At New York, on the 8th, bar silver was quoted at 973c  and lead at,$4.55. .      ,  W. C. McLean expects to have the contract for grading  Stanley and Vernon streets furnished in 3 weeks. He also  has most of the material for the "Vernon street bridge on  the ground.'      , - '!  Hi J. Edson, late proprietor of the Merchants, has left-  Nelson, mourned by a number of creditors. He is supposed  to have gone to Idaho; but not to Wallace, the town from  whence he came to Nelson.  The Dandy Mining Company, by its manager,  A.  M.  Esler, was the first subscriber to pay for one of the telephone company's instruments, and Angus Melntyre the  :first;man to pay for a message over the company's lines.  Articles incorporating the Windermere Mining Company  were filed at the auditor's office at Spokane recently. The  object of the company is to develop mining claims in British Columbia. The incorporators are George Pike, Glaus  Pahl, Charles G. Schrimpf, Charles Uhdeh, and Adolph  Hunter. The capital stock is $500,000, divided into 5000  shares at $100 per share.  Mr. Fitzstubbs is in Trail Creek district inspecting its  trails with a view of improving them. R. Kirk wood will  likely be employed as foreman.  Dr. Brown, the dentist, will remain in Nelson till Friday.  Those needing his services should note the date.  A Rustling Steamboat' Agent.  F. G. Christie, general agent  of the company  that owns the steamers Lytton and Nelson, was  at kelson today interviewing our business men  and urging thorn  t(> hurry  through '.-orders for  winter goods.   0He claims that  the boats of^his  line will be able to run  between Revelstoke and  Robson until November 1st, and much later between Robson and Little Dalles. He was'somewhat surprised when he found that our merchants would yet require over half a'million  pounds of goods to carry them through until  navigation opened in the spring. The Nelson  will probably be pulled off the Bonner's Ferry  route for a while, there being no business to  justify her running. She may be put on later  in the season, if goods are shipped that way in  bond. In reference to the complaints of Ains-  worth merchants, that their goods were not delivered by the railway company to the boat on  wliich they wanted them carried, mr. Christie  stated that the captain of the Nelson had positive instructions to receive no freight consigned  to the Galena, as his company did not wish to  interfere with that boat's business.  A   Wagon Koad  Surveyed. /  The tunnel on the Grizzly Bear is undercover  over 70 feet, and superintendent Robertson reports the work making good progress. His company are getting in supplies and otherwise preparing for the long winter that is not far oft' on  Toad mountain at least. This week A. S. Far- j  well completed the survey for a wagon road between the Grizzly ground and and the main road  from Nelson. It was found that the new road  would be 3 miles long and not. a difficult one  to build, the grade being easy. There would be  no rock work and but 2 bridges, the longest  about 60 feet. It is thought that the road would  be open fully a month earlier in the spring than  the one built this summer on the north slope of  the mountain���������the new survey being on the  south slope.   A  B&undrcd-Foot CJray Copper Ledge.  Three weeks ago The Miner reported a strike  being made on the Lardeaux by a party of prospectors from Revelstoke. The report is confirmed by private letters received at Nelson,  The ledge is said to be fully a hundred feet in  width and the4 ore gray copper running high in  silver. It is also reported that the discoverers  want the government to cut a trail to the find,  a distance of 2 or 3 miles.  ELECTKIC     NACIIINKKY     FOMt    TOAD     MOUNTAIN.  While it is asserted that electric mining machinery is in successful operation, the facts do  not. bear out the assertion. Electric plants have  been ordered for several mines, and one or two  practical tests have been made, but, so far, the  results have not been satisfactory. If the practical tests had been satisfactory an electric drill  would today be at work on Toad mountain. A.  M. Esler, manager of the Dandy Mining Company, was in Nelson this week, on his regular  'monthly visit.    Mr. Esler is also manager of a  mine in the Coeur d'Alenes, a country in which0,  ���������;��������� mining operations are carried on with the most-  approved machinery. An electric plant was put  in in one of the mines there, but the drills, while  not failures, did not work satisfactorily. The 0  makers of the plant claim they can remedy the  defect (heating of the drills), but so far have not.  done so, their expert electrician not having put  in an appearance, although 2 months have  elapsed since the trial was made. The difference in the first cost of the electric over the  compressed air drill is not ; much in favor of the  former; but there would be a great saving in  working them, owing to the substitution of  wires for pipes. Mr. Esler yet hopes to have  one on the Dandy before winter sets in. He reports that property looking good, the ore in the  lower tunnel having improved in the last 3 days.  