City Scavenger Holbrook has announced  his intention of erecting a crematory. He has  had considerable trouble in disposing of garbage, and has been fined on several occasions  for dumping material both within and without  the city limits. In most communities a dumping ground is provided for the seavewgers and  is under the control of the governing body.  However, in Nelson, no such provision is  made���an}7 man can be a scavenger, and there  is no control over them, except indeed, that  exercised by the police. Now a crematory  is to be erected, over which the city will have  no control. It is necessary that there should  be some effective means of dealing with refuse  matter. The public importance of the subject  would seem to suggest thac the public should  control   the crematory.     However, the mayor  ���a ��� _  and aldermen take a different view. They  allow private enterprise to do what public  spirit should suggest, and one of these days  they will be buying over the crematory on  something like the liberal terms proposed for  the purchase of the electric light plant. A  few years ago the electric light plant was installed, we are told, for something about  $n,ooo, and today a sum of $40,000 is asked  for it. The crematory will probably be put  up for some $500 or $600, but when the city  go to buy it $5,000 or $6,000 will be demanded. Now is the time to make arrangements for disposal of garbage ; it is necessary,  and instead of allowing private enterprise to  do the work the city should do it.  The Spokesman-Review is authority for the  statement that D. C. Corbin intends to make a  new application to Parliament for a charter for  the Kettle  River  Valley railroad,   and  adds,  " The announcement has caused a sensation in  the railway circles opposed to the bill." Why  the announcement should cause a sensation we  fail to see. Mr. Corbiir knows a good thing  when he sees it, and that he should still have  his eye and his heart on the Boundary country  is not to be: wondered at. c But the priuciple  which we all along advocated in this railway  controversy has been established���a Canadian  company has been given the preference. The  C.P.R. are building into the Boundary country  and if Mr. Corbin is convinced that there is  room for two railway S37stems in the district he  is quite welcome to try the experiment, provided it costs the country nothing. Mr. Corbin has already a "charter from congress to  cross the north half of the Colville Indian reservation, but the road as outlined would traverse a considerable portion of Canadian territory. The object is, of course, to secure the  trade of the Boundary country, which Mr. Corbin seems determined to have. He is not likely  to encounter much opposition at Ottawa this  time.  At a recent meeting of the British Columbia  Board of Trade a communication was read from  the curator of the Imperial Institute,   London,  calling attention to the fact that no   exhibit of  the fish or fruit products of this province   bad  vet been received at the institute,   nor had the  mineral exhibits promised   Y)y   the   provincial  assayer arrived.     The Imperial Institute is an  expensive concern, and that it does not accomplish the end for   which  it   was   founded  is a  verdict which has already been pronounced by  some of the colonies,   which   have withdrawn  their support.     The section devoted to British  Columbia is not q  choice one,   but   indifferent  as it is it is   regrettable to   find that it   is  not  suitably supplied.       So long   as this   country  contributes to the support of the   Imperial institute so long should it be fittingly represented.  The minerals, timber, fish, fruit, etc., of British Columbia are entitled to a prominent place,  and it is, therefore, to be hoped  that   no   time  will be lost in forwarding samples of our principal products for exhibition.  As mentioned in   last   week's   Economist,  Liluokalani, the Queen of Hawaii,   intends to  issue a manifesto to her people   publicly pretesting against the transfer of the   Islands to  the United States, the confiscation of the Crown  lands, which consist of nearly 1,000,000 acres,  yielding a yearly rental of $200,000,   and also  claiming some $400,000   collected   as   rentals.  We wish Queen   Eil   every   success.       She is  entitled to the  spmpathy  and   support of all  fair-minded people, for a clearer case   of steal  was never perpetrated than   when the   United  States took forcible possession of Hawaii, and  drove the Queen into seclusion to satisfy the  avarice and greed of a few American citizens  who, unhappily for the peace of Hawaii, happened to settle in the islands.  A correspondent writing from Dawson City  under date June 30, says that there  were then  in the city about 10,000 people,   700 of whom  had arrived within the preceding thirty   days.  The outlook is not very   bright,   according to  this authority,   for   he   states,   4' Of this large  number of men, fully  90 per   cent,   land here  with no definite idea as   to what   they  intend  doing.    The boats are tied, a meal is generally  eaten, and then everyone   rushes  down   town  (almost all boats land above the city) to see the  sights        Then,   for the first time,   they learn  that every claim within  70   miles   of Dawson  has been staked.       There are   here even   now  more disappointed, desperate, and discouraged  men in proportion to   population than in   any  other mining camp in the world.   The outlook  for hard times and even starvation to   many is  extremely serious."     A few of the more fortunate arrivals in that country have returned to  civilization 'with glittering gold, and it is to be  feared that   this   will   prove   an   incentive   to  others to try their luck.      But not one man in  a thousand has done well in the northern gold  fields, and  the   chances  for   new   arrivals  are  every day growing more slim.       Except some  new discoveries be made it is clear that the sufferings of those   now in   that inhospitable   region must be considerable.  Lord Salisbury has a pretty strong family  connection in the British Parliament. The  election of Evelyn Cecil for East Herts, adds  yet another to.the list. The premier has now  in the house of commons two sons, Eord  Cranbourne and Lord Hugh Cecil ; and three  nephews, A. J. Balfour, Gerald Balfour and  Evelyn Cecil. In the house of lords he has a  son-in-law, the Earl of Selbourne. With himself, these give a total of seven, and between  them they share the not unimportant offices of  prime minister and foreign secretary, leader of  the house of commons and first lord of the  treasury, chief secretary for Ireland, and under  secretary for the colonies.  It is semi-officially announced that the Earl  of Minto is to be the successor of Lord Aberdeen as governor-general of Canada. The  earl is not unknown in this country, and he  is one who is likely to prove a worthy successor to the present incumbent of the office.  