 'aMx.  East an& Til est Kootenay  Have   Better Showings  for Mines than  any  other Sections on the Continent  of America.  Capital anb Brains  Can   Both   be   Employed   to   Advantage   in  the  Mining Camps of East and  West   Kootenay.  FIRST   YKAR.-NTO.  KELSON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA,  THURSDAY,  JUitfl.  2'.),   LSI  PRICE .TEN  CENTS.  A   PEOPLE   "WITH   A   GRIEVANCE.  They Claim That Nelson  Has Too Ei_" a Pull  on the Appropriations.  The RevelstokeStsir says 'Mt scorns impossible I'or Tin-: Tbibiwk to he fairsind  just in connection willi t.lic division of the  .'impropriations   for  West  lvootenay  district," and thou goes on to say that of the  $7a.()0() appropriated  for the district, Nelson gets it all except .$ 12,i30().    The Star is  I'oolish, and little attention should be paid  its utterances.    In the lirst place, the appropriations   ['or the district  were:   Salaries ol" officials, $15.100 ; education, $38(50:  new  government buildings, $ 12,000; hospitals and  charities, $2,<X)(); fire departments. .-WOO:  and for roads, streets, trails,  and brides. $-11.000.    All  the appropriations, except   the one  I'or  roads, streets,  trails, and  bridges, are specific;  that for  roads,   streets,   trails,   and   bridges   is a  lump ono. except that .fisiOOU is specified as  I'or the Kaslo wagon   road and $1000 for a.  wharf at New   Denver.    Deducting these  two amounts from the total, and we have  Sji.iO.OOO   left:  of  this amount $1 _.���>()(), or  over one-third, has" boon apportioned for  work   in   the   Revelstoke end  of the district.    'Wo believed that that; amount was  sis much sis the Revelstoke end wn-sen titled  to, and ssiicl so.   Wo believe, further, however, that the development of the mineral  claims in   the   Revelstoke  end   of the district has not reached the stage that would  warrent the government in building roads  to theseverhl camps, more especially when  the amount available would not complete  any one of tla; many  roads asked   for by  the iiiinoownerswho have interests in that  end of the district.    We.belicve. still further, that it is for the best interests ol the  mining industry of the district that a good  road    bo    built    to    connect    the    mines  in   the   Slocan   district   with   navigable  water on  Kootonay and Slocan hakes, I'or  the simple reason'that the mines in that  district are so far developed that ore can  be shipped from  them.  a. c< ndition that  does not exist, in the; mines in the country  tributary to Kevelstoke.    The building of  a trunk  road  to the Slocan mines would  uot necessarily benefit Nelson more than  other towns in   the southern  end of tho  district: but even  if  it did,  the government would only be spending money received   from   the  townsite  (if   Nelson, a  source from which it has derived two dollars for every one that it has expended  I'or the benefit of the people of Nelson.  In  winding  up its display of  narrow-mindedness,  the Star  .says:    "Till':. Tuibun'i-:  may feel sore at the fact that the immense  ledges of the Lardeau are so far from Nelson and so near to  Revelstoke, and at the  additional fact that the face.of the prospector i.s turned northward, but that is no  excuse for its malicious attempt to injure  the prospectors and claim owners in the  Lardeau  for the sake of currying   favor  with  the  American   magnates of Kaslo.  Thk Tuibunic,  to   be consistent,  should  locate south of the boundary line."   The  Star  need   not  worry  itself   about  Till;;  Tii!��UNi_ and  tlie Americans.    If it were  not for the latter, the mining industry in  Kootenay would be at a standstill; and if  it was not for the former, the people of  Revelstoke would be without grievances,  a condition  that would  be the death of  many of them.  of (ax discrimination in favor of married  pai'ties or otherwise.  In earlier time marriage was compulsory.  The great world conquerors wanted material for'their armies, and so heavy penalties wero laid on neglect to marry.  One interesting question which tho census figures do not answer is this: "How  many of these .'3,000.000 bachelors are single  from choice rather than necessity'*'"  The factors affecting the ability to support a wife ha.vo been very much changed  under the new industrial and commercial  condition. So great has' become the competition for places among the higher pursuits and so largely have women come to  fill positions once exclusively occupied by  men that the bureaus of industrial statistics show a, larger and larger percentage  of men in these pursuits whose incomes,  from their point of view, will not permit  thorn to marry.  It is easy to scold the young men in this  matter���quite as easy to find fault with  the young women who are looking out for  husbands with plenty of ready money.  Hut there is nothing iu the published census regarding the average-earnings of certain classes of workers which at all warrants the conclusion- that the majority of  these 8.000.000 unmarried men remain  single through wilfulness rather than  what thev deem necessitv.  Mr. Kellie is Not to Blame.  A correspondent writes from New Denver: "The government appropriation for  this wagon road [meaning the road from  New Denver to Three Ivories | isonly $2000.  We have to thank .Mr. Kellie for the fact  that so little of the money .appropriated  for West Kootenay is being expended in  this section. The mineral district around  New Denser has prior and far superior  claims to that section in which .Mr. Kellie  happens to have a. townsite aud to whieh  so much of the appropriation has been diverted." Mr. Kellie has nothing whatever  to do with the expenditure of the appropriations in West Kootenay district, more  tJia.ii any other citizen. If he lias more influence with the government than our correspondent, for instance, and through that  influence gets a liberal share of the appropriations expended in the section in which  lie has interests, he is not deserving of  censure: but the government is, for expending money where such expenditure is  not justified by the development of tin-  country.  Two Minds With But a Single Thought.  ! TIIK   Ml I.l-  Reliable Railroad News.  The railroad hews of the week can he  summed up ��������� u fow lines. 'Good progress  is reported'as being made on the Nelson it  Fort Sheppard and the clearing of the  right-of-way has been let on the Canadian Psicilic from Revelstoke south.  What is being done on the' Kaslo  it Slocan is known only at Kaslo.  outsiders like Till-: Tuiurxio not being  allowed to see anything except 4he  depot, which stands as a monument of the  erergy of the railroad company. On the  Nakiisp 6c Slocan nothing is yet being  done, but a telegram to Tine Tuiiu'xk,  dated Vancouver. June 2ord. says that  "work will be let in ten days." All the  above news can be considered strictly reliable, but what follows is only given for  what it is worth. When at St.'l'aid, W.  J. Hennessey, one of the owners iu the  Noble Five group of mines in Slocan district, heard the rumor that flic Great  Northern bad acquired control of the Spokane it Northern, and that the latter road  would not stop at Nelson, but be built on  up the outlet to the lake.  m u.icn���conn wn.i,.

