11 ruse to enable the insurgent vessels to

order to make better terms with' the
Peixoto government, as tlie insurgents
are now without hope ol" overthrowing
Till-: Tmi.iwi'. contends that, in bringing in a redistribution bill, the government should consider tlie future growth
of a district as well tis its present condition. The representation given districts
under the bill Co bo brought in this session
will be the rcpre.sonta.tion the districts
will have in the legislative assembly for
the next four years, .-intl perhaps longer.
There are a number of electoral districts,
like    Cowichan.    whose    future    growth
can be accurately ostium tod: but there
are other districts, like West Kootenay.
whose future growth can only be' approximated.
representation  is  given districts ac-
cording to the census returns ol' 1S..0. West
Kootenay will be unfairly treated, for the
population of   West Kootenay iu   I8!)() is
but a fraction of what it is today, and tho
population of today is but a fraction of
what it will be two  years hence.    In  IS.K)
the population of West, Kootenay was not
returned    by   the   census    enumerators,
therefore it can only be guessed at.    Fast,
and West Kootenay had a  population of
.'. 10.')—ha If of the population, it is safe to
say. lived in West Kootenay.    The population of West Kootenay today is not less
than    ■ItlOO,   divided   as   follows:    Nelson
mining division, 1200; Ainswortli  mining
division, lf)0(); Slocan mining division, 800:
Trail   Creek  mining division. I2">: Kovel-
stoke mining division,  1200:  Illecillewaet
mining   division.   100;    Lardeatt    mining
division, 2."), tind Trout Lake mining division,  2*5.    This  estimate does  not  include
the men engaged  in railway construction
iu Slocan and Buvelstoke mining divisions.
The  increase in permanent population
must   of   necessity  keep   pace   with  the
growth of the mining industry—and the
'.population of West  Kootenay is now as
permanent tis that of tiny section of the
province'wholly dependent on mining.   If
the -population , of the district increased
fiwn 1700 in the stiitiine.r-of ,1S!)0 to 5000 jii
f;he whiter of 189*3-1, a period during which
the  mines were   mere p "aspects, what i.s
likely to be the  increase during the next
two years when  the mines are sure to be
worked as'industrial enterprises"-1
The mines of Slocan division alone "will
give employment, within two years, to
not less than 2000 miners and laborers,
whicli means it permanent population of
at least 7000. Other mining divisions will
do as well, in proportion to their paying
"'.mines. Teams now bring between forty
and fifty tons of ore daily to Kaslo-a
tonnage that could be easily shipped from
any one of half a. dozen of the mines, from
which shipments tire being made, lfc._>nly
transportation'.facilities could be liatl:" tis
it is, there is not an idle team in southern*
Kootenay. But as a saving of from $15
to $25 a ton can be made as soon its a'rail-
road is completed to Three Forks or New
Denver, the mine owners of Slocan division are not anxious to ship more ore than
enough to pay running expenses. That
they are doing this, that is. paying expenses, is a certainty. During the four
mouths ending December tflst, 1S.)"J, one
'bank at Nelson alone paid Slocan mine
owners $110,000, as the net proceeds of
their ore shipments. Out of the $110,000
the mine owners laid only to pay the cost of
milling the ore and the cost of hauling it
from the mines to tho steamboat lauding
at Ktislo. the freight, duty, and smelting
charges having boon paid by the smelters.
This goes to show that the country is paying its way. and is no longer dependent on
money brought in from the outside.
No district iu the province is likely, iu
the next i'ew years, to grow as rapidly ,"is
West Kootenay. and from no district is
the province likely to receive tis huge a
revenue. All this, its well as present population and voting strength, should be
taken into consideration in allotting to
West Konteiiay its representation in the
next legislature.
Cleared for Action.
Humors wore in circulation at Xelson on
Tuesday that the insurgent war vessels in
the harbor of Rio Janeiro. Brazil, had
lirod on Anierican war vessels, and that
the latter had cleared for action and .compelled the surrender of the insurgent
licet. The Spokane papers that arrived
on Wednesday night had warlike headlines, but under the headlines the reading
matter was comparatively mild. Shots
from the insurgent ships were falling too
close to the anchorage of three American
merchant vessels, and the American captains asked protection from the admiral
in command of the American fleet. Me
sent word to tlie insurgent admiral that
more care must be used in firing, so that
shots would not damage the vessels or
property of American citizens. The insurgent admiral returned a gruff reply.
The next day the American admiral
cleared his ships for action, and sent word
to the captains of the American vessels
that he was pre pit red to escort them to
tlie wharf, whore they could discharge
cargo. Two backed out, not daring to
take the risk; the third was willing, and
his vessel was escorted to the wharf without the liring of a shot, other than a rifle
shot fired by a marine on board one of
the insurgent ships and two sent in return from the United States cruiser Detroit.    It is thought tin. liring was simply
Men of West Kootenay Should Come to the
Front as Leaders.
If West Kootenay is to take part in
shaping future legislation, there is no
better time than the present for its brainy
men to give expression to their ideas as to
the changes that should be made in the
land.' mining, and railway acts. The
Tiiii.L'xi'. will print all expressions, il'concisely worded. The following were received from a resident of Slocan district:
1. An i:(|iiiLub!c lunri contract between tlie province
iukI the people, (.limiiiiitiiig Ihe (li-'crutimiury powers of
llie kind departinenL, mitt reducing il. simply to iidniini--
tunny tlie lnw.
2. A mil way policy which would not check railway
development hy government, aid. hut would simply cut
out the subsidiary companies and substitute the government for them. Tliu province should not hack promissory notes for speetdat.ive purposes, and strong objection
should he raised against the game of "heads I win tails
you lose" with the taxpayers' money.
."I. The extension of loral nuthorily in local matters.
The legislative assembly at. present is simply a fiction,
its I'unelions having beeii turned over in mass to the departments and to the govcrnor-in-eouneil.
A resident of Nelson mining division
1. A hind law that would give the intending settler
the ri-rhl. to purchase oulright, small tracts of land in the
mountainous soelions of the province.
2. In order to open to settlement arable land within
railway reserves, that all sums realized from the sale
of land within the limits of railway grants be equally
divided between the province aud the railways until .such
time as the land grants are surveyed.
Was Appointed by the Provincial Government.
In another column aTmiU'N'K subscriber
at Trail Creek asks several questions in
regard to the judiciary of the province.
One question is, from   what government
did 0. JI. Sproat receive his appointment
as magistrate.    All government appointments are imperial, in the sense of being
from the crown, but the governor-general
N the only  ollicer in Canada (outside of
naval   tind  military   officers) who  i.s appointed by the queen in  her imperial capacity—that is  to say, on tlie sole advice
of her  Fnglish cabinet.    He is  paid  by
.'Canada.    When British Columbia  was a
crown colony;'the. .principal officers were
appointed   by  the  imperial government,
and   the others by the governor,  subject
to approval  in London.'  Canada, at "confederation,   had   to 'find   either suitable
places or  pensions for crown  colony officers of a certain  rank and  service.    Except,   however, as above, the right of appointment   to  all   offices in  Canada and
'ner.provinces, from and after confederation, vested  in  the governments  of  the
Dominion and the provinces, respectively,
according to the apportionment of powers
conferred by the British North 'America
Act, IS..7.    Mr. Sproat, though an ollicer of.
pro-confederation days, holds his appointment as stipendiary magistrate from the
provincial government.
The Customs Regulations.
Shippers of goods to points in the
United States, or in bond to points in
Canada, should first make outward entry
at the custom house and produce two
copies of a certified invoice of the goods
shipped. If .shipped to points in the
United States, the railway agent at Waneta. should ttlso be given a power of attorney to clear the goods. The same procedure is. necessary in shipping packages
by express. The acting collector of customs at Nelson, on arrival of bonded
freight and express parcels, releases the
goods, so '-Unit there is neither delay at the
depot nor trouble at the custom house.
The United States collector at Northport
is inclined to give trouble. He refuses to
pass express parcels iu bond, shipped
iroin this section, i'or the reason that tho
Northern Pacific Express Company has
not given the bonds required by the
United Suites treasury department, lie
must be mistaken,-'I'or that express company litis long been doing business out of
uoth Winnipeg and Victoria, and it
could not well be doing business out of
two so important cities without having
first complied with the treasury regulations. .        	
Use the Big • D" Openly.
If   iii   olden   days  milady  "'swore her
pretty oath by yea and nay," the modern
da me of fashion, with the frankness of her
world and period, uses the ''big, big I)"
quite openly. Smoking seems to be an
accepted fact among the young married
women belonging to the.smartest set, and
swearing is the latest development. It
is no uncommon thing of late to hear
pretty women use among their intimates
very strong language indeed. Curiously
enough, however, and fortunately, too,
for the general good, these little indulgences are confined to the inner circle,
while to society at large the modern woman of the world is a model of cold propriety. There has grown up iu London--
tind, of course, New Vork litis adopted
this latest innovation—a latitude of
speech and action among the truly initiated of a certain set that is truly appalling
to those who hold the old-fa liioned standard of what a lady may and  may not be.
Rapid Transit of Mails.
J. W. Lowes, manager of the Carpenter
hotel at Three .Forks, was iu Nelson on
Monday, tind reported the arrival of mail
at the Forks that was thirty-one days iu
coming through from Revelstoke. The
mail came down the Columbia to Nakusp,
thence by way of New Denver to Three
Forks, lie also said that there was a
daily stage from Throe Forks to Kaslo
and on three days a week two stages, yet
mails were carried hut three days a week.

