Their names  are Martin and Maissoneuve.  LOCAL   CHIT-CHAT.  Nelson curlers arc organizing for the  winter.  Typhoid fever is still doing business,  in Nelson.  Win. Hunter & Co. will open a branch  store at Phoenix.  Rossiand is to have a public library  .and a new theatre.  Frank Wells is lying- sick in tlie hospital of pneumonia.  Rossland's output of ore last week  was upwards of 5,000 tons.  The juveniles remembered Hallowe'en  in the customary manner.  Increased school accommodation has  become an urgent necessity.  Ira Black's new hotel at Phoenix is  .almost ready for occupancy.  Sandon curlers have organized, with  M. L. Grimmett as president.  Phoenix is booming and sleeping accommodation is at a premium.  Mrs. W. P. Evans is spending a few  ���days in town, visiting Mrs. Cook.  There is daily passenger train service  to Greenwood, Sundays excepted.  The C.P.R. is figuring upon making  Nelson a divisional headquarters.  Miss M. Todd left Monday, via Nelson, to spend the winter in Manitoba.  Dr. Morrison, dentist of Nelson, is  playing a lone hand of draw* at the Newmarket.  There is not a word of truth in the  statement that the miners in the I^elson  and Ymir districts have accepted the  S3 rate. "   . '���  A very enjoyable Hallowe'en part}*  was given Tuesday evening at the Kirk-  wood home by Mr. and Mrs. Smither-  ingale toa number of theiryoung friends.  Preparations are under way for a concert to be given by the New Denver  Sunday School, for the purpose of raising funds to purchase a creditable library.  J. W. Bengough, the renowned cartoonist and elocutionist, is announced  to give one of his entertainments in the  Music Hall, Slocan. next Friday evening.  The banks report money much easier  and collections good. This is proof of  the general upward tendency of business  and augurs well for the approaching  winter and spring.  Agent Garrett has had some very  needy changes made in the C. P. R.  office at the wharf, much to the comfort  of the waiting public and the accelerating  of business in the office.  Last,  week   the,  Jackson  shipped  05  tons of ore.  The first payment on tlie Marion bond  falls 'due this week.  Work is being pushed on the Tecum p-  sey, on the North Fork.  The United Empire, Ten Mile, is applying for a crown grant.  Rambler-Cariboo stock has reached  60 figure,'.with few sellers.  The force on the Noonday is to be increased and shipments resumed.  The Bosun made a shipment of 20  tons of zinc ore to England last week.  A pack train of twenty head is taking  supplies to Camp Mansfield, Kaslo creek.  Work is being pushed ahead on the  Hartney. There is eight tons of ore on  the dump.   ���������������  S. B. Morris,a banker of Rodney,Out,,  has purchased  150,000 shares of Noon-  There are not enough of pack animals  at Slocan City to handle the business  now offering.  E.J.

The wages of the Trail smelter men  have been raised to the standard of the  Northport smelter.  Mrs. F. Brown will open fashionable  dressmaking parlors in the Bolander  block, Slocan avenue.  A show at Sandon the other evening  took in $122. The people still have  shekels in that burg,  J. M. Harris, of Sandon, leaves this  week for his Virginia home, where he  will spend the winter.  Rev. J. A. Cleland will remain in the  Slocan until December. His next location will be at Comox.  The New Denver wagon road to the  Forks has been repaired and put into  fair shape for the winter.  The C. P. R has a monopoly of the  freight business into the Boundary, and  they are handling lots of it.  There are 13 lawyers at Greenwood  and R. B. Kerr has concluded to hang  out his shingle in Phoenix.  J. & R. D. Cameron and G. Knowles,  of Sandon, arc inspecting the Boundary  with a view to finding new locations.  The Greenwood Miner is to blossom  out as a daily���a glaring* infringement  of the Nelson Daily Scab's copyright.  Aylwin, the upper townsite on Ten  Mile, is a busy little burg, owing to the  operations of W. C. E. Koch's sawmill.  The Presbyterians will give a high  ciass concert in the Bosun Hall next  Tuesday night. Sandon talent will be  present.  The receipts at the record office for the  month of October were double that, of  September. A good evidence that the  spell is broken.  Work on the Balfour extension of the  C P.R. will be commenced within 30  days, and the work will be done by local contractors.  Peter Genelle  has  reported to  the  provincial police that two of the work-  . men at his West  Robson sawmill have  An evidence of the rapid growth of  Nelson may be judged from the fact  that a carload of plate glass, for shop  windoAvs, arrived there this week,being  almost all contracted for.  The fire alarm was sounded Monday  night for a chimney blaze in the Smitheringale cottage, Sixth street. No damage was done, and the alarm only served j Kaslo creek ha:  to demonstrate how quickly a force of | Black Fox mine  fire fighters can be called out and lined  up for business.  The concert to be given next Tuesday  evening by the ladies of the Presbyterian  church promises to be highly successful.  