AMERICAN     BEEF     CATTLE     MUST     BE  '   SLAUGHTERED   ACROSS   THE    LINE.  This   la   Not   Because   tho   Provisions   of  tho  Law Will Wot Poi'iriit Oattlo Being Brought  ,ln Allvo, but Simply Bocrtuso it is Policy  Not to Allow it.  ' The attempt made by local butchers to  have tliu Animals Qnti>nriLino Herniations susj-endod, so as to |iennil beef  cattle to bo sliippod from tlio United  States to Nelson during the winter, has  ended in failure. This is not beonu.sjtho  law is unchangeable, but siinj>ly because  the authorities at Ottawa do not care a  copper'whether the, peoplu on Kooteuuy  lake starve or not. . Mr. Mara, who rojiro-  sents this district in the Dominion parliament, telegraphed Mr. Bowoll to have the  regulations sus])endod, knowing that that  gentleman, a.s minister of customs, had  boon through tlio lake country, and was  therefore acquainted with its geographical position. But Mr. Howell happens to  be a rabid hater of Americans, and'-it is  supposed his hatred also extends to  American beef. As parliament moots  this month, our people expect Mv. Mara  to secure'what they have asked for by  making a statement of our physical condition aud geographical position to inin-  ' is tors who'are' not so intolerant as Mr.  ��� BoavoII. -  .In tho meantime, enough cattle have  ' been brought in from Kettle river to sup-  ��� "ply the demand I'or a month.

As'the question of quarantine is  ��� one wholly within the control of tho department of agriculture,   your  telegram  was referred to that depi'rtnient.

