COME IN AND  SEE MY   CHOICE  AND SELECT STOCK OF  English Tobaccos  PIPES, CIGARS, CIGARETTES &c  Books and Stationery  a complete line  Opposite C.P.R.* Station  "The arrest of Louis Meyers at Itevelstoke, B. C, the other day for counterfeiting., ten-dollar gold coins reminds  me," said Detective A. "VV. M.-u-sh, of  niy experience with tin's gimp; in this  state iti 1892.  "I arrested and convicted Gonzales,  Guadello and Meyers for having in  their possession counterfeit five" and  ten-dollar dies, and succeeded, after a  hard fight, .in sending the three of  theni to San"Quentin for ten years  each.  "This was probably the smoothest,  gang of sure-thing and confidence operators that ever struck this coast.and  their maimer of operating was the  most unique of any that I have ever  seen or heard of in a lifetime experience.  "In 1SS8 'Sleepy Jake,' well known  in the east, came to San Francisco and  soon gathered-a little band of choice  spirits around him, consisting of the  above named operators. --   >  "Gonzales, who was a full-blooded,  light complexioned Spaniard, and  could talk French, Italian, Spanish  and'English with fluency, had come to  San Francisco from llie City of Mexico with.his two companions, Meyers,  a Jew, and Guadello, an Italian, and  nn artistof no mean ability.  "At first they began operations on a'  small scale and were caught by Cajitain L. W. Lees, of San Francisco, but  could only be convicted of it misdemeanor and Gonzales, Guadello and  Meyers were given a year each. "Sleepy  Jake'' succeeded" in giving a bond,  which he promptly jumped and escaped. -  "It was while in jail that Gonzales,  a watch and clock* maker by -trade,  studied out and after.his release, made,  as 1 said before, the iiio.st'iinique piece  of machinery 1 have ever'seen.  "It consisted of a cylinder of brass  about eight inches in diameter; which  opened in the center, and swung hack  on a hinge resting on-the table on  three legs. At the top was a small  funnel to pour. in the melted metal,  ln the center of the machine were two  dies of the most perfect manufacture,  one being the obverse and the other  the reverse ^side of a five-dollar gold  piece.        -  * . r  , "One of the legs of the machine,  however, worked as a lever, and on  being moved would slide a genuine  coin into the exact position of one of  these dies. This genuine coin would  be prepared in advance hy covering it  with a coating of base iiu-tal.  "The manner of securing the 'suckers' ' coin was this: Guadello, . who  was one of your well educated Italians, would secure a room in some  quiet lodging house, while Meyers or  Gonzales would steer the sucker.  "At a proper time on some dark  Tii"jht~the���������siicl~er~woul(l~We-brniighl.  into the room, darkly lighted. Then,  after carefully locking the door, Guadello would begin operations, with a  crucible, a small stove and all the tools  of a counterfeiter. Guadello woulil  heat his metal, pour it into tin*, funnel,  nntl hy touching the leg with his  finger, presto change, the genuine coin  would slip into I hi:'place of one of I ho  dies, and by turning over the machine  would drop on the table.  '���������Picking this up with a. pair of  pincers, Guadello would insert it into  a howl of acid, having the appearance  of water; a hissing, us if of hot metal,  would follow from tho acid eating olf  lhu base   inelal.   