NELSON, B. C, SATUBDAY, JULY 11, 19C3.  NUMBEK^*  Unclaimed in the Several  C. Chartered Banks.  B.  DEPOSITORS   NEGLIGENT  Or Unaware of the Amounts Stand.  ing to Their Credit, Which Might  be Used Profitably.  In a recent article we referred to  the substantial share contributed  by British Columbia depositors to  the money lying unclaimed in  the several chartered banks, and to  which the law requires that a return Bhall be published as a Do*  minion blue book whenever five  years have elapBed without a transaction in connection with the account. The money then becomes  known as the "unclaimed balance."  Tbe part of the return to which we  gave particular attention in the article referred to, was the report of  deposits in the old Bank of British  Columbia, now the Canadian Bank  of Commerce. There are very, substantial Bums unclaimed by Pacific  Coast depositors in the Bank of  Montreal and the Bank of British  North America, and . to call attention to the chief of these is tbe purpose of this writing, in which wo  will not name accounts of less than  $25 unless there is some special interest attaching to them...  New Westminster figures conspicuously in the liet supplied by  the Bank of Montreal, and in mentioning the accounts we disclaim  any responsibility for the impression that the owners cannot be  found. We tell the tale simply aB  it is told to us by the bluebook ;  and taking their names in their order we find that Beaton & Pyke  have left unclaimed $63.45 since  1892, the Royal City Building Society $69.45 since 1893, A. Wilson  $29.90 since 1894, MrB. B. O'Neill  $236.80 and F. E. Stratton $52.45,  Binco 1896. Joseph Oliver of Lad-  ner put in $150 at New Westminster in 1895, and has qualified for  u place on tho roll. A. Donohueof  Rock Creek has left $178.84 unclaimed nt Vernon since 1895.  Tho Vancouvor agency haa beon  moro than usually prolific of stagnant accounts. In thoir ordor, wo  find J. Hfvrdmont going without  $74 for thirloon years; whilo tho  ansignco of 0. C. Marrell has lot  $29.17 Ho idlo sinoo 1892. John  Howcroft chipped in  two Bums of  grand balance is not explained, but  the record shows as yet unclaimed  ]$i00 put in afc Vancouver in 1888,  $150 in 1889, $100 in 1890, $100 in  March, 1891, and $150 in August of  the same year; and after a long silence for him $149 in January, 1895,  and $200 the succeeding June, since  which date the account has  been  undisturbed.     Other British Columbia depositors include J. P. Stafford of* Golden, who put in $450 at  Calgaiy  in   1896; J. B.  Chantrell,  whoBe $54.65 has been unclaimed  at Victoria since 1896; and Frank  Henry, Victoria, $72.27 eince 1895.  Annie Nelson of Kamloops is down  for having left $1000 unclaimed at  Belleville since 1897; but a solitary  marginal note says "sinceclaimed."  The Bank of British North America  reports  $80.67   as  left by J.  Sheepshanks of New Westminster,  in   Victoria, 1867,  and  unclaimed  for thirty-six year?.     Mrs. Minnie  Mcintosh," giving this city as her  address, on  March  30, 1897, made  two deposits of $41 and$39respectively at Vancouver, where they have  since remained undisturbed.     August Schroder, Mount Lehman, put  in $150and Mrs. Emma Menton of  Harrison River $200, at Vancouver  in 1897.   F. W. Kelly of Slocan has  had an even$50 coming to him since  the same year.    Victoria depositors  whose balances   there  remain  unclaimed   include W. Beck, $1,330.-  67; 1874; J. C. L. K.  Bruce,  who  may have got mixed on his initials  but anyhow  has not disturbed his  $31.41 for seventeen years; Samuel  Hocking, $500 at rest for thirty-one  years; and    Leon    Mar,   opposite  whose name and claim for $200  since 1S78 is the note "supposed to  have been "drowned."     Louis.Gold  of Vale has left $43.95 unclaimed  al Victoria since  1881; and since  1884 there h;\s been an undisturbed  balance of $��3.14  for the Staltho  Chuck Flume Mining Co. (per W.  Teague and  H. A.  Powers), Yale.  Patrick O'Connor, of Burrard Inlet  left $2,000 at Victoria in 1889, and  a marginal note eaya of him "whereabouts unknown."  Vancouver depositors not claiming their balance in the Bank of  B. N. A. include Wm. Bryce, $250,  1890 ; Chas. E. Lart (now dead),  $40, 1895 ; W. Johnson, $95.85 ;  H. Sharp, $35; Margaret Little,  $105 ; all since 1895 ; Flora Munroe, $55, 1896 ; Joseph MoPhoreoD,  $400 ; Wm. Serdlemun, 100 ; Margaret Little, $60 ; Burton F. Dunn,  $500 ; and Georgo Dalzell, $200, all  since 1897. In the same yoar  Janet Littlo of Dumphries, Scotland, put in at Vancouvor, $202,  not sinco cluitned.

