He extended the injunction issued  by   Judge Forin   restraining the  Iron  . Musk   from further   sinking upon the  tunnel ot the Center Star compauy.   He  also relieved the Center Star company  from the. undertaking iu Judge Forin's  order to the effect that they would not  proceed further in their own ground or  in defendants ground.   Justice Walkem  in making the order for the continuance  of the injunction   "   "*  *"   '"--������������������-������������  , should abide the e$ent of the action  his decision he quoted Judge Holden to  the effect that an apex  meant what the  statistics described it to be; namely a top  of a ledge aud not  its highest point, or  so to  speak, not its mathematical pinnacle.      Mr.   Bodwell   moved   for. the  appointment of ii day when the full court  could hear this appeal from his judgment  Atter  somo   discussion the order   was  made, fixing November 22 as the day.  The judgment in full is as follows:  The solution of tbe issue between the  parties to this action depends upon the  construction to be placed upon Sections  31 and 32 ot our Mineral Act of 1881,'  which,are as follows:  31. The''holder or owner of a mineral claim  shall have thc exclusive right to, and possession of, all the surface within the lines ot his  location,: andf of all veins or lodes, '"������������������������'"������������������������������  their entire depth, thc top   orap...  * ��������� h surface lines extended down-  restraining the Iron Mask company from  trespassing iu the plaintiffs' tunnel,which  runs horizontally through the dip of their  northerly vein, and   which  vein  is  described in the affidavits as vein No. 2,  whose apex is in their ground.     In   the  order made by the learned  judge,   it is  stated that the plaintiffs undertook to do |  no further work in any of their "tunnels  or workings" within   the  boundaries  of  the Iron Mask location uutil that order  should be dissolved or otherwise disposed  of.   On tbe motion before me I held that  order as it stood estopped the plaintiffs  from further  sinking a shaft,   which  is  designated on the plans as shaft- No. 3. as  it was included in the word "workings.,'  "this shatt,according to Mr. Durnnt's afli-  davit.hns been sunk to a depth of 198 feet  ���������in ore ell that distance���������the ore being  the dip of the plaintiff's vein No .2,which  as I have said runs iuto the  Iron Mask.  Both he and Mr. Joyce state that the shaft  is not intended to be need  for  hoisting  purposes, but the  defendants  have  no  right whatever to object to it ou that account as the shaft is in ore which by law,  belongs to the plaintiffs.

Hon  day afternoon  Clifford Sifton was Been Wednes-  ���������������.; u.^rnoon by a reporter for The  Mineh and in reply to a query regarding  British Columbia representation said:  "The representation will be altered  after a while. The representation in the  Commons tor Ontario and Quebec is one  for every 22.000 inhabitants and this  might be a fair average, here. At the  present time I do not suppose yoii have  over 25,000 population and that should  entitle you to one representative in tbe  House of Commons and it might be fair  that one of the supernnmeries representing Victoria be taken from that city to  Kootenay.   So far as the  what they intended to do andjwhat he  hnd learned had impressed hiin greatly. Nelson, he understood, was a desirable place to live and if it, was his  lot to be relieved from public life he  did not know but that lie might be  tempted to coinq here and reside.  The toast "The bar, its uses and,  abuses" was responded to by E. V.  Bodwell and W. A. Macdonald. "Tha I  Legislature" was responded to by J.  Fred Hume. Dr. Arthur and Dr.  Forin spoke on on the medical profession and Hector McRea and J. Roderick Robinson responded to the toast  "The Mines." Rev. Robert Frew acquitted himself well in his response to  the totist "The Ladies.', Messrs. Holfc  and Ringstoul responded to the  "The Bankers."

He, therefore, desires to be'under-  stood as not consenting now to any such  undertaking, and I certainly, under the  circumstances,have no right to require it.

