London, April 7th.���������A seusation was  created on the stock-exchange today by  a revelation that the Londonderry gold  mine in Australia has petered out. . The  mine was boomed by experts as containing an inexhaustible mass of surface  gold, and* financed through England by  Col. North, Lord Fiugal and other reputable meu in -S3 shares. Shares,  quoted 11 -week"ago tit thirty-five shillings  per share, were not saleable yesterday at  any price. For several days prior heavy  "safes of these shares mystified the more  credulous of the shareholders, but the  reason for this activity 011 the part of  the sellers was not known until the  directors chose to make public a tele-  ogram dated Coolgardie, April 1, anuouuc  ing that nothing was left of the ore, after  the surface had beeu scraped. This disclosure has thrown a cloud over the  whole Coolgardie gold field. The Londonderry mine is now described by other  experts as a series of reefs of gold blown  to the surface, the substance under being  quartz absolutely barren of the precious  metal. ' A great many investors iu lho.  shares have been ruiued by the collapse  Col. North will meet the suspicious of  dishonesty on his -part by ottering to  deposit the cash and shares forming h _  portion of the purchase of the rniue in  the hands of trustees for the benefit of  the shareholders. The news of - the collapse of the mine created a panic in the  mining market yesterday, but today  there was a partial recovery.'  DEATH OF A PIONEER.  . Anthony M. Cannon, sixty years old, of  Spokaue Falls, a guest at the Sturleveut  honse, was found dead iu his room at the  hotel. -     .  Anthony McHugh Cannon was one of  the prominent figures iu the development  of the Pacific Coast. He was born on a  farm at Mammoth, Ills., and when 17  years old went.to Chicago where he became engaged 111 the grain business .and  afterwards became a member of the board  of trade. He then went to Kansas aDd  engaged in the milling business. In 18G7  he crossed the plains with an ox' team,  and when the gold fever broke. out he  went to the White Pine region and became a miner.   Afterwards he opened a  ��������� hotel in Los Angeles, California, and  after remaining iu that business a few  years he went to Portland, Oregon.  Twelve years ago he went to Spokane  "Falls, of which he was me of the Srst  settlers, beiug known ;,., ihe father of  Spokane Falls.

About 70 men are now employed at  the Silver King.. A" large body of very-  high grade ore, goiug some 800 ounce's'  to the ton has beeu discovered aud shipments of this will take place at once.  A letter has been received by the com-  meieial manager of the Hall Mines from  tho London.office announcing that the  specifications for the tramway from the  mine to the hike have been forwarded by  parcel post. The wisdom of the Canadian  Post Ollice authorities sends all our  parcels down to Victoria and back, or at  auy rate to thc coast, a needless journey  of about a thousand miles. The specifications have uot yet arrived. It is understood that when they do tenders will at  once be called for, lo be in by the 20th  May and that they will require the whole  work to be finished within three months  from that date.  BOSSLAND.  The work of cutting down the bluff  tit the west end of Columbia Avenue is  now' in progress. Grading will be  commenced next week.  The grading gang of the Red Mountain Hail road is now at work within  half a mile of I he town. Work is also  in progress between Northport and  the boundary and there is every prospect of the iron horse being seen in  Rossland before the summer is past,  A large sum of money has been subscribed by the mine owners to..be expended in repai ting the roads, which  at present are so deep as. to reudei  Ira tlie. extremely difficult.  The sale of town lots lias been brisk  during the past week. Scarcely a lot  on Columbia Avenue remains  unsold.  >��������� . Tho lied Mountain railroad company  have succeeded in obtaining tbe Crown  Grant to their rese'i ve. lt is issued  subject to surface rights existing prior  to August, 1S92.  Yesterday 'nineteen i'om--horse- wagons, all heavily loaded, arrived from  Northport. The customs' receipts for  the day exceeded .*t)G00. People are  crowding in.from all pails of the  States, even California, and Nevada  being represented. The town presents  a busy scene and all the hotels are  crowded, each bed being made to accommodate two persons.  . Mr. W. J. Twentyman has taken a  contract to sink "a 100 foot shaft ou the  Gertrude.    Tlie price is $20 per foot.  The Great Western Mining Co. has  been incorporated under the laws of  the State of..AVa������hing|.on. Thecapital  stock is one million dollars. The shaft  is now thirty feet deep and the ore is  improving.  . It is thought that'l'ajsecond vein has  been discovered on the.Monita. ^_Men  are now at work prospecting the  giound.  Notwithstanding the sneers of the  Rossland-Miner it is a fact, that nickel  exists in small quantities in the neighbourhood of Rossland, your correspondent found nickel present in three  separate samples of ore tested by' him  last winter. What is "inconceivable"  to the Rossland Miner may easily be  plain to other people.  Two dynamo machines arrived this  week, one for the LeRoi mine and the  other for the Nelson Sawmill Co.  The Josie mine is steadily improving  both in quantity and quality. More  than 2.') tous are "now on the dump  awaiting shipment. '  The new machinery at the O. K. will  be ready for work this week. A  beautiful specimen was taken out last  week, it is about I he size of a nail-keg  and about one-sixth is pure gold. The  I. X. L. lessors are iu pay lock again.  McJ_night proposes to put an extra  shift to work in a tew days.  Messieurs W. M. Newton and Gilbert  Rankin are engaged in making a collection of specimens foi-2 the Board of  Trade at Victoria. ���������  Recent operations on the Cliff mine  show'that the ore increases rapidly in  value with depth. The Cliff is on the"  same lead as the Monte Cristo.  The new engine and boiler for. Mr. L.  Blue's sawmill arrived on Tuesday*.  Neil Get'nog litis gone to Salmon Rivet  to look after his interests there."  S. M. "Wharton has arrived from Trail  Creek.  Allan McPhce, 11 pioneer of the Slocan,  died very suddenly last week at, Sandon  and was buried tit Ihe Denver cemetery.  He was well known aud liked all through  the Slociin couutry aud he will be much  missed. Last summer he prospected  some distance np Four-mile Creek nnd he  staked some claims in the dry ore bell  which are said to be very promising.  L.

