" And so there .  have been more members of the com-1  plex British  race who  have  been   pi-'  oneers, discoverers, soldiers of fortune,  and adventurers than  any other.     It!  may also be taid  that the-majority of  of tramps in the world  claim  English,  as their native tongue.

Knight-errantry was not the  worst outcome ofthe feudal chivalry of  the middle ages.  I knew'a man once, a grave, middle-  aged, seemly-living gentleman, married and blessed with a decorous family,  in whom the latent I3o!ieiiiianism  which is "said to exist in every son of  Adam would burst forth whenever a  fire occurred in the little Onlatio town  where he lived. It wa�� a marvel for  years how an otherwise self respecting  and respected citizen should, thrmmh-  the excitement of a local fire, go on a  prolonged debauch. At last the explanation was given.

It wus a case of  reversion to type or ancestry when the  lire-gong sounded. How very easily a  white man of littlo strengtli of character can assimilate with the Indian;  and how difficult it is to civilize the  red man. It is a case of reversion.  Civilization as we understand it is,  after all, modern, and it is not surprising that scattered amongst us are meu  to whom the conventionalities and restraints of civilization are irksome  bonds.  Scratch a Russian and' you will find  a Tarta'-, and touch a particular chord  in any man's nature and he is as much  the natural man as his savage forefathers. -    -  If I may become distinctly personal  for a moment; I will confess that never  can a Highland regiment swing past  in the garb of old Gaul to a stirring  marclr skirled from the warpipes, without my heart beating tumultuously  and the tears streaming down my  cheeks. I may laugh and scoff at it  and feel ridiculous, but I have little  doubt that it is all due to a barelegged  ancestor who followed with battle-axe  and bull-hide shield, his clan down  from the Highland hill, behind Bonnie  Piinee ChR_.He-.to fight'for the lost  cause of the kingly.Stuarts.

While  the evidence at the coroner's inquest  was not conclusive ou the point, there  are yet many people who have readied  the conclusion tliat the Grand View  Hotel was little better than a fire trap,  and that all reasonable precautious  against loss of life under tlie circumstances had not been taken is fully  borne out by the death of the Italian  and the -serious injuries received by  several others"who were in the building at the time i>f the tire. And the  Grand View Hotel wus not particularly-  conspicuous in its lack of protection  against fire; there are half-a-dozen  other places in Nelson that are equally  as unprepared to resist serious loss to  life and property iu the ease uf conflagration as the instance now under consideration. How to prevent recurrences of appalling calaraitres of this  character U tbe problem tbat now confronts tbe city fathers. Are tbey equal  to tbe occasion, or will.tbe necessaiy  changes have to be carried out by recourse to the courts of law? There  can be no fault found with the work of  the firemen at this conflagration. The  chief bandied his men with intelligence, and. they iu turn evinced  no disposition to shirk- their  duty. In every respect they preserved  the best traditions of firemen the world  over. - At the risk ��/_.their own lives  tbey'ieacuod.several poor, fellows from  the burning building.  ment.or to jusiify the city council in  overlooking this splendid opportunity  of rewarding special deeds of bravery,  even if necessary going to tlie extent  of utriking off a distinguished service] the house of the deceased for months  order medal.  1  Some one has suggested that a special paragraph should be devoted to  the brilliancy of the equestrian exhibition given by Mayor Houston's driver  on the occasion of the Grand View Hotel fire. While there are various versions of the circumstances in which  the actual incident is enveloped, each  one only corroborates-the other that it  was u daring act, and has never been  equalled outside of a circus tent. The  driver himself is very modest, and  positively refuses to discuss his heroic leap, hut tbe public is not thus to  _bejlcpriyed__pf__its__i_iiali_ena_b_!e an_d_he-  reditary right to worship at.the shrine  ola hero. In this connection, it in  gratifying to observe that the  Nelson Tribune, with commendable desire to accord honor only to  whom honoris due, is foremost iu extolling the virtues and deeds and virtues of this new idol, so that noun-  worthy head shall wear the laurel  wreath. . As was before remarked,  Mayor Houston's driver is very  reticent ns to what really did  occur, so iu discussing the subject, one  lias to resort to conjecture aud common  report. It is understood that thc chief  uf tlie Ure department lias reported  Uie mutter to the chairman of the fire,  water und light committee, but that  gentleman, posssbly with thc hope  of shielding tlie driver from the  vulgar curiosity of the mob, or  desiring as little notoriety ns possible for his own part in supplying the  Nelson fire brigade with sueh an accomplished driver, modestly suggests  that the report Is of little public concern, and will not be made known  until the next meeting of the council.  This being the case, little further need  be said on tlie subject, any more than  and tomatoes. All the principle fruit  growingdistri ets of the Province were to urge upon the council tlie justice of  represented including Kelowna, Peach- special recognition of the services of  land, SuramerLmd, lvimlonp-t, Vic- ; the man who iias done so much to  toiia, Chilliwack, Hammond, Mt. i bring fame to tha Nelson fire brigade.

