Morif Work i'or the .Monroe Doctrine.  It is  stated  that   a rupture between  - Brazil and Italy is imminent owing to  Brazil's-tardiness in satisfying Italian  olaims arising out of the civil war in  Brazil.  A special dispatch to a* New York  paper from Buenos Ayres, says: France,  through her minister, lias informed the  Brazilian government that she agrees to  arbitration of the Amapon boundary  question, She will, however, absolutely  refuse to discuss the -details of the affair  of May, 18!)5, in which French subjects  were attacked iu tbe Amapon territory.  In this incident .she insists that the  Brazilian official- shall be dismissed from  office in the contested territory, and that  they be punished without delay.  Brazil has demanded the immediate  evacuation of the..Island of Trinidad by  . Great Britain and has sent a "man-of-war  to enforce her demand. The British minister has handed to the-Brazilian foreign  office a letter from Lord Salisbury, in  which are embodied the points held for  England's claim to tbe Isiaud of Trinidad. The prime minister says that while  the British are in actual possession in  the exercise of a concilitory spirit, the  government is willing to accept arbitration as a means of determining rightful  ownership. Brazil must. reply definitely  as to whether she shall approve of this  proposition at the end of the current  month, or on February 21. The note  further says that when the British parliament opens, the declaration that  England occupies Triuidada will be announced in the*-' Queen's speech and that  unless Brazil gives reason for delay in  arbitrating the dispute, by showing better proofs of ownership than" those  already advanced, the island is lost to  the republic.  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  uosslAnd.  The Le  Roi   mine   shows 15   feet  of  clean ������500 ore at a depth of 400 feet from  the surface.  A contract is about to be let to drive  100 feet iu tho lower . lunnel of  the St. Elmo.  The" Spokesman-Review is authority  for the statement that a bill has passed  the senate enabling the Red Mountain  Railway to cross the Colville reservation.  It is reported that the War Eagle  Company will erect a reduction plant  during the current year. The site has  not, yet been selected aud it, may be  either at Kossland or Northport.  Mr. Corbin has secured an injunction  from lho Supreme Court of British  Columbia against the tramway people  for trespassing on his lands. * Sir; Corbin  asks for an engineer's report ou the advisability of changing the location of tlie  tram line.  \V. M. Newton presided at a meeting  held in the opera house last week for  the purpose of discussing the advisability  uf incorporating the town. A vote  takeu resulted in 41 to 8 iu favor of incorporation. The meeting adjourned  until later in the week, when the results  were embodied iu thc following resolution :  "Whereas the citizens of Rossland, in  ���������miss meeting assembled, have unaui-  .ji'i.v-ly expressed their desire for the  incorporation of the town; and  "Whereas incorporation by private bill  will be au expensive matter; therefoie  be it  "Resolved that an executive committee  of nine be appointed, of whom thc chairman (Mr. Newton) shall bo one, to draft  a petition, asking the government to  pasfj a special amendment to the general  muui-ipal' act permitting the town of  Rosslaud to incorporate uuder, the  provisions of that act on giving three  months' notice, instead of as now required  hy law."  The committee consists of Messrs.  Newton, Kedciiu, Boultbee, Watterson.  Hunter, isowoa. Clute, McDonnell and  McCutcheon.  MIDWAY.  Messrs.

A new lead of nearly four feet of galena  ore has beeu opened.  A one-fourth interest in the Last  Chance claim, located in Smith's camp,  has been sold lo E. L. Tate, ot Spokaue,  for 82,500. The ore is silver-lead, with a  small value in gold, which will have to  be concentrated before it can be shipped  with profit.  Charles King, geologist, and a party of  stockholders are inspecting the Old  Dominion mine. This mine now has a  daily capacity of 75 tons of second grade  ore, which runs 8120 per ton. The first  class ore runs much higher. Tt is expected that the result of the examination  will be the_erection of au immense plant  ou the property.  II. S. Earnest, superintendent of the  Clugston Creek iron claims, has just  closed a contract to furnish the Pilot  Bay smelter 00 tons per week of iron ore.  The Nelson '^smelter has also placed a  trial order, which, if satisfactory, will  lead to a large increase iu busiuess.  JKASLO.  Edwin Cummiugs has purchased the  Hotel Slocau and is now busy renovating  the establishment. .New furniture and  fittings throughout will render the house  one of thc most comfortable in the Slocan  country.

