We often hear of the ingratitude of the public,    and   instances    in    confirmation    are    so  numerous that the point  must  be  conceded���  the public are ungrateful : but it is generally in  small   thinsrs   that   this    ingratitude    shows  itself.     A .man who truly  and conscientiously  serves his country or a particular cause invariably receives his full share  of appreciation, at  least. . While there are those who  will judge  another by the success   achieved, the majority  of men whose opinions are worth   having,  and  whose support counts for something, will give  full credit for an honest effort put  forth, even  thousrh it be not crowned with success.     The  public are critical, and once a man enters into  public life he may rely upon it that his course  will be closely watched.    True,   motives  will  often be imputed to him which he never calculated on, but when he reverses his programme  he ought to be prepared to justify his course.  It is painful to observe how  many men   occupying   prominent   positions   fall    when   they  deceive   themselves   by   thinking    they   can  deceive   the   public.     For  a number of years  the   Hon.  D.  W.   Higgins held  a   prominent  place in   provincial politics,   and   enjoyed the  confidence   of   his   constituents   and    his   coworkers.    As Speaker of the Provincial Legislature his rulings  were  respected  as fair and  impartial, and when he stepped upon the floor  of the house to take part in a debate his opinions  were  respected   and   invariably   carried  great weight, inasmuch as   they   were looked  upon as the   honest expressions  of an  honest  man.     This fact flattered the hon. gentleman's  vanity, and made him long for greater power.  He was without portfolio, while men he looked  upon as his inferiors   in   intellect   were taken  into the cabinet.    This   was gall   and wormwood to the hon. gentleman,  and,  seeing that  the government's tenure of office was secure'  in a weak moment he cut himself adrift from  the party in the vain hope of being received  with open arms by the Opposition. How sore  must be his disappointment now to find himself disowned by his old-time friends in the  house, ignored by his constituents, arid given  the cold shoulder by the Opposition. The  man who was once respected by all is he  whom nobody will, now have. ,. Politically, the  Hon. D.".W. Higgins has committed suicide.  A false step, deliberate!}' taken, is one which  it is hard to retrace. In severing his connection with the government party Mr. Higgins  assigned as his chief reason that he did not  agree with its railway polic}^, yet he voted  with the government on all the railway measures submitted. Inconsistency such as this  was of course duly noted. Playing hunted in  vain for another constituency to take him up,  he is forced to return to his old love���Esqui-  malt, but even there they will have none of  him. He tries to make the people of the district believe that if they do not want him  others do, and that he could have been in the  cabinet years ago had he so desired. No  cloubt the hon. g-entleman's imagination is  pla\dng cruel pranks with him. In this connection the following from the Vernon News  will be interesting: "Ex-Speaker Higgins  declared in a recent speech at Esquimait that  when in Vernon last .year he had been besieged  by requests to run for this constituency, but  had refused to desert Esquimait until Esquimait deserted hirn. We thought we knew  something of Vernon, but it appears that Mr.  Higgins evidently possesses knowledge that  throws us completely into the" shade. We  fancy, however, that he must on this occasion  have slightly strained his imagination, as a  diligent enquiry around town has failed to  unearth a single ' besieger.' "  Mr. W. F. Robertson has been appointed  provincial metallurgist, as successor to Mr. W.  A. Carlyle. He will enter on his duties at  once if the British America Corporation don't  ���buy him over.  Sa-mi-en, an eighteen-year-old Indian lad  from Tatla lake, will be hanged at Kamloops  on the 29th July, for the murder of a young-  Englishman named Lewis G. Elkins, on 30th  December last. The case was tried at Clinton  before Mr. Justice Drake, and the evidence  went to show that the Indian visited the store  of his victim at Tatla Lake, shot him dead,  and then proceeded to dress himself up in a  suit of the dead man's clothing, steal a horse  and endeavor to make good  his escape.     The  prisoner stated that he was drunk at the time,  and did not. know, what he was doing. Of  this there can be little dobbt, seeing that he  locked the store door and left the ke}' at the  hut of another Indian, where it was subsequently found. It is yerj<T generally held that:  drunkenness; is no extenuation in case of  crime, but rather an aggravation. This is so  under ordinary circumstances, but in the case  of a young Indian it does not carry equal  force. A small quantity of whiskey sets the  average Indian mad, and under its influence  the worst traits of character are brought out.  A determined effort should be made to find out  who supplied this unfortunate man with that  which deprived him of his senses, and if the  guilty party can be found he should be treated  as an accomplice in the crime.  It is announced tint the sale of the Le Roi  mine to the British America Corporation still  hangs fire. Some of , the stockholders���a  majority, it is claimed���object, on the ground  that the price offered is too low���$3,000,000.  Berlin is shuddering at the grewsome discovery that there is a trade understanding  between professional nurses and undertakers.  Competition among.the latter has raised the  regular commission paid to a nurse to 30 pei  cent of the cost of a funeral. The fact that a  doctor has made this state of things public,  with the. suspicion that the undertakers may  have to square with that profession also, adds  to the cheerfulness of Berlin patients.  The early closing movement has extended  to Vernon, where all the stores close at 6.30  each evening. As was .formerly the case in  Nelson, the storekeepers of Vernon kept their  doors open as long as there was a chance of  doing- business. The new arrangement there,  as here, works satisfactorily. There may be  a little inconvenience at the start, but doing  business during business hours and in a business way is bound to prove the correct  system.  