Thoy sit on the sidewalk discussing  nothing at nil with drunken gravity,  they argue the point with n l.-nnpost or  n dog, they howl out their besotted  dt'liance of things iu general to the  empty air, but. no mutter what the  occasion the stream of blasphemy and  obscenity rolls almost unceasingly  jilting. There* is scarcely an hour of  the diiy or night when a decent woman  cun walk from one end to the other of  Front street without having her cars  polluted with some outburst of filth  and profanity. There are plenty of  men, who seem to think that after imbibing half a dozen drinks of whiskey,  they -are licensed to commit thc*se  verbal assaults on common decency.  The impunity with which they are allowed to do so would lead one to suppose that they must be right. Unless  a man is drunk or ugly he may utter  his filth and blasphemy without fear  of molestation by the police. As a  matter of fact he is committing a far  greater offence against every social  tind moral law, except perhaps the  police code, than if he was breaking all  the glass in a saloon or rolling on the  sidewalk in an imbecile attempt to  pummel one one of his companions in  intoxication. It is offence, which, if  only iu consideration of the women  and children, should be~sternly and  promptly visited with - the utmost  rigor of the law.  UNDER PROVIDENCE.  ������ T. NOXON.

Scarcely had  the   public  recovered  from lhe shock of beholding two Mich  staunch   supporters   of  the party of  political purity as Mr. Cameron, ALP.,  and Mi*. AlcGillicuddy,  editor  of   the  Godcrich    Times    bespattering   cae-h  other with  charges of-nepotism  and  ollice hunting, when   Mr.  King,  who  was recently appointed--.to a   position  in, the "newly   created"' Immigration  Bureau at Winnipeg,  and still   more  recently removed from, the   job.  provides them with another political sensation.     According    to  Mr.   Sifton's  statement in making the,appointment  King  ''was appointed".by   me  solely  and entirely for what I'.believe to  be  his peculiar fitness 'for .the duties  of  his, office."    According to Mr. King  there were other coiisiflera lions.    In  fact if Mr. King owed Ills job in  the  Immigration   Btnean   to   Mr. Sifton,  Mr. Sifton  "under providence"  owes  his position as Minister of the Interior,  in great measure lo Mr. King "who by  the judicious management of the entire South Manitoba press formed the  public sentiment in AIiv Sifton's favor,  .which ultimately ensured his election  by acclamation."   To  another gentleman called Speers,- "who held the position of Liberal candidate so long, until  on his resignation, there was no  time  for another to be supplied!" Jlr. Sifton,  "under providence;" according to Mr.  King,   also   partly   owes  his present  exalted position.     Curiously *cnotigh  this Mr. Speers has since' tho dec-lion  been   apointed    "under    providence"  im in ignition   agent  at  Brandon,   no  no doubt solely and entirely for what  Mr. Sifton believed to bu his peculiar  fitness  for' the  duties  of  the  ollice  The Grit providence has a large number of rather oiu'io'us'.mutlers*  to   answer for. - But Mr. King could not get  on with Mr. AlcCrea*ry,_jvho ,wns also  doubtless  appointed- ccMnmissioner of  the new immigration -Jb'tireau  "under  providence" on account?of his peculiar  fitness for lhe duties of".the-office,,but  who according to- MrvKing "neither  knew what to do.hiui~vIf'nor,could he,  direct    others,     while:   of.     foreign  languages  he, was   totally   ignorant,  having no exp(erience'-but in   a small  office as general utility lawyer."   Mr.  King,   however,   allows    that    Commissioner McCreary was equal  to.the  occasion at one critical juncture.   He  had charged the government with $5  a day whilst travelling, in addition  to  his    Pullman    expenses   and   meals,  which   amount'- the   deputy, minister  "under - providence" of  the Interior,  Mr. Jas. A Smart, did not think would  passthe* Auditor  General;   a, gehtle-  Hii1uir"wlii_r"lTappily��������� feir  this   country  does not owe his appointment,  under  the Grit providence, to  Mr.. Sifton's  peculiar notions of  official   capacity.  After a fortnight's cogitation over the  returned accounts, the commissioner,  who "did it all   himself," .made- out  another    detailed     statement   "with  different   items   but   with, the  same  total."     Commissioner    McCreary   is  solid.    