St  lapital anb 'Brains  Can   Both   be   Employed   to   Advantage   in  the-Mining  Camps of East and   ���  West   Kootenay.  FIEST  YEAR.-NO.  NELSON, BRITISH  COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  OCTOBER  12,   1893.  PRICE  TEN  CENTS.  THE   YANKEE   AGAIN   ON   TOP.  BRITISH     CUTTERS      NOT     EQUAL     TO  AMERICAN     CENTERBOARDERS.  Although Sailed With Great Skill, the Valkyrie Loses tho First and Second Races to  tho Vigilant The Third Trial on Wednesday no Race,  Hocause of Light Wind.  The contest I'or tho America's Cup is of  as great interest out hero in British Columbia us it is in Now York, and British  Columbians only regret that the Valkyrie  is not ji. centerb'oarder, for it is evident  that type of vessel is superior to the type  of which the Valkyrie is one of the best.  TI4HMS  OF TIIK  GUI'  IIAUNS.  The nititch shall bo decided by the winning of three out of five races, starting  from the .Sandy Hook lightship, oyer  courses as near as possible thirty nautical  miles iu length. First, to windward or  leeward and return; second, equilateral  triangle, one side���the first if possible���to  windward; third, .similar to first; fourth,  similar to second; fifth, similar to first.  Any race in which the elapsed time of the  yacht finishing first exceeds six hours  shall not count and must be resailed.  TIIK  KIUST  HACK.  I tick of wind made the first of the international yacht races on Thursday, the uth  instant, a failure, as it was impossible to  linish inside of six hours, the limit set by  the cup committee. It was more of a  drifting match than a race. The wind at  no time readied the dignity of a sailing  breeze. The race was started with the  wind from the north. It ended with the  wind from tho south. The thousands of  enthusiastic yachtsmen saw the Valkyrie  at one time, nearly two miles in the lead,  and some of them were glad that the  wind failed to carry the boat over the  course in the six hours, as. had it freshened toward the last, the Kngiish cutter  would, in all probabilities, have won the  race. More fair-minded yachtsmen recognized tlie superior way in which .John  Bull's sailors outgeneraled Uncle Sam's  tars and regretted that the Kngiish boat  avou only an empty victory.  On Saturday the contest was a  magnificent one, from a naval point of  view, and demonstrated the superiority  of the center board over the cutter as well  ���as the superior seamanship of the crow of  the English yacht. ,.:;  The preparatory gun  wtis fired sharply  ���at 11:15 a. in., and  when the starting gun  was touched oft there was. only.a question  of about ISO feet between tho two yachts,  the Valkyrie having the lead.    The wind  -vvas  blowing tit the rate-of about seven  miles au hour and the cutter kept ou increasing the lead.    At the end of the lirst  mile she was a good two lengths ahead.  The .Valkyrie-increased  the lead tit least  one more   length   during   the   first   two  miles.    From   that -point up  to  the distance of four and a half miles  the   Vigilant held her own.    Then a change'came.  Suddenly the Vigilant caught  the slant  of the wind, although the  Valkyrie  was  not touched by it, and within fifteen minutes'she  was   fully a quarter-of-a nii.e  in .the'lead. ' in  another quarter of  an  ���'hour the American boat not only held the  lead, but increased it to a full mile before  she had sailed live miles.   The   Valkyrie  remained at her mile distance and could  not gain an inch.   The Vigilant made the  turn of the outer mark amid the greatest  enthusiasm.'  The  wind   wtis  now  about  west antl   it  became a question  of long  reach.    It wtis on a reach that the cutter  was supposed to be at her best.    During  the reach, however, with all things equal,  the Vigilant actually gained on thecutter.  There was another shift in the wind and  the  boats were   both   compelled   to sail  closely to the wind,  when   the  Valkyrie  certainly appeared to gain ground.    The  distance    the    Valkyrie   overhauled   the  Vigilant  was   considerable,   but all   the  time'she wtis sagging off to the leeward  while  the center-board  was holding her  head at the wind.    Tho  Valkyrie caught  a slight wind and  picked up probably a  quarter of a mile.    Up to the end  of the  course there was no incident.    Tho Vigilant 'crossed  the  line on the same tack,  while the Valkyrie, having sagged away  to  leeward, had  to go about before she  could cross.   At the home line the flotilla  of excursionists formed a crescent. Thousands of spectators braved an immersion  and clambered  to every point of advantage.   They showed joy in their laces as  the   Vigilant crept   stotidily   nearer   the  swinging lightship.     Their joy burst its  bonds a.s the brave little Vigilant dipped  gracefully through the waves, and long  before the screaming of whistles told that  the royal battle had 'ended, 100,000 tongues  proclaimed in true American accord that  the queen of centerboarders find cutters  is here, and has still speed and strength  to   bear  the   name   of  cup defender   in  reality.  The regetta committee of the New York  Yacht Club has given the following table  of figures: Start���Actual time of the  Vigilant 11:2"5:'K), Valkyrie 11:25:25. Turning to outer mark���Vigilant l:5():5(), Valkyrie 1:48:50. Finish ���Vigilant 3:30:-! 7,  Valkyrie 3:38:23. Klapsed time- Vigilant  4:05:20, Valkyrie -1:13:23. Corrected time  ���Vigilant 1:05:27, Valkyrie 1:11:35. Thus  the Vigilant won by 5 minutes and 48 seconds on official and corrected time. It  will be seen that the Valkyrie gained on  the home stretch, as she was 8 minutes  and 0 seconds behind when the outer  mark was turned and 7 -minutes and 3(5  seconds at the linish in actual time.  THIO KI-t'ONI> hack.   '  On Monday the wind was blowing  tvventw-live miles an hour when both  boats went over the line within two sec  onds of each other. The Vigilant led by  the length of her boysprit. They made a  pretty start as they started on the beat to  windward of ton miles to the first mark.  As on Saturday, the Valkyrie forged  ahead at tho start. She was not running  quite as close to the wind tis the white  sloop, but she was going faster, hi ten  minutes the Valkyrie led by four lengths,  but the Vigilant wtis a trifle to windward.  The Valkyrie increased her load to ten  lengths at the end of the first half hour,  aud then, while Englishmen on the steamboats were hugging themselves with joy,  the Vigilant begtm to cut down the open  water between her bow and the Valkyrie's stern. She walked right up and took  the lead, and the race was a procession  for the point. The cup-defender gained 4  minutes and Jo seconds in the first ten  miles tacking to wind ward, 4 minutes and  12 seconds in the second ten miles run.  and 3 minutes and 2(5 seconds in the last  ten miles. She crossed the line ahead of  the Valkyrie 12 minutes and 23 seconds  actual time, and deducting the time allowance of 1 minute and 48 seconds she  won by 10 minutes and 35 seconds. The  steam whistles of till the'crul't that could  keep tho pace set by the white sloop  greeted her, and the people on the decks  yelled themselves hoarse. The Valkyrie  was over two miles astern when the Vigilant finished. The thirty mile race was  run in 3 hours and 25 minutes. The wind  blew almost half a gale during the last  half of the race and the boats came in  with decks forward wet with spray.  TIIK   YACHTS  AND TIIKIK  OWM3RS.  The Vigilant, which represents the  United States in the great contest, was  designed and built by the ITorreshoits, of  Bristol, Rhode Island., She is owned by a  syndicate of wealthy New York yachtsmen.

The Valkyrie was designed by George  L.* Watson," who wtis born in Glasgow,  Scotland, l'orty-one years ago. Jle exhibited <i groat fondness for tlie sea when  <i boy, and most of his time during school  vacation was spent along the shore and in  boating at Lnverkip, a Renfrewshire coast  resort. When sixteen years old he was  apprenticed to the Messrs. Napier, the  Glasgow shipbuilders, for the purpose of  becoming a draughtsman.