Work has been stopped on  the Alpha,  but the men expect to resume in a  few j  days.    Meanwhile ore is  being brought i  down to tbe lake from the mine.

'   The first issue of the Prospector has  appeared.  Ben Finnel has located a claim called  the Golden Rule, which adjoins the King  Solomon, half a mile from Town. These  claims have been examined by several  mining experts and pronounced as good  as the famous Trail Creek' mines.  KOOTKNAY B1VJ-R.  A paragraph ��������� in the Vancouver  World (weekly) of 2Sth ult., dealing  wiih the Chinese who worked for the  Reclamation Company, is utterly contrary to facts and misleading. Mr. G.  A. Keefer on being seen about it said :  Wjhile the Chinese were with the  company they had all the work-they  could attend t.o with the exception  pf two months during high water las.l  year, when everything of- necessity was shut down. They put iii .full  time clearing right of way, handling  wood, etc., dining the summer months,,  and had the opportunity given them  to cut cord wood during the winter at  $1 11 cord at the stump, but they're  fused to take advantuge of it, preferring to lay up during the cold weather.  It was during high water last-year  that 1(5 of thorn deserted and went to  the placer ground at Wild Horse in  Upper Kootenay, while those that remained resumed work when the water  wont down. The money due them was  paid to Wing Kee, the contractor ,of  Victoria who supplied them, and it' is  untrue that he went off to China with  the. proceeds of their labor.  Last week t tie,remaining Chinamen'  on the works' expressed a desire to  leave and go to the lake and it was  found, on taking an inventory, that  their store contained over {j������1CD worth-  of rice, dried fish, etc., so that shows  I hat they were pretty well "hooked  up" up here.  '- The company have the two machines  at work and expect to have the first  section leclaimed,by fall. The section  contains between*7,000 and SC.D acres.  In the lower workings, as soon as' the  sloiigh is reached the.y intend turning  round with the Alberta, placing ��������� her  on wheels, and repairing those parts of  the dyke that were damaged by high  floods- last year, at the same time  putting a. couple of feet or^o_jnore_on  to the" dyke and strehghtehitig "gener-"  ally en route.  The floating .ditcher Calgary .will  start in on the cross dyke where the Al-  berta'left off and complete to foothills.

REVIEW,  Just one hundred years.ago Napoleon  Bonaparte was an obscure artillery  officer in France. A year before he  was actually on the vei ge of starvation  and was only saved from casting himself into the sea at Marseilles by the  chance genorosity of a humble acquaintance. But from that moment his star  arose with the utmost rapidity, and  and from the most obscure this wonderful man swiftly floated to the most  magnificent station that has probably  ever been attained by any human being. There are still living some few  individuals who have actually gazed  upon the face of Napoleon, but practically his life and times have become  11 matter of written history. Of late  literary miners have found in. their  researches many ledges of great value  and there has been a "rush" to the  field. In other words the time has  been found on examination to be more  than usually replete with matters of  the greatest interest, from greutalfuii-s  of state lo stirring romances, arid in  consequence the world has been flooded with Napleonic literature. To this  Victorian Sardou, in collaboration  ��������� with Emile Moreau and Edmund Le-  -pelletier, has contributed "Madame  Sans-Gehe." (R. F. Fenno &.Oo., New  York; on sale by Gilbert Stanley.)  This book has been dramatised and llie  theatric version has been the rage in  Paris, London and New York, a great  French actress, Madame R'-jane, having created quite a furore by her impersonation of the title role. .Had we  not known that the book was produced  first we should have imagined that it  was constructed out of the play. Itis  :i series of intensely dramatic episodes  somewhat slimly connected, ft. contains the whole story of Napoleon,  from thc attack on the Tuileries iu  1792 to his marriage with Marie Louise  of Austria in 1810. At lhe opening of  the book Napoleon is the" poverty  stricken scius-lieutenant of artillery  and Catherine Sans-Gene is his was-h-  erwoman.   A scene in which the lively  Parisian^ soubrette takes   home _tbe_  washing to the solitary bedroom of the  supposed phlegmatic young Corsican,  is ... . well Parisian and of a nature  not usually found in the more proper  works of thc English and American  authors.' Chapter .XLVHI, dealing  with The Loves of "Napoleon, is also  one that may not meet with approval  everywhere. With these exceptions  the book is excellent, in spite of its being  a most villanous American translation  of- the original French. Into the  stirring events of the time a story is  interwoven, but it might as well he  omitted. The ��������� main story, itself is so  intensely tragic and so full ofthe highest human interest as to require no  fiirl.hereinbellishinent. It is like some  beii.it iful building up which a frail but  elegant creeper spreads itself out lo  public view. .  NEWS OF THE PROVINCE.

