There is un excitement at Donald  over the reported finding of rich placer  ground on the Bhiewater. The gold is  said to be fine and to be evenly disseminated through the gravel,- A prospector says that fronio to 10 cents a  pan may be got.  A Vancouver syndicate has just  completed negotiations for the put-  chase of a rich claim, accidentally discovered by Joe Copeland while out,  hunting on Cayuse Creek jn Lillooet  district. The vein has been stripped  120 feet and is shown to lie eight, feet  wide. -Assays from the samplo run  $505 to the ton. A. AV. Smith, M.P.P.,  at present in the city, says it is the  richest vein he has ever seen.  At the present rate of consumption of  copper, which is far in advance of the  supply, even greater ijuuntities'fi'oiii  the United States might, be absorbed  in the United Kingdom without inconvenience. "If the manufacturing industries of theStiit.es were suddenly to  recover, and so draw oft" part of the  American supplies, the predicted copper famine would occur very soon."  The Goldeii Kra reports that a shipment of ore is "being made from the  Hidden Treasure on the Spillernacheen  to Trail. Describing .the property the  Kia says:���������The vitreous copper on*  found there will analyse CI per cent,  metallic copper, also the carbonates go  as much as ik> per cent, copper, showing that the,ore is of an exceptional  chaiacter. The amount of ore of  course is at present undetermined but  sufficient has been shown to watrant a  large body.  Port Arthur.���������Reports   from Mr. F.  S.  Wiley,   manager   of   the Saw  Bill  mine, are to the effect that No. 1 shaft  is down forty feet and the vein* which  was three feet wide on the stit fact*.'has"  increased to live feet six inches, and is  very   rich.     From   Lake   Harold the  I news comes that the mill.is in full ruii-  i ning order and two gold  bricks.' have  j already be������*n produced since t he middle  ' of Mav.   The vein is ������iid_to lie so rich  that the ore should be smelted instead  of milled.    All tin* other openings on  the property aie looking exceedingly  well, or as the 'superintendent put it,  so marvellously rich, 'that gold mining  never looked so hopeful before in  this  country as it does today.  THE VICTORIA DISASTER.  Over ,i hundred  Russians in Berlin  have  been  ordered  to leave  the city |  within three days.   No explanation of |  the order is  given,  except that they  are "obnoxious foreigners."  The police have discovered a large  quantity of rifle* bayonetsand ammunition in a house on Lower Tyrone street  Dublin. The articles are all out of  date and are believed to have been  stored there for use during the fenian  rising.  The Times' Cape Town correspondent says that the spilt in the Pretoria  executive council is becoming more  acute. Secretary of Stato Leyds iiml  Vice-president Joubeit oppose President Kruegerjwho favors conciliation  and reforms. Dr. Leyds is very unpopular, and is likely to succeed Montagu  White as consul general to the Tian**-  vaal in London. The Orange Free  State, has declined to enter Dr. Leyd's  proposals for .joint agressive action  against English and French interests,  but it has agreed to combine withj'the  Transvaal to resist any wanton attack  on the latter.  THE SOUDAN CAMPAIGN.  The First Engagement  Firket, Egypt���������This point was taken  by tbe Egyptian troops at an early houi  this morning and their manner of acquitting themselves in this, the 6rst engagement of the. Nile campaign, has given  great satisfaction to the British officers.  The long night march was pursued in  absolute silence, in cousequeuce of which  the arrival of the Egyptians at the Dervishes camp took, the enemy completely  by surprise. They quickly rallied, however, and rushed to their arms. They  stood to their positions and made u  stubborn defence of the camp for two  hours, during which there was hard  fighting.- The Dervishes were finally  put to route, by a flank movement executed by the cavalry. Seeing themselves in danger of being surrounded,'  the forces of the Khalifa took flight to the  southward torward Suarda, pursued by  the cavalry'.  The reportq received indicate the loss  to the dervishes will amount to i000 men.  Among those killed is the Emir Ham-  muda, who whs their commander; besides  many important chiefs. Hammuda was  in command of the largest force at  Suardn. The Egyptain loss iu the fight  was 20 killed and 80 wounded. , Hundreds of dervishes were taken prisoners.  THE 0UBAN REBELLION.  Defeat7.. tKe Insurgents. "'  Havana.'���������The band of Acea demanded  the surrender of tbe fort nt the village of  Gabriel in Havana province and sent a  threat to blow it up with dynamite.  The chief of the garrison detained the  messengers who, had been sent to parley  with him as to the prisoners. After  keepiug up a fire for two hours,' the insurgents retreated, burning 1_ houses.  They buried five that were killed aud  carried off their wounded.  