Today. the 21th of .May. is the birthday  of her most gracious majesty Queen Victoria, a sovereign who for nearly ;")() yours  has wielded ( he sceptre of authority over  the mighty British empire. I do not know  Llia'/ I shall exaggerate if 1 speak of the  reign of Victoria as the most brilliantaiul  the most beneficent that is on record in  the annals of history, fu lhe catalogue  of Fnglish kings and queen*; there is but  one name, that of Henry VI.. whose reign  exceeded in length that to which Victoria  lias .already attained. and within !)() days  from today even that exceptional instance  will havi! been surpassed.  Victoria was a girl of IS when she was .  awakened out of sleep ar the request of  the privy councillors of (ireat Britain lo  be told that her uncle. William IV.. had  breathed his last, aud she was heir to the  crown that been worn by the great Alfred  and the great Fli/.uboth : by the Black  Prince and by William of Orange: by  Riehurd deiir de Leon and by the Norma n  conqueror. Since that time, the 20th day  of .June, 1W7, the thronesof all other civilized nations have been Viicuiit-tnost of  them more than once.  Not only have individual monarchs  passed away, but dynasties base perished  aud forms of government have changed.  If we glance aL the history of our sister  nation, the countrv whose citizens are today in such numbers our'guests,''what  vicissitudes'.':ot' experience has she not  passed through'since in 1837, when Martin  Van Buren filled the presidential chair.

And in gratitude for the vast prosperity, for the peace  and the wealth which have come to the  empire during her reign, and with the  hosts of her subjects who are to be found  on every continent, and on the islands of  every sea, we join in the sentiment of the  national anthem :  (!oil save our Kriu-iiiiisi|iii'cn ;  l.ontf may Vietoria rei^n :  (lod save the i|iieeu.

Ill all. of her majesty's vast dominions  there is no place that has greater cause  for gratitude for past achievements, or  better ground for brig-lit anticipations,  than has the 'town in which we have invited you to join our festivities today.  Twenty years ago no spot in N'orth  America could have been pointed out as  more inaccessible than the delta of  this little river.  Two years ago the prospect of bringing  together here a permanent population of  civilized, men and women existed only as a  vision il&, the fertile imagination of the  owner a'i'id the then sole occupant of this  ground. .But Anglo-Saxon enterprise and  endurance, which is ever the same,  whether British or American, lias seized  upon and followed up the traces which  nature has here left exposed of her hidden  treasures, until in these hills which rise  around us, and on the banks of the  streams which are tributary to our valley,  silver and gold have been brought to  light in quantities never dreamed of by  Ferdinand and Isabella, when -1(H) years  ago they fitted out the Genoese adventurer  to go in quest of a new world,  We show you here today in this prosperous and rapidly growing young city  the best possible evidence of" the faith  that has been inspired in the hearts of a  multitude of people as regards the richness awl the permanency of the mineral  deposits - that have   been so   plentifully  found in the adjacent mountains.  We have had here a multitude of men  from all countries, men of scientific attainments and men of practical knowledge, aud from all sources we have a concensus of opinion to the effect that there is  here in sight wealth enough to build up  a city equal (o any mining city in the  world.  The Rocky Mountain range throughout  .Mexico and the United Stales is already  proved to be prolific of mineral wealth.  The portion of the range that is within  the Dominion of CJ.i lad i isoqii'.il in extent,  to all that there is within (lie United  States, and there is reason to believe has  equal wealth. All that has been done in  Nevada. Colorado, Utah and .Montana  during the last -10 years can be duplici'.Led  in Kootonay, in Jjillooot. in Cariuoo and  in Cassiar, for districts of British Columbia are as large as states of Lhe Union.  The mining men of Lhe south mmd not  weep for lack of worlds to conquer.     The  Pacific, has set bounds  to the advance of  Anglo-Saxon industry westward, but vegetable   and   animal   products   reach   the  maximum of perfection uear the northern  limit of their growth, and what is the law  of these kingdoms will prove to be the law  of Lhe mineral kingdom as well.   The current of emigration  must now flow northward through the vulloysof tho Kootenay  and Columbia, tho Frnzerand the AleKen-  i zie. the Skenna and   the Yukon, until the  j straits of Behriug have been reached and  | the czar of liussiu has found   his political  j exiles  liberated out of  Siberia by a baok-  1 door route.  i We have invited our neighbors who live  i south of the line to visit us today: we  welcome them to our gathering : we wish  those who must needs return a pleasant  journey, but we have in our minds the ulterior purpose of inducing many of you to  come and live among us, as so many of  your countrymen have-done, and share  with us the good times coining to Kaslo.  We do not ask you to change your political allegieuce: we who are British do not  hold out any promise that we will-change  ours. One hundred and twenty years ago  your forefathers by somewhat summary  measures I'vced themselves from the restraints of arbitrary power. We since,  by milder methods, have accomplished the  same object. Our institutions tire as free  as yours -our government as responsive  to' the will of the people.

And suppose they had   worked thatway  for   thirty   years:   had   been   showering  kind deeds along their pa.th  all the time,  and then a society of women  would not  permit  them a  place  in their  ranks because, perhaps, they did not belong to an  old family: perhaps they wore not authority on   fashions;  perhaps  they had  not  confined     their     reading   to    skimming  the    daily    papers   and    the    monthly  magazines;    perhaps.     because   of     the  wealth made, possibly dishonestly, by the  husbands, they did not wish to associate  with   a  woman   who had   nothing in the  world   but a,  healthy and graceful body,  a graceful and aggressive mind, and hail  made   for   herself   a,   distinguished    and  honorable  fame.

