 ������/f^ ^^^^*  VOL. 5.���������NO.. 13.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  |THELOCAL gUDQETJ  The'melancholy days are coming.  The Provincial Normal.school opens  atVaucouver on the 7th of October.  An Icelander at the American Boy cut  hiu foot while at work yesterday in the  tunnel. '  "VYm-. Walmsley, after spending a few  days here, returned to Nelson on  Wednesday.  ' E'. V. Bodwell is likely to be the anti-  Martin candidate in Victoria for J. H.'  Turner's seat-vacated.  Tho regular, annual exodus to the  Spokane Fair took place this week.  Probably 50 Saridonites, all told, went  over. "  ���������  Emma Goldman, an anarchist leader,  is inthe toils at Chicago charged with  conspiracy to assassinate President Mc-  Kinley. "  The police of Montreal have a letter  saying an anarchist plat to murder the  Duke of .York has been discovered.  Doubtless, the next one will be to carry  oil'Joe Martin.  "The  bazaar  in  aid   of  St. Joseph's  church lias been postponed from Oct.  ��������� 5th to Oct. 16th.   Active preparations  in connection arenow going on, and the  affair promises to be a grand success. ���������  J. A. McVichie was hurt' at the Ivanhoe boarding house Wednesday evening. He walked out in the dark, and  fell a distance of ten feet, receiving considerable, though not serious, internal  injuries.  .Smith Curtis and Ralph Smith are  hard at it organising a Liberal-Labor  party. Then there must of course be a  Conservative-Labor party. Adding to  ' these Grit and Tory, Martin and anti-  Martin parties, and the country will be  well blest.  - Jas. Talty, a miner'at the Reco, was  considerably injured on Saturday, and  is now in the hospital;; After loading a  hole and touching the fuse he went back  for his candlestick, and was caught before lie'could'get away again.  Neii Mclnnes, ex-Chief of police, left  the city on Wednesday for an extended  eastern trip. Whether or, not he will  return,;will altogether depend on what  he sees while away. He left $2.50 in the  treasury when he drew his salary..  From Sept. 23rd to 27th the Canadian  Pacific railway will issue tickets from  Sandon to San,Francisco and return via  Portland and Short Route at $51.50,  good till 15th Nov. for return, and good  to stop over. Corresponding reductions  from all.Kootenay points. Full particulars from,local agents.  "By a convention between Great Britain and the United States, the following crimes will, be made extraditable  between both countries: Obtaining  money, valuable securities or other  property bv false pretences; wilful and  unlawful destruction or obstruction of  railroads which endangers human life;  procuring abortion. The above appears  in the last Official Gazette.  In the case of McMillan vs. Sandi-  Iands, Crawford, and Peck & Company,  an order has. been made giving the  plaintiff liberty to amend his statement  ,of claim during vacation. This is a suit  growing out of the assignment of Crawford.& McMillan, who formerly carried  on business in the city of Sandon. E.  M. Sandilands was the assignee for the  estate, but the plaintiff is not satisfied  with the manner in which the estate  was wound up. He.claims the assignee  wasted it, and for this reason he is  suing for $5000 damages ���������Tribune.  E. A. Brown took..Tuesday's train for  a visit to Spokane.  J. A. Whittier and Mrs. Whittier  were in Nelson this week.  We will soon see the Tribune and the  Silvertonian knifing one another.  Thos. Tronarey has gone over to New  Denver to work in the Bosun mine.  Ex-Mayor Pitts is going to spend the  winter months in the Similkameen  valley.  The descent of new snow down the  hills reminds one that the last rose of  summer is fast passing away.  Towns, the English oarsman, easily  defeated Gaudaur at Rat Portage on  Saturday, and is now champion of the  world.  W. de R. Rose is' back again at the  Reco mine, having sent his wife and  family from New Denver, where they  live to the American west coast on a  visit.  P. A. Cameron, while chopping wood  at the Star mine on Thursday afternoon  cut three toes on the right foot with the  axe, and was taken to the hospital for  treatment.  John Houston went tochurch a couple  Sundays ago, strange to say, and as the  choir'struck up "Strike the Lyre" he  dodged as if a cannon ball had been  thrown at his head.  . Mrs. Hasketh and her two sons left  on Tuesday for Vancouver, where they  will reside in future. Mrs.' E. George  and Miss Alice Moiiatt, of Three Forks,  accompanied her to the coast.  A Sandon despatch says: .The municipal deadlock continues, several of  the aldermen being in danger of disqualification, and the town being temporarily insolvent. .All now points, to  a .dissolution of a clearly incapable  municipal organisation, which seriously  discredits the town of Sandon. Mayor  Lovatt seemingly does not know what  is best to do.���������B. C. Trade Budget.  Miss Dilly went to Spokane yesterday  for a short visit.  Shady Giegerich returned on Tuesday  from a jaunt to Kaslo and other points.  . Dr. Milloy, of Rossiand, dentist,-will  be here to-day to practise his profession.  James J.God tray', bound for Seattle,  left on Tuesday by the K. &. S. for that  point.  The C.P.R.trestle at Nakusp has been  repaired, and now the traffic is going on  as usual.  John Cameron left first of the week  on a trip to his old home at Edmonton.  He will be away for two weeks.-  Sid Norman and wife were arrivals to  the city this week. Mr. Norman is here  looking after his mining interests.  For bona fide students, IS years and  under, the Canadian Pacific railway will  issue tickets from Sandon to Toronto at  $32.20, and to Montreal at $35.00. Tickets on sale every day till Sept. 20. Full  particulars from H, W. Harbor, agent.  Mr. Monkhouse, who had his leg  broken a week ago at the Ivanhoe, is  recovering slowly. Joe Murphy is cured  of the typhoid fever and will leave the  hospital in a few days. John MoLach-  lan is recovering from a stomach  trouble. John Talby and Joe Blanche,  from the Reco, who met with injuries,  are now on the road to recovery. Alex.  