A vein of (]ii;irl/, lms been opened  tlu* Tiger from whicli assays up to $4  gold have been obtained.  The Burnt Pass country is attracting  much iittcntioii and the district is full of  prospectors.  Seventy car loads of fi-eij_r.it for Rossland are detiiined nt Northport by the  Hoods.  Mr. A. J. McCol), the well known Q.  C. of Vancouver, has established himself  at liossland where lie aud Mr. C. R.  Hamilton have entered into partnership.  The shnft on the Commander which is  now clown SO feet has bottomed on oie  which is reported to go .H20 iu gold- and  14 per cent copper.  At the Centre Star there are 5000 tons  of ore ou the dump. The main tunnel  has been in high grade order for a mouth  aud there is no sign of the chute petering out.  A drilling match for the championship  of the province aud a $200 purse has  beeu arranged to take place this after  noon. The contesting teams will be  John Fitzuilliam rind David Groggin aud  Alex McLeod and William Ross.  "Work on the City of Spokane, the  claim recently acquired by the L. F. R,  & C. G. Co., lias disclosed a stroug vein  of ore." The tunnel is iu 80 feet, the last  L0 being in ore. A cross cut of 12 feet  has so far foiled to pierce tbe ledge. The  assays so far have given very various  results.  ��������� At the drilling contest on the 4th the  following were the results; McLeod  and Ross, Nickel Plate, 32j^' inches;  Fits*William tand Smith, Crown Point,  Sljjjj inches; Pi ley aud O'Dounell, War  Eagle, 3\'i inches; Johnson and Stevenson. Iron Horse, 28%, Davis and Everett,  Le Loi, 27J,-;.- The prizes contested for  wero purses of $400 and $100 respectively.  A suit for libel has been preferred by  C. AY. Jackson, of. the liossland Miner,  against W. II. Mend, manager of the  Green Crown Mine, aud Eber C, Smith,  of the Record. The liossland Miner has.  recently contained articles unfavorable  to the Green Crown aud in replying the  accused are stated to have published a  personal libel on Messrs. Reavis aud  Jackson, of the Rosslaud Miner, containing matter iu no wise conuected with the  Green Crown, Mr. Mead' apologize-  fully aud the case against him was" d'iop-  pt-'**. bnt E. C Smith was held over in  $751* bonds, to appear at the next court.  Ttie Rosslaud Miner calls attention  Id ihe circumstances attending llie floating of the Bald Butte Co. in Seattle. It  says a prospectus has been issued which  alleges among -.other things that the  claim is a full.oue aud adjoins the Mayflower, ��������� Grand Prize and Deer Park,  which is a physical' impossibility. Another doubtful feature ot the prospectus  is that two refetei.ccs are given iu Rossland, ueithcr of which was authorized  while one was expressly forbidden to be  used. The further fact that the last bill  of sale recorded, namely- from AV. E.  Smith to J. E. Porter, showed the outrageous consideration of 835,000, makes  tbe ,whole transaction look very suspicious.  sanca.       '  ..2050 worth of lots in Sanca were sold  on Tuesday last while t'.e s. s. Angerona  lay at the dock. The Co. did not care to  sell until platting was finished and good  lots designated. 4 hotels, 2- stores and a  restaurant are under way, besides private  residences.  The Montana company operating in  *Whi_"_~Gi'oi-se~roonhtaiu���������district" have-let*  the first 10 miles of their wagon road to  John R. Pat ton", au old and experienced  railway contractor, late of thc Columbia  & Western at Trail .Creek, at ������950 per  miie. lie has the privelege 'of the  remaining 8 miles at figures to be decided  on hereafter, when the grade is established. The guide of the tfirst 10" miles  is uot to exceed 6 per cent. Work will  commence on the 22ud inst.  ual assays have been obtained. When  assessment work was begun three weeks  ago, snow covered the discovery showing'  of clear ore, and a new opening' was  made several hundred feet lower. Tho  first shaft disclosed clear galena, nnd a  few days' work made, it plain that an ore  body is near.  'litAin  -'������������������-_-.  "The smelter is running full  time on'* a  contract witli the War Eagle Co.  A reported strike of free milling quartz  on the edge'of the'town is causing some  excitumeut. There are no details to  hand yet.  The shaft on the Soverign is down 23  feet and is in solid ore. This claim is  barely a mile above tbe smelter and is  regarded as one of the best looking  properties in the district.  The new camp, 15 miles up stream,  where Horne Payne has bonded the  Apache and Waterloo groups, is now  known as the Monte Carlo camp. Numbers of men are going in there. J. Roup  is building a large hotel ut Waterloo  lauding.  SliOCAN.  