C, SATURDAY, APRIL -4, 1903.  ���'NUBEBEB 08  RCIMNT W  GRIEVANCE  Radcliff Sustains His Reputation for Guz2ling.  surprise to Sheriff Tuck that a man  engaged as Radcliff was, should hei  interested in literature of this ohur-J  acter, and he asked hiin several  questions, the answers to which conclusively demonstrated that the  'reading of the public, executioner  embraced a wide ranga of modern  high-class literature.  COAL MINE BUT NO COAL  The  Saturday "Graft" Orders   the  Straight Ticket to Appoint  an Assessor.  "A Merchant" writes The Economist drawing attention to the fre-  auency with which the hat is  passed around for one object or an-  , other. He maintains that the  habit has reached that point whon  it should be indicted as a common  nuisance. This is not the first time  . a complaint has been registered on  this score; indeed, it ia said many  merchants r who find that it is  about all they can do to keep their  heads above water, are nearly every  day importuned . to subscribe to  something, the success or failuie of  whioh< does riot., concern them  in the least. ! When times are  good the average man submits  good-naturedly to this sort of  plucking, but in times like the present, with the.f.poorhouse looming  up in the distance, it is exasperat-  ing^obe 'forced to submit, to the  "hold-up" process; A  It iB'always a'matter of interest  to watch the movements of "people  in the public  eye."    This  is why  reference is  made to Mr. Radcliff,  a  gentleman   who  visited Nelson  last    November   on    professional  business.    Mr. Radcliff, as he himself   boasts,    belongs to  the   Dominion    "executive   staff,"    and  has a quiet, gentlemanly   way,  of  removing from this  lonely  vale of  tears individuals who havo taken  undue liberties,with the sixth com-  mandmanti.   .Recently     ho     was  called to Windsor, N. S., to prosecute his elevating  profession   with  reference to one A/.ulmlly, wh'o had  removed' a companion, and on his  way home spent a few hours  in St.  John, N. B.    He crossed tho buy in  tho   Ss. Yarmouth    and   in    tho  brief timo bolweon. Iho arrival of  tho bout and tho departure of his  train acquired a load of heroic capacity.    Ho visited several saloons  and   was  lavish  with  bin money.  Ho wan  generally   unknown, and  eevoral partook of  bin hospitality,  not being  awaro how  tho  money  wiih oiirnoJ.    But Mr. Radcliff ban  had too much oxporienco  to allow  himsolf to bpoomo  vory objection-  able.   It will bo romombored that  during,hia visit horo in Novombor,  Mr. Radcliff colobrated tho dispatch  of Honry ltoso to tho "happy hunting grounda" by getting hilariously  drunk.  Just now the attention of the  public is directed to speculation in  J coal properties in various parts of  the Kootenays. No doubt many of  the mines, present and prospective,  contain the genuine article, but it  is equally certain that many of the  properties on the market are utterly  worthless. There is a story going  the rounds concerning one "coal"  mine that may serve to illustrate the nerve some men hove  in their attempt to dupe the public.  The property in que tion has been  extensively advertised, and in order to shew the shareholders that  somathing was being done in proving the mine, a blacksmith was engaged to do development work. The  blacksmith has not hi en able to  procure enough coal with which to  build a fire to sharpen bis tool?,  and has obliged to get bark for tbat  purpose. Yet the investing public  are asked to take stock in a "coal"  mine that lias not enough coal in  sight to produce sufficient heat to  sharpen a blacksmith's drill.  The liK.t iosue of John Houston's  Saturday 'Graft" peremptorily notified Iho ''.'straight .ticket" that  they "must ^et down lo business on  Monday night and appoint an assessor." The "straight ticket" got  down to business on Monday right  and showed tbat they would no  longer indulge in tho lime-honored  pastime of 'shilly shallying and  wobbling" (most expressive words)  by appointing Thomas Ward assessor, it can honost.y bo said of  the "straight ticket" that they pos  sess the merit of obedience and are  not ashamed of their position with  regard to "the muster of iho ailjiiin-  islration." And no ono thould  blame Mr. .Houston. Hois positive in character and the p.isitivo  character rules tho world over, although ut tiiiH'H ho niny ho coin-  polled to scourge with 11 lash oi  scorpions the people who obey hi.^  tyrannical  ma ml at en.

