Array East anb liiest Kootenay  Have   Better Showings  for Mines than   any  other Sections on the Continent  of America.  (Capital anb Brains  Can   Both    be   Employed   to   Advantage   in  the  Mining  Camps of East and  West   Kootenay.  FIRST  YEAR.-NO  jStELSO_Nt,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA,  THURSDAY,  SEPTEMBER  21,   1.808.  PRICE  TEN"  CENTS.  COUNTY COUBT SITS IN NELSON.  BAD ACOUSTIC PROPERTIES OF THE  COURT ROOM.  Jim Startsman Gets  Five  "years for  Forgery  ��� S. J. Henderson Comes in for a. Scoring-   Some Interesting- Points of Mining Law  Brought Up.   The  new court  building   was used   for  the first time on the MH.li for the session  of   tlio county  court,   presided   over  by  justice .S]links.   The court room is a handsome and airy chamber, but suffers from  the difficulty anyone has in hearing what  .   anyone else  is saying.     This   was   complained  of by  the judge, and  obviously  disconcerted flic various lawyers who had  to appear.    It was partly caused by the  echoing  footsteps  on   the   wooden   floor,  and tlie noise from the stairs and below,  whicli is not sufficiently excluded.    These  defects will  no doubt be remedied  when  the courthouse i.s completed and furnished.  .But it is a curious fact that all buildings  built   for   public,   purposes  are  made  to  please  the  eyes while the voice and car  arc never considered.   The best buildings  to speak in tire those with no embrasures,  tingles or corners, and flat roofs of medium  height.    If   architects   were  only  public  speakers   they   would   not   make  such   a  mess of halls, courtrooms and churches tis  as they usually do.  The court sat during Tuesday auditing  Wesl, Ivootenay's disputed accounts, and  its proceedings were of little interest Lo  anyone not- directly concerned. On Wednesday fhe case of .James Sturtsmau. committed I'or littering a forged chock, came  up. The check was admitted to be ti  forgery, iind the only question of proof,  where the defense had tt show, wtis on tlie  (piestion of the prisoner's guilty knowledge. The case for the prosecution was  somewhat embarrassed by tho refusal of-  the court to admit evidence regarding  some alleged forged notes which were- not  produced. But the court held that there  wtis sufficient evidence to show guilty  knowledge and found the prisoner guilty.  The judge's deliverance was not calculated  to orcourage any citizens with a talent  J'or this form of crime.  "Prisoner  tit  the  bar,"  he  said.   '"The  law looks on forgery tis the gravest com  mercial crime  ti  man   can  commit  The  crime of embezzlement is a bad one. but  it is tis nothing compared with forgery.  Forgery destroys all confidence in notes,  checks and bills of exchange, and strikes  a.t the root of commerce. The penalty  i'or forgery is imprisonment for life. A  few years'ago it wtis death. ..Society ordains tliat. to protect itself, such men as  you should be put out of the way. I impose the lightest penalty I can find it in  my conscience to give you, five years."  The prisoner, who i-: a tall slim fair young  man. twitched tit his mustache continually, but showed no other sign of nervousness, and wtis removed from the court. A  slight sensation was to follow. A witness,  S. .J. Henderson, who gave evidence under  circumstances which made the court suspect him of suppressing evidence, wtis recalled and evidence heard from constable  Sandelands whicli strengthened the suspicion. Ife wtis dismissed with the consolation that the crown could not proceed  against him on suspicion, however strong.  From tragedy to comedy, from grave to  gay, is the rule all the world over. The  nextcti.se wtis tin action brought by Mr.  Atkins of the Ivaslo Examiner stall",  against tlie proprietor for ti balance; of  wages due. lie got judgment, and everyone except the lawyers wondered why the  case had ever been brought into court.  Two interesting points iu mining law  came up before thecourtat today'ssiiting.  Tlie first, in the case of McDonald v. McLeod. wtis practically as follows: If a prospector, without any partnership agreement or specific agreement for an interest,  assists another prospector to stake a claim,  is he thereby entitled to an interest in  that claim. The law, of course, said no.  The other point wtis much more complex  and more interesting. It raised the question whether ti bill of sale of an interest  in ti milling claim wtis radically bad where  tlie purchaser did not hold a free miner's  certificate, or whether it conveyed the  interest, but could not be recognized by  ti court of law until the purchaser had acquired a certificate and had recorded the  claim. The decision on this point has  been reserved to the next court. It is one  of great importance. Numerous deals are  made on the outside in which the bill of  sale, and the application and fee for the  ] ai rchn-ser's certificate are for wa rded to the  l'ecord office a.t the same time. Jf all such  bills of sale are radically bad, the title of  the holders to many of the big properties  in this country is, to put it mildly, dubious.

Among the visitors to Nelson this week  was G. W. Hughes of the Mountain Chief  mine and ore-hauler in chief of the Slocan  district. "1 suppose 1 have had as anxious a summer as anyone," he said to the  Tribune man, "but J did not allow myself to tfet the blues over it. .Inch of the  trouble we have been passing til rough is  caused by people getting the blues aud  spreading them round."  What is the outlook for the winter?  '���Very good. There is quite a little ore  coming out now. 1 shipped seventy-live  tons of Mountain Chief ore this week. I  think there will be a greater production  and more development this winter ilian  last."  How much ore do you calculate to ship  from the Mountain Chief.  ������1 am afraid to tell you. I have things  pretty well blocked out there aud you  will see later on."'  AVould it not pay you better to ship by  way of Xakusp.  "Perhaps when the road is open. But I  can't wa.it till it is. 1 am one of those  men who must be doing something all the  time. 1 would rather make $10,000 now  than $20,000 ten years hence.. Some men  are content to sit down and wait till they  can work tit the least cost. But J want to  go right ahead if I can work tit ti profit  tit all."  A   FEW   FIGURES  F. .Hayward v.  .  J.   Hennessy--  to  set  tiside   lis  ad  If.  Wal by  v. S. Mills ic A.  bin garnishees   adjourned to next court. I boots at a 11  The Nakusp Railway.  A rumor wtis current in Xelson this  week that the Xakusp road would be  pushed forward to Three Forks immediately from Slocan lake, and that contractors were on the ground, and were  only waiting for the completion of surveys. It is unlikely that this is the case.  The Xakusp road will be pushed to completion as tar as Slocan lake. The project  is backed by the jirovincial credit and isa  pet scheme of the premier's. Jt may be  extended along the shore of Slocan hike,  but no railroad connection will be made  with Three Forks at present. It is looked  upon with regret that the charter of the  Nakusp railway does not extend to Cody  ereek, as that is the natural dumping  ground of some of the most; important  mines. The mouth of Cody creek is, however, corralled by the charter of tlie  Kiislo-Slocan railway. It is said to be due  to pressure on the part of the provincial  government .that the branch line from  Hevclsto :e to Arrow hike i.s under actual  construction this year.  Chickens to be Hatched.  All experimental boring 2500 feet deep  was recently made in the Witwutersrand  gold field, South Africa, with a view to  testing the lay of the auriferous deposits.

