DOMINION parliament.  Iii the .Dominion House Laurier moved  a six months hoist should be given to the  Remedial Hill. There, are 112 clauses in  the Bill antl the Opposition propose to  move an amendment to each of them and  talk the Bill out. Laurier opposes tlie  Budget and. will only consent to vote a  three months supply, this the Government refuse to accept.  The Opposition will only require to talk  until April 25, when the present parlia-:  ment expires by eflluction of time, and'if  supplies are not voted the elections will  have to take place, and the new parliament meet, by June 30.  Mr. Wallace opposed the Remedial Bill  strongly. Hon. Mr. Dickey supported  the measure, aud made a speech stampiug  him as one of the. strongest menjn the  Government.  The Caucus of the Conservative party  held on Tuesday is said to have been  harmonious. It is the impression that only  a dozen ministerialists will vote against  the-Kemedial Bill, ensuring the carrying  of the second reading without the aid of  Liberal votes. In committee snags are  expected to be struck.  Mills is prepared also to move amend-  ! ments to the Budget on every point, so  | between the Remedial 13111 and the  | Budget, it is possible the session will  I close without the House doing any  '��������� business.  j '   BY    TELEGHAPH.  i Ottawa, March 0.���������Debate on Remedial  | Bill s'ill continues. It is not expected to  ' be li-iislmd next week. Premier Green-  }way is expected at Ottawa after the  | second reading to talk compromise.  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  NELSON.  At the Silver King stopeing is to  commence nt once, tlie necessary timbers  have beeu got out aud takeu to the  mine. ���������������������������  The Hall Mines hiirj let a contract to  \V. Wilson to haul out 2,000 tons of ore.  The work will be carried out-by sleighs  ou the upper road nud by wagons on the  lower part wln-re there is no snow. The  sleighs will deliver their loads into n bin'  from which it will be dropped into the  wagons by a shoot. Mr. Wilsou is getting extra teams for the job from  Rosslaud.  J. Miles has lx>nded thc Majestic claim  to Henry Symonds, of Calgaiy. The  nrst payment, of ������2,000 is due on May 1  next and the balance of tbe money in  two equal instalments of $1_,00U each on  Nov. 1,18--,and May 1,18-7,respectively.'  The Majestic is situated close to the  Royal Canadian, on the hillside between  Eagle and Forty nine creeks. Miles has  spent a good deal of money on"the claim  and there is a tunnel in a considerable  distance and some other works. * He is to  be congratulated on his good fortune..  It has been found desirable to divide  the Silver King tramway into two parts  in order to lessen the enormous strains  consequent on its great length. Tbe  point of division is on the upppr side of  Give-out Creek a little above the lowest  part visible from Nelson. The necessary  machinery has been ordered by telegraph  from San Fiancisco and should arrive io  eight or ten days. On Wednesday-last  the tramway which has been working for  some days had brought down about 100  tons and it will go on working while the  new termini'are being built, so as to keep  the smelter going all tbe time. The ore  in the bins now should suffice for. the  time necessary for the alterations, which,  Mr. Parsons expects, will be less than a  week, during which work will have to be  suspended.          NAKUSP.  (From our own Correspondent.)  Mr. Johu McDonald, our boat builder,  proposes starting a branch boat house at  Slocau City.  The sharp frost of the past two days  has been of great benefit to the N. & S.  R.   Seven cars of ore came in yesterday.  Several prospectors are preparing to  go up on Cariboo Creek, to be in readiness for their assessment work on claims  located last spring.  Chief Enginee-* Stephens is taking the  engines out of the old Kootenai. They are  to be used in the new boat, the boiler for'  which is expected down by next boat,  from Arrowhead.  Work on the new steamer, under  construction for the C. & K. S. N, Co., is  being pushed along rapidly by Mr.  Bulger and his staff of men. She will be  170 feet long 38 feet beam and is intended  for freight more than passenger traffic.  Mr. W. P. Muirhead et al. have been  furnishing ice for the hotels and the C.  & K. S. N. Co. They have now their  summer's supply, but at a higher rate  than other years, as it had to be brought  by rail from the Summit lake. The hotel  at the Halcyon Hot Spring was supplied  by the'same parties, the ice and sawdust  being taken from here on a scow by the  str. Marion.  .  CORRESPONDENCE.  Assessment of Minerals.  The-question asked by nearly everyone  this week. Who framed the new Assessment Act? When first read, most mining  men thought it too absurd to imagine for  a moment it would become law, but a  a little more consideration awakened  everyone to*the"fact~that men_whb" would"  bring down such an act, might force it on  the Statutes. Hence the wave of violent  protest passed from camp to camp. From  start to finish there does not appear to be  one wise section,'the utter want of knowledge of the general conditions of mineral  development, the blissfnl ignorance of  the effect of siich a law upon the prosperity of the country, show a- density  past understanding and a placid indifference to -the welfare of the country, an  attempt to throttle in its infancy, the  industry of four-fifths of the province.  Of course necessity is the mother of  this act, the heralding'of our famous  mineral resources, only just lately beiug  practically demonstrated and attracting  capital, appears to have turned the head-i  of our financiers in tbe government.  Mining has always been the greatest  lottery of all industries and it is only the  big - prizes which continue to allure  capital. All contries where their prosperity depends upon such resources, havo  been taught by experience, that laws  relating to the gaining of minerals cannot  be too liberal and that auy "rake off" for  the state must be out of the winnings..  The Province of Ontario 'passed a  somewhat similar act 'in 1893, although  more liberal as they allowed for the cost  of mining; evidently a trifle too small for  a British Columbia minister to bothe.  about. The result was capital, sought  other fields. In 1894 they amended the  act, taxing only the net proceeds and the  act as it- now stands, exempts mines on  development ._ and - other " redeeming  clauses.  . It is evident "that revenue must be  wrnng from some source, a fair tax on  the profits would not be questioned very  much, bnt to tax .development work  would be imbecile.  Ontario doubled her miner's license  making it S10.00 a year. Providing this  applied to mine owners and locators only,  it would not be such a great hardship.  