At the coast very little is being done, the ConBervatives seemingly having eyerything their own  way. The Conservatives are well  satisfied with the government of  which R. McBride is the premier,  and there is no reason to doubt that  whatever the result of the. election  may be, the full strength of the Con-  pervative party in British Columbia will he made manifest when the  ballots are counted. There was  some disposition to kick in certain  -''���'' *, -. ���-'.-���   'A\.>.X   ���..".      : "  quarters, but the premier has sljoivn.  considerable capacity in the way of  harmonizing the warring elements,  and in nearly every instance the  Conservative party of British Columbia is united. There are one or  two exceptions in which certain  men seem determined to create the  the impression that they are bigger  factors than their leaders, but these  individuals will probably be given  to understand that they must take  subordinate positions in the ranks  of the party or re urn to their former  conditions of political waifdora.  Men who have ever been loyal to a  party are not likely to permit them-  selveB to be ridden over roughshod  by others who aro only probationers,  ���the flotsam and jetsam of all parties.

The opinion of mining men everywhere is that the bounty will have  the effect of stimulating the mining  industry throughout the province.  Already mines that have been lying  idle for the last year or so, are preparing to resume operations, andin  many districts" the available Bupply  of men is not equal to the demand.  As one mining man puts it, " of  course the mines that would principally benefit by it were those that  had large bodies of ore with a large  percentage of lead. Taken in conjunction with the activity in zinc it  ought to result in a much larger  production from . the silver-lead  mines of the Kootenays."

East Kootenay, on account of the  quality of the ore, will benefit most  by the bonus, and there everything  points to an immediate revival in  mining. According to a telegram  from Senator Turner to the Cranbrook Herald, the bonus will enable  the Sullivan company to start the  mine immediately and.to complete  the smelter this season.   c;''..  H.'E.'T. Haultain,the well known  mining engineer, is;;convinced that  the bounty will result in" more activity in mining throughput., the  ���province;fandtparticulirlyv should  it be beneficial to East Kootenay.A  r There; is,: however, a feeling in  some quarters that'the.rbonus will  not inspire confidence in^the resources of the country in the same  measure a' duty wouldVhave done.  J. L. Parker -writes on this point :  " Whilst in common with the lead  miners,.I deplore the fact that by  reason of its policj'.the government  refuseB to increase the duty on lead  in ores and in metal, yet I am  pleased to note that it realizes the  fact that the industry must be encouraged, and if we get the bonus,  the waiting for which has almost  turned the mine owners' hair grey,  I will welcomo it, but hot so heartily as I would tho increase of the  lead duties."  One thing however, is certain, tho  bonus will nBsist tholiridufltry, nnd  in addition to tho $2,500,000 bonus  to bo distributed during tho five  years, tho mino-ownora will spend  $10,000,000 moro during tho eamo  poriod than thoy would hnvo dono  undor conditions prevailing during  tho paBt two or threo ycarp.

