Or They Would Not so Openly Try to Bribe  the Electors of This Riding With Promises  of Future Appropriations.  There i.s no sure tiling that Theodore  Davie will have a majority in the next  house that will work with him. The election of Dr. Walkem in South Nanaiino  and Mr. McGregor in Nanainio City will  be contested, and both are likely to be  unseated for 'bribery. In Cariboo the  election will have to be held over again,  as the election proclamation was issued  before the writs were received. Latest  reports go to show that colonel Baker is  defeated in East Kootenay, and that Mr.  Vornon will be defeated in East Yale.  M.r. Kellie, however, is likely to defeat  Mr. Brown in the north riding of West  Kootenay. The government party carried  'Victoria through the cry, "Vote for your  homes!" a cry that could only mean, vote  for a government that will do its utmost  to pledge the credit of the -province .in-  order that JLl. P. Rithet will be able to  build the British Pacific, a railway that  will be a'competitor of the Canadian Pacific's and have its western terminus at  Victoria. The cry was sprung at the last  ..moment, and won. The cry that is expected to win in the south riding of West  Kootenay is, "If the government candidate is not elected, the district will not  get its share of public money." Electors  who will allow that cry to influence them  are unworthy the right of suffrage.  Every dollar that is expended in the district is contributed by the people who  live here and whose property interests  are here. They are entitled to every dollar that is likely to be given the district,  and if they are what they profess themselves, their expression at the polls will  be that Mr. Davie and his governmental  unworthy of-support; A party that, has  nothing more to offer than promises of  future appropriations must not only be  lacking in principle, but brains as well.  A Dominion Government Oi'gan on the Election.  The Citizen, the organ of the Dominion  government at Ottawa, has an article reviewing the elections in British Columbia,  in the course of which it says: "The  Ma-inlanders are Canadians, that is, settlers for the most part from the eastern  provinces who have gone out since KSS5,  and there is certain rivalry between them  and the Islanders, who are British Columbians proper, or "colonists." The former  wish to have the seat of government at  Vancouver, a city which has recently  arisen at the terminus of the Canadian  Pacific: railway, but the government has  taken means to retain Victoria as the  capital by erecting new parliament buildings there at a cost of $.1,000,000. Naturally  enough, Maiulanders were indignant that  such a trick should be played upon them  and they demanded a redistribution bill  giving a fair proportion of seats to their  division of the province. Although such  a bill was promised the session before last  in the speech from the throne, it was not  introduced until this year, and in the  meantime the government took advantage of the unequal and disproportionate  representation of Vancouver Island to  pass.a vote for the erection of new buildings at Victoria, and the buildings are  now half up. What the result of the  present contest may be still remains to be  seen. Great bitterness has marked the  struggle, dim to the sense of wrong on the  part' of the people of the .Mainland.  Whether the device of anchoring the  buildings at Victoria will secure government support to that city is difficult to  answer. British Columbia members here  view the situation with alarm, over the  solid phalanx from the island, and they  naturally feel that a new issue has been  drawn and the Mainland, out of self-  respect, if not self-defence, will present a  solid front to their opponents."  Will G. O. Leave Us for Good.  The following is pretty good, coining as  it does from The Miner, a non-resident  corporation organ. In its last issue it  says: "Homomber that Mr. Hume has  been trying lor a year or so to sell out his  business and go back to his home in Nova  Scotia." The Miner is mistaken. Mr.  Hume never lived in Nova Scotia. His  home is at Nelson, and his property interests are all in West Kootenay, where they  are likely to be for the next four years,  or during the time that Mr. Hume will be  the district's representative in# the provincial legislature. However, it is currently rumored that George Owen Buchanan will shake the dust of the district  from his feet and take up his permanent  residence at Victoria. Possibly Mr. Buchanan's change of residence is brought  about because of an unwillingness to do  business wilh the men whom his supporters class as "hobos," the "gentlemen" who  support him not being large buyers of  lumber, or'anything else except  "long  1*1 "  drinks.   Bribery and Intimidation.  The supporters of George Owen Buchanan, although they profess to bo "gentlemen," aie not above attempting both  bribery and intimidation^ One hotel-  keeper was told that if he didnot vote for  Mr. Buchanan threes of his hoarders  would withdraw I heir patronage. Another   hotolkeeper  was   sent  a  keg  of  whisky and a barrel of beer, with the intimation that it be used where it would  do the inost good. The foreman of a gang  of men at work on the Columbia & Koot-  enay railway was asked if a few boxes of  cigars and a bottle or two of whisky  would not influence the men to vote for  Mr. Buchanan'. The would-be briber was  kicked off the work. A merchant has  threatened that if any 'man in his employ  votes for Mr. Hume, he must look elsewhere for employment. Many more instances could be given of like attempts.  Every man in Kootenay who is a qualified-  voter should go to the polls and vote for  the man he believes to be the most honorable in business, and he will be voting for  the candidate who will best represent the  district in the legislative assembly. The  man who is willing to be bribed is as unworthy of the right to vote as is the man  who offers the bribe; and the man who  allows himself to be intimidated is a coward, and a coward should not have even  standing room in British Columbia.

Under the Elections Act stipendiary  magistrates are not allowed to vote. Denying them the right to vote clearly shows  that they should not take any part in  election campaigns. If arrests are made  in this riding for any violations of the  provisions of the Elections Act, the parties  arrested will be tried before the stipendiary magistrate resident in the riding, a  man who is generally admitted to be the  manager of the government forces. But  if not the manager, he is certainly one of  Mr. Buchanan's most active partisans.  The judiciary should, at least, be above  suspicion.      _   Was Speechless for Onco.  The day that .John Grant and G. O.  Buchanan came down to Kaslo from  making political speeches in the Slocan  country was a hot one. When they  ncared the mineral spring which is not  far from McDonald's halfway house, Mr.  Buchanan remarked that they would  have something to drink on going a short  distance farther. On reaching the spring  Mr. Buchanan dipped up a tinful and insisted that Mr. Grant drink first. Mr.  Grant refused, saying: "Oh, no; it's only  water." Kor the first time during the  trip, candidate Buchanan was speechless.  Talked Too Much.  Dr. Watt who represented Cariboo in  the last assembly was knocked out at the  election. He is likened unto G. O. Buchanan, who is running as the government candidate in the south riding of  West Kootenay. He talked himself into  a political grave.  Low Rate to Tacoma.  The Canadian Pacific has given the  mine owners of Trail Creek district an $S  rate on ore shipped to Tacoma. This is a  cait on the rate given by way of Spokane  and the Northern Pacific;.  HUME   IN   THE   SLOCAN.  Makes a Favorable Impression Wherever He  Goes.  The electors of the Slocan stole a inarch  on Fred Hume and intercepted him on  the way to Rykert's and carried him off  into the mountains. Altogether he has  addressed three meetings and everyone of  them has been a success. The modest and.  unassuming way in which he .has stated  his position and his principles'has-won  him friends everywhere, and the way he  came out flat-footedSfor the planks of his  party's platform has shown him to all to  be a man who will not truckle to anybody,  who has taken a stand on good solid  ground and will stay by it. He was accompanied from Kaslo by R. B. Kerr, who  assisted him at Watson, Three Forks, and  New Denver.  A crowded meeting was held in Three  Forks on Tuesday night in Foster's restaurant. Athol Fraser, a representative  working man of the country and an employe till lately of tlie.Nakusp &Slocan  Railway Company, was unanimously  voted to the chair. Mr. Fraser introduced  Mr. Hume in a few well-chosen words.  Our representative that is to be then  made a short speech. It was short but  very much to the point. It was punctuated all through ..with applause and such  remarks as "Good shot! "Hear, hear!"  "One for you!" Mr. Kerr addressed the  meeting next. He was warmly received.  'Other'speeches;were made by E. C. Carpenter, D. B. Bogle, and Pat Gannon.  The meeting broke up with enthusiastic  cheering for Fred Hume.  Mr. Hume set out for New Denver next  morning. During the day he went to Sil-  verton and explained that"he. had to  hurry back to Kootenay lake 'on Thursday, and invited the electors up to his  meeting at New Denver and they came,  all of them. The meeting at New Denver  was a tremendous success. -Ay 1 win's hall,  which was let for the occasion, was beautifully decorated with flowers and banners, towards which Mrs. Mclnnes worked  nobly. A floral service bearing the  words, "J. Fred Hume, Welcome," was'  suspended above the platform, which Avas  liberally"decorated witli. vases of flowers.  William Hunter was voted into the 'chair  and introduced the candidate. Mr. Hume's  speech was a great contrast to the arid  wastes of Buchanan's' oratory. It was  pithy phrased in short sentences and in  every word there was a good, pregnant  point. Fred Hume will be a weighty  speaker before he is through with public  life. R. B. Kerr followed and was as fresh  as if he had not made four or live speeches  before on the same topic. John Grant  (who had hurried over from Kaslo and  arrived some little time before the meeting) followed. It is difficult to make a  rehash interesting. But he dragged on  for an hour or two till the audience grew  weary. Red Paddy then took the floor  and gave Mr. Grant some conundrums he  couldn't answer and had to work to evade.  It was hard work to getaway from them  with Paddy shaking a forefinger of scorn  and rebuke at him and saying, "Now,  John, you know as well as I do." Paddv  scored and the audience was convulsed.  D. B. Bogle followed and then the meeting broke up with three uproarious cheers  for Fred Hume and for the chairman.  Bill Hunter.   National Sentiment.  The early Christians for a long time actually despised patriotism. They not only  saw and felt that on this earth they had  no abiding city, but they claimed to owe  their allegiance to a higher power. This  was a notion   that  prevailed   until  the  growth of national sentiment became  strong enough to make a Christian a patriot as well. Machiavelli, who had a  lively appreciation of the pagan virtues,  was one of the first writers of renown to  exalt patriotism to a high place among  the virtues. \n his eye, till was fair in  war, if not in love, and he openly declared  his admiration for those who loved their  country better than the safety of their  souls.  