During an experience of nearly a quarter  of a century in newspaper offices we have read  many "interviews" but the one from which  we quote is by long odds the worst of its kind.  It is simply the work of an impertinent person  attempting something for which he is unfitted.  H There are two kinds of interviewers : The first  |      asks   privileged     questions     and    invariably  4^iCVeS dvil anSWers ; the second ^ an imper-  *����� 'S"^' -'*:"*s ������'-'���A  that for-somfe-.months past in this vast sea of  mountains.-there has been in process of incubationa little, .gathering of one man who.-'b��s  banded :himself together under the title of the  reform parts;. 'This name was probably considered, .more,.-.confusing    than   the    "Molly  Maguires,'*." White Caps*' or the " Pirates of  Penzance."  The    ostensible    object    of    the    "reform  party"  as .we understand it,   differs   in   vital  particulars-to that of the parties   led by either  Mr.   Higgins/: Mr.   Beaven   or   Mr.   Semlin.  The   organizations   led   by   these   gentlemen  have no  object   in   particular,   except   to  get  even with the government, and to be at liberty  to act independently of any other party.    The  "reform party " differs from all  other parties  in the very   essential   particular   that   no   one  can be found who is  able   to   tell   who is   its  leader, and whether at   the   present   time it is  the happy possessor of a membership roll.     So  far as a declaration ot principles   is  concerned  the   "reform  party"   may  be  composed   of  moonshiners, white caps,   crackers,   larrikans  !  or freebooters.; or it may be a   society   formed  I  for  the   purpose   of   extorting  tribute   from  I  unsuspecting   travelers.       The   fact   that   an   I  attempt is being made   to   lead   Mr.   Bostock   '  into a trap would  afford  strong   presumptive  !  evidence that the "reform   party"   is   of  the   I  character last described.      Why  the   "reform   !  party " should be so anxious to be lead   "out  I  of the land of Egypt, "if it   has   taken   up its  !  headquarters in that God-forsaken country   is  more than we can understand, On the principle  that the   wicked   love  darkness   rather  than  light, seems to us   the very best   reason   why  the   ' reform party " should remain   in   Egyptian darkness with the bedouins and the seven  plagues.  There is one thing to be  said  for the "reform party.''    Some of the members, or rather  lamentation."

He never-  exceeds his  authority,   consequently  he has  earned   for   himself the   respect of  every��**e  interested in   the   proper  enforcement of o��rg  laws.    Mr. Hussey believes that what is worth /  doing at all is worth doing well, and  be is too y  much of a gentleman to resort to the contemptible methods of some   who   have  heretofore  degraded their office in order to   make  a display of authority*      The  attorney-general and  the heads of other  departments  should constitute   Mr.    Hussey   as   a model  for  future  appointments.  Of the many schemes for exploiting the  wealth of the Yukon the iLmloops Standard  thinks that none seem more necessary to be  nipped in the bud than those of wealthy New  York and other citizens of the United States  who are putting out companies to hold...claims  in our territory, grubstaking the men; carrying the proceeds of their find out of the country.

There is no necessity to hit back at  them as they exclude the British aud Chinese,  but not to give them everything without some  return.  tor in Paris.

It was no less a person  that Lord Sholto Douglas, whose matrimonial  adventures have been the talk of the whole  continent during the past few years. Lady  Sholto Douglas was a variety actress and fell  iu with his lordship at Bakersfield, Cal. The  yming man was deeply smitten and a hasty  marriage ensued. Lady Sholto retired from  the stage, but will soon return to the boards,  this time in New York citv. I first met Lord  Sholto Douglas in Los Angeles, a short time  after his marriage to Miss Addis. That was  two years ago, and I must confess that I was  most agreeably pleased to find, the other day,  that these two years have made such a wonderful improvement in his lordship. He was  here looking after his interests in the Fern  mine, and has returned to Vancouver.  American heiresses who are interested in  securing foreign titles will be glad to know  that there are a number of aristocrats iu  1 "Vance working at lowly occupations for a  living. A Marquis de Beaumanior is carrying  .U'rist to a mill near Nantes. A Viscomte de  St. Megrin is driving a cab in Paris.

