NELSON, B. C SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 19C3.  . ABiUMBEB 12  V^anada in JLvvidence  .-/Knowing covert belief which the  majority of mankind, places in soothsayers, aiid that much confidence is  , placed, iu the prognostications. of Old  Moore's Almanac by the lower classes  .-in this coutitTy,'one would almost be-  ������ .lleve.that some officiulof the Canadian  >'.Emigration- department had interviewed the editor of' this odd pubblica-  ti.on, seeing that the most happy anticipations held out in the comingycar  are mainly connected with Canada.  " Old Moore" tells us that at the commencement of tbe year '��� our sister col-  ony is skating with death, on .what  looks like very thin ice," but we are  glad to he assured " the fai r maiden  will not f*aU. .through," and we-are  greatly cheered hy reading that" Old  Moore" predicts " a most prosperous future for this grand country." In "February, we aire told that " Canadian rails  will he strong." During April the enterprising" Yankee will aparenUy.endeavor to make a corner in corn, and  as the prophet tells us that " England  Will be well on the alert, "and the  Yankees "will burn their fingers,"'we  feel comforted. _In July we are told to  expect news from British Columbia  **��� which willbringa heavy rush of miners to that colony." As British Columbia i3 a large territory, it is perhaps a  pity that " Old Moore" could not have  indicated more nearly the location. We  wonder if he has heard about there-  cent discovery of rich quartz in ..the  Ijardcaiidistrict? Tn September we get  this cryptic prophesy : "Tlie whole of  the Empire will have occasion to rejoice  on the'receipt of some wonderfully good  news which will corr.e to us by cable  jffoin Canada, business in many quarters will improve in consequence, and  the inercasc of emigration to that colony will be very rnaiked.'' "Old  .Moore's prophesies" niay very likely  help to swell the tide of emigration to  Canada, as his penny almanac is widely  read by the masses many of whom still  believe in Mother Shipton and others  of that ilk. She has nothing to'say  concerning, the B. -C. elections.���London H. C. Be view.  ews of the  ines  Now thnt the election campaign is j  over, there will be renewed interest in  the staple industry of the country.

Being the first  election on party lines in this province it is somewhat  difficult to even,arrive at any conclusion as to the result?. There are no very momentous questions to be  decided by'the ballots, and after all the whole question  simmers down to a matter of men. In many respects  the men. before the public are an improvement on the  past;'although it is generally conceded that it woiiid  haveJ>een much better had both sides abandoned  nearly all of the old material and started the new political era with a clean slate. As so mariy of the candidates are before the peoplefor the first time, noth-  ing can be said as to which party has the best men in"  thefield, most people inclining to one or the other'  side according as they see through party spectacles. -  To our mind tbe Conservative candidatc-s have a,  shade the best of it, although there are instances  where they fall short of the party ideal. As to the result  no one can tell. .Theret^eems to be a certain amount  of reason for believing'that the McBride Government  will be sustained, but it might happen that the majority  would beso slim as to render some kind of a coalition  necessary. Or on the other hand, if the Liberals won  by a slight majority it might be necessary to form a  combination with the opposite party. It is not likely*  that either side would relish the idea of placing their  liberty at the mercy of a balance of power controlled  by a handful of Socialists.  ".'Perhaps the"Nelson contest has aroused more'interest than any other in J;he province. Everyone is  conversant with the peculiar circumstances surrounding the fight here.    The two  men in the field have  had more or less experience in politics, and have left  nothing undone to secure victory, ft -has been a  contest that depended greatly on the work ofthe candidates for success, and it will be known in a few  hours what the result of that work has been. Two  weeks ago the election of Mr. Taylor by a large majority was generally conceded, but Mr. Houston and  his friends have been very busy the last few days, and  the complexion of the campaign has been somewhat  changed. That the Houstonites think so, is evidenced by their willingness to make bets on the result. More money will change hands on this contest  than, on any election in the history of Nelson. One  Taylor man alone claims to have $1800 on the result.  