Gilbert John Murray Kynynmend Elliott,  fourth Earl of Minto, was born  in   1845.      In  wi��aireMiMwam,tjnwm,unMiMMia.jiHMunui,i  M"*-*^^**^^ THE NELSON  ECONOMIST.  1883 he married the daughter.of Hon. Charles  Grey. He . was educated at-Trinity College,  Cambridge, and soon after completing his  course was appointed ensign of. the Scots  guards in 1867. The Earl of Minto in 1877  served with the Turkish army, took part in  the Afghan war of 1879, and in 1881 became  private secretary to General Lord Roberts at  the Cape. * He went as a volunteer in the  Pvgyptian campaign of 1882 and from 1883 to'  1885 was military-secretary to the Marquis of  Lansdowne, then governor general of Canada.  He was chief of the staff in the Northwest  rebellion of 18S5. "      p   , ;  According to an -English  journal,.  Eugene  Mesnard, a French botanist, is reputed to have  discovered    a    simple:  and    easy    method   of  measuring the intensity of an odor.     He takes  advantage of the delicate qualitative power of  the sense of smell���that is, of its, abilitj^ to discriminate between cdors, although   they differ  onty by a ver}' little.       Pie  finds  that if some  ver3* characteristic odor be  mingled with  the  one of the measured, there is  a   certain   point  where they balance, and form what  is  called a  " neutrol odor."     In this state the addition of  a minute quantity' of either  scent  causes   that  cue to predominate, and  thus  a  very   "small  smell can be detected and measured.''  Bismarck is dead ! In the passing away of  t le prince Europe has lost one of her most distinguished statemen and warriors. To his  foresight and genius Germany owe > much of  her orreat-yes:;, and now that Germany's Grand  <y} -"  Old Man has passed away,, the impetuosities of'  the erratic Emperor will be niore   than  ever  -^  menace to the peace of Europe.       x\s   long as  Bismarck   lived, a  cool head   and iron will restrained the dangerous aspirations of the young  Emoeror, and in the obsence of these wise coun-  sels it is to be feared there is danger ahead.   It  is most unfortunate that the Prince  should  be  called away at this particular  juncture-,   when  Europe   is in a   very   treacherous   mood,   and  when on the slightest pretext War may   be declared. .  A brief sketch of the great   man  who  is now   numbered   with  the dead,   may'be. of  interest.       Prince Otto Edward   Leopold   Bis-  marck-Schonhausen   was born  of  ar.   old  and  noble family of the  "mark"   Bradenburg,  at  Schonhausen, April 1,  1815.      He was created  a Count September 16,  1865,   and   Prince voir  Bismarck in March,  1S71.       He was educated  at the university of Foetingen and Grieferswald  and spent some time in the   army,    but subsequently settled down as a country  gentleman.  Brought no in the political faith of the Junkers  of the Prussian Ton'-  squirarchy,   he   became,  in 1S46,   a  member of   the   provincial   diet of  Saxony and of the Prussian diet, in   which  he.  first attracted attention by his fiery speeches in  defense of the old monarchial party.       Durir.g. j  the revolutionary period of 1848 the service he   j  rendered to the Conservative cause   led to  his   j  appointment as the representative of Prussia in : j  the diet of the old German bund at Frankfort,   |  and from that datethe voice of Prussia   began   ���'  to have increasing weight.       Mainly   through   j  his exertions the North German confederation   .  with' Prussia as its   head -was   established,:   in  place of the old bund,   while with   the   South  German States an offensive and defensive alliance concluded,   giving   the   King of Prussia  supreme command of all the   troops in time of  war.     The foresight of Bismarck   -was-.clearly ;  shown- at the time of the Franco-Prussian war.  When it was   announced    that   hostilities had  been declared,.Prince Bismarck pointed to  his  desk saying" You   will   find complete   plans  there.''   The completeness of these  plans was  shown by the result  of that   memorable   war.  Europe   has   lost one of her  gieatest men  in  Bismarck.  The  Universal    Brotherhood' is   the   latest  addition  to the   long  list   of  religions or organizations formed with the avowed- intention  of bettering the condition of man.      The Universal Brotherhood was organized   at Chicago  last  February    by   Katherine   A.   Tingley,  a  leader   of   the   Theosophical   movement,   and  has since spread   with   wonderful force.       It  has found its way into this province, and it  is  said   that   a   branch   of   the brotherhood   or  league is to be established   in   Nelson.       The  objects of the league may be briefly .summarized as follows : : :''���"..'.  ���   1.  To help men and  women   to   realize the  nobility of their calling,   and  their   true   posi-,y  ���tion in life. ' ���  2. To educa te chiidren of all .nations--on' tile  broadest, lines of Universal Brotherhood, and  to prepare destitute and homeless children: to  become workers for humanity.  3. To ameliorate the condition of unfortunate women and to assist them to a   higher life.  4. To assist those who are, or have been, in'  prisons to establish themselves in honorable  positions in life.  ���5.   To endeavor to  abolish   capital   punishment.  6. To bring about a better understanding  between so-called savage and civilized races,  bv.Qrornotiiis: a closer and more sympathetic  relation-shin between them.  7. To relieve human suffering 'resulting"  from flood, famine, war and other caL-mities ;  and generally* toextend aid, help and'comfort  to suffering humanity throughout   the world.  The principles are broad enough   to suit all,  and if any or all of the objects" as set forth can  be accomplished we w7ill   welcome   to   Nelson  the Universal Brotherhood.  The Canadian Compatriots is the latest political organization and they will be heard from  at the next dominion elections. The Compatriots are an offshoot of the Patrons of Industry, with Toronto as head quarters ; but  they wont be in it with the Nelson Nationalists, as soon as organization is thoroughly  completed.  It is announced from Ottawa that the prohibition plebiscite will be taken during the last  week in September. The subject is one which  has been before the country for a number of  -years, and when the poll takes place it ought  to be a decisive one. Tire liquor interests are  unfortunately very powerful in Canada, as  elsewhere, so that the lovers of temperance  will have a big job in hand if they are to  down   the    whiskey   men.      Thev   know   the  strength of the enemy, and should leave  nothing undone to oust him from his stronghold. However, total prohibition is an /���ex--  : treme measure, and should only he had recourse to as a last resort.. We believe that if  the liquor traffic w7ere',. properly regulated  there would be no ������necessityYfof prohibition,  but as that trade is plied at present drastic  measures are -necessary to minimise its' evils.  