 ."J  VOL 3.-N0. 33.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1900.  FIVE CENTS.  '���������nfi  1. ffiljjl HOUSE.  Slocan's Member Makes a Neat Speech  But Committs Himself on the  Eight-Hour Law.  Mr. It. F. Green, of Kaslo, followed  llr. Pooley.    After the usual tribute to  the mover of tlie address,  lie took up  the great question of liis  district, the  eight-hour law.   That he did not consider  the  sole cause of   tlie  troubles.  Tlie mines  shut down had  paid  millions of dollars  in dividends, and even  for the present year   $2,000,000  would  probably represent,   the profits of the  Slocan, whose total output would probably reacli 87,000,000 lor the year 1S99.  There wero labor troubles there, but it  has not been shown  that  the shorter  day  was   their   sole cause,    lie also  chafFcd   the opposition members   for  their   caution   in   committing   thcrn^  selves  on this question.     They  were*  saying a great deal about it, but they  seemed  afraid, to demand  its repeal.  All of them fought shy of that.  He had been referred to by tho minister of finance concerning the spending  of the appropriations. So lar as his  district was concerned, they were better  spent last year than ever before in his  16 years' residence there. In the preceding year the government had spent  ������Oft IW1   'in'fl..l    ...'/Ii......      L.t^   if    Un.l   1   ������26,000 iiv that riding, but it had been  largely misspent; ������6,000 rightly used  had gone quite as far.  He favored the alien law.   It worked  well in   the province he thought.   In  the State of Washington, if one of our  men wandered   across the  line before  he could stake a   claim he must forswear tho Queen.  Mr. Eberts���������No.  Mr. Green���������But I know, lienor  The people, too, he held, favored the  law,   and   many   tilings    were   quite  wrongly attributed to its workings.  The senior member for Esqiiimalt  was quite mistaken in saying that the  miners did not want the law, as the  speaker would assure him that they  did, and that they wanted it just as ft  was. The country knew that the eight-  hour law was here,' that it was here to  stay and that it had their approval too.  In this as in their geueral policy, the  government still enjoyed the confidence  of the province."  Mr. Green thinks that the eight-hour  law is not the sole cause of'the Slocan  trouble. As no one else knows of any  other cause he might have pointed it  out.   7  It is true some mines that have shut  down have paid dividends and could  pay them working as the miners desire  them; but Mr. Green well knows this  isnotaih Are properties to submit to  any Hceicing simply because they can  . pay it and live? Mr. Green might be  able fo run his store if a fifth'more was'  added to his expenses, without any. increase in his income; but would he not  contest legislation, stolen through in  the night as the eight-hour law was,  that forced such conditions upon him?  ' Air. Green well knows that while some  of .the closed properties (and, we  here say Ins figures as to profits of  those paying are incorrect) are dividend-payers, they are not all, arid some  of them may never bo. It is true that  many miners want the law; but it is  also true that some do hot, and the  miners arc hot one-fourth of the population of the country.  It appears to us tliat when the government party, know that they are tlie  cause of the Slocan trouble, in the face  of their pre-election declarations, that  there had been too much tinkering  with the mining laws of the country  by the late government, they should  devise some means of correcting the  wrongs of this district.and terminating  the financial losses befalling it.  As we intimated above, if Mr. Green  knows it is not the eight-hour law that  is wholly responsible for the Slocan  trouble, he ought to tell the government what the element is and introduce legislation to rectify tne wrongs.  This is clearly his duty as the representative of the division.  But let us go farther and correct  some of Mr. .Green's figures, and we  will call it for the time misconception  of the facts. He enumerates some  properties, which he intimates, can  pay two millions in dividends,, and  Bhould therefore pay the wages demanded. Iu the last statement to the  shareholders,' the Payne promised $25,-  000 a month that would be $300,000 a  year. Taking the profits of the others  ia the past, and considering their best  output with a full force, the combined  dividends could not possibly exceed one  million. Then say #1,250,000 for the  whole of them.   Now in actual cost to  Z  tho present ownors.thc mines ho named  represent SS,000,000, so the dividend,  ���������would represent gross, 15 per cents  This to the uneducated mind represents a large sum, justly meriting  pluder, but as it is gross but 15 per  cent, on capital invested, we ask Mr.  Green, as a business man, if ho thinks  it is too much? We -would ask him if  he has, year in and year out, subjected  to ihe plunder of his employes all he  has made over 15 per cent, on capital  invested? or if he thinks it would be  right to have him compelled to do-it  by legislation? But even this is not all.  There are in tho Slocan more than  1,000 properties on which expenditures  of ������100 and upwards have been nude.  The best estimate ii that all told over  515,000,000 are sunk in Slocan proper-  tics. The dividends then of the paying  mines spread over the entire number  would realise less than S per cent. Do  Mr. Green and those who think witli  him conclude this is too much? Should  acts of the legislature make it less and  still le:ivo - encouragement to the investors? This is another thing we  must take into account.  The Payne and other dividend payers are blamed by the m'ners, by Mr.  Green and others for not opening and  working because they C.\y pay , the  wages asked. As if a man's ability to'  -pay-thc demand, oven of robbers, was  a reason he should meet them���������that,  for instance, Mr. Green should pay 35  a day at his hotel simply because he is  able to pay it.  Now,  the   unions  take   into   membership every   man disposed   to join,  whether they are worth  to employers  S2.00 or S5.00 a day, and demand $3.50  for all, and they are, as is well known  to Mr. Green, taking tho most vigorous  steps to prevent other men  from1 coming in, or working, for less.   They want  these wages from tho prospect, and the  property that  has neyer paid   a dollar  and never may,   as well  as   from the  Payne which they say  can well afford  it.    If, under such  circumstances, the  Payne and other dividend payers join  their   weaker brethren in a stand for  justice, is the act not at least as commendable and as,much entitled to protecting legislation as  the'union?,   are  in demand ing-. $3.50 for.$2.50'men ? and  forcing the properties to be idle if they  refuse to bo bled., ;.  We do not ask Mr. Green to consult  the owners, but will say that if he will  only consult the business men of the!  district, he will at once learn that the 0U8W.  owners have made a very liberal offer,  not alone to the men but to the unions,  mind you, and it has been  accepted by the men and nullified  through the instigation of that alien  organization, the Western Federation  of Miners, whose president advocates  the adjustment of their grievances by  the sword.' Does the representative of  the constituency then not think- that  something should be done by the legislature ���������?'   ���������-.'_���������"' '    ' .  If Mr. Green feels as we do that capable, industrious, law-abiding  citizens  are entitled to .$3.50,  ho ought also to  know that the scores of incapable men  in the district, who would rather live  in agitations  and disturbances of the  peace, are not entitled to it;   and he  ought to favor legislation  that would  either make them accept what they are  worth or leave the vacancies  to those  who will.   We think in this we are not  asking too much.   As a representative,  of the. constituency   Mr. Green's first  object "should  be   the   restoration   of  harmony and the settlement and development of the  country  instead, of  encouraging non-action that is cultivating bad blood, and sowhigseeda that  will ultimately result in serious  consequences to the country.  As   a   man   and   a citizen  we have  the   highest   regard  for   Mr. Green;  but   our   aim is   more the  advancement   of   the   material   interests    of  the   country   than   tho   corralling   of  votes at elections, and must, therelore,  deal with  public men as we find them  in public matters.    Every   man   employing labor in any form knows there  are all shades of capability in men,and  they   are,   therelore,   entitled   to   all  shades   of  wages on   the platform  of  justice.   In all other   callings  in life  men   get graded   Wages   according to  ability, and it will never be right until  it is  the case in mining as well.   The  rule was true, of mining in  the  west  until the unions got hold of the people  and   did   their   plastic  work   to   war  against capital; arid if judgement and  justice ever displace socialism and despotism   in the minds of the subjects  afflicted by them, it will again be the  rule, to the great service ol the people.  The leaders���������those' who   make   their  living  by their wits,   and out of  the  pockets   of   their   more   industrious  neighbors, may not fare as well/but it  will be better   for the   masses of the  people.

