Sir  William  Van Horn Practically  lines the Volley or (he Crow'*  Kent ltoad.  Out.  A notable party of government and  C. P. It. offioials passed through Nelson  yesterday from Kossland, en route to the  Slocan district. They arrived at about  the noon hour and after lunching at the  Phair, took the afternoon boat for Kaslo.  The party consisted of Sir Charles Tupper, Ottawa; C. Ashworth, London;  Alex. Dick, Hossland; Fred. W. Morse,  Winnipeg; Sir William "Van Horne, Montreal; R. B. Angus, Montreal; James  Koss, Montreal; E. S. Clanston, Montreal; B. B. Smalley,'Burlington; W.  Whyte, Winnipeg; R. Marpole, Vancouver; Geo. McL. Brown, Vancouver; H. J.  Cambie, Vancouver; L. A. Hamilton,  Winnipeg; J. H. Sussman, Kootenay;  C. E. Perry, Kootenay; ' J. P. Gedde8,:  Vancouver; J. McGillvray, Winnipeg;  J. W. Mulligan, Montreal; C. 0. Chip-  man, Winnipeg; J. Ogden Grahame,  Kamloops.  . Sir William Van Horne, president of  the C. P. R. seemed to be greatly pleased  with the progress of Nelson and tbe district generally since his last trip here  about four years ago. In speaking ot  the latest project of his company, he said:  " I expect to see ibe Crow's Nest road  completed to the head of Kootenay lake  iu one year from next month. The line  from there to Nelson will be a slow line,  but I cannot say much of it at present as  we are devoting onr attention to the  work in hand at the present moment.  The construction of the line, from the  head of the lake to Nelson will depend in  a measure upon the rapidity with which  business develops. . As soon as the road  is completed to the head ofthe lake we  will run train ferries from there to'Nel-  son so as to .connect with the C.& K.  " In regard to this trip, it is because  I am in search of information and .to  some extent it is a refresher. -It is four  years since. I have been here and I find  the change very decided,-very marked.  To.some extent the change is indicated  by the fact that we. took breakfast in  Kossland at [8 o'clock and were here  before 12." ��������� "        .  ','Ts it a fact that the C. P. R: is contemplating the construction of a road to  Teslin lake?" was asked.  ,������ "The C. P. R. as a company, is not"  was the reply." Some of the people interested in the'C.P. R. have been looking  thatway and have heen studying the sit-  ' uation, but I do not know what conclu-  "sionshavebeerfarrivedaK" "~    "  erection here, I was surprised to find a  Russian, thoroughly American and anti-  British in Bentiment, as clerk of the  works. He is tyranical to a degree. He  attacks us working.men apparently because we cannot understand his* broken  English, and has caused the dismissal of  not a few, I believe,' for that same cause.  "Now, sir, as the provincial gaol is a  public ;workj to be paid for by the people  of this country, don't you think it more  creditable to the government to have employed on it British subjects, ;who I con;  tend are as fully competent as aggressive  foreigners? The "clerk of the works is  making it so hot for us" that we will have  to throw up the job nnd give him the  chance for which he appears to be aiming, of getting men of his own class on  the works. Owing to his tyranny we  men were forced to stop work for a  couple of days a short time ago/'-  ';  It appears that about 'two; weeks ago  the men "struck" and for the greater  part of two days the work was practically at a standstill. They were induced  to return, it is said, by a threat that, if  they did' not do so, that they would not  be permitted to when the difficulty was  settled. When Premier Turner came to  Nelson one of the men went to him and  laid the case before him. The Premier  said that it was all wrong and that he  would see that a new clerk was put in  charge. He was as good as his word, and  last Tuesday Mr. E. Bragg was installed  as clerk of the works.  Mr. Bragg states that the building will  probably, not be completed by contract  time, Dec 1, but will be finished by the  first of the year. The superstructure is  nearly up. and if it were not for the high  board fence that is to enclose it the building would make a very presentable, appearance. There will be thirty odd cells  in the. building, and those for, the men  will be built in the center of the main  building, with a corrider around all, so  that the gaoler may at all times see whatever is going on at1 a glance.

"I _do and I am tremendously  pleased with Nelson," replied Sir William. "The handsome class of buildings  are the most striking feature and I hope  that everybody in Nelson will do all in  their power to secure a continuance of a  good class of buildings. The cost is very  little more and if a competent architect is  employed the cost will be no more. Good  business and dwelling houses result in  the greatest possible advantage to the  city. I am glad to Eee so many bright,  fresh, green door yards. Where vegeta-  tiongrows so luxuriantly there is no excuse for not having attractive premises  surrounding the houses. It is very refreshing to see them and I hope that they  may continue."   ~  Sir William aud party left for Kaslo ou  the 4 o'clock boat and from there will go  to Slocnn points, Nakusp and thence to  the main line, their objective point being  .Vancouver and Victoria. Sir Charles  Tupper expressed himself as being highly  pleased with his trip and with Nelson in  particular. He said that the great  mineral wealth of the district insured its  future prosperity and he looked for the  day, when,, with development, the  -Kootenay would be the greatest mining  center in the world. .The townsite of  Nelson, he said, was admirably situated  for a great city and the completion of the  Crow's Nest road would give it a supremacy that would forever make it the  capital of the Kootenay. It was bound  in the nature of things, to he the terminus of the road and taken in conjunction with other railroad facilities and the  magniiiceht body of water at its doors,  its future greatness was beyond question.

A  petition is now being circulated in Slocan City asking that-the government  build *a road or trail from Slocan City,  down the river to Lemon creek and up  that creek to the point named.

The councilmen all agreed that it  would.be to the best interests of the city  to have this department under its control,  the same as the coast cities. Under this  order the city would collect the per capita  tax ard hire and direct its own teachers.

