The recent discovery was made by  grouud sluicing. Messrs. Swedburgnnd  Johnson, believing thnt the main vein of  the White claim, which adjoins the  Granite on the . north-west, extended  through their property, searched for it  without results until thoy hit upon the  idea of sluciug away the wash that coveri  the face of the mountain. Work was  commenced in what was thought to be  the vicinity of the ledge, and as soon as  bed-rock was reached the magnificent  showing was revealed.  This ore! shoot is believed by those  who. have seea it to be of very considerable dimeusious. The theory is substantiated by the development that has  been doue on tho White, where, at a  point 500 feet distant from the Granite  showing, a tunnel has been run in a rich  ore body on the same lead for about 200  feet.

It is estimated that upwaidsof $42,000  hns been expended on assessment work  in the Nelson miniug district sinco March  1 last.. The mining recorder's office  shows only a few instances where cash  has been paid in lieu of the performance  of (he ueeessary work on mineral claims.  There are fully four hundred prospectors at the present time exploring the  hills in th. vicinity of this city, and discoveries of great promise are being made  daily. The record books show an increase rather than a decrease in tbe number of locations.  No big mining deals have beeD recorded duriug the past week, but the  sales aud bonding of undeveloped or  partially developed properties, are becoming moro frequent ns the season  advances.  The business houses of this city are  experiencing very considerable benefit  from this extraordiiiaiy activity in milling circles. . The value of provi.-in-s and  implements sold to prospectors is an  item alone that Amounts to several  thousands of dollars. The present season  is generally considered the most prosperous in the history of Nelson.

Alderman Teetzel, on behalf of the  city council, has written to the Gutta  Petchii and Rubber Manufacturing  company, of Toronto, for prices of the  iii-ticle.s needed by the fire department  and expects to receive a reply in a few  days.  The present inadequacy of the department i.s considered by the council  as a very serious matter, and, us the  J'lio.vincinl���������government'���������has���������only-  appropriated a fow dollars towards its  m.-iiiitainoiicc, has decided to expend  between ������2,000 mid $3,000 in the purchase of necessary appliances for extinguishing lire. As soon as satisfactory terms can be arranged with the  niiuiufiictiirers, an order will be placed  for one villiage hook and ladder wagon,  MOO feet of standard hose, two standard  nozzles and a Lindgron' chemical  engine. -       .  The only serviceable articles now at  the. disposal of the department are:  250 feet of hofio, three axes, -I'iO feet of  11 buckets, two noz-  At the convening of the assizes  Thursday morning, Mr. Justice.  "Walkem paid a high compliment to  Nelson and its citizens. While instructing the grand jury in regard to  its duties and briefly reviewing the.  bills beiug presented to that body for  consideration, he deplored the fact  that Rossland was burdened by an  unruly element. He remarked substantially in regard to Nelson:  "T take this occasion tc say that this.  is a most orderly place for a mining  town. I have been on the streets two  evenings to notice the conduct of the  people, and take the liberty of congratulating you on your -progress, and  hope your expectations of the future  importance of your city may bo verified. I am pleased to see that you  have adopted the municipality.institution. Home, rule is ' what makes  countries great, and home rule on a  small scale is represented hy the munir  cipalitiess. You have been spoon-fed  by tho government in the past, and  your taxes haveheen taken from you  and spent in Cariboo or the northwest.  You are now at liberty to tax yourselves and to expend the proceeds as  you see lit. It is a good step'in the  healthy progress of Nelson. I believe  it| a proper thing to do to advocate  from the bench the formation of municipalities and home rule, and in doing  it I assure you thore is nothing of a  political nature in it. 1 strongly urged  the people of Kamloops to adopt the  system and they eventually, did so.  The consequences have been that they  have greatly beautified and improved  theii- city, and are enjoying an  advanced prosperity."

One "of .the richest strikes ever known  in the Nelsbn mining division was made  iu the early part, of the week on the  . Granite claim, au Eagle creek property  about six miles from this city and cd-  joiuing the Poorman group on the southeast. The find consists of a five-foot  ledge of free milling gold ore in which  the yellow metal is plainly visible. Tlie  evident exceeding richuess of the rock  has caused the owners to consider an assay of it unnecessary. The property was  located by J. P. Swedburg and J. W.  Johnson ''not very long ago. It was  originally staked by a man named Scaf-  ford who expressed great faith in the  ground. Being without sufficient funds  to develop it, he left the country to find  Knglisli t'omiuiiile*  Advises from London state tliat during  Um past, six months nearly sixty companies have been incorporated aud  registered iu London-for miniug, exploration and smeltingpurposes in British Columbia.  A <;ooil ���������l(.nn-ii|>.  A dispatch from Vancouver states  that the Cariboo hydraulic mine, near  Quesnelle, made a clean-up last week  of $00,000. This is the result of 53  days 1(5 hours piping.  Owing to a washout between Banff and  Conmore on the mnia line of the Canadian Pacific railway, iraflic over that line  was slightly delayed during the earlier  part of the we.k. . The uaninge has beeu  repaired and,trains are now > running on  time.  The Provincial authorities at Victoria have failed to take, any further  notice of the request of the council as  regards the city park, and it is now.  supposed that nothing will be done in  the matter.  Citizens of Ymir are making great  effort to ha\e a post office established  at the new Quartz creek townsite.  The postmaster-general, it is expected,  will grant the request at an early date.  An immense strike of galena and grey-  copper is reported to have.been made on  Fry creek, eight miles from Kaslo.  Mclvor Campbell, of Vancouver, representing the Scottish Colonial Gold  Fields, limited, of Edinbourg, Scotland,  has arranged a deal by which he acquires  the interests of the Cumberland Mining  company, the Slocnn Mining and.Milling  company and the Idaho Mining company. The properties controlled by these  corporation are: The'Alamo, Twin  Lakes, Ivy Leaf.