Forest, who is down with perisplenitis,  is improving every day. Pat Conway  is undergoing treatment ior a sore eye.  Ashnola,. a Similkameen Centre  Some evil-disposed person wrote to.  Spokane the other day, representing  that Mr. Warner had thrown up his  lease on the. Wonderful, and shut  down. Such a story was, of course, intended to injure the property and Mr.  Warner's connection with it, for a purpose*. This is a poor wa3r to build up a  town, and the regret is that Sandon has  too many such men, ready at all times  to turn down anything and everything  ���������that is not bringing grist to their  own mill.  Houston considers it very inconsistent on the part of Bernard McDonald,  who was once a member of the miners'  nnions, to become averse to the way  they are conducted now. It would also  be inconsistent from Huston's standpoint, for the man adicted to liquor  drinking, smoking and such habits to  reform and become a temparance  lecturer; but still it is done. May it  not be possible that McDonald, while  a member of those unions, learned their  ways that are injurious to the country  and require reforming. McDonald is  not opposed to unions as such, but to  the way they are conducted.  It was a Polish anarchist, with an  unpronounceable name, hailing from  Detroit, who shot President McKmley,  as announced in our last issue. Since  then a number of them have been  arrested in Chicago, Buffalo and other  places, who are known to have been  more or lees in the plot. These people  are now in numbers in almost every  country on the face, of the globe, and  their, policy is to murder all in  authority, who do not legislate to  please them. It becomes the duty of  all law abiding citizens to do what they  can to bring all such elements to justice  or manv valuable lives will be sacrificed.  Ashnola is the nf^ie of the new town-  site, which is owned bv the Similkameen  Valley Coal Co., and is situated at the  company's mines. Half a  dollars will be spent-in improvements  during the coming year. It is the intention to have a waterworks system  put in in the spring. Over $100,000 of  machinery will be installed in the coal  mines. The company will' erect this  fall their offices and other buildings,  b des a number of residences and  cottages. It is understood that a $25,-  000 hotel, a sawmill and a brewery will  be the first placea of business on the  ground. A number of business blocks  will go up in the spring, and some of  the Sandon citizens will. start up in  busines there.. A force of miners will  likely commence work by November 1st  on development on the coal indications.  Around Ashnola there is a good mining  and farming country.  A return of fatal accidents published  in the Engineering and Mining Journal,  shows that the industry ot coal mining  is carried on British Columbia with a  greater regard fox*, the safety of human  life than in auy Western State of the  Union. There ia a great difference in  the percentage rate of fatal accidents  between the eastern and western portions of the continent. This may be  explained bv the rougher conditions  prevailing and larger number of mines  undergoing more or less experimental  development where regulations to preserve human life have not yet acquired  the full efficacy which experience gives.  Over a period of ten years the average  number of lives lost per thousand employed per annum was, in Colorado,  4.00; Indian Territory. 5.02; New Mexico, 7-71; Washington, S.84, and British  Columbia, 3.23. Utah we omit because  an apalling disaster last year has raised  its average out of all comparative signi-  ficatce. At the same time the British  Columbia total was highet per thousand  employed during 1900 than in any pre-  vious year 1893. We hope that this does  not indicate that the province is going  back in its splendid record in the matter of the regulation of coal mines.  Beitish Columbia is the only western  territory in which coal mining is carried  on, in which loss of life rrcords compare  favorably with those of eastern coal  mining districts. We may well be  proud of that, and it is a position from  which it is to be hoped the province will  never be obliged to recede.  The orefinder has been operating in  the hills for some time, and the general  cost of locating ledges roav be placed at  $250,'some cost $1000, and some $100.  This machine works on thesympathic  principle, depth and quality of ore have  considerable to do with the locating,  million The operator finds the general conformation of the country and topography  have nothing whatever to do- with the  existence of ledges. To use the saying,  "Mineral is where it is found," and that  is about all that^can be sa'i'd about it.  Four ledges wpre located on the Last  Chance, several on the Reciprocity and  some of them are being opened up, this  property is on Payne mountain. It also  worked out matters at the Payne and  itnow operating at the Reco-andRuth  mines.  The Government.  it would trouble the proverbial Philadelphia lawyer to tell just how the provincial government stands atthe present  moment beyond tho fact, with Martin  directing his.steps Dunsmuir is sure of  defeat when the House meets. Tho  substance of it all is the province will  have none of Joe Martin either in substance or shadow, in heat or cold, or as  a Mikado or Tycoon, and the sooner all  politicians of this province engrave this  fact in their hearts the better for all  concerned.  During the last session on account of  the defection ol Helmcken, McPhillips,  &c, the government had a bare working  majority, even with the support of  Joseph incog. With him in the front  van it is sure next session to have opposition additional of McBride, Taylor,  Green and others���������enough any way to  floor it on the first division. Joe felt  bound to do. something for Brown for  sacrificing the New Westminster post  office salary in his interest'; but Dunsmuir should never have sacrified himself and his friends to enable Joseph to j  make good his gratitude for his friend.

