SECOND   YEAR.---NO. 28.  nelson, British: Columbia, Saturday, junk 2, isy+.  ONE  DOLLAR A YEAR.  THE   "SILVER-TONGUED"   ORATOR/  Holds Forth at Kaslo, and Tires His Audience,  as Usual,  Tlie speech delivered at Kaslo on Tuesday night by Lhe Vancouver World's  '".silver-longed orator ol" the interior,"  candidate Buchanan, was led ion's and  tiresome in the extreme; the issues discussed at any length being dead ones,  live ones being only referred to incidentally. A prominent government man  who sat through and heard it all pronounced the speech "rot." .John Keen  occupied the chair, and introduced the  speaker with Uie request that he be ac-  ' corded a quiet hearing and an enthusiastic reception. The hearing was quiet, but  the reception was not enthusiastic. The  speech had apparently been cu'refully prepared, and wits delivered in a sing-song,  lay-preacher manner.  Mr.'-Buchanan congratulated his hearers  that the building in which   they were assembled was being used   for  more  legitimate   purposes   than   formerly,   and  expressed regret that he would not be able  to discuss political questions with his opponent in the contest.    The only kind 'of  canvassing in whicli   he  believed, or for  which he had any capacity, was the  fair  discussion of tlie political issues involved  in   the'contest;   but he   afterwards  admitted that he had approached  and   hud  held converse with electors with reference  to their votes.   He endeavored to explain  his use af the toad-work patronage, and  said he was only .pursuing his usual policy  in providing .work for those who needed  it.   He referred to the state of the country, and said business had been blocked in  some way; he would have heeded friendly  advice, to stick to his shingles, but he had  entered politics in order to.clear away tlie  block so that ho might sell more shingles  and lumber in a prosperous country.  He then gavea.lengthy sketch of both  .parties in the province, and went away  back to the time, when'' Mr. Beaverr was  .premier.   He gave the old, old stories of  the Esquimalt.dry dock, the Esquimalt 6c  -Nanaiino rail way, and other ancient matters, of which nine-tenths of his audience,  had never hearikand the other tenth had  long ago   forgotten.    He   told   all   about  ���what Mr.Beaven didn't do when premier,  and what his successors did do, as far as  the authorities in his possession informed  him.    The stories he told and'the illustrations he gave may have been amusing a  decade ago,  when  first used in political  campaigns on tlie coast,  but "his. hearers  did not appreciate them, or if they did  they did not manifest it in the usual way.  He attempted an excuse tor the Nakusp &  Slocan scandal, and thought the government had made a good bargain, as  was  proved  by the verdict of the royal commission.    He could  not see how injustice  was done to Kootenay lake points by the  construction of ti  road  that '(liveried the  traffic northward to the Canadian Pacific.  Ho   favored   state-aided    railways,   and |  thought the province would  be justified  in borrowing three millions, or even ten  millions,  to  build railways and  develop  the 'province.-   lie said that Thh-Tkihunk  was quoted at tlie coast as authority for  the statement of undue expenditure and  profit by the construction of the ���Nakusp  & Slocan railway, but Thk TRiHiiXh: did  not venture to-j,'o before the royal commission to prove its'statements,    lie.was  in Victoria when the Nakusp railway bill  was passed, and saw no reason'to'use his  influence to hinder it. lie also stilted that  the interests of the mainland cities were  used'against'railways to the south from  Kootenay, while Victoria was indifferent,  not being much affected.  He favored the appointment of a competent and live man to represent the  province in London, as such a man would  be able to divert capital this way for investment, for which we wore til ways anxious. He would be quite willing to pay  $2(),(XK), or even $80,000,. a year for the  service. Any firm, having like interests,  would be willing to do the same.  He approved of most of the planks of  the opposition platform, but did not approve of the one that favored doing away  with private and special legislation. A  bill in that direction was defeated last  winter by the casting vote of the speaker.  It had been favored by Tun Thiiu'XK, but  he would doubt the wisdom of tiny act  opposed by such men as Heaven, Davie,  Cotton, and Higjfins. The lawyers, too.  he said, were against it; yet it hud been  airily accepted by the candidate of the  opposition.  Mr. Buchanan then spoke of his personal  relations to Kaslo. lie had demurred, at  first, to moving his business to Kaslo, but  since moving had endeavored to build up  the .town, and had his hand in everything.  He was not responsible for the boom, and  hud dissuaded iiiany from building on  speculation. He told, withniuch self-  complacency, of the enterprises he had  aided and of the contributions he had  made. He had subscribed to the church;  hud assisted the powder works; had given  Mr. Clymo lumber at cost; had employed  labor as long as was possible. He was not  responsible'for the depression; and he.  individually, would come through it all  right. He believed the Kaslo 6c Slocan  railway would be built, and Kaslo, in  time, would again be a flourishing city.  He concluded his speech with an appeal  for support.  Mr. Carney was then called for. lie  compared candidate Buchanan to Black-  stone, Gladstone, O'Connell, and Emmett,  and was especially proud of him. The  side he was on would fight to the end;  they asked   no quarter and   would  give  Ei. Ketallack moved and I). C. McGregor  seconded a resolution approving'Mr. Buchanan's speech and endorsing his candidature.' The 'chairman put the question  and decided it carried.  NEW   DENVER   NEWS.

Boats can now be accommodated in Tom  Mulvey's house at Slocan City.  Important negotiations have been going  on in New Denver this week  with regard  to the Alpha and Black Bear claims.   The  third -payment on N. F. McNaiight's bond  was not made, despite the statement in  this correspondence to the contrary. Matters wore so arranged that the time was  extended to the 27th of Mny.    As tlie date  approached a capitalist,:in  the person of  ���Air. 'Mackenzie,  appeared,   who  had  the  money ready to turn over if everything  was satisfactory.    In company with N. F.  AlcNaught,J. N. McNaught,CharlieLaatz,  .1.  Briggs,  and   Air. Milliken, the expert,  ��� Mi'. Mackenzie,  visited the mine.    By all  reports   its   appearance  was   more  than  ���satisfactory.     But   some   difficulties   appear to have ariseu'between the AlcNaught  and    Mackenzie    interest.     The   parties  have till gone out to Nelson where it isex-  ���pe'eted a ���'new deal will be made.  New Den ver received a flying visit from  captain' Moore and Air. AlcFerran last,  week. It was the captain's first visit and  he was enchanted with the place and his  first action was to look over the list of  houses to rent. The syndicate which captain Moore represents is going to make  things hum in the Twin Lake basin this  ���this year. A concentrating plant of 100  tons capacity has already been shipped,  and a, wagon road is to be built to the  claims. Captain Aloore has acquired the  St. John interest in the Idaho and St.  John and a half interest in the Twin  Lakes. He i.s said to be negotiating for  the purchase of the Queen Bess. Engineer Twigge has been employed to take  levels and' make a preliminary survey for  the concentrator site.  J. J. Moynahan has started operations'  on the Wakefield and Cazuabazua, and  has acquired some of G. W. Hughes' stock  for packing 'supplies, up Four-mile creek.  A good part of George Hughes' stock  hits already been transported to the foot  of the lake! The effect on .Jim Black's old  bachelor horse of so much society passing  through town-was strange and. startling.  A. E. Hodgiiis of Nelson has been engaged for the past few days on the New  Denver and Three Fork's wagon road.  Only two bridges remain between the two  points, and the condition of the road between New Denver and the canyon i.s  enough to make an engineer's hair turn  grey. Eor a considerable, distance the  creek has taken the road as its main  channel, in other places it has undermined it and cut it out. Air. Hodginsdoes  not anticipate'much trouble in bridging  the canyon or repairing the road, but  nothing can be done until the creek goes  down some.  Carpenter creek has never been known  to be so high before. Great devastation  has been done among the cabins and  gardens on the Hut. A jamb formed some  distance below Josephine street and the  creek swung round in a new direction. It  was a grand sight to see it carving out a  new course for itself, undermining huge  trees and carrying them out bodily into  the lake. For three days a gang of men  were at work with dynamite keeping the  channel clear, and through their exertions  the damage done to property on the flat  was not so great as it otherwise would  have been.  Trackiaying on the Nakusp <fc Sloc-in is  proceeding at the average rate of half a  mile u day. The road will be at the head  of the lake before the 1st of July.  Wilson Creek i.s in high flood, and judge  Wilson has had to abandon his cabin.  Some damage appeal's to have been done  to the cribwork in the bed of the creek  which is to support the railroad track.  Mr. Taylor, late of Nelson, got his cows  safely across to Now Denver, and fresh  milk is now the order of Lhe day.  The excessive heat of lust week ended  in a thunderstorm and since then it has  been cooler.    But it is still very warm.  Messrs. J. C. Davenport. B. Ewart, and  W. E. Mann have arrived iu New Denver  and tire about to pay it visit to the Fisher  Maiden group on Four-mile creek, in which  they are interested.  A Peculiar Case.  A peculiar case i.s on trial at Olyinpia,  Washington. In ISS1 a man named Scott  left Olyinpia, where he possessed considerable property, and made a home at  Alereed, California. He was believed to  be dead, and the probate court at Olyinpia administered on the estate. Scott returned to Olyinpia about two years ago,  only to find all his property sold. He  commenced action to recover his property  by an ejectment suit, but the judge refused to admit his testimony holding that  the probate court, having administered  on the estate, the superior court must  consider Scott legally detul. The supreme  court of the state affirmed the lower  court, and the case went to the United  States supi erne court on the constitutional  ground that Scott had been deprived of  his property without due process of law.  The United 'States supreme court reversed  the decision of the state courts, and now  Scott is considered legally Hive.  "What  Is  the  True   Purpose  of Education  the State?  The. British   parliament  has  passed  a  special  act introducing manual  training  into all the  common schools of the kingdom.   This has been largely owing to the  efforts of women on English school boards.  English women take much more part  in  school work than American or Canadian  women.     Three   ladies  tire  members  of  the   London   school   board,  and   women  serve on many other school boards.   