WHY   DID   JOHNSON ,RESIGN?  Was It Because H. K. Croasdaile Regarded. Him  as the Apple of His Eye?  Henry I_. Croasdaile, genera] manager  of the Hall Mines, is somewhat worked tip  over the statement wliich appeared in  the last issue of Tine Ti.iih'Nic to the effect  that the resignation of Paul Johnson as  smelter superintendent was clue to friction  which existed between himself and Croasdaile. If Tiik Ti.ii.i.xk were published  for the sole purpose of furnishing pleasant- reading for Jf. 1_ Croasdaile, this  seemingly offensive statement would not  have appeared, but as T1112 Turn, x 10  believed and does believe that the interference of Mr. Croasdaile with the smelting department was the chief cause which  prompted Paul Johnson to seek other employment, Tin-; T .iihjn . said so.'  Late last eveningTiii'.Tmni;.._ received  a communication from IMr. Croasdaile  upon the subject, in which he undertakes  to say that the reason assigned by Tins  Tmiu;x_ for the superintendent's resignation was entirely untrue. Kudosed  with this letter was a note from Paul  Johnson to Mr. Croasdaile. The letter  with its enclosure follows:  To tiik Kditoh ok Tun Tkiiu'.vk���Dear Sir: In [lie  nolice\voti published last week on llie resignation of  Paul .Johnson from the eniploy of lhe Hall .Mines, Ltd.,  you gave an entirely untrue reason for his leaving. .

(Jkoasiiaim���:. ICsi. . Ueneral Manager, Nelson���Dear Sir: At your request I will Male what. I ineii-  lioned to the board of directors in tendering my resignation. That the reason for my leaving tho company's  service is that I was ollered a position as superintendent  of one of the largesi, and tin .sL smelling works on (his  continent at considerably belter terms and conditions  than here.    Vnm.  truly, .  PAl'L JOHNSON.  Nelson. II. C, August 201 h, ISII7.  It is manifest that this note from Paul  Johnson was obtained for the purpose of  showing that there was no interference  with the smelting department on the part  of the business office, nor any frictiou between Paul Johnson and IT. K. Croasdaile  by reason of the same. Now it should be  remembered that Tiik Tuii.t/xi-; specilic-  1 ally stated that such friction existed. It  is therefore somewhat signilieant that  Paul Johnson does not deny Tin-. Tuns-  unk's statement. If there had beenno  interference, and consequently no friction, how easy it would have been for Paul  Johnson to have said so.  If there was no unpleasantness between  Paul Johnson and II. E. Croasdaile, what  object did Raul Johnson have in cabling  his resignation to the directors iu London  instead of handing it to their representative iu this city V IT PaulJohnsou and II.  I.. Croasdaile loved each other a.s brothers  why was II. I.. Croasdaile so completely  ignored in the placing of the superintendent's resignation before the board of  directors? With respect to the feelings  which IT. IL Croasdaile entertained towards Paul Johnson Tin-: Tuii._n_ will  concede that IT. li. Croasdaile understood  them better than any one else, but it submits that if such feelings were kindly "and  generous they were difficult of interpretation through fl. TI Croasdaile's action.  From the plan adopted by Paul Johnson  in cabling his resignation it is evident  tliat the .superintendent did not so interpret them.  Tun Thip.un . may be wholly wrong in  this matter, but simply because 11. F.  Croasdaile says it is, the fact is not established to Ti i I'.'Tn i HUN.'.'., satisfaction. Tiik  Triihjn _ does uot wish to discount any  person's good nature. Jf it has done PL  li. Croasdaile an injustice it will be pleased  to make such amends as it can. It would  suggest that PL li. Croasdaile give the  superintendent another chance to deny  what he altogether failed to deny iu his  first denial. Get him to say that he never  imagined that there wax any interference  with his department; that the best of  feeling, has prevailed- between himself  and PL li. Croasdaile, and that he regarded  certain incidents in connection with his  superiutendency merely as an evidence of  PL li. Croasdaile's playfuluess. If Tu.  Tun;uN . is entirely wrong it will be easy  to establish the fact.  Who Told the Truth?  To T11 n H i > it. Hi o f Tu _ T i {1111 ��� N li: As a  shareholder in the Hall Miues I desire  that you will permit me to call the attention of the visiting directors of the Hall  Miues to certain matters connected with  the management of the company's affairs  here which it is to the interest of the  company to have cleared up. As the last  general, meeting of the company held in  London the charge was made that under  Mr. Croasdaile's management, a boiler ordered for use at the company's smelter in  Xelson was hauled up to the company's  mines on Toad mountain, a distance of  ten miles, and afterwards brought back  to the company's smelter at Nelson. Also  that a'hoist ordered for use at the mines  on Toad mountain was taken up to the  miues, sent from the mines back to Nelson, and returned to the mines on Toad  mountain the following morning. This  statement was denied at, the general  meeting in London, and the veracity of  the local shareholders wa.s thereby put in  doubt. Messrs. Day and Ward, the visiting directors, are now on the ground,  and on behalf of the shareholder who  made the statements at the London meeting I am now prepared to prove to them  that the statements made by John Macdonald in this ���connection were in accordance with the facts. The men who hauled  tlm machinery to and fro from the mine  to the sin( .ter ate in the city and can  easily be readied. In my opinion the directors owe it to the local shareholders  that they bo allowed  to  establish   their  veracity iu the matter. If they can prove  that they arc right in this instance more  reliance might be placed in further statements which they may-make to their fellow shareholders iu Great Britain. Yours  truly, A. J. Mahks.  