E meeting of the Associate* Boards of Trade of  Southern British Columbia, held m Nelson last  was a very import nt gathering of the repre-  |tiv>: business men of the country, and will doubt*  productive of much good. A variety ofsubjects  iportance were intelligently discussed, and that  Ixverc  welt selected was evidenced by the unani-  |whtch prevailed.    There was none of that spirit  I* I.  frely sectional interest displayed-���the scope was  [[and liberal, and intended to promote the well-  tif Southern British Columbia rather than the  is of any particular section of this great area. A  jbntion of this sort must wield an influence for  s�� and all concerned are to lie congratulated on the  accomplished.  tr   .WTW^iMA- #  [tending settlers  in  British Columbia have had  jderahlc difficulty in   obtaining information as to  mds available for home staking.    The eircumlo-  [if of the Lands and Works Department has been  vere for the new-comer���indeed  it has proved a  le to manv an old-timer, and given rise toall sorts  (complimentary insinuations.     Something mifrht  ine to simplify matters.    At the convention of the  Haled boards of trade last wcck a   resolution was  ted recommending the government to have maps  hrveyed lands  placed in every government   office  !c information of the public,   i\m\ that said maps  ![>t corrected to date.    This \* so clearly the duty  P&6 department, that the recommendation is sure to  s'SS^flBpopted.      Such a course will   materiallv assist in  V��r\J^*U*ttlinti; iip. of the vacant lands.  The terms -.offered'  ^^'^ofsculers.  ^ t *  jta   ~*��  .11   >    ��v  k% 'j.  <.vr week- we had- something to .say "as To. the da n-  m^"'S outlook on'.the Kraser River, where the Japan-  "id Chinese   fishermen   managed  effectually to  *ie the whit.ema-'n   and Indian from participation  4  �� ..ot the leading industries of British Columbia���  .hcries       It was a surprise to us to  learn   that  v/ooo of tholse little fellows, and  about 4,600 of.  ilmond-eyed, cue-bedecked cousins"are handling  the salmon on the Fraser. The Japs are as much  alike as peas, and the small brownies are reported to  be taking advantage of this similarity, so that the naturalization papers taken out by one of the horde are,  made to do service for many. Some of these fellows  are said to obt&iuvfishiug licenses on the faith of papers  granted to others of the same nationality. If this be  true the license would of course be void, and if any  affidavit had been made to obtain it the person making  such affidav t would be liable to prosecution for per-  jurv. But this is a matter which neither the Dourin-  ion government which grants the license nor the Provincial government, which is charged with the responsibility of punishing infraction of the law, has any  machinery to investigate. Could not the Fishermen's  Union step in and do a little detective work in their  own interests ? It is hard enough that they should be  thrown out of employment by these little intruders,  but it lends a more serious complexion to the case to  know that this end Was Ik en accomplished by fraudulent means If a case of such fraud be brought to the  attention ofthe Attorney-General he would no doubt  take very prompt action to punish the offender, and  all or anv who abetted in the offense  The liquor problem  is one which the civilized nations of the world have been struggling with for years,  and yet it is apparently no nearer a satisfactory solution than it was  a couple of decades ago.      The demoralizing effects of the traffic are painfully visible on  all hands, and while public sentiment is even,'where in  favor of reducing the consumption of intoxicants, the  means adopted  towards this end have been more or  less abortive.    Prohibition has been adopted in some  of the provinces of Canada and in states in the Union,  but nowhere can these measures be pronounced a decided success,     ft would appear as if the manufacture  of liquor must be put a stop to if temperance is to prevail.      Of course much can be accomplished,   and is  being accomplished,   in an educatioral way by instilling into the -.minds of the rising generation   the evils  of drunkenness.    Whenever the suggestion is made to  suppress t he liquor '���������'traffic-''", the" question of revenue is  invariably raised       But there appears to be a general  vtendency in the  direction of making up the  revenue  deficit from other  sources of taxation       Seeing that  the governments of the different countries derive so  large a revenue from the liquor traffic, one would naturally expect that they would see that the business is  carried on honestly���that certain wholesome restrictions enjoined on other lines of business be enforced  in the liquor trade.     Yet the liquor dealer enjoysV--fair;;  more privileges than any other man in business.    His  premises are allowed to remain open   longer than the  hours which law or custom assigns to others.