Hritish Columbia—Dear .Sir: As 1 wish to emigrate, to
the Hritish Northwest,, you would favor me very mucb
by sending me a few maps and descriptive pamphlets of
your section of country, lotfut.liiT with terms of sale of
railroad land. Is there any land that, can be home-
steaded. Is the land prairie or timber along the Kootenay, Columbia, ami hruser rivers? How is the climate,
and how low is the temperature iu winter. How soon
can plowing be done in the spring.' Can tomatoes, melons, and corn be raised! I want to go to a country that
is good for mixed fanning. Is there a good market for
vegetables, eggs, and butter, and for pork and poultry?
Arc times brisk! Which route i- the best for an cmi-.
grant l.i take from here. Would my cattle be t| uivrn.ii-
tinert al Iho boundary line, and for 1'iow long? Does the
land in your section require irrigation? I'lca-e show this
letter to the editor of Tin-; Ti.nnxi:, and ask liini to mail
me a copy of his paper. .1. \j. I...OWN.
The above letter was handed Til _•_ Tm-
ui:x__., in  the hope that its  editor could
give the information asked for.    As  the
information   may    result  iu bringing  to
British Columbia men who will raise that
which our mining  population  must consume, and thereby keep money at home,.
Tin-; Trimuxk has been tit some trouble toc
got accurate information,    hi British Columbia,   unoccupied    hind    can    only   be
acquired   by  preempting   or  hoinestead-
ing, although  the hnv may be changed at
this session of the  legislature so as to allow direct purchase.   Along the Kootenay,
the land is generally prairie, with timber
on the banks of the river; on the Columbia; the land is nearly all timbered, more
or less heavily; on the Fraser, the laud is
much the same as on the Kootenay.    The
climate   is  not unlike  that  of northern
Idaho.   The winters  last for,  say, from
three to  four  months,  the  temperature
seldom  falling  below  zero.     Plowing   is
usually commenced  iu April.   All  kinds
of vegetables,  and  even  fruits,  are successfully raised in the valleys of all three
of the rivers referred to.   The market i.s
a home one, and  the  prices obtained tire
good,  being as   follows:     Vegetables,  2
cents a pound;   eggs,  oO cents a  dozen:
butter, from -10 cents to 50 cents a pound;
pork, II cents a pound: dressed poultry,
18 cents a pound.   Times are as good as
in any portion  of America, which  is not
saying much.    The best route I'roin northern Idaho to points   in British Columbia,
near either tiie  Kootenay   or Columbia
rivers is by way of  the Nelson  <._   Fort
Sheppard-rail way to Nelson, or by way of
Bonner's Ferry.    To the Fraser river valley, the best route is by way of Kettle
river and the Okanagan country.  Horses,
sheep, and  pigs, and settlers* effects" are
admitted  duty free and  without  delay.
Cattle for breeding purposes are -also 'ad-,
niitted free, but are  qutiratiiiod.    There
tire only two quarantine stitt ions in British
Columbia: one at Osoyoqs and the other
tit Victoria.    Under this regulation, settlers  coming to  the  Kootenay and Columbia  river  valleys  could  not bring in
cattle  without first  obtaining a   permit
front   the   collector   of   customs   at  Nelson.    -Crops   can   be   raised  on  some of
the    bottom    lands    without    irrigation,
but  irrigation   is   necessary   throughout
eastern    British    Columbia.     The    area-
of    land,    suitable    for    cultivation'   on
either of  the three rivers -mentioned, is
limited.     Vet,  in   West Kootenay small
tracts of land can  be obtained  close  to
the best'markets in   the world for   farm
produce, tluit is mining camps and towns.
Questions Answered.
Tumi, ('hi:i:k, January 22u<\. ISM.
To tiik I'-OlTolt or Tiik Tuiiu.ni:: Has West Kootenay district a supremo court, and if so. when was it established? Is judge Walkem a supreme court judge,
and is be allowed lo sit as a county court judge? Who is
county court judge in West Koolenay? Is (i. AT. Sproat
ajudgc, if so. did he receive bis appointment from the
imperial or the provincial government. Is the supreme
court made up of four or live judges?
West Kootenay is not a supreme court
district. Judge Walkem is an associate
justice of the supreme court, and also sits
as county court judge in civil cases. A Vest
Kootenay is not a separate county court
district and has no county court .judge:
judge Spinks of Vale district usually sits
as county court .judge in both Fast and

A dispatch I'roin Montreal says that in
the near future the trolly system of locomotion will be in operation on two sections of the Canadian Pacific railway.
Contracts have been let for the construction of motors, the power to be developed
from the waterfalls in the neighborhood,
and the necessary machinery for this purpose istiiso contracted for. The trolly is

The People of New  Denver Must be  Alert if
Their Town is to be a Mining Center.
Niow  Di'.NV.'.i., January 81st.   .
On Friday last a telegram was received
here to the effect that the townsite dispute was settled.   The feeling in town on
receipt of the news -was one of profound
relief.   The dispute has been the greatest
drawback  against the progress of New
Denver, and now that it is removed there
is no question that tlie town   will justify
its claims to be the center of the Slocan
'-mining division.    At the same time New
Denver has many rivals and   its citizens
tind those who are interested must not let
the glass grow beneath their feet.    It i.-
of the utmost  importance  that uninterrupted communication should be kept up
between Now Deliver and  the  mines  by
wagon road.    As soon as spring comes the
Kaslo road  will be for some time impassable, and if the wagon road between New
, Denver and the mine's is kept in repair it
will be by way of New Denver that everything must go into and come out from the
mines.    And whenever the Nakusp Ac Slocan  railway is completed to the head ol
Slocan lake this route will  afford incomparable advantages over any other.    Further, if this road is kept in good order and
a stage run to the Forks. New Denver will
ot once become the headquarters of every
mining   man   in   the   Slocan.    An   hourV
drive by stage will not in any one's mind
counterbalance   the discomfort of living
in the mountains,  as compared with the
most   beautiful   location   in West Kootenay.   Over this road there i.s bound to be
tin endless traffic of miners, mining men.
and business men which the railway with
its    meagre    service    cannot    overtake.
Such men will make Sew Denver the object point   for amusement and   business.
But if.the road is not kept up this spring
they will be compelled either to stop in
the mountfi-ins and make a town there, or
else  when   the  railway  i.s   completed  to
board the cars and go out of  the country
to Wilson creek or even  further.    What
is   only   too   likely   to   happen   is    thai
nothing will be provided for   until spring
is actually hereand suowslides, landslides,
and floods have destroyed the road.    Then
.people will begin  to''talk'and abuse the
government'after'the ''damage has been
(lone  tind   the  town   has  lost the start,
whereas if they take time by the foreloel.
themselves  they can   most likely secure
;_ie   ail vantage   of   a   good   road    right
through the spring.
For a week the bay at Nakusp has been
frozen over tind all communication by
water cut off. The logic of this is perfectly clear. In a normal winter the
mouth of the Nakusp pass is rendered inaccessible by means of ice. Therefore,
unless a railway is built clear from Bevel-
stoke to Nakusp, this route cannot be depended on for more than nine, or tit most,
ten months in the year. And the inter-'
rtiption will occur just at the time when
the ore traflic 'from.the mines-is likely to
be the heaviest.
The immortal memory of .Robert Burns
was fitly celebrated by a crowd of enthusiastic Scotchmen on the 25th. A supper, at whicli the national dishes were
prominent, opened the proceedings, and
after supper-Scotch songs and recitations,'
toasts and speeches, dances and music,
with abundant libations of Scotch whisky,
kept them going till daybreak. Fveryone

the greatest people on earth, and as there
was nobody to contradict, the greatest