At Vancouver, last Thursday, Mr.  Wade, acting" for Mr. Houston, asked  for adjournment to examine before the  r gistrar at Nelson on tbe affidavits filed  by tbe plaiutiff. "Tliis time was granted  by Mr. Justice Duff. There appears to  be a belief in certain quarters that the  Coulter case is not of great importance,  but those who understand all the circumstances take a very different view  of the matter. It is not so much a  question whether Sam Coulter retains  bis position as driver of the fire department, as whether Mayor Houston  can negative the authority of the majority. The majority of tlie council declare that the Municipal Clauses Act  confers upon them certain powers;  Mayor Houston claims that there is no  limit to his powers. Tbe Coulter case  is merely a test case; if Mayor-Houston can thwart the will of the majority,  there will be no further need of electing councillors, and it is a decision on  this point that Js sought from the  court. If Mayor Houston is acting  within his rights, under the powers  given liim by_the Municipal Clauses  Act, the aldermen may resign and devote the time tbey are now giving to  municipal matters to their own private affairs.   ���'       -���'��� ���*"  quest tbat should certainly strengthen  a theory of accidental death. -"It in  now known tbat tbe revolver which  caused the death had been lyiugaround  Viewed from every standpoint, the  decision of Mr. Justice Irving in the  injunction proceedings brought by tbe  West' Kootenay Power & Light Company against the city wasa disappointment. Many who had listened to the  evidence were convinced that the  power company had not established its  case, but the judge evidently thought  otherwise. The result is to be deplored  in many ways : not only will the cily  have to foot a big bili in the way of  legal expenses, but there will also be  considerable delay in fulfilling the contract. It was unfortunate that the  matter wasnot,settled-before it-ever  went into court, which it is believed,  could have been done, had conciliatory  methods been adopted. This opinion  is not confined to a few citizens either.  Luxuries sometimes come very high,  but we must have tbem. Nelson is  certainly paying high for tbe luxury of  a mayor whose' ideas must of necessity  be right, because if not his own originally they are appropriated and  launched as his own. We are enjoying a very higli assessment rate this  year, but it will be higher before il becomes 1 iwer. Nextyear, it is generally  conceded, will see an immense reduction in tlie assessed values of real  estate with a corresponding increase in  the rate. With a few more luxuries in  the way of lawsuits the city will be in  bad shape, and it will not surprise us  in tbe least if the rate rises to anywhere  between 40 mills and 50 mills for.the  year 1906.  The death of J. H. Nolan caused  universal sorrow. There are very few  men iu Nelson who car. boast of a  greater number of warm friends than  tlie deceased, and his sudden end came  as a shock to all. Particularly will his  untimely departure be felt by those  who have been intimately associated  with him for jears. While many circumstances surrounding his death  would seem to indicate self-destruction,  and tbe^coroner's jury rendered a verdict to that effect on the evidence before them, there have, been a number  of little things disclosed since the in-  and uo one knew it was loaded. Just  a few weeks ago, in a playful mood a  kodak picture of someone pointing the  revolver at Mr. Nolan's hfad was  taken and no one in tlie house at that  time bad the least idea tbat tiiere was  a cartridge in the weapon, and least of  all Mr. Nolan or the person who  pointed the revolver at him. The  cartridge in tbe weapon must have remained there for years, and was probably long since forgotten. It is believed by many now, that the revolver  had been lying on the stand, and that  Mr. Nolan when he arose picked  it up, and while carelessly examining  it pulled the trigger. The disposition  of tbe deceased was one that would not  bear out the theory of suicide; on the  contrary, he was a mau who took a  rosy view of life.  In another column reference is  made to the decision of Mr  Justice Duff with regard to '�� Foreshore Rights." Tbe comment referred to is from the Victoria  Colonist, aud below ls a further reference by tbat paper to tbe same question :  "Tbe question raised in the decision  of Hon. Mr. Justice Duff, to which reference was made yesterday, is- one of  the most important possible to imagine  in connection with tlie rights of the  province. So far as the Land Act is  concerned there is no doubt that the  Chief Com missioner of Lands and  'Works has.the"r.rightr.to"1-issue,leases to.  the foreshore. That is settled by the  amendment of 1901, whereby.the Minister-has the power to act so far as the  j urisdiction of the province extends.  How far that jurisdiction extends is tbe  crux of the question., If the province  under the Land Act "cannot go farther  than low water then the right of the  province to issue leases for traps may  be fairly questioned. So far as the  fishery legislation of British Columbia  is concerned it has= never been proclaimed, and consequently whatever  rights the province has cannot be exercised, because proclamatiou has uot  yet taken place as required. . We are,  .therefor_e,_face_to_face_'with the problem  ofthe rights we have under the Land  Act.- The opinion was expressed yesterday that tho Land Act gave the  province authority over realty whether  under the sea or on land. Here the  whole question lies. The rights of the  Dominion government in rt-spect to  harbors obtrude themselves, as well as  MESSENGERS  OF DEATH  The Nerves Give Warning ot  Approaching Dissolution.  A remarkable case of a dream warning was that of Mr. Henry Gay, of  Abertillery,.Monmouthshire, who on  February 19; 1901, had a vivid dream,  in which he declared he wus standing  with a "radjant presence" in a shining  cornfield.-/VjJis companion gathered  four ripe eai^ 'V^Am and handed them  to him with the, '"<V\s, "These are all  for thee." Mr. Gtl^aij.-odiately told  Rev. D. Collier, of Abert.'fiery, of his  strange dream, and said he was convinced that he had four more years to  live, a conviction, which no argument  could shake. Exactly four years later,  on February 19, 1905, Mr- Gay died.  The late Lady Tweedmouth, shortly  before she died, had a strong conviction that the. end was near," as the following story proves : At the lust dinner at which her ladyship was a guest  in London she was taken in by Lord  Rosebery, and during tbe meal eclipsed  even hei self by the brilliance of ber  conversation. At the close of the evening sbe placed ber band in tbat of  Lord Rosebery, and said, without a  quaver in "her voice : "Good-by, Rosebery."  "Good-night, yon mean," replied the  Earl.  "No, it is good-by. This is ray last  dinnerin.town. I am now going home  to Scotland to die."  Two curious cases of this kind were  reported recently from Kent and  Gloucestershire. In one, Mrs. Cook,  of New Romney, Kent, lh saying  ."good-by"-to"1 some friends on*. Boxing  Day, told them' that she would die on  the following day, and within twenty-  four hours she was foand dead iu bed,  having passed away in her sleep.  In the other case Martha VVigget,  living at Cutsdean, Gloucestershire,  while taking tea with a lodger, remarked that that would be her last  meal, although to all appearance she  was iu excellent health all the time.  Less than an hour later, while at a  neighbor's house, she complained ofa  choking sensation, lapsed into unconsciousness, and died without speaking  again.  About a year ago a Mr. Legare of St.  Eu3tacbe,-near���Quebec,- startled-his  wife by saying ; "I am going to die  to-night, but you must not trouble  yourself about it. I am going to arrange everything in such a manner as  to give you as little trouble as possible."  Mme. Legare naturally thought that  her husband, who appeared to be in  perfect health, was joking; but, true  to his word; he began to arrange  liis  the peculiar conditions created   by the  sea.   Assuming that the Crown or the j affairs, made all the necessary prepar  province has the right to administer! ations for his funeral, and, when  the  the lands under the sea does the Laud  Aet upply? Can the province grant  exclusive rights to tlie holders of trap  leases ? There aro no decisions to guide  the Attorney-General in the premises,  and it seems inevitable that  the case  last detail had beeu concluded, suddenly expired.  Prof. Palmer, befoie he started on  his ill-fated expedition to win over the  Sinai tribos in 1881, had a strong conviction  that he  would  never return.  will be carried to the Privy Council in   One day, when   he was sitting in the  the end.