Finch has given further proof of  his confidence iu  the mineral prospects  of the country at the foot of Slocau'Lake  by bonding tbe Arlington No. 2 aud, Burlington No.   2   for the sum  of   S50.000.  These claims are six  miles up Springer  Creek aud were located in the fall of 94 j  by Fielding and Cooper who   brought ]  down some .wonderfully rich specimens [  from the claims.. Last spring the locators I  did about two hundred dollars worth of  work on the .Arlington since  when  the  claims have not been touched.   It is improbable that work  will be commenced  until the end of March.  A meeting of delegates from _New  Denver, Sandon aud Three .Forks was;  held at Three Forks on the 21st to con - j  sider what legislation and appropriation |  should be asked for on behalf of the:  Slocan district. The meeting was un- j  animous and the"following is the gist of i  the principal resolutions. j  That forfeiture for neglecting tq take i  out or renew a free miners' certificate I  be abolished: that no act be passed!  authorizing any company to stake more I  than one claim on the same ledge; that j  coowuers be compelled to do or pay for  their share of the anuual assessment  work; that the Slocan district be made a  separate administrative district; that a  hospital be subsidized in the district;  that an appropriation, be made for a  stipendiary magistrate ' for the district;  that a wagon road be built from New  Denver to couuect with the trunk road at  Three Forks; that money be granted iu  aid aud exteusion of trails built by prospectors on creeks flowing into Slocan  lake; that a grant be given in aid of protection against fire at Three Forks aud  Sandon; and that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the Premier  aiid the member for the district.

To The Kditor of The Minbu. *  'The last letter contained a glance at  the Alberni district from Mineral Hill  to a point some !) miles down the Canal  from the town of Alberni. Beghiing  at this point we will now proceed  down the east side of the Canal. Three  miles below is the first important  group located on the Tchesnucnod  creek. Over a, dozen claims have been  located here by Victoria people and a  sufficient amount of capital has been  secured to give the ground a thorough  test early in the spring. Another jump  bf,3 miles lands us al Coleman creek.  Here- is found one ofthe most remarkable deposits in the entire district.  The main lead; if lead it can be called,  is from 20 to 00 feet wide. It is a mass  of igneous conglomerate formed from  decomposed quartz, diorite and schist".  The mixture is evidently the result of  some local secondary disturbance and  on the surface a black oxide adds to its  volcanic appearance. Tests of the  lock show that it carries well in free  gold. If this will continue with depth  the property is of immense value.  This group was located for a syndicate  of.Island capitalists by a^alaried prospector. The company tnten employed  an expert to examine the property and  on the strength of his report have a  gang of men at work. Should the  winters work warrant it a mill will be  pub up next summer. A little further  .down the Canal, and on the other side,  a few locations have been made and  some prospecting done. The latter  was, unfortunately abruptly stopped  by a severe snow storin*aiid remains  suspended for the winter. So far as  can be learned the indications are very  favorable.  AL the head of Barclay sound from  the mouth of- the Canal toward the  open ocean, is the Copper Island  district. Copper Island is some 2  miles wide by-1 long., On the east  side of the Island some good locations  have been made. ' The country rock is  a diorite with intcrbedded bands of  quai'tzite and calcareous matter. The  leads are chalcopyritic, and, while  strong and wide, are of rather low  grade. The Rainbow claim is a good  example. There is found about 4 feet  of ore between hard and well defined  walls. The assay returns run from $S  to $12 according to reports. The lead  is at the waters edge. A few hundred  dollars spent in a wharf will enable  vessels to load direct from the bins,  The same can be said of several other  properties on the island.  North of Alberni the belt has been  traced for a number of miles and  niuiier.o_us_loc.-Uons_inade.___No__work_  to ypcak. of has been done. The surface  indications tire.of considerable bodies  of low grade rock. The margin of  profit per ton, even with most careful  local treatment, will be small and  large works will be necessary. Capital  bas so;m..iiy tempting opportunities  in Biitish Columbia at the, present  time that it is reasonable to expect  that this section will have to await its  turn which may not come for 2 or 3  years yet. Those who tire able to hold  on and wait for this will in most cases  do well.  Nothing has as yet been said of tbe  placer and hydraulic features of this  section. These are extensive and"of  sufficient; interest to warrant treatment in a seperate letter.  Clll-'l* CllAlCO.

Tragic Ending to a  String of Crimes at  Colville.  In our last issue we narrated at  length the history of Adolph Niese. It  was set forth how he murdered his-  wife and her infant by setting fire to  his dwelling while the poor woman,  was lying weak and helpless within.  With devilish cunning he took iidvantage of his crime to rob the insurance  company. Before the ashes of his  wife were cold he married horsister,  who could scarcely have been ignorant  of the manner of her sister's death.  Naturally the district wheie these  crimes were committed was too hot  to hold the culprit and he came  with his new wife and the children by  his former wife to Colville. Here he  has lived for some time. But the  presence of the innocent children was  a continual living rebuke to the vile  couple who were so deeply steeped in  crime. Their innocent faces must have  perpetually kept alive the terrible  remorse and fear that gnaws'the life  from a murderer's heart. A system of  cruelty, neglect and starvation at  length ended in the death of one of the  little boys. The inhuman fiends ' endeavored to cloak their crime with  pretence of heart disease and even  went so far as to invent a story of a  fall over a cliff to account for certain  bruises. But their inventions were of  no avail, and in Judge Anthur's court  last week they were, tried and convicted, not of murder in the first  degree, as might have been expected,  but of manslaughter, and were sentenced to 20 years in the penitentiary.  For some reason or other the  wretched pair, after their sentence,  were confined in tlie same cell. On  Tuesday the gaoler hearing an unusual  noise in their cell immediately investigated it. He found both prisoners  locked in each others arms with blood  pouring from gaping wounds in their  throats. The man was dead, but the  woman, though insensible, was still  alive. A doctor was speedily summoned and on examination found that  no serious damage was done to the  woman, who is now recovering and  will probably survive to undergo the  living torture of 20 years' hard labor.  The instrument with which the final  act to this tragedy of crimes was committed, was a piece of a brozen razor  which Niese had  managed  to secrete.  CIUJKCH NOTICES.  Sunday, February 2, 1890.

