LTelegraphic advices have been received  I'bm Montreal to the effect that President Van Home of the Canadian Pacific  as decided to at once commence the  Instruction of the proposed line of rail-  I ay from Rossland to a point opposite  liobsoiK The work is to be pushed forward as rapidly as possible, lt is stated  (hat all negotiations for the purchase of  Ileinze's railway have failed aud the  Jesuit will be the construction of this  Independent line. The road is not to  allow the river but will but diagonally  Iioross the country and will be as straight  |������ the intervening country will permit.  Mr. E. Marpole, general superintendent ot the C. P. K. went down the river  lo Rossland on Thursday accompanied by  [lis private secretary Mr. Geddes.  Mr. Marpole has opened tho tenders  I'or the Trail creek and Colnmbia river  [���������ailway and-found them very satisfactory.  At Robson Mr. Marpole was met by  IMr. Beasley, superintendent of the Nel-  liou division and Mr. C. E. Perry, engineer, who accompanied him to Rossland  Iwhere Mr. Marpole goes to decide upon  Ithe right of  way  in   tLe  city and the  [station sites.   It is expected that should  ���������these be satisfactorily arranged, tbe work  lot construction will be commenced  at  lonco.  DIED FEOM EXHAUSTION.  I Harry Kd wards  ot Waterloo Meets With  ���������    a ' . .  a Sad Death,  On Monday of last week Harry Edwards, the operator and lineman, at  Waterloo, died from exposure" and exhaustion and hia companion, a man by  the name of McCarger narrowly escaped  ,.the same fate. .YY".  The two men started to row tip the  river from Trail bat when opposite the  smelterj v..mishap occurred which caused,  them both to get. wet to the hips. On  the way up, Edwards stopped to repair  some wires, but was' so exhausted that  McCarger insisted on him going on without completing the job. This Edwards  refused to do, as the line was useless as  it was. After this work, they rowed  again for a short distance, when it became, evident that Edwards1 condition  . was growing serious. They dragged tbe  boats on the beach and started to walk,  but Edwards insisted on sitting down on  _the_rocks. ^McCarger_ knew the danger,  and objected, but Edwards was so far  gone by this time that he lay down, and  was unable to rise. McCarger then  placed a coat under his companion's  head and wrapped him in a blanket, while  he made for the wood camp at Waterloo,  to summon help.  Owing to the storm and darkness the  rescuing party could not Und Edwards  "and went back for McCarger. Returning with the latter they found Edwards  but life was extinct. McCarger's condition is serious.  POSTPONED UNTIL MONDAY.  Xewllraneh ofthe C. r. B. will be ���������pened  That Day.  The excursion to Slocan City in honor  of the opening of the Slocan Lake branch  of tlie C. P. R which was. fixed for Wednesday, December 1, was postponed until next Mondayj- December 6, on account  of the inclemency of the weather. The  celebration by the citizens of Slocan City  was postponed until Monday  and the  I banquet will take place at the Arlington  hotel at 7:30 p. ro.on tbat day. The citizens' committee having the matter of,the  celebration in hand includes A. York,  chairman; J. H. Cavanbh, first vice chairman; J. Cran, second vice chairman; F.  L. Gwillim, secretary-treasurer; R. A.  Bradshaw, R. G. Henderson, F. Butler,  C. M. Woodworth, T. J. E. Scoons, D. R.  Young, C. E. Perry and H. P. Christie.  . The C. P. R. has given half fare m'.ei  for the occasion and tickets will be good  for two days but the train and boats will  be held several hours to enable those who  do uot desire to remain over night, an  'opportunity of returning the same day  and yet having time to witness the celebration.. The train will leave Nelson at  9 a. m. and the running time will be two  hours and 20 minute3.   The route is said  |-to be an especially interesting one and  the outlook is that a large number will  take advantage of the opportunity  ���������offered.  i Boss Meljlenzie Dead.  Mr. Ross McKenzie, auditor of the C.P.  