With respect to the maiu question, the  evidence is wholly one Bided, for the only.1  affidavits before me are those put  in   on  behalf of the plaintiffs by   Mr.   Durant,  their superintendent and Mr. Joyce,their  foreman.   Mr. Duraut testifies to the accuracy of several plans showing, as they  do, the relative position   of  the  Center  Star, Iron Mask, War Eagle, and Idaho  locations, and also the positions  of  the  plaiotiffs shaft No. 8 and their vein No.2,  ' -*��������� Ji������^ J., o ../trill*  of what is going on; how tar the various  camps have been developed and what is  needed to further develop tbeni.   I have  a great many representations to make tc  to the government in regard to tbis district.   It it is frequently" very difficult to  understand conflicting views when one  has not  been  here personally and seen  for himself.   I do not profess to he iu a  position to express a positive   opinion  upon what is wanted but there are two  questions which must be taken up and  they practically resolve themselves into  --   .one question.   This question is the suc-  ex-1 cesstul treatment ot the lower grade ores  and tbe establishment ot smelting and  refining industries in British Columbia. 1  The establishment ot smelting and refining   industry is a large question   and  involves n great many considerations. As  I understand it, one of the important  considerations is- the manufacture of bi-  products resulting from tbe industry but  no doubt this will all come ia good time'.  As far as I can see, however, Kootenay  district has uo reason to complain of its  progress being two slow.-    I think the  ad-  he  the vein iu dispute, and its dip in a north-  progress has been us fast as could reason-  erly direction at an angle ot about 35������ iuto  ably be expected."  ~ x��������� M������ai, ormind.    He  also states     "Can you suggest how these smelting  Provided, however,  ITOVlUCU,    1IV.V..���������,     .  tion shall have thu right ot way through the  said'space'of intersection for the purpose of  thc convenient working of thc said subsequent  location; and, provided, also, that where two  or "more veins or lodes unite, on their downward dip/ the oldest or prior location shall  , t_ take tho vein or lode below the point of union.  the  including all the space of intersection  It will be observed that the latter part  of Section 31 provides that where the  centre line of a mineral claim crosses a  vein, or as the legislature expresses it "is  laid crosswise of a vein," the owner shall  only be entitled to so much ot tho vein as  the line crosses at the surface, and that,  in such an event, the side lines of the  claim' shall become its end lines���������a very  radical change, inasmuch as it deprives  the owner of .extra lateral right which he  would otherwise, have been entitled to.  The section theu proceeds, in effect, to  define a "crosswise location" as one whose  smallest angle made by the intersection  of the center location line with the trend  or "strike" of a vein is greater than 45������.  , This "smallest angle" cf intersection, tor  there is such nn intersection in the plaintiff's vein, which is the one in dispute  and which dips   into the Iron Mask, is  '-   shown ou two ot the plans that are sworn  to as being accurate, (is being 30 27. For  instance, the bearing ot the Center Star  company's location 'line is N. 51 39' E.  . . and the "strike" of.their vein if N.32������06E.  The difference between the two isj obviously, 32������27', which ia, of course, lees  than tha statutory angle of 45������.. The contention,   therefore,   ot the defendants'  counsel that the plaintiff's location line is  with respect to the vein in dispute, a  ���������'crosswise location" falls to the ground.  As I construe Section 31, the apex of a  mineral vein is a statutory and not a  mathematical apex or pinnacle, but is the  at any place along its pro  the Iron Mask ground.    He  tbat he has traced this 'vein   from  easterly line of  tbe  Center   Star   claim  ttlong.itsjsujrtacejintil^it enters the "War  Eagle location, and-that no"~pgrtP"of ~ its  apex lies within the   boundaries, of   the  Iron Mask.  Moreover, iu paragraph 9 of his affidavit, he states that the mouth of the .tunnel, above referred to, is in the plaintiffs'  ground, and that its course, for a considerable distance, is within the surface  boundaries of the Iron Mask location but  through a body of ore that forms part of  the dip of the plaintiffs, veiu No. 2. Mr.  Bodwell has referred me to an American  decision, to the effect that the plaintiffs^  for instance, have been, in view of common law doctrines,  trespassers from the  re8u\t iu  moment they encroached upon the  Iron  t0 them."  aud refining industries should be established?" was asked.  "It can only be handled by a careful  ^tudy~6f~=the~question,!���������was-the reply.  "Itis a much more difficult subject than  thc people have any idea of. In regard  to the Canadian Pacific railway constructing smelters along its route, I have only  heard of it in a general way and it goes  without saying that every body would be  pleased to have, it done.   While I was ou  the coast I heard little or nothing except  measures nnd matters pertaining to the ,  .  Kloudike   outfitting   trade.     It   over-1 tection it affords them  shadows everything else. , Ot course it is  a matter of very great   importance   to  Vancouver and Victoria and is likely to"  a large and profitable cash trade  and the service perfect and it was 2 a. I  m. before the feast concluded.  The national hymn "God Save the  Queen" was followed by the toasts  "The Queen" and "The Governor General". Mr. Bostock was then called  upon and responded in his usual brilliant manner. During the course of  his remarks he said that he was glad  to welcome thc Minister of the Interior in the Kootenay as it' seemed that  the government began to see what was  wanted in British Columbia.  Hon. Mr. Sifton was the next speaker and said that while ho was closely  associated with the workings ''of   this  country,   his  territory  ranged   from  Rat Portage to the Pacific coast,which  made it a difficult matter to be thoroughly informed on all matters.    He  was often saved complications by  mitting   the  lack   of   knowledge  should have.    Of  late  he  had   been  more and more interested in   the  do-  ings of  the  Kootenay   country   and  more and move   pleasantly  surprised  with tlie progress made.   From obser-  vatjon.he was sure that even   greater  strides'" would be made, in .the next o  or 6 years.   Ho spoke at length in regard to the routes to   the "Klondyke,  having in a large measure  made   personal investigations.   His description  of the different passes was thorough.  The  Stickeen   pass  was  one   which  would make an all Canadian route and  was the one that seemed most feasible.  He gathered  much of his information  fiom Ogilvie's reports.   He   spoke   of  the probable large influx of people into  that country next year.   At the present time about 95 per   cent   of   those  who had gone there   were foreigners  and many  would   prefer  purchasing  Jtheir supplies from Americans instead  of Canadians.   WhihritliacVbeehhar  to establish customs officers there  the collection of duties,   much   better  success was met with  than   had been  anticipated." The greater class of people who have gone   there   are  abiding and respectable class,  prefer to find law and   order  j spect it themselves and desire the pro-  at thc visit of the gentlemen and the  pleasure it had given theni to meet  and confer.

