 IE0SIAVVE  Provincial Libmry  Presents an Unequalled Field for the Developer  of   Mineral   Claims   showing   Gold,   Silver,  Copper, Lead, and Zinc, as Well as for  the Investor in  Producing Mines.  Already Completed or Under Construction and  Steamboat   Lines   in   Operation   Make   the  Mining   Camps   and   Towns   in   Kootenay   Accessible   the   Year   Round.  SHCOND   YI*L'\R.:--:NT).  KELSON,  TLSK- COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY, JANUARY 20,   1804.  OiSTE  DOLLAR A. YEAR.  LIST.  THE GOVERNMENT   PROMISES TO MAKE  IT  RIGHT  AT   ONCE.  mk  m  "*>!r.J  (���,,-V-Ji'l  Although the List as Returned by the Collectors of Voters Contains but 520 Names,  Nearly 800 Names Have Been Sent in for  Registration, and Hundreds of Known  Qualified   Voters   Have   Failed  to  Send  in  Their   Applications West   Kootenay   has  Over   One    Thousand    Qualilied   Voters,   if  They Will but RegisteV.  When copies ol'" (ho printed voters'list  i'oi- the electoral district oi'  West ivootenay arrived nt. Xelson on Thursday considerable indignation  was manifested by  those whoso names did not appear on the  list, and charges and conn tor-charges of  "crooked work" were made by the friends  and    the  opponents  of  the  government.  The friends  of  the government claimed  that   tlie   list had   been  manipulated   at  Kevelstoke   in   the   interest of  "certain  men;" and tlio opponents of  the government) maintained   that tlie list had been  purposely cut down so   that  tho district  could   not   fairly   claim   more   than   one  member   in    the  redistribution  of seats.  Both  wore mistaken.    If the list is inao-  curato���and it certainly is���the fault lies,  primarly.   with   lho  government  for appointing two collectors of voters   for tlie  district: and.aftorwanls. with theoflicials  of tho district for their stupidity and carelessness in making out the list.  At the time of the last provincial election (in .June. 1N.K)), Kevelstoke was tho  seat of government of West; Koolenay  electoral district, and the voters' register  was kept at that place. Since then tho  seat of government has been removed to  Nelson: but for some reason the district  was divided inlo two polling divisions,  the original voters" register remaining in  the northern or WevoUtoke division. In  IS! 10 there; were less than 21~> names on the  list, nnd these names should be on (he  original voters'register, together with the  names sent to Lho collector of voters for  the northern or Revelstoko division during tho years IN..0, 1SS)1. !S!)2. and 1S..3.  For some reason, however,' the collector  of voters for that division lias seen lit to  leave olTa number of. names that were on.  the 1S!M) list, presumably because of" then-  being residents of Che southern or Nelson  polling .division. Among others loft��� off  Avore the names of Harold .Selous. John  Aytou Gibson, Wilson Mill, Alfred Hill.  Charles Wostlv Husk. John Charles Kyk-  ert, John 10. 'Walsh, Hubert W. Y'liill.  William .Hunter, James A. (.iilkor, Albert  Barrett, and Thomas Ha-rrott. Vet. while  leaving off the names of tho above residents of tlie southern division, the names  of the following well-known residents of  .. the southern division were retained on tlie.  list of the northern division, namely, J.  ..Fred Hume, Richare! S. Gallop, Robert F.  (ireen, .Saiuuel 11. Green. John Hamilton,  ���William-A. Jowett. Thomas Madden, and  ���'William F. Teetzel. This inconsistency  can be explained, no doubt, by the collector of voters for the northern division.  Tho collector of voters for the southern  or Nelson division, believing himself the  para-mount collector; asked for the; names  on the northern eli vision register, so as to  enable him to seiul to Victoria a eeiinplete  list feir the entire district. The names  were not sent, for tho reason, no doubt,  that the collector of veiters for the northern district, under the law, lias tho same  powers as,, the'collector of voters lor tho  southern district, anel with as good grave  coitlel have asked the southern official to  forward te. Hovelstoke the names em the  southern list.  The result of this cemllie-t of authority  is Ihat none of the names left off the  northern list appear on the southern list:  and. metre, none of (he names registered  utXolson during IK'K), ISOI. anel 1NH2 appear  o'n the southern list, either. Why they  do not appear will probably bo explained  b\'the collector of veiters em his return tei  Nelson fremi Victoria.  The feillowing telegram was sent attorney-general Davie as soon as the inaccuracy of the printed list was discovered:  X 1.1.1. (IN. ���llllllllll'.V KStll.  West.

If the inaccuracy of the list had not  been disctivered so soon, West Kootenay  weinle.l simply have been elisfrtinchiseel in  the next legislative assembly, as the gov-  eriuneiit would have answered till de-  inaiiels for fair representation with the  reply: "Why. there are only ~>20 names  on your voters' list, there-fore' yeitt are not  entitled tei the representation you ask  for." That there are over 1(100 ('(iialified  voters in West Kootenay is beyond elis-  pute: in Inert.

