Speaking to the  p:itrims uf these down east departmental stores, who are little better  than foreigners so far as building up  their own town and home is concerned  the News says:  " Yo a are out west because you can  get better wages than in  the  east.

It is nut fair for you  to secure the high wages of the west and  not expect the merchant's clerk or his  dravman to get equally as good wages."  Thn home merchant pays  municipal  taxes,   school   taxes,     subscribes    to  nearly every scheme for raising money  trotted around, often hy the very same  ladies who send east  i'or  their frocks  iind lion nets, while their husbands are  talking unionism, socialism and all the  other  isms and at the same  lime, ate  letting their''wives spend their good  money     with    ea.~tern    departmental  stores   which   are   claimed   to    drive  more girls to prostitution in one- year  thnn are picked up hy church workers'  in two and to  cause as much,   moral  degradation in   their grinding sweatshops  as  all   tliti   saloon")   in  thu   big  "cities   where   I hey   do   business.     If  unionism is ever to be a real power  in  Ihe community it must be square  and  tlioi'oiigligiiing, .not selfish  and  onesided.     Ihe   sweatshops   of  the east  should receive' no aid; or countenance  from it.     They.are as much its enemy  as they are an obstacle in the road of  every business  man   in  our new  and  struggling  communities nf   the  west.  The 'imoitnt in cash sent out in  a few  months of   one   town,   our   own   for  instance, to the. eastern  departmental  stores is amazing.    If the  money  was  faithfully spent here.times would soon  .-illur for  the  better  and   prices,  too,  would   be   lower.     And   every   loyal  union man should commence without  delay a  crusade   against   this annual  tribute to the sweatshops of Montreal  and Toronto and commence where it  will-do   most   practical  good���������in  his  own family.  more than eight hours in every 24  hours.". That is lo say whether a  miner wishes or not, the law absolutely prohibits him from working  underground more than one shift in  the 24 hours. It. seems nt nimble to the  Herald tint there an: plenty of men  who after a rest of eight hours would  just as soon add to the day's earnings  by putting iu another shift or half  shift as to he killing time in the  monotonous and isolated surrounding!"  characteristic of our minus in Kontc-  rniy. And if he wants to do so tliere  should be no. law to prevent it. although at the same time tliere should  be no loophole left through which the  mine owners could compel it. A man  that has worked eight hours under  ground has done a day's-work and the  balance oi the 2t hours should be at  his own disposal. At the same time  if he wants to dispose of it by doubling  his day's earnings, any law which  prevents hhn from doing so is simply  framed in a spirit of paternal tyranny.

