Fitzstubbs  Will not return to West Kootenay in the  capacity of Geld Commissioner. His  friends will be pleased'to learn tbat the  government is.not indifferent concerning  hia many years of faithful service and  will provide him with a suitable-billet.  The position to-which Captain Fitzstubbs  moy be appoiuted will probably necessitate his residence io Koolenay. At the  preseut time, it is impossible to learn  who has beeu appointed to the office  made vacant by the Captain's resignation.  '-- A Jnll  lor Xelson.

The Cabinet is llescrtcri  by   Every   Member ol'llie Legislature Except Tliree.  Victoria. MariAi 19.���������(Special). There  wns nn exceedingly interesting debate iu  the house yesterday on Adams motion  for the second reading of the Alien Labor  bill which provides that in all private  acts asking for special priveleges, u clause  shall be iuserted lo the affect that no  Chinese be employed on work contemplated., by those acts. ."Walkem declared  "that Adams'was trimming for the next  election aud was making a grand stand  play for the vote of the laboriug element  of Cariboo.  Hon. Mr. Pooley, president of thc  council, voiced tbe sentiments of the  government iu a carefully set speech.  He considered the act au illiberal one  and a direct interference with free labor,  which if passed" would put a .damper ou  capital coming into this province and  consequently work a-lasting injury to all  who earned a liviugbymanual labor.  Mr. Foster roasted .the government in  a - long and "wed worded speech. .He  declared.-that the sympathies of the government were always, for corporations  and monopolies and against the poorer  classes.  Hon. Col Baker thought it would be  just as cousistant to exclude Italiaus or  Frenchmen.  Kellie, member for northwest Kootenny, talked to the gallery but he heartily  favored the exclusion of Chiuese as much  as possible.  Pooley subsequently explained that  he never advocated the introduction  iof Chinese to this country;    ;What he  ���������/.did. say'was-that-such  legislation as  .t,was' now.-proposed .would  discourge  the introduction of capital  in British  Columbiu..

Braden represents Victoria aud is  supposed to generally-do-as he is told by  Premier Turner. .Captain Irving, member for Cassiar, is the general manager  of the Canadian Pacific Navigation company, one of the richest corporations in  the Province. R. G.-Rithet is one of the  richest men in Victoria and is interested  iu a number of salmon canneries which  employ scores ot Chiuese.  Claims  near M.-ihno lo  lie  "Worked When  the Snow Disappears.  The placer gold excitement at Salmo  has abated somewhat, as nearly all the  ground in that' immediate vicinity  has been staked and the owners are  now waiting until the thaw sets in so  that they may lcariiwhat their claims  contain. . Tho original locators extended their investigations to somo  extent a few days since but did not  liud any very rich gravel, although  every pan showed a great' may colors.  It is believed that all the claims along  thc old river bed will show pay dirt,  and when the snow is oil' the ground  placer niining will begin in earnest.  The finding of placer gold at Salmo  has caused prospectors generally to  pay more attention to the streams,  antl already two or three good locations are reported on the Salmon river.  KILLED  BY THE TRAIN.  A Prospector Dashed to Death by it  Train on the Nelson & Tort  Sheppard Railway.  Wm. Bryan, a prospector, was run  over by the Nelsou aud Fort Sheppard  train at 3:15 o'clock last Wednesday  afternoon about a half mile south pf  North Fork. The body was brought to  Nelson. -The jury called'Ly the coroner,  br.*"Ar������iiiirJ rendered a verdict of accidental death and completely exonerated the  railroad company and its employes from  any blame.  From the -testimony gathered at Ihe  inquest, it appears that Bryan had been  on a protracted spree but according to  the story of his partner, Gns Anderson,  was.sober on Tuesday. Since that time  Anderson had uot seen him aud the supposition-is that deceased celebrated the  17th of Ireland and while walking along  the track at tbe point mentioned, stopped  to lake a rest. The testimony of the  .engineer was to.the effect that, when lhe  eDgine was rounding a curve, witness  saw Bryan reclining on a snow bank  wiih his feet.stretched across the rails.  Every effort was made to stop the train  -but-the slippery-rails carried ita hundred  yards beyond where the mail was lying,  When he was picked up his skull was  fractured aud life was exliucf. The snow  plow on the engine had thrown Bryan's  feet high upou the snow bauk and caused  his head to slip down under the cars  where one of the oil boxes or steps had  fractured the skull.  Deceased lived in a cabin on the line  of the railroad, about three and oue half  miles from where he met his death. His  burial took place at Nelson on Thursday  afternoon.

C. .Giimblf, the engineer for the  Dominion Government with headquarters  at Victoria was here.for a few* days during the week. He lias been "superintending the work of improvement of navigation ..of the Columbia "river at the  narrows.  The steamers plying betwepn' Arrowhead and Robson have "lately experienced  much difficulty from the exceptiou ally-  low water, although1 they have succeeded  in making fairly good connections.  - The money appropriated by the federal  authorities for the improvement ot the  river between Robson and Trail is not  being spent there as it has been deemed  more-advisable to build wing dams-at  the narrows. A force of men have been  employed doing this for the past two  weeks and so far the result ha3 been  very beneficial.  PUBLIC READING ROOM.  A I'nrly .Vine, Creek'Properly is Prove.l lit  lie Valuable..  Ihe Maple Leaf mineral claim on  Forty Nine creek has surprised many old  timers who looked upon it as a worthless  pile of quartz rock. It was located at  the same time as the Poorman miue, and  after passing through various hnnds was  sold to E. G. Traversy for a few dollars.  The last owner had faith in his new acquisition and paying no attention to the  jeers iind jokes of his friends prosecuted  development work in the miue until he  struck pay ore. "He*"'associated himself  with eastern capitalists and a company  was organized to acquire the property.  The stock is now quoted at 11 cents-  The lead is.five feet aud lhe pay streak  from S to 12 inches rnuning from S20 to  to S250 in free milling gold. A large  block of stock has beeu sold aud it is the  intention to erect a stamp- mill on the  mine Ibis year.  At one period of his ownership Mr.  Traversy offered the entire mine to. A. J.  Marks, of this city, for 8130 and be refused it. This week Mr. Marks bought  35C0 shares oE the stock for 11 cents per  share.   .  NELSON Vd. SANDON.  . Nelson's Library to lie Considerably Improved by the Addition or Sew Hooks.  At the last monthly meeting of those  interested in the Nelson reading room  and library the board of management  devoted fifty dollars from the proceeds  of the recently held concert towards  the -purchase of books, and drew up a  list which will be purchased immedi-  utelv.   The list", includes works of hisr  Hockey   Teams  or Knelt   Town Will   Piny  in Sandon Tonight.  The members of the Nelson hocl_ey  team left for Sandon yesterday afternoon  and will play a match game tonight with  the team located there. The members  of the "Nelson team who made lhe trip  were, II. T. Irvine, Wm. Duncan, Thos.  Duncan, Frank Smith, S. i-reijkler. Chas.  Hipperson, William Thurman, Charles  Donogh and Jack McKanday. Ed. McCarthy accompanied tlie boys as their  mascot. He claims to iiave been responsible- for the victory at Kaslo because he  carried a rabbit foot and a queeu of  hearts iu his pocket.

