Uj.h.uanto_ Vii.vica  <".-'���  v. Tradition and legend tupply a long  history of the thirLy pieces of sih-..-  paid to Judas for thc betrayal of Christ,  of one of which Mark Fisher of New  York City thinks he was, robbed recently. A series of traditions \vcu!d  carry it back to the time of Torali, father of Abraham ; for his hands, we  are told, fashioned and made the  "thirty pieces of silver" which were  kept intact" from that time until lhey  were used as the ^purchase money for  the potter's Held", or ���'field of blood."  Terah having made them, Abraham  t"ok theiu with hiru when lie left  Cbaldea, and used them as part of the  purchase 'money for tho ouvo of M.ioh-  pelah. They appear next in the hands  of the. Ishmaelites,- who paid them to  Joseph's brethren when they sold him  into bondage.  As thc Biblical version of thc story  says that'only twenty pieces of silver  was the prieo paid for Joseph we must  conclude, "in order to keep the thirty  pieces intact, either that the-other ten  -uv-a'*-  were paid with them for some other  purpose,'or accept the statement made  by a writer iu the fouilecuth century  that "For thritli pens they sold that  Childe."'  However this may be, tradition says  that these same pieces of silver came  into the possession of Joseph himself  when his brethren went down into  Egypt to buy corn. Ou the death of  Jacob they found their way into thc  royal treasury of Shebu, where Joseph  sent them to pay for spices to emb.dm  his father. Here they, remained, undisturbed, l'or a long period of years, in  fact until  the  Queen-of Sheba made  ��� her-wouderful vioib lo-Kinjf-Sulomon,-  - when they figmed among the gifts  presented by the Queen to the ruler  whose fame had roused   her etnioMty.  From Jerusalem thoy found their  way back to Arabia. This was in the  reign of Itckobomu, when tlie .King ot  \^ Egypt, having despoiled the temple,  gave them to the King of Arabia, his  ally, as part of his share in the plunder.  Again they rest, this Ihue.uulil tho  birth of Christ, when Mel-bior, one of  the wise meii, brought them from  Arabia and ' placed them at tha  of the infant Saviour as part  of his ottering. " During the hurried  flight into Egypt, they were in the  keeping of tiie Virgin Alary; .but  when closely pursued by the soldiers  of Herod she stopped to inquire her  way of a man who was sowing corn,  and in her haste and confusion she  dropped theiii.  Scarceiy.were the Holy Family out  of sight when the corn the man had  beeu sowing miraculously 'sprang u;  and grow. Almost immediately Her-'  od's soldiers appeared and inquired of  the sower if he had seen the infant  Saviour and his parents. The man replied that no one had passed that way  . siucethe corn was sown, and the soldiers, considering further pursuit iu  that direction useless, turned back aiid  gave up the search.  The money was found by a shepherd, who kept it intact for year.--.  Then, being afflicted by a disease that  was pronounced incurable, he applied  to the Saviour and was healed- Out  of gratitude he presented the mouey  as an o'lVring at  the  high altar,  and  noon aficrward it  was  used lo pay Ju- j  j das for his act of treachery. "i  Various reasons haye been given to  explain why Judas exacted just that  amount  .self cheated out of so much, through  the use of the box of ointment, for if it  had been sold for three hundred pence  he would have appropriated a tenth.  Again, it is said that Judas, having  been sent by Christ on Holy Thursday with that amount of money to  mako ready the Last Supper, fell  asleep by the wayside and was robbed.  [n the midst of his distiese, Pilate  appeared, and being templed ha agreed  t> betray his Master for tlie amount of  money of which he had been robbed.  When smitten by remorse, he "cast  down tlie pieces of silver in tbe Tera-  p'e'' and the priests, believing it uot  lawful���being the price of blood���to return them to the treasury, purchased  with, them the potter's field, the "field  of blood," The field was long supposed to be possessed of unusual pow-  ers, among them that of rapidly decomposing bodies buried in it, so that  large quantities of the earth were carried away. The Pisan Crusaders took  some of the earth " for the Campo  Santo in PUa, and the Empress Helena had some of it taken to Rome.  Portions of it are still shown in various parts of .Europe where it is said to  have been preserved.  Ono tradition says that only half  of the thirty pieces of silver were  used as the purchase money  for   lhe ."field  of blood,"  the others  If the Nelson Tribune desires only  to be tallied about, it certainly has  achieved its object this week. It is  doubtful if any paper in Canada ever  created a greater sensation than did  the Nelson publication when it ap*  peared on the streets last Monday  evening. Respectable citizens read it-  and then consigned it to tlie flames,  'while those who really enjoy a coarse  thing, -like vultures perched on the  carrion, devoured the editorial contents  with gluttonous relish. Itis not the object of this comment to refer particularly to the item in question ; but it is the  sacred duty of every honorable man to  resent the' mendacious statement  therein contained. The man who  wrote it says he didjso believing it to be  true, but that can in no regard be accepted as justification for the publication of an item-that -in the opinion of  many was too vile to even find an ob  seme corner.in lhe Police Gazette.  Ib is no defense in a court of law to  say that someone said so-and-so, and  tho "man who believes he can evade  being given as a bribe to the soldiers 'just punishment by setting up such a  who guarded thc sepulchre, that they j plea is only deceiving, himself. - Nor  "might say that the body of our Lord  had been stolen. Here, according to  liadition, all trace of them was lost..  VENTS ANO GOSSIP  can a newspaper justify the'publication  of a defamatory statemen t .by pleading  that the writer was ^credibly informed  that the 'assertions contained -therein  were   true."