The purchase price is  said to be $500,000. *  The mines included iu the deal me  situated in the' Twin Lakes basin aud ou  the divide between Slocan lake and  south fork of Carpenter creek. They lire  generally considered as excellent property. The Alamo, Cumberland, and  Idaho ore" particularly valuable claims  and have been extensively developed.  Nearly all the property iucluded in the  group was bonded, with other claims iu  the vicinity, five months ago, to. the  Evans, Coleman Sr. Evans syndicate for  S500,00a The Minei. is reliably iufo'i nied  that the syndicate fully intended  to complete the purchase, but au unfortunate hitch occurring about six weeks  ago caused the representative., of ihe  syndicate to abandou the deal.

NOT   GUILTY. ~  Club restaurant aud ran lo investigate.  He was the first to reach (he dcor and  saw Dwyer lying on the floor and Maun-  sou kicking liim. This lasted nbont a  couple of minutes, l'ropably three or  four kicks were given. Dwyer was bleeding from the right ear wheu witness saw  him and was moaning.  Dr. Walter L. Coltart testified thit he  atlended Dwyer at 1 o'clock Sunday  morning December 13. The injured mau  was ljing in a corner of the bar room  aud appeared to be under the influence  of alcohol. He hnd sfeveral abrasions on  the head, bruised over right eye, cut in  the ear and bruises in the chin, etc. He  complained of pain and witness seut him  to the Sisters hospital. Witness I bought  tlie defendant was suffering from acute  alcohol poisoning and did not see him  again until after death. At a post mortem examination he found that death was  due to internal trouble caused by an  eruption of the spleen. lie would have  to bs very forcibly kicked in the region  of the spleen to cause an eruption If a  slight rupture hnd existed it is possible  that it could be enlarged by subsequent  falls.  Under cross examination the witness  said the rupture to the spleeu was so  great that the man could not move about,  mnch less fight. He admitted that eruptions of the spleen were sometimes  spontaneous and drinking would cause  (bo man to collapse more quickly than  when soIilu-. With such au injury to the  spleen the man could certainly not attempt to eat a meal. When witness saw  deceased at 1 -.HO in the morningjie would  judge lhat any injury to the spleen at.  that time could not possibly have existed  more thau an hour and a half previously.  . Dr. James T. AIcKenssie testified substantially the same as the previous witness, and said that had deceased eateu a  meal of liver and bacon at G o'clock as  asFcrled by counsel and had any injury  of lhe spleen, the process of digestion  would have been delayed aud would have  been incomplete at the time of death.

The case of James Mauuson, charged  with the murder of John Dwyer at' Rossland on December 12 of last year, was  heard by Mr. Justice Walkem on Friday.  The crown was represented  by Deputy-  wn������ '���������"t.'nd.in the stomach. He would  lv.-.^xpect n mari wiih the injury deceased  hnd to walk around, drink or carouse in.  any way. A very slight injury to the  spleen .would indispose a mau and cause  him terrible pain.  Angus J. McDonald was the next witness aud testified that he saw deceased  between S aud i) o'clock at the Belmont  Hotel walking around talkiug to friends.  Later on he found the deceased.lying on  lhe floor and about 1 o'clock witness  asked-him to go iuto another room.  Deceased obeyed the request saying that  he wauted to lie down and sober up. He  laid in the uext room uutil the doctor  came aud removed him. ,,  Under cross examination witness said  that the man was druuk and upon suggestion of witnesses' partner, Dywer  went to a drug store anfl had his ear  bound up. At that time he did not  appear to besuifering auy pain.  The prosecution rested and the court  remarked-'that-the-crown~iiai:Pfailed "to"  make out a case of murder against  accused.' The professional testimony  Lind satisfied him that the deceased had  not died from the.effects of the assault  by ,the prisoner; that the nature of the  assault���������kicking a drunken man while he  was dowu���������was most brutal, bill was not  sulliuisnt to justify a verdict of murder.  The assistaiit-iittoineyrgeneral was not  inclined to dispose of the case summarily  and counsel for the" defense concluded to  present Ins case.  Upon-, reassembling after the noon  hour, Mr.-McNeill said lhat in view.of  the poor case made by the crown and thc  remarks from his lordship, he had concluded to rest hia case and present no  witnesses. Ilis course was lavoiably  commented upon by the court  After the court had argued (lie case to  the jury a verdict of "not guilty" was  rendered  without them leaving the brt'x.

