The Lardean and Trout Lake  districts have, been on the eve of a  jump for a long time, but tlie certainty  of railways and competition is bringing property owners in that district  from all parts of the globe tn inspect  and develop their properties.

The   Police   Force   Will   Consist   of a  Chief aud Two Night Watchmen  The citv council held their usual  meeting liist night, all present excepi  Aid. Crnge. The coiiiiiiunic.it ions  weie of a pin ely oilicial cliaracler and  presented no points of interest. A  petition asking for i hydrant from  tlie residents ou .Mackenzie avenue  wns laid over.  The Public Works committee re-  couuiiouded ceit.iin .'mull appropriations for grading Second street.���������  Adopted.  The police commissioners reported  that, the police force would consist of  a chief and two night watchmen. T.  Bain hns been appointed chief at a  salary of $7.r> per month and 1.. Pluin-  nii'r and .1. Shaw night watchmen, al a  salarv of $110 per monlli.  Aid. McKechnie asked whether the  police commissioners or the' council  had the power of fixing the salaries of  the police?  Aid. Brown could not agree that the  town could pav a salary nf SCSI per  month to two policemen. One pnlice-  inn.ii was ennugli for the requirements  of the town. He moved thnt the  salary of the niglit watchman forthe  lirst four months should be. S3D per  month. He did r.ot believe that llie  city should spend all their money on  salaries.  Aid. McKechnie, while partly agreeing with Aid. Brown, pointed out thnt  by the Municipal Act,the whole matter  hiv in the hands of the commissioners  and all tlie council could do wis to  appeal against the salaries ������-et by the  commissioners to the Lieutenant-  Governor.  Aid. Kilpatrick said lhe object of  having three men was to alfnid protection to both ends of town. It would  lie impossible f'.'r oneuinn to look after  the whole town. He pointed our, lhat  tlie fact of tlie people in tlie west et.d  having paid for a night watchman out  of theirown pockets, showed tliat tliey  wished for justsuch protection as the  police commission was trying to givo  the whole town. The icport of the  coinmisMnner1* was adopted.  By In Mi No. 10, Trades License Bylaw,  was finally passed.  There witn a short discussion over  the letter read at the last meeting  from Messrs. Lawrence anil Gill  regarding the uction of Police Mngis-  tiatc Haig. lhe opinion being that ihe  council hnd no jurisdiction. The  letter was fyied.  Mr. Haig. who was present, asked to  he allowed to speak, and explained  that On the morning in quest ion he  was otily six minutes late. With i e-  gnrd to* the rest of the matter- he  agreed with Aid. Kilpatrick that the.  I'omuil had. no jurisdiction. T"  occasion complained of was the or  one on which lie had been*'late in  opening court.  ���������Aid. Grahame cited a case of Chas.  Fleming.-wliich had to be adjourned  by Mr. Coursier, as the police magistrate was not ou hand.  Mi. Haig said that tliere must be  some mistake about tho case.  ' The assessor was instructed by leso-  liiuon to start the assessment bv .Inly  1st and to have the roll completed by  October 1st.        .'  An inquiry from Aid. Grahnme  brought - out a veiy extriioidinni-y  svstem in vogue" in i-ohnectio'n with  the provincial assessment roll, which  seems never to lie closed nt all, ,-ulili-  tiotls to it being made right along, the  same official aci ing as assessor and  holding periodical courts of session  every three months to revise his own  assessment  Thecouncil then adjourned.

