Dave Kiug, who left Spokane  with a paper collar and his nerve, is i ow  proprietor of the greatest newspaper in  Kaslo, aud is the second greatest mau in  Cauada. He lias built up Kaslo, saved  the country from ruiu and if his gall  holds out. he will soon be the sassiest  editor on'earth. D. 1$. Bogle who can  cut deeper with a pen than he cau with a  sword has recently attracted the attention of our sleepy government by his  literary stabs nt the doings of its high  ollicers. Pratt, tho biggest and laziest  editor the country "ever had, is now  printing a Pf*J>er._in. Seattle.__ W. H. C^  Jackson, who was sorting ore at the Slocan Star two years ago, got into the swim  at Rossland and is now editing one of  the best dailies in the country. Seneca  G. Ketchum has not ridden in ,a box car  for many months, and haa boozereno to  bathe in. E. D. Cowen, who went round  the world with Jim Blaine, has struck  the camp aud will no doubt try to teach  the rest of the world movers that he is  king of tbe peo. Most ot the offices in  Kootenay are putting in more mnchinery  and it is rumored that the greatest nuisance we have in the profession is about  to enlarge his plant at Slocan City by  the addition of a. blacksmith bellows.

Two       More  lt.ill.vii.v Charters in llie Northern  .  rortloii ol* the I'rovlce.  The Principal ilegulations that are  to he Adopted in the Acquire-  ���������   ment of Mineral Lands.  One section of tho Smith amendment  of the mineral act is designed to exempt  from fri-e miners' licenses men who are  .merely employed-as- work iu the miues.  Anothei provision is that in entering on  private lands a miner is not first required, as at present, to put up security;  but ouly does so if requested afterwards  by the owners. Another section allows  work done outside of a mineral claim, if  having dire.t relation to such claims and  in direct proximity to it, to be accepted  in lien of assessment work and also it  provides that a partnership not exceeding eight claims in number may .put in  assessment work for a group on one  claim, thc amount expended being equal  to S100 for each claim.  Crown grants to mineral claims arc  made to convey surface rights, including timber for the purpose of working  the claim, oilier surface rights being  vested in tho crown, but the owners of  crown grants for.mineral claims may  surchase all the "surface "rights i'or $5"  per acre. In cases where a -mineral  is located on a railway grant the owner  of the .crown grant shall be entitled to  appaopriate the surface "right in fee  simple of the company, the amount  not to exceed $5 per acre.  All tho sections here referred to arc-  in italics, for private members cannot  bring them in and when in italics arc  supposed not to bo seen until the government gives its consent in the hoiisc  to their insertion.  ' Othor provisions mako clearer the.  laping out of claims and "recording  them. A miner to abandon a claim  must givo notice in writing to 'the  mining recorder. For the purposes of  a crown "grant, work done on a claim  by a predecessor in title may be  deemed to be (loin1 by the applicant,  who receives the transfer. Notice of  tho application for ;i crown grant must,  be made in a newspaper in the district, or if-here. is none then in the  nearest paper. The survey of a claim  may be counted as work on the claim,  but not to exceed $100.  To prevent any more uncertainty as  to partnerships iio free minei-.shall be  entitled to interest in a claim located  by'some one else; except where, a" written agreement exists."  Victoria, April 23.���������Premier Turner  has introduced in the Provincial Legislature two very important railway  bills. One extends-the time of the  commencement of the yearly expenditure of .1(200,000. by .the Canada  Western railway, to hold its * charter,  from May 1st, 1890, to June 22, 1S0S.  The second grants aid to the Cassiar  Central railway by leasing to them  for 50 years nob exceeding 10,2-10 acres  per mile for each mile built, to be "designated within seven years of the  passage of the act. Thepaymenttbthe  government is to bo one and one-half  per cent on thc net returns of all previous.metals taken out, $50,000 a year  on each claims, $100 for each transfer  of a claim, 50 cents per 1,000 feet of  lumber, and 25 cents per cord of wood.  Free miners are entitled to enter on  the lands to mine, one-half share of  such claims to belong to the company  as tenants in common. ��������� The government reservesalso a royalty of 5 cents  per ton on coal.-  ..When the Nelson arid Foit'Sheppard  railway land giant bill came up for u  second reading 'on Thursday, J. M. Kellie, member for north..est Kooteuay,  made a bitterly worded attack upon the  measure. He claims 'that the railway  company, has uot complied with the  original laud, subsidy net. Kellie criticised the government fur giving D. C.  Corbin eight.solid blocks instead of alternate ones: He also accused Corbin with  making miuers pay for holding timber  on their claims when situated within  the limits of the grant.  The by-election in the electoral district  ot Cbilliwack to fill the seat in the legislature made vacant by the death of Mr.  Thomas Kitchen will.take place.on May  11.  The Nelson aud Bedlingtou railway  charter has passed its second reading. *V  provision has been introduced iu the bill  to the effect that no branch or extensiou  of the proposed railway shall exceed  twenty mile3 in a direct line from the  main track.

The government evinces a disposition to disregard the matter.  . Helmcken has introduced several  amendments t<> the Provincial laud sui-  veyors' act.

During his disallowance speech, Mr.  Mclnnes implied that thc Toronto  Globe was to a great extent controlled  by the ('.P.U. The general opinion  appears to prevail that such is the  ease; but the Globe became highly  indignant anel declared that the member from Vancouver Island '-shall he  chastised, in so far as it is the power  of this paper to chastise him." The  chastisement consistent of column after  column of abuse in which Mr. Mclnnes  was termed a liar anel a slanderer. To  this Mr. Mclnnes replied on a point of  privilege, and conclusively demonstrated his fearlessness anel ability to  defend himself. So far, he has had  decidedly the best of the argument  anel the Globe lias undoubtedly lost  prestige.  It must be a consielerable source of  gratification to Mr. Mclnnes to know-  that he was so loyally supported by  every liberal member from the AVest.

SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1897.  GOLD MINERS' CONVENTION  The National Mining Bureau of  Colorado has issued a call for an international golel miners' convention to be  held in Denver on the 15th anel lOfch  of June next. Tt is proposed to have  in connection with it exhibits of golel  ores and a general mineral display. A  request is maele that State mining  bureaus, schools of inines, boards of  trade, chambers of commerce, mining  exchanges, and all mining organizations co-operate in forming the exhibit,  anel senel delegates. Each county in  thc mining _States, anel in the mining  elistricts of British Columbia and  Mexico are asked to elect delegates.  Governor Adams of Colorado has been  named as presielent of tho convention,  anel Irwin Mahon as secretary.  This is a matter worthy of favorable  consideration by the miners of British  Columbia. While this Province now  takes, rank with the greatest niining  countries of the world, the development of its mineral resources is of very  recent elate. In the western States,  however, the condition is different.  Colorado, California, Montana,  Utah and Nevada have been  the center of wide-spread interest  for the last quarter of a century, and the industry of quartz mining in those states has developeel to  an extraordinary elegree. It is there  -that-millions-of-dollars have-been-in-  vestcel anel millions upon millions of  dollars worth of ore have heen raised.  To the men of "those elistricts the  .world is largely indebted for the ael-  vanceinent of niining as an industry.  Many ofthe most successful and ex-  perionceel miners of the western states  will undoubtedly attend the convention, anel much will.be said concerning  all that is new anel best in the working  L of'niincs.  No doubt a number of "our leading  mine operators will ,-ittenel the convention, hut.it woulel he well if thc Kootenay Mining Protective Association  were officially represented. Itisnot  unlikely that the Denver meeting will  result in the permanent organization  of the International Gobi Miners' association and that regular annual conventions will follow. Should such be  " the case, the representatives of our  local association woulel then have an  , excllent opportunity to propose that  the next convention be hold at sonic  central point in Kootenay.  MINERAL ACT AMENDMENT  Thc Smith Amcnelihent to the Mineral Act is, in the main, well-con-  sielercel, anel its aeloption by the legislative assembly will meet with the  approval of the general public and  particularly those intoresteel in the  mining industry of this Province. Although the mining committee discussed the advisability of debarring  aliens from taking up mineral claims,  Mr. Smith has nob included such a  provision in his amendment. In this  respect the Act will probably remain  unaltered in spite of the unfriendly  spirit that has ever been manifested  toward British citizen's by the lawmakers of the < Land of thc Free and  the Homo of the Demagogue. The  high-minded principles that thus  actuate the parliament of British Columbia are a noteworthy distinction  from the policy which the Anglo-pho-  bists at Washington have endeavored  to aelopt.  The amendment contains a clause  for which the Mixer anel other newspapers have persistently insisted. It  is to the effect that men merely employee! at work in thc mines shall be  exempt from free miners' licenses.  Thc clause will undoubtedly be adopteel,  ���������anel what has heretofore been an unwarranted anel outrageous discrimination w.ill be remedied.'  The amendment einboelies a number  of other sensible revisions. The onus  of proof against a previous location is  placed on the adverse claimant. To  prevent any-more uncertainty as to  partnerships, no free miner shall be  entitled to interest in a claim locateel  by someone^ else except a written  agreement exists. Another gooel provision is that notice of application for  a crown grant will have to be advertised irTaT newspaper published within  the limits of the district wherein the  claim is located. The amendment also  contains sensible methods to he f'ol-  lowcel concerning assessment work,  the laying out and recording of claims  anel clearly defines what surface rights  belong to the miner.  Taken all in- all, the amendment is  the best piece of legislation introeluceel  iluring the present session of ��������� the  House.  tecteel in the labor market at home.  Ne_> invasion of thc home field, shoulel  be permitted a country that is not  willing to extenel equal privileges to  Canaela.  In another column of this issue will  be found a letter signed-by Messrs. C.  A. Semlin and 0. B. Sword, the leaders of the Provincial opposition party,  which proves conclusively that lion.  G. H. Martin, chief commissioner of  lands anel works, has broken a pledge  ���������none the less solemn and binding because it was a verbal one. At a meeting ab Kamloops some time ago, Mr.  Martin promised to resign his portfolio  shemlel any measure for money bonus  or guarantee in aiel of the British Pacific scheme be brought down hy the  government, reserving to himself the  right to acquiesce in.any further land  grant. The Butte Inlet-Quesnelle is a  railway scheme proinoteel by Mr. R. P.  Rithet, who is also the father of the  British Pacific project. These are  practically one and the same thing.  Yet Mr. Martin has voteel for the cash  subsidy of !!j> 1,000 a mile and docs not  appear to have the remotest intention  of keeping his promise, lb is useless  for Mr. Martin to donv that he ever  maele the pledge as it was made in the  presence of Messrs. Marpole, Mara,  Macintosh, Swoitl anel Semlin, the  latter careful ly writing down the words  at the time for future reference. The  pledge was given to avoid an election  contest, anel in consequence Mr. Martin was not; opposed.  The Victoria Colonist complains because! of "scandalous attacks that arc  maele upon members of the Provincial  government," and "wants it stopped."  Unless the Turner ministry sees the  error of its way the wish of Alessrs.  I)tinsn_uirs' organ is not likely, to be  gratified. 'There arc two mebhoels by  which the severe criticism of British  Columbia's rulers by the press of Canaela, anel the indignant protest of a  long-suffering people may be silenceel:  The Administration must resign office,  or cease squandering tho public funds  011 pet railway schemes promoted by  their political supporters; havo an end  to tlieir charter-mongering, stop creating monopolies anel conduct the various public departments so that opposition members of the legislature will  nob have to be ever searching for senno  trickery.  .lohn Charlton,- who i.s as nar-  niindeel a puritan a.s ever snuffled,  Mi-  row  has introeluceel a bill in the Dominion  parliament to compel the general public, to be as miserable as possible on  Sundays. He wants no Sunday newspapers, no. railway traffic, no Sunday  excursions. By the way, he is the  same inelivielual who a month or so  ago made'a speech in New York which  practically aelvocateel the annexation  of Canada to the United States.  Tho Vancouver "Workl does nob  wholly approve of tho. Turner Railway  Policy. Unless the leader of the government makes haste to give the  Workl another, fat printing contract  he is very liable to lose the support  of the only sheet published on the  Mainland that is shameless enough to  boost for his administration.  ���������T-hc-lcgislatiuc-acted-wisely���������in-killing, the Kellie resolution which aelvocateel the enlargement of the boun-  elries of British Columbia so as to include thc Yukon district. The addition of that territory.woulel be a great  expense to this province, and there are  no advantages to be obtained that are  not already enjoyed. .  -*UOFi'!_!-10--.i-_  CARDS.  BRITISH COL UMBIA'S -  REPRESENTATIVES.  Thc electors of British Columbia  have good reason to be proud of the  members from this Province.who are  now serving their first term in the  Dominion House of Commons. Messrs.  Bostock, Maxwell, .Morrison and Mclnnes have proved themselves .true  - representatives of the people. Each  one of this quartette has amply demonstrated that he has the courage of  his convictions anel that their convic  tlons are right... Although only a short  time has elapsed since their first  appearance in the arena of Dominion  politics, they have made excellent  records as parliamentarians and have:  won the respect of their colleagues.  They, are by no means "silent" members; their sensible and well worded  speeches are both entertaining and  instructive.  To Mr. .Mclnnes belongs the credit  of moving; a resolution concerning the  disallowance of the British Columbia  THE ALIEN ACT.  The, expression of lofty anel broael-  niiuik'd sentiment by members of the  Dominion parliament who discusseel  the Cowan Alien Bill upon its introduction is worthy of notice. - The  opinion appeared to prevail that while  the bill is foreign to the spirit .of the  legislation of this country, the government of Canada woulel be recreant in  its eluty if it, did not make an effort to  protect our laborers and artisans from  thc operation of hostile laws adopteel  by tlie L'nited States.  "Our republican neigh heirs, inaugur-  ateil their policy of discrimination  against Canadians in 1870 with the  passage oi" a federal law preventing  wage earners on this side of the international boundary line from obtaining  employment across the border. In  18S<> the congress at Washington went  a step further anel maele it illegal to  contract for labor outside of thc.Uniteel  States to be "performed in that country.  From that to the present time"the law  has been rigidly enforced against  Canadians with increasing antagonism  until the climax was reached by the  introduction of the Corliss amendment  a few months since. While this treatment might be proper when applied  lo the people e>f some countries, it is  entirely unnecessary to direct it  against Canadians on the ground of  protecting the moral, physical anel  social welfare of the United Stales.  The Canadian artisan needs no protection in " an open field, hub if any  other country debars him from the  fruits of honest toil he should be pro-  There is a greiwing impression in the  minds of the common people that Mr.  H.

"He lias been adding nonvers to his  army," suys Dorothy, with precisely the  air Mr. Giles himself would have used  on the" occasion.- >  "An army of babe.s and sucklings! It  -Is the most preposterous nonsense on  earth," says Tom. "Those who sign his  pledge ��������� aro cither old maids who never  drank more- than pump-wutcr In their  lives, or littlo children whoso' chief  nourishment is milk."  " Your assertions are so extreme," says  Dorothy, who is secretly much amused  and decidedly sympathetic. "Are they?  Lot us test them. Who was his ''last  recruit in tlio villagu to-day?"  "Jjittlo Burny Kelly, age live," says  Mlns Browne, demurely. V  "Ye gods!" says Mr. Delmego, with a  ���������.sarcastic laugh.   ���������  "I'm so fond of him," says Dorothy  softly.  Tom starts a.s if stung.  ,  "Of him! -of that viper!"  "Oil, he's not that, Tom, Ho is the  gentlestcreaturc; ;lio���������"-  "Don't talk to me about '������������������him. : He is  in my opinion the meanest, the most unworthy of his sox.".    .   _ .   .  -  "��������� "You can't understand him if you talk  like that.

