much  yet, the walking was pretty good most of the way.\ \T.  laid over one day at the Halfway house on account of rain,  and the actual time taken in 'traveling from the railway  here was 2$:days. This is a rough country; but that don't  make much difference if it has plenty, of wealth in it. The  people here have.to raft logs for buildings dowri the lake  five or six miles, as there is nothing but small timber  around this great townsite ���������arid the townsite is good  enough too. There is no work of consequence going on  other-than^building cabins and business houses.. It is all  foolishness"!5or anyone to come; here now unless he wants to  put up a cabin or house on speculation, and even then he'  had better bring his supplies with him as there is.not much  here.,: There is ho fresh meat in the camp, not even fish,  and I am afraid everything will be short before we get a  good trail in here. The water in Slocan river is very low,  too low for good boating.    Fine weather lately.  WILLIAM M. GLOVER.  Carpenter Creek, March 12th.���������To the Editor of  Tun: Miner: Arrived here today, and do not find the outlook at all promising. There is between live and six feet  of snow on the hills where the rich discoveries are supposed to be. Nothing doing whatever to attract men here,  and there will not be for some time. Our trip up.Slocan  river was very hard, owing to our boat being a heavy one  and the low stage of water. We were eleven days on the  trip from the railroad. We advise all people intending to  make the trip uptfche river by boat to wait until the river  rises a little. Jack Evans and party are well, and all the  boys in the camp are in good health.  DUNCAN McRAE,    HUGH McRAE.  Although the distances have not been measured, the following are approximately correct:  FROM NELSON VIA SLOCAN RIVER.  Miles.

The Kootenay Lake country is an elysium for  law-abiding people, no matter- what their nationality, religion, or politics. People coming here  are not asked whether they are descendants of  an English lord or an Irish tenant farmer; or  whether their forefathers were communicants  of the holy mother church or worshippers of the  sun; and the only man in the whole lake country that is intolerant on political questions is  Jack Gibson, the Nelson druggist. But there is  one class of men the people here will not tolerate,  that is, men who pack six-shooters, and who  make desperado plays every time they drink  3-fineers of red liquor. Boys, before starting  for mis section of the Pacific coast, loan your  shooting-irons to your uncle, and on your arrival  h������������ you will not be long in rinding out that a  pistol is not needed in protecting either your  life or your property rights.  TUB 'WEEK'S    MINIXtt    NEWS.  Frank Fitch, who along with his partners Jack  O'Nei 1 and John Frit z, has been d oing d evelop-  ment work on the President, a claim on Duck  creek,  reports a tunnel in 60 feet.    While the  tunnel is not on the main ledge, it has been in  ore all the way. He expects to strike the main  ore body in about another 50 feet. T. G. Wells,  who- has been at work on the Tarn O'Sbanter������ a  claim on the east side of the lake, reports that,  property looking fine. The tunnel is in about  140 feet on t.he 1 edge, which sho\ys a5-inch strea k  of ruby silver that gives high assays. The ledge  is well defined and carries a good grade of ore  its entire width. Owing to the breakage of the  pump, work was suspended on the United mine  at Ainsworth. Work has also been suspended on  the Neosho, owing to the '-inflow of water. The  shaft was sunk 100 feet by windlass, and the  water cannot now be handled without machinery. Superintendent Wallace goes to Seattle to  consult the Owners of the property. Pending  letting a contract to sink the shaft another  100 feet, all work other than keeping the pumps  running has been suspended ontheKrao. Everything is running along snioot^^ the Tenderfoot and the Skyline.  The Troubles of a Contractor.  A short time ago, Harper's Monthly contained  a descriptive sketch, entitled ''Dan Dunn's Out-  tit," in wdiich the principal character (Dan Dunn)  was   portrayed   as   a genial,   supple   giant,   as  .straight.: as���������-,��������� a jack piiip, and  on  whose  broad  shoulders rested  the carrying to  a successful  completion the construction of the Columbia &  Kootenay railway.    