" In the lirst instance this was  settled as was supposed in an amicable  way, Captain Fitzstubbs haying come  up from the Lake,to hear their grievances. The Captain assessed tho.damages at a few dollars and the work  was allowed to proceed. At. .every  garden this"sort of bluff was tried on  with but indifferent success the machine at last getting through to the  Indian's old camping ground about 3  miles below Davies' Ranche. From  the mutterings of the Si washes during  tlie winter it was generally known  that they meant trouble to the'company in the early "spring iind now it  hits come. On Saturday last, an one  of the men Tom Engl ish by name was  unloading cordwo'od a Si wash aimed  a blowuat him with a club. Fortunately it did not reach him, but it had  the "effect of starting the horses off..  They weie speedily stopped and Eng-  lish.'reiurned to defend himself. The  Indians then-threw another club at  him. A bit of a !>crimage ensued  which but for the judgment of the  foreman Barrett in withdrawing his  men might have led to trouble. The  Indians blood was up and the men on  the works .'tie not the "kind of fellows  to stand nonsense. The whites retired  into the dredge while the Indians assembled on the ground in front of it  where the work was to be proceeded  with, andhaving pulled up the stakes  marking it out. stated that the pale  faces would have t.o fjght before they  diil any more work. The attitude of  The Indians was so threatening that  Mr. Geo. Keefer. the engineer of the  company, left at once for Nelson giv  ing instructions for a cessation of  work until he returned.  On Tuesday he came back in the  Nelson accompanied by Capt Fitzstubbs, who brought three special constables with him, and by Mr. Geo.  Alexander. The three special constables were Messrs C. Cregan; T.  Smith und Campbell. The' Indians  somehow got information of the Commissioner's approach, and struck their  lodges, and departed, before his arrival  leaving only one, Nicholas, with his  family encamped on the ground. During Tuesday tne commissioner collected a quantity of evidence from the  men relating to the matter in hand  and also toother Indian molestations  that have taken place from' time to  time. He intends to return to Nelson  by the next boat.  Tbe dredge "Alberta" is engaged in  putting up lhe dyke on that narrow  strip between the river and the foothills (which will when completed close  in the whole of the first section of  nearly _.0 acres) the Indians camping  in the line of the dyke.  GOAT RIVER MINES.  The first strike was made in 1891 when  Wild Louis the Indian piloted Jim Phil-  brick and others to what is uow the  "Alice" mine on Goat Mountain about  Zyi miles from Kootenay River aud in  sight of steamboats going and coming.  There is a ledge of about five feet of concentrating ore, a beautiful steel galena  and assays up to 65 ounces silver and 70  % lead per ton. Of course it is not so  high grade as the stuff in Slocan but  there is quantity here which is a great  consideration. Considerable work. has  been done on the property, a tunnel of  150 feet having been run in on the ledge  ut. a depth of 200 feet and the ledge  cross-cut for another 100 feet. Had not  the price of silver dropped when it did  this would now'have been one. of .the  steady producing mines of Kootenay,  as it is now the owners Capt. Hayward,  Jap King and others have doue nothing  but keep up assessment work until better  prices prevail.  There is a good trail to the property  counecting with the government trail  about oue quarter way up the hill.  The North extensions of the above  are the "Bluebird" and "Mabel" both of  which show very nice ore, mo: e especially *  the Mabel, which has a large ledge of  cube galena (independent of the Alice  ledge) fiom which assays have shown  silver 125 ounces and a large per centage  of lead per ton. The owners of this property have doue over SJ600 of work on  the claim aud would have kept on but  as iu other cases hard times struck them  and they were obliged to go slow. The  cost of transportation of ore from ' these  claims Io navigation- would be so light  tbiit it would-be quife au item in consideration of the properties. The formation is lime aud slate.'.,  ..'he "Ivy" about ono half mile northeast of the Aiiceis a large ledge- with a  good.showing of cube., galena ot very  high quality assaying 125 ounces, silver  and"70 per cent lead per ton. Besides  the galena ledge she has'two paralell  ledges of very fine looking copper ore.  Experts consider this to be one of the  best cia'uis iu the camp.  The "Rocket" contiguous to "Ivy"  is a copper property carrying silver and  a small amount of gold. Work done  about 3000. The "Montana" rhigher up  than the "Alice" is also galena of about 60  ounces silver in a lime and slate formation and owned by John Wilson and  others, and hud over 81000 work done  on it.  The "Tip Top" near "Montana" is a  good property and owned by J. C. Rykert,  assays about 65 ounces silver and 70 per  cent-lead-per-ton,-work-doue-about-86()0.-���������  The "Wellaud" originally known as  the "Lowland" is a property lying close  to the bottoms aiid is rather a high grade  proposition. This as in other camps  shows that the lower down, the higher  grade, assays from this which is a concentrating ore, go 9_ ounces silver and  60 per cent lead and up to SU gold per  tor.

Great Britain takes the position  that the question of arbitration was once  before proposed by Venezuela. At that  time the.foreign .office gave the subject  most careful attention aud submitted a.  reply embodying a proposition to arbitrate certain definite subjects of controversy. To this proposition Venezuela  has never made reply, either accepting or  rejecting the proposed basis of arbitration.

In any event there aro certain portions of that territory to which Venezuela  liiy's claim which under no circumstances  will he made the subject of arbitration,  as they lire recognized portions of the  British domain, and are not therefore  subjects on which the aid of arbitrators  could be invoked.  3. The subject is one betweeu Great  Britain and Venezuela, so that the good  offices of the' United States are not re- .  garded as essential to a settlement, as it  is not understood that the United States  has assumed a protectorate over VenezuT  ela, or that her interest is other than that  of a friendly government.

