KASIiO  MUNICIPAL  ELECTION.  The election of Mayor and Aldermen  came off on Thursday. There was a close  run between Messrs. Johii Keen, (the  retiring mayor) and Robert F. Green  for the civic chair which resulted in a  victory for the latter by two votes. It is  said that if there had not been some  spoiled papers the- voting would ��������� have  resulted in a dead heat.  The following aldermen were elected  unopposed; Messrs. G. O. Buchanan,  Cole Murchison, Geo. Whiteside, J. D.  Moot* and A__,_rooden_ ugh..  THE  EUM0KS   OF  WAH.

Siuce our last issue the atmosphere-  has cleared a little aud it has become  possible to distinguish a few facts that  were previously mixed up with and  obscured by the smoke of newspaper  talk.  The "Venezuelan trouble sank at once  into insignificance when the news of  Jameson's filibustering expedition into  the Transvaal was received, and that  in its turn was at once eclipsed by the  excitement caused by the Emperor of  Germany's message to the President  of the Transvaal.  There is no doubt that this latter did  indeed send a wave of warlike feeling  throughout England and preparations  for active -hostilities .were actually  commenced. Recent despatches we  are thankful to say tend to allay the  excitement.and it is to be hoped that a*l  the troubles will pass quietly away.  The following is a synopsis of events  that have occurred since our last.  Venezuela.  Mr. Henry Norman, correspondent  of the London Daily Chronicle at  Washington cables that "the many  utterances off he American press prove  that American opinion is earnestly  desirous of a friendly and dignified  settlement." lie point* out that the  President's message which caused all  the trouble was not meant to be a  threat but it was meant to convey the  foeliugof American opinion ut Britain's  refusal to aibitrate.  For the present this matter is laid  aside pending the report of the  Commission which*\will be awaited  with considerable anxiety. It may bi-  mouths before-1 he report, is made, lt  is somewhat difficult to see how this  Commission wil get the British side of  the case put before it as England cannot recognise its existence, officially.  That would be tantamount to going to  arbitration after she has refused to do  do.  TJll_   TltAXSVAAL.  Intense excitement prevailed at  Johannesburg last week, People were  hurrying into the town from the  surrounding country. A provisional  government of Uitlanders was formed  who announced that there win ample  provision to defend the town from the  Boers. An ultimatum was sent to  "the President who proposed a conference til, Petoria, but the Uitlanders  hesitated to venture to the capitol  without a promise of immunity.  Mr. Cecil Rhodes has resigned the  premiership of the Cape Colony and  has been succeeded by Sir George  Gordon-Spriggs���������Colonial���������Treasurer.-  There is no change of government.  Mr. Rhodes action is undoubtedly  owing to the Chartered Company of  which he is chairman of Directors  being implicated in the Jamieson  business. Official etiquette requires  his retirement until itis proved that  neither he nor the company had any  connection with the affair.  The London Stock market began to  feel the effects of the war scare last  week, but Consols stood on Tuesday?  at 103| and closed better. The war  excitement in England was at. its  height on theOth. Commanding officers  of volunteer regiments were beseiged  by applications from their men to be  enrolled for active service. Troops  en route to or from India were ordered  to call at the Cape for instructions. A  flying squadron was. ordered lo be  ready for sea in six days. It consists  of two first class battleships, two first  class and two second class cruisers,  The ships are H.1M.S. Revenge, Royal  Oak, Gibralta-, Theseus. Oharyhdis,  and llenuione. The Cape of Good  Hope and West Africa squadrons havo  been ordered to rendezvous at Delagoa  B*.y. All the. regiments of the British  Army, reserve, volunteer, militia, etc.  have*been ordered to make returns of  their strength for mobilisation.  -On the "91 h a" despatch from Sir  Hercules Robinson to Rt. Hon. Joseph  Chamberlain, Colonial secretary, was  published to the effect' that the Uitlanders of Johannesburg had laid down  their arms and surrendered unconditionally to President Krueger. In-  addition the President had intimated  his intern ion of handing Dr. Jainieson  and the other prisoners over to the  British authorities for trial.  On the 10th January it was announced that a second squadron would  assemble at Portland in addition to  the fleet already anchored there. The  messages are a little confuting as. ���������"o  these fleets, butthe significant phrase  is used that without this second one.  the fleet anchored at Portland will  probably make the greatest display of  naval strength ever made, by any  nation. There will be eighteen hat tie  ships and cruisers and fifteen torpedo  catchers. The fieet will include the  Eastern and Western divisions of the  Clmunel Squadron.  Tba Queen telegraphed through the  Colonial Secretary to President Krueger  congratulating him on his measures to  preserve peace. It is felt that the situation largely depends on his action. It is  expected that he will demand a large indemnity from the Chartered Company.  Estima'te- of its amount are guessed at  from ������500,000 to ������2,000,000. If lie also  demands release from the suzerainty of  Great lirilniu and Germany   backs him  up there will be trouble.  The Kaffir market had a, severe shock  on Friday and the settlement was most  unsatisfactory. >  The government lias ordered the stock  of small arm cartridges to be increased  from Qtteeu to one hundred aud fifty  millions. -.*  Mr. Chamberlaiu and President Krueger are both being congratulated  on their handling of the situation.  It is felt that thc Emperor of Germany  is anxious for a war with England, ap  parently-in much the same spirit as the  owner of a good horso will back him in a  match against somebody else's. But the  present opportunity has slipped by. Another may, and very likely will, occur  in the course of next month or next year,  uo one can1 tell when. Meanwhile the  entire Euglish press, Conservative and  Liberal alike, is unanimous in expressing  the opinion that England is ready for  him-whenever he likes to try'his luck.  Had war beeu declared it is said that the  entire German fleet would have been  blockaded iu the Baltic, and thus the  German idea of landing half a million  men iu London in two or . three days  ���������would be frustrated.  In reply to the Queen's message President Krueger replied that he would  release Jameson and other prisoners as  .-."on as the Uitlanders laid down their  arms.  Twenty-two members of the Reform  Committee, including Colonel Rhodes  (brother of Cecil Rhodes), Sir Drum-  mond Duubar, Mr. Lionel Phillips and  Dr. Saner were arrested at their club in  Johanuesberg ou a charge of high treason  and couveyed under escort to Pretoria.  