TJIEKMOMKTKlt.  weather has  and summer  On thu' Siinilkameen great preparations are being made for hydraulicing  this year and some rich strikes of  quart/, are also reported.  Ou Boundary Mountain a few miles  fHither tu the west Messrs. Turner nud  Trues are prospecting the suowshoe with  tho diamond drill aud are said to be  more thau sati.fied with the results so  far.  The Gold Drop claim adjoining has a  ledge which they have crosscut aud found  to be near a Hundred feet wide. It is  expected that they will take up the bonds  wheu due.  Messrs. Thomet and Wood huve been  developing their Noith Stai claim iu  Long Lake camp with satisfactory  results aud Mr. \V. T. Smith has beeu  blowing exceedingly rich ore out of the  Last Chance in Smiths camp.  Investors are beginning to come in and  iu consequence we hear of the sale of the  rich Skylark claim and of the great  copper claim iu .Copper camp.  Aunconda and Greenwood City the  twin cities of Boundary Creek are buildiug up rapidly and keeping two sawmills  busy all the time. On Rock Creek  Mountain aud at Camp MoKiuney pros  pects improve steadily.  Mr. Sidley has sold his free gold miue  und the Cariboo- miue at Camp McKiu-  uey is richer than ever after a most  profitable ruu of over two years. The  same company have begun hydrauliciug  at tiie mouth of Rock Creek on what is  left of the old rich bencbes������_ere.  AtFairview we hear of the sale of the  Morning Star to a coast company for  g.r.O,Oi.O und the bonding of three other  rich' claims, the Smuggler, Stemwinder  and the Joe Dandy. In consequence of  which the , two years sleep of this camp  seems likely to be awakened before long.  On the North Fork of Kettle river there  is news of a good strike in Evan's camp  and the lessees of ths Volcanic Mouutain  mines are pleased with the result of such  work .as they have ��������� done so far. The  Seattle claim is looking if possible better  than ever aud there cau be no doubt but  that with the arrivul of the Columbia  Western Railway will come very stirring  times iudeed.  The Columbia and Western Railway  company have two parties, in the field  prospecting for suitable passes for  their railway fj'om Trail to Penticton.  Mr. Tye is ��������� ut between Grand Porks  and Trail and Mr. Sullivan between  Grand Forks and Penticton. It is expected that they will have-enough in  formation in six weeks to be able ������������������*���������  put locating parties in the Held.  MR. MARA, M. P. AT NELSON.

Sword the representative of the1  Ingersoll Rock Drill Co. is superintending the installation of the new plant at  thc Josie."  At, a meeting'of the Poorman company  in Spokane it w:is decided to make no  further assessments ou tlie stock, and to  ship ore instead. The first shipment  leaves at ouce.  J. H. O'Leary who recently purchased  Dan McGillivrny's share in the C..& C has  put a force of men to work ou the claim  to open it up arid develop the ore body.  Voluey D. Williamson has transfened  his bond on ihe City of Spokane to Mr.  Barnard'- .company, the Lillooet Fraser  River ���������& Cariboo Gold Field** Ltd. The  bond has 5) months to run and is for  $05,000. It is rumored tbat "the same  company will take over the North Star.  Two thirds of the Mabel have" been  purchased from Ef. Stevenson for $.000  cash. The purchasers are tUe W. A".  Ritchie,- syndicate.' Mr. Stevenson has  just bought the property from Judge  Newton. He retains one-third interest  for which he will take stock in the company that is to be formed. The Mabel  is on Centre Star creek and adjoins the  Cliff and City of Spokane.  Upwards of a ton of rich looking ore  has been brought to Victoria by Capt.  John Irving from Surita Creek which  runs into Barclay Sound.  The Skylark and Denver claims at  Greenwood City have been bought by  the Lexington Co of Butte Montana  for $20,000, one half cash.  It is reportedjthat |a strike of rich  free milling gold rock has been made  in the Empress mine at Jack Fish near  Port. Arthur. Tt is said to go over  $1(10 in gold..  Capt. Irving says the l<*_lge is of immense size, over 300 feet thick, nnd can  be traced by croppings to the top ofthe  mountain. The claim is easily accessible being only about half a mile from  the shore. The Captain estimates that  thore nre 100,000 tons of ore in sight,  valued at $1,000,000 ' When we add  that "'the ore resembles, that of Trail  Creek" we have said all that is -necessary. .     ������������������ '-  The Crown Point Gold Mining Co.,  has been incorporated in Spokane with  with the usual million dollar capital.  The incorporators huve crownogrants  on the Crown Point,Hidden Treasure,  and White Swan claims. The trustees  are John A. Finch. V. D. Williamson,  J. D. Farrell, W. H. Williamson. Chas.  