BOB8LAND, B.  ayne,  The miners' hall is now nearly -finished, and when complied will be one  of the best buildings In the interior. It  is substantial in every respect and has  all the ante-room, lavatones.etc, that a  building of its purposes should possess  and is certainly a credit to its promoters  and the miners in general. It will cost  when completed, about $10,000. .,'  A sad accident occurred at the Ivanhoe on Monday; by which Wm.'Bryant I  the foreman, lost his life.   The accident  was.acavc in of a large  mass of earth  under which the deceased  was held for  some time.   He was but 24 years of age  and   was  an industrious  and   capable  young man.

The Highland mine at Ainsworth is  now a shipper.  It is said the Star will  of $25,000 this month.  The last shipment of the American  Boy ore netted $1,104 per car.  . A shipment of ore from the Speculator  at Slocan gave 1100 ozs. of Bilver.  Crawford Creek is attracting the attention of mining men these times. ���������  The Whitewater mine shipped 328  tons of ore for the week ending November 29th.  An assay should be of a sample, not a  specimen, to be fair to the owner or  prospective buyer.  The Heather Bell mine, near -Three  Forks, has been seized by the sheriff to  ' satisfy a claim of $308 hold by Angus J.  McDonald for work.  The Trade Dollar is turning out a valuable property under development, and  the impression is growing that it will  shortly give a good account of itself.  The Monitor mine at Three Forks,  has presented the owners with a strike  of considerable importance. It was  always held the Monitor was a geod  property, and big things' are expected  later on.   <  The Rink Company Formed.

C, another  large lot,16,000 shares, of the Kaalo-Slo-  can Development Company's mining  stock. This makes about 220,000 shares  ot this stock that he has purchased on  his own account. It is evident that his  confidence in the company has not suf-  I fered from his recent inspection of the  mines."  It is understood that the Ottawa property, adjoining the Tamarac on Springer  creek, will ship a quantity of ore during  the winter.   The owners, Thomas Mul-  vey and John McKinnon,   are   working  the-proposition and have quite shipping  of ore in sight at present.   Their vein  is similar   to   that   of   the   Arlington,  carrying leaf silver.and   it   is   expected  that the Ottawa shipments  wili   make  somewhat of a sensation.   The Tamarac  will make several shipments during the  winter.   ������������������' ���������  The Methodist church services and  and Sabbath school will be held in the  Miners'Union hall next Sunday..  be  C.  Everything that was gay and  beautiful  in   banilon   and   several townships  around appeared at the Miners' Union  ball   on_ Thursday   evening.   The hall  was testily arranged, the new scenery  setting it out in excellent  form.   The  attendance was large, the supper one of  the best ever served in the city, the arrangements faultless, and the management first class.   All connected with the  arrangements have every right to congratulate themselves on   their  success.  At least thu is the verdict of the ladies  present, and though the writer was not  present, we fully endorse their decision  FOR OVER FIFTY YEARS  Mrs. Winslows Soothing Byrup has been used  by millions of mothers for their children when  teething.

