 VOL 3.���������NO. 40.  SANDON, B. C.f SATURDAY, IV1ARCH 17, 1900.  FiVE CENTS.  mm 111 sunt  One Killed and' Four Wounded, Two  Seriously but hot Fatally.  Al'hough Sandon's surroundings are  annually visited with a certain number  of snow and mud slides, these of this  year have been the exception in fatal  consequences. Until the Noble Five  of Inst week no one ever knew of two  being killed at one time; and this year  the burin Is from that were scarcely  over,until another slide gives a third  victim, leaving five more people with  almost miraculous escapes.   .  About   I o'clock'Sunday the  entire  townspeople were startled at hearing a'  crashing rumbling noise in their midst,  and  looking, tow.irds the east hill, up  from   the saw mill,   thoy   saw a  land  slide coming   from   below   the   Ruth  '   flume and carrying death and destruction in  its path���������live houses of Squire  Lovat.t's and   a  shack, where  the deceased lived were almost swept out of  existence leaving a yawning space of  blackness and debris.'  In but a  very  few seconds all was over, when throe of  Mr. Lovatt's   houses (in  one of which  Mr.Nash lived,the other'two being unoccupied) were lying iu fragments in a  hollow below piling up on the  rear of  houses   occupied   by  Mr. Sharpo   and  .   Mr. Dillie.   The, other two iu the slide  belonging to the Squire,  though quite  in ruins, were stopped in their doivn-  . ward course by coming in contact with  Mr. Donaldson's house and a live tree.  The floor and one side of the house occupied by the Fogg family were driven  almost through   the one next,   where  the Rov. J. A." Ferguson and Mr. Barron  resided.   Mr. Ferguson,who was sitting  reading at the time, was, by the peculiar lodgement of the timbers  and the'  ���������support of tlie stove.savcd from injury,  save"a   slight stunning, and   escaped  through   a   window   broken   open by  someone from   the outside.     Mr. B.tr-  ,ron, being nt Sunday School  when the  accident   occurred,   escaped    possible  dangers,   for  which  he ia,   no doubt,  duly thankful.  Following thc cries of the  eye-witnesses thc fire-alarms rang out calling i  those not already on the ground to tho  frightful scene of disaster and ruin io  aid in  thc work of rescue.   Men  and  women alike  worked to their utmost  to render any possible assistance.    Mr.  Wm. Lovatt was thc first to be rescued,  being buried to his waist in the ruins,  with face cut  and left shoulder dislocated.   Soon after extricating him Mr.  Nash found   his  wife   some   distance  below lying under a tree evidently in  a dangerous state from her bruised appearance.    Mrs. Fogg   and   her little  j?Jt1 were, in the meantime, extricated  4Vom   their    perilous   positions,    and  how they escaped with such slight injuries���������a few bruises and cuts���������coming  through such a wreck, no ono can tell,  Little Mabel, aged 6, owing to vaccination, was kept home from S.S. that day  so had a very unpleasant experience in  her young life.   She was found  crawling from beneath some boards with her  face bleeding profusely.  The inmates of   Air. Nash'*, house���������  Mrs. Nash and her brother, \V. Lovatt,  (Mr.   Nm������h   being    lortunately    ih-wn  town at the time)���������had an exceedingly  narrow escape with thoir lives.   Being  more in the centre of   the slide their  house  was swept over thc terrace to a  hollow below and entirely demolished.  As there ware fears of further slides,  and indeed one further up the Star, or  mill, gulch  came crashing down  in a  . short time,   the wounded were carried  from the neighboring houses to places  ol" safety in town.     The two- doctors,  Gomm and Power,  were immediately  on the scene giving thoir best skill and  attention to  the   injured  ones.     Mrs.  Nash   was taken   to   Mr. C. Phyphor'a  house, where upon examination it was  found her right hip was thrown   some  six or eight inches out of joint and her  face most painfully bruised. There are  full hopes of her recovery, though euff-  fcring from a nervous shock. While  Wm. Lovatt is not as seriously injured  as at first supposed, the accident is the  more regretahle in his case as but 'a  few years before he lost a leg in Music ok a and had a very narrow escapo  with his life. Tie is doing well under  hospital care.  The saddest part is yet to relate, that  of death.   Some little time elapsed before it was definitely known a man was  missing, and that he must bo buried in  the ruins, as his shack was gone-and he  was reported to  have   been seen in it  less than a half hour before.    The vie-,  tim,  W. McLeod, a bachelor   some 40  years of age, a native of Prince Edward  Island,   was   living in the uppermost  building   and was undoubtedly killed  almost instantly.   A log went through  his shack, which cut it in two, thc one  half flattened out near  the, site, and  the other   with a  stump aiid several  tons of earth carried to   the hollow below.    At once excavating was begun at  the upper part of the building; -where  his clothes,   watch,  etc.   were  found.  Later, search there wa.s abandoned,aud  a scarchjimong the debris  below was  commenced,   whore, about   6   o'clock  when  the   big stump  ���������wns raised   his  body  was found in the mud and lumber underneath.   The deceased had not  long , been up,   as   he   was  not   fully  dressed, when he was overtaken by-the  avahmche.     lie had   besn   for   some  time nightwatchmen at the Ruth, and  was a   steady   and  highly   respected  man.     While   search   was going   on,  some parties   who thought ��������� he   might  have gone to New Denver on the morning    train   telephoned " over,    but,   of  course, no word of   him could be  got.  Deceased,   by   hia   thrift   and steady  habits, had accumulated considerable  means, Having property in  his native  place, also'in Dakota, Edmonton   and  Washington,   besides   some   personal.  His  remains were taken charge of by  the Miners' Union, tho funeral leaving  the   Union hall   at   2 p. rn.   Tuesday,  making three from   similar causes in  (our clays.  The loss of property in such cases is  always great as nothing is'evcr saved  in anything like ��������� presentable shape.  Mr. Lovatt's loss in buildings cannot  be short of 53,000, and the individual  losses of the others will not be slight.  Mrs. Fogg, in addition to her household effects, lost, some $200 in cash.  To add to tho confusion of the hour,  after all tho injured had been removed,  thc lire alarm again rang out, as smoke  burst out lrom the ruins of Mrs. Fogg's  house, but the incipient fire was soon  put down. Owing lo the continuing  rain and the streams of water from the  hili, wiiicn caused tho slide, grave  fears were held of lurther disaster, consequently tlie remaining houses on the  hill were vacated, presenting at night  a dreary aspect indeed. As it fortune-  ately turned cold that night further  danger was averted and many returned  to their homes next day.  DDRD ROBERTS' .   '  lip II.

