Already Completed or Under Construction and  Steamboat   Lines   in   Operation   Make   the  Mining   Camps   and   Towns   in   Kootenay   Accessible   the   Year   Round.  SECOND  YRAR-NO.  NELSON,   BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,  FEBRUARY  J7,   I.8.M.,  ONE   DOLLAR A YEAR.  REDISTRIBUTION  BROUGHT  DOWN.  .,.;  THE    MAINLAND   GETS    NINETEEN    AND  THE   ISLAND  FOURTEEN  MEMBERS.  West Kootenay Divided into Two Ridings,  Each Getting a Member The North Biding a "Hive."  By private telegrams received 1'i'oui Victoria it i.s I can Hid that tlie redistribution  bill iiiis been introductcd in tlie assembly,  and that the mainland gets nineteen members against fourteen for the island. West  Kootenay is given two members, but the  district i.s divided into ridings. The north,  or Kevelstoko riding, takes in all tlie territory north of the 50th parallel to a point  on   tlie   summit   of   the   divide between  Slocan   and    Upper  Arrow lakes,   thence  the    dividing    line    runs   northeast    to  Houser   lake,     thence    to    tlie    eastern  boundary of    West    Kootenay    district.  .Definitely   described,   the   north    riding  takes in   Revelstoke,  Revelstoko Station,  Illecillewaet,    Big  Bend,   flail's Landing,  Thomson's   .Landing,   Nakusp,    Lard eau,  Trout Lake City, and tlie northern   part  of  the Duncan   Kivor country;   and   the  south   riding.

The north riding is a '"hive," and contains  less than -100 voters.   The south riding i.s  an electoral district,in   which   is   loca.ted  developed   mines,   growing   towns,    and  over S00 independent voters.  taking the  census returns of  1890. - The  census returns of 1800 gave Hast and AVest  Kootenay a   population  of a,  little over  8000. yet the two Kootenays have today a  population of at least S(XX), and a voting  strength equal to'that of many districts  of twice the population.   The increase in  population in West Kootenay is made apparent by the increase in provincial revenue, an increase shown by no other district.    If the government was disposed to  be fair in apportioning representation to  the different sections of the province, it  would  not take population alone as the  basis on  which  to  make the apportionment.   The representation of incorporated  cities," like    Victoria,   Vancouver,    New  Westminster,   and    Nanaimo,   could    be  based   on   population   without   injustice  being done either of them : that of rural  districts,   like   New   Westminster,  Cow-  iehan, and Victoria, could also be based on  population    and    voting   strength:   but  sparsely   populated   districts,  like  Yale,  Lillooet, Cariboo, Cassiar, East Kootenay,  and West Kootenay, should be given representation   according   to   their   voting  strength,  area,  and amount of revenue  paid the province.  THE   ENGLISH   CRITICISED.  A   WAGON   ROAD   COMMITTEE  It is settled that representation under  the redistribution bill is to be based on  population, and that the census of 1S0O is  to furnish the data. The coast cities and  districts, whose population is largely  made up of children''who have no legal  capacity, are given full representation  for their nonentities: each child in Arau-  couver or Victoria is to count for as much  as each free miner in West Kootenay.  The .medicine would not be so bitter for  our people to take if it were offered without excuses for the offering; but when it  is offered with sugar-coating excuses by  'that"*qttack" pl'acoitioher, the' Vau'couvor"  World, it is a nauseous'dose. The World  says:  "That   West  Kootenay   has   a  strong  claim for additional representation inthe  legislature cannot  be doubted.    In . that  section of the'province the development  which  i.s   taking   place demands  at  the  hands of the government the most earnest  consideration   iu   the  apportionment  of  members   under   the   redistribution   bill  which   is   to  be   introduced  next  week.  That the voting power of that.portion of  the Vale electoral district is much greater  now than'it was three years ago does not  admit of argument; but as the basis upon  ���which  the forthcon ing measure is to be  .framed is the  population of each  district  in   the province���that   is,   the Dominion  electoral'districts---and as the Kootenays  form a portion of the Vale district, showing a population of ol05 out of a total of  13,o'01, it will be observed that a 'difficulty  at once presents itself in the matter of acceding to the demand so urgently being  pressed upon the executive  for an additional   representative.   The   district   of  West Kootenay is a large one, extending  from tlie international boundary northwards lo the limits of the province.    No  one can forecast  what is  likely  to take  place within its bounds during  the  next  few years.    If the progress made in  the  development of  the country during the  past two years can be accepted  as even  an approximate of what may  be looked  for  iu  the  next  four,   then  indeed will  Kootenay��� East as well as West--become  the most populous and important section  in British Columbia.    Not only will additional   membership    be    demanded,   but  liberal   expenditures- must   be   made   in  road-making, the erection of public buildings, wharves anil the like.    The revenue  to be derived from the district  will  be a  large one,-and  the expenditure  therein,  upon the lines we have indicated, must be  in   keeping therewith.    Kootenay's prosperity means the prosperity of the entire  province,   and    the   powers   that   be   no  doubt will see to it that the material  interests of that coming Kl Dorado will be  taken care of.    Again  we say  that this  territory,   which   last   year  contributed  about $77,000 to the  treasury^ is yet only  in its infancy, but its possibilities are such  that they may safely be said to be illimitable, anil   this being so the government,  we hope, will exercise the greatest prudence in   allocating  the representatives,  and arranging the constituencies in such  a manner that in the case of West Kootenay, area, resources, and population will  be considered.    If these are kept in view,  as we hope they Avill be, justice  will   be  done to the most promising section today  on the American continent.    Failing that,  provision  should  be   made in  the forth-  coining changes in the constitution of the  province for such tin increased  representation as will   be considered fairly satisfactory."  By this week's TltiurNK it will be seen  thai' 1120 names have been posted for registration on the voter's list of the Nelson  polling division of West Kootenay electoral district. It is reported that nearly  200 additional names have been posted at  Kevelstoke. The claim that West Kootenay has 1200 qualified voters is therefore  made good. But it seems that voters will  not count iu apportioning representation  to the different electoral districts. Population alone will count, and the only way  that the population can benrrivedat is by  Makes a Report that Should be Followed Up  toy Actual Work.  At a meeting held in New Denver on  February 4th, the undersigned were appointed ti committee to investigate the  condition of tlie wagon road between  New Denver and Tnree Forks, and to  communicate with the government and  the owners of the Now Denver townsite,  with a view to securing uninterrupted  traffic over the road during the spring  and summer of 180-1. The committee finds  that if the road is left till winter breaks  up in its present condition, all traffic will  be suspended for a longer or shorter time,  depending on the rapidity with which repairs are made.  