THINGS WORTH KNOWING.  To clean carpeta, dissolve one  ounce and a half of alum in ono  quart of warm water, and; one ounce  and a half, of Fuller's earth in another quart of warm water. Put a  little of each in a bucketful of salt-  watorl -adding a little oxgall, and  rubbing in some common brown soap.  Then wash the carpels little by little  with this '-'mixture till rather wet,  rubbing it well with a coarse cloth.  The carpet will appear as fresh and  bright as  new.  To clean decanters put the tea  leaves from tho teapot into the decanters overnight with a'little'cold  water. In. the morning shake them  well until quite clean. Then rinse  and polish,. Some use small pieces  of paper cut up and put in the bottle with some water. Salt will remove  stains   left  by  lime.  For blackheads bathe the faco at  night with vary hot water, drying  ' it with a soft towel, and then rub in  very gently some cold cream, perfumed or not. In the morning wash  your face well with hot water and  soap, and then give it .a bath in tepid  . water, so that all the soapsuds may  be removed, finishing off with1 cold  water.  If the water is very (hard a tiny bit  of soda, not larger than a pea, added will maio tho vegetables cooked in  it tenderer and of better color. Ordinary water does not require such  addition.  The best way to wash' bedsteads is  to thoroug-hly sponge all parts of the  bedstead with hot water in which a  little alum h.is been dissolved.  If clothes are soaked over night,  one teaspoonful of pure ammonia in  each tub of water will materially  lesson the labor of washing.  A simple and good disinfectant to  pour down a sink is a small quantity of charcoal mixed with' water.  A small piece' of charcoal placed  with boiling cabbage will absorb  the  disagreeable   odor.  eyes they arc.   But I frankly confess  that, personally,11 don't like it."  CHIL-  VALUE OF PUMICE STONE.  It may- not- bo apparent to all  housewives, but pumice stone is really an indispensable requisite for the,  kitchen table. There is nothing  better to remove burn from granite  pans and kettles. Obstinate rust  upon steel knives will also vanish if  it is vigorously applied.  A NEW   PHOTOGRAPHIC FAD.  There are fade in photography, just  as in everything else. When the Trilby craze was on a lot of irresponsible  girls insisted upon having their feet  photographed.- 'A shapely hand, holding a flower, also had a certain vogue  for awhile. Now women are  coming to have pictures of their eyes  taken. Perhaps this is not so absurd  as it seems at first thought, for tho  eye is usually the most expressive feature of the human face. Tho camera  is placed very close to the sitter, and  io focused so that the features are  . much motrei.prominent than in the ordinary photograph'. When the pictures are mounted all ���������; but the strip  across -tb.e.: eyes is cut away, showing  the eyes and. the bridge of the nose,  "I can't say that the effect, is very,  artistic," said a photographer, yesterday, " but the women who have  their eyes photographed, all seem  pleased with the result. They claim  that their friends when shown the pic-  *��������� V  ture, are able to tell at once wh'o^o  OUTDOOR' LIFE FOR , THE  .��������� . "DREN. "  When the little one is sent out for  an airing, do not dress him up clean  and then put him in charge of an older person, with the injunction to see  that he does not soil his clothes. Don't  do it if'tho little ono is a girl/either,  Boy or girl, let them romp and turn- recommended; the former is especially  ble on the grass; yes, and play in the ^able, and if the varnish gets shab-  dirt, too. See that they, have some b? another coat may be applied,  sport where, without   molesting any-  ia to exterminate as rapidly as possible. '      . ' ' ,  VARNISHED WALL PATER. .  Varnished wall paper, has many advantages, and especially in a dirty,  smoky town, for it can be washed  with soap and water and bo perfectly'clean without any expense For  halls,* bathrooms and children's rooms  varnished paper or painted walls are  thing, or being molested themselves,  they can exercise a child's natural instinct   to   d:g  in   the  ground! *  And, of course, tins plea is not  alone for the very younor ones, but for  the older ones as well.' Give all the  children the- privilege of happy, unrestricted play on the .earth and in  it.  And there is the'sand pile, with its  possibilities in Lhe way of amusement  and education as well! " We learn by  doing," and the pile of sand where  the little workers build and burrow,  construct forts and mountains,' and  dig wells and caves \v bile, engaging  the faculties in healthful play, is an  educational factor not to be lightly  esteemed. In the winter'time let tho  older ones play in the dry snow whenever possible.  PLENTY OF AIR.  The cellar,' like the living rooms,'1  ought, if possible, to have a good supply ' of air, light and sunshine, the  morning sun being preferable, and  all its oompartments Should be easy  of access, both from the outside and  from tho kitchen stairway. But  tho orio thing to bo remembered,  first, last, .and all time, <is that every  part of it must bo kept clean; no  mold, no soured fruits or other spoiled victuals, no stagnant water, nothing that ean possibly creato a bad  '���������odor or in any way contaminate the  air. Even tho dust and' cobwebs  ought to be pretty .carefully looked  after. Of course there must bo no  roaches, no mice, and if possible no  flies; all these pest3 give least trouble when there is nothing', lying  around to feed them; but if they do  put in an appearance,  the best  way.  1 After a case of infectious illness in  a houso where expenses have Lo be'  considered, one fully appreciates a  varnished room. The walls once  washed with proper disinfectants,  the great expense of repapering is  saved. The first outlay in this treatment of tho walls is decidedly heavy,  but  it. yields excellent  interest,  A PRETTY CHAIR CUSHION.  