Mr. Watson being well pleased with both  properties and at once has closed the  deal for the Black, Diamond _>roup.  Work will commence at once, weather  permitting.  Dudley Blackwood, of Sandon,  accompanied Mr. Watson to the Big  Five and he inspected the Rob Roy  and others on the-Horn lead. Mr.  Blackwood was surprised at the different showing of such large bodies of  ore on the surface. ���������'  Hewitt Bostock,. M. P., has at last  paid this part of his riding the long'  promised visit when the matter of  postofllce was brought up he had  nothing to say. only, that as he had  never visited this part he did not  consider that Ferguson was bo handicapped in mail matters as it was. He  will insist on having the office established. Mr. Bostock" complained that  this district did a great amount of  kicking." but after it/was shown to  him he could not say but .what the  kicks were necessary and that he was  to blame a great deal for it. .

THE HEATHEN CHINEE  Buying    a   Wife   "at    Kuskanook���������A  Sensational Abduction Case  Tbe heathen Chinee has been at his  tricks in Kuskonook, according to  news just received from that rising  town on tho Crow's Nest Pass Railway. It seems that Lun Foo, who  keeps a restaurantjthere, sighed for a  companion. Wah Chung, of Revelstoke, displayed' before his admiring  eyes' what the gallant imaginative  reporter of Nelson - describes as "a  pretty little Chinese' girl, soft eyed  and saffron skinned." Foo had to  worship from a distance until he had  paid down $400. Then Wah Chung  handed over the girl. But Lun-Foo  did not have her for long. Wah  Chung, of Revelstoke,"hiiving his $100  wanted the girl back, hub he - wanted  to keep the money. So the girl was  abducted. At least that is how the  story runs in' Nelson. There were  three Chinamen concerned in ��������� the  abduction. _They dress, d the girl in a  suit of boy's clothing, *nftei-.���������.the,, Eiig;  lish fashion and took passage with her  to the United'States. "'Now the  Chinamen aroiirid Nelson'. "No savee  girl," and Lun Foo refuses to be comforted. However he is.not neglecting  to advertise for the girl. Here is a  copy of his pathetic advertisement ns  it appears in the Nelson Miner:  TO WAH CHUNG.  v Revelstoke, B. C.  Some one took my girl away.dressed  in English clothes. Looks like a Jap  girl.

