BEAVEN MAY FAIL  Invitations   to  Seats   in   His   Cabinet  Have Been Respectfully Declined  Victoria Colonist: In view of the  development of yeslerduy in lhe pol-  licial situation, it appears not at ull  unlikely thut Hon. Rob'l. Beaven will  be. unsuccessful in his tusk of forming  a government in sucee-sion to that of  Hon. J. H. Turner. Air. _.einliii, Jlr.  F. C. Cotton and Air. Joseph Martin���������  the three acknowledged leaders of the  oppositionists���������have'ull been invited to  seats in the projected Cabinet, and  each in turn has respectfully declined.  Negotiations are still being conducted  by Hon. Mr. Beaven, but il is difficult  to surmise where he is to find suitable  material with which to construct an  acceptable ministry.  The news that Mr. Martin had been  sent for by the-Lieutenant-Governor  caused another ripple of mild excite  ment yesterday" afternoon, thu not  unnatural presumption being thut  Hon, Mr. Beaven had abandoned his  formidable undertaking in cabinet-  making, and Mr. Martin had been  appealed to. This conclusion Mr.  Air. Beaven stamped as incorrect,  however. He says-.Mv. Martin's call  at Government House had no especial  significance; the ���������' Governor certainly  had a perfect right to confer wilh any  citizen whose opinion he might hold  to be of value, and had in this case  merely availed himself of this right.  He had, not abandoned the task of  forming " a-governiileut. although he  had no progressto.report to the public. Everything was still in abeyance  pending the arrival of Mr. Seuiliii and  .others for a conference.  Mr. Semlin ��������� and Sir. Cotton were  passengers by the , Charmer in "ihe  evening and within an hour had  met Hon. Mr. Beaven for consideration of his invitation. . Mr. Semlin was  seen later in tho evening, and held  that he would be violating no confidence in snying'that'neither he nor  Mr. Cotton could accept the portfolios  offered them by the former leader, of  .tlii-opposition..,-.* '"' - '-'���������'.".  '"As to the" Lieutenant-Governor's  Action," said Mr. Semlin, "I do'not  maintain that he was not perfectly  right iri asking lion. Mr. Turner's  resignation if- iu his opinion that  gentleman had uot retained the confidence of the country. Under such  circumstances it was clearly his duty  to do so. I do take exception, however, to the departure from established procedure in tho sending for  Hon. Air. Beuven to form a ministry.  The Lieutenant-Governor doubtless  had a constitutional right to call upon  .Mr. Beaven, or anyone else, but I do  neit regard it as' having been wisely  exercised." .  " Is there any possibility of coalition between yourself eind Hon. Mr.  Turner," was asked the_ leader of the  "bpposilinnr ~     =    ~    =   "  "Ah���������that is something we will not  talk about," he replied with a smile.  " That is an egg that can wait for a  time."  Victoria, B. C, August 12.���������Beaven has failed at the tusk of cabinet  making and it is understood vvill so  repoi t to the Governor this evening.  Both Martin and Semlin were olfered  cabinet positions by Beaven and both  refused to consider the proposition for  one moment. In view of che crisis  the meeting which was to have been  held by the Opposition at Vancouver  on August 2-th for lhc purpose of  choosing a leader has been called for  August 19t,li. Lieutenant-Governor  Mclnnes is being rousted on all sides  for his uction on calling on Beaven,  \V. AV. B. Mclnnes gets blamed for  engineering the whole scheme, but he  denies any knowledge of it. Thu  Colonist this morning has a hob editorial roasting Lieut.-Governor McInnes an agitates for an inquiry by  Federal.* authorities into Mclnnes'  action.' The impression prevails-that  the Lieut.-Governor will shortly call  on Semlin to form a government. A  rumor is afloat at this writing that  Semlin will form a coalition government vvith Turner. Semlin had a long  conference with Turner at tho latter's  office this morning anel later both  entered a hack and drove to the  Government House. It is not believed  that there is anything in this rumor  NEWS FROM SEATTLE  The Klondike Rush a Thing of the  Past���������The Victoria Excursionists  Reception in Seattle  (From Our Own Coi'responilciil.)  Seattle, Wash., Aug. 0.���������On account of a severe attack of rheumatism in my right arm it has been  impossible for mc to favor you with  the news from this part of tho world  regularly.  Every boat that arrives from the  north brings more or less Klondykcrs,  a fevv of whom have a little money.  