In'the last week the Wobber group of  mines at Lakeview, Idaho, ou Pend  d'Oreille lake, has gone iuto this bauds of  a receiver, aud the principal mine build-  iugs have been destroyed by an accidental  fire.  Since the'passage of the new Montana  law requiring mining corporations to pay  a fee of S5.50 for each thousand dollars  subscribed capital, the miuing companies  iucorpoiated in that State are not inclined to pay from .1,000 to ������1,500 in  official fees, and the capital stock is  placed at a very moderate figure.  The silver smelter at Great Falls,  "Mont., will start up iu the next GO days.  A contract has been completed with the  M oui ton Company at Barker to ship the  accumulation of lead ore which has beeu  piling up on the damp for some time,  and the silicious ores of Neihart are  again beiug shipped to the Falls.  A bulletin by U.S. Geological survey of  the production of lead in the first six  months of 1895 shows a total of 100,000  tons, of which 88,000 were desilverized  lead and 18,000 soft lead. Seventeen  thousand five hundred tons of this were  refined in bond, the remainder being obtained from American base bullion. The  total is au increase of 3,500 tons over the  first six months of 189-1 aud 6,000 over  1893.  The New Northwest says more men  are employed in the mines of Butte than  ever before iu its history. The payrolls  of all the big companies are the largest  ever known, and more mouey is being  deposited iu thejbanks by laboring meu  than at any period since Butte became  the greatest mining town of the world.  Every smelter iu the district is taxed to  its full capacity and leasers are thereby  required,to wait for weeks for returns.  Intending leasers are scouring the hills  of the district for promising copper  properties, and everywhere there is bustle  aud activity. It will the greatest year in  Butte's history.  As the biggest "going" silver mine  the report of the Broken Hill Proprietary Company is of interest. In Lhe  two years ending May 31, 1895, the  property has produced 13,078,341 ounces  of fine silver, 10.829 tons lead and 8,425  ounces of gold. Dining the ti months  ending May 31, 1803,11,087 tons of bullion treated produced 3,773,539 ounces  oil fine silver and 2,914 ounces of gold.  The report every half year shows a  decrease in cost of production. For  the last, half year each ton of ore  treated cost ������2 lid; the previous half  year, ������2 3s 7d, which was a reduction  on the cost of the half year preceding  that. The net profits for the six  months of which the report treats were  ������-314,700 7s 8d.  The following from the Alaska News  is io the point: The paper's in all mining districts are urging miner's to contribute mining items for publication  in their columns. Miners should heed  such appeals, as they will find that. a.  majority of thc.miuing items appearing" in their local papers are copied in  the metropolitan journals. The miner  should understand that although his  local paper may have -a somewhat  limited circulation, it also has an exchange list, through which well written articles reach thousands of,readers  all over the world. The press is friendly toward mining interests, and, too,  does not overlook Alaska,' and no  charges are made for publishing facts  about the progress of mining enterprises.  '���������Jsimes~R~Mo.se���������a*-San���������Francisco-  mining man, has taken into partnership the Iving of Korea, and will work  the Lhusan gold mines iu that country,  about 180 miles from Seoul. ��������� Morse is  to employ the men, buy the machinery,  pay all demands out of the proceeds  of the mine, pay his partner one-fourth  ofthe net.profits, and keep the rest  himself, the partnership to continue 25  years. If half of what is told of the  richness of that Korean gold district is  true, Mr. Morse^has a good thing. In  his concession is also the privilege of  employing-Auiericah miners arid importing American made mining machinery free of duty and any property  acquired by Americans in connection  with the enterprise is not to be taxed.  Lu case the requisite capital is forthcoming and the mines turn out well  t he matter is of-considerable importance.  The Canadian nickel mines at Sudbury, Ont., raised 112,030 tons of ore  last year, of which 87,910 tons were  smelted. , The ore only contains a  small percentage of nickel however, so  that the amount of the nickel contained in this large quantity of ore was but  2,570 tons, which was accompanied by  2,7-lS tons of copper and some 31 tons  ot" cobalt. The cost of producing the  'nickel matter from the ore is heavy.  It is crushed and then roasted, which  gets, rid of some., of the * sulphur.  Smelting is effecting in water-jacket  furnaces, the charge containing eight  tons of roasted ore to a- ton of coke,  the result-being a matte containing  some 15 per cent.' of nickel. This  matte is not usuallyrefined iu Canada  but is exported as it stands. The  Vivians, however, Besseme-ize '.he  matte, raising the contents to .40 per  cent, of nickel before exporting it to  Wales. Other processes of reduction  are being experimented with," among  them an electrolytic process, which is,  however, handicapped'by the tariif on  the acids required.  VISIT OF  THE  13.   C.

Ld.,  wholesale flour, feed & grain, and proprietors National Oatmeal Mills; Victoria, Vancouver, Westminster, and  Edmonton Alta.