Miss  Chadwick  which was too strong a match for any  ten a trivial occurrence was magnified  into a flagrant breach op the moral  law. [n no instance, however, was  the information of a character that  shouhl find its way to the columns of  a respectable newspaper, but, if the  ofi'eiis-es had been committed, they  could be bcit attended to by the parents of tbe offendeis or the police officers.  Tjij. Economist has heard frequently of young girls getting beyond the control of their parents. If  this was the case it was manifestly the  duty ofthe person who knew so much  about it to warn the parents.. We  have been told of boys who were dropping into bad, habits; evidently another case for parental authority. Time  and again it has beeii hinted that certain young men were guilty of serious  crimes. This paper never claimed for  its.lfthe functions of police, jury and  judge, so it turned a deaf ear to the  evil-mluded gossip. Repeatedly have  the alleged domestic infidelities of a  lecherous - old Impostor beeu forced  upon our attention, presumably with  the object of���warning husbands to  doublelock their doors. It was asserted with due attention to the minutest  details that this old rascal was a frequent .visitor at his neighbor's house  during the latter's absence ; that he  had robbed that same neighbor of the  love of his wife ; that in his nocturnal  peregrinations he slinked along dark  streets with his hat slouched over his  eyes   conscious'of- having   flagrantly  violated the commandment which en-  s  joins us not to covet bur neighbor's  wife ; that he had broken up one family in Nelson already, and would soon  have another domestic dissolution to  his credit. These and more nauseating  details of this man's lascivious deeds  were supplied, but they had no interest" tor Tub EcoxoariST, aud we are  still in ignorance as to the identity of.  this thick-lipped voluptuary. These  entertaining stories may or may not  have been founded on fact; that  is no concern of ours ; but it docs concern us that thc columns of the newspapers are kept clean and free from  anything that will suggest an immoral  thought or desire.