The Producers are Losing Thousands of Millions Annually.  William II. Clagett. one of the ablest  nit;n in Ldahe>, is writing a seiies of letters  on oe:onomic questions, and the. following  is an extract from his latest. It i.s well  worthy tho careful 'Consideration of  Canadians, tor the conditions prevailing  in the United States prevail to a great extent in Canaeln :  "Kve.noinic laws are as certain in their  eiperalion as tire the laws of nature.  With prosperity depending on price; with  prices depending upon the amount' of  money in circulation; wirli this circulation e.onstantly diminishing, for sixteen  years, the incresi.se of. debt was inevitable.  When we turn tei the figures this increase  nejt only startles, but terrifies.  "One of the most eronservativtj of our  public men, senator Daniel of Virginia, in  his speech in tho senate em September II.  IS.).'., stated that "in 1SS0 the total private  indebtedness of the American people; was  $(i.7()().()()0.l)()0. In 1X..0 it was *H..7(.().(K..).-  01)0. mi increase of thirteen thousand  millions of dollars" in ten years, or an  average increase of $I,.')0().(KH).()()O per annum. Kxle'iel this average increase from  IS.K) to the present time anel our present  private indebteelnoss tilone amounts tei  .S2*},0()().(.O...0()(.. At the meidcratc rate of <i  pore-out per annum, the; interest charge  upon this debt nmoimts to tho sum of $1,-  II().()()().()()(). This charge is payable, not in  preiporty nor the preielucts of labor, but in  money: anel this money ceirnereel by the  money monopoly tind ne.t'to be Intel except  by the payment eif still further interest.  "Tlie estimated true wealth of the  oouiitrv. based upon the census of IS'.K),  is about $,SO,()()0,0<K),0()0. Cpon this there  is a private debt burden of .$2;..(HK).(K)0.(XK).  In other worths, upon every SjiNO of property in (.he nation there is a private interest bearing debt of $_S>��.0!.. The average; g re iss annual ine-onie. of the people of  the I'uite.d States from ISS0 to l,S!.() was'  between seven and eight billions. Five;  huiitlreel tnillioiis_ of this ineonii. goes to  support the national ge.voriiiuont. At  lea.stun equal amount is absorbed in maintaining t he sta te', te-rrilorial, and iniuiie-i-  p.-il governments. One billion four hundred and sixteen millions goes for interest.  These ihree items of charge alone levy a  burden upon industry amounting to $2,-  I I0.(H.().()(.() per Minium, or a sum almost  eepial to the ii.-itieinal ele-li( at I ho close of  I In; civil war, and being nearly .'.() per cent  of the gross annual income' of lhc people.  'I'he subject could be pursued wil houtond,  lint the .situation is summarized iu the;  simple, statement'- the nation i.s bankrupt.  "The; question  arises, "Who have lost  the wealth represented by this fearful  tlebt?" Ib is plain that those who have  worked for wages have not lost it. They  have not had the credit to go largely into  elebt. nor thegilt-edgod security demanded  by the money changers. It has been lost  mainly by the great middle class���the employers of labor, who have been engaged  in the production of wealth.  "The money lost to the producers has  gone to the middle men���the mere distributers of wealth. It has gone to the  owners eif interest-bearing obligations; to  the banks; the landlords: the railroads:  tho merchants; the trusts; the speculators  and gamblers in futures. It h--.s gone to  build the cities whicli have grown up as  it were in a day. It has gone to cradle in  (he lap of luxury the beneficiaries of monopoly of every kind.  "Until the panic came the manual laborers, through their labor organizations,  managed tei save their rightful 'living  wage as the first charge upon production'  from the general elecline. Since it came  they, like their employers in productive  industry, have been swallowed up in the  general ruin.  "The great middle class���the employers of labor���is fast being reduced te) the  ranks of labor.    It is they who have been  the chief   .sufferers.     Their  losses   have  come wholly from the continuous decline  in prices.    This elecline has been  almost  wholly due to the insufficient circulation  find the monopoly of money granted by  law, which both  wings of the  monopoly  party have   refused   to remedy.    As the  market for their pioducts lias" waned in  value anel volume., instead of healing the  center of the elisease, they have only demanded   to have treated  its remote anel  trivial symptoms.    Blind to the fact that  no industrial .system can bring prosperity  wlien  business   is being done on a constantly falling market, they have run all  tho  gradations   of argument,  from  free  trade to a monopoly tariff; and now ele-  niand that their hisses, due to an utterly  vicious financial system, shall be compensated in the future by cutting the living  wage of their workmen.    As these workmen are the main consumers of their pro-  duets, a permanent reduction in the wage-  rate would only mean a greater shrinkage  in the capacity of the country to consume  those products and a still further loss of  market.  "Even now. by joining with the laboring masses in a spirit of mutual concession  anel interest, the great middle class can,  through the ballot, save itself from destruction. Yet it is the members of this  same great middle class who sit supinely',  "down' and hitg their dehisions of pVii-ty,  lost in stupid wonder as to the causes of  the wreck and ruin of their falling fortunes. Verily they are paying most  dearly I'or their memories of the past."  IS IT NOT TIME TO TAKE ACTION?  FIRE    DESTROYS    SEVERAL   THOUSAND  DOLLARS   WORTH   OF   PROPERTY.