Always  stir catsup with a. wooden or silver  spoon. The vegetables and fruits  should be fully ripe, so-lid and free  from decay. Put the contents  through a..Colander, thou through a  sieve to make the pulp line. Simmer  rather than boil, and stir often to  prevent burning! Mix' and sift all  the condiments before adding them  to the pulp.  Seal catsup in bottles, which  should be perfectly cIcslm and free  from cracks. If thoy are .stained inside put r'ome finely chopped raw potato in them, add a little .water and  shake vigorously. Soak the corks in  boiling  wafer;   while hot  drive   them  tender, and then strain.

Simmer about six hours.  Cucumber catsup.���������Pare large, ripe  cucumbers, remove the seeds; grate  fine and measure. Place the pulp in  a colander and drain well. To e\*,ery  quart of the pulp allow a teaspoonful of cayenne pepper, one teaspoonful of sail," two tablespoonfuls o"  grated horse-radish, and a pint of  good cider vinegar. Mix together  thoroughly: do not cook; bottle and  seal.    Try this with fish and game.  PLASTER  OF PARIS.

A pretty use to put the plaster  is to  make     paper  weights of it  putting     it     either     in  a- round  square     paper  ' box,   and   while  soft  press down into the plaster either a  leaf,   or spray of leaves or a flower,  anything with large veins to make a  distinct  impression, -.and'" when     dry  and firm you can remove;   the    leaf,  leaving  a perfect     impress  of  itself.  Ten cents'  worth of the plaster  will  do much work.  The project of perpetuating the memory-of the late Dr. W. George Beers  of Montreal, "The Father of Lacrosse," was originally proposed by  Mr. W. K. McNaught at' the close of  a short sketch of Dr. Beer's career  published in the Toronto World, a  few days after .his lamented death in  December last. At the invitation of  the president, Mr. McNaught addressed the annual convention of the  Canadian       Lacrosse Association  which met at Toronto on Good Friday, with the result that the project  was unanimously and enthusiastically endorsed, and it was left to tho  incoming Council of the Association  to devise some plan whereby tho  clubs in its membership could give it  the financial assistance that its merits demanded.  At a recent meeting* the Council decided that the most effective,way of  doing this would- be for each tof the  clubs in the Association to play a  benefit match this fall, the net proceeds of which would be devoted to  the   "Beer's   Memorial   Fund.".  The matter was also brought before the annual convention of the National Lacrosse Association by Mr.  A. \V. Kuftcr, President of tlie Toronto Lacrosse Club, and was unanimously endorsed by that organization, and we understand that the  clubs composing if have also agreed  to play matches for the benefit of  tho fund this fall.  'In addition to this the project has  le-  for  to  ���������by  or  of  Montreal  on   that  memorable  occasion.  Not only did Br. Beers found the  game of lacrosse, personally establishing clubs in many of the cities of  Ontario ,and Quebec, but he conducted two lacrosse tours through Great  Britain and transplanted the game  there. Tlie second of these tours (in  3S83) was also intended to further,  emigration to Canada, and during its  inception and progress the team and  their friends distributed throughout  Great Britain 800,000 pamphlets and  500,000 illustrated, books about Canada and its resources, a book the  value of which to this' country it  .would be difficult to estimate.  I Jr. Beers was a staunch Britisher  and an ardent Imperialist, and when-.  ever the occasion required he gave  forth no uncertain sound regarding  the duty of Canada upon National.  questions. With an intense love for  Canada, his native country, he  nevertheless believed in Canada as  an integral part of the British Empire. His speech at the annual meeting of tlie American Dental Association hold at Syracuse sonic years ago  in which he championed -Canada  against the United States, was a  masterpiece in its way, and showed  the calibre of the man and his utter  fearlessness when he believed himself  to be in the right. This speech was  published in Canadian papers' from  Halifax to Vancouver, and was everywhere commented on as one of the  ablest and most patriotic addresses  ever delivered by any Canadian. The  lives of such men as Dr. Beers are a  priceless heritage to the people of  any country, and the perpetuation of  their achievements in some public .  and enduring form will undoubtedly  act as an incentive to generations  yet to come, to emulate their example.

A.similar personal canvass of Toronto has also been undertaken under the direction of Mr. MciVaught,  so that it now looks as though the  scheme will be. brought to a successful  issue.  The" proposed, memorial will be  erected in the cilv of Montreal at. a  cost of from 5.10,000 to 512.000, the  construction and design of which will  largely depend upon the liberality of  the subscriptions.

GHOST.  The Duke of Cornwall and York is  sure to like his new home, which'.has  been purchased for him while on His  Colonial lour���������Houghton Hall, in  Norfolk, England. It is from twelve  to fifteen miles from Sandringham,  md those who like ghost stories will  be interested to learn that there is a  Houghton" ghost, with a we'll es-  liblished reputation. The. ghost is  stated to be the spirit of Lady Dorothy Walpole, who was the wife of  Viscount Townshend. She is supposed to appear just before a death  cither in the Walpole or Townshend  'family, either at Houghton, where  j she was born, or at Raynham, the  home of her husband. The late Lady  1 Anno Sherson used to relate that  'many years ago she was at Rayn-  nin on the occasion of a ball. She,  herself, as well as. many other guests,  were surprised to see a small lady,  diessed in an antique costume, passing through the .throng without ap-  pircntry knowing anybody. On the  following morning the news came of  the unexpected death of Lord George  Townshend, which had occurred during the previous nightf The Houghton ghost is, however, hardly likely  to make the Duke and Duchess of  Cornwall and York feel vory uncomfortable.  after the  that  hap-  ' .

Mrs.     Henry  Parsons,   a  respected  resident  of  Exeter.

To a. reporter of the Advocate she gave the following story in  the hope that  other  sufferers  might  benefit     from   her   experience:���������"For  many    months   my  health   was   in  a  bad    stale,     my    constitution  being  greatly run  down.       I was troubled  with   continual   headaches,   my  appetite was poor and  the  least exertion  greatly faligir-ed  me.     t  consulted  a  physician  but  his   treatment did  not  appear to benefit me and  I gradually  'became worse, so that J could hardly  attend  to  my  housolioild. duties..'     I  then  tried  several     advertised  remedies but without, result, and I began,  to regard-'my condition'as  hopeless.  ���������A neigltbor called lo see nie one day  and   urged me  to   try  Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills.    ���������   Having tried so  many  medicines without receiving benefit.

