MiteiR��?li  X ales of the   X own  One of tlie most conspicuous cases of  a honesty tbat has ever come under the  observation of The Economist in  years occurred in Nelson tliis week.  Ifc givps this paper particular pleasure  to refer to it, inasmuch as tlie hero belongs to a profession in which honesty  is not regarded as oue ofthe shining vir-.  - tues���'the newspaper business.* A few  days.ago Joseph Ryan visited, ^he  Ledge oflice, and.witli a trust that is  really sublime laid down on the floor a  valise containing- machinists' tools.  When leaving he forgot to take the  tools with him, and indeed could not  tell where he left them. - He advertised his loss in the Daily News and  Mr. Lowery, of the Ledge, promptly  returned tbe valise,.with all the tools  iu it, to its rightful owner. It. may bo  argued that the tools were of no use to  Mr. Lowery aiid an attempt made in  this way to-detract from tbe disinterested honesty of the editor ; or again,  ���** t  it may be eon tended tbat Mr. Lowery in  ��� waiting till the advertisement appeared  in tlie News showed that he had hesitated before restoring them to their  rightful owner'; but in eitherargument  the writer can see nothing that hi-any  - way weakens the contention tbat tbe  restoration ofthe valise containing the  tools to their rightful owner was the  act of au honest man, and one wor'hy  of praise and emulation. If Mr. Ryan  had been so unfortunate as to have left  his valise aud toolsin any other newspaper office in Nelson, especially it the  tools were a kind that could btsused in  burglary, it is doubtful if his advertisement would have brought abou t the desired   result".     Therefore,   this   paper  once more suggests  tbat   while   Mr.  ���   i .f  Lowery in  giving rip tbe valise and  tools has not preserved the most manifest and prize.1 traditions of.tiie newspaper profession, be has opened a new  line of thought for scientists who have  hitherto regarded the practice of honesty as being incompatible with  success in tbe conduct of a great  newspaper.  of the larger Canadian cities and investigate the police methods prevailing in  those places, and will likely spend a  few days in Winnipeg.

Mrs.  McCulloch bas been absent about three  months, all of which time was devoted  to visiting relatives and  friends in the  east.  9  The Jessie Shirley company will begin a week's engagement at the Nelson  Opera House -next Monday evening,'  opening in "The Princess of Patches/'  Tbe company* comes well recommended from Spokane, where it con-  eluded a 17 weeks' engagement last  Thursday evening.  A. H. McNeill, K. C. of Rossland  spent Thursday night in Nelson on his  return from a four-days' outing at  Procter. He had much to say in favor  of-JProcter as a tourist resort���lie laughs  at the suggestion that the Mackintosh  campaign managers Ijave purchased  the Rossland World.      ���    ���        -  The Black Watch band is now on a  tour of the United States and Canada.  This organization ^-vyill.^ reach"* British  Columbia shortly, and the citizens of  Nelson may having*aiv opportunity of  hearing one ,of the best bands  ot" : the Old ' Country. The details of the tour aie not yet complete, but it is expected that altogether  about 0,000 miles will he-covered. . In  the smaller cities where a halt will be  made a single performance will have  to suffice, butin the large,cities, such  as Montreal and Ottawa,'the inhabitants will perhaps bo afforded other  opportunities of hearing the splendid  band.  Interviewed by the -Toronto* Telegram last Saturday, W. A. Galliher  Baid : " No, the Dominion elections  "have not been fixed, but they're as  sore as if they had. They'll take place  this fall without fail."  ** Any changes likely to bo in the  Cabinet?" '  '"None that I know of."___  "You noticed the report about Mr.  Aylesworth?"  "Yes, but I'd place no credence in  that."  "What about G. P. Graham, of  Brockville?"  "What place is there for him in the  Cabinet? If any new blood is to be  introduced into the Cabinet. British  Columbia must gel the fifst chance.  Just now it has only a Minister without portfolio." ���.���"..'  Chief of Police Jarvis has be'en  granted one mouth's leave of .-absence,  andAyill leave for Toronto on the.first  of September to revisit the scenes of  his boyhood days. Chief Jarvis first  left Toronto in 1876""and_jspeiit-'two  years in Edmonton, which was at that  time Qiily a small post. He returned  to Toronto iu.1878, and two years later  v  took up his residence in Edmonton.  Since that time* he has been in the  west.    While east he will visit several  ���Among the attractions- already- se--  curcd for lhe Nelson Fair.are the following : Trof.

