The Tribune says Salt Lake smelters  are endeavoring to obtaiu cheaper production methods iu order to successfully  compete with prevailing conditions.  The Inter-Mountain says that the -men  .working on the 1000-foot level of the  Anaconda miue nt Butte, Montana, find  their whiskers "changing from their  natural color to a pale green."  The Denver Record .says that au Eastern chemist passed through that city a  few days ago en route from southern  Colorado, where he has beeu examining  a discovery of tin ore. He predicts "a  tremendous excitement" as soon as the  locality is made public.  The annual company is being organized to look for a mythical gold ledge  found on the Mojave desert many years  ago, but lost sight of by reason of the  death from heat aud thirst of the finder.  Considerable money and effort are yearly  squandered in this way, but usually the  expedition starts a little earlier than May.  W. F. Kendrick, of Denver, writes:  "There is a large increase in the tonnage  of ore received at the smelters since the  dissolution of the Smelters' Clearing  House Association, ou account of the  reduction of both smeltiug aud railroad  charges, which encourages the shipping  of alower grade of ores, which can now  be sold at a liberal profit."  Talking of Montana the Butte Review  says that this is going to be a great season for, mining operations, more particularly" iu the hue of prospecting and the  opening up of new placer and quartz districts. -Already the hills aie rilled with  prospectors opening up ground that, for  many-years has been considered worthless. Old mines that have been abandoned for years and placer diggings that  were abandoned long ago are again being  worked.  The Hunter mine at Mullan, is to be  opened up again with wages at S3 for  miners and $2.50 for labourers. The rate  for board is also reduced from S7_ to $5  "per week. " The" celebrated De Lamar  mine which' is making a net profit of  $40,000 a month is paying the same wages.  THE SHIPPING SEASON.  Mr. E. J. Mathews, the agent of the  Omaha and Grant Smelter, was in  town on his way to Omaha for a well'  earned rest. Mr. Mathews has sue  xeeded during the past "winter in securing for his company nearly all the  ore���������upwards of -1,000 tons���������that went  out from the Slocan mine.-* over Lhe  Nakusp and Slocan Railway. The last  carload for the season left Three Forks  on Wednesday. There are still 100  tons of Alpha ore awaiting shipment,  at Silverton and when this has left the  shipping season will have closed. Just  now lhe trails to Ihe higher mines "are  impassable. Shipments will be recommenced probably in about a couple* of  months by the Slocan Star. - Mr.  White is building a wagon road down  to Sandon, whence a. government road  leads to Three Forks. The. Idaho and  Alamo properties will quickly follow  suit as soon as their tramway, now  being actively pushed ahead, is finished. Air. Finch will also ship from the  Silver Bell.   '  A year ago all shipments practically  ceased for the entire summer, but now  in addition to the above there will be  the-' Alpha' at Silverton, the Silver  King, the Blue Bell, the No. 1 at Ainsworth and  the Trail  Creek camp  all  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  A TOAD MOUNTAIN DEAL.  liuilwny  News  from Ku.ln.���������l-irgi; Customs.  Itt'i'-ipts.��������� Tlie   liiilulli Syndicate Kiiying  Trail Creek Property.  XHI.SUX.  The Starlight claim on Toad Mountain has been bonded by Mr. A. IS.  Humphreys of Duluth., The bond calls  for $30,000 within six months, of which  a certain amount is paid in cash. The  Starlight is the property of Messrs.  Kelly and Buchanan and contains a  large ledge, which has been proved by  means of tunnels and open cuts to  extend along the surface for 700 feet,  [t is largely composed of free milling  gold quart/., but contains also pyritic  iron with a high percentage of copper.  Tt is understood that Mr. Humphreys,  who represents the syndicate of Dnluth  capitalists who own the Idaho, Alamo  and other mines, will put a considerable force of men to work as soon as  the snow loaves the ground, in about a  fortnight or three weeks. Should his  explorations turn out satisfactorily  Toad Mountain will very quickly out  rival Trail Creek. A very great deal  depends upon this claim, as there are  several otheis of like nature in the  neighbourhood.  Both monitors have been got to  woi'k at Forty-nine Creek and will be  now running continuously as long as  the water lasts.  KASLO.  Several railway contractors have  come in during the past week. Notably among them are the Porter Bros,  from Spokane, who will bid for ten or  twelve miles of the road and also all  the bridge work aud lie contracts.  They are at present looking over the  ground.  Grading and clearing of right of  way is now in full blast, the first  two miles having been alio ted to contractor McDonald. A number of men  are now employed on the grade leading  to the wharf.  Mr. Guthrie returned from the coast  on Wednesday and is busy with subcontractors getting bids, etc., for portions of the road.  Mr. I_. J. Mathews, ore buyer for the  Grant Omaha Smelter, left* Friday  morning on a visit to Omaha.  The committee ou sports for the 24th  are fitting up the Columbia House for  a dancing pavilion.  Men are employed by the city council clearing stumps and rocks from  the streets.  A general moving of cabins by squatters who had built on railway lots  alter the flood of last year is going on.  A number of them have purchased  lots from tho Messrs. Kane Bros, and  are building on -th. hill overlooking  the town.  Mr. Chas. L. Arnold returned from  Kosslaud on/Tuesday last and went up  to look after his interests in LheSlocan  district.  Very little danger is apprehended  from the river at present, as the water  as gone down considerably during the  cold spell.  The  TRAIL CREl-lC.