The bitterest feeling has prevailed between  the two communities, one even going the length o  blowing up the bridge leading to the other.

The opinion was given iu  reference to a petition from the mine owners asking  for its disallowance on the ground that it is unconstitutional.  Copper is selling at 17 cents and still going up,  with a demand exceeding the supply. How much  money this advance will pour into the pockets of  mine-owners can be seen from the fact that, while  the production ofthe Trail creek division only increased from 5^2327011 pounds in 1898 to 5,693,889  pounds in 1899, the value increased from $629,411 to  $996,43i-   ASSAYERS' SUPPLIES.

For  a time Selma was happy in this new spere ; especially  since she could forsake school-teaching and become  mistress of a gaudy house, when .Ljewis Babcock toqk\  her for better or for worse.-/ But discontentment began to seethe in her soul, when she found that family  traditions were provokingly old in Ben ham ; and that  unless ' home-owner lived on a certain street, and on  a certain side of that street, she could not mingle  socially with the elect.  Selma 'was not long married until good and sufficient  cause arose to justify her in seeking a divorce, which  she had difficulty in obtaining. Without much delay,  she again tried matrimony, .this time >ith Wilbur  Littleton, a New York architect/"brainy and according! v more congenial ; for Seima was intensely  ambitious intellectually, and had a great idea of .her  own mental capacity. She was equally ambitious  (or social success, though she spent a life-time trying  to stifle and conceal this longing, realizing that she  was not quite socially fit. ' In cold-blooded fashion.��  she used every one in her path as means to an end.  Wilbur Littleton was ready to do much to her, but  alasi he progressed too slowly in his profession, and  was unwilling to sacrifice thehigh ideals of his art by  building architectural ".hotch-potches" and thus  make money more readily, that his wife might keep  pace with Mrs. Gregory Williams, the one woman  *ho filled Selma with a fierce envy. Therefore  Semla ignobly charged her husband with neglect oi  his duty to her, and the oft-repeated accusation iu  time broke his spirit. To save complications and to  give this smalbsouied woman every chance to attain  the heights, the author allowed Littleton to die ; and  great is" thepitv, for be was the fine character of the  story His death lift Selma free to marry the lawyer,  who obtained her release from bondage as Mrs Babcock.  As Mrs. James O Lyons, the wife of a successful  political! with a sentorship as gaol, Selma believed  she could go no higher. She was ecstatic on the  nishtofherhusbawrs election when thecrowd gathered  about his house to cry out their congratulations.  Together thev stood upon the balcony, and as Selma  listened to his peroration "she felt that he was speaking for them both and that he was expressing^ the  yearning intention of her soul to attempt and preform  great tilings. She stood gazing straight be tore her,  with her faraway, seraph look, as though she were  penetrating the future even into Paradise." Robert  Orant tells us nothing further o( Selma ; that is the  last glimpse readers are given ofthis unusual character.

Perhaps at the present day the most famous library  in the world is in the British museum, London. It  is not the largest nor the most ancient, but it is  catalogued with such marvelous accuracy and is so  generally up-to-date that it outranks all others. It  started originally with a gift of 50,000 books to the  nation by Sir Hans Slocan, but became truly great in  1757, when King George IL presented it the prince-  less collection of books and manuscripts which had  been made by his predecessors Uther magnificent  gifts from royalty followed There is also a law that  of each book published and entered at Stationer's hall  there must be a copy deposited in the museum:  The national library of France has tlie most  volumes of any. It is housed in a magnificant  building, but its foundations were laid in the Louvre;  when ] ,juis XL gaw a small collection of books.  The library was added to by the forfeited libraries  of private 'persons during the French revolution.  There are no fewer than 3,000*000 books in this  ^library, and the collection is constantly growing.  One of the most interesting libraries is the Bodleian  at Oxford. It takes its name from it founder, Sir  Thomas Bodley, who founded itin 1598, and since  that   time all   lovers of Oxford   have added  to it.  fc^nVl*.'**���"-.������>  i ��� ;* 11; 'iK.--r,:iH a/% WF^M n��W. - ���'���" ~V i**��o.��  A GREAT BARGAIN  0^  The Postoffice, General Store hiu; Kesi-  dcncc at Hal!
