SKETCH OF THE CAREER OF MANAGER POOL OF THE  FAMOUS NETTIE L.  The siibjc.'t of this sketch, who is  probably ont; of the bi-'bt known men  in all North Kootenay, arrived in  Revelstoke in March 1802. In company  Willi his partner. Eil. Crockett, who is  now ranching near Craigellucliie. and  Jack Stanhert, anotht'i* well known  Lavilean pioneer, hu builtn boat here  nml went down the river thn Arrowhead. Dragging their boat across the  ii*e on the frozen Arm of the lake they  made Thomson's Landing aiul then  fniliid a way inland by squirrel paths  until they reached Trout Lake.1 On  lhat trip the partners staked the  Net.tie L, so named after a fair lady  fi-ietui of Mr. Crockett's in "old  Missourah " and theiidjacent claim the  elspwhere. In the words of a perfectly  impartial expert, who visited the mine  last. fall, it is "a dyke of mineral." Its  present statu of "development is Mr.  Pool's achievement. The methods  employed have been all his own. Even  if thev were shown how it was done,  it may be confidently asserted that  there .-ire very few men who could do  it. Viewed from one phase .Mr.  Pool's idea's of how to make a mine  are the. direct antithesis of Ihe English  "mining ��������� a- gold- mine- out- in-some-  blawsleil -place- in- British-Columbia,-  a vt fly -jolly, -don't-you- know,- old-chappie" "method.

A Machine Shop lor  Nelson.  In an account of un interview with  Master Mechanic F. E..Hobbs, published in a recent issue the Nelson Miner  says:  An interesting change has been  made, in connection with the service  on the Rossland hill by lhe introduction of the Shay engine. No. Ill, to  take the place of the ordinary locomotives formerly used on that grade.  The Shay, with its remarkable departures from the ordinary style of con  struction. has/lone splendid service.  With it a load of 2S3 tons is hauled  on the hill in the same running time  occupied hy the bent engine on the  division of ordinary build in hauling  132 tons,- in addition to, which the  Shay economi7.es in coal, water and  labor. The success of No. Ill on the  Rossland hill has been so marked that  the management proposes to displace'  Ihe Moguls now in use on the Kicking  Morse Pass grades wilh locomotives  of the Shay pattern. This will be  interesting reading lo railroad men  as it is probably the first timo the  statement has appeared in the press.  According to Mr. Hobbs the completion of the bridge across the Columbia will he of prime importance  to Nelson. In the first place it will  bring about the construction here of  a thoroughly equipped machine shop  capable of handling all the repairs for  t.he 21 or more locomotives which will  then be running on the two divisions.  To handle this work a considerable  stall of ' skilled mechanics will be  required, aud practically- all tile work  now going to. Revelstoke will be done  in this city. The plans for the building  ate already decided upon. It will be  located immediately, ��������� behind and  adjoining the round house to which ,it  will he connected by two tracks.  Furthermore Nelson will he headquarters for all the locomotive crews  on the two divisions, ^except, the  Rossland hill crew,     Tiii.i   will   locate  more than twice the number nf hitrhlv  ,c c    *  paid railroad men in Nelson than are  now residing here, a fact which will  materially benefit the city. ^  Maybe, tlie two banner properties of  the now/famous Nettie L uiounlain.  near Ferguson. That season they  ranged all over the Lardeau as far as  the Duncan slope and round by lhe  great Glengarry lead. Pool creek. Sable  cieek, where Mr. Pool staked the  Trilby, and Isaac creek. There weie  no roads or trails and prospecting in  the Lnrdeau was no easy job. But  what Mr. Pool then saw was sufficient  to convince him that that district con  There are no yellow legged arid gentlemanly - cousins-and nephews of the  hoard drawing big wasjes for doing  nothing. Practically there ������n* no salaries paid on the Nettie L. There aie  wages paid lo miners.