Elworthy, secretary to the  Board.  A  The party arrived at Revelstoke on  Monday in a special car from Vancouver and went down to Rossland in the  steamer "Nakusp." The general excellence oi" this magnificent steamer  seems fairly to have lifted the Victorians off their legs and they gave  vent to their feelings of agreeable surprise in the following testimonial  which was signed by every member of  the party and presented to Captain  Gore as the representative of the company.  Str._"akusp, Columbia River,  ' September 11, 1895.  Tothe President and Directors of the Columbia & ��������� Kootenay. Steamboat Xavigution  Company and t.o Capt. Gore and officers of  " the Steamer Nakusp :  We, the undersigned, the president and  members of thc, IJritish Columbia Hoard of  Trade of Victoria wish - to express our appreciation of the very high class' accoinmoda-  tionallorded by your Company to tho travelling  public and our acknowledgment of the attention we have received while on board the  .tablisp, and in this connection we would compliment your steward, Mr. Tomkins, upon' the  cuisineand table, which would be creditable lo  a lirst class hotel in a large .city and which wo  may be pardoned for saying came as a gratifying surprise to us upon the Columbia ltivor, a  channel of communication with the great  Kootenay country, which we have every  reason to believe will so rapidly develop as  _fully_to.jiist.ifyJt,h_e_enj.e_rprise_of __3ur_Coii.ii)u,n>i..  They arrived at Rossland on Tuesday evening and spent the next day  inspecting the principal mines ,which  lying as they do so close to the town  are readily reached by visitors who  have only a few Hour's to spare. Leaving Rossland late in the.afternoon the  journey was continued to Nelson, via  Robson, the capital- being reached  about midnight.  Mr-. Elworthy the secretary of the  Board is most energetic in collecting  information regarding the imports and  consumation of goods in the Kootenay  and he has acquired a mass of figures  which when, duly collected and published will be of the greatest use to  merchants and others who .contern-  plete sharing in thelnrge trade which  this section of the counti y'ol.ers.  On Thursday, which, was most un-  fortniiat.ly a wet day many of th_  Victorians, undeterred by "Lhe rain  visited the. Poorman mine. "Mr. Kirk  of Turner, Beeton ifc Co., who has lately acquired an interest in some claims  higher up Eagle Creek visited the property and expressed himself as well  pleased with his purchase.  Yesterday in the face of apouringrain  the Victorians visited the Silver King  and in spite of the drenching they received, which is no light matter when  you are CC0O feet above the sea, they  seemed to enjoy themselves, and came  down .in the evening with appetites set  keen toenjoy  THE BANQUET .    *  at which'they were entertained by the  South Kootenay Board of Trade. "This  took place at the Phajr Hotel.  Bv a  most  fortuitous combination  of   cir\  curnstances the Nelson hosts w������re able  to entertain the Hon. N.  Clarke .Wallace,   Controller "of Customs who arrived   by   train just   in  time to   be  present.    Among the guests, besides  the fourteen gentlemen from  Victoria  were Mr. George Ham, one of the best ]  known Canadian journalists and Mr. |  Haslam a prominent, resident of Prince !  Edwards  Island.     The South  Koote- j  nay Board of Trade was  represented >  by the following: R. E. Lemon, Pre.i- j  dent,   Cr.  A.  Bigelow,   Secretary arid I  Messrs.     Holt    Klliot,   Dover. Irvine, !  Madden. Johnstone, St.  Barbe,  Rich-'  ardson and Turner.    Mr. J.  A.  Mara,:  the'member for tlie district  was  also1'  fortunately in Nelson and became one  of the   hosts  taking the Vice chair.'  Mr- Lemon, President of the Board be-'  ing at the head of the table.  The dinner-was served'in excellent-  style and alibided another instance of  the very pleasant way in which people  are popularly supposed to rough it in  the mountains of Kootenay. Iri* fact;  the mala burden of the sp'eeches dur- \  ing the evening from the visitors was  an expression of wonder at the amount  not only of comfort but positive luxury in which they were kept from the  moment they set foot on the s. s. Nakusp up to the present limit of their  trip. As they are contemplating supplying this countiy with goods and  commodities of various kinds it may  Im just as well for them to remember  that the miner wants the best of everything, and is ready to pay for it.  We have no space at our disposal to  detail the various toasts and speeches  they produced which were numerous and some of them eloquent. We  think it, is the first time in the history  of Kootenay that a Minister of the  Crown from Ottawa has been heard  here. Last night Mr. Clarke Wallace  in responding to the toast of the Dominion of Canada gave- his audience  a taste of what oratory is like.  Speech making in Kootenay hiis not  been a flourishing industry, and when  it has broken out has beeu confined to  the narrow and stony trails of" provincial politics. Mr. Wallace revived  in his auditors minds the recollection  that they were British subjects, members of her glorious empire and that  our district here was fated to be  celebrated not only in the Province  or in Canada at large but would  became one of the brighest gems in  the British crown. Col. Prior, M. P.,  also awoke the patriotic throb in our  breasts when he spoke of the glorious  achievements of the British arms in  all parts of the world, feats in which  our brothers took part. The two  Boards of Trade, their officers and  members were toasted individually  and collectively, the "Law," the  "Ladies," and the "'Press" all came in  for the usual libations. Bumpers were  quaffed to individual guests, producing  from Mr. Haslam, a speech of something more than usual eloquence. His  reference to Imperial-Federation, a  subject little known in British Columbia and not at all in Kootenay, produced prolonged"applause. The ordinary routine was enlivened with some  songs of a comic nature and in the  course' of the evening two original  pieces of poetry were recited. Mr.  