Boys' Frieze  POLITICAL POW-WOW  A gathering of several of the political sachems took place in this city,  when representatives were present  from Victoria and the Island as well  us from various sections of the Main-  laud. Amongst other things, it is  understood that matters relating to  the approaching session of the Local  Legislature, and the selection of a  Speaker, were discussed. The government and its supporters realize that  their tenure of oflice will he" a, very  short one. In fuel, the" traditional  silken cord is nothing as compared  with the slim chances the present  incumbents of office possess for the  carrying on much longer the affairs of  the country. The probabilities of an  early general election were likewise  discussed, and-the decision arrived at  was that in tho event of the government being defeated and an appeal  made by it to the country, it was  necessary that time should he taken  by the forelock and steps at once had  looking to the organization of tho  government supporters whether of  Liberal or Conservative convictions.  Some of those present were hostile to  the introduction just yet of party  politics. A few expressed themselves  as being certain that were this done  the chances, for the piebald government, otherwise known as the. Semlin-  Cnttrin-jtfiu'tin-Hume-McKechnic combination would be exceedingly slim.  The policy of the government in decapitating so many of its officials  was likewise . discussed, the general  opinion being thut the carrying out of  the spoils' system was the only correct  one and that tho Government was  quite justified in making a complete  in this respect, the majority of those  psesont endorsing the theory thut "to  the victors belong the spoils.*' It was  likewise hinted, and that very strongly  that the time- was-fast. approaching  when there should be a distinct cleav-  sge between the meinhers of tha  government.-- of Conservative anel  Li!~.pral cor.vie!ions-;.i .*-.������s claiming" ,t o-  be familiar, with existing..conditions  asserting- that mutters could not  progress-much longer as they were  now d-.ing and that the lime was ripe  for a change.���������Yaiicemver World.

Greenfield,  assistant P. O. Inspector arrived in  Trout Lake City, He inspected the  office here and left on Wednesday for  Ferguson to instill the postoffice tliere.  Mr. Greenfield was very much gratified at the way the" money order  department was conducted in Trout  Lake and complimented Postmaster  Currie on his excellent management.  He said tbat as regarded the bulk of  the business transacted through the  money order.departinent, it compared  favorably with any other oflice of its  size in the piovince.  .Hugh McPherson is making a shipment of iiver 7 Ions of ore from the  St. Elmo. Mr. McPherson for some  time past has been working on this  property, which is located near the  True Fissure on Great Northern  Mountain, with very gratifying  results. A very strong lead has been  exposed and promises to develop into  something very good as depth is  gained. Assays of the ore give: The  galena 210 ounces with a high percentage of lead and about $8 in golel and  tlie carbonates 55 ounces silver. 33 per  cent, lead and $-1 gold. Craig & Hillman have the work of rawhiding the  ore in hand.  THE MASQUERADE BALL  NEW SET Ot OFFICIALS  Mr. J. D. Graham Appointed Government Agent for Northern British  Columbia.  A new set of provincial government  ollicials will leave for th" north next  week to take over thn offices in the  most northerly district of British  Columbia, including llie Atlin Lake  countiy. It, has been known I'or some  lime that dipt. Runt, who recently  arrived from the mirth, had been recalled mid that Mr. J. McKenna  had been instructed to temporarily  take charge of the oflice of the mining  recorder and government agent.  Now the government has decided  upon an entirely new set of officials  al the bead of whom will be Mr. ..'. D.  Graham, of Revelstoke, who has been  appointed government agent with  large discretionary powers. Mr.  Graham was for sonic years (jolt!  commissionu'- for a section of West  Kootenay, resigning to accept the  position of local manager of the Gold  Fields of British Columbia, Limited.  He is also to be accompanied by Mr.  J. H. Brownlee, the provincial land  surveyor, who, as slated recently, will  determine the boundary line "where  necessary and do what other surveying  is required.  Speaking of the appointments, Pre-  miur Semlin yesterday said that both  officials hud necessarily been given  large discretionary powers. They  will have jurisdiction over the whole  of the new northern district, and will  establish -their headquarters where  they consider most convenient for the  largest number of miners. The appointment of assistants will likesvise  be left in their hands, As to policing  tho district " the Premier said there  were already a number of officers  there.

I want the money thns invested  to put into my increasing tailoring  business.

For  this reason I will confine inyself in  future strictly to the tailoring business.

The music furnished hv Mr.  and Mrs. Mill ward, of New Uenver,  was excellent. The ladies' costumes  sho_w_i-'cl_e".o.nsiderable skill Jn_ making  and must have taken much l'niiir~aiTei~  money to complete. Many of the  gents' costumes were sent from \V. II.