About  one  mile from   Three   Forks a  snowslide has come down which has filled  up the bed of Carpenter Creek,  and has  broken  down the bridge at that point.  At a point near the second railroad camp  the road i.s filled  with mud and dirt, and  as soon as the snow melts must be cleaned  out.    The temporary bridge put in at the  box canyoii by  the railroad contractors  will be swept away as soon as the creek  begins to rise, and must be replaced by a  bridtre 0 to 8 feet higher.    The road must  also be widened at the canyon, to do which  will.require, some rock work.    When snow  melts,   tlie   new road out round  a mud  slide about one mile from New Denver  will become impassable, and the track of  the old road must be cleaned out and kept  in repair.   Between that point and New  Denver   the   road   is   only the roughest  kind of a sleigh road,  and grading must  be clone before it will be suitable for wheel  traffic.    Ilepairs at. these points do not by  any means represent all that must be done  to the road to make it a good and serviceable wagon road; but if these  places are  attended to in time traffic need never be  wholly suspended while more extensive  permanent'improvements are being made.  But if traffic is not to be suspended  the  repairs already indicated must be made  at once. : '  The committee invites tlie cooperation  of the townsite owners and of the citizens  to secure that money will be forthcoming  to put in these repairs, and to obtain from  the government a guarantee that any  sums so expended will be refunded out of  any appropriation for tlie putting of the  New Denver wagon road in good repair.  The committee, after investigation, and  after hearing the opinions of those qualified to judge, considers that a sum of not  less than $2500 will be necessary to make  a good permanent wagon road between  New Denver and Three Forks. And it  urges upon the citizens and others who  are interested in the townsite the necessity of bringing pressure to bear upon tlie  government to secure this appropriation.  D. B. Boo 1,13,  C.  W. Avi.win,  C. .M Guruino.  New Denver, February 10th, 1801.  Why Englishmen are  Disliked  by Canadians  and Americans.  The following is taken from a Winnipeg  paper   of   recent   date,   and   voices   the  opinion  of  many Canadians and Americans.    But is the criticism  altogether a  fair one?   Thk Trihuxh believes it i.s not.  While  too   many   Englishmen,   by their  supercilious   airs    and    behavior,    make  themselves disliked  in America, yet America owes much to the rugged honesty,  sturdy independence, and untiring energy  of Englishmen.   It is true that the latter-  day English  emigrant is  different  from  the English emigrant who made the old  settled sections of America habitable and  productive.   Tlie  Englishmen   who came  to America, whether to Canada or to the  Uidted States, in the early days, came to  make themselves homes; the Englishmen  who come to America now come to accumulate wealth, in order to return and live  as they would   like  to live  in   England.  The former brought along  with  him his  peculiarities and his prejudices, as do the  latter;   but   the  former,   in time,  threw  them off; and the latter, in time, will do  the   same���if   they    stay    long   enough.  The   criticism    of'    the     Winnipeg    paper   can   be   applied   to   Eastern   Canadians���although   iu    a   more   restricted  sense���as well as to Englishmen.    When  they first come west, the average Eastern  Canadian  has peculiarities  that are distasteful  to   western   people.    They   find  more or less fault with the manners of the  people and the social conditions that prevail; and who  has ever met an  Eastern  Canadian that would admit that the products of the west were the equal of the  products  of the  section from whence he  came?   The western men and women are  not cultivated as are the eastern men and  women: the western men and women are  lacking   in  dignity; are   too   outspoken.  The products of the farm, the orchard,  and the garden have not the flavor or the  excellence of  the products of the east.  In fact, there is nothing as good  in the  west as in the east.    But unlike the emigrants from England, tlie emigrants from  the east soon become westernized, and iu  a few years become as uncultured, as undignified, and as outspoken as  the oldest  old-timer of the west.   When they undergo the hardships incident to our civilization, and  are  given .to understand  that  they must take a back seat in local politics,  the sensible Englishman will be found to  be a pretty good average citizen, whether  he be a resident of Manitoba or of British  Columbia.   The   English   snob,  like  the  Canadian snob .or the American snob, is  unworthy   of criticism.     The  Winnipeg  paper says:  '���Sometimes we cannot help wondering  why so many Englishmen live 'in this  country���Englishmen who do neither good  to themselves nor to us, we mean. They  came here, so they say. because they grew  tired of their land, and yet they begin to  abuse Canada as soon as they set foot on  her soil. Nothing suits them, because  nothing is "like Old England;" yet they  left England because they wanted some  "IMPERFECTLY   MONOGAMOUS."  Dinner and Concert.

We tolerate them and  make excuses  for them,   listen  to  their  grumblings and try to make thing pleasant   for   them,   but   sometimes   we   get  heartily sick and tired of them and wish  they would go back to their own country  and leave us to live as we please in ours.  Our eastern trees are not large enough to  please them; our western prairies are not  as  they  would   have'made   them.     Our  society (and  they sneer contemptuously  when they mention it) is not what they  have been accustomed to.    We are not educated (nobody is educated out of  England, according to them); we don't know  how to dress; we have'never heard good  music; our homes are not built to please  them; our railway carriages are not exclusive;   our  hotels   are   different   from  those they- have been used to; our horse  races do not come up to those at Ascot:  our national game is not like theirs; we  pronounce   our   words   too   flat���we   do  everything to offend their ideas of what  is proper, and they do not hesitate to tell  us so.    It would  be useless to argue with  them, or to tell  them of the great differences   between  the   characteristics of a  people brought up in a small island that  for hundreds of years has had every advantage of civilization and those of a people living on a great continent, the northwestern portion of which dates its settlement   back   only  ten   years,   but  whose  wondrous strides has been the wonder of  the wise men of every nation upon earth.  That class of Englishmen  cannot argue;  their natures are too bounded; so we let  them say what they please, but mentally  wonder.', why  they stay here, and  think  how  much.better our country would be  withoutthem."  Building an Ore-House.  New Denver Prospoctor. 10th: "N. F.  McNaught is having an ore-house constructed at the wharf at Silverton for the  purpose of storing ore from the Alpha  until the completion of the Nakusp <x-  Slocan railway to the head of the lake.  The building is to be 1(X) feet long by 15  feet wide. A contract has been let to  Cameron brothers to haul 500 tons of ore  from the mine to the ore-house at Silver-  ton. The Alpha, which was thought to  be a great proposition at the time of its  purchase, is now looking better than ever.  For 00 feet the ledge lias been stiipped  and shows an average width of II feet of  clean ore. Mr. NcNa tight has ordered  wire from Seattle with which to build a  temporary tramway to the mine."  Silver Market.  