In another page will be found a report of the  proceedings at   the   City   Council  on Monday  afternoon,   and   very ��� interesting    reading   it  makes.     His' worship the MayOr was in a talkative mood.     It is well that he should now and  again take his brethern of the aldermanic board  into his confidence.   Up to date we were under  the impression that everything 'was going on  nicely in   Nelson,   and  that   the   Mayor   was  earning his salary, but his worship has himself  removed the delusion.       It now   appears that  everything: is going wrong.     According to the  ���Ma37"or'-s statement, a foreman and gang of men  employed   on   the   Vernon Street   bridge   are  drawing   regulation   wages   for   laying   three  planks per day, and on,the other public works  the hands engaged devote the energies todoaf-  ingy    In all well regulated communities' there  is an officer   whose   especial   duty   it is to see  that public works are honestly.executed.������"'... We  do not know that such an officer is on  the city  staff of Nelson..      There is an official drawing  salar^7" as city engineer,   but What   his   powers  are we know not.        If he has charge of public  works he certainty should   net   allow   such  a  state of affairs   to   exist   as   described   by the  Mayor.     But we'rather think that his worship  runs the.show..     He draws $2,000 per annum,  and as he is not, u'nfortunatety,.iu a position to  entertain, he must'make some show of earning  the salary^, and the   w7a\r he does   it   is to play  the role of general all-round boss    Now Mayor  Pious ton declares that the workmen  employed  by the-city are loafers,   that the chief of police  will not receive orders from  him   although he  is Ma3Tor of the city^ and a police commissioner,  that the city* solicitor is   an   undesirable   man,  and the health officer and   coroner are no better.       Of course the fact  that   Dr.   Arthur is  protesting the Electric Light ByT-law does   not  bias his worship's opinion of that official in the  least.       The present   lamentable  condition  of  affairs his worship   no doubt attributes to the  " dirty scrub "   and   "bush-whackers,"   who  will persist in exercising their rights of citizenship.       We would like to refrain   from giving  publicity.to such proceedings'as those of Monday afternoon, but it is a duty we owe the public to present things as they are.     His worship  did not tell all he knows of public business  on  Monday afternoon.       At another time we may  feel   called   upon  to add   to   the   cateerorv   of  grievances   which   the   city of  Nelson suffers  from under present rule.  A special telegram to the Nelson Miner from  Vancouver announces that "no decision has  3^et been arrived at as to the titular leadership  of the Opposition. This point w ill be decided on August 26���in the event of the Opposition party getting into office."     Wby, the THE NELSON  ECONOMIST.  r: >  'Minerhas"been trying to pursuadeits readers  that the Opposition are in office, and that all  was clear sailing for those-great saviors of the  people. On the same high authority^ it is  stated that ,lj;cseph Martin will either take  the premiership or else that he will not." We  rather incline to the thought that he will not.  It is reported that arrangements have been  made to organize a naval reserve among'the  fishermen of Newfoundland, five hundred of  whom will be enrolled and duly instructed.  The experiment is a new one. It has not  been applied to any of the colonies, although  why it should not it is difficult to understand.  Along the Atlantic as well as the Pacific  shores a naval reserve would be vexy desirable in case of trouble, and .would be a decided  acquisition. With the militia forces on land  and a good naval reserve Canada would be in  a position to hold her own.,  Hoole3'-, a notorious English company promoter, is making startling revelations in',London,.which go to prove that financial circles  in the great metropolis are as corrupt as any-'  where else. It is' a well known fact that:  many men lend their names to companies to  give them prestige, but few had any idea that  the company oromoter is the crooked indivi-  dual wdiich Hoole3T describes. Asa result of  the investigation now going on it is said that  several verA'- prominent business men are leaving the countr}--, and the inference is that .they  are afraid of being drawn into the dirty- business. Briber and corruption of the worst  class have been proved, and little details given  as to company promoting which are calculated  to shock the public.  The Nicaraguan Canal project is once again  being forced on the attention of the public, and  this time it looks as if business is meant. President McKinley, it is stated wall make a strong  recommendation to congress for legislation to  ensure che completion of the work. The  utility of the canal has been veryr clearty  demonstrsted during the war with Spain. It  is a work which will alter very considerably  the geography of the wrestern hemisphere.  Fishery Commissioner Little is responsible  for the statement that the Columbia river will  soon be " fished out," owing to the policy of  the Oregon fishermen and the fact that the  state does little or nothing to propagate its  fish. The lack of hatcheries and a license  law for the protection of salmon, he declares,  wall eventually' mean a loss of the industry on  the Columbia river. The falling off of the  salmon ydeld has led the people to taking an  interest in the matter this year.  Lord Charles Beresford has been proclaiming  that the British navy is not what it should be,  and he threatens that if parliament does not do  what he considers the right thing, he will hold,  meetings throughout the country and invoke  public sentiment in the cause. Eord Charles  wants more,ships, more men, and more money.  And hdsdordship goes even farther, and would  increase the pension  of the   navy   men.       He  thinks 29 cents per day is inadequate as a pension for men who have put in 32 years. Why  pension them at all ? Would it not be better  polic3'r to pa3' the men a fair rate of wage and  let them make provision for old age and the  raii/y^ da3* ? , Why should,public servants be  pensioned while private citizens, '/who la variably work much harder,' are obliged to look  out for themselves. Pampored public servants  cost the country more than they are .worth..:  At last the Spanish Government is s'ueing.  for peace. Frcm the very commencement of  hostilities it w7as a foregone" conclusion that the  United States would whip the Spaniards, and  now Spain must make the best terms she can,  Spanish ruiein Cuba has beeu a disgrace to  civilization. In the natural order of things it  could not endure, and now that a victory 1 as  been achieved under the Stars and Stripes, it  is to be hoped that statesmen will have a voice  in the settlement of damages to the utter exclusion of yellow journalism.  