R. for the construction of the Crow's  Nest Pass railroad, died at the Phair hotel  on Monday. Deceased had beenjailing  for some time, having contracted a severe  cold while travelling from McLeod to  Robson. He was well and favorably  known, having travelled a great deal  over the C.P.R. and at one time was  superintendent of the Niagara Falls &  Park, railway, and later on superintendent at Montreal ot the C.P.R. In his  younger days Mr. McKenzie was a noted  lacrosse player. His brother, Mr. A. B.  McKenzie, of Rossland, has taken charge  of the body which will be conveyed to  Toronto for interment.  .   Affection Comes nigh.  Action has been taken against Col.W.  W. D. Turner, president of the Le Roi  Mining Co., for $50,000 for the alienation  of a .wife's, affections. The plaintiff is  Chas. F. Clough, of Spokane.  Custom* House Deport.  The custom house returns for Nelson  for the month ot. November show the  exports to have' been $831,672. There  were 4,418, tons of ore shipped, value  $359,375; 855 tons of matte, value $436,  517. The mines represent $824,370, the  forest $1,832, animals and produce $9,  and manufactures $5,461. The gold  cleared totalled $300,574, copper $88,454,  lead $86,719, and silver $348,675.  The Atlantic Claim.  The Atlantic claim on the north fork of  Salmon river, seven miles north west of  Erie, has been a surprise to its owner.  It was staked as an extension for a certain  gold ledge but when it was thoroughly  prospected another quartz ledge  four feet wide, of. hungry looking iron  pyrites was uncovered. Some work was  done on it ahd an assay taken clear across  the ledge. The return was 2.08 ounces  of gold, valued at $42.99. William Ellis,  the owner, states that the ledge is easily  traced cclenr across the claim and next  spring active development work will be  commenced. -  Showing Up Well.  G. L. Robinson, secretary of the Bright  Prospects Gold Miniug and Development  Co. returned last night from a trip to the  oompany'a property, the Northern Light  Group on.Forty Nine Creek. He brought  in with him some tine samples.ancL.one of,  them shows a quantity of free gold  Otbeyumples seeni^tp .be. blacky oxide  copper and are said to contain large gold  vrfties". The shaft is now down 45 feet  and shows a 5 foot ledge with three feet  of ore. John Dorsey, the president, will  leave for the mine tomorrow morning and  will remain there several days.  The Whitewater.  A report recently circulated, to the  effect that the Whitewater lead had  been found in the long tunnel on the  Whitewater Ceep and in it a -foot of  clean ore, proves to have been a mistake. A small stringer cut the other  day possibly gave rise to tho repot t.  However, news of the cutting of the  vein may be expected soon, as the face  now in 575 feet, is within 50 feet of  where the vein should be and Engineer Boss expects to. strike it within  that distance.  A New Town Born.  The townsite survey of the Crow's  Nest Landing has been completed' and  lots are selling well. There is. also  considerable sale for the farm lands  neur the town. The property is owned  by the East Kootenay Valley Company and is at a point on the Koote-  nuy river near the great coal fields and  on the line of travel from Tobacco  Plains and Bonners Ferry. TLe new  town already has a customs house, a  hotel, two stores, a school house and  a "sehool marin". The company owns  about 28,000 acres of land in-Kootenay  valley which is being platted and  placed on the market.  Amusement*.  The venscope pictures of the Corbett-  Fitzsimmons figbt attracted a good house  at the Carney hall last night." The performance is to be repeated tonight. Tbe  pictures are a true representation of the  great prize fight and the whole thins is  bo realistic that people forget for the  moment that they are only looking at  pictures. Every thing is faithfully portrayed even to Corbett's fierce attack on  Fitzsimmons, after he has been counted  out. The only unpleasant feature last  night was that some of the audience forgot that they were gentlemen and persisted in smoking, although ladies were  present. The management was at fault  iu not forcibly ejecting the otfenders. ���������  Mr. John McGuire, manager of the  company, is a large owner in the opera  houses of Montana, and at one time was  interested in eleven of them. He will  accompany the veriscope company to the  coast and swing back on the circuit as far  east as Montana. He is known in theatrical circles all o-ver the west, and has  done more for theatrical circles than any  other person in the west.  