On the 7th day of the present  month the wages duo to the men should  have been paid. JTbe money for this  purpose, amounting to $1,802.70,. came  to hand on the preceding day and Ryan,  the contractor, in company , with Mr.  McMullen, the foreman o/tiie Porto  Rico mine, left Ymir that day with the  packet containing the sum on his,person.  ,:Ryanplaced the money in the breast of  his shirt and retired for the night. At  5:45 next morning he raised "an alarm  and was found in a great state .of agitation. He said that. a mau had come to  his camp, fla-hihg a light in his face,  had covered him with a revolver and  ordered him to give up the money, and  on his refusing, had torn open his shirt  and taken it from .him. Ryan being  responsible for the mens' wages, he was  arrested at the "instance of Jamea'Mist-  (fiirth, ono of the sub-contractors on the  road, and brought before Justice Buck-  worth in Ymir.. No evidence being forthcoming against .him, however, he was  released on $100 bail.

Until last Monday there was considerable complaint among the workmen employed on the provincial gaol building in  Nelson and one of them aired his grievance in the last issue of the Province. He  said: .  ' Upon the recommendation' of the  mayor, a resolution was passed that a  12-inch pipe be substituted for.the8 inch  pipe in the lateral sewers on Baker street  from Josephine to Ward and from Stanley  to Ward, in order that the storm water  may be properly cared for.'

Mr. Justice Drake this week dismissed  the. motion'^-for a non-suit iu the case of  Mobro vs. the Hall Miues and ordered  tiiat judgement.'be.entered according to  the verdict which was for ������1000 damages  to the plaintiff. .    -   -  The motion of defendant for'a non-suit  was upon the-ground that the notice of  action had not been given by plaintiff  within the statutory time; viz., within 12  weeks'after the injury. .Mr. Justice  Drake found that subsection 5 of the  employers liability act of 1891, "enacts  that the want or insufficiency of the  notice required by that .section or by  section 9 shall not be a bar to the maintenance of the action of tho court before  whom the action is brought is of opinion  tbat there was reasonable excuse for the  want, or insufficiency of the notice and  thattthe defendant has not thereby been  prejudiced in his defence. This is a  limitation on the strictness'required by  section 9 and -on the facts existing here,  I am clearly of opinion that there was no  excuse for not giving the notice in time.

A woman on the ^International from  Kaslo, last Tuesday, created a sensation,  by failing to wake up when' called. She  bad taken a stateroom the night before,  and wheii called at 8 a. m. on the following morningshe seemed to be under the  .influenceof some-drug.���������The-conclusion  was immediately jumped at that the woman had taken an overdose of morphine  or cocaine with suicidal intent and amateur physicians.and. surgeons developed  numerously. Mustard plasters, etc.,  were freely applied but they failed to  revive the sufferer. When thc boat arrived in Nelson Dr. La Ban took the patient " in charge and speedily, had her  beyond the danger line. .He said she  wns suffering from a"form of hysteria..  The".'name of the young lady is Miss  Maggie Tweedy, a waitress in the Bon  Ton restaurant and she is said to be  subject to fits of this- kind." At one time  in Basin ,City, Montana,' she became  insensible whilo on the streets and laid  in a heavy sleep for five days before she  could be aroused. On another occasion  sho slept steadily for five days. J\Then  she awoke from her.fifty hour sleep last  Wednesday evening she appeared to" be  somewhat daz?d but, was suffering !no  pain. The last thing she remembered  was eating her. dinner ou~ the International on*Monday evening. She had  taken no anesthetic of any kind.