Marpole, gener.il ''superintendent uf lhe Pacific division of the O.P.U ,  arrived in the city last evening accompanied by Mr. Harry Abbott, of 'Vnnooliner. Mr. Marpole was delayed in  Kevelstoke several days, awaiting lhe  arrival of prominent Montieal officials of  the road who are delayed by the washout  in the Rocky mountains.  To a representative of the Minek, Mr.  Marpole said this morning that his com-  psjny will extend the Columbia & Koote  nay railway from its present eastern terminus to the eastern limits of the city w'th  out delay. The contract for the grading  will be let and work will comnieuce in a  fe.w days. This is the first move towards  the construction of the Crow's Nest Pass  raihvay. The details connected with the  buildiug of the line farther eastward will  be finally settled upou the arrival of  General Manager White who is expected  here in a few days.  Mr. Marpole was asked if the C. P. R.  would parallel the tracks of the Nelson  A; Fort Sheppard railway as far,as Five  Mile point, or ob ain running privileges  for that distance! from Mr. Corbin. aud  so save expense. In reply he said that  no arrangements iu tbis respect had yet  been made between the two roads. There  is a possibility, however, that terms miiy  be arranged.  No contract has yet been let for the  construction ' of the railway for the balance of the distance to Lethbridge. As  to the commencement of work at the  eastern end of the road, Mr. Marpole  declared that there would be as little  delay as possible. In reply to a question  he also,said that the survey of the line is  fully completed and everything is ready  for the graders..,  Asked whether the failure of the Federal government to subsidize the Pentic-  tou extension of the Columbia & Western  railway would cause the C. P. R. to  build west of the Columbia, Mr. Marpole  said that his compauy was determined to  reach the .mines near Rossland, and  would do so at the earliest opportunity.  It is probable that the Columbia & Western system will be used for that purpose.  As to building iuto the Bouudary country, his compauy has not arrived at any  -definateconchision. He thu.ks that district needs a railway and that theie  should be no delay iu its c instruction, as  'the,*'development of lhe mines of that section is greatly retarded by lack of proper-transportation-facilities.������������������   Questioned as to the probability of the  Corbki system beiug extended to Grand  Forkp, he said that he believed it was the'  intention of the Spokane Falls & Northern company to do so, although tliere  might, be some delay.  Mr. Marpole is of the opinion that  the appropriation of 810.000 by the  Federal government for the improvement of navigation on the Columbia  river between Arrowhead und Robson  is sufficient, but as the C. I". li. would  have an all-rail system from its main  line to Nelson by -next October, his  company would bo' quite independent  of the wider route at the next .stage of  low water.  The construction- of the Slocan  Valley raihvay is Lo be done as soon as  posssihle in order to givo a fast service to all Slocan point's." As soon as  trains aro running, passengers from  Sandon will be delivered in Nelson iu  six anil One-half hours. This ���������will  bring all the south bound travel from  lho Slocan district to Nelson.  Questioned in detail as to tho future  policy of the C. P. R. in regard Lo Nelson, .Mr. Marpole said that thi__, city  will henceforth receive every - consideration from the company. "Nelson  i.s.to bo ihe'Iieadqiiuilors of" Lhe company's system in Kootenay, and it will  also be a divisional* point so far as  the'-' Nelson-I.olhbridge road i.s con-  corned.  . The company has oot arranged for  the construction of any branch lines  in Kast Kooteuay, and will not, do so  until the main line is completed.  No move will be made to build railways from Slocan City to   Hospberry,  Westminster. He wns brought hereto  be tried for the murder of Samuel L.  Wood, a Nelson blacksmith, on October  2,1896.  Shortly before the escape wns effected,  Woods asked the acting juiler, Robert  Winearls, io be allowed to go to the  lavatory in the jail yard. Winearls was  the only guard within the prison at the  time. He complied with the request,  unbarred the door of Woods' cell and  accompanied Woods to theyard. Returning to the cell with Woods, a few minutes afterwards, he proceeded to unlock  the cell door when, without the slightest  warning, Woods placed tbe muzzle of a  revolver close to Wiuearls' face and or-  dercdlhim to throw up his hands. Winearls could only obey. The prisoner then  look the jailer's revolver, money nml  keys, nud ordered liim iuto the cell.  With the assistance of and accompanied by McDonald, "Woods tlieii  made his escape. As the two men brok'e  jail, they were seen by Government  Agent Goepel, who immediately gave ,  the alarm. The two meu ran rapidly to  the lake shore, and were soon lost to view.

