NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  SMELTER   RETURNS-  HALL MINKS,   [Nolsonl for week  eneliivi  June 13:  !������7 tons of ore producing 78 Ions ot  Matte.  THE ASSTZES.  The summer assizes opened on Monday before Mr. Justice Wnlkein.  The following gentlemen were sworn  in as a Grand Jury: H. E. Croasdaile,  (foreman,)'H. Selous, John Gibson. A.  E. Hodgins, G. "W. Kichurdson, Geo.  R. Kobson, John Keen, T. .1. Lendriini,  T. G. Pioeter, John Hamilton, Frank  Fletcher. John Houston. A. C. Buchanan, John A. Turner. C. M. Cowper-  Coles, and Jus. Anderson.  The calender was a light one there  heing'* onlv four cases. Maurice  O'Connor, "attempted murder. John  Langford attempted murder, E. Morrison aud 11. Cummings conspiracy,  and Stonehonse assault. The Judge-  charge was purely formal.  The Grand Jury found true bills in  every ca'se. .  The foreman Mr. Croasdaile in handing in the bills said that the jury had  no presentment to make, as in the  past presentments had been futile,  and no attention whatever was paid  to them. It would be only .wasting  his Lordships time to ask him to read  them. At. the same time ho handed  ^igned_pe ti t i on- re  in a .numerously   ...���������   ,_._  questing the removal of the powclei  magazine to a position whence the  town would not be endangered.  His Lordship ..agreed with the remarks of the foreman and regretted  exceedingly that he was powerless to  remedy the state of alf airs. As far as  he and his brother judges were concerned, they regularly forwarded the  the presentments to the proper  quarter, viz, the Provincial Secretary,  and that was all they could do. He  thanked the Grand Jury for their at-  tion and discharged them.  ATTEMl-TKD MUKIlKU.  Maurice O'Connor was then put upon his trial for attempting to murder,  Langtree in September last. Mr. J.  II. .Bowes prosecuted on behalf of the  Crown while the prisoner.was defended by Mr. J. Elliot, The case excited  considerable interest at the time, it  occurred and the facts will no doubt be'  fresh in our readers memory. The assault occurred in a cabin some fifteen  miles from Rossland where MacDonald and Mi-hen were*, living.  Langtree arrived during the afternoon  and being very tired turned in.  Shortly afterwards, about -upper time  O'Connor arrived. His condition  made the others think that he was recovering from a big drunk. He was apparently under the delusion, that he  was pursued by people, who were then  outside the shack, and took up an axe  to defend himself. Shortly afterward  going over to the bunk where Lang-  ' tree lay he said "you are the cause of  all this," and before he could be stopped, he hit him two severe blows on  the head with the axe, and then bolted  , from the "cabin. He was arrested next  day. For a long time Langtree's^life  '���������was in danger, and although his bodily  healtk has returned he is a raving  lunatic, a result attributed by medical  evidence to the wound he received  from O'Connor. The defence made no  attempt to deny the assault but relied  on the' plea of" insanity and foi' this  purpose put into the box the prisoners  mother an old Irish lady from Orillia  in Ontario. From her evidence Mrs.  O'Connor appeared to have married'  into a family of lunatics with - the  not surprising result that several of  her own children including the prisoner suffered from a similar malady.  The O'Conner family would appear to  . require a separate asylum entiiely to  themselves. ?  Dr. Syuionds who has practiced as a  .surgeon in the Royal Navy and at one  NELSO-*.  The Hall Mines lias taken over   the  tramway from its builders the California  "Wire Works Co.    Mr. M. S. Davys,   the  companies   mining   superintendent,  has  given his certilicate that all the work  (lone aud material supplied are'satisfactory to him.   Tlie tramway has brought  dowu considerably over 12<KJ0 tons and  recently has averaged 117 tons iu 10 hours.  Mr. E. T. Parsons who  superintended  the construction  and who has become  well and favorably known during his res-  idpnee amongst us will be leaving shortly  r. >:- San Francisco and all his friends will  ' 1 e --nrry io.Iom. him.    It is probiible that  | Mi. Painter will remain for some time in  i the service of the Hall Miues to superiu-  i tend the working of the tramway.  A terrible accident occurred at the  Silver King on Wednesday evening about  0:30,p..m., by..which two. men were injured, one of them to such ao extent that  he is in danger of his life. JohuEde and  Dick Oliver were attempting to draw a  charge from a "missed shot" when the  powder exploded. One of Eile's hands  was torn from his arm, his other arm was  terribly lacerated, one of his legs was  broken aud his skull wns fractured. The  other man, Oliver had some bits of rock  blown into his eyes causing him intense  agony, aud a bad bruise ou his bod y.  Both men are uuder the care of Dr. La-  Bau. Yesterday" afternoon m spite of  appreheusions to the contrary, Ede was  still alive and had a good night. Drawing a chaige is distinctly against the rules  of the mine and these men had been specially ordered by the night foreman Barker, not to attempt to draw this one.  