In the course of several skirmishes in  Havana, Matanzas" aud Piuar del Rio,  the insurgents have lost 20 killed. Colonel Figuero attacked the iusurgents in  extensive positions held by them on the  heights of Santa Barbara, iu Havana  province. -Both sides opened tire simultaneously, but the insurgents soon re  treated, abandoning 1_ of their killed,  -butcarryiug-'oir their.wounded.  Captain Lopez, with 150 infantry, met  a squadron of cavalry at ' Bavameses,  where" he found 600 well-armed insurgents occupying good positions, and  forced, them to retire with "a loss of 18  killed. The official report states that  the troops had three killed, while Captain  Lopes himself was seriously wouuded  and 11 privates were also wounded.  VENEZUELA,  Loudon.^The Venezuela question has  again crept to the" front.   The Speaker,  for  instance, says it hears disquietiug  news in connection with the negotiations  looking to a peaceful settlement of the  j boundary dispute between British Guiana  : and Venezuela.   It adds, however,  that  j nothing definite has yet happened, and  j says that perhaps there is no cause for  | immediate   anxiety.     Bnt, the Speaker  I continues, "The facts are perfectly clear  !���������1st, tbe report of the'^Atnericau com-  i mission is expected ere long, and iu  the  ; event of refusal to accept its recommendations we.shall have   an   outburst   of  feeling in the  United States, compared  with which that of-last December will be  tnlliug; 2nd,   That in the circumstances  the foreigu otlice is not making "any attempt to hasten the close of the incident  and is simply pursuing  the old plan of  letting things drift.    We can speak with  confidence when we say that in the highest quarters of the Opposition "there is a  feeling of grave anxiety as to the:, futm������  of the question.  Verdict of the Coroners Iury.  Victoria, June 12. (.Special to Ihe  Mixek.)��������� The coroners jiuy empanelled  to enquiie iuto the Point Ellice bridge  disaster brought in their verdict this  evening.- They find tlmt the street railway company was guilty of negligence in  uot taking proper precautious for lhe  snft ty of passengers. The heavily loaded  car being-iu excess of the capacity of the  bridge. The car was dangerously over  loaded aud the company should have  seen that the bridge was safe. The city  authorities also were blamed, the jury  'hiding that it was their duty to see 11.at  the bridge was maintained in a proper  state of repair aud efficiency. If the\  did not have the power to restrict street.  car traffic they should have got power  from the legislature to do so.  Thc government also was touched up  for not exercising proper supervision  over the construction cf the bridge.  POWDER IN CITIES.  LOCAL   NEWS.  The inhabitants of Victoria have for  long tried to have the powder stored io  Be aeon hill Park remrved to a sate distance' from the towu. This is at last being  done aud the powder will presently all  be stored at the barracks at McCaulay  Point. This Victoria powder house was  not so large as the one that threatens  Nelson und no stone should, be left uu-  i inued to have the danger removed. The  following telegram shows that even the  Hamilton Powder Co. hits accidents  sometimes.  St. llilire, June 5.���������An explosion at  the Hamilton powder works here destroyed what is known as the old powdei  mill. Nobody was killed or hurt by the  explosion, all the employes being at dinner at tbe time.  THE PRISONERS RELEASED.

Once upon a time there was a little  maiden who wondered how in the world  - she could get to the bull. She had a  white satin petticoat that flared and  fluted liku a half-open umbrella, anil a  pair of pink kid slippers with silk stockings to match, and she had gloves that  wrinkled up to the elbow and a pain tod  fan thinner than air, and pearls for her  neck, aud a twinkling butterfly for her  hair. But whero was the pink silk waist  with its yards of lace up and down f H������d  the wide round sleeves unfurled to tho  breeze and softly flown it away ?  Kor the dressmaker had no news of it,  and the lady's maid could not find it,  ���������nd the butler and housemaid vowed  they had not seen it. and from cellar to  garret the house was ransacked in yaiii.  " And great was the turmoil and the tears;  for without .hor pink silk waist how  could a little maiden go to a ball J  And   the   prince   was   coming   to   the  ball;���������tho   beautiful   prince,     with   tho  golden   curls   and   the  coat of   flowered  brocade; the  prince of her dream, whose  photograh   stood   on   her dressing-table,  ���������nd whose image was painted indelibly on  ���������her  heart.     He   was   coming   from   his  palace far away   by   the sea, and at  last  after all  the secret  longing, she  should  behoU him face to face.    Siie   should be-  , hold him, and he���������he  would  look iu her  tijmm,   and   they   would    shine   for   him  brighter  than   twin   stars   in   the   sky.  