LAKE GENERAL HOSPITAL,    j  Tlie   Society   lias   Afforded   Much   Kelitf  mid Assistance to  many IFufor-     Y'J  lunate Invalids. , *������������������'    ���������__?  The annual report of the president 6t.  Kootenay Lake .General Hospital Society;*  compiled by Mr. G. O. Buchanan, shows  that since March 21, 1896, severity  patients, of whom forty two were medical and twenty-eight were surgicul, have  been treated at the hospital. Besides  these, twenty-nino persons, mostly sub:  scribers, have been treated- as outpatients. Of those admitted to the  hospital; six have died, six are now in .be  institution and fifty eight have been  discharged. The greatest number of  patients in thc hospital at one time was  twelve, and the average stay was twenty-  seven days.  Of the 84410.98 which represents the  total receipts since the last annual meeting, $1500 was granted by the provincial  government. There are thirty-eight  subscribers each paying 810 annually.  The total expenditure for the past year  was 84152 which leaves' a cash balance of  $159.98 in the bank. President Buchanan estimates that the cash on hand and  iu sight, including the quarterly govern'  ment contribution due March 31, will,  approximately liquidate all liabilities at  that date.  The Board of Trustees has applied to  the Provincial government for an1 increase of the annual grant.for maiuten-  auce from $2000 to $_5000. The government has also been requested to donate  81500 towards the extension of the hospital, promising to supplement the donation, if made, with a substantial sum tb  be raised locally.  The eociety.is indebted.to the Ladies'  Aid. Society for a multitude of comforts  supplied to the house-keeping department of the hospital; to Dr. G. A. B. Hall  for his skillful and successful treatment  of patients; to Mrs. Blaueyfor her un--  tiring attention to duty; to Mr. Clements  for his faithful'performance as treasurer  and to Mr. Goepel who has gratuitously  audited the accounts of the society.  The work of the institution has doubled  during.the past year and if room is provided will dou'ble'srganr-duTmg-thCipte-'  sent year.  DR.' HALIi'silEPOJ.T. -  Dr. Geo. A. B. Hall's report to the  directors of the hospital is a carefully  prepared document and contains the following suggestions:���������  "The enlargement of the hospital is  absolutely necessary. The ventilation of  the preseut building, is another thing  that should be attended to before the  warm weather comes. The only means  of ventilating it at present is by the  windows; and in this way some of the  patients get too much air while others  don't get enough. Admitting patients is  something that should be considered. In  place of haviug it necessary for a person  lo have an order signed by two of the  directors. I-think a certificate from any  qualified physician should be sufficient,  providing the-physician-will be responsible for his patients fees while in the  hospital.  "2nd. Persons should not be admitted  as chaiity patients uutil they produce  sufficient evidence to show that tbey are  subjects forcharity. Such evidence should  be in writing from one good reliable person who is either personally known to  some of the directors or by reputation,  and also a certificate from the hospital  pbysisian certifying that the person is of  such health as tp require hospital, attention. It is not my desire to try and  keep anyone out of "tho hospital but  simply suggest this as a safeguard  against having tho hospital imposed  upon. Iu my opinion it is not beueticial  to the finances of the hospital to take  monthly subscribers at a $1.00 per month  nud give them treatment for the same if  they should require it.. By so doing you  get only that class of people who are not  physically strong aud many of these only  subscribe a few mouths in tho year when  they are most exposed."  services were cousidered extremely valuable and by his resignation that corporation loses a faithful and able oflieial.  The promotion of Mr. Marpole to the  position formerly held by Mr. Abbott  will afford that gentleman an opportunity  to further demonstrate the ability he is  conceded to possess in railway matters.  At the present time no information is  obtainable as to who will succeed Mr.  Marpole. The general supposition is  thnt no appointment will be made. It  may be tbat Assistant-Superintendent  Downey, who now has charge of the  main line of the C.P.R. between Vancou  ver and North Bend will work under the  direction of Mr. Marpole and extend his  supervision as fur east as Donald.  It is not improbable that an assistant-  Eurerintendent will be appointed for the  branch lines of the road in West Kootenay. with headquarters at Nelson.  BET HALF A MINE.  I.oeul Interest In llie Corbct-t'llzslnimons  Prize   Fight.  The people of Nelson manifested great  interest in the result of the Corbet-Fitz  simmons   prize   fight and considerable  money was wagered on the event.   The  news of Fitzsimmons victory was received  here about 2 o'clock on Wednesday aftei-  noon and was greeted with cheers_by the  crowd thnt had assembled to read the  bulletins which were posted as fast as  the progress of the contest could be taken*  from the wires.  Une of the most notable bets made  during the day was a half interest in the  Iron Chief claim on Rover, creek, owned  by J. Johnson nnd J. Jackson, against a  liplf interest owned by Mike Keeley.  The lntter thought that Fitz was the  champion gladiator and ns a result, he  now has full title to the claim.  A SHOOTING AFFRAY.

Brown of Beach Bay near Victoria, was  shot about 7 o'clock Inst evening by his  son-in-law, John Aiken, and will probably die. The wounded man has been  taken to the St. Joseph hospital. An  operation was performed this morning,  but the doctors were unable to locate  the bullet.

Coming  lo Koolenay.  A. prominent, railway official has informed the .Miner that a great "number  of people will immigrate to Kootenay  from. Puget-Sound and other- Pacific  Coast points as soou as the warm weather  sets iu.  He prophesies that fully -5,000 people  will come to this district from Tacoma  and Seattle. Agents of the transcbn5  tinental railway companies .,at St. Paul,  Chicago aud other eastern centers are  kept busy answering questions- concerning the British Columbia mines. It is  expected that travel from the eastern  Canadian and United States cities will  shortly become the heaviest on record.  MR. ABBOTT RESIGNS.  The General  Superintendent til" tin: C.I".  It.

Vancouver, March 20.���������[SpecialJ The  news ha3 just leaked out lhat Mr. Harry  Abbott has resigned his position as  general superintendent of the Pacific  division of the Canadian Pacific railway,  and that his resignation has been accepted by  the compauy.    He will probably  j be succeeded by   Superintendent' Mai-  | pole.    Mr. Abbott will cantinue to reside  ! at Vancouver.  i .    PROCLAIMED A CITY.  The  . Liciilciiniil-.-ovcruor    Publishes    a  Proclamation.  Victoria, March 20.���������(Special), The  British Columbia Gazette, just issued,  contains a proclamation by the lieutenant-governor stating that " the towns  Nelson.and Eossland are duly incorpor-  atedas cities..  Forty-four mining companies were  registered during the week. Most of  them are capitalized for 81,000,000.  Among the new incorporations is the  Simcoe Mining nnd Development company of Nelson.  P. E. Wilson, of Nelson, gives notice  in the Gazette of application to be  culled to practice in the law. courts of  British Columbia.  Mr. S. S. Fowler, engineer for the London and British Columbia Gold Fields,  has just returned fiom a trip to the  Wild Horse Creek district, and furnished  the Miner with much interesting information concerning the result of the  extensive development work thnt is being  done there. Since the principal discoveries were made in that locality it hns  been systematically nud extensively  prospected with the most satisfactory  results. Hundreds upon hundreds- of  claims have been located uutil the mountains of that viciuity have become as  thickly covered with stakes as those of  the Trail Creek district. The district is  one of great promise and bids fair to  equal any mining division in the Province  in the production of ores.  "The Ymir mine on Wild Horse  creek which is being developed by the  London <fc B. C. Gold Fields, L'd,  i.s now employing 20 men" said Mr.  Fowler. "Ib has a quartz lead 15 feet  wide carrying milling gold ore and a  considerable quantity of silver and  lead. Gold, however, is thc principal  value. So far, (KO feet of work has  been done, most of which is on the  vein. There are now over 500 tons of  ore on the dump ready for shipment.  Two miles north, is the Elise property  which has recently resumed operations  under the reorganization of the company and a considerable force of men  is employed. South of Wild Horse on  the west side of the railroad is the  Parker group and Tenessce, both of  which have forces of inen at work.  The Parker has a quantity of ore on  the dump ready for shipment.  "The new town of Quartz Creek is  building up rapidly and has about 40  buildings now. Men are coming in  every day seeking investments aud  the hotel accommodations are already  insufficient. The government has  practically.decided upon building two  bridges across the Salmon river; one  to the south near Quartz Creek and  the other, one and one-half miles to  the north which would be better  suited to the purposes.of Wild Horse  creek. Already there is sufficient ore  in sight to justify the building of eight  or ten miles of- wagon road up Wild  Horse creek and it seems probable that  the construction may "be undertaken  during the coining spring.* The  arrival and departure of .. a,  very large amount of mail matter  daily at Quartz Creek will necessitate n  post office at Quartz Creek and there  seems to be no doubt but that the ' bus  ness afforded at this place will justify  the establishment of an agent for the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway at this  point. The development iu this viciuity  and the various tributaries of Salmon  river from North Fork to Summit insures the attraction of much attention  during the coming seasou.  BRITAIN'S DIPLOMACY.