Looking   regretfully   hack    on   the  happy days, now gone by, when  Revelstoke was-fnll-oMoyal -supporters -of-  the   Groat   Kelly,   and   scanning the  broken ranks of his present adherents,  the question naturally   presents  itself  to a thoughtful mind���������who is going to  do Kelly's work in the  next election ?  Who is going to rally  the  faithful, to  lead the wild hurrah forthe working  man's friend and give the signal for  the   devastating   howl   of  the  hoiny  handed supporters of Kelly, the son of  toil?    Who will raise the  cheer when  the miners' champion shows his noble  countenance in the  public  hall ?   The  gold   commissioner,    the   mining    recorder,   the   premier's secietary,  can  hardly do it.    Even   a patriot  turned  government   oilicial   must   draw  the  line somewhere.     And the rest of the  noble   hand,   what   of   theni?   Alas!  some   have   'well     thumbed     letters  cherished in their breast pockets; some  have only sad memories of pledges and  promises in their h'e.irts. but all   have  bitterness ,md wrath in their  bosoms.  Where   shall   onr - Kelly    find    such  another     band     of     pure,   unselfish,  patriotic, noble hearted men ?  It is very gratifying to see that in  spite of all  the  opposition   they  have  experienced,   unexpected  and  unwarranted  as  much of it was, the Boston  & B. C. Copper Mining  and Smelting  Co. have  stuck   to  their intention  of  holding on   to   and developing  their  properties in the Standard basin, have  even increased their  holdings   in   the  camp   and   are    also    contemplating  launching out  into  other side  issues  si-.i-h as steamboat .transportation on  the   upper  river   and    the   smelting  business righthere in Revelstoke. The  report of their expert. Mr. Vou Rosenberg,"    must   necessarily   have    been  exceedingly favorable as to  the  possibilities of mineral wealth iudicatedhy  the.surface,   showings   noted   by him  during his visit to the Stimdatd basin,'  And that gentleman's  trip  to North  Kootenay may reasonably be expected  to hear other good fruit as soon .as he  returns to New York  from  California  and  New   Mexico,   where   he    is   at  present engaged  in  putting  through  some large mining deals.     Now  that  the stream of eastern money has been  directed   our   way,? North  Kootenay  will soon  awaken  from  the dormant  condition, to which lack of capital has  so   long condemned^ her and  the remarkable   development   wrought, out  in the  Slocan  and  Rossland districts  during the past five oc six years will  doubtless be duplicated in  the  camps  to wliich Revelstoke is the only possible   gateway     and     business   centre.  Boston   capital   made   one    Butte  in  Montana.     Another decade  may see  another rising in the midst of the rich  silver-lead and gold-copper ledges of  great mineral district enclosed  iu the  Big Bend of the Columbia.  A Company Which Promises to Do a  Great Deal for the Development of  Revelstoke and the Rich Mineral  District to the North of the Main  Line.��������� The Steamboat Question May -  be Regarded as Settled.  In an interview with G. W. Beach,  general manager of the Boston & B.  O. Copper Mining nnd Smelting Co.,.  the Herald gathered the following  information. The company is now;  fully organized and intends to get to  work developing its properties and  opening up North Koolenay right  away. Already two other properties  in the Standard basin have beei)  bonded to the company on which they  intend to start a force of men at work-  and they were so favorably impressed  with Mr. Von Rosenberg's report on.  the district that they contemplate  acquiring other claims in the basinv  It may be. mentioned en passant that  Mr. Von Rosenberg, whose weight as  a inining expert is second to none  among the moneyed men of New York  and Boston, was greatly struck with  the indications of mineral wealth  noticed by him on -his trip to the  Standard basin and his visit itself is  likely to have good effect in directing  eastern capital to the exploitation ot  North Kootenay.  With regard to the proposed.smelter  Mr. Beach said that plans .nnd specifications for a custom .smelter  capable,  to treating all the different pres.of the,,  district  and  constructed under    the.  late patents of H. B. Meach,   are now,  lying ready in the company's office in  Boston.     Tho   company . would com-.,  mence with a smelter of from 50 to 100,'.  tons   capacity, at  ..once,    everything .  li'feing favorable.     As the demand iincreased, the capacity of the smelter,,  would be increased!  . Revelstoke  was'. -  regarded as a favorable smelting l������>ca--  tion   owing    to    the ' transportation-,,  facilities offered  both>,by  water and ..  rail,   and   in   the'   smelting   business',  transportation is more than  half the.  battle.    .If the site selected at the Big'/'  Eddy could t he   obtained, it afforded.,  every?convenience for building a^spnr^ .  track trom the main line and also for a  steamboat, wharf on the river. ,  .    ?    , '  As to the^steamer'Mr., Beach  said,  that he was leaving for Boston -this... -  week and theie was no doubt in  his  mind   tliat   the   agreement," procured.-  from the business men of the town  by,  the board of trade would be regarded,  as satisfactory  by the company And,  that the construction of a steamer.to  run on   the  upper river next .season -  would commence without delay. -   .     >(  Mr. Beach  himself'is. well pleased  with the hearty-manner in , which  his .  proposals have heen received.by  the,-  board of   trade, and   hnsmess  men nf  Revelstoke an.^ feels assured, that "his.,  efforts    combined   with    theirs    will -  result in, a considerable, accession  of.  business activity to the town.'  ^The-Hidden^Treasure-Group.:  E. Ij. Kiniiian, who has the bond on  the above property is hard at work  driving a tunnel to tap the lend.  Already he is in 40 feet and with  splendid showing from stringers running tin ough tlvi ground. Mr. Kin-  ni.-i n expects lo tup the lead in about  another 30 feet, when a big showing  of ore is expected, judging fiom lhe  surface showings, which are without  doubt the best in that locnlity. The  leads crossing the property were trace-  able from the Silver Cup hill across  the Nettie L hill and over into the  Fish River district. In our lust issue  reference w-is iniulo to this croup and  an error occurred in whicli the assay  read 0 ozs. to the ton in silver, instead  of an average of 00 ozs.  While the Conservative convention  which meets tomorrow- at New  West  minster has ieaily nothing to do   wilh  provincial  politics,   it.   is   very likely i  that cerl.-iin live questions connected  with   purely   provinti.il    alVairs   v ill  crop up for discussion.     On-' of them  is the  eight,   hour   law.     11,   may  be  token for gi .uited thai any attempt to  get     the   ('(invention   to  oppos->  this  measure will promptly be voted down.

