BIG DEAL ON CHAMPION CREEK  'In has been known since 1890 that a  great ledge of ore similar to that of Red  Mountain ran through the country between the headwaters of Bear and  Champion creeks. Some claims were  located on this ledge duriug the first  Trail Creek excitement. Afterwards  when Trail Creek had been unanimously  condemned by every expert who ever  visited it they were abandoned. Last  summer when it hud been proved by  dividends that Trail Creek ore would pay.  this ledge was located. Iu all there are  eleven claims on it. two of whicli, the  Black-Hawk and Gladiator, are0now  owned by joint stock companies. The  Jeff "Davis, Stonewall, Fiee Coinage and  Empress were the lirst locations made  last summer and take iu the ground  covered by the old claims. Although the  croppiugs were very large, nnd solid ore  could be found wherever the iron cap  was broken thiough, itwas not generally  believed that the ore was high grade.  Comparatively few tests of it were made  by the locators and although they got  lair returns iu some instances, nothing  like a sample test of it was ever made.  C. F. Caldwell- wrw the first man who  visited ii.u properiy iu the interests of  ont.ide parlies. The result of his examination aud tests proved to him the  existence ot pay o: e in the vein, and he  was certain that-he stood on a valuable  property. The locators were at work on  the property during the greater part of  last winter patiently developing their  prospect, besides doing a considerable  amount of surface work and proving the  existence of a very loug ore chute. ,They  sank a prospect shaft 38 feet ou the foot  wall of the ledge of which the croppiugs  are at least 40 feet wide.  Early in April the property was examined by D. B. Bogle who took general  samples from each opening. In one  open cut a general sample of the ore gave  a return of S40 to the ton iu gold and a  rough sample from the shaft dump gave  $51.40.  There was considerable bargaining and  talking on the part ot both parties, who  were aware of the value of the mine, in  their endeavors to tie it up before its  richness should become known to the  outside world. It was finally secured  under a twenty dav option for a bond by  J. B. McArthur and C. F. Caldwell. A  local syndicate consisting of D. B. Bogle;  -W.-A.-Jowett,-- ��������� B.-McArthur-aud- C.- F.Caldwell, has been organized by Mr.  Bogle to take up the option and this  syndicate has in turn transferred to-Mr.  l5ogle, as representing the Kootenay  Goldfields Syndicate Ltd., of London,  Eug., tbe control of the property. The  mine is now in the hands of a strong company which will spare no efforts to make  it a dividend payer within twelve months.  The credit of the deal is due to Mr. Bogle.  The statement in " Ihe Rossland Prospector to the effect that Mr. Bogle in  this matter was acting for the Lillooet  Fraser River & Cariboo Goldfields Ld.  is uot correct. ������  THE PARIS BELLE CASE.  Judgment for the I'luiiitills.  His Lordship the Chief Justice ban  given judgment with costs in favor of  the plaintiffs in Nelsou & Fort. Sheppard  Railway Co."vs. Nicholas Jerry, Chester  Glass aud tho Paris Belle Gold Miuing  Co. The written judgment is not yet  fully prepared, and consequently could  not be handed down this .morning. In  delivering judgment his lordship said  that iu hia opinion the defence had  wholley failed aud that the plaintiffs  weie entitled to the relief prayed for in  their statement of claim. The result is  that the plaintiffs obtaiu a declaration'  that the location and record of the Pat is  Belle mineral claim by the defendant,  Jerry, is illegal and void, and further  declaration that the plaintiffs are entitled to the exclusive use and possession  of section 35, township 9, Kootenay district subject only to such surface rights,  if any, as may be required by auy person  or persons lawfully engaged in miuing  upon the said lands for the purpose of  getting out of any mineral claim lawfully  located and recorded on the' said lands  the minerals contained in such claim.