It is not uncommon for wealthy  employers to make lustimenlury bequests in favor of their employes,  but cases where the i osilioiis are, reversed arc very rare indeed. Nevertheless we have come across a few  cases of servants bequeathing considerable sums of money to employers, in one or two cases under particularly interesting circumstances.  Twenty-three thousand francs was  the amount in hard-earned cash bequeathed by a clerk to an eminent  but unlucky French advocate. There  was no,, desire to propitiate a shallow .conscience in the motive of this  bequest, only a real affection in the  clerk for his master, an affection almost like that of father for son.  To make this little fortune of. approximately, S'J,750, the aged clerk  had regularly laid aside half his salary and had undertaken a great deal  of very remunerative work in his  spare, time.  The late  Duke of  Westminster once  received a  bequest  from  an old  woman who was retained in his employ  for many years in a humble position.  The   bequest   only   amounted   to   Si2r>  nnd a few pence, but the grateful "old  creature declared before she died that  the amount was what she had saved  from her wages, and she wished it to  go     to    her  employer  to   show  how  much   she   appreciated   all   the   kindness  she  had 'received  in   the   Duke's  service.       The    Duke    was    greatly  touched   by   the  simple   bequest   and  accepted     it,   but he   took  care that,  those to whom the little sum should  have fallen were not losers by the old  lady's manner of showing her regard  for him.  Perhaps the most ��������� remarkable bequest by servant to master w,as a  small estate, valued at about S120,-  000, which was bequeathed by a retired bank manager to tho principal  partner in a banking firm in-Franco,  by whom the, testator, had boon 'cm-  ployed for upwards of thirty years.'  Besides his will' the testator left a  letter addressed to the beneficiary,  explaining his reasons for making the  bequest, which he could not. declare  in the will itself without making  public a very grave secret, an event  he wished to avoid. The secret was  that while in the beneficiary's service, the .testator had invented a system of petty, peculation, which he had  practised, both as cashier and branch  manager, without being suspected by  anyone, and over so long a period  that when retirement came lie was  able to buy the little estate bequeathed and settle down' comfortably.'   .���������������������������.'  This stale of affairs was.  however,  partly due  to  the fact  that  all   the  concerns   in" which  he   had     invested  his   ill-gotten' gains jiad   turned   out.I  exceedingly well, so that at ihe time '  of making.his will  he,   found    that,]'  albeit     he  had   run -through   all   the.j  money,.- the. estate was worth a; sum j  equal  to  the aggregate of .his steal-1  ings.   and, <..tlici*efoilc.   in   bequeathing'  it, free  from  encumbrance  he 'felt  he  was doing all that could be expected  of him to undo his wrong.     In addition,    he    left an explanation of the  system by 'which' he had been'able to  rob the bank, and showed how.to detect'anyone else attempting the same  thinir.  ������������������������ ti  n 53  t<3  &-  ri  nmmm, mm m plot mim  Lead PaeliariTfiB  25, 30, 40, 53 ant!

It is high time that British Columbia  sent men to the   provincil legislature  that were in some degree equal to the  requirements of representatives.   There  are, of course, a few representative men  in the legislature; but this is all that  can   be   said.   One man lias   a  little  money, thinks he has an influence or a  string on the labor vote,   and has had a  seat for a year or two on a council board,  and being full of ambition to the neck,  thinks that is all that is required of an  able representative, and at once he is  in   the   field  as   candidate    tho  first  vacancy.   If he has a good way of making many promises to the labor element,  ami hoodwinks it well, he is pretty sure  of election.   He draws his indemnity,  makes three or four tittivating speeches  on the thread-worn    subjects   in  the  House in four years, comes back and  asks for a new lease of office.   This province has resources and peculiarities in  a marked   degree,   differing   from   all  the other provinces of Confederation,  and it requires men of marked genius,  who are capable of grappling with the  peculiarities of the country and originating legislation dealing with them to  represent  a  constituency  well.     But  such a statement of facts is only   so  much Latin to many electors. v  Take our new school law, for instance,  that is to come into force in January  next, apply it in practical use,  and in many cases it is 'worse than use-  leas. It deals with city and rural  districts, but not one word about those  that are partly both. Where, the boundaries of districts and corporations are  coterminous, the objections, are less  marked, though even in such cases in  many important' respects, the act is  lamentably lacking.  Take the case of Sandon, however.  The school district embraces a section  of country contained in a circle whose  radius  is two miles from   the  school  building.   Now the school building: is  on one side   just   ten   rods   from   the  northern   boundary  of   the city.   The  two-mile radius includes most of Cody,  the Slocan Star and Ivanhoe mills;   the  Last Chance and the Payne ore houses,  &c, and there is not a word in the  school act as   to   how all   this  outside  property is to   be  dealt With   in   the  maintenance of the city schools.   The  noodlers who drew up  the school  bill  and heard it discussed on   the   floor  of  the House though well fitted  to   make  capable representatives, could not one  of them think that many of   the  city  boundaries were much less in area than  than those of the schools within them.  The law provides that at the first of  the year the   trustees   are   to   demand  from the council tho money they require  for school purposes over the government  grant.   It is known the council has no  power to tax outside the city limits, and  there is no provision for taxing either  by council or school hoard that portion  of the district outside of the city limits.  Are the parents,of children within  the  city to contribute- to   the education of  tlie children-on   the outside?   II not,  where are the means of compelling outsiders to pay their share?   Are properties  exempt by   by-law and provincial  enactments   from   municipal   taxation  exempt from school taxes also?   There  is a score of  just such  defects in  the  A   GOOD   STORY  A certain young lady in delicate health was advised by her  doctor to take a half-teaspoon-  ful of Scott's emulsion of cod-  liver oil after dinner���������������������������once a  day���������and found herself almost  suddenly growing robust.