He  ���was educated at Marrow antl afterward  tit Oxford. Then he entered the Life  Guards, but resigned his commission in  the army in 1807. He then started for a  life of adventure, and went to "Abyssinia  with an expedition sent to rescue certain  prisoners held by the king. During this  trip he acted as special correspondent for  the Daily Telegraph. Me next went to  France with the victorious Germans, and  was a familiar figure during the siege of  Paris, writing strong and picturesque letters. In politics Dunraven is is n Liberal,  and has twice held the office of under sec-  rotary for the colonies under Mr. Gladstone. He is tin eminent sportsman, has  a.smull but good stable of race horses, as  well as a small fleet of racing yachts.  SOMK    KACTS    AHOUT    THE    VKSSKLS    AND  THE   TROPHY.  Fully a half million dollars has been  spent in this year's contest over the  America's (Jul). This includes the cost of  the four American cup-defenders and of  the Valkyrie. The Colouia, Pilgrim, and  .Jubilee cost about $80,000 apiece to build  and equip. The Vigilant cost about $100,-  000. This is more than litis ever before  been spent upon a yacht of her size. The  added cost of the Vigilant wtis because other bronze hull below the water-line.  This bronze is said to have cost $100 for  each plate, and it was built on the frame  like the plates of steel put on a man-of-  war. The bronze hull, which added a  fraction of a second to the yacht's speed  in a mile, cost $20,000.  The cost of the Valkyrie was somewhat  less than that of any of the other four  boats because of the cheapness of labor  iind material in Kngland.  Lord Dunraven, it has been figured,  could not send the Valkyrie over in the  wjiy he has- tit a less cost thau $500 por  week. This includes the wages of the  crew, provisions, wear and tear on the  yacht", with docking charges and transportation. She will be absent from Kngland a-ltogether about ten weeks, and to  make the race at the lowest possible estimate has cost lord Dunraven $o(XX), and  probably more, leaving out the boat's cost.  The contest will cost a gootl deal more  than $500,000, iind the intrinsic value of  the America's Cup at the present price of  silver is about $200.  The America's Cup is not a cup at all.  It is an ugly jug of no possible use or  beauty, and it is shaped like an old-fashioned" vinegar bottle. NoverthelessjMt is  the most precious yachting trophy in existence, as it represents the yachting supremacy of the world, and has a long and  interesting history. It lias never been in  Kuropo since captured by the America in  1851. The America's Cup is kept in a  vault iit Tiffany's jewelry store in New  York city. On its sides are engraved  records of all the races which have been  sailed for its possession. There are only  one or two more flat surfaces upon which  records of   races can  he engraved,   and  when those are occupied, it is a question  where future records can be put.  Tlie old America, it may be, remarked,  is still ii yacht in commission. She is a  fast boat' even in those days of modern  improvements. .For a long time she belonged to Ben Butler, and is now the  property of Paul Butler. When Ben  Butler was in the South during the war,  he heard of the America being sunk in  a river. After the war was over, he returned South and bought the America for  a song, had her raised and equipped, and  used her as a yacht. He afterwards discovered that while she was sunk, the  j lores of her wood became impregnated  with a kind of fine sand, and this rendered her impervious to any kind of  marine insect. In southern waters she  needed no copper sheathing, and the  gimlet-pointed worms that attacked her  found the edge quickly taken off their  boring apparatus.  The history of America's Cup is almost,  but not entirely, the history of international yachting. There have been eight  races for this trophy, and in all of them  the Americans have been successful.  There has not been one of these races that  did hot involve as a preliminary long correspondence, generally of a somewhat  acrimonious nature. Sometimes, as in  the case of lord Dunraven's first challenge,  it has been found impossible to arrange a  race, and sometimes, as in the case of Mr.  Ash bury and the Livonia, the race has  come near to being sailed in court instead  of on the sea.  It is hardly to be supposed the New  York Yacht Club intended to be anything  but fair and sportsmanlike in framing the  latest deed of gift by which the America's  Cup is held as a challenge cup for the  world, and which is the organic law under which races for it must be sailed; yet  an almost universal howl of disapproval  went up from yachtsmen on both sides of  the water when its provisions became  known. The Royal Victoria Yaclit Club,  believing that the deed of gift would prevent further challenge for the America's  Cup, offered a cup of its own for an international trophy, and carefully formulated  ti series of regulations to govern the races  for it. The storm of disapproval which  greeted the conditions laid down by the  Koyal Victoria Vaeht Club was second  only to that which hailed the latest deed  of gift.  So far in the history of yachting there  are two things which, though universally  desired, yachtsmen-have been unable to  arrive at���satisfactory measurement' for  time allowance and a satisfactory code of  .iute.rnaticmai.:, ^  raven, in a recent article in the North  American Review, 'proposed''that three  representative yachtsmen be chosen from  Kngland, and a like number from America, to meet in Paris and discuss the question of international racing thoroughly,  and to formulate a set of rules to govern  it. But the rules' formulated . in Paris  could never-be'applied to the America's  Gup, owing to the fixed conditions under  Which it must be raced for. The cup is a  trust property held by the New York'  Yacht Club for certain specific purposes,'  and must be governed by the deed of gift,  even if the cup is won by a foreign yacht  club, with all its limitations. It is true  that the ''mutual-agreement clause" of  the deed of gift has been found to be of  such elasticity that almost any arrangement satisfactory to both parties can be  made for a race for the cup, and that  under that mutual-agreement clause a  race might be sailed according to the  rules of the Paris conference; yet no nation would have a right to demand to be  allowed to sail by such rules for the  trophy, the deed of gift remaining forever the organic law regarding it.  Advocates Taking Away the Lawyers' Bread.  In advocating the abolition of the division or county courts in Ontario, a Toronto  paper says: "Why should the country  be invoked to settle a dispute between a  merchant and the man to whom he has  sold a suit of clothes? Let the merchant  be made to understand that he will not  have the machinery of the division court  to collect debts, and you will find him exorcising more caution in giving credit.  The sale of a suit of clothes is a small matter. The country should not be involved  in it at all. if the merchant who has the  clothes to sell and the man who wants to  buy them cannot make a bargain that is  final, then let there be no deal between  thein. The public is not concerned  whether the merchant sells his suit of  clothes or not. Let him assume all responsibility of letting his suit get out of  hi.s possession. If he chooses to let his  property pass to a scamp, that is his own  funeral." The cash system, in the smallest  business transactions at least, is the most  economical. On the credit system honest  people have to pay the debts of the good-  for-nothing and dishonest.  EDUCATED   BUT   NOT   PRACTICAL.  The Hand Does not Carry Out the Directions  of the Head.  One of the best known miners in Kootenay registered at the international hotel  this week, and one evening during his  stay he drifted into conversation with  other guests of the hotel on the question  of educated men as mine superintendents  and minors. Said he: "'1 never knew a  Freiberg man' that was any good when it  came down to attempting anything in a  practical way; they all knew how it  should be done, but none of them could do  it. The same holds good in regard to  geologists; they all know the formations  in which mineral should be looked for but  none of them ever iind it. The successful  mining superintendents arc not graduates  of milling schools; but fire, on the contrary, always men who began as laborers  in some mine. The men who find our  great mines are not geologists; but more  often are men who do not know granite  rfrom limestone. I contend that too much  learning on any subject unfits the learner  for obtaining the best results when practically engaged."  - One of his hearers ventured to remark  that education and practical work should  go together; that the workman who took  pride in hi.s trade always endeavored to  gain proficiency by study; that the one  great, difficulty encountered by all employers of labor was the finding of men  . who took an interest in their work; that  this lack of interest was the direct result  oflack of knowledge.  Another hearer maintained that the  worker who had a liberal education wtis  more likely to get to the front than the  worker lacking in education.  The miner, however, maintained that a  a. collegiate education unfitted a man to  follow any calling or business dependent  on practical results.  The Century Magazine for October has  an article on the apprentice system prevailing in the United States. It endeavors  to show  that while American  boys are  growing up in idleness, and are filling the  prisons, American  trades are controlled  by foreigners  whose sympathies are not  with   American   institutions,   and   asks,  "What is the remedy?"    It then goes on  to show that the remedy is in education.  Authorities are cited, one of whom says:  "There is common testimony,to the fact  of the decay of the system of .'apprentice-:  i^Tip^and.-^  modifications, are   the   same   the   world  over���the conflict between labor and capital, the rapid introduction of machinery,  and the changed conditions resulting in  all the producing and manufacturing industries.   With the gradual and almost  total extinction of apprenticeship,   labor-  has not only become unskilled, and nearly-'  dead  to  all   sense  of  professional  pride  and ambition, but too often dishonest, demoralized, iind brutal.   The consequences  are serious and far-reaching, and thoughtful persons everywhere are beginning to  seek a remedy.    As the system of apprenticeship was based upon a form of education,    we    naturally  seek   the   remedy  through the same agency."  The remedy is in the establishment of  technical schools, which range from the  manual-training instruction of-'children  up through" apprentice'iind artisan schools  to the high polytechnic or scientific institutions which take rank with the great  universities. The nations which have developed these beneficent institutions have  acted upon the idea that their children  should not only be educated to some useful employment, but that it is of the first  importance to a nation to develop to the  highest degree the mechanical talent of  its inhabitants. '  A Great Gold Field.  The estimated yield of the Ilandt. mines  in South Africa this year is a total of  1,500,000 ounces, which would be worth  about $2:3,000,000. Kac.li month litis shown  an advance of output except February.  In August the yield was 1.'}(', 00!). ounces.  South Africa is now the most prolific-  auriferous region of the world, but it litis  been only skimmed so far, there still being vast reef deposits to develop. One  thing is greatly in favor of the enterprise.  The milling is said to be conducted fairly  in the interests of the shareholders, and  the processes are the most economical  known, with the result that almost every  particle of gold is extracted, and the tailings, after treatment, are valueless.  sents, when that senator (Dubois) was in  the loins of his grandmother Lois." Nobody could throw any light on this'allusion. Mr. Dubois was inclined to think  that it pointed in some sort of an obscure  way to his French descent, but a Boston  newspaper correspondent heard of his  trouble and said to him: "Why, senator,  it was one of Mr. Ii oar's characteristic  Biblical allusions. Lois was the mother  of Timothy, and iu indicating that he was  so very much older than you, the Massachusetts sena.tor was paying you a very  delicate compliment." "Ah, I am glad  the senator intended it tis a compliment,"  said Dubois, much relieved; "1 have been  laboring every since yesterday under the  impression that it was a brutal assault."