Mr  We, the Brotherhood of Painters and  decorators of America, Local Union  13S, beg to submit lho following rules  and regulations: (1) That tho hours  of labor shall be between 7 a.m. and 5  p.m., with one hour for lunch between  12 and 1p.m., where1 practical, but  where inconvenient the employer and  employe shall arrange an hour to suit,  but in any event nine hours shall constitute a day's work. (2) That the  minimum rate of wages shall bo 33J  cents per hour. (3) That workmen  shall be allowed to work one hour after  the usual hour of quitting in order to  finish a job at the same rate of wages.  (4) That all work done after 6 p.m.  shall be paid at the rate of time and a  half.  The eight-hour law champions' can  take a lesson from this. Without a  Jaw on the Hubject, the unions and employers will agree on 9 hours as a day's  work. The union allows over-time and  specifies a rate for it. We are fully  confident that if the miners had taken  a similar stand   some time ago   they  The Rambler-Cariboo shipped 40 tons  this week,  The Payne shipped 165 tons of ore  the K. & 3. and 60 over the C.

Some people who are more officious  than wise say on the streets, that after  the present trouble is settled  the owners will boycot union men.   As we are  not more in the confidence of the owners than the business people generally,  we- have no instructions from, them ;  but we know from general conversation  that such is not the case.   They made  what all,   even the union now  admit,  was a good offer; the men accepted but  the union converted it iiito^a, trap that  has acted like a boomerang.-The owners  have no ill towards any eft-he men and  will not discriminate  between union  and non-union,  but  will take oh   any  and all on their merits! as miners  who  will attend   to their business industri  They can   at any  time   command  ail the foreigners they require,  but are willing to givetheold-hands' a  preference at $3.25 a day���������the scale accepted  by the union���������when the men  want to work as formerly.  On   Monday   evening   there  was   a  "gathering of the clans"   in Spencer's  hall, to give Mr. Donald McDonald and  wife   a   good   Scotch send-off,   before  leaving for Edmonton, where they will  take up  ranching life.     Although the  surprise   was   hurriedly gotten  up   it  seemed to be a very happy affair, even  though it meant "good-bye" to old and  tried friends.     Dancing   was kept up  till after midnight, when an adjournment was made to the  Balmoral  par-  lord where those familiar with, perhaps,  the language  of   the garden of Eden,  whiled away the remainder of the'night  in a flow of Gaelic, or, as one old cronie  said, "we didri'c break up, at all until  we saw  them got oh the train.''   Mr.  McDonald has been a resident of these  parts for along time, and botlihe and  his partner will be missed"among- the  many, Jtlacks of ���������. the city   as well   as  others,  who   wish  them prosperity in  their new home on the prairie,  where  some of the family are living.  On Monday some 40 miners came in  from Vancouver to work at the Enterprise mine.   They were engaged by aa  employment  agent at Vancouver   for  this purpose.   On arrival at Rosebery  .they were met by members of the New ���������  Denver and Silverton unions (although  we believe one of the number crept in  at Nakusp) and induced to break their-  arran'gemenls.    Some of the number,  we understand, remained.     The New  Denver correspondent of   the   Nelson  Tribune says two falsehoods were told  the men at the Coast���������the one tnat the  trouble was settled and  the other that  there was a .scarcity of men.    We understand this is tho same correspondent  who some nvc weeks ago reported the  trouble was settled, and if it was settled  then it ought to be now.   No doubt the  Vancouver agent took the New Denver  correspondent's statement for what he  told  the men.     There   is   one   thing  pretty certain, it is settled so far as the  unions will be able to settle it.   As to  the other statement, it is the New Denver correspondent who is  telling  the  falsehood.   Every resident knows that  if the  mines were to open tomorrow  there would not   be   more.than  half  enough men in the Slocan to fill them.  The business men say'bring in English  speaking miners   to   help the   camp.  When they are brought in the unions  send them out, and some of them clap  the unions on t.1\e back.for doing, so.  Guests at the Reco.  Why Not Petition  A gentleman well in touch with the  miners of this district assures us, that  to settle the present difficulty three-  quarters of the men now in the Slocan  would sign a petition for the repeal of  the eight-hour law, so tliat they might,  return to the old condition of things  and get $3.50 a day. n0 ono cau blame  the men for trying to get all they can  at the same time the owners are. as  justifiable in refusing old pay for reduced service. -If the men-..favor the  idea they should act on it at once so  that the matter may be dealt with by  the legislature  at once.  If it, is the wish of the men we will  -���������'.raft the petition for them and print  several copies of it free of charge to  facilitate the business. By sending a  copy to each mine the matter could be  cleared up iu a weeK or so.: We might  here add that wo are confident that if  the act is repealed the owners will  readily pay the old wages and make  even better concessions to the men as  regards hours, where the conditions are  at all unfavorable to long shifts.