To make a dainty chair cushion,  take any pretty piece ot flannel orr  bxoadclothi and back of it put a  layer of wadding, and a foundation  of denim or heavy musliu. <���������'Quilt  these together-in diamonds with any.  pretty shade of embroidery silk, or  several colors may be used. Line  the cushion with light-colored sateen,  and put ruffles of tho sateen, one  over lapping tho other, and the lower twice as ��������� wide as the. upper, between the flannel and lining,' Stitch  three times around with embroidery  silk and fill with any desired ma-"  texial.  CHARLES   DICKENS'   PRESENT.   I  Charles Dickens was always very,  fond, of children. One day he was  walking! in tho neighborhood of Gad's  bill, not long after he had acquired hia  property there, when he suddenly ran  into a little girl wheeling a doll's  perambulntor. In an instant the tiny,  vehicle upset, the dolls being thrown  out.   .  It was a bad.accident.as far as they  were concerned, for wax heads and  limbs aro hot calculated to otandsmuohi  hard, usage. The little maid burst  into tears, and, much to the novelist's  sorrow, refused to be comforted.  "Then como homo with me," Dickens  whispered/soothingly, "and we'll see if  wo can't find some grand waxen lady  in'silks and'satins for you."  ' So back to the big house the two  went, and sure enough, up in his children's nursery he managed to discover  a few prettily dressed dolls. With!  these safely tucked in her perambula.  tor ,the little girl trotted off.  (But it is in! the sequel that the best  part of tho story lies. The child's  heart was set on making some return  for this kLnduess, so her parents,  who had not the faintest suspicion of  her friend's personality, took her toi  town to choose something. Her choice  foil' eventually upon a ' gorgeously  bou'nd  book,  ' When Dickens the next day undid  the parcel his small visitor brought  him he was surprise'd and delighted to  see a copy of "David Copperfield."  , Not u'ntil many years'later, when  th'ey met again in society, did the little  girl learn who tho "kind gentleman"  TEACHING Tlltl LITTLE ONES.  It is wonderful how much knowledge  ca,n bo imparted to small children by  a quick,nursemaid, who has an inkling  of the kindergarten system. Children  are never tired of asking questions,  and if. these are intelligently answered they pick up all sorts of useful  knowledge without any actual teaching. .The object of the kindergarten  system is Lo teach the IRtlo ones to  think for' themselves, and it is worth  every mother's and nurse's while to  leiifh something of it. The custom of  talking nonsense to them and distorting words cannot be Loo much condemned.  A Terribly   Painful   Case of Burning, Torturing  Eczema, Which Was Thoroughly Cured by  Using Dr. Chase's Ointment.  The torture which is caused  intense   itching   and   burning  tions  of eczema makes it'one ,  most distressing    of   ailments,  the. presence'of the raw flesh,  by Lhe  sensa-  of tho  while        which  refuses" Lo heal under ordinary .treatment, adds to the-misery of the sufferer. ;   '  The following case is reported as  one. which illustrates the'extraordi-  nary control which Dr. Chase's Ointment 'has over eczema, both as a  prompt relief for the dreadful itching sinU'as an antiseptic healer, which  speedily and certainly brings about  a thorough-cure. . .  In vain were all sorts -of���������medicines  and ointments, used and doctors appeared to be helpless before the dreadful ravages which tho flaming fires  of. eczema .were making. Here is the  way Mrs.! Knight describes .this ' interest! nk case': ...������������������'.'  Mrs; Knight, 17 Hanover Place, Toronto ���������", states: "My mother, Mrs  Wright, of Norval, suffered for a summer and winter with eczema on her  foot. She could neither walk nor sleep,  and it became so bad that she was perfectly raw from her toes to her knees.  After trying every available remedy  without success, and almost hopeless  of relief, she began' using .Dr. Chase's  Ointment. ,. She has altogether used  .eight ;or nine boxes, with the h'a'ppy  result that she is How completely  cured. Anyone wishing further particulars can communicate with Mrs.  Wright, Norval, Ont. After such a  grand success, is iL any wonder that,  we fecommeiid Dr. Chase's Ointment?'.'  It', is just such) tests as this one  that' have convinced physicians' of the  truly wonderful power of Dr. Chase's  Ointment. ' If you t\re a sufferer,  with any itching skin disease, or have  a sore that will not heal, make' a, teat'  for yourself. You will certainly become an enthusiastic adihirer of Dr.  Dr. Chase's Ointment, just as is everyone who knows its merits. Besides  curing the most.severe forms of itching skin diseases, Dr. Chase's Ointment  is delightfully healing and soothing in  all'cases of chafing,'skin irritations^  sore feet, prickly heat, pimples .. and  blackheads. CO cents a '' box at all  dealers, or Edm'anson, Bates & Co.  Toronto; ' ������������������-���������  CEMENT FOR STONE.  The combination of 'red and white  lead with boiled linseed oil and litharge makes a good cernent for joining  stones of any size. It.should ibe used  by dressing a strip of thin cloth on  each side and placing .this beLween  the parts to ba joined, .i The stone,  should bo warmed, if possible. This '  cement will resist boiling water. As  to' proportions, there is no regular  formula. To dry' quickly, red lead  should bo used in greater proportions.  If thero is no hurry, white lead'  should bo used in excess'.* 1 prefer  the white lead when ample time can  be given for drying. . Equal parts of  oil and litharge may be used. Another Formula���������Seven or eight parts  of resin and one of ..beeswax, melted  together, and mixed with a small ���������  quantity of plasLor of paris, is" a  good cemenL Lo uniLe pieces of stone.  The stone should bo made' hot enough  to melt the cement, and tho pieces  should be pressed together as closely  as possible, so as Lo leave as little as  may be of Lhe cement between: them.  This is a general rule in cementing,  as tho thinner tho strata of cement-  interposed, the firmer it will hold.   ������   FATHER'S ESSAY WRITING.

