THE NATION, of Victoria, B. C,  has been consolidated with. THE  ECONOMIST. All subscribers to  THE NATION will be supplied with  this paper.  EDITORIAL COMMENT.  With scarcely one exception Lieutenant-  Governor Mclnties is condemned for his dismissal of the Turner Government. The newspapers throughout the Dominion unite in execrating the man who has dared to set all  known precedent at naught to gratify his own  political ends, for on no other ground can it  he reasoned out that a man holding such a  responsible position would trifle with the constitution. The belief entertained in certain  quarters that the Lieutenant-Governor is a  conceited ass, and that his dismissal of the  Turner ministry was done to attract attention  to himself, is not, to our mind, borne out by  all the circumstances in the cas". Indeed,  subsequent events induce the belief that  Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes is much more  of a knave than fool. There appears to be  only one door open to the man who has so  wilfully degraded the office to which he was  appointed, and that is to retire and administer his pills and squills to suffering patients.  British Columbia does not want quacks in the  gubernatorial chair.  A great deal is heard from time to time  about mother-lodes, and many practical  miners appear to have implicit confidence in  the theory that  physiological  principles gov  ern the formation of ores. It ha* grown to be  a popular superstition in almostevery mining  district that somewhere in the locality a  mother-lode can be foilnd, compared wi 1 h  which all other lodes aie ��s nothing. The  WesUra Mining World, of Butte, Mout., tries  t ) remove this prevailing impression which it  holds to be erroneous, and says that as a matter of fact there is no such thins: as a rnother-  lode, unless at some great depth in the bo we s  of the earth a number of veins carrying similar classes of ore run together into a common  body. But a mother-lodj, if entitled to that  name, never come.- to the surface. S >me veins  are larger than other-, but there is no parentage implied in thai fact. It is merely the  circumstance o a large fi-sure in the rocks  .'.'filling Hi) with veitious mitier and ore.  Tin u-ands u pon thousands of d -11ars have  been squirp'ercd by men in search of some  great parental lode. This is one of the mor-t  prominent features of a placer district. In  the Klondike country promoters talk glibly  ah -tit the mother-lode, as if a rich placer  necessarily meant the existence of some lode  that had mothered the deposits without impairing her own productive powers.  The visit of Hon. Geo. Foster to British  Columbia has revived intere-t in Federal politics. The honorable gentleman's expose of  Grit hypocrisy and incompetency was convincing, and had the effect of solidifying the  Conservative party in this province. So far  as British Columbia is concerned it does not  require a prophet to foretell the result of the  next general election. We have had quite  enough of Liberal rule in this province. But  organization will be necessary to secure the  desired result. In this connection, it is pleasing to announce that during the past week a  very decided step has been taken in the direction of organizing the Conservatiues. The  men who have the matter in hand are determined to contribute their share towards the  overthrow of the Liberal party.  The Le Roi mine troubles appear every day  to become more complicated. Notice has been  served upon the British America Corporation of a restraining order issued by Judge  Richardson, of Spokane, enjoining the corporation from purchasing a majorit}' of the  Le Roi stock, but as the B. A. C. is incorpor  ated outside the jurisdiction of the Washington court, it is not likely that any attention  will be paid  to  the  order.    As  matters  now  stand Mr. Carlyle has control of the property  as receiver, and as he is an official of the  B. A. C. it may be said that the corporation is  in possession. He is not shipping to the company's smelter at Northpor:., because ore thus  shipped would pass out of the jurisdiction of  the courts of British Columbia. So far the  B. A; C. appears to have got the best of it���  they have the mine, while the faction opposing the sale are responsible for the salaries of  the officials. The courts of British Columbia  and those of Washington cannot agree, and  the o ders of the one are ignored by the  other. What the ultimate effect will be it is  difficult to determine, but there is one thing  certain, that the trouble over the property is  hurtinu: the mining interests generally of this  country. It looks as if the dividends will be  swal lo wed up in 1 itigation.  Edgar P. Rathbourne, late inspector of  mines toc the Transvaal government, has  returned to British Columbia from an extended  trip to E lgland. Interviewed at Rowland  the other day. Mi. Rathbourne expressed himself as in favor of state aid to mining. He  would favor the adoption of a plan whereby a  substantial bonus would be given to prospectors finding valuable mineral deposits.  We have always heen in favor of giving the  pro pector every protection ami encouragement, but to give him a bonus would perhaps  be going a step too far. The man who locates  a re illy good property has seldom any trouble  in disposing of it.  So we are to have a commission to devise a  scheme of defence for Canada. We hope  Mayor Houston will see to it that Nelson is  provided with defenses against the insurgents  from Kaslo, Ainsworth and other outlying  points.  A person named Hotrum has been fired out  of the Hamilton custom house by Hon. Mr.  Patterson. An exchange regards this as the  initial step in the direction of prohibition.  Everything considered, the question natu-  r��Uy suggests itself why was J. M. Kellie overlooked for the portfolio of Education ? Tpie  Economist is free to confers that it harbored  the hope of being able to chronicle the appointment of Hon. J. M. Kellie as Minister of  Education. The silver-tongued orator of the  Kootenays is known far and near as a profound   etii.-lept,   a   depp thinker,   a   polished THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  scholar and withal a devoted friend of education. During the late campaign, Mr. Kellie's  frequent and copious quotations from the  classics, evidenced the .depth, breadth and  quality of his learning. Indeed, it seemed as  if Demosthenes had escaped from his sarcophagus, when Mr. Kellie ascended the rostrum. Were we so inclined and had the  space at our disposal, we could advance the  most cogent reasons why Mr. Kellie should  have been appointed to this important office.  Did he not coin.that most chaste and classic  expression, "Let 'er flicker " ? Therefore, we  ask, why was this gentleman denied the opportunity of overhauling our public school  system. Unless this question hs satisfactorily  answered, there will exist a deep-rooted belief  that in this Province virtue and merit pass  unrewarded.  