Fdnionton Bulletin, 1st: "A party of  six men and seven saddle and pack horses  arrived on Friday last from Trail Creek in  the West Kootenay milling district in  British Columbia. They comprise three  Kennedy brothers and a Mr. Stewart who  remained at Kdinonton, while the other  two members of the party went 011 to  Athabasca. Landing. They came across  the mountains by the Crow's Nest pass.  They intend to take up land in this part  of the country.

Ill his remarks in the senate debate on  silver, Mr. Hoar, nettled at something  said by young Mr. Dubois of Idaho, endeavored to get back at him by referring  to bis extreme yoiitbfulness, iind quoting  ti well-known passage from Scott;.

Hoar's remarks to his colleagues: "I was opposed to the things!  which the present administration repre- I  He Destroys a Discovery that was  Liable to  Stimulate Fraud.  Dr. il. P. Barnuin, a chemist of Louisville, Kentucky, is tho man who invented  the celebrated ink-eraser, which caused so  much talk several years ago. In an interview with a reporter he gave the following interesting, facts:  "When I first got my ink-eraser completed 1 thought my fortune was made,  but 1 soon discovered that it was so conducive to crime that I suppressed its sale  and have always kept the secret to myself. I suppose it will die with me. This  eraser could positively erase all traces of  ink from any kind of paper. I remember  one man who wrote a letter to the Courier-  Journal, telling them that' he did not believe the account which they had published of the eraser." Some of the men in  the Courier-Journal office took some of  my erasing fluid and wiped all the ink out  of his letter except the signature. A  chock for $100 was then written above  the signature, and they went to the bank  and got the money. 111 a short time after  its introduction several crimes in Louisville, as well a.s elsewhere, had been committed by the aid of the eraser, and when  ti well-known young man in Louisville  perpetrated a fraud upon hi.s firm by its  use and went to California, I then determined never to allow any more of the  fluid to be manufactured.  "1 have, however, since donesome work  with it myself. At one time a number of  securities of the Falls City Bank of Louisville had been stolen, and the holders of  the bonds in the community got in the  habit of writing tlieir names across the  face.of their bonds, aud also a statement  that the bonds were .not good unlgss in-  (lorsed."But"-when "they"wiin'ted to dis-  posc of these bonds they found that nobody would buy them with the writing  across the face. They came to nie with a  rush and wanted me to-remove the writing. 1 had at one time $100,000 worth of  ��� those bonds, with the-agreement that if  any traces of ink-or the-fluid wore left I  was to buy each bond so defaced at its  face value, but .1-didn't have to buy any  of them." ,  Por Whom Do Women Dress?  The Boston Globe recently fired this interesting query at its readers: "For  whom do women dress?" The shot pro-'  voved a. broadside of opinions from a multitude of people. The question is one that  'always interests the public. A largo .proportion of American citizens 'hold that-  women'dress to plesi.se the men. Another  class, equally numerous, insist that they  ���project iind execute elegant toilets in  order to provoke the admiration and envy  of other women. The obvious truth is  that women clothe themselves in tasteful  and beautiful fabrics because they are  women. It is a fact to be thankful for  that all the fads of all the reformers in  creation can not reform the inherent delight of the civilized woman in beautiful  and graceful things, if she lived in it  country without a man-in it, she would  still regard the fit and hue of her garments as matters of essential importance.  Of course women are not unmindful of  the .opinion of the opposite sex. They  like admiration when it is respectful, and  they are a great deal happier when their  dress is cord hilly-praised by one -particular mail whose approbation they value  above most things terrestrial. But they  select their garb primarily, not to gain  masculine flattery, but in obedience to  the dominant instinct which makes the  modern woman a constantly refining and  uplifting force.  Pronounce it Val-kye-ree.  Megiirding the pronunciation of the  name Valkyrie, the New Y'ork Sun says:  "We arc informed that in Kngland the  name of lord Putiraven's yacht is pronounced-as if it were written Val-kyo-ree.  the 'y' in the second syllable having the  same sound a.s in lhe word why. Wi h  all due respect to lord Dunraven let. us  say that this is a very wrong pronunciation. Valkyrie is a Norse word and should  bespoken as Norsemen speak it. That is  as if it were written Val-kirry-ye." Kngiish speaking people, however, will give  Valkyrie flu; Kngiish pronunciation,  which is notiit all an incorrect thing'to do.  The Mine is Situated Less Than Five Miles  Prom Nelson, With Which it is Connected  by a Good Wagon Road, an Excellent Trail,  and a Telephone Line' That is Always in  Good Order.           The Hall Mines, Limited, magnates have  come iind gone, and actual work has once  more been resumed on what is likely to  be'one of the greatest mines in the,world..  The survey made for the tramway shows  that the distance from the Silver King to  the'water front, a mile below Nelson, is  little more than -17, miles.    The tramway  will not be built until spring, as the plans  must first  receive the approval   of   the  board of directors���aud the board meets  in London.    Between  _00 and 100 feet of  shafts, crosscut tunnels, and drifts will  be run during the winter, which will give  employment to forty-odd men. Additions  will also be made to the quarters of the  men iind a shaft-house erected.  A shaft will be sunk on the Kootenay  Bonanza; a drift run both ways from the  winze sunk in the main tunnel: and a  drift run both ways from the old shaft  ou the Silver King. These drifts will be  started .about halfway down 011 both the  shaft and the winze. Most of this work  will be done by contract.  Preparations are being made to ship a  hundred tons of the ore now in the ore-  house to Swansea. 'Wales; iind if navigation holds out on the Columbia river, further shipments will be made. All the ore  taken out this winter will be-carefully  sorted for shipment, which indicates that,  for ii time at least, the high-grade ore will  be shipped to Wales.  Mr. Neilson of Ayr, Scotland, who appears to be the managing director, has  left i'or home. Mr. JIarvey, the mining  engineer, litis also left for Colorado. Both  went out by way of Spokane. The  former gentleman is a practical man, and  works large iron iind coal mines in Scotland iind Kngland. Mr. Harvey is recognized iis one of the best practical mining  engineers in the country, and is now engaged in superintending mines in Colorado.  For;the present Mr. Croasdaile will act  sis resident " manager for the company.  Mr. R. Vuill will be foreman.  Routes that are of Great Benefit.  When at Nelson, captain Armstrong of  (���'olden stilted that the opening of the  steamboat transportation route south  from Fort Steele to Jennings. Montana,  had been of great benefit lo Kast Koolenay. It opened up that, section to prospectors, iind prospectors, apparently, all  come from the l'nited Slates. Vet, there  are people iu British Columbia, and some  of them iu high official position, who  would close every route leading to the  south ; would keep out the men who make  it possible I'or British subjects to live aud  thrive iu southeastern  British Columbia.  Cheap Labor Not Profitable.  As an instance of the unprofitableness  of cheap labor, the following is given :  Over iii ..Fast Kootenay is a gold-claim  that has more than a-local reputation.- It  was sold to 'a capitalist from -Ottawa', who  soon after buying it 'erected a. 5-stamp  mill on the property..' The Ottawa man,  like too many men from the Kast, imagined he could operate his mine and mill  with men willing to work for the wages  paid in.the-.Kast. When advised that an  amalgamator could not be had unless the  wages prevailing in the "West 'were paid,  he smiled and said: "Why, i.������can"get."a  good amalgamator right here in Golden  who will work for $2 a day." And he  hired his $2-a-day man.... The mill.'-'was  started up for.a trial run on ore thatga-vo  good assay returns. When the 'amalgam  ��� was received tit ('"olden,:if appeared all  right as-to quantity, but when retorted it  was all wrong. It did not contain even a  trace .of gold; but, instead, it carried a  good percentage of 'copper. The cheap  amalgamator had not sense enough to  galvanize the copper plates, iind if the  ore had carried $1000 iu free gold to the  ton not ii trace would have been saved.  The Ottawa man left for home in disgust,  iind is now attempting^to dispose of the  mill and mine to a Victoria syndicate.  Mining to be carried on successfully must  be directed by experienced-men, and experienced men well know that good  miners iind mill nien cannot be had unless  paid-, good .wages. But this fact-cannot  be pounded into the''cranium of the'average Kastern man who comes West-seeking  investments in mines.  Looking the Ground  Over.  John   Hendry iind   I.). J.  .Miimi. accom  panicd by a Mr. Guthrie and a Mr. Foley,  arrived  at  Kaslo this  week.    As  Messrs.  Hendry and Munii are two of the principal promoters of the Kaslo i^ Slocan Bail-  way Coiiinany. and Mr. Guthrie and Mr.  Foley railway men from St. Paul, if is  supposed that something may yet happen  in ii railway way roundabout Kaslo. Mi-.  .Mnun, accompanied by the company's  chief engineer iind the two St. Paul men,  has gone up the route of the proposed  line, and the party is expected back tit  Kaslo on Saturday. Mr. Guthrie, it is  said, is either now or litis been connected  with the Great Northern railway in a position requiring financial ability. Mr.  Foley is one of the firm of Foley Brothers,  a firm well able to  M.-iv   the  contracts,  built soon  handle large railway  road   be  built, and  A First Masquerade Ball.

