Seg^ae  CROW'S NEST MINERS BUSY  Happy  Termination of the East  Kootenay Coal Strike*  CONCILIATION WAS SUCCESSFUL  RICH ORE ON  NORTH FORK  Coke and Coal for Boundary Smelters Will Be  Shipped Soon. V -*-"���'*  Tlic final act 'in the Ciow's Nest  Pass coal iniucts'-stiike drama was  played last Monday morning when the  ai tides of agreement with the coal  company management secured by the  conciliaiion'commit'ce were officially  signed by G. F. Dougheily, president  of District Association No. 6, Western  Federation of Miners, and Philip  Chiistopher, pie&idenl o( District  Union No. 7, and other membeis of  local unions.  Ihe miners went on strike February  it, will) a long list of grievances,  among which were an unequal scale,  discriminating conditions of work and  noniecognition of union'. The conciliation committee's first efforts' were  to obtain recognition of the district  executive and thus establish a reliable  medium for negotiations with the management and the 1300 men on strike.  This done, other matters were taken  up and over 30 witnesses were examined under oath on Maich ?i.  The distiict executive and the company management had come to an  agreement and the conciliation boaid  prepared to-return home, The reler-  endum principle obtains in the unions,  however,' and the agreement accepted  by the executive was emphatically rejected by a vote of the unions.  The gravity of the outlook induced  the conciliation committee to try again,  with the lesult that the amended agreement has been accepted by an overwhelming majority in two of the  unions, Michel and Monissey, and  later by the Feri.ie union, and work  was resumed immediately,  Provisions of the Agreement.  The following are someol the prom  inent features of the conliact:  A grievance committee shall investigate disputes between the bosses and  the men.  The company shall pay the sum of  $3 per day for all miners taken from  piece working places if taken fiom face  to do company work. .        ,  That in any case where it may appear  that a man is not being fairly treated  the comapny will meet, through the  mine manager of the mine in question  aud the men for a term of not less than  two years, lease at a reasonable rental  a piece of ground to the men at Michel.  In consideration of the foregoing  and the promises and covenant herein  provided for, it is hereby convenanted,  declaied and agreed by and between  the parties hereto, that the term of.the  agiesment shall he for a period of three  years-from April 1st, 1903, to April 1st,  190C. Provided, always, that on or  after the expiration of'April, 1905,  cither party can, by giving 60 days'  notice in writing to the other, terminate this agreement, and further provided that in the event of., Che company  being able to secure an advance in price  for its commodity over that at present  paid the wage scale will be open to revision. '  Wage scale, Coal Creek: No. 1 mine,  the mining rate has been reduced from  60 to 5$ cents, while in. No. 2 and No.  3 mines the old rate of 60 cents is unchanged. The yardage invlevels, parallels and crosscuts in No. 1 has been  reduced from $2.50 to$i; in No, 2,  from $2.50 to $1.50 and in No. 3  from $2.50 to $2, while the room cross-  ruts in all three remain'at the old r.-ue  ol 50 cents per lineal yard,  At Michel, in Nos. 3, 4 and 8, the  old mining tate of 55 cents per ton is  maintained, while in No. ^j'mine, the  old rate is increased from 55 to 60  cents.. The yardage rate in No. 4 has  been increased from $1.85 to $2; in  No, 5 the old rate is maintained on  yaidage, with the exception of a reduction from $2 40 to $2 per yerd on  ciosccuts between levels, In No, 1  mine the yaidage in levels and parallels is raised fiom $1.40 to $1.75, and  the crosscut rate between levels is in  creased from $f to $1.75, all other  yardage rates remaining unchanged.  Morrissey���The mining rate in No. 1  mine has received an increase of'io  cents a ton, the old rate of 40 cents  being taised to 50 cents, while in Nos.  3, 4 and 5 the old rate of 55 cents is  maintained. The yardage rate in levels  and parallels.in No. 1 mine has been  reduced from $2 to$i, in No. 2 mine  from $2 to $1.50, and in No. 4 mine  from'$2 to $1, while the rate for cross-  Seattle Claim is Being Systematically Developed.  AIR COMPRESSOR TO BE INSTALLED  Boundary Mining Notes.  