Any man  who,does not want to accept thc wage  offered is not linked to take it, nor are  the owners making any effort to urge,  him to accept or to prevent him from  doing better elsewhere, For thcwine  reason such men must not interfere  with the acceptance of the work by  others, when thdy decline it. The law  permils tho organizing of labor as well  as capital 'associations; but neither  one 'has any legal right' to interfere  with the free and full liberty of the  other is to employment or occupation.  ro Tfl  RM Lifl  He Says He Will  a  Wee  Be There Within  k.

Another   Batch of Men Arrives   for the  Payne   Mine.   . ������������������ "  On  iMonday  niPrning last lS;.inbre  men arrived ironi thc cast and arc now  at work at the Payne, making some S3  employed there altogether.   They were  brought in by  Mr. A. W. Wright, who  brought   24  to Kaslo   and  there   six  "fell by the wayside-."   All these circumstances   should go   to   show, the  bosses of the.union that they are rapidly losing  their  hold���������in short  that  their usefulness is gone.   A great deal  of public sympathy isi'elt for the men  who would like to gp to work,, but are  under the influence of the machine of  .union. These arrivals of men ought,  however, to convince those deserving  and industriously inclined men that  the unions are powerless to stop the  operation ��������� pf the mines by. new men,  when they themselves relusli to work.  The proceedings in the police court in  the Hagler case are evidence that men  coming in, employed to go to work,  oannot be iuterferred  with,   and it is  only right   it should not, be allowed.  ���������  Prorn'th'e mrtjprityof the mouths of  mi'norsiybu will^liear these"words. "Ex-  clude.the aliens."   There is  no tdoubt  but that if a. number of 'preseiit'iiliens'  had been .excluded some  time ago,' it  would have beeii better  for the  country ;   but that; does not .establish ivn'fe.-  cedent for the,future.

The  government;ought.-.also to rigidly   exclude,' .and   at, present drive   out   all  those .who ';desire -si 111 ply    to .'make  what, they' can;  hoOk,of by crook,  and  th'cn dig out no matter  whence  they  come.    What the dountry wants  is respectable,'law-abiding settlers, whether-  Americans,   Swedes, Eroiich, etc., etc.  The country is.here ; the resources', are  here and  we want  thc desirable permanent settlers.   It is always  assumed  that any, man who .-purchases property  or takes 11   permauont Hituatiou' is a  permanent settler, and if they.are desirable people,,!ho country wants all it;  can get.of them.  Sent Up for Trial.  As most of our readers already know  Mr. ilaglef was committed for trial at  ,the next iNelson assizes by Judge Lilly,  on Saturday last, for his par.-/in the  trouble at the Payne on the'14th.of  January. After Mr. Hand completed  his evidence, on the previous evening;  Messrs. Hughes aiid Daly were sum?  nioned for the prosecution, and- Mr.  McLean and others for the defense.  The evidence of-ail the witnesses was  in the main the same so a committal  by the judge was theonly course open,  and the.defendaiit gave bonds for 5*1000  to appear at'the assizes..

York, Jan. 30.��������� Montague  White, -who was 'consul-general of- the  tip tilth African republic 111 London; until th 3 outbreak of the war, contributes  an article to the February number of  the North American Review, which  may be regarded as a statement, from  the Boer point of view, of the inllu-  enees and forces which brought about  hostilities between the South African  republics aud Great Britain. The circumstances commonly held to be responsible for tlie present situation lie  merely glances at. Among these he  points to the (liscontpnt of the British  element in Johannesburg,'the clumsy  diplomacy of Mr. Chamberlain, the  activity of Mr. Rhodes, wliom, he describes as "a- disappointed capitalist  politician who hail ruined his career as  a statesman by an act of mad foil} ,and  who was burning to be revenged on  those be had bitterly wronged." In bis  opinion there were three immensely  powerful, but unavowod.'forces, namely.* greed of gold, lust of empire, and a  tnirst for revenge. Mr. White devotes  very particular attention to one influence, which has commonly; beau  overlooked, namely the growth of personal rule as embodied in the high  commissioner of South Africa.

IN THE MORNING ������������������  You feel better of your sick headache  or bilious spell if you have taken a  Laxa-Livor Pill the night before. These  little fellows work while you sleep  without gripe or pain.  Our view on the labor situation is  this: When there are four men looking  for >vork whore there are openings for  but three, labor is at the mercy ol capital, and legislation ought to be enforced to protect- labor.. It is then that  labor should have public sympathy, as  it will not get justice.- When, however, capital has four openings for  three laborers, capital ''a' at the mercy  of labor,. as the latter will combine for  unwise arid "unfair ends. Our readers  can one and all tell which is which in  the Slocan today.  'The News-Advertiser (Minister Cotton's paper) says strong petitions have:  .been sent in, by the owners'against the,  eight-hour law and "equally strong  ones" for its retention by the miners.,  therefore, the 'law will bo retained,'  This,is so.like Roger���������always go with  the votes no matter what may. be involved. It' the -miners' petitions are no  stronger than'thc owner-s', and Cotton,  says they are only ''equally strong,"  why should the latter, fopr.'sen'tuig 113  financial interests, only votes, have  preference over the financial uuerests!*  Tliat is the question for Mr. Cotton to  answer.     .  -i ��������� -sti^a��������� '���������  .

Non-consistent was the buzz  of the Holyhead trains which now intermittently    steals   across   the    f'iur  and a half miles of estuary, and only  the  weird  cries of  the  gulls and  tho  shrill whistle of tho curlews broke tho  sombre silenoo  which  brooded beyond  the  quays. ���������  The d-eaolate outlook but served to  accentuate the busLle of the thriving  little port.

Every few yards there was  un inn, fourteen have .van.shed within  living memory ; so that an almost continuous stream of l'ght was shed from  the windows, and, where the snow was  vet untrodden, stained it with ruddy  patches.  The tumult  which nightly  attended  the  arrival  of  the London   coach  had  subsided,   and   a quaintly-rigged  Dublin packet,  which had just discharged  its .cargo,  rocked  lightly at  anchor a  few  yards  from  the shore;  while,  by  thu side  of ono of  the  red sandstone  wharves, another packet was being rapidly filled  with merchandise, preparatory to'sailing with the morning tide.  Several   post-chaises,   bearing  wealthy  passengers, who preferred noi  to wait  for  the early morning  coach,  hud set  off, with much cracking of the postil-;  lions' whips, for West Chester, as the I  ancient cathedral-town   a dozen miles  up   the   river   was   generally   termed.

