THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.  Tbe full text of the Presidents message  tia delivered to Congress at Washington  on 3rd December occupies 12 ordinary  newspaper columns. It gives au epitome  of the history of the world as far as it  concerned the United States for the last  12 mouths'.' As far as we are concerned  the only important part of it is that  which refers to Great Britain and Venezuela. This practically asserts the existence of the Monroe Doctrine and has  a very belligerent tone.     We give it. in  full:  "it beiug apparent that the boundary  dispute betweeu Great- Britain and the  republic of Venezuela concerning the  limits of British Guiana was approaching an acute state, a deiiuite statement  of the interest and policy of the Uuited  States as regards tbe controversy seemed  to be required both on its own account  and in view of its relations with the  friendly powers directly concerned.  lu July last, therefore, a despatch  was addressed to out' ambassador at  London for communication to the  British Government in whielrthe attitude of the United Stales-was fully  and distinctly set forth. The general  conclusions therein reached and formulated are in substance that, the traditional and established policy of this  government is liniily opposed to a  forcible increase by any European  power of territorial possessions on this  continent; that this policy is as well  founded in principle as it. is strongly  supported by ^numerous precedents;  thilt as a consequence the United  States is bound to protest against the  enlargement of , area of British  Guiana in derogation of the rights  and against the will of .Venezuela; that  considering the disparity in strength  of Great Britain and Venezuela, the  territorial dispute between them can  be reasonably settled only by friendly,  impartial arbitration and the resort to  such arbitration should include tlie  whole controversy and is not satisfied  if one of the powers concerned is per-,  milled   to   draw   ;m    <U'b_itrary_ line  MiYoiigli "ttteTemforyui debate a ml To'  declare that it will submit to arbitration only the portions lying on one  side of it. In view of these conclusions,  the despatch in question called upon  the British Government for a definite  answer to the' question whether it  would submit the territorial controversy between itself and Venezuela in  its entirety to-impartial arbitral-ion.  The answer of the British Government  has not yet been received, "but is expected shortly, when further c-ommu-  cation on the siibject will probably be  made to Congress.  ROSS-AND.  (From our own Correspondent.)   ,  The bond on the Cliff" which fell due  ou Dec. 1st lias uot been taken up by  Mr. F. S. Barnard, tilthough the extra  stall* of men that had been put to work  had made a great deal better showiug,  even beyond thecxpeetationotthe'owners^  The so-called jumpers, Morrison and  Camix-ius have been up before Justices  Newton and Topping on a fresh indictment for conspiracy, aud are now enjoying themselves in a quiet way in tbe  lockup :iwaiting some one to go bail for  them. Tits camp in general is very  pleased at this result, and a prospector  can now it is hoped hold his claim in  peace.   ,  The owners of the Zihir are very pleased tit the siowings on their property on  which they have lately been doing some  development work. They have a line  body of ore which assays as high as $50.  The Centre Star have now got their  machinery in place and expect to have  steam upearly next week, and will em-  ���������ploy a large force of men.  The Josie have sttuck a neworeschute  larger and better than any before, which  assays $100 and shows every sign of increasing in size.  TheLe Eoi is looking better than ever  and the quantity and quality continue  to increase in volume and value as greater depth is gained.  It is expected the water works system  will be iu Kossland befoie. the first of  January, and we will then feel safe as far  as lire protection goes.  The fire wardens have been busily employed lately inspecting chimneys, flues,  etc. and have in many cases given orders  for immediate alteration of defects.  The Miners Union held a ball at the  Opera House ou Thursday last which was.  well attended. The room was most  elaborately decorated for ��������� the occassion,  and did gre,at credit to those whose artistic fingers had so altered the usual .barren aspect of this buildiug. Dancing was  kept up with great zeal till a very early  hour.  Rossland aud vicinity have beeu very fortunate this fall in the matter of weather,  so far about one foot of snow being all  that can be seen, aud the ore is still being hauled out on wagons.  Mr. Hill of Calgary, a mining expert  is now in the camp looking over some  properties ou behalf of au English company. -  Mr. IT. C. Innes of Vancouver spent a  few days iu town- aDd rurde a few-purchases on behalf of some clients of his  firm, limes, Bichards & Akroyd.  _lark Gilliam, superintendent of ihe  Bobt. E. Lee mine, was seriously injured  by au ure car dropping from a tuuuel 10  feet iiito the shaft in which Gilliam  was standing. The ear weighed 300  pounds. Gilliam received two bad scalp  wounds and was otherwise bruised. He  is now iu Dr. _3o\ves' hospital.  The Miners' Union of .Rossland, under  date of November 25, sent out the following letter to all of the mining companies  in the district: '" "We, the Rossland  Miners' Union, make a demand I'or-83.50  per dayiu all shafts, ami eight hours to  constitute a day's work in wet shafts.  Hoping to hear from you by Saturday,  as this demand takes effect on the 1st of  the month.    Respectfully yours.���������  -Q   ' Rossland Mineus' Union."  It is understood that as most of the  work. is   being .-don_e__by..._c___t:i_ic_t__thi.s  Speaking of the climate of the United Stales and its varieties in dill-rent  parts ofthe vast territory, the. Spokesman Review recently made the witty  remark "It is a large country. If you  don't see what yon want ask for it."  Hew infinitely more does this apply to  our country, by which we- mean the  British Empii.e, which is to a Britisher  very much what the United States is  to a Yankee. We are minded to make  tbist'emark because we have just ie-  ceived a letter from an old chum who  is now in Western Australia. He says  "The Blacks are very troublesome and  a prospecting party that I am interest-  in have just had their camels killed  and stores stolen by these gentlemen."  Camels and blacks and broad wastes of  burning sands. Towering mountains,  rushing rivers and rawhiding on hard  frozen trails, surely there is variety  enough to please anybody.