If a feat of that k'nd-does not  "under providence" entitle a 'staunch  supporter of the government of political purity to a permanent billet, nothing-will.  The "vigorous immigration policy"  promised the country"by the Liberal  party before the last election has  apparently resolved itself.into a vigorous appointment ot good 'Grits to a  number of new immigration bureaus  aud agencies and there stopped. Alf.  Jury, labor agitator and master tailor  of Toronto has gone to tell farmei-s in  England about the ngricultuial resources of Ontario and Manitoba. Mi-.  Devlin took a change of air and occupation from trying ineffectually to  swallow the sunny settlement of the  school question, in persuading the  inhabitant" of the Emerald Isle to try  immigration to the Northwest ns a  remedy for their injuriesand injustices.  Mr. Sheppard i.s drawing a salary  primarily for having dese.ited the  wicked Tory party, secondly for doing  something connected with immigration  in South America, thu exact nature of  which has not hitherto been very  clearly explained. Lord Aberdeen's  butler is giving, at the expense of the  people of Canada, the results of his  observations on the resources. and  prospecls of the Northwest and Manitoba from the hind end of his lordship's  special car to the inhabitants of his  native home in Scotland. AU through  the Northwest and Manitoba Grit  partisans have been appointed to jobs  by Mr. Sifton and province, some of  which were made to order, and others  rendered available by the dismissal of  officials, who were giving entire satisfaction to the public in the discharge  of their duties. The only visible result  of all  this vigor has been the totally  unexpected and entirely unappreciated  arrival in Canada in large numbers of  a kind of savages from Central Europe  called Gallii-iaus. Iu point of fact the  vigorous immigration policy has so fat*  been a dismal failtue, and the sidelight thrown by Mr. King on the inner  workings of lhe Manitoba Im migration  Bureau goes a very long way lo explain  why. When the chief occupation for  one whole fortnight of the head of the  bureau was to cover up his tracks in  defrauding the>,department eiut of five  dollars a day for expenses on a trip to  Ottawa, there is small reason for wonder why this newly established bureau  gives no adequate value to the people  of Canada for the money expended on  its support. And as long as Mr, Sif-  ton'snotionof "peculiarfllness" "under  providence"-'for appointment to ollice,  is that the appointee rendered him  personally some more or less dubious  and dirty service in helpiughis election  so long will it be hopeless for Canadians to expect to receive any adequate  seivice for the salaries which they  draw and tei wliich they are entitled*,  and the other little rake oils, which  they alio draw, if providence permits  anil the Auditor General nod's, without being entitled at all.  THOMSON'S . LANDING  The Gold Discovery on McDugal Creek  ���������Eight Feet of Carbonates on Mohawk Creek���������The Ruby Silver Group  on 12 Mile Creek���������Social and Bus-  ness Items. ��������� ���������* .  From Our Own Correspondent.  Thomson's Landing, Sept. 9.���������Joe  Jerouse and Billy Jerard have located  a number of very promising looking  claims on Mohawk creek, a tributary  of Pool creek. They are reported to  have over 8 feet of carbonates worth  over $200 per ton. In fact the mountain is dc*scribed-us a muss of carbonates. ' ,  Win. Nutter has just came in from  McDngal creek. He reports that they  are now down 9 feet, and that the pay  streak is now 30 inches wide.mil seems  to improve as depth is attained. They  have sent oufmore samples-lor assay.  A gold strike was,reported to have;  been made near the Landing." The  ore is similar to that on "Gainer creek  with one trifling difference. The gold  in the Gainer creek, ore is worth over  $1,100 to the ton while there is only  from a trace to a few dollars in the  new find. Parties purchasing claims  should be careful and have them examined before purling with their  money.  Geo. Whitson and J. Ferris while  doing development work, on the  Mystery in Galena Bay Pass struck. 4  feet of good concentrating ore- which  carries $6 iu gold.  ���������The Silver Cup is to coinmence-ship-  ping on Monday.  The Lade Bros, shipped two wagon  loads of gold ore last week, which has  been sampled at Kaslo, and went over  $1,100 to the Ion.  Dan Keen and<*a few men are repairing the* road to the deep water landing.  The Thomson Landing Jockey Club  will hold its next annual meeting at  the Exchange on the 25th of this  month.  