COMFORTING.  The news of the appointments of  Messrs. Templeman and Mclnnes to  their respective high positions, only  reached us last week barely, in time to  he printed. AVe were thus prevented  Irom offering our congratulations to  the new Lieut-Governor and the new  Senator. As brothers of the pen, no  less than as citizens, we congratulate  Mr. Templeman on reaching the reward which his services to his party  have so richly merited. To his efforts  and to his plucky struggles in Victoria  is largely due the revival of liberalism  throughout the Province and we may  be assured that from his seat in the  Councils of the Dominion the affairs  of the Province will receive an intelligent attention and care which their  increasing importance requires.  Hitherto our own particular corner  of the Province has been terra incognita at Ottawa, though it in only fair  to .add that during the later years of  Mr. Mara's representation he did what  he could to bring it into notice. But  Kootenay had no part in Mr. Mara's  election. So short a time ago as that  itwas not worth the while of the officials who ' conduct elections, even to  give her notice that there was going  to be an election and the member was  actually elected before the news  reached her, It would be a weary  task to ask our reakcrs   to   follow us  The annual speech which it is customary for the Prime Minister of England to deliver at the dinner of the  Lord Mayor of London on the Oth of  November is looked forward to with  eagerness all over tho world. In spite  of all carping critics and jealous outsiders it is a fact that England holds  the reins that guide the affairs of the  world and in the languageof the West,  what the Premier of England says,  goes.  Only a telegraphic fragment of thc  speech has reachel us but it settles the  question of England's foreign relations  which affect us most. It contains the  strongest assurance which can be given  that there will be no trouble with the  United States over the seal question.  It never oven mentions it. The matter is not of sufficient importance to  merit a place among the great affairs  dealt with.  As far as the fragment goes, the  most prominent notice is given to our  relations with France in Central Africa. Lord Salisbury assured the world  that we were there on business and  had no "high falutin" notions of just  adding so much'useless territory tothe  Empire. So long as the country was  peacefully governed and we had full  rights of trading (this latter implied,  not spoken) it was a matter of indifference to us who had the trouble and  expense of subduing the wild tribes  there and ruling over them. It is  pretty safe to say in any event that this  is a matter which the French cannot  do. They have tried recently in Madagascar with results worse than indifferent. Besides if what we hear from  France is true they will have their  hands full at home. The c oming parliament will be full of Royalists and  they may not unlikely take the opportunity of re-establishing a Monarchy  and of abolishing the Republic which  has proved such a failure and of which  everyone is tired.  But bur relations with France in  Central Africa are not of much moment to us here and may lie safely left  to Lord Salisbury, who by the way  made no reference at all to his own re-  ported retirement. -  .again through the oft repeated tale of  her sudden and wonderous - growth  since then. But it is necessary - that  it should be driven home with a  sledge hammer into the heads of the  government at Ottawa, and fortunately there is a simple means at" hand  of doing it. Revenue is the breath of  life to a government," and our repre;  sentatives have only to point out the  amount of this that is now being contributed by the Nelson Custom's  House to show the authorities that  Kootenay is a very important district  indeed.  When next the time comes for serving out honors  Kootenay  may  fairly  -ask to come in for her share, and , at  the next opportunity she will certainly  ask not to be included in one vast  electoral district that stretches almost  from tile Yukon to the Ueited States,  bub to have a member to herself to  which her population, and the value  of her products most certainly entitle  her. '  Secure in his seat and naturally giving his best attention to his   home at  - Victoria, we feel certain that wc may  count on Mir. Templeman's aid in acquiring the privileges wc desire for  our own district. -  district in British Columbia. And it  is only in its infancy..  South Kootenay should certainly  have two members and it will be her  own fault if they are men of no  account. She owns amongst her sons  plenty of men who if they chose could  rule the roostLat Victoria, If she sent  two such,both on the same side of the  House, it matters littlo which, she  would be a power in the land. Mining  matters arc the. very life blood . of  British Columbia and when they come  up for discussion South Kootenay  should be in a position to have something to say about it which other  people would listen to.  If South Kootenay as a whole voted  for two members it would bo more  advantageous than if she were subdivided into two parts with a member  each. Tho latter system wouid tend  to ^foster those local jealousies which  arcso much to be regretted and which  not only retard our progress but make  us the laughing stock of outsiders,  while the former would give us a more  powerful voice in the councils of thc  province.  Thc visit of the Minister of the Interior to Kootenay will have a good  effect on the district. Mr. Sifton will  be able to separate the real good there  is in the country from the chaff which  floated eastward on the Hood of stock  jobbers advertisements. Under the  guidance of Mr. Bostock, his views of  the country will be properly directed  so that he will avoid the aspects afforded by the variously tinted glasses of  interested r people. We understand  that the minister is quite alive to the  necessity of fuller representation to  which we refer in another column.  rBOFESSlONAI.  CAKD8.  CHRISTIE & ANNABLE. INSURANCE.