Several passers-by loitered to gaze  at the fascinating picture thus pre-  ented to their view; and on the roadway a straggling band of urchins'were  attempting to march in' military or-  dor under the command of a slim boy  of some ten years, who, by a broken-  pointed cutlass, was gallantly leading  thorn on to "fight the French." Notwithstanding their valour,'and the  Bnatches of patriotic songs, which disr  solved'at brief intervals into shrill  cheers, they did not court the shadows  .and never wandered far from ihe lighted portion of the Parade; for at that  time the name of the arch-enemy of  mankind had given place to "Bonaparte " as a terror to small boys, and  angry parents had threatened them  with a sudden Visitation of the latter  bo often that their youthful minds invariably associated him with ,the powers of darkness.

CHINESE WAY OFJ30LNG THINGS.  Lord Charles Beresford narrated to  the Institution of Mechanical Engineers some amusing incidents of his experiences in the land of the mandarins. In the arsenal at Shanghai,  where he noticed a Krupp gun cleverly fitted with an Armstrong breech-  piece, it was "explained toliim that the  operations had been rendered necessary by an accident, the blowing off  of ;:(:ho   original. breech-piece   by     the  of inrl,-T7i,i���������Yi���������    f' ���������.--:-:--.--  -.

Tiny  gold    earrings  adorned the lobes of his ears, and his  small dark eyes were apparently perpetually twinkling, with good humour.  He walked with tho lumbering tread of  a ploughman, and the most,casual observer would at once set him down as  a French peasant.    He was accompan-  ��������� led by a tall and very erect lady, much  ; younger;    than     himself     with    well-  ���������iioulded features of a somewhat aquiline and melancholy cast, and expres-  dve    . dark     eyes.

The new-comer might havo sat for  the portrait of a Viking. Hi wore his  sixty , years lightly, and his tawny  beard was unlfccked with gray, while  his tall figure was erect, and he stepped out across the sands with the suppleness of a youth. "John" was tho  name given to him by his .sponsors,  but the alias of "Ould Uncle" had been  welded to him in I"Vis early 'boyhood,  ejid had stuck to htm. as' only a Park-  gate nickname can.  Dark as It was, he and the Frenchman recognized each other, and ihe  Iattevr held out his hand with an uneasy laugh. "Uncle," howevair, bru lied by, exclaiming breathlessly, "Out  of the road, Froggy ; out of the road.

", '  ln another place, being asked where  the front;-, of a battery of GO-ton muzzle-loading  guns   was,   the   mandarin  pointed in 0110 direction and the guns  in  another.      Whon  this was  pointed  out   to   him,  ho  said,      "Yes,  I think  there has been a mistake."     The guns  wore arranged  in echelon, so that the  men working the foremost gun must  inevitably    have  been    kiilod  by   the  discharge  oif   the  one  behind,  and  so  on   through       the       battery.        Lord  Charles'    demonstration of    this self-  evident   fact   left .the  mandarin   perfectly   unconcerned,   and   he   only   replied. "Yes, some men would no doubt  be  killed,   but   the  shot .would   reach  the enemy."     In yet another placo he  found     that   the    gun    was  actually  loaded in the magazine, and he pointed  out in    remonstrance    that if    there  wero any carelessness in sponging the  gun after firing,  the magazine would  infallibly  be    blown  up.      Tho  mandarin in charge gave mo a slap on the  back  and   said,  "You  are  one  of  the  cleverest   men   lever  met.    The   year  before   last   we   did   fire   these Iguns,  and we blew up the magazine, just as  you have said.   J will show you where  it   was."      The  mandarin  added   that  he   could   not     remember  how   many  men were killed, but he believed that  it  was  fifty."      Jin  a powder  mill he.  pointed out the danger of having the  windows open lest: dust should get into the grinding   wheel, and so produce  an explosion���������the very  thing, he was  told,   that   had   happened   to  tho  previous building whic~h the present one  that undertaken by Prof. W. G. Miller of the Kingston School of Mines,  who, was engagod for the work by the  Provincial Governments during the  seasons of 1897 and 1898. H'ds srwial  report appears Ln the second part of  the-Bureau of Mines report for 1899,  together with other papers treating of  corundum and embodying some, important facts as to the deposits ofthe metal in Ontario, the demand for it  abroad, and the prospscts for its successful development as a commercial  product.  . ��������� "��������� ' WHERE IT IS FOUND.  ' The principal corundunu-bearing bolt  runs from northeast to south-west  through the counties of Renfrew, Hastings and Bali burton, and thore aro  also extensive areas in Peterboro and  Frontenac. The total area of the main  band where the metal is found is about  3C0 square miles. Tho formation of  much of the rock beinefknown as nep-  heline syenite. This also yields considerable, quantities of aluminum, a  metal'greatly ,in demand in the United States. Whether tho aluminum present in the corundum-bearing rock can  be profitably extracted depends entirely upon whether some further reduction', in tlitS cost of the process can be  effected. '  ITS'VALUE  IN  MANUFACTURING.  Corundum! is mainly of value as an  abrasive in connection with steel # and  iron    manufactures���������being . especially  well adapted for saw sharpening, roi I  grinding, spindle grinding, and surface  work on .'hardened steel. La.rge quantities! of abrasives aro'used in thc factories of the United States,  the principal' sources of the'corundum' supply,  outside, of tho domestic'product being  India and     Russia.    It is difficult  to  get accurate statistics as (o tho yield  of the American mines, as the producers are averse to giving such information.   Much   of-  the  American 'corundum is produced in North Carolina, but  tho. supply  is small, and though   prospecting   is   being   actively   carried   on  in that State, thero has not been much  success in the discovery of new deposits.   English manufacturers have some  difficulty  in  obtaining adequate  supplies of corundum of good quality.  QUALITY OF ONTARIO CORUNDUM.  The Ontario rook; from nil the facts  which  are  procurable,  appears  to   be  fully equal in the percentage of yield  to any with which it will have to compete. T*".e yield of the'Indian rooks i:.  very low, being but S.fi per cent.  Al United States report'gives 15 per  cent, as the average from one vein,  and the material of a larger deposit is  vaguely said to aye-rage probably 10  to '15 per cent, of corundum. The quality of the Ontario .article is said to he.  superior to that of the Indian corundum, and a scr'es of experimental tests  between the Hastings County metal  and American corundum and carborun-  duiml made by the Bart Emery Wheel  Co. of Haml'lton, fully sustained Hir  high expectations formed as to the  Ontario product.