A   CONVICTION   SECURED.  Magistrate Crease Pines George W. Brown  .25  I'or Violating- tiie Fire Limits By-law.  Chief of police Wool virion secured a  conviction Tuesday morning in his case  against George \Y\ Brown for violating  the provisions of tne fire limit by-law,  when magistrate Crease imposed a line of  $25 and costs. W. Galliher conducted the  case for the city, P. I.. Wilson appeared  for the defendant. Brown, and J. PL Bowes  assisted on behalf of T. PI. Gifiin, the  owner of the lot upon which Brown was  building.  It was a clear case of an infraction of  the by-law, and while it cannot be denied  that 'George XV. Brown has .got himself  into a very bad position, he has no one  save himself to blame. He made his arrangements lor the lease of the lot and for  the erection of a frame building within  the fire limits fully two weeks after it had  been announced in the local press that the  city council was considering the question  of establishing fire limits. In the face of  these conditions most men would 'have  considered it worth their while to have  consulted the municipal authorities and  ascertained their intentions with respect  to the enforcement of the mooted by-law;  but George W. Brown did nothing of the  kind. He ignored the city council and its  by-laws, and now that he has been called  upon to pay the price of indifference and  carelessness he has no just cause for complaint.  It was not necessary that magistrate  Crease should impose a heavy line iu  Brown's case. He is sufficiently punished  in that he is prevented from completing  the building now under construction.  There is some talk of an appeal, but as  this by-law litis already been before the  privy council in the case of an action instituted by the city of Vancouver, there  is not much anxiety on the part of the  eity council as to its souudness.  Nelson's Credit Compares Favorably.  -' Mayor Scott, of Rossland, has completed  arrangements iu Toronto for the floating  of the Kossland six per cent debentures  at par. As the only charge imposed in  connection with the loan is $100 for legal  expenses, the debentures will net the corporation !p-l!),900. It will readily be seen  that the corporation of the city of Nelson  made a much better bargain in the sale of  its debentures than has been made by the  corporation of Kossland. Nelson sold  $50,000 worth of five per cent debentures  for .-IS.000 as compared with Rossland's  sale of $50,000 worth of six per cent debentures for $-l!),l)00. By selling its bonds  at live per cent thecity of Nelson received  $1,000 less than the city of Rossland, but  it will secure its loan for $10,000 less than  the Rossland loan will cost by way of interest charges. This may mean that the  credit of the city of Nelson is much better  than the credit of the city of Kossland, or  it may mean that the men who are conducting the municipal affairs in Nelson  have more ability than the men similarly  employed in the city of Rossland. In any  case Nelson made a better bargain than  Rossland by $0,100.  The Hurry vs Fiorini Case.  On Wednesday morning Fred Hurry  and Brusa Fiorini, commonly known as  Dago Bill, had a free fight on Baker street  which both may yet have reason to regret.  It is said that the trouble arose over the  impounding of Hurry's cows by Fiorini.  The cows were released by some one and  Fiorini meeting 'Hurry oii the street  braced him for the regular fees provided  under the by-law. -From''arguments the  men soon advanced to blows and a lively  fight was witnessed. In a scuffle one of  Fioriui's fingers found its way into Hurry's mouth and the latter.closed upon it.  Both men were badly bruised about the  head and Fiorini's finger was also damaged. Chief Woolverton got wind of the  affair and had both men summoned to  appear in the police court Friday morning. A. M. Johnson appeared for''Fiorini  and Ti. M. Macdonald for Hurry. The  case against Hurry was called first, but  as his counsel wished to secure a material  witness it was adjourned till Monday  morning at 10 o'clock. As it was desirable to have both cases tried at the same  sitting, the case against Fiorini went over  also.   Sloean Shipments Via Revelstoke.  During the first fifteen days of the present month there was exported from the  Slocan via Revelstoke 1-10 tons of ore of the  value of $42,.-14. In addition to this the Lanark mine, operated by the Lillooet, Fraser  River Company, sent forward LSI tons valued at $10,201.