P. 11* pass through the .narrows of the Columbia' river at night  time on both the'up and down journey.  Mi*. Bostock is especially anxious Co  bring the necessity for improvement  of navigation of this part to Mr. Sif-  ton's notice" and has expressed his  desire to have Captain ' Gore give  his views on the matter to the  Minister. No man knows more about  the subject than the popular Captain,  and it would be so much easier to  -point out the difficulties of the navigation on the spot.  A few of Kootenay's wants were  referred to in a recent edition, and the  list did not complete the tale.  It ,is lhost unfortunate that the  Premier cannot be allowed to lull himself to3 sleep in tho sweet consolation  that all of our requirements are  satisfied. It seems churlish to cbrcak  .up_sucli-a.beatiflc.repose,_but_it__ must-  be done. - Kootenay is a growing  child and her clothes want continually  altering and amending. to keep up  with her increase and expansion.  . The particular subject to which Mr.  Turner's attention is now requested, is  Parliamentary representation. At  present West. Kootenay. is divided  into two parts, north and south. The  former awkwardly, enough embraces  Rossland and the' Trail Creek district.  It is true that when this division was  made Trail Creek was barely a camp.  Its great mines" were unexploited and  the whole of them,'lock, stock and  .barrel could have been bought for a  few thousands. Trail Creek therefore  was thrown to Mr. Kellie like a bone  to a dog.; The excitement of the  general elections of 1894 had barely  calmed down when Trail Creek began,  to blossom out. The story of its  growth is of course everywhere known  ahd it would he no less'absurd that it  should in the future be attached to the  northern division than that it should  be represented by such a man as Mr.  Kellie, who by the way .voted with the  government for the Assessment bill.  Nelson, the Slocan and Rossland  should be formed into one district with  two members; Its population now is  in the neighborhood of 25,000, and it  would not be surprising if during the  life of the coming parliament it  doubled���������or even trebled��������� that number. But apart froni the actual number of. its inhabitants it can lay other  .claims to fuller representation than it  now has. The value of its exports,  which for the first ten months of the  year have, reached nearly seven millions of dollars, and the amount of  import duty paid by its merchants,  which for the same period amounts to  8310.435 shows that its trade and business  is second  to that of no other  Ko Mure l������allj' Brenil.  A new philosophy of diet has arisen in  England. Its first nxiom is that "Give  ns this day our daily bread" is a mistaken  prayer.  Mr. T. 1'. O'Connor, M. I\, writes a  whole column on tbe new dietary doctrine to the London Telegraph. "Bread  is the staff of death," he says, and he  proves it���������to his own satisfaction.  His demonstration is simple and clear.  Starchy food is the most difficult of digestion. Bread contains 40 per cent, of  starch, therefore is eminently indigestible and destructive of health.  Moreover, Mr.. O'Connor points triumphantly to the fact that the most  popular formula of the day for reducing  obesity and curing dyspepsia begins by  excluding bread from the patient's hill of  fare.  No discovery could be more opportune  for the British people than the deadly  effects ot bread upon the human system.  In a year when foreign wheat is phenomenally scarce and high priced, the proof  that it is not only nn unnecessary but a  dangerous article of food ought to be  hailed with enthusiasm.  Yet in spite of the deadliness of starch  aud tlie~~starchihe3s"~o.f"bread^ "Rritish"  ports give a wide-open welcome to cargoes of American wheat, even at a dollar a bushel. And the French people,  heedless of the life-shortening influence  of bread, are actuully clamoring for the  decrease of the duty" on our grain,".in  order that they may purchase more  cheaply the "staff of death."  , New discoveries are notoriously received at first with coldnesn by. the  masses.. Parmeutier nearly lost his life  trying to popularize lhe potato in France.  Mr. O'Connor can afford to wait for vindication until the coming man has  learned how to live long and prosper oii  a breadless basis.���������N. W World.