A charge of SI.00 per acre for mineral  claims, on being crown granted, could be  made a sourse of revenue. If a claim is  worth* a crown grant, itis surely worth  S1.00 per acre. Why not tax coal? There  seems millions in it.   .  Surely it is being very forcibly brought  before the great working portion of the  Electorate that from the quality and  quantity of the work performed, our  present legislators would be more at  home, under "moss covered shakes,"  than gilded domes, money would have  been saved, and tourists could have  admired the antique in perfect harmony  a.ith its surroundings. W- K.  Nelson February 27,1896.  LOCAL   NEWS.  P. Porter and D. M. Linnard were in  town looking up milling bargains.  The Hall Mines Smelter was blown  in this morning and all is going well.  The fire bell rang about noon on Monday but the cause happily waa only a  burning chimney.  Mr. C. St. Barbe, editor of The  Min eh, left for the Coast on a holiday  trip, he will be away about two weeks.  An examination ot assayers is to be  held at Victoria during the last week in  April. Full particulars will be found in  the B. C. Gazette.  The Victoria Stock Exchange will  open up for business on April 15th.  Only the best class of commercial and  niining companies will be listed.  Mr. Giffins' many friends will be  glad to know that he is much improved in health, and was able although  still at times in great pain to attend to  his duties in the Court.  ��������� Jas. Wilson, Supt. Telegraph C. P.  Ii., is here, he is fully alive to thc* requirements of the Kootenay district,  in his department, and is making arrangements for the best possible  service.  Col. S. Wharton came down early in  the week. He ia negotiating for the sale  of some ore from the Cliff to the Hall  Mines Co. He left for Everett on Monday tp see after some of the Rueccau ore  which'is being smelted there.  What we believe to be the first book  ever bound in Kootenay has just been  issued from the*-job printing office of  The Minsk. It is a register for the  Royal Hotel and was printed, ruled aud  bound entirely in this office.  J. B. McArthur, Rossland; H. M.  Herrin, Spokane; J. E. Boss, Spokane;  Geo. Buscombe, Vancouver, and Capt.  Duncan were here this week. H. T.  Twigg, P. L. S., New Denver is in  Nelson and will stay several weeks.  Messrs. J. L. Retallack and J. C. Eaton  of the Wellington, have gone to Victoria  as .delegates from Kaslo to oppose the  Assessment Bill. Mr. G. M. Sproat has  been commissioned by the people of  Sandon to act as their representative in  the matter.  ' Commencing. March loth, s. s. Nakusp will make tri-weekly trips between Robson and Arrowhead, arriving at Robson Mondays, Wednesdays  and Fridays and leaving same days.  There will be connections for Trail on  same days.  Messrs. S. Parish A Co., of Calgary and  Brandon, have opened a branch of their  business in Nelson. They have taken a  store in the Carney Block and are ready  to supply customers -with feedstufis, hay,  Hour, bacon aud other farm produce from  the fertile Northwest.  Acting up to the old proverb March  came in like a lion on Sunday last. A  fierce gale from the north east raged for  three days. At night the thermometor  was only a few degrees above zero and  fires and stoves were hardly able to keep  the intense cold out of our wooden  houses.  D: E. Bogle, once a proprietor of the  Miner, is back in Nelson from the  old country, he has had a fine time  and looks well. Civilization, however,  made him tired and he is glad to get  back to British Columbia. He is on  his way tb Rossland but stopped onto see old friends here.  Messrs. A. H. Kelly and Geo. Neelauds  have been canvassing the town for the  sinews ot war "wherewith "to combat the"  Assessment Bill. Up to last evening  thev had collected 8120 without any  difficulty. They were promised in many  cases further subscriptions if required,  and did not meet with a single man who  had a good word for the Assessment Bill.  F. C/Gamble, Dominion Gov't Engineer, -is in Nelson, on business connected with his department, during  the week he has been looking over the  Columbia River between Robson and  Trail, and is making improvements  which it is expected will greatly aid  navigation in the future at low water.  Twelve men are at work putting in  cribbing.  The Lawyers of B. C. tire holding  their annual meeting in Victoria. A  committee was appointed Lo interview  the Attorney General to ascertain  what action has been taken to introduce the Torrens system of land registration in ''his Province. This is a  step in the right direction and the  lawyers advocating this measure deserve the thanks of the community.  The following telegram was received  on Wednesday by Mr. Holt, manager  Bank of B. C, Nelson. "The Mining  tax is not on gross, but on market  value of ore, after deducting freight, if  any, and smelting charges, and three  dollars a ton for mining. All real and  personal property tax on mining property is removed by this act- There is  a tax of 2i per cent, already existing  on value of coal at mine.  J. H. Turner, Premier.  CHURCH NOTICES.

'that  he unlawfully broke out of prison by  force and violence, and 3rd, Thnt in  order to escape he did choke the complainant John Miles.  He pleaded guilty to all the charges,  but only to taking 875.00 iu money, and  asked ;the court to explain what jail-  breaking was, a pretty shrewd question.  Mr. J. H. Bowes prosecuted on behalf  ofthe Crown, and the prisoner was  sentenced to three jears imprisonment, in  the penitentiary on each charge, to run  concurrently.  CURLIANIA.  c���������:   The Kaslo Curling Club which, with  the exception of one at Golden is the  only curling club in B.

The district  medal- given by the Manitoba biancli of  the Royal Caledonian Club wascompeted  for by the members and won by Horace  D. Bucke with a score of L7 points.. Mr.  Jas. Waugh acted as umpire aud did not  .compete for the medal as he is already  the owner of numerous curliug trophies.  On Wednesday by invitation ot M r. Jas.  Turner, a rink of the Kaslo club visited  Nelson and played a friendly game with  a rink made up of Nelsou citizens spaie  of whom had some previous experience of  the game.

The contest resulted in a victory for  the visitors by a score of 13 to 3.  The visitors allowed their curling  stones to remain at the rink and a  large number of our citizens engaged  in scratch games with  keen enjoyment.  To-day (Saturday) two rinks are expected down from Kaslo and a strong  effort will be made by the scratch Nel-on  rinks to reverse Wednesday's defeat.  The ice tit the rink has been good ami  a large number has greatly enjoyed the  skating.  THE A-'TEKNOO.V GAMES.