A Marquis de Poligny is an   omnibus-conciuc-  The 24th of May, i860, was a .great day in  the little town of Ingersoll, Ontario. There  were horse races, boat races, running ra:ces,  and in fact every kind of sport that would add  to the enjoyment of the loyal people of Ingersoll. At that time there was considerabe  rivalry between two young fellows as to their  relative merits as hurdle racers.? The citizens  became considerably \worked up over the  event.' Friends of both boys backed up their  choice with good solid money and no' doubt  the young lady friends of both were present to  cheer on their favorites.1 The hour for the  race arrived and both started i:i to win: The  race was closely contested, but one had to win,  and one did win. The defeated boy maintained that he had been cheated, but the victor  denied having taken an unfair advantage of  his opponent However years makes us all  more pious and more willing to confess the  faultsof vouth. Both boys have now grown  to be middle-aged men, and the other day'they  met in Nelson. The victor was again charged  with having gained the race unfairly, and  while he did not make a full admission pf his  guilt he frankly confessed that perhaps he  had "shaved Hugh just a trifle.'/' The boy  who lost is now Mr. Hugh Sutherland, ex-  M.P., the railway promoter, and the lad who  had "shaved Hugh just a trifle," is Mr.  N. F. Hao-el, the well-known criminal lawyer.  My old and esteemed friend, Hon. D. W.  Higgins, is now touring through the country,  and although he denies that his movements  have any political significance there are some  people wicked enough to suspect that the honorable speaker is looking for a constituency,  in this search Mr. Higgins is not alone. There  are hundreds of others looking for constituencies, aud there is very little danger of a candidate famine at the next general election.  A visitor to Nelson is impressed with the  laro-e number of people who are seen on the  streets everv evening. Last Saturday evening  in particular, it was almost impossible to move  along Baker street, on account of its crowded  condition. One could almost imagine himself  in one of the large Eastern cities, so great was  the crowd. The stores appeared to be well  patronized, which goes to show that money is  circulating freely.  The building boom in Nelson shows no  sign of abatement. It now looks as if there  would be sufficient hotel accommodation to  supply the demand. Dwelling houses are also  being erected in great number. A most satisfactory feature in connection with this phenomenal activity in building operations is  the  rv 1 ?  fact that the structures are all of the most sub-;  stantial character. - * , ./    J , ;   ;     .;  ���M  1'  \V  ���fi  -K  'l  n  The decline in silver naturally makes the  silver miners of Slocan feel a little, blue, but.,,  accbrdirig to an interview with a mining man :...  from that district, last- Tuesday, f^.they ;are-  keeping a'stiff upper "lip, as a rulj-.ahd.for- ,  tunately there are*many miriesln that district^  that can afford to ship even though' silver go  much lower.

The hotels are full, and every new face  appears to bear the impress of business. There,  is very little doubt that the coming year will  be one of unprecedented mining activity.  Mining men who can obtain profitable investments in the Kootenay will not face the hard^  ships of a trip to the Klondyke. There is no  risk here, and all the wealth of the Klondyke  would not be adequate compensation for its  lack of civilization. Vishnu.  R. B. Esnouf, of Cheapside, Vernon Street,  has just received two carloads of furniture, one  carload consisting of chairs.  Among the arrivals in Nelson this week  was Mr. Jas. H.

