EDITORIAL COMMENT.  .'..- The Hon. Geo. E. Foster addressed a large  aid enthusiastic meeting at the  Fire  Hall on  Saturday evening.      Saturday night is a bad  one on which to have a meeting, as ver3r many  business ruen are engaged,   the   stores   being  open until nine or ten o'clock.     Nevertheless,  the fire hall was well filled  with   enthusiastic  Conservatives.    The   speaker of the evening  summed up the   political   situation, -pointing  out the inconsistencies of the  Liberal   party,  and   comparing   their  anti-election   promises  with subsequent actions.       On   the   point  of  finances the hon. gentleman,   as  might be expected,   was   very   happy, and   succeeded   in  proving   that   the   big   balances   which    are  claimed as appearing on the right side  of the  public ledger are fictitious.      To keep up this  deception    the   country was   being   run   into  debt.      The  exposition   was very clever, and  had the effect of making many converts.    Mr.  Foster advocated a strict enforcement of party  lines, arguing that by no  other  means   could  strength be attained.      It   was   desirable,  he  contended, that a man should take a  decided  stand  on  politics as   on   other   matters,   and  while  "ins"  and   "outs"   might  serve   the  purpose for a time, there was nothing like the  good old Conservative or Liberal party lines.  When a man avowed himself a   Conservative  or Liberal his fellow man knew exactly where  he stood in politics and what  to   expect   from  him.       As   a  result   of the hon. gentleman's  efforts, a Conservative association   was organized, and from the enthusiasm  displayed it is  evident that the party in  Nelson   will   make  itself felt.  The People, a weekly London newspaper,  says that the Canadian Pacific Railway has  decided to develop mountaineering as an attraction for tourists in the Rockies. The com  pany has sent an official to Switzerland to engage Alpine; guides, who will -��� forthwith be  shipped out to Canada. If this be true, it is a  move in the right direction. Something  more should be done to make known to the  world the grandeur of Canadian scenery.  There is no countr}- in the world where mountaineering can be enjoyed to a greater degree  than right here in British Columbia, nor nowhere is game more plentiful, whether it be  sought with the rod or the gun. We have  glaciers in this country from which the most  attractive in Europe might be taken and the  " piece " would not be missed ; we have  mountains compared to which those receiving  the attention of Old Country sight-seers are as  molehills ; we have g^me as big as the sports-,  rnaar need desire to pop and as plentiful and  varied as could be demanded ; our lakes and  riven abound with fish, and added to all is  the charm of newness of scene and expanse of  territory. If mountaineering can be encouraged British Columbia has attractions peculiarly her own.  The Mail and Empire in alluding to the  action of Lieut-Governor Mclrinis in calling  upon Hon. Robt. Beaven to form a cabinet,  says the governor's coup is a surprise all  round, and adds : " It is a new thing in government and we shall watch it with interest  because precedent is a great governing influence just now.  > j  Among other important questions to come  before the Anglican synod which opens at  Vancouver today, is one in favor of creating a  new diocese for the Kootenays, wdth Nelson  as the See city. Under existing arrangements  this section of the province is, invariably,  very poorly represented at the church synod,  because of the distance, and expense which  delegates are put to. The Kootenays are now  fast filling up, and their strength in church  matters entitles them to more satisfactory  facilities of management than those at present  enjoyed. A numerously signed petition will  be presented in favor of the change, and it is  confident^ expected that the prayer of the  petitioners wTill be acceeded to.  The cruel war is over. A protocol has been  duly concluded and signed, and an armistice  declared by both Spain and the United States.  Orders have been issued for a suspension of  hostilities, and in all probability, as far as  Spain is concerned, there will be no more  fighting at Cuba. It is to be regretted that  peace   negotiations   were    not   entered   upon  sooner, as it long ago   became  apparent   that  the victory must be on the   side   of  the   Stars  and Stripes because of  superior   force.      The  war was ostensibly undertaken wich the  view  of freeing the  Cubans   from  the   tyranny  of  Spain, but the conditions of peace as prescribed  ���'.would lead to the suspicion that   Uncle   Sam  had an ulterior object in view.      The portocol  provides that Spain shall relenquish all claim  to sovereignty over and title to Cuba. But has  the war secured Cuba for the Cubans or for the  victors? It looks as as if to the victors belong  the spoils.      Not alone is Spain forced to surrender her sovereignty over Cuba,  but   she is  obliged   to cede  to  the  United States   Porto,  Rico and other islands in the West Indies and  an island in- the  Ladrones   and   to   keep  her  hands off Manila and the Philippines   pending  the conclusion of a   treaty   of peace,   the full  terms of which will be submitted to a commission to sit in Paris on October  i.      Up to that  date it will be incumbent on both   powers   to  keep a strong force at the scene of operations.  With the Spaniards this will not be   difficult,  as they are well acclimatized, but the forces of  the United States   are    bound to suffer   from  climatic troubles.      Already the men are craving to be sent home and fever is rampant.    As  yet nothing has been said as to a cash  indemnity, that will come.      How   the victors will  treat the vanquished remains to be seen.  The temperance advocates of Rossland have  organized with the object of making a vigorous fight on the plebiscite. It is time that  Nelson should fall into line. The subject is  one deserving serious consideration, and if it  is to be intelligently handled, there should be  no time lost in preparing for the contest. The  general opinion seems to be that British Columbia will be against the measure. The advocates of prohibition look upon this province  as one of the very doubtful ones, and not  without reason. Our liquor laws are not  enforced. The free and easy style of a new  and unsettled country still prevails. The  saloon door is never closed, and drunkenness  is not looked upon as a vice.  