SOMIi SURVEYING YET TO BE DONE  DOMINION OFFICIALS DO NOT CARE.  i'hoenix lb Likely to Re Hie Only Boundary  Camp Tappjd by the Great Northern This  Vear���Others Later.  POST-OFFICE STORE.  Aii impression has gained currency  during the last week that possibly the  (ireat Northern railway people would  not build its V., V. �� K. branch into  I'hpenix , this year. This seems to  have started from tlie ract that parties  of surveyors have recently been taken  off their work near Midway. By careful inmiiry, as nearly as the Pioneer  can find out, there is no foundation  f *r the tumors���al least, as far as the  Phoenix branch is concerned.  We are not in the inner councils of  the Great Noithern or the V., V. &E.  people, but we have every reason to  believe that the road will be built this  year, as Mr. Hill stated. The largei  part of the right of way from Grand  Forks to I'hoenix ��� some 24 miles ���-  has been secured, and much of it paid  fur and the deeds delivered, including  the Granby smelter spur. We do hot  think the railway people are secuiing  this land for any other purpose than to  build, and that at the earliest moment  that all the plans are completed,' the  entire line will be placed under construction.  James I. Hill, president, ofthe Great  Northern, gives the final word to proceed. He has only just returned from  a trip to Europe, and the definite plans  of location are probably now being sub  mined to him for approval.  What Mr. Des Brlwy Thinks. j  Chas. A. Des Brisay, light of way  agent for the Great Northern, arrived  in I'hoenix from Spokane by Thursday's train. As is well known, railway  men as a rule are averse to talking for  publication, and Mr. Des Brisay is no  exception. Nevertheless, he is going  steadily about his business of closing  up negotiations, getting options, securing deeds and delivering ' checks for  more pieces of right of way. Twenty  or thirty lots that the railway must  cross in Summit City have been bought  and paid for, aud a number of deals in  the citv of Phoenix have likewise been  closed.  .Mr. Des Brisay stated that there is  practically no difficulty as far as the  right of way is concerned, although a  few minor matters had still to be closed up.        .  '  On Providence creek some more  suiveying has yet to be done, on the  noith slopes, where there is still considerable snow. A few more lines are  also to be run in Phoenix, Pat Welch,  the contractor, who will have charge  of construction,.has some stock in this  section, and although he also has work  on the Kalispell cutoff, has left hi*-  stock heie to be ready for use as soon  as orders come to proceed on llu-  Phoenix branch. 'I'he month ol May.  with the snow gone, surveys completed,  and right of way secured, should set  the first dirt thrown on the new line u>  Phoenix.  Phoenix May Be Entrepot.  As is now well known, the Great  Noithern railway for some little lime  past has been concentrating all its energies in getting work started on tlu  Kalispell cut-off, in Montana, but then  is no doubt that the officials appreciate  the importance of getting the Phoenix  branch constructed at the earliest date,  as this is about the only camp in tht  Boundary at present where they can  get tonnage to warrant the spending 01  perhaps three-quarters of a million dollars on a shoit feeding line.  Assuming that the line will not bt  built to Midway and Greenwood this  yer.r, from Curlew, as we are informed  many of the residents of these places  now believe, the importance of its  building to Phoenix can be better appreciated. In that case doubtless all  passengers and mail from the American  side, and from Canada east of Winnipeg, bound for Greenwood and points  west of there, will travel by way ol  Phoenix, making this city practically  the entrepot to the important mining  camps of the entire Boundary district,  and giving us the outside mail 24  hours sooner than at present.  Will not Increase Duty on Lead- Many Protests Being Made.  Finance   Minister   Fielding's statements at Ottawa a few days ago regard  ing  the lead  industiy  in  his buget  speech was as follows:  "Another industry on whose behalf  urgent representations have been made  to us is the lead industry of British  Columbia. We find, however, that the  duties which the people interested in  that industry desired to see imposed  would necessitate; a readjustment of  other duties, involving considerable increases, which we me not prepared to  entertain. Therefore, so far as tariff  charges are concerned, we find ourselves unable to agree to the proposals.  Nevertheless, we appreciate the inipor  tance of the lead industry and realize  the desirability of encouraging it, and  we are willing to consider whether the  situation may be met by some readjust*  ' ment ofthe law respecting bounties on  lead. Further than this we are unable to go at presenj,."  The receipt of tlie above nltimation  as the result of the lead delegates' effort to secure an increased duty on  lead, quickened Mayor Rose of Nelson  10 send telegrams to all the important  cities and towns in 'British Columbia  last Tuesday, and requesting that protests be wired to Mr. Fielding and to  our member at Ottawa, W; A. Galliher.  Mayor Rumberger received . one of  the telegrams, and:on behalf of the  Hoard of Trade, after consultation with  a number of the merribers, telegraphed  an endorsement of the position of si!-*  ver-lead delegates to the two gentle  men above referred to.  STARTING ON  NEW FURNACES  'Boundary Mining Notes.  First Car Load Arrives at the  Granby Smelter.