Freight rates to  New Denver and Nakusp  are cheaper and lower than  to Nelson and Kaslo. The  rate to Nelson and Ivaslo is  tlie same. Where could Nelson be in this eiuergeney?  Well, that is loo easy.

The Bottom Dropping Out.  Silver is down to 7.'! cents an ounce, a  drop of 10 cents in the last week. This  fall in price means nothing if not that the  great linancial houses of Furope have  combined to make silver a coiuiuoditv,  like copper or load or iron. Half the silver mines in the world will be forced to  close down, for notwithstanding thestate*  incuts of the gold bugs, the cost of producing an ounce of silver, the world over,  is over $1.20 an ounce, and at only a few  exceptionally rich mines <  duced at even the prevai  (rents ill) ounce. The mines in this section  are exceptionally rich, but that many of  them will be worked is a question. The  fates seem to be in league against us.

Tin-" Tmm.xioV statement was that the  Ivaslo office handled more "letters" than  all the other offices in A Vest lvootenay  combined, and the statement was correct.  The fact that Revelstoke handles all Canadian mail matter to and from lvootenay  Lake points is not disputed: but that is  mail inattorin transit, not "letters" sorted  and handed out at the Revelstoke office.  More (ban one-half of fill the people in  West Kootenay district, excluding the  men now tit work on the Nelson __��� Fort  Sheppard railway, were in and around  Ivaslo this spring, and although not (here  now. their "letters" continue coming to  tin; Kaslo ollice.  in   it be  prn-  iug   price,  TA  bachelors in the  is meant there  years old who  Three   Million   Bachelors.