Com-'  menting on   the introduction  of manual;  training in the schools of San   Francisco,  The Argonaut says:  "'The  introduction of u':system.'of manual   training  into  the public, schools   is  opposed   by  two classes of people.   The  one class does not understand just what is  meant   by   manual   training;'  the   other  class does not understand just what is the  true purpose of education.    Those objectors who do not appreciate.the difference  between manual training and technical or  industrial training, declare that the public schools, being supported  by  the  taxation of  the  whole people,'must confine  their activity to education, as  it affects  the community and not the  individual:  that they shojild prepare .the pupil for an  intelligent performance of the duties of  citizenship and not for his individual industrial occupation.   This is a.just statement of what should  be the aim  of the  public school.    Knowledge of a trade is  of inestimable value to the  young man,  but such education forms no proper part  of   the   public-school   curriculum.     The  specialization of industrial effort destroys  the apprentice system.   Some substitute  must be developed if the skilled laborer,  who has scientific knowledge of his work  and an artistic interest in its product, is  not to become obsolete.   This is the work  of  technical schools, however, and  they  should be established and maintained by  private enterprise.  "The  manual training, however,   does  not seek  to turn out expert carpenters,  '.'machinists, or blacksmiths.    Its true aim  is  to educate the mind, and "the various  courses are so arranged that they develop  the -power'"'of concentration,   the ".sense  of   order,   the   spirit   of exactness,   the  appreciation   of    form  and    proportion.  Tools    are    used,    but    not    so     much  that  familiarity in" their use may be acquired as because the use of tools exercises  tnese faculties of the mind in a different  'manner from that in which they are exercised in textbook studies. A recent writer  oil this subject clearly states  the  nature  of manual training.    As a means of education, he says, it consists in  the study  and   use of toys,  tools, and   machinery,  such  as are 'adapted   to the age of the  .pupil and the opportunities and surroundings.    If is the development and training  of the ���mind  by the use of beads, papers,  blocks, and toys in the kindergarten; by  the use of the pencil, the knife, the chisel,  and  the plane in .a'later period; and the  use of engines, lathes,  forges,  foundries,  and machine-shops in the end. This threefold  classification  of the instruments of  instruction may be taken as corresponding to primary, grammar, and high-school  grades.   Throughout, the aim is to train  the mind.    It is true that the manual dexterity   acquired   by  such   training  i.s of  value to the physical laborer, just.us the  knowledge of arithmetic acquired in tlie  schools is of value  to the bookkeeper or  banker, and it is well that it is so.    But  in both cases the advantage is merely incidental.  "The instruction by means of text-books  and recitations alone has long been recognized by educators as incomplete, it  trains the memory, but the other faculties  of the mind do not receive proper attention ; it does not offer sufficient opportunity for the practical application of the information gained, and .information does  not become actual knowledge until it is  applied; it fails to sustain the interest of  the pupil, and the development of the  power of concentration is thus retarded:  it does not properly prepare the pupil for  actual life, the disproportionate attention  given to book-learning encouraging the  pupil to look upon physical labor as undignified. In all these directions manual  training supplements text-book training  and remedies its defects. The variety  that is given to tlie studies maintains the  interest in all; the pride in seeing material results from his own efforts encourages  the pupil to renewed effort. To work-  side by side with the pupil who may in  after life become a merchant or foi low  one of the learned professions, to see  teachers and pupils alike interested in  manual labor, to take an interest in the  artistic aspect of his work, must inspire  in the pupil an appreciation of thedignity  of labor. These lesults, which would be  looked for in any theoretical consideration of manual training, have been actually found to flow from it wherever it has  been practically applied."  WAITING   ON   ENGLAND.  The   Ruling Class of'Great Britain  Will  not  Assist in the Remonetization of Silver.  The question of international bimetallism presents some peculiarly interesting  features, says the Atlanta Constitution.  It i.s a question on which a good deal of  light may be shed by those who have hid  their   goldbug  principles behind  it.    As  the matter stands, there are a great many  dark places iu the project that need illuminating,   it is not by any means a new  question.    It has been considered and discussed   from all possible  points of view.  Nevertheless at this moment and by the  light of current events it assumes an entirely new aspect.    It becomes interesting  by reason of the mystery that is thrown  around  it.   We therefore appeal  to the  financial Tories who are ''making much of  benevolence is to be performed only when  England concludes to present to the rest  of the world (lie trifling sum of $."500,000.-  000 ti year, which represents the profits  that accrue lo Great Britain's ruling class  as the result of the demonetization of  silver.

The colonial treasurer of New Zealand  made u stutement in his speech ut Otago  on May 2nd which ought to make every  British Columbian positively green with  envy. He said there was a surplus of  over $1,000,000, and on the basis of the  past three years' public works expenditure there was more than sufficient money  available for ordinary dc|mrlmculul expenditure, the completion of railways and  the construction of rouds. to open uplands  for settlement: further that the finances  of the country had never been in a sounder  nor more nourishing condition. The government of New Zealand builds railways  and owns them; the government of British Columbia builds railways and gives  them away to its particular friends.  only in the United States, but in America,  is in a crippled condition and growing  worse. It is absolutely essential then, if  the European Shylocks are to dictate our  financial laws and fix our currency system to suit themselves, to know when the  event is to occur.  But this is not all. There is another  question that is still" more important. In  the nature of things it may happen that  England will not agree to surrender the  advantages she now has���that her ruling  class will notconsent to forego the golden  profits that are now flowing into their  pockets. "What then? The American  Tories say that there is no possible way  to restore silver as a part of our money  except by international' agreement. Are  we to conclude that if England fails to recede from a position which she has firmly  held for years or refuses to change conditions that she has been striving for half a  century to bring about.we are to accept  these conditions and suffer the attendant  and inevitable losses merely because the  financial Tories have assumed that, the  United States cannot open its mints to  the free coinage of silver?      '  England's first pflicial replyto the petitions of the bimetallists is a contemptuous one. The question has been kicked  out of court. The house of commons refused to discuss it. There is no longer  any concealment in the matter. There i.s  no longer any reason why England should  .have any. concealment in the'.���nja.-'fceiv  There is no longer any reason why British interests should pretend to be anxious  to increase the use of silver as a. money  metal or to restore its money functions.  Having made tremendous sacrifices of its  own iu India in order to drive the United  States to the single gold standard, there  is no longer any reason why the house of  commons or any other department of the  government should engage in an effort to  deceive us. Consequently, when the question of bimetallism i.s presented for discussion in the house, the "faithful commons"���more faithful to the ruling-class  than to tlie people���incontinently kick it  but and refuse to consider it.  We should think that this action of the  commons would put a very large flea in  the ear of .those who pretend to believe  that England is about to surrender the  fruits of the victory it_ has won at the  expense of much conspiring and maneuvering.' At any rate, the event that has  just occurred in the house of commons  ought to open the- eyes of our own people  to the futility of any hope or belief that  England is likely to make any move that  will divert from her coffers theconstantly  increasing treasure that the single gold  standard is pouring into them.  Whatever the American Tories may  say, the fact remains that the constantly  increasing value of gold is making Eng-I  land richer. Her home interests are infinitely more powerful and important  than her colonial interests, and it is her  fixed and unalterable policy to sacrifice  the  latter  to  the   former  whenever the  necessity .arises. We have lately seeu a  remarkable example of that policy.  Under the stimulus of the single silver  standard the manufacturing industries of  India were rapidly taking away from  Lancashire the rich trade of the east.  The appreciation of gold was a premium  to the Indian manufacturers aud enabled  them to undersell Lancashire in China  and the markets of the east to just the  extent of the difference between the value  of gold aud silver.  England did not hesitate to sacrifice her  Indian interests to those of Lancashire,  particularly when the policy she adopted  was likely to influence the United States  in repealing the Sherman law. She closed  the government mints iu India to silver  and in effect placed the currency system  in that country on the gold standard, precipitated the silver panic that wrought  ruin to the United States, and which is  sure to bring ruin to Canada, and sat herself down to the enjoyments of securing  the former's cotton and the hitter's wheat  at half price.  In the face of till this there are men  among us who pretend to believe and are  trying to make the people believe that  England is now getting ready to surrender the immense advantages she has ae-  quired by conspiracy, by diplomacy, and  by the sacrifice of important interests in  India. There are Tories on this side of  the Atlantic who insist that America is  not able to put in operation and maintain  acurrency system fitted to the needs of  its people and to the interests of its trade  and commerce. There are professed bi-  metallists who pretend (hat the people of  America must rest in depression and despair until England shall lie generous  enough to give the signal of relief by  graciously permitting Americans to enlarge their money basis.    And this act of  the former pursues the same policy as the  latter in the way of expending large sums  on. publ ic works.    11 says:  "Five years ago "West Kootenay was a  wilderness, when Nelson  and  Kaslo  and  all the rest of the aspiring towns  there  were unknown and unthought of.    