THE   GOVERNMENT PARTY.  As ineffectual as the mandate of  King Canute to tlie waves of the  ocean, is the attempt or' the Victoria  Colonist to arrest the tide of opposition  and'indignation that thunders with  terrible effect against the sides of that,  rotten political, derelict, the Turner-  Rithet-Uunsinuir party. The scholarly  gentleman who presides over the editorial columns of the only,government  organ finds himself in a most pityful  position; he has done his very best but  has to succumb. But the failure to present a strong case on behalf of the  masters of his paper is certainly not  his fault. The party''he has been  called upon to advocate has killed itself by its unholy policy. Tiie people  are disgusted with it, and it  has been condemned by the verdict of the public press aiid electors of  thc Province.  The extreme bitterness ofthe Colon:  ist towards, the Minkk adds, if-anything, to the gratifying success this  journal experiences as a result of its  crusade against the Administration.  The Provincial government represents an order of things that has passed  away. The gentlemen who organized  t.he party now in  power were more or  --less-reputable-in-thoir-walks-of-life,-  but they regarded such public duties  as devolved upon thein as mere adjuncts to their vocations as business  men and private ��������� citizens. At that  time 'ollicial. business of any kind was  transacted at the capital, where all  trade .anil travel centered, and it was  unite feasible for a well-informed resident at Victoria* to have a personal  acquaintance with uyci-y man doing  business in any. part of the Province.  Thc duties of the Kxecutive then were  -similar to those of a municipal council  now, and the amount, of care and labor  bestowed upon them were in the same  ratio.  have, to say the least, in no way hindered him in getting possession of an  empire of public land, and bas enabled  him to manipulate it to vast personal  advantage. It i.s unnecessary to dwell  upon the short-comings ol" Mr. Martin,  chief commissioner of lands and  works, further tban to repeat the  often quoted assertion that his department ol" the government operates automatically. Mr. Vernon, the agent-  general of the Province iu London,  does not even apologize to the people  for lack of attention to his official  duties, although he is fertile in the  llofation of enterprises which will  bring great gain to the promoters if  successful, hut great discredit to the.  Province if failures. Lastly, Lieutenant-Governor Dwedney, bound no  doubt by the example and advise of  his ministers, is found linancially  identified with schemes dependent i'or  their outcome upon Provincial bounty.  The Colonist is particularly irritated  because the Minicr makes reference to  tho "Turnev-Rithct-UiinsiiHiir party.'*  We acknowledge that the phrase  originated in these columns. Previously the party was as nameless as it  is shameless. Mr. Turner's name was  used in tbe first place because he is  the figure head of the Provincial government. The prominence of Mr. It.  P. Rithet in the councils ofthe Cabinet,  especially in matters appertaining to  the bonusing of railway schemes, cannot be denied; it would be difficult  for the Colonist to prove that there is  an individual member of the legislature exercising greater influence over  the government's policy than he  does. This is best proved by the  success that has attended his efforts  to drag the Province into financial responsibilities in connection with the  British Pacific scheme, the outcome of  which is regarded with great apprehension by sober-minded people. Mr.  James Dunsmuir is not a member of  the. legislative assembly personally,  but he is there sixfold by proxy to  further the privileges and favors  which his railways and coal interests  enjoy.    If thc Minkk has used the word  "iniquity" in regard to this combination we desire to be understood as repeating it unless the Colonist can suggest a stronger name. The preponderance in the House and in the Cabinet  of personal and private interests over  public interest we call iniquity, as it is  also a travesty on Canadian ideas of  representation and government. Instances of the operation of this system  are not far to seek. Year after year  the legislature meets to find the government unprepared for the session.  After wearisome delay, the merchant-  minister, or the real estate-minister  rushes into the House with a measure  foi- the especial benefit of the ringsters.  Tf the Opposition, or the Speaker, are  alert and vigilant some of the evil  features may be eleminated, and some  checksand safeguards may be inserted.  Without such supervision it goes upon  the statute .book a glaring anomaly  requiring at a later date new acts for  the interpretation of its ambiguities.  "The Colonist, now the only govern-  ment'organ in the Province, had- better fall into line with the Reform  party of British Columbia.  At the bottom of what-  is generally  considered as Lho deficiencies  and  incompetency of the Turner Administration, is the fact that it is trying Lo run.  the Province now as was the  case  in  crown colony days.    British (Jolumbia  has now a large population; new cities  havo sprung into existence and grown  woiiderfullyi'new districts have been  created: industries have developed to  a   remarkable    extent   and   still   the  members of tbe   Turner   Cabinet, as  their predecessors    did,  shrink  from  the   new   life    and    new conditions,  stolidly refusing to recognize that there  i.s  anything of particular importance  beyond the  city   limits   of   Victoria.  The Kxecutive Council continues to be  composed of' professional  or business  men who give seven-eighths of their  time to their private affairs, regarding  the government of the Province  as a  mere side show to which a perfunctory  ami grudging attention    is   all  that  can   be   afforded.      Mr.-   Turner is a  wholesale importer and salmon dinner  upon a large scale.    Mr.  Eberts is ;i  ^lawyer with a   large   and   no doubt  lucrative practice'.     Mr. Pooley is tbe  confidential agent and legal adviser of  the   Esquimalt <S_  Nanaimo  Railway  company.  a corporation  enriched hy  favors and   immunities  bestowed   by  the government.    Of Colonel Baker it  cannot be said that his business interests were very important at  the time  of his elevation to the Cabinet, but the  opportunities of his   ollicial position  THE   PENTICTON RAIL WA Y.  Encouraged no doubt by the extraordinary successes of other Victoria  charter-mongers with the Provincial  government, a band of irresponsible  speculators hailing from, the Coast,  have invaded thelobbiesof the Ottayva  parliament with the sole intention of  trading upon the prosperity of Kootenay. As the Laurier government is  not in that kind of business, these promoters have met with a very cold reception. Their representations, however,, have been sufficient to cause  much unnecessary delay in the granting of the Columbia Itiver-Penticton  railway charter, and every mine owner  and business man in southern British  Columbia is liable-to suffer in consequence.    '"- - "  If Lhe promoters of the Vancouver.  Victoria and Eastern railway had previously manifested any interest in the  development of.Kootenay there might  be some- reason why their request for  a railway charter from the Columbia  river westerly through the .Boundary  district to tide water should receive  some consideration' from the Federal  government. They have not done so;  on the contrary, they have ever exhibited a particularly noticeable lack  of enterprise and public-spiritedness,  and it is very questionable whether  they would risk tlieir own money in a  railway even supposing they had a bank  account that would enable them to do  so. The only evidence required of their  chai ter-niongering tendencies is the  acknowledgement, of Dr. Milne, the  leader of the gang," that ho had "attempted to obtain .$55,000 from the  Columbia iv .Western Railway company in consideration that limit oppose that corporation.  On the other hand, the Columbia it  Western people have already constructed over fortv miles of the sy.s-ii  government and the general public  have every confidence in Mr. Heinze  and his associates, and entertain no  doubt concerning their good faith and  ability to open up the-rich territory  tributary to the Penticton road. To  commence this undertaking, they only  require the passage of Lho necessary  legislation by the Ottawa parliament  that would confer upon thein the  right to do so.  IL must he clearly apparent even to  the casual observer that a very strong  sentiment prevails throughout Kootenay that the charter should ':<���������  granted fo the Columbia iS: Western  company without further delay.  ntoFi-SSioxai, ������;._i-i������s.  ��������� 11.