A QUESTION OF YARDS.  DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN THE OITY  ENGINEER AND CONTRACTORS.  McLean   A   Co.   put   In  a   BUI   That  Is  Objected lo.���������Bond Tax Collecter -  Holds Out ills Commission.  All members of the city council were  present at the meeting last Monday  night and one of the.first things taken  up for consideration was a bill of  $542.40 from Contractors Morris &  McLean for removing 180 cubic yards  of rock from Stanley and Silica  streets.  ft -   4       ���������  The mayor stated that the bill: had  not been certified to by. the city en;  gineer and in fact the latter had been  trying unsuccessfully to adjust tlie  difficulty as his measurements were  different than those of ' the contract;  ors. There-had been less than. 100  yards of rock .taken-out according to.  the engineer's report.   ;  Alderman Teetzel did not believe  there was anything like 180 cubicyards  of rock removed.  The mayor stated that the city engineer had reported that, the city  would be safe in paying for 100 yards.  If they could not agree he thought it  would be,fair to take the" contractors'  time, boot for. the work - and . allow  them 15 per cent in addition. :. After  some further discussion the matter  was referred to the city engineer with  instructions to' report .at the next  meeting. r .    -���������' .  Bills to the amount of $2821.30 were  ordered paid. . They included one for  $1600.22 from McLean & Co. on., the  sewer contract.        Mayor Houston reported that when  the road tax bylaw went into effect the  clerk found that he ' could not make  all the collections and the poundkeep^.  er and a man known as. Sandy Allen  "were appointed to assist, him. The  poundkeeper collected one tax and  Allen collected $166 .and turned in $120.  The mayor stated that no - compensation had been arranged for the. col-  lecfcionand hejfiought itbest to bring  it before the council-before a settlement was" made. So far $850 had been  collected. After some discussion it  was decided to allow Allen a commission of 12J per cent oivs all collections  made by him. '  Alderman Teetzel suggested that a  good stove be provided for the fire hall  for the purpose of drying hose. He  was in the hall a few days previous tp  the meeting and had noticed a quantity of half frozen hose on the floor.  It was decided to have a stove put in  ���������the-tower so that-hose- could-bc-thor-  oughly drained and dried. The work  of laying pipe for the water system  was discussed at some length, Mayor  Houston explaining that the weather  had greatly retarded the progress.  Most of the pipes have been laid and  eleven hydrants are in position.  Adjourned until Monday, December 0. .-.       ".,"���������'  '     LIME WAS EFFECTIVE..  It Hn* Obliterated   the    Last   Trace   ������r  ' Murderer Woods.  On 'Thursday last. the remains, or  what was supposed to be the remains  of James Wood, the murderer, were  removed from thc old jail yard to the  now jail yard. The former is to be  used as private residence grounds and  thc occupants do not want any murderous shades lingering around the  premises. The constable in " charge  caused the lid of the box to be opened  and as.far as he could see, there was  not even a bone remaining, the lime  that' was put in with the body having  completely done its work. The box  however, was buried in the new jail  yard. : f  An employe of the San Francisco  Examiner recently saw a picture of  Woods at Ymir and was instantly  struck with the resemblence to a man  named Dunham who is wanted in California for the murder of a family, of  five. He was so sure that he sent one  of the pictures down to San Francisco  for further identification.  Placers Laid Over.  , Acting Gold Commissioner W. J.  Goepel, has published notice that all  placer claims and leaseholds in the south  riding of West Kootenay may be laid  over until June 1,1898.  Barristers and Solicitors.  The B. C.