This was the title given to a series of  three lectures just delivered in the Oddfellows'Hall, Nelson, by Mr. Geo.-Wise,  anti-infidel lecturer of London, Eng^  The subjects on which ho spoke were  "God or no Cod, Which?", yJesus Christ  the Supreme Miracle of History," "Does  death cud all?" These were attended by  good audiences aud considerable interest  was created. For the first time in Nelson  the sceptics and unbelievers have had an  opportunity ot hearing their theories and  objections dealt with by one who has  debated with the leading- infidels of  Eu'glaud, including Mr. Chas. Watts  who for twelve years was lecturer for the"  American Secular- Union. Altliough  discussion was invited none was forthcoming, which' surprised the lecturer, as''  he seems to have gal her. d that* he would  be replied to by some" of the leading  sceptics in British Columbia. Several  pertinent questions were put aud satisfactorily answered.  _ Mr. Wise showed in his first lecture  that the origin aud'maintenance of the  universe could uot be accounted for on  the negative hypothesis of atheism, and  that God considered simply as atheistic  postulate was/a requirement of human  reason. Here'the lecturer made several  apparently astounding assertions i.e.,  "'That there has never been an Atheist  whether philosopher or scientist, who  has ever made an original disc-very for  the good of mankind." In the second  lecture Mr. Wise said, "If is now acknowledged by every authority of,. advanced  thought "that Jesus Christ is the central  figure of the world's history."' John  Stuart Mill speaks ofChrist as "a" unique  figure'* Reuau says"history "wouldt be  altogether ineoihpreheifsible'.without him*'  Thomas Fame ' nays" "His morality has  not been surpassed by auy." The third  lecture was moi e au appeal to ihe passive  part of our nature * than to the intellect  and perhaps on this account si rack us as  less forcible than the two former lectures.  However, the lecturer gave several  strong points iu favor of his position.  We. believe that these lectures will be  loug remembered by those who heard  them and trust that they will have proved  helpful to some.  LOCAL   NEWS.  Thu navigation on the Arrow Lakes  is agaiii clear of ice and the s.s.  Nakusp is making her regular trips.  W. T. Jennings, a well-known  Toronto engineer, was seen recently at  Lethbridge and stated that the British  Columbia Southern would he build  without fail this year.  As will be seen by a card elsewhere  Messrs. Cherbo and Booth have reutted  the Royal Hotel and propose to open up  in good shape iu a few clays. A first class  French chef will be iu charge of the  kitchen.  A social entertainment under the  name of "Your Own Birthday Party'*  will be held iu the Methodist churi-h.  under the auspices of the Ladies' Aid.  on the evening of Wednesday, Feb.  5th. An enjoyable time for everybody.  All are invited.  W. A. Harrison ctime into town on  Ttiesdav bringing specimens of good  looking" quartz from two claims that he  has recently staked in the Upper Arrow  Lake comitrv. One claim the High Bluff  is actually ou the shore of the lake and  the other the Little Tuesday is on the  line of the N. & S. railway.  Mr. Alexander Skinner, late of Mea-  ford, Ontario, has decided to cast in  his lot with Kootenay and will open  a law office in Nelson. Although Mr.  Skinner is a duly qualified barrister of  Ontario he will have to pass an exam-  ation in this province and to become  domiciled here for 0 months before he  presents himself before the examiners.  The Zera Semon show at the Odd-  Fellows hall last night filled the house.  Semon is certainly very clever and some  ot his "magic" as good as could be seen  anvwhere. Little Lawrence is an able  assistant, aud the minstrels, while a  shade below --C-ristie" and evidently  amateurs, often showing ptouounced  "stage fright," helped to make an hour  and ii half of first rate fun.  Two new stores are going np on Bake'r  street betweeu the Silver King hotel and  Squire's. They are being built by Mr.  Miibee for A. C. Buchanan of Vernou.  who will occupy ono a's a general grocery.  The other is to let iind there are already  several applicants for it. We believe  that Baker street will be built solid I'rom  Josephine street to Stanley street before  oiany months are put.  