THE   POWER   01   THE LICENSING  COMMISSIONEFS DISCUSSED.  General ttoulluc ItiiftlnesM Alfeiulnl to..  A I'riilfMl AiculiiKt tue Loenlioii  of the .lull.  The city council met iu regular session  on Monday night. The first business  introduced was a communication (rom  E. A. Crease in which,he stated that he  had qualified as police magistrate and  was prepared to discharge the duties pertaining to the oflice. He suggested that  a suitable room be procured as a court  room. The communication' was filed  without discussiou, but just before the  board adjourned thc matter-came up  again and the new appointees aud the  power that appointed thein were handled  without gloves.  Mayor Houston stated the act provided  that the police and licensing board should  hold four open meetings each year at  which time salom liceuses were to be  issued. Tbe next slated meeting is to  take place on September 15 and any  liquor liceuses issued before that time  would be illegal. The board had power  to sit and issue o.her licenses such as  booths for fairs, ole, bat liquor licenses  could only issue at open meetings. He  said that if the city council would support him in the matter he would go  ahead and issue licenses to the saloons  and iguore the board. It would result in  a law suit as a test case. Continuing, he  said that the board usurped the principal powers of lhe council and to all  intents ��������� and purposes was the upper  house of the council. It not ouly had  the power to appoint the police, but to  name' the salaries to be paid. These  policemen, under -the sole control of the  board would be the persons to see that  the laws passed by .the-council were  curried out. The council could pass  bylaws but if the board did not see fit lo  . have them enforced, they would be inoperative. -  Alderman Teelzel said that he would  be iu favor of adjourning sine die were it  not "for the 'act that the finances of the  city needed looking after. Bouds were  being -floated for a water and sewerage  system and it was the duty of the coun-  ciinieu to see these matters carried to ii  successful operation. This sentiment  was echoed by all present.  No definite action was taken.  A communication was received asking  for .the construction of a sidewalk0 on  Stanley street from Robson to Houston'  street. A tender from Lapoiut and  Brown, ottering ������20 for thc piivilegeof  taking stone,. from Josephine street for  three months was read and filed.  A petition  from Miss   Douohue  and  Mrs. Anderson, asking for the use of the  'Fi r eTHal t~f oFk in*dergar'ten* purposes," was"  denied. :-  Applications for the position of engineer iu charge of the construction of the  water and sewage systems were received  from A. L. McCulloclv'E. W. Cummings  and Daniel Morris. Referred to the  water committe with instructions to  report Wednesday nighf.  c A committee consisting of the Mayor,  Aldermen Hillyer- and Fletcher was  appoiuted to wait on Hon. G.B. Martin  upon hisanival here, in tegard tothe  recreation grounds and Fire Hall site,  and also to protest against tho location  of the Provincial jail in 'the residential  portion.of the c'.ty.  II," was ordered that the-brush on  Baker bireet bo cleared the full width of  the thoroughfare east of Mil! street ami  then all shacks on it be removed.  The cityv clerk was appointed city  assessor nud instructed to make an  assessment of land aud improvements in  the city. He, will=coinme.jice his work  ou July 13 and conclude it on September  13. His remuneration was fixed at SJ25  per month.    '- ~  -  Bills-to the amount'of _.51_.,75 were  audited and ordered paid. - They include  a balance of about $300 to T. Gray for  lumber; $68.16 to the Lawrence Hardware Co.; $56725 to the B. C. Gazette and  $20 to the persons who found the missing  boy, Darrell McPhee. * "     -  Adjourned uutil Wednesday night.  A  EICH   DISCOVERY.  The  Granite  Claim  Proved to  lie  .IIiU'li  Eticlicr Than Was Supposed.  A second strike has been made on the  Grauite claim on Eagle creek which  promises to be more important tban the  original find. Ou Wednesday while the  owners, Messrs. Swedberg and Johnson,  we're ground sluicing they uncovered the  ledge at a distance of lOi feet from the  * first find. The ore is much richer and  there appears to be four solid feet of de-  'composed quartz that is alive with free  gold. The lead was found at the bottom  of a dump from a tunnel that was being  run to crosscut the ledge.   This flannel,  however, was above the ledge and failed  in its purpose. This last discovery goes  to show that the ledge is continuous  through the White aud Grauite claims.  The latter is an extension of tho White,  one of the famous Poorman group. Ou  the White claim a shaft is down a considerable distance und is still iu the decomposed rock. = The ore shoot is an  immense one and is regarded as the  greatest gold find in the Nelson district.  A. Jensen of this city has a sixty day option for 830,000 ou the Granite and will  go east at once to make sure that the  money for the payment will be forthcoming on the day specified iu the agreement.

McCulloch  Appointed  Engineer to  Superintend the Construction or  Until Systems.  At the meeting of tbe couucil last  Wednesday, night the absentees were  Aleermen Teetzel and Dow. The plans  for the water and sewer systems were  taken up and those submitted by Mr.  McCulloch were approved with but slight  alteration. The following report was  adopted.  THE WAXES WOUKS.  The committee on public works begs  to report as follows on the water works  and sewerage system of the city:  After examining the plans already received, and going over the grounds, your  committee was unanimously in favor of  placibg the reservoir on blocks 23 and 33  on lot 182, group 1. As there is a natural site at this point it will greatly reduce the cost of construction, provided  that, on the proper tests being made, lhe  ground is suitable for a foundation.  This sife is situated oue block to the  south, and about 40 feet higher lhau  sites shown on plans. We would recommend that this site be tested and surveys made for the location of a 1.000,000  gallon reservoir at this point. Oa examining the plans .we lii.d that Mr. Mc-  Culloch's plan very neatly covers the  ground and provides for the supplying  of the area withiu the present means of  the city.  We think his system can be followed,  adopting his (Mr. McCulIoch's) sizes of  pipes, with the addition of two pressure  valves���������oue 8 iuch and on a 6 inch���������and  one relief valve, together with the reservoir 'leferred to, at a cost not exceeding  $26,000, aud providing a most efficient  service at an estimated' cost of $26,000.  e   "    , SEWERAGE.  The quest'oa of sewerage depends on  theamouut of money at the di3posalof the  council. After examining the various plans  and takiug into conbideration theamount  of mouey at the city's disposal we would  recommend the laying of.'lhe -24-iueh  brick sewer, along Ward street from  Silica street to the water ftout and'lhe  laying of 2,850 feet of 8 inch pipe connecting therewith at an estimated cost of  $12 000. -Q  The cost of both water and sewerage  systems suggested, we think would more  than cover tlie work, but iu laying both  systems therein be curtailed to suit the  money at tbe disposal of the council.  .Fj_ank Fletciiek*  Chairman Board of Works.  ��������� The question of selecting an engineer  to supervise the construction of the two  systems came. up next and a ballot gave  AIL. McCulloch three votes: Cummings  one"j and Morris 1. * Mr. McCulloch was  declared elected nnd in view of the fact  that tbe wotk would probably not last  more than four months and would require the closest attention, his compensation was fixed at 8200 per month. -  An informal-1 discussion took place iu  regard to tho systems aud the conclusion  reached was that it would be best for the  present-to discard the idea of a brick  sewer aud lay a twelve or eighteen inch  maiu down Ward creek!' Also to build  a box drain.for storm water. Iu regard  to the preseut' wa.er supply, Mayor  Houston stated that more water was  being used now thau, at auy previous  time and .unless immediato steps were  taken, the supply, would soon bo exhausted. It was ��������� decided';to tap with a  two inch pipe the stream that supplies  Ward creek and convey it to the reservoir  The clerk was instructed to notify Mr.  McCulloch of his appointment and to tell  him to commence work at once on the  new reservoir and flume from Anderson  creek.  "Mayor Houston made an estimate of  the money that- will be at the city's disposal and slated that-- they should not  calculate ou over ������30,000 tor both  systems.  TOAD   MOUNTAIN' DEAL-  The  Hillside anil  California Claims .Sold  to the C, 1'. Exploration Co.  The Hillside and No, 1 claims adjoining the Exchequer mine on Toad  mountain have been sold by "William  Moore, to AV. II. Coibould, manager  of the Canadian" Pacific Exploration  company, limited, and the final transfer is'to take place today. Owing to a  slight complication, the No. 1 was allowed to lapse this week and was re-  staked under the name of the California. The purchase price of the Hill-;  side is $12,000 and the California 310.-  000. The first payment, to be made  today, is $-1,200. Last autumn the two  adjoining claims, the Alaska and  Golden, were purchased by,,Mr. Cor-  bould for S5.000 cash. It is the inten-  tention of the purchaser to at once  put on as large a force as . possible and  to rush' matters generally. -The ore is  a decomposed quartz and shows a  width of 0 feet on tho California. Assays from picked specimens run up  into the thousands but a thorough test  by Mi. Corbould taken from many  parts of thc ledge is said to have given  an average of 8120 iii gold. About  $1,000 worth of work has been done on  thc Hillside and ������2,000 on the California. A tunnel to crosscut the ledge is  in quite a distance on the latter but  has not yet been completed. Mr.  Moore is still owner of an adjoining  claim, the Deadwood, and will pay  considerable attention to its development.' "V*.  MINING.   NEWS?  The Slocan Star uses up a ton of  powder per month.  Work has commenced on the Philadelphia, on Fennell creek.  One hundred and ten men are employed at the Slocan Star.  The recording office at Slocan City  opened for business on Monday.

Further   information   may   be j  obtained at the Mixer oflice. - i  An Answer to the liossland  Miner.  Kootenay Ores���������Kooteuay Smelters.  The  Question    Kent*  Upou  the Source of  thc TreNeiit nnd Future Supply  nt Fuel.  Until last Thursday, the I.ossland  Miner evidently failed to realize that the  Nelson & Lethbridge railway could not  be built in twenty four hours. By the  kindness of President Turner of the Le  Boi Mining company it uow knows that  nearly two years will be consumed ��������� in  constructing the line. On receipt of this,  information it proceeds to use tbe biggest  type obtainable to proclaim the fact that  Eossland is betrayed. It would be interesting to know what ideas the Eossland  Miner entertained ou this subject previous to Senator Turner's declaratiou.  Bid it suppose that, from a general  standpoint, a railway should be constructed by the C. P. li. from the Columbia river to Eossland before the Nelsou &  Lethbridge system is completed? The  Eossland Miner should know that in  railway construction it is customary to  build maiu lioes before branches and  spurs.  . The principal benefit to be derived by  Kooteuay from the construction of the  Nelsou & Lethbridge railway is the East  Kootenay coal supply which, by au  arrangement recently made between the'  Dominion government and the C. P. B.,  will be landed at the Columbia river foi-  nofc more than 84 per ton. The problem  of economical smelting in Kootenny will  then be solved.  Until this -is done, . we must rely ou  other sources for fuel, viz., the Vancouver Island aud western AVashiugton.  colleries.  The Rossland Miner, ever ready to  strike a blow at Canadian institutions  outside of Eossland, and anti-Canadian  aud anti-British in all its sympathies, is  endeavoring to" gracefully, back down to  the desires of the alien share holders of  the Le Roi company, which means  smelting Kootenay ores in the United  States.  The Nelson and Lethbridge railway,  when completed, will supply fuel a3  cheaply as is needed. Therefore, upon its  completion, tliere will be no need to export ore. The Le Roi company desires  to build a smelter at Northport, south of  the international boundary, without delay. The quest-on; .-now, is, would  American railways and American colleries supply fuel at Northport cheaper  tban Canadian {railways aud Cauadiau  .collerie3_would_supply-=-it._a__Coli-mbia-  river points? The Americans cannot  compete in this respect. This is best  instanced by the "fact that the Trail  smelter and the Hall Mines," the only  smelters at present iu operation iu Kootenay, are obtaining their coke from the  Union colleries,' Varicouverlsland. And  the fact must also be remembered that  there is" no import duty on coke.   - -*  Western Washington ..colleries have  repeatedly tried to do- busioes3jn this  district, but as they were uuder-snhl,  they were compelled to retire.  Iu order to shed more light upon this  matter, the Miner has obtained from  Mr. F. W. Peters,'the district .freight  agent of the C. P. It., a statement which  shows what really wassaid in au interview between Vice-president Shaughnessy and Mr. Turner. Fortuuntely Mr.  Peters .is in a position to know what nc-  tually did transpire.    He said:  ''From the reports published in the  Rossland pres.������,-it is evident that there  has been an erroneous interpretation of  the iuterview between our vice-president  and Senator Turner of the Le Eoi mine.  On making an'inquiry I am advised by  Mr. Shaughnessy that what he said to  Mr.Turner was that pur company would  not be able to deliver coal or coke from the  Crow'sNest mines until theyearafteruext.  Senator Turner, was informed -that, in  the event of the Le Roi smelter being  located at Robson, coke would%o sun-  plied from Nanaimo by the C.P.R, at a  very reasonable figure. It was also  explained lo him that tbe C. P. R. bad  no means of controlling the Columbia &  Western railway unless the former built  a parallel line to Rossland. - This they  naturaliy did not desire to do unless it  became actually necessary. It has been  stated by Mr. Heinze that the freight  rate demanded by the Le Itoi company is  unreasonably low. At present our  management have that subject under  discussion with Mr. Heinze aod h"pe to  make au arrangement about the rate  which will remove the necessity for constructing onr own line immediately. Our  management has decided that the Rossland camp shall be in a position to have j  its smelling done in  British Columbia j  cheaper than in any other place in the  world, and while this cannot be accomplished in a day, qur company is moving  steadily with that end in view."  Kootenay ores cun be smelted within  the district to   the  benefit1' rather than  detcriment of the local mining industry.  This journal  trusts that the Dominion  government will not loose., tight' of that  fact.   Means wore  provided at theInst,,.,  session of parliament by which au export  '���������''-  duty on certain ore." may be imposed  if  necessary.   That duty will be absolutely  necessary for the welfare of Kooteuay  and the balance of Canada if n smeUetwv,  built at Ncrthport. ,       ,.       .''.'"'-'���������  LOCAL   NEWS.