Flurnmerfelt first, donned the. laurel  crown and with the aid of Mr. Wm.  Brown, of the C. P. R., sang a ballad  which had been specially prepared for  the occasion.- (We write "prepared"  instead of composed on purpose.)  Though scarcely Homeric in grandeur  and hardly equalling Byron's best  efforts in versification, it aptly set  forth th.*' chief features of the venturesome trip of the Board of Trade so far.  The other "preparation" was evolved  from the depth of--Mr. John Elliot's  bosom, at least that is where he appeared Lo drag it from. It was a little  thing of the epic persuasion, relating  to the dastardly effort of the people of  Kaslo to steal the South'-' Kootenay  Board of Trade and the heroic and  successful efforts of the people of Nelson in defending their cherished, but  of late ruglected, treasure.  During theevening the Nelson Band,  which was stationed in- the main pari,  of the hotel, played pleasant music,  and the entertainment closed at about  I.:*, p. in. There was, unfortunately  no opportunity.of putting to the test  an invention of the host's which was  explained during the evening by Mr.  Fl'ummerfelt. Lt appears that Mr1.  Phair has had experience ��������� of the  saturnalia sometimes indulged in by  vestrys, parish councils, boards of  trade"and other sob��������� solemn bodies of  men. He, therefore, thoughtfully provided each of the guests with a small  check or ticket on which was printed  the number.-of his room. The guest  was requested simply to place, it in his  \vaistc"oat"pock"et"so-hat~as"Mr.-Phair  explained, "We may know where to  put you when the affair is over."  The party left on Saturday morning  iri the Ainsworth for Pilot Bay, the  Blue Bell and Kaslo.  ANOTHER INTERNATIONAL RACE.  The Buffalo Courier says, since the  recent speed performance on the.English west and east coast railroads between London and Aberdeen, which  showed the remarkable feats of covering 510 miles in 53S minutes, * the officials of the-New York Central have  been studying figures, and it is now  reported that a'movement is on foot to  prove that American locomotives can  make better time than the English .Myers. -  The best long distance run in tbe  United States was made by the Km-,  pire state express over the New- York  Central tracks in 1891, when 130. miles  were covered in -139.]. minutes, while  the actual'running time was nearly. 15  minutes less. This train has kept up  that remarkable speed in its daily runs  ever .since, and . notwithstanding the  fact that Lhe .Atlantic coast line and  Southern roads have both created records in long distance running,- the  Central's record is regarded as unrivalled -for the .distance ' covered.  The report is now current in railway-  circles that the time of the EmpLe  stiilte express is to be shortened near-ly  an hour1, in the verv near future.  A. NEW LEVIATHAN.  LOCAL   NEWS.  The new Bishop of New "Westminster  will visit this part of his diocese during  October.  Tenders are invited, to be in on Monday evening next at Revelstoke, for  grading the extension of the C. P. 11. line  from the AVigwam to the head of At row  Lake.  A great deal of the machinery of the  Silver King tramway have arrived and is  being hauled to the ground. The damage clone to the wagon road was quickly  repaired.  Practical joking passed its lawful  limits and became brutality the othei  night when Mr. Heathcote's little colt and  a dog were killed. The colt had its  throat cut in a cruel way and the. unfortunate dog was tied up to a verandah  post and apparently stoned to death.  By last night's train tbe Hod. N. Clarke  Wallace, Commissioner of Customs ; Mr  George Ham, the well known journalist,  and Mr. Haslam, from Prince Edward's  Island, arrived iu Nelson. Mr, Wallace  left for Kaslo this morning, but will return on Monday.  Messrs. H. M. Herrin & Co., of  Spokane, wholesale commission agents  aud dealers in fruits and sweet stuffs,  have opened a shop in Nelson between  Neelauds, photographers, and Shaw's  grocery. We understand that another  large grocery house from Spokane contemplates opening up in Nelson.  Some time ago we pointed out what  was very likely to happen at the Stanley  Street crossing, by the Bank of B. ,C.  Yesterday pedestrians who were not  armed (or footed) with gum boots had an  experience which they will remember.  The Government is to be asked to establish a ferry at this point.  Somewhat slow progress is being made  with the new Bteamer for the C. & K. Co.  She is finished up to the main deck all  except the planking. The staff has beeu  employed recently ou converting the old  Spokane into a barge. ,She is to be used  for bringing the railway cars for the  Kaslo Railway from Bonner's Ferry.  The Church of England Bazaar on  Wednesday last was, as usual, a great  success. The ladies of the church had  worked hard to get together a quantity of  articles which no doubt are useful, but  their use is a mystery to the male sex.  But the fairer and weaker sex buy them  up ravenously. It is greatly to the  credit of Nelson that a bazaar in aid of  any one of our churches is always  liberally patronized by members of all  the congregations.  Reports were in circulation in town on  Thuisdayofa case of "roiling" up on  Toad Mountain. The authorities informed  us that though complaints had been  made no positive information had been  given on which a warrant could be issued.  There appear to be two or three "tinhorns" in the camp and if they care to  accept a piece of advice they will get out  pretty quick.  The incoming Itrain from Robson- on  Weduesday night narrowly escaped a  very serious accident. 'Some heavy timbers loaded on a car in front of the  smoking car broke loose. One end struck  the ground and the other was driven iuto the smoking car, badly damaging it.  The train was going at high speed and it  is wonderful how it escaped being derailed.  The railway for the new Hall Mines  .Smelter; is commenced. It leaves the'  main line two or three hundred yards  beyond the station points and climbs to the  level of"theTTre-bins;~Th"e~'_trstJpart_is  entirely through0 rock0and the noise of  the heavy blasts has been lately very  plainly heard in town?