—Can the women, when they become
mothers, nurse their children themselves?
In America it is found that, whereas in
the rural districts from seven-tenths to
nine-tenths of the women can do so, in the
cities the proportion is not more than
one-half; and Dr. Mitchell declares that
he would not be believed if he were to say
how many even of these are unfit to be

The   West   Kootenay   Convention   Is   Opposed
Only by Spoilsmen and Their Friends.
Tlie  West  Kootenay Convention,  notwithstanding all reports to the contrary,
will   be held,  and  the delegates will be
representative men.    A. large majority of
the qualified voters in Nelson, Ainswortli.
Slocan, and Trail mining divisions favor
holding the convention, not only in order
to nominate good men for the legislature,
but  in order to formulate their views in
regard to needed legislation.   The people
of the district desire changes made in the
mining and land laws, and they want to
get  their   representative   men  together,
not only to agree on the changes, but to
select candidates who  will  see that the
changes are made, if within their power.
The people also want to make known their
wishes in regard to legislation that affects
the welfare of the province-nt-Iai'go. They
are tired of the old way of electing men
to the legislature who carry out their own
views, no matter how much they may be
tit variance with the wishes of the people
whom they represent.    The people want
representatives  who  will   do   their   bid-
cling-,   not   representatives  who consider
that within themselves i.s all the wisdom
of the district: not men who will sacrifice
the   interests of the people   for personal
gain: and, above all, not men whose only
aim in seeking ollice is to "feather their
own    nests."     Of   all   men,   the   known
spoilsman, or the man who 'will stand in
and do the bidding of .spoilsmen, should
not be selected to represent the district.
It should be the aim of every voter, first,
to secure for his district its proper representation in the legislature; and, second,
to elect to the legislature none but good
and 'true 'men.

Portage hi Prairie Liberal, January l">th :
"It seems quite certain that although the
district spoken of litis developed wonderfully within the last year, the postal facilities have not improved since the writer of
this tramped from Kaslo.to New Denver,
tind on out to Nakusp. hist June. At that-
time the Slocan people were supposed to
receive a 'mail once a week, or ofteiter,
until the mail contractor, finding the government would not pay a fair price I'or
the service, threw the mail hags oil' his
pack animals, and replaced them with
more profitable merchandise. It is now
proposed to furnish tho New Denver people with n weekly mail by the immensely
roundabout way of Ktislo. instead of having tt tri or semi-weekly service from
Nakusp. about thirty miles away. Verily
the development of the mail service has
not kept pace with the development of
a great silver treasure house in the heart
of the Hookies."
That Portage la, Prairie man is not
posted, or lie would know tluit Nakusp.
during the winter months, is .practically
out off from the rest of the world, except
by way of the Krslo and New Denver
route. The Nakiisp-Rovolstoke route is
not now open, and will not be until early
in April.
American Climate and the Nerves.
As to the comparative effect of the
American climate on the different races of
mankind, it is too early to form tiny very
confident judgment. But this much i.s

than colored. Full-blooded negroes arc
known to be entirely exempt from some
of the worst, tind most prevalent forms of
nervous disease, and* even a slight trace of
color seems to he a safeguard. Tho A nglo-
Sjtxou Americans are the greatest sufferers from the national disease, and
especially those in the higher walks of
life. Females ai:e more under tho inline i ice of t his I orri hie scourge than males,
and town dwellers than country folk.

The Naturalization Law of Canada.
Any alien who shall have resided in
Canada three years may become a British
subject, under the Naturalization Act of
Canada, by making the required oath before a,justice of the peace;'said justice of
the peace, if .satisfied with the evidence
offered-of the alien's residence and good
"character; shall'grant such'alien a certificate that he is a person of good character
and that there exists no reason why he
should not be granted all the rights and
'capacities of a natural-born British subject. Such certificate shall be presented
to the -assi/.e court during its sittings
in the electoral district within the jurisdiction of which the alien resides, or to
the county court of such district. Such
presentation shall be made in open court
on the first day of some general sitting of
such court, aud thereupon such court
shall cause the same to be openly read in
court, and if during such sitting, the
.facts me'-tioued in such certificate are not
controverted, or any other valid objection made to the naturalization of such
alien, such court, on the last'day of such
sitting, shall direct that such certificate
shall be filed of record in the court, aud
the person then shtdl lie entitled to till
political and other rights, powers, and
privileges, and is subject to all obligations
to which tt natural-born British .subject i.s

aliens must first have resided in Canada
three years before they-can take the oath
of allegiance, and then the certificate of
that oath must first be read in open court
before the person taking theoalli becomes
a full-fledged British subject, tind no one
hut a. full-Hedged British subject can have
his name placed on the voters' list. A

Two of a Kind.
The Vancouver World and The Miner
a.re two of a .kind. The World's owner
is a great politician tind a wonderfully impressive stump speaker. At u recent
political meeting at Chilliwack, iu Sew

one of his impressive speeches, but the
people in attendance did not want to hear
him -and they didn't. But The World
published thespeeeh just as if it had been
delivered. The Miner has no one directly
connected with it who is a politician, but
indirectly it has: a gentleman, who, by
the way. has gone through nine campaigns in British Columbia. This gentleman is as great a letter writer on political
questions as the owner of The World is a
speech maker. But. somehow, the people
to whom he addresses his letters do not
care to read them. I le t oecnt ly addressed

