 l.5___  East an6 Til est Kootenay  Have   Better Showings for Mines than   any  other Sections on the Continent,  of- America.  FIRST  YEAR.---NO.  &  (Capital anfr Brains  Can   Both   be   Employed   to   Advantage   in  the  Mining Camps of East and  West  Kootenay.  NELSON, BRITISH  COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  OCTOBER  5,   L89J.  PRICE  TEN   CENTS.  DONE   WELL   IN   GOOD   ENGLISH.  MAN AND A PARTY MERCILESSLY  ROASTED BY THE ARGONAUT.  It Should be Read by Every Man Who Believes that the United States is not a  Country in which Presidents can be  Dictators.'  "If tho sins ot* president Cleveland concerned the Democracy alone. Llie outcries  of wrath from so many organs of his own  party would be amusing merely; but unhappily the country i.s iu interest.    It is  the element of apparent surprise mingled  with   these  screams   which   diverts.    Account for the aberration as we may, it is  still true that there tiro sensible men who  arc Democrats, yet how any nian of sense  could have expected Grover Cleveland to  turn out other than he lias done is incomprehensible.    Surely his energetic nullification  of   the   Chinese   Registration  Act  was  not needed  to make anybody aware  that   Mv.   Cleveland   deems   himself  the  wisest as well as the best of men���wiser  than   congress,   wiser  than   the supreme  court, wiser than the fathers who framed  tlie federal constitution and hedged about  the president's great powers with restrictions as salutary as they are well defined,  lie has ever held himself to be wiser than  his party, and  his calm contempt .for the  bimetallic plank of the platform on which  it renominated him is thoroughly  Gleve-  landesque.    There is nothing new, either,  in-the contrast between his professions'as  a civil service 'reformer and Ji is actions as  a strictly practical dealer in spoils to control congressional action and strengthen  his 'personal machine.  ���".Long ago he demonstrated his ability  to grovel as low as any other politician.  His hasty  pushing and   signing   of   the  Scott Chinese Exclusion Act when he was  a candidate in 1888 and needed the Pacific  stales in  the electoral college, his expulsion of Sackville West, the British minister,  because of  the Murchison  letter in  the saine"campaign", and his bluff at interdicting Canadian .commerce, were acts of  transparent 'demagogy intended to please  ... the Irish.    A more ..humiliating .bid for the  favor of the-.slums of New York, where  the  offal  of  the  world   festers and   the  worst of Ireland's  refuse 'dominates''the  muck-heap,   was  never  made even  by a.  Tammany   candidate   for   mayor of our  foreign  metropolis.    The"Mugwumps,  in  common with the Democracy, ignored all  these little proofs of Mr.Clevelnnd's world-  liness and   painted  him  anew  last  year  with a  halo about  his  head���as a high-  minded, pure-handed saint who graciously  condescended  to  walk the wicked world  of politics for its redemption.    No sooner  had his own election for the second time  been  secured   than   he   showed   his   old  egotism by rolling tables of stone down  from   his   Sinai   upon   the  sinful   ofiice-  seekers .who' were climbing its sides to  get the  reward of their services.    From  behind the burning bush of bis own selfishness he thundered that he hat I nodebts  to .pay, no obligations of 'Ordinary gratitude to discharge,'and that the sufficing,  tlie   exceeding   great   reward   of   every  wheel-horse of tlie Democracy should  be  that lie had assisted  in the re-election of  Grover   Cleveland.     The   San   Francisco  Examiner, in refusing to carry any further  this Balaam  ou its sore back, calls him  "the new  Cleveland."     He  is  the  same  Cleveland ��� unaltered    in    kind    though  changed in  degree.    His success last November confirmed every fault of his character, Avliich is neither lovely nor uncommon.    Originally, when a wave of chance  lifted him from the puddle of Buffalo politics and   landed  him   in   the governor's  chair of New   York,  and  another wave  placed him,astonished and bewildered by  his own luck and eminence, in the White  House,  there can  be  no doubt that  his  singular fortune awed him into tt wish to  be'equal,  so   far  as  his abilities   would  allow,   to   the   tremendous   opportunity  which had been given him.    Ho was a raw  man, a man commonplace in everything  save egotism ami stubbornness.    The first  speedily cured him of any suspicion  that  it was not his own merit that had raised  him to tiiis pinnacle of greatness, ami the  second   made   him   impervious   alike   to  counsel and criticism.    Me became strong,  witli a mule's strength,    Mis defeat I'or reelection puzzled  him  for a  time, but his  return to the White House has convinced  him   that a jealous heaven  has learned  that it can not flo without him in supervising  the affairs  of this republic.    For  now to believe that he can err is not possible.    The surest sign  that he is right is  that everybody else thinks he is wrong.  "Mr. Cleveland's four years of private  life in New York, moreover, have left  their impress. He found himself treated  with profound consideration as an ex-  president by the money grandees of the  city and also received by the Four Hundred. The contrast between the grandeur  of his later days and the earlier time  when he was a petty machine politician  and sheriff of Buffalo, probably seldom  left his heavy and solemn mind. Furthermore, his now millionaire friends, intimates of Mr. Whitney, his Standard Oil  secretary of the navy, were considerate  enough of their own and his interests to  put him in the way of making a fortune.  Mi'. Cleveland is now a very rich man,  and feels himself allied with the plutocracy financially, socially, and politically.  11 is nomination of Mr. Van Alen, the  multi-millionaire angloinaiiinc, to the  Italian mission is one of the manifestations of his new sympathy with the ultra-  opulent class.  ���'The Argonaut ventured, very soon  ixltev Mr. Cleveland resumed the presiden-,  tin I chair, to predict that the Democratic  party would be treated to a benevolent  despotism, and that both his party and  the country would soon grow very tired  of it. That prediction has been already  fulfilled. With a. confidence even greater  now than then in our powers of prophesy,  we fortell that there are stormy waters  'immediately ahead for Grover Cleveland.  Daily he is alienating important elements  of his party, and he is not in exchange  drawing to his side men hitherto opposed  to him. He would rule by the right of  his single (lull will, and he will end by  standing alone. The people of the United  States are not prepared to accept one-man  government; and if they were, a gentleman of Mr. Cleveland's calibre would  hardly be chosen dictator. There is every  prospect that il* he shall serve out hi.s term  he will leave the White House the most  utterly discredited man that ever entered  it. He is too small a man Lo play the  part I'or which he has cast himself. Such  a combination of vanity and obstinacy  may be trusted to wreck itself. As for  the party which is responsible for president Cleveland, what chance would it  stand at the polls if they were to be  opened tomorrow?  (.' Off Its Base.  The following article is from a Spokane  newspaper and was published in the  month of June, 1892. It was one of the  few discreditable attempts made to give  the Slocan a black eye and will be read  now by the backers of the camp with a  mixture of amusement and triumph:  "The   great   predictions''and   alluring  promises   in   regard   to  the   rich  strikes  that   were  reported   from   this .camp last  year have unfortunately not materialized.  No development  work has been clone'.o  any extent,  and   therefore  the  truth of  the assertions ofthe richness of the strikes'  has not  been verified.    In fact, many of  the claims are yet covered with snow, and  prospectors and miners have been unable  to  reach   the   mines   on   account  of the  heavy' white  blanket that conceals and  hides from view any-deposit of'minerals,  that   might awa.it  the  pick'and shovel.  However, those who have'returned 'from  the new camp, and those who have been  able to investigate the minerals uncovered  by.snow, are not very enthusiastic about  what  they  have seen, and some mining  men "express themselves in, rather* uncoiii-  plimentary  terms about the representations  that  have  been  made to them by  locators and 'boomers.' Subsequent events  have fully;confirmed the views expressed,  last winter.-' When   the  iiews of the  alleged rich strikes first reached here, the  season had too  far advanced  to  receive  any official confirmation, and no exploration could be made to assert or deny the.  truth of the  reports.    Yet thousands of  locations  were  made   by   men   who had  never seen the ground or found any minerals, but who made'snow locations,' on  the general proposition that it would do  no harm to own   the ground, whether or  not it contained any deposit.    Upon this  theory 'mines' wore sold at the standard  figure of from $1000 to .$1500; and  those  who invested, .simply upon the representations of a few speculators, are now anxiously awaiting future developments. The  encouraging reports .that are sent out occasionally about  the rich  prospects are  not backed by facts, and those who have  been over the ground do not hesitate to  declare that the Slocan district will never  distinguish  itself as a great silver producer.".  A   SMELTING   MAN   ON   THE   SLOCAN.  Surprised by What He Saw in the "Way of  Prospects of Shipments.  Mr. Carrel, the Spokane agent of the  San Francisco Smelting Company, was iu  Nelson last Friday, having just returned  from his first trip through the Slocan  mines. He confessed that he was surprised at the showings visible; he had, of  course, heard a. great deal about the Slocan. and was prepared to see very high-  grade prospects, but had always put  down much that was said about the  quantity of ore to be exaggeration. He  looked for small veins of high-grade ore,  and was surprised to see what enormous  bodies of exceptionally high-grade ore  some of the mines presented. Questioned  as to what the probable output would be  this winter and whether any large contracts had been entered into, he said:  "No. No large, contracts havo been  made; and , shipments will depend entirely on the facilities olfered for transport. The Canadian Pacific has done a  great deal for the country by offering  such satisfactory rates to San Francisco.  