The agitation begun here some  months ago, looking to the'establishment of a money order department  in connection with tlie local postojflce,  has.at length .'achieved...the-desired  end, and the institution has become a  surety. '.Postmaster Thomlirison received on Tuesday a large consignment of the necessary papers and  blanks,from Inspector -Fletcher, as  well as an official notification that  New Denver Jiad been raised to the  standard of a money order office.'  Workmen are now making the necessary improvements in the office to  accommodate the new department.  Mr: Thomlinson hopes to be in a position to commence issuing orders on or  about the 15th. In the absence of a  bank, the, money order office will  prove of great convenience to the  business men of the town and neigh-,  borhood, as well as to tlie public generally, and the office is certain to derive a handsome income.  A couplet announcement was also  receiveel from Inspector Fletcher,  wh ich will pro ve equa 11 y satisfactory.

Charles Franklin Regild is 27 years  old and an actor. Piis. wife is 70 years  old and very rich. As a Christmas  gift she gave Charles $75,000,' provided he would quit the stages He  has quit. If there were more women  like Mis. Regild life would be much  better, and bachelors would not be so  plentiful in the Slocan, or anywhere  else, as they are under the present  circumstances.

About- a enough to test the - best people on  corporal's guard working upon'it and earth,  the people of Nelson still living on  expectation. ", With its main business  ofricein the Old Country, and its affairs conducted by .men. who can afford to play a waiting game, without  pawning their diamonds, it is hardly  likely that the immediate future will  see Nelson's streets worn threadbare  by the wheels of Silver King ore  teams. It is too bad that such a great  and valuable property should lead  such an inactive life. It would have  ' been far better for the-Halls and the  people of Nelson if the King had gotten into the hands of some American  company. They would have at  least been as swift as the present concern, and the chances are that they  would, have been much swifter in  rushing the ore to market before it  would get mouldy and out of date.  Sir Joseph Trutch, president of the  Hall Mines Co., has ��500 invested in  the'company and draws a salary of  ��350 a year, and no doubt he can,  with the rest of his income, live without being in a hurry to develop Toad  Mountain's big bonanza, even if the  people  in  Nelson  have   to exist on ! ���     r~~~~  bean soup and the surrounding seen-     .���c dreenleaf, close to the Califbr-:  ���   ���*.-.     -,    . , �� nia, and a mile or so from town, is a  ery during tlie interval. property that will he heard from next  summer.'

The ledge matter between  walls is  two feet, a mixture  of galena and  carbonates. Three stringers of galena  run through   the carbonates, assays  . from which show 275 ounces in silver,  j Much higher  figures  than this have  I been obtained though.

Russell and is considered good property. Mathews is to do all the work  on the claim during the year, and  give Russell lh; per cent, of the returns from the smelter. During the  term of the lease Mathews has the  privilege of bonding* the claim for  $25,030, one-quarter of that amount  to be paid down,, and.the balance in  G, .9, and 12 months.

About' a  corporal's guard working upon' it and  the people of Nelson still living on  expectation. With its main business  office in the Old 'Country,- and its af-  fairs conducted by men who can afford to play a waiting game, without  pawning their diamonds, it is hardly  likely that the immediate future will  see Nelson's streets worn threadbare  by; the wheels of Silver King. ore  teams.- It is/too bad that such a great  ��� and valuable property should lead  such an inactive life. It would have  been far better for the.Halls and the  people of Nelson- if the King had gotten into the hands of some American  company. . Thev would have, at  least been as swift as the present con-  cern, and the chances are that they  would have been much swifter in  rushing the ore to market before it  would get mouldy and out of date.  Sir Joseph Trutch, president of the  Hall Mines Co., has ��500 invested in  the company and draws a salary of  ��350 a year, and no doubt lie can,  with the rest of his income, live without being in a hurry to develop Toad  Mountain's big bonanza, even if the  people in Nelson have to exist on  bean soup and the surrounding scenery during the interval.  Monday evening a general.row occurred between two families in town  by the name of Scott and Saunders.  The case came before D. B. Bogle, J.  P., next morning, when Saunders  was lined $5 and costs.  The recent ...death of Robert Louis  Stevenson has aroused a ney interest  in his works, and has led the Ara'O-  natit to reprint, in its issue of December 31st-, a selection from his essays.

During the  term of the lease Mathews has the  privilege of bonding the claim for  #25,OCX), one-quarter of that amount  to be paid clown,, and.the balance in  6, 9. and 12 months.

One. of the shackers was  compelled by a brace of individuals,  who waited on him at his residence,  to disgorge a few small greenbacks,  but a check ot $50 was'returned to  him, as it proved too unwieldy.  A big mining man, who looks like  a cowboy, came out of a Three Forks  restaurant the other day and said,  "Boys, I have just had the best meal  in town.'