On Monday the Harry Lindley Co.  opened the new opera Iioufo with a  piece entitled ''The Widow Hunt'  There was a fairly good attendance.  The company shows' marked improvement since its last visit, and the  specialties are. very good. Madame  "Atlantis is really well worth seeing.  The house itself is still slightly in the  1-iuV, so to spe^ak, but great improvements are promised by* tlie energetic  proprietor, R.

Goldwin Smith, in the Weekly Sun,  touches upon two matters which at  the present time have.an interest for  the people of this province, and for  the members of Premier Semlin's  cabinet. He says: " Lord Aberdeen's  parting admonitions to us are a well-  paid judiciary and a permanent civil  service. The judiciary ought to bo so  paid that the bench may attract ability  from the bar. If is not nee-essary that  the salary of a judge should for this  purpose be equal to the income of a  leading barris-ter, since the judgeship  attracts by the dignity and security  of the position. But it is good economy to pay the judges well. England  finds that it is, and she pays her  judges at a rate fur beyond our scale  or means. Time is saved and appeals  nre prevented when tbe judge is strong  enough to have full control of his  court.'-'  Affairs in the Yukon  One of the latest to testify to the  improvement eif things under the  Ogilvie regime in the Yukon is Mr.  Woodwoith. Iiiirrisli'i-. late of Eel-  monton. who sends out a letter for  publication that is full of intei est.  '���������Ogilvie has come in." he says, and  the reign of terror is over. Men  breathe more' freely and ji sense "of  security prevails that has hitherto  never "existed." The "affairs of the  postoffice which have been a fruitful  source of complaint, have been  straightened out and proper accommodation has been provided for the  various government oHices. In addition" to the latter, regulations are  enforced whicli afford reasonable  facilities lo tbe public for the dispatch  of business without, the exaction of  blackmail. This would seem lo have:  been one of the crying necessities of  the place, as clerks are said to have  made from S100 to S500 ft day in illicit  fees, and some are. now worth their  hundreds of thousands of dollars.  That a period has been put to this  scandal is in itself cause for congratulation. Old officials have gone out,  and new, and on the whole lietter  ones have been put in their places.  But one wonders what they succeeded  in pocketing, when subordinates have  lieen able to make such comfortable  fortune*.  In connection with the ball to be  given by Fire Brigade No. 1 or. the  10th it was decided hy the ball commiltee last night to have  a   regular  I supper instead  of the usual refresh-  | inents.  Are Unexcelled for Comfort and Safety  ���������Only 1200 of a Population in  Revelstoko���������The Scenery Along the Route���������-.  ��������� Thc   Halcyon   Hot   Springs���������Life at  the Favorite Summer Resort  After leaving Sicamous   thn  princi-.  pal diveision  for the   traveller  is to.  nave   his   breakfast  on one    of   the-  delightful dining cars that the C.P.R..'  run over the line  between  Vancouver,  and Montreal, wherever good wayside,  hotels are not available at meal hours..  Scarcely, however, has the last mouth-,  ful been swallowed  when  tho express,  which, since emerging from the Engle-  puss", has crossed the Columbia river  liv means nf a bridge half a mile  long,  runs into Revelstoke, a railway  divisional point,  and  the.-entrance to  the  wonderful Kootenay mining country.  With a population of some  1200.  and.  an altitude of some 1.4-75 feet, "Revel-,  stoke is a queer sort of twin  city,  one  point being clustered around the C. P.  R. station, whilst the other lies on the.  banks of the Columbia, a considerable-  distance away. ...  But it is chiefly as the gateway, to.,  the district where Nelson, Rossliind,.'.  Tiail and the Slocan camps are situ-.;  ated that Revelstoke- now claims;  public attention, for leaving the -main t  transcontinental route at lhis point, a  branch line conuects with the Arrow--  head steamers, and within a ,few-*  miuiites of the departure of the ..east-  bound express you tind yourself safely"'  ou board the triiiu  GOING  INTO KOOTEX.vy. "  For 2S miles the line skirts tho shore-,  of   the Columbia, now   no   longei. a,,  river of whirlpools aud rapids,  a ruiiss .; "  of turbulent waters such .-ui fought ita ."  way round the northern heights of the,  Selkirk  range,   but on   the  contrary,*"-  weary of the struggle for right-of-way "  the  stream,   having    overcome    all .- -  ohstacles.hereflows along to the sunny . ,  south in placid fashion,  until  at the .  top. of   the" Upper    Arrow   Lake   it.  broadens   out,  still    further    into     a ~  splendid    sheet    of   unruffled  water, '.  where a cluster of wooden honsos -auJ.^. ���������  a  wharf    fringe     the     nawow ledge J -  between    the  -mountains   and * rock-  slrewn beach.  Of all lbe excellent boats run by the .