Some assistance is being given by Sandon talent and as the local talent is well  represented and an abundance of refreshments will be served a good time is  assured.  The funds appropriated by the government for the repair of the wagon  road has been expended and the road is  again in good condition. It is very apparent, however, that it will require the  expenditure of much more to put the  road in anything like a permanent good  condition.  Harry Strickland, manager of the local  brapch of Bourne Bros., reports business  much improved. Several carloads of  supplies for the winter trade have been  received, and it is the intention of the  firm to make this the. supply centre for  the surrounding camps. As an evidence  of this awakening their ad "in this issue  will suffice.  J, C. Gwillim was in Slocan City this  week on his Avay to Ottawa from the  Atlin country, where he had charge of  the Dominion government's geological  work during the summer Mr. Gwillim  says that the indications in Atlin are  favorable to quartz mining, but as yet  little attention has been given to anything save placer and hydraulic mining.  Tonight the local lodge Knights of Pythias will hold their third annual ball in  their hall, and every preparation lias  been made for a huge time. A large  crowd is expected, and it promises to be  even more successful than former affairs.  Dancing will be held in Clever's hall,  commencing sharp at 9p.m., while the  supper will be given at the Newmarket  hotel.  Output, of   tlie !..<��� Koi.  day stock  Two inches ot clean ore is showing  in the,breast of the new workings on  ihe Hartney.  Considerable, prospecting has been  done this season on Wilson creek, with  the. usual success.  The cross-cut tunnel on the Rubv has  been driven 55 feet. Four men are employed on the property.  A. J. Marks is inspecting the California this week. Recent developments  are proving very satisfactory.  W. W. Warner lias take a contract for  400 feet.of tunnel and 200 feet of upraise  to be driven on the Madison.  New hunkhouses and offices are to be  erected'at. the Bosun, and next summer  a residence for the manager.  The wagon road up   the south fork of  been  completed  to the  ind a trail is being built  to connect with the Excelsior trail.  Work will be resumed next week on  the Sarah Jane, one of the claims of the  Neglected group, close to New Denver.  Tom Tobin and partners are meeting  ivith success through their work on the  Rainbow, near Slocan City. The pay-  streak in the granite is six inches in  width.  Builuiiigs are being erected at the  Hartney suitable for winter quarters.  The force has been increased and operations are to lie conducted on a more  extensive scale.  Before all of the properties in the dry  ore belt of the Slocan can be worked  profitably, mills will have to be erected.  The introduction of machinery means  much to prospect owners around Slocan  City.  A good trail has been built to the Ca-  pella group, Goat mountain, and winter  quarters are being erected. Pete's pack  train took up the camp utensils Wednesday morning. Work will be pushed on  the property all winter.  A cross-cut tunnel is being driven on  the Mollie Hughes to tap the ledge some  distance below the workings driven on  the lead. In the upper workings ore is  showing all the distance of the tunnel,  something like 100 feet.  A Montreal broker offered to bet $1000  the other day that the Payne would be a  regular shipper insida a month. If the  Payne can ship ore enough to pay $100,-  000 monthly dividends, us was stated at  the recent director's meeting, it is difficult to discover a reason for the delay in  operations even this long.  J. M.Williams is expected back on  Tuesday from London, Eng , when a  large force of men will be put to work  on the Chapleau. Ike Lougheed, who  secured the contract for building the  new cabins, has eight men employed at  the job. Two cabins, 72 feet long, are  being erected, besides roothouses and  other outbuildings.'  Bruce White, and other prominent  mining men, have taken an option on  the Iron King group of claims, situated  about ten miles up Evans creek. The  ledge is a very large one, there being  in the neig'hborhood of 150 feet of  quartz, with a heavy iron capping.  Some good assays have been had from  this ledge, and the probabilities are  that this new region will he opened up  now.  The lessees of the Two Friends group  have crosscut the Black Prince lead on  the Two Friends ground, and about  200 feet west of the workings on the  Black Prince. The crosscut is 158 feet  long, and where the ledge was cut the  lead had narrowed to six or sevtm  inches. A drift is now being driven to  the west on the vein, and in six feet it  widened to 20 inches. The Black Prince  lead runs through the Two Friends  property about 200 feet south of the  original Two Friends lead and parallel  to it.  The third  annual  ball .given by the  Oddfellows, last Friday night, in Schon-  berg*'s hall, was again a great success,  in spite of the bad weather, which kept  many from outside points away.    