And he would stop and gaze  at her face,  ���������ad think ic more  lovely  than  the  full  round moon.     And   then he   would  ask..  her to open-the ball, and she would stand  up. beside   him   with   the   glory   in her  heart.   And in the pauses of the dance he  would letfn down anil whisper toiler, and  she would blush   and   tremble   ami   feel  half afraid.   And the words he whispered  would be sweeter than she had overheard  before, and her heart   would   confess   Its  joy through eyes brimful of rears.      Ami  lie would carry the thought of her   home  with him ou his  journey.    And   by  and  by.   from   his   far   away    kingdom,   he  would   ride   back   for   her in   a   golden  coach.    And all her life   long  she would  walk by liis side, with   a   crown   on  her  head and two pages behind her to hold up  h������r long blue velvet train���������there in   that  uplondid kingdom by  the sea,   whero the  winds blow   balmily   all   the  year,   and  -the���������sun���������smiles down���������on-orange-groves-  and   lilies   and   lilac,    aud nothing  but  beauty ever comes. *      ^  Yes, all tliis wonderful happiness  awaited her if only she could go to the  ball. . Hut how could she go without  her pink silk.waist?  , She fat alone in her chamber after din-,  . ner, hapless of the loss of it, winking  down her tears and smothering her sobs  while she considered what it wero best to  do. The young iiioom shone in at - her  through the window, serene in spite of  her troubled heart. liy and by, when  despair drew^vory near aud was about, lo  blot out her dreams with its shadow, a  most surprising little ' lady . slid in  through thu casement down one of tlio  ulanting moon beams.  "Tlie very thing!" thought our little  maiden. "Here is my fairy godmother."  Sure enough, here she was, . with her  ���������ipangled gown of gauze and her silver  slippers, with a star on her forehead ami  a wand in her hand. And with words  rin her lips that tinkled like bells, like a  little scale of bells softly singing iu the  wind:  Look up there ! _,  Dost thou see  On the moon's horn  A silver key ': .   ,  i   Pluck it down, '    "  Then bear it far.  Up yonder hill,  'Neath the p.-ile green star.  High "in the snows,  Man   had dared not tread.  Unlock tlie palace���������  There on the bed.  Underneath its pillows  .  So soft aud sweet.  Is the pink   silk waist  i'or thy beauty meet." ������-  |,       Just put it on���������  Thou shalt be at the ball,  '  And thc dreams of thy heart  shall be thine thou���������all !���������  The prince a-wooing thee.  The kingdom by the sea,  And all things brave and fair!  But���������have a care! beware!"  A_d calling softly her word of warning  th������* little lady   vanished with her   gauzy  ipanglcd   gown   and her wand   and   her  itar aud the voice that, tinkled like bells.  Her earthly god-daughter  sat disconsolate in tiie moonlight.    "How can I ever  pluck a key oft" the horn   of  the   moon?"  ihe sighed.    I must give   up the ball and  the   prince   and���������and���������"    the poor littlo  maid could nor- finish, for she   blushed to  chink   that   anyone, even   a , fairy godmother had divined her dream. But with  the ulush   her   courago; niountftU.    "She  giUht kuow," she thought;  "and   I  can  only try." So she stood on the window-  sill and sighed horsolf upward along the  path by whioh the gauzy god-mother had  come. And as she rose higher, and tho  trees and fields faded into a mist of moonlight, sho grew very much afraid and  could hardly keep her spirits light enough  to rise. And then gradually, as the  earth grew round beneath her, and this  va&t round thing grew smaller and smaller, and she passed out of tho shadow into  the full glare of tho sun, gradually sho  could scarcely breathe for fear and loneliness. But still she held her courage by  a tight rein and wonld not let it go.  Soon tho partly shadowed moon loomed  larger before her, and the vastnoss of its  dread peaks and caverns filled her with  savage dread. Fierce beasts would have  given her joy, mad noises would havo  soothed her���������anything rather than death  and silence! Yet, in spite of all, she  pushed on to tho last lit, peak on that rim  beyond whieh uo earthly eye can see.  And there, sure enough, hung the silver j  key ; and sho dared to clasp it and let the j  weight of it boar her back to earth.  ' "Tiiat was terrible,'"' sho thought and  shivered, "B ut-surely tho worst is over " |  ' But thc worst is not ovor,by any means  ���������for what are tho terrors of death to the  errors of life? The mountain was full of  monsters that sprang out at the littlo  ! maiden as she climbed. Evory shadow  ' was ��������� thronged and every noise was a  grumble or a growl. And the sharp stones  tore her 1'eot and the horns her hands.  Big tears sprang out for pain but still she  pressod onward. A nd when tho eternal  snows spread out betoro her she was  of their softness in spit* of the bitter  cold.  