Mr. Day has ileeided to tako up hi >  rcaidonoo in Vancouver,  One of the most interesting land-  - ��     .0   :<  marks in Winnipeg is the old crum:  bling gateway of FdftGarr}', which  stands heside a clump of trees';iri  Hudson Bay Flats, part of whicti  is now Fort Garry Park. This; is  the nor 1I1 gate of the old Hudson  Bay Fort, and which looked Out  parallel to the Red liver, across  what was then open prairie. Some  years ago, the late Lieutenant-  Governor Schullz of Manitoba  found Mr. L. M. Stevenson makjng  ii sketch of the old gate: He sug-1  gested that Mr. Stevenson should  make a sketch of tbe Fort itself,  from a photo ravure; to. be obtained from Capt.. Jackson. - The  latter gentleman was an Imperial  officer, who' had been given a reproduction of a sketch made by.-Striff-'  Sergt. Douglas of the Queen's Own  Rifles, who acted under Captain  Bruce Ilarman of Toronto in ,t'he  ll^d River Expedition of 1869. The-  sketch is the only original picture  of Fort Garry known. The . few  photogravures that were made from  this sketch are new widely scat-  tered over the world. .j  Twelve oil sketches were . flfBt  made from Capt. Jackson's phold-  gravuro for Lieutenant-Governor  Schullz. Ono of theFO the Governor sent lo Lord Wolseley, who  commanded tho expedition. Sir.ce  then there havo been hundreds of  replicas, and officers and prominont  Canadians all over Canada have  po.=M>?��e-d thi-n'isolvowif copies.

It is quite true that Mr. Lennie has hot been an aggressive politician in  the past, but it cannot be  said of him that either  hero or  in  the East he ever affiliated with tbe  Liberal party, which is more  than  c��n be truthfully said of some of ibe  ''curbstone"    Conservatives.     Mr.  Lennie is now taking  bis  bland in  politics for  the   first  time, and   it  should  be a source  of:congratulation to 0onservaiives-,that tho party  to which lhey belong baa a..policy  and principles of a quality lhat attract young men like II ,bert  Scott  Lennie.

Nrlson, March 14th, 1903-  EDITORIAL COMMENT.  ���11. ��� *y  The Speech fr.jm the Throne gives evidence  of ca,refal consideration. It proves that some  member?, at least, oT the Prior ^Government  are not too derive to understand that the  wretched state of affairs exiting in this province.; must be dealt with now and the pro-  pej^qmedjes applied at once. This may be  tbi result of C d. I'rior's various trips through  the province, fur it mu3t be confessed that the  premier--has.ahioyn a disposition to probe the  wound to the butt m and if possible remove the  Civusqpfithe triu'le. The presence of lion.  W. .^. B. 7McIn��ies in the Cabinet may .also  have had something to do with lhe up-to-dato  character of the, document. Thd, proposal to  introduce legislation that will prevent as far  a�� ppsfiible^the,disputes between capital and  labor will be greeted with delight. But such  legislation, if it is to accomplish anything of  TQ^lJben^rit,mu.-:t be made simple and effective  in : it*, oneralh.1). Another important paragraph in the ape ch is the reference to the re-  adjij-atprient of tht present syatem of taxation  ��(metalliferous mine'. This prob��bly means  tb,it an, attempt will ba made tojwipo out th  2!per cent. tux. if ao, there is likely to bo a  hostiledomniHLrition 011 the pirt of some of  tho,K jotouay in unbers, who havo been in ��st  pronounced t 1 their eiid irsation' of this tax.