CONVULSIONS.  The nervous systeim of infants is  much more irritable than that of older  people; that Is to say, it is oxcitod  to undue action by various stimulants  which in tho older child or Iho adult  would havo no 'similar effect. For  example, many fevers begin in adults  with ������ chill, but in infants with a convulsion. Itt is this fact that makes  spasms so common, andi for the most  part of comparatively so little signi-  fianco,  in  babies. -   - .- ���������  After the second or third year the  nervous system acquires mora equilibrium, and then a convulsion is a more  serious matter, and indicates the probable existence of some nervous disease' in the child.  .Medical writers usually divide convulsions in young children into febrile,  reflex and toxic, according as they  aro indicative of the beginning of a  fever, or aro tho result of some irritation of the skin or mucous membranes,���������as in children who aro cutting teeth or who have worms,���������or  are caused by tho action of some  poison circulating in the blood. This  poison, may be introduced from without, either in tho milk or in the air,  or it may be formed within the body  as  a  result   of  indigestion.  In the trcatmentcof a baby in convulsions the first thing, of course, is  to find the cause and to remove it,  if possible This is, however, usually  the" iasi thing done, for by the time  tho physician arrives almost all the  domestic remedies' have usually beon  tried. It is moreover not always possible, to find tho true cause, or oo' remove it when fouud, and then the  treatment must be directed to the  convulsion itself.  At the beginning of tho spasm the  child's clothing should be examined Lo  make sure that there are no pins  scratching it, and no strings tied too  lightly. It should bo taken into a  large, airy room, or out-of-door if the  weather is suitablo. A warm bath is  often efficacious. If the spasms have  come on soon after eating, especially  ���������if the baby is bottle-fed, vomiting  should be induced by tickling the  throat, or by warm salt and water  if  the child  can  swallow.  If the convulsions are duo to indigestion or to worms, as they often aro  or to teething, as they seldom are, the  doctor's task will be an easy one; if  they are due to a beginning fever, thoy  will subside as the fever develops; if  they are due to actual disease of the  nervous system, they will probably recur at intervals in spite of tho best  of   treatment.  HOW TO RAISE PANSIES.  There is probably not a child who  does not love the pansy, and the majority of grown people regard It  with much favor. We see pansies  igrown in people's door yards, eiven  when no other flower is cultivated  thero. 'The one groat reason for itB  Xiopularity is the ease with which it  may be.grown, and the plenteous returns it gives for the care-spent upon  it." Pansy plants are raised by getting good seeds and sowing in shallow  boxes im the house, or hot beds out  of doors. In the house, seeds may bo  started iin February, March or April.  Fill the box with fine prepared dirt,  brtuging it nearly to the top. ": This  soil need not be so very rich, good  garden loam will answer very well.  Mako the top '��������� level and smooth and  '.'���������acatler-tho seed as evenly as possible.  When this is done, sift some soil .over  them until they are covered about a  quarter of an inch in depth. Next  give a light sprinkling and then wetia  piece of spongy paper, or brown wrap-,  ping paper, and put over the top of  the box, set in a sunny window free  from drafts, and Ln about eight days  expect to see the first tiny shoots appear. Do not pour water over 'the  soil, but let all moisture, be given  through- the paper, which should bo  frequently moistened.  By May the plants ougnt to be largo  enough to be set out of doors. Have  the ground where they are to bo  placed' shaded deop and mellow,  and plenty of well decayecL manure  worked in, as pansies delight in a rich  soil. Select a cloudy day for sotting out tho plants, and put (hem  about eight inches apart each way,  firming them down well. By July  they will bo in blossom and will continue to flower till lato in tho fall:  In the meantime, work tho soilevery  week, give the plants all tho water  they can drink. Keep the blossoms  well picked off, so that no seed pods���������  which take tho strength from the  plants���������can form, and give fertilizer if  it should.be needed. The best fertilizer, is liquid manure, i������ it is _not too  strong. To my. mind_ ,,a situation  which receives tho benefit of the sun  till noon and is shaded for the remainder of the day.is an ideal place  for a pansy bed. There is really nothing complex about growing these  winsome little flowers, and the slight  effort on the grower's part will .bei  more  than  compensated.  salt.

A few moments before the  serving hour, out the celery into inch  pieces and pour a mayonnaise ovor it.  In making this.salad, a dainty: way is  to shred finely the inch lengths.  Chickens, lamb, beef and even fish are  often minced and added to tho salad,'using only ono kind/ of tho meat.

Boil a few  minutes, pour over tho celery and cabbage.  Celery Sauce���������This is often served  with chicken. Wash tho celery and  cut in short lengths, simmer for thirty minutes, allowing a teacup of cold  water to each head of celery. Melt 1  tablespoon butLer, stir into it rapidly  an equal amount of flour, then add  the celery and a teacup of milk. Stir  "without ceasing" until it reaches tho  boiling pount, then add a seasoning of  salt  and pepper.   ���������  ���������Celery au Gralin.���������Prepare the.celery in the usual way, wash, scrape and  cut into small piecss. ��������� Simmer until  tender.

