 1'   1  .'  'f  VOL. 4.���������NO. 47.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Taxes For City Seiiools.  People will yet learn tlie force oi their  Foolishness. Our city schools low cost  $L,700 a year, and to the present has all  been paid by tlie government. Commencing with July prox. a new school  law comes into force.'under which between the 1st July coming and the 1st  July, 1902, tho government will give  Sandon but $550. If the schools are to  be retained as at present, the people of  Sandon will have to put up $1 150,which,  of course, they are unable to do. This  $550 the government is paying is based  on the average of the school from tlie 1st  July to the olst of Dec. last year. .During that period, because of tho unjustifiable cranks of many parents, antagonistic to Mr. Barron, the attendance was  very low, and this low attendance gives  a small government grant and heavy  city taxes. This would lie all the less  matter if the taxes fell, not noon the  property holders, but upon the parents  whon refused to send their children to  school. For the future our government  grants will be based on our school attendance, so that if tlio people want to  avoid taxes, thoy wiil scud their children regularly to school. Each pupil  attending regularly will save the city  $20 a year in taxation.  THE LOCAL GRAFT.  W. V. Brock left on   Wednesday  'lioenix.  II.

The stall'and students in the mining  department of McGill university in  Montreal, left for a trip to British Columbia on Thusdav. They intend to  pay a visit to Sandon before  to the east.  '.. The fire chief is getting the fire apparatus into shape at the City Hall, and it  expected the fire team will commence  practice shortly. The city has recently  'added a new hose wagon and other accoutrements to the equipment.  The contract for the construction of  the tramway for the Hewett mine has  been awarded to E.A.

For Sale.���������A neat live room cottage,  with furnishings, good outbuildings in  connection, situated near the Star gulch  nnd very convenient to city. Apply on  the premises to H. Dillky.  The public were much pained to hear  of the death of J. E. Copeland, road  master of the K. & S. R. R., at Spokane  on Monday last. The deceased was in  the prime of life and a much respected  man.  The public will regret to hear of the  illness of Mrs, Oscar White, with an  ailment of thu head. So far there is no  fear of immediate serious consequences,  but wc understand tho disease is a difficult one to reach by treatment.  The militia department at Ottawa  desires every man who has fought in  South Africa., and who has changed his  address since coming home, to notify  tho department of bin present address,  so that he may receive the imperial  gratuity of $25.  A. W. Wright returned on Tuesday  evening from an extended trip over the  Nicola country, where he has been looking over some gold and copper properties. He is in ecstacies over the climate  of that country, and thinks..it is one of  much promise.  During the fiscal year there were 930  money.orders issued, representing $15,-  598, and 235 paid in the post office of  this city. The money orders paid and  thofBcvenue derived is the largest in the  district, while the salary of the Sandon  ���������postmaster is double that of any other  in the Slocan.  Mr. G. O. Buchanan, who remained in  Ottawa' behind the other silver-lead  delegates, says he has the assurance of  the government a measure will be  brought down in the House shortly that  will meet the wishes of the delegation.  If the government brings it down the  opposition is so committed to it, it. will  returning  pass without much comment, and show  the visit of the delegates was not in  vain. ,...���������''���������������������������  Howard West has recently purchased  the assay office and business of C. M.  Wilson, of Sandon, and left' New Denver on Monday to take over the business  there. Mr. West will retain his oflice  and labratory here, but will reside in  Sandon. New Denver loses and the  neighboring town wins by tho transaction. Mr. West is a young man of  sterling character, and has few equals  in the assaying business in tho. province. His removal from New Denver-  thought it may not be of long duration,  is to be sincerely regretted in all circles.  ���������Ledge.  There is an old and  true saving that  "The Lord helps those who help themselves."   A few weeks ago Mr. Burton  got it into  his   head  his  house was in  danger of landslides, and   he moved   it  across the creek ; but none too soon as  the dreaded slide came down Thursday  night  and   completely  enveloped   the  spot where the   house"  had   been, with  stumps,   logs  and   rocks.   The  house  would have been smashed and run into  the   creek   had it not been moved.    A  few days before some parties wanted to  rent a shack hard by, which was splintered and hurled across the   stream.   It  is singular that parties living nearby  did not' hear the slide (at 1 a.m) while  people living on the hill heard the crash  distinctly.  