Ede was the original locator of the Cariboo claim at Cariboo.  Some excitement wns caused in the town  early in the week by the reported fiud-  ���������iog-of-Silver-Kiiig-ore-on-tbe-hill-bebind-  the town. Four claims were, located ou  the ledge, the Silver Chief, Silver Crown,  Loudon aud York. The locators being  Messrs. J. H. Duhamel, H. J. ahd R.  Wilson, Cummings - and Blackwood.'  Samples were "brought down for assay,  one going 8 ounces in silver, fifty cents iu  gold and one per cent, of copper. The  other gave 2 3-1 ounces in silver, 21100 in  gold and uo copper, giving a total value  of 85.88. The gangue. is a calcareous  rock. A local assayer gave it as his opinion that there was nothing to warrant the  assertion that the ore was similar lo Silver King. Mr. Mr-Gnuuell of the Dominion Geological Survey said that there was  no reason why Silver King ore should  not bo found theie its the formations were  similar. The vein cm be traced for some  distance and the locators-.intend putting  in a shot today to open it up.  The largest and most enthusiastic political meeting every held in Nelson took  place in the Fire Hall on Mo. day night.  It was the first occasion ou which many  n  of the audience found themselves inside  the enlarged and redecorated hail and  they were most agreeably surprised to  iiud so commodious aud handsome a  building. It is certainly the finest in  Kootenay.  Owing to some delay in the telegraph,  Mr.'Bostocks arrival was not known until  5.30 p.m. and in spite of the difficulty of  summoning a meeting at so short a notice  some 250 people were present. Mr.  invited to be  preseut and it was arianged that each  speaker should be allowed half an hour.  Mr. J. Fred Hume, member Jor the  district iu the Provincial Parliament took  the chair, and on the platform, besides  Mr. Bostock wero Messrs. Ii. B. Kerr,  of New Denver, G. O. Buchanan, of  Kaslo, and E. P. Davis, Oj.C, of Vancouver. Mr. Turner, M.P.P., Premier of  the Province, and Mr. Charles Wilson, Q-  C, of Vancouver, had responded to the  committees invitation to represent the  Mara interest and also hud seats on the  platform.  Mr. Hume shortly introduced Mr.  Bostock who was received with tumultuous applause. Mr. Bostock said that he  regretted that so short a notice had beeu  giveu of the meeting, but owing to the  vast size of the riding aud the occasional  failure of transportation it was impossible  to fix auy dates with certainty. He had  been travelling continuously for 6 weeks  {���������nd he fotfnd it extremely hard to keep  up his communication*.  Wheu the campaign started he had  proposed to his opponent that they  should hold joint meetings but Mr. Mara  not being ready, and the business admitting of no delay he had been forced to go  round the country alone. He., much  regretted this as he thought that it was  fairer and better for the electors in every  way to have both the candidates before  them together and hear them both on the  same subjects. It was entirely untrue  that he was afraid to meet Mr. Mara, and  it was uot owing to him (the speaker)  that the proposed joint meetings fell  through.        -._ ,-  -  -  The main issues of the present election  were undoubtedly the National Policy  and the TariiT.  THE NATIONAL POLICE.  smelters in Southern Kootenay is lhe  direct result of the immediate presence of  suitable ores and other economic reasons  and it is in uo way owing to the policy of  the government. If it was so how does it  happen that under this beneficent rule  the smelters at Revelstoke and Golden  are failures.  MANITOllA     SCHOOLS.  Personally he was sorry that this ques  tion was ever brought into politics at all.  The Conservatives assert that it is owing  to the Liberals that it is so, but it is  difficult to understand this seeiug that i  the Conservatives happened to he in  power when the Remedial order was  passed. Mr. Mara had stated that the  Conservatives had no choice in the  matter, tbey were compelled to bring in  the bill, but if we refer back we find that  uuder the bill of rights tbe people then  living in Manatoba did not make any  arrangements at all for separate schools  They simply got the right to make their  own school arrangements.' The schools  at that time were entirely voluntary and  received no state aid whatever. After  confederation an act was introduced dealing with these schools. The Manitoba  school Act of 1890 came up in the usual  course before the Dominion authorities  for confirmation, and they allowed, it to  go before the courts for decision us to its  constitutionality. The courts decided  in its favor. The only grievance, if there  is anything of the sort, is one that Manitoba cau deal with itself.' The Dominion  has no right to come down and dictate  what is to be done when the people are  perfectly satisfied with the present condition of affairs. The course of the Lib  end party in this matter is clearly laid  dowu. Should they be returned to  power a Commission will be appointed to  go into the whole matter and to ascertain  exactly what the grievance is, if one  exists at alj., No doubt when they come  down to cold: facts it will be found that  the matter .will very easily be rectified.  