If we  mistake not, London will refuse to tolerate the Chinaman when it is discovered that he is a menace to home  industry. The government may not take the matter  up for " Imperial reasons, "���the cause assigned when  ;wn-.attempt was made to restrict Chinese immigration  V British Columbia���but public sentiment will If  the Chinese get a foothold in the laundries of London  it is only a matter of time until they would get into  the domestic service and branch out into business.  The Cockney laundress is notoriously a strong-willed  individual, and with public sympathy on her side she  is likely to make it very hot for John Chinaman when  she suspects that he is about to supplant her.  Four election campaigns, all of great interest to  Canadians, are now in full swing���the general elections in Britain, the presidential election in the United  States, the Newfoundland elections, and the Dominion elections. In each and every one of these the  people of this country are concerned. It means much  to Canada if the result of these elections is* in favor  of sound, honest government. The return of the  Conservatives to Power in Britain means the maintenance of the Empire's prestige, in which Cadada  plays an important part. In the United States the  great point at issue appears to be the free coinage of  silver, in which Canadians are naturally interested.  The most important issue, however, is to be decided  right at home���whether our country is to be swamped  in debt by the maladministration of the Laurier government or to be rescued by the grand old party that  made Canada a nation, and who are still able and willing to successfully guide her destinies.  It is reported from Melbourne that a great exodus  of Australians, to the Transvaal and Rhodesia has be-  gun, and that ere the end of the ^e&r^ thousands will  have emigrated thither from the Antipodes. Thepeo-  pie of the new Commonwealth appear to have been,  fired by the reports sent home by Australian cam  paignersin South Africa as to the rich mineral and  agricultural possibilities of the Transvaal and the  country north, and hence the rush. The Transvaal  does not seem toimpress-our Canadian volunteers as  it did their .brethren' of the Southern Cross. The  Canadians, no doubt, feel convinced that their own  country possesses attractions greater than South Africa offers���and Tffey are right.  .

Then dame rumor got to workf  and circulated  the rebort that the  Scotchmen   were  asked to work with|Chiuese helpers.    It now appears  that these rumors were groundless���that the men * ere,  not called on to work  for less than $3 a day, nor to  have Chinese helpers.     The fact of the matter is that  these men were accustaroed to work in old established  mining centres in Scotland,   and that the change to  Union proved too much for them.     They had  never  seen a house of wood before, while  these  domiciles  or bachelors'  quarters familiarly known in the   wild  and woolly West as M shacks,"  proved to them a revelation.     The grievances of these two score of men  were sentimental. They are riot the material of which  pioneers are made, -.nd. are no credit   to the proverbially hardy Scot.    Since these men threw down their  picks and shovels, another batch of Scotch miners has  arrived, and have gone  to work   at Union,   sensibly  resolved to accept  conditions as they rind them, and  to help to improve matters      Men of this stamina are  bound to score a success     It is mo^t important in the  interest of progress  and prosperity in  this   Province  that this great industry, coal mining, shall  not be in  the hands of the Chinese.    One hundred whitemen at  work in the pits, and with families dependen t on t hem,  will do more  to build  up the country than Would  thousands of Chinese similarly employed.

His point was that  those social flotsam and jetsam should be offered work  and if they would  not abandon their  idle ways they  should be detained for a 'period sufficiently  long for  disciplinary purposes in correctional institutions,   the  hardened cases in penitentiaries to be  specially provided.    The speaker also proposed that labor colonies  should be instituted on  the lines of those which had  proved so successful in Germany, Holland and Switzerland.- The only justification for the loafer and the  tramp is the lack of work by  which he can earn his  daily bread.      If this were made perfectly certain of  attainment then  public opinion would certainly support measures,  even to imprisonment, to compel the  loafer either to work or want���alternatives he will not  now willingly accept   The tramp nuisance is a grow-  ing one in Canada, but as yet  is not seriously felt in  this Province.      There is, perhaps, no city in British  Columbia enjoying  such  an  immunity  from   these  gentry as does Nelson.     The tramp has been taught  to give the place a wide berth.  Wijem patriotism h pressed into the serviceoftradf  the result is frequently amusing.