The refusal of Mr. Hugh John Macdonald  to preside at a dinner tendered to Lord Aberdeen by the Manitoba Club will be heartily  endorsed by thousands of Canadians. The  present Governor-General of Canada infused  politics into the conduct of office, and as an  result when 'he leaves this country, his departure will hot be regretted. If he could take his  pupil, Lieut-Governor Mclnnis, with him, his  departure would be hailed with delight. All  honor to Hugh John Macdonald.  . The calm, deliberative eloquence of Hon.  Fred. Hume will in future illumine the halls  of the Legislature as Minister of Mines. Mr.  Hume was sworn in Saturday, and in due  course of time will come back to his constituents for re-election. It is unnecessary to  speak of Mr. Hume's transcendaut genius.  Better try to paint tire lily white than attempt  to add one measure to the oratorical stature of  the gentleman who will pack around the portfolio of Minister of Mines for a brief season at  least.  During the past couple of months the travel  over the different railway and steamship systems touching at Nelson has been exceptionally large. It is pleasing to riote that a big  percentage of the passenger traffic was of the  tourist class. We have had the pleasure of  meeting with many of the sightseers, and  each and every one express their delight at  the immensity and grandeur of the scenery.  It is a revelation to all to find such great  sheets of water and such abundant foliage at  this altitude, and those who have taken-in  the trip this year will no doubt return again  or induce their friends to visit our grand  country. Every effort should be made to  encourage the tourist trade.  Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M P., is not by any  stretch of imagination a ferocious looking  man, but appearances are sometimes deceitful.  Mr. Bostock has unlimited wealth at his command, and if, as alleged, he is using his  money as a means of gaining that political  prominence which his brains would never secure him, he becomes a very dangerous person  indeed.    If, as a certain employee  of  Bostock  has boasted, Joseph Martin was promised the  leadership of the then Opposition party when  that gentleman consented to enter Provincial  politics, Bostock may be justly regarded as a  political boss. Here, in his own constituency,  the ambitious "Boss " is treated as a huge  joke, but in some other places this latest factor in British Columbia affairs is regarded as a  menace to the well being of society and a clog  on the wheel of, legitimate progress.  The announcement* some diys ago, that  the Indian mints were shortly to be re-opened  to free coinage of silver has not been confirmed from reliable sources. It was stated  that the ratio was to be changed from 16 to 1  to 22 to 1. This ratio would make silver  worth about \)0 cents.  Joe Martin may be what is known as a  hot number, but it's dollars^ to doughnuts  that he will not melt snow in British  Columbia.  f Rejoice ! Let all the people rejoice 1 We  read in the Rossland Times of Saturday last  ���and that paper is a curiosity���that " next  week (D.V. as religionists say) I-"hope to give  the Nelson district a leg up." The importance  of this announcement cannot be over-estimated  When we get the '* I "of the Rossland Times  among us the most sceptic must banish their  scepticism ; for who is, or who am " I ?" The  first person singular of the Times devotes, the  whole of that once very readable sheet to proving that he is a veritable oracle. A few selec-  tione taken at random from our erratic Rossland contemporary- will serve to show who I  was, who. J is, who/ am, and who /would be :  " Last week I ran our readers through Scotland,  Wales, and Ireland," etc.  We did not take the trip alluded to, but  tender our commiseration to those who did.  " Years ago, I tried to show the English  nation  \    ...    that the laws of primogeniture  and  entail must inevitably ruin the business of existence.''  This was one of the many great tasks undertaken by Ion behalf of the English nation,  and it is pleasing to note that I is willing to  do good service for this western .hemisphere,  and even condescends to give Nelson a leg-up.  Unfortunately the English nation did not take  the advice of /, and mark the consequence :  " Now that my words have come true, I find the  mischief has called forth no fresh legislation, and  as a consequence London seems doomed, agriculture finished."  It serves London right, for what   else could  the great   metropolis of   the world   expect for  ignoring the advice   of / ?      / is  now  in the  newspaper bu-iness in Rossland,   but we may  infer that he has been in the hog trade, for we  read :  " In America J have fed my hogs on what in  England we would consider luxuries."  / does not inform us what particular  luxuries his hogs were most familiar with, but  the menu was no doubt choice. I saw them  fed uoon peaches���not the people of England,  but Fs hogs. But then, according to I, " in  the United Kingdom ignorance is paramount."  We are not told that this lamentable condition  has developed since J left, carrying with him  to this new world his concentrated wisdom.  Let us, thenj rejoice that J is coming to Nelson  to give vis a "leg-up." He is the greatest living prophet and mining expert, this first person singular, or singular first person of the  Rossland Times.  u Haven't I told you fifty times that British Columbia is all gold ? Solid 18 carat at the top and  richer as you go below."  If Ps eyes could only see  him as other eyes  see him, he would stop this egotistical, fulsome  gush..";  The meeting of the Semlin-CottonYMartio  nartv on the 26th should not be lacking in  political fireworksr Semlin is how leader, but  Martin will make an effort to dethrone him.  It remains to be seen if Bostock and his  money will be able to secure the coveted prize  ���for Martin."'.     ' '';VP, -.':?'\:-������'���'������  The citizens of Nelson are called upon to  utilize electric light and water. It now appears that the supply of water is limited. Up  to the present there has been no shortage for  domestie purposes ; but it is evident, if the  water is to be used as power, a greater supply  than that now available will have to be secured  Some time ago 'an agreement appears to have  been entered into with the Hall Mines for such  a supply a'o' a six-inch pipe would carry. But  this was before the transfer of the electric light  plant and franchise to the city at a cost of  $35,400 with etceteras. A month has not  elapsed, and the public are informed that there  is not a sufficient force of water to develop the  necessary force to keep the machinery in full  operation, and hence the light is defective. It  is a pity this discovery was not made before  the transfer took place. It is now proposed  to build another reservoir in which to store  water for the electric light works. ,. This will  no doubt be do ie, and then the further dis-.  