Some of tbe Pecenl MeasaVes Considered at  tbe Legisiat-ire.  Tuesday the house voted unanimously for the bill verifying the cancellation  of the land grant of blocks 4,59,?" and  4.594 to the Columbia and Western  railway (G. P. R.) 'This i�� the matter  that has created so much controversy,  the land in question being valuable  coal and oil tracts in East Kootenay  on which hundreds of attempted locations have been made.,  A new railway, championed by R.  I.. Patterson, to be known as the British Columbia Northern & Mackenzie  Valley railway, is seeking incorporation  and government aid for building a net  work of 2,300 miles of railroad, largely  in the northern part of the province.  They have three proposals, as follows:  (1) 12,000 acres per mile; (2) Half  land and half cash, $5,000 and 5,000  acres per mile; (3) $3,000 and 7,000  acies per mile. Chicago capital is behind the plan.  Joseph Martin has been operated  upon at the hospital, and will not be  able to attend further sessions of this  legislature.    He will-have to lose a leg.  When the Granby Co. decided to install Nos. 3 and 4 furnaces at the smelter, something like a yeai arid a half  ego, and placed the order, it was not  thought there would be much delay in  getting it filled. But the great steel  strike in the east came on, and it was  months before the machinery was shipped and delivered. A short time ago  the order was placed for furnacesNos.  5 and 6, and already the first carload  of the machinery has arrived at Grand  Forks, and others are expected without  delay. 'I'he manufacturers are the  Allis-Chalmers Co., of Chicigo, who  made the other four blast furnaces for  this smelter. Supt. Hodges, of the  smelter, is arranging to have the work  of erec'ion started at once, and no  lime will be lost in placing the new  machinery in commission.  When all six furnaces are in operation at the Granby smelter these reduction works will have a daily capacity of  2,300 tons ol ore, all of which will be  furnished by tha company's mines here  in Phoenix camp. Now that the 6u-  drill air compressor is installed, there  will soon be no trouble about all the  power needed at the mines for getting  011I ore, even up to the rema'rkable tonnage of 5,00 tons per day,  Second Large Motor Arrives.  This week the second large electric  motor, for use in' driving the new air  compressor, arrived at Phoenix. This  shipment consists of three carloads.of  machinery. This motor is a duplicate  of the one that reached here two weeks  ago, and was manufactured by the  Westinghouse Electric and Manufac-  tuiing.Co., of Pittsburg, Pa. The  huge machines each have a capacity of  700 horse power, and stand 14 feet  high from the floor of the compressor  room when in running order. Electrician Lane was to have been here  early this week to take charge of the  erection, but was delayed by the work  on the new transformers being installed  at the smelter.  Thursday work, was resumed at the  Emma mine, and shipments are now  being made to the Trail smelter.  A tiifle short of 300 miners are now  employed at the Gianby rn|nes, the  force being gradually increased.    .  Duiing the month of March, the  coal strike month, the Mother Lode  mine 'shipped only 720 tons of ore.  Edwards and Morrison have driven  their tunnel on' the Blue Jay 185 feet,  and anticipate striking the ledge shortly.  The sampler at the Mother Lode  smelter was started this week, indicating tha1 the furnaces will be blown in  in a few days.  At the Sunset smelter the bricking  in of the new boilers {has been practically completed, and another week  should see two furnaces in blast.  The fourth furnace has not yet been  blown in at the Granby smelter, bui  probably will be placed in commission  in the course ol a week 61 ten doys.  