The Great Northern has done nothing.  Last December it would not put in a spur  from the depot to the steamboat landing,  tf> facilitate the transfer of ore at Bonner's Ferry. But for the action of the  Canadian Pacific the country would have  been bottled up between the Great North-  era and the .Spokane ic Northern. Now  these, having lost the trade, are likely to  take some energetic,steps to recover it."  On the generalr.outlook, Mr. Carrel had  also something to say: "The San Francisco smelter has 'made no difference in  its business on account of the depression'  in silver. It is going right ahead and is  ready to handle all the silver ore it can  get. It is glad to get the ores of this  country. Most of the ore it smelts comes  from Utah. Silver is all right. It has  already touched its lowest point.;. Tlie!  market for silver in India is improving.  India has made bigger purchases of silver  since  the  metal   was demonetized  there  NOT   TO    BE   SIDETRACKED.  the  stocks of silver on hand; no visible stock  on hand,; as there is with'''copper.'...The  silver market cannot be controlled by big  stocks already produced. There is no  danger of a big fall in its price from this  cause. It will be regulated solely by demand and supply.  "The demand' for silver used in the  ���arts"is about stationary, at least it has  not increased of late. The demand for  gold in the arts is increasing all the time,  but the demand for gold as money is increasing even faster. More gold was  coined into money last year than was  produced, proving that bullion had been  turned into coin."  Mr. Carrel expressed his belief that  good times were coining for the Slocan  this winter, and it is needless to say was  enthusiastic about the ultimate prospects  of West Kootenay as a whole.  A Deal That Will Make New Denver  Town of Slocan District.  The promoters of the Nakusp ic Slocan  railway are supposed to be the owners of.  or largely interested in, the laud at the  tliree forks of Carpenter creek, and as  there is almost as much money to be made  in selling town lots as in building railways, it was generally supposed that the  line of the Nakusp & Slocan railway  would be so located that New Denver  would be left to one side and without  railway facilities. This, however, is not  likely to take place. In all probability  the railway will run through New Denver, and that place, and not Three Forks,  will   be   made   the   "railway   town"   of  Slocan district.  ������ The line i.s located from Three Forks  down to the canyon, aud from the head  of the lake to the mouth of Wilson creek,  which leaves a gap of seven or eight miles  to be located. The line through this gap  will not be located for a couple of weeks.  Graders are now at work at Tliree Forks,  and the entire distance to the head of the  lake will be covered within three weeks:  in fact, contractor McGillivray expects to  have every one of his 800 graders on Slocan lake by November 1st. Tracklaying  is progressing at the rate ot half a mile a  day, and by Saturday night the big trestle  three miles west of Nakusp will have rails  laid across it. From there to the summit  the grading is practically completed, and  the tracklayers will not be'delayed "by  the graders. All the rails for the first  twenty-four miles are at: Revelstoke, and  the steamboat company is "making every  effort to get them to Nakiisp before navigation closes. The water, however, is reported almost as low at Revelstoke now  as when navigation closed last year.  Fourteen, instead of ten, miles of the  Revelstoke branch will be built this fall,  and it is understood that an effort will be  made to keep'' the Revelstoke route open  this, winter. If there is business to .justify  it, the Nakusp & Slocan railway will be  operated during the winter.  such as claret and sherry, are apparently  forsaken   in   public.    It is champagne at  the dinner or theater party,at night, and  it is a cocktail or some liquor in the afternoon.   The  home dinner and  lunch  are  the   occasions   when    the   regular   table  wines are in use.   -There are hundreds of  women who drink to this extent and are  by  no means counted  as  victims  of the  liquor appetite.    Where they  will   be in  live years is not safe to predict.    Perhaps  they  will   be  drinking brandy,   whisky,  cologne, anything with  alcohol   in   it, lo  satisfy their mad craving.   And then they  flie   in  delirium   tremens, and the doctor  will   kindly shut  the door on the family  skeleton and sign a certificate with a long  Latin name of some disease of the nerves,  those modern scapegoats of the ills which  flesh is heir to.  MUBDER ON THE. SALMON RIVEB.  STEPHEN    HAMLIN    KICKED   TO    DEATH  OVER   A   GAME  OF   CARDS.  The   Notorious   Charlie   Ross   Implicated A  Warrant    Out   for   Billy   O'Brien    on   the  Charge   of   Murder Both    are    Bad   Men  and Should  be  Punished.  Domestic Snakes.  'In Brazil rats have multiplied to such  an extent that the inhabitants are obliged to train a certain kind of snake to  exterminate them. The domestic snake  is the giboia, a small species of boa, about  twelve feet in length, and as thick as a  man's arm. They can be bought in the  markets of llio Janeiro, Bah hi, etc., at  prices ranging from one to two dollars.  These snakes are quite tame and harmless. Their motion is very slow, and they  usually pass the whole day asleep, coiled  up in the sun. But when night comes on  the giboia is suddenly transformed: a  new instinct seems to possess it; it makes  its way to every part of the house, with a  caution antl cunning of which wc hardly  suspect it capable. It even manages'to  creep up between the rafters of the roof,  and under the Moor, which is not at all incredible, when we consider how the  houses there are constructed.  The giboia is now in ambush, if a rat  appears, it is doomed. With one bound  the snake is upon it, catches it by the  nape of the neck, and crushes it. As  snakes seldom eat, even when at liberty,  tlie giboia does not kill the rats on account of hunger, but solely from instinct,  and in this way is of incalculable service.  A New Use for Reporters.  A  recent 'attempt* at  train robbery  in  Missouri was baffled by the bandits being  betrayed to the police. Among those who  joined the gang for the purpose of ''giving them away" was a. newspaper reporter. This opens up new possibilities.  The efforts of newspaper reporters to disguise themselves as tramps, beggars,  book agents, bichloridians, lunatics, and  soon, are familiar to the reading public.  But these attempts, meritorious a.s they  are in the city editor's eyes, serve im high  ami useful purpose. This latest effort,  however has a practical sound. It is not  only worthy of imitation, but it gives the  reporter a reason for existence. The most  profound and optimistic students of sociology have hitherto been tempted to despair when contemplating the newspaper  reporter. Now he can be classified somewhere between the stool-pigeon and the  detective.  A Level-Headed Silver Man.  Senator. .Perkins of California speaking  on the repeal bill  before the senate suggested that congress first repeal the purchase clause; second, declare it to be the  unfaltering purpose of the United States  tt) maintain  the double standard;   third,  open the mints to American silver, with a  minting charge sufficient to keep coinage  within   the   demands   of trade;   fourth,  coin no more gold pieces, of'less than $5  denomination and issue no more currency  of less denomination; fifth,'issue circulation notes to the full equivalent of coin in  the treasury; sixth, make clear the power  and duty of the secretary of the treasury  to purchase gold; seventh, preserve those  features of the national  banking.system  that give security and universal currency,  without  requiring everlasting   maintenance of the public debt; eighth, provide  for a. commission   of  monetary experts,  not connected with  the government, tt)  keep it advised on all necessary matters  relating to currency.  The Great Comstock Almost Deserted.  A  business  man  of  Virginia,   Nevada.,  says matters have: so shaped themselves  on the Comstock thatnota whistle will be  heard   on   the   lode'by   the   10th  of this  month.  There are only about 200 men employed, and   these   few  cannot   possibly  tide over  the  hundreds  of  unemployed.  He said that he had  been  in business in  Virginia for  twenty  years,  antl that he  was   compelled   to   close   down   for   the  reason that his business had been nothing  but credit for some time back ami he had  to   suspend    in   order   to   save   himself.  Others will doubtless follow unless immediate action   i.s  taken   to  put the unemployed   to  work.    The  last draft at the  Chollar virtually closed   the mine down,  for where there  weve  1*50 men employed  only a handful remain.    Winter i.s coming  on and  harder times under existing circumstances may reasonably be expected  unless the situation changes.  Strike on the Kootenay Bonanza.  Reports from Toad mountain are encouraging in the extreme. When Mr.  Harvey went up he set a few men to  strip the eroppings between the Silver  King and the shaft on the Kootenay Bonanza, at a point about-HX) feet from the  old work on the Kootenay Bonanza. A  little work laid bare ns fine a showing as  has been found ou the mine. The lead at  that point is forty-live feet across, solid  ore. This proves that theshowitig on the  Koolenay Bonanza continues for at least  <1(X) feet of equal gni.de ami width with  I what was first uncovered.  Mr. Fisher on the Slocan Output.  ; Mr. Fisher of the Freddie Leo is on his  ;\yay'to Tacoma to. manage n. gold property  for a Tacoma syndicate.   He will not be  back in West Kootenay till next summer  at least.   