TAMING A SHBEW.  I have always had a slight suspicion  that the following narrative is not quite  true. It was related to me by an old  seaman, who, among other incidents of  a somewhat adventurous career, claimed  to have roceived Napoleon's sword at  the battle of Trafalgar aiid a wound in  the back at Waterloo. I prefer to tell it  in my own way, his being too garnished  with nautical terms and expletives as to  be half unintelligible and somewhat  horrifying. Our talk had been of lovo  and courtship, and after making me a  present of several tips invented by himself, and considered invaluable by his  friends, he related this story of the  courtship of a chum of his as illustrating the great lengths to which young  bloods were prepared to go in his days  to attain thoir ends.  It was a fine, clear day iu June when  Hezekiah Lewis, captain and part owner  of the schooner Thames, bound from  London to Aberdeen, anchored off the  little out of the way town of Oxford, in  Suffolk. Among other antiquities the  town possessed Hczekiah's widowed  mofher, and when there was no very  great hurry���������the world went slower in  thoso days���������the dutiful sou used to go  ashore in tho ship's boat, and after a  filial tap at his mother's window, which  often startled the old lady considerably,  pass on his way to see a young lady to'  whom ho had already proposed for five  times without effect.  The mate and crew of the schooner,  seven all told, drew up in a little knot  as tho skipper, in his shore going clothes,  appeared on deck and regarded him  with au air of grinning, mysterious interest.  "Now, you all know what you have  got to do?" queried tho skipper.  "Ayo, aye," replied the crew, grinning still more deeply.  Hozekiah regarded them closely, and  then ordering the boat to be lowered  scrambled over the side audjwas pulled  swiftly toward the shore.  A sharp scream and a breathless  """��������� 'Lawk a massy-me!'' as lie"tapped~af  his mother's window assured him that  the old lady was alivo and well, and he  continued on his way until ho brought  up at a small but pretty house iu the  noxt roa'd.  "Morning, Mr. Run-bolt," said he  heartily to a stout, red faced man who  sat smoking in the doorway.  '.'Morning, cap'n, morning,"' said the  red faced man.  "Is the rheumatism any better?'.' inquired Hezekiah anxiously, as ho grasped  the other's huge hand.  "So, so," said the. other, "but it ain't  the rheumatism so much what troubles  me," he rosumed," lowering his voico  and looking round cautiously, "it's  Kate."    . '    .  "What?", asked the skipper.  "You've heard of a man being henpecked?"   inquired    Mr.   Rumbolt'' in  tonos of husky confidence.        **  Tho captain nodded.  "I'm   chick picked," murmured the  other. '      '  "What?" inquired the astonished  mariner again.  "Chick picked," repeated Mr. Rum-  bolt firmly, "c-h-i-k-p-e-k-e-d! D'ye understand inc?"  The captain said that he did and stood  silont awhile, with tho air of a man  who wants to say something, but is half  afraid to speak. At last, with a desperate appearance .of resolution, he bent  down to tho old man's ear.  "That's the deaf un," said Mr.* Rum-  bolt promptly.  Hezekiah changed ears, speaking at  first slowly and awkwardly, but becoming moire fluent as he warmed with his  .- subject, while the expression of his listener's face gradually changed from in-  - credulous bewilderment to ono of uncontrollable mirth. He became so uproarir  ous that he was fain to push thc captain  away from him and lean back in his  chair and choke and laugh until he nearly lost his breath, at which crisis a remarkably pretty girl appeared from the  back of the house and patted him with  hearty good will. ������  ^   "That'll do* my dear," said the chok-  . ing   Mr.   Rumbolt.   "Hero's  Captain  Lewis."  "I can see  him," said his daughter  calmly.    "What's he standing on one  leg for?"    -.  Tho skipper, who really was standing  in a somewhat constrained attitude,  colored violently and planted both feet  firmly on tho ground.  ���������' 'Being as I was passing close in, Miss  Rumbolt," said he, "and coming ashore  to see mother"��������� ,  To the captain's discomfort, manifestations of a further attack on the part of  Mr. Rumbolt appeared, hut were  promptly quelled by tho daughter.  ' 'Mother,'' she repeated encouragingly-  "I thought I'd. como on and ask yon  just to pay a sort o' flying visft to the  Thames."  "Thank you. I'm comfortable enough  where I am," said tho girl.  "I've got a couple of monkeys and a  bear aboard which I'm taking to a menagerie in Aberdeen," continued tho captain, "and the thought struck me you  flight possibly liko to see 'em."  "Well, I don't know," said the dam-  eel in a flutter.    "Is it a big bear?"  "Have you ever seen an elephant?"  inquired Hezekiah cautiously.  "Only in pictures," replied the girl.  -   "Well, it's as big as that, nearly,"  said lie.  Tlio temptation was irresistible, and  Miss Rumbolt, telling her father that  she should not be long, disappeared into  the house in search of hor hat and jacket,  and ten minutes later the brawny rowers wero gazing their fill into her deep  blue eyes as she sat in tho stern of the  boat and told Lewis to behave himself.  It was but a short pull out to the  schooner, and Miss Rumbolt was soon  on the deck, lavishing endearments on  the monkey and energetically prodding  the bear with a handspike to make him  growl. The noise of the offended animal as he strove to get through the bars  of his cage was terrific, and the girl was  in the full enjoyment of it when she  became aware of a louder noise still, and  turning round saw the seamen at the  windlass.  "Why, what are they doing?" she de-  mauded.    "Getting up anchor?"  "Ahoy,. there!" shouted Hezekiah  sternly. "What are you doing with that  windlass?"  As he spoke the anchor peeped over  the edge of the bows, aud one of the  seamen, running past them, took the  helm.  . "Now, then," shouted tho fellow,  ' 'stand by. Look lively there with them  sails!"   '  Obeying a light touch of the helm,  the . schooner's  bowsprit swung  round  . from   the  laud, and the crew, hauling  lustily on the ropes, began to hoist the  sails.  "What the devil are yon up to?" thundered the skipper. "Have you all gone  mad?    What does it all mean?"  "It means," said one of tho seamen,  whose fat, amiable face was marred by  a fearful scowl, "that we've got a new  : skipper.''  ' 'Good heavens, a mutiny!'' exclaimed  the skipper, starting melodramatically  !8  M  <&_  <^  <  <  4  _  A new Railway under Construction.

"I won't," saidithe lady, stamping  violently. ���������   '  The mutineers appeared to bo in a  dilemma, and following the example of  the mate scratched tljeir heads thoughtfully.  "We thought you liked him, "said  the mate at last feebly. -  "You had no business to think," said  Miss Rumbolt. "You are bad men, aud  you'll all bo hung, every one of you. I  shall come and see it."  ' 'Tho cap'n's welcome to her for me,''  murmured  the helmsman   in a  husky i  whisper to.the man next to him.    "The. !  vixen!" |  "Very good,.',' said the mate, "if youj  won't, yon .won't. This end of theship'll  belong to you after 8 o'clock of ai night.  Lewis, you must go for'ard.with the  men."  "And what are yon going to do with  me after?" inquired the fair prisoner.  The seven men shrugged their shoulders helplessly, and Hezekiah, looking  very depressed, lit his pipe and went  and leaned over the side.  The day psissed quietly. The orders  were given by the mate, and Hezekiah  lounged moodily about, a prisoner at  large. At 8 o'clock Miss Rumbolt was  given the key of thc stateroom', and the  men who were not in the watch went  below.  The morning broke fine and clear,  with a light breeze, which toward midday dropped entirely, and the schooner,  lay rocking lazily on a sea of glassy  smoothness. The sun beat fiercely  down, bringing the fresh paint on the  taffrail up in blisters aud sorely trying  the tempers of the men who were doing  odd jobs on deck.  .