"Will Get More Ore Than They Can Handle
 Over Two Hundred Animals in Harness
 Machinery   for   Nelson   and   Ainsworth
Mining operations in Slocan district are
fairly booming, considering that but few
of the mines are in the hands of men with
large capital and the cost of getting the
ore to the steamboat landing so great.
The Slocan Star has had to quithauling
ore, as the ore house at Three Forks is
chuck full. The Alamo is working eight
men and is ready to make a shipment of
ore. "Work has started up on tlie Queen
Bess, and the Freddie Leo people, no
longer afraid of .snow-slides, will resume
work at once. S. S. Bailey has completed
a rawhide road from the Payne group to
Three Forks, and has let a contract to '
haul ore through to Kaslo. Other regular
producers, like the Washington, Noble
Five, and Mountain Chief, are making
their usual shipments. Over 200 heap of
stock are used in rawhiding and teaming
ore between the mines and Kaslo. J Yet.
people will say there are no mines in British Columbia^	
Concentrator Machinery Arrives.
The machinery for the Number One
concentrator arrived over the Nelson Ac
Fort Sheppard from Bossburg this week,
and was loaded on a barge and towed up
as far as Balfour. It will be towed
through to Ainswortli by the Nelson on
Monday. E. D. Cartel-, who superintended the removal of the machinery,
was in Nelson on "Wednesday and reported
work on the concentrator building well
under way. It is more than probable
that the machinery will be started up
with steam power, as the creek from
which the water power is taken is to low
at pi-esent to furnish sufficient power.
The power from that source will, however,
be ample in the spring. The Number One
company also expect a carload of horses
and feed by tonight's train.
Business Increased Seventy-Pive per Cent.
..   The year 181)3 was not a prosperous one
in either Canada or the  United States as
the clearing- house returns of the  largo
cities show.    In the United States, the returns show a decrease ranging from 2o per
cent in cities like New York to 50 percent
"in cities like  Denver.    In Canada the decrease was not so large, yet the total volume of business transacted was much less
than "for _ the preceding  year.    The  only
section of British  Columbia that shows a
marked 'increase'  is Southern Kootenay.
The banks at Nelson tire the authority for
the statement that in 1S.).'J the business of
the mining  divisions in  Southern   Kootenay increased 7o per cent over  that of
Supplies for Forty-Nine Creek.
This week a ton and a half of supplies
were boated down the Kootenay to the
mouth of Forty-nine creek, whence they
will be taken to tho scene of operations of
the Nelson Hydraulic Mining Company.
The contracts let by that company, last
week will keep a foice of twenty men at
work for a couple of months. "Joe"
Parkin and "Mat" Corrigan have been
awarded the contract for boarding the
men, and as soon tis suitable shelter can
be provided active operations will be coiiimenced. 	
A Diamond Drill on Toad Mountain.
The flail .Mines, Limited, is using u diamond drill in the Kootenay Bonanza mine
on Toad mountain. It is a Sargison hand
drill with a capacity of 10 feet a day. It
is doing good work, the diorite on Toad
mountain not being seamy, as is the slate
in Slocan district. At present, the drill is
in the new shaft on the Kootenay Bonanza
and is running through good ore.
Carload for Carload.
For every carload of ore that is shipped
from the Slocan mines a carload ol hay or
grain is shipped in. The only difference
is in the tonnage. The ore averages
twenty tons to the carload and the feed
about eleven. The hay and grain is worth
somewhere in the neighborhood of !>.() a
ton and the ore $12").
Work to be Resumed.
Supplies are being packed up to the
Lizzie C. a claim located about 2.'. miles
southeast of Nelson, and work on the tunnel will be resumed next week. The claim
is one of the LaBau group. Charley

What Mine  Can   Beat It?
The Washington mine of Slocan district sent a 1200-pound chunk of ore to the
Midwinter Fair at. San Francisco. The
piece was carefully sampled and yielded

Covered  With Snow.
The houses and cabins at the Washington and Dardanelles mines. Slocan district, are nearly covered wilh the beautiful, There is no danger of suowslides,
however, tit either place.
The Antolopo Leased.
"Ivl" Kingeii. "Al" Palmer, and "Bob"

The present government of British Columbia chums to be "���progressive," and the  elaim is not without some foundation-���  but it is the sort of " progressives loss" that  is likely to end in the provinee going into  the hands of a reeeivor. The province  eaeb year spends more than it takes in;  last year the net expenditures amounted  to over $100,000 more than the net receipts.'.'���������And what'has the province got  to show for it? -Apparently, only the  $72,000 spent on tlie new parliament building at Victoria.  If the "progrcssiveness" of the government is running the province farther and  farther in debt, and that, too, without incurring liabilities in the way of granting  aid to railways, i.s it an act of wisdom to  either guarantee'the .interest on  or   the  principal of the  bonds, of .projected  railways?   The interest on the bonds of the  the Shuswap Ac Okanagan   railway .was.  guaranteed.    The total bond  issue on the  fifty-one milesof its road was .*?1,2-1(5,7('-'., or  $2-1,500 a mile. The interest, at I per'cent,,  amounts to $49,900 a year.   .This the province   has  guaranteed   to see   paid.    As  security the Dominion subsidy of $-"3200 ti  mile, or $103,000, was handed over  to the  province,  and   -10  per cent of the  gross-  earnings of the road" is'also' paid  to the  "province.    For the first thirteen months  that  the road-'was  in'��� operation (up  to  June 30th, 189.*}), .10 per cent of the gross  earnings amounted to only $1-1,800, or $'>V  100 less than.the  interest.   That $3.1,100  bad to be paid out of the money received  from   the Dominion.    If   the earnings of  the road do not increase rapidly, the province will, within six years, be going down  in its pocket every year to the extent of  thousands of dollars to make good the deficit on the interest.  This same sort of "progressiveness" is  being repeated in building the Nakusp A:  Slocan railway, only it is proposed to  guarantee the principal as well as the  interest on the Nakusp i_ Sloean bonds,  it is also to be repeated on the Nicola  road, over in. Vale. "Progressiveness" is  all right, but when it is done solely in the  interest of a gang of spoilsmen (like those  interested in the Inland Development <.v  Construction Company) is it not time the  people of the province called a halt?  HAVE   DIFFERENT   AIMS.  for registration iu the district, excepting,  of course, those posted at Revelstoke.  The .Miner, also, lakes exception to the  telegram sent from Nelson to the attorney-  general in regard to the names dropped  from the printed list, saying that the government was considering the matter before the telegram was sent. Ves; the  government wjis "considering" tho mimes  that, had been dropped from the Hovel-  stoke list, but it knew nothing whatever  of tlit- iKiinesoiiiitted from the Nelson list,  although they were duly posted at Nelson  in 1890,1891. :ind 1892. Til 10 Tki hunk's only  aim is to secure for West Kootenay its  share of representation under the now  redistribution bill, and if the people see lit  to return supporters of the Dttvie government: till well and gootl. The .Miner,  evidently, has no Jtiin other than to lind  fault with Tin-: Tin Hi'Xi-: Jind make a fool  of itself gonorjilly.  In it letter to the chjiirman of a public  meeting at Ktislo-a letter tluit was not  read, however��� Cilbort :M;ilcolni Sproat  gives rotisons why the West Kooteiniy  Convention should not be held, and as an  old hand who has gone through nine campaigns predicts the defeat Jit the polls  of jt,ny candidate that the convention may  nominate, il might be remarked, incidentally, that the nominee of the convention  cannot suffer ji more hejirt-brejtking deficit than the one suffered in 1890 by tho  candidate whose campaign Air. Sproat  managed.   Ik the building of a rjiilway over the  level reaches of country between Sica-  mous and Okanagan cost $2-1.."500 (in bonds)  a mile, what will be the cost of the Na-  kusp ��_c Slocan railway (in bonds) a mile?  The Vancouver World will please answer.  FACTS   IN   PARAGRAPHS.  In an editorial, headed "Not (!<>od -Advice," The Miner says Tiik Ti.ii.i/NI'. announced in its issue of January 20th that  " it would be necessary for men who have  " alrea.dy claimed to luive their names in-  " sorted on the register to make fresh jtp-  " plications, in consequence of the bung-  " ling of the lists." Tin-: Thiisunio nuido  no such announcement. What TlllO  Ti.lB-l'Xf'* announced was: "It is the duty  " of every British subject in the district,  "qualified to do so, to register iit once;  " for the government will cancel the pres-  " out printed list nnd cause a new one lo  " be made out. In order that the new one  "shall boas complete as possible, every  " Hritish subject whose namedoesuot np-  " pear below should Jit once send in his  " name to the collector of voters at either  " Nelson or Revelstoke." Then followed  ii list of every name registered or posted  The queen of Kngland lias reigned longer  than any other ruler in the world, having  ascended the throne in 1837. Next to her  in point of time are emperor Francis  Joseph of Austria and Frederick the  grand duke of Hjiden. The motijirehs who  have reigned the shortest time sire prince  Friedrich of Waldeck and duke All rod of  Stixe-Coburg-Cothti. The oldest monarch  is the pope, who i.s more than eighty-three  years of age. The grand duke of Luxembourg and the king of Denmark, respectively seventy-six and seventy-live years  old.'stand next to him in this regard. The  grand duke Karl Alextinder, who lives in  Woinmr, is fourth in point of ago, aud  queen Vic_ori;i. with her seventy-four  years, i.s the lifth oldest monarch.  The 'doors of the pioneer national bank  of Montana, the First National of Helena,  were reopened for business on .January  22nd, ��� after being closed for nearly six  months. The announcement was made a  few days before .that..date, and promptly  ab 10 o'clock of tluit "morning the sign:  "Hiink open from 10 a. m. to 3 p. in."..was  displayed. .Immediately the people began  to. pour in, many to extend their.congratulations, but ji'larger number to illustrttle  their confidence in the institution by depositing their money. When noon arrived  more than $200,000' had been ' deposited;  and at 3 o'clock the total deposits laid  grown to'$230,000. On the other hand the  withdrawals amounted to $1(5,000.  The Dublin l_.xpre.ss .has fathered the  rumor thai. John -Morley, chief secretary  for .Ireland, is about to retire from office  because.his health is not eqttiil to.the discharge of its exacting duties. The Express says that'the rumor is circulated tit  the National Liberal Club in London.  This statement is false. The unanimous  opinion of the club is that Mr. Morley will  hold his post until after the adoption of a  Home Htile bill by parliament. 'His health  is better thau before his trip to the continent.  Sir Charles .Dilke'asserted recently in  parliament: "The most dangerous illusion  any inhabitttnt of the United Kingdom  can have is tluit we area popular power.  We fire probably the most unpopular of  the gi eat powers."  The Midwinter Fair at San .Francisco  was opened on Saturday, January 27th.  Why  Mankind Has to Learn How to Swim.  A writer in Nineteenth   Century brings  forward ji quite plausible explanation of  the fact tluit,   while most of the  animal  creation   appear   to   swim   by   intuition,  man is   most alone  iu  requiring previous  tr.-iining to enable  him  to keep   his head  above water.    He say.- it is merely Jt matter of heredity, find  due to  our  descent  from races who were cave find rock dwellers   and   rock   find   free  climbers.     This  theory does   not  necessarily   imply   Darwinism, or go so far as to demand the belief thas man   is but ti  highly revised edition of soiiiojinthropoitl ;ipe.    Ho suggests  that  almost   fill   ninniniiferotis   animals,  when   conscious  of danger,   use  instinctively the meniisgiveu them for flight find  escape,  which involve   precisely   the   motions best circulated   to keep (lli.in  ji float-  in   water.     The   hereditary    instinct   of  man. however, is  unfortunately, he says,  to climb out of tho danger.    Hence, unless  he lifts fi natatory   education,   he  throws  his firms at, once above his head, thus increasing   his   weight    upon    tho    hitter,  which, of course, goes then  under water.  Thus the struggles of the untaught human  being tend to   Ids  own destruction, as i.s  weH'knowii  to   bo   the  case.    It,   nifty be  added that, admitting this view, wo bar  ourselves From any   imputation   ofabat-  rfichiiin   element   in   our ancestry.    I hid  there fortunately been such, we ought, to  have found ourselves  swimming instinctively   when   plunged   into  deep   waters.  Nevertheless, in  any case,   the   frog   has  clearly been our  pereeptor or   rather our  exaiiijilnr   iu    this   useful   art.    for   man  swims   greatly   like   a   frog,   and   by   no  means "like a'duek" or "like a fish," as so  often t ritoly phrased.