Parmeloo, Fsq.���Sin:   T have to  inform you in reply to the accompanying'  reference that there is no provision in the  Animals   Quarantine Regulations  which  'would admit of American neat cattle entering Canada at any point to be slaughtered in bond.'".'The answers which  the  . department has uniformly given to questions such   as   contained  in   the accompanying telegram have been to the effect  that the slaugiter must take place on the  American side of the border and tlie meat  ��� - products 'subsequently brought in. This  question Was considered some months ago.  by tlier minister's of agriculture jincl customs on somewhat similar representations from British Columbia, and the niin-  ".:; "ister of agriculture', took tlie question to  coiinciI,..AV*ith.tiie result, as he informed  me, that the .opinion'' of his colleagues'was  against the passing of any order'to''relax  the present quarantine regulations. N.The  provisions of the Animal ���-Contagious-  Diseases Act Avould admit of the passing  of an order in council to authorize the  slaughter of animals in.. quarantine, if  such, as a question .of "safety and policy,  should be thought advisable.  ���-.;���' .:. .">'    ".,���;"'��� J. -.Lowe, ';  ,...:. .<:.. Deputy -Minister-of Agriculture.  The Dardanelles Difficulty.  *E. E. Coy was in Nelson yesterday, and  when asked as to the difficulty over the  Dardanelles mine said that he secured the  injunction to protect himself until the  courts;decided the question of ownership'  of the property.; He claims a half interest  ,in the ground, and has deeds to three-'  ..sixteenths'of it.' He says that -John C.  Davenport, who lias a bond on nine-sixteenths of the ground, is, by doing costly  and imjirolitable work, trying to '���freeze"  liim into signing a bond'for his interest.  While he secured tlie injunction, ho did j  not serve it for the reason that he had not  th* heart to turn tlie men who were at  work out in the winter. Mr. Davenport,  who i.s at tho mine, promised Mr. Coy to  meet him at Kaslo in a few days, wlien,  it is expected, the holders of the bond will  be in from Colfax and Tacoina and an  amicable understanding arrived at.  Trying, to Bust Judge. Bond.  By 'telegraphic advices from Seattle,  Steve Bailey and tho boys who discovered  the Noble Five group of claims in Slocan  district are after judge Bond for $800,000  for breach of contract. Judge Bond i.s  the man who went into Slocan district  early this spring1 with great expectations  tind a retinue of experts and came out  later with a poor opinion of himself and  the country. The following appeared in  tlie Spokane Review as a special from  - Seattle, and . is dated December 80th:  "Hiram G. Bond, a well-known capitalist  of this city, was sued today in the United  States court for over $250,000 for alleged  breach of contract. The suit was brought  by.S. S. Bailey, a resident of Oregon. He  alleges that on January 8th, 181)2, lie en  tered   into   a   Avritten   agreement ,with  Bond, which the latter authorized him to  procure for him (Bond),  a. bond   or   an  agreement for the conveyance of'certain  mining claims in West Kootenay district  in British Columbia, which belonged to  William M.  Ilcnucssy,  John L.  Seaton,  Frank AV. Flint, tind John M. MdGuigan.  The price to bo paid Avas.nol to exceed  $300,000,  and Bond Avas to pay $25,000 in  cash upon making the bond. Bailey claims  that .when the deed to tho property was  made to Bond the hitter was to coin'oy to  him  ti one-fourth- interest in it for   his  services in negotiating the sale.   Bailey  made a trip to St Paul, saw (he oAv'ners of  lho   property   aud   had  them   make   an  agreement to convey the property.   Upon  his return to Seattle with tho agreement  he   says   Bond    refused    to   accept    it  and*   to    pay    the     $25,000.      In     consequence      tlie       deal      wtis      stopped.  Bailey   claims   that     the    property   is  worth $1,000,000  and.that   lie has "been  damaged   to  the amount'of $250,000 by  73ond's failure to live up to his agreement.  He further-claims  that Bond  agreed  to  pay one-half of his traveling expenses hi  working up the sale,  and asks $1250 on  this   account.   Wiliiam    If.   Hennessey,  .John  L.  Seaton,   Frank  W.    Flint,   mid  Jolni McGuigan, tho OAvnersof the mining  claims,   have   also brought- suit against  Bond to recover $25,000 for his failure to  pay them that amount upon their*making  tin agreement to convey him tho property.  PACK. ANIMALS   KILLED.  An   Incident  .of   an   Out-of-tlie-Way   Mining*  ��� Camp,  lievolstoke      Star.     December     24 th:  On    November   7th,    George    Laf on lie's  pack train of eleven animals left Revelstoko for the Big Bend with the last load  of suppliesjthis season.    It has proved to  be their last  trip, tho whole train having  to bo destroyed for lack of food.    On tho  road  up  they found the trail almost impassable in places, and seven animals with  their packs fell  into ravines whilst crossing  bridges,  one   of them   breaking   its  nock. There wore three men Avith the pack  train���Louis Mason, Dave Ferguson, and  Pete Levocquo���Mr. La forme having gone  to Kamloops for cattle wliich ho intended  driving to Big Bend.    