John Houston is a type of the class who believe   in the efficacy of distracting   attention  from their own misdeeds by accusing others of  practices', which, if all  accounts be   true, Mr.  Houston considers a* Ftricily within the sphere  of the legitimate operation of a i.f-wvj.Hper.  Repeatedly has the Tribune accused Tjik Economist of bartering  its principles  for   a  good  breakfast.     So far, this  paper haa   refrained  from taking advantage of John  Houston's de-  defenceless position,  by.., retorting  in-words  that could not be misunderstood, although the  obligation to do so has been ever present.     It  ���was believed that the methods of the man were  loo apparent  to all to demand  ppecial treatment;  for is it not generally understood that  many  citizens of Nelson instinctively place  their hands in their r/allets when approaching  some of the grafters with whom   John Houston associates and who supply the  sinews of  ���war for  the "carrying on   of  his. operations ?  The statement that  The  Economist   would  change its opinions providing it had free access to the "bar'l," (about up mythical as  the  buried treasure of Capt. Kidd,) alleged to be in  the possession  of  one Fred S'.arkey, is   quite  as ridiculous a  charge   ns   ever    proceeded  from the poisonous lips t f the accuser. ��� If the  time ever comes, when  Thk   Economist  will  "crook the pregnant hii'gep of the knee where  thrift may follow  fawninp," it will not waste  any time investigating the content? of a 'bar'l"  that has been  nny length of  time in the possession of John. Houston  or  his friend Fred  Starkey.     Thk  Economist is a bupinws  proposition, and is not dr j.aidinl for ita (xUltnco  on a gang of dupes, who go forward lo be hltd  ae innocently as lho ix is driven to the shambles.     This paper  is not under obligation to ,  any ono for its existence.   It is a business undertaking, and can afloid lo express tho opinion of its editor. It dnrc6 to fny what it thinly,  and cannot bo imposed upon by tho extravagant clnime of John lloupton's friends on behalf of thoir tyrannical IntU-uiUBter, eomo of  which aro about ns improbable ns the uncorroborated Btnttmont thai ono member of  iho  Inst Logielnluro was so watchful of thu intcrctta  of tho provinco thnt ho slept al) night on tho  steps of Ihe I'mfinmmt buildings to guard the  wealth that was stored in the trom-ury vnultc  !  claim that every appointment made on the recommendation of the member for Nelson district was suggested by Starkey. the skilled po-.  litical  manipulator  from Carman, Manitoba,  and lo  u?e an  expression of 'hat   gentleman  j   himself, "the man what says'* we did uot is an  easy extemporaneous prevaricator.    Again, we  have long admired Starkey's versatility in the  line of changing his opinions and reconciling  seemingly conflicting statements.    Surely, the  m.in   who  can  apply uncomplimentary   epithets lo his leader one day   and the next day  laud the   virtues  of tbat same leader to the  s4:icw, is not a person of   mere common parts!  But our devotion and admiration has not been  restricted by these narrow   limitations.     We  have not yet forgotten the threatening attitude  of Nelson'* foremost citizen  when a Ju.lice of  the Supreme Court of   BrilUh Columbia pre-  sumrd     to    que?! ion    his   ii.terpretalion   of  a matter <f evidencp, and   even now   we shudder as we think of the dire enf-equence? to the  Judge had  Starkey   but   tinmen If d   his   proud  disdainful lips--, and poured f-rib a   torrent  of  in; relive, a weapon in the use of   whirl) he is  so well skilled.

Seme of the Liberal papers are trying to  make capital for their party by printing a telegram sent to Ottawa by James Dunsmuir in  which it was urged againBt the paesage of the  $500 (1 i itihead tax, that it would not be  in the interests of this province and would be  plundering to aggressive labor unions. In  oider to make their point, the Liberals must  show that Jumes Dunsmuir is a Conservative,  and then that the Conservative party must be  held responsible for the utterances of any person belonging to that party. Mr. Dunsmuir  is credited with subscribing generously to the  campaign funds of both Liberals and Conservative?, which would teem to show  lhat he is half Liberal nnd half Conservative.  And wc are very muth mistaken if it waa not  the Liberal half that prompt*d lhe telegram  lo Ottawa. In any event, Liberals have no  moie reason to hold the Comervnlive party re-  f-pont-ihlo for tho Conservative half of Mr.  Dunmiuir than tht Conservatives have to hold  the Liberals responsible for the thought and  nclions of the Liberal half.