Tt produces fine  fruits and has a convenient port at Op-  podillo. Tt could be converted into a  strongly fortified station.  Echo De Paris expresses the hope  that the powers will refuse to permit  the transfer. <���������  London, March 19���������The 'acquisition  of the island of Pantcllaria by Great  Britain adds enormously to the Empire's strength in Mediterranean sea  which is particularly desirable in view  of thc existing troubles in Crete,     o  ..I .dill lur Hero lleiiiivortli.

The governments of British Columbia, past and present, have become so  notorious for the reckless manner in  which they have sacrificed the .people's interests for thc benefit of a few  favored speculators that the eastern  Canadian press, moved to utterance,  probably, by the single instance of the  B. C. Southern railway land grant, in  a number of instances, has roundly  denounced the entire policy. As an  instance, the following is quoted from  the Toronto "Evening Telegram," a  fearless, independant and generally  excellent newspaper:  "British Columbia's Govern -  1. ment is composed of and supported by men who have no  great public principle in common  The Government represents their  interests and the Opposition represents " the . element which,  does not get what it wants from'  the Government. It would be  better, a hundred times better,  for the people of British Columbia if the Government represented one party and the Opposition another. Then the. people  would have some choice between  the men who occupy office and  the men who aspire to otlice."  -Many reforms are needed.     Among  Lies and alliliations, could not do  boiler during the coming summer  than hold a convention at Nelson..  Thoso attending would then have an  opportunity to study and appreciate  the vast'iiess of the district's mineral  wealth, would meet many of the most  enterprising people of the Province  and ultimately formulate a platform  that would be instrumental in accomplishing the much needed reforms and  cause the adoption of a policy for  general welfare ofthe people.  In suggesting that the convention  be held in West .. Kootenay, the  Minkk is only prompted by a desire to  see delegates from every electoral division . become thoroughly familiar  with the district which -will be the  main source of public revenue a.s soon  as it is developed. The claims of Nelson are advanced because this city is,  in every respect, the center of the district.  The task of organizing a political  party which may, at no distant date,  assume the control of the affairs of the  Province is a serious undertaking.  'J_i_i_ MiNKi- simply suggests that a  convention be held, believing that in  so doing it reflects popular sentiment.  But it has no desire to presume further. If the progressive and better  element of electors will manifest a  reasonable interest in the matter,  there is no reason why great and lasting beneficial results may not be  obtained. This journal willingly opens  its columns to correspondence tending  to advance the interests of a convention and organization such as is herein  brief lly outlined. .It is to be hoped  that all opposed to the "moss back"  and pernicious principals that have  influenced the acts of the legislatures  of British Columbia in the past will  heartily join in the effort to obtain a  new regime.  the number are there-establishment  of electoral divisions on a niore equitable basis, the management of the  departmental 'offices- at Victoria and  the direction ofthe London 9_lice of  the agent-general. The British Pacific scheme, by .no'means a dead issue,  must be killed, and the coal barons of  Vancouver Island must be made to  pay their share of thc taxes. Of equal  equal importance'with the above mentioned features is the adoption of an  ;ul equate---really adequate���������mining  and raihvay policy.  For some time passed the Minisic  has persistants advocated the drawing of party lines and the fori mil i/.a-  tions of platforms for the next provincial election, lt has done so in the  firm belief that a better government  than -the present one would be the  result. The idea is beginning to find  ��������� favor with the press of Koolenay and  a majority .of the up-country districts,  although' the Dunsmuiiv and other  corporate infiiieiiccs have sufficiently  dominated the Coast newspapers,  .excepting a few. to keep them silent  regarding the inaugeration of other  methods than the rotten System of  village politics which now prevails to  thedeteriment of the'common people.  - Those-opposed io the government  already realize the great importance  of thorough organization, and, under  a new and strong leader, will probably  Contest the next election upon a care-  ' fully prepared platform. Those who  will continue to support the present  administration will, iu that event.  have to adopt similar lines.  As West Kootenay is receiving  Universal att"n tinn "and will continue  to do so for many years to come, the  Progressionists, as the new political  element in British Columbia may  be   termed,     regardh >>.<_     of    former  EXPLORATION CONCESSIONS  The recent action of the Ontario  government, by. which a South African  exploration company is given the  exclusive right to prospect 100 square  miles in the heart of the'Rainy river  district, is a very questionable method of developing a region that gives  promise of mineral wealth.  In South Africa, especially thc Transvaal, where the Boer and Kaffir population is unenterprising and indifferent  to the mining industry, and the explorer is confronted by many natural  difficulties, such a policy might have  its advantages when viewed from a  public standpoint. But in Canada the  condition is different. The people of  this country arc energetic and disposed to engage in mining, and as  there is no portion of the southern  half of the Dominion that is more  than ordinarily difficult to prospect or  develop, the sitting aside of large  areas for the especial benefit of a  single corporation cannot be considered-other���������than���������a-blow-at-individual-  enterprise,  The histories of the great mining  camps of this country and the United  States conclusively fleinonstate that  that recent creation of the promoter's  fertile brain���������the exploration company  ���������was unccossary.- to discover-the  various mineral districts of the West.  From thc wilds of the Yukon to thc  Sierras of New Mexico, with'little but  his indomitable courage, the hardy  prospector, without a single exception,  discovered the' great dividend paying  mines. When the difficulties of each  region are compared, the.brush thickets of 'well-watered and undulating  Ontario are as nothing to the precipitous mountains of Kootenay, the  arctic climate of Cariboo or the arid  wastes of Arizona.  It is to be hoped that other exploration syndicates will not be encouraged  by the success of the South African  company in Ontario, to the extent of  wasting their time in endeavoring f0  obtain similar, concessions in.British  Columbia.  London market will not be seriously  prejudiced against Kootenay by thc  recent exploits of certain new Vancouver and British Columbian companies introduced here."  Thc directors of tho Ivooten.-ty Lake  General Hospital have petitioned tbe  government for an increase of the  annual appropriation i'or thc hospital  from $2000 to $'.000, and for an additional $ 1,500 with which to extend  and improve the accomodation for  patients'. The request should be  granted without delay as there is.no  worthier or better conducted institution in the Province. Great credit is  due those kind-hearted and charitably  disposed persons who have so generously contributed their time and  money towards making thc hospital  such a great success.

The pajanic effort is respectfully  declined, dear Evangeline. When a  poem on spring begins to crystallize  fiir down in the amethystine depths of  your soul, sit on it. Tni_ Miner has  two or three poets chained up in the  collar who can dash oil" rhymes like  that at the rate of a mile a minute.  That is the reason ,we keep them  chained.  The cities of Victoria and Vancouver  are discussing the advisability of  offering bonuses for thc establishment  of smelters within or near their respective city limits. Where do they  expect to obtain an ore supply; surely  not from Kootenay? Before the  elapse of another year the shipping of  oro from this district will be a matter  of the past. By that time the smelters  of Kootenay, particularly those of  Nelson, will require every pound of ore  produced from the mines of southeastern British Columbia. It is not  unlikely that Montana and Idaho ores  will also find a market here.  "The greatest aggregation of high-  class talent that was ever got together," is the refreshingly modest  announcement of a vaudeville company that is soon to afflict this city.  We love cheerful liars in Nelson, and  a good many of us will therefore put  up two-bits to see this galaxy of untamed prevaricators.  It is safe to say that there are not a  dozen men in this city who didn't  know just how the great fight was  going to come out. The "l told you  so" individual is abroad even in Bogus-  town, where the residents don't  usually claim to know anything except  as to squatters rights.  Colonel John Hay, recently appointed by President McKinley as U.S.  ambassador to the Court of St. James,  is not unknown to many Englishmen  who have read his "Little Breeches,"  "Jim Bludsoo" and other excellent  "Pike County Ballards" with much  appreciation.  As the time for the city election  draws near tlie voters of Nelson appreciate more and more the necessity  of-clecting a-Board-of-Aldermen-.vhieh-  would give a capable and business-like  administration. .  The people of Nelson are impatiently  awaiting the fulfillment of Mr. Bostock's promise that he will secure an  appropriation for the construction of  an adaquatc federal building hero.  '   '             - u  ��������������� ���������*   Candidates for-mayor of the new  City of Nelson are not quite so fre-  queut since that little matter about  qualification became better understood.  Corbett went into the fight too. soon.  If he had waited another week he  would have had one of Fitzsimmon's  arms' talked off.  M. SANDILANDS, C'1-XI.I.AL AGKNT  ire  Sandon, It.