In the recent convention of thc New  Party held at New Westminster,  Kootenay was not represented. That  probably was her own fault. Kootenay is extremely, busy with her  particular occupation of mining and  New''Westminster is a long way off.  Before sending a delegate to the convention it would have been necessary  to hold some preliminary meeting here  to appoint a delegate and to agree  upon some line of future action which  he should either inaugurate himself or  follow on the lead of others. Busy  men care little for politics and nil our  o  good men are extremely busy. It is  owing to this cause that nothing was  was done.  The people of the rest of British  Columbia must not, however, suppose  that we are apathetic, that we care  not how or by whom we are governed.  The fact is that we do care a very  great deal. . Legislation is of vital  importance to us. Mining matters  are sure to occupy largely the attention of all British Columbian parliaments and in Kootenay are the chief  centers of mining activity. It would  not lie. inappropriate if the member  from Kootenay took thc lead not only  at the convention but in the House  itself.  it is time however that something  theatre for the discussion   of   international subjects.  A question arose at the New Westminster convention which does not  seem to have been settled. It was  whether Dunsmuir party lines should  \m allowed to influence the choice of  candidates for the Provincial house.  Tliere appears to be no reason why  they should do so. Provincial members can scarcely he called upon to  discuss Lhe questions which divide the  parties at Ottawa. There has been a  tendency of late for the local parliament to make suggestions to the  Federal government, which is a most  improper practice, for it opens the  way to the discussion of subjects at  Victoria with which our provincial  parliament has nothing whatever to  do and the sooner it is stopped the  better.  In one way however it will be almost  impossible to avoid treading on -the  larger party lines. Members of the  British Columbian parliament must be  enemies of monoplies. They must  allow no more to be entered on the  statute hooks, while in thc settlement  of those unfortunately already granted  they must keep before them the  legend "The land for the people."  Now men to do this inust.be liberals,  ,the old conservative party is too much  Wrapped up with monopolies for any  member of it ever to shake off thc  taint of them.  quite able to hold her own against the  rebellious tribesmen, but it is none the  less pleasant to have her trusty sons  going up to do battle by her side, and  it is just as well for the youngsters of  the advantage of seeing actual service  in company with the liest soldiers the  world produces. The present incident  is not an outcome of the recent colonial  mania of the puhilec. The same  colonics assisted, it will be remembered  in Egypt in 1882. Many other offers  were made but only these two  accepted. Canada of course stands  alone as the chief detached part of the  empire while to New South Wales is  generally conceded the honor of being  the representative colony of Australasia.  PKOrESSMMAl CABM..  INTERNATIONAL   JOURNALISM.  was done in the way of choosing some  one to represent Kootenay in the  independent party of reform. Men  must remember that however much  their time is occupied by their own  affairs they still- owe something to  'their country, besides it is not at all  improbable that they may be able to  guide legislation into better channels  for the promotion of milling, which is  at once their own business and that of  every man, woman and child in  Kootenay. This last statement may  appear at first to be inaccurate, but  take away the mines and what have  you left? The whole population  would vanish like the. mists of morning  before the rising sun. This fact should  not he forgot ton. Theie are 20,000,  possibly more, people in West Kootenay and every meal they eat and  every dollar in their pockets conies in  some way or other from. Kootcnay's  mining interests.  It would be premature perhaps to  discuss the merits of the several  genltemen who .naturally seem to be  fitted to-represent us in Parliament.  The choice should be made hy public  meeting convened irom all the towns  and it is tb be hoped that all the. petty  local jealousies will be dropped for the.  occasion. In order to bring about  such a desirable result some town  should - be' chosen for the meeting  which-has no interests to serve and  which can scarcely be expected to  supply a candidate. Robson is just  such a place. - Its inhabitants at  present are very few and it does not  yet clash with Nelson or Rosslaial or  Kaslo. It is fairly central and is  admirably suited for the purpose. In  Australia the little old world colony of  Tasmania is generally selected as the  locality of intercolonial meetings,  while in Europe, Switzerland ,s  generally looked upon as the proper  The recent meeting of the Institute  of Journalists of England, held at  Cardiff in Wales, was attended by two  Canadian journalists of note, Major  Maclean of Montreal, president of the  Canadian Press Association and Mr.  Willison, editor of the Toronto Globe.  These gentlemen urged their hosts to  follow the lead of the British Association and hold their next meeting in  Canada. Ib is to be hoped that the  suggestion, will be acted on. It is  possible then. that the notices of  Canadian matters "edited" in England  may lose their comical inaccuracies,  but make up for them by the correct-,  ness that comes from personal  acquaintance. We as British Columbians are of course proud when the  Klondyke gold field is described as  a part of our own golden province (as  it ought to be) but we should feel  annoyed if Kootenav was mixed up  with the Rainey river, and ascribed to  Ontario. Things Canadian would  receive more frequent and reliable  notice, if the journalists of England  were conversant with the country  itself.  While    seeking    to    improve    the  English press, we must not forget our  whieir  Heretofore-every winter there has  been great anxiety about the freezing  up of our waterways, Until last year  in fact no effort was made to keep the  Arrow lake route open, nnd the outlet  from Nelson to Balfour was only made  navigable by a combination of mild  winters and diligent ice cutting, The  Slocan river line, now almost completed, dismisses all apprehension on  this score. ProDably no effort will be  made to keep the Arrow lakes open,  as by means of the new line the C.P.R.  has a route to Nelson and Rossland  unaffected by ice, while the ore from  Kaslo will only require , an open  channel as far as Five Mile Point and  even if that be closeed it can, without  much extra cost be all sent out the  other way.  The Methodists of Nelson are adding  largely to the appearance of Silica street  and the town generally by the enlargement of their church. The site occupied  is a prominent one find the church stands  up well in view. Tbe church of England  at present occupies an unpretentious  building in. the same street which might  be a school or anything else, but the  congregation has deeided to build itself a  church worthy of the name. Building  orations however have been wisely  deferred until the spring because it is  somewhat late in the year for the erection  of brick and stone work and the interval  will enable .the managers to collect the  various sums that have been promised  and so not to enter upon a considerable  expenditure until they have cosh on hand  to meet it.