The circumstances of Premier  Laurier's visit Lo England will undoubtedly be. productive of good  results. We have known him I'or a  long Lime as an able parliamentarian,  but by his recent public attitude he  has conclusively demonstrated that he  is also a diplomat and a statesman of  high order. In making this, his first  visit Lo the mother country, he has  conducted himself in a. manner that  proves him to be a really great man.  What could be better than the following utterance, made shortly after he  landed at Liverpool ?  "By out- tarilf. we in Canada give  you preference as a free gift. We ask  nothing in return. We do not desire  you to abandon the great principles of  free trade: we desire, rather, to follow  in your free trade lead, trading where  trading is most natural. Protection  must weaken you, and so hurt the  empire, and us as part of it * * * *  There is only one country witli whom  Canada ever could be at war. That  country is the Unitod States, and war  with the United States, is a contingency I refuse to discuss. Such a war  would be not only a folly, but a crime.  That being so, what need has Canada  of great schemes of naval defence?  We are devoted to' British rule and  grateful for it, but wc are satisfied as  we are until the need arises in the  course of our national development  for a change."  ASSAYING.

The resolution empowering the  governor-in-council to impose at any  time an export duty on ores carrying  lead and copper has passed the'house  of commons without amendment.  There is now no reason to fear that  the Le Roi or War Eagle companies  will build, smelters on the southern  side of the international boundary.  The minister of finance has distinctly stated that in taking this power  the government will not. enforce it to  the detriment of mining interests.  IL is safe to say, as a result of the  government's action in this -matter,  two more smelters will be in operation  in Kootenay within twelve months.  Unless there is an unforeseen delay one  of them will be reducing ore within  90 days.  The attempt of Mr. AV. Mclnnes. M.  P., to prevent the -employment of  Chinese and Japanese in the construction of the Nelson-Lethbridge railway  will generally meet with the approval  of the people of British Columbia. It  is a pily that his amendment i-to that  eflect-did-iiot-caiTyr^ ' ���������-������������������  Premier Laurier _is to be knighted.