covery will be made that the water power is  too great for the present plant and more powerful and more modern machinery will become  a necessity. Then the people of Nelson will  be asking themselves what they got for their  $35,400.   Another accused murderer lies awaiting  his trial in Nelson gaol. He is an Italian  named Bruino, arrested some ten days ago  near Goat River Landing on the charge of  having caused the death of a fellow-countryman. Both the alleged murderer and his victim are of the laboring class, and the weapon  used was a revolver. Italians, in their own  country, do not, as a rule, carry firearms���  cold steel is their choice for the offensive or  defensive; but in this country they appear to  take to the revolver, and to use it upon the  slightest provocation. We have on many  occasions pointed out the necessity of searching characters of this class, and when concealed weapons are found upon them to  impose the heaviest penalty the law will  allow. With few exceptions the Italian navvies carry revolvers. They should be taught  that  this   is  illegal  as  well as unnecessary. ���i��arj��ti*;&&s) \Mii&iZ  J;i��.aDia>^.nrrTt%rniiCT(rfattaaua��*uaiflaja  THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  With firearms in his possession the average  Pago becomes a very objectionable and dangerous individual, and if a closer watch be  not kept upon them during railway construction in this vicinity the sooner the gallows be  permanently fixed in the gaol yard the better.  From tie evidence adduced at the preliminary investigation held at Moyie City the other  day, it looks as if Bruino will pay the death  penalty.        .  The London Times says that if America is  prepared to undertake the responsibility of the  whole Philippine group, it is hard to see how  any other power could legitimately interfere.  The annexation of tV islands is not an unpopular cry just at pre at, but it may be later  on. Big possessions involve big responsibilities. Already Americans are beginning to  figure on the cost of maintaining the islands  and the advantages to be gained by annexation. It is contended that the coloured population of the South could be induced to migrate  to the Philippines, thus opening up the South  to the relief of the con jested sections of the  North. If annexation would have this effect,  it will be welcomed.  An English   lady,   writing   to   the London  Daily Mail from Seattle, advises everyone going  to the gold fields of  the North   to  start  from  Seattle in preference to Vancouver or Victoria,  and suggests   that outfitting   be also done at  Seattle, as the cheapest port. The B.C Review,  London, Eng., in dealing with the letter, says:  " The writer must he entirely ignorant of the  lower prices which  are asked   in Victoria   for  the same kind of goods as sold in  Seattle, or  else she has foolishly believed everything told  her by Messrs. Duffin & Carson,   who are naturally prejudiced, and have cleverly obtained  a good puffin the letter of this confiding ladj^.  Robert Ward, for many years president of the  B. C. Board of Trade, replying   to   this letter,  points out that goods purchased in Seattle will  pay a duty of 30 per cent on   entering Canadian territory.      He also emphatically   states  that both   Victoria and   Vancouver   offer far  superior advantages to  intending Klondikers.  As Mr. Ward is in a position to speak authoritatively on this subject from his long acquaintance with the province, his sound advice should  be accepted."  Sir Henry Irving made some particularly  amiable remarks about newspapers at the  recent anniversary dinner of the Newspaper  Press Fund in London. " In a newspaper,"  he said, " at a glance you are in touch with  the elemental forces of nature, war, pestilence,  and famine; you are transported by this  printed sheet, as if it were the fairy carpet of  the Arabian, from capital to capital, from the  exultation of the one people to the bitter  resentment and chagrin of another. You  behold on every scale every quality of humanity, everything that piques the sense of mystery, everything that inspires pity, dread or  anger. It is a vast and ever-changing panorama of the raw material of art and literature.  Well, there are some complaints, gentlemen,  that the raw material is more generally inter  esting than the artistic product. The newspaper is a dangerous competitor of books, and  those of us who write plays and produce them  may wish that the circulation of a great daily  journal would repeat itself at the box office.  But it is no use protesting against rivalry, if it  be the rivalry of life, and the gentlemen of the  press who are engaged in stage managing a  drama which, after all, is the real article, must  always command more spectators than the  humble artists who seek truth in the garb of  illusion."  Without openly declaring itself to be a  champion of peace, which would be considered  unpatriotic in face of the present feeling  among the majority of Spaniard.*, the Ministerial journal Correocalls attention to the  injury which the war is doing to the trade and  industry of Spain, especially in Catalonia,  where many factories have already been  closed, and others are working half-time. The  wealthy classes, the article says, are charitably helping the unemployed, but sorely  against the will of the Catalans, who prefer  work to receiving alms. The journal also  points out the consequences of the Government's decision to pay the interest on the  redemption of Cuban bonds in pesetas, and to  make the interest on the External Debt also  payable in pesetas unless the bonds are held  by foreigners. This measure, the Correo maintains, although advantageous to the Exchequer  >for the present, is considered by financial men  to militate against the financial credit, leaving no sources of revenue for the Treasury  except an increase of taxation.  It is regarded as rather a curious coincidence that the dismissal of the Turner Government followed clo-ely the visit of Liberal  Organizer Smith to Victoria.  When Mr. Sifton became Minister of the  Interior he promised to settle the Northwest  with the best class of farmers. So far Mr  Sifton's high-class farmers amount to a couple  of thousand Galicians, who are now living in  caves in the neighborhood of Edmonton. The  men are thriftless and the women do not even  appear to have heard the adage that virtue is  its own reward. An Edmonton paper says  that the Galicians who arrived there this season too late to plant even potatoes will need  governmeut aid next season.  