Many a time during that white ascent  she stumbled and fell and was almost  buried in the snow-drifts. Many a time  her heart foil dead within her and seemed  to refuse her its last faint spasm of power.  Yet again and again the strength came,  i ever feebler, and still she staggored on.  And at last a glimmer of lights astonished her, like a steamer far out on a  misty sea. Hope rushed back upon her  at the sight and fired her frozen blood.  Onward once more she draggod her weary  feet and in a moment they struck a trodden road. And down its vista, now near  and nearer she beheld tho enchanted,  palace.  It was all aglow with light, and  through tho windows she saw fires blazing. Oil' she must hasten to roach it���������  clown the path, up the steps, and now tho  silver key is in the lock. Through the  door pitches the little maiden���������and beyond, into the great flre-llt chamber.  She runs forward to the fire, dumb and  blind with thanksgiving and joy. A  couch is drawn near the hearth with  piled pillows���������so soft, so restful! Shu  turns to throw herself down���������just a moment of peace after all the pain !  But as she turns a faint voice seems to  tinkle "Beware!" and a thousand echoes  spring'out of the silence to chime "Beware ! beware!" The little maiden grows  angry at the word. "Have I scaled heaven  and conquered in a night," she says.  "and havo I not earned this little minute  of rest? Lo, I must have it, or I shall  die!"  So she sinks down on the couch by the  lire, among the silkon pillows. And she  hears no more the chiming voices, ami  sees no more the leaping flames. For  her ears and her eyes grow drowsy witli  dreams.  She sleeps on and on, while the prince  comes to the ball, and leads the tairest  down to'the floor; ou and on while ho  looks for a face that shall thrill his soul  with love; on and on she sleeps, while the  dancers vanish and the candles burn out  in their sockets.  Aiid .when she awakes the hearth is  cold, the morning streams sadly in over  the snow, and tho pink silk waist lies  crushed under the cushions.  ZOTELSOZCT  Planing Mill!

The typical summer girl is- devoted to  her veil. She has loug since learned its  power to charm and has mado it a study.  Her veils aro iu harmony with her  mood.  First, there is the coquettish veil with  its saucy little dots arranged to bring  her pet ilimplo into prominence or call  attention to the rouud curve of her  cheek. Then there is the demure veil with  its simple folds. This is worn when sho  wishes to impress observers with hor shyness and sweet simplicity There are also  ~Uie~prit.tiutl~vcH-~to-prote-t~her'complex'  ion aud to keep her unruly locks in place.  Her vcll-pins are also many and her veil-  cases aro sweet-scented and elaborate  affairs  This season she is devoted to chiffon,  which is the veil of the hour. In its most  popular guise it is white sprinkled with  white chenille dots and is warrant-d to  inake even a plain you ngt person good to  look upon. The fact that one dry-goods  -inn in town has sold over 2,000 yards  of chiffon for veiling during tho last two  month'* proves that the summer girl appreciates its beautifying effect. Many of  the young women at - the fashionable  summer resorts are continuing a fashion,  of last season by wearing two veils at  the same time. The idea-is to protect the  complexion; as a fashion it is more  grotesque' than beautiful. A veil of  net hnviiitf a fancy mesh is worn close to  the face and tied tightly at the back of  the head. Over this from the brim of  the hat floats a veil of chiffon which is  caught loosely at the hack. The veils  when worn together are usually of the  same color, bi.it. occasionally the outer  veil l.- blue,���������brown or black chiffon ami  the inner veil white."*���������-  Though whito and black is the popular  combination of the chiffon veils many  are sold with the dots in brown or dark  blue. Plain'.chiffon veils are also in  demand. They match" iu color the Ik*,  with which they are worn. " The sewing  silk veil still,holds its own for steamer  or yachting wear. The calling veil of  the summer is an imported affair ot black  thread laco with a dainty border.  Many of the net veils with a fancy mesh  show a liny border of yellow Valenciennes laco hut none of these veils in any.  sense ��������� rivals in popularity the one of  dotted chiffon.  "I understand, brethren," said tho paster of the village church at the close of the :  morning service, "that there  is a. movement on  foot to hold a  donation party at  the parsonage to-morrow evening.  I don't  mind marrying couples from tho  country ,  for li'and  having my wife give  them a .  dinner of fried chicken besides, but I   am '  a poor man, brethren, and I draw the line ;  at. donation parties,    i. have all the tidies, i  and pin neckties and maroon  slipper pat- ;  terns I shall need for tlie next fifty years, '  and there are not enough provisions in thu'  house to feed tlie entirn congregation.

