VOLUME  VIII.  NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1905.  'rot  BRITAIN'S NEW- PRISON REGULATIONS;THINGS TALKED OF DURING THE WEEK IN NELSON.  7-V  The New Prison Regulations, which  came into force in Britain on April 1,  are an indication of tlie tendency of  reee'nt years to make punishment ed-  ucational in its character. The new  regulations prescribe that there shall  be a separate clacsification of convicts  sentenced to penal servitude,, who on  conviction were under the ago of  twenty-one years, and this as soon as  possible after conviction and after a  full-enquiry into tlie general character  and antecedents of,each convict. The  classification is as follows: Selected  convicts under the oge of eighteen ;  convicts never previously convicted or  who are not habitual criminals-or of  corrupt habits and who are considered  to be eligible for the star class, and or-  dinary convicts not eligible. .The  classes are as far as practicable to be  kept separate from each other and from  the*'older convicts, and the governor  and: chaplain are required to devote  special attention with a view to acquiring personal influence over them They  . are-tobe taught the ordinary subjects  of the elementary education code by  lectures and addresses and-'by the provision of library books and useful literature. Separate treatment is no longer  to be considered good, for the prisoners  are to be employed in a^soci*-'  tion in workshops or in outdoor  work such as farming and specially in-..  sbructed'in useful trades and industries  fitting them after their release to earn  their livelihood in an honest -way.  The work that is done by the various  "Discharged������.������Prisoners' Aid Societies is  officially recognized by tlie provision .  that allows special -'am. iigements' to be  made with them.for tlie future welfare  of those.who.'have served their sentences.  r The division and classification of  prisoners serving a term of penal servitude is in future tb be as follows: There  is to be an ordinary division, which  consists of three subdivisions .and a  long-sentence division. In the ordinary division   the convict who  h'as  not been previously convicted 01 who  is not an habitual criminal or of corrupt habits is eligible for the llrst or  starjclass. An intermediate class includes convicts who by reason of their  general character and antecedents are  not considered suitable .-i u. starolass  and who are yet not considered bad  enough to place in the recidivist class.  The third or recidivist class is to comprise those.who have been previously  sentenced to penal servitude or whose  record shows grave or persistent crime  or prisoners whose license under a sentence of penal-servitude has been re-  yoked. Promotion to or degradation  from the intermediate class may be  earned by proof of reformation or by  the gxercise ofn bad influence on their  prison "associates. While all male  prisoners serving a term of penal servitude must pass the first of their sentence in solitary confinement the periods vary according to the class in  which they are placed. All' female  convicts pass the first three; months of  .theirsentences in solitary confinement.  Tbe long sentence division consists  of convicts, as the term denotes,who  are required to serve long 'terms of  penal serTitude. These, ris far as practicable, are to be_ kept in a prison or  part of a prison set aside for them,  they are to wear a special dress, and  the seeming hopelessness of their lot is  to be relieved by a provision tbat tbey  may earn by special industry, with  good conduct, a gratuity continuously  throughout their sentence according  to a prescribed scale, and a portion of  such gratuity may be. used for the purchase of certain articles of comfort or  relaxation,.to be purchased-from the  prison store. The remainder of the.  gratuity will be applied.jtfter careful  enquiry, for the benefit of the convict.  Meals are to be allowed in association,  and conversation Ai perm i ted both at  hours of exercise and at meals, but not  at labor. Abuse of the privileges will  result in degradation to tlie ordinary  division..  JOHN L. SULLIVAN GIVES GOOD ADVICE  i The discussion in connection with  {he discharge of S. Coulter, the late  driver of the lire hall team, and the  appointment of one O'Connor in his  place, is developing in interest. Coulter was discharged without cause, at  least Mayor Houston has as yet advanced no reasonable excuse for bis  act and the chief of the lire brigade  bears testimony to the former chief's  efficiency. Mayor Houston claims to  have special powers .and..-privileges  under tlie act governing'municipalities, and a majority .of'the,' council  maintain, and reasonably so, tliat the  mayor has interpreted the act to suit  his own purposes���indeed, the latter is  the view taken hy the citizens gencr-  rally. Those who have studied the  clause on which Mayor Houston bases  his preposterous claim, cannot see how  His Wort hip can place the construction upon it be has in dealing with  Coulter. However, he seems determined to adhere to his own ih'terpre-  tation of the clause, and, as usual, he  is abusing everyone who differs with  him. He is issuing all-kinds of idiotic  challenges to confound his alleged  "enemies." He asks Aid. Bird to sue  him for libel, seeming to forget that  there is hot much satisfaction in prose-  outing a man for libel who crawls  when he gets into court and hastens  to tender the most abject apology  when lie realizes that be is beaten.  Coulter is accustft of having used an  obscene expression in referring to  Miiyor Houston. This is denied by  Coulter. Indeed, it is believed tliat  the words .suggested by dashes in the  Tribune arte more likely to have beeu  selected by Mr. Houston from his own  chaste vocabiilaryCand attributed to the  inoffensive Coulter for a purpose. But  this is not the question. It is, is  Mayor Houston absolute, and is the  majority in the council there merely  for ornamental purposes? If so, why  are the ratepayers every year called  upon to elect aldermen ? -Why, indeed, is there a "Progressive Party *'?  There seems to be only one way to  settle the dispute, and that is by an  appeal to the courts to interpret the  clause in the act*    Inthe meantime it  "Don't ever foul-in your bout with  life,"'gnicl John 'L. Sullivan, addressing the convicts in', the Marquette  State -Penitentiary, "for the law is the  referee and the decision will go against  yon, and go hard, some time or other.