The Freddie Lee has been leased  to _the, w.ell-kiiowu Cceur _d'Alene miner  John  Fitzwilliani, and  the company for  the time has ceased to operate it.  "When  I get to Tacoma," said Mr. Fisher, "I will  have   something  to  say   to   the   papers  about this country that will attract the  interest of mining men.   The fault with  a majority of the people'who write up a  mining country is that they know nothing  about mining,  and   what they  have  to  say disgusts instead -of  attract mining  men. ���'Here i.s another country,' they say,  'boomers are trying to engineer a rush  into.'    I have had  occasion  lately," continued Mr. Fisher, "to make  a practical  estimate for a practical man of the number of men actually at work in the Slocan,  and of the-probable-outputs of the  mines  with  their  present openings and  without any further development work  being clone.    I found, as nearly a.s I could  estimate  it, that  there  were NO men at  work, and   that the output of the'mines  would not be less than 5)00 tons a month  from now till the first of July next.  That  is   at   tlie   present   price  of   silver.     Of  course  if silver  improves or if improvements in transportation become available  the output will be very much larger.    No,  I cannot say anything about the individual   mines  on which my calculations are  based,  as   I  do  not care   to   talk   about  other people's properties in that way."  American Paper.  Eighteen months ago it was prophesied  that if the American paper .maker once  got his foot fairly into I.nglaiid, the competition to which our English makers  have been subjected at the hands of German antl Scandinavian makers would  turn out tt> be mere child's play in comparison with the light against the more  enterprising and business-like Yankee.  Brother Jonathan has begun to compete,  now in real earnest. His paper is gootl  antl his prices are low- antl no wonder.  He has no coals tt) pay for, antl he can  send paper from New York to the Thames  for little more than half the railway rate  from Manchester tt) Loudon. Anyone  wht) has seen the immense quantities of  American paper of all sorts that have  been unloaded of late in the Albert docks  by steamships from the United States  will probably wonder how much longer  the Kngiish mills can hope to struggle on  with tlieir obsolete machinery antl high  prices.         Tippling Women in New York.  The statement has been often made that  New York society women arts more given  to drinking intoxicating liquors than the  women of any other city in the country.  This is unquestionably true if the range  of comparison be limited to northern antl  western places. It may lie that the traditional use of liquor in the south brings  its cities nearer to the mark. One thing,  however, is absolutely certain, and that  i.s that iu no city iu the l'nited Slates.  San Francisco, perhaps, excepted, is there  so general a public indulgence in wine by  women as in Sew York. San Francisco,  furthermore, is not exactly a parallel  cast;, for tin; class of women who drink in  public places then; are of a distinctly different order from the society women of  New York.    The more harmless of wines.  Kaslo is Incorporated.  '���'"When  a  man's single he lives at his  ease;   when a man's married his troubles  begin" is an adage that applies to towns  as .well as to individuals.   A   town  may  have   a   fairly   happy  life   as  a   young  bachelor with a gootl many unpaid debts  a   good   deal   of " pleasure   seeking,   and  many  brilliant opportunities   and   prospects  which it depends upon the future  to realize.    But when it weds itself to a  mayor and corporation the serious  business of life has begun and all the frets and  worries of wedded life present themselves  tt) its unaccustomed gaze.   And although  a town has a  certain advantages  which  cannot   be   realized    by   the   individual  except through the medium of the divorce,  court, of changing the parties to the contract at stated, periods-.for better or for  worse; still, however, much it may desire  to do' so,  it can  never again escape from  its position as a connubial community and  retire once  more  into  the .freedom and  carelessnes   of   bachelor   life.     All   the  'argument's which may be .brought to bear  against premature marriage, antl may be  ...brought  against   the   premature... incorporation   of   a   town.    Bachelor   friends  who    have    either   a   rooted'prejudice  against     matrimony,    or    are Waiting  until    they    possess    an    assured  : position    before    they   .take    the   decisive  step look on ami smile.   ������Tlieir congratulation's: might be construed as 'condolences,'  but the young couple,   recking little of  other people's 'opinion, are wrapped up in  their .own bliss and care nothing for the  opinion of any save tlie ���������'('jar ties  to  the  contract,   who'are, to'begin  with  at all-  events,'perfectly agreed as to the advisability of the step.  Kaslo is now a municipality. At is  wedded for life to a mayor and 'corporation.' It has one circumstance to reckon  with which does not usually occur to  those entering into the married state. It  has a grown up family ready made for it  to provide for. A mayor and corporation  involve family cares which a young town  may well, ponder before'assuming, cares  and 'expenses that will make the weary  taxpayer knit his brow and wonder  whether the felicity of being a young  husband is not counter-balanced by the  trouble of 'providing for a large and increasing family.  And there is no honeymoon. No sooner  is connubial bliss a fact, than up start the  numberless bickerings which make up the  sum of-domestic life, and-over .-which the  experienced householder sighs and.ponders. At the same time there is something even in the confirmed bachelor-  breast that responds'to the eager plunge  into domestic felicity however premature."  and gives "rise, to the hope that the result  may conform rather to the anticipations  of the young- couple than to the fears  wdiich wisdom and experience 'make in-  vitable.   The Great Slocan Boulder.  The enormous boulder of solid high-'  grade galena which was locator!'last year  in the Slocan by Jack Cockle, otherwise  known as Black Jack, anrl sold bv him to  W. I.). Middaugh for $2000 cash 'is to be  broken up and shipped.- This boulder is  calculated to contain 125 -tons of ore. and  atone time when it was thought that  wind could move anything in the Slocan,  there was a scheme on foot to ship it en  bloc tt) the World's Fair. Now the outside world will have to be content with  photographs of this extraordinary phen-  emenou, for it will, shortly be mined antl  shipped to the San Francisco smelter.  Arrangements have been ���made to make a  special shipment of it alone. A special  train will transfer it Lo Vancouver from  Revelstoke. At every stage of the proceedings it will be photographed and the  photos used to advertise the country.  In a Nutshell.  For a nation with an interest-hearing  debt of $_._o().U(M).(KMi; with states antl  cities owing as much more, with its private citizens owing as much more, with  corporations owing a.s much more, with  all their debts payable in either of two  metals a.s the debtors might elect: for the  representatives of such a nation to decree;  that one of these metals shall no longer  retain its debt-paying function, that all  debts shall be; paid in the other metal, is  to defy every law of justice and business  honesty; it is to violate; all existing e-on-  tracts, ami the; result is the merciless  spoliation e>f the; pe;ople.  Public MeetinK at Kaslo.  A public meeting at Kaslo on Saturday  evening developed the fact that of all  Kaslo's residents only seven cou It I qualify  I'or alderiiie;n and mayor. Tom Devlin  and Adam McKay, both of the; Lelnnd  hotel; Al Cameron, the teamster: Sam  Green, the merchant, ami Dave; Kane,  tlit; real estate; man. were compelled to  accept office iuncii against their will. Bob  Green antl George Kant; will contest for  the mayoralty.  West Kootenay's fair name for'law and  order has been tarnished by a revolting  and brutal murder, which has taken place  at Pete Larson's headquarters on Salmon'  river; known as Salmon City.  The scene of the crime was a saloon'in  Salmon City situated near the forks of -  Salmon river and about two miles Irani  where the Nelson <fc Fort Sheppard railway crosses the north fork of the Salmon.  Besitles being the contractors' headquarters it is the rendezvous of the placer  miners on the Salmon antl Hall creek.  It  appears   that   the  victim,  Stephen  Hamlin, who was a camp cook, had drawn  a considerable sum of money, some $100  in all.    lie made a trip to Nelson and remitted $100 to his wife.   He then returned  to Salmon City and, although it is not certain  that  he  had $800 on his person, he  was  nevertheless  flush  of cash.    On the  afterne>on;_of   the   20th   he   showed   hi.s  money,  which   he   kept  in   an   ordinary  clasp purse,'to a. restaurant keeper in the  camp,  and,   taking out twenty   dollars,  said   he   was either /going to  win  some  more or lose that much.   That night he  went over to a saloon- and sat clown in a  poker game .with four nien, "named Charlie;  .Boss, a man called ..Rube,-Charles Cameron  and Billy O'Brien.���.���-/The game'.'was afterwards joined   by ii  man of the name of  Leslie, but lie does hot seem to have had  any part in the  fight which   resulted in  Ha in I ill's fleath.    There wore also present  in" tlie- saloon-Peterson;  James   Bourkc.  Leslie and Sisson.    The evidence given at  the inquest, points clearly to the fact that  it was floss's in ten tion to. .do'the man up  for all he had. .Ross is;a notorious -ruffian,  well  known   during the construction of  the main line of the Canadian Pacific. He  is a gain bier a ticl illicit \yliisky.seller and  rumor has it has caused tlie death of five  or six men  on  the other side.   He came  into    West   Kootenay   from   the   Cteur  d'Alenes.    Hamlin had beeii drinking but  was not apparently intoxicated, and held  his own at the game, and in fact was winning money.    