Tbe fires on Ten-mile Creek have been  so bad that meu have had to leave the  district.  C. S. Eashdall and A. C. Fauquier  have gone into partnership as real estate  and mining brokers.  lt is reported that the ground sluicing  ou the Wonderful has resulted in finding  the lead, though other reports say that  the mineral discovered was only 'float,  but in boulders of considerable size.  ���������  The Rueccau comes to the fore again  with a strike of ruby silver assaying, so  it is said, 10,000 onnces. ������100,0-0 worth  of ore was taken out of this mine last  season-  Au extremely rich strike is reported  from the Cameroniau. This claim is  just across the divide at the head of  Lemon Creek. It is the property of J.  R. Cameron, T. Davis, J. T. Foley and  A. Cameron. Samples from the new  strike are said to assay $100 in gold and  _000 ounces in silver.  NEWS OF  THE   WORLD.

Mr. E. D. Carter, oue of the owners of  the Highland, is letting a coutract for  300 feet of tunneling on bis claim.  The teams of McGarvey'<fc English are  kept busy hauling ore aud concentrates  from the Skyline aud No. 1 mines.  Mr. Scott McDonald is in Rossland  this week looking**' after the interests ot  his company.' *  The prospects of this camp were never  better than at present, aud we expect to  have the busiest camp in Kootenay this  season.  Mr. Steveusou, of Philadelphia, owner  of the Highlander, and bis son, are iu  town. Mr. Stevenson intends to do some  work ou his property this season.  There have been quite a number of  strangers iu towu lately looking over  miuiug property, and there are a couple  of deals nearly completed, that will help  to make things" lively here, if they go.  through.  Mr. Geo. W. Filloon has brought his  wife and daughter to Aiusworth for the  summer. Mr. Filloon is interested iu  a number of claims round Ainsworth,  and is doing considerable work on the  properties which are showing up in good  shape.  The Aiosworth TradiugCo. are putting  lip_,"i~'0uiiding"'"to~be"~used���������us.astore.'  They have beeu doiug business iu Green  .Bros.' old store since the fire. H. Giege-  rich haslet the contract for excavating  for a large fireproof cellar 25x60 feet. ' D.  McLean has the contract aud expects to  have it finished in a few days.  Itis rumored that Her Majesty's eyesight is failing.  Cholera is raging at Cairo. 320 deaths  are reported.  Corueluis Vanderbilt has had a stroke  of paralysis and his conditiou is critical.  Ry a railway ' collision near Omaha  twenty-eight people were killed and fifty  oue injured.  After a struggle lusting over forty  years the Deceased Wife s Sister bill  has passed the House of Lords.  M. Faure, President of France, was  shot at last Tuesday while attending the  races at Auteuil.   He was not hurt.  It is announced that after the  naval manoeuvers, the Duke cand  Duchess of York will go to Australia  on board the cruiser Blenheim, the  fastest cruiser in the British navy.  The enormous unarmored ��������� cruiser  Terrible, recently built on the Clyde for  the British Navy, maintained a speed nf  20 knots an hour on her recent maiden  trip from Glasgow to Portsmouth, and it  is asserted that her maximum speed was:  24 knots, which is remarkable, in view ot  her size and length���������14.200 tous, and 500  feet respectively. Not less remarkable  is the Terribfe's cafryiog capacity,  enabling her to steam 25.C00 miles without recoaling. Her sister ship, the  Powerful, is soou to be iu commission,  and theu the Biitish admiralty may claim  to hold the world's record in this class of  vessels.  The visit of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Boston to  London has been the greatest success.  The reception accorded them surpassed  anything in point of genuine hearty  en ihusiistu in thehistory of the country.  On all sides from the Queen and Prince  of Wales, down to the poorest ot* the  masses, the hand of goodt'ellowship  has been loyally ext**nded to the visitors who, as distinctly stated by the  Prince, were not received as foreigners,  Hut as brothers from across the sea.  But there has been a numerous feature,  in tbe proceedings which it will do no  harm to record. When the Ancients  .were enlertaiped in the Royal Orangery at Windsor on Wednesday, many  ofthe ladies were anxious to obtain  souvenirs of the occasion, arid persuaded the waiters to sell them knives  and forks. Consequently, the waiters  did a thriving trade.'-'-They charged  tive 'shillings each tor common steel  knives, and it now develops that these  knives were the property of the contractor at Windsor who supplied the  feast, and that they were not used inside the castle.