San Francisco Argonaut: Jt becomes  interesting to impure how many American tourists usually go to Europe every  summer and return in the fall, and how  much money they spend on their travels.  Just a year ago, the Argonaut" collected  statistics on the subject, which we published at the time of the spring hegira, to  Furope, in order to give point to an argument in favor of domestic travel, it appeared that about eighty per cent of the  cabin  passengers arriving at New York  of them have thoughti'of a class7)Tiadios 4 '"'"oni   Fin-ope  wove Americans  returning  making up that thing called the Sorosis'i \ from a  foreign tour:  in  other words, the  There is oiie"fcuLure about a, certain class  of American ladies which is a strong argument in   favor of the belief that the race  is degenerating. Tbeaverage woman does  not like any other woman who works, and  some who call themselves ladies prefer to  associate  with women who are rich, but  whose   wealth   was acquired   in  a  most  questionable way. to noticing a pijxir girl  who  is struggling to  make for herself a  competency and who in her heart holds  all who are poor and in   trouble in sym-.j  pa thy.    All that is a. bad sign.   That.sort i  of women never become mothers of great  men or great women.    A race made up of  such women is �� tainted race.    Of course I  it  has  come, through   the acquisition  of !  sudden fortunes, and we have faith that a |  better judgment will assert itself.

The 2Sth of May was set apart by the  .Methodist church of tho  United States as  a day on which to render special prayers  that the Creator may so order the minds  of men as to secure just treatment for the  Chinese    in     America.    The   'Methodist  church has the largest number of 'members  in  the Celestial  empire,  and great  fears are entertained that it may be compelled to entirely suspend its work.in this  direction us a result of the action of the  supreme court in deciding the Ceary Act-  constitutional.   The leaders of thedenom-  ination believe that the fervent prayers  of righteous men and women avail much,  and  hence n day   is set apart for solemn  supplication in every iMetbodistchurch of  the land..   Did this church ever set inlay  for   special    prayer    in    the   hope   that  it  would be of benefit to  the  people of  America  who are  recognized   as. of   the  christian   faith ?\   Does this church   make  any great effort  to  improve  the  moral  condition of the peopleof the shuns of the  large cities of America ?    Does  not this  church,  like all  other   church  organizations, devote more attention to attempts  to "christianize" people who have a religion of their own than to people who have  no religiousconvictions whatever; or, are  they not more willing to work cultivated  ground than   work in barren fields?   The  Chinese in America have not been "christianized" to any appreciable extent, even  though   they have been taken   under the  wing.of  t lie churches : and they will   not  be, even if they are permitted to live here  for centuries.   Their  religious doctrines  are   older   than   those of  the  Methodist  church,   and if lived up to   will probably  land  their believers near enough  heaven  for praet ieal purposes.  A Gospel  Truth.  The following from the Salt Lake Tribune is a-gospel truth, and should be read  and considered by ladies residing in  smaller places than Saw York:  "And so the New York Sorosis has  blackballed little Lottie Crabtree. The  chaiicesarethatLottio will be remembered  for her good-deeds after every member of  the Sorosis has been forgotten. Fach one  of those ladies ought to stop a moment  and suppose a case. Fach one should suppose that she had been born in a- little  mountain town in California.; that her  parents had been poor; that she had been  born at the time Uhen pretty children  were badly spoiled in California, because  the great bears called men in those days  were extravagantly fond of pretty children and were extravagant in their presents to I hem. Would they have had the  strength to have taken such gifts as the  good Cod bestowed upon them; to have  gone on the stage: to have sung and  danced and kicked until they acquired a  fortune, and have so lived nil the time notwithstanding the flattery bestowed upon  them and the temptations which surrounded tJiein, that there would not have  Why Are Not Tenders  Called For.  Hardly an issue of a government organ  appears in which there is notan advertisement asking for  lenders for carrying her  majesty's mails over established routes in  British Columbia.    Bui. for some reason,  no tenders are ever asked for routes in  Southern Kootenay.  Is this because there  are  no routes in this section of the province?   Or is it because our towns and  mining campsareephemeral ?   Nelson has  government  offices,   banks, newspapers,  wholesale houses, and several large retail  establishments;    Kaslo claims a population of over 2000, and has certainly halt a:  hundred   business houses ;    Ainsworth is  a town oi' considerable importance ; New  Den vor is on the map;    Watson has a post"  office.' Yet there is no regular mail route  established between these town's,and .they  Jill   do more or less business with  each  other.   When asked by the South Kootenay Board of Trade to establish a  route  between these places, the postof'fice inspector answers that New Denver has already  a weekly service by way of Nakusp.   Tf  that postofiice  inspector had an ounce of  sense  he would   know  that the business  interests of the Kootenay Lake country,  require prompt and adequate mail facilities, and such service cannot be given by  way of Nakusp.   The distance from Watson to New Denver by   way of Nakusp. is  201  miles; by way of Three   Forks,  ten  miles.   The distance from  Kaslo to Now  Denver by. way of Nakusp is  IS1   miles:  by   way   of..Watson   and  Three' Forks,  thirty   miles.   The distance   from  Ainsworth to New Denver by way of Nakusp  is   109  miles; by way of Kaslo,   Watson,  and  Three "Forks,   forty-two  miles.   The  distance from  Nelson to New   Denver by  way of Nakusp is .18(5  miles ; by  way of  Ainsworth.-   Kaslo,   Watson    and   Three  Forks,  seventy-five miles.   There are no  places of importance between Nelson and  New Denver by way of Nakusp. not even  a wayside  letter-box in which   to deposit  mail  for isolated claim   owners.   By the  Kaslo  route there are the  postof'lieos of  Buifour, Pilot Bay. Ainsworth, 'Kaslo and  Watson, and   numerous wayside  letterboxes.   The  bulk of the business of Now  Denver is with   tho  towns on   Kootenay  Lake, and not with Nakusp.    Fven if the  Nakusp route was the better one, a weekly  service js wholly inadequate.    The people  'of the Kootenay Lake country know what  they want and what they are justly entitled to. and theirrequests iiiiisLrooeiveeon-  sideration. even if incompetent civil service servants and self-seeking members of  parliament are  made to walk  the gangplank.

Hughes for an .undivided one-  fourth interest in the Best group of mines  in Slocan district. The Byrne interest  was a "grid) stake;" one and the Hughes  party contended that Byrne was not entitled to an interest until he paid his share  of all the expenses incurred in developing  the property. The Hughes wens ordered  to makcan accounting of their expenditures and Byrne given ten days in which  to pay over his proportion of the money  expended.  Will Turn the Money Over to the Hospital.

