SECOND  YEAR.-NO. 2fl.  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,   MAY  IU,   1894-.  ONE  DOLLAR A YEAR.  VIEWS   OF   A   MINE   MANAGER.  Wlio Believes in Developing a Property Before Shipping Ore.  Nnw Di'.NVi'JK. May 1-1 tli.  Byron White was in New Denver last  "Wedneselay. Vancouver, in his opinion,  i.s going to be the great city of British  Columbia. ile has sottletl his family  there. West Kootenay, he said, was a  hard country to make a permanent home  in at present. It is very likely, however,  that ho will build a cottage at New Denver and spend a few months here every  .summer witli his wife and family. He  expects to bo in West Ivootenay hi nisei J'  most of the time as soon as the railroad  gets in. "1 think," he remarked, '.'that  we have seen our dullest times in West  Kootenay. This camp litis been opened  up in the face of a panic antl heavy fall in  silver. It is a wonder to me that any men  are working in the camp tit all." What  the conip will be in good times is to be inferred. iNew Denver, Mr. White considers,  is all right. '"People," ho says, "'will be  here and do business here, and it cannot  be long before wc get a bank in here.  ; Take myself for instance. Living at  at Vancouver, if 1 want to do business  with the bank I have got to go through  the mountains to Ivaslo ttnd down to Nelson. An interview with the bank costs  me fifty dollars at the very least."  Questioned as to some of the reports  flying about regarding a shortage of ore  in some of the; best known mines, Mr.  White said : '" I tlont see what else could  be expected. If you eiig out every pound  of ore in sight you soon won't have any.  Prospects have got to be developed. People have accused me of working a hardship em the country because I never  shipped any- ore from tlie Slocan Star.  1 believe the Star in the shape it is today  i.s tiering as -much for the camp as any  other property. If I had sacked.; ore last  summer and shipped it, the chances tire I  would have nothing to show now but a  smelter certificate and a hole in the  ground. I must say I believe in 'development. Besides, I am a speculator. Anil  I believe the price of ore is going to go  up. Hvery cent.thatsilver goes up means  about $1000 to ine on that lot. of ore at  Three Forks.-"  What dei you figure that ore you have  stored at Three Forks te> be worth nett?  '" Well" said Mr. White" allowing about  %S0 a ton for 'freight and treatment, the  ore is worth between $00,000 and $70,000."  Back From Big Bend.  William  llennessy and M. 11. Hubbard  returned  from  a.trip  to  the Big   Bend  country on Tuesday.    They report it nse-  " less for prospectors to go into that section  earlier than July 1st, as the snow is yet  very deep in the mountains. The Consolation claim on French creek is paying  well. The pay gravel is not more than 0  inches, but the bed-rock is worked to a  depth'of 2A feet, it being coarse slate. The  face is about 30 feet in width, and the  dirt is run some 000 feet and hoisted'50  feet to the surface. It will, however,  soon be hoisted through another shaft  nearer the face,' and a considerable saving  will be made iu labor. The 'dirt pays  about $30 to  the yard, anel the dust is  "worth' $18.75. an ounce in San Francisco.  Several claims will be worked on McCulloch creek. Mr. Hennessy and Thomas  Lidster have both become iuteresteel in.  claims on that creek. A party is at work  on ground four miles from the, mouth of  Carnes creek and reported taking out good  pay. The quartz; ledges in the Big Bend  are from It) to 20 inches wirle, and it is  claimed the ore runs from $30 to $50 in  gold to the ton. John Boyd has bonded a  claim located about ten miles up Carnes  creek, and is now cutting a trail to it.  The vein is said to be 0 feet wide, and in  slate, granite, and porphyry. The ore  runs from $10 to $-10 in gold.  Will Give the Last Chance Another Trial.  The owners of the Last Chance claim on  McCulloch creek, in the Big Bend country, although they have spent $22,000 in  running two tunnels that did nett strike  bedrock, have still faith in the ground.  One tunnel is in 1000 feet anel the other in  1500. The lease expires in July, but it will  be renewed. The; owners tire Josiah  Fletcher, T. .1. Leiitlrtmi, G. C. Tunstall,  Jr., W. M. Brown, William McKen/.ie,  John Bell, Thomas Ardeil, Alex Bilslantl,  and John Sanderson. The latter left Nelson this week for the claim, tint! he will  probably have five others at work with  iiini.    Larger Than Ever Before.  Phil Aspinwall i.s up from Trail Creek  district. He reports that the force em the  Le Roi is now larger than ever before, anel  that while the men are iiot working by  the day, they are making $3.50aelay on  contract work. Trail Creek is to be a  $3.50 camp. "Tom" Feehan is now foreman on the Josie.  The Richest Yet Shipped.  J. G. McGuiganof the Noble Five mines,  in Slocan district, returned today from  Omaha., where he toe>k 51 terns of high-  grade ore. The returns received go te>  show that the eire was the richest yet  shipped in large quantity from the Slocan  country. It ran 510 ounces silver and 51  per cent lead.   Mining News from the Line.  Northport News, 17th:    "The Columbia  Consolidated Placer Mining Company has  transferred to Parker 6c Leavenworth of  Seattle, the agents of tin eastern syndi- |  cate, its $125,000 iu treasury stock, iii con- '  sideration of which Parker 6c Leavenworth have contracted to construct tin  ample canal, starting at the forks of Cedar  creek, three miles southeast of AVaneta,  ami to extend far enough southwest to  supply sufficient water to enable the Columbia company to thoroughly work its  800 acres of laud which hug the Pend d'-  Oriolle and Columbia' rivers, it i.s esti-  mateel by the company's engineer that the  canal, pipe, etc., will cost $35,000. . Colonel Peyton informed the Northport Lumber Company this week that he would  shortly need ti largo bill of lumber, as he  iutcncled to erect several buildings at the  Le B.oi mine, in Trail Creek district. .  James Hays anel Anthony Nelson left on  Saturday for Upper Arrow lake, te> locate  a tin mine which Mr. Hays discovered  about two years ago. At'the time he  discovered it snow wsis falling and he was  .afraid he woultl be snowed in, and last  season ho had no opportunity to get there.  