Edmonton had"- to remain a\vay to  the north, unknown and almost unheard of, the 'headquarters of tlie north  country trapper. Her ambition to be  on a railway was kindled by the building of the Calgary and Edmonton  Railway, bjl it was rudely discouraged,  for the steel never came. Edmonton  refused to draw on her little tieasury  to bridge the'Saskatchewan to admit  the roud, and it stopped on the south  side of the. river, and built the town of  Strathcona.  That wav a bitter disappointment  and much to Edmonton's mortification, her name does not appear on a  railway ticket in Canada. , Hut wait  three or four months. Tlie Canadian  Northern Railway will carry Edmonton! aus cast to "the old folks-' for  Christmas. Edmonton has no love  for the C. P. R. The merchants have  to order their summer goods the preceding autumn and have to pay more,  for freij.lit rates than for'Ihe goods.  Sometimes the consignment never arrives, and the claims agent complacently tiles tlieir claims, tliey say, and  that is the end of it. In-1890 Frank  Oliver was sent to parliament tosu-tlter  a few wads of his burning language, in  the hope that redress could be got, bill  Frank was so breezy and so independent that his complaints were not  heeded nor his suggestions considered.  The Klondike rush in 1897 brought  Edmonton to the fore. Misinformed  Englishmen by the hundred flocked  there and spent thousands for outfits  tp travel to theYukin  by the over  land  route.   The north country trails  are marked to-day with  their bleach-'  I ing bones and justing tools in  their  Mtting kit bags.  William Mackenzie and Daniel  Mann not long after saw the youthful town at the head of the fruitful  Saskatchewan valley, and concluded  that there would be the terminus of  their railway���at least for a few years.  Their executive agent,.Hugh Sutherland, saw how this could be the inland  collecting pluce for traffic for his cherished Hudson Bay route and Edmonton's future was assured. Wheh the  acorn of Sutherland's mind beconies  the oak in reality Edmonton will be as  .near Liverpool as Port Arthur. It is  4,228 mile;* from Winnipeg to Liverpool via Montreal, and 3,626 miles via  Hudson Ray.  ���a One "day last Autumn Charles M.  Hays and his retinue arrived in Edmonton in their private car and secured a tract of laud in the heart ofthe  town 'for.the'divisional headquarters for  the new transcontinental railway.  There shops and offices are to be built  and there the trains of the Grand  Trunk Pacific will "take fresh engines,  fresh Sva ter a nil mor. ic. before t hey  start, north for Dunvegan, the Rockies  and Port Simpson or Laurierville���in  1910 or 1911.     ' .-'"  "Alberta is now to be a province., A  'Liberal Government is in the saddle.  Frank Oliver is now a straight Grit  and is the Honourable the Minister of  the Interior. His home towii is to be  the capital; Edmonton citizens are  grateful to hiuitfor the Federal money  that is being spent there in public  biildings. Fears that he will be defeated while a candidate for Parliamentary" honors need not be entertained for a few years 16 come.  Edmonton with her 10,000 inhabitants (Including Strathcona), with her  avenues of homes rather than streets  of warehouses, and'oallihg herself the  Albertan capital, considers herself the  superiorjof the commercial Icattle city  of Calgary. Tha Ottawa of the north  points out that the C. P. R. has found  an easier road through the mountains  t'lau by way of Calgary. In the near  future the prophecy is that all the  t-trough traffic from the east to the  west and from the west to the east will  bj diverted south at Dunmore through  the Crow's Nest and the Boundary  country to Vancouver.  This; does, not disturb Calgary's  _sereiii_.tyA.ta com-  THINGS TALKED OF IN NELSON DURING  THE WEEK,  Undoubtedly the Fair committee  acted wisely in selecting Mrs. Jennie  Harris to take charge of the baby show.  Mrs. Harris is working night and day  to make tbis feature a success, which.  It will be iu the natural course of  event.). This much is admitted, but  there-will be some who will not endorse Mrs. Harris iu writing to President Roosevetyitor :i contribution to the  baby show, that is in the way ofa substantial prize. President Roosevelt is  highly esteemed in British Columbia,  as he is iu his own country, and justly  so, but that is no reason why he  should be asked to. contribute to a  baby show in a cou htry hi which he  can have nothing more than a friendly  iuterest. If he is anxious to promote  and encourage the struggling infantile  industry, it is quite possible he can  find an. opportunity of. doing so in his  own country. A few prospective  voters more or less in British Columbia  will have little bearing on the growth  and population of the "United States,  and this apparent attempt to hold-up  the ruler of a hitherto friendly, nation  is altogether oilt'of place. It may not  lead to "grave international complications," as the Tribune would.express  it, but it will give the presideutrU very  poor opinion of the ability Of British  Columbians to finance a baby show  without asking for outside assistance.  