Tlie game was a tough one,  and  a good  deal of-quarreling went on.  Boss was seen! to extract something from  Hamlin's hip pocket and'put'-i't into  his  own vest pocket; it Is supposed that this  was  Hamlin's   purse..   Some   time   afterwards Boss, apparently with  the  intention of making  a   row,   claimed   that he  had lost an express check and insisted on  every  man at the  table being searched.  They all submitted to have the contents  of tlieir  pockets  turned  over   including  Hamlin; but while he was being searched  he    found    that    some    of    his. ������ money  was    gone.      He    immediately   accused  O'Brien   of  having   stolen   it.    On   that  O'Brieii   got   up   and   "made   as    if   he  would   go    out   by   the    back    door   of  the  saloon,   but   before   lie could   clo   so  Hamlin..got  up...and stood  between   him  and   the door to prevent him going out.  O'Brieii thereupon knocked Hamlin flown  ���with his fist, and coining up alongside of  where he was   lying  kicked   him   on   lhe  head,    lie   was  then   pulled  away    from  the   prostrate    man    by   Sisson   against  whom he maele no t'esistance.  From the effects, of this kick Hamlin  died two days later. Between the time  lie reeieved the kick ami the time be died  he was in a stupor complaining of a pain  iu the head. At the inquest held on the  body by coroner Arthur antl James Foot.  li. I'.). Young, Charles Griffin, James  O'Connor, Alex, dimming and Louis  Olsen jury it was found that "The; saitl  Stephen Hamlin died on or about September 2Sth. I.S'.W, from the effects of a kick  received from one William O'Brien in a  fight'em Tuesday night. September 20th,  I.SO.'i." Nothing was found on deceased's  body except his clothes, a pocket comb .and  a pocket book. His money was gone. A  warrant was immediately'issued for the  arrest of Billy O'Brien on a charge of  murder but his whereabouts are not  known, lie was last seen walking iu the  direction of Nelson, but the probabilities  are he has crossed the line. Charlie Boss  also skipped across the line. The chief of  police in Spokane wired the authorities  liere that Charlie Boss was in Spokane,  ami they could have him if he was wa nted.  But although there is little doubt he was  implicated in the crime it would not be  easy to prove his complicity.  It is to be; hoped the provincial Government will spare neither time nor expense  to bring the authors of this outrage to  justice. All along the boundary line  there is a rich mineral country which will  always attract prospectors antl miners.  And if law antl order there; is not to be degraded to the level of the worst camps in  the States, it must, be made known once  for all that it is not sufficient for a criminal to cross the line to escape justice.

Gladstone has recently addressed a.  public meeting in  l.dinburgh at which, it  ���was   reported   in   .American   papers,   he  ���would advocate  the immediate abolition  of tlie house oi* lords.    JMr. Gladstone was  not likely to, and. as a. inatter of fact, ditl  not do anything of   the  kind.     .He has  gootl   reason  to  be  at  enmity with tlie  lords.    Me  has  given  eight years of his  life to forward   the ca.ii.se of home  rule.  .After a struggle of colossal difficulty he  lias brought the;  nation round to his way  of thinking; but instead of the  triumph  of his policy he was,  from his own point  of view, entitled to expect, he finds himself   face  to   face  with the    determined  opposition of an unrepresentative antl rcc-  oncileable second chamber.    Me is saddled  -with  the  burden   of  a   new  struggle, of  -which, at his time of life, he cannot hope  to see the issue.    He might well broil Ic out  in .condemnation  of   tlie  lords.     But although Mv. Gladstone is a man antl has a  right to be angry, he is also a statesman  and not likely to show his wrath without  a purpose.    The house oi* lords has acted  entirely  within  its  rights.    It might be  for the advantage of the state that the  lords  should   be  abolished   or reformed.  But the question is not yet ripe for settlement.    The people must confirm the mandate given   to  Mr.  Gladstone at the last  election; the lords must define tlieir attitude  to  that,   before  the   question   of  their    continuance    can    reasonable   be  brought up.    And  Mr.   Gladstone   knows  that this is so. and that, although a few  years mean much to him, they mean but  little   in   the   history  of   Great  .Britain.  And   having  reconciled   himself   to   the  odium  and contumely  of his own  class  throughout his great career as a reformer,  lie is patriot enough to reconcile hiniself  to' death  in comparative failure, rather  than risk everything by a fruitless striving after premature success.   Every great  Avork of reform to which  he  has set  his  Land  has been justified  by results.    He  surely  of all men, can afford to leave his  .-work  to posterity and  hi.s reputation to  history, without requiring  to  dazzle his  contemporaries, *vnd silence calumny  by  a brilliant exit.

Moelern  economic thought has some new light to  shed upon this problem and approaches it  from a new point of view. It has proved  that production, antl consequently trade  th) not depend merely on the cheapness of  labor but ou the excellence of that labor,  antl that in consequence every attempt to  lower lhe condition ami standard of coin-  fort of wage-earners is a blow directed  not at the selfish interests of labor as  against those of lhe public, but against  the productive capabilities of the country  itself. Cheap labor i.s ultimately the  dearest. A low standard among wa go-  earners may mean a present and immediate gain, but it means a much greater  deferred, but certain loss. Consequently  those who are in the iieltl to protect labor  L'rom decrease in wages duo, tt) sweating  and combinations, are not really protecting the selfish interests of laborers, but  tire protecting the growtli of industry  itself. It is not tho fact of Chinese cheap  labor, whether the laborers are Chinese,  Belgians, Germans. Italians, or coolies  that can ruin industry, but the danger of  white labor being dragged down to the  same standard. The victory iu manufactures has hitherto been to the Anglo  Saxon, not because he can do more work  for less wages than others, but because  he can do bettor work aud insists on having more for it. There are very few people who realize this.  Gonsidkraulk attention has been  drawn to Tin-' Trirunk's article on the  Korieiture clause in the mining law.  Numerous hair-breadth escapes from its  operations have boon related. But those  who have not escaped have maintained a  discreet silence. The recorders are tho  repositories of many a secret in connection  with this matter: which makes it a cause  of congratulation that they are to be  trusted. To our certain knowledge largo  bribes have been offered recorders in  West Kootenay to antedate certificates.  It is an intolerable system; and tlie government must lind some means of remedying it. Jtisto be hoped that those who  are more particularly interested in this  matter will not allow it to drop but will  bring all the available pressure to boar to  have the jiresent scandalous and dangerous condition of the law remedied.  UP   TO   SNUPF.  Twenty-one years ago the 'Winnipeg-  Free Press-was founded byW. P. Luxton.  For twenty-one years his whole effort has  been to build 'up the Free Press, and how  he has succeeded- the'public, not only  throughout Manitoba,' but throughout  the whole of ���Canada, are aware, it became necessary that $-10,000 should be  added to'the capital of the newspaper.  This money was procured from the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, who  Avere, at that time in opposition to the  ���provincial government, as was also the  Free Press.  It was not very long however before  the authorities of the Canadian Pacific  found that Mr. Luxton was not amenable  to discipline. The first cause of friction  was the Dominion election. But that  passed. Then the Canadian Pacilic antl  the provincial government made up their  differences, and because Mr. Luxton  won lei not bate a jot of his independent  position, he has been literally turned into  the street ami the creation of twenty-one  years work conliscatod. His place has  been taken by a journalistic doll who will  speak when the strings are pulled.  Were a newspaper simply a mercantile  agency for the disseminating of news  there might boa. feeling of pity for Mr.  Luxton. but there would be no recourse  and no remedy for such tin atrocious prostitution of the press. But a newspaper i.s  more than that; it is an organism which  draws its nourishment from the approbation of public opinion, and whose nervous  system is the personality that directs it.  Destroy the diet antl nervous system at  one blow antl the organism must decay  and die, or continue to live a.s a sickly invalid on a regimen of subsidies. Consequently such a coil]) as has just been consummated in Winnipeg carries within  itself the certainty of its failure. .Some  years ago Henry Labouchere was the life  of the World, '.dnumd V'ates' paper.  Yates and Labouchere quarreled. "My  dear  Edmund," said  the sage of .queen  A London Paper on Cleveland.  The London  Standard, in commenting  editorially on president Cleveland's letter  to governor Northeu concerning  the repeal bill in the senate, says:  "We  have no 'doubt that   Mr.   Cleveland's letter will have the result in America which people, here 'think tind expect  it to have.    There is a refreshing down-  rightness about hi.s utterances, but once  or. twice in his scorn of chicane and double  dealing, he has forgotten, to some extent,  the constitutional  limits within-which he  can exert his influence over the lawmakers  for good.   This makes his utterances-bear'  a peculiar reseinbhuiceto those of emperor  William.    The senate will be more ..angry  with Mr. Cleveland than ever, or pretend  to be so.    The letter, therefore,' seems tt)  be an  error   in   tactics.     Moreover   Mv,  Cleveland   fails  to hint  what should  be  tlone to lighten the stock of silver or a. vert  a crisis.   