London, March 13.���������A parliamentary  paper containing the telegrams sent to  the British government by the presidents of the South African Republic  and tho Orange Free State and Great-  Britain's reply thereto was issued this  afternoon. It first gives the telegram  sent by tho two presidents,to the Mir-  quise of of Salisbury ns follows :  Bloefnfontein, March 5.���������The blood  and thc tears ot\ thousands who have  suffered by this war and tho prospect  of all moral and economic nun, wherewith South Africa is now threatened,  maice it necessary for both belligerents  to aak themselves dispassionately, and  as in tho sight oi" the living God, for  what are thev fightin-? and whether the  will of each justifies all. this appalling  misery and devastation. - With this  object, and in view of the assertions of  various British statesmen to the eil'ect  that this war was begun and is being  carried on with the sot purpose of ui>  dermining her Majesty's authority in  South Africa, and of setting up an administration over all of South Africa  independent of her Majesty's government, we consider it our duty to  solemnly declare that this war was undertaken solely as a defensive measure  to maintain the threatened independence of the South African Republic,  and is only continued in order to secure  and maintain thc incontestable independence of both republics as sovereign  international states, and to obtain the  assurance that those of her Majesty's  fiibjects who have taiccn part with "us  in this war shall siifior no harm whatever in person or property.  "On these conditions, but on these  conditions alone, are wo now, as in tlie  past, desirous of seeing peace reestablished in South Africa. While if hor  Majesty's government is determined to  destroy tho independence of .the republics, there is nothing left to"us and our  people but to persevere in the second  course already begun.  "In spite of the overwhelming prominence of the British empire we are  confident that God, who lighted tho inextinguishable lire of the love of freedom in the hearts of oursehes and-our  fathers, will not forsake us and will  accomplish his work in us and in our  dependents.  . "We hesitated to make this declaration earlier to your excellency as we  feared chat so long as the advantage  was always on our side, and so long as  our forces held defensive positions far  within her Majesty's colonies, such a  declaration might hurt the feelings  imd honor of the British people. But  now that the prestige of the British  empire may be considered to be as  sured by tlie capture of one of our  forces by her Majesty's troops, and that  we have thereby been lorced to evacuate other positions which our forces  had occupied, that difliculty is over,  and wo can no longer hesitate to clearly  inform your government and people,  in the sight of tho whole civilized  world,why wo are lighting and on what  conditions wo aro ready to restore  peace."  occupation of British territory was  merely strategic. It will also express  tho determination of the two republics  to fight to thc finish.  A dispatch to the "Daily Chronicle,  from Bloemfontein dated Tuesday  evening, March 13th, says : " Bloemfontein surrendered at 10 o'clock today.  It was occupied at noon. President  Slevn, with a majority of the fighting  bnrgheos, has iled northward."  General French was within five miles  of thc place on Monday allcrnoon. He  scuta summor.R into the town threatening to bombard unless it wis surrendered by 4 o'clock on Tucsday  morning. A white (lag was hoisted on  Tuesday morning and a deputation of  tho town council with mayor Kellner  came out to Lord Roberts at Spier Kop,  five miles south of tho town, making a  formal surrender of the place.  Lord Roberts made a state entry at  noon. He received a tremendous ovation. After visiting the public buildings he went to the official residence of  ilVilNES APSQ MINING.  The ITewet, near Silverton, is shipping 150 ounce ore.  Work continues , steadily on the  Donnelly group with prospects improving.  The owners of the Lone Star group,  at Silverton, are driving a ISO-foot  cross-cut, with which they hope to  strike the ore body.  About 3,078 tons of ore were shipped  from Slocan Lake points last year. The  shipments from that district this year  so far are : The Bosun, 60 tons ; Hart-  nev, 20; Emily Edith, 20 ; Vancouver,  20": Arlington, 1C0 ; Black Prince, 60. t  Total, 340 tons.  The Noble Five lias paid oil' all hands  and shut down all its workings.   It  is  not likely that operations will"be begun  tlie president followed by   a cheering ' again, to any extent    '"'"  " ~  * '"  crowd, who waved a   British flag   **'' '      *     *'------  who waved a British flag and  sang the British national songs. Thev  were in a condition of frenzied excitement.  The War Situation.  Krngcrism is evidently drawing to a  close in  South   Africa.     Kruger   and  Steyn, thc presidents of the two republics, are now on their knees praying for  peace,  and talking   of "the  blood   of  thousands."     Had   Kruger   possessed  more of  this alleged feeling of humanity   for   the last   15   years  this   war  would never have been begun.    It may  be that, before the Treaties of Pretoria  and London  in  1SS1 and 1S84, respectively, the British government, through  the   South  African Company,  treated  thc Boers harshly.   Tn  fact it will not  bo  disputed   by  any   fair   man   that  harshness   was    then   common:   but  when  Kruger voluntarily signed treaties in those years with the British government,   when  he   in those   treaties  promised to give equal liboiLie? to all  nationalties   within   his  domains   he  ought to have lived up to his pledges.  Refusing schools,   tho right to worship  m their own particular faith���������whether  Roman Catholic  or Protestant���������equal  taxation and tne  franchise to Uitland-  ers was not tho way to retain  the respect  of   advancing civilization.     As  matters now appear, the complete subjugation  of Bloeml'ontein in  a day or  two, the surrender of Pretoria in a few  weeks, tho escape of Kruger for his life  and tho  annexation of tho Transvaal  and tho Free State to  Great Britain as  a colony must follow before peace can  be agreed to.   There is  one thing certain���������Kruger   will   never  again  have  authoiity to deal with that territory as  ho pleases.   It will cost Great Britain  a great deal in loss of life and money ;  but now that reasonable liberty to her  subjects in   that country rendered war  necessary, nothing shurt of an absolute  guarantee   for   their freedom   for   all  time can bring hostilities to a termination.  Since writing   the above   President  Stevn has surrendered Bloemfontein.  till the tunnels  are dry in May or" June. There are  some circumstances surrounding the  property, we are not at liberty to disclose, but if one of the number eventuates the property may be worked very  extensively during the summer. At  present, however, no one knows what.  the future mav bring forth.  Rossland Now in the Throes.  A Quiet Home Wedding.  The  Lvons,  BOSTOCK CUR FINALS.