If Mrs. Harris had called upon Premier  Laurier or Hon. R. L. Borden to subscribe to tills well-deserving benefit for  the babies,* no doubt either would have  been only too pleased to cut a slice out  of .their recently.increased salaries to  help out the Nelson baby^how..  the memories of those who have  watched him jumping from.the lire  wagon while the horses were running  at full speed. As time rolls on, it may  be that there will be many other drivers in the Nelson lire department, but  the assertion is made without fear of  successful contridiction, that none.of  them will ever duplicate O'Connor's  flying leap. Well did he win the following tribute from George Meikle,  the Fernie poet:   ," o.  Oh, say, did yon see Jnt-k O'Connor,".'  His friends all thought him a goner;  D'dn't all others feel cheap ". ������'::..'      .

During the time of the Fair the local  militia company intends to hold a military shoot, and invitations have been  sent to all .the. rifle associations und  military units iu the Interior of the  Province to send representatives. This  event will take place during the three  dnys of the Fair and it Is confidently  expected that thhre will be a large attendance of all those throughout the  Interior who are interested in this most  exciting sport. .The prize: list is a  generous one, and there are are provisions in it for the youthful shots as well  as for those with more experience. It  is hoped that arrangements may be  perfected for organizing uu Interior  Rifle Association, which will includeall  the r.tle associations and military corps  throughout the Interior, so that these  meetings may be held annually.  The popular Canadian star. Mr.  Harold Nelson, whose appearance here  i�� always welcomed by a crowded  house, will be men here this season in  uu elaborate production of Prince Otto,  a dramatization of Robert Louis Stevenson's famous novel. Prince Otto is  a romantic drama dealing with the  ruler of a German principality during  the.: times of a serious rebellion. It  ullows of bright comedy situations, of  pretty love scenes, and of the strongest  of dramatic climaxes. Mr. Nelson will have in the title role a  part admirably suited to him, and  should add another to his long list of  successful chaructei delineations. . He  will have the support of a most excellent company, headed by the handsome and talented favorite, Mr. Clifford Lane Bruce. Prince Otto will be  seen here during the Fair w*ek.  The departure of J. T. O'Connor,  Mayor Houston's driver, for Spokane,  will cause sincere sorrow in Nelson.  To Mr. O'Connor, this country is indebted for having Introduced several  novel features in the way of training  horses for tire duty. To such a state of  perfection had he trained his horses  that he could turn their heads in the  direction of the lire, and they raced to  tho desired destination of their own  free will and accord. Mr. O'Connor's  tiquestrian exhibitions will live long in " tions  to   the   contrary.

Itis not likely Gill  was a thief by nature. The passion for  gambling simply dwarfed his moral  sense,:and; when.'he lost he had to  make good, even If a-trusted employer  was to be the victim. 'At first no  doubt he played with his own money,  but as the passion developed and' his  losses absorbed his. own salary, he  turned to the money^of others. He intended to pay it back some day, but  Hades is-paved with good intentions.  There are many youhg men in Nelson  who are travelling over the same road  that led Gill to destruction. Tbeir  losses are more than their salaries will  stand, and it is only a matter of time  until the tumbling passion will obtain  complete mastery over their sense of  moral obligation.; Then they will take  their employers' money, or pass forged  or worthless: cheques, as has already  been done, and their finish1 is in aiglit.  sej arated, but Taylor was persistent.  and it appears as if he may yet win  out. ; His sweetheart has gone to New  York City, ahd, it is said, has promised  to marry him if he can get a divorce,  whieh he .ays he will.