The3:  don't know when-a flash is coming, and can't  make it stay still while the}- photograph it,  can they ?M  '' Not likely,'' I laughingly replied; " the  lightning 'takes' itself. If there is a thunderstorm at night, all that is necessary is to put  a sensitive plate in the camera, uncover the  lens, and point it at the sky, when the next  flash of lightning will record itself upon the  plate, which must then be developed in the  usual way."  4'Is that all?" returned Donald. "How  very easy. Couldn't we take some? Do let  us try." ���  "All right," I replied,  but first of all   we  must wait for a thunderstorm,  so   when  there  is   another  at  night  get  your   photographic  t traps ready, and we'll see what we can do."  Donald and I were enthusiastic   cyclists, he  being one   of several  years'   standing,   but I  only since we came to live here in   Woodford,  con the borders of the New Forest, as^ I   found  j  it very- convenient to ride to the railway station   |  ���five miles away���or to Salisbury-   or   South-   !  ampton, as our village   lies   mid-way   on   the  \  high road between those towns. j  "Charmed'by-the lovely-forest scenerv, I had j  lately practised the fascinating science of i  photography, and thereby secured many a ;  beautiful scene of woodland glade. Donald, !  too, soon waxed, enthusiastic over it, and \  many a cyclo-photographic day did we spend ;  securing pictures of the exquisite scenes that  abound around our home.  The marvellous photos,  of lightning flashes   :  that appeared in   'The   Strand'   had  excited  Donald's wonder and curiosity, leading   to the   j  conversation with which this storv begins.  .     We had not long to wait for a thunderstorm,   \  for on that very night raged one of exceptional   \  violence.      It began about eleven o'clock, and  Donald,  who had   retired   to   bed   some   time   I  before, burst into my room fully   dressed, and  shouted:���"Come   on,   father;   there's   a tremendous thunderstorm coming   up,   and such   '  flashes of lightning!   I'm off to the dark-room  to put some plates in   the   slides,   so  get the   1  camera ready.      The front bedroom window is   I  the best place to expose from."  Here let me state that our house stands  about ten feet from the rqidside, and the view  from our front windows comprises the road  and the common opposite us, a small piece of  waste land partly surrounded by the noble  trees of the New Forest.  By the time that I had made the necessary  arrangements at the window, Donald rejoined  me, bringing three double dark-slides loaded  with the sensitive plates. " We ought to get  at least one successful photo out of this lot,"  said he.  Soon the storm,   which   had   been   drawing  nearer, burst over us   with   terrible   fury,  the  lightning   flashing-   with   amazing   brilliancy,  WTM$\ thunder rolling with deafening roars.    One  | by one the plates were exposed under con-  I ditions that justified the expectations of good  results, and Donald was in high glee. Just as  I was about to expose the sixth���and last���  plate, he said : " Why don't you take a flashlight photo of the common with that one ?  Illuminated bv the celestial electric \i%ht vou  know. Point the camera towards the centre  of the common, just for fun. I'd like tosee  how it comes out"  I acted upon his suggestion, and no sooner  had I got the camera in position than a flash  of lightning, so vivid and brilliant in its intensity as to momentarily blind us, and wring  from< us a fearsome and terrified "Oh!"  imprinted the scene on the sensitive plate.  " I'm glad that's the last plate,' said Donald, when the defeaning peal of thunder  allowed him to make himself heard, "for I  should not care to stand at the window during  another such flash as that. Shall we develop  the plates to-nisfht ?''  Not if 1 know it," I replied.     " Be off to  �� J    ~XT  j  bed now, and we'll do   them the first thing in  ���  the morning."  ! II.  s  j But we didn't; for we were awakened early  J by a violent ringing of the bell, and upon  ] going down in my dressing-gown and opening  | the door, I beheld the village constable with  j white, haggard face. . on which fear was  j strongly marked in every line.  | " Oh! sir," he gasped, '* will you come over  I on the common with me? There's the corpse  j ofa man lying there, and I fear he's been  j murdered, for there's a knife stuck in his  : breast. I want you to come as a witness  i   before I touch the  body."  ''Lying on the common !    Murdered!    Impossible !" r said.    " Bat wait a moment til!   I  ���   have dressed, aud I'll come with you."  ;       The constable's tale was   only   too true,   for  !   there, lyi-ig on the da-ao jrrass-diis   hair'and  |   clothes sodden   with   hist   night's   rain;   with  !   upturned face ;  and with the   blade   of a large  ;   knife buried dee > I i his heart���lay   the corpse  of Ivan Solenski, the handsome young tenant  of "The Hermitage." and suitor for Uie heart  and hand of  the   lovely   Marie   Devereux    of  ^Forest Hall,"   While the   constable   guarded  the body. I hurried for the   doctor, who. uoon  his arrival, declared that life had   been  extinct  for some hours.  "Good heavens ! he ejaculated,   "this knife  belongs to Gerald Merrilees!  See, here are his  initials !''    and   thprp    nn   t-v..-   <-:i  o.uu   i.icrc,   on   the silver-mounted  handle, were the letters "Q. M."  That evening Gerald Merrilees,   the   handsome, well-built young; owner of  " The Home  Farm," and Solenski's rival  for the affections  of   the    beauteous     Marie     Devereux       wis   :  arrested    on   a   charge   of  murder,   uoon   the  sworn   information of the   butler   of   ^Forest   [  Hall,"   who   deposed   that,   on   the   pre^ou*  evening,   Merrilees had   had   a   stormv   interview with Miss Devereux, iu which Solenski's  name was mentioned several  times,   and that  Merrilees    had   suddenly   dashed   out   of  the  house,  muttering:    "I'll   kill   him!    I'll   kill  him!"    Upon   this   evidence,   and that of the  knife found in the dead man's breast, Merrilees  was committed for: trial atthe fort   ~~7.'  assizes about to be held at the Guildhall w"5  Chester. . ,   ,�� vin-  Doubtless the reader remembers the afeu���t  of the trial, which was published^ fully in i J  daily papers of the time, but in case' he k  not recall it to mind, I might here briefly gW  Merrilees' defence.