Tho Daily News  has the following dispatch from Pretoria dated Monday, which says : Lord  Salisbury's reply has been.received and  a Boer refutation of the British contention is under consideration. It will  deny that any annexation has been  jsaade, and it will be declared that the  residence of Mr. and Mrs. Geo.  Cody avenue, was at 6 o'clock  Wednesday morning tho seend of the  marriage ol" two of our most popular  young people. The contracting parties  were Mi������s Nellie Beamis, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lyons, and Mr.  John S. Gusty, manager of P. Burns it  Co.'s business hero, tlie Rev. A. M. San-  lord tying thc Gordon knot. The wedding was a very quiet affair, only a fow  family friends being present, but not  withstanding the simplicity, the bride  maintained tho due marriage solemnity, looking her pretty self attired in  white. Her sister, Miss May (Beamis)  Lyons, who wore a dress of cream and  blue, wns bridesmaid, while thc groom  was supported by Mr. Geo. Clark.  Thc wedding is tho culmination of a  last summer's romance, having its  origin, we believe, in the 4th of July  celebration at Three Forks, whereby  Air. Gusty won for his bride ono of  Sandon's most charming young ladies;  but Gusty always was a prize winner,  carrying his usual good luck into the  matrimonial field. After a sumptuous  wedding breakfast the new devotees ol  Hy-me'ii*(with the guests present) were  driven to the C. P. R. depot, where  took the S O'clock train for a short, trip  to Nelson and Rossland, amid thc customary shower of good wishes, rice,  etc., not forgetting some of "Slim's"  old boots. On their return, they will  take up housekeeping in the comfortable suite of rooms oyer P. Burns &  Co.'s shop, lately fitted up. Alany useful and costly tokens of esteem were  received by the bride and groom, and  all join in wishing them long life and  happiness supreme.  And now "Rosslaiid is over its head  in labor troubles. ALiny of the mines  have their machinery adjusted and are  ready to start up, but are resolved ou  starting under the contract system���������  that is paying every man for the work  he does. In such case, the good man'  will get good pay and thc inferior man  loivcr wages. The machines of the  miners' unions, that is the Coeur  d'Alene element oppose this and the  mines arc now full of special constables  to protect miners at work under contract. It has come to a pretty pass, in  the attain* of a British colony wheu the  owner is debarred of the right" to say"  how his property shall be worked, anct*.  when an alien organization without .a,.  dollar's worth of 'interest iu the country shall have the power to say how its .  Affairs shall be managed.  Wo have all along said the franchise  of this country is too liberal.   We regard   the   permanent   resident,   often  commencing without a dollar, but saving from   year to year   to   provide  a.  homo  for himself and  fa nily, as the  ideal unit of the .voting power of this  or any country.    Such   people rnreiy  breed disturbance���������they   always  look  for the   prosperity of the country in  which they live,, knowing its prosperity is theirs.   It is to tho men who are  hero today, while wages are good,  and  away tomorrow to where wages may be  better,   never  making  an investment  anywhere, small or largo, but ever agitating for their own immcd;ate, selfish  ends, that   ballots   should  be denied.  When   the   ballot is  placed in   their  hands the two-penny half-penny ward  politician   is ever ready   to  purchase  such votes by legislation,  often crippling   the   material interests   of   the  country, and   starving out   the legitimate industrial  element.   These men  arc always the leaders of agitation,that  result in n<itional retrogression or ruin,  and   the   sooner they are denied  the  ballot thc sooner will we havo a much  healthier condition of   things in this  province.   This idea may not bring us  much popularity in some quarters, but  wo know it is  tho one  for thc welfare  of tho country.  Nelson Miners Quit Woik.

Wk  m  SATURDAY.  MARCH. 17, 3900.  LET US REASON TOGETHER.  Because .some men nnd newspapers  do not readily accede to the views of  ��������� executives of miners' unions and se-lf-  constituted champions of labor nnd  Is-hor organizations they are at once  licensed of being in tho employ of the  mine owner-!, enemies of labor, or  being in some other way, for financial  reasons, infiuene'd in their course of  action. In the first place, persons who  come to such conclusions should be  sure, after properly considering all the  circumstances and conditions bearing  ���������on the matter, that the contentions of  ���������unions- and labor leaders aro in every  respect absolutely reasonable and just  ���������in every respect faultless. We venture to say, however, that there is not  -one ont-of every thousand, who takes  exception to those who in any way  question tho course of theso people,  that ever {rives the claims of labor organizations reasonable consideration.  It goes without saying, however, that  if conditions warranted  it every man  in the province,   with the possible exception of some   mine owners,  would  like to see. the   average miner of the  camp getting from three to four dollars  ���������a day.   But  the average man, outside  of the two extremes   most interested,  to be reasonable, must look at all the  circumstances bearing  on   tho situation,   if   tho extremes   do not.     We  ---.11 kuow  that the  more money that  ���������is circulated for labor in oil industrial  centres the better it is  for commercial  interests, regardless of  class.    It   is,  however, a mistake for business men to  .assume that it is alone high wages to a  iew that make a camp prosperous.   It  is the volume of money in circulation,  regardless   of  the  number  of  circulators, that docs it.  The point, however, is this, and tho  sooner the entire public grasp it  and  .:������re,influenced by its fVrcc thc better  for all concerned.   The fhst thing is to  get capital interested and circulated in  investments.   Without this all efforts  of every nature and kind must  prove  . \inavailing.   If the laws of the country  encourage the income, the investment  and the operations of capital, the employment of labor is  the  correlative  .consequence.   The.men then  have it  :m their own hands, without legislative  interference of any character or nature,  ��������� to fix their own wages and make them  steady   at   rates  consistent   with  the  profits of the enterprises of  the country.   If there is   employment but  for  2000 operatives, and 4000 rush in  for  the positions low  wages is the   iend-  ency.   If. on the other hand, to meet  ,  the .demand  less than 2000 operatives  come in  they will all get the highest  wages the profits of the industry can  stand.   Capital wants to mukc money  .-as badly as men want wages; but capital is always in  a.position   to avert  .ilosses in the labor market and always  will avert them.   In the Kootenay today theie is the most urgent need for  iinore  capital.    There is an immense  tnumber of properties -in  the hands of  "men without the means to work them.  There is an unlimited number more in  the altogether undeveloped condition  awaiting capital for experimental purposes, and  a further large number in  the low-grade order   that can only be  "worked by capital under thc most favorable conditions... Thus further capital   must be the. mainspring of   our  future progress or retrogression.  Prom: the reports from the Transvaal, it is as certain as the sun riscB  nnd sets lhat a great rush of capital  ���������will be made there as soon us thc war  is over and the country becomes subject to British rule and government.  Is our government doing anything to  secure that capital which we urgently  require, before it is lost tons forever?  Here we have spent the most advantageous year in the history of the province, if properly employed, tinkering  with legislation to appease a sentiment  instead of grappling with questions  most momentous in the possibilities  of tlie state, and it appears the end is  ���������act yet.  The only thing that can be done now  is to at. once erase all legislation that  as the cause of/ past friction,, assure  capitalists that there will be no more  interference with the labor and mining  laws of the country leaving labor and  capital free to adjust their own differences, and hope for the best under unlimited and unrestricted freedom.

