Stnrtstnan, che Kaslo young  man who attempted to keep himself in  pocket money by uttering forged checks,  was sent over the road for five years by  Judge Spinks on YVenesday afternoon.  The particulars of Startsman's career  in Nelson were published in the Miner  last month at the time of his committal.  J. H.Bowes presented the case for the  crown, the defence being left with R. L.  Harrison.  A. W. Wright, whose name was  forged to the fifty dollar check which  was presented at the Bank of Montreal,  testified that his signature was forged,  and further that he did not owe Starts-  man any money.  G. O. Hunt recited  to the court how  the prisoner had requested him to go to  the. bank and get the check cashed, aud  how he did not consider that he had  sufficient time on his hands to wait until  cashier Craig turned over the money.  Leonard Craig, the Bank of Montreal  cashier, to whom the check was presented for payment, said that his suspicions were aroused by the fact that  while the check, by date, was assumed  to be three days old, the ink was quite  new. He also gave expert evidence on  the prisoner's penmanship in connection with the forged check and two  others which were genuine, and which  had been cashed at the bank, his evidence going to show that Startsmau  was the penman.  Constable Miles, who made the arrest,  identified the forged check which Starts-  man had endeavored to utter as the  same found on the prisoner after .arrest,  and a bunch of Bank of Montreal's blank  check forms. He also identified some  of the prisoners'specimens of penmanship.  The counsel for the crown sought to  put in evidence concerning- another  forged ceeek in which Startsmau had  figured, but the court held that as the  check was not in evidence anything  bearing mi it was not admissable.  The prisoner's counsel did not examine any of the witnesses of the crown,  and the case.was practically closed with  the evidence of L. .Henderson, which  had little bearing on the case.  The judge then announced the verdict  That the Purees of the C'lmrch and the Devil  Should  Unite.  The Kaslo Theatre Comique is doomed.  While other enterprises have been  caught in the pinch of adversity and  sent to the wall, the Comique has flourished. It kept the dimes out of the  saloon keepers till, and the "siller" from  the church coffers, but now a change is  to be effected.  A movement is on foot in Kaslo to  unite the forces of the church people  and the saloon keepers, find close the  place up. A meeting of the star chamber variety was called for Saturday last  and the fight may be expected to commence shortly.  COL.

On the court re-assemblingafter lunch  the prisoner was asked if he had anything to say with respect to any claim  on the clemency of the court. He then  proceeded to explain how he came, into  possession of the check, but was cut  short by the judge, reminding' him that  his defence had been closed.  R. L. Harrison then urged the clemency of the court on his behalf.  The court thenfct-'vyelt upon tiie enormity of the offence, and said that had  the prisoner been guiltyxof a previous  offence of a similar nature he would  sentence him for life, but as it was he  would give him the lightest possible  sentence in accordance with his judgement, which would be imprisonment  for five years.  The prisoner took his medicine with  an effort, and left the court as speedily  as possible in custody.  Colonel C. Coy, the editor, manager  and proprietor of the Kaslo-Slocan  Examiner, figured as the defendent iu  three suits brought against him for  wages by former employes, in the county  court this week.  Running a newspaper is not the easiest kind of a puzzle in hard times especially when those employed expect payment in specie, hence. Coy's little difficulty.  The first case called was that  of  Margaret O'Rourke  for $130 wages  costs  of suit.    To this   a   verdict,  entered by consent.  The second case was somewhat mixed  up. It was brought by R. E. Seysler,  and represented wages. He settled his  claim against C. Coy for $152 and will  bring suit against E. E. Coy for- $142  which also represents wages.  The third case, that of "B.   R.   Atkins,  for $35.25, also for wages, was contested.  Miss  and  was  Step by step the Silver King deal is  shaping itself in a satisfactory manner.  After the positive news was received in  Nelson that.the "Hall Mines" company  had been floated, the arrival of the expert engineer,  said   to  be then  on   the  way, was anxiously looked for. Upon  his report would depend much of the  immediate value to Nelson of the consummation of the deal.  A few days ago Engineer Harvey of  the company, and H. E. Croasdaile  arrived in Nelson. No time was lost,  but as quickly as an outfit could be gotten together a visit was paid to the  mine, and a thorough examination made  of the property.  It is too soon to form any very definite idea of just what shape the first  work under the new proprietors will  take. Roads must be built; a tramway  laid out; and if the advice of the expert,  Mr. Roepel is followed, one of the first  things to be doue will be the selection  of a site for the smelter for matteing the  product of the mines.  It is probable that some time will be  spent in the preliminary surveys, as-,  much depends, in the laying out of a.  work of such magnitude, on having-  everything right to begin with. In.  this the. reputation of Engineer Harvey  is of the highest, he having been em-.  cployed for some time by the heaviest  companies in the world for the carrying-  on of such works.  