THE NELSON ECONOMIST.
if   /> ^
1 / *
reading my novel, and was looking about for
:^ngyto do, when 1 suddenly thought of
the plates we had exposed on the night of the
th^derstorm. and had lain undeveloped and
Uotten till now.., -The very thing! I
exedaimed. " I'll-ser to work and develop
them at once.      It will pass the time nicely.
The   first  plate  developed  was   a  faiimer
Why, I don't know,   for  I immediately threw
it way and commenced another.     "Ah!" I
thought this is something like a photograph."
Truly     it   was  a  most   wonderful   photo  of
lightning ;  the wavy lines of fire-there were
four    springing   from    one   stem—streaming
down from the dark and angry   heavens right
on "to the earth,  where the  trees  of the New
Forest in the   background  were  sharply  silhouetted against   the   tongues   of fire,   from
which   little  side-streams  spread   out. in   all
directions.     I felt, and still feel, proud of that
photograph, for it caused no  little excitement
in ^scientific world.    The next, plate was a
bit of a mystery to me, for it was a negative of
the landscape   in   front  of our   house,   and I
wondered when it was taken, until   I   remembered that Donald had asked me  to  take it as
a flash-light landscape view with the last plate
on that memorable evening of the storm. ,   As
development     proceeded,     and     the    objects
became more and   more   distinct,   I   was   surprised to see several   human figures port^ed
in it.      With   a   magnifying glass T gave it a
closer examination, the   result of which made
me tremble with excitement.
■"Good heavens !" I exclaimed ; " this is a
photo of the murder of Soleuski !'* and indeed
it was; taken at the identical moment the
crime was committed. There was the whole
scene unerringly depicted on the plate by that
brilliant flash of lightning ! I examined the
plate more minutely, and the result was startling iu the extreme : There was the murderer
"'in the very act of plunging the knife into
Solenski's breast!
The faces of both men were plainly distinguishable, and—that of the murderer was
not Gerald Merrilees, but of a short, thick-set
man with a heavv beard ; and there, farther in
the background, was an inanimate form, with
upturned face, lying upon the earth.
"Good heavens !" I again exclaimed. " So
Merrilees is innocent, after all ! How wonderful that we should have taken this photograph
and thus be able to prove his innocence ! Tomorrow I will go to Winchester with it, and
procure his release."
Suddenly I reeled as if shot.■,:■" 'To-morrow,J
did 1 say? Why, to-morrow is the day of his
execution! It is ' to-morrow ' nowi for it is
after three o'clock ! -In five hOUTS all will be
over ; another victim sacrificed to  miscarriage
of j ustice." What was I to do ? Twenty
miles from Winchester with no means of communicating with the authorities to avert tlie
tragedy which would so soon be enacted—here
was I with evidence that would save an
innocent man's life ; and that man a very dear
friend, too !
What could I do ? I groaned aloud in my
anguish, and great beads of perspiration
dropped from my brow.
Just then my wife and son returned, and
were alarmed to see my agitated state, but
upon explaining matters, my wife's ready wit
suggested that I should ride, to Winchester on
my bicycle. The very thing! .J jumped
with joy, and soon after started on my dark
and dreary, but fateful, ride, with the priceless
negative carefully packed to avoid the risk of
breakage and its terrible consequences.   ~-
I will not go into details of that ride, for
only those who have ridden over strange
cross-roads on a pitch-dark night, when a
friend's life depends upon their speed, and
dispatch, can sympathize with me.
At 6:45 that/same morning I rode up to
Winchester gaol, and demanded to see the
Governor immediately; and upon being
admitted to" his presence showed him the
heaven-sent witness, which he deemed of such
importance that he telegraphed at once to the
Home Secretary, giving hini; details of my
marvellous photograph, with the result that
in this eleventh hour Gerald Merrilees, was
reprieved—he, was saved !
The nature of the evidence that established
Merrilees innocence, and all particulars concerning it, were kept strictly secret by the
police, who had my negative, enlarged, and
sent copies of the photograph—whereon the
features of the murderer were clearly portrayed
 t'o all  the  police-stations  in  the  kingdom,
with the result that within ten days the real
culprit was arrested iu the foreign quarter of
Soho, and upon being charged with the
murder confessed his guilt, stating that Sol-
enski was an absconding Nihilist, who had
fled to England to avoid carrying out a horrible task imposed on him by the peculiar
rules of that dreaded society.
By sd doing his life became forfeited, and to
the murderer was alloted the duty of carrying
out the society's vengeance. Hoping to
escape, Soleuski had lived in retirement in
our village, but was tracked by his inexorable
executioner, who stated that on the night of
the great storm he had come across the prostrate and senseless form of Merriless, from
whom he took everything available, including
the fatal knife with which he stabbed his victim (whom he accidentally met immediately
after leaving Merrilees), just as the defending
counsel had surmised at the trial.
In due time, Merrilees received a full and
unconditional pardon (for a crime that he had
never committed !), and I should not at any
time be surprised to hear of his engagement to
Miss Devereux.
He and I are the strongest of friends, as he
says he owes his life to me, but I tell him that
it is not so, but that he owes it to the magazine that prompted us to take the photos on
that eventful night: " The Strand. "-Tit-Bits.
Tames Payn tells a story of a certain officer
ofa transatlantic steamship who, in the absence
of any clerical passenger, was asked during
a storm to undertake the duties of chaplain.
He was'anxious to oblige, but felt that he was
altogether unequal to ecclesiastical operations
to preaching or even reading " I can ho,
ever," he said," take up a collection.