European, at the present time, from  the industrial standpoint, would be to  arouse such an avalanche of hostility  and adverse criticism that few would  care to encounter. But the world has  not grown in a day, nor is its future  development with all its national  changes to be the product of an hour.  This sentiment against the Chinaman  is sure sooner or later to be overcome.  It is not as a matter of justice to the  present industrial element, for its immediate necessities, either fair or right  to place it in competition with the average Chinaman's requirements ; but the  comparison will come.  There are today   400.000,000 people  in China, four times the entire population   of  the   whole   North  American  continent.   They are fast: learning the  ways of American and Euror-ean civilization, and will, therefore, yet become  a great manufacturing people,'producing  for the American  and   European  markets.   From the  nature of industrial economy, as they become exporters of manufactures, they will become  importers  of   manufactured   products  also, and contact with outside civilization will induce them to place a higher  value  upon   their labor   and its ,'prd-  cincts.   This latter fact will, of' course,  lessen tlie damaging consequences of  cheap labor, but it can never overcome  them.     Their present willingness   to  work for low wages arises from a twofold  cause���������their simplicity of   every  day living, .and,  therefore, few wants,  and   the more    extensive   purchasing  power of a small sum of money in the  country of  their birth,  to which   they  all calculate to return.   Advancement  in  the" ways of civilization appears to  cultivate waste in the methods of living and, as a  consequence, creates  a  demand for,higher   wages   for   labor.  While, therefore, the advancement now  going on in China must so increase the  cost of living  as   to revolutionise   the  Chinaman's   demands   in    the    labor  market   and m&ke  him   more nearly  conform to  the rule among his  European, brethren, yet it does not change  the fact that America and Europe will  yet, in a new channel, have  to reckon,  and in a more defenceless way,  with  the cheap labor of China.   Manufactures now produced   in   America   and  England   such  as cotton, goods, silks,  many lines of hardware, etc., etc., that  are   now   produced not only for   consumption   but   also   for   export,   will  shortly be produced in China for export to Europe aud  America.    .This  means that feel as we may about it, we  are bound  to find   in China a   strong  competitor in our labor markets, and  the only cure is to set our houses  well,  in order to be prepared for it.  tare and nli state publications.   Three  months after  thc Liberals came into  power, through Jce's false pledges, and  in three months after that Joe himself  introduced   the Act to wipe   out- the  f-epnrato schools and the. dual language  svsti.ni.   That is the kind of man Mar-  tin is.   He trampled  his   own  solemn  pledges under foot  to catch the majority vote of Manitoba,   that he considered to  be Protestant.    Wo assure the  electors of B. C. that he,is the same old  Joseph still with a' coat of many colors,  and  will trample any  pledge  hc-niay  make tho people of British Columbia  under   foot   as   he did  those   to   the  Roman Catholics of   Manitoba, if he  can gain an end by so doing.   He now  promises the referendum on the eight-  hour law.   If he is sincere, why did ho  not take a vote on the question before  ho passed the Act?   There is not tho  slightest   assurance   in   any     pledge  Joseph  made that he will carry it out.  He knows that in case thc referendum  should show a majority for the law he  would argue that  that majority was of  small account, as it  was  made up  of  men who had ho interest iii the country ; and in case it did non carry, there  would only be a repeal after the country had lost, two or three  of   tho best  years of  its   history.    The people of  this country have had enough of humbug without courting still another dose  from Joseph.    A  year  ago   he introduced.the Alien Labor Act to embarrass Laurier, then at Washington, and  now he says there is no longer uso for  it, because Laurier has returned.  While party government on Federal  lines is undoubtedly preferable to the  form of government we have had in ;B.  C. for years past. The Review has no  hesitation in saying the present i3 a  most opportune time to introduce it.  Toe Martin is nt the head of a wing of  t he Libera), party, forming a government. He is distrusted by the best  elements of that party. Inaction on  the nart of the Conservative party will  widen the gap between thc Martin and  anti-Martin elements of that party.  An election on other than Federal  lino will swing three-quarters of the  votCBof the country against Martin and  settle him forever. On the defeat of  Martin Federal lines introduced would  draw to the Conservatives a portion of  Martin's following, and make it a solid  party in the country for generations,  just as the Baldwin and Lefontaine elements of the Liberal party in Eastern  Canada wero drawn to the Conservatives in 1854, forming the Liberal-Conservative party from that day to this.  We simply throw out the hint for  future reference.  te.'PBERCf-S'-  &DEN MEOECA  m  u  the food supplies warmth  and strength; without it the  digestion, the muscles, the  nerves and the brain are  weak, and general debility-  follows.