Prospectors are getting out. into I he  hills as fast as possible, hut as yet Ihe  snow lie** thickly on the heights.  .  The smelter digested its lirsi inenl of  I0,(K)0 tons on Sunday last. Its shipments uf matte 'luring the lasl wet-It  amounted to 7li Ions, valued at  $17,077.2!) "    '  Ou the Priucess, Messrs Mosher and  Mounce are using tho diamond drill in  prospecling the property. Under the  terms of the bond 82,000 will have to be  paid<m the 1st of July and $18,C0O on  the lOtii.  The mill at the Poorman has been  started for its summer run. It is rumored that this property now in the hands  of private owners will shortly be turned  iuto a company and that its stock will be  put upon the market.  The bond on the Royal Canadian has  beeu taken up aud the claim is now the  property of Mr. Van Houten and his associates. A baud of men will be put ou  aud work directed towards striking the  celebrated Nevada lead. Indications  show that they will not have far to go. '-  Work on the adjoining claim, the Star,  bonded to Mr. Cummings is proceeding  briskly, and there is a general activity  along tliat part of the mountain traversed  b\ the wagon road. Some excellent  specimens are beiug brought down from  the Lucy aud M. A. E. Powys is equally  well pleaded with the aspect of his property further to the west.  The Nelson Saw Mill Company baa  nearly completed its log chute, which  when finished will be au exceedingly durable piece of work. It is over a mile and  a half in length and beads up iuto the  bush a few yards beyond where the Hall  Mines' tramway crosses Give-Out Creek.  There is a quantity of excellent timber in  the immediate neighborhood of this spot  aud the company will be able to get to  work in good earnest when the chute is  finished.  Mr. A. B. Hendryx, of.Pilot Bay was  in town on Friday. He says that the  works at Pilot Bay as well as the Blue  Bell are temporarly shut down to enable certain alterations to be made.  Among other things double boilei  power will be provided. To erect the  necessary buildings the company is  burning its own brick. The Hist kiln  is about ready and il is expected that  about, half a million bricks will be required altogether. "We shall ship no  more bullion" said Mr. Hendryx,  meaning that when work is started  again a refining plant will be ready.  AINSWOKTH.  ���������  T. J.'Lendruni is away on a- visit to  Spokane.  Scott McDonald has gone outside for  a few weeks.  Dr. Hendryx, has been paying our  town a visit, looking over some of his  mining properties here.  Owing to the temporary closing of  Ihe Pilot Bay smelter, the Brittannia  Mining Co. will make a shipment of  concentrates to the smelter at Nelson.  Mr. Dan Clark, ou old timer of this  town went to Spokane lasl week, and  we hear that he is bringing a Mrs.  Clarke back wiih him, all his old  friends will wish him .and his bride  much joy..  G. O. Buchanan, of Ka.lo, was in  town Wednesday looking after his  business and putting in a good word  for Mr, Bostock at the same time.  This is not the first supporter of Mr.  Bostock'that has been in" town either.  !lt"is"tim"e"s"olrT_"bf"MrT"Marii's support-  ers were making a showing here-or  they will b*? late  dry. It is nothing unusual to see a  cavalcade of eight or ten riders gamboling along the streets going to or returning from some of the mines. Ladies arc  plentiful also, and probably enjoy Ihe  mountain ride more than tbe minim.'  inspections of their escorts.   (Tbe above  There is great talk on the streets now  anneut the Mayflower. That the mine is  a good one everybody who has seeu it is  ready to admit and the stocks are moving in consequence. But I cannot understand how some of the recent favorites  are dropping out if view so quickly  simply because a new sensation crops up.  It should put tbe public on their guard  against being let in on some manipulated  stock.   "     ��������� ���������  The weather is fine. warm, with a  strong wiud from the west and the whole  valley is filled with smoke from numerous fires all along the creek and up  amongst the bush on themountrtiu.ide  to the south of the town. No one seems  to be alarmed, but should the wind  change I am thinking there would be  great danger to the bouses in the lower  part of the towu, especially tbe power  house of the electric light company and  the schoolhouse.  ... As the Paris Belle ground adjoins the  Rossland townsite on tbe;. northeast,  where the land is high and dry and comparatively level it will be extremely valuable, and no doubt if the squatters cau  obtain titles to their lots for 850, or even  $1.0, they will have done a good day's  work. Very few lots on Columbia Ave.  can be bought for less than $3000 and  one was sold this week for that sum.  But what about O'FarrelPs pre-emption? He had an idea that between  Corbin and the Paris Belle Co. in the  recent lawsuit, the ground wonld revert  to the government and laid his plans  accordingly. A few weeks ago he staked  off the ground as a pre-emption, and  confidently expected that iu case such an  eveut did happen his claim would - be  recognized as a legal one. I have not  heard how he stands in the case, but that  the ground is covered with squatters is  an actual fact.  There must be alot of people who have  nothing to do. Judging by the crowd of  sightseers who have beeu watching the  tracklaying opeiation all day Thursday  and for several days past, when tbe work  lay on the other side of the valley. But  still large numbers arrive on every stage  to swell the population. The stay of  many of those people will only be temporary, but a large percentage come here  witb a view to investing in niining or to  the establishing of some business.  "  The Trail and Rossland railway now  connects the two towns. Thursday, afternoon tracklaying was completed ns far as  the ravine on Le Roi Avenue, a few yards  east, of Washington street, and almost  directly under the Opera House block.  As 'this"ravine is not yet bridged it is  uot likely that the road will be completed  to tbe mines on Red Mountain for  auother week although it is the general  belief that two days will see the bridge  iu place and the rails over them. There  is yet one more bridge to be built over  Centre Star gulch which will be a much  larger affair than tbe one un Le Roi  Avenue.  WESTERN MINING COMPANIES.  NAKUSI'.  New York, June 2.���������The advance in  silver bullion is attributed to three  causes, buying by Paris for Russian [  account, decreased Leadvillp produc- j  tion and speculative buying of futures  by local interests based professedly on  the attitude of the political factor* regarding free silver. Thc* purchase of  futures on speculative account through  one broker alone were 3/X),000 ounces.  The water is rising rapidly in the lake,  and fears are entertained for the build-  iugs on the lower level of the townsite.  Mr. II. B. Alexander passed through  here on Saturday, on his way to inspect  recent purchases ou Cariboo Creek.  Mr. B. C. Kodd has-bonded the two-  thirds iuterest iu the Promestora mineral  claim, from bis partners. F. H. Bourne  and N. Demers, for $20,000.