The difficulty of procuring firewood  is becoming every day more severe in  Nelson, anil any device for economm-  ing heat should be welcomed. The  do'ums manufactured and patented by  George Stevenson, of this town, will  make the heat given out by one st.uv.*  sufficient to warm several looms.  They have been fitted' into Titi!  MiNKR. office and are very successful.  The Canadian General Electric Co. has  established a representative here in the  person of Mr. Frank Darling. -The  speciality of this company, which by the  way supplied the machinery for the  electric light in Nelsou, is the tiansiuis-  sion ot power and it is therefore likely to  be found useful iu this "couutry where  there is so much water poweP running to  wtistc that could be profitably used at  the mines. Mr. Darling has not yet  taken an office and is to be found tit thc  -Hotel Phair.  THE ELECTRIC LIGHT.  THE CARNIVAL.  Last Saturday night the skating rink  presented a lively appearance. Queens  of the night, and tramps, new women aud  old women, court pages and curly headed  black imps, fat men and yankees glided  bTThesi^-tiU^l-slnirr^  Tho ice kept in pretty good order until  the end of the evening when under the  combined influences of soft weather and  the perpetual grind of keen blades it  broke up rather badly. Prizes' for the  best costumes were awarded asfoHows:  licst gentleman, E. Madkius (Page).  Best lady, Mrs. Sansom, (Night). Best  comic gentleman, -I. Wyatt, (Tramp).  Best "comic lady, C. Donogli, (New  Woman). Other dresses worthy of mention were Mrs. MacDonald, (Night), J- F.  Squires, (American abroad), 1_. Russell,  (New Man), Buchanan, (Dage), P. (ioepel,  (Uttle "Miss Moflit). The ice is scarcely  lit to skate on now, Thursday, but one  good frost will put it into good condition  again. ���������=' * _  .THK SMKliTBIl.    -  On Thursday afternoon it wns found  necessary to blow out, the smelter in  order to eiu'ct some necessary repairs.  -A leak had" broken out in the water  jacket just above the spout from which  the matte is drawn forth. It \va?  practienlly impossible to effectually  repair this without stopping work.  The moment the familiar throb of  the blower ceased its drum, aud the  "yellow smell" no longer poured forth  to mix with the pure mountain air, the  news that, the smelter had stopped  spread through .the town'. The stoppage was generally attributed .to the  fact tliat the .���������tramway was unable  to bring down ore fa*t. enough to keep  the furnace going. This view .of the  case we are happy to say was incorrect.  There were some 000 toils of-ore still  in the bins when work was .-topped.  Itl|is true that the tramway is not  yet working quit'* satisfactorily, but  the cause is known and i-* easily ox-  plained. It will be remembered that  certain of the sheaves in the towers  wl������*re the heaviest strains came were  found to be faulty and'lvere replaced by  oiht'is of better make. But the injury  ,d"iie hy thesi? f.-iulty sheaves to,, tlie  clip-i that Isold the buckets on to the  ropi* is riot yet eradicated.

The importance of protecting the  public forests from the disastrous fires  which every 'year spread with alarming  regularity in new countries is attracting  a very great deal of attention. In many  places where lumber was plentifully  available it is now hard to get and  whole forests tbat might, have suppliu I  the wants of the world tor years to come  have been swept out of existence in a  few hours. Our government with wise  prevision is introducing a bill totryj.*  prevent the wanton waste. In the United  States, Representative Shafrotb nil-  introduced a bill into Congress for the  same object.- His method is to cut great  swathes 1000 feet wide through the forests  at intervals of five or ten miles. Qn  many of these the timber cut would pay  for the expense of clearing aud a sum of  half a million dollars is to be set aside  for the work on others where the lumber  would uot be marketable.    . : '<���������  Very heavy punishment- are provided  for iucendiarism caused either wilfully  or by carelessness^ and the Uuited State*  troops are to pattoi ihe districts to detect  offenders.