Gentlemen, this kind of thing  won't do, it cuts both ways. This is  the pessimistic boyeot of a very narrow mind, arising out of our stand in  the labor trouble. Everybody admits  the breaking up'of the'deadloek was a  righteous act, in the interest of the  camp ; and instead of seeking to pro-  Jong it by advocating an indefensible  course, as some of the pet prints did,  we advocated a course that led to thc  settlement. Instead, then, in tlie public interest, of boycotting The Review  should be thanked, as it is "by-all the  liberal minded men of. the district.  The Review never recommended low  wages, as some of pur opponents charge  ���������it merely advised a settlement on  the basis of payment for corresponding  results, to which no fair man can object. This town is too small, and the  interests of the entire community a*-e"  so identical that we cannot afford to  have either cliques or sections the result of,animus or ill-feeling. The' Review has for its friends, at least, a large  majority of the patronising portion of  the community, and boycotting by the*  the'minority will only tend to arouse  retaliation, a result the general public  should deeply deplore. At the present,  wo will name no one, but simply,allow  tiuie to influence their better judgment,  as we are fully convinced it will.  An exchange says that the local  miners' uniens have as good a right to  affiliate with the Western Federation  of Miners as provincial capital has to  affiliate with outside capital.

Will our neighbor, however,  make good its. intimation and show  wherein the Silver-Lead Mines Association of tuo Slocan is in affiliation  with any outside organization in any  way, shape or manner? An ounce of  proof is worth a ton of speculation.  Thc Silvertonian will have it that  the W. F. of M. has a perfect right to  exercise dictatorial powers in B. C.

In  answer to the British request for the  establishment of a boundary line at a  point which would give England control practically ol the Lynn canil,  Secretary May recently sent, an exhaustive memorandum, which, in ths-  opinion of the American officials, clearly refutes the British claim and shows  conclusively that the waterway belongs  to the United States The British government have not answered tho cora-  "uiunicaiion. There is no doubt in the  minds <-f the officials that the loyalty  of Canada to Great, Britain will cause  the London government to be more insistent of the thc claims of the Dominion. , Thc United States, however, holds  that the Lynn canal is its property, and  at present has 110' intention of relinquishing it.

He saw armed men and  masked men, but the seriousness of the  situation did not appear to him until  after the mill was blown up. rAt thc  time he said, an unknown man'pinned  a ribbon on his coat, but there was no  explanation of its meaning. From a  distance he saw explosions, and afterwards saw one of the men, Shayne,  lying shot' on the roadside.  Richness of Cape Nome.  r Washington, D.C., March 10.���������Under  date Dawson City, Jan. 14. Vice Council  Morrison reported that IU expeditions  have left Dawson for Cape Nome since  Dec. 6, -liulassoon as thc weather moderates many more will start. The  . population of Dawson is 0,000 less than  last year. Late news from Nome confirms the reports of the richness of the  district, and announces new finds in  the interior, but tho lack of fuel prohibits these being worked in winter.  Typhoid feVer has appeared with increasing mortality. In Dawson the  tevenuc from liquor permits for the  year is placed at 8100,000. Saloon  licenses are worth $2,500 per annum.  Prices are still up. Profits in drugs  are placed at 300 per cent.,groceries at  200 per cent., and hardware at 400  per cent.  A Word About Slides.  The late sad accidents at and in the  vicinity of Sandon were clenlorable  in their consequences, but It would appear they were not direful enough to  satisfy some outside papers, whose  hap-hazzard reports magnify tho disasters three-fold. The Spokesman-Review has three men killed in the Noble  Pivc slide in place of two, and has the  slide at Sandon mixed up with a mining accident near Kaslo and has them  happening at different places in the  town, besides several rock and grayel  slides which have never been heard of  here. These accidents are prejudicial  enough to Sandon without magnifying  them. They have their their beaten  paths and likely places and people  should, as far'as possible, avoid building or living 111 dangerous localities.  We do not mean to say absolute safety  jn any spot in these mountain fast-  31 esses, for, as in the open country the  terrible cyclones sometimes occur out  of known belts, so slides, like the one  of Sunday, may come where not looked  for. Draws, ravines and old washes  3houki be avoided, thus lesseuing the  -���������probable dangers.

Insufficient quantity or poor quality of  the blood is ono of tho evil results that  usually follow any derangement of the  heart.  If the heart becomes weakened in any  way it cannot pump tho blood to the lungs  as it should, there to bo purified and. i'm-  prognated with tho life-giving oxygen.  As a result tha  blood deteriorates.

There is weakness, tirodnoss,  shortness of breath and palpitat ion. Whou  those snJToring from thin or watery blood  start taking Milburn's Heart and Norve  Pills they aro assured of a cure. Every  dose acts on tho heart itself, causing it  to beat strong, stoady and regular.  Every dose, too, introduces into the  blood those vital elements necessary to  iniiko it rich and red.  Soon tho palo chock takes on tho rosy  liuo of health, there is strength instead of  weakness, energy 'and activity take the  pineo oE tiredness and lassitude.  Miss M.