Banker Cannon's Case.  .Banker Cannon -of Spokane's wealth is  estimated by millions. He is also a candidate for a seat in the United Sta tes senate.  On December llth he was married .'at  Helena, Montana, to Mrs. Eleanor Davis  Ward. Six months ago the latter was  divorced from.her husbaud, who had suc-  ceedeel in dissipating her private fortune.  She is young, handsome, anel bright as a  button. Mr. Cannon is nearly 70. lie  lost his wife during the early summer.  At the same time his business affairs became .entangled, owing to the. financial  stringency. Worry and harel work broke  him down in health anel spirits. In the  midst eif tho struggle he went to'Helena  to visit Mrs. Ward, "whom he hael known  for two years. He urged her to become  his wife. At first she elemurreel, but  finally cemscutcd. The weeleling toe.k  place almost immediately, and the two,  accompanied by thobrielo's little daughter,  came to Now York. For personal reasons  the marriage was kept secret. Mrs. Can-  nem went tei live with a friend at Xo. I2.'_  West Thirty-ninth street, and the husband registered at the Victoria. In some  way the marriage became' known, anel  Mr. Cannon's step-children tele^rapheel  him for a denial of the story. ?no reply  was ever sent. Then they threatened tei  have the tnarriageannulleel on the ground  that the banker's mind was affectetl.  When this became known the anuounci;-  inent of the marriage was niaele anel  the; couple went to live at the Brunswick, where they e;xpect tei remain for  some; time. Mr. Cannon is a hale e.lel gentleman, with bright eyes and a. snowy  beard. He merely laughs when the subject of the derangement of his mind i.s elis-  cusseel. Mrs. Cannon is a grand-tlaughter  of William Davis, whei was iirominent in  Xew York ceininiere;ial circles a generation ago. She is relatoel tei the Van Hems-  sac I ers anel I'liysters.  Nickel and Silver.  Some authoritie.s say that the prices of  nie-kel anrl silver will eventually cross  each either. They argue that nickel is  more useful, is scarcer, and is not so reael-  ily produced, anel that tis silver i.s used  more as a .symbol of wealth its value in  that dire.etion will gradually depreciate,  lit such tin event there is a lemg reiael, because; silver has in it the tradition of agejs,  and the poorer classes of the world woulel  be actuated in its use as the rich have  lieem, and lor a long time the eleiwnwarel  course; weitild be stayed by this semtiment  alone;.  A Freak of Electricity.  Theelee-tric light wires in theceitirt heuiso  at I'ort Townsend. Washington, have b<��-  conie grounded and are eiccasiouiug nei  e;nel of annoyance. The current, in some;  manner or olher, has coiiiiiiunicjite-el with  the water pipes, which resulted in the  pipes throughout the buileliiig besing perforated wilh small burned out hole's. Te>  turn on tin; water while the elee-trie-e-ur-  rt.nt is on will siibjee-t a perseai tei a seve.re  she.ok. This unusual oce:urrene.e is attracting t ho attention of local (.le;ctricians.  The   people of Xelson  will  find themselves without places in  which to do business if prompt actie^n is not taken to provide au adeepiate supply  of water  with  whicli to fight fire.    Had  there  boon  an  adeepiate water supply on  Friday morning   the   International  hotel   would  not  have been destroyed, and two of the most  public-spirited business men in the town  would not now be counting up their losses.  At 0:l~> on Friday morning James Dawson, one of the proprietors of the International  hotel,  discovered   a  fire in the  kitchen, which wasa lean-to on the rear  of the main building.   Owing te. the manager of the water company having turned  off the stop-cock on the waste-pipe at the  hotel, the water in the pipes iu the hotel  was froze, and ueit even a bucket of water  could be hael to dash on  the small   flame.  By the time the fire alarm was responeloel  to by  tho  fire company,   the flames  hael  burst through the roof of the kitchen and  were   rapidly   spreading along  the rear  wall of the main building.    For some rcia-  son, the stream from thej hose  was very  weak, and the' effect on the fire was not  appreciable.' The firemen made an effort  tei pull down the kitchen, but because of  the  hooks not  been   properly  made the  effort ended in failure.   Jn the meantime,  the furniture, fixtures,  and  stock in the  hotel  were   being  removed,   and  -within  three-quarters of an  hour after  the discovery of the fire the roof fell in.  The main building wasa 2-story frame,  with a frontage on Vernon street of oO  feet anel a depth of 50 feet on Stanley  street, it was erected in 18.10. anel aeleled  to in 1892, at a e.ost of _$5000. It was one  of the few hotels in Xelson that was always run as a hotel, not merely as a  saloon. The building and contents wore  insured in tho Guardian for $3000, and the  loss will be fully $8000 more. The hotel  was owned and 'managed by .James Daw-  - son and Bruce Graeldock. For ayear .'past .  Al Hoyt has hael a lease of the elining-  roemi. .Messrs. Da-wson <_o Craeldock have  not decidoel what they will elo. but the  chances ��� are they will ��� rebuild, as they  have been in-offered assistance in several  ways. If they elo rebuild, the new International will be much larger than the oltl  one.  The Fire Department.  TV make the best possible use of the appliances at hanil, a strong, active,. well-  'd rilled fire company must be ''organized.  The membership.of the present company  i.s made up of men not active enough te)  be effective at a fire. There are enough  young men in Xelson to make a crack fire  .company,, if they were but once drilled,  anel to the end that they bo induced to  join the fire company, a meeting will be  hold in tho beiard of trade room e.n Mon-  elay night jit 7:30 o'clock. The executive  e-eininiittee of the fire company���Messrs.  W. J. Wilson. .1. Fred Hume, "anel II. E.