Development  work has begun under' the management, of Bill Stickney, formerly the  foreman on the Mountain Chiei'.-  The shipments from the War Eagle,  Le Roi and .losie now aggregate over  ���������150 tons a day.        -  The niining receipts at Rossland for  April amounted lo $1,-00 and the  general ..receipts at the government  ollice to. .2,000. - "  Colonel Peyton has resigned the  management of (he Jj'e Roi Mining Co.,  which has been assumed by Mr. Poster  of Spokane.  . A bar of gold valued at sSSoO was  shipped by John Y. Cole from the O.  K. mine.  A. now vein has been discovered on  the War Eagle showing several feet of  solid ore. It is about 00 feet to the  north of the main vein.  Authentic news was received yesterday Lo the effect that the Nickel Plate  had been sold to a New York company.  The terms ahd conditions of the sale  are not known except, that it was  made through C. J. Griffiths of Helena,  Sam Silverman and George H. Casey,  and that Carter & Rhodes retain  twenty per cent, of Lhe stock. This  sale is certain to lead to  extensive de-  very  -velopinent and deserves noting.

Mineral Creek runs  io a northerly direction for about ten  miles and seems to be the western boundary of the mineral bell.  The Cariboo Creek is afterwards joined by several streams on all of which  mineral has been found, but so little has  been done on the claims at present that  it is impossible to say of what value they  are. At present the snow is down too  low to allow of prospecting ou tho higher  ground, and another mouth must pass  before the snow has vanished. Except  iu patches the timber has all been killed  by fire aud there is little undergrowth,  but. to compensate these is a heavy deposit of surface aud it is only iu the  creeks that bed rock is found.  The mineralised rock appears to be  quartz, red and white, and heavly iu-  pregnated with iron. Some of this carries a good deal of gold and has beeu  assayed with very good results.  On the hills to the south of Cariboo  Creek aud southeast of Mineral Creek  some quartz with galena has been found,  while three miles up Mineral Creek an  ore somewhat similar to that of Trail  Creek is now beiug mined. Only a dozen  are al present working, and owing to tho  heavy iron capping to the ledges it will  take some time to tell the value of the  prospects. There is however a wide field  for piospeetors as the whole couutry for  several miles east of Mineral Creek is  mineral, and locations have been made  on several of the creeks running into  Mineral and Cariboo Creeks.

For the iuformatiou of prospectors intending to visit Cariboo Creek this season  !Y. j we give the following information.   The  ' '! creek runs into Trout Creek just before  j the latter joins the Columbia, aud at the  mouth of Trout Creek a townsite has been  located, which is now beh'g cleared and  surveyed, called Burton City.    With the  exceptiou of a few cabins the only  buildings are an hotel kept by Hugh ��������� Madden,  Parkers store and restaurant, and Messrs.  Bourne Bros, store.   The prices charged  are very moderate, and prospectors can  purchase ou  the spot almost  anything  they require at Nakusp pr ces.  From the landing a fairly  good pack  trail has been made to Mineral Creek a  l'  The weather, which has been boisterous and stormy for ten days or so, seems  to have settled down finally to sum-  met' at last.  Mr. McVicor, the new minister of the  Presbyterian Church, arrived ou Tuesday  last and will officiate in the church tomorrow.  Letters have been received from E.  Apnlewhaite, announcing his departure  from England for British Columbia. He  may be expected iu a-few days.  We acknowledge with many thanks  the receipt from Her Majesty's Printer,  of a bound copy of the Acts of Parliament  of B. C. passed last session. ���������  The. article on British Columbia  mining which we noticed in the British  Trade Journal and from which we gave  extracts, has been' copied into Bradstreets.  We are requested to express the  thanks of the boys of the Nelson  Juniot Baseball Nine for the liberal  way in which the people of Nelson contributed to their club.  Jl. Rashdall who has been employed  for some time at the Record oflice in  New Denver has been moved to Kaslo.  He was in town on Friday and his many  friends were glad to see him.  The s. s. Alberta will probably be ready  for-sea, if the term is permissible, by  Thursday next. We understand that a.  first she will ruu only between Nelsou  and Kaslo, connecting at Nelsou with all  C. P.

A sidewalk is also to be built  which will be a. great convenience. The  children have not been forgottou and a  sidewalk is to be built up Stanley street  as far as the school. -   ,  Amongst other-visitors during the past'  week we have noticed Mr. Ford manager  of the Dominion Express Company; Mr.  J.

I The country is overrun with'desper-  jately poor adventurers, and expenses  are extremely high." We regret that  this has only been brought lo our  notice just as we go to press. This  kind of lie wants correcting, but this  week we can do no more than direct  the "Commercial's" attention to our  ore shipments, and to the items of  news from Trail Creek.  Three men in a boat, or rather out of it  had a narrow escape from drowning on  Tuesday last. Messrs. Mnthie.ou, Campbell aud Russell were out sailiug near the  end of the railway wharf. The day was  an exceptionally squally one and at times  the usually peaceful surface of the lake  was lashed into miniaturebillows. During  one of these heavy squalls that sweep  down upon the lake out of Cotton Wood  creek, the boat capsized and the three  men were throwu into the water. A lite  boat at ouec put out from the Alberta  and rescued the unfortunates who luckly  got of! with a ducking. However good  swimmer a man may be, the icy waters of  the lake would soon finish him if he had  far to go. It is the extreme colduess  that is the chief danger of the lake.  Rudyard Kipling will shortly return to  Iudia where he will prepare, for the Cosmopolitan, twelve articles to appear in  the American and English editions of  that magazine. India is one of the most  interesting of countries, and Mr. Kipling  isjable to write of it as no oue else can. His  work will bo looked forward to with  world-wide expeciation.  Perhaps the most beautiful series of  pictures ever presented of the Rocky  Mountains will be found in a collection  of fourteen original paintings, executed by Thomas Moran for the May Cosmopolitan. To those who have been  in the Rockies, this issue of The Cosmopolitan will be a souvenir worthy of preservation. This number contains fifty-two  original drawings, by Thomas Moran,  Oliver Herford, Dan Beard, H. M. Eaton,  F. G. Attwood, F. O. Small, F. Lix, J. H.  Dolph, and Rosin a Emmett Sherwood,  besides six reproductions of famous recent  woiks of art, and forty other interesting  illustrations���������ninety-eight in all. Though  The Cosmopolitan sells for ��������� but fifteen  cents, probably no magazine in the world  will present for May so great a number  of illustrations specially designed for - its  page's by famous illustr ators. The fiction  in this number is by F. Hopkiuson  Smith, Gustav Kobbe, W. Clark Russell,  Edgar W. Nye, and T. C. Crawford.  NEWS OF THE PROVINCE.  GOLD IN VANCOUVER.  BIG BEND TRAVEL.  The exodus to Big Bend has been as  great as on any previous week. Tom  Horne started on Tuesday with his  new boat���������the ''Big Bend"���������on her  first trip up the .Columbia. She had  about; 7 tons of freight in cargo, and  including himself, nine passengers and  helpers���������Win. Haley, Andy Parks,  Dan Gillespie, Bert Lynn, Joe Bourgeois, Fiank Saunders, J. 13.