A quiet but very pretty wedding  took place on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the  vestry of the Church of Mary Immaculate, when William Davidson was  united in the holy bonds of matrimony  to Miss B. Walsh, both of Sandon. The  bride assisted by Miss Vera Costello,  of Calgary, while the groom was supported by William Douche, of Nelson.  The bride was handsomely attired in a  while silk dress trimmed with chiffon,  while the bridesmaid looked charming  in a pretty travelling costume of blue  velyet. The ceremony was performed  by the Rev. Father Fcrland.���������Nelson  Tribune.  ���������_ Mr. Davidson ancl bride reached tho  city on Monday evening via C.P.R.  The Progress of the War.  Something Sensible.  The painters of Vancouver have met  and passed the following resolutions to  go in effect at once: ;  There is no questioning the fact that  the British forces are not making  the  progress in the war that it was at first  expected they   would.   The Boers are  putting up a most determined defense.  The ultimate must be the .success  of  the British army, but  the loss  before  then will be fearful.   Already the British loss in killed, wounded and prisoners is over 8.000���������a large number for  the age of the war.   Buller has crossed  Tugela River, and is advancing as fast  as he can to the relief of Ladysmitb,  with the bulk, it is safe  to say, of the  Boer army between.     The country is  very rough���������consisting of hill,   valley,  morass and deep rivers,  with the bulk  of the Bser force in- the strongest position, the height oflaud between. They  are there well-entrenched behind hills,  breastworks, stone walls and other protections  known to warfare.   As  a result shelling is Buller's moat successful  means of attack.  Altogether some 33 companies of the  south houu'ry,   representing some 25  millions of capital, have petitioned the  B. C. Legislature"for a repeal of the 8-  hour law, and now come the tollowing  from the Slocan and around representing some ������20,000,000 more :   The Hall  Mines, Ltd.; The Fern Gold  Mining <fc  Milling    Co.;    Duncan    Mines     Ltd.;  Granite Gold Mines Ltd.; Queen  Bsss  Proprietary Co.

About 45 of thesi  companies have tried it from the start,  and many of them say they will either  have to reduce wages with the conse->  quences or secure a repeal of the law.  We venture, however, if 50 miners with  votes though they have not a dollar's  worth in the country beyond drawing  their wages and never intend to have it  petition for the maintenance of the law  as it stands, our government will pay  more attention to the latter. Of such. .  is the B.C. statesmanship of to-day.  Mr. Hagler's Case,  As was announced last week, Wm.  Hagler, secretary of the miners' union,  was arrested for leading an "unlawful  assembly" interfering with men being  brought in by, the Payne mine, and  with using abusive language. After  two or three adjournments his case  came before Justiee Lilly at 2:30 p. m.  yesterday, Mr. Christie prosecuting  and Mr. W. A. Macdonald, of Nelson,  defending the prisoner.  The case is on as we go to press but  Mr. Hand having been examined. His  evidence supports the indictment.  Whether the charge will be reduced  and completed here, or be sent to the  higher court it is impossible to say. It  will take all of this (Friday) evening  and perhaps most of to-day to finish.  a$  if*  ��������� 'l*L.

Plunged, as Britain has been, into a  war which can have but ono issue.   II  '  may be interesting to bestow a passing  glance l at other  existing  causes  that may  lead  to war in which    she  may, become' involved.  On the Continent the general impression seems to be that John Bull  Is always spoi ing for a fight, and that  ho can't be 'happy unloss he has a few  "expeditions," not altogether in the  -[nt'erest'.'.of science,, afoot somewhere  or other. i  But although there have been, in  England's relations with Germany,  Russia.and France within most recent  years, causes enough to have let into  rvar, nothing untoward happened. A  Hying squadron collected and dis-  jersoe again. Russia was check-  nated in China. : Franco on the Ni-  rer: was persuaded to "quit it;" the  iTusboda fever ran its course without  iny undue rise of temperature of  tither country; and a few other min-  ,ir "disputes wero more or less amicably  'arranged."  The Venezuelan boundary dispute,  which so seriously threatened to impair the friendly relations between the  Lion and the Eagle, has been settled,  ������s no doubt the . Alaskan frontier  juestion will also be.  England's attitude during the war  with' Sp<ain,: which did much to prevent a European continental combination, has made war between Uncle  Sam and John Bull improbable foi  lomo time at least,   i    (  The conquest by railroad of Manchuria by liussia, and the seizure of  Port Arthur seemed at the time likely to issue in war; -but a more effective barrier against,Russia was erect-  : Bd by a-simple .declaration that the  Yang-tse Valley���������tho largest, richest,  most populous and accessible part,of  the Chinese Empire���������was within the  ���������exclusive sphere of British influence,  nnd it was an international surprise  that  Russia   acquiesced.  The effective support since given to  British railway and mining concessionaires, and the vetoing of the proposed Russian railway to Peking, render it very unlikely that ,ahy further  ������ttempl to partition China will lead  to war" with any European Power.. '  In the Indo-Chinese peninsula, SLam  Is now tie only "buffer" state between England and France. France  has hustled Siam out of large and  rich tracts.to the east of the Mekong,  nnd still remains in' possession of ihe  Important Siamese part of Chanta-  ". bun. But any further advances by  France or an attempt to establish her-  Belf permanently in the Menam Valley would certainly be regarded by  England as an "unfriendly act.'1  POSSIBLE CONFLICTS.  The possibleetransfer in the near future of Italy's costly and unprofitable  colony of Eritrea, on the Red Sea  Coast, to England, or its annexation  to the Anglo-Egyptian Soudan Province,, may possibly result in conflict  With Menelik, the Abyssinian, or some  of his turbulent satraps, but this will  bo "pie"' for England.  News has also come to hand recently  of the dispatch of a Congo State  force into the Bahr-el-Ghazal���������Emin  Pasha's old 'province���������that rich and  fertile territory which Marchand's  march to Fashoda was designed to  bring under the aegis of France, and  thus complete the French belt right  across Equatorial Africa from the  Gabun to the Gulf of Aden. . France,  it should be remembered, has an option on the Congo State whenever  King Leopold lures of his hobby, and  Belgium refuses to support the "black  -elephant."     ' :     .  British possession of Gibraltar is an  ever-felt "sore point" of Spain. English sovereigns, centuries after Britain had lost every inch of territory  la France, continued to pose as titular  "Kings of France," and Spain, although she lost.'-the Ruck" 191) years  ago, to this day includes Gibraltar in  her official returns with the naive  note: '"temporarily occupied by the  English 1"  In a general European war, Spain  would naturally do her utmost to  oust Queen Victoria from her command of the Atlantic entranco of tho  Mediterranean. She has a few "pre-  eidoes," Centa, Teutan, etc., on the op-  positu coast, bu* any attempt by  France or other first-class Power, except America, to share the control of  the Straits of Gibraltar would instantly result in an ultimatum from  England, and that is why barbaric  Morocco has not passed under the European yoke like Algeria and Tunis.  ITALY  AND FRANCE.  Ever simce Rome became, in 1870,'  the capital of Italy, France has regarded her Mediterranean neighbor  with a jealous eye, but the Triple Alliance forbids any violent manifestation of the dislike that undoubtedly  exists between the two chief Latin  peoples.  Italy's sorest point against France  is, undoubtedly, the "rushing" of  Tunis in 1881, ostensibly to punish the  Kroumir marauders, but in reality to  secure a new base for the French navy  in the now, impregnable port of Bi-  zeota.   ���������  By a series of such " progressions''  France has scored heavily in Northern  Africa and any day we may hear of a  descent on the still nominally Turkish province "of Tripoli.

