Grand Forks News-Gazette.  The work of ballasting for the newly  laid steel on the Brooklyn and Stem-  winder spurs has been finally completed.  The latest arrivals in the family of  incorporated companies inBritish Columbia is the King Edward Mines Co.,  Ltd., Fairview.  During the week Republic mines  shipped 21 cars of ore, distributed as  follows: Mountain Lion, 7 cars to  Boundary Falls and Trail smelters:  Quilp, li cars to Granby smelter; Knob  Hill, 2 cars.  John B. Scrafford, formerly superintendent of the B. C. mine in Summit camp, but who lately has been at  the Mountain Lion, in Republic camp,  is in charge of the work recently started  at the Rathmullen group.  ��� On the Roderick Dhu, in Long Lake  camp, one of Boundary's high grade  properties that has been working  steadily for several months in a drift  from a new shaft recently started, a  ledge of $125 ore was struck this week.  Shipments from this property are expected to be started next w^eek, the ore  going to the Greenwood smelter. Tom  McDonnell is in charge of the work.  The work on the Golden Eagle, Republic camp, is progressing very satisfactorily, a depth of four feet being obtained daily. The rock encountered is  harder, highly mineralized and contains more calcite and spar���strong indications of nearness".of' the. ledge.  The shaft" is now down 260 feet and  general manager Straight is so well  pleased with the: vork done.and favorable indications ^that he conteuiplu-tes  _ putting on a third shift,of eight hours.  The financial condition ofthe company  is such as .to give every faculty for  working tbe mine.  At the March meeting of the Canadian Mining Institute,?, to bo held at  Toronto,-Frederick Keefer, manager of  the British Columbia Copper Co., will  read a paper, the subject yet to be announced.  Work was started this week on the  stringing ofthe wire on the power line  extension from Phoenix to the Greenwood smelter. A force of five men are  employed by the Cascade Water,  Power & Light Co. for the work.  Wm. Yolen Williams, superintendent of the Granby mine3, who has  been absent over two months for his  liealth,is expected to return to Phoenix  after the first of the month.* He has  recently been in Albuquerque, New  Mexico, Los Angeles and San Francisco.  There seems to be little chance of a  fuel famine for Boundary smelters for  the present. It is stated that in one  day this week there were 161 cars of  coal and coke *_'enroute from the East  Kootenay coalmines, on theKootenay-  Boundury division of the C. P. R.  A third Shay locomotive was added  to the ore hauling equipment of the C.  P. R. on the Phoenix branch this  week. The new engine, No. 1903, is  ten tons heavier than Nos. 1901 and  1902. All three of these huge", .machines are kept busy in taking care of,  the Granby mines tonnage.  EVE  SLOCAN MINING NOTES.  Phoenix Pioneer....  In the year 1903 the Granby smelter  preduced 16.932,356 pounds of copper,  356,900 ounces of silver and 47,500  ounces of gold.  - -Ore-is-being hauled byteams~from  the Sally, at Beayerdell, to Midway, a  distance of.over 50 miles, for shipment  by.rail to smelters./'._���"���  It is understood, that Morrison and  Edwards have made arrangements to  resume work--on. .the Blue Jay claim,  Skylark camp* next week.  Since'dbiiblc shifts were put on in  the No. 4 tunnel of the Granby mines,  the bore is growing;much faster. Driving is also going on from the inside  from the 300 foot level of the Old Ironsides.  .Slocan unll.  Twelve men* are employed at the  Comstoek*'*  The lease on the Sovereign-has bean  thrown up."  A deal is on for tho Mollie Hughes,  New Denver.  Upwards of 30 men are employed at  the Enterprise.  Sandon mines last week shipped 170  toils of lead ore.  Snowslides were plentiful last week  iu the Sandon camp.  The Ottawa is getting ready another  carload of pre to ship.  Returns on  the last carload of ore  from tho.Ottawa"gave 221 oz. in silver."  A.carload of pre from the Marion,  New Denver, came down on the boat  Wednesday.  Work will shortly be started up on  the Mountain.Chief .and California,  close to Denver.  The Reco Mining Co. has a surplus  in tlio treasury of $8,478.47 from last  year's operations.  Tlie Hewett ore is giving smeltery  turns of 176 oz. silver, 13 percent zinc  arid 8 per cent lead.  During the past two or three years musical critics  and lovers of music generally have bad their attention  attracted to a number of compositions which baye  been played by the leading orchestras of the country,  the composer's name invariably being hidden under a  nom de plume. The compositions were ofsuch un-  ushal merit, comprising both grace and beauty and  showing such an expert techinal skill and harmony,;  that a large measure of curiosity was aroused as to the  identity of the composer. It has just transpired that  the genius was none other than Mabel McKinley, the  favorite niece of the late President McKinley.. Miss.t  McKinley appeared as a star of a splendid vaudeyillei  bill at Shea's Theatre, Toronto, this week. Miss  McKinley became prominent as a vocalist during  President McKinley's first term at the White House.  Her superb singing soon attracted the attention ofthe  foremost people in Washington society and the diplomatic circle, including the late Lord Pauncefote,  the British Ambassador, and Count Cassino, the  Russian Ambassador.  A friend met *"\Vhitelaw Ried, the veteran editor of  the New York Tribune, the other day, and said to  him : "I see you are on tbe advisory board of. Mr.  Pulitzer's new college.of journalism at Columbia  University., Do you- expect to put an end to the  typographical error ?" * __     -  " The most we can hope to do," replied Mr. Reid,..