There  was practically no communication into it.  Today we find six or seven   well established   lines of communication, with several more immediately in  prospect.    W'e  find a number of budding aud promising  towns and a  rapidly growing and sturdy  population of about 10,000, numerous mining camps, large quantities of ore  being  shipped,'and Vill the evidences of a growing community, with -prospects of. being  second to none in importance in the province.    Such progress is phenomenal even  in the West, and was not possible without  large  expenditures   from   the  provincial  treasury, which i.s reaping'in return substantial revenues from the district.    Had  the government 'stopped  to consider the.  balancing   of   revenue   and   expenditure  .'-West''Kootenay would have been, .com-,  paratively speaking, a wilderness today."  Five   years   ago,   although   Kaslo  was  not on  the map. West Kootenay was far  from being a wilderness.  True, the means  of getting in and  put oi:  the  towns and  camps on Kootenay lake were not as good  'as. they are  today;  but would   they not  have been better earlier hud not the provincial government sought to impose impossible conditions on the men w ho were  ready   and   willing  to give  the country  railway connections?    If West Kootenay  has'"a rapidly growing and sturdy population of about 10,000," why is it that the  Davie government did not recognize that  fact when apportioning the district representation at the lust session of the 'assembly?- Why \va.s u district "with prospects  of being'second to none in importance in  the province" given tho same'representation  as  districts whose prospects tire not  bright-and whose nopulation is less than  a fifth of that credited   to   West  Kootenay?    "Had  the government stopped to  consider the balancing of revenue and expenditure   West   Kootenay   would   have  been, comparatively speuking, u wilderness  today,"  is good,  coming   from The  Colonist.     Three   years   ago  the Slocan  section of West Kootenay was a wilderness, .which it would  be today for aught  the   provincial   government  litis  done to  make it otherwise.    Did Mr. Da-vie or any  of his subordinates iu office penetrate that  wilderness ahead of the hardy prospectors  who located  mineral claims there  in   the  full of I SOI ?    Did Mr. Da vie's government  build the first trail into that  wilderness,  or the first wagon road  into it?    Hardly!  That West Kootenay owes anything to  either  Mr.   Davie  or  his  government;   is  doubtful: for everything that its people  .wore fairly-entitled   to had. to be forced  from  his government,  and   every  dollar  that has been expended in  the district by  the province was revenue paid   into the  provincial treasury by the men who are  making West Kootenay a  habitable portion of British Columbia.

JOHNSON, commissioner of'customs.  if the machinery on the above list was  manufactured in .-Canada''.in LS0I, what  sense is there in now asking ,mining .men  for u list of mining machinery not on that  list? No matter what kind of. machinery  is imported, the collector of customs  would, by referring to the above list,  answer all mining men seeking to bringiti  machinery with: "Why, like machinery is  .manufactured, in Canada; you .must' pay  the duty,'' If a mine owner, from experience, believed that a "Hazelton.'sectional, tripod boiler" and a "'Knowles  patent vertical sinking steam pump" were  best adapted for sinking a prospecting  shaft on his mine, he would be told at the  custom house that machinery that would  answer'the purpose was made in Canada,  and that he would therefore have to pay  duty on his tripod boiler and sinking  .pump.- If a mill man, I'roin experience,  believed that a '"J'Yuser ifc Chalmers 'gold  mill with Frue vanners" was bestadapted  for working tlie ore produced by his mine,  he would be told at the custom house that  the .Jenckes Machine Company of Sher-  brooke. Quebec, manufactured "wet-'and  dry pulverizers for gold ores." If u  smelter man brought a wrotight-iron  water jacket smelting, furnace with  Devereiix patent .adjustable tu.yeres to  the custom bouse, he would be told that  all kiudsof smelting machinery was manufactured in -Canada, and he would have to  pay duly. And so .on through the entire  list of machinery used in the mining industry.  What the mine owners of British Columbia ask for. is the'privilogo'of purchasing', the machinery best adapted, to the  uses for whicli it is intended, and that  such machinery be admitted duty free  for a limited period of time: say for three  years. From experience they know that  plants furnished by half a dozen different  manufacturers do not work as sutisfac-  torily tis plants thature turned out entire  by one manufacturer.  'If Mr. Mara  free admission  used   in mine--,  period of three  would  of all  mills,  years.  only insist on the  machinery actually  and smelters, for a  he would voice the  wishes of his constituents iu Kootenay.

Pioneer vs.  Latter-Day Statesmen,  long review of the political issues  ���resent campaign   in  this province,  ireniii'i" Davie's per  il! a  of I.he  the Victoria Colonist.

Judging by the  ���'standard of practical government." to  use the Colonist's own words, the statesmen who have been managing the; province's affairs in recent, years have pursued  a diametrically opposite policy to those  pioneer statesmen.

Whereas, the men that u]ihuiltthe Dominion of Canada  we're nol of one nativilv, and if a healthy patriotic  sentiment is to prevail, and only by the growth ol  such asenlimenl can Canada take a place among Kng-  lish-spcaking nations, the responsibilities of government  must be entrusted to men of known capacity, and not to  men who by accident of birth imagine themselves rulers  bv Divine right.   Therefore, be it resolved���  "First. Thai we hold as reprehensible the practice of  appointing non-residents to ollicial positions iu interior  districts, and we maintain that all oilices, where practicable. Should be lilleil by residents of the district wherein  the ollicial performs duty.  Second. Special and private legislation not only consumes too great a part ot the time thatshould be devoted  lo the consideration of public measures, but it, lends to  practices that tend lo lessen eoiilidence in the integrity  of the legislative assembly, and through it an insidious  poison is disseminated Unit in time will Unci its way  throughout the whole organism of the body politic:  therefore, wo favor the enactment of general lawn that  will reduce to a minimum special legislation and do  away with private legislation altogether.  Third. The interests of the province were not  safe-guarded in the agreement between the government  and the Nakuspi& Sloean Railway Company, and the  policy of the.government in pledging the credit of the  province, in order that speculative companies may prolit  lherebv, is to be condemned,  c Fourth. After making provision for the payment of  the running expenses ot the government, expenditures  should bo confined solely to the buililing and betterment  of wagon roads and other works that are for the free use  and benefit of the publio-at-large, leaving to private enterprise the construction and operation of railways and  all other undertakings for the use of which the public  are required to pay.  Fifth. The speedy adjustment of the difl'ercnccs between the province and the Dominion, to the end that  the land within the railway belt along the Canadian  Pacific railway be. thrown open to settlement under the  land laws of the province: the amendment of the Land,  Act so that it will be an equitable contract between  the province and the settloiy.climinating all discretionary  powers of the chief commissioner of lauds and works;  also amending it so as to permit the outright purchase of  small tracts in all unsurveyed mountainous districts.  Sixth. The timber lands of the province -should' be  held in trust for the future needs of its people, and not  handed over, under long leases, to speculative mill owners as a saleable asset.  Seventh. The development of the mining industry  should not be hampered by legislation that makes the  procurement of title lo surface rights impossible: that  levies unequal taxation on working miners: and that  makes it ditlicult lo compel delinquent co-owners lo pay  their share of assessment, work; therefore, we favor the  repeal of sections 8 and l;1.\ of the Mineral Act and a  revision of the sections relating to mining partnerships.  Kighth. The passage of an act whereby water rights  for any speeilic purpose maybe obtained as readily as  such rights are now obtained for mining purposes under  the provisions of the Mineral Act.  Ninth. The establishment of a land registry for Kootenay district. .  Tenth. The holding in lvootenay district of terms ot  the county court at short, intervals; extending the  power to issue capias to registrars of county courts in  districts in which there are no resident judges; and the  passage of an act that will allow the collection of small  debts iu courts composed of justices of the peace.  Kleventh. The extortions to which laborers on railway  construction and other works are compelled to submit,  through tlie issuance of time-cheeks, is alike discreditable to the men who prolit by such practices and to the  government that makes no ell'ort to render such practices  impossible. The issuance of non-negotiable time-checks  should be made a punishable oti'ence, and the issuance of  negotiable time-checks should only be allowable under a  law that would safeguard the rights of the party to whom  they are issued.  Twelfth. Contractors and sub-contractors on railways  should have a ineans of getting speedy redress from unjust classification and unfair measurement of work by  lhe appointment of an ollicial arbitrator who shall be  a practical engineer.  Thirteenth. The government is to be condemned for  the passage of a redistribution act that is not uniform in  its provisions, and by which representation is neither  based on population, voting strength, nor contributed  revenue.  '  Resolved, that, the attention of the government is  called to the necessity of having paid constables stationed  at points on the International boundary line like Ry-  kcrt's and Waneta.  Resolved, that it is of the utmost importance that trails  and wagon roads be built to connect all mining camps in  West Kootenay with transportation routes that are open  the year round".  Resolved, that, the nominee of this convention be required to pledgehiinself to tlo his utmost to carry out the  .views expressed in the resolutions adopted by this convention, and that each delegate to this convention make  every .effort to secure the election of the nominee of the  convention.  Resolved, that the lands embraced within railway  grants should be immediately surveyed, in order thai  Ihey he open to settlement.  Resolved, that the people living in the valley of Kootenay river between the hike and the International bound-  dnry line and those living in Fire Valley on the west side  of Lower Arrow lake arc justly entitled to mail facilities,  and that we deem it a duty to urge that postolllces be  established at. My kerfs custom-house and at a central  point, in Fire Valley.  LETTER   OF   ACCEPTANCE.  .Vi:i.soX.