By 7.15 the Irish brigade had driven the Boers to the north bank of the  Tugela. They found that the enemy  had planted the ground with barbed  wire entanglements. ' Even in the bed  of the river barbed -wire was laid  down. Into the water went the Dublin Ihniskillings, Borderers and Con-  naughts, but it was found at the ford  that, tho Boers had cunningly dammed .  the river, and there was ten feet ol  Watei where ordinarily it is but knee  deep. ���������' They strove to find the crossings, and many a fine-jfollow, with hia-  weight of ammunition and accoutre- ���������  meiits, was drowned. It was u desperate and serious situation. The  attack upon the right was making no  progress, and the hearts of the men  had reached an apparent impasse. But  there were furious and angry Irishmen who had resolved to get across  somehow. By dint of scrambling  from rock lo rock and swimming, a  number won Ihe o.her si a- Yet most  of them found that they had -but  passed across a winding spruit. The  Tugela still lay in front, and all tha  while the murderous fire of cannoD  and Mauser crashed and comrades fell,  weltering   in   their   blood.  In the. meanwhile Colonel Long had  lost his guns, and Generals Buller and  Clery with their staffs and escorts had  ridden to  the scene.  TBIED  TO  SAVE  THE  GUNS.    '  The spouting hail of lead and iro..  snapped and- spluttered, and the dust  puffed .more than ever.

Corporals from the linesmen and drivers of the ammuniliup  waggons, faking spare teams, galloped  out and ; men and horses again began falling on every side. Young  Roberts' horse was blown up by a  shell- Congrove was hit with a bullet and his clothes were, cut by other  missiles. Schofield alone escaped untouched. Across that valley of death  quickly the surviving animals were  rounded up and the guns were hooked  and  dragged  away.  Again and again that day attempts  were made to haul, off the. remaining  guns, but the Boer.fire was incessant  and withering. At four the. battle was  over. General Buller abandoned the  guns  and   retreated.       i  Every cloud may have a silver lining,  but the average man is satisfied if his  ipocket is  lined with  silver.  HP  raW**  mssSmm -3  It was Mrs. Sherwin Blake's afternoon " At home," and that fascinating  lady was endeavoring in heroic fashion  to adminster tea, to remember who  took sugar and who did not, and to  chatter affably to some half-dozen  lady^ friends ��������� clustered around her.  making occasional bolts towards the  door to recoive new visitors. Of course.  her daughter, Miss Nettie Blake,  ought to have helped her mother with  these social duties; but' that young  lady was sitting in a fur corner, engaged in earnest conversation with a  certain Mrs. Rapley, who professed to  know a groat deal about spiritualism.  "���������But tell me," Nettie was saying in  an awe-Btricken voice, " can this woman you were talking about really  see what is going to happen to people, and do her prophecies always come  true ?"  ' 'As to that" repli.ed her friend, "I  have certainly known her foretell the  future wonderfully ; but she succeeds  best in discovering people's characters and lives from merely holding in  her hand something belonging to them.  For instance, if you give her a letter  Bho will, without even looking at it,  tell you all about the writer, though  both you and tho writer aro quile un-  . known to her."  Now, besides the number of lady visitors at Mrs. Blake's that afternoon  there had been ono man���������Captain Le  Stremo Tassling, of tho Life Guards.  He had left a little while before, but  Nettie's thoughts were full of him; in  fact; though she had known him but  a brief time, this foolish girl ��������� fresh  from the school-room, had lost her romantic little heart to the handsome  soldier, and had accepted him as the  ideal man. Of his feelings towards her  she knew nothing, but she pleased herself with imagining that his chai-ming  manners -were even more charming  with her than wilh others,' and that  his dark eyes had a particularly lender look in them when in hor company.  Such thoughtB were buried deep in her  inmost heart, and were never breathed  to anybody, excopt, of course, hor especial girl friend, who didn't count ;  but sho pined to know, whether her  eonviction was right, or whether his  sails and attentions were for her motb-  ������r alone. The talk with Mrs. Rapley  at once suggested to her mind a way  of satisfying' herself on this  point.  A day or two afterwards, when  i dinner-party was under discussion,  Nettie was strongly in favor of inviting Captain Tassling; ana, though she  had to bear some banter about this  eagerness, she gained her point, arid  7 also a promise that the gallant Captain should take her. in to dinner. The  Invitation was sent, and next morning  ajt breakfast, Mrs. Blake laughingly  tossed1 a note   across   to  Nettie,   say-  : Ing:' ���������'-.������������������ '. '��������� ���������  " There, my doar, I hope that will  Batisfy you."  It merely contained tha usual formal words,'���������'���������'��������� Captain ; Tussling has  much pleasure in accepting Mrs. Sherwin Blake's kind invitation to dinner  ' on the 10th inst." Yet Nettie -preserved the note carefully, and, like the  little goose that she iwas, read it over  and over again when she was alone,  taking in every letter of the belov-  Bd handwriting, and even���������but no; it  were unkind to mention every little  girlish folly that she committed, and,  besides, Nettie is' not the only silly  girl in  the world.  The time had come to put her plan  into execution, however, and in considerable trepidation she .crept but of.the  bouse, armed with the precious scrap  if paper, by means of which so much  was to be revealed to her. She got  into a cab and after a long drive arrived at her destination, which provr  Bd to bo-a grocer's shop. The grocer  ihowed her upstairs,, and shouted for  bis wife. The latter was an exceeding quiet, mild-looking little' woman,  not at all resembling the wild witch  Nettie  had   pictured.  " Please," began the girl, timidly,  feeling somewhat fooish, " I am in a  great hurry, but I should like you to  tell me what you can about lho person who wrote this," and she handed  her the note.  " I'll try, miss," replied the woman,  "but to tell the truth, .I am not at  my best just now. You see, folks begin coming to see me early in the  morning, and to-day I've had a groat  many, one after the other, till I'm  tired put."  Nettie looked blank; this was loo  bad, after she had come such a long  way.  " But can't you toll me anything?"  she   enquired   beseechingly.  The woman smiled at her eagerness.  "I daresay I can tell you something,"  she said; " but I never invent as some  clairvoyants do. It's rather a peculiar thing about me that, no matter  bow tired I am, I can nearly always  see and describe places/though I can't  bit off people or characters at all unless I'm   feeling absolutely fresh."  "Well,' the places will be better  than nothing," said the girl with a  oigh; " and, please, be quick as you  can."  Nettie watched the woman curiously as she stood with the note���������that  bad been taken out of its envelope,  though it was still folded iip���������in one  hand. Presently she began:  " Overlooking   a great   park  I see   a  large red brick building, with a clock  tower in the center, surmounted by  a .weathercock. Part of the building  is low and long; there are iron railings in front; and some sentry-boxes  with tall boldiers in red uniform on  guard."  The girl listened in amazement; the  woman had described the barracks  wherein Captain Tassling was quartered,, and she awailod feverishly the  answer  to   hor question.  There was a short pauso; then the  woman started afresh ; " I see in one  wing of the building a beautifully  furnished room ; there are a great  many photographs standing about,  nearly all of different young ladies,  nnd some nre in theatrical coslumc���������"  Hero Nettie interrupted once more,  saying with a remarkable amount of  heat for a girl usually, so sweet-lem-  nered, that she did not care about the  photographs.   . ,  Tho clairvoyanle protested that  such, interruptions would spoil everything, but at last she managed to  come to the point. " In thin room I  see o tall, fair man, with dark eyes,  ho looks strong and soldierlike, and  ho sits pol'shing the hilt of a sword,  as he whistles a tune."  Nettie's heart beat faster. " O 1" she  exclaimed.. " can't you tell me wlinl  ho is thinking about, nnd  whether he  'iH " sho was about to say. 'i'n love."  hut she stopped, and me.r"lv added,  "tell  me  something about  him."  " .Tust now." continued (ho woman,  "ho appears to be in some perplexity;  I' enn'f be quilo sure what aboui, but  it seems that he is deeply attached  to some ono. and 'does not know whether his love is returned or not. But  I think be is fairly hopeful thai il  iR." Al this point lhe exertion appeared lo bo (oo much for her, and, breaking off suddenly, she put her band  to her forehead, exclaiming, " I can't  go  on   any  morel"  The girl scarce heard ; she repeated the words "Deeply attached lo  some one," over and over again to herself, and her eyes sparkled as she exclaimed.