' "Yes,  indeed;    and   that lie loves mo.  Why not?'.' " '  "Why not, indeed?" says Torn, with a  terrible laugh. "Loveaway,by all means;  but as sure as vou aro theie,I'll havo his  life!".-.  "What! the -life of a poor little chil  of five years-old���������poor- little Barny!  Oil, Tom; I did, not think you were so  bloodthirsty!" And Miss Ilrowno junior  as though quite overcome, lets her face  fall gracefully into her pocket-handkerchief.  . "Barny Kelly! Why I thought yoir  .were talking of . Mr. Giles!" says Tom,  taken aback. Then he perceives that sho  is giving way to emotion, because her  shoulders are heaving omiilously, and  sho resolutely refuses to let her faco be  seen. .        _. "  Vl'ni awfully sorry if Ihavo said anything- to offend you," -he says, with  .deepest contrition, seizing her unoccupied  hand. "I wouldn't you know, for tho  world. Dorothy, Dorothy darling, speak  to me!   Let me look at you!" -  "Well,-for one moment only," ..says  Miss Browne, ipn stifled _ tone; and, as he  slowly withdraw the handekrohief,' she  lets liim sea a charming face bright with  laughter.  "Let lis bo friends," she ��������� suys, gayly.  "You know, Tom, you aro- delightful,'  but vory absurd. Say you are sorry for  tlie suspicions tliat made you accuse me  of���������of���������you know���������.with Mr. Giles."  "Flirtinz with hini?" says Tom, who  scorns subterfuge. "I-roay bo sorry for  my suspicions, .because they hurt me  inexpressibly; but I .cannot think they  are unjust. Yoa certainly are far nicer  to him than you need, be, and I think it  very disgraceful of you."  . Miss Browne knows better than to  take any notice of such a speech as this,  when peace is half arranged.  "Dear old bear!" slie. says, with a  delicious little smile, and the tenderest  pat. of her cool Angers upon his flushed  cheek. Having administered this medicine, she proceeds to, perfect lier cure.  She'slids her hand, in the simplest, jnost  ���������-.onfideutial manner in the world, through  his arm, and draws herself close up to  him. What man worth calling a man  'could'''resist all this! "Do you know,  Tom." she say.--, gently, "I quite like  being scolded by you? It does . roe more  good  than anything.    Como   now,   and  It is  "that  after  lot us have a nice long chat, just like  nnci'nf' those we used to have beforo that-  horrid old bore, Mr. Giles, came to stay  with auntie."  In this speech she ignores, with a  beautiful entirety, the fact of her having  rather run up the '.'horrid'old bore" only  a few'Short moments ago. Tom is not  pronf against so much and so sweet a  wiliness; yet lie makes even now a  de.'poi.i.o effort to maintain liis position.  "I haven't.any .'"time for a chat," ho  says, lilaiifing at his watch "Itis suven  all out.    I must gut back to my dinner."  ���������"Why not dino here? I am sure auntio  would���������"  "Ara you?" interrupts lie. "I'm not.  No, thanks; I won't stay to-day. Cold  shoulder makes a pom- repast"  "She wouldn't make :you unwelcomo,  you meant that.    .  "No; but she would   talk   at  mo   all  through dinner; and, besides,   too  much  of Mr. Giles would make  mi>. a hanlonod  'Criminal. I should .iu.I myself at Kilinaln  ham in iio timo".  "Still,'thoro would be mo," says she,  with a touch of coquettish reproach.  "There would,'" says Tom, thoughtfully; "there is always you. I3ut fnr  that, I should have gratified my taste  for traveling long ago And ycfc do you  caro whether I go or stay? Look here  Dorothy I am coming over to sec you tomorrow at .throe o'clock.1"  "Are you?" says Dorothy, innocently.  "That, is very goo.i of you,"  "It is about something particular���������very  particular; something; tliat must be settled,  at once and forever," says the.young man,  earnestly. "I can bear the suspense no  longer. 'Kcmeniber���������at three o'clock.  If I fail to see you then; I shall know  you have avoided me on piiL-po.se."  "But why, Tom?'' asks she, casting a  sly glance at him from under her long'  curling lashes. "What- is this mighty  thing vou arc coming to say to me?  Tell'inc."  "To morrow you shall know,  about.���������that is���������" stammers Tom;  is to say,  I moan to���������to���������"���������  "Propose to ine?" says slie;  whicli graceless speech she drops her  fun, and rushes away from liim into tlio  house laughing all the way.  Tom���������smiling, too, in a grave fashion  ���������saunters off to tho stables to find his  horse.  ��������� As lie disappears round tho corner, a  large fit shiny face protrudes itself  carefully from behind the clump of  laurustins near whi'ih Tom and Dorothy  had been standing.  "So," says Mr. Giles, thoughtfully  following liis face into the open walk,  "it was well I sto'.e back���������tliat is, returned. To-morrow, at throp, tho mad  Tom has arranged to meet iny bewteous  Dorothy, for tha felonious purpose of  entrapping her into an engagement, nud  inducing tho silly maiden to enter witli  him into the bonds of matrimony. , Ha  hum! ho!"  Mr. Giles, as thoush lost in some  secret communing, strokes his flabby  chin with a large, and careful hand, and  turns his eyes upon the ground. ��������� This  is against his principles, as he usually  turns thom up to tlio skies in a rather  embarrassing way that makes- tlio beholder wonder if they will ever revert to  earth again or go straight heavenward,  leaving only ' those sickly yellow-white  balls in their place. Just now, however,  there is no beholder, so <there is no  theatrical effect. Mr. Giles stares earthward. Tlie Ignoble mole oa his nose  seems to grow bigger and more opprcs-  siveias the moments fly, and his imaginings   come to a head.  At last he lifts his gaze. There i.s the  light of a noble purposo in his watery-  eye.  "It is plainly my duty," he says, In a  gentle soliloquy, "to balk tho intention  of this gortlrs.-, young man. It is���������it  miist.be���������part of my mission to separato  tliat guileloss maiden from tlio clutches  of the unbeliever. Clearly it has boon  appointed that I should use' any ingenuity I may possess in this vilo and  wealky body" (oh, tlio pounds of ilesh  upou it, and the tons it weighs!) "to  circumvent the plot so carefully laid for  to-morrow. 'At threo o'clock,' said ho.  'Blatant ass 'Ha! 'Drunk as a fiddler.'  Ho! 'Old reprobate.' Hum! hum!

