HAD   BRAINS   FOR   TWO  For an Hour and a Half He Entertained    a    Large  Audience.  .   <.  The glory of Dawson City bus departed, so far as romance goes, and  the man from Dawson is glad and  proud to boast of the fact. Like  the respectable citizen who has been  a gay blade in bis youth, the man  from Dawson will tell of the hot  times of '98 and '99. But to-day he  and his town are uninterestingly  respectable. Ago has brought wisdom to both, but age has not killed  lnemor}', says Day by Day in The  News, Toronto.  In 1898 ��� there was a very grand  cabin in Dawson, owned by a man  who is well-known in Ontario���Joe  Boyle, once of Woodstock, afterwards of London, Melbourne, New-  York, and various widel}' separated cities. Joe Boyle and his brother Charley, the horseman, have  been rolling stones, but each has  gathered moss.  The story of the way Joe went to  Dawson and the adventures bo had  on the journey, would make the average   novelist   sorrowfully   admit  that actualities put imagination out  of business, so to speak.    In '90 Joe  Boyle was out on lhe Pacific Coast,  whither he had returned from Australia after having had in the Antipodes "an unsuccessful promenade,"  as our French friends would put it.  With Boyle  had come  from   Australia Frank Slavin, in his prima a  second-rate  heavyweight   pugilist,  who had never becomoa topuotchor  owing to too much good nature and  a reluctanco to adhere to the  rule.-s  of strict training.    Slavin had boon  a placer miner in  Ausirdia beforo  he entered tho prize ring, and when  tho rush to the gold Holds of tho Yukon began ho and Boyle decided to  go  thither.     Neither of  thorn had  moro than a fow dollars, but Boyle  had brains for two.    lio had a good  education, a taking manner, and a  physique thnt  would  have helped  him had ho, like bin friend gone in  for bruising.     lOven as an ainotonr  Boylo wuh a mighty  hiindy  man  vvith hit) lists,  Thoro   thoy wore, thoso two   ud-  vonturors, stalled in   Seattle with  hardly enough money to keep them  for a weok or  ho, or  to  pay   for a  deck   pussago lo .Juneau,  Alaska.  Tho IniHinoBB man of tho twain hooii  mado up his mind.     It was a ohho  of "Alaska," and tho  tickets   woro  bought.   Fivo days later, with por-  hnpH ton dollars left, they and thoir  Bounty belongings arrived at Jun-  ottii, and tho noxt  thing wiih to got  moro cash.     Boylo looked around,  and  thought ho saw a chance  of  making a Blake.     lio  wont to tbe  proprietor nf Ihn only hall in town  and hirod it.     Ho  and   his friend  iBluvIn, tho  world-famed  pugilist,  would,  ho  announced, give  a red  hot boxing exhibition   in the hall,  and no gentleman who  considered  himself to   bo an   up-tn ditto   sport  would stay away.    Tickets live dollars.     There  wan a printing ollieu  in tho town, and  by the  afternoon  of   tho light n hundred   or  ro   had  boon Hold.     Slavin nnd  lloyb i-aw  their way to Dawson.  as they appeared. The territory of  Alaska is governed direct from  Washington, and the officer in command of the army post at Juneau  was a strict constructionist. He  had been instructed to allow no dis-  orderliness in town, and he considered a boxing match to be dis  orderly. The opening of the performance was due. The hour arrived, and with it the commandant  and a file of men. Addressing the  crowd, the representative of the  Government announced that he was  going to permit no fighting, either  glove or bare fist. The miners  ''booed," but there was no moving  that warrior.  Boyle, however, walked out to the  front of the stage and addressed the  roomful of rough fellows. "Gentlemen," he said, "you have all heard  what the commandant says. I  didn't know there was any regulation against boxing in this camp,  or I wouldn't have sold you the  tickets. It is clear that there can  be no exhibition, but I can see a  piano in that corner, and if you  will kindly excuse me a few minutes, Mr. Slavin will give an exhibition of bag-punching. After  that it will be up to me and the  piano. And I beg��to state that if  any gentleman desires to have his  money back, he can get.it."  