Jack Lowes left for Cape Nome on  Friday morning's train.  Wm. Todd left yesterday for Spokane  to have his eyes treated by a specialist.  The government have appropriated  $35,958 for building roads, bridges, &c,  in the Slocan riding.  J. M. Harris is building an addition  to his electric light station, to be used  as a storehouse for electrical supplies.'  For a iistic encounter between some  of the women of the west end on Thursday, a police trial will take place at 3  p. rn. to-morrow.  .   A number of  local   baseball enthusiasts   purpose   forming a club for   the  season, and   they  have  already   challenged the victors of  the New  Denver-.  Silverton game.  Commencing May 3rd, the C. P. R.  will issue tickets from Sandon to the  Halcyon Springs and return at $2.75,  leaving Friday and Saturday and returning'the following Monday."  After a long and painful illness, Mrs.  Dilley died on Thursday,and was buried  the following day in the Sandon cemetery. The Rev. Father Cole conducted  the funeral services. There was a large  turnout of,-friends and acquaintances.  It is always sad to see people taken off  at any age, but more particularly on  the sunny side of middle life.  Win. and Albert Karr returned last  Thursday after their sad mission east  some 2 weeks ago, attending the funeral  of their brother David, who was brutally  shot by a man named Bioletto. The  deed was done in cold blood, as the sequence of some old feeling. The general  opinion is he has not the slightest,  chance of saving himself from swinging.  The murdered man was known here as  a quiet, irolt'ensive man. He leaves a  wife and one child.  We understand Mr. O. M. Wilson,  assayer, has sold ont his business in  Sandon, and v>ill be leaving for the  south shortly, to regain his health which  is very poor. The city can ill-afford to  lose such men as Mr. Wilson, and his  brother, Mr. B. Wilson, who will likely  also remove later on. It is a degree of  satisfaction, however, to know he will  he succeeded by Mr. Howard West, cf  New Denver, who is so well and favorably known in his profession.  A pounding match worthy of the Cannibal Islands, took place in front of a  Sandon saloon on Tuesday evening, that  is likely to create a considerable" stir.  As the story goes, it was done at the instigation of a womon, now held at Nelson for return. A man named Gray,  who is said to have lost $300 besides, is  the victim. Two men, named respectively Cusic and Hansom, are now under  arrest and out on bail for the offence.  Rows there always will be, but the  brutal pounding by a number jumping  on to one man���������some eight in this case  ���������ought to bo stamped out effectively.  This is a British colony and British  justieo should be forced by the authorities.  St. Keyerne Co. Reorganised.  The St. Keverne Mining company has  been reorganized and capital provided  for extensive development of this young  Sandon property.  At a recent general meeting of the  company its property was sold to the St.  Keverne Mines, Limited, a company incorporated under the laws of British  Columbia, with headquarters at Mont-'  real and organized by S. Norman.  The capital of the new company is in  100,000 $1 shares and the stock is assessable to 5 cents per share. An assessment of 1 cent is to be levied shortly,  giving working capital for immediate  resumption of work.  Within the past few years the stock  of the old company has been gradually  absorbed by a Montreal syndicate. The ���������  control is held in Montreal arid.Ontario,  the chief .western stockholder being  John A. Finch, president of the old  company. ,'  Stockholders in the old company will  receive one share in the new for-10 in  the old or they will receive 3 cents per  share in cash by turning their stock in.  This offer expires June 1st, but the  officers will ask for an immediate  response.  The old company, which will be disincorporated, was organized by Sidney  Norman in 1897, with its capital in  1,000,000 $1 shares. Of this 300,000 was  placed in the treasury, sold and the  proceeds spent on the property.  Hotel Arrivals For the Week.  illNES AND -TUNING.  The Sunset at Jackson Basin shipped  21 tons from Whitewater this week.  W W. Warner says that the Wonderful will commence shipping as soon as  the roads are in good condition.  The Ivanhoe mine closed down on  Thursday for an indefinite period. Some  85 meu were laid off in consequence.  The    Sunset  mine,   Jackson   Basin, jj  shipped 16 cars of ore during the win- '  ter, amounting to 325   tons.   The returns   brought  from  $1,500 to $2,000 a  car.  Two hundred feet  of tunnelling has  been done on the Hazel at Whitewater,  so far this year, and 150  feet ia still to ,  be driven before the con tract is finished.  It is expected that the vein at 125, feet ]  will be tapped below the upper work  ings.  Denver���������W.-N. Bray tun, Aligns Cameron, Kaslo; .A. Morrison, J. Caldwell,  Portland; F. S.