Kconomy ia  Opinion differs as to the manner in which  John Houston secured admission to the Government caucu?, some believing tbat be mace  a mistake in the room, wl ie others incline to  the opinion that he climbed in over the tran-  s.m, if it happened to be open at the time.  Our own opinion is that he aitended in response lo a kindly-worded invitation.  The report i- bein?; circulated that there will  not be a provincial e'.ecti n this year. Per-  Imps not, but preparations should not cea^.  Eternal vigilance is the pr:ce of liberty, or  woids to that tffect.  R. T. Lowery and Wm. McAdams have  joined forces and will publish a paper in Vancouver to be known as tbeOz juagram, a name  which "has been manufactured for the occasion and cannot hi found anywhere el e in  earth, or in the dictionary."  It ha3 been dejide 1 to enforce tbe reiding-  oat process if the mij >rity of Conservative c'o  not bend to tbe will of the minority. It s  rather a high-handid p.-oceeding on the part  of men who are n.nt certain as to where they  stand politically. But tbe real genuine C n  servative can be depended upon to resist tbe  dictation of men who have voted just about as  often with the Liberals a? with the Cjnserva-  tives.  Persons indebted to Thk Economist for sub:  Bcriptions should bear in mind that the offer of  liquidation on the basis of $1 per year only  remains good for a few days longer, after  which date tl.e old rate of $2 per year will b  "charged. Already a great number have Uken  advantage of the offer.  Throughout tl.e Koo'enays there is "an encouraging feeling as to business activity the  coming summer. The signs of revival are apparent in almosL every branch of trade and  the people generally fed that the t'de of proi-  perity has at last turned in,this directoa.  Very iittle interest has beon.ira ifes jd n  Nelson so far with regard to ll e encou age  ment of tourist travel th3 coming se.ison.'  This is not as it should be. There is nv.re  mcn9y in toorisis thai in some' god mine=,  and it is a trade that s'lould ;be persis.'en'ily  encouraged and developed.  The sporl-lov'.ng citizens of Nelson may  look forward to a summer of pleiure. The  different clubs have organ'zid, ; nd e-pe.iully  are the lacros-.e boys m inifesting sighs of great  preparation.  Evidently CjI. Prior has succeeded in "winning over" the member for Nelson district. It  will be-remembered that this paper intimated  some time ago that'such a task, though n formidable one, was not beyond ncc^mpli.-hmunt,  .providing it was gono about ''in;.the right  spirit.  ,���1 j .

She decided ir was (iiau for Irene  to marry, and she thought I was lilted  to become a husband. With admirable  tact she managed tho whole atl'air, and  wo aro both very grateful to hor."  "And you love ouo another?" sho asked.  "We admire ono another," I replied,  "and that is an excellent substitute."  "Do you think your tastes aro similar?"  "Oh, they aro not, "I replied frankly. "But jvo will mako allowances.  Mrs. Kouyon has boon thinking that it  i.s timo for us to settle down. As you  know," when-Mrs. Kunyon thinks there  is generally a, result, and, what is more,  ehe has discovered a houso which au  architect unconsciously designed tc  meet Irene's requirements."  "How lucky!" said Dora.  "Yes. Isn't it jolly? I havo to settle  within three days. This is tho .surprise  in store for Irene. "  Dora looked ahead at; tho others.  They woro about 200-yards in front.  "When aro you going to break the  news to her?"  "Somo timo or other. It does not lcoli  nfi if sho would welcome an. interruption  just now. .- Grierson, who is also studious, can always provide a subject of interest to her. That is why I encourage  the'iicquaiutance."  "You aro very generous."  "That is hardly tho word.. The principle involved is ono of give and take."  The.ro was silence for a moment or so.  "Wo really must catch them up,"  said sho at length.  "Yes," really wo must," I replied,  back pedaling a little. "I hear that you  leave tomorrow."  I had been out to South Africa a fo^v  months, previously, and on my way  homo had mot tho Page.ts, who h.-w'  come on board at Madeira.  "Tho dear old Button castle!" sho  exclaimed. "Thoso days woro tho niosf  pleasant 1 havo over f-n.-.ufc."  "Yes, they  wero very  charniinr.," J  assented with a half sigh. "We saw a  good deal of ono another during that  short voyage."  Looking ahead, I noticed that Irene?  nnd (U-ierson wero riding vory slowly.  "Unless wo gist off and walk," I said,  "lam afraid wo shall havo to catch  them up."  " "That has been my endeavor for some  time," said Dora. "1 shall rido with  MivGrier.soivand leavo you with Irene."  "lain not at all sure that ho wants  to rido Willi you."  Dora gave a littlo toss of her head.  ���'Men aro not supposed to act a.> l.hoy  wb'ih whoro ladies aro concerned."  "That is evidently Mrs. Kenyon's  idea," I remarked.  Wo joined tho olliei-s.  " You MJcmul to ].o somewhat interested in a. disi-iiysioii, " 1 said to (.riev-  Knn, "sown decided not to worry you  With miv chattel'."  "Miss L'aii'i'ax and myself," ho replied with HHinile, "wero comparing  our impressions of u book we huvo both  perused."  Tlio four of ns voile along slowly for  some disunion, Presently Dora, true to  hor word, gradually drew (irierson  iilumd, and Irom. and myself were left a  few yards behind.