At the beginning of the. century ten  thousand tons of spelter would have  overstocked the markets of the woild  so effectually that all the zinc mines  would have suspended in sheer despair  of the ability of the world to assimilate  such an enormous tonnage, yet in 1S0S  the United States produced 11S.HO0 tons  of spelter and Europe mined nud  refined 35S.500 tons, a total of 47.1,800  tons for the world, a greater product  than lhat of all the copper mines,  though of only about one-third the  value of the copper product. The uses  of zinc, as of other metals, have rapidly  multiplied, liraddition to sheet zinc  I'or commer'.'ial use, it is an important,  factor iu the making of white paint; it  must he had for galvanizing iron, and  il is absolutely essential in the  cyanide progress of gold extraction,  without which not a mine on the  South African Rand could earn a dollar, and lacking which more than  two thirds of the world's present  supply of gold would remain un mined,  because impossible of production at a  profit. Lust, but not least, zinc, is the  only known negative metal, and without it the manifold electrical industries  of the world, employing hundreds of  thousands of men and using billions of  dollars of capital, lighting our streets,  hauling our cars, carrying our  messages and performing countless  utilities for tliis utilitarian age���������  without zinc all this' would, stop.���������  Western Alining World.  The Canadians Part.  ;During the past weeks the part  which the Canadian soldiers took iii  the capture of General Cronje at the  battle of Paardeberg has been told and  retold by the gtuatenl, authority on the  subject ���������General Roberts��������� ami several of his leading officers.'. ��������� The picture  which is given 'free by The Weekly;  Globe to its yearly subscribers is pronounced hy those who were there a  very accurate desci iptiou of the scone.  A sample of it can be seen-at this  ollice. It should be in every, homo in*  Canada.  B.R. Campbell left this morning for  Rossi.ind to lake in the carnival.  Forecast ofthe  Session.  The present session promises to he a  short one, and will probably not exceed  three months, lt will bo a pniely  business one. The government will  only bring down such measures as are  absolutely necessary to meet public  exigencies. The "session, however,  will be an important one. as regards  railway legislation, some of whicli is  of au international character, and  stormy contentions are expected. It  is generally understood (hat. Hon. Mr.  IJIiiii*. Minister of Railroads, will  endeavor t.o secure the passage of a  bill providing for the appointment of a  railway commission, a permanent and  independent hody, which will have  extensive powers in all matters  effecting railways in Canada, and will  operate along lines similar to those  of the United States Interstate  Commission.  Another important measure which  the government intends to introduce  is one providing for the perpetuation  of the 24th of May, the late Queen's  birthday, as a national holiday iu  Canada. It will bu called Victoria  Day in commemoration of the Queen's  glorious roign.  lt is not- intended to make any  material change in the Customs taiitf  this session. - Some hint that there  will be a flirt hor increase in the British  Preferential TarilT, but this is entirely  a mutter of conjecture.

C, Gazette to treble and quad-  ruble their usual number, Mr. Pool in  company with ot her associates. J. D.  Graham, T. Kilpatrick; J. J. Young  and A. E. Kincaid formed the Great  Western Ltd.. a, company having for  its object the .development of an immense liod',u.--Of_j.cnncenti*nting. ore.  known as the Great Western group,"  on the north shoie of the Arm of the  lake. In '98 Mr. Pool turned in his  half share in the Nettie L. into the  company, which has since acquired  the undivided ownership of the whole  mine, us well as the Aj.-tx mining claim  adjoining on the south, whicli was  puichased fiom the, owners Messis.  Thos. Taylor and J. Statihert, in 19J0.  As soon as the company gained  possession of the Nettie L. Mr Pool, as  manager; turned- all the resources of  ihe company into its development,  with a faith in the future of the prop  erty, which has been fully justified by  results. In two and a half vears witli  an expenditure of some ,"530,00(1 in cash  and an incalculable, quantity of vim  and energy lie has transfoitned a lirst  class prospect into a regular shipping  mine, which as soon as'traiisportatioii  facilities are afforded, will take high  rank among the "crackerjacks" of the  province. The Nettie L is not mining  any ordinary lead, such as might be  considered    a   profitable   proposition  own t.he Maybe, au adjoining claim to  the Nettie L and ns far as present  indications go. quite as equally a  promising property. London capital  is laigcly inteiested in this company,  but it will be run on the original Nettie  L plan.  Mr. Pool has unbounded faith in the  future of Revelstoke and NorthKoote  nay. His enthusiasm is by no means  confined to the Lardeau, In fact, his  opinion of the Big Bend mineral district is lhat it, is ahead of .anything  south of us. This opinion is all the  more valuable since it is quite inip-ir-  Iial as Mr. Pool's interests in the Big  Bend are" a mere trifle compared to  those he possesses in the Lardeau. But  a visit to the Liifornie creek camp  Jjmlyj-taggered him, so wonderful are  the indications of~tHifferal~"wealtlY��������� itr  that one small section or Lhe Big Bend  mini:ial belt. - Si  Personally Mr. Pool is a man of  engaging address, of large experience,  in mining matters anil of wonderful  push and energy in I lie fascinating  put suit of mine making. At anv lime  a talk with ���������'Billy" is better than a  drink of whiskey and it, would he very  hard to calculate how much the coming banner camp of Kootenay. the  Lardeau, owes to his never failing  optimism and faith in the country,  which he has always been willing and  undoubtedly competent to express  during all the loin* years of wailing  which in miniiiir, as ineverylhing else.  is proverbially liable to make the heart  sick. He is a good talker, but his most  astonishing predictions ate always  well worth attention, as they are  bised on a sound, practical knowledge  gained in the hard school of experience,  which is the only school of mining, in  wliich the bottom facts of the business  can be discovered.