Bingley is c'thc depot  of tihe East Ranksbire Regiment, and  on account of the wax the Militia bat-  taliioms were stationed there.   I rather pride myself upon my aristocratic  appearance, and I always dress rather  smartly;    therefore I was; not  much  surprised  when the sentry on guard  mistook me foir an officer and saluted me as I enteired  the barracks". Of  course I looked unconcerned, and re-  , turned  Lhe salute in an official, offhand manncir.  There was in the s'ame office as my-  ' self another civilian clerk, a very decent sort of a fellow; but he would  insist upon wearing a turn-down collar.    I overlooked this, however, and  we rubbed along very well together.  I, of course, pointed out to him the  many  advantages of wearing a 'high  collar,     telling  him  how I had been  miiistakcn ,for    an  officer,    and    ihad  been saluted as ono on several occasions.  He said that if such were the case  ���������he would try one, and the next morning 'he showed up wearing a collar  about 2 l-2in. high. That morning  ne was very quiet, and I thought that  something mus!t have upset him. I  learnt at dinner-time wihat this was'.  It appears that when he had coino  into barracks in the morning, a s!ol-  diiierr who. had been ait the depot for  seveinal years was on guard, and just  ' as he was coming in the gates this sol-  dietr 'had put his; hand up to his: head  to knock off a fly. Collins thought  that he was saluting him, and saluted  in return. <: The soldier burst out  laughing and told him that he, the  soldier, was'not an officer. Collins  seemed to think it was' my fault,' and  was quite naslty about it.  When the dancing season commenced GolLins and myself were invited to  a ball to be held in a neighboring  town, and cf course we wenL I was  in evening dress, and, though I say  it myself, I looked mare aristocratic  than ever. There was one girl there  with whom I danced, a very superior  girl, and I took to her at once. I  had been told that Bhe was; a Miss  Myers, and had an income of about  ������2,000 a year. Now, I thought, if  she knows. I am a civilian clcirk, earning about ������75 a year, she will naturally treat me with a certain amount  of indifference, so Ig-cJt Coiling;, who  said he knew her quite well, to. introduce, me to her as Lieutenant Bates',  o'f the East Ranks/hire Regiment. He  consented to do s'o, out remarked im  that nasty sarcastic manner of his  that "I must not bo disappointed if  she di'd not believo it," .  So i)t came about that 1 was introduced to her as Lieutenant Bates'  and danced with her several timca.  and upon leaving she expressed a  wish that wo should meet again.  It was about throe weeks; after this  ball that I again met Miss: Myers. It  was at a reception, and 1 had along  talk with her| and when I went home  t'hat night.I was desperately in love  with her, but I thought that my suit  ���������was 'hopeless. . For was she not an  heireaa' and I a miserable clerk? I  was, I'll confess, attracted by her fortune, and had she been.poor I might  have acted differently, but I had always said that I intended to marry  a girl with money. She actually arranged to meet me on the Wednesday  following the reception, so I believed  that at least a'he liked me.  Well, we met and I got along swimmingly. I now regretted very much  deceiving her as regarded my position  and when she had spoken about the  the Army I was in a terrible fix for  fear she should ask me s/>me question  that I should not ba able to ansjwer.  She continued to know me, however,,  as Lieutenant Bates;, and I dared not  tell  her d'ifferently.  .AVell, things went on like this; for  more than a month, during which  time I mett Iher on several occasions.  One evening when I left Her she told  mo that she was! coming to Bingley  on tho followiing Wednesday, and if I  wiished she would meet me there;  "that is," she added, "if you can spare  the time, lknow you officers have  so much to do now that this) awful  war is on."  I said that a hundred wars' would  not prevent me from seeing her.   "I  can ask the sJtaff-sergeant to let   that  cs, I can    excuse    myself from  mess,"  I 'hastily added.  "Oh!" she said, "I have never seen  you in uniform yet, and I should so  like to see you. Will you wear your  regimentals next Wednesday?"  "Ah !���������yes," I answered. "Of course  if you wish it."  1 went back to Bingley, not knowing what the. dickens to do ! I was'  not allowed to wear umiform, and if  she knew anything about military  matters she would see that none of  the soldiers that we were bound to  meet saluted me. I was determined not lo give her up without a struggle, so I decided that at all risks I  must see her on the following Wednesday.  The first thing to do was to borrow some uniform. Fortunately, I  knew a sergeant in the Army Pay  Corps, and, that uniform not being a  common one, I asked him if he would  lend it to mc, tailing, him that 'I required the things for some private  theatricals. He lent them to me, and  on the Wednesday I took them round  to my lodgings and asked my landlady to remove the three stripes  from the arm of the tunic.  1 had arranged to meet Miss Myers  at three o'clock, so after having my  dinner I went back to the office for  an hour. Suddenly a brilliant idea  occurred to me. At the depot there  were dozens of recruits who would  do anything for a few coppers; why  not get two or three; of them to wait  at a corner and salute me as we passed? I went across to the canteen and  picked out three raw recruits, and  asked them i������ thoy would like to earn  a bob. They:were only too glad of  the opportunity, and Igave them instructions to wait outside a certain  public-house, and when myself and a  young lady appeared to.salute me as  though I were an officer. They  winked, and, putting the shilling in  their pockets, gave the characteristic  answer, "Not  'arf."  Haying everything arranged I went  back to my lodgings and got into the  uniform���������it fitted me like a glove���������  and I was quite proud of my military  appearance.  Punctually at three o'clock I was  at the station waiting for Miss Myers.  About three minutes after that time  her train arrived and she stepped  out, and her face quite lighted up  when she  saw me.  "Oh! you look over so nice in uniform���������perfectly sweet," she exclaimed; "but where is your sword! I always thought that officers wore  swords!"  "Oh!���������er���������no--yes; it has gone to be  sharpened, on account of the war,  you know," I answered, in confusion.  