B.  Douu-:.  total arrival of cabin  passengers at New  York being 100.000, that SO,000  Americans  visited   Furope  in the course of a year,  mainly on   pleasure bent.    It  further appeared  that  those   traveling   Americans  spent for their voyage across the ocean an  average of $100 each, or$200for the round  trip,   which   would   give   $1(5.000,000   for  ocean  transportation for the whole.-   As  all the passenger steamships were sailing  under foreign  flags, this sixteen millions  went  into foreign   pockets.    How   much  American travelers   spend   in   traveling  through Furope varies so much that it is  difficult-to strike   an   average.   .College  professors, young ladies traveling alone,  young men of limited means, but bent on  seeing the world, often make a hasty tour  of Furope covering fifty or sixty days for  SHOO a  head.    .Men  who have  means, and  want to enjoy themselves, rarely find that  they can cut down their expenses  below  $20 a day.   And rich men, of whom there  is a  prodigious  number in   Furope every  season,   put   their  minimum  expense at  $10,000 for a four month's trip for a party  of throe.    If we say that  the average ex-  penditureof American travelers in Furope  is $l:"3 a day  por head,  and  the  average  leiigi.li  of the trip  four months,  or one  hundred  and   twenty days, we arrive at  the result that the aggregate expenditure  of the tourists amounts to the enormous  sum of .$1-1-1,000,000.  Add to this $1(5,000,000  for ocean   transportation,  and the  total  outlay of money by Americans in Furope  each season is $'l(j()'000.0()0.  Whore a nation sends its coin abroad  for the purchase of merchandise, the  operation involves no danger. The shipper of coin gets a quid pro quo for his  money. He merely exchanges one form  of.-property foranother. .But where a nation sends its coin abroad to pay for pleas-,  ures and luxuries, it gets nothing in exchange biit a transitory on joyinent. which  has no commercial value. The United  States have been in the habit of presenting Furope each year with coin exceeding  in amount the total.exports of the United  States in . LSoO: and we have nothing in  exchange but a delight which was as  evanescent as the flavor of a glass of  champagne after it is drunk. Now there  seems to be a prospect that the drain will  be checked, for this .year at all events"  What will be the effect on the money  markets at the Furopean centers ?  The fair will not only tend to keep at  home an enormous sum of 'money which  but for its occurrence, would have 'gone  abroad, but it will probably stimulate a  tendency on the part of Americans to do  a larger proportion for their traveling at  home. Americans, when they got money,  make a bee-line for Fan's, and of those  who are met at the Grand Hotelf>r on the  boulevards, only a i'c.w have seen Niagara,  still fewer have crossed the Rocky mountains, hardly any have visited the 'Yellowstone or tho Yosemite. Yet those natural  beauties are as well worth seeing as the  ruins of antiquity or the splendors of  modern art. Tho American who visits  Italy with no knowledge of the language  and a limited acquaintance with the history of the spots to which his guiele takes  him. conies back very little wiser than he  was when he left. But no human being  can contemplate the wonderful work of  nature'On this continent without feeling  his mind enlarged, nor can he analyze the  work of man without requiring a- newand  just appreciation of the normal working  of free institutions. The World's Fair will  teach thobostclass of America nsthat their  country is worth seeing that American  travel may not be as fashionable to Furo-  pean travel, but is quite as interesting  and possibly more instructive.  Van Home's Visit.  It is claimed the object of W. C. Van  j Home's visit to the Pacific coast means  ' the inauguration of another independent  j transcontinental line of communication,  I with Seattle as the western terminus.    In  ! a I'cw days the new service is to be iiiau-  j gi i ra ted. and for tho present two steamers  ! have been contracted with to handle the  | railroad's iniptirtaiit business from Seat-  j tie.

The impression that strikes almost any  one in  A Practical  Man Snubbed.  Michael iMcAndrews  of  Kaslo   was  in  Nelson on Tuesday, and like every other  man with a grievance called at Twz Triii-  unk office.   Mr. Al (-Andrews' grievance is  against the Kaslo members of the South  Kootenay   Board    of   Trade.    Believing  that they  were  imbued   with a desire to  aid  any enterprise  that would be of benefit to Kaslo. Air. AIcAndrews laid a, proposition before them for the establishment  of a. brick yard at or noarthattown.    Tho  proposition.was recoived and read, but no  other   action    taken.     Air.    AIcAndrews  claims to be a practical man. and is of the  opinion that a brick yard, and like industrial enterprises, would be of great benefit  to Kaslo,  and  was willing  to go before  the members and explain what hein tended  doing.    lie claims  that there is a  bod of  clay close to Kaslo from which a fair brick  could   be made, and  that   there   is clay  about eight   miles  up   the   wagon   road  which would make a first-class brick. The  town has arrived at that stage when brick  buildings would bo erected if brick could  be  procured  at a reasonable price : and  what is true of Kaslo  is true of Nelson.  Air. AIcAndrews is of opinion,   from their  actions, that the Kaslo members of  the  board of trade are more disposed to waste  their energies in   wrangling with Nelson  and plotting for political advantages than  taking up and furthering enterprises that  would give steady employment- to a. number of men.   He believes he was snubbed ;  and he is not far astray.  Two Inefficient Public Servants.  At no time since a 'postofiice'was established in the Kootenay Lake country has  the mail service been worse than at present. Complaints of inefficient service are  made by-people in every section of the  country, and no attempt, apparently,  is  made, to bettor the service. As an instance:  The News-Advertiser of Vancouver is  mailed to Tin-; Tkihunk six days in the  week, but not more than three copies a  week ever reaches this office, and often  not more than one. What is true of the  News-Advertiser is true of the-Victoria  Times. -TiibTiiihu.vk is mailed regularly  to New Denver, less than seventy miles  distant from Nelson; yet it seldom gets  there, and when it does is always a week  or two old. This is mainly because of the  .inefficiency of postofiice inspector Fletcher,  who is well aware that no has the backing  of Air. Mara, the district's representative  in the Dominion house. Air. Alara is notoriously averse to giving the people adequate mail facilities, and no one knows it  better than postofiice; inspector Fletcher.  The Nakusp & Slocan Railroad.  Three years ago. when building the  Columbia 6c Kootenay railway, "Dan"  Aled'illivray was considered one; of the  youngest men in the work. Today, when  in Nelson on the way back from taking a  look over the route; of the projected Nakusp 6c Slocan railway, "Dan" looks as if  he was growing aged. While not knowing anything definitely. Air. AlcCillivray  is of opinion that the Nakusp tv: Slocan  road will be built, from Nakusp to the  head of Slocan lake this year, and to the;  forks of Carpenter creek by.Inly. ISO I.  The road from Itewelstoke to the Upper  Arrow lake will, he thinks also be built.  At any rate, he looked tin; former route  over with a view of putting in a tender  for the work. The road is not beting built  by (hi,' Canadian Pacific, but- when completed it will lie leased to that company  on a rental basisof Id per cent of the gross  earnings. The tenders are to be opened  on t he 7th instant.  1 A Prosperous Bank.  .1. Afv (I'reata, assistant inspector of tin;  Bank of Montreal, was in Nelson this  week to see; if the boys in charge of the  Nelson branch had bee;n running things  according to Boyle. He. no doubt, found  everything as straight as a siring, and if  reports are correct, the; stockholders of  the bank will at the end of the next six  months draw an extra-large dividend, the  money therefore coining from the earnings of the Nelson branch.