THS   SrESCH   OP   ANIMALS.  A CMca&o Doctor   Claims   to  Have   Taught  a  c Sc'uii'rel to   "Talk."  Tim!, .���iiiiiuals It a ve a means ol' coin m m lien ling ninon/^ liieinselves ihrout^'li cet'Laiii  voctil sounds is a, well established t'ni.l:  bli.it, Lliosti vocal sounds are of siil'licienl,  ran^o Lo express oilier t litin more physical  ideas, and Lints Lo assume Llie iuiporLance  of a IniitfUiitfe, is probable. alLhou^ii as  yet, improved. It is toward Lhe final  setrLleineiiL of this question thai. I wish Lo  tttld my milo. and, while (here is much  Lhat', mipflit be said, in Lhe presonL instance  I will confine niy observations to a field  but little explored ��� the attempts of  animals to communicate with iittin.  For the last three years 1 have had a  lame fox squirrel of which 1 have made a  ijreat, pet. Folly has occupied a cage in  the laboratory where she litis been, for  tlie most part, shut off from the sights  and sounds of the outside world. Although at times the laboratory ha-; had  oLher tenants in the shape of squirrels,  rabbils, and guinea pigs, she has formed  no particular attachment foratty of them,  but. when 1 am aboutshe is usually close  to inc. either on my shoulder or following  mi' about like a dog.  Inconsciottsly at lirst and later with a  definite purpose. I have diked Lo her  much ;ts one would talk to a young child.  About a year ago she began to reply to  my conversation. Ar, lirst it was only in  response to my -questions as to.food, etc.,  but later the "talk" has assumed larger  proportions, until now she wiil, of her own  ���accord, assume the initiative.  ilei' vocabulary appears to bo quite extensive, .and while, for the most pttrt, it  pertains to matters of food and personal  comfort, there are times when it seems  as though she were trying to tell me of  other things.  ���'When J lirst go out where she is in the  morning she immediately asks for food,  and until that, wa-nt i.s supplied she keeps  up a const-suit��� muttering. .Later when her  hunger is appeased shu will ask to be let  ������out. of the cage. ;Often when playing  'about the room she will climb onto my  shoulder tind "talk" Lo me for a. while in a  low tone and then scamper oIf. Unless  she is sleepy, she will always.reply to any  remark made to her.  tier speech is not the chattering ordinarily observed in squirrels, but a low guttural tone that reminds one both of the  low notes of a frog ami the cluck of a.  chicken. Home of the notes I have been  able to repeat, and invariably she becomes  aiertatul replies to them. Unfortunately  the effort to reproduce her tones produces  an uncomfortable effect on my throat,  and 1 have been obliged to desist i'roin  further experiments in that direction.  The sounds that she makes are quick and  in low" tone: so the attempt io isolate  wort Is is very difficult, yet (here is as  iiit it-li range of ii.licet ion as in (lernutti.  .Another reason why I believe she is endeavoring to eon i in u 11 irate with me is that  she has used the same sounds ��� toward  other squirrels con lined in the same cage,  and that, while she will answer any one  who addresses Iter, she voluntarily will  only litlk at length to mo. That she understands what is said lo her is beyond  question, iintl. furthermore, she wiil distinguish between a remark made to her  and one made to someone else.  I have had many pets that would  answer iu monosyllables to a question  asked then, or indicate by actions lheir  desires, but (his is the lirst instance that  hits come under my observation iu which  an animal has atlempleti more than that.  When Folly first commenced "talking,"  I regarded it merely as idle chattering,  but further observation shows that it is  not such and that Lite sounds she makes  have a delinito meaning. .Moreover, the  sounds she makes iu "talking" tire not the  shrill notes of anger or alarm, but low.  dear sounds that tire unmistakably artieu-  la t e.  In my fondness for my pet. have I overestimated the value oi' the sounds she  makes, or am I right in assigning to them  the ehameters of speech? Why should  an animal not attempt to communicate  with man? The higher animals are possessed of a well formed larynx find vocal  chords. Why. then, should we deny or  ever question the possibility of articulate  speech? And, if tnoy ran converse among  themselves, why may they not attempt  to connininical.e with man?  Any one who has owned a well bred dog  can relate numerous instances in which  his dog litis dourly understood what was  said toil, and the readiness with which a  dog learns ti new command shows tut intelligence of a high order. Although a  dog's vocabulary is of li,,..itcd range, it  has certain definite sounds thai possess an  unmistakable meaning. '.'here is the  short, sharp bac'\ that, expresses a want,  (lie low, nervous bark that means discom  fort, tlie sharp, quick bark of joy, the low  whine of distress, the growl of distrust,  the deej) growl of ti tiger, the loud bark of  warning and tho whimper of fright.  When to those is added the various movements of the body, cowering in fear,  crottchi .ig in auger, the stilt bracing of the  body in defense, leaping in joy. and many  special actions, as licking the hand of the  master or pulling at his clot'es. we find  that a dog can express his likes tind dislikes, his wanfsand his feelings, as clearly  as though he were human. Any one who.  in a time of sorrow or depression, has had  his dog come to him ami lay its head in  his lap and has looked down into those  great brown eyes so full of sympathy and  love, can never doubt (hat the dog understood all. anil in its own way 'was trying  to comfort,.  A friend's cat litis an unmistakable  sound I'or yes and no. The former is a low  meyoiiw, while the latter is a short, sharp  m'yoww. If Tom wants to go out, that  fact is made manifest by a. quick nieyouw.  If, perchance, anyone should be in the  chair Tom regards its his especial property, no regitrd for propriety restrains  him from indicating tluit fact n.nd unceremoniously ordering the intruder out.  11 is nii.'youw* on such an occasion cannot  be mistaken. Itistn.nces of this sort are  not uncommon and ordinarily fail lo  attract attention, but is there not here a  Held thitt will well repay a careful investigation?  Until my pet squirrel commenced her  performance.-; 1 regarded these things as it  matter of course, but her chattering litis  raised with me the question, is it not possible that our animal friends tiro endeavoring in I heir own way to talk to us as we  talk to them?   SHORT   STORIES   OP   THE   BAR.  STEAMERS   FOR   THE   LAKES.  The shortest aud most intelligible chancery suit on record was probably one���recorded by (Jroake James���between lord  Fnniskillen and a lady litigant. Jt was  about a. piece of wasteland that promised  little harvest except to the lawyers, and  his lordship called upon his opponent and  proposed, instead of lighting it out, to  toss for it. "(Jonie," lie said, producing a  sovereign, "heads or mils, ma'am?" This  very sensible lady at once fell into his  humor, and cried "Tails!"���which it wjis.  What rjither spoils the story was that  she had afterwards misgivings about the  respectability of this way of settling in.it.-  ters. and, selling the land in question, bestowed it on a charity.  I&tvas Henry \V. I'jiino. the eminent  Boston lawyer who died the other day.  who made to a chief-justice, wdio interrupted his argument with the remark:  "31 r. Fainc. you know tluit this is not htw"  ��� the quiet reply: "It was law until your  honorspciko." anil proceeded complacently  with his argument. One of the best of  the many stories about him is that of the  Harvard student who met him in a Cambridge horse-car reading a. volume of tho  .Hassjiehusetts Reports. "Why.' 'JMiv  Paine;"said tlie young man, ".I am surprised, to find that you should .find it,  necessary to read law in a. horse-Car." '* 1  am not reading law," responded Mr. Paine;  I am reading the decisions.of the supreme  judicial court of Massachusetts."  In the Ardhimont murder case, recently  tried in Scotland, Connie Thomson objected to certain evidence on the ground  that it was inadmissible, tvnil supported"  his contention from Mjtcdonald's *'Crini-  iujil Law." the judge's own work. A similar' incident once occurred before Mr.  justice Bylos, who, upon his own celebrated treatise, "Byles on Bills," being  cited by council, remarked: "Does tlie  learned author give any authority for  that statement? I ask,-because I know  him well, anil he i.s'not ill ways to be 'relied'  on."    The remark made on a prolix Scotch  counsel, when someone observed that lie  was "surely wasting a great deal of time,"  is among the wittiest of bar anecdotes:  "Time! "lie lias long exhausted time, and  litis encroached upon eternity!" It is seldom, to do Llie judges justice, tluit they  encourage this failing in counsel: but in  Cockbtun's "Memoirs" we are told how ji  dull tind common-place ttdvocate was  almost frightened, out of his wits by tin  observation of lord Meadowbank (who  thought his style undignified): ������Declaim,  sir: why don't yon declaim? Sneak Lome  tis if I wore a popular assembly."  Frank Lock wood, tin Fnglish counsel-of  whom many stories are told, was once defending a man tit York who wjis accused  of stealingcattle ���- -"beasts." I hey mil them  there. "Now. my man." said l.oekwood,  "you sjty thai you saw thus and so; how  faf can you see a beast to know it?" "Just  as faroitits I ;\u\ from yon." promptly returned lhe wiLuess. In another case a.  thief showed both wit Jind some logic,  lie had been convicted of stealing a horse.  "* Yours is a very serious oll'cnse." said the  judge, sternly: "Mfty years ago it was a  hanging matter." "Well," replied the  prisoner, "tind fifty years hence may not  be ii crime at all,"   A western judge wtis listening to an attorney who had a mean habit of interpolating remarks into the proceedings of the  court. What he said was scarcely ever  heard by anyone, tis he mumbled rather  than spoke, and would never repeat a remark. One day he said something which  nobody heard except the judge, who at  once became exceedingly tuigry. Turning  to the court bailiff, he thundered out:  "Adjourn this court!" Then, tis soon as  the bailiff had done his duty, the judge  stepped from the bench, beckoned to the  lawyer to follow him, and entered the  clerk's office. The lawyer went along. So  did two or throe other people. As soon as  the judge got fairly into the room, lie  seized ji law book, tind. turning upon the  lawyer, he fairly screamed: "I was on  the'bench ti while ago and you insulted me.  I was ii judge then. I ii.ni a man now, tind  the man will have an apology i'or the  judge, or he will take it, out of your hide.  Vou might make an apology to the judge,  but yon would not mean it. Now. however, the case is more serious, and unless  vou give me what I ask. I will smash your  iiead." The Ittwyer made a most abject  apology, which the judge accepted, and  then the party went, back Lo the court  room and resumed business.  The Floating Palaces to Run in Connection  With the Great Northern.  There was launched at Cleveland, Ohio,  a few days ago the finest merchant stetun-  ship ever turned out of an American shipyard on salt or fresh water, and. most appropriately, she is to be named "North  America." This vessel is the lirsl of it  passenger fleet building to the. order of  the Croat .Northern railway that i.s tie-  signed to 'revolutionize the travel of the  groat hikes. For years the freight traflic  of the northern lakes has been carried on  better ships, until now those boats are in  every point the peer, if not the superior,  of the freight c;itriers of evevy other nil-  lion of witters. ,  Tho North America and her consort,  the Northwest, which will be launched in  ti few weeks, is ,'iSl feet long, -l-l feet wide  and 2(i feel deep. They will hit ve accommodation I'or about (.(JO passengers, half  first-class and half emigrant. The boats  will be lighted throughout', by electricity,  having I'M) incandescent lights. This  quantity of light can best be understood  by the statement that the largest present  light plant on the lakes is onoof (.:".(. lights,  while the superb Campania, 020 feet long  jind (ii) beam, has only I"-.(.().  The vessel will be driven by twin sets  of quadruple expansion engines, the newest style, of a. combined horse power of  7000. while the heaviest engines now on  the hikes are 2,S()(. horse power. They will  be driven by steam L'tirnishod at vevy high  pressure by 28 Belleville boilers, the lirst  of these boilers ever used in the United  States, though several French warships  have them. Tliey are guaranteed a speed  of 20 miles an hour tind -will make much  more, probably 2S miles in deep w;\ tor.  This -would enable them to run around tlie  Atlantic greyhounds New York and J'aris  every twelve hours, while tlie full trip of  1000 miles from Buffalo to Dululh will be  made inside of .">.. hours. Such speed cannot be maintained without the expenditure of fuel and the trip is expected to require the burning of !.()() tons. The boats  will carry it crew of 150 men, or about six  times the number in the lirst-chiss metal  freighters of the lakes. Twin screws,  each fourteen feet in diameter, will propel the ship. Outer and inner skins of  steel will protect against shipwreck in  cjise of accident.  The vessel has four decks. On the lower  fieclc forward are the emigrant quarters,  room for .';;*.() people, nicely arranged anil  fitted with iron bedsteads. After this, in  water-tight compartments, are boilers a.nd  engines, and in the stern tire the crew's  quarters. On the main deck are the crew's  quarters forward, nextti beautiful dining  sjiIoou in white and gold, with ctirvetl  cherry wainscoaling. Thercare tobegrates  nnd open fireplaces, ji novel feature on  shipboard. On the upper deck are the  cabins and staterooms, till elegantly  fitted and niany with moveable beds in  piaco of the customary berths. On the  hurricane deck are houses, a large lounging room, ladies' reading room. etc.  The boatsjire not only new in build and  style, but they will be rim on a modern  phi.n tlicit- will give points to even the  ocean carriers. They will be run in the  style of air European hotel���one pays for  his passage iiccording Lo li i.s room and eats  according to his sejtsickness or appetite,  paying, "for whtit he gets. It is designed  to make the vessels a- 'charming link of  1000 miles in the transcontinental trip  oyer the Great Northern, for which misou  large emigrant quarters tire provided.  President. Hill of the Great Northern  has long had the plan of these boats in his  mind, and they are now his pots, livery  effort Avill be made to popularize-them  and to build up a great traffic, and all the  forces he so well knows how lo use will be  brought into piny. Tluit these boats will  be of incalculable benefit to the West cannot be questioned.  The Rich Copper-Silver Mines on Grouse Mountain are easily reached from.  the new townsite on the east side of Kootenay Lake, and which is distant about sixteen  miles from the mines. There is bound to be a rush to the mines on White Grouse Mountain in the spring, and DAVIE is sure to be a town of importance, as well as supplies for, and  ore from the mines must pass through it.