Feb. 21th.���������Owing to political questions, wLjchare causing a feeling ot suspense to the average city man, fiiiauoiul  business is almost at n, standstill. Of  ���������course the fear of actual war in Europe  is not usually shared by calm aud judicial  minds, but what with thc Cretan  difficulty on the one hand and possibilities of further unpleasantness over the  Transvard imbroglios, on tha other, all  markets are flat, stale aud unsettled. A  few nights ago parliament was astonished  on being informed that the Preluriim  executive had sent in a claim to the  British'Government ou account of the  J'amiesbn raid for a sum'of over _������],Q1'0,"-  000 sterling. This euorn.ous sum is  mainly calculated as a solace for "moral  and intellectual damage" done, presumably, to the Dutch in the Transvaal, but  ns uo ouo cau believe that such a preposterous sum is likely to be paid, the  outcome cau ouly for the preseut be a  60urce of additional irritatiou. However,  let that be as it may, the tendency of  raining shares, as, indeed, the Euglish  funds is strongly downward," and apart  from general commerce business js'.tpni-  ponirily paralyzed.

"j\*iy-  way,- what she's done she's repented on,  which is more than some folks' as  haven't been found out can say!"  Meanwhile the man' and woman had  climbed the hill anS now paused outsido  -���������a cottage that stood-in a small garden in  which uiiwatcreil stocks and carnations  drooped, while from" the closed door no  sound of children's voices issued, all being still and silent as the grave.    . >���������  Something seemed to take Tamminy  by tlio throat; wild thoughts of treachery; of eriino even, Hashed through her  brain. Ho had killed tiie children. This  was his revenge on her; this the reason  of his docility, when turning to him as  her god, and expecting but scant mercy,  lie had come out to bring her homo.  Tottering over the threshold, only the  empty room greeted her. He had only  sent them away. And then sight returned  to her eyes, for bellind the doo: in their  wooden cot lay fast asleep a rosy boy and  girl, with tbo tears not yet dry upon  their cheeks. She dropped like a- stono  beside thum, and with a sob laid her  head down upon their little innocent  breasts. How long'ago was it that sho  had left this pure haven to bo a stranger's  light o' love? How long since she had  nourished evil thoughts against the man  who, God-like, had resisted thu world's  command to stone and cast her out, and  had forgiven and reinstated her in her  home? *     .-   -  Steve had set down the bundle, and  now was kindling the fire and'tilling the  kettle to make tea. He had got through  his agony during tlio.-e hours when in  the deserted home his children had wept  and called put in vain for "Mammy.'"  Who shall say what memories ei-owd the  heart of the man who yet loves tho woman who has betrayed him, what visions  of" her innocent youth, what piteous  thoughts plead . for her in his br.-ast,  while her children's eyes cry out to bim  for forgiveness of her sin? Even though  it be as scarlet he cannot in a' moment  unwind the strands that mutual love and  habit have bound ab.'iut their lives, and  the man in him being stronger than the  judge, he hearkens more to the exhortations of mercy than those commands to  vengeance that only those of austerely  pure life may venture to,obey.   .  Hod kept his own i-i-ckoning. and Steve,  knew that God bad clio-en in this instance to iiiake one man and one woman  'even.  So   when   Steve  .received   Tamiiiliiy's  message,, ho did . not   hesitate   for a mo  ment  what"  he   should   do.      He   went  straight out and fetched her home,saying  no word, good <>r bad, concerning past or  future, as they came. Ho had taken- her'  back. Could she over forect his tall figuro srriding swiftly through the ooonibe.  and shouldering hcrbundle.niaking a gesture, to her to follow,- till on entering th?  village ho had fallen back aud wal 1.3.1 ���������  rjeside her.  And now thc moment had come wheu  they must ��������� look in- each other's eyes,  when lie must show all noble as ono who  forgives by reason of- the Godhead that-  is in liim, or pitiful as ��������� thrf weak flesh  that shuts his eyes to tho vileness of.  what ho loves, lest that delicate morsel  of pleasure bo taken from it and ho -��������� bo  left in hungering. Tamminy had picked  up and put on tho cotton apron thai  she had flung down, how many years  ago? when she thought that' in throwing  off her duty to him she could throw off  mother's lovo also and all that a good  woman holds dear.  And now Steve an 1 sho were sitting  opposite each other at tho table, and between them the little fair heads were  bobbing over their mugs of milk'and tho  childish voices were chattering. Itwas  all just as though sho had novbr been  avay at all, and already thc children's  grief was forgotten nnd their little world-  was full of joy again. ��������� But Taiuuiiny  neither ate nor drank, and seoini? that  Steve's meal was also but pretense, she  lifted her head at last and spok<\  "Eh, Steve," sho said, pitifully, "why  did 'ee take me back?"  "For the children's sake," he said, but  sho shook her head, for his voice did uot  ring true.'  "Eh, but I misdoubt mo you're plny-  in' wi' me," she said, sadly.1 "G'ce ino  my punishment, lad; hue it out wi' me.  but don't go about softly, wisbin' me  dead. Well enough I know I ha' brnk'  your love, but whiles ago 'twas you -that  bruk mine. An' I danrna say ought to  'co or be jealous of 'eo again, for-I'vo  ta'en away tho right to say anythln'."  ���������"Tis ill work talkin' o' love atwixt  you and mc," ho said, roughly. "You  look after the little ones, I'll look after  the work,-an' the shed'll dofor me to lie  in, an' to take our bite an' sup together  won't poison us."  He had risen and was looking out at  his nets. His man's world had' to -be  faced and conquered;.aiid he' meant tri  get over it at once, and s.art fair and  sqiinre with tho new life iu the morning.  Turning in the doorway lie looked back  to where she stood, her little ones clinging about her knees, eyeing, him with,  hostile glances, conscious that in soaio  way ho was hurting "Mammy."  "Let things bide," he said .with a  sternness that well-became hini, and tho  woman's heart thrilled, for he was master alike of himself and of her. "I've  put 'eo back in your own placo, an' the  man or woman who says nay to that '11  answer to ine for it, but if ��������� over your  lover conies sneaUin' round, I'll kill the  pair o' 'ee���������tliat will I afore God."  The door closed sharply, hut the echo,  the manlier of his words remained behind him, and with a - sudden wild gesture of astonished joy, "Aw, but - he's  jealous," she said in awe-struck tones;-  then snatched up thc children in a sud-:  den exuberance of joy and gave, herself  up to a feast of love with them that only  ceased when they wero abed and asleep:  She c.nne slowly down the stairway,  binding up ber disordered hair as she  caine; then, in" the middle of the room,  suddenly threw out her grand arms with  a gesture of profounde.-it content, gazing  'around her as if tho humble room were a  palace and ins contents beautiful beyond  compare. A shephered and shepherdess  in delft stood on the chimney shelf,-ono  of Steve's "fairings" during courtship,  and Tamminy picked them both up and  kissed them heartily, then went around  the place touching this and that homely  article of everyday use, with keenest  pleasure, for every pot nnd pipkin formed  a link in the chain that: bound her to  her old life, once so vilesotnp, but now  dear and beautiful in her eyes. No matter under what conditions, this was  home,'and but a few hours ago she was  an outcast under yonder sky, hungering  for hor children, and with only tho  mercy;of one man to come between her  and hell.. And he had not passed her by.  