Personally h_ thought" tbat no religion  whatever should be taught in the schools  (applause) Our British Columbia method  was. eminently satisfactory. All the  children go to one school and grow up us  members of one nation undivided|by tb**.  narrow prejudices - that are fostered  under the system of separate schoi Is.  In the pamphlet to which allusion had  been made ah attempt was made to show  that the Liberals were not a progressive*  party. ..Now there was one line which  everyone wished to see built aud that  was the Crows Nest Pass line, (great ap  planse). The Conservative party say that  the proposal to make a loan to the C.P.R  for the purpose of building this road was  defeated bv Liberal tactics, lt was wonderful to find whut strength the Liberal  party had suddenly gained, according to  the Conservatives, just at the end of the  session, (laughter) There were so many  things that the Conservatives wanted to  do just then which were defeated by the  is an exceedingly popular orator iu this  part was received with great enthusiasm.  Mr. Bostocks friends had been trying for  some time to get someone to oppose them  and he therefor rejoiced at this meeting.  Mr. Mara had disappoiutel him, for all  that the great Slocnu district had seen or  heard of him was the hour or so he spent  at Sandon. He would like to speak of  matters Mr. Wilson knows nothing about.  Mr. Wilson was a man of sense and if ho  had lived for nine years under ;Mr. Mara  he would not be v_ting for that gentleman now.   What had Mr. Mara doue for  IiOCAIj   NEWS.  jcaktsp.  Kroni Our own Correspondent.  The water in the L'ike bus [fallen some  six inches in tne last few days.

Genelle & Co., have just,  completed the placing of another engine  and boiler, to run their planing plant.  Their increasing business has. become too  much for their former machinery.  Mr.   James   McNeil   of   the'   Madden  ���������House was married on Monday last at  Kevelstoke, to "Miss  S. Maunel  also of  Nakusp.   The happy couple returned on  Monday  evenings boat.   A 'number   of  friends were at the wharf to meet them.  j    Mr. Bulger, with a large staff of meu.  , is busv building the transfer barge for the  ] C. & K. S. N.

The boiler for the  | tug is now heie.  |    News comes from Cariboo Creek that  JB.  C.   Itodd.Jwho  recently  bonded  lhe  ��������� Promestura. on Mineral Creek, has struck  ; a six .foot ledge of very  high grade ore.  i He purposes shipping some as soon as he  can obtain ore sacks.    The opening up of  this claim will undoubtedly be  benefit to the camp.  The National Policy was introduced in  1878 with a great flourish of trumpets  aud with promises of speedy and rapid  development of the vast resources of the  Dominion. It had entiiely failed to substantiate those promises, for today we  find the people of Canada leaving the  country in order to fiud elsewhere that  work and occupation which they have a  right to ��������� expect in their own country.  What had the . Conservatives done to  develop either the magnificent agricultural and pastoral lands of the Northwest, or the enormous miueral wealth of  British Columbia? Absolutely nothing.  It is true that they had introduced a  measure to admit such miuing machiuery  as was Lot manufactured in Canada free,  but what benefit bad that done? (Cries  of-noue,���������ucne-at-allr)���������That-is-the only-  thing the conservative Government have  done to help the industry. .The miners  of British Columbia were paying a  high rate of taxation and were getting  nothing in return.for them. The Customs  duties collected at the port of Nelson for  past 8 months amounted to the enormous  sum of Sl.O.C.J which was altogether  out of proportion to the amount paid by  people in other parts of the Dominion. -  The Conservatives assert that the Liberals have uo policy and also that if they  are returned to power they mean to in  troduce Free Trade pure and simple.  This is a mere election cry. The Liberal  policy is plainly set forthiu the "'plat-  : form" adopted by .the convention held at  Ottawa iu 1893. - Mr. Bostock quoted the  second clause of the platform at length  which distinctly states that the tariff is  to be framed uot with a view of protecting the rich manufacturers but on the  necessities of the country. Iu other  words it is to be a tariff for revenue. It  was not the intention of the Liberal  party to rush into free trade in the reckless way their opponents made out. In  their rearrangement of the tariff the  party hoped to reduce the influence of  tlie trusts and monopolies which did bo  much harm in the east. Before Mr.  Foster introduced his Tariff Act of 1894  he visited various sections ot the country  and made an honest endeavor to frame  his bill in such a manner as to help in  its development, but before,_ it could be  passed the Canadian Chamber of Commerce interfered and succeeded in mangling the bill iuto such a shape as to spoil  any good effect it might have had.  . Owing to the way the tariff was framed  it happened.that in many cases the Unties  were higher agaiust Eoglish goods than  against those manufactured in tbe United  States. The tariff actually discriminated  against the mother country instead of  trying to bring our relations closer with  it. The Conservatives "were now talking  about preferential trade which was iu-  .ompatable with the National Policy.  They cannot work the two together, they  must either drop preferential trade and  stick to tbe National Policy or take up  pteferentia! trade and drop the National  Policy. A gla-iug fa nit of the National  Policy was that although" it protected  capitalists and rich manufacturers it  afforded no protection to labor. (Hear,  hear) If one class "was protected, the  other certainly ought to be protected,  also. In the United States they have au  alien contract law and no contractor can  of great j go outside and make contracts for cheap  I labor.   (Hear, hear.)  ns? He described the condition of the  mail service of the country. The mails  were^carried free bv the Kaslo & Slocan  Railway Co., because Mr. Mara had an  interest in it. He wanted all the money  he had for the 1$. C. Express Co.  In spite of the fact that we him iu  tuxes to the Dominion ten times as much  per head as other people in Canada, the  government would not eveu allow us a  county Court Judge.  The Kootenay paid taxes to tbe Dominion amountiug to about $420,0.. aud  about..70,0.!) to the Province .and yet  the latter did much more for us. Mr-  Wilson had asked what the Liberals proposed to do. Well, first they proposed to  turn a corrupt government out 'if oflice  (applause). A government that had been  iu office for 18 yeais was no good (laughter). A result of letting parties succeed  each otlier was that the incomers investigated the proceedings of tlieir predecessors and people were more careful. Another advantage of a change was to bring  good men to the front. Mr. Wilson had  failed to point out the advantages of the  National policy to Kootenay because he  knew perfectly well that it was of no use  whatever. The National policy was high  ly injurious. Among other things the  Pilot Bny Smelter was seriously liandi  capped on account of the enormous duties  it had to pay. It was a significant fact  that although the National policy was  made for the benefit of manufacturers,  most of whom live in Ontario,' Ihe chief  opposition to it comes irom that Province  because Ontario knows only too*well the  damage that arises from the trusts aud  monopolies fostered by it. Although the  National policy aidel the C. P. R , it was  to be noted that the great railway stood  neutral at the present crisis. Among llie  great monopolies the C. P. li. was the  worst and he hoped to see u day when  the railways of Canada, like those of  Australia were nationalized.  Mr. J. H. Turner, Premier of British  Columbia was next called upon, he said  that he had come to Nelson partly ou  private business but more for rest, he  did uot wish to detain them long, but  could not resist the invitation of the committee, to . say a. few words on beliall of  the Conservative candidate  Mr. Mara is I am convinced ������ better  man to repiessnt the district than Mr. Bostock, tor whom however I have the great  sinful tactics of the opposition. As a ; est peasonal respect, from his loug busi-  matter of fact this motion was only put i ness connection he must know what is  on the Order Paper for the 22nd ot April': better for the district than a new-comer  and the House pro ogued on tbe 23rd  Why could not this as well as the Revision of the Voters lists have been introduced earlier in the session. . There was  plenty of time to have passed them both  while individual members of the government were squabbling for power. Had  this been done there might have now  been a prospect of tne immediate commencement of the work. There is no  fear that the Liberal party will be less  willing or less able to aid enterprises of  this  kind.   * They   will   be as quick oi  like Mr. Bostock. and is well known to be  au able man.   Mr. Kerr asked what does  ��������� the N. P. do tor   Kootenay, but as loyal  ! citizens  we shouid consider what is best  j for  the whole of Canada,    In early days  ] iu B.C. we had free trade almost and we  1 found that after we had a duty of 10 per  cant business improved, the duties were  increased  to   17>_   per  cent ii-hI higher  nutil as at present and as a business man  1 have never found   the duties   a hiud  ranee to business.

His time was now up, and although  there were more subjects on which he  would like to have touched he must not  trespass on the limits assigned. He  thanked th1* peeting most cordially for,  the reception they had given him and  for the attention they had lent to his  remarks.  Mr. Bostock then sat down amid loud  and prolonged applause and cheers,  Mr. Charles Wilson, Q. C, ot Vancouver, followed on the Government side.  He referred to the fact that he cast his  first vote iu this country at Trail 35 years  ago and might therefore be entitled to  consider himself a pioneer of Kootenay.

Mr. E. P.

