 East anu Til est Kootenay  Have   Better Showings  for Mines than  any  other Sections on the Continent  of America.  4  f  (Capital ano Brains'  Can   Both   be   Employed   to   Advantage   in  the  Mining Camps of East and  West   Kootenay.  FIRST  YEAR.-NO.  NELSON,   BRITISH  COLUMBIA, THURSDAY,  SEPTEMBER '-28,   1.8  n<>  PRICE  TEN  CENTS.  HER FIRST TRAIN LOAD OF ORE.  TWELVE    CAR    LOADS   AMOUNTING    TO  ONE    HUNDRED    AND    FIFTY    TONS.  The Noble Five, Dardanelles, and Bluebird are  the Mines that Contributed the Ore, the  Value of Which is Estimated at' $25,000  ��� Shipped via the Canadian Pacific to San  Francisco.   Two years ago tho .Nelson depot was  tliu scone of a, striking' event. It was  when the lirst crowd of pioneers struck  ouL for the Slocan. Two Mat cars -were  loaded with canoes, boats, and supplies;  mid among the prospectors were men  whose mimes have since been identified  with some of tlie biggest mines iu the  Slocan. The whole population turned out  to wish them godspeed.  The scene at the depot on Tuesday afternoon was not, perhaps, so stirring or  so romantic, but it wa.s none the less significant for the future of the country. On  Tuesday, for the lirst time, all the available carrying space on tiie road was loaded  to its full capacity with ore.  hipnient comprised (50,0(10 pounds  The ;  of ore  pounds  pounds from  the Noble  Five, or lf>H I  iu all.    Tlie approximate valueof this  from  the   Bluebird   mine,  83.0(50  from (.he Dardanelles, and 21.'3,000  tons  ipproxitnate vaiueoi bins one  ore shipment is $25,000.   It will be followed  by a shipment of from '10 to (50 tons from  the  Washington, as well  as   the  before-  mentioned mines, aud later by continuous  shipments from tlie .Mountain Chief, and  before   tlie snow   flies  many other prospects will   be in  a  position  to add their  share.    Fifteen  hundred   tons has up till  now been actually booked in addition to  500 tons which  has been shipped during  tlie last three weeks.    Hut there is little  doubt chat 1."3.000 tons is a small estimate  of the amount which will be actually produced   during  the  coming  winter.     Tho  Canadian Pacific will have its resources in  West Kootenay taxed to the uttermost to  handle this freight.    Hut the attention of  the company has at last been aroused  to  tlie possibilities of Che ore traffic, and in  consequence wiil make a supreme effort lo  keep communication open during, at least,  a   par*,  of   the   winter.     The   road   from  Revelstoke will be built to the mouth of  the   Illecillewaet within  the next  thirty  days, and  it is maintained that this wiil  keep communication open  till  well on in  the season.  The rate of $11 a ton from Kaslo to San  Francisco allows of a fair profit to the  road. The Columbia & Kootenay Steam  Navigation Company gets $1.50 a ton for  the haul from Kaslo to Nelson, and $1.50  from Robson to Revelstoke. The freight  can be carried very cheaply from Revelstoke to the coast; and when the Canadian 'Pacific gets its projected system in  West Kootenay in working order it will  probably be able to handle the ore even  more cheaply than at present. ���;. ���  Contracts are being let now to haul  ore from the mines to Kaslo for $15 a ton  just so soon as sleighing begins. This  rate, together with the $11 rate to Saii  Francisco, will effect such a reduction in  cost of transportation that it will be'much  more profitable to mine silver in West  Kootenay this year than last, in spite of  the fall in the price of silver. Everything  points to the fact that the country is on  the eve of a tremendous advance, an ad-,  vaiice not caused by an. in rush of investors, and their attendant train of boomers  and speculators, but based upon the solid  foundation of a large output of wealth.  Old timers might well think when they  saw Tuesday's ore-laden jcars, and realized what 'effect the large returns from  so many and various mines' must have  on the outside world, that A Vest Kootenay, having fought a long 'uphill -fight  against the forces of ignorance and prejudice and the natural difficulties of her  position, had at last, just when everything looked darkest, conquered-the situation, and-stood confessed as the future  great silver producing country of the  North American continent.  that night, after having fished  all  day.  expecting the next day to come down to  Nelson to sell  my fish.    They stopped at  my place and stole tho fish.    I  woke up  when they were going away, i just looked  round to see what was the matter, when  1 noticed that my fish were gone.    I then  took   my  twelve-shooter, jumped in my  boat and started after them.    After a- run  of about a mile, pointing my gun at them,  I ordered them to halt.    I knew the three  of them.   They offered me the fish.    1 told  them to take them back where they had  procured them.  They told me they would  if I would not shoot.   They started back  aud     J     followed     them    close.     When  about one hundred   feet from my camp,  where they had stolen the fish   from, it  seemed   that the lake  was  too shallow,  their boat could notgoany further. Then  I pointed my twelve-shooter again.  They  all  three  very near cried and said they  would   take   them   back.     They got   oil'  their boat and walked in the water with  the fish, which they put back -where they  had taken them from."    Mere the touching little drama appears to have ended.  THE   FORFEITURE   CLAUSE  it   Impossible   to  THE   STATE   OF   IDAHO.  She  Sails    From   Bonner's    Ferry    With   the  Sheriff and Marshall on Board.  The steamship State of Idaho has been  in deep water financially for some time  past.    A  receiver -was appointed  and he  had   entered   into  possession,  when  the  circuit court decided that  the divisional  court  had  no jurisdiction and  made an  order for the sheriff to arrest (he receiver  and for the marshall'to attach the boat.  It is one of ( he beauties of the law on the  other side that constitutional points may  be raised at every  turn, and more than  half the time of one court is occupied in  deciding  what is,  or  is  not   within   the  jurisdiction of some other court.  Steam was up and the boat about to  start when the sheriff and marshall were  seen approaching the landing. The captain, divining their intentions, tried to  get the boat iu the mid stream before  they could effect a capture; but just as  she'was swinging clear they jumped on  board. But the doughty sheriff and mar-  shall found that to have boarded the  enemy was one thing, and to effect a capture quite another. They were now under  full steam for British waters, where it  was clear they had no jurisdiction, and  when the captain asked what they wanted  onboard his boatj suggested they should  pay their fares;' told them he was on the  high seas and threatened to throw them  overboard, they felt that whether he was  on the high seas or not he held the edge  over theni for the meantime.  Eventually the matter was compromised.  Tlie State of Idaho was snubbed up to  the bank and the sheriff with his prisoner  and the marshal without anything were  deposited on the shore; while the State  of Idaho, triumphantly rid of all three of  them, receiver, sheriff, and marshall, pursued her course to Kaslo. Front Kaslo  she came to Nelson and remained till Sunday afternoon. On Sunday, with-steam  up. whistle blowing and flags flying, the  gallant craft sailed up the outlet. - 'What  her destination was does not appear; but  the chances are she wentto face the  enemy once more and make due .surrender  with all the honors of war. ���  On Toad Mountain Prospects are Good.  On Sunday .Messrs. Harvey and Croase-  daile returned to the Silver King mine  after a day's visit to town. They will remain on the .mountain for a, fortnight.  Mr. Harvey is engaged in drawing up a  plan for the development and working of  the mine. On the same day A. S. Far-  wel! and A. F. Ilodgins set.out to locate a  tramway line from the mine down Give-  out creek to the water's edge at Nelson.  The work is preliminary in its nature, and  is undertaken to obtain information as to  the lay of the country. The likelihood is  tliat considerable work will be carried on  all through the winter. But a great deal  will depend on the decision of Mr. Neilson,  one of tlie directors of the company, who  is daily expected in Nelson. Mr. Neilson  is an extensive iron founder of Glasgow  and Ayr. and on him will rest the main responsibility of setting the ball in motion.  They Stole His Fish.  The following original contribution to  current literature describes an incident  which took place in; West Kootenay this  summer. Names, dates, and places are  .suppressed for obvious reasons. The object of the letter is to prove/'There are  not only Indians who are thieves; there  are also white men :"  "One evening this summer two white  men and a mulatto left Nelson at about (5  P. M. to go back to Kootenay lake, where  they all three are living. At about 11  o'clock that night they were up twelve  miles in the river.    I  was camped there  Franklin Farrell in Idaho.  The attention of big operators lias been  attracted to the extensive copper deposits  in the Wood River country, Idaho. Franklin Farrell, a big brass founder of Connecticut, and president' of the Pin-rot  company of Butte, visited the Lost river  mines a few weeks ago. He was accompanied by .superintendent Ben Tibbey of  the Parrot mine, and a Cornish expert.  From the favorable opinion expressed regarding the properties, local enthusiasm  was kindled, and a sale at big figures was  considered a foregone conclusion. Financial depression is the explanation offered  for a failure to make the deal; but when  it was learned a few days ago that  the Parrot smelter and the company's two  mines at Butte, that employ 500 men, were  closed, there was greater encouragement  that something might be done.  The Valkyrie Safe.  The sloop yacht Valkyrie arrived at  New York September 22nd. Her time  across from Southampton was thirty days.  She encountered north winds and south  winds, at times blowing a hard gale, with  very heavy head seas. She had her storm  jib biown away and trisails burst, and  was obliged to set storm trisails. She  took the northerly passage and, on the  the whole experienced a very stormy trip.  On the Kith the Valkyrie passed a large  vessel bottom up, coppered, but too far  off to make out her name or nationality.  Cripple Creek Gold Output.  Fx-Senator Dorsey, who has been spending some time at Cripple Creek, Colorado,  says he believes that within two years  tlie Cripple Creek district will produce  more than one-third of all the gold mined  in tli(! United States. It will produce  this year over $2,500,000, and work has  scarcely begun yet. Next year, without  railroads, it will produce at least $0,000,-  000. In IS05, with railroads, he considers  it a conservative estimate to say the output will reach $10,000,000.  