The continued rise in the price of  silver is naturally exciting plensuie-  uble comment"., and recent exchange."  throw some light on the cause of it.  A New York authority says: "We  can stute from n reliable source thnt  the French government is buying anywhere from 1,000,(IO(), to 2,000,000 ozs.  of silver each month for coinage purposes. It is stated also that this coinage is not only for the French government, but for many other governments  for which France coins money. A  large dealer in silver this week paid as  high us (18. .5 for u round lot of silver,  and a large sail* is also reported al. OS*,.  One of the largest exporters of silver  was bidding (>8g at lhe close on Tuesday afternoon." A leading bullion  house is also quoted as saying: "There  is a steady demand for silver for export  to London. From London it goes at  present to France for coinage and to  Germany and Llnssin. We Iind there  is an unusually strong desire for gold  and silver in l.iiropeiin countries. We  presume the silver is wanted entirely  for coinage."  One of the best Knglish authorities  describing the situation as it existed a  week or two ago says: "The demand  is special, and, when the order is filled,  the price is likely to fall buck again,  lt will be remembered that lust \������eek  the Spanish government accepted tenders for 800,000 ounces. It is believed  that those who tendered had only a  portion of the amount in hand; ami  that the Spanish government is pressing for delivery. Consequently im-  'm'ecliate purchases have to be made to  deliver the amcunl contracted for.  [ndiii is quite out of the market, the  fall in exchange, even with a rise in the  price of silver in India, not permitting  India to purchase at anything over 30J  China might give a higher price than  India, but it is not buying over Hid.  Although a further improvement in  the price may be witnessed before the  special order is completed, the price  thereafter is not expected to fall below  about '31d. per ounce, as Japan comes  into the market upon any evidence of  weakness and is disposed to purchase  at aboutthat figure."  Fi.oin these remarks it will be seen  that though there is no expectation of  a phenominal rise in silver the outlook  is by no means unfavorable.. So far  this year .about $20,000,000, in silver  has been shipped and the probabilities  are that a s-*.i 11 larger amount will be  demanded.  PROGRESS.  The  inauguration of a daily   train  service to  Spokane   is   an   event.not.  lightly  to  be  passed over.    It niarks  ;. an era in the history of Nelson and of  thc- Kootenay country" generally and  it is to be noted that the extra service  ���������is not initiated in order to"'encourage  ti'iilTic, but- has beon forced on the  company by the enormous deun'mri on  ils resources. *���������_  It is-Siiid that a mini deserves well of  .his country who makes two blades of  gr.issgrow where only oue grew before.  "��������� Wlm. therefore is to be said of Mn.  Cuhhi.n* who makes railways run where  before there was only trackless forest.  and wild mountain. The daily service  comes at a time when Nelson is well  lilted to receive it: There is no boom  'in the town in the sense of mad spec-,  ulation ahd ruinous, purchase of outlaying lots, but thore is a steady and  rapid progress in solid business.'   Con-  -'siderably over twenty buildings have  gone up this year, many of them business blocks of imposing size to .be  occupied by business men who have  not come here to admire the scenery.  Others;, are ' going up and there would  be more if lumber ruiild be supplied  faster. Business sites on Baker street  have risen considerably in value aud  what  used.to be considered the centre  . ot" the town is practically filled up.  There is a demand, at reasonable prices  for residental lots, and many have  been purchased on whicli the. prosperous people of Nelson may build themselves homes.  There seems every reason to believe'  thnt the enterprising proprietors of  the Nelson Sc Fort Sheppard railway-  will not find themselves out of pocket  by their spirited conduct. Traffic on  the Columbia river lias increased to an  eno^rnous extent and that on ihis .side  seems just as large.  Nelson must not forget that Mr.  Corbin and his railway have been  kept out of Nelson by the (/ovum merit  and the C.P.R. between.I hem. On  one or the other or both the blame  rests. But for them the daily passengers from Spokane would alight in the  midst of the town.  DANGER.  Our remarks last week concerning  the clanger of the town from the proximity of the powder house have had  the effect of arousing popular at tention  to the subject. A petition is being  circulated which will be laid before the  (ir.'ind Jury. It is only to be hoped  that this prayer will have some better  result than its predecessors, ("rand  Juries have "presented" on this  matter more than once, and learned  Judges have blandly assured the soon  to be released jurors that it should  have their most careful attention. For  all lhe effect that these presentments  have ever had they might us well have,  been thrown beneath the bench and  served as footstools for the judicial  toe. We believe though that tbe  Govern men t did once issue instruct ions  for the removal of the powder house,  and those instructions certainly have  never been carried out, Whose fault  is it that,they have not? A grave  responsibility rests on any official who  may be dilatory in his duty on the  matter.  