'I'll  ac-  as-  ot>-  :d 1  of  cm  rn-  lor  THE   ENEMY   OF   THE   MINE   OWNER.  The issue (Ui wliicli .J. .M. Kellic secured  liis  election  to  tlie  legislative  assembly  i'rom West Kootenay in IS!M) was one tluit  a fleeted tlie rights of owners of  mineral  claims.    The government  then in power  was the same us is now in power, with u  single exception.    Theodore  Davie was a  meinberof it.  Theodore Ouvio isa member  of the government that i.s striving today  to retain power for the next  four  years.  In    1S!K)  the  issue that affected the owners of mineral  claims  was  the readiness  with whicli  the government  was   willing  to sacrifice the interests of mine owners  for the benefit of railways.    The government  was  willing  that  railways  should  have  the  right  for  twenty-live years to  exact and collect a percentage not exceeding ;") per cent over and above working expenses on gold and silver extracted from  ores  found  upon any   lands grunted  to  railways under the Railway Aid Act.  The owners of mineral claims, to a man,  opposed the government on the issue, and  elected Mr. Kellic.  The obnoxious legislation was repealed;  but, like all small-minded and vindictive  .men, the leaders of, the government  neither forget nor forgive. They have  not forgotten that the miners of West  Kootenay commenced the, agitation that  compelled them to repeal legislation that  they favored, and, during the lust four  yours, have continually' sought to engraft  pernicious and objectionable sections on  the Mineral'-Act.'"' One of the most objectionable of these sections is one that premier Davie does not hesitate to say is a  child of his brain. It is section 45 A, and  under its provisions the owner of a .mineral claim-is not.entitled to surface rights.  The surface rights remain vested in the  crown, and may be granted or disposed of  as is provided by the land laws for the  time being in'force.- The decision rendered  by judge Spinks in the Hughes vs. Bonson  ease ut the last session of the county  court at Nelson clearly shows what rights  mineowners have; they have no exclusive  rights to even the timber that grows on  their claims.  Mr. Buchanan, the nominee of the government party in the south riding of  West Kootonay, distinctly states that he  believes the government is worthy of support by the electorate of the riding, and  the electorate is composed largely of men  whose interests are affected by the decision of judge Spinks referred to above.  Mr. ilume, the candidate of the opposition, is pledged to work for the repeal of  section 45 A, as is shown by the platform  of principles adopted by the convention  which nominated him.  Tlie issue is as important to miners aud  mine owners as was the issue in 1S90. The  present government is not now, nor has it  ever been, the friend of the mine owner;  but it is, and always has been, the friend  of railway corporations.  Thk men who support G. O. Buchanan  profess to believe that West Kootenay  will languish if government money is not  expended, within the district, and in order  to get that money the present government must be kept in office. The. men  who support J. F. Hume believe that the  material resources of the district have,  so far, been developed by individual effort, and that if the district is to make  progress in the future, individual effort,  and not government pap, will be the force  which will doit. One mine, even though  it works but twenty men the year round,  i.s worth more to West Kootenay than all  the government appropriations that have  yet been spent in the district. Bap suckers  have never yet made a country, and they  will not make one out of West Kootenay.  Thk issue in this district is well defined.  The government party favors curtailing  the rights of mine owners; the opposition party favors restoring to mineowners  all rights wrongfully taken from them by  legislation. Cf. O. Buchanan is the nominee of the government party; J. F. Hume  is the nominee of the opposition party.  Ti IK supporters of Mr. Buchanan are  "gentlemen," and the supporters of Mr.  Hume are of the "middle class." The  great middle class far outnumber the gentlemen in all English-speaking countries  except the south riding of West Kootenay.  Which is the more likely to work for  the best interests of the people of West  Kootenay: G. O. Buchanan, a candidate  who begged for a nomination���yea, was  even willing to accept one no matter from  which party it came; or J. Fred Hume,  whose nomination was secured without  effort on his part? Mr. Buchanan is representative of the office-seeking class;  Mr. .Hume of the class who have office  thrust upon them.  SHORT   STORIES.  In a case when; a man was accused of  forgery, a witness for the defense managed to say: '"I know that the prisoner  cannot write his own name." "All that  is excluded," said the judge; "the prisoner is not charged with writing his own  name, but that of someone else!"  Lord Kllonborough was famous for sarcastic speeches to counsel who consumed  his time to no purpose. Mr. I'reston was  a great conveyancer, but not a brilliant  advocate. On one occasion, having indicted on the court an unspeakably dry  orution, towards the close of the day he  asked when it would be their lordships'  pleasure to hour the remainder of his argument. Lord Mllonborough uttered a  sigh of resignation and answered: "We  are bound to hear you, anel we will endeavor to give you our undivided attention on I'Yiday next; but us for pleasure,  that, sir, has been long out of the question."    This tale i.s told in the Kast: A lady one  day found a man following her, and she  asked him why he did so. His reply was:  "You arc very beautiful, and I am in love  with you." "Oh! you think me beautiful,  doyott? There is my sister over there;  you will find her much more beau ti fid  than I inn. Go and make love to her."  On hearing litis the man went to see the  sister, but found she was very ugly; so  he came back in an angry mood, and asked  the lady why she had told him a falsehood.    She  then answered:    "Why did  you tell me a falsehood?" The man was  surprised at this accusation, and asked  when he had done so. iler answer was:  "You said you loved me. If that had  been true you would not have gone to  make love to another woman.  Years ago, when Tom Thumb was Bar-  tuini's only attraction, he went to Saratoga.and'attempted to give an entertainment'.- The village fathers, however,  scared liini away by the price of their  license, and he went to Ballston, the next  town, and advertised the performance.  A special train was run from Saratoga,  and a great many went down on it. When  the curtain went up, Barnaul came out  aud. .made a little speech." Ladies and  gentlemen," he began, "it was my lirst intention to give this entertainment in,Saratoga, but I soon discovered that there  were some men in that place so much  smaller than my faniousTom Thumb, that  it would be useless to attempt com petit ion  with them." ���'_ '  The Oldest Man in Canada.  William Chambers of Dawn Mills, Ontario, who has been visiting his son at St.  Joseph, Missouri, arrived in Winnipeg  last week and .".proceeded' west to. visit a  daughter, Mrs. John Smithall, at Portage  la Bruirie. Mr. Chambers was born in  country Antrim, Ireland, on the 12th day  of September, 1787, so if he lives until the  12th day of the coming September he will  be 107 years old, and is supposed to be the  oldest man in Canada. The venerable old  gentleman is endowed with a splendid  memory and talks interestingly of his  battles with the world since boyhood. In  the year 1S08, at the age of 21 he enlisted  in his majesty's service as a cavalryman,  serving until Waterloo was won. When  asked by a Free Press reporter about that  memorable battle the old veteran brightened up and for a moment the lire .of youth  returned. "Yes; I was in every action in  that war, and 1 Was one of the troop  drawn up on shore, when they put Napoleon on the ship to send him away," remarked the centenarian   with emphasis.  "Do you feel as if you could stay-in the  race much longer?" queried the reporter.  "Oh, yes; some of the folks down below  were bound to have a doctor come and  look me over. When he was through I  asked him how long before I'd need, another overhauling and he said if 1 took  good care of myself and did not catch any  bad colds it would be sixteen or seventeen  years before I need send for him again."  Mr. Chambers left the city of Dublin on  Christmas, day,- .182(5, sailing for America.  After visiting New York and Boston he;  went to Ontario and settled on a farm,  cleaning up the timber land in the summer and working in the woods for a big  Quebec lumbering firm in the winter.  This work he followed for fifty consecutive years. He has been married twice  and has a large family of children, but his  wives are both dead, the lastone yielding  to the grim reaper 10 years ago. The old  gentleman is now spending his declining  years in travelling around visi ing his  children, to whom he seems very much attached. "I tell you my boy "Bill' is a  capital chap" he remarked heartily when  a reference to his family was made. Mr.  Chambers litis been successful in accumulating this world's goods, but he. doesn't  believe in the frivolities and vanities of  the present age and still clings to the old  red handkerchief as a medium for carrying wardrobe and toilet requisites. Many  people called to see him at the station and  when he left he carried with him the best  wishes of all who had an opportunity of  grasping his hand.  A Long-Headed Girl.  There was a young man in 'Winnipeg  who had a girl friend. He went to see her  at irregular intervals. He made his last  call one day last week. She had some  wedding cakefrom the nuptials of a friend  of her's, and she was telling him of a new  way she had discovered for finding out  whether you were going to get married  within a year.  "I will take some of this cake," she said,  "and put it in this envelope, and 1 will  take seven slips of paper and write on six  of them the names of six girls you know,  any one of whom you are likely to marry.  The seventh 1 will leave blank. Then I  will put the slips in the envelope with the  wedding cake and give the whole thing  to you. Now, you must take it and put  it under your pillow when you go home.  In the morning, the very first thing after  you open your eyes, you must take out  one slip. Do this for seven mornings in  succession, and on the last slip will be the  name of the girl you are sure to inairy.  If the blank comes lust you will never  marry."  The young man was quite impressed  with the scheme. He took tlie envelope  and promised faithfully to fulfill all tlie  conditions and to come back and report  at the end of seven days. He went home  and put the envelope under his pillow.  iN'ext morning he drew out a slip and on  it was the name of the girl who hud given  the charm to him. He thought that that  was pretty tough luck, for he really liked  the girl very much. He was out ratlin*  late next night, and when he awoke he  was in a hurry and forgot all about the  charm. When he got home that nigl t,  he began thinking the matter over aid  wondering who tho other girls were.  