Another ..parrot that could talk belonged to .Mr.'Cardinal, late of the  Bosun hoarding" house. It was not a  swearing parrot, though, and afforded  great amusement for the hoys about the  mine. Last week Mr. Cardinal removed to Movie and took the parrot  with him. He carried the bird through  New Denver, and sat the cage on the  walk near Till'; Leijuk ollice while he  attended to some business elsewhere.

"HOB"    COVINGTON'S    DEATH.  Further particulars of the death of  R. M. Coving-ton last week are told by  the Drill: "Sunday morning- Tom Benton and Covington left Slocan City to  do assessment work on a claim owned  by Oscar White, ot Sandon. and arrived  at the property on the Monday, after  packing" in their supplies, ft was a  hard and exhausting- trip. On Sunday  evening" Bob felt unwell, but ate a  hearty meal before retiring. He slept  none thatau'ght, and the next day ate  little. Monday night he made no complaint, and early next morning- Benton  got up to get breakfast. Coming in to  rouse him, Benton was astounded to see  him gasping for breath. He did what  he could to relieve him, but it was no  avail, and .in a h>,w moments poor Bob's  lamp of life-went out. Benton at once  hurried to town with the news and a  number of friends "went out for tin;  body, arriving back on Wednesday  evening  full charge of the funeral arrangements.

Then the inevitable came Polly gave  a piercing screech and looked the  picture of disgust. She was hopping  mad, and said many tilings that would  not appear well in print, closing' her  argument with words that sounded like  "I'm not as green as I look," while the  dog went up the street like a whirlwind. When Mr. Cardinal returned to  the cage the parrot liad assumed her  customary cheerfulness, and went down  the street saying- something about  "Sweet showers of blessing-."  A    Pr,KASING    SUCCESS.  Dedication of  the Catholic Church,  Sil-  vorton, on Sunday.  The beautiful little church just erected in Silverton, by the Catholics of that  place and vicinity, was formally opened  and dedicated last Sunday morning.

Why should it be taken for granted  that the men who devoted their lives  to the liberation of their fellow-men  should have been hissed at in the hour  of death by the snakes of conscience,  while men who defended slavery���practiced polygamy���justified the stealing  of babes from the breasts of mothers,  and lashed the naked back of unpaid  labor, are supposed to have passed  smilingly from earth to the embraces of  the angels? Why should we think  that the brave thinkers, the investi-  'gators, the honest men, must have left  the crumbling shore of time in dread  and fear, while the instigators of the  massacre of St. Bartholomew; the inventors and users of thumb-screws, of  iron boots and racks; the burners and  tearers of human flesh; the stealers, the  whippers, and the enslavers of men;  the buyers and beaters of maidens,  mothers and babes; the founders of the  Inquisition; the makers of chains; the  builders of dungeons; the calumniators  of the living, the slanderers of the dead,  and even the murderers of Jesus Christ,  all died in the odor of sanctity, with  white hands folded upon breasts of  peace, while tha destroyers of prejudice,  the apostles of humanity, the soldiers  of liberty, the breakers of fetters, the  creators of light, died surrounded by  the fierce fiends of God?���Ingerooll.  A Strict Sabbatarian.  The strictness with which the Sabbath  is kept in Scotland is illustrated by a  story told by a devout Scottish minister.  He once stopped at a country inn in  the northern part of his native land to  pass the Sunday. The day was rainy  and close, and toward night, as he satin the little parlor of the inn,he suggested to his landlady that it would be desirable to have one, of the windows  raised so that they might have, some  fresh air in the room.  ���".Mon," said the old woman, with  stern disapproval written plainly on  her rugged face, "dinna ye ken that ye  caii hae no fresh air in this house on the  Kawbetii ?" ��� I  LKGISWTUBK    DOINGS.  Victoria, Aug. Ii.���The final sitting  of the legislature for this week was  marked by the most important announcement yet vouchsafed by the  government. Intimation was made by  the attorney general that on the 1.7th  inst. Mr. Justice Martin would be dispatched to the newly acquired Porcupine district as special commissioner to  inquire into the disputes which have  arisen incident to the transfer from the  United States to British control. His  Honor will be clothed with similar  powers to those exercised by Mr. Justice  Irving in the Atlin district last year  and the hope was expressed on both  sides of the House that the outcome of  the mission will he equally happy. His  authority will be practically absolute,  and of course more largely discretionary than is the case in the ordinary  administration of justice. Most of the  claims in the district mentioned were  staked under the provisions of the  Aiaskan law and this will further complicate the disputes ordinarily arising-  through claim  jumping.    The gorern-  Uaiili'U   (lie    ItiinK-  I'AKKOTS    THAT    CAN    TALK.  The story is told of an Idaho preacher  j who once owned a talkative parrot,  and, like most things about a preacher's  home, it could swear. To break the  bird of the habit the preacher bad  striven for months, but all his efforts  had proven of no avail. Finally he  adopted the "sure remedy" proposed by  one of his laymen. He was told to  have a tub of water ready and when he  caught the bird swearing again to take  the bird, cage and all and swing- them  around his head swiftly for a few  moments then souse the whole business  into the tub of water. This appeared  to be the pure article���just what the  preacher was looking for. He hurried  home and got the tub of water in readiness, then awaited polly's criticism.

