NEW LOCATIONS.  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  NELSON.  Mr. R. R. Iledley hos takes charge of  tbe Fern mine where the force nt work on  behalf of the bonders will be very much  increased.  There are indications that a good deal  of work will be done, this year on Toad  Mountain and the adjoining hills. The  discoveries made last full about the head  of Eagle Creek will be further exploited.  Nearly all of these finds consisted of free  milling gold quartz and from the fact  that the Poorman has such a satisfactory  ledge in the same locality it may be  hoped tbat some of the newer claims may  be equally fortunate.  Mr. W. D. Cummings who holds the  bond on the Star claim on Toad Mountaiu has got 4 .men commencing'a 100 ft.  tunnel. As the work proceeds tbe force  will be increased. The next payment on  the bond is due on the 1st. of August.  The bonders of the Princess have  brought in a diamond drill from Vancouver. Work will be pushed forward  rapidly on the claim.  Stanley & Gerrard have got their tunnel in 45 feet on the Esperanza and are  still driving, with prospects good.  W. F. McCulloch nnd his partners  have bonded two-thirds of- their claim,  the Golden Eagle to Edward Cordingley,  of Victoria, for 82,400, receiving $1200 in  cash, tbe remainder to be paid on Nov. 1.  The negotiations which have been proceeding for some days over the proposed  purchase of the Noble Five by the  Messrs. Gooderham of Toronto, came to  aconclusion ou Thursday. Unfortunately  the parties were unable to come to mutually agreeable terms and the deal fell  through. Messrs. Blackstock, of Toronto,  and J. ������. Hastings, of Boise, who had  been acting on behalf of the Eastern  capitalists, left yesterday for Rossland.  NAKUSP.  On Satnrday last the towu had two  narrow escapes from fire. About 10 in  the morning the roof of the Madden  House was discovered to be on fire,  caused by the stovepipe. A few pails of  water and an axe soon settled it, leaving  some drenched clothing and a hole in the  roof.  About 4 p.m. a very high wind was  blowing from the south, when a ball of  fire came from the Lelaud House. This  one was also on the roof, caused by a  long stovepipe blowing against the roof  from the outside.*; It was fortunately discovered in, time to prevent its spreading.  Had it once got a good start nothing  could have saved the building aud in  fact the greater part of the town would  have gone as well, with the strong wind.  Many, prospectors are coming in,  reporting the snow too deep to do anything, The season is three weeks later  than last year.  Assessment work is being done on a  good niany claims in Cariboo creek  cemp.  Mr. John Vallance came in last night  from Three Forks en route to Cariboo  creek, to see after a number of claims  in which he is interested there.  A large number of passengers came in  by train yesttrday a number of them  going to Kevelstoke to attend court there  amongst them Mr. Ii. B. K-irr lawyer  from Newc Denver and Mr. M. L. Grim-  mett from Sandon.    ,  - ROSSLAND.  "    KASLO.

The Commander has been converted  into a stock company in Spokane with a  capital of .$500,000. W. J. Harris and  Frank Watson are directors... The pri,-  perty will be systematically worked, it is  said, under the. charge of Superintendent  Moynahan of the Le Roi.  There are 300 tons on the dump of the  Nickel Plate which is expected to average  860 a ton.  The ore coming from the Iron Mask is  said to be the highest grade of any iu  camp.  Work has been resumed on the Crown  Point and also on the Fool Hen a pro:  perty which lies just north of the Pbo_hix  and adjoins the townsite of yKosslaud.  It is the property of the Barnard Syndicate.       *���������   ��������� .  'Dan McGillivray has sold his half  iuterest in the C '& C to Jack O'Leary for  85000 cash.  ������ Mr. ��������� Jclin A. Finch states that on the  Jumbo they have driven 110 feet diagonally across the ledge without finding  the hanging wall. They reckon that this  represents 50 or 60 feet of ore. Of this  about 25 feet goes from 825 to 830 in  gold.  It is reported that His Honor the  LieuL-Govemor will piesently visit  Kossland accompanied by the Hon.  Minister of Mines,  G. A. Kirk of Victoria has bought two  thirds of Palo Alto for $10,000 cash. The  other third is owned by AV. J. Estep and  Ben. C. Nicholls of Spokane.  The North* Star has been bonded to a  Victoria Syndicate represented by W. J.  Lascelles for" 818,000. 82000 was paid  down.  Chas Sweeney, of the Last Chance Mioe  at Wardner, Idaho, has bought the Red  Mountain claim for $16,000 of which  S4(XJ0 was paid in cash f and balance in 30  days.  It is rather dangerous for poor performers to try and impose.upon the Rossland public. Some nigger minstrels from  Spokane gave a i ank performance and in  the middle of the second part were  treated to a dozen eggs, the eggs unfortunately were not half as rotten as the  show. "Still the objecting part of the  audience did the best they could at short  notice.  The amount received on behalf of the  province at the Rossland recording office  for the month of April was 84,838.95.  The wagon road to Trail is iu a frightful condition, principally owing to the  rain. The government should have the  road put iuto good shape as soon as possible. There will be a large traffic between  here and Trail even when the railway is  running.  LOCAL   NEWS.  An election of fire wardens is to be  held at the Courthouse on Tuesday next  at 10 a.m."  Dr. Hall the new resident physician  for .the Nelson Hospital arrived from  Kamloops yesterduy.  Mr. G. V. Holt of the Bank of British  Columbia and Mrs. Croasdaile came back  from California by Monday's train.  On Monday night the local lodge of  Freemasons entertained Grand Master  (of B. C.) Lacy It. Johnson at a supper.  H. T. Ceperley of Vancouver, was at  Nelsou aud Ainsworth adjusting the  losses iu bis companies at the late lire.  The s.s. Kokanee has taken tip the  Nelson's run between here and Kasl..  Her time table will be found in another  column.  Mr. Harry Chapman at one time chief  engineer on the s.s. Ainsworth has uow  beeu appointed chief engineer of the s.s.-  Nakusp.  C. E. Race returned from tbe East on  Monday accompanied by the Hon. J. J.  