Patriotism was, in short, an old world  virtue, which, at the time of the renaissance, was dragged out of its recess and  refurbished for the use of the modern  world. Kclipsed for a season, it hasshown  as bright again as ever it did in Greece or  Home. Many a mini has since been cast  in the mold of Aristides or of Hegulus.  But if is curious to observe that when national sentiment was weak there was in  some respects a greater sense of the brotherhood of man than there is today.  Amid all its wars and turmoil. Kurope  made a nearer approach to solidarity and  union. Christianity was a great welding  force. The dreams of a universal church  were in some slight degree realized, and  the holy Homan empire was a stupendous  fact wliich formed a cementing bond between many disorganized races.  Stage Robber Captured.  Superintendent Hussey of the provincial  police reports capturing the man who robbed the Cariboo stage week before last.  He was arrested at Alkali lake and  brought in by Basil Kagle. Superintendent Hussey found the gold dust  stolen from the mail carrier's custody in  his possession, and he has been identified  by the settler at whose house; he stayed  on the night of the 21th, and from whom  he stole a guunysack which provided him  his mask. The dispatch concludes that  he is without doubt the right man. Anyway, he was tried before judge Cornwall  at tin! ISO-Mile house on tin; llh; was  found guilty, and sentenced to ten years  in the penitentiary. 11(5 was sentenced  under the name of Sam Slick.  FELL   INTO   A   SHAFT.  A Prayer that was not Finished Because of  Fright.  It was noon at the Blue Jay mine, and  the. men had come out of the tunnel to eat  the not over dainty luncheon prepared for  them by French Pete, the Blue Jay chef.  Dan Glass, boss of the lower, workings,  was the first to finish, and lighting his  pipe, he commenced to regale them with  stories of "the sixties, when Quartz Hill  was a honeycomb of mines." Breaking  off suddenly in the midst of one Of his  favorite exploits, he smiled broadly and  exclaimed: "There be comes now!" indicating, pipe in hand, with an oracular  wave, a sturdy-looking young man coni1  ing down the trail that led from Humbug  City to the mine.  "You all thought I had been budgin'  over in Humbug, 'cause I coined in late  this morning; but I hadn't. I'd jest been  attendin' a little before-breakfast matinee  in which tliet young feller there played'a  solo part-way up���-er down. Youse know  'him mostly���he's the express agent what  hangs out at Winning Card. Well, where  dy'e spose I found him this morning?"  "You shut up, Dan. Here is the quart  I promised you," said the subject of Dan's  remarks, coming up and handing out a  bottle marked "Egyptian Cough.Mixture,  S. T. 1800, X.," which Dan promptly appropriated and fondiy. applied., to his lips,  his movements followed by six pairs-of.  envious eyes.  "You can't keep it, so I might as well  tell the straight of it myself," continued  the young man, balancing himself'precariously upon an overturned wheelbarrow.  "I guess you will laugh���Dan did; but I  ain't seen where the laugh comes in yet.  I may when my hair gets to laying flat  enough for me to comb, which it ain't as  yet."  "You see, it was like this. I had been  over at Humbug, calling on a female  friend of mine at the Gold Dust hotel, and  the time slipped by so pleasantly that  when! looked at my watch I found I had  less than an hour to get over to Winning  Card to get the bullion out of the safe for  the Silver City stage, which passes about  eleven o'clock. You know how the road  winds around Quartz hill from Humbug  to the Card'?���it's a good five mile, mostly  uphill. Well, I knew that I couldn't make  it that way, and as it was such a bright  moonlight night 1 thought that 1 would  chance old Ashby's trail over the hills,  which isn't over two miles. You know  Ashby's trail, Dan? That's the one him  and Dick Dunn fought about, and he had  to kill Dick."  "Yep," replied Dan, his eyes twinkling  with   amusement.     "I    coomed   over   it  break o' day this morn in', an' "  "Never mind," broke in Hastings. "I  thought I could see well enough to keep  out of the holes and make pretty good  time, but the old hill's got an abandoned  mine every fifty foot, and they run from  ten to five hundred feet deep. 1 don't believe there is a curb or board over the  whole blessed lot. Well, I was making  good time enough until I came along to  where I judged the Bob-tail Extension  was���a good six hundred feet- deep, if it's  a foot���when I noticed that the sky was  clouding up. In about five minutes I felt  a chilly gust of wind, and then itsuddenly  got blacker than of stack of black cats.  Knowing where I was and the danger of  stepping into the Bob-tail, made the cold  chills play tag. up and down my spinal  column. I slowed up, and for a while  shoved one foot ahead of the other until I  begun to get careless, thinking that I  knew the lay of the land well enough to  know that I was past the worst of it.  Suddenly, just as I started to sing the  first verse of'The Days of'1U,' I stepped  on nothing but oxygen���and I knew to a  dead certainty that I was falling into the  Bob-tail!  "If I live to be a thousand years old, I  will never forget the feeling of horror  that took possession of me. As I plunged  forward, I instinctively threw out my  arms, and fetched, breast up, against a  piece of scantling���the only thing left of  a floor that had once covered the shaft  with a suddenness that took away my  breath. I hung onto that scantling like  grim death, for I knew it was the only  thing between me and the hereafter; but  I was limp and nerveless from the slink-  ing-up I had received.  "After a while, though. I put out one  foot and felt for the left wall-couldn't  reach it! Tried a little harder, and got  so interested in the operation that, I slipped my hold on the board, and barely  caught it with my hands! I tell you. my  heart came up into my mouth, and I could  feel the cold sweat dropping from under  my cap and running down my back. But  I had touched the side, and in doing so  knocked off a piece of wall-rock, chinkely-  chink, cliiiikety-chtink, until I counted  thirteen, then a faint splash in the bottom.  "I was so weak by this time that I could  not wriggle one band over the other and  make the side that way. All I could do  was to hang on and yell. And didn't I  yell, though! But no one heard nie except  ii lonesome old coyote, who came up and  had a yell with mo. After a while I made  up my mind that I'd got to go, and t hen I  began to think of every mean thing I ever  did in my life, from drowning kittens to  -well, no matter what to and the few  good things; they didn't fake me long.  You can laugh, if you want to; but I ain't  going to drink any more; I can tell you  that, now!  "I thought of myself lying in that black  pito' liell, starving and mangled, wishing  for death (hat came so slow. Somehow,  that seemed all right���I could stand that;  but when I thought of the five hundred  dollars, stage company money, in my  pocket, and they advertising mo as an absconding thief���it was worse than horrible!  "It was about that time that I began to  feel around for the end of a prayer or two  that I used  to know when P was a kid,  and as I repeated the familiar 'Now I lay  me down to  sloop,' I could see my old  gray-haired mother,-away down east on  the old home, farm-in  Vermont���I could  see her sitting in the little low rocking-  chair   in ; the   west window,  where   she  wrote mo she would always sit as the sun  went down  in the west, and give him a  message to deliver to her dear boy, to deliver when he smiled -upon him after she  had gone to bed.    I could see father come  in and hand her the paper���the one I subscribed to for her when J first came here.  I could see her dear old face  flush with  pleasure at the thought that she was .soon  to read, a 'personal' about our 'Our gen-  tleinanly and efficient express agent,' like  they are always putting in out here.   The  dear old lady feels nervously about for  her spectacles, which she can never find,  where she has pushed them up on her  forehead.   At last she has them safely in  front of her eyes, and has smoothed the  ruffled gray hairs into place.   She opens  the paper and stares hard *at the scare  head:   'Stop  Thief?   Where is  Edward  Hastings, and where, oh!   where is the  stage company's $500?'   I  could see   her  read the infernal black black letters in a  dazed way���then the truth���the lie, the  black lie���gather  up-her bruised .-'spirit-  and bear it away while her head is bowed  in grief!   And���and I could see myself in  that d���d hole, mangled and bleeding!  "I thought all this, and more, too, boys.  A man lives a long time when he knows  that he has got' to die the next minute.  Then I felt my grip slowly relaxing. I  commended my soul to God, shut my eyes,  let go and dropped !"  The interest of his listeners was intense*  now. Even Dan's hand shook a little as  betook his pipe from between his lips,  and Basting's voice-dropped almost to a  whisper.-' He paused a moment, and  added:  "Dropped ��� just eighteen inches!"  There was a dead silence for fully half  a ---minute; then Grasshopper Jim, "fin  Kansas," got up, slowly wiped his eyes  with the back of his hand, inspected the  hand -critically .-for-a moment, and as  slowly wiped it clown his boot leg, where  it left a long damp streak in its wake.  Then he sat down again, and ejaculated  amid the approving glances of every miner  present:  "Well, I call that ther a d~(\ shame!"  The S. T. 1H()(), X., bottle was passed  from lip to lip, but no motion was made  to ��� pass it on to Hastings until Dan recovered enough to explain that the story  was true in every particular���that he  could vouch for the most of it. Hastings,  in fact, had fallen into the Bob-tail shaft,  and the only reason hehad fallen eighteen  inches, instead of six hundred feet, was  because in digging the mine the miners  had found after going down about six  feet that they were some four feet to the  left of the vein, and had simply "shelved"  and gone on; and that morning, as he was  coming to work, he had" found Hastings  "roosting onto thet shelf," too weak from  fright to help himself out!  Missouri .Joe had evidently sifted the  whole matter through his mind, and was  not satisfied with the conclusion. "I  s-a-ay, Neddie," he drawled; "what (lid  you do when you struck bottom ? Did  you linish that there prayer?"  Ned    colored    guiltily   as   he   replied:  "Naw,   you   know    I    didn't   finish   the  prayer.    What do you suppose I did?"  "Jest cussed." suggested Joe.  "Sure!" answered Svt\.  Is Likely to be Smelted at Nelson.  The indications now tire that a smelter  will be erected at Nelson to.matte the ore  from the Silver King group of mines. He-  turns have been received from the shipment of ore sent to Swansea, Wales, and  accompanying the returns was a report  that tht! ore could be more profitably  smelted before than after concentrating.  A shipment of 100 tons will at once be  made to Denver, and if the Swansea report is concurred in. smelting works will  no erected. The contract for hauling the  ore for shipment was awarded to William  Wilson, who also got the contract for  hauling the machinery now at Nelson. It  is expected that the machinery will be in  operation in thirty days, and when in  operation the working force is likely to  lie increased to eighty or a hundred men.