House at  the present time are men with foresight  and backbone enough to crystalize their  convictions into legislation, wholly  regardless of consequences. The  country is loudly clamoring-' for an  elementary municipal system for unorganized parts, by which they will  have the use of their own revenues  through proper assessment; the transfer of all personal property taxation to  the municipalities; a proper school law  that will equitably*distribute taxation;  the removal of unnecessary restrictions  on our leading industries; the opening  up of public works and encouragement  to mining to secure plenty of employment  at fair  wages  to labor,  and no  toadying  to  this ��������� class  or the other,  simply because of their fanchise.   There  might be  some    upheavals   following  enactments like these, but in a short  time their service would be apparent in  the country, the people would bless the  men who conceived them.   It does not  require much foresight to see the Duns-  mmr. government is doomed,  and all  because of that back load Joe Martin.Mr.  Dunsmuir sawr, a few months ago,   the  province wanted none of Joseph. In the  face of this he accepted office at the  suggestion   of   Joseph,' and   has   ever  since, according to his own statements,  been inspired by that bird of evil omen.  Green way,   Ins premier in Manitoba,  who knew him well, said he was a man  without heart or conscience,   and  the  people of B.C.   will not allow such a  creature  to    dictate    the     legislation  of    the     country.     Mr.     Dunsmuir  may ' be  a  business    premier   and a  well meaning man, but   with   Joseph  directing his feet, he is doomed.   During  the  last  session,-! he was kept in  offie by the votes of such men as Taylor,  Green, McBride, &c,, and of course with  Joseph his trusted friend, he can count  on these no longer.   As rules go, there  is   no way of forcing    Dunsmuir    to  resign or defeating him until the House  meets, but we are very much' suprised if  on the first division of thenextassembly  he is not forced to walk down  and out  with   the  coat  of  many  colors.   We  could     never      see ,   the       necssity  for the introduction, of  Federal   lines  into the Local House; but if there is no  other way of intercepting  such unholy  alliances as Mr. Dunsmuir seems able  to form, this introduction cannot come  a day too soon for the country's welfare.  rants for the payments of accounts.  This kind of thing is what has created  all the trouble from thefir6t. The law  distinctly says all such duties belong to  the mayor or some alderman appointed  by him to act in his absence. The  trouble with the present council is they  go according to what they' consider  most expedient instead of the expressed  declaration of the statutes. We much  question whether.the treasurer can sign  cheques under warrants completed  that way.  ZDr\ Morrison,  UDer^-tis-t.  Cor. Ward and Baker Sts., Nelson, B.C.  Alta Lodge, No. 29.  A. V. AND A.

MBBV  Paystreak: It is understood thatMr.  C. C. Cliffe intends to make an immediate demand on the city council for  $500 for school purposes. Mr. Cliffe  wants to be obnoxious to the municipal  administration. By virtue of his self-  elected position of school trustee he  hopes to be able to make trouble for  the aldermen.  Even  if Mr. Cliffe a is "self-elected"  trustee, he does not self-elected impose  bushels of egotism  and ignorance like  the above upon the public once a week.  Neither is it strange that a council, that  have for months past, to use the classic  language of  Mr.   Duffy, "bucked"  all  law and order,   and  a print, that  has  endorsed them.should find fault with the  adoption of law in 'school matters.   For  the information of   both   council  and  egotist, we may, however, say the new  law comes   into force on   the  first of  January  prox.   Under   its   provisions  Sandon will get $20 for every pupil sent  regularly to school.   This will amount  at present attendance to !fG50.   The cost  of running the school now is $1550, so to  kee-p   the    school    up   to  its   present  efficiency $900 will have to be  raised  by the city council.   The   law   further  provides, the school board will have to  make a demand for the amount at the  first of the year, and if not forthcoming,  the   trustees   will   have    to take   the  collector's roll, issue a special rate and  collect it themselves.

To assist them in  their effort, the Canadian Pacific and  Great Northern roads will carry all  samples to the fair gratis, and the  American customs will charge no duty.  With this assurance mining men and  commercial bodies in the province are  collecting a large and excellent exhibit  from the various mines. At present  exhibits are reported as being collected  at Sandon, Phoenix, Grand Forks, Midway,, Kossland, Trail, Nelson, Ymir,  Aihsworth, Kaslo, and a number of  other points. ���������   .��������� '  :: At the exposition held in Spokane  last year, the British Columbia mineral  exhibit carried away many prizes, nnd  it is the intention that the display  shall far exceed that of last year. The  same mines from which collections  were made last year have undergone  considerable development in the past  twelve months, and it has been proven  that their ores increase in value as development advances.  Although more than 400 men are  working in the hills around Sandoh.the  place is very quiet. The public; must  come to the conclusion it requires the  circulation of new capital and the travel  of prospective purchasers to give life to  a mining camp.  I'        J".

And why shouldn't you  be happy?"  "Do you think a girl can be h-hap-  py," she' sobbed, "if she "can't marry  the only man she can ever 1-1 ove?' :  The pimply face of tlie American  flushed purple.  "Love?" lie \roared. Do you dare  to say you love that lenime-look-at-  your-tongue puppy?"  "He isn't a puppy! He's clever���������  everybody says so���������and I do Jove  him!     So  there,  dad!".  Mr.     Wokes    swallowed  .wrath.  "Very well!" lie said  ;"You've had your say,  ���������now I'll have mine.

So saying, the ambitious pork merchant put on his hat and went out,  closing the door noisily.  * * *" *  On the following day Dr. Henry  Bennett made a formal call, and.asked the American, for the hand of Elsie.  "T love your daughter, Mr. -Wokes," lie said simply, "and my income is sufficient to allow of our living in comfort, -although not luxury.",  "Now, look here, my lad," said  the American, with his hands in his J  pockets -and his back to the fire  again, "['talked this over with Elsie yesterday, and 1. tell you plainly  I'm sorry, but it's quite impossible.

The .millionaire's face puckered 'a  little but he made no remark.  "If," resumed the young man,  with an effort to summon the necessary amount 6f cheek,, "you would  not consider-me too impertinent, in  ���������er���������mentioning the matter, I should  like to���������er���������study your case."  "Study my what, sir?" roared the  millionaire, with a face the color of  beetroot.  "Those'disfigurements  upon    your  countenance," said the young doctor  softly,     quite  ignoring the  wince  of  the irascible Yankee,  "are caused by  microscopic  living  organisims  colled  bacteria.