The people of Seattle and vicinity  have become accustomed to the sight  of returning miners, and even if some  of lliein do have a few thousand in  dust it does not seem to create any  stampede, consequently those who  have been expecting a grand rush  when the boats got down from Dawson City, have been sadly disappointed  There were some 25 bonis built here  and sent north to be used on tho  Yukon river, but only two succeeded  in reaching St, Michael's.  Today our city is swarming with our  cousins across the line, the result of an  excursiou from Victoria. From the  way some of the laddies, and lufcsies  are enjoying themselves the day will  long be remembered as one of the  most pleasant events of their lives.  On the fourth of July over 300 of the  British Columbia volunteers, fully  equipped took part in the parade. As  they marched up yesterday and filed  off ou to Third avenue with the band  playing American national airs, they  were met by the 1st. Regiment band  who were playing God Save the Queen  and such a grand jubilee as followed  vvas never witnessed in Seattle before.  Babies were hold " aloft by their  mothers, while men threw their hats  in the air and cheered themselves  hoarse. The British Hug and Stars  and Stripes floated siele by side from  nearly every business house anel residence in the city, with here anel there  a Japanese flag interwoven. A crowd  of Japanese gentlemen in the crowd  caused considerable comuii.it,  _ The Foresters' Amusement Association of Seattle gave, their annual  picnic at Pleasant Beach on Sunday  last.. Over three thousand people  were on tbe grounds.-Dancing, games,  and sports were tho-iitiiiisanients-of  the day.'" Over $300 worth of valuable  prizes were given to the most success  ful contestants.  Bourne Bros  The fare from Revelstoko to New  Westminster during exhibition week  at the latter city is $13.55." The sale  of tickets commence on October 4th  and are good to return up to the 9th of  that month.  W. Lindsay went out to inspect the  new strike on his company s claim  reported on by Mr. Moody, and the  account, if only hiilf true, is suflicient  to mako Donald's future solid. There:  is no doubt but that we cannot help  but go ahead and thai- now very fast,  take the Bald Mount .in, Blnewater,  Quartz, Porcupine, Copper and Brown  creeks and many others too numerous  too mention. They all have good  claims on them and we will endeavor  to get a description and the assay of  the same aud I have no doubt your  readers will be very much surprised  at the richness of our vicinity when I  tell you they are directly in the neighborhood of our glorious, busy little  townono cannot but help feeling that  inside of a very few years Donald will  bave as good, if not belter town, than  any of the mining towns hi British  Columbia.���������Golden Miner;  KEYSTONE MOUNTAIN  Rich   Ore   Body   Recently  Discovered  ���������A Promising Camp  J. O. Montgomery returned on Wednesday from Key. tone mountain where  he owns two groups of cl.iims on  which he hus been putting on assessment work. The first group of three  claims consists nf the. Old Reliable,  Cariboo and Eldorado, the second  group consists of-four-claims-namely.  Silver Bell, Alabama, Humboldt and  Silver Hill. Mr. Montgomery is also  owner of two other claims, the Omaha  and North Star, on the same mountain, from which he recently got uu  assay of $-37 iii gold, 12 per cent.  copper and 40 ozs. silver. A sale of  soine of the abovo named mines is  now ponding ,(o an American company, and it is Mr. Montgomery's  intention to get them interested in  that part of the country if it is at all  possible as he believes it will be tn the  interest, of the Big Bend country  generally that a rich syndicate should  take- hold of the work of development.  Harry Morris, whose property joins  that of Montgomery's, miiile a  rich strike recently, llu stripped the  lead and exposed 7 feet of solid ore and  has sinco sunk to a depth eif three feet  aiiel was still in the ores with the lead  widening with lhe prospect of showing  ui) from 10 to 15 feet of solid ore. It is  Air. Montgomery's belief that this lead  that Alorris is working continues  on to the mother lead of Keystone  mountain and that the stringers and  fissure veins located are offshots from  it. _  SMELTERBLOWN IN  One   Furnace   of   the   Trail     Smelter  Started.���������180 Tons Treated Dally  One furnace of the Trail smelter was  blown in on Alonday last and the  second furnace will be started within  the next ten days. The furnace is  running at low blast and is putting  through about 180 tons daily. Eighteen  thousand tons of ore are now being  roasted. The foundation of the new  lead furnace has been started and the  plant for it is now in transit. The  smelter can now treat 350 tons of ore  and will handle500 tons with the lead  fiirnncp. Tn addition to thncompany's  electric plant, power will soon be  furnished from Bonnington falls.  