If the -writer of that sketch  had  only sauntered  along the water front   at  Nelson of late,  he would not  have recognized  his hero in the man who bosses the job of constructing the new government wharf at the foot  of Hall street.    Instead of a genial, supple giant,  he would have found a cross, -bee-rippled Irishman playing in hard luck.    Mr. Dunn is the contractor for the wharf, and has been beset with  troubles   from   the   start.     First,   his   partner  backed out on discovering that- he had figured  the job  too  low; then the ice in the outlet delayed the bringing.'down of the piles.    Next, in  erecting the derrick, he stepped on a nail, which  laid  him  up for several  days.    Then,  just  as  things began to work smoothly and the profits  appear on the right side of the ledger, the derrick toppled over, and along with it disappeared  the profits.    Now Dan goes limping around with  his right foot bandaged in gunny sacks, wondering whether or not his calculations of making  enough out of the job to pay for  his winter's  grub will be actually realized.  Competitive Transportation  Ifcontes.  The towns and camps in the Kootenay Lake  country, now that navigation has been resumed,  will have the benefit of competitive freight and  passenger rates. The Spokane arrived at Ainsworth on Thursday and Nelson the next clay,  bringing in quite a number of passengers and  several tons of freight. Her owners informed  local merchants that the rate from Bonner's  Ferry would be 25 cents a hundred, and that on  the completion of the Great Northern to that  place the through rate from Spokane would be  50 cents. The announced rate by way of Little  Dalles and Robson is 82 cents. The difference is  enough to send the bulk of the freight, byway  of Bonner's Ferry. The Lytton left Little Dalles  this afternoon at 1:20 with 50 passengers.  Will  Start a Uoat Line.  M. C. Monaghan, an experienced boatman,  leaves Nelson with boats and men to establish a  boat line on Slocan lake, to be run in connection  with Wilson & Perdue's pack train, which is  now on the way in from Kettle river. The  pack train will be run from the. railroad to the  lake, where connection will be made with the  boats. The first shipment will be supplies for  Hunter & McKinnon.  ** "a.  ���������UJ*-;  mmmmwsmmmmmmmmimstimmt������  i^ftgaBaw^iissBB^  MUflnjmiUKumujM It ���������  t!������**���������������' !T5-������^- --* r~ZtU-J*:~*  THE  MDTEB:    KELSON,  E.   0.,   SATUEDAY,  MAEOH 19,  1892.

Theoretically the   money value  of  diamonds  increases with their- size, not in arithmetical but  in geometrical ratio; that is to say, while a stone  of a carat in weight is worth, say, $100, it does  not follow that each carat added makes it worth  only $100 for each of those 2 carats.    A 2-carat  stone is   worth  $200;   a 3-carat  stone  $400;  a  4-carat stone, $800; a 5-carat stone $1600 and so  on.    Put, after all, this statement of prices is  theoretical, purely, for so much depends on color,  quality, the amount of production and the state  of the market that it cannot be accepted as a  rule.- There are stones of 50carats that are  worth nothing except to be placed in cabinets or  crushed for dust and drill points, whereas there  is a stone in New York of only one carat that is  worth $1000, so perfect is it in quality and "cut  ting,  a   blue-white  gem  of.  erlorious  fire.     A  European writer proclaims that the day of fancy  prices for gems has gone by, and that   in the  future $250,000 may be taken as the largest sum  that will ever be paid for any gem soever.    The  sale of French crown jewels and other famous  pieces certainly gives a foundation foi: this statement, and if the Koh-i-noor and gems of that  class ever conie up for sale it will doubtless be  found that the value of millions, now set upon  them,   exists   by tacit" admission,'perhaps,  but  that nobody  will   be  found   to pay the price.  There are several reasons for this.    