Kingsmill of Toronto. Both gentlemen  left the sarnie eveuing for the Slocan.  The price paid for the Deer Park estate  consisting of 1800 acres, recently pur  chased from the C.P.R. by Messrs. Topping and Peterson was 81800 or one  dollar per,acre.  It is reported that the McNeil Anthracite Coal Co. of Canmore has secured  the contract for supplying 40,000 tons of  coal to the Trail smelter. Mr. T. Corsou  is the agent of the company in Kooteuay.  The cont ract for the grading and crib-  work on the new railway spur at the  smelter has been let to Andy Dolan  while W. Chisholm has secured the  contract for laying the track and fixing  the scales.  In spite of the unfortunate weather  Trijeman & Co. the Vancouver photographers have had satisfactory patronage.  Their tent is erected just behind the band  stand, and they will be here a few days  more.  The Boat club has collected sufficient  money of the amount promised to build  the boathouse and . the work will be put  io hand at once. The committee is very  wisely getting the money in hand before  letting ecu tracts.  Mr. W. J. D. Dickson has made  arrangements for a daily quotation from  Spokane of all the local mining stocks.  They will be displayed on a bulletin  board at his office in the Bealey block and  at other points in the town.  Capt.. Troup had a quick business trip  on Monday. Leaving Kaslo at 4 a. m., he  arrived at Nelson 8.30 aud*had \% hours  for work, left' at 10 a.m. arrived at Trail.  2 p.m., had 2% hours for work there and  back to Nelson by 9.20 p.m.  The Winnipeg Commercial has it that  Edwin Cummings, hotelkeeper of Kaslo  has been burned out. Loss 85000. No  insurance. Who was it the other day  that said Canada was lacking in writers  of fiction? " Evidently that person had  never heard of the Winnipeg Commercial.  On Thursday last the steamers Alberta aud Kokanee had a race from Kaslo  to Nelson. The Alberta had an hours  start but the new flyer arrived at Nelson  about 10 minutes in front of her. The  Kokanee's time including stoppages at  Ainsworth and Pilot Bay was 2 hours and  55 minutes.  Mr- Beestou, Inspector of the Hudsons  Bay Co., with Mr. J. O. Graham has been  in town during the week. Mi. Chipmau,  commissioner  of the company_who^h������s  recently been in British Columbia was  prevented by a press'of busiuess from  visiting the Kootenay,  An excursion to Balfour on the new  steamer Kokanee is being arranged by  the Ladies Guild of the Church of England. It is proposed to leave Nelson in  the afternoon of Monday 18th and have a  dance and supper at the Outlet Hotel,  returning to Nelson late in the evening.  A novelceremony nt a mine is to take  place today when John Swedborg who is  so wellknown in'Nelaon.will will marry  n lady, who has come out from Sweedeu,  at the Poorman mine. Numerous invitations have been issued by Mr. Daveuport  and tho affair is to be celebrated in proper  style.  The May number of the Cosmopolitan  is as usual splendidly illustrated and full  ot interesting reading matter. Its engravings are works of art aud its attractive  cover, varied each month, should materially aid its sale. The advertisements  are by. no means the least interesting  part and lis specimens of the job printers  art cannot be surpassed.  J. J; Banfield of Vancouver the general  agent for B. C. of National, Norwich,  Union and Phoenix of Hartford, fire  insurance companies, visited Nelson,  Kaslo and Ainsworth. At the latter place  he adjusted the losses in the late fire of  Mr. J. McNeill of the Columbia Hotel  and Mr. Giegerich entirely to the satisfaction of the aissured. W. A. Jowett of  Nelsou .is the local agent for these well  known and reliable companies.  The C. P. R. have instituted a.new  service which will be found extremely \  convenient by the travelling public. ' On j  Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays there i  will be "two trains a day to Robson. Pas-!  sengers going South that is to Trail and |  points down the river will leave at 10 a. i  m. while passengers for the Arrow Lakes j  will not leave until 17 o'clock, in common .  English, 5 p. ni. This will obviate all the i  vexatious delays at Robson about which j  there has been so much complaint. \  We have -received a copy of Kirks map  of the Rossland "mining camp. It covers  an area of over 13 square miles with  Rossland as its centre, and although this  by -no means includes the entire area of  the Trail Creek mining camp it embraces  all the more important and best known  claims. The compilation of a chart like  this represents a great deal of time aud  labor and the result, with its accompanying pamphlet, should be very useful in  giving the public information as to the  relative situation of the mines.  The fourth annual excursion of the  Odd Fellows will take place'on the 25th  inst. to Kaslo. . Tho s.s. Kokanee has  beeu chartered for the purpose.  Everyone wants a new suit of clothes  for the"Queens Birthday and the forthcoming steamer excursions. They will  fiud material to suit tl.'ein at Squires.  Sigus oC the coming election are about.  Hume's Hall has been taken and fitted  up as a committee room by Mr. Bostocks  supporters.-  The diploma for the medal awarded to  Hector Sproat   by 'the Royal   Humane  Society arrived from Euglaud au Wednes  , day.   The riiedal itself is oo its way oat  i its departure being delayed by the uec-  | essary engraving.  Geo. A. B, Hall, formerly of Nana-'  inio is ul the Hotel Phnir. Mr. Hall  left a large practice iu dentistry at Na-  iiiiiiuo to study for a physician unci  surgeon as which of late he has been'  practicing at Kamloops but has left  there and decided to locate here.  DIVIDENDS.  ������150,000 IN SIX MONTHS.  Cam ii McKiimcy Keeps up its "Keiiu-  tat ion.  NEW BUILDINGS,.  Comparisons between Nelson and other  Kooteuay towns, not complimentary to  the capital, are sometimes made. A look  in at Nelson just now by a visitor who  had not been here say for 6 months  would be instructive, To take Baker  street first, there'is the building containing the Nelson Drug Store and W. Grahams Boot Shop. Almost next to it is  the commodious new buildiug just completed by thc Thomson Bros. They will  occupy oue half of it as a wholesale  paper warehouse and they have numerous offers for the other portiou.  