"Thank you, Miss Nettie; I' was  just going lo tell you it was Tommy  as answered Mrs. Rlako's last note inviting the  Captain "  "Good-night, Barker," repeated Nettie, with a sharpness thai sent tlie  maid away in a great hurry, wondering what  was wrong.

PLAGUE INCREASING IN INDIA.  .Morliilllj- In 'the  ������!l.v of Bomb.iv   It   Vi'rr  Eltgli.  The health of Bombay city continues very unsatisfactory, and (here are-  indications' that the city will suffer  from another recrudesenee of the  plague. ��������� The general mortality is  high, being al the rata of 53.-JO per  1,000 per annum, while quinquennial  average is only 33.43. Not only ' this,  but the. deaths from plague show a  decided tendency to increase, and it is  very probable thai tho disease is moro  prevalent than the published figures  would indicate. In view of the disastrous chax-acter of the recent outbreak in Poona the prospect in Bombay gives rise to groat misgiving. The  amount of inoculation which by a  variety of devices has been done is  small compared with tho immense  population, over 820,000, and all other  plague measures have proved useless  for protecting the city.  There seems lo havo been a much  larger amount of plague in the  Nizam's dominions than has been officially reported. The Pl.igue Commissioner iu his official letter says: "At  present plague work in Hyderabad is  a sham, and I cannot consent to be "a  party to il," The official returns with  regard to plague do not indicate the  immense number of concealod cases of  ���������plague which must be continually taking place. For some time past the  returns from Hyderabad have been  very irregular, but the numbers, reported as-occurring In this State have  been sufficient to cause considerable  fluctuation in the weekly returns for  the whole of India.  Like Bombay, the general mortality  in Calcut ta shows an ominous riso. Not  that there,is at present any definite  indication o������- the increase of plague,  but the weekly figures1 reported, are  very significant. ������������������' An attempt to discredit the existence of plague in the  city by certain leading natives supported by the native pross has not  been successful, and inquiry has only  too 'sui-ely proved its continued prevalence. Plague administration in this  city is of the mildest, possible character, and it may ibei said that there is  no preparation in tho event of. a severe outbreak.

The Southorn Mahratta States showed  a great   -improvement.

How our grandmothers would, gaep  were they to see the gossamer fabrics  which now do duty instead of the stout  twills and long cloths of their day.  ���������It is to be doubted whether the possession of this lingerie is altogether an  unalloyed joy, for we suffer a whole-  somo dread when it passes through (lie  laundress' hands. Persian lawn, mull  and bati&t, with Honiton or Valen-  cienmvs are the foundation of some  of the latest, fascinating creations in  tho line of lingerie. Everything is  profusely trimmed with bows and lacing ribbons. Many chemises are made  to tie with ribbons on the shoulders,  which is a much desired innovation,  as upon the occasion of putting on  evening frocks'tho ribbons aro so easily untied. The correct corset of today is cut very long over the hips,  quite twelve or fifteen inches below the  waist, bo as to mold the figure to the  shape demanded by the eelskin skirt.  The front ste-els, too, are arranged so  as to bring about the perfectly straight  unbending, downward line where, the  waist usod to be, but must be no longer. To further accentuate this flatness stocking suspenders are now attached to the front of the stays instead of on the aides.  HYGIENIC COFFEE.  There are many who, for various  reasons, cannot drink coffee, and for  such there are many substitutes wh.ch  aire palatable, and cost less llinni the  genuine  article.  Bran Coffee: This is especially to  bo recommended. Purchase at any  feed t-toro clean, fresh bran. To -1 qts  of- it add 1 teacup best New, Orleans  molasses. ,Work j't in well with the  hands, until there is no, btickiness,  and the molasses is not perceptible.  If; still, sticky, add more bran. Brown  in a moderately hot oven, stirring  frequently that it may brown, evenly  It should be watched closely, as the  molasses in it causes it to burn easily.  When- cool, put in close jars; it will  keop a������Iong time. To make this beverage, uso 1 dessertspoon for each  cup, ami steep or boil ill gently for 15  minutes. If made with the drip coffee pot, allow it to stand on the back  of the stove for the same length of  time.  "Wheat'::, Wheat crushed and browned in- the same way makes .a'de'licioua  drink. Less molasses should beiused,  as ,the wheat will not- absorb it, as  does the bran.  ���������  Dry Bread: Dry bead browned mid  crushed is also another good substitute for coffee. .The drink should be  made in "the same way,, alway-i .being  careful to, use enough to give it: .char-,  acter,  otherwise  it   will  be  insipid.  One tiling to be remembered in ierv-  ingi these/ substitutes for coffee is that  rich cream, is just .as necessary to insure their deliciousneas as it ia necessary to make the cup of coffee perfect.