It is reported that Jlr. T. W. Grahame is going to London, Eng., to  organize a company anel secure the  capital necessary to work the McDugal creek gold mines.  Joe Bellway and C. Wadsworth  madu a rich strike and located 5 claims  on 12 Mile creek, a tributary of Fish  creek. The lead is 12 feet wiile and  lias 3 feet of shipping galena on the  surface and also carries some gold.  This group of claims is to be known as  the Ituby Silver Group.  One of our handsome young business  men is soon going to California on* a  visit. It. is reported that ho will return in double harness.  Alessrs. Beaton and Thomson have  moved into their new 'residence on  Grandview Hill.  The Spokane Fair.  L. K. Armstrong, who is in charge  of the mineial exhibit at the fair, says  he will have no trouble getting exhibits this year. His trouble fiom now  on will be to know what to do with all  the specimens that are .sent. People  in all the camps are promising to senel  good specimens of what their section  of the country can produce. Some of  the camps that are fart.heil away will  have as large and as fine exhibits as  any.  "There will be a fine exhibit from  Revelstoke and the Big Bend of the  Columbia," said Professor Armstrong  this morning. "The Triune mine alone  will furnish a fine display of ore and  the entire section will make up an exhibit of gold that will be of great value.  Other camps near ami far propose to  do the same thing.  "The Canadian Pacific has agreed to  transport all exhibits over their lines  free of charge. The; United States  treasury department is also working  for us and has agreed to admit all exhibits free of charge. There; will be  no trouble about getting a good mineral exhibit this year."���������Spokane  Chronirle.  [We have thought over everything  but the "Triune mint''' has us fairly  outclassed.���������Ed. Herald.!  SHOT   IN   THE   ANKLE  Constable    Page   Wings   an   Escaping  Prisoner with a Revolver  On Wednesday evening a man  named Murphy got his supper .-it the  Union hotel anel tendered the proprietor two bits in payment. Alt'. H.  A. Brown, who litis recently been victimized more than once by impecunious .strangers -standing -treat and  telling him to "mark it up on ice*,"  en- getting meals and then impolitely  and forcibly requesting him to go  somewhere else for the money, demanded the full payment of 50 cents,  on which Alurphy became abusive  and Air. Brown first oidered him out  of the house and then took holel of  him to put him out. In the struggle,  which went on first in the office and  then on the verandah, Murphy struck  Brown with something, which is supposed tei be a bottle, and cut his cheek  pretty badly. While they were still  struggling constable Page came by on  a rig on his way to catch a freight for  Albert Canyon. Ho jumped out and  arrested Murphy, but as his handcuffs  were iu his valise, did not put them on  his prisoner. Page got his man along  all right as far as the corner of Petti-  piecc'o livery stable, when Alurphy  broke from him and ran "towards-the  bush, saying, "I guess I won't go any  further with you." Page culled to him  to stop two or three .times, and then  fired a revolver which he had with  him, more with the intention of bringing the fugitive'to a standstill than  anything else. The shoe took effect  on Murphy's ankle and brought him  down. He was taken to the hospital  and lay there one night, being re-  nioved.to the jail next day.  The above is the official���������and as far  as the HeiiaIjD knows accurate���������account' of au occurrence which has  occasioned a good deal' of talk and  feeling in town. The Hekald fully  recognizes the fact that law and order  must be maintained, and that' considerable promptness and clutermina*  tion is necessary to enable the.sn.aU  handful of'police provided by the-pro-  vince to-control the elements of disorder latent in Kootenay. At ���������the  same time revolvers, even in the hands  of a constable, are .ugly things to  which resort should only be made in a  bust extremity. Their use merely to  scare a prisoner is not to be recommended. One can hardly help thinking  that it was more by good luck than  good management that Alurphy did  not get the bullet in'some part of his  body" where the injury might have  been a good deal more serious, if not  fatiTIT^-^rany^ti^tlier-HEitALD pre-  fers to suspend any judgment on the  matte'- until the case has been fully  ventilated   in   the, police   court  and  A POINT FOR SILVER  BANK OF- ENGLAND WILL HOLD  ONE-FIFTH IN SILVER.' -, ."

