Bar silver almost touched the (50-
cent mark the past week in New
York. Last Friday it was 59f. on
Saturday, 59i, on Monday. 59$. on
Tuesday, 5fl$, and on Wednesday,
Sept. 30th. 594.
Silver has not reached its present
level since June, 1901.
When Byron White, James
Cronin and other Kootenay mining
men declared some time ago that
silver would reach 65 cents before
the end of the current year, scoffers
derided them and said it was most
improbable. The outlook for
silver at the moment i-- the brightest since the present rise commenced
early this year and there is every
indication that the metal will keep
above 60 for the ballance of 1903.
Discussing the metal market conditions, the New York Mining and
Engineering Journal says: The
metal markets, for most part, are
quiet, the business done having
been on a moderate scale; and with

Editor New Deliver I^KliaEi,   Silt—
Now that both* the Liberal' nnd
Conservatives as well as the Labor
Party have adopted the principh-
of the government ownership of
railways,it is evident that the question of an efficient civil service is a
matter of the very first importance.
We shall want the best men possible in the government service nnd
we can only expect to get good
men to enter by offering good pay,
fair chance of promotion and the
certainty of holding their positions
as a reward for faithful work.
History and experience teach the
danger of the civil service falling
into the hands of the politicians.
The vital question is: can we avoid
"the spoils" system?
I maintain that this is possible by
a comparatively simple law to protect government officials from the
politicians and give them an assurance of holding their jobs whilst
they do good work.
I maintain that by enacting a
law to the effect that no government official can be dischatged;
(unless the reason why he is discharged is published in the (Ja-
z tt"); great protection would be
given both to the officials and to
the politicians.
If the reavon given for the dirt-
missal of an official was a libel, the
person libeled rottld obtain redress
liy law if the reason was frivolous;
amero excuse to make room for a
political supporter or to get rid ut
an opponent; the whole transaction
would tie shown up and a Hood of
light turned on exactly where light
is needed.
It would protect the politicians,
for candidate** would feel   at   once
that they could not promisejobsaiid i midnight the train pulled into S»n
much corruption would thereby be don.    In short. It took 10 hours to
Spelter also remains strong, with
no material change. The demand
continues good, and conditions of
production are not improved. Our
Joplin report shows that zinc ores
continue to demand a high price.
Tn fact, the sales of ore in Joplin
district, gunged by price, this year
shows a considerable increase in
amount, although the actual quantity sold fell off considerably.
Silver has been fairly well maintained, in the face of a demand,
which, to say the least, is not excessive. The market is being
skillfully managed, however, and
there is no pressure to sell. An
unusual feature is that in the
month of AugUBt the imports of
silvor, in all forms, into the United
States exceeded the exports by 299,-
021. For the eight months ending
ing with August however, the excess
of exports was valued at 87,075,-
S33. This is only a little more
than one-half of the amount reported for the corresponding period
in 1902.

W.'B. Poole, resident manager;
and principal owner of the Ophir-
Lode and Oyster Criterion groups
of mines in the Ttout Lake district, recently said of the Poplar
creek gold finds:
"In my experience I have never
seen   anything to equal what has
been    already   uncovered.    From
Fish creek down to the Lardo, for
thirty miles past Poplar, there are
some one thousand and upwards, of
prospectors who   are securing gold
in   paying  quantities.    I   believe
that the celebrated   Cripple   creek
and kindred camps are going to ho
eclipsed and I stake my reputation
on the fact that the lends will   eo
down.    This     has   a-ready   been
proven at a depth of four hundred
feet on Fish ceek.   Marquis  and
Gilbert are sinking and their  lead
holds its own.    My faith is shown
by my investments.    There is   no
question about the latent wealth of
the district, almost   untouched   as
yet.    New finds are   being  made
daily.    Kelly, Kerlin,  Msignusoii.