John Ij.  was en route to Seattle, ami when the  convicts heard^he was going through  Marquette they joined in a request  that they be allowed to invito liim to  talk to them. The warden consented  and John Ii. readily accepted the invi-  tation.  He was cheered when he came on  to speak. He. surveyed the convicts  and remarked to the warden.:  "��� 1. d like to get some of those boys in  trainiug. 'There's great prize ring  stuff income of them."  Then he began toiking, starting in  witn his fistic homily about lighting  fair with no fouls in tho battlo of life.  "I am- awful sorry to see you fellows  here and I hope you'll all get out  sooner or later. But, boys, let me tell  you one thing. You've got to fight  fair. If you don't you'll get a knockdown blow in the end either from life  itself or  irom   the   referee���the law.  will bo interesting to watch developments in this marvellously interesting  case.

NUMBER  4>  NOW  " WHO   IS   PROFESSOR  BRYCE ?\  Under the caption, "Who is Prof.  Bryce?" the Toronto Mail and Empire  has the following :  The coercionists are trotting out all.  thc old timber they ean find with a  view to bolstering up tlieir cause.  Their latest discovery is Prof. Bryce, of  Winnipeg, who is represented as "a  great authority on education," and as  heartily in favor of coercion���only he  wants it called by another name. Who  is this professor of coercionist proclivities? Mr. Bryce has a history, which  shows him to be about as stable as water, and as impartial as Clifford Sifton.  Before Prof. Bryce supposed that the  Separate school question would be  made an issue by his party in Manitoba he had the misfortune to write a  book, in which he came out strongly  and indeed enthusiastically in favor of  the Separate school system. He stated  in the book (page 312) that "the Local  Legislature of Manitoba has paid its  book form. When in 189G the Federal  Government wanted to _restore the  system which Prof. Bryce had pronounced wise, the professor became  furious. He published a magazine article pronouncing (he system of Separatism impossible, and wanted to know-  how the Mormons could be refused the  right to teach their doctrines, if Roman Catholics were permitted to teach  theirs in their schools? From.the.  press the professor went tothe General  Assembly ofthe Presbyterlkn Church,  and delivered violent speeches against  coercion. "It is not a political ques-  tion," he said. "It is a question ot  religion. It is a question as to whether,  we shall be able, in the faceof a concrete and united and powerful influence  in the Dominion, to let our provinces*  have the education they desire or not!"  Prof. Bryce was against Separate  schools, although he favored them a -  few years before, and  he was irrecon-  = "        ; ���  r"  ���  rc"  ..cui�� u-iore, ana  ne was irrecon-  best atteution to Public schools for the | cilably oppotcd to coercion or Federal  education of the people. It was found  impossible to induce Roman Catholics  to unite in a general system of public  education. They were given Separate  schools, but as they have not increased  to so great an extent by immigration,  and now constitute not more than one-  tenth of tho population, and moreover  have chiefly settled together in groups,  intervention with  the   rights of tho  province.  .Now, the same anti-coercion prefes-  sor has been induced to issue what purports to be an interview approving,  first of Separate schools for the North-  West, and secondly, of course of the.  Dominion Government in laying  them cm without tlie consent of tho  tiiere is virtually for the whole pro- people.