TOTHK JfiDi'l'OH OP TIIK NKLSON Tidiit.VK:  I shall esteem it as a favor if you will  cause the following facts to be published  in your next issue, in reply to a paragraph which appeared in the last issue of  tlie'NKjL.oN Tiiiiu'.vio under above heading, which' should have read: "Much  Trouble Caused to Oue Man."  Acting under power of attorney from  T. IT. Giffin. the owner of the lot on Baker  street, I, on July 5th, leased the lot to G.  W. Brown, a gentlemau from Portland,,  Ore., at a rental of $75 per month, payable in   advance.   The lease is for five  years, and Mr. Brown was bound to erect  a frame building of not less value than  $2000.    Having heard something of a fire  by-law, 1 called at the municipal office,  and was informed that the by-law was uot  passed,  but was under consideration by  the council.     I   mentioned   this   to   Mr.  Brown, who, on July (i, started  work ou  the lot,  laying foundation. 50 by 05 feet,  at a cost of some $:i00.    Mr. Brown, being  unable to obtain dry lum'ber here to construct the building, gave an order to a  local dealer for dry lumber amounting to  some $1200, to come from the coast.   Mr.  Brown left for Portland, and returned in  about two  weeks.    During   his   absence  part of tho lumber had  been delivered,  and Mr. Brown started building.    Pie was  notified by chief of police Woolverton to  stop, as he was violating the.fire by-law.  The following day he was summoned aud  attended  the police  court,  but the case  dismissed, as it was not shown what kind  of a building he intended  to erect.   He  was represented by counsel, whom he had  to  pay.   Acting on   advice,   he   started  building   again,   aud   was   served fwith  written   notice   to   stop   or   proceedings,  would be taken against him.    1 spoke to  the chief of police and called his attention  to  other buildings, some of which   had  started after Mr. Brown, the  by-law not  coming   into   force   until   July 24.    The  chief said no complaints had been made  against other  parties,  only against Mr.  Brown.    I told him that complaint was  not necessary, the council -passed by-laws  and he was paid to see that they were not  violated,  and  that  if he   did   uot   take  action against all parties that were violating the by-law. aud not pick on one man,  that I would bring the matter before the  police commissioners.     1 believe  he did  take action against all except Mr. Brown,  although he had served him with  notice  to quit.    As I was not interested with any  of the others, I did not care whether they  built or not,  although being anxious to  see Nelson go ahead  with  buildings and  improvements. 1 did notattend the police  court, but was on hand if wanted.   The  result of the trials were made known iu  the Tiuui'NK, and it also sta,tes that Mr.  Brown is as isolated as before.  After the cases were disposed of at the  police court, the chief waited on Mr.  Brown and ordered him to remove several  thousand feet of lumber from the roadway in front of his lot, and threatened to  summons him  for causing obstruction.  Although Mr. Brown is a stranger here,  I have found him to be a gentleman in all  his dealings. Pie is liable for the rent of  the lot for five years, is bound by lease to  erect a building, and has to pay i'or lumber ordered, a considerable portion of  which has been delivered and paid for,  and I for one sympathize with him.  TV. P. Rom .son.  IT   IS   ALL   BLUFF.  The Talk About Excluding Americans From  Working on the Railway Means Nothing,  liver since work was commenced upon  the Crow's Nest road Tin-: Thiih.'nk has  contended that the. statements to the  effect that the government had arranged  matters so that the work was reserved  for Canadians, were not in accordance  with the facts. Citizens of the United  States are employed upon the Crow's Nest  road and what is more, they have secured  contracts for work upon the same.  Captain Armstrong, of Golden, manager of the International Trading company, is rather well known throughout  the interior. What he says respecting  the employment of citizens of. the United  States upon the railway- will no doubt  have more weight than the statements  made in this connection by the editor oi  the Province. In a recent interview Capt.  Armstrong said : "All this talk about  the alien law is a big bugaboo. There is  work i'or every man in the Fort Steele  country. No mau yet in East Kootenay  has been asked his nationality, on the'  Crow's Nest Pass railway or anywhere  else. Turks have the same show in that  country as the Bluenoses. The Crow's  Nest Pass railway is beginning active operations and' there are more men in the  district than ever before. Nevertheless,  as I said, there is work for all who are  there." ,  PERILS   OF   THE   ARCTIC.  but a thin cotton jacket. I stripped off  my firs at once',' and never heeding the  protests of my companions, gave them to  the ancient dame, then journeyed on,  happy to have done a noble deed. My  most frightful experience, however, happened a. few nights ago, when a., prehistoric leviathan emerged'from the vasty  dee)) with horrid clamor' -  "Well,'"said the great Arctic explorer,  shutting down his roller top desk with a  bang, "work's over i'or the day."  HEAVY   MINERAL   EXPORTS.  TWO   GOOD   BY-LAWS.  During the   Past  "Week   There Was Exported  Ore and Matte Worth $138,600.  The exports from the Slocan during the  past week were the heaviest for several  mouths.    There appears to be a desire on  the part of the mine owners to get their  ore forward as rapidly as possible.   Just  what policy they will adopt with respect  to the immediate future is  very much in  doubt.    The returns for the week were:  BUM/TON  and  Police Court Matters. ,_  Robert Hurry was assessed $5 and costs  by magistrate Crease on Wednesday for  depositing kitchen slops on Baker street.  