Benson Gets Three Years  Judge Forin held court on Thursday  under the "Speedy Trials' Act,"' whr-n  the case of the Queen and C.P.R. vs.  B������~nsnn came up. The prisoner wns  charged with placing obstructions on  the C.P.R. track, full particulars of  which appeared in the Herald  recently. A number of witnesses gave  evidences on behalf of tho prosecution anel the prisoner vvas found  guilty and Judge Foiin sentenced bim  to three years in the Provincial pehi -  tertiary;  THE   HALCYON  HOT  SPRINGS  A Herald Man Spends a Few Days at  This Popular Resort  In all British Columbia a nioie  healthful and suitable place lo spend a  few days with one's family or otherwise, away from business worries or  the monotony of daily toil could not  be found than at the Halcyon Hoi  Springs, beautifully situated on the  eastern shore of the Arrow Lakes, ten  miles from Arrowhead and 3S miles  from "Revelsloke. Leaving here at  about 8 a.m. by tiuin for Arrowhead  connection is made at 0:30 with the  magnificent steamers now plying on  the Arrow lakes. After half an hour's  sailing (which seems a very short time  under such circumstances) the most  famous Halcyon Hot Springs and  Sanitarium are reached.  To enumerate the number of buildings, and their different uses would  occupy more space than is at our  disposal, bul suffice it is to say that  they are well laid out and cotnrorlable  as far us they go. Thousands of  dollars are still to bo spent by the  company in completing and building  new structures and in fixing up a  handsome boulevard, recreation  grounds, belter boating facilities, etc.  So much for the buildings and the  prospective outlay. But even at  present there is ample accommadation  to suit even the most faslielious. There  is a large staff of clerks and porters  under Manager Phair's capable supervision; an experienced man to look  after the men's bathrooms and a first-  class nurse lo attend the ladies and  sick, while Dr. Brett, whose.reputa-  tution as a skilled man. in his profession, isalready widely known in the  West, resides at the springs. The  saloon is built some two hundred feet  from the main building,' and the  genial mixerologistis Mr, M.C. Karter,  late of tbe Hotel Allan, Rossland.  AIr..Kactu is an entertainer in more  thai) one respect, being a , splendid  elocutionist, a good singer, and an  all-round sport. The diningrooms are  neat, clean and attractive,' while a  decided improvement bus .been made  in_tho .bill of ./are.. Manager. Ph.-iir  is how looking for a first-class white  cook aud salary will be no object so  long as satisfaction is given. The  rates have thus been raised from $2 to  $2.50 a.day aod bath tickets remain at  five for .fil. . Fishing, boating, bathing  and swimming are the chief piuitimes,  but sleeping occupies a good deal of  the time as the lithia water seems to  h-.ve that peculiar effect, so that a  person is not ouly thoroughly cleansed  bnt it makes you sleep ��������� and when  wakened up one feels so refreshed that  he is ready for anything, particulatly  a good squill-e meal.  People from all portions of the globe  keep . constantly coming and going to  this resort and lbe number of crutches  left behind goes to demonstrate the  many vvho have been cured of rheuv  uiatis_a_thro_gh_bathiiig_iii_.t_!s_ho_  mineral water. The rush to the  Halcyon Hot Springs Sanitarium has  only commenced.   ' -  A large bottling plant is being  installed on tlie ground anel soon  aerated Halcyon water will be in command the world over and is Apolin.iris  at the present time. It is a delicious  and healthful drink even us it oozes  from the rock. Pages could be written  of this wonderful water, bin; it must  be seen, drank and butheel in to fully  appreciate its value.  halcyon notes  Lieutenant-Governor Macintosh's  family have been spending; a couple of  weeks at tbe springs previous to taking np their residence in Vancouver.  Mr. Lindsay, of Victoria, who is  making his first trip through the  Kontnnays, stopped off at the Springs  this week to enjoy an outing.  Mrs. McGnire, of Salmon Arm. who  is suffering from rheumatism, is being  benefitted very much through  weeks' sojourn at the Springs.  .Messrs. Sue.ad and Plum are tbe  champion swimmers at the resort.  They frequently swim across the lake,  a distance of three miles, unel return,  which is no small undertaking.   *  SEMLIN GALLED  Beaven   Had  to   Abandoh'  the  Attempt   and   Mr.*  Semlin"  will Try His' Hffri-f;  Special to the Herald'.