B. J<J, (JlU)VK.  Ainsworth keeps forging ahead, and to-,  day it is one of the  most active'camps in  the district in development work. A very  significant fact about the camp is that  railway men are becoming active in pushing its claims to the front and making investments in it.    Railway men,  above all  others,  know a good thing when they see  it.   .J. V. Carroll, of the Baltimore 6c Ohio  railway,  was here about ten days ago,  and went over it very carefully,  examining many prospects, and as a result he lias  bonded two claims for a mining company'"'  of which he is the president, and made arrangements    with   Alessrs.    Strobeck    6c  I Tardy  to  build  a wagon   road  from the  and of tho present Cedar Creek road 'to his  ' claims (about 8000 feet) for tflOOO.    W.   R.  Busenback, general traffic manager of the  Chicago <fc  Great  Western  railway has  purchased an interest in the Spokane and  Trinket, and is expected daily in the camp  to   meet  John  A.   Wolgamo.   the   chief  owner of these two claims.    They will proceed at once   to sink the  present shait in  the Spokane fifty feet, and  when  that is  completed they will put in a boiler and  engine and   the necessary machinery for  further sinking.   Tlmy will also do some  tunnelling.  Alaiiager Johnson of the Schaffer company is knocking out six feet a day in the  big tunnel, and is running night and day.  50 strong has his faith become in the value  of Lhe camp that he  has  bonded  several '  claims and has gone Lo Seattle  to induce  his friends to buy and develop them.  Alessrs. Stevenson A: Alikel have for the  past ten days been engaged in repairing  the wagon road to the No. 1, and getting  that mine in condition for active work.  Vesterday they had this completed, and  with fourteen men have begun to takeout  ore for shipment.  The Highland has the call at present-'on  everything in the camp, and to the average denizen of Aiiisworth it is.his pride to  speak of it.    Less than a "month ago it was  51 io ken of as a fair average prospect, but  Alessrs. Stevenson 6c Alikel have in that  time worked a complete transformation.  They have run two tunnels: one, on the  lower and larger ledge, the other on the  upper and slightly smaller ledge. Besides  this tunnel work they have sunk three  shafts on three different veins running"  from these ledges,and cutting the formation. They have 1;")0 tons of ore on lhe  dump ready for shipment as soon as the  wagon road to the Cedar creek bridge is  completed. In the lower tunnel, on Saturday last, they struck a large body of  high-grade ore at thirty feet from' the  mouth. The ledge in the tunnel is eight  feet wide : the vein is about five feet with  a solid ore body of nearly three feet in  width, and will assay 150 ounces silver to  the ton. This has been done with an expenditure of less than $15(K). and a prospect has been thus raised to the dignity of  a mine. This experiment has shown wliat  can easily be done with many oilier prospects in the cainj) when gumption and  grit characterise the men in the enterprise.  A Meteor Falls on Sheep Creek.  There is always something out of the  usual run happening at Trail Creek.  When it is notan unexpected mineral discovery it is tin unlooked for convulsion of  Nature. On Friday last what sounded  like a- heavy clap of thunder, which lusted  for three minutes, was heard at Trail  (.'reek, and   the residents of that   village  fully expected to sec rain fall in torrents.  But they didn't. Instead, in a i'rw hours  afterwards, they sawa man rtishingaloug  the trail from Ihe mines, as if in a hurry  to record a mineral discovery of value,  lie explained, however, that he had not  made a discovery of mineral, but that he  had witnessed the fall of a wonderful  meteor over "on Sheep creek, and had  brought pieces of it along to prove that  he was telling lhe truth, lie-exhibited  several pieces of meteoric iron, but as  they .contained no traces of gold, they  were given back with the contemptuous  remark: "That piece of rock contains no  gold and was not intended to be; dropped  in this disi rict. Take if down to North-  port, where the people do not know one  Kind of rock from another, and they will  only be too glad to exhibit- it as a specimen froiira ininetribiitarv to their town."  Are Sized Up According- to Their "Worth.  In this country men arcsi/.cd up according to their worth: no man being considered worthier than another because of accident of birth, or because of ofiicial position, or because; of membership in any  particular close-corporation profession.  If members of the latter are held in contempt by our people, it is bocau��e of t heir  practices. If judges are not respected, it  is because of their allowing their weaknesses to get- the better of them at times.  If premiers are snubbed, it is because of  their not understanding their true position to the people. In this country one-  man is as good as another, and the man  who works for a living is not necessarily a-  "hobo" simply because pronounced so by  eiin; of the official class.  U   .'