Michael Burns contributed $5 to the  municipal exchequer on Wednesday, as a  penalty for swearing on Baker street.  Rita Nelson was fined $5 and costs by  magistrate Crease on Wednesday for neglecting to take out a trader's license.1  Fred Aston, James Beatty and Louis  Melviu were before magistrate Crease on  Tuesday'upon the charge of having no  visible means of support and for the further offence of living without employment. The magistrate dismissed the trio  with a warning and suggested that they  constitute themselves a board of walking  delegates and teach the striking coal miners their system of living without work-  ins'- '_   May Patch Up a Truce.  The latest phase of the difficulty between the Le Roi Mining conipany and F.  Aug. Heinze, is more favorable to the  Trail smelter. Colonel Turner holds out  the promise that Heinze will receive considerable Le Roi ore if his charges for  treating the same were reasonable. Pie.  emphasized the fact that the Northport  smelter was not made to treat the  entire output of the Le IToi, and some of  it must necessarily go elsewhere. Mr.  Heinze would get this if his price was  right. When the Le Roi is working at  its best, the output will be from 500 to 000  tons per day, whereas the capacity.of the  Northport smelter will be .'500 tons, and it  is this difference that will probably go to  the Trail smelter.  Horsefly Returns Are Small.  Returns received from the mill at the  Horsefly mine, in Cariboo, state that after  a run of I2(i hours 1102 tons of low grade  cemented gravel, wliich was got out in  the course of development work, had been  crushed. The result of the clean-up; was  OTA ounces from the mill and tfO from the  sluices, total, 0-1A ounces gold, valued at  $1002.  Furthest north!   The end has crowned  my  work. ' 1  have  received  my  reward  for months of toil and privation and -will  soon   return   to   civilization   to get  the  laurel wreaths and press notices due me  for my doing ancl daring.   I  have penetrated into this region of frozen solitude  a hundred yards farther than any other  Arctic explorer that ever lived and intend  making   it   two   hundred   before    1    get  through. As I sit here jotting down tliese  few rough notes that my carrier pigeons  will take swiftly back to the bright world  I have left behind, I marvel that I live to  tell the tale of my heroism.   Those who  will read these Avords sitting iu cozy homes  by  glowing  grates, will  think  it impossible, no  doubt,   that  mortal  man could  have had nerve enough to stand all that I  have stood, but the mere fact that I chose  Arctic exploration as a field i'or livelihood,  is proof enough that  I have nerve far iu  excess of-the ordinary run of humanity.  I may not dwell upou these dangers that  1 have passed nor give detailed accounts  of my daring-a  few incidents must suffice, dear readers, for   I  love my  carrier  piegons  too  much to  overburden  them.  I   reached   Bigli, which   is   the  farthest  north  village,   February -31st. or rather,  we reached it, as of course  I  have  some  understrappers with me, for no man. no  matter how great, can do everything by  himself.    The day of our departure from  Bigli, 1 mounted  the  poop  deck  of our  trusty little catboat, and, pointing  to an  iceberg, exclaimed dramatically:    "Men,  Boston looks down upon you and expects  every man to do his duty."   Amid frantic  cheers we sped away into the mysterious  beyond.    Past    mountains    of    ice   that  seemed about  to  fall   upon  us,   through  great fields of glittering snow, right in  the teeth of mad gales that threatened  destruction we journeyed.  Ah, the horror of it all! Twice at night  polar bears broke through our mosquito  netting and three of my trusy men met  death this way. I had several hand to  hand battles with the the monsters, and  while I invariably came out victorious, I  take no credit to myself, for I had been  taking tincture of iron and was impervious  to attack. As we sat at night huddled  about a nickering little Roman candle,  we knew not at what minute the writhing  tentacles of the octopus would entwine  us or the savage talons of Arctic birds  would rend us limb from limb. From  morning till night 1 was kept busy fighting in defense of my party, and during  the past month my knife has been kept  at white heat by the boiling life blood of  the insatiate monsters I have killed.  Juggs and Jaggs, my two lieutenants,  went out one morning to gather bird eggs  for an omelet. They had gone half a mile  or so away when the iceberg on which .we  were at the time split in two with a  dreadful crash, and the detached-portion,  with poor Juggs and Jaggs on it,.floated  away. Heavens! Their shrieks and appeals were awful. Hastily throwing off  my coat and shoes I sprang into the riming; water and swam after them witli  swift, powerful strokes. Soon catching  up with the runaway berg. I screamed  to the men to jump into the sea. They  did so, and I caught them before they  sank for the tenth time. Commanding  each to take firm hold of my legs, I placed  two knives in each hand, and, lighting  whales and sharks at every step, swam  back to the party. They threw down a  rope and drew us up���just in time, too,  for I was almost exhausted. The crew  presented me with a gold-headed cane in  acknowledgement of my heroism and I  ordered "the grog all around. It wa.s a  great day for the Arctic region! And yet  tliese same men grew mutinous and  wished to turn back when tliey found hot  shaving water was an impossibility in  this latitude. A marlinspike in my trusty  right hand stretched two of them out  senseless and brought the others to their  senses. I am suffering extremely from  rheumatism at present, but am enabled  to bear it by the consciousness that I got  it through acting the gentleman. Coming  across the ice field the other day I met a  poor, decrepit! old Ksquimo woman, who  sat shivering in the blast with nothing on  JIATTIC.