The City View, near Greenwood,  was bonded last week from F.J. Firiu-  cane and Dr. Oppenheimer for $30,-  000 by Wm. Robertson^ who has begun  development.  It is expected that by the end . of  this week the miners will break through  in the No. 3 tunnel of the Granby  mines, making complete connections  with the Old Ironsides without going  down the shafts.  ASSESSMENT  FOR YEAR 1903  Our  City Assessor Makes It  Just $310,080.  COURT OF REVISION MEETS JUNE 1  Land /a Municipal Limits Is Figured si $188,���  70S, While Ihe Improvements Run up lo  $!2M7S-Owners Have Been Notified.  George R. Naden, of Greenwood,  has a mine in his back yard, his residence being located on the Barbara  mineral claim, which he recently leased  to five local miners, who are now actively developing it, thus lar with good  results.  D. J. Matheson, city assessor, has  made up his roll for the year 1903, has  reported the same to the council board,  and in this issue of the Pioneer will  be seen the formal notice that those  who wish to have changes made in  their assessment must send written notices ten days before the meeting ofthe  court of revision, which will be held  on Monday, June 1st, at 2 p. m., at  the office of ,the mayor, Baldwin block,  Dominion avenue. The assessor has  already sent notice to property owners  by mail.  The assessment roll, as made out by-  Mr. Matheson, totals up as follows, for  land and improvements, respectively:  ;   ,             ./'..Improvements  I.aud   Total.

The government will prim the evidence of the coionei's inquest at the  Keinie coal mine explosion of May 22,  1902.  Starling in Business.  Tnomas Brown, a merchant who has  been located in oandon for several  yeafs, arrived last Thursday, and as  soon as his stock arrives,'which is now  on the way, will start business here, in  the clothing lint*. He has secured a  central location, having leased the  store formerly occupied by A. P. McKenzie, in the Hardy-McKenzie block,  on Dominion avenue.  LATEST MINING SHARE Q  UOTATH  timer, [  )NS.

It was  the first visit made in three yeurs to  the properties whence he gets all that  ore he is reducing in such good shape,  and of course he found many improvements and changes that had been made  around the works in that time. While  here he was the guest of Win. Yolen  Williams, the superintendent, who took  pleasure in showing Mr. Hodges ovei  the propetties. In Grand Forks, Mr.  Hodges is getting ready for a big summer's lun at the smelter, and when the  two new furnaces are installed, a  month or two later, making six i�� all,  he will be calling for 15,060 or 16,000  tons of ore from the Granby mines per  week, and will be putting it through  the smelter in the same time, which is  more ore than all the mines of the  Boundary, have ever shipped in the  same time before.  Telluride ore, claimed to assay $3,-  140 per ton, has been found at a  depth of sixty feet in the shaft on the  R. Plutibus Unum claim, one of the  high grade properties near Greenwood  that has lately been under development  hy I). W. McVicar and'associates.  ���\t the Snowshoe the force of employees is gradually being increased  again, and as soon as the mine resumes  shipments to the Sunset smelter, about  the first of the month, the number will  be further augmented. Sinking on  the main three compartment incline  shaft is being continued.  J. E. McAllister, C. E., M. E.,  latetly assistant superintendent of the  Tennessee Copper Co.'s smelter at  Copperhill, Tenn., has been appointed  superintendent of the British Columbia  Copper Co.'s Mother Lode smelter at  Greenwood, and is ex pelted to assume  his new duties the 1st of May. He  succeeds Paul Johnson, under whose  direction the smelter was built.  Bernard Lequime, the sawmiller, is  building a steam scow to ply on Lake  Christina, for the puipose of towing  shingle bolts and saw logs from the upper end of the" lake to his sawmill at  the lower end, a distance of iS or 20  miles. This will make the second  steam craft On that beautiful lake.  