Two of the director's of the company  are now on the way from England, and  on their anival something in the way-  of active work may be looked for.  0. P. E. OAPTUEES PEEIGHT  HENDEESON'S CONTEMPT  Great Bargain can, be had for Cash.  BAKER   STBEET,  NELSON.   B..O.  Came Within an Ace of Sending   him Over  the Koad.  Following theStartsman case, L. Henderson, the Kaslo man who refused to  give up a check supposed to have been  forged, on tne order of the Gold Commissioner, was brought into court on a  charge of contempt.  Ha had one of the Startsrnan checks  which the crown suspicioned were  forgeries. He was subpeenied to bring  the same into court and failed. He also  refused to give it up to the crown officer unless fifty dollar's paid for it. j  In his evidence he excused his neglect  to obey the subpoena by saying that he  had rrrislaid it, and under cross-examination by the crown counsel he admitted  that he had mislaid it after he knew it I  was wanted in the court. ;  Henderson was kept on the ragged I  edge of suspense for- some minutes while i  the judge discoursed on his offence in- '  forming the offender' that no one would i  believe but that he had destroyed  the  Coy's defence was that he had discharged Atkins during the middle of  the month and that he therefere did not  owe. him anything.  The evidence brought out the fact  that the plaintiff had been approached  by Coy and informed that the. newspaper could not afford to keep him employed any longer, and to this Atkins  replied that if he was paid up in full he.  would quit. Coy did. not have the  money iii his hand at the. time, so he  discharged Atkinswithout pay, and he  refreshingly informed the court that he  thought Atkins understood it that  way.  To offset this Atkins testified that he  worked the remainder of the month, as  he had not been paid, doing his regular  work. He put in a file of the paper as  evidence, in which he had his contributions marked out to show the amount  of work which he had done.  In reply to this Coy stated that he  was aware that Atkins was hanging  around the office, but he added that he  had incidentally mentioned to Atkins  that if he did not cease loafing around  the office he would get a policeman to  assist him in keeping away. In this  connection it dropped out that Atkins  had suggested that Coy perform the  mission he wished to assign to the  constable���������but he didn't.  The court entered judgment in this  case against the defendant.  the  that  From Us Slow-Geared Uival   Known n"<  Ureal Northern.  Those Kaslo people who thought  the Great Northern  railroad  company  was the savior of the Kootenay country  will be surprised to find the Slocan   ores  going over the C. PVR. enroute for Tacoma and San Francisco via Vancouver.  The hoggishnessof the  Great Northern' road at   Bonner's   Ferry  was  such  that they would not put in a small spur  at the steamer landing, and avoid dray-  age   on   through  freight.    Their  treatment of freight was not  satisfactory  to  the mine owners, and the C. P. R.   having made rates of $9 per ton to Tacoma,  and $11 per t on  to   San   Francisco,   the  bulk of the ore shipments between   now  and the close of navigation may be  expected to go   through  Nelson via    the  C. P. R.  The C. P. R. company must give the  ore more handling than ' the American  road, and it speaks well for the company  that it can give, competitive rates with  its rival.  KAMLOOPS BTJENED  NOTES PEOM TEOIJT LAKE.  Mr. Hoare who lately made a rich find  near the North Fork, went out yesterday to see the xepresentatives of the  syndicate for which he has been prospecting.    It is said that his new  claim  will probably turn out to be one   of  the  richest finds'of the year.  Several men have gone to try the  doubtful proposition of placer mining  up the Lardeau.  An indignation meeting was held  recently to express disapproval of the  manner in which the money appropriated for the various trails in the vicinity has been expended. It is claimed  that sonre of the trails go in the wrong  direction, and others are unnecessarily  long.  It is proposed to make some arrangements to secure a regular fortnightly  mail during the winter, to be carried  over the snow on foot. I  The Business Portion of the Town  is  Rather  K-udly Scorched.  Kamloops has much the appearance  of a burnt offering this week.  Shortly after five o'clock Sunday  morning a fire was noticed in Vair's  hardware establishment. The town  turned out but a high wind baffled their  efforts ^at checking the spread of the  flames.  Two small houses adjoining Vair's  were ignited, and a short time afterward a Chinese tnercnant's establishment was gathered in with its stock  worth $10,000.  On the other side of the street a carpenter shop was burned together with  the Dominion government's land office.  E. G. Prior's hardware establishment,  a tailor shop and Whittaker's law office.  J A Mara's dwelling and Fortune's  dwelling were also destroyed/but in the  former all the household effects were  saved.  The total loss will foot up to about  $SO,000, a portion of which is covered  bv insurance.  his  has  Rev. T. H. Roger's has sent in  resignation to the presbytery and it  been accepted.  W. A. Jowett is back from the coast,  lie and the Crown Prince of Austria  made the trip down the   river  together.  The steamer-Idaho is at present tied  up in Nelson, and likely to so remain  until a moonlight Hit from Bonner's  Ferry is explained to the satisfaction of  the sheriff whose polite request to "stay  awhile" was unheeded.

