PARLIAMENT.  - In answer to questions * the Premier  ���������stated that an offer was made in -Victoria  *to subscribe the provincial loau iu  London. The rate offered was 92_ .les %  of one per cent, for brokerage and }d por  cent, for bank of issue.  With regard to his statements that B.  C. bonds were being offered in Loudou,  . at a lower price than the current market  rate, Mr. Turner-said "I was informed,  a short time before the issue of the B. C.  loan, that parties were endeavoring to  depreciate the credit of the Province by  bearing the stock, aud that offers were  actually made of the stock' at a decline  from previous rates.  In reply to a question, the Attorney-  General stated that "All couit fund3  appropriated by J. C. Prevost have been  replaced by.the government."  Mr. Hume asked for a return of Crown  Grants issued in Kootenay up to Dec. 31,  1895, and, How many Crown granted  claims that have paid taxes thereon, the  amount so paid, and name of owners and  amount whenjaxes not paid?  The Minister of Mines, in answer to a  question, said that, five persons had  taken advantage ot the permission to pay  ������100 instead of doing assessment work.  S500 had been paid of which 3-0'J came  from Kootenay.  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  NAKUSP.  [From ouro-ivn Correspondent.]  Nakusp, Feb. 13.���������Ovvinar to the very  high wind on SiUuul.-iy night and Sunday, the s.s. N-ikusp.ii.-id a rough time  of it. She had the ice breaking scow  ahead of her, which inl.r_-.es with  hoi- steering to a great extent. At the  liu.-id of the lake she was compelled to  run the scow ashore. She was then  unable to get off, and the wind and  waves forced hoi' broadside ont he bench  lhe waves washing her'low or deck, At  one time it was thought she would be  completely wrecked, but fortunately  .she escaped with a severe shaking up  and a quantity of broken glass. She  returned to Nakusp on Monday for  repairs, which look until Wednesday  morning, when sho made her regular  trip from here to the head of the lake  with a load of ore.  The wharf is once more clear of ore,  the last being taken up to Arrowhead  this  morning.  A heavy fall of snow on Wednesday  morning turned into rain in the afternoon, it is now thawing fast.  Mr. F. Bourne, of Bourne Bros.,  made a (lying trip to New Denver,  Sandon and Three Forks last week, he  returned ou Monday morning.  It is reported today that the engine  and snowplough are somewhere on the  way between Kiisnbery and here.  Yesterdays suow having blocked the  road in places.  Mr. McNeil of the Madden House  gave a very successful dance on Tuesday evening, nearly every one in town  being there, the way in which the  dancing" was kept up, showed the way  in which they enjoyed themselves.  The s.s. Nakusp made a special trip  from Arrowhead on Wednesday evening, bringing in the delayed mail, and  a number of passengers, who had been  waiting o.t Kevelstoke since Monday  owing to the boat being laid up for  repairs' She returned this morning  with a full load of ore.  Nakusp, Feb. 17.���������Mr. Bulger from  Portland, Ore., came in on Saturdays  boat with seven ship carpenters, and  (his morning commenced work on the  new boat for the C & K. S. N. Co. He  has- sixteen men at work now, and  intends pushing the work through, to  have her finished by May 1.  There has been no ore in lately,  owing no doubt to the state of the  road between here and Three Forks.  This snow  is disappearing from the  side hills, under the influence of the  bright sunny weather we are having.  There wns a surprise party at the  Miulden House on Friday' evening  which passed off pleasantly for all  present.  The s.s. Nakusp came down from  Arrowhead wil h a load ot freight and  a. scow load of timber tor the new boat.  Shi returned early this morning.  C. E. Peri'y C.E.,  and staff came up  on Saturday en route for Sioean lake,  the supposition is tha*. he is looking out  a right of way for tlie railway from  the foot of Slocan lake co connect with  the C. it K. at Slocau Crossing.  NKW   DKXV_.ll.  On ihe Enti'i'pri.c and Slocan Queen,  claims recently bonded to J. A. Finch,  tlie vein is being opened up by two  tunnels, one in each claim. These  tunnels are in about 120 feet and are  designed to cut the vein, at a depth of  -Oil feet. They are beingdriven along-  side__the__ore^body���������which-shows-at-  nearly the whole distance.' About 12  men are employed.  MIDWAY.  Miessrs. Sheeluin and Gwatkins have  discovered auother ledge on the Stem-  winder.  The shaft on the Morning Star at  Fail view is down " 110 feet-with the ore  gradually improving as "depth is gained.  On the Silver King in the Skylark  Catn'p four distinct, veins have beeu  found. -They are all heavily capped with  iron, through which crosscuts have been  made. A shaft is beiug sunk on one of  these veins iu which galena ore is showing up.  Last spring Mr. Denzler bonded his  half share in the Stemwinder to Messrs.  Farrell aud'Midgeou ot Biute for $10,000.'  The final payment of some S9.IJU0 has  been "made to Mr. Denzler and the mine  has passed into the hands of the Butte  capitalists who bought the other half  about a year ago for 83,500.  TKA.L   CKEEK.  Two .shifts are now.working on the  Nickle Plate.  The sale in Spokane of 1000 Josie  shares at 30 cents is reported.  There are four weekly -papers in  Rossland and it is rumored that a  daily is to be started immediately.  - J. B. McArthur leaves p-esently for  Toronto, and is taking a fine collection  of samples of ore with him to be  displayed in the Board of Trade rooms  there.  