"If I ever consent," said the millionaire, grimly, "I���������well, I promise  you I  won't withdraw it."  Tlie conversation of the two men  dropped into ordinary topics.    After  Punctually at four on the following day Mr. .Silas B. Wokes was ushered into the private room of Dr.  Henry Bennett. The budding scientist was reading and smoking furiously at the same time���������a characteristic, of students. Over the table  hung an immensely powerful electric  light, around which were movable  screens of different vivid  colors.  Ih; arose with extended    hand    as  the American  approached.  Proceeding to a cabinet in a darkened corner of the room, the doctor  unlocked it with great care. Inside  were a host of small phials, gelatine  tubes, and watch cases containing  drops of fluid, all labelled and arranged with much method and care.  Selecting one of the small bottles,  he read the label carefully, then  drew part of the contents into a hypodermic syringe.  "One slight injection in the centre  of each cheek will do for to-dav, Mr,  Wokes."  The American submitted with an  ill grace to the operation. Afterwards, when the doctor went to replace the phial and syringe in the  cabinet, he, excited by curiosity,  arose and followed him.  "Funny- -little  wild-beast show  there,  doctor, I guess?"  "WeJl," said the young bacteriolo  the parasites which color the noses  of certain monkevs a delightful red."  "Ha, ha! You're joking?"  "Not at all, I assure you. Some,  though, are not so funny. You see  that tiny piece of gelatine to the  right? If you mistook it for sticking plaster, and placed it around a  wounded finger, you would .most probably be a leper in a month."  "Great Scott!" gasped the American, retreating hastily. "You might  make a mistake!"  The doctor smiled curiously.  "Our methodical  training does not  illow us to do that, Mr. Wokes. And  now, good-day, sir.    Will you call on  me again in a fortnight?"  * ��������� * #     ���������       *  "Good gracious, dad," exclaimed  Elsie, at breakfast one morning,  about a week after the American's  visit to Dr. Bennett, "what's that  blue spot on your cheek? And I do  believe������������������ Well, I never���������if there  isn't one on the other side, too!"  He stirred  his  coffee viciously  and  took up the morning paper.  "What is it, dad?" Elsie asked anxiously. "Is anything the matter?"  "it's nothing, my girl!" her father  said, in a somewhat gentler; tone,  for her evident anxiety touched him.  "It'll be all rignt in a day or two, I  guess."  ���������  But it was not. At the end of the  fortnight the spots on his face were  as large as half-crowns. His health  was perfect; but those patches���������shiny  unerasable, and intensely blue���������kept  him a prisoner in his own house.  The champion of pork-cornerers dared .not put his foot outside his own  door.  * *       .     * *  One morning, as Dr. Bennett sat in  the luxury of an after-breakfast  smoke, the American was announced,  and entered in a state of considerable  agitation.  The young specialist eyed him  keenly.  "I see you've come, Mr. Wokes,"  ho murmured.  "Come?" ' roared his patient.  "Come?    Yes;  I've come!     What de-  sacrifice her happiness and mine to a  mistaken sense of duty to you. You,  for the sake of gratifying a vulgar  ambition, would accept the poor  girl's sacrifice and ruin her 'happiness for ever, to say nothing of  mine."  "My love for her is greater than  any other passion or ambition of .  mine. I have no desire for success  in my calling,- no wish even to continue Jiving without her. What I  have done, if you choose to give  your secret to the public, will most  certainly blight my career; but for  that I don't care a fig.  "In a secret drawer of my writing-  desk is the paper dealing with the  combination of colors and focus of  the light-rays which alone can destroy the living organisms which  thrive upon your countenance. Ir  you insist upon spoiling Elsie's life  and mine, by Heaven I'll spoil  yours, and send you from middle age  to the grave a blue-faced baboon! C  can kill the organism in' six hours if  1 desire.  "Hear me out!" he continued, iuist-  !ily, as the American made a move-  j'ment. "I know well enough that  men of your type look upon love as  mere nonsense. You think that human affection should play second to  human vanity.*    You are wrong.  "I   love   Elsie,   and   can  make  her  happy.       If you do not    consent to  our  marriage.

Allan,  proprietor of the Way Freight Hotel here, made a strong statement  about the well-known remedy Dodd's  Kidney Pills. M,i*. Allan's hotel is  at 4G3 St. Janies street and en  joys considerable popularity with  railroad  men.  Some of the latter were discussing  ailments peculiar to engineers,  brakemen. firemen, conductors, and  train crews generally. It was acknowledged that the greatest difficulty a railway man has to contend  I with is Kidney Trouble. The cbn-  j tinual jarring of the train weakens  the filters of the system and various  forms  of Kidney Trouble result.,  "Every man that works in an engine cab or on any' part of a railroad train ought to use Dodd's  Kidney Pills,"  said   one man.  "Are Dodd's Kidney Pills what  they're cracked up-to be,, though ?"  put in a. second.  "Yes,   sir,"   returned   the  first  piratically,  "Dodd's Kidney Pills  what  thev're cracked   up  to  be,  I'll  leave* it to Mr. Allan."  "Gentlemen," said. Mr. Allan,  firmly believe Dodd's Kidney Pills  will do everything that is claimed  for them. Thoy are a genuine medicine. They cured me of Kidney  Trouble, 1 know that. Afy urine  was full of a kind of red brick dust  for year's. I knew it was my Kidneys, but could get nothing to stop  it.