The  supper was --upplied by V. C. Rackliff,  and it was beyond  praise.    The music  was furnished by Mrs.  W. J. Adcock,  Neil   McMillan    and   Norman   Arnot  Forty-five couples were   present   and  dancing was kept up with great enthusiasm  until  4 a.m., every number on  the programme being thoroughly enjoyed.    It is gratifying to  know also  that the committee has a  nice surplu.-.  on hand after paying all expenses.  v^wj&sm&'&s as sb ssassass  I NEW PLACER LAW  Isassasas as as ssaas^ssssessss  WINIJKKMKKK    CAJtP.  l-'uriiiillK  ill   tin;   Itounilni-y,  Work on the Silver Thread and Sitting Bull has been suspended for the  winter.  The owners of the Swansea are sacking ore for shipment, and will continue  general development.  The owners of the townsite of Canterbury, situated at the head of Windermere lake, are contemplating the erection of a 85,000 hotel.  A French outfit from West Kootenay  is taking in supplies to a claim belonging to them on Toby creek, and purpose continuing* the work during the  winter months.  The town of Peterboro is going ahead  fast. The townsite company is building  a $5,000 hotel, and Stark & Moore are  putting in a sawmill. Several buildings  are in course of erection.  A new discovery was recently made  en Number Two creek, below Horse  Thief creek, ^he discovery was made  by an Indian, who sold it to Mr. Foster,  of Windermere, for $800 cash. There is  four feet of solid galena on the claim.  The Paradise group, on Spring creek,  is a wonder. There is 76 feet of ore,  which will ayerage across the vein $80  in all values The ore is sand carbonates, and is easily worked. Development on the claims will continue all  winter.  Sixteen men are. now employed in the  development of the Delphine. A camp  has been   established and Avork will be  continued throughout the wint  er.  TI  ie  The output of the Le Roi for the  month of September was 8110,000. The  total shipments were 8,664 tons, and the  average value of the product was a  little less than 813 per ton. Practically  all the ledge matter is being stoped and  shipped for its full width. Almost no  hand sorting is resorted to. So cheaply  is the ore being smelted that it is  cheaper to run it through' the blasts  than to pick out the gangue.

"All work done outside of a mining  claim, with intent to work the same,  shall, if such work has direct relation,  and be in direct proximity to the claim,  be deemed, if to the satisfaction of a responsible officer, to be work done on the  claim for the purpose of this section.  "Any free miner or company of free  miners holding adjoining claims, not exceeding eight in number, and notwithstanding anything in the regulations to  the contrary, may work the same in  partnership under the provisions of the  regulations, upon filing a notice of their  intention with the mining recorder, and  upon obtaining a certificate from him,  for which a fee of $2 will be charged.  This certificate will entitle the holders  thereof to perform on anyone or more of  such claims all the work required to entitle him or them to a certificate of work  for each claim so held by them, if such  work shall not be done, or if such certificate shall not be so obtained and recorded in each year, the claims shall be  deemed to be abandoned.  "The holder of a claim may at his option, m lieu of the work required to be  done thereon each year, pay to the mining recorder in whose office the claim  is recorded the sum of $200 for each of  the first three years, but for the fourth  and succeeding years the sum of $400  must be paid, in lieu of work done on  the location or in commutation therewith, as provided by the regulations. A  certificate from the mining recorder that  such payment has been made shall relieve the person making it from the necessity of doing any work during the  year.  "If at the end of the year the annual  amount of work has not been performed,  nor the commutation fee paid, as above  stated, the sum of $250 shall be charged  against the claim, and the said amount  shall constitute a lien on such claim, and  no transfer or title to such claim shall be  recorded until the said amount of $250  shall have Deen paid to the mining recorder.  "If the lien is not discharged by payment at the expiration of three months  from the end of the year, the claim -��hall  revert to the Crown, and shall not be  open for relocation, and may be disposed of as the minister of the interior  may diiecl. j  "No claim forfeited, from whatever I  cause, shall he relocated, but every such  claim shall revert to the Crown, to be  disposed of as the minister of theinterior  shall direct. Any amounts received, in  lien of assessment work shall form part  of the revenue of Canada."  she exclaimed incredulusly, "do the  American 'people speak English?" "I  believe so, fairly well," the waggish  Max replied. His mother'tried to dissuade her son from the enterprise, but  soon after he wrote and told her he had  signed a contract for the tour.