Itis his intention to remain in Loudon  about six weeks, then visit America with  bis wife. He will returu to Euglaud and  settle in London to take charge of a  gold fields company's business.  " I shall try," said Hammond, "io  divert English capital to the United  States."  The air of South Africa was a little too  stroug for Mr. Hammond's nerves.  SOUTH AFRICAN REBELLION.

Ward,  the Bunk of  Friday from  out Cariboo.  -lining Journal.)  general   manager   of  British Columbia, lului'iied  nn extended trip through-  Mr. Ward was accompanied on his trip by Mr. S. Tiugley of the  Biitish Columbia Fxpress Compuny,  who, by his intimate iicqnniutuLce with  Cariboo, was able to take Mr. Ward  through this immense section of country  with the least possible loss of time. Mr.  Ward said that in general he fouud Caii-  boo prosperous, more so tha'i he hud  anticipated ; that the mining interests were assuming vast proportions, and in his judgment a railroad  should be built into this vast undeveloped empire, which possessed such  wonderful resources. Such a development would follow the building of oue as  would soon put the upper country on a  level with any1 known country. Mr.  Ward visited Queensnelle, liaikevville,  Stanley, spent a day at tbe Forks, was  at the 150, Soda Creek and various other  small points aud the quautity of freight  uow beiug forwurded spoke for the  general prosperity of these places. At  the Cariboo a constant cannonading,  shooting boulders in one or the other of  the pits was in progress, the two mom-  tois playing 'first in one pit while the  boulders were fired in the other then the  water turned ou to tbe pit where tbe  firiug had beeu done. Amalgam  galore is seen in the flumes of the  great mine, and while Mr. Ward  says any one can weil understand after seeing the miue that it will  uot be at its greatest for several years,  yet enough is uow shown to satisfy one of  the immense value of the property. Mr.  Ward was unable on this trip Lo visit the  Horsefly owing to lack of time. The  compauy, Mr. Ward said, does not co .-  template starting branch banks in auy  part of Cariboo at present, but will do  so as soon as iu their judgement the busiuess outlook will justify so doiug.  Lillooet was visited on their returu aud  a good word for that section was spoken  by Mr. Ward. He spoke of the distance  the Wright party are transporting their  machinery, nearly GOO miles from Ashcroft, the nearest railway. Of Quesnelle  lake, it is, he was informed, nearly or  quite 200 miles long aud surrounded with  gold-bearing streams and mountains  which but comparatively few white 'meu  had ever visited. The lake is deep  enough to Hoar, any vessel built. This  vast and comparatively unexplored section lying north of Bakerville, aud  vurious other sections would, if a rail  road were built iuto the country, soon be  as well known perhaps as is the famous  Kooteuay country, which without railroads would still be a comparatively  unknown camp.