The press of Canada, like the press of  the Eastern States, believe the Chinese  are cruelly treated by the people oL' the  Pacific Coast, and that the supreme court  ol' the United States made a wrong decision in declaring the Geary Act good  law. The press ol' Canada, aside from  one or two high-class papers like the  Toronto Week, is either controlled by  politicians so intensely partisan or by  corporation." so entirely self-seeking that  its opinion on any question carries but  little weight. Of the Chinese question it  knows nothing, and very naturally takes  its cue from the expressions of British  Columbia politicians like our own saintly  .John Andrew Mara and from Canadian  Pacific organs like the 'Winnipeg Fiec.  Press. The following from the San Francisco Argonaut voices the sen timents of IM)  out every 100 sensible men on the Pacific  Coast, whether they live to the south elite) the north of the boundary line:  "The decision of the United States su-  '��� preme court affirming the constitution-  " ality of  the.   Geary  Act  must  gratify  ������ i>very  man   who  thinks With   his own  '��� head, and who founds his .judgment on  '��� knowledge  instead   of  consulting   edi-  '��� torial or ecclesiastic ignorance when in  '��� want of opinions.   The decision is good  "law and  good sense.   Whether it shall  '���result in any extensive-deportation of  '��� Chinese or not. it will stand as a prece-  '��� dent of immense value, and that it on-  '��� force's anew the  fact that the govern-  |; inent of the United States has an nidis-  ������ putable right to dictate the terms upon  '��� which aliens may come to or remain in  '��� the   country.     The   arguments  -made  " against the Geary Act have been absurd.  -.'��� This applies as well to the pleas of the  '��� attorneys hired by the Chinese torepre-  '��� sent them as to the intolerable flood of  '���twaddle  that has been   poured out by  '��� the press and clergy of the east.    Our  '��� friends of the Atlantic pulpit and edi-  '��� torial  room  seem   to   be  incapable   of  " reasoning   when   the   Chinaman   is   in  '��� question.   They proceed on the assuinp-  '��� tiou.   which   they regard  as an axiom.  '��� that a Chinaman is a mild, unoffending.  ������ innocent creature, eminently desirable  '���as an immigrant, and disliked only by  f ignorant and  brutish  persons who, 1111-  '��� dor  the  impulsion  of a revolting  race ,  '��� hatred, persecute him cruelly.    In  this j  " view it has appeared a shameful humil-  '��� iation. a, wanton outrage, to require the  " Chinaman   to   provide   himself with   a  '��� paper that will establish his legal right  '��� to  be in   the  United   States.    It is  not  "needed to inform anyone  who has en-  '��� 'countered the Chinaman of reality how  '��� grotesquely unlike him is the Chinaman  '��� of the pious eastern imagination.    Nor  '��� is it necessary to say to those who are  '��� familiar with  the laws and  practice of  '���civilized  nations that there is nothing  '��� novel  in  requiring foreigners  to carry  '���about   them    certificates   of    identity.  '��� Kvon the natives of many countries are  '��� registered from the cradle to the grave?.  '��� Kvcry child born in hYauce, Germany, or  '���any other country where the conscrip-  " tiou system exists, is registered, and the  '���authorities can   put  their  hands upon  '��� him wilh inexorable certainly whim he  " arrives at the military age. Is registra-  '" tiou more humiliating to the Chinese  " than to those; of our own race? Why  ,; should the United States deny itself any  " of the powers of sovereignty, all of  "which are necessary to its own well-  ;' being?  "The hubbub that has been raised in  "' the east over the Geary Act has come  " from a body of men and women whose  '��� ability to make themselves heard is out  " of all proportion to their importance,  ���'either numerically or intellectually.  '���'They have the pulpit and enjoy access  " to the press, but their zeal in behalf of  '��� the Chinese is not tempered with  " knowledge of either their proteges or  " the laws of the land. Inclusion of the  ���' Chinese is the settled policy of this  "country. The great mass of tho people  " north, south, east, and west approve  " that policy, else congress would not  " have legislated as it has done. The  " system of registration is merely a plan  " to secure exclusion. Without such a  " plan, exclusion is impossible. The coun-  " try can not guard her thousands of  " miles of frontier by laud and sea.  "The Chinese opposition to registration.  :i has arisen froni no feeling that to take  ������ out a certificate would be degrading.  '��� but from a. lively perception on the part  '��� of the heads of ot the Six Companies  '��� that the device would put an end to the  " large and highly profitable business of  ".smuggling in Chinamen in defiance of  " law. No Chinaman -who has complied  " with the laws of the United States is in -  " the slightest peril of molestation; any  " Chinaman who has not so complied  I; should be treated like any other law-  " breaker, and made to suffer the penalty  " provided by the law he has broken. l<Jx-  ������ elusion carries with it deportation as a  ���' logical .consequence.    If -a   country   is  ��� privileged- to .pass, laws to exclude a  'given race or class, and then should be  'debarred from'"carrying out the laws  ' against intruders, would it not be folly  ��� to enact the original excluding laws?  "The emotional and ignorant preachers  ' and penmen of the east will .'be educated  ��� painfully but well,'' by the supreme  ' court's decision. They will learn from  ' it that not gush but good sense controls  'this republic. It will make clear to  ��� them, for the lirst time, apparently, the  ��� fact that this "government, if it so  ' chooses, can exclude or deport not Chi-  ' iiimie'i only, but other foreigners. The  'venerable alien laws "of-1798 perinit.no  ������doubt on that head. Probably congress  ' will give the Chinese further time in  : which to register,  in  which  case-the.se  ��� sensitive Asiatics will have to descend  ; to the level of American citizens, who  are compelled to undergo the same humiliation before they can vote, and who  every ten years are forced by brutal  census agents to elislose not alone their  names, ages,-places of birth, the number  1 and sexes of their children, their occupations, but even their diseases. Night-  schools might with advantage be opened  in the principal cities of the Atlantic  ; seaboard for the instruction of clergymen and journalists in the rudiments of  American law and the inherent powers  of government.  "There is babble about retaliation by  China. Mow can she retaliate? Our exclusion laws, to which the Geary Act is  but an amendment, apply solely tola-  borers. There are no American laborers  in China. Moreover, none of our countrymen in that empire, whatever their  station in life, enjoy the privileges accorded the huniblcstcoolie in the United  States. Americans, like other foreigners, are denied freedom of movement in China, and are allowed to reside  only in specified localities. The niission-  jiiries are especially fearful that they  maybe sent home. Both America and  China could manage to bear up under  (.his calamity. Missionary labor has  been an immense and costly failure in  China, every convert representing an  outlay of thousands of dollars. The  Chinese are too well satisfied with a religion to which theirforefiithers adhered  contentedly for more than four thousand years, to change! it for ours, which  to them is ('omparativelya thing of yesterday. There is ample work among  the heathen of our own cities for nil the  missionary talent that is wasting itself  in China and drawing salaries from  Amerien.  "The Geary Act has been upheld by the  ' supreme court, bul it remains to lie seem  ' whether theadininistral ion will cnlorci  ' it in good   faith.    President  Olevelaiu  ' impervious lo argument and persuasion  'on many sides, is extremely open to the  ' influence of the Mugwump press of New  ' York   city,   .which   is   horrified at the  ' thought of packing outof the country a  ' coolie who has had the insolence to hoh  ' its laws in  contempt.    lie is also prone  1 to   think   himself  wiser  than   congress  and chartered  by his own greatness to  ' execute  or suspend   the   laws  ns  shall  seem to him   best.    Should   he; attempt.  as is   not   impossible:  to   interpose  his  royal   will   against the   operation of a  statute duly enacted,  and one in which  the masses  are so deeply   inlerestcd as  this Geary law. Mr. Cleveland will be in  " the way of getting  a rude shock to his  " self-esteem and a sudden enlightenment  " ;ts to the  limits of  the  powers  of the  "presidential ollice.    Though congress is  '' Democratic, it is American.and properly  "alive to its own authority and  dignity.  "Those eastern pietists   who delight in  " painting the Chinese as such angels of  "' light, should note their conduct toward  "each other in   the matter of the Geary  "Act.    When  the Chinese were .ordered  " to register, the Six Companies forbade  " them   to  obey   the   law.    Those.1  of  the  " Chinese!   who  desired   to   register   were  '���threatened with dealh.    Ma ny of those  " who   eliel   register are still   apparently  "afraid   that   the   American   authorities  " can not protect them from Chinese! ven-  ���'geance. But when thesupremecourt deci-  '" (led that I he Geary la w wasceinstitut ional  " the   Six   Companies   were disgract.'d  in  "Chinese   eyes.    The very day after the  "decision. Chinese printed placards were  "affixed    to till   the  walls of San   Ki-ait-  " cisco's  Chinese quarter,   oll'ering a   re-  " ward   of  three hundred dollars to any  " one  Avho should   kill Chun Chu,   presi-  " dent of theSam Vup. the most powerful  "of the Six Companies.

The outfit, of twelve; wagons hnel slopped  Mt :i point on the IV'eos river itlxntl  st'veii miles iiliove; the town of .Anion  Uhieo. \W hud sii|)pei-Miicl were sinokiiii!  our pipes, anil it was between sunset tuiil  dark when a yoiiiifc fellow about 20 yesar.*  old came i-i<Iint? up from the diivction n!  the. Comanche country. He was driisse-ci  like a cowboy, and what lew words lit  spoke: were; in !<o()d Kn^lisli. He rode ti|  to a .campfire around which live or six ot  ii*; were sitting, and after a- "Hood evening 'to all, dismounted and let his gay.e  wander about.  Teamster No. 5 .was a. Mexican half-breed  known 'us Big Pete;. He: gave a start oj  surprise as the stranger rode up. and I  heard hint cursing and muttering to'himself. Iiy ant I by the boy fixed'his gaze on  I'ete and kept it there for a long hall  minute. There was a-sort of smile on hi*  face which -made one think��� of the look ol  a wolf who had pursued a victim for hours  and was finally near enough to seize it.  ������Rifle, pistol, or knife?" he asked.'o!  I'ete, in a low. even voice.  The big .fellow looked around uneasily.  He: was no coward, as we all knew, but  the sudden appearance of the boy had  rattled him for a- moment. A full moon  was coming up, and Cliere would be light  enough for firearms. He was a-good shot,  but that long, sharp knife, was his favorite  weapon. .Besides, he was a "giant e-<mi-  pa red. to that slender but active looking  youth.  "The knife, and 1 will give you one  minute to say your prayers!'* shouted  I'ete as ho sprung up.  "Very well, .lust as you please!" quietly  replied the young man as lie unbridled his  horse and sent him away.  Not a- word was spoken by any of the  rest of us. We all rose up. but made mi  other move. Not a question was asked of  either man. It was the law of the plains.  One man hael the right to demand, satisfaction of another, by rifle, revolver, or  knife. As to the cause of the (piarrel.  why should wea.sk or careV Pete removed  his'belt aiid .jackctand sombrero, and tied  a handkerchief around his head. The  stranger'removed' the belt in which he  carried a couple of revolvers, threw aside  his sombrero, and walked off to a distance  of fifty feet. I'ete followed. I.yory man  in caiiip formed a circle-about the pair.  The moon made everything as plain as  elaylig.it;' The horses and mules were till  to the right of ns. Ho far as all could see.  tivvvy one stopped feeding anel gti/.ed  steadfastly at the circle.  "Heady!"  It was the stranger who called out, and  at the word both moved into the center of  the ring and menaced each other. A. light  te> the death with knives is a horrible  tiling to look at, and yet there is a magnetism about it which forces you to stand  and look till the end comes, Boxers move  about���.feint, advance, retreat, rush at  each other, and grapple. So it is with  men who light with knives. Back and  forth across the circle, round and round  it, their knives now aud then clashing together, and it was ten long minutes before  blood was drawn. With the lirst drop  came death.  No man called out. No man in the circle  moved out of his tracks. Some of the  horses came nearer and whinnied softly,  as if asking what it was all about, but this  we remembered afterward. Big I'ete was  working to make his great strength bring  him an advantage. If he could sie/e that  boy's right arm with his left hand and  hold it for five seconds the duel would be  ended. Thrice he attempted it aud thrice  he failed. Suddenly the boy found the  opening he had been seeking. So swiftly  that none of us could follow him he sprang  i'orward under the uplifted right arm,  there was the flash of a knife, and Big  Pete uttereel a groan and sank down.