The first is  that as jewels are now in general use any exaggeration   of the  ordinary  types,-'except, at  the most important state balls and functions, or*  at the opera, is discountenanced as a vain and  vulgar display; the second is that the thieves of  today are so skillful that nobody, unless he had  a bank vault and an armory, would be safe in  the possession   of   such   stones   as   adorn   the,  crowns and other royal. gew-gaws of Europe;  but the third and most important reason is that  few  men  and   women,   even   when   they  have  great wealth, are disposed to lock up large sums  of money in mere ornaments, for the tendency  of the time is to make capital pay in the form  of interest.     A  man   with   a.  million   to  spare  would bank it in mortgages or houses or real estate or bonds or stocks or something that would  yield  gains -in  the form  of interest,  dividend,  rent, or the gain of unearned increment.    The  Astors,  with more money  than  they  can possibly spend, put all the   money  they, can spare  into real estate and rents and are as eager for a  lew more dollars as if they had ironed  People  like that can  afford diamonds, and the exhibitions made by the women of this family at balls  and at the.opera., are quite interesting; but even  they seldom  buy diamonds  or other* stones of  unusual size or cost, their ropes and crowns and  stars of jewels  containing few gems that compare in size with those of royalty.    The money  that such  specimens would cost they have put  into houses and  lots,  and they are realizing a  prodigious income on their investments.  .A  Little Mining  SJoiBaaiM'C.  The great Mollie Gibson mine at Aspen, Colorado, which will distribute $328,000 in dividends  this month and $'400,000 in April has not always  paid as well as it does now, but has been a steady  producer. Some year's ago miss Mollie Gibson,  after whom the mine is named, got married and  took a bridal trip. When she returned to Aspen  she told her father, as the mine was paying well,  he ought to give her a marriage settlement. The  old  gentleman thought   the  matter  over,  and  finally told his daughter that she might pick out  any two of his miners, and the ore they took  out in a day should be her's.    Mollie thought the  matter over and was hurt because her, father  was so stingy.    Old man Gibson's offer came to  the ears of the miners, with  whom Mollie was  a great favorite, and two of them called on her  and asked her to choose them, promising they  would give her a day's work the proceeds from  which would be no mean dot.    After* vainly attempting to have her father' give her ���������something'  more substantial, she told the  boys they could  go ahead, and they did so.    They shot a pocket  and in one day they took out $36,000 worth of  ore.    The cunning fellows had known the existence  of that pocket  for  some  time and  only  waited the word from Mollie to discover it.   Old.  man Gibson was as good as his word and gave  Mollie that money, but it wasn't all he gave her.  She used the $36,000 to build a house, one of the  finest in Aspen.    The two miners were also'substantially remembered, and both  of them are  uowT rich men-   This is the story that is told.   It  is a. pretty one.  Ail Exp i a it ;iti on.  Spokane Review, 4th: "The Nelson Miner, commenting  on the formation of the Silver Prince Mining Company in  this city, remarks that there is no Silver Prince mine recorded in Nelson district. There is nothing remarkable  about this, as the company was organized to work the Copper King, which is tolerably well knoAvn in Spokane, if not  in Nelson. It was proposed to change the name of this  claim to Silver Prince, bat after due deliberation it was  decided to let matters rest as they were."  There is a claim on Toad mountain named the  "Copper King," but it is better known in Nelson  as the "Daisy."    The Spokane claimantsc call it  by the former name; the Nelson claimants, by  the latter. Its worth is as problematic as its  ownership, and it is an open question whether  the "Silver Prince Mining Company" will not  work harder at selling stock than developing  the claim.  2&ci>i'csc*it.a&ives   at' Vancouver,   New   Westsaalnstea-,  nutl.

I'm getting no younger, and I may get whipped  in my old age, you know; but I don't think  there's a man on earth that can whip me now.  I hope to fight Slavin the last Week in y^ugust or  the first week in September, provided he can  raise the'-stuff.