The curfew does not yet ring in New Westminster, and for the credit of the city we hope  it never will. The few who want to legislate  the community into goody-goodiness are disposed to force the psimitive curfew, but the  feeling generally appears to be against the  measure. The Columbian in dealing with the  subject says : " Have the city fathers considered, in drafting their Curfew Bylaw, how  they are going to enforce such  a  measure, all THE NELSON  ECONOMIST.  ��  *��w  m  ^ln.%  over the city, with a comparatively small  police force? A law not properly enforced has  a tendency to bring all law intocontempt, and  our civic Solon's should make sure that, in  seeking the moral improvement of the rising  generation, they do not, instead, teach them  to become despisers and breakers of law. Then  just think of the harrowing idea, if a down  town bank should be burglarized some fine  evening while ( the, finest' were out in the  suburbs, 'running in 'a refractory five-year-  old.!'":/"'       ���������.���'''���.        ' "���-��� "    '���:������-'  1 : The prohibition plebiscite is to be submitted  on Sept. 29th   throughout Canada,  and those  who profess to be in  a position to speak,   sa}'  that  it ..will   be carried   in   all   the   provinces  except   Quebec and   British   Columbia.    The  question   is submitted   in  the following   form;  and voters are asked to mark their ballot for or  against :     "Are you in favor of the passing of  an act   prohibiting the importation,  manufacture   or sale of spirits;   wine,   ale,   beer,  cider  and    all   other   alcoholic   liquors    for   use   as  beverages?"      The   persons   entitled   to   vote  shall be those who have   the right of the provincial  franchises    or "those   who  under    the  Dominion   franchise   act    passed last    session  would   have   the   right to   vote in   a   federal  election.     For   the purposes of  this vote the  same proceedings, as nearly as mny be, will.be;  had   as    in   the   case 'of  a   general   dominion  election.     The ballot papers' will be printed at  Ottawa and will be forwarded with the writ by  Major. Chapleau,   the clerk   of the  crown   in  chancena to returning officers.     Every returning officer will appoint two agents to attend at  each polling station on behalf of those desiring  an affirmative answer to the question and two  on behalf of those desiring  a negative answer.  These agents will not be entitled to remuneration from the public treasury.     In the absence  of such agents two electors represen ing each  interest will be admitted to the booth to watch  the final summing up.c  The enormous extent of the coal beds of the  Crow's Nest pass is one of the best assurances  of the future prosperity of this province. The  development of the property is being pushed  for all it is worth, and as soon as the line of  rail is laid an ample supply of cheap fuel will  be available for manufacturing as well as  domestic purposes, England owes much of  her Greatness to \1CT [TQn and coal deposits and  with like wealth at hand in this province there  is no reason why British Columbia should not  take a leading place among the great manufacturing centres. Recent examination shows  the coal seams to be some 132 feet in thickness,  and Professor Selwyn estimates that there is  an aiea of not less than 144 square miles  through which these seams of coal run with  tolerable regularity. A rough calculation he  says would give about 49,950,000 tons to the  square mile, and if one-half of this is available  there are in each square mile 24,976,000 tons.  advertise the Rossland camp. The purchasers  are the Gooderham-Blackstock party, who at  present control the War Eagle, and the fact  that -'they, are so well satisfied with their  original purchase as to further invest to the  extent of $2,0-0,000 showsthe confidence they  have in the'''.Kootenays No doubt the cheap  smelting facilities had' much to do wdth the  investment. The War Eagle was one of those  mines which practic9lly ceased as a shipper���  while Heinze was running the Trail smelter,  but a now that that-'concern has fallen into the  hands of the C.P.R. and'the rates are such as  to encourage mining great things may be expected from Rossland. .When such mines as  the Centre Star and War .Eagle are being  pushed for all they are, worth it is bound to  bring th�� camp to the fore. It requires something to counteract the evil effects of the Le  Roi trouble, and nothing appears better  calculated to accomplish this end .than the  deal which has just been put through with the  Centre Star:  In   view  of the   approaching conference   at  Quebec, the sealers of Victoria have forwarded  a petition to the governor-general urging that  na further   adjustmentor arrangement of,the  sealing   question   ; be , agreed     upon,    which  ignores the causes and.  reasons   for   the   present unfortunate and unsatisfactory   condition  of those engaged in the fur seal industry.    " It  is submitted,'' they add, '' that   the   sacrifices  which have been emposed upon your  memorialists, and those whose   interest  are identical,  011 account of the foreign policy of the empire,  should not be overlooked,.and if  further  concessions are to be made by the    United   States  for important reasons, or for benefits  to  other  British-Canadian   industries  or   interests,    the  principle of full compensation should obtain."  They urge that a sum of   not   less   than   $200  per ton gross registered tonnage of each vessel  be allowed as compensation to cover the money  invested and losses sustained.      An   appendix  shows the gross tonnage at present to be 3,636.  The Centre Star has been sold, and the purchase price is $2,000,000. This is a respectable   figure,   and   the deal   will   do   much   to  Last   week we had   occasion to   refer to the  undue expedition displayhd by the mayor and  aldermen   in forcing the   electric by-law deal.  