We are of the opinion, therefore, that  upon those who selfishly attempted to  force the hand of the government in  their own interests, by the premature  construction of a badly located road,  should rest the responsibility aud the  cost of their- own ill considered action.  An Observer.  THAT WACOIV ROAD.  Those who are interested in having  tho government pay the private debts  ���������contracted by those in charge of the  -Kaslo wagon road, are using the rSxani-  iner for what it is worth in noising  t.Heir wishes abroad. TSlsowhorc will be  found a, communication 'which'rather  ���������closely fits into the Mix art's views on  the matter.  ?he  port ion of   the  ���������f. he Examiner would   have,  men! pay. represent,  if   the  been   correctly    informed.  .Arc the Examiner's readers  bills which  1 he gcivcrn-  MiNEn lias  provisions,  l c>. suppose  that those; who ran the boarding house  in connection with the work were maintaining a poorhouse, or that the men  were cinched up to the full extent for  their hoard, and that the house liiau-  ���������t\gers neglected lo .settle, their   provision  AN,OUTSIDE OPINION.  At the present time, when the attempt-  is about to be made to force the people  to decide for or against the house of  lords, it is interesting' to know what  opinion an intelligent outside observer  would form of this body. S. W. Snial-  j ley. the London correspondent of the  New York Tribune, has given his ptipor  an opinion which should carry weight,  as he is in a position to observe the  workings of t his institution, and form  an idea as to its desirability quite as  valuable as might be expected from an  outside source.    He says:  "Jt  is  not  often   that   the  House    of  Peers is called upon seriously to  debate  any   measure   of   leading   importance.-  Whenever this     necessity    arises-   the  country is  treated  to a  spectacle very  different from what   is  usually  seen   in  the lower chamber.     The latter is a popular body, influenced by the ever-changing  fancies   and   necessities   of   public  | opinion, aud though much of its labor is  'devoted to answering   legitimate -popular demands, there   is  running through  all its work the indelible stain   of  parts7,  warfare.  [.n the "Lords it is not so. The Peers  have not to answer to any constituents,  and herein lies the chief recommendation of the hereditary system. Whenever a big legislative proposal conies  up before the Lords, though we may  rokon upon a, distinct bias in favor of  the interests of property, it is always a  matter of certainty that, the discussion  will he of a higher class than is ever  aiVorde.d by the lower chamber. In the.  latter one man, Air. Gladstone, stands  head and shoulders above every other.  Mv. Chamberiain and Mr. Balfour- are  fine debaters, but every other- name lags  far-behind.    In the House of Lords there  formerly owned by E. E. Coy, has  found its way into the courts in connection with a mortgage held by E. O. Kil-  bourne of Seattle. It is said that Ivil-  bourne held a mortgage on the interest  for $5,000, which interest Coy afterward  transferred to a purchaser named King  for- $16,000. Kilbourneis now said to be  seeking satisfaction of the mortgage  through the courts.  BRITISH COLUMBIA   IRON  WORKS  ISA\K9N������ P������������"SKS.