Mr,   ,1.  A.  Ruddick,   assistant   Dominion dairy Commissioner,   who  has*  recently lived several   years  in   New  Zealand   us   a   dairy   expert    in   the  service ol the island government,  has-  been giving   his   views   of  the   state  owned    railway*;  to a  Winnipeg   re-*  porter.    As his opinion of these roads  is not the commonly   accepted  view,  which is that they   are  a   success in  everv respect, il is worth repi inting in-  the Heii.m.u in order that the   other  side   of the question  may   be   heard.  Mr.   Roddick   has   been    reported   assaying that the trains ran 15 miles au  ho'ur.    He wished to qualify this  by'  saying that while that, was llie average-  general speed then* was one line which'  ran at the rate of 'JS miles an hour.     It  is  haul  for  Canadians to  realize  the'  kind of railways they have   iu   New  Zealand und the way they are run.    It-  is a small country and there is no train'  that runs  over night,  so  that such a-  thing  ns   a sleeper is unknown   and  there is no longer journey than  one  day.    In mosL cases the hauls are very"  ������������������hnrt.    The longest continuous line i*--  -110 miles.     After travelling on this alt  day   the  passenger has to leave the-  i rain in the evening and go to a- hotel  where he staysail night and next day"  resumes the journey.  ,  Speaking of the rates. Mr. Ruddick  confirmed     the   statement   that    the*  passenger rate   lor first class is   five  ceiiis per. mile, and on one piece of road  Ihey actually charge  fen   cents.    This,  was the piece constructed at a cost of  about live million   dollars through a-  series of hills in a. direction indicated  hy political influence for the benefit of  a certain piece ot land,  but as several,  land slides had occurred   in   the   hills-  and some trains wrecked and lives lost.,  the  government decided thev  would  ���������  have to change the route and- abandon.    .  that portion of the road..  There was a ureal deal of grumbling:  abontllie freight rales on thc railways.,  and iu fact   Mr.   Ruddick 'saw   teams:  hauling goods on roads   parallel  with'  the railway in competition with it, and  they    were  even     running    traction    "  engines.along the country roads  com-*  peting with the railways owing to  the- >  rates^of freight. Whatthe government-  would do about this he did not know,,  but   .they    strictly     prohibited, anv  competition.    There  was one  private-,  railway line. S4 miles  in length. ruur-  ning out of Wellington, and every hodv  there said-it was tlie best road in, the-  colony.  '. Mr.    Ruddick    mentioned'    several'  instances where the railway policy was-  controlled by-wire pulling and political I,.,,  influence. ' There  was one case  of '������>���������'���������  bridge ovei-a"dry gully which had been*  under construction for a .'long  time.  The road beyond it was laid and graded  fqr-30 .oi.iles. \vithimopej%.wbich^the;,^l',-  goVerfinient" had',li6rrf>\ved"and"\vere'' ~  paying interest dm- -There-was some:  hocus pocus about.the .bridge which. -  prevented   it   being completed."    The'  government were being- pressed*-to run-  the road  in   two   different  directions-  and they were. pHying two parties off'  one against the other, saying that the"-  l;ne   would he constructed' whenever  the parties agreed.    It may have been  something like this which accounts tortile statement made by the minister of  public works in  New Zealand in bis-  annual report announcing  that great  progiess^had   heen   made   with-    the*  railway's  during  ilie   year  and   that-  eight and n half miles of new road baoV  been constructed-   Political   influence-  is exerted in another way.    If   a   tiiH.ii"     ,  wants-a lot of freight put  through   in    /  a hurry he telegraphs the minister  of '  railways, and if he gets  on   the   right-   -  side'of him a   telegraph  order  comes* .  back oidering the   freight  car   to   be-  hitched on to the passenger train   and;  hauled through.    Indeed such a thing- -  as a passenger eNpress as   we  have it  here is unknown in New Zealand, every  passenger train   having   one   or   two-   J  freight cars attached.  C. B. Hume & Co,  A.

This was the story  of the earlier days of    Halite    Belle  Frederick,   daughter   of   one   of   the  best of the - Jefferson county families.  She attended-school at Science Hill,  Shelbyville.   ���������; There she  'met Edgar  .lames  Vance,  and   a  courtship    was  followed-.by.-one of: the prettiest weddings  that   the little  vilaage  ofvlef-  ferstown had seen for years.