Nearly opposito at the corner ofthe  bridge is Mrs. Roberts new building.  Next to the Messrs,. Thomson, "Silver  King" Johnson has commenced the  erection of an extensive addition to his  hotel. Adjoining tho Silver King hotel  on the other side,. the gap that used to  exist is now filled by Buchanan's grocery  store and Duhamel's barber shop. There  is no more building on this side of the  street until Josephine street is reached  for the simple reason that the block is  full. Crossiug Josephine street,.Kauff-  man has obtained a lease of the corner  lot and is about to erect an hotel. Passing along Josephiue street towards the  lake Mrs. McLaughlins new millinery  store is a handsome little building.with  the prettiest frout iu town. It was  designed and built by J. Mowat. At the  other end of -Josephine, street the old  Tecumseh house has had another storey  added and in its new panic aud luxurious  modern internal fittings blossoms out as  the Hotel Crescent.- On Ward Street between Baker aud Victoria Mr. Sherwood  has built two of those small resideuco;  for which there is now so. great a demnud  The handsome now offices designed by  Mr A. E. Hodgins, C. E., aud being built  by McDonald & Carrie for the Columbia  & Kootenay Navigation company, arc  being rapidly pushed ahead. - Further up  at the corner of Stanley aud Victoria  streets George Woods has put up a substantial office. So great is the demand  for office room that H. Selous at the opposite corner has hnd to abandon his  comfortable quarters aud fit up a resi-'  deuce for himself in the basement. At  the West end of Baker street next to the  Bealey Block Mr. W. J. Goepel is putting'  up a building which will contain offices ou  the ground floor and a residence for himself up stairs. The contract is iu the  hands of A. Laurin aud Mr. Hodgins is  the architect of this buildiug as well as  of the new C & K offices. Judging by  the very carefully laid and substantial  foundations Mr. Goepel's' new building  will be of a considerable size. J.ist' at  the back on Victoria street the new-spire  of the Presbyterian Church attracts attention. These are a few' of-the recent  additions to the business part of the town.  We shall devote some space next week" to  the several new residences iu the suburbs.  On Tuesday  last the LeLloi c'ompnuy  declared u dividend of 10 cents a shine..  amounting   to    $50,000.      This   makes  8150,000 paid iu dividcuds in a little over  (i mouths. ' .    ���������  On Wednesday the Cariboo Mining &  Smelting Company declined its ��������� tenth  dividend of two cents a shilre amounting  to 810.000, payable ou the ]_ih. This'  company has paid .$7!),0U(J (including  this dividend) in fourteen months. . For  the information of outside readers, it  may be mention ;d that this company has  nothing-to do with the great hydraulic  company of almost similar name iu the  Cariboo couutry. The Cariboo Mining  & Smelting Company is situated at Camp  McKiuuey on -Boundary Creek. It possesses a free milling quartz claim nnd has  u 10 stamp mill continually at. work.  Tbe returns are (or were recently) about  $18 to the ton. It is decidedly unfortunate that the word Cariboo should be  used so often iu christening mining ���������  claims. It would not be surprising to ���������  see the sor better kuowu hydraiilic-felaiiii  iu the north credited with the satisfactory *  results of the Boundary Creek mine.  The first   freight carried by.the' s.s. ������������������'  Kokauee consisted of a cargo of doors,���������"  sashes and other wood work turned out'  by" the Nelsou Planing Mills. The activity  of the building   trade throughout   the *  district -keeps Mr. Grey and hi������ staff of.  14 meu busy and with the aid of the new.'  and complete   machinery with which the  mill is fitted  they are able to turn out;  their specialities  in first rate'order, and  of a.quality that meets with the approval '  of ail customers.   All the interior fittings  for the new'steamer building at Nakusp  are being manufactured at these' mills.  The firm has just.imported a carload of  British rolled glass of all sizes.  ciiuncir NOTICES.  SCHOOL KEPOItT.  The following is the report of the  Nelson Public School for April, 18.16.

The claims were reported;  to contain a ledge ot free milling gold  quartz, samples from which ussayi-d a.s  high as 26 ounces in gold, and a trace of  silver. The locators of these claims were  W. K. Richmond and Max Heckle'- who  were grub staked by H. Clever and Char-,  ley Faas of New Denver.- Two of these  claims, the Highland Chir-f and the Swiss  have Iseen donded to R. Marpole for  8-5,000. 3400 was paid in cif-h S2.I.00 is  to be paid on July 15th, 810,000 on  October 1st and the balance in a year.

"This will allow a -  profit on ores running ������20 a ton that  could not be marketed before and will  materially increase the output for 1890."   *  A Victoria company with a capital  stock of $500,OfK) has been organized  and incorporated by Capt.

The company is titled the Free-  horn Gold Mining Company and the  stock is in shares of a par value of.Si-  each.  The Mining and Scientific Press says:  In iht'se days of the new 10-million-  ioii-dollar incoi porntion., with fully'  paid stock. th_ii term "fully paid*'is  most of the time a fiction' that has its  only justification-for existance iu ai  legal techaniralitv of sufficient elasticity to covi'i- what is oft times a manifest fraud. The merit of a mining  proposition is evidently in inverse ratio  to the bombast ofthe prospectus, and  under present circumstances the "fully  paid" stock announcement requires  scrutiny on the part of possible investors.

I give Norlnne twenty dollar, but she will not tako  him. 'For Marie,' then I say 'Keep it  ���������nd give to Marie yourself, some day. 1 .  "She smile at me, then she have a little tear in her eye and she nod to where  Bargon stand.' outside, and she/say': 'If  this summer go" wrong, it will kill him.  ��������� He work and work and fret and worry  fpr mt* and Marie, and sometimes he just  ���������it an.1 look at me and say hot _ word.  "1 s.-'.y to her that there will be good  crop. ;*"d next year we will'be ver'  happy.

