Mr. Maxwell stated that the meeting  had no political significance but was  called at the suggestion of friends who  desired him and his companions to meet  some of the people of.Nelsou. He said  that some newspapers had made the  statement that he favored party lines but  this was untrue as he was vtry much  onposed to' party .lines. Thc speaker  devoted some time to discussing Mr.  Higgins but said he 'would leave hini  alone and have nothing to do with bim.  "He'thoughHt meau-for-Higginstosuck  all the meat out of the orange and then  leave the worthless rind to his colleagues  while he jumped into the opposition  party in search of fresh fruit..  Mayor Templeton spoke briefly in the  same strain, expressing himself in opposition to party lines, and the meeting  closed. .  At a meeting of the city council last  Monday night tbe absentees were Alder-,  men Dow and Fletcher.  The committee on public works reported that the cost of widening. Ward street  would be about $2,000, and while'-they.  would like to see the work done they,  were of the opinion tbat the condition of  the funds would not justify an outlay ia  ithis direction. .--  In regard to the application tif Thomas  Halliday,   the   contractor   for the  city,  lockup, to make good his loss on the  jail, the board recommended that he be  requested to submit an itemized bill of  extras. -v -    .'p.'   ���������"' "?���������'  ���������   -  Tenders for the 1,700 feet of-18-inch  and 3,000 feet ot 8-inchr sewer' pipe together with the necessary T-'s and Y's  were received from H. J. Evans & Co.-.  and from the British Columbia Pottery  Co.   The total amount of Evans'.bid was  82,904 and the Pottery Co.,   $2,967.70.  The contract was ..awarded to Evans-&  Co.     .. ... ���������,    '   :  : A bid of 82.50 per.ton was received  from Wilson & Harabawfor the distribution oMhe pipe aud joints. In all there  will be about 100 tous. The bid was laid  over until next week.  ��������� A resolution was passed confirming the  action of the mayor in.ordering hydrants,  pressure valves and valve boxes.from  Frank Darling. Mayor Houston stated  that the local price on hydrants bad been  raised from $20 to $48 and that Darling  would supply them for $35.  Thomson's Stationery Co. applied for  permission to make alterations to the  exteut of 15 per cent.' The required permission was refused,' Mayor Houston  statiug that the alteration would practically, consist of a uew building^   -.  .,.,_���������  A communication was received .'from  .Sanitary Inspector Clive Phillips Wolley  in"which..the writer called to the attention of tbeco.iincil various sanitary.-defects and 'nuisances which he recommended should be abated.  A remonstrance from Thorpe & Co. in  relation to the water rates charged was  read. The collector was'instructed = to  collect full rates.

In 1894 the couple  moved to Rossland, where McLeod  opened the Highland hotel, nnd Mrs.  Rideout, who was known to the world as  Mrs. McLeod, assisted him in the business, and they prospered.  It was a cold, bleak night in November, 1896, that McLeod approached the  woman, gave -her one hundred dollars  and told her to go away and to go quietly, as he bad become a member'of the  Knigbts of Pythias and must thereafter  lead a-different and pure life. Mrs.  Rideout quietly assented, going to Trail,  where she baa since lived, earning a living as a domestic.  . -The defence endeavored to cast a  shadow upon .the character and actions  of Mrs. Rideout while she and McLeod  were running the Highland hotel, but  the evidence was indirect and only by  inference. McLeod, when on the stand,  was a very unwilling witness, and gave  his testimony in a manner that indicated  that he would rather shield the woman  than expose even the few indiscreet  actions that he .had allowed his attorney  to.bring out.  An-eloquent plea was made by W. A.-  Macdonald for. the plaintiff, and the instructions of the court to the juiy were  decidedly in favor "of the woman. The  jury remained -ont for two hours, bring-,  ing in a verdict allowing Mrs. Rideout  judgment in thc sum of $3,000.  " :It is rumored that Mrs. Rideout and  Mr. McLeod will settle the matter between themselves, he. keeping the promise he made to .her years ago. They were  seen together- Thursday eveuing and  appeared to be the best of friends. When  tbey.-returned to Rossland yesterday  morning no one would conjecture that  ���������any [difficulty had ever existed between  them:  THE MAXWELL PARTY.

Herbert/Accused-  or   Villaining;  Money Under False Promises.  W. P. Herbert, until recently in tbe  employ of a Trail merchant, was arrested  in this city on Sunday last,.on information received from Officer Devitt, on the  charge of having eutered checks on tho  Hank, of British North Americii while  having no , funds on deposit. It is alleged that Herbert presented a number  of checks to different persons in Trail,  always after banking hours, asking the  accommodation on the fact that the bank  was-closed nnd he could not get the  money tbat day.. When the checks were  presented for payment there were no  funds with whicli tn pay them. After  issuing the checks Herbert left Trail for  Nelson, where he.was traced by the. police. He was taken back to Trail for a  Loariug, by Officer W. J. Devitt. The  penalty for the ciime, if proved against  the accused, is not less tnan three years  imprisonment.