Things went fairly smoothly after  this until .we approached the corner  whore I had told the recruits to wait.  They were there, sure enough, but  thoy were waiting with such looks of  expectancy that I felt sure Miss  Myers would see that it wasa"plant."  "Whatever is tho matter with those  soldiers at the corner?" asked Miss  Myers.  "Oh!" i replied, "they are only recruits, and are tremendously frightened when they see an officer. Some  of Lhera have been put in the guardroom for not saluting, and that makes  them very  careful,  you  know."  We reached the corner where the  recruits were standing, and they  stood to attention and saluted. I returned the salute in a casual, offhand manner, as though it was the  most common thing in the world for  me to be saluted.  "How nice it must be to have so  much respect shown you," said Miss  Myers.  "One gets sick of 30 much of it,"  I replied. "It is a beastly nuisance  to keep constantly touching one's  helmet to every soldier one meets."  "Do you know, Mr. Bates, I have  never noticed the soldiers salute  you when we have been out before?"  "No; that's because I was in ordinary clothing, and not having been  Surpasses all others, because of its high quality���������a quality that never varies.   Try it ono������^  and we know that you will then recommend it to all your frioad*.  Load Packages   26,30,40, 50 and 60 Oonte  long at the depot, thoy do not yet  know me without my uniform."  . I was simply perspiring with apprehension. Whatever question  would she ask next? What I did see  when we turned the corner made me  ten times worse, for therei stood tho  sergeant who' had lent me the uniform, the man whom I had told that  I required jthem for some theatricals. Before I had time to make  some ' excuse for turning back he  caught sight of me. He stood still  for a moment in astonishment, and  then pointed over his shoulder to  tho public-house, as much as to say,  "Come and have one." I had tho  presence of mind to touch my forehead as though he had saluted, and  we passed  on.  For an hour we were shopping, and  then I suggested that we should  walk to the next station on the line,  a distance of about four miles, and  that she should take tho train from  thore. She was delighted with the  proposal, and .we accordingly started. Some "arrow of outrageous fortune'- semeed to have made me its  mark that day, for scarcely had we  started before I saw coming down the  road one of those wretcbedi recruits,  in a pitiful state of intoxication.  The shilling that I had given him  had been responsible for this. I prayed that he might not recognize me,  but he did. and bawled across the  road:���������  "I say, guv'nor���������you with the sergeant's clothes on���������is it all right for  another bob, for another touch of  the-���������" '���������.;������������������.  I hurried on, completely crushed by  this latest exposure. I know that  Miss Myers asked me something about  what he meant, and I made some sort  of reply about "taking mei for someone else," and.'I should "put him in  the .guard-room in the morning."  I could not go on like this; I was  sure to be found out, so I determined to do a very bold thing, to tell  her everything, who I really was,  and then  to, proposo to her.  We walked along for some time in  silence. I was terribly embarrassed,  and even Miss Myers seemed to be  nervous and apprehensive. I wondered if she would be; very angry at  my deceit. . I saw  the vision  of ������2,-  000 a year disappearing before my  eyes, then I thought that, if she really cared for me, she! would not mind  ray position.  Suddenly I plucked up courage and  commenced, "Miss Myers, I have  something very serious to say to  you, and really���������I���������don't know where  to begin."  "Oh! Mr. Bates,    I���������I am sorry 1���������  1 really did not intend to���������to���������I can  see that  you know���������-"  She here actually began to cry as  though it was her that was to blame.  I did my best to console her, and when  she was somewhat calm I began  again:���������  "I have deceived you, Miss Myers,  by telling you that I am an officer.  I am merely ,a civilian clerk earning about ������75 a year. Let my lovo  for you be the excuse for my conduct. Yes, I,love you���������and���������I am  sure we could bo very happy together; and���������er���������I want you to be my wife.  Do not think that I am tempted by  any mercenary consideration, for  were you as poor as-���������"  Her head was resting on my shoulder and she did not answer. I was  encouraged, and was about to renew  my protestations of love when I felt  her shaking.. At first I thought she  was sobbing, but the next moment  I found.that it was laughter that was  causing it.  "Oh! Mr. Bates. It is so funny,  very funny indeed.   I "  "You may find it funny," I answered, "but if you only knew how���������"  "It is not that," she answered, "but  all the time I have been doing the  same thing as you. I have been deceiving you, and I am so sorry, indeed I am, but let my love be the  excuse for my������������������"  "Whatever do you mean?" I asked.  "Well," she answored, "I am not  Miss Myers at all. I am only her���������er  ���������cook. Your friend could not have  known Miss  Myers much, but lam  supposed to be very much like her,  and I thought that I should never  see you again, so when you mistook  me for Miss Myers I did' not trouble  to enlighten you. I suppose we can  cry quits, can't we?"  For several minutes I did not speak;  I was dumfounded.  But what could I do but marry her?  TAKES AN ICY DIP.  Itosten   Ooctor aud  Friend* Talcc   l'lua.  Iu Itimton Hnrlioi' Every SJnrnlu;;.  Dr. W. E. Crockett, a Boston physician, together with several friends,  all professional mem, take a dip av-  eiry morning of the year, but especially in vnintetr, in Boston Harbor.  They enjoy it immensely, and claim  that thoy oWe their really 'splendid  physical condition to thisl unique  practice. Tihey dash right into the  water among the floating ice and  sno'w and enjoy themselves fully as  much as though it ware blazing Au-  ' gust and the water lukewarm. It 1&  a peculiar fact that after the men  co'me out of the water -there is no  shivering and ahaking or chattering  of teeth tfuch a<i one sees among the  uninitiated even in the middle of  summeir.  Dr. Crockett says: that to bathe in  ice-cold wateir in open air in winter  is the best thing possible for a man's  health. After taking such a bath a  man cannot feel the cold. He comes  out of the icy water all glowing and  without a shiver. Strange to say, h������  feels warmer than he would in summer.