The ore is stilted  to go as high as $13 in gold and there  is every indication of n large body of  it. The doctor describes the scenerv  as indescribably grand and rugged.  Immense glaciers cover the sides of  the mountains up to tlie very foot of  which are green postures of long gross,  the feeding.grouuil of numerous goats  and cariboo, while over great areas  the surface is white and purple with  heather and gay with innumerable  flowers.

Hcah como de  Yankees!"  Such was the cry which roused Nell  Tarleton from her bed that summer  evening when Genernl Butler, at the  head of the Federal troops, Bwooped  down upon City Point, Va., and blocked the road to Petersburg.  Nell Tarleton dwelt with ber mother  and baby brother in their old fashioned  home on the James river. Tho father of  the family was away on tho Potomac,  fighting the battles of the Confederacy,  and only a few faithful negroes remained to guard'Mrs.'Tarletou and her children.  As Nell sprang from her bed ebe  heard tho rattle of musketry up tho  river. A shell tore, screaming, over the  house, followed by another and another.  Then there burst forth from tbe stables  a lurid glare, and sho-heard ber mother's distracted voice shrieking that tho  negro quarters were afire.  Nail's fingers trembled violently, but  she managed to dou her frock nnd shoes  before old Aunt Drueilla came lumbering up the stairs aud drove the child,  fihoes in hand, from tho room,   y  ������"Doan' min' yo'. slioes till yo'gits  onto' flab," exclaimed Aunt Drusilla  resolutely, and so, barefooted and half  clad, Nell hurried through tho confusion of tho hall and iuto tho lawn beforo tho house.  Thero she found her mother hysterical and helpless, and there, _too, was tho  baby, snugly wrapped up aud carried  by , his nurse, the mulatto Phoebe.  Somo valuables hastily put together lay  in bundles on the grass���������plainly revealed in the ruddy light from tho blazing  huts. Nobody Foemod to know what to  do till Aunt Drusilla swept upon tho  scene. Then movement took tho placo  of inaction.  "Heah, yo' fool niggalist" cried the  old colored woman. "AVhat for yo' star-  in en doin iiuftin? Want do Yankees to  cotch yo', huh? Grab clem bundles an  nn  for  do  woods.   An yo', too, Miss   , an yo', honey.   Run, I tell yb'.  Phoebe, min'  dat nr chile, or I warm  yo'. Ever'body's got to run."  And everybody ran���������even fat Aunt  Drueilla herself. Down tbe dewy lawn,  with the Federal bullets whistling  among tho tree tops hard by, and the  flames spreading to the barns aud stables, thoy fled. For in the night attaolc  no ono was safe. Neither north not  couth warred against women and children, bnt under cover of darkness tho  gravest danger threatened all within  the area of attack.  _____At-last..they_roached_the_dense_wo_ods,_  nnd the sound of firing oarne but faintly to their ear_, though tho glow of the  distant fire still showed its grim reflection upon tho sky line.  "Dis far 'nough," grunted Aunt' Drueilla, who, despite her age and corpulence, had kept well in front of tho  race. " We can rest now. Put dem bundles down, yo' boys, an, O my Lawd!  Whar's Phoeber"  Poor Mrs. Tarleton turned at the old  woman's frightened cry���������tnrned to see  that tbe young mulatto was indeed  missing, together'. with , her precious  charge, tho baby I The unfortunate  woman's brain reeled at this last terri-  :; ble calamity, and she fell fainting upon  the path.  Kneeling by her side and chafing her  hands, Aunt Drusilla cried frantically  to the negro boys, who Btood around, to  search the woods.  "Go back de way wo come," sho  shouted. "Phoebe inns' be captured of  shot. Go back an fetch young marso  'fore de Yankees git him."  But the negroes hung their heads  sheepishly.  '"���������'���������'We'iie'fraid, Aunt Drnsilla.   'Deed  we'll- drefful 'fraid," they moaned.  Wrathfully the old woman rose to  her feet.  "An yo' call yo'selves menl" sho exclaimed. "Yo's nuffln bnt a'~pack o'  cowardly possums. I'll go back inah-  self. Yassurl Olo Aunt Drusilla ain't  scared o' Yankee guns when young  Marse Hal's lef bebin'.'f  True to her word, tho stout hearted  Drnsilla turnod in the direction of the  burning outbuildings and shuffled down  the pathway as fast ns she could go.  But another pair of ; feet wore lighter  than hers? A littlo girl in a flimsy frock,  with her, shoes clutbhed in her hands,  aped past the old Degress. It was Nell  l'artleton, trembling no longer, but wild  with eagerness to save her baby brother.  "Come book; honey I Fo' de Lawd's  sole*, come back!" gasped Aunt Drusilla, ���������������' she snatched unavailingly at the  ���������mall figure which rushed so swiftly  by. But Nell only shook her hoad and  rfca ihe faster. Farther and farther behind dropped poor Drusilla, until at  least she lost sight of Nell nil together.  Then she threw up hor hands and sank  despairingly upon a log..  "Dat ends it all," she sobbed. "Boy  an gal bofe gone now:' Wbnt'll Marso  Tohleton say when ho comes back?

Novv sho saw tho  roofs of hor father's houso illuminated  by tbo spreading lire, and now again  the shells wont whistling over hor head.  Rabbits and squirrels skurriod madly  past her, escaping from the advancing  troops. She heard tho sound of many  footsteps and tho sharp banging of tho  Fodoral riflos. On tho rising ground bo-  fore tho houso blaok figures hurried to  and fro���������tho van of Butler's army. But  sho did not stop. What wero tho enoniy  tohor when Hal was missing���������wounded by a chanco bullot porhupsnnd dying  in the fields?  With a roar tho house caught fire,  and a shower of sparks soared into tho  air and foil among tho troos. A bullot  pinged not a foot away from Nell, but  she hoard it uot.  "Hall Brother Hal!" was tho song  her heart sang, aud sho hoedod no other sound.  A brunch, shorn pit,' frpin its parent  tree, crashed down upon tho heroio  child and bore lier to earth. Sho crawled from beneath it, hor shoulder bruised  aud torn and with sharp pains in her  ankle that fold of a serious strain. She  could run no loniior, but limping was  still possible; so onward sho limped.  At lust tho lawn wns reached, nnd  Noll folt ivheavy hand descend upon hor  aching shoulder.  "Hold hard there!" criod:ay voice.  "What in heaven's name are you doing  here''"  The child looked up'iuto a rough,  bearded face, begrimed with powder,  yet not unkindly.  "Tho baby!" showhispored hoarsely,  "I've come back for Baby Hal."  .Tho bearded man let the sword which  he carried fall buck into its sheath.  "Oh, you've como hack for tho baby?  Come baok through the shells and bullets, eh? My girl, you're a regular Joan  of Arc." '  "No,   sir, I'm  a Confederate. And  please, won't you help me to lind baby?"  The big soldier caught Nell up in his  arms.  " Why, your poor little foot's out,"  he cried, "and your shoulder's bleeding  too.    This is awful."  "Dou't mind my shoulder, Mr. Yankee.   Let me iind baby."  Tho Federal officer pnt his spare baud  to his month by way of n speaking  trunipot and shouted in stentorian tones,  '' Hns���������any���������man���������found���������a��������� baby?"  From the right came an nnsworing  hail, and a spldior came-running out of  tho darkness!  "Wo found a colored girl and a baby  over thoro, sir," ho said. "Thogirl had  been knocked down by eouio burning  timbers from tho barn."  Two miuutos hitnr Baby Hal was.  cooing, just ns if nothing iind happened,  upon Noll's lacerated shoulder.. Poor  Phoebe, badly though not .dangerously  hurt,- told how in flying'blindly from  tho Federals sho had , beon struok and"  disabloel by a falling beam.  As tho story spread among tho Fed-,  eral soldiers thoy gathered around Nell,  cheering her so loudly tbat Aunt Drusilla, sitting disconsolately upon her  stump in the'wood., heard tho uproar  and wondered what: it meant.   .  Not long had ..the honest old negross  to woneler, for presently there marched  through the woods a guard of honor  surrounding tho Federal officer who curried both Noll and the baby in liis  strong arms.