Dr. White on the Catholic  View of Relics.  Poor old Joe Worsop was drowned in  Vancouver harbor a week or so ago,  and the accident was duly chronicled  in the Vancouver papers at the time.  Last evening the Nelson 'Tribune had  a ^'dispatch" from Vancouver from  which it would appear that the Terminal City papers announced the  drowning accident a week or so too  soon.- Next week the Tribune will be  receiving specials from Jerusalem announcing the death of Judas Iscariot.  As a "grape vini'. specialist the Tribune leads them all.  - The moneyed citizen. :of Netson are  busily engaged resisting the plausible  entreaties of Fred Starkey for subscriptions for the Fair. Those who know  Mr. Starkey best, fully realize that this  resistance will be easily overcome. In  fact he has so far succeeded in his- efforts that he is now in a position to  announce that the funds required to  successfully^nance the Fair are forthcoming. ; Secretary Annable is tole  congratulated on having secured the  services ofsuch an enthusiastic worker  as Mr. Starkey to assist him.  Th,e change id the tone of the United  States papers in recent years was perhaps never Wetter;illustrated than'in  the Collins ease; A few years ago,  w henever a man was arrested on a  charge the United States papers at once  setup a howl that the accused was innocent; nowadays they have gone to  the other extreme andVhen a charge is  brought against a man, lie is forthwith  proclaimed guilty and he is hounded to  death. Collins, now awaiting extradition at Victoria, is being roasted to a  turn by the San Framisco press, and  Chief Justice Hunter is also receiving  some attention from the same source.  ;Tbe Victoria Times thus strikes back :  "If the San Francisco papers have  any weight with the United States  govern mer.t we may .expect to see the  Chicago, the Marblehead and the Paul  Jones back here from Port Angeles  with a demand for the head of Chief  Justice Hunter. According to those  modest exponents of public virtve the  Chief Justice has done violence to all  the laws that ever were by permiting  one officer of the Supreme Court instead of another to have custody of a  person whose extradition is demanded.  We / respectfully submit, to the San  Francisco papers that it is none of their  business in what custody such a person is kept, so long as he is in custody.  Victoria has turned out many cap  able actors and theatrical managers.  The list is a long one and includes  many who have won fame on the stage.  The latest addition to the number is  Miss Ethel Green, who left Victoria  last January under engagement with  the "Chinese Honeymoon" company,  and who scored so successfully throughout the east as Mi-Mi in that Opera.  She has been re-engaged by the ;Shu-.  bert people to take a part iu their new  opera "Elysia," in which Do Wolf  Hopper will appear as the star. The  new play opened in New York September 4th. Miss Gicen has also been  given an understudy in   one  of the  leading parts of the same opera.   ��__  Fernie has had its regular weekly  Hie, the loss this time amounting to  $100,(i00.

Scarcely a year ago Herbert Taylor,  the celebrated baritone, sang at several  concerts in Nelson. ..He had a splendid voice and was well received by the  music-lovers of this city.