It was fair, but no man answered. He  called his horse b.v a low whistle, slipped  on the bridle, and half a minute later was  cantering away to the east. Big I'ete had  wronged him. The law of the land would  mt give him satisfaction. The law of the  plains had a vesngi'd him. A grave beside  lhe I'eicos- a gneiss or two as to the si ranger's identity -that was all.  She Was a Widow.  It was at a circus in  au Ontario  town.  The performance had begun when a littli  >ld woman wearing a poke bonnet, white'  -<>tton   gloves, and   a   blue  calico   dress  -leppcd up to the ticket wagon, laid down  .'."i cents and held out her hand for a ticket,  "h'il'ty cents,   ma'am."  said   the wagon  man.  "I'm a widde.'iv' she replied.  "Can't help that."  ���"Bin a wi.deler lor-thirteen years."  "Ves. hut the price of ;i ticket is fit)  cents."  "Buried two .children sense I was a  wielder."  "J'liat makes no difference."-.  She picked up her-;") cents and took a  walk around au'd stopped at the wagon  again to hand it up and say :  "(limine a ticket to the show?"-  ���-..".Fiftycents, ma'am," replied!  the ma-ii.  "But I'm a widder."  "Voit told i.:e that before, but ..we make  no discount to'widows."  "They never pass the contri'bushun box  to me in church 'cause I'm a wielder. Bin  a widder for thirteen years."  "Well, you couldn't buy a. ticket for 25  cents if you had been a widow for,thirty  years," he said as he turned away.  She picked up her two bits and travelled  around the circus tent and stopped at the  wagon for the third time.  .."Ticket fur a   widder," she said  as she  'handed up her 2o cents.  "Look here, ma'am!" shouted the man,  "haven't I told you that; the price was :">()  cents, and that you couldn't buy a ticket  for lessr"  "Bin a. widder for thirteen years," she  calmly, implied.  "1 don't care if you have been a widow  from the cradle up! Don't bother -me.any  more!"  She took her money and went off in the  direction of the side show, where the fat  boy was on exhibition, and I entered the  circus tent. I had not been seated ovei  live minutes when something' from be  ne.-ith the seats pulled at my leg anil a  voice whispered:  "Stranger, hitch along to the left and  give a wielder a show!"  I not only hitched, but assisted the little  old woman in the poke bonnet to climb up  beside me. When she had got her breath  I asked:  "Did the man sell you a ticket for two  bits?"  "No.  lie; got no compassion on widdcrs."  "Then how did you get in ?"  "Same as I always do. Bin a widder  fur thirteen years, and I've crawled undei1  the canvas twelve seasons. Do you feel  like btiyin'a lone widder a glass of that  air lemonade ?"  An Unpaid Debt to a Dead President.  When president Garfield died civil  service reform was born. He was the  victim of savage passions engendered by  a pernicious political system, (.uiteuii  was no more insane than Havaillac, the  murderer of Henry IV., or Bellinghani.  the assassin, of Percival; and no more  rational than the; rattlesnake; or the tiger.  The beneficiaries of his bullet wisre neve r  suspected of complicity in his crime!, but  such was the inflammation of the public  mind that, had vice-president Arthur attempted to exercise executive functions,  as he was plainly warranted in doing by  the constitution, during the interval of  inability while Garfield lay for weeks  unable'to sign his name, there might  have been a revolution. The country  owes an unpaid debt to (he incomparable'  grace-, tact, and propriety which allayed  the resentments of a crisis that threatened social order with vengeance and reprisal.    Conscious of the hostile scrutiny  to which he was exposed, Arthur walked  with  constant   circumspection.    Had   he  been tin actor upon the; stage, each step,  word  anel   gesture could   not  have been  more appropriate.    Compelled   to  choose  between loyalty to 1'riendsliip and fielelity  to official trust, having discharged his obligations to one he remained unflinchingly  faithful te> the other..   He disarmed censure by the irresistible charm of his de-  memcanor and conquered respect by the  exhibition    of   intellectual   powers   that  wovo equal   to  every exigency.    He was"  fortunate   in   the  possession  of   patience  that was imperturbable and  temper that  .was   always   serene.    There   have;    been  'presidents who granted favors grudgingly,  resenting civility as an intrusion, repelled  companionship   by  formality  that  froze  the genial  currents of the son].    Arthur  could deny with a smile that soothed the  pang  of disappointment, and   no   visitor  ever left him after the most casual  interview without sentiments of cordial adnii  ration and personal regarel.  How to Determine Distance  at Sea.  The rules  for determining the distance  of objects seen at sea are very simple and  should be known by all. Suppose that the  eye of the observer is IS feet above the  level of the ocean.  In that case wo double  IS, which gives us W, the square root of  which is 0.    Therefore, the horizon lies at  a distance of six miles when  the observer  sees it from an elevation of IS feet.   From  a height of oO feet (which is about that of  the eye of an observer on a vessel the size  of the City of  Home)  we double  the  distance!   of  the eye  above;  sea  leve.'l. which  gives us (i(), the square root of which is 7.S.  Hence an object may be seen at a distance  of 7.S   miles   from   a  steamer of the size  mentioned.    If the  depth of the part of a  distant ship's  hull   below   the horizon   is  known, the distance of that ship beyond  the horizon is obtained in the  same way.  Then, suppose the depth  of the  part concealed   to be   12  feet,  then   we  take the  square   root of twice  12, or 21, giving-IS:  showing that the ship's distance  beyond  the horizon   is -I.!)'miles...   Hence,  if a ship  is sem\ with 12 feet of the hull down (that  is with  12  feet of the hull invisible.'), we  may correctly infer that its.distance is -l.i)  miles beyond the distance  of the horizon  which, b.v  the figures alone, is proved to  beat a distanceof 7.7 miles).    We add the  two sets of figui-(!s together and  find that  the incoming or-outgoing  vessel is 12 -"i-.l  miles a.way..  maliagerof the Metropolitan Underground  railroad.    The fact that they should have  been so munificently provided for by lord  Derby will certainly  tend to increase the  inqj ession that he considered  himself as  responsible for their existence.   Between  the now widowed   countess of Derby and  the present  marquis of Salisbury the bitterest animosity exists.    Its origin dates  back to  the time of her  marriage to his  father, whom she embittered  to such an  extent against him that he was not only  driven  from   heiiicath   the paternal  roof,  but also had hisallowaucestopped. which  rendered it necessary for him to do newspaper writing for a living.  It was in those  days that he tried his luck asagold digger  in   Australia,   but   without success:  and  the only   venture from  which   he derived  any .profit  was  that of literature!.    Lord  Salisbury not only holds the countess responsible for lhe hard times which he suffered  during his younger days, but also  detests lior for the dishonor which he considers   her   to   have    brought   upon   his  family name and escut< heon.     Indeed, to  such tin extent does he cany this animosity   against   his   stepmother,    that    the  reason   why  he   made so   little   protest  against  the expulsion  of  lord  Saekville  from Washington was because the envoy  in questiem   happened to be  the favorite  brother of the countess of Derby.