Salome stood on the tirldgc which spanned the foumliig stream nnd guzed dreamily at the mountains beyond and then at  tlio meadows, t-alome's cows were slowly  tominj; homeward. In the pasture, she  could fog her sister, I'mderika, making thc  hay. The girl was not lazy, only dreamy.  Presently Salome was by her sister's sido.  Then each one took a bundle of luiy and  carried it to their father's outhouse, for  old Dominic was the forester.  Thc girls worked on, when Salome's  bundle of hay was seized and carried for  her. The girl turned surprised, and there  was Morand, the young forester. She  know he had come, for her father had expected him. Dominie was to teach him  forest ways.  "'1 thought Itwas Cousin.Joseph," cried  .Salome, with a smile, and then "Fret'lcrilcu  hiufjhcd. "We were expecting Cousin Joseph. You know he is shut up for weeks  In his factory. Joseph cares less for the  grand forest and its wild beauty than he  docs i'or gardens and their flowers."  "I do not admire his tastes," answered  Morand.  Then homeward went thc two girls, and  the man followed, and as they passed the  window of their littlo house there was the  old motlior, and Salome kissed her. Frud-  crika stood a little in tho background.  .She now turned baek and sought a new  bundle of hay. Thon Morand ran after  Frcderika and took her bundle and carried  lt for her.  Then tho father joined the three young  people.. Now Frcderika, who was thc  practical sister, went into tlie house to  prepare the evening meal.  ���������'Come along, Morand," said the old  forester, "the soup will get cold, and we  must milk the cows before we go in."  Moruud looked in despair. Itc had nev-  ' er milked u cow in his life. "1 have much  to learn," muttered lie, piteously.  "���������Supper is waiting," said i'redcrika.  As they hastened on Suloiue noticed that  Morand had stuck in his buttonhole u  bunch of llowers.    They were crocuses.  "So you like crocuses. M. Moranil:-"  "I thought you did, Mile. Salome," he  said.  So, for a time, Morand lived with thc  forester. The harvest was gathered and  there was a good stock of potatoes. The  winter was coming along, and a cold one,  Init the family were prepared to face it.  Salome's mother required the girl's constant attention.  Joseph came now on every Sunday. He  was overseer of the factory in tlie neighboring little town. .Everybody respected  Joseph. The young man was the support  of hi.%i'amlly. Perhaps his visits to. his  cousins were not as pleasant as before.  "Tho fact was, though no one knew it, he  was in love with Frcderika. Then he felt  twinges of jealousy. L'He was uncertain  whether Morand liked Salome or Frcderika.  "Besides,"   thought  Joseph,   "ho   will  soon get his nomination to be forester alse-  whore.    A few months'patience!    I shall  speak to my uncle; and Frcderika will not  --.Kav_mc_.riav._L_-._-. .___.^ _-___j =���������  Morand watched Frcderika from morning till night, engaged in her household  cares.  "The time will come," ho said softly to  himself.  One night the moon shone in through  the frosty windows. Salome sat at the  foot of the bed, watching her sleeping  mother.  "She looks less pule than yesterday,"  thought Salome. "Perhapsfather is right.  .She will revive in the spring."  Morand nnd Frcderika were laughing  together���������sometimes even her father, too  ���������but..Salome' only sat and watched -her  mother.-  "Take care, my child, take care," the  mother feebly murmured, as thc iistless  hand dropped", and "over, tho- beloved features came a solemn, terrible beauty. Salome" uttered a sharp cry and lost consciousness.  When she 'camo to herself, she was beside tlie kitchen, Moruud alono sitting  near her.  "Thank God, my child, your mother  was not alone when she died!" she heard  her father say.      -  Morand at once found the means of  sending the sad news to Joseph, and Joseph camej at once. , It was a-bitter cold  day when the mother was buried in ihe  village graveyard. Jt was terrible work  making their way through the deep snow.  Jt was Joseph who gave Frcderika his  hand and Moraiid'supportcd Salome.  "Why, why," Salome snid to herself a  thousand times, "did my poor mother.bid  .me 'take care!" " ' '   '  Father Dominic seemed to take now no  interest in passing events. Ilis wife was  dead. ������  Then an unusual thing happened. Dominic wrote, a letter, and Morand went to  thc village to post it. In a week afterward  Morand had a letter, and he read that he  had an appointment as forester in another  part of the country���������or, should he prefer  it, he might remain as Dominic's" assist-  - unt. .   -  Morand hesitated.  The old forester, .who  had guessed tho contents of thc letter, had  " turned aside. .  Salome Watched lxith with evident anxiety. Frcderika, busy preparing dinner,  was the only one who took no heed.  Morand met Salome's inquiring eyes.  "I am appointed forester to a place fairly-  well paid, but a long way from here."  "A long way from here," repeated the  old man. "I begged that favor. I wanted to kotip you here. I am not the man I  once was. * My strength docs not- come  back with the spring. I think the must  have take^i lt away with her, all my courage auil all ray hope."  His daughters tried to comfort him, but  he shook his head without replying. Mo-  ratal precipitately escaped  from the room.  When the young man came back, his  dinner had been laid for him only, But  Frcderika had taken care tliut all should  be quite comfortable for him, even more  so than usual, and she was in the kitchen  alone.    Morand seized her hands.       f'  "if I go to that 1'avolT place, will you ga  with me:-"  "Wherever you like," said she simply.  She had hitherto been too busy to think  of love. Hut when Morand took her in  his arms :i deep joy took possession of pool  Frederik:-..  At this moment the door opened and Salerno entered. Frcderika hastily drew back,  but her hands were still clasped in hei  lover's, und Salome saw it.  "Sister!" said Morand, with a smile.  Amazement, almost stupor, was writ-  fen on the poor girl's white face. All sh<  muttered wns, "Does father know?"  "Xotyct," answered Morand. "I wm  just going to look for him in the forest."  When later the father came home, Fred-  crika simply said to him: "Morand loves  mc.    He wishes mo to be his wife."  "God bless you both," said Dominic.  and then he asked, "Do you stay or go!'"  The father then thought for a moment  and added, "Yes, wc must expect that you  will want a home of your own. That is  right. You know pretty well what- art  tho duties of a forester.' It is hard for mt  to part witli both of you, but it is bctrci  so."  So Morand understood, to his great joy.  that he had won, not only his wife, bul  his independence. Salome and her fathci  went out together. "Thou shiilt be wholly niy own" lie said tenderly. "Thou  shalt replace all whom I have lost."  Salome helped ber sister to arrange hel  wedding dress silently, but energetically.  She seemed to have quaffed vin one draft  her bitter cup, to have cut off her right  hand ami plucked out her right cye. Salome was bent on rooting out of her soul n  love which, however innocent at first, was  innocent no longer. Salome watched and  prayed night and day.  Joseph was at the wedding. When lit  asked for a holiday, it was with so dull u  face that his master inquired, laughingly,  whether lie was off to n marriage or a funeral.  Joseph's secret was tolerably well guessed, but the bridegroom was not- jealous.  The young couple were gone. The forester's cottage had become silent, Once Salome used to sing at her work; now she  worked without singing. It was with dilli-  cully that she remembered little details ol  housekeeping, so easy to Frcderika.  "I am still stout enough to take care of  myself, and 1 want no assistance," said  her father. "It was Morand I wanted, bul  the lad knew better how to shift for himself. "  It was thc brightest day of tlie very dull  week when Joseph paid his usual visit.  He never tailed to-conic early and depart  laic. He entered, taciturn and cold, arranging on his lap the llowers he had gathered in the forest, great handfuls of which  lie often took I wick to his city home. Xcvet  once had he exchanged confidences with  Salome, yet he felt, she understood him.  Whether he spoke or not, her presence was  a rest to him. She. on her side, began to  'And the time long he! ween his visits, and  each lime when Joseph went away she  said to him, "You will be sure to come  again?''  The clouds were low and tlie sky gray  when Joseph, stick in hand, tho next time  took his way to thc forester's cottage.  Streams long frozen camo tumbling down  the rocks or filtering through the ground.  The murmur of wativs was heard on every  side.  Salome stood ut the house door, watching the sudden thaw. Her father was  away. She knew Joseph was coming and  she felt, she knew not why, glad for that.  Then she saw Joseph. She felt like scold  ing him for having loitered so long. He  met her and he laughed. He had been  gathering the lirst spring llowers, but Salome did not laugh. . ^  "You will walk with me, Salome?" he  asked. "We may meet your father." And  now, chatting, the two went toward the  glen.  They reached the stream. Then Joseph  stopped, horrified.. Itwas a roaring tor  rent. Dominic was not there. Thc water  was tearing down the mountain side.   _IAFor_rhe_^lo.ve_oL_God,Ii���������cried-Salome,-  "let us hurry up! Close by here there is a  cottage. A poor woman and her child live  in it.   They will be swept away."  "How brave and strong she is," thought  Joseph. Ho was certain now that he heard  a cry of distress. Yes, there at the window he saw a woman, a child-in her arms,  and the house was shaking. It would topple over in an instant, and the torrent had  to be crossed if tliey were to be saved. A  moment after Dominic was by Joseph's  side. Thc forester at least was safe._ Then  Joseph, in a loud, clear voice, lnade thc  woman come down. She did so and shrieked wheu she saw the raging torrent.  Salome fell on her knees upon thc bank.  Her father stood by her, shouting out advice to thu brave fellow, who was already  lighting with the torrent.-  "Thnt round stonc'is not firm! There  is a hole in the bed of the stream! Hrave  lad! That stupid woman! -She clings tc  him! Shi will hinder his getting ashore!"  But Joseph's feet were firm on shore.  He was able to make a sign to Salome that  he would go straight home.with the woman and child. *     .  "Let us hurry back and sec that there is  a good fire and wine and food." cried Salome. -    -  Meantime Joseph, carrying the child  ..and helping the woman, had succeeded in  getting home first. -He hnd not yet changed his c-iollies, but lie had made up thc  lire, placed the woman in Fathor Dominic's armchair and wrapped thc child in a  rug, where it lay, warming its little feet  in tlie hearth and smiling up at its preserver.  Salome stood an instant to watch thc  pretty siglit, then took the child in her  wins. "Go, Joseph. Get yourself dried  in father's room. You have done enough  for one day.    You will be ill yourself."  "Then will you nurse me?" and he took  her hand.  "Anything you like if you will only go  and change your clothes."  > * 4 * * ��������� "        O ,  Some months after Joseph and Salome  were walking' along the banks of thc  stream. It was Sunday, ami the little  waves seemed singing a Sunday psalm.  ���������"What a lraiisforiiiatiir.'i." said Salome,  "since the day v.hen you saved that poor  woman and her child. How contented she  Is now. ' This stream is not more changed  than her life, poor lam!, thanks to you."  "And our life, too." .-aid Joseph tender  iy-  "Yes," answered Salome, pressing her  husband's arm, "our storms are passed.  Thc stream Hows peacefully on. I understood today that one may yet be happy."  "I understood it a little before you did,  perhaps," said Joseph, smiling.���������Anthony  Hope in Leisure Hour.