This fact, of course, furnishes a. very  handy text for all sorts of comment and  suggestion. Now and then tlie scheme is  advocated of making neglect of msitri-  money a statu Lory offense., cither by  way  A Good Map of the Two Kootonays.  A proof of Frank Fletcher's map of  lO.M.st and West Koolenay has been received from "Montreal, where it will be  printed. It is on a scale of six miles to  the inch, and is large enough to show the  exact location of every lot of laud in the  two districts for which a crown grant has  been issued. It also shows the location  and course of the creeks and rivers, the  location of the lakesand towns, the routes  of the railways, and the character of the  different sections of the districts. As  soon as Mr. Fletcher can make ths necessary corrections, the proof will be returned to the printer. It is expected (he  map will be on sale within a .month, and  when it is it will be at a price so low that  e. e -y free miner iu the tho two Kootenays  will be aide to purchase one.  A Private Bank Closed.  Word was telephoned down from Kaslo  last night that J. M. Rurko A* Co.'s private  b.ink at that place had closed its doors. It  is not likely that depositors will lose anything, as'the bank was reported in a safe  condition at the time of the bank failures  at Spokane three weeks ago. What effect  the closing will have on the business interests of the lake country is problematical; more than likely it will cause several  business houses at both Ivaslo and Nelson  to sail'.pretty elnse to tlie wind.  Breathes there the man with sotd so dead,  Who never to himself hath said,  This is my own-'-my native land.  Whose heart has ne'er within him burned,  As home his footsteps he hath turned,  From wandering on a. foreign strand:  If such there lie, go mark him well:  For him no minstrel's strain shall swell.  Tlie' Golden  Nugget Expose.  The    following   hitter    regarding   the  ("���olden  Nugget expose that appeared in  Tiik Tmni'NK some time ago i.s from John  Keen, a gentleman well known at Ivaslo,  and who atone, time was chief engineer  of   the  Kaslo  A*   Slocan   railway.    Tiik  . Tiom'Nio had no other object in view than  exposing what it believed to be a swindle,  and  if its statements were untrue, it is  strange they have not been contradicted  ere this by men who have visited the fabulously  rich  mine,   for  no  mine of   like  richness has so long remained  tin visited  by some one entirely disinterested. Yet, as  Mr. Keen says ho is the only one who lias  put up any  money on the deal,  he certainly should  have a  hearing, and  Thk  Tkiiu'NK gladly accords it to him:  ,lune--nd. 189���.

Theartiele states ������ that a purl Ion of the stock has been  "'sold lo Spokane  pnrlies.  tlmt. ;i man formerly well-  " known in   Kaslo is in* the Kast selling stock, and thai.  '" the Ureal Northern railroad ofiicinlt* are being roped in."  Allow me tostato:  1st. That the company has not oll'ered, or sold ii single  share of ntock to any living man, nor has it advertised  any for sale.  _nd. Thai this company lias nol paid a single cent to  any of the locators, but thai all documents are in the  hunker's hands pending an examination. This was done  ou April 1:1th last.  'li'il. Kefore lhe money is handed over to the locators,  oca single share disposed of. the claim will bo opened  out. and if as represented, the purchase will be completed:  if otherwise, the documents will be returned to the locators, and the money returned to myself who put, It up.  ���Ilh.