Blanchard M. Sydney, of Anaheim,  California, is expected to arrive in  Gieenwood shortly, to fill the position  ofassayerand chemist at the B. C.  Copper company's smelter, Greenwood,  in place of Gustave Sundberg, who is  now at Sand Point, Idaho, where Paul  Johnson will have charge of building a  new smeiter for ihe Pan Handle Mining Co.  Hot Air Railway Wants to Sell Out.  Once again it is stated that the C.  P. K. is getting ready to buy the Hot  Air or Kettle Valley railway, which  runs to Republic from Grand Forks, a  distance of 35 miles. Negotiations  are now said to be pending, and a transfer is likely to take place in a short  time. 'I'he Hot Air line was opened  just a year ago, with a great flouiish of  trumpets, before the rails were within  five miles of Republic, but since the  Great Northern reached Republic, a  little later, the Hot Air line has not  had much business. Tracy W. Holland, formerly mayor of Grand Forks,  was the chief promotor of the Hot Air  line, and duiing the building it is asserted that several -persons made big  money. The line, which was* financed  by Toronto capital, has never been p  commercial success, and if the C.P.R.  takes it in, it may be extended to Spokane.  Methodist Quarterly Meeting.  The quartet ly meeting of the local  Methodist church was held Thursday  evening, it being the last session before  the conference, which will be held at  Victoria this year on the 14th of May.  Rev. J. H. White, of Nelson, superintendent of missions, and Rev. J. D. P.  Knox, of Greenwood, were present at  the gathering, and plans were made for  the work for the ensuing year. The  decision was arrived at to ask conference to call T. Green, IL A., who has.  served tbe local church for the last  yeai.tosend him" back io Phoenix.  C. W. Greer was elected delegate to  the quarterly meeting lo be held at  Grand Forks, May 6.  Treasurer Wooster, of the Granby  Co., spent last Sunday in the city.  S. S. Hayes, representing the Nelson  Daily News, was a visitor here yestet-  day.  Alderman Joe Manly has located the  Copper Girl mineral claim near Grand  Forks.  Dance and Raffle.  The Catholic Ladies' Aid have decided to give a dance and raffle, with  refreshments, at Miners' Union hall,  Thursday evening, June 11,  Very little business was transacted at  this week's meeting ol the city council,  Dr. Schon being appointed health officer and a few small bills were ordered  paid.  It is said that assays made from  pieces ol the copper wire used in the  high tension electric line between Cascade and Phoenix give values of $3 per  ton in silver.  New Denver had another , visitation  from fire last Tuesday, when the Clever  block went up in flames, entailing a  loss ot $25,000. 'The fire was thought  to be of incendiary origin.

This  company owns the Sunset group of  mines-arid the Sunset smelter at Boundary Falls, the latter of which is being  extensively enlarged.      One notable  feature of the statement of President  MelvilleJis that he expects the company  Jo shortly begin the payment ot quarterly dividends at the rate of,} per cent  .each,-and that with plenty of coke for  , the smelter,, which is now assured, the  company can earn profits at the rate of  $20,000 per month.  Senator Tenipleman, when in Phoenix last summer, was shown the ptess-  ing need of a sub-customs office here,  and said it was a simple matter to have  it so ordeied. Since then, howevei,  since he has himself been appointed a  cabinet minister, he appeal s to have  forgotten about the matter. For the  convenience of business men the need  is now gieater than ever. It is the  moie annoying because the additional  cost to the customs depaitrnent of supplying the need is so small that it will  not be felt.