The Bo3'le dived behind the  skimpy scenery, and got out of the  tights he had donned for the boxing  show, and into bis street clothes.  The miners sat tight and watched  Slavin smite the bag. In a few  minutes, Boyle emerged from the  impromptu dressing room, rolled  the piano to the footlights, and sat  down. Tbe surprised crowd found  that they had with them in the  stalwart young fellow with the  clean-cut visage,an entertainer that  kept them laughing and applauding from tho moment ho touched  the first key. Slavin was as surprised as any of the others.  Boyle had never told him that he  knew a note ; yet here  was Boyle,  singing songs   in   a   full, rich baritone,   telling   stories that sent the  Argonauts and sailors into fits and  generally behaving liko a sub-Arctic Grossmith.    Slavin smiled placidly ; lit bis pipe nnd went down  and joined the audience.    Ho knew  that   Dawson   was   a  go.    Along  about 11   o'clock   Boylo,  who  had  boon giving a monologue for about  an   hour  and   a-half,,   announced  that tho  show   was over, but  the  audionco would   not havo  it   that  wny  hy   any   moans.     Thoy   protested  that they wero ready to pay  anothor livo dollars ouch, but  thoy  wanted moro songs,   moro  RtorioB,  morn   music,    Boylo,  beaming, assured them that he wiih honored by  their appreciation, but that ho and  bin partner would   not  accopt  anothor cent.    Then ho  went  on for  twenty  minuttiH  or ho, and  when  tho lights wont out ho was tho most  popular man in Juneau.

Brown   nnd   Hurdle; nntlutni, "Ono  The celebration of Dominion Day1  in Nelson was  in many  respects a  success,  but it. would   have   been  much  more  enjoyable   had  there  been a small amount of intelligence  dieplayed in the arrangement of the  various events which went to makb  up the celebration.     As it was, it  was   absolutely  impossible  to   tell  when or where   an event was going  to  take  place, aDd   the  few   programmes   distributed   were   worse  than useless in so far as being able  to  throw  light on the  matter was  concerned.     Even  Charles Waterman, vvho waB called  in at the last  moment to straighten out the affair,  admitted  that he could  not make  head or  tail of the business.     For  instance, the   great  attraction  the  first day   was the  lacrosse  match.  This event was  announced to take  place at 3  o'clock  sharp.     Yet it  was half-past four before the match  started, and in the  meanwhile the  players were forced to stand aronnd  in the damp waiting  to start, and  worse    than    even  this  was   the  fact  that tho spectators  who  had  paid their good  money  to see the  game were compelled to witness one  of  the worst   exhibitions of baseball   over   played on any field in  Canada. Of course it was explained  that the baseball  gamo had to bo  postponed on account of the rain,  but it would havo been very oasy  for the commiutoe to havo arranged  a shortor game, and not havo compelled the spectators to  remain for  an  hour and a-half  for tho only  ovent in which they had any interest.   This was only ono of tho complaints mado against tho committee  or ralhor against tho mombor oftho  committoo who was responsible for  tho delay.   Tho  first day  it was  almost   absolutely   impossible   to  got a programme, for  what roaBon  thero has  aa  yet  beon no explanation.   Ab was boforo Baid, this was  not as groat a drawback  as might  seem  at llrst, for tho sports  woro  arranged utterly  regardless of programme or system.   Tho various  events woro bo dovolailed into oaoh  othor   that   a   program mo   would  havo only added to tho confusion.  But tho committoo is ontitlod to  somo credit for tho variotyand number  of  attr notions   soon rod.    Tho  great ovont was tho laorosHO match.  It is doubtful if thoro wan ovor as  many congregated in tho recreation  ground  uh  on  tho  two  days   tho  matches  took  place.