While on the mountain he let a contract: to extend the crosscut 100 feet. That -.tunnel is now  in 96 feet, and when extended the 100 feet, its  face will be pretty close to the ledge. While  the contract price ($11 a foot) is higher than the  work has been costing, the contract will probably result in the work being hastened."  Kecord  Keating.  Letters mailed in Yokohama, Japan, on August19th arrived at Queenstown, Ireland, on  September 8th���������in less than 20 days. The steamship Empress of Japan made the run froin Yokohama to Vancouver in 10 days 13 hours. A train  on the Canadian Pacific fan from Vancouver to  Brock ville, Ontario, 2803 .miles, in 77 hours 20  minutes. From Brock ville the mail bags crossed  the St. Lawrence on a steamer to Morristown,  New York. There the New York Central took  them and made the run to New York city, 353  miles, in 6 hours 58 minutes���������an average of 54  miles an hour. In less than an hour after their  arrival at the Grand Central depot in New York  they were aboard the steamship City of New  York. In the run to Queenstown that steamship broke all previous records, making the distance in 5 days 22 hours and 50 minutes.  A Second  Vein   Encountered.''  The tenor of the notices posted on the Silver  King ground indicates that the owners of that  great property do not care to be troubled with  visitors, no-matter whether they are sightseers  or mining sharps. Even specimens of peacock  copper are' not to be taken from any of the  dumps, a violation of the notice subjecting the  violator to the dire penalties of-the law. The  crosscut from- the bottom of the shaft is again in  ore, said to be high-grade, which makes the  present vein the second encountered in running  the crosscut 50 feet or more. Mr. Hall, one of  the owners reports the mine looking good.  iOttawa Capitalists   Looking for  Interests.  The recent discoveries on the Salmon, to the  southeast of   Nelson,  are  attracting  attention. .,  This week Thomas Watts, who represents Ottawa capital, arrived at Nelson with a view of  taking a look at the lake country, and more particularly the above discoveries, the richness of  the ore being the incentive. A half dozen locations have been made in the new camp by Jack  Buchanan, Mike Landrigan, 0. M. Gething,  William Springer, and R. G.

'.'"'"Perhaps the most mysterious as well as sensa-  ���������;.'. tional duel of 1889, was the killing of the crown  prince Rudolph of Austria by count Franz Clam  Gallas on the 31st day of January.  The duel was  fought   with   pistols in  a little piece of   woods  neai��������� Baden,- at a,bout i o'clock in  the eve 11 ing,  and the crown  prince was mortally wounded at  the first fire.    His seconds were two brothers-in-  law of his antagonist, count Ployos and prince  Ooburgy who   declared   that  Clam   Gallas   was  -wholly  in   tlie wrong- in   the, entertaininent of  long-range suspicions regarding his sister, while  the  count   was attended   bv  prince  Ferdinand  Kiasky and prince Tleiritz.:  The dying man was  at once  taken   to castle Meyeiling, a short dls--  tauce oif, whei/e he expired  before 9 o'clock.    A  dozen roumntie stories have been concocted concerning the taking ..off of Rudolph, in -which assassination,   suicide or, double  suicide   (of   the  'crown' prince; and countess  Clam Gallas), have  been  vvorked- up   into  heroic  chapters.    All of  these! latter  are   untrue,   however.     That   the  countess Clam Gallas took her own life after she  had   been   advised   of  the  death   of  the crown  prince is generally believed throughout Austria.  A ferocious duel was fought with swords at  Piedad,  near" the City of Mexico,  August 4th,  1891,  by  colonel Francisco Nevoa  and  Manuel  Blanco of the army.    The former had general  Flores and colonel Rodrigo Valdes for seconds,  and  Blanco   was   attended   by   don   Francisco  Romero, a  famous  duelist  and   a  government  officer, and don  Antonio  "Vovar, a deputy and  the author of   the Mexican dueling code.    The  "meeting..took  place early in  the /morning, and  although   president Diaz attempted to check it,  there were 10 rounds or assaults.    Blanco  was  desperately wounded   in   the   wrist,   arm,   and  throat,   and; at   last   was   laid out   by a thrust  through the liver.    Nevoa was slightly wounded  4: times.; .''''.   ,:    '���������'.' .',.'",-  May 9th, 1888, James Milbank, an Englishman,  and count von Be'irlan- a German, quarreled in  Paris over a fair American -.girl.; named Brown,  and in the duel which followed the count was  killed at the first tire. Baron-, 'von Beulan, a  brothei' of the deceased, met Milbank,.July 5th,  1891, in a restaura.ut on the boulevard des Ital-  iens and publicly insulted him. This led to  another duel, and Milbank and the baron met in  the Bois de Boulogne at daylight, on the 7th,  and at the first fire the latter fell dead.  A desperate duel was fought one day in August, 1886, by 2 girls, about 18 years of age���������sen-  orit'as Espinosa and Moreno, employed at the  tobacco..