The Steamer Nakusp  Aground  at  the  Mouth of the Kootenay.  On Tuesday evening last about dusk  a serious nccitlent happened to the s. s.  Nakusp that may for a time somewhat  disorganize the lake service of the C.  P. It. Co.. which has worked throughout the summer without a hitch. The  Nakusp was Hearing Hudson in charge  of Captain Gore and had passed the  mouth of the Kootenay river when iu  the rapids she unexpectedly slewed olf  to starboard, and becoming unmunge  able took the ground. Efforts to get  her olf were unsuccessful. She is  lying on an even keel, and  since she toeik the ground the  water has fallen about six inches.  There is little or no cargo on board  and as a consequence no relief can be  hail.by lightening lier. It appeal's to  be a case of cither launching her again  in a particiilarlv difficult place or of  waiting six months for the next high  water to take her off. Capt. Gore the  company's superintendent is now in  charge and every effort will be made  to get the Nakiu-p afloat. Her passengers came up on tbe s. s. Kootenay  tind were eloepient in praise^ of tbe  courteous treatment they received during their compulsory detention.  Tlie Nakusp i.s in 110 sort of danger  where she lies and in the meantime  the s. -s. Lytton that recently nu.de  the trip into the Big Benel is taking  her place. The new fast steamer  "Itos.sl.-ind" now building at Xakusp is  expected to be launched in about two  months time. Her engines are now  being fitted in her. She will lie the  fastest steamer on the lakes and will  make the round trip between Arrowhead and Rolison daily.  'A Visit to the Public School.