If the ore proves to be what Mr. Mays believes, it will be the greatest discovery  ever made in British Columbia."  FROM   CARIBOO.  The Outlook   not  at   all   Px-omising  for  That  Section of the Province.  A resident of Nelson  has received   the  following summing up of the outlook for  Cariboo.     Tho    letter   is   dated    Bark-  erville, April 20th.    Jt says:    "'At present  the outlook is very blue.   The place  has  grown from bad  to worse ever since you  left.   As  far as a man looking for work  goes, it is almost out of the question, as  no drifting claims of any account are at  work now.   The principal ������'mining is hydraulic,  and  very  little of that.   There  are more men here now than get employment: but rumor has  it that  we are to  have a. boom  in  tlie near future.    A. D.  Whittier has a lease of .all'the'vacant,  ground on Williams creek, and the ground  held as  real  estate  he has bonded.    He  proposes  to .work  the creek from' top to  bottom by a machine called a hydraulic  jet.   Slough creek is 'also held by a company of Americans.    They are just about  ready to try and sink their ���shaft.    Law,  late commissioner at  the World's  Fair,  has a scheme on foot to. prospect Willow  river.:; below 'Mosquito creek.    He is going  to bore with some kind of an augur, and  has the old Lowhee engine on the ground.  J. Allen and  Frank   Petries  think   they  .have: found  a   continuation of   the   old  Heron  lead on. Grouse creek.    Tliey run  a tunnel below where the'pay-streak was  lost and sunk a blind shaft.   They got six  ounces out t)f the shaft.    Quite a number  of 10-mile leases have been applied for on  Willow, Goat,  and Smoky, as well as on  the  Fraser.   There  are  no new strikes.  Iiobson, at the Forks of Quesnelle, is going in to hydraulic miningextensively, but  he   only   pays   about $.10 a  mouth   and  board.    George Isaac and Arthur Johnson  a.nd another man are on Stuart's creek  prospecting.   Arnold   Wilson is working  for Flynn on Mosquito creek.   John AVil-  son is back on Lightning- creek prospecting on the. bench opposite the . Costello.  Barkerville   is   almost   deserted;   about  twenty iu tlio town now, all told."  Keep Pegging Away on Goat River.  While little is heard of the Goat river  and Duck creek camps, the boys who  have interests there keep pegging away.  Frank Fitch, Jack O'Neil, and John Fritch  have bonded the President claim to a  ..Minneapolis conipany, and Dr. Schroeder,  the company's representative, after looking at the property, is wolf satisfied with  it. In running a tunnel last winter two  veins were crosscut, the ore from which  runs 51 per cent copper and .15 in gold.  The tunnel is in 180 feet. A tunnel i.s also  being run on an adjoining claim called the  Selkirk, which shows a o-foot vein on the  surface. The ore from the Selkirk is galena tind carries about 05 ounces silver.  Parties who own a claim five miles up  Goat river have called for tenders for running a 75-foot tunnel. When taking iu a  party on Tuesday te) look tit some properties, Jack O'Neil lost two horses in crossing Goat river. At present, there is little  difficulty in getting to either camp, as the  steamer Nelson runs within a mile e>r two  of many of the claims, both going to aud  coming from.Bonner's Ferry.  A Backward Spring.  John McDonald, who is down from Toad  mountain, says  this  spring is  the  most  backward he has witnessed since going to  the Silver King,"six years ago.   The snow  is still fully eight feet iu depth at the  mine, anel apparently is settling but little.  The nights tire cold, and the days are not  warm enough to thaw the crust formed  at night. The wagon road is bare as far  up as the first turn. Snow is being  shoveled off the proposed site for the  plant that is ne>w lying at the C. 6c K.  depot.   Fifty-five men are employed.  "Will Make Headquarters at a Mine.  George \V. Hughes will, for a time, make  his headquarters at the Mtmuta.iii Chief  mine, which is about two miles form  New Denver. When entt tit Spokane last  week lit. purchased a small Pelton wheel,  which will be used to force air through  the workings of the mine, foul air being  tit times troublesome.  A Gold Mill Started Up.  The 10-sta.inp mill em the Poorman mine  em Kagle creek, six miles southwest of  Nelson, was started up on Frielay, anel  will be run as long as the wafer supply  lasts. Ore is being stoped from both the  north and south drifts. Twelve men are  employed.  VOTERS'   LIST.52N0RTH   RIDING.

More exaggerated statements have been  sent out from Kaslo than from all other  towns in Kootenay combined. The newspaper correspondence i'rom that place  seldom contains facts, and i.s always  highly colored. The following is a fair  sample of the "rot" that is being sent out  in regard to the contest for member of  the legislativeassembly. It is taken i'rom  the Vancouver World of the 7th:  "The government candidate will divide  the vote in Nelson, while in Kaslo, his  home, Mr. Biiclutnan will poll a solid one.  This he will also do-.in Denver. _Na.ku.sp,  'Three Forks,'Carpenter creek, and ejther  places, in all of which exists a determination to stamp, out Jlttstonian dictation  and bossism. The oppositionists tire becoming fewer every hour. They are  realizing the fact that talk tind denunciation'of the government tire cheap, but  when facts are arrayed against bald, unsupported assertions, the hitter count for  nothing. The oppositionists, therefore,  tire becoming despondent and the ministerialists buoyant. The government is  becoming more popular daily, anel the fact  that its success in the forthcoming cemtest  is assured beyonel peradventure aelels to  its prestige in this section of the province!.  Nor is the fact overlooke.d that the opposition, as tt .party, is weak in brain power  and without a iiieleler, being, in fact,  nothing more or less than tin tiggregtitietii  of objoctionists anel obstructionists. The  government party in this rieling have  played ti waiting anel a, winning hand.  The utmost unanimity prevails in their  ranks, till aspirants having withdrawn in  favor of .Mr. Biichtuinii. whose stock now  can safely bo placet! 1~> to Mr. IItune's 2">.