Mr.  Sifton and his friends never tire  of  talking   of   Mr.   Sifton's   "glorious  triumph,"  in Brandon;   but tht-y arc  ever careful to conceal the methods by  which the triumph was won.   The facts  are   now,   however,  coming    to   light.  Frank Taylor,  Joseph Carton,   Henry  Pcallion. and" Arch.  Stewart have been  arrested for crookedness, and the follow-  "  ing appears as a report of the police  court in Brandon:  Carson being called the chief of police  :   narrated how Frank Taylor  had been  arrested, and how he went with Taylor  ������������������ the Liberal committee room to indentify  ,<������������������ the man who  had given  him a certain  voting ticket, but did not find him in the  . rooms, but when outside Taylor pointed  out Carson and had him arretted.  Frank Taylor, of Dauphin, upon first  being interrogated insolently refused to  state where he came from and how old  he was, but afterwards did so to the  Magistrate. lie said lie did not know  Carson, .nor could he say when he met  him. An enquiry into Taylor's antecedents with difficulty brought out that he  had been in the Portage police court on  the charge of rape, and though he claimed to be a baker he would not name his  employers, and admitted that his name  was not on the Brandon list. 'He  admitted getting a ballot in the name of  Thomas Sheriff and' gave it to the D. K.  0. and explained that though he was  sworn at the tihic lie did not reflect upon  what he was doing.        \  Joseph Qn inn'.was called as a witness  and recognized Taylor as voting in  Sherirf's.name at poll 16, and knew he  was not the man claimed to be. Chief  Kirkcaldy deposed as the manner of the  arrest, and that Taylor had told him he  had voted three times. Mr. Mathasori  drew attention to the fact that prisoner  was a felf-confessed perjurer and asked  ���������for highee bail upon which it was fixed  at two securities of $1,000.  Mr. T. D. M. Osborne called as witness  deposed as the manener of the arrest of  Taylor after he had voted as Sheriff, and  Mr. Cameron cross-examined.'  Archie Stewart was charged upon  evidence of Rev. A. II. Cameron to have  asked for a ballot under the name of  John Flynn, and voted. Mr. D. Monroe  testified that Stewart voted as'Flynn  whom he knew and .Stewart was not  the man. ���������      .  II. Scallion, Winnipeg, was charged  with personating. Rev. Mr. Cameron  deposed that the accused came to vote  under the name of Matthew Brandon  and he ask ed that Scallien be sworn,  but he refused the oath and so the ballot was refused. Mr. Chas. Gardner  corroborated this evidence and the court  adjourned till Monday, but in consequence of the assizes tlie cases were remanded.  Mr.   Carson   is out on  bail,  but  the  . other   prisoners   not having money to  pay  for  their meals or tobacco,   were  removed from  the lock-up to Brandon  jail on Tuesday.  Here is absolute proof Mr. Sifton's  friends hired outsiders to come in and  vote for absentees, even at the risk of  perjury, if necessary; and if the whole  truth was known, possibly with the  knowledge and consent of Mr. Sifton  himself. A pretence is made at passing  rigid legislation to secure honest elections, and the law makers themselves  in turn wink at the wholesale violation  of that legislation when they have  personal ends to serve. This would be  less matter in this particular instance  if Mr. Sifton did not pose as the apostle  of purity itself, and if his friends did not  hold him up as a model of all that  pure and good in the inake-up of mortal  man. These are the things that sicken  many of Canadian politics, and are  driving many good men to care but little  who may be elected in general elections.  It is quite possible that for leaving the  Provincial House so soon, Hugh John  would have been beaten .in any event,  but in a fair contest, it would have been  by a very much reduced majority.  POLITICAL QUIBBLING.  How politicians will wiggle and' quibble when before the electors   was   fully  illustrated by Mr. Galliher's utterances  as to the tariff at the meeting   here   on  Tuesday evening.   He says the  Liberal  declaration always was for "a,, tariff 'for  revenue only."    Now,   all   readers   of  even the Grit press know full well   Mr.  Laurier   has  often  said   the goal was  "Free Trade as they had it in England,"  "Unrestricted Reciprocity," and all such  nostrums.   It is'well known  Mr. Blake  refused to further   co-operate with   the  Liberals of Canada,' because   free  trade  was their declared aiin, and he knew   it  was impossible. ' He declared so   in  his  now celebrated address to the electors of  West Durham. ��������� In the face of   all   this  Mr. Galliher said his part}' .never   declared for more than' "ii.tarifflo'r revenue  only."   But even in this   he  is   as   far  from the truth as it is possible;   as   the  present tariffis   in   truth   higher   than  that of the   National   policy.     Import  from the States to-day a similar suit of  clothes to the one you imported in 1895,  from boots to cap,   and   you   will , pay  more duties now than then.     Go  farming and import an outfit of   agricultural  implements and  you' will   also iind   a  higher duty.   Import from   any   paper  manufacturers you like   and   you., will'  pay 35 per cent, all around.     But   win-  go outside for  the absolute   proof   Mr.  Galliher's statement was positively un-  ttue when you have  the   proof  in   the  published records1 of   the   government  themselves. e,Last year  they   say   they  had'in the neighborhood of five millions  of a surplus���������all this is taxation in   excess of the demands of the country.     A  tariff   for   revenue   raises   the   actual  requirements of the country only.,  Last  year they raised, according to their own  reports, nearly five millions in excess of  that���������they actually,   needlessly   wrung  five millions from   the  pockets "of   the  people, or .-flO from every family of ten.  and yet they have a revenue tariff!     As  a matter of fact every dollar   raised   by  the customs houses is so much protection  to home producers, then when excessive  revenues,or surplusses as they are called,  are raised it is exeessive  taxation,   the  very thing for which thej so long and so  loudly blamed the Tories.