That ts nothing to crow about  *^***��*K,rt-��W��i  The late fatal accident on the Nanaimo & Esqui-  malt Railway has been thoroughly ventilated in open  court; and the responsibility has been placed upon the  iper shoulders. At the Nanaimo Assizes before  : Justice Drake, Nathan  Paul  Dougau, the train  Tiie steady advance in the price of silver is W  .important to the mining interests of the Kooteni#  and is bound to give a great impetus to *he industry  Not since 1897 has the white metal reached the pfr  sent market price, and indications are that the upwarf  movement will continue.    When silver went down to  52 cents, there was a decided falling offin product*  but now that it is looking sip again there is every  of renewed activity.     This improvement in puce 1$  attributed to the increased demand from Imiia, IM��<  and the. wStraits Settlements.    So far this year Lob**  has shipped to India 5,000,000 ounces of silver ��ore  than during the corresponding period of last yeaf^,  China 6,000,000 ounces more, and to the Straits  tlements 3,500,000'in excess of last year's shspmeo  The demand for silver is growing in China ��wiog  extension of trade, and doubtless the war b��s��.  had much to do with it. Since th�� outbreak of ^  tilities there the country has riot been able to 1CP0  anything, while exports still go out. Of coarse  thing must go in to pay lor these ��ports,a^  something is silver.

The reservation is in the State of Washington, close  to the Canadian boundary. The principal places in  the neighborhood are Molson, Chesaw and Bolster,  the distances respectively from the new settlement  being 23, 20 and 19 miles. Many of the intending  settlers had come from Dakota, and those who were  disappointed in finding locations are strongly censuring the railway companies for, as they allege, misrepresenting the position by advertising a far greater  area as open for settlement than was really the case.  It cannot be denied that the postponement of the  YaleGariboo election for two weeks will give a decided advantage to whichever party wins in the East;  AsJThe Hconom ist is satisfied that the result throughout the East will be a Conservative victory, it has no  fault to find with the dehy.  Hon. J* rL Turner is visiting Nelson this week,  partly on official business. He is greatly surprised  at the growth of the Kootenay Metropolis since his  last visit two years ago,, and like everyone else who  has visited us, predicts a great fature for Nelson.  -JU  '�� ���* �� ���-  bh It t4  fp^r 1  ��f 1>COplc Were on hand readv lo drivethdr  f^luen   )Ut lhCTC WaS n0t hlnd (OT "���  atul US a Cim~  ^&nte!r many hum!red* were obliged to'leave disap--  |\jijl * f   0l tl,ose who remain it is said the majority  f "������r^oun7hnsr(iU��,),e l�� eStablisb a clear litte    The "same  ^A-.

But it does not  appear to have that effect. They am now in the peculiar position of having a good fire apparatus without  a fire brigade to handle it. Perhaps they think that  the re bu siding of the city has not sufficien tly advanced  to need fire protection.

Mr. Perry Wright, collector of provincial tax for  Xelson and suburbs, is making a strenuous effort to  complete the work at once. Already he has collected  upwards of $2,000, and there is still much outstanding. The collections this year will*be considerably in  excess of those of last year, which shows that there is  a steady increase in the population of Nelson. This  increase is more particularly observable in the number  of men employed in the mining industry.

Yet such a suit  has been entered, needless to say in the United States.  la the month of December,  1893,  one  Svvitliiii C.  Shortlidge married a   Miss Marie Dixon Koons,   and  six weeks afterwards shot her deliberately.    He then  tried to commit suicide, but was disarmed bva neighbor.      The man was arrested,   and tried for murder,  but was acquitted on the grounds of insanity, and confined in an asylum up to a year ago.    He is now slicing the Provident Life &TrustCo. to recover tliesum  of $7,000, the amount for which his wife was insured.  All this took place in   Philadelphia,  where  stranpc  things occasionally happen.      It is said that there is  one other case ofa somewhat similar nature on record  Some years ago a saloon-keeper  in Sedalla, Mo., in-  sured his wife for 35000 dollars and shortly afterwards  killed her.      He was put on trial but acquitted 0.1 a  technicality.    After his acquittal he  sued the life insurance company, and so far as the lawwasconcernol  he had lt entirely on his side.      However,   no jurv  could be found to give him a verdict, and finally the  indignant citizens ended the matter  by  lynching the  fellow.      I am somewhat anxious to know what will  be the fate of Swinton C. Shortlidge^  Another insurance fraud  and murder is at present  attracting attention.   In this instance it looks as jf0���c  of the accomplices in a well-planned swindle has been  murdered by her pmners in the fraud.