Waring sold her ojd  ���������home'in Virginia nnd went to New York  to live, 6ho frankly confessed thnt it was  for tho solcpurposo of giving lier daughters the advantages of social lifo, and the  opportunity to marry well.  . Frankness' scorned ono of Mrs. Col.  Waring's crowning charms. Hcr'poverty,  tho boiiiity of her (laughters, her .motherly anxiety and ambition for thoir future,  woro nil carefully ncknowlcdgod; but dis-.  cr'oriou went hand, in- hand with this  candor.' Tlio lady was shrewd enough to  knoiV perfectly well when and with whom  to talk so freely. 'Her audiences woro  carefully selectod. Men wero apt to pity  and admiro hor, but. a few' Ill-natured  women had declared her to bo a deliberate and selfish schemer. However, Mrs.  Col. Waring suffered littlo from theso  scurrilous attacks.  She was a small, slightly-built woman,  with a thin face, queor gray ' eyes'' and-  dark hair "tinged silvery on* tho temples.  Sho dressed plainly and always' very  markedly as a widow, but woro some  handsome rings on her slender hands. No  ono ever observed Mrs. Col. Waring without also observing the old-fashioned cluster diamond on her forefinger. It seemed  to assist largely in tho perfection of her  plans. When occupied with somo knotty  problem sho would .turn ��������� and twist it  around on her finger incessantly. As for.  the colonel, he had fought gallantly for  the .confederacy, and, finally lost his life  in its service. People, who ��������� knew the  family well had liked him rather better  than his wife. He had been a handsome,:  robust man, as healthy in mind as in  body, a truly candid soul without any  pretense or make believe. -The. daughter,  inherited his beauty, and they might have  resembled him more in spirit had he lived  to train, and influence ,them. But they  knew the pinch of-poverty and felt it all  the. more because their mother-.chafed  under it so sorely. - Her high estimate of  money and position had its influence with  them, and.tho two eldest daughters married according tq. her wishes. They had  the opportunity,, for tho Warings were remotely connected with' a moderately well-  to-do and very aristocratic family���������according .to the New York standard of aristocracy���������while Tom Waring, who bad made  and lost two : or three fortunes on the  stock exchange, rendered valuable service  in bringing some of his moneyed friends  to tho house. . So her sisters married, and  then it.was Barbara's turn.   ..  For her, Mrs.; Waring had made her  most ambitious *, plans.., Sho was undoubtedly more > attractive than either of  her. sisters, although , they .were much  handsomer. Sho was charming but not  eager to please, therefore men were anxious to please her, and then-she possessed  a decided "stylo'.' to which she as well as  her mother attached decided value. -. She  listened tp her mother's worldly counsel  with a ready acceptance of its wisdom.and  a cool impartial appreciation of her'gifts  and .-what was due her family pride. It  would be an exceptional man indeed who  could win-her. ��������� Her marriage should be  a - triumph beforo - wli ich alb tho" Waring  marriages would pale into utter insignificance. Sho desired money, the prestige of  a fine old name, and a brilliant mind.  Sho would neither marry a rich'fool nor  a poor genius. Sho read.the .-history of  famous andfascinatingwomen,pored over  accounts of the French seasons and wished  that she could have ono of her.own. Her  lip curled with disdain' "at tho thought of  contenting herself with the frivolous pastimes of a mere"society woman. It was  her vaguely outlined plan to draw about  her tho highest and best in 'all the arts  -and professions, to become a patron .of  genius and be noted for her brilliant  gatherings as well as tho perfection of her  gewns. Lovo had not oven been considered. - Indeed it rather pleased her to think  that she couldn't lovo very deeply, that  .her -head, her well poised,_j������rtlstlcaily_  "dressed head~would~ always govern her.  ''A" littlo unwomanly" Tom Waring  would say to himself when his thoughts  wandered in- heir direction.' "Not very  deep cither I fancy, but taking���������immensely taking." '���������'   " '!  Waring was a stout, florid bachelor who  had been through au" endless' number of  love affairs and who still retained his  chivalroiis admiration "for women... Ho  hnd taken tho protty Waring girls under  a semi-paternal wing and felt it his duty  to administer many solemn warnings on  worldly ambition. But as he Invariably  delivered .those warnings after dining  freely -he- only ��������� provoked laughter aud  affectionate raillery. Barbara exasperated him very much.  "A fellow might kill himsolf for you,  and I don't believe 'you'd know enough  to care a bawbee!" ho exclaimed, ouo  .evening.  Sho leaned her head lazily against tlie  back of her chair.  "Ah! well, perhaps not so bad as  that," sho- said, ,nonchalantly. "But a  man who would do suoh a decidedly imbecile thing .1). hardly worth pitying,  don't you thiuk so?" -<  "IJwonder," said Waring, looking  quizzically at her, "I wonder if you are  not posing. It is your ovident desire to  appear very flinty, and you play your part  well���������very well. But I'm sorry. I wish  girls would be moro simple and natural."  His earncsness amused her.  "I think it would bo very tedious to  have to keep up a pose before you, Cousin  Tom, one of my own family���������tedious and  unprofitable. Girls.nrc natural, - only  they are not all-- angels, but ��������� human  beings, like thc rest of tho^ world. If I  can't fall madly in love or don!t want to,  what's the difference? 1 think the people  in love .arc about tho most - wretched  creatures I know, always swinging between heaven and hell."  "You've been well trained. Miss Waring. A fish would be more warm-blooded  compared.to you."  Barbara refused to be piqued.  .'  "Mamma is admirable, but I have a  reason of xny own whicli occasionally is  able to assert itself."  "Your reason be hanged!" cried Waring, rising from bis' seat in a passionl'  "It doesn't'scem to prevent you from accepting all the adoration that is offered  you." c  "You positively crow rude, Cousin  Tom. Don't you think it would be wise  for you to go homo and sleep off your ill  temper?"  "I beg your pardon, Barbara. I have  to let myself out occasionally, you know.  But- what has reason to do with love-  genuine true-hearted love, you know?"  Barbara's eyes glinted.  "I don't see why it shouldn't have a  great deal to do with it, and think' If it  did thsre'd be fewer. unhapfey pod������le Id  the world���������fewer divorces oven." There  is no reason' whatever for people throwing common sens* to the wind simply because they fall in'lovo, For my" part���������"  **-; VBy jovo! Barbara you arc stunning,  ��������� really." - I'd like to possess a little of your  coolness' when stocks are going down nnd  ' the" market smashes. Your sorenity is  worth a fortune."  Barbara passed through three seasons  and received a number of offers of mar-  liagc. They wero nil rejected, however.  She had not yet found what she wanted.  "And you uovor will, my dear Barbara,  depend upon it You'll cither marry  some poor devil, or die an old maid," said  tho irrepressible Tom, who - watched her  social career with unabated interest.  Barbara involuntarily stole.a glance at  herself In n mirror.  - "Oh, you aro not losing your attractiveness, I must admit. You wear marvel-  ously well. " His voice sank to a suggestion of tendornoss. "You- could bo a  matchless woman if you had a heart. "   -  " A very necessary portion of one's anatomy, I should say.   I hope I have one."  "A tireless machine, to propel your  blood, tlmt is all���������not capable of much  feeling."  "It loves you," sho said, with a sudden  bewitchingly soft smile. That was one  of-the fascinating things about Barbara  ���������the little glimpses of womanliness occasionally peeping tantalizingly through  her colorless langour.  "Oh, come, now, none of your artful  coquetries on me!' he exclaimed, flushing and stroking his gray mustache.  "Then you must stop harking back to  that old theme.