The  waterworks  question   was one  of  the issues in the kite city election at Ktislo,  and the ono tluit probably hael meist to elo  with the election ot" the successl'iil  candidate for mayor.   The successl'iil candidate,  George T. Kane, claimed he e-.oulel ineluce  a private company to take the'matter in  hand, und that as a  man of.more or less  'practical experience ho could bettor protect the city's interest than a man kicking  in that praotic-al experience.    11 is doubtful whether any private -company can be  induced to'put iu a good system t.f waiter-:  ..works  at Kaslo, lor the  reason that tho  number of consumers is limited  and  the  ."rates  allowed   to   be  charyeel  under  tho  charter   rights  of  the   company'owning  the -charter so low   that  private-capital  -would not be  warranted-in ma-king  the  necessary    expenditure.      Ktislo    is    not  near so well  situated for a.water supply  as Nelson, yet the company' owning  the  waterworks at Nelson  would,  if  we are  not greatly mistaken,  willingly  sell  out  today at cost.    A.'n ample supply of water  can be hael tit Nelson by piping a distance  of less  than a  mile.    A like supply can  not   be   had  at   Kaslo  without tapping  Kaslo river, and to obtain   the  retpiired  head for fire purpose, the tapping must be  made at a point consielerably more than a  mile distant from' the town.   At  Nelson  $7000 have already  been expeu'deel,  and  while the supply furnished  is adeeptate  for household uses, it i.s inadequate feu- lire  purposes, as was clearly shown by the In-  ternationa-I hotel lire.    A furtherexpendi-  ture of $25,000 will have to be niaele before  Nelson   has a  good   system   for all  purposes.     This   means   tin   investment   eif  nearly $���'..���.,()()() in  plant  that  rapidly deteriorates.     The   annual   outlay   for   repairs anel the interest on   the  investment  would   be a  sum   far   in  excess  of  what  ceitild be obtained front the rates allowed  to bo collected under the provisions of the  company's   charter.    The;   rates   allowed  under the Ktislo company's e-harter are no  'more libera.! thanalle-weel the; Nelson company, as thts members  ol"   the  legislative  assembly could  not   be made understand  tliat wliile a  water   rate   that would   be  remunerative in cities like.; Vnneoti ver tind  Victoria would   be just  the   opposite   in  towns like Nelson and   Kaslo.    If  Nelson  anel Ktislo ever get good systems eif waterworks it will neit bo elenie by private; companies,   but by   the  towns   in   their cor-  peirate capacity.

That the number ed." elok;gate.s allotted  to each sectiem of West Kootenay. in the  ceinvention to be held tit Nelson on April  12th, i.s fair cannot bo disputed. In the  northern se.otion are the following polling-  places, namely, (Jlacier House, lllecilh-  wtiet, Revelstoke Station, Revclsfoke. Rig  Renel, Mall's Landing. J_ardi.au City, and  Trout Lake City, with a. total of thirteen  delejgates. In the seitillie.i-n se.otion. the  peilliiig-pl.-ices are Hobson, Trail, Waneta,  Tone I Mountain. Nelson, Balfour. Pilot  liny, lUidJly kerfs, with a total of thirl ecu  elelegates. Thecontrnlanel meist peipulous  section has eighteen delegates, I'roin lhe  following polling-places: Pire Valley.  Nakusp. New Denver, Silverton. Three  Porks, Watson. Kaslo. tind Aiiis.woi-th.  That, tlie small or outlying places have  more thau their share of eleslegatejs is not  so. for no one of the outlying places litis  more than one delegate. That the large  and populous towns are; not fairly represented is also untrue.. Nelson anel Nelsem  mining division have; se\-oii delegates:  New 'Denver ami Slocan division have  sove.n ; Kaslo and Ainswortli have seven;  Revelstoke tind Revelstoko mining elivis-  ion have seven. The less populous mining  elivisions have from one to three elelegates.  If the ceiiivention deio.s its duty it will  frame a platftirin of principles, on whicli  its nominee, eir nominees, must stand.  Heretofore, successful cu i id i elates carried out the views anel wishes of their  constituents if they elitl not conllict with  their envn; otherwise they did not. It is  time that tho views and wishes of the people were carriei! entt by their servants, in  which class must be numbered the members eif tho legislative assembly, and in nei  better way can the.se views tind wishes bo  obtained than in a convention made up  of leading men from all parts ol tho elistrict. i.   A   FLUNKEY   NEWSPAPER.  Iii an editorial em the miserably poor  mail facilities given Kootenay, the Vancouver World.says: "If representations  "��� are made to inspector Plotcher and the  "- representative I'or the elistrict, Mr. .J. A.  " Mara, by those who feel tho necessity  "* of a change,'no doubt the grievance  " will bo redressed." As a, matter of fact,  and tho World woulel be aware of tho  fact if it wtis loss a flunkey, the attention  of both inspector Fletcher and Mr. Marti  has been repeatedly called to Kootenay's  miserable mail facilities. This has been  done by the press, by the pulpit, by  grand .jury reports, by resolutions passer!  by boards of trade, by inrli vieluals in their  private capacity, by individuals in their  public capacity; but till to no avail.  As an instance: Last summer the board  of trade resolved that the business interests  of Southern Kootenay required direct mail  service between Kaslo tint! New Denver,  a distance of about thirty miles, on  twenty miles of which there was  then mail service. Insteatl of granting  the demands of the board of traele,  tlio postol'lico inspector established a post-  office-at Three Porks, midway between  New Denver and Watson,' the latter  place already having mail service from  K.-tslo, and ordered all mail matter from  Throe Forks and New Denver destined for  points like Nelsem, Ainsworth,.Kaslo, anel  Watson sent around by way of Nakusp���  although Watson wtis but five miles from  Three Forks and ten miles from New .Denver. And at this late day, The World  1ms tlie gall to state that il ���representation's  tiro made to inspector Fletcher and Mr.  M ira the grievances will, be redressed.  Yes: the people of Kootenay know how  to redress .the grievances; but they know  it can-only be done tit the ballot-box.  A ri-.pokt comes from the coa.st tliat  two more .Richinoue.ls are in the fielel for  member froni -West Kootenay: W. A.  .Jowett of Nelson and .Frank S. Barnard  of Victoria. Mr. Jowett i.s a resident of  the district and might be a winner. Mr.  Bai-nanl is a- non-resident and has not a  ghost of a show. One thing tho people of  West. Kootenay are united on, that is,  that tho member, eir members, must be  actual residents of the elistrict. Men who  spend their earnings, or income, in . Victoria tiro not wanted; . neither tire tlie  men who only live iu Ke.eitouny when  they are broke.

Meld for nearly four months in, the  equatorial doldrums, until her provisions  were e-xhtittsted ami her crew on the; verge  of sttirva I ion. was the terribli! experience  of the .Anierican ship I'.dw.-trd O'Rrien,  whicli had long been given up as lost.  She left Hastings' mill. Vancouver, e.arly  iu I JoctMiibor.

It  was learned that she had made a fine run  down the Pacilic and around the Heirn,  but when near the equator had been  caught in one of the; droaeled calms there  prevalent. For three months she remained within half ti mile eif whore the  calm was first struck, tint! eluring till that  time there was not enough of wind to (ill  the lightest of her sails. Finally a small  current, probably caused by a storm many  miles away, server! to senel her slowly out  oi* the locality which had sei long threatened to boa place of doa tli for all aboard.  On this current the ship drifted for another nion'th. Then a welcome breeze  carrieel her back into the paths of navigation.

Tliough  tlio word is usually applied to the equatorial calms, the region of the doldrums  varies iu breadth from sixty to several  hunelre.el miles anel shifts its extreme limits tit dilTerent seasems between latitude  .". degrees south anel hi degrees north. It  is overhung at a great height by a permanent belt of clouels, gathered by oppeis-  ing currents of tho traele wiuels.  Beauty Among English Women.  Last year's beauties are reigning agtiin  this season   in   London.

JJut the  sensation'ol tlie season was princess.Helcne d'Orleans, who is  beau ti lu I oven beyond   the; privilege of a  princess.    Women of  tlie   mielelle  classes'  are sa-iel to be much handsomer now than  they were twenty yetirs ago in   il.iigla.nd,  taller, bettor  formed, anel   more brilliant  in coloring.    The. ty pi era! Fnglish girl is as.  elnintily pink anel   white anel  modest as  Burns's  ���"crimson-tipped   ���flower."     Tlio  typical Fnglish wile is a rather  colorless  and   uninteresting   type  with  the   pink  failed out e>f her cheeks,   the gold elullee!  to dun brown in her hair, the blue dulled  to'gray in her eyes, anrl after this  conies  tho blow/.y sttige, particularly  with   women greatly aeldicteel   tei the heavy burgundies and clarets e.f the Fnglish clinner.  JJut-owing to international marriage, this  new type of beauty, with stronger coloring united to the line English physique, i.s  be'coining  more and  more  common, anel  .varies   the general    average   of   Fnglish  beauty several degrees.  The Output of Gold.  Some sanguine men in Colorado believe  that the output ol gold this year will bo  100 per.cent greater than it was last year.

We think there will be .ISO  miles up and down the country thoroughly  prospected just as soon as the snow gets  off in the springaud men can comfortably  live out of doors, ti-nel .the result of that  will be the finding ol'ti gretit many mines,  and the weirking of ti gretit many that are  already found.