Christ himself had not shown n more  divine���������forgiveness���������than���������did���������this���������poor���������  fisherman upon whom Tamminy in ber  awful despair, or, as others said, in her  hardihood, had cried out, and not. in  vain, for he had come to her instantly,  and by walking beside her through the  village mutely made her quarrel with  the world around.  And uow he had gone out to face gibe  and sneer, and Steve's pride had always  been his besetting sin, and blows would  be struck and ill-blood gotten - between  him and his .fellows, but the women's  tongues he could not silence. Cassandry's  least of all.  Well, they were even now, thought  Tamminy, and laughed harshly. That  was the fatal mistake a woman made  when she revenged herself on a man,  she only brought herself down to hi.,  level and that of tho other womaii,  whereas sho on thc right side of the  hedge may suffer indeed, but with such  suffering as winnows her 3oul pure.  And then Tamminy smiled.  "Aw, but he's jealous," she said in a  tone of huge content, then turned to go  at her cleaning-up as if she loved it, and  having mado all as neat as a new pin  and put Steve's bread and cheese out  against his return, she di .appeared into  the little lean-to that he had built  against the house, and soon a great commotion-was to be heard inside, and dust  llew through the keyhole and spread  itself over the sanded floor.  Eor all the odds, and ends of a. fisherman had gone into that rubbish shop,  and now they had to . be turned out or  decently hidden. Tamminy was almost  as' black as a coal when at last - she  emerged,.and, having washed off somo  of the dirt, disappeared up the stairway,  returning with first one thing,.then another, a mattress being one of the most  important Items, and when this was disposed of, and fair white sheets and  blankets, added, Tamminy stood hack to  look at her handiwork, then stopped and  pressed .her lips to tlie pillow where  Steve's head was to lie.  "Aw, but I'Umakc it - up to 'ee, my!!  lad," sho said with a sob, then resumed-  her work, and when all was dono and  comfort reigned she took one last journey, and came ;|back dimpling with a  looking-glass that- she propped up against  the wall, and which she further embellished by a faded daguerrotypo repre������ent-  ing herself at sixteen.  "He can I liraw it away if ho've got a  mind to," she said, chuckling like a  mlschevious child at sight of its own  work, and;it was at this momPiit- that  Cassanury,' prowling round, or attracted  by-a light shining through a chink in  thc boards, peeped in.  )      "Aw, but she'vo got no   shame!" naid  Cassandry as Tamminy, carrying a lights  In her hand,   disappeared   into   the   cot-  ttvge.  Half ah hour afterwards   Steve   came THE MINER, NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 1S97  ___se  in head foremost and Hung himself  spent and blooding into a chair.  "M'appon they'll let her alone now,"  he muttered, fiercely, as ho glanced round  the cottage, so disturbed yesterday, now  restored to its usual purity, with liis  supper set, his pipe and 'baccy beside ic,  and tlie one comfortable chair tho place  affordod drawn close up to the table. But  the hurt in.tlie man's soul was too deep  yet to be soothed by bodily comfort, aud  for a lung whilo he sat with head buried  in his hands, living over again in agony  all tho events of the past few weeks. It'  was dark night now, and was not some  unquiet step moving near at hand, something that held one hand to a heart nerve,  that throbbed and throbbed in pain:''  Presently ho took the light and throw  open die door of the lean-to, starting  back at sight of tho neat bed' chamber  revealed.  "Eli, but she've stripped herself that, j  may lie soft," he muttered, and the  woman who watched from without saw  his wandering gl.-.nce fall on lho faded  daguerrotype, that after a moment's hesitation lie picked up and 1 naked at furtively, as one ashamed. "Tis an innocent face," he s.iirt aloud. "God's curse  on him who spoiled it, and on him as  let her be led into temptation,'' lie added,  turning about with tlie picturo still in  his hand. Not a sound camo from overhead. Shading the light with his hand,  he climbed the stairs, treading on tiptoe  and moving liko a thief in the night.  The stripped bed looked naked in the  distance. On the floor, with her head  pillowed on thc breasts of her children  as they slept on their low couch beside  her and one arm thrown about them,  Tamminy slept. The woman out in tbe  garden for all thc warm summer night,  shivered as she waited iu her jealous  agony, watching with sickening impatience for the gleam of the returning  candle.  At last it came. Steve reappeared in  the doorway and - began to throw his  clothes oft' for the night, but in the  midst kneeled down and prayed.  " God!" he said audibly; "forgive her.  O God! do thou   lorgive   me,   a sinner."  Cessar.dry stole away. She was far  enough from thc heart and lips of Stcvo  that night. Yet when he prayed for himself ho should have prayed for her.  CHAPTER II.  . Tho little fishing village of Vale, innocent of sewerage save what ran down  the stream on one side of its long, unsavory street, actually boasted a church,  to which' the fishing population went,  clean for once, but still redolent of that  smell of flsh that in Yale was never entirely forgotten.  The" K. A.'s and- lesser painter folk,  who mado tlie place headquarters at  some period or othor of their existences,  thought nothing of the smell, only they  objected to living on the origin of it,  and oh'days when no butcher's meat  was obtainable, bid fair to die from a  surfeit of crabs, but invariably recovered.  Church then being an institution, on  the especial Sunday following Tamminy'g  elopement and return the congregation  was well seated and tho advent of parson momentarily expected, when a rijiplo  of excitement, beginning just inside the  church door, spread with extraordinary  rapidity to! the- very altar stops, as Dr.  Treveninck looked down the aisle to dis-  cover the cause of it.  The cause was nob far to seek, with  lmnuVrcds of angry eyes to guide him,  and there on a bench reserved maiuly  for casuals, sat Tnmmnnvwith her two  young children and Steve, his face stern  and "controlled, beside her. Br. Trevcn-  nick saw the whole thing in a flash-  more, ho grasped it as another might not  have done, for ho knew Stove and Tamminy both,their characters making a real  refreshment to him in his labors about  thc place. Both wore so noble, so apart  from the rest of the fisher folk, and both,  alas! hud fallen, the one, in secret, the  other in sight of God and man, and they  had come here humbly, as sinners, to  sit beyond the pale of the righteous and  endure, tho stare of tlie scornful, because  in their simple hearts they must worship  even though they sinned. Br. Trevcnnick  did not preach the sermon   that   day   ho  ���������liad-previously-prepared:'���������Iiistend-hetook-  thctte.xt, "Let him who is without sin  amongst you cast   the   first stone,"   and  ��������� without allusion to   the   woman dragged i  1 before Christ, he preached in a way that i  mado old sins wriggle in men's minds, |  old faults show naked in virtuous women's j  eyes, and when he had done there wus '  scarce a man.or woman  equal to turning   the   glances   on   Tani-  . niiny they had been choke full of when  service began; -���������  , Onco Tamminy lifted up her eyes and  met Cassandry's, full. It 'was an eio- !  quent look, saying much, aii-i before that i  glance tlie woman, respectable in the eyes :  of tho world seemed to shrink up and .  change place'with the wrongdoer, and |  Martha, whom little escaped, chuckled !  in her heart.   ' !  ''Maybe 'twill be yoiir turn next," j  she said to herself as she joined the  group gathered in the churchyard to, dis- j  cuss "parson's sermon,"' a group cn.ni-.j.  posed mainly of women, as Sieve's list j  had taught silence to many a wagging .  tongue during the past f'-w days.  "Aw," said Cassahdry, "liu'vo took j  her back sure enough, an' lie stands by ;  her when she brazens it out at worship-, j  for he bo a man"���������her voico swelled]  out. in a note of curiously mingled ad- I  miration and .personal pride���������"but he !  