Salt Lake Tribune:,, The sinking of the  steamship Mexico on a reef above Sitka  is a vivid reminder of the old days. When  the rush for California began, the old  ships that were coasters on the Atlantic  side were rushed around into the Pacific  and placed on the lines.plying between  San Francisco and Nicaraguaaud I.inama.  They were all insured and all old, aud so  had to be disposed ot as soon a.s better  ships could be obtained to take their  places. So they were lost. It was either  tho fog or the treacherous currents or  something else. What an array of charnel  ships they were! The old Northerner and  Southerner, the Tennessee, the Columbia,  the Yankee Blade, the Brother Jonathan,  the Golden Gate, the Constitution and a  score of them. Of the whole, there were  but three good ships, the Blade, the  Tennessee, and the Golden Gate. The  latter was burned, an honest catastrophe. The "Tennessee" went ou the  heads off San Francisco in a fog and gale.  The "Blade" was deliberately run ashore  on the Mexican coast, and it was always  believed the first officer was hired by the  opposition line lo wreck the ship. The  rest were hulks that under careful inspection would not have been permitted to  go to sea. Is the northern rush going to  be enough to enable the owners of a score  more of old coffius to collect their insurance at the expense of only a few hundred  lives?   Result Not Known.  A. JM. Johnson, counsel for Woods the  condemned murderer, has not received  any word as to the result of the application for a new trial which was heard by  the full court at Victoria this week. Just  who Woods is remains as much in doubt  as ever. At the trial he claimed to have  come from Gait, Ontario. Upon the  strength of this the Gait Reporter endeavored to trace Woods' people The  only clew which the Gait paper could get  was the story of an old resident of the  town, who stated that some years ago  there lived a family in Puslinch, about  four miles from Gait, named Wood. One  of them was a young fellow called Jim,  whom be last saw some ten years ago  or perhaps longer, at Portage la Prarie.  He was a ,vild, haruni scarum youth, was  compelled to leave Portage la Prarie on  account of some scrape he got into.  Another Phase of British Discipline.  PoiiTSMor'TH, I'hig., Aug. 17. -There is  great excitement here over a most extraordinary state of affairs on board the  British battleship Royal Sovereign, which  is about to sail for three years' service  with the Mediterranean squadron. The  relations between several of the officers  and the seamen are actually strained.  The latter declare that they are suffering  from a variety of very serious grievances,  among which, and especially objectionable, is the deferring of the usual leave.  Fifty 'men have deserted. All the cells  on board ship are full and the supply of  irons is not sufficient for the large number  undergoing punishment.  How they Love One Another.  The Colonist: We state on the authority of the premier, the Hon. J. II. Turner,  that he has not contemplated a reorganization of the ministry, and is not now  contemplating it: that the utmost harmony and confidence prevails between  the several members of the government,  and that there is not, nor has there ever  been, the slightest basis of any kind whatever for the statement that premier Turner contemplated a reorganization of the  cabinet. We hope this authoritative announcement will settle the matter once  and I'or all.  They Regulate the Sale of Milk and Bread and  Require Certain Standards.  The'passing of the by-laws regulating  the sale of milk and bread was the chief  business transacted by the city council at-  its regular meeting Monday evening. All  'members of the council were present save  aldermen Dow and Fletcher. c'  There   were  three comnmuicatiqnxd> .:__  fore  the  board.   The first of tliese ,.was  from the legal firm of Macdonald _. John-  sou, asserting ownership, on behalf of the  Hospital society, of the pipe from thecity  main   to   the    hospital,   and    protesting  against  private connections being made  with  the samel'   The  Hospital  society's  solicitors requested that  the corporation  recognize the society's ownership  of the  pipe, and that the corporation treat the  society as ordinary consumers of  water  and charge the regular rates.   The reply  of    water   commissioner   Sealey  to   this  communication was to the effect that the  corporation  would  not recognize a dual  ownership in  the waterworks system of  thecity, nor did the corporation propose  to   charge   the   Hospital    society    water  rates.  The second communication was from H.  R. Cameron, who wished the council to  give.him a permit to erect a frame building on Baker street, within the fire limits.  As the council has not the power to grant  any such permit, Mr. Cameron was notified to that effect.  L. H. Davick had an application before  the council, asking i'or a situation as civil  engineer. The applicant has been employed for some time in the oilice of A. IL  Hodgins.    The application was filed.  Alderman Hillyer gave notice that he  would introduce a by-law at the next  meeting of the council for the purpose of  limiting the number of saloon licenses  granted in the city. It is likely that the  council will limit the number to the present holders of saloon licenses.  Alderman-Teetzel introduced a by-law  regulating the weight and sale of bread.  It was put through its various stages and  received its third reading.  Alderman Malone introduced a by-law  regulating the sale of milk. It also received its third reading.  Formal notices to reconsider were made  in connection with both.by-laws.  The following accounts were passed:  James Allen, waterworks   M. Kelly, waterworks   )). _Iuir, waterworks,....

A short session of the city council was  held on Wednesday afternoon which was  attended by mayor Houston and aldermen Hillyer, Malone and Teetzel.  The by-laws regulating the sale of milk  and bread were reconsidered and finally  passed.  On motion of alderman Teetzel, seconded by alderman Hillyer, the council  decided to build a flume to connect with  the one lately built for the purpose of  supplying the residents on Observatory,  Hoover and Latimer streets with water.  The work will be done by day's labor under the foremanship of Jacob Serson.  .Mayor Houston was authorized to purchase the materials.  Water commissioner Sealey was instructed by the council to collect the water rates as stipulated in the Waterworks  By-law, No. 10, 1 SOT, commencing on August 1st.