LastTnight at the Hume money was flowing as freely  as a spring freshet, and there were very few offers  from either side tbat were not promptly taken up.  Men vvho had never bet a cent on anything-before,-  "flashed bills of all denominations ih the faces of their  opponents. ;       _>  , Mr. Taylor claimed a majority of 283, while Mr.,  Houston gave out to his friends; th at the-result of the  election would be: Houston, 491 ; Taylor, 390;  absent and not voting, about 95. It will be seen tonight whether Mr. Taylor or Mr. Houston js tbe  shrewdest calculator. Others who have less 'interest  in the result incline to the belief that' little'-depend-  euce can be placed in the figures given out, as there  ci^re'over one hundred men -who would not commit  themselves as to how they would vote, many of whlpm  may have decided not to voteall. Undoubtedly this  vote has had a great influence on the election, if it  has not decided it one way or the other.  Wise Men's   I  gnqrance  L - *'�� ���?;  yzm  Now and then one meets with passages in the works of the most celebrated authors which display an ignorance of things that every schoolboy is  supposed to know.  Sir Walter Scott In his '* Heart or  Midlothian" speaks of his heroine as  having " the merit of thosa peacemakers to whom it is pronounced aa a benediction that they shall inherit the  earth." Born and bred and passing  bis life in Bible reading Scotland, Six  Walter was yet ignorant of the feet  that it was to the meek that the inheritance of the earth was promised, and  the benediction of the peacemakers was  that " they shall be called the children  of God "  Dickens in his " Tale of Two Cities"  says " the name of the strong man of  the Scripture descended to the chief  functionary who worked the guillotine." One does not have to be a profound student ofthe French revolution  to know that the notorious executioner.  who-chopped offkeadsin the Place de  la BevjoHition was named Sanson and  not Samson. " -  The lowest pupil on the loweat class :  in history in the public schools Knows .-  that it was Balboa who-discovered the-"  Pacific ocean,, yet Keats fn his Immortal sonnet/' On First Looking into  Chapman's jefomer" makes Cortes the  man who stood " silent upon a. peak Lit  Darien" and saw the great" south'sea" -  stretching away before him.      ���*  The gTeat Gibbon who was so Ihtol-  rant of    the errors of other. men,  speaks in his "BomanEraplre" ofthe  Oxus and the Jaxartes, two rivers of'  ancient renown which descend from  the mountains of India toward the  Caspian Sea."    Yet every 'school igeo- -  graphy shows that tbe two rivers flow  into tbe sea of Aral,' and the Jaxartes  most certainly rises in no " mountains  of India." -V   '  Shakespeare wrote of" tbe oaaat of  Bohemia " and in his " Gertrude of-  Wyoming" Campbell had tigers pxjnrS-  ing through the jungles of-Pennsylvania.

Mr. Taylor was not invited to attend, but many present incline to the belief that the  Liberal candidate had enough supportersat that meeting to accord bim a good reeceptioii had he decided to be present. "Others are just as strong in the belief that the meeting was Houston in its sympathy. Mr. Houston addressed the meeting at length, and repeated his charges of a few weeks ago.  This time Mr. Taylor was not present to make any contradictions. Whether or not Mr. Htiustori  made any converts will never be known. It is doubtful if. public meetings change many votes. The  Taylor men who did not attend the meeting were said to be busy at their committee rooms, getting  ready for the fray. This morning both candidates were out bright and early. In Mr. Houston's eyes  gleamed the blood 01 an old political warliorse. He met Lis friends at the committee rooms and issued  instructions for the work in hand. His Lieutenant, Dave McBeth, remained up all night so as to be  up in time to get to work early. Each man was given his work to do, and everyone who knows  how' John Houston carries on his campaign fully reafizss that the'work would be well and faithfully  performed. He always knows where every vote is, and the right time to get it and where it will do  most good. So Avell has he looked after this work that it is.estimated every outside vote for his side  has beeu brought in. At noon it was believed lhat a great deal more than half his vote had been  polled. .. '-...