It is said that the Emperor of Germany  is in correspondence with the Queen od  Transvaal affairs aud that he repudiates  any hostile intention to England but  desires cnly to express his disapproval  of Dr. Jamieson's conduct. What  purports also to be a let ter from the  Dowager Empress of Germany (our  Princess Royal) to her mother the  Queen has also been published. It is  reported to contain the assurance that  the Emperor does not desire to disturb  the closing years of his grandmothers  magnificent reign with war.  It is rumored that the Queen has  called on naval and military officers to  wear I heir uniforms in public as is the  custom of continental officers.  . Among those arrested at Johannesburg and taken to Pretoria is John  Hays .Hammond the well known  American mining engineer. __ T. H.  King another American mining  engineer has also been arrested.  These arrests of A inericans have called attention tothe inadequate representation of the United Stales in the  Transvaal, and in consequence Great  Britain has been appealed to by  Secretary Olney to protect American  citizens in that country. This was  communicated to Mr. Chamberlain  through the United States Ambassador. Mr. Chamberlain at once in  the most kindly terms repeated his  assurance that Great Britain would do  whatever was possible to protect  Americans in the Transvaal.  The British flying squadron has  received instructions to pro.eed to  Berehaven in the south of Ireland with  sealed orders. In addition to the  vessels mentioned above, three first  class torpedo cruisers have been added  to the squadron, ear. ving 200(1 officers  and men It is believed that the  squadron is to make a tour of the  world.  Mr. Balfour speaking at Manchester  on Wednesday last said that the  present condition of things in the  Transvaal could ��������� not continue. Ik-  was sanguine that the President  ���������would~SFe_the-neces9ity-^of���������grant ing-  the long promised reforms. Whether  it was called suzerainty or not there  could be no mistake that Great Britain  controlled the external relations of the  Transvaal, and would admit no foreign  interference. He further believed  that no foreign country was prepared  to dispute that doctrine.  THE PARIS BELLE TRIAL,  The case of the Nelson <fe Fort Shop-"  pard Railway versus N. Jerry ami the  Paris Belle Miuing Co. came on in  Victoria on Wednesday last before the  Chief Justice. The case for the, plaintiffs is that the claim located by Jerry iu  December 1894 is not mineralized at all  aud therefore cannot be located, and  even if it is defendants have only surface  rights as far as the claim itself is concerned as loug as they are actually carrying ou operations. l/urSher the doteud-  autshadnol. complied with thc mining  laws as regards compensation, and were  therefore for that reason not entitled to  locate.  The defendants urge that the land is  mineralized and thai it was held as such  by miniug location previous to the laud  grant being made to the railway.  F. J. Kelly, a mining expert, gave evidence for the plaintiffs. He had large  experience, not only iu the Rosslaud  district, but in many parts of thc Uuited  States. He explained the amount of  w.rk done on the claim and declared  that as the result of his examination  there was no mineral in the shaft. The  shaft was in diorite (the country rock  roimd Rosslaud) aud he could ouly fiud  a few small seams of iron pyrites and not  an indication of auy ore which would  justify, a miner on spending money in  the development of the claim.  For tlie defence John Cronan testified  that the claim was valuable property.  He, as an expert, had made a very favorable report on it. He stated that thero  was mineral in places on-the claim, and  that the shaft, which"' was 25 feet deep,  j was "iri mineral fiom top to bottom. He  had obtained in one assay from SO to S10  in gold. - He had beeu engaged in mining  for 25 years.  John M. Burke stated that he had 30  years mining experieuce.. fie had examined the property in question and  found mineral iu tbe shaft. The vein ran  north and south and in this'respect differed from other veins, which ran east  aud west, and for that reason he did not  purchase.  At this point the case was adjourned  until yesterday morning aud the final  result "has not "yet reached us.  THE   NELSON   SMNLTEK.  Work Commenced This Week���������Results Exceeding Anticipation-.  It is nearly nine years ago since a  party of prospectors after an unsuccessful search for placer ground, wandering  about the summit of Toad mountain  came across a mineral outcropping with  which they were unacquainted. ll  appeared however to be worth assaying  and a sample was knocked off. These  prospectors were Alessrs. Hall, White.  Miller and Oakes. The Indian Narcissi  was employed to pack out the sample  weighing some thirty pounds. Its assay  proved it to be of value and it being too  late that season, tho party returned in  July 1887 and recorded the two now  famous claims the Silver King and the  Kootenay Bonanza. Such was the commencement of the mining enterprise  which culminated on Tuesday in the  blowing in of the first copper smelter in  Canada and the production of the first  'matte."  It is just possible that some of our  readers may be unacquainted with th.  nature of this "matte." It is not bullion  or metal, but a slag containing all the  mineral that there is iu the ore thrown  iuto the furnace. The mineral being the  heaviest naturally sinks to the bottom of  the crucible, as the lower part of the  furnace is called. The slag which contains nothing woith keeping being  drawn off at a higher level and thrown  away. It is concentration by heat. As a  matter of fact the matte is divided from  the slag ' in a settling pot and not in the  furnace at all, by which a good deal of  handling is saved. The molten ore runs  continuously from the furnace into a  settling pot, a Luge iron tank some five  feet square lined with fire brick. This  .ettling pot has two lips or spouts, one  at its upper edge on one side and another  a. little lower down on another side.  From the upper lip the valueless sing  pours off iuto a ship pot and from thence  iuto the granulating Hume. Here the  stream of cold water catches it aud  sweeps it away on to the dump. Meanwhile the settling pot is nearly full of  of matte. When this reaches the lower  lip, it runs off into a matte mould/  When cool, it is crushed sampled and  bagged for export.  Early on Tuesday morning the first  charge'1 was shot into the gaping jaws of  the furnace which had been gradually  heated up for some days. Iu the afternoon a considerable crowd of people with  some ladies assembled to see the first  matte drawn from the smelter. This  occurred, about four p.m.  . Everything was in perfect order and  worked with smoothness. The furnace  hands who are experienced men brought  in from Stilt Lake City moved about  their work as if they had been there for  yeais, and everything reflects the greatest  credit on Mr. Paul Johnson the superintendent.  The charges are regulated to deal with  four tons of ore per hour besides fluxes,  coke, lime, etc., making 96 tons iu  24 hours. About 2000 tons arc in the  bins and some 6000 or 7000 more on the  dump at the mines. This is not a stock,  that will permit of auy resting. Active  operations will be pushed on so that no  part of the works may be kept waitiug.  -" During the three days that have  elapsed since it was blown in, the smelter  has been working most satisfactorily.  The" ore-is~fouh~d~fo~~flux so i,ea_ily"t__at"'  some 120 tons a day can be put through  instead ot only 80 to 100 as was expected  The ore. that is being-treated is the  lowest grade of any ��������� in the company's  mine. It was estimated to contain only  28.5 ounces of silver and proves to have  30 ounces. It is concentrated in the  smelter in the proportion of 10 to 1 and  the resulting matte contains 300 ounces  of silver 47 to 48 per cent, of copper and  S12 of gold to the tou.  - Twenty five tons of coke are used*to  100 tons of ore and 10 per cent, of iron  and lime.  NAVIGATION ON THE LOWER COLUMBIA CLOSED BY ICE.  LOCAL   NEWS.  NEWS OF THE PROVINCE.  Two"mild winters in succession have  encouraged the belief that navigation on  the Columbia could be kept open  throughout the season. This winter,  however, seems lo be keeping up the  reputation of other winters celebrated for  their severity, and consequently navigation is closed. It was hoped that tho  branch from Revelstoke to Arrowhead  would bo finished by the 1st ot January,  but the men aud engines had to be taken  oil'that work aud sent to aid iu removing  the terrible snowslides that came down  on the main line. This branch, however,  will be finished ..shortly, and then the  Slocan oro can still be taken out via  Nakusp. But the Narrows between the  Upper and .Lower Arrow Lakes are  frozen up, aud the-steamers cannot get  down to- Robson. J Nor cau the Lytton  get up from Trail to the new spur at  Sprout's Landing. The C. P. R. is thus  cut off from all freight that is offering for  the Kootenay, except such as cau be  served by the N. & S. Ry., which is only  a small amount of the whole.  This simply means that if they want to  hold their grip on this- section they have  just got to build a line down the Slocan  River connecting- the Nakusp & Slocan  with the Columbia A* Kooteuay. This  would bring them to Nelson, which  means a great deal, but to make certain  of getting their share of the Kootenay  Lake trade they must extend the C. ,. K",  line to ii point opposite Balfour. The  outlet to Nelson from Kootenay La~ke is  still open. Out there is plenty of ice in it  and it may freeze up any day. No doubt  a channel could be kept open with a  proper ice-breaking boat, but a line to,  the Lake, which could easily be constructed, would render assurance'  doubly sure. It- would also be ones section of the proposed Crow's Nest Pass ,  route; ,- '  Mr. J. 11. Howes returned to Nelson ou  Saturday lust after a visit to St. Louis  aud other Eastern parts.  Bourne Bros., of Revelstoke. New  Denver and Nakusp, are thinking of  opening at Slocan City shortly.  It is- reported that the firm of Gilker  aud Wells will shortly dissolve. J. A.  Gilker_lakiug the Nelson branch.  In another column will be fouud an  advertisement calling for tenders for the  operation of a ferry across the Columbia  River at Trail.  An alteration is made in the time card  of the b.s. Nelson.   On   Fridays she  is j  now  billed to leave Nelson  at 2.3(1 p.m ,  instead of 5.30 p.m.  Pitt Bros,, Three Forks, are said to be  extending their business by taking a  partnership in Stubbs, Bannerman and  Co., general store, Sandon.  Tenders for carrying the mail betweeu  the Nelson post office nnd the wharf and  railway stations are called for by the  authorities of the post ollice.  . .In an interview at Winnipeg Mr. G. O.  Buchanan has given a most excellent,  account of the Kootenay country. It  fills just a column of the Free Press and  is n condensed description ofthe country  as it is to-day:  By Fridav morning's train Messrs. J. F.  Hume, M.P.P., J. Elliot and A. M. Johnson went out to the coast via Spokane.  Mr. Johnson has gone for the purpose of  passing his final examination as a barrister and solicitor.  We are pleased to note that in the Hou.  J. H. Turner's letter to The Times on the  mineral resources ot B. C. he has relied  largely for his information on the pamphlet which we published some little  time ago.  This morning Capt. Troup received a  telegram from Capt. Gore, of the s.s.  Nakusp, saying that he bad taken on  board at Arrowhead' 20 passengers, a car  load of cattle, mails and express and that  he would try to break his way through to  Robson today.  During the gale ou Wednesday afternoon the s.s. Alberta had some difficulty  iu getting under way for Kaslo. The  wiud caught her ou the beam aud drove  her right down among the ice iu the  lower bay before her head could be got  up into the wind. .  It was rumored in town yesterdaythat,  while the Lower Arrow lake is closed the  C.P.R. mails were to be sent through via  Nakusp, Sandon and Kaslo. which seems  to be a reasonable idea. Nothing however, was ollicially known of it at tbe  post ollice this morning.  A ball in aid of the Hospital came off  at the Phair Hotel on Wednesday evening  and was well attended. The supper -.vas  supplied by S. McLean, of the Bimetallic  restaurant.' Dancing was kept up to  about 4 a.m., the music which was excellent being supplied by Messrs. Harper  and Ross.  AVe notice a sentence in the report-of  the manager of a well known miue at  Coolgardie which is remarkable.  "Frequent stoppages take place owing to  the difficulty of procuring water. The  price is now raised to Gd (12 cents) a  gallon aud it is difficult to procure tit  that." Who would look at the richest  "proposition" in this country with such  a condition of affairs to face?  Speculation is rife as to the probable  effect of the lurid red smoke that pours  forth from the chimney of the smeller.  'Thiro"nly���������effect tbatr appears-tous-to be-  absolutely certain is the increased prosperity" of Nelson, and the more of this  smoke we get the better we shall be  pleased. Incidently it is to be1 ho{>eil  that another of ils effects will be payment  of dividends to the shareholders in the  Hall mines.'  The ice at the skating rink is now in  first class condition, and the management is taking advantage of the good  conditions to ��������� provide its patrons with  plenty of amusement. To-night there  will be a great skating contest, open to  all competitors, and next Wednesday a  grand carnival, with prizes for the best  costumes, Full particulars will be announced on the handbills, which also  contain the necessary caution "weather  permitting."  .   MANITOBA ELECTION'S.  The result of the elections in the  Province of Manitoba which took  place on Wednesday last is, as far as  Known, an overwhelming majority in  favor of premier Green way. The  figures given .'are, Government supporters 32. Opposition, -I, Independent,  ���������I." This gives t,he government0 a  majority of 2-1."  . The question on which the election,  turned w-is the now fainous school  question 'and the result is distinctly in  favor of the national school system,  against separate school., and especially  coercive legislation on the part, ofthe  Dominion Government. This will  probably have an effect on afTaii s at  Ottawa and may help to settle inatt'eis  there, the people of the -prairie province having so distinctly spoken their  mind on the question.