It will contain many novelties, and for years to come its wonders  will be celebrated in song and story.  The Vancouver authorities had a peculiar case last week. A Chinaman  was charged with supplying liquor to  Indians and sentenced to three months  in jail. According to the Vancouver  Province he proved a veritable "white  elephant" on the hands of the police,  as he was unuble to work ; in fact, he  has beeu a sort ol nuisance around the  jail. The police magistrate when appealed to could ofler no relief. It  would be a bail precedent to renilta  sentence, and he threw the responsibility upon the Police Commissioners.  It was a sort of post-mortem the hoard  held Wednesday afternoon in examining the ieeble Celestial. Aid Bethune  and Commissioner Malcolm agreed  that Sing should be given his liberty  whether it tore a gaping hole in the  British Constitution or not. So old  man Sing tottered down to Chinatown  in charge of an officer.  A poem, by the editor of the Tribune, on the wonders of "The Stope,"  is now in course of preparation, and  will appear as a dispatch to that paper  within a week or so.  Mr. Justice Morrison is spending the  remaining part of his vacation at  Pincher Creek.  The care taken to insure the proper  identification of the remains of Paul  Jones led the Rev. Dr. WilHam J.  White, pastor of tbe Church of jthe  Visitation, in Brooklyn, to speak the  other day on the attitude of the Roman Catholic Church toward relics.  Alter discussing the means of proving  the authenticity of relics, he went on  to say:  "The question of the authenticity of  relics has always been open to wide  discussion. In 1215 tbe Fourth La-  teran Council forbade relics to be sold  or to be exposed outside their cases or  shrines and prohibited the publio veneration of new relics till their authenticity had been approved by the Pope.  "The Council of Trent renewed these  prohibitions and further required  Bishops to decide on the authenticity  of new relics after careful consultation  with theologians or the Bishops of  their respective provinces. In 18Slthe  Cardinal Vicar of Rome warned Bishops against spurious relics.  "The custom of honoring the remains of martyrs is very ancient. In  It?? the bones of St. Ignatins of Anti-  ocli were gathered iu a linen cloth 'as  a precious treasure.' WhenPolycarp's  body was burned, in 167, the Christians  exhumed the bones they could find 'as  more precious thun costly stones uud  more valuable than gold.'  "In the fifth, sixth and seventh centuries thc tombs of the martyrs in the  Catacombs outside Rome became places  of pilgrimage and were enlarged into  chapels whose walls are still covered  with pious invocations of the visitors.  "About this time a movement to  bring the remains of the martyrs from  the Catacombs into the city began,  caused by the desire of the Popes to  protect the subterranean cemeteries  from desecration at the hands of barbarian invaders, and also because they  wished to consecrate new churches  thut were then being built. fu the  Church of St. Prussede alone 2,300  bodies were interred.  "So keen was tbe search for relics  aud bodies of saints that abuses began  to creep in at the beginning of the  eighth" cen turyT T he~sa I e ~d f fell ciT became common, but was condemned by  the Popes. The Deacon Duesdona,  who had charge of the the Cemetery  of Sts. Peter and Marcellinus, seems to  have been the chief offender. He sold  bodies from this cemetery beyond the  Alps, In what is now southern Germany.  "The many paintings in Europe of  the Saviour and the Virgin Mary supposed to be painted by St. Luke or by  the ungels are of Byzantine ori^iti ;  they weie brought from the East during the iconoclastic heresies. The  Holy Face which is preserved in St.  Peter's and exposed for veneration on  Holy Thursday of each year belouRs to  this class.  "The Crusaders brought many relics  from Palestine and Constantinople, the  authenticity of some of which is doubtful.  "The annals of the Venetian republic frequently make mention of saints'  bodies brought from the East by  traders.. The remains of St. Mark the  Evangelist, found their way to Venice  in this" vi ay. Thev were taken in 829  by Venetian luuiohants from a church  in Alexandria, Egypt, which the  Arabs were about to destroy. St.  Theodore, the early patron saint of  Venice, was deposed and the place of  honor given to the evangelist whose  name, effigy and winged lion occur  everywhere in that city.  "The city of Benevento was besieged  during the middle ages because it  would not give up the body of St. Bar-  sisi was buried without witnesses to  prevent his body from being stolen hy  neighboring towns. It wus not found  until 1818, 000 years after his death.'  "There are two classes or grades of  of relics in the Churcb. The first Is  the body of the saint, then come the  garments, vestments and' worldly belongings.  "The greatest and most aathentto '  relic In  the Church is the true cross,  tbe   largest portion of which is preserved in   tbe   Church of the Holy,  Cross at Rome.     