-:  - It must not he supposed that Mr. Taylor hg.voyerlooked any bets in the campaign. His friends  claim that bis machinery was inmost iu perfect running order, and those who know the man can readily understand that such would-'be-the case. La^tfnight he spent giving instructions as to how'the  - the work was to be carried on to-day and so well, bag he the matter in baud, that it is believed he is  getting every vote promised him to the polls. His canvass was conducted on modern lines. Whenever a vote that he had any doubt of was promised him he had it canvassed by two or three others,  so that he would know almost accurately how the voter stood. Very many who promised Mr. Taylor  weie thus marked off for his opponent.  The display of fruit and farm produce at the Kamloops exhibition was  excellent, ancLthe,.number, of entries  very; large. * In-the A$o��k;dei��rtinettt  there was a vast improvementrin this  over previous-years both" lit-point'of  numbers and grade. Dairy- produce  was well represented and the exhibits  of fruit and bread testified to the interest taken, in. the- household department. The total number of exhibits  was considerably in excess of any previous year.  Victoria fishermen are making large  catches of cohoes, which axe running  freely iu the straits and in the waters  off* Beacon Hill.  The only apparent exception to the  rule of police quietude in Nanaimo is  molestation of Chinamen, which occasionally proceeds at the hands of men  and boys. One offender has just been  fined for an assault upon a Mongolian  and the police would like to trace certain boys, wan ted in respect of a like  offence. Otherwise the town is most  orderly and police court charges continue to be few and far between.  .

Before another number of Tin: Economist is in the hands of its renders the  electors of British Columbia will have  decided whether their fortunes shall be  entrusted to the trusteeship of Mr. McBride and his colleagues arid su importers  or to .the doubtful issue of a caucus of  elected Liberal   members.    That there  will be some elected Liberal members  we hope and believe ; that there will  not be a majority of them wc believe  -��� and trust.   In any event wc hope that  the ministers who may be installed in  office as a result of this struggle w ill remember that tbeyare trustees not proprietors and that  in future the Legislature of this fair province w ill resemble  more closely than it has ever done in  the past an assembly of wise or at least  rational men whose chief concern will  be the advancement if Ihe moral, mental and material intercuts of those who  have chosen them as llu-ir representatives.  We hope that t'ic ibo'iic of the electors has fallen on the Conservative  party,t but", if Fortune shnil have  shown her tendency to caprice, we  shall still hope tbat a Liberal administration muy aw:ikc to a sbiise of responsibility. History has levurded  some instances of progressive and efficient government by Liberal rulers,  and, if the worse bef.ill u.x, all  hope will not be dead and buiicd.  "There are .candidates in the field on  both sides who have been in thep:ist a  detriment and a curse lo thiir constituencies, their parties and their  province.

In "Olidpters Prom My Diplomatic  ���Life," vhich Andrew B. White, the  United States diplomatist, is contributing to "Tho Century Illustrated Magazine," tiiere occurs an interesting reminiscence regarding the working ol the German marriage laws:���  "One morning a man eame rushing in  exclaiming! 'Mr. Minister, I am in tho  worst fix that any decent man was ever  in. I ���want you to help mc out of it;'  and ho then went on with a hitter tirade against everybody and everything i��  the German Empire.  "When his wrath had effervesced somewhat he stated his case as follows:������  'Last year whilo travelling through Germany I fell in love with a young German lady, and after my return to America became engsigcd to her. I have now  come for my bride. The wedding is fixed  for next Thursday; our steamer��� passages aro taken a day or two later, and  I find that tho authorities will not allow  mo to marry unless I present a multitude of papers such aa 1 never dreamed  Of I Some of them it will take months  to get, and some ��� I can never  get. Mv Intended bride is in distress;  ier family evidently distrust me; tlie  wedding is postponed indefinitely; and  my business partner is cabling me to  come lack to America as soon as possible. I am asked for a-baptismal certificate���a. Taufschein. Now, so far as  I know, I waa never baptised.   