In point of tonage, speed and other  qualities, the steamship Great Eastevn,  now. a rotting hull in the Mersey, will  be eclipsed by the new steamship  being built for the Hamburg-American Packet Company, by the Belfast  linn of Harland & .Wolff. Even thc  Georgia tlie big new freighter of the  White Star line, will not be able to,  approach her in any respect.  The new  steamer which  the Ham- ���������  burg American line has contracted for  will' be one of the largest steamers- in '  existence.    She'will be able to  carry a '  dead weight of 13,000  tons.     Her dis-'  placement capacity, which will exceed  that ofthe Campania hy 15 per cent.,  is to be 20.000 tons.   The measurement  capacitY of the new steamer   will   be  about lil.'XX) tons,   at   the   rate   of   10  cubic feet per ton.   The length of the  vessel on the load water line is   to  be  5f'0 feet, which i- two feet longer than  the new   Whiti*.  -Star   line freighter  Georgic:    beam 152 feet, depth of hold  42 feet.   The Georgic has a beam of CO  feet and a depth of 10 feet.  In Nelson as everywhere else the  greatest interest is taken in this event  and the special editions issued by Tin*:  Miner containing the result of each  day's race were eagerly looked for. - It  is a feature of the development of the  Kootenay country that -it possesses  newspaper which publishes the result  of yacht races in New York within  few minutes of their termination.   -  The history of the way there came  to be ah American cup is this. In 1851  the schooner America went to Europe  and won the cup, which ever since has  borne that name. -The cup was a prize  given in the Royal Yacht .Squadron  regatta at Cowes. A Yankee yacht  contested against fourteen competitors, several larger than herself, but.  none rigged as she was. It is related*  that when the America hove in sight  at the finish, Her Majesty the Queen,  who was a spectator, turning to her attendant, asked : "Who wins?". "The  America,, Your Majesty," replied he  chief chamberlain "And who is second?" continued the Queen.' "Alas,  your Majesty," replied the lord chamberlain, "there is no second.".  The America afterwards sailed in a  match witli the 100 ton schooner  Titania in a strong breeze, and beat  her by more" than an hour'.  Commodore Stevens could not induce  anybody else to meet him and he fin-  allv sold the yacht to Lord Delanquere  for S3,OHO. Six years latter the-surviving members of the syndicate that  built the America presented the cup  that she had won from the British to  tlie New York Yacht club, in whose  hands it, hassinee'remainedas. a. trophy  for which any country can challenge  but which none yet has been able to  win.  , The contests that have issued are  briefly recapitulated thus : Lu 1870 the  Magic beat tbe  Cambria.    In lfc-71 the  the Mischief and Gracie beat the.Canadian centreboard sloop Atlanta. , In  18&5 the Puritan beat the Genesta. In  ISSG the Mayflower beat the.Galatea.  In 1887 the Volunteer beat the Thistle.  Jn 1893 the Vigilant beat Valkyrie II.  The first race came off on Saturday  last and was won by the Defender by  S minutes. The accounts of the race as  given by different papers vary a good  deal, but it seems that for 28 miles out  of the 30 the race was a good one, it  being difficult to tell at times which  was leading. When about two miles  from the winning post the yachts ran  into a fog (which probably means a  calm) and from this the Defender  emerged first. It is a pity that what  was apparently a good race up to the  time the fog came down should have  had such a fluky ending.  The second race on Tuesday last was  marred by a foul which produced a  protest. Just before the start the  yachts came into collision. The rigging of the Defender was strained and  she appeared to be sailing under difficulty. The Valkyrie won over .the  line by 47 seconds, as telegraphed to  us, but next day the*'protest was allowed. ' Defender had thus two races  to her credit.  On Thursday what is probably the  last international race New-Yorkers  will ever see took place and was won  by the Defender, who sailed over the  course alone. Valkyrie was so mobbed  by excursion boats that she was unable  to start. The Defender thus apparently wins the three races necessary to  secure the cup. The telegram, however, which reached , us on Thursday  evening concluded by saying that the  course of the next race might be  changed. Whether this means the  next race in years to come or whetlier  the Defender, unlike Cornell, will not  claim a race in which her opponent  cannot start we do not know, --  An American paper stated that the  Valkyrie certainly would not win, she  should be run down first. Something  of this kind, either accidently or purposely, seems to have happened and it  is unlikely that the English will again  go to the expense of building and  sending over.a boat whose chances of  success depend on the whim of some  screaming little steam tug out of New  York harbor. We remember that iri:  previous races the British yachts have  not been without interference of .a  similar class. <  On the whole, it is a pity that such a  fine contest should be so marred. The  whole world was stirred up about it  and the general feeling was one of a  true sportsman, let the best boat win.  lt was hoped that a clear course and a  fresh breeze would allow the match to  be decided in that manner. Great will  be the disappointment, not only to the  British, but also to all fair-minded  Americans, on the result.  A careful perusal of several accounts  of the race seems to show that the Defender was the better boat of the two.  Jn spite of being crippled she held her  own in good style on Tuesday.  In the race of 1885 the American  yacht Puritan accidentally fouled the  Genesta, Lhe English boat. When the  committee sent word to Sir Richard '  Sutton, the owner of the 'Genesta,  that Puritan had been disqualified and  that be could sail over the course alone  and win the race, he replied that he  did not want to win that way. He  wanted a race and.no walkover. He  showed himself to be a sportsman.  NEWS   OF   THE WORLD.  PROVINCIAL.

