President II. E. Croasdaile, of Nelson, was iu  the chair,- and Mr. A. F. Corbin of Eossland acted i!is secretary id the absence of  Mr. John Keeu of Kaslo. The Nelson,  Slocan and Ainsworth mining divisions  were well represented by the presence of  a number of prominent miniDg operators.  Iu his opening address i>Ir. Croasdaile  scored the Provincial government for its  inconsiderate treatment of the mining  industry of Kootenay.  It was resolved that in view ot the  combine of the varioU3 powder _ com-  nanie3 and the consequent rise in the  price of that article, that if capitalists  would locate powder works in this dis  trict the members of the association  would do tlieir utmost to encourage the  project.  A discussion ou the Provincial tax on  timber and eordwood resulted in Mr. J.  13. McArthur being appointed to draft a  resolution censuring the government for  its policy in this respect.  A committee ot nine was appoiuted to  study tho Companies Act. Each member of the committee will send his ideas  and suggestions iu thc matter to the  secretary, to be considered and discussed  at the ue^t quarterly meeting. The committee consists of Messrs. McArthur,  McLeod aud A. F. Corbin for liossland;  Messrs. Fletcher, Robertsou and Selous  for Nelsou; Messrs. Alexander, Fraser  aud Keen for Kaslo.

The Hall  Mines Company Turning  Out  Largo  Quantities  of  High Grade Copper.  The calcining and refining furnaces of  the Hull's Mines smelter this week  turned out the first copper that was ever  made in British Columbia. It is very  fine grade, beiug 97 per cent, in copper,  Silver aud gold and carrying value to the  amount of $530 per ton. This includes  about 850 in gold. From the day of  firing up there lias not been a hitch or  miscalculation of auy kiud, aud much  credit is due Superintendent Paul John-  sou for thc results obtaiued. Between  10 aud 12 tons are beiug turned out daily.  There is a sufficient quantity of matte  now ou hand to keep die furnaces busy  until the end of the month; after that  the old bottom taken from the blast  furnace will be treated. This contains  about .������50,000 in value. As soon as  there is sufficient copper on hand to  load leu c us,(200 tons), ii, will beshipped  lo Eugland for separatum and final treatment. , The reason giveu for sending it  to England is that it'will be cheaper in  the eud thau to send it to the States.  HON.   D-   W.   HIGGINS   MAKES.  STATEMENT TO "THE MINER."  A  Tin:  rru������l������ll������s Olliccr  ol   I lie Legislative  Assembly Will .loin (lie Keloriii  1'urly of It. ������'.  Hon. David W. Higgins, speaker of the  legislative assembly of British Columbia,  arrived in the city yesterday.  The position that be has held in the  public affairs for many years, and the  quiet dignity and justice that has signalized bis long and uninterrupted chairmanship of the local parliament, have  made bim well and favorably known to  those at all familar with the political  history of this Province. Espousing the  cause of tbe party which had its origin  with the advent of the Elliott administration, iu 187G, he has represented the  electoral district of Esquimalt without  once suffering defeat since he first came  into the fierce glare of the political arena.  His life has been au interesting and  generally successful one. During his  earlier career he figuied prominently in  Pacific Coast journalism, and was largely  "���������responsible for tbe, at one time, great  success   of the Victoria Colonist.   Mr.  lliggiLS came.to this Province with the  lirst settlers, attracted by the reports of  fabulous discoveries ot gold. ' lie is  familar with the times and tcenes of ihe  Fraser river, Cariboo and Cassiar excitements, and shared in all the vicissitudes  of fortuue of those stirring days. His  business successes gave him a comfortable fortune, which, however, has been  somewhat impaired by recent losses.  Although no longer a young mau, Mr.  Higgius retains all the vigor and cute*  prise tbat so strongly characterizes tLe  pioneers who first revealed to the civilized world the gloiious ruissibilities of  British Columbia.  A lepresea'a ive cf the Misee called  upon Mr. Higgins yesterday afternoon  nud requested au interview concerning  the political situation. The houoiable  gentleman was. however, extremely n-  ticeut, although he was, by close questioning, induced to make a very import-  ent admission." It was to the effect that  he could no longer conscientiously en-:  dorse tho general policy of the. Turner.  administratiou. The peculiar' position  which Mr. Higgius holds .in connection'  with the legislature naturally prevents  him from giving his reasous in-detaii,  but he has admitted enough to fully  demonstrate that he will be arrayed  against the government at the close of  the next parliamentary session.  Asked if he favored the organization of  the Opposition forces, Mr. Higgins replied:  ������" Yes; it would be highly desirable at  llu^rWI-UriAri)., to be   Resident I tlio proper time, but that time-has not  ~. ..        * _ I -     _������. _      vAf   .���������.w.vmrmsl Aa   ar\r\r*    *\a   dflr.ou     liAtt'a\rop  the time six mouths, the defendants had  secured certaiu rights by filing ou the  land during the' interval between April  Sth and the date the extension was  granted. An effort was also made to  show that the railroad company had not  compVed, iu the selection of its blocks,  with the provisions of th<j graut, but  this part of the argument was not euter-  tained by the court. The defense was  reoiresentcd by Mr. Blake personally,  an".'. by Mr. Gait, of Rossland.  Mr. E. V. Bodwell appeared for the  plaintiffs.