A Xew Y'ork banker who died some  years ago worth forty million dollars  used to say that during the crisis of 1 S-'.7  lie used to black his own boots tmd was  prepared to do so again. The inhabitants  of West Kootenay know ti trick worth  ten of that. During periods of financial  embarrassment they  do  not black their  Showing What Mr. Bailey's Estimate Would  Have Amounted to.  The Kaslo Examiner runs foul of captain Fitzstubbs because he i.s reported by  the Ivootenay Star to have said that the  government had one mile of road for tin  expenditure of $7500 ��� on the Kaslo and  'Slocan road, it appears that after the  money was appropriated it was handed  over to the old road committee to expend.  The government officials were apparently  dissatisfied with the expenditure of the  money by S. S. Bailey, under the direction of the road committee, tind stopped  the work; continuing it afterwards under  direct government supervision.  The Kaslo Examiner has been favored  with ti copy of the report submitted by  Mr. Bailey to the committee, which it-  considers proves that the money' was  judiciously expended and that more work  was done with it under the patriotic direction of the committee, than would  otherwise have been possible. Here is the  extract:  "'Mr. Bailey claims to have gone over  lOi miles of road, widening, repairing L5  miles, and building'1A miles of new road.  The particulars tire given as follows:  Xine new bridges of an average span of  .0 feet. Eleven thousand cubic yards of  rock excavation. Four thousand two hundred and forty lineal feet of corduroy and  10 new culverts. Eight hundred feet of  rip-rap to support road on hillside. The  expenditure is stated at $G0S5."  A. few calculations based on these  figures bring out some astonishing results. If this work had been done by  contract in the east, whore wtiges are  from $1 to $2 per day, it would have cost  as follows: Xine bridges, span 80 feet,  $100 each. $000 : 11,000 cubic vards of rock  excavalion, $1.-10 per yard, $15.-100; -12-10  lineal feet cordurov, IS cents per foot,  $20:35.20; 10 log culverts (of-I logs each)  $7.20 each, $115.20; SOO feet of rip-rap, 00  cents per foot, $-!S0: total, $10,930.-10.  These figures are based on actual contracts let on the Canadian Pacific construction. The result is even more curious  if prices current in the west are taken.  The figures are again from actual tenders:  Xine bridges, span 30 feet. $210 each.  $1800: 11,000 cubic yards of rock excavation. $:_ per yard, $33,000; -12-10 lineal feet  of corduroy, $1.80 per foot, $7032; 1(3 log  culverts (of 1 logs each) $15 each, $2-10;  SOO feet rip-rap. $2.25 per foot, $1S00;  total, $1-1,-102.  .Mr. Bailey has on his own showing done  work with $00S5 which, under the ordinary contract prices of this country, would  have cost $1-1.502. Mr. Bailey has made  the mistake common with gentlemen of  his kidney of proving too much. As a  serious performance, his report is absurd.  And tis an artistic fiction it litis the grave  drawback of being too far away from  nature.  LECTURE   ON   THE .FINANCIAL   CRISIS  Vagrants to Whom the Act  Does Not  Apply.  Strange as it may appear, vagrancy has  become  a   regular   profession.     It  may  really be termed ti learned profession.  To  live by one's wits, and endeavor abov/. all  things to avoid tiny labor, requires more  skill, tact.'ahd training than it would to  earn a good sup]iort iu  some legitimate  business.     The   uncertainties,   the   utter  carelessness and abandonment of the profession, constitute such a charm thtit its  members prefer its chances to the certain  rewards of  honest labor.     All   vagrants  are not poor.    There are times when some  people  possessed  of considerable  wealth  are no less vagrants than the  miserable  tram]) who begs from door to door.   Properly speaking, every  person  who  is not  engaged in the production of, or manipulation of. the mental or material products  ofthe world is ti \agrant. AVhoovor is not  a purveyor  or   producer  of those things  which  tire  useful   to  man  as ti humane,  moral,   and   intellectual being is a drone.  The tramp, the pirate, the man who talks  to you while you tire busy, the burglar,  the midnight assassin, and the little girl  who   insists  on   selling  you   tickets to a  charity concert,   are  unmistakably   vagrants   who  should   be cut down tind east  into the oven.    There are others who tire  also vagrants in reality,- but are not generally so regarded.    The genteel tind   prosperous gamblers on   the stock   exchange  arc pirates of  private   purses.    Gamblers  and   their retainers,   pugilists and   their  backers, are really nothing but vagrants,  tind yet such classesare not only tolerated  but   even   courted    tind    encouraged   by  society.    As  long as a  man   litis  money,  society does not ask him how he got it.  His  life tiinl antecedents are matters of  minor  importance.    Until   society recognizes the fact that there is no real difference between   the poor   vagrant and  the  wealthy vagabond, so long will it be possible for the. worst classes to mingle with  the best, hence wc say thtit society needs  turning inside out and scraping.  Disastrous Fire at Kamloops.  A big fire occurred at KaniloopsSunday.  It began at Vair's tinsmith shop about 5  A.M. It spread from there, taking both  sides of the street, tind destroyed K. G.  Prior ic Go's store and warehouse, where  a big stock of agricultural implements  wason hand. The Fortune block, Whit-  taker's law office, and a number of other  buildings, including the Dominion land  office, were totally destroyed. The fire  wtis checked at Mr. Mara's house, of which  the roof wtis burnt off but the remainder  of the building saved. The damage is  estimated at between $SOf(KH)and $I(K),(XK).  And its Connection With the Silver Question  in Nelson.  D. 13. Bogle lectured on this subject to a  good audience on the Mth instant in the  Methodist church hall, whicli was lent for  the occasion.     The   ordinary individual  goes  to ii  lecture to be amused or have  his   feelings   worked   upon.     'From   this  point of view the lecture was a failure.  There was little or nothing in it to stir  the sentiment of a western audience.   It  was simply a calm and  dispassionate at-  tempt'to treat the linancial crisis and tho.  silver question from a logical aud scientific  point of view.   The only point by which  the lecturer made his audience smile, wa.s  ��� when he related that he had heard the  financial crisis ascribed in sober earnest  to the doors of the World's Fair having  been opened on Sundays, and showed that  to put it down to this wa.s only a degree  more absurd than to say that tariff legislation or the Sherman law was responsible.   The result of the lecturer's analysis  Wiis that the generality of the crisis could  only bo explained by the appreciation of  the money of ultimate redemption taking  effect over the whole world.    He  found  that this appreciation was due to the insufficiency of the supply of gold to meet  the increasing currency requirements of  the world, and  to the demonetization of  silver, which gives a much larger area, to  be covered  by (he stock of gold in  existence. The great remedy was bimetallism.  The lecturer then went on to explain the  theory of bimetallism, and to show that  bimetallism does not involve swamping  the world with a depreciated coinage, because bimetallism does uot propose to give  silver tiny purchasing power over commodities not regulated   by  its   intrinsic  value.   The appreciation of gold was, on  the lecturer's own showing, a steady and  gradual process and could  not, therefore,  be responsible  for the   sudden   drop   in  prices tind  paralysis of trade whicli  constitutes a crisis.    Some agency must exist  which retards the action, for (he time being, of this appreciation, and some cause  which suddenly brings it to bear on prices  with the accumulated force of years.  The  agency, the lecturer pointed out, is the  credit system, and  the cause which stops  the action of the credit system on commerce the loss of confidence. Consequently  it is iu the abuse of the credit system together   with   the    appreciation   of   gold  r.hat   the   ultimate   analysis   of  a crisis  brings the inquirer.  In conclusion the lecturer showed thtit  the abuse of the credit system might go  on under a bimetallic system, aud would  work equal havoc under such ti system if  not restrained. But for the present evils  the extended use of silver as legal tender  wtis the only remedy which could pretend  to touch the real causes of the disease.  The lecture was marked by careful  reasoning throughout, and equally careful  avoidance of exaggerated statements, tind  it had the merit of being an original and  independent study of the all-absorbing  question of the day.  from friends. To the great protector, the  organizer of the invincible ironsides, the  British army owes its redcoats. In other  words, what is now the hue of loyalty  wa.s the distinguishing color of those  whom king Charles called rebels, tind to  add to the contrast the first redcoats were  given out to these sturdy rebels under the  shadow of royal Windsor. Some of the  regiments did not care for red. Cromwell  dealt with them iu characteristic fashion.  ���'.Sir," he wrote to Mr. Bussed, "I hear  your troops refuse the new coats. Say  this: Wear them or go home. I stand  {no nonsense from anyone. It is a needful  .'filing we be as "one in color, much ill having been from "diversity of clothing, to  slaying of friends by friends."  GREAT   EXPECTATIONS.  OPERATIONS HAVE BEGUN'AT LAST  ON  THE     SILVER     KING     AND     KOOTENAY    BONANZA    CLAIMS.  Engineer Harvey and H. E. -Croasedaile are  on the Ground, With Two Directors of the  Company on Their Way From England to  Inspect the Property.  Crofter Settlements in Canada Abandoned.  The crofter settlements in the Canadian  Northwest have been condemned as a  complete failure by the government, and  all further efforts in that direction will  be abandoned. Sir George Trevelyan,  secretary for Scotland, in the house of  commons, spoke most strongly of tlie  failure of the scheme, and said it would  be many loug years before the government again undertook state colonization  in Canada. He described the failure of  the settlements at .Saltcoats tmd Killar-  ney. and declared the people sent out  were not naturally of the class called  emigrants. Any energy or self-reliance  they might have had was soon lost under  this system of colonization. Another element in the failure was that it wtis impossible to got emigrants of the right class,  for whom parliament intended to vote  ___*(.000. Not ti single family responded  to the invitations distributed last year  throughout the congested districts.  A Hint to Coming Candidates.  The candidate for congress Imd been  making ti speech in one of the towns of  his district where he was not well known  personally, but in the evening while waiting for a train he strayed into a butcher  shop, and without saying who he was begun to pump the butcher to lind out how-  he stood.  "Did you hear that speech this afternoon'." he inquired, after some geiier.nl  talk.  "Ves," rejilied the butcher. "I was  there."  "What did you think of it"  "Pshaw," said the honest butcher, "I've  made ti better speech than thala hundred  times trying to sell fifteen cents worth of  soap bono." The candidate concealed Iris  identity.   Why British Soldiers 'Wear Red.  Iii Mticinillaii's magazine, .1. W. For-  lesquo writes an interesting paper called  "A Chapter on Kedcotits." which deals  with the adoption of red as the color of  the British tinny. Everybody remembers  the outcry of a few years ago in consequence oi' a mistaken notion that the  glorious red was In be supplanted by a  coat of gray.