He got the envelope and peered into it.  The slips were all carefully folded, and he  could not see a name. Then his curiosity  got the upper hand. He took out all the  slips and unfolded them. All of the remaining six hud names on them, and in  each instance the name was that of the  girl who hud prepared the charm. He sat  down and thought long and earnestly.  Then lie put on his evening clothes anil  went straight up to that girl's house. lit!  staid a long time, and when he came away  he was smiling and happy, and there is  going to be a wedding on the west side  one of those days! There is a girl who  has a long head.  THE   WHITE  GIBL.  It was a bright morn ing of late summer.  A broad, salt-smelling heath lay between  the bowlder-heaped cliff-land und the  sen���the naked sea whose tumbling expanse no foot had ever trod ; the uupassed  country lying away forever nowhither, to  the mouth of the sun's own cave perhaps,  indeed, nowhither. Above it the sky,  blue - blue as lhe sen was green���across  whicli Hew young white clouds, us white  its the fleeces of the sea.  The spearman eu.me.up from the sea, almost a boy. with only the .'.first blushof a"  beard upon him. It was commonly expected among the tribesmen that the  spearman would one day be their headman. Mow near or remote that flay  might be they could not tell, for the 'reigning headman showed no sign as yet of  flagging strength, still taking his tithe of  meat and wives with no hesitating hand.  And as to the spearman, he was lithe if  slight, agile if not of great strength, and  his courage turned aside for no 'beast that  .glared.-. His 'burden, as lie came up from  thesea, was unwonted���a womanish load.  "The ..'unsurpassed spearman hail been  'scraping ��� among "the mud of the water-  edge like a, bearer of children.' He made  little of the clams he carried upen tray of  woven osier, the fresh harvest of his labor  since sunrise, though they were plentiful  enough even, one would say, easily to  effect the object for which the young  spearman hud taken them. Thus became  'across the heath, light of foot, but sober  of countenance, until he reached-the rock-  skirted cam]).; Women looked up at his  yodel from the fires they tended, and did  not immediately turn to their work, for  envy of his fishing. _ Other women were  picking over the maimed carcasses which  lay in several places, '.separating with a  stone the pieces of flesh which still hung  to the skins. All the men were sullen,  scarcely stirring, some all but asleep, for  it was the morrow of_a great feast, and  excessive joy of supping hud spoiled the  '.expectation' of breakfast. Tlie moment  was unfortunate; but tlie young spearman  advanced, holding his tray before him, lo  the place where the headman leaned  against a rock, with his fists one upon the  other against his breast, us he had a.manner when in wrath. As the spearman set  down the tray of clams by liis feet, he  made.the slight movement forward, just  necessary to gain the complete support'of  his feet, and with a shake and backward  jerk of his head he threw the hair from  his temples. He laughed with malice, and  said to the boy: "An offering to the  headman's wife?"  The   tribesmen   drew  near cautiously.  For all knew the suit of the spearman;  that lie  offered  clams and  good-will  of  service   to  the  headman   that he   might  take to wife the white girl, who was called  so because she was white as the sea sand.  Some knew beside that the headman was  angry against the spearman,' because he  was brave and  lithe, und the headman's  wife was fierce and wayward.    The boy  did not bow his head at the chief's word,  but answered:  "An offering to the headman."  With  that,   too,  he  took his  necklace  from his  neck.    It  was  of bear's claws,  the   pride of   his  huntsman's' craft,   all  ���pierced and strung, as a headman might  not   disdain.    This   he   proffered   to   his  chief,   though  it  was a precious   thing,  with a frank, determined expression.    As  he did so, the headman asked him:  "Do you offer claws to a bear?"  At 'this the boy drew back, withdrawing the necklace, and feeling with his left-  hand, for the axe which hung in a simple  loop of his girdle;   which, save for his  necklace  and   the like,   with  far  fewer  claws below either knee, was all the clothing he wore; yes, he disdained so much as  a  shoulder-skin   against   the   ruin.   The  wo.nen  left their tires-and work, joining  the  men,  so  that  now  the  whole   tribe  looked   on  in   wondering  silence,   to  see  which  of the combatants, the   headman  so gross -and powerful, or  the spearman  so nimble and  swift,  would strike down  the other and  send him into the night.  The   battle   was a short one;   twice   or  thrice  did  the  lad start from under the  blow of his adversary.    Had he  but had  confidence to fling his axe, young arm and  true eye could not have failed: but knowing his own agility, he counted upon the  like in the headman, and feared to let his  only weapon leave his hand.   So that, his  first blow guarded, the Aveight of a rush  threw  him to the ground,  where he lay  forever, the point of his chief's axe deep  buried in his skull.  The victor, with that gesture of his,  threw back his dam]) red hair from his  face and looked savagely round the circle  of the tribe, lie picked up the boy's axe  and placed it upon his breast. The necklace, once offered him, belonged no more  to the dead. He took it. placed it upon  the neck of the while girl, and bade her  help his wife prepare breakfast. While  two of tho women, taking the boy's corpse  each by a wrist, dragged it away into the  bushes ut the edge of the wood.  * * * *  Haiti hail fallen during the day und the  evening was chill. Winding across the  heath to the sou came a long file of the  women of the camp to take fish among  the rocks exposed by the unusually low  tide and score it]) the sand for silver eels.  One of them carried a brand with which,  when they returned, to ignite a great  torch to cover them from prowling beasts  in the dark. The rest, with their primitive fishing implements, wore each a skin,  covering herself with it as best she was  able. All save the white girl, who wore  none, by the malice, it seemed, of the  headman's wife, whose"associate she had  been all day, and that but little to her  comfort.  The sea-sand lay tawny, like a, lion's  fell, its hollows tufted with coarse, hairy  growths. The shallow pools upon it  caught and absorbed what little day was  left. From seaward came the tumble of  the distant breakers; from landward, the  cries of tho braves as they danced ut evening.  The sullen wives went straight down to  the water, scarcely picking their way, for  thev liked not their labor.   At a certain  point the majority of them turned aside  where a little gulf cut in through the  sand among a heap of rocks. A. few continued to the sea's edge; among them the  head wife and the whitegirl. These, stopping <'i man's length from the water,  scratched hither and thither iu the white  sand with pointed slakes, till the white  eels darted forth and were taken and  pushed quickly into the skin bag each  wife curried at her waist.  The headwife and the girl worked side  by side in silence. Not long, and they  disputed an eel; the girl gave way. After  this they worked even closer together, almost touching 'each'other at times. A  big, bright eel darted out; each struck at  it with the flat of her ..hand; they came  into collision, a nd the eel escaped into the  water. Furious, the headwife struck the  girl with her stake; and she, the white  thing, recoiling in pain, dropped her bug.  so that half her eels'escaped. A second  blow, 'and she fell with a cry. Then the  headwife beat her upon the head, again  and again and again, though she cried no  more. The women from the rocks ran  near and looked on in silent interest. For  the headwife, taking her victim by one of  her heels, waded knee-dee]) into the water  and walked to and fro a long distance,  dragging her oscillating burden. Then  she came out- and looked for.a time tit the  still, white, and bruised body; till she left  it, and having found whatshe sought, she  ���returned, .and.with a, great conch slowly  scored' the whiteness of the white girl  from throat to thighs.  Then the brand was set to a bush  twisted on a long stake, and, with long,  even strides, till the women went back in  silence through the dusk.  The  Uncharitable in Small Things,  "nice girl" is always condemned  sharing  this   indiscriminate  epithet  with the weather,' with novels, with everything under  the sun.    Yet her  niceness  has its peculiar, distinctiveness, consisting  chiefly in a certain radiant and cheerful  mildness, assertion of faith in others and  a devotion to duty.    She ���fetches and carries for the world at large.    She is apt to  be hard on girls who are not  nice; good  looks are, to  her, a little suspicious.    If  you do not agree with her .'moral  views,  she seeks  the  reason  in   your  habits; if  you are not at church, she does not conclude that you have attended the cathedral;   if   you   do  not find  your.'pleasures  where she.finds hers, she puts it down to  dissipated tastes.    For in small things she  is, uncharitable.     But bring  yourself to  great down-ftilling, and she'will give her  tears, her heart, her faith to you, and will  find.more .excuses for you than you would  have  the  face' to ..plead  for yourself at  heaven's gate.    With some things sue has  no patience; among them are idle young  men, women who talk slang, an impartial  attitude  toward'religious sects, extravagance in living, toleration for the wicked,  excessive tight-lacing, flirting, vanity. Of  others, she is very suspicious; for example, of cleverness, of the fine arts, of politicians, of young middle-aged women, of  'comic opera, of society novels.    She does  not recogni/.e the right  to  pleasure: she  wonclershow anybody can be happy while  the world is what it is; anil she is herself  one of the; happiest'people in it.    She always  knows   what she  thinks���and it is  always what she ought to think.    She is  not tall: peace of mind sends her plumpness.    She  has   plenty   of  color   in   her  cheeks,   brown,   dog-like   eyes,  a   broad,  embracing,'benevolent  mouth.   She has  plenty  to say, but wastes no thought on  the way she says it.    It  is dangerous to  say to her what you do not mean, and not  always  advisable   to say  what   you   do  mean.    She approaches a joke with caution, and considers irony unkind.   She delights  to hel]>, and will provide you with  anything���from a pin-cushion to a moral  code���for the asking.   And she is restful  to talk to.    Further, if you have an inefficient  conscience,  you   cannot do  better  than to install her in its place.  For if you  do only what you would like to tell her,  a saint  in  trousers   will  dwell   in   your  lodgings.    But the price of this is to drop  all   your   elegant   flippancy,  to smother  your airy freedom of talk and life, to shut  the eye on the humors of the good and the  absurdities of the earnest.