Manager A. H. Buchanan, of the Bank  of Montreal,when asked if thero was  any tiulh in the report that the Pilot  Hay smelter and Blue Belle, mine had  been sold to tbe Omaha-Graut Smelting  company, answered iu the negative. A  deal is, however,' pending with other  parlies and will probably be completed  by July 1. " ^  The Yoiiiiss Ainerlea Group.  R. 15. Hrown has let u contract for  $2500 worth, of development work on  the "Young 'America group, on the  north fork of the Salmon. The Young  America group consists .of five claims,  with large iron capped ledges, carrying copper, gold and .silver, and similar  to the Rosslaiid .ore. The work is to  be pushed ahead immediately.   ���������   .  Xo Inquest.  Dr. Arthur, the district coroner,  went to Kaslo Saturday evening to  inquire into the death of John King,  who died from a fall from a hluit" on  the south fork of Kaslo creek. ' He decided that an inquest was unnecessary  and gave orders for the burial of the  body.  t'linnsc ������r Time.  A change has been madeiuthe running  of the freight train on the Kaslo A: Slocan  railway. It now ai rives in Kaslo in time  to allow-ore shipments to be forwarded  the same evening by the Alberta. This  arrangement relieveb the International  of annoying delays at Five Mile Point on  her downward trips.  yet arrived. As soon as it does, however,  I sincerely -"believe that the plan suggested by the Minek would be the most  practical and effectual. Uuder t.he  auspices of the Reform Party of British  Columbia, a convention should be held at  which every electoral district -iu the  Province should be equitably aud  thoroughly represented by the friends of  good government. Then a platform  _enunciat_ing_the^p_arty'������ principles must  be drafted and fidopted. With sucii a  doctrine of government as this would be,  and a thorough organization of supporters in all districts, the result is a  foregone conclusion. The present Administration would be overwhelmingly  defeated at the next elections. Tbe  Mixer's position is unassailable; let the"  good work go ou.V ,_. . _  Wbenquestionedconceruingbis opinion  of the government's railway policy, Mr.  Higgins said:  "It is not for me at preseut to discuss  such thing!?, but I think lhat my actions  at the last, session" of tho legislature  should be a sufficieut answer to your  question. I left th_s speaker's chair and  decended to the floor of the' house - to  emphatically protest against the passage  of the Cassiar Central Railway charter  aud land grant because I considered it  a most iniquitous piece of legislation.  The grant should never have beeu given.  I am bitterly opposed to such waste of  the public domaiu. I.may also say that  1 favor the immediate revocation of all  railway land grants to those wlij have  not complied with the terms under whicli  the lands were.obtained.  "How about the present system of  taxation," was asked. .  "I must decline to go iulo that matter  at present,',' was the reply. The . equalization of taxation is oue of the most  important features of legislation; all  classes should be made to share the  burden without the slightest discrimination.*'' .        '  In further, conversation Mr. Higgius  was induced to say that he favored a  redistribution of electoral districts, aud  hopes to see the government bring down  a bill for that purpose, atthe next session.  He believes that Kootenay should be  given a number of extra representatives.  (.'oii.lcuscil Items of Iiirorninlioii Coneeru-  ins Properties Near Xelson.  The Home-Payne syndicate will probably build a wagon road, eight miles  long, to their properties in the Lardeau  district.  The Canadian Kiug group near Salmo  will ship a carload of ore this week.

He  also refused to add the attorney-general's  authority to the suit, but stated that the  defendant's position would not be prejudiced by the issuance of a crown  grant to the railway. The <\-ise was  vigorously fought by both sides. The  contention of the defense was that the  railroad had forfeited its right to the  laud by failing to survey it within live  years as provided by the grant.

In every part of the British Empire,  aud where ever there are British subjects, the sixtieth- anniversary of Her  Majesty Queen Victoria's^, glorious  reign will be celebrated with great  enthusiasm - and rejoicing. ,. The  millions of people who recognize her  as their sovereign ruler love her for  her most noble qualities, and respect  her as tho head of the mightiest of  nations. In the great metropolis of  the Empire the occasion will be observed with befitting ceremonies. It  will be the greatest display of magnificence and -pageantry of modern  times. Abroad, if not so splendid, the  celebrations will certainly be of equal  loyalty and ardor.  The Imperial sentiment is more  pronounced now than at any previous  time in the history of the nation.  The principal government ollieials of  the various colonies and dependencies,  now assembled in London, manifest a  marked desire for a closer union with  the mother country. Tt is not improbable that the celebration we are  about to observe may culminate in  the adoption of some plan by which  Imperial Federation,-'tliegloriousdreani  of every loyal British subject, may be  speedily accomplished. ;  A   CANADIAN MINT.  820,000,000 in foreign gold coin because  there is no mint in Canada.  The entire cost in connection witli  the government currency i.s in the  neighborhood of $100,000 annually.  To ell'eet a saving in the cost of printing our paper ciu-rfiicy, we have taken  the note printing " contract from a  Canadian firm and given it to a foreign  company.  Ofthe thirty-four principal coutitriis  of lhe world, twenty-thrcu have paper  currency. Of thc latter, tliere aro  only six that have a larger paper currency per capita than Canada. OT thu  thirty-four, only nino have less silver per capita than this country.  Australia has nine times as much gold  per capita. Great Britain has iiiiuv  than live times a.s much gold and three  times as much silver. France lias  over seven times as much gold and  over twelve times as much silver.  