"I really.never gave the matter a  thought," she said, then suddenly broke  through again and laughed' a gay, delightful laugh. ' 'How you' do overflow  with sentiment. You must have beeu in  love a score of times."  ."I have."  "And your heart?  I suppose it U in a  - very fragmentary condition?"  ��������� "On the contrary, it has been enriched  by;every experience,"   he  replied,  -with  dignity.   "My first love ��������� affair occurred  ' when I was only twelve years old.   What  'an,experience!   What profound emotion  thrilled my soul !*''  . He sighed deeply, throwing his head  back and gazing retrospectively at the  celling.  ���������: "And when did the' last affair end?"  . Barbara inquired casually.- ,  .'-' Waring came out of his sentimental reverie with a slightly disconcerted air.  ..."Oh���������ah, it hasn't ended."  "Indeed!"  -- "Yes, she is the dearest little woman ia  the world."   ���������  '.'How interesting! Why don't you  marry her?" '  "Sho���������ah, is already, married. It is a  purely platonlc sentiment between us, I  assure you, Barbara. She Is neglected and  "I..pity her. I shall never marry."  ' Just then Mrs. -Waring's niece broke into the conversation. She had all the while  been seated near the window. - -y ...  Y- "Tom, Tom, why do you talk such nonsense? Of course you will marry. There  Is a Divinity that shapes our ends."  "A peroxide of hydrogenod ono will  probably shape his," Barbara remarked  from tho cabinet 1manteL where sho was  now standing rearranging her hair.  .

"That champagne must havo been  extra dry, suro onough. "  At the last moment ho discovered somo  letters on the table.' He .turned them  over carelessly, .while humming a popular  air. A foreign postmark attracted his  eye, and ho opened that letter, pushing  the others aside to be rend tt a more convenient time. It was from an old acquaintance traveling abroad.  . "And now, Waring, I come to tho re/U  point of this discourse. My son is on his  vray to America. Ho hus foolishly entangled himself in a lovo affair with u  young wldoW over here"; and I -am anxious to break off the whole matter.

Pleaso  do not let him know that I have prepared  you for his visit, lam quite recovered  from the most serious of my ailments.  Ever your friend,        o     James Noel."  For a moment-Waring struggled with  his befogged memory trying to place  James Noel. -  "Oh, yes; oh, yes," he said finally, "I  k'now who it is now. James Noel went  abroad with his family years ago,'and his  daughter married a prince or something of  that kind. Why, of course, awfully sick  man, Jim Noel. Didn't suppose he'd bo  alive a month after he left America. Why,  I knew the Noels beforo the war���������fine old  family, and Jim mado money till yon  couldn't rest.   Perfect loads of it."  He mused ovor the' letter nnd the responsibility thrust upon him for a moment.    Then a brilliant idea struck him.  "I'll introduce him to Barbara���������that's  the thing", the very thing.- If he's not  hopeless she'll cure him. Yes, I'll introduce him to Barbara."  He winked at himself in the mirror, and  gathered up his hat and gloves. At the*  same instant a servant appeared at tho  door with a card.  Waring took it and gave vent to a prolonged whistle, but in a moment he remembered himself through the haze of  his astonishment. u  "Show the gentleman up,  show him  up," he said,quickly. - '.'Now, I must be  careful what I say; funny that he should  call the very day I get tho letter.

"Knew  your fathor very well; I ought to say cx-  : tremely well.   I'm happy to wclcomo'you  to America; very happy indeed to welcome  you to America."  "You are kiud, Mr. Waring," said Noel.