Guarded by a handsomo dog that had  been her constant companion in life,  the dead body of an aged lady was  found, on her doorstep/in Philadelphia  a few days ago. Tho poorly-clad woman  was noticed by scores of passers-by  as" she sat on ���������the step, with hsr head  leaning , against tho door,.but they  supposed she had become weary and  had fallen asleep as she sat in-the sun.  She Was dressed in shabby black, with  a worn fur cape thrown around her  shoulders, and a white veil.ovor her  face made a queer contrast with her  otherwise black attire. Women and  children on their way to the nearby  grocery store noticed the queer, pair  old woman and dog���������seated together,  but nd one's suspicions were aroused  by the woman's long rest. '���������'������������������.  Finally the wife of a baker, across  the street, saw, the handsome black and  white dog lick the woman's hands and  face and then 'give a dismal howl as  his caress was not returned. Fearing  that' the old woman /was ill aud could  not rise, from the'step, she started to  investigate. As she approached she  was met by a threatening advance  from the dog, and .she reached the  step only after many'kind words to  the animal. Shaking the old 'woman's  shoulder, failed to arouse her, and  when her arm was raised it was found  to be cold and stiff. She dropped.it  with a ���������scream, and notified the neighbors. A' smnll crowd collected around  the old woman, but the dog.kept them  at bay. Every advance was met by  a- snarl and a policeman was balled.  His approach was likewise- resented  by the faithful animal,'but the patrol  wagon was called and the woman's  body was placed in it in spite of the  dog's protests and growls. When his  mistress was put in the wagon and he  was left out he howled and barked and  ran wildly about, but refused to be  caught. Tho woman was first taken  to the hospital, whore it was found she  had been dead some timo, and was  then removed to the Morgue, where  thc Coroner's post-mortem showed she  had succumbed to an attack of heart  disease.  The dog followed the patrol wagon  to the hospital, and evidently thought  waited outside until noon, when he returned dejectedly to the house again,  his  mistress   remained    there,   as   ho  While no one seemed to know the  dead woman, she was a familiar sight  on, the streets, however, as police and  citizens had seen her every morning  with the dog.

Statistics show that the demand for  structural steel is increasing faster  than the manufacturers can increase  the output. This is in spite of the enormous advance made In the .price'of  steel   within   the. twelvemonth.  The fact is a most hopeful ono in  many- ways, wholly apart (from its industrial significance. It means that we  are building better than we ever did  before���������not only that we are using  steel frames for our skyscrapers, but  that even in the construction of school-  houses nnd shops and dwellincs wo are  using steel trusses where ten years  ago- we used wooden floor beams, and  steel rafters iustead of wood, This creates a better socurity against fire. It  means also, and not less importantly,  the salvation of our" forests. For not  only is7wobd now largely excluded  from- the structural parts of buildings,  but even as trimoning it is rapidly  falling into disfavor: Window-frames,  window-sashes, and even doors and  door-casings of steal are now so perfectly made and so cheaply that they  are rapidly replacing wood, as wire  and tile have replaced lath, and marble and mosaics have taken their ancient placs as flooring. With a little  further development in this diiection  we shall bo able to check the denudation of forests and protect our rivers  from flood on the one hand -,nd  drought on the other, and theso are  the noblest uses of forests.

What has always been regarded as  a fundamental truth���������that every piece  of wood once formed part of a tree,  great or small���������has been shattered to  bits. Science Is to blaino for it.  Wood is now made ; it does not grow.  A *'omposite'"of materials goes into one  end of a factory and comes out of  tho other end in boards of all sizes.  It is wood that can be sawed, nailed,  screwed or jwlished. But it will not  burn. Nor are there any knots in it.  i Another peculiarity of this manufactured wood is that it will not shiink  warp or buckle. It is like stone in  those respects, and it is just about  as indestructible. Moreover, it can ba  polished until it takes ou the shimmer  and gloss of elaborately treated mar<-  hie and the polish remains for all time.  Some lime in the far future the  moan of the alarmist about the destruction of the forests will perhaps  be realized. But the people of thoso  times will not'suffer much. What the  forests do for humanity after innumerable years of growth the factory  now does with a few whirls of its machinery.  How, is artificial lumber mado? The  process is simple and its cheapness  more than rivals its simplicity. That  is where science again conies to the  front.  MADE FBOM  A  WASTE  PRODUCT.  It is made from straw, in the form  of a long-fibru  atraw  boaid.    Hiirelo-  foi'tc it has been le^arded as valueless.  But   it   forms  the  basis   of   manufactured  wood.   This  product  is   treated  witn chemical baths, producing a ma-  . terial,  wuich has .ill of  tne dcsiraule  ' equalities   of   wood   and   others   which  j the natural product does not [lossess,  The bas.c material���������the long fibre  straw board���������costs'" practically nothing, and tne supply is unlimited. Tne  process of converting it 'into artificial  luinuer is, as has been said, a simple  one and the cost of thc product is  therefore small.  The utility of the artificial lumber  has already been demonstrated in  ruany duierenl ways. In .the first  place the material is fire-proof, is a  uon-conductor of heat and cold, and  being .air-tight, neither warps uor  splits.  ITS   ADVANTAGES  IN    CONSTRUC  TION.  Employed as atop flooring (and as a  ceiling,  a room  so constructed is not  only fire-proof, but is free from cracks,  w.trmj in winter and cold in summer,  ] il.ial cannot penotrato it, neither can  1 cold.  I    The material  deadens all reverberation.   It  gives  back no echo. In public halls  where it has  been  used  the  ���������acoustic advantages  have beeu multi-  I pl.ed  three fold. '  ; It has been found by builders that  the employment of artificial lumber  in the wall construction of office buildings and dwellings obviates the use  of lath, and plaster. Boards of the material are xvinned directly to the stud-  dingY: '������������������'.������������������    ' ' '   .'���������''���������  This not only permits of a saving  in labor and material, and also economizes in space, but.makes a compact  wall that, is considerably .stronger arid  more durable than if made of ordinary'material.     '���������      , Y .,"-.'  As" a building material artificial  lumber has oven more uses than natural wood, because of .its many peeu-,  liar qualities and its cheapness. But  in other fields of commerce its uses are  even  more  numerous. ,  The material is made in such relief  designs'and colorings as the builder  may desire for walls and ceilings, and  at a cost of from one-thi.rd to one-  half ot other decorative materials. The reliefs in artificial  lumber are also much Sharper in outline, as the colors are laid on beforo  the   embossing   is   done.  In durability artificial lumber, rivals mahogany andoak,'and is equally  susceptible of beautiful finish.' The  process ot manufacture permits its being made in exact imitation, of all tha  finer ornamental woods, also of marble   and  of  onyx.  In addition to its being available m  thei making of all kinds of furniture,  it is used in tho manufacture of piano  cases, of embossed panels, and medallions, for advertising purposes, for picture frames, blackboards, store fixtures of all kinds and packing boxes.  In fact it is available tor every use  that  wood  is emjMbyed.  In the interior, finishing-of exptinsivo  railroad' cars it has been employed to,,  great   advantage.      :  HE WAS VERY PIOUS.