Bar silver closed at (i-'lA cents tin otitic'*  at New York yesterday.  As a Rule, are Married Men "Stupidly", Faithful to Their Wives?  It is one of the  keen  remarks of  Mr.  Howells that the  male sex, after  many  ages of civilization, is still but imperfectly  monogamous.   This allusion   to the taste  for variety in the  masculine heart  is, ic  will be observed, very guardedly stated:  to possess ti quality "'but imperfectly" at  least implies that one has something of it.  If we look below the sarcasms of the keenest   Frenchmen,   or of   their most obsequious   London   imitators,   it is yet admitted (writes T.  W.  Uigginson in  Harper's Bazar) that while the more conspicuous and "smarter" circles of society are  courageously and nobly polygamous, yet  there  is a  vast and   perhaps despicable  bourgeois circle among  which, as a rule,  one man is stupidly faithful  to one  woman, and she to him.    Even Oscar Wilde  or Andrew   Lang   would  admit, though  with pitying superiority, so much as that.  Among that class of common   people, all  the world over, whom Abraham Lincoln  thought that the Lord must love  lather  more than the more aesthetic circles, since  he had made so many more of them, the  commonplace and  humdrum   relation of  monogamy i.s the  rule and not the exception.    Jean   Paul   Richter finely says,   in  his  "Levana," that while  multitudes of  abnormal cases around   us  tempt us  to  think thtit the whole sexual relation  is a  source of evil and of snare to mankind,  yet   '"the   majority   of   healthy   living-  voices" testify to the contrary, and show  the world's heart to be sound.  Nothing shows more profoundly the  real strength of the monoganiic instinct  than to test it in cases where everything  seems likely to weaken it���that is'where  very early marriages, mutual ignorance,  the absence of any opportunity for a  strong or deep attachment at the outset,  might seem to place the whole marriage  relation on its very weakest ground. That  very interestingand enlightened Oriental.  Pro bap Chundar Mozoomdar, whocamo to  this country for the Parliament of Religions, bore most notable testimony on this  point. In the striking biographical sketch  of him by the Rev.:S. J. Barrows, prefixed  to his ': Heart-beats,* he describes liis marriage with all its Hindoo formalities. He  was then eighteen, and was regarded by  Jus;mother as.having remained a bachelor  quite too long. His wife was but eleven,  and quite unlettered, like'other Hindoo  girls of that period. "I had but glimpses  of her," he says, "once or twice before:  but directly the ceremonies were completed I. was over head and ears in love  with her." From that time, he adds,  "thirty-three years ago, down to this day,  I have cherished my dear wife as if 1 had  selected her from thechoisest womanhood  of the'world; and my affection, true as it  is, is but a. pale, poor shadow beside-the  fadeless love and increasing service with  which she has blest my solitary life.' li  all the women of the world were to pass  before me, I would choose my de-w wife  above them all. And every added year of  my life confirms' me in this feeling."  There is no mistaking a testimony like  this. It tells its own story. How idle beside this is the so-called ''love" of the  French novel or Swinburne description���a  devouring'flanie today and dead ashes tomorrow! And if this testimony comes  from a region where women are, or were,  chattels or toys, where the marriages  were made by others, and the heart had  no voice in this selection, it is-impossible  not to believe it more true in freer and  more mature marriage connections.  It is a curious tribute to marriage that  in these very French novels, where the  love 'making is almost wholly among married people, the 'types painted by the  author as noblest are quite sure to be  found among those husbands and wives  who love one another and are free from  stain. The most exalted artist or-physician���these being the two classes among  whom a French novelist finds men worth  admiring ���keeps' himself wholly above  those despicable intrigues of the gutter in  which his inferior rivals delight. lie and  his wife are usually noble, lovable, and  unworldly and they have felicities which  only authors can bestow unerringly upon  their favorites, for they always have  beautiful and healthful children. Examples of this type are to be found, for  instance, in Zola's art novel. "L'(Euvre,"  and in Daudet's "L'linmortel." No Frenchman has played so recklessly with the  wanderings of passion as City de Maupassant; and no one has paid a tribute so  superb to eternal and unfaltering constancy as he has given in that sketch to  which alone he gives the supreme title.  ''Happiness" ("Le Bonheur,") in which he  describes himself as finding iu a rude hut  in the loneliest part of Corsica tin aged  man and woman who have dwelt there  for fifty years ever since they eloped together, a common soldier and the daughter of his colonel, iu their earliest youth.  She gave up everything that luxury and  admiration could yield, and buried herself in solitude witii this son of a peasant:  she became a peasant herself; her husband is now eighty-two, and wholly deaf:  and when ti visitor from the very home of  her youth, whose presence revives all her  early associations, asks her, "Have you at  least been happy?" she answers." with  heart-felt tones, "Oh! yes, very happy,  lie has made me very happy. I have  never had anything to 'regret." These are  the touches of high nobleness which one  finds in the higher class of French novelists, tin; men with a purpose, like De .Maupassant and Zola, ami which redeem many  of (heir sins. Their English imitators  copy the vice and tlie effeminacy, but not  the nobler side. All the accumulated novelists, iu the English tongue have not, for  instance, heaped such  relentless and ac  cumulated retribution upon the parents  of illegitimate children as De Maupassant  has done in story after story.  The records of police courts are  full  of  instances  to   show    that    even    among  abandoned criminals  there are   frequent  eases of life-long  devotion  between   men  and women of  the lowest type,   perhaps  brutal in   their treatment of each  other,  and yet making  through  lives of crime  great mutual sacrifices.    Just as in   the  old times of slavery, the slaves who had  set themselves  free would go back  into  danger to release a husband or a wife, so  among criminals those  who have escaped  from   prison  will   sometimes   haunt  the  very prison   walls at every personal  risk  to bring away some one nob even  bound  to  them  by  legal   marriage,  but simply  held by the tenacious ha.bit of affection.  Not only will a woman do this for a man,  but  men���which   is,  alas!  more remarkable���have  repeatedly  done  it for some  women.    Together  they   seem, perhaps,  like ill-yoked,  quarreling   brutes;   separated they are  like  tiger and  tigress  till  they meet again.    It is nature's tribute to  the principle of monogamy, the, crowning  instinct of the human race.    Lord Byron,  brilliant, beautiful, and unscrupulous as  his own Don Juan, left  behind   him the  maxim that there   was   but one real form  of happiness  in love���where a man and  woman so adored  each  other that they  could conceive of no happiness out of each  other's   sight, .and   this for their whole  -lives.     Grant that  this is   to demand   a  great deal, yet it is true that all   the  influences of long life combine to  ideutify  two who dwell together; their very faces  often   grow   more   alike;   and   how   frequently   the   death   of   one  is   followed  speedily, without sufficient visible reason,  by that of the other also!