'  Vividly Described in Enduring Prose by  Randall H. Kemp.  Poets and historians have never sounded  the praises of the prospector, either in  lasting verse or enduring prose. Except  an occasional sketch in some western local  ptiper, this class of hardy pioneers are  never given any attention by the literary  geniuses of the day.  There   are different kinds of  prospectors.    One kind   hang around recording  ofTices, keeping track of the records, wait-  I ing for an opportunity to '"jump" a claim  should the annual work not-be performed  thereon; and another kind loiter around,:  mining camps,   waiting to hear of some  rich strike, when they rush   to  the scene  and locate "extensions" or "side  liners."  The real, genuine prospector, however, is  the   one   who   shoulders   his  pack,  goes  forth into unexplored mountains, taking  till the chances, trusting to his knowledge  of formations and minerals anil to fate to  "'strike it rich."   iNo class of men is more  elesorving of credit i'or  the settlement of  the great west.  It wtis not the Golden Gtite harbor of  S;in Francisco, or the snow peaks of  Shasta, or the possibilities of fruit culture that caused California to be a great  state; the timber resources and beautiful  lakes did not attract pioneers to western  Nevada: the great reaches of pasture  lanels and the fertile valleys caused not  the first rush to .Montana: fdaho would  not be a state in the Union today were it  not for tlie prospector; British Columbia '  owes its standing almost entirely to the  men whosought for'mineral riches. Thus  we might go on indefinitely.  it takes :i man of -peculiar tetnperment  to follow this vocation, lie must be  physically able to endure hardships, and  have the stamina to bear disappointments. He must have a vivid imagination aiul quick mi nil. The possibility of  making a.'-'valuable.- eliscovery is ever  uppermost in his..thoughts.. The extremes  of fortune he is able to stand. Should  tlie blind goddess smile on him,'-and his  condition be changed from poverty to  . a II111 e n co,'. he 'ha s. a t tain eel..." li i.s a m b i li o i i ,  'arid ever afterwartls. as tt general rule,  makes an influential anel useful citi/.en.  .Should fate be'against him. he accepts  the decree philosophically,'.''and .when no  'longer able-to follow his chosen calling,  he retires, content to take"his"-chances  again .when an opportune time arrives.  Too many-who have not given this class  of iiomandic  pioneers a thought are in-  clineel   to   look   on  them   as   wandering  vagrants, with iio other ambition than to  tempt fate and  trust to the vagaries of  chance.     Investigation,     however,     will  nren'e that the grand army of prospectors  is made up from every walk- and avocation  in   life.     Many of  the  most   noted  colleges could find their alumni in their  ranks; all professions and trades'are icp-  resented.    Bough  of dress and not over  choice in the selection of words to express  tin   idea  is the average prospector  when  following his occupation.    Generosity  in  the broadest 'acceptation' of the term, tis a  rule, is oneof hi.s strongest virtues.    Not  only is the passing 'stranger "welcome to  the lion's share of his "grub" in camp or  cabin,'coarse'though  it may be, but the  same spirit of proeligiality governs him  when   in   town   or  in  city.     He.   apparently,' thinks  there are no 'refreshments  too  rich for the   blood of his accociates  when he i.s in funds.   l  Many old-time features of the Far West  are things of the past. The locomotive  anel the palae.e car have superceded the ox  team and the prairie schooner. The  swift.-inoving steamboat carries its passengers anel freight on the rivers and  hikes where less than a generation tigo  transit was by.birch-bark canoe anel eltig-  enit. Wondrous change is taking place  where once ;ul venttirotts spirits ttdvtinceel  when hungry for the western horizon.  The rapid strides of tin encroaching civil i/.atinu, pressing on with indelible footprints over the rough pathways heweel  out with his iron hand, tire gradually  narrowing the field of operations of the  prospector, ttnd. figuratively speaking, like  Alexander the Great, he; sighs for new  worlels lei e-onepior, but knows not where  U> go to find a virgin wilelerness in which  to elelvc anel search for the metallic treasures of the earth. In a h'W years, a  e-eaiplc t>f decade's tit best, the rising generation will only kneiw eif the prospector  through what he may re-ad in steiry rem-  nincse-cnt of sonic oltl-timer. whose only  themghts were'of the days of the past.

PLATFORM   OF  PRINCIPLES.  "AlWi'KIl  IIV   /)i:i.KGATKS  IS  COSVVSTIOS   OS   TIIK   ll'I'II  Ol'"  Al'ltll.,   1SII1.  Wlicreas. the men that iipbuiltthe Dominion of Canada  wore not of one naliviiy. and if a healthy patnotio  sentiment is to prevail, and only by the growth of  such a sentiment can Canada taken place among Kng-  lisli-spoaking nations, the rospon.-ibilities of government  must be enlriisted to men of known capacity, and not to  men who by aecident of birth imagine themselves rulers  bv Divine right.   Therefore, bo it resolved���   .  "First. That, we hold as reprehensible the practice of  appointing non-residents to ollicial positions in interior  districts, and we niaiiilaiii that all ollices, where practicable, should be lllleel b.v residents of the district wherein  the ollicial performs duty.  Second. Special and private legislation not only consumes too groat a part of the time that should be devoted  to tlio consideration of public measures, but il leads to  practices that Loud lo lesson eonlideiieo in lhe integrity  of the legislative a.-.-embly, and through it an insidious  poison is di.-.-ominated that iu time will find its way  throughout the whole organism of lhe body politic;  therefore, we favor the enactment of general laws that  will reduce to a minimum .-peciul legislation and do  away with private legislation altogether.  Third. The intero.-ts of the province were not  safe-guarelod iu the agreement between the government  and Hie Naku-p & Slocan Railway Company, unit Lhe  policy of the government in pledging Lhe credit of the  province, in order that speculative companies may prolit  thereby, is lo be condemned.  Fourth. After making provision for the payment of  the running expenses ol the government, expenditures  should he confined solely to the building and betterment  of wagon roaeis anil other works Unit are for the free use  and benelit of the public-at-largo, leaving to private enterprise the .construction unci .'operation of railways and  all other undertakings for tlie use of which the public  are rcei uircd to pay.  Fifth. The speedy adjustment of the differences between the province and the Dominion, to the end that  "the land within the railway bolt along tlio -Canadian  I'aoilic railway be thrown open to settlement under lhe  land laws of the province; the amendment of the Laud  Act so that it-, will be an equitable contract between  the province and the settlor, eliminating all discretionary  powers of the chief .commissioner of lands and works:  also .-unending it so as to permit the outright purchase of  small tracts in all iinsurveyed mountainous districts.  Sixth. The timber hinds of the province should bo  held in trust for the future needs of its people, and not  handed over, unrler long leases, to;:speculative mill owners as a saleable asset.  Seventh. The "development of the mining industry  should not bo hamporoel by legislation tlitit makes the  procurement of title to surface rights impossible: that  levies unequal taxation on working miners; and that  makes it dillicult to compeldelinquent co-owners to pavilion-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 wafer rights  for any'specific purpose ' may he obtained as readily as  such rights are now obtained for mining purposes under  the provisions of tlie Mineral Act.  Ninth. The establishment of a land registry for Kootenay district.  Tenth. Tho 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. rail way  construction and other works are compelled to submit,  through the issuance of tinie-cheeks. is alike discreditable to the men who prolit by such practices and to the  government that makes no etl'ortto render such practices  impossible. The issuance of noii-negotiablo time-checks,  should be made a punishable oH'cnce, and the issuance of  negotiable tiine-ohccks should only bo allowable under a  law that would safeguard the rights of tlio party to whom  they are issued. ^   Twelfth. Contractors and sub-contractors on railways  should havea means of gelling speedy redress from unjust classification and unfair measurement of work by  the appointment of an ollicial arbitrator who shall be  a practical engineer.    fhirtoontli. The government is to be condemned for  the passage of a redistribution act that is not uniform' in  its provisions, and by which representation is neither  based on population, voting strength, nor contributed  revenue.   Resolved, that the go\ eminent is to bo blaineel for  keeping in olliee in.West Kootenay a gold commissioner  ���who is not competent to perform the duties of the olliee.  Itesolveil, that lhe attention of the government.'is  called to the necessity of having paid constables stationed.  at .points on the International boundary line like Hy-  kort'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 arc open  the year round.  Itesolvod, that the nominee of this convention he required to pledge himself to do his ulinosl to carry out the  views expressed in the resolutions adopted by th is con volition, unci that oaoh delegate to this convention make  every effort to secure the eke.ion of the nominee of the  convention.  Resolved, that the lands embraced within railway  grants should be immediately surveyed, in order that  they be open to sellleincnt.  Resolved, that the people living in the valley of Kootenay river between the lakeand the International bound-  dary line and those living in Fire Valley on the west side  of Lower Arrow lake are justly entitled to mail facilities,  anil that we deem it a duty to urge that post ollices he  established al Rykorl's custom-house and at a central  point in Fire Valley.