THE MINER, NELSON, _.'_., STURDAY, FEBRUARY i, 1S96.  Dade Harkins; Wedding  By VIOLA E0SEB0EO.  (Couth.ned   from Last Week.)  and pnt her off with saying he'd see  about it after the wed,.ing; that ho must  take her to that.  Harry cursed himself for a fool and  carried himself bravely, with a sinking  heart, but qv.ito without that self seeking, domincfvin-.' r;pirit- of pursuit that  ���������women lovo in lovers. He had heard, it  ib true, of coijuerrir:', retreats and fencing on tho part of women in lovo .:I'fairs,  and on these traditions he tried to hang  a slender hope.  Whatiu tho world would ever become  of sincore lovers, handicapped by the  helpless simplicities and duplicities of  youth, in a society wheru they aro left  to work out their own salvation, if it  were not for tho faint guidance offered  by the literature of lovo stories I "  Bnt already the ring had been sent  for. Three days passed, aud tho wedding  was at baud. Nearly all his guests from  the hotel wero to mako the journey to  Art Harkins' in "a big wagon, " sitting  upon straw piled in its bed.  Harry had given up the hope of the  buggy ride with Charley. He was afraid  to propose it lest he should bo refused,  but under tho encouragement of ber  smiles the same idea had enterod the  brain of tho other young man. He engaged tho buggy and engaged Charley  to rido in it.  So lightly did Mrs. Peytee carry her  duties that she climbed into tho big  wagon, ignorant of this littlo game of  puss in the corner and supposing Harry  was carrying out tbe campaign be had  sketched her. Her mind was uncommonly preoccupied with plans for the subjugation of the colonel, who bad been  showing of lato a coquetry unbecoming  a gentleman aud a solider, particularly  one so rheumatic.  Harry saw Charley depart in a bittor:  ness of soul too deep lo bo profaned by  the pen of such a light minded character  as myself. Then, his feet carrying him  as if with a volition of their own, he:  started to walk through the woods to  Harkins', thc place whero ho could look  upon her onco moro. There was no reason to srtppoM'thut in any caso ho would  not seo her frequently for years to come,  but be did not. think about that. He felt  as if that night bounded life.  As Harry came out of the primitive  forest upon the wood pile that occupied  Art Harkins'- front yard ho could see  through, tho door of trio .dog house, by  the light,of the littlo festal fire burning  in the big fireplace, tho newly arrived.  guests as they groetod Mrs. Harkins and  the white gowned, rod armed bride.  Mrs. Harkins, in her purple calico, met  the occasion with the true mountaineer's unspoiled, easy cordiality, blessed-.  ly unconscious of any real social distinctions betweeu white folks. Dade  showed an assurance of a different nature. Thero was a something in her  hearty welcome that mi;;ht bo attributed to a tolerable understanding of the  business of the coal company, bnt similarly fortifying knowledge failed to confer the same ease upon her father. He  shifted uneasily about the room, wearing, sure enough, his, broad bat upon  ���������his head, but touching it politely when  any of the ladies spoke to him, and behind him, when ho could get there, kept  the shamefaced groom elect, sunk in  that peculiarly painful misery which  Apes delight and marks the man in his  position the world over. .  Barry watched Charley as she gently  iniisted upon speaking to him and bont  ber tact to lightening., his sufferings for  an instant. Then as she disappeared  from his view he camo on, as.if pulled  . by a string, and after speaking to his  hostess stationed himself whore, from  ~acrbss"the"room,"he'could-best-see-her.-���������  Besides the hotel party only the white  haired old circuit riding preacher and  ; a few of tho Harkins' kinspeople were  ! present, but these, with the family, were  enough to establish their own rigid rule  of etiquette upon the company. Every  one was'.'forced to* feel that the least  gayety or relaxation ".would bo n grave  indecorum, and the occasion was marked by much the same manners as prevail at ..funerals. When the company  wore all seated, the young couple left  ���������the-room, aiid three miiiutes passed,  'during which silence prevailed or was  broken only by whispers. Before they  knew it Harry and Charley caught thcin-  Luscuir-. conee unci cake. Tlie hotel people tried now to give something of that  jollity to tho occasion that had characterized it in their previous imaginings,  out they were under a saddening spell,  ind besides, not realizing that the wedding feast was to come so early, they had  supped at homo and were not hungry,  arid this in itself was depressing.  Harry soon lost the cheer tho meeting  glances had given him. Charley was  bearing herself toward him with all  tho unconscious indifference she had  worn for days past and was again do-  votiug herself to palliating tho sufferings of tho lonfcof a bridegroom. Harry  wondered that her father could consent  to let her como to such a place. It was  not a desirable thing for a young lady to  meet such people, however it might do  for others.  After tho supper tho preacher at onco  and finally disappeared, and, lo la change  immediately made itself felt on all  sides. Everybody, whilo tho "second table" wiis eating, was smiling, trying to  talk. Soon all were moving about, and  the affability of all who knew how to  ���������90 affable was welcomed, even iii ahelp-  /pss way by the young Harkinses. Soon  au old white headed negro with a fiddle  slipped into ; !io main room, seated himself in a co: ...r ��������� and immediately occasioned much chuckling interchange of  sly looks and humorous comment. All  sections of the party, so to speak, sympathized in the point of view that induced theso demonstrations, for it was  cert-ai:i that a iiiiinber.of church mom-  bcrs of various degrees of social eleva-  ti m would danco tonight and repent  t.norrow, or at- loast when they wero  duly "disciplined" for their fall.  