"Ho always spoko of you in tho warmest  tones, sir," said thc young man. seriously. He did not appear an entirely spoiled  or wilful youth. IIo was older than  Waring had expected, judging from his  father's letter, and even through tho simple candor of his manner one might havo  ^03ii a .suggestion of satisfactory reserve  force and self-reliance. Waring insisted  upon taking liim to the theatre, and  learned during the drivo  tliat Noel had  V FOREIGN POSTMARK  ATTRACTED HIS EYE.  studied art abroad, and that ho expected  to set up a studio in Now York. Ho did  not speak of his family, and Waring tactfully refrained from making inquiries.  He introduced the young man to his relatives and managed during tho evening to  whisper into Mrs. Col. Waring's ear some  Information aboj.it his aristocratic family,  and his father's wealth, enlarging especially upon the princess. Mrs. Col. Waring absorbed all these details as a hungry  flsh docs water after being out on dry  land. ���������-   '  "He's.very ambitious, too. Works, you  know, for tho love of it. Will suit Bar-  barn to a T," Waring added, as sho smiled  blandly upon the young man.  But when he had slept off tho offocts of  the dinner ho had almost forgotten  Nool's existence Somo. mining investment called him away to the west and he  left at a day's.'.notice, merely writing a  line of farewell to Mrs. Waring and her  daughtor. , ���������_  CHAPTER II.  Jasper Noel did suit Barbara exactly,  even more perfectly than sho had ever  fancied nny man could. He was ��������� frank  and simple of manner and open of speech,  but had a strong will, and Barbara loved  a strong will. - Then ho nlso lsad that generosity which is apt to accompany the artistic temperament. His admiration'' for  women was of thc idealistic sort, tenderly  chivalrous -and revorential. Barbara  laughed to-herself over his unworldly  faith, whilo tho sensation of tears stung  her eyes. She saw that liis worldly experience had not been- excessively broad or  else that he had passed along with eyes  closed to tho selfishness and folly of her  set. Ho painted well, surprisingly well  for a youug man of such great expectations, and devoted himself assiduously  to work. That. also appealed to 'her.  "He will-be great as well as rich, and he  is so lovable, so lovablo," she acknowledged lo herself.  Sho had always expected to be interested  in the personality of the man she married,  but not to the extent that Noel absorbed  her. It was almost alarming. l,"I think  I love him; yes, I'm sure I lovo him. "  She rested her chin on her hands and  mused awhile. - Why should her--heart  beat so fast and every time sho recall  "cdV tender "glanco"or���������i^wliiiTperod-word  of his? Ho never had'inado lovo to her as  -other men, why should she blush and palpitate? "Well, positively, this is thc first  real mystery I ever camo across in my life.  I  feel so  different,   so  very   different.'  She began walking the floor of her little  room with a restlessness that would have  astonished Mrs. Waring could that lady  havo been a spectator. "Yet thoy say  --that's always thc. way," she continued  musing to herself. "One reads about it  until one is weary and yet ono is drawn  on just tho same, and it is always new."  - The deep disquiet of hor soul bewildered her. Thore were somo trinkets on her  .bureau and she arranged and rearranged  these, scanning thc effect each time as  though tlio result were a matter of grave  moment. But her-thoughts were all the  while busy, with otlier things., Finally  obeying an impulse she put on her best  walking gown aud set forth for Noel's,  studio, but this'wns the first time she"  had ever gone alono, and sho wondered  now what her  mothor  would suy.   But  turcsqucness of tho child was not entirely  lost upon lier. ������������������  "Sho is very good," sho agreed, absently, and now tliat sho stood in his presence  wished that she had not como. "Please  go on with' your work,'' sho begged after  a moment. ' "I shall feel sorry- if you  don't,'~nnd talk to mo about your model. -  Whoro did you find her?"  ."On tho street. Do sit here on this-  chair whero I can seo yon, too, if I am to  work whilo you aro here. "   ���������  But she was too restless, uneasy over  tho boldness of hor visit, to sit down. She  continiied to walk' around looking a������  sketches and odds and ends of drawing. ���������  Noel's oyes followed nil her movements  nnd his interest In his work 'flagged.  When Barbara saw tho littlo model stealing softly away, somo shining coins in  her dirty littlo hand, she felt that sho too  must go.  "Not just this moment." ho pleaded,  putting out his hand.  "But 1 only camo in for a moment. I  havo some shopping���������an appointment���������"  she stammered, blushing and confused.  Then she looked up at him as they stood  facing each other, and ho took one of hor  hands betweeu both of his.  "Is it true, Barbara?"  "Is what true?"  "I lovo. you, lovo you so, do you lovo  mo a little? I���������I scum to read it in your  eyes.''  "Oh, you must let me go," sho breathed, suffering an inlous������r fright over hor  own emotion than over tho impropriety  of tho situation, standing thero alono  with him in his studio.  "Yes] this instant, sweetheart; but I'm  coming this evening to see yon."  "Yes, come." sho faltered, as sho vanished through the doorway and flod downstairs.  Thc engagement was publicly announced in a fow days. Mrs. Col. Waring  -believed in letting the world appreciate  her triumphs. Slie confided thc story 1 f  Noei's wealth and high connection to two  or ihivo gossipy friends, and tho poor  princess figured largely in the  story, too.  Littlo notices crept into tho papers and  Barbara was envied as well as admired.  Noel was too blissfully happy to> heed  anything outsido of his sweetheart and his  pictures. He had beon accepted, and  discriminating critics had given thom  high praise. It .was about this timo that  Tom Warring returned from California.  A lucky financial-deal had added considerably to liis fortune, and ho was gay accordingly; yet his smile grewn trifle grim  when told of Barbara's engagement. "I  ���������thought she'd make him forget tho othor  woman, but I'm afraid nion arc faithless  creatures anyway. I'm true as- anybody  to love, but not to its personification.  I thought, I had left -my heart safely iu  Now York, and now I belicvo it's in Mexico. Stunning creature I met down  thore!" But sentimental regrets could  not cloud Mr. Waring's "satisfaction in his  financial success. He beamed upon the  world like a full-risen sun and returned  thanks for his good fortune in liberal donations to favorite charities and a diamond pin to Barbiim. ���������  *     - '  .  It was two days after his return that hu  received"another foreign letter, and hero-  cognized James Noel's handwriting before lie broke the seal.

Twenty minutes later ho rushed int������  Mrs. Waring's apartment, broathless, turbulent, tho open letter still in his hand.  Tlie drawing-room was freo ofovlsitors.  Mrs. Col. Waring reclined by tho open  fire absorbed In a book, while half way  down tho room Barbara sat radiant, "talking with Noel. Waring felt like spring  ing upon the young villain for holding  tho girl's hand, but rostrnlnol himself,  because such a course would be unwise  as well as . lacking in dignity. Still hii  anger increased with every stride he tooK-  forward into -tlio .room. Mrs. Waring  sprang nimbly to her feet.  "Good heavens 1 Tom, what's tho matter?"  "Thc devil's to pay." he cried  fiercely.'  "That man is a���������a���������tho Lord only know.J  what,", his voico failing -him, "one finger '  pointed at. Noel.  "What is   the   matter?"   inquired   tho.  young man, also rising.  "Maiter. sir, matter, you ask mc tho  "matter? Bead tlmt and you'll find out.  6li, it'shows you up well," thrusting the  letter into his hand. Mrs. Waring look-  ednon in disgust, disquieted and yet firm.  Noel read the   letter _hastily,   his  faco;  clearing.    He-remembered   Waring as ho  had first seen him and thought   he   comprehended thc situation.  "You arc a little excited now," he said  pleasantly, even amusedly. "I think you  must have missed part of this letter. It  explains the situation 'pretty well, ahd���������  and���������" hu broke into a hearty laugh. "I  feel very much as though I had stepped  out of a pink-bound story book. He has  mistaken my identity, Barbara., he has  mistaken it quito seriously."  Thero was a twinkle in his eye, but ho  noted with surprise that .Barbara's faco  wore an expression of puzzled anxiety.  Waring began reading- tho letter aloud.  "By the way"���������he read beginning whero  he had left-off��������� "my nephew, Allen's son.  writos me that ho has settled in New  York and knows you as well-as some of  your relatives.