The Tramway Company is;1building  a ferryboat at Trail. It will be 21x100  feet aud will be worked on a cable  supported on two lofty piers 125 feet  high.- The cable will have a span of  lSOOfeet.  What is known as the Champion  Bear camp is likely to be heard from  this season. This camp is on this creeks  of that name on the east side* of the  Columbia just above Trail. On the'  Black Hawk claims there is a 25 foot  shaft in ore from the grass roots.  Mr. Uobert Flormann,. who was  recently jn Xelson, has purchased the'  Lake Vi.*w, .Tee Dandv and Bed  Jacket claims for $10,000. The property is ���������'ituuti'd on Bed Top Mountain  a few miles east of Rosslaud. The ore  fro n these claims assays, from IOj to  340 ounces ia silver.  At Spokane Judge McBride found  for' the plaintiff in the suit of  C. P. Oudin V. Grossman. The  plaintiff claimed that he had been induced to pay $1000 for- a share in tbe  Monitor Claim on the strength of ah  assay fsorn a salted sample. Judgment was entered for the plaintiff for  $1000 with interest and costs.  TBOUT    LAKE.  William Hoar is taking in a party of  men to work on the Abbott group.  Messrs. Ferguson, Walker nnd Vickers  are putting up a store at the Forks.  The Great. Northern has a quantity of  ore stacked. Its ledge appears to improve as the work advances.  At the Silver Cup eight horses are  drawing out ore over the rawhide trail  which is just completed. About 100 tons  are on the dump.  THE   ALIENATION    OF  LANDS.  PUBLIC  A Bill has been introduced by the  Government for the purpose of raising  funds for educational "purposes by the  sale of public lands. The preamble  recites a most apparent fact, that the  cost of our educational system has be?  come a heavy burden on, the revenue of  the Province. It is not our iutentioii  uow to go into that question but to mnke  a few remarks on the method proposed  to be adopted to relieve this burden in  the taxpayer. ��������� !  Iu spite of the opposition which tbe  the name of Henry George always raises,  the fundamental principle of his theories  is recognized as axiomatic. The land must  bear the cost of everything, and the  government proposes now to take power  to sell half a million acres annually to'  provide funds for the Educational  department. Land warrants are to b_'  issued entitling the bearer to 160 acres of  land. These warrants are to be of three'  classes. "A" warrants are for pastoral  lands, "B" warrants for agricultural,  land, aud ' 'C" warrants for timber lands,  These warrants are to be sold by public,  auction at a minimum price of $1 per  acre for "A" warrants; 82.50 for "B".  warrants aud $5 for "C" warrants.  The Bill further proceeds to lay  dowu regulations for the terms of  payment and for the surveys etc of  the lands.'  We firmly apptove of the main object of the Bill, namely making the  land pay for the cost of education, but  we think that the bill to secure this  desirable result, requires some remodelling before it becomes part of  tiie law of the laud. The present, land  laws of the province have been framed with the view of making' it impossible for speculator's to take'upaud  hold large areas of land to the public  detriment. This policy was only decided on after a very great deal of,  mischief had been done and when it  was very evident that if tbe small  tanners and settlers were to have a  chance, the actions .of the land  speculator must be at once stopped, The present bill, seems to offer  an opportunity for a continuation of  the very practices which the province,  by its land laws, has most emphatically stopped. There is nothing in the  bill to prevent any one man occupying as many 100 acres' lots as he  chooses without making any improvements at all.  The,omission of regulations to obviate  this danger is no doubt a temporary oversight and they cau easily be added. They  should, iimongst other things, stringently  require the carrying out of improvements.  lu formulating land laws at the present  dtiy-tbere- are ���������three-f undamental-priu���������  ciples to be bo rue in mind. 1. The folly  ot throwing away the public estate so  that the people lose the ''unearned  liicrement." 2. The necessity of always  haviug enough laud for the small farmer  at a reasonable price. 3. The classification of the land for different purposes and  its division into lots of suitable size for  those purposes. ���������*  PROVINCIAL. MINING LECTURES"  Ore .Bodies und Veins.  Mr. Carlyle, the uew Provincial Mineralogist, in oue of his lectures pointed out  how in the last .few years discoveries of  ore bodies under hitherto unprecedented  circumstances had brought about chauged  ideas on mining. By means of u diagram  he showed how the ore iu the celebrated  Cripple Creek mines, Colorado,, were  found iu reticulated veins iu lava or basalt, iind said this was of particular iuterest to British Columbia as such bodies  might, perhaps, be fouud under similar  conditions. Touching on the theory of  veins, he explained tliat all ore,'though  some otit was apparently dry, * contained  a ertain perceutage of moisture. At  great depths this moisture, iu the form of  steam,-was able to hold the minerals iu  solution, and these heated waters, rising  in fissures, cooled aud crystallised. He  instanced a case of chalcedony and lime,  containing gold and mercury, being deposited at the present day by hot,springs  near the Comstock mines.  