Ben Holding was a tall, handsome  young fellow, in a much better position than I, but I never envied him that  or anything else till he came botween  me and pretty Lizzie Meadows. She  was an orphan and lived with her grandfather, Luke Meadows, tho oldest fisherman in the village. Had she wished it  she might have had all the lads in.the  .place at her feet, but even in hor childish days, when her companions fought  for the privilege of buying toys or sweets  :for her or of'carrying her books when  she trotted to school, she would give  them no reward but a smile or a glauce  from her dark eyes. Her childish kisses  were reserved for me. To me only she  , told her childish secrets aud brought  her childish troubles.  But now she was a woman grown and  no longer lavish of her favor. She was  ��������� qniet and shy. And old Luke, being  naturally very careful of his treasure,  guarded her so jealously that it became  each day moro and more difficult to obtain speech with her. It was but seldom  now that I was allowed to look in at tho  cottage of a Sunday evening, as I had  been in the habit of doing regularly  from a boy. But that troublod me tho  less inasmuch as the pei-mission was  not granted to any one else.  At length, however, it began to be  ���������whispered about that J3en Holding went  very frequently to Meadows' cottage  and was doubtless paying attention to  his granddaughter. This was the more  surprising, as the young man had till  very recently been working at a placo  some 20 milos to tho north, and, to my  certain knowledge thoro was nothing  between the two when ho first went  there. His work must have brought him  in a good .round sum, for ho went fishing now in a boat of his own and had  taken a cottage all to himself, instead  of living in a singloroom or boarding in  a family, as was tho custom with the  young fishermen round about.  However, I gave little heed to such  gossip. Lizzie always greeted me with  a smile when we met, and. Meadows  was, if anything, rather more friendly  than he had beon for some time. -Moreover, if by chance I did spend an evening at the cottage, I nevor came across  "Ben Holding. He-usod to go by on Sundays on his way to tlie meetings of the  Plymouth Brethren, where he was a constant attendant, but ho never staid to  chat more, than five or ten minutes, an.d_|  what he said to the girl all the world  might hear.   ������.  I went down, to Meadows' place one  Sunday afternoon with the intention "of  telling Lizzie how it was with me and  of asking hor to be my wife. It would  be.the.best way, I thought, of putting  an end to the talk of the village, which  did not please me, though it caused mo  no anxiety. I had lately had a raise in  .my wages- and was promised a further  increase at .the end of the year, so I  hoped to satisfy Meadows as to my prospects. , * - o " ;  1 I cannot tell if he suspocted my'in-  tention, but it was-in vain I sought for  an opportunity of speaking to Lizzio  tliat evening. Meadows talked without  ceasing, and Lizzie-herself seemed moro  occupied than" usual. Instead of sitting  still she flit-ted around tho kitchen,  doing ono thing or another, now reaching down plates from tho topmost shelf  of the diesser? then bending over tho fire  where, contrary to her custom on a Sunday, she had two or three pots to attend  to. I was so absorbed in watching her  movements that I fear: I made but an  indifferent list"iier to Meadows' old  time yarns. It'was a delight to me to  note tho graceful turn of her figure, to  watch the color deepening on her cheek  till her - delicate ear looked like a roso  leaf as it lay amid tho clustering rings  of her .dark hair. Lizzio laughingly  -turned us out at last, saying she wanted  to .set the kitchen to rights and we were  in the way. I offered to help her, but  the old man would.not hear of my doing anything and carried mo off to the  porch to smoke a pipo with him.  We had not sat thero long before I saw  Bon Holding in the distance, evidently  making his way toward us. So little did  I fear him that I was actually glad to  see him, thinking he would take off  Meadows' attention- and give me a  chance of a word with Lizzie. But I  soon saw that was not to be. Aftor shaking bauds with us Ben strode  into the  laEo no'p'arfln. Lizzie asked'question  after question about Holding's cottage  and displayed such an intimate knowledge of its arrangements that it was  clear to mo tho subject had been often  discussed betweeu them. What could  this mean but that the houso was furnished for hor as Holding's wife? Meadows smiled placedly and looked ou  with au air of approval that well nigh  maddened 1110. I turned cold and sick,  but though I never spoke and hardly  touched a morsel on my plate they paid  no hood, but continued to laugh and joko  over their own affairs. At last I coulcl  stand it no longor, and rising from tho  tablo abruptly said it was time to go  ! homo. Then for the first timo Lizzio  scorned to perceive my agitation, for  sho blushed and looked'confused.  "Aro you going cut tomorrow,  George?" Meadows asked as I bado him  good night.  "Of course,'; I said briefly. "Why  not?"  "I don't liko tho look of tho weather," ho explained. "I was just going  to say so when Ben camo up this evening. I an* not ono to counsol any man  to stay at home when .hero's work to be  done, but industry is ono thing and  rashness is another. It's blowing up  for a gale, tako my word for it, lads.  There'll bo mischief tomorrow, I warn  you."  "What then?" I rejoined sullenly.  "'Twon'tbe tho first gale I've been  out in, uor tho last, may bo. And if it is  nobody will caro."  "No man has a right to throw his life  away," urged the old man solemnly.  "What's como to you, George? That's  not like you. I hope you will take my  advice, Ben, anyway, for the Mermaid  is not seaworthy. You'll ruo tho day  you bought her, if you don't'look out. "  "We'll see it how it is in the morning, " Bon said hopefully.  "Anyhow, you can't say nobody  cares,"I heard Lizzio whisper. Aud  then sho went on, half to herself, "And  Georgo has uo right to say such things. "  I went out, and to my surpriso Holding followed me. I hurried on, thinking to avoid him, but he soon caught  mo up. The sky was cloudy and dark, :  and on one sido was an irregular streak of  grayish yellow light where the moon  was struggling to break through. I saw  no cause for old Luke's warning, nor  did Holding, it appeared, <for he began:  "What can Meadows mean, Powell? It  is a dirty night, no doubt, but 'twill  clear before morning, I should think  What say you?"  "I think so, too," I answored between my set teeth.  "But he is not one to croak, and he  is very rarely out iu his predictions,"  Ben continued. "Would it not be wiser  to stay on shore?"  "Do so, by all means, if you are  afraid, " I replied, with a sneor. "You  are your own master. " ",  The taunt stung him, I could see,  dark as it was, but he kept his temper  and only said: "I doii't deservo that,  George, and no ono knows it better than  you do. What ails you tonight?'!  " 'Taiu't your business. "  "Aro you in trouble? Can I do anything?"  "You cau hold your tongue. "  "What wilLLizzio say?"  "She'll care as littlo  as you ,or any  one else.    How dare you talk of Lizzio  to mo?. Go your own way and let me go  mine."  "Nay, ��������� Powell, listen," he began,  but I would not stay to hear. I broke  away from him and ran down a narrow  lane that led to my lodging. I was boiling over with wrath, and his coolness  irritated mo past all bearing. What  right had he to bring in Lizzie's name?  Ho had stolen her from me. Let that  content him. And how. Meadows had  deceived mo! Ho knew, no man,better,  -what-took-nio-to*his-cottage.