showings and they will   be   heard

there is no exaggeration and the
best proof of it is for   doubters   to
come and see,   and I   will   show
them the   purchase   price   of   the
Lucky Jack in sight and as   much
more on top of it.    What do   you
arc open wide enough for the  ad-
mittanceof your hand lined   with
gold?   Well, I can show them   to
you and not one but many of them
and even more   wonderful   things
are to lie seen.    But I would   not

his resignation would be dated and
handed to the Lieutenant -fiovernor.
He believed it was the only sensible
way of disposing of a disloyal
member, and was quite
willing to leave his case in the
hands of the convention that nominated him.
After briefly discussing the
various planks in the platform on
which he was nominated, Mr.
Davidson referred to the good feeling existing between himself and
Mr. Hunter, and said he was satisfied to leave tlie matter in the
hands of the electors, believing
that they knew already about what
they wanted and that, whether
elected or defeated, he would still
stand loyal to the best interests of
the Slocan.
Mr. Hunter was then called upon.
His remarks were brief but decidedly characteristic of the man. He
snid he hoped no one expected a
speech from him. He said he did not_

and that he was there only through

to hold public meetings for the
people to hear what he had to say.
Referring to his nomination, he
said he had been approached on
several previous omissions to run.
hut that he had kept out of it as
long as he could. Now, when we
have suffered so much from bad
legislation, he felt that, if he could

Mr. Davidson briefly referred to his
record in the Slocan. He said the
Conservatives had claimed he was
a Conservative, and the Liberals
that he was a Liberal, but tTey
were wrong, for he had been an independent labor man ever since
lie was old enough to know anything about politics.
He was free to concede to the conservative press in this riding the
same freedom that he demanded for
himself to express his views on the
political issues of the campaign,
and he agreed with the opposition
that Mr. Hunter was a man of the

respect was also true of himself,
ami he was ready to speak of Mr.
Hunter in the highest terms as a
businessman and citizen of the
Slocan. But he felt that, should
Mr. Hunter be elected, he would
be held in line by the same political
power that now runs the government, and he could not see how we
could expect a good and stable
government could be formed out of
the old material.
He said that tho mildest term he

Chimmie Fadden on Diplomacy of Women
I'm a Frenchman by marriage, as Duchess says, but dere's one ting I'll never cop

aud sporting news is to Americans, eating
is to de French.
"Dat's de trouble wit your dinky nation," I says to Duchess. "If dey goes to
war dey gets licked; if dey digs a subway
it's a grave; if dey breeds racers dey is

de turf; if dey fights duels dey only makes
faces, all because dey is never tiuking
about de ting dey is making a bluff at, but
is tiukiug about how deir grub is to be
Mostly I can get a fall out of Duchess
by pulling a hammer on de French, but
dis time she only gives me do baby stare,
aud says, "Cheems," sho says, ''Cheems,
you have only of tlie ignorance of which
you speak. Besides dat dey is de greatest
people on eart, do French is do most bravo,
de most noble, and do only ones dat knows
how to dress. Dey did everything before
anybody else done it. Did we not go to
see M'sio.u Suddern in do American play
of 'Hamlet' last year, and did we not see
de same play by Madam Bernhardt—
'L'Aiglou'—de year before? De French
is always ahead."
"On your way, woman," .1 says. •'Hamlet was wrote for Kddie fcSiiildorn by an
Englishman, not by Olyto Fiftch.'
"De more shame to de Englishman who
stole it from M'sieu Rostand," Duchess
says. "De English never knowed how to
fight until Napoleon teached em; dey will
never know how to paint or sculptor, no
matter who tries to learn em. It is only
de tings dat France has forgot dat any
odder country does well."
"Dey has a good brand of hot air on
tap, anyway,!' I says. "But tell me, why
docs doy put garlic in a leg of mutton?"
"Because do sheep hasn't de sense to
put garlic in his own leg," she says. "But
you has do bad temper dis morning,
Cheems. Come wit me to de city, aud we
will dine at do restaurant of de husband
of faen, Julie. It will be my treat, for
Julie is de dame du comptoir, and she
charges me uott iug for dinner, so delicieux
is it for her to liave de laugwudge spoke