Trail Smeller People Have a Bond on la<  Property���First Shipment was Saldino  lory���Mine Making Good Showing.  a committee of investigation as provid- cuts between levds in No. 3 has been  ed by the statutes of British Columbia.  I'n the event of a non-agreement, the  company, through its high officials, will  discuss the question with tbe committee.  It is understood and agreed by the  parties hereto that there shall be no discrimination by the company nor by the  men between unionists and non-unionists. , .  That the company will deliver all  timbers as near the working places as  possible, or at the mouth of the room.  The company to lay one length of  rail from frog, after which the miner is  to cany on his track, in consideration  of 30 cents being paid for each and  every lineal yard of double track laid  by the miner.  The company will meet the committee of any local to discuss any .grievance, and failing adjustment of difficulty so presented, will meet the ex  ecutive of the district, provided in al!  cases the personnel of the different  committees be made up entirely of the  employees ol the company.  That the company are unwilling to  chajige the system adopted for a single  system shift, eight hours' woik required of all day hands for eight hours'  pay. The system as adopted at .Coal  Creek is understood as commencing at  the lamp station inside the mine at 7  o'clock, a total'cessation of woik during one half hour at noon, the shift to  close at the lamp station at 3.30.  That the company will sell a lot or  lots to the men at Monissey on the  new townsite being opened by the company.  The company will, on the conclusion  of thft agreement between the company  increased from $1 per yard to$i.5d;all  other yardage rales remain unchanged.  In all the mines of the three camps  tlie rate for limbering is to be fixed at  $1 per set, with lagging and centre post  when lequired. All timber and lagging will be delivered by the company  as near the woikings as possible and  thereafter handled, framed, and set up  by the miner. The old rate was 75  cents and $1 according to the mine.  The company will build first section  of chutes, miiiers to build thereafter  and will be paid at the rate of 30 cents  per lineal yard for all chutes built, the  company to deliver all material at foot  of chines. Brushing six feet wide, 5  cents per inch in depth, per lineal yard;  12 feet wide, 10 cents per inch in depth,  per line al yard. This is reckoned on  a new system but is practically the  same rating as the old.  From a long list ol wages offered by  the company from the old figures which  were paid by the company no changes  have been made in day work except in  the following instances:  Fire boss increased from$3 to $3.25;  brattkemen increased ��'rom$2.75 to$3;  hoistmen from $2.50 to $2.75; general  outside laborers increased from $1.75  to $1.80; this does not effect outside  men who were earning $2. No reductions were made in any day laborers,  miners, timhermen and tracklayers who  are to be placed -it their old rate of $3.  The coke oven wen get certain advantages also.  The new scale is generally thought  to be very fair, even by the miners,  the chief objection of the latter being  the five cent cut at Coal Creek.  Some three mouths or more ai��o interests connected with the Trail smelter secured a bond on the well known  Seattle claim, on the North F'oik of  Kettle river. The bond was for $85,-  000, it is stated, and is* said tj have  one unusual feature, in that it is to he  paid in the shape of a loyally of ten  cents per ton for every ton of ore shipped, with a minimum per month, wheth-  ei ore is mined or not.  Early in-January a force of men was  started at work developing the Seattle,  under the foiemanship of R.H. Hutch,  ens, formerly foreman at the Mother"  Lode mine, in Dpadwood camp. One  or two shipments of ore have been  made, and it is understood that excel-  lents returns were made, greatly encouraging the holders of the bond.  Eight men are now al work on the  property, but it is the intention to install a five-drill air compressor at an  early date, when three shifts will be  employed, and the property most expeditiously developed.  It is the intention to quany the ore  of lower giade, of which there is a  large outcropping, while the better class  of ore will be gotten out and shipped in  the regular course of developmsnt.  