Firm in   London    Which   Supplies  Houses and  Churches for  the World.  Ready-made houses, churches to  measure, hospitals, and barns.  Messrs. Humphreys, Limited, of  Knightsbridge, London, will supply  you with any of the above, or a  town, at a week's notice, packed for  shipment, and ready to set up in any  part of the world. The ready-made  town business is by no means a new  trade. Two hundred years . ago the  American settlers used to send to  England for country houses, and one  such mansion is now known the  world over as Mount Vernon. George  Washington, founder of the United  States, sent his ships to England,  laden with  COTTON FROM THE FIELDS,  and the ships came back to him with  good English bricks in ballast. With  these Mount   Vernon,   which is   little  less than a palace,  was  built.  But this is the age of iron, and it  is iron buildings which England  sends out now. Baroness Burdett-  Coutts once sent an iron church  seventeen thousand miles by sea as a  present to the city of Victoria, on  Vancouver Island.       The  timber  cut  down to make, room for the iron  church was worth more than the  building; and 'now the wealthy congregation of St. John's has  three times as much in lavish decoration. To-day they could afford a  stone cathedral, but prefer to keep  the old iron church, in memory of  an act of kindness clone when they  were poor. That church is but one  of thousands sent out from the Old  Country to the Colonies, to English  congregations : abroad, and to mission stations among the savages*  Every Sunday the bells ring round  the world from English-built iron  churches, where the English prayers  are said by English congregations.  They are little bits of the old home,  those iron churches. And one or  two were gifts from Queen Victoria.  There'is', one such church at Hyeres,  in the South of France, which Queen  Victoria had built and thatched with  heather, to make it feel a little  MORE HOME-LIKE.    :  The King has an iron    church    on  his  Sandringham  estate.  One of the nineteen great exhibitions housed by Messrs. Humphreys,  Limited, was a big show at Windsor.  On that occasion Mr. J. Charlton  Humphreys, managing director,,  built a royal pavilion, which her Majesty liked so much that he begged  her to  accept- it as  a gift.     It is  a  lishman's   hotel   bill   which   was  not  in  the contract.  The making of a ready-made town  begins by dipping sheet-iron into  molten zinc to prevent rust. These  zinc sheets ' are then crinkled up���������  'corrugated���������to make them strong.  The  BUILDING- IS SUPPLIED  in a few large pieces which fit together like a. Chinese puzzle, and certainly fit better than ready-made  clothes. Zinc towns cost hundreds,  where brick ones run io thousands,  and they, are built in a few months  instead of years. The whole province of Western Australia consists  of towns and mining camps built of  iron, and even where timber is plentiful tho iron building has its special uses. In the tropics white ants  will eat .their way through a wooden  house, destroying everything in it-*  but. they cannot eat iron. Not long-  ago doctors began to discover that  malarial fevers arc caused by the  bites of mosquitoes. There arc  many parts of the world where no  white men can live' through the summer, and even one night out 'of  doors means certain death from malarial fever. One of the most fatal  districts known is the Roman Cam-  pagna in Italy, and in the worst  part of it Mr. Humphreys was asked  to build a mosquito proof house. A  party of students lived through the  whole summer in that house without  a sign of illness. This discovery  may be the means of making even  West Africa���������the white man's grave���������  a safe residence for Englishmen.

Mi*. Humphreys laid a railway line and lifted the Royal pavilion, not to another part of the park,  but to Osborne. There \it>r Majesty  used the building constantly as a  private study. On the occasion of  the Czar's visit to Balmoral Mr.  Humphreys was commanded to put  up temporary iron buildings for the  Russian suite, and these the Queen  afterwards bought outright as a permanent  ANNEX TO THE CASTLE.  The buildings for the Kensington  exhibitions were provided by the (inn  and to these Mr. Humphreys added  the personal gift of a.

A sewing machine tor the skin i.s  a recent French notion. It was exhibited by Dr. Paul Michel at the  late Congress of Medicine, and is, of  course, intended for the use of surgeons. The instrument is quite  small, easily held in the hands, and  has received the Barbier Prize of  the Faculty of Medicine. In future  a surgeon need not slowly stitch the  edges of a wound. With the left  hand he keeps the two lips together,  and with the right he fastens it by  means of little clasps or "agrafas"  of nickel, having points which only  penetrate the epidermis, and are not  painful.  If it were' not for the knowledge  that Cupid does not even know the  meaning of the word "impossible"  one might listen with incredulity to  stories of Ginderellas whom he has  rescued from kitchens and placed in  palaces. Some of these stories, like  that of the romantic wooing of the  Lord of Burleigh, have passed into  history ; and many of more recent  date are vouched for by those who  actually! witnessed the transformation.  It is said that a certain beautiful  lady who wears the coveted coronet  with four strawberry leaves was in  her early days a domestic in the  house of a wealthy north-country  shipowner. Her comely fa':e, pleasant manners, and deft fingers so  won the favor of her mistress that  she was promoted to the position of  lady's-maid, and in this capacity accompanied her on yachting trips.  It was on one of these trips till at a  young and wealthy manufacturer  first saw her, and, promptly falling  a victim to her fascinations, not  the least of which was her modesty,  asked  her  to marry him.  This Jove romance was, however,  fated to be short-lived, for within a  short time her husband died, leaving her the whole of his 'immense  fortune. Still young and beautiful,  and with the added attraction of  great wealth, a few years later she  captivated a man of ancient family  and high rank, whom she met  abroad, and married him. Thus it  happens that the one V'tinie lady's-  maid is now one of the most popular and widely known of all the  ladies in the higher ranks of our  nobility. '-..-.'.  One of the most fashionable and  highly-placed ladies at the court of  the German Emperor was, Jess than  twenty years ago, .   ��������� .  . A MAID-OF-ALL-WORK  to the wife of a grocer in the outskirts "of Berlin. In the summer of  1S80 a young'officer .was driving rapidly along the Friedrich Strasse  when a child darted out from the  pavement into the road immediately  in front of the -rapidly-approaching  horse. It was impossible to pull up,  and-it seemed inevitable that the  child should be run over, when a  young girl, seeing the child's peril,  rushed to its rescue and dragged it  from under the horse's  feet.''  In doing so, however, she slipped,  and in a moment the horse and vehicle had passed over her, and she  was picked up unconscious aiid ' seriously injured. The officer conveyed her to the neighboring Catholic  hospital/where for .some weeks ; she  lay between life and death, and  where' he visited her frequently.  When she was sufficiently recovered  she was removed to his own home,  where her beauty completed the conquest 'her bravery had bc������;un, and a  year later what might have been a  tragedy culminated in a marriage.  To-day sho is one.'of the happiest  and most enviable women in the  whole   German   Empire.  A pretty story is told of the wooing ami wedding of one of the  wealthiest of England's manufacturers. Many years ago a young  weaver fell in love with a girl who  was employed in the same mill as  himself ; but before he was in a position to declare his love the girl had  left the mill und town, and had  vanished as completely from his life  as if she had never entered it.  Being both callable and ambitious  promotion came quickly to the  young weaver, ��������� and within a few  years he found'himself first ���������manager  and then a. partner in the factory  which he had entered as a "half-  timer" on a few shillings a, week.  Then it was that it occurred to him  to .find the girl'whom be had loved  and never forgotten ; and, succeeding in his quest,  HE MARRIED HER:  Since then      fortune has continued  to smile on him :   he has  become   a.  millionaire and a man of title ;  and  Lady  .   the quondam     weaver  prosperous  first wife  familv     of  rr������1T,������^Ki..liniil.^.l...li..MM.(1|.l niarn'mBtmsaM���������<  lordly pleasure-house      and  the  dis /  penser of princely charities.  ft is not many years since anotlier  lady of title died who, half a ceeti-  tury earlier, had been nurse-maid to''  the children of the man who had-  given her wealth and social rank. ���������  The husband, who was the son of an  Argyllshire cottar and had commenced life a Sir a weaver on f5s. a  week, was already a  manufacturer when his  died, leaving him with a  young children.  Lt, was at that time that an old  friend of his youth, a weaver like  himself, died, leaving his young  daughter to the care of his more  prosperous friend. The manufacturer took the girl into his home as  nurse to his youngest child. with  the result tuat he was so captivated  by her, good looks, her amiability  and cleverness, that he offer 3d to  make her his wife.  Within a fow years he was known  as one of tin; richest men north of  tho Humbcr, and received the honotf  of knighthood ; a.nd few who were  privileged to know his graceful an<������  gifted wife could have believed that  she was a weaver's daughter, whose  highest ambition seemed realized  when she became a nursemaid.  -+-  TWO  OF  A  KIND.  Patrick O'Mars, a private in the  9th Regulars, went, to the colonel of  his regiment and asked for a two  weeks' leave of absence. The colonel  was a severe disciplinarian, who did  not believe in extending too many  privileges to his 'men,' and did not  hesitate to make use of a subterfuge  in evading tiie granting of one.  Well, said the colonel, what do you  want a two weeks' furlough for?  Patrick answered, me woife is very  sick   and  the  children   are  not  well,  and if ye didn't mind, she would like,  to have me home for a few weeks to  give her a bit of assistance.  The colonel eyed him for a few  minutes and said, Patrick, I might  grant your request, but I got a letter from your wife this morning saying that she did not want you home;  that you were a nuisance, and raised  a war whenever you were there. She  hopes 1 won't let you have any more  furloughs.  That settles it; I suppose I can't  get the furlough then? said Pat.  No; I'm afraid not, Patrick. It  wouldii't,be well for me to do so under the circumstances.  It  was Patrick's  turn  now to  eye  the colonel,  as he started    for    the  door.    Stopping suddenly, he said:���������  Colonel,   can  I say something     to  yez? ���������-.;".'-  Certainly, Patrick; what is it?  You  won't get mad,   Colonel,  if I  say it?  Certainly not, Patrick; what is it?  I want to say that there are two  splendid liars in this room, and I'm  one  of  them.     I .was  never  married  in my loife.  A WARNING TO SHARPERS.  A countryman, being up in London  got into conversation with a seedy-  looking customer in a tup-room,- and  during the conversation he let drop  the remark that he would not mind  giving half a crown to see a real  London sharper.  Well, keep it dark, said the other*;  but I don't mind telling you that ������  am one.  If that's so, returned the countryman, then I suppose I'll ha' ta -giu  i.hec the 'alf crown?