Then   it  would   be  Kartially polished and again taken in  and and dropped into another crucible of what looked like melted pold;  again taken out and rubbed with a  chamois skin, and the sucker would  lie handed what he supposed was a  counterfeit five-dollar piece, but what  in reality was a genuine five-dollar  piece. Of course it was ���������perfect., and  would stand examination.  "Gonzales would then take the sucker down to a cigar'Stand or saloon if  the sucker doubted, and in his presence would pass and change the piece.  On returning to the room it would be  explained to the sucker that thu operators needed money to liny material,  and for $500 he could have a third interest in the $5,000*worth of coin that  they could make, and that they would-  have to go to San Francisco to buy it.  "The counterfeiters' layout would  then ho placed into a valise and carefully locked up, Gnnzalles giving Ihe  key to the sucker to keep, as an evidence of good faith, till they got back  with thc material.  ���������'The sucker would sneak oil, dreaming of the fortune iu store for hiin,and  after holding the valise for days he  would finally break it, open and Uud  what? A brick and some clods of dirt,  while the gang were far away in new  fields.  "In most cases the 'sucker' would  never'squeal,'but one finally did and  I got on to their trail, They had  turned a trick on a man whose name  nuver figured in the cast; hen*. A man  who keeps a small grocery store gave  me the details, and then it'wa-s nioulli.s  before I was able to get cases against  them.  "I captured Gonzales also at Delano  for swindling a waiter nut of $.70. and  Meyers and Guadello at Madera for a'  $250 trick of the same kind. They  were all throe convicted and only released after serving their timo lust  September, when they were at once  put under surveillance by .secret service agent, R. S. Browne of San Francisco.  "Evidently in going to British Columbia Meyers must have thought tliey  would escape the vigilance of the secret service department, but on information received from Secret Service  Agent Browne, Meyer,- wan laplured,  but Gonzales and Guadello have .-.o fur  e-icapeil.  "I think on investigation it will turn  out to be the old game, although  Guadello is an old counterfeiter and  perhaps may have turned his attention to actual counterfeiting. Take  them all in all, they are the smoothest  gang I have ever dealt with, and I  couid fill a book with what I know, of  their different games of sure-thing  work.  "They did not confine themselves to  this one game. This little incident  will show the resources of Gonzales.  "I had taken him to Delano for  identification and,turned him* over to  Constable On* for safe keeping. Gonzales on his arrest did not have enough  money to pay his, hotel bill, about $10,  and was nearly without money when  I took him back there. But he had  one of those showy fake gold watches  that cost about $3.50.  "Telling the proprietor, who was a  Frenchman, that he hated to go olf  without paying him, he' persuaded  him to take this watch, which Gonzales said he had bought for a present  for his wife, at i cost of $95. - lie succeeded in-getting from the Frenchman  a receipted bill and $25 to boot."        '���������  "As I subsequently learned from  Constable "Orr, Gonzales afterwards  worked off another -of these fake  watches on , the jailor here for about  $50 worth of board.  "In fact, Gonzales was a man, as he  told nie himself, that could be dropped  a stranger" mid broke in any city and  in half a day would-have $20 iu his  picket as a starter.  "One of the counterfeiting machines  I captured with this gang figures is  one of the -niost interesting"*relics on  file at the secret service department."  Los Angeles Express.