[From our own Correspondent.]  "Chas. Dr'oDin aud Wm. Douglas returned on Saturday from the "Needles,"  where they have been doing development.work on tbe 0 rvi hi which' they,  Captain Moore and Johu Vallance tire  interested. They report-the claim an  excellent proposition. Dronin expects to  to do mote work during the winter.  Wm. Huston returned last week from  Cariboo Creek, where he has been spending two months developing tho "Queen  of Cariboo,'" a claim located by-Jas. L.  Davis this spring, the samples of rock he  is showing lead .one to think that Mr.  Iiuvies is all right in his location.  -S. 0. Hendee, and John S. Byron of  the Nakusp, have sent Wm. Huston to  open up the "Excelsior" a claim in which  they ate interested at- the Needles.  The Stv. Nakusp made an extra trip  from the Wigwam on Saturday, with a  load of freight for this place and the  Slocan." -       '       "  The last of the cars for the N. & S.  railroad came iu on Friday. They were  one box and two coal ears, loaded.  The lower end of the wharf is at pres-  eut covered nearly with coal brought ,in  for use on engine No. 1, at the Sandon  end of the road.  The Hotel Nakusp is - expected to  change hands this week.  John S. Byron has takeu the bar on  the Str. Lytton,'iu addition to that on  the Nakusp.   Jas. Kelly is his  assistant.  ore was thought to be purely tret-milling.  It was ascertained not long ago, however that the ore carried considerable  quautitcs of native tellurium, which is  known to carry with it considerable  quantities of both gold and silver, and in  consequence the values placed upon tho  prospects in this camp have been greatly  increased.  The persons 'who havo relocated thc  Rhoderick Dhn and Lady of the Luke  claim good and substantial grounds for  the relocation aud say they aie willing to  submit the matter to tho judgment of  the proper authority,  Three shifts of men are now developing the Wiunipeg sis fast as they can. It  is reported that tellurium has been found  in the drift in the old shaft. The purchasers express themselves as being  thoroughly satisfied with their bargain.  The body of mineral still holds out in  the Stemwinder and is reported as growing richer and bigger all the time.  The parlies who have bonded the Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides, Greenwood camp,  will begin prospecting those claims with  a diamond drill in about 10 days.  Blewetfc & Larson, who have obtained  15-year leases from "Crazy" Brown on  the Volcanic mountaiu mine and the  Wolverine, up the north fork of Kettle  river, will start to work in a few days.  Two shifts, will be put to work on \ol-  cauic mountain and one on the Wolverine for the present. It is expected that  the force will soon be iucretised  Townsites are still blossoming on al*  sides. Carson City has beeu surveyed  tit McLaren's on Kettle river, right on  the line betweeu the reservation and  British Columbia. ' The townsite at  Boundary City is being surveyed and a  hotel is building at Spencer's ranch, near  Skylark camp.  LOCAL   NI.WS.  COPPER.PROSPECTS.  The recent ptitchase of a large interest  in the Anaconda copper miue, together  with rumors from Loudon that producing  companies are negotiating to control production, lends more than passing interest  to the position of copper.  It is true that the Anaconda and Rio  Tinto people, together with others, could  so far curtail the output of copper as to  lift quotations for both the metal and  the shares of the companies, bnt those  whose recollection carries them "back  seven years will recall the unfortunate  result of the last- attempt to bull copper.  It is a matter of some doubt, even at this  distance, whether it was the restriction  in the production of copper which broke  prices, or whether it was the hundreds  and thousands of old lots of copper  which were drawn out of storage and  junk shops by the attraction of high  prices.  It will be declared, of course, that the  rumored combination in copper circles is  quite different from that known as the  Societe desMetaux of 1888. Producers today declare they have no desire to tinker  with the.law of supply and demand in  order to enhance the duty, and that  it is far from their wishes to bring about  anvfching suggesting a corner.  