Word* of Wiadout, and Thoughts  Worth Pondering Upon Spiritual  ���������nd Moral Subjects���������Gathered from  Ihe Religions and Secular Press.  The Wearer's Shuttle."  OB, ranked by Carlyle anions tlio elect  minds ot tlie earth;  likened hia days to  a  weaver* -shuttle.  For hiin.life was ft  loom,   -the     warp  God's thought, the  woof     m a n' a  though t,    ideal*  were patterns, tlie  days and their duties    were    flying  shuttles thrown by  man's will and purpose.    Oft tlie  weaving seems to go  without much pain, full oft the pattern  seems blotted and obscure, having libtle  purpose or beauty.   But the poet comforts himself with the thought that he  beholds the tapestry from the wrong  side, while on the right side sits an unseen weaver for whom each thread is  interpreted by.the pattern.    Looking  up toward, the model, he selects the  thread that shall repeat the gold or  scarlet of the glowing pattern.   As 111  the famous Gobelin factory the weavers have for copy the most glorious pictures from the Louvre, and with long  patience and with great skill eo interlace the silken colors as to ordng out tlie  lines and lineaments of heroes and angels and    of    divinity itself, so  God  through birth and events sketches the  outline, and men are to use the details  of life to fill it up, until the texture of  character stands  forth  with  a value  beyond tlie wealth of princes.   For tlie  moment the weaving may seem strange  to men, and oft for the poet the threads  are as heavy with tears as the grass  with rain and dew.   But remembering  that the dark threads serve for beauty  not less than light threads, the poet suggests that the shuttle of sorrow may be  as necessary to man as the shuttle of  joy.   Musing upon the weaver and his  loom, Job reminds us that a great life  Is mado up of little deeds, Just as the  finest tapestry represents many interlacing threads; just as the harvest witli  Its* wide-sheeted abundance is made up  of separate wheat-stalks; just ns tho  symphony represents many intermingling notes.   The weaving shuttle tells  us more than can all the libraries about  the mystery of life, bright with its vis-  Ions of angels, glorious with the divinity that shapes our ends, dark "also with  clouds and darkness    that    surround  God's plans, while afar off.is fche-uiroKr  uow appear."���������Newell Dwight Hillis.

Yours iu the bowels of Christ, .  ; COTTON MATHEP  Old-Time Ministerial Palaric^  The Evangelist has a pathetic article'  about the poor pay of tlie Rev. Jonathan Edwards, in Sloekbridge, Mass.  'i/his was in the days when Congregationalism was established by law, and  'ihe town had to provide for the support of the ministry. At a town meeting February 22, 1750, it was voted  that "in case Rev. Jonathan Edward?  should settle with them in the work  of the ministry," he should receive the  sum.of six pounds fifteen shillings and  four pence; about thirty-Jive" dollars  lawful. money. Besides'this, he was  to have 100 sleigh-loads of firewood, of  which the Indians were to furnish  eighty and the white settlers twenty,  which they were to chop in the woods  and draw on sleds to his dwelling-  house. This was not all, however, that  Mr. Edwards received. He " was to  have a place to live,, and plenty of  ground on whieh he could raise vegetables and whatever was necessary.  All kinds of live stock in those days  were very cheap, judged by-our standards. "It is interesting, however,"  says the Christian Advocate, "to compare the money part of his salary witb  that of Bishop Asbury and the other  preachers of an early day. According  to the records tho||amount he received  per annum was SG4, and up to the time  of his death in 1S1G lie never rose beyond that sum."  Times have changed since then. Some  thing* yere much, cheaper then thgfi.  now,'while.others we.*e moch dearer;  but we have a lingering suspicion that  if the men who to-day pVofess to believe as did Edwards aud Asbury,  should preach as they did, practice as  they did, work as they did, it is doubtful if they would gee larger salaries  than those eminent ia borers received;  and as for Paul, who preached a far  purer gospel than elt'jer of them, his  salary was probably as much smaller  as his preaching was better than theirs.  A Lesson of hclf*CO;itrol.  An eminent. Seof/et divine was in his  youtli regarded by thc villagers where  he was brought up as a "gay, wild lad."  Ono day he jumped into an old woman's  garden and commenced to pluck the  berries off the bushes. The old woman  gave chase, whereupon lie leaped tlie  dyke, and was soon scudding up the  road, the old woman yelling after him:  "Ye lung-legged dcevil! I'll sort ye for  this yet."  Years after he took the degree of LL.  D., and, preaching in his native village,  he observed the.old lady in the congregation. At the close of tho service ho  sent tlio beadle to say he desired to  speak to her. After some talk she inquired the meaning of the !:LL. I.i."  after his name.  "Oh," slid lie, with, a waggish loo'e in'  liis eye, "do you not remember dubbing me that yourself on the "da;" I  plundered your garden?"  The words came back to tlie old woman's mind, and with a gloani of horror  on her face, she retired, exclaiming,  "Well, I never!" aud mentally resolved  she would be more guarded with hei1  tongue in the future.���������London Telegraph. ���������  ���������  Peaceful Be.