Tho dancing began, the old negro calling out the frruresof the quadrilles and  having a great deal to say about u "busy  bee." That busy boe was an old acquaintance of every one present and  helped, as it had done many a time before, to lighten a feeling of good fellowship all around, for Uncle Ned for a lifetime had withstood all arguments in favor of tho use of tho moro usual term of  vis-a-vis.  The young Harkinscs woro transformed, and with confident good will asked  ladies to dance with them,ladies whose  Lifted her from the doorstep.  existenco till but now thoy had ignored,  and their, dancing, by tho way, though  a trifle more energetic than is.fashionable, was not bad.  For a time all went swimmingly,  though the demoralizing features of social democracy grew upon Harry when  ho asked Charley to danco with him,  only to be told that she had already  promised moro dances than she expected to perform.  A now quadrille was just forming  when something happened���������iu fact, a  good deal happened all at once, or so  noar it that the effect was the same, and  now I sympathize with Carlyle iuhis  despairing sense of tho inadequacy of  narration, which must proceed by se-  ���������quenccs"**-to-tho-task-*of��������� portraying ^history, where things aro always happening  simultaneously.. It is liko trying to  draw a houso-with ono line.  Mrs. Poytee was standing up to dance  with the bridegroom and was near the  open door.- As tho iuevitablepreliminary  squeaks issued from tho fiddle a man,  in her own phrase, "lunged" through,  tho "door, threw an arm violently around  her waist and���������was knocked down by  tho bridegroom. Mrs. Poytoo was not  tho woman to throw away any cards f uto  in tho courso of thegamo put-iuto hor  hands. Sho flow into the arms of. tho  colonel, who had risen precipitately from  bis seat by tlio fire, crying piteously upon him, her Cousin Charles, for protection. One of tho young Harkinscs, not too  sober himself, alas I recognized in tbe intoxicated intruder his long lost brother  ���������in tho Texas penitentiary ho had been  when hist hoard of���������and, suddenly fired  by that ardor of blood relationship always so easily awakenod by those intruders known as "kin by marriage, "��������� ho  fell upon tho bridegroom with blows.  Tho brother rose and proceeded to take  his own part as:well, and iu seven seconds from his entrance all the mon in  tho placo w'ro in ono wild melee, and  tho women were huddled together as far  j off as they ould got, somo screaming,  j some fainti. g, while Mrs. Harkins and  i Dade, stirre**. by a different spirit, loud-  ! ly.called upon Art and Bill and "you,"  .   .

There was  **m%  inucn nearer tne lncu-uuga-snaoi*- ..__*-  batants and peacemakers than any of the  other women:  "Go back, Miss Charley! For God's  sake, go away!" Harry cried out, his  voice saying a deal moro than his words,  but Charley didn't go back.   She only  dropped on her knees and, screamed  "Harry, Harry!" and Harry let go tha  Harkins ho was holding and sprang toward her and lifted her away from that  doorstop, aud with that they both disappeared.  It is to be supposed that Charley had  not noticed that her father was in quite  as much danger as her lover. To tell the  truth, of courso both sho and Harry had  each whipped up tho sense of tho other's danger for their own dramatic purposes. I have no doubt but the colonel  objected to Charley beiug shot, but he  ouly snatched the pistol from the Harkins boy's hand aud did not feel constrained to abandon the business iu hand  for her sake. _>  By the time she and Harry were seated on the wood pile���������and it was a very  short timo���������peace was restored and the  unprofitable prodigal sent off to a private apartment in chargo of his misguided brother, but Mrs. Peytee's agitation on this occasion, like Charley's  _wn, was of an uncommonly enduring  nature. Sho had too much astuteness to  make a nuisance of hersolf, and as every ono else straightened up and tried  to pass over the late unpleasantness as  the most natural thing in the world,  preparatory to getting away as soon us  possible, she, too, seemed to strive to  appear at ease, bnt* sho kept near the  colonel with an air of dependence upon  his protection and a subtly conveyed  sense of safety iu his shadow which he  found very touching. She showed a discriminating judgment, too, as to where  to turn, that pleased him and raised his  idea of her intelligence. Evidently she  did not make the mistake of considering a little rheumatic stiffness as helpless old age. The colonel conceived the  notion that it would be a pleasant thing  to do the driving himself on tho way  home and to have Mrs. Peytee on the  seat beside him. The reprehensible fact  was that the bit of a tussle had stirred  the colonel's blood and mado him feel  15 years younger.  Harry, too, wus considering the possibilities of the homeward trip. The other young man was a gentle, good natured  yonng fellow. Harry resolved to make  a confidant of him and beg him to surrender the buggy and Charley to her betrothed. The other young man immediately, blushingly aud with the eagerness of embarrassment consented. Ho  had no sooner done so than he was troubled for fear his surrender was unworthy  a properly high spirited man. He knew  he had heard of blood flowing about  smaller matters, but he realized his own  incapacity for living up to some high  ideals and was helpless against his own  human sense and sympathy.  Though quite in the dark about some  trifles whose amazing potential importance we havo seen, Mrs. Peytee confidently and correctly announced the engagement of his daughtor to the colonel  on the way home, and that announcement formed the point of departure for  a conversation  that was exactly to her  JAMES   MOWAT,  CARPENTER and BUILDER.  isr_Ei_so_sr, b. o.