Returning hero five  flays after the others had left. Lu forme  started tit once with tho cattle and overtook   tlie   pack   train just  before   they  reached   their   destination.     Soon   after  their arrival  snow  fell to the depth of  about 18 inches, but the pack train animals  managed to surupo it -awa,\ sutticlonlly to  pick ti scanty living oil'.the dvy  winter  grass beneath.    The cattle were killed and  the meat frozen and packed to the mines  ou   tho other side of French creek.   By  this time the snow wjis over three feet  deep, and there wtis no feed for the animals.    No timev.wa.s:lost iu making a start  for Revelstoke, but the\-~ only came fh'e  miles when they found the attempt hopeless and turned  back.   Then all the men  working  in   the   Bond   turned   out  and  trampled a path to the river, so that tAA*o  of them-might  take the boat and come  down for hay aud feed; but the river was  full of ltirge drift ice, and tiie project had  PAID   FROM   THE   GRASS -BOOTS.  A   Slocan   Prospect   that   is Being Developed  Into a Mine.   -  The 800 tons of ore tluit have been mined  and shipped from  tho Freddy Lee, a Slocan prospect, Avill come pretty near paying every dollar that has boon expended  in purchasing and developing that claim.  The development work,  aside i'roin  the  buildings and the tramway,  consists  of  three tunnels about 2.50 foot apttrf.'   The  - upper, or No. 1, tunnel is inabout 150 feet;  the middle, or No. 2, about 250; and the  lower, or No. .'3, about 80.    In the latter a  shaft was sunk 50 feet to tho ore body, on  which a drift has been run 50 feet. About  200  foot from  tho mouth  of the middle  tunnel an upraise is being made to connect with tho upper tunnel; it i.s now ad-  A'.'inced 50 feet.    There is 2 foot pf o��'e|u  the upper.tunnel,'*. 21 'feefc'i'/f'tho "niidclil?,  and   3  feet    in' tho   lower   ono.    Ore is  being stopod from the lower tunnel alone.  The   tramway   is 2700 feci long and   is  operated with' a three-quarter inch rope.  Tiie boats carry 12 sacks at a load, and  five   minutes are   taken   up   in .sending  doAvn a load.    A steel cable i.s now at the  mine, and as soon as now and larger boats  can be made it will take tho place of the  hemp rope.    Some twenty-five men in all  are employed around tho works.  Mining-Notes.  The ono half interest in the Big Bertha  sold by Messrs. Temple Ac Riley a lew  weeks since Avas at the rate of $50,000 for  the property, and not $25,000 as inadvertantly stated about four weeks since.  XV. L. Smith, who built the Freddy Lee  snow tramway, and litis ti contract to  build a car tram at the same place when  the snow leaves the ground, was iu Ktislo  Monday last. He reports line bodies ot  ore in all three of the tunnels and the property never looking finer than al present.  By all accounts, Dr. li. C. Kilbourno of  Seattle made a. lucky hit when he bonded  tho Northern Belie from Robert Jackson  for $10,000 last fall. Lane C. Gilliam of  Ktislo visited the property last week, and  states it is looking immense. In a wide  vein there is two foot of solid ore, from  which Mr. Gilliam states pieces weighing  from 2000 to 5000 pounds can be quarried  out. This two feet is perfectly free from  waste.

Boats are still running on the Columbia  between the mouth of Kootenay river tind  Northport, and if the present fine weather  continues   there  will  be no  interruption  this  Avinter.    On   her   last  trip   up   the  Lytton came through with about sixteen  tons of freight and   twenty  passengers.  She  got au  early start from  Northport  anil arrived at the mouth of tho Kootenay  early  in   the afternoon,   the   passengers  arriving in Nelson at half past 5 o'clock.  Although  the  river is not falling, a line  had to bo  used at  four  places.    Oni'tain  Troup wont down on tho Lytton with (he  intention of putting  the Columbia on be-  betwoen Northport and the mouth of the  Pond d'Oniillo.  to transport supplies I'or  the force engaged  in  building tlie bridge  across the I "end  d'Oreille and in grading  the extension of the Spokane and Northern railway.   Of the freight expected-  some thirty carloads in all-five carloads  are cement  for the  bridge.    The  freight  had  not arrived, however, and   captain  Troup returned on the Lytton,    No difficulty will bo had in running (heColumbia  up to the mouth of the Tend d'Oreille, as  tho stage of water is good.  The Silver King Sale.  NotAvithslanding the report that Wins-  Ioav Hall tind John McDonald had arrived  at Spokane, these gentlemen are still in  Glasgow. Tho deal isstoadily progressing  and will, it is said, bo completed as soon  as all the records are received in the old  country���or as.soon tis tho canny Scots can  got on the ground to work the property,  along in April say.  ^.*i_a .'; iiiaflu mitge-  ing from $080 to $007 gold per tou. .Not  being satisfied, they took a sample  amounting to a sack of ore from three  different faces on the load.