As the inatter stands,-, it would  unquestionably pay the union  better to  go wholly over to silver. An honest silver  dollar is far likelier to restore confidence  than a false gold one, and Mr. Cleveland's  gold  dollar  would   be   pinchbeck   unless  lie should raise a large loan.    In the end  there must be a compromise, and it would  be wiser to discuss a modus vivendi than  to scold." ���   Asiatic Humor.  Asiatics are not without their humor.  Rudyard Kipling tells the tale of how a  holy man  preached   Lo a wild   tribe (the  tribe,   as  a  inatter   of   detail,   'was   the  Afl'redi   Zalckah   Khel),   antl   reproached  them with not praying at the tombs of  holy men. and the  tribe, deeply moved,  but not having a  holy man's tomb within  reasonable distance, there and then killed  their preacher, buried him in a convemicnt  spot, and then paid  it a visit and prayed  eiver his remains.    And  there is a parallel  story that conies to  us   from Cilgit, our  furf'herest outpost towards (he Pamirs, as  to a great figure carved in the rock there.  The figure used  to  be a  demon  who devoured   half   the   men   antl   beasts   that  passed.    A holy man prayed so hard that  it   was  tunieel   to stone.    Asked   by   the  grateful   inhabitants  if   there   was   any  chance of its coming to life again, he said  no, if they buried his hemes before if when  lie died.    Asked where he was going next,  lie said Shassa or Turkestan, antl as the  address  seemed a bit vague, the inhabitants simplified  matters  by burying his  bones there antl then.  A Victoria Missionary Starts in the Business  "With Obscene Pictures.  George .1. Cook has been arrested in  Victoria by constable McDonald and  charged with having in his possession a  pair of spy glasses, which wore stolen  from W. lluxtable.au oilerou tliesteainer  Islander, when she was at Port Simpson  on her last trip. Cook claims that he purchased them from a. man whom he can  point tint to the police. It was just by  accident that the glasses were found.  Cook hael been noticed wandering around  the streets rather late at night antl, the  police had a. suspicion that he might have  been taking a hand in the recent burglaries. Sergeant Walker accompanied  by constable Walker visited Cook's  room at the Colonial Motropole and  as soon as they entered they 'came to  the conclusion that although they might-  not have the burglar, they at least had  the goods that had been stolen. In a box  were found new goods of all descriptions.  There were coats, boots, umbrellas antl  many other articles that answered the  description of those that weve missing.  Constable Walker remained in the room  antl the sergeant went out to look for  Cook. Cook returning to his room found  the constable there antl threatened him  with all kinds of punishment for having  entered his apartment. lie claimed to be  a provincial police detective and said he  had a perfect right to be out at nights.  The goods he claimed had been purchased  a nil to prove this he showed the officer  bills for the goods from different wholesale merchants. These merchants were  visited and they stated that Cook had  purchased goods from them. The queer  part of it is that many of these goods  answered the description of those stolen.  There were umbrellas in the room that  were an exact cemnterpart of those taken  from the Westside and au oilskin coat  similar to the one taken from W. Car-  michael's.  Cook, since he left Victoria some months  age), litis been living in the villages on the  Skooiia. He litis been endeavoring to  Christianize the savages of the far north,  and it is said his prospects of becoming a  full-fleilged missionary were vei'.v bright,  ���bulging from what was found iu his  pocket, the average man would say that  Cook would not be a very successful mis-  sionarv. The collection of articles which  he t:arried in his pockets was considerably  larger than the ordinary missionary or in  tact any man usually carries. There wore  half a citizen or more penknives, two or  tliree pocket books, gloves antl other  small things. The penknives especially  were of the kind that would not encourage the Indians to think of things  heavenly. They had small picture, glasses  in the handles. In fact they were very  obscene. He claims that he can prove  that he came by everything found in his  possession in a lawful manner.  Since his arrival in British Columbia.  Cook's life litis been a checkered one.  Iii England.he belonged.to what is known  as a Christian police 'force.���' Upon his arrival here he started as a contractor and  then he branched out into business, having at one time two stores in operation.  He announced himself tis a candidate for  alderman; but for some reason was not  elected. Shortly afterwards he failed  and left Victoria.  A New Railway Under Construction.

Telegraph, operators in  New York are  discussing with considerable ���interest the  recent debate in the English house of commons'concerning .-the- rule  by  which  all  candidates i'or positions in the telegraph  dopartnieiit'ure conipelleri to submit their  teeth to the examination of a dental surgeon before being accepted, and  the  refusal of the  postmaster general  to hold  the rule in abeyance pending the investigations of a special committee.    The rule  in question is based, it is claimed, upon a  new medical theory that  unsound  teeth  are affected by electricity, and as a consequence operators whose molars are not  in first-class condition are apt to become  rattled and   confused, and  thus liable to  make mistakes.    It  is also claimed   that  where   eye   teeth   are   affected   the   telegraphers, .especially in the case of women,  are. apt. to suffer from failing eyesight or  from weakness of sight after a Jong day's  work.      The  rule,   however,   appears   to  work   many   hardships.      Advices    from  London say that investigation set on foot  since the matter was brought before the  house of commons show that numbers of  candidates for positions in the telegraph  service have been compelled   to  dispense  with   teeth  that  were absolutely sound.  In one case a young woman   was refused  examination  papers   until   she;  consented  to ha ve eight I eeth drawn, and the molars  wen; afterwards pronoune-eid by the consulting  stalT of a   dental   hospital   to   he  perfectly sound,    in another case a  male  operator lost fourgood double tcesfli under  similar circumstances.    The telegraphers  111 ronton to appeal  to the courts, bin, are  afraid of losing their positions.  WIOMI  (Patents applied for in Canada and U.S.)  Boiler.

A woina.li wtis walking slowly down one;  oL' Llie stroots lending1 i'roni the Sti-tnid to  tho I.mbtiiikiiieiit. It wtis ti c-lotir, starlit  night, and instead ot* driving homo nt  once on leaving' the theater, tho actress  had allowed her footsteps to wander towards tho river.  It wa.s nob every woman who would  have ctirod to go there alone tit that lute  hour. Hut this woman was not in tho  habit of allowing seeonel thoughts to  interfere with tho impulses of lhe moment. She wanted to be alone to think,  and the cool breeze from the ri\or blmt  beat against her brow seemed to clear hor  thoughts.  She was a handsome, commanding \vo-  jiitin, and still young. But her lace wtis  clouded a.s she 'paused and hali'-uncon-  sciously watched the long, shuddering  streaks of light, flung frombho lamps on  the Kmbunknient across the glittering  surface of the river. She was preoccupied  with hor thoughts: and these, to .judge  by the .strange, weary look on hor lace,  were hardly pleasant ones.  Suddenly   her  reverie   wtis   rudely  dis  turbed  ���'ilonio, swo-eot Ilomo!"  It is a  beautiful  song,-but  it ditl not  sound boaui iful now.    For a high-pitched  voice, with, tt tendency to crack on every  third note or so. is calculated to discount  .- the effect of the finest words.  I_ven as she sting of homo this creature  of the pavement was shivering- in her  .rags, with a dull, despairing helplessness  at near.. Hor one hope was bo pick up'a  few coppers���just enough to satisfy the  cra.vingdevi I within lier with more brandy,  and forget!  And her thoughts kept turning em a  temptation that assailed hor, the temptation'to end it till. Tho river has such a  fascination for these pariahs. Day and  night the tide never sleeps. Day and  night its alluring voice i.s never still.  She know that sooner or later a day  would come to hor when, like other sisters  in sin, she would 'creep away into the  loneliness of the chirk to die���this woman  who sting of home.  And the other tired woman watched  her. and understood the silent tragedy,  for sho felt dimly thtit such a tragedy  might some day come into her own life  when she would take hor fate into her  own  hands and make an end of it all.  Was it pity or was ib loathing that actuated her as she thrust a glittering coin  into the singer's hand, and. as the other's  fingers closed greedily on the gift, passed  quickly on?  She wtis in a strange mood, tind that  song had jarred with her thoughts --at a,  crisis in iior life when she was on the  brink of an intended act that, would  wreck another's future. It had recall (id  to hor memories which she long ago had  tried to fight down into the grave, of  things forgotten.  Sho was not a sentimental woman. Sho  had recked little of the cost she paid to  attain the position she sought -the position of ease, luxury and lame.  To hor ambition she had sacrificed the  only love she ever felt in hor selfish life,  when she shattered the faith of a man  avIio believed in lier, in her truth, her  purity of womanhood���years ago. Of her  own deliberate choice sho had come to  that mart called Vanity Fair, where  ���women sell themselves body and soul.  No; she wtis hy no means a .sentimental  Avoinan. Vet there were: times when her  success seemed to have tit its core the bitterness of the Dead sea- times when this  worldling felt heart-weary of her little  world.  Only such memories die hard.  And to-night they had mastered her,  the more powerful, perhaps, in  that she  Branches  _ST __!__, SO 1ST    _3_5.____STO_H_:;  Cor. Maker and Stanley Sts.  CANADA ��� Victoria,    Vancouver.