Speaking of the influence of Mr. Bosttock  in British Columbia politics the Kamloops  Standard says : If you find a man that is  suddenly disinterested, that loves his neighbour better than himself, whose virtuous * indignation rises up against everyone that has  different ideas to his own, who in the interests  of cleanliness throws dirt, in his hatred of  corruption uses briber}7, whose mouth is full  of fair promises and pleasant words but in  whose heart is the cancerous hatred of those  who are not under his heel and contempt for  such as are, put him down as a Bostocrat.  The world cannot be regenerated in a day, the  supreme power of one man is as  bad   as   that  of another. Men with a few faults are more  lovable, and a little of the milk of human  kindness is more refreshing than the dry  bones of hypocrisy. British Columbia will  no doubt soon see the serpent she is fostering  in her bosom and then Bostocracy will be  ended and the people will manage their own  affairs their own way."  As an evidence of the progress Nelson has  made in a few years, it might be mentioned  that we can now indulge in the luxury of a  prize-fight without going away from home.  The navy is proverbially conservative, and  in no direction does it show its conservatism  more pronouncedly than in the victualling  question. The regulations that govern the  food supply of the navy date back many years  in spite of the different conditions that exist  to-day. . . . The days are long past when  the seaman was content to live upon the Government ration eked out when in harbor by  such luxuries as the bunaboat woman could  provide. We do not imply that the daily  ration is not ample and good too, for it is  both ; but in these days of cheap and excellent  canned foods for use at sea, and many opportunities of obtaining butter, fl >ur, potatoes,  &c, in harbor, it is not reasonable to expect  the men to be content to do without them. It  is not within our province to suggest a remedy, though two very apparent one3 might be  mentioned :���-(1) Patting the whole thing in  the hands of one or other of the big firms that  cater for canteens, letting them provide their  own manager and servers, and making them  pay a certain rent for the favor. This plan  has been tried successfully already, although  it was, of course, unsanctioned by the regulations. (2) The taking over by the Government of the whole concern and placing it in  the hands of the paymaster and his staff.  This latter plan appears to us to be by far the  simplest remedy. The present troubles and  abuses would cease to exist ; the seaman would  get their food cheaper and better, while the  Victualling Department of the navy would  make a very handsome profit instead of allowing it to go as at present, into the pockets of  private firms.  It is rather an unfortunate circumstance  that His Worship the Mayor couldn't leave  the city for a few days without men losing  their heads and indulging in unseemly prize  fights.  Earl Brovvnlow in a speech at a Primrose  League meeting in England gave the following  definition of what constitutes a Tory. To  secure the rights of property to rich and poor  alike, to secure evenhanded justice to all her  Majesty's subjects in all parts of the world,  whatever might be their color, race or religion ;  to defend the honor of the English flag where-  everit floated , and to help to assist and encourage all those who might be low down on  the rungs of the ladder to ascend to the highest point���in a word, the Conservative policy  is to level up and not to level down."  ���������_, _ ^"~^^ THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  BRIAN BORUc  2*emo"7ii3 Iizvoims Lececsit,  I shall never'forget mjr introduction to him.  I had  anticipated it  for many months,   had  even rehearsed it countless times. Then   when  the great moment arrived I collapsed and conducted myself in a'manne'r quite contrary  to  winning his   approval or making a  good impression.     He  arrived  one   morning  after  a  long fatiguing-journey and   a: member of the  household came running breathlessly to inform  me of his  arrival   and  that  he  was  awaiting  my presence down stairs.    I hastened without  any forethought  of  my toilet  or  appearance,  while my heart beat tumultuously and my heels  sounded like a trip hammer on the steel stair  rods.    I must have .been about midway in my  "descent when I came to a dead halt, for  there  in the   haJJ'way  stood  the  ideaT of my  long-'  dreamt dreams !     But my'���'������eyes,  blurred,  my  blood froze, my brain  reeled   and '--my. tongue  clung like a leech to the roof of my mouth.    I  was on the verge of screaming, or  immediate  flight, when his companion came forward  and  made the conventional presentation.     With  a,  strenuous effort I acknowledged it but made no  further overtures, nor did I attempt to resume  my interrupted trip down  the  stairway.   The  gaze of each was concentrated upon the other.  In that brief hesitation   I  scanned   the  whole  physique of he  who  formed  my  childhood's  ideal of his race, which   even   in   my   maturer  years lost not one iota of idealization.      There  he stood, just as I had often  pictured   him,   a  perfect, flawless specimen.     The  desire of my  heart was fully  rea 1 ized,  yet  I eouId not  ap-  proach him.    I saw howeverthe terror was not  mutual,     so   -courting    an   outward    air    of  bravery.I induced   my  semi-paralized   legs  to  convey..me d��wn the remaining st^ps to extend  to'him the welcome I kneiv he-stood anxiously  awaiting.      That he was'sensitive I knew just  as I knew he was well bred.    How exquisitely  perfect  he looked.      His   mein 'haughty  and  m ijestic.    His toilet scrupulous. Trie toss and  twist of his impatient .frame  showed   me  how  desirous: he wps for me to advance and improve  our a,cquai)itance.     But those eves!  How they  entranced me ! I could not help thinking how  they would have redeemed the plainest  countenance.    They were   the  most,  p'ea.ding  and  eloquent I ever saw in  any   living   head:  and  how they beamed wi h wonder and inquiry as  I slowly advanced with obvious trepidation in  my g lit and incoherently uttered the welcome  common civility demanded of me     Still holding his gaze I cautious!}' extend my hand, hut  he  scorning   such   conventionalism   bounded  towards me   growing  boldly effusive,   winding  his   strong   arms   around    my     neck,  nearlj7  smothering  me   with   kisses  and   talking the  while in a peculiarly foriegn   tongue  which  I  interpreted   as terms of endearment.     Over-  v hnlmed as I was and shocked, as   the household appare-ifly were my terror vanished  and  sinking into the hall seat I gathered him  into  my warmest  embrace  and   fully   reciprocated  his   every   caress.      