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY,  MAY -I,  1901.  TANGLED.  It would require the proverbial Philadelphia lawyer to find out how matters  political stand at Victoria at the present.  It   appears  Premier  Dunsmuir is disposed to subsidise a railway from the  Coast to Kootenay with a cash  bonus,  taking 4 per cent of the gross earnings of  the road to   meet   the   interest   on the  bonus and save the province from  ha  bility,   and securing control   of   rates'  charged on the road when in  operation.  It appears to us this, in substance, is all  that should be requirsed to protect public interests.   There is a section  of his  following���������composed of  llelmcken, Mo-  Phillips, Murphy and others���������Victoria  boomers���������who want the contract given  to Jim Hill, with a subsidy, and in this  they are endorsed by Smith  Curtis and  other time servers who are looking for  votes only, under tlie guise ol" competition.   Those who know both the C.P.K.  and Jini Hill know well  they are  both  in the Held for money, and neither will  cut rates lower than it,suits themselves  even at all competitive points.    As however Premier Dunsmir,   in  his scheme  proposes     to     vest    the    control     of  rates,     no    matter    what     com pan v  builds it, in the governor-in-council, to  any sensible man this is,  in public interest, fully equal to anything claimed  in   "competition."     Besides   this,   for  some years past the  people have  been  clamoring for "public   ownership" of  railways, and control of rates is the real  essence of  public ownership and competition combined.   In  reality  no one  wants the government to own  railways  in the sense that a man : might  own  a    town  lot;     but    merely���������* to    have  their operation in such  a shape that  they cannot  charge  more   than iivini>  rates, or that if they do  the  public will  get the benefit of them.    In government  control all this is provided for.    We are  glad    to see   Mr.  Green    adheres   to  the    government   in   this   particular,  as in fact it is tlie only course left open  to any representative who values the  interests  of   the  people   and   his o.wn  reputation. ���������  DISEASE  and discomfort are not-ease  and not-comfort.

When he comes in,he is saddled unceremoniously with a poll tax, a miners'  license, recording fees, charges for registering .improvements, prevented from  using timber on his claim, taxed for  crowh-granting, forced to build his own  trails, compelled to pay a revenue on  his output���������doubled a late session���������and  no government, assistance in anyway,  shape or form. The government now  proposes to borrow '$5,000,000 to lend to  ' railway sharks and boomsters, oilers to  give large slices of public lands besides,  but nothing for the claim owner or prospect holder. Would it not be in the interest of this country, if some of our  members would suggest one half of this  five millions should be lent at a reasonable rate of interest to claiin owners and  prospect owners, to develop their properties, under the instruction of competent government engineers, taking a  first lien on the properties as security  f0r repayment.

We  lepeat will nat some of our representatives, come to their rescue? The government lends money to railways for  drainage, to municipalities for different  purposes, but there is no one to suggest  loans for prospectors, on whose success  the welfare of the country mainly depends. There are plenty of properties,  we repeat, in the Slocan on which the  expenditure of a few hundred dollars  would produce a 'showing that would  leave them rich, when they are now  forced to sell to capitalists for a mere  pittance, doing themselves out of means  to which their energies and past piiva-  tions fully entitle them.

If a Liberal-Labor party is wise,'  it is also wisdom to organize a Conservative-Labor party, and when the Labor  element is thus rent in twain, and each  set at the throat of the other, it will be  an unquestioned way to. advance the  cause of labor.