The province of British Columbia is admittedly one of the richest in the dominion, and  that any thin g shou 1 d be done to retard iIs pro-  gress is matter for regret. A' couple of years  ago an ill-advised agitation was started for the  separation of the island from the mainland, but  wiser counsel prevailed, and the 'hot-headed  fanatics w;ho advocated the change were, for  the time being, silenced. We regret to observe  that the dismemberment of the province is  again being agitated, and on no higher grounds  than those of making political capital" out of  existing differences. The movement, however,  has not long to live.  Capt.- Smith, (the Halifax member of the  farnity) R. N. R., Government wreck commissioner, has made public his report :pii the  result of his inquir3' into the cases of the collision between the French steamer EaBourgogne  and the British ship Cromartyshire which  resulted in the loss of the former vessel with  over 500 on board. Capt. Henderson and  officers of the Cromartyshire arc declared free  from responsibility for the disaster .and their  conduct after the colision is pronounced to  have been praiseworthy. As for the La-  Bourgogme the evidence, it is asserted, is clear  that instead of endeavoring to avoid the  Cromart3*shire she made no effort to do so.  She was running at a very high rate of speed,  whereas she should have maintained onty  moderate speed on account of the thick leg  which prevailed. Halifax fogs are thick.  Besides she was a long distar.ee cut of the  course laid down in the Atlantic pilot chart.  Capt. Smith expresses the opinion selected for  passenger steamers to and from American  ports. These routes, he sayTs, should be  established by^ law and adopted hy the Governments of the various nationalities and should  be laid down where the least amount of fog  wrould be met. But the fog was thick, and  it required all the steam that could be generated in the boilers to get through it in the case  of the Bourgogne.  United States with a desire, to deal generously  with Spain. ' The Saturday Review, for  instance, says : " We are convinced that  America, now she has learned to appreciate  the bravery and fighting qualities of .the Spaniards, as well, as the . worthlessnesS' of the  Cuban rebels, will make, obvious atoiiement  for the precipitancy^ with which she entered  upon the war by*dealing generously with her  opponent." The American press, on the  other hand, is advocating the dangerous doctrine of acquisition, which io likely to lead to  trouble.        , \  The new woman is rapidly coming to the  front in alf lines of business, and especially ill  the higher professions and callings. A short  time ago Miss Marie Tenney graduated from  a theological school, earned the degree of  bachelor of divinity, and was ordained as a  minister of the Gospel in Syracuse. During  the ceremonies the invocation was offered by  Rev. Maria Murdoch, who is administering  the affairs of a good-sized parish. Near the  end of the service Rev, Mrs. Sofford extended  the right hand of fellowship in a neat and eloquent address and the Rev..:M'iaryari'ne Murphy  followed suit. But we are living under a new  order of things, and must be prepared for the  new' worn ait.  YMIR.  The   English   papers   generally   credit   the  (Special correspondence to The Economist.) ������  Two large orders have been given for lumber by the Canadian Pacific Exploration, Ltd.,  and the London & B. C. Goldfields to Frank  Lavin, Salmo. This will be used for the erection of their concentrators.  It is reported that the tovvnsite will change  hands in the near future. This is decidedly  welcome news to the Ymirites. With the  change I fee! confident that the town will go  ahead.  Mr. A. B. Irwin, -manager of the Canadian  Pacific Exploration, Ltd., will remain in town  to superintend the erection of the mill and  plant.  An indecent assault case emanating from  Erie, B. C came before A. B. Buckworth,  J. P., 011 Mondays The case was adjourned  till Friday to gather witnesses, the prisoner  being out on bail for $1,000 till then.  Rev. Jas. Hicks and wife reached here on  Friday from Vancouver, B. C, where their  honeymoon was spent. in the evening a  surprise party welcomed him home in a royal  manner.  Ymir is ranking as a Sabbath desecrating  town. Sunday a baseball match took place  between Ymir and Salmo teams. We cannot  applaud this procedure, because there is a.  likelihood of a great evil becoming prevalent.  A ver3r enjoyable moonlight excursion was  oiven last nig/ht, the steamer Hercules provid-  ing the accommodation. About forty persons  took in the trip and bad a ver>^ happy- time.  A landing was effected at Balfour and the Outlet Hotel was made as attractive as possible  for the visitors.  w-*rr^-?ttV��Frnxn^ THE NELSON ECONOMiST.  A    VANISHED    GROOM.  It was the moment of supretnest pleasure to  Abner. The Wedding canop3' had been  raised, the benediction uttered, the wring  placed on the bride's finger, the kiss given to  seal the union, She was his own at last. His  highest ambition had been gratified. With  words of congratulation his friends crowded  around him. It was a joyous atmosphere  indeed, while his wife gazed at him with the  lovelight in her eyes.'  '' Dearest," he exclaimed suddenly as he  withdrew with her for a moment to a corner  of the apartment which overlooked the garden  with its winding paths, from which strains of  music arose, inviting all to the dance : '' dearest, I must leave thee now."  "Oh, Abrier," the bride half sobbed in  reply, ���'..-' wouldst thou leave me at this moment  of all moments -in-, the world ? Why, the  echoes of the marriage blessings still resound  in the air. Whither wouldst thou go, dearest? Surety'," she added, with a look of  reproach, " thy place is now at my side.  Wouldst thou forsake me on our wedding  -day?" '���'���', ������;'"  f' -May,.-.' my beloved ; make no close inquir3r,  nor seek  to   restrain    me.       I   must   go.      I  ' ��� ��� �� ��  have sworn to go. Only trust in me and  doubt not my faithfulness. I shall return  within an hour, and then explain all to thee.  Have no fear for my sake." And without  further farewell than a quick embrace. Abner  left her and hurried into the open air before  the astonished guests could realize that the  bridegroom was missing.  Of all the 3'outh in Jerusalem Abner and  Caleb were the comeliest lads, and their frend-  ship had grown into a proverb. Close companions at school from boyhood to earty manhood, no love could have been more tender, no  sympathy' more profound, than that which  made them kindred spirits. The3' were fond  of the same pleasures, they shared the same  dreams, their studies and occupations were  alike, aspirations indentical. The3' loved to  give free rein to their fancies with youth's  rapt enthusiasm and build such dream palaces  that the magic splendor of Solomon's creations paled in comparison. What a daring  architect is 3'outh ! It knows not the impossible. It bridges the chasm of infinite time.  