It may be (hat Mr.  ,.'���������'   Green felt arid believed at the lime as  '���������:.'  be spoke; but.surely the results, of (,he  ,'Jast.few daj-s will so change his .mind  ;��������� ..that he will yet endeavor to correct his  -���������mistakes. ��������� If there was nothing more  .th'an.tbe assembl}' of union men at the  7  the premises of the"Payne, where they  -,    iiiew.they were;iiot  wanted, and,the  language credited to Mr. Hagler in the  .. itelegram, it should, have  assured Mr.  Green  that the miners  were overstepping  what he alleges is their prerog'n-  ���������   i tive, "moral FUii'sion/'ivhicli called for  -public iiiterl'ereneo.      Mr. Green well  ..knows that;.the declaration of the secretary, of the miners union  "that, if-it  i was dirty warfare the owners  wanted,  ihey would give them: all  lhey wanted  . ���������  of it" meant more than tbe moral suasion, lie felt disposed to justify.  ; We repent that   that   circu'mstance  alone   wais   suflicient   to  justify. Mr,  Hand's telegram, but the evidence'at  the  police court,   tbe other day when  Hagler appeared  under arrest,  settled  ��������� tlie matter with all doubting minds, no  doubt including   Mr. Green.     It  was  there shown   that  he   used language,  wholly unprovoked, towards Mr. Hand  nnd other members of tho mine owners'  nssociiitioii and their families, that no  one but the lowest bred men would use  to one another.   The public will rcacl-  ���������*ily admit that 99 out of any 100 of other  -men would have struck him for it, and  Ms both sides had arms a conflict would  ���������'.���������have ..followed   that   would   certainly  Yhnve ended  111 bloodshed.    In short, it  was only owing to Mr. Hand's co'olne'cs  iuid presence of mind that murder was  ' '''averted.   Does that show or does it not  that police protection was called for ?  In fact the man must be indeed very  credulous who will conclude that  Mr.  ' Green was really in tamest iu what lie  1 said himself when he imputes  that if  there is strife at .any time it will come  from   the owners.'   Will  the  owners,  when   hiring   outsiders    or   bringing  ���������them in, send for tlie minors' union to  contest   their right,   to   do  so?     One  would think from' Mr. Green's remarks  thoy will, and that as ii consequence of  .the meeting of the two elements strife J  will insue.   The most of people,,',,;h6\v-  ever, excepting Mr. Green, will believe  :thatYthe'owners.' in���������bringing in  nieii  will be as careful as possible not'to advise the union".in (I'clviuic'e iso tliat possible collisions may be avoided ; an.d.if  at any time they do, occur it ..will be  because   of  visits YfrqrhY union, men  .where their presence is. not solicited,  i   Mr. Gi-ecn-. says the union  will- use  "moral suasion" to i prevent. incoming  men from   going to  work.

During the last  few months  the.Payne lias spent ������12,-  000 in  fitting up a.-c'omuiodations  for  the men, . and   those who know   Mr..  Hand best,, excepting m.en Of Hnglcr's'  class, have nothing, but commendation  for his. course throughout.   In the face  of strong opposition in  the :minc owners' association,'., he''was 'instrumental  in   bringing   about   the   negotiations  with the union that  have taken.place,  and   only   abandoned  the  hope of  a  settlement  that way when he saw  in  the correspondence of the latter, a? tho.  public saw, that good i'aiUi  was never  intended.  If Mr. Green wants  to learn  further  as to which side   was the aggressor in  the trouble to which itho telegram referred, sill, he wili.have  to do is to'attend the next assi/.e^coiirt in Nelsdii; at  which' Mr. I'laghr's ease, will be tried.  Tn dismissing the subject  there are a  few facts   to-which wo desire  to  call  Mr. Green's attention, aud a knowledge  of these may-be of some service to. him  in.this connection in the;future; and at  the same time not without  a lesson to  the miners,  ancl. they  are these : That  the mines'in the Slocan will be worked,  and   that without any further conferences with the union ; that good wages  will be paid to  good men,   and  lower  rates  to men not so expert;   that the  owners will retain  the management in  their own hands, and not transfer it to  thc unions, nnd that no discrimination  Our neighbor moralises, on.the situ-  'itt-ion thus,:       7 '���������  7 "The -laws of this'country encourage  thct organization of capital 'for almost  any ipur'pose the iapplica 11 ts desire.

What- surprises one most, in this  labor trouble, is that tho newspapers  that, say the mines ought to pay thc  men $3.50 a day because they are able  to do it, have not several "prices for  their advertising and job work, making  the wealthy people pay/high rales he-  cause they are able to do it. If the  rule is good in mining it, ought to be  equally good in printing. "  ��������� ,  When the owners can get whatever  ore they want out of the hills and  .whatever prices they want for it; when  * the merchant a can prevent anyone  from buying a dollar's worth of goods  outside and get what thoy want for  their goods at home regardless of quality, thc men should get whatever wages  they ask regardless of their capability.  The full demands of the ono have as  good a right to bp. satisfied as those of  the other.