It is reported that a rich find of oie  was made on the Seattle a few days  ago, there being some 25 feet of it so  fafrwhich"ruris"between"jp4o and $50  pei ton.  At the time the bond was taken from  Robert Claik, the owner, it was stated  that the new owneis would spend $1,-  000 per month in opening up the  Seattle, and from what can be learned  it now appears that much more than  that will soon be spent every month.  Those who have seen the property assert that it has evciy evidence of being  made one of ihe largest and most valu-  ahl .��� mines in the Houndarv.  Prices of Some Boundary Stocks.  Refening to companies operating in  the neighboihood of Phoenix the New  Yoik Engineering & Mining Journal  recently published the following:.  '���British Columbia copper stocks  were stationary,1 as the coal strike there  prevents active operation at the mines.  Ii. C. Copper company stock is he.lu at  $6)4 to $6}4, while Montreal & Boston was $ifs on moderate dealings.-  The Montreal & Boston company had  a surplus ol"$i25,629011 December 31,  1902, from a year'a Work, which compares with $149,639 on the same day  in 1901. President Melville says that  as soon as a sufficient supply of coke is  obtainable the, third furnace will be  blown in. Had not the coal stiike  taken place in British Columbia, it is  said, dividends of 4 per cent, payable  quarterly,,would have been started on  May t, as was intended.  Work at the Emma mine was discontinued several days ago, but is expected to be resumed next week, again.  About one car per day is being shipped fiom the Christina lake limequarry  to ihe Tiail smelter. Supt. Waugh  lias about ten men at work now.  ' Supt. Evans is working a small force  of men at the Humming Bird on the  North Foi k. The last returns from a |  shipment made gave $25 net per ton.  Arrangements are being made to list  Gianby shares on the Boston and New  York slock exchanges. The Montreal  and Boston and B. C. Copper shares  are already listed.  EdwarCd and Morrison now have  the long tunnel on the Blue Jay, near  Phoenix, driven about 160 feet, and  expect to strike the ledge with another  25 or 30 feet of work.  S. C. Holman, for several months  foreman at the Mother Lode mine,  spent last Monday in the city. He  left for Spokane.this week, all the men  at the mine having been laid off.  lames McNulty, with an assistant,  has started development wrrk on the  Marshall claim, one of the Mai shall  gioup, which adjoins the Brooklyn  group on the north side of the city.  Some magnificent samples of high  grade ore are being taken from the  Elkhorn, adjoining the Providence.east  of Greenwood. It bids fair to prove a  gieat mine, according to all reports.  On the first of April there were 246  names on the Gianby mines payroll,  and some men have been put on since.  The Snowshoe has about 35 men at  woik, and at last has plenty of water  for all purposes.  Both of the 700 horse power motors,  to drive the huge 60-di ill air compressor recently installed by the Granby  Co. here, have been shipped from the  works at Pittsburg, and the Srst one is  due to arrive here at an) time.  F. S. Pariish, manager of the B. C.  mine and also of the Le Roi, recently  made an expeit examination of the  Republic mine for the eastern owners,  being assisted by R. H. Anderson,  foreman of the B. C. mine.  Last Saturday the armature of the  rco hoise power motor used to drive  the large oie ciusher at the Knob Hill  mine, was burned out, and woik at the  crusher stopped for a time. New  paitt have been on the road-for over a  month fiom Peterborough, Ont., and  arrived jesterday.  Owing to an accident on the Arrowhead branch of the C. P. R., thereby  delaying shipments of coke from the  coast, one furnace at the Granby smel-  ter.was blown out Wednesday, leaving  but one in operation out of the battery  of four, and that one was blown out  yesteiday. One or more will probably  be blown in, however; early next week.  Up to the time it closed, a few weeks  a.-jo, on account of fuel shortage, the  Montreal 5: Boston Copper Co.'s Sunset smelter at Boundary Falls had treated 33,433 tons of ore from the B. C,  Siiowshoe and Sunset mines, and shipped 1,070 tons of matte ol about 45  per cent copper, 1 }6 ounces gold and  l.S ounces silver per ton.