Thev  had   had  a wire   from  Victoria   steting  that the motion to quash the by-law had failed,  and   at   once a   hole and-corner   meeting   was  held at which the interested little clique issued  a cheque for   $35,400 and  made arrangements  for the taking over of the plant and franchise.  But   the   mayor   and aldermen   slightly overshot   the   mark.    The   motion   to   quash   the  by-law had not been decided, and a notice was  served on the city on Saturday by order of Mr.  Justice Walkem.  stoping all proceedings until  the point at issue be heard.     It will be.remem- :  bered  that   the by-law  was   claimed  to   have  been carried by a majority of two, and considering all the circumstances of the case the dissatisfied   ratepa}rers     have   every   reason    to  suspect that all was not right.    There is cause  to .believe that  the property is not worth the-  money   asked for it,   that if the  city grows a  much larger and more modern plant will have  to be secured   and that the present "bargain"  will be valueless. The reticence shown to  give full particulars is not calculated to instil  confidence.'. The motion to quash the by-law  will, it is expected, be heard next Week, and  interesting revelations may be looked for.  As was   anticipated the Hon.   Robt. Beaven  did   not   succeed in  forming a   cabinet.    The  task was too   much for him.    As will be seen  in another  column,   Mr.   Beaven  reported his  failure to the Lieut.-Governor, and Mr. Semlin  has been   called in.     That   he will manage  to  get around him a sufficient following there can  be no doubt,   provided his party are prepared  to accept   him   as   their   leader,   but. when  it  comes to   a division it  will be found   that the  government cannot stand.     The full strength  of the party is but nineteen.     When they elect  a   speaker the}^   will find   themselves  upon  a  division just one short of the required number,  so   that another   appeal to the   country in the  ne^r   future   may   be   expected.     Under these  circumstances   there is no  time to  be   lost   in  perfecting    organization,    so   that    when   the  time   comes  the electors   of British   Columbia  will be prepared   for the fight.     At the recent  election Mr. l^urner's followers were altogether  too sanguine of success, and to   this fact must  be   attributed   the   failure to   secure   a   good  working   majority.     However,   they   will   no  doubt profit b}o past experience and when  the  next   opportunity presents   itself they; will be  found prepared.  The Klondyke will furnish  many   a   sensational story.      Returning   gold   seekers every  day have pleasant or   painful   experiences   to  add, but about the hardest'ease that  has come  under    our notice   is   that   of  a   man   named  O'Hara, a Winnipeger   wrho   ventured  north.  O'Hara, it appears,   located   some   good   pro-  pert}o in  the   vicinity   of  Circle   Cit3'   and in  American territory.    No sooner had the worth  of his claim become known than his   less fortunate companions made the discovery that he  was a British subject, and as such was not entitled to hold property���and they jumped  his  cl-.iin.     The   case is a particularly   hard   one,  especiall}5"   considering   the   privileges    which  American   citizens enjoy in   the gold  fields of  the north.     They   are permitted   to  stake   off  the richest   ground, to work  it,  to   derive   all  the benefits of protection which the British law  affords, and all this without contributing'more  to    the    public     exchequer   than    does     her  Majesty's   loyal subjects.     By far the  greater  number of  miners in the   country are  Americans,   and  yet  when a Canadian  attempts  to  stake   a claim on  iVmerican   territory he is at  once   pounced  upon.     If  the   objection   were  raised   b}r a couple   of disappointed men,  one  could possibly excuse their action, but in the  instance under consideration a public meeting  was   called    and   at    this meeting the   rights  of  American  citizens were insisted   upon and  O'Hara was ejected.     Now what   is sauce for  the goos--*  ought  to be sauce  for the gander.  If Canadians  are denied the privilege  of staking  claims  in American   territory  Americans  should   not enjoy   the   privilege   of  claiming  Canadian property.

HER   GUARDSMAN  In a small hpusein Clarges street a 'girl of  iS stood in her presentation dress, while her  long three yards and a half of white satin  train trailed behind her. A maid knelt on  the giound, picking out here and there a leaf  from the sprays of lilies of,the valley.  Marjorie looked in the mirror and patted a  rebellious curl. " I feel excited. I can't  help it. Oh, mother, I wish it were like a  sto^, the country mouse being taken to court  and a real live duke or ear! falls in love with  the mouse.

" You'll have to take the taskmaster, Love,  into your bargain with Fate, dear," said Mrs.  Beauchamp. And Marjorie hid her face in  her levely bouquet of lilies of the valley, white  orchids and white violets, and her heart gave  a quick throb.  There was a" somebody "then. Perhaps  no belted, earl nor strawberry leaved duke, but  a handsome/sunburned face looked into hers,  ���      p ......  the mellow voice had whispered.  *.."_; ' * .*-. ,    *  It was later on the same day, the carriages  in endless strings down the mall, an eager  crowd pressing close to all the windows, making their remarks freely.  " This waiting is very tiring," Aaid Marjorie,  " and I am so hungry."  " The gates are opened. We shall soon be  in, my dear," said Lady Hamilton taking a  sip of sherry from a convenient flask. They  had come now to the line of sentries, the  guardsmen standing like statues.  The sunshine coming out in a great sheaf of  splendor almost dazzled Marjorie, as looking  through the glass window she was conscious  of one of the guardsmen on duty watching- her  intentl3r. His bearskin almost hid his eyes  and brow.  Was she dreaming or was their distinct  recognition in that soldier's glance. The  sweeping brown mustache concealed his  mouth. She looked at him again, the carriage  moved forward, he smiled. She bent forward, and her face dimpled into a smiling  response ; impulsiveW she waved her hand.  " To whom, may I ask, were you bowing ?"  said Lad\' Hamilton severly.  " I recognize some one, auntie, in the  crowd," faltered Marjorie.  And her aunt, noting the sudden rush of  color and shining eyes, grew suspicions. " A  man was the -onlj7" cause for that kind of  emotion," she thought sagely.  Marjorie  almost   forgot   that   fleeting   look  while making her bow   to   heranajesty.      But  the guardsman did not intend she should   for-  sret.        A   brilliant   scheme  had   entered    his  mind.  * * * *  Truly, 011I3' a guardsman scribbling awa}r  for dear life, in all the barrenness of barrack  surroundings, but he knew he had finished  forever wdth the long, tedious marches. The  pipeclaying, the "brass rags," could be  chucked away, the parade ground    need   hear  no longer the tread of Corporal Ferguson's  feet, no more lonery watches in the tower,  when the thought of Anne Boleyn's ghost to  keep him company was not cheering:  Goodby to the arduous life of " roughing,"  goodby to the jarring   influences   which   had  surrounded Iiim for two years���-years of  stern  discipline and hard training.      He   had  come  " out of it well.  And what was he writing, scheming lover,  full of ardent fervor ? His last, test ! A  sweet little letter, scented delicately, lay next  to his heart.      This is what he said :  " Do not lead me to do wrong or to deceive.  ,'"You must let me tell  my another,   and   I  am  ready to face   the   future   with   you.      I   will  meet 3^011 once again but I can no longer keep  it secret."  " Bad young man !" he chuckled, and Marjorie Beauchamp that same da3^  received . this  .epistle,:  " Dear sweet,G Marjorie, companion of m3a  thoughts and highest aspirations, when I saw  3'ou a fortnight1 ago, I was determined fate  should never sever us again. Darling, how  good you have been to me, and I shall not try  ��� 'thstt loving heart another day. You are ever  in my,'miri;d," my best thoughts are of 3'ou, and  my one great longing is to win,..you. for my  very own." ,  She looked ver3^ sweet in her picture hat  covered with violets ai she walked into her  mother's room, dressed for a walk.  "Mother," she said, going over to her and  turning very pale ; " mother, I can not keep  m3r secret from 3rou an3T longer."  "A secret dear child ? Why, no, of course  not," said Mrs. Beauchamp tender^, and put  out her hand.  " Mother, do you remember two 3rears ago  I went on a visit to our old cousin James.  When I was there, I met a lovel}r girl, Constance Ferguson. Do you remember nay tell-  in g you how I heloed nurse her? And ���  and a brother of hers. Charlie Ferguson, had  just arrived from Australia.''  "Well, my child, what of it ?"  " I was only 16, mother, and he said I was  so 3roung, and he had a hard life iu front of  him. He had quarreled with his uncle and  was practical!}- cast off. Mother, can't 3rou  eucss ? I have seen him again��� I love him!"  The bright head was bowed and hot tears  splashing down.  "Read  this   mother.      He   wishes   me    to  meet him toda>r in the park, and    he   sa3*s   he  has some great news to tell me.  He is better off."  " But what is he now, Marjorie?"  " He is in the guards, mother."  "In   the   guards!"    said   the    poor    lad3r,  bewildered.       " Then he must be very well off  indeed.''  "No, mother, no. He enlisted. He is  onl3r a corporal.-"  '' Onl3r a corporal !'' cried Mrs. Beauchamp,  clasping her hands. "In a dreadful red  coat ! You have been seen out with him !  Good heavens, Marjorie!"  "Oh, mother, don't be so horrified ! I call  him my pillar  box,   and   he   sa3-s   I   was the  bravest girl he knew to meet him, and after I  did he said he would come and see you and  explain. And I am to marry him. And,  after all "���winding up her incoherent speech  dramatically���'' it isn't the coat that makes  the man ! And, mother, may I go and meet  him and bring him back ?"  1" Oh; Marjorie ! '' cried her poor mother,  ' 'what would your aunt say ? I suppose I  must consent to seeing him. He certainl3r  writes a charming letter."  i!i  ". In the face of eve^body", not ashamed ?"  said Ferguson a little quizzically, as he and  his sweetheart got up from their chairs in  Rotton rowv She looked up half shyly at  the tall, handsome guardsman.      '  "And now that you know everything,  Marjorie, will 3^011 forgive my putting-''you :���''to  such a test ?" y  "I   love   you," she    whispered,     blushing  hothy.       "But, oh,    how    glad    mother   will  .be!"    '    ". -���' ���  They were walking alone gayly, she the  perfection of dainty prettiness, tripping along  at his side, many curious and even inquisitive  glances following the pair.  "Look, Charlie," cried Marjorie, her face  dimpling into mischievous laughter ; "there's  auntie just passed us, driving. Look; she's  turning back to look at us. Oh, her face !  Isn't it -i picture ?''  Lad3^ Hamilton alighted from her carriage  simply trembling with indignation. She  swept into her sister's room, her silk dress  knocking down a table, a vase and some books,  the plumes in her bonnet nodding formidabho  " Helena," she cried, " something too  terrible has occurred. Your daughter���my  niece���is out walking with a common soldier."  " My dear Eliza, I can explain," faltered  Mrs. Beauchamp. " Don't���don't be angry.  The 3>oung man is on his wa37 here now " ���  "On his way now !" almost shierked   Lady  Hamilton.      " You are going to let a man    in  a red coat and  white   belt   enter   this   house  Helena, 3^011 should   enter   a   lunatic  asylu.r .  This���this is appalling."  They heard a jo3^ous little laugh. Ano  Lad3r Hamilton rose to face them. Mis  Beauchamp felt faint from emotion. W1iac  could be wrong when Marjorie wore such a  lovety look ? And a gleam of mirth in Ik r  e3^es too. And the mother saw one of th ;  finest looking fellows she had seen in her li:c  fill up the doorwa3^ with his tall figure.  " Mother���auntie���let me introduce 3^011 to  1113' lover, the guardsman, and soon to be my  husband���the Earl of Desart."  "Please forgive me, Mrs Beauchamp," 1 o  said in a winning wa3r.