Winslow Hall, who is an old-tinier in Col-  ville valley, says the recent high water  overflowed part of his farm, but the overflow was from a small creek, not from the  Columbia river.

A COMPANY THAT MEANS BUSINESS  NO   MORE   SPLURGING;   BUT,,  INSTEAD,  SOLID AND  SURE WORK.  Manager Hendryx of the Pilot Bay Com; any  Has Faith in the Kootenay Country, and  Will Run the Smelter as a Business Proposition, '���   '  A.  B.   Hendryx, of the company that  owns the smelter at Pilot Bay and the  Blue Bell mine opposite Ainsworth, was  in Nelson the fore part of  the week.    He  said thatassoon as it could be ascertained  what .was-best to be done, work would be  commenced at Pilot Bay.   The water i.s  yet too high to allow of'.the wharf being  .repaired; but when work  is commenced  it will be'carried oh continuously.   The  smelter will be completed and operated as  a custom smelter.   Mr. Hendryx believes  that there is enough ore.-in the country of  which Pilot Bay i.s the most central point  to run the smelter without interruption,  and that the ore will be forthcoming once  mine owners are assured that they have a  home market at which they can realize as  good if not better prices than can be obtained in foreign markets.  The passage of the Wilson bill by congress''must cause a fall in the price of all  the' .metals,'and lead will fall below $3,  for Spanish -'lead has time and again been  sold in New York for $1.So, duty unpaid;  and there is no reason why itshoiild bring  more after the passage of the Wilson bill,  which places but a cent a pound duty on  load. If the lead ores of the Kootenay  country can be smelted at home, a saving  can be made on freight; and if a home  niarket can be found for the products of  lead, the duty can be saved. If this saving is equitably divided between the  smelter owner and the mine." owner, the  country-at-large cannot well be the sufferer; for every man that finds profitable  employment in Kootenay is a consumer  of products of other sections of Canada.  The mere fact of the -arrival of -Mr. Hendryx has given -claim-owners "heart" to  begin work, and within sixty-days the  number of claims that will be producing  ore will appear incredible to those who  were losing faith in themselves and the  country.  Will Work the Ruby Silver.  C. L. Knapp, a capitalist of Spokane,  went to the Ruby Silver mine in Slocan  district during the week with a season's  supplies.    He intends putting a force of  men at work at once. Like many another  citi/.en of the United States, Mr. Knapp  has Jinn faith in the ultimate ascendency  of the white metal, lie says America  must take a position on the silver question and hold to it. He litis recently had  some correspondence with professor Lat/.  of the university at Munich in Bavaria,  who was prominent in the monetary conference held at Berlin lately. The professor states that: Germany cannot lake a  position on bimetallism, but there is no  need for America to wait for her. If the  United-' States takes the lead, Hngland  ' and the countries in the Latin Union, as  well as all other countries where a silver  currency is used, will follow.  Will Begin Work on the Democrat.  John (.'. Steel, late cashier of the  Browne National Bank of Spokane, left  Kaslo last Monday with supplies to begin  active operations on the Democrat, a claim  near the Alamo in Twin Lake basin,  Slocan district. Mr. Steel, together with  Spokane and New York parties, now owns  this claim and will work it for till it is  worth. Mr. Steel spent the past winter  and spring in the east, lie says everyone  there is in favor of silver at a ratio of Hi  to I. but. the question is how to bring it  about. The Democrat will soon lie surveyed and a crown grant applied for,  which shows its owners must have faith  in its future productiveness.  May His Prediction Prove True.  Development work is proving that there  is a well-defined gold lead extending from  the Golden King claim on Toad mountain  to Porty-nine creek. On Toad mountain  il runs parallel with the Silver King lead,  and. where e.\po-ed. varies in width. On  I he Starlight the lead is from three to  seven feet wide. ,and on the Black Witch  and Victoria even wider in place.-. The  ore has been sampled, and it runs all the  way from $S loif'liO a ton. A well-known  mining man who is operating on Total  mountain predicts that Toad mountain  will be a larger producer of gold than of  either silver or copper. .May his prediction prove true.  Prospecting a Now Section.  Ike Loiigheed, Oscar Hall, and Bob  Lougley have returned from a prospecting trip they made into the country at  the head of Ghroiiiau. Sproule. and Lemon  creeks, a section that has never before  been prospected, Mr. Loughccd claims n  trail could be made that would bring  Slocan lake within twenty miles of Nelson. They found a lead, (lie ore of which  carries copper and silver: if in paying  quantities, the boys believe I hey have a  good I hing.  All Looking Woll.  Prank ('. Loring, who is interested in  tlic.losic.ii well-known properly in Trail  Creek district, is in Nelson purchasing  supplies. Twelve men are at work on the  Josie. 10 on the Le Hoi. and Son the War  Kagle. All the above mines are looking  well. THE TRIBUNE:   NELSON, B.C., SATURDAY, JULY H,  1894.  PUBLISHERS' NOTICE.  Tin?

Again: M r. Hume is a resident of the district who is not contemplating a change  of residence, either to Victoria or elsewhere.: Is he not, then, more likely to be  at all times in touch with the people of  the district than a man who has no interests in the district, and who is likely to  move from the district? Again: A live  and watchTul opposition member will be  of greater value to the province than a  subservient supporter ol! the government.  The one will be on the alert to. oppose objectionable measures; the other must support objectionable' measures if introduced  by the government of which he is a part  and parcel.    Encourage opposition.  DON'T   HAVE   THE   BLUES!  PLATFORM   OF  PRINCIPLES.  ^nOH'KP'HV  DKI.KOATKS  IN  CO.VVKNTION   ON   TIIK   M'l'II  OK  AI'IUI.,   ISill.  Whereas, the men that upbuilt the Dominion of Canada  were not of one nativity, and if a healthy patriotic  sentiment is to prevail, and only by the growtl^ of  such a sentiment can Canada take a place among Eug-  lish-speaking 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  by Divine rigltt. Therefore, be it resolved ���  First. That we hold as reprehensible the practice of  appointing non-residents to otticial positions in interior  districts, and we maintain that all ollices, where practicable, should bo tilled by residents of the district wherein  the ollicial performs duty.  Second. Special and private legislation not only consumes too grout-a part ot the,time thatshould be devoted  to the consideration of public measures, but it leads to  practices that tend to lessen coulidencc in the integrity  of the legislative assembly, and through it an insidious  poison is disseminated that in time will lind its way  throughout the whole organism of the body politic:  therefore, we favor the enactment of general laws that,  will reduce to a minimum special legislation and do  away with private legislation altogether.  Third. The interests of tlie province were not  safe-guarded in the agreement between the government  and the Xakusp & Slocan Railway Company,' and the  policy of the government in pledging the credit of the  province, in order that speculative companies may protit,  thereby, i.s to be condemned.  Fourth. After making provision for the payment of  the running expenses of the government, expenditures  should be confined solely to the building and betterment  of wagon roads and other works that are for the free use  and benefit of the public-ar-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 diti'erences between the province and the Dominion, to the end that  the land within the railway belt along the Canadian  Pacilic railway be thrown open to settlement under the  land laws of the province; the amendment of the Land  Act so that if will be an equitable contract between  the province and the settler, eliminating all discretionary  powers of the chief commissioner..of lands and works;  al.so 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 to surface rights impossible; that  levies unequal taxation on working miners; and that  makes it ditiicult to compel delinquent co-owners to pay  their share of assessment work; therefore, we favor the  repeal of sections ,S and -15a of the Mineral Act and a  revision of the sections relating to mining partnerships.  Eighth. The passage of an act whereby water rights  for any specific purpose may be 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 Kootenay district of terms of  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 in courts composed of justices of the peace.  Eleventh. The extortions to which laborers on railway  construction and other works are compelled to submit,  through the issuance of time-checks, is alike discreditable to the men who prolit by such practices and to the  government that makes no effort to render such practices  -impossible. The issuance of non-negotiable time-checks  should be made a punishable olfonce. 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 means of getting speedy redress from unjust classification and unfair measurement of work by  the appointment of an ollicial arbitrator who shall be  a practical engineer.  Thirteenth. The government it-'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 liy-  kert'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 pledge himself to do his utmost to carry out the  views expressed in the resolutions adopted by this convention, and Mint, each delegate to this convention make  every effort Io secure the election of the nominee of the  convention.  Resolved, that the lands embraced within railway  grunts should be immediately surveyed, in order that  they be open to settlement.  Resolved, that the people living in the valley of Kootenay river bet ween the lake and t bo International boniid-  dary line and those living in Fire Valley on the west side  of Lower Arrow lake are justly entitled to mail facilities,  and that we deem it a duly to urge that postolllees he  established at Rykert'.s custom-house and at a central  point in Fire Valley.