We* beg to inform the public tliat.  the offices of Tins Mixer have been  removed from Josephine Street to the  Jowett Building on Victoria Street.  '.: THE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT.  Once more our legislators have assembled together at Victoria. The  administration of the public funds.  of course, naturally requires their  annual presence, and being there they  think it necessary to make more laws.  Some of these are necessary, many are  not, and a certain number are positively injurious. Now members, of  Parliament are not able to do more in  any given time than any other lot of  men, and it would be a good thing if  uitfiid of trying to make new Acts,  they would devote more of their time  t o correct ing the old ones.  A step in this direction has been  taken by appointing the Chief Justice  as a Commissioner i'or the consolidation and revision of the statutes. He  thus finds time and opportunity- '������������������ tlu'  seclusion of the Bench, to patch up  and put in good shape many of the  terrible hashes that, were passed under  his own administration in the rush  and scramble of a hurried session. No  man is more fitted for. tbe task lluui  Ciiifi* Justice Davik.  The Speech from the Throne faintly  suggests the direction into which the  energies of the House will be directed.  "The importance of raihvay communication throughout the Proyince is  deserving of ' * * earnest consideration and should any practical  proposals be laid before you L have  every confidence that they will meet  with favor." The country will await  with interest the definition of the word  "practical."  The only Acts mentioned by name  .- are : For the Preservation of Forests;  to amend the Public School Act; to  encourage Dairying; for the Incorpor-  ation of Benevolent and Friendly  Societies; and to amend the Assessment Act. The first of these is not  ��������� the least important, and if any measures can be passed to check the annual  disastrous fires there should be no opposition to its passage. We are not  '-_ aware of the proposed amendments to  theli_*Tibhc~l_chooi" Act-To"*"*obtain  special notice in the speech they must  be important. The subject is a dan-  , gerous one to handle just now, with  Manitoba before our eyes and it is  difficult to imagine any vital amendments that will meet with approval on  all tides. For the rest, the Assessment  Amendment Act seems to be the only  one calling for notice, and in the  present ignorance<, of its details it  would be premature- to make any remarks upon it at all.  The whole'tenor of the spe.-h is  quiet and business like and indicate- a  desire on the part of the Government  to work simply and solely for the  ���������country's benefit. During the past  recess ministers have been specially  active in visiting the various districts  and making _ themselves acquainted  with their capabilities and requirements, and this cannot but have a.  direct and satisfactory ell'cct on the  work of the session..  THE PUBLIC ACCOUNTS.  In another column we publish the  annual statement -of Revenue" and  Expenditure of .the Province for the  past year with a parellel column coin-  paring it with that of the previous  year.' The income, has increased by  $78,338 and the Expenditure also by an  amount which had been anticipated  and which was met by last years loan.  To us in Kootenay the statement is  eminently satisfactory, for if West  Kootenay takes her younger sister  East Kootenay by the.hand, the two  together supply a larger income to the  public exchequer than any other district. This however is a way of looking at it'which though comforting is  not quite fair. Other districts may  take hands and- boast of their incomes  in the same way. But the "bare fact  that West Kootenay by herself stands  third on the list is , a fact that will be  welcomed throughout the district.  Victoria City stands first with ������78,649.  Yale comes next with ������77,101 and then  "West Kootenay with $66,162.     This  gives us an important position in the  councils of the Province arid a right to  talk with the best of them. Messrs.  Hume and Kellik should remember  this fact'and take position accordingly.  The back seats in the House are no  longer suitable places for them.  Among the principal items of income  which show an increase are, as might  bo expected, miner's licenses and mining receipts (general). These two items  together' show an increase over last  year of $81,277.  On looking over these, figures one  cannot help speculating. as to what,  next years will be.  ILL ADVISED.  We were extremely sorry lo read an  article which appeared in a recent  edition of the Spokesman Review.  Now that the popular clamor has subsided everyone sees that an unnecessary fuss was made about the  Venezuela busiuess. The great men  of both nations and in fact all who  have their country's welfare at heart  recognize the sin of plunging two  nations into a terrible war on such a  flimsy excuse. Messages of peace and  good will are heard on every side.  Everything is being done to encourage  friendship between the two countries,  wise men forget any ill will that may-  have existed.  