Mr. Horne does not expect to, have any trouble in getting his  boat over Death Rapids with a line,  but will portage the freight.  Charlie Norleins took the trail on  Wednesday* for Gold stream, and John  Shaw on Thursday. ,T. W. Bain sent.  up his freight on Home's boat, and  went out on the trail on Wednesday  to his ranch at Downie Creek, where  he intends to put in various crops aiid  especially a big one of potatoes.

Consequently H-. M. S. Wild  Swan nnd Satellite tripped their anchors  and sailed away on the 5th May, leaving  the Royal Arthur still there. The account published in tbe ..Spokane papers  reads as if it was written by au eye wit-  ���������]ess,,but when he mentions that the red  ensign of Britain was llyiug from thede  parting ships, one is apt to doubt if-- the  correspondent was actually on the spot,  as British men-of-war always fly white  ensigns. When also this same correspondent lets himself out by spelling the  onra of a boat "ores,'* it looks very much  as if during the slack time in thc mines  one of tiie Spokesman Review's young  rneu had beeu set to the task of doing  the special correspondence for his pap*>r  iu a back ollice in Spokane?  With regard to the tail-twisting editorials iu some of the American  papers  to  .which we drew.atteution last week,  the  following extract  from uo less a  paper  than Harpers Weekly will be read with  interest:   "No patriotic citizen, cau  contemplate the exalted place thus open  to  the United St-'tes among the nations jjf  the earth without beiug disgusted at the  so   called   American   statesmanship   of  the Fryes aud the Lodges aud  the Morgans, which would degrade the  republic  lo   the level of a" common   rufl'au-' and  bully,  constantly strutting about   with  a chip ou his shoulder' defiyiug anyone  to touch it.   There   is   something inexpressibly-vulgar   and  contemptible   iu  the eternal balderdash   that   European  powers, which are ouly  too glad to re-  maiu on good terms with us,  are incessantly seeking to insult us,' aud  that we  need a big navy  and "keys"  and  "outposts'* in various parts  _fthe   world  to  protect our commerce  against   their, insolence and rapacity.  Those who indulge  : in such tall taik lack not only good sense  j and respect for the truth, but the first conception of the true power aud dignity of  their couutry.    It has  always  been   the  just pride of the Ameiican  people that  they are  the ouly  great  nation  in   the  world which does not need a large array  I and'navy.

Sealing Season Closed.���������News From Ciiriliuo.  .Medicinal Sprinc at Comox.  The close season for pelagic senling  commenced on-the ]st inst, and the  schooners are returning to Victoria. The  catches are light.  A medicinal springsaidtobeofconsiderable value has been found near Comox.  Tlie waters contain chlorides of sodium,  calcium and potlassium, and sulphates of  magnesia and iron. A company has been  formed tode\elop the spring. A large  hotel will be built, a park of 10 acres is  to be laid off and bottling works erected.  There is suppressed excitement among  a few mining men in Vancouver over the  reported find of a gold lead just outside  the city limits. The lead is narrow, but  the quality is extremely rich. The ore  is free milling, aud one man, it is claimed,  could make wages with a pan and ordinary hammer. In a piece of specimen ore  weighing two ounces there was $1 worth  of gold. The lucky man fouud the lead  within a few feet of his shack and will be  able to haul the ore to the city with a  horse and wagon. " .,  The hull of the steamer which is being  built by Jos. Genelle and others at Tap-  peu Siding is, says the Mail, nearly finished, and it was the intention to launch  her on April 30th. The boat is 90 feet  long and 18 feet iu breadth of beam.  The machinery from Peterboro, is on  hand and will be immediately put in.  The engine is 100 horse-power, from the  Hamilton Manufacturing Co., Vancouver.  It is expected the steamer will be ready  for business by the middle of May. She  will run on Shuswap Lake, the South  and NorLh Thompson, and bring down  ore from the Homestake mine to Kamloops.  Two schemes have recently received  considerable comment at New Westminster. One is to buMd a canal from  Westminster by way of swampy islands,  small lakes and valleys to False creek,  Vancouver. It is said the cost would be  comparatively small, owing to the nature  ofcthe ground. Tne other is to build a  tramway line from Westminster to Vancouver via Steveston. This would be ruu  by steam, with three cars attached. It  would go through Sappertou, past  Buruaby lake, or, perhaps, by way of  South Vancouver, past Jericho. Montreal capitalists are said to be inquiring  into the latter scheme.  In an interview with the Colonist Senator Reid said that everything seems ripe  in Cariboo for au exceptionally busy sea-  sou. Apart from several hundred employ ���������  es of the Cariboo and Horselly compauies  there are fully 2,000 miners scattered  throughout the mining districts. Mr.  Reid warned the public against any  too sauguiue expectations as to the resnli-  this season. With the exceptiou of thc  two large., companies above icterred to,  it is not very probable that others will  take out much gold. Hydraulic milling  is by no means a superficial proceeding,  and another hard season's work, coup  led with the judicious outlay of capital,  will be necessary before they are estab  fished on a paying basis. A la. ge dredging plant has beeu built at SoUa Creek  iu order to operate on the Utile "Smoky  river,-which is a tributary of "the Erase!  about 200 miles from Soda Creek.