The Money Value  of  Silver  in  Prance, Italy,  Belgium and Switzerland.  At the monetary treaty of Paris of December 2.':ird, 1805, France. Belgium, Switz-  reland, and Italy entered  into a   mutual  agreement concerning the monetary and  coinage policy, which took  effect August  1st,   1800.    That association   of states   is  called the Latin Union.    Greece and Ron-,  mania came into the association in April,'  1807.   The high contracting parties bound  themselves not to  coin, or  permit to be  coined, any gold other than   in  pieces of  100.'.50. 20, 10;. and: 5 francs,_and silver, in,  pieces of 5, 2, audi  franc, and 50 and  20  centimes.   All silver coins  of less value  than 5 francs are legal tender between individuals of the state in  which they are  issued to the sum of 50  francs.    The  nation issuing them  shall   receive  them  in  any'amount.    The public  banks of each  of the four countries first named will receive the silver coins of less  value  than  five francs to the sum of 100 francs in payment   to   said   banks.    Each  of the contracting govern men ts must receive  from  banks or individuals the small coins they  have issued, and return the equivalent in  gold coin   or in  silver 5-franc pieces, provided the sum presented be not less than  100 francs.   This obligation  extends two  years beyond the expiration of the treaty.  The high contracting parties agreed not  to issue a, greater amount of the 2 and 1  franc and 50 and 20 centime  pieces  than  six    francs     to    each   inhabitant.     The  amount thus  fixed  for 'Belgium was 32,-  000,(K)() francs, for France 2'39,000,000 francs,  for   Italy   M 1.000,000 francs,   for Switzerland 17,000,000 francs.  The agreement was  to remain in force till January'1st,   1880,  and   if not repealed   a year  before  that  time  was to  remain in   force for  an additional period of fifteen years (till January 1st. 1895).    Conferences of the Union  were held   in  1875,  1870, 1877, and 1878, at  which the agreements was amended so as  to permit the .suspension of free  coinage  of silver.    The conference held in 1878 renewed   the monetary   treaty "in all that  relates to fineness, weight, denomination,  and currency of their gold and silver coin.  ���Article 0 of the new treaty guarantees to  each state free coinage of gold (excepting  gold 5-franc pieces, of which the  coinage  is suspended), and provides that the "coinage of silver 5-franc pieces is provisionally  suspended." but "it may be resumed when  a   unanimous   agreement   to   that  effect-  shall he established  between   all the contracting stales."   The treaty is  in   force  by its terms till January 1st. I8!)(i.   In view  oi' the foregoing  facts,  and   the   further  fact that France holds more than 2.5(H),-  000.000  francs   in  silver, coin   within   her  borders, it is not unlikely that at the expiration of the agreement,  Italy, ("recce.  Belgium. Switzerland, and Koumaiiia will  be   unable to redeem   in   gold  or  o-frane  silver pieces their respective issues of the  small silver coins.    A   franc is equivalent  to about   10 cents and  is divided into I(X)  centimes.  The Freddy Lee Mine.  The following should have appeared in  the descriptive article on Slocan district  in last week's Tmiu'.vi-:, but although  mailed at Kaslo on the 0th instant it did  not reach this office until the Kith:  Tin; h'reddy   Lee was the first mine  in  Slocan district to ship ore.    Six carloads  were shipped   via   New   Denver and   the  Columbia river before the sleigh road was  completed to Three Forks in the winter of  1802.    For the past, few months tin,'mine  has    been     leased   to   .Messrs.   Goldstein.  Flaherty.    Fitzwillinnis,    and    Crowley.  108 tons.    Under I'o'r-  wlien   being  operated  ce   .Mining   Company.  shipped.    The present  Lt will be remembered that there was a  good deal of rivalry, in, the early part of  last summer, between   the  promoters of  the several townsites in the Lardeau and  Duncan Itiver sections of West Kootenay,  and that more or  less  wire pulling was  done   to   get   the   government agent  to  spend money on trails leading to the several   townsites.   The   government   trail,  built in 1891. from the head of Kootenay  lake to Trout lake was in bad repair, and  the promoters of the townsite  of Lardo  not only  wanted   it   repaired,   but  they  wanted a branch trail built from the main  trail to the foot of Houser or Duncan lake,  so as to divert the trade of the   Duncan  River   country to  their   townsite.     The  branch trail would be some seven miles in  length, and the first mile from  the main  trail   was   over   swampy   ground   which  would have to be corduroyed.    It is understood the promoters of tlie Lardo town-  site agreed   to  pay  half  the expense of  building the branch trail, and. iu addition,  agreed to pay the men 50 cents a flay per  man, so as to make their wages #3 a day,  the government rate being only $2.50'a  day.    A foreman and a gang of men were  sent up from Nelson and   Kaslo to do the  work, that is, repair the Trout Lake trail  and build the branch trail.   The foreman  employed   was   John   Sanderson,   a  man  well-known   to   the   government   agent.  When the Trout Lake trail was  repaired  up   to the point  where the branch trail  was to diverge. Sanderson set two gangs  at work on the branch  trail, in  order to  get the corduroying done  as soon as possible.    One gang- was in charge of "Jack"  Eldridge and the other in charge of \V. .M.  Glover, Sanderson himself taking charge  of the work of continuing repairs on tho  main or Trout Lake trail.    On 'completing  that work lie returned to the branch trail,  and found that two of the .promoters -of- -  the Lardo townsite had viewed the .work  and reported that the Eldridge gang had  not worked as faithfully as they should  have; that they had  not done as much  work as the Glover gang.    The Eldridge  gang was laid off, and on account of the  report made, the men were only paid for  the time they worked on  the main trail,  and to this day are unable to get any satisfaction from the government agent, who  tells  them, so they say, that they must,  look to Sanderson for their pay.   Mr. Sanderson forwarded-his version of the transaction to the government at Victoria in  December last, and  is  prepared to back  that statement up by preferring charges  of malfeasance in office against the government -agent.    If the charge is made, it  should be promptly investigated by  tlie  government, for if it be a groundless one,  tlie government agent is entitled to a certificate of character:   if   it   be  true,   the  people are entitled to an honest official.  A  STATKMKXT-IIV  O.VK OK THK  MKN.  Alexander McDonald, one of the men who worked on  the trail I wenty-scven days, says tlmt he and others of  the men who have not lieen paid worked several clays on  the main trail before going to work on llie brunch trail.  That the men in Kldridges giua; worked as williiij,'lv and  as hard as men usually do on government work, and thai,  the "kiek"about, tlie men loallnjf was made because of  one of the men boiiiy "boozy" on the day that Mes.-rs.  Hetiillaek and Henley happened along, and the man's  time being allowed for that day. One of the men. Tom  Hennessey, furnished his own tools, that is. an augur,  saw. and adze. The timber available was small and  knotty, and rapid progress could not be made on that account. The men understood that the owners of the  townsite of Lardo were to pay them ;V) cents a day. the  government paying the remaining V2.M a day. .Mr. McDonald asked for his time and was told by Mr. .Sanderson  thai he could get it at, llie government ol'tice. but on calling at the latter place ho was told that he would have to  look to Mr. Sanderson for his pay. lieforc work was  commenced on the branch trail. Sandersiiu had charge of  tin-men who wen- working iu front, and Kldridgc acted  as foreman over the men who were working behind.