The English Billiard Game.  The game between Ives aud the English  champion  Roberts is progressing at Chicago.   The   advantage   of   the   game   is  slightly in favor of Ives.  In the  Mining   Law  Make:  Insure Title.  Clause !) of the Mineral Act reads as follows: "No person or'joint stock company  shall be recognized as having any right or  interest in or to any mineral claim, or  any minerals therein, or in or to any  water right, mining ditch, drain, tunnel,  or flume unless he or it shall have a free  miner's certificate, unexpired. And on  the expiration of a free miner's certificate  the owner thereof shall absolutely forfeit  all his rights or interests in or to any mineral claim, and all orany minerals therein,  and iu or to any and every water right,  mining ditch, drain, tunnel, or flume  which may be held or claimed by such  owner of such free miner's certificate, unless such owner shall, on or before the day  following the expiration of such certificate, obtain a new free miner's certificate."  The effects of this clause appear Lo be  threefold.  I. It invalidates any bill of sale made  to any party who does not at the lime of  the transfer possess a free miner's certificate. This means that anyone on the  outside, wishing to purchase a mineral  claim, must first write and secure i\ free  miner's, certificate. It will not do to procure a certificate before recording; if the  purchaser has not been in possession of a  certificate when the transfer was signed,  sealed, and delivered, the transfer is null  and void, and the money consideration  paid might just as well have been thrown  away. How many mining men's titles to  property in this country would stand a  scrutiny as to this particular is a question  better left alone.  2. Jt invalidates a. bill of sale made by  anyone who has at any time, by accident  or negligence, allowed his certificate, to  lapse for more than two days. So that  anyone purchasing an interest in a mineral claim must not only hold a certificate  himself, but must also ascertain that the  vendor has, at all periods since lie acquired the property, been in possession of  an unexpired certificate. The vendor  may, himself, be a purchaser; if so tlie investigation must be carried right back to  the original owners. As a man may very  well well have purchased a certificate in  Victoria or Cariboo and be dealing iu  property iu A Vest Kootenay, the necessary investigation of title presents some  features of difficulty.  3. Jt causes any individual who,  through absence, illness, negligence, or  any other cause, lias allowed his certificate to lapse, to absolutely forfeit all his  interests,: which it may have cost liim  years of patient labor to acquire.  All 'this is clearly inequitable. No  reasonable objection can be taken to the  existence of a tax of five dollars, which is  imposed In this way. The mining laws in  tliis country are as favorable to foreigners  as could be desired by anyone. And it is  necessary to protect the government, to  make it to everyone's interest to'have a  free miner's certificate. But could this  not be done by making it essential to produce a certificate when-recording-cither  claims, transfers, or assessments, and .by  imposing a heavy penalty for engaging in  mining witliout it. The punishment  should be penal, not directed against title  to property, wreaking itself probably on  some perfectly innocent and bona fide  holder. The action enforcing this regulation should be directed against the persons who violate it. It should not operate  to destroy title and invalidate transfers.  It is against every principle of equity and  sound policy.*"     '  Alaskan Boundary Commission.  The 1S.)3 operations of the Canadian  boundary commission have covered disputed territory for about 300 miles of  coastline, and extended a considerable  distance into the interior ��� twenty or  thirty miles inland. The work was taken  up at Burrough's Bay and completed to  Lynn canal, rather more than half of the  entire undertaking. All the territory  traversed proved exceptionally rugged-  towering mountains, mighty glaciers,  great canyons and rapid turbulent rivers.  Alsolutely no agricultural land was discovered, nor is the timber land especially  attractive, though hemlock and fir of  average size are generally found on the  slopes. Whatever value the country possesses lies in its minerals and its three or  four rivers, tlie latter teeming with the  same varieties of salmon already so well  known in the markets of the world. The  Indians of the country are few. and it is  also practically deserted by wild aninmls  -at least comparatively few were encountered.  GROVER   CLEVELAND  By the Grace of God Dictator of the United  States of America, 1893.  The following article is condensed from  the San Francisco Fxaminer, the leading  Democratic paper of the west. It is well  worth reading by any lover of liberty,  whether British or American:  ''President Cleveland had not been' a-  week iu his regained presidential chair  ere lie began to puzzle the country. Now  he has succeeded in alarming and incensing it: or rather that best portion of it  which believes in a republican form of  government���the rule of law. He is no  longer the same man who earned tlie admiration and confidence of the people by  the sturdy democracy of his' first terni.  Such disclosures of his purposes and of  his conception of the scope of his official  powers as he has vouchsafed since lie reentered the AVhito House six months ago  cause him to stand for:  "(1) The perpetuation of a spoils-system,  as exemplified by the use of patronage to  bribe or coerce congressmen into obedience to the executive, and  "(2) Centralization of power in the hands  of tho president to an extent that no  other chief magistrate has dared to attempt.  "As a centrnli/.er and a .spoilsman  Mr.  Cleveland   is  an  astonishing  instance of  change.    His  bestowal  of patronage and  use of the threat to withhold it, as moans  of bringing congressmen   to the support  of  his   policies,   have   become   perfectly  open.    His assumption of supreme authority over the legislative branch of the government and  his ignoring of tho. judicial  arm testify to his contempt of the constitution and his carelessness of the obligations of Ids inaugural oath.    If the occupant of tlie British throne were  to arrogate to herself such  imperial   plentitude  of power the throne would be overturned  in a day.    There is scarcely any constitutional monarch in Furope who would dare  to trample upon the safeguards of popular  liberty  in  like  manner.    Mr. Cleveland's  extension of the presidential prerogative  to the point of deciding what laws should  be executed and what laws will  be rendered  inoperative  would   better  belit   a  royal Tudor or Stewart than the chief official servant  of a   republic.    His  refusal  to execute the Geary law, an  act of con-  congress,   the  constitutionality of which  has  been affirmed by the supreme court,  would  result  in   his impeachment   were  the object of his conduct not agreeable to  the   wishes  of   numerous   and   powerful  classes   of   the   population   who    would  rather have what they regard as a-'right  thing done in an unlawful way than not  to have it done at all.   Liberty is not safe  when people of this class control the government.    They, with the president's assistance, have placed, at stake a principle  which is of higher consequence  than the  question of Chinese immigration, important as that question is to the whole country.    By nullifying a law at his sovereign  pleasure,  president Cleveland   has dealt  the American system a blow that never  should have been delivered  by a  Democratic hand���no, not. though by its withholding every brainless pulpit in the land  had   beeir draped   in mourning.    Fancy  what significance this outrage  upon republican .government would  possess-had  the country recently emerged from war  and the offense been committed-by a successful soldier in the White House.   The  Democratic president has sot a precedent  that not impossibly may cost the people  a war of self-defense against usurpation  in.time to come.  "The first duty of the Democratic congress���a- duty which it should attend to  before it passes a. financial, tariff, orany  other bill���is to bring Grover Cleveland  to his senses. He was elected to be president of this United States, not its dictator."  office.     Tom   had   seen   a   piece   of  the  meteor that fell in the Salmon river some  time ago, and  his  mind was running on  meteors.    Me said it  looked   like a  very  light   colored   granite   carrying  mineral  that looked similar to iron pyrites.    ''Call  it.porphyrit ic granite carrying silverizcd  iron    suiphurcts."  said  Tom.     The rock  looked very old: there wa.s no indication  as to its sex. but it looked very old.    Perhaps   its  rackety career through circumambient space did   something to age  it.  The nieteorolite made a great noise in descending to earth.    It was heard distinctly at   Say ward,   which   is   thirty   miles  away.    At first it sounded like wind sighing among telephone wires and was heard  several minutes before the meteor struck  bottom: but  it  increased in volume and  intensity and culminated in aloud explosion just before  reaching  the  earth.    If  some men  had not been  watching its descent no fragments would have over been  saved, as it struck a  very bushy country.  As it was, one specimen of a  few pounds  weight was discovered and sent to Washington. D. C where it brought a dollar  an ounce with a good market for all that  could oe found.  ANDREW CARNEGIE'S GOOD ADVICE  TO  MEN    HE    HAS   SPENT   A    LIFETIME  IN    TRYING    TO    ROB.  No Man Has Done More to Destroy the Peace  and Happiness of the People to Whom He  is Giving His Good Advice Than This Same  Hypocritical Demagogue.  THE   KETTLE   RIVER   GOLD   STRIKE.  Ricli Enough But Not Known to be of Very  Great Extent.  Highly colored reports about a rich  strike of placer gold on Kettle river have  been agitating the Boundary Creek camp  for a. -week past. It appears that the  neighborhood has been worked by the  patient Celestial and that he lias struck  pay dirt of enormous richness, the gravel  running as high as 25 cents to the shovel.  There is a settlement at the mouth of  Rock creek, the nearest point to the reported  strike.    There was  a   placer rush  into that country about twenty-five years  ago, and since then more or less gold  has  been taken out continuously.    A mining  recorder   is   stationed   at   the   mouth  of  Rock creek.    Of recent years the whites  havodonccoiisiderablo hydrnulicing i.hci e  and quite recently the Chinese have gone  in   to work the placer ground long since  abandoned  by  the whites.     As  near as  can be figured out, the new strike is about  tenor fifteen miles from Rock creek.   