Germany has nearly live times as  much gold, and nearly lour times a.s  much silver. The United Stales has  nearly four times as much gold, and  eight times as much silver. Per capita,  Canada stands only twentieth on Lhe  list as to the amount of money in  circulation, having, between gold,  silver and paper, only ._>_). 82. "We have  nearly twice as much paper currency  as gold and silver combined. AVe  have not a quarter thc amount of  silver coin wo should have. As a  consequence wc arc compelled to send  to the United States foi' a supply.  Senator Mclnnes estimates that the  expense entailed in establishing.-! mint  with an annual capacity of two million  pieces need not exceed 875,000. Of  this sum $50,000 would be devoted to  the construction of a suitable building,  and $25,000 to thc purchase of machinery, dies, etc. The annual cost of  operating such an institution should  not exceed SS.000 or 89,000 annually.  "We once had a mint in Canada,  immediately before the union of the  two crown colonies���������Vancouver Island  and British Columbia���������in 1S07, one  was established in New Westminster,  but after striking oil a few $2.50, So  and .$10 gold pieces, the plant was closed  hy the order of the governor, Sir James  Douglas, for no other or better reason,  it is alleged, than to allay the intense  jealousy that existed between the rival  cities of Victoria and Now West-  minster.  TlicTeli"ort of Senator-Mclnnes; uf.  British Columbia, to have established  in Canada a mint for the coining of all,  gold, silver and .copper currency necessary to meet thc commercial requirements of the country, deserves great  praise and the earnest consideration  of parliament. That the honorable  .gentleman haslinado out a particularly  r strong casein favor of the .scheme will  be conceded by anyone who has taken  the trouble -fo^i-oiid his extremely interesting speech,"delivered in the senate two.weeks.ago. lie.has produced  facts to show that a mint can be established and operated al a direct-profit, and not a drain upon the public  treasury as some-people supposed:  A detailed statement furnished by.  the finance department, covering a  period of' fifteen years, from LSS1 to  I MX', shows a total coinage of$:*:. 102.111  of silver and $212,525 of copper. These  figures also show that our government  has made an annual hot profit of $00,-  510 or nearly $ J. 000,000 in the last  fifteen years in having its silver and  copper coined in Kngland, notwithstanding we had to pay the royal mint  three per cent, for coining our silver,  and a Birmingham manufacturing  firm ten per cent, for coining our copper, a total of SI28,115. The gold  product of Canada has been over $73.-  000.000. in the last thirty years. Of  ���������this large amount British Columbia  has contributed over $_>1,000,(X'0, Nova  Scotia over $11,000,000, Ontario, Quebec and the Territories the balance.  Nearly all this iiiimenso "amount of  bullion has Keen "shipped out of the  country���������principally" to the United  States���������at a loss of over five per cent,  to the producer.  . At the present time there is about  SIO.000,000 in gold in" the Dominion  treasury, nearly every dollar of which  is United States coin. Tho chartered  banks have in their vaults over SS.000,-  U00o in gold which is also practically  United States coin. In round numbers, between the government and  the chartered banks,  we have nearly  THE  MINING  ASSOCIATION.  The first regular meeting of tho  Kootenay Alining Protect've association, held at Bossland last Saturday,  was,an event of no"littlo importance.  The convention may be said to have  marked a new epoch in the. history of  Kootenay. Previous to the organization of the Association there existed  no body or board to represent' the  mining industry, and, although tho  development hero has.been vigorously  prosecuted by enterprising individuals,  there can be no denying that better  progress would have been made and  the country would havo benefitted  materially if such an institution had  been sooner established.  Haying for its chief object the fostering and development, of mining interests as considered generally, and  being composed of intelligent, experienced and conservative business men,  the. Kootenay Mining Protective association has. within it's power the  opportunity to do a vast amount of  good.��������� So-far-it-has-afforded-noreason"  for tho belief that itwillfail iii"this respect. The entire proceedings of last  Saturday's session were "marked by  sound, sensible discussions, the result  of which will certainly be productive  of beneficial results.  The opening- address -of President  Croasdaile is especially noteworthy.  It must be remembered that thc  association thoroughly "represents tho  mining interests of Kootenay, .and-  has no political alliliations whatever.  Yet we find its chief officer voicing  sentiments and refcring to conditions  whicli this journal has promulgated  for months past. "After briefly refcring to the groat mineral wealth and  many natural advantages of the district, Mr. Croasdaile is reported to  have said:  "With a full knowledge of these  circumstances we might naturally expect that any government would do  its utmost to encourage and protect  an industry of such vital importance  to the general welfare ol" the Province,  but unfortunately such has not been  the spirit manifested during the last  two years. .Mining is still'in' its infancy itf this district. It is a.healthy,  thriving, growing infant, witli a long  life before it, yet, though still an in-  .fant. it is called on to bear the burden  of a grown man. Not only has the  miner been deprived of important  privileges, but ho has now to pay  taxes never before levied in this Province, taxes on the output ol" the mine,  taxes on the mining timbers and oh  eordwood."  In his arraignment of the Victoria  ringsters,   Mr.   Croasdalo might have  gone still further and expatiated upon  ! the meagre appropriations  that each  j year have been iii.-ulc for ro.uls, trails,  I bridges,   etc..' and  other matters of  joijual   moment.     