MeVeagh & Pon pore, the contractors  who will construct the southern half of  tbe Slocan Valley railway, are fast preparing to commence work on the road.  During the week several carloads of supplies -were landed at the month of Slocan  river where a large camp is to be established. Early next week a large consignment, of horses, scrapers, carts and other  grading paraphnnalia will arrive from  Anaconda, Montana. . Several hundred  men will be employed on the" right-of-  way within the next two weeks.  McLean Bros, have commenced grading  at the Slocan City end of the road.  \e .v Townsites.  The towDsite of Lemon creek bas been  ! surveyed and will shortly be placed on  i the market... It is located at the con-  ! fluence of Lemon and Summit creeks,  about eight miles from the Slocan river  I trail. While tbe townsite covers an area  j of 160 acre?, ouly 50 acres have been  ���������divided iuto lots. The first iudustry to  " be established at Lemon creek i.s a sawmill witb a daily capacity of 15,<J00 feet.  The townsite of Alwyn has been platted  i at the mouth of Ten Mile creek, Slocan  | lake. A large area of rich ffiiDiog  I country is tributary to it.  The  K.   _t S.  Hul I way loiiiimuy   Claims  Ownership to Ibe .Jroinul.  The Knslo & Slocan railway has commenced legal proceedings agaiust M. S.  Davys to prevent bim from obtaining a  certificate of improvements for tbe Bed  Star mineral claim. The property in  question is situated on the shore of Kootenay lake north of Knslo, was located  about 18months ago by Superintendent  Davys of the Hull Mines aud has since  been used as a lime stone quarry by the  Hall Mines, the product being used for  smelting purposes. ,,  The railway company claims tbat the  grouud does not contain mineral within  tbe meaning of the Mineral Act, aud  also maintains that it is situated within  the limits of their land grant. Upon  these conditious tbe case will be beard  by Mr. Justice "Walkem during tbe present term of court in Nelson. Tbe most  interesting feature of the case, from a  public standpoint, will be the rendering  of a decision as to whether lime stone  deposits can be acquired under tbe Miu-  eriil Act.  It is rumored that iu the event of the  railway company failing to win the suit,  other claimants will protest against the  Red Star location. Some months ago  the ground contained within the limits  of Mr. Davys' staking was located by-  other parties under the name of Fair  Play. These people claim to have discovered galena in place, and are preparing to press their claims.  The I'rovliK-lal .lull.  The commencement of work upou tbe  $10,000 jail that was ordered erected iu  Nelson at the last session of the legislative assembly is retarded because tb>-  sketch plans which have beeu prepaied  for some time are pigeon-holed somewhere iu the department of lands aud  works at Victoria. The Provincial'officials  at the capital thus give auother opportunity for an indignant and righteous  protest against their miserable iucom  peteucy.  Sew I'rocess.

