It is .eisjxrcially gratifying to note that the  ost-successful of the provinces, according to the num-  r of prizes awajded,   is British   Columbia.      The  j'ineral display from this western section of the Do-  itiion secured the. grand prize, while, the products of  ur fisheries and 10rests were a revelation to  the mil*  lonsof people who enjoyed the big  attractions provided for them-at the beautiful capital of France. We  bscrve that  the executive of the Glasgow Interna-  ional  Exhibition  has  allotted   7,000 square feet of  pace to the West Australian Government,   who will  ake over from Paris the collection of gold in various  tafits of refinement" which'has been so much admired  * the exhibition there.      The collection is valued at  !5o.ck:k>, and will be'augmented by other products of  lie count! v. What is to prevent Canada following this  ood example, and securing ample space at the exhi-  "hon in Clas^ow for the material which now attracts  K> much attention-at Paris ?      If the Dominion  Go-  eminent will not undertake the task, then we would  ���u2scm that the Provincial Legislature make arrange-  acn^ to liavc the British Columbia exhibits now do-  nR good service at Paris,   placed in position at Glas-  i ne cost would  not he much,  while great  ��*fu- wculd  accrue  by thus   advertising  the  re-  ^ees 01 the Province,      We hope the matter will  ^vethe attention it deserves,  and that immediate'  cPs will t>c taken to arrange for the neeessary space  1 t'lns^ow.  -i-., ���   ��� ��� 1    .....

Of dinners there were 19,376,  and of lunches 10,558,   while 148 suppers were provided and 5.923 meals served at the bars.   Sir Wilfred  Lawson  will find food for reflection in the statement  that over ,��4.000 was derived from the sale of wines,  though the House of Common still remains without  a licence.

"���   ������      \  Vancouver is making another attempt to start ii  raining association.    We wish our friends of the TerE  minal City every success in their laudable effort, bu|  venture the prophesy that Vancouver will never be|  come the point at  which the mining business oi the  Province will be transacted-    It is too remote from the  scenes of active mining opetatiohs.     However, if ouiS  friends at the Coast manage to iorm ap association on  the lines laid down,  they will  do much towards forwarding the interests of the industry generally.   The  aims and objects of the proposed association are : To  submit desirable amendments to  the provincial mining laws for the consideration of the .British Columbia  Legislature; to prevent wild-cat  schemes from being  launched on the market to the discredit of the Province; to provide a suitable meeting place where ideas  could be exchanged between mining men, papers read  and-lectures by eminent mining experts arranged for;  to establish a museum of  mineral specimens from all  parts of the world, the specimens to be properly tabulated and displayed, and to have available a general  report on all the different mining sections of British  Columbia and specimens of all the rock and ore, and  to eventually establish a mining exchange.    The object evidently is to establish Vancouver as the mining  head centre of the  Province.      But geographically  situated as the Terminal City is,   this  can  never be.  Fancy "desirable amendments to the raining laws*'  amanating from Vancouver ! or a mining exchange  doing business at the Coast. If our Vancouver friends  are really sincere in an effort  to promote the mining  interests of the- Province they  will assist such an institution as they propose in some of the cities of the  interior, some well-established mining centre such as  Nelson, easily accessible from any point of operation.  The idea is a good one, but the site proposed as headquarters would, if adopted, detract from the usefulness  of a British Columbia mining exchange.     We should  like to see the matter taken up by the mining men oS  ���niavs  l>:j>~  11  , t- "��  -'������ i"'"'e$g.$l  mm  r'i:y  ;'. ��� ��� vm:- 'iS!:--J'-'Sii<iV:-'*';4al  lift...��  '.iM ypi^���"51"--^'"*1  II.  mm  w  Ik  *&���  &K:  lift  !$��  4  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  C i  i t  Mr. William Holden, Itispector of Agencies of  the Federal Life Insurance Company for British Col*  tirabia, has returned to Vancouver from an extended  trip through the interior of the Province, and has been  giving the Press the benefit of his opinion  condition of the country generally. Surveying the  situation, he concludes that the interior is enjoyingan  era of solid prosperity such as it never bad before~-  now it is on a safe commercial basis, the mines producing largely, and the payrolls increasing monthly.  Two or three years ago,'! observes Mr. Holdeu,  was the" period of promoting the different mines ;  then followed the trying time of development ; ;.now:  comes the period of production, and it gives promise  of surpassing the expectations of the most sanguined  Mr Holden gives some very interesting details as to  the progress being made in the various localities which  he visited, and endeavors to impress upon the merchants of the Coast the importance of establishing a  trade with the Kootenays. Speaking of Nelson he  says: ''In Nelson the feeling among the business  men is that affairs are now on a sol id foundation, and  they report that businesses good and increasing. Nelson is the commercial entire of the Kootenays/* and,  he might have added, the.'mining centre also. Such  is the verdict of most observant men  There is a prospect that the great strike, in the  anthracite C091 region of. Pennsylvania may be settled  sooner than was anticipated. The mine-owners have  offered a 10 per cent increase on the wages formerly  paid, but do not accede to the full demands of'the  men. However, a meeting of the strikers has been  called for Friday, at Scran ton,., and there appears, to.,  be a disposition" to come .to terms. That the troubles  will be temporarily patched up.at some of the collieries there can be little doubt, but that anything approaching a permanent understanding will be arrived  at there is no reason to hope The men employed at  the mines, as a rule, are not of that class from which  any stability can be expected They are a horde of  illiterate foreigners, who can be easily swayed to the  side of lawlessness by designing agitators, if they can  but be pursuaded that the object in view is to secure  for them an advance in wages or a shortening of the  hours of labor. An incident occurred a few days ago  which goes to prove that the present trouble is really  f war of foreigners being fought out on American  soil. The night shift of the Calvin Pardee colliery'  at Lattimer were proceeding to work, when they were  attacked on the public road by a mob of women, all  armed with clubs and stones, and forced to beat a  hasty retreat. The mob was composed of Hungarians and Italians, probably not one of whom could  speak a word of English. Would such a scene be  possiblein any other country in the world? However, we hope for the sake of the community at large  that some settlement will be arrived at which will  bring to a close this the most extensive strike in the  history of labor troubles.