Aii eastern   Canada paper  contains a  timely article, in  which it advises merchants never to look upon the blue side of  the business situation however depressing  it may be.    It urges the keeping of a stiff  upper lip and a determination to. make  the best of it in every emergency, adding  that if one can not say just where the  money is to   come from  with" which to  liquidate obligations, it is not the time to  sit down and feel like giving up the fight.  Discussing the same subject a New England  paper deprecates the practice of talking  about one's troubles to other people, as it  will not help one's credit in fact the situation is sure to be made .much worse than  ic really is, and, besides, will prevent men  who might otherwise be disposed to make  monetary advances giving the subject the  slightest consideration. Moreover, another  matter is forcibly dwelt upon, and that is  that if a merchant goes around among his  clerks and employes with a wry face his  influence is sure to be a-'depressing'one.  It  takes the heart out of a clerk to feel  that'his employer is in a bad way financially, and there i.s a probability of losing  his own place. Clerks are very apt to lose  their interest in their work when they feel  that the}''have nothing to look toward to;  but the man who is always cheerful, even  in dull times, is a. source of inspiration to  those who work with him and for him.  In Vancouver, the bribe offered was  a dry dock, a university, and a portfolio in the cabinet. In New Westminster  district, the bribe was unlimited relief to  the Hood sufferers and promises of unlimited road making and dyke building in  the near future. Ju Yale district, the  bribe was promises of financial aid to-projected reihvays in the district. In Kootenay, the bribe is: Future Appropriations!  The pernicious activity in the election  of men holding ollicial position under the  provincial government is remarked by  everyone who believes in fair play. At  Revelstoke, the office of the collector of  voters is the committee room of the .supporters of-the government candidate; at  Nelson, a provincial constable is an active  and outspoken supporter of the government candidate.  NEITHER  SEA  NOR  LAND.  Is  West Kootenay likely  to  be  better  served   by   an abject follower of a government that does not need his support,  or by a member who is  not.  required or  expected   to give slavish  support to the  government?   The one will  be told that  he must take what i.s given him, and being  a party man, lie will submit.    The other,  not   owing   allegiance   to   the   party   in  power, can fightat all times for the people  of his district.   That m  I lie situation in  (.hi! south riding. Ceorge Owen Ihichanan  is tied, by pledges, to the1 apron strings of  the Davit? government, and if elected, it  will be thumbs up with him when ordered  by his masters; he will  not dare to act  contrary to their wishes, for was not his  nomination  dicta fid   by Mr. Davie?    My  electing .John Fred Hume, the people will  se Mire the services of a member pledged  It 'would "hardly appear possible that  George Owen Buchanan is supported by  all the "gentlemen'' in the south riding,  for his managers have been guilty of  practices and offences that smack too  much of the gutter. His organ, The  Miner, although under the management  of and supported by men who esteem  themselves gentlemen, has resorted, time  and again, to persoualabu.se of not only  Mr. Hume, but of the men who support  him. If actions and words indicate anything, Mr. Buchanan's chief supporters  are men lacking in many of the qualities  attributed to gentlemen.  If the people of Kootenay would be  "bossed" for another four years by Gilbert Malcolm Sproatand his cronies���men  who have not done anything, and who  will not do anything, to advance the material interests of the district���-let them  go to the polls and vote for Theodore  Davie's candidate. If they would be their  own masters, let them go to the polls and  vote for John Fred Hume, who owes allegiance to no boss.  A rumor is in circulation that George  Owen Buchanan intends, no matter what  the outcome of the election is, to remove  to Victoria, where he will engage in business. The people of Kootenay have always expressed themselves as opposed to  being represented in the legislative assembly by ti non-resident of the district, and  they will see to it that on Tuesday next  that the member-elect is a man who has  not only material interests in the district,  but who is not above living amongst the  people whom he serves. No non-resident  member for Kootenay!  Tin-: government party managers in  Kootenay have not offered arguments in  support of l heir cause; they have simply  heaped coarse abuse on those who opposed  them, and made predictions that the district would not get anything in the way  of appropriations unless a supporter of  Mr. Davie was elected member. Coarse  abuse is not .argument; and a government  that threatens to withhold appropriations from it district because its people  have the manliness to stand up for what  they believe to be right, is a manifestly  unfair one and unworthy of support.  Tin-: men who support Mr. Hume pay  more than half the taxes collected in the  south riding, own more than half the mineral claims in the riding, do three-fourths  of I hi! hard work, and transact two-thirds  of the legitimate business. Vet they are  classed as "hobos" by Mr. Buchanan's  supporters.  Till-: campaign that will close on Tuesday has been, as fur as the government  party is concerned, one of open and unblushing bribery. In Victoria and the  districts on the Island, the bribe offered  was the Canada Western Hail way, and  judging from the returns, the bribe offered   was  accepted   by  the  electorate,  John Grant, who is in the south  riding of West Kootenay, doing missionary work for George Owen Buchanan, is  very guarded in his expressions as to the  probable outcome of the election. Mr.  Buchanan is personally unpopular, and as  he was not approachable before he became  a candidate, his .efforts of late to be a  hail-fellow with the common, every-day  elector is well understood to be for election -purposes only.  The supporters of Mr. Hume are self-  reliant men and have not called for assistance from the outside. They are not  office-seekers, 'and after they have elected  Mr. Hume they will follow the same pursuits as before his election. The supporters of M4\ Buchanan -proved themselves  lacking in self-reliance, for have they not  brought men all the way from Victoria  to help them in their fight? After the  election, they will demand from Mr. Davie  the price of their support,- that is, the  spoils of oflice, for that is what they are  lighting for. ;        -  The campaign literature issued as  "Miner Extras" does not contain a single  extract from the speeches delivered by  "the silver-tongued orator of the interior." Are the speeches lacking in wisdom? If so, then why elect a man to  office who speaketh continually, yet say-  eth nothing?   The Vancouver World says it likes  honest men, no matter from where they  come. The electors of Vancouver are of  the same way of thinking, and they rejected every candidate favored by The  World.   "Had G. O. Buchanan not made a speech  " at Three Forks, he would have received  " considerable support at that place," was  the remark made by a well-know railway  contractor who makes his headquarters  at the Forks. Evidently the candidate  of the government party is not a philosopher, for if he were he would keep his  mouth shut.     DID   NOT   MINCE   WORDS.  The Plain Talk of a Member of Great Britain's  Parliament.  There was an unprecedented incident in  the house of commons when sir William  Vernon Harcourt, supported by Mr. Balfour, moved an address of congratulation  to the queen upon the birth of an heir to  the duke of York.  The motion was about to be put when  James Keir Hardie. probably the most  prominent of the labor members of parliament, said: "I owe allegiance to no hereditary ruler. The motion proposes to  raise to importance an event of every day  occurrence. I am delighted to learn the  child is in fair health. I shall be pleased to  join in the ordinary congratulations if 1  meet the child's parents, but when the  house of commons, representing the  nation, is asked to join in congratulations,  then, in the interest of the dignity of the  house, 1 protest.  "There is one aspect of the question  which concerns the house of commons. A  cabinet minister was required by law to  be present upon the interesting occasion.  I submit such a proceeding is not calculated to enhance the dignity of the house  in the eyes of the nation.  " Vott may say rot," continued Hardie,  "but if you mixed with those you represent you would find (he people view this  matter in a different manner. It seems  to me some protest ought lo be made in  this connection. It is a matter of small  consequence' whether the future ruler of  this country is a genuine article or a spurious one. The motion was made because  the child was born in the royal family,  and the house has the right lo ask what  particular blessing the royal family has  conferred upon the nation that it partake  in these proceedings.  "We are told the queen litis ruled for  half a century. I beg to correct this by  saying that her majesty litis reigned,  not ruled. There is the prince of Wales.  What special blessing has he conferred  upon the nation that we should rejoice  with him? I know nothing in the career  of his royal highness which commends  itself especially to inc. We are told a  fierce light beats on the throne, but sometimes we catch glimpses of his royal highness on the race courses.  "This child will be surrounded by sycophants and flatterers and will be taught  to believe himself king of creation. In  course of time he will tour the world with  rumors of morganatic marriages in his  train.  "As the house has not found time to  vote condolence with the widows, orphans  and others who are suffering from the  terrible colliery calamity in Wales, I protest against the present mummery."  The motion was then put. Hardie alone  irotested and it was adopted amid pro-  ongetl cheering.  The Wonderful Region in the Atlantic Which  No Man Has Penetrated.  