don't love her no more���������an' ��������� she, bides ;  upstairs with the children, an' he makes j  shifts in the lean-to by nights.",' -1  ��������� "An' how might 'ee be knowin' that; !  less 'ee'd sneaked round to see?" inquired j  Martha with her pawkiest air. ���������. . j  "An' don't the back 'o our garden run  ' down to the back o' Steve's?" inquired  Cassandry, with arms akimbo. "An'  can't I see the light a-shinin' through, at  nights?" " . -  "If 'ce was mindin' yer house 'ee  wouldn't have time for. that," said another woman, drily. "You'd best keep  jnore within door till Pete comes back or  there'll bo a rcckouin' 'ee won't want  to pay," and nodding her head significantly she went her way.  Meanwhile Stove and Tamminy had gono  back tothe divided   life   in   which* they  i constantly met, yet never touched hands.  AU that love could do for his comfort  Tamminy did; all that he could do for  hers and the children's bodily welfare ho  was indefatigabloin doing, and out of  his little store he had bought a ��������� new  mattress that he drove ten miles to fetch  and smuggled in after dark, carrying it  upstairs without a word, sleeping, perhaps, all the better for knowing that she  lay .as soft as lie.  And yet with all this mutual observance, with.the real, deep love there was  for each other in their hearts, and tiie  strong tie the lowly, innocent children  made between them, the pelf-control on  both sides was so g/eat that the attitude  between them was always ono of dignity,  ami listen ns Cassandry   might no sound ;  of strife ever issued   from    tho dwelling, j  And the (iny was to work,   to   smile, to '  show pluck'in,   but   what   of the night,  when apart each tossed and   turned, and  the woman  wept   and   the   man   cursed  himself as  being   the   root   of   this   cvii  thing that had como upon him?  Leaning   against   the   boards    in   the  outer darkness, her  eye   to   tho   crevice.,  of whieh   Steve vms ignorant, Cassandry  would watch him till tho   light   was ox- '  tinguished,   then   linger   on, hearkening  to   his   slight   groans aud cries,  longing  with a pas-.ioii that shook her like, a reed  to bid him unbar the,   door   and   let her ,  take his head upon her  breast   and com- ���������  fort him.    Onco he  seemed   to   l._;������l   ber  near   and   siarled   up witli au    oath   to  chase her away, bub before ho   could un- i  bar the door, she had gone, and the dark '  cottage on the   otlier   side   of   ths   fence  swallowed her up.    "If   I thought 'twas  she I'd   make shift in   the    kitchen " he  muttered as he went buck to bed,  but for  many nights at tor that   scare.   Cas.'iand'ry  never came near tiie place.  -, . i  PART II.���������CIlAPTl.lt I. i  i  whisper  sat on  playing  "Tamminy!"  Tlie  word   came   in a   fierce  from tho wood behind her as she  the cliff, knitting, her   children  ab a little distance from her.  "Aw," sho said calmly, and without  turing her head, "an' what might 'ee be  wantin' o' mo?"  The man who had called to her emerged  Into the open, and in his light summer  nlothes and with a straw hat at the back  of his head came round with an injured  expression and stood before her.  "So ynu are hero," he said, "and a  pretty danco you've led mc."  She. laughed and flourished at him tho  stocking heel with which   she was   busy.  "Kor Steve,' slie said cxultingly, "and  best be on the lookout, my man, for if  ho catches 'ee, he'll pick 'ee up like a  maggot and drop 'ee over thc cliffs."  "He has taken ynu back?" said the  man, as if stupefied, for these, fisher folk  were beyonu him. Had they no primitive  passions���������hate, jealousy, revenge.; was  even lovo unknown to them?  "If you were so fond of your Stove,  why didn't you stick to him?" lie said,  savagely.  "Aw," said Tamminy,- lotting her  scornful glance travel over him from head  to foot, "do 'ee think man an' wifo can't  have a word or two wi'out a stranger  cuttiu' in bowcen 'em? An' because you  was a lord an' thought 'eo could paint a  bit an' I'd make a good modd'c, 'ee was  alius danglin' after me���������an' 'ee just  coinei' the nick o' time an' took advantage o' me, as a good man 'ud scorn to do  an' like the fool I was, tho' I wouldn't  listen afore, I listened then and I went  wi' 'ee."  "And having done so, you belong, to  me, nob him," he said, mortiflpd as a  man, but thrilled as an artist by tbe perfection of her beauty, flawless in the  strong light of the sun. The copper-red  of her hair, the oxquislto coloring of skin  that goes only with such hair, the grand  lines of her throat and figure and thc  black-lashed, black-browed blue eyes���������  where had he before met with such loveliness combined in one woman?  "Aw," said Tamminy, calmly,, "you'd  host go your ways and paint your p'icters,  and doan't look for no more moddles  'mongst poor fisher folk like we. When  'eo asked me to set to 'ee I**hever guessed  th' end. 'Twas all vanity, an' likin' to  seo myself dressed up in your studycran'  bein' told I were a gawdess, and fooled  to my heart's content, for Steve, he was  always backward that way. Them aa  feels can't never'talk about it; butl  never loved 'ce���������'twas Steve I loved."  "So it seomed," said tho man. dryly,  "when you came away with mo "  "Aw," said Tamminy, soberly, '-'that  was Cassandry's doing. I were just ti red-  hot mad woman wi1 th' story she'd told  me about Steve���������as if 'twere his fault,  an' she niver lettin' him alone���������an' a  man ain't a pin the worse, do what he  will, but tho woman takes her shame to  bed an' board .wi' her, an' that's just  what the Almighty meant."  "A convenient creed," said the man'  with a sneer. "And meanwhile "your j  -piefcurc_w.ilL_nevcr_bo_-finished:���������It.-was_.  only sketched inland how am I to givo '  yonr wonderful coloring from  memory?"-!  "Eh, but if :ee loved" me 'ee'd  be ,ablc  to   remember   it," she.   said, scornfully. |  "Stcvo have got, me too deep i' his  heart !  to forget what I   he like, but   'twas   the ,  pieter you wanted, not the woman," she!  girl Tamminy as sho had been before a  cursed woman camo between them, and  that could never be, lie thought, and his  head sank a.s he wont, and tlio neighbors  nodded aud said: "I-Ii������ spirit is breabin'  at last."  "Thero was an unusual liuhb in Tani-  nilny's eye, a brilliant, flush on her  cheek, that evening, whicli Steve was  swift to note, and account for���������sho had  seen her lover in spin, of his warnings,  and would undoubtedly sec hinf'ngain.  Ife read the intention in every quick  (.���������ned movement' of her lithe figure, in  tlie wll.lness of the laugh which she  mingled with the children's, and tbe  man's heart sickened within him, though  more for herself than others.  For there had been times when, look-  in!!- in his wife's face or watching her  wiih than minute ob.-'ervation that is informed only by jealous love, hu had not  dared to think of her as sinful, and if  ever a man should know the difference  between a good and a bad woman ib  should bo he, who had so intimately  known a typical instance of each. P.r.t  to-night Steve realized that the world's  verdict was just, that thc reckless fever  whicli had swept her away before was in  her veins again, and that for thc sake of  the little ones, if not for his, a. strong  band must be put, out to save her from  herself. A dereliot, she had yet come  into safe anchorage within the harbor of  home, and now sho was willing to cros.  thc raging bar once more and put out in  her frail cockle shell to sea, there to go  to pieces, as, God hell) them, women,''  aud men, ay, did every day.  He sat with bowed head at thc table  listening to her light foot as she put  the children to bed overhead, to her  voice as she talked with them, and the  thought-went through hini that she would  take them with her when she went, and  that he would come homo one day to  find'the place empty. Had she, indeed  repented of leaving them behind?. Had  her return only been a ruse to regain  possession of them and then rejoin her  lover?  