The  Moukawire has also been engaged. His  comic |)erfoi-mance on the slack wire is  very clever. This is only "a few of the  specialties which will* be seen at the  Fair. ���Secretary Annable is closing engagements with several other attractions, so that visitors can depend upon  witnessing one of the most enjoyable  peiformaneesever seen in the Kootenays. The exhibits will far;outnumber what was expected. ��� '  - Mrs. Thurman, mother of W. A."  and .George Thurman, will leave for  her home in Winnipeg next Thursday.  She will be accompanied by her 'grandson, Charlie Jameison, who has been  on a visit with his.uncles .during the  school bplidays. Mrs. Thurman has  been in Nelson nearly two yeaw and  will carry back to Winnipeg a favor-  ab!e>report ofthe health-giving properties of the Nelson climates  The" residents of-Fairview will petition the Government to nave the Hume  school moved from its present position  in the clouds to a place where it will  be more accessible to the pupils. The  c *st of moving would not be very much,  and the 'convenience to the pupils  would be very great.  GusTbomas, of the Lakeview Hotel,  left last Wednesday morning for Portland en route to the St. Louis Fair. Mr.  Thomas will meet his wife at Portland,  aud if she has .sufficiently recovered  from her recent illness, she will proceed with him to St. Louis, aud thence  to Michigan. They will return to Nelson in time for the*exhibition.  Mr. aud Mrs. J. A. Kelley, and their  sop Harry, Fairview, have returned  from a pleasant outing at Roseberry;  Mr. Kelly says he never caught so many  lish during' his whole life as he did  last-week. -    There is considerable speculation at  Victoria as to who will succeed Mr.  Justi ce Drake on the Bench. There  are many aspirants for the position, the  principal ones mentioned being Aulay  Morrison, M. P., for New Westminster,  and W. W. B. Mclnnes, M. P. P.  There are a number of up-country lawyers spoken of in the same connection,  among others being Will Clemens, of  Grand~Forks, and S. S. Taylor, K. C,  of Nelson. There is also much speculation with respect to the selection of a  successor to Sir Henri Gustave Joly de  Lothbiniere in the Lieutenant-Governorship. It is said that Senator Templeman can have the exalted office for  the asking, but does not'want it. Senator Bostock is also spoken of in this  connection.  , The Nelson laerosse'Uearn*will play  at N<-">v Westminster exhibition, having received an acceptance of its offer  Ibis morning. Tbey will b.egin practice afc once, and may play Cranbrook  during the Nelson Fair. ���".  A dramatic society lias been formed  in Nelson, and there is a prospect that  tlie Operatic Society will soon begin  the preparation of "The Pirates of  Penzance," or some other opera.  . Yen. Archdeacon Beer was in the  city this'week on matters dealing with  the Kootenay diocese.  | Western railway, chiefly on theSarnia  I branch. Returning to England, he  I was not long afterwards appointed  chief engineer to construct a short suburban railway ^from Cape Town to  Wynburg. Called again to Canada in  1S68, he was appointed on the staff'of  the chief engineer, Mr. (now Sir) Sand-  ford Fleming, on tbe construction of  the Intercolonial railway. In 1872 he  was despatched' to take, charge of the  C. P. R. surveys iu British Columbia,!  and afterwards took charge until completion ofthe division from Port Moody  to Emory's bar. Jn 1886 his connection  with the C. P. R. ceased, and fro'm that  time up to 1392 he was consulting engineer in the public service.  The Victoria Colonist regards ifc a  strange omission that none of the  Ottawa correspondents nor the Associated Press telegraphed the news to.  the coast of the death at Ottawa on August 14th of one of the foremost figures  in Canadian history���Marcus Smith,  C. E. Deceased wa3 a distinguished  civil engineer, and was more popularly  known as one of the chief actors in the  great plan of the construction of the  Canadian Pacific railway. Born in  Berwkk-on-Tweed, Enjr., July 16th.  1815, he spent the first j'ears'of his  business career in England and the  United States. Removing toCanadiv  in 18501, he was engaged oo the Great  Dion Boucicault and bis sister Miss  Nina Boucicault,-two of tbe best actors  on the London stage, inherit the talent  of their father, the late Dion Boucicault,  not only one^of the most famous actors  of the Victorian.era.but one of its most  famous dramatists. For who does not  recall " The Collen Bawn," and other  Irish plays, to say nothing of "London  Assurance," which has taken its place  among the stage classics of the language ?  