The situation on the island of Formosa  is serious and fears are entertained for  the safety of the. foreigners there. British aud German marines have been landed at Aupiug, on the southwest coast, to  protect foreign residents, and Taku harbor, south of A u ping, is beiug patrolled  by- blue-jackets in armed launches.  There are rumours of dissensions in  the English Cabinet. Tne bone of" contention is the Local Veto Bill, an English form of prohibition. Sir William  Vernon Harcourt wants the bill brought  up for second reading at once, but- the  other members of the" Cabinet desire  some other measures to be passed first,  as "it is not unlikely that the liberal .  government will be defeated on this bill.  The governor of Formosa says the cession of that island to'the Japanese will  produce a rebellion. He declares that  lie has lost ail control of his soldiers,, and ���������  tnat the foreigners must save thiemselves.

"L-acilel"  "Eh? I- beg your pardon, Gilbert.  Did you speak to me?"  "Speak  to you?   I  asked you  thre.  times to give me another cup of coffee. "  "Did you, dear?   I'm so sorry I" and  .Mrs. Corin oxton'ded a slim whito hand  for tho coffee cup.  "May I ask what so engrossed your  ���������thoughts?" inquired hor husband, a little irritably.  Lucilo smiled. "Oh, you'll only laugh  at me if I toll you."  "Never mind. What was it?" reitor-  'ated her husband, a littlo mollified.  "I���������I was thinking of somo lovely  Turkish embroidory they showed mo at  Liborty's yesterday, and"���������  "My dear girl, what can you possibly  do with  Turkish  embroidery?"   intor-  , rnpted Mr. Corin impatiently.  "Woll, do you know that's what I've  been wondering evor since, and I've  just discovered"���������  "But"���������  "Yes,".. continued Lucilo, regardless  of the impertinont monosyllable, "I  think it would look perfectly lovely to  trim a tea gown. It could outlino a sort  of crepe de chine, you know, and underneath"���������  "Tut, tut! I don't want you decked  ont like a houri in a harem."  "Gilbert I"  "I don't like all these new fangled  things women get up in to look like fig-  area on a Japanese fan"���������  "But, mydoar husband, there's nothing Japanese about Turkish embroidery!" exclaimed Lucilo as sho pushed  back her chair from tho breakfast tabic.  "Never mind; I don't like it. Besides you are really too extravagant,  Lncile. I cannot see tlio necessity for  all those wonderful toilets."  "My dear Gilbert, don't talk about  things you don't understand."  And, gathering up tho small pile of  letters that were beside hor plate, Mrs.  Corin made her way to tbe door.  "Oh, by tho way," said her husband,  a little hesitatingly, "do you very much  mind giving up the Claytons' ball tonight?"  "Giving up their ball I Why, in tho  name of all that's reasonable, should 1  do that?"  "Because I ask you."  Mrs. Corin shrugged her shoulders iu  silence.  "You. will write to excuse yourself?"  "Certainly not. Why, I've got a perfect dream of a gown to wear, and 1  mean to thoroughly enjoy myself."  "That is to say you intend to make  yourself conspicuous by your flirtations,  as usual."  Lncile laughed. .  .   "I will not allow it.   You shall not  go on in this ridiculous fashion. "  "My. dear Gilbert, don't you think  that it is you who aro ridiculous just  now? You silly fellow," she continued,  drawing near him, "what does it matter  to you if half the men iu the room are  in love with me when yon' know that  I'm not in love with them? There, don't  talk nonsense, irmd be off to your ride."  "Why don't you come, too?" asked  her husband, half mollified again.  . "I���������oh, no! Couldn't possibly 6pare  the time, dear." Heaps of things to do  and letters to write! Goodby for tho  present."  And with a laughing farewell shu  tripped out of the room.  The'smiles, however, vanished as sho  sank into a low chair in her boudoir  and picked one note out of tho heap-  tbat lay in her lap. Mrs. Corin's pretty  dimples disappeared and her brows con-  . tracted into a frown as she read:  -D_An __ns.-CoruN���������Yon -knowyof course,-t_at  I am engaged to Miss Kathleen Mayse. Don't  you think under tho circumstances it would  bn better for you to return mc somo very foolish effusions of mine which you still" have? 1  am sure you will see tho advisability of this  and will bo good enough to givo tho packet to  my friend Appl.garth, who will call upon you  -at 12 this morning. Yours sincerely,    . W. E.  "I shall do nothing of tho sort," ex-  claimed Lucilo when sho had reroad  the letter for the third timo. "Engaged  to Kathleen Mayso, indeed i Engaged to  her thousands, he ought to have said���������  a horrid, plain, little, red haired thing  without an idea in hor head. It is perfectly disgusting, tho things men will  do for money, but I did think Wilfrid  was different. I did believe in him at  least. " And she roso from hor chair indignantly. "Why, not a yoar ago, ho  was ready to blow his brains out bocauso  I would not marry him, and now"���������  She finished her senteuco with a dramatic gesture worthy of Duso he.rsolf.  A dangerous littlo person sho looked as  , sho paced up and down tho pretty boudoir. The fact was that Mrs. Corin was  suffering acutely from . tho complaint  which in oiir nursery days we called  "dog in the mangerness. " . ^ .  Married beforo the close of her first  season to a man whoso hold on life and  fortune was more unstable than any  one had supposed, at 21 sho was left a  widow with an income which allowed  small margin for opera boxes- or Parisian toilets, both of which, with tout co  - que s'enstiit, were exceedingly dear to  the littlo woman's heart. Launched  among a certain set, however, she was  swimming with the stream to no very  safe port when Gilbert Corin���������an elderly ' banker���������came, saw and was conquered. -    -  Somo oue says somewhere that there |  are no wedding bells which do not ring j  the knell of somebody's happiness, and j  certainly on  Ladle's  second marriage !  morning Wilfrid Endicott might well!  