A Lucky Coon.   -.-.���'.-  "Nearly ..reVer man 'iii Kaslo is. a born  gambler, anil those that Avere not born so:  -wish they wore. A well known hotelman  is of the latter ''class. He is from Nova  Scotia, where till kinds of gambling is  looked on as an-'unpardonable sin, but for  -a time lived at Ainsworth,- where (Iraxv  .poker was sometimes indulged in. Since  taking up his residence at Kaslo, however,  he has become quite a sport, and occasionally opens a "snap" for the boys. The  other day he started a crap game, with  $-1 in the bank. A big black coon was his  only"player,' and he was. lucky. In about  four minutes the $1 had changed from  "inside" money to "outside" money, and  the: banker had to become a "producer."

No Additional Charge to be Made.  The Canadian Pacific management.sometimes forgets that corporations have no  souls antl does the right thing by its patrons. When navigation closed on the  upper Columbia considerable freight  consigned to parties in the Kootenay lake  country wtis caught at Revelstoke.' Tho  freight had to be sent around by way of  Tacoina'and the Northern Pacific, and tho  railroad company now notifies consignees  that all freight that 'was'shipped from  points oast of Port Arthur will bo delivered tit Nelson tit the same rate tis if it  lmd been sent down the river from Revelstoko. So far none of the freight litis yet  boon delivered, but it is'somewhere between Tticomti tind Northport.  Changes in a Bank's Management.

"DO    .IUSTICI-]    II**    TIIK     I1KAVHN.S     PALI,."'  To the Editor of The Tribune:   1 have  been reading carefully   the editorials  of  our    Kooteiniy    hike    papers    upon   the  present managenient of the steamers of  tho Columbia dc Kootenay Steam Navigation  Company,  and   1   have come to llie  conclusion  that  the  habit of fault-finding   and   complaining,   with  or  without  cause, has so fully permeated the natures  of our editors and merchants, that  it  is  impossible  for   them   to   appreciate  the  great exertions that are being made by  captain Troup and  his staff of officers oh  the steamers of this company to forward  the ltirge accumulation of freight which  is now piled up til tiie llie terminus ot the  Spokane   Ac   Northern.    Even   your   last  week's   article,    while   presenting,   in   a  feeble manner, the company's side of tho  case, did it in so grudging a manner, and  with  such   adverse   comments   iu   other  parts of   Tiik   Tkijji'NI*:,   that,  it simply  amounted to "damning with faint praise."'  Now,"I-'tun tin old stetiiubotitniaii, and  .'can fully realize'the groat risks which tho  company run of -losing ti steamer during  each trip, at the present stage of water in  the Columbia, and I do not believe there  is another steamboat company on tho Pa- j  ci fie Coast which Avould ���continue to-run I  their  boats   under   similar   unfavorable |  circumstances and Avith no-bettor.remuneration than this company receives for  their   labor.     The   steamer   Lytton5 tit  present i.s only able to carry about seven-  toon toils  of .freight  per  trip.    On   ordinary  merchandise the  rate   is about $5,  tind on hay is loss than $-! per ton.   There  tiro throe places over Avhich it is necessary  to lino the boat, and a  much 'larger number of deck-hands is required than during  the   summer-��� months.   The    trip    from  Northport to tho mouth of the Kootenay  river, which in .the good stage of  water  requires ti few hours,  now takes a   whole  day, and in. the 'recent cold snap nearly  tAvo days wore consumed in making  the  voyage.    The writer saw the line part on  one occasion within the last two weeks,  and   the  loose end barely escaped'being  wound up in tho wheel.    Had it done so  tho Lytton would have' drifted down on  the most convenient and rugged rocks in  the  neighborhood,   or   perhaps   through  tho Little Dalles, and   her gentle whistle  would have boon heard no-more during  tho present'season, if ever.    At the lower  Tincup rapids tho other night, while lining over tiie riffle after dark, the steamer  " took a sheer" and came within an ace of  being    piled   up ��� on    the   opposite    bar.  The passengers on  board were in a slate  of  blissful   ignorance of  the  risk   which  they ran,  and when they reached Nelson  tit ii o'clock on   the same night some of  them wore complaining of the "bad management of a steamboat company  who  would compel their passengers to make a  portage, in  tho dark," etc.    Then, again,  some of the shippers by this line complain  of the charge of $2.50 for transferring tho  freight from the steamer to the cars and  vice versa.    Why, I have hoard sonic of  them  stiy   within   the   last   twenty-four  hours tluit they would rather give double  freight than have their goods fail to come  through, and. in one instance I know that  $20  per  ton  was offered  as a   bonus  to  hurry a carload in advance of others.  Now, I happen to know tluit the charge  for transferring freight has never .vet  boon made upon a, single lot of ore shipped outwards, and the rates of down  freight have been made very moderate  upon ores tis far a.s Spokane. I know,  also,'that at one point just .above Sheen  creek the steamers, when loaded with  ore, have on each of the last two or three  trips dragged on the bar with their  wheels, to the imminent risk of tearing  them to pieces. 1 know that iu either of  the throe places, when it is necessary to  use the steam capstan to drag the steamer  over, the accidental stoppage of the capstan   (which i.s a thing always liable  to  Nows  Sifted Down by The Tribune's Regular  Correspondent.