The lecturer then proceeded to explaiu  how, as a general rule, iron,ore was deposited iu beds, and gave as an instance  the Radnor Forges, Quebec, where since  the last century iron ore had been obtained by dredging the bottom of a lake.  The irou was made jnto as fine a grade of  charcoal iron as there was on the continent. An instance of .bedded veins of  gold ore was seeu in the wonderful mines  of the Rand in the Transvaal, where the  gold was found in a conglomerate^ pudding stone, originally in horizontal layers,  but crushed by pressure so they now  staDd on end. Examinations by borings  proved that at a depth of 1,200 feet these  beds flattened out as they had been originally laid down. .Silver ore had been  found in beds in Utah, where a happy  chance that led to the assaying of the  sandstone found that it ran 30 ounces in  silver to the ton. The lecturer gave au  explanation of the formation of coal beds;  how the dense vegetation Of prehistoric  ���������jge_ had been laid down, the ground had  subsided, aud mud deposited on top of  organic matter.  MUKDEROUS ASSAULT.  AN   EDITOR  ATTACKS MR. MARPOLE.  Cuts  Hi.   Head   Open   With   a  Ruler  And  Uses the Coward's Weapon.  A paragraph appeared in the Tribune  last week refening to the officials and  management of the C.P.R. It stated  amongst other things that bad feeliugs  existed between the traffic aud executive  departments. The whole story was  purely fictitious and simply had not a  word of truth in it. The gentlemen  alluded to, who are all very good friends,  naturally felt annoyed at these scandals  being circulated.  This mornjug Messrs. Marpole, Geo.  McL. Brown and Ducliesnay, who  happened to be iu town, called on the  Editor of the Tribune with reference to  the offending ' paragraph; They were  sitting quietly stating their case when  Mr. Houston seized a large and heavy  ruler ; which was lying on his table and  rising from his seat dealt Mr. Marpole a  fearful blow on the head, laying it open  to the skull. Mr. Marpole at once closed  with his assailant but was hampered by  his overcoat. Mr. Houston then aimed a  second blow at Mr. Marpole, but by this  tinieMessis. Brown and Duchesuay were  upon him. Mr. Brown caught his wrist  and broke the weight of the blow whieh,  however, inflicted a nasty wound just  above Mr. Marpole's eye. Findiug him  self baffled, in his blind furyMr. Houston  seized Mr. Marpole by the throat and also  managed to get his teeth into his hand  and nearly chewed off the end of his finger. In this predicament, with bis right  hand firmly held by his assailant's teeth  Mr. Marpole seized the scissors as the  only means of defending himself. These  however were taken from him, and  Houston was dragged off.    -  All the C.P.R. men were more or less  wounded, Mr. Marpole, so badly that he  had to go at once to a surgeon who put  four stitches into his head and dressed  his wounded finger. Mr. Duchesnay also  had a severe out in his hand and Mr.  Brown a bruise. The three were simply  covered with blood. 0"  THE CASE IN   COURT.  During the morning a summons was  issued and the assault case came  up before Captain Fitzstubbs, S.  M., at 2 o'clock this afternoon. To  the charge Editor Houston pleaded not  guilty. Mr. Marpole was then called and  proceeded to. give an outline of the  occurrence.  After some unimportant details witness proceeded to say that he told Mr.  Houston that the visit was over an article  tliat had appeared in the Tribune. Witness asked him who the informant was,  Houston began to tell about some freight  that Lad been held, up on the mainline,  Witness told him that whoever had  given  the information   lied.     Houston  said if you came here for a row  get out of my, office. .Witness said he did  not come for a row. Houston said that  no C. P. R. bluffs went. Replied that  he was talking nonsense and that whoever wrote the article was a liai. Hous  ton said "I wrote the article." What  occurred then witness did not clearly  remember as he was then struck  with a ruler. Witness threw a  dictionary at Houston, some blows passed and they clinched.  , Iii cross examination an attempt was  made to show that Mr. Marpole had  threatened to make Houston retract  before going to the office. This Mr. Marpole denied strongly. During the cross-  examination Mr. Marpole was asked if he  did not think he was even.  "No I am uot."  "You can have all you want" sneered  Houston.  "That's all right."  "Where you waut and how you want."  ICalledto order.]  Mr. G. McL. Brown was then  called. Went to the office with Mr.  Marpole as to an article which appeared  in the Tribune of tbe 15th. His story  was in outline the same as that of the  preceding witness.  ���������The case is proceeding -as we go to  press. '  CANADIAN LOYALTY.  LOCAL   NEWS.  NEWS OF  THE   WORLD.  ���������- Nowhere in the world has loyalty to  the British Crown been more marked  than in Canada. In the Legislatureof  New Brunswick the speech from the  throne announced that ''no part of the  Empire would moreheartilyand loyally  maintain her connection to the motherland." In the Legislature of Ontario,"  the premier Sir Oliver Mowat moved a  resolution declaring the attachment of  the province to the Empire. It was  seconded by Mr. Marter leader of the  Opposition and it was carried by  acclamation. The members of the  House then rose to their feet and sang  God Save the Queen. Such overriding  of the rules has never occurred before.  A resolution expressing sympathy  with Her Majesty and Princes-  Beatrice was also carried.  .