Urice Ellison is the choice of the people of  Vernon to represent them in the local legislature. Mr. Ellison is a staunch government  supporter, and as such he goes before the  people. He is so well and favorably known  that his election is assured, although he will  be opposed by Mr. Donald Graham, who for  the past four years has represented the constituency, voting and working with the opposition. The following, from the Vernon News,  shows the state of public feeling in the district :  " The people will return  the government can-  ���MM1HHJMHS11  ��i^wa^y^iHJJmuw^^  s*5��'5��^^ THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  U; i  . I   !  Mi  I*  i.  'rr  i ���  %  ��i <  'i '  :i  ) !  didate, and Mr. Ellison : will displace Mr.  Graham in the provincial house. We are not  saying this because we are in favor of the government candidate ; it is not a case of the  wish being father of the thought, but we give,  it as our deliberate conviction, from our knowledge of public feeling throughout East Yale,  that a very large proportion of the electors  are tired to death of the pitiably weak and  futile methods of the opposition, whose record  during the past session has been such as to  bring forth the blush of shame upon the faces  of those who in past years gave them support.  j >  A horrible case was heard at  the  criminal  assizes in Victoria last week.     It was that of a  young woman named Martha Wolf,  who was  charged   with  -the   murder   of   Mrs.   Charles  Marsden.     The  evidence   went to   show that  the   prisoner was "living at the   house of her  victim, and succeeded by her presence in making   life very   unpleasant  in   the little home.  She seemed to have more influence over Marsden   than1 had his wife,   and   was   frequently  ordered to leave by the troubled woman. Finally  the Wplf girl  did consent to take   her departure, and having made arrangements  for   taking up her quarters elsewhere, she returned to  the Marsden home  for her   trunk.     A wordy  quarrel ensued between the ytwo women, during   which   Wolf  took   a   lighted   .lamp   and  threw   it  at  Mrs.   Marsden.      The oil-spread  over  the unfortunate woman's  clothing,   and  set it   ablaze,  and while she lay writhing in  agony    on   the   lawn    her   fiendish    assailant  looked   calmly   on  without putting forth the  slightest   endeavor to   extinguish the flames.  The Victoria jury found   Martha Wolf guilty  of manslaughter, with  a strong  recommendation to mercy,  and she was sentenced to five  years' imprisonment.      A drunken   Indian is  awaiting execution in Kamloops for shooting  a man who is  said to have ravished   his ten-  year-old   sister,   and   Martha   Wolf,   for   cremating an otherwise injured woman,  is to be  imprisoned for five years.    This is justice and  niercj'J  The Nation says that the Nelson Tribune  stands without a rival in the matter of being  able to detect deep-laid plans on the part of  the provincial government to subvert the inalienable privileges of the common people,  and adds : " The latest, foul, accursed plot of  the Government is the investigation into the  affairs of the Lands and Works Department.  Here, in Victoria, the men who made the  charges are now engaged in the ignominious  task of ' crawling,' but the eagle eye of the  Tribune editor has discovered that one of the  witnesses, Mr. R. F. Tolmie, ' admitted correspondence regarding crown grants having  been issued for an impioper consideration.'  Mr. Tolmie did not admit anything of the  kind, and the Tribune could just as well as  not have interviewed Mr. Tolmie on that  point. Having taken the opposite course���  that of putting words in Mr. Tolmie's mouth  that he never uttered���the Tribune should not  complain if called upon to (, produce its authority for its false accusation, or suffer the  consequences. The Vfreedom^bTthe press ' becomes a myth and a menace to society when  irresponsible scribblers and falsifiers are permitted to run at large."  The British Columbia market is dull, sa}^  the B. C. Review, London, Eng., but b}^ no  means so weak as some would suppose, and  the latest reports from the Upper   Yukon  and  the British Columbia mining camps are so  satisfactory that the confidence of investors is  increasing every day. The closing prices oh  Thursday showed a fall in two instances only,  and they amply bear out the foregoing statements. The B.A.C. have this week touched  the lowest point yet recorded, and this in spite  of the reported purchase of the Le Roi on  w7hat would seem very excellent terms. The  recent stoppage in that mine is of little account  and has-had no influence on prices, but some  doubt is felt whether the B.A.C. has the  money wherewith to purchase this mine, and  there also seems to be a suspicion whether the  two fractional claims, the Black Bear and  Ivanhoe, are included in the purchase price,  which is less than has been offered in other  quarters.  This is the wTay a coast paper sums up the  political situation. " It must be confessed by  even the Opposition that the Government has  confidence in the future of the Province. Else  why would the expenditure of large sums of  money be undertaken for public works and the  development of her mineral and agricultural  resources ?''  City Engineer McCulloch has not yet reported as to the quantity cf explosives stored  in the powder magazine, or the probable effect  of an explosion. It may be that he is awaiting  the publication of the revised voters list so as  to be in a position to estimate how provincial  politics would be effected by an explosion.  A good cemetery site is available, if the ratepayers will but vote the necessary funds to  purchase it and put the place in order.  Should the by-law be killed tomorrow7, there  is no decent place in which to bury it.  "A Subscriber," in another column, asks a  series of questions affecting the management  of the public schools of Nelson. There is a  great deal of force in his suggestion that good  schools do much to attract permanent residents to a city or district, but we cannot  agree with him when he insinuates that the  little ones do not make satisfactory progress  here, and on this point we speak from personal  knowledge of the attention bestowed upon the  children. Our teaching staff, although underpaid, and perhaps overworked at times, are  fully qualified, and parents and the public  generally would have been afforded an opportunity of judging of the result of their labors  had sickness not prevented the holding of a  public examination.    