It is reported that the Northern Pacific will shortly equip its main line  with what is known in the electrical  world as the telegraphone system, combining in its operation both the telegraph aud the telephone. In its operation the telegraph wires are used for  sending messages by both processes  simultaneously. -Thisis-accomplished  bythe use of difierent currents for each  system, so that neither interferes with  the other. It is possible for'traiu crejvs  to use tha telegraphone at any point  on a telegraph" line equipped with relays, and the device is said to be invaluable in case of accident,or wreck,  as the wires may be connected at any  point on the road and communication  established.  The Victoria Tourist Association has  received a telegram from President C.  M.Hays of the Grand Trund Pacific  Railway promising to meet a deputation of business naeu on his arrival  there. The deputation intends to urge  upon Mr. Hays the desirability of Victoria as the terir.inus for the' Grand  Trunk Pacific. Ifc will suggest tbat  the line should to go tbe Coast by Bute  Inlet thence across to Vancouver Island  and find its natural terminus in Victoria.  Chief Justice Hunter is holdirjg rourt  in Atlin. During his trip north His  Lordship was delayed at Skagway for  a couple of duys.aud with Mrs. Hunter  had some pleasant recreation in the  way of fishing. He landed several fine  trout, weighing five pounds each, but  Mrs. Hunter succeeded even better,  landing one fish scaling d] pounds.  Atlin, like Nelson, wants a resident  judge, the appointment being urged in  the presentment of tbe grand jury. It  was pointed out that a prisoner had  been lying in jaii for four and a half  months awaiting trial. The presentment also urged the apointment of a  stipendary magistrate and a judge of  the Small Debts court, as tlie additional  work placed on the shoulders of the  government agent interferes with his  duties as gold commissioner.  A press despatch gives the following  particulars.pf the funeral at Quebec  on Monday-of the late Lady Joly de  Lotbiniere: " The remains of the late  Lady Joly de Lotbiniere arrived here  yesterday afternoon at 3:45 o'clock, accompanied by Sir Henri Joly and his  son.    A large number of prominent  citizens were at" the station awaiting  the arrival of the funeral train, including several members of the family, "together with Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir A.  E. Taschereau, Sir A. P. Ptlletier, Sir  L. N. Casault, 'Major Sheppard representing Lieutenant-Governor Jette and  Hon. Charles'Fitzpatrick, The casket  containing the remains of the deceased  lady was placed on a hea*rse, as were a  wreath from Lord and Lady Minto, a  cross from the* Canadian' Foresters'  Association, and other floral offerings.  The^funeral cortege wended its' way to  Mount Herman Cemetery, and was  followed by many carriages. When  the cemetery was reached a service was  held in St. Michael's church.  - j'-    ���  It is encouraging to- note the progress being made in the ore shipments  from the Slocan division, tho weekly  output averaging up to the Sandou  camp. This'weekthree properties figure in the list, the Black Prince, Ottawa  and Enterprise, with a to'al of*S6 tons.  The Princ&made.its first shipment, of  22 tons, under the.iiew management,  to Nelson ; the' Ottawa senfc out its  weekly quota, 44 tons to the same  place; and the Enterprise 20 tons to  Trail. For the year the output is 1504  tons.  F. E. Simpson,"editor and proprietor  of the Cranbrook Herald, the best  weekly paper published in the Kootenays, has !usfc returned from a visit to  tbe St. Louis Fail* and the Winnipeg  exhibition. He is now entertaining  the citizens .of Cranbrook with a  breezy account .of his trip.  Dr. J. 0. Houston and wife, -of  Prince Edward Island, will arrive in  Nelson to-morrow night.   The doctor,  /        r '  who has been attending the Medical  Convention at Vancouver, was at college with Dr. Rose.  William Cranston, one of the lessees"  of the Opera House, is expected in Nelson* this evening. Thje new company  will-take over the house on the first of  the month, taking,the last three nights  of the Jessie Shirley engagement.  Many changes in the-way of-improve-  ments will be made in the house within  the" next few weeks with tbe objeet of  making it one of the most attractive  places of amusement in-the west.  The citizens of Nelson, while they  will gladly congratulate Mr. Bruce  Heathcate on his promotion to the  branch ofthe Canadian Bank of Commerce at San Francisco, will afc the  same time regret the departure of that  gentleman and his family from Nelson.  Mr. aud Mrs. Heathcdte are held in  high esteem in this city, and tbe best  wishes.for their future will accompany  them to their new home in San Fran.  Cisco. "���  T. G.