He say. I must come up. It la' not  damn eaty to go in the summer, when  the mill run night Mid day, but I say I  will go.  "Whon I get up to Bargon's I laugh,  for all the hunder acre Is ver' fine, and  'Bargon stand in the door and stretch out  his hand, and say: 'Baohette, thero is  six hunder' dollar for mo.' I nod my  head, and fetch out a hern, and he have  one, his eyes all bright like a lime kiln.  He it thin and square, and hit beard  grow ver' thick and rough and long, and  hit hands are like planks. Norlnne,'she  is vor' happy, toe, and Marie bite on my  finger, and I give her a angar stick to  suck.  "Blmeby Norlnne tay to ine ver' toft:  ' If a hailstorm or a bot wind come, that  is the end of it all, and of my poor Gal.'  "What I do? I laugh and I k.t.h  Marie under tha anus, and I sit down and  I put him on my foot, and I sing that  damn funny English song���������'Here We Go  to Banbury Cross.' And I say: 'It will  be all as happy at Marie pretty quick.  Bargon he will have six hunder' dollar,  and you a new drassa and a hired girl to  help you.'  "But all the time that day, I think  about a hailstorm or a hot wind whenever  I look out on that hunder acre farm. It  it so beautiful, as you. can guess���������the  w heat, the barley, the corn, tha potatoes,  the turnip, all green like sea water, and  pigeons and'wild ducks flying up and  down, and the horse and the ox standing  in a field ver' oomfer'ble.  "We have good time that day, and go  to bed all happy that night. I get up at  five o'clck, and-1 go out. Bargon stand  there looking out on hia field with the  horse bridle in his hand. 'The air not  feel right,' he say to me. I think tha  same, but I say to him: 'Your head not  leel right���������him too soft.' Ho shake his  head and go down to the field for hit  horse and ox, and hitch ���������'hem up together, and go to work making a road.  "It is about ten o'clock when the damn  thing come. Puff! go a hot splash of air  in my face, and then I know that it is  all up with Gal Bargon. A month later  it is no matter, for the grain is ripe  then, but now, when -it is green, it lt  sure death to it all. I turn sick in my  stomach, and a I turn round and see Nor-  inno stand in the door, all white, and  she make her hand go like that, like she  push back that hot wind.  " 'Where is Gal?' she say. 'I mutt go to  him." No,' 1 say, ' I will fetch him. You  stay with Marie.' Then I go ver' quick  for Gal, and I find him, his hands all  shut like that! and he shake them at tha  sky. and he say not ��������� word, but his face  it go wild, and hit eyes spin round in hit  head. I put my hand on hia arm and  say: Come home, Gal. Come home, and  speak kind to Norlnne and Marie.'  "I can see that hot wind lean down  and twist the. grain about���������a damn devil  thing from the Arzone desert down south.  I take Gal back homo, and wa tit then  all day, and all- tha nex' day and a little  more, and when wa look enough there ia  no grain on that hunder' acre farm���������only  ��������� dry-up prairie, all gray and limp. My  ���������kin it bake, and rough, but when I look  at Gal' Bargon ' I know that his heart Is  dry like a bone, and; as Parpan say that  time, he have a wheel in his head. Norlnne she is quiet, and the. sit with her  hand on his shoulder, and give him  Marie to hold.  '.' Bnt it is no good, lt it all over. So I  say: 'Let us go back to Pontine. What  is the good for to bo rich. Let us be poor  and happy ones more.'  ' ''And Norinne the look glad, and go'  up and say: 'Yes, let us.go back.' But  all atones she sit down with Marie in  her arms and cry���������by gosh! I never see a  woman cry Ilka that.  "So we start back for Pontlac with the  horse and the ox and somo pork and  bread and molass'. But Gal Bargon  never hold up his head, - but go silent,  silent, and he not sleep at night. And one  night he walk away on the prairie, and  whan he came back he have a great pain.  So he lie down, and we tit by bim, and  he die. But once he whisper to me, and  Norlnne not .hear: 'You say you will  marry him, Rachetta?'  And I say 'I will.' j  " 'C'att lt bon Dieu!" he say at the ,  last, but ha tay it with a little laugh. I j  think he have a wheel in hit head. But j  blmeby, yetto'day, Norinne and Marie'  and-I-come-to--Pont������l..____   Tha little chemist's Wife dried her eyes,  ���������nd Medallion said in French: "Poor  Norlnne! Poor Norlnne! And so,  Bachette, you are going to marry Marie,  by aud bye?" There was ��������� quizzical look  in Medallion's eyes.  Kachetto threw up hit chin a little.  "I'm going to marry Norlnne on New  Year's'Day," he said.  " By gosh ! poor Norlnne," said Medallion,- In u queer sort of tone.. "It Is the  way of tha world," he added. "I'll wait  for Marie myself." And lt looks as If he  meant to, for she has" no bettor friend.  And he talks to her much of Bargon, of  which her mother,!* glad, for there is but  one great love .in a woman's life. All  others have different names and meanings.    ......  '   .