She veali'/.ed in that moment that she  ctirod nothing for tho glamour and incense of flattery with which she was surfeited, in comparison witli his devotion:  sho felt that sho would have sacrificed  anything ��� everything the world contained for her, could she; but ransom the  past and begin it till over again with him  in the old mutual trust tind love���chat  love she had cast away!  Only, sho said to herself, wearily, this  repentance came too late���too late!  Hut oven as sho said those words ti sudden hope leapt into hor mind���  Was it too hi to after till?  Sho remembered his passionate wooing:  his love was surely too strong to have  died. If she were to go back to him in all  humility, ho would take her iu his strong  arms, just as in tho old days, and whisper  that, nothing through good or ill report  had killed  his love.  Nol it was nob too late���too late! The  last four years had been years of madness,  which they would forgot for over. She  wtis wiser now. Sho would go back to  him. and ho would .welcome his wilful,  erring love without one reproach.  In some quiet corner of the country,  the world forgetting, they could live their  life solely for each other.  To this tired .woman of the world the  prospect seemed like a glimpse of.heaven.  There were tears in her eyes as she  thought of the days when sho had won  his love. Oh! It till ctinio..back to her  with such vividness, for her eyes wore  looking far beyond that glittering avenue  of the city's lights and saw only a picture  of the old life.  ���'Ii; is nob too late���I defy fate to part  us!" this woman whispered, to herself in  tho hansom all the way home.  ���*! will win li im back, for his love can-  nob have' died!"  Sho did not even trouble to look at the  few letters her maid brought her, as she  sttb dowu before her writing table in that  costly furnished little room. She had two  letters to write; they engrossed all her  thoughts.  The first one site wrote ran thus:  "I have changed my mind. Wo wore  both mad, especially you, to think your,  infatuation for mo could last tit tho cost  of self-respect. .1 do not protend I am  doing this out of sympathy for your wife.  I will not play the hypocrite/ Vet I'or her  sake'-T am glad to write this loiter, for I  am not utterly heartless: and what would  life be for her if you tuiel 1 carried out our  sinful intention tind eloped together?  How coiiid sho bear the cruel tongues -  she who loves you and whom you meant  to desert for me? We have been playing  with fire. I did so with my eyes open;  before I burn my fingers I withdraw. I  do not love; you. I only accepted your  proposal because it offered novelty to a  weary woman of the world. I was tired i  of the stage, tired of the present life, and  you were rich tind your oiler seemed inviting. I never loved you; I think you  knew that till along. Now I am exorcising my feminine prerogative of changing  my mind. I have other plans. Someday  you may be grateful I wrote this, when  you have learned thtita love given i.s better than ti love bought.    I hope so.  ������(.'LAIIil'-."  This letter she addressed to tho honorable l.rnesb Vaughn, the .Jasmine club.  The other letter was much shorter:  ".M v Daruxo:    I love you tind I cannot  do  without you.    Don't tell  nie it i.s too  late.    I loved you, .Jtick, even when 1  refused   you,  four years ago.    I   was   mad,  foolish,   wicked���what  you will.    Now  I  throw my pride to the winds and ask you  ���can you lind ib in your heart  to forgive  nie?    I feel I have nntquite lost your love,  even after these four years of silence, that  though   I  deserve it so  little you love me  still.    Kvev your loving, foolish.  "C.'l.AlltK."  She would send it to the old address,  she said to herself. She had not forgotten  that, despite the four silent years, lie  would reply that he was still fvee, for  nothing had changed his love Lhat  had sent him happiness.  She  felt all  this and   believo(  stinctively.  With  a ghid   heart  letters, and sent thoni  once.    Thank God ! hoi  were ovoi  a tall?  Then sho turned without interest to  hor correspondence.  Tho first letter that she opened was in  a strange handwriting. The contents  came to hor with the force of a blow in  tho face.  Jt was a request for hor to conic tind  see ti mail who had her name ever on his  lips, as he lay dying in poverty and alone  in some humble lodging in London���ti man  who had tried to make ti living by authorship, and had tailed: a man broken down  by excess into which, tho landlady believed, some hopeless love affair had  driven him.  lie wtis always mentioning her name;  would she, tis an old friend, come and see  him?  , As tho purport of the letter came home  to hor and icy despair gripped this woman's heart.  '"Oh. Jack ! my Jack !" she cried with ti  moan.    "But. no! it is absurd!    Me is not  must have hor corsets from Mine. This  tind her slippers from .Monsieur That.  "]\Iy feet aud my. waist tiro iny best  points," she-would say, "and I ought to  bo allowed to make tho most of thoni."  Vou should have heard that jade hold  her own against; hor parents! She made  thoni "stand 'round," a.s the unhappy  l-vtiriste often said during their matutinal  confidences. And so they had only one  desire���to got Habybel married a.s soon as  possible. But this wtis easier said than  done. Twice she: had just missed achance.  The first time the fault lay with the dowry,  or rather, lack of it. The second failure  she owed, it seams, to hor "imprudence."  Ib wtis always h'variste who would bring  up this tender subject: bub Birdie would  ��� always stop him with the incontrovertible  statement that "wluit's done is done."  I could never learn a.nything more about  it. But when ti lather admits*that his  daughter has been -"imprudent;,-" it i.s not  difficult to make a guess at what he  moans.