Although rather late in the flay, attention should be called to a paragraph that  appeared in the Victoria Weekly Colonist  of  November 18th (which has only just  reached   us), entitled   the   "Elephantine  Joker."   This contains tho usual wonderful  amount of ignorance   or  intentional  misrepresentation  displayed by the Victoria and Vancouver press.    It.slates that  the  Nakusp trail cost $1000 or so nnd ti  sleigh  road   would cost $5000, iu till $0000.  which in till probability wrmld be wasted,  as   the same  grades would  not do'for ti  wagon   road.

The   committee   claims   that  -the  wagon road litis been as great a benefit to  individual lot owners as it has becu'to,individual business men,  and as, great   a  benefit to the new-comer as it has-been to  tho old-timer.

There i.s another ���<  clement, doing business on .sufferance, that  received a ltirge share of the mono}' sjjeut   ���  in building the road that refuses To contribute    a    cent.   This   clement  should   ���  either   be made contribute or be made  move on.   The road has upbuilt   Ktislo,  and  the cost of its  construction  should  not be borne by a" fexv citizens.   The road  was built at small cost jier mile, and  no  jiortion of that cost should fall on workingmen or business men  who furnished  su|)|)lics.

Already'work on a valuable property in Slocan district lias been stopped  because of an injunction issued by "judge  Walkem in the interest of a man -who, it  i.s said, claims a half interest in the mine  because he furnished one of the several  original locators with $!0 worth of grub.  The injunction was issued in Victoria,  hundreds of miles distant from the mine,  and, it is said, on ex parte evidence. The  lawless element that drifts over to our  camps from the United States stands in fear  of our courts. Would it not be well for the  courts to give the mine-litigant element  so strong a dose of British justice that  they would only be too.glad to return to  the country from -whence they came?

The  people  at New Denver   complain  Lhat their present mail facilities are..not  at all satisfactory.    The mails arrive irregular and are dispatched irregularly.   On  inquiry   at.  the  Nelson  office,  the   postmaster stated Lhat his instructions are to  forward the mail evevy two weeks.    During December three mails xveve forwarded  to   New   Deliver,   but  only  one   was  received  from   that,  plai*e.    It is said   that  mails leave New Denver so that the   incoming niii'l is met at the  foot of Slocan  lake, wliich occasions Jung delays in transmitting answers to business letters.    Till-;  Tl'llU'NK is of opinion  LhaL Lhe New Denver  mail   should   be sent  iu   by  way  of  Kaslo. instead of by way of Slocan river.  At present, a  stage is run daily between  Kaslo and Watson, and Hughes's rawhide  train    runs   daily   between   Watson   and  Three Forks, the latter place  being only  live miles  from   New  Denver.    The  Sexv  Denver  mail   could   be made   up at and  forwarded    from   Nelson   on   Saturdays.  This would allow it being sent out  from  Kaslo   on    Monday  mornings.    It   would  reach  its  destination   on  Tuesdays.    lie-  turning,  it should leave Sexv Denver on  Fridays, arriving nt Kaslo on Saturdays,  and   be   forwarded  from Nelson on Mondays.    The only advantage the route up  Slocan   river has,  is that it is passable at  all seasons of the year,  wliile the one via  Ivaslo may   be  difficult  of passage   for a  month in  the. spring.    If the mails wore  sent by way of Kaslo, a. large number of  people svorking at Lhe mines would be ac-  An old-timer���your great-grandfather's  clock.

That is what the women of this laud do  annually buy, beg, or borrow. Now, a  hairpin never wears out. It sometimes  becomes pale and bent with age, but its  avoirdupois isall there. What, therefore,  becomes of these .successive millions?  During the last 10 years o,00(),()()t),000 of  hairpins have been made and sold. At  present there are only 100.000,000 in circulation. Now. where���where are the  other-1,1)00,000,000? They have been sown  broadcast I'roin the Atlantic to the Pacilic,  and have left not a trace behind. Of  course some of them are picked up and  restored to their sphere of usefulness,  but most women are as shy of adopting  strange hairpins as they are of accepting  an unidentilicfl toothbrush. And speaking of hairpins becoming pale with age,  why is it tluit when a package of nexv  ones can be bought for a few cents most  women cling' to their old ones until every  vestige of color has gone, and he who runs  may easily count their gleaming heads;?  Anil, again, can anyone explain how it is  that every woman knows her own hairpin  just as she knows her own baby, no matter how numerous and similar its companions? And, furthermore, all women have  at least one pet hairpin. It is guarded  with religious care from year to year. It  i.s the keystone in tho construction of her  coiffure."