The Kaslo road is now in good repair up  to a   point  within  a  mile and-a  half of  Watson, and the bulk of  the government  appropriation   is  yet  unexpended.     The  old-wagon road committee want the road  continued   west   from  Watson, along the  side of Payne mountain;  but  the public  want it built along Seaton creek to Three  Forks, thence on down to New Denver. IT  the road is built along the side of Payne  mountain, it would be of no use to anyone  except the owners of three or four mines,  who would be equally''well served if it  wore built along the creek. The committee argue that if builtalong the creek, the  grade from Three Forks to Watson would  make it difficult to haul ore over the road  for that distance. That argument is not a  good one. Hughes's teams had no difficulty in hauling ore on bhe sleigh road  over the same route last winter: and,  'again, the grade i.s no more 'difficult from  Three Forks to "Watson than from Watson east over a portion of the road already  built. As the 'money now being 'expended  is government money, the government  agent should see to it that tlie money is  expended on work that will benefit the  many, not the few. The road should be a  trunk one, and should be bui'lt from lake  to hike, irrespective of the wishes of this  man or that man. If so built, every mine  owner in Slocan district would benefited,  sis would thecommercisil interests of every  town in the district tlmt  is likely to be s>  town. ________.^   The Latest in Regard to the Silver King.  The people around Nelson sire beginning  to believe that no such si mine as the Silver King was ever discovered ou Toad  mountain, and that the Mulls are myths.  However, the following, which appeared  iu the Vancouver World of the 22nd, may  give thein renewed hope: "A London,  Fnglatid. mining broker, who is now iu  Victoria, says tluit lhe sale of the Silver  King mine wsis constructed on the following basis: The mine was Hustled for  $!..�����('X),(KM), of which siniotint the present  owners secured $I.(K)(),(KK)in pstid upstock.

The rsiilroad "tote" road is completed  ��� from Nelson to the crossing of Sstlinou  river near the mouth of Hall creek, and is  pronounced si good one-over whicli to haul  supplies for rsiilwsiy construction, and for  the men si I work mining aud prospecting  on Mall creek as well.

TuAll, Chekk, June 2(Jth, 1803.  Mr. Gillette's survey for our wagon road  shows it to be twelve rods short of seven  miles in length. Four miles of this is completed and the thirty men employed can  make nearly a; mile per week for' tlie remainder. We'a re in a hurry to complete  it, for there is'a -i-ton boiler and engine  and two air compressors to go up.  H. Y.

The Minnie, si new location,  shows si 4-foot vein of galena ore carrying  $60 to the ton. about equally divided between gold and silver.  Another new location, the Edith Morey,  shows a large body���width unknown���of  iron pyrites and galena, a small sample  from which assayed $A2 in gold.  A-1-foot vein o{'iron-copper sulphide ore  containing some galena and antimony  has been located on the mountain overlooking the town si mile and a half awsiy.  Assay returns have not been received sis  yet.  The assessment work on the California,  claim has shown an 8-foot vein of iron-  copper sulphide ore, which sisssvys .$20 per  ton in gold.

The public schools of British Colunibisi  are sitteiided alike by children whose psir-  ents sire professed Romsin Catholics and  Protestants in religion, and never a word  is heard of injustice to the otic; or the  other. Then why should there be so much  fuss over the public schools in Msinitobsi?  If Catholic; psirenls do not wish to send  their children to the public schools, then  let tlu-iii keep them, as well as lheir interminable religious "sufferings," sit home.  Csmsida is suffering much more; from religious inloleraiice than from other csiuses.  She; is ruled in tho interest of religion, and  no country so ruled, in either ancient or  modern times, luis been free smd prosperous.   Worth Over $200 to tho Ton.