In order to accommodate the grade of  Upon motion of Alderman Hillyer the  Nelson Electric Light Co. was invited to  make a proposition to the council for the  lighting of the city. , ,  Mayer Houston stated that it would be  necessary to send a copy of the sewer  plans tos the provincial board of health  for its approval. He had been given.to  understand that Rossland would be enjoined from using its sewers unless the  plans had beeu previously approved by  the provincial board. He suggested that  F.'C. Gamble be employed to determine  the volume of water flowing in Kootenay  river for the information of tho provincial, board. Action in conformity with  the mayor's suggestions was takeu.  Adjourned until Wednesday at 3 p. ni.  ALLOWED $3,000 DAMAGES-  Main   1*   to -extend  .up   Ward   Street to  Silica.,  The sewer problem was discussed at  some.length by tbe city;council last  Wednesday afternoon and a plan decided  upon. It is proposed.to. have the main  sewer extend.up Ward, street from the  water front to Silica street with laterals  on Baker, Vernon and. Stanley streets.  The city engineer.was instructed to have  tracings made.and-sent to the Provincial  board of health, together with specifications, the approval of the'board being  necessary before'the work .can'.proceed:  It was determined'to let the work of lay-  ing the main sewer.in two sections, one  ���������to extend from1 the waterfront, to Baker  street and the other from Baker street to  Silica stieet.   "      " l -  Au application was received froin the  Hall mines asking that the-city supply  the smelter with water through a six-  inch main from the reservoir.. The company ofleied to pay the cost of laying the  main and aereed to pny a fair yearly rental or .to pay per thousand gallons, for  the water used. It was decided to lay  -the^matte'r-ove'r^uutil-the-sjjstejn-is completed. ���������  A resolution passed allowing Contractor Halliday $386.79 extras on the con:  struction of the jail. The largest part  of his amouut was created by additional  excavation made necessary by a change  in the levels. ��������� -  Plumbing by-law No. 14 was considered  in committee of the whole and passed  upon its third reading. Its provisions  are similar to those now in force in Victoria and Vancouver.  Adjourned until Monday night.  Mr. G. R. Maxwell, M.P., and party,  consisting of himself, Mayor Templeton  nnd Messrs. Davidson and Menzies, all of  Vancouver, were visitors to Nelson Mon-,  day. They have been making a tour of  West Kootenay, and had visited Kaslo,  Nakusp, Sandon, Slocau City and New  Denver. They left on Tuesday morning's  train for Trail aBd Rossland, and will'go  through the Baundary country before  their return.  ��������� A Miner representative accompanied  them on their journey as far as Robson,  and was accorded an interview by the  various members of the narty.  Opening the conversation, Mr. Maxwell  said: "I am strongly, opposed to drawing political party lints in provincial  matters.' and do uot think it wise either,  in the interests of the Province or the  opposition to split up into party factions."  "It is rumored that yon might possibly  retire from the Dominion house and'Vo  info provincial politics. Is tliat true?"  was asked. ''"-._  'I may say that I do not think the  majority of my own'constituents would  be willing tbat I should retire" was the  reply "I have bad letters from friends  from all over ou'.-this subject but have  not made up my mind as yet what to do.  There is uo doubt a leader is sadly  needed. Whoever should be chosen as  leader, of the.-'opposition, whether Mr.  Bostock, Mr. Cotton, Mr. Seniliu or myself, every one will work in harmony  with him."   ' '      '  - "Are you in favor of having a convention of the opposition party?"  "I ara strongly in favor "of having" a  convention arid, would favor having it  either at Kamloops or Revelstoke iri  order that the delegates from the' upper,  couutry. could attend and would like all  opposed to th"e: present'- government-to  meet without regard to politics." .--  - "What do you - think about the platform issued by the leader of the opposition." ���������'-������������������.        ���������   - "������������������������������������  "1 think it is fulLof glittering generalities and is-a beggarly bill of fare for tbe  present time. It seems to me that either,  the present leaders of the* opposition did  uot want to publish a platform or did not  realize the chief features of the wants ot  the country. The platform published by  Mr. Semlin is one of the strongest  reasons why the convention should be  held. - In view ot the fact that it is  rumored that the Turner government will  parliament^-!  coast friends. I thiuk there should be  a convention of the oppositttn party und  that it should not be drawn on Dominion  party lines. I would favor its being  held at Kamloops or Revelstoke. - We, at  tlie coast, have greater population but we  ought to consider the distances and sacrifices which would have to be made by  delegates from the Kootenay district."  "What do you think of the statements  to the effect that Mr. Cotton is going to  join the cabinet?'-! was asked by the  -interviewer. - -  "I do uot - think it likely," replied  Mayor Templeton, "Mr. Cotton could  not be reelected in Vancouver again and  he is under a written promise, which'is  in my possession, that he will not go iuto  coalition with the present government  without the consent of the party."  It is highly probable that somo member of the opposition will assume author- -  ity " and  call   a  convention of all those  opposed -to the present government .to '  meet at Revelstoke at some time in the  immediate   future,   there    to formally  organize a party that will contest the  next election with the party in power. It  can be seen' with half au eye that thc -  oppositionists are numerous, but it is also noticeable that all.their views are not  the same.     Organization,   and   speedy  organization at that is n;i absolute necessity if a fight of respectable-proportions  is to be put up agaiust the present government..

More.than unusual interest was attracted to Mr. Justice Drake's Court on  Thursday, when the breach of promise  suit instituted by Mrs. Sarah Ella Rideout against Malcomb McLeod came up  for trial. The case occupied most of the  day, going to tbe jury at about four  o'clock. -  -' Mrs. Rideout is an attractive widow o'  about twenty-five years of age and at  present resides at Trail. Mr. McLeod is"  tbe proprietor^ of the Highland hotel at  Rossland, and is perhaps thirty-five  years of age. . ' . -     -  When "Mrs. Rideout iarst met McLeod  in 1889, she still had a husband living  in Waterville, Me., whom, for some unknown reason she left, in the early part  of 1889, to come west. " At Seattle they  fir3t met, contracting to be married as  soon as it might become legally and  financially possible.'- Under this arrangement they lived as man and wife, until  November, 189G, when McLeod became  tired of Mrs. Rideout, giving her as a  reason that he desired to'lead abetter  life. During all these years the promises  of marriage were renewed mgmy times,  and Mrs. Rideout was happy in tbe  she would be hon-  Salc or Government lots.  The date of the government sale of lots  has been set for Thursday, October 7 at  2. o'clock p.m. Mr. Chas. A. Waterman  will be the auctioneer and the sale, which  is under the .direction of Hon. G. B.  Martin, chief commissioner of lauds and  works, will take place at the courthouse.  With the exceptiou of block 49, it will  include the remainder of the government  lots in the original townsite of Nelson-  In all there will be about 450 lots to bo  sold. They are scattered iu 35 blocks of  the towu -and Mr. Waterman is now-  engaged in-making maps which.will be  put' up in all prominent places. The  upset prices will be from,8100 up and for  the .benefit of the squatters; the purchasers will be required to pay the  appraised valuo of .the improvements.  The terms of the purchase will be 25 per  cent, cash and the balance within 30 days  from the. date of sale. Upon failure to  make the second payment, the 25 per  cent will be forfeited and the lots again  offered for sale.  British Columbia.    It is also probable   two boilers.  ored by a legal union.   In the meantime  Important Mining Transaction.  It   is   understood =that   Mr.   Hugh  Sutherland.with. whom are associated  strong parties in the cast, has acquired  a considerable interest in a very  valuable property consisting of two groups  on White Grouse   mountain.     Tliere  are fourteen claims and four fractions  I included in thc   transaction   and   the  ! sum paid iu cash is  a  very handsome  , one.   A large amount of developnient  , has aleady been done upon the properties which are tributary to the Crow's  Nest Ifailway antl it is understood the  parties interested will continue to  develop energetically and be working at  full capacity by  the  time, the  road  reaches Kootenay lake.  calf an "eaTljr~sessibn of  would favor the assembling ot the convention as soou as possible in October."  . "What do you think of Mr. Higgins as  a leader of thc opposition."  " He is impossible. I would not advise  the opposition to have anything to do  with him. "He is entitled to suffer witb  the iemaiuder of tbe government on their  retiremeut. Anything we have had to  condemn1 the government for he has had  a part in, and ��������� uo doubt his change of  heart is purely a matter of disappointed  ambition. Still, if he exhibits 'fruits  meet for repentance,' he might in the  future be given an opportunity of proving his sincerity." .  "What do you think about tho export  duty."  '���������I do not kuow the circumstances iu  this district but lookiug nt it from a  purely Canadian point of view it seems  as if the . imposition of a duty might be  necessary. Iu my trip I have met a  number of old friends aud my views have  undergone some change. I thiuk tbe  best thing would be for the freest kind  of intercourse between the United States  and Canada, but r.ben we are denied any  interests iu lands or mines over there, I  tbink "it about time Canada' gave the  States a dose of their own medicine."  Mayor Templeton(, ppoke freely upon  the political situation aud other matters  aud had many kiud words for Nelsou  and tbis district.   He said:  "There ca;������ be uo question of the  future of the country. Nelson particularly istgoinr t-n be the center of a vast  population.-" Visitors from the coast are  struck with the., air of activity and buoyancy pervading, all the towns', notwithstanding the present silver depression.  People who like myself know nothing  about mines, have no idea until visiting  the district personally that there is such  a large amount ot development going on.  Nelson and Kaslo particularly seem to  have a sure future,  said thnt tbe  ' Apology and  Kclractlon.  Almost the first work the new editor of The Miner was called upon ,to  do was to consider the following iotter":  "' ��������� Ne'son, B.C., Sept. 10,1897.