There appear* to be no doubt that  there is a -trongly aggiessive -pirit  awakened in England oyer the Transvaal business. If properly sifted down  to cold facts, this feeling it* no doubt  entirely wicked and wrong, but unfortunately public sentiment is _ not  always guided by the strict rules of  abstract morality. ��������� Disraeli once  said that the world is ruled more by  sentiment than reason and sentiment  in this case thinks that the English.  Australians and Americans in the  Transvaal have not been well treated.  Reason says that no one asked them  to go there. They went of their own  accord and ought therefore to put up  with any kind of welcome they might  get. Sentiment replies, that by their  mining operations, by the taxes they  have paid and by the millions they  have brought into the country they  have made the state prosperous, they  have raised it from a poverty stricken  association of semi-civili-ed farmer*  to tbe status of an important country,  and they have built cities where there  were only villages. The South Africa  Republic owes everything to them.  These things are doubtless true, but  they do' not justify Jamibson's raid,  or the plotting of the reform leaders iu  Johannesburg itself. Sentiment is  backed up by a widespread belief that  Germany, is at the root of the trouble  that she is stirring up the Boers againtt  the Bt itith and Americans, and that  the savage Matabele who are lying  round Buluwayo in their thousand.,  waiting for its fall and eager for the  blood and loot of it* devoted inhabitants, are backed up and instigated by  Genpan influence and German power.  This belief U almost groundless. It  has as its sole foundation the ill-advised  telegram sent by the German Emperor  to President Krueger. Sentiment  therefore is at present largely in favor  of a war with the Transvaal, having  for its object the conquest of that  country and its annexation to the  British Empire.  It is asserted, by people who are  acquainted with the South African  affairs that this war has got to come  some day. All through the Cape  Colony and Natal are thousands of the  descendants of the original Dutch  settlers from whom we conquered the  _ countery_in_the early part of the century. They are unfriendly-tcmhe  British and look upon the Transvaal  as the last remaining bit of th.ir own  territory and upon the Boer** as their  compatriots. In the event, of a war  with the latter the entire Dutch population of South Africa would rise  against us. It is estimated that they  could put 30,000 men into lb.-! field.  Germany could hardly come to their  aid because we could prevent her landing a single man ou African soil, aud  from that source the Dutch would  receive only such moral assistance as  is to be got out of a telegram from the  Emperor.  The outcome of _uch a war can  scarcely be debated. It can only end  in one way. It ia true that the Boers  beat the British at Majuba Hill, but  the British were only a small handful  of men sent out by Mb. Gladstone,  much against his will, and on purpose  to be beaten. It is not likely that a  similar policy will be followed agaiu.  But it will be a long and ,.a bloody war  and will deal South Africa a blow  from which-it will take her some years  to recover.  Since the above was written the  news of the" opening of the Boer parliament, called the Volksraad, has  come to hand. In the opening speech  the President alludes to his constant  endeavors to preserve peace and  later on pointedly mentions the ne-"  ��������� gotiations proceeding between the  Transvaal and the Orange Free State  for an offensive and defensive alliance.  It almost reads as if he meant to say  that the days of peace were passed  and the time had arrived for the banding together of all tbe Dutch interests  in South Africa.  ing to cast any reflection* on tbe laws  of Washington or the United States  we have thought it advisable- to  recommend that all mining companies  should be incorporated under our own  Companies Act which is the same as  the Imperial Act of 1862. The provisions of this Act are well known and  prevail throughout the British Dominion?. As. far as possible it protects  the interests both of shareholders andi  creditors by making compulsory the"  publication of such .-affairs of the com-,  dany as relate especially to them. It is  perfectly clear, straightforward aud  easily, understood. It is not so easily.  evaded.  Should any shareholders in bur  mines seek purchasers for their holdings on the London market they will  succeed more easily if the companies  are incorporated undar the British  than under the American law.  This is what the Spokesman Review  has to say of the laws of the State of  Washington, under which most of the  Trail Creekcompaniesareincorporated*  "The Washington state statutes  governing mining incorporations are  vague, lax and unsatisfactory. They'  should be amended in the interest of  the mining industry and investing  'public, and .to this end a representative mining man ought to be elected to  the legislature from this country.  CTuder the present law there is nothing to prevent the incorporation of a  company and the sale of stock against  titleless properties. Mining claims can  be bought upon a narrow .margin,  either in this state or British Columbia  capitalized in any sum and the stock  floated.' Of course it follows that if  the bond is not lifted by the promoter*  the claim or claims revert to the  original owner and the people who  buy stock have nothing to- .show for  their investment save a worthless  piece of paper. Tbis amounts to selling stock in a alight and uncertain  equity, and puts into mining the  extreme measure of hazard."  well that these facts should be known  in the hope that  the custom  may  stopped    before    a   terrible  draws closer attention to it.  accident.-1  A v. iitiT in the Agean evening paper  published in Melbourne devout ly  wishes "that he had never been fool  enough to be tempted to West Australia hy the fairy tales of fortune" There  are hundreds of men in Coolgardie, he  declares, walking about ready to take  work at any price. Provisions and  lodgings are very dear and fever raging. "Strapping.'young fellows are  dying . in groups from typhoid fever,  the hospitals are full, and the victims  of the scourge have to shift as best  they' can, while those who die are left  to crumble to dust by the roadside.  The boor man could not come to a  worse place than Coolgardie for the  country has now passed into the hands  of rich and unscrupulous dabblers in  mining who are not too particular how  lhey make money," This is a pretty  picture to dwell on, What with fever  and drought in West Australia, frost  and starvation in Alaska, savage  natives and inhospitable Boers in  South Africa, laws in Washington, it  seems as if British Columbia has some  advantages after all.

We have unfortunately been unable to obtain the  amounts sent from various Rossland  properties to the smelter at Trail in  time for inclusion in the return. Possibly without it the figures give a  truer estimate of the work of the district during the period as by far the  greater part of the ore is still lying in  the bins at the smelter. The ore  shipped from the Silver King and the  Blue Bell is th* actual amount pufc  through the smelters.  The return aggregating as it does  considerably over a million ��������� dollars  and indicating that we have over forty  shipping mines may be considered as  highly satisfactory. When it is remembered that thev product of the  Trail Smelter will, from now on, have  to be added in with the rest the district may look forward to a very good  showing for 1890 as a whole.  NOTES.  The local papers are confirming the  news of what is called "bonding the  War Eagle" by Mr. Corbin. This  probably means that Mr. Corbin has  suceeded in getting control of a majority of the shares so as to ensure  tbe freightage of the ore for his  railway.  We extract the following paragraph  from the columns of the New-Advertiser, merely suspressing the names.  ..**** has been appointed agent  for the * * * * Mining Co. This  company have the largest body of ore  in'..West.Kootenay, being 70 feet across  all pay ore, Shares will soon be double  as they will soon have many times the  par vale of the stock in sight. They  can be had for the next few days at  $1.10. Only 10,000 remain at that  figure. It is as safe as Government  bonds. Experts sav these shares will  reach $10."  In all probability it is an advertisement though there is nothing to indicate it, * As it stands it is a statement  of fact and an expression of Opinion  backed up by the News-Advertiser, a  journal of some prominence on the  coast. The othography of the paragraph is so atrocious that the staff of  our contemporary may perhaps be  exonerated from any direct blame in  the matter but the editor of that paper  assumes the responsibility of saying  that "shares will soon be double" "It  (sic*) is as safe as Government.bonds"  and then as if ha felt he had shouldered  responsibility enough he writes "ex-  perls say these shares will reach $10."  Who are these "experts"? Paragraphs  of this kind are scarcely.permitted in  the advertisement columns of respectable journals, although the public  know well enough how much weight  to attach to them when they sea them  there. But to have such an item in its  editorial columns and apparently  expressing an editorial opinion is  disgraceful. A paper that countenances such a thing sinks to the lowest  rank of journalism and join$ the swim  in the great sea of periodicals that  respectable people do not care to read.