Our   compact   of   eternal  devotion was sealed irrevocably then and there.  In twenty-four hours   he   had   won   my   heart  and was duly recognized king of the domneile  having a retinue of worshipping suhji ots.   But  his reign though glorious was brief  and   it  is  with  most  poignant  regret I  record   his   untimely fate and noble end.  Perhaps it would be better ere I proceed  with my narrative to disclose his identity.  .My adored and lamented hero was a bull-dog,  'lie truest type of old British bull-dog ever  bred. He came of a long line of cerulean hued  progenitors and reflected great credit upon  their achievements  Brindle and white his markings with a  broad, flat, square skull that together with his  dog poisoned.. " But what have you in that  bag?" I asked, glad to change the subject, as I  caught sight of a little sack just about the  size of a common salt bag made of duck or  drill and it seemed to he solidly packed. " Oh!  I know" as if I had a sudden inspiration, "its  periwinkles. Where ever did you get them?  What a treat, I haven't tasted one for years."  We had often got them in our eastern home  off the Atlantic ships. " Call them periwinkles if you like " he responded holding the  sack high above his head as I in my eagerness  had darted like mad to investigate its contents,  "but hurry sister mine and lets sample some  of them."    Quickly we entered the house pass-  face was wrinkled like the ragged petals  of a  chrysanthemum.     Muzzle black as jet.    Ears  evenly  matched and   neatly "buttoned  up."  Nose abbreviated to a  most ludicrous  formation.     Square   massive   lower   jaw   with  two  ivory  white incisors 'protruding and  curling '  up oyer the curtailed upper lip.     The  latter  : were of no earthly use   to   him,  but added   to  his peculiar style of beauty and  were .greatly  admired and prized by me.    They often played  an import int part at tho bench show  and  at  "all, times lent a ferociousness   to  his  always  forbidding   appearance        His    brindle    coat  enveloped the strong shoulders down oyer the  well " roached " back.and .neatly '" tucked up "  lions on to the tip of his rat-like tail   with  its  little "kink " in   the  end.    A  large collar of  white encircled the herculean heck and throat  like avcape of ermine extending down oyer the  muscular chest and   buwed .'.c-hippe.nd.ale table  shaped legs. <  He was an animal to call forth naught but  pra ise and meri t from the m ost fastidious":'  judge or fancier. Many were the visitors who  flocked to see him for days after his arrival  and he was the proud recipient of numerous  compliments and words of commendation. All  w ho m ade h is acq ua i n t a nee 1 o'ved hi m, but  those who viewed him only from the fence  were so filled with aw e and terror that a second  look was seldom ever indulged in. His senses  were alarmingly acute and he conceived the  keenest aversion to people poorly and i 11 clad  One summer 'evening  in  the  long   twilight  peculiar to the far  west  I  hud   gone'- down  to  the gate   and -looked   down   the  clusty, silent  road in quest of rny brother who was over due  for dinner, when suddenly the veriest tramp in  the   kingdom   acco-ted    me    and    demanded  money.     Nervously   I   hade   him   begone and  then gave a signal that brought   Brian   to   my  side in a flying bound.     His quick eye sought  out   the   vagrant,  in   his   unkempt   attire  and  evil   countenance   which   aroused    his    anger  jalm^st   to  frenzy,   and he   would   have   dealt  roughly enough with bin) had I not succeeded  in ��� panially. subduing   him.     The man   then  launched out  into   a   string of oaths,   obscene  langua.e,  ahusive   vendictive,  then   vanished  into the gathering gloom   as  phan!om-li'ke  a^ .  his approach.     Down.the ro>\<\  I   saw   a   horse  and carriage slowly weudi-ig is way and soon  discerned one of its   two   occupants, to  be  my  tardy  brother.      The   vehicle   stopper at  the  crossroads and I heard   the men   exchange a  cheery good night, t hen   I   unlatched the  gate  and with my hand still firm on B.ian's collar  we flew down the path   where  we  soon  joined  my hrother  to   whom  I   speedily   related   my  disagreeable expe? ience.  " Whyididn't von turn the dog loose on him1'  he asked. "Oh!" I replied " I could h;-r ily do  that unless he had made an attack 'or used  any violence, bfS'des you know what it would  have meant if Brian once got hold of him and  I do hate the sight of blood so. However lam  glad you are here as he did look so wicked  and swore all sorts of vengeance upon poor  Brian's head, and it would not surprise me a  bit to come down   some  morning   to   find   the  ing on into the lighted dinning room where I  procured  the carver and hastened to disembowel the bag.    My brother did the necessary  with his pocket knife and tumbled   the supposed delecacies on the table  and stood  back  toawait .my verdict.    Much to my surprise it  proved a rarer sight  than  the little tid-bits  from the sea.    There in a glittering heap lay  what   seemed   to   me  millions   of  gold   coin. ;  " Alercy !"  I  gasped.      What  is   it ?      What  does it mean ?       Where did you get them?"  " It's the money for; the. mine" he explained  " I was paid today."     ''Then  why on  earth  didn't youbank it or lock it up?    Ohi we will  all be killed in our beds  tonight  and  robbed.  Let's hitch up the pony and  drive into   town  and,put it in the safe at  the office* anywhere,  any place  but here, and   that- horrid  tramp  around tonight too.    Oh, it was so foolish to  have brought it home "and I nearly sank  to  the floor in my fears.'  " Gently,   gently"    soothingly     adds     he,  am used'at my plight.    "No  one  knows  of  it  being in the house, very few know I've  made  .the deal with the  exception  of the old priest  ���i who drove me home. He met me just as I was  leaving the office and as he was  passing  near "  here offered me a lift as far as   the crossroads.  You saw us didn't you,: you heard me bid him  good night?"    "Oh! I don't mind old   Father  Willard knowing, but  why did  you  not  ask  him to take care of ittonight for you? I really  think it unwise to keep such a sum of money  in the house with  so  many  tramps  hanging  around and a burglary happening some place  every night.     A railroad   town is rsuhjected to  these  plagues  especially  in  their  infancy  as  this   settlement   is."     "Well"   he   answered  assuringly  '"they never have bothered us yet  and  I'll   wager that   tramp  will   never come  'back after once having seen Brian.    It's only  a partial payment anyhow , besides I was too  late for the bank this afternoon but tomorrow  I'll find a place of safety for it, so   vanish  all  3rour fears for. I mean to he merry tonight."  