I will even parmit  you to ally yourself with another who,  though" doubtless above you In many-  respects, i.s yet sullicie.titly humble-minded  to be willing to" share with you your  ample fortune." '  He bows his meek head ' upon - his  spreading breast, ������������������ und moves cautiously'  away, lost in exalted thought.  Already   the   desirid   morrow   has arrived, calling itself by   its "new   name���������  to-day.    It   U   a   charming.morning all  blue and ������;old and mer.-y witli the music  of ninny birds.  ' "Ah! ��������� a day in whicli to uplift ourselves and rejoice with a righteous joy!"  says Mr. lilies at lireakfast beaming upon  Mis3 Browne and Dorothy. "May I bo  permitted to inquire, Miss Dorothy, as  To what you are going to do with yourself to-day?"  "Eh?" says Dorothy,, somewhat puzzled by tlie cxtivme suavity of his tone.  "Why, nothing, I should say.1-  "Ha! Good!���������vory good!" says Mr.  Giles, rubbing-his hands witli quite a  saintly glee, and smiling at her. blandly  over a plate piled high with buttered  toast. '!I shall, then, with a clearer  conscience bo able to ' trespass on your  time. My busy life, spentin forwarding  'the cause' aud shedding the true light  and bluo ribbons on all .around/ knows  but few idle days. This is one of tl_ein.>  I would, therefore, gladly employ it iu  gazing upon tho beauties of Nature, in  pondering'upon the manifold charms nf  this gracious'* earth of ours. In short,  I would ask you, my dear Miss Donthy,'  to take me to that island you spoke of  yesterday, from whioh ono may behold  so grand a view of the surrounding  neighborhood."  '.'Dini.sh' Island?" says Dorothy, somewhat aghast. Tiie island in question Is  one of the chief objects of interest in  that part of Ireland where she lives, but  it is a long way from Tlie Towers, the  resilience of Miss .remima. Browne. It  is a troublesome island, too���������only to be  got at with the ,aid of- a ferryman, who  i������ anything but "constant in his attentions  at the point of embarkation. "It is so  far away,' says Dorothy, "and' tiie day-  is so warm, and���������'*  "Oh, not ton warm," says Mr. Giles,  "filiat season can compare with the  joyous summer?"  " 'Summer lias come again,  Tra la la, tra   la la!'"  It would be impossible to describe the  amount of godly urbanity Mr. Giles  throws into the esreeding ill-tuned voie3  which he employs to chant this gay  refrain. "We should, my dear young  lady,   revel   in   the   glad   sunshine,   fit  emblem of a perfoo!; nature, all warmth  and tenderness."  i Ho looks consciously down upon the  remains of the buttered toast, as''though'  modestly aware that si.r.li a nature as  he has described is all liis own.  "Dear Miss Browne," he says to the  maiden aunt, "add your persuasions to  miue, and induce your niece to accede to  my request."  "It is the vory day for a trip of the  kind," says Aliss .Ternimii. eagerly. "Do  -,my dearest Dorothy take Mr. Gib's to  Dinish. It will occupy an ent'.ro morning and afternoon going there and coming.  Oh, do tako him, my dear Dorothy!"  There i.s agonized entreuty in Miss  .lemima's voice and eyes as she gazes  'imploringly "nt her niece. What on earth  shall she do if anything interferes with  this blessed chance that has cropped up  of disposing for a whole morning of this  good, good man? Dorothy, receiving  tho agonized glanc" in full, takes pity  on h._i\ Slie agrees instantly to Mr.  Giles' proposition.  "But wo mnsi start immediately,"  she says, "a.s I must bo homo again by  three sharp. I���������I havo a pressing engagement."  "Certainly certainly!" says Mr. Giles,  blandly.  The ponies being brought round to the  door, they start for the ferry in half an  hour or so, leaving Miss Jemima upon  tho stone steps, hoiving and scraping an  adieu to theni, with tlie light of a glad  content upon her face. -'  "It is qtilto ten to ono, yoii' know, if  we find Micky Maguire,tlio ferryman, at  his post," says Dorothy, as they draw  near the end of tlieir destination. "He  is very seldom at liis post. All, I . havo  maligned him! Thero he is, by the greatest good luck."  "Such good luck," says Mr. Giles  Micky, who is a tall Celtic lad of  about seventeen, with a .twinkling eye,  seeing them approach, looks not only  willing to ferry thom anywhere, but  quito as if ho had been expecting them  long years ago.  Stopping out of the phaeton, Dorothy  and Mr. Giles walk slowly toward tho  boat, whilst George, thesroo;.], whipping  up his pomes, starts for home again.  "Do you know" says Dorothy in a  pained tone to Mr. Giles, "once or twice  during our drive here 1 fancied I noticed  tho smell of brandy! Did you? I do  hope George is not   growing   unsteady."  "Dear ma! I hope not. I hope not  indeed!*' says Mr. Giles with much con-  corn. "I must speak to hini. I shall  bring tiie artillery of my eloquence to  bear upon htm.- -I havo seldom" with  charming dillidence "known it to fail.  But thero is- something disheartening  about George's nose! Have you noticed  his nose?    Hcct���������terribly red!"  They step into tho boat. Half-way  across from' tlio mainland t > the island  Dorothy's face grows distressed again.  "Thero" slie says leaning toward Mr.  Giles," I noticed it again! didn't you?  The smell of that horrid brandy I mean.  Oh I hope it isn't Micky Maguire!"  "I hope not indeed," says Mr. Giles  with a severe glance at the unconscious  Micky; "but I have my doubts���������strong  doubts. Oh lio.v thankful I should lie  that Providence directed my steps to this  brandy-ridden spot!"  Tlmy havo reached the island now. and  are stepping ashore; Mr. Giles, with  heavy gallantry, assists her to terra  llrma with so mistaken an ardor as almost brings her into his arms.  Righting herself with a sudden  ���������vehemence, she stops back from bim on  the graveled shore, and frowns slightly.  "Again I am distressed by that abominable thing!" she says. "Surely there  is brandy somcwliera!"  "Do you kuow," says Mr. Giles, with  tlie hesitating air of one just awakening  to a curious fact, "I begin to think I  ! must be the delinquent. I havo a dry  i throat, a very dry throat���������a sad afllie-  | tion, "dear Miss Dorothy���������and, odilly  , enough, the   lozenges I use for the relief  ��������� of it smell like   brandy, though   I   need  I liardly say to you thai; they  have nothing  in   common   with that most   pernicious  liquor."'  |     "Ah," says   Dorothy:    "what- curious  i-lozenges!"  "Very, very curious," ' says Mr. Giles.-  | __Dorothy*_s gaze,'   j������_Jitbloj_pu'zzled,_  j wanders over tho   water,, and   marks the  ��������� ferryman rowing away from them to the  shore that is quite half a.mile oil.  I "You told him ��������� what hour lie is to  return for us, says she, carE!ossly  "Yes; oh, yes, says Mr Giles.  It is a realiy charming lctle island;  and fi'r"somii time Dorothy occupies herself in showing Its beauties to Mr. Gila.-.  But lie has grown singularly dull and  distrait. - He seems   totally   unimpressed  ' by thc charms .of  his   surroundings, and  presently   Dorothy   J!nils, to her infinite  - disgust, that he has even ceased   to . pre-  -. tend admiration for   aught but her, and  is  busily   employed   in   demanding her,  1 hand'in marriage.  1 "   To-refuso a man   i.s   a   simple  matter  ' enough; but   things grow diflieulfc when  thc man refuses to accept his "No" with  a proud submission.    Mr. ��������� Giles   declines  to receive it at any pi-U-o.  I     "Yon will think ib over, dear girl," lie,  says, confidently, witli   a   fat squeeze" of  .her hand.    "Oh," yes;    believe   me, you  will think it over.  -"I sha'n't," says Dorothy.  But    lie   consigns     tliiu     determined  - remark-to llie .winds-with   a wave of liis  obese., fingers.  "Yoii will," he says, "and I shan't think,  the worse of you i later .on for this  .maidenly shrinking; comfort yourself  with this assurance. An inward conviction tells me that Nature lias framed us  for each other. So thinks your ��������� good nun t  ���������our good aunt",I might say now," with  a deep chuckle.     ' ="  "You may siy what you like now, or  then or any otlier time," says Dorothy  indignantly "it will make no difference  whatever to anybody concerned." Hern  slie glances at her watch, and finds it is  loug after two o'clock. Good gracious-  why doesn't. Micky come? She fixes hen  gaze ��������� earnestly upon the far-off shore,  and after a "bit 'makes out the. boat but  alas! no. Micky. Oh miserable boy! Oh  perfidious ferryman!  Turning her back "resolutely   upon  the  good   Mr.    Giles   she .seats herself upon  the grassy sward   and   taking her knees  into ' lior embrace gives   herself   up to a  secret  reviling   of   Fate.    But    Fate   is  impervious   to   her   reproaches; it takes  no heed.   Slowly . with  leaden heels thd.  ' minutes   go   by   until   three o'clock   is  ' reached and. then it is   astonishing with  what rapidity they lly.   Dorothy'sdiscom-  t fort-ire'  is   Indescribable   when she dis-  I covers that live o'clock, has been readied  i and still no tidings of Micky.   Her heart  dies within her.    Oh what will Tom not  think?   Of   course he.had arrived at The  Towers at three o'clock   the hour !ip' had  appointed to meet her to���������to���������to tell her  tliat lie loved her; and   what will Im the  result when ho finds her absent���������wilfully  ah;ent   as   he will certainly   think?L He  will imagine her as  happy and enjoying  herself with this most hateful man beside  hur, who,- regardless of her misery is  keeping up - si continual chatter on  matters absolutely repugnant to her! Oh  thu horror of being chained against her  will to this small island! Is thero nc  chance of escape? And j-et how ilill'ereut  would be her imprisonment if only Ton;  had been the. oue ordained to share it with  li-.r!  All at once it dawns upon her' tliat ne  place would be altogether bad with Tom  by her side. Sho goes still .further antl  declares' to herself that thero are few  peoplo profurable to Tom. Another half-  hour of vain wailing and slie willingly���������  nay tearfully���������admits tliat thero i.s nobody in all this wide world who could  dare to place himself in a category witli  Tom.  And possibly all this time while l.ur  I heart is full of liis image lie is believing  her false! It is terrible! She feels that a  very little more waiting, will reduce her  to the edgo of weeping. Slie stirs impatiently.  "I think" says Mr. Giles blandly���������  "that is, it has just occurred to mo my"  dearest girl that you appear a little  uneasy. About that 'pressing engagement' you mentioned this morning, ch?  Dear,dear! how remiss of me to forget it'  I hope it will make no difference. This  boy's non-appearance is most remarkable.  Shall I haste to the other point of  observation and sec if there be any signs  of hi.-n" Ho rises to liis feet with much  alacrity as lie says this.  "Yes go; go to���������go anywhere you  like and stay there," says' Dorothy who  is now in a frame of mind not to be  described.  "I fly to obey yonr commands," say..-  Mr. Giles, with affectionate ardor and a  beaming smile. "But I slia'n't be long.  Don't���������don't,my dearest girl, let anxiety  for my safety prey upon you in my  absence."  Quitting her side, he skips coquettishly  round thc corner. But slie has hardly had  time to congratulate herself on his.di..-  app.aranoe, when he returns to hor  again with even a jauntier air than tliat  with Which he left her. It is indeed with  quite a rollicking air he reseats himself  bosidc her.  "Vain was my hope," ho says. "Our  boatman continues obdurate. Sighs and  tears are wasted upon him. Ho comes  not. Fortunately, however, my sweet  girl, the evening is fine."  He has dropped upon tho bank close  to Dorothy. She draws away from him  with rather a suspicious air.  "Yos,"   she   says,    slowly .���������������______>_'ig al  him; and then���������"You've bcro having  another lozenge, eh?" she says, very  quiet, but in a peculiar tone.  The charming yellow of Mr. Giles'  complexion Incomes on the- instant a  brilliant saffron,-  "I have," he says. "Sharp nosa, eh?  Those lozenges are the most remarkable  things of the day."  "Just my idea," says Dorothy. "May  I seo one of them "  '-Dear girl, how unhappy it makes me  to be obliged to refuse even so small a  request of yours!" says MrrGiles mournfully.' " A''.'moment since and I would  have complied with it,'although���������you  remember what I told youabout my dry  throat���������the compliance.. would have left  me speechless."  "Tlio want of compliance would bo  more likely to havo that effect," thinks  Dorothy to herself.  "But tlie fact is," continues the apostle  of temperance, playfully, "that, like a  greedy school-boy, I ate thu last of my  goodies just one minute and thirty  seconds ago. If I had known another  little bird was pining for one,    I  should  "If you nicau mc,",, interrupts Dorothy, coldly, ,"pray. ceaso your regrets. 1  feel certain your lozenges Would bo most  hateful to me. It ��������� is six o'clock,- aud  auntie will be greatly distressed at our  prolonged absence. Where can that boy-  be? You are sure you told him tho exact  hour he was to return hero for us?"  "I gave him tho most.minute directions," says Mr. Giles, with a twinkle of  his small black oyes. "But, clearly lie is  not to bo depended upon.