THURSDAY "MORNING OCTOHKR I.. 1S!��  ONE   FOREIGNER    GOOD   AS   ANOTHER.  Premier Davie made a speech at Ivtun-  loops Jtist week in wliieh he referred to  the methods adopted to secure the building of the Nakusp <k Slocan  railway, a  railway  the building of which,  he said,  was an urgent necessity for the "opening  ������' up of the Kootenay mines and thebring-  " ing  of   trade  this  way,  as  there   was  ���' great danger of the trade being diverted  ���' into ti foreign country aud taken away  " from us."'    What trade did the premier  mean?   Did   he mean the grocery trade,  or the hardware trade, or the dry goods  trade, or the clothing trade?    If he did,  he  is  not "well  posted; for none of that  trade can possibly be diverted from Montreal, or Toronto, or Hamilton, in eastern  Canada, or  Victoria, in western Canada.  The protective duty imposed by the Dominion prevents the purchase of any of  the above mentioned lines of goods iu the  United States.    If the premier meant the  trade  in  ore,  lie  was  equally   tit   fault.  There tire no other markets than those of  the United States I'or the ores mined in  Kootenay.    The ores must of necessity he  .shipped   to  the  United  Slates,  iind   the  route by which they can  be shipped the  cheapest will result in working the greatest gooil   to   Kootenay.     The   people   of  Kootenay can see no difference in paying  freight rates that yield dividends to ra.il-  -way shareholders who live in'  l.uropo or  to railway shareholders  who live in the  United    States.      Perhaps    they    would  rather   pay  dividends   to  the  hitter,   for  did not the premier say in that Kamloops  speech  that  the'capital   to develop iind  ���work our mines is expected to come from  the United States?   .If the people ofthe  United States are the only ones willing to  risk 'money  in. the   development of our  mines, surely they are a.s fairly entitled  to the profits to be made in transporting  the ores mined as are the people of l_urope  yvho are unwilling to take such risks.   To  ��� the.people of Kootenay, one foreigner is  as'good its another.  THE   CUT   IN   WAGES.  The men., and ..".corporations., operating  inines in Nelson and Trail Creek districts  ���������have cut the wages of miners and laborers  from $3.50 and $3 a day to..$3 and $2.50 a  day. No reasons are given for--making  the cut, other than that any number of  miners and laborers can be got to work  for-the. reduced-wages. In other words,  the mine operators have taken advantage  of tlie times and the necessities of the  men. This will surely lead to trouble in  the future, for miners and laborers, when  their necessities are relieved, will insist  on'a higher rate of wages. Tmo Trijujnk  maintains now, and will always maintain, that the rate of $3.50 a day for  miners and $3 a day for laborers is not  unfair to the operator and is its low as  the miner and laboring man can work for  in this country, in order to save anything  for a "rainy day" or for old age. The introduction of foreign capital may be a  blessing, but when it insists on reducing  wages to the level .paid in the "Did Country," or in "the Mast," it is a curse.  THE   PARTY   OF   PROGRESS.  One of the strongest arguments used by  the friends of premier Davie when advocating the retention of that gentleman in  power is that'his party is progressive;  antl now we are beginning to believe  them, for did not the premier use the following words in his late Kit m loops speech:  Did he not say in referring to the provincial guarantee of interest on the Xakusp  it Slocan construction bonds, that "it is a  " matter I'or grave consideration whether  ���' if is not infinitely more to the advan-  " Itige of the province to guarantee both  ." principal and interest than interest  " simply?" Did lit; not say further, "that  '��� in arranging for litiancing the Nakusp  "' road the government, whilst giving the  " guarantee as authorized by the act,  " have provided that the bonds shall re-  " main in escrow until the act can be  " amended by lhe legislature?"  This is ti, progressive policy, indeed.  From this time on, we suppose, the Davie  government will see to it that both the  principal and the interest on railway  Jboiid.s will be guaranteed by the province,  that is, if the railway is a branch of the  Canadian Pacific. No other railway need  apply, except, perhaps, the British Pacific.  Would it not be a more progressive policy  for the government to own the railways  after the province pays for their building?  Ik the Englishmen who are so anxious  to win the America's cup would only give  their yachts a name tha-t people could understand without hunting up ancient lore,  they might stand a show of winning it.  Such names as the "("enesta." "Galatea,'"  and " Valkyrie" handicap a good boat.  IJ K poll is the war the Democratic party  in the United States was controlled by  the shi veholders of the south. Today it is  controlled by the money lenders of the  north. Over 800.000 lives were lost iind  more than .$5,000,000,000 were spent in  overthrowing the siaveliolding oligarchy.  Will ti like sacrifice be required to overthrow the plutocrats of today.  Tiik Piicific Canadian is the name of a  weekly pa]ior recently started at New  "Westminster. The only wonder is: Why  was it ever started?  Tiiti average reader will not understand  thh paragraph, but tho average printer  and newspaperman will. The swineish  disposition of a newspaper owner win  always be distinguished by the "leanness"'  or "fatness" of the type in which his  paper is printed. Tho Vancouver AVopld,  when its type Avas set by printers, had  the "leanest" faced type in the province:  now that its type is set by machines it  uses the "fattest" laced matrices furnished by the machine manufacturers.  Tiik great newspapers of the United  States and Canada, with but few exceptions, are now in the hands of corporations that run them tis commercial ven-  tures. All great editors tire either  dead or inu/./.Ied. Great newspapers tire  no longer read "to see what-Morace Greeley  " says," or "to see Avliat (ieorge Brown  " says," but arc read for the news they  contain. Not one reader in a hundred is  influenced or guided by the expressions  found on the editorial page, for tho reader  well knows that the expressions there  found never A'oice the wishes of the  people, when their Avishos conflict with  the interests of the groat corporations.  And that conflict is apparently irrepressible. The groat, newspapers are now  simply spreaders of news, not disseminators of ideas.   Tin-: Vancouver World announces that  it appears in a new dress every day.  Judging from appearances, tho dresses are  "misfits."       ___ ;'  Tun United States is no longer a 'Republic, except in name only. It is now a  monarchy, much more so than is England.  Grover I. is king, and he is doing Avhat  kingly rulers in Europe have not dared do  in late years, that is, sell official position  ���for a money consideration. For the suin  of $50,000,"paid by J. .1. Van Allen, Mr.  ���Vii-u Allen has been appointed minister to  I'taly. Of course, Mr. Van Allen did not  pay'that, amount, of money directly to  Grover I., but its payment indirectly  bellied place Grover in an official position  to which he should never have been  elected. Mr. 'Van Allen contributed $50,-  000 to the National Democratic Committee  last fall on the one condition that he be  appointed minister to Italy.  Cleveland Cracks His Whip.  On Saturday last president'Cleveland,  through secretary Carlisle, ordered the  advocates of the bill repealing the Sherman act to try the-effects of a continuous  session in the senate, and on "Wednesday,  of this week senator Voorhees wtis to  make the attempt. That the attempt  Avill produce important results can hardly  be doubted by anyone familiar with the  situation. The opinion expressed is that  there will be a compromise of so nie character agreed to and put through simply  to extend the Sherman I;iav for a definite  period'with reduced monthly purchases.  This plan seems to be taking shape as the  most likely of the various propositions  to receive approval. The proposition to  include the bond purchase is also receiving  attention iind the present indications are  that while many Democrats may not  agree to such a proposition, it may be put  tli rough with I he assist a nee of the .Republicans. Senators from silver producing  states are constantly consulted and advised with as to tei ms of agreement, but  they will not be .allowed to dictate in the  matter, of compromise.  Many Married People on the Anxious Seat.  A. decision by judge Sheppard of the  Bowie county district court makes illegal  over one thousand marriages in fhecoitnty  of Piowie, Texas. For more than ten years  prior to .January 1st last it has been the  custom of county clerks, for the general  convenience of people desiring to marry,  to fill out a marriage license in-blank iind  leave the same with the justice of the  peace in each precinct where they were  supplied to persons making application  I'or such license, the justice filling in the  names desired and collecting the legal  fees. It is estimated that more than a  thousand couples residing in Bowie county  were married with such licenses during  the last decade, including also a number  of persons of the highest social standing  in'J'exarkana. It was on the question of  the legality of such licenses and marriage  ceremonies that the judge rendered the  decision. The court holds such marriages  t,o be irregular and illegal, and consequently void. The case will be appealed  immediately to the supreme court.  BIG   PURSES   BUT   NO   MONEY.  The Good Old Days Compared With Those  of Today.  The Corbett-Mitchell match has revived  interest in prize-lighting, and tis the match  is for $10,000 ii side and a $10,000 purse, it  is of interest to know what the best men  of the "good old days" fought for. "Billy"  Madden, who has quit the ring for the  more congenial and profitable work of  writing for the newspapers, tells what he  knows of past and present fighters and  fights iu ;i recent letter to the Buffalo  Express.   What ;i mighty lot of difference there is  between the prize-fighter of today and his  prototype of ten or twenty years ago!  And wlitit has caused this great difference?  Well, in my humble opinion, it is better  times and a change from London prize-  ring rules to Marquis of Queonsberry.  