It rears a structure to the highest heaven. It  summons to its aid principalities and powers,  and never acknowledges defeat. Love and  hope and faith are the patient genii who at its  exultant bidding transform earth and sk3*.  Among the topics which Abner and Caleb  were fond of discussing as they grewr to  maturity the future life and immortality  appealed to them most strongly. The fact that  it was but dimly foreshadowed in the law and  the prophets added to its fascination, and the  rare refernces to it in the debates of the schools  onty increased its hold upon them. One da3T  in the heat of their arguments Caleb, more  impassioned than usual, had seized his companion's hand.  "Abner," he exclaimed, "wouldst thou  know the secrets of eternal life ?"  , " Why, Caleb!" Abner rejoined, moved by  his friend's earnestness, \' what a strange question to ask ? How can we mortals understand  aught of immortaluy ? Does not our law  say that  ' the   secret   things   belong   to    the  'Lord. M; .���;'.������; 'y/������'���"   ,.   ���"'-.  "Faith can pierce all barriers, dear friend,''  Caleb answered impressively, "and love,  though buried from sight, can make its own  revelation."  ���\M What dost thou mean, Caleb, by those  mysterious words aiid thrilling tones ?'' Abner  inquired, deeply stirred^ for he felt that never  before had their conversation been so  earnest.  " Dost thou not believe, Abner, in immortality'?";".;  "Surely, Caleb, I do, as the central conviction of my nature."  " If this is thy belief, then, may not the  immortal spirit seek converse with 'mortality  and minister to the wants and desires of mortal flesh on earth ?"  "Caleb, thou shouldst not speak in this  strain. It is almost blasphemy, Think of  the fate of the sons of Haron who brought  strange fire into the sanctua^ !"  " Nay, Abner, I am guilty of no blaspheiry.  Lam convinced that those who pass from life  do not become as petrified as the slabs that  cover them. They hover around those who  loved them and   whom   they ' loved   on   earth  and mingle in their jo3's arid sorrow."  " It must be so, Caleb, if thou thinkest so,"  said Abner after a pause.  " Come, Abner," Caleb soletnty exclaimed,  "let us swear by the eternal that if either of  us die the survivor shall seek to communic-ite  with thedeparted one and visit the sepulcher at  the moment of his highest happiness on earth.  Then it is my fervent belief that the secret of  heavenly happiness will be unfolded, and .we  shall attain the highest degree of intelligence."  The compact was made���an unsual thing in  those days among the pious Jewish youth���  and the conversation ended. In a few years  Caleb died, and Abner, disconsolate and  dejected, disdained for a while all society, but  spent the largest share of his leisure at the  friend's grave, reflecting on his genial traits  and their loving intercourse. Time, however,  works its magical changes, and now he had  married.  " I had almost forgotton thee, beloved  Caleb," said Abner softly to himself as he left  the crowded streets of Jerusalem and gained  the roadway leading to the cemetery. '' Surely  this is the happiest moment of my life, wedded  to the one I hold most dear. Could their be  a more fitting time to think of thee and our  mutual oath ?"  It did not take long, for the distance was  short and we wTalked with hurried steps,  before Abner found himself close to the simple  slab that covered the remains of Caleb. Flinging himself upon it, he gave wray to his emot-  tions, but b3' a strong effort his self control  gained the mastery. Then he communed  thus with the spirit of his friend :  " Beloved Caleb, not with fear and trembling but with glad confidence I approach thee.  Thou rememberest our oath.      I have come to  thy grave at the full tide of my happiness, to  learn of thy experience in the realms of bliss.  Thou recallest our converse in chose joyous  da3^s of youth when it was our desire to pierce  all myster3'. Be near to me now, dear friend,  and in thy purified state uplift the veil which  hides the rnortal froin the immortal. Inspire  me now oh, Caleb, with the knowledge I seek  and let me not ask in vain."  Abner ceased, half expectant of some  response. But no voice broke the stillness.  The shadows of evening were deepening. One  by one the stars shone in the firmament.,  Abner failed to notice the advancing night in  his rapt contemplation. Then a faint murmuring rent the air and the trees that  skirted the burial ground seemed to give forth  a sobbing sound.  "Oh, Caleb," Abner entreated, with outstretched hands; "answer me. By the  eneffable name of God,' answer me."  The tremusous weeping of a child was  borne on the breeze. A flash of lightening  lit up the distant hills, and a rumbling as of  thunder was heard.  " Do I disturb thee,   oh,    Caleb,   from   thy,  rest ?      Forgive   me,     beloved    friend.      But  answer me, as thou didst swear   to   do.      Tell  me the delights of immortal life."  "Abner? Abner !" At the words Abner's  countenance shone with sudden Jo3r. '*_ At  last !" he exclaimed. " At last I hear thy  voice again !"  " Abner, such a delight is mine as is comparable to no eartty bliss. So pure, so  radiant, so serene, are my companions that  my voice cannot describe a thousandth portion  of my happiness. Have no regret at our  served friendship. A swreeter, stronger bond  unites us now. Dost thou yearn to see again  m3r features and clasp my hand as of old ?  Why, I am nearer to thee than in the past,  and my eye sees clearer within where spirit  responds to solve the mystery. I have  gained the heights."  The voice ceased for a moment and then  resumed :  " More could I tell thee. But dost thou  know the penalty? A thousand years on  earth are but a moment in eternity. Even  as thou communest with me here, beloved  friend, the 3'ears vanish and life recedes. Oh,  hasten, hasten, ere it be too late ! Thy bride  awaits thee and wonders why thou art tarrying. Wouldst thou learn the secret of eternal life ? Make thy earth a heaven and live  well thy mortal years, with their alternate sun-  .shine and shade, as best preparation for  immortality. But hasten, hasten ! I dare  speak no more, for thine own dear sake."  Again a child's tremulous wail was borne to  Abner's ear. There came a flash of lightening and the muttering of thunder. Then the  shadows lifted, and it was sunrise on earth,  with a fresh, cheerful air sweeping across the  hills.  " Why, I have been sleeping," Abner  exclaimed, risiag with difficulty from the  ground. "How careless on my part;?! My  limbs are as stiff as an old man'sy and my  shagg3r   beard    has   grown     overnight.      A THE NELSON  ECONOMIST.