NUMBEK^^/.  MEB-BE.  Again, we do not believe that tho  citizens of Nelson aro just as immoral  as the Tribune would lead the public  to believe. There may be a black  sheep here and there, and occasionally  a wolf may prowl around and fasten  his fangs into one of thc flock. But  we have here at least our share of gossips. Furthermore, it so happens that  iu this city there are two classes educated in widely different schools. We  have citizens who regard" everything  outside of their former narrow environment in the east as being immoral;  and we have those wlio were brought  up in the less restraining surroundings of the ' Pacific Coast. Conduct that would be regarded as  positively shocking and cause a scandal in an Eastern Canadian hamlet,  would not be considered harmful or  unconventional on' thc Pacific Coast.  For this reason new arrivals from the  east aic often horrified at occurrences  that arc not considered as matters even  entitled to passing notice on the coast.  Yet it is doubtful if Eastern men and  women at heart are any purer than  those enjoying the greater social latitude prevailing in the west. Some  may suggest that they are not quite so  good, and that there is more hypocrisy  in their make up.  A certain class of men may say that  it is the duty of the newspapers to  make inquiries as to the truth of such  assertions, and, if discovered to be true,  follow them up with exposure of the  evil-doers. But would that make the  transgressor- better. Would he not  brazen out his moral delinquencies,  and possibly find some  weak-minded  But to return to the Tribune's war  ou women. It is quito conceivable that  thc unsophisticated editor of that pa per  believed he was rendering faithful service to the public when'he wrote the  scurrilous item j;omplained of. If he  did so believe, be can never expect to  get his reward on this earih. Too  many labor under the impression tbat  he was not moved by such a benevolent sentiment. For-our part we prefer not to express an opinion. But we  d___-r-cSI"i-lt-_->r__the__lioii(ir_of_the_press'  of British Columbia, that a paper published in the city of Nelson should  have violated the ethics of respectable  journalism. The indecent charge was  absolutely without foundation. Newspaper writers should guard against inflicting unnecessary wounds, especially where women are concerned.  We arc not saints. No, not one of us,  with the possible exception of the pres-  eut editor of tbe Tribune.  (,15y Win.  Henry Drunmiond, M. D.)

The Rebeccas will hold a nother of  their semi-monthly dances next Monday night, at Fraternity Hall. Irwin's  orchestra will be in attendance.  Irishmen and the descendants of  Irishmen in Nelson will celebrate St.  ^Patrick's Day with a smoker in Fraternity Hall. The preparations indicate tliat it will be a delightful entertainment.. The proceedings will be  enlivened with Irish music by Irwin's  orchestra.  The Ladies' Guild of. St. Mark's  Church, Kaslo, held a successful concert in Eagles' Hall, last Tuesday  evening. The programme consisted  exclusively of Irish melodies.  tern ily Hall, Friday of last week is  pronounced by those present to have  been one of the most enjoyable social  gatherings of the season.  The coming summer promises to be  a banner year so far as fruit-growing  in the vicinity of Nelson is concerned.  Already work has been begun on several ranches and a portion of the Bag-  ley ranch, at 13-mile point,"was purchased this week by J. A.

The machinery  will be installed at onco and the plant  will probably be ic operation next  month.  Old-timers will remember Ed. Mc-  Cardia, who seven or eight years ago  sold papers in Nelson. "Mac" was an  exceedingly clever boy and very popular with his customers. Sinco leaving  here, over six years ago, he has travelled all over the European continent  and visited many Asiatic ports. He is  now in Spokane and likely to turn up  in Nelson any day.  Geo. W. Hughes is shipping 1200  tons of zinc from the Kaslo sampler.  The shipment is consigned to Gas,  Kansas. It is understood .-/that Mr.  Hughes will follow this shipment by  others as soon as the ore is taken out  of the. mine, having made a contract  by which he can ship steadily to the  smelter. The Lucky Jim mine is  proving to be a bonanza for its owners.  Tlie Slocan Drill reports that ore-  hauling from' the mines has become a  difficult task, a transfer from sleighs to  wagons being necessary. Accordingly  the'week's > i'.i it fell away tb 44 tons.  The Ottawa sent out a car tb Nelson  and the Black Prince one to Trail. W.  Koch has given up the^ hauling from  the latter mine, his place being taken  by Kennedy & "Cameron.