It will be some time before Nelson  forgets the fair Eloise Fellows and ber  music. If the ear loaes its recollection  of her delicate notes there are many  manly bosoms that will' throb nt - the  memory of those" violet eyes. But a  greater than she is coming. Tt is true  that .the performer is ouly a man, and  au old one, but he has the genius, more  powerful than winning eyes,' that holds  the world, iu thrall. Remeiiyi's violin  has charmed- all Europe, where he is  great among the' greatest. Nelson is  indeed fortunate that arrangements have  been made by whicli the ��������� great player  will come here. The Oddfellows have  taken the matter up and have" guaranteed a substantial sum. The public must  see that their enterprise is uot allowed to  sutler.     *   .  The artistes who accompany Herr  Remenyi are all first-class performers,  and the concert which Nelson will go to  hear on Saturday, Sth August,'will certainly be the best that has ever been  Riven in the upper country of I_. C-  00MPANY TINANOE.  The annual report of the B. C. Board  of Trade report deals largely with mining  matters The following extract'from it  is worth reading : "Attention is directed to the piineiple upon*'which some  mining companies are formed. The system of capitalizing slightly developed  mineral claims for large sums of money*  and selliug the stock "at a . small percentage of the par value is, hi' case of the  liquidation of the company, fraught  with serious consequences to the holders  and in any event prejudicial to the proper development of the- mine. The laws  of British Columbia are opposed to a  company selling its stock at a discount,  yet these have been -evaded in the case  of some mining vent arcs. Discontinuance of this practice and compliance  with the provincial laws will' be some  guarantee that companies are formed for  the purpose of working the mines instead  j of unduly enriching the promoters ot the  | schemes. ' The incoming council should  I look into this matter, and, if necessary,  bring it to the notice of the provincial  government with the view of remedial  egislation.  BRITISH COLUMBIA IN LONDON.

A STRANGE CASE  ! Lord Graitisford   told liis love story.    Sha  | had charmed him  from the flrst, he said,  and now he loved her.    Would she  .  _i rnnrm-ifT.  *Y   LOUISE CHANDT.KR MOULTON  (Copyright' 1895.)  The flies were so very busy. No doubt,  is they buzzed in and out of the open  window, they thought they were accomplishing a vase deal, though it did not  seem so to the young couple who looked  ���������n. Perhaps there are eyes that watch us  ���������eyes to which our little ambitions and  achievements seem as trivial, as inconsequent, a.s the busy flies seem to us.  The May afternoon was more than  warm���������it was hot. Summer had hurried  Into the world, unexpected and uninvited.  Perha.s that was what made Jasinyn  Meredith lend a little pink ear to something she had resolved, over and over, that  she would not hear���������the passionate, illoyi-  cal, altogether absurd, love-making ofa  young fellow who would not have taken  his university degree till a month later  on. He was 21. to be sure, and she only  18; but at 18 a girl believes herself already  a woman.  She listened ; and then she said with a  ���������mile:  "Why, you are a boy!"  "A wise boy," he answered, "who knows  su'ough to love you; and who will have all  .the longer time in which to love you, because he begins early."  "I'm glad you are to be a lawyer," she  Answered, somewhat irrevelantly, as it  teemed 'to Robert Marsh.  "Why?" he ventured.  "Because I now see that yon have, after  ���������11, a logical mind. Your powers of argument might be thrown away in any other  profession." And then she added: "lt  takes a good while to get admitted to the  bar."  "It shan't take very lorig in my case,"  be answered, "if you will promise me my  reward for making haste."  "Oh! yes," she said, "I will come to  court and hear your first plea."  That!" he cried, a.little scornfully.  'No, I want you to iistea in private to my  Irst argument, and be convinced by it."  "Ah, but you are not a lawyer yet���������you  must wait.".  "Vou can keep me waiting as long as  you please���������it is for you to say���������but I have  told you that I love you. You can't get  away from that. I'll trust you to remember, and when any other man tells you the  same story, I���������I will be his judge. You  .