While on this subject it may be as  well to ask if the Baker street bridge-  are ever inspected. We have never  heard of such a thing being done. The  two footbridges were built by private  enterprise some little time ago and it  is possible {that they would be all the  better and safer if they were looked to  by a competent man. There is probably no reason for any alarm on the  subject, but in view of the recent terrible catastrophe in Victoria it behoves everyone who is responsible for  the public safety to see that he is acting up to his trust. In the event of an  accident the public will be apt to talk  very "straight" on the matter."  TIIE    CIVIL    SERVICE   AND    TIIE  ELECTIONS.  - It is contended in some parts that  civil seivants.,should have no vote at  the elections. This would be most  unfair, because men occupying positions under the Government are just  ;is in lie h int en-si rd "in the count, ys  well being as anyone else, but they  should distinctly not take any active  part in the campaign. . We believe  that there is a feeling in civil service  circles that in the event of a change of  Government many of them would lose  their billets. This' we fancy is erroneous and if any such thing was con-  templated or attempted it should be  strongly "tliscouiaged by the entire  press of Canada. The country wants  its work well done and should have  the best men to do it. Having got  them they should be made. to feel  secure in their positions and beyond  the power of scheming politicians.  The system of change adopted in the  United States does not produce good  results and it is entirely antagonistic  to British ideas.  NOTES.  _o '  __W_e_m.UHt__eongrHtulate_o!ir-ne-ighlxm  the Kootenaiiin not'only on its new  appearance but on its general excellence from a journalistic point of view.  Kaslo has reason to be proud of its  paper.  It is worth noting that of all the new  mining companies gazetted, of which  a list will be found in another column,  none of the Foreign ones except the  Monte Christo have the miigic word  "Limited" after their names. The  omission of this would appear to spoil  the legal fiction about non assessable  shares.  An attempt wasjnade in our enn-  ���������-emporarv last week to impugn Hie  private character of the Editor of this  paper by contrasting two paragraphs  one in Tin-: Min Kit and the other in  The Province on the subject, of Mr.  Houston's retirement from tlie'field of  journalism in Kootenay. The Editor  of Tim MiNEii desires to say that he is  not the author of the latb r and had  nothing whatever to do with it.  There is tronble in Congress between  the Senate and the House. The latter  passed a resolution to build four new  battleships. The. Senate reduced the  number to two. In speaking to the  motion Senator ��������� Gorman opelily  alluded to the stealing that goes on in  the Government departments. Another Senator, Chandler, said that owing to combination between the only  two firms capable of. turning out  armour plate, the price of that commodity is raised to ,-j.OOO a ton when it  ought not to exceed$'.M). The United  States will have to rectify these little  matters before it thinks of war.  not nnly that lhe public has ah enormous sum io invest but also that the  recent fashion in the more speculative  class of inve.-i ments is fading. i\|ean-  wiiile the company promoter is Inost  acl ivi>. and the feature of the clay is  the preference . shown for industrial  enterprise. Among these * may be  found breweries and distilleries, kiiown  in 'the street'as 'group shops,"'While  bicycles and tires occupy an important  division. West "Australian .mines  occupy a third place and are followed  by a motley assortment of industrials  comprising electrical, gas and incandescent lighting, artificial silk, papei,  horseless carriages and nitrates. It is  an admirable opportunity for introducing British Columbia mines, but everything depends on how it is done and  who does it.  rilOI*_K--IO.Y-L  t'ABUM.  G1 KO. A. U. HALL, M. ������., I). 1).

THE MINER,  NELSON- B.C., SATURDAY,  [UNE "13,  1896.  I  BY PERCIE  AV.  HART.  (Copyright, 1895.)  (Being au account, of certain mysterious  experiences of W. .Meeker of Chicago. III,,  written by himself.)  1 ma not whut you illicit cull 11 hook  writer, although I write in books. That  is, in books of account, ledgers and the  otlier miscellaneous vohiines that are  nsuiilly found in a mercantile*, oflice. J  tiuike this explanation at tlie outset, so  that my readers will bv prepared for a  simple statement of fact, unadorned  with flowery metaplibr or blood-stirring  denouement.  .My inline is William Meeker. I am 82  years of axe, married to the best wife in  the whole world, witli two children���������boy  and girl���������ugm\, respectively, . and 2 years.  I own a little eotuitce home at Mount.  Clarence, just nine miles from the Hoard  of Trade lluilding in Chicago, and I. am  employed by the well-known ���������jruin brokerage firm of White, Hawkins & .Sumner, as  confidential clerk und bookkeeper. Information us to my sobriety and morality c:in  be obtained by auy oue interested from  my employers, or from my neighbors iu  Mount Clarence. I make tlie above full  and clear statement of my personality for  the purpose of showing that I am not  afraid to stand before the world and vouch  for the accuracy of this statement of my  .strange experience while in India. And I  also wish to say, before I proceed with my  narrative, that it is made public in direct  opposition to the advice and wishes of  some of my male friends. Hut my wife  and I have talked the matter over together, and relying on her keen womanly  intuition and upon the broad fact that  the truth can never do barm, I have persevered in my intention.  