The Scientific Press of Feb. 22 has an  interesting description of a rope tramway  in use at Empire, Nevada, for the purpose  of conveying 200 toDS of tailings daily  from the dumps to the Mexican mill a  distaoee of a little less than a mile. A  feature of this ropeway is that it turn at  an angle of CO degrees. The main rope  canyiug the buckets travels similarly to  the Nelsou tramway, but an the ground  is practically level the motive force has  to be applied from tbe mill machinery  and consumes about S h.p. The i; etbnd  of turning, the corner is ingenious and is  fully described and illustrated. The  loading and dumping are both automatic  and the total cost of traiii-fering the 200  tons is calculated to be the labor of one  man plus the cost of S h.p. which figures  ont aboutr 1% cents per ton- The total  cost of the ropeway erected in running  order was about 8_,_00.

Sixty pieces ��������� of  artillery were captured und it is rumored that the killed and wounded number 10,000.  There is great resentment ago:list  the government, and the resignation ofthe (Ji'ispi ministry is expected.

A-resolution has passed the United  States Senate recognizing the rights of  of the Cuban rebels as belligereuts. If  this  passes Congress  aud   receives   tlie  -President's-signature���������it���������is-possible-that"  trouble may .come of it. Recognizing  the rights of tbe rebels by>- a foreign  power is not in itself an act of war against  Spain, but it is dangerously near to it.  'Apparently there is at present-- a warlike  wave passing over the United SI.ilea,-'  urging a hitherto peaceable people to  have a scrap with some one. As long as  their sympathy with the? Cuban insurgents remains .in the abstract form of-  Congiessional lesoltiti-us uo harm will  come of it. bnt in the present excitable  condition ol the people their sympathy is  exceedingly likely to take a more practical shape aud then war wonld.be inevitable. Ten years ago it was the" boast of  Americans that their country was large  enough lor them and, they did not want  to mix tlieinselves up in any outi-ide  affairs. All they wanted was to be  allowfid lo go their ways in peace building up vast industries ami developing  tho wonderful, resources of" their vast  domain. But this desirable stale of  domestic felicity could not last. As the  beck of Glaus Spreckels they nearl\ fell  inlo the ir.ivtian .trap so cleverly baited  by the, great sugar speculator. Then  their .fisheries in the Xortli I'acific  brought them into contact with Knglaud.  The sudden protectorate over the whole  of Central ai:d South America will  necessarily keep., the United States  continually embroiled with one or  another Etuopeau power. Th - cry of the "  Armenians very nearly brought Uncle  Sam into that most difficult business, the  Eastern Question. What may be termed  the domc-dic ,policy seems to be a thing  of the past and the United State.- has  become a "'Powei" .with all the duties  aud responsibilities"-that attach themselves to each member of the.family of  nations. - . ���������     .,  o Spanish students at the universary  at Madrid led demonstrations of popular anger against the United States  government, they publicly burned an*  American Hag, several "arrests weie  made.

G��������� SATURDAY, MARCH 7-1.896.  wmmm  (Continued fr.uii  Last   Week.)  Oh, T know I'm gittin' old, huVl bet adol-  lar that I can jump over that bean poli  right yander."  "I'll take the bet," she replied.  "Hah, what's that? Yon don't want to  see me juinpin' round in the garden path  at night like a toad, do you? Wouldn't  like to'have it said that you married u man  simply because lie could jump over a pole,  would you? Look, don't .vou see I have  got this here horseshoe nail just to please  you? Look how 1 am putting tnvself  out." "  "But you haven't told-me that you love  me." she said, and iu the gathering darkness he could see her looking down.  "Haven't I? Well I do. Love you well  enough to let you go to the store and trade  out ten dollars' worth at a snort, and if  that ain't love, hanged if I know what is.  Yes, I even love you more than that���������I'll  let you trade out fifteen. Now what do  you say?"  "Mr. Aimes," she said, and her voice  was low and sympathetic, "your earnest  pleading warms my heart toward yon, and  it therefore grieves me to tell you tbat I  am engaged."  "The horn spoon you say! But who to?  But not to one of them men, I hope."  "Xo; not one particularly, but to all  three."  "Tbe off ox you say! But you can't  marry, all three of 'em."  "Xo. 1 can't; butl can wait aud see which  one I really want."  "Miss," said the old man, catching up  his hat and arising, "you come mighty  near being the blamest creetel- I ever  saw."  He stood there fumbling with his collar;  lie took out the nail, held it a moment in  his hand, and then, throwing it away,  said: "Thar, I have flung my love and  your honor out into the bushes. Good  night."  There was a great deal of talk in the village, and at one time it appeared that the  mite society, for whose benefit Polly had  so ardently begged a nickel here and there,  would issue an edict against her; but the  tide was finally turned by the president of  the association, a widow* with a business  eye. She saw that to cut off the newspaper was to throw away a valuable adjunct, and so it was agreed that Polly  might remain in the society and rest  simply under a mild degree of suspicion.  The question was discussed in the church,  but the preacher, strong in his belief that  ��������� church notices and abstracts of sermons  should lie printed, called a determined  halt.  How much longer the affair might have  been discussed, and into yvhat remote and  executive corners of affrighted virtue it  might have been dragged, it would he difficult to say; but the arising of a new topic  put it all aside. And this new topic was  one of real excitement. Not far away iu  the hills lived a gang of desperate men,  the Abe Peters boys, they were called. It  was known, or at least it was strongly sus-  _>_cted, that they had robbed railway  trains. Determined efforts on the part of  the law had failed to bringthem to justice:  It was believed that they had formed an  alliance with the Dalton gang, but this  their leader denied, and offered, on  condition of a pardon for himself and friends, to help the officers bring the Daltons iuto court or to kill  them. This offer was accepted. The  Daltons were killed or so badly crippled  that nothing was to be feared from theni.  Well, after this the Peters gang fought  off the temptation to rob trains, but could  not forego the pleasurable recreation ot  riding into a village now and then ,-ind  shooting out the lights. So. just about,  the time the talk concerning Polly and  ^.hVthree^me'n" wa_~sinkiiig~into~ a- mere*  whisper of dying scandal, the Peters  brothers rode into Broomville, shot tlie  town cow, wounded the prowling hog and  shattered a lamp iu the meeting house.  This was the greatest outrage that had  ever beon put upon that part of the country, and old man Aimes, with his shirt  unbuttoned, puffed up and down the  street and swore that if anyone" would go  with him he would ride after the .scoundrels. But everybody wiis busy. The  sheriff was behind ..witli his tax list, the  -constable wasn't feeling well; and while  the citizens were discussing their inability  to avenge themselves, Polly- came up and  saidthat she would go with Mr. Aimes.  - "I gad." said the old fellow, looking upon herewith admiration, "you'll drive ine  to the shop to get another horseshoe nail,  but I think too much of you to see you put  yourself in such danger. -Let's wait a  while."      -.  