The official announcement that the Duke and Duch*  [ess of York will visit Australia next spring, and that  the former will be commissioned by the Queen to open  in her name the first session ofthe parliament of the  newly-created.. Australian Commonwealth, has been  ���everywhere received with satisfaction. All idea had  ken prevalent that the Duke and Duchess might pay  an early visit to some of the other great self-governing  colonies, and the Dominion of Canada was marked  out by popular rumor for the tour. The special circumstances attaching to the creation ofthe Australian  Commonwealth', however, have induced the visit to be  oaid to the land of the Southern Cross. It is not too  ranch to hope that on the return trip the Royal party  jmav find-it'convenient to visit Canada.

None of the fine points were overlooked, and really from a character point of view Mrs.  Davys was the best in the cast.     Mr. Caldwell gave  a clever impersonation ofthe Mikado.    Mr. Lochore  was in excellent voice and Mr. Williamson provoked  much mirth by his presentation of Ko-Ko.     Mr.  Winter had a  fine conception of Pooh-Bah,  and as  usual brought forth much applause.   Mr. Grizelle, as  Pish-Tush, was all that could be desired.

The strike is the  outcome of differences as to the ^interpretation of Lord  Brassey's award, which terminated the great strike  of 1899. Some of the employers claim the right,  under the award to fix the hour at which a day's  work is to commence according to the requirements  of business, but the employes dispute the claim.  More than.'2,000 striking mine workers made a  descent on ten colliers of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company in the Panther Creek yesterday.  One crowd shut up the Nesquehonin colliery while  another mob was driven back to Tamaqua- and dispersed by a battalion of troops after an exciting time.  No one was hurt.

The trouble was where  to draw the line, for if I just let things slide the boys  would massacre each other  until there was   nothing  left but the town site, and if I did ray  duty the   first  thing would have been to clap the whole  population  in jail or run them all out of the country.   1 he main  difficulty was  about unlicensed or prohibited   bus?-���  ness ;   but if I had turned the  law  loose on  every  offender I should have closed up all saloons eamblinr  halls, restaurants, dance houses and theaters;���in. fact���'.  the whole city of Amber      The   usual  thing was  to  black mail every   body instead of running:\\p jail expenses, but the question was wheie to draw the line  You see, if I didn't black mail   enough,    people concluded I was useless, and if I assessed them too much  they kicked;like the bulls of Bashau.

He sides that, Long Shorty,  lie of our special brand of tough*, thought that   the  san on the bridge was having "more   than his  share  prosperity.     One/, morning,   late   in    December,  [ong Shortv put .two'heavy timbers across the  river  jbind the man on the bridge and   began to build  a  louse on 'them beams. :   He planked over   his   floor,  ft up his frame of scantling nm\   began to  fill in the  frills,'then went to the  city  council and told  them  lat be intended' at his own cxjxrnse, to lay down  an  :tra sidewalk u> cover .the ?:paee over the   river   be*  veeu the bridge and his new saloon,  Otc'oiusc that meant sweeping away   the man   on  le bridge, s.hanty and all. by   (ttrmissiou of the city  iithoritics. so I sent one of my deputy   marshals  to  >eho\v the, Britisher'felt  "Oh, that's all right;" says the man on the bridge.  " Long Shorty rests one end of his bridge timbers on  railroad land ;jnd the other end on pi ivate house property,     if I get his timbers sawed oif at ,both  ends,  the gentleman will  hav*  to swing his\saloon  with  ropes/* r ..'.'"���   '  "What from?"  " The clouds,M says  the  Britisher, and  gave my  deputy a cigar.  Now, if that youngster had kicked up a fuss, and  gone after Long Shorty with a gun, I'd have, let  them worry it out between themselves, but the man  on the bridge, although only an alien and a tenderfoot with nothing to live on but his natural gift, was  the only law abiding inhabitant in my district. So  I went to Dan McPhail and says I, " Dan, I guess  Vm going to have my spring cleaning/'  "'Goodgracious/' says Dan, 'so we set to \vork  making out a list of the proposed exiles, gamblers,  bums, crooks, etc., who would never be missed from  Amber, to the number of 25, We called a session  ofthe viglauce committee, posted a guard around my  little calaboose and ran in the gentlemen one by one,  until we had a full ijouse.