He.   however,   said  , enough  to fully demonstrate that the  ! unwise  and   unjust    policy"   of   the  j Turner-I-ithei-Dinismtiir    regime   to-  | wards the principal  industry of this  I Province  is  fully   recognized  by  the  i Kootenay Mining  Protective  association.  congress have taken up the matter of  duties on load ores. There has boon  a persistent effort since the committee  increased thc rate from 1 cent to H  cents 11 iioiiiid to have the house rate  restored, and oven Lo secure Lho restoration of the rate as arranged by Lho  AVilson Act, which was three-quarters  of 11 cunt por pound. The coiiimiLtco  now finds itself compelled to decide  whether the smelting interests of the  country, or the western silver mine's,  shall be protected. It has been represented on Lhe part of Lhe former that  unless certain lead fluxing ores of  foreign countries aro admitted under  favorable conditions. American smelters will be driven out of existence. On  the oljior hand, friends of Lhe western  miners demand protection against'-'he  peon labor of Mexico. The mutter i.s  still unsettled.  i*noFi:ssio\Ai; OAitns.  EXPORT DUTY ON ORES.  The government at Ottawa has arrived at the conclusion that it is advisable without delay Lo pass legislation  Lhat would enable Lho. governoi-gen-  cral-in-council to put in force a proclamation imposing an export duty on  certain ores.  The sooner this idea is carried out  the better it will be for the'industrial  interests of this country.  The mineral field in Kootenay i.s  sufficiently developed to call for the  adoption of a policy by which the entire out-put of the mines may be  treated in Canada to Lhe great advantage of mine, owners as well as  operators of smelters and refineries. At the present Lime, the value  and tonnage of the ore mined is  worthy of attention. Although the  district is only in its first stage of  development, the weekly shipments  average 2,500 tons, worth $125,000.  This, however, is a very conservative  estimate, nnd in order to treat the  matter fairly the fact must he remembered that at the present season of thc  year many of tho host properties arc  either leaving their values in thc  slopes, awaiting for more .favorable  freight and treatment rates, or arc  storing the product :until it can bo  concentrated or subjected to some  other preliminary treatment in  order to save, transportation  charges. It is safo to say that  $S,()00,000 'worth -of 'gold,-"silver,  lead and copper ores will be mined in'  Kootenay during the year IS97. Another important point, that must not  bo over looked is the" plienominal  development that is being done  throughout the district. ' On all sides,  hundreds of men are steadily employed exploring the numerous remarkably promising prospects, and it  is a noteworthy fact in tho history of  thc Kootenay camps that there has yet  to occur an instance where intelligent,  careful expenditure of labor has been  unproductive of good results. That  the value of the output of ore in this  region .will almost double every twclve-  months for the next several years  may be accepted as a certainty.  In all otlier respects the elements  for thc economical reduction of ores  exist within the boutidi-ics of this  district. No difficult}7 remains so far  as thc necessary iluxing is concerned,  and the problem of cheap and excellent fuel is satisfactorily solved by the  arrangement under which the Crow's  Nest Pass railway will shortly be in a  coiiditioiTWdtiliver a.s much coal from  thc fields of East Kootenay as may be  required. .. '  The time has arrived when the  profits - derived from treating  the ores of Kooteuay must go to Canadian smelters. ..This can best be accomplished-by a judicious interference  on tho part of tho Dominion" government, as proposed by Mr. Fielding, the  minister of finance.  Post Oilice Inspector SweetnaiiVs  opinion that a daily mail service on  the Columbia liver is not badly needed  will not moot with tho approval of the  people of Kootenay. The inspector's  assertion that American railway  routes ail'ord us adequate facilities is  also at variance with public opinion;  Seeing that the transportation facilities exist between . Arrowhead and  south Kootenay points, tho government should nt once take advantage  of the convenience. Under" the existing circumstances it is rediculOus that  this .district should have only a triweekly" service, to and from C. P. YL.  points between Vancouver and Winnipeg.         According to the Conservative  Party, the preferential trade and anti-  coiiibinc clauses of the new tariff  regulations are iniquitous pieces of  legislation. According to the result  of tho "last general elections, a . largo  majority of the electors of this country have arrived at the same conclusion  concerning the Conservative Party.  U.

I  It was u lint Sunday in June. Thc bell  was ringing tor the morning service in  tlie Dover orchoiiox church, nnd tlie ppo-  plo were Hooking up the hill on which  Uio sacreil cilificu .stood. The farmors'  wives and daughters woro thoir thinnest  dresses, iiml were arnieil with stout funs  and sun umbrellas; tho men looked  wretched and steaming in their Sunday  coats. The sun beat llnreoly down on  Dover village, on its whito houses and  clover Holds. Tlio bres nml insects wero  droning so loud tlmt peoplo could hear  thom insido the clmrcli. In tliere it was  poolor, thoush still warm enough: everybody was fanning.  Tlio bell tolled, and the peoplo ^kept  coming up thc aisles. David Ayres, in  his place in thc second row of the singing scats, watched tliem soberly. Ho was  a tall, stoutly-built young man; his faco  was hrown and hniivy-featiirod, but  handsome.    He hud a fine bass voice.  A titter and whisper spread through  thc row of female singers bcrforo hint.  "Look at Almira King!" The flowor-  wreathod bonnets shook witli mirth.  "What are tho t;irls laughing at?'-  thought David Ayres.  A girl was tripping up tho aisle below, drosseil in a pink silk gown, hewil-  deringly draped and plcatud. She wore a  littlo white crape bonnet with a knot of  crushed roses. '1 ho young man thought  slie looked beautiful, and saw nothing  laughable about it. All lio wondered at  was how the Kings enuld affoi'd such a lino  dre-?