In the next number of her paper Polly  scored the rascals,  and  this   produced   a  - scare.    The people said   that  the  Peters  ' brothers would surely com. back and rid  die the town. And within a week afterward they did come back, shouting, galloping through the streets. In fright the  people sought their homes. The marauders dashed abouh, firing. They galloped  up to the printing ollice and fired at the  windows. And then from thc inside came  a puff of smoke and one of the Peters  fell out of his saddle. Then there arose a  furious melee, firing right and left, but the  steady hand within the office fired  again  - and out of a saddle dropped another man.  Suddenly there was - a new excitement  among the marauders, and from.behind a  goods box came the double roar of a shotgun. The Peters brothers, those not on  the ground, ducked their headsanddashed  away, and when Polly stepped out, Xell,  with a gun in her hand, came from behind  the box. "I was watching," she said, "and  I thought you needed me."  CHAPTER III.  Three meu had been dangerously wounded, and the law, now brave enough,, took  charge of them. Polly and Nell weve  heroines. The president of the mite society called a special meeting in their honor,  and old man Aimes made a speech, wit h  his shirt collar buttoned almost tight  enough to choke him. Now it was declared that Polly should never leave the village; and it was also avowed that if she  wanted to be acquainted  with three men  - from away off somewhere itwas her right,  and that it was nobody's business if she  had chosen to engage herself to them.  .  One afternoon Aimes called at the office'  and told Nell to go home. "Go right oo  now and wait there till I come," he said,  th'_*/���������"_: to wfc-HM. t? _______ hut ���������aajyng  ;OLk-*J IdS^PP  aK  OP'E f\BK>  loud enough to" be heard o c in the  Direct.    "Yes, right now, and when I do  come I may have a mighty interestin'  pieco of news for you."  "Nell went out and Polly knew what  was coming. The old man sat down.  "Little cooler than it was yesterday," ho  said.  "Yes," she replied. "Cooler than it waa  day before yesterday."  "find, I reckon you are right. Say, do  you ricollect that some time ago I told you  about my field of corn down the creek?  Well, you ought to,see it now. Seventy-  five or a hund red busheis to the acre. And  you know that, I told you that you might  even spend fifteen dollars. Of course you  ricollect it, for how could a woman and as  brave a woman as you ever forget it.  Well, I have been thin kin' the matter over  since then and I have come to the conclusion that you may spend twenty dollars at  a snort,.   Xow what do you think of it?"  "But you don't owe me anything,".she  replied.  "So. but I want to give it to you, don't  you see���������give it to you to spend at a snort,  iiah? t want to marry you, don't you,  understand?"  "Mr. Aimes, you are too brave a man to  throw yourself away."  CHAPTER III-CONTINUED.  "Now look here, don't come atwittin' of  me," he said. "I was goin' to help you  shoot them fellers, but, hang it, Nell took  tliii gun and slipped away with it before I  could get to the house. I can't run as fast  as I could at one time."  "Butl saw you running through the  street and a deer couldn't have beeu  faster."  "You are right, aud I was runnin' for  the gun."  "But you were not running toward your  house." "  "No, of course not, for I knew that Nell  had tuck my gun and I was goin' after au-  ! other one.   And it's a good thing for them  | that I didn't get it.   But let us git down  i to business.   I have been thinkin! the mat-  i ter oyer and I have come to the conclusion'.  that I can't git  along  very well without  you and I  know   Nell can't.   Why, look  here, you ought to  be  a'' mother to that  girl, hah?   Didn't she risk her life to help  you?   And ain't such courage as that de-  servin' of a mother?   It's easy enough to  be a mother to her."  "Yes, hut I can't very well be a mother  to both of you."  "The horn spoon! I don't want" you to  be a mother to me; want you to be a wife  tome." .,  "I think a great deal of you, Mr.  Aimes." ���������  "  "Blceged to you, I gad."  "And I will break my engagement to  those three men and engage myself to you  for one year."  "Cut it down and I'm with you."  "All right, we'll say three months."  "And ���������will you . swear you won't fool  me?"  "I'll swear that I will not break the engagement unless you are willing."  -  "But here, you won't cut up no caper  in the meantime that will cause me to  draw off, hah? All right now, it's a go,  and I'll tell that old woman to weave another rag carpet.'' He stopped at the door,  turned about and remarked: "Ain't quite  as chilly as it was yistidy."  And before she could reply he had lunged out into the street and was hastening  to tell his daughter of ��������� his happiness.  When Polly reached home, just as twilight  was tangling itself amid the dead vines in  the garden, she found Nell standing at ths  gate, waiting for her. The girl was nervous, and she opened the gate with a jerk.  ���������iiWhat-have-you -told-fatherP-'-J-she asked,-  wheu Polly passed tin-ouch the gate.  "Don't go into the house just yet; wait  here a moment. What . have you told  father?" she repeated.  Polly stood there, laughing at her, but  she grew more nervous. "Itis nothing to  laugh at," she said. . "You told-me, or  that is you agreed, that we should never  marry and that we should live together."  "Don't be worried; I was only joking  with him."  "But, .Polly, that was no way to joke  with an old man. He is one of the. best  men in the world, ami all that, but you,  don't want to marry even the best man."  "It will work out all right, Nell; don't  worry over it."   - a   -  "But how can it workout.all right?"  "Wait, and you shall see."  "Yes. and that's what you said'about  those three men, and that hasn't worked  out all right yet. I have tried, so hard tc  understand you, Polly, -but-sometimes 1  i jiist- can't. Why do you wish to mystify  ine? Haven't I" always been frank with  you?"       - "    ."  "Yes, too frank, perhaps."  "That's what 1 .sometimes think myself.  But here comes father."  The old man came out, wearing a horseshoe nail mounted as . a breastpin. "Father," said the girl, "if I were you I would  take off that fool thing and throw it  away.". ������������������   -  "Throw away my betrothal pledge, hah?  Not much. You go on into the house and  Polly and I will walk down and look at.  that bottom field of corn by moonlight."  '*f don't care to walk this evening,"  Polly replied.   "I'm tired."     -  ���������'All right, we'll wait  till   some  other  time; but say, you might let me' kiss you.  once just for luck."  i ' ."No, you've had' luck enough.   By tho  | way, there is a. clause   that I must insert  j in our contract,   and that is this: If you  | speak to me again or to anyone about our  ] compact the engagement shall be instantly  broken.   There, not a word or I'll break it  j right now."  ;    To observe the new   clause  required on  {the old man's   part  a.  strong exertion of  1 will: and sometime!*,   iu   babbling'about  I his bottom   field   of  corn,  he approached  ��������� near the danger line."   News of rh. engage-  '��������� meut got out.   but   the   old   fellow swore  i that he had told'tio one; but   he   had been  ! seen talking to the pre.-iden1". of the mite  ' society, and '-": wa-*   known   that   she had  . spread the, report.   And   she said many  - things, that   wen: not complimentary to  Polly; wiii.-'that she  had come to Broom-  field merely to catch a husband,   c. he even  stopped Polly in the street and  asked her  when the marriage was to take place.