How It Snatched  Its  Master  From the Jaws  of Matrimony.  ���"The apartment suits me well enough,"  I. said to the janitor;  quite dry, eh? There  more than the odor of  "It is perfectly dry,  finished it a year and  are two other parties  you say so, sir, I'll tak  "you tell me it is  is nothing I dislike  imdricd plaster."  sir. The workmen  more ago. There  looking at it, but if  e tho sign down."  ie  in it ni-  '��� Well, yes; bake it down,*'and I handed  tho man a. few louis, which ho pocketed  with superb disdain.  I was soon comfortably settled there.  By the end of April the decorator, upholsterer, and the rest had got through  with it. But, in the .meantime, I discovered that the house was a regular  sounding-board, its acoustic properties  were so remarkable. Just below me lived  a .couple whoso home was blessed with  the presence of two very young children.  The elder was cutting his tooth and cried  from night till morning. The other,  .which wtis hardly born, whimpered from  morning till night.  "Have patience, old man," I would say  to myself; ���'remember that the rate of infant 'mortality is very high iu Paris."  On the floor above lived a lady who  held classes: history in the morning,  geography in Lhe afternoon. I can toll  you all about the early kings of 'France  and the principal cities of Sumatra.  One morning, at the particular moment  when the elder of the two pledges of affection down stairs had ceased cryingand  the youiigor had not yet begun. I was  awakened by a terrible hubbub; but. this  time, the sound came from the same door,  almost at my ear. I inferred that some  new neighbors were moving in: and. in  fact, a week later, the family were installed.  Without voluntarily being indiscreet.  I soon made out Lhat the family was composed of three persons: the father, who  was deaf and was occupied during- tin;  day as cashier of tt groat banking house:  the mother, who was deplorably commonplace; aud a daughter, it regular chatterbox. Their inaid-of-all-work was called  Iriiitiiit first, but they changed so often  thnt the list must be as Jong a.s the calendar of saints by now. i never learned  the real names of these ladies. The parents always tuldressed their daughter as  Babybol. Kvariste was the husband's  name, and in the intimacy of homo life,  ho called hi.s wife "Birdie."  The intimacy of their home life had no  secrets for nie, for it wtis the .conjugal  sanctuary thatntljoined my own lied room.  In less than a mouth I knew intimately  the most minute details of their life. It  i.s what is generally termed a united  family, and Birdie, if I may believe certain details, had not yet renounced altogether the desire to attract her husband's  attention.  At half-past seven. Irniti  brought   my  neighbors  coffee.    Regularly it   was  woke her husband.    Then  their affairs, which  were  must confess.  Bnbybel, it seems, had the fingers of a  fairy, and could put a bonnet together  like   a   forewoman   tit-   Virot's.    But she  soon   assimilated    and    reproduced     tho  phrases   which   most often   foil upon   his  ear-   At the end  of the month  he would  repeat  the   following   dialogue   at   least  two hundred times a day:  "Birdie, let me in, please."  "Is that you, I_varisie?"'  These two interrogatories would pierce  tho   intervening   walls   every   afternoon  on l.variste's return  from his desk tit the  bank,    l.vidently Birdie'took  a  nap  tit  that hour, and  bolted   the  door   to   keep  Ba.bybel out of hor   room.    It  was   very  funny���tho   lirst   four  or  five   times���to  hear the  bird cry out in l.variste's nasal  baritone   "Birdie, lot  me  in. please.'* tind  the reply "Is that yon,   i.vtiriste?" in Lhe  woiiiiin.s falsetto.  "The man in there is a malicious nuisance," she complained to her father, "tind  you ought to complain of him to the  landlord."  "I did." responded I.variste; "but tho  abominable bird is in tho next house. Our  landlord litis nothing to do with it."'  "Well, why in the world," objected  Babybel, "are.tho walls so thin?"  I had asked tho same question myself  more than once. Two women yelling tit  the top of their voices to make a deaf  cashier hear them are .far worse than a  parrot.  At ltist June came. The young family  with the two children and tho lady who  held classes both wont to the country,  and the house became a veritable paradise, marred only by my neighbors of the  next house.  The latter, however, made up for the  defection, for, except throwing the furniture at each others' heads, those people  did everything that could be done in tin  apartment over which tho genius of Discord presides. Htibyol had made up her  mind to "go somewhere," a retisonnhlc  enough desire, but. it wtis utterly impossible on account of lack of funds, if l_var-  isto was to bo believed.  "I haven't got any money," ho would  say; ".not a sou. Business is not going  well at the bank, they threatened to'cut-  down my salary ton per cont, and wo  have our debts to pay."','  But, after a throe days'siege, the unhappy man had to make a concession.  He would let them go to Treport. At  mention of that name, Babybol laughed  in his face.  "Treport! Who ever went to Treport?  She was twenty-five; years old now, and if  hor parents did nob 'make any effort to  find ti husbtind for her,'she'would have to  do so herself."  Happily the time for my own departure  for the country had come; tind, leaving  Jacquoto to the care of my ancient servitor, I set out. rejoiced that for four or five  months, at .least,-! should not be compelled  to hear the bickerings of my neighbors.  I traveled about in Switzerland, spent  three week's in the -l.ngadit'ie, and presently reached Lucerne. In that city, or,  rather, on the beautiful lake from which  it takes its name, love lay waiting for me.  It wtis on one of the little steamers that I  saw her for the first time. Sho was traveling alone with her mother, a distinguished-looking old -lady with a binge of  melancholy in her manner thtit led-me to  think at first that she was a widow. Bub  three days later--! had been careful to  'put up at tho same hotel���I contrived to  make the ladies' acquaintance, and I soon  knew their name and history.  .Mine, de'ilonsentier was not tt widow  lier husband, detained in Paris by important business, had not been able to accompany hor in ti month's excursion undertaken for the benefitof her daughter's  health. As to the latter, I liked her vosy  much ---too much, in fact. She was a nice  looking girl: a brunette!, with great dark  eyes that wore ti once proud, innocent,  tind tender. Anil she had a most sensitive   nature!.     A   mere   nothing   brought.  tears to her eyes, and I saw her once burst  into tears at her mother's mere mention of  an umbrella forgotten on the summit of  the Higi Kuhii, which wo had climbed together. Jt was this umbrella that broke  the ice for us, if J may so express myself.  Thonoxtday I sob out at dawn for Kulni.  At five in the afternoon, thanks to my  haste and the railway, -Mile, do J\ionsen-  tior had her umbrella again.  "How kind you tiro," sho murmured, as  she gave nie her hand iu thanks.  1 pressed a kiss upon that little hand,  tmd I am afraid that, just tit first, both  mother aud daughter" thought; my action ti trifle bold. "But they felt thtit they  wore dealing with a nian of delicacy. Perhaps, oven, my budding love was suspected already. They say women know  those things by instinct.  Wo passed ;i fortnight tit laicerne. seldom being separated from morning till  night. 1 flattered myself that I knew  Isabel better than if I had paid court to  her I'or two months in Paris.  Sho wtis an only child, and it wtis easily  bo be soon that the iMonsontiors wore possessed of fortune tind lived in a certain  degree of stylo. The ladies unconsciously  let fall during their conversation the  mimes of their modistes, their milliners,  of tho people who frequented tlieir house,  and all this naturally tauglrt nie much.  They did not keep a carriage, as the  mother told mo with charming simplicity.  "In Paris," she said, "one has to bo satisfied with hired carriages, when one has  only sixty thousand francs a.,yo��ir."  To a future son-in-law such ti phrase is  more precious than rubies, and while I  did nob consider myself quite a future  son-in-law, I..was at'Ietista possible son-  in-law.  There must bo an end to all things, however.    When   I  took  leave of thoni, they  HOTEL  John Johnson, Proprietor  Extensive  Improvements  Now Completed.

The ladies received mo with open arms,  give you my word 1 thought Isabel oven  more beautiful than she had been tit  Lucerne, and 1 saw tit once thtit she did  not lind such change as there was in Disappearance to my disadvantage.  "I deeply regret, madam,"' I said as I  rose to go, "that I have nob had the pleasure of meeting M. de Monsontior."  "He is always at his bank tib this hour."  she replied; "but he will soon call upon  you to make youriicquiiintaneoand invite  you to dine with us. Meantime, I can  only show you a portrait of him done in  crayon by his daughter."  "Oh, mamma," pouted Isabel, "it's so  bad "  "Vou need have no fear, my dear; our  friend knows you do not pose as tin  artist." So saying, sho opened the door  and led nie into the adjoining room,  which wtis evidently the conjugal chamber. On the wall hung the portrait of .M.  do -"Woiisentior, but I cannot toll you  whether it was good or bad. for at that  moment I heard from the other side of  the w;dl a strident voice saying:  "Birdie, lot me in, please.