-factory- in Seville���������that 'workshop' in  front of which the. first act of the opera ''Carmen" is supposed to eventuate. Their seconds  were men, who furnished each girl with a'dirk,  after'.w'hich they were blindfolded and placed in  an unlighted room for half an 'hour and commanded to "fight!" Then the room was locked  and the seconds joined the other employees at  dinner, after which they opened the doors and  found both girls alive, but mortally, wounded.  One of the combatants was cut in ,27 different  places and was bleeding to death, while the  other received severe wounds in 10, and fatal  ones in 2 places. The 2 seconds attempted to escape, but.were arrested and sent to prison for 6  months. The girls never spoke after the d(>or  was opened, but one of them lived in great agony  for several hours.  Near Madrid, December 10th, 1890, Captains  Romero and Murillo fought with sabres, and  both were frightfully injured and maimed for  life. Subsequently the principals and their seconds (all officers) were -arrested, and the'.former  were dismissed from the army and the latter  fined. One of the latter, after paying his fine,  challenged the magistrate who fined him, who  accepted and received 3 wounds. He again fined  the officer, and was again challenged and fought,  with pistols, killing the officer at first shot.  Quite as good a little, story is that in which,  at an aristocratic party in Vienna, a lady dropped a bouquet -and a gentleman following in a  waltz kicked it to one side so that it would  not be stepped upon, and was challenged and  wounded by the escortof the lady who dropped  the flowTers, and was afterward nursed by and  married to the lacly herself. This is an actual  fact.  But more humorous than the above is the following:    July 7th, 1890, two acrobats belonging  to a traveling circus outside of Paris fought a  duel in the; ring immediately after the night  performance. They fired at each other once, at  25 paces, with revolvers, with no effect. Then  .; their seconds declared that satisfaction was complete, and nearly all the spectators quitted the  arena Two trained monkeys, however, picked  up the weapons and blazed away at each other,  andJioth fell dead.  In  Russian Poland lately a lady became her  own  champion by fighting a duel with a man  , who had spoken disrespectfully to her, although  he had previously offered her "his hand and had  been  refused.    Stung by her.--.rejection, he persisted  iii  maligning her,   until she* resolved   to  put a stop to it by fighting him.    Gentlemen by ..;'  the score offered to "horsevyhip the calumniator,  ;but she declined to permit them.    She sent a  male  friend  with   a challenge,   which   was accepted,, and re vol vers were named as the weapons,   distance  25 paces;    The belligerents  met  "arid exchanged  one shot, and then the' matter  was   settled    by    the    seconds,   although    the  lady  could   hardly   be   restrained   from   firing  again.      But   the   cuhninator  apologized   fully,  praised  her   gallantry,   confessed   himself   her  .'slave, .���������and..promised never again to speak slight-  ingly of a woman, be she good or bad.  July:19th, 1889, near the avenue St. Germain,  at Puteaux, France, uidlles. Zelle Picot arid Marie  Voisin met with swords and had a fierce encounter, which'was 'terminated by mdlle. Picot,  ..after' being hard pressed, falling into a well,  which gave the commissary "of police an opportunity of. lodging a double complaint ��������� one  against the young woman for '..dueling and  another against the; proprietor of the ground for  not maintaining' a. guard around the mouth of  the well.  [The above"may be" true as regards all the  duels except the first. If is now a generally accepted fact that the crown prince of Austria  was not killed in a duel, but killed by his own  hand. The San Francisco Examiner and the  London Times, of the 3rd instant, both publish  full particulars of the scandal and/tragedy that  resulted in the death of the prince and his young  mistress,''baroness Marie de Vetsera. It is even  hinted that the cause of the double suicide was  the fact t baton the day before, the tragedy the  prince had a long and stormy interview withhis  .father, in-which the latter implored his son to  break off at once the connection with his mistress on the ground of tin-1 doubt that existed as  to the paternity of the girl, her mother being  the heroine of numerous. Masons.and' adventures  and her- name'being for years associated with  that of the emperor-himself. When found the  crown prince was lying on a bed with his skull  shattered by a bullet, and the girl crouched in  her night dress on the floor in.one-corner of the  room with a bullet through her head.���������Editor  Miner.]  Will contract for the erection of .stores, hotels, dwellings  bridges, etc., and guarantee work finished on time.  s:e^so:dt:e]':d  lttzmliibieir,  always on hand for store fittings, desks, tables, etc.  Undertaking attended to.