He met Mr. McFarlane, who was a Hud-  isop Bay factor at the lime ofthe Reil rebellion, at the  funeral of Pierre D'Eschambault on Tuesday. Reil's  confederate divulged to Mr. McFarlane that after the  murder a grave had been dug within the fort, and a  coffin supposed (o contain the tody lowered in the  presence of a battalion of Riel's soldiers. But Scott's  remains were not ;in that coffin, the mock interment  being but a ruse an the part of Reil, who did not  choose to trust many of his followers with thisjjknow-  ledge. After the mock interment the body was  dragged by a few trusty men to the bank of the Red  river and at a point near where the Broadway bridge  now stands was put through a hole in the ice and  sunk by mean's of a weight tied about the neck. The  weight was a'Hudson Bay grindstone. -Mr. McFarlane believes that an investigation will reveal this  grindstane and perhaps the bones of poor Scott. It  is likely an investigation will be undertaken.  L  P,  ocal and  JL rovincial  The new foundry will be in operation next week.  The wholesale men report bussness  satisfactory for the month.

Here is what  "the judge "says :~  "The fraud'for which the annulment of the mar  riage is sought, by way of counter-claim; is alleged to  arise Jromlhe fact that the plaintiff induced the marriage through false assertions of affection for the defendant, concealing her real motive, which was to  advertise herself in her profession as an actress by  means of tbis marriage.  Alt Appears from the matter pleaded, however,-  that this mental attitude of the wife, while hostile to  the ideal domestic state looked for by the husband,  has not prevented the parlies from living together in  some manner described by the defendant as 'nomadic,' and fraud, which finds its expre-sion not in  any facts, but solely in the deceiving party's state of  mind,- cannot suffice as a ground for the annulment of  the marriage.  " Marriage for interest may usually be conceived to  involve some concealment of the interest d party's  ;real motives.;' for the truth, if boldly proclaimed,  would be found offensive as a matter of deportment  among enlightened persons. The self-respect of  both parties would call for some show of affection.  ' "If the facts alleged iu this case could suffice for  an^annulment, marriage for love would be the only  lawful marriage���a condition favored by the poets,  but not as yet adopted in our system of jurisprudence."