THE   DEATH  RUN.  Along in the early SO's, when the Denver it Rio Grande was a narrow gaufje  road and the main lino lay across the  great divide at JMarsh Pass, there was a  wreck in the Black Canon, and of that  wreck 1 write.  So rough and impenetrable was Hi i.s  canon that tlie men sent out to blaze the  trails were unable to get through. Engineers with their instruments were let  down from the top ol' the canon wall,  hundreds of feet by long ropes, and to this  day, if you look up when the train goes  round Dead Man's Curve you will see a  frayed-out rope whipping the gray rocks,  ilOd feet above the river and the rail.  By the breaking of this rope a human  lite was lost, the lirst of many lives that  have been lost in this wild canon. In the  rush and hurry to complete the road, little  attention was given to sloping the cuts  or making it safe for the men who ride  ahead. , So, when spring came and the  snow began to melt on the mountains and  moisten the earth, great pieces of scenery  would lose their hold upon the steep hill  anil sweep down the side of the canon,  carrying rails, roadbed, in fact everything  but the right-of- way across the river  w'liere the landslide was often lauded high  and dry on the opposite shore.  So of ten was the scenery shifted during  the first twelve months that the night  run through the Black Canon, so wildly  beautiful by day, so grand and awful by  night, came to be called the Death Llun.  It was engineer Peasley's run out that  night, but lie had just returned from the  stony little grave-yard that had been  staked out on the banks of the Gunnison,  where they had hurried his baby. He  was a delicate-looking man and when he  came into the round-house that afternoon  to register off he wore his soft hat fur  down over his inflamed eyes, as if he  would hide from the world any tra.ee of  that sacred grief. Kipp, his fireman, saw  him and was sorry, for he knew how  dearly the driver had loved the little one  now iost to him. Sliding from the pi lot,  where he had been scouring the number  plate, Kipp went to the book and registered off also.  And so, it .happened, that when No. 7  left Gunnison at !):I:"5 Jack Welsh held tlie  seat and fireman McConnell handled the  scoop. The sharp exhausts from the  straight stack sent up it solid stream of  fire as they hurried out through the  yards, and the bright red sparks rattled  like :hail among the crippled cars on the  "rep'" track.  The brisk bark of the bounding engine  dwindled down to a faint flutter and was  drowned in the roar of wheels as the Iontj  train hurried away down the valley and  was swallowed up in a black canyon. The  run was regarded as a difficult one, bub  tlie extra crew were equal to it, and Jit  every station up to II:tfO the operator  wired the dispatcher, the dispatcher the  trainmaster, and he the superintendent},  "No. 7 on time."  Although he had no regular run, 3ft;-  Connell was really an old fireman. Mo  had but recently'returned to the road  after a year's absence. At the earnest solicitations of his good mother he had left  the rail to return to his father's farm near  Saliua, Kansas, lie was a good and dutiful son, and he loved his mother its only  such a son can love; but he could nob help  the longing within him to return to the  road. That summer the Missouri Pacific  opened a new line right through his father's farm, and every day he heard the  snort of the iron horse, saw the trains go  up and down the track, saw the engine-  men throwing kisses to the girls on  the farm, and he wanted to return  to the  Rockies.    More;  than  once every  day he looked to the west, where he  knew the trains were going up and  down; where the snow lay in great drifts  on one side of the track aud the flowers  bloomed on the other. Who can say how  Die heart of the engine-man long's for the  engine ?  When the harvest had been cut and the  golden grain had been garnered, the restless youth bade his parents adieu and set  his face towards the sunset. He had been  a- faithful fireman, and found no trouble  in re-establishing himself in the service of  the ''Scenic Line."  The death run was a. long one; l&l miles  over mountains and through canons.  They had crossed Cero summit, and were  now roaring along the canon by the banks  of the beau ti ftil river.  The night grew warmer as they drifted  down toward the valley of the Bio Grande.  The engineer sat silently in his place, trying the water, whistling for stations, and  watching the way.    The fireman, having  little to do now, lounged in the open window and looked out on the rippling river  where the moonlight lay.    It was almost  midnight when the operator tit Roubideau  was awakened by  the wild   wail   of the  west-bound express.    As the  long  train  rattled over the bridge   beyond the  little  station, the operator reached for the key  and made the wire say:   "No. 7 on time."  Beyond the bridge there was a bit of a  tangent, a few hundred yards, and when  they turned into it, the fireman got down  from his comfortable seat to fix  the  fire.  The driver  released  the brakes  at the  bridge, and the train was now increasing  her speed at every  turn of the  wheels.  Looking ahead, the engineer saw the open  mouth of Robiileau tunnel, which,   being  on the shadow side of the hill, looked like  a great hole iu the night.    Nearer the engine he saw a   number  of  dark objects  scattered  about.    In  another   second  he  discerned what these were, and  realized  an awful danger.    As he reversed the engine and applied   the air,  he shouted  to  the   fireman   to   .jump.     He might have  .jumped himself, for  he saw  the  danger  lirst, but no such thought came   to  him.  In another second the pilot  was plowing  through a herd of cattle that were sleeping on  the track.    If they  had  all been  standing,    he   would   have   opened   the  throttle and  sent  them  Hying   into the  river with little risk to his train; but they  wore lying down, and as they rolled under  the wheels they lifted   the great  engine  from the  rails and threw her down  the  dump at the  very edge of the river.   So  well had the faithful engineer performed  his work that the train was stopped without wrecking a car.    Many of the passengers were  not awakened.   The  trainmen  came   forward   and   found  tlie engineer.  He was able to speak to them; ho  knew  what hail happened,  and knew  that he  had  but  a   few  minutes to  live.    These  brave, rough men of the rail  never hide  anything from each other, and   when he  asked for his fireman; they told  him  the  fireman was dead.  As he lay there in the moonlight, with  his head resting on the conductor's lap,  while the braketnan brought a cup'from  the mail car and gave him a drink of  water, he told them where he wanted to  be buried���back East somewhere; spoke  of his insurance policy; left a loving message for his wife; and then, as if he had  nothing more to say, or do, closed his  eyes, folded his arms over his brave heart,  and without a murmur, apparently without pain���died.  It was many hours before they found  the fireman. When the crash came he  was standing in front of the furnace door.  The tank doubled forward and forced him  up against bhe boiler-head, where, if he  had not been killed instantly, he must  Iiave been slowly roasted. He lay in the  wreck so long that when they got him out  there was a deep and ugly groove across  his face where he had lain against the  narrow edge of the throttle lever. Save  tlie deep furrow there were no marks  upon his face. But that one mark remained even after the body was embalmed.  The writer was at the time employed  by the same company in a similar capacity, and was sent out to the wreck to  take charge of the body of the fireman, to  bring it to Denver and then take it back  to the farm at Saliua. The traveling engineer went out with a special engine and  the superintendent's special car, and I  went with him.  It is not a pleasant task to deliver the  dead to bereaved relatives; but it is the  least that can be done, and someone must  do it. The engine left the track precisely  at midnight on Friday night, and it was  nob until the afternoon of the following  Tuesday that I reached Saliua.  Therehad been six children in this happy  family, three boys and three girls. The  eldest son was a locomotive engineer, but  he had left the road for good and was now  with his family at the Kansas farm. I  had wired him when I left Denver, so  when I walked up to the express car,  where the long pine box was being transferred to tt truck, the father and brother  came forward and spoke to inc. Awaiting  the arrival of the hearse, the truck that  bore the body was wheeled into the baggage-room.  "Mow does he look?" asked the engineer  when we had taken seats in the farm carriage.    "Can mother see him?"  "He looks very well," said I, and then,  remembering that ugly furrow in his face,  "but would it uot be better for all of you  to remember him just as he left home?"  When we reached bhe McConnell place  and went into the house where the family  were all assembled in the large plain  parlor, there was no need for an introduction. ' They all knew me. and knew why I  had come, and when they crowded about  me, all weeping so bitterly, 1 felt that I  could not hold out much longer myself. 1  did better than I had expected, however,  until'I attempted to talk, when the tears  came up in my throat and choked me. So,  with a little brother on one knee, a little  sister on the other, while the two young  women were sobbing at the window and  the brave young engineer was trying between his tears to calm his mother, I gave  way and wept with the rest.  When we hail all gained the little relief  that always conies with a shower of tears,  the mother began to talk to me and ask  questions. To begin, she asked me if I  could tell he exactly when her boy was  killed.  "Last Friday night," I said.  "What time?" she asked, glancing at  her two daughters, who had turned from  the window, and were trying to dry their  eyes.  "Almost exactly at midnight," was my  reply.  "Ah!" she said, again bursting into  tears, "I knew it!    I knew it!"  "He was killed instantly," said I; "he  never knew what happened."  I said this with the hope of their deriving a shade of comfort from the fact that  the boy was not roasted alive, tis so many  engine-men are.  "Not quite instantly," said the mother.  "He called me twice: 'Mother! Mother!"  and I saw him standing before me with a  great deep furrow across his face".  When she placed the edge of her hand  against her face to show me where the  scar was, and, when I saw her mark the  very angle of the ugly groove, 1 felt a  strangle tingling sensation at the roots of  my hair.  "Mas anyone written you the particulars of the wreck?" J said.  "No," she answered, "we have had but  two telegrams; one from the superintendent, tellingof his death, and the one from  you when you left Denver."  What she said so affected me that I excused myself and walked out to the barn,  where I could think. I was not long in  arriving at the conclusion that when  No. 7 left the track, in that infinitesimal  fragment of time, the boy saw that he  was in the shadow of death, and his first  and only thought was of his mother. Mis  whole soul went out to her so swiftly and  so surely that she not only heard him call  her, bub saw him, just as he was.  At the barn I found bhe dead boy's  father, who had insisted upon his sou's  going in with me upon our.arrival at the  house while he 'put up the team. 1  thought his face the saddest I had ever  seen, as he moved about in his tearless  and silent sorrow.  "How did it happen?" asked the farmer,  when he had finished  his chores, and we  were walking back  toward the house together.  " Hit a bunch of cattle," said I.  "In the night?"  answer,  "just about  CAN   THIS   BE   TRUE?  the Swiss  of Gessler  ^'es,"   was   the  midnight."  "What night?"  "Last Friday."  "Stop," said the farmer, touching my  arm; "I want to tell you something that  happened here last Friday night���and I  remember that the clock was striking 12."  Then he told me how his wife had  screamed and wakened him, and how she  had wept bitterly, and insisted that  Johnny had been killed. Me had been  struck by somebody, or something, she  insisted, and she could see a great, red,  ugly scar on his face.  I don't know why I did not; but 1 remember distinctly that I did not tell them  ���not even the engineer who was accustomed to seeing such things���that the scar  was thereon Jack's face, just as his mother  had seen it that. Friday night. We did  not open the coffin at the church, nor at  the grave.  I remained with the family at the farmhouse that night, and with them, on the  following day. went to the little church  in town, where the good priest talked a  great deal longer than was necessary, I  thought. Fortunately for his soul, John  McConnell had so lived that when the  final "caller" came, he was ready, even for  the Death Run; and he is gone���gone to  join that silent army of enginemen which  i.s moving ever toward the unknown.  In a pleasant place on a gentle slope that  tipped to the west, his grave was made;  and while we were weeping there, another  grave, iu another place, was being filled,  hiding from the eyes of the world the  body of the bravo engineer.  And, now. when the rumble and roar of  the midnight train shakes the hills; when  the wild wail of the steam whistle disturbs the stillness of the old canyon, there  tired hands can rest; while the busy  waters of the ever rippling river sing an  endless requiem to the noble dead.  William Tell did not fount  Confederation, and the story  has no historic basis.  There is no historic authority for the  statement that little George Washington  cut down the cherry tree.  The "Man in the Iron Mask" did not  wear a mask of iron. It was black velvet,  secured by steel springs.  Seneca was not a half Christian philosopher, bub a grasping money-lender and  usurer, who died worth over*JC3I,000,000.  Ca-sar did not say "Ft- tu Brute." Eyewitnesses to the assassination deposed that  "he died fighting, but silent as a wolf."  Wellington, at Waterloo, did not say,  "Up guards, and at 'em." The words were  put into his mouth by an imaginative  writer.  Richard III. was nob a hunchback, but  a soldier of line form, some pretentious to  good looks, and great personal strength  and courage.  Pocahontas did not save the life of John  Smith. It has been ascertained that this  worthy man was one of the most able-  bodied prevaricators in his century.  General Crambronne did not say, "The  guard dies, bub not surrenders." The  words were the invention of a Paris journalist, anil attributed to him.  C;esar did not cross the Rubicon: it lay  on the opposite side of the peninsula from  the point where he left his own posessions  and entered Italy.  The story of King Arthur and his round  table is a myth, although what purports  to be the round table is still to be seen in  a south of England town.  Fair Rosamund was not poisoned b3r  queen Eleanor, but, after a long residence  as a nun in the convent of Gadstow, died  greatly esteemed by her associates.  Diogenes never lived in a tub. The  story that he did so has no better origin  than a comment by a biographer that,  "a man so crabbed ought to have lived iu  a tub like a dog."  There was probably no such man as  Romulus. The first historian who mentions him lived at a distance of time so  great as to throw extreme discredit on  the story as told by him.  Alexander the Great did not weep for  other worlds to conquer. There is reason  to suspect that his army met with a  serious reverse in India, a. fact that induced him to retrace his steps.  The immense burning glasses c.with  which Archimedes burned the ships of the  besiegers of Syracuse at ten miles distant were never manufactured, and it is  now known that they could not httve existed.  Pitt did nob use the expression, "The  atrocious crime of being a young man."  The words were used by Dr. Johnson, who  was not present, but wrote a report of the  speech from an abstract given him by a  hearer.  Vinegar will not split .rocks; so Hannibal could not thus have made his way  through the Alps. Nor will it dissolve  pearls; so that the story of Cleopatra  drinking pearls melted in vinegar must  have been a fiction.  Worshippers' are not crushed by hundreds under the wheels of the car of Juggernaut. The car has not been taken out  of the temple for many years, and such  deaths as formerly occurred were exceptional or accidental.  Columbus did not make an egg stand on  end to confute his opponents. The feat  was performed by Bruneileschi, the architect, to silence critics who asked him how  he was going to support the dome of the  Cathedral of Florence.  The Hanging Gardens of Babylon did  not hang, nor were they gardens. They  were terraces supported by arches and  overgrown with trees. They, wore erected  for the amusement of a Babylonian queen  who had come from a mountainous  country.  The seige of Troy was mostly a myth.  According to Homer's own figures, if there  ever was such tt man as Homer. Helen  must have been at least sixty years of age  when she first met Paris, and es'en the  heroic, period of the world, women of that  age were a trifle passe.  The pass of Thormopyhe was defended,  not by -'Ml, but by at least 7000 Greeks, or,  according to some writers, 12,000. The  :HX) wero the Spartan contingent, who  showed no more bravery on that occasion  than their companions in arms from other  Greek states.  Nero was no monster.  Agrippina, was not put to  order, nor did he play upon  sing "The Burning of Troy  war on fire. Our knowledge of him is  gained from Tacitus, who hated him, and  from .Potronitis Arbiter, who was put to  death for conspiring against him.  Hannibal did not send three bushels  gold rings, plucked from the hands  Roman knights killed on the field  Cauna; back to Carthage as evidence  his victory. The messenger who carried  the news back bo the (Jarthageuian  senate, on concluding his report, "opened  His   mother,  death by his  his harp, and  ," while Rome  ol  of  of  of  his robe and threw out a number of gold  rings gathered on the field."  Constantino the Great was not a saint.  He murdered his wife, one or two of his  sons, and a considerable number of other  relatives. Ho was a Christian only in  name, and seems to have known little or  nothing of the religion he professed.  Sappho, the poetess was not a wanton  beauty, nor did she throw herself from  the Lcncadiaii cliff, to be cured of an unworthy love. The latest investigations  prove her a respectable married woman  witha lage family, whom she raised with  as much care as a Greek matron usually  gave her children.  What Makes Beauty.  Beauty is a result of race, of circumstances, such as personal freedom and  mode of life, and of continuous diet, not  of intelligence, and still less of the acquisition of knowledge, which latter can  only benefit the individual whose features  are fixed past serious change before study  i.s even begun.  A man or woman inherits his or her  face and mental habitude, though it; may  greatly affect its meaning, can no more  alter its shape than assiduous training  can turn a smooth fox-terrior into a wiry  kind from Airedale.  The most beautiful black race in Africa,  a tribe of Nyassaland, on whose looks even  missionaries grow eloquent, are really as  ignorant as fishes, and though they have  discovered the use of fire, have never  risen to the conception of clothes of any  kind.  The keenest race iu Asia, as all who  know them assert, and the strongest in  character, the Chinese, are decidedly the  ugliest of soini-civili/.ed mankind; while  the Hindoo, if sufficiently fed, is. even  when as ignorant as an animal, almost invariably handsome.  The Circassians, who know nothing, and  are rather stupid than exceptionally intelligent, are physically a faultless race,  far more so than the Germans, who though  the best trained people in the world, display a marked commonness of feature, as  if the great sculptor. Nature, had used  good clay, but taken no trouble about the  modeling. Some of the very ablestaniong  them belong to the Mat-nosed, puffy-  cheeked, loose-lipped variety.  