It is true that the school  accommodation is not all  that   might   reasonably be desired, but then   it must be  remembered that it  is only   of comparatively recent  date that the attendance has grown to present  proportions.     The Provincial government has  voted   the   necessary   funds   to  enlarge   the  school   buildings.    There are  not,  of course,  the   conveniences. ���', and   facilities    for   school  instruction   here   that   are   enjoyed   in  larger  communities, and allowances should be made  for this, but with such material as   there is at  hand,   we   have^ no  hesitation   in saying that  the  best possible  results  are   attained.    The  action of the trustees in closing   the schools as  sOon as scarlet fever m&de its appearance will  be generally   conceded as a step in the right  direction,   but   having   ascertained   that   the  cases were few in number and that the sufferers were duly .quarantined, there was no further   necessity for keeping   the doors   closed,  and, making   the   unwelcome   announcement  that  operations   would  not be resumed until  the end of August.   ,, At least, so  the majority  of parents think, and they have as much interest in the welfare of the   children as have the  trustees.  The war news of the past week is not very  definite. A lot o�� imaginary battles took  place, but no real fightings. The fight  appears to be chiefly carried on between the  newspaper correspondents on "paper. There  was apparently a slight engagement ac Santiago de Cuba, and both sides claim a victo^.  Some men wrould rather die than lie, but the  piesent trouble shows that they are a big  minority.  It is said that the members of the Opposition  are about to advertise for a duly qualified  leader. This may be only an empty rumor,  but the suggestion emanates from the party,  and it might do worse than act upon it.  Man}^ a better cause has been lost for the want  of a competent leader.  " How we do things in Manitoba" is said to  be the title of a lecture to be delivered by Hon.  Joe Martin in Vancouver at an early date. It  is also hinted that ex-priest Ruthven, at  present on the stump in Victoria, will preside  over the meeting, which is "for men only."  It is to be hoped Mr. Martin's friends will prevail upon him to postpone the lecture until  after the elections in July. The battle in the  province ought to be fought without introducing Dominion party lines and if these are not  to be forced into the contest, why should we  be troubled with pointers as to " How we do  things in Manitoba."  Dominion Day will be celebrated in Nelson  on a grander scale than ever. The citizens  have contributed something like $2,500 to  make the occasion a memorable one, and as  the arrangements are in the hands of efficient  committees an excellent programme may be  looked for. Thousands of people will .flock  into Nelson to participate in the celebration,  as the attractions to be provided are irresist-  able.      The  various   railway   and  steamboat  'i'-S ���wrocs^rcswEfOTff^sftW  THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  lines touching this point will afford every  facility to the pleasure seekers, and once we  get the people here we know how to entertain  t lem. Attention has frequently been called to  the rapid progress of Nelson���the metropolis  of the Kootenays, and it will be well for the  city that our visitors be afforded an opportunity of seeing for themselves how we are  forging ahead. Seeing is believing. Celebrations of this order are beneficial in many  p respects. They infuse a wholesome patriotism,  promote friendly intercourse, develop a spirit  -of commendable rivalry, and enthuse the lovers  of healthy recreation and. sport. What is  worth doing is worth doing well, and the good  people of Nelson may be depended upon not to  take an3^ half measures on such an occasion  as this.  Tomorrow the ratepa3^ers of Nelson will  have a series of by-laws submitted to them,  and it will be for them to sa3^ whether or not  they will shoulder the responsibility of purchasing the existing, electric light plant and  franchise at a cost of somewhere in the neigh-  borhood of $40,000, of voting $10,000 for the  extension of the sewerage S37stem, a like sum  for waterworks improvement, and $5,000 for a  cemeter3'. As far as the cemetery is concerned,  it is most desirable that this b3^-law should  pass The present graveyard would be a disgrace to a 1137 community, and although it has  been much improved of late, it is absolutely"  impossible to make it a desirable place for the  purpose. The space is inadequate, the site  objectionable, and the .arrangements niost  unsatisfactory. There should be no oppostiion  to this b3'T-law, especiall3r considering that an  excellent location for a graveyard can* be  secured at $20 per acre. A plentiful and  wholesome suppW of water is essential to the  health of the community, and mone37 spent in  this direction is money well spent. As far as  the by-law for the extension of the sewerage  system is concerned, it will doubtless meet  with considerable opposition, owing to the  fact that the disposal of sewerage is a subject  not 3ret satisfactorily settled. The natural  means of disposal is by emptyung into the lake  ���and this is what is now being done, but it  is done under protest. The Provincial Board  of Health, who are the recognized authority on  these matters, object to this means of disposal  of sewerage matter, and Mr. Mohan, a sanitary engineer of considerable eminence, was  sent up 03^ the government to investigate and  report. His report has not yet been made  public, so far as we are aware. The system in  Nelson has been laid with the idea that it  would empty into the lake, and should any  other means of disposal be insisted upon it  may be rendered almost useless. It would,  perhaps, be as well to defer this matter until it  is known how the sewerage is to be disposed  of. A similar course, it seems to us, might be  adopted with reference to the electric light  plant. The anxiety displayed by Mayor  Houston and certain of the aldermen who are  largely interested in the Nelson Electric Light  Co. to make a hurried bargain with the citizens ought to be   sufficient in itself to arouse  suspicion. The ratepayers will naturally want  to know-what they are to get for their money.  