What Is   a Christian?  It Is certainly remarkable that th  word "Christian" occurs only three  times in tho New Testament.

This Is a story et how one man did  rt hat a sheriff, police force," citizens and  fire department failed to do. Unarmed,  save for a silver spoon, and unassisted, he dispersed a blood-thirsty mob  bent on murder and arson.  It was during the Chinese riots in  Denver in the year 1SS0, the bloodiest  tu Its history. An angry mob filled the  streets and made the air blue with its  mutterings.  When things had reached this stage  a gigantic cowboy In a red flannel shirt  drove into the crowd waving his lariat  over his head and' shouting, "Let's  burn the rats out of their holes." This  was all sufficient to inflame thc crowd  to violence and to the Chinese quarter  of the town they went.  There were probably 500 Chinamen  and Chinese women huddled together  in a lot of dens covering an area of half  a block. Tlie different apartments wero  connected by narrow secret passages.  These were typical dens' of Chinese  vice and crime, and the fumes of  opium filled the air for a block away.  It was a plague spot, and a menace to  every self-respecting citizen. As the  officers of the law fattened on it its  denizens remained unmolested.  To this place the mob rushed howling and crying for the "rats" to'' be  burned out.  Soon fhey were beyond the control of  the police, and the chief appealed to the  Kherlff. Three hundred citizens were  sworn in and armed with revolvers and  Winchesters. The sheriff tried to disperse the crowd by threats, persuasion  and by reading the riot act, but they  only hissed and hooted.  The Chinamen' barricaded their  doors, and not a sound came from within save the occasional cry of a woman.  The mob fired at the doors and 'the  sheriff threatened to fire Into the  crowd, but a dozen Winchesters were  pointed in his lace and he subsided.  Finally some one set fire to the old  frame buildings and in a moment tlie  entire Chinese quarter was in flames.  The mob, maddened by the sight,  yelled and howled. Thoy made a rush  on the doors and with some heavy lumber broke thein in and rushed through.  There were a few shots, a few cries,  and a few supplications.  They.shot down the men as they  rushed from tho burning buildings, and  then dragged them out by the queues.  They picked the little Chinese women  up in their arms and carried them out.  Quantities of silverware, cigars, liquor  nnd opium wero found and confiscated  by the rioters. What they could not  carry away with them was scattered  on the sidewalks.  The fire department came' and turned  the water on the crowd, but some one  j^u.t_the_lios'������-Aj^i--'ifi������'b,'^*'������'1-At-"-.'^,_u-','u"  the ardor of the mob.  The plaintive cries of tho women and  children were distinctly heard by tho  armed oflicers of the law, but tli'ey  stood paralyzed and did nothing.  The mob w,as drinking their fill of  blood and whisky, carrying home rich  booty, or the shapely'littlo Chinese women, when four men came out of the  building, dragging a Chinaman by the  queue. Cries of "shoot him!" went up  from the throats of a hundred men,  when a man, coatless aud hatless,  rushed into the midst of the rioters.  "You cowardly dogs!" he roared,  with a voico that resounded far above  the yells and din of the crowd. He  vouched into his hip pocket���������but, no���������it  ������������������vas-empty.���������Ho-sav.TSOLiiethiiig-glis--  ���������oiling in the firelight at liis feet and  [licked it up unnoticed. He put it into  his hip ptfeket and dashed up to the  four men. Pulling it from his pocket,  he faced them.   "Get out of here, you   : ������������������, or I will kill every coward  of you!" said  he,'waving it in their  faces.   The men stood back aghast.  "I'll kill the first  that lays  a finger on'another Chinaman.    Now  got. every coward of you."  lie still waved his hand high in the  Mr. aud its contents "glistened iu the  liiv light.  "It's Jim Moon," said one. No sooner had tho.crowd recognized him than  they threw down their weapons and  liin.leavinghlm standing alone against  i background of burning buildings ami  'cowering Chinamen, still waving his  hand and thc sliver spoon���������for it was  B.nly a spoon���������over his head.  When the oflicers of the law came  out of their trance they realized that  Iho blood-thirsty mob had been scattered by one man'wlth an ounce of determination and a silver spoon.  Jim then threw down his Improvised  pistol, had a hearty laugh at the fire  department and police, then went up  town and took a drink.  that the ventilating effect et the .numerous chimneys in iron-making and  otlier Industrial centers has its due  share in constantly driving off the vitiated air and replacing it by fresh quantities of pure air. It -was noted that  when pestilence was raging in the English town of Clifton, an elevated and  apparently salubrious residential district, Its inhabitants migrated to a.low-  lylng and murky parish in tho adjacent  town of Bristol, where the air waa  black from the smoke of numerous  chimneys, while the . mortality . waa  lower than that of the fashionable  quarter overlooking it.