But I recused to be comforted. Weatedinner  in apparent gle^, planning a trip to California  in the autumn and various other jaunts upon  the first proceeds of our new venture. The  even nj; passed in music, cards, conversation ;  ���but how I was haunted in a series of black  masks, bulls eye lanterns and the household  steeped in gore ere the morrow ! I resolved to  be up betimes and harness the pony, drive  down to the bank and wait at its entrance  until its doors were open even should we be  the first patrons. I would get this awful burden  off my mind.  About eleven  we  relired   after having  seen  Brian out to his accustomed bunk in the stable  for next to his devotion to me came the pony.  He even   deserted   his comfortable   kennel   to  sleep on Neddie's straw.   With strictest injunctions to "watch the house " " be a, good  dog "  and a good night pat  on  Neddie's  flank   and  the   faithful  dog's   head   we   hurried   upstairs  with the golden treasure where  I concealed  it  in the most unlikely place I could think of to  escape detection.    The fickle  god  of slumber  refused to  he wooed,   at  least  by  me,   and  it  must have been away in  the   wee sma'  hours  when   I   at   last   dozed    only    to    be    rudely  awakened by the small house uoor;:, furious and  terrified backing.     Half  asleep  we  formed   a  procession and hastened down  stairs  into  the  kitchen finding nothing there more formidable  than the open door which   we   finally decided  after all our precaution had not been  securely  fastened.  Bent upon further satisfaction we went into  the yard, but all search fruitless. Being unshod  none of us ventured across the garden, but we  listened intently for some sounds of defence  from the stable, but " all's quiet along the Potomac  tonight "  we   ejaculated,   quoting   our  i *> J "J**" ���***�� **jsrfet Ai ��Vj*. -vilurM.^ P H ������ ��.***���*>�����*. i ** ijnfrti vmM "> rf*a  THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  fayorite phrase. Then concluding the puggies  had been startled by some of the many trivial  night sounds we wended our way bedwards  with one more peep at the golden hoard, then  to bed to toss and conjecture until dawn.  With the first streaks of approaching day I  arose. Dressing hurriedly I went down and  into the yard, eager to exchange the usual  greetings with the inmates of the stable, but  imagine my consternation to find the door  yawning wide, the carriage door leading into  the lane wrenched from its hinges and lock  broken and devastation apparent at every  turn. "Brian! Brian darling," I called, but  no sound of life seemed stirring within. Then  came a few impatient stamps from the pony  followed by a low wail of some thing in anguish. I sprang across the thre-hold of the open  door and there a sight met my gaze that cau-ed  me to scream aloud. Stretched on the floor in  an inanimate heap lay my pride, my pet,  bruised and weltering in his life's blood with  skull smashed and bleeding and a great gaping Woundoi his forehead. I dropped on my  knees at his side raising his wounded head  into my lap while those great humid eyes  looked volumes into mine. Yet I was too ignorant to fathom their meaning.  My brother came running at my cries of  alarm and joined in my woe.  ���" What awful thing has been done here" he  cried. " Oh that h ��rrid tramp" was all I could  articulate, then my grief burst out anew when  I discovered his two little teeth were gone.  Barely conscious we tenderly bore him into  the house, treading oh so carefully ere we, shook  the impromptu pallet for blood spurted from  every incision. Procuring the aid of a skilled  veterinary he gave us but poor consolation  shaking his head ruefully saving:  "lam afraid he won't be a dog to you very  long." He lingered, however, for five days  clinging with the proverbial tenacity to the  faintest spark of life. But it ebbed out at last;  he died in my arms without a murmur, just  one more lo>k from those grand old eyes and  Brian Boru was no more.  It would appear almost childish to enter into detail of those last sad rites and the affectionate manner in which they were conducted,  but I am not ashamed to admit it was hard to  go on with life again now that one bright spot  had been wiped into oblivion. But his death  left a void in my life nothing yet has come to  fill  How I loathed his destroyer and what vengeance I called down upon his luckless head.  What bitter foe could that intelligent, faithful beast have earned in his short and  happy  career?  *        *���       * * ���*  It had been my custom to once each week  walk over to the Catholic hospital and carry  magazines and papers to the sisters to distribute amongst the patients. Not wishing to  neglect this charitable practise and with the  sod of my poor pet's grave still fresh on my  hands, I started late in the afternoon with my  weekly bundle thinking perhaps to in part  forget my grief at the sight of others' woe.  Reaching the building I mounted the steps and  rang the bell. Awaiting some minutes for a  response to my summons and no one seeming  to answer it I entered the half-open door and  deposited my burden upon a hall table and  turned to depart as the fumes of an odious  anaesthetic filled my nostrils almost choking  me, when one of the sisters came down the  corridor out of the operating room advancing  towards me with unmistakeable traces of agitation on her pure little face, at the same time  saying through her sobs as she recognized me:  " Ohl we have had such a sad death here  today." "Yes?" I queried "who was it pray?"  " Some one whom we have all loved so dearly.  Come and see," she implored "come and see.  He suffered so dreadfully, but all is over now  and death has wrought such a wonderful  change. He is to be buried from our chapel  here tomorrow." We had now reached a room  adjacent to the operating theater and were  about to enter when I paused upon its thresh-  hold and asked cautiously: "Anything infectious?" " Oh no '."she assured me, "It was  the effects of an accident which necessitated  an .operation and" lowering her voice " he  never came out of the ether." We now  approached the white covered bier and raising  the Cloth from the silent, recumbent figure, I  gazed thunder struck upon the .holy., saint-like  familiar  face of  Father  Willard,   the parish  .priest;';. ;.��� '.;���/ ��� . ������';..,  .  