THE  WATER SYSTEM.  The plans for the waterworks sys;  tern accepted by the city council  appear to be satisfactory in every respect and are the best that could be  adopted under the circumstances.  The million gallon reservoir that is to  be located at the southeastern corner  of the city will be ample supply for a  long time to come. The engineer has  based his calculations upon a community of 12,000 or 15,000 people, and  although Troutwine, the well known  authority on hydraulic matters, says  that (50 gallons, or 8 cubic feet, per  day to each inhabitant, is usually considered a fair. and ample allowance,  Nelson with a population" several  times its present size may safely reek-  on on nearly double that amount.  Remembering the terrible disasters  ' that-have resulted from the bursting  of dams arid reservoirs, >it might be  considered advisable by some that the  reservoir should" he further removed  from the residential and -business districts. While the adopted plans call  for the constructionof a reservoir in a  comparatively      loose     .gravel-wash   directly-   above    the   city. - thorough  .investigation and particularly careful  estimate proves   thatr' it may be done  "*   with    perfect    safety.     Engineering  .. authorities also consider that a clay  puddle lining is not only the cheapest  but is also sufficiently durable.     No  c danger may be expected if proper care  is' exercised in the puddling and cementing in the vicinity of the outlet  pipe. The Miner has the assurances  of   Mr.   McCulloch,   the   engineer in  .- charge, that this will be done.  As   aii   illustration   of   tlie use and  ���������*. durability, of earthen dams, it may be  interesting to know that three-fourths  of the reservoirs in Canada and the  . United States are so constructed.  The main dam of thc Oakland, California, system is made of gravel,-sand  and clay. It retains live billion gallons of water and is eighty feet high.  In Indiaj where water reservoirs arc  very extensively'used, dams are invariably made of earth. In the presidency  of Madras alone there are 500,000 of  them which have licen iu use for  hundreds of years. ~-   -  The never failing water supply of  Anderson creek is as pure !as any  mountain stream could naturally be.  A STAB IN THE DARK. ,  If a local contemporary desires to  criticise the mayor of Nelson, or indulge in remarks concerning the private life of Mr. John Houston, it had  better do so in a manly manner and  not over the shoulder of the Mixer.  In-resrponse to a direct inquiry, and  in accordance with its plain duty, this  journal, last week, discussed at considerable. length the nn warrantable  and illegal action of the mayoi-jin  ordering certain bar-rooms to suspend  business, and in conclusion remarked  that an official investigation of his  conduct, rather than an endorsement  by the city council, would be much  more to the point. N'o reference was  made to what our contemporary covertly desires to disclose, x-ik:, certain  other actions of Mr. Houston. If Mr.  Houston has done something that is  illegal or unwarrantable, and our con  temporary has the courage to object  to thc same, it should formulate its  charges and present them to the proper authorities. The publication in  question has evidently got some information which it wants to ventilate  and has not the spirit to do so.  The Mi.ver refuses to discuss the  private actions of individuals, but  whenever a public oflieial usurps  power, or fails lo do his duty, he may  expect exposure in these columns.  The people > f Xelson do not tolerate  vile iniuie.iilos. If lhe l.coiioiiiist has  any charges to make let il be fair and  above board, or forever hold its peace.  TffE ALIEN- LABOR LAW.  Canada for Canadians. Great and  good is the Dominion government.  The Alien Labor law passed nt the  last session of the Federal parliament  will be used to protect the working  men of this country. The Act will be  enforced in British Columbia, the  NorLh-AVest Territories and Manitoba  during the construction of the Nelson  & Lethbridge railway.  The Act will be put in operation by  thc minister of justice appointing  agents to adminsler jts regulations.  In addition to tho protection afforded  by the Alien Labor law, it is said that  the Dominion government, has an  understanding with the C. P. R. to  give preference to Canadians in all  cases.  As if all these measures were not  sufficient to ensure the full benefits of  the road going to Canadians, the  minister of customs has issued an  order to all collectors of customs instructing theni to collect full customs  from all parties who may bring into  this country railway construction  appliances. Heretofore this class of  goods was admitted under the clause  whieh made settlers' effects free. Now  this will not apply to persons who may  come from the United States to work  oivrailways.  Our neighbors south oi* the boundary  have only themselves to blame for the  introduction of legislation in this  country that is antagonistic to theni.  Their immigration and tariff* regulations are th6 principal causes for our  present5 attitude.  The Slocan City News says:  "It is said that a wise man can learn  something from fools, but that a fool  cannot learn from anybody. If there  is a single person in British Columbia  who can see the point of one of the  hideous alleged cartoons so frequently  adorning the pages of eastern Canadian dailies, he should be awarded a  leather medal without delay."  By people who are intelligent and  familial- with - tbe politics of  this country, the cartoons and caricatures of .1. AV. Bengoiigh in the Toronto Globe nre generally aeeopted as  work of the highest order. But it is  safe to say that fo those���������the News  for instance���������who do not know the  difference between tho House uf Commons and an Order-iii-Council, the  illustrations are not a millionth part  so painfully stupid as the doggoral  rhyme that occasionally smudges the  the columns of Slocan City's alleged  newspaper.  N. & P. S. SY. 0PIT0EES.,  A-MINING INSPECTOR.-  At the last session of the legislative  assembly an act was passed creating the.  office of inspector of metalliferous mines.  Nothing further has beeu done in the  matter. By the act, authority was given  to the lieutetiant-governor-in-couucil to  appoiut a mau of at least seven years  practical experience iu miuiug, whose  duties shall be the inspection of working  mines wiih a view to protecting the lives  aud health of those employed in and  about them. Every owner, ageut, manager or lessee of any metalliferous mine  in this Province shall admit the inspector to such miue on the exhibition of his  certificate of appointment, for the purpose of 'making the examination and inspection of all hoisting machinery,  engines, boilers;- whims, cages, buckets,  ropes'and cables in use,, the method  of-working and timbering shafts, tunnels,  etc., all exits, how the mine is ventilated  and its geueral sanitary condition.  AVhy does the   government delay   in  making the appointment?  It would be well for owners and mana-  gers*"of_mines-toi"get"a_copy~of"thi"s"act7  as it   also "contains   regulations* which,  unless observed,   will, make them liable  for the payment of heavy fines.  A  DRONE.  Richard J. Vincent, otherwise  known as Louis Morningslar, a 15-year  old youth hailing originally from New  York, arrived in the city during the  past week. His chief claim to fame is  the fact that for the last' three or four  years he has lived luxuriously upon  the bounty of the public in nearly  every civilized country of the workl.  By his stupendous gall only hap he  achieved a liylihood. He ignores the  patient, honest industry by which tho  millions of human beings of0 this  world endeavor to win Iheiv daily  bread. lie has no high ;yin in life.  His career i.s that of a drone���������com7,  pletely selfish. The fact that good-  natured generosity has been extended  lo him has lead him to expect admiration on .all occasions. ilis present  method of existence is far from being  beautiful, yet some individuals view it  with goggled-eyed" wonderment. His  present career so far has been useless  except to prove that the rest of  humanity is less selfish than he is.  The Revelstoke Mail gats oii a neat  remarl-ginent thc "squid-like utterances" of the Vancouver AVorld. Referring recently to the. plan of the  Dominion government for the extension of the Intercolonial railway it  says: "Hon. Mr. Turner styles it a  steal; Hon. Mi: Blair, a business deal.  AVhich it is AVorldl-i No man can  serve two masters,' is a good scriptural  lesson and" one the AVorld would do  well to take to heart, or time will take  a great revenge upon it."  The 207th anniversary of the battle  of the Boync was celebrated bv the  Orangemen'last Monday,���������<but not with  the enthusiasm of former ��������� years.  It is -to bo hoped that the time will  never come in Kootenay when the  Twelfth of July and the Seventeenth  of March will be occasions for'public  celebration and parade. Such incidents at best are only productive of  hitter feeling for which there is now-  110 reason.