From this my uncle went on from  accomplishing one annoyance upon bis  rival to another, until he conceived tho  most villainous pieco of mischief of  all.  Jt was (he night of the sixth full  ii-Kiuii, in Iho 1,0*41)1 h year of I he Ue-  gira, that I set out for tho rose garden of our friend  to  meet Alxurn   as  r ,i     i-������������������....r���������-.r ..ntl    usuiil;  not,   howc.ver, ��������� wii houl   misgiv-  honor in the eyes ot the Governor and   .^  -^  ^  ^^ uppoart.d  (o jje .���������  esteem in that of his fellow-citizens  A!������is! for my prospects, .however, ,In*.  was gathered to tho arms of tlie Prophet when I was but an infant, and  1 passed under the guardianship of an  uncle���������a sage magician of the naino  of Hassan ibn Afzul.  Now, it happened Unit in the samo  city whore we dwelt.^and where my  uncle practiced his exalted profession  there lived another inngician, called  Afzul ibn Hassan, between whom and  my uncle thero existod a rivalry so 1 it-  tor and far reaching in its conse-  ���������-���������uences lhat tho fame of it extended  to the borders of Persia.  - It is said that even among the learned of the Gioaurs protessionitl jealousy  at times leada to strange acts of retaliation ; but, illustrious sir, if can easily bo understood that when tho contending parties for public favor are  powerful magicians what peek** or  trouble they may heap upon each other's head.  During my childhood scarcely a day  passed, but lhat we would suffer from  the effects of some enchantment bo-  Ing directed at our well being, and,  , doubtless, as my uncle had slightly  the advantage in power and knowledge,  of his nrt, the household of Afzul ibn  Ilassan suffered even to a greater extent.  Without entering too minutely into  the details of the situation it will suffice, as an example ot what wo endured, to say that our perfumes wore  often turned into tho vilost of odors,  our food into tho most unpalatable  dishes, our house filled with smoke,  shoes with* scorpions and beds with  cockroaches,  i What my uncle accomplished for Afzul ibn Hassan I do not know; bul  doubtless he was bountifully supplied  with (hose lessor vexations, which  harass the soul beyond the limits of  patience. In general my undo adopted a grave demeanor, as became one  of his learned profession, so that when  his humor bubbled over, like the seething mess In one of his crucibles, then  I judged that Afzul ibn Hassan was  plucking the hairs vout of his beard  and petitioning Allah for vengeance.  At tho time, when I reached my sixteenth year, my undo, considering that  r had m.ade sufficient progress in the  study of astrolgoy, determined to sd-  vance me to tho higher branch ot his  work���������the science ot magic���������when two  events occurred, bearing directly upon  wie another, which changed the whole  course of my life.  In the first place I fell passionately  in love with Ihe most boaufiful o-ron-  tuiro in all' Persia, whose name was  (Uzura, who finally reciprocated my  sentiment, anil who. strangely enough,  was the daughter of my uncle's bitter  rival; and second, my uncle unravelled  the grand secret of night metnmor-  phosiation, or the changing of the  form, of a.creature at sundown, upon  which both Iho magicians had assiduously  labored  for years.  Considering the .relations which existed between Alzura's father arid my  U'ncle, neither of us had dared to make  known our mutual affection, but we  contrived to meet secretly In the rose  garden of a friendly astrologer, who  possesed sufficient power to screen pur  actions. At what'��������� length I could, dilate upon those blissful hours; the  moon, (hat friend of lovers, peeping  ind smiling upon our happiness  through sheltering foliage, tho sweet-  3st flowers perfuming the air upon  nrhich we exchanged vows of unalter-  ible, devotion, our way illuminated by  Those winged insect lanterns of the  Bast, myriads of which flitted in the  "oid   and  clungto evary   branch  and, ....      _ ���������_  twig.    Ah,     what   entrancing     nights | thy   pigheaded     obstinacy   it    will   Tic  wero  those,   to be  terminated   by one   well:  it, not.   then   thou   had.st  better  xuberanl spirits, repeal cdiy stio'ing  bis venerable beard and exclaiming,  " Masliallnli I bul Afzul ibn Hassan  will now lie at m.v tdoor ns a supplicant."  1 entered the garden and quickly  m.-id ! my wry to our place ot nieeling,  but for the firsl tim,e for many moons  Aizura was no! (hero to givo mo greeting. For o while I paced back and  forth, momentarily expecting ber ap-  jxi.'i rn n ce, and then I vou lured to call  her hy name, softly al firsl, aud then  a little louder���������"Aizura, Aizura, Aizura!" but the only response that  came to me wns the plaintive meow of  an ill favored looking, hungry visaged  v������'llr>w pm I I hn I hurl [>er*ii������l r������nl I v followed up and down in my footsteps.  " Hisht !" I at last cried. "Get  thee gone, brute. Away, and fill thy  slornie-h with mice, as from Iho sound  of I hy voice it iiwiist be as hollow as  a drun." Then I hit at it with a  switch, but while eluding my blows  the cat still kept close it hand, ceas-  in*r not its mournful wail.  Then, as I stood tor a moment regarding the creature with no littlo  surprise at the constancy with which  it had attached itself to my person,  tho poor beast raised 'its oyes to mine  with a gazo so full of pathetic meaning that at once tlie conviclion forced itsolf upon my mind lhat ray vindictive uncle had changed the form of  the beautiful Aizura into lhat hideous  bone protruding grimalkin.  " Alas, Alzurn !" I cried. " Surely thy  sweet nature cannot bo embodied in  sucli an ungainly shape. Alas, ulasl"  and taking Ihe poor creature into my  arms,   I wept   bitterly.  Par inLo the nighl I caressed and  soothed my transformed Aizura, st rolling her unkempt coat, so that tho fur  flew into my nostrils; permilling her,  without a protest, to sharpen hor tal  ons in rn.y limbs, so that they were  covered with scratches, and allowing  her lo crawl ill over mo, for which T  suffered torments on account of Iho  parasites with which my uncle had  not omitted to provide hor nlenlifully.  Tn deep grief I finally parted from  my enchanted lady, detormined, however, to lay tho whole case before my  uncle on the morrow, and entreat him,  wilh ail the eloquence of a desperate  lover, to withdraw the spell from" one  who was corrniletely innocent of any  share in her father's offence.  This inlenlion I sought the earliest  opportunity to carry out, but if I anticipated any sympathy or deviation  in his cruel purpose I was quickly undeceived. When I made known to him  my passion for his rival's daughter,  and that we had already exchanged  vows of fidelity bis disf ross and subsequent rage were fearful to behold.  First of all, he charged me with lhe  basest ingratitude, pointing out tha  when he took me under his protection  as an orphan little did ho imagine that  I would grow up to make common  cause   with   his  enemy.  rt* wis of no avail that I tried, to argue the injustice of holding Alzure responsible for her father's actions. At  the mere mention of Afzul ibn Hassan's name my uncle's countenance bo-  cimo distorted with fury as he shouted at me, "Choose, thou cobra that I  have laken into ray bosom, between  Hassan ibn Afzul, thy benefactor, nnd  Afzul ibn  Hassan, my enemy."  I truthfully answered thai 1 naturally preferred: to choose the one from  whom I had received so much kindness and from whom I anticipated no  harm'.   "  "Then thou wilt swear by<; the holy  Kaaba," said he sternly," "never more  to speak, or by sign communicate, with  that jade of Afzul ibn Hassan's whom;  thou._ callest  Aizura."  "Sir," I protested, with such calmness and decision, as I'was able to  summon to command,; "'.that >I cannot  do. for she is no jade, but verily tho  light of my existence."     ' ;'  ��������� My undo threw back his luwid and  laughed, derisively," Light of thy existence, forsooth I" he cried. "Thou  shale, in truth, make fuel for her existence, if thou dost not pay heed to  my   word.   "Look  you,   boy,"   and   lie  san might have discovered an anlidoto  to my uncle's spell and thus preserved his daughter from the hateful  change.  But alas 1 no sooner had I arrived at  our, place ot meeting than I was welcomed, by the same plain! ivo " Meow,"  and, with tail erecL, Aizura trotted  out  from   under  a bush.  At flint moment, I remember, I been mo ronscious nf a curious shrinking  sons-it ion throughout my limbs. Smaller and smaller I seemed lo becoino,  while each instant Aizura appeared to  girow larger and larger' until sho verily looked to be a monster Iho sizo  of a house. Then an awful terror Hei stud my bones, and making ono desperate spring, I scuttled away on four  little legs to a small crevice in tho  garden wall, where I endeavored to  hide myself in iis furlherest. recess.  Though I realized it not at tho lime,  my inhuman undo hnd, in the furtherance ot his animosity, changed me  inloa mouse, so that I might become a  supper instead of a husband for the  fami.shed Aizura.  Of the full horror of lhat night I  am unable to find words lo fittingly  describe I lie situation. Conceive yourself, O illustrious one, cramped nt lhe  inner extremity of a small hole, with  two enormous green eyes, nppenring  as the size of two full moons, glaring  in with hungry watchfulness. Imagine, if you are ible, Iho hot breath of.  n terrible monster, every now and  I hen filling the liny retreat, and a  seemingly gigantic paw at intervals  thrust within almost a hair's breadth  of your shivering form, in strenuous  endeavor  to  hook you  out.  Such was my, position for seven unending hours���������ho'ii.s (hat seemed liko  seven decades. Toward morning my  senses must have become so slupefied  with terror that I lost consciousness,  until I suddenly found Ibat daylight  had come, that f had resumed my original form and that Aizura waa nowhere  to  be seen.  I paused, regarding m.v surroundings as a man that has awakened from  a horrible dream. Then, as the reality ot it all w.as made plain, and a  mighty dread of becoming the toy of  Alzura's piw3took possession of my  being, I turned lo flee by the first  road from my uncle's vengeance, when  I encountered out friendly astrologer  of  the  garden.  "Whither in such haste?" ho asked,  accosting me in  a kindly  tone.  I told him briefly of my experience  of the previous night, saying that no  consideration would induce mo to  din nee a repetition. "Farewell!" I  cried, "arid may Allah protect you, I  desire io make all haste to a placo se-  cuire from my uncle's malicious influence.  " Stay," said he, " You will not suffer a repetition of the last night's enchant men t, for I oan see that Afzul  ibn Hassan is even now successfully  working a spell to counteract your itn-  p|������>'s dfsiirnR. In *iriy ense, I will givo  you a talisman1 lo render you proof  against his charm." and he handed me  a dark, transparent stone, upon which  was engraved a verse from tho Koran"  " I have given Alzirre a. similar charm  to protect  her also," he concluded.  I thanked him profusely, and, feeling  assured by his assertion that the stone  would protect us both from further  misfortune, awaited without fpar tho  events of the night to come. Now it  happened that Afzul ibn na-ssan. working upon tin1 same problem, which my  uncle bad solved, himself that day discovered the secret of night metamorphosis and resolved lo change my undo into a rat at the s-ime time that  my undo determined to transform his  rival inlo an animal of the samo species, so I hat when night fell bo! h ma'gi-  cians found themselves suddenly confronting each other in the shapes of  two vermin with all their hatred  retained.