I am re-  ?uired to present a certificate showing  he consent of my parents to my mar-  Tlage���I, a man thirty yeaTa'"old, and in  'ft large business of my own I I am asked  -_*�� 81V*8 bonds for the payment of my  debt* in Germany; I owe no such debts';  but I know no one who will give such a  ���bond. I am notified that the banns must  be published a certain number of times  before the wedding.    What kind  of  a  country is this, -anyhow 1'  "We did the best we could,- In an interview with Uie Minister of Public;  .Worship I was able to secure a dispensation, from the publishing of the "banns;  then a bond was drawn up, which 1  signed, and thu3 settled the question re-  farding possible debts iu Germany. ��� As  o the baptismal certificate, I ordered  inscribed, on the largest.possible sheet ol  official paper, the gentleman's .affidavit  that In the State of Ohio where he ���\yas  .born no Taufschein, or baptismal ceftifi  oate, was required at the time of hit  .birth, and to this was affixed with plenty  of wax the largest seal of the Legation.  .The, form of the affidavit may be judg'.d  ;peculiar, but it wais thought best not tc  'startle the authorities with the admis  sion that the man had not been baptisei'  ���at all. They cjuld ensily believe tliat j>  iState: like Ohio, which some of there  "doubtless regarded as stilL in the back  :woods and mainly tenanted by the abov  jigiries, might have omitted in days gon'  ���by to require, a Taufschein, but that ai  itmbaptised Christian should offer hiiiisel*  [to be married in Germany would per  '.haps have so paralyzed their powers o  IbeUef that permission for the mari'iag*>  jmight never have been secured.  I "In this and various other ways w>  'overcame the difficulties, and though th.  | wedding did hot take place upon-the ti\i  ppintea day, and the return to Amerin;  'had, to be deferred, the couple at last  jafter marriage first before the public an  ���thoribtes and: then in church, were ab.h  Ito depart in" peace."

The Paris correspondent of the "Pall  Mall Gazette" recently1 attended a lunch-  con given by M. Dessing-Whitniore,  which was distinctly original. The tabic,  lhe says, took the form of a-hoat, arid the  waiters wero dressed as sailors. There  was a. distinctly nautical flavor. about  the whole thing, and during the boss  d'ouvres and dessert a sailor-'s chorus  was sung. Not being a particularly  good sailor, the perpetual motion of the  ���table���which, it appears, took some time  to get in working order���was not fo-r me  the moat enjoyable sensation of the oc-  caaian. I waa able, however, to apprei-i-  g&ajg^fextsntj sith whicb it had .bean  planned, as riot an article'ever rolled���or  even attempted to roll���off the tabic'  To make the scene more realistic a canvas was hung on the -walls, on which was.  painted a somewhat rough sea..

Thrift is generally acknowledged to ha  one of the leading characteristics of the |  natives of  Fifeshire, and it  never . was ���  more  forcibly  exemplified than  in  tho':  person of David Hatton, a native of Dun- j  fermline, who actually proved that even  mice, those acknowledged pests of mankind, could be'made not only to  earn!  their own living,'but also to yield a re-l  spcctable income to  their owners, says j  the "Scotsman."  About the year 1820 this gentleman  actually erected a small mill at Dunfermline for the manufacture of thread���a  mill worked entirely by mice. It was  whilo visiting Perth prison in 1812 that  Mr. Hatton first conceived this remarkable idea of utilizing ���mouse power. In  an old pamphlet of the time, "The Curl-,  osity Coffee Room," he gave an account  of tho way in which the idea^dawned on  him.  "In the summer of the year  1812," ho wrote, "I had occasion to be in Perth, and when  inspecting'the..toys and trinkets that  were manufactured by the French prisoners in the depot there my attention  was involuntarily attracted by a little  toy house with a wheel in the gable of.  it that was runrlins rapidly round, impelled by the insignificant gravity of a  common house mouse. For a shilling I  purchased house, mouse and wheel. Inclosing it in a handkerchief, on my journey homeward I was compelled to contemplate its favorite amusement. But  how to apply half-ounce power, which is"  the weight of a mouse, to a useful purpose "was. the difficulty. At length the  manufacturing of sewing thread seemed  the most practicable."  