Clax'k of the Washington'Mine Succeeds to a Large Property.  The will of Mrs. F. Cannon was filed for  probate in Sjiokane on Monday and wtis  set for final proof October 10th. The entire esttite is left to the testatrix's husband Mr. A. M. Cannon for life. The  ultimate disposition of the property is as  follows:  To Marie Bennett, Ktitherine Allen,  Ralph L. Clarke, and Josephine Clarke  she leaves all hor estate of every kind and  description in eqiuil moieties to be paid as  follows: To Ralph L. Clarke, at the ex-  piration of 10 years after the death of her  husband, his full share, iind to each of the  daughters her full share at the expiration  of 15 years after Mr. Cannon's death.  For' 10 years after the death of her husband she wills that the whole estate  owned by both be kept together and managed as an entirety, but in any event she  asks that her estate be kept together for  that period by her trustees, and during  that period she desires the net income of  her esttite, from time to time tind within  each year, to be paid over to her four children share and share alike. For that purpose she bequeaths to her son Ralph one-  fourth of her income for 10 years, aud to  each of the three daughters one-fourth  for lo years.  The executors, in their petition filed  with the court, represent thtit. in their  opinion, the value of Mrs. Cannon's real  and personal estate, tit the jiresent time,  is $00,000 and its debts $10,000, and the  value of the community real and personal  estate, at its present value is $1,.00.000.  and its debts $..00,000.  Cleveland Flops on the  Chinese Question.  President  Cleveland   has  ������flunked"' on  the enforcement of the Chinese exclusion  law.    Secretary  Carlisle  has   thrown   uji  the sponge in disgust, and attorney-general Olney, in view of the existing situation, is the happiest man in the cabinet.  Developments   pertaining  to   the   Geary  Act lnive been remarkable.    Administration  officials have  played fast and loose  with congress tind the sujireme court.    As  is well understood everywhere, the Geary  Act  passed   both   houses, was  signed by  president Harrison, and last May wa.s declared constitutional by the highest judicial body in the country.    It  litis praoti-  cally been a dead  letter since that time.  Till lately the presideiitand his cabinetti|i-  peared   to  be enthusiastic so far as  the  direct enforcement of law was concerned.  Cleveland in several interviews intimated  that there was no other course to pursue  than   to strictly   enforce   the  law.     But  there litis been a swooping change.    The  attorneys of the Six Companies and  the  Chinese  Legation   have  made a tremendous spurt in opi>osition   to  the law  by  l>leas made to president Cleveland, backed  ii I :> by threats of retallintion on American  subjects iu China.    All this litis been done  notwithstanding the determined ojijiosi-  tion of representatives Geary and Mnguirc  and  other  friends  of the exclusion   law.  The president has finally decided to order  ti halt in the execution of previous orders  given to officials under him to enforce the  law.    Further than  this he has used  the  powerful administration   lever to secure  the   passage   of the   Kverett  bill   in   the  house, and   the   Hoar bill in   the senate,  which  practically  nullify the Geary Act.  Bitter Anti-Foreign Feeling in China.  The stciiiushi|) Peru from the Orient  brought the following advices from Hung  Kong to August '_.*>th. tmd from Vokohama  to September-lth: "Theanti-foreign feeling seems to be growing in China. In  Nanking there wtis never a more bitter  anti-foreign feeling than exists there now.  iind it is freely ex|>ressed in the schools,  in the streets nnd the lea houses. A day  of special jirtiyer and fasting among the  resident missionaries has been fixed to  'to supplicate heaven on behalf of our  fellow missionaries, whose lives and property seem so mercilessly at the hands of  such unjust authorities and treacherous  people.'" I'n less the missionaries want  ti martyr's crown they had better stoji  sujiplicating and get out.  Meeting of the South Kootenay Board of Trade.  The Board of Trade met on Friday last  to consider how the action of Mr. Larson,  in |iaying time checks at Sayward, and  refusing to-cash I hem for third parties  unless endorsed by one of the banks, could  be met. The system adopted on the road  was causing great hardship to the  laborers iind much loss and inconvenience to the merchants of Nelson. A committee of three was ajipointed to take  legal advice as to whether there was not  a legal remedy available for the laborers  and to report fo the council. An informal discussion took- place as to the prevalence of illicit whisky selling along the  road, iind very unfavorable comments  made on the authorities who had taken  no action to put a slop to the trade.  Some excitement wtis caused iu Nelson  by   the   arrival   on..the   ground   of   Mr..  Harvey, the engineer..of the Silver King"  Mining Company, on Tuesday.    He came  from  Colorado  via  Bonner's   Ferry, aud  was joined here by H. ]_. Croasedaile, the  attorney for the vendors during the negotiations I'or the sale.    On 'Wednesday  Mr.  Harvey and Mr. Croasedaile, accompanied by 31r. Macdonald, the secretary  of the late Ivootenay Bonanza Company,  .paid a visit to the mine.    It is understood  that Mr. Harvey's intention  is to size up  the locality with a view to the construction of roads and tramways, and the selection of a site for the niatteing works,  etc.    But all connected with the company  tire extremely reticent about their plans  for  the  future.     Two directors   are   on  their way from  England  to see that the  property   has not run   away   since  Mr.  Hocpcl examined  it.    Extraordinary precautions  have   been   taken   against   the  possibility of mistakes in title or location.  The ordinary certified  abstract of title  and Mr. Hoejiel's report were notsufticient.  As long ago as last summer Messrs. Far-  well and Selous. as surveyor and justice  of the jieace respectively, were requested  to give affidavits that the mine commonly  known tis the Silver  King group was the  same tis thtit for which  the vendors held  the  crown   grant.     After   the  deal   was  completed tlie honorable Theodore Davie  wtis sent up here to make a final inspection   of   the   title   to   the   proj.or.y.   aud    '  finally two directors must add their testimony  to  the   actual   existence   of   the  mine.    The trouble tind difficulty in securing   purchasers   who   could   handle    the  property, have not been the least chapter  in the history of the delays and  misfortunes that have dogged this mine from its  discovery.    The livsl deal  whicli  was ou  foot seems to have failed altogether, then  the  j)roposed  chairman  of  the company  went back  on  tho-deal.    Finally everything   was in   train, aud   the   jirospectus  ready  for issue,   when   crash   went  the  Australian   banks.      Things    had    fortunately gone too far for withdrtiwal before  tho slum j) in silver took place, or the mine  would not ha ve been floated  to this day.  It  is to be hoped   that brighter chapters  remain to be written.    The mine cannot  fail   to  pay  good   dividends   if  projiorly  handled, and the importance of this to (he  development of   West  Kootenay cannot  be  overestimated.     .Meantime   the  pros-  poets fora busy winter on Toad Mountain  tind in Nelson tire most encouraging.  The transfer wtis finally completed today, tho money consideration being jitiid  to the vendors at lhe Bank of British Columbia. A part from the personal interest  of the Halls.