From the point of view of the public,  it may be safely concluded, any combination which succeeds iu controlling  production may soon find itself; beyond  its depth, from the philanthropic point  of view, and proceed to put up prices  with the same regularity aud insistence  tliat~\vouTd be "shown by "auy "market"  manipulator. It should-be added that no  one is so fully aware as some of the  heavy producers that the present would  be the most unfortunate time to mark up  quotations. " With the beginiug of a revival in trade, and industry, it, they  admit, would be the better policy tor producers to encourage the use of copper iu  every possible manner rather than to  discourage it by advances at every wave  of increasing demand.  It was not long ago that deliveries of  copper were declared in excess of supplies, aud-gtocks iu England and France  went off somewhat sharply*. The strength  of the position of the metal .was manifested by declining arrivals of copper - in  Europe*. For twelve months ended last-  September imports of .copper into . the  Uuited Kingdom from the United States  were 5S,778 tons, against 8S���������']52 tous iu  the preceding year. Other producing  countries Iiave not reportea a corresponding falling oil* iu shipments^, although copper exports from Sp.'iin-,  Portugal and Chili have been smaller  than'a'year ago. ~  English writers on the copper market  look for an advance iu copper, irrespective of the question involved .in the outlook for a combination. ' It is declared  that copper producing countries are  earning larger devicleuds than a few  months ago, and it is known that while  the average price of. good merchantable  brands of copper averaged for a year aud  a halt to the end of June last about $'100  per ton, that it has since been, quoted  fully S30 a ton higher. The increase in-  quotations for copper stocks also foreshadows an expectation of larger   prices.  The new raihvay depot  of tbe N. <fc  F. S. Railway at Bogus Town was  used foi' thi! lirst time on Thursday  List.  The S. S. Nelson bas so far succeeded  in 111 iking her way up to Bonner's  Ferry t bough she tuts to break through  a good deal'of ice to get there. But  iiiivigat ion on the river may close any  day now.  The T"ihuno complains   that there  are loo   many   papers   in   Kootenay.  Surely with so obvious a remedy within its own reach, which would   at any  rate reduce tho number by one, such a  complaint becomes sheer kicking of the  ' mule's hind leg pattern.  j    The   report  that   the   Kaslo-Slocan  j Railway carried in  the  machinery for  ! the Slocan  Star concentrator free of  charge, as an inducement to secure the  carriage of the ore from that mine,   is  without foundation. Mr. Byron White  was charged find paid full   tariff rates  for its transport.  There is no saying when a man will  take ii (it into his bead to go and have  a dozen oysters lt do.sn.t matter at.  what hour he may be seized with an  insatiable desire for the succulent  bivalve in Nelson, -because he will find  Miss Maggie Duffy's restaurant on  Josephine street open at till hours, day  and night,  in a. paragraph last week concerning  Mr. Clemes visit to Alberni, this  gentleman was erroneously referred to  as the expert of the Lillooet P. R. it O,  G. Co., L'd. This is so obvious a clerical error that it. hardly needs contradicting, at the same time we wish at,  once to do justice to Mr. Clemes and  acknowledge our mistake. Mr. Clemes  represents the Leo Norman syndicate.  If the chlidr'*n will be found (locking  tothe Nelson Drug Store to inspect  tbe toys (herein displayed, their elders  will be not less attracted hy the pretty  novelties in the shape of jewellery  specially suitable for Christmas  presents that are to be found at Jacob  Dover's. Any man who has a wife, a  sister or a sweetheart will just have to  go there. ���������-  Mr. Paul Johnson, superintendent of  the lliill Mines is confident that the  (ires will be lighted iu the smeller on  the 1st of January., The company has  been favored with wonderful weather  ever since it began operations on the  smelter and consequently the buildings  are approaching completion, but there  is still a great deal of work to do. The  railway to the works is now nearly  coinple.teand only awaits the arrival  of two car loads of rails.  On Monday last the S.S. Kootenay,  which was employed in bringing ties  to the C.P.R. extension at the head of  the lake, fouled 'either a snag or a rock.  