Something remarkable in the transportation  of passengers, etc., across country is seen in the  claim   of  an   inventor  of  .electrical   apparatus.  His intention is to construct a railroad, the cars  running, over it to be propelled at a rate of speed  something like 200 miles an hour, or averaging  3& miles each minute.    The motive power is electricity, the current being communicated directly  to the motor by means of a third rail, which is  arranged to be a complete conductor in any kind  of weather.    To guard against danger from the  cars jumping   the  track,   which,   by   the  way,  would  be inevitable  were  no provisions made,  each  truck  is  equipped  with  a strong   sliding  clutch or shoe sliding along the third rail.    The  rails are of very heavy quality, and the roadbed  is   to   be  especially  constructed   and to  be   the  most  substantial   possible.    Each  car  is   to   be  provided with 200-horse motors.    The inventor  states that he will harness Niagara Falls, manufacture his electricity there and  run it by feed  wires to the main line.    If the plans materalize  the road is to be established between New York  citv and San Francisco.  A   flgcpiilntioift   to   Sustf.'iiiii.  "In writing up the burglary," said the excited  caller, "you can say the thieves in their hurry  overlooked $750 worth of jewelry and solid silver  plate in one of the closets." "Might not that  bring the burglars to your house a second time?"  suggested the city editor. "I don't care if it  does," exclaimed the other. "I don't want the  public to get the impression that a gang of robbers can go through my house and only find $25  worth of stuff worth stealin."

It is not known what action the government  will take in the .-'matter of aiding the .-/Nelson. &  Fort  Sheppard  railway  with a" grant of lrxnd.  The railway is needed, as it is the. only one likely  to be built at ah earlyr day that will give the  mining camps on Kootenay lake an all-tlie-year-  round  connection   with   railway  systems  that  have direct  connections   with  the  coinmercial  cities of the eastern provinces and of the coast.  The argument that the road, if built, will divert  traffic from Canadian roads to American roads,  therefore its building is not in the interest of  Canada., is not a good one, for it is difficult to  determine whereto draw the line between Canadian and American roads.    Canada lias but two  railway systems, the Canadian Pacific and the  Grand Trunk.    Both systems have large mileage  in the United States, and, apparently, both are  making greater efforts to extend their mileage  in the  Uniter!  States than in Canada.    One ,of  the American   systems  (the 'Northern   Pacific)  with which the Nelson & Fort Sheppard would  indirectly  connect  has  also  considerable mile-  age in   Canada,   and   is   willing   to   extend   it  if   only   accorded    fair    play.      The    building  of   the   Nelson   & Fort   Sheppard   road  would  hasten the building of a branch from the main  line of the Canadian Pacific,  and its building-  would do as much for the eastern section of the  province as the  building  of the  Westminster  Southern did for the western section.    The land  grant, if made on the lines suggested by the business men of Nelson, could work no great in jury  on the province, for if the land along the line of  the railway is valuable for other purposes than  the   minerals  which  it is supposed to contain,  the alternate sections retained by the province  will be more valuable after the building of the  road than the whole is without a road..  On no  condition, however, should any railway be given  a grant   to   be selected from lands throughout  the district or province.    One such grant���������that  of the Columbia & Kootenav���������is enough.  The defeat of Mercier and his adherents in the  provincial elections in Quebec will, for a time,  relegate to back  seats a set  of men  who have  done much to discredit the Canadian people and  Canadian institutions in both Great Britain and  the United States.    Probably  no more corrupt  and  unscrupulous politician  than Mercier ever  gained power in a Canadian province, and it is  doubtful if the men  who  will  succeed him in  office are much better.   Quebec, unlike the other  provinces of the Dominion, is wedded to a church  whose priests are all politicians.    Through these  priests  men   like   Mercier   gain  power.    Until  church and state is divorced, there is not much  hope that the ancient province's condition will  be improved, for it is history that the church is  always hungry, and to satisfy its hunger is wil  ling to aid plunderers like Mercier gain positions  of trust. _v_  It is not much wonder the elder mrs. Blaine  objected to the wife of her youngest son, a woman now posing as the greatly injured divorced  one, and who within a few months will be posing on the stage for the admiration of bald-  headed men on the front seats of cheap theaters.  The following is from the Dead wood -Times of  the 5th: "Mrs. Marv Nevins Blaine, while in  " this city, tried to purchase an Indian woman's  "buckskin dress. She said she wanted some-  " thing very handsome, covered with beads of  " all colors, that would be very attractive. The  " garb she desired could not be found and she  " was obliged to content, herself with an Indian  '; belt. She said that she vvanted the articles to  " wear upon the stage."  While the amount appropriated to aid in the  maintenance of a hospital at Nelson is not as  , large as wTas expected, yet it-is 'sufficiently-large  for a beginning. The people here must first  show that they mean business by getting a  hospital built before they can ask the government to maintain it.