The Lanark Mine  Wild rumors have been floating  round town for the last week that the *  "Lanark mine had petered out," and ;  that they were packing up all the machinery with the intention of shipping  it. There is no truth in these reports.  The new superintendent, Air. Moynell, "  is opening up new ground "exactly as  the Herald informed its readers-  some weeks ago that it was his intention to do. There is no doubt the  mine has been badly mishandled, but  plenty of ore could be got even now  without much trouble by sinking in  the tunnel. There are as a matter of  fact over 20 men now employed, some  uf whom are doing fiesh development  work which ���������will eventuallv render  accessible larger bodies of "ore than  ever. The mistake made hitherto has  been that this new development work  bas been neglected. There will be an- -  other meeting of the directors at  Laurie as soon as the partv return  from their trip through the Lardeau.,  which will be. it is expected, by this  afternoon's train. ��������� '���������lAM*a*.+.������lxr~Ki\**'<  ���������*j**-\.rt'~J **"'^"JSVS^vt ^"tV.'^^i'U-.&y^  >*ut������g>* ���������t*vw ���������Wf*tWt+ ---"������������������  38.  s.*  it.  il.

The Liberal Owen Sound Sun  believes that in many respects the  Laurier government is worthy of  the support and confidence of  intelligent citizens. But while  freely admitting the government's  virtues, it in common with many  Reform papers i9 of opinion that  there is grave danger of the  Liberal party running into the  very same vices as their predecessors were guilty of. Recent  events make the present an  opportune moment, if there ever  was one in the history of Canada,  for the untrammelled, free and  independent press to speak  out in protest against corruption,  extravagance, place-hunting and  low politic il i-ic-is in high places.  Fortunately for the Liberal party,  adds the Sun, and fortunately for  the country at large- there are  papers which cannot bo muzzled���������  which are determined to tell tbe  truth and speak their mind no  matter what the consequences.  One of these papers is the Sirncoe  Reformer, another is the Goderich  Signal, and still a third is the  Dundas True Banner, all of which  are vigorously lecturing the  leaders of their party.  Next month we will have a talk with you about general  Dry Goods  Something else you all want to hear about, which is  Carpets  Stores at Revelstoke Station, Revelstoke, Trout Lake City and Ferguson  ON A SHAET OF LIGHT  SOUND  TRANSMITTED    ALONG    AN  INTANGIBLE WIRE.  A feature of politics is the passing away of the Patron sentiment  whicli a couple of years ago  aroused a large portion of the  electorate. If the Patrons were in  earnest they ought to be on deck  _protesting^a~ainst_th~_e"traya-y  gance of the Liberals. Their movement, however, was not altogether  in vain. It served a good purpose  in many ways, not least in moderating party opinion and bringing  the parties closer together. The  general policy of the present government differs little from that of  its predecessor.  The Edmonton Bulletin points  out that today the government  "is paying as miic-: to the Indian  packers oE police and government  official supplies across the Chilcoot  Pass as would cut a horse and  cattle trail all the way from  Edmonton to the Clondike, and  make Canada independent of tbe  United States in the matter of the  transport at least of its troops and  government officials." Waking up  a government is a slow proces~,  but a few considerations like this  ought to open their eyes.  The Itcinarliablo Invention of a Dolicute  Instrument "Which Transmits Speech  '-Clirougli a Sunbeam���������May Knuble Us  to Hear tlio Music of llio Spheres.  Imagine making one's voice heard on  another plauet! To be-.ir the actual words  nnd tones of beings���������i������ they exist ami  have speech aud reason���������who are separated lrom us- by millions of miles of  empty space! There is iiotliing, probably, which to Uie ordinary man woulel  seem more hopelessly impossible than  this. To those who have some, knowledge of science the difficulty would seem  even more insuperable. Sound is the  vibration of air; in a vacuum" silence  roijrns forever. If lifted above the atmosphere, the wildest clangor o������ bells  would be stilled, . the heaviest cannon  would hurl its bolt without a whisper.  How, then, is it conceivable that any  sound should ever be carried tbroush tlie  interstellar void?  How signals might be transmitted to  the eye���������from Wars,' for example, if  creatures of suflicient intelligence dwell  there���������is easily understood. But sound���������  that is eiuite another matter.  Yet science hn-s solved the problem.  This does not mean that apparatus of  sufficient power and sensitiveness have  actually been constructed: the difficulties  In the way of an experiment on a scale  of such magnitude are too formidable,  and tbe cost would be ruinous.-  -���������But-" tin. -moans-have��������� boen-fonnd;���������tJic  impossibility, has vanished: the remainder of the problem is more mechanical de*-  tail. Just as the telescope m-iy conceivably be perfected until wc can -sc_e the*  minutest objocti anel look the Martian,  if he is there, in the face, so, by tho  perfecting of this new sort of telesco-;v\  we m-ny h(*ar his words if he has the  gift of spec-ch.  Por tlie instrument by which all this  is to be accomplished may very properly  be called a telescope���������but with a difference. Of course, no wiri������s can eve*r be  stretched from .tlio earth to n flying  planet. There is but one possible medium.  It is propositi to telephone along the  tbvs of a shaft of light.  It has not only .been proposed; it litis  already hevn done*, thoit-rh not yet  tliroiurh interplanet.ijy distance-".. P.ut if  light can curry .w'.iitnl for a single milp it  can carry it to the* enelt of the* uiiivcr������.\  anti thi������ perhn,pi is rc-nlly no moro wonderful than the* .fact that throiich light,  by mc*tiivs  of  the Rpootro-srope^,  \v<*    run  when exposed to eiifftisptl daylight showed a rcRrst'.uiee of only GOO ohms.  Now when one talks tlirongh an ordinary tele-phono tnuiRniitter his voi'.-o  causes n I bin sheet iron diaphragm to  vibrate back and forth, and this vibration causes a corresponding variation in presstne upon a pie_e of carbon  which forms part of. nn electric ch-ouir.  Thus the coniluciivity of the circuit is  varied, a Mil what is called an undulating  current results. Uie variations in strength  corresponding exactly to the cniuproc-  sicus !i..>il rarefactions of the air produced by-Mlie sound waves.  A.t the other end or llie line this varying current oSjCleclricily is niaelc to p.-i=-s  through Uie cir'."sP.r tin electric lnnznct.

In evoking  the enthusiasm of the masses he  more nearly approaches Sir John  Macdonald than any living  Canadian statesman.  OGILVIE'S OPINION  Being asked as to the likelihood of  the Govtmment adopting the measure  levyine a tribute of 20 per cent, more  or less upon the gold taken out, Mr.  Ogilvie said he did not believe the  report.  "I have-been called to Ottawa on  business that is wholly incompatible  with anv such policy," he said. "Such  a course would put an immediate check  upon the developmentof the country���������  stop it entirely, perhaps���������and the development o������ the resources of the  country is the first desire of the Government," said Mr. Ogiivi".