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  RATI'! OKINTKItrcST (atpresent) FOUR 1'erOeut.  HERETICS.  Two  Able Presbyterian Scholars Condemned  to Silence.  Tuesday last the Cinoimuiti presbytery  by a vote of .'31 to 27 condemned to silence  one of the brightest scholars in that denomination, the Rev. Professor Henry Preserved  Smith  of   the   Lane Theological  Seminary of Ohio,  until such time as lie  shall recant bis heresy,  which time -will  never come, not even in Galileo fashion.  One does not have to say now under his  breath that the world, moves.    It is con-  ceiled even in  the moral and  theological  sense.    Professor   Smith   was   convicted  upon the second charge in the indictment  ���namely: that the scriptures tire not accurate upon all historical points; likewise  upon'the third charge���namely: tlie denial of the plenary   inspiration   of   the  scriptures.   Iu a word the presbytery decided by a small majority that these doctrines are contrary to the Bible and the  Westminster   Confession.     The   penalty  was pronounced in the following   form:  "Dr. Smith is suspended from the niiuis-  ��� try of the Presbyterian Church until such  time as he shall make manifest to the satisfaction of the presbytery his renunciation of the errors he has been found to  hold and his solemn purpose no longer to  teach or propagate them."  Meamvhile Professor Smith has served  notice of appcal'-to the synod of Ohio and  will not be allowed to perform the functions of a Presbyterian minister. The synod meets in Cincinnati in October, 1893,  and as the General Assembly does not  meet until some time afterward Professor  Smith will remain suspended for about  two years. As revolutions never go backwards this will not be an h*,jury to him,  nor Avill it prejudice the final disposition  of his case. In the meantime he ..will not  be removed from his chair in Lane Seminary, as a majority of the trustees favor  his retention. ������'--..  The other heretic, Professor Briggs, is  still on trial substantially upon the same  charges as those which we're preferred  against Professor Smith, which, sifted  down, are contained in the assertion that  lnptlern scientific criticism has shown that  tjie scriptures contain errors. In his own  cpneise and forcible language contained  in his speech .of defence ���  ���'1 have said, and. I repeat it, that the  Bible tis a book' is'nothing more thap  paper, binding, and printers' ink, but 1  have pointed' out and insisted that it  should be handled with reverent hands  because it contains the divine word and  the inspired, injuctions which lead to  eternal salvation from God, The Bible  was not wi'ii-tpn by infallible pens. Theie  are many errors iii it. But they are not'  errors of deceit; they are human errors,  showing lack of knowledge."  Standing upon this advanced plane of  thought, the eloquent professor charged  his jury iu the following memorable appeal': "Standing in the divine presence  and weighing well every word I say, I  welcome this contest; and, as you stand  in the presence of a higher court than any  organized by man, J challenge .you upon  your faith and trust in God to a righteous  judgment." AVillsueh a verdict be given?  It does not appear likely. It is more  probable that this case, like that of Pro-  . lessor Smith, will not be sustained by the  courts of last resort. To acquit the professors means to abandon the doctrinal  standards and recognize the standards of  human reason, It is questionable whether  the church is yet ready to give its ollieial  sanction to such a stej). In the one case  it must be tantamount to a split, for if  both the professors should be excommunicated' they will be in the goodly company of a large number of their brethren  who have expressed openly similar views,  but in the other ease it means complete  demolition of Presbyterianisni. In either  case these two trials are destined   to  be  "JNTELSOTST   *B*H.^-"ISrC"E3:,  Cor. Haker and Stanley Sts.  /���Nelson, I5.C., Victoria.

The  dismissal of these men will not end their  work or diminish their influence. Tliey  will go on teaching the new doctrines and  thousands will listen. The adverse vote  of the presbyteries will not make them  any less Christ'ans or dampen the ardor  of the people who are struggling forward  in tlie growing illumination. As one of  the presbyters said: "I cannot foretell  the end oi' this matter. The good Lord  did not see fit to endow us with the power  to reach belief without the use of reason,  and 1 cannot see how tlie vote of a presbytery can settle questions for us that we  must decide by reason." The creed is  weakening but the truth is strengthening.  people to quit scoffing and to treat it with  consideration.  The Itev. Dr. Pierson, avIio succeeds  Spurgeon, aviik one of the speakers at a  meeting in connection with the Pastors'  College belonging to the Metropolitan  Tabernacle, and took occasion to repudiate any desire to introduce changes in  the doctrine preached in the Tabernacle  pulpit or taught in the colleger''" lie  heartily believed in the apostolic character of their doctrine and worship.  The views .of Bishop Phillips Brooks ou  immigration are exciting much favorable  comment iu Boston. "If the world," he  says, "in the great march of the centuries  is going to be richer for the development  of a certain national character, built up  by a larger type of manhood here, then  for the world's sake, for the sake of these  very nations that would pour in upon us  that which "would disturb that development, we have a right to stand guard  over it."  A Kentucky Baptist minister says that  some years ago a Baptist chm-ch in that  Sttite tried a man ior kissing his wile.  The formulated charge was entered "Unbecoming levity." The gentleman accused  had been from home several weeks on  business, and ou his return he met his  wife at the meeting-house, and in the presence of the congregation embraced her  with a sounding smack on the lips. Some  of the staid old deacons were so shocked  at such levity in the house of God that  the gentleman -was arraigned on the above  charge, and escaped dismissal from the  church by agreeing to do his kissing at  home in the future.  above described. She wa.s a. woman of  attractive manner and dressed in the  height of fashion. She employed a retinue of servants almost to- tiie last, and  when she failed to procure articles herself she made a messenger of her daughter  according to the daughter's statement,  and secured articles knowing she could  not pay'for them, 'which were pawned in  order /that she might still parade in the  tinsel of the aristocracy of which she had  been a member. The feeling of sympathy  for her unfortunate daughter is said to be  sincere, but the stern old English judge  seemed to think that a sentence to three  months at hard labor was the nearest  approach to "mercy" tlntt he could make.  An Adventure in New "Mexico.  "1 had an adventure with Roman Ortiz,  the notorious Mexican* bandit, down in  .New Mexico in 1878,'' said Dick Little to a  St. Louis Globe-Democrat reporter. "Ortiz and his blood-thirsty lieutenant,  Manuel Grijalva, were the terrors of Arizona at that time, and robbing-stages and  murdering . passengers was their sport.  I left the cam]) of the Argentine mine one  morning by stage, having as fellow-passengers four heavily armed men, who  were escorting $20,000 worth'of bullion to  the railway. Wo had proceeded about  ten miles when Ortiz and his gang  swooped down upon us. It was seldom,  indeed, that they let so rich a. prize slip  through the mountains without making a  try for it. The driver was expecting  trouble, and did not wait for a second  command, but reined up at once, and sat  on his box looking as unconcerned as  though   waiting   for   a   passenger.    The  Society.   He says:   "I was told I could  come  into the  house (and  so  mix   with  some of the greatest of   criminals),   for  which I should have to chop wood, or do  tailoring, etc., but this I objected to do,  so was given a note to take to a tradesman  in a  certain district of London, who offered me a situation as a traveler on commission (only) for the sale of cart grease,  "which   1   politely ��� declined,    it   matters  not what position a man held in life previous to his getting ,iiito trouble, on release this society offers the same means of-  obt.tining an honest livelihood to everyone,  tliat is, clumping and making up bundles  of firewood, working in the tailor's shop,  taking on a milk round with a hand truck,  traveling on commission  for soine articles'  which  the public in 00 cases out of 100 refuse to look at.  much less purchase.    It is  now nearly IS months since I was released,'  during which time I have been living out  a wretched existence, sometimes going for  days without food, anrl walking the streets  at night, and sometimes I am able to earn  a fexv shillings by addressing postal wrappers.    I can assure you. sir.   that* if the  authorities would allow me inside the prison (without comniittiiiganothercriine) 1  would   return  to-day.