Both matches wore splendid exhibitions of the national game, certainly  tho host ovor noon in tho Kootonay.  Tho Now  Westminster team just-  to     perfection,     which    told     in  the long run.     On the other hand,  the Nelson team   at times  showed  lack of training, but  in  a  general  way proved that they are the material out of which great lacrosse players are made.    Without desiring to  detract in the least from the merits  of the other players, The   Economist   feeld  that a special word of  praise  is  due D.  Blackwood and  Paul     Greyerbiehl.       Blackwood  played   as scarcely another   man  on  either  team  played,    and  his  work  was  that  of a  player   who  could hold his own on any team in  Canada.   Greyerboihl is a wonder]  for a boy who has only been  playing a yoar or so, and should  somo  day hocomo ono of tho best goal  keepers   in    Canada.     The   Jeffs  brothers, Friday, Taylor, Williamson, Porrior, McNiohol, Thompson,  Knox  and Mitchell  gave  a good  acoount of themselves, whilo Hawkins waa all that could bo desired as  a field captain.   For tho Now Westminister  team,  whilo    all  played  woll, Turnbull and Lynch wero ontitlod tospooial mention.   Tho Now  Westminister team waa composed of  S. Gray, A. W. Gray, Galhraith, T.  Gilford, W. Gifford, Pool, Turnbull,  Foonoy, Latham, Lynch, Oddy, and  Dobeck,   with   tho    votorun    Bob  Choney as Hold captain.   Tho result of tho mutch tho first day wiib  3 to 1 in favor of Now  Westminister, and 8 to 8 in favor of tho samo  toatn tho second day.   Dr. McLennan acted as referee tho first maloh  and ltoht. II. Carloy tho second.  Tho baseball match between  Northport and Rossland tho first  day waa a vilo exhibition of tho  gamo, and resulted in a score of 12  to 7 in favor of Northport. Tho  second match, botwoon Nolson and  Northport, was muoh hotter, tho  Northport team winning by a scoro  of 8 to 5. Althouuh dofoatod tho  Nelson team played well, particularly Giogorich, Nelson's right  Holder, and Harry Houston.  Tlio quoit gamo attracted nomo  interest. Tho first day tho Hcores  mado woro: Smith 81. vs. Wulloy  28; Walloon 81 vs. Watchorn 23;  Nunn 31  vh. Jones   30;   Watson  J. A. Macdonald, the Ro-sland  barrister, is likeJyto get the Liberal  nomination for Rossland.  that game on both days. The  feature of the match wae the. playing of Mrs. Scott and Miss Falding,  of Rossland, and Mrs. Hedley and  Miss Hammond, of Nelson, the  latter two defeating the former ia  a closely contested match.  The drilling contests excited considerable interest. The competing  teams the first day were: Stanley  McLennan and H. Thomey, of Pilot  Bay, workers in the North Star  mine; and H. Hagarty and Ed.  Taylor, of the Ymir mine, Tho  first prize was won hy Stanley  MacLennan and II. Thomey, North  Star mine, 34 1-4 inches; tho second prize by H. Hagarty and Ed.  Taylor, Ymir mino, 29 inches. The  second day throe teams entered:  MacLennan nnd Thomey, North  Star mine; Hagarty and Taylor, of  tho Ymir mine; and McDonald and  McGillivray of tho Union Jack,  Tho North Star mon won tho first  prize with 84 1-4 inches, and tho  Ymir men second with 31 inches,  in the singlo drill contest, Gallagher of the Granite mine won first  prize, 0 8-4 inches, and Kiloel, of  Nolson, second, 0 1-4 inches.  Tho firemen's races aro always  an attractive feature of celebrations  in tho Kootonay. Nolson firemen  havo a groat record in thoso races,  This yoar a team composed of: T.  Lillio, ohiof; II.