Dougherty. "R. K. Niel and H. K.  Galushn. The mines are in the South  Belt at Trail Creek and have already  had a good deal of development 'work  done on them. ''-  one   hundred  persons were  present and Mr. Croasdaile was voted  tu the chair.   He briefly addressed thu  meeting and then called on Mr.  Main-  Mr. Mara  said that he was glad to  meet so many of the constituents.   Hi-  had   intended   to   visit the   outlying  parts of his huge constituency   first  and then later on come to Nelson ami  other   more  central   places,   but  his  friends had pointed out that his adversary had already been here and had  arranged a committee   and   advised  him (Mr. Mara)  to  loose   no   time  in  visiting  Nelson.     Therefore   he   had  changed   his   plans and  was  paying  rather a hurried visit but hoped to  come again before polling day.  POL.CIE8 OF THE PARTIES.     ,  He then contrasted the policies of  the two parties. The Liberals, he said  had no distinct policy, some of them  were advocating free trade straigh1,  others more or less protection, while  others were talking of commercial  union with the British .'Empire, or reciprocity with the United States, Ou tin-  other hand the policy of the Conserv-.  ative party was well known. It was a  bold and progressive policy calculated  to build up a nation within the boundaries of the Dominion. It was, based  on the lines of protecting the manufacturer so as to eucourage large  centres of industry, by putting a duty  on manufactured articles, while  udmitting raw material free. The interest of lhe miners was not foi gotten.  Their machinery (of a kind not manufactured in Canada) was admitted fw,  and a bonus was offered to the... smelling industry. Mr. Mara then.quoted  numerous figuraa going to prove the  prosperity of the Dominion under the  Conservative government. The savings of the people had very much in-;  creased and_ in conseqnence. of ib.  economical management of thecountry  Canada can borrow money at a cheaper  rate than any other country under  the British flag.  TUB REMEDIAL BILL.  A local.paper had accused him of  having no back bone because he voted  in favor of this measure. There are  times.when it is_, easier.to do wrong  than to do right. When he cast this  vote he was perfectly aware that it  would displease many of his constituents but he felt that when the  whole matter was explained and understood it would be found that he had  done what was right. He was not an  advocate of separate schools generally.  He believed in a national school sysem  such as we have in British Columbia.  Where children of all denominations  were educated together they grew up  in a greater spirit "of of toleration and  made better citizens. That however  was not the question which the bill  suggested. The real question was  whether the minority of the people of  Manitoba had any rights or not. Toe  speaker then went into lengthy  details of the history of the ctse indicating that at the time of Con-!  federation the Roman Catholics of  Manitoba were guaranteed their rights  to separate schools. It was this same  right which the majority of Manitoba  proposed to wrest from the minority.  The hill therefore was one to protect  "that minority~in'!_"th-ir-right_;~which  had been confirmed to them by  the Privy Council, the highest court  in the realm. In supporting that bill  he felt.sure that he was acting in iic-  cordance with British fair play. If the  people threw out the government on  this question they would only* return  the other party to do precisely the  same thing. The question ought  never to have been allowed to enter  Domiuion politics and would not hardline so if it had not heen dragged- in  by the opposition oh purpose to inn,'...  political capital. - - .  KEVISION OF THE**VOTERS LIST.  ceived.   It had clso   been-said that  was a sympathiser with   the   Caund.au  Pacific Railway.    He defied any <>i>o ���������'���������  h'iv that where the interests of the C. P.  it. conflicted with those of Kootenay lie  had been found siding with the former.  When the C. P. R. opposed Mr. Corbin  over the buildiug of the Nelson &,' Fort  Sheppard Railway, he fom-lit theC. P. K.  in the railway committee and obtained  the charter for Mr. "Corbin.    In   doii (,'  this moreover he was by no means acting  in his owu interests  becau.se   Oefoie   lii.  euiioiruction of  that railway,  his  hunt.'  on the Columbia were doing n good trade  between Robson  and.the   lower   rivei,  whicli fell  ot! as soon  as  the  liue  was  complete.      He was iiIho 'successful in  obtaining a charter for the lied Mour-  tuiu line,  which again  wns detriment!.I  iu the steamboat interest.  