���������"hall think of my love and my words, and  you shall ask yourself whether he loves  you as well."  Ja.si_.yn smiled a little at this outburst,  *ud then she said, with an air of sweet  tolerance: "Dream your dream, gentle  youth ; it may keep you from some worse  folly." .  "And you will not even be here for class  day?"  "No, we sail on Saturday. My mother  is half English by birth and more than  half at heart. She is siuhing for May fair.  We shall go to New York to-morrow."  "And this is good-bye?"  He looked for a moment into her eyes.  His lips were athirst for hers���������but he  knew her too well to venture on anything  she would have the right to resent. He  contented himself with a hand clasp; but  there was a tone in his voice" she would  not soon forget as he said: "Vou will remember!"  ��������� * * * * #  Three years went by, and still Mrs.  Meredith and her daughter had not returned to America. May and June found  them.in London. Later on they went to  Hamburg���������beloved of the Princeof Wales.  They divided their winters between Rome  .nd the Riviera. Robert Marsh heard of  their movements only from the kind newspapers, for Jasmyn had decreed that there  should he no correspondence. It would  hinder him in his studies, she said, and  ihe had no time for it. Shu thought of  hint, now and then, and wondered a little  whether���������as she put it to herself���������he was  _s foolish as ever. In fact, she thought of  him most often at the times when she  ���������hould have thought of him least���������when  ionic other man appeared inclined to tell  her the old story.  She was a social success, even in London,where there are so many competitors;  -butshe-deftly-Rianaged-toavoid proposals  for the most part;.and, when she had to  say no, to say it so gently as to make no*  energies. Her mother had not interfered  hitherto. Mrs. Meredith was too wise a  woman not to hasten slowly; but now' the  time seemed to her to. have come when a  lon-iti-Iaw would be desirable.  "You are 21, now,"  she said to Jasmyn.  "Yes, Munisie. Of course you can easily  remember my birthday, since you also are  a Mayflower."'  ."Yea, and a year before I was 21 I hau  married your father. He never caused me  but oue sorrow, and that was when he  died." I wish you 'as happy a lot as my  own, and I think you are old enough to  - marry."  Jasunvn lifted her pretty eyelids in such-  wise that they asked a question.  "-Yen," her mother answered musingly.  "Perhaps you have not seen, but T,0who  have lived-twice as long as you, can see  clearly, that Lord Guinsford is only wait-  lug his opportunity to ask you to be Lady  "Gainsford.'.' ...  ',"Tliat old. fellow!" cried" Jasmyn irre-.  rercntly.  "He is thirty-nine," said Mrs. Meredith,  minting. "That does not seem so venerable,, to most of the world as it seems to  you. Do you see anything else in him to  complain of?" *  "I haven't thought.   Why should 1.    He'  Is very well; I suppose, but"! see no reason  why I should care for him niore.than for  Another." -  "Ali, well; you must know; him better."  And the opportunity was not long in  ,-Coniing. 'It seemed as'if fate were on tha  side of his lordship. Wherever the Merediths went they were sure to meet him���������  and he let it be seen clearly enough that it  was for Jasmyn's sake ho had come. He  did not trouble himself to dance with anyone else. He was at her side when she  rode jn the park, and if she went to h  ..garden party there he'was also! ' Jasmyn  was flattered, naturally. To receive, without seeking, what-a score of other girls  '.tought vainly, had a distinct charm of its  . own, and Lord Gainsford had the advantage of being old euoiigh to know the  world and its ways. He was distinctly  high bred. He was handsome iu his own  way, and manly, as the best type of Englishman always is. Why she was not in  love with Jiim Jasmyn. herself could not  have told you. Indeed she thought tbat  *ery possibly she should be later on.  One night they were sitting out a dance  whicli she had promised him. He had  persuaded her to go into the conservatory  tn.tead of dancing, and she sat on a low  seat over which some strange foreign plant  leaned. An odor that seemed like bicenso  burned at the shrine of some old-time god  ball intoxicated her.   _W_i<_ there and thea  ��������� At that very instant it seemed to her as if  she heard a voice from far, oh, so far,  away���������a voice that  said:  "Wait!"   And  I just then, before she had spoken at all, her  1 partner for the next dance appeared and  Lord Gainsford said, with that cool sclf-  ] possession that belonged to his age aud  j his'rank: "I shall see you.to-morrow."  ;    That   night  sleep did  not come to Jas-  ��������� myn. She lay with wide-open eyes, va-  ! guely wondering. What should'she say  | to Lord Gainsford ? Could she love him���������  j and why not ? Would she be happy as his  , wife ?   How much there would be to make  her so!  Then suddenly it seemed to her as if the  room opened its windows  to the stars and  tlie infinite night, and  she looked far, far  off, as   perhaps   we all   shall  look  when  death has taken us by the hand and led us  I far away from what we now call life.   She  j knew that her vision had gone beyond the  j sea and that it was a room in New York in  i which she saw a young man writing.   He  had just turned a page.   She did not know  how his letter began, but she read these  words:  "I am twenty-four uow aud you are  twenty-one. You cau uo longer call me a  boy. I was admitted to the bar a year ago.  I have succeeded so well that in October [  shall make my first important plea. Remember that you promised to hear it. I  will cross the sea and bring you back iu  time. I. shall be with you almost as soon  as this letter. I have obeyed you hitherto  in keeping silence. I write now because I  wish you to know before we meet that I  am unchanged."  And when she had read thus far it seemed to her that suddenly the windows that  had opened to the vastness of the night  were closed and she was alone.  What did it all mean? She was not  asleep. It was no dream. Plainly as if  she had held the sheet in her own hands  she had read those written words. Plainly  as if he had been in the room with her she  had seen Robert Marsh. What had made  this possible? Could it be-that she had  cared for him all along more than she  knew? And he would be on his way to  her���������uerhaps almost at once. She should  see hiin, hear him, understand, perhaps,  by what unknown power this vision had  been vouchsafed. How should she answer  Lord Gainsford to-morrow? Then, once  more, as if from some farthest star, she  heard, as she had heard in the conservatory, the one word���������"Wait!"  Yes, she would wait. She would decide  nothing until she knew. She turned on  her side and drew a long, calm breath, and  then sleep, the delinquent, kissed her  parted lips and led her at last into dreamland.  The next day Lord Gainsford pleaded his  own cause, but he pleaded in vain.  "If you will wait two weeks," Jasmyn  said, "I. will answer youthen. If I say  anything to-day it must be 'no.' I do not  feel that I understand myself. Will you  give me time, or shall it end here?"  Of course he gave her time. He turned  to Mrs. Meredith. Mrs. Meredith was his  senior by tnree years, therefore she was a  safe as well as a sympathetic confidante.  The two weeks were not over, in fact  only nine days had passed, when a letter  came to Jasmyn iu a hand she used to  know. She opened it. She read the first  page-and then she turned the leaf, arid  thero she saw the very sentences she had  read when the windows of her maiden  chamber opened into the infinite night,    o  And that same day Robert Marsh followed his letter. Then Jasmyn Meredith  knew for the first time her own heart's  secret. The love that was strong enough  to conquer time and space and speak to  her across the estranging sea was the love  of her own life, as'well as of her lover's.  The next day she told her mother .that  she had made up her mind. Naturally  Mrs. Merepithdid not like it, but she was  helpless. John Meredith had left his fortune to be equally divided between his  daughter and his wife, and after Jasmyn  was twenty-one she was absolutely her  own mistress. Mrs. Meredith would fain  have been mother-in-law to a lord; but  there was nothing to be said against  Robert Marsh, so she quietly resigned herself to the inevitable. ' ���������  "You deserve," she said to Jasmyn, with  a little vexed laugh," "that I should marry  Lord Gainsford myself." And that is pre-  ri*i������lv what she did six months later.  __sr_Ei_so_Lsr  Planing Mill!  Doors,   Sashes, Turned  Work,  Brackets i and {Office  {   Fittings.  SATISFACTION   CtlARAlMTEEP.