The variety of the-t  mountain scenery between A rioivliead  and  Robson   is"  unsurpassed   iu   the-  province, for on either hand  cliff' and  crag  alternate with   wooded   ravine;-.  whilst down   to  the shore  slope the-  cleared  townsites   of   many   a  small  .  settlement.

Halcyon is indeed,  a marvellous health resort, having only,  sprung into public notice   during   the  past.few month*, since the Hon. C. H.  Mcintosh, ex Lieut-Governor of N. W.  Territories, took holel   of. lhe   locality  and erected   a   bathhouse,   hotol   nnd  Siinilari'.uu. well worthy of patronage,  close to some highly beneficial natural  springs, the analysis of which (made in  the Edinburgh City laboratory)  show  them to c-ontain a iai-ge proportion   of.  silica ind alkaline salt, also a considerable amount of sulphuretted hydrogen,  and   that   rare   substance     lithia.   A  doctor and trained nurse being always  in residence, people who are really   ill  can s-afely repair there for   treatment,  whilst capital boating and   fishing   attract summer visitors in   si-arch   of a.  pleasant resort for a holiday.  One great advantag*1  pos=essed  by  the Halcyon Springs  lies  in  the  fae"t  that   tbe'y   are     n.ost   palatable,   anel  when aei-ited fot ni a  deiigliLft.l  table  water.    In order to aerate  and   bottle  in huge quantities tlie company   who  own the springs are putting  np  buildings 'mil   machinery,   so   that   before  long they will be in a position  to supply the rapidly increasing  demand nil  c.vt������r the province,  and  as  they  have  quantity   and quality   at   their command the   enterprise  promise.,  to  become a large ami flourishing industry.;  Life at this resort  is  very  lazy  and"  healthy, coii-.istiiig of a  combination  of pine air. mineral baths,  good  food,  and rest of  mind  nud   body.    To  the  immense  mining population  close nt  band it w ill prove a givat   boon,   for  m.'ti hurt   through  accident*,  or disabled through  rheumatism,  etc.,  will'  Snd good treatment and relief.