'  jii> . v.*  ���   i  isar;  II5  SI  ;jb  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  OFF FOR   THE   KLONDYKE  Mr. Phil Abrahams writes The Economist  as follows : " We have on board the Utopia  about 130 passengers, which is about 60 more  than the law permits, including several ladies,  who are going,"as the\~ say, to try and make a  , stake. They will go down the Yukon 03- way  of White Pass via Ska'guay, and will travel in  bloomers. The cargo includes 60 head  of horses and  several voke   of oxen.      The  *    o  oxen will be used to pack   over the   pass, and  old timers say that they- are better than  horses  or mules for that purpose.   You ought to gaze  upon this motley   crowd of  Klondykers���old  and young from  Maine   and Texas���some   of  them walking around the   ship with revolvers  strapped to their waists, and for all the world  looking like a travelling arsenal.   Others with  large sombreros and  bowie-knives,  bright top  boots, corduro\- suits, flannel suits, and in fact  the greatest variety of make-ups imaginable.  They have peculiar ideas as t > what  the}" will  need in the new country, and it is worth some-  . thing   to listen   to   them.     We   have   in  this  crowd  the adventurer   as well   as the miner ;  the tough who has come on  board with a pair  of blankets aud his  gall; but he   is going   to  the Yukon.     He expects  to   find some one at  the White Pass who has   become   discouraged  and who will sell his outfit for little   or   nothing.     I expect that if we arrive   at  ��>kaguay  all right it will take us about two weeks with  our eight head of horses to get over  the   pass,  and I hope we will not be delayed.     We kave  on board a representative of Harper's Weekly,  and also two young men who have  about   soo  newspapers of various cities which they   hope  to sell for $1 a copy..    The steamship  Utopia  is a small boat   that has been   running from  Seattle to Vancouver.    She has been chartered  by  the  Alaska    Steamship   company.     They  sold more tickets than   they had   accommodations.     Our party paid  $160 dollars   each for  four first-class tickets,   and  they put   us in   a  state-room with three   berths ia   it, thus compelling one   of us   to sleep  on the floor.     We  protested/but all  in vain.     First-class passengers have been compelled to sleep on   deck, or  do the best they can.    The miners   threatened  to take the law in their own hands, bat   better  counsel prevailed.     The captain has expressed  himself very' forcibly,  but   he  is,. powerless   to  improve   existing   conditions.     He    has  just  thrown    ten gallons    of   whiskey   overboard.  This is the worst mess I hive ever been in.     I  have had one  meal   to-day  and   may  get  another before night.     The steward is paralyzed  and the purser worse.    There is also on board  a man by the name   of  Parker,   a contraband  preacher, a smooth, oily duck,  he   also   has a  hand in it, he carries the boodle.      He   comes   i  along to throw oil on the troubled water,   but  I  the smoothest fakers of this   company are one   i  named Eshelman and another  named  Taylor.   !  They/were left them behind in Seattle   and   it   I  is.'good for them that they   stayed   behind.     I   I  believe that both of them   would   have   been  thrown overboard.       You   never in your   life  saw a more indignant crowd   than   are on this  boat,  having   bought their   first-class   tickets  with albpromises of good accommodation   and  then at the  last  moment  to   be   assigned   to  sleep where 3-011 please.      The   second class  passengers are just stifling below decks  along  with the horses.     I pity the poor horses.  This  is a speculation for m01103'"   making   and   anybody who has enough cash to charter  a   boat  can in a few hours sell enough tickets and get  enough    freight    to    more   than    treble ' his  investment; this way of humbugging the people  and packing them on a ship like a herd of wild  cattle could never happen on the Canadian side  of the line.    I trust The Economist will ventilate this matter and show the world how outrageously we have been   treated.