I Miss Schrader is a Minneapolis girl  who gives instruction In fencing, corrective gymnastics, etc. She is a  pupil of the same Otto Mauthe whose  habit it was during his residence in  Minneapolis to:resent all pretensions  to superiority on the part of the professional. Miss Schrader, imbrued with her instruction from  Professor Mauthe has something of  tho latter's asserlivenesr.. She finds  no merit in the pretensions of tbe  Chicago girl, with whom she was for-  pupil .'.-in one of the Chicago          The Chicago woman insists  Whitlock | that she was always able to best Miss  Schrader at the fencing game and expresses confuiene in her ability toVdo  the trick again.  Miss Schrader expresses the opinion  that   Miss   Mower   has     not     altered  much   since   her   amateur   days,   and'  recals that in these days Miss Mower  did   most   of   her   fencing   conversationally.      It  is hardly  necessary   to  go   Into   the  detail   of    this   quarrel.  Everybody understands    the    "I  did"  and  the "you didn't" style of controversy that sometimes leads to broken  lances  in   the tea  fights of  good  society.     It is uot so very different in  fencing matters.

A"<-  "   etc  ery: afternoon for the last three  weeks Miss Scharder has been practicing hard with one of the best male  fencers in the city. VTo see her go  after this sacrificial Iamb and dot him  al lover with chalk marks, is a striking lesson in feminine ability. To  paraphrase the novelists, Miss Schrader has a wrist of chilled Bessemer  and an eye that never quails. She  keeps the gentlemen who so kindly  serve as her training crew constantly  cn tiio jump, and some of her surest  lunges seem destined to go clean  through their mark. tips, pads and  all.  As the matter stands at present, it  is arranged that Miss Mower, who Ih  shortly to open a school in St. Paul,  shall .'meet Miss Schrader tn throe  separate engagements. The first of  these will be brought off in Minneapolis, the sfecond In St. Paul, and  the third according to the toss of a  coin at the conclusion of the second  meeting. There geems pretty good  reason to anticipate a rattling exhibition in the opening here.  ing gun, discretion made them hal���������.  and where tiie team stopped wore  almost in front o������ the Brahdlt bank.  At that moment tho excitement was  greatly intensified by the appearance  of a flaxen haired, blue-eyed and altogether attractive younc woman.  who was crying hysterically and asking her father if thev would get back  their  money.  One or the three men in the wagon  jumped   down   and   asked   Mr.   Faith  if he would talk the rbattir over privately.      He was cool and calm.-and  he  told   the  people  around that there  was    certainly    a    misunderstanding,  and   that   an   interview  would    soon  straighten   it out.      He  invited    Mr.  Faith into the bank, and with perfect  sangfroid,   asked   the    cashier    if  he  might   use   the   private   room   for   a  few   minutes.      Miss   Faith    insisted  upon   accompanying   her   father,   and  when  he  said   it  was  no',  necessary,  she replied with great teuiDer:    "You  have  made  a   fool  of    yourself  once  ~iodajT-and--yoti-Ehan't.-rtt.-it-aeain-if-  I  can  help It."  P.y this time most of tne Brandle  population had: congregated, and when  the young woman's remark was - repeated it met with much anplause.  After the interview wh.c.h lasted  less than 10 minutes. Mr. Faith came  out with his daughter close, behind  him. When he started for the door  she grabed himby the coat and said:  "No you don't. Put the money back  in bank���������every cent of it. Don't go  out with it, or you'll lose it again."  The old man acted as 1������ dazed, but  did ns he waa bid; and ahove'd  through the crating 10 new $100  notes. The cashier looked at them  sharply, then put them under a mlc-  roscopo and finally said: "I don't  like this new money. It may he  counterfeit."  "Thoy're tha bills we ������ot from you,"  said the w������U dressed < man. speaking  to Mr.  Faith.  "That's a He."  was      the  response.  "I gave you  the ones J eot from the  hank,   and   you   know   these   weren't  the ones." addressing the cashier.  The cashier corroborated hirn.  Heath , and  the  sheriff ; held  many  quiet  conferences   in   the   old   office,  still  bemoaning the ,Quietude of  the  county,  but  flndine endless  material  for   speculation   in   Mr. -Faith's   experience,  and they    wondered    what  had become, of the Faiths, for the old  man sold ^ut and moved away soon  after the affair.     But a month later  an  unsigned  letter    came to    Heath  from New  York  city.