Very large rewards were offered 1'i-r  information leading to the discovery*  of the culprits. The Government  offered $1000. the Messrs. Dunsmuir .  $1000 and lhe Miners Union $500.

ENGLISH CAPITAL FOR AMERICAN  MINES. *  Mr. Charl-is K. Tracy, who was  one of the law partners of President  Cleveland, was in Chicago last week  and said a sale had been made to the  New Elkhorn Mining Company. L'd,  of London, England, of nine Leadville claims for $1.500.000.. It has  taken nearly six months to reach  terms. All the mines were fully investigated by experts from London. This  deal, Mr.-Tracy considers,-a clear indication that the financial men of  .London are not. expecting war between'  the Empire, and the Republic.  Capt. Pluminer, manager of the De.  Lamar mines, an English company, lias-  made a thorough examination of the  Black Hornet property near Boise. It  >vas reported some time ago that he' had  secured it but there was a hitch somewhere, now there is said to be nothing in  the way of the sale but the result of the  sampling, which will be known in a few  days-. There are large bodies of ore  which are too low grade to ship, which  have been developed by green owners,  who have gophered out the high grade  mineral.

BY  IVOR  WATT.  Messrs. Spartan & Plowing prided  themselves upon IieiiiH tho best jowolU.rs  In Cartwloh. Tliey wore it very go-iilioad  Qrm; and in their window thu latest novelties in watches and clocks could always  be seen. Thoir selection of jowolry, and  ofthe most offensive modern "charms"  (as all sorts of foolish miiiliitnro pigs and  pilla,r-l>������xug uro cullod), was always up to  date.  One morning Mr. Plowing, the junior  partner, hognn to dance round tho shop,  excitedly pointing at, a parcel which lay  open on one ot tho glass-covered showcases.  "That -will fetch Rrightnian, our rival,"  ho said.  "What have you now?" said Mr. Spartan. "I hope none of thoso foolish 'novelties'���������messes I call thorn"  "Oil, that's all right, Spartan; it will  be sure to sell."  " Mr. Plowing," said the older man,  seriously, "if you have beon buying any  mole of that'stick and umbrella cigar-  case' or 'night-light matchbox,' or those  horrid 'beetle pouoil-oases,' I shall bo very  angry. When f asked you to go to London,  I meant you to get sensible things and���������"  "It's all right, sir, it's the phonographic  watch," said the junior partner, excitedly; "it, will sell like blazes"  "1 have never sold any blazes," said the  senior partner, with a reproving frown���������  "let mo see those talking 'tickers' "  The partners undid tlio wrappers In  which some fifteen watch ns wore encased.  They looked very harmless, and had the  stupid, over-conscientious look of tho ordinary watch.  "They aro all going." said Mr.Spartan,  after he had put each to his ear.  "It is ten minutes to nine," said Mr.  Plowing; "in ten minutes we shall hear  them speak. I bolieve one contains the  voico of Mr. Gladstone, and one a test  spoken by Archdeacon Farrar at eleven  o'clock, mid a sentence from the Archbishop of Canterbury's sermons."  The partners then arranged thu watches  In two rows upon tho desk, anil anxiously  awaited the hour. As the big clock over  tho shop began to wheeze preparatory to  striking, a tiny little voico was hoard to  proceed from one of the mild-looking  watche? on tho desk.  "Nine. Your father has gone down to  breakfast," it said, in tlie quiet, subdued  tones of a trained sorvant.  "A schoolboy's holiday watch, J suppose, "said Mr. Spartan. -  Mr. Plowing looked tor the words "your  father" in tho descriptive catalogue.   *   -  "Father   Christmas,  Father   Stanton,  Father Vaughan, Father your,'' he read.  "No.  9.2���������a young   lady's   watch,"   he  said.  "Nine. Quite-time to got up," said one  of tho watches, brightly.  Thon the others  saidr *>U talking at tho same time:~���������   "Nine. Open the letters and tako them  upstairs." _   ���������  "Nino. Mustn't forgot pencil and a scoring card���������also niblick." <--  '.'A golfer's watch," said Mr. Plowing.  "Nina Remember roll call."  ."In the city by nine."  "Nine o'clock, Tho labor we delight In  physios pain," said another, nlno o'clock."  "Nina Clear away tho hroakfasb  things. ������������������  "Nine.   Talk to cook about dinner."  "A'lady's watch that," interrupted Mr.  Spartan.  "Itis quite nine o'clock."  "It is nine o'clock now."  "Nine o'clock, Isav."  .    "Nine, old chap."  "Nine tailors mako a man."  Then no more was hoard. Mr. Spartan  stood amazed at tho Mxporionco, while Mr.  Plowing looked on witli tho air of a man  who was showing off something of which  he had a perfect  knowledge.  "I heard tho whole batch in London,"  he said. ~   -  11 Thoy aro wonderful littlo Instruments.  Tho Shakespeare quotation watch is a  little gem."  "Which wus the Gladstone watch?" said  Mr. Spartan. "In tho miniature babel of  tongues I did not distinguish it."  "It was tho oratorical-sounding ono.  Which said, - It Is quite nino o'clock,'"  said Mr.Plowing. "I'll repent tho message  for you." Ho consulted the catalogue,  thon picked out the watch, and pro-sud a  small pin..  "Itis quits nine o'clock," "rang out  from-h������ case in perfect imitation of.t-ho  impressive  tone_ of the Grand Old   Man.  "I suppose thero are singing watches,  and preaching watches, and ��������� musical  watches?"  "Yes,"'said Mr.   Plowing,  first   consignment   I   thought  speaking watch would be tho best, and as .;  yon generally entrust all purchases to mo.  I ordered this lot.    I hopo I have your ap- |  - proval?" **'' :  "Yes, thoy seem to be a very good in- ���������  vention,'"  you can shut off the mossago for (ravel,  ling. etc.. and dally uso; but at tlio sumo  time tho watch will repeat on opening tho  half-hunter case���������when tlio knob is turned on automatically���������whun lho message is  not turned off.  "Tho Phonographic  Watch Is  to   Speak  I-Joro To-day at Every Hour.  "Three quotation hours to each  watch.'������������������  Mossm. Spartan & Plowing went on  with chiiir ordinary biifhies-i until ton  o'clock. At I hat hour ono ol- I wo business  mon stopped ro hear the talking watch ou  their way to tho city, 'for tho shop was  situated intlio main road from thu suburbs  to tlio business part of Cartwich. Three  watches spoke, as Mr. Spartan thought it  moro economical to shut off tho others.  