All over the Lardeau country everything looks good for the coming season. Arrangements are being made,  by many companies for the introduction of machinery, and we have every.  reason to believe tbat it will be a season of big work and good results! says  the Lardeau Mining Review.  At Camborne, the Eva people are  making arrangements for the installation of a compressor plant. The last  clean-up of this property was cloWjto  $3,000. The Elwood Tin Workers Co. .  are also installing a compressor plant.  Work on the sawmill aud development is now being pushed vigorously.  The Mammoth group- owners are put-  ting up a development fund of HO.OCO  with-which to put the property in.  shape for economical working. One  hundred tons of concentrates have  been sacked and will be shipped from  the Oyster Group to the Trail smelter.  Itis the intention of the owners of  this property to double-their mill capacity this spring.-  The Triune people will put on 50"  men early-in the season and push  work vigorously. While the Silver  Cup has shut down at present, it is  only for a few weeks, until the danger of snowslidcs is over. At the Net-_.  tie L. development work is being  pushed by a big crew of men. In a  few weeks work will be started on the  big tunnel scheme. We understand  all thc stock has been taken up, which  provides ample capital for the working  of ths big proposition. Tlie Mohican  crew are driving a long tunnel, which  will be completed by the first of June  The Lncky Boy is showing   tip better  than ever, aud the working staff increased as the ground is being opened  up. So far an average of a car of ore.a  month is being taken out, averaging  $150 per ton. It might be said.in connection with this property that only  the ore met with in course of development is being taken out. ��� The Horse  Shoe is proving a good thing for the  lessee, and a good shipment will be  made as soon as navigation opens.  At Poplar things are brightening up.  Barney Crilley is authority for the  statement that a 40-stamp mill will be  put in for the Lucky Jack aud Swede  groups early in the spring, which will  make these famous properties big producers. Active development Is planned  for the Pluto, Marcus and Gilbert  group, Calumet and Heckla, Broken  Hill group and numerous others. The  Broken Hill Co. have the erection of a  mill at Rapid Creek under consideration, which will greatly facilitate the  operation of numerous other good properties iu the immediate neighborhood.  The bonding of the Winslow by  Bruce White is also |going to prove a  factor iu the success of the district. A  large amount of work has been done  on the Silver Plate, which has shown  up well, during the winter. Over the  divide, the Consolidated Co., according  to latest advices, are preparing to go  to work with a large force on the Old  Gold, Primrose and Treadwell.  The promoters of the recently incorporated Reward Mining and Smelting  Co., who are driving the long 'tunnel,  are expected to arrive in Ferguson  about the 15th.  iH'jrJ THE NELSON ECONOMIST  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  Published every Saturday afteruonn at  VERSON- STKRET. _N'ET.SOST.

From the territories it is reported  .that the farmers are making preparations for the work that is usually  done a month later.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has been  forced to moderate his autonomy  bill so far as it has any bearing on  the establishment of Separate  schools in the new Provinces. The  resignation 'of Clifford' Sifton seems  to have had beneficial results.  The Vernon News is one of the  most enterprising weekly newspap  ers published in the interior. Tne  News h^s published several special  editions in the past, and now proposes to print a 6o-page finely il  lllstrated number tor the Dominion  Fair.           " Some idea of the increasing interest in fruitgrowing can be  formed from the reports of the nursery men that their sales this season  are double what they.were this  time 'last year. Every man who  owns a lot seems desirous of raising  his own fruit, and when the trees  already set out bear their fruit,  Nelson and vicinity will possess an  additional attraction for tourists.