ScVTUKDAV .UOttiVINU   AUGUS'T 21.  1SU7  The protracted weakness of the silver  market is causing the mine owners ot the  Slocan much uneasiness, and if no improvement takes place within the next  few weeks operations in the Slocan will  be very much curtailed. In the Slocan it  is not so much a question as to whether  or not the mines can work at a profit.  Many of them can work with silver at HO  cents, but so long as there is any chance  for an advance the mine owners do not  feel inclined to market ,their product at  present. With respect to the probabilities of the market" every one is as much  in doubt as ever. No one can account for  the unprecedented decline and speculations as to the immediate future are merely  guesses. The Hall mines will be hit rather  hard by the decline. Silver forms two-  thirds of the value of the Silver King ore,  and as the run of the mine as it comes to  the smelter is a rather low grade article,  the difference in the market price of the  white metal may mean the difference between a reasonable profit upon the company's operations aud a loss. Assuming  that the Silver King ore runs 20 ounces  . silver to the ton. a drop of four cents  means a great deal to the company. Lt is  now treating over 200 tons, but on the  basis of 200 tons per clay the loss would  amount to $100 per day. In the Aiues-  worth district the decline will be felt  more than in any section of Southern  Kootenay. This summer several new  companies were induced to operate silver  properties in the old camp, and in most  cases they were making good headway.  Had silver maintained its own Ainsworth  would have had the best year in its history, but as matters stand it looks as if  the old camp will have to drop back again  for a while and resume its waiting policy.  The Nelson Economist does not like  the idea of the city council paying mayor  Houston a salary of $2,000 per annum. It  is not likely that the members of the city  council thought that they would please  every resident of the city when they decided to pay the chief magistrate a salary  of $100.00 per month. They no doubt considered that the services rendered by the  mayor were worth that amount and for  this reason alone it was paid. The people of Nelson decided the question' as to  who should be mayor of the city some  months before the editor of the Economist arrived in the city. When the next  election comes around the new-comer may  be the king-maker and fix his salary, but  for the present the king has been chosen  and his salary fixed. The action of the  present council does not bind "those which  succeed it in any way. Jf the next council finds that the city lias not as good a  man for mayor as John Houston was its  members can cut down the salary to any  figure they please. The present council  has adopted the very good policy of paying one man sufficient to give the city's  interests his constant attention, and in  order to do this the aldermen refused to  vote even nominal salaries to themselves.  Erom the tone of the Economist's comment it is evident that the editor does  not appreciate the value of the services  rendered by.mayor Houston. Thecouncil  by their action, evidently do. It therefore comes down to a question of opinion  between one man, who can have but a  superficial knowledge, aud six men who  have tin  intimate knowledge of  the ser  vices rendered- by the mayor.    The odds  are rather against the editor of the lieon-  | omisf..    Ho'may be correct, but so far he  ; ha^ advanced nothing  save an   opinion,  i and.    as    everyone    knows,    newspaper  opinion sometimes changes.  The decision of attorney-general Me-  Renna as to the interpretation of the  clause in the new United States tariff  wliich deals with the imposition of tin additional duty of 10 per cent on foreign  goods entering the United States through  a contiguous country, means a great deal  to the Canadian railways. It wi'll mean  that .Canadian roads cannot secure any of  the haul on foreign goods destined for the  United .States. It matters not how the operation of ^uch a ruling would effect the  Canadian railways. The United States  has the right to impose the additional tax,  and in coming to any decision upon the  'question, the interests of Canada and of  Canadian railways will receive no consideration whatever. It remains to be seen  just what action the Canadian parliament  will take. It cannot be--expected that  Canadians will continue to be badgered  by such hostile legislation without resenting tiie same. Up to the present the  Canadian parliament has shown a wonderful degree of patience, but this cannot  be expected to continue-againsteach fresh  cause for annoyance. When the United  St.ites government commences to legislate  against Canadian railways at the instance  of their American competitors, it should  not be difficult to induce the Canadian  parliament to look after the smelting interests of this portion of the dominion,  and see to it that no advantage which  legitimately belongs to this province is  allowed to be absorbed by the state of  Washington. When the parliament of  Canada makes a national issue out of this  smelter question, the opinions -of Canadians who have doubts as to the location  of the .!)th parallel will notcut very much  figure.   It is generally admitted that William  Tern pie man is the favorite in the race for  the oflice of lieutenant-governor' of this  province. His appointment to the oflice  would be regarded with satisfaction by  almost everyone in this province save  those who have designs upon the oflice  themselves. Templeman Is deserving of  the job. He has worked hard for his  party for several years, long before liberalism became popular in British Columbia, and has sacrificed his own interests  on more than one ocension. What is  more, Templeman is a clean politician. It  would be profitable for Laurier to go on  record by rewarding such a virtue.  The World's Production of Gold.  Mr. Preston, director of, the United  States mint, estimates the gold production for the year I .!)(> to have been $205-  000,000, of which the United States contributed $53,000,000. For 1801 it is believed  the world's gold production will reach at  at least $2-10,000,000, an increase of $35,-  000,000 over 1800. Mr. Preston says: "As  an indication of the increase in the world's  gold product for 1807, the following table,  showing the product of the United States,  Australia, South Africa, .Russia, Mexico,  British India ancl Canada for .1S00, and  the probable output of these countries for  ISO? is given  1_)G.  1SII7.

Work on the Crow's Nest road is beiug  pushed forward as rapidly as 'possible.  There are over fifty outfits, employing  :_)00 men, at work on the first hundred  miles. Bridging has been commenced and  about four miles of track laid. A temporary yard has been laid out ut Lethbridge.  Work litis beeu commenced on the erection nf the station and office buildings at  Macleod. As soon as the necessary lumber is received, building will be commenced on the storehouses and magazines  at Wardner, B.C., and Sand Creek, B. C.  An outfit is at work building a construction road through the mountains to enable implements and supplies to get into  the mountain, camps. As soon as frost  sets iu rock work will be commenced in  earnest, and bridging will be pursued vigorously from both sides of the mountains.  Eight parties are locating and revising  the line west of the summit. Grading  will be finished well up to the summit by  December 1, and by that time the line will  be in running order to Crow's Nest lake.  It is expected that for rapidity and  amount of construction the work will ben  record breaker.    The Mississippi and Its Flow.  The Mississippi river may well be called  "Tiie Father of Waters." It has an average flow of 0(51,000'cubic feet per second,  ���lohu Birkenbine gives the drainage area  of the great river as 1.250,000 square miles,  which includes most of the country between the Kockies and the Alleghenies.  He estimates that one inch of rain falling  evenly over that surface would equal 21,-  780,000,000,000 gallons of water. The average yearly fall in the 'Mississippi watershed is from 21 to 18 inches. Erom that  one can see that'it will be possible in the  future to establish som-e rather extensive  irrigation projects in that valley, when it  becomes so densely peopled that there  will be a necessity for having two blades  of grass grow where only one now grows.