Ho kept tho "Gladstone* watch," which  quoted from Horace:  "Ten. JSIiou fugacos. . . labuntur  ainii." '  "Ton. Play up the hole," said the golfer's watch.  "It is ton o'clock," said tho other.  "Very amusing. What do0 they cost,  Mr. Spartan?" said one of tho businoss  men.  "Fiftoon guineas in gold, sir; any voico  j'ou euro to choo.o. Nino pounds in silver."  "Oh," said tho bnsinoss man. "Good-  morning. Thank you. I������m much obliged.  It is very Int eresti ng, I am sure."  As ho walked tin with his friend.ho said  dryly, "I don't think a man ought to keep  a gold watch if he can only afford a Wator-  bury."  At midday there was a great crowd assembled to hoar lho now watches in Messrs.  Spartan & Plowing's. Everybody admired ll-n littlo wonders and talked of getting  one lor some ono or other, but said that  pe; hups another (lay wonld do as woll  when thoy hrard tlio prlco. Somo mado  some slight purchases, but no one bought  a phonographic watch.  "Why did vou got fifteen of them, Plowing?" said Mr. Spartan, when they wore  arranging tho new watches to "spunk" at  one o'clock. "Five would have been quito  enough. Wo shall nover be able to get rid  of iit't-on at this price. Thoro aro not  enough rich people in Cartwich."  The junior partner was by no moans disheartened, for lie woll knew Mr. Spartan's  methods. Spartan used to leave all tho  purchases to his partner and then heap all  the abuse en his head if an article did not  sell woll. In this caso Mr. Plowing an-  swored bluntly that thero were quite  enough rich people-in Cartwich to warrant  his buying ilfteon of these now watches.-  " I bet wo sell some the first day," he  addod.  "Please do not use such expressions during business hours," said Spartan pompously. "You aro perfectly well aware  that! objoot to all betting and gambling."  "Ten to one on the Hold," was the answer in low tones.  "Mr. Plowing "Sir���������how. dare you, sir?"  said Mr. Spartan, red with ang_r.  "Excuse me, Spartan," said Mr. Plowing. "Don't get angry; it was the sporting watch which spoke���������that is the voice  of Tom Scrapper, the famous 'bookie.' "  '- "Then put it away, and turn on Dr.  Talmage," said his senior, accepting the  explanation,  At fivo minutes to ono Mr. Bunsner camo  In. He asked to soo tho now watch. Mr.  Bunsner was a vory rich manufacturer, and  spent his monoy very freoly. Spartan produced the watches and turned them on,  whilo Plowing explained all he knew _  about their mechanism in order to bridge '  over the interval until ono o'clock should  strike. A moment before the big clock  struck, the watches begun to talk; about  ten went off exaotly at. tho sumo tlmo,nnd  what thoy said could not bo distinguished.  All Mr. Bunsner heard was a rciuipo for  oeufs al a Norfolk from one watch, and  the excellent advice, "One o'clock, tako  your hands out of your pockets," from another.  "What's that ono?" said Mr. Bunsner,  eagerly.    "How much is it?"-  "Which,Mr. Bunsner, please?"  "The ono that said'Take your hands  out of your pockets.' It will do beautifully for my boy."  ���������'Oh, that's the schoolboy's watch sir;  lt has a lot of u-feul precepts. It has also  some football maxims, the chlof rules of  ���������good-behavio.j-and-soine'-hintHiipoii-keep--  ingpets. Tho whole to conclude with somo  nice homoly advice., in a lady's voico for  every night at ten. After that, if consulted, it says, 'Don't talk,-' and 'Go to  -loop,''" said Mr. Plowing, roading from  the dcscriptJvo catalogue "I-may add,  sir, that this watch has gained testimonials from several of the headmasters of pub- j  lie schools. Thus tho headmaster of a [  well-known . school wrote: 'Tho watch |  which recites tho rules of Greek accencua- !  tion and of tho Latin subjunctive during ;  play lipurs only, whilo recommending its ;  possossor to keep still and quiet and be-;  havo like a gentleman during school hours j  and at mealtimes, will, in my opinion, ���������  prove a valuanlo factor in tho education i  of young Englishmen in our public '.  schools.'" .  Mr. Plowing then  adroitly  skipped an  eloquent   description    of   the    Criliher's  watch, which could he supplied  in nickol ���������  for ������11 to  any  member of a sixth  form, _  undor cover and secretly packed.  }' What's tho price of this one,   thon?" j  saiifMr. Hunsnor.  "Nine pounds," said tho officious Plow-',  ing, pushing his way past Spartan.  'T will take that with me, please," said 1  Mr. lliuifuior.  -    > j  Mr. Bunsner took tho watch with him ;",  ho did not look at it during luncheon at tho j  'Conservative Club��������� tho,phonographic ap- '  paratus had been turned off, as lift did nob j  wish to ho surprised by ib during businoss i  hours, "Itinight toll mc to tako my hands !  out of mj' pockets, or to go on wiUi my!  work when ono of my clerks was in my j  room, and that would ho annoying,' he 5  said to himself, as he turned tho button, j  In spire of hi������ curiosity about what tho-j  watch would say next, iic restrained him- !  A servant came into the boy's room-a  few minutes bofore eight the next morning. Sho pulled up the blind and called to  tho sleopor.  ���������' Your hath is ready, Master Bertiei  you must get up."  !rho put his dressing gown and slippers  rondy and wont out of the room. Bertie  turned over and had a long discussion  with himself.  "Shall I get up? It will be awfully nice  to get up in a few minutes, I haven't had  onough sleep. It's very bad for one not to  have onough sloop, Another quarter of an  hour will do mc a lot of good. Well, perhaps a quarter of au hour is too long. I'll  go to sleep for another live minutes. Then  I really will get up. It will bo i-ulto time  enough by hurrying over my bath."  " Kight. Timo to get up now," said  somebody.  "Hallo, I'm dreaming. That wss ������  ghost, I suppose," said Bertie.  "Half-past eight.   Gotout."  "Nine. You have beon la bed too long;  get up," said somebody.  "What on earth Is it.!-"  " Ton.    Don't talk in school. "  "Kilovon. Hurry up to the other classroom."  Something had gono wrong with the  watch and nothing could stop It,  "Twelve. William thc Conqueror,  10.G."  "One.  Don't oat too fast at dinner."  "Two.    Don't run after eating."  