The  opinion   seems to be general among men  familiar with  the country thai- some  remarkably rich gravel has been struck, but  the fear is expressed  that it is not extensive enough   to justify  a  big stampede.  Mr. McDonald, who has returned to Nelson   from   Marcus,  says   the new.*, of the  strike is authentic.    The first  intimation  of it was.received-in. Marcus through the  letter of a Chinaman to a brother Chinaman, urging  him  to  come up to the diggings.    This Chinaman  did  not go as, if  he had crossed tiie line, he could not have  gone back  to the States, and he was not  anxious to take such chances. On account  of this he did not retain the secret to himself.   M.r. Marcus Oppenheinier informed  Mr.   Macdonald   that  the Chinaman's information was perfectly reliable.  ���'Somedoubt is expressed as to the extent  of the strike and it is feared that a  big  rush of prospectors-will result in loss and  disappointment to many.  A Veritable Giant.  Roy Mackenzie, the tallest and probably  the strongest man in Hritish Columbia,  has been summoned to Chicago to take  part in the final heats for the tug-of-\viir  championship of the world, and will pull  with the never defeated Ontario ream, of  which Iks was formerly a member. One  of the team was taken ill a short time  ago, and Mackenzie was sent for to take  the sick man's place. Last spring .Mr.  .Mackenzie was six feet ten and one-half  inches high, and weighed 210 pounds.  Now he'measures six feet eleven inches  and weighs 257 pounds, with a chest measurement of forty-six and throe-fourths  inches, and though twenty-four years of  age, is still growing. His lieight has hern  increased by something over an inch in  less than two years. Mackenzie; is a native of Huron, Ontario, and his father was  also Canadian born. Besides being oi e  of the "best tug-of-war men in the world.  he is a first-class all-round athlete.  The Nelson Brass Band.  Under the leadership of Mr. Scanlan the  Nelson Brass Band gave its first concert in  the balcony of the Nelson hotel on Saturday night. The band was started  by some enthusiastic citizens about  a month ago. to take the placeof the band  which wa.s organized in the spring, but  was broken up through some of its members leaving Nelson. 'flic members made  a very fair appearance on Saturday night  considering tin; short time the band has  been in existence, and the few opportunities they have had for practice. The  following is a list of the members of the  band and their instruments: C. Scanlan.  leader, solo cornet: P. Turner. H Hal cornet: .1. F. Turner. B Hat cornet ; .1. Kilbv,  1st alto: G.

At a conference of the delegates of the  National Miners' Federation, held in London, a resolution was adopted declaring  that the striking coal miners would remain firm n^gainst the proposal of the  mine owners'to reduce wages twenty-five  per cent, but that they would offer lo resume work at the old wages, pending a  sett lenient wit h the masters on | lie basis  of a mod died reduction.  Tom Collins on Meteors,  Tom Collins has been down in the  Salmon river country on government  business. Things are slack this week and  it was a relief to see his well-known visage   as   he   lounged   into   Till-: Timiirxi'.  Theodore Davie on Railroad Outlook.  The -following is from Theodore Davie's  speech at Chilliwack: ."The/government  is expecting, before long, to be in receipt  of a proposal from a company with which  thu Canadian Pacific is in thorough accord, lor the purpose of running lines into  Cariboo from the main line of the Canadian Pacific, railway. Some two hundred  miles of the Gait narrow gauge road in  Alberta has to be taken out and replaced  by the standard gauge, aud the owners of  that road are anxious to find use for the  present rolling stock. When I was last in  the cast some of the parties who are interested in this road were anxious to know  whether they could engage in any enterprise for a narrow gauge road in Hritish  Columbia. I broached the matter to Mr.  Van Home, who expressed the opinion  that narrow gauge roads to t.'arriboo  would meet the present requirements of  trade. By an act of last session tho .government were authorized to aid the Na-  klisp A: Slocan railway, so as (o open up  the Kootenay mines. This was a matter  of considerable urgency, for the trade of  that region might have been diverted to  tiie American side, and the government  has given such aid as lo enable the road  to be built, the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company having also intimated their intention to build their road from Revelstoke toward Nakusp. The government  will probably at next session recommend  to the house a change in t lie manner and  extent of assisting this road, and have  guarded the assistance which they have  given accordingly."  Cleveland Applies the Whip.  At the recent ceremonial of laying the  corner stone of the ca pi (ol at .Washington,  (it-over Cleveland turned full and fair on  the assembled house and senate, and told  theni iu a strong and penetrating voice  with vigorous gestures that-"If the lawmakers ever forget the duty of broad and  disinterested patriotism, and legislate in  prejudice and passion, or in behalf of sectional and sellish interests, the time when  the corner stone of our cnpitol was laid  and I he circumstances surrounding it "ill  not be worth comincinoi nting." The  added lour of defiance and warning with  which ('loveland said this gave a peculiar  significance lo his words, (imver Cleveland is not the sort id' a man to whom it  would occur that he might be acting in  prejudice a nil passion, and that the house  and senate probably represented the  American people better than himself.  In the North American Review for September Andrew Carnegie writes an article  on the silver question which he characteristically calls "A word to wage earners."  Wage earners have had words wilh Mr.  Carnegie before, ami they have been of so  severe and unfriendlyPa description, that  wage earners may be 'relied on to look 6n  advice coining from such a quarter with  suspicion.  Mr.���Carnegie has told the wage earners  of America, all about how they ought to  govern themselves, and in practice he has  shown them in unmistakable terms how  they are governed. Be has told the democracy of Great Britain all about the  blessings of a republic,,but beyond giving  Edinburgh and Dunfermline free libraries and maintaining in Furope the estate  and retinue of a prince, he has done  nothing to advance his opinions. And it  is only natural that he should now come  forward to abuse the use of silver as  money, and pose as the apostle to the  wage earners at the same time. A nice  apostle he makes. Well might the gold-  bugs cry out "Save us from our friends."  If silver were condemned by every authority from Kamskatkka to Cape Horn  and Andrew Carnegie came forward to  abuse it, it would be the most convincing  argument in its favor that wage earners  could be favored with.  Mr. Carnegie admits that the crisis  bears hardest upon the poor--"Upon the  millions of poor people alone will come  deprivation, restricted comforts, poorer  food and clothing: and upon many absolute want." Mr. Carnegie goes on to investigate the causes of the financial  crisis. "111 the 'A B C of money,'" he  says. "I made a statement to which I  now venture to call your attention. I  said "In the next presidential campaign,  if I have to vote for a man in favor of  silver and protection, or for a man iu  favor of the gold standard and a reduced  tariff, I shall work and vote for the latter,  because my judgment telis me that even  the present tariff is not half so important;  for the good of. the country as the maintenance of the highest standard for'the  money of the people.'  "The cloud then seen in the sky was not-  bigger than a man's hand, and some of  my party associates did not approve of  my regarding the tariff issue as relatively  'unimportant compared with the money-  question.".  "But I am disposed to think that recent  events may have caused them to modify  their opinion. I mention this not to show  you that I was a prophet, for it requires  no prophet to predict what was known to  be certain to come, and financial men  generally saw the cloud as clearly as I.  It is referred to in the hope that you may  be induced to -hear me more patiently  now, since I was right then.'  Mr..Carnegie is the Chadbaudand Pecksniff of politics rolled, into one. He finds  the cause of .the .financial crisis entirely  in the silver.. legislation' of the United  States and the one remedy that commends  itself to him. and ought to commend itself  to the American people, if they only saw  things in the right way, is the renunciation of silver altogether and the closest  adherence to a gold standard.  He admits that t'he crisis was precipitated and intensified by the action of the  Indian government in deinonetizingsilver.  and he gives a good description of the  causes which led to this:  "The reason was this; Silver had fallen  till the money of India, which is all silver,  had depreciated more than one-third. India owes Britain enormous sums, and has  to pay so much every year lo her. that the  Indian government and railways and  other corporationscould not meet the loss  they had to incur in remitting'gold. Besides this, the British army in India,  about sixty thousand strong, and all the  civil servants, were demanding to be paid  in gold, as their families had to be maintained in Britain-: the fall of silver had  robbed (hem of more than one-third of  their wages and salaries. T  turers of cotton and jute in  taking the trade of Britain  paid wages iu India iu silver."  Mr. Carnegie does not explain how  what was done iu the interest of the capitalist and creditor class in India i> lo  benefit the wage-earning and debtor class  when done in North America. Bui he  becomes sublime when he deals with lhe  various theories on silver. "Vou know."  hesavs. "that the world is blessed with  many original authorities on the subject  of finance. I should like to submit to the  leaders of the various schools of finance  that all should unite " in agreeing with  Mr. ('arnegie.  he manulae-  Indin   were  because (hey  eollossal   impudence!    lie   has a  advice for biinet tallists. another  silver men aud goes on to say:  la ve another si her party of stock-  " ver mines, who ha ve no views  What  word of  for i'rec  "We I  holders in si  except how to make t he most out of their  property, which isquite right."  11 ere the real Mr. Carnegie peeps out.  'Phis is the principle ho has acted on consistently in his own affairs. And. having  amassed a lingo fortune by attending  strictly to his own opportunities in defiance of the public welfare and the rights  of others, it is easy for him to ascend a  high moral platform and lecture wage  earners, economists and politicians alike  where they have gone wrong anil how  they ought to act in the future.  bi_i__-__M___��y__uiM  m__i_tai_��i��__J���__���hj -V  THE  TRIBUNE:   NELSON, B.C., THURSDAY,  RI.PT1_MI.1_R  28,   1893.