In tho 100 yard hundlcap footrace  .looThompson came in first and .1,  Chambers second. C. Broil won  the 100 yards for amateurs  and A, Park was second.  Thoro woro Kiveral other foot races  held on linker street in tho evening  li, Kirby and Harry Houston boing  the principal winners.  Altogether tho Dominion Day  celebration of 1903 was ono thnt in  entitled to a place in tho history of  Nelson.  In   the language of the market  reports, the movement in politics is  steady, but the volume is not heavy.  The Liberals are getting   their candidates in the field throughout the  province and are already canvassing with a determination to win if  possible.    There is no lack of Conservative material,  and every constituency will be keenly contested.  The majority of the electors are discussing politics and manifesting a  keen interest in the fight.    The��fact  that this   is the   first  election   on  party lineain the province deprives  the amateur politician of  material  for criticism, but both sides suffer  from  the  same disadvantage, so it  is even up.    While it is more than  likely the debaters will have to.fall  back on   Dominion issues, it seems  probable that the  party line   fight  will   be.   fnirlyweli   maintained  throughout the province.    But men  are likely to count in  the contest.  The mix-up in provincial politics  in this province has.served to alienate men from  the old parties,  and  as  a  consequence  hostile  feelings  have been aroused between men belonging  to the same old party but  opposed to each other in provincial  matters  that aro not likely to be  obliterated all at once.    You can*  not be persistent in calling a man a  political outcast for a year and then  turn  around   and   paint   him   an  angel.    Moreover there is a general  feeling on  tho part of the  doctors  to start right, and get the best men  in   tho   field, even  if  thoir  partj  should go down.   Tho  majority of  mon feel that it is of moro advantage to tho  provinco  that  a good  govommont should bo installed at  Victoria than that  a  more  party  victory should   bo   gained.     Both  Conservatives and Liberals nro now  starting tho process of building up  parties in this provinco, and   thoir  credit with  the pooplo will depend  entirely on tho men  thoy put   forward  and   their   capacity for  tho  work of legislation.    Both partios  must bo careful  to oliminaio  tbo  grafter element.  The Revelstoke Herald says:  "S S. Taylor, K. C, has been nominated by the Liberals to contest  Nelson riding. R. S. Lenrie will  snow him under. The Grit man ia  a new comer, only having been five  years in B. C."  It is altogether probable lhat Mr.  F. J. Deane will contest Kamloops  district in the Liberal interest  against Mr. Fulton, Conservative.  In the Grand Forks dirstict there  are any   number of candidates on  both sides.    Phoenix Conservatives  want   co   run    Majror   Rumberger  and Grand Forks Conservatives are .  anxious to  see   Mayor  Burriil  in  the field.    The Liberals are discussing the respective  merits of  Neil  McCallum  and W. H. P. Clement.  Mr. McCallum   was a fellow voya-  geur with W. Galliher   on the Nile  in 1884 and 18S5, and Mr.' Clement  is the  author of   the-high   School  history of Canada.  J. M. Kellie, for many years  representative for Revelstoke district in the Legislature, has returned from the east, and' informs  the editor of the Revelstoke Herald  that he did not get,the appointment  of postmaster, and that it is none  of the editor's business what he  went oast for. Mr. Kellie is  seriously considering another attempt for the Legislature, as the  Liberal candidate for  Revelstoke.  Greenwood Liberals meet on tho  17th to select a candidate.  It is again stated that John L.  Retailick will be the Liberal nominee in Kaslo district.  Somo ono haa started tho rumor  that William MacAdams will run  in the Labor interest in the Slocan.  William Blakemoro is said to  have aspirations in the direction of  being tho Labor candidate in  Fernie district. .  Harry Bentley and \V. R. Ross,  barrister, aro rogardod as aspirants  for tho Conservative nomination in  Fernie constituency.  Fiona Trail it is roportod that a  Nolson man is seeking tho Conservative nomination for Ymir district,  Fred Stoik.of Fernie, nnd Dr.  Wilson of MorrUi-oy Minos, are being pushed its candidates for tho  Femio dfstiict iu tho Liberal in-  torosl.  Tho  following   candidates  havo  already boon solectod:' Island, T,  W. Patterson,  Liboral;  Nelson, It.  S. Lennie, Conservative, S. S.Taylor,  Liberal;  Slocan,  It.  A, llrnd-  shuw, Liboral;  Okanagan,  T.   W,  Sterling,  Liboral;  New   Westminister, Thus, Gifford,   Conservative.  Of course tho ministers will run for  thoir ��� M i' nstituencioH, except Mr. I  Wilson, who will contest a Cariboo'  constituency.  In tho district of Similkameen  thero are candidates galore. 11. G.  Sidloy, J. P., and W. J. Snodgrass  aro mentioned as Liberal candidates  whilo W. T. Shatford of Fuirviow,'  Henry Nicholson, J. P., of Gump  MoKinney, and II. II.