(Special correspondence to The Economist.)  This little place has been quite lively for the  last week or ten days. Last Friday Mr. Ro3^,  president of the London Consolidated Gold-  fields Exploration and Mining Co., came in  on Fred Coyle's steam launch from Pilot Bay;  and with him Mr. Wilkie, a Rossland surveyor, who went up to survey the company's  group of claims on Canyon Creek.  On Monday Mr. Martin, accompanied by  Messrs Brelich and Greaves, of the Kootenay  B. C. syndicate; arrived and took a trip over  the summit to the Pyramid camps.  Messrs.   c Cummings   and   Sergeant,   of  the  Turner, Beeton  & Co.,   Nelson,   spent   Satur-  ��� day and Sunday   here,   and had   some   good  fishing in   Crawford   Creek.       They made   a  catch of sixty in one day.  Mr. H. B. Thomson returned on Thursday  from his trip through the St.  Mary's countryo  The McCrea Bros, have started work on a  claim between Four Mile Creek and Springer  Creek, and have struck a'fine"b6dy of quartz  which promises to be very fine.  CABINET   MAKING,  ���ih  The following from the Colonist will explain the political situation :  In harmony with the promise given on  Thursda3^ that he would announce his intended  course of action 3?-esterda3a Hon. P.obert  Beaven stated to the Colonist during the afternoon that he had decided upon the abandon-:  ment of the task of forming a ''-ministry. e At  5 o'clock he waited upon the Lieutenant-Governor b}' appointment at the Parliament buildings. When interviewed as to the nature and  result of this meeting, Hen. Mr. Beaven  remarked briefly :  " Taking all the surrounding circumstances  into consideration, I decided to ask the Lieutenant-Governor to relieve me of the task of  forming a government.     I have just done so."  Hon. Mr. Beaven had nothing more-to sa3'  in the matter, his reasons being alread3^ fairty  well set out in the interview given -by him on  Thursda3a and published in the Colonist of  3*esterday morning.  Having received Hon. Mr. Beaven's resignation of the commission to select' a ministry,  His Honor at once communicated with Mr. C.  A. Semlin, who had remained in the eit\7 to  await the shaping of events, requesting that  he assume the task.  This the leader of the opposition consented  to do. He had no statement to make, further  than to confirm the news of his acceptance of  office, and to state that he had put himself in  communication with the representative men of  the party and did not anticipate that he would  encounter aty- serious obstacles in the completion of a government.   v  THE CITY COUNCIL.  The weekly meeting of the city council was  held on Monday afternoon, Aid. Teetzel presiding in the absence of the mayor. Aldermen Hillyer, Madden,Gilker and Malone were  also present.  to  of  A petition was handed in asking'for an extension of the water S3'stem to Front street.  The city engineer explained that he had in  contemplation such an extension as that asked  'for. "   '' " a!; ; '   y - '���        ���.;.'���'���'.,  On motion of Aid.

The  building is of wocd, plastered inside aid wains-  cotted around. The auditcriam is 56x36 with  a ceiling 23ft frcm floor, and all well lighted.  Comfortable seating capacit3* fcr 400 persons  is provided, with seats arranged amphitheatre  fashion. Elec.tric lights are being placed in  position, and arrangements are made for installing heating apparatus. The basement is  fitted up as a Surida3' school or meeting room,  with a floor space the.same as that above, and  a couple of parlors or committee rooms. Externally the building presents a very attractive  appearance. It lies back from the street line  several feet, and is approached b3r two flights  of steps, leading to the vestibule, folding doors  from which open into the church. A bell-  tower, 70 feet high soars above a well slanted  roof, and adds to the beauty of the edifice. Tlie  plans were prepared by Architect Ta\lor, of  Rossland, and are faithfully carried out by  Contractor Kribbs, under the supervision of  Messrs. Ewert & Carrie, architects. Opening  services, as alread3- stated, will .be held on  Sunday, 21st inst., 011 which occasion the pulpit will be occupied b3r Rev. R. Trotter, of  Calva^ Baptist Church, Victoria. Rev. Mr.  Walsh, the pastor, and congregation are to be  congratulated on their success in perrnanentty  establishing the Baptist church in Nelson.  ���  The annual statement of the post-office  savings bank shows that deposits increased  $860,630, withdrawals increased $1,197,000  and interest allowed depositors decreased $41,-  7S6. The amount at credit of depositors  increased $2,100,118.  Descussiug "the action of Lieut-governor  Mclunis in Calling upon Hon..' Robt. Beaven  to form a government, the Colouest sa3rs.  The   constitutional    principle   is   that    the  Crown must alwa}^  act   upon   the  advice   of  some responsible minister.      There is no gaiu-  sa3ring this proposition.    But what responsible  minister advised His  Honor   in   this   matter ?  Mr. Turner certainty   did   not.     Mr.   Beaven  did not, for his   hon. had   already   asked   Mr. ,  Turner to resign   before he had spoken to Mr.  Be;) ven.  :' We think, therefore, itais ve^ clear .  that Flis Honor has   violated   the   well-understood principles of the constitution   t>3jp under- /  taking to do   of  his  own   mere   motion   what  eveiy precedent  shows   can   onty be   done   on  ���-��������� - ** f   ��� -, ,  the advice of some one, Who must answer for  it to the people. Mr. Beaven can ;,say- that he  is not responsible for the action of the; Lieutenant-Governor, because he did not advise it.  He may sa5r that he' 'found a certain position  existing, that is, he found the Lieutenant-  Governor without advisers and on being asked  to form a ministry, consented to do so ; but  that he declines, to take the responsibility of  the acts which led up to this condition. In  such a case there is no remedy left to the  people if the3^ disapprove of the course taken,  but impeachment, and in the case of the  sovereign, the onty remedy-would be a revol-y  ution. This argument shows how utterly,  without justification the action of; the Lieutenant Governor has been. The present crisis  is without precedent in the political histor3r of  this or aiw Ot ~er country, and no one can  - de.iy^ that it if-wholly, due to the ill-considered  action of til; Lieutenant-Governor No  emergenc3T existed, which warranted him in  takine anv action whatever. It is true  that the government desired to expend the  appropriations passed last winter, but surety  as between a ministr}*, which has been in  power lor \^ears, and a new set or men, none  of whom might have seats in-' the house and  whose leader had just been defeated at the  polls, the Lieutenant-Governor could hardty  justify the choice of the latter as an instrument  for giving effect to the wishes of the legislature. Mr. Turner and his colleagues could  certainly claim that X.ney had been commissioned  by the last house to expend the appropriations.  Noclaim can be made that. Mr. Beaven had  aiyAsnch commission. He certainty had not,  so far as the voice of the people was expressed  in regard to him. There was no evidence  before the Lieutenant-Governor warranting  the assumption that the people had withdraw  from Mr. Turner the confidence which the  last house had reposed in him. Why then  should this needless and extremeh* embarrassing crisis have been precipitated ? It cannot be justified. The matter can hardly be  allowed ao rest here. Some step must be  taken to vindicate the right of the people to  have constitutional usage respected.  