"It could liardly be worthy enough,"  says Dorothy, starting into'lifo and gazing wrathfully upon' the late Micky,  who is rowiug leisurely" toward them  with a face innocent of guilt.  "Ha! Very good! very good!" says Mr.  Giles. , "Wordy���������worthy; quite a play  upon words-" Then Micky ships his  oars, the boat gratis upon tho beach, and  presently Miss Browne,"' too indignant to  address liim, is seated in tlie =tern, with  Mr Giles' bcsldeiier .Soon thoy reach the  opposite shore, but ' having told the  groom early in the day that they would,  walk home, there -.are no ponies at the  point to meet them The walk is performed in comparative silence, Dorothy  being too depressed and augry for conversation, Mr. Giles too hungry. A.s  they approach Tho Towers, Tom Delmege  is to bo seen upon the balcony, with  knitted brows and foldod arms,'in the  attitude Napoleon is popularly supposed  to havo used during his journey across  Tlie Alps.. Something.in the. brows, or  the arms, disheartened the good Mr.  Giles. --.->'  "I think I shall enter tlie house ������>y tho.  side-door." lie says to"'Dorothy'', with*',  some haste. "Pray remember me very  kindly to your excellent cousi:i, who I  see is awaiting . you What a cheerful  countenance is his! Ah!" -  -  Ho sighs, beams fondly upou her, and,  after a last glance at Tom, who has now-  raised his head and i.s steadily regarding  him, makes a rather undignified exit  round thc corner. On goes Dorothy to  her fate. She knows by Tom's eye that a  battle i.s imminent, and,-- lx_lng a  thoroughly good girl, with a fair conscience, she determines to fight it'out  /with him inch by inch  "Well, here I am," she Says tin him,  brightly, in the checrfulest' of tones, as  a beginning to the hostilities."  "So sorry you hurried yourself,'��������� says  Tom, taking his cigar slowly: from Ilia  lips and dropping it over thc balcony.  "I didn't'! retusns she sweetly "Don't  make yourself uncomfortable about  that.    Have   you for^_>ttcn that you'told  i me you would be here to   see   me 'to-day.  ; at three?   I   didn't   forget  it, and quite  j meantto be back, but you-see I wasn't."  i "Well, no," says Tom, "you weren't."  He has altogether declined to look at her  up to this.  j "That cureless ' boy, Micky Maguitv,  never brought the boat to meet us   until  | an hour ago.