THE KASLO WAGON ROAD.  To the Editor:���������The Examiner of  .hist week suggests that the government  should pay certain sums alleged to he  -due upon the const ruction on the above  road, and .selects certain lirms for reimbursement, ignoring completely any  claims of ihecont.i actors who it .tisserls  lost their ail, adding "that it is perfectly  just." It may lie, but it snill's of Bible  justice; the taking from him that hat It  not. to give to him that hath. c  Messrs. Carney and Jianett, if we are  rightly informed, supplied the boarding  house proprietors, \vm> doubtless made  n profit out.of it, for it is not anywhere  stated that the workmen were not-paid,  and the amounts of their board bills  were deduct ed from their pay. if  Messrs. Carney and Barrett are to lie  paid it should be by i tie hoarding house  ���������proprietors, not by the government.  Tlie. motive for the uuikling of the  road in the tirsi instance as proposed by  the Kaslo delegation who last winter,  in Victoria solicited and received governmental aid, I hough not to the extent  asked for, was to secure for Kaslo the  whole of the fcjlocan trade and ore, and  thus deprive New Denver of the adven-  tage.s to which she was entitled as the  natural outlet and center of that section.  Had the government been   capable--of  are a, dozen spe  not comparable  who   are   in   all  iker*, who are, perhaps,  with Mr. Gladstone, but  1 respi-ets   the   equa.l,    in  some lire superior, of either Mr. Chamberlain ov Mv. Balfour.  The high quality of :hc> Lords' debating power has been once more illustrated  in this wick's discussions. Nothing has-  been finer in oratorical, dialectical display tiuui the speeches of jhe Duke of  Devonshire, the Duke of Argyll, Lord  Selhoi ne, Lord Rosebery and Lord Salisbury. It was unfortunate for the gov-  crnrnent party that for. ev^vy one who  could support the-- Home ��������� Rule bill the  Opposition had three speakers against  it, nor can it-be denied that the "weight  of argument, is entirely on the side of  the Opposition.  .Referring to the attempt to create a,  popular outcry agaiust the House of  Lords, Mr. Smalley very pertinently  remarks that the verdict'of the Lords is  treated by the newspapers according to  their party colors, but no-one can deny  the high quality of their debate, .'their  full knowledge of details,' and; the probable consequences to (his ill-fated measure. Il is probable that any effort to  raise the cry, 'down with the Upper  Chamber,' will pi ove a miserable failure.  4;AB'������STAB; ..<siSS' itsiUl-.niti,  Sir DONALD A. SMITH,...  Flon. GEO: A.

The road, if the account given lo us  from time to time be correct, from its  elevated position on the 'north, is partial in its benefits, being valueless for  ores discharged from the. mountains on  the south side of the Kaslo stream, and  a road to he of universal avail should he  taken clown the center of the valley.  Should the railroad not be built, the  government doubtless w ill be asked to  construct a road of general usefulness  as indicated above. To do this, and  purchase in addition the present detective one, would be to tax to its utmost  the liberality of the legislature, and lo  absorb the whole of the  appropriations.

C., SATURDAY,: ^SEPTEMBER 23,  1893.  A BEOKEF LEDGE  "Turns them, to shape, and  gives   to  airy  nothing a'local habitation arid a name.���������Shake's.  "Westward   the   course    of   empires  takes its way " is a remark  now  somewhat worn, originally made by one who  had noticed that lhe  inarch of civilization   has   for   centuries    been   steadily,  westward.     Cradeled somewhere in the  vast steppes and, mountain fastnesses of  southwestern Asia, the human race has  spiead out over the  earth.    To the east  it ran across the stfeppesof Tartary, and  along the fertile  plains and river bottoms of China.     With every  environment favorable, they grew in  numbers,  and civilization  waxed strong as  compared with  other tribes  of ..the-earth,  and then stagnated and has so remained  through the ages.   It was moving in the  wrong direction.    Westward -wandered  others and  builded empires.    Empires  that flourished, aud   grew  strong���������-arid  died.  , The remnants of the old decaying  nation   wandering   again; further west,  and. building anew*  It  was;,, quite in keeping with this obvious destiny that the  eastern shores of  America  should have received the first  pioneers of advancing civilization .who  have multiplied until now their children  look   across   the   broad   Pacific  to the  cradle of the race.   This progress, slow  at first  has gathered  momentum  each  successive    year.      From  the   crowded  centeres of the east com** those in whom  the old nomadic  spirit, that  sent  their  forefathers across the wildernesses  and  uncharted   oceans,   breaks   out    anew.  Men who feel strong  the  instinct  that  demands more air,  inore elbow room,  and   the\   smite  again   the   wilderness,  and "the desert blossoms like the rose."  saying so, and if he is  not he will talk  about anything from the prospects of  lead reaching $4  this   winter,   to   the  latest venture in the  church   building  line.    This  same ready frankness is carried into every department of his business..   He is generally "the old man" to  his   employes, and  hardly ever- thinks  or feels himself above them in any  way  because  he "pays and they receive.    