Bortio gob up and looked all round the  room, under the bed, and in the cupboard.  " Ugh!" ho said to himself. "I must tie  going mad. I keep hearing horrible counting and peoplo saying things. There it is  again 1"  "Pour. Got ready for tea."  "Fiv.. Don't spoak with your mouth  full."  "Six. Change vour boots nnd brush your  hair."  Bertie screamed for help, and the servant camo rushing in.  ''Oh, Mary, I'm   mad.   And there art  .ghosts saying nasty things all round me.  Listen!"  Mary listened attentively, as did the  boy.  "Eight. To bed in an hour and a half   " was all they heard.  Mary fainted, and Bertie held his face  in his hands and  grovelled on the floor.  Suddenly he jumped up, tore down the  watch-pocket and held it to his ear.  " That's it," ho cried. It's this beast of  a watch that papa gavo me is mad; not  us. It is talking like Balaam's ass; here  goes!" and ho dropped the watch pocket  antl :-.ll into the jug; "We shan't hear it  thore," he said to himself, as he threw the  contents of tho water-jug over the servant  and called for help.  Mr. Bunsner rushed in and scolded hia  son for his ingratitude; thon seat Mary  away and administered corporal punishment.

The people of British Columbia are  worse served than any other people in  thu matter of mail service. Tt is  impossible to say whore the blame lies  whether it is the fault of the system or  of incompetent officers. The fact  remains that it is impossible to calculate how long a letter will take on any  given journey. Here are a few instances. A letter posted ut Sandon on  December 23 arrived at this ollice  on January 12. Of course the  Kaslo Slocan line was blocked during  that time, butthe Nakusp-_e Sloc,u>.  was open. Evidently the post master  at Sandon had not been given  the authority to send the mails round  that way. An important letter posted  in Nelson on Saturday did not reach  Spokane until the following Thursday.  There was no interruption to the  traffic. A letter posted here on the  2nd, inst. was not delivered to its  address in Kaslo until the 12th,���������ten  days afterwards:" Three steamers are  constantly running' between the two  places. Some little time ago an  arrangement was made to send mails  between Kaslo & Nelson by the s. s.  Albeita which makes fast daily trips  each way. The-post-office authorities  having been brought, to see the advisability of this step seem to have  exhausted themselves in the effort and  to be utterly incompetent, to carry out  the scheme. Instances of this kind  could be multiplied without end, but  our readers we in e afraid are only too  well aware of theni and to repeat more  would only be tiresome.  SOMEBOD Y ELSE'S' MONE Y. .  Last Monday week a preformance  was given by a company of strolling  players for the benelit of the Fire  Brigade, The arrangement was that  the company was to have 70 per cent.  ol the proceeds and the remaining 3(1  per cent, to go to the Brigade.   Hand-  _biHs_were.distrihiited__tJii_oug}_mit_^he_  town and many people who had no  intention whatever of going to the  show;bought tickets because they were  9old for the benefit of the Fire Brigade.  Many- other people bought; theni fbi-  the same reason and went.1'Now. it  appears.that up to the middle of this  week the funds of the Fire Brigade  have not been credited with their  share of the proceeds, which must  have been considerable. * We are  informed that a well known gentleman  who 'us always a liberal contributor to  every charity and public subset iption  in ��������� Nelson and who also holds air  official position in the Biigade, had  the arrangement of this affair, At the  conclusion of the performance he was  set much overcome by the emotions  naturally excited by the powerful acting of a .$20,000 drama that he handed  over all the takings to the players  refusing to accept -the per cent age for  the Fire Brigade.   The modesty with  . -which' he thus cloaked his own charity  is much to be commended, but at the  same time our u firemen are loudly cry  ing but for their share of the funds. .  No one can grumble at my Lord  Bountiful's prodigal liberality but it is  time he .remembered that the proper  place to take ,it from is his own pocket  not that of the Brigade.  A GREAT DAY. '  . Tuesday was a great day for Nelsou  and for all Canada as well. Copper  smelting promises to be one of the  -Dominion's chief industries,- and ��������� on  Tuesday last the first,copper smelter,  was blown in at Nelson. It will  .speedily be followed by -one at Trail  which may be at work in time to have  its commencement chronicled in this  issue*  It  is pretty  generally   understood  that both atNelson and'Trail the plants  that.are now started are likely  before >  longtobevery largely increased in their'  capacity.   The two smelters together I  are capable of dealing with 200 tons of :  ore a day.   The Trail Creek   output,  already far exceeds the capacity of its  new    reduction   works,    and   in   the  country tributary to Nelson" there is  ore. enough to keep, several" stacks  going.,. Apart from the copper and  gold ores .immediately around Nelson,  there are the Goat River, Crawford  Creek, and White. Grouse mountain  camps, in all of which high grade ore  with silver and gold exists. The Goat.  River camp has had most work done  on it, and some sales indicative of  active operations have ' recently been  made of White Grouse mountain"  properties. The owners of claims at  Crawford Creek, some 15 miles in from  the lake thought well enough of their  property to build a trail in. Their  efforts were ' certainly afterwards  partly recompensed by a government  grant. With a copper smelter in full  operational Nelson there is no reason  whatever why the ore from these  camps should go out of the country,  It can be floated almost to the jaws of  the furnace.  : Whatever may have been said in the  past about the procrastination of the  English company, no fault can b.  found with its activity since the.  ���������present policy was decided on. Work-  in every department has been pushed  on with a vigor that could not be'  beaten by our energetic cousins from  ��������� icross the boundary. Besides the  nctiial work at the mine itself, during  the last six months; the tramway has  been built, the largest of its kind in  ihe world.