-and-yeti*.e  encouraged Ben's suit on the sly. I felt  as if I could havo throttled hi*m.%  - In such a frame of mind it was not  likely I should sleep, and. as a fact I  spent the night in walking up and down  my little'room revolving in my mind-  one plan of revengo after another. Holding and Lizzio should never 'como together if by fair means or foirl I could  prevent it. Who would have thought,  I reflected bitterly, that Meadows was  so mercenary? Because Ben had a boat  of his own and two men in his pay,  while I worked with Tom Ford at a  weekly' wage, ho was ready to throw  mo over. I felt glad. I had taunted  Holding with being a coward. Now ho  would go out in tho morning, whatever tho weather, and who could say  what might not happen? His boat, tho  Mom-aid, was, every one knew, a rot-  toii tub. In his anxiety to rise above  his fellows ho had bought 'her without  consulting any ono and had beeirgriev-  ously cheated.in tbo bargain. Lizzie's  sweet eyes seemed to plead for him."  They haunted me, turn whero I would,  but I.would not let them influence me.  If her" lover perished iu tho waves, she  deserved all the pain it would give her,  the little flirt. " But, however matters  turned out, no oue could impute the  blame to me. - ''  Before sunrise I was up and on my  way to the beach.   The morning broko  gloomy and dull. -The clouds were rag-  -**ed and   torn   at  the edges, telling-of  wind, but tho' sea - just then was calm  i enough.    Tho  barometer at tho  coast-*  j guard station was lower than it had been  ��������� for weeks.   Still, I had gone out many a  i day moro stormy looking thau this, and  . I made up my uiiud that if Ford wished  ���������to go I would say nothing to dissuade  him.    It was not likely ho would caro  i to stay ou shore.   He was a bold, deter-  1 mined fellow, and 'knew his boat, the  ; Vixen, to bo ono of the stoutest and best  i built in the place.  mado no 'answerinir  turned away  si���������H.,  Wo got ou much as usual till about  3 o'clock in tho afternoon. Then I saw  Meadows' prediction would,be verified.  Thunder rumbled in the distance, and  the waves were high and sullon. Suddenly tlio wind sprang up, aud it was  all wo could do to shorten sail beforo it  was down on us. Ford said it was a  squall, and wo had seen tho worst of it,  but ho was wrong, as the event proved.  The gusts of wind followed each other  fast. Every wave threatened to engulf  tho Vixen and her crew, and it soon became a strugglo i'or life. For my own  safety I oared little. Lifo had ceased to  havo any attractions for mo; but, remembering Ford's wifo and littlo children, I worked manfully to  boat on hor course.  good glass of g:  EC'-V'iK.y'-'Bi *���������:������������������_  walk I insisted  a_.;.ah excuse  that  or helped to steady my  fcuou as 1 was .able to  on going home, giving  wanted to turn in.'  roof was in-  "Who would havo thought it would  blow liko this?"

' Don't cry, my girl. Ho will bo all right  in tho morning.

Ford was a man of few words.  As we took our seats I  saw Holding  and his men gettin-; in their nets and  preparing to follow us.  So, then, ho had '  not  taken  the old man's  advice.   He i  nodded to mo as we passed and smiling- ,  ' j ly waved his hand, but I kept my eyes  1     _-������.���������'��������� ��������� j  to do."  "You should have told me that, "said  Ford gravely. "It's never safo to go  agin old Luke���������ho knows the weather  signs better than any man. I say, George  Powell," he went on, looking keenly at  me, "is Holding to carry off pretty Lizzie? Ho was at tho cottage last night,  my wife says. Ho seems to bo there  most days.''  "I can't toll you," I replied. "It's  nothing to me or to you either."  "Nothing to me certainly," returned  Ford. "But the folks used to say she  was for you, lad."  "Doesn't look* much like it,"was my  somewhat equivocal reply.  "'Pou my soul, you are right,"  growled Ford as another great wavo  broke over us. "But if that is what you  mean, Holding's chance is 110 better  than your own, or as good Lookl Isn't  that tho Mermaid yonder?"  It was not easy to distinguish anything, for.my eyes wero full of salt water, but after a bit I managed to mako  out Holding's boat, with threo men on  board of her, being driven before tho  gale. It was madness on his part not to  have put back hours ago, for he knew  well enough how little tho Mermaid was  fitted to encounter such a sea as this.  For a few minutes the wind lulled, and  v?e camo within speaking distance.  "George," Holding shouted as soon  as he could make himself heard, "Meadows knew what he was about last night,  sh? I was a fool not to tako his advice.  I shall never sot foot on shore again."'  Ford stood up, a rope in his hand, and  called to him to conic on board tho Vixen. But Holding shook his head. Hi  was seaman enough to know that to attempt such a thing would in all probability swamp us all, and ho would not  risk it.  0 "Toll the folks you saw us," ho said  calmly, though his faco was whito as  death. "Bid them goodby. I know  Meadows will look after my little girl.  God bless her! And you, George���������Lizzie"���������  His voice' was lost in tho roar of tho  waves, and indeed my heart beat so fast  I should hardly have made out his words  in any case. A flash of lightning, moro  vivid than any wo had had yet, half  blinded mo, and at the same moment  wo shipped a sea that nearly washed us  from our rrr.tr*. When wc had succeeded in bailing out the water aud were  able to look about us, I sought in all directions for tho Mermaid, but she was  nowhere to bo seen. I cast myself down  at tho bottom of the boat, overcome with  horror. To havo my rival' thus suddenly  swept from my path was more than I  could bear. Last night I would have  hailed with joy anything that severed  him from Lizzie. Now I felt like a  ~mu"rderer."~It"wasirwh"b"h'ad*lur"ccrh"im"  to his doom and wrecked the life of the  girl I loved. I tried to pray for God's  forgiveness, but no words' would como.  In my misery I would havo thrown myself into the water, but I had no strength  to move. .Ford called to me, but his  voico fell on deaf ears. I lay stunned  and motionless.^  1 must have remained iu that stato for  some timo. " Ford thought" I had" beon  struck by lightning, but" it was out of  his.powcr to help me. It was ull.ho could  do, single handed, to guide our little  craft.'* Fortunately for us both, the storm  began to abate, or we should never havo  reached tho shore.  lt was dusk when we landed, and the  'harbor lights flashing- into my eyes  roused mo from tho lethargy into which  I had fallen. A crowd was assembled on  the beach, eager to welcome tho friends  they had given up1 for lost. I soon mado  out tho tall figure of Mcaduws, with his  granddaughter clinging to him as if for  support,.and I bowed my head in agony  at the thought of the fatal news I had  to give her. Suddenly a" voice sounded  in my"ear, clear and" sharp abovo thu  rest, and I started. It was a voice I had  never expected to. hear again in this  world. ���������   ���������  "Here they are at last I",Ben Holding  cried joyfully. "Lizzie,look up. Howell  is safe, thank God! He is hero!"  I staggered toward ' them, dizzy and  faint.   The joy was overpowering.    By  what miracle had Holding escapcd.with  his life?  He seized mo by.-tha hand and  drew me forward.   Lizzio said something  I could not hear and would have fallen  to tho ground had not some one caught  her and laid her, white as a lily, in her  grandfather's arms. Then ensued a babel  of voices.    All the fishermen in the village seemed  thronging  to shako hands  with me and  Ford.