The37 get the franchise of the company and the  plant, but what is the plant worth ? Up to a  few months ago the light supplied to consumers was of the worst class, and it was no  unfamiliar sight to see coal oil lamps burning  in stores supposed to be illuminated by electricity. Some improvements were then made  ,at the works, with the result that at present a  very/excellent light is being supplied. But is  the plant a modern plant? Is it sufficient'to  extend the system ? What is it worth ? Are  the ratepayers quite sure that if the37 take it  over it will be to discover that its day of  practical usefulness is drawing to an end, and  that all that can be shown for their moae3^ is  primitive machinety and the right to try and  run it. They will also do well to consider  that there is a very powerful and up-to-date  electric works at Bonnington Falls, some few  miles from Nelson, and that this company is  stretching wires all over the Kootenays,  supplying power and light to municipalities  and mines at a: much lower figure than separate and distinct electric outfits could furnish  it. Far more favorable terms can be made, we  have no doubt, with the Bonnington Falls  people than with Messrs. Houston & Co.  Then there is the certainty that within a few  months more cheap coals will be supplied over  the Crow's Nest Pass railway, and seeing that  the by-products of gas will more than pa3^ for  its manufacture, it is quite probable that that  illuminant will in the ver37 near future be supplied to the people of Nelson at such a low  rate as to practically shut out electric lighting  from the market. All these are considerations  which the ratepa\7ers will do well to ponder  over before casting their vote in favor of the  $40,000 by-law which will be submitted to  them tomorrow. Then, as we have said, the  anxiety displa37edb37' Mayor Houston and the  members of the aldermanic board wrho are  financially interested in the electric light  works, to effect the sale of the concern, is suspicious. So anxious is his worship the ma3^oi  that the deal should go through that he telegraphs from Toronto an amended proposal :  " The city can have the Nelson Electric  Light Company's plant, etc., for par value of  stock issued, with twelve per cent, and the  debts of the cornpai^ added, which will make  the price between $35,000 and $36,000."  And his worship's official organ, the Tribune,  ven7 significantly points out that "The additional $3,000 or $4,000 which the city council  is asking to borrow would therefore be available for necessary extensions to the S3~stem,"  and probably repairs and additions to the  plant. The ratepa3^ers are asked to bu3r a  " pig in a poke," and a purchase of this class  is not likely to be made with their consent.  THE CITY COUNCIL.  The weekly meeting of the City Council was  held on Monday afternoon, Actkig Mayor  Teetzel presiding, and others present being Aldermen Gilker. Madden and Hillyer.  City Engineer McCulloch reported that he  accompanied   by   Mr.   Fletcher,    C.P.R   land  agent, visited the proposed cemetery site near  Cottonwood Creek, and found that there had  been some misconception as to exact location.  The site originally selected by the special committee of the council was available.  The matter was deferred to next meeting,  when it is hoped some definite action will be  taken. < =   ,  The subject of providing a dumping ground  for the cit3r scavengers was discussed. It appears that there is at present no dumping place  the C.P.R. having closed   up the old grounds.  A letter was read from John; Myles asking  to be appointed city bill-poster, and offering to  pay a license for the privilege. He also asked  permission to udvertise on the watering cart.  Action deferred. '  L. Pogue asked to be allowed to erect a one-  storey frame building on Victoria Street, between Josephine and Hall Streets, same to have  corrugated iron roof.  Aid. Hill3rer gave notice that he would at  next meeting introduce a b^^-law to amend the  Fire Limits By-law, and this would meet   Mr.  PogUe's case.  Aid. Hillyer also gave notice to amend  the  Trades License By-Law.  The City Clerk pointed out that there was  nothing in the b3^-laws regulating the quantity  of coal oil that might be stored on premises  within the city limits.  Aid. Hiltyer did not think it a'1137 use to try  to regulate these matters, as none of the b3re-  lavys were properly enforced. In this connection he moved that the city clerk be asked to  communicate with the water commissioner, to  ascertain b3r what authority that official had  reduced the water rate levied in accordance  with the provisions of the b\r-law.  The Ma3'or : The rate is fixed 03^ by-law.-.  Aid. Hiltyer was aware of this, and that was  why he called attention to the matter. Some  parties were charged full rates and others were  not.  The City Engineer was granted an extension  of time to report as to the quantity of explosives stored in the powder "magazine.  Mr. Chas. A. Waterman appeared before the  board on behalf of the Dominion Day Celebr ���-  tion Committee, aud asked what the council  intended to do in the matter���how much the3'  intended to contribute towards the funds. He  suggested that the council should undertake to  furnish the music for the celebration and provide a prize for the hose reel competition. The  committee had $2,000 collected, but the3' would  need ever37 cent of it, as they were preparing a  ver3r elaborate programme.  The Ma\7or asked what the probable cost of  the'music would be.  Mr. Waterman replied that it cost $150 last  year. He explained that the committee intended to advertise the celebration thoroughty  and it was hoped to secure special excursion  rates on the railway and steamboat lines. It  would be a great advertisement for Nelson.  After some discussion it was decided to donate $200 to the celebration.  A number of accounts were passed, and some  routine business having been disposed of the  board adjourned.