IT IS AJWYSTERY  The Columbia River Gives Up Another  One  of   Its   Victims���������Man's   Identity  Unknown���������Nothing on His Person to  Indicate Who He Is ��������� Body Interred  Trail Ureek News:    The body of a  man   whose   identity   hns   not  beon  established, was found in the Columbia on   Tuesday   of  this   week, just  helow   the   brickyard.    The remains  were    buried'   Wednesday from the  undertaking   establishment of   Clark  and Binns.  Arthur Schneider was coming up  the river in a canoe Tuesday and  found the body face down in the eddy  at the brickyard. He came to town  and notified Cuptain Devitt, who  made an examination for signs of  violence, but found none. The coroner  was notified, and as an inquest was  not deemed necessary, burial was  ordered. Indentions were that the  body had been in the water perhaps  six weeks. ��������� ->  The man was apparently five feet  ten inches with a normal weight of  163 pounds. He had a small moustache, prominent teeth, and on the  little finger woro a gold ring with a  double heart. He wore a new pair of  shoes, two pairs of trousers and a"  negligee blue-check shirt. In the  pockets were some' samples . of silk  ribbon and a bunch of keys. There  was nothing in the way of pnpors to  determine the man's identity.  Tho remains were interred Wednesday morning, and in the absence' of a  minister, Captain Devitt rend the  Church of England burial servico.  - A description of the man has been  sent tocRevelstoke to see if he is one  of several recently drowned in the  Upper Columbia. ���������Trail' Creek -News.  THE I OWN OF FERGUSON  OCCUPIES   A   VERY    ENVIABLE  POSITION  IN THE CENTRE OF THE MINES'  Mr. J. M. Robin-op. president of the  Commonwealth Mining and. Development Co. of Canada, was in, town a  few days ago on his way to Vancouver. To a Hekald man Mr. Robinson  said it was the intention of his company to pnsh tbe development of the  Ethel mineral claim which he bonded  recently ab Trout Lake, And they  would ship the high grade ore which  will be taken out in the course of  opening up {the mine. Mr. Robinson  believes bis company has secured a  most valuable property in the Ethol.  It is a mine from the grass roots, he  says, carrying values in gold, silver  and copper, ranging from $70 to $2400  to the ton. Tho upper tunnel is only  in 10 feet, but even from this prospect  hole seven tons of high grade ore has  been shipped and twice that amount  of low grade stuff lies on the dump.  While here Mr. Robinson received  word from men working at the mine  to the effect that the ore body had  been discovered in a second tunnel  150 feet helow the upper one, and that  the quality of the ore there is if anything better than that taken from the  upper tunnel.  The Commonwealth Mining Co.  also own seven claims on the north  fork of the Lardeau, upon which sufficient development work has been  done to secure a. crown grant. Next  spring further development will be  done on these properties. While the  head office of the company is at Peach-  land, in the Okanagan valley, it is their  intention to do business through the  Imperial Bank here, this being the  most convenient' banking point to  Trout Lake.  Speaking of tbe genernl outlook for  the Trout Lake district Mr, Robinson  said that when the railway made it-  way into that district its interests  would expand rapidly. It has already  been demonstrated that there are  large  deposits of rich ore there and  KOOTENAYJIAILWAYS  From the Noison Economist)  At the present moment the railway  situation in British Columbia nays the  British Columbia Review, of" London,  England, is assuming an aspect which  gives abundant promise of great extension in the near future. In Kootenay, especially, where the harvest of  traffic���������now by no means insignificant  and promising immense uUiniato  increase���������is recognized as wholly  desirable by the great railway system,  the competitive ora has already commenced. Competition once established  in a district such {as this gives  unbounded possibilities to the development of the country not only by the  general reduction of rates, but by the  increased area of country in immediate  reach of the alternative system. Both  these elements of prosperity are now  being experienced in Kootenny,which,  Although comparatively speaking,  a very new country, is served by two  great railway systems in direct competition with one another. -  A POPULAR.CONCERT  British Columbia's Advantages  To the capitalist aud investor British Columbia present one distinct advantage, viz., it is under the British  flag, and consequently every assurance  is given that laws will be properly ad-  minst.red and every protection given  to life and property. It is also a great  advantage to the country that it has  practically been brought within easy  touch of the great commercial centres  of the world, since al mott any portion  of it, except those outside railroad  communication, can be reached within  a fortnight after leaving London, the  greatest possible comfort being afforded moreover both by boat and rail, to  the traveller,���������London Times.  The Prairie. City' Quartette" Holds-Forth  in Tapping's Theatre To'Nij#it  The    Prairie    City   QTiartette   will  appear in Tapping's Theatre tonight  and a musical treat is in store for those  i *"���������  who attend is assured.     The ' Calgary  Herald of Saturday says:-  " The Alberta Music Hall contained  a large audience on Friday night to  listen to a concert by the Frairie" City  Quartette, consisting of Mr: aud "Mrs.  Stantey Adams, Miss Nellie Campbell,  and Fred Kennedy, all of Winnipeg.  The programme consisted'of songs hy  "Miss~Campbell"anct-Mrr=AdiniiSr cornet-  solos by Mr. Kennedy and piano selections by Mrs. Stanley*Adams.  Mr. Adams' bell like baritone hits  considerably miprOvfed since his last  visit and each of his songs was encored  as were also his duets with Miss  Campbell.' His "B'indolero" and  Molloy's "Carnival"* not only' suited  his voice but were sung with much  spirit nnd ' artistic t..*'te_ ��������� though"'  occasionally, both his low" and high  notes lacked clearness.  CalgaiiaoS'-liave heard few better  vocalists than Miss Campbell. Her  contralto is singularly clear and' her  expression full of feeling ami passion.  She was (lesei-vedly encored.  Mr. Kennedy's cornet' solos were  Roinewbat of a novelty. He played a  triple-tongued p-lka nf Raiwlinson's  with good execution and- 'was encored  for each appearance.  Mrs. Adams' piano solos werfe also  pleasing and ��������� took asr will as such  selections usually do.  Two popular features of "the programme,'- given, as extras, were a-  couple of 'coon' songs and the lively  patriotic i* Soldiers of the Queen.**' the  latter sung by Mr. Adams in uniform."