Thanking you and the delegates for tho honor  conferred, I am respectfully voiirs,  J. FRKD. IIUMK.  R. F. Oi.KK.v. Esq.. chairman.  J. A. Tcknku, secretary.  course, publication ol' the notico in The  .Minor or Tiik Triihjnk oL" Nelson, or The  Times of Kaslo, or The Prospector of New  Denver, would have cost twenty-five dollars or so; but such publication might  have saved five times that amount to the  department in the c'lmoimt of the tender  for the service. Recently tenders wore  as keel for by the same official for carrying  the mail between the postoflice at Donald  and the Canadian Pacific depot at  Donalel���tt contract that 'would not be  undertaken by anyone living outside of  Donald; yet tin advertisement calling for  Letielers for the^ervice was inserted iu the  (iolilen Era. If it was eleeineel to be in the  interest of economy to do without newspaper publicity in calling for tenders for  an important route in West Kootenay,  would it not Jim ve been in the interest of  economy to havedone without newspaper  publicity in calling for tenders for an unimportant route in l_]ast Ivootenay? If  postoflice inspector Fletcher cannot answer the above entestiou, perhaps his  superiors at Ottawa can.  SKULLDUGGERY   WAS   PRACTICED.  "When the provisions of the act regarding the registration of  voters were  first  printed,   The   Thihcnk   intimated   that  skullduggery would be attempted by the  supporters of the government. ' The prediction   was based  on   the  fact that the  government's managers in West Jvootenay  are  men   known- to be    very   unscrupulous; men   who  would  willingly disfranchise every man in tho district who is not  in favor of '"standingin" with the government.    The prediction has been verified.  In  aiding in  tJie  revision of the voters'  list,   the    opposition   were   scrupulously  careful that no man entitled to vote should  be   deprived   of   that   right   because   of  doubts  on  their part.    Not so, however,  with   tlie  managers   of. tlie  government  party who aided  in the revision.    livery  name not known to them personally was  put on the doubtful list, anel the notices  required under section 12 of the act were  sent through   the   mails  to  upwards   of  three hundred names entered on the register.    By  the wording of these notices,  t-lie parties to whom they were sent were  rceptired   to return  satisfactory  answers  by May 1st;  yet notices addressed to residents   of  outlying   districts like  Slocan  were not deposited  in  the  postoflice tit  Nelson   until  April   30th,  and   therefore  could  not be received by tlie parties to  whom addressed until long after the day  on which the answers must be Hied. Many  of those  whose  names  were entered  on  the register have changed their residence  since sending in  their applications, and  notices mailed them to their former places  of residence will not be  received.    Many  others are men who visit the towns at irregular intervals,  and letters addressed  tliem   are often sent to  the dead letter  office.    However,  prompt   steps   will   be  taken to get the names dropped from the  list restored, and  the government party  managers will find that every name so restored will be that of a man who will cast  a ballot on election day against the party  who   attempts- to   prolong   its   lease   of  power by trickery and fraud.  A   SEPARATE   DISTRICT   REQUIRED.  tion candidates, except those IVdui Victoria, were all "independents.'' Will the  coming election result in the election ol" a  minority of "inelepeiitlents." as diil the  election of 1S!)0? History sometimes repeats itself.   Onk of the tactical moves of the able'  generals that are directing .Mr. Buchanan's  campaign in the south riding is to invoke  the aid of the church with which premier  Davie affiliates. Mr. Davie is to use his  influence with the bishop, and the bishop  i.s to instruct the reverend fathers who  are to be sent to the riding, anel the reverend fathers are to act as election agents  for Mi: Buchanan. The able generals  must have a poor opinion of the intelligence of the electors who affiliate with  the Catholic church, to even hint at such  a move, for the members of that church  in the south riding will, toa. man, resent  any such dictation. Any attempt to drag  the church into politics in British Columbia shoulel be fi'owneel down by the members of both parties: and any such attempt in A Vest Ivootenay will surely react  on the party or men attempting it.  Onk of Ci. O. Buchanan"* most active  supporters in Nelson says that, if elected  to the provincial legislature, Mr. Buchanan will resign and run for the Dominion house. Now it is well known that  the Mara interests in southern Kootenay  are working to secure Mr. Buchanan's  election to the provincial house, and, if  one good turn deserves another, .Mr.  Buchanan surely, in the hereafter, cannot  be a candidate against Mr. Mara. But if  it is to be thus, who is to step into (J. O.'s  shoes in the local house? Is it to be (iil-  bert Malcolm Sproat, whose generalship  has already worked such a wonderful  result as to change Ivaslo from a government camp into an opposition stronghold?  According to the reports sent to Tho  Vancouver World antl The Victoria Cole-  nist from Kaslo anel Nelson, the government canditlate in tho south rieling of  West Kootenay will have a walk-over;  all because of the able generalship of the  "old hand'" that i.s directing his campaign.  The "olel hand" is none other than Gilbert  i\Ialce)lm Sproat, who for a time was the  editor of The Miner. If he displays no  better generalship in conducting an election campaign than heelid-in conducting  a war of words in a newspaper, the government candidate in the south riding  will not save his deposit.  Tiik managers of the government party  in the south riding say they playeel a  waiting -game before nominating their  candidate. Yes, each and every one of  them wanted the nomination, and they  hoped that by deferring the day they  would get what they so longingly waited  for. '   UNRELIABLE   REPORTS.  gootl speaker, lie is a sawmill owner tit  Kaslo. Tho opposition candidate is J. F.  Iltnno, a. Nelson storekeeper, personally  respectable anel of amiable manners, but  weak, ill-informed, anel unable to address  the public with tiny effect, liis support  is among those who personally like him  a.nd among the I'actioni.it '"kickers" who  propose to make use of him in the hope of  overthrowing the government. The Nelson election committee of government  supporter* met lor the first time today,  the idea being that about a do/.en might  be present to talk over <|iiestions of organisation, and so a small room w.as taken  for the purpose.

AN ECONOMICAL POSTOFFICE INSPECTOR.  .Postoflice inspector  Fletcher  has  been  credited with a desire to keep down   the  expenses of  his elistrict,  so that  the  in-  come weaild not be  excooelcd by   the outlay.    In doing so, however, hi.s  methods  are peculiar.    One of the most important  routes in West Kootenay is the one from  Ivaslo te) Sew Denver,   by way of Watson  anel   Three   Forks.      Tenelers   I'or   a   triweekly mail service   were recently asked  for.