Lardeau City   Trout Lake City ���  Fire Valley   Nakusp   Robson    Trail   It is ii well-known fact that all application--to purchase or preempt laud within  the limits of mineral belts have boon refused,---unless the applicant or preeniptor  iniil  a "pull" til, the land ol'lice.    The land  may or  l<s of   < -iirpenler creek  That the  .land   department  of   British  Columbia has long been run in the   interest of a "ring" of  favorites is generally  admitted.    When unfair practices are attempted, the unfairness is always in the  interest of men close to some member of  the government.    On the 5th instant .Mr.  Vernon, chief'commissioner of lands and  ���works, introduced a bill entitled "An act  '." to authorize the issue of a crown  grant  '~"'-"Of certain lauds iu tlie district of Ivoot-  " enay, being the site of the town of Three  "Porks."   If the site of the town of Three  Forks was not owned by the promoters of  the Nakusp Ac Slocan railway the bill introduced by Mr. Vernon  would not have  been introduced, for the government was  never known to take extraordinary  steps  to procure-title for persons applying for  land unless the'parties so applying were  its particular cronies.  Now for  the facts   in   this   particular  case:   The land is situate at the  forks of  Carpenter creek,  in Slocan mining division.    The land is known -as mineral, and  a number of claims  were located .and recorded in its immediate neighborhood in  ISOI and .1802, the Grey  Eagle,  Geologist,  Jay    Bird,    Porcupine,   and   Sara   Jane  being among the number; but like many  another tract of "mineral" land in Slocan  district, it was first applied for.under the  purchase clause of tlie   Land   Act.    The  first   applicant   was   John   A.   Watson,  whose application to purchase was dated  October 20th, ISOI.    JMr.   Watson wanted  820 acres.    He failed to cause his notice to  be printed in  The   Gazette,  although   it  appeared  in  The Miner of Nelson.     The  next applicant for the hind was  fCli Carpenter, one of the original discoverers of  the district.    His notice   was  dated  January :5th,' 1S.'2.    He also wanted .'!20 acres.  His notice was printed in  both The .Miner  and The'Gazette, but before he made application   a   reserve   had  been   placed on  all the hind within ten miles of Slocan lake.  That is   how Mr. Carpenter's  application  was   knocked  out.    On June    l-lth.    IS:)2.  Charles   llugonin and  Kric  C.   Carpenter  preempted the land   for agricultural purposes, although it is  well known that the  land   i.s  unfit   for   such   purposes.    They  lived on the land   that .summer as  hotel-  keepers.    In the winter of IS02-'' the land  was held down   by  II. II. Pitts,  who had  leased   llugonin   and   Carpenter's   hotel.  In   the  spring of .IN''*' llugonin and Carpenter returned, built another hotel in a  different locality, and started the present  town of Three Forks.    "���'���ttl.yiii   the summer of I SO'j the report was circulated that  llugonin and Carpenter had sold their interest in the land   to Frank   S.   Barnard  and  John  Andrew  Mara.    llugonin  and  Carpenter made application for a- crown  grant, but the owner of  the  Kara, Jane  mineral  claim  filed   <*i  protest,   basing it  on the ground that   he located   the Kara  Jane on May '31st, IS!)2, several days prior  to the date of  llugonin and   Carpenter's  preemption record.  If tlie bill introduced by Mr. Vernon becomes law, it will only be necessary hereafter for Messrs. Barnard and Marti, when  they purchase land with defective title,  to get a. pliant commissioner of lands and  works to introduce and pass a bill crown  at t lie lor  may not, contain valuable deposits of  mineral, but it is certainly within a mineral belt, and the owners of mineral  claims there, as long as they comply with  the provisions of the Mineral Act. niiisb  he protected iu their rights, yea, oven if  one of the townsite speculations of Mara,  Barnard Ac Company should end in failure. If these worthies were less hoggish,  they would purchase the rights of the  mineral claim owners, and by doing so  save the government from the odious  charge of passing pernicious legislation.  If Charles llugonin and Kric C. Carpenter were entitled to record a preemption  tit the forks of Carpenter creek, why  should they bo compelled, in order to secure title, to sell it. a,I a nominal figure, to  Frank K. Barnard and John Andrew  Mara? If K. It. Hamilton located a mineral claim on unoccupied hind at tho forks  of Carpenter creek, on May .'31st. 1802. why  should he not bo permitted to acquire  title to it as did the men who located  mineral claims :it the mouth of Kiindon  creek in the same year? The chances tire  the claims at the mouth of Sandon creek  tire no more valuable for the minerals  they contain than the claims at the forks  of Carpenter creek; and the chances tire  that they were taken up for the same purpose, that is. to be sold as town lots.  Many mineral claims are taken up for that  purpose, for the reason that title to the  land can be act pi i red in no other way.  The government i.s none the loser, and  the parties who take up the land  are not always winners. The question,  then, is simply: Why should the government deny one man what it readily grants  another; and why should it be eternally  mixed up in disreputable transactions  it bout hind, and always in the interest of  the same gang?  THE   VOTERS'   LIST.  Names that are Either Registered or Posted  for Registration.  The following is a complete list of the  names appearing on either the register  of voters I'or the electorial district of  Kootenay or on the posted list. Parties  sending in names should be careful to send  in no mime appearing below, by doing so  duplications will bea,voided. Kvery name  sent in will appear in Tin-: TRinr.xio. The  following names were entered on  posteil list at Nelson this week:  the  Heroism of an Elevator Boy.  He was a Chicago elevator boy.    Probably, like other elevator boys, he-jerked  his rope and stopped tlie elevator a  foot  from the sill, chewed, read  a dime novel,  scared   passengers   by   his   headlong descents and filled their bosoms  with pericardia! pangs by rising like an unchained  balloon.    His elevator was'probably always iit the sixth story when you were on  tlie first and the reverse, and on these occasions he probably  treated the;'passengers'   bell  as ii tintinnabulatory obligate)  which required several  encores to satisfy  the  performer.    .Most  elevator  boys are  part of this.    He, being a Chicago elevator  boy,   was  probably ail  of it and   more.  Friday his six-story building caught lire  in   its   mid-stories.    The   staircases   were  flame and smoke.    Red-tongues were playing   about   the   netting   of the elevator  shafts.    Tlie fire escapes 'opened on burning   windows.    In   tlie   fiery  furnanee a  score of men and women were imprisoned.  Four   times   up 'through, the  (lame and  smoke Charles K. Hoyer shot his elevator.  Tlie   cable   heated    till   it   blistered    his  hands.   The woodwork of the shaft  was  on fire.    Kaeh trip as  he went up   for his  living freight he passed out of sight into  the smoke, and once he left his  elevator,  and bore back to ic two women overcome  with the  foul air.    More  fortunate  than  Jim  Bludso,   who -'held   her  nozzle  agin  ���the bank till the last galoot was ashore,"  the elevator boy escaped with his life and  saved all for whom he risked death.    The  world is full of such heroes.   They are all  about us, in elevators, on locomotive footboards, on car platforms, at the loom, the  anvil,   and   the   spade.     No man   knows  them.    They are as other men.    But there  is   in    this     Knglish-speaking    race   that  which    flames   to   heroism   when  danger  tiears, and there are thousands of unconscious heroes who   read   these  lines who.  if death  were   to cull   the   roll   before tonight,     would    unhesitatingly     answer,  "ilere!"  Honeymoon Defined.  An Knglish paper has been having a  competition of definitions of ���'honeymoon." and prints the best of them. It i.s  sad to observe (he cynical spirit in which  most of these arc framed, as I'or example:  "A Duet Not Necessarily a Harmony,"  "A Curtain Kaiser," "A Poetical Preface  to a Volume of Prose," "Cupid's Last Carnival." "The Mirages at the Kntrancc of  Matrimony," "Arcadia I'nited." "Commences will) Illusion. Knds in Disillusion."  ���'The Lull Be-fore the.Storm." Out of a  long list, the only two definitions conceived in a genial spirit were, "A Preliminary Canter," and still better, "Sweetness sii if I Light I'or Two."  Men Dressmakers Popular.  A woman bent on getting at the secret  of  the popularity of men dressmakers--  and ( hey are popular - says thti.t one never  hits to contend with their personality.  A woniiiii dressiua|<or who i.s stout or thin,  or light or dark, can not efface herself  sufficiently. The only hope of gelling  proper things from n woman is to patronize one id' your own girth. A ma u, on I he  contrary, studies you from your own  standpoint. Kenli/.ing his perfect disinterestedness, women are more amenable  to his sugge.sl ions, and are not irritated  by being told that they must wear this or  that because il is Hie fashion.