Wcxbxxxiz  TFIUUSDAY jMOHNING.   .SKl'TKIUHKR 'AS, 18.13  ARE   NO   LONGER   AMERICANS.  There are some things about, the republicanism of our American neighbors which  are like (he peace of Cod. past all understanding. A penniless l.uropean aristocrat happens to marry an American  heiress, and. like any impecunious, young  man about to unite himself to a comfortable income for life, lie is somewhat embarrassed, and actually goes into-church  with his trousers turned up at the ankles.  .Society is convulsed. The-'tremendous  fact is telegraphed all over the continent)",  and the aid of the press is called in to discuss the momentous question���was it accident or design?  The infanta of Spain pays a visit to the  "World's Fair. She is received not as the  dignity of' the Republic would suggest,  but with a feeble imitation of Kuropean  pageant and ceremonial. To Spain, indeed, belongs the barren-., honor of  having discovered .America.. -But- to  Spain also belongs the unenviable distinction of having exerted her'"power'for  evil, wherever she had power to exert in  the Western World. No "wind from the  land they had ruined awoke "front sleep"'  to whisper to our cousins across the line  that they wore welcoming among', them,  the representative of a people of most unenviable record in the long struggle for  civil and religious liberty. They onljr remembered that the infanta had eighteen  or twenty christian names, and a pedigree  as long as the procession of .'animals, into  IS'oah's ark.  The latest example of this curious phase  of Kepublicanism is the reception'tendered  to the crown prince of Austria. What is  it to .Republicans that he is the prospective head of a house which oppressed  Jtaly, participated iu Belaud, and denys  the liberty of the press? Does not Jiis  family date from the Holy Boman Empire? And forthwith he is serenaded by  brass bands, pestered by reporters, and  liis appearance, sayings and'doings'are  minutely chronicled for the edification of  the citizens of a free country. Have the  Americans no character of their own, that  instead of showing the dignified simplicity  associated with Republics, they must ape  the worst features of European snob-  ocracy.   THE   GOVERNMENT   PROGRAM.  ores and .Slocan ores.* It was the natural  outlet and could discount the Nelson  route 100 per cent. This year the Bonner's Kerry route is practically-deserted :  the only steamboat on the river is in  trouble with tins marshall and cannot  possibly bo paying expenses. Meantime  Nelson is as cheerfully to the front as  usual. Whatever ore is being shipped is  being shipped this way. The Bonner's  Kerry route has been the salvation of this  country by making the Canadian Kacilic  come to lime. But the Canadian Kacific  having toed the mark it censes to he of  practical importance.  The unfortunate infatuation of the  citizens of Kaslo for this route has  worked havoc with their best interests.  So far as it could be put down to their  not understanding the situation, and not  fqrseeing the .collapse about to take place  on the other side of the line, it was excusable; but some of their'enthusiasm was  due to their unworth jealousy of their  sister town.  .When. Messrs. (I. O. Buchanan and H.  Green came back, from Victoria..' this  spring they 'gave as their reasons for.op-  posing Mr. Corbin's charter into the Slocan,-that it was better 'that" a. -railroad  should be built from the .-mines to Kaslo  by an independent .'company,, giving to  '.shippers the advantage of competing  routes from there; and that, if Mr. Corfu n built the Jvaslo-Slocan road, he ..would  establish a ..monopoly in favor of the  Spokane & Northern railroad.. Very excellent reasoning, but-depending'- on the  ability of the .''independent-company to  build the road. This has been tried and  found wanting, and it was here the reasoning broke down. ���'And Kaslo as a con-,  sequence has got no road, .while competing agencies are''pushing .forward their  entrenchments from the other side of the  mountains, and the valuable time, which  is money and progress, is being lost.  THE   EXODUS   PROM   THE   STATES.  Sir John Thompson has laid the program of the government before the people  of Canada in a speech at Montreal. The  premier's utterances on the tariff are  cautious and guarded. lie promises a revision of the tariff after careful inquiry  into the question. He even goes so far as'  to sa.y that circumstances probably will  Avarranta reduction of the tariff: but he  joins issue with the Opposition on the  .question Of tariff for revenue only. "The  " feature of protection." he says, "shall  " remain in the-tariff so-long as we can  " keep it there."  Keviewing the BehringSea arbitration,  lie remarks that the judicial question was  settled entirely in Canada's favor; and  that while the regulations imposed forthe  protection ' of the seals appeared to him  14 more severe aud less adapted to these  '' purposes than might have been de-  " vised," still as those regulations applied  equally to Americans they are likely  " when we come to work under theni to  li be found by both countries capable of  " improvement." Me is of opinion that  that Canada should put forth an effort to  improve theni.  In connection with the recent crisis in  the States, he claims that we owe it to  the national policy that "our country is  " better built up as regards its co-nuuer-  " cial and industrial enterprises, is more  " independent, more self-reliant, more  " able to go along in times of commercial  "distress in the United States than it  " ever was before, and is better able to  " face . the storm, if the storm should  " come." The rest of the speech is taken  up with a long explanation of the government attitude to the Manitoba separate  school question.  LAST   YEAR   AiND   THIS.  Time brings many changes and often  those which are least expected. Last  year the route via Bonner's Kerry was to  be the only way of shipment for Slocan  it is an ill wind that blows nobody good.  Canada, is not likely to .suffer for some  years to come at any rate, from the exodus of her sons which has hitherto been  a feature of her national history.  The immigration statistics at New Y'ork  prove that the tide is actually setting  back from the States to Europe as a result of the collapse. This is, of course,  only a'temporary nioATement, but Will certainly have the effect of restricting immigration into the States for a" long time to  come. Their golden days of high ..prices  and high wages are gone for ever. A  much niore severe economic regime litis  set in.  And the reaction is bound to operate iu  favor of Canada, not only by enabling  her to retain her population at home, but  also by attracting the best class of immigrants both from the Qui ted States and  from Europe.  The following is from ' ;:i- report'of the  county court held before judge Spinks at  Fair view the other clay.    It forms interesting and instructive reading for those  who remember some of judge Walkem's  remarks from the bench last year.    If the  (.-defendant  in  this case had been one of  judge Walkem's  audience on  that occasion, and had neglected to look after the  .siy.e of his corner posts on account of what  he-had heard in court, the case would be  an admirable exanipleof the result of such  remarks:    "Nicholson vs. Dairymple was  " a case in which the ownership of a min-  " era! claim was involved.  Defendant was  " in possession of theclaim, but as the cor-  " ner stakes, marking the claim, were not  " of the regulation size, four inches square,  " the plaintiff who had jumped theclaim  " in his wife's mime was given  the  prop-  " erty on this technicality.    The case, it  " is expected,   will   be   appealed,  and   a  " court of equity  may reverse the ilecis-  " ion."   A Bad Record.  In IS07 the house of lords rejected a bill  for the ..advancement of education. In  INK) they refused to consent to the abolition of the death penalty for stealing-  goods to the value of $1.'_.">. At that time  hanging was the penalty for over _(X) offenses, from petty larceny to murder. In  l<S_;"> the lords desperately resisted the repeal of the penal laws against Catholics.  In ISM they rejected the Reform bill, and  did not finally retreat until the country  was in the throes of incipient revolution  and the king had been forced to threaten  thecreation of enough new peers to swamp  the Opposition. In IS.',I they refused to  permit the establishment of national education in Ireland. Iu the twenty-live  years between I.X.*W and IS57 they seven  times threw out the bill passed by the  commons granting the ordinary rights of  citizenship to the .Jews. In I.S.'il they refused to allow more than twenty persons  to meet for worship in a private house, to  legalize marriages in Dissenting chapels,  to open the universities to Dissenters, ami  to permit their ministers to officiate in  workhouses. In \Ki'.) they insisted on re-  taining the penalty of death for sheep  stealing. In the same year, to show that  their hostility Lo national education in  Ireland was not entirely due lo hatred of  the Irish, they refused to permit its introduction into England. In 1HI_ they refused to protect women and children  working in the mines against abuse, and  "or thirty years longer continued to stave  off measures to guard miners from preventable accidents.    