THE EIGHT HOUR LAW  There can be no doubt but that the  present condition of the province of  Britieh Columbia is sufficiently serious  to juBtify the calling together of the  legislature for the purpose of reconsidering the eight hour law. Mines  are shutting down in all directions;  transfers of mining property have  been abruptly arrested; the value of  developed properties is depreciating  every day. Meanwhile tho government  stands supinely by, waiting for no one  knows what. -  Not a word has been said by any of  ihe government papers with regard to  the trouble. While hundreds of men  are out ot employment, and tho value  of mining properties is steadily do-  creasing, ono government organ, writes  learnedly on foreign affairs while  another discusses on the ethics of  prize lighting. Meantime, the government itself is divided. Neither .Mr.  Martin nor Mr. Cotton daro say a  word, lest in so doing, he may alienate  from him the vote of a section of the  Vancouver electorate, to whom both  gentlemen, arc paying tho most servile  attention.  The province* is suffering severely  from tho effect of the hasty and ill-  considered legislation. Disputes have  arisen hetween the owners and miners,  and many mines havo already been  shut down altogether whilo tho shares  of still many more arc steadily decreasing in value. No step has, however, beea taken by "the government  for tho purposo of helping tho situation. Mr.1 Martin is willing fo sit by  and allow Mr. -Cotton to put his foot  in it if he can he induced to do so,  while Mr. Cotton awaits some exceptionally bad break from Mr. Martin.  Petitions and counter petitions asking  for the dismissal of Martin and Cotton are in circulation at present at  Vancouver.  Both petitions should bo signed  be signed with alacrity hy every good  citizen of British Columbia, for both  men are equally responsible for what  has taken place, and they are today  dragging the province with them on  their headlong race to ruin. The.  timo has come for British Columbia  to assert herself.

In the supplementary estimates at  Ottawa there appears an item of  $25,000 for the relief of the sufferers  by th ������ West Indian hurricane, hut  "no end of trouble" might be caused  if the government were to give any  compensation to Charles Hawkes, of  Calgary, for the slaughtering of his  Slandered horses.  The father of the new pugilistic  champion says he wishes the boy  would get licked so he'd quit the ring.  He thinks he'll never quit It until  he Is thrashed.

C.   C.  McCanl  of Calgary  Gives    an  Interesting     Account    of   a  Portion of liis Trip  The following extracts from a letter received from Mr. McCaul, Q. C,  who left here some timo ago for  Dawson, give a good description of  a portion of his trip:  S. S. Cutch, Port Essington, Skeena  River, British Columbia.  It is now 2:30 p. m. and we are just  leaving this port after being here  since daylight. Thc tide falling we  had to leave thc dock and anchor o;:t  in the in'.et, until the tide came in  again, and we were able to tie up at  tuc do.i'c again and unload.  1 cannot 31 tempt to describe the  scenery to jou en route, but It is a  succession of narrow channels, between pino (or cedar) clad und snow  topped mountains, varied occasionally  by a short run across some sound, or  entrance, the biggest stretch of open  water being Queen Charlotto sound,  whero we pitched and rolled a bit.  This place is an inlet surrounded  with splendid mountains; thc principal industry heing salmon canning,  thc population, about 2000 I should  judge, almost entirely Siwash and  Chinese. They arc all engaged either  in catching or canning salmon, except some few who hunt and trap,  the game Including black bear, wolves,  wolverine, marten, foxes, beaver,  otter (both land and sea) lynx, etc.  We saw some magnificent skins in the  warehouse here: and some lino specimens of carving in soft slate and  wood   by  Queen   Charlotte Indians.  Tho  salmon  cannery  was  most  interesting,  and   you   need  never   hesitate at eating any canned salmon, cx-  the whole operation  is most cleanly.  They   employ   in   one     cannery  hore  (Cunningham's)  about 150 hands besides somo 100 fishermen.   This is not  the   time   of   the   big  run,   but   it  is  he time of the big fish, and  we saw  several   over  70  pounds  each.      The  boats, which had been out since early  morning,   came   in   about  10:30   with  tho rising tide, each  with from four  to seven fish  (from about 20 to 701b).  Thc fish are handed to Siwashos (.iust  as they come  from  the beats)  about  six of them at a long table or counter  with a trough of running water running all   its  length.      These   fellows  cut off the heads, tails and fins, and  slit open the belly, and take out the  coarse   entrails;    aud   then   the   fish  arc slid through  to the other side of  the counter to squaws, who give them  their  first cleaning, all done in running  spring water.      Then  they  are  passed to another    batch   of squaws  (clean   and   neat)   who  scrape   them  again   most,    carefully-���������again     in   a  stream, running in a sort of trough,  of   spring   water���������and     who   scrape  thc scales away with a butcher knife.  Thty   arc  then   passed   to   a  cutting  board   where   a   sort    of     revolving  knife   with   blades   about   10   inches  cpart,   cuts   them   into  chunks,   and  theso chunks are then passed  to    a  brawny   Siwash   who   cuts   them   up  into   (let  us   say)   hunks,   of   about  half a pound each.   Pails full of these  hunks    are    then    carried    to    the  counters  where  the packers  are   (all  Siwash   women    and    all  neat  and  clean)   who   dress  off  the waste  and  prck the best of tho meat, (generally  cuttlng it a little liner)  into the tins.  Tbe puo'red  tlnB    then    pass  to the  "cleaners'*   who  wipe  them  carefully  with rug waste dipped in clean, fresh  ���������water.. Then the tins go to  another  table,  where  a half dozen Chinamen  are   kept  busy  putting  the   tops   on,  and" from  them   they  arc  passed  on  to a machine where the tops are soldered   cn  to   the  can    as    they   pass  ihiuugh,   and   then   rolled   ciown   ������n  i.iclinc,   to   have   the   little   hole   at  the top hermetically sealed. Then in  trays   each     holding    100     they   arc  plunged  into  tanks of  boiling water  for  one hour.   Thoy  are  then  taken  out and a'small hole punctured in tho  top to let off the gas and .air, which  is again  soldered up almost immediately   to   prevent   any   air   going   in.  whicn accounts"for the cavity on the  top   of   the   can.   The  trays   of   cans  are then placed in a retort, and steamed at a temperature of 2G0 and 280 degrees Far.,  from  which they  are removed   to  a  trough  of  cold   running  spring water,   which removes all   thc  grease, etc.. that may he remaining on  the oulslde of the can.    Then they are  lacquered,   labelled   and   packed,   and  the  whole   operation   is  opon.