Taul Plumb sat in the smoking-room  of tho Hotel I-larx watching a few  leaden-fonted hours drug th<>ir slow length  along. Ho lind nothing to do, was in a  perfectly quiescent state of mind, and  amused himself ns best he could by  watching tho various' facial expressions  of thoso who sauntere.l in nnd then meandered out.  Whero i.s tho Hotel Marx? Well, it. is  one of those amiable edifices which  would bo equally sutlslled with itself in  any quarter of tho globe. The landlord  hud a very benign countenance, which  beamed nt every now comer but developed inexorablo lines when he - objected  ta certain items in his bill. Tho waiters  wero excessively polite, until they received their fees, and thnn helped you  on with your overcoat and gave you a  gentle push into the outer world. Tho  clerk always addressed you by your right  name. He never said "Certainly, Mr.���������,"  and then coughed. That is one reason  why Paul always went to the Marx. His  rather feeble notion that ho was a per-  sonnge rather than a mere person, somebody quite worth remembering, was encouraged, and tho rhythmic waves of  gratification washed tho sands of his  nothingness. To bo regarded ns somebody  in particular, even when you nre conscious that it is an empty compliment,  and that the next comer, though from  the backwoods, will be received with the-  same personal distinction, has a charm  of its own. So Paul always swore hy  the Hotel Marx, and does to this day.  His cigar had outlived its usefulness.  It had served tho purpose of throwing,  him into a brown study, but its magical  power was waning, and ho had just-  hurled it into the fire-place, when, on  lookinsr up, he saw the face of Jack  Nombers. ' |  "In tho name of all the gods at once!" ;  he cried, as I13 gave tho   newcomer   both i  his hands.    "From what  passing   cloud  did you drop, my.boy?" I  Jack and -Paul were of tl:e class of  '86. In mathematics, Paul .led Jack by  head and shoulders, but in Greek they  were ohcok by jowl. It was a glorious  and stimulating rivalry, but Jack could  study two honw a day longer than his  chum, ond the valedictory, therefore, fell  to his lot.  Such a physique  as  Jack's   you don't  often see. He was five feet, eleven inches .  in height, hud the head   of Pericles, was  forty-two inches around che chest, turned  the scales at one   ninety-five, and  could  whip half the gods  on   Olympus   out of "  their sandals.    Paul wasn't a bad   hand 1  with the dumb bells himself, and   as for i  tho   clubs���������well,   tlie  broken-nosed   old |  professor of gymnastics .used   to   flatter  him on the fly, but Jack   could   outrow  arid outrun him two to   ono.    His   back  muscles were the-delight of the medicos,  and his staying power  and   pluck   were  pimply inui'vels.  "Why, I thought you were in " Australia," said Paul.  "Humph! I savpd the sea-sickness and  the passage-money," replied Jack. "Too  far from home, Paul. Couldn't bear tho  idea of mixing with a lot of colonists,'  Incipient brigands, arrested developments  and1, the"Lord knows what. So hero I  mn,, .gummed .on tlie back, and warranted to stick."  "This.is-"luck. Jack. Why, I don't  know how to properly express myself.  Come, sit down, old boy, and let's have  a talk."  "Not hero, Paul." I hate to talk in a  room full of listeners. Sec! That fellow  yonder with a cast in his eyo and a lopsided nose has already pricked up his  oars for a little gossip. Haven't you n  corner somewhere where we can be  nlono?"  "Why, yes, in.the parlor. No, that  won't do. Women are more curious than  men. - Bless 111c, Jack, what's tho matter  with niy room? It's only a six-by-nine  sky-parlor, but it will serve our purpose.  Come along."  Ten-minutes later they were having  tiw_in^m^t_._clii>t_j^ou.r_o_vor_lieard_-_of.-  First, of course, various reminiscences of  college-days . passed in review. - Thoy  wanted to know what had becomo of this  fellow and that in their class, which of  tho professors had died, and whether tho  process of ossification wus still going on,  with its old-time vigor, in the brain ot  tho president.. ��������� Then they came to more  serious matters.** Paul gayly recited tho  story of how many things he hadn't  done, and why-he happened to bo loafing  around the'Hotel Marx on that-auspicious morning.  "And   iiow,    dear    father-confessor,"  Mid Paul at  last, '-'Ivo   told   you  all I  know and   some   things   1   d,on't   know,  about myself.    What  have you   been doing, Jack?    Don't assume ^that sheepish  expression as though -. you   had just heen  collared for  picking   pockets,   but   just  tell the plain, unvarnished truth."  * "I think I shall   surprise   you, Paul."  "Trumped your partner's ace, eh?"  "No, not quite that."  "Been doing something to be ashamed  of?" , . ���������      ���������  ���������  "No, something I'm proud of."  "Well, Jack, then you can.'t surprise  mc, for thnt is just what I should expect you to do."  "Paul, I'm married."  "What!" exclaimed Paul, aud he must  havo opened liis eyes pretty; wide, for  Jack camo at him with:���������    0 ������  "Paul, did you ever see the Hubo Vir-  giniana, alias, tlio great- horned owl?"  "What do you mean?" asked Paul.  -"Nothing,, except that you happen to  look like that specimen of ornithology,  that's all. I promised to " surprise you,  didn't I?" - Paul nodded, "for thc news  rendered him speechless. "Well, I've  done it."  "Great Scottr Married!.- __ou, . Jack  Nombers, confirmed bachelor, woman-  hater, etcetera, etcetera?"  "Yes, Paul. The bachelor nail was  driven iu to its head, but it wasn't  clinched on the under side. Fate yanked  it out with a claw-hammer, and bore I  am."  "Cut wasn't this rather sudden, Jack?"  "Perhaps it was.    Death and marriage  are liable to be sudden, you know." -  "Well, that's very odd. I can't get used  to the idea. I'm sailing on an unknown  sea. Why, the news knocks me on my  beam ends. I'm a total wreck. What  on earth could have made you marry,  ���������Tack?"  "First, a'ghost, Paul, "and second, a  woman."  "Thanks', Jack. " It's awfully good of  you to inflame curiosity in this way.  I'll come, never fear; but perhaps I'll  wait, until the honeymoon is over."  "Better fix an earlier dat<������, my boy.  That moon has been screwed tight at th6  full, and is going to last. There are' no  eclipses and there is no'waxing and waning in my-matrimonii firmament."  '"Ponr-Jaok!"  " Unserve, your comments until  you've  sreuher."  "But the ghost! What connection ��������� is  thsro   between a ghost and your   wife?"  "Ah. yes, Paul. Thank Heaven for  thnt (.'host! 'I had a dream, which was  not all a dream,' says Byron. Well. I  *������.w a ghost, which was not all a ghost.  ,1 must tell you that 'yarn somo time.  ,It's rather long, but I guess it will  amuso you. Think of tho stilly night,  the wee sma' hours, flesh creeping with  horror, eyes rolling in a fine frenzy,  thunder roaring overhead and your humble servant drinking witch's broth and  wrestling with an apparition. Ha, ha,  my fino fellow, it's a story worth telling,  I assure you, and when you havo leisure���������"  "Jack, I haven't anything but leisure,  :and if you don't want mo to suffocate  in the smoke of internal conflagration  you'll begin to pipe your lay at once."  "What! Now?" c  "Of course���������now. Isn't it Emerson  who says that now is all tho timo yon  can reckon on, or words to.'that effect?  Do you suppose I can stand thc strain  an hour longer without being coopered  with iron hoops? Coriie, I'll ring for cigars, and with my feet on tho table, in  thc reposeful attitude of a listener, you  shall spin your yarn.'^  And so it was agreed.  CHAPTER II.  "Well, Paul, lend me your ears, and  let mo commond myself to your -patience. I am glad to tell yout-thc story  of niy love-making, for it ie as pleasant  to rue as a walk through a field of  clover-blossoms. On my honor, I didn't  intend to got married, but if ' Heaven  will insist on tumbling into a fellow's  lap, what is he to do? You will forgive  me when you see my wife.  "By the way, my boy, hand ine that  pouch of Virginia leaf. When a man -is  in my state of mind, the cigar too faintly  expresses his happiness: he must burn  incense to his goddess in thc bowl of a  pipe. o  "Now? then, do you remember that  my sister Imogen had a bud fall during  my seliior yearf' I told you about it at  thc time, but you were plowing up  Greek roots and it made no impression  on you."  "Certainly I do, Jack; sho was hurt  by a runaway horse."  "Yes, and the nervou* shock came  near costing her her life. She is a plucky  girl, though, und for a while pulled  along famously; but about eighteen  months ago, some rather alarming complications set in, and the doctor insisted  that she should go to the sea-shore, away  from the everlasting tumult of fashionable society. What she wanted, ho said,  was some of tlio 'roll on, thou deep and  dark-blue ocean' influence. Thc salt air  might give her an appetite, and as one  cracker served her for threo squaru  'meals, with enough left over for breakfast next morning, . this seemed rather  desirable.  "Of course, the brunt of the business  fell on ine. I had to pack my grip-suck  and start on an exploring expedition. I  answered every advertisement in the papers. You' ought to go through that ex-'  perience and, my word for it, you would  be sober for the rest of-your natural life.  Or* man wrote that his place was all  - that a mother's heart could ' wish, and  thnt the houso commanded the finest  prospect in that section of tho country.  When I got there, I was welcomed by a  cloud of mosquitoes that darkened the  sun, the houso was .1 rickety, tumbledown concern, its clapboards nnd shingles  fairly yawning. On inquiry, I also discovered that tho region was infested by  four kinds of chills and fever, so you  could pay your money ond take - your  choice. The man who trusts to advertisements is pretty sure to fill a premature grave."  "You had hard luck, old fellow," suggested Paul. "Probably you were on the  still-hunt for a corner of paradise.''   .  "No; I ask for nothing but the comforts and conveniences of. life. I'm not  over-particular, but whon the doctor tells  me to get on top of a hill I don't want  to settle in a mud-hole."  _^_'.'_Well)_did_y.ou_persevcre?lJ ���������������������������,   "Yes, and at last, about fifty miles  from here,   struck   just   the   right spot.  lives within a dozen  rods   of   the   gateway, and the widow won't take it.'  "'Theii thero must be something radically wrong about Jhe house?'  "He nodded in'a very ominous way. "  "'Is the drainage bad? Is'the water  brackish? Is it unhealthy?1      . ������  "'No, nothing of thnt sort.';,   "  " 'Won't you kindly explain, then, for  I confess I'm getting dizzy.'  "He shrugged his shoulders, nnd replied in n dreadful niotiosvllnblo:���������  "'Haunted!'  "I never felt so relieved in inv life.  " 'Is tliat all?" I asked. 'Is that truly  and on your honor tho only reason why  nobody will buy tho house?'  " 'Isn't that reason enough?' he asked.  "I broke into a hearty laugh.  "'You arc not afraid of {{hosts?' ho.  queried.  " 'No, why should I lie? I expect to  be one myself, some time.'  "Then ho told   mo   that   Coggs   could  '  give me   further  details,, but   that   tho  widow Grink lived   in the city, and   if I  really wanted to buy, ghost and  all, s'm  would probably mako. satisfactory  terms.  "So t came here post-haste, hunted thu  old lady up and fouud her. I fouud hor  daughter also."  "Your present wife, Jack?"  "Precisely."  "Well, this is a pretty little drama, my  boy. I didn't know such things ever  happened off the stage."  "I didn't, menu to full in love'with  that girl, 'but- it wns my fate, and I  couldn't help it. You see, I hadn't any  Warning of the danger. The first thing \  knew, I was gone. "Then, of course, it  was too late.  "Well, as I was about to say, I found  thc two ladies living in very straitened'eir-  cumstanccs. The old man hnd been a.  visionary sort of crcatim1, who never understood why he couldn't, spend- his dollar and keep it, too. He.begun life with  a snug littlo fortune; and- bought this  beautiful place with "the hrtpo of living  there to a ripe old age and then starting  from it to Heaven. Ho kept spending liU  principal, first on the hou.-e, then nn the  stables, then on this windmill, thnn "on  clearing up the grounds; and when tlie  bank cashier sent him word that his  funds were gone, he cook to his bed and  died. A nice fix for two women to-find  themselves.in! Thc property hnd absorbed  abr.ut twenty thousand dollars, but they  were willing to sell it for te.n. It had'a  bad name, nnd nobndy could stuy them  over night. ��������� Thc bells rang, tho building  shook on its foundations, "and bedlam  was let loose. Onn man only���������that is  Coggs���������was willing tn take it oft' their  hands, but he ottered only three'thousand; and a.s the ghost might got'it into  his bead to clu'ir out nt any "'time, they  refused the offer.  "My visit- to tha old lady wore rather  move frequent thnn was ' required for  strictly business purposes, and I lingered  in tlio city for nearly threu month's, at.  the end of which time.���������"  his deadly   work;"' re-  That is where tho family are now living;  and sho is there, too."  "Ivy and   columbine and   honeysuckle  and ail that sort  of thing, eh?"  "No, but a' right up-and-down, common-sense, old-fashioned place. I was  riding along leisurely, ono day���������hot as  blazes it .was, too���������and was* up to the  chin in disappointment. A point of land  which stretched far out to sea and was  fringed with rocks attracted my attention. Tho whitecaps dashed against tho  shore, and thc cool breeze was very refreshing. - On a knoll, witli the whole  Atlantic in front and a wooded area at  the side, was the quaintest house you  ever saw. 'Somo poet built that,' I s.ild  to mysolf. 'I wonder if ho could hu induced to move out?' I wandered over tho  grounds for half an hour, thinking thar,  perhaps, [ was dreuniiujf. . Thp site was  simply perfect, but tho lawn wns overgrown and a rather mysterious air of  neglect pervaded the place. To my surprise, tho houso was deserted. Not. a lui-  iimn being, not even a dog or a horse,or  a cow was to bo seen. That struck mu  as "so-odd thut ������ ventured upt- on tho veranda and peered through the windows.  Not a sign of life anywhere.  " "Then I. knocked. No answer. I  knocked again, louder than before, and  pretty soon a little, old woman, such as  yoir seo in a nighmare, made her appearance. She looked old enough to be it relict  of some 'butcher :or baker or candlestick-maker' of Pharaoh's time, and her  wrinkles were deeper thnn tbo furrows  made by a subsoil plow. . But she didn't  know anything; could give no information whatever. I asked a thousand questions, but got no answer. She merely  pointed toward the village, and then,  her patience apparently exhausted,  slammed thc door in my face." .  "A pleasant introduction to your new  property, Jack. "^  "Wasn't,it? I didn't know whether to  bo mad or to laugh, so I swullowod. a  dosa of both.  "Well, I found tho real estate agent  after a whilo. and asked him about tho  place; but he was non-committal. 'That  made me feel rather creepy.  " 'Who owns the place?' ������ asked.  " 'The widow Grink,' he answered. '  " 'How much land is there?'  o "'About   one   hundred   and     twenty  acres.'  " 'Is it for sale?'  "'Yes, and has been   for   three vears.'  "'What is the price?'  " 'Anything within reason,' ho answered. 'But- nobody wants to buy it.'  " 'Why, it's thc handsomest site within  a score of miles!'  '"For sure.'  " "'And nobody will make a bid for it?'  " 'Only one man, Stephen  Coggs, who  "Cupid got in  marked Paul. ��������� ,  "'Two souls with but a single thought,  Two hearts that bent ns one,'  and all like that, you know."  "Yes, and you may joke as much as  you please,'my boy, at my expense."  "All right,' Jack. 'I am immensely interested, even if I do quote from 'Ingo-  ni'ir.' Now, then,-what next?"   .  '.  CHAl'TEIt III.  "When I say lingered about -three  months in the city I don't menntoim-  ply that I neglected tho business in hand!  Thc city was my headquarters, nnd - T  made six or eight flying visits to1" tho  village and the old homestead.  "One day Mrs. Grink said, as thougli  ���������she were raking among reminiscences:���������  '"I can't quite understand why that  houso should bo haunted. My husband  Frank"was one of tho best-natured men  in thc world and hadn't-nn enemy cither  in this world or the other ono.' That a  malignant spirit should hang round that  once happy home, where no scandal ever  grew, is beyond my comprehension.  Sometimes I havo a suspicion that it  isn't a ghost; after all.'-'  ."Then I took a sudden resolution. I  -was-nlmost���������startled���������by-J-the-force���������with���������  which it entered my mind. ��������� Like a robber, it seenied to break the dcor down  as it came in.  - "'I have it!' I   cried. ' 'I'm   going to  spend a night in that house.'  "Louise,I"noticed, looked nt mc witli a  startled glance, and, .as nearly ns I could  discover in the. dim li^'Iit, her cheeks  were pale. That was tlie first conscious--^  ness I had that sho regarded mens anything more thnn a casual acquaintance.  '"'Ves,' I said, 'I'll take the morning  train, iind to-morrow night I'll knock  that ghoat out or- ho -shall -knock mo  out'  "Thc indies tried to ��������� dissuade me," but,  clearly, it wns tho manly" thing to do,  und I was bound to do it. In " the first  place, I wanted tho house for my mother  und sister, and, in the second place, the  mystery had a fascination for me.  "Before I started on thiseccontnciiiis-  sion, I managed to get ],oul.Sit alono and  bluntly told her I loved her and wanted  to mako her my wife. .You haven't had  that cxpcrlcnco yet, Paul; or perhaps,  you young rogue, you hnve had it, and  it's locked up in tho safety deposit as a  secret"  -"No,"   answered   Paul;   "tho   net   in  which the fowler, is to catch the bird ha-; -  not yeb been   woven.    When it N, I shall  not bo refused as you were, my boy.','  "How do ypu know 1 was refused:'"  - "By your voice and by   a certain   presentiment I have.",  "You arc right, old fellow. .-I wns re-'  fuscd.'"  "On what   grounds,   pruy? ��������� I  always ,  thought you worth having.    A "girl must  bo mighty particular   to   refuse   a good-  looking fellowjiko   you   with   ten thousand u year." ; v  "Well, she snid plainly that it was all  on account of tho ghost*'  "What, in Heaven's name, had tho  ghost to do with it? That must havo  been a ruse." . , "  ������������������  '" "No, ifc wnsn't^'and  the   ground   sho"  took did her great honor, I think."  ''Humph!"  "Yes. She snid that if thc house was  haunted/'it must be by her father's  spirit. She didn't know any reason why-  he could not rest in thc grave, but if ho  was not, it must be because he had dono \  something which neither her mother nor  sho knew anything nbour.