The New Lieut^Governor  From The Calgary Herald  According io our Ottawa telegrams  the vacancy caused by Lieutenant  Governor Cameron's: untimely death  has been filled and the recipient of  the honor is Mr. A. E. Forget. Whilo  some surpise will be caused by the appointment it cannot be said that Mr.  Forget will not fill the position acceptably. He is a western man, one  of the oldest timers in the country,  tocially a gentleman oC refinement and  education, and Madame Forget will be  a charming Governess. It may also be  .aid that Mr. Forgct's intimate know  ledge of Territorial  affairi". obtained  as clerk of the North West Council at j  liattleford and later at Ilegina, as i  Catholic member of the defunct Board |  o[ Education, and as Indian Com- i  missioner, duality him to assist the I  Executive with useful advice. The 1  new Governor is a strong Liberal, a J  Roman Catholic and a- genial anil ���������  ���������.ourteous   French   gentleman.  So much for Mr.' Forget personally.  Tbo policy which dictated his appointment is another story. A new precedent has been established and iu our  opinion not altogether a wise oue.  Hitherto it has been the rule to select  our Lieutenant Governors from the  ranks of public men. successful or  oherwlse. who while not necessarily  attaining any particular pre-eminence  In Parliament have at least rendered  ���������ome service to the political party  .WW-"- happens at the time to be ln  power. It Is true that Mr. Forget has  done -"ervlce to the Liberal party���������  ,T������r~~ valuable service. But it was  done .while he was in,receipt of a considerable salary from the public purse.  He was a government? employee, und  if the same penalty for active partisanship had obtained under the late  government as ts bo rigidly enforced  by the present, Mr. Forget would, long  ago have ceased to'-be a civil servant.  In so signally rewarding partisanship  _in_one__of_i is_^pjli_^ajsliwliilei_as signally punishingConservatives .or~the~  same offence the government has set  a precedent that cannot be other than  viciously demoralizing in its effects.  For this reason, while cordially crediting Mr. Forget with all the virtues  necessary to grace the gubernatorial  throne The Herald has no hesitation  In deprecating the initiation of a sy������-  tem which musr ultimately result in  the prostitution of the civil service to  political exigency.  A New Robinson  Crusoe  London's popular sensation this  Bummer, next to the Hooley scandals,  has beon Louis do Rougcmont's story  oT his adventures on a desert island,  a story which if true puts De Foc'k  completely in the shade. De Rouge-  mont, who is a quiet nnil modest  Frenchman, lias successfully emerged | _  from searching cross examination by  Dr. Tyler, Dr. Scott Keltic nnd other  experts and his talo has boon deemed  no far worthy oC credence that he was.

One day, alter a  lonely  existence  of several years, he  saw a raft drifting toward tho shore.  Ho  waded  out  and  pulled  it  in,  although  beset  by    sharks  and,  found  tliat there wero four human beings on  the raft,  a man, a woman anil    two  boys.

how we are geting along. We arrived
hero on tho _th inst with out any mishaps, which is better than a great
many others have done. This past
three weeks we have been.up this d���

with nut any success. Big Bear McLean was the cause of it. The Chicago boys are all -camped alongside
of us, also several other outfits, and
McL." is now on his:third trip .up the
bike with two Indians. We met him
Monday night on Stone island, , but
could get nothing out of him only that
he was going up the Liard river, and
was fillling in the time waiting for
the provisions that ave coming down
froin' the Landing. " So it is hard to
say what is going to como out of it.
T will be'glad when we are" safe and

there was a man lost overboard by
the name of Hoffman", and tho balance
ot the fellows had to throw over most
of their cargo to keep the scow froin

so you can imagine the predicament
she was in.    '
Doubtless . you remember the Mc-
Clintic" outfit; well, he had his steamer sink about six miles off Hay liver
last week and lost nearly everything
in her. Still I hope we will make it

One day last week "John Cowan, of
Spiingbank,  had  quite  an; adventure
with- a bull    on  the    prairie,   -which
might have resulted    seriously.    ;. He
was proceeding along the road in the
neighborhood      of :  Peppers'    spring,
when the bull espied.; him    and immediately gave chase.   There was no
fence near and  consequently  nothing
for  it but a'straight'stand up fight.
Mr. Cowan  .had    a cane'���.'��� with    him
/which he used.to best advantage;-but
the blows seemed    only; to infuriate
the bull,.- and  Mr;  Cowan  was nearly
tired out when he bethought him of a
crook on the upper end of- his cane.
He succeeded  in hooking this in the
ring of the bulls nose and then proceeded to flog him till he roared, and
bellowed piteously.   He then released
him thinking   he would    be left   in
peace, but such was not the case as
his lordship returned to the attack at
once, and Mr. Cowan   was   glad   to
make his escape between "some cattle
which had gathered round durlngthe
melee.   This animal has quite a reputation, being formerly owned by T. A.

Colonel Jake Haager is one of tbe most  gallant as well as one of the handsomest  men wbo ever sat In the chair of the chief  ot police and bossed the bobbies ln blue.  He is a native Kentuoklan, full of respect  for tho fair eox, gentle as a summer aephyr  and as foil of sympathy as a oan la of oovo  oysters. Tot upon ono occasion he drow  back his fist and gave a woman a blow ln  tho face that shook her from the tip of he-  velvet toque to tho end of her gum overshoes.  In days gone by tbo notorious Carrie  MoBrldo, who is now dead, was noted as  the worst woman In tbe city.

Ont of their meager wages thoy bad to replace the uniforms ihe destroyed, andthol-  families suffered ln ooniequenoe.

As soon  as sho saw him she said:  "Since whon did all yon boys get on  the police force? ._ Woll, I'll just take a fall  out of youi"  Then she drew book her flst and prepared to give him ��������� beating. Like a flash  tho flst of the young man shot ont, and  Carrlo dropped with a dull thud against  the Iron door of the station. With a dazed  loot on her bloated. fnc������ she arose and  staggered 'toward him.- Down'she went  again as suddenly as before. Balsing herself on one elbow, sho contemplated hlni  for a moment and said*.  "Say, you're all right I'll give up,  and'you'll nover have anymore trouble'  with roe."..