THUKSDAY MORNING.........yi.I'TKMItKR .1, 1pS!M  NO   BETTER   THAN   PEONS.  called out tind two or three miners killed  and seven or ei^ht Avouudcd. -This has  led to more rioting embittered by blood.  Dr. fi'ould #ivc\. the tivertige number of  a miner's J'iimily in l.nghind tis five. The  strike litis cub away the means of support  of two millions of people, besides those  employed iu feeding and looking after the  wants of so tremendous ti population, not  to spot.I. of the employes of the numerous  mills and factories that have been closed  down from want of coal.- And all this i.s  not caused by the inherent wickedness of  cotil miners or the masters. It is simply  the protest by the masses against the disastrous fall in prices, which in some way,  they feel, is robbing them of the proceeds  of their labor.  Is our civilization it failure:'   Certainly  from the railroad labourer's point of view.  He is made the victim of injustice tmd extortion of the most barefaced  kind without  remedies  except-  those   beyond   bis  })owcr to adopt.    He goes to work nominally for ijil a tlay and board, really he is  lucky if he comes out with 50 cents a day  and board for the time he litis been working.    Working in a cut is no child's play.  After a time his clothes wear out.    This is  one opportunity for the contractor,    lie  has a store of his own at which goods are  retailed at extortionate prices.    Or a wet  clay comes.   The laborer is docked a dollar lor board, of which the  value is certainly not more than 10 or 50 cents.   The  chances of his  being sick  are carefully  guarded against tit his own expense, anil  25  per cent of  the outlay goes into  the  contractor's pocket.  . Finally,  when  the  day. of reckoning comes he is paid  with  an apparently inconvertible time ckeck.  .He goes with this to  the   nearest town,  "which is certain uot to be the town where  the settlement must, tit the contractor's  'dictum, be made.    When there he must  have money.     An accommodating agent  ���.of.the contractor is at his elbow; he will  cash the time check at a discount which  varies from 10 to 50 per cent, according to  the necessities of the holder.    Perhaps it  may be advantageous to shut this avenue  of escape off also.    Nothing more 'simple.  Diilieulties are placed in the way of third  parties cashing   the checks, which   make  them disinclined to handle them.    And a  place and time are set for their redemption  which place the luckless lioldercoinpletely  at the mercy of his employer,   in traveling exjienses, discounts a-nil other extortions, he is mulcted of at least 50 or 00'per.  cent of his earnings.   -There'may-be  a  remedy iit law.   That is immaterial.   The  law is beyond the means of a Dago with tt  $20 time check in his pocket.   The time  check system, as at present worked, is a  crying'disgrace  to   governments   which  never interfere except to  protect those  who are able to  protect themselves, and  leave to tlieir own resources the most ignorant and weakest of their subjects.   A  remedy is comparatively simple.   A law  requiring first, that every time check shtill  have the'place it is payable at and the  time at which it is due, plainly printed on  it; second, a severe and summary penalty  against the issuing of any time cheek not  punctually met .at'its-proper time and  place; third, an inspector over every big  public work  impowered  to  see that  no  evasion of the law is attempted, and to  bring any who break it to justice.   As  things are worked at present an inscription might be placed on the network of  railways that covers the globe, "Built by  the Slave Labor of the 19th Century."  THE   EFFECT   IN   INDIA.  Tn'���'Hi. is no danger that the crown will  make use of its prerogative to force a dissolution of parliament in l.ngland against  the wish of the government, that is, .Mr.  Gladstone. This course was urged by  that class of con.scrvti.ti ves who tire a I ways  running tlieir heads against a stone wall.  The crown only maintains its shadowy  hold on the l-iiglish people by maintaining  au absolute neutrality on party questions  and by always following the advice of its  ministers, and the crown knows it.  I.rk.ss comments on the Home Bide division,in the lords are now to hand.' The  Chronicle says the result makes the reform of Lhe house of lords a plank of the  Radical platform. The Daily News (Gltul-  stonian) points out that a large hostile  majority in the lords is tin essential to  the success of any measure of reform.  This reminds one of Joseph Chamberlain's  famous epigram, when he declared in hi.s  unregenortite days, that to ensure the success of tiny policy it wtis only necessary  to secure the opposition of the Times  Newspaper.    pSii.vkh will win not only in the L'nited  States but over all the world. The length  of the struggle only depends on how long  it will be before the Hood of common  sense talk on the subject litis tiny eil'ect on  the masses who do hot understand the  subject, and cannot trace the evils from  which they tire suffering to their proper  causes. Silvei- will win anil the jiresent  crisis take its place in history. But  such convulsions do not occur without  leaving their mark. This one means  thousands of men transferred from the  classes marked "'industrious'' to those  marked ���'dttngerous;" hundreds of thousands of men souied and discontented ;  thousands of families ruined, and thousands-.of young men who have missed  their start in life.  India continues to suffer from the action  of the government in demonetizing silver.  The effects of this precious linancial measure are threefold.  1. it leaves the producing classes of  India at the mercy of a government  which etui restrict or expand its Mat currency as it pleases.  2. Ib destroys India's trade with silver  using countries.  H. In India's exchange transactions  with her gold using creditors it leaves her  completely at the mercy of these creditors.  She litis got nothing to-pay them with  and they can extend her credit or put the  screw on just as pays them best:.  Had the Indian government .specially  designed a- measure to foment muLiny and  discontent they could not have hit on tt  more admirable shcnie. Under free silver  .Inditi was prosperous tind contented. Her  population and wealth weve steadily increasing. Under tt Mat currency system  she will be squeezed of her life blood by  l-iiropeaii money lendovs.  A.VOTHKH fruit of the crisis is showing  itself in the labor troubles to whicli it litis  given rise. Between three and four hundred thousand cotil miners tire out in  Kngland. Four times the entire population of British Columbia, till hungry iind  desperate men, turned loose in thedensely  populated midlands and north of I_ng-  j.ind,   IIiota have occurred, troops been  ���"What agriculture is coining to no man  knoweth. Wheat is three shillings a  quarter lower in England than it was a  year ago, and that with a short crop too.  Fug-land sets Mie price of whetit. It is today 20 shillings a quarter. Before the demonetization of silver in 1873 it went as  high as 00 shilling's.  A vkhy able paper on bimetallism by a  Mr. Twigg is amply ([noted by the British  Columbia papers. We don't known who  Mr. Twigg i.s, or "what is his connection  with British Columbia. But of Mr. Twigg  on bimetallism, we can say that his arguments are as sound tis his method of put-  theni is forcible and lucid.' 'Mi: Twigg is  'making a better use of his cramming in  political economy for the Indian civil  service than he ever could in Bengal. j  AxoTiti'.R-paragraph announces a list of  probable honors to Canadians over the  Behring sea arbitration. Such honors are  a'part of the scheme of things in Great  -Britain and have their.uses. Bub in the  colonies we don't want a pinchbeck imitation aristocracy. We can spare a few of  our superannuated millionaires to sit in  the English house of lords, and whenever  it wants them it can have them. But for  our leaders in Canada we want plain,  level-headed men with Mr. to their names,  or only such honorable distinction as the  people they represent can give them.  Prevention is Bettor Than Cure.  The Paris Figaro litis recently been taking the sense of its lady readers on an interesting (piestion of modern sociology���  whether a married woman should endure  her husband's infidelity or whether she  should resent it by revealing to him her  discovery and adopting such measures as  the law iind her ingenuity suggest.  " Rosette," having discovered that her  husband was untrue, declared war upon  him; after giving him due notice, she  opened his letters, hud him followed in the  streets, accompanied him on his walks-���  in line, wore out his patience until he  broke oil' with his charmer through sheer  weariness of being annoyed, and returned  to his lawful love. Another correspondent declares that where a woman has  reason to believe that her husband litis  committed a passing peccadillo, it is her  duty to forgive him. iind to console her-  scU'wilh the thought that his casual fault  will endear her to him. ���"Lucie" holds,  concerning marital infidelity, that no  self-respecting woman should bear it; she  should live with her husband afterward  tis ti friend. Thtit is also the opinion of  " Letitiii," ,who says that a breach of conjugal fidelity by the 'husband should be  resented by the wife, not with severity  and rigor, not with tears and groans, but  with moderation tind apparent good humor,    A "i.ectrice" asserts that from the  day ti woman learns that her husband has  been untrue, her happiness is at tin end  forever, and, if she litis the courage/she  should revenge herself by inlidelity to  her husband. "Clotilde"' (iocs not boiiove  in patient endurance, which, in her opinion, would generate contempt by the husband: a, wife so wronged should change  hor way, treat her husband with cold in-  dil.eronco, iind adjust hev household accordingly. i; B. de iSt. A." thinks a woman  should show her resentment in a manner  which will teach her husband that if. he  perseveres he may learn thtit two can  play at thtit game. "A Widow" holds  thtit ti wointtii should shut her eyes tind  try to win her husbtind back by tenderness iind love. It will be observed that  the "Widow," having only tho ghost of a  man to worry over, is tenderer and less  hard-hearted than the ladies who are still  engaged in the warfare of actual matrimony.  Sat  Down and Put Her Foot in It.  Sitting on one's foot is a. feminine habit  that  is  universal, tmd one thtit is quite  incomprehensible to the masculine lover  of comfort.    "I had a dreadful experience  at Mrs.   B.'s   the other evening," said a  young lady rejiorted   in   the   New -York  Tribune.      "1   had   just   thrown   myself  back  on  ti luxurious sofa, with  my foot  comfortably tucked under me, when Mrs.  B. called to me from the other end of the  room. "Come here, Emily,' she exclaiuiodI;  T  want  you   to  help  me arrange  these  ducts;', and  I  struggled up quickly, only  to find that I  had caught my foot in the  string  which   fastened   the  back  of   my  skirt, and 'do. what I could I could Mot disentangle it.  'Emily,'again culled Mrs. J..,  somewhat   impatiently���thinking   1   had  not heard���while I  tottered'and swayed,  kicking out in the most unhidy-Iikc fashion, tind becoming so red  that I am sure  the people near me must htive thought I  wtis going to have ti fit.   They till looked  at me'curiously. and kind Mrs. A. ciinie to  my assistance.    'What   is   it,   my  dear*,  stiid this good .Samaritan: "can 1 help you.  Don't you  feel   well?'   And   the   look of  amusement  wtis as hard   to   bear as the'  sympathy when I explained thesituation.  Grinning  broadly,  another   friend,   who  now approached   to offer his help, gave  me his'arm, and -between' them I hopped  iu  disgraceful fashion  to the door, kind  Mrs. A. helping me. tis soon ns we weve  alone,   to  extricate my loot,  which .had  been caught in a regular noose."  The Biggest Man in the World.  John Hanson -Craig is the  biggest man  in the world.    He weighs 907 pounds, is .7  years.old, and has been in the show busi  ness since babyhood. At birth he weighed  11    pounds:   iit   eleven   months   old    he  weighed   77   pounds;   at  two   years,   205  pounds.    At chat time he took the $1000  premium tit Barnum's baby show in New  York city iu the year IS5S.    At five years  he  weighed   .02 pounds:   at   twenty.  001  pounds;  at  twenty-two,  725   pounds;  tit  twenty-seven.   75.S   pounds;    at   twenty-  eight.   77-1    pounds:   tit   twenty-nine,   791  pounds; at thirty, SOO pounds: at thirty-  one, 8.0 pounds, tind his present weight is  just 907 pounds.