In .iyi-1 they imposed  the repeal of the laws that made it criminal for a Catholic in Ireland to' teach a.  child to read, to slay away from . Protestant service, or to own.a- horse worth more  than $'_3. In IS(it) they rejected the bill  relieving the press from the taxes on  paper which had kept newspapers out/of  the hands.of the poor. In 1871 they re-  fused to nholi-h the purchase of commissions in the army. In the same year they  threw out the bill 'introducing'voting by  .iccrot, ballot, tins plan of viva, voce voting previously used having allowed \'ree  scope for aristocratic intimidation and  bribery. _   fiulllie Beaten.  The following yarn double discounts S.  S. Baillie's report on the Kaslo wagon  road. 11, is print.ed as news by a Spokane  paper with four big head lines:  "The big rough district lying bid ween  Lower .Arrow and Slocan lakes may. be  explored next summer. While hundreds  of prospectors' tramped over the hilts on  the opposite side of Lake Slocan last  ���spring few have ever ventured into this  district. A gentleman who arrived from  Robson last night brings news of a plan  to begin the exploration this fall, though  only a. small part of the district is to be  covered by the party now being organized. The Hall brothers, the former owners of. the Silver King, are said to be at  the head of the parly. The object of the  trip is the location of a huge ledge of peacock copper of which an old Indian guide  had told them. He said it was located  a little south of a. line through the ihi<Idle  of Lake Slocan, near the midst of a, wild  and almost impassable range of hills, lie  described the mine as like the Silver King,  only greater, and declared frequently  that the ledge was fully twenty paces in  width. JLe showed samples of very rich  peacock-.'copper from this lodge, one of  which' on assay showed ilOOO ounces of  silver "per ton. 'The Indian had agreed  to take the Halls to this ledge last summer,-'.'said the gentleman who told the  story, 'but hedied before they were ready  to go. Now they have found his squaw  and learned enough about the location  from her. so they are going tiny way.  They are confident that there is a, good  ledge in this neighborhood, as they do  not think tiie Indian would have told the  story without some foundation for it.  They say that even if he has lied about  three-quarters of the width of the ledge  it is still worth taking and they want to  see what is 'in.that district anyway."  Bunker Hill, and Sullivan Resumes.  One more big Occur d'Alene mini! has resinned work. This time it is the Bunker  Hill and Sullivan at "Wardner. It was  thrown open Monday morning, sixty-live  men'being employed. The mill and trams  are also running. No question is asked as  to'the unionism or non-unionism of the  mines. If a man asks for work and is a  competent miner he is given employment.  The wages are $.'!.()() per day for all underground labor. It is understood that all  the men wanting work will be employed  until.250.or ���'���>()() men are on the payrolls.  The mine is charge of a new superintendent named (ieorge Bent. He is said to be  a-, thoroughly experienced miner, well  known in the southern mining districts,  but a stranger iu this part of the country.  The three mines that were prev.iou.siy  opened are .being quietly worked just as  if the United States senate wasn't wrestling with the question of demonetizing  silver at all. There have been no paydays since work wa.s resumed, but the  people of the Cceur d'Alenes already feel  the benefits of returning confidence in  this country. "  Report of the Singapore Curz'ency Commission.  ��� Dispatches from Singapore are that the  currency commission ended its sittingson  the 2lst. -Kour separate reports were presented. Six members of the commission  advise that a token coinage be adopted.  Six others demand that 'free silver be  continued. The first report of the token  men ad vises, the adoption of the Indian  rupee if the Indian experiment proves  .successful and the. token dollar be impossible. The I'ree silver men are much  ��� firmer. They advocate the continued use  of Mexican dollars and for safety the addition of a proposed British dollar which  shall follow the' price of silver. The report of the banking members is similar,  but asks a pledge; that the proposed  British dollar shall never be converted  into a token coin. The report of the  Chinese members is to the same effect, but  contends that cheap silver would be advantageous to producers, while a token  coinage would alienate trade. The token  coinage men say the falling of silver  means new taxation. The Chinese reply  thnt it is better to have new luxation  than a token coin. The opinion of European members is divided.

By those of my friends who happen to  know that I sometimes amuse myself with  hypnotism, mind reading and kindred  phenomena. I am frequently asked if I  have a clear conception of the nature of  whatever principle, underlies them. To  this question I always reply that I neither  have nor desire to have. I am no investigator with an ear at the key-hole of Nature's workshop, trying with vulgar euri-  ��� osity to steal the secrets of her trade.  The interests of science are as little t<�� me i  as mine seem to have been to science.  Doubtless the phenomena iu question  are simple enough, and in no way transcend our. powers of comprehension if only  we could find the clew; but for my part  I prefer not to find it, for I am of a singularly romantic-disposition, deriving more  gratification from mystery than from  knowledge. It was commonly remarked  of me when I was a child that my big  blue eyes appeared to have been made  rather to look into than out of���such was  their dreamful beauty'and, in my frequent periods of abstraction, their indifference to what was going on. In those  peculiarities they resembled, i venture to  think, the soul which lies.behind theni,  always more intent upon some lovely conception which it has created in its own  image than concerned about the laws of  nature and the frame of things.  My first knowledge that.I possessed unusual.powers came to mo in my fourteenth  year, wheirat school.' Ilappeningohe'day'  "to have forgotten to bring my noon-day  luncheon, I gazed longingly at that of a  small girl who was preparing to'eat hers.  Looking up. her eyes met mine and she  seemed unable to withdraw them. After  a. moment of hesitancy she came forward  in an absent kind of way and without, a  word surrendered her lit. le basket with  its tempting contents and walked away.'  Inexpressibly pleased, 1 relieved my  hunger and* returned, .her the basket.  After that']'had not the trouble to bring  a luncheon for myself; that little girl was  my daily purveyor; and not infrequently  in satisfying niy simple need from her  frugal store I combined pleasure and  profit by constraining her attendance at  the feast and making misleading proffer  of the viands, which eventually I consumed to the last fragment. The girl was  always persuaded that she had eaten all  herself; and later in the day her tearful  complaints of hunger surprised the  teacher, entertained the pupils, earned  for her the sobriquet of (ireedy-Cut and  filled me with a peace past understanding.  A disagreeable feature of this otherwise  satisfactory condition of things was the  necessary secrecy; the transfer of tlie  luncheon, for example, had to be made at  some distance from tlie madding crowd,  in a. wood; and I blush to think of the  many other unworthy subterfuges entailed by the situation. As I was (and  am) naturally of a frank and open disposition, these became more and more irksome, and but for (he reluctance of my  dear parents to renounce the obvious advantages of my new regime I would gladly  have reverted to the old. The plan that I  finally adopted to free myself from the  consequences of my own powers excited a  wide and keen interest at the time, and  that part of it which consisted in the  death of the girl was severely condemned,  but it is hardly pertinent to the scope of  this narrative.  For some years afterward I luid little  opportunity to practice hypnotism: such  small essays as I made at it were commonly barren of other recognition than  solitary confinement on bread and wafer  diet; sometimes, indeed, they elicited  nothing better than the c;i,t-o'-niiie-lails.  It Wiis when I was about to leave (.lie  scene of these small disappointments that  my second really important lent was performed.  .1 had been called into the wtirden's ofliee  and given a suit of civilian's clothing, a  trifling sum of money and a great (leal of  advice,  which I am bound to confess was  of a much  better quality than   the clothing.    As I was passing out of the gate into  the light of  freedom I  suddenly  turned  and looking the warden gravely in the eye,  soon had him under control.  "Vou tire an ostrich," I said.  At the   post-mortem examination   the  stomach was found to contain the following articles:   One pound of shingle nails:  one hammer-head for driving theni; three  fragments of beer bottles; one piece of  iron chain; one short section of - gas pipe;  one part of a- felt hat; one pa per of carpet  tacks; one boot heel: one gold watch (not  belonging  to   the deceased); one  pocket  handkerchief; two brass keys; one feather  boa; one spinning top. and two daily papers.    .Stuck  fast in tho oesophagus and  constituting,  according to  the  coroner's  .jury, the immediate cause of death, one  hen.  I was by nature a good anil affectionate  son, but as I took: my way into the great  world from which I. had been so long secluded I could not help remembering that  ail my misfortunes'had Mowed like a  stream from the niggardly economy of  my parents in the matter of school luncheons; find I knew of no reason to think  they had reformed, although they had  made 'a, ��� gre.it deal of money from niy  young sister's ingenious invention for  smothering babies. #  On the road between Succotash hill and  South Asphyxia is a little open field which  once contained a shanty known as Pete  Gilstrap's place, where that gentleman  used to murder travelers for a living. The  death of Mr. Gilstrapand the diversion of  nearly all the travel to another road' occurred so nearly at the same time that "no  one has ever been able to say which was  cause and which 'effect.' Anyliow, the  field was now a desolation and the place  had long been burned. It was then that,  while going afoot to South Asphyxia, the  home'of niy childhood, I met both my  parents on their way to the hill. They  had hitched their team find were eating  luncheon under an oak tree in the center  of the field. The sight of the luncheon  called up painful memories of my school  days aud roused the sleeping lion in niy  breast. Approaching the guilty couple,  who at once recognized me, I ventured to  suggest that 1 share their hospitality.  "Of this cheer, my son." said the author  of my being, with characteristic pompos-  its, which age had not withered, "there is  sufficient for but two. I am not, I hope,  insensible to the hunger-light in your  eyes, but- "  "My lather has never completed that sentence; what he mistook for hunger-light  was simply the earnest, gaze of the hypnotist. In a few seconds he was at niy  service. A few more sufficed for the lady,  and tlie dictates of a just resentment  could be carried into effect. "My father,"  I said, ".I presume that it is known to you  that you and this lady are no longer what  you were?"  "1 have observed a certain subtle  change," was the rather dubious reply of  the old gentleman; "it is perhaps attributable to ago."  "It is more than that," I explained; "it  goes to character���to species. Vou and  the lady here are, in truth, two broncos--  stallions both, and unfriendly."  "Why,   .John."    exclaimed    niy   dear  mother, "you don't mean to say that I--"  "Madam," I replied, solemnly, fixing niy  eyes again upon hers, "you are."  'Scarcely had the words fallen from niy  lips before she dropped upon her hands  find knees, and backing up to the old man  squealed like a demon and delivered ��*i  vicious kick upon his shin. An instant  Inter he was himself down on fill-fours,  headed away from her and flinging his  feet tit her simultaneously find turn  about. With equal earnestness but inferior agility, because of her hampering  body-gear, she plied her own. Their flying legs crossed and mingled in the most  bewildering way; their feet sometimes  meeting squarely in mid-air, their bodies  were thrust forward, falling Mat upon the  ground ami for a moment helpless. On  recovering themselves they resumed the  combat, uttering their frenzy in the name  less sounds of the furious brutes which  they believed themselves to be���the whole  region rang with clamor! Hound and  round they wheeled, the blows of (heir  feet falling "like lightnings from the  mountain cloud." They plunged and  reared backward upon their knees, struck  savagely at each'others with awkward descending blows of both lists at once, find  dropped again upon their hands as if unable to maintain the upright position of  the body. Grass find pebbles were torn  from the soil by hands and feet: clothing,  hair, faces inexpressibly-defiled with dust  and blood. Wild, inarticulate screams of.  rage attested the delivery of the blows,  groans, grunts, and gasps their receipt.  Nothing more truly military was ever  seen at Gettysburg or Waterloo; the heroism of my deal" parents in the luTur of  trial and danger can never cease to be to  me fi source of pride and gratification.  At the end of itall two battered, tattered,  bloody and fragmentary vestiges of mortality, attested the solemn fact that the  author of the strife was an orphan.  Arrested for provoking <t breach of the  peace, I was, and have ever since been,  tried in the Court of Technicalities and  Continuances, whence, after fifteen years  of proceedings, my attorney is moving  heaven and earth to get the ease taken to  the Court of Kcmandmeut for New Trials.  Such are a few of my principal experiments in the mysterious force or agency  known as hypnotic suggestion. "Whether  or not it could be employed by a bfid man  for an unworthy purpose I am unable to  say.    HER   SYMPATHETIC   EDITOR.  How the Editor of a Magazine Got the Best  of His Associate.  The editor sat in his sanctum (the mime  for all places where thai particular species  of animal sits, and which is so called because it is sacred to every soul who can  scribble ft line except the editor himself).  The implements of his craft lay all about  him���scissors, paste pot. litter, waste  basket and all.  An associate sab fit a side desk glancing  over MSS., and placing bhem in piles for  future examination, further consideration  or return. The second pile being the  ���smallest and the last much the largest.  Odes to spring, summer, autumn, and  winter, to the snow, the frost, to rain,  hail, and sunshine, had been tossed on the  return pile with perfect impartiality;  papers on George Washington, on the  Treei'rog, on the Punic Wars, the Tariff,  Napoleon Bonaparte and Noah's Ark, had  experienced the same commendable exemption from 'prejudice.. Finally the associate editor said : "Well, here is a letter that is pathetic." He read a few sentences, and passed the letter across to his  chief.    "Did you read it?"  "No. It's ten "pages, and I have only  one lifetime," exciainied the other.'  "I knew it," said the associate, with-a  virtuous air, interrupting the further protest. "But it's a- woman, and she says  that she is pining for intellectual companionship, find that the'acceptance of her.  poem will be like manna- to the hungry  soul. She is some poor young thing who  is starving in the isolation of some far-off  country town���-"  "For the intellectual companionship of  a young magazine editor," cut in the  editor, in his turn, casting his eyes down  the closely written and crossed pages to  find the name. "I'll wager that she is ti  tall and vinegary dame who lets her husband eat sour bread find her children  wear undarned stockings, whilst she  writes poems on 'The Internal Adolescence  of the Infinite.' By-bho-way, where is the  poem?"  "I'll bet she is not: she is a young, fresh,  enthusiastic girl with large blue eyes and  a rose-leaf skin, anil she teaches' school  find supports a widowed mother and two  little sisters, and sends her vounger  brother to college, and he bullies iier. find  she writes poems on ' Lilacs and the Sunset,'" said his companion, raking over the  pile of ''further consideration" papers.  "What's the name?" he asked.  ".I. I_ Speritt, as well as I can make it  out," said the senior.  "Hut where is the poem?" said his associate.  "Isn't this it?" asked the editor, looking  into the waste-basket and picking up a  good sized MS. rolled together as tightly  as paper can be rolled. The young man  took it.  "Yes, this does look like the same hand,  lb must have fallen into the basket."  "It is written on both sides, and does  not appear to have any postage enclosure  for its return. Perhaps that was the  reason it was thrown there."  "Perhaps," said the associate. " Vou  were evidently wedded to the sour-bread  theory. Vou might tit least have taken  the trouble to read it, for the poor young  thing will expect tin answer anyhow. I  wouldn't bo as hard-hearted ami unsympathetic as you for anything: aud besides  I have no doubt the poem is at least up to  the average."  "I do not deny that. Lot's see. Head  a little of it if you can. I'd sooner try  Greek.    What is it cm Hod?"  The champion began : " 'Ode to ' What  is this?"  "Sour Mread," suggested his friend.  '���'Notatitll.    'To-to���"'  "The Lilac at Sunset."  ;' No.    : To���M y, A fli i i i ty.'"  "Infinity���the Adolescence of infinity.  I told you'that was it."  "No: it's affinity."  "Well, that supports the sour-bread  theory, anyhow.    Go ahead."  The associate persevered:  "'Oh. I lion who d welie.sl. from me far.  Through all Ihe lonely, laugoroiis hours  Thou art lo men shining .-tar  .Mid auiaraiilhiue bowers.'"  A shade 'passed over the reader's face as  the editor cut his eye around fit him, and  he furtively felt to see how many stanzas  there were.  "How many pages arc there? What do  you think we might to pay for thai.?"  " Well, it's not very - Hub she's young."  said Uie associate, lie let (.he paper go  and it, sprung together like, a coiled wire.  "It strikes me quite 'very,'" said the  editor; " hut, you are t he poet's friend and  you can do as you like."  "Well." said the younger, after a pause,  "lam sincerely sorry for the pool* soul,  and I'll take it. We need not publish it."  "Unless we wish bo commit literary suicide," said the editor. "All right: but it  would be a great deal better, to write  frankly and tell her the thing's rot. .and  that she'd better darn her children's  stockings and .-.oe that-lhe bread is sweet."  He went back to his work find the associate editor returned to his. writing  among his first leblers one to the authoress of the "Ode to My Affinity." In it he  enclosed a. check anil said as little as he  could about the poem, which he pitched  into a drawer.  The incident-, was forgotten, until the  next month, when, ft- few days after the  appearance of the magazine, the mail  brought ti letter of nineteen pages from  the authoress, expressing her disappointment that \ier ode had not appeared, and  asserting iu vigorous language her opinion  of its superiority to several poems which  had been published.  The associate had just read the letter,  and was scratching his head over it when  the editor, looking up. caught his woebegone expression.  "Whitt is it.ra raking from the intellectual stfirver?" he asked maliciously.  "Well, yes, Unit's just what ib is," said  the associate.  Just at that moment voices were heard  in the outer ollice���the voice of the young  lady clerk who had a desk there, find it  sbrangeand higher voice, which was doing  most of the speaking.  "Well. I don't Witn t to talk to any young  woman; I did nob come here to have any  young creature impudent to me. I've got  iive children older than you. I waul to  see the editor find I'm going to." The  next instant she bounced into the door, a  sharp, litble arrow-laced woman, wibh a  keen, thin nose, bhin lips.and small black,  beady eyes, above which was a fringe of  dark hair, plastered down as stiff as lacquered tin. She carried a black bag in  one hand find a black fan in the other,  which   she   brandished  as   if  it  were a  weapon.  Which is the editor?  Or maybe you  fire both the gentlemen? (with a strong  sarcastic emphasis on bhe first syllable).  Well, I. have come to know what you have  done wibh that poem I sent you a month  ago, and which you accepted,-and have  prevented from being published?" She  setited herself sharply, and threw out her  fan with a'whirl like a lasso.  The associate editor, seeing her intention to take possession without an invitation, said, ��� meekly: "Madam, will you  take a seat?" She glared at him withering! y,- conveying plainly 'her declaration  that she did not need his permission to  do so.  "Well, what have you done with my  poem ?" she asked wibh as cold severity as  Draco might have asked .of some luckless  victim who stood a self-confessed thief.  "Madam, that is the poetry editor,"  said the chief,'with a twinkle in his eye."  "Ah!" She gave a sharp half-who'oi towards the associate find emitted her ejaculation with a long expiration, as one  might whohad, after long pursuit, found  the object of revenge. "Well, I'm glad  to find bhe righb person.

What have you  done with it?"  She paused for breath in ���-���heer exhaustion, bub her eye on the a-.-'neiate editor  was equal to ft highwayman's pistol.  The associate editor was speechless: but  the chief ('Mine to his rescue.. He said,  calmly:  "Mndf'ini^we shall  nob be able to publish your poem.    It was accepted under a  mistake and we will return it to you."  Her countenance fell.  '"���What!" She began: bub he was (oo  quick for her.    He saw his advantage.  "The poetry editor litis it, and will return   it  to ������ you, and   you   can   keep  the  money  we sent you in  payment for  tlie  time we have had possession of it."  She rose.  "Well, I nm glad to get it back on any  terms. I never wauled to publish it in  your old magazine anyhow. I never road  it, find I know no one else who does. I  have no doubt you have already sold it  to some other magazine for ten times the  miserable sum you gave me for it: and if  I wore not too much of a lady ever to be  able to quarrel, I should give you it piece  of my mind about it: but I never could  quarrel."  "No. madam, your forte is poetry."said  the associate editor, mildly, handing her  the MS. roll, which lie had got from its  pigeon-hole.  "Thank you. I don't want any compliments from you. sir," she said..-is she seized  the paper and, unrolling it. looked over il  page by page to see if any of it had been  abstracted. Then she turned to the editor: "Good morning, sir: I know a gentleman when* I see him: and (turning her  head, with nose in the air, towards the  associate) and I know one who is not a  gentleman, too. when I see him. and if it  were not that he has acted so gentlemanly  to me, I would have damages for this outrage if there were any justice in bhe law."  She sailed out with her fan clutched in  her hand. The editor-in-chief, turning to  his desk, began to murmur:  "Thou art to me a shining star  Mid amaranthine bowers."  When the associate said: "1 give up.  Make it Delmonico's. and name your time  and friends."  Rough on Pilgrims.  Of bhe !!)()() pilgrims that left, Tunis and  other ports in May last for Mecca, only  half have returned, the others having fallen victims to the cholera. Fully 12.000  friends aud relatives met bhe returning  pilgrims on their release from quarantine,  find there were many heartrending demonstrations of grief by the relatives of  those whohad succumbed to the disease.  The survivors tell terrible'tales of sulfer-  ing. On .June 2-lbh. 100.000 pilgrims were  gathered on the Sacred Mount to hear ft  solemn address, prior to their proceeding  to Mecca. Many-, of the multitude were  starving. The Mount resembled a battle  field, being strewn with the corpses of  victims of pestilence, among whom were  lying hundreds of ...the poorer wretches  who were flying from the dread disease..  So frightful wa.s the condition of-.affairs  bhat'no one dared-'approach the place.  Finally a battaiiou'.of 700 Turkish soldiers  was sent to bury the dead and rescue the  living. Five hundred of the soldiers lost  their lives iis a result of their devotion to  duty. Of the whole battalion only 200  men escaped the pestilence.

He  found lots of game and plenty of gold, hut so line il could  not. he saved. Ho had seen some ({nod ore from the SI.  Mary's country, bill not so high grade as lirst, reported,  hut good enough to make a good camp if there is pleniv  of it.  II. T. Wiltfi'iss. paymaster on the Pacific  division of Lhe Canadian I'aeille railway, came.into Xelson on Monday.  Tom Collins returned from the Salmon  River country, where lie had heen serving; siibpienas for  the government, on Monday.  John Sanderson  came down from Na-  kusp on Monday's boat, lie reporls lots of men round  there and plenty doing, but not much money in circulation.  Mr. Drurie of the photo topographical  survey and his parLy are again visiting Nelson.  Rev. T. II. Rodgers has severed his connection with the Nelson Presbyterian church and is leaving WesL ICootenay whenever his successor appears on  the scene.  A surprise party was held at Mr. a,nd  .Mrs. Colwell's house on Silica sLreeL on Tuesday nighL.  The steamer State of Idaho turned up  on Tuesday at Nelson on time in spite of Lhe complications with the state olHeers al Honner's Kerry. She is  making her regular trips.  W. Smith, the locator of the Mountain  Chief, came Lo town from Slocan lake on Monday.  Some Indians killed .several fine deer on  Grohmau creek this week.  Thk Trhjunmo office is the focus for the  sound   waves of three pianos, an indefinite number of  -   brass instruments, one piccolo, one banjo, an organ, and  a healLliv infant, to say nothingof.lack Gibson's attempt  at ScoLcli songs.  Five parties have been   subpeenad   to  answer Lhe charge of illicit, whisky selling on the line of  the Xelson & Kort Sheppard railway. MosL of litem look  on it as a hint Lo leave the country, which they are glad  to do, as they have about cleaned up all Lhe money Lhere  was in the busine.-s.  Frank Fie teller returned to Nelson on  .Monday night and left again on Tuesday for Winnipeg Lo  bring Mrs. Fletcher home.  R. Marpole was to have paid Xelson a  visit, this week but could not spare the time, having had  too much business to attend to in the Slocan counLrv.  His object was to arrange for the culvert that is Lo lie  built (town Ward creek. This important work will go on.  it is understood, without his personal intervention.  P. Coburn, Dunn, Winian & Go's Vancouver agent, and Kred Chilcotl left Nelson on Tuesday's  Lrain.  AV. S. IJineline, the passenger and freight  agent of lhe Canadian I'acilie at Scull Ic was in Nelson  tliis week. He is hooking the ore from Kaslo to San  Francisco, ami is doing a business that surpri.-os himself  and everyone else except a few faithful \\ est. ICootenay  cranks. He left, for Kaslo on Wednesday morning. Mr.  Hineline remarked that what, struck him as an outsider,  wa.s seeing such enormous wealth carele.--.ly handled iu  rough canvass bags.  Messrs. Hall  and  Macdonald  returned  from Colville on Tuesday. They were accompanied bv  Mrs. Hrown. tlie niother-in-law of Osner Oakes. It is  Mrs. Hrown's intention to build a house and reside permanently in Nelson.  Henry Corn of Kaslo has been sentenced  by justice of the peace R. S. Green to three months imprisonment for attempting to commit suicide by cutting  his throat.  