ROSSLAND.  From Our own Correspondent.  Jhe roads are now dry and the number  of equestrians is astonishing. All the  stables in the city must be emptied every  The following very interesting letter is  taken from Bradstreets;  Sib���������The peculiar methods of organizing mining companies in Colorado render  theirs tocka curiosity to distant iuvestros.  Not being understood, it is often shunned  even by those who would be willing to  make an investment in mining properties.  .When.the casual, inquirer finds that the,  authorized capitalization ot the uew  companies for 1895 was half a billion, and  that companies which are capitalized for  a million each and call their stock "full-  paid" have to borrow money to pay. their  registration fees with the secretary of  state, he is apt. to tbink that the stock  must be all water, or something yet  more vaporous and unsubstantial. The  local market reports confirm the impression...The exchanges olaini to be wonderfully' careful about listing none but the  "stocks of the best and most prosperous  companies. In fact not a tenth of the  companies organized are ever heard "of on  the -exchanges. Notwithstanding this,  most of the listed stocks sell at only a  few ceuts on the dollar.  The stocks are not, in fact, as dangerous as" they appear at first sight to be,  -.od yet there are weaknesses in the  methods of financing our mining com-  punies'which need to be clearly understood by all who", would handle the  stocks.  The-bugbear of many easterners who  invested iu California and.early Colorado  mining companies is the assessment.   It  was the thumb-screw which unprincipled  majorities used without mercy in dealing  with the small investor     Consequently,  all  tbe  Colorado companies  issue nonassessable stock.      Another  source  of  grave corporate abuses has. been the borrowing, power.   Consequently, the laws  of Colorado with-hold from the directors  of a miniug company the right to mortgage its property, or in any way put a  lieu upon it.    Another   device for protecting- the holder of Colorado mining  stock from exactions consists in issuing  the stock'as "full-paid."   The statutes do j  not provide for this, but a legal fiction \  bas been called in to serve the purpose.;  When a company organizes, all the stock '  ���������usualy   a million or more one dollar'  shares���������is   issued   in   payment   for   a,  mining  claim or claims, which the in-:  corporators, acting as individuals, sell to  themselves, actiug as directois of the new  company.   The claims are"e_timated" to  be worth the par value ot the stock if sued.  The law-provides that stock may be issued in exchange for property bat a fair  valuation, and the courts hold that an;  "honest estimation" oft the value of the  property will not invalidate the transaction'. " The full-paid quality of Colorado  mining stock, therefore, depends on the  visw which the courts may ultimately  take of the ,-l ouesty" ot thc initial cs-  j timate.  j But the new million-dollar company is  ; a pauper so far as ready mouey is con-  1 ceriied. It has changed all its stock for  claims, aud now has not a cent with  which to devilop these claims. Through  anxiety to make the organization power-  li'ss for evil it has been made altogether  impotent. Under theso'circumstances,  the generous vendors of' thc claims - next  | make a present ot a certain proportion  ot tbe stock they have received to the  treasury of the new company. This is  kuowu us treasury stock, and from its  sale the company gets all tbe money for  development work that comes to it from  any source. Unless the claims are  particularly promising, this treasury  stock has to be disposed of for a few  cents a share, and the company consequently secures but very little  mouey . to operate with. If, of the  million shares, two hundred and fifty  thousand have been donated to the treasury, and these are disposed of at 5c. a  share, only $12,500 will be realized..  Many of the companies recently organized  have obtained very muchjess than this,  so little, in fact, that miuing operations  cannot be undertaken or pushed far with  the amount secured, and the companies  perish miserably for lack of funds.  Often the incorporators are not well  informed as to methods of procedure,  und they turn a lot of the stock directly  into the treasury without putting it  through the magic roatine that is supposed to make it full-paid. Treasury stock, under these ciicumstuuces,  brings special liabilities to the purchaser,  but where the right course has beeu  taken it is locally regarded as preferable  to the ether for some occult reason not  easily understood. *"The principal task of  the attorneys employed by the mining  exchanges to scrutinise applications for  listing is to ascertain that the stock has  beeu so issued as to give all of it the full-  paid quality.. There is uo attempt to  deceive anyone by the adoption of the  tortuous methods used in getting a  Colorado mining company into existence,  but it necessitates constant explanations  and constantly provokes adveisc comment. Manifestly the value of the stuck  of such a company as I have described  depends upon two thiugs���������lirst, the  vaiue of the claims acquired, aud, seco d.  the amount realized from the sale of the  treasury stock and the honesty aud in  lelligence with which this i. expended in  development, . For the lirst the opinion  ot a miuiug expert is requisite, and a;, to  the second, oue . must judge from his  knowledge of the men iu control of the  company after he has had access to their  book.1*.  The mechanical guarantees, of the - corporate honesty whichone looks for in thi  statute law of each statu have not been  very well worked out as regards mining  companies in Colorado. The original in  corporators cau control the company for  a year without a meeting of the stock  holders. After that a majority of the  stock can manage things pretty much as  it will. No reports aie required to be  made to any public oflicer. A stockholder has the legal right to inspect the  books, but if an opportunity is de.iied  him, the remedy supplied by the law i.-  dilatory and ineffective. The statutes  give a stockholder no right to inspect the  mine. The courts will accord the right,  but ouly after expensive proceedings, in  which delay is apt to make the final  yictory worthless. It is thus appareut  that it directois or managing majorities  see fit to resort to the well known ineth  ods of wrecking or bleeding a company  it is difficult to prevent corporate rascality.   These.-considerati on s appeal    but  ii.t.le to the mind of the local mining  broker, because be is handling stocks  for the purpose of turning them aL a  profit. A good strike on thc property  of a company, or an adjacent property  or even in the same camp, will send  its stock up irrespective ot" these fine  drawn considerations as-to the security'  <>t* the small investor. The"writers for  the local press on mining topics understand mines, but have thought little  about company organization. Tbe  mining lawyers are interested mainly  in mining law proper, and have considered hardly at all Ihe effect of corporation law upon the willingness of  easterners to invest in mining stocks.  The suggestion thai it would be a good  thing if Colorado were as famous fur  wise laws regulating niining companies as for rich mines is met with a  silence that, indicates ignorance as to  the import of the suggestion.  Local attempt? to give security to stock  investments, provided the properties  owned by the companies are valuable,  have come mainly from J.\\c..conservative  mining exchanges, whicli scrutinize with  a good deal of care the operations of  the   nainel  LOCAL   NEWS.