The surface of it seems, says the writer,  like a-perfect meadow of seaweed. It is  supposed that this enormous mass of gulf  weed may'have been partly grown at the  bottom of the shallower parts of the sea  ancl partly torn from the shores of Florida and the Bahama islands by the force  of the Gulf Stream. It is then swept  round by the same agency'into the Sargasso sea, where it lives aiid propagates,  floating freely in inidoeeaii. And the  store is ever increasing, both by addition  and propagation, so that the meadow  grows more and more compact, and no  doubt tit the inner parts extends to a considerable depth below the surface.  Nor is this all; for tit least -two-thirds  of all the infinite flotsam and jetsam  which the Gulf Stream carries along with  it in its course sooner or later finds a resting place in the Sargasso sea. Here may  be seen huge trunks of trees torn from the  forests of Bra/.il by the waters of the  Amazon and floated down far out to sea  ��� until they were caught and swept along  by the current; logwood from Honduras,  orange trees from Florida, canoes and  boats from the islands staved in, broken,  and bottom upward; wrecks and remains  of all sorts, gathered from the rich harvest  of the Atlantic; whole keels or skeletons  of ruined ships, so covered with barnacles,  shells and weeds that the original outline  is entirely lost to view; and here and  there a derelict ship transformed from a  floating terror of the deep into a mystery  put out of reach of man-in a museum of  unexplained enigmas.  It is only natural that ships should carefully avoid this marine rubbish heap,  where the Atlantic shoots its' refuse. It  seems doubtful whether a sailing vessel  would be able to cut her way into the  thick network of weed even with a strong  wind behind her. Besides, if the effort  were rewarded with a-first delusive success, there would be the almost certain  danger that in the calm regions of the  Sargasso sea the wind would suddenly  fail her altogether, leaving her locked  helplessly amid the weed and drift and  wreckage, without hope of succor or  escape. With regard to a steamer, no  prudent skipper is ever likely to make the  attempt, for it would altogether choke up  his screw and render it useless.  The most energetic explorer of land or  sea will lind himself baffled with regard to  Sargasso sea by the fact that it is neither  the one nor the other. It is neither solid  enough to walk upon nor liquid enough  to afford passage to a boat. At the same  time any one who fell into it would certainly be drowned without being able to  swim for his life. Of course it is quite  conceivable that a very determined party  of pioneers might cut a passage for even  a small boat to the center. The work  would take an immense time, however,  and the channel would crrtainly close up  behind them as they proceeded. They  would have to take with them provisions  enough for the whole voyage, and a journey over a space equal to the continent of  Europe would probably require larger  supplies than could be conveniently  stowed away in a small boat. Besides,  there is no reason to suppose that the expedition would be worth the making, or  that the inner recesses of the Sargasso  sea would exhibit any marked differences  from the outer margin. The accumulation of weed would be thicker and more  entangled, and the drift and wreckage  would lie more thickly pressed together,  but that would be all. There is no possibility of the existence of anything but  marine life in this strange morass, unless  the sea birds have built their nests in the  masts or hull of some derelict vessel.  Mr. Beaven, and that gentleman's most  trusted friend, but there was too much  mossbackism about Mr. Beaven for him.  He is now, and has been for some time  past, an independent supporter of the  general policy of the government. Few  men know British Columbia better than  does John Grant. That he will make  staunch friends in Kootenay goes without  saying, and that is just the country for  such a hustler as Mr. Grant. The World  wishes him success." The World would  not print John Grant's private opinion of  the candidate he is working for, nor would  it print John Grant's opinion of the editor  of The World.  WASHINGTON  AND   ANDRE.  How to Prevent and Evade Insanity.  The last number of the Alienist and  Neurologist contains an interesting article  by Dr. William W. Ireland of Edinburgh,  Scotland, on the above subject. He holds  that persons accustomed to mental cultivation and discipline have great advantages in escaping from the taints of insanity. He thinks that mathematics is a  very healthful exercise for a disturbed  mind. He quotes Bacon, who says, "If a  man's wits do wander, let him study  mathematics, for in demonstrations, if  his wits be called away ever so little, he  must  begin again."   The   learning of  a  new language, Dr. Ireland says, .has been  found by experience to engage the mind  without fatiguing or harassing it. The  study of animated nature, /oology and  botany, with its illimitable fields and its  cultivation of the inceptive and receptive  faculties alike, and the opportunity it  gives for outdoor exercise, is a valuable  means of diversion for a mind unhinged  or litibit; to become so. But we must not  forget that all men tire not studious; the  great majority of men rather prefer pursuits which bring them in direct contact  and dealing with the outer world. He  who wishes to escape the morbid current  of his thoughts and fears should select  some one pursuit and involve himself in  action concerning it. Of till such occupations known to us, gardening is the most  wholesome and engrossing. Gardening  gives exercise to the body and mind alike,  and though mainly an out of door pursuit,  it also gives some employment under  cover.    The World on John Grant.  That John Grant's mission to Kootenay  i.s of a political character is asserted by  the Vancouver World, which says: "Ex-  mayor Grant, late M. I\ I'. for Victoria, is  in South Kootenay on business connected  with the mines in which he is interested.  Mr. Grant, we observe, has been giving  some attention to politics there. He has  been doing good work for Mr. Buchanan,  whose cause he has been espousing with  all (hi! vigor and energy for which Mr.  Grant is famous. Me is a'forcible speaker,  it pioneer of the pioneers, a thorough gentleman, and one of tin.1 most enterprising  mid progressive men in the country. For  it longtime he was a follower of the Hon.  One Beheaded in London and the Other Blown  Up in America.  George Washington's figure is oneof the  very few which have been erected in  Westminster Abbey for any other purpose than to do honor to the memory of  him who is represented. It does not appear that his presence among England's  noble dead resulted from tiny attempt to  reflect either honor or dishonor on his  memory. He stands there simply as one  of the two principal figures on the tablet  erected to commemorate the death of the  unfortunate major Andre. But even so  it appears that is presence is at times resented by some impulsive Briton, judging  from the following story in the Fall Mall  Maga/une:  "Forty odd years after his execution,  the remains of major Andre were removed'  from their place of interment at Tappan  to Westminster Abbey, and a marble tablet, ornamented with a group of figures,  was raised above theiii. In this group two  persons were conspicuous; one is Andre,  .apparently waving a, farewell to his British companions-in the distance; the other  is George Washington, seemingly refusing  an entreaty for the prisoner's release;.  Few people know that the father of the  American republic.stands thus in effigy in  Westminster Abbey, and, probably still  fewer are aware that occasionally his  head is knocked off by some fervent Briton  who resents the intrusion of so distinguished a rebel among England's loyal,  dead. A glance shows that Washington's  head has been freshly replaced, and tne  information is given that the last of these  emphatic vindications of Saratoga, "the  field of grounded arms," occurred a dozen  years ago.  "It is. striking to find that on both sides  of the Atlantic, despite the protestation  of friendship of these later days, the  memories that hangabout this incident  of Andre's death are still intensely bitter.  Fourteen years ago, Cyrus Field,' an  American of wide reputation, erected a  monument of Andre on the spot where he  died, bearing an inscription composed by  the late dean Stanley. One night, a few  months after, this shaft was overthrown  with dynamite. There was nothing in  the words it bore intended to rullle American sensibility; nor, probably, would  this slight memorial of a brave man's last  moments have been molested had it  been raised by English hands. The offense lay in that an American, in the year  1880, should commemorate with graven  eulogy the enemy, who, in 1780, came  within a hair's breadth of overturning  the embryo American commonwealth.  Public antipathy to the prostrate plinth  was not lessened when Mr. Field caused it  to be restored to its perpendicular position; and but a few weeks elapsed before  a violent explosion again startled the  neighboring village from its slumber, and  daylight revealed the objectionable stone  blown into such fragments as to preclude  its further restoration. It is a coincidence  that the destruction of Andre's monument in America and the latest breaking  off of Washington's head in Westminster  Abbey should have happened during the  same year.    General Herbert Called Down.  The feature of a sitting of the house at  Ottawa, one day last week, was a letter  of the minister of militia to major-general  Herbert, which Mr. Patterson read and  placed on the Hansard. The document  orders major-general Herbert tore-instate  colonel Powell at once. Nothing short of  what it contained would have satisfied  the temper of the house. Mr. Patterson  knew this well, for he was pressed upon  every side without any regard to politics  to make a full and complete statement at  once in the house. There were no two  opinions as to what the statement should  be. There are some, probably, who think  that the letter i.s not severe enough, but  the house accepted it as sufficient, as was  manifested by the applause with which  both Liberals and Conservatives greeted  the words of the minister of militia.  0. & K.