When The Miner started the movement, "Canadian ores for Canadian  smelters," the opposition flushed by us  was located almost entirely in Rossland. The Rossland Miner was the  originator of the movement against  the reform proposed by The Miner,  and its American owners controlled  "the mass meeting that put forth  the petition against the export duty.  But that was a month ago. As there  is no telling what a day may bring  forth, so the month has the "age" on  the day. The Rossland Miner has undergone a fiery baptismal, is now  owned by Canadians, and the man  who as a member of the staff of this"  paper performed the preliminary work  in the crusade for' export duty is today the editor and manager of the  Rossland Miner.  Such is newspaper life in the Far  West. Today a paper is, and tomorrow it is���������different. The Mixer welcomes the new convert to the field of  reform, and is glad to place its name  upon our list of Canada's newspaper  friends. Even in the flrst issue under  its new management the Rossland  Miner has shown fruits meet for repentance, and there can be no doubt  of its complete conversion.  The   newspaper   sensation   of    the  week is the radical change of policy of  the Rossland Daily Miner.    So great  is the change that the cityof Rossland  may   not   recover  from   the   shock.  Started by a Canadian, the Miner in  its infancy passed into the hands of a  citizen of the United States, and its  policy since that time has been remarkably Yankeefied.  At frequent intervals   a   Canadian   spirit has been  evinced by the Miner, but so suddenly  was it throttled that there has never  existed in the minds of its readers any  opinion other than that it was owned  and controlled  and published in the  interests of the citizens of tho state of  Washington.      With   last   Tuesday's  issue came a change of spirit, and the  Miner treated its readers to thc following excellent (if   unpalatable) menu.  May good digestion attend their necessary but undesired feast: ���������  "CANADA FOR CANADIANS.  "As progress is made in the development of Kootenay.-and the mining  industry becomes more and more established on a permanent and satisfactory basis, the sentiment, "Canada for  Canadians," continues to thrive and  expand in a manner most gratifying  to those who have the best interests  of this country at heart. And it is  pleasing to note that underlying this  feeling is the broad, grand British  principle which calls for the up-building of commercial interests with an  ultimate view to a great and lasting  national prosperity.  "Towards our neighbors south of the  forty-ninth parallel, we; of Kootenay  ���������and it may also be said, of western  Canada���������have a warm regard and  proper respect. We appreciate the  part aliens have played in the development of our. vast mineral resources,  and the thought must not be entertained for an instant that they are begrudged the magnificant results that  have attended the praisworthy enterprise ahd preseverance of many of  theni.- It is also pertinent to remark  in this connection, that no fair-minded  man, be he a citizen of the United  States or any other foreign country,  will gainsay that he has enjoyed every  privilege that could possibly be accorded to a resident in what is generally known as a "free country." Further than this the people south of the  international boundary have nothing  to legitimately expect from this country.  ' 'Ignoring a studied system of legisla-  ���������with the various bidders the mayor  was constantly on the alert, and the  result of his watchfulness and Hous-  ton-like stand on the final turn has resulted in saving a considerable sum of  money to the city, and an arrangement  and sale that cannot well be criticised.

Not so wonderful, though,  considering the proximity of another  election day. It is truly remarkable,  the sudden interest evinced by the  various members of the Government,  in Nelson in particular and West  Kootenay in general���������a sort of deathbed repentance, as it were, and one  that is harmless, for it does not deceive.

'  Some two or three weeks ago, Charles  McKinney, a rather pleasant appearing  colored man, for some time a porter at  the Phair Hotel in this city, was arrested  at Kaslo for a crime alleged to hnve been  committed on July 21,1894.  The" accused was arraigned before  Judge Forin on Tuesday. According to  the evidence in tbe case, McKinney became angry at his wife, who is a comely  looking white woman, about thirty years  of age, because she refused to go to New  Denver to open up a laundry business  with him.   A scuffle ensued, in which the  Mining and  Real Estate Agents.  XVTELS03ST      -     6W     -      B.C.  W. A.

GRAHAM, Proprietor.  (584) NELSON, B. C.  tion by the United States that is in a I woman was cut on the wrist.  The Vancouver party of prominent  politicians has visited Nelson, and they  are now on their triumphal march  through the Trail Creek district. Their  number includes Messrs. Maxwell,  Templeton, Menzies and Davidson,  and their battle cry is "On to Boundary." They declare that their mission  Is non-political, and it may be. Considering the attitude of the Vancouver  - member in the Dominion house on the  railroad question, it is extremely probable that the party is but the advance  guard of the Victoria, Vancouver &  Eastern Hailway Co., (proposed) of  Vancouver, of which company Dr.  Milne and J. 0. McLagan are reputed  to be the head. We know of no reason why these gentlemen should not  be in a position to judge as to the motive of their visit at this time, and if  they say it is not of a political nature  our voters must accept the declaration.  Certain it is that their reception would  - be the more cordial in a political way  than in an.industrial one, for it is felt  that to Maxwell's railway policy the  Boundary country owes at least a  year's loss of time in railway connection with the Columbia river.  number of ways antagonistic. to Canada, this country has adopted a system of trade regulations devoid of narrowness, yet best suited to prevailing  conditions. In applying this system  to Kootenay, there ca;n be but one object, viz., a condition that will result  in the greatest good to the greatest  number.  "The low grade ores of the Rossland  camp exist in sufficient quantity to  eventually steadily supply.amelters of  thousands 01 tons daily capacity. And  not only is it desirable that this product, should go to Canadian reduction  worksTButllTis absolutely necessary  for the financial salvation of the mine  owners that these reduction works be  established in as close proximity to  the mines as possible.  "The Miner is an ardent advocate of  a satisfactory freight and treatment  rate for Rossland and, other Kootenay  ores, and is also sufficiently imbued  with the spirit, "Canada for Canadians,"- to maintain that this district  should enjoy the full benefits of a  smelting industry which in. the near  future, we hope, will rank in equal importance to that of mining. From  now on, this journal will devote its  best energies to this end, and looks for  the hearty co-operation of those who  aro identified with thc mines of this  carnp.".  During the progress of the trial, Mrs.  McKinney while on the stand as a witness against ber husband, became very  much confused by the fusilade of questions from Mr. Johnson, the attorney for  tbe defendant, aud vented ber dislike for  him by answering his questions impertinently and occasionally interspersing her  remarks with facial contortions designed  for his especial benefit, and that set the  spectators in the court room in a titter.  While under arrest in Kaslo last August, McKinney became dissatisfied with  his place of confinement, au ice chest in  a butchm; s^p and jivailed_himselt_oten  opportunity to O'joy his liberty. To this  charge he pleaded guilty and sentence  was suspended. Oa tbe charge of cutting  his wife be was given six months in jail.

Mr. Race has accepted  the editorship and management of the  Rossland Miner, and in future will endeavor to maintain a Canadian newspaper in the town of Rossland. As  he is a writer of marked ability, so is  he of indomitable energy and remarkable perseverance in pursuance of any  course he may map out. He will succeed in Rossland, and in his labors he  has the best wishes of The Mixeb and  Ita many readers.  Mr. Joseph Ladue, the founder of  Dawson city, in the Klondyke, is now in  Ottawa receiving title to land that is  o������ greater-monetary vaiue than is the  town site of tbe city of Nelson. Mr.  Ladue is a citizen of the Uuited States,  yet Canada does not hold that accident  of birth as against him. He bas'eamed  the land, and tbe government will present it to him. How marked is the contrast-between tbe property laws of Canada and those of the United States. To  enjoy the possession of a home in tbe  United- States, the Canadian must  secure a mortgage on a Yankee's land,  and-then foreclose it. and take possession  ���������or a relative or a friend must, die atd  will it to him. The men of our sister  country can come to Canada and. carry  away anything that is loose at both ends,  or that can be loosened by the use of  dynamite or steam-driven drills, aud yet  they scarcely consider this^ a "free"  country.