THE MARK OF CAIN.  yy  Arti5ts Materials at Thomson Stationery Co., L'td.  We were seated in the lobby of a little hotel  some two years,  ago,   discussing   as   travelers  are prone to do, a ver3r wide  range- of topics.  The conversation   gradually   drifted   into;  the  question of hypnotism or the various influences  of one mind   over   another.      Each   one   pre-,  seut'in the circle had -.casually' expressed   his  opinion-upon1 this subject except  a   handsome  traveling,salesman,   probabl3'    35    3-ears   old,  who was'familiarly known as " Whitney Sounders."      This name was given  him owing   to  the fact that his splendid head of hair was permanent^^ and absolutely white.      During   the  slight lull in   the   talk    Saunders,    who    had  evidently been drinking, yet' was   still   cognizant of all that was   being   said,   straightened  himself up in his chair and "without any   ceremony  launched   into   the   following:    stranee  story, which   I| shall    endeavor   to   repeat   as  nearly as possible, word for word :  I have heard several of 37ou men say,,- he  commenced, that yoii did not believe in hypnotism, mesmerism, telepathy or anything of  the kind. Well, 3^011 are not compelled to do  so, but let me tell 3^ou a story and show you  that "you know nothing about what }~ou are  discussing.  There lived in a small town   in   New   York  state some 3rears ago   two   brothers   with   five  3'-ears' difference in   their   ages.      They   were  sworn enemies, owiiig to some dimcult37 in the  adjustment of property   which   had   been   left  them.      The elder of   the    two    men    was    a  widower, and the    loss    of    his    young   wife,  together   with   his   unnatural   hatred   for   his  brother, had soured him on   life,   and   almost  ���made a recluse  of   him.       He   had,   however,  one companion, an Italian by birth,   who   had  formerly loved the  girl which   his   friend had  married.     These two were constantly together.  The young brother was accounted a good   fellow generally7���that is,  he   spent   and   wasted  his money7, and had scores of pleasant weather  friends.       In   the   same   village   lived   an old  phyrsician, Dr. Gray by7 name,   who,    in   addition to shaving been  the   family   physician   of  both the brothers, was a man  of  noble   parts,  learned far bey^qnd   his. time,   and   skilled   in  sciences and arts which are yet in their infancy.  He was ay profound student   of  the  doctrines  as laid down by7 Mesmer and others, but   held  any- such abilities in this direction that he had  acquired as sacred as the professional confidence  of his patients.      Dr. Gray had long   tried   to  patch up    the    differences    between    the   two  3roung men, whom he regarded almost as sons.  His efforts met with little encouragement from  the    elder,    although    the    younger     brother  expressed himself as perfectly willing to   meet  the other half way7.    Thus matters stood when  the village in which chey7 lived was shaken   to  its foundation one morning   when   the   people  woke to learn that the elder brother   had  during the night been foully7 murdered in his bed.  The    alarm   was    first    given    Irv    the   mui-  derer man's valet, and   the   police   were   notified b3r his   Italian  friend   Glava.      Suspicion  pointed but one wa3r���the man was   murdered  by7   his   brother,   the   motive   being   revenge;  The younger   brother   wras   arrested.*".'- When  found, he was in a dazed condition   and  exhibited every evidence of guilt.      He was imprisoned  and  eventually   brought to trial.     The  evidence was conclusive ;  not a link was missing.      He'.was convicted, and after being sentenced  to   hang   was   taken   back   to   prison.  During the progress of the   trial   the   prisoner  could not be induced lo speak a   single   word.  Absolute silence was the only response received  to all of Dr. Gray's "kind, offers   of  assistance  After thetyoung man's sentence had been   pronounced, his brother's former   friend,   Glava,  announced his departure   for   London   for   an  indefinite stay.      Now, a  strange   thing   happened just previous to Glava's departure.     He  called at the prison where the young murderer  was confined and was   permitted   to   enter but  he remained but a few minutes.     Then he left  the jail and  was  no  more seen  in   the   town.  Glava had no sooner gone than   thee prisoner  commenced a great screaming and shouting to  the guard, "Stop that man, stop that   man !"  he'yelled.  They were the first words  that crossed   his  lios in    davs,    but his    commands   were   not  heeded.     Gradually his yells subsided.   When  next the guard appeared at the prisoner's cell,  he was met with the request that Dr. Gray be  sent for.      This request was granted, and   not ,  long after the physician responded.    Dr. Gray  found the prisoner in an entirely-changed condition.      His seal of silence was broken.      He  seemed perfectly rational, but could not understand   his imprisonment.      