But  then I liare'to plead as an excuse that  he ought not to ho so indiscreet as  to confide in a struggling journalist  w.ho is ever on the lookout for1 interesting "copy."  An introduction is necessary. Suffice it to say that Conyers, who is an  artist, had entered my diggings on the  day in question after having been absent on a sketching tour in the' south  of ireki.nd lor a little more than fifteen months. -Ho camo with the extraordinary announcement that he  was going lo be married to an Irish  gir,1,���������Kathleen O'NeiL by name. I became shockingly interested. My eager  quesliouing elicited the following  facts:���������  Hri had first come across Miss O'Neil  In the vicinity of Lismore, it appears.  Curiously enough, the cause of his  original interest in her was an expression of haunting sadnes3 which was  ever on her face ; nor had ho known  her long before he experienced an enthusiastic desire to havo a hand in  clearing the sadness away. But how  could he learn the cause ? By good  fortune he was permitted to hear the  story from her own lips, although she  had spoken to no man before about  It.  "My    father,"    she  said,       "is    insane."  ."Good heavens I"  He had never entertained that possibility.  No wonder tho poor girl was sorrowful.   But how had it happened?  "We lived until a year ago in-Dublin," she answered. "My father was  a merchant there. He had had a hard  struggle, but at last success came.  Not that his balance at the bank was  sufficient of itself ; but if he could sell  his premises and connection ho could  retire, which was what he desired, for  ho was growing old. Fortunately, a  purchaser was soon procured in an  Irish baronet, Sir Patrick O'Connoll  by name who wanted it for the purpose of establishing his younger sons  in business. An agreement was sign=.  ed. Sir Patrick could not pay cash  down, his money was tied up; but' he  would have sufficient free in six  mouths' time. He, however, proposed  to lodge wiLh my father as security in  the meantime, the lamiiy diamonds,  valued at ������00,000���������father, you must  understand, had an honorable name.  "The pity of what followed. It was  at the place of business, on aY certain  afternoon, that the jewels were handed over, and father, for one night only,  locked them in his eschitoire, intending next day lo take them ta the bank.  Alas I the self-same night the premises were burnt to the ground���������nothing-was rescued. The sudden shock  turned my father's brain. As for  moilier and I, Yafter we had paid to  the baronet money equivalent to the  value of his diamonds, which the insurance, banking account, etc, enabled  us to do, we had just sufficient left to  live in simplicity. So we came'down  to this quiet place. We are allowed!to  keep father, because the form of his  disease comes under the heading of  melancholia. He is not dangerous, but  he does not know    even mother   and  Suoh is a. brief outline of the sad  story.  Well, this life, thoy say, is made up  of curious chances. As Conyers was  nearing hi3 "diggings" afterward, who  should he run up against but his old  chum, Charley Man ton, who is confidential agent in the employment of  Gray & Helmsley of Lincoln's Inn  Fields.  "Hallo 1 What are you doing down  this way, Charley ?" shouted Conyers.  "Searching for a needle in a haystack, my boy. I want Daniel O'Neil,  supposed to bo residing in this quar-'  ter, formerly a merchant trading in  Dublin. 1 say, though, what makes  you look so excited 1"  Conyers took his arm and led him  to his "diggings," which were conveniently near.  "iNo\v, I know where to find Ml-.  Daniel O'Neil," he said. "But, first,  what do you want him for?"  "Well, that's cool. Supposing you  make a start by telling me why you  are so mightily interested in him?"  There are times when you can gain  a great deal by reposing confidence in  a man. Conyers felt that this was  one.   Therefore ho told all he knew.  "In an experience extending ovor  ten years," said Manton, "this is the  most extraordinary affair I have ever  come across."  Y Taking his brown brief bag, he open-  'ed it and extracted a flat, oblong lea-  , ther case. Raising the lid ho displayed, to Conyer's astonished eyes a collection of gems of the finest water.  Really, he confounded the latter whem  he remarked that they were the identical stories concerning which the  Btory had. f'rst beon  told.  "But    wherever in  the    world have  you got them from 1" cried Conyers.  ,   "Kindly give mo your attention and  I will  briefly relate to you an  interesting episodw.   News   to  you   is    the  fact that when O'Neil and Sir Patrick  were in the former's office arranging about the transfer of the stones  their conversation was overheard by  the cashier, one Jonathan Clark, who  happened to be behind an exceedingly thin partition. That night, by a  cunning device, he managed to be left  last in the office. What concerns us  is lhat he also managed to extract this  case from the escritoire. ��������� A train ran  at midnight to .Liverpool ��������� this he  took. Now, don'tyou see, the building  took fire, as in many cases, from some  cause unknown, after tho valuables  had bien stolen. Of course, Clark,  knowing nothing of ihis, but imagining justice to be hot on his heels, got  on a boat bound for Africa without delay. Hearken how retribution awaited him. He was stricken down wiLh a  fever. He was told that thero was no.  hope of recovery. Therefore ho sought  lo purchase peace in his dying moments by lostoring his ill-gotten  wealth to its owner. He had got rather friendly with a sailor during the  passage ; to him he inlrusted the case,  together with a confession of his  crime, bidding tho fellow swear by  the most solemn oaths lhat lips could  utter that'he would deliver them up  to Gray & Helmsley. O'Noil's solicitors. The fellow proved faithful���������that  is why1 1 nan hero to-day."  "What shall you do?"casked Conyers  eagerly.  "I don't know. If, as you say, Mr.  O'Neil is a lunatic, what will bo lhe  good of giving him the jewels? He  certainly will not' recognize^ them.  Can't you suggest something?"  "They do say that when a man/ has  been robbed of ^reason by a sudden  shock, a sudden shock will also restore it. Como, lot us test the truth  of that theory."  Manlon assented'eagerly, so together they proceeded to O'Neil's abode.  They were courteously received hy  Mrs. O'Neil and her daughter. 'Man-  ton told his story. The ladies wero  amazed, electrified.  "You inspire a hope undreamed of,"  cried Mrs. O'Neil.  Without another word she darted  upstairs to her husband, and was followed no less quickly by the others.  O'Neil was found silting in an armchair gazing into spaco. When, however, M.-mfon offered him the. jewel  case he took it readily enough. He  turned it over gravely, opened it, and  (hen, alas I looked at the jewels with  lack-lusler eyes. They- might have  been pebbles.  Mrs. O'Neil sank into a chair with  a piteous moan. H-id this momentary  brightness come here fto make heir  more miserable lhan ever? But heir  daughter had approached Conyers, nnd  was putting her hand upon his arm.  It gave him joy to think that in the  time of crisis sho turned to him.  "Can you do anything, Mr. Conyers?" she asked, earnestly.  "Yes. I have a plan. I will mesmerize your father, if you will letlme,"  he said, quietly.  For all hia endeavor he could not  prevent a tremor from creeping into  his voice. Mrs. O'Neil sprang from  her chair aghast; Manton stared at  htm with his mouth open. Conyers  had not time to think of them.  "It is a great risk,", be continued ;  "but is' not this a desperate case which  demands such.?"  "But How can you do what you say?"  asked Mrs. O'Neil.  "I studied it in Paris along with' art.'  I was very successful with expe.rlaments which I tried upon my fellow  .students."  "You certainly can't be successful  with Mr. O'Neil,'' protested Manton.  "His mind is deranged."  "All the better," explained Conyexs,  "his resisting power will he absent.  It is itnpossible. to mesmerize a man  against his Will. Mr. O'Neil's state  will be of considerable assistance to  me. The activity of the ganglion cells  of the brain, with which the functions  of consciousness are believed, to bei  specially associated, are almost inhibited in his case. You must know that  insanity is entirely due to the disorder' of the brain. However, let us  make preparations."    7  Conyers' plan was very, simple. Obtaining permission from Mrs. O'Neil,  he went into the adjoining bedroom,  and found there a writing desk containing drawers���������four in all. He placed the jewel case in the.bottom drawer,  closed it, then returned to his subject. He gazed straight into his eyes  for a few moments, and then commenced making passes with his hands  before his face, backward and forward.  O'Neil watched him with a kind of  grave curiosity for a little while, and  tlhen! he put his hands up to' his face  and rubbed his eyes. Suddenly he  winced slightly and straightened him-  .self in his chair. Ah ! What was that?  Gradually his eyes became intent on  Conyers' until he had lost the power  to draw them away. The pupils began  to dilate, then tho eyeballs to protrude, then the eyelids to droop. Respiration and circulation became considerably accelerated, until at length  perspiration set in and complete stupor soon followed- Whilo in this state  of coma the more powerful will could  do with him what it chose.  Conyers threw his head back in exultancy. But he had reckoned without his host. The tense feeling of  every faculty overstrained became almost   unbearable.   He  would not    be  laplured the jewel case. And , then  Conyers waked him. It took many  moments and all _watched with fearful  anxiousness.    What would happen ?  It was pleasant to seo what did happen. O'Neil snatched up the case, toro  it open,' laid hold of the jewels, and  ran across tho room to a far corner,  clasping them to his' breast and uttering littlo shrieks of joy. It was  piliful to behold! Not long, and Mrs.  O'Neil nnd Kathleen had darted to bis  side and were holding his hands and  murmuring soft words of comfort.  He looked into their eyes and recognized them, and groat tears stood in  his eyes. Then Conyers knew that he  had succeeded; but barely by the skin  of his teeth. A mist rose before his  eyes; he tottered to a couch ; ha lost  consciousness.  - He awoko to find Kathleen bending  over him with a wonderful look in her  eye1?. She was holding his hand, and  ���������Well,' the sequel is to happen in six  months' time.  KING   SOLOMON'S   MINES   FOUND?  Carl  IVtr-r-i Asserts That Ho round Oplilr  llliere    He    :.oohe������l   Tor   I������    lit   SoiiIIi  Allien.  I have this summer explored the  country between the Zambesi and the  Pungwo, in Portuguese East Africa  and Eastern Mashonaland. Before I  started from England I had acquired  geographical information which led mo  to believe that Fura was near the eastern entrance of the Lupata Gorge.  There I have found it. It is situated  on the banks of tho Muira River, about  fifteen miles south of the Zambesi, and  half-way between Sena and Tete. At  the, time of my discovery I had with  mo Mr. Puzy and two mining engineers, Messrs. Grainann and 'Napolski.  I should perhaps explain here that  Fura is the native corruption of the  word Afur, by which name tbe Arabs  of tho sixteenth century knew the  district of which I am speaking. Afur  is tho Sabaean or South Arabian form  of the Habre/w name Ohpir. 1 havo  ample proof lhat the 'Fura we discovered and explored 'this summer is tho  Ophir of the Old Testament. Afur or  Ophir in the Semitic language, means  mine. Fura in tno language of the  people who now inhabit the district  also means m'uic.  The naiives, who aro under the powerful chief, Macombe, call themselves  Makalanga,  which  moans  PEOPLE OF THE SUN.  Unliko any other Africans I' know,  they aro to th.a day, sun and fire  worshippers. They are quae unliko the  ord.nary African, and havo a distinct  Jewish type of face, and in my opinion  lhey aro a mixture of the Asiatic conquerors with the original inhabitants  of  the  country.  On arriving in the district, 1 soon  found that the natives had some idea  of the existence of the ancient Oi/hir.  In fact, they wash gold themselves after the rainy season, and after storing  it in quills,, do a fairly large trade in  it with Beira and Tete.  At first I had great difficulties with  these people. For five weeks they refused to sell mo food and performed  war dances,to frighten me. Macombe,  the chief, then sent his brother Sun-  tete to me, demanding what I meant by  entering   his   country.