They  tiro true because they ha.vo been developed  iu accordance with the laws governing the  evolution of truth in human history, jind  because in poem, chronicle, code, legend,  myth, apologue, or parable they rellect  this development of what is best in the  onward march of humanity. To say that  they are not true is its if one should say  tluit ti flower or a tree or ti planet is not  true: to scolt ;it them is to scoff at the law  of the universe. In welding together in  noble form, whether in the book of Genesis, or in the Pstdms, or in the book of  Job, or elsewhere, the great conceptions  of men acting under earlier inspiration,  whether in F.gypt or Chtdtlea, or India, or  Persia, the compilers of our sacred books  hjivo given to humanity a possession ever  becoming more Jind more precious; Jintl  modern science in substituting a new  heaven tind a new ojirth for the old���the  reign of law for the reign of caprice, and  the idea of evolution for that of cretitiou���  litis iidded and is steadily adding a now  revelation divinely inspired.  THE   STRONGEST MAW IN THE   "WORLD.  Breach-of-Promise Suits.  Bretich-oi'-protiiise suits are much the  same as suits brought by grub-stakers to  recover interests in mining claims.,-is they  are often based on very uncertJiin understandings. The Loudon Spectator, moved  by the painful process of the modern  breach-of-proniise case, proposes that, no  promise of marriage be held vtdid unless  it is made in writing upon properly  stamped paper. Of course it will be objected that such ji proposition i.s injurious  lojtll t lit; roniitncc of courtship and marriage. But where is the romance in nine  out of ten brettch-of-proniise cases tluit  Iii id their way into Lhe courts? These  cttses are hardly ever brought except, by  people whose affections have not been  deeply engaged in their acceptance of a  suitor. For .one young woman who now  brings an action for breach-of-proniise at  least nine art; jilted tind suiter iu silence.  If it once became understood tluit the  ardent lover should oll'er such a proof of  his good faith, then a girl would know  well what to expect from ji lover who  withheld it.