On Monday night,-Chief of Police  McKinnon suspended Patrolman McLeod  for conduct unbecoming an officer. It  appears that McLeod ignored his buttons  and became engaged' in a row during  which the manly art was the chief form  of argument. The police commission  was to have met last Thutsday but ns no  quorum was present thc session did not  take place. A special meeting will probably be called by the mayor this afternoon or Monday and a new patrolman  elected. It is understood that Duncan  McBeth is to be McLeod's successor.  SOLD FOB $50,000.   -  The   Bnm   to be Paid for   the   Evening  Star. ������  . One of the best deals ever made in the  Slocan country was the sale this week .of  the Evening Star for $50,000. This is  undoubtedly one of the best properties  in the distriot, and was developed up to  the showing on which it was sold by the  original owners. rMr. Hugh Sutherland  came here from Winnipeg and examined  the property, but it was understood that  the offer of,the owners was refused and  that all deals were off when Mr. Sutherland took his departure last week. The  value of the property seems.to bave carried its own weight, for Mr. Sutherlond  telegraphed that he would accept the  proposition made by the .owners. The  deal is practically cash, as the purchasers  are not allowed to do auy work on the  property until a final sum mentioned in  tbe dealis fully paid up.���������Pioneer.

"  J1A"differential-will-be made iu ndditioir  to this in favor of-ore shipped iu sacks,  sufficient to cover the cost of sacking  the ore. In other words the railway companies practically pay the shippers for  sacking.  For instance, where the charge would  otherwise be 816.50 per ton for oie shipped in bulk, it will be $15.25 for ore in  sacks.  KNIGHTS". OF PYTHIAS ORGANIZE..

CARIBOO CREEK CAMP;  MANY PROMISING- CLAIMS  BEING  DEVELOPED THIS WINTEJt  The Bridge  Over  Ononokliii  (,'rcek  was,  Completed this Week and Ihe  Men   raid   Off.  Mr. F. G. Fauquier, mining recorder of  Nakusp, was in Nelson yesterday arid,  furnished some interesting news relative  to the Cariboo Creek camp.  The Promistoia claim is being worked  by o full force of meu, winter quarters  having just beeu completed., The property is under bond to James -Brady of  Rossland for $25,000. '.,-...  The Chieftain group which is under  a $50,000 bond to F. Burns of Nelson and  McKiuzio of Toronto has\a'force of 8  men at work. Average assays across tho  ledge are said to have given"$270 in silver, $35 in gold and 9 per cent, copper..  The ledge shows a width of fi feet and  about 100 feet of tunnel has beeu, driven  in it. ' -  Eight men are employed on the Good.  Hope group which is principally owned  by Finch & McMillan of-Rossland. All  the supplies are iu for the winter and -it  is proposed to push the ' work steadily  ahead. , . ...  Seveu applications have been made  for placer leases on Cariboo creek. Three  of these have been grauted to Alexunder  McLaren &"Son of London,' Eng., ' and  R. S. Burton of Burton City. The other  four applications are from John G. Devlin  ou behalf of.a Scotch syndicate. Owing  to the lorge boulders Cariboo cieek cannot be worked by poor men, but it is  thought it will yield^large returns with  proper appliances. Just how soou work  will commence uuder tlio leases is a matter of conjectures ,��������� J  -TheAaron's Hod Mining Company is  in 95 feet on its property, 14 miles this  side of Burton City, . This tunnel is to be  driven a distance of 500 feet. 'Ab a distance of 80 feet'the ledge . was crosscut  and showed four-feet of,-carbonates the  value of which bus not teen ascertained.  There are three claims .in "the group  known as the Completor, Goldon Climb  aud Chicimeu.  The Fiie* Valley-governmeut bridge  across Ononoklin creek is completed and  tlio men \vc:e' paid ofi' last Thursday.  Thc completion of this bridge gives a  good roc.d to tbe present postofiice and  connects-with the" main road aud "trail  from Vernon.  Iu relation to Nakusp, Mr. I^iuquier  states that P. Genelle & Co's. mill is running in full force and has CO men iu the  woods. The change of lime by the boats  and trains hns largely affected the hotel  business as passengers now make close  'connections-aud do uot-btop-over-at-that���������  town, lhe steamer Lytton is at present  ou lhe ways being generally overhauled  and repaired and is expected to be off in  ten days or two weeks.