chow's nest pass route.  .The Government had hot lost sight of  the necessity of openiug up the country  by every meaus in its power and had  pledged themselves to lend the C. P. K.  820,000 a mile for the construction of  this road, which would be of the greatest  benefit to Nelson.  CONC-TJSION.  He again pointed out the uncertainty  of the policy of the liberals some of  whom were advocating free trade and  others protection. The speaker was here  asked what liberal had advocated protection. Mr. Mara replied, Mr. Morrison  of New Westminster and hinted that Mr.  Bostock at Kelowua'had done the same.  On the other hand the Conservatives  had a well defined policy that was easily  understood and had brought prosperity  10 Canada. This policy tended to briDg  closer relations with the mother country  by means of preferential trade and per-  iiups might be an important factor iu a  final grand confederation of the Empire  ia which Cauada would occupy so noble  a positiou.  . Mr. Mara who had been listened to  with great atteution then sat down  amidst applause.  QUESTIONS.  Mat Kelly wanted to know if Dan  McGillivray wonld have the contract to  build the Crow's Nest Pass line, to which  Mr.Mara replied, "I hope not."  Mr. Elphinstone asked: . Whereas  foreign governments employ none but  their-owu people on national works. Will  you in the interests of British subjects  introduce a measure giving them the  sole right to employment ou nil works  under the supervisionof tha go verumeiit.  Mr. Elphinstone explained that his  question related to the ��������� Government  works going.ou at Esq.limalt where Ihe  meu got only ������1.50 a day, which was iii t  a living wage, owiug to tne competition  of Swed-3, Italians and others.  Mr. Mara replied that the woiks in  question were.being carried out'by the  Imperial Government and not by the  Dominion. The'; latter had approach od  the home authorities on this very qnesli.n  but had been met by tho reply that tlu-.v  considered it their duly to the taxpayer  to employ the cheapest labor available.  On geueral principles lie agreed with  the questioner namely that none but  British subjects should be employed on  public works.  Asked how protection would benefit  Kooteuay, Mr, Mara replied that in  framing a policy for a huge country like  Canada it was impossible to make oue to  lit every separate part of it." The country  must be considered as a whole. In protecting the farmers the'Kooteuay district  was benefitted by the growth iu its-  neighbourhood of agricultural district  .wheuce supplies for the miners could be  obtained.  .  The meeting then   concluded   with  a  vote of thanks to the chairman.  ver Island with .'{0,000 has .three members. Mr. Buchanan finished aft hi*  call of lime from thi' chairman amid  Inuil appliu^'e. ' *'.-������������������  Mr. S. P.

Mr. McCullum asked a question* relating to school law in the Province of  Ni'wJ.riniswick.  Mr. .Mara���������When . New Brunswick  entered Confederation the. act stated  ���������,is ei-lablis-hed bylaw,' and the New  Brunswick scl'ools were not established  bv law bnt onlv by practice. When  the Manitoba Act was framed ihe  words "by practice" were added to  cover the ground (applause.) Mr.  Buchanan, asked, in 1890 when Mr.  Corbin and his associates^ were, applying for a charter for the Nelson & tort  Sheppard road, and a petition; was  sent by the Robson Government asking the Railway Committee to refuse,  did you say lhat you igreed with the  petition:* - ..     .    -������������������..  Mr. Mara���������I must say I have no  -���������.-collection of any such question being  asked.  Mr. Tuck���������What is your position  regaid to lhe Lardo-Dunc-m River i  propria! ion?    .  Mr. Mara���������Mr. Gamble made an  animation and reported the sc'.lii  feasible, the river could be opened,  about, lfl) miles for two to three thousand dollars. I made application ami it  was placed on the supplinientaiy li���������fc  and no doubt would have, passed. .1 lie  house in which case the work wjnilil  have been done between January.'ami  March*. ...-.-  Mr. Retallack���������I would like to oskMr.  Mara how many meetings of this kiu/l'he  lias lield in llie'last sis years? .. !_.���������'_���������  ' Mr. Mara���������Possibly .a dozen, I "iu;ike  no pretensions as an orator, but am owiil-  iug to attend meetings at anytiini������.';;'niy  constituents desire t-.w should be caijed.  In couclnsiou Mr. Mura explaih.a ,;in  reply to Mr. Buchanan, that, thereibad  been no gerrymandering in this district,  tho representation had now to l-e.|by  population and the new district of.