The  middle of the tabla is occupied ,by   a  mirror with delicate silver trimmings,  and  plates  of  bonbons  encircled    by,  garlands o������ flowers are arranged, oo  the  mirror.      Fruit and flowers    are  now frequently mingled in table decorations.   In  selecting flowers for  tha  table   care  should   be  taken  to  avoid  all  those having a strong scent,  ilka  the   narcissus,   tuberose,  jasmine  and  hyacinllh, as many persona are made  ill   by such odors.   Scentless flowere,  like thei camellia, tulip, crocus on jonquil,  are preferable,   although    rosea  and  violets  seldom  cause  annoyance.  The  smell  of the  chrysanthemum  is  usually quite, inoffensive, and it is/,an  extremely    decorative   flower.    Ornamental foilage, green and colored, may  ai.=oi be used alone with excellent  effect.  To wash woolens, use two tubs of  very hot soapsuds, each supplied with'  a wa=h!board, and a third tub with  slightly soapy, hot water and a  wringer. Put each piece through  whole process before taking up next.  Wash! white flannels first, then gray  and red. Wash in first two suds, ri'nso  in third, put through- wringer andi immediately put on line, 'hanging heaviest part downward. When dry damp- .  on' evenly and thoroughly, roll tightly and iron with very warm irons. On  the contrary,, some persons insist that  it is far  better  not lo  iron  woolens.  To wash blankets, first shake tha  blankets thoroughly, place them' in- a  tub and cover with tepid water,_to  which has been added a strongt solution of ammonia. Immerse the well  nn this, solution, but' do not rub iliem,  or the material with become "felly.''  Pre^s them well to the sides of tho  tub, squeeze them, and change tho  water two or three timea until they  appear; clean. Wring with a wringer  as dry as possible.' You will see as  they dry on the line (hat a little wa-  will collect yi Ihe four corners. This  muit be squeezed out from time to  time, or the blankets will become hard  in   those  parts.  HOUSEHOLD HINTS.  Mainy a bright young woman can  cloau her own furs and also many  varieties of fancy work, by placing  the collarette, muff or other article  to be cleaned o;n a hard surface, such  CARRIES K1S ASHES.  Inconsolable widows sometimes adopt  curious ways of  keeping the memory  of  their  departed  spouses green.  But the palm for originality in this  respect must be awarded to a Boston  actress, who, waking and sleeping, always carried .the ashes of her cremated husband in a chamois leather bag  close  to  her  heart.  The bag is suspended by a gold  chain,from her neck; and she has declared that' if she could not feel it'B  gentle pressure it would be impossible  for her' to sing,  act, or  dance.  This gifted if eccentric, lady is the  widow of a well known actor, who  died some six mouths ago, leaving directions for the cremation of his re-,  mains. It was orig,nally the widow's  intention to deposit the ashes in a  church in an elaborate silver urn,  which she had purchased for the purpose.' But when she had to leave Now  York, where her husband had died,  to go on tour with her company, she  could not bear the thought of leaving  his  ashes  behind. -  She thought of various schemes, and  consulted with ler friends. Finally,  she had a pretty little, chamois leather bag made, and therein she plaoed  the'dust of her cremated husband.  Sometime afterwards the sorrowing widow made the acquaintance of  the leading lady of another theatrical  company during a short. stay at Philadelphia, and to this bright particular  star became greatly  attached.  In the course of a midnight tete-a-  tete, after they had returned , from  their respective performances, the  widow produced the precious bag and  showed the peculiar contents to her  friend. Then, after caressing it fondly,  she gravely opened the bag, and taking a pinch of the greyish ashes in  her-: fingers remarked, with much  solemnity: '  " I'll give you some of the dust. It  will bring you luck, and 1 know that  if poor Ted had lived he would hove  wished   you   luck."  Then she sprinkled some of the  ashes about the lady's bed, with the  result that the " star," who is as superstitious as theatrical people usually are, was almost frightened into hysterical fits.  The eccentric action of lho bereaved widow fillod her with dire forebodings, and ever since she has insisted on her maid sleeping in the same  room with her, as a protection against  the evil influences she ascribes to tha  dead man's ashes.  AFRAID. TO BID.  At an auction salo of miscellaneous  goods at a country store, the auctioneer put: up a- buggy robe of fairly good  quality. '.'An old farmer inspected it  closely, seemed to think there was a  bargain in it, and yet he hesitated to  bid.  Think it choap? asked the auctioneer,  crying  a 10-cent  bid.  Yes, kinder,  was the reply.  Then, why don't you bid and get  it?  Wall, I've bought heapa o' things in  dry goods and so on. slowly rejoined  the old man, and I never yet. took  home anything thaf the old woman  thought * was worth the price.

We may  ������ay at the outset;,that the local-,union  has been most ..unfortunate in the selection of some of its officers,'-., because'  -of the channels into which  they ha*ve  -'. driven its trend.

It had no right to"  -.ask for the'.destruction  of nny niau's  .. liberty by- suggesting the dismissal of  inen who refused to become sheep of  it3 fold. It is not unions the .owners  are looking for but good -men for good  'pay.; It was also as absurd to ask for  .the liberty of inspection of works by  union officers. .This left the field open  for a renewal of trouble on a slender  pretext at any time, when it is only  the workman who is actually employed  .'.that is the best judge of the condition  of the workings. Bad, however, as  these conditions were the refusal . to  sign an absolute contract for a year  was the worst of them all. The public  one and all know tliat that was a con-,  dition for another atrike after the  mines got well under way, or else plunder from the owners.  Wo fully believe that the rank and  file of the membership nre square,  honest men, who, when the last offer  was submitted, felt it was an'absolute  agreement for permanent employment.  The wire-pullers, however, knew differ-  "ently; and the mistake of the union  lay in leaving conclusions with ttu-m.  One of their greatest mistakes, then,  throughout is in the choice of officers.  In all such differences as the present  amicable, lasting settlements can only  be got on the give and take principle,  in a spirit of manliness and fair. play.  Rowdyism cr.n never accomplish anything  but discredit to'the parties em-  <ploying it.   Brute force, intimidation,  etc., site,   are   oquiliy more   than ineffectual.  If the union hern wants to be of any  ���������'strength in the future, it -must cut  itself loose from such relations as it  has now with the W. F. of M., who  have no interest in the welfare of this  country; it mustjolace itself in the  hands of officials, who are ever ready  to meet all friends or foes in a spirit  of gentlemanliness and fair play, and  rely for all time on the righteousness of its cause and the reason of all  with whom it hns to do business, instead of such rowdyism and brute force  as was supposed by some heretofore to  he the only agency of moral suasion  requisite for triumph.  If the union makes these changes  and some other reforms on .the same  line, it will soon have the ear and respect of all, and be able to secure all  that is right and fair for its membership, the interests of all.others considered, without either clash or,calamity.  vJTTOH  S/lft.'i. .ilj/i'] 1  A llrng-stbn Lady's Expax'ioiico AvlVh  Milburn's Hcnrt and Nerve Pills  in Roliovint  dition.  ��������� this Distressing  Can-  / "I have suffered'for soma years with d  smothering sonsatioii. caused by ln'iu t  'dif?easo. 1.