The entire Dominion outside of  Quebec gave an adverse majority. By  carrolling the entire French vote of  Quebec by Tarte's disloyalty cries, with  the apparent approval of Laurier, they  carried all but eight seats in that province.

Galliher and McKane, two of  the aspirants for the representation of  this constituency, held a meeting here  on Tuesday evening and had a fair  audience. After about ten minutes  four cornered jangle between the candidates, and Mayor Pitts and Mr. Grimmett as to how the meeting should be  conducted, Mr. Grimmett took the chair,  and McKane spoke first, Galliher  closing. McKane is an Aggressive,  humorous speaker, while his opponent,  is smoother, and of a true lawyer type.  As there was little enthusiasm throughout it is hard to tell which had the  majority at the meeting.  J. W. BALMAIN,  Civil   Engineer,   Architect,   Etc.  '     P. O. Box 171).

Mc-  Arthur, Rossland : Galliher has made  a statement that McKane was chief  henchman and held the boodle when  lighting for Charles II. Mackintosh in  the last local election against the eight  hour law. I was appointed by the mee'-  inn to a6k you if this statement was  true. McKane denounces the same as  false and dastardly.

Pitts,   Sandon:,    I   have   no  personal  knowledge, as   I   was   not   in   British  Columbia for  months   before   and   not  until months after the local election.    I  am imfonned  that   McKane   was   also  away.   The telegram is   somewhat   indistinct, in meaning as received.     If   it  refers to McKane being chief henchman  here',   I am informed by creditable   per-  pons that lie, the henchman fought hard  for Mackintosh and had ample funds  at  his disposal for election purposes.

Stewart have been  arrested for crookedness, and the following appears as a report of the police  court in Brandon:  Carson being called the chief of police  narrated how Frank Taylor had been  arrested, and how he went with Taylor  the Liberal committee room toindentify  the man who had , given him a certain  voting ticket, but did not find him in the  rooms, but when outside Taylor pointed  out Carson and had him arrested.  Frank Taylor, of Dauphin, upon first  being interrogated insolently refused to  state where he came from and how old  he .was, but afterwards did so to the  Magistrate. He said he did not know  ' Carson, .hor could ho say when he met  him. An enquiry into Taylor's antecedents witli difficulty brought out that he  had been in the Portage police court on  the charge of rape, and though he claimed to be a "baker he would not name his  employers, and admitted that his name  was hot on the Brandon list. He  admitted getting a ballot in tho name of  Thomas Sherid'and gave it to the D. R.  0. and explained that though he was  sworn at the time he did not reflect upon  what he was doing.  Joseph Quinn was called as a witness  and recognized Taylor as voting in  'Sheriff's'name at'poll 16, and knew.he  was not the man, claimed to,he. Chief  Kirkcaldy deposed as the manner of the  arrestj and that Taylor had told him he  had voted three times. Mr. Matheson  drew attention to thei fact that prisoner  was a felf-confessed perjurer and asked  for highee bail upon which it was fixed  at two securities of $1,000.  Mr. T. D. M. Osborne called as witness  deposed as the manener of the arrest of  Taylor after he had voted as Sheriff, and  Mr. Cameron cross-examined.  Archie Stewart wa. charged upon  evidence of Rev. A. H. Cameron to have  asked for a ballot' under the name of  John Flynn, and voted. Mr. D. Monroe  testified that Stewart voted as'Flynn  whom he knew and Stewart, was not  .the man. ' ;  H. Scallion, "Winnipeg, was charged  with personating. Rev; Mr. Cameron  deposed that the accused came to vote  under the name' of Matthew Brandon  and he asked that-Scallion be, sworn,  but he refused the oath and so the ballot was refused. Mr.' Chas. Gardner  corroborated this evidence and the court  adjourned till Monday, but in consequence of the assizes the'cases were remanded.  Mr. Carson is out on hail, hut the  other prisoners not having money to  pay for their meals or tobacco, were  removed from the lock-up to Brandon  jail on Tuesday. 0 -.'���������'���������  Here is absolute proof Mr. Sifton's  friends hired outsiders to come in and  vote for absentees, even at the risk of  perjury, if necessary; and if the whole  truth was known, possibly with the  knowledge and consent of Mr. Sifton  himself. A pretence is made at passing  rigid legislation to secure honest elections, and the law makers themselves  in turn wink at the wholesale violation  of that legislation when they have  personal ends to serve. This would he  less matter in this particular instance  if Mr. Sifton did not po.se as the apostle  of purity itself, and if his friends did not  hold him up as a model of all that  pure and good in the inake-up of mortal  man. These are the things that sicken  many of Canadian politics, and are  driving many good men to care but little  who may be elected in general elections.  It is quite possible that for leaving the  Provincial House so soon, Hugh John  would have been beaten in any event,  but in a fair contest, it would have been  by a very much reduced majority.  POLITICAL QUIBBLING.  How politicians will wiggle and quibble when-before the electors   was   fully  illustrated by Mr. Galliher's utterances  as to the tariff at the meeting   here   on  Tuesday evening.    He says the   Liberal  declaration always was for "a tariff for  revenue only."    Now,   all  readers  of  even the Grit press know full well   Mr.  Laurier  has   often   said   the goal  was  "Free Trade as they had it in England,"  "Unrestricted Reciprocity," and all such  nostrums.   It is well known Mr. Blake  refused to further   co-operate with   the  Liberals of Canada, because   free trade  was their declared aim* and he knew   it  was impossible.   He declared so   in ' his  now celebrated address to the electors.of  West Durham.    In the face of   all   this  Mr. Galliher said  his  party  never   declared for more than "a tarifl'for revenue  only."   But even in this   he. is   as   far  from tlio truth as it is possible;   as'.,',the  presenttarifl'is   in   truth   higher   than  that of the   National   policy.     Import  from'''the States to-day  a similar suit of  clothes to the one you imported in 1895,  from boots to cap,  and   you   will   pay  more duties now than then.     Go  farming and import an outfit of   agricultural  implements and  you  will' also  find   a  higher duty.   Import from   any   paper  manufacturers you like   and   you   will  pay 35 percent, all around.     But .why-  go outside for   the  absolute   proof   Mr.  Galliher's statement was positively untrue when you have  tbe   proof   in   the  published records of   the   government  themselves.'   Last year   they  say   they  had in the i.eighborhood of five millions  of a surplus���������all this is taxation in tex-  cess of the demands of the country.     K.  tariff   for  revenue   raises   the   actual  requirements of the country only.   Last  year they raised, according to their own  reports, nearly five millions in excess of  that���������they actually,   needlessly   wrung  five millions from   the   pockets .of tlie  people, or $10 from every family of ten.  and yet they have a revenue tariff!     As  a matter of fact every dollar  raised   by  the customs houses is so much protection  to home producers, then when excessive  reyenuesjor surplusses as they are called,  are raised it is exeessive  taxation,   the  very thing for which the) so long and so  loudly blamed the Tories. ;  The Grit party may talk of the success  of their policy because of their, return to  office oh the 7th ult; but this is not the  CONS U MPT ION  begins and leaves off in thous-  O v  ands of people, who never suspect it.