Weston and Herbert's Big Modem  Vaudeville Show will g.ve perfcrm-  ances at Miners' Union hall, Phoenix,  next Monday and Tuesday. This is  said to be the best show that has ever  visited the Kootenays, and those who  saw it in Rossland and Nelson speak  very highly of it. They showed two  nights in both pla.-es and the attendance was so large that they are to play  a return engagement next week in  each place. It is for this reason that  the Boundary is to be visited, as 'he  intention at first was only to show in  the larger cities. They are to open  the Easter season in tbe Marqimm  Grand Theatre at Portland, Ore., on  April 22nd. The Nelson News speaks  in the highest terms of the show, as  did also the Rossland papers.  The dominion government intends  putting on more men as rangers to  protect the timber lands of the railway belt from fire.  Special Meeting Next Friday.  A meeting of the Phoenix branch of  the Provincial Mining Association will  be held next Friday evening at 8  o'clock in the room below Miners'  Union hall. Secretary Tomlinson requests a.full attendance of those interested .  At the annual meeting . of the Monti eal & Boston Copper  company, recently held at Montreal, a favorable report was presented, showing a balance  on the right side.    Operations were so  satisfactory that the company  decided  to increase the capacity of its furnaces.  The second  furnace was  ordered for  December 1, but  was not completed  till January 1, and started January 15,-  but owing to trouble in the coal dis-v  tricts not enough coke could  be procured.to keep both  furnaces going at  the same time.    The third furnace has  been built and is being set up.     Notwithstanding the strike troubles, profits  nave been so good 'that  the .directors-,  decided to add a converter for convert-'  ing the matte into blister copper. Last"-'  year's officers were re-elected.  The officers are:     H. II;' Melville,  Boston, president; J. N. Greenshields,  Montreal, vice-president; Thos.

First   Came   lo   Ihe   Boundary   Forty-two  to   the   Boundary  Years Ago.  John Thornton, who is known far  and wide by old-timers as "Jolly Jack,"  died at Boundary Falls last Wednesday, and the funeral was held yesterday, interment taking place in his private buiying ground, near wheie he  had lived so many.years. Thefuneial  was held by the Kettle River Pioneeis,  among them being G. W. Rumberger,  T. J. Hardy, and Tames Marshall, of  Phoenix. "  Jolly Jack first came to the Boundary in 1861, even before the Dewdney  trail was constituted. He was born  in, England in 1835, being 7S yeaisold  when death claimed him". He had  been in niany paits of the world as a  seaman in the Biitish navy, and was a  veteran of the Mexican war, icceiving  a pension from the American government at the time of his death. He  had prospected all over the west, and  was attracted to British Columbia by  the Cariboo placer excitement in iS6o,  coming after that to the Houndaiy,  when it was a veritable, howling wilderness. For years he had lived in his  cabin at Boundary Falls, and eventually succumbed to old age.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

The piompt action "f the Government in assuming the e%penses of the  conciliation committee appointed by  the Provincial Mining Association was  wise and creditable, and was no small  factor in the final gratifying outcome  in the settlement of the labor troubles  at Fernie.    Could there be abetter argument for  compulsory arbitration than the disastrous strike of the coal miners' employed by the Crow's Nett Pass Coal  Co. ? Both sides are always losers in  such struggles, and in this case thousands of innocent persons, hundreds ol  miles from the coal mines, aie directly  and seriously affected.  <UNION  2HD  WHAT EDITORS SAY  Here Also��� Fifteen-cent copper  ought to make Eostouians smile.

Good News~t6 All -t The settlement of the Fernie strike was good  news'to all the mining camps of this  north country. We hope it will stay  settled.���Republic IMoncer-Miner.  Bright Outlook���The outlook for  British Columbia is brighter than for  the past three years. Following the  boom in the lumber industry comes  promise of busy times in mining.-  Revelstoke Mail.  The news flashed over the wires last  Saturday night, that Manager Tonkin,  of trie Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., and  the coal miners employed by him at  Michel, Morrissey and Fernie, in East  , Kootenay, had finally arrived at an  agreement which" will be in force for a  term of two years, was the most agreeable information that could have been  received by every resident and business  man in Kootenay and Yale. The strike  had .lasted seven   weeks,   and   was  in danger of being a prolonged struggle, with ruin to;thousands-who  had  np hand in it/ if it was not settled  soon.,'   ,.*/'-'-  " It goes without saying that concessions had to be made on ���' both  sides,  as is always i necessary iri such cases  nkde and provided, i The miners have  gained something, and the coal company has also arranged ��� matters more  to its liking in many respects.    All of  which merely goes to prove that, had  the matter been taken up in time, this  strike could have been averted.  - The greatest credit is due the members of the special conciliation- committee, appointed  by the Provincial  Mining Association for the purpose of  securing a settlement in some way honorable to both parties.   Their  work  was a most disagreeable one in  every  way���so much so that but few who  .have not visited Fernie can realize  their position.   Yet they never hesitated, and would not give up until the  last resource had been tried.   Should  the   Mining  Association   never accomplish another thing, as the Pioneer  slated a few weeks ago, it has already  justified its usefulness in this case of  the coal miners'strike.    The names  of the members of- the conciliation  committee should be remembered  by  Mi"   r      1  ' the people of British Columbia. They  are: John Keen and M. McAndrews,  Kaslo; Fredeiic Kefler arid W. G.  Gaunce, Greenwood; A. C. Flumer-  felt, Grand Forks; Chris Foley, Vancouver, and H. G. Seaman, Rossland.