"No, I know  its good-by," he said, in farewell to one  of his oldest fi lends; "I shan't *ee  you again." Maj. Childe was equally  certain that be was going lo bis death;  and Col. Stopford, when Lidding one  of his relatives farewell, said, "I shall  never come back again. Tbe Boers  are excellent shots, and i shall make a  good target."  Dr. John Hunter, tbe famous eighteenth-century physiologist and. surgeon, once said : "We sometimes feel  within ourselves that we shall not  live, for the living powers become  weak nnd the nerves communicate tlie  intelligence to the brain;" and the  truth of his statement was illustrated  by his own end. On leaving home one  day he declared tbat if a discussion  which he was expecting at the hospital  took an angry turn it would kill hiin.  The dispute led to an exchange of hot  words, and the great doctor expired  within the hospital walls.  CUTE ANIMAL   -.  ACTOKS  With Cozad's Dog, Pony, Monkey and Goat Circus.     .  An entire performance given by animal actors alone Is indeed a genuine  and pleasing novelty and one tbat baa"  always interested loverj . of dumb  brutes. Cozad's California Dog.Poiiy,  Monkey and Goat Circus which .will  exhibit at Nelson, Monday, August 21,  has the most remarkable collection of  performing pets ever exhibited in'this  country. These animal actors do everything that humau performers accomplish. They appear -in comedies and  dramas that eloquently tell tlieir own  story without works. The acrobatic  members perform somersaults, walk  the tight rope, dive from great heights  to a net, ride races upon each other's  backs, are clothed in miniature garments aud ape the manners of their  human companions and among them  are the most comical clown comedians  who keep the audience in a continual  uproar of laughter by their absurdly  grotesque sense of humor. There are  over three hundred perfoi mi ng Shetland ponies, educated dogs, acrobatic  monkeys and riding goats with tbe  Cozad Show aud tbe deep intelligence  shown by these cleverscholars is vastly  interesting, outertaiuing_ttnd-of_more_  than passing educational value. This  will be the ouly show of its nuture to  exhibit here this season so advantage  should be taken of that fact. Cozad's  California Animai Circus travel in  tbeir own train and exhibit under their,  own huge tents. The prices are  very moderate, so that all children  may attend Two performances will  be given daily and at their conclusion,  the little ones will be given free rides  the Shetland ponies and will be personally introduced to the performing-  pets.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  After the exhibition of Mr. lions-  ton's driver last Thursday morning  the chariot, races at the Nelson Fair  will seem tame and stale.  Tbe circus is the place for the  man who jumps from a wagon while  tbe horses are runitig at full speed.  Certainly it is not on a fire brigade.  Firemen, the world over are jealous of their honor, and Nelson supplies almost the first instance of a  fireman who failed in upholding the  traditions of his calling.  A vigorous campaign is being  ���waged in Western Ontario papers  against horse racing as a biecder of  robberies and-murders. "The protracted race meet just closed at Detroit can," sa3*s the Gait R->forme*-,  "be held directlyresponsib'e for the  brutal murder which took place in  that city on Friday e< etiing. It is  all'too true tbat the racing events  both in Canada and across the  border are becoming more and  more the resort of adventurers' who  when they lose heavily at the races,  will stop at nothing to secure the  money to bet again."  hinds of the Ciiio' Commissioner;  and it would follow that, if the pro  vince possesses territorial right:-  over the land under the sea withir.  lh?