The author  of.the bill by means' of a number of  riders has made provision to safeguard  the interests of those of Caucasian race,  on whoni otherwise the measure would  work a hardship. Very heavy penalties attend the violation of any of the  provisions of this bill. The introduction of similar measures from the Opposition side of the House has been met  by such ingenious arguments from the  occupants of the treasury benches that  curiosity is expressed to see how the  government will receive such a sugges-  "       t  tion emanating from one of their own  supporters. It is probable that the  necessity for a short session will again  be made the basis of another request  for the temporary consignment of this  vexed and troublesome question to  political limbo.  The same problem in another form  was before the House the previous day  and arose from a fair wage resolution  introduced by Mr. Helmcken. Mr. Mclnnes at one* seized the opportunity of  adding an amendment excluding  Chinese and Japs from employment in  connection with all contracts, leases or  concessions entered into by the government. The House, of course, retimed  to accept this, though the principle in a  modified form was unanimously endorsed when the main amendment  failed. The House went the length of  approving the principle in connection  with enterprises receiving aid in lands  or funds." from the provincial exchequer.  The father of this proposition was Mr.  McPhiiips, who has become a sort of a  constitutional Pooh Bah, and who probably monopolizes more time than any  other two members in the House. On  the principle that a half loaf was better  than no bread, as Mr. Brown expressed  it, the Opposition snatched a partial  victory from defeat.  The Government members are still  unmollified in the matter of appropriations, and although the estimates are  promised for Tuesday, it is doubtful if  the various claims will be reconciled by  that date. Three weeks is now set as  the limit in which the order board can  be cleared and the weary legislators  relieved of their task.

About  Birds  and  animals    do   strange  Birds and thin&* ;l,Kl an  A i        sometimes  n i ma Is victims  t, ii *  ol     misplaced confidence.    1  have  known  fenmle dogs to furnish natural food  for kittens.    A dog has been known  to drive, a- team   when   his   master  was too drunk  to  bold   the   lines.  Hens, as a. rule, are short on teeth  and brains, although   they   seldom  need   a   tonic   for   their   appetite.  They have a great passion  for  eating,   and   I  have  often   wondered  how   they  escaped   dyspepsia.    A  hen can be easily misled,   and   her  best  laid  plans often   go   astray.  They will set on duck eggs just as  quick as their own. in   which  case  it is a. wise duck that  can   tell   its  own father.    A  New   Denver  hen  once raised a. brood of  ducks,   and  when they got close  to  the  lake  every duckling took a. bath,   while  the old hen ran up   and   down the  bank, her face the picture   of  despair and her heart filled  with   conflicting emotions,   while   ever   and  anon she rent the air with a  shrill  squawk.     She   never    forgot   this  first   great   trial   of   her   maternal  career, and the next; time   she   had  an     aceouchmeiit.     although    the  brood were real chickens, she  took  them down to the  lake   and   when  they refused to jump in she shoved  them all in with her bill.  Cats are hard to kill, which is a.  fact well-known in history. A  New Denver man was once bothered with a brigade of cat's that made  his nightly life a hollow misery.  So he planned their death. Mixing up several pounds of meat' and  broken glass he put the mess in a  large pan and placed it where the  cats c;ouId easily reach it. In the  morning the pan was found licked  to a. bright finish, and the next  evening they came back for more.  The light diet agreed well with  them, none of them having experienced the slightest' pane. Cats  sometimes give si^ns of intellectual  thought that these cubs might  easily have become jack leg scribes.  Bears in many cases have shown  more   sense   than   many    men.     1  around a saloon , in Cay use City.  He was in the habit of drinking out  of the slop bucket behind the bar.  The bucket usually contained a  little beer and plenty of 'water. A  j usher one day filled it with whiskey and the cub got a jag that was  high grade, but it was the last.

The fact that banking institiiiions are proportionately  larger here than in the United States  is because our laws afford opportunities for centralization, while the people of the United States have for the  past 110 years viewed with suspicion  any move tending to centralize ���'the  money power," and have steadily  opposed any atteinp directed to that  end. Here, a bank may establish  any number of branches, while in  the United States no bank is permitted to have more than one office.  The J3ank of Commerce has taken  over the Bank of British Columbia,  not because, the. business interests of  the Dominion require it, but because  it de.ires to increase the volume of  its business and the profits ot its  shareholders.  Not, only do our laws offer facilities  for the concentration of capital to an  extent known in few. if any, other  lands, but- the configuration of the  Dominion and the sparsencss of our  population afford opportunities to use  that jower to an extent that it can  be used in no other country. In the  United States population is comparatively compact, and an attempt of the  moneyed interests to exert an undue  influence in public affairs at once  arouses the people who can take  united action to circumvent them.  But a bank magnate at Montreal or  Toronto can bring his whole tremendous power to bear at any point in  Canada, while population is so scattered and the interests of the various  provinces so diverse, that it is next  to impossible to secure united public  action against, his encroachments.  When we incorporated the Canadian Paci c Railway Company we  created a body which now dominates  the Parliament to which it owes its!  existence. Our course in connection  with r-he banks seems likely to lead  to similar results. If the banks and  railways join forces, as now seems  quite likely, we might as well throw  up our hands ���Toronto Sun.  .MT.ST    LIKK   Til 101 K    Kl.DKKS.  bung bis vest in the barn  yard; a  calf  chewed the pocket of  the 'garment  in ,'     Williams   is  .handling    Empire   to-  i-i i ��� if        .i      /a        i   '   ; bac.cos.  which was Ins gold  watch.