THE MINER, NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE 6, i  CAPT- SLOPBR���������  rnillji   lixuri  BY JOHN ALBEE..  (Copyright,  1895.)  Tbe .sen lias other wrecks than those of  wood and iron, and none more pitiful than  a sea cnptaiif reduced in liis old age to earn  a scanty livelihood as the janitor of an  apartment house in a great city. There  In* is usually a menial of the most persecuted kind, All mishaps,all inconveniences  are laid at his door: and whether negligent or attentive, he has to suffer from  ihe complaints of the occupants; not now  iind then, but daily, some one has a grievance to which he is obliged to listen, however trivial.  Such a lot was doubly hard on Capt. Ben  Sloper, who for half liis life had been used  to command, not to serve. He began a  sailor's life when a boy on a coasting vessel, und rose gradually through the ranks  of second and first mate to be a captain.  For twenty years he commanded the  schooner Nancy Drew, and had managed  to save enough to buy a small farm in one  of the coast towns of Maine, besides two  or three thousand dollars in cash. AVhen  he was about to retire from the sea he lost  his savings hy the failure of a country  bank where it was invested, and as mis.  fortunes come not singly, the command of  the Nancy Drew was at the same time  taken from him by her owners and given  to a younger, abler man.  He retired to his little, neglected farm  and tried tu get a living from it. His two  daughters had grown and were married to  worthless fellows in thc town. The captain worked hard at, his new employment,  but without experience or skill, and failed  to make the ends meet. It was not long  before his wifo died. Left alone, utterly  discouraged, and now over60 years of age,  he gave up the struggle of trying to live  upon his farm, ottered it for sale and betook himself to Boston- He called upon  the principal owner of his old vessel, the  Nancy Drew, and asked for some employment. On recommendation he obtained  before long the situation of janitor of the  Jack man n Apartment. He knew nothing  of its duties, and had everything to learn.  The elevator, particularly, was a novelty;  he had never seen one before aud it gave  him more concern than anything else in  the apartments. But he mastered its  operation, aud it became the one part of  his work in which he took any interest.  Iu fact, it shortly grew to be his pet and  his pride, as beiug the only thing that reminded liim of old days, of motion of ropes  and the sensation of command. The elevator was of the antiquated, slow kind,  and was the constant joke of the apartment residents. When they ridiculed it  Capt. Sloper came near to profanity, and  an old feeling, as when on the deck of thc  Nancy Drew, almost made him order his  ' passengers to go below. But he was compelled to restrain himself and appear  polite generally. There was, however,  oue old lady, Mine. Snow, about his own  age, who tried his patience beyond endurance. She occupied rooms on the top floor  and was constantly going out and in, and  never failed to prefer some complaint in  regard tothe apartment, or to jibe at the  shaky, lazy elevator.  "It's the best we have, ma'am; there's  the stairs,, if.you aro in a hurry," said the  captain, with spirit.  ��������� "Well, it's the most shiftless old bos:,  I verily lielieve, iu the whole city. 1  should think you'd he ashamed of it, Capt.  Sloper."  "It don't take your breath away, ma'am,  like some of them that run like a ship  afore a gale of wind."  "No,-1 should say uot; but, Capt. Sloper,  it take's away one's time. It's like going  to Europe in a sailing vessel when you  might*- take a steamer."  'Ihis touched the captain on a seusitive  side. He despised steamers, as did all the  old sea dogs of his time.  "That's the best way to g������, after all.  Give me a full-rigged ship, before those  grinding engines and smoky chimneys.  A clean deck and a white sail, what's  prettier?"  "That's just about the idea of the owner  of this apartment, and as for cleanliness,  it's the dirtiest building I ever lived in.  ~I wislryouJwould-be-niore-c-.irefiil,"C-iptr  Sloper, of the halls; and can't you oil  up the machinery or something so this  . shiftless elevator will not shake so and go  faster?"  If there" was one.word more offensive  thau another to the captain, it was "shift-  Jess;" he resented it- almost as if applied  to himself.  "Ma'am, don't call her shiftless; she's  as smart as she's made;-you've done it  twice, and that's twice too often for my  stomach. Take the line yourself and see  if you can make her go any faster."-.  The old lady was tempted to try. trie  put her " hand upon the rope and. at tlie  same instant Capt. Sloper took his oh",  and the elevator began to slide down more  rapidly.  "Hold oil, ma'am, hold her hard, or we  shall bring all up in a heap."  "Oh! oh! Capt. Sloper, I can't;, take it,  do take it, I beg of you!"  "Hold her hard, 1 say, or we shall he  smashed all to flinders."  "Oh! mercy, mercy! It blisters my hands  and my gloves are spoiled!"  "Never mindi ma'am; you wanted to go  fast, and now you've gone," Capt. Sloper  said, as he slowed up. the elevator just before reaching the lirst floor."  "She's got as much go in her as any, but  I'm not goiiig.rogive herallsail and strain  "her  all   to pieces just to let you   and   the  "  rest of them downstairs in three seconds.  Jump out of the window,   ma'am,   next  .  lime you want to get down spry."  Madame Snow.took a slow trip back to  her rooms to put some ointment upou her  raw hands and change her gloves, and  after this experience maintained a haughty  reserve toward the captain and complained  less frequently of the" shiftless elevator.  But the word rankled In Capt. Sloper.'s  memory, aud whenever he had opportunity  to talk with the"apartment people he never  failed to remind them that it was not a lit  term for descent persons to apply to an  elevator. He sat iu it a good deal, .when  not. otherwise employed, and was fre-  ' queutly overheard addressing it in the  same phrases lie was once fond of using  when iii' command of the Nancy Drew.  