The wisdom of "the  Legislature,.hasr.fortunately provided  this !" Prof. Bryce regarded Separate-  schools as a wise provision at that  time: Later on,"Messrs.. Greenway  and Sifton abolished these institutions.  Thereupon Prof. Bryce turned round  an d declared himself as opposed to tlie  schools, which he had previously  stated had been wisely and fortunately  provided. ._  The Bryce literature against Separate  schools was quite voluminous and not  not thus tied to the peo.ffl; of the West,  there will be doubts as to whether they  are compulsory, and, as a consequence,  litigation; ' What fs to~be said of a man'  o^ this kind ?

Cases which come up suddenly  at race meetings are always handled  by the Newmarket committee. If the  secretary is notified of the case in tlie  evening the committee ean beappealed  to next morning and the case can be  disposed of." One rf the gravest offences either a bookmaker or backer has  to fear from these committees is a failure to liquidate his betting liabilities.  According to tlie rules of betting he  lias a whole year to settle the debt ; if  'he fails lo do so he is then posted in a  conspicuous place at Newmarket and  at Tattersalls, and he is then branded  for life.   The defaulter is also reported  this does not mean that he can do business in the grand stand or any place  his fancy tempts him. The local race  committee stipulates where hesliallset  up shop and he has to be satisfied with  the location or else get out. Bookmakers, too, have to be careful of their  language and a few have been known  to be reprimanded for the use of words  considered in the United States to be  part of the eveiyday vocabulary.  Several years ago the Jockey Club refused an application by some swell  bookmakers for the privilege of erecting a temporary umbrella over their  heads.  Everyone has heard of "Davy  Crockett's 'ccon," the one which said,  "Don't shoot, I will come down." To  "come down like Davy Crockett's  'coon"  ii a  colloquial   expression  in  common use.      Crockett and the'coon  ** ,   ,  that came clown are so popularly associated that to attempt to disconnect  them is well nigh to attempt the impossible. To explain a thousand times  that it was not Davy Crockett to whom  the 'coon came down were without  effect; the world hus it "Davy  Crock ett's'coon," and the world will  have it so, and there it stands.  Thc real hero of the'coon story wta  Capt. Martin Scott; the story was a  tribute to bis skillasa rifleshot. Scott  was a brave man and a good American  soldier ofthe Mexican War period, and  he deserved to be remembered ; but  even such credit as tbe 'coon story attributed to him has been filched from  him and "given to another, who did not  need it.  Scott wad a native of Vermont.  From liis youth he was famous as a  shot. An exploit of his twelfth year  was the slaying, unaided and alone,  with his father's purloined smoothbore, of a marauding bear which had  defied the entire posse comitatus ofthe  grown-upsof the neighborhood. There  were no laws in those days for the protection of sheep-stealing bears. A feat  of Scott's mature years was the cure of  a sick man by shooting him. Thi  heroic treatment was administered in  a duel. Scott shot his antagonist  through the lungs. The man had been  sick with consumption, but from that  moment began to mend, and got well.  If Scott did not actually effect the cure,  he at least had the credit of it.  The 'coon story was printed about  the year 1840, l\\e years after the death  of Crockett. It wus told of Capt. Scott,  and ran like this:  "Capt. Martin Scott was out iu the  woods one day with a party of friends,  hunting. They wcrescatted through  Ihe woods, each hunting separately.  One of the party at length came upon  a raccoon that was sitting in one of thc  highest branches of a very tall tree,  lie fired at him and missed. One by  one the rest of the party came up and  tried tlieir hand, each missing the distant 'coon, who grew saucier as they  proceeded. At length Capt. Scott arrived and was in the aot of pulling  trigger, when the'coon looked slyly  around the limb and said :  "Who are you?"  "I am Scott?"  "What Scott?"  "I am Capt. Scott."  "Are you Capt. Martin Scott?"  "Thesame."  "Well," said the 'coon, iinlimbering  himself, "you need not shoot; I will  comedown."