After tbe man who gets it littli* day off

he decides to spend bis next holiday on

Our liiaii is Kivt-ii e-vcry position in the I

lOitson of the fact that in bis youth lie*

the* ball grounds, he is oom-iikM-etl nn ;ic-
cc-bsion by ninny. But the younger men
have their doubts, so lie is shirtod along
until right Held is settled upon as his
sphere of action. He calls it, being a
general crank, "the right garden."
Of course, the team hires u pitcher, us
���nil coinnicrci.il clubs do. It is not to be
~-.pcct.r-d that u good pitcher woulel be
in the employ of tiny store regul.u-ly.
That was never known to happen. So
thoy hire a "lot" player, who never did
(i day's work in his life, and, if he has
luck, never will. The catcher is supposed to be all right. Ho knows bow
tho tiling is done, and ho lias the regulation mask, chest protector, padded trousers, false calves and that mammoth leather receptacle cnllcd  a en teller'*, plow.
jVII kinds anel conditions ot* men play
the bases. None of them have suits of
the regulation kind. A few have bievcle
togs nntl promise to trot them out'for
field service. Our man wears nn old
suit of clothes and a yachting cap. Away
clown in bis heart he thinks ho ought
to play first biuse because of his height
nnd reach, but ho accepts right "garden"
r.nd secretly hopes that he will be called
to the infield before the game is  over.
I'ho day for tlie g-ame comes at last.
xVc sav "at last," because when a commercial house lias a challenge to attend
to the hours Intervening between the
challenge and tho game seem like days
���rati the minutes like hours, ""our^oiit of

I hon the game is off for good because
neither side takes chances with the '���hoodoo" crowd again. They each challenge
some, other nine and it rains anyway.

teoth sides turned up. This is most unusual with commercial nines. There
wore eleven from each house.   The four
- substitutes started in to practice after
that fashion which, in tho vernacular, i.s
iijsicl to "beat the band." .Tbov"wantod
to be asked to "get in the game." So
they threw,  and ran.  and    batted, and
.(���pr-Uned tondons. and did lots of things.
One of the young men who arc always
to be found banging around waiting tu
"lK> asked, for a S2 consideration, to
cimpire games, was pressed into service.
X~e*' promptly yelled. "Play ball!*' and
e'ontideel to one of liis kind, in a stage
whisper, that the two "lobster" nines
would probably have to finish up with
lanterns. Of course the commercial men
pretended not to hear this, tind the game
began. Our man went out into "right
pardon" and waited, in what he considered the correct attitude, for something to conic his way. Nothing did,
'"tha*; innhu/. for. after various good and
bad plays, all in the infioltl, his nine'
put out the other fellows, and wont to
*    bat.
Now our man thought that it would
lie a good idea to introduce coaching
methods, so be got over near first base
and waited for one of- his party to g<*t
there on a hit. Finally one did ge*t
there on an error, and our man started
in to say things. - "Gct-nway-up!"-ho yelled. "Sneak for second. lie can't
''throw it"down." was another of bis
yawps. lie -succeeded in rattling his
compatriot, a ribbe>n counter man. so
badly that the hired pitcher of tlie other
tonni cinglit him off tlie base by six
foot. TJlrn our man took exception to a
called' ball. He,, hail seen professional
umpire".bulldozed. Ho had verbally' ,is-
6aulte*d many n one, from a safe spot
in  the grand  stand, 'many a  time and
- Oft. So he thought he knew it all, and
he* promptly started in to nrgne with
the hired umpire, ne towered over (hot
umpire.    lie-weighed a whole lot more.
'   He  bad a  louder voice,  and  that con
sciousness  of  superiority     whicli   every
������employer,-- evon-though--=on!y���one���ol-
twenty-two, has.
So ho kicked, ne use*el forcible expressions. He ranted. He gesticulated.
He did all these things, but for only a
time. The little tongh hired umpire
inst fixcel him with bis eye. He lookt-.l
him over. He smiled an aggravatc.l
smile that had more superiority in it
than a composite superior smile of the
twenty-two dilettante ball players would
have had. Then he said, in even tonvs-
"See here. Yardstick, me boy, I have
Hie* two dollars. You go clown In your
corner and scare your mob as fast as
(ley get to first base. No yawps go will
"ino, I'm umpire for. the whole time*,
nnd notliin' but a cannot ball can knock
down my decisions." -    -
So our man went away and yawped
ngain in very piccolo tones. He liuisel
over his failure to intimidate that hired
Then our man went to the bat. He
had arranged to hit the bnll in a particular way and to send it to a spot well
out beyond the fielders, ne thought be
knew bo could do this, because he used
to do it. So ho waited for the kind of
bull be wanted, and before lie ha'd found

lie had some i/loa of "calling down" the
little hired umpire at this point, but that
quiet littlo eye met his just ns before,