How  ever, tlie jurisdiction oi tiie province  b.yoiid low water in a disputed  point, upon which no author'tative  decision has been given. Mr.  Klliott argued tliat lhe provincial  government's jurisdiction extended  to neutral waters, while it is understood the Dominion government  hold that it extends as far as low  water ciilv. The contention is not  by any means a new one, and it is  somewhat surprising tbat a case has  not yet gone lo the judicial committee of the Privy Council for adjudication. Tlie present litigation  will no "doubt lead lo a refeience  through the courts, of apj-cal. for final settlement.

Experienced sheep raisers from  "Oregon and Washington express  the opinion that the conditions prevailing in the Kootenays are peculiarly adapted for sheep grazing.  One well-known sheep raiser is so  convinced of this, lhat he is making  arrangements with NIr. Gray, the  owtier of a ranch up the lake, to  place 4,000 or 5.000 sheep on his  range, within a few weeks. - Wiih  steady improvement in mining con-  ditions, a rapidly  developing  fruit  industry, and now sheep-rais ng,  the diversified resources of the  Kootenays must become apparent to  all, and result in a largely increased  population within the next few  years.  While-the annuity for ex-cabinet  ministers of five years' standing  facilitates the retirement of undesirables after that term of service, it  may operate quite as readily in the  opposite dinclicn in tbe case of  cabinet misfits whose incapacity,  e'e , may-be discovered before they!  have served the qtiiqneiiniai period.  In such cses the premier will be  appealed to put up with" the in-  capables liil they have qualified for  the" "pension, *:nd the country wiil  suffer "meanwhile.- OttauT. Citizen.  .i.s.