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  The Economiste Francais of  Paris, estimates the world's gold  production for the current year at  $400,000,000. Last year's production amounted to $358,000,000.  It is really too bad tbat James J.  Hill does not reply to the attacks  made against his railway policy by  tbe Nelson Tribune. The railway  magnate seems to be almost as oblivious to the utterances ol* the  irresponsible Tribune as is the  the average Nelson citizen who  Suffers in the same way.  Mr. R. C. Ross, C. B., British  Consul at Buenos Ayres. states in  iu his report to the j. oreigu Office,  that various geld, dredging companies have been floated to carry on  this industry iu the Argentine Republic and in Bolivia just across the  frontier. Preliminary borings and  tests that have been made show that  there are very good prospects, bui,  as /the companies referred to have  had a dredge at work (one has been  running, a dreige in Brazil with  , some success), it is impossible to  Say with certainty, what may_.be the  result.  A gocd deal is being made of  Certain statements attributed to  ReV. George Bryce, of Manitoba  College, regarding the acceptability  to the Northwest Territories of the  Autonomy Bill recently passed in  the Canadian House of Commons,  and of the fairness of its provisions  to all classes of that coram unity.  Those, however, who know the  feverend gentleman well are aware  that the genus politician bulks very  Jar.gelyJnJijs compcisUio", and that  he is of au extremely Grit type. In  his reported interview il is the politician who speaks and not the reverend gentleman. The latter is obviously sunk in the former. ���....  The British Museum has approved of a suggession for ilie preservation of phonograph records of  the voices ofprominent singers, orators, actors, and the works of instrumentalists. When the idea was  first submitted to the trustees, the  objection was raised that the records  would not be of a sufficiently permanent character. This objection  has, however, now l>een removed ;  and the records for the national collection will be master records of  nickel, from which records for service may be molded as desired. A  similar collection is already being  formed in Italy. The collection for  the British Museum is to be started  immediately. All the most prominent public men, singers, and musicians of the day will be requested  to make records. As years go by,  the collection will increase in value  and size, and it is certain to become  one of the most valued of tlie nation's treasures. The records, however, will not be available fi r immediate use, but will be reserved  for reproduction in the r.ext generation.  PRESS COMMENT.  One of the many differences to be  noted between our Mr. Kennedy  and his patron saint, is that Sir Wilfrid Laurier risks bis political party  on behalf of his religion, while Mr.  Kennedy sacrifices the principles of  his church to the interests of the  political party whose livery he  wears.���New Westminster Columbian.

P. for  Nelson, says in his paper, the Tribune, that he is admittedly a  "spoilsman" in politics, *;id adds  that "it is practiced by every practical politician who holds office in  ���Gaiiada^to=nday-,=aud=no=othcri=kindn  of politician ever,had or will have  office in Canada." Mr. Houston's  frankness may be admired, but it is  to lie hoped, very sincerely,'-that he  is entirely wrong, What is. needed  in Canada is tbe sort of politician  who serve's his country not for his  own good but for tbat.ol his country.      Canada may be able   to  ad-  ._���      # .   #   -  v-.uce in   prosperity in spite of her  unfoitunale political methods because of her great natural wealth ���  just as the United States have prospered, but unless and until boodling  is cleaned out of our national life  there is danger to the moral character ofthe whole community. The  only permanent prosperity has for  its foundation a patriotic and honorable people, and those citizens who  record their vote for a politician for  lhe sake of what they can get from  him iu return, have   no.idea of the  ' I, .  sacred character  of the ballot, and  no appreciation of the value.of the  free institutions under which they  live. Mr. Houston is a politician  With a peculiar.pose. He wants to  be. thought tinnsual and he succeeds  in keeping himself before the public, but many years have passed  since he was known to achieve r.ny-  tliing but a temporary commotion  in which he was the odd, ineffectual  central figure.���Victoria Week.