"Where's tho mate?  . "He's with us," said another seaman,  brandishing his sheath knife and scowling fearfully. He's our new captain."  In confirmation of this the mate now  appeared from below with an az in his  hand, and, approaching his captain,  roughly ordered him below.  "I'll defend this lady with my life,"  cried Hezekiah,' taking the handspike  from Kate and raising it above his head.  "Nobody'll hurt a hair of her beautiful head," said the mate, with a tender  smile.  "Then I yield," said the skipper,  drawing himself up and delivering up  the handspike with the air of a defeated  admiral tendering his sword.  "Good," said the mate briefly as one  of tho men took it.  "What!" demanded Miss Rumbolt excitedly. "Ain't you going to fight them:  _____?���������_givQ-ine that handspike. '*.  - Before the mate could interfere the  sailor, with thoughtless obedience, handed it over, and Miss Rumbolt at once  tried to knock him over tho head. Being  thwarted in this design by the man taking flight, she lost her temper: entirely  and boro down liko a hurricane on the  remaining members of the crew,- who  were just approaching.. They scattered  at ouco and ran up the rigging like cats,  and for a few moments the girl held the  deck. Then the mate crept up behind  hor, and with the air of a man whose  job exactly suited him clasped her tightly round the waist while one of tho seamen disarmed her.  "You must both go below till we've  settled whac to do with you," said the  mate, reluctantly releasing her.  With a wistful glance at the handspike tho girl walkod to the cabin, foi-.  lowed slowly by tho skipper.  ' 'This  is a  bad  business,'' said the  latter, shaking his heart solemnly, as the  indignant Miss Rumbolt seated herself.  "Don't talk to me, you coward," said  the girl energetically.  The skipper started.  "I made three of 'em run," said Miss  Rumbolt, .-"and you did nothing.    You  just stood, still  and let  them take the  ship.- '-I'm ashamed of you."  The skipper's defense was interrupted  by a hoarse voic. shouting to them to  come on dock, where they found the mutinous crew gathered aft round the mate.  The girl cast a look at the shore, which  *as now dim and indistinct, and turned  somewhat pale as tho serious nature of  her position forced itself upon her.  "Lewis, " said the mate.  "Well," growled the skipper.  "Tho  ship's  going  iu the  lace and  brandy trado, and if so be as you're sensible vou  can go with  it as mate, d'ye  hear?"  "An s'pose I do, what about the  lady?" inquired the captain.  "You and the lady'11 have to get  spliced," said the mate sternly. "Then  there'll be no tales told. A Scotch.marriage is'as-good -is any, and we'll just  lay off and put you ashore, and you can  get tied up as right as ninepeuce."  "Marry a coward like that?" demanded Miss Rumbolt with spirit. "Not if I  know it. Why, I'd sooner marry that  old man at the helm,"  ' "Old Bill's got three wives a'ready to  my sartin knowledge," spoke up ono of  guidly lip the common ladder.  For some, time the skipper sat alone  pondoring gloomily over the state of  affairs as he smoked his short pipe. He  was aroused at length from his apathy  by tho sound of the companion noisily  closed, while, loud frightened cries and  hurrying footsteps on deck announced  that something extraordinary was happening. As he arose to his feet ho was  confronted by Kate Rumbolt, who, panting aud excited, waved a big key before  him.  "I've done it,"she cried, her eyes  sparkling.  "Done what?" shouted the mystified  skipper. ,  "Let the bear loose," said the girl.  "Ha, ha, you.should have seen 'em run!  You should have seen the fat sailor!"  ' 'Let the ��������� phew! ��������� let the���������good  heavens, here's a pr._t������ kettle of fish,"  he choked.���������'������������������--���������:-;'���������  - ���������-   --'������������������  "Listen-to 'em. shouting," cried the  exultant Kate, clapping her hands.  "Just listen!"  "Those shouts are from aloft, "said  Hezekiah sternly, "where you aud I  ought to be."  "I've closed the companion, "said the  girl reassuringly.  "Closed the companion," repeated  Hezekiah as he drew his knife. "He  can smash it like cardboard if tbe fit  takes him.    Go in here."'.'..  He opened tho door of his stateroom.  "Shan't," said Miss Rumbolt politely- ��������� ' :������������������"'  '.  "Go in at once," cried the skipper,  "quick with you."  "Sha"��������� began Miss Rumbolt again.  Then she caught his eye and went iii like  a lamb. '' You come, too,'' 6he said prettily.  "I'vo got to look after my ship and  my men," said the skipper. "I suppose  you thought the ship would steer itself,  didn't you?"  "Mutineers deserve to bo eaten,"  whispered Miss Rumbolt piously, somewhat taken aback by the skipper's demeanor.  Hezekiah looked at her. "They're not  mutineers, Kate," he said quietly. "It  was just a piece of mad folly of mine.  They're as honest a set of old sea dogs  as ever breathed, and I only hope they  are all safe up aloft. I'm going to lock  you in, but don't bo frightened; it shan't  hurt you." ,-  - He slammed the "door on her protests  and locked it, and slipping the key of  the cage in his pocket book took a firm  thoroughly cowed and stood   humbly  aside to let her pass.  Tho fat seaman was standing ill front  of the cage as she reached it and regarding tho bcai with much satisfaction until Kate sidled up to him and begged  him as a personal favor to go iu the cage  and undo it.  "Undo it! Why, ho'd kill mo!"  gasped the fat seaman, aghast at such  simplicity.  "I don't think he would," said his  tormentor, with a bewitching smile,  "and I'll wear a lock of your hair all  i my life if you do.  But you'd better give  | it to mo beforo you go in. "  j     "I ain't going in, " said the fat sailor  | shortly.  j     "Not forme?"   inquired Kate archly.  "Not for 50 like you,'' replied the old  man firmly.    "He nearly had me when  he was loose.  I can't think how he got  out,"  "Why, I let him out,"said Miss  Rumbolt airily.    "Just for a little run.  jEIow would you liko to bo shirt up all  day?"  The sailor was just going to tell her  with moro fluency than politeness when  he was interrupted.  "That'll do," said the skipper, who  had como behind them. "Go forward,  you. There's been enough of this fooling; tho! lady thought you had taken tho  ship. Thompson, I'll take the helm.  There's a little wind coming. Stand by  there.".    ,  He walked aft and relieved the steersman, awkwardly conscious that the men  were becoming moro and more interested in the situation, and also that Kato  could hear some of their remarks. As ho  pondered over the subject and tried to  think of a way out of it the cause of all  thc trouble came and stood'by him.'  "Did my father know of this?" she inquired.  "I don't know that he did exactly,"  said the skipper uneasily. "I just told  him not to expect you back tonight."  "And what did he say?" said she.  "Said ho wouldn't sit up," said tho  skipper, grinning despite himself. Kate  drew a breath the length of which boded  no good to her parent and looked over  the side.  "I was afraid of that traveler chap  from Ipswich," said Hezekiah after a  pause. "Your father told me he was  hanging around you again, so I thought  I���������well, I was a'"blamed fool anyway."  "Sec how ridiculous you havo made  me look before all these men," said the  girl angrily. "      "  "They've been with mo for years,"  said Hezekiah apologetically, "aud tho  mate said it was a magnificent idea. He  quite roared about it, he did. I wouldn't  have dono it with some crews, but we've  had some dirty times together, and  they've stood hy me well. But of course  that's nothing to do with you. It's been  an adventure I'm very sorry for, very."  "A pretty safe adventure for you,"  saidithe girl-scornfullyr^"You~didn't  risk much. Look here, I like brave men.  If you go in the cage and undo that bear,  I'll marry you. That's what J call an  adventure."  "Smith," called the skipper quietly.  "Come and take the helm a bit."  The seaman obeyed, and Lewis, accompanied by the girl, walked forward.  At the bear's cage he stopped, and, fum  bling in his pocket for the key, steadily  regarded the brute as it lay gnashing its  teeth and trying in vain to bite tho ropes  which hound it.  "You're afraid," said the girl tauntingly.     "You're quite white."  Tho captain made no reply, but eyed  her so steadily that her gazo fell. He  drew the key from his pocket and inserted it in tho huge lock and was just turning it when a soft arm was drawn  through his aud a soft voice murmured  in his ear, "Never mind about tho old  bear."  And he did not mind.���������Chicago Tribune.  Exceptionally Honored.

The following strango story is told of  the manusctipt of "Elaine," a drama  by George Parsons. It was accepted and  produced by Miss Annie Russell, but no.  sooner had the, lady proceeded thus far  than she was taken ill, which entailed  tho withdrawal of the piece. Thereupon  Mr. Lathrop sent it to Miss Mary Anderson! "She liked it" and was actually in negotiation to produce it when  she also becamo ill, "desperately ill."  The unlucky author then tried Mrs.  Langtry. She was "enchanted" and  eager to bring, it out .when, lol the  Jersey Lily was "stricken down with  fever."  Finally the parcel of manuscript was  dispatched to Miss. Julia Marlowe. Regardless of her doom, like Grey's Eton  boys, this "little victim" was just then  playing to audiences in Philadelphia.

INDIAN RIGHTS.  ���������Whenever, the advancing fringe of  civilization meets tlie wild inhabitants  of the country' it has selected to occupy friction is sure to occur. Tlio  native of the soil claims as his own the  inheritance of'his forefathers and finds  it hard to control himself within the  ample bounds of reserves provided for  him. The ethics of the question are  disregarded. The aboriginal has got  to go. But it will always redound lo  the credit of the British nation that in  every quarter of the globe where it has  come into contact with the Redskins  of Canada, the Hottentots of Africa,  the Blackfellows of Australia or the  splendid Maori of New Zealand, the  aboriginal inhabitants of the soil have  always been well treated. They have  had to make room for the white man,  but in the lands they have previously  occupied there is room for both. Their  wants have been considered and provided for and the treaties made with  them have, in the main,-been faithfully  kept. The conquered savage is not,  however, always able to understand  the direct, blunt business like ways of  his conqueror. His own methods are  often circuitous and mysterious. He  speaks figuratively and broadly and if  his statements are accepted .literally  and limited to the precise meaning of  their words misunderstandings will  arise. Then the savage resorts to all  the cunning dodges and stratagems to  gain his end that are prompted by his  instinct.  This appears to be the state of affairs  in the Kootenay Valley. The Indians,  dwellers on this side of the international boundary line, are variously estimated to number from 75 to 00 individuals. They wen? granted a reserve  of 1,800 acres on the east side of the  river opposite the land now being enclosed by the dyking operations of the  Reclamation Company. They assert,  however, their right to camp on n  piece of giound now reached by the  company's operations. For some time  past they have showed themselves hostile to the company, but previous  difficulties have been got over by  means of the almighty dollar. Houses,  more properly termed huts, that stood  in the way of the works have been  bought and paid for and the cunning  __Indian__���������'���������*_.once, proceeded   to   erect  other shacks in the line of progress, for  the destruction of which the company  refused to pay. We believe the mistake was made in the first instance by  paying for any of these houses. When  the reserve was made the Indians  should have been distinctly given to  understand that outside of it they had  no rights whatever. By making these  ..payments to them some kind of rights  have been acknowledged and on them  the natives will place no limit. To the  interests, riot only of the Reclamation  Company, but of all the settlers now  and to come in that splendid valley,  the question should be put at rest  forever. All over the world experience  has shown that it is no use trifling  with natives. They have got masters  and, though those masters are liberal  and just, the natives are all the better  -when they understand that they have  got tobe.content with the liuiitsassign-  ed them by that same liberality.  THE DOG IN THE MANGER.  The town of Nelson owes little, to  the C. P. R. The debt, whatever it  was, is now transferred to the other  side of the ledger and the-town may  justly,call upon the railway to fulfill  its obligations.  When Mb. Cobbin, building his line  from Five-mile Point, found himself  stopped at the outskirts of the town  by an alleged infraction of the rights  of the C. P. R. everyone anticipated  that the trouble would be quickly removed and that the Spokane depot, so  much desired, would soon be established in the centre of the town. Mb.  Corbin took the trouble to go to Victoria, where he had an interview with  some members of the government and  with Mr. Abbott, the. C. P. R. Superintendent at Vancouver. The Premier  commeuted on the triviality of the  affair as a matter of business, stating  the parties could probably settle it  there and then. Mr. Corbin asserted  his willingness to do so. Mb. Abbott,  however, professed himself unauthor-  ized.to do anything final in the matter  and became therefore as useless as the  lowest clerk in his office to effect a  settlement. When the Premier said  that the affair, a's a matter of business,  could probably be settled in a few  minutes, he meant that men who had  only a common sense business view of  the matter to attend .to could do so.  