"Don't you think, Hugh, that in the  past wo havo been accustomed to pay  Jast a trifle too much attention to what  auntio says?"  I shot a glance at her. Hor eyes were  contemplating the handle bars.  "I suppose that is why we became  engaged,'' I ventured.  "Do you mean to say that yon didn't  love me?" she asked quickly. I thought  I detected a shade of eagerness iu her  tone.  . "My dear Irene," I said reproachfully, "do yo*a think we should have  become engaged il" wo had not been attracted to iii;u another?"  "Yes, yes," she- said impatiently  "But do wo love one another?"  "Of lhat I am not so sure. "  Sho was thoughtful for a. moment.  "Then," sho said slowly, "do you  think, Hugh, we aro justified in running such a terrible risk?"  1 fought the matter out with my con  science.  ">7o, " I said at length.

There was a long pause.  Wo reached Walbridgo corner, and  alighting from our machines seated ourselves on a grassy bank to await the  others.    Iu a few minutes they rode up.  "Well, I do think you aro mean!"  cried Dora.  "Yes, wo must apologize," I said.  "We took a short cnt to happiness���I  mean to Walbridge. " I pulled out my  watch. " We must hurry to bo back in  timo for luncheon."  Wo mo-anted, and again I found myself by Dora's side,  "Your father invited mo to come and  mako a stay at your town house," ]  said.    "May I?"  "But Irouo would not consent to  your deserting her."  "I think she would bo rather glad.  You know wo adume oiie another. Well,  we have been talking tho matter ovel  and como to the conclusion that this ie  not quite sulHeient, so by mutual consent wo havo 13rininatcd tho engago ���  ment."  ���-"Is lhat what happened in the lane?"  she exclaimed in surprise.  "Yes. That is why I think the 'hum  of things,' followed by a trip to New  Zealand, would bo distinctly agreeable.  May I come?"  "Yes," she said, with a smile, "ii  you promiso not to devote too much  time to the club window. But, Mrs.  Kcnyon���what will"��� sho added.  "I don't know," I replied, "and,  strango to say, a feeling that 1 don't  caro much is gradually taking possession of me.  Dora laughed gayly.  "How bravo you aro I" sho said.

In The Ladies' Home Journal Mrs. S. T.  Rorer writes of "Fruits as Food and Frulta  bs Poison" and names the kinds allowed  on hor own table. These aro "fresh flgp,  dried ones carefully cooked, guavas canned  without sugar, guava jelly, orange marmalade made by spcial homo recipe, dates  both raw and cooked, with almonds, persimmons, bananas cooked and an occasional dish of prunes with the skins re-  ntoved, blackberries and dewberries, slightly cooked, strained aud made into flummery. The objection to the latter fruit,  however," sho saj-s, "is the addition of  starch and sugar, which is prono to fermentation. AU fruits, whether cooked or  raw, should ho used without sugar. It  must bo remembered that sugar in no  way neutralizes an acid. For this an  alkali must bo used. Sugar sprinkled over  an acid fruit masks the objectionable and  Ecvcro acid until it slips by tho 'guard  keeper,' tho palate. Once in the stomach,  however, it regains its own position aud  grants tho same to tho irritating acid.'''  Women Braver Thau Men.  Tho question whether women are mora  courageous or whether they are constitutionally less sensitive to pain than arc  men has recently been raised by The Fortnightly Kevicw. Doctors and dentists all  over tlie world agree that they bear pain  with more fortitude and inmost instances  submit to x'.ainful surgical operations with  mora bravery than does tho so called  stronger sex, from whom moro endurance  is to bo expected.  A woman who will scream at tho sight  of a mouse will undergo every variety of  dental operation with courage and facility.  Dr. Evans, the celebrated American dentist of Paris, gave It as his experience that  women swoon under tho dentist's hand?  much less frequently than men, and th��  general testimony of surgeons in hospital  practice is to tlio same etfect. However,  doctors disagree as to whether this is due to  superior bravery on the part of women or  whether they aro physically inscnsiblo as  compared with men.  aster  jccursion  Fare   and Third for  und Trip  Avi'i 1 9. 1".