The present B. C. members in the Dominion House never did anything for the  districts they ^represented and were  known at Ottawa as the silent six. Mr.  Joseph Martin did more for, Hritisli Columbia than her own niembei-s had done  in five years. The principal industries  ot B. C. are shipping, lumber, fishing  and mining.

"What Uo you  was tha  reply.  BY CHARLES LOTIN HILDTiETH.  Copyright 189,").  How beautiful and stately she was,  and how cold and proud! Less like a  new wedded bride coming home to her  husband's houso than a queen making  progress to the throno; calmly and  haughtily surveying hor domains,and receiving the homage of her subjects with  disdainful indifference. So Godfrey Lut-  trell's wife rode up the broad path between the hawthorn hedges, scarce bending her regul head to tlie salutations of  the gathered farmhands and indoor servants,  Geoffrey Luttrell lovod liis beautiful  wife, as, I fancy, few women have been  loved. Loved, do I say? He worshipped  her. Body, mind und soul were all hers.  He was her slave. He lived for her as  an artist lives for his art. He would  have died for her, as a martyr dies for  his faith. True love is very humble, it  asks little and gives much���������Geoffrey Luttrell gave all and asked nothing.  From my post of observation behind  the lilacs. I watched her face, and my  heart ached for my friend���������lor Geoffrey  and I hud been college-mate, and lifelong companions���������as I studied those cold,  rigid, perfect features. "There is a  tragedy  somewhere    iu   that     woman's  ,   life," I muttered   to myself.    "She   has  ' suffered awfully, and has battled with  her suffering and conquered it. But in  the struggle she has lost peace of mind,  hope, faith, and the power to love. Sho  is a block of ice, carved into the shape of  a beautiful creature incapable of emotion. "  "We were graduated together. I, having  neither means or' prospects, Gooff re y had  made me his agent and an Inmate of <his  " house. The young wife on all occasions  greeted me with a frigid distance, intended to keep ine in my place as a hireling,  though Geoffrey, like the dear fellow  that lie was. never altered his demeanor  toward me. Notwithstanding the fact  that I was allowed to sit at the table,  and that my friend conversed with mo as  genially as he had always done. I was  made to feel that I was a iiiunial. and  only admitted to the meal on sufferance.  Mrs. Luttrell did not like me because I was  not sufficiently submissive, and, perhaps,  also because she saw that I  was inclined  ' to study her character more closely than  suited her wishes. I often wondered why  she did not exert her influence to have  me dismissed. ; Good and loyal friend as  he was to me, Geoffrey could not have  relisted her will. But, for some reason,  she did not put forth her power against  me.' And in that, us in some other circumstances,! detected the element of fear.  But of what could she have been afraid?  What possible injury could I have done  her in thc way of reprisal ? None the  less I could see that she fcaTcd mc. Thc  problem occupied many of my spare  hours, but I could not solve it.  One morning, at about five o'clock���������a  few minutes before sunrise, at that, season of the year���������I had taken a seat upon  a wooden bench, fronting the bed of roses  which were Mrs. Luttrell's especial  favorites.    I had *ead but a; dozen   linos  ���������  of my book, when glancing over its top I  -was astonished ���������to -t>ee-a-sinall-^child,-a  little creature1 just able' to.toddle,   moving from one roso bush to another, drawing down the blossoms and   smelling tit  ' them,and clapping its tiny palms together as  if   infi the.eut.tacy of infantine dc-  1 ���������������������������������������.'���������  Where had I seen the likeness of that  baby's face before? I surely recognized  .that small aquiline outline, with the  proud downward curve of the soft lips. But  puzzle as I might, I could not place the  resemblance lam not fond of children  in general, but. tho little darling so mov-  - ed my heart- that  1   laid   hy my   book.  - and got up to no and make friends with  It. It paid no attention to my call, but  moved on to the end of the alloy.      1 lul-  ." lowed, hut when 1 turned thu corner,  lt was nowhere to bo seen. J searched  behind thc rose hedge, and all about the  grounds without success. The manikin  had disappeared. I returned to my seat  and my hook to revolve the circumstances  lu my mind without coming to any satisfactory conclusion.  I said"' nothing; either to Geoffrey or  his wife, about the baby visitor tothe  ' rose gsirden. . It -was not-worth while,  besides I was not encouraged to talk at  the table. Mrs. Luttrell found means of  silencing mc. if I ventured to start a subject of conversation���������a sarcastic remark,  or a cold intiinutlc:* that my remarks  were not in order, sufficed to close "'my  lips, and to warn me..that 1 was simply  - tolerated in that house, und might ho  banished at any moment Bitter is tho  dependant's bread ;tcrribly bitter did that  proud woman render mine, while I dwelt,  beneath her husband's  roof.    .  The next mornlug ut-thc same hour, I  was in my accustomed seat iu tlie garden.  Some ten minutes after I had settled  myself, and had got interested in my  book, a slight sound caused mc to raise  my eyes, and there again was the child,  - wandering along the rose hedge drawing  down tho blossoms to smell them, and  clapping its tiny, hands in glee.  