Much depressed in spirits I left my  uncle's house, determined nevertheless  that; come what ill fate might I would  remrvin faithful to Aizura.  During the remainder of that day  I wandered without purpose .up nhd  down the bazaars, so preoccupied with  the dismal outlook that I passed by-  friends and acquaintances without returning their salutations and stared  aimlessly at objects which loft no imprint  upon  my mind.

But her welcome was not of the hearty  kind 1 expected from a west country  woman. She greeted me without enthusiasm. I observed that we were almost  strangers to one another, and she iiiudo  no professions of wishing we might be  better nciiuainted.  "You'll find us very dull and lonely  here, Florrie," she snid. "You won't want  to stay long."  During the days that followed she often  asked me if I were not getting tired of  the place, in a style suggesting that she  would not bo sorry if I left. One morning she observed to me: "I am expecting  n visitor here, Florrie. Ho may come any  day, I'm not sure of a particular time. It  ���������it is a gentleman who is coming to see  the farm. Y'ou know 1 am selling the  place.   I intend goiiiK to Ameiica."  It was the first time I had heard of any  of her plans, and I observed with what  difficulty she now spoke of theui.  One morning"; a few days afterward,  she said she must drive into the town for  business and would be absent all dny. I  might be lonely, added she. Would I not  come with her?    ,  "Oh, I've plenty to amuse myself with,"  I answered. "I shan't feel dull, and who  knows?���������your possible purchaser may  turn' up, and I can show him the farm.  What's his name, in ease he should turn  up?" said I, just to teaso her.  "His name? Hartlnnd," she answered,  in a suppressed tone,  I watched her drive away, our maid  beside her. Eliza could not understand  I was staying at home for my own pleasure and tried lo cater for my amusement  before she left.  "One o' they convicts from Prince's  Town's escaped," she said to mo, when  Annie was out of the way. " 'Tin nil  here in the paper. I'll leave It for you to  read, since you're not able to come with  us, Miss Florrie."  She thrust a dirty local pnper, some  two days old, into my hand, and then  ran after Annie, who was calling her.  After they loft I read the account of  the convict's escape with no particular  interest. It was written in a Kvn������atiouaI  style, giving a graphic description of  the man, Jim Phipps, who was under  sentence of 25 years for manslaughter  under such doubtful cireiiuistances that  it seemed almost like murder.  Later iu the morning some one opened  the gate. I saw a tall, /rood looking man,  clean shaved, wilh something iu his appearance that sag-jested an actor���������I knew  not why���������carryinR a knapsack over his  shoulders.  "Miss Bigwell at home?" he asked,  when I opened the door.  "No. My cousin has ���������roue to Ashburton  and won't be home tiil late." Then suddenly remembering who this mti<=l be, I  added, "Aro you not Mr. Ilartland? We  vcorc expecting you. My cousin was so  sure yon would not come while she was  nway.   But I can show yon the farm."  I offered to dispose of his l-uapi,uck, but  ho would not part with it. All my Importunities only served to make him slip if  from his shoulders, lay it on the table  and lean one. elbow on it, while, he ate  the luncheon I had prepared for him.  Had Dartmoor the effect of making'people, taciturn? thought I.  "I'm sure'you must be busy," he presently said. "Don't let mo hinder you^  I'll take a wail; round the fnim and have  .n look nt the place'."  Evidently he did not care for, uiy society. 1 reflected. He was very willing to  .leave me. Some men would have invited  me for a stroll,: or have staid to entertain-rue since he kuew I was-alone. Mr.  Hnrtland'.H behavior did not prepossess  nie in his '.favor.  1 finished some letters, made some domestic preparations and then thought of  looking for my truest.  Out of the back door I 'glanced over  the moor, where no tree or obxl ruction  hindered the view for miles. I saw Mr.  Hai'tland about a quarter of a mile from  the house, . whore' a brawling, st renin'  dashed down the hill. But whnt wr,s he  doing?