Lowery, of the New Denvei  Ledge, who is about to tempt foilune  once more by staiting another weekly  at Vancouver, announces that he will  begin suit shortly against delinquent  subset ibers. Thai's not a bad idea.  Now, if the lawyeis could induce the  balance of the editors to do likewise,  blue papers would be as thick as leaves  in Vallambiosa.and most of the knights  of the paste pot and <xissors could lake  a trip to Europe next winter.  ,- All this is pleasant reading, not only  to the shareholders of the Montreal &  Boston Copper Company, but to residents and business men generally  throughout the'Boundary and British  Columbia. ��� Large tonnage is a good  thing, but after all, the actual profits  are what count with the investing public.  That was a narrow squeak that the  Prior government had at Victoiia last  week, when it took the speaker's' vote  to carry on *i division. Some one recently asked where Smith Cuius had  been. It was his resolution that  bi ought the matter \ip and very nearly  defeated the government.  It is a sad state of affairs when the  C. P. R. finds itself shoit of cars to  bring the people out west. Apparently  thousands have been heeding Horace  Greeley's advice.  ������������������������*���������������>������������������������>������>�������������*  ������������������ *����������**���������>*��� ���*����������-*��������>���*>  B. G MINING  *���-����������-��*����������>* *-�����-���������������-������-��-  From statements attributed recently  to S. H: C. Miner, it is next to certain  that the Granby Consolidated, of which  he is the president, will also, if all goes  well, begin the distribution of dividends  out of profits this season. As the  Granby Co. is by far the largest and  most important mining concern in the  Boundary, not only having the greatest  ore-bodies known in the Boundary and  having done the greatest amount of  work, development and shipped the  .largest amount of ore, but being the  strongest beyond all question financially, the starting of the dividend era will  be an event that cannot fail to have a  far reaching influence for the lasting  good of this district, at home and  abroad.  But for untoward events, with which  every person in the Roundary is fa  miliar, and for which no one interested is responsible,  the Granby   Co.  would probably even now be giving returns to the shareholders upon the large  amounts already invested.    Its movements are being watched in London,  Boston, New York, Montreal and other  financial centers, and  nothing more  beneficial could happen to the Bound  ary than the beginning ofthe payments  ef dividend" out of profits by  this  company.  It is also an open  secret that Mr.  George S. Waterlow,  vice-chairman of  the Snowshoe corporation, hopes very  . .strongly that his company may also be  placed in the profit sharing column  ,  some time this year, and most certain-  , ly events point to that conclusion, so  that it is not unreasonable to look forward to.  L  By June 1 the Payne expects to  have its zinc roaster in operation.  So far this year Slocan mines have  shipped a little under 5,000 tons of ore.  The concentration mill ofthe Le Roi  No. 2 is on its way out from England.  The Oyster-Criterion group in the  Lardeau will erect -a tramway this  spring.  The Kootenay mine at Rossland has  contracted to ship 50 tons daily to the  Trail smelter.  Rich ore is being shipped from the  Ivanhoe, Slocan, samples running as  high as 1,500 ozs  Last week Rossland mines sent out  5,700 tons of ore, making a total of  106,091 tons for this year.  Within another week two more Rossland niines are expected to be added  to the shipping list���the White Bear  and Kootenay.  The affairs of the Metropolitan Min-  ing'Company who have been operating  the famous Triune mine 'in the Lardeau have passed under new management.  The property of the Cherry Creek  Gold Mining Co. in File Valley is said  to be turning out good. The tunnel  is in 150 feet and the ore runs from  $20 to $600 per ton. 'I his is Jim  Wardnei's latest venture.  "It is an outrage on the smelting industry in the Kootenays and Boundary  that the Crow's Nest Coal Company  should have advanced the price of coke  again," said Walter H. Aldridge, general manager of the Canadian Smelting  Works, of Trail, the other day.  