Catalogues of the  sale are now beiuj; prepared1-and "will  soon be ready for distribution,  It will be the last chance of securing  lots at low rates and easy terms, as individual holdings arc always higher thau  tho.;e of the governmeut. The terms will  be: one-third cash; one-third in -three  months, and one-third in six months,"  with intereat.on deferred payments at  the rate of six per cent, per annum. Xelson is a city of homes and is justly  kuown'as the capital of West Kootenay.  Its geographical position, coupled with  its transportation facilities by both- land  and water, make it the natural distributing point, and its commercial importance i3 now au ��������� established fact. The  Hall Mines company, with its mine and  smelter, and the many other producing  mining properties near Nelson employ  much labor and give the city a standing  that will be enduring. The coming of  the Crows' Nest line will be of vast benefit to"the couutry at large and Nelson  will profit largely by it The growth of  the city and district is substantial and insures to any intending purchaser of residence property the future prosperity and  greatness of Nelsou.  *.*T  '���������'&  i\  t  -1!  ."!*������������"**lV<"*" i-^* ''  :'4l  ���������fell  ��������� "���������?  ������������������i  J-  if,  V  r  1  ?f  >��������� it THE MINER NELSON, ;B.

For instance the  Municipal Flections Amendment Actof  1897, under which tbis registration is  regulated commences by saying in  clause 2 that "section 5 of the said act"  is repealed, there being nothing whatever to indicate what act is referred to  This is a very good sample of the way  our laws are constructed under the  guidance of the present attorney-gen-,  eral, Again the payment of taxes is  a condition precedent of being placed  on the roll.- The amendment actof  97 requires these tp be paid by the  first day of November in city municipalities and by the first of December  vin township or district municipalities.  The interpretation clause in thc'pnrcnt  act of 1800 refers us again to another  act of the same year���������Municipal Incorporations���������to find oi.it the.difference  between tbe two kinds of municipalities, .and as Nelson comes under  neither head, it would seem that it is  not necessary to pay any taxes ut all.  There seems to be no properly appointed court of revision at which  omissions and errors may be corrected  although' there i.s an appeal .to a judge  ���������in-the-case���������of-^-omissionsr���������-Bufc-the-  biiproceedings arc again different in the  two classes of municipalities and as'it  is not at all clear under which Nelson  ranks, it is impossible to say what is  ' to "be done in thc event oE mistakes  being discovered. When a-court of  revision is held, (as provided  for   district   municipalities) the - city  'I  council  itself forms thc court,"which  ��������� is quite mediicval  in its'giant absurdity and utter disregard for tho protection of the people.  There is one point on which tbe Act  of 1800 is quite clear. IL is tho definition -of the word 'householder'. This  person *is .described not only us the  owner of a dwelling but any person  who owns or occupies any "messuage  dwelling or tenement, or any part o������"-  thc same of the value of sixty dollars  per annum. It is provided, however,  that this qualification must have  existed for twelve months prior to the  first of day November. This latter  clause- seems as if it might disqualify  -many persons claiming to be voters in  Nelson. "  Enough has been shown to indicate  . the   carelessness.' and looseness with  whicli   our   Acts   of. Parliament- are  -' drawn, but that will not interfere with  the result in Nelson  whicli is a foregone conclusion, but it may "serve a.s a  Weapon, in the hands   of those who  wish to sec a change at Victoria.  As wc have pointed out above it is  not very clear whether Nelson i.s a  city or township municipality. ~ If it is  a city, clause 8 of thc parent act of 1890  provides that the list of voters be  closed "on the first Monday in December" and must be corrected and revised by the mayor not later than the  third Monday in the same month. If  Nelson ranks as a district or township  municipality clause 3 of the amend-  A SPHERE OF INFLUENCE.  