BT DAVID CHRISTIE MURRAY.  Author   of    "Joseph's    Coat,"    "Ann!  RMhMl," '-Val Strang.," "The Mar-  l.r***a Fool," eta, eto.  (Copyright, 1895.)  VM7 Dearly a quarter of a century ago,  I wai on terras of considerable   intimacy  with an   officer   of the   English   police,  who at this hour  fills   a position of high  trust at Scotland   yard.    At   th. timo of  which I write,   h������  was a sergeant in tlie  force of  a   great provincial  city ; smart,  alert, ambitious, and resolute to get  on.  He and I wore in one or   two big   thing,  together.    I had got wind   of  a gang  of  Russian   forgers   on   one occasion,   and  was playing detective on my own aocount,  when the   sergeant received instructions  to watch the sumo gang. We mot, understood  each   other,   and     combined   our  forces. My silence   as   a  journalist, purchased   his,   as   an officer,   and when at  last we bagged our mon we each   had an  "exclusive."   Wo wore engaged together  In conniving at the escape of as thorough-  puced a swindle; as might havo boon found  in the British dominions.    Thoro  was  a  reason   for   this   connivance which may'  somo day mako the  story worth   telling.  I lout tho sergoant  an   informal aid and  countenance in the capturo of a desperate  defrauder in his bedroom   at tho Queen's  hotol,     and-   narrowly    escaped     being  shot for my pains.    When   I went prowling about the slums of that great provincial city, as I did protty  often,   the   sergeant was my frequent companion.    And  whon at last he gained his heart's desire,  and was promoted  to London, I was the  only porson in whom he confided tho fact  tliat the audacious .capture which secured  his promotion was du e to chance. ,  I have never made   notes of theso mat-,  ters, and the   names   of   the people concerned in this adventure have long  since  slipped my   memory,   but   the facts  are  clear enough. I  In the year 1871, and  long   before  and '  after, a   manufacturing    jeweller,   in   a  large way   of   business,   kept shop in St.  ,  Paul's   Churchyard,   on the right   hand ��������� '  sido as you go westward.     The common- {  er kind of   work   was  done at Birmingham; the better and   more valuable jew-  .   elry was the product of skilled hands employed in a small workshop   at   Clerken-  well.   The private clientelle of the house  was small, but the   business ' transacted  with  "the trade"   was probably as large  as any in London.    Only one commercial  traveller was engaged,   a  Jewish gentleman, a man of exemplary character, and  charming manners,  a  linguist, a musician, a judge of pictures,   a painter,   an  amateur, and   a  finished   expert in precious   stones.    He  had   been   seventeen',  years in the same   service,   and   his employer's trust in  him" was absolute.    He  drew a   liberal   commission,    kept    his  own little family in solid comfort  at his  Brixton home, was  a pillar of his synagogue, a pearl among commercial travelers, and deservedly respected. I never saw  this gentleman,"but I can  draw his portrait, and before I closo  this story I will  tell you why.    He had large,   dark   eyes,  .   which  shone - out of a   sort  of   velvety  idull softness, ' asv a    black heart    cherry  shines when dew  or  min   is ou it.    He  had a well-shapen  aquiline nose, and an  olive skin.   . His lips were   shapely,    but"  redder and'fuller than is   common   with,  men of western type.    He wore, his  hair  cut short, and  his   beard   was   trimmed  Vandyke     fashion.-    The   notable thing  ���������bout hlhi was that hair;   eyebrows   and  ���������beard  were  of a deep ruddy  auburn, a  .. color ��������� handsome   in   itself,   but a  little  startling and   bizzarre   in  a man of  his  complexion.  In the year ; 1870, whilst the sergeant  ���������nd I, unwitting of this gontleman's existence, wore hanging, on the skirts of tho  Russian forger*;-the" commercial traveller had submitted,a scheme to his employer. He-had employed his taste and  leisure la the preparation of a numbor of  designs for .- brooches, bracelots, . rings,  tiaras,'necklets, and pendants, and ho  had designed and drawn with beautiful  delioaey a case in which to display them.  _,He_������Btim,ated__"ho_c_os_t_.of_the_preparation_.  of this tray at about twenty thousand  pounds sterling.andhis proposal was that  the real tray to be manufactured from  his designs should be kept in the show  case at Saint'Paul's   Churchyard whilst  ��������� he should carry round with him a tray of  paste and pinchbeck In illustration of  style and color.  Both trays were made. The roal thing  went into the show case, and thu bogus  article went on tour. The roal tray was  paragraphed in the London and provincial newspapers; htimlrods of fashionablo  neoplo won't to soo it; orders camo iu  briskly. ��������� Tho new designs became a  fashion, and the clever- little Hebrew  gentleman made so good a thing of his  liberal commission that ho was moro than  paid for all his troublo. His employer  was, of course, eminently satisilod on his  own account, but by-and-by disaster tell  upon him.  The   traveller   made   fo*ar  journeys  a  ��������� year, covering tho throe, kingdoms on  each expedition. Ho had startail on the  third round, since the completion of tho  two trays, when tho jeweller by a chance  examination of his treasure discovered  that he was In possession of tho imitations, and that his servant had, by some  queer blunder, walked off with tho real  thing,. To an unlearned eye .the mimic  jewels were exactly like the real, but an  expert was not to be deceived for an instant The two trays had., been set for  comparison side by side outside the sho w  case, and the traveller had made an accidental exchange. "It was a little surprising, but it excited no suspicion. The"  jeweler sent a special messenger down <  to Brixton with a note of explanation,  and the special messenger came back to  say that the gentleman had gone to Birmingham, and the. jeweller went to his  home in the suburbs quite contented and  rat ease. When a servant had been faithful for seventeen years in tilings big and  little, when he has had hundreds and  hundreds of thousands of pounds through  .his hands,' and has nover once been out  in his accounts by a fartninfr, an honest  man Is not likely to grow mistrustful from  so small a. seed as. this. But when no  answer came   from   Birmingham,   wheu  ��������� telegraphic enquiry elicited thu fact that  tho traveller had not been to his customary hotol,when furthor enquiry proved that he had not been heard of in  Manchester," Liverpool, Edinburgh, and,  when after four or. Ave days, his wife,  for the first time since her marriage, was  ���������ignorant of his whereabouts, then things  began to grow uncomfortable, and suspicion began to peer. Not at all in tho  iirwtion  of tho dapper   little   Jewlab.  ! gentleman.    Ho was above suspicion,   at  '��������� the  wife  of   Caesar should   have   been.  Seven teen years of unstained   fidelity are  not to bo  rewarded  so.   But   it   became  clear  that  some  mischief   had   bofallen  him���������there are hundreds of people in tho  world   who   would   do  murder    for  tho  : fiftieth part of such   a booty   as   he car-  ' ried.    His employe   wont mournfully   to  the polico and offered   a  reward  for  the  missing man's discovery.    He was angry  at the mere idea  that   one whom lie had  , trusted so entirely,  and whoso   faithful-  , ness had stood   the   test so   long, had at  I last deceived and robbed him.  Tho honest  hoart would have no commerce with that  fancy.    No.    Tho  poor follow had fallen  ill had tumbled   into some aberration of  tho   mind, which   the   changing   of   the  trays was   the   earliest   sign,    had boon  robbed, drugged,spirited away,murdered.  Tho polico accepted   this   vlow oi   the  case   with    courteous    incredulity    and  plannod and labored on their own lines.  They net-worked   the   country   through  tho telegraph; thoy woke up   every   port  in Great Britain and had every passenger  list examined, they haunted wayside stations and shadowed   the  groat termini;  they  sont   tho  nows   tingling   to  evory  country in Europe   and   to   the   United  States.    Every pawnbroker In Great Britain, every mont de piete'ln Frinco, every  dealer   in   precloiu   metals every   whore  had warning.  Then as his own lucky star ordained,  the sergeant was sont to London on professional affair.*. He called at Scotland  Yard to pay a visit of respect to an old  provincial superior of his own ; partly bocauso a little civility is nover wasted���������  "as you know Mr. Murray"���������partly because he liked the gentleman in question  and partly because ^'out of sight is out of  mind with many people." The late provincial superior was affable to the extent  of a glass of whisky and a cigar; and at  their parting ho confided to the scrgoant's  charge a packet of hand bills, which sot  forth a portrait of the missing gentleman, a full description of his person and  an inventoryof the lost jewels. The sergeant kept one of these for his own private reading, packed the rest in his handbag, and having finished his business by  noon of tlie day following strolled down  to Euston station in time for the two  o'clock northern train.  On the way be encountered an old  friend with whom ho had a glass of  whisky. At the station he encountered  - another old friend���������one of the detectives  on constant duty there���������and with him he  had another glass of whisky. The day  was warm aud heavy, the sergeant had  been seeing "life" in the capital at the  expense of h is nightly rest anu esconscing  himself in one corner of the second-class  smoking apartment, live minutes  before the train's departure he fell asleep.  At Chalk Farm ho was dimly aware  that somebedy got into the carriage and  thon he slept again. He was halfway to  Rugby before ho awoke. His fellow-passenger was seated in the opposite cornor  at the far end of tho compartment and  the sergeant surveyed him unintercstedly  ��������� through scarce-opened eyelids. It was a  Jewish gentloman of a neat and dapper  aspect with coal-black hair,eyebrows and  moustache, and cheeks and chin clean  shaven. He smoked a cigar, and read a  railway novel, but every now and then he  seemed to awake to a sudden interest in  a hat-box which was bestowed in the  light luggage netting overhead, ami at  such moments . he . would screw hiiusolf  round and look ' upward, as if ho had  half feared to find it spirited away.  "Now" said the sergeant In telling mo  the story "it's a curious thing,but this is  what set me thinking. When I was a kid,  aud right on to'when I left home, niy  old mother never let me got to bci! wii_h:  out reading a chapter out'of the bible to  ine. I never.got a bit o' good out of i*i  :as fur������is I remember, but I never hoc no  harm anyway. I hadn't thought of i;ie  words for thc best part of fifteen ye.-uv,  but when that chap had looked at tliat  hat-box maybe a dozen times, they come  into my. head as plain as if a person had  spoke'em in my ear: ".Where thy treasure is there will thy heart be also.'' And  "what havo you got there my friend?" I  says to' myself: "I wonder." By-and-  bye the sergeant had something else to  wonder at; the Jewish gentleman drew  off a well-fitting glove of tan-colored  dogskin and began to finger his .hooks  and chin with a very delicate carefulness.  His face took a cast of anxioty ahd he  drew from his breast pocket a small  li-jTOCcb^ase^iivhich-"cb-Ttaincd a comb  and a mirror. He combed his mustache  and scrutinized it with extraordinary  care. He combed the hair on his forehead  and temples, and scrutinized that with  extraordinary care. Then ho combed his  thick - black eyebrows, -and peered at  them into the mirror as closoly as if ho  had been examining them through a  microscope. Next'he examlnoil his chin  minutely,and seemed dissatisfied. Onco or  ~Tho  *  an-���������    ix* -_*  IS,   -*T__^_������o',5    nSf  game?" The gentloman went back to  the carriage, howevor, in due season and  the sergeant followed. At Birmingham  thoy both alighted, and the gentleman  went to the Queen's hotel. Ho charterd  a bedroom there, and carriod his hat-box  upstairs with his own hands, a porter  following with a portmanteau. In half  an hour lie came dowu again, passed into  Stevenson Squaro and on Into New  Street.  