Was Atlantis America?  Ignatius Donnelly finds a supporter of  his Atlantis theory in sir Daniel Wilson,  president of the I'niversity ��� of Toronto,  who declares, after <-i ^roa-t dual of search,  that the lost Atlantis was not a myth,  bill that it was really the'continent of  America. He accounts for its disappearance from view in a different way. lint  that is merely incidental. Donnelly's  theory was that the land was submerged  by'some #reat yoleanic upheaval, and that  from those who escaped to the continents  of Europe and Asia came the tradition of  the deluge. Sir Daniel rejects this explanation as beiiitfdisproved by the fact  that there are no traces of such volcanic  action either on the continent or in the  ocean bed. lie believes that the ancient  Kgyptians. the most progressive and adventurous people of ancient times, discovered the continent, but that in the decline  both of their learning and power it became lost to yiew and existed at the time  our knowledge of lOgypt begins merely as  a shadowy tradition. It is his opinion  that traces of the Egyptians of. those days  ire to be sought in the ruined cities of  Jentral America whose origin has ntiver  been determined or even been made the  basis of any reasonable theory. Such a  discovery would furnish a substantial  basis for the legend of the lost Atlantis  and the theory invests those wonderful  ruins with a new interest for the antiquarians.           Lords of Doubtful Paternity.  It has been alleged that the father of  lords Arthur, Saekville,'and Lionel Cecil,  the half-brothers of the marquis of Salisbury, was not the late marquis, but lord  Derby, father of the present governor-  general of Canada, and color wascerfainly  lent to the statement by the fact that the  old marquis was going on toward seventy  at the time of the birth of the children of  I is second wife, a lady alino.-t halfacen-  ury his junior, and that she was known  to be the Kgeria in those days of lord  Derby, or. as he was then, ord Stanley, a  young fellow under thirt\ years of age.  Indeed, the intimacy be wwn the marchioness and lord Stanley created something very much akin to." public scaidal.  which only passed into < blivion wnen. a  lew months after becoi- ing a widow, the  dowager marchioness o. Salisbury became  the countess of Derby. Whether the old  marquis had any doul ts as to the paternity of the (hree bo\ s with which his  young wife had presented him. is not  known, but the fact , eniains that he left  them entirely uiipn vided for, and the  nresenl niaster of I'atliiild has refuseiNo  have anything wlatsocver to do with  the.ii.

The Stage From a Moral Standpoint.  Several noted actresses inadespeechcs in  Chicago ;i I'ew da.\'s ;ik<> on the theme ol"  "Women anil tlicKtap-e." Someol' their  remarks were most appropriate, but flit!  shrewdest remarks by tiny were made by  Miss (.'ayvan. who said :  ''The real elevation of the future must  come from the public, not from the profession. It must come from the purification  of public .sentiment, which shall refuse to  accept women whose onlr qualification as  stars is an appeal to morbid curiosity."  That is the true basis. As Ioiik as a  woman like the ".Jersey Lily," without  any talent, with nothing to recommend  her except some physical beauty and a  damaged reputation, can draw crowded  houses at double prices, the women of this  country have no right to say that stage  influence tire bad or the characters of actresses are sometimes under a cloud. We  think there are a good many woinyjn in  the world who blush now when they think  that they insisted upon going to see .Mrs.  hangtry'. Still, they knew just as much  about her when they'wentas they do now.  exee|>t at that time she had not become  so coarse as she has since. What the  artist said who spoke- in Chicago was true,  aikI that is. that a lady is as much of a  lady on   tin; stage as anywhere else, and  that the   influence of II   trite  ttlld   splendid   j   |llls received  his stock uf Spring and Summer SuifiiiKs,  woman    for   good   call    be    probably   Used   i anil   is  prepared   In  turn  nut  suits ns well   made  and  with   ...ore ell'ect on the stage than in al- I ">���"*" ��" "-v M,M'H"" ""' '" (!,l,"l,l���  llll.ist ail.V of licr sphere of life, I linker slrccl   l.iilsl wesl oflln- bridge), Nelson.  ���  Double Dressed,  Single Dressed,  Shiplap, Rustie, Ceiling,  Flooring, Laths, Shingles,  ALL    DIMENTIONS    OF    ROUGH.  nVLZEZROZHZ^JSTTS:  Having  bought  tin; slock  nf the Davie.-Sayward  Saw-  mill Coinpany  I am prepared lo furnish builders  with lumber of the above line.-.