It is common repott that the com  pany is thinking of making a visit to  Phoenix in the near ftituie, and notwithstanding the remaiks of the genial  mayor, who by the way is said to he  one of the best executives Giand Folks  has evei had, they will doubtless diaw  a full house in the dtnnei bucket town.  The Pioueei will not find it needful  to cany out its threat of last week to  piint on wall papei, blown paper, ot  any other old kind, as, shoitly after the  papei was issued last Saturday, this  office was notified that the long delayed shipment had finally amved fiom  Toronto.     Who says that  it does not  pay to advertise.  �����  Heie is a question legarding the  mineiallaw. Suppose a erown-grant-  ed mineial claim on which all dues  and taxes had been paid belonged to  an incoipoiaied company which failed  to take out its company license. Who  owns the claim? By tailing to take  Out its license the company ceases to  exist.; theiel'oie the claim can no longer be the propeity of the company. As  ihe claim is crown granted it cannot  11111 out. As long as the taxes are paid  or there is sufficient woik recorded to  entitle il to exemption the claim cat -  not be sold or lapse to the ciown.  ���M  The Greenwood Board of Trade is  a live institution, and is doing good  woik for that place, just as the I'hoenix Board of Trade has done good service for.this city in the past. But  the Gieenwood oiganizaiiun will make  a mistake if it spends its dollars on  aiticles printed in outside papers. The  same amount of cash, spent judiciously  with the local printer, can undoubtedly be made to give far greater returns,  dollar for dollar, if a committee that  is familiar with these matters1 has the  handling of the appropiiation.  Strikes nowadays seem to be in the  very air ��� all over Canada and the  United States���and even theeJitonnl  profession is afflicted with the mania,  if reports are to be believed. The  latest in this line is that the editor ot  the Grand Forks News-Gazette went  out on strike last week, and after holding out for two or three days, with publication day staling them in the face  the management capitulated, and peace  once more reigns in the office of the  great family joui rial of the Smelter City.  ���11  Spring has come.

"i'he chief lesult of the action ofthe  legislature of Biitish Columbia in repealing the two per cent tax on mines  in the province' will lie that a large  amount of capital will be invested in  the province," was the remark made by  i.v H. C.Jvliner, president of the Granby Consolidated company in Montreal  recently, which along with other mining companies has been opposed to  the lax.', "American capitalists, when  they found out how the tax'was levied)  absolutely refused to put their money  into any of the projects in the province. Now considerable Ei glisli and  American capital..should find 'heir way  into the country. i'he companies  have no objection 10 paying a fair tax,  but they want jt leyied jn a way that  will not affect their labprand transport  tation, as has been the case up to the  present."

Some years ago at a Mardl Gran ball  at the Hopkins Institute In San Francisco, a man, masked, approached a  woman, masked, and asked her for a  dance, aa Is considered right and proper at Mardl Gras. "But I don't know  you, sir." said the lady In her most Icy  tone. "Well, I'm tnkln-j as blgr a risk  as you are," retorted the man.,  A tender-hearted youth was once  present at an Oxford supper, where the  fathers of those assembled were being  roundly abuaed for their parsimony in  supplying the demands of their,4sons.  At, last, after having long kept silence,  he lifted up his voice In mild protest.  "After'oil, gentlemen," he said, "let us  remember that they are our tellow-  ereatures."  The ChatRworth (Ont.) "News" says:  "A good joke Is told on a Chatsworth  young man Who went to Owen Sound  one day last week and dropped into Dr.  Lang's office to be vaccinated. The  doctor asked him If he had ever been  vaccinated before and he replied: Tvo  been vaccinated twice and baptize J  three times and neither one of them  took.' The doctor hesitated, but finally  concluded to vaccinate him, and Judging from the way he holds his arm the  third vaccination. 'took,' even If tha  third baptism didn't."  