Boundary Creek district contains so many  important camps that it is almost impossible to  make even a passing reference  to  a!l of them  ��" one article.   Last week the Times attempted  l<> point ont the importance of Boundary Creek  ��s a mining  district,   and  referred  to  all the  camps.    At   least  that  was the intention, but  we find that several  of the  important  camps  were  omitted.    For  instance,   Smith's camp,  with  the  Last  Chance  and  Republic mines,  where W. T. Smith is doing  extensive  work  i" the interests of the  Republic Mining Com-  i);l"y.    Mr. Smith   has  sunk  shafts  and has  splendid looking ore on the dumps, but he is a  i>Jg-hearted fellow, and although he has plenty  0 gold in Smith's camp, he is strong in his  "enunciation of the Dominion government for  evymg a royalty on Yukon gold. There may  >e some selfishness in   Mr. Smith's  views, for  1 ie Last Chance ore is so rich that he may be  ���'unions lest the Dominion government levy a  loyalty on it also.    No  less  important is the  'Olconda group, in which extensive work has  ^en carried on under the management of Mr.  ��� L- Haas. The ore is rich and there is plenty  of it Kxmberley camp is also well worthy of  mention, as is also the new ;Camp beyond the  Copper, where Mr. Bryant has discovered his  Goldeif Treasure.", Boundary Creek is a  wonderful -district,, and; with .'transportation,  facmties lt8 output will exceed that of any  other district in British Columbia.  The reports-of the hardships of those who  tett tor the Yukon are', not pleasant -reading  and the  people of Boundary  Creek showed  their good sense by staying at home.���Boundary Creek Times.

MANITOBA'S  WHEAT  CROP.  Winnipeg, Aug. 26.���The first car of new  wheat to come forward this season  was received this, morning by the Northern Elevator  Company, having been shipped to them from  Deloraine.    The  wheat grades  No.   1   hard,  and is a clean, bright, well-filled sample.    No  price was quoted, as prices for this year's market yet remain to be fixed.    A gentleman connected with the  firm  said,   however:    4<You  may say it is worth-^xi^  Fort  William, and  present indications would point to that  as the  price for No. 1 hard.'v  One of the best informed millers in the city  received a telegram from the east to-day;  which stated that  information  being received  last iiight, but harvesting.'operatib^Svere' not  seriously delayed.; 'it is* estimated  that fully  75 per cent, of the Manitoba  wheat, crop/wilL ^  be cut by the end of the present  week.

The Fort Steele Prospector is informed that >  the gentlemen, who  are   putting in  a   water?  works system there have ordered  3000 feet of  piping for the street mains  and .5000; feet, of  smaller pipe for connections, and expect to be ,"  able to supply water within six weeks.,   They  are also  negotiating  for  a  complete electric  light plant consisting of a  four  horse  power  boiler,   two   engines,    two    dynamos,    wire,  lamps, etc., and they expect to have this plant  fully installed and the light turned  on  before  the shows  of winter come  on  again.      It  is  hoped  by  the   citizens  of   Fort  Steele  that:  their   sanguine   expectations    will   be    fully  realized.  According to the Slocan City News  Lemon  creek mining properties are rapidly  coming to  the front, and the prevailing low price of silver  is turning more and  more  attention   in  their  direction.      Up  and  down  the creek can be  heard the sound of blasting  here  and  there,  showing that  not only   is   assessment  work  being done all along the  line,   but  that,   notwithstanding the difficulty of getting  in supplies, considerable S5'stematic  development  is  also being carried dn.    Now that work on the  rail up Lemon creek has  already  been  commenced, the owners of mining  propositions in  that high grade gold district can look forward  to an early date  when  the  means  of ingress  and egress will be greatly improved.