=. and how the girl happened to como  to ohurch anyway. He had never seen  her there before.  Tho girl entered, a pew well towards  tho front, and settled down, liko a bird,  with a pretty flutter. All Davidcouid son  of her between the people were lior  shapely pink shoulders and knots of yellow hair below tho little bonnet. When  the choir sang the flrst hymn, however,  all the congregation rose and turned  about to faco the singing seats, and iie  took a good look ab lior as ho rolled out  his sonorous bass notes. She had a  charming, round, chil'lish face, simple  mid sweet. Slie was looking down at her  pretty gown with an innocent simper.  Shu pulled the drapery in the hack n little; then she glanced over her shoulder  to see if it was right; then sho smoothed  the front of tho ovcrskirt tenderly.  ".She's mighty tickled with hor new  dress," reflected David Ayres sagely; but  lie felt none of the sharp-eyed (einalo  dingers' contempt at the girl's silly  vanity.  All at once Almim looked up and met  tlio'yniing man's eyes fixed full ripon  her. Iter eyelids dropped, and she crimsoned to tho lace round her whito throat.  Ho could soo, even at that distance, that  ehe was confused and - disturbed. "I  won't look at hor'again, if it makes hor  act that'way," resolved lie; and forthwith fixed his eyes on his book as ho  sang.  After the service was over ho went  down to the vestry to Sunday sehool.  He had n class. The session occupied  about an hour. Coming out, he fell in  with his cousin Ida Iiabcnck.  "Ida," said lio abruptly, "I wish you'd  toll mo why folks were laughing when  Almira King came in this morning. I  didn't see anvthing to laugh at. Dirt  you?"  "Why, David Ayres, that dress was  perfectly ridiculous for a girl to wear to  meeting. Don't yon know it was? I  don't wonder folks laughed." "-'���������  "I do," quoth David stoutly. "I think  tho dross-was all rigiit. She looked like  a doll in it, anyway. I guess you girls  were jealous."  Ida colored up. She was a plain girl  herself. "I guess we weron't jealous,"  returned she with spirit. "You men will  overlook anythk'.g for a pretty face, and  that's all there is about It. Every blessed  thing that., girl came to meeting for this  morning was to show hor dross.*'-  "I don't see,'-' snid her cousin, with  =low emphasis, "what does make you  t;lrls for ever pick cm each other. I should  -tliinkr-when-you-siiw���������ono���������of���������yonr-own-  i.ind look as pretty and sweet as Almira  King did this morning; you'd feel proud  of her in ono way, and say the nicest  "things about her that you could."  "Well, tin? dross, was all out of plnce,  and 1 don't think that's very bad to  snyi" said Ida, trying to keep her temper. "But it's no. uso arguing with you  about it, David: men don't look at'such  things liko women."  ���������=  "I don't think they do," replied David.  Whon Ida got homo sho told her  ir.other .that she didn't know whether  David was limy or meant to bo aggravating.. *  "I suppose I made Ida mad," reflected  David, as ho sped along tho dusty road  In his open buggy, keeping a tight rein .  on his smart horso; "but I don't care.  If there's anything I hate, it's one -girl  plokingon another. Ida ought to be  broken of it."_  The Ayres farm was situated about a  mile and a half ont of Dover village.  About half a mile out David passed the  King place. The house was pour���������a low  red cottage���������but thero were some fertile  fields about it. The King farm was  small, but, as far as it went, productive.  - David,' as he whirled by, caught a  glimpse of a woman coming round the  corner of t.he house from the garden wish  a pan in her hand full of beans, She iv:i.  "in odd figure, shore and stout,' with a  masculine width of =houlders. Her calici  dress cleared her think ankles, her black  hair was cut short, and she won: a man's  straw'hat.  "Pity such a pretty girl as A'.niir.i  King has got such a moth'';-!" thought  David, after his swift glance at her.  When lie got home Jie found dinner all  ready.     Everything was on    time   in tbe  Ayres household.   David's mother   sat by  the sitting-room   window. . fanning   herself and   reading   her    Uible,   while   she  waited for hcrson.  She was, a fair, stout  woman, ' in   an    old-fashioned     muslin  gown.    The ground was   wliite,   with a  brown vine   straggling   thickly   over it.  She looked up   pleasantly   a-: David   >':i-  lered, after puttiug up liis horse;  he was  his own hostb-r.     There were soft curves  in her face, whieh were deceptive.    Jiirs.  ': Ayres was- not just such a woman   as her  ! looks denoted.  Strangers generally found  I themselves taken  aback    by   her, after a  , little.'   She was a  very   devout   woman,  ; but sho hail not   been    to church to-day;  j she had   been   afraid   to    undertake   tho  iride in the hot sun.    Her health was not  i vcrv good.  | Tliey had dinner t'ircctly in the largo  ji-oom, "running the width ofthe house,  ��������� which siTVi-d as dining-room anil kitchen  : in thc winter, and dining-room akine in  ���������the summer; there was an unfinished  .back room, into which the cooking-  ! stove was then moved. Tho Ayres luri.i-  I house   was   extremely    substantial   and  comfortable, but the old-time notions of  l)..vi l's ancestors wero still prevalent in it.  Tho hired girl sat ilowii to tho tablo  with Dawd ami his mother. She was  n'vur. forty, as plump as Mrs. Ayros,  though nut 11= fair. There was a cast in  her eye-i. She had lived in the Ayres family ever since David was born. She had  tho reputation of being none too strong-  minded, but that hud never boon any  objection to her in Mrs. Ayrcs's opinion.  If anything, she en joyed tho prestige  which her own superior intellcet gave  her, cheap triumph though it was; nnd  Susan Meam had always been a f.iithfcl,  reliable help.  There, was cold meat for dinner. Mrs.  Ayres wus conscientious about any unnecessary cooking on thc Sabbath.  "Who was at church, David?" asked'  his mother, watching hini carve.  "Oh, tho fulks who usually go; except  ���������well, that. King girl was tliere. I never  caw her in church before."  "You don't say so! I wonder how her  mother happened to lot her, she's such a  strong spiritualist Woll, tho girl can't  amount to much, with that kind of  bringing up, poor thing."  "Sho looked real   pretty,   mother; and  slii) was divsscil pretty, too."  "What did she have on?"  "Something pink���������silk, I guess.''  "Pink silk !    I never���������"  Mrs. Ajrjs wont on  with   the subject,  finding it   inter,.sting; but   David   soon  contrived to.change it.    For some reason !  hfl did not feci as   hot   to   tako   up   tho  cudgels for Almira with   liis.   mother  as  he had with liis cousin [da. |  After  dinner   lie   went   upstairs.     Instead of entering his   own room, ho stole  stealthily into the   large   front   chamber  over the   parlor.    It   was   not occupied. |  The best bedstead and   feather   bed wore  in tliere, and the   best bureau.  The windows .wore open, and a   cool   green light  oame in through the blinds.   He sat down >  by  one   of   them,  and fell   into a young  man's-day-dream, with him   as shy   and'  innocent as a girl's.    "I  suppose,"   said  he to himself,   "if   I ever���������get   married,  we could have   this   chamber   fitted   up,  and���������some new furniture   in it.    Almira  King did look pretty to-day."  He had scon her dozens of times beforo,  and admired her, but not as ho had today. It seemed a pity that such a foolish  thing as a pink silk dross should swerve  such a mighty thing as a human heart.  But feathers might (ly along to paradise, if the wind happened to be that  way, ami point out its direction, to  things more important.  As for the, girl herself, it was perfectly ,  true that slie had beeu to church merely  to show hersolf in her now dress. Tho  dross had to bo worn and shown, else  what was tho good of having it at all, ;  aiid the church was tho only available  place, in wliieh to display it at present.  When Almira returned that morning  her mother was out in tho garden picking vegetables for dinner. She followed  her there. "Mother," she called, "I've  got home!"  The woman looked up1 and saw tho  rosy creature standing there witli the  most intense and ..unselfish pleasure.  "Well," said she, smiling-till she looked  foolish, she was so pleased, "What did  the';folks say to you, Almiry?"  "They didn't say_, anything, mother;  but���������they stared, 1 can tell you."  "I'll warrant they did! Now, deary,  you'd bettor not stand thero so close to  the beans, or you'll get somethin' on  your dross. You'd better go in an'  change it, an' git rested, while I git, dinner. ''  '" David Ayres sits up in tho singing  scats, and���������you'd ought to shave seen  him look at mo, mother, onco."  "I'll warrant lio did."  The mother stared fondly aftor the  girl as sho went oil* across the green  field. "I wish David Ayres would take a  shine to Almiry," said she. "He's a  good, stiddy young man, an' thero ain't  anybody but him an' his mother an'  Caleb, now Mr. Ayres is gone, an'there's  good deal of money there. Almiry would  be well purvideil for.  P'r'aps he will."  When Almira came into the house she  went straight to her own room. It was a  bedroom opening out pf tho parlor. Both  rooms had been fitted up for her with a  daintiness strango to tho rest of the  -house.���������Her-slecping-room-had��������� n-pretty-  set iu it, and a laco curtain at tlio window; the parlor a roal Brussels carpet  and stull'eil chairs. Mrs. King had worked  hard for it, but she was amply paid by  thc feeling that her "Almiry had "as  prettv a room to Fet in as. any girl in  Dover."  The glass ou Almira's bureau would  not tip far enough for her ti see her  whole figure, so she stood on a chair before it, and turned round and round admiring hers-jlf. She was radiant wit.'i  the simplest and most uncoii'-ealcd vanity. "L do look so beautiful!" she said,  quite loud. Tho memory of David Ayrcs's  admiring ga/.o underlay her delight- in  herself, and strengthened it. Presently  she changed the beloved dress relue.tuntly  for a blue muslin which was trimmed  with luce, and pretty too. She had n good  many dainty appointments. Kverylhing  about her, to tho embroidery on her un-  ' derclothiiig, was nice, through - h.-r  homely mother's caro. She lay down on  the lounge in her parlor, then, with a  paper of sugar-plums and a child's pap.-r.  She dearly lovod little pretty, simple tales  an<l sugar-plums. She heard ber mother  iii the rkitchen moving about, getting  dinner, but she never thought of such tithing as helping her. Still, she was nor.  selfish. She had only ben brought up in  unco'nsciouness of her own obligations,  and she had not keenness of wit to see.  them /or herself.  Once in u while sho   stopped   reading,  and thought   about   David : Ayres. -   Sho  wondered, should she go to evening meeting, whether hn would ever   wait on ..her  home.    Ptptty as Almira was,"no   Dover  young man hail ever paid  her the slightest,   attention,    beyond    admiring looks.'  Tliey were kept aloof   by   the   peculiarities "of her mother.    "I've a   great  mind  , to go fo.meeting  to-night." reflected Al-  i mini.   "I can't wear niy pink silk in the  ! evening, but Iv.e a good mind to go."  1      Two weeks from that   day tliero was a  I disturbance on-her account in   the Ayres  ; household.  I It w.-is a little cooler than tho  I former Sunday, and Mrs. Ayres  i had been to church ��������� to morning  ; aud fifrenioon - scrvicy too���������and she  ' had spent the .nooning at hor married  ' son's. Caleb, who lived in tho. village.  . David had driven home. He hail sum.  ' things to see to, and Susan got his din-  , ner for liim. i;  When the mother and son rode home  I together finally, after the second servic:'  i was through, he knew by certain infalli-  ' bio signs in her face that something was  , wrong, and he felt guiltily what it was.  i h-he =n'nl nothing about it till they  ! reached home: then, when be had put  ; his horso up. and she bad rh:������ng":t her  be.-t blaek silk, t'v ri'ck'Tiin-j came.