And dat's no dream", neider. Julie used
to be a lady's maid, and she's so tickled to
have Duchess come to de restaurant, and

never asks us for de price—and (bit's why
do dinner at Julies' is Duchess' favorite
We eats nt Jaques—dat's Julie's hubby
—between menl times, so dat dey can eat
It's den dat Duchess tells Julio to talk of
de swift set, dat we hears at our place;
aud de tings dat sho tells must bo warm
{impositions, for Julio "Don Dious!" and
lumps her eyebrows like sho was only
two jumps ahead of a fit. Do waiters
don't understand, for dey comes from u
kind of Hoboken of France where some
sort of French yiddish is spoke, and can't
cop do real Paris rrtifle dat Dutchess
spouts, Dat's a good ting, too; for when
Duchess gets to passing out do latest ex-
trays about do little lad in de brass band
set dat earrieo a wrist bug, and wears a
rose iu his thatch at uight, it wouldn't do
deso backwoods Frcndiios nogood lo hear
do whole story.
Jaques gives each of do winters a hot of
claret ror dinner; but did day one of dem
was docked his red wine and mado to
drink tea, because he'd broke so manv
dishes; nnd do jxior chap cried so much
over his hard luck dat he made de tea
Ralty.   Den he said it wasn't so bad.
But dat wasn't all I was going to tell
you; only sometimes I get wondering so
hard why all folks isn't like Americans
dat I has to sing a song about it—or have
a fit. I was saying dat to .Mr. Paul do
odder day, when we was trying to see

on her keel, "^es, Chunics," lie says, "do
American people couldn't do a wrong net
if dey tried. Dey is a generous, just, patriotic und grateful jienple; and dey will
not lie represented iu high ollice by a man
who forgets to show his gensrosity and
gratitude and justice, instead uf meanness, ingratitude, unfairness in all his
nets. At de chili, Ae odder day, 1 was
talking dis over wit general Miles, and he