This time I called to 'it., gently, before-  leaving my seat It-gave me no heed,and  appeared not to hear my voice. It went  on smelling at the flowers, and clapping  its hands, to the end of the hedge. Then  I rose anil cautiously "followed it. It  . had paused before a large bush covered  with a profusion of fragrant white blossoms. It, had exended its chubby arms  .. and'.gathured to its breast a.number of  the rose-laden branches, uttering a sweet  gurgle of laughter. I came .witliin. a  pace of it, aud had stretched, out my  hand to grasp it, when���������how., or When*  I could not guess, without the slightest  intimation���������it was jroue! Gone, as utter-  \r, as swiftly and   as silently as if it had  melted into the morning air. I hurried  around the corner of the hedge, looked up  and down the path, I peered beneath^the  branches��������� all to no avail. The child  had disappeared.  I returned to   the house iu   a  reflective  mood.    1 mut ono of tho   upper maids in  tho courtyard, and it   occurred   to mo to  question her.  !    "Whose child is lt that  wanders about  j the grounds so early in tho morning?"  j    Thu girl's ruddy cheeks  turned   white  und her lipu trombled.  "Have y.u seen it, too,  "Seen   what?" I asked,  mean?"  "The 'Flower Baby,' "  "Why, " said I. "I havo certainly mot a  child among tho roso trees.      A beautiful  little  creature,   which   I   suppose   must  have escaped from   its   nurse  in some of  thu neighboring   dwellings,    and   found  its way into our placo. "  The girl shook her head gravely.  "You will laugh  at   me,   sir,"     sho  said, "but that child belongs to no house  in the neighborhood.    Itis���������"   she   hesitated, and looked at mo with a  troubled  air.  "Woll." said I, "what is it, then?"  "A ghost!"  "A ghost!" I repeated. "Did you ever  hear of the ghost of a baby that haunted  a garden in broad daylight?" ,  "No," replied tho girl. "I don't know  that 1 ever did. But lot me ask you, sir;  wore you ever able to como near that  child?"  "I admit that you arc right," I said.  "But that is no evidence."  "Will you let me ask you something  else?" The girl spoke iu an undertone  and glanced furtively about her. "Did  you notico a resomblauce?"  I  could   not suppress a   start.    "What  do you refer to?" I asked, coldly.  "To   my   lady,*'   whispered   the  girl.  "If that  were  ureal   living   child,   I  should say it was���������"  "I should advise you to say nothing at  all," 1 interrupted, sharply, "and that  you had better keep your vagaries to  yourself."  But none the less tbe servant was  right; that baby face was the face of Mrs.  Geoffrey Luttrell. How, or why it  should be so, was the wildest enigma to  me. But with that certainty upon me, I  went in to dinner, pondering fathoms  deop on a problem to which I could imagine no solution. Perhaps my. silence,  perhaps something in my face which I  could not hide, perhaps mere wauton  hutred of me, excited Mrs. Luttrell beyond  her usual insolence. At all events, she  irritated me intolerably. Her sneers  would have stung the pride of a milder  man than I' am. I had borne her perdition mutely for a considerable time, for  Geoffrey's sake���������but I saw how wretched  he wus betwuoa his friendship for me and  his lovo for his wife���������and what the ond  must be was perfectly evident. I must  take my departure.  I made the excuse of an engagement  in town, und I saw that my decision relieved Geoffrey. He was glad to be rid  of me. With a swelling heart, , I bade  him goodby, intending to leave early in  the morning.  "Shortly after dawn, I was up and packed my portmanteau. Having two hours  to spare to train time, I went down upon  the porch.  I hud no more than  closed the door behind me,   than   I   beheld in the path bofore the roso garden, tho "Flower Baby. "  While 1 wus watching-, thu   child, and resolving  how  I  should   intercept it,   tho  door   opened   behind  me,   and,   turning  about, I was amazed  to.__.see at my oibow  Mrs. Geoffrey Luttrell I  I     "I  have .-heard    about     this���������'Flower  Baby,"   do they call it?" she said  coldly,  "and I havo come to see it   for   myself."  i    1   wus   amazed, nut I had present:,   of  1 mind to   offer   her my. arm.    "Please to  ' step down with mc to the  roso   garden,"  I replied, "und I doubt not your curiosity will be satisfied."  |      She  accepted   my  escort, and walked  ! down the alley.    "There  it   is,"   said I.  I "Somo of your servants call it   a   ghost.  I Perhaps you   may  be  able  to  prove its  : materiality."  I    "My words were interruped by the wildest, bitterest cry  of  agony I   have  ever  heard.  I    "My child! My baby! Come back from  tho dead to reproach  me!   My boy!    My  boy!"  -i���������-The-proud-woman���������had���������thrown -herself-  upon her knees   upon  the   gravel  walk,  and  stretched   out her arms imploringly  ' toward the infant, which was still.smelling at,   the   roses,   and   clapping its tiny  ' palms without heeding  the  impassioned  j cries.  1    "What is this?"   exclaimed a.terrified  voice behind  us, and  Geoffrey ��������� Luttrell,  half-dressed, hastened  to his wife's side.  |    "See, sec 1" shrieked thc wretched wow-  an, pointing to the child, which was still  going on  with   its  employment, utterly  i oblivious   of our  presence.    "It was my  i child.    When   I   was   very young I married a common man.   a  low wretch .who  ' degraded and abused mc.      