Then he went out Into the field again,
the inning being over. He "rooted" for

thought of the ease with which he would
"pull it dovn" and then carelessly toss
it in to second as the real fielders do.
As luck would have it a ball did come
his way. ' It was a. beauty. It cut the
air with a clean parabola curve. He
looked pp nt it and judged that he was
not far enough out. He moved back
with celerity. A little to his right was
a sturdy free. His backward -move
brought him very near to this. The

It was a very small Western town,

soon all was quiet again, and the few
occupants of tne hotel were left for
some time to undisturbed repose. Just

Kjiake to Williams of Trail, arc the  contractors, yy  Vice-President ShaughnesWy, of :llie>  C.P.K., wns .in.Minneapolis on Sunday  en route home over the "'Soo" line.  Interviewed Mr. .Shaughnessy said in  answer to the question: "What is  there in the Sll-rail.route to the 'Klondike ?". "Well that is a long way eih',  jVn extension from Edmonton to,,.the  north west is possible, but only to" connect with the navigable waters. -For  fotiv months in the year the ,water  route i.s feasible, and a rail route eoulel  not compare with it. But if the* Klondike turns out as richly as it seems to  promise, some means of course will  have to be found to bring it into communication with the rest of the worlel  all the year round.  | {The Nelson correspondent of the  Rossddnd Miner says, D. VV. Mc-  ���������Vir.ar exhibited to your correspondent  today some of the iinest, ore it has ever  been his fortune to gaze upon. It  comew from the Lar-deati district, and  the specimens, at lenstseveral of them  were destined for the'..exhibition cases  of the Bank ofBritish'Colurhbia. Thev  were; ttiken .from the- claims known as  the Olive May, Little Fred, anel three  others, the owners being the Lade  brothers and .Arthur Gunn. There  are three different ledges, each about  eight feet in width, on the claims, but  the width of the paystt-etaks has not  yet been i eleterinined. The ore. is  graphic .tellurium anil iron ..pyrites,  assaying from specimens Mr. Mt; Vicar  submitted MSi ounces in gold to .the  ton. Although the claims were elis-  covereel about a month ,ago. no work  has yet been done on the-m. The owners have, however, just sent a consignment of two tons to the Kaslo sampling  works. The rock is said to be* identical  with that of Boulder creek, Colorado.  It appears that the Slocan is not so  entirely a purely silver-lead Country  as has been supposed. The Slocan  City Pioneer gives a list of over sixty  claims, on many of which considerable  development bus been done*, which  average over ij.18. to the ton in gold.  T. Bain and Angus Beaton arrived  from Downie. creek yesterday. They  left Ferguson some weeks ago, and  prospected acre>ss country to Downie  creek, finding some, very rich silver-  gold propositions, wliich tbey will go  back to locate as soon as they get  another grub-stake. In attempting to  cross Downie; creek, the snow having  driven them olf the mountain tops,  they lost their whole outfit, iiy Iheir  raft being upset, leaving llii-ni fur two  elays willi iiiil.hing to eat, and a -10-mile  tramp la face to reach a camp.  Passing through Winnipeg Jlr.  Grant Govan was interviewed by a  Free Press reporter, In answer to an  inquiry fur some news about the coni-  pany'sniiiii.'s ho said : "As soon as tho  wagon road, the contract for which  we gave to "Ir. Ross, the well known  ceintr.-icteir of Toronto, is completed  wc shall make a first shipment of 1,000  tons of ore from the Waverley direct  Lo Swansea, and our superintendent  at the mines has given ns a guarantee  that it will he worth at least $100,000.  We shall also make a small shipment  from the Tangier of the very rich ore  already referred to. Such operations  will elei a great deal to establish the  reputation of British Columbia in the  London market as a suitable mining  field for the investment of British  capital. The town of Revelstoke'. as I  predicted last year, will soon become  the Charing Cross of Kootenay. Heretofore most attention has heen given  to the Slocan and the Rossland districts, but it is my distinct opinion  that the districts surrounding Revel's toke, such as the L-irdcati, the Big  Bend, and the North Fork where the  Waverley and Tangier mines are  situated, will forge their way tei the  front and become the great mining  centre of British Columbia. In the  North -Fork my company has something like a score of properties and it  is already fully proven that quite a  number, if not all of those properties,  will become shippers of such high  grade ore that they will some day be  recognized as the greatest mines in  the. country."'