dat don't, save it. Money is no good if
you don't have it, is it ? If it is only good
to spend, why take de trouble to get it?
No, Master Cheems, if you havo money
you have self-respect—de only ting dat
you can buy wit money, and at de same
time not spend de money. Dere should be
a law dat man should make all do money
ho can—and give it all to his wife. Dat's
de only way he can buy happiness."
I was a foolish fellow to come to a clinch
wit Duchess on dat propositiou; for no
matter how good a argument I put up,
Duchess gets de decision, aud do poisse;
she being referee aud stakeholder, both.
But I was going to tell you about Willy
Widdy. She's not de kind of a player
dat sits on de club house verandy waiting
for au easy mark to go around de links
wit her. If de. oue she wants won't play,
she'll be in a game if it's only a lone-'
some—dough foursomes come her way
swifter dan any odder. So when Whiskers got shy, Widdy waS as gaily-gaily as
any goil in de county. Duchess tried her
best to get Miss Faiutie to drag Whiskers
over to Widdy's cottage, ao dat he could
see wlmt a push was dere at Widdy's
lunches and teas, and dat she wasn't* sentenced to be a widdy a day longer dan she
wanted to be.   But, Whiskers ducked.
"Itis of de ngravuto!" says Duchess.
"It is dat if 'Whiskaire see Madam Harding in company wit anodder, den he is of
de sentiment urgent*. But if he will nol
ga where he see dat many men admire
her, what can one do?"
"One can guess again," I says. "Let
your betters alone, and fix it wid Housekeeper to leave Maggie* have dis evening
off, for me frien de barkeep is coming
down dis evening, and we'll take a stroll
up di' pike wit him and Maggie."
Duchess never said a ■\void in answer to
dat, find I* had a right to be leary: for
whon a woman won't talk, even when
she has a cue, it's time for a man to get
his guard up and limber his legs for a
quick side-step. Me frien comes down by
de early evening train, aud 'conchy lends
me de station wagon to fetch him; de.
folks biMng at dinner and not seeing me
make de sneak wit de wagon. When we
was in de housekeeper's room, having a
bite, and a mug of de butler's ale to wash
de cinder's out of me Men's trout, Duchess chases me off, and don it was she puts
up her job. Widdy had been giving Duchess a lot of duds, and p'ehee! if she didn't
rig Maggie up in em till she was a dead
ringer for Widdy—only dat Maggio in
one of dose new straight-up-and-down
corsets, was asking wouldn't she break
like a lamp chimney if she sat down! "Me
frien was looking like ready money, too;
for his lid and blanket would pass him nt
a hundred yards for a broker on de right
side of de market.
"Take me out of dis corset, Duchess
dear," Maggie was saying. "For de love
of heaven! take me uut before I die. I
feel like I was boarded up—like I was
boxed up for de expressman to take
away." •
"Tons etes tres charmante!" say Duchess, putting on de poor goil a wrap Widdy
used to wear. "Don't hold you skirt like
a mouse wns chasing you. Look, hold it
hold her skirt like she was going to wrap
herself up in it if dere was enough of it.
"What's doing?" I says when I sees
dese tings.
"It's a play," says Duchess.
"Who's to be played?"
"Come wit me and say notting," Duchess says, and do four of us chases out to
de road by de lane.   Den Duchess and me
goes over to do odder sido of de road, and
me frien and Maggie waltzes along by
deirsel ves, and, say, dey was so like Widdy
and some swell Johnnie, dat I'd yelled, ^
only Duchess punched mo.
It was near dark when whiskers came
out from dinner, and starts out for a stroll
to de yacht club house to thrash out de
cup races once more. As soon as he cops
Maggio and mo frien, he starts like he
starts like he was going to cress do road,
and den ho seems to tink dat wouldn't do,
and keeps on; and when ho passes them
he hists his lid; me frien hists his, and
dat sassy Bowery goil, M.uggii\ sweeps a
bow dat makes her look more like Widdy
dan de close did. Whiskers went on his
way, and de couple makes it hurry sneak
wit* us buck to de house, where Maggie
gets mil of her swell rags and into her
own close; aud den de four of us starts oil'
up de pike, Pretty soon butler runs us
down, and asks me didn't I know dat I
was due ul do house, for dere was lo lie
bridge, and me l*ing snoud man, it was
up to me to lie on call if Mr, Paul would
want a small buttle.
Say, before t gets a ring to go to de
room where de folks was, Miss I'annie
sends for me on de quid, aud she says,
"('hiatus, where is Hoilenw?"
"Walking up de road wit butler, Maggie and a tried of mini'," 1 says. "Shall
1 chase alter her, Miss Fitiinio?"
Miss Fannie tutu it while, and den she
says, "How is llyrtcnsc dressed?"
",he-t a,-' die was when she dressed yon
for dinner."
"Ami Maggie?"
"I tin roof! What kind of a drink is a i
tin roof?"
"It's ou de house," says I, aud Duchess
is wondering yet.
Dat's de foist time in me life I ever
sunk a tip on Duchess, and de best ting
about it is dat it was her graft, at dat. If
she ever finds out d-.it Widdy passed dat
green to me, to pass along to me—to de
Norfc Pole for me!
Aud Duchess earned de stake, too; for
from de looks of tings down our way,
Whiskers will soou tell mo to pack his
trunk for a wedding journey; and when
de parson has willed half of Whiskers' income to Widdy, de credit of de job will
belong as much to Duchess, as to Widdy's
Nelson Exhibition.
Among the Trail visitors to the fair
were mayor and Mrs. Schofield, D. F.
Jelly the" orchard)st, George L. Merry,
and J. H. Clay the market gardener. Mr.
Jelly and Mr. Clay captured nearly SO
prizes between them.
G. 0. Buchanan of Kaslo had a number
of exhibits of fruit of liis owu growing
and that of his neighbors. He took first
prizes for Beitenheimernud Colvert apples
and second for Pacific Coast Trailing
blackberries'. He made entries for J.
Kidell and .1. Clark, and the former took
second for Weal thy apples and the latter
second for Griivonstien tipples.
0. W. Busk of Kokanee creek and Rev.
J. Calvert of New Denver had splendid
exhibits of their work as amateur photographers. The iNTe\v Denver divine captured the red ribbon,
Edward Grizzolle, the Hoover street
(lorist, ma.de a line exhibit of potted
plants and flowers, iuehuling nearly every
variety that can he grown in this climate.
He was awarded a diploma.
One of the unique exhibits was a catch,
of trout frozen in a block of ice. Ed
Bosquet, Nelson's champion fisherman,
made the catch,,' and the freezing ..was
done iu P. Burns & Co.'s cold storage
George W. Halo & Co. exhibited do-
signs of steam, electric, and gasoline,
launches and row boats, and their friends
say they should design a yacht to capture
the America's cup.
J. H. Clay, who has a farm a short distance up the gulch from Trail, made
spleudid exhibits of vegetables, nnd captured 15 first and (i second prizes. He
also took the sweepstakes in that class.
The soil around Trail is well adapted for
vegetables and the climate is probably as
mild as in any section of Kootenay.
Thero were a number of exhibits of
wood carving done by amateurs, which
were most creditable.
Allan Lean, the photographer, exhibited
u fine collection of photographs.
There was wheat in the sheaf from
Kokanee ranch and clover five feet high.
There were half a dozen entries of sunflowers, the tallest stalk being over 1-2
feet high and the flower 14 inches in
Onslow Newliug; took first prize for
Olapp's Favorite pears, and James Tarry
exhibited Duchess d'Angeliue pears from
street. While there are more pretentious
buildings than Mr. Driscoll's cottage, no
home in Nelson has so many evidences
that the occupants are striving to make a
home in the sense that Canadians understand the word. Mr. Driscoll has a garden and orchard that has not an equal in
Nelson. He grows more and a greater
variety of fruit than «ny resident* within
the city; yet wheu he built his home in
1893 up in the Hoover Addition, as it was
then called, people said he was "awav out
of the world."