CVmHSI  There is a strike on in one of Marcus  Daly's mines in the Cariboo district,  wages being reduced from $3.50 to $3.00.  The whole mining business in'British  Columbia is an unsettled afl'air because  of being in an unsatisfactory condition  through tinkering legislation, the work  of basswood politicians, whose only aim  in the House is securing votes. Men  cannot work at mining in British Columbia for $3.00 a day, living is too expensive, and safety of life and limb too  uncertain. At the same, time there are  many properties, that are too heavily  burdened with wages, government liens,  claims, &c, to be worked with profit by  the owners, and men who put money  into -mines, are just as much entitled  to legitimate returns on their invest-'  incuts as miners are to proper wages.  Both are essential to the country's prosperity; but the trouble is you cannot  get the basswood representatives of the  House to understand it. They want  revenue for the government to build  roads and trails and they want the votes  of the industrial .classes, and lhey can  see no further. What is wanted in any  new country like this is the greatest  freedom between employer and employee, the least obligations tending to  rduce wages, and the fewest restrictions  in the way of mining development. In  ten years from now there should be no  difficulty in securing what it is now  desired to obtain from the mines revenue  Let all the properties get a fair start,  and when they become dividend paying,  tax on the basis, not of output but of  dividends. It appears to us if the whole  mining legislation o'f the country waa  cancelled and new measures adopted on  these lines it would bo a Godseild to tlie  province. .

(From our Own Correspondent.)  .Victoria. April 22.���������Tomorrow the  agony will be over and the country will  receive a definite announcement from  the irovernment regarding its railway  pelicy, and the estimates will be in the  hands of the members of the legislature.  So at least ia the impression here tonight. The government is holding another caucus tonight, the: third on the  railway policy, and an attempt will be  made to hold all their supporters in line  for the bill dually agreed upon at tonight's meeting. It is said that the  party will instruct the government to  bring In a bill providing for a bonus to  a competing line to Kootenay, but that  the executive will be allowed to name  the company which will build the road.  This is not regarded as ^satisfactory by  some of the government supporters, and  if this action is decided upon it will be  as a compromise, but one which will  receive the united support of the party.  There are no new developments in the  railway situation, and the outcome of  tonight's caucus is eagerly awaited, as  the government will be forced to make  an anouncenient tomorrow.  The estimates are also promised for  tomorrow, but the budget debate will  not take place for some days yet. It is  believed that the debate will be a short  one, as the ii nances of the province are  in a very good condition, and the opposition has nothing to gain by prolonging  the discussion.  The past week has seen but little accomplished by the legislature. The  school bill was finally past last week,  and today the revenue tax bill was reported complete with amendments and  will receive its third reading tomorrow.  This law will increase the revenue tax  from $3 to $5 per annun, and was bitterly opposed by the straight opposition. It was fought paragraph by  paragraph, but to no purpose, the House  assenting to hut one ameindment offered by the .opposition, that exempting  those over sixty years of age from the  payment of the tax. The same amendment exempting clergymen was defeated  almost unanimously.  There are allsorts of rumors in circulation -regarding coining changes in the  ministry, and we are not inclined to  think tliey are unfounded in fact. What,  they will be is impossible to say, but if  they are made it is safe to say that F.  Carter Cotton will be recalled from his  elector imposed exile to the scenes of  his former greatness.  Today was the 35th day of this session  and there have been but two or three  bills of public importance passed to become law. It is claimed in some quarters that two weeks will see the djourn-  .. merit.": If this is so a great deal of work  in ust be crowded into the next few days.  However, night session, will commence  tomorrow night and will continue until  the end of t'e session.  The members of the press in attendance at this session are holdini: their  annual banquet tonight.  The people here are disgusted at the j  tactics adopted by the agents of some of'  the railway promoters. Several'of the '  up-country members have been trapped  into making; statements which have  been misconstrued, and into writing  letters and sending dispatches to constituents which have been garbled and  then given to the public through that  portion of the press in sympathy with  the promoters, and which, if allowed to  go unchallenged, will commit the members in question to a certain line of action when the railway bills come up for  consideration. This was particularly  noticeable in the case of Mr. Fulton, of  North Vale, whose dispatch to a con-  constituent was so altered as to give it  an entirely different meaning to that  which it was intended to'convey, .arid  thev published broadcast as an expression in favor of granting a charter and  bonus in favor of the V. V. & E. promoters. These agents have also been convicted of sending out false reports of  meetings, etc., held in the interest of  that company, meetings which were  worked up by paid agents, and whose  statements as those meetings have since  been refuted.'  The impression is abroad that the V.  V, & E. arei fighting for a charter to  build a railway from the Kootenay to  the coast, when as a matter of fact they  already have the charter and could be-  In addition to our made-to-order department, which  will always be kept up to the pink of perfection, we have  put in a fine assortment of all  Miners' Clothing  Gents' Furnlsliings  Our Boots and Shoes, Underclothing, and, in fact,  all supplies���������just what's wanted in the camp.