'he entreated as he strained  his sight for the accustomed glory of the temple mount, "Where art thou vanished, O  Jerusalem? :0 beloved bride, shall I see thee  no more? Home, friends, county, have I  Tost ye all ?" ;        ..-  Abner had dreamed 70 years, and when the  dream cloud-had lifted bride and friends had  long since died.1 The temple had fallen and  Jerusalem had become a ruin���the spoil, of  triumphant  Rome. ,V.  In seaking to pierce the mysteries of the  future, the present had passed from view and  left Abner in solitude. That was the penalty  of seeing visions.  c  LARRY'S LETTER.        ���[  Hoga.n's~ Alley, Aug i. ,  Deer Tim,���-I didn't see- any-thing more ov  the big bull that I was telling ye about last  week1;-'but I'm to wid that Paddy- Mydes is on  the look Out for him, an', that if he shows his  horns agin in the park, they'll ornamint the  stalls ov the pound for a whoile. The}' calls  the bull Hurry-up.;  They're getting the new graveyard ready  now, Tim, so that we can be all dasently buried whin our toime comes. We can rest in  peace near Cottonwood Creek, wid the mountains all round as monuments higher an' yet  grander than Nelson's piller in the foinest an'  richest country in the world (of coorse I mane  owdd Ireland) thats alwa}rs Dublin its capital.  I was  telling   Teddy   Branigan   about   that  ghost what they say7"   was   seen   near the owld  grave\rard in the park the other noight, an' he  spun me a yarn about   Daddy Nuts   that used  to nock about Galway in the days whin meself  was yung an' innocent.       Daddy put it in his  will that he   should   be   buried   wid a   bag ov  nuts under his   head.    Some   toime   after  the  wake an' the funeral, Tady an' some more ov  the boy7s wor talking ov poor owld Daddyr an'  his pillow, an' won ov thim said  'twas   a pit\'  to have the nuts wid the corpse  an' thim wid-  out any, so theyr began to think how they wor  to get at thim.   Won ov thim said he wouldn't  rob the dead for anything, an' the others towld  him he'd be afeerd.     The chap said he wasn't  afeerd, an' that if Tady   'd go   wid   him   he'd  get the nuts.       Well, they   had  a bet   on it���  Tady an' the other chap wor to go to the grave  an' get the nuts, ate thim,   an' bring back the  shells iu the pillow   case.       Won   moonloight  noight they started off on their journey,  Tady  wid a pick across his showlder an' Paddy wid  a spade.       As they wor going   along the road  they met something coming toward thim moving on a'pair ov black legs wid the rest ov the  body white, an' they trimbled an awful trimble.  "Where   are   ye going?"   say^s   the thing in  white.       Foinding thimselves cornered,  Tady  got   his pick ready for action   an'   Paddy un-  showldered the spade.     " Where are y~e going  yerself ?"   says they to the thing in white,   be  the way theyr wor going to lambaste it.     " As  none ov   us  is//after dasent   work,"   sa3'S the  thing in white,   "I may as well   be telling ye  that I'm going to stale won of Galligher's prize  lambs,   and  I   brought this   sheet   wid me to  rowl him up in.       What are ye chaps after ?"  Th.e.y    towld   him   that   they   wor   going   to  Dadcty's grave to dig up the 'nuts for a woger.  " That's,aisy,"   say^s   the   sheepstaiier,   "for  there  isn't a living spwl   there to  see 3re,   but  owld Granny-   Magee   at   the   lodge,   and she  can't put a fut under her -wid"the rumatis.

"says'' he,   an'wid that they   separated,    they  did,    the    sheep-stailer    for    the, sheep   an'  the grave-diggers for the grave.       As soon  as  they .got tp'the'ch-apel-yard-they,;lit a -lantern  to foind out -.Daddy Nuts tombstone, an' began  to dig.    Twasn't long till they got to the .coffin, but" they made so   much  noise   opening it  that they roused owld   Biddy Magee,   an'  the  poor froightened soul crawled out ov  her   bed  to see what was going   on.       The   moon   had  slunk behoind a passing cloud, an'all she seen  was the glimmer ov   the lantern be   the   grave  soide,   but whin  the   cloud   sped   on,   an'   the  moon   showed  Iter   pale face 'agin,   the   little,  spark ov the lantern was dimmed, an' Qr  nny  Magee bohowled Tady Branigan sitting  at the  edge ov the grave ateing nuts.       She thought  it was owld Daddy that  ris   from trie   dead  to  have a feed ov filberts, an' she started to screem:  ���-for tho* wake ov   limb   she   was   strong  ov  lung.      As soon as the bovs heerd her   screem-  ing "they hid behoind  the   tomb-stones,   an'   it  wasn't long till  a-mile-away^   nabor   made   his  appearance at the lodge. " Ho    ly St. Patrick,  Jerry Connolly,"   sa3'S  she,    "there's   Daddy  Nutts riz from his grave, an' he's ateing thim.

Jerry was a kind ov skeered, an'  says Granny to him,   " yer no man at all at all  to be afeerd," says she,   "an' if meself had the  use ov me limbs,   tis I would'nt moind   going-  over an' telling that owld chap to get   into his  grave  an'   behave   hisself."        "I'll   carry  y-e  over,'' says Jerry,   says   he,   an'   wid   that  he  rowled a white sheet around the owld woman,  slung her over his   back,   an'    headed   for  the  grave.

But Jerry   was  dazed wid fear, an' whin he got up to the grave  says Tacty to him, sa>^s he, thinking' it was the  sheep-stailer,    "You've   got a   good   won,    1  hopes."