Edward Bellamy's new book,"EquaI������  Ity," Is now promised to appear in a  few days. The slight delay is due to  tbe necessity for the book to appear  simultaneously in the United States,  Great Britain, France, Germany,  Switzerland, Belgium, Italy and other  countries. It is of interest to recall  that over 400,000 copies of "Looking  Backward" have been sold in this  country alone.

German ship* often have a small  taipering   bag   at   tlie   masthead, and  French vessels a "dog-vane'.'-a ltae of  corks with colored feathers on a wire.  The steamers of tlie French Line from  New York to Havre have a dog-vane a4  each masthead-it Is one of their distinguishing marks.  Steering   by   the   fly Is one way o*  steering by the wind, but there are  other tricks for finding the wind-point  A   sa'lor   can find tlie point of a stilt  breeze     by   simply   letting   It blow  against his face.   In a light   air,   almost a calm, he lifts his cap and turns  his head until he feels the cool breath  on his moist brow, which is far cinore  sensitive than his sun-tanned face;   or  he moistens tlie edge of bis hand, and  tum'ag It toward the wind, waves   lt  cently back and forth and to and fro  until the coolness of the air Is felt ox  one side of that narrow surface auc  not on the other.   In heavier   airs   ht  will moisten the palm of the hand iuw3  hold it Sat to   the   wind.   The wind-  point being found, tiie ship is sailed as  close to the  wind   as  possible,   th������  helmsman keeping his eye oo the sail-  leech.   The last quiver, and a turn ol  the -wheel keeps her off enough to AH  her sails; hut with an experienced hand  on the wheel there will be no quiver  along the leech.   For an "Al B." can  tell by the "feel" of the helm when the  ship Is about to come   up" Into   the  wind; aa a vessel "comes up" the strain  on the rudder is lessened, and by qutek-  lv checking ber he keeps the sails "rap  full nnd   asleep"-keeps   them   from  qulvering-and holds her ou her course  without so much as a glance  compass.  AFRAID OF NOTH1NO.  Uexlco'a Wild Ho*, or Peccary, Raw  from Nothing  Under the Snn.  The moat vicious and fearless of the  brute creation Is the peccary or wild  hog of Mexico.

They are rarely found singly, but go in droves of  from a hundred to thousands.   Their  ability to scent men   Is particularly  marked.    I have known a drove of  them to scent'a man a mile off and  strike as straight for him as the arrair  flies.  There Is no use to try to frights  thom with guns.   The cannonading of  a full battery would have no more effect on them  than the popping of a  fire cracker.    The only thing    to do  when they get after you is to run away  from them as fast as a horse can carry  you.    And then there Is no certainty  that they won't catch you.   They are  nearly as swift as a horse, and their endurance Is as great as their vicious-  W. A. JOWETT  MINING and  Real Estate  Broker..  NELSON, B. C.