On the afternoon of the twentieth day  of August of last year I left my oflice at  the usual hour and wended my way to the  Illinois Central station, lie fore getting  on the train 1 stopped at tlie news stand  aud purchased a copy of tbe Kvening  Globe-Standard, und settling myself in the  smoking ear, with a cigar ia my 'mouth,  proceeded to con over the news of the day.  Upon turning to the editorial page I noticed "that thc publishers offered a free  trip around the woild to the first person  who would supply the missing wonl from  a sentence that they printed. Now it so  happened that ni'\ mind instantly supplied  the gap, and so impressed was I with the  belief that my word was the right one that  ou reaching home 1 cut out the coupon,  aud, filling it iu, walked back to the  station and handed the envelope containing it to the postal clerk on the in-bound  train.  Judge of my surprise and delight when  on the very next evening I saw my name  printed as the winner, having successfully  supplied the last word of the sentence,  "The proof of immortality lies iu the  mystic power of���������thought." On reaching  my home I found a letter from the publishers, inclosing an order on a leading  tourist agency for a trip around the world,  and warmly congratulating mc on my  success.  My wife, although expecting to undergo  a surgical operation, was very anxious  that 1 should have the advantage of the  trip, and my employers warmly assenting  I left Chicago oil the third day of October.  It is not my intention to tire the public  with the itinerary of my route. Sutlice ib  to say that on the l.th of November I >vas  speeding across the continent of Asia iu  the very comfortable coaches of the Gov-  'eminent Transcontinental Railroad. Iu  order to reconcile the different castes of  Hindoos to the railroad it is necessary to  provide separate coaches or compartments  for their benefit, ami I was consequently  surprised when we stopped at Naw in ugger  to see au aged native being assisted by attentive followers to a seat in tbat section  of which I was the only other occupant.  But although I noted tliat they all took  pains not to eveu allow their garments to  -rush against -mine, they bade me good-  day iu the_purest of English, and seemed  by their conversation and actions to be  well-bred in European politeness.  The aged oiie, whom tbe rest addressed  with every sign of intense respect, as Ram  -'-Sunjeetr_eenu'd-to-be-iiearing���������tlie-vergu  of dissolution, but the Hashing eye aud  - quick, short utterances told of a spirit  that could ill contain itself in its weakening material body. Although bo.ved  down and lean and gaunt, he showed signs  of having once beeu of tall, commanding  presence.  .  Wefwere drawing near to the native  town of Ouduapore, aud its silvered min-  . arcts glittered in the distance,-when 1 felt  the air brakes applied witb .('uicl' force.  Almost before'l^liad time to realize it our  car had toppled over and rested - iu the  water cour.se, dry at this season, fortunately, tbat bordered the track.. Quickly recovering from the shock, I cleared myself  from the debris aud was just about to  jump out ot a window when 1 heard the  voice of Kam Su'njeet calling me by name.  Although much agitated by the accident,!  . remember being surprised at liis thus addressing me, but turning hastily I look  his outstretched hand and with the help  of his coiift'nnluiis carried him nut. as carefully as possible.  Upon investigation 1 found that a loose  fish plate had caused the accident, but  that, fortunately, no one had been injured  ��������� beyond a few slight bruises. Owing, however, to the delay in jacking the train back  on the track the conductor informed me  that we would be unable to ..-proceed on  our journey for four hours at least. 1 was  about to .walk down the track toward  Ouduapore, although the excessive heat  and presence of wild beasts in the district  made such a course decidedly dangerous  (as the native guard kindly imparted to  me),uwhen I found myself addressed by  one of Ram Sunjeet's companions, - who,  pointing to a little shrine or chapel, just  visible among thetrees. invited the American sahib to follow bim thither. .Being  glad of anything that promised to occupy  " the time of tedious waiting, I gladly assented, and in a few moments was ushered  into a sort of inner apartment of the little  " chapel, in the centre of which, on a lied of  rushes, lay the semi-recumbent form of  the aged Brahman.  He greeted me with simple dignity, expressed iii.s obligations for my -nssistance  . in the wreck and invited me to stay with  him iu the cool shade of the little sanctuary until we were able to continue our  journey. Recalling the fact of bis addressing me by name, I mentioned the circumstances to him.  "I know far more about you," he answered, with a feeble smile, "than you  imagine. I know that your wife in -Mount  Clarence bas undergone an operation, and  that it has been entirely successful, and  she now i_ iu as good health as can be expected. I tell you this now to relieve your  mind from its anxiety, as it will be impos.  jjble for you to receive a letter from boi*������  I  -.