Her tactics have already found   not  1 M|few imitators, and this   revival is  |-considered    ofa   piece with   gigot  sleeves and pelerines.    Fainting as  y a mode was imported to France from  England in the last  century,   after  the  Abbe    Prevost    attempted    to  moralize French society by translat-  JiiigRichardson's novels. The sensibi-  llity of   Pamela    found    numerous  irhitators    in    court    circles.    The  Revolution did not  cure Josephine  of her   Richards:>nian   sensiblerie.  Directly Napoleon found fault with  her milliner's bills, she  sank back  apparently lifeless on a   sofa.     Her  last faint was   when he  announced  his   determination   to   divorce  her.  Lady Hamilton   captivated   Nelson  by swooning the first time  she  set  eyes on him.    The  swoon  obliged  the  whole  court  to    rush  to  her  assistance, and  vastly  flattered the  hero.    From that day  forward, the  pretty Lady Nelson seemed a cold,  unimpressionable bore.    One of the  most adroit fainters  of our  grandmothers'   generation   was   Mme.de  Krudener, the Egeria of Alexander  the First*    Her first known   feat of  this kind was at a soiree, where  the  eloquence  of Mme.de  Stael  was  enthralling all the men.

["The  Great  Republic"   (nothing  J will surprise  those  who  do)  that  amongst all the wild rumors prevalent as to what the Dominion  government was preparing to do  in the premises, there was no hint  of any discrimination against American citizens, as such. Yet no  sooner was it reported that the  Ottawa cabinet were considering a  proposition to modify  the  existing  (Special   correspondence     Victoria I *ny cause  of ^^plaint  could be  Colonist.)���I see by the press  des-1 f���nd by lts Cltiz^s  against  Can  patches that some one   in your city | _^^m;m^  has drafted a series  of resolutions,  to   be   submitted   to    the   Ottawa  <  government, recommending that  there be incorporated in the Dominion mining laws regulations forbidding aliens (unless for five  years resident in British territory)  to own, lease or operate mining  claims.      Ot)   reading   the above it  occurred to me that it might be ofimiIUng reguIations, so as to meet  interest to vour readers to learn the Ithe new conditions presented by  exact status of the laws of the the almost unprecedented yield of  United States relating to alien If1*1 on the Klondyke region  ownership of mining property.

The effect of these laws is, as  will be seen, that no Canadian, or  (>ther British subject, may lawfully  pthera pan of auriferous gravel  ,n any territory subject to the con-  trol of the United States govern-  "^ent (including, of course, Alaska)  while American miners may freely  c*rry on their occupation in Canadian territory on an equal footing  u,ith British subjects.  l-'nder such circumstances it  would scarcely be supposed by one  n��t acquainted with the "tricks  ;m<1 the manners"  of the people of  They present a  fair  sample  of the  stuff   that   has    appeared   in   the  [journals of this   country   for   the  past   few    weeks,   and   truthfully  reflect the opinion  of the  masses.  Judge of the difficult position   of a  British   subject,     who   wishes   to  retain his self-respect,   among such  people.      Such   is their irradicable  prejudice that,   however  much   he  may desire to gain their friendship,  (and   aware   of their  many  good  qualities, he naturally  desires this)  he cannot do so  without admitting  that white  is   black   and   right is  wrong.      For  a  subject  of Great  Britain, loyal to the country of his  birth, to  succeed  in   any  walk   of  life in   the  United  States  is   well  nigh hopeless.    It is not alone that  the written laws stand in  the  way  of his  preferment to  certain   employments ; but there are far crueler  ones,  lex noii  scripta,   enacted by  common consent and kept  in   force  by   unreasoning   prejudice,   which  am  Every Department stocked  up with  New   Goods,   of   the   latest  Styles.  ,   \ _t * ^ i  ��� ih k * 1  h      ^  *   - ��j^  1 s��  bow down at our altars and worship  provisions by the simple expedient  -\ j  our gods, neither shall ye eat.''  It seems to me, Mr. Editor, that  equity would justify the enactment  by the Dominion parliament of  laws similar to those enacted by  the United States congress given  above, with a clause attached  limiting their application to the  citizens of countries enforcing  similar laws. The United States  could not consistently  complain of  such a law, because it  would be in  virtually say to  him,   " Except ye ' her power at any time to nullify its  of repealing her own.