Pope Leo has written declining to interfere in the settlement of Archbishop  Purcell's debts.  A woman in the western part of New  irork 'Winits to have her pastor dismissed  on the ground that he rides a bicycle and  studied medicine in his early years.  The late Monsignor Verius, Coadjutor  Bishop of British New Guinea, received  news of his appointment while he Avas in  mud '.up.to his knees, helping to draw logs  from a swamp wherewith to build a mission station.  A Utica, N.Y., preacher has risen up to  criticise the "prodical son" parable. He  holds that it is an injustice to the other  boys who remain at home and keep their  noses to the grindstone Avhile the prodigal,  is "blowing in" his substance down the  line.  Prof. I-L P. Smith of the Lane Theological Seminary has -beeu.-found guilty of  heresy on two of the charges preferred  against him���those relating to his views of  the.inspiration of the Bible. The.sentence  Avas -suspension until he should cease to  hold anrl advocate such opinions.  ���. Dr. Kohn, the new Prince Archbishop  of Olmuetz, Austria���the first Hebrew to  attain so high a rank in the Catholic  Church���is described as a man of medium  height, slender of-iigure, with dark, curly  hair, a line, oval shaped face, a large nose,  dark eyes, anrl heavy red lips.  Bishop Paret of the Protestant Episcopal diocese 'of Maryland and the District  of Columbia will soon have built a steamer  Avhich Avill be fitted as a church. The  boat will carry the Bishop and his assistants to the oyster dredging grounds Sundays, Avhere services will be held.  The Hev. Thonias K. Beecher of Elmira  has headed a.movement among the clergyman of that city to protest against Sunday funerals on the two grounds that the  associations of the day suggest resurrection, not interment, and that undue labor  should also be avoided as far as possible  on the Lord's day.  The late Cardinal Lavigerie. the "Grand  Olrl Missionary of Biskra," used to wear a  Florentine cap such jis Dante wore, half  covering his cars and falling to his neck.  Tlie walls of his simple apartments were  absolutely bare except for a small statue  of the Virgin which laced the crucifix over  the mantel-piece.  Evangelist Moody's opinion that the  prayers' of himself and fellow-passengers  saved the Spree from going to the bottom  of the sea is not very widely confirmed,  even by clergymen, many of whom  shrewdly conclude that the work of the  captain 'anrl crew had something to do  with it. There must be watching as well  as praying.  Those who do not pay close attention to  the development anrl advance of religious  ���methods have probably failed to notice  the decided improvement in the standing  of the Salvation Army in this country.  To many people this organization is more  or less grotesque and fanatical, but the  sober truth i.s that it is getting the respectful attention, and even the cordial  commendation, of some of the ablest  church leaders. For instance, when it is  publicly indorsed by siu-h a man as Bishop  Phillips Brooks and when it is attracting  such workers as the rich daughter of a  New   York   bank president  it is  time for  "HER   MOTHER'S   FAULT."  An English Girl of Good Family Gets a Hard  Labor Sentence.  The story of a beavtiful blue-blood girl,  Gwyneth Maude, who was sentenced .in  Loudon last month to three months imprisonment at hard labor, wasone of the  incidents in the news of the world. She  was arraigned November 10th, charged  with obtaining silver salvers anrl candelabra from Spink cv: Co.. silversmiths, in  Grace street, Loudon. An employe of the  house testified that she had selected the  goods, ordered her family crest engraved  thereon, anrl they xvere sent, as directed,  to her mother's home, a pretentious1 mansion,-in the aristocratic quarters about  Hyde Park Gate. The goods were not  paid for,  and soon thereafter they were  found in a pa.Avn-shop, haA-ing been  put there by the young /woman, avIio is 18  years olrl. It further appeared that she  had also- obtained, Avithout paying for  them, a seal .mantle, jacket, and muff.  The value of the entire lot of merchandise''  was $2500.:  When first the young lady, Gwyneth  Maude,' pleaded guilty, the judge sentenced her as above stated. The punishment, in view of all the circumstances of  the case, is generally considered unduly  severe. When asked what she lmd-to say,  she replied: "It was my mother's fault."  Her youth, beauty, anrl costly attire  caused a suspension of the haste usual in  tlie old court and she. A\*as remanded for  a further hearing.  She again appeared in Marlborough  Street police'court November 10th. The  court learned a few moments before the  case Avas called that the girl's mother had  committed suicide a few hours previous  and the case Avas continued. The younggirl  up to that time was ignorant of the fact  that her mother luirl leaped from a top  story window of the Gretit Western hotel,  Parklington, anrl was killed outright.  When she again-appeared she Avas dressed  in the habiliments of grief. Her heretofore pretty, face betrayed'signs of deep  distress. She received marked consideration on account of her misfortune, anrl  sentence was temporarily suspended.  The case was again calied, however, last  week with the result above stated.  if the story wliich precedes her trouble  be correct there are mitigating circuni*-  stances in the case. Her mother's father,  an English physician, Dr. Campbell, was  an attache of the English residency i'n  Mysore, India. He married a Mysore  [-rincess of great fortune and she dierl  leaving him her possessions. On his death  the estate descended to his daughter. She  married a colonel Maude, who at one time  was equerry to the Queen. They lived a  life of splendid dissipation in London.  She lived recklessly and rushed with  recklessness into the excitement of the  gambling hells, and was conspicuous in  her daring speculations on the English  turf. The fortune dwindled and marital  misery followed. Her husband, broke, retired from the army and went into a  humble trade, that of a ladies' tailor.  It was difficult for Mrs. Maude to become reconciled to poverty. Asa matter  of fact .she never rlid become reconciled.  Her family connections excited sympathy  anil she played that card until it becamo  useless. Then she pawned her valuables,  and that led to the procurement of articles on the credit of her former position  and"eoiincetions, which she did not pay  for aud which were quickly changed into  the money of pawnbrokers. When she  w.*sarrested forty charges were preferred  The break had crime at last. Her friends  deserted  her anrl  she ended  her life as  captain of the guard turned to me and  sairl: 'We're going to make a fight for if.  The odds are against us. If you want to  surrender be d���rl quick about it." Before  I could reply a volley came crashing  through the coach, slightly wounding  two men. We returned thelireaud dreplied three of the robbers. They drexv bade  a little, but kept on shooting, and we continued to make reply. In ten minutes  oneof the guards was dead, another disabled, anrl everyone of us had been  touched. We had five rlearl robbers to  our credit, and felt encouraged to keep up  the fight. Five minutes later the captain  of the guard was killed anrl Ortiz got a  slug of metal in his shoulder that disabled  him. His gang then drew off. The driver  had sat unconcerned through it all. He  now called out to know if he should proceed. "Wait a minute,' replied one of the  guard. He slipped a cartridge into his  smoking revolver, stepped out of the  stage and dropped the driver off the box.  'Oneof the gang.' he said laconically as  he mounted the box, took.up the ribbons,  anrl flecked the learl horses with the long  bull-hide whip."  How Habitual Criminals are Made.  "Number 15,481" tells a pitiable story in  the London Daily News of his difficulties in attempting to obtain a living  honestly after undergoing a term of imprisonment, lie was sentenced three and  a half years ago to two years'imprisonment for forgery. Previously he bad been  possesserl of considerable means; had been  brought up in luxury: but exhausting his  fortune, had committed forgery to obtain  more money. During his imprisonment  he came into contact Avith. many young  fellows avIio had committed similarcrinies".  and Avh'o luirl not the slightest idea as to  how they were to gain a living when they  got out. When he was released he had a  few pounds, anrl when this was gone .he  applied tothe Discharged  Prisoners'Aid  time card, Commencing Dec. 19tli.  COLUMBIA & KOOTENAY S. N. Co. Ltd.