The keenest race in the world, and probably the most susceptible of culture���the  Jew���presents no type of beauty, being  usually at once hook-nosed and flabby-  cheeked, though in physique, as in  thought, that race occasionally throws  I out transcendent examples.  The trained Arabs ol' Egypt, who seem  to possess poor brains, and ol course have  no education, are often extraordinarily  handsome: while in ISOO the grandest  head in Asia, a head which every artist  copied as his idea of Jove, belonged to an  Arab horse dealer, who, outside his trade,  knew nothing.  ��� No modern men of culture would pretend, in mere peri'ectuess of form, to rival  the old Greek athletes, who, intellectually,  were probably animals; or the Borserkars,  who were, for the'most part, only hard-  drinking soldiers.  A Genuine Piece of Good Luck.  "What is the luckiest thing that ever  happened to you?" was asked of a New  York millionaire.  "Do you mean sheer, unadulterated  luck���something that just happens without any seeking on your part?" replied  the millionaire.  "Well, yes. let it goal, that."  "I am generally counted a very lucky  man by the thousand and one people who  know more about me than I do myself.  But, on my honor, what I call a  genuine  piece of good luck happened to me only  once in my life. It didn't amount to  much, though it meant much to meat the  time. It was when I was MHiiig my first  job -that of an errand boy at .$���'{ a week  and I tell you I have never since felt so  rich as when I carried home my lirst throe  dollars. I had been given a check to cash  and a bill to pay. After paying the bill  I had $.'37 of my employers' money left. I  had just crossed Broadway, when happening to look back, I saw two men lighting  in tho street. I retraced my stops to see  what it was all about. To my aiiin/.enieiit  and surprise I discovered that tins two  men were lighting about the iji.'VT and the  receipted bill, which in some mysterious  fashion had dropped out of my pocket,.  A policeman happening along at that  moment ! was able to prove that I had a  bettor right to the property in dispute  than either of the combatants, and recovered it forthwith. They had each  grabbed for it at the same time, and each  was bound to get till or none luckily for  me. I have often speculated on what  might have happened if they hadn't quarrelled. I should never have recovered the  money, and. in consequence, I should certainly have lost, my situation. Thai,  might have changed tho whole current of  my career, and instead ol' being a rich  man, I might, today have been a poor  devil, or I might have   boon  twice as rich  as I am. Who knows? Anyway. J regard  it as the only piece of downright siinoii  pure, unmistakeably good luck that ever  befel me. 'But any Tom, Dick or Harry  that you chance to meet will be able to  tell you lots of luckier things than have  happened to me. Some of them things  that I had worked at for years."

If Nelson  is  to be healthy its residents  should read the following rules and regu-  Jabions, which the government agent has  authority to enforce:  (1.) No person shall suffer the accumulation upon his premises, or deposit, or per-  jnittho deposit, upon any land belonging  to him or under 'his control of anything so  as to endanger the public health, or shall  deposit or suffer or permit to.be .deposited  in, upon, on or into, any street, square,  lane, by-way, wharf, dock, slip, lake,  pond, bank, harbor, river, stream, or  water, any manure or other refuse, or  vegetable or animal matter, or filth of  any kind.  (2.) It shall be the duty of the government agent to keep a vigilant supervision  over all streets, lanes, by-ways, lots, or  premises, upon which any such accumulation as aforesaid niciy be found, and at  once to notify the parties who'own or  occupy such lots or premises, or who  either personally or through their employees have deposited such manure, refuse, matter, dirt, or filth, in any street,  lane, or by-way. or who permit or suffer  the accumulation thereof, to cleanse the  same and to remove what is found thereon; and such parties shall forthwith remove the same, and if the same be not  removed witin twenty-four hours after  such notification, the agent may cause the  parties so offending to be prosecuted, and  lie may also cause the same to be removed  tit the expense of the persou or persons so  offending.' lie may. personally or by  deputy, also inspect at intervals all premises occupied by persons residing within  his "jurisdiction.  quarter at a fourth of July celebration.  If he has a home it is too luxurious for  homely comfort. If he has daughters,  they occupy more time spending his  money than in .planning his pleasure. If  he has sons, they are petted .and spoiled  and looked up to as the probable channel  through which his fortune may be dissipated'.when he is gone. A chapel in a  cemetery is hardly .more gloomy than the  rich man's club. As an example, the Metropolitan Club of New* York, having a  membership of 0f>0 'millionaires, is as  dreary, as.full of solitude and echoes as a  mountain resort in .January. The magnificent dining-room, with a capacity of  more than 1000, seldom contains more  than eight persons at a time; the elaborate smoking-rroms are deserted, and no  ladies grace the annex. With all its silken  furnishings, costly draperies, and famous  paintings, this rich man's club offers less  of good -fellowship, less of jolly pleasure,  than a Bohemian club of newspaper men  which meets in the side room of some obscure restaurant. Millions can do much.  They can buy steam yachts, purchase  seats in the United States senate and surround their possessor with the superficial  comforts of civilization. But happiness,  being a matter of temperament rather  ��� than of surroundings, will not sell itself  for gold. It .sometimes permits itself to  be cultivated, but never to be purchased.  God pity the American millionaire and  bring hi'tn to a realizing sense of his duty  and his errors.'"  The above is from the Spokane Review;  but notwithstanding it is gospel truth, we  would like to be a "miserable millionaire"  for a month or so.  NOTICE.  Colville, Washington, and Nelson, B. C.

SEVENTY-SIX   MORE   VOTERS.  High "Water at Kaslo.  'A correspondent writes:    "The flood i.s  playing havoc with everything.    All east  of Third street is a flood.    The water has  surrounded the brewery and is  seven  or  eight feet deep  there.    The government  office is also surrounded.    Every house on  the lower end of Avenue A is abandoned,  and some of-them have nine to ten feet of  Avater   standing   on   their   parlor   floors.  The water in Kaslo river  is doing great  damage and the houses alongits banks are  in  danger.    The  bridge   at Third  street  may go out.    The steamer Nelson  lauds  ���within   forty   feet   of  Wilson's store  on  Front street.    The Galena Trading Company's store has a foot or  more of water  on its lloor, and tlie cellar under Wilson's  store is   flooded.   George Hughes's warehouse i.s upset, and the wtiter is nearly to  the top of .the boiler in  Buchanan's sawmill.   The water is now  twenty-six feet  above  low-water mark,   and  is rising at  the rate of twenty inches every twenty-  four hours."  A. Remark Causes a Coolness.  A cooliless has sprung up between   two  well-known    London   clubs.     Oik-  of the  clubs, a military one, became the guest of  its neighbor during the process of cleaning. ()n discovering in their new quarters  ti bin of champagne of ISS0. in line condition, tin; visitors made a dead set upon  it. This might have been overlooked had  not the situation become hopelessly  strained by a remark made by one of the  Guards': "I did not," he said, as lie  drained the last bottle of the treasured  bin, ''think the middle classes drank such  good wine." . _    His Stewardship too Expensive.  The gross debt of the province i.s $.5,187.-  -].-)(>. an increase of over $_.000,(X)0 in the  seven years that Theodore Davie has had  an active part in the government. At  the same ratio of increase, the province  ���will be bankrupt if Theodore is permitted  to run the government for another seven  years. Theodore's stewardship is too expensive.   Too Much Red Tape.  There seems to be some trouble in obtaining a bell for the fire company with  the money raised at the New England  dinner last winter. The money should be  turned over to the treasurer of the fire  company, who will see to if that it is expended for the purpose for which it was  raised.  The Miserable Millionaire.

There is an inherent longing deep in tlie  heart oi' eaeli woman plodding along this  earth of ours to be attractive. ;  She thrives on admiration and grows  plump at the rate ot* live pounds a week  if a little love should be thrown in her  way.  But tlie great question of how to gain  this affection, this love and admiration  which each man has it in his power to  give is sometimes of a rather pir/zling  nature to girls, especially those who have  no personal charms to attract.  In conversation the other day some  charming girls were complaining of their  la el; of talent and plain features.  It was suggested to them to make a  study of the art of being pleasant.  '���('iris, you don't know what an effect  continued pleasantness has upon a man."  A woman who makes the man whom  she loves believe she knows not the meaning of worry, and who always has for him  a pleasant smile and ti word of welcome,  will find that Lender thoughts of her are  creeping down further into his heart than  those of beauty whom she envies.  The only way to be pleasant is to make  a study of the art; convert- it into a  science and study it as such.  A pleasant woman in the home is like a  gleam of heaven's brightest sunshine.  Her very presence soothes, comforts  itiifl cheers the heart of man.  Cor. Baker and  Josephine  Streets,  Nelson, B. C.