After about ten minutes  four cornered jangle between the candidates, and Mayor Pitts and ��������� Mr. Grimmett as to how the meeting should be  conducted, Mr. Grimmett took the chair,  and McKane spoke first, Galliher  closing. McKane is   an   ng;ressive,  humorous speaker, while his opponent  is smoother, and of a true lawyer type.

In ,'prdc'r. to regulate to some extent  the importation   of   opium- into Hong  Kong- and to simplify the collection of  duties tile British Government several  years ago decided to place the  whole  business in the    hands    of    one man.  Realizing,   however,   the   tremendous  an<l| arbitrary power    that   could    be  wielded   by a single individual in such I  a position, it was'also decided that the (  office    should only   be   held one year  andjthat.no person should be allowed  to keepi it for   Jmoro    than    a    single  term. -    So it was announced that   the  'Government   was prepared ��������� to   accept  bids for the privilege.  Since that Lime the selection of an  "opium farmer,"; as he is called, has  become an annual event. The highest bid'generally-range's from (100,000  to' SOO.000 taels, according to the' prospects of the poppy crop for the year  and the condition of the market.    The  SUCCKBsfu  shroff, a polite native clork, who kicking1 their bare heels on the brick  conies to your door with a smile and a roads for several hours, hegin to think  bow.clad in a   long blue gown reach-  deep boiling-oil thoughts    about  'the  ing to his heels, and tolls you that hia  muster desires the honor of jour presence, at the WongTai Lo Restaurant  "to (modestly sup with him from a little xlislx or t.wp in token of yourt good  will."   '  The invitation needs no response.  Ihe shroff takes it for granted that  you would postpone atrip to Europe  to iget to that dinner, and he ia right.  There are no vacant seats when the  ceremonies   begin.  The Wong lai Lo Restaurant,' where  all these-affairs are given, is the Chinese, Deknonico's of Bong Kong. It  stands in the heart of the native quar-  foreign devils inside who are; yelling  "Annie Rooney," "Wo Won't Go Home  Till Morning," "Auld Lang Syne" and  other incantations, to their gods.

He himself employs ' times  the senior  naval officer of  the  several  junks  to  guard  his    business 'port.     /Here    and'   there    among the  against smugglers, but he must only!other    diners    are    wealthy    Chinese  use these boats for the purpose of ob- | merchants, their costumes in startling  tabling!    information.