BAKKEE'S LUCK-Continued from last week-  He quickened his pace and as the flagstaff ot the Boomvllle hotel rose beforo  him in the little hollow ho seriously debated whether he had not better go to  the bank flrst, doposlt his shares got a  email advance, ou them to buy a new  necktie or a "boiled shirt," tn which to  preseut himself to Miss Kitty; but remembering that he had partly given his  word to Demorest that he would keep his  shares intact for the present ho abandon-  - ed tbis project, probably from the fact  that his projected confidence with Kitty  was already a violation of Demorest's Injunctions of socrecy, and his conscience  was sufficiently burdened with that  breach of fhlth.  . But when he reached the hotol a  strange trepidation uvercame him. The  dining-room was at its slack water, ho-  twou 11 tho ebb of breakfast and before the  Uow of preparation for the midday meal.  Ho could not havo his interview with  Kitty in that dreary wasto ��������� of reversed  chairs and bare, trestle-like tables, and  she was possibly engaged in her household duties. But Miss Kitty had already  seen him cross the road, and had lounged  into - tho. dining-room with an artfully  simulated air of casually examining it.  At tho unexpected vision of his hope?,  arrayed in the sweotest and freshest of  rosebud sprigged prints, his heart faltered. Theu, partly with the' desperation  of a timid man and partly .through the  working of a half-formed resolution, he  met her bright smile with a simple inquiry for her fathor. Miss Kitty, bit her  pretty lip, smiled slightly, aud preceded  him with groat formality, to the office.  Opening the door, without raising her  lashes to either her father or the visitor,  she said, with a mischievous accent ii g  of the professional manner: "Mr. .Barker, to see you ou business," and trippod  sweetly away.  And this slight incident precipitated  tho crisis. For Barker instantly made  up his mind th*t he must purchase- the  next claim, for his partner.? of this man  Cartar, and that he would bs obliged to  confide to him thc details of his good  fortune, as a proof of his- sincerity  and his ability to pay for it. Ho did so  bluntly. Carter was a shrewd business  man, and tho well-known simplicity of  Barker was a proof of Us truthfulness,  to say nothing of tlio shares that woro  shown to himl His selling price for his  claim had beoii two hundred dollars, hilt  here was a rich customer who, from a  mere foolish sentiment, would be, no  doubt, willin? lo pnymore. Ho hesitated  will a bland but superior smile. "All,  that was my pricj as my last offer, Mr  Barkor," he said, suavely, "but you sjo  things aro going up'sinco then. "  Tho kncncit'iluplicity isapt to fall bo-  foro absoluto . sl.nullcity.' Barker,  thoroughly believing him, and already a  little frightonod at his own presumption  ���������not for the amount of tho money involved���������but from tho possibility of liis  partners refusing his gift utterly, quickly took advantage  of this locus peniteil-  GIVE HE TODR NOTE AT 30 DAYS.  tiao. "No mattor, then," ho said, hurriedly, "perhaps'I had better consult my  partners first; in fict,'' he addod, with  'ii-gratiiitous truthfulness aU-hisown.-^I  hardly know whether they will take it  of me, so I think I'll wait."  Carter was staggered. This would  eloarly not do. He recovered himself  with nn insinuating smile. "You pulled  me up too short," Mr. Barkor. I'm a  busiuess man, hut, blast It all! what's  that among friends'? If you reckoned , I  givo my word at two hundred���������why,-I'm  there! .Hay no more about it���������tho claim's  your3. I'll make you out a bill of salo  at once. But," hesitated Barker, "you  seo I haven't got thc monoy.yet,   and���������"  "Money?". echoed Carter, bluntly,  "what's that among fronds? Gimme your  note at thirty clays���������that's good enough  forme. An' wo'U settlo tho hull thing  now���������nothing like finishing a job while  you're 'bout it." . And beforo the bewil-  doied and doubtful visitor could protest,  ho had filled up a promissory noto for  Barker's signature, and himself signodra  bill of sale Tor the claim. "Would you  like to tako your partners by surpriso  about this yor littlo gift of yours?", ha  added smilingly. "Woll, my messenger  Is startingffor .tho Gulch in fivo minutes;  he's going by your cabin, and ho can just  drop this bill o' sale, as a kind o' sottled  -lac, on iem aforo thoy can say anything,  see?. There's nothing liko actin' on tlio  spot in these sort of things. And don't  you hurry 'bout them, cither.'- You see,  you sorter owo us a friendly call���������bavin'  always drop pod inter tho hotol only as a  customer���������so ye'll stop here ovor luncheon, and I reckon, as tho old woman is  busy, why Kitty wilT try to mako tho  time pass till then by playiu' for you on  her new plannor." -      ���������  Deightod, yet. bowllderod by tho unexpected invitation and opportunity, Barker mechanically signed tho promissory  note, and as mechanically addressed tha  euvelopo of the bill of sale to Demorost,  which Carter gavo to the messenger.  Then ho followed his host across tho hall  to thc apartment known as "Miss Kit  ty's parlor." Ho had often heard of it. as  a sanctum impervious to tho ordinary  guest. Whatever ..functions tho young  girl assumed at tho hotel and among liar  father's boarders, it was vaguely understood that sho dropp -d them on crossing  that sacred'threshold, and Iwcame "'jriiss  Carter." The county judge had been entertained there and the wifo of the bank  manager. Barker's admission there was  consequently an unprecedented honor.  Ho cast" his eyes timidly around tho  room, redolent and suggestive in various charming little ways of tho young  girl's presence. Thero was tho cottage  piano, which., had been brought up in  sections on the backs of mules from tlie  foot of the monfcain; thore was a crayon  1 cad of Minerva, dono by the fair occupant- at the age of twelve; there was a  prnfila of herself dono by a travelling  artist; there were pretty little china  ornaments aDd many flowers, - notably a  faded   but still scanted woodland   shrub  which Barker -had presented -her two  weeks ago, and over which Miss Kitty  had discreetly thrown hor whito handkerchief as he entered. A wave of hope  passed over him alt-the ac-, but lt was  quickly spent as Mr. Carter's roughly-  playful voice introduced him.  "Ye kin give iir. Barkor a tune or  two to pass timo aforo lunch, Kitty. You  kin let him seo what you're doing In  that Une. But you'll have to sit up now  ���������for this young man's como inter somo  property, and will be sasheying round In  'Frisco afore long ��������� with a bilod shirt  and a stovoplpo and bogivin' tho go by  to Boomvillo. Weil! you young folks  will excuso me for awhile, ������s I reckon  I'll just toddle ovor and get tho recorder  to put that bill o' sale on ' record.  Nothin' liko squarin' things to onct, Mr.  Barker."  As. he slipped away. Barker felt hia  heart sink. Carter had not only bluntly  forestalled him with tho news and taken  away his excuse for a confidential Interview, but had put an ostentatious construction on his visit. What could she  think  of him .now?   Ho   stood  shamed  THE   YOUXG   MAN'   HAD   COME    INTO   SOME  PKOPEBTY.  and embarrassed beforo her.  But Miss Kitty, far from noticing his  einbarrasmcnt In a sudden concern regarding tho "horrid" untidiness of the  room which had-made her cheeks quite  pink in ono spot and obliged her to take  and set down in exactly the same, place  Rcvoral articles, was exceedingly delighted. In fact she did not remember ever  having boon so pleased before in her life.  Theso things wero always so unexpected.  Just like tho weather, for -instance. It  was quite cool last night���������and: now !it  was just stilling. And so dusty! Had  Mr. Barker noticed the heat coming  from the gulch���������or, perhaps, being a rich  man, he���������with a dazzling smile���������was  above walking now.? It was so kind of  liim to come here ilrst. and tell her  father.  "I really wanted to tell only���������you���������  MIrs Carter," stammered Barker. "You  see"���������ho hesitated. But Miss Kitty saw  perfectly. Ho wanted to tell hor, and.  seeing her, he asked for her father! Not  that it made tho slightest difference to  her, for hor father would havo been sure  to havo told her. It was. also kind of'her  father to invito him to luncheon. Otherwise sho might not havo seen liim before  he loft Boomvillo. .'