Boss  said he would not ship a pound of ore from lhe Young  dominion until ho had the advantage of railway iraiis-  portaUon. Silver and lead he considered were both al  or very near bed-rock. Il wa-. more likely Ihoy would  rise than tall.  People   who   deal   with   the   Bank   of  British Columbia have wondered for the lnsl week or  two whv it was thai lhe bankV accountant. John Stewart, carried about with him a smile lhat was a.s broad  and as genial when an li-Nliiinin .showed up iu (he bank  as when a rieolchman dropped in. On Tuesday, September Ifltli, at Vancouver, Mr. Stewart, was married to  Miss Klizabeth Durham Clarke, eldest daughter of the  late Kev. R. H. Clarke of Clones. Ireland. Hence the  smiles.  Nakusp has a 'newspaper, the first number appearing on the o'tli instant. It is named "The,  Ledge." If its contents are of Ihc fame character as the  coiitents of the ledges in the immediate neighborhood of  Nakusp, its owner, H. T. J-owcry, will know what an  Irish dividend is before many months elapse.  Tom Trenery has opened  the Victoria  hotel at Kaslo, and is already doing a fairly good business. The Victoria is a 3-story building on Front street  next to the I'alaco hotel.  The great commercial houses of Kootenay arc, one by one, beginning to recognize the worth  of Tin-: ThiiiL'.vk as an advertising medium. The last  to lake advantage of its low rates and enormous circulation is the Hudson's Bay Company.  The wagon  road   between   Kaslo   and  Three Korks is reported in^bad condition, notwithstanding men are constantly kept at work repairing it. The  "tote" road between Xakusp and Slocan lake is also in  bad shape.  The photo-topographical survey has a  few days work to put in on Toad mountain.  D. Bremner is in Nelson on Ji is way to  ICamloops to visit a brother who has been sent there for  the benclll. of his health.  Mr. .Iliiieline leaves on Friday for the  civilized world again.  Mr. St.  John, the agent of the Great  Northern, is in the Slocan country putting in his bid for  the ore traflie.  Four smelters are bidding for Slocan  ore. the (treat Kails, the San Francisco, the Tacoma, and  a Colorado smelter.  ��� Robert Muck ray-, the special commissioner of the. Toronto Kmpire to Uritish Columbia, is  taking in West Kootenay on his way east.  "Micky" Landrigan showed up in Nelson this week. Ho has been rustling in the Slocan all  summer.  An old Nelson man, in the shape of  Harry Shearan, came to town on Tuesday. He is a great  believer in Slocan lake as the Slocan center.  .Jacob Dover returned to Nelson on  Monday night from one of his periodical excursions.  The well-known faces of Charlie Olson  and "Rory" McKeod were visible in Nelson today.  John Hirsch is up and  down for mail  from tlie survey camp on Toad mountain.   The job is  ��� likely to last longer than was at lirst expected.  Tlie .Kaslo. Wagon Road Committee has  informed Tin; Tuihunk lhat the Kaslo Examiner made  a mistake in its version of Mr. Bailey's report. Eleven  thousand cubic yardsof rock were given instead of 1100.  A. J. Marks left Nelson on Monday on a  business trip to Spokane.  Sam Green and G. O. Buchanan attended  the meeting of the telephone company held ou Monday  evening.  On  Monday  the following brig-ht .par-'  tieular stars of tiie mining world were in Nelson: G.  Hughes of the -Mountain Chief, Mr. GrilHths of the Helena Smelling Company. Mr. Fisher of the Freddie Lee,  Byron -White of the Slocan Slor, major Montgomery of  the Washington, and Kd (Jove of the Idaho.  A sack of line Slocan ore Avhich is scattered oil tho railroad track about two miles from NTelson  i.s giving rise to a number of line strikes in the locality.  Mr. Fisher of the Freddie Lee Company  has been up and down between ICaslo aud Nelson this  week. He is making preparations to leave West Kootenay for the winter.  Messrs. Middaugh and Atkins were in  Nelson on Friday and returned to the Slocan Saturday.  Their appearance in Kaslo caused a temporary boom  there.  M. S. Davys is  not,-o'uthusia.stie about  the prospects for hydraulic mining on 1'erry creek. Jt is  understood that the company for whom he examined  the property will not take hold.  A.S. Far well is in town today on business.  A few days ago one of the best known  miners and prospectors who made Golden headnuartors  was Neil L. Morrison. Mr. Morrison has forsaken his  old haunts and pursuits, however, and is now a "sealer."  Jle wiie in Victoria the other day on his way to the home  of his father at Hellingham bay.  D. E. Brown, who has been in China for  a year working up business for the Canadian 1'acillc, arrived on tho coast last week on private business.  "Davie" does not look as well as when he had his headquarters at Vancouver, but still looksed well enough to  capture one of the fairest girls iu Tacoma for a wife.  A corner lot on  Bellevue avenue and  Sixth street. New Denver, was sold last week for ��1100  cash, a Vancouver man being the purchaser.    .  Sam  Green   was in Nelson on Tuesday  getting pointers on parliamentary law from George Hig-  elow. Sam is one of Kaslo's aldermen and George is an  authority, as he has presided at more public meetings  than any other man in Ivootenay.  "Bill" Alperson, who has milling interests at Ainsworth, is now land poor at Spokane.--  J. E. Boss, J. L. Montgomery, T. K. Jef-  ferson, O. D. Garrison, and W. 11. Woods were among  the mining men who came in from theoutside this week.  Neil Melnnes of Calgary left Nelson on  Tuesday for home. Jle snitl his linn will require .00 head  of beef cattle at Nelson for the winter trade. Some dif-  liculty may be had in getting them down from Revelstoke, as the Columbia river is falling rapidly.  Ed Atherton came down  from Watson  today. The wagon road is in bad shape, but ore is still  being shipped.  Collector of customs Jones Imd a disagreeable experience on the Columbia river on Tuesday  night. -Through the upsetting of a lamp in his room oil  the steamer Columbia his trousers were saturated with  blazing oil. Wilh great presence of mind he lept into  the river and saved his skin at the expense of a wetting.  Osner  Oakes left Nelson on a  visit  to  Kaslo today.  E. Applewhaite tind  E. P. Whtilly have  returned from tlieir hunting trip to Ihe Arrow lakes.  They had a good time among the grouse and lish, and  killed one deer.  AValtcr Neilson tind  Hugh Neilson, his  nephew, arrived in X'eNon on Monday night. They were  accompanied by W. I'ellew Harvey of Golden.  It is reported iu the Spokane papers  that Hull Brothers of Calgary will start a branch of their  wholesale meat, business in Spokane.  Cajitain Gore of the steamer (.'oliimliia  is in bed at Revelstoke suU'cring from a severe attack of  rheumatism.   Captain Troup is now doing double dutv  captain of tlie Columbia and manager of the company.  Married, tit the Stanley house. Nelson.  on Saturday evening, September _i')lh. Duncan McDonald  of Nelson lo Miss Ituth Moore of I'ilol liny. "Dune"  looks the happiest man in town, and hi.-, bride should  look equally happy, as she has for a husband one of the  best men in the lake country.  The spectacle of Roman Catholics. Protestants, Mohammedans. Jews and Buddhists holding ti congress in amity is. indeed, enough to make the world wonder  ���to wonder what had cured them of their  traditional desire to break one another's  bones, cut one another's throats, and burn  one another's flesh. Can it be that they  have grown in grace, sweetness, and light  from a deeper study of their tenets, or  that the causes which enable them to  keep from lighting are altogether outside  of themselves? Shall Ave admit the suspicion that the brethern drawn from the  four corners of the earth do not bite because they have been mtiK/.led by the secular spirit of tlieir time���that tlieir placable disposition is due to an indifference a.s  to points of faith that were held to be  vital by their more zealous forefathers?  If the Christian or the Mohammedan believes that acceptance of his dogmas is essential to', salvation, how can he sit down  in brotherhood with those who serve  Satan������ by affirming the' contrary? Can  the unconverted be blamed for questioning the earnestness of a pastor who, fresh  from shaking hands with the benighted  Buddhist and the dog of-a-Mohammcdah,  threatens with perdition' the sinner who  has doubts on the head of the exclusive  efficacy of Christianity to save?  There are 'other; reasons why it is to be  regretted that the parliament .was convoked. Oiir own faith (which is the only  true one) has not been represented in a  'manner to cause pride. The Rev. B. Fay  Mills may be mighty, as a. revivalist, but  lie certainly is not one,of the .intellectual  giants of the time. The Rev. Joseph  Cook of Boston is a ���brother of signal  poAver in the matter of voice, but he i.s not  a master of: logic, and when lie "failed to  ".stampede" the "convention of Christianity by waving the Bible above his betid  and yelling, his usefulness at the parliament was gone. Such "champions as these  could scarcely have impressed the delegates of other religions with' their profound .knowledge of .comparative theology. '"'Moreover, the pilgrims from far  lands will have some amusing 'reports to  carry back with, themas to what they  will describe as the ignorance tind i[liberality of the Christians:.who' had invited  them to Chicago to have tlieir say freely.  When, for example, the champion of  Islam stood forth to explain why polygamy is suited to the social, industrial, and  ���climatic conditions of -Mohammedans, the  Christian mob in Parliament .Mall rose at  him and bawled antl hissed 'him down.  "How many of you," asked a Buddhist  ���priest,-doubtless at the instigation of the  devil, ."-have-read the life of Mohammed ?"  Just four hands'went .up iu that great  concourse. " How many of you have read  the life of Buddha?" There were live  hands 'uplifted. Then this blasphemous  heathen had the effrontery to cry out:  "How dare you .judge us?" It is fortunate for this pagan that he lives "in I SOS.  Not so long ago he would have paid for  his rashness with his life.  Syinons, the best English authoiity ou  droughts, enumerates eight during the  present century. Of 'these, the longest  continued one hundred tind five days.  Thus, the drought of the present year is  the greatest in the British islaiidsaiitlieii-  ticated by meteorological records. Now,  to the origins of some diseases dryness is  the most effective of till enemies. The  jiresent year the exertions of the world's  health authorities have been seconded by  the most searching drought known' to  modern times.

Such of the Christian clergy as objected  to the holding of the Parliament of Meli-  gions at the World's Fair showed practical wisdom, even though they might be  deficient in the liberality of spirit which  i.s .supposed to be characteristic of the  nineteenth century. The Rev. Dr. Ifen-  son says that the coming together of the  creeds reminds Jiiin of the witches in  Macbeth, who each brought something to  the pot, and the result was a hell's broth.  "Paul," adds this shrewd theologian,  "could have got along very well at  Athens, if lie had consented to place  Christ in a niche in the Pantheon with  About thirty thousand other divinities,"  , Cholera and Drought.  The confident expectation of a recrudescence of 'cholera last spring, entertained  by the physicians of Europe last year,  has not been fulfilled. The drought of  1893 is one of the events that holds an assured place in history. In tlie ��� north of  Italy, for example,, ho living person recollects having seen the Italian-lakes so low.  In London the total amount of rain that  fell during the. one hundred and ten  days was, seven-tenths of an ineh.    Mv.  You Want to Save Money  You can do so by purchasing- your  supplies from us.