The clause as at present wouled  is very sweeping and peremptory and  really interferes quite  as  much with  the liberty of the miners as it does  with the mine owners.    " No person,"  it says,   - shall   be   employed  under  The America Cup.  Yesterday's Shamrock - Columb'a  race was declared no race as the boats  failed to cover the course in the pie-  sc-rihed time, owing to becoming becalmed. The Shamrock was leading  when the heat was decl.-n ed off. The  nice is decided iu three out of five  heats. The next heat will be sailed  tomorrow.  A Great Mineral Exhibit.

OJM   PAUL'S   WAY.  The old  gentleman who does  most  of the thinking for the South African  republic has kept the outside    world  guessing for some time.     The headlines of the daily, news items from his  realm a little while-ago were : too apt  to  declare   that  "Oom  Paul   Yields;"  but a perusal of the item usually disclosed that he had agreed to yield' one  point if the British     foreign     office  ���������would yield ten.     Whereby it became  .apparent that Oom    Paul's     peculiar  whiskers fringe the face; of one of vthe  most ungraceful,yielders in the'business. ? v At? this writing the*  dominant  headline has become.? portentous";1    it  asserts that,    the "Boer f Crisis . /.is  .���������Acute,"?and there are hints that/war  may come in 4S hours.'

The first, wheat-of-the season Wtis  brought into Edmonton on Tuesday  by Simon Wojdowitz, a Galician. of  Edna, says the Post. Samples of  the wheat were* on view at ��������� Herr  Wagner's, government interpreter,  and though somewhat shrtinken.sbo'.v-  lng that It had been cut green, it  was considered good wheat for milling purposes. Wojdowitz brought iu  15 bushels  for Bale.  Trout Lake Topic: . Railway construction in the Lardeau at present  appears to be languishing. The reason  ������iven by the contractors is the scarcity of men, and they claim that  although they are paying $2.50 a day  with board at J5.50 a week, it is very  difflcut to fill up their forces. , The  consequence Is that thc work is not  progressics nearly as rapidly as it  should. Notwithstanding this, however, the-surveyors of both corporations are laboring assiduously to  finish the 'work of locating " their  lines. Both parties ar.e' working  within" a jhort distance of\Trou������ lake.  It was at tho Waldorf Astoria during horso show time, and tho dinner  hour, the busiest time of the whole  day at that wonderful- hostelry.  Uniformed atlenchuits Hew here and  there in breathless haste, waiters tuul  "omnibttsscs" hovered _ distractedly  about tho flower bedecked tables in  the grand dining saloon and tho palm  gardens, and through the rich corridors flowed a ceaseless stream of elo-  gant women in trailing silken gowns,  and prosperous looking men in Tuxedos or swallow tail coats cut to reveal  dazzling segments of shirt front.  The riot ot luxury, feasting and enjoyment was at its height when two  men met in the oflice���������two men of 40  or thereabouts, with that indefinable  air of self conscious power that marks  the successful business man.  "By the gods if it isn't. Frod Fink.!'-'  exclaimed the taller of lhe two, stopping suddenly with outstretched hand.  "Teller!" cried the other joyfully,  seizing the proffered hand. "I am  glad to see you, old man."  In another -moment the two seated  in a couple of the big. throne-like  leather chairs which the Astor millions have provided for the purpose  of at once comforting and .impressing  tho hotel patrons, and wore, giving an  account of themselves'in .-true American fashion.  They had not seen each other sinco  15 years before they had "'separated  after foiir years of intimate companionship al a fresh water college,  to go nnd seek their fortunes after tlio  impetuous  fashion   ol' westorn  youth.'  "You have prospered, T hoar," said  Finlc, "and have become an out and  out New Yorker in fact and sentiment."  "Oh, I've had my ups and downs,"  replied Teller witli a little laugh, "hul  I'm on top now. As for being a confirmed New Yorker, well. Mrs!