Manager  It is really amusing to watch the  antics ofthe opposition press in this  province. Every one of the Grit  editors know that up to the date of  ihe McBride administration the  Province had been running into  debt and everyone was aware that  this had to stop sometime. Premier  McBride has stopped it even though  the means seemed drastic, and taxes  were increased. But~at every turn  the Liberal editors cry out���for  something better to say. It is an  absolute certainty that a Liberal administration would have found it  needful to do almost the sanie as  has Mr. McBride, but of course,  lhat would be a different story.���  Phoenix Pioneer.  Last week Houston gave a strik  ing example of the methods he pursues. For two weeks he had  worked against the smelter eight-  hour bill, and even half an hour before the vole came he was b eard to  say that he would not support it.  But, unfortunately, the Premier, in  joining in the.debate on the measure, adopted the same attitude. This  was too much for John Houston.  "Be on tbe same side of such a debatable question as Hon. Richard  McBride_? Never !."    The member  for Nel3on rose in his p'ace and  argued dramatically in favor of the  bill introduced by the member for  Nanaimo ; then he sat down and,  voted for it.���Vancouver World.  It becomes, therefore, an interesting question as to whether' Mr.  Templeman will receive what is unquestionably his due as the member  of the Cabinet representing Western  Canada. Is he again to be passed  over ? to be compelled tp see others,  ���perhaps,- outside the Cabinet, put  in possession of the office that  ��houId be his ? The excuses of-  fe icd for such treatment on past  occasions, will not suffice now to  reconcile the people of Western  Canada to further, refusal to recognize their claims, even if Mr. Templeman is willing to turn the other  cheek to tbe smiter. We admit  that on many grounds it is desirable  that the Minister of the Interior  should be a member of the House  of Commons. But that should not  be an obstacle to Mr. Templeman's  appointment. It. will be easy to  get him a seat for one of the cou-  stituences in British Columbia.  Within a few days we shall fee  what is the treatment that is to be  given Western Canada on this occasion.���News-Advertiser.  Corner Mill and 'csephine Sts.

AX O'RELti never neglects to  say a good word for the ladlai  whenever opportunity serve*  At the same time, he does nol  shut his eyes to their faults,  but Is only "a little blind," as witnea.'  what he says about "The Discontented  Woman":  "We all know that woman, not un-s  kind, not ^exactly sour, .but sad, depressed and depressing, who ls well  off and might enjoy life, but who looks  as if there was not one pleasure left^in  the world to make It worth living ln.  "She may feel ever so well, she will  never cpnfess-It. She hates to be told  that she looks well. She thinks you are  wanting In sympathy. She loves to t>e  pitied, and has no objection to being  called 'Poor Mrs. A.!* Yet she ls very  susceptible, and resents any attentions  that are paid to other "people In' her  'presence. She was jealous of her sisters when a girl; now she ls jealous o��  her children, Jealous of the laales who  call, jealous of her husband's' secretary  or typewriter. She has no reason for  - being jealous, she knows -it, but lt ls a  habit, and she likes to keep her hand at  it.  "She Is fond of calling on sick people,  and. as she has had every mortal dts-  ease or Indisposition you care to name,  she gives the people whom she visits  her own experience of their disease,  and they have to listen to all the minute details of the sufferings she had lo  go through. She hopes that you will,  get better.  "Meanwhile she tells you of all the  people she knows who have died of the  disease with which you are afflicted,  but reassures you by stating that some  people have been known to recover.  "She Is the town-citer of bad news.  If there ls a sad event of which she  hears early, she Immediately orders a  ^carriage and goes on a round of visits,  to announce lt. "When her friends see  her arrive unexpectedly they look at  each other and say, 'We shall hear  some bad news.'*  -. "She is a prophet of ill-omen.