A   TOWN   AND   A   MAN.  The One a Hollow Sham, the Other a Greedy  Hypoci'ite.  The great railway strike that is now on  in the western states of the union is a,  sympathetic one. -In-May last the workmen employed in the car works tit Pullman, Illinois, asked tlutt the prices paid  for piece work be restored to the rate  prevailing before the reduction. Their  request was denied, and the men struck.  At their annual meeting in Chicago, the  American Railway I'nion took up the  matter, and by unanimous vote decided  to help their fellow-workmen tit Pullman  out, and the result was that a boycob was  declared against everything connected  with Pullman.' Tiik Tium'Niogives below  both sides of the question. The one side  is given in it sermon delivered at Pullman  by Rev, AV. 11. Uawardine of the Methodist church; the other is an extract from  a statement made by George M. Pullman,  president of the Pullmau Palace Car Com-  l>;iiiy.    RKV.   MP. CAW'A 15 DINK'S SKIt.MOX.  My conscience is clear. My congregation has assured me of a hearty sympathy.  I dare not take any other position. I cannot keep still and smother my convictions.  You need not fear that the company will  retaliate upon us as a church for anything-  1 may say. It (litre not in the face of  public opinion. And let me add, if the  fears of some of you should ever be realized, better a thousand times that our  church be disorganized by the company  than that we truckle to them, forego the  Cod given and American right to free  speech, smother our convictions, muzzle  our mouths, fawn beneath the smiles of  any rich man or corporation. .Better to  die for the truth t itui be forfeited by a lie.  "Suffer a word regarding Mr. Pullman  himself. 1 have nothing to say of him  that savors of fulsome eulogy or nauseating praise. I will not speak of him as a  philanthropist, for I have never seen or  lieard of any evidence of this. 1 will not  speak of his services to this age, because  I know of none. 1 will not refer to his  services to his country, as history is silent  thereon.  "In this age of rapidly increasing fortunes, when men become rich in tt day by  speculation, rearing ft fabric of success  upon the ruin of others, I am willing to  accord him all honor, but when Mr. Pullman, as ti public man, stands before the  world and demands of us that we regard  him as a benefactor to his race,'as a true  philanthropist, as one who respects his  fellow-men, who regards his employes  with the love of a lather for his children,  and would have us classify him with such  men as George Pea body, Peter Cooper,  and George \V. Childs, I confess, as a minister of the gospel, delivering my message  in the shadow of these deserted shops, I  fail utterly to see the point. The facts  are not in accordance with the assertions  made.  "If he is all this, then let me ask him a  question or two:  "I am not a financier, hut I believe I  know right from wrong. Why does not  Mr. Pullman stand before his directors  and demand of them, upon the basis of  morality and right, tlutt, instead of declaring a quarterly dividend of 2 per cent  in these terrible depressed times, they be  content with I), per cent and place'the  $111,000 representing the other one-half  per cent to the credit of the pay-roll?  "Why docs Mr. Pullman, in'the midst  of a hard and rigorous winter, when the  hours of work few and the wa/^cs at then1  lowest ebb; when whole families wore in  want; when the churches, burdened with  their heavy rents, were seeking to relieve  the poor, and that noble organization,  the Woman's Union���which we were not  allowed to call the 'relief for fear of hurting Mr. Pullman's pride���was doing all it  could to help the destitute���why i.s it that  our cry of help was unheeded, and no  large amount given by Mr. Pullman or his  company?.  "Why did he permit one of his officials  to publish a statement that there was no  destitution in Pullman, and that there  could not be as long as $720,000 was deposited in the bank to the credit of the  laboring men���a statement I have reason  to believe was in effect false.and misleading?  "Why does not Mr. Pullman do something for the moral and educational development of this place? AVhy does he  extort such exorbitant rents from the  churches of this community? Why does  he not assist'the ���Young 'Men's Christian  Association just a little? Why does he  not give us an emergency hospital, of  which we stand so much in need? And  last, not least, why, let me ask, does he  not. as a "man of flesh and blood like ourselves, bring himself into a little closer  contact with public life of our town, cheer  his employes with his presence, and allow  the calloused hand of labor occasionally  to grasp the gentle 'hand of the man who  professes to be so intensely interested in  our welfare?  "Never until George Pullman can give  it satisfactory answer to these questions  will I account him a -benefactor to his-  race, a lover of his kind, a philanthropist,  or one who litis done anything for posterity which will cause mankind, when his  dust slumbers beneath the sod, to rise up  and call him blessed,  "Thou eternal God, what poison has  crept into human nature and the spirit of  true democratic simplicity that can cause  this man, who himself was once a poor  mechanic tit the bench, but who is now a  pampered millionaire, intrenched behind  his gold, to deny these just requests of  those whose hands have made him rich,  and who heeds not the tears of wives and  children who have been simply existing  upon the crumbs that fell from the rich  man's table?  "I am told that the average wages paid  by the company are $1.87 a day. I doubt  it much. It is claimed that the men arc  not receiving'starvation wages.' J know  many of which this is true, but they are  the exception and not the rule. I know  a man who has- had, after paying $11.50  rent for four small rooms and 71 cents for  water rent, but 7(> cents a day left to feed  and clothe his wife and children. When  we remember that this is an average case,  that it is on the basis of full time, then,  in the name of all that is just and right, I  say God help that man if his dependents  be many or if sickness invades his home.  And I cry 'shame' upon the rich corporation that dares to insult the American  workingman with such a wage as that.  No, no; it is wrong���eternally wrong?  "It is man's lot to labor, and the chimneys of great factories rise like the steeples of churches and call us to the. battle of  ���life. Jittt all these temples of labor will  be turned into the slaughter houses of  anarchy and the music of hammer and  anvil become discordant with the raging  elements of infuriated conflicts if, in the  days to come, justice is not meted out to  the laborer and capital ceases to be  tyrannical.  "The great trouble with this whole  Pullman system is that it is not what it is  pretended to be. To a casual visitor it is  a veritable paradise, but it is a hollow  mockery, a sham, an institution girdled  with red tape, and as a solution to the  labor problem most unsatisfactory.  "The great trouble with the town of  Pullman, viewed from the standpoint of  tin industrial experiment, is that its deli-  rieuces overbalance all its beauties. It is  the most un-American town in till America. It belongs to the map of lOurope. It  is a civilized relic of old world serfdom.  Today we behold the lamentable and logical outcome of the whole system.  "I am with you to the end." he said in  closing. "I hope you will get your just  demands. I shall always in the future  count it its the proudest moment of my  life that I could say a word of comfort at  this crisis and take my stand beside you  in this great and apparently unequal contest."   .mil rtq.i,.man's statk.mknt.  The employes of the car works of Pullman's Palace Car Company tit Pullman,  Illinois, struck May llth, and the shops  have been closed'until further notice.  According to the National Car Builder,  the men demanded the restoration of the  rates of pay for piecework to what these  had been previous to the reduction made  on account of the falling off of business.  A day or two before the strike president  Pullman personally addressed a gathering  of the men and gave them some plain  statements of the conditions which made  low wages for the present a necessity. At  the commencement of the depression last  year tin,' company employed at Pullman  .ISIO men and paid out in wages there  $tf()r>,0(H) ti month. Negotiations that were  then pending for new work were stopped,  orders were canceled, and it became necessary to lay oil' a large number of men in  every department, so that by the first of  November, 1893, there were only about  2000 inen in all departments, or a little  over one-third of the normal number.  In the effort to keep the shops running  and the workmen employed the company  made lower bids than were ever before  known, and by this means secured work-  enough to, increase the force from 2000 to  4300 men, which was the number employed  at the time of tht strike. This was done  by the company eliminating from its estimates the use of capital and machinery,  and in many instances going below that  and taking work at a considerable loss;  as much in one particular case as $12 per  car and in another $7!) per car. The Detroit shops of the company were closed in  order to provide work for the men at  Pullman, and $100,000 was spent since last  August in carrying out a system of improvements in the town, which gave work  to many.   TROUBLE   IN   THE   CCEUR   D'ALENES.  TRUSTS   AND   STRIKES.  The Particulars of the Killing of John Knee-  bone.  Wallace  Miner  7th:    "The facts connected with the murder of John Kneebone.  as far as can be ascertained, are these:  Between 3 and -I o'clock in the afternoon,  about forty masked men came into Gem  from the direction of Burke.   Their masks  were rudely made of burlap, pockethand-  kerchiefs, etc., and it is said that some of  them  simply  had   their  faces  blacked.  Their coats were turned inside out and  they were otherwise disguised by changes  in their apparel.   Each one carried a rifle  or a shotgun.    They marched right down  the railroad track and crossed over to the  Gem mill, in plain view of all who were  out on the street.   Some of them entered  the mill, subsequently all or a portion of  them went up towards the middle tunnel.  As they approached each man assumed an  attitude   of   preparation,   carrying   his  weapon   for   instant service.   Kneebone  was at work in the blacksmith shop and  so   stealthy had   been   their movements  that they were close upon him before he  observed them.   The instant that he saw  them, knowing that they had been threatening  him   for  some weeks,  he sprang  through the open window and started to  run.   He did not get fifty feet away from  the shop, however, before two shots were  lired in quick  succession and he rolled  down the dump, a distance of thirty feet,  stone dead.    The foremost man in  the  group, and one of the men who fired at  him, said, "Well, we've got one of them."  They next inquired of the whereabouts of  Docrogers, and returned to the lower tunnel,  where  superintendent K. K. Neill,  foreman W..M. Crummer, Frank Higgius,  and Charles West were taken captive and  marched  up the railroad track by their  masked captors, followed by a crowd of  men and boys.   The wires had been cut  both above and below Gem, which plainly  indicated the determination of the men  who had undertaken the outrage.  "An hour or so after the murder was  committed manager A. B.Campbell turned  over the horse which he rode up to Gem  to deputy sheriff Kennedy and he. in company, with Messrs. Ilainmell and Porter,  started in the direction that .superintendent Neill and the other men had been  driven. They passed through Burke, on  past the Poormau power house over the  Thompson Falls trail. AVhon about five  miles above Jiurkes, J. M. Porter, who was  riding several hundred feet ahead of the  others, was suddenly stopped by tt couple  of masked men and asked to go back. He  did not comply promptly with this request and during the few moments that  he engaged them in conversation the  deputies rode up. when the fellows immediately dodged into the brush and ran  as last tis their legs could carry them.  