She iit once began making water, and  was promptly beached. She has been  bnikheaded and it was expected, that  she would be pumped out and floated  off yesterday. Many large rocks have  been : thrown-into the river by the  ;blasting operations on the railway and  these form serious dangers to passing  steamers  THE   EASTERN   CRISIS.  KASLO CURLING CLl'B.  [ BOUNDABV  CREEK.  ; (Spokesman Review)  ! The Rhoderick Dim and the Lady of  : the Lake, two of the richest prospects in  : Long Lake camp, and partly owned b\  ; Spokane parties, have been jumped by  I some Rossland p& *p!e aud recorded re-  ' sueetively as the Telluride and the Time  ; Check.   '   .__ ..-.'',.'  . Since the discovery of tellurium in  ��������� Long Lake camp there has been con-  , siderable excitement in that section.  i When it was first discovered, last May, the j petitors,  ' A curling cinb was organized at Kaslo  on Saturday evening, 25th ult. G. O.  Buchanan was elected president, James  Wangh vice-president, and Ii. Byers  secretary-treasurer. Among thc members  are D. VV. Moore, J. F. Mcintosh. J. L.  Retallack, D. Rogers", R. F- Green, F. H.  Green,"S. Benzie. A. A. McKinnon. R. W.  Cockle, T.J. Jtoadley, I>. Mar-.haH.etc.  The new club have sent their order to the  Jlingston Smith "Arms Company, of Winnipeg for 1 (i pa*ir of red hone curling  I stones and they have also applied for  I affiliation with the Manitoba branch of  i the -Koy-il Caledonian Club. It is sup-  ; posed that a nev." district will be formed  . ;i*.d that the parent club will offer the  ��������� usual district medal for coin petition. The  Kaslo gillie? are looking around forcom-  Mr. Justice Drake has discharged  the injunction obtained by the.Kaslo  and Slocan railway against the Nakusp  and Slocan raihvay. Mis Lordship-decided that it was not shown that  defendants' line crossed, intersected or  united with plaintiffs' line, aud it was  only in the event of such acts being  intended that there can be a reference  to the chief commissioner. J11 the  .present-case���������there-might���������be���������special-  steps taken to prevent damage I"  plaintiffs' line, but conditions had not  been shown that would support,  plaintiffs'injunction.    - ^  We hope that a curling club will be  formed in Nelson, ;"not only because it  is a most excellent, sport, but to inaugurate some friendly matches with  our friends in Kaslo.- Curling calls for  ��������� whiskey and that ought to make it  popular. We never saw a game yet  that had'not got a bottle handy. ' If a  club is to be formed, there is no time  to lose and an order for the "stanns"  should be sent away at once. They  cost from $10 to $20 a pair and.can lie  got in Winnipeg. The Kaslo club has  ordered 1(1 pair.  A ��������� correspondent, of The Province,  writing from Rossland suggests that  thc Government should "post notices  in the mining districts���������stating in  language intelligible to every prospector the requirements" of the'mining  laws about: the location of claims. This  is an excellent proposal, but we are  afraid tbfit it wonld.hiive little effect.  The above mentioned conditions are  easy to get and they are simple enough  on the face of theni, but human pigheaded ncss, foolishness and ignorance  are beyond any control- There are  certain" offices in this town having  the following legend plainly inscribed  on their doors. Office hours 0 to 5.  And yet we have seen people come' at  all hours, "7 in- the morning; or !) nt  night,and stand with their noses up  against, the notice. hammering and  knocking and,, ask ing every passer" by  when so and so will be in.  !    The   down  train   from   Sandon   to  Kaslo had   a  narrow   escape  from  a  terrible accident  one   day  last week.  The train was  somewhat, late in starting  from   Sandon  .and  The engineer  determined  to  make   what speed he  could on tlie bit  of line to Bear Lake.  He had passed up  the road only half  an hour   previously   so  that" he   was  'justified in supposing it to be clear.' On  ! rounding one of the curves on thc lint;  1 where it bangs suspended  almost SOU  j fi*ei above Three  Forks,  and close to  i the   celebrated   and   dreaded.   Payne  !

The engineer and  : fireman both jumped as soon as they  1 saw the danger and escaped unhurt.  THE SULTAN LOSES HIS HEAD.