It is quite out of fashion to struggle and say:  "Oh, now, you stop!" when you are going to be  kissed, writes Clara Belle. Presumably, if you  don't intend to allow yourself to be kissed, your  manner will not. suggest the notion of kissing  you to the man. Few men will try to kiss a girl  unless there is a chance for success. Besides  struggling musses your hair and crumples your  laces and breaks the flowers you wear, and  leaves any number of traces by which girls can  tell just what has happened. It's much prettier  to just pretend the last minute that you don't  know what is going to happen. In this case you  never lose the kiss, as you may if you do the  "struggle" act, and it is much more satisfactory  than a kiss after a struggle or during astruggle.  You can be awfully "surprised" and gasp "Oh!  ���������how���������how dare you," and clasp you hands  over your face and say "Go away" when he tries  to soothe you, and "I will never speak to you  again," and "I hate you," and all that. It is just  as effective as before the kiss, and just as pretty  and all that, and it does not muss your hair so  much. The proud and haughty method is very  satisfactory if you choose the right man. Yoii  should let the "cold moon" shine full upon your  face, and with your lips "curling scornfully,"  you say: "You would not dare," and look him  steadily and scornfully in the eye. You must be  sure to choose a man who will not be scared to  death at this and wish himself at home. The  right sort of a man will grab you instantly.  Then you can do the "contrast" act, which is  very effective, turn meek and mild and "half  timid" or do the tragedy queen business and  leave the gentle act for later. Now all men don't  go in for "taming" girls, and all men don't go  in for catching the coquette, and all don't fancy  teaching and encouraging shy girls. The trouble  with most shy girls is they adopt their method  and stick to it right through. You should  always change your method with your man.  A Thousand Miles on  Horseback.  A man named Brown, who  hails from u^ar  Portland, Oregon, drove 100 head of horses all  the way from Oregon to the Hagwilghet valley,  near the headwaters of the Skeena river. The  animals were sold to the Indians and brought  high prices. He was accompanied by his wife,  who rode the whole distance (over a thousand  miles of wild country) on horseback. Brown reports having passed through some beautiful valleys, suitable for farming and stock raising. He  left Oregon early in May and reached Hagwilghet valley in July.  Acted Wisely in Changing Her   Name.  A lady in St. Catherines, Ontario, whose relatives in England reside near those of the family  of Birchall, who was executed in Woodstock  last fall for the murder of Ben well, has received  a letter in which it is stated that mrs. Birchall  was married there within 6 weeks after her arrival home from Canada.  . F. Teetzel & Co.  DEALERS  IN  OIHIIEIMIIO^-I^S-,  PATENT MEDICINES,  TOILET ARTICLES,  ETC.