The representation in the  Commons for Outario and Quebec is one  tor every 22,900 inhabiiants. Quebec's  sixty-five members cannot be increased no  matter to what extent the population  maybe extended unless the Biitish North  America Act of 1807 is amended, and the  representation of all tbe other Provinces  is based upon that of Quebec. British  Columbia at present is represented by six  members, three from the Island and three  from the Mainland, numbers which must  be changed before tbe next general election. It is simply a disgraceful condition  in our representation which allows a couple to Victoria, while Buddaad and Yale-  Cariboo with many hundred times greater area and vaster and more diversified  interests have but one. It is time for a  change iu tbis respect. Possibly the  forthcoming Liberal platform will make  some suggestion io remedy the anomaly.  We shall see, and that it is to be hoped  very shortly now."

B. C, S ATURDAY, NOV. 13, 1897.  J  X-  IT IS NOT ABSOLUTE.  Business Personals.  AN  IMPOETANT  THE   MINING  AMENDMENT  TO  REGULATIONS.  Lapse of a  Free  Miner's Certificate Hues  Not  Xcrewirlly Mean  Absolute  Forfeiture.  TLe British Columhia Gazette publishes this week a regulation to avoid  forfeiture of niining properties owing to  the lapsing of free miner's certificates in  certain cases. The amendment is an exceedingly important one and will be in  effect Monday, November 15. Under the  present regulations a person holding  mining properties will '"absolutely" forfeit all his rights to them if he allows but  a single day to elapse between the date  of expiration and renewal. The new  amendment contains many conditions and  does not. mean that holders of certificates  should.fail to use air possible precautions against allowing the certificate to  lapse. The amendment in full rends as  follows:  Notice is hereby given that his honor  the lieutentant-governor iu council has  been pleased to repeal the regulation of  the llth day of December, 1S96, with regard to relief against forfeiture owing to  the lapse of a free miner's certificate-  heretofore in force, and to make the following regulation iu respect thereof,  such repeal and new regulation to take  effect on the 15th day of November,  1897:  Any person or joint stock company,  being the holder of any mining property,  desiriDg relief against the forfeiture of  his or its interest in such property by  reason of an omission to obtain a new  free miner's certificate on or before the  day following the expiration ot the certificate, shall observe the following conditions:  1. Forthwith upon ascertaining the  expiry of his certificate to obtain a new  one:  2. At the time of obtaining such new  certificate file with the recorder issuing  the same, and post iu the record office,  a notice of his intention to apply for relief:  3. Within 30 days from such filing  transmit to the minister of mines the following documents and fee:���������  ' (a:) A statutory declaration setting  fortb the circumstances of such omission,  with fall particulars of the mining properties held by the applicant which.  would be affected with forfeiture:  (b.) A certificate under the hand of  tbe gold commissioner or mining recorder of _each division wherein any of  the said properties is situate, that notice  bas been:posted, and that no records  (other than those mentioned in the said  certificate, if any) adverse to the applicant's interest in the said properties have  been made by him during the time in  which the said applicant was not in possession of a valid existing free miner's  certificate:  (c.) A declaration by the applicant, or  his agent duly cognizant of the location  on the ground of the applicant's properties, and the other facts affecting the  _"case,_that~lie_has'"searched~the^records  during the interval the applicant was in  -   default, and that su?h claims do not (except as may be therein stated) conflict or  overlap auy of the properties of the applicant:' ���������  (d.)   The sum of five dollars.  /Ihe minister of mines may thereupon  . give instructions for the alteration of  the date of the applicant's free miner's  certificate so ao to conform with the date  of the expiration of the lapsed certificate,  and may also give instructions for such  amendment" to be made to the records  affected as may be considered requisite,  and any such relief may be partial as to  properties iu. respect whereof relief is  given, or so as to save adverse rights acquired during defaults of the applicant  Mining News.; c  Mrs.rA.-G.

With respect to one of the paragraphs  in Mr, Durant's affidavit where he says  the shaft, in'time, will probably reach a  point 39 feet from the present face of the  tunnel, I understand him to mean that  when the tunnel is projected 30 feet  further, tbe shaft and tunnel will meet,  and the ore of vein No. 2 be eventually  lowered instead of being hoisted. Bat  this is neither here nor there, The complaint of the plaintiffs is that the Iron  Mask oompany commenced a shaft, on  their own ground, and, continued it  downwards until it stuck into the workings in the Center Star tunnel. The injunction in question was to restrain the  defendants temporarily from farther  proceeding with this shaft, or interfering  with the plaintiff's works in their tunnel.  A continuance of the in j auction until the  hearing is now moved for, and it appears  to me, from the evidence, that the plaintiffs are entitled to it, without, giving  more than the ordinary undertaking as  to damages.  The costs of this motion will abide the  event.  PRODUCE OF THE MINES.  RETURNS FOB 1897 UP TO DATE.  OBB EXPORTED.