Those were good old days when men  fought under London prize-ring rules. It  wtis "throw him down, McClosky," and  knock the spots out of him; do tiny thing  in I act save gouge his eyes out or chew  his ear oil". And these old rules were the  rules to try a man's courage and endurance. It was almost a rough-and-tumble  fight, with a few little pleasantries barred  such as I have already spoken of. Vou  get your man down aud then try your  best to do him. I do not think the rules  now generally recognized in boxing contests show tho true courage and endurance  possessed by a fighter. They rather bring  out cleverness and good lighting. Still,  on the whole, I would rather see the men  light under them. A bare-knuckle light  under London nnes was sometimes a A'ery  rough affair. I have seen fights that,  hardened as I was, or should be, made me  burn'away sick tit heart, and they were  fights that I ditl not have a dollar on. f  have seen men ripped by spikes in a horrible milliner about the icgs. When I  seconded Jack Dempsey in his light with  ���Johnny Reagan on Long Island, lioagiin  cut hii'ii until his logs wore bleeding from  tt dozen wounds. Thai fight, by the way,  netted Dempsey but $(3S, instead of the  $1000 that was to be paid. Well, a fighter  AViis lucky in those "good old days" if he  did not get shoved into jail after the  battle  'Why. I remember fighting in New  Orleans a chap named Tom .Hart, iu the  same ring by. the way that Mace and  Coburn fought. After licking my man I.  got $12.50 as my share. My rival wtis  completely blinded and had to pay si boy  50 cents to take him home. Still he was  better off than I. for the crowd passed  liho hat around and collected $00 for him.  I fought another fellow, a middle-weight  champion, named .Jim Taylor. After  fighting 55 rounds with bare knuckles of  course." 1 dropped my man, and for that I  got $5 and a new coat. I would have considered myself lucky to have got oil' with  that but I had to be arrested and thrown  in jail.  Oh, those were good old flays and no  mistake. The sports would makea grand  bluff and- put up big sums of stake money  iind .purses, but'always with a string tied  to 'them. When the fight was over the  string was pulled and back .came the  money. The poor devils who had been  hammering each other like tigers with a  gigantic, purse ���dangling alluringly before  their eyes, Avouid be given a $5 or $10 bill  and-told to go and blow themselves.  Directly there was no money in lighting  then, but indirectly there was. The gamblers would take tiie successful lighters in  toAV and have them around their places  for attractions. They would give them  interests, too, or help them to open a  "pub," so they weren't so badly off after  all.  Then there was another way to make  money���by a benefit. Jn those days'  IJeenaii and Morrissey would make as  much money in that way, aye and even  more, than a fight would bring. But woe  to the poor chap who was not ji star. He  livedi a hand-to-mouth life aud its pretty  much the same today. Today the champions are the people and it was the.same  yesterday.  It is a".matter of history that Sayers  and 1-J.eenan fought for $1000 and Heeiian  had to pay his own expenses to .England.  W'iien Bi'lly Edwards and Tom Collins  fought for the light-weight championship  they fought for "-iKJOO. They fought sev  oral hours until the night came and what  did they get for it? Six months on the  island. ' "Oh, those were good old days."'  I might go on. and-mention ii thousand  and one similar instances, but those just  quoted are sufficient. No .inducement  was -needed then to make men fight then;  they were til ways ready at tho .drop of a  hat*.  .And it wasn't hard to make a reputa-  tiition then. There were not so many  lighters and consequently the men were  not tried out so much as. now. Vou had  to work to get your reputation, of course,  but win one light iind you had it. It was  easy going after that.  Vou cannot compare the lighter of the  I last with those of today. Like several  other things, yesterday is better than today. And the reason, therefore, is that  the old-timer hit straight punches, lie  could not swing tis today because he had  nothing on his hands to save him. A  straight puncher, therefore, is superior to  the man who swings. Today glove-lighting is like-sand-bagging. Vou hit a man  in the right place and he drops dizzy and  unconscious.  Still, there wtis more or less swinging  done, and I remember seeing one light in  which but one straight blow wtis struck.  It wtis between Dwyer iind Elliot. They  threw tlieir hands "at each other a.s if  they were throwing bricks. It was the  artist in those days thatgavo the straight  punches and it was the artist that won  the light. And the .artist when knocking  around would always have some slow guy  traveling with hini,'so that he could show  off the better.  Fighting might, be called a game of billiards. Vou are a good man and you go  against someone who is flower, so that  you have a dead cinch. Go against a  better man and you are left at the post.  It's tho speed that makes the class. The  good man hits more chance of going down  now because the inducements are greater.  A New Railway Under Construction.

So. the good mini runs  up against some other good man. who.  from lack of business management has  not been brought before tJie public, and  he gets thrown.  Fighting hits assumed abusiness-likeair  lately, anrl all because there is money in  it. A man witJi a reputation gets boomed  and gets money. There are iots of good  men never brought before the public and  there are lots of men who are no gootl  that are.  Take Hilly Plinimer, for instance. He  should have been on fop long ago. Why  was he not? J_eciiu.se of lack of business  management. Then there is .Martin  Flaherty of Boston, a, clever little chap  who licked J,obby Bums and who litis a  draw to his credit with George Dixon.  Me is liable to be a.s good as the best, but  yet he is in tlie background been use there  was no one to bring him out.  Jt's the manager in these days on Avhom  the fighter depends. It is the manager  who makes the money come his man's way.  always providing his man-is a good one.  You've got to be like Barnuin. aud not  only advertise them, but do it in a business like manner.  Coming back to old-timers, it is curious  to note that the champions were men  around live feet nine or ten inches tall.  They had more vitality iind endurance,  iind the f.oudon rules enabled them to  show their qualities. There of course,  wtis the invariable exception. Tom Myer  was a big ma,n and a gootl one, too.  Then there was Ned (.'Baldwin, who  stood six feet live and one-half inches.  Ned was a lure'un. He beat the best of  them. I remember the time ho boxed a  friendly bout with -John Dwyer. He let  tho latter fool around until he got fresh,  then ho simply knocked him down Avith a  smash right-straight from the shoulder.  O'Biildwin challenged Mace at one time.  The latter was forty years old and champion- of the world. lUace smiled gently  iind said: ''Neddy, do you want to light  your father"-1" Mace was only ten years  the elder, but his remark carried him  through. In my opinion, Mace Avas the  cleverest lighter in the world. lie was  also a rare gootl fellow. .Either way there  was not .10 per cent difference between  liitn and James ,1. Oorbett.  .John L. Sullivan was the greatest Mar-  'quis of Queensberry rules lighter in his  (lay tiie world has ever seen. He was like  a tiger, quick and strong. Another man  whom 1 think can lick anybody at his  Aveight, Marquis'of'Queensberry rules, is  .lack McAulifl'e. He is a wonder and excels anybody at that style of fighting if  he is in form. .1 had a somewhat turbulent experience'the time that Joe McAulifl'e fought Frank -Shi-viir. in England.  .Both men were arrested after the fight,  which, by the way, would not have come  off had not the earl of .Lonsdale and  Richard K. Fox guaranteed to see myself  and McAuliffe safely through. 1 was on  the witness stand, and they tried to prove  by me that tiie affair wtis a prize light.  "A prize light, gentlemen," J said, "no,  indeed, ft Avas a boxing exhibition'legalized by law." The learned council thought  different and tried to show that because  one man was knocked down several times  that it Avas a prize'light. I .agreed that  tlie man was knocked clown several times  and told how McAuliffe and 1. drank  several bottles of beer after the light and  in the morning. His lordship on the bench  leaned back iind exclaimed: "Ditl you  drink all that beeh, deji.li nie!" He wtis  horrified to think we should drink beer,  why .1 do not know. The jury disagreed,  and on the next trial everybody was discharged. Since that time there lias been  no trouble in pulling off lights in England. They can't convict them because  it's only a boxing exhibition, you know*.  A man seldom gets badly hurt in a prize  fight', anyway, if he is trained, lie must  be trained, however, and be a well man.  Suppose you were to run 100 yards tomorrow. Vou might drop dead. It's the  sumo with the lighter, if he goes into the  ring untrained, a blow in the right place  might kill him. In training, a man should  work when he feels well. Scratch it when  you don't. Eat anything-you want iind  drink anything save "booze." Again,  there sire some men who could light better if they did not train, and that is because they don't know how to train; they  overdo it. Another thing which may be  worth taking note of. 1 have seen every  fighter of prominence in the ring, and I  have seen them all fight like suckers at  times iind all because they got rattled.  And don't forget that the straight  punch is the proper way to light. It's the  way to win. Swinging is like long-distance telephoning. Take the ease of  Dixon and I'limnier and you have in in a  nutshell.    Mica Found in the Rockies.  Edmonton Times, "ith: '���Donald McDonald, ii I'm' trader, who has been bartering with the Indians I'or several  months, returned from the Jasper pass in  the Hoeky mountains last Friday evening, bringing with him some excellent  snnij'les of mica.   Reports from the In  dians always lead to the belief that the  mineral was im existence there, but it is  only now that there is tiny tangible evidence that it is to be found in large quantities. The samples brought to town  measure about ten inches in length, half  tin inch thick iind seven inches wide: are  of tt line quality and very translucent,  almost transparent. They are quite  equal to the highest-priced mica in the  market and tire quite free from smoky-  ness. Another sample they brought away,  said to be ;i very large one. was bartered  to an Indian for three martin skins,  worth $(i. There are said to be tons of  mineral where these .samples came from,  sticking out of the rock in all directions.  Some are thin and of a. redish color,  others tire deeply imbedded in the rock  and are very dark, owing to their thickness. Some of the largest pieces measure  IS inches in length. 12 inches wide, and S  inches deep: but maybe larger, as these  are only tlie measurements that appear  ou the surface. The find appears lo be a.  good one iind much interest 1ms been centered in it bv our citizens."