Tho  orchestra, from its perch on t.ho landing of the marble stairway, was playing an air from "La. Boheme." repeating the refrain over and ovor again  with passionate insistence.

"The next day Hank set out some  nitro-glycerine with pepper capsules in  it at a place where rattlers wore  frequent. Nitro-glycerine has a sweet  taste, and a sort of sickish sweet  smell, and it wasn't but a few minutes before Hank, who was hiding behind somo bushes, saw a big rattler  mosy up to where lhe glycerine was,  poke his nose into it, aud gulp down  the whole dose. Then- Mr. Rattler  went to a sunny spot, stretched himself out, and began to dose after the  manner of.-a snako who has dono his  duty, eating all he can hold and is  now ready for a good solid snooze.  In about five minutes the snake lifted  up his head, like a person who hasn't  been sleeping just comfortable. Then  he glanced around,* and Hank says  you could see a look pf pained surprise 011 that snake's countenance.- In  another minute the , snake began to  squirm, as if he had oaten something  that didn't quite agree with him.  Thon as the red pepper got in its fine  work, the rattler began to thrash the  ground like a man with tho colic.  Then he jumped into the air and  protty soon in his jumpings he hit his  stomach against; a stone. That gave  the hitro-gb'cerine in Iiim a~jar, there  was an explosion, and 0:1a more rattler had joined tho great majority as  tho parson says. . .  , "Hunk Dunham - was the nroudest  and icy fuller, t : man in Pike" count-.'  .when; he-saw the success of hise\-  prriiiiont., ' ...

FILIPINO   SWIMMERS  Brandon, Sep. 29.���������According to a  rumor current'here there has been a  somewhat startling revelation in connection with the past history of Hilda  Blake, who lies in Brandon jail, the  confessed murderess of Mrs. John  'Lane. It is stated that she wrote, a  letter to Mrs. Stewart, of Virden, the  lady with whom she lived previously  in which she''confesses that sho had  murdered young Stewart, who it was  thought had committed suicide. The  young fellow was found dead in thc  house and the supposition was that he  had shot himself, suspicion having  never rested on the young girl Hilda.  Presumably her success in escaping  ���������the results of this crime emboldened  her to commit a second. Had sho  identified the tramp who was first arrested for the murder of Mrs. Lane she  might still be free."* It is stated that  the girl wrote the letter to Mrs.  Stewart about the time she went to  Winnipeg to purchase the revolver  with which she committed her latest  crime, stating that she was en route  to the Old Country, having just finished a course in Brandon hospital  and had become a full fledged nurse.  The courage shown bv the Filipinos  iu battle with American a-5 well as  with Spanish troops long ago proved their natural bravery.

The point that  some of the tenderers had not paid  their contractors' license fee was also  raised by Aid. McKechnie, but the  council seemed to be of the opinion  that this fact wns no bar to the consideration of their tenders, unless it  could bn proved that he had taken  other contracts already this year.  The tender of W. Lot'tus, being the  lowest, was accepted.  KEPOKTS OF COMMITTEES.  The public works committee recommended thnt $500 be appropriated for  gravelling McKenzie avenue to First  street, First street to Campbell avenue  and Station road from McKenzie avenue to C. B.

Wells thought it was too early  to begin gravelling the streets and  also that tbe Finance committee  should be allowed tu consider the  report nnd'see what amount they bud  on hand.  Aid. Kilpatrick asked how much l.he  (lnani'C! cominiilee had on hand.  Aid. Wells thought it wns somewhere in Llie neighborhood of $7,000.  Aid.