SuxDAf,' May 21, 1806.  Methodist Church,   Corner Silica  Another point on which he hud been  attacked was the revisiou of the voters  list. Early in the session he pointed out  the peculiar circumstances of tbe district to the government. He explained  how Rossland had grown into a large  place and how Trail und Sandon had  sprung into existence. Tbe population  of the constituency wan always shifting.  He urged on the Govern men t to introduce a measure to permit any elector cf  the YHle-Cariboo constituency to cast a  vote in any district in which he found  himself. Failing that, he had tried to  get power given to the returning-officer  to subdivide a polling division. This  would enable polling places to be estab-  lished'at Rossland, Trail* and Pilot Bay.  The first of these propositions was found  to be impracticable and the second was  defeated by the opposition on the ground  that it facilitated the crime of personation. He bad done all in his power to  remedy the, existing evil which "he felt  practically disfranchised many of the  electors.  PERSONAL . MATTERS.

WILSON.  sm  Mrs. Miller was paring early apples for  sauce. Mr. Miller, with a newspaper  spread on the carpet at his feet, was scraping with u piece of glass an ax handle to  a desired smoothness, while Bessio, the  five-year-old daughter of lho house, stood  with a kitten in her arms watching her  father at his work.  Tlio sitting-room, with its brightly  striped rag carpet, its splint bottomed  chairs, und thc new white curtains at its  windows, was a cheerful looking place,  and its three occupants were a.s comfortable appearing persons as one could wish  to see.  Suddenly Mrs. Milicr, with a half pared  apple iu one hand and holding a knife  threateningly in tlie othor, exclaimed,  "If thero is any tiling in the world I  despise it's a dog in a manger,    so it is!'  Mr. -Miller looked up inquiringly.  "Why Martha," , he said, "what do you  mean?"  "Just what I said," she answered  sharply; "a dog in a manger; I'd like to  know whut elso you'd call a feller that  hangs around a girl kecpin' every other  youn������ man away, and hasn't courage  enough to speak out and���������" Here sho  was interrupted by the opening of the  door near her, which led to the kitchen,  while a clear, sweet voice asked if the  apples were ready.  "Just about," said Mrs. Miller, deftly  finishing 'the last one. and handing the  pan containing them to the owner of the  voice. This was Mrs. Miller's young sister, and a pretty picture she mado with  her sleeves rolled above her elbows, showing her plump, dimpled arms, her curling brown hair pushed buck from her  white forehead and her face rosy with the  , heat. Little drops of perspiration stood  round her lips, and as she wiped them  away with hor blue checked apron, she  said: "I guess I'll make a pic as well as  the sauce; tho men always like pic."  She looked at her sister interrogatively.   .  "Of course, if you want to," said Mrs.  Miller, "but it is so warm to bake and  there's cold bread and lots of cookies. "  "I don't mind tin* heat," the girl said  laughingly as she closed the, door and  went singing merrily back to the kitchen.  "I can't see," said Mr. Miller, "why  you are so anxious to have Lucindu  marry; she's mighty nice to have  around.".  "I'm not anxious," retorted his wife,  who was like an older edition of her  pretty sister, "bnt T do say no man has a  right to go with a girl and keep everybody else away unless he means to marry  her; and I do say it's noting liko .'a dog  in the manger,' for here's Lucinda nearly  twenty-three and0might have had lots of  chances if it hadn't been for him."  Mr. Miller evidently thought silence -tie  better part, for lie niiido no answer, but  scraped away diligently at his ax handle.  Presently he. ran his hand up and down  the surface of tlie wood, saying "I'reckon  that's about right now."  "Let me foci it, pup," said tlie'little  daughter, and she imitated his move-  niencso earnestly that her father laughed. "I (less it's all right, pap," she said,  "it's peffectly slick."  "Conic on then", Bessie," he said, rising  from his chair, "and we will try to finish  the job before supper. "  They left the room together, while Mrs.  ��������� Miller-cleaned np the scraiiinas of hick-  ory and placed tiie chairs against the wall  as vindictively as if the mysterious "dog  in the manger" .'was being handled in thc  process. i  You must riot for ai. instant think that  Mrs. Miller Svas an ill-natured-woman;  for she was not. She dearly loved the  young orphan sister who had been with  ���������ber for years, and really liked young  Stebbins, the neighboring farmer's son'of  whom she had spoken so contemptuously.  But her ambition-had been roused by the  very evident desire of a rising young  physician in tlie vicinity'to visit her sis-  . l_r. She had an idea that a marriage  with a doctor would increasu Luciudu's  prospects of 11 happy.-future, and was vexed that Lucinda did not seem to share her  opinions, but showed a -decided prefer-:  enee for Joe ytobbnis, the aforesaid young  farmer.  Poor Joe !   What anguish he would have  folt if he   had   known   the thoughts Mrs.  oMiller harbored   of   him.    lie was a line,  manly fellow, but   had   such   a   humble \  opinion of hini-clf tliat he never could do  himself justice.    He   truly loved Lucinda  Jlart   and   had     repealed    to   himself   a ;  hundred times the very words   in   which  he would tell of  his love, hut once in her  presence doubts beset him. and one glance-  of   bur'blue   eyes   rendered   him dumb.  Thus he, was  always   at   a   disadvantage  when with her.  As for Lucinda we cannot tell what  ber feeling fur hiin was. She was mis-'  ehicvously kind at one time, and saucily  ' cruel the next. Sin; laughed at him to  hi1* face but, quickly resented any one else  doing so, and invariably defended him  when her sister ridiculed or found fault  witb him.'-  A few days after tlie conversation we,  have recorded between Mr. and Mrs. Miller, - .Ine) in a new buggy and"driving his  favorite horse Prince, drove up to Mr.  Miller's ..j_r.ite for the purpose of taking  Lucinda to a picnic in the neighborhood,  us bad been arranged by themselves tho  Sunday before. From her .window  Lucinda saw him and leaning out slio  'allied to Bessie, who was playing in the.  yard, to "tell Mr. Srebbins she was. not  quite ready but would be in a lew min-  - utes." Bes.-ie ran joyfully out, for she  liked   .Toe. as she always .called him, aud  ��������� after delivering her aunt's   message begged him id take her ''ju.st   a little ride."  "All right," said .loo, good n.-ituredly.  -'Give me your hands." and catching her  up he seated her by his side and droveolT.  Bessie was delighted. __hc chatted gaily  abour. any and everything, while Joe.  iris thoughts intent on what lie wished  to say to Lucinda, was silent. The child  w__i "disturbed     She   did   not  like   this  lileuce. "Joe," ghe said, "what makes  rem so still? Don't you like me?" Then  Defore he could answer she exclaimed,  'Oh ! Joe, do you know what a dog in a  manger is?"  Joe. laughed. "You midget, " he said,  'what put.that in your head?'"'  "Why mamma said she spised 'em;  they was allays round keepin' folks  .way,'' said Bessie. Joe was quick wit-  ted. The blood leaped to his face. "I  _l.sc.rvo it," he thought, but ho said,  'Who was she talking to, Bessie?"  "Why to papa when he mad*   the  new  !ix handle   and 1 helped   him, an'   it's  a  nice   one   too, Joe," said Bessie.     "Joe,  [lo   you   like   aunt,   pap says she's nice,  | tase she makes pic  for   supper,   and  oh,  | Joe, she laughed at   Dr.   Grey, an' xaam-  j ma jess scolded her.''  i    Joe's conscience   pricked  Mm, though  i his heart   gave   a   glad   bound,   and  he  turned Prince around   saying  "I   expect  Aunt Lucinda is  ready now.    Let us see  how fust Prince can go."  Lucindu was at the gate as they drove  up, and Bessie was lifted out laughing  merrily and insisting on kissing Joe  goodby and telling him "not to run off  with Aunt, tause she looked so nice in  her now dress.''  "Nice, thought Joe. "She looks liko  an angel," and such a feeling of un-  worthiness came over him that he scarcely lifted his eyes, and helped the "angel"  into tho buggy so awkwardly that her  dross caught on tlie step and she almost  fell iuto his arms.  She laughed, however, saying, "it  seems I never can get iuto a buggy without trouble. I do wish I was not so  clumsy," and Joe, without a word, seated himself by her side and drove off grim  as a s:atue.  