McNiven in which the  Lhe respondent sued for $1,(/KI, t.he  amount of an accident policy huld by  her husband, who was killed un the  Canadian Pacilic Railway Coinpmy,  by Whicli he wiis employed. The  defence was that deceased was insured  as a baggage master, that the policy  forbade him to expose himself voluntarily to unnecessary danger,'that a  condition was that- if insured was  injured while engaged'in any occupation or exposure more' hazardous  than  -oW KWif&iPi 1hisa.*tMisa-tw?ii-lli6A'miiii  would purchase at the rates  fixed for  such increased   hazard,   that   he   was  killed while coupling cars;   a   brakesman's work, and .a-.brakesman, could  not have mor than $500 insurance lor  $20. while deceased only paid $7.50 for  $1,000.'

The judgment  appealed from was for over $1,000, but  defendants had paid $15lJ  into   court,  claiming that if liable at; ill it was   for  that sum only.* Counsel claimed   that  only the difference was in dispute   on  the appeal and not sufficient to confer  jurisdiction."

Was the Price Paid by the  Metropolitan Gold and Silver  Mining Co.. Ltd., For the  Famous Triune Mine.  Perhaps the most phenomenal Jof  any mining success in Konteuay has  been the sudden rise into the front  rank of shipping properties of the  Triune mine near Ferguson? This  properly was puichiised by David and  Andrew Ferguson from the original  locator. F. Appicost, 111 100O, being 'at  the lime litllo more than a mere  prospect. Since then in two seasons  $82,870 worth afore has been shipped  from the mine and the olher day ii.  Was turned over to the Metropolitan  Gold and Silver Mining Co.. Ltd., the  purchase price being lhe very large  sum of $G')0,000 in cash and shares.  This is a record which ��������� thu Herald  thinks it will ho hard tu beat, in the  history of mining, not only in Kootenny, but on any rninp on the continent.  f.The Triune group consists of live  claims, the Enterprise, Silver Chief,  Kamloops, Revenge and- Triune, and  is situated'south' of the Silver Cup  mountain, about nine mile* from  from Ferguson, at the headwaters of  11? tributary of the south fork of the  Lardeau, now known as Triune creek.  Two tunnels had boen driven on the  pYnperty and ore has been encountered  fiom the grass roots. The chutes are  of exceptional size currying galena,  carbonates and. zinc blende,, tlie  carbonates being of extraordinary  richness?. Tliu .  galena      curries  antimonial'silver. -**��������� The* values are'  very high in gold, silver, and lead.

Thu property was first, operated  un-nii" Bros, of Fergiifon, ~.ard  "subsequently wh������*>n their lease expired  by the owners, the Ferguson Bros. Il  is now the property of the Metropolitan  Fold and .Silver Mining Co., Ltd., a  Minneapoli**|syndicale, who have olher  considerable  holdings .in the Lardeau,  under the management of C. XV. Mc-  Grossnn. The purchase price is we  have stated, the very large sum of  $000,000 in cash and shores in the  company. The new owners intend to  work the mine on 11 largo scale ns soon  us tho snow goes off. A smelter within  1500 feet of the mine, and an aerial  tramway to carry the ore down to lhu  smelter nre contemplated .in thu  immediate future.  Thu Lardeau Smelting and lefluing  Co., a sister corporation, intend  putting in Vulcan smelters at  Goldiields and Trout Lake City,  together with the one now ready for  operation in Ferguson.  Thu Hkiiai.d believes that the  Triune is a property which has a  bright future before it under careful  management. The Ferguson Bros.,  who have disposed of the property to  the company, are to be congratulated  on the very good price which they  obtained, though we believe that the  purchasers will find that they hare [n  bonnt17.11' even at the price wliich they  have paid for it. Messrs. D. and A..  Ferguson are'practical men. who have  been working away quietly without  anv particular flourish of trumpets in  the development of mining in .the  Lardeau for quite a while and lheir  hosts of friends in this district will be  delighted lo hear of the successful  termination of their negotiation for  the disposal of this banner property.

Toward the last ol Lhe third year .Mr.  (���������Aiiihrill got angry and made np his  mind that he would have that $4,011 if  it took twenty years. So he began a  literary bombanlmcnt of every ojVici.il  of the company, from president to  section buss, asking "why in thunder  tliey didn't, give his claim attention."  Fie hail every employe on the lint* from  Baltimore to Chicago guessing. The  Gambrill claim became a* historical  liy word.  If the company thought tu shuke olT  its creditor by ignoring him it reckoned  not of Mr. GambrilPs bump of tenacity.

During the eighteenth year Air.  Gambrill took to sending not only his  own ollice boy but those loaned him*  by his fellow conspirators on the  "street'' with scented notes, addressed  in the long and scruggly hieroglyphics  of tlie present fashion, to various high  oflicials of the line.  These letters proved to be the lust  straw, and won the battle, for it does  not require any great discernment lo  understand that high railroad officials,  especially married ones, could ill ytt'ord  to have scented notes laid on their  desks when their better halves were  liable to drop in at any time, and thus  make explanations necessary.  Thc note that accompanied the remittance was brief, and merely stated  lhat the claim had been allowed and  thanked Mr. Gambrill "for kindly calling the attention of the compnny to  the error," and '.'awaiting his further  Wind coinm-inds," which goes to .������how  that all the funny men are not writing  jokes for the cornic supplements of the  S u ii d'u y "ii e w spa'pe rsr  Ground Floor Chance to Build a Fortune.