Altogether they saw five of them who  were evidently returning to the settlements in Canyon creek. This occurred  about dusk. Several miles further on  they came across Neill and the others,  where they had built, a fin; and gone into  camp for the night. It is needless losay  that there were mutual expressions of  pleasure at the meeting on both sides.  The deputies went into camp with them,  and there they all ictnaiucd for several  hours, when the deputies find R. K. Neill  returned and went over to Murray, while  Crummer find the others went over to  Thompson Kalis, preferring to get out of  the country by that route. The deputies  and Mr. Neill arrived at Murray at 0  o'clock on the morning of the It It and I Informer came over to Wallace! during the  forenoon. Mr. Neill remained in .Murray.  ".Judge Angel impanelled a coroner's  jury at Gem on Tuesday evening,  body was brought down the hill tint  amiucd and a preliminary inquest  hold. I'nder the circumstances it  deemed best, in order to secure till  evidence that could be offered, to adjourn  the inquest until today. As none of the  men were recognized, the result of the  verdict may be guessed. Kneebone was  shot but once. The course! of the bullet  was singular. It entered at the; point of  the left shoulder blade ami emerged at  the mouth, knocking out two of flic lower  front teeth. The remains were brought  down to the Worstell undertaking rooms  on Wednesday,"  The  ox-  wjis  was  the  Will the Ultimate Result be War Between  Capital and Labor. '  Aggressive wars waged solely for territorial aggrandizement have almost passed  into universal disrepute. International  quarrels have been submitted to arbitration; and even an unsatisfactory decision  hits been accepted in preference to war.  Prophetic optimists predict that the niil-  lenium of peace is very near; but a, dark  war cloud looms threatingly across the  future. That portent is the social war  between capital and labor. The laissez-  faire doctrine of the old school of political,  economists has been found inadequate.  Unless the 'public- consents, on   the one  hand, to be plundered by rapacious capitalists, combining in close ranks to compel unorganized, often careless consumers,  to submit to extortion, and, on the other  hand, to endure great losses from selfish  labor unions, determined to force a  neutral party to side with their cause���  unless the public is willing to permit an  ever recurring internecine war, legislative  action becomes imperative.  Labor  stands arrayed against capital.  Such a condition is unnatural; for labor  and capital are completely dependent on  each other.    What has caused  this disruption?   The   simple answer  is selfishness; boundless, lawless selfishness, that  'leaps-far beyond the limiting necessities  of  self-preservation.    A  decision   as to  which of  the   two is  the   more   selfish  would probably result  from the mind's  ���pre-existing.prejudice.   The laborer may  quit work if he wishes,  may   persuade  other men to do likewise, by all  lawful  means   may induce  his  employer to increase wages, to do all this he has an absolute right.   The moment, however, that  in order to gain his end he curtails other  men's freedom, or compels another to lose  a place, or prevents another taking a situation, or coerces an employer as to the  disposing of that employer's capital���that  moment he becomes as tyrannical us'the  tyranny he is attacking.    Does  not the  workingman possess the ballot?   Let him  use   that.    Let  him   use  constitutional  means   to  effect what   is adjudged  the  highest   good  for   the greatest number.  Can any sane  person doubt that if the  laboring classes chose, they could regulate  the power that permits combines to exist?  When committing unlawful deeds, when  injuring a neutral public, when doing, in  blind   passion,  what   in   calm   moments  .will cause regret, the laborer is his own  worst enemy to his own cherished cause.  The   estimated   loss  to   proprietors and  workers,  caused   by the recent   miners'  strike, was $20,01)0,000.   The strike is acknowledged to have been a failure.   That  it was brought on at a most inopportune  time is now confessed.    That the leaders,  declaring the strike, were forced to surrender, because they could no longer control the bloodthirsty lawlessness of fanatics  in their organizations,  has been asserted by themselves.   The loss.'entailed  by  the present Pullman strike,  will  be  inestimable.   The militia is ordered  out  and is overpowered.   Thousands of union  men,  having  no  interest  in   this strike,  have been compelled to stop work;   tuiel  this causes untold suffering and want in  their families.     At  any   moment,  some  misguided,   infuriated    man   may   perpetrate   ti   revengeful   crime,   that   will  make the world hate the laborer's cause.  At such   times,  as   during   the   present  strike,  the traveling public   is veriably  resting on thin lava, beneath which are  most   disastrous    possibilities.    At    the  same time, we must remember that the  greatest reforms have originated, not with  the capitalist, but with the laborer.    We  must remember   that  there is so  much  right in   his   cause,   the; workingman  is  doubly strong in  that right.   The;  more  pity   that   unlawful   or  criminal   deeds  sometimes blot and disgrace a righteous  cause!  So much for labor, what about capital,  and that monster of avaricious greed, the  combine or trust? Capital is perfectly  legitimate in itself: that is, unless we intend to make the present century blood-  red with slaughter of the inherited progeny of ancient sins. But, when in order  to increase it sufficiency into more than  enough, capitalists combine; into what is  known as a trust, we must remember,  where the capitalist seeks to gormandize,  to stuff himself with the "unearned increment," the laborer lights for necessity,  for daily bread. No one denies a man's  right to use his own money as he pleases,  just in as far its he himself is concerned;  but when he and his brother capitalists  forge their bullion into chains, with which  to bind find cripple; the commercial world,  to enslave the poor and to grip the; public,  then there is tin encroachment on the i  liberty of other classes, and it is time; for j  the people: to command through legislative voice-, "Halt!" If labor has the majority of votes, capital has thai which  corrupts the voter and makes the Jaw's  evasion easy. The same win; I lint ticked  fin account of the Pullman strike, told of  a trust that had bought all the match factories of lOtirope and America. The same  dispalchcs that related the miners  also made public the scandalous New  York sugar .trusts''manipulations to corrupt the governing body. So constantly  are these two disturbers of a long suffering public, strikes and trusts,-apparently  connected. If the .relation be not one of  cause and effect, then there is an underlying common principle, and that principle  is selfishness.  What is the remedy? Will the third  report of the Imperial Labor Commission,  advising the incorporation of labor unions  to sue and to be sued, not increase the evil  by causing perpetual litigations? This,  fit least, is-certainly known. Strikes and  trusts cannot be allowed to boa law.unto  themselves much longer. A self-effected,  lawful settlement is not being reached.  Laissez-faire is no longer a remedy.  A   MISCHEVIOUS   SYSTEM.  People Have Gone Mad on the Subject of too  Much Credit.  Under the heading, of  "What is  the  Matter....With   Hannah?"   the,"Winnipeg  Commercial has been discussing the present stringent find otherwise unsatisfactory state'of trade among-country merchants," and is satisfied that in the field of  freight rates no direct cause can be found,  in its last issue it declares that the main  cause of all  the trouble is  the reckless  system of credit which..has been the custom throughout the country.'-. It goes on  to say that phe offers made by.Manitoba-  merchants of 10 per cent discount for cash  and in not a few instances as much as .15  per cent, is a loud protest against credit  as  at������ present given,  for no -mercantile  profits fit present will stand a shave of 15  percent for cash.  Moreover, recent legislation   has   placed    the    farmers   even  further beyond the reach of the retailers'  collectors, find there never was more need  for fi convention of-retail merchants to  discuss  the situation than there is now.  It is added  that in almost every case of  insolvency reported the grefit shrinkage  is in  the book debts,   which   have been  found in many cases to be valueless.    Indeed, inquiry has shown that while insolvent's assets on their shelves have been  found to be worth on the average (it) cents  on the dollar, those in the books do not-  average 15 cents.    It is siiid that the country merchant has fill along been the unsecured creditor of the farmer, and it is  hard  to see how he can devise a system  which will secure him.    While he lms been  giving credit without security, the mortgage company, the farm machinery 'agent,  and  the local money lender, as  well as  other shrewd operators, have been securing liens find mortgages on all the farmer  possesses."  In British Columbia most of the merchants have not been placed under the  same conditions as their brethren in Manitoba, where the dependence lifts practi- j  cally been on the one crop, still they have i  gone mad on the subject of credit find  both in town and country credit has been  given to a degree which inquiry into the  individual cases would by no means warrant. Krequently entreaties to pay have  been of no avail, while threats of legal  action have been no better, and at the  present time we learn that the merchants'  books are full of good, bad. and indifferent accounts, upon which in the meantime  it is hard to realize anything.  Merchants will do well to turn over a  new leaf in this particular by materially  restricting, if not doing away with, existing line.;s of e-redit. making their debtors  do something in the way of paying instalments on old accounts and paying as they  go for the fill tire. This would be found  more satisfactory for all parties. 11 might  fit first be somewhat difficult to carry out  this idea, but once inaugurated it could  for the better.

About forty aids out   of  five  hundred ,  stepped out   and  joined  the   lender.    The '  general and his aids held a'council, and  then proceeded to examine the circle of  molasses. 'Certain portions of it seemed  to be assigned to the different ants, and  each selected unerringly the points in the  section under his charge where the stream  of molasses was narrowest. Then the  leader made his tour of inspection. The  order to march was given and the ants  all made their way to a hole in the wall,  at which the plastering was loose. Here  they broke ranks, and set about carrying  pieces of-plaster .to the place in the molasses which had been agreed upon as the  narrowest.

Joshua    Davies,   one   of   the   Victoria  stockholders in the Pilot Hay smelter company, was in  Nelson on .Monday. He looked over towards "Hogus-  to\vn"and sighed on not seeing the wharf that cost him  Soli'K'.[.">. Mr. Davies has put many good dollars into  West Kootenay, and he hopes to gel a few of Ihein hack  once the smeller is in operation.  The .Miner says that although the Pilot  Bay smelter company is largely owned in.the t'niicd  States, its policy will be essentially Hritish Columbian m  all its relations. That, is about as meaningless as one of  George Owen Buchanan's speeches.  Fred Hume and 11.  13.  Kerr addressed  tlie electors at Aiiisworth on Friday night. They were  materially assisted by G. 0. Buchanan and one of his  supporters from Kaslo. The feeling after the meeting  was that if .Mr. Buchanan would choke oil a few of the  dampliool .supporters he has at Kaslo, his vole might  reach respectable proportions.  The office of The Mall Mines, Limited.  in London, Kngland, has been removed from III Wind  I'A-change, Coleman street, to the Leadenhall buildings,  I Leadenhall street, F.

John W. Tolson claims that he has in  his garden at Nelson "Bridesmaid," "Duke of Con-  naught," and "Queen Natalie of Soma" roses that, c.in-  not be -equalled for their beauly of form, size, and color.  A bush fire destroyed all the lumber  and supplies on the site of the concentrator below Three  Forks. It is also reported that Hughes's headquarters  camp near Bear Lake was destroyed by tire.