At the moment of writing, the  Assessment Bill is up for its second  reading and it is understood to be thi*  intention of the government, to pass it  with some slight amendments. Our  legislators have possibly been attending the niining lectures at the coast,  or they may have read an article  which appeared in our last issue. Anyhow they have discovered that, placer  miners have no oreon the dump. They  have therefore decided to tax I hem on  their gross return of gold and at the  end of the year to hand them back the  amount of the tax on their working  expenses. As these latter very often  exceed" the returns, the placer men,  according to this sapient amendment,  will sometimes be in the happy position of receiving a government bonus  on their losses. A little ingenuity on  the part of the placer miner in constructing his balance sheet is all that is  required to make this class of mining  highly popular.  In rock and quartz mining three  dollars a ton is to be allowed for mining and the tax is to be assessed on  the balance ot the value of the ore  after deducting freight and treatment.  This is a movein the right direction. A  tax on the net value of the ore is not  more palateable than other taxes, but  if monev has to be got, Kootenay, as  we have said before, will pay her  share. But at the same time most of  the objectionable features of the tax  f������till remain. The offensive inquisitorial powers given to the assessors, ihu  hardship on poor men of having to pay  .their taxes long before they get any  returns, and worst of all, the burden  on gross instead of net values, all these  are left.  The government is strong. Let them  also be merciful. If the placer miner  is to be reimbursed the (ax on the  amount of his working expenses so as  to leave him taxed only on his nm  income, why cannot the quartz mi tier  receive similar treatment?  We can assure the government thai  iu passing the bill even in its present  amended shape they will be defeating  their own ends. They will seal up the  springs of revenue that are commencing to flow so bounteously from the  mountains of Kootenay. Let them  state the amount of money they  expect to gather from us every year  and then ask a represen iative com-  'mittee-ofoui-mining- men-how it can  be collected with" the least amount ol'  hardship to the miners. This of  course should have been done before,  but it is not too late now.  A MINING ASSOCIA TION.  We entirely agree with our contemporary in the matter of t he necessity  for a mining association. - The condi-  .. tion of the Mineral Acts is a reproach  to the country. Their complications  puzzle even lawyers so that the  ordinary miner may readily be excused  if sometimes he fails to follow in the  path  laid down for him.   No excuse  . how.ever is allowed. Tbe law inflicts  but one penalty, confiscation of the  propeity. There is no one to advise  the government as to desirable amendments. The recent attempt to impose  a tax on0 the mining industry which  would' be perfectly crushing in ils  effects, bears on the face'of it evidence  that the men who guide the destines  of British Columbia are not conversant  with tha nature and needs of the great  industry of Kootenay. No one supposes that in draughting the special  clauses    relating    to    mines    in   the  ' Assessment Bill that. Ministers had  any idea that they were imposing a  prohibitive tax on miuing, or that  they were treating it unfairly as compared with other classes of property.  Yet such was the case, and it may be  attributed to a lack of knowledge of  affairs.  Under these circumstances and to  keep an eye on future contingencies a  Board of practical mining men is  necessary. They should be appointed  by an association composed of dwellers  in Kootenay, for in Kooteuay we ate  all either directly or indirectly interested in or dependant on"the mine.1* for  our living. Every element of party  politics should be carefully eliminated  from the Association and its ranks  should be open to all, whether subjec'.s  of Her Majesty or no'. By the  bounteous freedom of ���������>���������*���������. British  Constitution all men alike are welcome  to pursue the arts of peace within our  border's and it stands to reason that  though interference with our politics  could not be permitted, they still have  a right'"'to be heard as1 members of a  non-political association on matters  concerning an industry in which they  are as much interested as ourselves.  The very arguments which are now  being used to urge our right to be  heard on mining matters in the Transvaal can equally be applied to our  American cousins sojourning amongst  us. The voice of a board chosen from  such an association would represent  the whole district and carry the  weight of n people unanimous in the  expression of their desires.  Our contemporary proposes March  IS, as a day suitable for holding a  meeting to form a mining association,  but we nre afraid that there will be no  meet ing either there or anywhere else  on the mere strength of a newspaper  suggestion. Invitations to all prominent mining men should be;issued by  someone of weight and authority.  Then we think they will respond, for  the want of an association is obvious  and urgently required.  We trust, that the Tribune will  receive the loyal support of the entire  local press in lhe formation of this  body .and that no local jealousies will  be allowed to interfere- with the  accomplishment of so desirable an  object, ...  SELF RELIANCE.  The recent storms that have suddenly  surged up and ruffled the fair ocean of  peace that lay about the whole world  have sufficed for a warning that in  spite of seeming security war is  imminent, and may break out in any  quarter at any moment. Diplomacy  could not foresee President C_-_ve:  r.AN'o'.s message or the Emperor  William's telegram to the Transvaal.  England is not going to neglect such a  warning and her reply to it comes,in  the Naval estimates which were  brought down to the House by Mr.  