Among the annecdotes of the late Herbert Spencer,  the famous philosopher, is one relating to the game  of billiards, of which he was fond and which he  played with fair skill. Spencer was uot a philosophical loser, and one day after being well beaten,  he turned on his antagonist vvith the remark : "Sir,  to. play a good game of billiards is the mark of a well  rounded education ; to play too good a game of billiards is the mark of an illspent youth."

Intimidation  in real life is serious enough, but when it conies to forcing departed spirits to register votes for their political  opponents it is time for the Crown Attorney's department to bestir itself. It would appear from disclosures made in Toronto in connection with the recent  municipal elections that some peaceful slumberers in  the city's cemetaries bad been brought back to their  old haunts and forced to plump for controllers. It is  not to the dead man's right of voting that exception  is had. Quite ehe contrary. Some dead men have  a much better right to vote than many live ones, who  slash dowti their crosses with flourishes of vast self-  satisfaction. It is rather to th~ coercion that seems  to have been applied to make this particular group of  shades plump for one man. What was the exact  nature of this coercion no one knows. Tbat it was  illegal is all that is necesary in the present instance  Some scheme must be divised to prevent the repstition  of the outrage in the future arid to secure for Toronto's  shades a free and unmolested exercise of the franchise.  Last Friday, at Victoria, was solemnized the marriage of Miss Mabel Sophia  Walkern, the only daughter of the  Hon. Mr. Justice Walkern,and A. G.  Langley, youngest son of the late A. J.

EDITORIAL  COMMENT.  "Whittaker Wright's last hours  showed thnt he felt quite as regardless  of his own fate as he had been of the  money of the misguided people who  had trusted him.  Something unusual is about to happen. Our direction has been directed  to the fact that the last issue of the  Tribune did not contain mention once  of the name of Nelson's greatest patriot, the would-be Hon. John Houston.  It seems now as if the Legislature  .would be able to finish up its business  early next month.

Sydney, C. Ii., should become famous  as a health resort. A recent issus Of  the Record of that city, contained the  announcement of throe deaths which  had just taken place. One of the n umber was 83 years of age, another 94, and  the third over 100, and the circum-j.  stance did uot appear to cause any un-  usal comment.  There ,seems to be some disposition  - on the part of Nelson Conservatives to'  patch up their difference.1*, and unite  for the election of Tion. Charles  Mackintosh. Ifc is well that this.should,  be so. There can be no "gain in denying the fact that it is only in union the  Conservatives can hope to win.this constituency. Mr. Mackintosh's opponent  bas a way with him that wins Votes,  and during the late session in the Houso  has demonstrated that he has ability  as well. Besides this, he is known  throu-g-hout the constituency, having  kept'iu touch with his constituents  since his election over three years ago.  It will be thus seen that the Conservatives stand  very  much in  need of  union at tho present time, and it is  pleasing to note that so far as Nelson is  concerned they seem to fully realize  this fact. Mr. Galliher ia a favorite in  Nelson and we want to keep him here.  Moreover, the Conservatives are likely  tb win in the next election, and it  would be'well to send a man to OttuVa  who will be in sympathy with tho new  administration.

He had but one rival in -that lino:  jPalgrave, who. compiled the ''Golden  !Treasury." Mitch interest sprang up  ��� among their friend's when the two went  ioffon a trip/together.;:  "It's an even chance which will return  .alive," said one man, solemnly. .

'��� y ��� j  One night Buckle, the author of "The j  [History    of Civilization,"    was    laying;  jdown the law on every subject,' with a|  'magnificent   pomposity   that   made   the'  'table quake.

Torrents of. imprisoned knowledge were  thereupon poured 0:1 Buckle's head, until  the historian of civilization sat wrathful,  extinguished, unite. But a. little la ter ho  had his revenge. Some one mentioned a  new dictionary as a good one.  "It is," said "Buckle, with solemnity,  "it Is one of the few dictionaries I hnv*1  read through with pleasure."  The intimation that he had read any  dictionary through for pleasure so as-.  tonished the guests that they forgot his  past discomfiture in'new awe.  A Business Woman,  Mr3.