They  have quite comfortable houses, built  in a regular street along tho beach,  with broad wooden side-walks raised  on posts or piles, and I should say  thero were roughly about 2,000 of  them. They wear civilized clothing,  much as you would see tho fisher folk  of a Nova Scotia fishing village, the  men in jerseys, overalls, and long  rubber boots mostly, and the women  dressed much as the half-breed women  about Calgary. Most of tho skilled  labor in the canneries Is done by  Chinese, who live ln a quarter by  themselves, as usual. Thore is a  Roman Catholic and a Church of  England mission, and :i large Salvation Army barracks.

Apparently the police were irritated,  for they set to work io gf't hold of  the reporter's name and then sub-  phoenaed him lo appear to give evidence against the saloon keepers  named in the Journal article. Askwith, under advice of the Journal, re  fused to givo evidence, the trchnic.il  excuse being tii.it the Ontario law of  evidence exempted a witness from  iucrminating himsolf. A fine may be  imposed upon nnyoni*. who enters a  saloon on Sunday. G. p. Henderson,  counsel for ihe.

"No," said I, "I cannot pay you so  much as ten liras for ho brief a journey and so few accommodations."  "By the beard of the prophet, it is  a Journey of 25 days, with the expense of ferriage across the Euphrates, and constant danger from robbers  along tho way. Your personal safety  will rest upon my head, and whatever I possess will ho yours, and my  men and myself will be your obedient  servants."  "If you furnish me one aasy-rlrding  and sure footed horse from among  your many possessions, and ono man  from your retinue of servants, to prepare my food and look after my tent,  I will give you ono and a half liras  if you take me through in safety,  1 respondend.  Thc Arab sheik replied, "As I have  an extra horse -which will not be  otherwise used, and a man for whom  I have no work, I will take you for  live liras, furnish you everything. I  shall lose money by it, but 1 do it  for Kindness' sake."  This is onlv the. uegiuning of the  conversatlsn which 1 held with the  Arab sheik, Mahmutl Ibn Musa, amid  a babel of noise and confusion in a  khan court in thc ancient city of Aln-  tab, In Northern Syria.  Malnuud Ibin Musn was thc owner ot  a caravan of 90 camels, and more than  a score of lesser animals about to  set out for Baghdad by the way o.  the Mesopotamia plain. I was going  his way for about 20 days' journey  and was trying to make a bargain  with him to tako me. After two hours  of talking, wo agreed that I should  have the privileges and favors sought  for two Turkish liras; in our money  $8 .80. To hind the bargain thc sheik  handed me a sliver Medjidie, about SO  cents, which.I was to return to him  when we were well on our way. mis  was my guarantee that the animal  would be reserved for mc.  "When shall I be ready to start?"  I   asked.  "Three hours before sunrise tomorrow wo must bo outside ot the city  and well on the way toward thc l'-u-  phratcs," said the conductor and proprietor  of the train   of   the  desert.  "Will you send men for my higgagc  tonight, so  there  may be no delay.  "They will come at once: have every  thing ready.' he replied. ,_,���������_,.���������,  T hastened to pacs my ������������-n-yl-  effects, aud sat up w������'01'u'J  men until 10 o'clock tthat night. Ihe>  did not como until two hours attei  sun rise next morning. 1 seemed to  be the only one that maintained the  impression that thero had been any  delay. I had yet much to learn about  thc Orient. .  Being accpiaintcd with Arabic, i  had no difficulty in coming into familiar terms with the director or out  party who had full and absolute control of evcrvthing. when we were once  freo of tho "city. In fact he was governor general,-chief of police, justice  of the peace and chief executioner.  My relations with him were greatly  strengthened by the gift of *ii combination pocket knife, a few of _ which  I had provided for such cases, and  which was to him an object of wonder, admiration and pride.  The caravan consisted of about 90  camels loaded with kerosene oil and  salt, tho former in five gallon tins,  ��������� set into wooden cases, and the latter  in large sacks. Each beast of burden  carried about 500 pounds of freight.  On- the road five or six camels were  attached together, tandem, and a man  on a small donkey guided the leade .  It was an interesting sight to see hall  dozen of these freighted ships of the  desert, following the lead of a little  ���������man astride of a little donkey.  