Each Bishop has a  portion of the true cross In his pectoral  cross.    So scarce has this relic become -  that Leo XIII., in a letter to the Bishops of the Church, asked them to will  their pectoral crosses to their successors. '  " Each student who bas made his  final studies in Rome is.entitled tasix  different relics upon his leavjug-jbere'.  They are obtained from the Lipsano-  teca, a chapel where many relics from '  the Catacombs are preserved. These  relics are generally of the second classv  " The spirit that has prompted the "'  American Government to send a warship   3,000  miles   to   bring   back   to ���  American soil the remains of a man .  who   fought  her   battles   when    she  needed fighters is tbe same spirit that  prompts the Catholic Church to veur  erate the relics of martyrs and saints.  They are her heroes.  " Doubt may be cast on the authenticity of some of the relics, as it is still  opeu to question whether we really *  have interred the remains of John  Paul Jones at Annapolis, but Catholics do not pray to a bit of bone or tuft  of hair; they venerate and pray to the  saint to whom it is supposed to belong,  just as the patriotic American- who  makes a pilgrimage to Aunapolfs lion-"'  ors the brave American captain, whether his bones are interred there or  still He undisturbedJn the Protestant  cemetery in Paris."  There are in the United States and  Canada five bodies of saints ofthe first  cIuhs.   The remains of St. Peregrtnus  are   in  St. Anselm's Church In  Tbe '  Bronx.   St. Vincent de Paul's Church.  in Detroit has  the remains of one of  the 2,300 martyrs from the Church  of  St. Prussede in Rome. St Alphonsus's.  Church in Windsor, Ont.,  has the"re-  mains of another one of the martyrs,  and_St._Louis'8 Church-in-BufTalo has-^  two more relics.  The relics of St. Anne are scattered  all over the world, but possibly the  largest portions outside of Europe are  at the Church of St. Jean Baptiste  in New York and the Chapel of St.  Anne de Beaupre, Canada.  Tne Sons of Fngland bave taken the--  initiative in the matter of celebrnting-  the centenary or Nelson's death, October 21. No doubt all patriotic citizens  will heartily co-operative iu the festivities.  The Eagles will give a dnnce iu Fraternity Hall on the evening of Sept. 21  Both floors have been secured, aud two  orchestras    will    supply   the    music  throughout the evening.  A lady without arms, who ean doall  ���ort.M of fancy work with her feet, will  be one of the attractions at the Nelson  Fair.

It has been suggested tliat the  temporary editor of the Tribune  should take control of that paper in  tbe interests of the stockholders. It  does not concern anyone where the  suggestion originated, but the pub  lie will be interested in learning  Ihntthe venerable William Fernie  has not yet signified his intention  of backing tbe enterprise with his  capital.  The complaint of the Daily News  hat the Conservatives have inaugurated the spoils system in tlie distribution of offices within the gift  ���.of the Local Government will nol  be taken seriously. The News can  scarcely point to an instance where  the Laurier Government appointed  a Conservative to any oflice, no  matter how unimportant lhat office  might be.

Please state how it became Kussiaiiiterritory." " -&  Tbe Japanese from time immemorial bad exercised some control  over the southern part of Sakhalin,  the Russian-* having begun permanent settlements in the north no  earlier than 1S57. After much  friction and long diplomatic exchanges, Japan assigned its claim  to southern ^Sakhalin in consideration of the cession by Russia of the  islands of the Kurties, which it had  occupied. Sakhalin is a misnomer,  for the proper name of the island is  Karalutp or Karaftu. The island  is 670 miles long, and the breadth  varies from 20 to 150- miles. The  aboriginal population, largely Ainu,  is 6,150; the Russian population  is 29.C04, acco ding to the most recent census, of which only 2,838  were free  settlers,   the bulk of the  population being convicts and exiles and ticket of leave men. The  convict establishment was represented in last year's budget by an  item ol   nearly   17,000,000 roubles.

Costigan had enjoyed the confidence  of his party during all the years of  his political life, but when disaster  came he jumped oyer to the Liberals. The St. John. N, B.. Sun  thus refers to Mr. Costigan's desertion :  -The count'y knows from Mr.  Costigan himself why he broke from  his party. He has explained in Parliament that the break occurred six  months before the defeat and resignation of the Tupper government.  The matter remaining to be explained is why after breaking with  the party Mr, Costigan" continued  to appear as 'One .of its leaders,  holding office in the Conservative  Government, and contesting his  county as a supporter and a colleague of the Conservative premier.