The bishop of Pretoria, Dr. Bous-  field, was summarily ordered from his  homo and from the Transvaal by Kru-  ger. lt was a fear trip for tho  aged prelate to inako from Pretoria to  Delagoa Bay in an open coal car. But  ho says ho had io get away somohow.  Ho continues: " No Uitlander is prir-  mitled to remain in the Transvaal  without a permit. -People found there  without permits are condemned to 2o  lashes and threo months' imprisonment. As the Uitlanders leave their  property is commandeered or stolen  by tho Boers. Tho savagery of the  Boer to-day is worso than it was before the war.broke out. It makes any  Christian man's blood boil when ho  reflects that theso wretches first rob  their victims und then actually apply tho lash to them because they aro  British, subjects."  WHY    BULLER'S    PLAN    WAS  CHANGED.  Gen. Buller went to South Africa  with fixed intention���������in which the British Government concurred���������of abandoning Ladysmith, leaving the B. .-ill  gaj-rison there to the mercy of 9  Boers, ho himself-marching in force t..-  reot upon Bloemfontein and Pretoria,  relieving Kimberley en route. Nobody  then believed that Ladysmith could  hold out beyond the, end of the year,  but Buller had not'been at tho ond ot'  the Cape many days before ho cabled  the British ministry announcing tho  change of policy, largely, no doubt,  because of the" bad effect upon'- tho  Cape Dutch and the natives of such  a Boor triumph as the surrender of  Ladysmith would appear to be. Thc  minislry replied in effect: " Sorry, but  do  as  you  think  host."  It was this general concentration of  Gen. Buller upon Natal, and not a mere  incident of the Tugela rivbr reverse,  that decided the cabinet to .send out  Lord Roberts and Lord Kitchener to  direct the campaign as a whole from  Caipetotwn. '  DID NOT KNOW HER WITH WIIIS-  KEIIS. .  - Tho Natal Witness tolls a story of  haw the captain in a regiment in Natal, when paying his company the other week, cban.'ed to give a man a  Transvaal half crown, which, as one  would naturally expect, hours the image and superscription of President  Krugor. The man brought tho coin  back to the pay-table, and said it was  a bad half-crown. The officer Look the  coin, and without looking at it ranir  it on the tablo, and then remarked: "It  sounds all rigbi, Atkins; what's  wrong with it?" "You look at it, sir."'  w,as the reply. The captain glanced  at the coin, saying, " It's all right,  man ; it will pass in tho canteen.? This  apparently satisfied Atkins who walked off, making the remark: "If you  say it's a' right, sir, it's a' right; but  It's the first time I've seed the Queen  however, as I had succeeded in getting | w.i whiskers on.  food from oth.er.sources, Cuntete seem-; HOW BOER TRAPS  ed inclined to be friendly.