The big fight between Maber and  Fitzsimmons was fixed to come off yesterday, but' up to the time- of our going  to press no news of it had beeu received.  Messrs. Neelands and . Gerard have  received $1,000 being the amount of the  second payment of the bond on their  claim, the Princess. The work of driving  a tunnel in on to the ledge is being  rapidly pushed ahead.  The last of the new fittings for the Hall  Mines tramway arrived from San Francisco on Thursday night. The work of  repairing the damage caused by the  defective sheaves is being rapidly pushed  on and it is hoped that everything will be  iu working order during the coming  week. The smelter will not start up  until there is a Btock _i' ore on Hand.  Mr. T. Corson returned to Nelson on  Thursday bringing in Mrs. Corson and  child, air. Corson reports lhat the  Hon. D. W. Higgins Speaker ofthe.  Legislative Assembly is now pronounced by his doctors to be out of  danger, but that it is improbable that  he will be able to take his seat in tIn-  House at all during the present  session.  The latest addition to t he ranks of  Nelson's business men is Mr. A. C.  Buchanan, late of Vernon, B.C. After  a careful survey of thc field Mr.  Buchanan decided to locate in Nelson  and the Ideal Grocery Store with a  fine line of goods is the result. The  proprietor stood high in business  circles in Vernon and will no doubt.  achieve added success in his latest"  venture. .  The Kaslo Claim has a long screed  upon.the difficulty of getting a small  parcel out of the customs. It is really a  simple matter as the express company  has the privilege of passing all parcels  under the value of 810, and does so at its  discretion. The customs authorities  throughout the district are most courteous  and obliging and frequently put themselves to great inconvenience to  expedite the passage of goods.  Mr.- Marpole informed us that Mr.  Perry had gone to New Denver and will  make a survey and estimate of the cost of  constructing the Slocan River line from  Rosebery on the Nakusp & Slocan to tlie  Blocan crossing on the Columbia &  Kootenay. Mr. Marpole further said  that the authortiesof the C. P. Ii. recognized the necessity of buildiug this line  and that it would probably be constructed this year. A good deal depends on  Mr. Perry's report.  Nelson has been full of visitors during the past week. Amongst others  Mr. Geo. McL; Brown, district passenger agent of the C.P.R. Mr. Gray,  engineer of the Kaslo Slocan railway  who stayed a day in town on his way  back from Ottawa. Messrs. Marpole  and Duchesnay came in last night accompanied by Mr. Geo. Desbarrets the  Dominion Government engineer who  has been sent out to report on the  differences between the C. P. li. and  the K. &..S. Railroad at Sandon. The  party will leave for Kaslo this afternoon.  CORRESPONDENCE.  Nelson Lumber Trade.  To The Editor of The Miner.  Sib,--I noticed a paragraph in lasl  Saturday's - issue^of^the- Tribune-taking  exception to your remarks on the lumber  busiuess here which struck me as being  slightly misleading, to say the least, not  only to the townspeople but also to those  on the outside who may read the paper.  At the present time there is scarcely  enough lumber in the yards here to build  a'deceut sized dog's kennel and from  inquires made among those who are  supposed to be doing the business it  appears that none will be forthcoming  until actually' ordered. In saying that  200.000 feet of fair marketable building  lumber could be sold at once, I am well  within the mark and" I believ-* tlmt at no  time in the history of Nelsou has there  been,such a demand for that, article so  early in the year. As to the statement  that the lumber would be forthcoming if  the cash were in'sight, one might suppose that it is ns simple a matter to turn  out a thousand feet of dry lumber as it is  to run off a thousand "handbills or that  we were living in a "boom" town suffering  from a shortage of cash aud a superabundance of bad whiskey. 1 think it will  puzzle the editor of the Tribune or anyone else to name auy. carpenter who has  put up buildings by contract and haH  not paid for his material, although there  may have been some small places put up  by speculators which were not all paid  for and for which the. merchant is  distinctly to be blamed. I don't think  anyone wishes to purchase goods of, any-  kind on the outside if they can avoid it  but' it is very.irritating to a business man  to be constantly met with the remark  when he, happens to want any ordinary  article -'Oh! we are very sorry we have'nt  got it but we will send and get it for you'  aud that not only applies to the lumber  trade but to some other businesses in  Nelson. Lumber seasoned as it should  be for budding purposes cannot be made  in a day and I think that most people-  will admit that it is a great want of  commercial foresight iu those responsible  for that trade that the slack times which  have now happily disappeared -hoiild  not have been utilised for stocking their  yards and giving, the public a chance of  erecting wooden buildings capable of  keeping out wind and water.

"But where isshe from?" Almea asked.
"We don't want'.women comin' in here
among our folks without we know where
they are from."
"She came from Chicago."
"What, and you are sure she ain't an
anarchist? Look here, colonel, you ought
to have gone a little slow in this matter.
She might hoist ths red flag at the head of
your paper aud theu where would the
country be?''