A STRANGE TALE OF INDIA.  I had joined a parly in lhe hope ol' a  low days' sporl in thu hills near Aniiil-  pore: bnfc on the seeond day out. lhe accidental discharge ol' a #uii in the hands  of a careless young Irish lienteininb made  tin end of my " bush-beating," and nearly  ma.de an end of nie. My native servant,  by sonic inexplicable, means, discovered a  bungalow in tlie midst of the wilds���the  home of tin Iinglish gentleman, a. retired  army surgeon, who, for reasons best  known to himself, (put the society of men  and lodged like a bittern in ���'solitary and  'waste places." Thither I wtis etirried.  For a week my life hung on a thread; but  thanks' to a strong constitution and careful nursing, 1 pulled through, and soon  found myself convalescent.  My host proved a must tigreetiblc companion:' We had many tastes.in common,  and found pieasa n t topic for cou versation  as we sat smoking our cheroots on the  broad veranda. One evening, while arguing on the ���respective merits of a twelve-  bore or a five-hundred-express rifle as'the  best means of bringing down big game,  the doctor was called away.  Left to myself. I sought amusement in  Avatching the movements of a white herein  that stalked awkwardly about in the  shallow po.ols that lay on the lawn. The  rain fell in gentle pnttoriugs. A slight  breeze stirred the vines about the pillars  and rustled the fringed palm leaves overhead. How peaceful and quiet it was!  The splash of the rain aud the faint  sounds of the rustling foliage were till  that broke the surrounding stillness.  Where he came from, I cannot tell: but  all tit once, through the faint blue smoke  of my cheroot, appeared a little withered  ��� fakir peering at nie from under the loose  folds of his dirty turban. Mis skinny ,  brown body wtis naked, stive the presence  of a. piece of tiger-skin wrapped about his  loins iind a belt that ran across his body  from shoulder to waist.' He was in uttering to himself, but the only words that I.  could catch were "Brahma, Brahma,  Radhe-fitsee."  Surprise nitide me speechless. 1 simply  stared at the wizened face aud glittering  black eyes, wondering what he was going  to do. The sound of the.swinging purdah  told of Walworth's 'return.  ".Did you think that .1 had forsaken  you?" he said, ligh ly; "Thlira's interviews are interminable. Me is as long-  winded as a tipsy Irishman."  1 halt-turned toward him while he was-  speaking. As he came around and resumed his chair, I said, iu tin undertone:  "What do vou think of this fossil?"  "What fossil?" he asked.  "The one before us," I replied, turning  and looking at the place where fakir had  siood. No fakir wtis there. On the  gravel walk lay a httlf-coiled cobra. Walworth sttiited to his feet and called for  JMarja to bring him a gun. The cobra lay  quiet for ii moment, as if in contemplation of the situation, then, at the sound  of approaching feet, with slow and graceful movement tend erect head, slid across  the sodden grass and disappeared through  iin opening under the veranda.  " Rather a dangerous fossil," said Walworth, eyeing me curiously; "the men  must keep a watch for him. Vou area  cool one, I must confess, my lad."  "I was not alluding to the snake," replied I; "I had reference to the fakir. I  wonder what became of the poor wretch.  The cobra frightened him away, I suppose. What are you about?"

"A charm for his snakeship," said my  host, laughing; "a cloud of aromatic incense ami a serenade on the toumril."  But neither the incense nor the seductive strains of the toumril were sufficiently potent to call the cobra from his  covert.  "That no time cobra." said Maria : sahib  saw fakir, bub all at once no fakir, only  snake.    JMarja knows."  His tones were mysterious. I smiled  and looked at his master. "A metamorphosis, eh?" Walworth nodded. "A clear  case of Theosophy. Pythagoras at ti slight  discount." 1 continued. Walworth looked  grave. lie dismissed the servant with a  wave of his hand, threw away his cigar,  which had gone out, shifted his position  slightly and leaned more comfortably in  his chair. ~    _   -  "Vou are skeptictil," he said. "Listen  to what 1 have to tell you; perhaps then  you will'believe."  I was a much younger man. than.you  when 1. came to India. 1 was surgeon of  the Fusileers. Shortly after we were  stationed at the fort, I was invited. tt> an  entertainment given by a native nobleman at his palace in the city.. The scene  reminded me of the "Arabian Nights."  Oriental magnificence was mingled witli  lOuropean elegance. We were received in  an .open court-yard, spread with cream-  coloreel Vtic rugs, in the center of which  a fountain phiyeel in a white .marble  basin, cooling the air with its perfumed  s| >ra y. 1 ha I ted a t the u pper step, of the  stairway and stootl leaning, wilh one  hand on the broad railing.'watching the  kaleidoscopic scene before me. Our colonel iind his wife stopped a. moment to  speak to me. As they turned to go Mrs.  Boh Ion's name was called, and, a little  lower down, with a screen of palms and  flowers for a background, was a young  girl. 1 thought I had never seen one so  beautiful.  She was dark, but. her skin was pale,  transparent brown, Hushed with the crimson of a rose leaf. Her 1 ijss were carmine,  opening, as she smiled, over teeth as white  tis pearls. Her soft, histerless black hair  wtis drawn up from her temples and  e:aught back by a comb 'of gold filigree.  Her eyes were chirk, soft, atui velvety.  "So you were going to '.pass nie unnoticed!" she said in the sweetest voice  possible.  "Why. iViiditt ! what are you doing here  alone?    When did you return?"  "Today.    I am not alone;.   Papa is there  the   first   pillar  speaking   to   general  Days of sunshine followed. i\Iy wife  chattered and laughed like a paroquet.  Poor child ! she was homesick.  1 was waiting in my gharry, one evening for a friend who was to drive with me  to tin outpost ji. few miles from tho station. As 1 entered his compound. J noticed a, bevy of ladies at Chofah-ha/.ree  on the veranda. Not in a mood to join  them, 1 drew it]) under a tree antl sent my  boy to the house. I was .sufficiently, near  to hoar their voices, and the conversation  was distinctly audible above the clatter  of silver and china. As a matter-of-fact,  uninterested Benedict .1 paid no attention  totheirchiitterunt.il 1 heard ��i. voice, rendered shrill-by susprise. exclaim:  "Naida Howe married ! Groat heavens!  Who is the unfortunate man? Me must  have been either a. stranger or a lunatic.  What did you all mean by permitting  him to marry her? 'Was no one kind  enough to warn the poor fellow?"  What the devil did (he woman mean?  I strained my ears to catch the reply.  "A warning would have done him no  good. He was the most infatuated man J  ever saw. Love wrapped him as with a  garment. And. besides, it never does (o  burn one's fingers with other people's  fires. I (hire say they will get along;  Xaida. is very peculiar, but she is a very  sweet girl."  "���Peculiar!'    I should say so._  Heaven  delivei "    At that moment Kirk came  out, and we drove a way.    All the evening  the echo of those dreadful   words rang in  my  ears.     Great God!   what did   it   all  moan;  1 reached home with a .strange foreboding of evil. I felt heavy and oppressed.  The lusters sparkled in taint gleams that  filled the anteroom with languorous light.  It wtis so still you might have fancied that  death (iiled the place. By the shining  panels on the wall hard by the bay window, I caught sight of a jeweled hand  toying with the folds of the curtain.  The red glint of the gems sparkled on the  dusky skin. I called her name softly,  "Xaida!"  "Ah!"  She arose iind pushed the curtain aside  iind came languidly toward me. There  was a peculiar expression in her eyes.  She stared'at nie for it, second of time, and  then, before I could say a word, glided  front the room. Her handkerchief had  fallen. 1. raised it from the floor; a faint,  subtile odor emanated from its folds. I  cast it from nie���1 can't tell why���and  crossed over to the window. A pale  moonlight .lay on the lawn, and the  shadows of the shrubbery lay in dee])  contrast to the silvery sheen. The punka  boy was asleep on the grass, with my  Irish setter beside him. I was about to  call and arouse him, when out into the  moonlight  from   the   black   shade-.of a  her face between my hands, looked into  her eyes. Their expression Im filed me. I  gently kissed her lips. She put out her  hands and pushed me from her.  "Where is Gurgah?" she said, in a  husky whisper.  Some one was already bendingover her.  The ayah's thin arms lifted her up and  carried her to her bed chamber. I heard  her scream aloud and bent her hands upon  the wall.  Wtis she mad? The fearful thought  darted like lightning through my brain.  I went to the door and looked in. Her  eyes were roaming here iind thereabout  the room. Gurgah was leaning over her,  chafing her hands and crooning a low,  soothing song. "My presence secnied to  irritate her: she turned away when she  met my gaze, buried her head iu the pillow, and lay there with her face downward. I diii not want to torture her. I  went to my own room.  In the morning, to my great surprise, I  found her on the veranda. No sign of  hist night's excitement was visible. She  was endeavoring to nuike Taio, her pug,  sit erect tind hold a bit of biscuit on his  nose.  ���'I am putting the stupid fellow through  ii course of training," she cried, gayly, tis 1  came upon the .scene. 'Her voice was  sweet and clear, and told of no pain or  distress. She arose from lier stooping  posture, thrust her arm in through mine,  and said:  "Let us take a walk through the compound, dearest. I want to hear the birds  sing before breakfast. I wonder." she  went on. as we walked along under the  pa.lni shade, "if you are my soul's affinity?"  "Of course," 1 replied. "We would not  have fallen in love so soon and married if  an a-ffhiity had not existed between us."  "Vou do no tpiite understand nie.  Jontio. I mean celestial affinity���a bond  that will last beyond time."  Her   look    wandered    off    into   space.  Presently she turned her eyes up to mine.  "John." she said, "do you believe in the  progress of souls?"'  "I have never given the subject a  thought, so I can not say. I believe in  the progress of bodies," 1 replied lightly.  "Vou have more faith in materialism  than in spirituality," she continued,  gravely. ".Jiva. is more potent that Rupa.  Burn the body, and the soul (lies back to  the great soul from which it was originally borrowed. Linf.fa Sharira is an  ethereal duplicate of the physical body,  it guides Jiva in its work on physical particles and builds up the shape which these  assume.    Vou should study, John."  I smiled.  "Wisdom, thy name is Naida !  Wifelet, whence came all of this learning  ���is Gurgah the deep well from which vou  draw?"  She resumed, speaking.slowly. "Adonai,  TUG-OF-WAE   CHAMPIONS.  Western Ontario Furnishes the Brawny  World. Beaters.  In1 the ���rich and important agricultural  county, of Oxford, iu western Ontario,  which, by the way,'is the political home  of sir Oliver Mowat, premier of that  province, there is a very large Scotch element, men of great strength, physically  and mentally, whose prowess in many  ways is coincident with the history oi"  Upper Canada.  West Zorr.'i, a Scotch township in Oxford, turns out (he best specimens of  brawny tind muscular manhood in the  country. Five of these strong men have  been banded together for some years as  "The Zorr.i Tug-of-war Team," and they  now hold the championship of America,  having won it in the international competition held in Chicago in August. The  team is composed of William JI. Mmiro.  who is six feet one inch in height and  weighs IH8 pounds: Alexander Chirk, who  is six feel and two inches and weighs _0(i  pounds; Ira Iluininason, who also stands  six feet tincl two inches, aud weighs IU!)  pounds; Robert iMcLeod, who is six. feel  two tind one quarter inches tall and  weighs 197 pounds; and Robert Mcintosh,  the sturdy "anchor," who is six feet and  an inch in height and tips the beam til  215 pounds.  The team pulls everything its own way,  and acknowledges no peer in the world.  By the way, it is quite as invincible tis  the Little Premier. When captain Sutherland tind his' victorious quintette returned from Chicago with the handsome  cup emblematic of the American championship they wero met til'the Ingersoll  depot with a band of music and escorted  to a, leading hotel, where a banquet and  a. cord hi L welcome awaited them.

I callei  her, fell in love with her, proposed to,  married her.  Her lather was tin Knglishmai  of one of the middle districts; her mother,  some said, was a Spaniard, others said  she was an I talian, and some whispered  that she was an Indian Heguni. Little  cared I what the mother was, I loved her  ;is my very soul.  The first month of my married life was  passed iu unalloyed happiness. All the  hours were golden hours. The paradise  lost to old lather Adam seemed restored  to nie. But by and by a cloud no bigger  than a man's hand tippeared on the horizon. I was cognizant of a change in  Naida,. She was alternately very quiet  aud very restless. She was nervous and  out of trim. She would start iind shiver  when the clock chimed.or murmur blankly  and shudder if a door slammed.  "What is it, Naida?" I asked one day.  "Vou ii re not yourself. What is the mat-  tor with you?"  She glanced wearily at me. "I hardly  know. I am afraid I tun ti little homesick.  I think I want ('urgah."  " Who is (.iurgah '���"  ".My ayah."  li.  Why  didu t  ������ Vou shall  have Ourga  you speak of her before?"  The next day I found a small, dark  woman in a snowy garment, with a grave  countenance enlivened by a nose-ring and  ear-plates, squatting on the Moor beside  Naidu's   hammock.     Jt    was   the  ayah.  clump of caliidiuins, sprang the graceful  form of an aniinal.--.lt streaked ..across  the ground in sinuous track; the moon  showed its tawny, yellow hide spotted  brown.    It was tt- chotah.  Alarmed for the boy, I jumped through  the window, and, -'catching him by the  shoulder, dragged him to. his feet. Hi.s  teeth chattered and his dark face grew  livid.  "The chetah. sahib! That chetah has  been running about the bungalow nearly  all week. Gurgah say chetah hurt nobody: bull no trust him."  1 sent immediately for the men-servants  of the establishment, tind set them as  guard over the bungalow. Then I went  to seek Naida.  I called her name softly, not wishing to  alarm her, but no answer came to my  tender call. 1 opened the door. A pale  blue light burned in a silver sconce that-  hung on the w.ill. Tho moonbeams fell in  through the open window and mingled  with the light of the lamp. A,faint white  smoke hung over the further corner of the  room. I looked at the couch; it was  empty. I glanced about the room: noonc  was there. Where were thoy���Naida iind  her nurse? Could they be out on the  lawn? Already I fancied the murderous  teeth and talons of the chetah tearing the  ��� . i delicate Ilesh of my   darling; perhaps at  i judge that moment he wtis sucking her life-  blood. I rushed out of the bungalow,  shouting her name, Naida, Naida, Naida!  Followed by a linll'-do/.en natives, I hurried over the compound, but we saw  neither wife nor ayah. Nearly frantic. I  wtis returning to the house. In front of  the bungalow I saw a white object: it  was the nurse.  "Whore is your missy?" I cried, grasping her arm.  She rested her glistening eyes on my  lace while she deliberately answered:  "Missy iu the bungalow, in her own  room."  "The chetah. the chetah!" cried the men  behind me.  ������Where?" I called, excitedly.  "There, on lawn, close by bungalow."  A wild yell tind the scream. " Ho jumped  iu missy window; he jump in missy window."  In tin instant 1 wtis at Niiida's door. I  flung it open. No chetah waste In; scon:  but on the foot of the couch sal my wife,  gasping breathlessly aiidstariiig wildly  about her.  "Darling." I cried, "where have you  been?     Are   vou   hurt?     Where   is   the  dissolveth   and   resunieth: in  His  are the dual powers of all things,  monad has the potency of twain,  is Twain in'One."  "What  is till   this  rigmarole?"  bursting into a merry laugh.  J-Ier eyes filled with tears.  ���   "Vou should not ridicule nie. John,'  said.  I did not want to hurt her feelings, so I  quickly replied:  "You are too much for nie, little woman.