As I haven't a creature  belonging to me, I came to Lizzie for  help, for what do I know of how .things  ought to look or what a girl likes to  have about her? But you've no call to  be jealous, my friend. Lizzio is yours  heart and soul. I've thought so many a  day, and now I'm sure of it' I confess  I pretended to mako love to hor last  night, but it was only a bitof fun. Will  you forgive and forgot?"  What a relief thoso words were to me!  I tried to tell him of all the wicked  thoughts that had filled my brain and  to ask his pardon for them, but he would  not let mo spoak and presently went  away, leaving me alone with Luke  Meadows.  I could do no less than confess the  state of my heart to the old man, though  I was scarcely in a conditiou to talk coherently. But Lizzie's grief and terror  during tho storm had softened him, and  instead of repotting me, as I feured ho  would do, he smiled as ho said it was  true ho had vowed never to part with  his little girl, but if I liked to como and  live at the cottage I might marry her  whenever I pleased, and tho sooner the  better.  But that happy day was not to dawn  yet awhile. Tho next morning fouud me  unable to rise from my bed, and many  weeks passed bci'oro I could leave it  again. Through tlie fever that followed,  Holding nursed me liko a brother, even  putting off his own wedding rather than  leave mo in strange hands, and I verily  belicvo it was owing to bis watchful care  tliat I recovered my health, as it was to  him I owed tho restoration of my peace  of mind.  Winter had passed away, and the  spring flowers wero peeping from their  hiding placo in the grass before Lizzie  Meadows and I woro man and wifo. All  Lizzie's old playfellows camo to tho  church to seo her married and wish her  happiness with tlio lad she had chosen,  but no ono's word touched me so nearly  as did thoso of Ben Holding:'  "Ah, Ben," I whispered as I wrung  his hand, "I don't desorvo my happiness, and no one knows that better than  you do."  Of course he assured me it was all  nonsense, ��������� and I must not let such  thoughts trouble1 mo, but I know woll  that tho recollection of that terrible day  will never fado from my memory.���������  Chambers' Journal.

In spite of-the British rule of believing a man innocent until he is  proved guilty the Coast papers make  no bones about alluding tothe defalcations of the late Registrar of the  Supreme Court at Victoria. Without  for one moment prejudging the case it  may 1 easonably be taken as agreed,  for the purpose of this note, that embezzlement has taken place. _  The occasion is one which emphasises  very strongly the necessity for civil  service reform. Nov is the necessity  confined to the Provincial service.  That of the Dominion equally requires  purification and reorganization on a  modern basis.  Australia taught tlie world how to  vote by ballot, and other useful political lessons may be learnt from the  great group of British Colonies in  the Southern Ocean. We Canadians  must not be too proud to take, a leaf  out of the book, of a community so  much younger than ourselves. We  have been held in the trammels of  ancient customs while our young  cousins in tlie Southern hemisphere  started with a clean sheet. Fifty years  ago they found practically a barren  island of continental dimensions. They  were given a constitution to do what,  they'liked within their own borders.  They have formed themselves into a  nation with a population as large as  that of Canada. They have the largest  trade in the world in proportion to  their numbers and their laws and  methods of administering them are  models to the world.  One of the first things they found  out.was that the old system of building  up a civil service out of old hulks, inexperienced teiiderfect or the pampered - relatives of politicians war-  useless and expensive. ' It did no one  any good. They, therefore, as quickly  as they could, pensioned off the superannuated, reduced the others to grades  to which they were suited aud opened  the doors of the service only to cadets.-  ���������It is impossible now in most of the  Colonies to enter the civil service after  a certain age has been arrived, at,  which is, we believe, 15. The cadet  passes an examination and enters the  lowest grade. All in that grade receive  equal salaries.   And so he rises grade  ~by-grirde"i_ntir'l-e^blR7o"i^^  secretary or one of the 'officers of the  highest grade.   After so many years  ��������� service he is entitled to a handsome  pension. As long as he does his work  properly he cannot he removed. He is  beyond the -reach of politicians.  Threats and blandishments of members of Parliament break oft" himlike  waves at the foot of a rocky cliff. He  does his work*' and cares naught for  them. That is the kind of thing we  want in this country.  One of the rules of the Civil Service  is that no officer may mix himself up  in-.public commercial affairs. The  common sense of this is evident and  -has recently received a most practical  example.  Amongst other" oflicers to be found  in theiar South is the Public Trustee,  into whose care are put all public trust  funds of every kind and of whose services the public are at liberty to avail  themselves. The Public Trustee never  dies, never leaves his office", is ubiquitous iri his Colony and the ' State  .guarantees, his integrity. The individual may bolt.with cash or securities,  but his mere absence from the Colony,  automatically appoints  his successor  . and the stolen property is restored by  the State. * :  It is scarcely needful to add that if a  person holding the office of Public  Trustee was krrown to be dabbling in  stone quarries, government contracts  or  other investments of a gambling  '.- nature he would "not hold his appoint-'  '. ment for a single,minute.  