That heredity is a cause of disease admits of  no doubt.    It is not the disease itself,  but the  tendency thereto, that is inherited, just as other  physical peculiarities are. Readers will remember  the horseshoe vein on the forehead which was  the badge of all the tribe of Redgauntlet; and  there is a well-known family in the  south of,  France which for more than three centuries has  boasted  a white lock  of   hair.    The   Bourbon  nose, and the thick lips of the Hapsburgs, are  other instances  in   point.    Consumption,  gout,  insanity and cancer are the diseases which show  the greatest tendency to run in families.   Of the  hereditary  transmission  of gout  nearly   every  noble family in Europe can show the most conclusive proof.    With regard to cancer the case  is not so clear; but statistics prove that heredity   |  can be more or less distinctly made out in a con-   |  siderable proportion of those  who fall victims   J  to the disease.    The Bonaparte family furnishes   '  a remarkable example of the hereditary transmission of cancer.r One of the parents of  Napoleon   I.   died   of   cancer   of   the   liver   or  stomach.    He   himself  stomach,    which    also  brother Lucien ancl to  Pauline  Borghese.    A  disease  may  not show  died  of   cancer  of   the  proved    fatal    to   his  his sister, the beautiful  h ered i t ar v  ten de n c y  to  itself till an  advanced  period of life, as professor Huxley, in his charming autobiographical sketch has1 lately told us  that a peculiar movement of the hands which  was habitual in his 'nipther has recently shown  itself in him. The moral to be drawn from these  facts is that if a man has reason to suspect that  lie inherits a tendency to a particular disease, he  should be careful to exposing himself to the conditions which favor its development. He should  also be mindful of his posterity, actual or possible. Most people use their bodies as if they  were their property in fee simple. This is hardly  fair to their descendenfs. A man should undoubtedly treat his body as though it were  strictly entailed, and the rights of his heirs  should be, as far as possible, respected. If the  attack of the disease can by any means be kept  off. it is possible that in time the family taint  rriav be eliminated.  Booing- Wetter Work .Abroad  Than at Home.  Jesse Seliginan, thefamous New York banker,  is a Hebrew.    He is spending a few  months in  the Old World in search'of rest and recreation.  Writing from  Cairo, Egypt, January 4th, 1S92,  to an eastern journal, he says:    "I am glad to  inform you that the American missionaries along  the Nile are doing splendid work. You can  scarcely enter a single town or village without  finding their nicely constructed school houses,  where these Arabs are taught; and it would be  astonishing to you to hear with what pride they  say they were taught at the American Mission  School. In fact, if they continue in like manner,  it will be but a few years before these young  scholars will be asking to have Egypt annexed  to the United States." He^eis testimony from  an independent source, from an intelligent gentleman not likely to be deceived, and he gives  his hearty commendation to the work of the  missionaries among the Copts.  desire to give notice to their patrons that they intend  shortly to discontinue the GROCERY AND PROVISION  department of their business, and devote themselves entirely to the ENGLISH CLOTHING and MEN'S FURNISHING department, which they will continue to otfer  as heretofore at prices that defy competition.