A Competitive Coal Company.
Quite recently several of the officials of
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company from
Toronto have made a visit to the company's properties at Fernie, and made optimistic reports of the outlook there. We
are pleased to hear it, as the gentlemen
should know what they are talking about*.
But some of the things that G. G. S. Lindsay, K.O., one of the directors, is credited
with saying, would have been left better
unsaid—at least from the company's point
of view. Referring to tho coke shipments,
Mr. Lindsay stated that the shipments to
the Granby smelter, among others, had
been stopped because'they wore "overstocked." Tliis was only half the truth,
us the reason the Granby shipments were
ordered discontinued for a few days was
because tho smelter 'was blown out torn*
lew days.. But: this is no large matter, if
the coal company now keeps up the supply, which it appears they will be able to
do. Iu referring to the quality of the coal
being opened up by the International Coal
& Coke Company,'however, Mr, Lindsay
made some remarks that will do him no
good. Here is what lie is reported to have
said, verbatim: "Weare glad to find the
Granby people entering the field. After
live years of work and the expenditure of
an enormous amount of money, the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Company has got coke
down to as low a figure as it can be produced at it profit, even on a* very extensive
scale. Tho Blairmore district* lias, undoubtedly, large fields of coal, some of
which havo been tested and abandoned,
and I very much doubt if there is.any
seam ai' coal in that district* that will produce good coke. I have ri'een samples of
coke made from civil taken from tlie vein
upon which the Granby people are working, and it is very high in ash. It may be
that they will, on other seams, obtain a
coal which will make good coke, but* if
they do it will be the only instance in that
district where such coal has been obtained,
and I would not be willing to believe that-
such coal exists until I see the coke."

D. F. Jelly is Trail's orehardist, and his
exhibits of fruit show that ho understands
the business. He captured a number of
prizes for tipples and pears.
W. II. Covert of Grand Forks made as
Jiue a display of fruit as will be made at
any fair in the province. It included
apples, peaches, pours, and plums. The
fruit was clean, ripe, of good size, and of
excellent flavor, tfrand Forks may be a
smelting center, but Mr. Covert has
proved that it is also in the center of a
splendid fruit district.
^Thero was an exhibit of oil from the
fumed Flalhead river oil Holds, which tire
not open to locators because of u lack of
backbone in someone.
No liner orabapplos will Ik* exhibited at
the Spokane fruit fair than were those
entered at Nelson's first fair. Tliey were
fine in size, iu color, aud in flavor.
The plums, pouches, grapes, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and primes
wore not only remarkable for the variety,
but for tho size anil quality. I
Non. H. F. (liven of Kaslo is classed as
a politician, but he is also a fruit grower.
In his absence from homo his sun "Dub"
entered fruit, and carried oil' first prize
for plums.
Fred .1. Squires, Nelson's pioinvr merchant tailor, had a display of tents and
awnings of his own manufacture. He