TIERNEY, GENERAL ACEKT ft:  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  The Present State of Literature.  Cnrlylo once man an ''Enquiry into  the Sfate of German Literature," aud  others have investigated the sta.te ot" letters in other lands. As it is not essential to be bilious, nor prerequisite lo be  ulieii, ah enquiry into the-statc of politic  and other literature in America is in  order, writes the humorist, Joseph Smith.  That it may be well done, and not half-  baked, I do it.myself, for, though mocS--  est, I "am Literary and Authoritative, if  not well'read; almost shrinking enough  - for a reviewer.  Literature i-j in a bad way; it ba3 no  friends except mercenary publishers ani>  impeeuniou3 writers; even critics, who  know literature when it bites them.  speak harshly of it. Literature has baen  going down hill for years; it has now  licen stranded in the department'stores,  ���where Shakespeare and Laura Jean Lib-  bey battle for recognition with Indiana  poets and Battle Creek breakfast foods.  Poetry, which is viewed with alarm by  alienitits, is a goner. When tho twenty-  fivc-cent table d'hote waa strangled by  the Decf Tni3t, the Poets' Union succumbed; and to-day poets arc not raised  except in captivity nnd suburban Boston.  History has been decaying since ifc became wedded lo that robust form of fiction called the New England Family History; genealogy, gossip, gush and gab  have ruined ifc. Ida Tar Ball has dropped.  Napoleon and Lincoln for Kerosene and  Rockefeller. ... Only the Spanish  War heroes), whose pens are mightier  than, their swords, are left to stagger humanity with" their memoir's and amaze  empires with their exploits.  The historical novel, which is seldom  "historical and never novel, is the only  dangerous rival which -Reformed Oats  and Jagless Rye encounter in a free press  nest to pure reading matter. All depend  on Tobustuous inveracity for reputation  and sturdy credulity for consumption;  but the oats and rye have some value.  The Swashbuckler novel���the cousin of  the H. N.���lias waned since its heroes  have been translated to the stage. An  imported syndicate hero in red boot3, abbreviated blue breeches, green shirt  waist, blonde curls, brown Arizona hat,  yellow   feathers   and.'-a-."'secret'   society  , sword, is not'calculated to make literature respected and popular. The Froh-  manized Swashbuckler has added a'new-  horror to the drama/ another terror .to  literature.' .-"*'.'.���  Literary translations make ' countless  thousands yawn; .they lack even their  native attraction���indecsney. D'Annun-  zio done into English is dullness and dirt;  Ibsen suffers from.Norse-algia; and the  geniu3 of France, Germany and.P.ussia  is Englished, to congest junk stores and  ,-feed furnaces. '. '''"���  , 'Plainly the Literary Outlook is alarming. R. H. Davis has quit; Bar:g3 swings  between post-mortem persiflage and historical grave robbery; Kipling has taken  to golf, politics and epithets; James is  foggy, in several languages; Dooley is  married; Roosevelt is strenuous in everything but literature; Ho wells has ceased  to JHowell^LochinYar^liaa gene West  again; and I am not feeling very well  myself. It looks a3 if the reading public would havo. to go back to such "Has  Beens"'a"s Tennyson, Thackeray, Dicken3,  Emerson," Gooper, Hawthorne, arid such.  . . .

Creston, Dec. 15th, li)03.  '  ���One day recently, says the Kochcster  "Post-Express," a certain justice of the  Supreme Court of that district invited a  friend of hi3, a lawyer, to go sailing  with him. The wind wa3 "brisk at the  start, and it soon freshened, and their  littlo craft hegan to toss and roll in_ a  manner that caused the lawyer much inward uneasiness.

A discussion  vrose, and the punster declared his ability to squeeze a pun from the name of  inyone on the ship. "Wait a bit," ex-  ������laimed Dunlop, "I'll wager you the  'mokes that you can't work it on my  aame."