"Como here, David," said she; "I want  ta speak to you."  He tried to have the talkst-indirig outside the window, bin she made him come  in. So lie stood leaning against the sitting-room door fingering the latch impatiently, while she sat facing him in her  big rocking-chair by tho window. '-  "David," sho began, "I hoard some-  thing about you over to Caleb's to-day,  and 1 want to know if it's true. I heard  you were going with that Xing girl;  that you've been waiting on her limim  from meetiug, and taking hor to ride,  and that that's whore you wore so lau  last Sunday night, whon  I thought   you  o  to Caleb's.    I w.tnt to   know ifJ it's  t       " :  Tiiu stout young follow had been  brought up with a droad of his fair-  faced, firm-handed mother; ho ��������� looked,,  boyish and blushing. Then his manhood  asserted itself, as it should now, If ever.  "Yes, mother," he replied, liis sober eyes  fixed on her; "it's true."  "You don't say   you   mean   to   marry-  that King girl, David Ayres?" .  "I think I shall, mother���������if she'll have  me."  "There ain't any doubt of that, .1  guess. David, if you marry that girl,  with her Spiritualist mother, you'll kill  ni"."  "O mother, don't!"  "I mean what   I   s'iy,   David.    You'll   o  kill me.    You'll havo to   choose between  your mother and that girl."  Tho hard jaws seemed to show through  Mrs. Ayrcs's soft cheek������. A blue tinge,  appeared round her mouth and nostrils.  There was au ever-present dread In the  Ayres family. Healthy as Mrs. Ayres  looked, she had an organic heart trouble,  and doctors had said a good dwil about  the danger'of over-excitement.  David looked at her changing face in  alarm. "Don't let's talk about it any  mni-e now, mother," said ho soothingly.  "Dont you worry over it."  But she was not to be put off. She realized thc ghastly viiiitagc-ground on which  she stood, and she was tho kind of woman to make the most of It.  "David, you won't   marry   that girl?"  "I'll tell you whethnr 1 will, or not in  a week, mother, and that's the best I  can do." Ho looked astonishingly liko  his mother as he said ' it. His face had  the samo determination,- almost obstinacy,  of hers.  Slie, eyed him sharply, and gave in.  "Well," said she. ":  All that week she hardly seomed liko  the same woman to hiin. Sho petted and  caressed hini as she had never done bofore. She descended to womanish wiles  to accomplish her ends, for the flrst time  in her life. But, if she. had known it, all  this had no effect whatever on her son.  He had too much shrewd sense not to ������  see through it, and feel almost an angry  contempt for his mother in consequence.  Her health and tht fear of injuring her  were the only things which moved   him.  The next Sunday he told her, .with "  inward shame and bitterness, that ho  would give up the girl. He felt as if ho  was giving up his manhood at the samo  time. Ho had tried arguing with his  mother a.little, but found it useless.  Tho girl's mother was her ground of  objection, and she stood firmly on' it, no  matter how plainly her unreasonableness  was shown todier.  "I'd rather you'd die than marry   into  ^suoh a  family,    David."    she   hail   said  once.  So David kept aloof from pretty Almira, and the girl began to fret. Sho  did not conceal her grief from hor  mother���������she was too dependent on her,  and she was not that kind of a girl.  When she came homo from meeting  alone she cried on her mother's shoulder,  and many a time tho two watched hand  in hand by the parlor window for the  lover who did not como.  Almira had really reason to feel aggrieved. David's courtship,' though ������o  short, had beeu precipitate, after tho  artless country fashion. Enough had  been done to raise her expectations,  though tliere. was nothing binding.  As the weeks went by, and slip received no attention from -David beyond  an occasional evasive nod a.s he drove  -past,- her-spiri ts-droopeil-mnru-and���������moro. -���������  Sho had never had any trouble, and sho  was bewildered.��������� This was her Jlr<t lover,  aud she had not known any hotter than  to begin loving liim vehemently.  She tried to attract him back in all  the pretty, silent littln���������' ways sho could  think of;' she could not take anv bo'd .  step, she was too modest. She would sit  on the door-step, in a pretty dress, with  her hair carefully done, iip, when shu  thought he might pass by.  "She went to church in her   pink   silk,"  and glanced timidly and wistfully up  at  hini when the.choir   was .singing;    but  David   would sing sternly on and   never -  look at her.   ". _  Then she would go home feeling ^that  there was no uso hi having a "pink silk  dress or a protty face. Tills poor littlo  rose of a girl, of a Sunday night, afier  her- lover had slighted her still onco  more, might as well have been a. burdock weed or a ragged robin for all tho  satisfaction sho took in being a ro=e.  She altered in hor looks;    her   simple,  smiling face grew thin and  pitiful.    Her  mother   studied   it-like   a   chapter   in -  which    her   own   future   sorrows   wera ,.  written out.  Mrs. King worked in the field and  garden like a man, and many a timo  she tramped home through the hot sun  just to get ono ' look at Almira, then  back "again. Slio , wa.. an energetic  woman.