EJ>BTOBMAL    KKHIAKKS.  It cannot be^ain'sayed that  the recent census  ��������� I' ' "���������������������������.. ' : ..    ������������������ "     ���������  of Canada was disappointing, and especially so  to   the   native-born .Canadians���������a   people   that  cannot;   be  cliarged   with lack   of   self-reliance,  whatever their other shortcomings.     They can-'  not understand  why it is that thousands of im-  inigi-ants land on  our shores every-year and so  few of. them  remain  to become identified  with  the,country; thev cannot understand why thous-  and's of young Canadians, emigrate to the United  States as soon as they reach their .majority-, and  why so few of these young emigrants return dissatisfied with  the republic and its institutions.  Some  attribute   it   to   one   cause  and  some   to  another.     Some  attach  all   the   blame   to   the  National  Policy, claiming that  it is paralyzing  .and  pauperizing the country; yet they cannot  explain why it is that the. people who leave Canada emigrate to a country where the protective  systern isvsti'()ngly eiifrenched.������ Some attach the  blame to the rigorous climate; yet the climate  of Canada is equally as salubrious as that of the  states and territories of the republic whose populations   are   largely   made  up  of   Canadians.'  ���������While the above-mentioned   causes   may   have  some   effect,   yet   their influence   is   certainly  small.    In  the older provinces, as in  the older  New England states,  the young  men  long  for  the opportunity   to   get   away   from   irksome  duties or labors, for which they receive small  compensation.    This longing, coupled with  the  desire to see. the world, takes them to the western  states; states whose areas are large and whose  natural resources are of grea.t variety, and whose  people, speaking the same language, are not en-  tirelv st rangers to them. These together with the  fact that wages are generally 25 per cent higher  in  the United States  than in  Canada,  are the  main reasons why  our population  has not increased as rapidly as it should.    As it is with the  native-born  Canadians, so it is with the immiT  grants   who  land .on   our   shores.     Tliey   soon  learn that  the eldorado they hoped to find by  crossing   the  Atlantic   is farther on, and they  go farther on; but always in the same direction  ���������to the south.    Then, in regard to immigrants,  it is difficult to determine the final destination  of those who land at Canadian ports, thousands  of them merely  being en transit to the United  States.    Instead of crediting Canada with S50,-  000   immigrants  in   the last  10  years,   one-half  that number would be nearer the total of those  who   landed  intending  to   make   Canada  their  home.     Then,   again,   may  not   the  system   of  government prevailing   in Canada  have  something to do with  the  emigration of the native-  born   element?   The average  young man likes  to  take  part in governmental affairs;  likes to  vote, to hold office, and be a power in the land.  In   Canada he  can vote  once in  a while for a  member of parliament or a member of the local  legislature or a member of a town or township  council; but he has no voice in the selection of  the thousand arid one executive officials. But  once in the United States and naturalized, he  can vote early and often, hold office, and wield  an influence that often is a power in the state of  his adoption. Low wages, a narrow home restraint, and political restriction have more to do  with the smallness of the increase of our population than the National Policy and the rigorous  .climate. ���������'\'v: '     ..������������������������������������. : ������������������        ,.'''���������'���������'  The latest reports 'from Ottawa are that Lan-  gevin, the boodling  minister of public works,  has asked that his resignation  be accepted.    Of  course it will be accepted,  with profuse regrets,  by premier Abbott.    Thus are  the people educated   to  condone  official   dishonesty.    If inr.  Langevin had been suspended from office during  the investigation  of tlie charges made against  him,' and. promptly  arrested   as   soon   as   the  charges were'..substantiated, the people would in  time belie ve that  t he laws are in tended for the  ���������official thief as well as for .the't;private citizen  who filches property that does not belong to him.  The "Vancouver World, in announcing the fact  that the Canadian Pacific steamship Empress of  Japan lowered her former record in crossing the  Pacific ocean, says the "noble vessel" steamed  through the narrows at Vancouver at the rate  of about 15'knots an hour. The "noble vessel"  made that record only to land on our shores 27  saloon passengers, 16 second-class passengers,  and 237 Chinese in the, steerage. A "noble" enterprise indeed���������peopling our province with  heathen Chinese. ___  Governor Colcord of Nevada warns people  against rushing to the newly-boomed Pine Nut  mining district in his state. To begin with, the  ground'in the vicinity of the original discoveries  has all been staked out, and there is nothing yet  to prove that there is gold under these locations.  There are still plenty of .-'men to rush to new diggings on small provocation. The Pine Nut district is not so remote-as to make its prospecting  a great under-taking, and hopeful miners may  not starve there, but many may leave places  where they are doing fairly well on a wild goose  chase.  .

The Pomiiiioia   Voters'  List.  To the Editor of The Miner: The Karri-  loops Sentinel reports an interview with mr.  justice Walketn anent the Dominion voters'list.  The judge intimates that he has received very  little assistance in the work of making up the  list. Lest those who have requested me to send  their names should think that I have neglected  to do so, I wish to say through The Miner that  I have sent to the judge all the names of which  X could get track as heing eligible. I have no  doubt that many are yet overlooked. I understood the judge to say, that before finally closing the list he would hold a court of revision in  Nelson, and that he would add the names of belated applicants; also that foreigners desiring  naturalization could be accommodated at the  same time. The elevation of the member for our  district to the gubernatorial chair* or to the cabinet, or the dissolution of parliament���������all of  which are probabilities���������would bring on an election in the district. In which event (unless, of  course, the election should be run, as it was last  winter, by the returning officer alone) any public-spirited citizen would regard the right to vote  as better than $'10 in his pocket. Notice of the  date of the session of the court of final revision  will, I suppose, be given through all the local  papers. G. O. Buchanan.  Nelson, September 10th.  Fine Potatoes.  The Miner has all along contended that there  are many small areas of land in the lake country  on which vegetables could be grown, and its  contentions are frequently backed up by the  actual vegetables. G. H. Andrews, who is  engaged    in   prospecting    and   doing    assess  ment work on claims near Nelson, puts in his  spare time gardening. This spring he planted a  small patch of ground, near the railway depot,  in potatoes. The result of his labor is as fine a  lot of Early Roses as was ever exhibited in any  country, many of them weighing over a pound,  and one fine specimen weighing 26 ounces.  B  NOTARY PUBLIC.