Dozens of swift-  smugglers from the mainland of China i footed waiters at puce appear laden  and the revenue cutters. Pretty lit-j with silver ice buckets filled with  tie battles some of them are, too, and'champagne,   port,   sherry,   Erontinac  and a variety of, native wines.   A hundred young 'women, follow with trays  run   the   malefactors   down.     Nearly  ���������every week irithe year there is a smart  very useful in giving young British  middles arid junior naval officers their  first taste of sea fighting... ���������   ��������� .  The opium farmer has the sole control' of every pound of the drug  brought into Hong Kong, arid he generally makes from ������250,000 to ������300,000  of wine glasses and tumblers and in a  few/ moments every guest is supplied.  Immediately the affair develops into  a feast magnificent enough for an old  Roman    banquet   hall;     The   women,  clear profit in his year of office. The f imported from northern China for the  Government gets much more from him occasion, station themselves behind the  than it could secure if it attempted to J chairs of the guests and play stringed  collect the duties itself! and, moreover, (instruments, singing an almost ^ m-  gets it in a lump   sum    without, the jtihuous accompaniment. Flower    girls  bearing sweet blossoms of the lichee  enter and twine garlands across the  tables,  among chair backs, about  the  enormous amount of trouble and the  :,large force   of    officers    that    would  otherwise   be   necessary..    The opium  farmer's salaried men    watch   all incoming-boats, and  as it is ' a case, of  Chinaman against Chinaman very little, of the raw material gets past him..  iAt'the end of his term of office he  gives a great dinner    to   Government  officials, -newspaper men and the leading Chinese merchants of the colony.  This dinner is one of the  three great  events of the Hong Kong year.'     The  other two are the polo, championship  games and the sham   battle   between  the. troops iu the garrison.     As a mat- [  ter of fact, though natural jn-ide keeps ]  them from openly    acknowledging it,  the white people of Hong Kong look on  this unique dinner as by far the most  interesting affair in  the social calendar. ' '       ' ,,  When a Chinaman makes up his  mind to do a thing handsomely he  generally goes to the limit. The  opium farmer always makes his dinner, which is a sort of farewell to his  brief reign of Czar of the opium  smokers, something to be remembered  by his white friends. Indeed; ho  lays aside a large sum of  money, from 520,000 to $25,000, for the  banquet, aud always reckons it as a  legitimate item of expenso when ho  figures up his bid to the Government'  at -the beginning of tho year.  A :\veek before the close of hia term  of office the farmer nseds out his invitations. These are always verbal, 'delivered! to tho   lucky    recipient by    a j  flags and in the long lines of lanterns.  The tables are rapidly spread with  food and a strange mixture of Oriental  and-Occidental dishes it is. In addition* to roast beef, ham, chicken, turkey and mutton, are dozens of Chinese  delicacies, , curries of every kind,  sharks firis, jellied eggs, pickled fish,  baked hedge-boar, spitted rice birds,  drawn pelican meat, preserves of all  sorts . mangoose, mangostiries, paradise fruit and dozens of wonderful Chinese puddings.  There 'is no menu card and no  sequence of courses. You just pick  out .what you like and tackle it, irrespective of what your neighbor is  eating and regardless of whether you  begin with dessert or end with soup.  The dishes in which these,foods are  served are the most, magnificent and  costly samples of Chinese ware and  are intended as gifts for the guests.  When the dinner is over you can select  what you please among them. If you  go away early enough you are generally wise enough to do this. If you stay  til! things begin to get warm you are  apt to forget all about such a prosaic  thing as dishes. .  When midnight comes and the host,  the Governor and the Chief Justice  havo discreetly retired, the singing,  jubilating and toasting begin in earnest. As daybreak . approaches the  faithful  ricksha  men   who have  been  limliMi-I'oM'cll   .lliilii-s a   Viiliiiilile   Suggestion toilic. War Oflice.  It is, perhaps ,not generally known  that Baden-Powell, who has greatly,  distinguished himself in the Transvaal war, is not,only a soldior of unquestionable ability but a scientist  whose meteorological investigations  have been stamped.,with the official  approval of England's war ministry.  It was,through his influence that the  army abandoned; the cumbrous military balloon and adoi^tod in its stead  the more easily controlled and more  simply constructed kite.  As a result of tho experiments made  by the major-general In collaboration  with! his  brother officers,  it  was asserted that ii man could bo lifted several hundred feet in the air , without  the slightest danger and. without the  aid  of any gas receptacle. An apparatus strong enough to lift two  men  weighs hardly more than 100 pounds.  Kites can bo assembled and sent into  the aifiin five minutes.   Their descent  can be regulated by a parachute. Tho  cost  is hardly a fiftieth  part  of that  of   a balloon   ascension.  Eade^Powoll began his experiments  in 1803.   If he "has not magnified  tho  importance   of   the  results   which   he  has obtained, it isnot too much to hope  that,   before   tho Transvaal   war  has  seen its close, the utility of the kite as  ano instrument in modern warfare ..will  be assured.   If the truth must betold,  it is difficult to imagine a man suspended  2,000  feet  above    the  ground  from  a machine   which, is    theplay-  thing  of the winds, and which is only  too ready to plunge,down at any moment.   But  it   is  still  more difficult  to imagine     this same  man,  without  that feeling   of security so   essentia], to  accurate- observation,  spying upon an  enemy arid endeavoring to gather such  information as may be of value.  The proper sphere of the kite's usefulness would seem-to be in that field  of meteorological experiment in which  Franklin was a pioneer. That the kite  can also be used for military purposes,  signaling and the like, and especially  for taking bird's eye photographs by  means of automatic apparatus,, seems  likely enough;. But the lifting of a  man to the.dizzy height of a thousand  feet or more, so that he may leisurely study an enemy's position trans  cends the bounds of possibility;  BEOWIM GISLS  SHOULD   BE    BRIGHT,    CHEERFUL,  ACTIVE AND STRONG.

Rinse thoroughly with purb  water and then rub dry with a soft  cloth, Paint thus cleaned looks like  new, and does not receive such'injury  as from soap suds. This process of  cleaning is a good one to perform before  laying  varnisb over old  paint.  Worth Ten Doiiars a Bottle.  Any person who has used Nervil-  ine, the great pain cure, would not  bo without it if it cost ten dollars  a bottle. A good thing is worth its  weight in gold, and Nefviline is the  best remedy for all kinds of pain, It  cures neuralgia in fivo minutes;  toothache fn ono minute; lame back  at one application ; headache in a few  minutes ; and all pains just a������ rapid- i  ly.. ; .      ���������  "     I  Rosy clhceks, bright eyes, an elastic  step,    and a good" appetite,    are  tho  birthright off every girl.

Doctors  will  tell   them  that  they are anaemic,  or in other  words  that    their    blood us    poor, thin and  watery.