Twilight seemed to turu suddenly black,  nud even Mrs. Waring shivered slightly  and drew hor black laco scarf more closely about her.  "That fire is dying down, I must ring  for coal," she remarked.

Soldon shrugged'hls shoulders In  answer to his wifo's appeal, and sank into  a deathly calm ; Travers was hearty, happy  arid intolerable .is usual.  Mrs. Soldon, having grasped her husband's condition,' became hysterically  -talkative and rather familiar. Seldon  could not look Travers in the eye.but asked him hoarsely if ho would like some hot  water! Whilst Travers was washing his  hands���������which 'always required washing"  and nover s emed any the better for it���������  Scldoii had'tlinoto'whispor to his wife:  "This is delightful!

'���������I shall seo you through some nice lies  to-day, and���������Jove how i shall Tovel in  them!" he said.  The extra place at table had boen laid in  a moment. Tho introduction was accomplished, and they all  went   into   nine!   two of the party  with  light   hearts   an l  good appeli.es, the other two stricken.  The lunch was not a success. Mrs. iel-  don got th ��������� blood to her head, continued  lo talk far too much, and even used some  of her husband's old slang.

Having arrived at this conclusion,every  moment of delay added two degrees to his  temperature. If, by some evil chance,  Travers should havo to leave early, ho was  lost, hut In this fate was kind. ' At tho  ond of tho lunch Travers embarked on a  long story which every ono knew, and sipped his coffee with expansive enjoyment.

The committee is to repoit October 25th.  A little scrap of paper from Edgar  Lemon, calling for $17 for a water pipe  lonnection was the cause of a warm  I'rgiunent at the council meeting lost  Monday. Alderman Teetzel said that  J.e thought it should he paid as Lemon  Ivas paying water rates to the city.  Mayor Houston said that there was no  fense in paying the account as Mr.  Lemon had been told' that the city  would only pay for connections after  fhe new pipe had been laid. Alderman  llillyer entered the field of argument  Igajnst him and thought the bill  Ihbiild be paid. The mayor became  lloquent and said, that there was just  I& much sense in allowing money to  |lie hospital for the pipe it had laid.  Uderman Hillyer said the cases were  liot parallel as the hospital paid no  Ivater rates and Mr. Lemon did. The  Inayor said it was i-only a matter of  l'pinion and he was opposed to it.

One couple who give the lie to the old  adage about marrying in haste and repenting at leisure are George Robers  and wife of Buffalo, N. 1*. These young  people had not known one another an  hour before they decided to get married.  The story of their romance is told by W.  S. Walker, a traveling man of Topeka.  "In May, 1888, Robers and I were  clerks in n real estate oflice in Detroit,"  said Mr. Walker. "One Saturday afternoon we were sitting in the office talking  witb the other clerks when a woman book  agent came in. She was pretty and cheerful, and Robers being a great joker,  immediately began talking .with her.  They'were both full of fun, and finally  she asked him to buy a book. He said  that he couldn't and after a few moments  ot laughing and talk, she told him that  he ought to buy it for his wife.  " Tm not married, because I can't find  a girl who will marry me,' he said.. "  "'Well,' she replied, 'I have been  searching the world over for a man who  will marry me.'  "He made the statement that he would  marry her, and she said, 'all right.' I  was young and inexperienced then, and I  dared them to get married. They both  said they never took a dare, and so  Robers got his hat and the three of us  went over to the marriage license clerk.  You see,. neither knew tbe other's name  and I was positive tbat one or the other  would back ont when it came to the point  ot issuing the license. But they were  game as tbe saying goes. It was not  until they gave their names did they  know each other. I know that thiB all  sounds like a fairy tale, but it is a fact.  Atter they got their license they crossed  the street to a justice of the peace and  were married. That is a.world's record,  I believe. They met and were married  inside of an hour. I have,seen them  nowJand~then_since7iandTJLknow" that  they are as happy .as though they had  courted for a dozen years.  ' "Mrs. Sobers has presented her husband with two children since their marriage���������a boy and a girl���������and I know you  couldn't find a, father and mother take  more interest in their children than they  do." ��������� * ��������� ,   ���������-��������� ^  Rediscovery nt the Void Workings or the  Ancient* lu Asia Minor.  Gold was probably the first hietal  observed .and collected, because of the  instinctive understanding of its intrinsic value. About it superstitions grew,  religious and cerimonious rites, and  strange crimes were committed for its  possession in the days when it was  believed that ib was of such stutf that  the sun itself was made and thc halls  of Valhalla paved. Rock paintings  and carvings in Egyptian tombs  earlier than the days of Joseph indicate the, washing of auriferous sand,  and a subesequcnt melting in furnaces  by the aid of blow-pipes.  Less than 20 years ago the old mines  of Nubia, so graphically described by  Diodorus, were rediscovered on the  shores of the Red sea,, together with a  line of ancient wells across the desert;  tho underground workings where ore  veins had been followed with thepick  the rude cupelling furnaces for assaying, picks, oil lamps, stone mills, inor-  tors and pestles, inclined washing  tables -. of stone, cruicables and retorting furnaces of burned tile, by which  the entire process could be traced;  Here slaves and hapless prisoners of  war exchanged their life blood for  glittering dust to till the treasuries of  their captors. In India and Asia Minor  the. powdered ore was washed ddwn  over smooth, sloping rocks, and the  gold caught in the fleeces of sheepskins  sunk in the stream. It was literally a  golden fleece that Jason brought back  from the Caucasus.  Further north, and following the  Eastern foothills of Mount Ararat to  the southern slopes of the Ural mountains in Russian Siberia, where last  year millions were taken out of the  gold' mines, the ancient Scythians  broke up rock and gravel with copper  implements, scraped out the glittering  dust and nuggets, with the fangs of  wild boars, and carried there gain  away'in bags of leather. All through  this region miners of to-day know that  one of the chief dangers to be avoided  are the Scythian pits, 00 feet deep in  the gravel, andi shaped like a well.  The remains of thousands of small furnaces of burned clay testify to the long  period over which the workings of the  mines extended.���������Modern Machinery,  T. G.