Jacob A. mis tells of an Irish teamster who went to the priest in a fright;  he had seen a ghost on the church wall ;  as he passed It In the night. "And what  was it like?" asked the priest. "It was  like nothing so much as a big ass,"  said Patrick, wild-eyed. "Go homo,  Pat! and be easy," replied the priest,  Boothlnglyi "you've only seen your own  shadow."  Thomas Bailey Aldrlch once received  a pathetic letter In a feminine hand announcing the death of a little daughter  and asking If he would not send In his  own handwriting a verse or two from  "Bable Bell" to assuage the grief of "  the household. Aldrlch sent the whole  poem, and not long after saw It displayed in the shop of an autograph  dealer, with a good, round price attached thereto.  Senator Cullorn of Illinois was asked  by a correspondent why the Committee  on Foreign Relations had enjoined secrecy on the text of the new treaty  with Great Britain, when" the text of  the treaty was printed in all the morn-,  ing papers. "Just bo, Just so," said th��?  senator; "that's the reason the injunction of secrecy was placed upon the  treaty. We knew that if we made ,It  public at once not a paper In the country would print Its full text." '"'*  During his visit to: New York Thackeray was very much attracted by the  beauty and 'brilliancy of a Miss B., and,  In accordance with .foreign custom,  made a morning call, when she did not  expect anyone., Hearing some talking  In the lower hall, she leaned over the  banisters and asked the servant who It  was. "It's Mr. Thackeray, ma'am."  "Oh, damn Thackeray!" replied Miss B.  "No," ��ald Thackeray, who coiild not  but hear the remark, "It's not Mlsther  O'Dam Thackeray, but Mr. Makepeace  Thackeray." And, with a laugh, Miss  B. came down.   '..  The venerable Mr. ��������� believed unqualifiedly In Boston," as not the hub  only, but the forward wheels also, of  the universe. The excellent old gentleman, having confessed to L. G. that he  had never found time, during his busy  life, to read Shakespeare, was advised  to do so during'the winter, then approaching. In the spring G. called on  the estimable citizen, ' and', casually  asked if he had: read any of the-play?  during the season just passed. "Tea,"  he replied, "he had read them all." "Do  you like them?" ventured G., feeling his  way cautiously to an opinion. "Like  them!" replied the old man, with effusive ardor; "that Is not the word,  sir! They are glorious, sir; far beyond  my expectation, sir! . There are not  twenty men In Boston, sir, who could  have written those plays!"  Lord John (Russell) with a curious  artlesaness of disposition which made  It impossible for him to feign a cordiality he did not feel, united an astonishing want of tact. Once, at a concert  at Buckingham Palace, he was seen to  get up suddenly, turn his back on the  Duchess of Sutherland, by whom" he  had been sitting, walk to tbe remotest  part of the room, and sit down by the  Duchess ot Inverness. When questioned  afterwards as to the cause of his unceremonious -move, which had the look  of a quarrel, he said: "I could not have  sat any longer by that great fire; I  should have fainted." "Oh, that was a  very good reason for moving; but I hope  you told the Duchess of Sutherland  why you left her." "Well���no. I don't  think I did that. But I told the Duchess of Inverness why I came and sat  by her."  The Use of the Word " Lady."  It is said that It is coming to be the  fashion again to use the word "lady,"  and that the word "party" is also In  better favor. For some years modish  persons have called ladles "women,"  and parties "functions." There was  some excuse for the former substitution  because "lady" was worked to death,  and so misused as to make It ridiculous. But vague as Its meaning is. It  has a meaning (pr meanings), to the  conveyance of which it is Indispensable,  and the folks who have dismissed It  from their vocabularies have not been  persons of much philological discernment.  The use of "function" for "party" has  been a mere fad that must have started  as a pleasantry and gradually became  a habit. It makes It possible to -speak  of n row at a ball as a "functional disorder"; but even that doesn't warrant  Its vogue. It Is a poor, borrowed, anglicized word, which the British-American language doesn't need.  Don't you want to read the news of  the day while it is news?

"Well," said  the cabman, "you can just take it back.  There's nine people In the first four  chapters who hired cabs, and each of  'em, when he got 'out, 'flung his purse  to the driver.'