Eggs From Australia.  No. many years ngo the possibility  of shipping eggs from Australia with  any likelihood of their reaching England except in a decomposed condition  would have been ridiculed as utterly  unworthy of consideration. Today the  thing is not only, being accomplished,  but the eggs arrivo in such first class  condition that they, pass as new laid.  This has been rendered possible by the  universal empiuynmnt of rcfrigoratiug  apparatus on shipboard. The eggs, while  still perfectly fresh, are forwarded by  tbo Australian poultry keepers to the  cold store and are shipped to England  at tho time wheu eggs are scarce aud  consequently at thoir doarest. Many  thousands of dozens, pa^gid ih boxes  with cardboard divisions, .tiled.up with  dry pea husks, are now forwarded to  this country from November to January. Ina recent consignment the local  price of the eggs at the time of shipping  was 5"^d. per dozen, the freight and  packing cost about 3d. per dozen/and  they realized Is. Cd. per dozen retail on  arrival at this side of the world.���������  Chambers'Journal.

S.  and Get many��������� Military Feeling is  Growing in England���������The Deceased  c Wife's Sister's Bill in the House���������  , Scottish Life and Humor.  London, July 19.���������A story is going  "about this week that upon one Of the  groat  liners  coming  to   the   landing  stage at Liverpool this   week  on   its  arrival   from  America,  an : American  rushed to thesido of the ship and called  out  to  the   people  on   the  stage.  "What's the latest news ot the war?"  A man Who partly hoard, said," what?''  and the excited American repeated the  question, "what's the  latest news  of  the war?"'   The ''hearer slowly looked  up and drawlingly asked "what war?"  The talk is that no doubt the Spanish  Anicricah.,:war looms up a great deal  larger.   in:  America   than   here,   but  that everywhere  it  is  of  very deep  interest; that especially where English  is spoken it, cannot be regarded with  indifference:?' and that it is very satisfactory indeed to find what a warm  feeling has been excited in. this country   in   favor   of  America,   and   that  everyone .'has   rejoiced   in   America's  success,     i;  In well informed quarters here the  belief is exprescd that the autumn  will witness a tariff war between Germany and the United States. Tlie  result of the elections in Germany has  been to return a much stronger com-  lucrcial element to the [Reichstag,  and the members representing commercial interests, and commercial  bodies all over the country are urging  tlio government to tax prohibitively  all American' manufactures, but chiefly cycles; machinery of all kinds, and  hardware, which arc competing vvith  German markets. ; The government  | it is said, has already gone to the  length of instructing the minister of  I commerce to ascertain what alterations can be made to the tariff to this  end. and the report is expected before the enel or the month., Reading  between the lines of the events of the  past few weeks, it is to be inferred  that the military spirit will now be  fostered as far as possible in this  country by the authorities. The review at Aldershot by the queen, the  unprecedented patronage of the militia by the Prince of Wales, the blandishments of the commander In chief  at various meetings, with the view of  inducing young men to join the "army,  by magnifying tho attractions of the.'  military career, and the creation thiu  year of a special reserve, all point to  lhis direction. From day to day wo  aro receiving many lessons that lhe  licet, however powerful it may be,  is for sonic, essential'purposes'for lhc  the defence of our interests it one-  edged and inadequate Instrument, ll  cannot for instance, defend us againsi  Russia our trade interests lu lho Yang-  sti valley, if tliat, country choose to  push lis influence and political supremacy through the back provinces  of China down to the very bunks ot  llu: grout river.  