He died, and  I wished to be free from  all   association,  all remembrunco of him. - 1   did   not destroy  our child���������ho, oh, no.    But I gave  it in charge of those  who"���������sho bent hor  ' regal-head to the  very   dust���������"whoso ill-  treatment   killed   it    Oh,   God!   how  I  have suffered 1    If I could  take  my'baby  and go away   somewhere   to   cxpiat-i my  sin!   Oh,   God!  if   my  little   one could  Hut jiivu mo one kiss ol" forgiveness!���������"  She paused suddenly, and we stood  breathless; for the "Flower Baby" camo  toward tho wretched mother, laid a rose,  which it had plucked, upon her bosom,  bunt forward and pressed its lips to her  forehead, aud���������rwiis"gone.  Geoffrey Luttrell raised his eyes solemn -  ly to heaven   "your sin has been great,".  ' he said, "but.us it has been forgiven you,  even so do I forgive you freely iind fully.

The remarks made by the Foreman  of the Grand Jury on Monday last  were very much to the point. lie  said that the Grand Jury had decided  lo make no presentment because  experience had taught them that it  was perfectly futile to do so and that  it would only he a waste of the Judge's  time to read theni. There was no  intention whatever to impute n failure  of attention on the part of Hkh 'Majesty's Judges. It is perfectly well  understood that all they have to do  with a presentment is to send it to  what is facetiously called "the proper  quarter." This proper quarter is the  Provincial Secretary, and the act ion  of the Grand Jury on Monday is a direct insinuation of a failure on the pari  of that functionaly to attend to his  duties While possibly not entirely  free from blame in the matter theie is  ���������plenty to be said on his behalf. The  appeal to a Grand Jury is a relic ol  feudalism, or rather of that time when  the Panel was composed solely of the  great and powerful lords of the soil in  Great Britain. To disregard their  presentment was a very different  thing from pigeon-holing the suggestions of a modern Grand Jury in  British Columbia. We think we are  correct in stilting that the custom ot  milking presentments only lingers ir  very few places. Grand Juries nowadays go through the indictments and  bring in their bills.or no bills, and then  hurry off about their own altairs. The  growth of civilization has done away  with the necessity of presentments.  Bit by bit the British Constitution has  been brought into such a condition  that.there can be found provisions in it  for remedying almost every abuse.  But if one exists that cannot be set  right by process of law or any other  channel, there is a distinct method  provided and allowed for restitution,  and that is by petition to Parliament.  This is one of the most cherished and  valuable rights of British subjects. It  is open alike to the most poweiful corporations, the most numerous majorities, and the humblest individual. Not  is it unlikely that the latter will getthe  best hearing. But it is open and available only when there is absolutely no  other course by which the desired  ���������result-may-b.-obiained ���������_.__,   The petition for the removal of the  powder magazine is one that would  properly be addressed to Parliament.  There it would not fall into the hands  of an individual, member of the Government, but would be considered by a  select committee, appointed by the  House for that purpose, and be. by  tbem brought before the- House for  decision and order. Its chances ol  . snecefs would be greater on the Table  of the House than in the ollice of a  Minister.  For these reasons"-the Provincial  Secretary may possibly be excused for  having paid little attention to the  appeals of Grand Juries.  Several persons accused of various  olTences, have had so little belief in  lheir own innocence, that they have  taken advantage of the generosity of  ihe law and skipped their bail. The  methods of a British law court.are  somewhat too searching, and retribution follows too certainly on the heels  of justice to suit lhe tender consciences  of these malefactors. The air of the  United Slates is freer for these gentry  than that of Canada. Here we have  a habit of administering it strained  through iron bars. Although the  facility with which criminals can  escape prevents them meeting with  the just punishment, which their offences deserve, it relieves us of the necessity of keeping them, and rids the  community of their presence..  It has been said more than once in  these columns and elsewhere that the  troubles of South Africa would pro-*  bably bring benetits to Kootenay. We  are certain that none ot ns, in any part  nf the world, wish our brothers in the  Transvaal anything but good luck.  But it began to look as if Father John  Bull was piling it up just a little too  liigh ion one of his children. We  know that he has enough for all, and  wanted our share. Now that Master  South Africa is temporarily in disgrace  John Bull is looking round at the rest  of his children and his gaze is naturally  arrested at the vigorous growth of  bis youngest child who bears the somewhat strange name of Kootenay. It  would be casting a sad reflection on  our parent to suggest that he was  unaware of the existence of his offspring and for our own sakes too we  hope that the cruel rumor was untrue.  But there is no doubt whatever that  he is keenly alive to our existence  now.  I THE TRILBY CAFE, |  $ Josephine Street, Nelson, B.