- The smelter has' been  erected. The-branch line of railway  connecting the works with the C.P.R.  has been put in. There was uo delay  when once it was determined to make  a move.  The series of events remains to  receive the -perfection of a dividend,  and to this consummation of their  hopes we think that the shareholders  may shortly look forward.  PUBLIC EXPENDITURE.  Owing to the counter attractions of  the Hospital ball and the skating rink  the. attendance at Mit. Hume's inpet  ing on Wednesday night was not so  largp as it ought to have been. Our  member may- take it as a compliment  that very many of his constituents  were content to leave serious business  matters in his hands while they went  elsewhere and enjoyed themselves.  The expenditure,, requested by  Nelson . is not heavy. For the town  a new gaol and some little'street  improvement are all that is asked for.  Of the necessity of the former there is  no question and in.fact we believe  that it has already been decided on.  The hitter is so trivial as to require no  comment.- There is however one point  which should be mentioned, Nelson is  a Government townsite. Very large  .blocks of lots still .remain unsold in  the Government's hands. The Government receives all the taxes and is also  in the place.of the townsite owners or  municipality.' It, is therefore responsible for the proper ordering of the  streets and other public necessaries..  We make these remarks because we'  notice that our Rossland friends are  also asking for Government aid in  giading theii streets. There they are  in quite a different position. The town  is private property. The owners of  lots, bought them at high prices from  private individuals.. They.could see at  the time the state of the streets and  the question .of formation and improvement-lies between the present  holders���������of-^-lots_Land=__the_original-  proprielors of the townsite.  The other requests' which are to be  made, are for assistance-in building  trails into Sheep Creek. White Grouse  mountain, and at -Eight Mile Creek  and ihe clearing out of the old trail-up  the Slocan River. These are all  matters directed to the assistance of  the miner in, this part of the district  and are, distinctly justified by this  showing already developed in the  places they are designed to reach.  " fn addition to these an increased  grant for the hospital is to be asked  for and lhe Government is again to  be asked to remove the powder magazine* which in its present-position is a  standing menace to the town. It  would be a serious matter to the town  and to .the shareholders of. the Hall  mines * if by an accident which is  liable to occur any day the whole of  the' new smelter and the, other works  were to be demolished, which would  certainly, happen if that magazine  went up, as magazines, so often do.  ; - A CONTRAST.  We stated the other day-, that the  Venezuelans would be much better off  as British colonists than, they are  under what they are. pleased to call a  republic. It is pleasant to find that.we  have such a powerful ally in our views  on this matter as. the New York  World. Here are some extracts from  that journal on the subject; "Of  course Venezuela is called a republic,  as Great Britain'is-called a monarchy-;  .but if we go behind the. names and  consider the facts, what do we find,_-  Are ��������� the institutions of Venezuela  republican? Is its government popular?  It is notorious that in Latin America  the majority of the so called republics  are military dictatorships-tempered by  periodical revolutions. In the intermediate periods between successive  dictatorships their condition* is one cf  anarchy. During the reign of each  military tyrant the forms of republican  government are observed; elections  are held by ballot; but the purity ot  the ballot is protected by troops and  the success of the government candi  dates is assured by the show of armed  force.- During the periods of revolutionary anarchy all traces of republicanism . disappear. ��������� There is no  security for life or.property except in  the case of foreigners who are protected by the war vessels of-their  respective countries. It is'notorious  that Venezuela is a government of  this sort."  It is worth while to take a glance at  the history of Venezuela. Its independence was recognized by Spain in  18-15. There-were revolutions in 1851),  1805. 1870, ]_7_ and 1892 all successful  except that of 1872. There have been  12 separate presidents in 50 years some  of them being re-elected (after revolutions) more than once. Don Guzman  BLANCO who succeeded J-*Ar.GAU as  president in 1870 was practically  dictator of the conntry for 10 years or  more. During that period he robbed  the country of millions allowing no  mans rights to stand in the way of his  ambition or woman's reputation to  restrain his passions. The present  president Gknehal Crksi-o overturned his predecessor by a revolution  only 4 years ago. "This is the  republic" continues the World "which  we- are called upon to protect in the  name and lor the sake of liberty.  This is the sort of government we are  tb aid in maintaining, to the end that  our own good republican morals may  not be' corrupted by evil monarchical  communications * * * * The  danger which more seriously threatens  popular government to-day is not  monarchy, but anarchy.  And what kind of a monarchy is  Great Britain? Is its government  less popular than that of Venezuela?  Is it - less popular than that  of the United States even? Conservative -English statesmen 'including  Loud Salisbury have lamented the  fact that England is becoming a more  democratic country than our own  * * * * Sin Henry Maine  declares that we have preserved in our  presidency the monarchy of George  III. * * * One of the most  brilliant of French political writers declared that Great Britain is a republic  with an hereditary president, and the  United States a monarchy with an  elective king. Tlie present exhibition  of the .power of our executive, by his  personal decision, to bring our country  to the verge of war is a striking confirmation of these assertions."  Amidst all the mad babel of war  cries that are ringing through the  Amei ican press it is good to find common sense and truth of this kind.  WANTED.  TKACIIEK for the Waneta Public School.