Claf-  lin) has   a   very   interesting   letter   in   Public  Opinion on the. Anglo-American xAlliance. Her  ladyship draws a comparison between the Golden Age as sung by the ancient poets   and the  present day^, and wonders when   the prophecyr  of Isaiah will be fulfilled and   " they shall beat  their swords into ploughshares and their spears  into pruning hooks :   nation  shall   not  lift  up  sword against nation, neither shall   they learn  war any- more."     She points to the fact  that :  " At the present moment Europe  is  an   armed  camp    reacty for   slaughter.      Of    her   . sixty  million men twelve million are trained soldiers.  And the .New .World has recently^   entered   on  the f-rtal career of the old.      But a remote and  comparatively insignificant contest is  sufficient  to dislocate the   delicate   social   machinery   of  every civilized   State,   and a   dilatory   contest  /carries famine to   the    hearths    of   the    poor, ��  thousands of miles from the conflict.      In various countries in   both, he.mi.s'pheres,   starving  men and women are rioting   for   bread :   what  they really want is peace."  Pursuing the subject her ladyship asks:  "Can nothing be done, then; to make war  more difficult ? Is the Golclen Age to 'be  merety a poetic dream, never to be in any  degree realised ? We trust not. For, if we  mistake not, the first faint streak of the  brighter dawn is breaking. In both the Old  and the New World men of clear heads and  generous hearts are looking forward to a confederation of the English-speaking peoples.  And the slightest consideration of the matter  must convince every unprejudiced mind that  the speedy accomplishment of an Anglo-  American Alliance, based upon sound, equitable, and permanent principles, will lay the  foundation of a new era, one which, perchance, may be crowned by universal and perennial peace.  "It is always unsafe to prophesy, nevertheless we may venture to   forecast   the   prabable  outcome of an Anglo-American Alliance, instituted for mutual  defence,    and    to    keep    the  ,   world's peace.      In the first place, every coun-  I   try whose intelligence enables   it    to   perceive  i   that its interests also   are    best    promoted    bv  i   repressing warfare, will desire to share in    the  j   advantages of such an alliance.       France   and  I   Germany would bury   their   animosities,   and  ;   compete   with each other, and with ourselves,  ���   in friendly rivalries only.     Austria,  Italy, and  I   the miner states would   follow.       One   power  i   alone would have cause to regard this interna-  j   tional policy with hatred, since it would arrest  !   her career of conquest and destroy' her hope of  i   universal domination.   Since the days of Peter  the Great she   has   been   the chief  disturbing  ;   element in Europe, and has set the example of  tlio.se vast armaments which are ruining almost  all the nations,   and which   keep Russia itself  ;   in perpetual poverty." �����  THE NELSON  ECONOMIST.  THE  CITY COUNCIL.  ' The 'weekly meeting of the city* council was  held on, Monday afternoon, Mayor Houston  presiding. His worship was in a-:very talkative mood, and Aldermen Giiker, Madden,  Hillyer and .Malone were the appreciative  audience.  The proceedings were started with a resolution which was said to have been proposed by^  Aid,"��� Hillyer and seconded. by Aid. Gilk'er,  that from this date the city will not be respoii-  sible.for bills unless accompanied by a requisition signed by the mayor.  The resolution was put and carried.  Then followed .-'another.."resolution by the  same mover and seconder, that the maygr be  instructed to employ ./legal services 'as' the, city  may require same, and that John Elliott be no  longer '.--city solicitor.  Aid. Malone asked if the  city  solicitor had  been doing his duty*.        ." . - '  The mayor:    That    is    for   the   council to  determine.  Aid. Giiker :  Is it'necessary to-, have a city  , .    ����� , ���  solicitor all the time ?  Th e "M ay or :  Th e bills  bro u gh t  be fore   t h e  council have been altogether too large  for  the  services rendered  the city. ������;��������� From   this time  forth I think it would be well to have   no. city  solicitor.     If we should want legal  advice  we  can get it and pay for'it.  Aid Malone did not believe in paying a-city  solicitor except for services actually rendered.  The Mayor : The bills brought in here have  been for work for which the city has'-not-received the slightest benefit. I believe he has  soaked the city for every dollar he could, and  if we had a good solicitor we would not be  soaked. In regard to the right of way- for the  water works we took his advice and , lodged  $700 in theicourt at Victoria and paid $200 in  legal fees, and what have we got for it ? The  $700 is still in court, and we are as far from a  settlement as ever. We don't know where  we are. I believe John Elliott is not competent.for the position we gave him, and that he  should be fired.  Aid. Hillyer :   I would not say that the man.  is incompetent.  The mayor : Well I do, and I put myself on  record as saying so. He does not act in the  best interests of the city. We have acted on  his advice and we had to pay $200 in fees that  we received no benefit from and we have ��750  in the registry office, and we don't know when  we can get it.out, or where we are. From  this day forth we should look after our own  interests and not leave them to Mr. Elliott.  He certainly has not been looking after our  interests. It is time that we discharge him.  We want to do away with those people who  think they have the right to bleed the city.  The motion carried.  The next motion was in the name of the  same proposer and seconder, and was " That  from and after this date the city pay no accounts for the care of the indigent sick." In  putting the resolution the mayor said : " This  is getting to be a perfect nuisance, and it must  be stopped.       Men   come   here   from   outside  places and we have to support  them  in  their  sickness.     We have/a '.city, health  officer';  and  , we 'pay' him  well for his ���services,   but   if  he  attends a case of sickness he sends  in   his  bill  and we have to pay .it.-.    That is wrong.     It is  for us to say that  we  will   not   pay   these accounts.      We have hospitals here but they repulse us.      We have paid $500 for the care of  sick,   strangers    here    within    the    past    few  .months.      One   man,   Pitman,  cost us   nearly  $250, and the acting mayor sent him away to  Calgary and gave him $5.   Now that is.-wrong.  Dr.; LaBau gets $500 a year as medical: health  officer, but if/he attends a sick man he charges  us for it.       I would recommend that the office  be abolished.      We are here' for the benefit of  the cit3r, and not for the benefit of a   feyv   professional men who think they have a right to  rob the cit3*.  Aid. Hiltyer : I don't agree with y;ou there.  I think the interests of--this city are as well  looked after as au3^ cit3* in the country. Dr.  LaBau is the sanitary officer, and it is not his  duty to attend to cases of sickness for the'city*..  Aid. Malone thought it was the duty of the  council to look after the indigent sick. In the  case of old man Smith he thought he should  be sent to the hospital.  