Goscuex, the First Lord of the  Admiralty. They provide for an  expenditure during the year of <������21,000  000, an increase of -������7,000,000, over last  year. England can very well afford  this enormous expense and is perfectly  willing to do so. She grudges nothing  that secures her safety as a great commercial nation. She is called a nation  of shopkeepers and so .she is with  branch ; houses all over the. world, and  she does not," mean to have her trade  interfered with by anyone. In con  eluding his remarks Mr. Goschen said  that whether England was to.stand  alone or to act with .other powers the  motto of her navy in either case must  be. "Self Reliance."  NOTES.  The Arernon people are making a  strong protest against the proposal of  che legislature to extend the time for  che completion of the railwayjbetween  Trail and Penticton to six years.- We  are most cordially with our neighbors  m.i.h. Okanagan Valley on this matter.  Our opinions thereon were set out in  some remarks we made anent a similar  proposal on the part of the B. ���������<..  Southern.-.��������� The extended concessions  simply enable capitalists to occupy the  Held to ihe exclusion of anyone else.'  A long" letter is printed in a recent  number of the Canadian Mining  Llnview on the Mechanical Separation  of Lead -Zinc ��������� Sulphides. Ic is we  believe simply an advertisement of a  .ne_w_uniiuhLne_.foi__ac<-on*plishing__thiy  desirable end. This machine may be  gooil or bad. It is not the Ashcroft  process recently introduced to New  couth Wales" of which we spoke last  week. The only part'of the letter  which we think worth printing at  present is the last paragraph as  follows:-"In conclusion, I advise our  British Columbia miners once more;  Do-not hastily buy mills before you  have a mine, and when you get a mine  and you know your ore thoroughly,  buy the best, that is the most economic machine in.the market." To this  we would add, let the machine maker  do the testing aud do not buy his  machine until he has tested it for you.  We have a sort of memory that the  defence in a recent assault, case was  that the accused party had been  goaded lo madness by the implication  rhat he was���������in plain,language���������a liar,  lie did not like being called a liar and  yet we notice that this same person  whose own feelings are so exceedingly  Ceuder on this matter has'no objection  whatever to hurt the feelings of others.  In the concluding sentence in a paragraph which appeared in last Saturday s Tribune,' that paper in so many  words accuses the Rossland Miner of  being au "abject liar." Can it be that  the editor of the Rossland Miner is too  far off-to hit, back? oris it the wild  grief of an outraged parent at seeing,  its own off-pring turn and rend it,''that  ieads the Tribune into these excesses?'  Our Rossland namesake is exceedingly indignant, at the alleged non  payment of timber dues by certain  lumber companies, and it includes in  its sweeping anathema the C.P.R. and  C, <fc K. Navigation companies on the  ground that lhey,. are in arrears in  payment of the tax on the cord-wood  which they use for their engines aiid  steamboats.' Now as a matter of fact  we believe both these companies buy  their. - cord-wood from contractors  which should absolve them from the  charge of evading the tax, even if there  was une,.but as a matter of fact the--  is no. due or royalty or any other kind  ufj tax on cord-wood. The accusation  therefore falls to the ground, ahd the  Rosslaud Miner and its ."very high  authority" would do well to study the  laws of British Columbia.  !     We can J more  than agree with our  ' contemporary's remarks on the dima-  inn ci   i;n 1   p)-'i!K'-'-_   to be given to  jlr.   Hoin-0.'-*--We"-cannot see why he  i should receive a bonus for bis smell...  when every poor miner has to develop  his mine entirely unaided and taxed at  every tuin into the bargain. Every  man who develops a good prospect  benefits the country in proportion  just as much as the man who builds a  smelter. . The bonus system is all  wrong, lock, stock and barrel. The  discrimination of it is unfair and  abominable. If one man gets a slice  of public money everyone else ought  to have it. Where is the end to be?  Surely the government cannot, with  any show of consistency pour thousands of dollars into Mr. Heinze's lap  with one hand while with the other it  scoops the- cieam off oui'mines with  its proposed assessment tax.  But if-the land is to be reserved for  Mr. Heinze to cut cord-wood olV, let  measures be taken to see that he cuts  only the cord-wood and not the merchantable timber. Of which, there are  millions of' dollars worth on the block  proposed to be reserved.  We are exceedingly sorry to again  lake exception to another paragraph  in our Rossland contemporary's issue  of the 20th."'in its1 editorial notes it  makes some ^reflections on Mr. Geo.  Johnstone, Col lector of Customs which  are certainly not warranted. Rossland  .people, and indeed an important mining company hearer home, also, have  lately been put to a.great deal of inconvenience through certain Customs  regulations. But Air. Johnstone is no  more respopsible for . these than the  editor of the Rossland. paper is. The  Collector hasjsimply to do his duty as  laid down for him from Ottawa., and if  in doing so he, has incurred unpopularity, the fault is that, of the department; . it is not his. The insinuation  that Mr. Johnstone does riot, attend to  his business is laughable to Nelson folk  who know that the.midnight oil burns  late every uight in the Customs house,  and perhaps after our well known  "Postmaster General" there is no  harder worked man in Kootenay than  the Collector of Customs.  ., It may, be of interest to mention that  the objectionable regulations which  have given rise to all the trouble are  not peculiar to the Canadian Customs.  Theircount.erpa.rts exist in the Customs  of the United States. They are framed  apparently, with the sole object :if  hampering trade. They afford no  revenue, they defeat no fraud, they  simply add to the unpopularity of the  Department. The only possible good  in them is that they hasten the day  when the people willrise and rule the  Department instead of bowing their  necks to the tyrannical and obnoxious  yoke of officialdom.  i-koi essiox u. c.iitns.