He requires  forty-one yards  for 'a. suit of clothes and  three pounds of yarn for stockings.    Mrs.  Craig is a good-looking.blonde and weighs  1.0 pounds.    When asked how long they  had   been   married,   she   laughingly   remarked that they were first married in  1882, but that they were just now enjoying their second honeymoon, as they were  divorced in January tind  remarried but a.  couple of weeks ago.  Canadian Banks Appropriate the Macaroon.  At a meeting of.the shareholders of the  Bank of British North America, held in  London on the 5th instant, a dividend of  Hi) shillings per ��50 share wa.s declared.  If. J. G. Kendall, director, presided, in  the course of his remarks he referred to  tlie satisfactory freedom from all financial panic exhibited by Canada at present,  when so much depression existed elsewhere. This, he contended, showed the  soundness of the Canadian banks anil the  stability of its banking system. The  prospect's of: the country's business and  industries and the harvest outlook were  good. All of which is gratifying news,  coming from such a quarter. The Canadian banking system beyond dispute is  the best in tiie world and one which other  countries, the Australian colonies iind the  United States, would do well to copy.  Canadian banks are all right, but the currency of the Dominion depends entirely  on her credit with Great Britain. It  could be much improved if the country's  stores of the precious metals wen; utilized  to provide us with good hard money.  The Underproduction of the Currency Metals.