He always spoke of the elevator as "she",  or "my Nancy." ,     .  . Thus, by a seemingly very trivial object  did his fate become somewhat supportable,  ���������.md it was made entirely so in the third  year of his janitor-hip by two young professional women who took a small apartment on the first floor. One was a physician. Dr. De Moran, the other. Miss Emily  .haw, was a music teacher. Botli were  born and had spent their early lives in a  town by the sea where they had become  familiar with the lives of sailors and all  ibat pertains  to  their  cal'icg.   Indeed.  one of them was the orphan daughter of a  sea captain, and it was a pleasant thing to  them to find that their janitor was an old  sea captain. They soon became acquainted  and fond of him. They humored his foible  in regard to the elevator, which they themselves seldom had occasion to use, and  they delighted in nothing more than his  tales of the sea, recounting his owu adventures, aud others with which his memory was well stored. They were his best  friends in the building, and once saved  liim from dismissal. Capt. Sloper returned  their kindness iu many little ways and  took them under his especial protection.  He watched over their comings and goiug*  like a faithful dog, and if they wero out  in the evening, no matter how late, he sat  up until they were safely in their rooms,  No father, no mother could have been  more attentive to their comfort, tlieir  health or their wants. He treated them  a.s if they were his children; and perhaps  iu the bottom of his heart he had found  the place for them left vacant by his own  two wretched alienated daughters, lie  forecasted thc weather for them, and advised them what thoy must wear, as they  must needs bo out every day, rain or shino.  If he saw them on the sidewalk without  covering for their heads, he would expostulate and order them in; all of which  the young women took in good part, and  usually obeyed his kindly commands.  The captain's life was-now full of iuterest; his step grew lighter, he evcu increased the speed of his elevator a little,  and he seemed to have recovered the  springs of life, once so nearly exhaustad.  No one any,longer insulted his "Nancy"  and complaints were infrequent. Under  the stimulus of his affectionate solicitude  for the two young women, he began' to  take better care of the building and agaia  to feel some self-respect and importance.  How far-reaching is a little human interest in another! What miracles it  works among the humble and the unfortunate 1  Capt. Sloper was growing old, but so  attached to him were the residents of the  Jackmanu Apartments that there was no  thought of his removal. His presence was  indispensable to every one. The children  were devoted to him, constantly followed  him about and filled his elevator when he  had leisure to sit there aud tell them stories of the Nancy Drew, That vessel was  as well known iu the apartments as in her  home ports, and everybody called the elevator "Nancy." The captain at this period  had really more influence' and authority  than ever before iu his life, and was happier. But he kept the warmest, the most  grateful place in his heart for his first two  friends' and protectors. Dr. De Moran  nursed him through a serious illness,  which increased his fondness for her; and  for Emily Shaw, who was always saying  pleasant things to him and doing small  kindnesses, he had the deepest tenderness.  Still there was a dark future in store for  him should, he live much longer and become too old to continue his duties. He  had saved a little. But the farm had been  eaten up by taxes and been sold to pay  them.  As the captain's infirmities increased  upon him, his friends in the apartments  began to discuss some means for hi������ comfortable retirement. Nothing was openly  spoken to him about it.  The bell boy, however, had heard something of it, and said to him one day, "So  Capt. Sloper, you are going to leave us."  The captain made no reply, but his suspicions were ���������.-oused, and it was like a  stab iu'liis heart. From that day he began to decline rapidly and to lose liis  cheerfulness.' Dr. De Moran and Miss  Shaw uoticed it and were more attentive,  than ever to him. They were careful not  to be out late and keep him up, a.s he still  continued to see them safely in their  quarters before "going to bed. One evening as they went out they said to him,  "Now promise, Capt. Sloper, not to sit up.  for us, as we shall not be in until midnight; now remember,"and they bade him  good night. He promised, but as the  evening wore ou he fell asleep sitting in  the elevator. He woke oncej.or twice and  found himself very ill. He tried to let  himself down to the basement, where was  the little den in which he slept; he failed,  and again lost consciousness. It was past  midnight when he aroused himself for the  last time just as the young women entered,  laughing and chatting..  Seeing a light iu the elevator, they went  toward it to   remonstrate with  him.    Ut  was sitting in the corner, breathing heav*  -ily-and-delirious. ; : -^ ���������  "It is so late���������so late���������why don't they  come���������I'm going out with the' tide���������it  Biust be near the ebb," he muttered.  They tried to restore him, one holding  his head, while the "other chafed hi������  hands. He opened his eyes and recognized them.  "It's no use���������it's too late���������too late. I am  going to rest now. You have been so  good to me!" aud "a feeble smile lighted up  his face.  ..Then a vision of his life seemed to pass  before him and he became unconscious of  their presence. His dead wife, his lost  daughters were around him; he murmured  their names. Again he was standing on  the deck of the Nancy Drew; he raised  himself from,the arms of Dr. De Moran us  he whispered, "There's the light! Forward there, boys; get out the anchor���������we  are almost home!" and sank back dead.  Cloatning Mattrom.i.