There were 19 men In the caravan besides Mahraud Ibn Musa and  myself. He and I rode usually at the-  head of the procession, for 1 nlvajs  tried to get far enough ahead of tne  rest to avoid the wgary jangling ot  the camel bells hung upon the leader" in which the drivers took supreme  Ooi'i'-'ht An American can endure  the "monotonous clanging'for a few  hours, and perhaps tolerate Jt, but all  satisfaction .soon disappears and he  begins to wish he was stone deaf, with  th. growing belief that only this'can  <=avc   li-.i   from -raving   insanity.  lite "cliicf of the caravan was a  character indeed. He was about bt  * vears of age, I should judge, although  ho had uo idea of years.,He wore a  org white, full beard which flowed  down over . his green broadcloth  *- -.rinak-which, when he stood covered  "This baggy trousers-and-the-heavy sllk-  Kirdlo which bound his waist. i*ls  lead was protected by a beautiluUy  embroidered silk scarf, .^ich ���������  hound about by a braided and decor  ate band of camels hair. His.face  ���������was brown with exposure, and lus  eye extremely alert and piercing. He  bestrode..a large white donkey, a perfect type of the animals of its class,  ���������whicn he treated with great consideration and respect, they occupied the  same tent at night and were rarely  separated by day.  Thc men ot the caravan were baldened, strong, ignorant sons of the  desert, who had known no other occupation than this lifo of monotony  and exposure. Thc commands of the r  chief were their laws, and from his  hand iney stolidy received reward  and punishment. ������ ' ",. ,,���������������������������  I had with me some 820 gold liras  in a hand bag in which I carried stationery, books and clothing. At night  this bag was taken from the large,  leather sack in which it rode in my  hedding during the day and put limy tent. I made what use of it I  wished ���������while we were in camp, lock-  '������,  _���������*���������'  '���������&-  '/:.l'  'ill  I i.  it-.1  |.,v>.  sr  (X  ft  M  ing i. when I left it In the morning  for my man to care for, but not locking it at night. ,  The gold was in a canvas sack tuck-  ' ed away in ono corner of the bag.  Each morning and at night I was  careful to slip my hand into that  corner to make sure that the money  ���������was safe.  On the ninth morning of our journey I was astonished to find that thc  bag was not in Its accustomed place,  nor was it anwherc else in the satchel, or among my other effects.! I  'jtnew it. was all right the night boforo  -when I opened the bag to take out  EWmo writing material, after my man  had curled up for tho night wrapped  in his heavy felt blankot on thc  ground outside. I was not aware  that any ono had beon in tho tent.  Nothing else seemed to bo disturbed.  As soon as 1 missed the gold I called  my man Yusuf. .  ''Yusuf, after you left me last night  as I was taking off my Bhoes, did you  return to the tent?"  Yusuf  renlled   without hesitation  and vith the utmost franknesB, "With-  _, In 20 breaths I was  wrapped  in  my  blanket and asleep."  "DK1 you or any other person  ap-  nioafti   the.  tent,  during  the  night?"  "Tt*," tatd he, "1 did not como near  the tent again until you called me  just nov/, and T have no knowledge  that ony one elso did."  I was convinced that he know nothing of the loss so I said no mofe  to him. I sought at once Ibn Musa,  who was smoking in his tent while  his donkey ate his barley and vUbln.  I began. "Mahmud Ibn Musa, for  eight days X have been your guest  and --is with slncero sincerity that  I express gratitude for your princely  hospitality."  Ibn Musa clasped his hand to his  breast, bowed low and said, "To  tender hospitality is tho Arab's greatest delight, and to do this for one  from beyond tho seas is to him a  princely privilege."  "I am pained," I continued, "to  te compelled to say that a shadow  has come over the sun of my joy,  which as a guest I cannot conceal  from my hosl."  He expressed no surprise, but replied, "The Chelibi will please reveal his sorrow, and everything possible will bo done to dispel lt, even if  it costs   half tho  caravan."  I then told him of my loss. . He  asked me a few questions, until it  became apparent to him that he. had  all tho facts. Ho sat for a fow  moments in silence, stroking his  beard, and thon said:  "We will remain iu camp today.  Some of tho saddles need repairing,  and two or three of the donkeys have  lost ..ieir slioes. These need to be  loookcd after. Tliere is plenty of grass  here. Hefore sundown you will have  your gold.    Inshallah!    Co in  peace."  