MARTIN ACTIVE  A Caucus Held���������Nothing Definite Done  Sir Charles' Valldictory.���������Alarming  Rumors Regarding  the Health of the King.���������A New York Report  That he has Cancer of the Throat.  Ottawa, Feh. 6.���������Over ?0 members  and senators attended the Conservative caucus last night under the pre-  aldency of Mr. W. R.- Brock, member  for Centre Toronto. Considerable divergence ot oplnon was manifested on  the question of the leadership and the  final decision was postponed until  tonight when more members will be  here. Some want a permanent leader  chosen, the majority, however, favor  the choice of a sessional leader, and  these have Mr. R. C. Borden ln view.  The suggestion was thrown out to  hold a convention In tho near future  when the questions ot policy will be  determined. Tho president, shortly  after -the members had assembled,  read Sir Charles Tupper's farewell  address to thc party. It was dated  Montreal, January 17. In it Sir  Charles regrets that his absence from  Canada during the period assigned  for the meeting of parliament will  prevent him bidding farewell personally to his old friends and supporters  In the house of commons and in the  senate. He says: "I should be ungrateful indeed If I were to retire  from the leadership of the party with  which I have been identified for 45  years without expressing my appreciation of your devotion to me personally., It must be a source of pride  and gratification to you that the  party, although defeated, is thoroughly united and devoted as one man to  the patriotic principles that have  always" characterized it. The four or  flve years spent in opposition have  not heen an evil, if they have helped  to bring about this result." He says  that it is signflcant that during the  late campaign in which Conservative  declarations were criticized and the  intentions of .the party misrepresented, no word of condemnation was  uttered for tho great measures accomplished by the Liberal Conservative  party in the-past in the face of th'e  ��������� strenuous and sometimes bitter opposition of the Liberals. This, in his  judgment. is .the crowning  vein of ��������� the great Liberal  Conservative policy. He reviews the  accomplishments of the Liberal Con j  scrvntive party in the past, the main- I  ��������� tenance of British connection, the  completion of the confederation, the  construction of the C. P. R., the repudiation of unrestricted reciprocity  with the United States. These were  all inspired largely by a determination to maintain at all hazards and  at all costs Canada's priceless birthright, as a part of the British empire.  He says there remains two important  planks iu the platform of the Liberal  Conservative party yet to be made effective. . Namely, the establishment  of a fast steamship line, between  Cauada and the United Kingdom and  flie arrangement of a system' of reciprocal preferential trade between  thc  mother  country  and   the Domin-  Whon the    Conservatives were  Vancouver, B.

HIGHER RATES'  A Parable  The following lines were written  by a member ot the second' contingent and while we do not advance  the sentiments contained as our  own, the parable contains some fine  humor and may be of interest to  some ot our readers:  A Parable  There was a certain man whose  name was John Bull, and he had five  sons, and three of them went into  a far country, where they prospered  exceedingly, and begat children so  that their seed was as sand upon  the seashore ot multitude.  And the names of these three  children were Canada, Australia and  New Zealand, but the other two sons  abode in their father's house;' and  they are as the llgh of his eyes���������  they and their children. And the  names of their children were C.J.V.  and I.Y. And it came to pass that  there was much work to be done ln  the fields of John Bull, and he was  vexed exceedingly���������yea, ln sore  sralts���������Inasmuch as the work was  great and the laborers were few.  And his children of Canada, Australia and Now Zealand, when they  heard of these things, took council  together, and said, "Behold! Now  this John Bull, our father's father,  he Is ln sore straits because of the  work he hath to do, and he hath  only one hired servant, one Tommy,  to accomplish the labor wherewithal.  Shall we not go to him and say, 'Lo.  we are the seed of thy loins, and  verily blood Is thicker than water;  let us therefore work in thy fields  for such time as the labor Is so far  accomplished that the rest may he  done by Tommy, thy hired servant.'"  And they sent messages to John  Bull, and told him, and he, when he  had heard these things, was exceedingly glad, and waxed vain-glorious among his neighbors, saving  unto  them:  Behold now my children's children, how when they heard that I  was in sore straits, they come and  labor In my fields; yea. they- make  themselves even as mine hired servants, that my work mav he accomplished."  And the children, of Canada, Australia and New Zealand tarried not,  for the need was pressing, but they  left their wives and their .children,  their flocks and their herds, even all  that they possessed, and hastened  into  the fields  of John  Bull.  And John Bull made them even as  Tommy, his hired servant, and set  over them an overseer, one Roberts���������  a just man. and of good repute���������so  that the fame cf "his uprightness had  gone out even unto the countries of  Canada, Australia and New Zealand.  And the children of Canada, Australia and New Zealand rejoiced and  i 'vere exceeding glad that such a one  been  set over them.  work which' is to do in his fields.  How then shall be answer him when  peradventure he may say unto us:  "Come over,and help me that I may  accomplish the labor .whereunto I  have >et .my . hand?"  Shall not the bitterness ot the dirt  we have eaten abide in our mouths?  How then shall we answer bim?  And they cried with one accord  thus shall we make answer unto him:  Aforetime, when thou wast ln sore  straits an troubled exceedingly, did  we not leave all that we had and  labor for the thee, and thou didst  shamefully treat us. Now, therefore,  do thine own work as hest thou may-  eat, even thou and thy young men  C.I.V. and I.Y., who abide with thee,  for we have work of our own to  do, fields to till, flocks to guard, and  leave them lightly no more.   o   THE  FIRST  PETTICOAT  GOVERNMENT  -Montreal, Feb. 6.���������The Flre Underwriters Association of Canada met  Monday and decided to increase the  insurance, rates throughout Ontario,  "���������tehee and Manitoba, the action  .ing based largely on the report of!,,.,,,  .ispector Hull. ,   ul   .^ |    And  the  striplings  C.I.V.  and  I.Y.  -,_rTT ������ idi.l   John   Bull   also   send    cut,   that  STILL IN THE RING [they  might  labor  in   the  fields  with  the children of Cauada.