The C.P.R. Arrowhead and Thompson  Landing service, at present being- performed  by " Str. Illecillewait" will be withdrawn on  August 15th.  m  ^^^^ THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  THE MAN"' WHO HUNG ON.  Trier Story of. an. Editor Who at Last Paid His  Bills and Even Got Out an Extra.  The  rattle  of  the   Gazette's press   was   the  only   sound   in     the   long,   one-storied   brick  structure occupied by its editorial  and   printing rooms.     The  half  grown   boy   who,   with  Judson himself, made up the staff of the paper,  kept the press going  steadily,   a feat  learned  by long practice.    He reached   up  one   hand,  shoved a sheet down to the guides, keeping the  ��� crank turning with his foot arid the other hand,,  and the old machine rattled on like a skeleton  fluttering in the wind.    Beyond the j artition,  in ..the/little square apartment dignified by the  name of office, though almost as bare and  unsightly as the printing-room, sat Judson,   [Proprietor and editor of  the  Gazette,  hi*  elbows  resting on the desk-lid, his face in   his   hand-a  There was  a   hopelessness  in   his   attitude,   a  despairing   stoop    to    his    shoulders,    which  revealed,more than did the shabbiuess   of  his  apparel and of the little  office,   the  depths   to  which he had come.  Judson had come out from the East five  years before, with all the hope and enthusiasm  of a boundless ignorance of the country to  which he had journeyed, to carve his fortune.  In these five years he had gained quantities of  experience, but the fortune had thus far proved  elusive���-verv elusive indeed. He had put his  faith in the then promising settlement of Bird  City, and had started in to mould and guide  public thought through the columns of the  Gazette. . . . Bird City was not even the  centre of a " thr ving fanning country.'1  Thriving farming sections are growing scarce  in the West these years. Slowly at first the  population of the town decamped It was a  suggestively unfortunate name���Bird.City; it  was soon literally spreading its wings and  migrating to other and moie pn mising  lands.     ...  Judson felt the bitterness of the. situation  more keenly than ever to-day. Finances were  at their lowest possible ebb. He had been at  work all night setting up the paper now on  the rattling old press in the other room. When  the edition was off he should have to tell Sa.v-  yer to go. The paper had not taken in a single  subscription or a dollar for advertising in a  fortnight. Judson's overcoat had bought the  ink necessary to get out this present issue. The  thought made him shiver as he sat there before  the desk, for the wind was beginning to blow  chill across the prairie. The old press stopp�� d  its asthmatic rattle, and Sawyer brought in  one of the damp sheets.  " She's getting warmed up now, an' the  'rag' looks pretty well," he said. "Why  don't you have a fire in here?"���"I'm not  cold," returned Jud-on, reaching out a blue  hand for the paper.  Sawyer cast a glance into the empty wood-  box, and said, as he went back into the printing-room: " Better come in here. I've got a  fire."  Judson spread the paper out upon the desk  and looked at it. With all his poverty, the  Gazette did. not  show   it typographically.     It  made a far neater appearance than many  more prosperous papers. The Gazette was not  unknown among its contemporaries, either  Its well-turned editorials and pointed paragraphs upon general matters were widey  copied, sometimes with credit given, oftener  without. Several city dailies were notably  brighter editorially the day after the Gazette  reached their offices.   .  He threw aside the paper at last arid rose.  At the farther end of the street was a man���  one of the few merchants remaining in the  town���-who owed him a bill. He would try to  collect it, and, if successful, could paj7 Sawyer  and perhaps have a bit left. "But he hesitated  as a sudden puff of wind shook the loosened  windows and swept in beneath the door; he  shrank "from facing the blast. But the trip  was necessary. The man would never come  to him, and it was urgent that he should have  ... D    . ' .  .''  the money. He folded up several exchanges  and placed them across his chest, buttoning  his coat lightly over them. One never realizes  how -much protection from the cold a newspaper is until he has tried this.  But while be still hesitated, the door -ud-  denlv swung open and a visitor entered. Ata  glance Judson saw that he was not a resident  of Bird City. He sat down, slipped the papers  from under his coat, and assumed his most  business-like air.  " Trie wind is actually fierce to-day," sa id  the stranger, smiling He drew off his gloves  and took the lemaming chair in the little  office. " Does it always blow this way in in tree  parts?"���-" It's apt to at thi-�� season. What  can I do for you?"' inquired Judson.  "This is the office ui the Gazette, isn't it?"  ���" Yes."  " You're the onlv paper in town?"���" We  certainly have that distinction."  The visitor glanced over the room. " I guess  you're no better off than most country papers,  eh?" hesugge.-ted, frankly.���" Well," admitted  Jud-on, " we are not exactly rich."  " I've   been   through   your   town,"   paid   the  other.      " It's   like  a   graveyard,  isn't  it?"���  " Well, at this time of year "  " Yes, yes, 1 know. These bo >m towns  always do slump. By the way"���he leaned  over and tapped the society pin on the lappel  of Judson's shabby coat���" by the way, we  should know each other." He displayed the  Sime insignia upon his own waistcoat; and  they shook hands. The visitor offered Judson  a cigar, and nothing further was said till they  had " smoked up."  " What college?" inquired the visitor, behind  his blue cloud.���" Williams."  " Y' don't mean ii!    So'm I."  They shook hands again. Judson smiled  and pulled at the cigar luxuriously. "I was  in '89," he said.  " That's so? I followed you ont the next  year. Must have known of you. They didn't  tell me your name up town when I jnquired  for the office of the paper."���"It's Judson,"  said the propretor of the Gazette.  "Judson I Not Mortimer Judson?" cried  the other.���" The very same."  "By George! I'd   never   have   known   you.  You must remember me.. If was Stebbins, of  '90. . '.;.' . By the way, I'm connected with  the P. W. & N, M. My governor's president.  I'm sort of an advance agent myself."  Judson stopped smoking. He looked across  at the younger man: there was something in  his eyes Stebbins did not understand. He  plainly saw evidence of'" hard times "in the  little office; but how hard these times were  only the man who hung on knewa  "You see," said Stebbins," the P.W. & N.M.  has finally decided to extend its branch. We've  been quietly at work for some time and ground  is already broken between here and Racine.  The route proposed before the boom has been  abandoned. Folks wanted too much for their  land. Now we've bought up>the- land quietly  and will have trains running next summer.  