Tbe publication of tlie SuiiiUry  K.guluMons in the (J.i/.elte has been  quickly followed by the arrival of Or.  Watt lo have them enforced. It- may  probably be safely said that not t'*:i  persons in Nelson have so much as  seen a copy of these regulations, when  down comes the Inspector and orders  existing diains to be destroyed new  ones laid down and an entirely new  system of sanitation to be adopted.  If these orders were to be complied  with the entire population ol* Lhe town  would have to spend lhe next, three or  four weeks in di^'hiK new drains.  However praisworUiy the object  may be, the authorities are not pi"-  feeding the right way to get these  desired reforms adopted. First of all  they should supply every householder  with a copy in ordert.bat they might nt  least know what they have got to do.  Secondly, if only as an example, and  by way of taking the beam out of ils  own eye, before attempting to remove  the mote from its brother's the government should do away with Nelson's  great disgrace, Ihe box flume that  ���������"11ns down Ward Creek, and should  replace it. with a proper brick or stone  culvett carried out to low water level.  Having done -this the authorities  would have a better footing frun  which to lecture the taxpayers.  Of the .advisability of adopting the  various systems laid down by tbi-  Regulalions there can be no -question.  Their cost may be considered as insurance against the financial trouble  of doctor's bills and the mental sorrow  that sickness and death bring with  them. In the case of certain epidemics  a wooden drain is more dangerou.  Ihan the shell that bursts in the serried ranks of an army. 11 periodically  spreads disease iind death around it  and appears never to lose its virulent  qualities, It is rightly regarded by  modern sanitary engineers as worse  than an open gutter. The system re-  coiiimended for house sanitation,  where connection with a drain is impossible, is the best .that exists. ll  however has two faults. It entails expense and depends on individual carefulness for its effectiveness. The . regulations with regard  to the keeping  "of.cow-sV^'gs. etc'a'fe-very" necessary"  We have" more chan . once heard  complaints    made  about, the   former  -siiid the abuse of the latter is plain to  anyone who has a nose,  Now, as far- as Nelson is concerned  the Government Agent is Allah and  our only policeman is his prophet. In  other   words    Captain    Fitzstiji'u.s.  -will have to administer the regulations  hy the aid pf the inspectorship of "Mit.  John Milks. Now it' may safely In-  said, without'for a moment casting  any reflection on- these gentlemen,  "that it the alf air is to be'left to them,  no one need, trouble any further in the  "matter, and the regulations as far as  we are concerned -need never have  been passed. This is not. to be'al.tri-  buted to any disinclination on the  officials'part to poke their noses into  other peoples affairs, nor to any lack  of   knowledge-    of     recent    sanitary  - science, but to the common and everyday reason that they have a great deal  too much to do already. Dr. Watt  will no doubt enjoy a yearly trip to  Nelson at the expense of the taxpayers and will be annually consumed  with official mortification atthe entire  disregard of the Regulations.  But they ought to be carried out all  the same.  A POLICEMANS LOT.      -  We have alluded elsewhere to the  numerous calls on the time of our  local constable. Primarily his business  is to be in bodily evidence on the street  as an outward and visible sign of the  majesty of British law. and as a protection to the subjects of the Queen  against all brawlers, marauders and  other breakers of the peace.' As it is,  his time is largely occupied as' messenger for the government offices, and to  further debar him from properly carrying out his legitimate functions, three  short sentence prisoners from liossland  were recently confided to his care.  The inhabitants of Nelson of course  appreciate the compliment which im  plies that, their policeman is. a superfluity and is only to lie used as a  guardian of liossland drunks, but with  many thanks to the authorities for  their high opinion of us we plel'er to  have our policeman for our own purposes. We ��������� have before pointed oui  the total unfitness of our lock-up for  use as a gaol. It is unnecessary to go  into details again. Sufficient to say it  contains none of the necessary appliances and the duty occupies neatly the  whole of the constables time.  ' While we" are on this subject, we  should like' to dr;iw the attention of  the Government Agent in his capacity  of Governor ol' the Nelson Gaol, to the  fallen rock at the foot of lhe cliff over  against the hospital. Duriug the  course ^if their sojourn with us the  three unruly liosslanders might be  most excellently employed in breaking  up the said rock into road metal, which  when spread on the'street leading to  the wharf would render.it passable in  the wet weather. Of course if there  are any Cottonwood trees that want  trimming or bits of stick that require  picking up in the government back  yard, we would not for a moment suggest the neglect of such important  duties, but only if the incarcerated victims have more |l!me on their hands  than can be usefully occupied in gardening, the stone breaking business  would atoncesave them fiom brooding too much on their own misfortunes  and add to'fche convenience and comfort of the citizens of Nelson     .  PEACE HATH ITS VICTORIES.  lt is not for us in this peaceful end  of the nineteenth century to shout  ourselves hoarse at the triumph of some  General returning victorious after a  brilliant campaign. Nor does the nation fall down and worship one man,  as it did a hundred years ago when  NiCLsoN alone stood between British  fieedom and the designs of Napoleon.  But, just fifty years ago a quiet and  studious youth, at the age of twenty-  two, became a professor at the University of Glasgow. The benefits that  accrue to a nation from the skill of its  generals or Iho valor of its admirals  are usually accompanied with terrible  carnage, though the sobs of the widow  and fatherless are drowned in -the  cheeis of the crowd. But to Silt  William Thomson the nation and the  world owe many victories over inert  matters, that besides aiding us- in our  every day occupations and business,  h-ivv lu'i'ii the direct cause of saving  thousands of lives.. Fifty years ago  William Thomson became piofessor  or natural philosophy at ^Glasgow aud  al once became known as an .investigator of boldness and originality in a  line of scientific research directly bearing on industrial enterprise. liis  earlier work, was connected jwith the  mathematical theory of heat and electricity, and lhe made great strides in  the transmission of electric" signals.  It was largely owing to hiin that the  apparently insuperable difficulties that  attended (and stopped) the working of  the first Atlantic cable, were'overcoine.  To those that go down to the sea* in  ships .Sih William Thomson's Compass and Deep Sea Sounding Gear are  familiar. Navigation has been largely  simplified and robbed of many of its  dangers   by    these    two   inventions.  Atthe t i-eont jubilee of the professor, now Loud Kiclvin, in Glasgow,  seientists-froni all-over-the--world--as-  seinbled lo do him honor. It is a te-  markable fact that in.his speech of  thanks to the learned assembly this  hero of science.declared that after all  his labours he knew no more of the  real nature ..of electricity, magnetic  force, cir of the relations between ether  ponderable matter, or chemical affinity than he''did when he first faced his  class fifty years ago. L  - :^      NOTES.  . The following is a very .lucid explanation by the Philadelphia Ledger.of  a subject which is at present, occupying a good deal of attention;���������"Il  means in practice that sixteen ounces  of silver should'-'be held-as worth as  much as one'ounc-e of gold. One ounce  of gold, American coin standard, of  fineness���������that is, M) par is of pure gold  to"100 of alloy���������will coin in gold dollars  $1S.00.- Sixteen ounces of silver, American coin standard of fineness���������that  is,-900 parts of pure silver .to. 100 of  alloy, at the rate of-112", grains to the  dollar (the weight of the present standard silver dallar)���������will coin $18.(50 in  silver dollars. These sixteen ounces of  silver can be bought in the 111-11 ketsof  the world today for $9.91. Thei e would,  therfore, be a profit of SS.Gti 011 an investment of $9,91, being about. S7 pt-i*  cent., if a holder of silver could lake it  to the mint, and coin it without charge  into silver dollars. The advocates of  free coinage favor a law that will allow  any holder of silver bullion���������or. in fact_  silver of any kind (as the latter can  readily be melted into, bars)���������to have  the rightto take thesame to any .mint  of the United States and convert it  into silver coin free of charge. It is  easy to see that - if this Were done it  would not,be long, with free coinage,  before the country would he flooded  with silver coins, and the very large  profit to the owners of silver mines  would quickly start to work' mines at  present idle, to the immense advantage of the mine owner."  riioi t:ssio\AL -..un..  01 EO.