When tbey arrived at the phonic grounds  they found a gay' crowd assembled and  Lucinda, being a universal favorite, was  at once surrounded und hurried off to  join iu a game of croquet., And when  dinner time camo and the baskets were  unpacked it was Lucinda who must superintend the arrangements.  Joe vainly tried to get near her. Dr.  Grey, wus gracefully unconscious of being  in anybody's way, and managed somehow to be of so much assistance in unpacking dishes and rescuing pies and  cakes from - perilous places, that all th*  girls were calling on him for advice and  help. And when dinner was ready __���������  easily succeeded in placing himself at  Luciuda's side, and kept up a constant  stream of laughter and jest. If sometimes Lucinda cast a glance at Joe, who  was heroically devoting himself to an  elderly spinster, he was ignorant of it,  and Miss Golden was so flattered by his  attentions that she whispered to him that  she hud always felt "when congenial  spirits met a slight difference in age  should uot be considered, as the soul,  knowing nothing of time, was always  young." .  Joe assented to the remark as he would  have "assented to anything she said, but  he thought if his soul knew nothing of  time, it was queer it should be so wretchedly tired and anxious for that particular  time to end. But. it ended at last and Joe  was once more iii the buggy with Lucinda  by his side. That "impertinent puppy."  as Joe inwardly called Dr. Grey, had  lingered near her until Joe had gathered  up the reins, when with a bow and smile  he had mounted his own horse and galloped away. Now us they sped over the  prairie Joe was fully determined to tell  his love tale. "If she refuses ine,'"he  thought, "I can't feel much worse and  it's just got to be settled,  was right and I'm a coward, hut I'm in  for it now," and Lucinda, glancing at  his face, was so startled at his determined  look that she exclaimed in a half frightened voice, "Oh, Joe, what is the matter!  You are so pale, axe you sick?"  "No." he said sharply, "I'm not sick,  I���������, say, Lucinda, let's get married,"  and Lucinda said, softly, "Well, Joe.  lot's." In a twinkling Joe's arm .was  around her and a jerk of the line brought  Prince to a walk. "Do you mean , it,  Lucinda?" cried Joe. "Do you love ine  half as well as I do you?" Luoinda pushed him away.  "Of course I mean it," she said, "but  there is a carriage right behind us, for  mercy's sake don't ' lot them pass us."  Joe straightened up and Prince was off  like u dart, while his driver waved his  hand derisively at the occupants'of the  other carriage, now close beside ��������� them,  and shouted, "."No passes on this road. V^  Lucinda leaned buck in the buggy half  laughing, half crying, while Joe drove  Prince'with the air of a hero.  "What do you think your sister will  say to us?" he said presently.  "If she had seen you to-day," said Lucinda, "I expect sho would ask you how  you supposed ������������������ Miss Golden would feel  when she found how basely you had treated  hor."   ,  " "Well, Lucinda," said Joe, whose bash-  fulness had somehow all. left " him,  "Whenever you say Miss Golden, I shall  ask after Dr. Grey's welfare," and then  tho simpletons laughed as if* there had  been something very witty said.  When they drove up to the Miller homestead, Mr. and Mrs. Milicr   wore   in-the  front yard   watching   the   people   going  home from   the   picnic   and   Mr.   Milicr  came, forward at once, extending his hand  to   assist   Lucinda,   but   Joe called out:  ���������"You look after Prince, Miller,   and   I'll  ! seo to Lucinda, she belongs to me now."  ;.  "Is that so?"   said Mr. .Miller.    "Well,  all I can sav is you've  got a nice piece of  property.    What do you say, Murtha?"  Martha"'caught   her  breath* and a fence  post at the . samo   time,   and   before  she. -  could   speak   Lucinda   had   slipped from  Joe's grasp and   was   through   tho   gate-  and in the house.  i Then Mrs. Miller, having recovered hcr-  self, said, "Never mind. Joe, she's air  right,.   But how in   the   world   did   you  ever "  Her husband interrupted her. "Come  in, Joe," he said. "Of course you will  take supper with us."  "Of course," said Mrs. Miller. "You  will have to take 'pot luck,' '-but that's'���������  uo mutter; you're one of the family, now,  I reckon. -Here, Bessie," as the little girl  came running toward them, "come and  kiss your Uncle .Toe."  Bessie did not understand until matters  were explained, and then, while she did  not object to .Ibe.as au uncle, she protested loudly against his taking iicr aunt  away. Joe whispered, "I will give you  tho "nicest little colt, Bessie, for though  nobody knows it," you helped me out of  !ill my trouble," and Bessie, if she was  ignorant of how she had helped, was satisfied.  Mrs. Joe Stebbins tells her husband she  knows no girl over had a proposal like  hers. "Why, Joe," she says, "you  frightened me; your words came like bullets."  "Well," says Joe, "they hit the mark  anyway. Let's have a kiss," and, laughing, Lucinda says, "Let's.

On Monday next the British nation  throughout the world will celebrate  the seventy seventh birthday of Heb  Majesty the Queen. Here in the  Kootenay her loyal subjects have the  additional pleasure of welcoming our  American, cousins at the festivities  that are held in honor of the day,  Whatever differences there may appear to be on the surface between the  two nations, are shown to be but skin  deep by the universal honor and respect in which our gracious Sovereign  is held across the line. Her advanced  age and growing infirmities warn us  that we cannot hope for many more  celebrations of the day, but it is thc  universal wish of all her subjects thai  Heb Majesty will yet be spared to  them for many years to come.  FIRE WARDENS.  We alluded last week to the election  of the Fire Wardens. Their duties are  of the Hist importauce. because thc  safety of a wooden town lies more in  prevention of u tire than in efforts to  extinguish it after it has once broken  out. To the Fire "Wardens belongs  this onerous duty of seeing that everything possible is done to pi event an  outbreak of fire. If that uudesirable  event should occur the duty of dealing  with it passes into the hands of the  Fire Brigade,  A good deal of responsibility.rests on  tbe Fire Wardens. They cannot sit  down and do nothing. They are  selected by their fellow townsmen for  a certain purpose and that does not  admit of indolence. It necessitates  active operations. There need be little  fear of the present Wardens neglecting their trust.  It way be just as well, to point out  their powers, because in course of  their duties they may meet with  hindrance and obstruction.  They are elected under a Provincial  Act of 1888 respecting the prevention  of fires in unincorporated towns and  villages. This Act gives them almost  unlimited powers. They can "visit  and inspect, at all reasonable hours, all  buildings and erections in the towu or  its vicinity." They are empowered  "to direct and regulate * * * thc  position of stoves, fi replaces or fut-  naces, chinaneyt, stovepipes and smoke  ���������stacks' and . t he . removal or change or  alteration of the same or any of them  or the position or condition of *,heni  * * * and further direct that anything shall be done by way of precaution to prevent tire," and "generally  to-take such steps for the prevention  of fire in the town, or to check its  spreading, as they may think fit."  The Act further provides thai  any person refusing to obey their  instructions shall be liable to a fine  of fifty dollars or fourteen days, and  two Justices of the peace may in addition direct that the orders or instructions of the Fire Wardens be  carried out at the expense of the  offender. , It will be seen therefore  that a good deal of power is put into  their hands. To whom much is confided, much is expected. The almost  inevitable fate of all wooden towns  hangs over Nelson, but we believe the  election last week of the Fire Wardens  is thc strongest safeguard that we  ?ould have.  , While we are on this subject it may  be as well to urge on the citizens the  uecessity of.renewing the plant of the  fire brigade. Much of this is old  fashioned and some is worn out. It  ought all to be of the best kind and in  first class order. . Itis very nice to  have baseball clubs and boat clubs,  and brass bands and other luxuries,  but the greatest of luxuries is safety  from iiie.  instance, of late a good deal of space  has been devoted to lhe Queen's draw  ing rooms, the effect of tin* season on  London shopkeepers, the doings of the  young Duke and Duchess of Marlborough. None of these things are of any  importance to Canada and of vety  little anywhere else. But we should  like to have heard of the safety of our  fellow countryin-iU shut up in Buluwayo and of the noble deeds of its  heroic defender.. It could just be  gathered that the. town has b(.