Am I poseur? i  think I must be, a little."  lie is prouder of his failures than  another man would be of a success. His  deficiencies are a source of intense pleasure to him. Ho goes shooting, and hits  nothing but. dogs and keepers. He sends  to various ..journals superfluous articles  -which are never inserted. Of these facts  he will boast in a modest, deprecating  way. He is good-looking, a. great favorite  witli women, and not disliked even by his  best friends. He has a. 'manner whicli is  more than 'polished. I tell him sometimes  tha.t it is enamelled.  When I called on him tlie other day .1  found him iu a. vague reverie, looking  over an old box of letters. It was a faded  blue satin box that must have beenabon-  bonniere. The scent of old stale sweets  chiiig to it still, as the perfume of faded,  forgotten love and sentiment clung to the  old letter's.  "I was glancing over some of the souvenirs of my youth." he said,   (lie is nearly-  foil r-and-t wen ty).  ���-'������' " It might amuse me to look at them'."  I suggested.  He made a faint .semblance of refusal,  then selected two or three packets.  "Here," he said, "is the first letter I  ever received from n woman."  It wa.s written in a clear, bold hand.  "iMasthic Tom : If yon write to inn again, or go on any  more as vou have lately done.

He passed  me four letters tied with a piece of dim  mauve ribbon. He frowned, as with-a  bitter recollection of boredom, while I  read:  "IIKAHllU. FAlKH'HAltsii.v: Thanks I'or Ihe Mowers.

"Site was implacably sentimental the  imbecility of our engagement aud .all the  surrounding circumstances nearly killed  inc. 'We quarrelled. 1 was entirely in  the wrong."

"If she were at home on Wednesday,  then you'd call on Tuesday?"  "Certainly.*'  "And if she received you, and were nice  to you, what would you do next?" (1 like  to draw Tom out).  "Then I would suggest * * * but go  on, please. Head the next letter. IShe  wa.s ti hard, contemptuous, beautiful woman. She had an emaciated nature.

I trust you  will al any rate regret having written it. in which case I  shall try to forget, all about it. and to receive you bore as  usual as a friend."  "That was a snub," I. said, rather enjoying, the letter.  " Yes. I had made the mistake of thinking that because I did not like her husband���a trivial, indefinite person, with  whiskers���that-she could uot like him  either."  "I don't see it established that.she did,"  I observed. Tom waived that point, and  I was content not to press it.  "Now," he said, after looking at aud replacing a good deal of correspondence,  "here i.s the hist letter 1 can show you. I  often re-read it, and never without a  pang, its very look disconcerts nie still.  It is from a girl 1 loved. Ves, I am sure I  really loved her.

It declares that  the Canadian style of oratory is evidently  unsuitable to the English house of commons.