By "(*)���������'���������  [Copyright, 1805, by the Author.]  Early last fall there died in Troy an  old man and his -wife. The woman -went  first, und the husband took a chill at  her grave's edge when ho stood bareheaded in a lashing shower. Tho loose  earth crumbled under his feet, trickling  over, and dropped on her coffin lid.  Through two long nights he lay on his  bed without sleeping and listened to  this sound. At lirst it ran in his cars  perpetually, hut afterward he heard it  at intervals only, in tho pauses of acute  Buffering. On the seventh day he died of  pleuropneumonia, and on the tenth (a  lunday) they buried him. For just 50  years the dead man had been minister of  the Independent chapel on tbe hill and  had laid down his pastorate two years  before, on his golden wedding day. Consequently.there was a funeral sermon,  and the young man, his successor, chose  II Samuel i, 23, for his text, "Lovely  And pleasant in their lives, and in their  death they.were.not.divided." Himself  a newly married man, he waxed dithy-  ratubio on -the sustained affection and  accord of the departed couple. ' 'Truly,''  he wound up, "such marriages as theirs  were made in heaven.!' And could, they  have heard the,two bodies in the cemetery had, not denied it, but the woman,  after the fashion.of women, would have  qualified the young minister's assertion  in her secret heart.  When, at the close of the year 1839,  Rev. Samuel Bax visited Troy for tho  first time to preach his trial sermon at  Salem chapel, he arrived by Bontigo's  van, late on a Saturday night, and departed again for Plymouth at 7 o'clock  pn Monday morning. He had just turned 21 and looked younger, and the zeal  of his calling was strong upon him.  Moreover, he .was shaken with nervous  anxiety for the success of his sermon.  So that it is no marvel if he carried  away but blurred and misty impressions  of the little port and the congregation  that sat beneath him that morning, ostensibly reverent, but actually on the  lookout for heresy or any sign of weakness.- Their impressions, at any rate,  were sharp enough. They counted his  thumps upon the desk, noted his one  reference to "the original Greek," saw  and remembered the flush of his young  face and the glow in. his eye as he hammered the doctrine of the redemption  ont of original sin. The deacons, fixed  the subject of these trial sermons and  bad chosen original sin on the ground  that a good beginning was half the battle. The maids in the congregation knew  beforehand that he was unmarried and  came out of the chapel knowing also  that his eyes were brown; that his hair  had a reddish tinge in certain lights; that  one of his cuffs was frayed slightly, but  his black coat had scarcely been worn a  dozen times, with other trifles. They  loitered by the chapel door until he came  ont ia company with Deacon. Snowden,  who was conveying him off to dinner.  The,deacon on weekdays was harbor  master of the port and on Sundays afforded himself roasted duck for dinner.  Lizzie Snowden walked at her father's  right hand.. She was a slight, bloodless  blond, tall, with a pretty complexion,  and hair upon which it was rumored she  could sit if. she were so minded. The  girls watched the young preacher and  bis entertainers as they moved down the  bill, the deacon talking and his daughter turning her head aside as if it were  merely in the section of the world situated on her right hand that she took the  least interest.  "That!- to show 'en the big plait,"  commented one pf the group behind.  "He. can't turn his. head hesway, but it  ���������tares 'en in the face."  ���������-*-" An her features-look-bestfrom* the  left side, as everybody knows."  "I .reckon, if he's chosen minister,  that Lizzie'll have 'en," said a tall,  lanky girl. She was apprenticed to a  dressmaker and engaged to a young tinsmith. Having laid aside ambition on  her account, she flung in this remark as  . an apple of discord.  "Tenifer Hosken has a chance. He's  fair skinned hisseP, and Lizzie's too  near his own color. Black's mate is  white,,as they say."   ���������  "There's Sue Tregraine. . She'll have  more money than either when her father  dies. "  .. "What,   marry one o!  Euan!" the  speaker tittered despitefully.  <i "Why not?"'  The only answer was a shrug. Buan  ia a small town that faces Troy across  the diminutive harbor, or perhaps I  should say that Troy looks down upon  it at this slight distance. When a Trojan speaks of it, he says, "Across the  water," with as much implied contempt  aa though he meant Botany Bay. There  is no cogent roason for this, ezcept that  the poorer class at Ruan earns its livelihood by fishing. In the eyes of its neighbors the shadow of this lonely calling is  cast, upward upon its wealthier inhabitants. ". Troy depends on commerce and  employs these wealthier men of Kuan to  build ships for it. Further it will hardly condescend. In the days of which I  " "Prite intermarriage between the towns  was almost unheard of, and even now it  is rare. Yet they, are connected by a  penny ferry.  "Her father's a shipbuilder,'? nrgod  Sue Tregraiue's supporter.  "He might, so well keep crab pots for  all the chance she'll have."     -  Now,, there was a Kuan girl standing  just outside this group, and she beard  what was said. Her name was Nance  Trewartha, and her father was a fisherman who did," in fact, keep crab pots.  