Special Correspondence to Tin. Minkk.  Although tbe present is a hnd period  for promoters, matters are developing  slowly, perLnpa, but none the less surely.  Loudon is not so full as it will be iu May  aud June, but there are a fair number of  British Columbians io town and with  them I have hud mauy interesting  interviews. I have fouud one and  all enthusiastic upon the potential value  of your mines but their earnest talk has  uot infected others beyond their own  circle of acquaintances'. Our public is so  deeply interested iu youth Africa aud  West Australia that none can be induced  to subscribe'to new mining undertakings.  Of course there is a large number of investors who instead oE tosing over miues,  have made money.and it is to that section  that I look for the beginning of that renaissance which I am convinced awaits  your fields. There must be however no  doubt about titles, as uncertainty on  that score always creates suspicion.  The Galena inines have been granted a  special settiemeiit for April 27th by the  Stock Exchange. IE our readers may re-  member it was said at the time that only  ������11,1)00 had been subscribed by the outside public but the compauy bin applied  for, and obtained a settlement for 525,000  ������1 sliares. the whole being desrcibed  as fully paid.  Mr. Thomas Woodhouse, M. I. N. M.,  has sailed for Kootenay ou behalf of a  syndicate. This gentleman has hitherto  been    more    concerned   in     Westraiia.  Mr. Grant Gondii's great compauy, the  Gold Fields of British Columbia is, I  ' hear, making arrangements for produc-'  iug a uew undertaking which may see the  light of day in May.  -Messrs. John Taylor & Sobs are send-  iug to Nelson and liossland a representative to inspect likely properties fer clients.  The ptirm stands'exceptionally high in  the estimation-cE the-miniug world.  ���������   ' SEW REGISTRATIONS.  The Province o.f British Columbia  Minera's Syndicate, Ltd., has been registered with a capital of ������3,000 in ������1  shares.  The Minerals Development of British  Columbia, Ltd., has heeu formed with a  capital of ������10,000 iu ������L shares, tbe obj.ct  of this company being "to search, prospect, examine aud explore mineral lands  supposed to coutain minerals or precious  stones in 1-iiti.h Columbia or elsewhere."  Mr. J. .(. Hill, the president ofthe  Great Northern railway is iegistered U6  stnying at a hotel iu Piccadily. '  TirE   .VAli EAGLE AGAIN..  Messrs. Gooderham and Bjickstock  . sailed for Canada on Saturday. It is  rumored that their property���������the Wai  Eagle���������has been offered to a London  syndicate but at ..present it is impossible  to verify this statement. It is non  thought" that the Gold Fields ot British  Columbia abstracted -CGO.OOO from the  public and the New Gold Fields oE British Columbia abstracted ������44,000. The  latter appears to be enjoying a healthy  existence. I would add that out oE two  and half - millions sterling allocated to  new mining ventures during March, the  principal amount represented British  Columbia".  The British Columbia Review has been  _ inaugurated, in London to watch ovei  the interests of the province, regarding  whose mineral resources so much has  been heard, of latr. According to the  first issue of the new journal some 40 odd  companies havo already beeu formed iu  London in connection with British Columbia affairs wbilo.a much larger num-  ��������� ber have been, registered locally to-work  the large raatalhferous deposits which  exist all over the province. The Biitish  Columbia Review will endeavor to keep  English investors fully posted with  ollicial statistics, regarding the development of the different districts and in its  first issue publishes absolutely the first  complete copy of the recently issued gov-  ' ernment report giving the total product  of the British Columbia miues to date  under proper classified heads,.  Uecent registrations' are practically  nil although a somewhat mysteiions uu-  dertnkifag named' the Quesnelle River  Gold Dredging Company, Ltd., has beeu  stocked for ������55,000. Frankly, I do not  think much of it in its preseut guise, and  I question if many subsciiptions will be  received in London, although the response may be greater in Scotland where,  as I have said before, British Columbia  business veot.ues ' are watched very  .-.closely.  "  COMPANY, MEETINGS. .  ' Meetings are being held this week of  the"Cauada Company, the British Columbia Land  and Investment company  = and the British Columbia Mining comr  pany.   The proceedings, as regards the  , two-last, are private, but the. former was  a more important affair. t  Hall Mines shares are depressed; the  quotation today is,not better than $5.50  Those who purchased stock iu this company at between SO and $15 are becoming  decidedly impatient and uneasy^and do  not disguise their disappointment.- It is  "of no avail to apply to the head office of  the company for information; no ques-  tiouB concerning the condilionof the property are answered there even if asked  by those financially interested. An impression prevails here that the stock has  reached a point lower than its legitimate  value, and yet uo adequate explanation  is offered. It is to. be hoped that the  small shareholders will, in the near future, receive some reasonable and satisfactory evidence that their shares are  worth more., than  the preseut price.   I  ��������� shall have more to say- about this company and . its management upon another occasion.   Jubilee Celebrations.  The cities of Victoria and Vancouver  have commenced extensive preparations  for the celebration of the Diamond  Jubilee on the twenty-first of June.