The two p;is-eii-  gv.vs \vmILiiiLT tit tilt! little station passed  tip.and down the wooden platform, now  and then stopping to tra/.e impatiently  down llie muddy road and then at tin  sun. which wax fast sinking in the west.  One ol* the passengers was a young girl,  pretty and self-possessed, nlthotitdi. perhaps, a trifle nervous in her manner. Slic  shivered slightly as (he eool evening air  blew in her face, and turned towards her  partner in misfortune, who. from his  drexs, might be either a���' elegyimui or a  profession ill gambler. As if in answer to  something he saw in her face, he raised  his hat and came forward.  ������Something is evidently wrong." lie  said, letting his bold, black eyes rest on  her face until her own fell and a warm  blush rose to shame his impudence.  ���'High waterat the ford, I dare say."  She   lifted   her   eyes anxiously.    "But  they'll go through." she said, almost  imploringly.    "'Oh, J. must get to Angel's tonight."  **.Oh, certainly,' he answered, confidently. "They're sure to go through.  See. liere it comes now." And lie turned  and walked to the other end of the  .station.  The lady looked once more 'flown the  road, but this time .with a sigh of relief,  and her hand went unconsciously to the  heavy leather belt which confined her  waist. Five thousand dollars in gold were  concealed in that belt, and in the small  grip she carried were, cheeks and paper  money amounting to the sum of .$20.(100.  All VVells-Fargo treasure going to the  mines at; Angel's Camp.  Only the last week the stage had been  held up and the agent badly shot, while  the robbers escaped with their booty.  This had been the third serious loss inside  of two months, and the company vowed  to outwit the spoilers. So they put their  heads together and the outcome of their  scheming was that Hose Maynard. the injured agent's sweetheart, stood waiting  for the stage with $2.").00() in her keeping.  Wet with the water of the ford, with  horses dripping with foam. Dandy Jim  drove up to the station, and at last the  stage was in.  There were live passengers- two miners,  a natty young man  with   a leathern case,  cvidciilly  a, drummer, an   Irish   woman, '  and ti Chinaman.    Looking tired and cross, j  they hurried   to  the supper-room,   while]  I land v ���Hiii defended slowly from his lol'tv  scal, "  ������������Dole busied." he said, laconically, to  the hostler. "Wight leader lost a'shoe."  then strolled slowly to the bar.  Hut before he reached it a light touch  was laid on his arm, and he turned quickly  to look down into a pair of soft brown  eyes, and Hose Alaynnrd said sweetly:  ������'.May I ride with you, Jim?- the box seat,  you know, and she smiled significantly as  she handed him a bit of yellow paper.  '���Well, I'll be blowed!'" said ,)iin, "el' it  ain't Miss Hose. Hide with me? Why.  bless yer heart, of course yer kin."  "Thank you,"said Hose, and giving him  ii smile that made his head spin, she  turned away.  Jim stood stock still and gazed after  her. ' "Hide with ine," he muttered.  ** Well, you bet she kin. She's a daisy,  and no_ mistake. Hope Jack won't be  jealous," and he broke into a loud guffaw,  which he as instantly checked, and  hurried in the barroom.  More he vend the note Hose had given  him. then, lighting it at a taper, lie  watched it burn until it fell to tho ground.  "Note from Jack Sterling," he said,  coolly.    "No treasure going   up  tonighl ;  arm still bothers him," and. turning to  took ii]i his glass of "whiskey straight,"  he found himself face to face with tlie  man who had accosted Hose in the .station.  As he saw Jim, he said: "Are you the  driver?"  "That's  what."   answered Jim.   "Any-  ,thin' you want, of me?"  "Only to tell you that you'll have my  company up to Angel's tonight, as I've  bought the box-seat,"and he drew a ticket  from his pocket and handed it to Jim,  who set down his glass and made a pro-  tense of examining it closely, then, with a  broad wink at the bartender, handed it  back.  "Sorry I can't oblige you." he said, leaning lazily against the counter, "but that  seat hez alluz belonged lo a pal o' mine,  the Wells-Dargo agent, who ivnz shot Ia.st  trip. K'/. he can't go up this time I've  promised  it to another friend of mine."  "Hub I've bought it," said the other impatiently.  "Who of? \il' I might ask," inquired Jim  innocently.  "The company, of course," answered  the man.    "Come, don't be a, fool."  ��� I ins crossed one foot over the other and  calmly surveyed the irate one.  " Whether I be or be not a fool, young  feller," he said, "is none o' yer bizness.  Hut I'll tell yer this, when the kenipany  wants the.jobof drivitf this blasted stage,  they kin hev it and welcome, and give  away their box-seats lev who they darn  please. Hut, when I'm a-drivin' I'm boss.  Besides," he went; on, "you wouldn't bike  it from ji lady as wants ter see the moonlight?"  "Oh, if it's ;i, lady, I'm satisfied." said  the other, and turning on his heel lie left  i he room.  The twenty minutes for supper were  soon over, the new pole was in. the fresh  horses stood impatiently tossing their  heads and the guard called out: "All  aboard!"  Tile passengers came hurrying- from  their supper. Jim helped Hose to her  -eat-, whispering as he lifted her up.  "Shove the bag inter the boot, honey,"  then swung himself up beside her.  'The whip cracked, the hostler sprang  aside from tlie horses heads, the guard  jumped on behind and, wiih a jolt and  jar, the stage was off with forty minutes"  time to make. But no one noticed that,  its they entered the coach, the tall,, dark  man whispered to the 'drummer. "Keep  your eye on the girl, George," lie said.  "She's our game."  Tlie sun had long since set, -and the  beautiful California night set with bril-.  liant stars and spread over the land.  Rose felt her courage rise as she clung to  the swaying coach and watched the gallant leaders'gallop bravely on over the  road, which looked like a silver ribbon in  the moonlight.  Nine o'clock by the driver's watch as  they slowed up a, little, seven miles from  Angel's. Dandy Jim pointed with his  whi]i to where the road curved sharply  around the side of the mountain, the high  rocky wall rising a. thousand feet on one  side and sloping abruptly down on the  other.  "Thet," said the driver, "is the identical  spot what- poor Jack war shot. Lord ! but  it war lively here. We wu/. riding as you  and J be, when all of a sudden he tell agin  me. 'I'm hit, Jim,' he said. 'Look out  for Bose. old fellar." Then, I tell you, we  hustled.' Lord!"  Hose shuddered and (lulled herbeltinore  securely. "Do you think there's tiny  danger?"she asked.  signal, and in another moment some one  had seized her from behind and taken the  weapon from her.  "Come.'' said the first man. "I don't  want to hurt you. Ihuid over the cash.  I'll not touch you; but I've got to have it."  Hose clutched her belt still tighter.  Looking into his lace she saw that although reckless and dissipated, he was  above his companions, and. with a, woman's instinct, she spoke:  "Sir," she said, bravely, "I'm in your  power. I know. Of course, you can take  the money if you wish. I am defenseless.  But I undertook to take that money  through, and will not give it up without  a, struggle. Play a game of poker with  me for the booty. If you lose. I am tree;  if I. lose, take the money: give me this  chance. If you will not, shoot me as yon  did poor Jack; I will not disgrace him,"  and she clasped Tier hands tightly, looking eagerly into his face.  Perhaps it was the novelty of the situation, or may be the soft beauty of the face  lifted to his. At any rate, some chord of  chivalry above his present position lurked  in his heart, and was touched by her  words, for, lifting his hat, the outlaw replied courteously. "Certainly, madame,  if you will honor me.'"  They seated themselves in silence on  the ground, and the man quickly shuffled  and dealt the cards which he drew from  his pocket. Hose's hand tiembledslightly,  but with an iron will she forced back her  nervousness, discarded and asked for  three cards in a steady voice.  It was a strange scene, the plunging  horses, the overturned coach, the frightened passengers, and the two seated at  that strange game. The moon, bright  and cold, lent her light, shining on Hose's  uncovered head, with its golden hair, and  on (he dark lace of her opponent.  For a moment every sound was hushed���  even the Irish dame ceased her bawling to  await with breathless interest the result.  BLACK   AND   WHITE.  * Hie  ss   you.   no  !"  