Taylor,  the Victoria   barrister   who  cave evidence before the Royal  Commission,  ims ii-Mud ,i  letter dealing   with   the inquiry  into tin- Columbia   Western   Railway grants.  Mr.   T.��\l<.r   deals    exhaustively   with    the  evidence   i.f   Mr.   Wells   before   the Commis-  j-ion,   enj'hasizing   several    points   that   the  fii'eudi. < /   the Chief  Commissioner  have not  bi-en a'lie u> explain satisfactorily.      Why did  the government, after  making the grants  to  tho C. I'. it., attempt to impose additional de-  niaucld on the railway company, is a question  that ha.- not yet been answered.     Mr. Taylor  points oni wherein Mr.   Wells' testimony was  most inconsistent, and supplies  the probable  motive of the hostility  of Messrs. Wells and  Prentice" to himself.      He flagellates with a  whip oi  scorpions   the bibulous  Prentice, but  the Hogging is  not  a bit   too severe  for  th9  man K'ho dared under the privileges of Parliament to make a cowardly attack on a person  v. ho- had no opportunity of defending himself.  Mr. laylur concludes his letters thus:  " Tne hist act was ushered in with the ed-  ihiug hj tctacle of a Government in a minor-  i.y and \<ithout supply.

It is to be hoped that the mission of Hon-  Mr. Green and Hon. Mr. Wileun to Ottawa  will result in acccnaplithing the objects for  which the journey is made. There should be  tn understanding at once between the Dominion aud Provincial governments with regard  to oriental immigration lo Canada, and the  Dominion government should hesitate before  disallowing acts passed dealing with this  question. The delegation will talk over mining matters with the Dominion ministers with  the object of getting an arrangement that will  be cf some practical use lo the country.  In selecting A. E. McPhillips for the office  of Attorney-General, Premier McBride showed  wisdom and a desire to acquiesce in the demands of the people for honest, efficient officials. Mr. McPhillips is regarded by political friend and political foe as a man who  cannot be corrupted, and who will ever place  duty above mere party advantage. A man of  sterling integrity, he can be depended upon to  administer lhe affairs of his oflice vvith strict  impartiality, having regard only to the inalienable righis of the people. It is quite conceivable that a man of the stamp of Hon. Mr.  McPhillips would have enemies even in his  own camp, but these enemies are men who aie  not likely to look wiih favor upon any man  who is incorruptible and above reproach.  They are only in the party for what there is  in it, and would deal with the other party if  they thought for a moment they could advance  their own interests.  Although only a few weeks in office, Premier McBride  has  demonstrated that he has a  complete  grasp  of   the requirements of  his  position.    He  has gone about  his work in a  business-like  way, and as a result has won  over to liis side a great   number of men who  are anxious to Bee the country restored to the  prosperous conditions of five years ago.  As a result of the controversy now going on  between C. Dell-Smith and Al. Parr, the Liberal candidate for Ymir district, it would  appear lhat the latter could have spent his  time more profitably than by wriiing letters  to newspapers. So far, Dell teems to havo  much the best of the argument.  An aspirant for political honors who announced that he would this week organize a  committee of thirty for campaign purposes, has  so far not been able to aecuro more than three  to act on hia committee.

The political situation generally is likely to  remain somewhat torpid for a few weeks.  Even politicians have a decided disinclination  to becoming active at a season of the year  when nature has completed her most arduous  labors and peacefully awaits fruition and harvest.  Fort Steele Prospector.  The much talked about blocks 4,593 and  -i.oO-i in Southeast Kootenay are in the possession of this province, and in due and proper time will be thrown open to the public by  the McBride government, notwithstanding  the pipe dream published by the Vancouver  World., .  Grand Forks Sun.  There seems to be a disposition on the part  of some prominent politicians at the coast, and  even in Nelson, to assume authority in local  party affairs, which, in the opinion of this paper they are not entitled to. And this assumption is not confined to would-be coast  dictators ia the Liberal party, bnt similar  manifestation of unwarranted interference is  discernablo in the Conservative party. Those  self constituted leaders must retire from the  exercise of control over the interior, under the  new party-line conditions, which they enjoyed  ���by tolerence under the former system.  Phoenix Pioneer.  The opposition press is charging Premier  McBride with making a deal with theC. P. R.,  and thereby keeping prospectors off the two  coveted blocks of coal lands in East Kootenay.  and at the same time securing sinews of war  for election purposes. The reply is made that,  as the C. P. It. has announced its intention to  fight for the lands in question through the  courts, it would bo bad policy to deal with  these blocks till the question of title is jud-  ically t-ettled. To a man up the tree it would  seem that Premier McBrido is right, notwithstanding the so-called righteous indignation  that this decision has brought out.  Grand Forks News-Gazette.  It is about time for the Canadian public to  awako lo the fact that tho greatest fortunes of  the present and of tho futuro will be made in  mining enterprises. Incidentally, we hope  somo skeptical person will read these lines and  this prediction, so that in the very near future  wo may havo tho satisfaction of saying, "we  told you so." Whon wo predict that a groat  mining activity id slowly but surely getting  underway ut tho present moment, wo are moro  thun sincere ; wo aro positive.