Tamminy's face gavo the lie to the  thought, as she just then appeared, bet  face rosy with the little ones' kisses,  their simple prayers still sounding in  her ears. Seeing him sitting there so  stili, her face changed; bub intensely  c.inscious as each might be of the other,  the boundaries- of mutual reserve wero  never overstepped, so she merely took up  the half-knitted stocking and sat down  by the open door to work.  Never did a woman look more lovable  than she at her homely occupation, and  it suddenly flashed into Steve's mlnO  that if she were going to leave him  again sho would not be knitting him  that stocking, And the words ho had  been iroing to say to her died on hi.  lips, and even in thought became sacrilege as he looked on her face. So they  sat silently on till the gloom became  darkness,. and with a sigh Tamminy  arose and put her work away. Somehow  iu that quiet hour Stove and she had  come nearer together than they had ever  como since a certain dnv when Cassandry  and she had had a ce. o :i conversation���������  and Lord Allandale had profited by the  results.  there   who felt i".aihled, indifferently.  Steve had his own reasons for taking  yau back," he said, his wide experience  of women utterly routed by the specimen  before him, yet .instinctively turning to  what was usually thc safest draw.  "Aw,"' said Tamminy, , composedly,  "you've played that tune ower long and  I'll dance to it.no more. Cassandry's no  more in his life than you aro i' mine,  an' please God the love that was -.first  shall   he last a-twixt us two."  The man laughed.  " You are still mad on some points,"  ho.said, "and you can't see that he took  you back to hide his own misconduct, for"  your lips r.r^ closed now. In the eyes of  the world"���������he waved his hand toward  the fisher village close hidden in the deep  cutting of the roek���������"you are oven."  -"But God knows," said Tamminy simply, and called.the children to'hrr, and  over their heads looked at hiin with a  pity upon which liis manhood shrivelled,  leaving to him only tho resource of his  fine manners, as he bowed low an I left  her abruptly, stumbling over Cassandry  in her hiding place as lie went.  His face was black with mortified  vanity and something more, foy Tamminy, dressed In all the charms of resistance," was more ��������� desirable even as tho  woman than the model, and Cassandry's  words, as sho drew liim out of earshot,  fell comfortably on his ear.  "'Tis a lie tlinb Steve ha' 'forgiven  her," whispered the fierce, black eyed,  Miirillo-liko girl, "an' if. 'ee go away,  come back, an' .'ee'll  got yer pieter yet."  More conversation . followed betwean  the worthy pair, and it was with a light  heart that Cassandry by and by descended thc winding path that led to the village, while- Lord Allandale struck out  across the cliffs in the direction of Trask.  Steve had been out fishing all day, and  as lie came in with the tide the beauty  and peace of- the evening hour smote on  his spnses and his heart was lifted up,  ouly to be dashed again cartnward by a  sudden thought.  For so it is that a' man will sin, yet in  his own eyes be clean, yet if Ills wife follow his example and sin also, there is no  Jordan that will wash him clean, and  the shame and defilement of her sin will  eat like a corroding ru-^t into his heart,  turning the joy of life to ashes between  his teeth. Therefore. Steve took no pleasure in Hearing thehome nestled in with  its !iack to the cliffs aud the half-opened  door, with the two curly heads peeping  ai-ound it for "daddy."    He wanted   hii  CHAPTEK  II.  Through tho chink in tlie lean-to a  little stream of light fell on Cassandry's  dark face as she looked in to see Steve  carefully placing under his pillow thi\  little, daguerrotype Tamminy hail set up  beside his glass.  Cassandry's eyes flashed and . sh_  knocked at the . door, not loudly, but  imperatively,-and Steve's voice called  out "Who's there?" from inside.  She answered by knocking again, but  when he remained silent sho disguisud  her voice and demanded entry on a matter of the most vital importance to himself. "Aw,.'tis you, then?" said Steve,  with infinite scorn in his voice. "I  thawt as.much; but 'ce may knock forever���������'eo don't come in here. Get home  wi' 'eo, woman, or I'll call Tamminy  clown to shame 'ce. An' well it is poot  Mike's far away this night���������as good, a  lad as iver stepped, wi' a heart too good  for the likes o' you to play wi' an] in.  to break.  Mav God forgive us both!"  '"Tain't the likes (V Tamminy as-'ll  shame me!" whispered the girl fiercely  through the thin do.ir on the other side  nf which Steve stood. '"Taint Mike  that's the on'y fool about his wife, foi  Tamminy's just waitin' her opportunity  to slip off again . wi' -her fancy man  -what she spent all th' afternoon on the  cliffs wi' this afternoon while you was  flshin'."  - She wished that she could seo his faco.  .The silence "on the other side of thc door  was profound;''  "If 'co don't believe me, go out wi:  the boats to-morrow niornin', and- slip  ! homo ������3'jn an'_." up to the cliff beyond  'Creaii m Ground, an' you'll see what  you'll see, an1 what you've forgiven an'  taken back an' set up as a 'xample ti  me." ' -  "Listen!" said Steve, stonily.    "Whatever my wife is or may  be is our work���������  your's   an' mine.    Slie   wero as   good a  girl as   ever   stepped   when   I took   her,  an' would be now but that when she found  out thar, I, who'd sworn   to   ho   faithful  ' to hor, were   untrue   she   just   couldn't  i  liear   it,    an',    bein'    so     high-spirite.i,  throwed herself on   thc   first   man   that  ; come, along.   Jlut she repented quick, an'  rl'll niver believe  she'd   do   it again, an'  .  if she wanted to I wouldn't let her."  Cassandry laughed insultingly.  '"Tis well to ha' .a   good   stomach for  daintier folks* leavin's," she   said, "an'  I  'tis ill work'for a mau   whose   trade lies  to sea to mind a   gay   wife" that flaunt';  ashore."  ���������    - "Silence, woman!"   cried   Steve   fnri-  1 - ously. "' Who iver saw Tamminy   flams?  ,. She alius stayed to horn'- an'minded that  an' tho little uns.    'Twas ' thc man that  , sought out her, not her. him.    If 'eo had  been as backward   wi'   the   men -as   she  thcre'd be two sinners   less in this warld  , to-night."  "Eh,',', said Cassandry  piteonsly;. "but  ' we was sweethearts   together   afore   iver  Tamminy came���������a   stranger.    'Ee   liked  mc well enough till she thrawed the spell  over 'ee."  "Xo," said Steve decisively. "I niver  Iuv'd but one woman i' iu"y life, an'  that's Tamminy. An' if she did wrong  a hundred times over I'd stick to her  through thick .and thin. An' knowin'  how I luv'd her, why couldn't 'ee let mo  ,be? An,' she away an" all, an* me. to  my siianii*. drunk. What have she dona  worse nor me? An' often 1 misdoubt mn  if she have iver sinned at ajl when I  look upon her sweet, innocent face.'*  He heard a slight, sound behind him,  and. turning, saw his wife, with arms  outstretched; her faee all transfigured  with passionate love.  "Aw. St.-ve, iad," she said in a whisper, i||-_Hit you're about right. I ha'  ���������loti" 'ce no wrong. How could I Iiavs  come back to 'ce if I had?"  He leaped into her arms, and as they  clunjj.t'.gether the caudle siiluttered and  wont out. On the other side of the door  lhey heard a faint- moaning; as of somo  wild animal timed by pain, r.v.d Tamminy shuddered as she drew hini away  through the darkness into tlio kitchen,  wl ere lhey sab down side by sido. .  "Aw, poor soul!" she said, "she loves  'ee. Hut when she come here crowin1 an'  tellin' me of all that had passed atwei-.n  'ce ib bruk my heart,, for I thought 'ee  luv'd her back, an' how could 1 hide  along wi' 'ee after tliat? 