In  the rapid  tips and downs of a town like  this we are speaking of, their positions  may be reversed within a yearV   Hardly  any of them came to him with any other  recommendation than a general appearance of being square and willing, and he  trusts them with a careless faith not to  be  understood' by, a  believer   in   "the  total depravity "of the race, which he is  riot.    Sturdy iu ways ever', he gives and  takes and often  staggers  under blows,  keeps  his  feet and  comes up smiling,  when   the average eastern   man  under  similiar circumstances would have gone  to the wall. "   ;  <S  I  was   thinking  of  all  this one  day  while   floating   down     the     Columbia,  catching the smell of smoke  from  railroad clearings,   and  getting  here   and  there a glimpse of a camp   through   the  clearings.     The  steamer made toward  the bank  for wood.    "Do   they follow  fishing here on an   extensive scale so far  up the river?" I asked, pointing to a row  of stakes out in   the'water, that looked  as if they  might   be  designed  to hold  nets.     "Yes,"   replied   the,  captain   to  whom my remark was addressed. "They  fish���������those  are  the  corner*  stakes of a  townsite."  Now that  our townsite has become a  town,   and the  business   man  has  just  nailed up his new sign, often   the  work  of; his own hand, may be  expected another interesting factor  in   the, sum of  western life���������the frontier    clergyman.  That he is where he is would  be to most  men sufficient evidence of his  sincerity.  A bed of roses is scarcely his lot, a pine  plank is thankfully received, sometimes.  Toiling, often like a laboring man, for a  wage that would  offend   a navvy,   no  man with common sense can consistently ,say he  is working    for the  money  there is or  might  be  in it.    Men who  have broken away from the restraints  of civilization, often  too  broad-riiiuded  for the petty squabbling dogmas of the  older centres; men who  care little for  the here, and less for the hereafter; men  who have slipped   from   under   the  old  burdens and are trying  to escape from  themselves; men with the good and  bad  ill on the surface and caring little how  either shows to the world; grim congregations of wild and unshorn sheep, these  pioneer shepherds    gather   sometimes.

A.  JOWETT  Auctioneer and Commission Agent.  representing  And so I came in contact with one of  the  ways of  the wes't is builded up.   I  discovered that if the total population of  the Kootenays  was  divided up, and an  equal number given to each townsite in  existence or projected, the census return  would show an average   of  about 61.56.  "Centres of regions of  unparalled  richness, the only outlet, the  receiving and  distributing point of what is soon to become the most thickly populated portion  of the country," abound to an extent at  once bewildering to the enquiring mind,  and monumental  regarding  the enterprise of ^the   "promoters."    The  omnipresent    western   townsite   boomer   is  refreshing in his  disregard for the topographical nature of his chosen  spot.    A  favorite Ashing   ground,   provided  the  water is not too deep, a section of  the  unbroken forest, through which a squirrel would labor with difficulty, or time-  riven     crags,    dangerous    and    rough  enough  to .daunt  the heart of a Swiss  mountaineer, are  equally  liable  to  fall  victims to his choice.    In  this region he  only draws  the line at level land.   On  the handsome lithographed maps which  anon will adorn his coast office, they all  look alike, and the centre of  the "city "  is always nearest the unsold lots.  aged, it is no wonder that   the "call " is  one not frequently sought.    Rev. T. H.  Rogers, one of the pioneer .clergymen of  this  section,   an   earnest ^worker   in  a  stony vineyard, had a wistful look in his  eye  when  he  told  a little story of the  student days.    In  the university, what  had to be endured in the west was fairly  well known.      Often a  request would  come for some one about to graduate to  be s^nt west.   The. students would be  approached and asked if they would go.  A promise to make the matter a subject  of prayer   to   ascertain    whether   the  Lord    called    them,    so    many    times  brought the reply���������"They  did not feel  that they had a "call" in that direction.

When asked to contribute to the Kaslo-Slocan wagon road  he replied " I have no money but I have  two hands," and the next day he was out  with the gang handling the pick and  shovel. His flock have not forgotten it.  With the names of these two may be  coupled those of Rev. J. Turner, and  Rev. Father Berdard. Known and respected, even by those who refuse to  listen to them, these men have worked  hard, lived hard, takeu the knocks with  the remainder, aud yet, work on.

SALE OF LOTS  IN   THK  Now and   then  one of these "cities,"  often   to   the   surprise   of   the original  owner, does  really   become  a "centre,"  and   grows  apace.       Then   comes   the  western   town   with   its, to   the   eastern  mind, many peculiarities.   Not the least  of these  is  the  western  business man.  Catering  to  a peculiar trade, he grows  in time to fall in line  with   its   peculiarities.    Generally he may be found ambitious    to    keep  a stock   ranging from  stockings to  steam   engines.    He  turns  from   "grub-staking"  a   prospector  to  discuss his  latest "addition," or   rushes  off a.  car-load   of   provisions,   to some  branch   establishment,   and  then  shuts  up the store so that all hands  can witness the race between the town favorite  and  some  outside horse.