He forgot or overlooked for the moment that in the ''business" arrangements of the C. P. R. there is no room  for any one else.  This interview took place some  months ago. Mb. Abbott has had  plenty of time to communicate with  Sib William Van Horne, but absolutely nothing has been done towards  a settlement of the. dispute. If wc  wait for a move on the part of the  C. P. R. we may have t.o wait some  time. Mr. Corbin has done all that a  man could do and cannot he expected  to do more. He brought the railway  to the gates of the town. He went, to  ���������Victoria, keeping meanwhile a force of  men and sufficient plant on hand to  complete tlie job at a very great expense. * As a self respecting man he  nuturallydeclines to grovel before the  Juggernaut of .Canada;.''  Meanwhile Nelson has to go without  ils railway station and when its. inhabitants desire to go. but-.by-the  Spokane line ihey have to'climb six  hundred feet up the mountain side. It  is positively tn.on_.ruus that the people  should thus be ground under tlie heels  of Ihe tyrant. It is no exaggeration  to say that the burdens borne by the  nations of old under the rule* of despotic rulers, the stories of which make  our blood boil today, were in .110 sense  more arbitrary than this. Then they  were imposed by the will of one man  who maintained his power by the  sword. Today the yoke is placed on  our necks by one man, who holds his  sway by means of the power that  money gives, by intrigue, and by Acts  of Parliament corruptly gained.  The people of Nelson have, however,  several advantages over the crushed  peoples of former times. They have  the right of free speech and they have  the right of voting, and this matter  will be remembered at'"the coining  elections. In olden days we should  probably have been beheaded for what  we have written today.   -  THE LONDONDERRY SMASH.  Another proof has been given of the  axiom that high grade mines are uncertain. The Londonderry mine at  Coolgardie has pet red out. This mine  was sold .only the other day to. an  English Company by its. Original purchasers, among whom were" Lord Fin-  gall and Col. North, of nitrate fame,  for $2,000,000. The. last wining papers  received from London contained an account of thegeneral meetingof thecoin-.  pany, at which the utmost enthusiasm*  prevailed. One speaker, who appeared  to be received as if heknew what he was  talkingabout and was'fobedepended up-  said that within eight, weeks he could  get out five tons of gold.: JSve.n while  he spoke the.discovery must have been  made that the ledge, the reef it as is  called in Australian mining' parlance,  was nothing but a huge mass of  '���������hungry" quartz with an extraordinarily rich cap. The shares, which  were quoted in London on 23rd March  last at 30s. (20s. being paid) had, previous to the. announcement of the  collapse, been fluctuating considerably,  large quantities being mysteriously  tin own upon the market.' It appears  -that-the-directors'-had'-beeri'-for^some'  days in possession of a telegram, revealing the unfortunate, state of affairs  and had been quietly "unloading" before taking the public into their confidence.   .    ��������� ...'.-.  The affair has naturally caused a  panic in the London mining market  and has'hit Coolgardie a blow-from  which it will never recover unless it  can produce a mine that will' last, for  years. It will also, we hope, ..act as a  warning to the public not. to.jump at  extraordinarily rich prospects, for.  that is.wha.tthe Londonderry strictly  was, but to turn their attention to the  more sober but vastly richer low grade  propositions.  There is nothing on the face of ib to  show that the vendors acted in anything but good faith. Col. North, in  proof of his innocence'has handed to  trustees the whole of his share of the  purchase money and all his shares to he  disposed of for the benefit of the ruined  shareholders. It seems simply to be a  case of the old story, ah eager-public  jumping at a rich specimen cropping  out without waiting to see what development of the ledge will disclose..  rescued from some dire complaint by  Little's Liver Lotion. Why were these  people saved? Why could they not be  allowed to die peacefully and bury  their invariably hideous physiognomies in the grave? The people who  invented these Pills and these Lotions  ought to be sentenced to "something  humorous, with boiling oil or melted  lead in it." When these portraits are  hot of., persons whose faces would  generally hang them, they are of  people without teeth, or whose hair is  falling off, or who suffer from some  terrible complaint that has the effect,  in our minds, of making us at once  crumple up the paper containing it  and hurl it into the waste paper basket  accompanied by language that would  send us to gaol if we wrote it.  ' France and England are disputing  somewhat loudly as to their respective^  rights in equatorial Africa. As a mat-'  ter of fact neither has any right there  at all if you come right down to the  bottom of it. As against each other,  however, it will probably be a case of  "lirst come, first served." Mr. Cecil  Rhodes will have something to say on  the matter probably. He is a kind of  African ��������� Monroe Doctrine embodified.  He is said to be the "strongest" man  living and has ways and means of  gaining his ends before which diplomacy quails and ancient rights and  usages hold up their hands aghast.  Mr. Joseph Morrison, a stockholder  in the Canadian Pacific Railway, is a  man of pluck. At the meeting of the  C. P. R. Company he moved that the  working expenses be reduced to fifty  percent, of the gross earnings Having  made this proposition, which goes to  the bed rock of things, he then pro-'  reeded to beard the lions in their den.  He moved that the President, Vice-  President and other big offiicials who  are stockholders should give their services for nothing!! I It is a wonder  Sir William didn't choke.  At the same meeting too, a Mr. Mc-  Master had something to say. He  asked the directors to what, extent the  reserve fund of $-.,000,000 had been  encroached upon". Sir William Van  Home replied that it. had been drawn  upon to pay interest on large bonds,  but there is still '-$2, OIK), 000 cash available. Mr. McAllisterseverely criticised  this action, holding that the deposit  had been for the express purpose of  paying a regular five per cent, dividend upon the ordinary stock, and "now  it is admitted that most of the $_,000,-  C30 had been used for other purposes.  In strong terms he attacked the system of financing, and said that while  the President was a very good railroad  man he proved a bad financier.  KODAK  AGENTS.  Amateur Work Developed.