There arc rumblings of war on the  west coast 'of Africa between the  English and French. The causes of  the disturbance will probably bo settled by diplomacy but there is a  feature in them of considerable historical interest to British Columbians  because the same thing practically  settled what was called tho Oregon  question and gave the greater part of  the State of Washington to our neighbors. All along the West coast of  Africa different European nations  have strips of territory. They are  divided from each other by boundaries  definite only for it few miles from the  sea, but the "sphere of influence" of  thc owners of the coast is recognized  as extending indefinitely back into  what is called the Hinterland behind  it. Away in tbe heart of Africa is a  town which is the trade center of tliat  vast district and the question at issue  is to settle whether it is within thc  British or the French "sphere of influence."  When negotiations were afoot as to  the ownership of tbat valuable part  of Washington which lies to the west  of the Columbia river and which was  then in.British occupation, the Americans claimed as successors of the  original colonists who settled all along  the Atlantic coast, that their sphere  of influence or hinterland extended  right back as far as there was any land,  that is to the Pacific and that therefore the land in question was theirs.  So well recognized in this principle  that it went ii long way to settle the  matter.  mas  Presents  What to buy, and where  to buy it, is now the  absorbing question of  the hour, and to help  you out, we beg- to call  your    attention    to    our  PROFESSIONAL   CAKDg.

(571)  The Tribune is wroth because we  object to the division of Nelson into  wards and eagerly points that it is not  the poor mayor's fault. He is the  victim of a vicious Act of Parliament  which compels him to rend the town  in twain. The apology practically  proves our contention or at any rate  shows that the Tribune is with us as  any sensible paper would be. We  shall therefore be able to work together for the repeal of the objectionable clause.  CHURCH   NOTICES.  Church op England. Matins 11 a.m.  Even Song, 7.30 p. m. every Sunday.

Such information a.s Eustasc obtained he wrote and pub  in a quill and attached it to the pigeon, and  I think mademoiselle herself carried' it to  thc upi>cr window ef tho chateau and let .  it fly, ami tho bird winged  her way right  over tho forest.    And now Eustasc said to  Agnes, "You havo won for me the cross  gnd my epaulets."    But just thou they'  heard a shot.  That evening Gris Lapin camo to my  placo and I told him about his son and ho  Konld hardly belicvo me. And as wc were  talking together iii a low voice we hoard  tho sound of a military party���������tramp,  tramp, tramp���������and behold thero camo  along at the double an arnietl guard of  Prussians with a prisoner in the middle  of them, his hands tied behind hiin, as  pale as death, with a strange glazed look  In tho eyes. "That is n poor fellow whom  they have caught sending messages to our  army by a carrier pigeon, heaven..bless -  him," somobody said. And ut that Gris  Lapin staggered forward and threw him-"-  self among the soldiers with a loud cry,  while thc prisoner turned his head. "Mon  pcre," he cried, springing toward hiin as  well a.s he could, but tho soldiers urged  him along with their bayonets and drove  away Gris Lapin with blows, and he fell  backward among us more dead thanalive.  Itwas terrible! Tho young iiiaii.was'to  be shot. The countess and Mile.-Agnes  woro to be sent out of France. The pigeon  'which had been shot had told tho whole  story. That evening Gris Lapin .came.to  seo me. I tried to comfort him,' but ho '  bade me hold my tongue, for that I know-  nothing about tho matter. "That might  be," I said, "but I know this much���������that  if I knew tho traitor who had betrayed  hini I would do my best to strangle him  with these two hands of mine." At this  Gris Lapin dashed ut mc, tearing the wrapper from his brawny throat. "Do you say  so? Then strangle mc, for Iain tho traitor!"  Ho had shot the pigeon and had taken  it to tho Prussians a.vl sold ib for CO francs  with tho littlo burden it carried. "Yes, I  have sold -my son's lifo," ho groaned.  "Well, lam :going awey���������I am going to  take charge of mademoiselle and my wifo.  Thoy need never know," looking at me  fiercely. "No," I said, "they need never  kuow���������nor anybody.else, for' that-matter.  I should not betray you." "You will not  betray mc," repeated Gris Lapin, "but  you will not touch hands upon that."  "No," I said, druwiiig back, "I will not."  At that his mood changed and ho tiling  himself into tho operating chair and liude  ine light my lamp and shave his beard. In  a. new country he would be a now man.  And indeed he looked a now man with  his gray beard taken off and his hair shortened���������a. much younger man, for his hair  was still black, cr only speckled with gray.  When I hud. finished, lie muffled up his  face, saying with' a.bitter laugh that it  would not- do to tako a chill. "And now,"  he said, "I am promised ton minutes with  my son. It will be a pleasant interview,  don't you think?" with n hollow laugh  that made my blood run cold. "And before  daylight tomorrow," ho continued, "I  shall I30 far away from here and we shall  never meet again. Will you not touch  hands?" "My friend," 1 said, "may  heaven forgive you, butl cannot take your  hand.'' And Gris Lapin turned away and  was lost lo siglit in the darkness. ���������  1 slept soundly- enough that night, for  whatever people's troubles may be 0110  must work and work brings.tlio need of  repose, .but just beforo daybreak I was  aroused by tho soldiers who were billeted  upon mo turning out. -I got up to seo  what was tho matter, when a.scrgeaut,  catching sight of me, made signs to me in  a rough, authoritative way to tako up a  spado and follow him. I-turned sick at  what was going to happen', but these were  people nob be trilled with, and I marched  away to thc forest with thc rest.  It was in this little clearing, monsieur,  where tho living party was drawn up, with  .one solitary figuro stripped to his shirt  standing beforo them. I flung myself  down on tho ground and buried my face ���������>  in   the   moss,  and  the volley rang   out  Yy.:mm  Y'^YY t  ":V"r;y;  y:.g;.^x;YY:y;y  I.  ymYmm  - rl  ;SSlii:  n:;:-t:.  ���������'ir.Y'������������������'������������������������������������  rc^dirnd"el"earr~V;ri"d~tlioiFnib~fb7iiig.par  marched, off, and I was left with the sr  goant, who was carelessly pacing  up 111  down, and who motioned to mo to dig the  grave.    But first I went up to the body to .  close  tlio eyes  that were  staring wildly,  with, I fancy,   some littlo consciousness  still lei'c in thein.    But thc face was quite  different from what I expeclcd���������with the  marks of-my own  razor upon it, and a    .  gash that I mado in my agitation tho night "  before!  ,Id was  tho  face  of  Gris. Lapin.  "Ah, how I pressed his hand, and I fancied  that the numbed- fingers  feebly returned  the pressure! . Mis crime was expiated  he  might rest in peace. And, ma foi, I should  liko to lio here myself, with tho sound of  thc ax in tho distance and  thc wood pigeons cooing.    But that  is  all folly,  for.  when we aro dead, what matters?  Mind, f do not believe for a moment  that tho young man thought lhat ho had  left his father to die. Mo could not think  it possible that they should shoot ono. man  for another. Nor would lhey have done so  but for the ruse of- Oris Ijipin In having  his well known beard taken off. But,  anyhow, tho young man escaped, and the  guard did not recognize tho change. And  perhaps he does not know to this day, for  whon the war was over none could say  what had become of Gris Lapin. And I  also hold my peace, fori, thought that such  would be the wish of my old comrade.  But M. Eustaso "got his epaulets, after  all, and in the' cnd'lo comte gave his permission that ho should marry Mile. Agnes.  And madaiuiywho was at first very angry,  was afterward reconciled, and when she' .  died���������both sho and lo comto are ��������� now  dead���������she left the bulk of her fortune to  the young couple. And so the little Eus-_  tasc is now M. do Bienville and hunts the  forest like a grand seigneur, but some of  us remember that, after all, he is the son  of Gris Lupin.���������All the Year Round.