Instead of adopting a method that woulel havegiven great  publicity, which coiilel only have result eel  in a greater number of tenders being put  in, the opposite course  was adoptcel.    Of  The customs collections in southern  Jvootenay tire in the aggregate a sum that  justifies the creation of a separate customs district; one independent of New  "Westminister: one in which the reports  of thecollecter would godirect to Ottawa,  anil not first be sent to a town on the  coast. The region that should be embraced in such a district lias already  nearly a do/.en sub-collectors and preven-  sive officers stationed within it. The sub-  ports of Trail, Nelson, and Kaslo are all  of more than average importance, and  will become more important as the mining industry develops. The bulk of the  imports will pass- through some one point  on Kootenay lake, anel at 'that' point  should be located the office of the collector. Am effort is being made at Ottawa  to make'Nakusp a sub-port and Revelstoke the port' I'or the elistrict. That  effort is evidently being made in tho in-  tercstof the few inelividttals who are interested as real estate speculators at Na-  ktispand Revelstoke, anel not in tho interest of cither tlicgovernmentor the people  who have; dealings with the customs department. The necessities of this section  shoulel tie) longer be subortlinatetl to the  self-interest of any member of parliament,  oven though that member be our own  John Andrew Mara.  So far. the only e:aiididates nominated  by the government party who tiro  straight party men are Messrs. Rithet,  Turner, Helmcken. anel Brown of Victoria. All the others are "independents."  Messrs. Tatlow anel Anderson of Vancouver tire "independents." Mr. Home  of Vancouver is out of the race, anel  does not count. Mr. Curtis of New  Westminister is an "iiidopcmlent," Mr.  Buchanan of the smith riding of West  Ivootenay is an '"independent," that is, if  elected he: will endeavor to form a party  that will ree-eigni/.e him as Icaeler. From  present, indications the government party  is now in much the same condition as was  the opposition in I.S00.

Jt is difficult to  form  an opinion of tlie  relative strength of the  two  parties  by  reading the reports published in the press.  The organs of the government chronicle  every meeting of their  party as-largely  attended   and enthusiastic.     Those that  .oppose the government report the government  party meetings as slimly attended  and   lacking  in   spirit.     Tiik   Trihcnk,  while opposed to the  return to  power of  the Davie government, is not an organ   in  any sense of the word; it is a newspaper,  and as such endeavors to be fair in its reports of political meetings.    In its report  of the    proceedings   of the caucus that  placed Mr. Buchanan   in   nomination,   it  gave   the names of those  who attended  the caucus, as well  as  the  names of the  Ivaslo electors who signed Mr. .Buchanan's  requisition.    Of the  thirty-eight who attended the caucus, not more than twenty-  five can be classed  as  supporters of the  government or   its  candidate.    Judging  by the way in which the proceedings were  transacted, everything had  been  pre-arranged���even to the little speech that the  candidate made on accepting the nomination.    In striking contrast  to the report  in Tiik Thiihjnk is the  following,   which  appeared   in   the   Victoria Colonist as ti  "special" from Nelson:  "Nki.son.

"Why They Don't Marry.  "Thirty or forty years ago," says Grant  Allen,  in   what  he  is  pleased to call "A  Philosophic   View of the Marriage Question." "young men used to rush by blinel  instinct into the toils of matrimony���because they could not help themselves. Today    they   shillyshally,   they    pick   and  choose, they discuss, they criticise,  they  say foolish things about the club, and the  flat,  and   the cost of  living.     But  they  don't marry, and  it i.s because there are  less of young men than formerly.    Civilization and its works havocoine teio eptickly  upon us.    Railways, lelogrttphs. the ltttest  edition, have  playeel   havoc tit last with  our nervous systems.    'We bolt our breakfast: we catch   the train  or  bus  by  the  skin of out* teeth; the tape clie-.ks perpetually in our ears  the last ((notation; the  telephone rings us up at inconvenient moments.    Something  is always happening  somewhere   to   disturb   our   equanimity.  Life  is  one   turmoil  of   excitement  iind  bustle.    Financially,  'tis  a series  of dissolving views: personally, 'tis a. rush: socially,  'tis a   mosaic of deftly littod engagements.     Drop out one piece, and you  can never  replace it.

Not an hour,  not tt minute, we can call our own.   The  first generation after Stephenson and the  nockot pulled through with it somehow.  They inherited the sound constitutions of  the  men  who  sat on   rustic seats in the  gardens  of  the '20's.    Tho second generation   felt the strain of  it  more  severely.  New machines had come in  to  make life  still   more complicated.    Telegrams,  Bell  and    Fdisun. sub-marine  cables,  evening  papers, poruin bations pouring in'I'rom all  sides incessantly.    The suburbs growing,  the hubbub increasing, metropolitan railways, trains,  bicycles, iunumcrahlcs, but  we still endured and presented the world  till   the  same   with   a   third   generation.  That   third    generation���ah,    me!    there  comes the pity of it!    One fancies the impulses to  ina try  and   roar a   family has  wholly died out of it.    It seems   to  have  died out most in the class where the strain  iind   stress   a-re   greatest.    J  don't  think  young-.men of  that class today have the  same feelings toward women of their sort  sis formerly.    With certain classes aud in  'certain-places'^ a primitive instinct of outface has weakened.

THE  SUICIDE.  -The coroner's jury passed into the dimly  lighted, sopulchrtil room whore the remains t>i! the suicide lay upon tt marble  slab. Some ol'them shrank back involuntarily at the entrance; others gave evidence ol: having nerved themselves to  look upon the grewsome sight; one or two  showed curiosity. They came in noiselessly, with uncovered heads, and spoke'  to eae.h-other in low' tones, as if; tearing  to disturb the silence which death 011-  ��� throned ."imperiously- demands. For, indeed, the opject before them was ghastly.  No kind hands had closed the lids over  the protruding eye-balls, nor bound up  the hanging jaw, which gave to the gaping mouth the appearance of having, for  its last office, uttered some terrible cry.  From each of the corners of the mouth  and down the chin slowly oozed a few remaining drops e>f blood. The hair at the  back of the head was matted and damp  Avith the crimson fluid. In life the suicjele  had been a man, young and handsome.  Beyond the fact that lie av;is dead, nothing  was known of him���the witnesses could'  tell no more. So the charitable placard,  "Unidentified,"-was still allowed to hang  above hi in.  When thejury entered the room, one of  them���a -prosperous-looking, elderly  man���quickly advanced to the side of the  corpse. He bent his head down to the  face of the dead,-and kept it there. The  action startled those in the room until it  was seen that he was critically examining  the self-inflicted wound. He peered into  the blood-stained mouth and closely  .scrutinized the back of the head. As lie  straightened up again, there was an inele-  finable expression of grim satisfaction  upon, his countenance which mildly  shocked more than one of hi.s f el low-jurymen.  After the jury had retiree! and were  waiting in their room for the coroner to  receive their verdict, one of them vt-u-  tureil an interrogative remark to him:  You seem to take an unusual interest iu  our unfortunate subject?"  "Yes���surgically."  "Then you are a surgeon ?"  "It was my' profession once; but, unfortunately, it litis been a long time since  .1 practiced it. The dead nitin in there  eliel well."  "Did you say well?" interrupted an  ancient-looking juryman with great sever-  i ty.  "L eliel," replied the surgeon; "he elirl  liis work well. By placing the muzzle of  his pistol against the roof of his mouth  and shooting upward, there was no possible escape from instant death, anel that  is what he sought."  "An ill-done eleed well done," was the  epigrammatic comment of another.  "J think it was well done in every aspect of the case," continued the surgeon ;  "he hael cause���he must have hud cause���  to justify his action."  This rather sensational assertion attracted general attention, and the ascetic-  looking "juryman observed, with even in-  creaseel severity:  "I take it yon tire not a religious man?"  "Probably not, in your acceptation of  the term," was the answer. "I subscribe  to none of the popular dogmatic creeds,,  yet I believe in conscience, morality, anel  tin intelligent creator. We are given no  volition as to whether or not we shall be  born ; but this is, in a great measure, cemi-  nensatcd by the fact that, if we fiuel lifea  burden, we have in our e.wii hands the  power to end it. if our death works no  injury tei the living, it is none either but  our own affair.    Only a cowan I would ele-  eei-t.tlio.se dependent upon him."  "That line of sophistry litis been refuted  ���i thousand times," cried hi.s questioner  .with some excitement.  "Possibly: but those are my views,  nevertheless."  As ho said this, he took from his pocket  "a small memoranda-book, tore from it a  leaf upon which he wrote something in  pencil, iind then replaced the book.  '���The juryman "who first induced the surgeon te) make his strange declaration, hael  evidently been entertained by it, antl  ���sought again to el raw him out.  "No one was over yet sane, in my  opinion, at the moment of taking his own  life." he averred.  "1 do not .agree with you," said the surgeon, placidly; "to me the persistent  clinging to a, miserable life when death is  far preferable, is1 rather the evidence of  insanity. Many instances can be imagined where .death i.s a boon; a deadly  and incurable disease: cruel sulTering in  till its forms, with noprospect of surcease;  life imprisonment; senility; insanity;  deep humiliation anil permanent disgrace.