D., Sept. 3.���"The folks that don't  believe the world is gettin" bjstter ought to drop in on  little old Deadwood one o' these days," said Peter  English, old time gambler and faro dealer, as he  came out of a ticket broker's oflice, where he had  been to price transportation ior Denver. "For the  first time since I've been in the Hills the proprietors  of the luck mills have been scurrying around trying  _to_find.-.the_k.eys_to_th.eir_-_fr��^  all right, and I guess we'll have to move on."  This summarizes the situation iii Deadwood to-day  so far as it relates to gambling. For twenty-seven  years open gambling has been the. rule in this city.  Six big and four little joints have been wide open,  each class catering to a certain element of the population.  Deadwood was one of the first gold camps of the  Hills, after the excitement of 1876 and 1877 got un-'  der :way. Life was held very cheaply then, and  stable government was a long time coming. Now.a  committee of citizens and the State's Attorney have j  come to the conclusion that open gambling is a bad  thing for business as well as morals, and they have  bolted the lid down. They notified the gamblers  ttjat their limit had expired, and they were told to  shut up and move on. It was a big surprise all  arotiud. ���/ <b  Parker, the State's Attorney, is an old Westerner.  He came here in the staging days, and was one of  the lawyers who defended the, freighters in the days  of the bull whackers' strike in the early 8o's. He  has lived here for twenty-five years.  " I closed up the joints," he says, ''not because of  any wave of public sentiment, or because, they were,  getting too much of the wealth. I simply came to  the conclusion that the town has passed the raining  stage, and it was time to move up into the decent  city class."  '  Gambling has been a publL* institution for so long  that the order to close up came as a distinct shock.  More than o thousand dollars a month revenue was  received by tbe city for the joint licenses, and the  sum paid a considerable portion of tbe tax budget.  Seventy-eight professional gamblers, not to mention  porters and waiters, were employed iu the places, and  the most of them have moved to Denver, where the  lid is tijted a little. ' ������'  Deadwood is a city of about 5,000 people.    It is lo-  caled just where a. narrow gorge in  the hill widens a  little and its houses mostly cling to the sides of steep  hills.    Down  its ceutre  runs  a brawling mountain  stream.    Out ofthe hills all  about gold is still being  A 1 ' ���'.'-' \  dug. More than half of the men in town work in  the mines and in the cyanide mills and chlorination  works.    The rest live on the workers.  The open arms policy towards gambling resulted iu  some/curious._!M���.x,_ipsV__Tjje_g^Ming/den and the  dry goods store, the grocery and the faro layout were  to be found next do_r ' to one another on the main  street. One was regarded as much of a legitimate  institution as the other. The only difference was  that the dry goods store and the grocery closed on  Sundays. There was no attempt to conceal the character of the business going on. The window blinds  were up and the doors open and he who passed  might know.  One man in every tewnty.-, in the town is a Chinaman. Some of them work in the mines, a few run  laundries and others officiate as cooks. They were  all inveterate gamblers, and they are now the most  disconsolate fellows in town. Fan tan was open to  them, but they generally passed it up for poker or faro.  It has long beeu a story here that tbe Chinks were  nearly all employed by a company that financed them  in gambling operations and gave them a salary and a  share when they won, which they did more often  than they lost. To get paid for playing poker was a  thing that made them the envy of not a few white  men. ,  Deadwood has been the scene of many a big game.  It is just on the edge of the Hills, and cattlemen  from the country to the north���men who have money  enough to buy up a town or two and still have a capital left to start a bank���often dropped in, and they  boosted things to the Hunt. Sometimes they broke  the bank : oftener. they went broke themselves. Only  one rule was laid down for the gamblers in recent  years. That was tliat all games must be ru.j on the  'square. The dealer was entitled to his percentage,  but no more. If he tried to run brace or deal crooked  the place was elosed aud stayed closed.  Almost the toughest thing in the "whole of creation is a "pinto" Broncho when he is in  -flghti-ng-humor-f-^^   Now his hide is just as tought as he is, and that part above, his hips and back is the very  toughest and most pliable���it is the "Shell."