It now develops that they are  lighting for a bonus only, and curiously  enough, their supporters are the very  men who in cbmpaigns past and on the  lloor of the House have ..denounced the  practice of voting bonuses and giving  grants of land to railway corporations.  Their only argument, the only argument  on which they base their claims for the  bonus, is that this line will givecompe-  tion with the C. P. It. Careful students  of the question claim that this road will  not compete with the C. P. R., and will  remedy none of the grievances complained of, that it will but open up new  markets for the rancher and wholesalers  of Washington, without any commensurate benefit to the province. An examination of the rate cards of the different American roads will show that this  road to compete with the C. P. R. would  have to quote rates lower than those  now in existence on any of the American roads, for the freight rates of the  Canadian road are in most instances  much lower than on the lines in the  western part of the U. S. It should also  be remembered in this" connection that  the dominion government has absolute  control of rates on the Crow's Nest and  G..&.W , and in almost every instance  the rate charged by the company is  lower than that fixed by the railway  committee.

Mr.  Keane is a contractor and is one of.  tire best (mown men in..his line of  business in Toronto.  Like many other successful men,  Mr. Keane has suffered during Jiis  busy life a great deal, from Kidney  Disorders. For years he suffered  great pain. He was. forced at times to  quit his (work altogether and go to  bed. He used Dodd's Kidney Pills, and  is. well. This is what he says about  it:���������  "It gives me' great pleasure to write  in praise of Dodd's Kidney Pills, and  the good they have done me. I am  never without  them.  " I have been a great sufferer with  pains in my back in the region o'f ���������my  kidneys. I was very sick, and at times  could not attend to my work at all.  " I used several medicines, but no-thing I ever tried seemed.to help me in  the least, until a friend of mine advised me to try Dodd's Kidney Pills. I  immediately found relief and was able  to resume my work.  "I used altogether seven boxes before being completely cured. Since  then I have never been sick a day. I  have never had the slightest indication of a return of the trouble."  It is. hard to "understand how anyone will continue to suffer from Lame  Back or any other symptom of Kidney  Trouble after so many frank and full {  statements by men well known in all  walks of life, that Dodd's Kidney Pills  have cured them.  Dodd's; Kidney Pills always cure.  They never fail. They cannot fail.  Years of trial have absolutely proven  that there is no case of Kidney Complaint, Lame Back, Rheumatism/Lumbago, Sciatica, Gout,���������.Neuralgia, Bladder or Urinary Troubles, that Dodd's  Kidney  Pills   will   not  cure.  Dodd's Kidney Pills are the only medicine that ever cured Bright's Disease, Diabetes or Dropsy.  Thousands of Canadians have tried,  and proved and testified.  A GIRL'S ESSAY ON BOYS.  At a recent public school examination for girls in an English town this  composition was handed in by a girl  of 12: "The boy is not an animal,  yet they can be heard to a'considerable distance. When a boy hollers  he opens his big mouth like frogs,  but girls hold their toung til they  are spoken to, and they answer respectable, and tell just how it was.  A boy thinks himself, clever because  he can wade where the water is  deep. When the boy grows' up he is  called a husband, and he stops wading and stays out at nights, but the  grown-up girl is a widow and keeps  house."  BREAKING IT GENTLY.