THK    "LUST   OF   GOtD.  Speaking of the charges of corruption so often heard coming from Dawson, City, a writer in the Toronto Saturday Night says some very comely  things: "None but those who have  lived in a mining camp can describe  the conditions which exist there.  The cofifditiohs may not be such .as  are desired, but in many places more  contiguous than Dawson to what we  call civilization, the social and business, life has been vefv much worse.  Those who are affected % the a��'ute  lust of gold to be dug from the earth  are practically maniacs in nine cases  out of ten, and they seem to forget  every idea in ; life but the one thing  ���gold! The spending of it is also a  feature which must not be overlooked.  Those who find, imagine that they  will find more; those who have not  found the precious metal expect to  find it tomorrow. Without regard to  morals, religion, laws or anything  else, they live and die, a race separate from the rest of mankind. They  are gamblers, and the stakes are life,  health, social contacts, everything  that those of us who live at home esteem to be most valuable. The winners get great notoriety; those who  fail have their only satisfaction in  revenging themselves upon supposed  adversaries, or upon the officials who  confine their operations to legitimate  lines. Is it at all wonderful that  Daiwson City has developed so manv  kickers? If, instead of inspiring  scandals or publishing them, the  newspapers were to tell of the awful  tragedies for which no one is to blame  jexcepting the explorers and prospectors, the public heart would stand  still in amazement that men could be  found who would go through such  dangers and die such deaths, or live  such lives."  ������a^^^*?^^.^^.^^  J^jotoakfiMbd  Established  1817.

The excursion  iii itself had not seemed foolish,and Mrs.  Hillis had been one of the most enthusiastic of those preparing to celebrate the,  finishing of the new railroad from Bradley Junction'to trie fake.  But there wa3 a recruiting station 'at  Lake City. In front of the doOr of this  place a band was playing patriotic airs.  Above its roof the stars and stripes were  flying. And there Major Seely haranguedtii'e young men.  Jack Hillis was i7 and a month, but  he was tall and large and looked 20. So  he signed his name and was accepted. It  was a possibility his mother had never  imagined. Of Mrs. Hillis' four sons'  Jack was her favorite. Simon, the eldest of the family,' was in business and  married. He was already making great  gains on his merchandise because of the  state of the country and the fear for the  future. He \ViVs buying a's far as his  money and his credit could reach. He  would most assuredly riot enlist.  Evan had recently been graduated from  a medical college. While he pared his  linger nails in a', strictly -professional'  manner, he falked joftify of going into  the field as a surgeon,if Uncle'Samnee'ct-  ed him. But as a common soldier���"No  thank you."  Next there was Joe. , It was the general feeling in the family and , the'neigh-;  uorhood that Joe  was? godcl be'cause  he'j  lacked strength of character to be anything else. ' No brie knew  his deficiency  better than did his mother,    lie had always been the stupid end of the family^  Nobi-i'gh't s'a'yingB of Joe'si childKoo'd' had'  ever been  recorded."   When there  was'  extra work to be done, Joe was kept out  of school to do  it.    "What does it mat  ter?" his mOther  would say.   "Ydu are'  always at the footofybuiVchls'seS'."     .  So1 continually h'ad' Joe heard' hi'm'self1  depreciated through his childhood and  yovrtlh, nVe grew to lnkiihodd fully understanding that he was the blockhead of  the family". Sbmetli'mes Joe thought he  might like sohiet'lnrig else' tlijiri' the"  farm, but if he hinted at the idea ever so  mildly there was a general laugh, and  then Joe turned scarlet and silent.  Jack, thc'yoiuigest of the quartette of  Hons, was the darling of the ftCmily, arid,'  though the other boys' wdre creditable,  Jack would surely eclipse them whenhe  made a choice of a business or a profession for life. And now he had enlisted !  It was not to be endured any longer than  till such tiirie asJ the work of the foolish  lioy could be lit-doile. ,    .  