HOW   IT   ALL   ENDED.  Haulapre of Horses.  T. H. Brigg, an Fnglish civil engineer,  ina lecture before some teamsters in Chi-  eago on the haulage of horses, laid down  ���the pnipe.sition that a horse elid many  times more \vork in carrying his own  weight than if he were, harnessed to a  load. By tt series of simple experiments  he showeel that a horse bearing elown on  his muscles in standing used an effort,  fremi whitii he wtis relieved, tei tin extent,  if hitcheei to a wagon. .If tiie shafts pf a  wagon were et'tiippeel with an antenna-tic  spring the horse was further relieved e>f  his weight and enabled to use sej much  more of his strength in pulling his load.  A wagon fitted with .an automatic spring  shaft was used to illustrate this. I.'ict.ures  weve thrown on a screen, showing a horse  endeavoring vainly to elraw 2000 pounds  up a grade. The following pictures  showetl that if -"200 pounds were placed on  the horse's back he wtis able tej elraw bhe  load with ease. Fxperinients, eif which  the pictures were the evidence, had been  made in Lonelon, the lecturer stiid. The  applicatiem was maele to bhe.se present that  a horse neeeled tei have its weight in-  creaseel te; haul a leiael up a hill. The lecturer, tei further illustrate the peiint, took  a boy on his back .nuel then pulle-el about  tiie stage ti he.avy man, who had previ-  emsly easily drnggetl him fenwarel by  pulling a rope held by Mr. Brigg. Interesting figures were given relative to a  horse's pulling power em ie-c anel the in-  e-rc'iise in the percussion on his feet made  by extra weight of harness. The latte;r,  the speaker said, meant that two extra  pounds of percussion followed each extra  pound of harness. Tho blows elelivered  on a horse's feet iu travelling on the steiny  I iii veinents were eepial to the result tluit  would be produced if the animal wtsrc laid  on his back tind his he.ol's pounded by  four strong inch.

She advertised herself as <-i '���blonde, full of  fun, affectionate, anel whe) longed to be-  ce.ine the reigning star in some bachelor's  ma trillion ial firmament." They exchanged  photeigraphs, anel a peculiar coincidence  occurred, as ejich separately alleged.    By  some  inexplicable mistake e.r otherwise,  tho pictures were of such ji character that  it would be difficult to recognize either eii'  the two  confiding  victims eif Cupid.    Jt  .seems that etich sent the photograph of  some other  person  whose  facial appearance was a decided improvement on the  eeiuntoiiance it was intended to represent.  Subseejuently the   laely came i'mm  the  east tit the expense of Mr. Andrews, to be  the star in the firmament.    Mr. Andrews,  it is said, in very glowing terms pictured  the magnificence of his farm, the beauties  of his palatini  mansion, nob to speak of  his  livestock  grazing over hi.s   thousand  hills.     The   description    tallictl    exactly  with bhe laely's itleal.    Very unexpectedly  she came out to look at the eibject of her  adoration.    She visited Mr. Andrews, and  found him at work in a small cabin cooking  breakfast.    Neither he  nor  the sur-  roiiudiugs   agreed   with   just   what   the  young lady anticipated, but matters were  arrangeel  anel   a   wetleling  cleiteel   the romance.  Two or three yetirs later a succession of  family difficulties resulted in Mrs. Andrews leaving her romantically acquired  liusbaml tei seek a divorce anel half of the  community property. Without much  trouble she severotl the bonds eif weillock  anel got a judgment of $1000 anel etists as  a compcusatieni for tin; heroic sacrific she  underwent in inarryingMr. Andrews. In  time the? sheriff levied upon and offeree!  I'or sale JMr. Andrews' farm of 100 acres.  In the meantime the plaintiff had a ilis-  agreenient with her attorneys about  their fee, anel they promptly liled a lien  lor $200a.gainst the .jtitlgnient. The prop  erty was hiel in for .$1000. the bidder paying the sheriff $.".0 to bind the bargain  until the elay folleiwing. After listening  to the lady's tale of misfortune the bidder  became convinced .that the. attorney's fee  .wtis exliorbitant, and without further  consultation paitl the balance, $1550, directly tei Mrs. Andrews. .Before he could  get ji eleed lie wtis compelled to geo to law  and pay the attorney's fee of $200 in atl-  elition, and then Mr. Andrews' minor  children'stepped in and claimed one-half  of the property as the estate of their deceased mother. Mr. Andrews complicated  matters also by homesteadingiiis portion  of the property. Jn the prex-eedings to  evict the .tenants the superior court: decided adversely to the bieider in.  The. supreme court's decision leaves the  interested parties 'standing as follows:  Mrs. Andrews has her divorce anel monetary compensation amounting to $1000:  Andrews, too, has a. divorce, the jtitlgnient satisfied and is in full possession anel  title of his property," ^mincumbered; the  bieleler in has about $1000 worth of experience and a peior e_pinion of wieleiws.