In an hour or two I saw thu leader of the camp start out alone from  thc camp. Two of the men leaped  forward to accompany him, but he  waved them back to tlieir work. He  was gone for more than two hours,  lit tlu~ meantime tlie blacksmith tools  were brought forth from the depths  of one of thc large pouches, and some  of .i.e men began to set shoos, while  others scraped the inside of the  saddles where they wore galling the  backs  of  the  animals.  The camels and donkeys, being sot  free, wandered about in search of  grass. The loads about which the  animals wero tethered at night, were  piled up in tiie middle of the camp.  It was toward noon when Ibn Musa  returned. He inspected tho workers,  and then, giving orders that he should  not be disturbed, retired to his tent  and closed down the flap. It was apparent that he was going to seize the  opportunity of the delay to obtain a  good  rest.  In the meantime I could not help  feeling anxious about my money. I  had lost enough to pay all my expenses for the next four months, with  no means of replacing it. and the only  man who could get it for mc was gone  to sleep as if it were of no consequence.  For three hours the tent of the  sheik was silent anrl still. Then he  came out, rubbing liis oyes, and ordered his dinner. An hour and a  half more, was consumed with this.  All the .time I was growing more" and  more excited, T began to - mistrust  that tlie chief himself knew more  about the money than I did, and that  he was planning to cheat ,me out of  it.   -' . - '  When the day's "work was done, and  the camels and donkeys had been  gathered in and tethered, and supper  was eaten, tho old sheik, dressed in  his most brilliant raiment, with a  deep green turban upon his hoad,  -came slowly from his tent and mounted tho mass of freight that was piled  in the centre ot tho camp. After  seating himself upon the top and adjusting his garments,' he motioned me  to a seat near him. -I got up with  more alacrity than dignity, for it was  apparent that something was to' be  done; but what it might be I could  not imagine. * -  "   Quickly the men came together in a  mass, and stood in front of-'us.  "How many are hero?" he asked.  In a moment the reply came: "nine  teen."  - "When-I call his name let each man  step to my left and take his' place in  a line in front," commanded the  sheik.  Slowly and with no hesitation the  19 names were called, and with precision each man stepped to his place.  When It was apparent that no one was  absent, orders were given that they  sit in a semicircle on the ground  around the throne.  When the men were seated, tho  sheik, in sllenee, and with the utmost  deliberation, looked up and down that  row of stolid faces, every eye of  which was fixed upon him. This went  on for at least five minutes, until -I  felt as if I must speak, or yell, or do  something to break that awful, pro-|  traded silence; but I managed to re- |  strain myself. -  ���������=���������It��������� was-the-rinost-lmprossive-i-^and  tho longest livo minutes I have ever  known. I could sec that the men  were affected.'and yet not1, a muscle  moved or an eye wandered. At the  end of the silent survey, in a voice  low, quiet, but deep with intensity  and feeling, thc sheik began to speak  in slow, measured terms, while his  eyes moved along tho line of faces  before him. .   ,  "Today my name has been disgraced  before this howadji���������-teacher���������-and  before Allah. Theft is an awful  crime, hated by God and man; but  when one steals-from his guest, he is  seven times accursed. Such a one  must be cut into strips and thrown to  the dogs, to remain forever an outcast  from paradise. I have robbed my  guest. This howadji accepted my  hospitality and trusted himself to me.  He has been robbed in my home  within the last 24 hours. The robber  Is before mc. As shamefaced as  Satan, he sits here and thinks to conceal his crime by his effrontery.  At this point tho sheik broke forth  Into one of the strongest arraignments  of the crime that I have ever heard.  Ho declared that no punishment was  severe enough for the criminal; that  God Himself veiled His face as He  looked down upon a company that hatl  within it such'an abandoned sinner.  He pictured Allah calling upon him  to destroy the culprit and restore the  gold His voice arose as he proceeded, and he spoke with an intonation which thrilled me through and  through. He suddenly paused in his  Imprecations, and in his old, calm  voice continued: -;  "My whito donkey in thc tent  yonder is a direct descendant from Al  Borak, the milk whilo animal upon  which Mohammed rode from Jerusalem to tho seventh heaven. He has  a keen prophotic senso, and never  fails to reveal that which Is divinely  true. The spirit of the great Mohammed is with him. and uses him to  make known the mind of Allah. He  will now tell me who committed this  terrible crime, and when ho speaks,  wo will slay without mercy the man  who is destitute of every sense of in- i  tcgritv or honor.  "Tlie donkey is thero in my tent.  He cannot use our language, as his  throat Is tho throat ot a donkey, but  his spirit, is thc spirit of God. He  will uso his own language in pointine  out. the culprit. I now command each  tent. When you enter, close the flap  so that no one can see you but the  donkey and Allah. Then pull the  tail of the donkey. When an innocent hand touches his tail he will be  silent, but when the hand of the  thief grasps it he will at onco bray.  That will be his message to us, and  v/e, acting upon it, will seizo the  criminal and show him no mercy."  He then motioned to tbe man at tho  end o������ the line nearest the tent to go  first. He solemnly and quietly rose,  entered the tent, closed the flap, remained inside for a few seconds, and  returned to his seat.  The sheik motioned to the second  man.' He repeated, with no variation,  the movements of his predecessor.  It was difficult to decide who was  the more affected, thc men or myself.  I was eagerly listening for the expected bray from the tent, and even  dreading the spectacle of vengeance  which I was certain then to witness.  Twelve men entered and returned,  and still no sound issued from the  tent. Thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen; only three more, and one of  theni   was   my   special   servant.  I could not keep quiet. My excitement was so marked that the sheik  asked me to keep perfectly still.  Seventeen, eighteen, and now the  last man was on his way. The  climax must now come, or ihe game  was up, and my money was gone beyond recovery.  The nineteenth man went in and  came out without a sound. We hnd  staked our cause upon a donkey, and  he hnd failed us. 1 drew a deep  breath of relief and'started lo speak,  but before a word was uttered Mali-;  mud Ilin Musa said to me, quietly:!  "Bo silent;   it is all  right."  Tho men were now sitting before us  in the original order, and all were Intently looking at ihe sheik to see  what next he would do. In a tone of  command he said: "Stand!" When  all were up. he added: "Hold your  hands out before you together, with  tho palms up." Each man held out  his hands, with the little fingers together and the palms upward.  Ibn Musa solemnly descended from  his pedestal, and walking to the man  in tho row who first entered the tent,  he stooped over and laid his face into  the outstretched palms. Ho held it  tliere for perhaps five seconds, then  raised it up, stepped one step to the  right, and repeated thc process with  the next man. Thus he went down  the line. I was puzzled beyond  measure.  As he came to the twelfth man, he  bent his face into his palms as he had  done to the eleven preceding, but in a  flash he leaped back, drew his scimitar, which he always carried, and said:  "You dirty dog of a thief, get that  gold nt once, or 1 will disembowel you  on the spot!"  Thc man fell up on his face and  fried to kiss the feet of tho shclk,  begging for mercy, and promising to  get the money immediately if his life  were spared,    e  With terrible force the sheik said:  "Go!"  He quickly stepped outside the  circle ot camels, removed a flat stone,  pushed away some loose earth, and  came back with my canvass bag.  "Give, it to the howadji," commanded he; and the bag was put into  my hands.  . "Count thc gold,*' said tlie sheik to  mo.  I did so, and found it Intact. Whon  I had thus declared, two men were  ordered to flog the thief. After a few  not "very heavy blows were struck I  beggedfor mercy for him, and he was  released. The sheik wenfto his tent  and the, meeting broke up.  I was glad to got my money, but Ij  found myself almost as anxious to  know how llie thief was discovered as  I had been to discover him. I could  devise no theory that seemed to fit the  case, and finally gave it up and went  to sleep, having my gold under my  pillow, with a- string tied around the  <bag and my neck. I proposed to  know when it went.another time. "  ' As we rode along next day I referred to the recovery of the gold, and  asked ���������j sheik how he'discovered the  thief. He looked at me in a most  comical manner, and said: "You  must not tell my men, but the donkey's tail was soaked in a solution of  mint and afterwards dried. All  pulled the tail but the thief. His  hand alone had no smell of mint upon  it." , '"  "Mashallah! God is great," I replied.  HOWARD ASHTON.  CHURCH   DIRECTORY  \T__THODI3T     .