If  again'this i3 checkmated by the government opening,tip plenty of work to  keep the demand for labor in excess of  the supply, the capitalist has to pay  the price which legitimate compction  says labor is "worth"., In such, cases  capital is powerless; proper wages:  work and other conditions considered:  rule, and this is, the way .it should be  in ruining in the Slocan as well as with  labor anywhere.  . ������������������  FUNINQ/ STOCK-  AND OTHER IfiVESTMENTS  We'..believe many members of the  union are anxious to have the machine  recede from its former impracticable^  position and renew negotiations with  the owners : but this is simply out of  the question. The miners' union as  officered and constituted here cannot  again; become an element to reckon  with >by the owners. Unions built, on  liberal ^principles ' having always the  welfare Of the country as well .as their  own financial gains at heart,and standing aloof, from outside associations  whose tendencies are extremely socialistic, can always hope to be regarded  with public favor ; but when,they, are  officered by '..men whose resolutions arc  of , tho "rule, or ruiri" stamp, theyJ'oan  never hope to become a' powerful factor  with the Canadian people. The connections of the union here are its most  serious drawback, aiid will ever stand  in the way of its permanent success.  What the ultimate intentions of the  owners are, we do not know ; nor have  we knowledge of whence their future  employes are to come, We do know,  however,  that it is their  intention  to  ��������� *  control their own properties and work  them with suitable men. at reasonable  wages, work considered, and.arc at almost any time ready to receive propositions from miners on these lines, but  they are done forever with the union  machine.  The Silvertonian says in criticising  the Royal commission to investigate  the situation in the Slocan,'.'Could any  one think of a better scheme for the  disintegration of the local miners'  unions. * * '* Thus for a beginning we  would see two factions among the now  united miners. * * * They could hot  .hope to be able to take up the strike  where they loft off owing to the likely  presence of a great many strange miners in their midst." _ All of which goes  to show that though the heavens fall  and the earth go up in smoke, the miners' unions must be kept intact. .They  are the only things in heaven or on  earth that are worth contending for.  We may, however, assure our neighbor  that these same unions must come off  their high horses, and, as at present  constituted, break up of their own  weaknesses, before they can ever again  become a- considerable element in tho  settlement of the Slocan difficulty.  An exchange to the south of us does  not like our criticisms of the actions  of tlie miners'union. We may add  that there are scores of honest niiners,  members of the union too, who in their  hearts criticise as we do. The great  body of the union felt that when the  owners met them more thin half way,  and thoy by a heavy vote decided to  accept the offer, that everything was  settled. They know,and we know, that  the after conditions of tho unien,  which prevented a settlement, were intended to be a delusion and a snare to  entrap the owners. There are scores  in the union,who do not like intents to  deceive any more than others do. The  public, one and all, feel for those miners who honestly want to go to work,  and are preyented from doing so by  the machine of the union.  "I had female trouble for eight  years,"; writes Mrs. L. J. Dennis, of  828 East College St., Jacksonville,-  Ills. " Words'cannot express what I  suffered. I sought relief among the  ���������medical profession and found none.  Friends urged ihe to try Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription. When I commenced taking this medicine I weighed ninety-five pounds.;-; Now. I weigh  one hundred and fifty-six pounds���������  inore than I ever weighed before.

When bespeak* of "business men," bo  takes his cue Irom one or two only,  whoso sympathies and influences are  well known. It might hot be.out of  place to ask what these "business men"  have done to help the owners in the  , past, by doing what they could to induce'the old bunds to come to terms  with their Lite employers. It is well  known they "kicked" worse than many  of the men themselves lor the sake of  getting into tho better graces of the  men, for the money it might bring in  sales. It is not the wellnre of the men,  the owners or tho country they are  looking after, it is their own Miles and  profits. Wo, mny say the owners have  a very kindly feeling towards all business men, who either used their be-t  offices with tho men for them, or n-  frained from middling altogether; but  we know of no law, either written or  otherwise, that should induce'them to  seriously consider in the future the  - financial welfare of those who spent,  . the past six months "bucking" against  them.

As   announced   some   time  ago,   the  retirement o!     Mr. A. G. Kamiay from  the  offices  of  President and General  Manager   of   the  Canada  Life   Assur-:  ance Company took effect on  the 31st  of December.    The Bjard of Directors  at their tirst meeting of the year, held,  yo-terday, on proceeding to fill the office   of  President    elected    the   Vice-  President, Mr.  P.  W. Gates- of Hamilton,    to   that    position.    Mr.  Gates,  however, on  account of his. advanced  years and impaired health, felt  compelled  to decline  the distinction,  und  the  Hon.  George  A. Cox  was  unanimously    elected   as  President of   tho  company.  It was but just and,fitting that he  i Directors   should    turn     to  the   man  who during these forty years had labored  with Mr.  Ramsay to  make    the  company the magnificent success it is  to-day.   Starting in as an agent of the  company at the age of, 21 years,' Mr.  Cox at once brought to  bear    on  the-  business  that' tireiess energy and- indomitable will which have over   been  characteristic of the man, and to which  his position in the world, of finance is,  to-day largely   due.     Discouragement  and fatigue which would havo daunted a loss courageous spirit only served  as an incentive to greater effort when  there was a prospect of securing .business.   Personal  con-, cnience    was  net |  considered���������it was iho welfare of the I  company  that was at slako, and as a <  result of his faithful, energetic; ferv-j  ice the business grew and, prospered. I  Ar! time went by the company, recog- :  sizing the devotion of Mr.- Cox to its  welfare, gradually increased his territory, until it embraced all Ontario east  of Toronto and came to b8 recognized  as the" company's most, important  branch. In 1892 his wise counsel and  groat experience in insurance matters  won for him a place, on the Board/ of  Directors of the company, which he has  since occupied.  ��������� While the Senator's keen -judgment  and wide experience m inve: tments  have given him a cornrnanding place in  finiiucial circles,, it is , his recognjzad  position in the insurance world ot Canada which causes 'riot only the Directors of the company but its thousands  of policy-holders to turn by' common  consent to the.man who,is best fitted  to maintain its prestige and- continue  the- honorable, conservative policy  which has made the Canada Life Assurance Company almost a national institution. ���������  ��������� When in 1861 Mr; Cox first became  connected with tho company as its local  agent at P.eierboro', its business in  torce amounted to only ������3.5l'0,COD. Today; at the close of 'tlio most successful year in its history, .its business in  force stands at over $76,(100,000,' or  twenty-two times greater than m 1861.  . It will be a matter of congratulation to those interested in the company's welfare to learn that Senator  Cox will arrange to give u large share  of his personal attention to the eon-  duct of its affairs, and that he will  have the active assistance and co-op-  eiration of his son. Mr. E. XV. Cox,, the  A'-.sistmnt General Manager, who has  already had sixteen years' experience  in. the company's service.  Blemishes s^f,S, Complexion  TE.S^i-T3Vr3i33Sra?.