On the evening of the day that Major  .Seely had're'leased Jack, Joe was coining  home from the ttaynor farmhouse. The  Hillis and the Kayndr farms adjoined.  Jennie Raynor met Joe in the shadow of  the hedge. Of all the girls in the neighborhood Jenny was the only one that  was ever kind to Joe. The rest, taking  the opinion of their elders for their own,  '"'snubbed Joe on every occasion. On this  evening, after talking over Jack for some  time, Jue said:  "If T should enlist, I don't believe  mother would try to get me off."  ���*0fi; yes," Jennie hesitated. She felt  that Joe spoke the truth. After a pause,  she continued, "But you won't enlist,  .b.e?"  "'I'don't know. I'd rather enlist than  be drafted. ��� Idon't like the idea of being driven out to be shot at."  "Do 3rou think the  war's going to last'  long?"  "f don't know.    If  it  does, then  I'm  t'<-'hig:." ' ^ ,  "Oh, Joe !" and Jennie's face, was very  white. i  Joe, watching her, felt his heart give a'  great leap'^rid^theii ;sta.udV stilL Could  it be.', possible? He the stupid of the  family, the blockhead of the neighbor-  hood,'and she, the -prettiest, the]brig!ht-  est ami the best girl in the world!

The manner of Joe's death was told  over his remains, arid each year as Me-  monal dav comes little children hear the  father asked.  "For the sarne reason that other men  are doing the same th'ihg. Besides, it  looks to me .that a family of five men  ought to produce one soldier."  "Yes, it does look that way," said his j story of the young soldier whose grave is  mother, in a hard, unnatural tdhe, "and I marked by a tall monument and a flag  1 don't see how any of the others could j staff, where the colors are always kept  be spared.

"It'll be awful hard for me to go if  yuii don't want me to," said'Joe'chokingly. "But, Jennie,you don't want me  to stay at home if comes my duty to go,  do you?"  ���'Oh, no, Joe; I couldn't love a coward."  "Jennie���"  She lifted her eyes. Joe's face was  very near her own. The twilight was  deepening. Their lips met, and each felt  that this was their betrothal.  And so it came 10 pass that within six  months from the time of the chance  meeting in the shadow of the hedge, Joe  Hillis came home from Bradley looking  very thoughtful. Alter supper he remarked:  ���'I enlisted today, and I'm going into  camVp the first of the week."  ������You've enlisted!" Jack exclaimed.  "What sort, of rdt are you giving us?

His  elder bro-  tliprs found it to be a continual joke that  Joe had gone to be a sdldier,but declared  that it \vas not a bad idea.    Some of the  family ought to  go.    From  general appearances the war was likely to last for  sd'me time. :  There were letters, dutiful and kindly,  from, Joe to his  father and mother.    To  his brothers , he sent   messages   which  were  received. with   broad   smiles   and  such exclamations as "Who'd 'a' believed,^?" "Joe a soldier!" "Think of Joe  being so far from home!"  After a time he . mentioned skirmishes  and battles  he had   been   in.    Once he  was wounded and wrote from a hospital.  Misname was in  the  newspaper lists.  After seeing his  name in  print, Joe's  family Knew' that he  was  no  longer a  private.    He was mentioned as Lieutenant Joseph Hillis.    There   was a general  pause in  the family  conversation.    Dr.  Hill it*; was the first One to speak.  "Well, who'd V believed it of Joe?"  Th'e mother said, "Since' he  was the  only one that could   be spared, I'm gla.d  he's doing so well." And,the father w6;n-*  dered for a moment.    No One". had said'  that Joe was doing  well ot his wounds.  Then it dawned upon   him  that his wife  meant  their son  was  doing  well to be  promoted.   Shortly Joe was back again  to camp  and  field  life,   and   soon after  'ciuiifi'news of the  battle of the Wilderness"���-news' in   the  public  way, but no  letter from Joe.     , .

It was a Sunday afternoon, arid all the  Hillis family were at tlie farm. The air  was warm enough to feel like spririgiand  cool enough to make a fire in the old  fireplace pleasant enough, while the outside doors'stbod open.  There was a step on the porch. Mr-  Hillis rose and met at the doOr a man in  soldier blue. His face was pale and thin  and his right arm was in a sling.  "You don't know me?" he said smiling; a'nd then Mi*.