Mr. P. E. K. Stewart and three other  gentlemen a few days ag-o purchased  the Kenefic mine in the township of  Anglesea. Addington county. The ore  from this property is inispickle, resembling" very much that from the Deloro  mine, and there is a large well-defined  quartz vein, from which very fair assays  in gold and arsenic have been obiained.  The Cordowa Exploration Company  I are preparing" to develop their water  power on Deer River falls, lately secured  from the Gilmour Company. This will  supply power for the mine much more  cheaply than by steam. The company'  will al30 increase the number of.stamps  in their mill.

There is a much brighter outlook  at  the Malone uiiiie, says  the .Herald.    A j  ���' K   well-defined vein of inispickle has  been j  struck.    ?\Ir.   J.   W.   Lindsay   has   re-j  turned from Nova Scotia and is   takiii"'!  charge of the mill.     Mr   Lindsay is  an j  experienced mill man.  He was foreman |  at the Deloro mill last year and,   needless to say, the results at   Malotio,  have,  been a "Teat ��� deal   different   under  his  inana��"('uient.    The mill is now running  steadily ni^ht and day.    A large' force  of- hands has been added.  A meeting of the shareholders of the  Atlas Arsenic Company was held at  Deloro "last week. The company have  expended ever S:riU,0u0 during the last  year in development work, and have  one of the, most complete plants in I  Ontario, with a ten-stamp mill, compressor and everything required for the  reduction of their ores. Their output  during the month of June was S9,S(!0.  They intend to put in some of the latest  machinery at once for the reduction of  arsenic and concentrates, and expect  that the monthly output will be greatly  increased.  At Port Arthur there has been much  development in the iron district. Several American capitalists have invested  extensively, and are sinking shafts at  intervals on the properties. The Mikado mine at Rat Portage, has doubled  its capacity, and other mines are adding  to their machinery. Several gold discoveries have been made at Rat Portage within the past few weeks, and  further iron discoveries have been made  along the north shore. Thirty-two  miles of the Algonia Central railway  have been completed at the Soo.  Mr Wilson, of Kingston, who was  last week on a visit to the Sovereign  gold mine, of which he is manager,  returned home Saturday. He took with  him a gold brick weighing forty-two  ounces, valued at nearly S900, which  has been deposited at the Standard  Bank. This brick was taken from 202  tons of ore and was crushed in 196 hours.  Besides the above there are eight tons  of concentrates that have to be treated  by a different process, valued at $14.50  a ton. The true "fissure vein" has been  discovered and it is three feet six inches  wide and can be traced for over two  miles. The mill is now washing a test  run on the ore taken from this yein, the  results of which will be known in two  weeks.  Since operations were resumed about  twelve days ago in Mr. Harrison's  talc  mine, work has  been  steadily pushed  ahead.    A carload of  thirty-three  tons  of the material   has been  shipped to  Belleville and about'225 tons more have  been taken up to the G. T. R. station to  be in readiness for shipment as soon  as  boats   and   cars   are  available.    Four  men are now employed about the  mine  taking out ore. and   three  teams  draw  the stuff lo the station.   The talc  now  being taken out is clean and white and  an idea of its purity may  be  had   from  the fact that in culling what is  now  at  the  station   hardly   fifty   pounds   was  thrown out.    Over the  shaft  a  rough  hut durable building has been  erected,  and in it has been placed a strong hoist,  which   is  operated   with   an   ordinary  horsepower.    The shaft has been sunk  between HO and 10 feet and is 20  or 25  feet: wide.    This,   however,   is   not   the  full width of the vein, as   that   has   not  yet been   ascertained.    The   staff  have  commenced   work  in a drift in a northwesterly direction, and nothing bid the  pure  white  talc   is   being   taken   out.  i   l'!i''|-e is a  u're.at   ani'innl   <<i   Lfi'ev   talc  also, bill fhis in nut being worked,  as it;  j is nl'an inferior grade.

The  tenth passenger, who was sitting in  the window corner with a cap pulled  over the face, groaned, again. The  kind-hearted old gentleman snoozing  opposite unscrewed a flask of cold tea.  and passed it to his afflicced neighbor.  He drank long and eagerly.  "Do you feel betier?" asked the  giver.  "I do,"'said-he who had groaned.  "What ailed you. anyway?"  "Ailed me?"  "Yes; what made you groan so?"  "Groan !    Great Scott, man,  I was  singing!"