"Mr. Giles has better things to engross-  his attention than -a mere-, frivolous  .amusement, like tennis. Oh, Dorothy,  why will you not . sift the wheat from  tbe chaff!"  "Am I ono of tho better things,  auntie?" says "her niece, mischievously,  laughing buliinil; the large .fan she is  waving indolently to and fro, as though  to coax "a breeze to her out of^the scented  pine woods beyond. "Thank you, dear! 1  always felt, you thoroughly appreciated  my many \irtuos. no matter how silent  you might have-been about thom."  "Tut, you saucy girl!!' says Miss  Jemima; hut a s-tnile that will not be  forbidden curves her lips. Truly this  nieco of hers is out of.the common sweet.  Oh, that some good wind would blow  her inclinations thc way of Mr. Giles!  -As her thoughts get to this point, the  gentloman in question may bes seen  advancing towm-d them across tho" snn-  sniitten grasses." The very daisies seem  to bow their little, heads at liis approach.  Perhaps they are afraid of the huge foot  that supports his pertly person. He is a  tall man, stout, as ho is tall, and what  is commonly known as smug-faced.  "Ho bas a huge unsightly mole upon liis  ileshy-nose. His eyes are sunk with fatness." One might deem it likely that oil  and' wine,had been the ingredients csed  ��������� to raise that imperial gloss - upon his  ruddy cheeks. But the very name of  wine is an alo.nination in the- eat-3 of  lhe Blue 1-ibbonito. Offer him a glass of  even that meek Manila, and see how he  will recoil from you. as though a demon  lies- within your tankard. He has a.  plausible manner, saint-like, smooth. A  "beautiful manner" fays Mis.. Jemima  'Brown who Jiaving fallen a victim to liis  doctrines srime months ago ha.sd been uncomfortable ever since. Thc soul of hospitality, she uow feels that;if true to her  principles, she i.s offering with every  glass of wine to her friends the chance of  eternal damnation. Perhaps there have  been years in her life when Miss Jemima  had felt happier than in these last six  months, when what she fondly believes  to be her true, duty has dawned upon her.  . "My dear Ilomthy" she says to her  niece as the sanctified Mr. Giles draws  nearer "oblige ine by being civil to him.  lie. will want you to go for a walk with  him. my dcarw Go! I���������I don't feel as if  I could converge spiritually with him  to-day. Ijoss of sleep last night, general  debility, rheumatism, neuralgia, dys-  pep���������"  She gall'-er.-; up her crewei-work with  ������������������jutto  juvenile  -alacrity,    and   vanishes  round   thc comer with a speed to which  rheumatism is unknown.  "It is my firm opinion she hates him,"  says Dorothy, looking after her wrath-  fully; and indeed, there is a celerity  ubaut the el.ler Miss Brownols movement i  that suggests tho idea of fleeing beforo  the foe.  Dorothy makes the best of unpleasant  circumstances.. She greets tho fat Mr.  Giles with becoming civility, and even  consents with a sigh to accompany hiin  to the lake, half a mile away, where the  swans float gruoeftill.v. This will take  her from Tom and his society, and,  though sho lias not altogether arranged  with herself her feeling toward Tom, still  she knows she i.s sacrificing something,  as she turns. toward tho distant hike.  Tom and she are cousins, and have  laughed with each other, and quarreled  with each other, since time immemorial,  and just lately they have taken it into  their heads to be almost in love with  each other "Still," as Dorothy said to  him when he pressed for an engagement,  "thero i.s no knowing whut, or who, may  turn ii]), so it is as' woll to keep one's  solf free"  lly this you will seo tint tho engagement has netither been ratified nor even  partially arranged; which tact is to Tom  Djlinega a bitter griovnnco, Miss Browne  junior bciug-as lovely as sho is fascinating, and an heiress into thc biirgain  Not, to do Tom jus.icc, that hor'monjy  lias anything to do with his affection  for hur  Of late,- ho has been sorely exercised  in V,. mind about the attentions that  Mr. 5ties���������the apo.tlo of t.-mpernnce���������  has showered upon Dorothy, attentions  favorably regarded by Miss Jemima,  who Iris brought horself to that pitch of.  admiration for the apostle that shit iuight  easily be said, In vulgar parlance, to  "swear by him."  Just at this moment Tom Dolmoge is  in a towering rage. All tho afternoon  guests have doparted. It is nearly seven  o'clock, and still Dorothy and Mr. Giles  are. off the boards. He is on tbo very  verge of suicidal despair,whon the gleam  of Dorothy's white gown shining  through the trees, restores him to  sanity, but not, I regret to' say, to bi.  temper. .She is accompanied by Mr.  Giles, looking .smoother, mj.-c rubicund,  more sanctified than usual.  Tom advances toward them, fell  determination in his cye. Dorothy, who  is a careful girl, marks his eye.  "Ah, you, Tom!" the says, with tin  utmost bonhjmie, much experience  having taught; hor that there is great  virtue in the lirst word. "So glnd ynu  haven't gone yet. I was afraid I should  have missed you, I have beon so long  away.    We are awfully late, aren't, we?"  The very audacity of the way ia.which  sho acknowledges her criin.i reduces the  angry -Tom to silence. Ho is still  inwardly boiling vtith rage,, but hardly  known how to let.off tho stsam..  "Tho descunt of evening was am a/.I ugly sudden; down it came upon us like-r-  likc an-avalanche, or���������or a feather bed;  soft, you kuow,but confusing," says Mr.  Giles to Toin with a smile-replete with  brotherly love. "We weren't thinking of  it, you see. Wo���������wo were thinking of  something .else"���������with a godly chuckle.  "Did yon ever, lose yourself, Mr.  Delmeg3, in a pleasant abstraction of  that sort?"  "No," says;Torii_ "I didn't. I always  have my- senses quite about mc. I sold mi  lose anything except perhaps my patience���������or my bmiper!"  "Ha!" says Mr. Giles witli a pious  sigh, "to lose cither of those-is sad,  very sad. It is that terrible thing "called  temper that creates most of the crimes  that disgrace .our morning papers. It  leads to violent language, manslaughter,  murder-���������"  "Ay, murder!" says Tom, glaring at  him. "It often leads to murder. I���������I  feel right down murderous at times."  "My dear young man," s-������ys Mr.  Giles," you should try to conquer all  such degrading feelings. It is with pain  and loving regret I havo of late very  frequently noticed tho growth of this  mental deformity, that threatens to  uproot all the grace that doubt-losslie;  dormant within you, .though. as yet I  grieve to say belief in it must be an act of  Xaith. _ Try, try^o^sonquer your wicked  when   you  "feel   "the fit" coining on  self,  ���������you.  I feel It coining.on now," says Tom,  advancing toward him.  "Itis coining on ���������  ���������uncommon strong, too.   I have seldom  felt it so bad.    Who   spoke .of murder a  moment since, ch?"    He   brandishes his-  lists and advances up to. Mr.   Giles.  But that worthy evades hlai.' He jumps  nimbly to thc other side of the flower  bed, - full of glowing geraniums, that  stands botweeu - them, and stares at hint  in an imploring fashion that savors  strongly ot fear.  ,"My   good    friend,'   my"-  dear J Mr  Delmego!" he punts, unctuously; "control  yourself   Murder is a fearful thing   You.  don't mean to tell mc that you���������"  "Yes, I do!" says' Tom, furiously  "That's precisely it I'm dying'to be at  somebody���������at you!"  Ho flics across the bed to hiin Mr Giles  having grown a - pale yellow with ever-  increasing fright, springs away from  him And now commences a most undignified race round' and round tho Innocent flowers -  "Speak to him, my dear Miss Dorothy!  Kxercise your influence," the sacred  influence of beautiful woman!" shrieks  Mr Giles, when passing her; whereupon  Dorothy makes a faint sign to Tom It is  particularly faint, as she is so convulsed  with laughter behind her fan that she  can scarcely breathe. - Tom, though i-till  revengeful obeys ic Ho pretends" to - trip  over thc gnarled, root of a beech-treo  growing, near and Mr Giles taking  advantage of tho supposed check to0-his  adversary, steps hastily on to the walk,  and may presently he seen mounting the  balcony in such hot haste as soon puts  him out of sight. ' '  _ '"Oh Tom how could you!" says Miss  Browne junior, now giving freedom to  her mirth. "Oh you tad boy! .Did you  see his .face? Y_������u'are better than Bant-"  ing to him or anti-fat. He will be quite  slim to-morrow. ��������� Poor old soul what a  fright ho wns in!"   -  "Coward!" says Tom contemptuously.-  "And so"���������regarding her with angry  disfavor���������"this is ��������� vour last conquest is  it:-"  "Conquest dear?" says she innocently,  as though not understanding and being  quita athirst for knowledge.  "Yes exactly; conquest" says Tom,  uncompromisingly. "It is excellent English.  Don't yon understand it?"  "Oh, of course! I see what you mean  now," says Dorothy, as though jnst  enlightened. "Bnt ; what a silh- remark  of yours! No wonder I didn't grasp its  meaning at ll_st.'V  "Well, I hope you are proud of him,"  says Tom bitterly, "now you've winged  him."  "Every bird that ilies isn't game,"  says iliss Dorothy demurely.    "The cap- THE MINER, NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1S97.  Wxt MMntx.

THE QUEBEC ELECTIONS.  SHnalioii  Scents  to Promise a Victory fiir  the Liberal OiipiMltiou.  Montreal, Que., April 23.���������The local  election campaign is drawing to' a clote.  With polling day only "a little more than  two weeks off both parties are trying to  size up the situation. There is no great  issue on which tbe" parties have divided.  This perhaps is to tbe advantage of tbe  liberal opposition, for tbe electors everywhere are fickle and want a change.  Flynn bas been premier less tban a year.  He bas hardly bad time to do anything  himself, and while bis record is largely a  series of promises be bas to shoulder the  faults of bis predecessors. The greatest  of these was the three per cent, loan  negotiation by Premier Taillon in Paris  at 77, which was immediately sold at an  advance, which lost over $503,000 to the  nrovince.

Tbe.East Kooteuay gold mines excitement was aroused by tbe discovery and  location of several very large quartz  ledges on tbe north side of Perry creek  and west of Saw Mill creek, a tributary  of the St. Mary's river and a stream much  washed in, the" seven ties, for placer gold.  Two or tbree miles above this placer  ground, or by road and trail 25 to 30  miles westerly from Cranbrook, these  quartz ledges are now located. For five  miies west and two miles east of Ellwood  creek, a small branch - of the Perry, the  country has. all been located along the  course of three, if not more, quartz ledges,  which have proved auriferous. .  On the tributaries of the Wild Horse  creek, famous for tbe production in the  past of its placers,many mineral locations  have been made, od one of which, the  Dardeuelles, mining is being done.  This claim and' the Mother Lode  and Ethel are owned by Banks Brothers  and 0._S. Faigeele of Fort Steele. The  Invieta Gold Mining (placer) Co., Ltd.,  of England have secured about one mile  along Wild Horse creek, from which  much gravel bas been washed during tbe  last 30 years.