The result of this pro  ' vision-of theAct.'asitnowstar.ds/will   be  to cast  upon the vendor to the company in "all cases the payment of tbe said fees.and charges.      A much  fairer  provision would be to make the payment fall  upon  the party vendor or purchaser-who would lose upon  the appeal from the scaler to the supervisor.   yV a  appellant from the scaler to the supervisor is adjudged  to-be wrong in such appeal, by all means he should  ��� pay the charges and costs iucuned by such appeal;  but why should   he  be mnde   to   pay .hem il  he  should be adjudged right iti appealing.    This provis-  ���ion-should assuredly_bectangcd _aUhe_ first_ opportunity.     The costs should be made to follow tbe appeal in all cases.  Then there should be no lien upon the logs therefor.    They may not be the property of the party who  would be liable to pay them, if the Act were changed  as we are advocating.  ' - And we believe that there should be an appeal from  the supervisor to a board of arbitration.     A   large  lumber company would naturally have a considerable  influence in  a small  community  and a  supervisor  might well-be or conceivably be under the "mesmeric  influence" of such a company.   It would greatly tend  to keep him walking in the straight aud narrow path  of business rectitude if he  knew that there could be  an appeal from bis decision ;  and the knowledge th-.t  there could be such an appeal would tend to p event  the company attempting to influence the  supervisor.  Tbis appeal would in all likelihood not   often be resorted to; especially iu the case of the timber inspector  here, in  whom all have confidence ;  but that would  ���   not mean that such a provision  in the  Act would be  useless or unnecessary.     Far from it.     Its beit  results would be those which we have just indicated.  Amended thus the Act v-ould seem to.be an excellent  one-;'  The Tribune's terrible threats against civil servants  who take part in politics^! 11 terrorize no one, Mr.  Houston is no longer in a position to intimidate his  enemies, and his threats are only those of a weak old  man who forgets that he is shorn of all power. .No  one denies that civil servants should refrain from, active participation in politics, or prevented from furnishing the sinews of war to carry on a political campaign, but surely John Houston is the last man who  Should revile them for having done so.     ,  The favorite statesmen who will serve on'the Grand  Trunk Pacific railway commission are all "practical  men, or perhaps practical politicians would be a more  accurate term.

It is evident that  Lord  Dundonald   has plenty of  friends in Canada, and a   plebiscite of the Dominion  at the present time would probably show that, in spite  ofthe Domini6n Government, the  late commandant  has the support of the majority of the  people.     At  any rate he is to be  presented  with a national  testimonial, ancl popular committees are being formed all  oyer Canada.     The subsequent action of the Laurier  Government in ordering the destruction of all copies  of Lord Dundonald's infantry and cavalry text books  is incredibly petty, and suggests childish   petulance  rather than the behavior of responsible men and ministers.     The excuse made, that the books have been  condemned by officers of experience, is a palpable  sham.      How is it that the discovery of the unreliability of  the text books was synchronized with  the  dismissal of the commandant.     Lord Dundonald had  to go, not because l.e was iucompeteut, but because he  trod upon the political corns of one or two members  ofthe government.    It would be interesting to know  the names of the officers of experience who condeir.ned  the  text books of so distinguished a soldier  as Lord  Dundonald.     We suppose that they are some members of the local  militia, possibly the favorites*of the  notorious Mr. Fisher.  Camps supplied on shortest  notice aud lowest prices.