From the Butte Reveille.
"Going to leave town, Jack?"
"I got the. 'bine ticket' this morning,"
was the answer.   "You know what that
means."   •
This conversation, audible to the little*
crowd which had gathered at an outgoing
train at the Anaconda depot today, was
tho means of divulging to the Reveille
correspondent a remarkable state of affairs
in this city.
The very latest in Standard Oil infamy
is the "blue ticket."
Preliminary to the opening of the
Washoe works here, the Standard Oil
blacklist, so well kuown in the oil regions
of Pennsylvania, has made its appearance
in Anaconda.
The "blue ticket" is what the men call
it, and if you find your name on a blue
ticket you might as well go home, begin
to pack up your belongings, and get ready
to walk ont of town, if you haven't thc
money to ride.
The introduction of the "blue ticket"
discloses n condition that has never lieen
equalled in the trust-cursed existence of
the city. It proves tliat the infamous
"blue ticket" is but the beginning of another era of tyranny which will incense
the independent citizens of the state.
To describe the "blue ticket" it is necessary to go back a few months. Soon
after the Amalgamated Copper Company
sprang into existence, one of the most
convincing proofs that it was an oifshoot
of tho Standard Oil Company wns the introduction of tho "pedigree slip" aud the
"brass tag" in the Anaconda works.
Most of the readers of the Reveille are
familiar with the "pedigree slip" and the
"brass tag." The former is a form wliich
must bo iilled out* by every applicant, for
work. In it he must state his age, his
nationality, his birthplace, and, in short,
supply the company with a complete and
satisfactory biographical sketch.
" "The "brass tag" was but a part of the
new system of keeping track of the employes. It is the same plan that the Standard Oil Company has worked successfully
for years in its refineries in the east.
If the applicant, for work passed thc
rigid examination and his credentials satisfied tho agents of the company, he was
given a brass tag with a number on it.
When ho went on shift, he passed this
tag through the little window at the timekeeper's ollice and got a red card, on
wliich was registered with au automatic
machine the time of his arrival.
This, now, became his authority to go
to work. It served at once as a check, a
means of identification, and a convenience
for keeping the time of the employe.
At tho conclusion of the shift he passed
in the red card, which was again stamped
by the automatic timepiece, and received
the brass check in return, which he presented iu turn at the beginning of the
next shift.
Recently many of the men on returning
from work found when they passed iu
their red tickets at the timekeeper's ollice
that they were not given the customary
brass check in return, but that a blue
usiially hung.
In many instances tho men thus summarily discharged wero recognized as
thoroughly competent and reliable at their
work, and' tlie only cause of their dismissal could be found in the fact that they
refused to follow the dictates of the bosses
in polities anil vote the ticket the Amalgamated had decided to support.
It was some timo before the men knew
the extent of the company'H new method
of blacklisting. First, several of them
tried for work in the other depart incuts of
the Amalgamated Company's works in
Anaconda. They found thnt the "blue
ticket" stood against them at the foundry,
at the brickyards, und on the 15., A. & P.
They they left town, and found that
the "blue ticket" had killed their chances
of employment in the Amalgamated works
in every part of the state.
Many of them inquired concerning tho
chances of getting work in tlie Amalgamated mines in liutte, wheu these latter re
marked with a ticket of azure hue can get
a pair of shoestrings at the company store
without the money.
It is not generally known outside of
Anaconda that the company store methods ore just, as pernicious as ever. Men
still are required to go to the store to get
their pay checks, and the amount of their
indebtedness to the store is deducted from
the check before payment.
The independent merchants have made
several ineffectual attempts to compete
with the "store," and for a time it seemed
as if the men were going to have an opportunity to trade where they desired, but
the shut-down, the "blue tieket" and the
return to old-time coercion on the part of
the company have intimidated the employes so that the commercial branch of
the Standard Oil tree is flourishing as of
The Copper City Commercial Company
—the euphonious name of the company
store—employs one man solely to spend
his time at the works and watch the men.
He goes to the timekeeper's oflice and
finds out tho exact amount to the credit
of every man employed on the hill.
If tho hooks showed that you had $iu
coming to you at tho Washoe works, you
may rest assured that you can get ijHij
worth of goods at the Copper City.
It has been learned that the "blue
ticket," like the "brass check" and the
"pedigree card," is a Pennsylvania importation, and that for some years the Stand-
ara Oil Company has employed this
method of blacklisting men whom they
could not manage politically.
Assessor Levengood is still standing the
fire of the Amalgamated newspapers,
which have taken a keen dislike to this
officer for his fearless stand on county
valuation. Mayor Frinke was elected by
the votes of the people of Anaconda, yet
tho company is throwing every stumbling
block in his way and trying to hamper
him, as it is mayor Mullins in Butte.
Judge Smith of Lewis and Clarke county, before whoni the municipal contest
was tried, decided that the mayor was
duly elected and duly qualified. Still the
Amalgamated newspapers are keeping up
the fight, and are in every conceivable
manner trying to tie up the new administration—much of their work being done
under the guise of legitimate interest.
These are the methods by which the
Amalgamated Company is trying to reform Anaconda, and by tyranny aud injustice win fights that they cannot win by
fair means.
But the workingmen do not* take kindly
to this "blue ticket" plan, aiid while it
may have tho effect of making men more
reticeut and cautious in expressing their
opinions politically, it will defeat its own
end on election day, when the Standard
Oil crowd will discover once more that coercion and tyranny do not win elections
in Montana.     .