���������ntil you reach San Francisco. I have no  desire to diminish your self-respect in auy  degree, but it was I who whispered to your  spirit ear tlie termination of the sentence  in the Evening Globe-Standard."  Amazed at what [ heard I merely made'  a commonplace reply; and, calling all my  incredulity into play, I endeavored to look  upon this aged pilgrim as a possible Oriental bunco steerer, who for purposes of his  own had made himself acquainted with  my personality. For a few moments the  old Hindoo gazed fixedly at me, and then  in tones of wondrous sympathetic pity he  raised his eyes heavenward and said:  "Oh what a world of lacking faith I  Must they always see the tree before they  can believe that the tiny seed will grow to  maturity:'" And then, turning again to  ine: "Mr. Meeker, it is contrary to the custom of the order of adepts to which I belong to give demonstrations of puerile  materialistic manifestations. Our aims  are higher than these, but in order to set  your mind completely at rest in regard to  your wife's condition I bej; to offer you  this paper." '"  To my surprise his extended hand, which  at first sight had looked empty, contained  a copy of the Chicago Globe-Standard,  and when I looked at the headline it read,  Thursday, November 19, 1891���������that very  day aud date. Scarce knowing what I did  I turned to the Mount Clarence items, antl  rcail that Mrs. William Meeker's opera;  lion fur catar ict of the eye had been entirely successful. * * * Like a lightning flash came to me all that I had ever  read about the mystic occult lore of the  adepts of India, and impelled by that natural instinct which causes all. men tc  seize .agerly upon special opportunities of  acquiring knowledge I questioned my aged  companion with all the reverence and respect that his knowledge and position  commanded. He told me that all meu who  would give themselves solely to study  might become adepts, but that not-until  every animal faculty had been brought  into complete subjection was it possible to  attain knowledge.  A preliminary period of seven years was  usually spent by'the devotee in battling  and subduing all sensual, worldly and distracting traits of character. At the end of  this period a man became completely in-  diffeut to the creature or bodily comforts,  and was able to pursue any desired course  of contemplation���������undisturbed or hampered by any form of interruption. Ram  Sitrjeet stated that it wus practically Impossible for eminent men of the present  scientific world whose whole structure of  wisdom has been built up iu the last few  hundred years to eveu comprehend the  salient laws of the universe that had beeu  acquired by the adepts iu their continuous  line of students, dating back almost  twenty thousand years. On asking tha  reverend adept why this knowledge was  not given forth for the whole world to enjoy he shook his head gravely, aiid* stated.  that the time had not yet come, that there  were too many men who would and could  make evil use of the priceless knowledge  so easily obtained, that some time in the  ages to come all mankind would be adepts  and that then universal peace, brotherly  love and human happiness would reign  sublime.  On the announcement of the train beiug  ready we re-embarked and I regretted to  find that the aged patriarch stopped off at  Oudrapore. Ho graciously bade me good,  bye and again assured me of the health of  my wife. On arrival at San Francisco I  found the letter that he. had mentioned,  and on returning home I compared my  copy of the Evening'Globe-Standai'd with  the "regular issue of that date and found  them identical.  I have n o theory or wise exordium to  close with. My endeavor has simply been  to state facts. I prefer to leave, opinion*,  toothers.

ORIGIN,OF   HOKEY   POKEY.  1.eft-Over I<������ Dre.im nought at th* Hotel-'  mill Ki-oz-ii A tain,  lli.nce the PuUoii.  It is an actual fact that old .Ice cream  Is bought up by Italians "and venders  from restaurants and ice cream stands,  frozen a second and third time, and again  offered for sale, to be consumed by the  newsboys and general public under the  ullurlng title of hokey pokey. Almost  every night these venders mako the  rounds of all tho hotels, and buy up  = whatever���������has-been���������left-over^-from-- tho-  day previous. This cream has all melted  more or less to its original consistency,  and if it is still frozen when they.get it  there is little left but fluid.by tlie time it  has reached Brooklyn aud the Italian  quarter.  This melting process is the cause of all  the danger. Cream having once been  frozen and again melted very readily  turns sour. In this stage it is poisonous.  The vendor of hokey pokey cares little  whether or not the cream is sour. Quickly upon his return' to . his quarters ho  freezes all this mush, and packs it.away  for the next day's use.  The few cases of poisoning that have  come to tho public notice arc hi all prob-  nbiity not the only ones that have occurred, for physician's say that 'many cases  of poisoning have occurred in the districts  where the hokey pokey venders are that  could" not be accounted for. because of  the suddenness of death.  It has generally been understood that  certain establishments are putting out  large quantities of hokey pokey and supplying tho venders, but this is not so.  The Italians and. their, families are the  only ones who manufacture and cater to  the'eustomers.���������New York Herald.  B. O, IRON WORKS COMPANY, LD.