*en  relieved, and that ihere has been fighting. That the latter was severe and  called forth the noblest qualities on  the part of the British is to be presumed  from the fact that tha Matabele outnumbered them by about 20 or MO to 1.  The price of Consols apparently an  insignificent detail is however the  measure of the prosperity of thc  British Empire. Its fluctuations from  day to day indicate the gravity or  otherwise of political events.  The fact of the matter is that the  telegrams are prepared in London, uot  for, Canadian but for American readers  whose taste in  news is not at all the  same  as   ours.     The   journals of the  United  States,   most  of   them, while  pandering   to   a   vitiati?d public taste  with elaborate details of the Prince of  Wales   waistcoats    supplies   what it  erroneously believes to be the demand  with all  sorts  of distorted facts and  many lies, pointing out the sins, iniquities, follies and errors of Great Britain  generally,    and   apparently does  all  in its power to ferment that animosity  against England which is supposed to  exist in America/   Meanwhile Canada  is supplied with the same stuff,   which  it  does   not   want  and does not like.  But the greav dailies of Canada are so  callous  to their readers' requirements  and  so penurious in  their enterprise  that  they are   content to receive this  stuff   sheaply   at  second hand rather  than  to provide a first class service of  news of their own..   Take a leading  Australian   paper such  as    the   Melbourne Argus or the Sydney Morning  Herald,  and   it   will   be   seen what a  telegraphic service should be.    It must  be borne in mind that these papers are  published at the extreme distance from  London  and that telegraphic rates to  them are many times what they are  just across the Atlantic between London and  Canada.    With all this talk  about Imperial Federation it would be  a good thing for us ..to begin with a  reliable news service.  like Coventry in England, the business has grown to enormous proportion's and workmen are deserting  other kindn-il trades such as'gun unking .-ind are. being taken on by hundred.- und thousands at the bicycle  work.. The companies that own these  are making hug������ profits and their  shares are quoted at high premiums.:  l-lUI-'I'SSlON.i'L   -AKU-.  GEO. A. U. HALL, M. P., 1). I). S..

In an article on our mining Industry  in the Statistic News-Advertiser, the  Biitish investors are invited to come  and examine for themselves.. We  would further suggest that, whether  they examine or not, they employ  practical mining men in the technical  part of their business. " British Columbia is likely to suffer severely from  companies that do nothing but" boast  and brag and blare and employ managers at high salaries who do not  know a mine from a beer cellar.'  In the same paper the customs returns for the ports of Victoria, Van-  couver. New Westminster and Nanaimo'are given. The Nelson returns are  carefully omitted:  The sum of $750,000 is waiting in  England for the Government of British  Columbia. The money was voted for  the purpose of establishing a colony  of Scotch fishermen on the coast ofthe  province with the view of rL-veloping  the fisheries of this part ot* ihe world.  For some reason or other the scheme  has never yet been carried out, * bnt  the money is still there and. only  awaits a movement, on the part of the  provincial government to be " spent.

The  59 others who were sentenced to two  years imprisonment, ������2000 fine, and three  years banishment, will be let off with  one vears imprisonment.  Five years in a Boer gaol is in itself a  terrible punishment. None o the sanitary rules which make a modern English  or American prison the .healthiest place  in the world, exist. Dirt and filth reign  supreme, and consequently fever riots in  the gaols.