NOTICE-  The partnership heretofore existing  between Ragless'& Nilson, doing business as scavengers has this day been-  dissolved. WM. RAGLESS.  SWAN NILSON.  Dated at Nelson the 8th day of November 1897  The busiuess will hereafter be carried  on by Swan Nilson who will pay all bills  and collect all money due.        * 791  >T.:G: PROCTER,  teal Estate 1 Mines,  L  BAKER STREET,  Nelson,       -'      -        B.C.  5 doors west of Bank of Montreal, V. O. Box 229.  ?liey   SUould  be  WIliiTis. to fake Some  f ~~  Stock.  ..The Empire produces the following  interview with Lieutenant-Governor  Charles Mackintosh, the vendor of certain Rosslaud properties to a syndicate  represented by Whitaker Wright and  others:  "The company will probably be called  the Corporation of British America, and I  expect at any time to receive a cable message telling me of its registration.   The  jcapjiBl_i8_������l,000,000,jJ_wliicho.neiliBlf.  has already been eagerly subscribed,  while the balance has beeu spoken for by  brokers and busiuess men.  "Never have I seen such an optimistic  feeling iu the British Columbia miniog  market, both in Eastern Canada and in  England,'aud I had no difficulty whatever in floating the company. I feel safe  in saying that the mine owners of this  district can have all the English capital  they need for the development of their  properties.   The only thing that stands  "in the way is the anxiety of many mine  owners to sell for cash ouly, and to get  out of the properties entirely. .The  Englishman looks with suspicion on that  sort of thing. He is distrustful of a  miner who is feverishly anxious to be riJ  of his claim. Something must be wrong  wheu the seller is unwilling to retain an  interest in the mine which the company  is about lo develop. If the prospective  seller can only be induced to take part  stock in payment for his mine it will  facilitate deals wonderfully, and be  accepted as au evidence of the vendor's  faith in the property.  "I expect to resign my commission as  Lieutenant-Governor on January 4, and  shall then begiu my services for the company as managing director, with offices  in Rossland and Vancouver. Our field  of gold mining will consist chiefly of Red  mountain properties.. We already have  options on four claims, aud expect to  secure possession of two or three more.  The company will begin active development about the first of the year. My  present visit is in connection with signing  of options on suitable properties. No,  we shall not operate mines under the  bonding system. If a property suits us  ire shall buy it outright, but we do not  care to handle anything but mines at  least partially developed.      *      *  "In British Columbia there are not  more than-120,000 white men. In a  province containing as much wealth as  London, in which there is not a white  population sufficient to fill the houses in  Bristol. The mines are rich, the fisheries are marvellous, the agricultural lands  just -want the surplus timber removed.  There is not a more promising land for  British settlers or investors, for they and  their property remain under the protection of British laws."  W. A.

Brice, tlie metallurgist, chemist  inventor and President aud General  Manager ot tl-e' National Metallurg'c  Company, decides thai he will iu Chicago  commence, on s> large scale, the manufacture of pure gold.  Tbe process by whicli this will be accomplished is the invention of Mr. Brice,  who makes no secret of his formula,  protecting himself, by ��������� patents covering  the machinery and appliances necessary  to make, the artificial ore from the pure  antimony. This metal sells at the rate of  8i cents a .pound, while gold, 100 fine, is  quoted at ������20.67 per ounce.  Brice anounces^ that be will be able to  make 10,000 lbs. of ore a day with each  of his four furuaccs. Thid ore he explained, will yield, when refined by the  usual process of refining base bullion,  $2,6.30, to the ton.  Tbe cost of producing a ton of ore, tlie  inventor of the process says, is very little,  while the cost of refining it is also of  small importance.   .  Brice is a native of Dayton, O., and has  long studied chemistry. Brice is the man  who some time sig.j inveigled Secretary  Gage into turning the Government  chemists loose on a series of experiments:,  to teat the valne of Brice's invention.  Here Again.