"No danger of that," the editor laughed,
and off he walked, leaving old Aiines to
stand and wonder whether or not he should
call on the woman and get a few points
from her. He decided that he would, and
upstairs he went. He looked in at the
parlor door and saw the young woman sitting ou the sofa with a book in her hand.
"Ahem, excuse me; but may I come in a,
moment?"
"Yes," the woman answered, putting
aside the book. The old man entered,
took a chair, moved it about and finally
settled down near her.
"Putty.hot," he ventured to remark.
"Yes, rather."
"Hotter than it was yistidy, I believe,"
he observed.
"Yes, or day before yesterday, either,"
���he replied.
"I gad, I reckon you are right."
She slowly turned her head aud looking
straight at him said :

CHAPTER I.
What was called a union revival was io
progress at the principal meeting house in
Broomfield, an old and gullied village in
tha southwestern part of Missouri, aud
the exliorters, .vigorous advocates of a
change of heart and purpose, were warm
iu their work .when the slight flutter of a
couuter excitement arose amid the congregation. Old Bill Aiines, strong among
the exhorters, and who long had enjoyed
the name of "Wheel Horse," looked to-
witrd the door and saw a strange young
Woman slowly and with long strides walking dowu the aisle. She was exceedingly
tall and with a complexion that seemed to
darken its she drew near, but she was not
ungraceful and neither was her face waut-
iug in attractiveness. Her tailor-made
gown was a mark of ultra fashion in this
out-of-the-way place; aud her air, her
swing of motion bespoke tbe forced independence of city life. She paid not. the
slightest, heed to tbe gazes bent upon lier,
but with easy freedom took a seat and
modestly turned her eyes toward the altar
where the mourners in split and shivered
accents were pitiably begging-that the old
Adam born within them might be cast out
into utter darkness. And now tbe whisper went round: "Who is- she and where
did she come from aud what is she doing
here?" Some of the children climbed upon the benches to stare at her, and old Bill
Aiines, always a bold man, looked straight
at "her and shouted his exhortation as
though he would have her believe that she
had arrived - just in time to escape the
awful fury, to come. But the woman sat
there iwi'thft least disturbed; and when
the services were brought'" to a close she
got up without looking about her and
. walked straightway to the tavern, a short
distance down the street. It appeared
that she' had already engaged a room, for
she walked upstairs without halting, and
a few moments later a boy came down
with a note in his hand. Bill Aiines was
standing near the door of the hallway, and
as the boy came down the old man called
to him and told him to stop a moment.
'.'Boy, what have you got there?" the old
fellow, asked.
"A note, or something of the sort," he
answered.
"What are you going to do with it?"
"She told me to take it to the editor of
the Sentinel."
"Well, let me see it." The boy hesitated. "Let me see it, I tell you. Ain't I the
mayor of this town, you young rascal, and
ain't it my business to know it if' any underhand business goes on here? Give me
that thing."
The idlers who stood about applauded:
the mayor and the boy banded him the'
note. "Here, Alf;" he said, speaking to a
young fellow, "read this here thing.   Left
my buckskin at home and ain't got noth-        "AHEM! excuse ME; MAT I come in*?
lug to rub my glasses with. -Read  if    tive part m our revivals.   But we hain't
There was a titter among the <��_Kere.    done much  this time and the meetm'
closed to-day."
��� "I thought you were the man, and I am.
therefore a little surprised to hear you say
'I gad' after hearing you so fervently urge
people to turn'from frivolous ways."
Old Aiines puffed and fanned himself
.with his straw hat. The woman took up
.her book and looked at it. "Miss, I knock
under. You are right. ' But I don't mean
���no harm by usin'such words, and I want
,to say they are the strongest I ever use.
.Bleeged to you for callin' my attention to
'eni.o But I have. come to see you to ask
.you a few questions, and I hope you won't
xhiuk them out of place, or anything of
'that sort, for you see country people pride
.themselves on.bein' more respectable than
most any otbeir^folkg are, and the truth is
they have to he migbty^rticular and all
that sort of thing, which I hope you will
'understand without any trouble, and the
questions I .want to ask you are simply
these here: How did you happen to .come
;here and-
"How did you happen to come here ?"
.the woman broke in, raising her. eyes from
[the book.and midly fixing them upon the
old man. And she appeared to be making
.a study of him, his squint eyes, his purple
cheeks, bushyeye-brows, fat nose; and she
noticed'that the bosom of his cotton shirt
was unbuttoned at the top, revealing the
grayish hairs on his chest. "But before
you answer," she added, still looking at
him, takiug, it seemed, au enjoyable
measurement .of his discomfiture, "let me
ask'you it you would mind buttoning your
shirt.'*
"I gad, miss," the old man puffed, "you
are somethin' of a Ta: U*r, I reckon. I've
lived here all my life and have been mayor
here for ten year and have worn niy shirt
tai-.way every spell"of hot weather, and
you are the first.one to tell me to button
it; but dinged���excuse the expression, for
it's the strongest I use���I say dinged if I
don't do it. Now, miss, the shirt's buttoned, so go, ahead with your rat killin',
as-the feller said."- ���
"I have no Tat killing to go on with.   I
merely asked you how you happened to
come .here."