How a Young Man From the East Tackled  His First Bear,  A small party of hunters sat by a camp-  fire in a tamarack grove in the high Sierra,  says the San Erancisco Examiner. Their  guide Wiis Williitin Lark in, esquire, alias  "Old Mill," a man who had lived iu the  mountains for forty years and learned  many things worth telling about. A new  Winchester rifle that was being clciined  was the immediate provocation of some  reminiscent remarks on the subject of  pump-guns.  " We old mossbacks are slow to see anything good in now contraptions," said Mr.  Larkiu after begging a Turkish cigarette  from the dude and lighting it with the  dude's patent pocket lamp, "hut I'm just  beginning to get it socked home into my  feeble old intellect that things ain't naturally no account jus. because I never seen  'em afore. I stuck to it for a good many  years that tin old muzzle-loading rifle was  the best shooting tool that ever wtis or  ever could be made, but au old she bear  with one of my bullets through her lungs  taught mo different by clawing all the  clothes and half the meat off my btick.  I'm learning slowly, and I ain't too old to  learn .some more, ff I live long enough  J'll know consid'able yit.  "1 remember the lirst pump-gun that  came into these mountains. It wtis a  Henry sixteen-shooter, and it blew in  along with a kid from Boston who wanted  to kill a boar. The young chap's uncle  tried to convince him that killing a California grizzly wtis not as much fun as  some folks pretended, but the Boston boy  couldn't be convinced, tind so the uncle  hired nie to go along and take care of him.  Boston hatl ti gun in a case, tind I told him  to keep it there until we got to my bear  pasture. The rest of his outfit was ;.(J()  cartridges and a box of paper collars.  "When we got into camp over ou  the  South Fork  Boston  wanted  to begin the  slaughter right away iind opened up thtit  gun case.    I'd hoard of the repeating rifle,  but laid it put up  I'or a Yankee lie, and  when the boy pulled out the gun I though,  he had made a niistakonnd broughtalong  some scientific contrivance from his college.    He told me it was a Henry rilleaud  showed nie how it worked, but I had  no  use for it.    While he  stuffed   his  pump-  gun I smoked and   thought.    "Unless you  go slow,  Mr.   Larkiu,' says   I   to myself,  'you'll get into plenty of trouble.    Here  you are, mixed  up  with something that  you  don't sube   pretty   well.     A   rough  canyon,  two  hound  dogs  and   an   able-  bodied bear is a combination that you can  work,  but when  you  throw in a college  boy iind a gun thtit winds up like a clock  tind shoots till  the cows come home, the  situation looks  kind of  misty.'    I  didn't  think much of the  pump-gun, but I'or till  1 knew it might go oil' at both ends and  paw up everything by  tlie roots, and  I  was   tolerable   sure   tliat   Boston   would  wobble it around so's to take in a pretty  consid'able scope of outdoors.    Mut I allowed I was old-fashioned enough  to circumvent a Boston  boy antl his new gun  and'concluded to go ahead." -'       ,  "Next niorning we put the dogs into  Devil's Gulch, and by making a cut over  a spur we got about two miles below them  and Silt clown to wait for bear. The trees  were so tall and so close together that you  couldn't see the tops, and the sun never  Siiw the ground. Tlie canyon wtis narrow  and the sides so steep that they tucked  under at the bottom. While we sat there  I figured a bit on what was going to happen. There was"a. light breeze,'and presently I noticed something on the other side  of the-canyon, about iifty yards away.  The wind swayed some bushes ..that grew  around a charred stump, and from time  to time the black end of the stump.showed  up and then-disappeared very much like  ii bear's head peeping out of the brush.  "Pretty soon the dogs-made a row up  the gulch, and as tiie howls antl yells and  promiscuous uproar come nearer 1 knew  they had. started a bear and made him  get a move on. Boston danced around in  great excitement, and when I pointed to  the black stump he was ready to see bears  most anywhere. ' Y'ou take care of tha t,'  say I, -'and I'll go and see what ails the  dogs.' He opened fire on the stump, iind  I dodged from tree to tree up the gulch  until J was out of range.  "I never wtis in a battle, but if they  made any more noise at Bull .Run than  Boston was making, I'm glad I wasn't  there. I thought I 'was running away  from the biggest fight on record. It was  what our authors call 'a continual round  of musketry.' But while .running away,  from one battle I piled into another and  had all the fight I needed on my hands.  The dogs and two bears were mixed up  in some sort of disagreement a bout things  I   was in  it. as the  dude  would say. with both feet tind a crutch.  We  got somewhat  tangled,   but   things  came my way pretty soon, and when the  bears were laid  out,  I stopped to listen.  The fight was still on flown the canyon.  The boy is still holding his own, J thought;  it would be a a pity to spoil such a battle.'  So 1 went on and dressed my bears, while  the steady roll of musketry thundered iir  the  gulch.     Then   I   had .a   wash   in   the  creek, had a smoke and sat; down at the  foot of ti tree and fell asleep.    The last I  heard.was   the'inoiiotiiioiis   uproar that  indicated that the forces down the gulch  were stubbornly holding their ground.  "I never did know how long I slept, but  when I awoke till wa.s quiet. Perhaps it  was the silence following the cessation of  hostilities that awakened mo. I sot out  to lind Moston. iind groped my way down  the canyon through a, cloud of smoke.  Presently I came to the scent! of the fray'.  Where my hero had made his first mid  last stand wasa stack of empty shells and  a pump gun so hot that it Imd set the dvy  leaves a lire, but the bear hunter was gone.  I yelled, hut got no answer. I looked for  tracks up and down the canyon, but there  were no tracks.    The kid had vanished.  "Then I climbed up the side of the canyon,-high enough tf) sec the tops of trees  tha.. stood in the bottom of the gulch.  Near the scene of hostilities was ti giant  sugar pine, the top of whicli had been  broken off. Boston had shinned up that  tree when his ammunition gave out, and  when I discovered him he was balancing  hiniself upon the broken shan't and reaching out over his head into space for more  limbs.*'  HOTEL  John Johnson, Proprietor  Extensive  Improvements  Now- Completed.

HOUSE  Call a Halt,  or forty years ago the  Thirty or forty years ago the sum total  of the most lavish of American  families  did not exceed  one-half of what is spent  by their successors.   A. young lady who  spent live thousand dollars on  her toilet  wtis regarded as extravagant: her brother  would  have  been a subject  for a writ of  de lunalieo  if lie could  not  live  on   ten  thousand dollars a year.    Now there are  girls whose milliner bills exceed   twenty-  live  thousand   dollars a   year,  and   bovs  who can not make both ends meet on fifty  thousand  dollars.    There   is   no   limit  to  the sums which  may bo swallowed up by  yachts,  race-horses, and jewels.

Mr. Green  lias been involved in some business deals with the -Minneapolis syndicate represented hero hy Mr. Middaiigh.  ���The Kev. I_. Robson did not put in an  appearance on Sunday evening, and tho Kov. Mr. Martin  filled the pulpit of the Presbyterian church. Mr. Marl in  took ill during tho service and the congregation was dismissed.. There was nothing serious or dangerous about  his complaint but, it was undeniably inconvenient. Kev.  E. Itobson lectured on ���'Pioneer life in liritish Columbia"  to a good audience on Monday night.  A sad occurrence i.s reported from Kaslo.  George Wliitten, a well-known prospector who has been  iu this country for three years, and owned considerable  property round Ainsworth, was found dead in his bed in  the Montana hotel on Thursday niorning with his throat,  cut.   The circumstances pointed to suicide.  A-copy of'Perry'., mining map of A Vest  ICootenay has been handed jn to this ollice with the compliments of the C. & Iv.-S. N. Co. The map is a masterpiece of the draughtsman's and engravers' art. The taste  with which it i.s got up makes it an admirable advertisement of the country; and'reflects great credit on the  originators of the idea, and upon Mr. O'Karrel to whom  the beauty of the etching unci the originality ofthe design  are due.  The Fireman's ball, whicli was to have  taken place on the .(ith, lias been postponed two weeks.  Monday evening's train brought judge  Spiuks to hold county court in Nelson. Mr. Spinks coin-  pares very favorably with some of his learned brethren  in the supreme court.  Mr. Jowett returned  from the coast on  Monday.   Tie says things arc picking up in Vancouver.  H.  J.  Scott of  the   Hamilton   Powder  Company is the Kootoiiay country looking after the interests of his company.  Tlie secretary of the Board of Trade returned from Nakusp on Monday. ITe had with him'a  sli-oek-headed, rough-haired, stump-tailed sheep dog,  which he found at the Halfway house on the Nakusp trail.  He was circulating round the town attached to this dog  by about ten feet of hemp rope, and everyone thought he  was looking for the nearest tree. I5ut investigation  proved that the dog was a stray from ICaslo and showed  a natural reluctance to returning there.  Fred Chilcott, well-known in West  Kootenay, is making his autumn visitation here.  Messrs. Herrick & Evans are in town  with a flue sample of coarse gold taken from a prospect  about a mile below Trail Creek.  A ball was given at the Stanley house  on Wednesday night and dancing was kept up to a late  hour.  An epidemic of seasonable hilarity signalized tliocourt week in Nelson. It started in the law profession, extended to the Hoard of Trade, and finally attacked the representatives of the press with great severity. -  Registrar  Gii'lin  remarked  that at  no  previous court in West I.ootenay had such a galaxy of  legal talent been present. Four of Ivaslo'.. legal lights  took in the court, and judges Harrison. Mil ir, Howes. McLeod, Elliot, and chief justice .Johnson held up Nelson's  end.  W. C. AVard, Robert Ward and I Fisher  left on-Friday for the coast. Mr. Ward did not have  such "a p enic as this time last year. Ho.declared if he  had he would have closed the branch. He was favorably  impressed with West ��� Ivootenay _ present position anil  future prospects.  Messrs. Hall and Macdonald left for the  Colville country today.  Lane C. Gilliam left by train today for  the other side.  Mr.   Fraser of  the "Bank  of  Montreal  went out today on his way to Spokane. .  THE   MIDDAUGH    SYNDICATE    ON    DECK.  Everything Will be Paid, in Full and Business  Ko on as Usual.  W. D. Middaugh of-Minneapolis and G.  S. Atkins, W. Marshall and W. T. Mc-  Ching of Chicago are registered at the  Phair hotel, having arrived in Nelson on  the boat today. In conversation Mr. Mid-  dough gave his explanation of the difficulties in whicli the syndicate was placed.  " i^ou know," he said, "how it has been  in our country. I have just come from  the coast, where we have large investments, and you  people in the west have  no idea of what the crisis has been like in  tlie east. In Duluth and northern Minnesota we. have 12,000 men out of work  and on the Dulnth Exchange 10 percent  was being paid for call loans. lN'oonewho  has not walked the boards during tho hist  month or two can realize what the crisis  has been like. Jt was impossible to get  currency; Ave could not get currency, and  without currency we could do nothing  here. It did not matter what a man was  worth, he could not raise a dollar. Our  syndicate had extensive properties in  Minnesota in mines and real estate, and  till we could do was to go there and stay  with our business till we could get things  straightened out. The first currency that  began to flow in we got it, iind having  made things straight there, we are prepared to do the *ame here. Kvery liability will be discharged to the lastcentand  business go on as usual. The only thing  we must abandon will be the townsite on  Four-mile creek. As regards everything  else the ball will roll from now on.  most beautiful and  of minerals iind  exhibits   at    the  Japan's Beautiful Collection.  AVho would think it. but. notwithstanding, it is true that .Japan -has one of the  interesting collections  mining     machinery  World's Fair. The  work is all done with Japanese taste anrl  neatness. Tlieir space measures forty  feet front iind seventy-five feet deep. The  enclosure is made with rustic wood., of  Japan, oak. walnut, ash, cotton wood,  sycamore, maple, and the semi-tropical  woods of her more southerly islands. On  the walls hang pictures or photogravures  of the workings of mines today in Japan,  and also fine maps of ill I the mining  regions of her great island system. In  the numerous cabinets neatly labeled in  English and also in Japanese, there are  specimens of silver, gold, copper, antimony, lead, zinc, iron, sulphur, arsenic,  bit-ninth, and plumbago, all of good qual  ity, and the specimens of stibniteiiretbe  finest that are found in the -world, (.'lass  ..and and pottery clays of every kind are  shown. Many of the--metals extracted  from the ores are exhibited, especially  antimony, and there are cruciblesof black  lead equal to those from Dixon's manufactory. There i.s ii fine geological display of their comely work, anrl of gems,  Japan stones, topaz, garnets,' sapphires,  jade, a little malachite, beryls, smoky ami  clear quartz, opals, precious and semiprecious iron ore, antl a superior steel  made from the ore. There stands in the  south pari of the Japanese exhibits it  most striking piece of work. It is a model  of two ancient silver mines, as they were  worked-iu Japan I'roni fifty years ago up  to the days of hoary antiquity. It is a.  vevy primitive' method that is shown.  Take a hill, for example, that has been  tunneled anrl drifted into in various directions. Cut it in twiiiu and show the  interior workings. There are large irregular chambers fairly well timbered, in"  which half naked Japs are at work. The  chambers are lighted with pitch lurches,  and where four men work on ore, one man  takes care of the torcnes. Men anrl women  iire^hown at work, tind they are ascending aud descending on notched trees that  reach from one level to another, just as  one would see in the olrl mines of Mexico  some years since.