G.6C.MERRIAM CO  Publishers  Springfield, Mass.  ;   ''- Some time in September the British  " parliamentary'party will visit Phoenix  "itl the course of the trip through Canada.    This is but one of several  note-  able parties that will inspect the great  mines of the Boundary this yeai.  Is the coal miners' strike realy settled for two years ? There has been  such a surfeit of unrest in East Kootenay that it is to be hoped, for the bene-  r-6t of the entire country, that a long  season of prosperity will now ensue.  Yielding .to pressure from British  Columbia, Premier Laurier has at last  introduced a measure in the Dominion  parliament raising the headtax on Chinese lo $500. It is pleasing to note  that this time "impetiaS reasons" have  j'jnot operated against the measure ��� at  teast, not yet.  A dispatch from Winnipeg states that  W. A. Campbell, once of Toronto, has  made so much money in the newspaper business in Oregon, that he is now  investing his spare coin in some 6,000  Smelter men state that the Salt Lake  valley mining properties are outputling  3,Soojooo pounds of copper monthly.  The gold output of the Canadian  Yukon since the country was first  entered by the whites exceeds $8o,-  000,000.  While there is abundant proof of the  richness "of Tonopah, Nev., suspicion  is growing- that the boom is being overdone by reckless promotors.  The Droduct of the Amalgamated  Copper company being about 150,000,-  000 pounds annually, the advance ofa  cent in the pi ice of copper increases the  earnings of the company $2,500,000.  Mr. J. Whittaker Wright, the London promoter under arrest in New  York, has an allegation pending against  him of contributing to a deficit-of one  hundred million dollars in his foreign  financial. achievements.  Amalgamated copper experts confirm  the report that the trust is negotiating  for the Champion mine of the Lake district, which they say can  be  made to  produce 20,000,000 pounds, making it  second  to  the Calumet and   Ilecla  properties.  ' Mine operators of Southern Sonoia,  Mexico, are said to contemplate shipment of ore to Germany  for smelting,  the method of handling being  preferable to sending via lailroads to   Mexican and American  smelters,  because  trading vessels will take the ore as ballast.  Hutte has .some deep shafts for  mine operations. During the latter  part of lact year an additional 100 feet  was added to the Anaconda, St.  Lawrence and Never Sweat shafts,  making them 2,000 feet each. The  High Ore, Green Mountain and Diamond and Mountain Consolidated  shatts are each 9,209 feet deep..  Domln'on Redistribution at Last.  A plan for redistribution of British  Columbia constituencies has been decided upon. Under it Yale-Cariboo  is divided into two constituencies by  a line running north and south.  New Westminster is retained practically as at present.  Burrard becomes the constituency  of Vancouver, thus getting rid of the  present confusion.  Victoria loses one member.  Vancouver district as'now represented by Ralph Smith, becomes Nanaimo.  A new constituency is created called  Comox-Atlin, which aiso includes Cas-  siar.