John Her.'ry is a sporty man-  Qhout-town, the very antithesis ol  Richard Harding- Davis's refined Van  Bibber. From his account nf his experiences at the races with his best  ffirl, we quote a few characteristic extracts:  When we -g-ot to the track they were  bunching the -bones for the first race,  so I told Clara Jane I thought I'd crawl  H^down.^to^thea.r.ins__and__pl^ei^^ro_=oi^  three   thousand    around    among    Lhe'  needy.  Two or three thousand, and me with  nothing but a live-spot in my. jeans,  jand the return ticket money in that!  "Sure!" I said; "I've got a pipe!"  ���"Well,- I hope .you won't smoke St'  near me.   I hate pipes!" she said.  "All right; I'll take my pipe dowa .-o  the betting ring and smoke it there!" I  ���aid, and we pjyi-ted good friends.  (In front of-'the band stand he inert a  mtmberNjf friends ready to'give Vum  tips on the winners:  Every Breezy Boy I met- had a different lumen, an<J they called me into the  wharf and unloaded.  I figured it out that If I had bet five  dollars on each good thing they gave  me I would have lost l'oiir hundred  thousand dollars.  Then I ducked under, sopped up a  stein of root beer, and climbed up again  to the hurricane deck.  "Did you 'bet?" enquired Clara Jane.  "Only seven hundred and thirty dollars," I said; "a mere bag o'.shells."  I leave a: call for 7.30 every .morning,  Arid I suppose that's the reason I was  ��o swift with the figures.  "My! what a lot of money!" said tho  Pair One; "do point out the horse you  ' bet on!    I shall be awfully Interested,  in this racel"  (John Henry picked out a horse at  random, declaring tliat the only way it  could lose "was for some sore-head to  get out and turn the track around.")  Sure enough, the favorite galloped  Into port and dropped anchor six hours  ; ahead of the other clams.  I win over two thousand two hundred  .dollars���conversation money���and Bonnie Brighteyes was in a frenzy of delight.'   . .j_-:  I had'a nervous chill for fear she'd,  declare herself In on the rake-off.  ��� Put she didn't, so I excused myself  .-_.n4 backed down the ladder to cash in.  (Still the wary John Henry listened  to 'the tips and refrained from betting.)  When I got back to the stand I had  a preoccupied air. The five-spot in my  jeanS w_S C7_Y.*Il,.,._ Wi"*"- aV__ oegg'ms  for a change of scene.  When   Clara  Jane    asked    me   how  much I had 'bet on the race just about  to start, I could only' think of nine hun-  ..dred dollars.  When she    wanted to know    which  horse  I   pointed   my   finger   at   every  -toad on the track, and said: "That one,  ..ever there!" *-  Jt w<?n.  'J_.t the end ���of the third race I was  .19,218. to "'the good.  Clara Jane had it down in black and  white on the back of an envelope, ln  figures that couldnU lie.  (John Henry remarked that when  Clara begged him to be content with  his winnings and not bet any more, he  promised, "but she didn't notice that I  had my fingers crossed.")  I simply had to have a roll to flash on  the way home, so I took my lonely V  and went out into the Promised Land  after the nuggets Maddy had put mo  wise to.' ...      *  (Pretty Boy was his choice, despite  the fact that the bookmakers told him  he had made a mistake.)        .  When the horses got away with Pretty Boy lh front I started in to stand on  my_ he.ad, jbut changed my mind and  ^WalIoYvl:d~ITa'Ha'tlfc"Wogra"1nm*eV ~~" m  Pretty Boy nt the quarter! Me for  Recter'a till they put tlie shutters up!  Pretty Boy at the halt! Ma down to  Tiffany's in the''morning dragging  tiaras away in a dr y!  Pretty Boy at the three-quarter pole!  Me doing the free-library gag all over  the place!  But just as they fame in the stretch  Pretty Boy forgot something and went  back after it.  The roach quit mi cold at the very  door of the safety deposit vaults.  (Of course Clara Jane never guessed  his plight, for he "rushed down among  the ramblers and made a swift touch  for the price of a couple cf rides home,"'  and on the way back promised Clal-a  Jane that he would be awfully careful  of his $19,218���conversation money.)  SMOKE  THE CELEBRATED  A French savant who lately re-turned  from Egypt, bringing a royal mummy  with hlni. had a somcwhait curious cx-  oerience at Marseilles. On the cas��  tielng opened at the custom house thert  the olllcer on duty, hearing thait lt contained a Pharaoh, looked up Pharaoh  In the tariff. But no mention could bt  found of such an article. Then it occurred to him that a nice high duty  was exacted on dried fish, and the savant was obliged to pay as If for that  commodity.  Rural free delivery, according to the  report of the United States Postmaster-General, is being rapidly, extended  in that country. The number of routes  in operation increased from 1,276 _t the  beginning of the last fiscal year to  4,301 at Its close; and under the present  plans the number of routes by th* first  of next July will be 8.G00. By ths>S dat��  the rural population receiving dallj  service will reach 5;709,000, and t\ie delivery system will then cover more  than a quarter of the eligible portion ot  the country. "  A remarkable story is- going tha  rounds of the English papers with regard to. General Sir Ian Hamilton's  spectacles. It appears that General  Hamilton lost a pair of spectacles In  the battle of Majuba Hill. They were  apparently picked up by a Boer whom  they suited, and who kept them for  twenty years. In the early part of thi!  present year the spectacles were found  on the body of a dead Boer. The case  had General Hamilton's name on It,  and the glasses were in due course returned to their original owner.