Moreover, she was his only child and  helped him at his trade. She could ban  die a boat as well as a man, she knew  . every sea mark up and down the coast  for 40 miles, she could cut up bait, and  her hands were horny with handling  ropes from her childhood. But on Sundays she wore gloves and came across the  ferry to. chapel and was as wise as.any of  her sex She had known before coming  out of her pew that tbe young minister  had a well shaped back to his head, and  a gold ring on his little finger, with  somebody's hair in tho colet, under a  crystal. Sho was dark, straight and lissom of figure, with ripe lips and eyes  as black as sloes, and sho hoped that the  hair in the minister's ring was his mother'-. She was well aware of her social  inferiority, but���������the truth may bo told  ���������sho choso to forget it that morning  nnd to wonder what this young man  would he like as a husband. She had  looked up into his face during sermon  timo, devouring his boyish features, noticing his refined accent, marking every  gesture. Certainly he was comoly and  desirable. As he walked down the hill  by Deacon Suowdeu's side she was perfectly conscious of the longing in hor  heart, but prepared to put a stop to it  and go home to dinner as soon as ho had  turned the comer and passed out of  light. Theu came that unhappy remark  about the crab pots. She bit her lip for  a moment, turned and walked slowly off  toward the ferry full of thought.  Three weeks later Rev. Samuel Bax  received his call.  Ho arrived to assume his duties in the  waning light of a soft January day.  Bontigo's van set him down, with a carpetbag, bandbox and chest of books, at  the door of tho lodgings which Deacon  Snowden had taken for him. The honse  stood iu the North street, as it is called.  It was a small, yellow washed building,  containing just half a dozen rooms, and  of these the two set apart for the minis-  "Who are you?" lie demanded.  ter looked straight upon the harbor. Under his sitting room window was a little  garden and at the end of the garden a  low wall, with a stretch of water beyond it and a bark that lay at anchor  but a stone's throw away, as it seemed,  its masts overtopping the misty hillside  that closed the view. A green painted  door was let into the garden wall���������a  door with two flaps, the upper of which  stood open, and through this opening he  caught another glimpse of gray water.  The landlady, who showed him into  this room and at once began to explain  that the furniture was better than it  looked, was hardly prepared for the rapture with which he stared ont of the  window. His boyhood had been spent in  a sooty Lancashire town, and to him the  green garden, the quay door, the bark  and the still water seemed to fall little  short of paradise.  "I reckoned you'd like it," she said.  "Ah, to be sure, 'tis a blessing you do."  He turned his stare upon her for a moment. She was a benign looking woman  of about 50, in a short skirted gray gown  and widow's cap.  "Why do you say that?"  ,      ������  "Because, leavin out the kitchen,  there's but four rooms, two for you an  two for me, two facin the harbor an two  facin the street. Now, if you'd took a  dislike to this lookout, I must ha' put  you over the street an moved in here my-  sel'. I do like the street, too, there's so  much more doin."  "I think this.arrangement will be bet-  ter in every way," said the young minister.  "I'm main glad. Iss, there's no deny-  in that I'm main glad. From up stairs  yon can see right, down the harbor,  which is pr ;tier again. Would'ee like  to see it now? O' course you would, an  it'll be so mnch handier for answerin  the door too. There's a back door at the  end o' the passage. You've only tp slip  a bolt an you'm out in the garden���������out  to your boat, if you choose to keep one.  But the garden's a tidy little spot to  walk up an down in an make up your  sermons, wi' nobody to overlook you but  the folk next door, an they'm churchgoers. "  After supper that evening the young  minister unpacked his books and was  about to arrange .them, but drifted to the  window instead. He paused for a minute  or two, with his face close to tbe pane,  and then flung up the sash. A faint  north wind breathed down the harbor,  scarcely ruffling; the water. Around and  above him' the frosty sky flashed with  innumerable stars, and behind the barks'  masts, behind the long chine of the eastern hill, a soft radiance heralded the rising moon. It was the new moon, and  wbiie he waited her thin horn pushed  np, as it were, through the furze brake  on the hill's summit, and she mounted  .into the freo heaven. With upturned  eyes the young minister followed her  eourse for. 20 minutes, not consciously  observant, for he was thinking.over his  ambitions, and at his time of life these  are apt to soar with the moon. ..Though  possessed with zeal for good work in this  small seaside town, he intended .that  Troy should be but a stepping stone in  his journey. He meant to go far. And  wbilo he meditated his future, forgetting  the chill in the night air, it was being  decided for him by a stronger will than  his own. More than this, tbat will had.  already passed into action. His destin*  Vas actually launched on the full springtide that sucked the crevices of the gray  wall at the garden's end.  A slight sound drew the minister's  gaze down from the moon to the quay  door. Its upper flap still stood open, allowing a square of moonlight to pierce  the straight black shadow of the garden  wall.  In this square of moonlight were now  framed the head and shoulders of a human being.