he answeied  cheer-  luiiy. "Everybody knows that Jack ain't  weli yit, and they wouldn't risk the treasure 'here tonight. We'll .make the curve  in.double time," and, cracking his whip,  he called to the horses, who once more  started on their lively pace.  Hose drew back as they rattled along  and watched the shadows on either side  of t he -road a, little fearfully. Suddenly  she grasped her companion's arm.  "What's that?" she exclaimed, breathlessly.  But she received no answer. There was  a flash, a sharp report, and she felt the  driver fall heavily against her. The  leaders retired wildly, falling against each  other, and with a sudden jolt tho coach  fell on its side.  Shrieks and moans filled the air. The  Irish wo..inn broke into loud wailing, with  cries of "intirther" interspereed here and  there. The Chinaman hiy unconscious,  stunned by his fall, the drummer, with a  revolver in each hand, had covered the  sleeping miners, and the guard was lying  on his back with all the tumbled luggage  on his chest.  Two men had darted from the underbrush and fired the shots that struck poor  Jim. and they wove now quieting the  horses. Hose, who had regained her feet  unhurt, felt some one grasp her belt.  Turning, she faced the man who had been  her fellow passenger at the station.  With an unnatural strength born of  despair, she wrenched herself free, and  her assaulter was looking into the gleaming barrels of Jim's Smith Ac Wesson.  "Lot me alone!" she panted, her eyes  gleaming cruelly, "or, by heaven, I'll  shoot you for Jack !"  The   robber   laughed   and   made   some  With ii,  look,   half   regret,   tho outlaw I  laid   down   his  cards.    "Three  aces," he I  said slowly,  and looked curiously at the i  girl, half'deciding to divide with her, she  had borne herself so bravely.    Hut there  was no need.   -Witha little smile she, too,  showed her cards.    "Aces are  high," she  said, "but this trip deuces win," and there  on tlie ground lay the four deuces.  "It is yours," he said calmly; then spoke  a few words to his com pan ions.-, who  grumbled .somewhat, but submitted to  his stronger will.  The coach was righted and the luggage  put back in place. Dandy Jim, stiii unconscious, was laid inside on the straw.'  The passengers, trembling and pale, took  their places, and. the outlaw turned once  more to Rose.  "Dare you drive?" he asked.  "Yres."she answered, bravely, "I will."  Gravely and courteously, he lifted her  to the seat and handed her-the reins, then,  half-hesitatingiy held out his hand. Bose  instantly gave him hers. *T will not betray you," she said, softly, "and the others  dare not.*"  "Thank you," ho replied.  Then, impatient to be off, the leaders  sprang forward, and the coach was on its  way once more. '  Fifty minutes later .Hose drove her  foaming horses up the narrow street of  Angel's-Camp, two minutes ahead of time.  Kissing the Blarney Stone by Proxy.  Some time since one of the brightest  and wittiest of Cincinnati girls went  abroad, and when she returned home,  about the lirst person to congratulate her  upon her safe return  was B , a  young  blood of the city whose dollars exceeded  his sense in the ratio of about a million to  one.  "Aw, .Miss V," he said, "permit me to  greet you, 1 know you ha ve had a vevy  pleasant trip abroad."  "Ves," she answered, "very pleasant indeed. I was .all over the continent, and  through Kngland, Scotland, and Ireland."  "Ah, in Ireland, and did you see the  Blarney stone?"  "Ves, I was there."  "Oh. I should so delight to see it. It  has always been a desire of mine to kiss  that famous stone, but I never had the  opportunity."  "Indeed, then you should go there."  "I know, but I have not done so: but  why shouldn't I kiss it by proxy? You  have been there and kissed it, why should  I not take the influence of the Blariic.v  froin your lips?" And the smart, aleek  stepped forwiird to proxify the young  lady. But she stepped back and looking  him squarely iu the face said "I bog pardon,   my dear  Mr.   B -. but I sal,  upon  the  Blarney stone."    Like a  man with a  great sorrow. H  sank down in a heap.  ami he hasn't said   "Ireland" since,  and  the very word "Blarney" makes him d<- i  lirious. __ j  Light Weights.

I  The   Combination  Which   Forms   the  Pad  the  Day in Toilettes.  Ill the sanctuaries of  those tabernacles  dedicated to the manufacture of toilettes  of the rich,  there  is  a-  turmoil   over  the  black-and-white combination.    Not only  i.s it the fad among the great mass of people in the eastern cities, but even the best-  dressed women are ordering extravagant  creations in the magpie combination.    It  sooms iis if the designers must have nearly  reached the end  of their rope, and it is a  fact that now   ideas   in   black  and   white  iire worth money in   the  most exclusive  houses.  In he studios of one of these higlit  priestesses of fashion iu New York City,  the madame said her head fairly whirled  and ached from dreaming of black and  white. Then .she showed some of her  creations in this combination.  The first was a dinner gown.    It was an  unusual affair, indeed.    Theskirt was cut  with sufficient dip behind to make quite a  demi-train and was made of extra width  moire in black.     It was very wide at the  bottom   but   fitted   perfectly around  the  hip.    Just below the knee was one of the  novel features of the #o\vn.   in   the shape  of white silk   fringe,   about  three   inches  wide, put on in scallops.   The line  of the  scallops  was   gradually  lowered   until  it  reached the edge of theskirt behind.    Tho  corsage was of dead   white silk, more like  peau decygne. or swan's skin,   than any  other fabric.    It was tight-fitting and cut  vevy  low on    the shoulders,   and   had   a  basque skirt   which   was put on   at the  waistband,  cut   in   scallops   which  were  edged with  the silk  fringe.    Two  tabs of  the white formed atablieron the fiont of  the  skirt.    This   basque   was    evidently  ahead of time, for instead of the perenni'il  hooks and  eyes it was fastened  in   front  with buttons   covered   with   white  silk.  Several other gowns also showed rich but-  tc)iisv and -probably by another year the  button manufacturers will   be glad   they  are living.    The  top  of the  corsage  was  Jinished   with a   deep  scolloped   piece of  black,   which   was edged with  the fringe.  This was split on the shoulder to show a  Avhite  sleeve     that    was   slashed    from  shoulder  to elbow and .puffed with black  moire,   the   edges   of    the   white    being  finished with" fringe.  A ball gown which -madam said would  be worn at the Patriarchs' ball was of silk  gauze, dead-white as usual, for cream-  white seems to have no part in the black-  and-white fad except in laces. Theskirt  had -a.deeji flounce of the gauze very  thickly plaited, yet not accordion work,  and every foot a thick plait was made to  produce a box plait. This was cut it]) into  a point, and on the underskirt, beneath  each point, was a thick rosette bow,  partly made of ends and partly loops of  black moire ribbon. In the center of each  bow. was ii knot of white lilacs. The corsage was of white moire, laced behind, of  course, with tall after fall, to the number  of at least six, of line plea tings surrounding the top of the low neck. The sleeves  were formed of rows of this pleating also.  The rows of plea Lings were graduated iu  width, the lower one being at least nine  inches wide and the top ones about six.  10 very other tow was black and the alternate white. On the shoulders were rosettes of the black moir ribbon, and white  lilac sprays formed a garniture around  the neck. The rows of pleating forming  the sleeves had tiny lilac blossoms caught  on the edges, like it shower fringe.  A reception gown of white satin was  lifted at the sides slightly to show the  black, and handsomely embroidered in  the new steel black spaitgleaiid bead style  around the edge. 'The pointed waist had  a couple, of basque frills, which were edged  in the same style, only in a narrow design.  The front of the corsage Inula black vest  I-introduced, almost covered with plaited  j white chiffon, and the while satin fronts  ! were embroidered in hull' a fern leaf pattern in black. The sleeves weve of black  s;it in. slashed to let through fine white  plaits of chiffon, and a broad white- satin  collar, spread out to form a cape on the  top of the sleeves.  The idea iu black and white seems to be  either lo combine black with priceless  hices that not every woman can alford. or  else to make intricate ideas which only a.  thorough artist can carry out. In this  way. black and white a re saved from the  charge of cheapness, am I some or the most  costly loiloftcs worn are made up in this  way.'