President Cleveland must have been  very short sighted to include in his  opi'iiinx message to Congress, the  announcement, of a new loan and a  bellicose statement- of his relations  with England. The latter being  .,<Lui<.LIy followed by his now famous  'me..ia-_- on the Venezuelan question is  likely to make his chances of getting  the money remote even at a very high  price.  It is pretty well known that, the  great firm of Rothschild ifc Co. have a  good deal to .ay as to the price and  the success of foreign loans. This is  what they say i i reply to a telegiam  from the New York World; "Until  this boundary quest ion is arranged we  do not believe that either the European  public or capitalists will t.-ike any  American bonds for investment and  we believe that although a certain  number of people on this side of the  Atlantic have signified their intention  of taking a share in a syndicate to he  formed in New York, they have only  .done so in the belief that at the present  moment they would obtain t.riiis  which would enable them at onee to  resell the bonds in America. When  the political horizon ia quite clear, and  it is finally established in the minds of  all men that the'good feeling and  understanding v������hich exists in the  hearts of the people of England and  America is beyond doubt, and is  acknowledged and ratified by the two  -governments, then ..'will be the time  and opportunity for America to apply  to British capitalists. We offer no.  suggestions how this is to be accomplished. It is for the governments to  decide between themselves. All we  can say is that good feeling exists  'among our people on this side, and  you, sir, have proved bv yonr patriotic  efforts that it. exists on the other side  of the Atlantic."  MINING NOTES.  (From our Exchanges.  Venezuela, which has such present  prominence, yields about $1,000,000, in  gold annually.  Powder is ou the rise, and a cent a  < pound advance iu dynamite is imminent.  Since Oct. 1 glycerine has advanced 3  cents per pound, being now quoted at 12..  Though doing considerable busiuess,  no_e of the California powder companies  are. making much , money, owing to  excessive competition.'.  - Iu '40 came the California mining excitement, in '59 Pike's Peak, iu '69 White  Pine, in 79 Leadville, lu '89 South Africa.  '91 is "49" reversed .and tbe raining  activity that began iii '94 bids fair to  exceed in extent and value the first  named period. California is destined to  nee greater stir in gold mining than ever  before.  Col. Lightner is superintendent of tbe  Cinnabar mine, Savonas, B.C. Twenty-  three men are at work, all but four being  e* white miners. No smelting is being done  at present. Drifts are being riiu and the  xnioe opened. This mine is said to be the  only producing quicksilver <r_ine in operation under the protection of the British  James Jackson, an educated Indian,  personally carries the mails from Juneau  to Fort Cudaby, on , the Yukon river,  Alaska. He uses 20 strong dogs to pull  the sleds across the mountains to the  " Canadian postoffice oh Forty Mile creek.  This service is a private enterprise, being  maintained by miners, who pay fifty cents  for each letter. The Canadian government guarantees $350 for each of two  round trips.

In Genoa there are regular marriage  brokers, who have pocketbooks lilled  with tho namos of marriageable girls of  the different classes, with notes of their  figures, personal attractions, fortune and  other circurtistances. Theso brokers go  about endeavoring to arrange connections in the same offhand mercantile  manner which they would bring to bear  upon a merchandise transaction, and  when they succeed they get a commission of 2 or 3 per cent upon the portion,  with such extras or bonuses a.s may be  voluntarily bostowed by the party. Marriage at Genoa is thus oftentimes simply a matter of business calculation,  generally settled by tho parents or relations, who often draw up tlio contract  before the parties have soon one another,  and it is only whon everything else is  arranged aud a few days previous to  tho marriago ceremony that tho futuro  husband is introduced to his partner for  life. Should he find fault with her manners or appearance ho may annul the  contract on condition of defraying tfc.  brokerage and any other expenses incurred.:���������London Sun.

Jonbert, tho French moralist whose  "Thoughts" had great success, was so  odd and ori.'.inal that a witty woman  declared he guvo her the idea of a soul  which had met by chance with a body  that it had to put up with and do with  as well as it could.  His friend and editor, Chateaubriand,  described him as an egotist who was  always thinking of others. His ambition was to be perfectly calm, yet no  one betrayed so much agitation as lie.  In eating and in taking exercise he  was as inconstant as a coquette. For several days he would live on milk; then  for ��������� a week he would eat nothing but  hash. On one day he would be jolted in  a carriage a full trot over tho roughest  roads; on the next ho would bo drawn  slowly through the smoothest alleys.  Ho had a library of mutilated books,  for when ho read he used to tear out of  a book thc pages that displeased him.���������  Youth's Companion.  White Handled Razors.  There are many harbors who will not  own a white handled razor because of  in old superstition that bad luck goes  With it. A razor is to the barber what a  locomotive is to the engineer,'and there  are more things to learu about.it than  one would suppose. For instance",- t.here  are razors that will cut certain qualities  of hair better at certain seasons th. ,**, at  Others. Climato and weather iiave a  great deal to do with razors. Some will  cut better in cold weather, and some f'  hot. These are only a few of the causes  that affect razors, and they and niany  more all tend to make the barber who  does much work keep accumulating razors until ho has all sorts to pick from.  ���������Kansas City Journal.