Our many readers, especially those  who were personally acquainted with  him will regret to hear that Mb. Olive  Phiixippb-Wolley. has severed his  connection with The Miner. By a  curious coincidence the. same mail  that brought this news, brought a  Mining Journal from London containing a reprint of an article descriptive  of Rossland, being one of a series on  the South Mineral Belt of British  Columbia, which Mb. Wolley contributed to this paper. Mb. Wolley  has a world-wide reputation as an  author and journalist and he has made  extensive use of his opportunities and  reputation to advertise Kootenay and  British Columbia. As chief owner of  The Miner he has always been careful  that its efforts should be made in the  same direction and he has used his influence to push his journal in quarters  where it could have most effect. It is  on the whole scarcely too much to  say that Mr. Wolley has done more  than any other man to make this distant and unknown country famous  in the marts of the world. It may  casually be remarked that from a  purely business point of view these  services are absolutely gratuitous and  have resulted in no sort of pecuniary  recompense to their author.  We sincerely hope that Mb. Wolley  will often be seen in Kootenay, where  he may be always sure of a welcome,  and we trust that his facile pen which  has done so much to bring about that  . era of prosperity that is just breaking  on nt may find an agreeable task in  describing its ultimate perfection.  ���������"NO BONES ABOUT IT."  The Saturday Review has returned  to the charge against the Lillooet  Fraser River and Cariboo Gold Fields  Company. L'd.  Now, we wish it to be distinctly understood that we express no opinion of  our own on tbe matter. We know  nothing about it, but the charges now  brought by the great London weekly  ���������re so serious and involve persons in  the highest positions in British Columbia tbat the matter becomes one cf  Provincial concern and calls for immediate elucidation and settlement.  With, these charges so far as they  " rolateTiortfie^GbmpanyT itself "We have  nothing to do. But, as we have said,  the present charges involve something  more than the commercial integrity of  ��������� speculative concern. Tbey actually  impugn the motives and utterances of  our Prime Minister himself. This latter demands prompt rebuttal. Either  the journal must be made to eat its  words or the niiuistermust retire from  public life.  Shortly, the new charges are as follows : The Saturday Review has received and published a letter from a  correspondent at Victoria signing himself "British Colonist," explaining who  Messrs. F. S. Barnard, A. E. McPhillips and C. T. Dunbar are. They  are the local directors of the L. F. R.  Jt C. G. F. L'd., and their description as  given in this letter does not commend  them as directors of a public company.  "British Colonist" has further sent to  the.Saturday Review a copy of the  Colonist, containing an account of an,  interview with the Hon. Mr. Turner  Premier of the Province, on his recent  return from England. In this interview  the Premier is reported to have said  that "one half of the stock, ������135,000,  was taken by the following well known  financiers, viz., Henri Rosenheim, Jules  de Machiels & Co., Baron Gustave de  Rothschild of Rothschild & Co., Baron  Hirscb," and several others whose  names it is not necessary for us  to repeat here. The Saturday Review  asserts that none of these names  appear on the Company's register of  shareholders. It is, of course, possible  that this galaxy of millionaires holds  stock through some intermediate  party, and if that is the case the matter can be at once explained, and we  hope that it will be.  The paper then states that Mr. Turner himself is not a "regular" shareholder and asks what his interest in the  Company is, suggesting that he may  have been connected with its promotion. .  Now this is making "no bones" about  it with a vengeance, and in a manner  that cannot be allowed to go uncontradicted.  THE SLUMP [IN KAFFIRS.  The "Kaffir" market is coining down  out of the clouds and will probably  soon find itself on the basis of sound  business. In addition to the certainty  of bursting, which is the natural fate  of all bubbles, these stocks have suffered in common with .all securities of  every sort and kind owing to the danger  of war in the East. It is a_matter for  congratulation that the "burst ing" of  the bubble has partaken more of the  character of a gentle scientific reduction,than of a violent explosion. It  was greatly feared that the latter  calamity was inevitable and the wide  spread ruin that would have accompanied it may be estimated ,by the  fact that "Kaffir" securities have  shrunk in value in two months to tbe  extent of no less a sum than 390 millions of dollars. Many instances show  that it was high time something occurred to protect the public. The  "wild catter" was not going to neglect  so fine au opportunity to get his work  in and now many of his little schemes  are coming to light in their true colors.  The Johannesburgcorrespondent of the  London Statist tells the story of one,  which is worth reading for its sheer  cheek. Belonging to a respectable  mining corporation were some thirty  claims, which they had originally  bought before the actual location and  dip of their ledge were ascertained.  Development soon showed that these  claims were not on the line of the  ledge and its dip was away from them.  They were, therefore, absolutely valueless. They were put up to auction and  fetched the sum of one penny apiece.  They were bought by some enterprising individuals who formed a company  and proposed to sell them in London  for the sum of ������150,000. Mining men  will at once appreciate how good a  prospectus could be made out of such  a property, and the British public has  to thank the local correspondent of the  Statist for being saved from this and  other swindles.  ACETYLENE.  The stability of industrial investment becomes a matter of very considerable anxiety in view of the  lapidity of modern invention. No  sooner is some new process or machine  invented than clever people, following  the lead, begin to improve on it. while  others stumble across fresh combinations which bid fair to oust all existing  ideas.  