Mooting upon one occasion a learned Canadian  judge of tt very rubicund countenance, sir  John said: '*_ itni delighted to sec you,  my deeply red old friend."  The True Value of Bibles.

In private life San clow is tt very pleasing  type of the simple-minded Corman. Mis  head is shaped exactly like the heads on  the old statues of Hercules. The forehead  is low and rather broad. The head is not  quite straight up and down behind, but  with only slight developeinent. it is  thickly covered with a short crop of tight,  golden curls, each; one looking as though  it had been specially fixed tip with a hot  iron, but thecurliness is perfectly natural.  The impressive muscular feature about  Sandow as seen fully clothed is his neck.  This neck, which is.padded on either side  with muscles about as big as ii young girl's  wrists, i.s nearly twenty inches round, almost as big round tis the head jtbove it.  It wouldn't be a-bad neck for a..small bull.  It is ti wonderful neck .for any man.  Sandow's dress is the dress of the aver-  ago young Englishman.. Mis lace is a  pleasant face; his eye, which is grey,  shows the character which litis made him  the man he is, and which enables him to  ���attempt Avith absolute confidence and  calmness the various feats tluit fill, his  audiences with delightand make him rich.  Sandow's story of himself i.s simple and  interesting. He sjtys tluit when ho was a  boy (lie was born in Konigsberg, .Prusski,  twenty-six years tigo) his lather took him  to .Home. There he saw and admired the  wonderful Creek statues. lie took an  especial-fancy to the various statues of  Hercules, and wanted to know why men  were not like that in modern'times. His  hither informed-him that it wtis because  they did not try hard enough. The railways jind other things lmd. made them  lazy. Young Sandow, when ten years  ���old, decided that he would make himself  sis much like Hercules its he possibly could.  He has succeeded well, as Lhe pictures of  him' which have been published must  show, There are many shit ties of Hercules tluit do not look the part as well its  does Sandow posing naked for his photograph.  Sandow hits a method of his own to develop the muscles. It consists in various  exercises with two dumb-bells, weighing  five pounds each, lie 'declares thai.-with  these dumb-bolls he has developed not  only the muscles which everybody can see  on Lhe outside of his body, but internal  muscles, which strengthen the w.mIIs of  his chest, enable his heart and olher  organs to endure great strains, and insure  liiin a long life. . lie does not take special  care of himself iu the way of eating or  drinking. Beer and wine are not strangers  to him. tind tobacco is his intiniaLe friend.  He loaves brandy tilone. however, as he  does similar poisons. An interesting  feature of Sandow's method of training is  that he cjiii train very well sitting on a  oliitir. He cut sit down and read a paper  Jtntl keep his muscles working nil the  while, so that till development of-hit is  rendered impossible, tind hi-, slrenglh is  kept up to the highest pitch.  Sandow- wont on locall attention to certain muscles which in most men are but  slightly developed, or have practically no  existence. Ho swelled out his chest, it ml  on either side of it five big muscles rose  up. Il looked as though five rihson either  side were coming through the skin. Asa  matter of fact,, llie ribs were not visible.  What was seen was lhe muscle which lies  over each rib. and which on the ordinaly  iinin is entirely undeveloped. Kadi* of  these muscles was twice as big round its a  man's thumb, and the live on each side  sioodotit tis distinctly as though ji great  hand had boon placed on oil herside of the  Hum's chest. Next the strong man pointed  with pride to a muscle on Lhe outside of  his leg just below the waist. lOncli muscle  its ho came to it he called  by its scientific '���  name, I'or Sandow has studied medicine at  (lottingen. and undorshinds anatomy.  This particular muscle on the hip with  most men amounts to nothing. In Sandow's case it is about as big tis the leg of  Jin old-fashioned rocking-chair.  To show the muscles of his back Sandow  stood erect with his arms behind his head.  Tho way the muscles tiro piled up on tJitit  back are most ingenious. They are so  thick, so deep, that the backbone, whicli  is quite invisible, runs alongat the bottom  of tt deep gorge, whicli extends from the  nape of the neck to the loins.  Sandow wtis especially pleased with the  muscle which ho called his trapesus  muscle, that is the muscle which runs  from the neck over the shoulder to the  top of the arm, and which accounts for  the fact tluit all men of extraordinary  strength have sloping shoulders.  A. man without sloping shoulders is ti  injiii with poor muscular development.  Sandow's shoulders slope tis much as it is  possible for them to do. His neck seems  to moltiiAVtiy into his chest. His trapesus  muscle, whicli he fondly loves, is as thiek  through jis the back of a man's hand is  broad, jind thicker in some phi cos.  From his teeth, with whicli he can support the weight of a good-sized horse,  down to his feet Sandow is thoroughly  developed. Every muscle stands out by  itself and appears tu bo under perfect control.  ���  "Women Shod "Wisely Asainst Their Will.  Many shoe-stores and some shoe-factories now make it a point to prevent women from finding out whtitsi/.eshoes they  tire buying. That seems curious, but it  grows out of a peeulitirity of womankind  which'gives the shoe-clerks a great deal of  trouble. They say tluit tho majority of  women will not try ji shoe that is the  right si/.c. They nearly all want them to  be too small.' it often happens tluit a  woman buys a shoe which she has declared  to be the- most comfortable tluit she ever  put on her feet. Then she gets home and  sees the number, or sees it before the purchase is wrapped up,"and if it is a shade  larger tlnin she has been in the habit of  buying, she will not hike the purchase.  On'this account-there litis grown up a custom of nuirking shoes with a. cipher,  system, which only the manufacturers  and dealers can understand. The result  is that many women jire more wisely shod  than ever they were before.  HOTEL  Situate on Vernon  Street, Near Josephine.  The Hotel Overlooks  The Kootenay.