Many peisons throughout the Houndaiy and Rossland districts aie intei-  esied in ciown-gianled mineral claims,  of which some 418 have been ndveitis-  ed fir sale on the 15th of Aptil at  Rossland fur unpaid tuxes. It is possible a postponement ma) be decided  upon in the inteiim, but unless action  in this direction is taken the sale will  pioceed as announced in the advertis*  ed list of claims.  'The suggestion has been made, and  Smith Cunis, M. I,. A,, has expressed  an opinion on the subject, that a postponement should be granted to permit  of the legislature instiling a redemption  clause in the Mineial Act, As it now  stands, the act permits no redemption.  Once the auctioneers hammer falls on  the mineral claim offered for sale, the  original owneis' lights aie^'absolutely  loifeited and the title is vested without ledempiion in the purchaser. It  has been thought that this was some-,  what of a haidship, although on the  o'her hand it is maintained with equal  vigoi that-a crown grant is merely a  license to an owner to proceed with the  development of a piopeil), and that  if the owner fails to comply with his  implied contiact with the public, there  is no reason in equity why he should  be permitted to lunher hold giound  ihat might be turned to use were others  permitted to secure it.  An interesting point has  aiisen as  the  oultome  of the  advertised sale.  Vanotis owneis of claims have  established by affidavit beloie the gold com*  missioner   that   duiing  the years in  which no  taxes   were  paid  on   their  holdings sufficient work  ($200 worth)  Wis done on the properties to  entitle  the owners to exemption.    Accordingly, in such cases the claims have been  withdiiiwn from ihe list.     The  point  referred to is that no machinery is provided in the Mineial Act for owners of  pitented land to declare that they have  done woik   sufficient   to  procure  exemptions.    In the case of. unpatented  ground the ordinary'recoid  ol  assessment serves as notice lo  the government   agent   that  the ownei   of  the  ground has complied with the act, but  when a cljim is patented no such recoid is required, and  it  is  only  when  the claim is advertised foi   sale that it  develops that the exemption  work has  been done.    A  recommendation   will  be made to  the  government that an  amending clause be added to the  act  covering this point.  ���  Of the 418 claims originally advertised, about seventy have been withdrawn by affidavit respecting exemptions'and. the payment of taxes and  costs. Of the remaining 350.it is safe  to predict that a hundred or more will  be saved from/ the hammer in the  course of the week preceding the sale  'That so'many, claims are advertised  to be sold for unpaid taxes apparently  indicates that the owners thereof do  not consider the properties worth the  taxes, which are rarely over $75. ' It is  a fact, however, and generally known,  too, that this isihe case in a few instances only. Almost every property  on the list has some value which  would make it easily worth the taxes  due upon jt.  Various contingencies account for  the remissness of the owners. In  numerous instances the claims are owned b) more than one peison, and fiic-  tion has arisen between the co-owners  as to payment of taxes, or one owner  through neglect or nonresidence has  tailed to put up his share of the assess  ment and the remaining owner or own  ers prefer seeing the claim go to the  hammer to paying the portion of the  taxes propei ly payable by a par'ner,  particularly hi view of the fact thai  under the Mineral Act there is no redemption and a clear title passes to the  purchaser. In other instances owners  of property are threatened, with litigation and take this means of clearing  their title.  not easily surprised, but this week an  enquiry was made on behalf of a young  man who is intending to emigrate, and  was also contemplating matrimony.'  His father had urged him to get married before going out, as he had grave  doubts whether there were any facilities for getting married in Canada I  He seemed greatly relieved when one j  of the officials forcibly assured him  that Canada was a Christian country.

Slxttu was dlssatUfled at  ��o young an ambassador being sent,  and, with bis usual tmnkneas,. ��ald.  "Does your master want men, that h��  sends to me a beardless ambassador?"  "Had my sovereign thought," replied  the haughty Spaniard, "that merit consisted In a beard, he would have sent  you a goat." -  ���  Charles Keaii <ud James Wallaelc  were once playing In tWe private  theater at Windsor Castle, and the  actors were somewhat chilled by the  lack of hearty applause to which they  were accustomed In public. At the  end of one act there was a .slight sug- ,  gestlon of hand-clapping and exceedingly gentle foot-tapping. ���Wallaelc.  pricking up his ears, enquired, "What  Is that?" "That, my dear Wallack,"  Kean replied, "Is applause." "Bless  me!"-exclaimed Wallack. "I thought  It was somebody shelling peas."  