In that first year of the war men were terribly  unjust to men. He who Tost his nerve as he  stood in battle line was at once stigmatized as a  coward, and in some instances the disgrace followed him until he yielded up his life on the  field. We did not know the difference between  cowardice and loss of nerve.    We had to learn  that as we learned a hundred other things in  war.       . ' ��������� ��������� '������������������������������������     :,.,,.^. ������������������'.  Did you ever see a coward in the ranks? No,  not one! A constitutional coward could not  have been induced to enlist. If drafted into the  service he deserted, or his fears made him really  ill and kept him at the rear. You saw men, and  you saw them in your own company, who were  stigmatized as cowards, but later oil you apologized for your mistake and took them into companionship again. You came to realize that the  bravest of men would break down under certain  conditions, and that to be found "off," as the*  men termed it, was a misfortune and not a.1 disgrace."-..'" . .  We are in line at Williamsburg, Virginia, and  our regiment is on the extreme left. It is our  first fight. We were cheering as we swung into  line. Had the order been to charge no man  would have thought of death. We have been  held in line for an hour, with sharp fighting all  along to the right. We have lost 7 men out of  the regiment, and the suspense is unnerving us.  Men begin to look to the right or the left. Faces  grow pale and limbs tremble. If there was a  ditch in front of us half of the regiment would  leap into it. There is a wavering along the lines,  and but for the line of officers in the rear we  should retreat as a mob. Here is a soldier shaking as with the ague; there is one silently.weeping; a third clutches his comrade to hold him-  self up. -..''   :_ . f ��������� ���������    ������������������_;  Cowards? No���������not one of them! It is the  fault of the officers; they have not yet learned  how to hold rnen under fire. They curse at us,  but there is a tremor in every voice, and we feel  that they are also unnerved. It looks like cowardice to see men sink down on their knees���������to  see. the officers oh the right threatening with  their swords���������to note the pale faces and chattering teeth, but it is not. Wait!  "Forward���������guide right!"  Ah!   That's different!   See how the lines dress  as they move!    Has anyone been left groveling  on the grass?    Can't you see that color come  back to the men's faces as they step off?  "Now, men���������double quick���������charge!"  Cowards, eh?    Hear them cheer!  Down go the lines with a rush, straight at the  abatis  of   fallen  trees protecting the enemy's  front, and the roll call that night leaves a tenth  of the regiment dead and wounded behind us as  a  proof that  we  were not cowards.    The suspense of waiting was simply unnerving brave  men.  Pickett's Virginians are sweeping across the  fields at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on that famous charge. We have been waiting, waiting,  waiting. We have been lying inactive for two  hours, while 200 cannon have roared and thundered and sent death among us. See the big  sergeant! He is weeping and wringing his  hands. Coward! No! He has been in half a  dozen battles, and his last wound is not fairly  healed. The waiting has unnerved him. Our  captain has learned his lesson. He steps forward-arid pats the sergeant on the shoulder and  whispers:  "Steady, my man! They are coming! It will  soon be over! There go the guns on our right!  Brace up now, for we want one of those battle  fiags."  See the change. The big sergeant's nerve  came back in an instant. Indeed, he was unconscious of the fact that he had lost it. When the  shock came���������when the gallant Virginians, whose  brave charge the world will applaud for a century to come, were checked by the merciless  musketry fire���������the big sergeant dashed forward  into the flame and smoke, and we found him  later on, wounded in two places, but sturdily  clinging to the flag he had captured to the honor  of his company and regiment.  Centralizing Their Business.  The firm referred to below is almost as well  known in the lake country as any of the local  firms: "Holley, Mason, Marks & Co., the large  hardware dealers of Spokane, have disposed of  all their branch houses in the Cceur d'Alene  country to a company recently organized under  the name of the Cceur d'Alene Hardware Company. The sale includes the branches of the  Spokane firm at Wallace, Wardner, Mullan, and  Murray. The new company has a large capital  and is organized with J. A. French, a large Cceur  d'Alene mine owner, as president, and E. H.  Moffitt, formerly vice-president of Holley, Mason,  Marks & Co., as secretary. Their main house  will be at Wallace with branches at the other  towns mentioned. J. R.

The next move will be to add another 5 per cent  to the discount, then another. If we mistake  not, the express charges on silver from either  one. of these towns to the towns on Puget Sound  is less than one-half of 1 per cent, at which  towns they have correspondents who would  gladly take the silver at par, for it is a well-  known fact that silver for '"making change" is  always scarce in western towns. But rather  than do this, these gold bug institutions will  "shylock" their customers out of 5 per cent on  silver deposits. _^   It is to be Sloped iliat it is True.