Inasmuch as Saugttinecti's clients are restricted almost exclusively to members oi  the British aristocracy, titled ami untitled, it is improbable that tiie matter  will go much further, ami it may be taken  i'or granted that the usurer has merely  taken this lirst step oi' causing the arrest  oi Lady Sykes with the object oi compelling her millionaire husband, Sir Tatton Sykes, to depart from liis uublicly  announced resolve to decline any further  responsibility for her financial transactions. Sir Tatton has already taken step,  to secure a judical separation from her,  mainly with the object of emphas-ing this  lact. Ho would do far better were he To  place Lady Sykes under restraint as a  lunatic.  Lady Sykes, without a vestige of doubt,  i.s irresponsible mentally for her conduct.  Her eccentricity verges on insanity, and  it is betraying no conlidence to assert that'  any oddness which she ma.y have inherited from the (Ja vendish-Benlinck family,  to which she belongs, has been considerably aggiavatcd by intemperance. She  no longer has any sense of the value of  either jewelry, money or financial engagements.  The memorable episode of her pressing  the  acceptance  of.her. magnificent diamonds on the JN'eVv York hackman,  who  was driving her home after a dinner at,  which she-had  been .entertained too: ho.-'  pitably  by some of the .New  York   four  hundred,'  was   followed ��� almost   lmiri.di-  ately afterwards iu   England  by a queer  incident in connection with the sale of the  famous   racehorse   La   Fleche,     at     the j  auctioning...off-  of   the stables of  baron  'Hirsch and colonel North.  Sir Tatton Sykes had commissioned lord  ��� Marcus���l__resford to buy the mare tit a  fixed price, but subsequently lady Sykes,  in a moment of effusion, gave lord'Marcus  carte blanche. Ou the .strength of this  lord -Marcus bought the horse at some  $17,000 above the price named by"sir Tattoo, who declined to honor the engagement or recognize, the validity of his  wife's contract, intimating that she had  not beeu responsible for her actions when  she gave her instructions to lord Marcus.  The latter, finding himself with an  $80,000 horse on his hands, proceeded to  sue sir Tjitton, who eventually compromised tiie affair, but immediately afterwards published in the Loudon newspapers au advertisement to the effect that  he would no longer be responsible for his  wife's financial undertakings.  Lady Sykes is the daughter of the late  George Cavendish Bentinck, who was one  ot the pillars of the tory party, and himself a grandson of the third duke of Portland.-, Lady-'Sykes' mother, Mrs. Cavendish Bentinck. was for years one of the  most powerful and influential leaders of  London society. By reason of her stately  and commanding person, by the imperious bnWquerie of her manner, by the  brilliancy of her costume and by the prodigious quantity of the jewelery with  which she was wont to adorn herself, she  used to go by the name of "Britannia."  No party was complete unless graced  by her, and wherever she went her figure,  her voice and her wit rose superior to  everything around. There are hundreds  of people now prominent in English  society who are indebted to her i'or her  introduction thereto, and who will doubtless at the present moment show their  gratitude by being the loudest in their  denunciations of her erratic daughter.  The Sykes are au old Yorkshire family  of Cumberland origin, which first came  into prominence in the reign of king  James !., when Richard .Sykes was lord of  the manor of Leeds, as well as mayor of  that city.  Infinitely better known than the present head of the house, sir Tatton Sykes,  who is an elderly man over 71 years of  age, ancl considerably older than his  wife, is his younger brother, Christopher  Sykes, who may be described as the tame  cat of Malborough house. He' is one of  the most popular men in London society,  and the prince and princess of Wales  have no more devoted friend, no more  constant courtier and no more indefatigable Amphitryon tl.au this tall, well-mannered and well-bred Yorkshireman. Indeed, his whole existence is devoted to  anticipating their every wish and desire.  His country house at Br���iitiiigham and  his- town house at Mayfair are ever at the  disposal of his royal patron, and when the  good Christopher receives a.n intimation  from the prince that he will dine with  him and that ho expects to meet certain  guests, any previous engagement is cancelled, and the banquet, big or small, is  prepared forth witli.  Possibly by the mandate of royalty he  is still unmarried. He hasp, large fortune,  which may account for his apparent air  of curious surprise at the .trouble which  so many of his fellow-creatures extend  upon the serious business of existence,  llis bearing indeed is that of chronic inability to comprehend why anyone should  take life in earnest.  Lady Sykes' appearance in the police  court merely serves to call atteutiou'once  more to the growing number of similar  episodes in the existence of women prominent in English society. This is partly  attributable to the growth of luxury, due  to the invasion of the London great world  by the noveanx riches, who set the pace  tit too hot a rate, aud partly to the inability of women of fu-hion to realize beforehand (he inevitable consequi. ices' of their  aci.-i and speeches.  Two Eiigli.-di women of title are at the  present moment' working out sentences  for forgeries, the criminality of wliich  they never realized when they utcered  them, and scores of other equally blue-  blooded women have been sued i'n the  past ten month, for protested notes, their  attitude in court, showin . their surprise  that they should be expected, either by  the tribunal or bv their creditor to take  any account of the engagement to which  they had subscribed their name.  Indeed, the records of the civil and  criminal court in England the past two or  three years constitute a powerful argument in the hands of those foes to the  women's rights and women's emancipation platform, who declare that the fair  sex cannot justly be judged by the same  standards as men.���-Marquise de Fonte-  noy, in the Chicago liecoid.