Dave O'Neill, a mining foreman from  the Coo nr d'Alene. has returned to Kaslo  anrl will at once l-il-cc charge of the Blue  Bird mine iu Slocan district. I[o reports  tliat at least one-half of tlie people left in  tlie entire Cu.mii- d'AJene will come to  Kaslo anrl Slocan in the early spring.  Tho rainy weather of the past few days  litis, in a measure, played 'havoc with the  sleigh road out of Ivaslo. Teamsters anrl  others are hoping for a J'reeze and more  snow.  A. nbudryx. .'J. F. Wai-clncr, J. R.  Marled and Ralph L. Clarke, all more or  less\ interested in mining ventures in  West  Kootenay,  passed through Nelson  on T^iesC  their ojx  ay night, bound Cor the scenes of  rations.  ��� Wl F.j Teetx.el left Nelson for a short  eojourn/it Fvaslo. all bectuise he allowed  bis partner's flowers to freeze during the  I'fcte (cold sua]). The woodwork of his  tlx-jjj;! store is being oiled, antl the  evi'Alit -who i.s rloing the work says that  rirL.en completed TeeL/.el Ac Co. will have  the Jlnest-a.ppoinfced drug store in British  Oohimbia.  A movement is on foot among the property qAvncrs on each sirle of '"A" avenue,  Ka?:lq', to-wirlen tha,t thoroughfare to SO  fea-Sv'/ef'.c'li lot OAvner is to give ten feet  froinlfcho front of his property.  arley Kent litis taken tlie contract to  run tho 800-foot crosscut tunnel on the  '.     Chambers group for .John M. Burke Ac Co.  JIc left Ktislo the first of the Aveek for the  '. - scene of his labor Avith' a full complement  of supplies.    Four men will be employed  until the work is completed.,  ��� A brand new "papa"rushed into a drug  store at Ivaslo recently and inquired of  the proprietor if ho had any false teeth  saying, "our baby is born  without tiny."  The handsome frame building for general purposes at the Kemp mineral springs  on fvaslo river is completed and furnished.  Jt is proposed by a number of Iv-tslo's  young people to get up a sleighing party  the coming week tind dedicate the building with a ball.  At Donald on December 21sfc last the  thermometer registered 'iS degrees below  /.err>. just .S3 degrees lower than was registered at Nelson on the same rlate.  The only apparent result of the recent  fire warden roundup at Nelson is a new  brick chimney on the log building in  Avhich the government officials transact  business���the   safest   building   in   town.  When a full-groAvn  man discusses the  individual merits of Democratic politicians of the State of Washington anrl  raves about the eyes and the back of the  neck of a young girl tit die same time he  is a fit candidate i'or a lunaticasylum; anrl  ivaslo had just such a man within her  limits last Saturday night.  A joint meeting of the committees from  the Nelson and Kaslo boards of trade will  be lielrl at Ii. II. Kemp's oflicc, Ktislo, on  Monday next, at S o'clock p.m., for the  purpose of taking action regarding the  '-completion of the organizations.  The Keel ey Gold Cure Company (Foreign)  has been incorporated in this province.  The capital is $2">,()00, anrl 'Victoria- is he  principal place of business. A branch institute -should be established at Kaslo at  once.  Bonner's Ferry Herald, December.3.1st:  "The news this Aveek in regard-to the  sleigh road is rather indefinite. We  understand that the road i.s opened out.  but that there is a short delay, ca-used by  the ice being too thin to bear up. teams  and necessitating the building a ferryboat. It is expected to be ready daily.  There are a large number of passengers  anrl much freight and express waiting  transportation."  W. J. Cleary of the Ktislo Transportation Company goes on the outside the  first of the week to purchase additional  stockand two new Concord coaches. They  are determined to have this line second  to none in British Columbia-.  Two residents of Kootenay hike, one  hailing from Ainsworth and the other  from Ktislo, had an experience in Spokane  recently, the facts of wliich have leaked  out. Tliey were both on their way to  spend the win er in eastern Canada and  happened to meet in the falls city. Deciding to have a splendid time they visited  several resorts. While leaving one of  these places in tlie wee sum hours, they  Avere nabbed by a party who claimed to  be a policeman. 'Negotiations were opened  to "square" themselves so they would not  have to appear in court that morning.  The pretending "cop" intimated tluit $50  each would boaboiit ri#ht. Ktislo "Jack"  potlachod, but Ainsworth ".Jack" did not  have tlie funds with him. The officer  finally concluded to allow them to go.  During the day it Avas ascertained tlie  policeman  was bogus.   The Kaslo man is I  out ti 50for his experience while the Ainsworth man thinks he wtis in big luck to  have been short at the time.  The Nelson Board of Trade committee  -Avhich will visit Kaslo on ,3Ionday have  been tendered a free excursion, with the  Kaslo committee, to visit the bottling  works tind hotel of the Kemp Mineral  AVater Company, provided they can stay  over Tuesday.  "Blake" Wilson and Billy Purdue are  having a picnic this Avinter in getting in  beef cattle. It took the former ViK hours  to make the distance from Kobson to  Trail Creek over the trail, the snow being  i'rom three to three anrl a half feet deep.  In swimming cattle across the Columbia  river Billy Perdue was in Avater up to his  neck for an hour or more, anrl Avhcn he  got through wished tho Dominion government in a hotter place than hades.        ,.  It may be dull at Nelson, in a real estate  way. but one of the best known operators  in Victoria writes, "It is impossible to sell  real estate in this city at present."  The court that sat at Nelson on Saturday to hear appeals against the assessment made by the tax assessor hadn't a  chance to hear a single complaint, tis no  one appeared. Letters xvere received  from several people, avIio claimed-that  they were assessed for property that they  rlid not own.  "Si" Johns sprained his right tinkle  badly about I o'clock Monday night on  Vernon street, near the International  hotel. Dr. Arthur was called, and Mr.  Johns wtis carried to the LoavLs cabin,  where he is now getting along comfortably.  There was a dance tit Archie Fletcher's  Grand Central hotel, Kaslo, on Saturday  night; one tit Clark's hotel, Pilot Bay. on  Monday night: and one at Gallups's hotel.  Balfour, on Tuesday night. All three  social OA'cnts were attended by Mr. tind  Mrs. James AlcDonald anrl Mr. G. A. Bigelow and Aliss Katie Kelly of Nelson.  Died, at San Francisco, on NoA'ombcr  23rd, IT. M. Kirkwood; agerl 2S years.  The deceased wtis born in Gren ville county.  Ontario, and wtis a. brother of It. J. Kirkwood, the well-known prospector and  miner of West Kootenay.  ~XV.   C.

There is one team ou the Nakusp road  hauling merchandise for Bourne Bros.  The sleigh road is completed from the  hike up to the mines on Four Al Mo creek,  and both the Alahan tind Grady claims  have ore ready for shipment.  For the information of the-people who  have made complaint.*- against the Nelson  postmaster, Till-* Thiiiuxh is aubhorizod-  to state that the postmaster at Nelson litis  not the contract for carrying the mails  between the Nelson ollice and the steamboat landing. If mails sometimes miss  connections, it ic not the fault of the postmaster, but the fault of the man that litis  the contract for carrying the mails..