Of course the outside world had to be in  at the Cherokee payment, which began at  Tahlequah,   the  capital of the Cherokee  nation, about a month ago.   The.country  at large, was represented in a rather shady  nay,   for  some   enterprising  gentlemen  went there with a big wad of counterfeit  money, intent on uaiming it oil'on the unwary Cherokee.   So  far they have succeeded in getting very little of it in circulation, for they are beingclosely watched.  This payment of $(},~>()(),(X)() is the largest  cash   payment   ever   made   to   any   one  people at one time so far as history shows.  Of this a mount over $1,(i()(),()0() now reposes  in the  treasurer's oflice in  the Cherokee  state house at Tahletpiah.   One hundred  members of the Cherokee Light Guards,  all of them veterans in the service, and  the surest shots in the nation, patrol the  grounds, the upper and lower corridors of  the state house, and the principal streets  of the town.    If the .Dalton gang or any  other gang were to attempt to carry oil'  this treasure, they would be riddled with  bullets before they got half way through  their job.    None but persons of Cherokee  blood are allowed in the state house while  the payment is going on.    ft very precaution has been taken by the authorities to  prevent a raid, which, if successful, would  claim as its booty the greatest swag ever  captured by any band of bandits since the  days of Robin Hood.  At 9 o'clock each morning the payment  begins. Tahletpiah is a town of less than  2000 people, anil it has no big hotels, and  consequently its accommodations for  strangers are decidedly limited.  | i'With the first peep of dawn came the  Cherokees bent upon seeing their precious  per capita. It is a curious throng. There  are pretty young Cherokee girls hardly  in their teens, who smile bashfully upon  big-footed, slouch-hatted young fellows  with huge curt ridge belts and big guns in  their hip pockets. There nre old dames,  whose gri/./led features show them to  have long ago passed the threescore and  ten years limit. There are men equally  as old. and all ages are represented, down  to the infant-, ftvery infant, by the way.  draws its per capita. Ss^m.IW,' exact \y as  much as the man or woman ninety years  its senior. It is said that there have been  f)00 Cherokee babies born within the last  four months.   The Cherokee is no fool.  At 9 o'clock a dark-featured guard, carelessly carrying a rille across his shoulder,  strolls down to the rope that shuts out,  the throng, and picks out ten of the Chcrokees whom he escorts into the state  house. The districts that tire being paid  off a re t hcTalilcquali and the Going Snake  district, and there are two sets of desks  for each district,. Accordingly, the Chcrokees are divided into two sect ions as they  pass into the room, and paid oil'. The  method of paying is very simple. The applicant goes in and is asked his or her district. Going Snake is the reply. What  name*'-' John I'luobclly. The Going Snake  rolls are rd'cnvd to. and if John Hlue-  belly' name i.i found  money, toget her with  wife a nd also l hat, of i\  the couple appearing,  west door of the state  at (lie cast. door.  Here he is supposed to pass through a  are stationed collectors for the various  firms who have debtors among the Chero-  kees. These firms erected a wooden passageway, witJi narrow stalls for their collectors, through which it was intended to  send the Cherokees after they had secured  their money, but the indignant Indians  objected to being treated like a.lot of cattle and tore down the wooden work. The  collectors have their bills all made out,  and it is a fact that as each Indian passes  the gauntlet lie or she is recognized by  the collectors, who possess wonderful  memory.  One man, John Thompson of Tahlequah,  a general merchant, has the sum of $2.r>0-,  000 loaned out among the Cherokees, hav-,  ing been selling goods to them on credit  for the last two years', on the strength of  this payment, lie frankly admits that ho  has charged such enormous sums for these  goods sold the Indians that he can afford  to lose 25 per cent of all that is owed him  and still make a handsome-profit, but the  prospect is that'he will lose no such per  cent. Most'of the Cherokees pay .up as  they pass the collectors.  There are some amusing incidents. A  Cherokee who proposed to/pay his debts  when he pleased would dodge under the  ropes and thus escape",.the collectors.  Another who owed a. merchant $210.10  threw the collector a. $10 note as he passed  along and said: "Not another d~d cent  until I get ready." A tired looking woman came out clutching $700 in bills;  there was a smile on her dark face at the  start. She was headed off by a collector,  who relieved her of a good many of her  bills and gave her a receipt. Collector  after collector pounced upon her, and,  when she got to the end of the line, every  cent of her iuoney was gone, so was the  smile. The woman went away, sobbing  bitterly. She was a full-blood, and all  merchants here will tell you that the  full-bloods will pay their debts promptly  and fully. Not so with the half-breeds.  Very often the white blood carries the  taint of dishonesty with-it. The simoii  pure Indian doesn't know what it means  to be crooked.  Old John Ross was the first to draw his  money. Ross is a Presbyterian .preacher,  and is a son of chief John Ross, who was  for forty-one years at the head of the  Cherokee nation. Preacher Ross put his  ���greenbacks in his pocket and walked off  smiling. He had no debts to pay and  consequently no collectors to face. After  him came others and when noon arrived  seventy persons-had been paid off. At 2  o'clock the payment commenced again  and by nightfall about $75,000 had been  disbursed.  It is expected that $1,(100,000 will be paid  out before the expiration of the twelve  days allotted to Tahlequah. After that  the treasurer will move on to the other  paying _points in the Territory, and his  work will be completed about September  1st.  Tahlequah is full'of fakirs, of course,  white fakirs bent on securing poor Lo's  money. All classes, from the gambler to  the cheap John dry goods man with a  shady stock, have flocked here from all  quarters of the country. There are people  here who are making the Cherokee Rome  howl with steaiii merry-go-rounds. There  are several, and they are doing a tremendous business. It is amusing to see the  Indians patronizing this institution.  Women and old men areas much delighted  with it as the youngsters, and the girls  hop upon the horses and ride them with  as much ease as they ride their own barebacked ponies, and with infinitely more  delight. Speaking of ponies reminds one  that there are over 1000 horses brought  hereby traders from all over the southwest who are not averse to turning an  honest dollar and occasionally a dishonest  one. The Indians all have horses. Several  firms a-re here selling firearms. The  Cherokee loves his Winchester as well as  he does his squaw, mayhap a little better, and so it goes.  ftvery one is after the Cherokee money.  The gamblers are having a hard time of  it. Chief Harris and the Federal authorities are sitting down on them hard, and  so far they have had to operate very  quietly, ftven the cane-rack men and the  nickle-in-the-slot men are under the genera. I ban. Xo liquor is being sold openly  here, of course, though much is being disposed of quietly. Jamaeia ginger is being  sold quietly at the rate of 50 cents for a  two-ounce bottle worth S cents. This fires  up the Indian much more rapidly than  whiskey. It fairly drives him insane for  the time being. Fire-water is and will  ever be the bane of the Indian. If there  is any trouble during the payment,  whiskey and Jamaica ginger will be the  cause thereof, so say those who are posted.  WARRING   OVER   RELIGION.  Sad Ending of a Fourth of July Celebration  at Butte.  Two thousand men celebrated the one  hundred and eighteenth anniversary of  American independence at Butte, Montana, by becoming opposing'factions of  wild fanatics, and spent the day disputing  regarding religion, fighting, shooting, and  disgracing the city.  Some time last August a lodge of the  society known as the A. P. A. was organized in that city. It developed with marvelous rapidity, and within a few months  there were several lodges in Silver Bow  county and the membership had reached  a total of more than 2000. The organization was understood to be opposed to  Catholics, and naturally an intensely bitter feeling developed among Catholics  against the association, yet nothing had  occurred to make the smouldering fight a  public one. Cat holies met on corners and  denounced the A. P. A. and members of  the hitter organization met and denounced  the Catholics. But beyond possibly a few  tilts the men of opposing views did not  get together.  ftverybody in Butte knew of the organization's existence, everyone knew of the  strained feeling between two great bodies  of men in the community, everybody  knew that only a 'spark was needed in  some evil hour to set the city in a turmoil  and to cause sorrow in many a home.  The young organization figured prominently,in the school election, and was a  strong factor in the spring municipal'election. But it acted secretly, and there was  nothing to bring into publicity the acts of  the-organization. In a community such  as Butte it was recognized by all the newspapers as: safer antl wiser that brewing  trouble should not be hastened by newspaper talk. So while the feeling was daily  becoming   intensified,   the    newspapers  made no mention of it, and wise citizens  generally did their utinos . ineffectual  though it was, to allay the bitterness of  the feeling.  'The spark was first fanned to flame by  Simon HauswirHi, who conducts a saloon  on West Broadway. In making'his decorations for the Fourth of July, the letters "A. P. A." formed of red, white, and  blue bunting, were placed in the windows  of his saloon. The sign had been noticed  early in the evening Of the 3rd, and caused  considerable comment. Some time during  the night, a stick of giant powder was exploded under the sidewalk in front of the  saloon, the explosion tearing up the side  walk and shattering the windows of the  building. A little after 2 o'clock on the  Fourth, William Page, at' one time the  champion driller of the world, entered  Hauswirth's saloon and bought a drink.  In passing out he noticed the shattered  windows and inquired how it happened.  He was informed that it was the work of  some blankety blanked papist. -The answer incensed Page, and a fight ensued, in  which pistols were fired. The firing collected a crowd, and before it could be dispersed ��� the fire department and militia  lad to be called out. The result was the  killing of a special policeman named Daly  and the wounding of several others.  ��  Moonlight Excursion  Benefit of the Public School.