The religious services in connection with  with the Methodist church in X'elson will be held in the  school house every Sunday until the new church is  erected.  .Mr. W". 11. Oakes of Colville was in town  this week and did a large commission business in vegetables from the Colville valley. Mr. Oakes thought that  when the Xelson & Kort Shepnard railway was completed no country could outbid the Colville valley in lhe  West. Kooteuay market for farm produce and fruit. He  is one of the late owners of the Silver King, but, lias nol  been in Nelson for two years.  \V. C. Ward of the IBank of British Col-  umhia is iu Nel.*on again. He had occasion to go east  over the Canadian l'acitic to St. Haul and Minneapolis,  after he left Nelson, and returned over the Great Northern via Honner's Ferry. He leaves for Victoria tomorrow.  Mr. Ward had a rough experience in Honner's Kerry. He  was there during the fire and is reported to have had lo  run down Main street with his shirt on wrong side foremost, or upside down, one of Lhe two, to escape the devouring Unities.'  ; Mr. Caton, purser on the steamer Columbia, who with his wife and family is visiting Xelson,  is laid up with intermittent fever at the Nelson hotel.  A   disastrous   fire  destroyed   half   the  town of Bonner's Ferry on Monday night. No further  particulars are to hand.  Professor Parkes returned from Kaslo  and tho Slocan country today. He reports a much better  feeling in Kaslo. The ore shipments are having a great  efleel, in relieving the situation.  The rumor current on the reappearance  of W. C. Ward, that tlie Hank of Hritish Columbia  would establish a branch ollice al Kaslo, is absolutely  without foundation.  Joshua Da vies and II. CJ. Tttfclow are expected to pay Nelson a visit during lhe uexL week or so.  II. E. Croasedtiile ctinie down from Toad  mountain today. Ho will remain in Nelson until the arrival of Mr. Neilson and his co-director, which is expected  on Monday. Mr.Neilson telegraphed that, he would be in  Revelstoke loinorrow.  thirty to forty miles distant I'rojii the  coast that could be annexed, and suggested that Hawaii annexed, California  would take care of it. Allison said that  he had some such idea, -''ray and Ilaw-  ley thought favorably of it and of another  suggestion by Perkins, that congress  might pass a law annexing bhe island to  California, the California legislature to  sanction such act. Spreckels is understood lo have said nothing, but as Perkins  is his bosom friend, it is supposed that, ho  approves, if he did nob suggest the idea.  Tho Dread Unknown.  A patrolman on Rivard street, Detroit,  came along to a grocery on his bca t about  II o'clock the other night and found a  large watermelon on the platform, while  leaning against a post a short distance  away wa.s tin aged colored man. The  street wa.s deserted and the officer could  not understand what kept the melon and  the negro apart. "Isn't i.hat a temptation to you?" he asked the man. ''I dun  reckon it is, boss. Ize bin lookin tit dal  lnellyttn for tie last half hour. "And why  didn't you take it?" " Release, sail, l/.e  had some 'sperience wid white folks in my  time. Might be dat de grocdr dun forgot  to lake dat niellyun in when he closed up,  but its a good deal more possible!1 dat he  poured iu a dose of jalap and left it out  yore to be walked off wid." ''But how  are you going to know." " Dat's what  makes my heart ache, boss. If de niellyun  are all right, den l/.e lost a golden opportunity. If it's bin dosed, don I hain't bin  played for a- sucker. It's de onsnrtinty  dttt keeps mo around yore till my knees  ache tin' I feel like havin' a chill."  Line Between Nelson and Kaslo Sold.  On  Tuesday  a meeting   of  the Kootenay Lttkc Telephone Company wa.s held  in Nelson, at which the necessary authority was given to W. F. Teetzel, secretary,  to   sign   papers   and   complete   the  sale  which transfers the trunk line of the company  between   Nelson and  Kaslo to the  Canadian Pacific .Railway Company.   The  money consideration wtis $3_0() cash.    In  this  way the company gets rid of what  has always  proved a white elephant on  its    hands.     The    repairs    necessary   to  J<eep the trunk line in order made a serious hole in the profits accruing from the  town   circuits.    The company may  now  expect  to p-.y steady dividends.    I bap-  pears  that the towns people of Kaslo do  not  make so  much use of the local telephone system as those of Nelson.    This is  perhaps due to their less advanced state  of civilization, but may be caused by the  convenience   to   .Nelson   people   of 'communicating with  the  banks, depot, and  government offices through the telephone.  It  is not such a personal matter to ask  for tin  overdraft over   the   wires as   to  board the manager in his private office.  The Sugar Combine Again on the Job.  At a quiet little dinner given by Clans  Spreckels, in Washington, there were  present Spreckels, the Oxnnrd Brothers,  the big sugar men, senators Allison. Utile,  Gray, Hawloy, White of Louisiana, Perkins of California-, and Gorman. After the  dinner Perkins observed that it might lie  a good idea to annex the Hawaiian  islands, not to the United States as a separate state, but to the state of California,  lie   pointed   out   several    islands   from  Gone Back to Africa.  Canadian Gazette: F. C. Selous, the  champion lion hunter, and the rival of II.  M. Stanley in African exploration, has  been obliged to postpone the visit he intended to pay to J3ritisn Columbia this  autumn. The critical condition of affairs in Mashonaland gave that country  prior claims on him, and he left Fngliind  by the Drummond Castle last Saturday  for that part of his favorite continent.  "If," ho say, "Mashonaland is in danger,  my duty is to be there to lend the boys a  hand." If possible Mr. Selous will return  to England at the end of this year. Me  may be shooting in the Pacific province  during the coming winter. Mr. Selous  intended to shoot first in Colorado and  ihen go north to British Columbia.  To be Built to Three Forks This Winter.  The Nakusp railroad will be completed  to Three Forks just as fast as as engineers,  contractors, and tracklayers can get their  work   in.    Preparations   are   now   being  made for shipping in supplies, iu order  that work may,go on through the winter.  There is a largo quantity of rock work to  be done along the shores of Slocan lake,  which will keep a number of men employed in grading all winter. On Slocan  lake there will be lively times, although  everything is quiet there tit present. The  summer of 1891 will see a railroad in the  heart of the Slocan mines, a great achievement iu the short time since the discovery  of the camp, when it is remembered how  far away it was from trunk linos of traffic.  Nearly So.  Coroner���"Is this man whom you found  dead on the railway track a total  stranger?" Mike (who has boon told to  be careful in his statement)���"No, sor.  His legs was gone entoirely.

USINESS OPfflING!  number of slanderous imputations upon  distinguished men inserted in his "histories" by himself or his employees. One  of the most outrageous of these libels  was the following fling tit General Grant,  which appeared in Lhe early editions of  the "History of Oregon," and was forced  out of the later ones by the pressure of  indignant patrons:  "Among these soldiers was U. S. Grant,  ;i until of mediocre abilities and somewhat  loose habits, subsequently elevated by accident to the head of the army and twice  to the presidency of the United States.  Not satisfied to rest upon the world's  highest honors, he turned and took a,  downward course, asked again to be pres-  idontand was refused, and finally engaged  in business, which was disreputably ina.n-  tigeil and resulted in ignominious failure.  So the end of the man wa.s as bad as the  beginning."  There is only one possible defense for  this atrocious assault. It must be that  general Grant had refused the terms offered by Mr. Bancroft as a dealer iu immortality. Perhaps he so far forgot himself as to kick the historian down stairs  when approached with tlie customary  offer. People who have formed their  ideas of historians from reading about  such persons as Gibbon, Grote, Freeman,  Moinmsen, Motley, and Parkman, do not  fully iindursln.nd tho kind of historian  Mr. Bancroft is. To say that Mr. Bancroft's history-factory is run as a commercial enterprise is to make only a. half  statement of the truth. Macaulay made  money out of his history by writing a  good book and selling it to tin appreciative public, but we believe that San l-'ran-  cisco is entitled to tho sole credit of producing an eminent historian who not only  sells his finished product but derives a  revenue from the producers of the raw  material. We have not heard of any  other scholar of sufficient magnitude to  get his works seriously reviewed by critical journals all over the world, who has  made a practice of levying toll upon the  famous characters ho writes about, and  apportioning theni glory or odium according to the returns from their financial  assays.  Mr. Bancroft has superintended the execution of a colossal work. There-is much  good material in it. but its value is hopelessly impaired for posterity by its omission to furnish any indication by which  "star ads" may be distinguished from  pure reading matter.  .