What  is needed is a medicine  that  will make  new;  rich, red blood,  strengths  .the  nerves     and   thus   restore the vigor,  brighbuoss and hopefulness  of youth.    Eor   this    purpose  no   other  discovery   in   the  annals   of  medicine    can"  equal    Dr.    Williams'  Pink Pills for  Pale People, and thousands   of  once   hopeless    gijrls     have  been made bright, active, aud strong  tlrrough their  use. Among those who  have been brought back almost from  the grave by tho uso of this modicino  is Miss M. C. ATarceuux, of St. .Lambert  do  Levis,  Que.    .Miss  Maroeaux  says; "It-gives ine the greatest pleasure   to spjak  of    the  benefit  J.-have  experienced from the use of. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.    Eor some years I  resided in Wisconsin with a relative,  where  I devoted   my   time    studying  English and music, intending to make  the teaching of the latter, my profession.    I  was  neveir  very strong,  and  my studies fatigued me much.  When  about    fourteen    I became very pale,-,,'  suffered from severe headaches,   and  weakness.    1 consulted a doctor, and  ucting on  his    advice,    returned .'.to  Canada.    The fatigue of the journey,  however, made me worse, and finally  Igot so weak  that I could not walk  without help.    I was/extremely pale,  my eye-lids   were   swollen, I had continuous headaches, and was so nervous;  that   the  least  noise    would set    my  heart    beating     violently.   I    almost  loathed food and my weight was  re-'  duced to ninety-five pounds. .-'-Neither,  doctor's   medicine    nor  anything else  that   I had.   taken ^irp   to> /that    time  seemed of the slightest benefit.   I was  confined to bed .for nearly, a year and  I   thought    that   (nothing  but  death  oould !end my sufferings.   Happily an  acquaintance of tmy father's  one day  brought  me  a box   of Dr.   Williams'  Pink   Pills,   and   urged    me    to     try  them.    I  did so,   and  I.thought   they/,  helped  ine some, and  my father got  more.   After I had used a few boxes  all  my  friends could    see they  were  helping .me,   and  by   the  time   I had  taken nine boxes I was enjoying better health than I had ever had in my  life    before,   and   had   gained fifteen  pounds; in   weight.     I   tell you    this      ^  out of gratitude so  that other, young   ,  girls who may bo weak    and    sickly,  mav 'know, the way    to    regain    their  health." ',  Girls who aro just entering womanhood are at the most critical period  of their lives. Upon tho care of  receive depends their future happiness. Neglect may mean' eithor an  early grave or a life of misery. If  mothers would insist that their  growing daughters use Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills occasionally, rich blood,  strong nerves, and good health  would follow. If y-our dealer does  not keep those pills in stock they  will be sent post paid at 50 cents a  box or six boxes for ������2.50 by addressing  the Dr.  Williams'    Medicino  I Co., Brockville, Ont. -U^n^-W^^���������Jv^-^.^^, ., T-PPSIW*^ w J^������ <J..W^   '^1������lA*rifc*r������(;  'SLY^u I'i ^*-"3l���������.^  !������*...-*-���������,Sfi/i**  I  FORMAL ENTRY OF PEKEf.'

The ^bronze  pillars were cracked and dusty. This'  was the reception hall for foreign. Min-j  isters, but evidently no Ministers had  called in recent months.  Here and there stood solemn groups  of eunuchs, passively horrified at the  spectacle of foreign troops marching  through the sacred grounds without,  so much as a bow. Almost hidden behind a stone column was a Chinaman of some .rank and an officer, as  his olothing' indicated. He was deeply moved/, apparently; for he looked  straight ahead and now and,', then  brushed big  tears from his eyes.  Diverging at last from the straight  line it had been following the column  made diagonally across a huge paved  oourt to a gate whore a eunuch stood  with outstretched hand pointing tho  ���������way; like a statue. This gate led  down to a long, narrow passageway,  which seemed to be the main street  of the inhabited portion of the royal  city. Through open doors on our left  we could see courts similar to those  we had loft and closed buildings on  top of tho various little hills reached by the sets of marble stairs. There  was one feature of each1 of those stairways, by the way, which made one  linger, admire and wonder.

Some before leaving had  a-good look at the richly bejewelled  clock; some saw the table of solid cloisonne and others had a squint at a  little German made piano.

THE MINING   REVIEW���������Saturday, December i, 1900.  Famle Coke.  1 '  Tho output of  the   coal  mines  near  Ferule ia about 1,100 tons daily and the  300 coke ovens  now   in   u'bo   turn   out  obout 450 tons of coke per day.   The 60  new ovens will add about 90 tons a   day  to the coke supply, and this additional  quantity will, it is , estimated,   furnish  all the coke that   the   Boundary   creek  smelters will   use   until   their   furnace  capacity ahall  have increased, and, too,  any extra consumption at the  Granb}"  smelter at Grand Forks,  to which   five  cars of coke a day are now   being   sent.  Later, the company's new coal mine   at  Michel, east of Fernie, will be in shape  to pat out some 700 tons daily,   but   at  present it is only adding 100 tons a day  to the total, the country   has   available  for shipment.     Some time   ago,   when  the provincial demand for coal and coke  was comparatively small, a_ market was  sought    south    of    the    international  boundary line, with the result that   the  whole of the output of   the   company's  mines could now easily bo placed across  the   line.       For  instance,   the   Great  Northern railway company is  prepared  to take 40 cars of coal per day,  but   the  Crow's Nest company is not at "present  able to supply one-tenth of that   quantity and at the same time keep its British Columbia customers supplied, while  the   railway   and   steamboat   lines   in  Kootenay cannot at present be supplied  with any coal from Fernie.     The   company is also restricting its shipments to  Winnipeg and other points east of British Columbia to actual current contract  requirements and is not  accepting any  new   business   from   that   direction.���������  Greenwood Miner.