But the Spokesman Review a  journal published in a town that has  been lifted from t,he depths of ruin by  British mines, dares to come out and  say that ties of blood and kindred, a.  common ancestry, and a common  language should all be cast aside, and  any seeds of discord that, may have  lodged are to be fostered and encouraged and cultivated until they grow  up into the rank and poisonous plant  of national hatred. This too when the  -ions ol" Spokane and of all that groat  country of which Spokane is the gate  are free to come inlo our favored land  and carry oil' oiu riches upon an  absolutely equal footing with the sons  of our own nation. Well might we  *���������'>>*, "good, we are an alien race, for  some reason or other an object of  scorn and hatred to our cousinscacros*s  the border. A-ery well we will shut  our gates to you. Begone! we will in  future keep our riches to ourselves!"  Apart however from all questions of  filthy lucre, how ignoble a part is it to  iry to keep open a quarrel that had  its origin in nothing and that all the  world is trying to smooth over, How  small and contemptible to encourage a  lend between peoples when reconciliation is in sight.  KOTES.  Mr. Frank C Loring in the Spokesman Review complains of the. size of  mining claims in li. C. and contends  thatUUO feet, would be ample width to  allow. Itis seldom a man complains  of having to much. Mr. Loring  produces the old argument about  having too much land to work, etc.  The. whole thing has been pretty well  threshed out and it is better to let it  he as it. is withoutgoing into its merits.  Mr. Loring further contends that ihe  side lines as well as the centre line  should lie blazed and stakes put in the  centre of each. If. such a regulation  were to be passed, prospectors-'would  have to become surveyors and a  theodolite would become a portion of  every outfit. >l  Every one has been wondering for  what crime Dr. Jameson and his associates would be tried .��������� when they  reached England. The charge of mii--  der could hardly.be sustained, as, if  murder was committed, at all, "it was  done in the Transvaal and not oil  British soil, therefore the English  court would have no jurisdiction.  News has now ''reached us that the  prisoneis will be indicted for an infringement of the Foreign Enlistment  Act, 1870, which makes it a misdemeanor to lit out an' expedition with  the object of making war upon a  friendly power. The punishment for  the crime may be a fine of $25,000 and  two years' imprisoninent with hard  labor. This will-be the first trial under the Act in England and is sure to  cause a sensation.  It is to be hoped that the Monroe  doctrine will stand knocking about, lt  is likely to have a severe shaking before long. If it holds out it is possible  the United States will be at war with  lOnglatid, Germany and France all at  once. Hat her a big order for a country  that has neither army or navy and  whose treasury is empty. It appears  that the German government is now  calling on Venezuela demanding payment of the guarantee fund due. to  German subjects for building the  great Venezuelan Hailway. There is  even talk of two German men-of-war  going to Puerto Cabello. France has a  little .quarrel on with Brazil, but then  as she was allowed by the Monroe  doctrine to conquer' Mexico, the  backers of that terrible document will  no doubt wink at the sister republic's  dealings in Brazil. Only a few days  ago our young friend William of Ger  many was lauded to the. skies because  he had the impudence to bounce England and it must be very hard to have  to switch round so quickly.  Mr. Glass ox War.���������Mr. Chester  Glass recently returned to Spokane  after a visit to. Victoria and favored a  reporter there with an account of his  doings at the Provincial Capital.  Amongst other feats-, which he accomplished (according to this report) he  succeeded, in changing the popular  feeling as to the possible result of a  war between England and the United  States. Previous to his visit, with  that national pride which is highly to  be commended in them, tlie Victorians  believed in the certainty of England's  success. Mr. Glass changed all that.  He explained matters and left his  friends apparently in a state of the  most abject fear. Mr. Glass" ideas (as  statnd in thi- report) are so absolutely j  ridiculous that "it is hard to' believe,  that he ever really gave vent to such  a string of bosh, because those people  who know him are aware that he is  not devoid of sense.- Mr. Glass is a  Canadian who has seen fit to swear  allegiance to Uncle Sam, an action to  which no objection can be taken but it  scarcely entitles him to set himself up  as an ' authority on war. The Victorians may take heart again.  The Hall Mines have undertaken one  very serious responsibility. We do  not know the particular officer to  whom this responsibility attaches, but  every failure to act up to it will be  visited on the heads of all the. officials'1,  from Sir Joseph Trutch in London  down to Dick Day's dog. The company has set up upon its roof-a loud  and not unmusical steam whistle,  which goes off* at certain periods of the  day, and they have thus virtually arrogated to themselves the functions of  a town clock. Hitherto in Nelson  fierce quarrels have arisen as to the  right time owing to there being three  systems in vogue. Each railway had  its time and .Takey Dover had his. AVe  have seen strong men moved to whiskey over the impossibility of reconciling their differences, while a  sympathetic (and correct) sun beamed  down upon their altercations. Now all  is changed. Already folk ha*ve given  np their former gods" and may be seen  any day setting their watches hy  "smelter" time. Iu the future, underdone meat, unpunctual husbands,  failure to carry out appointments, all-  will be laid to the charge of the  smelter. Therefore, it behoves the unseen hand that sets all the daily  machinery of Nelson iu motion, to see  to it that no error creeps into his  timely occupation.  HOTEL   SLOCAN,  IC-fVS-L-O.