THE   CLAYTON   CASE-  .lin-.v llls.-iyrecd nml llie IVomaii ���������ll:irge<l  Mllli I'l'iiciii-'lu^ HV.-is IHscliargcil.  JUtliel Cinytoa,charged with procuriug,  was discharged, by.Mr. Justice Walkem  last Thursday after tha jury had disagreed. His lordship took the occasion  to lecture the defendant aud also the two  yoimg girls, Clitrabel Harvey aud Florence Heali-ice Harvey.  It was the first case returned by the  grand jury. Tlie pelit jury sdcc ed to  try it consisted of Frank ISruce, Jeremiah  l.obillard, W. J. Heiring, Stephen White,  11. Nixon, \V. A. Ironside, (*!. Steed, D.  I..'Taylor, C. Hillyer, \V. M. Leach, F.  Irvine a- d George C. Tnuatall.  The crown was represi-uted byDeputy-  Attoriiey-General Smith, and thc defence  by I.I r. Johu Elliott. The testimony of  Florence Harvey, a pretty girl of 18  years, was to the effect that the defendant approached her and her sister oil  January 20 iu n box iu the Vcudume cafe  iu Uosslnnd, and asked the latter if she  was not from California. Her sister replied that she was not, but said something about having another sister iu L-is  Augeles. The defendant theu asked  where the girls lived aud: witness said  that they lived on ''the hill." The defendant then asked them to visit her at  '���������The Lodge,"a house of .ill-repute,  as the girls we;estraugers in towu and  could make lots of money. Witness  knew the character of the'house a. sc'ou  as she hoard the name mentioned.  Under cress examination by Mr.  Elliott, she admitted that she had beeu  iu houses of ill-repute and tbat the constable at Kossland had told her several  times to mend her conduct while on the  streets. She was in the restaurant drinking cocktails and smoking cigaret.es at  the time the defendant had approached  her. She saw no reason why defendaut  should approach her, but was uot  olfended aud had dismissed the matter  from her mind from that time. She  stated that she was living with her  mother and father in Kossland.  The testimony of the sister, Clarabel,  IG years of age and also very attractive,  was substantially the same as the first  witness. Under ero3S examination she  said that her sister had visited a colored  house of ill-repute. She admitted that  her deportment bad been a little o'fl'color.  The defendaut iu her testimony said  lhat tlie girls had told ber tbat they were"  "sporting" women from Sau Francisco,  and believing them of the same stamp as  herself she had invited them to call upon  her. Their dress and actions had confirmed this belief, aud she had only  invited them to-call for the simple purpose of extending her acquaintance.  When the Jury reported that they  could not agree, the court, with the approval of vdeputy-att.orney-general, concluded to dismiss the casp. He told the  defendaot to shut her doors against such  young girls as the Surveys, aud iu future  to do all she ..could to turn tliem from  such a life. To the young girls he said  that they should go home aud bs dutiful  daugb'~-s = to their parents; to speak respectfully of-'them aud avoid the evil  ways which bad characterized their lives  in the ptst.  ;  NINE MONTHS.

The case, of David Goggin, accused  with aggravated assault for striking Dan  Murphy over_the_hejid with_a_Epkei?,_was_  ���������fuickly disposed of before Justice Walkem yesterday much to the surprise of  the defendant.  Dan P. Murphy, was the firstwitnesf.  He testified - that he was working at the  Le Koi mine " last December and- was  living iu a cabin with Goggin and two  other meu. On December 22, during an  altercation in the cabin, Goggin struck  him witb a poker, knocking him- insensible.     His   forehead'was badly cut.  The defendant was without counsel  and the court.instructed hini to question  the witness. Goggin said that he was  Iberd to tell the truth, and tbe court remarked that the witness was here for that  pnrpose too.  "He's making a very poor start" said  Goggin.  The court was obliged to join in the  laugh tbat followed. -���������  Goggin on the staud told a story ofthe  row which differed greatly from that of  tbe witness and went to show that the  latter was lhe aggressor. In closing his  remarks the defendant said:  "He (Murphy) was looking for the row  and was not satisfied until he got if -  Verdict of guilty was rendered.

' '  Five tons, taken from an open cut on the surface and milled at the Poorman mill near Nelson, o-.-ive a  return of $61.00 per ton in free gold,'and showed a value of S50.00 per ton in concentrates, making a*total  value of $111.00 per ton. ��������� ' &  ..The tunnel at main level, which is 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 $-2.00 to  over $300.00 per ton. ������  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 the 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 thc Minc^with a 10  stamp mill, which it is hoped will be in running- order in August.- "  ������������������:���������������������������'��������� Only 100,000*shares will be offered to the  public at par,  and  a large   number   ol" these  have   already  been applied for.