A   FATAL   HONOR.  Irish Leaders All Meet With the Same Trasic  Pate.  A more lamentable instance of the irony  of late  than   the   menae-e of Jrish   home  rule by Irish members of pari in men I could  hardly be imagined.   The weakness of the  Irish character is   in its  determination to  win everything with a coup, to yield nothing in the way of compromise, to win ali  or lose everything.    In  historic  fiction oi,  a.  high   class this   becomes inspiring, but  woe and disappointment to the  Irish na  tiem.    It is at  work again, helping te> embarrass Gladstone and tending inevitably  te> the triumph of the forces that are fighting homo.rule.    During the past fortnight  there has boon  open rebellion  anel nitieh  flamboyant oratory on   the  part of the  Irish   members   of   the   house.    All   this  weakeneel the home rule cause  in parliament anel pulls down Gladstone's support  among tho .English.    The pity of it all is  that Irish  members  who are  doing the  damage are incapable of foreseeing the  rapids .-toward, -which   they   are   rowing  with so much bad spirit.  Tho honor of being leader in the Irish  cause lias been well conipui-ed to wearing  .that fatal- garment of Nessus, which was  the destruction of all who assumed it.  Such it proved-to the brilliant^ lord Edward Fitzgerald- who died in'prison.from-  'weninds- received for-Ireland. The tragic  fate of Robert 1-ininet, hanged at 23 as  .leader in an attempt at revolution, is ui-  miliar to'every school boy'through that  speech in his own defense, which will remain for all time a -masterpiece of impassioned eloquence. He is also ce-nunemor-  jited by Thomas Moore, his fellow student  at Trinity Ce>llege, Dublin."in one of the  most touching of the Irish melodies :  ' "0 breathe not his name!"  While Miss Curran. Emmet's betrothed,  who was sewn to follow her lover, i.s the  subject of that well-known ballad:  **.SIie is far from the l-inel where her young: hero sleeps."  Ninety years have passed since the judicial murder-of tins gifted "young man,  whose high character and pure'motives  have never been called h^ question, and  tears still flenv over his untimely fate.  Henry Grattan, early throwing himself  into the struggle for Iri-h oma-ncipation.  during .along life, laid upon the altar of  the people's cause, his splendid gifts of  learning, statesmanship anel eloquence.  Repaid with ingratitude while living, in  death has received apotheosis. Statues  have risen in his honor, while his memory  lives enshrined in history anel embalmed  in the gratit.uele of his native land.  Most brilliant of all Irish leaelers was  DanielO'Geainell. The head and front of  the Irish repeal bill, he was also chief  agent iu carrying through that great  measure of Catholic emancipation. As  a result of this triumph, he; sat for twelve  years in the parliament from which Catholics hael Iemg been debarred by the exclusion act. While the Irish people idol*-  i'/.eel him as their liberator, the English  government looked upon him as a traitor,  anel the usual fine;.--', indictments and imprisonments fell te> his lot. Dissensions  within his own party, as well as.contentions without it, had ruined his health  anel spirits, when iu 1 SI7 he (lied a brokenhearted man at Genoa, whither he had  genie; iu search of rest and peace.  Isaac Butt, a magnetic orator and a born  leader of men, became in some sort. (/Council's successor, and for many ye-ars led  the folorn hope of the home ' rulers. An  eminent lawyer, a university pmfessor  and a successful author, he renounced for  an unpopular cause the sure path tei a lord  eha.nccllorship and the; rank e>f pe-e-r of the  the realm, lie passed from this stage in  1871), hounded to death by his enemies.  Charles Stuart Parnell was his successor.  Entering parliament in 1871), he; sexm came  to tin; front as lender of the Irish cm use.  Iritish Columbia  Sir DONALD  A.  SMITH President,  Hem. CEO. A.