From present indications tliere will be more -money spent  in securing properties and more actual  development done.than theie ha5* been  during the past four or five years.  There .ire. at present several deals  pending which means a large expenditure of money. The principal deal up  to the present is that of the Bannock-  biirn, sold for $20,000 cash. This  would indicate, together with other  bonds taken and options secured, that  the value of Trout Lake mineral deposits is going to receive a thorough  test during the approaching season.  Of course this more favorable condition of things is ascribed to the very  favorable outlook for the construction  of a road through the heart of the  Trout Lake district, and we have no  doubt but that this is the principal  reason.  Trout Lake would have been a very  large shipping camp long since had it  not lieen for the high rate of the 1 transportation charges which prohibited  the low grade properties from being  .extensivelVidp.v:eTloped.i^Ninv_thatJ,liij3  drawback is in a fair way to being removed, it will be hut a very short time  until the great bulk of tho promising  properties will chauge hands or be  placed on a shipping basis Iiy tho present owners, whatever thu ciivum-  "���������taiscvs of the.-e poople may be.���������Topic  Waverley Mine.

WEDNESDAY;      MRACH  22.      1S99.  ICO MILES BY DOG TRAIN  ELECTION BETS  During the Territorial campaign last  fall   The  Herald      spoke      somewhat  6irongly  on  the pernicious results of  betting  on   elections. ���������    At  that  time  ihe opinion was expressed that if this  species of gambling wasn't preventable  'bv law it should be.     It is well known  that a bet cannot be recovered at law;  this  is  so  decreed      by  statute.      A  legal  friend  has furnished us with  a  copy of the. remarks of a judge oh a  case heard as long ago as 1785, before  the.  statute  referred   to  was  enacted.  This judge said:      "If you      put the  case of a wager between a voter and  another person who ia not one, it is a  palpable bribe, it is a sum of money  laid to procure a particular vote, and  that case cannot     be     distinguished  from the present (where both persons  were voters).    The bias is exactly the  same: it is a pecuniary compensation.  It is true, as the counsel     for     the  plaintiff said,  that  the law  leaves  it  to the voter to exercise his franchise  cr not: but it also requires him to be  _free till the last moment of giving or  T-itholding his vote: which" he cannot  be. If he hasJaid-such a wager as tho  present."     The point of which is, as  taken br The Herald    last    fall,' that  election  betting mischievously  interferes with a free ' expression      of the  will of the people     and should    ,not  therefore he allowed.  Winnipeg Tribune: C. Fraser, ot  Fort Chippewayan.is registered at the  Winnipeg. He left Chippewayan  about January, travelled by dog  trf-ln a distance of -IGO miles, and the  remainder of the distance by horse  to Edmonton. He says that the winter so far had not been any more sc-  cier. and he says that probably if the  vhitefish catch has been poor, how-  . \er, and he says that probably if the  government put iuto effect a regula-  lation limiting the fishing season as it  is in Edmonton, the Indians will  starve.  'Tt is understood," said Mr. Fraser,  that all the buffalo aro gone from  Canada, but I saw a herd not far  from Chijipewayan. I would say that  there are about 500 head o������ buffa'o  in that neighborhood. They are big  wood buffalo, and are increasing, as  the Indians are not, of cn-se allowed  to kill them. The musk ox is very  plentiful this year,, about 400 miles  further north than we are, and all  fur has not been under the average  this year. Tliere are about 500 Indians in the place, and a few white  men. A very few outside of those at  thc I-I. B. post."  Mr. Fraser and .1.

This is a deficit of S2.200 per day,  ci of J82S,000 a year.  In addition to this loss of $S2S,000  on the working of the post office in  Canada we pay $560,000 a year for the  carriage  of  mails  in  steamships.  So that in round numbers tho lose  is $1,3S?,000 annually.  They are going to put a tax on tea  to cover the Mulock deficit caused  iuigely by a two C2-1*: rate.