All that money could do was eloiie for the  son. Attaining man's estate, he was given  tin important anel responsible position in  tt largo financial institution in which the  father was iuteresteel. All went well, and  te) them both life was well worth the living. Hut one day something terrible  htippeneel; the son was a defaulter���the  father, disgracoel and financially involved.  "The son fled, and for a long time indignation alone burned in the breast of  the father. Gradually the old, all-absorbing 'affection, for his son came back to  him, aud he set out to find him. After  many disappointment's,, his search was at  last .rewarded.' He had but a few years  at best to live himself. He did not want  them after lie had found his son. He  wanted relief���death."  And then this man, who had discoursed  with such uninipassioned fluency, deliberately took from hi.s pocket a revolver,  placed it in his mouth, fired, aud fell over  dead.  From his outstretched hand a crumpled'  piece of paper fell.    Upon it was written:  "Bury us together.    He was my son."  GLADSTONE   AS   A   FINANCIER.  Always Governed by a Scrupulous, Old-Fashioned Sense  of Honor.  Lo idon Investors' Review: "A stately  figure has left the political arena since  the last number of this Review,appeared,  and already while yet he lives, his apotheosis has begun. The men who but the  other day reviled him now say'he is a  great-man;' even the Times itself, the  most .spiteful and rancorous political  sheet in the three kingdoms, except perhaps its imitator, the Scotsman, now  mourns only over his latter career. hi a,  few years or months, it anel its.kind will  be quoting his utterances as words of  golden wisdom compared with those of  their new political bugbears.

To us, all  too frequently, politicians of all hues seem  mostly on tho side of the devil iu human  a (fairs.. They as a rule shy, not what i.s  true iu itself, but what they think their  ���polling-booth supporters will esteem  truth. Such has become the law of  "popular" government���-a savage war of  self-interest for the uieistptirt, whose ultimate result no man can foree-.ist.  It is not as a politician, then, that we  note the departure of .Mr. Glaelstone (Venn  the office of prime minister tmel from public life���not its a politician, but as a political iind social economist;. The present  generatitm has forgotten mostof this life's  work, knows naught of what it owes to  liis labors, and wo can but briefly recall  the past here. In eloing so erne; general  observation may be permitted. Throughout his life Mr. (I'laelstone litis been eminently clean-handed. Not only litis he  never taken a pension for himself from  tlie public purse, but ho has never, when  not in ofliee, eked out his income by means  unworthy a-gentleman anel a man of true  honesty, lie preferred to write magazine articles anel books about Homer.  Consequently his name is never found  among those who 'punt' on the Stock lOx-  chango; no limitcel liability eennpany ever  got him to be a director, norcotilel asingle  financier ever conjure with his prestige'  because of any selfish interest he might j  have iu view. .Mr. Gladstone's very pur-  ityof ininel and ennelucf in this anel either  respects was doubtless tt source e>f weak- j  ness to liitn in practical affairs, anel for  one thing marks him throughout his  career a big judge of men. Charlatans  could always impose upon him for a time  if they weie plausible, because the simplicity ami uprightness e>f his own ininel  anil life unfitted him for comprehending  baser-niineled individuals. To no small  extent his  virtues were  the cause of the  intense htitreel   with  which so  many  regarded him, and in this respect his successor i.s much more favorably placed for the  enjoyment of a, long anel  prosperous political career.    Lord    Kosebery   knows till  about tlie turf and  the stock exchange,  those   'dear   e)Iel   Knglish   vices."   About  Mr. Gladstone there litis always been something of the ecclesiastic in the best sense,  and a gootl  dettl of the dialectician  and  theological causuist.   But te> us, above all  other characteristics of a great  personality, stands out doniinaiiLly this attribute  of cleanness.   It is visible hot only in his  own life, but in the way he has abstained  from quartering his family upon   the nation.'  We remember'.once hearing' about  a relative of his who declared with strong  language that,   had  he  been  a complete  stranger to the prime minister, he would  have  long   since-had   promotion  in  the  fighting service of which he was a. humble  subaltern.     The ��� complaint  was beyond  doubt justified by the facts, for a scrupulous ami noble sense of honor���old-fashioned and rare always���governed the late  prime-minister's conduct in   this respect  also, as all who care to look at the actual  positions of his children can see for themselves.    Differ from him politically as men  may, and as on  some things  thoughtful  men niiist, it is impossible, looking at the  facts, for anyone not to admit that in losing Mr.  Gladstone's services  the  nation  parts with oneof the purest, and,  in  all  that   relates to   himself and  his  family,  most unselfish  man who ever helped',to  guide its affairs."  NOT   APPRECIATED.  A Breacli-of-Promise Case.  31 r. Sergeant Wilkins once defended n  breach-of-proniise case for tt singularly  ugly little man, which he told the defendant, after reading his brief, must bt  "bounced" through. And the sergeant  did bounce it through in a. truly remarkable maimer. "Gentlemen of the jury,'  he said, at the close of tt most eloquent  speech," you have heard the evidence foi  the plaintiff; and, gentlemen of thejury,  you have seen and.have admired that  most bewitching plaintiff herself. Gentlemen, do you believe that this enchanting, this fascinating, this captivating,  this accomplished lady would for one  moment favor the advances or listen with  anything save scorn and indignation to  the amorous protestations of the wretched  and repulsive lioiniinculus, the deformed  and degraded defendant?" : His client  looked up from the well of the court anel  piteously murmured: "Mr. Sergeant Wilkins! Oh, Mr. Sergeant Wilkins!" "Silence, sir!" replied the sergeant, in a  wrathful 'undertone. "Gentlemen," he  continued, bringing his fist down heavily  on the desk before him, "do you think  that this lovely laely, this fair and smiling creature, woulil ever have permitted  an offer of marriage to be made to her by  this miserable atom of humanity, this  stunted creature, who would have to  stand on a sheet of note paper to look  over twopence?" The jury at once gave  a verdict for the defendant.  Ingenious Meanness.  A good story comes from an Ontario  village, and a report of the ingenuity of  man's acquisitiveness may be a pointer  for some of those not averse to turning  an honest penny���their way. It is reported that a certain brother in the fold,  who takes an active part in church work,  and in whom implicit confidence has been  placet! by his associates, has beeiieletectexl  with a piece of sticky fly paper in  hi.s hat when he went to take up the collection at the church. All the coins that  dropped upon the fly paper staid there,  and it was nmti/.ing how the big pieces  croweleel the little ones off. When the  audience hael been solicited, this smooth  iuelivieliial would advtiue.c anel turn his  htit upside flown over thntof another whe)  hail been .soliciting1, the audience on the  other sifle of tho house. All the coin that  drop]>ed belonged to the church, anel all  that retnaincil in the. hat was to remunerate him for the weirk he htitl elone, so to  speak. There is said to bo blood em the  i'ae-e of the moon, and the gtieiel brother,  who is a P. P. A. and has political aspirations, antl the one's whotraught him iu the  act are having a time. The sequel is yet  to be written, but when daffodils begin  to show their heaels through the sun-  kissed soil itnel buels herald the leafy 'lays  of springtime, n convocation of wise men  and elders of the church are expected to  set em the matter, anel  gists who want to so  should advertise its  uses.  -meanwhile Urttg-  I stietky fly paper  newly   dise:eivereil  Must Stay at Home.