C, SATURDAY, A IKUJST ;i1;  IS. 7.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  A man, giving tiie uttme of li. Ferguson,  was charged before mtigistr. te C..a.r-e on  Monday witli, indecently assaulting- two  little girls named Ai;.title .McLaughlin and  Mary .'jMsi .lonka.    J^ui-gti-on  enticed    the  ��� girls into a cabin below cue general hospital, in which the alleged assault took  place. Ferguson wa.s com in it ted i'or trial.  It took three officers; to arrest the prisoner.  ���' and a second charge ol* resisting arrest  was laid against; him. l'pon this charge  he was sentenced to one month's'imprisonment. The city will v.lic .'eiore be put  to the expense of paying llie prisoner's  transportation to Kamloops. Ferguson  is supposed to be a fictitious name, the  prisoner's real name being Dow.  Alice \\'illi.s. who was shot last wcok by  ' S. V. Swyny, died at 7> o'clock Tuesday..  The immediate cause of death was paralysis of the intestine*, which set in Sunday  morning. The body was shipped to Aus-  , tin, Texas, where the mother and sister of  the deceased reside. The deceased made  a will after the shooting, leaving all her  property to her mother. From a post  mortom made by the medical attendants,  it was found that the bullet had cut the  ipieeti in two, and that there wa.s,no possibility of tiie victims recovery. .  W. 0. Nichol, who for a short time wa.s  editor of the Kaslo Kootenaian, passed  through Nelson on Thursday on his way  to the coast. Water says that ho conk!  not remain on the Kootenaian because  the patrons of the paper insisted upon  his conducting an American newspaper  upon Canadian soil. Mayor Green and  one or itvii others were all right upon the  ��� quesuou, but many of the business men  of Kaslo threatened to withdraw their  support if the ultra-Canadian tone of the  paper wa.s not changed. To the ordinary,  mind the thought would suggest itself  that the newspaper which has not sufficient courage to withstand the bulido/.iug  of alien advertisers, should refrain from  discussing Canadian issues.  On Wednesday moruiug a cottage at  the head of Stanley street, belonging to  George Jones, took fire. Mrs. Jones was  away getting water when the fire broke  out, and when she returned the fire had  gained such headway that she could not  save even a sum of money which was kept  in the house. When the membersof the lire  company reached the scene of the lire the  cottage had been reduced to a heap of  glowing embers. The fire left Jones and  his wife absolutely without anything save  the clothes they stood in.  Arthur Locke, a vagrant with a very  abusive tongue, was sentenced to two  months' imprisonment by magistrate  Crease Friday morning. Locke lias the  cut of a man who abuses women, tie  created a stir in court by calling his  brother's wife vile names.  O. G. Dennis, the new gold commissioner for Southern Kootenay. brought  his washing down from Kaslo this week  and took charge of the government offices  in this city. John Keen has been appointed to succeed .Dennis as government  assessor. Keen is a good man and may be  expected to discharge the duties of assessor satisfactorily. He will continue to  discharge the duties of mining recorder.  J. J. Young, of the Calgary Herald, who  recently published a lengthy criticism  upon the local management of the Hall  Mines, played an important part in the  recent Calgary gold brick swindle by  which G. C. McGregor, of the Molson's  bank at Calgary was done out of $11,000.  McGregor first heard of the man with the  brick to sell and commissioned J. I. Young  to negotiate the deal by which McGregor  was to lose his money.  George .V. Brown has ceased to breathe  war against the fire limits by-law. He  'has secured a cancellation of the lease  upon the Baker street lot, and disposed  of his lumber to W. P. Robinson. lie will  continue to reside in the city.  J. H. Bowes has declined to pay the tax  levied by the city council upon lawyers.  By by-law No. .. a tax of $12..0 was imposed upon every person carrying on business in the city as a barrister or solicitor.  A summons will be issued against Bowes  for breach of the by-law. As the legislature has given the municipality power to  impose the tax, it is difficult to see how  the payment of the same can be evaded.  Sanitary.inspector Wolley is at Slocan  City investigating the cause of an epidemic of typhoid fever which has broken  out"iii that place. It is said that there  have been several deaths in Slocan City  from this cause during the past week.  Acting government agent Goepel and  superintendent Hussey held an investigation at Sandon on Monday into the several charges preferred against provincial  constable Hamilton.

One United States editor is soliciting signatures to a petition I'or an export duty  for the purpose of enabling a United  States smelter man to cinch the mine  owners of Trail Creek, and a second  United States editor is circulating a petition for the purpose of securing to a  United States mining company the privilege of exporting their ore to an  American smelter for treatment, without  the payment of an export duty. Bigelow  is now at work drawing up a memorial to  United States residents of West Kootenay, requesting them to give Canadians a  chance to say something with respect to  the drafting of necessary legislation for  the government of Canada.  D. W. McVicar this week commenced  cleaning up on the Nelson Hydraulic  ground on 'Forty-nine creek, and expects  to have the clean up completed in six-  weeks.