Come, Ictus go tind see what the cook has  provided."  The following week was one. of tumult  tmd commotion. The entire station was  aroused. A chetah was making the rounds  of the compounds, and more than one  person wtis terrified by the sight of the  tawny beast creeping stealthily about  their, promises. ..Major Dent surprised it  asieep in the forks of a' toddy tree back  of the hospital, but before he could secure  a weapon the animal managed to.escape.  Naughty children required no fictitious  bugbear to terrify them into good behavior now: the very mime of this notorious  visitor subdued the little culprits to  prompt obedience and abject penitence.  At night till bungalows were closed.  .Recollecting Naida's'terror the night of  the chetah's visit to us, I forbade the subject mentioned in her presence. I provided weapons for the men-servants and  kept a const.'intguard on the bungalow.  Late one night, as I was returning from  ti visit to ti sick man at the hospital.

The directors of the company that is  building the Nakusp & Slocan railway ncld a meeting at  Nakusp on Monday last. They afterward went over to  New Denver to decide as to the final route through the  townsite. It is reported that they have decided to build  through New, Denver, the depot to bo near tho center of  the McGillivray addition.  A postoftice has been opened at Three  Korks, with li. H. Pitts as postmaster.   The postoftice at  ��� Balfour; will be discontinued, owing to the removal of  the postmaster, C. W. Husk, to Victoria for the winter.  Tiie steamer Kootenay is reported disabled, and that too when there is an immense amount of  freight at Revelstoke awaiting shipment south. There  are over twenty cars of miscellaneous freight at Revelstoke for points on Kootenay lake, besides 1S0O tons of  rails for the Nakusp & Slocan railway.  Mrs. Hugh Madden of Ivakusp has re-  tured from a visit to relatives in the province of Quebec,  and "llughie" now dandles his first born as if he never  did anything else in his lifetime.  Among   the   tourists   passing  through  Nelson this week was captain F. P. Armstrong of (jolden.  No man in Kast Kootenay is better entitled to a newspaper paragraph, for he has been untiring in his oH'orts to  develop the transportation interests of Kast Kootenay.  lie is now manager of a steamboat and tramway line between Uolden and the upper waters of Kootenay river.  Captain Armstrong was acconi])anicd by Mr. Gamble,  the engineer in charge of improvements in harbors and  rivers'in British Couimbia. They came in by way of  Bonner's Kerry and went out by the way of Revelstoke.  The teamsters who haul supplies from  Nelson to the construction camps report the tracklayers  on the Nelson & Fort tiheppard fen miles this side of the  cross ng of the North Fork of Salmon river, or about  twenty-live miles from Nelson.  Much complaint is heard from the men  who had station work on the Nelson & Fort Sheppard  rail way because of the delay in giving estimates of  tlieir work. Some of them finished up their work seven  weeks ago, yet they cannot get the engineer in charge to  give them tlieir estimates. This certainly is not fair  -treatment.  The weather was so rough on Kootenay  lake on Wednesday that the steamer Ainsworth had to  put back to Kaslo. At Nelson, the weather was as serene  as a May day in Italy.  Alderman Adam McKay of Kaslo was  in Nelson on Monday and Tuesday in search of pointers  as to how waterworks should be built.  The election for mayor ���. at Kaslo resulted in twenty-six votes being polled for R. F. Green  and twenty-two for G. T. Kane. The lirst meeting of  the board of aldermen will be held on Saturday, when,  it is reported, alderman Devlin will resign, so that Mr.  Kane can be elected to the board. "Tom" has long been  noted for his generosity in giving away things lie had no  use for.  W. H. Brandon of  New Denver is in  Nelson. He came by way of Kaslo. and says the road is  in bad condition,  There is good sleighing on Toad mountain, the snow being eighteen inches deep.  The party who took a lantern, having  "A. II." engraved on a copper plate on its side, from the  fire hall the night of the (lance, will please return it to  the International hotel, and be thanked.  R. ft. Dougan, who is opening up what  he believes to be the richest piece of ground in the province, was in Nelson on Monday. The ground is on Forty-  nine creek. Several thousand dollars will be expended  this winter in milking preparations for hydratilicing in  the spring.  Tlie report is that the Philadelphia  parties who nave John Miles' gold claim (the Majestic)  bonded will take up the bond when it falls due on the  23rd instant. The Majestic is about a mile distant from  the Poormaii and is seven miles from Nelson.  D. B. Bogle lias taken up his residence  at New Denver.   He intends to study law.  Nelson has another bank, the third.  The new candidate tor public favor is the Postofllce Savings Bank of Canada. \\ hen a depositor wishes to draw  money from it. however, he can do so only by applying to  the postmaster-general an Ottawa, who will scud by return mail a check for the amount.  The telephone line between Nelson and  Kaslo is now a part of the telegraph system of the Canadian Pacific.  "Dave" Morice is down off Toad mountain looking around for a house in which to keep his family during the winter.  A number of New Denver men will apply at the next session of I lie legislature for a charter for  a telephone company. Don't do it. boys: for there's  nothing in it. If there was tho lCootcnay Lake Telephone  Company, whose charter covers all southern Kootenay,  would ere this have had lines in operation in Slocan district.   Poking Pun at a Town.  Everyone in this section of British Columbia  knows   that  Pilot Bay is readily  reached by boat, as much so as any town on  Kootenay lake; but a tourist correspondent of the Spokane .Review would have  it located in an out-of-the-way, inaccessible spot, and its residents compelled   to  rely on   the genius of one  man  to  help  them in all  their difficulties.   The tourist  correspondent says:    "Three restful, Hying days we passed beneath the hospitable home-roof of Mr. and Mrs. James I).  Marsdon at Pilot Bay on Kootenay lake.  Mr.  Marsden  is  manager of the Galena  Trailing Company, oporatingat Pilot Bay  and Three Porks.   Although a young mail  lie has had a wide tind  varied experience  in border business.    FUf a long while lie  was stationed ;it Barkerville in the Cariboo mines, 'i(X) miles from a railroad, aud  so far to the north that the mercury often  marks   50   and   00   degrees   below   zero.  Trading in these wilds is somewhat different from dealings in'special  lines in the  city.    While in the Cariboo diggings Alr.  Marsden learned to do a variety of useful  things���from prescribing for a sick man  An Event That Was a Success  Both  Socially  and Financially.  The fireman's hall at Nelson  was  first  opened oil Tuesday night Avith a ball, the  third" given  by Deluge 1 look' & Ladder  Company,- No.   1,   of the Nelson  fire department.    The hall was tastefully decorated with flags, bunting, and fire-lighting  'apparatus.    The   attendance   was   quite  large, and the event '.passed 'off. without a  mishap or an incident to  be regretted.  Those in attendance  were Mr. ancPMrs.  Mahoney of Kaslo, Mrs. Roberts of Iva-lso,  the Misses Gallop of Balfour, Miss Thomas  of Kaslo, Miss Van Buren of California,,.

Be-  tweet 12 and I a supper was served at the  Nelson house. Dancing was kept up till  3 o'clock. That the ball was a, success is  due, in a great nieasue. to those who attended from Kaslo; and if tlie lire department of that city ever gives a ball,  every member ofthe fire department-of  Nelson will attend, and, more.'will take  along a partner who will dance. Fifty-  six tickets were sold, and when all the  expenses are paid, the company will be  ahead about $0(1   Got the Plaster on  the "Wrong- Man.  A few nights ago a, well-known Nelson  man. who sometimes   imbibes too  freely  of Irish whisky, found  his way to a room  ina west-side hotel. Shortly after arriving he became very sick, and the landlady,  'hearing his niotins. arose and tried to alleviate his sufferings. Guessing aright the  complaint, she left the room'to prepare a  mustard plaster, but while she was gone  the sick man goL'up'auci left the hotel for  his own apartments a block distant. The  landlady returned with the plaster, and  entering as she supposed the same room  applied the plaster to the occupant of the  bed. Allowing the plaster to remain on  the usual time, she removed it, and retired  to her own room. The next morning the  occupant of that bed was at a loss to understand why he carried around with him  a blister as largo as an old-fashioned  Scotch bannock'. The man I'or whom the  plaster was intended awoke next morning fooling none the worse for his night's  carousal.