He often  spent the evening at my uncle's there  and though I was not intimate with  him, I knew him well enough and  heard enough about him to know  what a general favorite he was among j  his acquaintances and the coterie ot  young fellows who like himself had  come from the north to make their fortunes in Glasgow. He first worked in  a draper's in Aberdeen and came to  the metropolis, as it offered better opportunities. He was a genial, happy  dispositioned young fellow at that  time, yet showing the determination  and energy which account for his later  achievements. Whut led to his joining the army and giving up what all  his friends thought a most promising  business career, I have never heard explained. The feelinc that prevailed  -was that without influence, without  friends in the service, his succe.siu his  new lifo. would be uncommensuratc  ���with his qualities. His later achievements must be set down to his own  great worth and perseverance. He  -was a typical Northern Scot, some-  -what set in his opinions, hard-working  and glorying in it and at the same time  possessed of the unobtrusiveness that  is characteristic of such men. He was  Hector Macdonald to his friends always and bote the honors his merit  had won ,very modestly. That he  should ended his life as he did is almost incomprehensible. Perhaps an  explanation may bo found in his physical condition. He suffered mueh  from the fevers incidental to an Eastern soldier's life, and his mind may  have been affected even to .the extent  of permitting him to make a false step.  Knowing it and feeling that such a  step meant ruin to one whose rise from  humble beginnings amid a none too  favorable a military and social atmosphere had depended upon his carefulness the man who bad faced death in  many-ways could not face disgrace at  the hands of his red tape enemiea.

Much interest is being taken in the  Jessie MacLuch Ian concert, to be given  nt the O^iera House next Monday evening. Miss MacLachlan enjoys worldwide fame, and has drawn crowded  houses everywhere on her tour.

It is understood that tlie Shamrock  Lacrosse Club of Montreal will have  the same team in the field this year as  last.  Brantford has not decided whether  or not they will compete for the Minto  Cup this season.  Nelson will have a stronger team  this year than everbrfore. There will  be two or three changes on the team.  The Nelson intermediate lacrosse  and hockey club has been organized  with the following officers : President,  Robert Carley; vice-president, J. A. T.  Richards; secretary-treasurer, Norman  Stewart; Manager, A. Perrier. Executive committee, D. McNicol, J.  Hawkins, A. Jeffs; captain L. Steele.  Team committe, L. Steele, B. Davidson, and C. McBeath. An effort is being made to have a match with Rossland intermediates on Good Friday.  Says the Ottawa Citizeu : It is safe  betting that not more than half of the  old team will be back on the field, and  the younger players are just now turning over in their minds the advisability of going to Oshawa, Port Hope,  Sault Ste. Marie. Brampton and other  towns. Among those who have been  invited to play in C. L. A. burgs are  Herb Ralph, Hutton, .Tack Shea, Billy  Fagan, Kimpton and Tom Blyth. Tlie  line-up of tho year may bo described as  follows, says tho Ottawa Citizen :  Goal, Hutton, doubtful; point, Herb  Ralph; covor-point, Arthur Moore and  Dud. Baldwin; llrst defence, Bowery  Robertson, doubtful ; second defence,  Jack Blinks, doubtful; third defence,  Alf Stowart, will not play ; centre,  Ernie Buttorworth or Billy Starrs;  third homo, Hurry Woslwick, doubtful; second.homo, Frod. Woods, doubtful; first homo Eddio Murphy, doubtful; outside homo, Nollum Kimpton,  doubtful; inside home, .luck Powers,  will not play.