The present is an excellent opportunity of inaugurating.reforms and   we  trust it will not. be neglected. -  load. "The modern requirement for1 accuracy determined a cord to mean a  pile of billets of wood laid side by side  and measured 8 feet long by 4 feet high  and 4 feet broad. The cord contains 128  cubic feet. That is the measurement  of a cord throughout the British  Dominions. It obtains in the old  country, it is used all ��������� over Australia  and is the accepted measurement in  Canada. In the case before the court  some attempt was made to set up a  local custom, involving the u.e of the  word "rick," as law. Now Nelson is  scarcely old enough or important  enough yet to change a time honored  measurement which obtains the world  over. The word rick has absolutely no  legal or binding definition. One man  may mean one thing by it, another  man may mean something quite different. In contracting, therefore, for  wood of any other length than 4 feet  itis necessary, to state precisely the  length and how much of it is required.  We believe that it is erroneous to apply  the word cord to anything but a heap  or pile of wood of the dimensions above  quoted.  Hitherto it has been customary here  to regulate the price of fire wood, not  by the quantity of material supplied  but by the work required in cutting it.  For instance, a pile of billets of 3-foot  wood measuring 8 feet by 4 would cost  as much as a regular cord in which the  billets are 4 feet long, the cost of getting it out being [practically as much.  A pile of wood measuring a true cord  but composed of billets only one foot  long each would cost more than an  ordinary cord, because it would require  three more cuts. In the --future, as  wood gets scarcer and is not to be  got for the picking up, the actual  amount of the wood purchased will  have to be taken into account, and if  "short cords" or cords composed of so  many "ricks" are contracted for, it  will have to be very clearly understood  between buyer and seller what is  meant.  NOTES AND COMMENTS.  A telegram from Europe announces  that in consequence of the activity  of the Nihilists the young Czar  has to be guarded as carefully as  his father and grandfather were.  The only way the unfortunate  monarch-can put himself outside the  danger of instant assassination is to  grant a constitution to Russia. He can  do it with a stroke of his pen, but he is  so completely in the hands of his  nobles that he dares not do it. To an  outsider' it looks as if he could snap his  lingers at all the dukes and princes  and counts if he was ��������� to give a constitution to Russia and her freedom to  Poland.  Th. "Victoria Daily Times in a leading  article entitled "Mining Law Confusion" says : "From reports of cases  iu court, and from comments thereon  which appear in inland papers it must  he concluded that the mining laws are  much in need of clearing up." So much  for Victoria's knowledge of British  Columbia's greatest industry. The  Times is quite right in its conclusion.  They do want clearing up a bit. But if  they are left, to politicians who are as  ignorant of the matter' as the Coast  press their attempts at clearing them  up will only make them worse confounded. A committee of men from  the mining districts who have spent  years working with these terrible laws  is what is wanted to do the clearing up.  In spite of the fact that they are  supposed to have done away with all  the pomps and vanities connected with  _roy.i_lfcy_t.h.e__Am.er:icar)_puhlic_likes_tQ.  read nothing better than long accounts  of royal personages. A recital of what  they eat and drink and what they  wear seems to convey the greatest  pleasure to these hungry republicans.  And they get it. The correspondents  of their papers fill column after column  with lies about royal people. Only the  other day the San Francisco Examiner  had a column of the most preposterous  rubbish about the little sonof the Duke  of York. Amongst other inaccuracies  it mentioned that he was a member of  the House of Lords. The American  press seems to strive its utmost ".to  give its readers a wrong impression  about British matters.  ���������    CORD WOOD.  A cord of wood is one of the oldest  of known measurements and yet its  exact meaning required definition if  the local Small Debts Court.  A cord in its original meaning was  as much as a man could carry slung in  the bight of a rope or thong. That is  what it mpant, say, 1,(XX) years ago.  Later when vehicles were "substituted  for men's backs it came to mean a  When Mr-. Gladstone was in power  wandering Britons in foreign countries  had to look to themselves. The Liberal  leader was neither respected or feared  by foreigners. Under his regime Englishmen could be -jumped upon with  impunity. With Lord Salisbury in  power things are different. Foreign  nations, particularly where they come  into contact with our colonial possessions, have to toe the line. The United  States is aware of this and it is gravely  suggested in some of their leading  journals that in places where the  Uuited States Consuls have not much  backing of any outward and visible  kind, that the sous of Uncle Sana should  he put .under the protection of the  Union Jack. That they.will be received  with open arms is a certainty and it  may be hoped that in return for  protecting her sons in the <far corners  of the earth America will cease from  villifying Great Britain upon every  possible occasion.  times are very bad, as they have been,  it is easy to get folks to follow a cry,  but when good times return they are  so busy reaping the golden harvest  that they have no time to listen tn  theorists, whose theories have lost half  their point. For us in Kootenay, producers of silver, we must congratulate  ourselves if we can only get the price of  silver to stick where it is.

In  spito of the wild talk of irresponsible  politicians or the still wilder writing of  nair-brained journalists, she must  wait on Germany and Great Britain in  the matter. ^But popular interest in  the subject is dying mit oven in the  United States. Only those who are  personally and directly interested are  struggling to keep the issue alive.