A Labor Member on the English Commons.  Mr. "voir Hardie in a recenfcspoech scored  his fellow mem burs of parliament as follows: "If people could see the farce at  Westminster that passed under the name  of conducting the business of tho nation,  they would be cured of tlieir belief in  party politics. Let them go on the terrace. There thoy would lind'their good  lords and their -ladies-indulging-in the  season, in strawberries and cream���in teii  and cake. -He. had .sometimes thought it  would not be a bad plan to adil to their  programme the nationalism of strawberries anrl cream, anrl so give them a chance  of treating their friend., occasionally.  Let them go into the smoking-room.  There they would find members enjoying  their whisky and water antl their cigar,  hi the library members reading; and in  the house of commons itself they would  find members sleeping. In short, every  opportunity was provided for everything  tinder heaven being done in the house of  commons except work. There were good  Christians there; they opened their proceedings with prayer. They remembered  that labor was a curse; they were tokl so  in the Bible, and .they'were determined to  act up to that part of their creed. After  twelve months' parliamentary experience  he was niore convinced than ever that in  one session laws could be passed which  would eradicate for ever the evil iind  misery due to poverty iu this land.  Komance in the Diamond Field.  That truth i.s stranger than fiction is  witnessed by the actual incredible diversities of fortune actually experienced in  real life tliat would be regarded, as too  fanciful to be embodied in a romance.  The Citreer of sir Cecil John Rhodes affords an instance illustrating this axiom  once more in a striking fashing, the more  noticeable because of the high position he  creditably fills in one of England's most  progressive colonies. Twenty years ago  sir Cecil���then known, when known at t. II,  simply as Rhodes���was associated with  two other "pards" in the ownership of  certain claims in the Kimberley diamond  fields of South Africa. Of these three  members of the partnership' of two tie-  carles ago, one has since been -hanged;  {mother has sunk -down- to the condition  of a common pauper, begging on the highway when not in the workhouse; and the  third is sir Cecil John Rhodes, ex-prime  minister of Cape Colony, and the richest  man iu Africa. .What are tlie causes and  conditions'that'lie behind results so rli-  SALE OF LOTS  IN THE TOWN OF NELSON.

Assistant Commissioner of Lands aud Works.  b1���s1p_mi  There is a splendid opening at Bear  Lake City for anyone who will open a  general store. One hundred men are  now employed in the mine's in the immediate vicinity, and the forces will  soon be doubled. Contracts have been  let for hauling ore from the Washington.  and Dardanelles mines, with headquarters for the packers and teamsters  at Bear Lake City, where the necessary  barns, stables, etc., are being erected.  Hayes & Kane have twenty men making a trail to the Miner Boy mine. The  Lucky Jim is being worked. The silver j  question cuts no figure with the Bear  Lake mines. None of them are idle.

What was there  to favor the one and to crush the life out  of bhe olhers.

The-answer of wisdom and experience  will be that they kicked character.  How Americans Came to be Called. Gringoes.  .Many years ago a popular song among  sailors was '"(. rcen Grow the Hushes, O!"  and one time a lot of sailors from an  American ship, one  of the lirst to enter  the port, went ashore at Guayinas or  .Mazatlan and after idling up on the native  drinks, made night hideous by singing  their favorite song. ''Green (.row the  Hushes, ()!*' and they were nicknamed  the ''Gringoes,'' for that was the way the  .Mexicans caught the first words of the  song. The name stuck and in time spread  all over Mexico, anrl torltty is move of it  fixture in the language than the American word "Greaser," which is regarded by  all .Mexicans as an opprobrious epithet  when used in regard to them.  ^^^^^^^^f^'4^^^"  >-P  e  i  oi general  stocks of all 1:  merchandise (except  hardware) can be ;found at G A  BIGELOW & CO.'S, East Baker  Street, NiliLlSON, Lie. tiers and  cigars at wholesale only.