How sorry I was as ! I looked .down, at the  peaceful features of one who had been so universally beloved. How the poor and conscience stricken would miss their benefactor  and counsellor. With genuine grief I turned  tearfully away saying: " However did it happen?" Standing in the dread silence and  gather ng bloomshe sorrow fully continued :  "Late last Monday night he was called to a  mill some distance out to attend a man who  had been injured fat lly that afternoon. Being  of our faith he was anxious to confess and  receive the last sacrament. It was very dark  when poor Father returned and he mistook  his way getting into the bushes, his horse took  fright and bolted; throwing Father out and  dragging him over the stumps and fallen timber. His shoulder was badly splintered and  lacerated. In an almost fainting condition  he reached here early Tuesday morning where  Dr. Keane dreused and bound his woundj. He  was making very desirable progress from this  however when a painful swelling set in in his  throat. This caused the operation to probe to  the seat of inflammation. This was done this  morning. " Wei I.. "..I asked as she paused to  dry her tears " what was the result,���did they  discover anything?". "Oh it must have been  an old trouble dating from his infancy, but it  was the mo.-t peculiar case, and you know we  run across them nearly eve.ry day here Two  tiny teeth, small as an infant's, were found  embedded near the larynx and"���but I heard  no more, as the horror there must have been  depicted on my face was reflected in hers. I  flew to the stretcher and rudely snatched off  the face cloth, gazing not this time on the  saintly countenance of the much revered priest  but on the ghastly, sinful visage of poor  Brian's assassin, and the little mottoengraved  around my dead pet's collar swam before my  eyes like letters of fire:  "No one injures me with impunity."  Hours interminable seemed to elapse ere I  again realized my every day self. Then I was  slowly descending the hospital steps my  brother at my side saying:  "It was growing late and knowing how  nerv< u-�� you are I came to walk home with  you. How very sad about dear old Father  Wdlard. But hark, isn't that music and singing I hear?"  The little sister who followed in our wake  now spoke for the first time since my peculiar  behaviour indoors at her unsuspected denou-  ment, saying: " Its the sisters in the convent  yonder practising Father Willard's requeim."  " Poor fellow " he added "may he rest in  peace." " Yes poor felow " I echoed from the  bitterness of my heart " may he rest in peace."  But of course I meant the dog.  E. M. MacNaughtun.  Vancouver, B. C. ���  THE COLORS OF THE FLAG.  The " Forest Lovers," by Maurice Hewlett,  published by the Macmillan Company, has  gone into its second edition, just three weeks  after its first appearance.  What is the blue on our flag, boys ?  The waves of the boundless sea,  Where our vessels ride in their tameless pride  And the feet of the winds are free ;  From the sun and smiles of the coral isles  To the ice of the South and North.  With dauntless tread through tempests dread  The guardian ships go forth. ��  What is the white on our Hag, boys?  The honor of our land,     &  Which burns in our sight like a beacon light,  And stands while the hills shall stand ;  Yea, dearer than fame is our land's great name,  And we right, wherever we be,  , For the mothers and wives that pray  for the  lives  Of the brave hearts over the sea.  What is the red on our flag, boys ?  The blood of our heroes slain,  On the burning sands in the wild waste lauds  And the froth of the purple main ;  And it cries to God from the crimsoned sod  And the crest of the waves outrolled  That he send us men to right again  ���'���.As'our fathers fought of old.  We'll stand by the dear old flag, boys ?  Whatever be said or done,  Though the shots come fast, as we face the blast,  And the foe be ten to one :���  Though our only reward be a thrust of a sword  And a bullet in heart and brain,  What matters one gone, if the flag float on  And Britain be Lord of the main.  ���Frederick George Scotfc.  Lord Ashbourne is reported in London tobe  engaged in Writing a "Life, of Pitt," which  with contain much important matter hitherto  unpublished, including several original letters.  The Macmillan Company will shortly introduce a new English poet to American readers.  His name is Charles Camp Tarelli, and his  book    is    entitled   " Perbephone    and    Other  Poems "  Thomas H irdy has almost completed another of the marvellous stories of Wessex life,  with which he has sp long been identified. He  is also said to be collecting a number of his  shorter tales for republication in book form.  They will be more welcome than his " Jude,  the Obscure " kind of work.  The pre-ent Baron Tauchnitz is said to be  like his father, a man of letters first, and a  man of business afterward. It is not every  so-called "successful" novel that finds a place  in the famous library. The firm now employs  a thousand workmen, and, although Lfipsic  is a centre of S icialism, no strike or disturbance ha- ever occurred in this great publishing  house.  The order of baronets grew out of the rebellion in Ulster. When created, each baronet  had to pay as much as would maintain thirty  soldiers three years at 8 pence a day. As a  historical memorial of their original service  the baronets bear as an augmentation to their  coats of arms the royal badge of Ulster, a  bloody hand on a white field. It was in apt  reference to this that a famous whip, on learning that a baronet of his party was extremely  anxious to be promoted to the peerage, said :  " You can tell Sir Peter Proudflesh, with my  compliments, that if he wants a peerage he  will have to put his bloody hand into his  pocket. We don't do these things for nothing."  im, 6  THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  LARRY'S   LEPTER.

The  ink issuppost to flow from the harrel-handel  to the gooid point ov the pen, but in 99 cases  out of a hundred it's only supposition. Whin  it does take a flowing spurt or glowing squirt  it makes an awful mess ov it entoirely.

I was parsing the other  night and she was singing :  I heerd a wail  Without the jail,  I know not whence it came,  It seemed to say  " Just draw my pay,  "And then erase my name."  The public light  Is now each night  As dim as dim can be ;  The city has hold  The plant, I'm told,  Tins electricity.  I heard a noise  Among the boys  At back of S i 1 ver Ki ng,  I asked the cause,  Without a pause  They whispered " Wedding ring."

Ye see, Tim, that Polly Baker has   a   better  chance ov knowing what's   going  on   in town  than the Bogustown bird,   an' a   moighty ob-  sarvint crature she is.       The  parrot   was all  roight about the wedding ring.      Meself heerd  the noise, too, an', wanting to foind out what it  was all ahout, I sthrolled down be the pea-nut  stand, an' sure enuf there   was   no   mistaking  that there was a chivaree   going oni       Its the  first entertainment ov the soort we've   had in  Nelson since the Chivaree Club   broke   up an'  President McCarthy sint in his resignation an'  left for Victoria.