A New York Gambling- House Run Exclusively by Women.  It was Billy Deutsch, the kin^of gam-  biers, who saiel: " Where a man has a  real passion for gambling1 it is far xvorse  than a passion for elrink. A man will  stoop lower to gamble than tei drink. Besides, the dvunkavd is irresponsible al'tei.-  a I'eu-drinks, anel the gambler must have  his wits. For a few coppe.rs a man can  gen,a drink : but I'or the: gambler- a ele.llar.  what is it? (���'ambling' works up (.he brain,  the eyes, the nerves ��� all. I ,-iin not  preaching, (.'ambling is a disease - Lhe:  haielestin the worltl tei cure; harder lIi.-iu  consumption. But it is a singular fact  the greatest ga in biers on earth are  rwome_i. They are born gamblers. The  disease of gambling takes a .streinget- heilel  upon them Limn it ever gets upon a man.  I have trietl to understand it, but I cannot."  Few people arc aware tluit there are  female gamblers iu Xew York who play  games of chance with greater persistence  and more nerve tlum any male gambler in  town. These women underslanel every  game of chance, from thn.e-c-ard meinle to  the most intricate r|iiest.iein of poker.  They delight in a horse race, revel in a dog  light, anel would seitnier set; twei roosters  dig at each other than eat a good elinner.  The passion for gambling is born in them.  They inherit I'm in their I'oi'uiiioIIk.i-s. . It  is a disease that is incurable and that  takes a stronger holel upon its victims  year after year.  Jt has been within the past few years  that gambling among women has become  so prominent tis to cease almost to be extraordinary. Twei years ago there was  not a regular gambling house for women  in New York. Within the past five  months, however, there has been opened  on a creiss street, neit very far frenn a  most aristocratic hotel, a palatial  home for female gamblers. It is a -I-story  brown stone house. A broad sloop leaels  up to a. big double entrance, barret I with  heavy oak doors. The person win. rings  the bell is met by a trim ceilored girl whe>  "will listen to what she litis to say, anil if  the visitor is found to be all right she is  admitted tei tlie vestibule.  No men tire ever allowed, under any circumstances, to penetrate further than  the .vestibule. Tlie house is owned by a  ���woman and is run by a woman. Tlie servants are all .women, even to the menials  -who make tlie (ires and elei the heavy  -work about the house. No one i.s nlleiweel  te) enter unless she is known, or unless arrangements have already-been maele for  lier visit by those who tire known.  The woman who enters the vestibule  finds that ti ground-glass'" door blocks her  Avay into the hall.'beyond. ��� When this  door opens the visitor steps-into a hall  severely plain in its decorations. Te) the  left is the parlor, which runs the entire  length of the-lirst floor. It is gorgeously  fitted up. Heavy velvet carpets hitlc the  floor. Mirrors running' from the floor tei  the ceiling are on every siele. Heavy curtains shield the whitlows." The great  chandeliers which hang from the ceiling  are of polished brass tind cut glass. Rare  marble statues deprive otherwise gloenny  corners of their "sonibreness. I'Jxpensive.  paintings dob the walls between the mirrors. A great clock stantls between Lhe  two windows opening to the rear of the  house. A picture of .Mepliistopheles is  blazoned on the glass' face of the clock.  He holds in his right-hand four aces. The  ;je)ker of Lhe deck of care I.s is dancing a jig  on his forked tail. At his feet is a pile of  gold. This is the only suggestiem in the  parlor of the true nature of the house.  The women tarry iu the parlor only  long enough to tell tei one of the servants  the game they wish to play and then follow the servant to tluit room. All the  servants of the house tire: colored women.  They wear simple gowns of plain black.  Avith small white-laee caps on their heads.  At the head of tho stairs is a -smtill room  about twelve feet si|mire, where: the  visitor, if she wishes, i-an leave her hut  and cloak in charge of a servant. The  main room on the second Moor is half as  large tis the parlor. It is called "Llie I'nro-  j'oom." Three heavy sets of eiirlains bar  tlie windows. The light i.s supplied from  eleven incandescent lamps arranged in a  circle, like a ring of diamonds, about a  rod of gold. There are twei faro layouts,  one at either enel eif the room. The dealers sit behind the boarels on high stools.  The boards tire only about thm: feet from  the floor, so that a player sitting in a  chair can reaelily see all'that is done. A  large colored women, weighing perhaps  two hundred peinnels. has charge of the  room. There tire two ileiors leading into  the hall.  Jnimeeliately back of this room i.s a  smaller room known as -"the little, poker-  room." There are four tables in this  room; ejaeh table litis a e-eilored female attendant. The tables ha ve circular lops  about four feet in diameter, covered with  green cloth. Neit more: than live players  tire allowed to play at a table.  The back stairs run on up to tin* second  floor. In the corner of this lantlingis a  marble figure of Venus, with a green band  painted around the neck and au ace of  .spades between the breasts. The third  floor i.s arrangeel elifl'erenl ly from the  second floor. The; small room at flic, head  of the freint stairs is tt I oild-room. The  room adjoining it is knenvn as '"the moult*  parlor." There are no chairs in I his room.  Jn   place   of   wall    paper   the*   walls are  The word "inoiite" j  iu tu-es. Then* tire j  three inonfe layouts, one on each side of  the room save that em which is lhe entrance. The juggler of the cards stands  with her back to the wall. The* players  stand in i'i out, of the board beyond a chalk-  covered  with  cure Is.  is spelleel on the: wa I  line, which is elrawn on the fleien- two feet  frenn the board. There are) only two attendants in this room.  The largest roeim em this Moor adjoins  the nitiiito-rooni. It is kntiwnasthe "mis-  e.-elhineous room. It has nine tables in it,  which may be used for any games desired.  