Lead is climbing up a notch in the  markets.  Several stockholders from Idaho visited the Native Silver Bell this week.  The Sunset in McGuigan basin sent a  car of ore to the Trail smelter this  week.  Preparations are being made to work  the Mollie Gibson extensively this  winter.  In about two week's time the long  tunnel at the Noble Five will be completed.  It is given out that the American Boy  will shortly declare < a subtantial  dividend.  McGuigan ore shipments for August  were 450X tons, and eo far this month  122y2 tons.  The Reco-Goudenough has now a seam  of ore that will run probably 500 ounces  of silver to the ton.  Five cars of ore have been taken out  of the Washington sinee John L.  Retallack took charge of the property.'  Prof, Parks, geologist, of Spokane, is  now at the Slocan Star mine, preparing  himself to give evidence-in the Rabbit  Paw suit.  ���������Work is commenced at the Noble Five  on a new terminal and ore shed. These  will be found to be of inuch convenience  at that property.  Sid Norman went up to the St.  Keverne to see how things appear there,  He says it will be some time befor this  mine will be working again.  The Payne ia incresing its force rapidly, principally on development work.  Its electric drills, costing about $1800  each, have arrived and will shortly be  put in place.  The Slocan Star is looking now as  well as it ever did,, and as soon as the  company have made smelter arrangements, its force of men will be increased  probably 125 men or more;  The Press representatives of B. C are  to hold a meeting at the -Halcyon" Hot  Springs on the evening of Mondajr, the  30th inst., for the purpose of forming a  Press association for the province, or at  least a section of-it.  The frame work of the Rambler concentrator has just been finished, and a  number of carpenters were laid off till  another shipment of lumber arrives. It  will take two or three weeks to complete  the work on the mill. ('���������������  Alex. Smith, proprietor of the Bird  Fraction, has found some valuable ore  in a surface cut'on that property, from  which he has already shipped some  seven or eight car loads. The lead has  been traced into other properties.  The Commercial,-of Winnipeg, had a  scholarly news gatherer through here  the other day, who was so full of either  bad whiskey or ignorance, that he could  find hut one newspaper in the place.  The value of his write up may be imagined from his statement that the  Payne dividends are $800,000 to date,  when as a matter of fact they are over  $1,400,000.   .  It was on the Bloomington claim at  Cody that Mr. McKaskell met with his  Joss in the late fire. The fire entered  the tunnel, destroyed the timbering and  the tunnel caved in. It may be, how-  erer the loss ia not bo much as expected  ���������$1200. It is possible the fire did not  enter the tunnel the full length, and  that inside the workings may be found  Intact. It will take time to learn all  the facts.  The new tunnel at the Last Chance is  now in over 1800 feet. Prof. Parks,  geologist, and the operrtor of the ore  finder,.both think that it will,have to be  driven another 100 feet or so before the  ledge is struck. It is nowgenerally conceded this ledge runs through the Summit and Bird fraction claims on the  other side of the hill, owned by Alex.  Smith, but until lately it was not surmised it was from the ledge of the  Last Chance that tho ore mined on the  other side was mined.