Mr. Hatton had one mouse that Tan  the amazing distance of eighteen miles a  day, but he proved that an ordinary  mouse: could run ten and one-half miles  on an average.' A halfpenny's worth of  oatmeal waa sufficient for its support  for thirty-five days, during whicti it Tan  736 half miles. He had actually two  mice constantly employed in'the making  of sewing thread for more than a year  The mo.use threadmill waa so constructed  that the common house mouse was en  abled to make atonement to society for  past offences by twisting, twining, and  reeling from 100 to 120 threads a day  Sundays not excepted. ������ /.���  To perform this task the little pedes  trian had to run ten and one-half miles  and this journey it performed with east  every day. A halfpenny's; worth of oat  meal served one of these threadmill ful.  prits for the long period of five-week?  In that time it made 3,350 threads o'  twenty-five inches, and ��3 -a penny wn-  paid to women for every hank made ii  the ddinary way, the mouse, at tha'  rate, earned 9 pence every six weeks  just one farthing a day, or 7 shilling;  and 6 pence a year. Taking 6 pence"of1  for board and allowing 1 shilling for ma  chinery, there was clear yearly profl'  from each mouse of 6 shillings.  Mr. Hatton finrily intended to appb  for the loan of the old empty cathedra'  in. Dunfermline, which would have held  he "calculated, ten thousand mouse mills  sufficient room being left for keepers anc  some hundreds of spectators. Death  however, overtook the inventor beforr  his marvelous project could be -carriw*  out.  Hugging an Illusion.  The .newspaper editors and very  special correspondents, who have latel.v  been discussing Papal ^possibilities wibi  such owlish gravity, must have felt ra  ther cheap when the news came thai  Giuseppe Sarto, whom .they had nevei  even heard of, had been elected" as th  two hundred and sixty-fourth Pope, unde  the name of Pius the Tenth���a name, b\  the way, endued with no particular od>  ^ofisanctity -by Ats last Papal possessoi  But tho new Pius seems to"bV"ifriihn"o"  "character. "Cultured," "religious,1  "mild-mannered," "pious," "a countn  mouse," "quiet," "kind-hearted," "liber  al," "'timid"���these are some of the epi  thets applied to the late Patriarch o  Venice tuid hew Pope of Rome. Tin  same authorities, however, deny hni  political shrewdness, diplomatic craft  and'executive ability. They predict thai  ho will be not a statesmanly but a "re  ligious" Pontiff.  All interest at this time, oL-course  centers on the policy of Pius with-reference to the Italian 'Government. It i  already clear that it will differ "in r.<  vital particular front that of Leo th.  Thirteenth. The new Pontiff is cvci  quoted as saying significantly: "My firs  pleasure will be to explore the garden  which now confine my little world  Heigh ho! How I sluill iniss my ion;  country tramps���and the seat" TMils, i  authentic, shows plainly enough thai  Pius, like Leo, will be "a prisoner in tin  Vatican." Doubtless, however, ns tin  despatches indicate, his personal likinj  for tho King and-Queen, especially tin  lather, will make the relations betw.eer  Quirinal and Vatican smoother tt.ni?  more  amicable than heretofore.

Later   on vit  became   positively   out  of  fashion  to   "tip"  in   the   hotel;   but  it  seems the fashion of scolding and complaining grew, afc least the girls say so.  Then the girls held a meeting and decided, to w>lk out.   The management of the  "hotel declares that  the gir!3 were discharged "because the hotel wanted to try  men waiters.  Afc a recent meeting of the Zoological  ���Society   of  France   Monsieur  Racovitza,  -.the naturalist of the "JSclgica" expedition,,  ���declared   his .belief  in   the   existence  of  ihe great "sea-serpent."   He quoted with  approval the views of a Dutch natural-  ���jsfc,  Oudemans, who holds   that the so-  called sea-scipent is not a reptile, but -a,  -mammal belonging to  the   order, of the.  pinnipeds, which includes the seals.    It  somewhat resembles in shape^the' extinct  Plesiosaurus.      It   probably    attains   a  length of 2C0  feet, the head and neck  'taking   one-fourth    of    the, whole,  the  trunk one-fourth and the tail one-half.  ���It never approaches  a coast except in  pursuit   0!   the  fish   on whieh'it. feeds;  Slonsieur Racovitza. quoted   the  serious  and circumstantial  report  of  a.