.  But this was more than Barker could  stand. With tho same desperate directness nnd simplicity with which he had  approached hor fathor be now blurted  out his whole heart to ber. Ho told her  how he had loved her hopelossly from  the first time that they had spoken together at tho church picnic���������did sho re-  i������ombor it? How ho had sat and worshipped hor���������"and nothing ��������� else ��������� at  church! How lior voice in iho church  choir had sounded liko an angel's; how  his poverty and his uncertain future had  kept him from.seeing hor aftor, lest ho  should be tempted to betray his hopeless passion. How, as soon as he realized that he had a position���������that his love  for her need not mako hor ridiculous to  worldly eyes���������ho camo to toll lior all.  Ho did not even dare to hope. But she  would hoar hini, at least���������would sho not?  Indeed, tliere was no getting away  from his boyish, simple, outspoken dec-  lara ion. In vain Kitty siniled, frowned, glanced at her pink cheeks iu the  glass and stopped to look out of the win  0���������--  .  .rK   ��������� ���������.,.. w..M v.,.  ..nj  w, m-  "flow; the"room was filled with his love-  it was  encompassing  her,   and,   despite  "his shy attitude,- seemed to be almost  embracing her. But she managed at last  to turn upon him a face t>>at was now as  whito and grave as his own was oager  and glowing.  CHAPTER II.  "Sit down," she said, gently."  He did so,obediently, but wondcringly.,  Sho then bpenod the piano and took ai  seat upon the music stool beforo it,  placed some loose sheets'of music in thu  rack and ran her^ngors lightly over the  keys. Thus-intrenched, sho lot hor  hands fall idly. In hor lap, and for tlio  first timo raised her eyes to his.   -  "Now, listen to mo; bo good'and don't  Interrupt! There!���������not so near; you can  hear what I have to say well onough  iwhero you arc    That will do."  Barker had halted with tho chair ho  was dragging towards her, and sat down.  "Now," said Miss Kitty, withdrawing  her eyos and looking straight beforo her,  "I belluvo everything you say; perhaps I  oughtn't to���������or, at least, say lc���������but I  do. There! But becauso I do believe  you���������It scorns to mo all wrong! .For the  very roason that you give for not having  spoken to mo bofore, if you really folt as  you say you did, are tho same" r:asons  why you should not"speak to 1:10 now.  You seo, all this time you lob - nobody  but'yourself know how you felt towards  me. . In everybody's eyes you and your  partners havo,been only tho threo stuck,  lip, exclusive, college-bred men who'  mined a poor claim in tho gulch, and  occasionally came hero to this hotel as  customers." In everybody's eyes I havo  beon only tho rich hotel keeper's popular  daughter, who sometimes waited upon  you���������but nothing more. But,' at least,  we woro thon protty much" alike, and as  good as each other. - And now, as soon  as you have become suddenly rich, and,  of course, tho superior, you rush down  here to ask me to acknowledge it by accepting you!"  "You know I never meant that, Miss  Kitty, "burst out Barker, vehemently,  but his protest was drowned In a. rapid  roulade from the young lady's fingers ou  the keys.   Ho sank back in his chair.  "Of course, you nover meant lt," she  said, with an odulaugb, "but everybody  will tako lt that way, and you cannot go  round to everybody in Boomville aud  make the pretty declaration you have  just mado to me. Everybody will say I  accepted you for your money; everybody  will say it" was a put-up job of my  father's. Evoyrbody will say tbat you  threw yourself away on me. And I don't  know but what they would bo right Sit  down, please! or I shall iilay again."  "You see," sho went on, without looking at him, "just now you like to remember  that  you fell in love with ni������  flrst .as.a .protty waiter girl, but If-1 ba-  cainoyourwifo it's just what you would  like to forger. A nd I shouldn't. Fori  should.always like to think of the ��������� lime  when you jcame.liere,whenever you could  alford It, .and: somctlinos ,. whon yon  couldn't, .just ,to see mo. and li'iw we  used0to mako - excuses to speak with  each,othor over the dishes. You don't  know what theso things mean to - a  woman -who���������'' She hesitated a moment,  nnd then added,.abruptly: " But what  does that matter ! you would uot caro to  -bo reminded of lt. So." she said, rising  up with a grave smilo and grasping hor  hands tightly behind her, "it's a good  deal better.that you should begin to forget It now. Boa good boy, and take my  advice: Go to San Francisco. You will  meet some girl there In a way you will  not afterwards regret. Vou are young  and your /riches���������to say , nothing, " she  added in a faltering voice somewhat incoherent with tho mischievous smile that  playod upon her lips, "of your kind.and  simple-heart���������will secure that which the  world would call unselfish affection from  ono more equal to you, but would always  believe was only bought If it came from  me."      ''   ��������� v  . "I suppose you are right," ho said,  simply.  She glancod * quickly at hiin and her  eyebrows straightened. He had. risen;  his faco white and his blue oyes widely  opeued. "1 supposo you aro-right," hu  went on,- "becauso you are saying to me  whut my partners said to me this morning, when I offered to share my -wealth  with them���������God knows as .honestly���������as I  offered to share my heart with you. I  supposo that you aro both right; that  thero must bo somo curse of pride or  selfishness upon the money that 1 have  ���������got���������but I have not felt it yet���������and the  fault does not lie with me."  She gavo her shoulders a slight shrug  :and turned impatiently towards the  window. 'When she turned back again  ho was gone. The room around her was  .empty���������thi3. room .which a moment before had seemed to be pulsating with.his  boy ish. passion���������was empty. She bit hor  lips, roso, and ran again eagerly to tho  window. Sho uaw his straw hat and'  brown curls ������s ho crossed the road. Sho  drow i-her handkerchief sharply away  from the withered shrub over, which slie  had. thrown it and cast the onco treasured remains iu the hearth. Then���������possibly  because she had it reody in hor hand���������she  clapped, the handkerchief to hur oyes,  and, sinking upon tho chair he had risen  from, put her elbows on .its back and  buried her face in hor hands.  It is tho characteristic and, perhaps,  cruelty, .of a simple nature to .make no  allowauco for complex - motives or to-  even understand thom.' So it-seemed to  .Barker that his simplicity had teen , met  with equal directness. It was the possession of this wealth that had in somo  way hopelessly changed his relations  with.the world. He did not lovo Miss  Kitty any the loss; ho did not even think  she had wronged him; thoy, his partners  and,bis sweetheart, were cleverer than  he; there must be some occult quality in  this wealth that he would understand  when he possossed it,, and .perhaps it  might make him ashamed of his generosity���������not in the way they had said���������but in  his tempting thom so audaciously to assume a wrong position. It behooved him  to take possession of it at once and so  tako also upon himself the knowlodge,  the trials and responsibilities it would  Incur. His chocks flushed again'as ho  thought ho had tried to tempt an Innocent girl with lt, and ho was keenly hurt  that he had not spen in Kitty's eyes tho  tenderness that had softened his partners'  refusal. Ho resolved to wait no longer,  but sell his dreadful stock at once. IIo  walked directly to the bank.  ' The manager, a shrewd but kindly  -man, to .whom Barker- was known already, received him graciously in recognition of bis well-known simple honesty,  and respectfully, as a representative of  the equally :well-known poor ' but  "superior" partnership of tho gulch.  Ho listened - with marked attention to  Barker's hcsitating-biit brief story, only  remarking atits closa:  "You   mean,    of course,   the  'Second  Extension when you sny 'First?'