He   could   get   no  answers to his questions from the guards, and  in his extremity, he explained,   had   sent   for  his old friend, who,   he  felt  sure,   could   help  him.        Upon    close    observation    Dr.    Gray-  noticed that the j'-ounsr man's face  was deadlv  pale, and there was   an   anxious   haunted   air  about him which boded ill for the condition of  his   mind.-     The  prisoner told Dr. Gray that  he had  a frightful   dream,   and   that   he had  been   awakened   within  a  few   hours   from a  deep sleep to find himself in  a   prison cell and  gazing into   Glava's coal   black   eyres.       The  shock was awful.    "I dreamt," he continued,  "that last night, when I had gone to my home  and retired to my bed, Glava  appeared  at my  bedside.      He   bade me rise aud dress, at the  same time fixing upon me the   most diabolical  look that I ever saw.    Without knowing why,  I obeyred his orders.   "Come with me," Glava  said.       "I  followed him.       Pie led  the   way  straight to my brother's house, in which I had  not been for years,  and admitted   us   with   a  key.      Once inside we mounted the first fliefht  of steps towards my brother's bedroom.    Outside of the door Glava   thrust  into my hand a  long Italian stiletto.       He   then   opened   the  door, and raising   his  right  hand   to   its   full  height above his head, glided across   the floor  toward the bed.      Imitating every   motion he  made I followed him.   Upon reaching his bedside he took his place at the foot, and   I  stood  beside him, nearest to the head.      After muttering some unintelligible  words,   quick   as a  flash he brought his rie;ht arm down from its  upright position with awful force. Again I  did follow his precise movements, and, to my  horror, the stiletto which I still clutched iii  my hand buried to , the hilt in my own brother's breast. I felt his blood spurt upon my  hands, and then fell into a deep sleep, with  his death rattle sounding in my ears. For  what and how did I get there ?"  When this fearful narrative was finished the  .old physician turned-away-in terror and disgust. Mentally he determined that the  prisoner, after killing his brother, wTas feigning insanity to shield himself from the consequences of his crime. He bowed his head  in his hands. Sudden^ an awful suspicion  flashed through his mind. "Could it be possible, '' he ejaculated,,,"-a-murderer with his  hands but not with his mind ?" Certain  long forgotton facts'crowded into his mind to  give stability to his growing belief* - Then it  came Dr. Gray's'painful-duty to tell thetyoung  man the whole truth. :\It was. done in his  own noble way7 and 'with the comforting assurance that God mightyet prepare a wa37'of proving the prisoner's innocence.  The Old man then took his leave, with a  look of such strange determination upon his  face as is rarely seen upon the human coun-'  tenance.

For four days, so his family tell,   Dr.   Gray-  never left his locked room to take a morsel   of  food or a drop of   nourishment.      During the  first 24 hours of this time he might have been  see.i poring over packages  of  old   manuscript  or reading-long extracts from many dusty vol-"  umnes.      Finally the last batch of manuscript  was put back into his   strong   chest,   the   last  old volume was returned to its place upon   the  shelf.     Then the old gentleman threw himself  upon his bed   without   removing   his  clothes,  and  seemingly   sank   off into   a   deep    sleep.  Many and numerous were the   calls   made   for  him during the next three days, but all efforts  to obtain an answer   from   within, the  locked  door were without avail.      At the   expiration  of the fourth day when even his    family   were  becoming  alarmed,   though his   peculiarities,  the old physician appeared once   more   in   the  family circle.      His face was drawn,   his   eyelids were heavy, his hair appeared even whiter  than ever before, but his face shone   with   the  light of a  great   victory   achieved.      Rushing  up to his dear old wife, and with tears   of joy  running down his face, he   made   the   following remarkable declaration :  " Thank God, it is done! They will  never hang-the boy after they receive the true  confession which I compelled the true murderer, Antoine Glava, to write in his cabin,  while the steamer was in mid-ocean." The  doctor was right. Two weeks later there  w7as received in that town by the police  authorities a document which had been found  addressed in the cabin of a m m who committed suicide by jumping from an ocean  steamer. The document was in the nature  of a curious confession :  Blank Books, Letter Books and Memos at Thomson  Stationery Co., Ltd. THE NELSON .ECONOMIST.  " It is of no use.

What does the chap do but   go to  Paddy Mvies an'   tell him the   race was off���  that Billv Kerrins" wouldn't run him, but that  he wouldn't moind running Andy Furlong.   It  soon got round town  that   Billy Herring   was  backing out ov tlie race wid Paddy   Miles, an'  whin Billy7 herd it he got rale mad.       " Me to  back out !" say7s Billy, say^s he,   " Nevir !    I'll  give Paddy Miles ten yTards in   a hundred an'  bait him aisey7, or lose me goatee in the effort."