It's a good thing you hung on, Judson. This  is your lot back here, I take it?" he added,  glancing out of the window. "Well, it'l face  the station. What I looked the paper up for  is to advertise some titles. They're too late  for this week, I suppose?"'  "We're running off the edition now," said  Judson weakly.  "Well, no hurry. There'll be a good deal of  this sort of stuff come your way. You treat  us white and youMl lo*e nothing by it."  Judson sat up and breathed again. "This i^  big news f >r Bird City," he said. " It will be  the making of it."  "It'll he the making of your paper," said  Stebbins, cheerfully.  " I expected to put our work out mostly in  Racine; but of course an old college friend and  a fellow of the same society^"  " Thank you," said Hudson, gravely, and he  accepted the bundle of copy Stebbins drew  from his pocket.  "By the way," the railroad man added,  ".until we get thi��* department in some kind  of running order, you needn't look for payment through the usual red-tape channels  You figure up this stuff now, and I'll pay for  it and get it off my mind." He drew a roll of  notes from his pocket.  " As you please," said the other, calmly, but  he figured on the margin of the slips with  trembling fingers. He went to the door a  moment latter, and bowed his visitor ont,  "I'll accept your invitation to dinner some  other day," said Stebbins. lI shall be around  here most of the winter."  Judson went back to his desk and stared  from the crisp bank-notes to the printed slips.  Suddenly he called Sawyer. The clack of the  press ceased, and his satellite appeared-  " Sawyer said the editor, with unshaken voice,  " stop the press, and pull off the editorial  page.    We're going to issue and extra."  "A whatl" gasped Sawyer.  " Yes, sir. And, by the way, Sawyer,"  pursued Judson calmly, " here's what we owe  you to Saturday night. Be quick about that  form, please. I'll give you the first 'take' of  copy in a few minutes."  But after the wondering Sawyer departed,  the man who hung on bowed his head, and  the tears fell upon the printed slips and the  bank-notes strewn over the desk-lid. THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  Owing to an accident, w7hich was not discovered until several hundred copies of our  present edition had been printed, pages 3 and  7 got misplaced.  at present stands there is nothing to prevent  any person, no matter what his nationality,  from holding mineral claims in the Yukon,  but the sooner this law be changed the better,  unless, Indeed, some little spirit of reciprocit3r  be shown.  Brooklyn is the latest addition  to the town  - or city  life of Kootenay.    A   few weeks  ago  the  town   site  was   a   miniature   wilderness,  today the place boasts of a population of 2,000.  Perhaps the majority of Brooklynites are living  under  canvas���they are   men who can   "take  up their tent and walk" at a moments notice.  A  town so hastily springing into prominence  cannot   be expected to   enjoy the   well-established   law   and order, of older   communities.  Many men swarm in tomakemoney "honestly  if they can-���but   to make  money,"   so   that  when   we   read^ in   the   Brooklyn   News   that  " fines   w-ere $330" and   that " no rolling or  robbing will be tolerated," it  looks as if the  business   end of  justice   has   been    inserted.  Major Harry Cooper is the justice of peace for  Brooktyn,  and those who know him  will sa\r  he is the right man in the right plaoe.     In a  new camp in the Wild and Woolly West rough  characters will be encountered, and if law is to  be respected   it   must   be   enforced.      Major  Cooper   has     seen   service.       He    evidently  realizes   that it is   necessary to  make an   impression upon the lawless element in Brooklyn,  and   when  he   imposed a   cumulative fine   of  $330   for a case of " rolling or robbing"  the  offence is not likety to  be  repeated.     In the  earty days  of British Columbia   the name  of  Sir Matthew Bailie   Begbie wTas a terror to evil  doers, and the name of Major   Cooper will no  doubt   have  a place in the memory  of Brooklynites.  The Ebonomist is please d to observe the  great activity that is being manifested among  Conservatives the past few days in the matter  of organization. All future contests must be  fought on party lines, and the Conservative  part3^ must get its house in order at once.  Lieut-Governor Mclnnis while a senator was  simply one in   a crowTd   whose   influence was  never conspicuous,  but when   by   chance the  man became Lieut-Governor of British Columbia he gained a prominence to which he is not  fairty entitled.      Mr.   Mclnnis ma3r be a very  good average citizen,   and   no   doubt   is,   but  when he is elevated to the position  of lieutenant-governor it is altogether too much for him:  he cannot maintain the dignity of the office.  On the first available   occasion   Mr.   Mclnnis  displays   a   weakness   and   partiality  which  stamp him as the wrong man   in   the wrong  place.       Before   the returns from the county  were in the man with the side-whiskers exercised the little autkorit37 acquired   by  accident  of office and made a muddle of it.     There is no  precedent for the action of the Lieut-Governor.  The country is clearly divided, if we can accept  the ballots marked at the recent election as indicative of public sentiment.     Nineteen constituencies declared in favor of the  Turner   rule  and nineteen ayowTed themselves as for a change  We  are thoroughly   convinced   that   had the  battle to be Tought over again the party which  has brought this province to   its present   prosperity would be reinstated, a    Slanders   of the  vilest character were hurled   against   the premier and his followers, and before these could  be refuted the contest was forced.       So   far as  the Lieut-Governor's  official   knowledge   was  concerned, it was confined   to the   simple   fact  in accordance with   the proclamation   an election had been held.      What the result of that  election had been Lieut-Governor Mclnnis had  no official notification.      He therefore ignored  the trust reposed in him by assuming   the role  of politician and thrusting out the Turner government.       It will now  remain   with  Joseph  Martin to unearth the misdeeds of Mr. Turner  . and his colleagues, and thus repay the debt of  gratitude he owes to the man who has made it  possible for him to hold office.       In the meantime the world stands aghast   at the action of  Lieut-Governor Mclnnis in setting  all known  precedents at naught and trampling the constitution in the dust.  A telegram from Victoria announces that Mr  Semlin is meeting with success in the matter of  cabinet making        He   takes   himself the premier-ship and   the   Lands and   Works   department, while to Mr. C. Cotton he gives the finance portfolio.       Joseph   Martin   is   to be the  attorne3,r general.     For the speakership Messrs  Kellie and Foster are spoken of, but no decision  has as 3ret been   arrived at.       The   provincial  secretaryship and   the   portfolio   of education  will, it is claimed go to one of the island members, and it is probable that Mr. Swrord willbe  made president   of the council   without  portfolio.