Would anybody bellevo him that  it was only a stupid blunder of his own?  Yes l his partners might believe him, but  .���������horrible thought���������he had already implicated them in,his fraud!

He turned back to the hotel and entered the ofBco. But Mr. Carter had not  yet returned. What was to be done? He  could not wait thoro; thero was no timo  to be lost;'there was only one other person who knew his expectations and to  whom ho could confide his failure���������It waa  Kitty! It was to taste tho dregs of hia  humiliation* but it must be' dono! Ho  ran up the staircase and knocked timidly  at tbe sitting-room - door. Thore was a  momontary pauso and a weak voice said:  "Came in." Barker opened the door;  saw tho vision of a pair'of-tciarful eyes  that suddonly changed'to stony lndiffcv-  enco, nnd a graceful but stiffening  figure.    But ho  was past all insult now.  "I would not intrude," ho - said,  simply, "but -1 came only to seo ��������� your'  father. T havo mado an awful blunder  ���������moro thdif a blunder, I think���������a fHui?..  Believing that 1 was rich, I purchased  your father's claim for my partners and  gave him niy promissory note. ' I camo  here to give him back his claim���������for that  note can never-be paid !

" He brought thom out  aud laid them on the desk before the  manager. -- ' .  Tho words "First Extension", were  plainly visible. Tue manager glanced  curiously at Barker and his brow "darkened.  "Did'anybody put this up on you," he  saldj sternly; "did your partners send  you hero with thUsiuff?"  "No! No!'-! said Barker, eagerly. "No  one! It's all my mistake I see it now,  I trusted to tho newspaper."  ��������� "And you mean to say you never examined the stock'nor the quotations,.nor  followed it in any way, siuco you iind  it?"  "Never," snid Barker,-"never thought  about it nt all, till I saw thc newspaper.  So it is not worth anything?" And to  the infinite surprise oi thc masngor then  was a slight smile on tis boyish face.  "I am afraid it is not worth the paper  it is written on," said tho manager,-  gently. '      ' -    ���������  The smile' on Barker's faco incrensod  to a little laugh which his wondering  companion could uot help joining.  "Thank you," said Barker, suddenly,  and rushed away.  "lie beats every thing!" said tlio manager, gazing after him. "D���������d if ho  didn't seem even pleased!"  He was pleased !

Thoro1 was no  doubting the truth of that, voice���������that'  manner.- Tho scorn lied from Mixs Kitty's  eyes, gave place to u stare, and then suddenly changed to two bubbling blue .  wells ,of laughter. She went to-tho  window, and laughed. She sat down at  tho piano aud laughed. Sho caught up  her handkorchlof jand," hiding -half her  rosy faco iu it, laughed. She finally collapsed Into an easy chair and, burying,  her brown head in its cushions, laughed  long and confidentially until she brought  up suddonly. against a 60b, ana thon wus  still.  Barker was dreadfully alarmed. Ho  "bud heard of hysterics before^ Ho felt ho"  ought to do something. He moved cowards her timidly and gently drew away  her handkerchief. Alas! the, bluo wells  were running over now. Ho took her cold  hands in his;" ho knelt bo si do her and  passed his arm around her waist.- JIo  drew hor head upen ,hls shoulder. Ho  "was*" not suro that any of theso things  woro effective until sho suddenly lifted  her eyes to his with tho last ray of mirth  in them vanishing in a big. tear drop,  put her arms around his neck and sobbed:  "O Georgo!     You blessed   innoccntl"  An eloquent silence was broken by a  remorseful start from Barker.. "But I  must go and warn my poor partners,  dearest; there yet may .bo time; perhaps  they have not yet tnken possession of  your father's claim. "  "Ves, George, dear," said tho young  girl, with sparkling eyes, "and tell them  to do so at once !"  "What?"-gasped Barker.  "At onca���������do you hear���������or it may be too  Into!   Go quick."  "But your fathor���������oh, I see, dearost.you  will toil him all yourself, aud spare 1110."'  "I shall do nothing so foolish, George.  Nor shall you! Don't you seo the note  isn't duo for a month? Stop! Have yob  told anybody but paw and mei?"  "Only the bank manager."  Sho ran out of the room  and  returned  In a minute, tying tho  most enchanting  of hats by a ribbon under her   oval chin.  "I'll run over and fix bim," sho said.  ,   "Fix him?"   roturned Barker, aghast.  "Yes. - I'll say your wicked partners  bavo been playing a practical joke on  you, and he mustn't give you away.  He'll do anything for mo."  . "But my partners didn't. On tho contrary���������"  "Don't tell me, George," said Miss  Kitty, severely. "Tbey ought ncvor to  havo let you come here with that stuff.

Whatever it represent!!, tho exclamation  was apparently so protracted that Miss  Kitty was- obllaod to pu3h her lover to  tlio front landing boforo she could disappear by tho back stairs. But once in  the strocts Barker no longer lingered. It  was a good three miles back to thc gulch;  ho.might still reach lt by thc time bis  partners woro taking their noonday rest,  and he resolved that, although the messenger had prcccdod him, thoy would not  onter upon the claim until the afternoon.  For Barker, in spite of his mistress' injunction, had no Idea of taking what lie  couldn't pay for; ho would keep the  claim intact until something could be  settled. For tho rest, ho walked on  air! Kitty loved him! Tho acenrsod  wealth no longer stood betweon them!  Thoy wero both poor now���������everything  was possiblo .  The sun was bogluning to send dwarf  shadows towards tlio east whon he rench-  THEY LAUGHED WITH THEIR BACKS AGAINST  A THEE. ���������  ed the gulcl>- Here a now trepidation  seized him. How would his partners receive the news of his uttor failuro? Ho  was happy, for ho had gained Kitty  throught it. But they ? For a moment  it sooined to him that he had purchased  his happiness through their loss. He  stopped, took off his hat and ran his  lingers remorsefully through his damp,  curls.  Another thing troubled hini. He -had  reached the crest of tho gulch- where tho  old working ground was spread beforo  .nim like a map. Thoy were knot thore;  neither were they lying under tho four  pines on the ridge whero they'wore wont  to rest at midday. Ho turned with some  alarm to tlie new claim adjoining theirs  ���������but there was no sign of them there,  either. A sudden foar that thoy had,  after parting from him, given up the  claim iu a fit of disgust and depression  and departed, now overcame, hiin. Ho  clapped bis hat on his head and ran in  tho direction of thc cabin.  - Ho had noarly reached it when the  rough challengo of "Who's there" from  the bushes halted him, and Dcmorest  "suddenly swuug into tho trail. Butthe  singular look of sternness and impatience which he was woaring vanished as  ho saw Barker, and with a loud shout of  "AU right, its only Barkor! Hooray!"  he ran towards him.' In an instant he  was jolnod by Stacy from tbe cabin, and  the two men catching hold of their returning partner waltzed him joyfully  and .breathlessly into tho cabin. But tho  quick-eyed Domorest suddenly let- go his  hold and stared'at Barker's face. "Why,  Barker, old boy���������what's lipf".   ���������  "Everything's up,".gaspod the breath-  loss Barker. "It's all up. about the  stocks. It's all a mistake���������all an infernal lie of that newspaper.. I never had  tbe right kind of shares.