Indeed I will," T cried. "I will  bd.. nyj woid to any one."  "You can help me," he grimly remnrk������  ed.   "Is there no quicklime on the farm?"  "I think so," I replied.  "Then  fetch me some as soon aa you  can."  I returned to the farm yard, found  what wns required nnd brought it in a  basket, lie shook it over the clothes that  he had placed in the pit.  "You understand Unit you have helped  mo?" he said. "If those clothes are  found, you are respoiihible, aud you will  have to answer any inquiries the polico  may mnko." t  Shouldering the spade, he trudged into  the house.  I shall never forget the strange horror  of  thai  afternoon.    I sat pretending to  work; my visitor dozed over a magazino  in tlie back of the parlor.     We made no  attempt to converse.    Now and then ho  looked up, usually when the clock struck.  I  think he found  the time us long ns I  did.    ilis danger w.-ib uot yet passed; ho  must have chafed at the suushbe of tho  long bummer  day.     Wheels  sounded  ou'  thu road at last.  "My cousiu is coming back," said I.  "Well,  you  know  who  I  am,"  replied!  my   companion,   without   moving.     "Oo>  and tell her .Mr. Ilartland is hero."  I  went into the  passage aud told Annie.   She shook, swnwil. cauirht the wall  with her hand.    I o- ..u not comprehend  her agitation.  "Here, und I nwny!" she cried.  "I guessed rightly Unit he might come,"  I  said.     "Do   you   kuow  him   by  sight  Annie?"  "Of course I do."  Then   she  would  know  this  mnn  was  not Ilai-tUnd.    I  wondered   why he had   "  had the audacity to stay.  But Annie had entered the parlor and  greeted the man with three words.  "You are come," she said.  "I have come," he answered, adding-  and I thought he looked bij-nificaully at  me us lie spoke���������"your cdubiu has taken  good care of me."  I don't know what Annie replied.    She  soon   left   the   room,  mid   Mr. 'Hai'tland  followed her.    If he had gone with the intention of murdering her, I hud no power  to   stop   him.     M.v   nerves  were  utterly  shaken.    Whether -.he was gone a long  or short thus I could not sny. but Annia  came back ulone.  "Where's Mr. Hartland?" I said.  "He left," >-lie carelobsly replied.  The overstrain  was too much for me  and I burst into tears.  "It has been so lonely," I sobbed lu excuse, "and I don't like strangers."  Annie was very kind���������kinder thun I  had yet known her���������and when I went to  bed she came and brought me mulled  cider. I drank the stuff, but I did not  like it. It tasted funny, nnd. though I  slept, it wns with feverish dreams, nnd  presently I nwoke hot nnd restless and  could sleep nn more.  A farmhouse stirs early, but the sounda  that morning seemed enrlicr than usual.  I rose and looked out of my window. It  was neither dark nor dnwu, and on tho  road below stood a cart nnd hotho.  Two people left the farm. I watched"  them get into the cmt aud drive away.  They wove Annie nnd Mr. Hnrtlund:  More than 18 months after I had left  Brackworlhy I I,paid fiom my cousin  Annie, then in Aim-rica: ���������  ' Dear Florrie���������I nml mv liusband f������l tl.jt vm  owe -on some c-c-tlsnaUou tor an affair you cannot haie foieol'.eii Thu man whoso convict  cloth;i you helped to bury u.ij my liusl'aril.

McNeil was rescued  from the Noble Five slide by the employes who dug out the bodies of Mc-  Earlane/and Sheppard.

All three  saw the slide coming before it struck  them, but they had not time to escape  the swift destroyer.  Tlie Liberal-Conservatives of Sandon  held a.meeting last Tuesday evening,  and they decided to send no delegates  to the Nelson convention on the lGth.  They evidently believe in letting each  constituency do ns it thinks best: Tlie  meeting by a vote of two to one de-  cided to not introduce Federal party  lines in tho coming contest. Wo think  this is wise. The idea should be to  down Martin, aiid it would be, foolish  to antagonise the many Liberal votes  that will go against Martin if party  lines are not held over their heads.  Sink.Martin, and then come on , with  respectable men on both sides, is' our  view of the matter.  The   Nelson   Minstrels,   who   cam 01  , here Tuesday night to raise money for,  the "Patriotic Fund,"   did not, have a  bumper.house,   taking in some 15*40,  a  sum considerably less  than their expenses.   Would it not have been better  if the people who gave their  ������10 for  ' cigars for the Nelson "white niggers"  had handed the amount into the bank  direct,   where  the whole sum   would  have gone to relieve the sufferers lrom  the war.