'Cave been dnbbed tbe "Knight of   the  Rueful Countenance." He and the pretty little widow had, for sorao timo before Corin's appearance upon the scene,  been engaged in a very serious flirtation  ���������so serious indeed that when Ker elderly suitor declared himself, and  Lncile  murmured the fateful "Yes," she had a  nearer  approach  to a qualm  of  conscience than she had ever experienced,  Without doubt had Wilfrid been suit  ably endowed with this world's goods  there would havo been small chance for  Gilbert; but, as things were, "marriage  was a luxury they could not afford,"as.  Lucilo told tho angry young man when  he camo to upbraid her for hor faith-  lessuess. The littlo woman was not without a tasto for dramatic situations, and  on tho whole sho rather enjoyed h������r  farowoll interviow with Wilfrid. Sho  wept a littlo in a becoming fashion and  gavo utterance to a few sentiments of  tho "Blanche Amory" typo and endod  by saying that sho would liko to keep  his letters as a souvenir of thoir  "dream."  Though she had laid oxpross commands on Wilfred as to their conduct to  >ach other after her marriago, Lucilo had  lio intention of their being obeyed. Un-  l'ortunatoly, howovor, and as every silvor  lining has its dark cloud, Gilbert Corin  was as jealous as a Moor, aud somo  whispers .oncoming hiswifo aud Endicott having reached his ears it was  speedily mado clear to Wilfrid that Mr.  Corin was by no moans likoly to find a  placo among tho maris complainants.  Acting on tho principle that whon a  man's heart is broken ho gathers up the  pieces and molts them together again at  tho nearest candlo, Wilfrid had gono to  Kathleen Mayso for consolation, which  consolation was possibly all tho moro  effective that, as a setoff to her red hair  and hazel eyes, tho young lady was solo  hoiress to ono of the richest iron founders in England.  .  The ongagement had been formally  announced a fow days ago, and somehow Lucilo's maid had not found that  her lot lay among the lilies and roses of  lifo over since, and this letter capped  everything���������the calmly impersonal tone  of it���������it might havo boon from any one  to any one���������and hor hands clinched as  sho thought of the contents of the packet  that she was so summarily called on to  deliver up to this Mr. Applegarth.  Mrs. Corin unlocked a drawer iu her  writing table and took out a small parcel neatly tied up and docketed:  "Lotters from W., June���������August,  1893."  She untied it and glanced over ono or  two of the most passionate.  "To think that he could write like  that and then bo so utterly faithless,"  she exclaimed. "I've a groat mind to  send the wholo lot to that littlo Mayse  girl!" She paused. It would be a delightfully dramatic thing to do. It savored of French novels and Dumas'  plays. "No, no. It wouldn't be safe.  There's uo knowledge, she might mako  a scandal, and if it got to Gilbert's ears  it might be awkward. No, I supposo  there's nothing to do, after all, but  meekly deliver them up. How wretchedly tame! What a stupid, commonplace  ending! 'You'vo como for a parcel for  Mr. Endicott? So sorry to havo given  yon so much trouble. Thank you. Good  morning.' . No, I won't! I can't let it  end like that. Wilfrid shal 1 come for  them himself, of course. I'll tell this  man so. He shall como tomorrow morning., I'll receive him bore, and we will  say our last goodby. "  And Mrs. Corin's busy brain ^immediately went to work with the mise en  scene���������the gown sho would wear, the  attitude she would assumo, the words  she would nse���������ah, Wilfrid should remember that interview, sho was telling  herself, when the maid brought her a  card.   "Show Mr. Applegarth in here."  He bowed a littlo stiffly as he advanced, and certainly, if he was suffering from nervousness, Lucile's manner  wa������ not calculated to reassure him'  "Mr. Applegarth, will you bo good  enough to sit down?"  The young man took the seat she i>-  dicated, and began:  "Endicott'told me that you would be  kind enough to receive me, and"���������  , "May I ask what else Mr. Endicott  has thought fit to toll you?"  Applegarth looked up in "surprise���������it  was1rath'er"th"o"toiio~one_might'~nse~to"a"  presuming footman. a  "No donbt you are acquainted with  the whole story!" she continued loftily.  "I am aware that there are certain  letters of Endicott's in your possession,  which he thinks you would" bo glad to  get rid of, and as such things occasionally, miscarry iu the post ho fancied that  the simplest way would bo for you to  give thorn into my charge That is all I  know of or caro for in tho matter."  "Why did not Mr. Endicott come for  thorn himself?"  Applegarth,suppressed a smilo."  *    ��������� _  "It would not havo been quite wise,  would it?   Ho is not, I believe, a regular visitor at your house."  - "Neither aro you."  "True; butlani also a total stranger,  whereas ho was���������I .-.mean every ono  knows that you���������that is," ho concluded  hurriedly, "as you woro formerly acquaintances comments might bo mado  if ho were seen doing so unusual a thing  as calling upon you. "  "Oh, is Miss Mayso so jealous, then?"  Tho embassador became interested in  a 'minute spock upon his coat sleeve,  and made no reply.  ' "Here aro the letters," continued  Lucilo, after a pause, holding up tho littlo packet, "but you can tell Mr. Endi-  ��������� oott from me that unless he comes ' for  them himself they shall, not leave my  hands"���������  "But, Mrs. Corin"���������  "I am quite determined. Yourfriend  can call upon me tomorrow morning at  11:30.  I shall bo quite free then, and"���������  "He cannot possibly do that"���������  "Why not?" ,  "Ho has to travel up to the north this  evening with Mr. Mayse on business,  and he is particularly anxious that"���������  "What can it possibly matter to bim  whether the letters remain with me a  few days longer? Is he afraid that I  may address them to Miss Mayse by  mistake?"  Applegarth's hurried denial was a  trifle too emphatic not to havo a doubtful ring about it, and' Mrs. Corin was  too keen not to notice it. Ho was afraid  of her. Then he would put off tho journey and come to her.  "Let me entreat you, Mrs. Corin, to  reconsider the matter.