"It looks uncommonly like it, " drawled Stacy.-  Barker gazed, blankly from tho ono to  tho other. "Shall wo pass our young  friend in to see tho show?" said Demorest to Stacy. ir  ��������� "Yes, if he'll be perfectly quiet .and  not breathe on tho glasses," returned  Stacy..  Thoy each gravely took one of Barker's  hands and led him to an old flour barrel on which stood a large tin prospecting pan, in which the partners also occasionally used - to knead their bread. A  dirty towel covered it Demorest whisked it dexterously aside and disclosed  three large fragments of decomposed gold  and quartz. Barker started back. "Heft  it," said Demorest, grimly. Barker  could scarcely lift the pan 1  "Four thousand dollars' weight If a  penny]"   said  Stacy, in short,  staccato  sentences. "In a pocket 1 Brought it  out tho second stroke of the pick!

Thon  Demorest reckoned as It was done, it  couldn't be undone, and we ought to  make just ono 'prospect' on the claim,  and strike a single stroko for you. And  thero it is!

"But you gavo ihe note���������and It is not  duo for thirty days."  A recollection Hashed upon Barkor.  "Yos," ho said, with thoughtful simplicity, "That's what Kitty said."  "O, Kitty said so," said both partners, gravoly.  "Yes." stammered Barkor, turning  away with a heightened color, "and as I  didn't stay there to lunchoon, I think  I'd better bo getting it ready." Ho  picked up tho colleo pot and turned ,to  the hearth as his two' partners stepped  boyoud tho door.-.  "Wasn't it oxactly liko him?" said  Demorest .  "Him all over," said Stacy.  "And his worry over that note?" said  Demorost.  "Aud 'what Kitty said',"   said Stacy.  "Look here! I reckon that wasn't all  that Kitty said.'.'  "Of course not."  "What luck!"  The-End.  A Glance Abroad.  Australia has a population of loss than  5,000,000, but economists declare it could  support 100,000,000 with ease.  Lake Baikal, in Siberia, according to  recent Russian surveys, covers 15,300  square miles, is 5,021 feet deep in some  parts and is y80 miles from ono end of  its crescent to the otlier. It is the sixth  largest lake in tho world and the deepest  of all. Its level 13 1,5(31 foot abovo that  of the sea.  Potcr's pence collected in one weok of  September amounted to 130,000 francs  from Italy, 235,000 from Franco, 300,000  from Austria, 100,000 from Spain and  70,000 from Belgium. Besides, the Primate of Hungary and the Duke of Norfolk  each gave 50.000 francs, and tho Austrian  Archduke3 a large sum.  Ona ot Switzerland's mountain lakes,  the Macrjclen See, at the foot of the  Eggishorn,- was completely emptied in  ono night during tha hot spell in September. Tho lako was a mile long by a  sixth of a mile wldo and 130 feet dpop;  the water probably es. nped through  fissures In tho ice of the neighboring  glaciers.  Postage stamps in Macao form' a not  unimportant source, of revenue A new  set of stamps was issued during the  course of the year, with thc result that  the old issuo was much sought after by  . philatelists in all parts of tho world, the  simultaneous sale of both issues giving  1 thc impression that the old stock would  soon be exhausted and causing an appro*  . clable rlso in the stamp revenue.  The long-forgotten tomb of good King  Bone and Isabella of Lorraino, his first  wifo, was accidentally brought to "light  the othor day in tho Cathedral of Angers.  Isabella's tin coffin was not oponed, but  Reno's was. . A crown,' a scepter, an orb  ���������the insignia of his vain sovereignty  ovor. Naplos���������were found in Reno's leaden  coffin. As thoy woro covered with green  oxide, the gold used In making -them  must have boon well alloyed with copper.'  A girl named Slabon, callod , "the  Sleeping Girl of Sosnicza," is creating a  sensation in Upper Silesia. Sho fell ill  there about eight weeks ago of heart apoplexy, and lias suffered ever slnco from  hysteria. Sho professes to have recoived  direct communications from the Virgin  Maryland thousands havo beon Hocking  to her daily in the hope of witnessing  the '.'miracle,' in spite' of tho fact that  the priest has warned them that it is all  an illusion. Sho is - now in an insane  asylum. .. -  ���������iTho-P-ublio-.Hoalth and���������Housing-Com*  mittoe of tho London County Council  has prepared a scheme for tho Improvement of the area on the north sido of  thc Strand. It has a total extent of  three aiid a half acres, and In some parts  tho present population is upward of "800  to thc aero. Tho number of persons proposed to be displaced is 3,308, and provision can bo niade fer re-housing about  1,770 of those. - The not cost of the property to bo acquired under the scheme  is 51,071,250. j-  A deeper spot in the ".ocean, than any  yet known has boen rocently found by  H. M. surveying ship Penguin. Unfortunately tho observation was not com-  ploto, as a fault iu tho wire caused it to  break whon 4,1)00 fathoms had run out  without bottom having boen reached.  Commander Balfour reports - that this  occurred in latitude 23.40 south, longitude 175.10 wost. about sixty milos north  of a sounding of 4,428 fathoms obtalnod  by Capatln Aldrich In 1888. A previous  attempt to reach bottom had been foiled  by.a similar accident to tho wlro when  4,300 fathoms "' had passed out, and tho  rising wind and ooa proventcd any - further attempt at tho timo.  "\Ye Enjoy I.Ikenesg In Kuch Other.    .  What we truly enjoy In each other is  likeness, not unllkenuss. That is what  makes tho pleasure of good society.