To the Editor of The Economist. c  Dear Str���As one interested in   the management of our public  schools,   might  I ask :  1st.     Isn't it true that children from  the coast  and   eastern    provinces   become    discouraged  with our schools here, and do   not advance in  their work as they7  should ?     2nd.     Can  it be  possible   that   some   parents   have   sent   their  children back to the  coast and   others   anticipate doing so because they7 think the  children  will lea.ru better there than here ?    3rd.   Could  there be any7 arrangements made to keep children at school who are well and have no sickness in the  family ?    4th.   Are our schools to  be closed five or six months in the year?   5th.  Would the waterworks, the electric   works or  the altitude be the cause of  all   this   trouble?  Before I came to Nelson I thought it was the  Athens   and the Chicago of  West Kootenay,  whrre   people   kept   their  families  while they7  did business in other parts  of the   district.     I  am afraid our population  will  not   increase  if  we have not well  conducted schools.���Yours  truly Subscriber.  Nelson, June 3,  1898.  [(1)  It may* be that  some  children   do not,  apparently, get on here as well as at the coast  or in the east, but we fear  it is  the children's  own fault, not the fault of   the   system  or the  teaching.     (2)    We are aware of a couple of  such cases, but the reasons   are  not as stated.  (3)  Yes ; if the parents will petition the Board  of  School Trustees.     (4)  We   hope   not,  and  incline to the belief that the vacations are too  long.    Since   the    schools    have   been   closed  more   than   a month  earlier than   usual, they  should open a month sooner than usual.���Ed.] .rzr  THE NELSON ECONOMIST.  y'.i   ''. r '; I  y yy  \U\ yy  \i i ������^a '  If v. yyy-  It  V    jl','".'<  -! .; Uya  U st  y  111!  11 ��   ii i. v.;  si ���; fc S  jy  ���)��� if.  i';v =E;  Vi I  m  mi  II.  m  if  m  IK1   .  y.fy:.\  mil  -I'lrfj.  \iii:.py  ���Ml  111!    ,  1 flxi  ���im  FAIR   PLAY/SPORT.  - To the Editor of The Economist.  Sir.���My   attention   has   been called   to  a  communication signed ' - Fair Play,' '.������ appearing  in the Kaslo News.     The writer  thinks  that " a i,600 yard race between Dill of K>slo  and Campbell of Nelson would be one of the  greatest drawing cards, of the Kootenay," and  suggests that it wo'uld'.be "a good idea for the  Nelson committee to,; hang up a purse of say  $100   for a  100 yard race between these two  men."     Now,   sir,   why 'should   the   Nelson  committee hang up the purse ?    If Mr, Dill or  his   Kaslo   admirers  think    he   can   run   our  Campbell let them put up $50 or $100 on their  man   and we will put up a like sum on ours.  This is my idea of fair play.

We will   be  happy    to   hear   from   Kaslo   on   this point.  Yours, Sport.  Nelson, June 6, 1898*  THE   DELEGATION.  To.- the Editor of The Economist .  Dear Sir :���On the return of Messrs. John  Houston and J. A. Gibson, delegates from the  city of Nelson to Ottawa,  might I suggest it  would be well for them to call a public meet-  i lg of the citizens and inform  us as to  what  they   achieved while   in the   capital,   for the  benefit of our town.

Yours truly7,  A Ratepayer.  OVERCROWDING.  It is an old saying that  one half the   wrorld  does not know how the other  half lives.      In  all large cities one naturally  expects   to   find  overcrowding   and   poverty.      The   slums   of  London have become famous.     Deckens in his  day did much to call attention to the misery and  vice which prevailed in the congested districts  of the great metropolis, and as a result   of his  good work many7  improvements   intended   to  better the condition of the poor w7ere inaugurated.   Tenement houses were built and rentals  fixed at so low a rate as to bring  them, it was  hoped, within the reach  of  the   poorest,   and  whole districts of dilapidated  buildings were  cleared, to the great benefit, no doubt, of those  who occupied them.   Then the ever increasing  number   of  charitable   and   philanthropic   institutions, whose agents confined  their attention almost exclusivsfy to the  slums,  were, it  was thought,   ample to   cope    with   poverty,  while the police  department   attended   to   the  vice.      However, these hopes have been ruth-  lessb7 dissipated of late, as  a result  of  a   systematic inspection of the slums.      The inspectors found a condition  of  things   worse   than  could well be imagined.     In one case a family  of eleven persons occupied  two  small   rooms,  in which they cooked, slept and lived.     There  were but two beds in the rooms, and  the chil  dren ranged in age from four to twenty years.  In another instance a family of six occupied a  single room, and lying on  a   miserable   pallet  in the corner was a poor woman about   to  become a mother, while the rest   of the   family-  were sitting down to their evening meal.  And  these were not exceptional  cases-���overcrowding is the rule, and not alone are single rooms  occupied  by  the  one  family,   but   not   infrequently were two or three families found living  together in one apartment.      Under such conditions as these it is not to be wondered at that  the criminal records of London are a standing  disgrace   to   Christian England,   or  that the  death rate in the slums is alarmingly high.  In  a certain quarter in   St.  Pancras the mortality  in one year reached the enormous rate of .70.1  per  thousand.       The  suffering   among  little  children from ophthalmia, scrofula,   and other  diseases is great.       As regards adults,   it was  found  that  in such   neighborhoods upon the  lowest   average every   workman   lost   about  twenty days in the year  from simple exhaustion.    And this in the capital of  good Christian England, which yearly   sends millions of  dollars  to  support,   civilize and   Christianize  the heathen !     