"If you would"��������� he began, when  suddenly a man's voice sounded without.  "Mrs. Corin is in the boudoir, yon  said?"  "My husband!" exclaimed Lucilo in  consternation.   "What shall I do?"  Applegarth looked in surprise at her  changed countenance. - Was the worthy  banker a veritablo Othello that sho appeared so alarmed as sho stood thore,  the lotter still in her hand. As the handle of the door turned sho looked round  wildly for some hiding place for them,  and then suddonly catching sight of a  pale green cardboard box, with a big  gold "Liberty" painted upon it, sho  flung them hastily into it, jammed down  tho lid and sank into a chair just as  Mr. Corin appeared on the threshold.  "Lucilo��������� Oh, I beg pardon," ho  added, stopping as "ho noticed Applegarth and glaring at him with au air  of suspicion. "I did not know that you  were engaged," he continued, addressing his wife, who was nervously fidgeting with her rings in a way that was  anything but reassuring.  "Havo I disturbed you?"  Applegarth stepped forward quickly.  "I was endeavoring to persuade Mrs.  Corin to purchase some of our newly  imported goods."  "Then"���������  "I am a traveler of Messrs; Liberty  &Co.,"he continued boldly, seizing  the box, while Lucile gazed at him with  wide open eyes.  "I seo,"said Corin without relaxing  his frown. "You've come about tho  Turkish embroidery, I "suppose. "  "Exactly," replied Applegarth  promptly.  "It seoms to mo that shopkeepers do  quite enough in>their showrooms to induce people to spend money usolegsly  without pestering them at home. "  "We ouly venture to call on our old  customers," explained the young man  apologetically, "and really this om-  broidcry is so very beautiful. "  "Yes, I dare say," interrupted the  banker, "but I particularly dislike that  sort of thing.  So gaudy and"���������  "Oh, excuse mo, I assure you the colors aro most beautiful l:  "My good man I" exclaimed Mr.  Corin, checking what looked liko a tendency to display his wares, "it's quito  useless. Mrs. Corin does not wish for  any of yonr embroidery."  "Oh, but I do, Gilbert," put in Lucile anxiously.   "I do very much."  ' 'Tbefc-i-~a 1 ovely~_trip"li_re~f 6r_*207''  interposed Applegarth at random.  "Twenty pounds!" cried tho banker.  "Twenty pounds! Perfectly preposterous. Certainly not. Wo don't want your  embroidery; wo won't havo it, do you  understand? Good morning."  "Good morning," replied'the other  quietly, taking up the bandbox.  "Oh, but won't you leave tho box?"  criod Lucilo hurriedly, "perhaps"���������  "No, no, tako it away; I.hato that  sort of thing lumbering.up the place."  Applegarth bowed, and the door  closed on him���������and tho box.. Tho noxt  momout Lucile's sobs, causod her hus-  baud to turn toward hor with astouish-  mout.  "What on earth is tho matter?"  A fresh burst of weeping was his only  answer.'  . "What's wrong, Lucile?"  "You ��������� aro���������so���������unkind���������to���������mc,"  camo brokenly from bohind tho flimsy  bit of embroidered muslin that did duty  for a handkerchief.  "Unkind? What nonsense! Bocauso I  won't let you throw away monoy.by  handfuls on mere nonsense?" '  "It isn't nonsouso. Besides you always say that���������you never do anything  to plcaso mo now!"  "My"dear child," ho said soothingly  as the littlo frame shook with hysterical emotion.  "Oh, I know, you  dou't care about  mo,now.   You think I'm silly aud friv-  'olous and"���������'  "I think you the sweetest little goose  in the world," ho ejaculated as he drew  her bauds away from her faco and looked into a pair of hluo eyes that possessed  tho rare and enviable quality of looking  all the prettier through a few tears.  "No, you don't," and a big drop that  had trembled on the eyelashes fell.-with  a splash upon his hand, and Lucile  knew by experience that tho battle was  won. "You never let mo have mv own  way."  "Is it about tho ball tonight?" he  asked coaxingly. "I didn't mean it, of  course.-'  "It isn't that," she said, .with a shako  of the head, and only half yielding to  his encircling arm.  "Surely you wouldn't cry about tiie  .mbroidery, darling?"  "I did want it so much, and"���������  "You silly child! Woll, dry tho toar.-  You shall havo it. Wo'll send aftor tho  man at once. Ho can't havo got vory  far, or I'll go round to Liborty's myself.  Will that do?"  Boforo Lucilo could answer, however,  tho maid appeared at tho door holding  tho fatoful green box.  "Please, madam, tho gentlor-ian said  that perhaps tho box had hotter bo left  till the firm's cart called for it. "  "There, isn't that lucky?" said Mr.  Corin as he smilingly placed the box on  his wifo's lap. "Now. you've-got all  you want."  * * * #   -     * #  But having taken out cvory soparato  piece of embroidery several times Mrs.  Corin did not think it so lucky. She  found that sho had by no moans got all  sho wanted, and whilo sho cried with  rago Wilfrid Endicott aud his friond  shouted with laughter.