SIX Mi KEED,  AN    AVALANCHE   ON    THE   RED  MOUNTAIN   RAILWAY.  AlUllroailer'N Camp Struck  hy u Muss of  Tree*, Uravel anil other Iti-lirl..  ���������turlax lta������ I.I...I-.  Ab a result of a lund slide tbat occurred  las. Tuesday morning on tbe lied  Mountain railway about one mile  north of the international boundary line,  six meu were instantly killed, one was  fatally injured and two were severely  hurt. The killed are: Charles Olsen,  Thomas King, Dan McCefferty, Pat  Desmond, Robert, M. Wbinuey nnd John  Contou. The injured are: Max Engle-  hardt, George Bice and John Clark, the  first named fatally.  The unfortunate men, with several  others who escaped injury, were section  hands and were camped on a gentle slope  on the west side of the track and a short  distance from the sawmill. The  shack was just opposite a gulch on Lake  mountain, and it. was down this gulch  that a tremendous avalanche of boulders,  trees, gravel and other debris came while  the. men-were sleeping.  What started the avalanche is still a  mystery. Some believe it was a cloudburst on the mountain, while others tbink  the lake, from which tbe mountain takes  its name, must have burst its banks.  The stream which flowed down tbe gulch  before the accident was scarcely a foot  wide. All day Tuesday it was a fierce  torrent five or six feet wide and three  feet deep.  The course ot the avalanche is plainly  marked. It bas stripped the banks of  tbe gulch clean on either side apparently  for a width of 20,or 30 feet. As it ueaied  tbe bottom, where tbe gulch was wider,  it began to spread out. Uigbt in ils  course and on the cast side of tbe railroad track was a knoll about 14 feet high.  This knoll is obliterated first.' Continuing on its course it swept over the rail-.  road, which was about 300 feet from the  mouth of the gulch aud extended 100  feet beyond. The mass of debris is 300  feet wide and tor tbis entire -.00 feet in  length averages uot less than 12 to 14  feet in- depth.. Beyond- this me rocks,  trees, nnd mud deposited in Jess quantities for 400 or 500 feet in every direction,  but the main body of debris appears to  hnve been deposited in nn area'_0_> feet  Jong by 400 feet wide.  The site of the railroaders' camp was  only about 10 feet fiom the tailioad  track, so that' the slide extanded about  90 feet beyond itin solid mass and iu le.s  quantity for several hundred feet further.  The peculiarity. most noticeable about  the slide is the fact that tbe main mass  ot debris hnd almost perpendicular walls  and to this fact two men owe their lives.  The first intimation any of the sleeping  laborers had that any disaster was im-  pending was when'the young man who  slept with the foreman was wakened by a  rumbling sound which he took to be a  car off the truck and ��������� bumping along the  ties. He woke the foreman aud the two  got up to investigate. The foreman wns  the last to leave the tent but could only  hove been a very few feet behind bis companion, yet tbe latter escaped the slide  unscratched, while' the body of the foreman has not yet been found.  The work of recovering the bodies of  those who were killed bas been vigorously prosecuted, although, owing to the  great amount of debris, is has progressed  slowly. The task is, however, completed  and tbe bodies have received a decent  burial.  lustily when his fn������t and furious hammer  blows bent upon the drill beads.  When Captain Hall announced the  result, a wild clu-er went uo. f'lnok  smith Davis, who is n good drill sliai per-  er and nn expert^ohanper as well, said  that he would put in a ������ 100 forfeit and  bet anything I'-nm 81(10 to SijOi. thai  Burns can b-at McLeod and Ross siug'e  handed provided thnt he (Davis) sharpens  the di ills fer BurLs nrd does the changing.  Hon. Mr. .-Martin's Philgo.  To the Kditor of Tiik Mi.VKit.  At the meeting at Kamloops to which  reference was made yesterday io the  house by Mr. Seinlio, Mr. Martiu pledged  himself to resign bis portfolio should nny  measure for a money bonus or guarantee  ia aid of the British Pacific scheme to be  brought down by the government, reserving to himself the right to acquiesce in  auy further land grant. - We made a  memorandum iu writing of tbe terms of  Mr. Marlin's pledge ou the same day.  Mr. Martin had evidently no written  memorandum to refresh his memory,  and his statement last night that be was  only- pledged agaiust supporting a grant  of annual interest to the amount ot-8240,-  000 is not corteefc. There were other  gentlemen present, personal friends of  Mr. Martin, and pi litically opposed to  ourselves, whose recollection of wliat Mr.  Martin did pledge himself to is likely to  be less biased tban his.

Minister of Agriculture for  Canada, to select an exhibit of Hritisli Columbia's forest products, as well as specimens from  the mines in the several sections of the  Province. I beg to intimate that I will be  pleased to receive from saw mill and mine owners such samples as they may deem advisable  to be sent to Sweden's exhibition, whicli opens  early in May. I trust intending exhibitors will  so arrange it as to have their products reach  this city not later than the 24tli inst. Each exhibit, should be distinctly labelled, giving name  of article, exhibitor's name and locality where  it came from, and if deemed advisable a des  cription thereof.  As thc period is limited I respectfully urge  promptness in the matter by intending exhibitors, whose samples will be forwarded free of  all expenses from Vancouver. The exhibit of  each and every individual or company will be  an advertisement to those making same.  V-.  C.   __-_DI.LDG_-.  Vancouver, April 7,1S97.

At the rock drilling contest held at  Rossland, Mike Burns and Jack l.iley  carried of the honors and won the championship of British Columbia'and a purfe  of ,$250 The result was: "Burns und  Riley, 35J^ inches; McLeod and Ross,  32 7-16 inches. Captain Wm. E. Hull  was judge and George Owen olliciil  time keeper.  Euch team drilled, 15 minutes changing drills every minute, aud each man-  changed striking every half minute.  McLeod and Ross began at 10:30. McLeod did all tbe drill changing. lie kept  a .cool head and throughout the few  minutes allowed to make a record set a  swift pace for the opposing team to follow. At the call of time, while the depth  of the hole was not known, it was believed  that Burns and Riley would have to  make things hum if they expected to  win. ' McLeod raised an objection just  before Burns and Riley-'commenced  drilling tbat their drills were not sevec-  eighths size the full distance of four  inches above the bit, but Captain Hall  did not allow tbe objection. ' McLeod  was* complimented upon his bard work  and bis friends claim that if his partner  had boen in better ondition tbe result  of the contest might have been  ditterent.  When Burns and l.iley were ready for  action and the giant Burns was straining  his ears for tbe call of time there was a  hush in tbe andience, for it was evident  tbat when he hit the bead of the drill the  fire would fly. Tbe rock was bard granite,  but from the time Burns' hammer fell ou  the drillhead in the first blow and the  sparks flew like a shower of meteors, it  was evident tbat if a drill did not break  or some other'accident interfere, the  battle of drills was theirs. Burns weighed 197 pounds but if auy one thought he  was too big to be active tbat idea was dispelled when he had made a few lightning  drill changes. Burns did all tbe changing clsverly and Jack Riley was cheered  N' OTTCE is hereby given that plan, profile  and book of reference of a branch of the  above railway from Slocan City to a junction  with the Nakusp and Slocan Kailway near  lioseberv, are now on tile in the Land Registry  Ollice, Victoria.