It was one of the big winter sales  in an Oxford Street drapery shop two  years ago, says London Answers.   A  tiny    girl of three attracted  by  the  glitter of ooihe tinselled Eastern draperies,  had  wandered  away  from   her  mother,  who  was  busy ' at    another  counter,  and  suddenly realising that  she  was   lost,   began  sobbing  quietly  in a corner,   One ol the shopgirls, full  of pity for the mite, lifted her in her  arms, and kissed away the tears, assuring the little one that mamma was  not really   lost,   but  coming  soon   to  find her Elsie.  It appeared that at that moment,  Mr. Victor Nelson, the well-known  diplomatist, was passing through tho  shop with his sist&r, and saw the  pretty little  scene.   The girl's  SWEET PACE AND SOFT TONES  brought  back  a memory  of  his  own  dead wife.   The idea flashed through  his mind���������that girl  would  take good  care of my little girl.  Very quietly, he caused inquiries to  be made. He found that the 'girl,  whose name was Rose Easton, was  quiet, a hard worker, and spent all  her small wages on her mother, who  was delicate. The upshot was that  tho two were Quietly.married a few  months  ago.  The heir to one of the oldest English  baronies is going to marry next year,  the girl who twelve months ago was  his mother's lady's-maid*. Young K���������  had seen the girl dozens of times  but never thought twice about her  till one day in January last year he  came in early from Uiunting, and went  straight to ibis mother's boudoir. Lady  K  was sitting in a chair, and admiring a lovely sealskin jacket which  showed to the greatest advantage on  the slim shoulders of a, tall figure who  stood before tier.; '  " Wait one moment, dear," said Lady  K  to her son.   "I am  trying  the  effect of  my new  jacket  on  Bertha.  Don't you  think it  nice?'"  " Indeed I do," replied the young  man. He could hardly have believed  that*  A BECOMING GARMENT  could make so much difference to anyone. He noticed, too, for the first  timo, that Bertha's hair, now visible  without a cap was a lovely golden-  brown. Also her embarrassment had  brought a soft pink tinge to her  cheeks. In five minutes he had fallen in love with her. Of course, there  was bitter opposition on the part of  tho family; but tthe Hon John K���������-  has a will of his own, and Bertha  has been sent to a first-rate school,  where she is learning how to adorn  in future a position in the very best  society   in   England.  Another maid, the daughter of. aj  small grocer in a Worcestershire vij- j  lage, owes a great advancement to a  bull and a drover. She was.'wheeling  her mistress's youngest child in a  perambulator along- a path by the  River Severn, when suddenly a bull,  on its way to Worcester Market,broke  loose from the careless hold of the  man who was loading it, and came  rushing down upon the girl and her ,  charge. There was no chance of escape, a high iron fence, running along  the other Bide of the path. But the  girl did not even scream. Quick as  thought, she had the child out of the  perambulator, and turned the little  vehicle across the path. Then, with  the baby Ln her arms,  SHE TURNED AND RAN.  Two men in a boat on the stream  pulled into the bank, and while tho  savage animal was reducing the baby-  carriage to matchwood rescued the  girl and her charge.  One of these men, was Mr. Prank  Elwood, son of the New York banker,  of that fciame.   He waa so struck with  Trade is Confederating tlie Empire.  Britain is Canada's best customer.

Now  she is mistress of a splendid mansion  in New York's most aristocratic street  ���������Fifth Avenue.  In a Dorsetshire village, no girl  with red hair can hope to marry well.  The people consider hair of this colour as great a blemish as a squint  or clubfoot is thought 'to 'be elsewhere. Mary Fletcher had hair of  this unlucky hue, so when Mr. Vernon Harwood, asked her, at his uncle tenant's ball, why she was not  dancing, she only blushed.  "I'll find you a partner," said  the  young fellow,  and went and  fetched  Count Faleri,    an  Italian  nobleman,  who was staying at  the Court.   The  count,  who  had  artisic ���������   tendencies,  thought the- .red   hair  adorable,    and  now Mary Fletcher, daughter of    an .  English carter,   dresses in  silks t and  satins,   and   adorns   the  head   of   the  table in  a  SPACIOUS VILLA '''NEAR NAPLES.  A horrible lamp accident in a Glasgow tenement ended in the death of one  child, and in another receiving burns  so terrible that the hospital doctors  declared there was but one way of  saving her  life.  "What is that, sir ?" asked the elder sister, who stood by trembling and  sobbing.   .���������'���������������������������  "Skin-grafting," replied the doctor.  "I mean,"���������seeing the puzzled look on  her face���������"cutting pieces of live skin  off someone else, and making them  grow  on   the  burnt surfaces."  "Take it from tne, s,ir," said the  girl earnestly. She was only fourteen. .''���������;"  ��������� The doctor, uceing she was in earnest, allowed the experiment. It was  entirely successful. The pluck of the  girland her quietness won her many  friends. Money was "found to train  her as a nurse. That was fourteen  years, ago. Now she is the wife of  ono of the greatest 'Scotch specialists,  and has had the honour of being  presented  to Royalty.

There was"  nothing for it but to go homo to  Scotland, and tell her parents that  tho hardly saved money was wasted,  and that she would tarn to dressmaking, as her mother had always wished.  As' she was leaving the Academy of  .Music, an old lady, richly dressed in  furs, was sitting in a carriage outside,  accompanied  by   a girl  about  Ethel's'  age.  ,    " That  is  she,"  mother," whispered  ! the latter, as Ethel passed.  '    The old   lady called  to. her.     The  I Scotch girl, surprised,  went up.  " My dear," said the old lady, "my  ���������daughter heard jyou sing.   She was in  j the next room.   She has taken a great  ! fancy to you.   Will you come and see  us  to-morrow  at  twelve V"  Ethel went to the address given. It  was a magnificent mansiou. The old  lady engaged her as companion to her  daughter, and Ethel found that she'  %vas a member of the great Hirsch.'  household. She is a member of th'e  family now. Last year she married  Baron Hermann Hirsch, a nephew of  the great philanthropist who died last  year.  BOBBY KNEW  ALL  ABOUT, IT.