As the position laken up by the  lord chancellor in the colonial iiiur-  rhiges bill on Friday last shows, the  ini'inbersOf the cabinet, an; not, unanimous on the subject, and when ii  reaches the houso of commons it will  accordingly bo dropped as a very contentious measure. Though It would  not meet, with much resistance on  the opposition side of the house, there  is a scclion of lhc members of the  ministerial'side of; the house Who  would give It uncompromising hostility, and accordingly as the government have no oilicial ' Interest in tlie  bill, it will bo sacrificed.  Mr. Sinclair has published in  .Scottish' Life and Humor, a collection  ot what the Americans would call  chestnuts, or venerable .loo Me-  Millars. Perhaps the? following legend may not be commonly known.  A little vvoniiin was nskod by the  granny what the text was at the kirk.  "About the scarlet vvoniiin, great. "  unmentionable person, "O Babylon."  "Con that wonum- be on the ranelen  yet, 1 mind she was a bad ane when 1  vvas a wee bit lassie." The "Situboth,".  as Mr. Sinclair calls it, is said to be  kept less strictly than when Dr.  Guthrie asked for hot water to shave  on a Sunday, and was loid. "Speak o  shaving on tho Lord's day in Ross-  shire, and you need never preach here  again." " Yet at Donom recently,  uniler lhe shadow of Highland Mary's  statue, pious mobs refused to lot  tourists land on Sunday. Shooting  tenants have been "rabbid" in lho  north for taking a boat to gel Iheir  letters on a Sunday. The bench unil  biir, of course yield anccdolos, as of  the judge, vvho, when an advocate  suggested that a client (in a case of  a house with a leak in lhe roof)  '"might put up ;i roan" (a water pipe)  profanely remarked, "put up a roan,  ye might as well l'mL ������l~ ��������������� prayer."  On the whole, Scottish jest hooks in  general are dull rending, but lhis "is  somewhat, of an exception.  Lasl year Denmark imported ' to  Great Britain bucon and hams io the  value ot .I" 2,950.00: butter vvorLh  .i;(),42S.OO. and .C672.000 worth of eggs.  The report of Mr. Boyle, our consul at  Copenhagen; shows that in the case of  the Danish, agricultural success is the  result ol" aiming at good  quality, and economical working.  Great care is taken in the raising of  fodder and food. No cow is kept thai  does not pay its way as a milk producer. If rendered over confident by  success, the Danish farmer presumes  upon his reputation and grows careless, lie is soon,pulled up. This last  year there wero complaints about  Danish bacon, which arose princlpally  ,fiom the fact that the pigs had been  led on cheap and nasty maize. A  similar difficulty kept the eggs back  becauso-times were so bad, and an egg  does not improve as it grows older,  except in China. The consequence  was that Danish eggs came under suspicion, aud thoir value, fell,-for the  English consumer dislikes a bad  Danish egg just as much as a bad  English one.

"Say,' do  none; of; the people of this..'island do  any business Henley week;" he suddenly demanded. "A?: few in outlying  districts" was the reply, but statistics  on that point are very unreliable."  "Well no offence old man," he went  On, "I only thought Pel liko to mention  the matter anyway. When we go to a  regatta in the.Stales, wc have the rowing iright on the spot, and go home  again. Seems to us no competition  should be baulked of a prize by olel  'age creeping ou him between the  heats. That's all." A never einliiiir  joy, he explained, was the men's  .headgear. "I'd been about a week in  London I guess when 1 got a sort of  longing to see a London man without  n silk hat on him. A man from  Chicago teild mo "sonic of them took  'cm off when they went to bed, but he  could not say Which, and I diel not  want to run no risks in the hotel.