Among these novelties is acetylene,  the new gas. It was accidently dis-  covered during a course of experiments  designed to improve the quality of  ordinary coal gas. It is produced by  heating a mixture of coal and lime, or  charcoal and chalk, in an electric furnace and throwing the resulting compound into water.' By this simple and  inexpensive process a gas is evolved  which gives a light equal to that of tbe  sun itself. The powerful rays of the  arc light,'hitherto the most brilliant  known to economic science, pale before  the new illuminant. Acetylene is of  such a nature that it requires no pipes  or.wires as gas or electricity do, but it  can be carried about and sold at the  door like coal or ice. It is said to have  all the qualities necessary to enable it to  at once take the leading place amongst  illuminants. So much is this the  case that the financial and other leading papers of the Eastern States are  beginning to ask, what is to become of  the enormously expensive plants of  electric and gas companies all over the  world when brought face to face with  "theliew invention/ _  Like coal tar, of which the byproducts are almost without end, so  acetylene can produce an endless string  of substances useful in the arts or in  commerce. From it can be made dyes,  medicines, essences, perfumes, poisons,  explosives, and last, but probably not  least, cheap whiskey.  INSOLEtVT MEANNESS.  Our readers are probably aware that  it is the custom for newspapers to ex  -hang, with each other for their  mutual benefit., The Miner has. for  several years exchanged with the  Toronto Globe, though of late the  copies of the eastern daily. have not  reached us. When they do we dol not  use them, but our columns and those  of our local contemporaries are frequently drawn upon for news of this  district as that.is the only method by  which they can learn in the  East what is going on here,  It is much cheaper to copy from  the local papers than to pay a corres  pondent. However no one grumbles  at this. The other day' we received a  letter from the Globe requesting us to  insert in our. local column an adver-  tisraent of its weekly issue. Four  different advertisements were sent to  be inserted* on different occassions.  Our payment for this was to be the  honor of remaining on the exchange  list of the Globe. This distinction we  neither covet or desire. Its loss will  only be felt by the Chinese wash boys  who empty our. waste, paper basket.  But we thought we would see what  sort of stuff these Globe people.are  made of, so we wrote to them saying  that we should be glad to insert one of  their puffs if they would do the same  for us. This seemed to us reasonable,  bnt our little proposal was refused  with scorn. We beg therefore to inform the Globe that though we only  came into existence five or six years  ago and our circulation is not reckoned  by thousands that out here in. tbe  West we are not accustomed to- put  np with impudence of any kind even  from a paper whose idea of its importance judging by its own printed puffs  is only equalled by its insolent meanness.

Who was it who invented the phrase,  "The literary idea, " and did ho quite  understand what ho meant by it? Did  it occur to him that ideas are the property of the human mind and not of any  particular art; that though some can be  fully expressed by one art only, and  some better expressed by ono art than  another, to deny the right of any art to  express or suggest what it can would be  to impoverish it very seriously? Lit-  eraturo would como off better thaii  painting, but how changed and dull  would it bo if what may bo called the  "pictorial idea" woro excluded from  its territory!  Fortunately men of imagination who  are also artists havo always refused to  b* strictly bound by pedantic tlicorii!.1*,  and the greatest of thorn havo not boon  the first to break down any inconvenient  barriors between one art and another,  which hampered tho expression of then  thoughts. What has boon will be, and  even in tho present day of dominant  "realism" we havo several artists who  endeavor to express by paint such ideas  as inspire them without much regard as  to whether thoy are "literary" or not.  ������������������"Goorge Frederick Watts, R.

Not every expert will iujure  his chances of gain by laying beforo tho  public his methods and knowledge iii  the practice of his profession. Butacel-  ebrated aurist is said to have willingly  sacrificed his practice to the victims of  earache by giving tlie following advice  to all who are thus afflicted: At the  first symptoms of earache let the patient lie on the bed with tho painful ear  uppermost. Fold a thick towel and tuck  it around the neck. Then with a tea'  spoon fill tho ear with warm water.  Contiriuo doing this for 15 or 20 minutes. Tho water will fill the ear orifice  and flow over on the towel. Afterward  turn over tho head, let the.water run out  and plug the ear with warm glycerin  aud cotton. This may be done every  hour until relief is obtained; It is an  almost invariable cure aud.. has saved  many cases of acute inflammation. The  water should bo quite warm, but not  too hot.���������Minneapolis Housekeeper.  Lightening the Burden.  Those women who have spent necessary car fare, time and strength iu  seeking helpers of various kinds to carry on the work of their households  would do well to follow the example of  _ Syracuse club that has divided its city  Into wards and found out in each of  those wards the names aud addresses of  ������ll those who can do different kinds of  work and the conditions under which it  .an be done. Those things they have  printed in a little book called the  "Household Register." The plan seems  I most commendable aud efficient one  |or putting those who arc in need of  Isrvice promptly in communication with  Ihoae who can render it.���������New York  Post. _   Ownership of a Line Tree.  A oase has been tried in Pihladelphia  {s to the ownership of a tree on the line..  etweeu two properties. It was a maple  tree, two-thirds of tho trunk being on  me side and one-third on the property  of the one threatening to cut the tree  Iway. This is presumptive proof that  the tree started on the property of the  one objecting to the tree's destruction:  As the oue dosiring to cut it away, permitted its growth to extend within his  line, he can probably have no say in  the tree's destruction. The court favor-  sd this view. An injunction was granted restraining the cutting away of tho  tree. Only a joint agreement can cot,  the tree away.���������Moehan's Monthly.