BOSSLAND.  An Aount   ot   the Groat   Gold   Camp  Alter  One, Year's Insistence.  - (From our Special Correspondent.)  (Continued  from  L-ist, AVeek.)  AY. may now take a more specific view  of so-iie-of the le-din},' properties in the  camp. Tlie workings on the Le Hoi  being the deepest cud most extensive in  the cuinp will-erve ns ii fair example of  what otlier-- iiiny hope tu become. In  this property mi immense chute of hifjh  grade ore Inns recently been opened in  crosHOUtiinu' for a true wall. The men  hnd been using si i-t'iiii t" shoot from unci  for a time this wns Dicmulit lo be the wall.  A flake was thrown nil' and on exniuinn-  liou proved to be ore. The result is an  addition of fiom fit) to CO feel of a new  chute that, runs from $70 to 8!X) per ton  in Rold aud copper. 'Phis with lhe other  showings makes the Le Itoi one of the  richest nnd most extensive properties not  only in Kootenay but in America. About  IOC)" tons from the mine are now beinj*  ������������������hipped daily to the big smelter nt Trail  and the property is iu such shape that  tlie output can be increased sufficiently  to meet almost any demands which may  be made for the ore-  The War Eagle, another very valuable  property, is doing little just now. Operations have been -iispended pending thc  placing of au important addition to the  power drill plaut. The machiuery is now  in the country and in about six weeks  power will be turned on agaiu and development pushed more rapidly than ever.  A large chute of ore bas been opened in  llie No. 1 tunnel and the ore body has  been cut in the No. 2 tunnel at a distance  of 700 feet in. The Iron Mask, also che  property of this company, now has n  shaft down nearly 100 feet and a quantity  of Rood ore taken out. The big chute on  the War Kagle will be reached by i-  tunnel through the Iron Mask which  will tap the lead iu about 1,300 to 1,400  feet.  Uo-h the Le Itoi and . Win- Eagle are  dividend paying companies.  The Center Star, .-.uolher of the great  properties . of this section, is being  thoroughly prospected and no attempt is  being made to ship at pi;es.ut. The  chute is lapped by a tunnel which will  land the product direct ou the tram cars  of the Trail Smelter Company. A mining expert of experience and ability has  placed the value of the oi e in sight on  this property at over one million dollars.  The woik is being pushed vigorously by  means of. an air compressor plaut and all  the most, improved machiuery.  The Crown Ir-oinfc is now down 150 feet  iu. ore aud the. -.drift ou the first level is  also in a good showing of excellent  _ mineral. Among the olh.*r properties  that are showing strong indications of  permanent value may be noted the Nickle  Plate with a heavy body of ore exposed  in the 100 ft. level. ' The Iron Horse, the  Homestake with a shaft down 50 feet.  The' Indiana Consolidated from which a  shipment of 860 ore has been taken out  of aD open out, aud many others.  Recent discoveries have pointed out  the probability of two distinct belts iu  this section. From the secoud belt ore  carrying a considerable per ccntage of  iirgeutiferous galena has beeu located and  good returns seemed.  ; At the present, time transportation  presents the most important difficulty.  Heavy haulage to either Trail or North-  port is necessary. This will be adjusted  presently by two means. First by the  tramline down to the town of Trail which  will handle all the ore going to the  smelter at that point and return what  river traffic may come via Trail for Rossland. The second will be a road from  Northport. ��������� This will give direct connection by all rail in two directions aud a  water route up or down.  With  these facilities and  the assured  Values of her mineral deposits there is no  reason  why this district should not take  !a' front rank among the miuing centers of  the world. Cui-.E Cuako.

He's nothing  to me, goodness knows. And so far as  that's concerned, I could have married  him long ago. I suppose the match will  be very suitable, lie's getting old and  you're not so'very young yourself. Those  city women have a knack of hiding their  age, too. Oh, yes, I should think that you  are very well suited. It's nothing to me,  I'm suro."  "Good, and J hope that you will accept  au invitation to my wedding."  "Oh, 1 am the last person in the world  to go to weddings. Of course if it's a romantic affair 1 don't mind going, but a  cut and dried marriage never did catch  me. Oh, by the way, what will those three  strange men think?"  "I don't know, but I have invited them  to the wedding.".  "Miss, I must say that you nre about the  curisest critter I ever saw, and it strikes  me that the less a body has to do with you  the better it .will be for 'em."  Several months passed, and the expiration of the lease was approaching. And  so was the time set for Polly's marriage.  The bottom iiuld had yielded lavishly and  tlie old man wore a new homespun suit.  "You know we had a sorb of a contract,"  he said to Polly one evening.  "Yes, but if youspeakof the engagement  I'll break it."  "I gad, you've  got  ine  wound up in a  close place.    I'd like   to ask you if it ain't  about time   you "was  gettin'   your  dress  ready, and all th-it sort of thing."  "Look out now, Mr. Aimes." ^  The old man diicked'his head as though  a stone had been thrown at him. "All  right, miss, but don't forget to blow the  horn when you are ready.  lt was morning, and Polly and Nell  were sitting iu the parlor at home, Polly  had said that as the lease was about to  expire there was no need of going to the  ollice. "We will wait," she said, "and let  the owner oi the paper come here if he  wants to see us."  "Do you   think of   taking   it   again?"  Nell asked, with a touch of sadness in her  voice.  "No, I think not."  "So then you are in earnestaboutmarry-  ingfather?"  "No,'I think not."  "You think not? Don't you know?"  "Yes. I think I do."  "Polly, you have one of your mysterious  fits to-day. What's the* use in keeping up  this foolishness? Tell him that you can't  marrv him. .You have let it run on so  long already that he has gone to the expense of getting a new suit of clothes!"  "Yes, but he hasn't any more clothes  now than he heeds."  Nell sighed and Polly looked dreamily  out into the garden. "Your coming and  your stay has been a romance tome.PolIy,  and now it must end." She sat with her  elbow on a table and meditatively and  deftly was touching her hair. The sunlight, streaming through the high window, fell upon her. illumined her, and the  sad glow of a wish-dream was in her eyes..  Out in the road, dodging about, stalked a  young man, a smitten clown, dying to  catch a glimpse of her. "Yes, you:- coming was so strange a romance, bringing to  me a mind that I could admire, and now  'the music must end in a dry crackle."  Polly went to her, leaned over hev,kissed  her. "Your romance may not end." she  said. "But suppose that I should tell you  "that vour romance had been brought by a  circus woman."  "You a circus woman? I didn't know  that they were so noble and brave."  "I did not say that I was a circus woman,  but suppose I were one; and suppose those  three meu came to persuade me to go back  into the ring."  "Oh, you are clearing up one mystery.  Go on and you may clear up another."  :"But is there any other mystery to clear  up?"  "Oh, not exactly a mystery, but how.are  you going to satisfy father that you should  not marry him?" c  "Oh, probably he will laugh at the idea  to-morrow."  "But why should he when his mind is  now set upon it? Do you think that he  wfil decline to marry you because you have  been a circus woman?" *  "Xo, not particularly."  "Oh, you are becoming mysterious again,  Polly. "Why don't you be absolutely frank  with me?"  ."I will be, but not until after twelve  o'clock to-day."  CHAPTER III���������Continued.  "There you go again, leading me out into deeper and darker water, but I suppose  I must accept your, terms. Who is that  out there that keeps gazing in here?"  "Some fellow desperately gone on you.  Shall I go out and knock him down?"  "Goodness, no: he is doing no particular  harm.    But I wish he would go away."  "You don't like admircrv, do you?" .  "The right sort of admirers, yes; but to  be admired by ignorance is a cheap victory." - .   .  In Polly's eyes was the light of strong  admiration as she looked at thc girl. "You  surprise me nearly every day," she-said.  "I did not expect, to Iind so bright a creature in-this dingy place." ,  "Oh.'.' Nell laughed, "you think I am  bright just because the. place is dingy, it'  doesn't take much of. a butterfly to look  pretty when it settles in the mud."  Polly was silent, meditative; and when  she spoke again there was in her voice a  new tone, a tremulous sadness. "I am  one.or the shrewd children of the world,"'  she said, "and you are a clover-scented  child of the meadow, but/simple as you  are, yours is a wisdom that I could never  reach. There's that id.e fellow leaning on  the fence.   Shall 1 drive him away?"  ���������'I wish you would tell him that he is  annoying me. No, it might hurt his feelings."  This made Polly laugh so loudly that the  fellow, thinking that the women were  making fun of him, strode away. "One  to contemplate your tenderness," said the  woman of the world, "would ..scarcely  think that you had ever turned loose a  double-barrel shotgun amid a lot of men.  "Oh, I did that for you. and. if I had  thought that the fellow-out there was annoying you, .1 should have driven him  away long ago."  "My dear, I might take that .as a rebuke," Polly replied, ".but I won't," she  quickly added. ' t  !Nell got up. brushing the sunbeams out  of her eyes, and walked about tlie room.  "1 feei so strung-* today.", she said.  "Something must surely be going to happen. I wi<-ii that editor would cuinc5over  here and b-.-g you to take his paper for another year.';  '.'Perhaps he couldn't induce me to take  it."  "Ohi'but you are not thinking of going  with th* circus again, are you?" ..,_  "You shall soon see what I intend to  do."  "But don't do anything to _eparate us.".  Polly had begun to read a, newspaper.  "Did you hear what I said?   Now what  can be in that paper ���������'    '-* ** "  i was just  reading  about a  peculiar  organization that I happen to know some-'  thing about.   Some time ago an old man,  a crunk, died in Chicago, having willed  his money to a "club, or rather to several  trustees who were to form such a club a������:  he should name.   It was to be called the  Test Club and was  to  have  but  thirty  members.   When a candidate should apply for membership, a test was to be imposed upon him, and, if he carried it out  faithfully, he   wns  to  be admitted as a  member and thereafter share in the dividends arising from certain investments;  and as the dividends were large there was  a rush for membership.   And 1 see by this  article that a woman demands the right.to  apply for memliership, vowing that she is  willing to undergo any. test that may bo  imposed upon her."  "What nonsense," was the girl's comment.   "A woman ought to know that so  soon as she gets out of her real sphere she  is robbed of her force, the power that she  should.wield over men."  "1 don't know much about the power  that women wield," Polly replied,  "but I  don't think that a woman would make a  good ringmaster."  "A ringmaster, Polly?    What do jrou  mean?"  "Why, a ringmaster in a circus.  "Oh.   But why should you so frequently  refer to the circus?   I just believe that you  intend to run away and leave us."  "I think not.   By the way, - what. time'  does the stage come inf" _  "The first one comes at a little after  eleven.   Why do you want to know?"   ,  "Oh,,I just happened to think about it."  "But why didn't you happen to think  about it before?" .    .  "And for that matter," Polly quickly  replied, "why don't we happen to think  about everything before?" ....  They laughed at each other, and Nell,  seizing her friend, pretended that she waa  going to put her out of the  house, but  Polly, taking hold of her arms, gave her.  an easy upward swing and stood her on 'a.  chair.    . "Gracious    alive,"   Nell    cried,  springing down; "how  strong  you are.,  Did riding a horse in a circus make you.so.  muscular?"  "Perhaps riding a horse was not all I  did.   I might have handled cannon balls."  "I should think you did.   Ohi" she suddenly  exclaimed,    looking   through  the  window: "yonder come those three strange  men." ...  Polly arose and glancing at the clock  said: "I am going to my room, and you  must entertain them until I come down  I won't be long."  "But let me tell them that you don't  wish to see them.   They will persuade you  to go away with them."  "No; tell them that 1 shall; be down in a  few moments."  She hastened upstairs.   The men came  to the door.   "May we come, in?'.' one oi!  them asked.  She invited them in with a certain'stiff-  ness of manner, and .when. they,, had sat  down  one   of   them   asked:     "Where's  Polly?" '.' V  "Miss Lopp has gone to her room.   She  will be down soon.   Do you  wish to see  her on very important business?"  "Well, rather."  "But if you have any ^word for her why  cai.'t I take it?" .      '".-.��������� ....      ;...,.-,->���������  "(J'.!. I guess we'd better see her." '  "I hope you  won't  persuade  her tp gff  away." - .-.-'.  "Ah, vou have become friends, I take  it." * . ......,.,., -,,  "Ye-. devoted friends."..  "Nice girl,"  said th* . man.

She is the - noblest .and  bravest creature in the world." '  "That so? Never saw her tried. . Is  that her stamping around upstairs?"  Nell made  no  answer,  and .they sat in  silence.   After  awhile. they heard Polly:  coming down the stairs.   The stair door  opened  and  out. stepped���������a man.   ,Nell  uttered a sharp cry and  covered her face  -with_her.-hands The���������man-approached.:  her, and bending over ber said:   "I was a .  candidate for admission into that club and  -the test was that Ishould be a woman for  one year." ��������� ��������� ���������   ��������� ....  "Oh!'.' she sobbed, "and I 'have-toldyou  things that I should not have told anyone.''  "Yes," he replied, still bending over her;  "and you have shown me the purest mind  and the noblest heart that man has ever  found." He leaned . further over and  whispered to her, and the (ace that she  turned up to his was. radiant with a confused happiness.. Just at this moment old  Aime3 stalked in.