Go to sleep tonight and get a good rest.''  "That is just liko a man to talk so.  Go to sleep, indeed! I presume you  would and leave tho house to take caro  of itself, to bo broken into by burglars,  und maybe tho whole family would bo  murdered. If you loved me as you ubc-d  to when wo lir.st wero married, you  would not bo willing to leavo n;e every  evening for tho clubhouse, whilo I worry and fret and get my nerves all unstrung."  "It is necessary that I should attend  to theso things, my dear. Tho country  must bo governed, and its growing  needs require constant watchfulness and  new laws. I don't mean to be out any  moro than I am obliged to. You munt  bo willing to sacrifice a little for tiio  good of your country. .Tust mako up  your mind that you will go to sleep,  and you won't bo troubled any further  with wakefulness."  "Tho idea u�� mo coolly making up  my mind to go to sleep while 3*011 aro  out is perfectly preposterous. I wouldu 't  bo so heartless.''  "Well, I won't go out tomorrow  night. I'll stay in with you, but tonight  I must."  "Oh, dear, I suppose. I must stand it,  but I'm sure something will happen. I  have a presentiment, aud when did n:y  presentiments ever fail? Wo may never  see each other again. If you como home  and find baby and mo killed, don't be  surprised."  "I'll try not to be," replied Mr.  Wylks, as he put on his overcoat and  eniilcd down at tho troubled face of hia  wife. Then ho gavo her a goodby his;  and left her, and sho hurried through  tho house to mako suro that tho windows wero all fastened down and the  bolts of the doors pushed into their fastenings, and then sho sat down and  read all the startling accidents, tho ter-  riblo burglaries and tho frightful murders that tho daily papers furnished so  plentifully, and when she had got her-  Bolf wrought up so that sho could sis  still no longer sho onco moro visited all  the windows and doors and warned tho  girls against removing a single bolt or  bar. Then sho returned to her coxy sitting room and sat down in silsnee, lis  tening for tho sounding of somo thieving wretch and trying to imagine what  she should do if ono of tho villains  ehould confront her and demand her  jewels and tho key to tho silver closet.  Timo went on and tho clock struck  11; still sho was undecided what sho  had botter do if any thing unusual should  happen. Tlio girls had gone up to bed  and wero undoubtedly sound asleep.  Half au hour crept by. Baby cried  cut in his sleep, and Mrs. Wylk.s hastened to him, for tboro was no nurse to  attend him. Mrs. Wylks never would  tnysfc tho littlo darling with any ono but  herself. Sho shut and fastened tlio bedroom door, and lay down besido her littlo ouo tosootho him to sleep. Tho clock  /truck 12, aud then Mrs. Wylks heard  a noiso. Breathlessly sho listened. Hott  footsteps woro creeping up tho stairs.  They pausod a moment at her door and  then sho hoard tho knob turn, but zia  tho door did not open tho midnight marauder passed softly on. Sho heard liiiu  outer tho sitting room, and for a moment all was still.  "Something must bo done," soliloquized Mrs. Wylks, ns sho softly raised  herself from beside her sloeping infant.  "I srcr'i M? hero iuid. let overytluiu; bo  carrfcft'oufc' of (Tib Douso. I must (In  Bomotlung."  Softly sho turned tho key and goutly  opened tho door and noiKeles-'.-.ly crept.  into tho hall, determined to do something. Tremblingly sho erupt toward  tho sitting room door, expecting every  moment to bo mat by tho mounter of 11  liiwbroukor. Bho gained tho sitliii','  room door and poop.Mlouul.imiHly in. No  ono wuh'iu sight, but sho heard���yen,  Bho vory distinctly hoard���nomo ono in  tho olosot. Au idea HUggoitted itnulf to  her mind. Sho clasped her liaudn together tor a xououri, then .ipringiiifi  quickly forward hho pushed lho closet  door to uud turned (ho key. Only 11 lew  Booonds' work nnd hIio had him safe.  Bho hoiml his cries to bo hit out uh sho  flod up tho Htuii'H to tho girla' room  iureaming:  "I've got him!