McVicar during the past week  has been displaying some samples of ore  from the Lardeau district and rd assay  certificate which have excited considerable comment. Tbe ore is from the Olive  May, Little Fred and three other claims  owned by Lade brothers and Arthur  Gunn and the assay certificate gives a  value of H$}4 ounces in gold. Calculated  at $20 per ounce, the result shown is  $2,960 per toe The ore shows-iron  pyrites and graphic tellurium nnd according to tbe statement of Mr. McVicar  it was taken from an 8-foot ledge, lie  does not know- the width of the pay  streak. There are three different ledges  on the group and were discovered about  one mouth ago. Two tons have been  shipped to the Nelson smelter for testing  and a large sample lias been placed ou  exhibition in the Bank of British Columbia. Mr. McVicar states that the ore is  identical witli that taken from Boulder  creek.  Waived Extradition.  James Hardy, .alias Jesse B. Roper,  alias J, Taylor, the mun who is wanted  in Biixter county, Arkansas, for tlie  huuder of Sheriff G. A. Byler, waived  extradition last -Monday and was  taken to Northport" by Constable Ince  where he was turned over to Sheriff  Lewis Cass Smith of Arkansas. The  prisoner waived extradition at the  suggestion of his counsel who told him  that sooner or later he would have to  fight the case out in Arkansas and he  could only delay matters a few clays  by refusing to waive this right.  Ail vice from Yubou.  J. P. Kobertson. of the London and  British Columbia Gold Fields states that  he has received late advices from his  AlaskaD expedition, to the effect that it  is steadily pushing forward and hopes to  reach Dawson city next month. The  trip has been a most uncomfortable one  but no accidents have occurred to retard  its progress. The equipment of the expedition includes everything necessary to  the comfort of tbe men and is probably  one of the best outfits now on the way to  the. gold fields.  THE EOSSLAND ASSAULT.  This week Mr. Harold Gruner, of Calgary, who is on a visit to East Kootenay,  showed the Miner while passing through  to Fort Steele, some of the famed black  sand found in the Saskatchewan river  near Edmonton, in the district of Alberta,  which analysis has proved to be exceedingly rich in gold. The sand is far from  golden in its appearance. It looks like  a mixture of black and grey sand mingled together. It is impregnated with  tiny pebbles and minute pieces of rock.  It is very heavy in bulk. It is found in  tbe bed of the river and the area where  it is found is some miles in extent. The  deposits do not appear to be growing  much less as they are quickly renewed by  successive floods when the waters of the  river become high. Several companies  have been formed to treat this sand so  as tn obtain from it the'great amount of  gold that exists in it. Crushing, amalgamation or extraction by means of quicksilver have been attempted. This process  has not been a complete success. Another process has been tried of treatment by  the action of fire, roasting and smelting,  but the Miner does not know with what  result.  The analysis or assays made go as high  as $400 per ton. There are millions of  tons. The great problem to be solved is  how to extract the dollars from the tons.  The Bearcher after wealth among its particles is so busy with the solution of this  problem, that he does not pay much attention to the question���������where does tbis  gold sand come from ? This is a geological and scientific question. There are no  quartz reefs near.' The only thitig approaching rook, nre some immense boulders scattered about. A scientific theory  is that these have drifted away from  Hudson's Bay in the glacial age. Ibis  may be so but they do seem to have  brought the gold with them, because examination has proved so far as it has  gone, that there is uo gold quartz in nny  of them. While the Miner is interested  in this latter question, it is much more  interested in the solution of the problem  how to get " the sugar out ot the sand,"  because in certain of tbe rivers aud  streams of East Kootenny there are similar deposits of this sand which have  been proved to be rich in gold. There are  deposits in Blaeberry creek iu the Donald division in the northern part of East  Kootenay. The Blaeberry deposits are*  nearly opposite the Saskatchewan deposits on the other side of.the Rockies.  The Miner's theory is���������and the Miner  is generally correct���������that those sandy de-  po its come from the gold deposits in the  Rockies. The sources, which are many,  of the head waters of the Saskatchewan  lie far away in among these, mountains.  The opposite side of the Rockies has  been^proved both in placer and quartz,  and there is no reason why these depos-  its.should.notextend- through the mountains to the eastern side. On the contrary, geologists will tell you the formation is the same and that therefore tbe  quartz ledges must be of the same character. The fotks and tributaries.of the  Saskatchewan ruu with "considerable velocity, and the river is not a slow moving  stream until it is far away from the  mountains. The carrying force of water  is great. Rocks and boulders can be  moved long distances through its agency.  The gold is flour gold and can be more  easily and readily carried along. But the  question may be very aptly put, why do  the deposits occur where they do? why  should they .bo at those particular places?  The character of the earth will readily  account for this. Certain portions of the  earth possess great magnetic attractions  and it may be and is in all probability at  these places where these magnetic properties exist that the deposits,aro made.  ���������Golden, B. C, Miner.  COftfcIlo-Croiijn AhhuuH t'������xe  t<> be  Tried  Kvforc the Next Assize.  In the next court of assizes which convenes iu October, Pr.ter Costello, a fore1  man in the employ ot Contractor Davey  of Rossland will be tried for an assault  upon Edward Cronyn, barrister.  The assault was the direct outcome of  the inquest over the remains of James  Youngclause, who was killed by a cave-in  of the sewer over which Costello was in  charge. The friends of Mr. Youngclause  wero represented before the corouer's  jury by J. A. McDonald, of the law firm  of McDonald & Cronyn. Tho entire case  hung on the point as to whether or not  the contractor and the foreman had used  proper precautions against such accidents  as the one that killed the deceased. To  secure expert evidence on this point, Mr,  Cronyn, the legal partner of Mr. MacDonald, visited the scene of the accident  about two o'clock in the afternoon with  David Lawson, a contractor of thirty  years experience.  It was the intention to have Mr. Law-  son look over the sewer at the point  where the fatality occurred, with the  view ef discovering whether or not the  nature of the soil demanded precautions  that were not taken. As the coroner had  placed a guard over the spot, Mr. Cronyn  -applied for au order from Coroner Bowes  authorizing the bearer to inspect the  sewer. This was readily secured, aud  the twe walked down to the ditch in  front of tbe International, where Youngclause was killed.  Mr. Costello saw them coming and  when Mr. Cronyn stated their errand and  showed the order from the coroner, he  curtly replied that as the order was good  for the bearer Lawson could not go into  the ditch. Mr. Cronyn then asked one  of the bystanders to go down into the  sewer, but as he declined the attorney  jumped down himself and scooped up a  handful of earth from the bottom of tbe  ditch. As he was getting out of the  sewer, it is said that Costello endeavored  to kick the earth out of tbe hand of  Cronyn, but missed his calculation, bis  foot striking Cronyn on the side of the  head, knocked him senseless.  The case will be one of wide iuterest,  as all parlies are well known throughout  this section. -    - .  The Waterworks. -  Notwithstanding the heavy rains of  last week the grading for the new city  waterworks flume is completed, and the  work of constructing the fiume has been  commenced. This work has been retarded to a certain extent by the poor quality  of lumber which come3 from Ymir. In  some instances ns many as fifty knots  have been coumedo in one piece of timber. The iron pipe for the mains, which  comes from McKiesport, Pa., will be on  the ground by the 15th inst., and Engineer McCulloch confidently expects to  have tbe water turned ou for city use by  Novembej 1st.

C, SATURDAY, SEPT. u, 1897.  i '  COMMITTED FOE TEIAL.  ma  Padily Miles Forcibly tutors flic Kootenny  Lake (ieueral Ilonpllnl.  On Thursday morning John Miles, an  old resident of Nelson, and better.known  as Paddy Miles, was brought before  Magistrate Crease, in the municipal  court, on complaint of Mrs. Binney,  matron of the Kootenay Lake General  Hospital, who charged him with making  a forced entrance iuto the .hospital building on-Wednesday night.  It appears that Miles, in an intoxicated  condition made a -visit to the hospital on  Wednesday evening to see a female  patient by the name of .McDouald. Fearing that trouble would result if he were  admitted, as on a previous occasion he  had beeu in court for assualt upon the  woman, Matron Bluney refused to allow  Miles to enter the house. He then forced  an entrance, and began using vile and  abusive language to all whom he met.  Many of the patients, fearing that they  would receive bodily harm appeared  upon the scene, clad in their night robes  and armed witb pokers and clubs. Miles  was finally ejected from the house, after  which Mrs. Blaney barricaded the door  with a heavy operating table and with  fear and trembling remained on guard  for a second attack.

A question touching the legality of  notices of improvement, on which the  issuance of crown grants are based,  was discussed in Mr. Justice Drake's  court on Wednesday. Tlie opinion  handed down' was to the effect that  when a notice of intention, to apply  foi- a certilicate of improvement contains the notice of application-of more  than one mineral claim, Lhe notice is  illegal. The argument before the  court on Wednesday was on the motion of the "Contact and Excelsior"  mineral claims for leave to issue writ.  The Excelsios people" applied for a certificate of improvement on which to  obtain a Crown grant, but on account  of tbe illegality- of the notice as it ap-  : peared in the Gazette, the Judge allowed the "Contact" owners to bring  their motion, for leave to issue writ. .