The -mayor : ..They would  not take   him-in  and he is a charee on us. ..-..������  Aid. Malone : I think they should. :  The Mayor, complained that Dr. Arthur, as  coroner, invariably calls in professional assistance when there is an. inquest and charges.$10  for same. He odded : Ail these men think  they can bleed the city. Drs. LaBau -tnd  Forin charged $60 and some odd cents for attending Pitman in their hospital, although  LaBau gets 500 a year as medical health officer. I say7 it is his duty to attend such cases  without charge. Pitman was ten weeks in his  hospital'and that cost the city $200.  Aid.     Malone:   They    are coming  in   here  pretty thick, and it is time to close down.       I  am told that Smith has   property  iu   Victoria.  Aid. Hillyer said this was not so.    The man  lias no  property.  The mayor said there was a grocer's bill of  $36 for one month in Smith's case. A lot of  loafers were living on the city, and it was  time to put a stop to it.  Aid. Malone said, he understood there were  a couple of men living with Smith at the city's  expense.  The Mayor : There is too much of this, I  am tired of these professional blood suckers.  No more dirty scrubs ever got their hands on  the city than the doctors and lawyers who are  bleeding us every turn.  Aid. Hiltyer : I don't believe the city of  Nelson is a sucker for any one.  The Mayor : Well, I place myself on record  as saying that we have paid these men money  for professional services that were not worth  what we paid  An application from Turner, Beeton & Co.  to have the street level raised opposite their  cold store on Water street, was referred to the  city engineer.  The Mavor : We employ* foremen at liberal  salaries, but I  notice   for   the   past   few   days  that they are not attending to their work, and  that the men under them are lOafing.      Now,  we should not be .paying''men for loafing.  Aid. Hiltyer :  Name them, Mr. Ma3*or.  The Ma3*or :   I think the best thing  we can  do is to say that from   aiid after this   date  all  ; public work be suspended.0 We are not getting  value for our -money."..- I have  seen these fellows loafinsr.  Aid. Malone : Well, who is to blame for  that ? The mayor has authority to discharge  any man he finds loafing. If I had the authority* I know there are a lot of them I would  discharge. T think it is the dutyy.of the mayor  and the city* engineer to discharge any* man  they* rind loafing.   ���  The mayor said that at the present; rateyit  Would take six months to complete the Vernon  Street bridge. The day labor S3*stem gave  the city considerably'������'the worst of it last summer, and the present loafing system'- was trot  desirable.   .  Aid. Malone : You should discharge -any  man 3*011 find loafing.  The Mayor : I was ,at the bridge one day  and I found thf<t all they did was to lay three  planks.  Aid. Malone :  Then  3*011 should   have   dis- '  charged them.  The Mayor :   It is moved   by   Aid.   Madden  that all work be suspended  except  such as is'  specialty ordered by*" the council.  Aid. Madden:  I., didn't'-make' that  motion.  The mayor :   Who will second it ?.  Alter considerable discussion   Aid.   Hillyer  consented to do the needful,    and   the motion  passed, its accredited mover protesting.  Aid. Hillyer drew attention to the fact that  a prisoner had escaped from the lock-up.  The Mayor said the chief of police had not  sense enough for the office, and that there was  friction between him and Thompson.  Aid. Malone suggested that the lock-up  should be put in order.  The Mayor : The chief of police has been  ordered to do certain things by the .mayor, and  -he simply* ignores him. He tells me that he  is taking notes, as if he is going to spring some  thing on me. But I defy him. My advice is  that you authorize me to suspend the chief of  police. He has not sense enough for the pesi-  tion. He is.a good patrol man, but he hasn't  sense enough to be chief.  Aid. Hillyer : Give him a caution and that  will do. I never heard a complaint brought  against him at this council.  The Mayor : I 'nave spoken to him several  times, but it is no use. He simpty ignores me.  Now I want the council to authorize me to suspend the man.  Aid. Malone : That is for the police commissioners and not the council to do.  The Mayor : If I am backed up b3* thecoun-  cil I can go before the police commissioners  with some authority and do something. It  has been frequently- remarked to me that it is  a mistake to have such a man as chief. The  chairman of finance committee has told me so  over and over again. I would be for firing the.  man, or both of them.  After some further discussion it was decided  to put the lock-up in order, and the council  adjourned.  1    ���____ A THE NELSON  ECONOMIST.

In   a  short   time  they     either     feel     well     enough  acquainted   to   cease  trying   to   be  agreeable as at first or they have in  reality talked, themselves out.     Perhaps they are vain,  and   others   do  not see fit to pander to such evident  sMflove, suggests a writer in Woman's  Life.      Be    that   as   it    may,  when     the    reaction     comes     the  admirers  and  adorer's   of the   first  day or two   will discover   that  the  wit was not spontaneous, the grace  fill manner natural or   the   interest  in   their   affairs   gesiuine, and they  drop the flashing,   brilliant   meteor  and look about for the steady glow-  in or star that sheds its mild radiance  on all about in a quiet, unobtrusive  manner, yet with a   beauty   all   its  own   that  is   wonderfully    taking.  The  woman    who    wears    well    is  rarely a beauty^.      If she were, perhaps she would   consider   her   personal perfections so great she would  deem   it   unnecessaryf.to   cultivate  the graces of  the   heart   and   mind  that   prove   so   attractive   to   those,  about   heri    ��She   is   usually    possessed of intelligence   which   lights  her countenance as no mere beauty-  could ever do and a desire to please,  which an unselfish disposition naturally'   helps   her    to    accomplish.  She  keeos    ?    sunny    face    turned  toward    the   world   with   her   own  troubles   pushed   far   away   out   of  s"ght, while she   does   her   best   to  assuage   those   of  others.       She   is  always the   same,   yet   ever   mono-  t >nous, as her originality is   one   of  her chief charms.       If she   marries,  she will love her husband   with   all  her   heart,     and   to   him   she   will  s?em a treasure far above the brilliant  bit changeable beauties who take a  man's  he^rt bv storm.  It is only   the    pretty    casement  window   which   can   afford   to    be  quite independent of blinds ; to  the  ordinary straight sash window they  are a very necessary finish and   are  more   or   less   answerable   for    the  general   appearance   of  the   house,  both inside  and   outside.       One   of  the most elegant blinds  is   the  festoon, usually made of  soft   silk   or  sateen and adapted specially for the  drawing room or boudoir, as it   has  the advansage of blending with the  decorations,   but   unfortunately     it  has    a    tendency-   to    collect   dust!  and quickly get a shabby, neglected j  appearance.