Mr. McPherson has not yet  fully decided on what he is going at.  Wo should not be surprised if more  prosecutions would follow that of Mr.  Hagler lor actions at the Payne tram.  It is also whispered that more actions  may be entered against Hugler for  abusive language to others than Mr.  Hand.  Wc understand that quite a number  of good niiners have got tired 01 the  wait here and have gone to the Coeur  d'Alene. That is one thing the machine of the union has done for the  place. A. few men from town also went  up to the liainbler to work.  Some changes arc to take place in  ' the hospital arrangements, it is rumored that tlie miner's' union intend to  discontinue it, but we have it as a  rumor only. It might; pay the city to  taKe it over and operate it, if some  other reasonable means of continuing  it is not decided on.  Thirty thousand miners are on strike  in Austria.

The Onlchite would like to libel the  late arrival nf Swede niiners, to see if  capital could be made against the owners that way, when it, cannot bo manufactured by any other process. Wo aro  assured that each one of the men paid  his own passage and has money besides, perhaps as much as some who  say more about it; and with but one or  two exceptions, if there are any, all  talk English. They pretended ignorance of the tongue, lor, knowing tlie  situation, they did not want to get into  conversation with any one.  ^^^^o^^^^^^oWe^^^^l?^  Established in 1892.

How often mothers arc perplexed and driven nearly to  despair by their little ones losing appetite and refusing a 11  manner of food when children will take  ������o������  ������SZEd 660  at nearlyany time.    A cup of Bovril between or at meals  is the most perfect of nourishment to give the children for  C^ftSVi  ^0������ss^0|j<J|y v^o������I|C������ OK������s-^^C������i^^^^v&fc^S^,  We are told there arc some union  men at work at the Payne, and Mr.  Hand, the manager, was told when the  Swedes went up that 11 the union men  did not come down they would be expelled Irom the union. Our inlormant  says Mr. Hand's cool reply was, "I am  not sure that even such a bull as that  would keep them out of heaven."  In speaking of the operation of the  eight-hour law in the Slocan. Mr. Mc-  Pnerson, ol Vancouver, said in tin-  House, "It was a matter ol daily occurrence that men were carried out of the  shalts insensible because ol the long  hours." Mr. McPherson would make  his lortune 11 lie would go to some  country where they pay 10 cents an  hour for lying.  Spokanc has the small-pox to a considerable extent, and the provincial  authoiities and corporation councils  are uomg what they can to prevent us  Coming across the line. Mail hags and  all mail matter are well fumigated,  and all passengers from and through  . that city who cannot show a good  clearance are sent back. Too much  care cannot be taken to prevent the  importation of the germs of that  dreaded disease.  A gentleman is circulating a petition  ;  asking signatures to a proposition  to  close the mines and stop all unnecessary work oh Sundays.   He says nine  out of ten of the miners refuse to sign it,  saying they want to make ail they can  ' here in a short time and then clear out.  What   does   the   legislature think of  giving all such the ballot to sway the  legislation of the country, when their  object is to leave it as soon as they can  : make some rnoney out of it ?  'Magistrate' Crease had to sit on a  Chinamen meelee case at Nelson the  other day, and employed a novel device to "impress the solemnity of .an  oath. He got the celestials to write  their own names in their own characters on slips of paper. He then  , threw the papers into the stove and  told his witnesses that their souls  would burn in hell as did the papers in  the stove if they did not tell the truth.  We suppose they told it, if it suited  their purposes best.  If the C.P.R. are losing it in freights  in tho Sloouir these times, they arc  making it in telegraphy. About 40  messages a day are sent from, and 50  received at the Sandon office, making  . the earnings of the office over $800 a  month. Tho agent here complains  loudly, and very properly, against the  cramped facilities at his command for  the extensive miscellaneous business,  having but two poorly equipped wires.  Very often these wires are held for  hours at a time at other places for  answers, making the service here very  unsatisfactory to all. Let the S'ocan  have more telegraph wires to suit the  business, even if it is not shipping ore.  ' The dance given on Thursday evening (Bobby Burns' anniversary) by the  band in Virginia hall   was a very successful affair.     Citizens,   miners  and  many outsiders to   the number of 80  couples or more   were in   attendance  making a very pleasant evening for all  ' concerned.    Although the exchequer  of the band   may not be  greatly enriched,   as   they   aBked   for   nothing  gratis, the boys feel very grateful for  the generous patronage of the public.  With   the good music,   equally   good  supper and the presence of so many of  the youth and beauty and good dancers  of the city and surroundings, it could  not help but be a pleasaNt affair to all  in attendance. |i  The nnprinciplcd section of the press  and their sympathisers still blame the  owners for the continued trouble, such  as it is, in the Slocan, when they know  the responsibility rests wholly on the  shoulders of the" W. F.'of M. and the  unions. The owners offered $3.25 for  stoping and higher wages for other  kinds of work. The oiler was accepted  by vote, and the unions refuse to allow  the men to accept unreservedly. The  onlyspoint in dispute in the district, i-=  whether it shall be tho unions or the  owners that sh ill manage the mines.  The oiler accepted by tho men is still  open to all good men who will apply at  the mines and take it up. What more  do they want? With tome it is of  more importance that tho unions instead of tlio country should prosper.  Will Mi. Green bring these facts before  the House and show it is the unions  and ^the XV. Y. of M. tliat are responsible for the prolonged trouble here.  "Wood's Fhosplioaine,  The Great English Remedy.  Sold and recommended by all  druggists in Canada. Only reliable medicine discovered.