Iii Harper's Weekly of April 11 th. Caspar W. Whitney, under the heading,  "An Unappreciated Game." has an excel-  lentarticlegivingn history of the popular  Canadian game of lacrosse antl bemoaning  the lack of interest in and appreciation of  the game in the United States. Mr.  Whitney says that the game has even  more charms than football or baseball,  and declares it to be the greatest game  played by civilized man.  Lacrosse i.s an Indian game iind like the  people from which we derive it, its origin  fades into obscurity and it is impossible  to learn  anything   of   its early history.  '. ISveii the Indian traditions of lacrosse tire  very scarce, and they know only that the  game came down to them from father to  son as have been their customs. When  first played by the Indians the goal was a  single pole'or a< tree or a rock,,.and the  length of a fieltl anywhere from oOO yards  to half a mile. There was no limit to the  lumber of participants, sometimes (500,  -100, and even a 1000 players engaging in  it. A notable feature of the Inelian game  wsis the absolute sinking of all individual  play into general team play, even in teams  consisting of hundreds'of.'players. The  gallic as played by the Indians was not sc>  scientific as that of today, but was rather  one which tested the speed anel wind and  was'a good training school for the -warrior.  It is  hard   to say when the game was  lirst  played  by Canadians,  but it must  have  been early in the present century.  In lS-K) the Montreal club was organized  tnel played matches with the Indians, but  only succeeded  in winning one game,in  the season.    In , 1800 a match  was played  .it Montreal for the pleasure of the prince  of Wales, and in that year William Beers  published  a   pamphlet   in   which  he attempted to ret luce the game to a set of  rules.   Lacross began to crystallize as we  have.it today in 1870, when  the old bagged cross was discarded, the size of the  field  was  reduced  to 125 yards, and the  number of players was restricted.    Since  then  the game  has spread .over Canada  and is played everywhere.   It is played  by the youngsters as  soon as they are  strong enough to wield thestickanel every  country  town  and village has its senior  tind junior lacre>sse clubs.    What lacrosse  is accomplishing for our boys antl young  men is apparent to every visitor,"and nowhere in the world can  finer specimens  of boyhood and young manhood  in  their  rugged health and strength  be seen.    As  played now lacrosse requires the greatest  combination of  mental and  physical activity that men can sustain in recreation.  Head, speed, and endurance tire required,  and each player has tin opportunity to exercise these finalities.    To tho. spectator  the game'may at  times  appear to  be ti  little rough, but it is not nearly so much  so as. football, and   there  is certainly no  name in the world so attractive to the onlooker.    It eliffers from football  in  being  absolutely intelligible to the most, uninformed layman and from baseball in giving  more  opportunity  for  play to more  men on the same .side simultaneously,    it  abounds in open and beautiful plays, iinei  the onlookers   see   the   pretty  stops   of  goal keepers, the long  throws of the ele-  fense,  the  fast running anel  eloelging of  the centers tind   the clever stick weirk ejf  the  attacks.    We   heipe   that the Xelson  club which has been   recently  organized  will during the coming.season sustain the  town's reputation for manly sports. Other  clubs   throughout   the    province   are  already at work anil are sustaining the national game of.Canatla.  Great care shoulel  be exercised to provenit, ns far as possible,  the   introduction   of   professionalism,  as  just so seifin as professional luemsse.' players secure control of the game it will commence te) deterioriate.  Not Wanted in Canada.  There are signs, says the Toronto O'lobe.  that we-are drifting far toward the ostentation of royalty at Otttiwn. It is a far  slop from Dublin castle to eleuieicratie  Canada. Many fashions iind displays  that would, perhaps, seem imposing in the  olel html, amiel aristocratic surrouuilings  and sanctiemeel by ancient customs, verge:  upon the groUt<(\ue here. What this  country wants is plain business uietheids.  anel plain, business administration. We  may go out em the street e'orners tei look  at the four-horse-team, and hear tht-biinel.  anil see the soldiers go by. but we regard  the; parade very much as we elo the circus  procession witli the prancing steeds ami  the gileleel e-.-iges anil the steam pin no.  The glittering Windsor uniforms and the  richly upholstered page-s at the state  levee must always seems an unreal part,  of life in this community, and must always be out of harmony with every true  ('aiiitfliiin "fuiictiem." So the regulat iems  lor iielmissioii to the pre.senci. of vice-  royalty which set apart n senator's en-  trane.-e, an enl.rane-e reserved for iimnibcrs,  (heir wives ami   elalighters,   anil  a  third  reserved for "ladies and gentlemen other  than   those nientionee!" tire absurd, offensive anil wholly out of touch   with   the  best   Canadian   ideals.     Lord   ami   lady  Aberdeen have won a close  place  in  the  esteem of tlie mass of the Canadian   people.    It will be a pity  if they encourage  the imported   ostentation, class   distinctions and general social tom-foolery which  seem to be on the increase at the:  capital.  We have;  the circus and  amateur  theatricals tit the regular rates of admission.  Why should we enelow either as a  national institution?  THE   MOUNTAIN   SUCCESS.  He "Who Reached Its Summit Left Happiness  Behind.  In the valley of Life  there is a  mountain,  steep and  rugged,  named  Success;.  There is no path leading up his precipitous side, aud  he who would   ascend   must  prepare his own   way before him. hewing  down trees, pressing aside brambles, and  rolling huge boulders outof  his rone!, or  crushing them into tho earth and treading  upon them with triumphant, but bleeding  feet.    One caiiie to tlie foot of this mountain one fair summer day, and looked upward to its dome towering into the skies,  and lie said : "Tomorrow will I climb it"���  and he fell  to chasing golden butterflies  through thoscented air.    Anel the morrow  came, but he only looked upward and said  again:    "Next week will I climb it"���for  who coulel work when the primroses were  yellow on the river's bank?    And when a  week hael passed, he looked upward, and  'said once more:    Next 'year  will  I  climb  it"���for, hear! how glad   the  wild   birds  were in the meadows; surely this was no  time  for  work.    And  when  a year. had.  passed, lo! he looked upward, shaking his  head.    "I   am  so   happy here, "he ���said,  "with only the birds and the flowers and  the  beautiful dreams   that  steal out of  star-light   anel   abide   with   me.    I   shall  never climb; for he who climbs must leave  love behind."   But'he waved a God speed  to the ones  who  had set out  in  youth's  morning     tind      were     climbing   away,  wearily, in the heat tind thirst of the noon.  Another came, with   flashing eyes, tind  set out boldly  I'or  the mountain   top; he  climbeel swiftly and   vigorously, and  always when he Intel forced a boulder outof  his own way, he rolled it into the path of  a- brother.struggling below, and  said, between closeel teeth :    "Let them work.-is I  have," and went on hi.s way.    But, as his  hand was against every man,   itnel in   his  heart were only hate and envy, it came te>  pass that he leist all interest in the valley  of Life tind   in   the  mountain of Success:  tind he lay flown weak ami bitter-hearted  in the shadow of the rock naineel Scorn ���  for lie had not.strength   anel hop'u  to  reill  it out of his   path; and  lie hatotl the people who patiently clinibeel  p;ist hint, and  flung thorns anel stones in .their way, .that  then* poor feet must bleed, -for being   too  bitter and   teio  narrow-iiiineleel to climb  higher,   he   would   have  kept   all others  bottnil  down   to  hi.s  level.    Ami lei! who  came, with   upturned   eyes, to the mountain, and set out in the early morning for  the   summit.

The Nelson  6c Fort ���Sheppard Rail way  Company has strung a wire from its dejiot to the central  ollice of .tlio telephone: company. It is just, possible that  there will yet bo a telegraph ollice at a central point in  the town. If the express companies would do likewise,  that is, eslablisb ollices 'within easy reach of the people  with whom they do business, fewer "kicks" would.be  registereel against them.  '���Sam" McGee, Avho was foreman at the  Dardanelles mine, died lit Hear Lake on Wednesday  morning.  John F. Ward returned to Nelson today  from a trip through the mining camps in northern Idaho.  He reports the Ceeur d'Alemcs fairly prosperous, but pronounces the "excitements" at all old placer camps like  I'ierco City as ftikes. ���  J. E. Boss ���was in from. Spokane on Wednesday. .  Minor Notes From New Denver.  Li. Kirk wood and Hugh Mann are applying for a eertillcatc of improvements to the Western  claim. The Western forms an extension to the townsite  of Three Kprks.  Clive Fhillipps-Wolley paid New Denver a flying visit last week. He was too excited by reports of bear being around to elo much electioneering.  Mike Grady's cariboo litis become quite  tame. Mike took it up to the mine the oilier day.  Occasionally it. gets playful and then the boys go down  like ninepins. It is vci-y fond of bread anil will eat it  from the hanel.  The wagon road and tramway at'Silver-  ton arc progressing rapidly. Silverton is looking for a  boom this spring.  Likhvard Applewhaite of Nelson visited  Xew Denver last week.  NYPalorcia, late of Donald, bootmaker,  has coino to settle at Xew Denver and go into bus ness  here. >   '   ���  A strong-  vein   has  been  discovered in  doing assessment work on the Dixie, one of the many extensions to the Mountain Chief. The Dixie was located  by Harry Walters two years ago.  Preparations are being made to celebrate the queen's birthday at New Denver.  J. .1. Moynahan, J. A. Finch's representative, is back in X'ew Denver for the season. He spent  the winter in Spokane, and says we in the Slocan clout  know what harel times are.  W. .Springer, is  back from Trail Creek.  Things are quiet there lie says. It is too close to the line  and a number of dead broke men have come m there  looking for work.  S.  M. Wharton is back among us  once  more.   He has left the route from Spokane to New Den- J  ver plastered all over with advertisements of the town.  The government has sent in A. Cttmer-  on to report on the condition of the wagon road. After  his report goes to Nelson and Victoria, we may hope to  have something done.  sidorably expanded ,and their specific  gravity greatly reeluced; up to a certain  limit the muscles of their bodies can  counteract the tendency Lo float upward,  tind enable the fish to regain its proper  sphere tif life tit the bottom; but beyond  that limit the muscles are not strong  enough to drive the body downward, and  the fish, he-coming moro and'more dis-  Leneleel as it goes, is graelually killed on  its long and involuntary journey to the  surface of the sea. That such accidents  ele> occur is evielenced by the fact that  some fish, which are known to be true  eleep-,se:a forms, were discovered dead antl  floating on the surface of the ocean long  before our modern investigations were  e-enninenccd.    OBSERVE ��� THE   REGULATIONS.  The Marine Act Repeatedly Violated on Kootenay Lake. '  It; will bo remembered that the merchants on Ivootontiy lake were mulcted  in various sums for a violation of tho customs regulations; a violation, as they  claimed, through ignorance of the law.  The owners of steamboats on Kootenay  lake may also be ignorant of the regulations which govern the running of steam  vessels, and if they would not be treated  as were the merchants, they had better  road the following, which is compiled by  a mail "well versed on the-Marine Act:  The expression "freight boat" means  steamboats carrying freight only. The  expression "passenger" means any person  carried on a steamboat other than tlie  master antl crew, and the owner, hi.s  family tind servants connected witli his  household. The expression "passenger  steamboat" means any steamboat except yachts used exclusively for pleasure  without hire of any kind���carrying any  person other than the master and crew,  the owner, his family and the servants  connected with liis.-household..- ft will be  observed that the word is owner in the  singular, not owners. The expression  "owner" includes the lessee or charterer  of any such vessel, ft is iiot owners or  charterers, only either in the singular.  This is done on purpose because "owners  or charterers" would open a very wide  door. This ought to make the matter  clear, both to steamboat men and the  ���chief officer of customs. The master,  owner, or person in charge for the time  being of any steamboat oil which a  greater number of passengers than that  allowed by her certificate are at any time  carried, or in respect of which no certificate authorizing the carrying of passengers has been granted and in which  passengers are carried, is guilty of an offence against this act, and- shall for each  such offence incur a penalty not exceed-,  ing $500 and not les.s than $100 and costs;  and such steamboat shall be liable for the  same and chargeable therewith, and if  such penalty is not paid forthwith the  steainboatshall be-seized and sold by any  chief officer of customs thereto directed  by the minister."