Mr. Garrmvay stood tip as young  Sirs. Bradshaw roso from lice seat at  the dinner table. Ifc Lad been rather a  quiet dinner, and ha l>ad had to do  nearly all tho talking. Bradshaw opened tho door, and Mr. Gamuvay noticed  that each avoided looking at tho other.  Ernest Eradsh:iw closed tho doer a id  came back to tho table. Ho cracked a  walnut, and on opening it threw it into  tho lire.  "Bad?" said Mr. Garraway. He wr,s  starting a cigar and he had refilled hia  glass. Ho was perfectly at home with  the Bradshaws.  "Yes," said youns Mr. Eradshaw  violently. "Of courso it's bad. "Worst  of it is that you neyer know until you  try."  Mr. Garraway owed his success as p  solicitor mainly to knowing exactly  when not to do tho wrong tiling. Young  Eradsh.w lighted a cigar and after a  few puffs let it go out. Then he stood  up with his back to tho fire���it was his  fire���and looked at Garraway.  "I want to ask you something, Garraway.    Do you ever havo people coming  to you to draw up deeds of separation?"  "Oh, yes; pretty often."  "Well,   would  you  mind   being  of  somo tiso to me���aud to Ellen?"  "Why, certainly. I'vo known j'ou  both���Mrs. Bradshaw especially���for a  long timo. But you two don't want to  be separated? Why, man alive, yo\i  haven't been married a year!"  "Garraway, look hero. Wo have had  n row, a disputo, or whatever you like  to call it."  " What I should call it," said Garra  way, rising aud speaking with somo as-  cerbit}-, "would be a littlo disagreement  between two excellent young pcopln wh.  ought to know better. "  ��� . "l^overtheless, my dear Garraway"���  the young husband's lips quivered���  "nevertheless wo have agreed to par*.''  Ou tho piano in tho drawing room up  stairs a few chords were struck and  the clear voico of Mrs. Bradshaw rang  out. Garraway, getting on in the thirties, and sober man of law, found tho  hand that held his cigar shaking for v  moment.  "You see," said Bradshaw;"perfectly jolly over it."  Thero was a sudden stop and a crash  on tho piano, as though tho player could  keep it tip no longer.  "Look hero, Bradshaw"���Mr. Garraway passed his hand carefully over his  smooth, sparohair���"look here. Call at  my place at 11 tomorrow morning, and  1'lFdo what is wanted."  "Thank you, Garraway."  "Shall wo go up stairs? I must ar-.  range with hor."  The demure, preciso little clock on  the mantelpieco in Mr. Garraway's  chambers struck 11 o'clock. A small  boy entered with a card.  "Thank yon, Judd. Show tho lady  in, Mr. Gibson."  Mr. Gibson withdraw his work to the  outer office, stopping usido at tho door  to permit a slim, girlish figuro to enter.  "How do you do, Mr. Garraway? I'm  not lato, ami? I did not know tho place,  and I had a littlo difficulty. I presume  you nro awaro of tlio naturo of my errand?" said tho visitor,  "Wo often havo littlo difficulties in  the law, Mrs. Bradshaw. If everything  worked smoothly, wo would starve. I  had uo chance of speaking to you last  night," said Mr. Garraway, "oxcopting  to ask you to call, but I had a brief  conversation with Bradshaw, and ho  assurod mo that you hud quito uiudo up  your mind about tho matter."  "Ho is, .in  this particular  instance,  quito right."   Sho put hor lips together  uud looked as doterniinod as sho could.  "And so I um to draw up tho deed of  Boparation?"  "It you please."  "It'H rathor rough on mo," wont on  Mr. Garraway, with an effort nt humor.

"There is only tho question, of a  housekeeper. Somebody must be there  to look alter the servants."  "It   is thero I think I can bo of some  assistance   to  Ernest."   Mr. Garraway  spoko  with  genial  assurance.    "It  so  happens that a client of mine is looking  for precisely a situation of this kind."  "How extremely fortunate!"  "She is a good manager, _ho's a widow, and sho has had chargo of  a house  similar to yours."  _ "Thut'.s'capital.  As I say, I shouldn't  liko   tho  houso to go to rack and ruin.