The sergeant took his eonrage into  both hands, and went to the manager.  A Jewish gentleman with a black mustache had taken such and such a number?  Yes. "That," said the sorgoant, producing his hand bill, "is the man." The  manager stared, and thon laughed, No,  he know that man. Ho was a red-haired  follow with a rod beard and moustache.  "Shaved and dyod," said the sergeant  "Begad, " said the manager, 'I believe  you're right." "You know me," said  the sergeant. " Yes, " says trie manager,  naming him. "Vory well. I tako all  tho responsibility of this move. That  man has the stolen jewels in his hat box.  Lot me into his room and we'll soon  seo."  "It   was   a   common   lock to the hat-  box," said the sergoant,   concluding his  story in great excitement.  f"I   bogged   a  hairpin   from    a    chambermaid���������ono  o'  them  thick,   strong hair  pins,' and   the  trick was done in a minute.    Thero   was  the violet-velvet lining of the  jewel case  all torn  out  loose,   and   rolled    Into   a  bundle,   and   insido   it   was   the   whole  twenty-thousand    pounds'   worth.    And  while we   was a-staring   at each   other,  like  a pair of stuckpigs,   back conies his  Nibs, sees mo a-knoeling  over  the  open  hat-box,   whips  out   a    revolver;     and  knocks a hole clean through two sides  of  my new silk hat, and  ruins lt.    Twelve-  and-six it cost me,   and  brand  new   out  of Hyam's shop only   tho   weak   before.  The manager knocks  his arm   np,   and  the next shot goes   into   the celling.    It  was nip and tuck then for a minute, but  we got him down, and I  had 'em on his  wrists in a jiffy.    Seven years  he  got at  the  Old    Bailey,   and   protty   eheap   at  that.    Five hundred  pounds reward is a  good deal to a  poor man   like   me. but a  London chance is more, and that slice o'  luck brought both.  "That's his  Nibs'   portrait; that thoro  big colored photograph over   the mantle-,  shelf.

And, occupied earnestly as ho was in thoso singular  details, the dapper, Jewish gentleman  never forgot tho hat-box for'-: much more  than half  a m in 11 to at a time.  "."Whero thy:troasure is," said tho sergeant, with his heart beating'liko a hammer at his ribs. For he hud begun to  think what an uncommonlyclo.se shave a  d'nrk-haired gentleman liko that must  havo taken, to bo" suro, to have iio sijjn  at all of a beard on cheek-or chin. " For  a man as is naturally -lack" said the observant sergeant, "gets bluo with'close  shaving, don't you notice, sir? and this  chap wasn't a bit bluer ou tho chin  than ho was on tho bridge of the nose.  Dyed his hair he had."  " It occurred to the sorgcant to wake up,  and light a pipe and assume u brisk interest in the landscape. It occurred to him  farther to cross to the othor end of the  compatment for a bettor view 'of the  landscape on that side. He ventured to  remark that it was a.protty country, and  that the young wheat was looking well.  Then ho sauntered back to his own corner, and made believe to doze again���������  with his heart beating more and moro  like a hammer at his ribs, until he wondered that the other man didn't seem to  hear it. For at that nearer view he had  scon what he had fully cxpoctod to see���������  an auburn rime on cheak and chin.name-  ly, and a touch of auburn at the roots of  the carefully, pencilled eyolasnes. And  all the while he was thinking, so he told  mc,"What a stroke of luck! Oh ! What  u stroke of luck! A nd hero's my step, at  last." And yet, he had no authority to  act, and to arrest a man on such a mero  suspicion, and without authority, was  a dangerous thing to do. The sergeant  was mightily tumbled up and down in  his mind, and knew not what to do.  They came to Kuj-by,' and the gentleman got out and ordered a glass of milk  and soda at the refreshment bar. Before  it was served,he bolted back to tho train,  and secured his hat-box. "Nfow.ishe going to slip 08  heror" asked tha sergeant  A Valuable Counterfeit.  "Sometimes," says a Philadelphia barkeeper, "a bad coin isa very good thing to  have. We had a brass ten-cent piece here  for two years that was worth 1 a week  to the bar. I knew the man from whomit  was taken, and, of course, gave lt back,  In change. He was a good customer before, but much better afterwards. Ten  times a week he would come In and either  give me that brass coin' or get it given  to hiui. One day the proprietor looked  through tbe drawor and.finding the bogus  piece, threw it away. Whon I told him  it was worth $50 a year to the house he  kicked himself. We not only lost the.  :oin, but the customer as well. He felt  hurt because I couldn't give him our pet  piece."  Very True.  "What more should woman wantf" lit  asked. "Is not the world at her feet  now?" ,-  "Of course it Is," replied the sharp-n__td  girl. " You do not expect herto w*U_.oj|  hor hands, do your"  Social Equality liHSaiitTTal Tblof.  Equality is such a beautiful thing thM  I wonder, people can ever have any other  ideal. It is the only social joy, the only com*  fort. If you meet an inferior or a superior,  ;, 011 arc; at once wretched. Do you havo  nny pleasure of the man who stands behind your chair at dinner? No morethan  of the man across the table who because ht  is richer or of better family, of of greater  distinction, treats you de kaut en bas.  You spoil the joy of life for your Inferior,  just as your superior spoils the joy of lift  for yon. The sense of inferiority infuriates; the sense of superiority lntoxloates.  The madness is more or less violent,- m  temperament varies; bat in some form It  is felt wherever Inequality Is seen; and  good society, which Always bates a scene,  instinctively does its best to ignort Inequality. Of course it can do this only 09  a very partial and restricted scale, and ot  course the result is an effect of equality,  and not equality itself, or equality merely  for the moment.���������(From "Equality a������ the  Basis of Good Society," by W.D.Howtlls,  in the November Century,  RAYMOND'S SEWING MACHINES.