The alarming increase In national expenditures over  the ivater Ib, however, not due to postage Btamps, but to the increasing of  the strength of the navy. According  lo a London correspondent the most  remarkable Indications, however, of  the transition stage ia national  linanc*!. is the candor of the leading  Euclish journals*, in recommending  the- re-imposition of duties, which were  abolished when free trade was established as the permanent fiscal poliry  of the Uniled Kingdom. That great  organ of English opinion. The London  Times, has been publishing a series o������  important articles, by an expert on  finances o* the last 20 years, and. this  week, it virtually adopts his conclusion  that the time has como for eouslder-  Ing end revising the entire system o������  taxation. In a bold and comprehen-  ������ive way. (1  A physician and a lawyer occupying rooms in the same large downtown building met not long ago in the  lobby, says the Chicago Tribune. The  lawyer only has had his shingle out  i-ix months, while the physician has  been practicing for many years. Consequently the physician is inclined lo  use a condescending manner toward  the young lawyer and the young  lawyer respects the physician as a  man who has made his mark.  "You should  do something for that  cold," the physician said.  "What?" asked  tho lawyer respectfully, from force of habit.  Tlie physician made a few remarks  about the treatment of colds as tliey  rode up in the elevator. Thc other  day the lawyer received a bill for  "services rendered him" by the physician. By this time he had forgotten  that he ever had a cold or that he had  nipt the physician and listened to advice on colds because it is polite to do  so. AVith the bill in his hand he  sought out the physician, who explained the matter, saying lie need  not pay it at once unless it was convenient for him. Not wishing to make  au enemy of the young lawyer, he  talked of business and business dilliculties for half an hour, drawing the  young man out and giving him a  chance to talk. The next day the  l~h ysi-Cia n ___.i_ece.ivp il_a_j_.cheek_������o iu_S l_i r-  pcyment of tiie bill sent the young  lawyer, accompanied by a bill' with  the lawyer's name across the top,  v-hich called for ?10 for half an hour's  consultation the day before. The  physician promptly paid.  MEN  IN   BALL  ROOMS  REDUCTION IR   C.  P.  R. RATES  The Canadian Facific, we are  pleas*-*" to note, has made a reduction  of from 20 to 40 per cent on the rate  for liv*? Etock shipments from the  Vorth West Territories to Nelson and  ether po-fnts in the Kootenay. The  40 per cent reduction applies to live  eto'ck shipped from Macleod. This  Is due to the fact that former sblp-  Rrtnts from those Eohthern points had  fcj come Ausfl by way of Calgary,  whereas now they win he able to go  right through over the Crow's Nest  Pass road. Shipments of live stock  hound for Nelson will naturally go by  this route, no matter where they  come from; but shipments for the  Sloofa^vlllgti rxfuvM by Rovolstoke  '8*f WVl'iM -M~i.  It has been said that the modern  young man literally cuts but a poor  figure when he "takes the floor," and,  despite the fact that fancy dancing  has been quite recently a fashloualiij  craze, it cannot be justly maintain =.d  that the modern girl displays tlie grare  in the ball room as her mother and  grandmother before her. That young  men are positively awkward nowadays is not the least bit surprising,  In tho firnt place they get but littic  practice, it is practically by main  force that they are dragged into the  middle of the ballroom. So difficult,  indeed is it for lho hostesses to get  dancing men at all to tlieir ballsl  that it seems well nigh dangerous to  grumble at th . for.* who do come for  their inefficiency.  However, it. is not unreasonable lo  ask that the "smart" ball room should  ct.������e to be the scene of such clumsy  and graceless performances as it now  too frequently thc case. Apparently  it is-only when he is allowed to val.se  as lie pleases, to "scorch" to liis  lifart's content, to "clown" through  burn dances and reduce the lancers  to their lowest terms, that thc modern  young man will dance, and girls must  perforce adapt themselves to this  style or go partnerless. It has been  am-rted that it Is only among tlio  simpler classes nowadays that thc  poetry of motion  !���������* truly cultivated.  Society stands in need of a new  craze and something decidedly startling is always sought for. so possibly  lhe next thing will be that despairing hostesses will provide light fooled  men servants as partners for their  guests or organize balls where the  girls they invite may bo sure of securing an evening of real dancing with  yXftneVs Mrtsa ft*r th'e occasion.

CONHI'lTON OK It Iii") YARD  KIPLING  New York, March 14.���������Rudyard Kipling passed a restless nighl, suffering  a good deal of pain. As yet no ono  but his physicians, nurses and family  have scon liini.  This evening Mr. Uoubloday reported Kipling's condition as satisfactory  in the extreme, the physical suffering  of the patient being due to the resolution going on in tho lungs.

Azores  Islands, as being "wicked, malignant  nnd unfounded." Tho oilicials of the  company aiso declared tliat the  details of the break down of ihe Pavonia already known suO.iciently refute the "charges.'  It was gleaned from the crow, liow-  cicr, on their dispersal, that the  Pavonia had passed through a terrible ordeal. Her troubles began with  a terrific,, gale.on January ;10.- For  three days, the engines were slowed  and mountainous seas tossed the Pavonia   like ,a   shuttlecock.    Then   her  boilers began to move iu tlieir cradles PLOTTING AGAINST  and to bump against each ether. It  is not true, though, that they humped  her sides, for if this had been the  caso the crew say she would not have  lloated  long.  Eventually the engineers secured  tho boilers with ropes and chains and  the bumping ceased, but it was found  that the steam pipes had been broken.  The crew, it appears, never lost confidence though thoy assert that the  vessel rolled so tremendously that It  would have been possible sometimes  to walk on her Inner sides.  Three boats were lost, part of the  port rail -and the galley were washed  away and the bake houso was stove  in. Although the Pavonia now lies  at the dock, she presents a dilapidated spectacle.