Mr. Young;  ntutes that he was most successful, n������  he hud interestedsomeol'thtt strongest  financial men of Toronto, MuntroAl  and olher cities in the proposition,  and that now mutters are in such  shape- that a smelUr in Ailmola i������  assured. Tlie smoker will go up  without delay and will bo of MO tons a  (lay capacity, although designed no  that, this can be increased to 1000  without the slightest difficulty so soon  a* the number of operating u.inaji  shall have been sufficiently increased  to keep a larger smelter busy. Copper  and IvenmWy mountains, (about two  and a half miles distant from Aalinola  will bu the new smulter'ti chief m'k  supply, the product of the properties  on these two. mountains being copper  and gold in valuable and easily worked  combinations. Silver-lead ores will lie  drawn from Boulder Creek, where  development has progressed sufficiently to showiniinenue. bodiee admirably placed for profitable working.  The ores of the Nickle Plate mine in  the vicinity of Twenty-mile and of  other properties in. that locality are _  high grade gold and silver, with just  sufficient iron to be self fluxing -and -  most economical. It, too, will find a '  a natural- market at Ashnola, while,  for which reason the new town haa  been selected by the smelter projectors,  lime and every other smelter requisite  is found in generous abundance within  a radius'of 20 milus, the fact of.having  fuel * at their doors, giving the smelter  people nn immense advantage, over .  their business rivals. The two companies,' while distinct and separate  will naturally work- in harmony  through community of interests and  by their operations Ashnola can hardly  escape becoming one of the butieet  and most prosperous centres of  population in all the rich interior of  this     splendidly    endowed Pacific  province. In the diiposal of the stock  of the new smelter company the  same' popular and patriotic uourse  will be pursued ns with the coal  company's���������tha major portion of the  stock being offered in British Columbia, so that our own people may  profit through the opening and  development of their heritage. It is  perhaps too early to discuss details  but Mr. Young is satisfied as to the  certainty of railway connection with  tho outside world, and given this he  knows of no other point ih British  Columbia whereat a smelter might  combine so many aud important  natural advantages as at Ashnola.  Rich metalliferous mines immediately  adjacent coal and coke at the very  doors, timber in inexhaustible supply,  and an agricultural district capable ef  supporting o, large and prosperous  population without the importation of  any of the necessities of life, what  more could be asked wherewith t������  build legitimately the fortunes of ar  great community^  In all the steps that have so far been  taken in the presentation of tbe  Similkamcen's advantages before the  public Mr. Young has proven loyal te  his distiiet in a marked degree and  helpful in no. small manner to those  who are sincerely active - in working  fcr British Colombia progress' and  prosperity.���������Ex.  !/i  '   t  : 1  0"-  !

The Oddfellows ball last night in the  Selkirk hall was very enjoynbl e as is  usual with any social function undertaken by the brotherhood of the mystic  three links. The attendance was  smaller than it would have been but  for tonights attraction.  The Easter services ln the Roman  Catholic and Anglican churches wore  well attended. The Roman Catholic  church was exquisitely decorated with  a profusion of white lilies, and other  white flowers from the coast. At St.  J'eter's the floral decorations were  almost exclusively confined to the  altar.  The platinum carried in the ore on  the Hamilton claim on Kennedy Mt.  near Princeton,- is believed to be  associated wilh a magnetic iron, which  is distributed in varying quantities  through lhe ore.

A letter was addressed lo the  Honorable the Minister of Education  iUh ultimo asking that the sum of  .**> 15,00(1 he granted this city for the  purpose mentioned, and a reply wns  i-pr-eived from tbe Minister that the  "I'nni.ing of such a sum was (pike out  i.f tbe rpipstion.  This council would a-sk you to me  your good oflices with th* MinUtur uf  kducation with .1 view to inducing  hiin to ���������������������������.consider his decision, or to,  at least, increase the SiS,-/'! granted j  last se������������ion to 1*03.000.  The council is informed, on very  credible authority, that the Ministry  assured the private members of the  Legislature thatin order to mitigate  the weight of the. burdon imposed on  llie munir-ipolieies-. by the transfer of  the national schools fn.m tbe province  to the.municipalitic--. the government  would give thc .ichools a good start by  providing efficient equipment anrl  good buildings, buildings that would  provide ample accommodation for the  pupil* for some time to come.  The school buildings turned over by  t.he government to this municipality  are absolutely useless for th<* purpose  for which they are designed, tliey  cannot lie adapted for this purposeaiid  they will havo In be discarded altogether.  Apart from their utter unsuitability  as school buildings the present scliool  premises ara in/tdequate or the  accommodation of the present attendance at thc public school, and l.,u city  has been under a monthly expense of  twenty dollars for the rent or an  additional building.  The school trustee* and the city  council have always been and are now  of the opinion that $15,000 is the  irreducible minimum necessary to  provide this school district with  suitable buildings for school purposes  so that it is evident thnt the city will  have to supplement the grant of the  government to some extent. This is  unfortunate as the additional burden  placed upon the taxpayers of thismnni-  cipalify liy thoir assumption of the re-  -ponsibility of maintaining the public  school 'a already severely taxing its fin-  incial resources.-The trustees estimate  that $1,800 over and above the govern-  mentgrantwillberequiredfor the running expenses. To meet this charge on  thetreasuryitwillbenecessnrytolevy.il  rate of at least four mills on the dollar  upon the taxable property within the  city. Theact gives power to raise but*  two for school purposes.  In conclusion 1 would assert, with  all deference and respect, that the  ���������request��������� of���������the���������municipal-eoiuieil-in-  this respect is fair and very reasonable.