Why France Backed Down���The Mansion    House   Meeting���Naval   Preparations Still in Progress.
From  Our  Owu  Correspondent. "'
London, November 10.���All immediate danger of war betwesn England
and France is at an end, to the great
relief of thoughtful people in this
country, though the enormous naval
prepartations still going on point to
some question yet unsettled. . What
that question may be, or where, is
still pure speculation outside of
inner official circles.
Lord' Salisbury's conduct of
troublesome Fashoda incident
been almost universally commended.
He has been firm yet conciliatory, insisting on British -.rights, yet allowing for Fraud's diflicull position. At
first he said he would not negotiate
about Fashoda. Afterwards he noi only
negotiated but suggested a loophole
Some of the extremists have heen taxing him with cowardice or worse. The
best answer to these lunatics is the
present condition oi affairs in Paris.
France is tottering on the brink of
civil war. .Many men in France think
that civil war can only be avoided
by proclaiming a v.-at- against a foreign power. These men argue that
a foreign war is better than a civil
war. even though France may get
beaten in the struggle. Militarism
has brought France to this pass���that_
" ~~etVii~reif~~~~~S'~"ceri-ibi~fi"f
it  must "choose
evil anei another.
It is stated that the French minis-'
try was large*!:.*  influenced  in its de- |
cision with regard to Fashoda by pres-'
sure.jof  private  representations  from '
various  towns   in   France.    Whon    a
rupture became probable the cominor- j
cial   interests   of   tho   countiy    were j
seriously alarmed,  and  protests    and j
memorials.in favor of peart literally i
showered .jipon   the  ministers.    From !
Paris alone, came a large load of ap- I
peals to the same C-Tecl. and M. Luc-
kroy, thB minister of marine, looking
at the war from a pur-'l" -..aval standpoint,   made  capitulation  a  condition
of  his  acceptance  of  olIW.   Th-.'  new
minister,   who   is   the     Ber^i-fori!     ot
France in the fl~"~i development, saw
clearly  that   the   French   navy  in   it>
present   condition   is   utterlv   imorpial
to that of Great Britain.    The ru-i_ln-
al object of the authors o: the _M_3.1t Ii-
nncl   expedition   was   to   draw   a   line
from the Congo to the R"i! sea. which
would cut the road from Cairo to the
Cape  in  two as effectually as  if mi��
drew  a  knife  acros=  the  r��ntre  of _
wasp.     Is   Kraiic   prepared   to   -give
up the dream? If not. much mor? ob-
viouslv remains.
Lord Salisbury was so profuse in
his compliments to the Sirdar that it
seemed as if his speech would be entirely complimentary, but when he
came to speak oi Lord Kitchener as a
"splendid diplomatist" as well as a
great soldier it was divined that
eo'me important political revelation
was imminent, and his. hearers hael
not lonp to wait. They almost held
their breath as the prime minister,
after a half ironical allusion lo the
excellent pcisonal relations which the
Sirdar had established with M. Marchand. went on to mako the momentous announcement that lie had reef ived that afternoon the informal ion
that the French government had c-omc
to the conclusion that the occupation
of Fashoda was of no sort of value
to the French republic-. As soon r.s
the company realized what this meant
a storm of laughter and cheers swept
through the hall, and Lorel Salisbury,
as British foreign minister, vras suddenly elevated to a pinnacle he has
not occupied for years. Lorel Salisbury went on to inform the excited
audience that the French government
hud added liinlre even lo tho iniiiieiii-
orliil fume of lhe Uritish iii'iny, and
more limn thal.il had paid oil' a debt
which for l.'l yours lay near the heart
and the conscience of every Ui'itoii.
Thoy hud not spoken of it���they had
nol liked lo liiink of It���but deep
down the memory had boon with them.
Moreover, If il bud not heen for "lho
defeat of lhc Khalifa, il was perfectly
certain lhat iho extermination of llie
European outposts of elvillztilio i
might have resulted, and ho thought
we hud a right, not io ill feeling nr
jealousy, hul to the largest mciuiire
of gratitude from those nations whose
territory bordered upon that of the
The humorous man of the Daily
Chronicle appears to be gifted with
a fair amount of invention, as witness tho following: "Thoy were discussing whether tliere was ono righteous man in England whose cupboard
con lui ned no skeleton. The younger man mentioned thc namo of n well
known dean. Tho older scoffed ami
guaranteed that tho bishop of (lie. future had a story in tha past. Furthermore, ho offered to supply proof. Wilh
this purpose in view, on a. Saturday
morning he wired fo lhc deanery. "Fly
at onco she has confessed all." By the
kilo boat thai, night there was one
dean loss in Hhigland. and onc more
on the English channel.
Rumor is busy in naval circles, as to
the precise destination of the Servico
squadron now assembled " at Plymouth. That an important cruise is
before it is certain, having regard to*
tho 'immense pains thai have been
taken to fit it out for active service.
One theory which finds wide acceptance amongst those who arc in close
touch with the higher naval authorities is. (hat Delagoa bay is the destination of tho squadron. The suggestion is that the government have had
a deal with Germany in the exchange
of territory, and llint thoy iiro on thc
point of taking possession of thai position, and Hint, desiring to forestall
any jiossible hostile aclion on the part
of any of the powers, have decided to
solid out a force that will he irresist-
nble. -
Although    rigorous steps have boon
laken   during   the last,  few   years   tb
nut   down   the  abominable    crime  of
lese   majesle   in   the  German   cmpiic,
oflciic.es   of   this   kinel   somehow   still,
abound.    The   latesi  transgression  of
the law  which  hedges  round   the  divinity of. the kaiser,  is a  young lady
clerk of Breslau.    Franlcin Dyke saw
a portrait of the    Emperor    William
hanging in Iho window of n shop, and
she  was  overheard   making what  the
poi ice considered a   "disrespectful  re
mark"  about the original.    For  tliis
heiiious crime she was arrested,  aud
has  just   been    condemned     to    two
months   imprisonment.        On   Friday,
1*1 err Hardin, the distinguished od'i'tor
of  the   Ltikuiifiii,  one  of    the    most
thoughtful   of   Gorman   reviews     was
sentenced   to  six    months    imprisonment in a fortress for publishing an
article   in   which   the   authorities    _~-
toccd criticism of the government ar.d
its  august   head.    For   venturing    to
print ii  poem,   in  which  the kaiser's
pilgrimage   to   Palestine   was   treated
without proper seriousness. Herr Lan-
has   been   thrown  into  prison.     It  is
��� sad io think that after all thc lessons

At lho summit  itself the boat was