This, in Sir Charles' opinion,  is the most important issue before the  people of Canada. He expressed the  belief that the party will continue to  work for tbe best interests of'Can-  adn by restoring any tendency - to  pernicious legislation by giving a  loyal support to all proposals in the  - Interests of the country and by Initiating such measures for tho common weal as are neglected by the  administration.

Orders were Issued  Now Zealand and with Tommy, his  hired servant. But they did come  into the fields clad in purple and  fine linen, yea in splendid raiment,  for they understood not the work  whereunto they weie called; and  they skipped about liko young fawns,  yea, even as the young of a wild ass  disported they themselves. Nevertheless did Roberts, the 'overseer,  continually send tidings unto the  house of John Bull, saying unto him:  "Behold the young men. C.I.V. and  I.Y., whom thou didst send out to  labor in thy fields and the work  which they do."  The young men, the children of  Canada, Australia and New Zealand,  and Tommy, the hired man. they do  labor exceedinely faithful, but the  work which they do Is as naught,  compared with the work of the young  men. C.I.V. and I.Y.���������verily, "they  will not be denied."  And when the children of Canada,  Australia and New Zealand, and  Tommy, the hired' Servant, heard  these "things, they murmured among  themseives, saying: "Have we not  borne the burden and heat of the  day. while the young men, C.I.V. and  I.Y., have disported themselves? Is  It therefore meet, and seemly that  this Roberts should send these tidings continually to John Bull?"  They having bethought them���������they  took " counsel together concerning  the matter and saia: "Lo, are not  the_young men^C.I.V. and I.Y. as the  "light of his eyes"iunto~John-Bullrand-  shall not the tidings of this Roberts  concerning them be pleasing in the  ears of the old man? Let us therefore have no bitterness in our  hearts, let us rather labor the more  faithfully.so that when all is accomplished John Bull himself shall see  what manner we have done."  And  they said with    one    accord:  "So be it," and they did murmur uj  more, but  did' labor  exceeding  hard.  But when the  day was  spent and  the evening drew nigh and the work  was  well  nigh  done,   John. Bull  did  send   messengers   unto   Roberts   even  unto the overseer, saying unto him:  "Send now unto my house the young  men  C. I. V.  and I. Y.  that 1  may  make merry with them, and reward  them   according   to   the   great  work  which they  have done for me.    For  I have  prepared  a  feast  for    them,  meat and wine���������yea the flesh of the  turtle, and' the wine which Is called  champagne,   which   foameth   when  it  It  poured  into  the vessel.    But the  young men,  the children ot Canada,  Australla'and New Zealand, let them  remain,   in  the   field   with     Tommy,  mine hired  servant,  that    they may  finish  the  labor,  even unto  the  last  jet and tittle."  And Roberts did with the young  men even as John Bull had commanded him.  Now when the children of Canada,  Australia   and   New   Zealand     heard  these  things,    they"   were   exceeding  wrath, and their hearts were full ot  bitterness,   and   they   said     one     to |  another,   "Why  hath  John   Bull   entreated us so shamefully?    Have we  not left our wives and our children,  and   our   flocks   and  herds���������yea,   did  we not leave our own fields untitled  that  we   might   hasten   to   labor   in  the fields of John  Bull?      And  now  that we have labored exceeding faithfully all the day, and the work which  is yet to do can easily- be don������   by  Tommy,   even   thy    hired    servant���������  for unto this end is he hired���������behold  we are left in the field, while John  Bull doth feast and make merry with  his  young men  CXV. and I.Y."    In  The readers of the Gentlewoman, a  London weekly paper, have been amusing themselves by electing a new  cabinet, says the Montreal Star. Even  Lord Salisbury would admit that the  result Is an improvement on the present administration because the' new  ministers are all ladles, and all are,  of course, chosen for their special aptitude for the office assigned to them.  The ministry will probably be known  as the Devonshire-Aberdeen administration, because the vote for prime  minister and Lady Privy Seal resulted In a tie between the Duchess of  Devonshire and the Countess of Aberdeen. The Baroness Burdett-  Coutts was rightly f-.onstdered by  many voters to know enough about  money and to have had sufficient  experience' ln handling It, to obtain  for her ladyship the two important  portfolios of flrst lord of tha treasury  and chancellor of the exchequer. But  the Baroness was beaten for the first  office by Lady Francis Balfour, and  for the second hy Mrs. Charles McLaren. The selection of Lady Warwick, who has taken considerable Interest in the agricultural education of  girls, as president of the board of agriculture, seems also to show a development of feminine sagacity, which  will go far to justify the extension of  the franchise to the dominant sex.  