The  first number "of  Ilevelstoko's  new  paper, "The Mail," is expected to be issued in March.  J. J. Barclay,-, who for a year was a.resident of Kaslo, is now connected with the administration  of the Midwinter Kair at San Kruncisco.  The first ball of the Hose Team Social  _. Club, given at Hume's hall on Wednesday evening, netted  the lire company ��2!l.  The active -members of the Nelson fire  department have adopted a regulation iissessing a Mini  for using "cuss words" at fires. Some of the boys who  swear are now wondering how much of their yearly stipend they will actually draw down.  The Revelstoke Star is''iiiuch ".surprised'  at the voters'list of the Nelson polling division, as printed  by the government, showing so few names. The Star  will also be surprised when the returns from 'tliu election  come in.  The collector of voters of the Revelstoke polling division has been instructed to send all tlie  names collected by him to tlie collector of voters of the  Nelson polling division, in order that an accurate list be  - made out. There arc now over SltJO names on the voters'  list, in West Ivootenay, and every name that of a real live  man.  The reputed laziest man  on the south  side of Baker street is now receiving compliments from  his friends on the neatness and cleanliness ot" the ollice  in which he works. W. .1. Wilson's otlice door has bad  its first scrubbing and the ollice stove its lirst blacking,  and Charles Clark Sproule found the time to do it.  The ladies of. Nelson have undertaken  the task of raising funds to purchase a new tiro bell, and  all those who desire to lend their aid are requested to  meet at the residence of Mrs. G. N.

One  day  last week a small snowslide  caught, one of George Hughes's rawhide out tits when  colli, ig down from the Idaho mine. One mule was  covered completely over, and the driver, "Long John."  had nothing but his head above snow lino when the  rescuing party arrived.   No lives lost.  A social will be given at the residence of  Mrs. J. A. Turner, on Victoria street, on the night of the  If.lh instant. The entertainment will comprise music  and games, and be quite .informal. Refreshments will  be provided. The proceeds will be turned over to the  Methodist church fund.  The Kaslo Examiner raises a great howl  because the old city council of Kaslo advertised in out-  Side papers, like the San Francisco Kxamincr. for pro-,  jiosals to establish industrial enterprises at Ivaslo. Outside papers made Ivaslo. and its people should not, expect,  to get free advertising all their lives.  Mr. and Mrs. R. F. Green of Ka.slo were  "surprised" by their friends on Wednesday evening. The  date of the surprise was the llfth anniversary of their  marriage.   The presents were all of wood.  The hotelmen   of Ktislo  are .*kicking*'  at lhe attempt to raise the hotel license from $'200 to  Sllltl. If lhe raise is made some ol" those now in business  will seek other tields.  On St.  l.'ati'ick"s day the ladies of the  Catholic church will give a fair in lvnslo and a contest  for the most popular young lady in the parish. The premium is a beautiful gold watch. The contestants are  Miss Mary Scanlanof Nelson and Miss Maggie Klhaius of  Kaslo. Kev. Father Aceorsini has been working hard  since his arrival here, and if there is money in the country, the debt against the pastoral residence at Xelson will  surely be paid.

A Three Forks Man Finds a Wife.  The following is clipped from an Ontario paper of recent ditto: ''The residence of Willinn Sttibbs, A till.svill.., was  the scene of a happy event, when, on  Tuesday evening. If. II. Pitts of Three  Forks, Jiritish Columbia, was married to  J-i-iiclln, eldest daughter of Mr. Sttibbs, tin-  It  was a  New  Game   and  the  Gambler Just  Wanted   to Know.   ���  Through a miscalculation of time a. professional gambler was caught one Sunday  in a small country town in the province of  Ontario, not a '"hundred miles from Toronto, and was obliged to remain over  until -Monday morning. It was a dull and  gloomy day at best tind was particularly  so for the speculator, used as he wtis to  the excitement of city life, lie lounged  around all the morning, slept most of the  afternoon, but in the evening, for want of  other amusement, he began to stroll  through the village. It was just about  church time, and the gambler, moved by  some impulse, followed a number of people into one of the houses of worship.  The scene was till new and strange to  the visitor, and in the novelty he found  much to interest him. He had a dim  recollection of having been to church  years and years before, but the remembrance was very faint indeed. The music  pleased him and hail the preacher been a  gooil talker and chosen a. theme somewhere up with the times there is no telling what the result might have been in  regard to this rather black sheep who.had  strayed so far from the fold. As it was  the sermon wtis rather dull, tind the gambler soon let his fancy roam from his  present .surroundings anil began forming  plans of an entirely worldly character. It  was during this (it of abstraction that the  ushers passed.'.the. contribution -plates.  Down the aisle where the stranger sat  came one of them, and as he drew near  tlie -gambler noticed that the people were  ���placing, coins of various denominations  upon the plate. Fishing a small gold coin  out of his pocket he tossed it in with the  rest and resumed his musing. In all probability he wouldiiever have thought of it  again: had he not noticed the usher walking back up the aisle.  Realizing his ignorance .-of the "game,"  it naturally occurred to him to inquire as  to the result of his venture. With a low  "hist" he attracted the usher's attention,  and as that .-individual stooped down to  listen the gambler asked:    " Did 1 lose'?"  The Legislative Assembly.  Up to the 20th of January, the legislative assembly was chiefly . engaged in  listening to a wordy wrangle between  premier Davie and Mr. Kitchen of New  Westminister over public documents that  the premier, said Mr. Kitchen had obtained in an.underhand way. One of the  documents'was'the public accounts-for  the year 18..2-*3. The question might be  asked, if the public accounts are to be  denied members of the assembly why  should they be given out to friends of the  ���governniont.il- distant portions of the province. A copy .was receh'ed at Nelson  over two Aveeks ago. The premier got  much the worse of. the wordy squabble,  and throughout shoAved his unfitness for  the position he holds. The leader of a  government should be above the petty  acts of vindictiveness that .characterize,  premier Davie. Mr. Kellie of West Kootenay gave notice of a motion asking the  assembly to memoralize the Dominion  government for an appropriation to improve the Columbia river from Revelstoke.  north to the mouth of Canoe river, so as  to mtike the Columbia navigable. Colonel  Baker of East Kootenay got the assembly  to pass his bimetallism resolutions. A  vote was also taken on the Chinese restriction 'question, the vote showing that  thirteen members favored restricting  Chinese immigration and fourteen favored  letting them come in as tit present.  The Forthcoming Redistribution Bill.  The Vancouver World, in a long editorial on redistribution says, "the rapid  " development taking place in West Koot-  " enay is a matter for congratulation,  "tind it is quite probable another repre-  ** sensitive will be given it." Indeed!  Then, it is only ."probable" that West  Kootenay is to have ti fair share of representation in the next legislature. If the  district was sure to return supporters of  the present government there would be  nothing "probable" about it. But the  district may return opponents of the  present government, and, of course, the  opposition must be kept down.  Peanut Party.

Delivery of this sort, as is well known, means  delivery in the elevators, not in the cars.  Armour's granaries were full. The combination would not let him have ti bushel's  room in any other structure. And still he  had three million bushels to move from  the far west, and there was but thirty  days left for the completion of the undertaking. When he discovered the "freezing-out" designs of his competitors he  gave himself no anxiety whatever, lie  rang his office bell.    A clerk responded.  "Send for Mr. , the builder."  Mr. duly made his appearance.  There was a brief con versation. Twenty-  eight days after that the newest aiid  largest; grain elevator in the world was in  Armour's possession. It had been built  for him iu the interim by an enormous  force of men working in three eight-hour  shifts each day. The three million bushels  were stored on the twenty-ninth day, and  there was space to .spare for a. million more.  BARGMNST^  A uO-l-'OOT LOT on Vernon street,.