Bishop Potter Is accused of bavins  given currency to the following anecdote:    A Chlcagoan  had  been   taken  around Boston all day to observe her  bulwarks, but had failed to exhibit any,  of those 'symptoms of paralysis which'  are acceptable to the Bostonlan mind.  "Now   confess,"   said   the   Bostonlan  host, after the burden and heat of the  day,  "isn't  Boston  a unique  town?:*  "Unique?" mused  the Westerner;   "I  believe that word Is derived from two  Latin   words,   unus,  one,   and   eqtius,  horse.    I  think  Boston  is  a  unique  town." ���, f  Walter Dean, er��� oncd hired an artist to paint his portrait, with the stipulation that the picture would not be  accepted and paid for unless It looked  like himself. When the portrait' was  completed it was sent to Mr. Dean,  who did not recognize himself, and  absolutely refused to pay the painter.  The painter sued/ and Joe Strong, the  artist, was called in to give an expert  opinion. "You1 see the portrait of Mr.  Dean?" tbe lawyer asked. "No," said  Mr. Strong, "I do not." "There it Is,"  said the lawyer, pointing to the big  canvas. "I don't call that a portrait; T  call .that a map of Mr. Dean," Bald Mr.  Strong. , r  "Down In South Carolina," says Congressman Talbert, "I once attended a  colored church. The preacher, one of  those negroes with an oily face and  big spectacles, was talking about the  prophets. He had taken an hour to  discourse upon the major prophets, and  then he took up the minor ones. > In  course of time he reached Hosea.' 'My  breddren,' he exclaimed, 'we come now',  to Hosea. Let us consider him. Where  shall we put Hosea?' At that moment"  an old negro, who had been peacefully  slumbering In one of the back pews,''  woke up 'and looked at the pastor.  'Hosea can take my seat,' he said. 'I'm  so tired that I am going home.'"  The "Evening Poet" of New --York  narrates that on Washington's birthday a well-known New York caterer  became the possessor of a pair of Eng- '  llsh soles and English pheasants, and '  invited a couple of friends to dine oft  them at the dog show. It was a great  success, but one ot the guests,' remembering the day, said It was far from  patriotic "Why," he added, "here it  is Washington's birthday and we are  dining on English sole, pheasant and  currant Jelly, eating French bread and  drinking French wine. Let's have ,  something American. Why don't you  serve some oleomargarine?" "Don't  worry," was the reply, "you've got it."  "Good Words" prints a little story of  the early schooldays of Lord Salisbury,  when he was Lord Kobert Cecil, which  shows how soon in his. life his conspicuous disregard for dress began.  When he was about seven years old he  came into the nursery one afternoon  on his return from school, which was  held at the old rectory outside Hatfield, and dumped his books into a  corner. "Oh, Betty," he said to his old  nurse, "I wish I vas a oat!" - "La,  Lord Robert," Betty replied, "how can  you wish yourself a beast?" "Oh," he  replied, with a sigh, "when I think of  how many times I n ust dress and undress before I die 1 wish my clothes  grew on my back."  Some years ago a Phlladelpnla  preacher lnaugun.te-1 in his Sunday-  school the practice ct having the children quote some Scriptural text as  they dropped their pennies Into the  contribution box. On the first Sunday  in question, a little shaver walked up  and said: "The Lord loveth a cheerful  giver,", and In dropped his penny.  "Charity ..shall; cover,*-a multitude of  sins," ��� and In dropped the next. "It  is. more blessed to give than to receive," quoted ; the third, and so on.  Just then, up .walked a little fellow  with the unmistakable remnants of  molasses candy on his chubby face,  and, as he dropped his cent, he bawled  out: "A fool and his money, are soon  parted."  The Wit's Hoar of Trial.  Repartee is like tennis. The ball Is  driven backward and forward from  one player to the other, and the  one on whose side it last strikes Is  the loser. It Is a'terrible thing for an  artist at repartee to find that he has  no answer. The 'mere pretender does  not care. He will answer something,  ���o the point or not; but the artist will  not debase his art with a bad answer;  he merely sorrows for a good one.  There was a little Irishman who kept  a liquor shop, and he was noted for always having a reply ready. One day  a man came in, laid a dollar bill on tho  bar and called for whiskey. The proprietor set out the bottle and a.glass,  and the customer filled the glass right  up to the top. "Is it a towel you'd be  wantin'?" the proprietor asked, Implying thereby that the customer had  poured out a bath, rather 'than a drink.  "Look here," said; the customer, pointing to the money, "there's a dollar, you  can take the price ot this drink out ot  It, and If there isn't enough, tell ine  how much more you irant and I'll pay  It but I don't want any talk from a  Mule Mick of a bartender."  The proprietor picked up the dollar  and Jald down 8S cents. As the customer disappeared he walked around  In front of the *>��*��� ind said to a friend  who sat there: "Gas v, I'd have given  me liquor shop to have knowed what  to answer back to that man."