There was an  extraordinary contrast between the  Boers, who were almost invisible, and  Lhe British troops marching conspicuously across absolutely oj>en country.  HOW   THE    UITLANDERS    WERE  TAXED.,  Tho following statistics show to  what an extent th8 Uillandor "has  been taxed by the Transvaal Government:  Supposing his business was the importation into the Transvaal of any  of Lhe following articles, he would hava  to pay, first of all, a customs tariff  on beer of 73 cents per gallon; butter, $2.21 for every hundred pounds;  cheese, tho samo; coffee, 50 conts per  hundred pounds; gunpowder, 73 cents  per pound ; dynamite, ������14.58 per casoj  guns, ������2.45 for every ��������� barrel, with  81.21 1-2 .per hundred for cartridges;  'ironware, machinery, jewehlery, pre-,  ironware, machinery, jowelley, preserved meats, vegetables, and fresh  fruits wero charged an indiscriminate  7 1-2 per ceut. ad valorem duty; common soap ������1.12 1-2 per hundred pounds;  toilet soap, $2.43 for a similar quantity; ajyirits, when from neighboring,  states S1.4G per gallon, >but when from  outside South Africa, ������2.43, and, it  over proof,  ������4.8*5 per gallon.  THE B01"*R PONIES. '  The celebrated Boor ponies havo tho  blood of the Basuto pony in them,  and the Basuto pony is a pure brod  Scotchman. He is not even a half  caste. There wero ho horses or ponie3  in Basutoland until 1810, when a butcher ia Grahamsiowu nam=d Cawood  impo'rted from Scotljjid a number of  Shetland ponies. A lot of them were  lost and found their Wriy into B-isuio-  land, where they multiplied exceedingly. Thoy are now the pr.do of  BjsuLoland and everybody rides one in  that nativo state. You can buy one  there for fifty or seventy-five dollars.  They havo the same little feat and ���������  long mane and tail as their Shetland  ancestors, and even more of their sure-  footedness. Thoy carry their rider  down sleep mountain sides, along snoop  walks, by precip.ee edges, and always  walk close io the brink. It is a rat hor  nervous experience at first, hut the  Basuto pony never fails.

A    BRITISH    SERGEANT    OF    THE  BOERS.  Sergeant    Saunderson,    with    Lord  OOM PAUL'S BERLIN FORBEARS.  According to n widely-credited legend, Pros.dent Krugcir's family originally came troin thu town oi; "Jleiirin,  in lIio province of Brandenburg. Soma  people have o,ven proiesbed to po.nt  out lho l-.ouse wherei his forefathers  "lived. As a matter of fact, the lound-  er oi lho family was real.y born in  Berlin.

This James Ki'ugor entwred the service ol the Dutch Bast India Company, and went out to Cape .Town in  1713. Later on he settled down at  Stellansbosch. He married Johanna  Kemp and by her had children, of  whom tlie youngest, Hendrik Krugeir,  was born on April 8, 1725. i This Iien-  drik had a .son, Gert Kruge.r,: who, on  Nov. 12, 1708, uiarriod Susanna Lacija  Boys and resided at Giaaf Reinrit.  There a son was born (o'him, Steph-  anus Johannes Krugor, who was tho  grandfather of tho Presidi.nl." Sleph-  anus Kruger (married Sophia ..Margaret ha Steenkamp on Jan. -8, 17.98. Of  hit, six children, Casper Jan Hendrik  Kruger was born in 18 4, H- married  Elsie. Francina Steyn of Billhook, near  Co'esberg, and settled down at Bul-  hoek. Here a son was born on Oct;  10. 1825, who was christened Stephanus  Johannes Paulus, and is now tho President of the Transvaal Republic.  ern entrance of the Lupata, boj'ond ' Methueu's force, was in the battles of  which rapids made navigation difficult I Belmon(. ,in(J Graspan, Writing from  The.Y   then    proceeded   overland    and, , . .  found, under the very walls, of the for-, Honey Nest Kloof to his relatives in  tifications, ruins of which ho have dis-   Hartlepool he says:���������  covered, alluvial and, also reef' gold.  They then settled for a considerable  period, and afterward migrated to the  west toward the Ruerrye. They eventually settled in the (cool climate on In-  yanga, conquered all tho districts west  and southwest as far as the Sanyate  River and Tete,-and ibuilt a great empire along the Zambesi and Rabi rivers. The ancient Sabaean empire probably lasted for thousands of years. Its  existence was well known among the  Semitic nations, and it is interesting  to note that Ophir is always mentioned  in the Old Testament without any explanation as to its locality. I have  seen enough to be assured that all tho  [products of the ancient Ophir are to  be found on the Zambesi.  " As a result of my investigation tho  Arabian and Indian theories, regarding  Ophir fall to pieces, and I claim unhesitatingly to have located this year  the Golden Ophir of King Solomon and  King Hiram."    .  "People CHn say -what they like  about Boers being good fighters, but  I consider them a lot of cowards. As  soon as thoy are driven from the hills  on the plains, and pur men make a  charge at tbem they won't stand and  fight, but simply show the fil'ag of  truce until they have gained another  substantial position, and then they will  commence, firing on you, as usual,  shooting officers and men."  HOW  SIR RED VERS BULLER WAS  .    '  .    ��������� DECEIVED.

Prior  to taking Dr. Ward's   Pills    she- had  . taken  many medicines    without    any  ���������special benefit. Dr. Ward's Blood and  .