Then tho three women and tho baby took up their onward rush down  stairs. They halted to open the front  door, and tho y*tung heir of tho household, so rudely aroused from his slumbers, entered a protest in loud and angry  tones.  The door was opened, and Mrs. Wylks  took her titand cu tho stops, while the  pirls hurried away for help. What a  long time, it seemed to Mrs. Wylks,  they were gone. Sho could not hear tho  saptuved burglar banging on the door  and calling to bo released, not even  when sbo stopped into tlio hall and listened. Ho had undoubtedly resigned  himself to conquering circumstances.  "Oh, how I wish Mr. Wylks would  cornel" sho said to herself, nestling her  baby close in her arms. "I know something was going to happen. How glad  ho will bo that baby and I are safe. Oh,  I am so glad you havo come I"  This last exclamation was caused by  the appearance of the two girls and half  a dozen police.  "You'yo captured a burglar, I understand, ma'am," said tho captain, addressing Mrs.  Wylks.  "Oh, yes. He's in the closet up  stairs.���that is,, if ho has not got out,"  and Mrs. Wykes pointed "tlio way for  them to go and followed closely in tho  rear.

The r-nptaiii unlocked and opened it;  two ott'e,'i-s sprang forward and drag-  god for th'ir victim.  Mrs. Wykc-s peered from behind the  open door, where she had hidden, and  looked at the prisoner.

When  tho model was to bo begun, thero appeared  at his studio littlo Loretta Healy, accompanied by her widowed mother, Mrs. Mary  Healy. Sister Superior Theresa Magdalene  had taken tlio littlo one to confession first,  and they told tho sculptor that they had  been sent thero and that Iaoretta was to  lend her features to tho statue of St.  Agnes.  This was all kept a secret in tho parish  until the statuo was completed and ready  to bo put in its place in tho church, when  with elaborate ceremonies they blessed it.

The contribution possesses additional interest  from the fact that the writer is a resident of Nelson���the wife of Mr. W.  Rutherford of H. M.

Messrs. Toye and Shacklefon "will  give a social dance at the Tramway Park  next Tuesday evening.  George O. Madigan, boiler inspector,  ���will bo transferred to the coast.     Mr.  and Mrs. Madigan have made many,  friends in Nelson who will be sorry to  see them leave.  If there is one shop that has attractions over and above all others for the  feminine heart���and eye���it is the toilette specialist's. I don't think there is  a regular store of that nature in this  city, but there is scan ely u druggist  who does not run such a department.  And whena woman goes into a drug  store to wait for a car, or perhaps purchase a little court plaster, how lovingly sho will linger around the case  which contains powders and rouges,  fine soaps and delicious toilette creams,  manicure tools, perfumes and lotions.  There is nothing in that case that she  doesn't sigh to own. She has everything she needs; she wishes she hadn't  that she might revel in the luxury of  buying them again, no matter if the  times are hard.  The swell woman now-a-days makes  quite as' much of her toilet table as the  actress.   She has quite as many jars of  mysterious    preparations,    and     she  spends no end of time in getting herself into a delicious state of lovliuess  and finished daintiness.    To be well  groomed is as much the mark of good  station as slender hands aud high brow  are the marks of good blood. The dressing room is sacicd grcuud, and one is  shy of drawing the portier aside to witness its Becrets, yet thoy are such interesting secrets one is tempted to whisper them.    A lady friend writes that  she knows of a room of this sort that is  perfectly appointed.     There is a wide  mirror on one wall and a full length of  glass with folding leaves at one side of  a wide window.     Upon the other side  of this window is the table surmounted  by nn oval glass.   There are candelabra  on both tides of all the mirrorc, making  a perfect light to detect any Haw in the  grand   accompllbhinent  of   diest-ing.  Upon my lady's tabic are instruments  mounted with silver of every nature  that night be utilized.   A magnifying  glass is provided that tlie eye may not  prove treacherous in its judgment.  To tee the fair mistrcbu of this apartment in a robe of neglige seated bt fore  the table, scrutinizing the top of Iter  note, or tiaiching for the threads cf  cure which lute purlieu leave around the  4'yen, ono would but-pict the examination  to Le a tciltus one.