" 'Goiug to take another look nt thc  tirink e.-tnte?' he asked.  "'Yes,' I answered, 'I thought I  would.'  "'Haven't given it up, then?'  "'Not quite,' I replied, 'and I don't  think I shall yet awhile. I always did  like haunted houses, and I propose .to  spend thc night then.','  "'So, so,' ho snid. 'You aro rather  rash, arn't you? Don't reckon your life  of much account, perhaps?'  "'Well,' I said, 'I like the situation,  und I'm going to have a little talk witli  the ghost and see if I can't arrange matters amicably.'  "With that he wished me a pleasant  time, and I went on.  ���������'��������� "The old woman, that is the relict'of  the Egyptian'mummy, gave mca welcome  that was not entirely cordial. She emitted a series of grunts like un asthmatic  trombone, but made up it very decent  bed in the second-story front I had un  oil-lamp, a couple of novelettes, some  choice cigars and a good deal of curiosity.  The moon managed to j,'ct up light  enough to give everything a ghostly  look, and I sat until eleven, wondering  whether I should live till morning, nnd  if I did, what kind of a story I should  have to tell, and then deliberately undressed."  "'Deliberately, eh?" cried Paul. "You  didn't jump into bed and pull tbe coverlid up over your.face, then?'1  -"No, because, don't you see, I had  letters of introduction to the stranger from  beyonnd the grave, and wanted to deliver them. The sooner the circus began,  the sooner it would bo over. I didn't  drop asleep, however, for a full hour;  ' nerves a little excited, I suppose; but ba-  fore twelve I was in the land of Nod.  "I think it was the shuffling of feet  that roused me. I had un impression that  the room was uncomfortably full of  people, and that they were having high  carnival. When I got my eyes well  opened, I could discover only one rather  undersized goblin, who wus dressed in  black, and had a huge hump on his buck.  For about two'seconds there was goose-  flesh nil over me, and three" or four cold  shivers ci.ased each other up and down  my. spinal column. After that I got my  second wind, and proceeded to business.  The goblin apparently came through the  blunk wall, scuttled over the bare boards  In what seemed to be wooden shoes and  disappeared through the blank wall on  the other side. That rather startled me.  However, I was bound to have a tussle  with him, und nerved myself, for the  task. 'If that wns Mr*. Grink's husband,'  I said to mysolf, 'lie imipt have' been a  queer looking fellow. They never mentioned that he had a hump, and I don't  see how'he could acquire one in the  grave, unless he got up in a hurry and  crawled into tho wrong man's body���������a  neighbor's perhaps.' Fnr fivo minutes I  lay thero. watching, but ready for a  spring. All was deathly still, though;  and I had just concluded that my. fears  had got the better of me,when tho goblin  made another rush. I broke for him, but  he wa* too quick. I really hud my hand  on his shoulder when he disappeared.  - '..'So I wit down on the edge of the bed  to think. ,'He came through the wall,' I  said to myielf, 'and he went through the  wall. Then, of course, he - must be a  ghost However, .I'll have a look aud seo  if he left any cracks behind3 him.' I  lighted a candle, und the moment the  -*fl������me"blazeA~uprthe-confounded est-rac keb"  ��������� greeted my ears you ever heard I was  positively afraid, and there were great  drops of cold perspiration -on , my forehead. Just think of thc situation, my  boy. Midnight,, a few rays of moonshine,  a lonely house and tho Lord knows how  many uncanny creatures prowling about!  It "was exciting, but not wholly agreeable.- How would you have felt under  .. the circumstances?" - lj    -   <���������  "I shouldn't, have gono there at all,"  answered Paul. "It was paying for tho  place a good deal more than , ic was  worth."  '- -��������� -  "Well, candle in hand, I examined the  room. That scoundrel of n ghost didn't  come through thc wall at all! Thc walls  were of a neutral" tint, nnd the doors  were painted a darker shade of tlie same  color. It was the sumo on the other side.  "Oho!' I snid. 'That lets more ihnii  moonlight on the subject. AVhen the fellow  comes again, I'll collar him as sure ns  fate! If he must needs come through a  door he's no better than I nm."'  "But the racket continued.' Every bell  In the house, from roof to cellar, started  ringing, and as they wero nil set to a.different key, the 'Jangling out" of tune'  was enough to split your tympanum. .It  continued at intervals for an hour nnd a  half, but the goblin didn't risk another  trip across the floor.  "I lay   on ���������the   bed   pondering   until  sunrise   and'  then   went   out   to   get- a  - breath of fresh air."  "Plucky boy!" ,  "Perhaps; bub I had a good deal nt  stake, you know,= to make - ine plucky.  What ������ was after was the girl Iwhind tho  ghost. Np ghost, no girl. Under tho  same conditions . you woud-be plucky,  too." .."*"*'  CHAPTER IV.  -"The second'nigh't was a. rattler. Just  after twilight I again passed thc house  of Stephen Coggs. He was evidently  watching for me, and betrayed a degree  of nervousness which roused my suspicions.  " 'Hope you had a pleasant night, last  night,' he said.  " 'Not very,' ������ replied, 'but I got  through with it'  " 'Had enough of it?' he asked.  " 'Not quite,' I answered, 'and I'm  going to try It once more'  " 'Better not, my man,' and his eyes  flashed.  " 'Why shouldn't 1?'  " 'Well, it's not always safe to persevere in such matters. If they were mortals you had to deal with, you might  come out on top; ' but when they are  spirits, you can't tell what will happen.'  " 'All right, Mr. Coggs," I said. 'I'm  lis for it, and propose to   see it through.  I came within nn ace of catching one  goblin last" night, and hope ������'11 havo  another clinn'-o beforo twelve o'clock.'  "'You tnke your own risks,' he said  sullenly, m he turned and entered the  house.  "i somehow felt- in my bones that this  second night, would bo critical. During  the day I stole a few hours' sleep, and  'felt not, i::i'y fresh but expectant I  wanted tlie ghosts to come, "and ns I  hnve n piv:ry fair muscle nnd am reason-,  ably co'il-hj.uled, 1 thought I could give  tiioin as g'ia.l ns they might send.  "The nio-)ii failed mc; that wns unfortunate, for I didn't cure to spend the  timo in pitch darkness. Ono i.s at an  uwful dis:idvaiitin;e, unless ho can see,  Besides thar, a fellow's courage gives  out unless therj is a glimpse of light  somewhere. I lighted a c.ini'tlc, therefore,  und arranged n shndu in front of it,  which threw the rest of tlio room into  shadow, whilo this particular corner hnd  a few rays of light.  "At eleven o'clock the devilish work  began. Every boll clanged us" thougli  pandemonium had beon let loose; but  these sounds were no longer strange, and  ������ paid littlo attention to them. I was a  good deal bothered., though, by a terrific  rumpus in tho hull. It seemed as though  a regiment of soldiers were marching  up and down the stairway. Of course,  my imagination exaggerated matters, so  you will have to take my statements  with a grain of salt; but it was bad  enough even when you reduce it to a  last analysis. I don't think my hair  stood on end, though J. wouldn't like to  swear to thnt effect; but I am willing to  confess thnt .thero were moments when I  found it difficult to control myself. At  one point, the hobgoblin with the wooden sabots shuflled through tho room. I  had been balked ones, aud was bound  that that particular spirit should hnve n  rugged road to travel. So I mn le a dash,  and as luck would have it. tlie candle  shade foil as I roso and gavo ma all the  light I needed. I got thc thing by the  throat, and don't belicvo tho arch-fiend  himself could have got away from inc.  