The  government began to treat the Irish question seriously, and this "strong, still man  iu a blatant'land,"soon rose to bo supreme  lie tutor of his party. How from his  .might he fell like Lucifer, how he himself  by his own moral weakness anel folly  ������'winged tlie shaft tluit (|tiivered in his  heart" ami soon caused hisdoath,are inat-  ;ers of recent hisLory.  Many Irish revolutionists tried for sedi-  iion, iinel sentenced tei death or transpor-  .atioii, have e;scaped bo.'h penalties, anel  caking flight te> freer lands, have attained  there high public positions. Sir liavin  Jufl'y, indicted at home for treason and  f'elouy. emigrated to A.nstralm, J|i��l became prime minister. Francis Thomas  Meagher''condemned to eleath at the age'  of 2~) for political offenses, had his sentence commuted to life long penal exile in  Van Diemau's.-Land. Escaping to the  Uniteel States, he won renown in oratory,  authtirship an'd ��� journalism, anel in the  ..-.ivil war rose to-the rank of brigjulier-  general. At the time of his death at 4-1,  by accidental drowning in the Missouri,  he was acting governor .of Montana.  The brilliant New York editorial record  of Thomas D'Arcey McGhee, an exiled  Irish leader, and his .subsequent ten years'  service in the Canadian parliament, a post  which he held until his death at the hands  .of. fa cowardly assassin, are facts well  known in American annals.  John TBoylo O'llojlloy's life and work,  form an interesting chapter of rpcent history. --Condemned as an Irish revolutionist'for .high treason-against the British  government," his sentence was'commuted  to 20 years' 'penal servitude in. Western  Australia, whether he was transported tit  the age of 2A. Mscapihg in an open "boat,  he was picked up by a- whaling vessel, and  taken to Philadelphia. Boston, usually  se> chary to unknown merit, took the  young Irish refugee te> her heart, and  opened for him a brilliant career as poet  and prosy writer, leeture;r, and editor.  She had no more loyal or honored citizen.  He lived to found the Papyrus club, to  win a worthy name in our literature anel  died widely mourned and missed, in I.S1K).  The British riders of Ireland in thus  driving out her ine>st gifted sons, have  done her irreparable injury. Te> retain  them.on their native soil, only fair treatment was necessary. Now that home rule  seems near at hand, Ireland has no groat  native leader "to grasp tho coveted prize.  .James Jeffrey Roche, an Irish pe*et and  editor, who litis found among us the career  denied him at home, in a beautiful poem  compares' Ireland to the fair maiden'Andromeda-, chained to the cruel rock, anel  destined te> be the prey of the sea-monstei'  hastening to devour her. How rescue  comes, in these final lines:  -Jlv Heiiulifiil, (hey left thee in thy peril anil thy pain;  The nitfht, llnit llitlh no morrow, was broeiiling o'er the  main;  Hut lo! a light is breaking nf hope fortbee again.