FOREST WEALTH OF CANADA.  IMPROVING SILVER PROSPECTS.  Among the surprises of the recent financial situation have been the appreciation in the price of silver. It has been  supposed here that the prospect of another international monetary conference  was effective in producing the improvement in silver values, and that the increased production which has resulted  from the low prices had left the market  in a position where response to such influences was necessarily prompt.  While these factors have not been inoperative in the matter, it would, however, seem that the^ prospect of a peace  between China and Japan is the immediate active moving cause for the rise.   In-  -deed, the London Statist of March 16th,  . in  discussing   the,- topic,  puts  it very  "bluntly that't_fe~B_.'vah"ce"in"silver'is pure*7"  ly speculative, and that the profits of  speculators who have been purchasing  silver depend on the realization - of the  hope that a peace between the two warring Eastern nations can - be arranged*.  According to the authority'in question,  India, which had been a buyer since the  beginning of the year, has stopped its  purchases, while there is little real demand from either China or Japan, the buy-  buying therefore purely speculative. Con.:  tiiiuiug, our contemporary observes: "If  the Chinese government is at last convinced that it is. hopeless to resist any  longer, and is willing to submit to whatever terms Japan.may impose, then there  ' will probably be a sharp rise iu silver, for  everyone expects that the main Japanefe  condition.will be a large indemnity from  .China. . China has not the means of paying a large indemnity except by borrowing. And it is to be presumed that if  China is able to give the requisite security, so as to obtain the amount i-quired,  a very considerable proportion of the proceeds will be taken iu silver. If that  turns out to be the case silver must advance. .But a rise iu silver brought about  by-a temporary demand must, in the very  nature of the case, be only temporary.  If,' indeed, it be another condition of  peace that China shall be opened up,  and if the Chinese honestly carry out  ��������� what they undertake, it- is possible that  there may be a steadying cf theprice of  silver, and that gradually there mi'iy be  even a further advance. Even if the  population of China is only about 300.-  000,000, that population is so immense  and the resources of the country are so  vast that if once there is industrial enter1-  prise of the European kind, there will inevitably he a great inflow of silver to  China, and that cannot fail to have a  great influence upon the price of silver.  But,our readers will do well to remember  that all this is pure speculation. Nobody  knows whether China is yet convinced  that she has to yield. Nobody* knows  what tbe conditions of peace will be: nobody knows, in short, what will follow.  All that can safely be said is that a large  demand for silver by China would send  up the price of the metal, and that there  would be a fall afterwards if the Chinese  demand came to an end. On the other  band, if China is opened up. and there is  a steady demand for silver, the price of  the metal must improve."  However just these  qualifications may  "be, it would seem that the maiket has  not been impressed by them. Ou the  contrary, the upward course of silver  prices has continued almost without intermission.���������Uradstreet's.  Under the above title' a most useful  and interesting Blue book has just  been issued by the Dominion. Of the  trees of this piovince it s<iys:  Of all the provinces and territories of Canada, British Columbia is,  as a whole, tbe most densely wooded  with valuable timber of great variety.  It does not possess the king of Canadian trees, the unrivalled white pine  (P. strobus), but, in other respects, it  surpasses the rest of the Dominion.  The Douglas fir is the most important  ti in bt i" tree, growing abundantly and  to an enormous size on Vancouver Island on the mainland shore, and in  places extending inland, even as we  Iiave seen, to the eastern .slope of the  Rockies. This is the main object of  the lumberman, and besides the domestic use, is exported in great quantities, being widely known in commerce as "Oregon Pine," '��������� It makes  strong and large building timber, ad-  mil able masts, and good, if rather  coarse, lumber. The gigantic cedar  also growing along the sea-coast, is  much used, especially for shingles.  The yellow cypress, another sea-coast  tree extending further north, is also of  large size and ils wood is of line grain.  The white mountain pine, is also  largely used, where accessible, being  tbe nearest substitute for our white  pine (P. strobus), though its lumber is  not so good, and the same may be said  of the western yellow pine, another inland tree. The spruce of Eastern  Canada, which crosses the continent  from ocean to ocean, extends northward to the boundary of the province,  and in its far western habitat, is even  larger and better than in the east. The  western black or Engelinann's spruce,  an inland tiee, is even superior in'size  and quality, sis is also the Sitka spruce  of the coast. There are various other  valuable coniferous trees. The poplars,  in some" places, are 'gigantic. The  hardwoods are well represented, among  them by an oak and some maple peculiar to this coast. The climate seems  so well suited to tree growth that even  those that are little better than shrubs  elsewhere, become of importance and  value, as the red alder, the dogwood,  the arbutus, the crab apple, &c.

The griscttc was dying out at tho beginning of tho second empire, but  bright examples of her still survived,  and it was inpossible to look at them  without keen appreciation of their  strango attractiveness. It must bo remembered that the grisette constituted  a type, not a class; that she was a grisette because of what she looked like,  not because of what she was. She was  rather generally well behaved and always hardworking.  She was a shop assistant, a maker of  artificial flowers, a seamstress of a hundred sorts, but it was not her occupation that made her a grisette.