SMALL   NUGGETS   OF   NEWS.  The beef famine has been lifted, Billy Perdue  arriving at Nelson on Friday with, as fine a bunch  of beef cattle as was ever slaughtered in a real  live "mining center," one of them dressing 1034  pounds.  The entertainment on Thursday night, the  proceeds of which was for the benefit of one of  the church organizations intending to do business at Nelson in the future, was a delightful  one. Mat Garrity delivered a recitation, entitled "Of All the Bad Breaks I Ever Made,  This is the Worst."  The track of the Columbia <fc Kootenay is reported in good condition by conductor Elson  and engineer Powers. A train will leave Nelson  tomorrow to bring in the steamer Lytton's  passengers.  Not exactly a boom: The only real estate  transfer made during the week was lot 14 block  14, from J. E. Mellor to W. B. Muir, for $425.  The Hotel Phair, according to the "ad" of its  manager, is not only open for business but is the  best prepared of any hotel in the world to care  for travelers���������with money.  Dr. LaBau, one of the largest mine owners in  Kootenay district, rowed down to Nelson from  Ainsworth this week, merely to confer with  Charles Van Ness regarding a work they are  about to issue jointly. The work will be entitled, "Ten Nights in Old Mexico."  The lake at the head of Cottonwood Smith  creek abounds in trout, and expert fishermen  bring in fine strings daily.  It is reported that gold commissioner Fitz-  stubbs is on his way in from" Victoria." It is  understood that he has instructions to put the  Slocan river trail in thorough repair, so that  supplies can be packed into the Slocan country.  H. Byers, manager of the Galena Trading  Company, Limited, writes from Montreal that  his company expects to have a full stock of hardware at Nelson early in April. He also says  that he has done a little evangelical work on the  side���������having delivered a lecture on the "Mining  .Resources of West Kootenay District" in the  hall of the Young Men's Christian Association.  With such able and zealous missionaries in the  field as mr. Byers and captain Tatlow and mr.  Lynch, the eastern moneyed heathens will surely  be made believers in the true faith, that is, that  this is a land flowing with milk and honey.  The watersworks company is enlarging the  Ward creek dam so that it will hold 100,000 gallons of water. In the mean time, paying consumers as well as the few consumers who borrow  from their neighbors, will be occasionally without a water supply.  E. R. Atherton returned to Nelson from New  Brunswick last Saturday. While at Trail he  saw some of the specimens of gold ore from the  recent strike in that district, and pronounces it  the richest looking ore he has yet seen.  Two desperadoes from the Cceur d'Alene country made an easy clean-up at Trail one night  last week. They walked into a room where a  game of poker was in progress and coolly raked  off all the money on the table���������some $50���������and  walked out. On their arrival at Nelson they  made gun plays in several places and acted in a  manner not at all to the liking of peaceable citizens. Their guns are now in the possession of  constable Scoley; and the two bold, bad men appear as if they wished they had remained south  of the boundary line.  The hull of Jim Buchanan's and Bob Yuill's  new boat is partly planked and the flooring of  the deck laid. The hull is built on one of Stephenson's models, and is pronounced a good one by  steamboat men.  The store building for the Galena Trading  Company at the Pilot Bay smelter site is nearly  completed, as is the smelter company's outer  wharf.  Local capitalists like Jim Gilker and Frank  Teetzel and Charles Van Ness and J. Fred Hume  and W. A. Crane are proud in the possession of  gilt-edge collateral in the shape of stock certificates issued by the "Kootenay Lake Telephone  Company, Limited."  Men who understand market gardening can  get a good layout by applying to Robert Wood,  at Davenports landing, 5 miles below Nelson.  The frame of the Presbyterian church is up  and enclosed, and the Methodist parson, rev. mr.  Turner, is looking around for an eligable site on  which to erect a* church for his flock.  - : HOTELr;:PHAIR, ...:/;������������������';  NELSON.  Rates $3 and $4 a day.