B.C.  NORWAY IN KOOTENAY.  Messus. Mii.i>kll and "Uiilestad,  the two Norwegians who came to look  at the land of the Kootenay: llecUina-  tion Company with a view to establish  a settlement of their fellow countrymen there, returned to Nelson on  Tuesday. Mu. Mikdi'i.l, who has had  a great deal to do with Norwegian  Colonies iii various parts of the world,  expresses himself as being much  pleased with the land in thi> Upper  Kootenay and hopes to be able to buy  some of it for his friends. He says too  that there are many little spots he has  observed about our hills were a Norwegian would gladly set tie. There are  places of this kind where the frugal  Norseman would make what would  seem to him a good living while the  average British settler would not. look  at them. Mb. Miedell also spoke of  the upland meadows, many of which  exist in the mountains. These afford  excellent summer pasturage and arc  just what the Norwegians are accustomed to. On the whole the two  gentlemen are much pleased with their  trip and were charmed with the situation of Nelson, which they, said reminded Lheni very forcibly of their  home by the JIardangei' Fiord in Norway. The similarity was further increased by the excellent Nelson beer,  ���������with which our visitors seemed especially pleased. c  It appears that many colonies of  Norwegians, attracted by the glitter-  promises of the American Government,  have from time to time Mocked to the  Western States, where many of theni  are at present in great destitution and  misery. Hearing of the success of  their friends at Bella Coola on the  coast, those who are able are flocking  there. It is a trait of Norwegian  character that they follow each other  rather than strike out new lines for  themselves. It is therefore very probable that we may have several settlements of these most desirable colonists  in British Columbia before long. They  occupy and cultivate land that no one  else would touch and they keep mainly to themselves and do not interfere  with other peoples affairs. They detest mining and have a sort of instinctive idea that the whole profession is  uncanny, nor have they a high opinion  of the people who follow it for a living.  . But at the same time' they would pi p-  hably not hesitate to sell theni their  milk or butter, and that is,just what  we want them for, to save ns from the  pain and grief of always having to eat  the canned abominations that do duty  for dairy produce in this district.  A  SPECIMEN MEMBER.  "Uncle" Thomas McGuhevy is  again seated on the Benches of the  House of Commons at Ottawa. It will  be remembered that the outcome of  the disclosures of dishonesty on the  part, of member- of the Conservative  party some four years ago was the  trial of this gentleman and his conviction anil sentence to a term of years  iu gaol. There he hail to stop until  ihe worst of tho storm blew over. But  lately his friends, the present members of the Conservative Government,  finding themselves pretty strong again,  released the convict before his term  expired on a plea of ill health. He  was not, however, to ill too contest the  by-election for������Quebec West, which  has now the honour of being represented by this notorious ex-convict.  It is not to be supposed that his short  punishment has entirely altered his  nature. Will not he, and the crew of  which he was one, rather be tempted  to steal again with only such a very  light punishment before their eyes.  It will be an unfortunate day for Canada if -I-Gi-icevv and his gang get hold  of the strings of hei: purse again.  won! i-* probab'y sufficient niif.ilthe hulls  of the B itish ships sink over the horizon.  But it strikes na very forcibly that it was  just been use Nicaragua did not keep her  word that she has ��������� been called upon to  pay 11; 1 iii.,000. But in her defence it  may inirly be said, that the press of the  Um ���������-.! Slates in their irresponsible liowl-  iugs led her ou to expect help whence no  help was ever meant to come.  In connection with the Nicarnguan  matter we notice' that the ''harsh conduct" of Capt. French of the lioyal Arthur, who was appointed governor of  Corinto during the occupation is alluded  to. The facts were that two messengers  came, apparently from the Nicaraguan  govern meu t, to the Italian Consulate at  Corinto. and then scut a message asking  tho British Governor to wait ou them.  In the language of the country this was  cheek. . British Governors do uot go  about at the beck and call of everybody.  A British Governor in his couutry, directly represents the Queeu and yields precedence to no one except Her Majesty  herself. Now we happen to be personally  acquainted with Capt. French. We have  known him a good many years and can  vouch for his being anything but harsh.  On the other hand he is the soul of good  nature, a favourite in the service and  everything that an officer aud a gentleman should be.  KODAK   AGENTS.  .imal-iir Work Heveloped.  IMiolntcniHliie.