She had assumed  the management of affairs from the first,  after, he married her,v_u stout hired girl  iii a " neighboring farmhouse. - Ho . had  really been incapable himself of carry,  ing on this little farm, .which his father  had left him. Every little luxury whicli  she could procure for Almira she always  had from her earliest childhood. Now  that this trouble had come upon her,  she did more; she relinquished for thu  time a habit of depositing small sums  from her earnings iii the savings-bank,  at fixed intervals-, for future emergencies. She planned many a Fiirprise for  Almira in tho way of new gowns and  trinkets. The girl was young and trilling .  enough to brighen momentarily at the  sight of them, and that was ample payment for her mother. But as soon as she  had worn them, and found that David  did not notice her any more on their account, the brightness died away. Mrs.  King spent money recklessly in those  days, such hard-earned money too.  "What's the use of my iayiu'up money."  she asked herself, "au* Almiry lookin'  like that?" THE MINER NELSON, B. C��������� SATURDAY, JUNE 19,  1897.  Finally tlie mother grew almost desperate. She suffered far more than hor  daughter; .she wntjhed for David's com- ]  iug with a stronger anxiety. Sho began  to form wild plans for bettering matters. ���������  She even thought of arresting thc young  man,on his way past the house, some day,  and freeing her mind of him. She thought  of going to seo liis mother. But, coarse  and unwomanly as sho was in appearance, there was a good deal of womanly  modesty in her; she shrank from thoso  measures, though sometimes, watching  David ride by, she folt as if she could  kill hiin.  One day she spied Susan Means, tbo  Ayres'* hired woman, walking past, and  she called her in. She. was just up from  the potato-field herself; Almira had gone  to the village on an errand.  "Susan," sho called, standing in tbo  door, "como in here a minuto; I want to  see you."  The woman looked woiuieringly a*, a  point a tint or more to the lelt of her  with her crooked eyes; then i.ho came up  'Imp.'walk.  ���������'Come in," said Mrs. King. " I want  to ask you somethin'. I want to ask  you," she went on, outwardly defiant,  when tlio two sat together in the kitchen,  "ef you know what Mis' Ayrcs's David  has been treating my Almiry so fur?"  " I don' know whut you mean, as I  knows on." replied the othor, smiling  strangely at the cupboard-door. She was  a good-humored soul, but the twist in  her eyes gavo her an appearance of un-  canniness and mystery. Mrs. King, di-  l'oct and fierce, tired up in unreasonable  wrath. ,  "I guess you know," said sho; "everybody knows. I'll warrant ynu'vo hecrd  it talked iihnut enough. I wmit to know  what David Ayres has boon fonlin' 'round  Almiry King fur, an' gitin' lier all upset, an' then leavin' her���������that's what I  want to know."  It was perfectly true that Susan had  r known what Mrs. King meant, bnt she  " had been seared, and her little wits had  taught hor to evade the question. She  probably knew much more about thu  state of affairs than either D.ivid or his  mother thought. She often imbibed more  than her mental capacity was considered  equal to. It takes a wise person to gauge  another's mind and find the. true bottom;;. She kept on smiling strangely at  the cupboard-door.  "I've hecrd a little," said slie, "ef you  want to know."  "I do want to know. I'll let'em know  thev can't go foolin' 'round juv girl."  "You'll be mad."  "No, I won't be mad.  Out with it."  "I don't know as it's anythin' Mis'  Ayres has got agin Almiry, ..but she's  kinder sot agin you."  "What's she sot agin mo fur?"  "Wa'al, I guess it's on iiccount of  your wearin' your dresses half-way up to  your knees, and them cow-hide shoes,  and that hat, and hevin' your hair cut  so short. But I guess it's mainly 'causa  you air a Spiritualist."  ���������'I don't, bedieve a word of it."  "Aecordin' to what I've heerd, .It's  s ."  Mrs. King did not know when the  woman went. She stood loaning against  lho wall, dazed, till Almira came in.  "Is it me?" she muttered once; "an' I  willin' to die for her!  O Lord!"  Almira stared at har  when she entered  '    the kitchen. '  "What's the matter, mother?"  "No-h-ii1, deary."  Next Sunday tliere was a greater sensation in the orthodox church than there  had been over Almira in her pink silk.  Tlie girl was not there���������she was hardly  well enough that day���������but her mother  walked up the aisle whon the boll first  began.to toll. People stared, doubtful if  they knew her. She had on a decent long  black dress and a neat bonnet.' Her short  hair had given way to a braided knot.  , She .sat in the pew and listened solemnly  to the sermon, rogardless of the attention she excited. All she - took pains to  notice Was that David Ayres and his  mother were there. She made sure of  that, aud that they wero   looking at lior.  When she got home, Almira was lying  on tho lounge in������Jier room. Sho had been  crying; her eyes Owero red with tears.

Ein- I  ally the poor woman   went   home.    Sho  had gotten   no   satisfaction   at all.    she  had humbled herself, at the  last she bad  stormed, all to no purpose. Now slie was  hopeless. She had a rudsj physical sturdi-  ncss about her that   had   seemed   to extend to her inmost nature.  But it hardly  had.    If it had, it was by   reason   of her  unselfish affections.   A't heart sh>; had always been almost as simple and yielding  as Almira herself.

The cases were argued iu chambers,  Mr. A. M. Johnson representing the  crown, and Mr. J. Elliott appearing  for the defendants.

Just twelve days from the date  of shipment, and still there are people in Kootenay who are mean enough to refer to this enterprising  corporation as a "giant monopoly," selfish, soulless, and carrying nothing for the convenience of  its patrons.  - We have also just to hand a car load of Ogilvie's Hungarian Flour and a large consignment of  Brackman & Kcr's Rolled Oats and Meals, and a car load of Groceries by the Great Northern Railway's fast freight, only six days from Victoria!

THE FERN is a well developed Mine, with enough ore now in sight to supply a 10-stamp mill  for two years.  The value of this ore has been ascertained by milling;and smelting quantities in a practical manner, and  it runs from $10.00 to $300. per ton.  Five tons, taken from an open cut on thc surface and milled at the Poorman mill near Nelson, gave a  return of $6i.oo'per ton in free gold, and showed a value of $50.00 per ton in concentrates, making a total  value of $u 1.00 per ton. " :  "  The tunnel at main level, which i.s in 400 feet on ledge, cut this same rich ore at a,depth of about 160  feet below the surface, and now shows continuous rich ore for one hundred feet, which runs from $32.00 to  over $300.00 per ton. ��������� 0  The Mine is proven to a depth of over 225 feet.  The profit on ore now in sight should be sufficient to pay twice the capital of the,company.  300,000 shares of thc stock have been subscribed for by an underwriting syndicate, which guarantees  all the cash required by the company, and arrangements are now being made to equip the Mine with 11 10.  stamp mill, which it is'hoped will be in running order in August.  Only 100,000 shares will be offered to thc public at par, and a large number of these have already  been applied for.  The Prospectus contains full information, and will be furnished on application to the brokers.  BEOKEES:      ,  GEO. W. HAMILTON   & SON,  24 Sacramento St., Hontreal, P. Q.  F. C.