The Miner maintains that the silver question  is of as much importance to the people of British  Columbia and Canada as it is to the people of  the United States. It therefore quotes the following from the Salt Lake Tribune, which should  be read with interest:  "A year ago congress made a compromise: and  performed just half its duty, by passing a law  that the governinent should buy or use silver to  the  amount of $4,500,000 per month.    At that  time silver was worth 97 cents; three weeks later  it was worth $1.21 and strangely enough wheat  in  Chicago and butter and all  the products of  the plantation   and the,farm  advanced in  the  same  ratio, and  so   vital   was  the influence at  work that even the Bibles in far off India advanced in the same ratio.    Was anyone ruined  by that advance?    Was the financial fabric of  the country "shaken to its very foundations" by  it?   The golclites, fearing the inevitable, made  frantic efforts.    They got in three and one-half  million  ounces  from   Europe  and  ten   million  ounces from Mexico and stopped the advance.  If they had not hurried, in two weeks more silver would have been on a parity with gold in  London, New York, and the world around, and  the  two   metals  would   have   been   equalized.  Would that have everlastingly smashed things?  The whole cry is but an appeal to the ignorant  prejudices of men.  The wisest financiers declare  that there is not gold enough in the world to  make  a   foundation  from    which   the trade  of  the  world  must   be   measured  and   reckoned;  that     there     must    be    either    an     increase  in    the   money   or   there    must    be   such   a  slowing   down   as   will   cause   universal   panic  ���������and. infinite loss.    There is nothing else to use  except silver, and  the only thing needed in addition to what we have is that silver shall not be  kept   the  vassal   of gold;   that  the restrictions  upon silver shall he removed, until when a man  contracts a debt payable in specie it shall be understood that silver is just as good   money and  just as honest money to pay that debt in as'gdld.  And  with  that done,   the  inflation  which   has  been   going  on   for  15   years  will  be   removed.  Gold  will  be-worth  relatively Jess, when  measured by  property, and   now the  work   of men  which results in a loss will result in a little gain.  When  that shall be done, the  money which is  now hoarded in the cities will be seeking investment in the country.    Capitalists will no longer  loan to cities and to the government money at 2  or 3 pet'cent per annum, because in legitimate  business they can  make a good  deal more than  that; and the  congestion,  the stagnation, and  the unrest which fills every business man's mind  with  apprehension   now will   be removed, and  the metropolitan press of the east will be the  stillest set of newspapers on the money question  that anybody ever saw.

V  Q.���������Has it a good constitution ? A.��������� Theoretically it has.  Q.���������Why theoretically? A.��������� Because practically it has had a severe strain, which is always  bad for a constitution.  Q.���������What is the nature of this shock? A.���������  Well, its head has been run against a "cross-  wall."  Q.���������Anything else? A.���������Yes: it has had a  terrible "dredging," and been nearly pumped  dry in one or two "graving docks."  Q.���������Is that all? A.���������No; it has been terribly  worried by "Jack" Arnold's "bronze dogs" and  in other ways it has been dreadfully abused.  Q.���������How has all this happened? A.���������The men  in charge of the constitution have been more  anxious for place and pelf than principle.  Q.���������Cannot these men be changed? A.���������Yes:  if the people choose to do so.  Q.���������Do they not?    A.���������They have not so far1.  Q.���������Did they know what was being done? A.  ���������They must have had a shrewd suspicion.  Q.���������Why, then, did they not turn the rascals  out? A.���������Because the men cunningly gave many  of them "pap" and "hoodie" and they consented  that they should stay.  Q.���������Did not these men know that evil was being done? A.���������Yes; but they would rather"  wreck the constitution than hurt the party.  Cor. Baker and Ward Sts.  NELSON, B. C.