I am pleased to learn that, the  condition of things having been made known,  a determined effort  will be  made to improve  matters, and that such men  as the following  have   signified   their   intention   of taking the  matter in hand :  The Archbishops of London,  Ely, Newcastle, and Lichfield,  Earl Cadogan,  Lord   George Hamilton,  Lord   Roberts,   Viscount  LandofT,   the Marquis   of Lansdowne,  the Right Hon. H. Chaplain, M.P., Henry M.  Stanley, M.P., the Marquis of Salisbur37,  the  Duke   of  Devonshire,  the Right  Hon.  A. J.  Balfour, the Duke of Argyll  and the Hon. J.  Chamberlain. Tento.  LOCAL NEWS.  Work is progressing favorably on the new  Baptist church.  .The friends of Boss Smith will be glad to  hear that his health is improving.  The writs for the new parliament have been  issued. Nominations must be sent in by June  22nd.    July 9th is fixed as polling day.  The Fire-Limit B3'-law is to be again  amended next week. People are asking- when  it is likely to be presented in  a finished form.  The fire brigade is having an occasional spin  with the hose reel and getting up a speed that  will astonish their visiting brethren on  Dominion Da3r,  The frogs of Nelson had a very noisy meeting the other night on the proposed site for  the local Chinatown. They croakingly declared their opposition to the presence of John  in their midst.  A proposal is made to do a little advertising  on the public watering cart. Such a practice  would not perceptably enhance the public  exchequer, and does not deserve encouragement. It is said a local dry goods firm would  like to utilize the vehicle as an advertising  medium. Dry goods would be out of place on  a watering cart.  Messrs. Ewert & Carrie, architects, Nelson,  have been declared the successful competitors  for the new city Hall at Kaslo. Their plans  were by far the best submitted.  Harry Lindley and his theatrical company  are expected to open an engagement in Nelson  in a couple of weeks. Harry is an old favorite and is sure of a warm reception in Nelson.  The company has been touring the province  and meeting with great success.  The Rossland eleven will meet the Nelson  eleven on the cricket crease ,oh the recreation  ground on Saturday afternoon, when a lively  game is expected.  A largely attended meeting was held in the  firehall last night, when an excellent programme of sports was submitted to the Dominion Day celebration committee. Special committees were appointed to carry out the programme.  It is reported that A. G. M. Spragge, of  Revelstoke, a well known barrister, has been  missing for some days past. His friends are  very anxious about him.  The following list of pupils attending the  Nelson public schools have been placed on the  roll of honor : First division : Deportment,  Mabel Mac Vicar ; punctuality and regulariiy,  Hattie Mallette ; proficiency, Fred Whittet.  Second division : Deportment : Celia Prosser;  punctuality and regularity, Edison Wallace :  prbficienc3T, Hannah Knudson.

Such an appointment would meet with general approval,  as posters would then be confined to certain  places and not be stuck up here, there and  everywhere as at present.  The Economist staff are unanimous in their  verdict that the Kootena3^ Cigar Factory produce excellent smokes. They had a opportunity of testing a box of them the other day.  The Board of Trade, the City Council, and  the public generally endorse the application of  Geo. Luther Lennox for the position of land  registrar.  The Nelson tent and awning factory is turning out more work than an3^ other concern in  this line of business in British Columbia.  The Madson make is now accepted as an  assurance that all is right.  The bkrycle is making its presence painfully  apparent in Nelson, as elsewhere. Riders  persist in " scorching" along the sidewalks, to  the imminent danger of the public. The3^  seem to take advantage of the fact that  there is at present no bylaw under which  they can be fined or confined for endangering  the lives of poor pedestrians.

It is a wise plan for a   women   to  allow herself a generous  change   of  dainty,   inexpensive   cotton    dressing sacks, little affairs whose,   only  beauty is   their   freshness.      Much  better to  have   such   and   to   make  sure that the jacket  you' wear  is  'perfectly   fresh,    sa37sc.    a     fashion  writer, than to invest in an   elabpr-  J ate silken affair and than be obliged  to wear it when   its first sweet  and  cleanness is gone.      Remember the  first command that must be respected in. the matter of the negligee  is  sweetness/and   cleanness.      If you  afford a change   of dainty silk   and  .lace negligees, well and good, nothing is prettier,   but, 3^ou   will look  ver37 nice in something less "expensive .if only-it is  just   as  spotless^7  clean.      Of course,   if  the   sack , is  fine   of  material   and   eleborate   of  construction, 3rou'll  call it  a   matinee and rather look down upon  the  cotton .garments.  9 ���t*".mr**9.

" If  they   are   kept   free  and strong by exercise, the wearing  of a. well fitted corset can   do   them  ���'little 'injury,   but     some    exercise  should be   taken   to   set  the   blood  c'.rcu'ating lreehT,  and   the   following   is     suggested   :        Raise    the  outstretched arms above   the   head,  the body retaining its erect position,  then bend slowly forward from   the  waist,   so   as   the   fingers   come  as  nearly touching the floor  as   possible    without   straining.       This    is  done   without  bending   the  knees.  ��� In   recovering   position let the arms  relax   and   sink   down   as the body  straightens up.      This exrecise also  lengthens  the  waist.       The    exercise known as waist rolling   is   one  of the best for attaining freedom   of  the   waist   muscles.      With    hands  placed on the hips, the fingers pointing: forward and down, let the bod37  drop   forward   easily   so   that   it   is  bent at the   waist.