In this con  Jiectioti, two points arise, says the  Victoria .Colonist. One, , the  authority of the Chief Commissioner  of Lands and Wotks to issue leases,  it being pointed out that under sec  tion 41 of the Land Act Amendment Act of_ 1S99 such authority  was vested in the Lieutenant-Governor iu-Council ; the 'other."'.the  iurisdiction of the Province over  land under the sea below low-water  mark. In regard tothe first thero  seems to be a misapprehension. It  is true that in 1S99 the power ot  granting leases as referred to,was  transferred from the Chief Commissioner* of Lands and \*�� orks to  the Lieuteiu nl-Goverrior-in-Ccun  cil, aud such leases, therefore, required the authority of an irder-in  council to render them valid ; but  jn it.Oi the sectio 1 in.que��!i.<ji w.s  iSf.taiftl aud again  place.]  in the  It bas been said in disparagement of . Sir Wilfrid Laurier tbat  though he ^is a great 01a or and  a natural politician, he is not a  good business man. Il will be  necessary to revise tbis opinion, for  not even' one of the Wall Street jugglers with finance could bave put  through .a neater deal than that  which is arranged for. Sir Wilfrid's  benefit hi 'the salary'grab bill- recently put through ' by the Dominion . parliament. It is a case of  'heads. I win, tails you lose." Sir  Wilfiid ha*" a very fine thing of ii  as leader of the government, but if  Iii* party were to be defeated in the  -house��� ne>:t-sesMn:i_and_hfi_d_tp eo__  into opposition, Sir Wilfrid would  fall iu for a better thing financially  than he has now. As premier Sir  Wilfiid's salary is "512 ooo and his  indemity as a member of parliament  is $2,500 ; total $14,500 a year. As  leader of the opposition he would  rective $5,ooo on account.of pension  a. an ex-cabinet minister. $7,000 as  leader of the opposition and $2,500  as indemnity, or a totsl or $15,500  ���$[,qoo more than be receives in  his present position. On the other  hand, Mr. Borden, if he  became premier would get a  thousand dollars a year less than  Sir Wilfrid would receive as leader  of the opposition.-���Sarnia' Can  adiair  FACTS AND FIGURES.

Tlio citizen of Vienna" who dcreB  not .wish to l)s out of pocket must  keep early hours, for after ten  o'clock he Is taxed on entering hia  own house, or, for the matter of that,  any house. The "sperr_elcl," or cloor-  openingr tax, is peculiar to Vienna, aa  the London. "Express" .explains. The  entire population of that city, num-  .'tiering- nearly two millions, .are practically imprisoned in their houses from  ten o'clock in the evening until six  lie next morning. They can go in or  *:ut only by paying <a.t least four cents  to the Janitor or "house-master," as  iJio is called. x        ,  Vienna is built on the "flat" or apartment-house plan. Millionaires and  working people alike live in houses of  this description. The houses "are large,  having five or six lioors, with four flats  __��? ___����J"__.__X_.U__is._____ unu,sual__to_  find a hundred persons Jiving under  one roof. There ls one common entrance from the streat, and after ten  o'clock at night this door Is bolted and  barred. From ten until twelve all who  go in or out must pay four cents. After twelve the charge is doubled.  The tax must be paid every time one  passes through .the doorway, without  exception. If a man has occasion to  go In and out half a clozen times, he  must pay every time. Ono who has  dined with a friend must, if he stay  late, pay .four cents to get out of-his'  friend's 'house,' and four- more to get  into his own. ��� A telegram in the night  necessitates the payment of the tax  to.fore the boy can enter. .  The house-master also collects and  keeps duplicate copies of the forms on  which every individual hi tlie house  must report to the police his age,  ���birthplace and roligion, his exact occupation, ancl other personal details  which the Austrian authorities insist  upon knowing. Nor does the power of  this Important personage end even  here. From the little guard-room  which he occupies at the foot of the  stairs he sees every one who goes In  or out. He ascertains with amazing  accuracy the amount of each tenant's  Income, the.events of his family life,  and the character of his visitors, Ills  far.reaching power enables him to terrorize every servant'in the house into  entering .his intelligence department,  anc} thus lie spies on the innermost  life of %he subjects in .his five-storey  ktngdorp.: -    .-������..

A reprimand for flor  laying letter, would be. construed Into  an Insult, and the Englishman deemed  it wise to'move to other quarters.