Lady Henry. Somerset's cla'.ms to the  presidency, of the local government  board are strong, hut she was beaten  by Miss Alice Busk. Lady Margaret  Verney's school board services doubtless secured her election as lady president of the council.. Mrs. Charles  Mallet must have exceptional business qualifications for the presidency  of the board of traue, unless she was  selected on the principle upon' which  .John Bright declared that he was  chosen for-the same office; namely,  that he knew less abo,ut trade than  any other member of the government.  (This, by the way, was as near as  tarradidle as a Quaker, even when a  politician, ever goes).  But the most astounding revelation  of   the   voting  is   that   most   of   the  ladies   selected . ior     high     cabinet  office   by   the   "Gentlewoman's"   gentlewomen, long ago    recognized their  own  fitness for the    offces now    assigned to them hy popular vote. Recognizing  that  the  blind    prejudices  of the  ago  against petticoat government prevented them forming such a  model administration as is now suggested, they surmounted the obstacle  by marrying the very-men who  are  going to fill the offices,for which they  themselves are now chosen.     For Instance, while th'e blind prejudice  referred to could prevent Miss Tenant  fiom   beconiinf;  a   home secretary,  it  ���������-ould not prevert her from marrying  7v!r. AsquHh   and ruling the home" department  tlnoiigh   his  nominal    sec-  taryshlp   Another  illustration  of  the  same triumph - of feminine determination over the blind  prejudice of  the  less intelligent sex, is shown in    the  selection   of -the   Countess   Cadogan,  wife of the present Lord Lieutentant  of  Ireland,  as  _ady    Lieutenant    of  Ireland, althougn the Duchess of Ab-  ercorn,   wifo   of   another   Lord   Lieutenant, and Lady Iveagh, wife of the  notable  lord  who    represents    Giun-  ness' Stout in the house of lords, were  close in the running.     For lady high  chancellor  we    have    Lady    Jeunne,  wife of Sir Francis Jeunne, .who has  justified   her   ladyship's   selection   of  himself by becoming president or the  probate  divorce  and  admlrallty  division of the high court of justice, and  has every prospect of ultimately adorning the Woolsack now assigned to  his wife. For the office of postmaster  general,  there  was naturally a keen  competition,   because   it   is   the   only  portfolio that carries with it the right  to  free postage and  the  privilege  of  reading     other    people's    post-cards.  "Here~by~one~of"these-marveilous-co--  incidences Mrs. Heneker Heaton, wife  of the father of Imperial penny postage, and, therefore, to he regarded as  the   mother,   or  at  least    the     stepmother of    Imperial    penny postage,  was only defeated by the triumph of  Mrs.   Fawcett,   wife   of   an   ex-postmaster  general.      Miss  Agnes    Weston,'"the Sailors' Friend." ran second  for the office of first lady of thc admiralty, beating Lady Charles Beresford, but being; Deaten by Lady Bras-  sey.  wife  of  Lord  Brassey.  formerly  civil lord    of    the    admiralty.    Lady  Sarah Wilson, of,Mafeking fame, lost  the war oflice   through the"  superior  generalship of Lady Roberts, In marrying a man  destined to be a commander ln chief.  , It is gratifying to know that it the  effect  of female  emancipation should  be to compel a lot of    distinguished  statesmen to take their turn at staying at home and minding the babies,  the reins of government in  England  are likely, nevertheless, to remain in  the same families as at present���������and  in   some  cases,  doubtless,  practically  in the same hands.  Chinese Damsels Sold Publicly in San  Francisco, The Girls were Sold to  Pay the Travelling Expenses of their  Owner.  Five Chinese girls were sold at  public auction in Chinatown, in San  Francisco, last Saturday, as publicly  as if they were ln Canton, where  such human slavery is a recognized  institution. Those girls were the uro-  perty of Gong Gow, an old Chinese,  who has kept for years one of the  most disreputable dens tn Chinatown. He wanted to ko hack to  China, so he advertised to sell the  furniture and chattels of his establishment at auction.  According to the Chinuse custom,  the creditors of Gong appeared and  posted bills on tho door of his place,  specifying their claims. Every Chinaman who bid at auction agreed to pay  all claims against the particular girl  he fancied. When the sale began  there was a large crowd. The girls  stood stolidly by, as if tliey were accustomed to such proceedings, having  been sold in Canton before they were  brought here. They Drought fancy  prices, as the restriction act Ib so rigidly enforced now that lt is difficult  to get pretty Chinese girls Into tho  country. They sold from $1,700 to  ?2,500 each, and they were at once removed to new quarters.  The place where they lived is to be  occupied by the Canton Merchants-  club, as well as a gambling resort,  with eight tables and very beautiful  decorations an<t a-.-tistiu furniture.  smmwimwwimwmniinmwiiiiiiii[������WHMnmiiiiiiiHmi  THE MOLSONS BANK  Incorporated by Act of PakliAKknt, 1855.   .