Liberalism and non-unionism appeared then to be Synonymous terms. In the days of  the Hon. George Brown the Toronto Qlohe office was  the head-quarters for "rat" printers, and scarcely one  Liberal daily from the Atlantic to the Pacific employed a union printer* Organized labor will not be  apt to forget the time when the Hon. George Brown  brought an action for conspiracy against some half-  dozen printers who had the temerity to join a labor  organization.     Of course, the Liberals of to-day do  not like to hear these things spoken of,     They have  become the special protectors of the horny-handed  sons of toil.  Thk appointment of a Chinese commission at this  time by the Laurier Government will not deceive anyone but the ostrich-headed leaders of the liberal party.  If the commission had been appointed three or four  years ago, and the government had promulgated an  exclusion policy, then there might have been some  faith in their ante-election promises, but the appointment of a commission on the eve of election is too  superficial to even merit serious consideration. The  Literal party promised four years ago to curb Chinese  immigration, and only now is it making any attempt  to fulfill that promise. If returned to power it would  probably deal with the report ofrthe commission four  years hence.  A "'Seattle man named Price has skipped with his  wife's earnings. She is now without money and without Price.  Mf. Chris. Foley, the nominee of the Labor party,  is a man of more than ordinary ability. Possessed  of a rare M gift of the gab," he is well equipped to  make it at least interesting on the platform for the  other candidates. He is strictly temperate hi his  habits, has made a special study of his subject, and it  may be well to warn the orators to beware of this man  of one book.  Thk determination to lid the city of tin-horn gamblers and other undesirable characters is amove in the  right direction. There are altogether too many non*  producers in Nelson, and the sooner they are forced to  leave the city the tetter it will be for those who live  by honest industry alone.   Clear the rascals out.  The managers of the Charleston party, engaged in  stringing the all Canadian telegraph wires to Dawson,  returned recently from sections of the Klondykecouur  try where it was thought the foot of whiteman had  never trod before* Near Pike River, in a dense forest,  they found the skeletons of twelve horses in a clearing.

With Slocau  ore netting an average of $100 a ton, the wealth being produced by this new country can be easily  figured up.  Ten miners are .at.present employed on the Condor  Group up Four Mile Creek above town.

Tiie species appear to be increasing by leaps and l)Ounds���-In fact,  they know no bounds.      They bring d<nvn big game  in the jungle of India and stalk the deer with veterans  in the cult on the highland moors. Cycling has ceased  to be a fashionable pastime, and the smart set have  taken to  the gun; and believe  they.- have- in   this a  source of recreation With some reserve;     Of course  they must have something to keep them going; but I  would not care for a woman who would take a delight  \n slaughtering birds or taking- life in any form as an  aramement.;      It appears to me unwomanly. :   1 like  tp see a manly man and a womanly   woman as I dislike to see a boi ly boy.      No w, iff he.se sports women  were to take to target shooting I could forgive them/  nnd possibly  admire them   if they turned  out   to ite  good shots, but when I read oi"a lady who killed forty  brace of grouse tlie first day of. the season (and it was  not. a drive)   I cannot say that she is a woman after.  my own heart.  As I have said,   if women aspire  to bulls' eves ou  the target, they   might ..win my admiration--,-)   prixc  worth shooting for, if I say   it  myself.      I  have not  seen any of our Nelson ladies in   the shooting nailery'  as yet.      I am afraid the proprietors of th�� establishment must revis* their prize list if they would .cater to  this class'of customer.     A cigar is no prize to oiler a  markswoman.   , That there  are some ?ood   shots in  Nelson there can be no doubt, although our local men'  did not come out on top at the recent competition at  the nfle -.ituge:      Nevertheless, we have  many sure-  shots ,��� town.