Mining and Mine Managers  Alining is  a   great,   and   should   be  often a, more   profitable   industry,  is  largely in   the hands   of   sharks   and  impostors, a sweeping  assertion, _br.t  the l ruth of it will be recognized hy  iiny miner whose falling has compelled  him to labor in the mines of the west,  and many eastern capitalist can be-ar  witness that they have been the vie.  tims of fraud in connection with western mining schemes.  1 elo not for a moment overlook the  .advantage technical eeiiie:ation gives  the miner, he cannot have too much of  it, but thorough knowleelgo of practical mining is essential.  An incompetent man can often run  a mine foy a long time" without Ix'ing  found out, iind I can think of no other  great, industry where the: owners arc  not usually tneireconveisant vvith the  minute details, leakage and lose-, than  any employee. But bow dilfeient in  mining anti how oeuiipl-toly are the  owners at the mercy of the men if he  has not a practical knowledge of the  details.  I low often in the rie-h slopes of the  mine I have seen lbe mineis pushed  and expected lo make a showing, when  Ihey hlioulel havo devoted their whole  shift in the ...iving of lhe mineral, that  vvas of more value than a month's  vvagfts. In such a case Lhe incompetent managi-nient cannot discriminate:  a showing of work is made hy the  miner, some nre goes lo the siiifae-e-  ami all is well. Again, should a flow  of vvntc-r lit! encountered in sinking,  and lhc management not understanding sinking in wet ground, what vvill  bu tliu result? Tho shaft will cost  many time's its value, hut the malinger can Iny the blame to things the  ownei-s may not uve-n know lho names  r:f ;inel he is excused, and, there being  <tn element of chance; in mining, the  manager may have the good few-tune  to run into a body of rich nre iinel  make a reputation for himself as a  successful mining man.  Mining is a great and grand industry  anel many mines are- iii.-i unreel and  olTice-it-el by men familiar with every  detail, but my experience I am sorry  to say, shows that by fur toei much  western mining is e-iirricel on by men  who dei not, understand the details of  tiie sul<ji>i"t and consequently large  sums of money are sunk annually  that should in proper hands bring  back manifold returns to the owners.  ���������J.A.A. in Jlines and Mineral.

BECKEn,  Revel-lake Station. 13nn  A CONSERVATIVE  CONVENTION  A movement is on foot, and the idea  is meeting with approval in every part  of the province, to hold a convention  at Vancouver for the purpose of reorganizing the Conservative party in  British Columbia. The Hkrald is  fully in accord with this proposal. In  mat lers of this sort there is no necessity to vvasto time in discussing the  pros and cons. The need of reorganization is obvious and the bet.t time to  elo the work is now. One of the leaders  of the party, Hon. G. E. Foster, is in  the province at present, and advantage  should be taken of bis visit to hold the  convention while he is with us so as to  have, the benelit of his experience and  advice. There are a great many  matters which need discussing of the  utmost importance both to the party  and the country at large. Conservatives throughout Canada have profited  by the lesson of 1S96. There is a general disposition to set the Conservative bouse in order to get rid of some  of our old men of the sea and to see  lhat tbe youth and vigor of tho party  has a share in its councils and the  guidance of its policy. Nowhere  probably in Canada can these matters  be more broadly and intelligently  discussed than they would be at a  Conservative convention in British  Columbia. This province has in the  past few years attracted to it inou of  light and leading from every part of  tho Dominion. Here east naei ts west  and the narrow, old-fashioned provincialisms of Quebec and Ontario sink  into significance before the broader  conceptions of the Conservative  National Policy, which out here is  materializing before our very eyes.  Few men possess tho magnificent gift  of political imagination which enabled  Sir John Mucdonald to foresee tbe  immense possibilities bound up in lhe  policy which he identified with Conservatism and for which bo labored so  steadfastly and so long. But a man  must be blind vvho cannot see them  working out in the great West of  Canada today. And it is in the West  where these results are so patent that  their future development is tho ABC  of politics, that Canada may look in  future for the men who will carry out  Sir John Macdonald's ideas to their  full completion. In the coming Conservative government the ideas of our  great {leader will once more; be the  keynote of the Conservative policy,  and the west will see to it that she  fnrnisbfrp representatives who will be  able to impress them upon the rank  and file of the party in the east. After  all the present fast waning Grit ascendancy is merely an episode in the  history of Conservatism, perhaps even  a stiicilyinevitable and  not at all   to  Try.  FOR  B. E.