Whether it'wus because of the Midden decline and lowering tendency of silver, or some other ciiii.su i.s not known.  The only work being done now is by A. Carney on his  right-of-way contract.  A dispensation   for   a, lodge   has   been  granted the Masons resident, at Nelson, and the organization of the lodge is now being considered.  W. A.

Hughes of hit Mountain Chief  mine. New Denver; and William liraden of Helena, representing the ('rant-Omaha smelter of Omaha, were  three of tlie most noted mining men who put in an appearance at Nelson this week.  A correspondent at Maryville. on the  east, side of Kootenay hike, writes: "Maryville is very  quiet, and the weather is very tine. Snow is ten inches  deep in the hush, and on the i">th of January was four  feet deep at the head of La France creek, on the summit  of the I'urcell range. The Hidden Treasure claim, owned  by Albert Barrett and George Piatt, is looking well. The  ore is free milling and assays ,��!l in gold. The ledge was  tapped at a depth of twenty-live feet, and so far only one  wall is in sight, although the ledge hits been crosscut  fifteen feet."  Owing:to the fall in tlio price of silver,  several of the American smelters have refused to purchase Slocan ores unless the mine owners will wait ninety  days for returns. The mine owners, with three or four  exceptions, have decided tosuspend shipments for a time.  Graham   Ac Taylor   have   moved   their  shoe store from the Ivirkup-Matlieson building to the  building lately occupied by I'hillipss restaurant on linker  street.   They sell boots and shoes exclusively.  Captain Fit/.Stllbb.S returned from Victoria on Saturday last, and is apparently in good health  and spirits. He says tlie people of Now Denver are  clamoring for a wharf that would be useless if built, and  thut tho wharf'appropriation had much better be expended in building passable trails and roads to the town.  And the captain is about right.  for centuries. The old belief in the literal  inspiration of the scriptures is now only  held by very narrow minds. No one possessing even a very moderate knowledge  of scientific truth now thinks that tlie  world was made in six days by the special  creative acts of an anthropomorphis Jehovah, or that there was an actual Adam  or a real Garden of liden. The churches  tire admirable social and charitable  institutions'. inspiring a desire for  good and upright lives, elevating the  thouglibs of their members to an  acceptance of the divine order of things,  and inculcating a hope of immortality,  but they are no longer the combative  teachers' of theology and expounders of  creeds that they were in tlie boyhood of  men now arriving at middle age. With  tin; decline of theology, however, there  hits been no advances of ina.teriti.lisin: on  tlie contrary, there is noticeable a distinct weakening, both in scientific materialism and in the pessimitie view of the  universe, which originated in Germany  and obtained great currency a few years  ago. The young men and women of the  present age believe in the dominance of  spirit over matter, and cherish a hope  that the immortality of the human soul  will at no distant time become an accepted  and demonstrable truth.

Ambiguously "Worded.  The greatest complaint against the Mineral Act is that certain of its sections,  more particularly the ones relating to  partnerships, are so worded as to be difficult of construction. The following  amendments to the License Act, brought  in this session by premier Davie, are certainly not so worded as they should be.  If a licensing board has the right to i.ssne  a license why should the power of vetoing  its acts be given a stipendiary magistrate? The licensing board in 'districts  like West Kootenay is a farce anyway,  and the power to grant licenses should be  vested in the government agent alone.  A bill has been introduced  in the legis-  islature to amend the " Licenses Act."    It  provides   that:    "22a.    No   retail   liquor  license, whenever granted, shall be in any  way  transferrable  unless and   until   the  written permission of the authority issuing the license shall   have first been   obtained i'or that purpose.   (I).  The authority shall not give the permission until satisfied,   by  such   evidence  as  may   be   required, that the proposed transfer is a fit  and proper person to be the holder of the  license.    (2).    The word ���authority' in this  section means a licensing-court, a stipendiary magistrate, or the superintendent  of provincial   police, as the case; may be:  .and iu tlie event of the "authority" being  a licensing court, and not in session a I, the  time any   transfer  of  license is desired,  permission of such transfer may be given  liy the superintendent of provincial police,  or  by a  stipendiary  magistrate,   if any  there be residing and having jurisdiction  iu  the district where the licensed  premises are situate: and such permission so to  be   granted    by   tlie   superintendent    of  police or stipendiary magistrate as a foresaid, shall be subject to  be dealt with by  the licensing court when it meets, in such  manner as the court sees  fit.    Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, in districts where there i.s a resident stipendiary  magistrate, who is also government agent  forthedistrict.no  license for the sale of  intoxicating   liquors   by   retail   shall    be  granted  except by the sanction of such  stipendiary magistrate, and such magistrate shall  have   full   power,  I'or  propel"  eatise, to cancel any retail  liquor license  heretofore granted."  Eternal Hell an Exploded Doctrine.  No observer of the signs of the times can  fail to notice tho steady changes going on  in religious thought. Carried along in  spite of themselves on tho great stream  of human progress, the churches have  practically abandoned many things once  considered essential iu their beliefs. No  intelligent preacher now ventures to expound thoold docteine of an eternal hell.  It has been abandoned and relegated to  the rubbish of the past after having  served k>terrify and  torment humanity  Totals :ilS,7.->S     ���Itil.Si'l     72!I.-'2S    1.210.8U3    1.17ii,l7.-i  Let me add that although on the past  two Wednesdays the government of India  has failed to sell any of its council bills,  yet the proposal to levy a duty on silver  bullion imported into India is, I understand, (piite certain of being negatived.  So that, for some months to come, the  steadying influence of the present enormous import of silver bullion into India  will be maintained.  j\l()!{ KTOX  FliEWEX.  London, .January 1-lth, 18!M.  A Minox'ity Government.  .Much of the time of the legislature was  taken up one day last week  in discussing  the accuracy of a return made by the government to the governor-general regarding the voting strength of the government  and its opponents, at the provincial election in IS90.   The opponents of the government contended  that the government  members were returned by a minority of  the   total   vote,   while   the   government  members contended that they had a majority of the total vote cast.    As a matter  of fact, the government was in bad odor  iu I8SJ0, and it was returned to power by a  minority   vote,  it being easily done because of the large representation of districts having small  voting strength, districts like Cowichan, Cariboo, andLillooet  for instance.     In the discussion,  it  was  claimed that the votes cast for members  elected as independents, but who are now  acting  with   the government, should  be  counted as having been cast for the government: that the votes cast for Mr. Kellie  in 'West Kootenay should  be so counted.  Mr. Kellie  was elected as an independent  by men who opposed the Robson government, and if Mr. Kellie is in doubt as to  their position  now, let him offer himself  as a government candidate at the coming  election.