Her many friends in Nelson will  be pleased to learn of her success. During her residence in this city Mrs Brougham and her husband did  much to cultivate the musical tastes for which Nel-  sonites enjoy a distinctidn.  It seems as if the Deceased Wife's Sister Bill, which  has agitated the minds of Old Country legislators for  so  many years,   must give  place to a more urgent  r  question. The disagreeable discovery has been made  that 334 marriages celebrated in a Sunderland church  between the years 1S76 and 1S79 are illegal, because  the license was not transferred to a new building. It  has taken seven years1 correspondence to determine  the law on the subject, but the verdict has now been  given against the validity of the marriages. Therefore 334 married couples are in a terrible plight, and  their children are all legally illegitimate ! Here,  then, is a clear case for moral and intellectual damages. An act of parliamenr would probably secure  the recognition of these marriages., but the matter will  have to hold over until after the general elections, now  on. To all intents and purposes these marriages were  properly performed, and ii the church bed no license  it was not the fault of the innocent public. At the  most it is only a legal technicality, which, however,  may have disastrous results unless rectified b>r law,  since the inheritance of property would be endan-  gered, P��' G.  i  A VICTIM OF THE WAR.  In a letter to the Rochdale Observer, Trooper  Harvey Rigg, a member of the Duke of Lancaster's  Own Yeomanry, thus describes an incident which  oceured during the advance of Sir Charles Warren's  column through Griqualand West.  *�� A Dutch girl, about 20 years old, was leaving  her house a short distance from where.a picket was  posted. In a pitch dark night, amid the rain and  thunder and lighting, the sentry could just discern  some human form.' Immediately he challenged,  14 Halt! Who goes there?" But the girl was  scared and ran away. Twice after in quick succession came the challenges, but the girl ran on. The  only result that could follow was for the sentry to  level his rifle and fire. He did so, and most unfortunately brought down his victim. The poor girl  fell to his bullet, being shot through  the   abdomen.  ������6r;co:ursfe,thed  weather contributed greatly to the accident, because  if the sentry could have seen that it was a woman I  don't think he would have fired. *  '���This happened on Saturday, the night we arrived  and on the Monday afternoon Sir Charles Warren  ordered all troops-to attend her funeral. It \yas &  most impressive sight to see hundreds of spldiers,  with heads bent and arms reversed, shewing their  sorrow for the victim of this most uniortunate ac��  cident Sir Charles Warren, who was accompanied  bv the whole of his /staff, ��� expressed his sorrow to jbe  bereaved parents at the graveside (the gr*ve was du|y  in the grounds attached to the farmhouse), and,  hardly a man in the whole assembly but what .was  touched to the quick,"  >    I  ? * '*  'Ji  '', (   f��',l"l  .* s  1        '�� \  'r  . 1  l *   J  >  1  '1 ('' v\  3  \ 1 *-" f  A1  -/J  1     r'3  " -A  '1 �� \i  I \<  g.sw  ���':::':>m  :f;'*>i  ��� ������ -p '.ip. iv>ipB^-i|^ni  r ��� rw"���T*  ��   ���       -      \  s^7jr  h **. .rv  *j  - r ���> f F- zWffm  *      1 mf<[  .i--;,-:.,'fli;v.'/.;,Jlffl  ��� . .....   -:,';-:''i.,':.14?S  10  frtIA  y:  W(  SI  "iWB  ��*Hf *  V*  1-" I    ��  Will  ATA  JL .1.1 lw   ���.JL<v>-.'t - I LI'...,  NE day as he entered the -vestibule,,a large  house inhabited by merchants and govertuuetit  officials, he found the janitor sorting the morning  mail and putting some of the letters into the urai!  boxes which were nailed to the wait near the front  staircase.

There was nothing for it but to tell the janitor  abou his uncle an old and respected tenant, and,  what was still more to the purpose, the aunt and  the jaoitress *ere bosom friends.

And as the offense  was not repeated the janitor was satisfied and the  epis<xte soon faded out of his mind.  The incident cured Hansa of his jealousy and of  part of his sentimentality.

The notion   that  ���Krso:i \vho'loses"'.a tooth h about to lose a friend  is another survival #f the past ; it is to be found in  the Dream Book of Artemidorus. We can trace  one of the rites of Aryan sun worship in the deisil of  Highland superstition. Ghosts have a history almost as ancient as the (town of creation, and it is  manifest from the strange story of Saul and the Witch  of Bndor that even the Jews believed the phantoms  of the dead could be envoked by means of sorcery.