Whether we are.right or wrong in  estimating the amount of lead used in  Canada our contemporary is completely "off" in its attempt tp answer our  argument. To begin with it docs not  matter a pin whether the amount is  f-,000 or 10,000 tons, Kootenay's output  will far exceed both, and the $7*JO,000  two or three times over will be spent,  just the same amongst our own people.  We think it a great pity that our  contemporary cannot argue out; a  question on fair grounds, but for lark  of knowledge and sound reasons is obliged to make spiteful,remarks. The  old saying, "When you have, no case  abuse the pther side'" applies perfectly  Our contemporary fails entirely-to  make out a case so it sets in to abuse  ourselves and the Mail. It "says inso  many words that we would rather see  the men of other countries employed  than our own men. Which is a palpable absurdity. The gentleman who  conducts our opposition journal is  generally credited with the possession  .ofsonie brains. But either he did not  ���������write the paragraph we mention himself or'else his reputation as a brainy-  one falls to cpieces.. Everyone but a  fool knows that abuse is hot argument.  It is the last resource  of the ignorant,  " the spiteful and the pigheaded. This  statement is ridiculous on the face of ib.  Do we not live by the district as much  as he does? Do we not depend for our  existence on its well doing and have  we not shown over and over again  that to push its interests is our one,  object? To insinuate, then that we  prefer to see the men  of other places  '"' employed is sheer nonsense and nobody  knows that better than tbe editor of  the Tribune. Only he takes* his own  readers for a pack of fools, which they  NOTES AND COMM'EXTS.  Our Rossland namesake remarks  that we do not exchange with it. We  have looked through our letter file and  ransacked our memory and we are unable to find a letter or request of any  kind requesting us to do so. It is unusual for the elder newspaper to offer  to exchange, the request is usually  made by the junior. We do not suppose that either the New York Herald  or the London Times sent their paper-  to Rossland before they were asked.  The gentleman who edits the Rossland  paper is, we believe, a baby brought  up on the lap of a journal in whose  breast the milk of human kindness is  dry. He is now supposed to be able to  toddle alone, and has been allowed to  run a little paper let all hy himself.  When he gets older he will recognize  that we have been guilty of no "discourtesy" in not sending our paper to  him. He can have it willingly if he  likes and it shall be sent to him forthwith, but he should hesitate before accusing us of "journalistic discourtesies."  Americans as a rule are sound protectionists. Liviug as most of them do far  from a seaport, quite ignorant of the  prices of commodities in other countries,  and accustomed from their youth to the  enormous prices paid for everything in  the States, they do not feel where protection pinches. It was a liberal education to those of them who came to set up  busiuess establishments in lios'sland\  ���������They actually had to pay in cold cash  many hundreds of dollars on the goods  they brought with them. They felt the  shoe pinch. Another illustration may  not be out of place. British Columbia  pays SI'25,000 a month, one hundred and  twenty-five thousand dollars a mouth, a  month mind you, not a year, more in  Customs duties than she receives from  the Dominion under her agreement of  confederacy.  A telegram from Ottawa states that,  sweeping reductions in the public service will bo made and other means resorted to of reducing the expense of  the Civil Service. Until Canada puts  her Civil Service on the same footing  as that of other civilised nations, large  reductions may often have to be made  involving much hardship. As long as  the pets of member., of Parliament are  put in over the heads of men who are  already in the service, and long service and experience,go for nothing,  the service cannot expect to be anything but what it is/  International  Commission Co.

We are glad that our friend the  Prospector took our remarks in such  good part and we acknowledge the  retort courteous. The expression  which we are accused of using is a very  common one. Is is just a little play  upon words and contains ho disrespect  to the Queen at all. We may have  been wrong, but'we thought we delected a touch of derision at Her  Majesty in our contemporary's remarks  and it was that to which we took exception. The case has another'aspect.  Our-friends over- the border in-their  comic and other journals are forever  poking fun -at their own institutions,  hut it would ill become, a Britisher  who might, temporarily be sojui-riing  111 Lhe Stares t.o do the same. And 11  would be bad for him too. This also  applies exactly to citizens of the  United States who may happen to be  earning their living in pence and  security under the Union Jack.  It is something that we and our  paper occupy so much lime and attention across the road. Last week we  happened to be the fortunate recipients  of a long string of advertisements  from the coast. Our friend over the  way would have given his eyes for  them. They, are all genuine cash ad-  vert'i''Fe'ment'_;~pa^^ tbe  space they occupy and not spread out  like posters to cover' up some unsightly old wall. Not being able to chew  his quid in silence, our spiteful friend  draws public attention to the fact that  these are. what he calls foreign advertisements (of which he himself has few  or none) and attributes it to the fact,  that tin* circulation of The "Mixi_k is  iir London and Vancouver, not in  l-ootenay. Now here the great panjandrum is wrong. We have a very extensive -circulation, in Kootenay.  Whether il is as large as oiir contemporary's or1 not we do not know. But  we know this, that Tiik Minbii is read  very largely iu London and Vancouver'  and other places,,where itis the means  of attract ing a great'deal of public attention to the Kootenay country. We  have been at. some considerable pains  to bring this object, about, and w. are  proud to have achieved it.

Now. we make no doubt that  if a review is wanted in one of the  great Eastern dailies a copy is sent  marked "with the publishers compliments" iu the usual form. But because  forsooth we pioneer journals of British  Columbia do not as yet count our  reader's by the tens of thousands these  overbearing publishers think that they  can snub us and insult us at will. We  believe that if the journals of West  Kootenay were to give the book in  question a favourable review it would  sell several hundred copies here, but we  sincerely trust that none of our brother  editors will be lead into the trap that  is set for.them by this crafty and impertinent firm." '  We note that our friend the Spokesman Review copies our tables of the export of ore from this country, it would  add to the authenticity of the news and  to the character of the journal, if it would  acknowledge their source.