The elements of consecration were then  presented and a most interesting ceremony  brought to a close. In the euening there was  a meeting of the local lodge at which the proverbial masonic hospitality was dispensed, and  a most enjo3^able function was brought to a  -close.-. ' .-���������,  ���:: YMIR. -..-y.'':::*:  The  corner stone   of St.  Saviour's  church  .was laid   on  Friday   last.     A more   imposing  ceremon3r has never been witnessed in Nelson  than   that attending   the function.     The   proceedings    were  conducted    03^   the    Masonic  fraternit3r,   Bro.   D.    Wilson,   the   worshipful  master  of the province   being in   attendance.  The   gathering   of  brethren   was   the   largest  ever held   in  the Kootenays ;   ever3' lodge   in  the   district   was   well   represented.      Shortty  after four   o'clock the brethren  formed in procession   and marched from the lodge room to  the scene of operations, where   the3' were met  by Rev. H. Akehurst, the pastor, and congregation of the   church.     To   the   lively   fyrnn  "The   Church     has   one    Foundation,"    the  brethren formed a square on the building, and  the    worshipful   master,    surrounded   b3r   his  officers, at once proceeded with the good wrork  in hand.     A   casket containing   the  following  was dutyr placed in a cavit3r under the foundation   stone, and  the work   having been   duty  tested the   worshipful master   declared it well  and truly laid :     A  copy of the daily Miner of  August 12 ;   a cop3r of the weekty Tribune   of  (Special correspondence to The Economist.)  The Canadian Pacific Exploration, limited,  have three six horse teams steadily hauling  lumber from the siding to the mine. The  erection of the mill has commenced. The  contractor has promised that 60 days from  date the concentrater will be in operation.  There is not an idle man in Ymii. Aaiybne  who wants work can get it, in fact the demand  is greater than the supply.  Mr. V. Carson, our esteemed editor, has  some very rich property in the neighborhood  of the Anaconda mine. He has three men at  work developing the property, and from what  I have heard and seen I think it will turn  out all right.  The British American Corporation is operating in our neighborhood. At present they  are working the Murphy group which they  hold under a boud from the owners. They  are developing a twelve foot lead which is  showing up some fine values.  Messrs. Coryell and Cummings are surveying a waggon road up Wild Horse creek to  the summit.  Judge J. C. Allen left for Winnipeg on  Monday. He will probably be away for about  three months. Mr. Allan1 is ver3* popular  here and his return is looked for by all.  Miss Emity M. Green, our popular school  teacher is back among us again. While at  Kamloops she was successful in obtaining a  second class certificate. On Monda3:r she  opened the school with a good attendance.  Last week Bro. F. Starke\r, D.S.G.P., instituted a White Rose degree of Sons of England in Nelson. There was a large attendance and general congratulations upon the  success attending the lodge, registered as No.  251 Nelson's Queen. Bro. Starke3' was assisted b3r Bros. W. Maguire, E. Sheppard,  Rev. H. S. Akehurst, J. Watson, Crowley  and Harve3a  It is reported from London, Eng., that the  foreign office intends to demand that the Chinese emperor dismiss Li Hung Chang from  power on the ground that he is responsible for  the recent anti-British attitude of the Tsung  Li Yamen.

No part of the   human   countenance engages our attention   so   frequently, as the -eye's.-    When face to  iace in conversation, we do not look  at   the   lips���although,   as   a  rule,  the attention is veiy quickly   taken  at any moment���but at the eyes   of  the    person,  with   whom    we   are  speaking.      In   fact,   one    usually  feels that there is a sense of incompleteness in the association of mind  by means of conversation if there is  not    a   continual    interchange     of  glances, making a kind of running  commentary on the words   spoken.  Now, why is   there   this   continual  meeting of eyes   accompanying"   all  kinds      of     human      intercourse ?  Partly no doubt   it   is   attributable  to certain habits    of comparatively  recent date.      The eye, "the   window of the. soul,", is a more   truth-  fufexponentof the inward thoughts  than the  tongue,   and   seeing   that  speech isye^ frequently  used  not  to tell the ihoughts, but to  conceal  them, we look to the eye for confirmation, or the reverse for what   our  ears are taking: in..

After-dinner coffee cups of silver  are conspicuous among the wedding  presents which are being   showered  upon the brides   to   I.e.      Some   of  these luxuries are of fantastic shape,  fancifulty   chased   and   lined    with  gold ; others are very plain, a   narrow silver heading and stiff, angular  handle being    the  extent   of ornamentation.       Fluted   saucers,    like  shells, are rather pretty,   and   with  these the   cups   have   fluted   ed^es  which look like Elizabethan ruffles.