Tho lady is not old."  "Oh!    She is not young, I suppose?"  "Well,   as  a  matter  of  fact, she ia  rather  young.    By the bye, I  ought to  have her portrait here somewhere. "  It had cost Mr. Garraway a shilling,  this cabinet portrait, in a shop in tho  Strand that morning. The shopman  couldn't tell him who it was, didn't  know her from Adam, he said, but she  was an exceedingly pretty girl in demure black, and the wily-Mr. Garraway  was coutont.  "Surely, surely, Mr. Garraway,"  gasped young Mrs. Bradshaw as sha  gazed at the portrait, "this is not the  kind of person for a housekeeper."  "Oh, yes," said Mr. Garraway airily.  "She'll do all right. Bradshaw would  like her very much, I'm sure, after sho  had been in tho house a week or two.  I'm told she is a capital manager."  Tho bunch of scented narcissus at the  lady's bodice was bobbing up and down  as she continued to look at the photograph.  '' You sea, the great thing is to get  some ono who would make poor Bradshaw comfortable and not compel him  to bo always at t*:o clubs."  Sho put tho photograph down on the  tablo.  "This lady," said young Mrs. Bradshaw definitely, "shall nover como into  my house."  "No," agreed Mr. Garraway sweetly.  "Of course it would be in Ernest's  houso. I am sure that on my recom-  auondation"������  "Do you mean to say, Mr. Garraway,  that yon would recommend a person  .-'-v> this for such a position?" Mrs.  Bradshaw had risen from her ohair and  spoko iudigjjjyitly.  "Now,-Mi j. Bradshaw, pardon me.  3 Sta't r-llowyou to speak ill of a client  ca' mine. I havo every reason to believo  ti2��t she is a well brod young lady and  comos from ono of tho best families. I  havo no doubt in my own mind that she  will mako my friend Bradshaw, whom  I look upon as ono of tho best fellows in  the world, very comfortable indeed."

Miss Mathes is always a welcome visitor  to Nelson, and this time as usual  she has a good supporting company  with her.     Nearly all the plays given  this week  are  new, so far as Nelson  audiences are concerned.   Perhaps the  best of the new pieces is "A Fatal Er-  productiou   in   which   Miss  Mathes   shows   to   great   advantage.  "Nell  Gwynne," on Tuesday evening  attracted a large audience, as in fact has  every  piece given.     Iu  the company  ibis time tbereare many faces familiar  to  Nelson theatre-goers, such as Mr.  Marsh, Air. Roberts and Miss Emma  Mathes.     They each received a hearty  welcome on their reappearance.    To-  nigbt will conclude the week's engagement, when "As in a Looking-Glass,"  a play in which Mrs. Langtry scored a  great "success, will be given in Nelson  for the first time. In the Clara Mathes  company   this time there are many  specialties given, all of a most acceptable character.     It may be some time  before this company comes here again  aud they should be given a good house  on their farewell appearance to-night.  Opticians  Baker   Street, Nelson  CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM.  The Economist acknowledges with  thanks a copy of "Martin's  Mining  Cases," * work compiled by Hon. Archer Martin, Justice of the Supreme  Court.     This work has been favorably  received     by    the    legal   profession,  eoiitaiiitng as it does decisions of all  the important mining cases which have  come before the British Columbia courts  Not only   will  the woak be valuable  ,1'rorn this point of view, but it will possess additional value from the fact that  it contains, as the learned himself puts  it, "a limited number of the earlier and  most important laws, so that a true  understanding of the origin and foundation of our present system may be had,  and, M-tond, all the statutes from and  including   the   Consolidated  Mineral  Act of 18S4.    This will cover the title,  so far as can be ascertained, to every  mineral claim in British Columbia."  The work is one that the mine owner,  the mine  manager and publishers of  papers in mining districts can read with  pr .ri t, and should be on the shelves of  every  library in the province.

" To adopt the principles of government  ownership of railways in so far as the circumstances of the province will admit, and the  adoption of the principle that no bonus should  be granted to any railway company which  does uot givo the government of the province control of rates, over lines bonused, together with the option of purcnase.