My blood wns up, fairly boiling, nud I  suppose my nervous excitement gave me  added strength.. At any rate, the goblin  twisted and writhed and uttered a lot of  incoherent cries, tho best ho could do,  perhaps, since I hnd my' thumb on hi?  windpipe, or where the windpipe ought  to be in nn ordinary native American  citizen. After a pretty hard struggle, I  got liim on tho floor with my knee on his  chest. Thnt, was a supreme moment,  Paul. He couldn't budgo, nnd- I wns  master (if the situation. But I hnd  reckoned without my host, for I suddenly  heard stealthy footit?ps behind me, und  the next instant received n blow on thc  back of my head, which sent mo sprawling. On looking, I discovered what  seemed to be nn immense figure, a veritable giant, also clothed in blank."  "Great Heavens!" cried Paul. "And  you arc nlivc to tell the. story?"  Ho hi id his cigar down, too" interested  to smoke.  .^'Well, this' giant wars making for me.  My college gymnastics stood mo in good  ste.d, however, nnd I pulled myself together. It, was evident; that this was to  be uo boy's piny, but a mutter of life  and dentil. Thu old adage of our boxing  professor came to me���������to get in the first  blo.w i.s half-way to victory. Before the  giant reached mc, thcrcl'oro, I wns on  liim. I felt ns though I. weighed a ton,  wns all ablaze with excitement and never  gave n thought to tho risks I ran. My  uttuck must have been unexpected, for,  when I threw myself against .iny opponent's body, ho reeled. That wns my opportunity I made a second dash,-nnd as  thc big goblin fell.to thu floor, the little  goblin took to his heels and disappeared.  Talk'about raining blows! It wasn't a  rnin, but a pour. I got one blow on the  left eye, and, ns ho tried to rise, I let fly  '.'mother, which took him uuder thc ear.  I don't believe n sledgc-hnninnncr could  do better work thnn my fists0did. Thc  goblin' grew groggy, was dazed, and for  the first time.uttered a loud cry. But I  , didn't let up. . It occurred to mo at one  moment during tho-struggle that if this  was tho spirit, of. my dear Louise's  father, I wns usinj* the old gentleman  rather roughly; but I was in no mood to bo  trilled with even by him.  ���������'-'-I-t-hink���������it-took-a-full- half-hour- to  pound thnt goblin to tho point of surrender; but ut last, just us I reached for  about eighteen,, inches of brooin-hamTlo  which lay on tiie floor, he cried out:���������  " 'I've had enough!'  "The candle "burned dimly, the moon  had gone behind it thick bank of clouds,  thc rain-drops were pattering against  the window-pane, and, altogether, the  spectacle wasnot particularly-agreeable.  I stood over the. goblin ready to brain  hiin if he made a movement,.when ho  turned his fnco to tho light.nnd I saw���������"  "What?-, Your Diana's father?" cried  Paul.  ,"Not a bit of-it."  '   "Whom, then?'  "Can't you guess?"  "No,-I haven't thc dimmest idea. How  should I? Tell me."  _  "Stephen Coggs."        -        * "  '.No."..  "True!"  "Hut who was tho hump backed goblin, Jack?" "���������    .  "The relict of thc mummy."  .'"And do you mean   that this   isn't   ti  ghost-story, after all?'  "You-must draw your own conclusions,Paul. Tho'factgseeiii plain enough.

A somewhat ludicrous incident toc-  curred at.tho .conucil meeting last week  in which City Euyineer Hodgins carae in  for his share of municipal honors. The  water pluus were being discussed, aud  while lhe talk was iu'progress the city  engineer quietly entered the "hall ** and  took a seat. AldeVraau Hillyer was  .apparently not aware o' his presence and  in speakiog of alleged neglect relating to  the establishment of grades,"said:  "I dou't know what we are paying the  engineer for. It's uo use having one  unless he understands his duty."  Mr. Hodgins .seemed to enjoy the  remark and laughed immoderately.  - At Monday's meeting of the council u  reference v.-as made to the engineer, aud  Mayor Houston said tbat he knew of a  COO foot sidewalk where the engineer's  estimate had been about 1500 feet short.  He also, said that in roughly checking up  the lumber on Baker street bridge there  was a difference in his figures and those  of the engineer.  licenses Granted and Arrangement.* Made  ifor a Police Force.,,  The licensing commission, consisting  .9^..MessrE Houston, Crease and Croasdaile, met at the Fire Hall,last Thursday  afternoon. '   ., i  " Petitions for liquor licenses for every  bar-room in ,i__������-__������ity were granted-iu  every case witji.tbe exception of the  Kootenay, Central and Merchants' saloons.  Protests were made by a number of  Baker street merchants against thegrant-  ing of license's to the Central and Merchants.  No complaint was made against 'the-  Kootenay House, but the license in this  cafie Was withheld for one week :in order  to learn if it would be advisable to then  issue one.  The commission adjourned uutil next  Thursday.  , The. licengym commission resolved itself" In'toTEe' police boarcf with Mayor  Ho.u_|ton. in.the chair. The question of  appointing policemen was brought up.  MtrCfease fbought that' they'sliould first  ,$eterminie.,the-..extent of _the force, and  upon' motion of Mr. Croasdaile it was  concluded to-have it consiBt-of-a-chief  and two patrolmen.      -   -       _ ���������   -  Mr. Croasdaile moved" that' the chief's  compensation be fixed. at.$00-per month  and the patrolmen at $80. per month  each. This motion carried and C. B.  Wolverton was elected as chief.  '���������I move that McKinnon "and "Winearls  be elected as patrolmen," said Mr. Croasdaile. =  "I must object to Mr. Winearls," said  tlie mayor. He then went on to explain  that he did not think Winearls suited for  the position and said that the city council would probably refuse to pay Lis  salary.  "Now look here, Mr. mayor," said Mr.  Croasdaile, "the police board, as far as I  am concerned, will not allow the city-  council to control or intimidate it. The  poliee I*1���������/'.] is here to do its duty and  will do it. So fnr as Winejsrls is concerned, I believe tbat he will make a  thoioug'ily competent and ��������� efficient  cfli.er. tt is pai ticuliuly desirable that  men of integrity should - be on-the' force;  men who would be above temptation  suob as is often thrown in the "way of  policemeu."  "I second Mr. Cioasdaile's motion,"  said Mr. Crease. "  It was carried, Mayor Houston voting  in the negative. , -   '  A question arose as to the power, of the  mayor removing policemen. Mr. Croasdaile stated that the mayor did not have  the power at any time -jo remove policemen. The board was responsible for the  police and the mayor was chairman of  the board. Any and all removals must  be made by the board.  Mr. Crease asked the mayor if anything  had been done or was goiug tb be done  in regard to a room' fo_r holding police  court in.  "How dc I know.   I am not the  council," responded the mayor.  The board adjourned until next Thurt  day afternoon. '    '���������  Perfect Title,  :   - -  Level Townsite.  are now on the Market.  Xo. 397.

Johnson, is considering the advisability of bringing the case  before thc-minis ter of-justice.���������lhe claim  is made that the dying statement of the  murdered man should not lTave been allowed to appear in courtas evidence.' If  the minister of justice recognizes this,  there is not sufficient evidence from  other sources to convict Wood.  Xcv I������ciivcr.

The initial gener-  tition plant will consist of two machines,  having a capacity of 1,000 horse-powers  .each, from which  the current will-pass  through step-up tiansformers, raising it  20=,000 volts, the highest pressure as yet  " used on any electrical  transmission line.  At this high pressure, the energy will be  carried to a sub-station  at Rossland,  a  distance, of thirty miles, where it will be  reduced to a pressure of 2,000 volts for  transmission" to the moters used in connection with the different mining enterprises.   The electric(power will be used  for operating tramways, hoists, pumps,  ventilators, stamp mills, drills," etc., and  will be sold at a" price which,in comparison witb  the present high cost ot power  generated from coal, means a greatly reduced expenditure in this direction by  the   different   miuing companies.