On hearing the juries called tit the  assizes one wonders why American  citizens are summoned to sit in judgment on British subjects.      " _._  A genuine bull of the purest breed  stalked into court and bellowed on  Monday last. "1 thought the man was  killed" said the witness. "Why:-1" asked  the lawyer. "Because of the way he  was breathing," nnd a gentle roar  flitted .over the court and the flaps of  his Lordship's wig'took an extra curl.  It is naturally a matter of great importance that the wilderness back, of  the Government buildings should be  brought under subjection and the Cottonwood and other young trees therein  should be pruned into the ways of uprightness. But we would point out to  our gallant Commissioner that while  this is being done, the necks of Her  Majesty's liege .ubjects are in danger,  and their souls in peril by reason of  much swearing, on account of the  many pitfalls and broken boards in  the sidewalks of Bakeristreet.  One of the direct results of this state  of affairs is the visit to Kootenay of  M*r. K. Bates Dorsey one of the very  iiivi mining engineers of the world.  ���������M v. Dorsey represents a London Syn-  dic.iie of .the first standing both socially and financially. He is not prepared at present to divulge the names  of its members. Mr. Dorsey was  requested by them to go to South  Africa, but being well acquainted with  the country and also with the nature  of its inhabitants, he feels certain that  the political troubles are far from  settled and that thiugs are more likely  to grow worse than better. The suggestion that he should visit Western  Australia met with no approval from  the great engineer, but when America  was mentioned he at once express.d  his desire to Tisit British Columbia of  which so much is now being heard.  It is perhaps directly owing, to Dr.  Jameson's raid that Mr. Dorsey is here.  He .does not intend at present to pin-  chase anything, lie is simply making  a Hying survey as it were of the  country, but. lie-leaves three niining  e^ih^r������"beinTrd_irrm^tb_keep_iheii*  eyes open.  Before leaving, in order to gather  some idea of the scale on which he  might act hi: asked for an indication  of the amount which the syndicate  would be prepared to invest. The  answer came, two million pounds���������to  begin with. These people want no  peanut stands.  Many years ago when Nelson was  but a small -place the affaiis of the  Courts 'were n..-iin.ged in primitive  fashion. For inMniice the juror's  names were drawn from a card board  shoe box, .and there was 'no erier.  so that the sherilf had to do his  own crying. This oHiciul, at that  time, was a porily individual who had  served his country in various capacites  and had earned that peace which  ensues on a'good digestion. One hor  day in June the Court was listening to  a dull lawyer droning about n monotonous case. The Jury were all right in  their box, the witnesses were .illhandy,-  iind as there was every prospect of a  quiet afternoon' the sheriff in his comfortable chair succumbed to thp prevailing influence and dozed. At tliat  time, the boats plying on the lake  were driven by steam and thought it  necessary to announce their* coming  arid going with hideous shrieks ai.d  howls made by an instrument ,-ii:-.ci;eu  to the funnel. Vou could always  gauge the musical taste of the skipper  by the length of his howl. During  this slumberous afternoon one of these  aforesaid craft was starting on its  perilous journey up the lake and proceeded to let off one of these howls,  The Captain not being a musical man  allowed the dreadful noise to last for  an atrocious length of time. Its strident tones floated in through the open  windows and spread themselves out  [over the silent court. Instantly the  I alert ear off Mr. Sheriff told him that  leaders  ofthe Reform party in ! something was wrong and his waking  ; senses    followed    the    first   impulse.  'Silence iti Court," "  The  South Aftica after being sentenced to , ..Sllence iu Court," he thundered, and  various    punishments   varying   from j llle Court laughed while the steamboat  five years imprisonment to hanging | shrieked on regardless.  i  W.