Something more than a warm hearl  and an open hand ls needed in dispensing charity. _ A Boston woman whe  wanted to be generous found this to ba  true in at least one case, related in the  "Youth's  Companion.".  She had been giving to a poor family,  consisting of a mother and three grown  daughters, a regular allowance of six  dollars a mveek until the daughters  should  And   employment.  The eldest daughlor called at the-'  house every Saturday to receive this  allowance. One week she appeared on  Thursday, and wanted to know if it  would be "quite convenient" for her  benefactress to advance the money that  day instead of waiting until Saturday.  "We are out of fuel and flour, and  the man will call this evening for the  weekly rent, andjw^haven^t_a^pennyi_to  "give "him," she said.  "How does it happen that you are ln  this condition this week, when the six  dollars I have been giving you ha3  sufficed to pay your weekly expenses in  the past?"  "Well, I'll tell you," replied the young'  woman, frankly and calmly.   "Mamma "  was   down   town   yesterday,   and   she  came  across such  a  genuine   bargain  In kid gloves that'she felt that it would  be'almost wicked not to take advantage  of it, so she got'each ot us girls and  herself a pair.    They're regular   two-  dollar gloves marked down to seventy-  nine cents a pair,  and mamma didn't >  know  when   she'd  ever  have   another  chance to save four dollars and eighty-  four cents on four.pairs of gloves, so  she got -them,   and  who  could   bi��m��  her?"

The Monk's Knowledge" of  Women. .  err N interesting story comes from tlia  I I 'French Alps ot Dauphiny re/at-  Jl ing the futile efforts of the Princess of Croy, who desired to enter the monastery of the Grande Char-  .-treuse, a habitation'from-Which women  visitors are.rlgldly excluded.  The story runs that the Princess  dressed herself In hoy's, clothes and accompanied her _iu_ban'_ to the Institution. The gates'were'opened to them,  ,tt��d the Prince sent his card to the  father auperior, with a line to the effect that he -was accompanied hy a  ,_rlend.  - Just as they wero about to make the  round of the. building; the word was received that'the father would like to sea  the Prince and "his friend." Going upstairs* they were received by the smiling monk, who cordially Invited them  . to join him in an appetizing lunchton.  The Princess endeavored lo make tha  Ibest of the situation, but she was not  put any the .jnore at her ease by the  fact that the monk kept gazirg sharply  .at her. -  At last he exclaimed suddenly:  "Catch it, young man!" at the sam��  time throwing at her a large pear. The  Princess was ;,' startled, and, thrown  completely off. her guard, made a motion to grab up her skirt, the absence ot  ".which she overlooked in her confusion.  Then the father stopped smiling and  Bald with great gravity:  "I beg your pardon, madam, but ladies are not allowed in the monastery.  I must ask you to wait outside'until  the Prince-has-finished, his Inspection."  And outside she had to go. the rev-  - erend father bowing her from the room  .with most elaborate politeness.

In   the County  Down, iSt. Put lick converted another  chief, Dicher, who bestowed upon him  the   first   Christian   church   that   St  Patrick ever possessed.      Bt.   Patricl.  thenset cut to Tara, in the County  Meath, which at that period  was tho^  ��.cutral meeting place for all the tribes  of Ireland.     There he preached to thc  King of Tara, Lieoglmire, where Patrick  is said to have'first used the shamrock  to illustrate tho Trinity.    Thence he  proceeded   to   Connaught, an   far  as  (.roagh-Patrick in   Mayo,  to  Ulster,  and as far as Casiiel in the south.   His  mission was eminently successful. According  to the accou nts of his Irish  biographer-, he   fogndet. 305 churches  and liiptist'd  with his  own hands 12,-  000 pel son?,     lie is said also to have  consecrated   460  bit-hops,  ordained a  vast  number of priests and   to .have  blessed very many monks aud nuns.  He died at Saul, the spot which Dicher  had given him on his first arrival, and  was hurried at Downpatrick' where his  relics were   preserved    down   to  the  period of the Itefoinia'ion.     The date  of his death is disputed, the Bolaiidist.  placing it at 400, while Usslier holds it  .to have been 49'J.     The only certainly  authentic literary remains of St. Patrick are his "Confession" and a letter,  both of very rude Latinity, hut of much  historical interest.