The f-iirfiil disaster in Victoria  which has sent a thrill of horror ovw  half the continent of North America  loaves one result of the greatest l.t'iie-  lit. Out of evil comes forth good.  Without in anyway referring to legal  proceedings, impending or proceeding,  it is not too much lo say that there is  a general feeling ubout that the accident might have been prevented. The  press of Victoria had again and again  warned the public of it. danger, particularly and generally The Point  Ellic. Bridge and its affairs had often  occupied space in the local columns.  and one paper especially had never  ceased to urge the necessity for civic  reform. There is little doubt that il  the city's affairs were handled in a  proper and businesslike manner, one  of the first cares of the authorities  would be to see that the bridges were  safe.  The citizens of Victoria and inhabitants of the Province generally have  now had it terrible lesson 'of the cons.-  quenves of ca- el.ssness. It behoves us  all to look round and see if there arc  any possible dangers from which forethought and prudence can thoroughly  protect us. W������ in Nelson have one  staring us in the face. Just across the  river ,is a brick building with a white  roof. It contains sufficient powder to  blow Nelson into smithereens. It is  the property of a private company and  yet itJ is allowed to remain there a  constant and continual danger to thc  town. Attention has been drawn to it.  over and over again in theso columns  and elsewhere, with the usual result.  Absolutely no notice is taken of.it.  Some day a bruised and shattered man  will drag his maimed limbs from the  ruins of his house, wherein lie the  silent bodies of wife aud children.  Brushing the clotted hair from his  eyes, he will gaze out over the ruined  city. The once busy thoroughfare will  then be a littered heap of lorn boards  und fallen houtcs. Already lire will  have commenced to destroy the ruins.  Crushed men imprisoned among the  debris will cry aloud, iu their agony as  the terrible fate creeps closer and  closer to them. One thought alone  will course* through every brain. "Had  we only attended to the warning."  ^__ We shall pf,course be told that there  is no danger of an explosion. We  presume that the Nelson powder mag-  . azines has not obtained a special decree  from the powers of nature freeing it  from the causes that have blown up  other magazines, and it is only reasonable to suppose that the people who  handle pow<i. rare notany less free fro 111  carelessness than the rest of tho human  race. Therefore we hold to our opinion  that an explosion isal ways possible. It is  always said that dynamite will burn  ' harmlessly in the open air. Ninety-  niiie" times it, does, but on the hundredth it blows the experiuienior to  pieces.  There are other dangers too. A  wooden-town is always mcnanccd by  lire." At present every man in Nelson  sleeps souikfat night because hu knows  I hat there are two fire wardens who  may be trusted.  There Is too great a tendency in this  country towards the cheap aud nasty  in buying professional or expert aid,  An engineer of ability and reputation'  asks a high fee for his services and lie  is worth it, What you get for nothing  is generally worth the money, and on  '"the tame principle what costs little is  worth little. We knew of a case once  where a Harbor Board having charge  of one' of the most important ports in  the world employed as engineer a  retired carpenter. Everything was in  confusion." The wharves were almost  useless, the Board was in financial  difficulties and ships sought other  havens. Then a change came. The  retired carpenter was sent about his  - business. A first class engineer was  engaged at a high salary. Suddenly,  as if a magican's wand had waved,  everything changed. The wharves  somehow got into good orde.r, the business of ships was facilitated. Tonnage  increased. The Board found itself  oppressed with too much money. They  doubled the engineer's salary and gave  him a bonus. The . prospeiity of the  port increased again, and today if is  one   of the   most: flourishing   in the  world. If the  Government and 01 her  public bodies   of' British    (Jnluinhia  would employ  good men  for Jjrofes-  sional work   instead  of   tinker*   the  Province would be a much better place  to live in.  MINING SUA RES.  It is said that the. gambling ".in mining slocks is slacking pace in Rossland  us well as in other places, and that the  reaction is largely owing lo what the  impers have had to say about the  companies and their met hods of forma*  :inn. This is a result most highly to  be desired. The stocks and shares  of most of the companies are very  dang.roiib things for the outside public  to play Willi. They may be all very  well for people on th'.* spot who  thoroughly understand them and are  in a position to sell out at a moments  notice. But how about the people who  buy (hem at that inauspicious moment. As we mentioned before no  one outside the district ought to have  anything to do with them, There are,  however, many companies whose  shares oiler a fair field for in vestment.  Unfortunately it is extremely difficult  for people not intimately connected  with the country to discriminate  between the two. In another column  will be found a very interesting letter  on Western Mining Companies contributed to Bradstreets. The letter was  oiigiually entitled 'Colorado' Mining  Companies, biit it so exactly fits tin-  case here that we have substituted the  more comprehensive title. A reference  is made in this communication to "the  more conservative mining exchanges  which scrutinize with a good dial of  care the operations of the companies  which they place upon their lists."  