1 couldn't  speak, for her shame wero your'n, an'  tli' little uns didn't count for nnthin', I  were just mad and Iir- for Iiedlam, an'  th' devil sent th' painter chap to my door  that very day���������ho tried to mako love to  mo afore���������an' I told him I was going  away for good. An' ho up an' says,  'Will yo' coiihi wi' me?' 'Yes,' says I,  an'-throwed off my apron (thc children  were asleep) an' made up a bundle, an'  walked down th' village wi' un as bold  as brass. I.iifc folks know he were  makin' a pieter o' mc, an' wo got off  wi'out nobody bollcrin' arter us, an'  walked 'cross the cliffs to Trask. 'This  is my wife.,' says he at. his inn, an' they  smiled quiet-like, an' bowed an' scraped  an' seemed to know mn���������as well they  might, seein' th' sketches o' mc littered  all about th' place. But I saw him pick  up a glass an' look out t' seo for th'  fishi'n' fleet, and then���������then I heard tho  children eallin', an' there was you  waitin" your tea. An' when ho tried to  make love t' mc���������aw, don't 'ce think I  know what love, real love, he? 'Tis' the  music wc women make to one man's  voice���������like the dance drawn out o' the  children's feet by the playin' pipes,  whether they will or no; an' what wo  loved first we lovo last, for that is so,  lad, thar somethin' draws us to a man,  an' we may full out wi' hiin an' hate  him, hut if we be true winnnin we  conies back to what we trowly loved at  first, spite o' all that 's  gone   between."  "Eh, bub there was my fall!" groaned  Steve, his strong arms wound fast about  her.  "Aw," she said simply, "you was a  man. An' I be but a woman, an' such  things ain't for we. I thought I could  do it, but I just couldn't. Something  roso up in me that wasii't me an' you  might ha' cut mo in pieces but I couldn't.  They heard it as they talked, though  no stir of wind was abroad���������that low.  moaning sound that wailed round the  house like some outcast thing which  longed to enter, but knew itself barred  out from love and joy. And involuntarily Tamminy clutched Steve's hand tight.  "Eh, 'J'amniiny," said Steve, sadly;  "but I thought there was two o' us sinners, an' there be on'y one. How will ye  bide to put up wi' mo, air the neighbors'  scorn���������for they'll nivor believe anvtbin'  but what's ill o' '������.?"  "There's Mike," said Tamminy when  all was quiet again. "He just dotes on  Cassandry, an' if you wasn't hero to be  always measured wi' ' him p'raps she'd  come to be fond o' him i' time. Id's  wt.naerful how a woman Ml get used to  a man in time. An' nobuddy '11 ever believe i' me here now, so I Was thinkin',  lad, that if 'ee could bear it we'd sell up  our bit sticks an' go down Plymouth  way, where father's folks lives,' and- begin our married life o'er agon."  For a moment or two Steve did not  speak. He loved the fisher village. His  earliest associations, ail the habits of his  life, were bound up in it. But he loved  Tamminy moro and consented.  When ho wa3 soundly sleeping that  night Tamminy wrapped herself in het  cloak and sought in thc garden for Cassandry, but thc woman was not there.  Pushing through the little fence, ������li_  easily gained the kitchen of.the house beyond, iu which ii lamp was b.irning that  showed Cassandry, sunk in exhaustion on  thc settle, sound asleep.  Cassandry lifted herself dully, th.  misery that, sleep had extinguished in hoi  eyes returning to theni. . Thon, seeing  who it was, she laughed harshly,  stumbled to her feet, and, dropping a  low   courtesy, said insolently���������  "Birds o' a feather flock together.  There ain't much to choose, betwixt Tam-  minv Fletcher and Cassuiidrv Benshaw  now!" ,,     '-   . --    '   -  "That bo -true enow," said Tamminy  sadly. "There's the sin o' th' heart an'  the sin o' th' body; liViippen'tis all  alike afore God. "But I be goin'-"'way7  Cassandry, an' Steve, he be connn', too:  an' afore we part I want to mako fren's,  so as we can think kind o' each other,  th"' we niver meet agen."  "Xo," said Cassandry, folding hoi  arms tightly on her breast: "I wunnot.  If I. was goin' wi'.Steve an' you was left  behind I'd lovo 'ee. But 'tis you that has  had tho top o' everythin' all through, an'  He th' leavin's. An' I'll niver forgi'o 'ee,  ah' 1*11 enrsn 'ce to my dyin' day!"  "There's Mike," said Tainlmny.  "He'll bo back any day now, an' he  loves every hair o' your head, an'-'twouUl  break his heart to know all that's passed  You've* only got to bo kind to -hinr _s_.ii!  "make it up to him," she added pitifully.  "God knows I don't want to make 'ee-a  deceitful woman, but'wbaur's the good o'  goin' to wrack and ruin o' confessin' to  what you've don' an' brc.ikin' a- good  man's heart? So long as"'ee confess to  God an' are real sorry th: t's all as is  asked or expected o' a sinn.n' soul,1 an'  Mliko an' you may be happy yet,specially  when tlie children come "  "An' what o' yourself?'" said Cassandry,  waveringly, for every woman has a natural instinct t nvards saving herself from  open shamo. "Ain't you to have, no pun  ishment neither?" "i'ain'r. everybody that  eats their cake an' has. it."' '" .__  b'or a full minute the>two women bent  earnest gaze on each other, then:���������  "Eh," but whatever 'ee done, you be a  better woman nor I, Tamminy," said  Cassandry. "But there's Steve to love,  'ee���������while I"��������� She threw herself down  on the settle and.gave way to a paroxysm  of grief.  .  Tamminy crossed   over to her   swiftly,  laying a gentle hand on the bowed head.  "Eh, but it'll come to "ee, my dear."  she said, "an'.when you s?e Mike happy,  an' you've got folks' respedk, an' your  children growing up, you'll' forget Steve  ���������an' so God bless 'ee, Cassandry an'  good-by."  The exhausted woman did not stir.  Yet the beginning of a new life���������a life  hard indeed but' without sin or shame���������  dawned in her as Tamminy's footsteps  passed out into the night.  The sea sparkled in the sun and  showed Mike's shin making for shore,  danced in the eyes of Cassandry and on  her braided hair, as she moved about her  cottage newly redd np against its master's return, and drew the eyes of Stevu  Fletcher as, with Tamminy beside him  and the children playing before, they  climbed the steep cliff beyond which lay  the world and the new life upon which  they were to enter together. Scon they  had topped the cliff, and, looking on  fiacii other's faces instead of back, with  hands fast clasped together, the two bin-  Deri, vanished in the haze of light boy&ud.  the Mcdowell atkins watson co., ltd  A-r      -ram,  -WHOLESALE AND RETAIL-S^  DRUGGISTS  VANCOUVER,   B.

Granitc-J C Yuill to 11 W Yuill, I  During the past week Kootenay mining  stocks have received more attention from  the investing public than hns been the  case for some time. The demand for  shares iu the better class of companies  has been, particularly noticeable and  there is every indication that the volume  of business in this respect will continue  to. increase. The brokers of Kossland  realize that they' cannot attend to orders  quickly and to aclvaut'a'ge without the  medium of a stock exchange and have  prepared to establish one without delay.  They will undoubtedly' experience much  benefit from such an' institution and will  obtain' a large portion of the business  that is now trausacted in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Victoria and Spokaue.  It is uot unlikely that maoy of the Spokaue brokers will move to Rossland as  soon as the exchange is established.  Reference to the letter of the Miner's  Loudon correspondent, published on  another page pf this issue, plainly indicates the growing interest that is being  manifested there'iu B.C. mines and we  may reasonably*' expect to see much  Euglish money 'invested in Kootenny  duriug the coming summer.  There has been considerable trading iu  Deer Park..- and Commander during the  last few days and while the former after  considerable fluctnatiou remains at the  same figure as' last week, Commander  has jumped from 15 to 21. EveniDg  Star has advanced from 12J^.to 14 and  Palo Alto is now quoted at 10. The  holders of 1'hoenix now ask 16.  The prices of Slccan stocks remain  about tlie same as last week.