And, whereas, if the wage system

shall continue along with the. advance

the condition of wage workers must

Therefore, though we favor such
political action as shall as scion as
possible       abolish       said systems
and substitute therefore a system
based on the rights and duties of men.

Co-operative Commonwealth and the
establishment of .justice and equality
among men wi: favor, as a temporary
relief Llie reduction of hours of labor
as our best.defensive weapon.
And. whereas, Lhe B. C. parliament,
at its list session enacted a law creating an eighc. hour working-day for
underground miners, which law, itis
asserted, by tbe Silver-Lead Mine
Owners' Association of ��� B. 0., and
others, was unsought and undesired
by us:
"Therefore, be it resolved by the
Miners' Union, Nn. 71. "W.F.M., that
the contrary is true: that we favor the
law and ils enforcement and that we
shall seek such fuither reduction of
hours as shall make a demand i'or the
daily labor of every .nan willing to
work, and shall, by creating such
increased demand for labor, have a
tendency to increase wages.

A Fresh Consignment of
Butter and Eggs Just Arrived.
The- examination   yesterday at the
public school was quite a revelation to
those   present   of   the  etllciency  and
discipline   prevailing in  that  institution.    It was also a. revelation  of the
miserable inadequacy of theaccoiniiio-
dation provided by a paternal  government for the work of the school.    Of
course this will to  a.  certain extent
be improved  by the erection  of Lhe
proposed   new    building   during    the
holidays,  but the new building only
provides additional space.    The  heating arrangements will still be modeled
on the stove, pipes of the Lime Kiln
Club and the sanitary appliances  will
still be those of a  cross-roads country
schoolhouse.       The     whole    design,
which is apparently - a stock  government plan for a two roomed  school, is
absurdly     inadequate    even    to    the
immediate requirements of tlie town.
We do, as Mr. Thompson pointed   out
in his speech at. Lhe examination,   now
require a High   School   in  Kootenay
and we ought to have,  ifc here.    The
best, solution of the difficulty seems to
tlie  Hhuald   to   be   the.   creation  of
Revelstoke   into     a    school   district,
whereby we should be able to manage,
our own school   affairs   without   everlastingly going  cap  iu  hand  to  Victoria, and we should  then   soon   have
a school to   be   proud   of   and   whicli
would nt tract many  people  to reside
here to partake of  its advantages  for
their children.