There are  two great periods in. thc history of  modern Europe���������the age of Louis  XIV. and the Victoria era.     -.  Yes. she was the grandest figure'of  last  century,   a" wonderful   Influence  for   good,   the   very"   mother  of  the  Anglo-Saxon race.      I am sure very  few Americans do not feel tho loss  ot the  Queen  as  a  personal  one,   a  calamity   that     has     befallen     their  race. For years'and  years thp British    people     will      speak . of    her;,  to  their  deaths  they will   remember  her.   -They will always speak of her  love tor England and for hor people,  of her devotion to her husband, children and grand children; of her   quiet  life, of her great virtues, of her little  fads even, which will make hor memory  still   more' human    and   lovable,  of the faithful manner'in which she  respected    the      constitution    of her  country and the feelings of her sub-  subjects,   of the , wonderful  tact  and  thoughtfulness   which   always   caused  her  to   put  the  right person  in  the  right place, and say the right thing  to the right person at the richt moment. It was  by setting an example  of  the  purest  of   lives,   of  allowing  her  people  to   govern  themselves   as  they thought fit.  by    never    mixing  herself with politics, by being such a  clever  diplomatist thai  not  a  single  English  man or woman,  "outside  of  those In the know." could tell whether  she was  Conservative or Liberal,  by  sympathizing  in  the  joys    and "sorrows of h.er    humblest    subjects,  hy  creating  bonds  of  affection   between  the cottage and the throne that Queen  Victoria  inspired  ln  her  subjects    a  love that was akin to worship.  But what perhaps appealed more to  the middle class of England, was tho  simplicity of her life and the careful manner In which she brought up  her children. People were fond of  saying,-_i!She _would-have made,: an  .admirable poor man's wife." And'  this feeling seemed to bring her  nearer to them.

There is a very general   expectation  among   those who    have    paid    the  necessary attention   to   the   situation  that 1001 is going to   prove   a  record  year   for   mining   in   Kootenay.     Of  (-purse no one expects the frantic rush  of would be millionaires such   as   was  witnessed in '00 but the signs all  point,  to a considerable influx of capital   and  a large increase of activity   hi.mining I  operations.    Puhlic attention   will   be I  once   more     pointedly     directed     to  Kootenay and there will be   a  chance  for the great wealth   of   onr   mineral  resources     to     receive     considerable  advertisement.'   Such a stale of affairs  will   constitute  another  chance    for  Revelstoke to .tiring the   vast   natural  resources lying latent in the Big Bend  and Canoe River sections prominently  to the front.    At the last  opportunity  something was done but   not   enough.  In fact iho irrational character  nf the  stampede   lo   Rossland    rendered    it  almost impossible to divert any of   its  possilile advantages to other   sections  of Kootenay.    We may   expect,   however, to sue a great   difference   in   the  nature, of the   next,   period   of  public  interest'in Kootenay and the business  and mining men of Revelstoke should  takealesson from their past experience  and stand  ready   lo   take   the   fullest  advantage of   the   coming "rush"   loi  the beneiit.of the greatmiuer.il district  north of the main linivto   which  their  town is the only possible gateway.

Mr.  Wells, as wi; know, is willing to shove  the wagon   mud    un    as   soon   as   lhe  season opens as far as navigable water  above the canyon      So   far.   so   good.

But  further than  this as  the ..government  recommend s steamhoatconnection,  to  be established at lirst,v rather   ihanlo  incur the expense of constructing the  waggon road  at present further than  navigable  water   above    tlie  canyon.