We wonld most earnestly draw the  attention of our new local exchange to  this letter and especially to this part of  it. Nothing can tend lo a high state  of future prosperity so inu:h as a careful selection of those properties whicli  are offered to the public. In its efforts  to bring this about Ihe Exchange deserves wid. spread and liberal public  support.  policy on the part of the great, railway  to indentify itself with either party/  The Vice-president under any circin'n-  st.-iiici*.-'could not.own uptoany attempt  to com I roi the votes of the men. And  it would be useless, as the ballot in the  Dominion elections is absolutely secret, and there is no means of knowing  how any man votes unless he chooses  to tell.  It is rumored I hat Mr. Heinze is taking a journey to London with -tn*)  object of raising a loan to construct  the Crows Nest Pass Line. Mr. Heinze  is decidedly one ofthe most pushing  men in British Columbia today, or  perhaps it would be fairer to say that  he seems to have more money at his  back than other people. It certainly  seems a little derogatory to our national character that we should sit  tamely by and _-_ ^our own country  developed hy aliens. Is it that there  is truth yet in Ihe old saying that a  'picphet i s not without honor save in  his own country.' This may account  fornhe great commercial success of  that nation which has no country and  from whom that old proverb originated. To this nation we believe Mr.  Heinxe belongs and it is to be noted  that his compatriots made Johannes-  berg, and own all the best of every th ng.  there.  CKB-I-'IVATK Ol* IMrKOt-'M-'STtt.

OLDE BOWERIE ROADS.
BY PERCIK W.  HART.
(Copyright. 1S0.1.)
More than two cnturies agone.wheii old
Petrus Stuyvesant anil his silver bamleil
wooden leg "ruled tho destinies of New
Amsterdam, tlio'.. wiis a. well-known
place of refreshment in that colonial
town, known "by the worthy burghers
as the WursthauH. It stood upon the east
side of the Old Post or liowuriu road, not
far from the present point, of junction
with Division street.
The then suburban location of .the
Wurstlmus made it anil -its jovial host���
Hans" Von i ..c.hneist���well-known and
patronized by the townsmen and tlieir
families, and on " almost. any summer
evening a full score or moro would "tie
seen sitting around "the three-legged
tables, set out under stately poplar trues,
quailing rich,' home-brewed ale from
quaintly shaped pewter mugs. And even
on -lustrous winter nights, when the
wind swept the snow in circling wreaths,
and the belated wayfarer had much ado
to keop his footing, the ruddy lights and
sound of voices within denoted the popularity of the good cheer of old Hans Von
Schneist.
But a" change came o'er the smiling
features and jocund laugh of the host of
tho Wursthaus when liis only son was
proclaimed an outlaw. S-omo boyish indiscretion of sp.-een had been magnified
hy the heareis, and coining to the ears of
the suspicious old Director-General, had
resulted in the decree. Young Hans had
r.ceived timely warning, however, and
was sup|.osed to have reached the'Swetl-
ish colon v.In safety.
But, strange to relate, the old couple
. took their "bereavement quite placidly
and in a few weeks old Hans was utmost
as smiling as ever, and hisvrouw spun
the wax as steadily as when she bad three
to provide clothing for, instead of
two.
And so several months passed away,
��__i "���'"�� ��7eiii-L_. Tzii^ii Jacob Twlller re
lated tne ioii-wnig vena "53r__S5i�� mo
tho wondering crown, gathered rounutne
central table in the Wursthaus garden:
"I was eel-spearing in the Freshwater
Pond last evening, and by the time the
moon was overhead had filled my creel.
Well saiislied-with my success, and lonit-
ed down with spear, oars and preel, I
started to walk homo. 1 had but passed
the Wursthaus. when just ahoad of me I
spied a tall figure wrapped in a long
gray cloak. Thinking that no one except
toe watch could be abroad at that hour
of the night, except with some evil purpose in view. I suited my pace to his,
meaning to let, him precede me towards
the city wall. Hut scarce had we pro-
g-e-scd'in this manner for a few hundred
yards or so, when the figure turned, and
holding its arms aloft, made menacing
gestures as if forbidding mc to approach.
"Overburdened with my fishing traps,
I felt powerless, and so knelt on the
ground so as to more easily remove the
strap of thc crcnl from off my shoulders.
But as 1 kneeled, the ghost���for such it
surely was���had vanished from sight, and
iho' 1 hunted well about, I could find no
trace, except, mayhap, a sunko,smelling
strongly of sulphur, which I breathed in
my nostrils, as I came near to that part
ot thc ground from which ho had van
i&heil."
Nothing could shake the valiant Jacob's
circumstantial details of the encounter,
and tlio' the town cynic sneered��� the
group gathered closer together around the
central table and made haste home in
good season.
"Within a week Roelpf Jans, the popular
butt and scapegrace, added still more to
tho mysterious tale of his predecessor.
While agreeing with Jacob in tho general
appearand of the gray cloaked figure, he
furnished additional details, by which
it would seem that a long barbed tail was
a feature in the phantom, and that it
walked amidst belching clouds of smoke.