He  has decided that Sweden and Norway  will send only one representative to  Ui'1 peace congress at The Hague. Tho  representative will probably be a  Swede.  Somo days ago war between Sweden  and Norway yas hinted at during a  debate in lhe Storthing and Colonel  Bassoo took the opportunity of pointing out that the Norwegian fortresses  were good for nothing in case of war.  The minister of war hotly contradicted the statement and several other  members also criticised Colonel Bas-  soe, but the wholo affair is causing  great uneasiness here as the mere suggestion of war between the sister  countries in parliament is proof of the  ioalousy which exists.  There was a popular demonstration  the day before yesterday against the  Crown Prince, Prince Gustaf, Duke of  Wormlaud, who was recently appointed regent on account of the illness of  his father. Kins Oscar II. The prince  was returning from the military club  when ho met a crowd of people who  booted him, hissed him. and peltee  lilm with snowballs.

Two  rival factions met last evening outside the Bonanza saloon and opened  fire. Five men wore killed, amongst  whom were Tom Toler, chief of  police; J. E. Hart, detective: Gosloe,  police sergeant; John Williamson,  sheriff; Louis Kinkley, driver of the  orewery wagon and Ed. Spears, who  was shot fatally in the neck. The  shooting grew out of the campaign  for mayor. This town has always  been notorious for shooting scrapes,  but this is the worst one w-e have  had yet. In the Flynn and Dolan  feud some years ago, Frank Flynn,  tne most celebrated gambler of his  dny in the south, together with two  other men, was shot to pieces on almost the same spot as the present  shooting occurred.

The finest ion of a smeltei' at Rovul-  i-loUo is run" which every now and  again crops up and attracts attention  fnr a while. It is a question which at  first sight seems to have, ninny point"-*  of view, as if the success of tlie establishment of smelting nnd reduction  works nn any large he lie depended on  a large number nf factors. Hut in  reality, as fur as richer load ores are  ciincerned, the (pi-st'ioii (if cheap  transportation appears Ic. In' llie only  ili'i-i.-ive feature in thu mailer.  Tin1 oxpt'iiencu nf llie snn-ll ing industry in the Stales shows that while  copper ore as smelted tn greatest advantage as noiir as possible In llie  points of production, silver-lead ores  can bj must sucrpssl'ully treated at  great transportation centres. Omaha,  Kansas City anil St. Louis are great  smelting cities, to which both the coal  nml ore li.i _ u t.o be hauled several hundreds of mill's, and the sufcess nf the  smelting industry at these points has  solely depended nn tlieir being great  railway centres, with exceedingly favorable freight, rales. As far as silver-  lead ores go this question of transportation is the vital one, and lhe others  are only secondary. It seems to Tnrc  llEit.M.n that the main point is considering the chances of success for a  smelting and reduction works in Revelstoke is to find out. whether the proposed company is strong enough, ir.  conjunction with the Revelstoke city  council and board of trade, to bring  sufficient pressure tn bear nn the C. 1?.  U. I.n give this place, rates on ore and  coal favorable enough to mike lhe  business here profitable. Neither the  rhi? year w ill Iw handled by the .Canada Dnip   ore nor tho coal is very far off, but the  0. P. R. lias the casting vote, at present, Willi a competing line running  in here, such as some people believe is  among thc possibilities cf tbe future,  tbe situation would be materially altered, and Revelsloke would present  ;i very" favorable location for the establishment of a large smelting and  reduction works. But we have to deal  with the situation as developed at  present, and up lo date the C. P. R.  hold all the trumps.  Granted the favorable freight rates  und the other points are easily dis-  enssed, a smelting works horo would  have thu whole of Kootenay lodraw  from. The question of the ore supply  is not confined, as some people appear  to imagine, to t.ho present, stage of development of the Liu-iU'.ui and Big  Bend districts. The ore produced in  tho Sincan would come here, just as  soon as any other place, other thing"  being equal. A great proportion of  it passes right through here now en  route to Omaha or Kansas City, hundreds of miles away. Il may bean  iuteresliii-rr exercise in statistics to figure out how much ore is actually  available in Uk- Lardeau right now.  It is not a great deal, and is not likely  to be very much increased in extent  until the railway runs llit'i.ugl: th"  district.