The remaining room ou his fleior is ti  very smtill roemi in the front of the' house.  .Only the best kneiwn of the players tire  allowed to enter it. It is known as "tlie  millionaire mansion." It is in it that the  largest gjimes in the house are playeel. If  several players wish tei pluy a game that  practically has no limit, they get this  room. It. has two hi bios and seven chtiirs.  It is the most sumptuously-fitted room in  the heiuse. The tables tiro of carved ma-  hogaiiy. The walls are decorated with  beautiful pictures- of nude figures. A  pie:ture of a iiuele woman is painted on  the ceiling.  The basement of the heiuse i.s uniquely  arrangeel. The front reieini is the: kitchen.  None of the guests ever enters it. A long  hallway runs from the basement i.ntrance  iu lhe front of the heiuse unelor the stoeip  back Lei the roar. Many of the gueists  enter the house through this basiMiient  eloor. The next menu tei the kitchen is  the: restaurant. The finest products of  the market aroserveel there free of charge  to the players. There are two big tables  anel three small ones in that room. All  liquors tiuel wines, except champagne, are  free. Champagne costs $:"> a bottle.  Cigarettes are heaped about the tables on  small silver plti.tters. Hack of the restaurant is the snioking-rooiii. It is a small  room lilleel with cushions anil divans.  There is tt large silver tray on a small  table in the center of the room, which is  filled with the various brands of cigarettes. Over the entrance are the words,  ���"It litis till gone up in smoke."  Back of the smoking-room is the most  important room in the place. It is a, little  cubby heile not over ten feet sepiare. in  one corner is a big safe, on which are  pain tee I in red letters the wort Is. ".Monte  Carlo- try tei break it." The room is the  office eif the proprietor. Any guest having any complaint to make about alleged  unfair pluy. eliscourteenis treatment on  the part of an attendant, or discomfort  due tei the management of Lhe house, goes  elirect Lo this office anel states her grievance. The woman in the office is plump  anel petite, with a! clear complexion, blue  eyes, ami blonde hair. She is known as  .Madame Hart. She listenspatiently to till  complaints, tintl if the heiuse is in the  wrong the matter is speeelily set right. If  the guest is wrong Madame Mart never  tails to promptly tell her so. When any  player exhausts the funels of one of the  Layouts up-stairs she gets a check on  .Madame Hart. This check is ti square  piece of pasteboard which mails:    "Monte  Carlo pav   to bearer $ .account table  No.- -."  All the tables in the house go by numbers. The banker atone of the tables fills  in the amount due the player as well as  the table number. _Mtidii.melb.irt promptly  pays the check.  All the dealers iii charge of the tables  are dressed alike. Their gowns resemble  in many respects Lhe dresses of the col-  oreel servants. They wear nothing on  their heads, however. Their gowns are  eif plain black without pockets. The  sleeves are tight-fitting and extend only  tei the 'elbows. Their forearms anel hands  are bare. The gowns button in the back  tind are severely plain in front. This does  away with tiny opportunity to smuggle  cards out of -sight. These dealers range  in age I'roin twenty to thirty. None of  the eleiilers ever speaks to a playersavein  re.ganl Lo Lhe game:.  The class of women who I'requont this  house tire   far above the ordinary run of  female residents  eif  I his city.    .Many of  them  are women eif position  tis  well  jis  wealth.   They are women whose husbands  are familiar iigures about town anel who  tire well known by name to the majority  of New Yorkers. _ There is little vulgarity  or profanity or risky conversation among  the women.    They go tei this house much  as a   person   suffering  from  rheumatism  woulel go to the Hot .Springs in Arkansas.  Both are suffering from practically incurable elisetises.    It  is interesting to study  the* women whei frct|iieiit this heiuse frenn  the time they enter it until they leave it.  .Most of them  elrive. to within a block of  the.place ami  walk hurriedly aud   nervously down  the street, run up  the steps,  anel fairly plunge inside the door when it  is opened.    They rush to oneof the tables  much as a thirsty man would  hasten tei tt  spring of e-eieil  water.    Kagc.rly they eipen  tiie'ir pocket -books and place their moncv.  Their eyes  brighten,  their cheeks   flush,  their  linger^  tremble, as  they tiwa.it  the  result.    As I hey play on their demeanor  <-haiige*s: they become e-eiol anil  calm.     It  is only  when  they win   heavily, or when  I hey lose a great   ele*al, that they flush or  pah*.    Ordinarily they sit as if they weve  .-it  an al'lerrnooii tea. and  when (hey have  playeel lo their con I cut they (piietly le-ti ve  the roe ii ii and epiit I he house.   Sometimes,  however, eiue may see a woiimii hurrying  away pale ami I re-iubling.    She may have  lost the money which meant her husband's  honor, or again she may have  won until  sin.* was dazed  by her good fortune..    But  tis ti rule the   female gambler  plays her  game,   whether she   win   or lose, with a  cooliii���<--. anil   a   tranquility  which it be-  hooves   the  male  gamble*!- to take ceigni-  zane-e of and to imitate.  Within the past year or two the' growth  of | he vice of gambling among women has  been marked. Shopgirls, telephone: girls,  and others of their class, who cannot  alTiii'd lo risk much, play I'or small stakes  among themselves. In some of I he stores  and great I'aclori.-s of this city, whore  hundreds of girls tire employee), shrewd  women make lheir livelihood by running  perambulating policy shops and walking  pools. The great trouble, though, with  women, is l hal. they allow sentiment to  inllueiiee their play, hoi- instance, in a  horse-race, rather than back the best  lioi-.e. (hey play the nidiint eif the liand-  -oinesl jockey: and il is this Failing that  caused liilly I leu I.seh lo su p|ileincn I bis  remark-; which apix-arat I he eipeuing of  llii- -lory with these words; " Women  are -ciil iiiieiiitd.