Ami then came the climax. Adam
Roclandscn stated to the captain of tlia
watch that ho had encountered the gray
cloaked phantom���that it came out from
tho Wursthaus, but hastily turned and
re-entered the door, e'er he could summon up courage to advance or retreat.
Here was a pretty condition of affairs !
The habitues of old Hans Von Sehneist's
place quaked in their very shoes at the
bare supposition that thoy had been
drinking the brewings of ono who was
���seemingly in league with the evil one.
What more plausible thau that their host
was an agent to gradually destroy their
integrity, and lead them slowly but
steadily   to eternal damnation.
And so it came to pass that the stout
aid captain of the watch, at the head of
his little squad, came to investigate the
Wursthaus. It was the middle of the
working day, nine o'clock in the morning, in those early rising and retiring
times, when the concourse of citizens
and soldiers were descried by old Hans,
coming along the Boweric Itoad. <>'
. For some reason, however old Hans
did uot come out to the door, to view this
novel appearance and when the captain of
the watch entered the big tap-room' he
found mine host tightening tho hoops on
an enormous butt that stood in the darkest corner. The crowd of sight-seers, at
flrst fearful of forked tongues of ilamo
und other chronicled attributes - of the
evil one, wero timorous of entering the
house. But gathering courage from tho
assembled miltary, and particularly impressed hy the gallant bearing of the
commandant, they gradually inched forward until very soon almost every available space was occupied.  .
"Good morning, Herr'Vou Schneisf, "
spake the captain.
"Good morning to vou, Herr Captain,
and to you soldiers and fellow-citizens, "
answered the sturdy old tavern keeper.
""*V_,_* means this array? Am I licensed
of treason, or aro you merely come to lust
the malt in my brewing:'"
"It is neither of false brewing nor or
treason you are accused, Herr Von
Schneist, nor yet 'of anything coming
within thocivil or military law. Some
thero be who say that you are in league
with the evil oue. Step forward, Adam
Roelardson, and tell your tale again, so
that this worthy man will know our
business."
Then camo shambling forward the pedagogue who, with many pauses and apologetic utterances, spoke as follows:
"You all have heard, and some few
have seen, the gray-cloaked figure that
-walks���thc- Boweric -Koad-at-night-time-
Some there are who say it hath a tail like
unto the ovil one, and divers others aver
that it is surrounded by clouds of rolling
brimstone smoke���"
"Your   tale,   Master    Schoolmaster,"
ijoko the bluff soldier, "your tale." *
''Why,   of  courso," "answerred ho.    ")
como to it. -but every subjoct requires an
introduction. I spent last evening with
John Verlocht up at his grist mill the
other side of Cor 1 ear's Hook, teaching
And explaining'to him the new method
of multiplication. We had scarce haif a
score mugs of ale, and my head was clear
as a bell, when I saw a gray-cloaked
figure hastily entor the door of tho Wursthaus." .    . -
"You will agree, Herr Von S-huei-t,
tiiat it is my bounden duty to search
your premisos," quoth the captain.
"Assuredly, Herr Captain,", ho replied: "but before   you begin I   will  _or\V
".you ana "your .nicn -vn-en o-_uo of my neyr
ale." Without;giving.them time to answer, he bustled towards the big butt "in
the dark corner; and straightway dispensed a generous measure" of the beverage to
them. Not having such high opinions of
the power of his satanic majesty as thc
citizens, they quaffed it down���but pronounced it stale and flat.
Then began a scene of turmoil and confusion enough to make the vrouw.'s heart
break with anguish. ' Hut tho' tho iron-
bound linon chest was turned upside
down, and emptied of its contents in an
unseemly manner, and tho' closets wore
upturned, beds' overthrown, and the
whole house turned out at corners she
nover murmured nor complained.
But nothing was found, and tho' the
tap-room was lightly pusscd over, there
was no place in it that a man could hide
���except possibly the big butt in thc dark,
corner. That, however, was full of ale���
for had they not drank some of -it?
And so tho watch marchedaway empty-
handed, and loft to tho- host and his
vrouw tho task of putting things to
rights.
Thc gray-cloaked domon was seen several times thereafter, hut no .concerted aN'
tempt was made to follow it up. About
two months from the time of the fruitless search, the few faithful adherents of
the "Wursthaus noted that both Hans and
his wife wore very gravo faces. In a few
days they announced that a young traveler from Boston , was dangerously ill in
tho darkened bed-room upstairs, and the
Dutch physician���who lmd but just arrived from Holland���wus sent for. He
came again and again, and the faces of
the worthy couple showed a deep'.' sympathy for the youthful guest. Finally
the doctor came in thc middle of the
night and staid till morning��� but the
soul of his patient lied before the dawn.
Heavy grief o'crhung the VonSchneist
household, and the Wursthaus was closed
till after the funeral. ' Even then old
Hans showod a settled grief in his altered demeanor.
Observant-neighbors noted that the big
butt in the corner was never used after
the soldiers drank from it, and when a
few months had sped, and comparisons
came to be made, it wan found that the
gray-cloaked phantom had nover been
seen since the young stranger was taken
sick. ,,It was also commented upon that
no one came from Boston to inquire about
him. But there was a many .who believed
till their dying day that it was a genuine
ghost that had beon seen by Jacob Twil ���
leret al., gliding along tho Bowcrie Road.