"Miss, I tell you that I'm' the mayor of

The Idlers about the door'of the j Would'you mind tellin' me your name?"
women folks and you needn't laugh at me
any more than you can help, even if there's
a bug on you, but what 1 want, to get at
and I'm going to get at it mighty sudden
is this here: Before we can allow you to
associate with us we must know somethin'
about you, and it is as little as you can do
to tell us what we want to know."
"You have asked me for my confidence,"
she said, looking at' him with demure
mockery, "the precious i-nnfidence of au
unprotected woman, and oh, how willingly would I give it you but for the fact that
I have not known you long enough. But
I confess that you have invited my confidence by seeking to unbosom yourself."
She looked at the old man's shirt aud lie
puffed aud buttoned it.
"Miss, I'll be slathered���now that is
really the strongest expression I use���if
you don't sorter git away with me. But
won't you tell me somethin' about yourself?"
"Why, yes, I will give you my tenderest
confidences."
"Oh, now, here, don't chaw me. I am
the mayor of this town, I tell you, and if
you are goin' to run a paper here you had
better keep in with me. The city council
takes ten copies and I could have them cut
off at any time."
"UOT, WHAT MAVB TOU GOT THERE?"
"What are you fellers gig*lin'.at* Think
I can't read? Hah? Is that what you
tbink? Why, I gad���Lord forgive me for
the expression���I read the Declaration of
Independence at a muster before either of
you was born. What does that thing say,
AH?"
_ Alf spelled and spluttered for a moment
er two and then read the following:.
"Mr DB-.R Sih: Meet me at once in the parlor at tbe hotel od important .unities.. FU>'
���P-Ctf.lljr, Pouvr Loir."
The old man took the note, looked at it,
turned it over, looked at. it again, folded it
aud returned it to the boy. "I don't understand it, but I reckon, its's all right," he
said, "Take it to him, and say, you,
watch him when he reads it, and come
back here and tell me how be looked."
It did not appear that the boy had more
than reached the shanty where the pa^er
was printed wht-d they* saw the editor
coming hastily toward the hotel. To him
the prospect of an- important, business
conference no doubt produced a strange
sensation. Year after year he had "scrapped" for a living in that village, printing
funeral tickets', horse bills, and through
his sheet urging his party to organize and
overthrow the political enemy of his
country.
CHAPTER I���Continued.
She raised her hands as if imploring him
not to cut them off, and he, looking down
at his shirt to see if it were buttoned,
showed his yellow teeth, and continued;
"Yes, you better keep ��� in with me. Man
tried to run a paper here once without
keepin' in with me,, and what do you
reckon became of him?"
"Went to the legislature, I suppose."
"Hah! Who told you? Dinged if he
didn't go there, but he left his paper dead
as a padlock."  .
"I haven't anything to hide," she said
"and I don't mind telling you tbat, having
grown very tired of city life, I.have come
here to rest awhile, but not baLog able to
rest without work I have decided to lease
this little paper and play with it."
"Talk like a woman in a show, dinged
if you don't. Not being able to rest without work is a new one on me; but we will
let that pass."
"Just as well, I suppose. Yes, it is my
purpose to live here a year, and then if I
like the place well enough I may remain
permanently."
"Ah, hah," said the old fellow, "that is
to say, you mought git married and settle
down here. Putty good plan, I reckon,
for I hear 'em say that marriage is about
played out in the cities. I have seed better lookin' women than you air, but then,
I reckon, you mought do on a pinch, and
you never can tell jest how soon a pinch
is goin' to take place. My old woman has
been dead about- two year and I 'lowed
after while that I mought pick up a chunk
of a wife, may do so this fall if my corn
down here on the creek turns out well."
"Your shirt collar is unbuttoned again,"
she said.
"Blast me if I don't go to the blacksmith shop and git me a horseshoe nail
jest to accomodate you. So you are goin'
to run -the newspaper. Never hearn of a
woman runnin' a paper, but I have hearn
of 'em ridin' straddle and I don't see why
a newspaper shouldn't come next."
"By the way," she said, "I should like to
find some pleasant place to board. I don't-
care to stay at this'hotel."
"You nre talkin' sense, now, miss. Let
nre see; I live about a quarter of a mile
from liore-���just an easy walk���and if you
don'i mind you -may board there. My
daughter Nell lives with me, and you'd
like her. Oh, she cats more books than a
sheen do st-viw. always achawin' 'em, and
you'd ;. it along well together. She's ctoo
���-mart I,.:- this town,and you and her could
trot together right well. Well, I'll send
her over to see you.' I reckon you are all
right, lea-twise you understand takin'
cure nf yourself. Good day."
���_��� She arose and as he reached the door
she called him.
11 What is it, miss!'"
"Nothing, only I hope that you will not
forget to go by the blacksmith shop."
The old man puffed and tramped heavily
down the stairs, and at the bottom be

.but th. mayor, showing a disposition to
block hi. path, asked him to wait a moment. Tne editor gave him. a look of
strong - reproof. "I have"- no - time for

The crowd stood about the door, waiting
for him to come dowu, and 'when he did
those who were best acquainted with his
sad and car*worn countenance agreed
that he looked years younger. Now what
could it all mean? The mystery waa
deepened.