It was a queer couple, says a
preacher in a Massachusetts town,
that drove np to the parsonage door.
She was tall and angular, a typical
"old maid," he was short, fat and
jolly, with a sort of David Harum
look about his eyes. He had a
snug farm, well kept aud paid for;
and she was known as a neat, industrious woman, who had brought
up a family of children left orphans
by the death of her sister.
Sard Cooper assisted the woman
from the wagon as handily as he
could with his f-tiff arm and stiffer
knee. She waited while he hitched
his horse, and together they entered
the parsonage.
"Reckon you can guess what
we're here for, parson," he said.
"My sister Jane, who has kept
house for me nigh on to thirty
years, died last winter, and it's been
lonesome for me and the cows and
pigs since. Miss Jones, here, has
hovered them chickens of her sister's until thev've got from under
her wings and goue to town. Now
'taint far crosslots from my farm
to her's, and we concluded that she
can run my house, and I can run
her farm, and it would be better
for both farm and house. So we
thought we'd just drive over and
get you to hitch us up for a span.
I'm going to be good to her and
provide everything nec'sary, and
she's going to be good to me and
take care o1
it short."
Tho ceremony passed without
special incideut. After Sard had
adimnistered a sounding smack on
Nancy's cheek, he turned to me
and said, "Wal, parson, what do
I owe ye?"
"Well," I said, "you can give
me whatever you choose," aud j
added, with a smile, "give me
what you think she is worth to
In an instant his Yankee love
for a bargain came to the front,
and fishing an old-fashioned copper
cent out of his pocket lie said,
"Parson, I reckon I won't be stuck
very bad if I give you that to begin
with. If I find she's worth more,
why, you'll hear from me  again."
Ho had the better of ine; there
was nothing more to be said. 1

me the bill," he ended breathlessly,
"for I have to get to school."
The grocer made out tho bill,
wondering at the queerness of the
order, and handed it to the boy,
asking as he did so:
"Did your mother send the
money or does she want the goods
The boy seized tho bill and said
with a sigh of satisfaction:
"Ma didn't send me at all. It's
my arithmetic lesson and I had to
get it done somehow."
As he ran out the grocer opened
the cigar case and handed out
smokes to the men there.
"It's on me," he said. "Say,

The British Inventor says:    "An
idea that is often brought to us is
that  of a self-lighting   cigarette.
This is attained by attaching to the
end of a cigarette a   6mall portion
of composition, such as is U8cd   on
safety matches.   The invention has
been patented by different people
many times and   crops   up   with
aggravating regularity and most extraordinary    persistency.      Some
people bring cigars with a blob  of
phosphurus stuck on top, regardless
of the fact that not only would such
a composition in contact with good
tobacco entirely spoil it,   but  the
effect of drawing   in   the   lighted
chemical would probably half  suf-

self-lighting cigar is always a non-
smoker, we need hardly add,   and
always fails to see that his is  one
of tbe inventions nobody wants."