A curious incident characteristic of  the proverbial conservatism of the  Chinese occurred when the first cable  was laid along the coast from Pekin to  Shanghai. Soon after it was laid a  lottery drawing came off in Pekin, in  which many, of the residents of Shanghai held tickets. One of the gamblers  so far overcame his distrust of the  cable as to have the winning numbers  sent hin^ and he bought the tickets  bearing them from his more skeptical  townsmen, realizing a small fortune  on the transaction. At about the  same time thero jyas a scanty rice crop  in the upper provinces, and a Shanghai  merchant telegraphed to Pekin instructions to buy heavily, the ultimate  result being that he sold out at.an  immense profit and retired in opulence.  After two or three practical lessons of  _this_natureJ.the_Chinese-came-to-the  realization of the fact that the telegraph is a good thing to have around.  . D iMouuiit  IN THE  Scavenger Business.

Field of $5,008.32  was not reported favorably and some  warm talk upon the subject followed.  The work that bad been done on tbe  mine was ''fully discussed, and Manager  Field produced maps and drawings illustrating the work he had superintended.  By this showing, the development work  on the property has failed thus far to  show any body of ore sufficiently large  to pay to ship, although the character of  the rock indicates tbe probable proximity  of an ore body. Mr. Field stated that he  was at a loss as to how to proceed, all his  efforts to find the vein having proved  ; futile. At any rate, he stated, it was impossible to proceed further at this time,  as the company has no cash. He said  that the expenditure of a small sum  \ might develop a great property, but on  the other hand, a large amount of money  ! might be spent without result.  It was finally decided to appoint a com-  j mittee to consider the advisability of se-  I curing the services of a competent person  to examine the mine and report its con-  0 The Halted State* Navy.  The Count Moltke has just finished  a term of volunteer service as lieutenant in the French navy, and ns he has  just came from Yokohama, I asked  him for his .impression of Japenese  feeling toward the United States. He  scouted as impossible the idea that the  Japs could enter any serious objection  to the annexation' of the Hawaiian  islands, and said that public feeling in  Japan, at least in Yokohama, was  not at ������all aroused over the question.  The two protests filed at Washington  were regarded as purely diplomatic.  While it was true that the Japanese  martial blood had been stirred by its  victory over China, the instinct of the  nation was too commercial to thirst  for war, and there was a great desire  to increase trade relations with the  United States to increase its navy,  especially in the Pacific, where the  strength of Japan is greatly superior  to ours. "  Air la lamps.  "Compressing air until it would  remain compressed without any pressure upon it" are the few words with  which, a writer in the Electrical Engineer" describes the new product,  "aerine," or liquified "air, remarking  that, though requiring an'enormous  pressure to get it in such a form, it  would remain there for some time in  the open air; that is, until it gets heat  enough from the surrounding air to  turn again into its natural state. It  will turn mercury into a solid form as  soon as it is poured into it. and freeze  up a thermometer .rapidly. Such is  the prospective usefulness of this liquid  that predictions are made of distant  water powers now running to waste  being soon employed compressing the  very air we breathe into a liquid form  and shipping it to all parts ofthe globe  for industrial purposes.  \\  OHURCH   NOTICES.

Tho Irene,, on Toad mountain, has  widened from 25 inches to three foot of  solid quartz showing considerable tree  gold. It is looked upon as one of the  most promising free gold properties on  the mountain.  The Golden Star on Toad mountain,  an. extension of the Starlight is showing up well under development.  Specimens brought into Nelson show-  considerable native copper, whicli is  unusual with the ores of this district.  The Athabasca mine will probably  make another shipment to thc smelter ou  Monday. The Inat one of 31 tons gave a  return of $108 per (on. A steam hoist is  to be put up at the mine immediately  and tbe wagon road is to be extended to  the main road. The winze upon which  the men were working was sunk to a  depth ot 100 feet and then the men were  driven out by bud air and water.  The telluride find, by the "Itade brotli-  'ers, on Gainer creek, it is reported, has  been bonded but the conditions of the  bond are a secret. The only detail 1; nown  is tbat tbe bond will run out on October  22. It is believed that the bond is held  by Chicago parties. ;It"is now so late in  the season nothing can be done on the  property before another year. The two  tons of ore thnt were lying at the Kaslo  sampler were sold to the smelting company at Nelson.  On Monday Mr. A. H. Kelly brought  in town the largest and best specimen  of ore ever exhibited here. It weighs  3000 pounds and was placed iri front of  Mr. Kelly's office on Baker street. The  specimen was taken from tho Dandy  mine on Toad mountain and is said to  give an average of $80 in gold, silver  and copper. At different points the  ledge can be traced a distance of 2000  feet and at the present workings ifc is  said to be five feet in width.  A free gold find of importance has been  made at the second north fork of Lemon  creek. ar������d the property is under bond to  the British Canadinn Gold Fields which  has its head office in Nelson. There nre  five claims in the group and. tbe.ore upon  which the find was made is the Golden  Wedge. The owners are Wm., Urascb,  Henry. Smith and J. M. M. Beuedum.  Samples from the claim show much free  gold, in fact so much that an'assay was  considered unnecessary. Mr. Wiii^j,  mining superintendent of the- British  Canadian. Gold Fields states that "the  ledge is a strong one and will run from  18 to 36 inches in width. The ore is free  milling and it is the .intention of .the  company to at once start work on ifc. ,,....  PRODUCE 0E THE MINES.  RETURNS F0141897 UP TOD ATE.  OBE EXI'OIITKD.