"Jest hold ou a minute," old Aiines called after him. The editor faced about anc
aaid: "Well, what do you want?"
" "We want to know something that
we've got a right to know," Aimea replied. "There's something goin' on hen*,
and we want to know what it is. You
never saw tbat woman before, aud why
should you have important business with
her* We don't know but she's some female anarchist come here to blow up these

"Ah, hah, I reckon it was all right to
ricollect the old lady and all that sort of
thing, but from what I can gather from
the papers Lopp is a sort of anarchist
name, ain't it?"
" "I have never known an anarchist of
that name." the young woman answered,
smiling.
"They may be, miss, but I don't like the
name any too well, but we'll let that pass,
as the feller said when he seed the wild
cat.*' . He was silent long enough to unbutton tbe top-button of his shirt and then
he went on: "We understand that you
have leased the paper here, and we'd like
to know why, for when a paper is leased
there is generally some sore of ax to be

"She can take care of herself, and if she
can't; I wad, I can take care of her or come
mighty blame nigh it; but I reckon tha.
expression is a little too strong for a man
tlmt thinks as much of a revival as I do,
and I ask- the.Lord to excuse me."
"But hold on and tell us somethin' about
her," Alf insisted.
"1 don't know a blessed thing about' her
except that she's all right, and that's all
anybody need to know."
. Shortly afterward a young woman called
at the hotel, introduced herself to tho
stranger and said that following "the advice of her father she had come to ask Miss
Lopp to board' with her. "'We hnve i.
great, big old-fashioned house," she said,
and you may have all the room you want,
so don't say you won't. Will you please'
not say you won't?"
" The visitor had taken a seat on the piano
stool and not ungracefully was slowly
turning herself half round and then back.
She was a comely girl and it was evident
that she was the belle of the neighborhood;
and it was also evident that shecared nothing for this distinction, that she had
studied and read herself beyond any companionship that the village might offer,
and that simply to be admired had long
since grown tiresome to her. Mis3 Lopp

dark eyes half humorously pleading, the

Southern  are presenting a petition for a private'  bil' for the extension of the'r ch.-u'U*!'.  Under the original charter Um eiislurn  section ofthe line was to .���������(��������� .inislu'd  on Dec. 31 1896, t.he central section  on Dec. 31 1S97 and Lhe western section  on Dec. 31 1898. The excuse offered  for the extension isihni owinp to t he  bad financial euudilinii, 'luring 1 lipase two years, of Canadian aud American rails, Lhey have been unable tu  raise the -capital required. Tln>y  believe now "that hutrw _m-i.*._iu.  conditions are in sight, and that, as the  capabilities of the Kooti-nay district,  and i*s enormous mineral wealth are  now more widely known" thoy think  the scheme- will he more favorably  regarded by capitalists.  The have all but f.hive years to -iui.-  pliiU- their line. How much more cun  they possibly want. Here loday are  three smelters that will 'iik. theii  coke. The War l.agle \>- op1" -ire  vacillating in the' choice of a -.it.e f 1  th'* fourth. If the B 0. Southern cun-  1100 be built within the next three  years, there will hardly be nny necessity for it at all. By that time new  channels will have been opened up  and our trade will bo conducted by  them���������or there will not be any trade at  all. One or the other must happen.  In either case there will be less excuse  for building the B. C. Southern than  there is today. The policy of waiting  may be advantageous,hut it is an open  secret that the C.P.R. officials at.  Montreal are "kicking themselves"'  because lhey did not heed the advice  of their local agents, and left, this held  until it is teeming with rivals.  little literary brandy with th<> portion  of journalistic pabulum which we  furnish at Ottawa until Kootenay's  wants rise at every turn before the  distressed statesmen like the ghost of  his victim before a murderer. Then-  perhiips the government will recognize  that. Kootenay deserves some little  attention in return for the thousands  of dollars which she is pouring into the  Dominion Exchequer. Since Nelson  liee-nino a port over $1.10,000 have been  paid liy Kootenay in customs duties.  This if. just a drop of the aforesaid  brandy. Now the things required are  not ni'iny and are easily granted. The  two wants to which we wish to call  nt lent ion now are Lhe establishment of  a County Court .'Judge in the district  and the building of a Customs House  and Post Office in Nelson.  The reasons and urgent necessity for  b.aving a resident judge amongst us  have been so often set out. and are so  apparent that we shall not go over  them again. Mit. Mara is perfectly  cognisant of them aud quite capable of  giving them their full force from his  seat in the house, if he chooses to  do so.  The present customs house is the  building in which the aforesaid $130,-  iX)0 w;t,- coliecLed. It is a. little apartment with not room enough for more  than four persons at once in the public  part thereof and is altogether tot all;y  inadequate for its purpose. The pos^  office is part of a store in the very  centre of ��������� h������ closest built part of the  ���������own. it iii built of wood, as are all  : he buildings by which it is surrounded.  In the ���������.���������vent of lire the damage and  inconveniene: to Lhe community from  the destruction of its correspondence,  would be very large. In both departments the public has a right to demand  belter.accommodation.  to demand such legislation. Prior to  1880 there had been a similar law on  the statute book, but it had been repealed, owing to the difficulty of ^  enforcing il. There is no doubt that  an ideal Insolvency Law would he a  boon to the country. But like Mr.  Kellie's attempt 10 frame a bill for the  payment, of wages in cash it seems  impossible to draught one. There are  Insolvency Bills and Bankruptcy Acts  all over the British dominions, and  they are about as useful for their  purposes as a paper hoop is to stop the  clown, in fact it is a favorite and profitable pastime of t he legal fraternity  to drive coaches and horses through  Ihem. Meanwhile the unfortunate  man is not more fortunate and the  villain triumphs inightly.  OYSTERS!Levi Strauss'  Overalls.  IN ALL  STYLES  AT T.