Are we really living in a degenerateage?  Is mealiness on the iiicroaseaniong us? Is  there still some radical deficiency in our  educational methods which aee-ounts for  thea-pparent failure of so many to retain  and develop theirold-i'ashionod traditions  of houorabie dealing e>n which enir fa.thiirs  prided themselves? These epiestions must  sometimes feae-e; themselves upon the  thoughtful as they observe, not merely  tlie great clie;;tts and defalcations anil e;m-  bn/./,lenients and betrayals of trust, whose  records occupy so much space; in the newspapers, hut more particularly the pestty  meannesses which abound in daily life.  They arc suggested to us at this moment  by a' column in an .American paper before  ns which shows that American ingenuity  lias utterly failed thus far to |>reventgreat  incongruities between the daily records of  the   numbers   admitU-d    to   tlie   World's  Fail1, and the receipts at the gates. It'is  found impossible te> balance the accounts  of ticket-sellers aud gate-keepers. It is  natural to suppose that special pains  would be -taken to engage lor these positions only men with reputations for honesty. Vet the facts are saiii to show that  many of them must be systematically  cheating their employers. This is but a  specimen fact from the: column, but it is  painfully suggestive. Were such things  confined te> the United States we in Canada might congratulate ourselves. Vet  there i.s but too much evidence of a similar lack of nice sense of honor in small  things amongst our own people.  The Paradise of the Wealthy.  We; are just beginning to recognize that  there are certain  porsons who are foredoomed by birth or nurture tolive iu l_ng-  lanel,  anel  who  ought   to   live  there,   no  matter where  they are born.   All great  wealth especially educates this class, for  it is obvious ata glance that I_nglanel, ne)t  America, is the paradise of wealth. Wealth  in thjs country buys eertajq  temporory  luxuries tinel convenioncios, but it buys no  lixoe] rank, whereas in Kngland it can buy  fixed rank/   livery lOnglishmaii may reasonably hope  that ho  can,   wioh   wealth  enough, "found a  family," as it is called;  that he may  in time be toe> rich to be ju-  diciously left out of the peerage.    That  position once gained, it is irrevocable;  no  poverty, no moral disgrace, can make the  slightest practical difference;  whereas, in  this country, the  utmost success gained  by wealth today may vanish tomorrow.  This being the case, it  is  perfectly reasonable that the migration of millionaires,  e)r multi-millionaires,should take place. Of  course the  experiment has ne>t yet   been  thoroughly  tried as le) men   born   in this  country, and in the utmost dreams of Dumas'  Monte Cristo   foreign  wealth never  yet bought an hlnglish peerage.   But that  qnly  adds to the  interest of tho experiment.    But even apart from this extreme  expectation, it is probable that there is no  nacipn  pn earth whole one can   have for  niejro  money so  much   as can be had  in  Kngland,   All   institutions -facilitate' jib;  the unequal distribution is already made,  and it is only needful to step in and bid  high   for one of tho larger shares.    Sumner, Hawthorne, Motley, Lowell, were all  in succession struck  with the fact that  the  delights of  life at   ICnglish country-  seats are  bought on  the condition.'that  these delights are witheld from the many:  the many were  unhoused, they found, in  order that tlie few might have more houses  than  they   needed.    There are   glens   in  Scotland now iulmbited by two shepherds'  aud two game-keepers apiece which'once  sent out their thousand fighting-men. The  essential point is that which was pointed  out'long since by  professor Bryce���that  wealth counts for.-more, not less, in l_ng-  hiud than in America.    Tlie'a-ristocracy'of  birth, long foolishly "hold to beanantie'lote  to that of wealth, in reality plays into its  hands.   Each ��� heeds the other."   "A  millionaire," says Bryce, "has a   better anel  easier social career open to him   in England than in America."   In this country,  he points out, bad persenial qualities may  keep the doors of the  best society, shut  against a man; but   in   England,   great  wealth can  practically buy rank;  or by  putting influential  persons under obligation, can induce thein "to stand sponsors  for the upstart and force him into society  ���a thing whicli no person in America has  the  power of'doing.'- The existence of a  system of.artificial rank  enables a .stamp  to be given to base metal in Europe whicli  can not be given iu a thomughly republican country."    lie further points out that  the feeling in this country toward the very  : '   is one of curiosity and wonder rather  nothing of the Ca.nadhui knights, created,  in her  un.mc.  though most of them, when  they have benight their insignia anel pre>-  cured :i coat-of-arnis from the herald's  offie-e;, cross the Atlanticand are presented.  France tried to found a hoi odilary aristocracy in Canada. Cardinal Bichelieu provided foi- the erection of duchies, marqui-  sates. viscoiintes, and baronies, but began the experiment .with seigniories, and  never got any further. In 1700, the title  of baron ele liongeuil was conferred upon  one Charles do Moyne by the king of  France, and, in IKSI. queen Victoria recognized the right of Charles Colnier  Grant, a. descendant of the first baron, to  wear the tjt|o, This is the only peerage  directly connected with Canada which  will last beyond the life-time of the present holder, iinel Mr, Grant is not a resident  of Canada. Several French Canadians  have been knighted ol' late. Others have  received the Legion of Honor from the  French Hepublic, and few have boon honored by the pope.  Farming Out Damage Suits.  A   new  enterprise of some account i.s  looming up.    It i.s'the farming out of railroad damage suits.    Three years ago the  officers of one of the  trunk  linos asked a  firm of lawyers what sum they would take  to defend   the   road   in   all  suits arising  from  death, accident, and  destruction of  property, tinel   pay the damage in ease e>f  ios_.    Tho  lawyers  named' a  figure, and  have since relieved the oflicers of all anxiety   anel,    virtually,   of   responsibility.  Their undertaking, like insurance, is some-:  what speculative, but they have killed so  many suits  in'the courts anel  have com-  pronii.s-.id oij  sueji  -ulyatageou.s terms in  other cases that  they have made a large  prolit.    Other  roads  have  followed   suit  within a year or so, nnd now several firms  of lawyers are devoting themselves to this  work,   A road that hardly includes three  hundred iniles of track  j.s unclprstood to  pay sixty-five thousand dollars a year as  an insuiunco against damage suits.  oeur d'Alene  HOTEL  Nelson, B.C.