They had a foihe collection  ov owld  cans an' whiseis, an' all the boys wor shouting  as hard-as they could.

The weekly meeting of the City Council was  held on Monday afternoon, Aid. Teetz^l presiding. Aldermen Hillyer, Malone, Madden and  Giiker were also present.  Tenders were opened for sewer extension.  \Y7. P. McEchern was awarded the contract for  Ward Street extension at 29-gC per foot, and  Hare & Munrce for Mill and Stanley Street  extension at 50c per foot for the former and 45c  for the latter.  Contractor Kilby wrote withdrawing his  tender for laying sidewalks at $3 50 per yard.  Thomap McCardia offered to do the work at  a like figure, and his tender was accepted.  The City Fngineer reported that the work of  clearing the cemetery was progressing favorably. He also suggested that some arrangement be made for the taking over of the cement  now at the railway depot and the storage of  same, also for the handling of sewer pipe.  The Engineer was authorized to make the  necessary arrangements.  A letter was read from Mr. Hedley, of the  Hall Mines smelter, asking that the terms of  agreement as to water supply, entered into  some time ago, be complied with.  A long discussion ensued, during which i t  transpired that thV present water supply would  not justify a service to the smelter���in fact,  that there was not sufficient pressure for the  electric light works.  The Chairman suggested that a couple of  other creeks might be turned in at small cost.  It was decided to instruct the City Engineer  to have the east fork of Anderson Creek connected with the head waters of present source.  An agreement was produced according to  which the Hall Mines were to get all the water  a six-inch pipe would supply.  Aid. Hillver : I never saw that before. I  was not aware that any such arrangement had  been made.  The other members Of the board also expressed surprise at the contents of the document, and it was decided to allow the matter  to lay over until the return of the mayor.  The defective electric light was discussed,  the deficiency being attributed to lack of water.  The Chairman suggested that another reservoir be provided anbl the various available  creeks turned in.  Aid. Malone recommended as a means: of  utilizing the power that store keepers should  be notified to turn off the light after business  hours.  Chairman : People who keep the lights burning all night should be charged extra. There  are hundreds of them.  A number of lenders were handed in for the  repair of Victoria, and Vernon Street bridges.  That of W. G. Ross was accepted as being the  lowest. His figures were : Caps in place per  1000, $10';,' removing and replacing grating,  $6.,.; stringers^ $4 25 for Victoria, and $3 25  for Vernon ; flooring, $4 25 for Victoria and  $3 25 for Vernon Street bridge.  Aid. Hillyer called attention to the fact that  the streets and sidewalks bylaw had heen pronounced defective by the court in the case  of the City v Peters. He expressed his conviction that there was not a single by-law of  the city which could be held to be sound, and  proceeded to denounce the ex-city solicitor.  The Chairman : It we ever get the Mayor  down to husiness this can be settled.  Aid. Malone thought they should have got  better value for their money from the late city  solicitor. The bylaws cost the city a good  deal of money, and it was too bad to find that  they were wrong.  Aid. HlUyer : I dont believe there is a single  one of them right. Every time our bylaws  have been contested we lost.  The Chairman instanced one in which the  statutes provided a penalty of thirty days' imprisonment while the bylaw had it =ixty.  Aid. Hillyer moved that the Mayor be authorized !o engage a competent lawyer to revise the city bylaws.  The motion passed unanimously.  On motion of Aid. Hillyer, Aid. Teetzel was  appointed Mayor during the absence of Mayor  Houston,  Aid. Giiker to act as city treasurer.  A number of accounts having been passed,  the council adjourned.

There is no particular harm in a  Canadian boasting of his family tree, so  long as there is nothing shady about it.  A room, when full of married people,  may be said to be empty, because there  is not a single person in it.  A collector at Bombay has among h-is  Curiosities   a    Chinese     god    marked  'Heathen   Idol"   and  adjoining  it  a  gold coin marked " Christian Idol."  Sue���" I had an awful scare the othei  day w h i le du t lbr a w a 1 k w i th W ill."  ���   ' Lou���"How?"  Sue���"Why, we met the minister  and Will asked him to join us."  John Burns, theEnglish labor leader,  has made a will that no court can break.  He leaves his best love to his wife, a  sound constitution to his son, his books  to the parish and his debts to his coiiu-  trv.- .  A prominent Toronto business man,  whose name  we  shall   not at  present  ..mention,   but   who  is  known   for   his  absent-mindedness, called his office boy  a few mornings ago and said, " Janies,r.  go up to  my  bouse and  teU  Mrs.������  that I have again forgotten my  watch.  Bring it with  you."     Palling  out  his  watch   he    continued,    "Now    hurry  back, James, ic is. now ten and   I  have  an   important  engagement  at   eleven,  and I must have it before that  time."  Many years ago, when a Berwick  election petition was being heard before  a Committee of the House afOonimons,  considerable amusement was caused by  the difficulties of the South-country  members to make out the Berwick dia  lect. " Well," said, counsel to a witness, " Where did X go?" "He went  wi' we," replied the native of the  ancient burgh. " Wi' we?" repeated  the puzzled ch.airm.in. " What is " wi'  we" ?" " Well," came the reply, "he  went wi' huz;." "Hu^?" But who  is. ' huz '?" " Huz is we!" cried the  borderer, indignant that his tongue  should be so little understood.  A young  Montreal   man   who went  " West" rilled with enthusiasm and a  desire to " grow up with the country,"  surprised his friends by returning home  the other day after an absence  of several weeks.    He said that while l.e v* a  out land-hunting in  what he thought  was  the  garden-spot  of   America,   in  Alberta, near the foot of the Rockies he  .  rame across a boarded up claim shanty.  On the boards nailed across the door he  found this inscription, which accounted  for his unexpected return���"Fore miles  from a nayber.    Sixteen  miles from a  postoris.