The lectures now being given on the  Coast by the Provincial mineralogist  and other gentlemen are said to be  attracting considerable attention and  are no doubt extremely interesting.  To nearly every man in Kootenay the  subject is one of the greatest' moment,  and we have no doubt that if these  lectures were delivered here thoy  would be extremely well, attended.'  That is "to say they would be if any of  our towns  had halls large enough to  ��������� hold    the    audiences     which   would  c*  assemble.     As  it is, no such buildings  ��������� exist.   This alone is a first class excuse  ���������for-not-having-these-lectures-delivered  in this or some other mining district.  We take it- however that as inhabitants of British . Columbia, we in  Kootenay as well as our fellow miners  in other parts of the Province have a  right to our share in the words of  wisdom which fall from the lecturers  lips. We would therefore suggest 1 Is at,  these lectures should be primed and  copies furnished to every paper in the  Province, I hat they might pi-i 111 them  or so  much   of   them  as th-*j- choose.  The diagtams present no difficulty,  as "cuts" of these could easily be made  ut a small Dost and furnished with 1 lie  lectures. By this menus not only  would the people directly engaged in  mining have an opportunity <>f benefitting by the lectures, but those who  are able Lo hear them would be able to  grasp and keep the ideas with more  certainty than they could by simply  listening in a crowded loom.  KOOTENAYS WANTS."  There are certain things that Kootenay wants. They have been mentioned  before often, so often that an apology  is almost necessary for "alluding to  them agaim. The excuse must be that  our, legislators absolutely take no  notice whatever nf any statement of  wants however clearly put until it is  repeated over and over again so that  it is impossible to avoid it. Then in  sheer     desperation     the    ponderous  machinery   of the government  takes      An.

The editor ofthe Golden Era speaking of the 'wonderful ore of the North  Star mine in East Kootenay which is  said to contain wire silver, says that  he is at a loss to understand" what  silver ore that phrase is intended to  represent. "Presumably it-is native  silver in filiform or acicular crystals."  '���������Presumably" he is right, but if he  wants to know we can show him  plenty over here at Ainsworth or on  Springer Greek.  Last, year, or was it, the year before,  ihree gentlemen were appointed as  lire wardens and to them attached  some responsibility in the matter.  Possibly it is owirrg to their remarkable energy and alertness that we have  been so free from fires. But where are  they now? Have we auy Fire  Wardens? Whose watchful eye  guarantees the requisite safeguards in  all new buildings? Nelson is likely to  Iiave many new houses erected this  year and. we beg to call the attention  of our townsfolk lo the matter.  Foi" many months the town of  Nelson has rejoiced in an immunity  from fire. The iron tongue of the fire-  bell has been-heard only to summon  the eager towns-folk to bun fighjs and  peep shows. In fact if ils .trident  notes were now to be heard ringing  through the clear frosty air of midnight it is doubtful if they would  inspire that awesome dread which they  ought to. There was once, a shepherd  who went about crying wolf until���������but,  perhaps acquainted"  nnd "   will    see     its  our   readers arc  with   the    tale  application.  There was one paragraph in Mr.  Balfour's speech which is worth calling attention to. He said, "We owe  a duly to our children,.our colonies,  and those occupying positions in this  country would not deserve to retain  lhe confidence of the colonies unless  we convinced them that we were ready  and willing to defend them, and in a  ease in which we are right, we should  not abandon them." "That" is a very  ilif.ereni speech fiom one thai a statesman would have made say fifty years  ago, or when the boundary between  British Columbia and lhe .United  States was settled.  Mr. Clements Markham, as President,  ofthe Un val (icographi.nl Society of  Great Britain is the highest possible  authority on all questions relating to  the science of which he is the head.  He is recognized as" such not only liy  his country-men, bnt by Americans  and Other European nations. It is  therefore most satisfactory, that after  a prolonged investigation of the subject, he has written a long letter to the  Loudon Times declaring his belief that  England is absolutely entitled tothe  territory she claims on.tho frontiers of  British Guiana. This will Pliable up to  look"wiih confidence ,1'or.the report of  the American Commission. Precisely  the same evidence which has convinced  Mr. Markham ia~at the- disposal of the  Commission and as it is composed of i'  men of the highest ability and integrity j  there can be little doubt as to the I  nature of their report.
