IT*-.:.  CANADIANS DO GOOD WORK  Small Budget of 'War News.  London, February -..���Tlio  Standard's   correspondent   at    Modeler  .River  gives   tlio  following  picturesque glimpse ol' the Canadian contingent: Otezla Dopicho Vous, Say,  there, bring her over,  and  similar  commands    and    exhortations    in  English      and       Canadian-French  greeted   the  ears  at Orango  river  while the train'"was being  boarded  by   tin.   Gordons  going  up  to   the  front-. ThoCanadians hadarrived the  day before from   DeAar, and in one  day, they had laid down   and   completed a mile and a quarter of railroad,  and   build   a  now platform.  Railway.making, under the South  African sun in December, is no play,  and the sight of these  men   of the  north handling   sleepers  and   rails  with thegreatest dispatch and enthusiasm, and   working   in   a   way  that white   men   seldom   work   in  South Africa, was an  object lesson,  nf the thoroughness of the spirit of  patriotism which animates all ranks  and sections  of   the  Rritish   force  now fighting the Rocrs."  London,    February    5.���Spencer  Wilkinson,   in   the   Morning   Post  -says:     "Tlio tide  i.s . beginning   to  turn.    Jn   the   western   border   of.  the war it looks as  though general  i   French   had  boon .reinforced,   perhaps   by  general   Ghermaides   brigade.    This would be the 'beginning  of  a  systematic  direction   of  the,  campaign.    When  general   French  has'disposed of the enemy forming  his present objective, his   force will  be available for  other  operations."  Dealing  Avith   the   possible  operations   of   general    French,   Kelly-  Kenny and Gal acre, Mr. Wilkinson  says:    ''There   is   now   a prospect  that   in   two  or   three a\eeks  the  Rritish forces will   bo   holding   the  passage-, of   the   Orange   liver, re-  pahing the bridges  and   collecting  all the   requisites for the  advance  norUlwaid,   to     begin     as     soon  :is    lord     Roberts'     can    see    his  ���way    l<>    order    the    movement."  ^" There arc  n.jw more than 'eaough  Loops    between    the    eo-isl     nnd  Orange river to form three infantry  divisions   and   a cavalry  di\ision>  \\ ithout counting either the colonial  mounted    troops   and   five   militia  battalions which can  be used to 10-  lieva regular battalions on the lines  of     communication.

Me recommends rearming  ihe hatfeiies with the best modern  guns, and in shoit the organi'/ation  and (quipmont of the available  foi cos rather than hasty endoaxors  to recruit untrained men.  ���J_oxi)(i.\% February 0.���The Capo  Town eorie-ipoudont of the Daily  "Chronicle says-. ;~"Thc SouthAfi ican  l;eague litis pa-sod n resolution that  it regards with regret, and  almost with de.-p.iir, the pio-  babilii.y of the authorities trying colonial rebels before a jury.

London, February .1. - Tho Avar  ollice at midnight announced that  there would be no news from the  front.  only become possessed of one side  of the story. The other side is  disclosed in the correspondence  between tho colonel and myself,  lint 1 do trust that no misguided  friends of colonel Hughes Avill call  for the correspondence, as it cannot  fail to place the colonel in a most  unenviable light. It is now before  the government. The incident possesses most unfortunate features,  features that I trust Avill not again  be repeated."  SHUTDOWN JT  ROSSLAND  Two Mines Stop' Production.  Rossi,an i),    'February     !..���The  Rossland Minor Avill say tomorroAV :  "The   machinery   troubles   of   the  _War lOagle  and   Centre Star  companies have at last brought about  the disaster long predicted by many  shrewd mining.mon in this district.  They  are  now .compelled   to  stop  production   until   the   new ���mach-  inery i.s installed, and the exhausted  development  in  the  War Eagle is  caught up.    The men in  the slopes  Avill'bo laid off tomorrow night, and  only a  small  number retained   for  construction and doA'clopinciit.   Mr.  Kii'by,  the  general   manager,  has  issued two letters  to  the  management of both mines, and these have  been embodied in a  circular  issued  to the shareholders today.    To the  Associated Press correspondent Mr.  Kii-by   expressed   the    disappointment and deep  regret  Avith  Avhich  the directors and management .have,  taken the step.    All shipments and  consequent   dividends    Aviil    cease  after tomorrow, and it Avill be some  months before the now  machinery  ���will be installed and  shipments re  NO OPPOSITION PRESENTED  sinned.

Leckie is avuII  known us a mining engineer of this  place. He graduated from the  I.oval Military College, Kingston,  and is said to have obtained a lieutenant's commission in the JIor.sc.  As'a large number here are anxious  to join the contingent arrangements  are being made to have lieutenant  Leckiu \Uit Greenwood to inspect  men. Charles Richter of O.soyoos,  Frank Ellis of Penticton, Alfred  Swiuborn, and William and .loft  Brent, well known cow-punchers of  Southern Vale, have beeu accepted  to form part of the scouting section of,Stiathcona\s Horse.  In the House of Commons.  London, February 5.���There AA'as  a multiplicity of Avar questions in  the house of commons today, but  little interest Avas taken in them.  Mr. George Wyndham, parliamentary under secretary for the war  ollice, said in answer to a question  that tho government had no information regarding the alleged shooting of Irish prisoners, by orders of  colonel Baden-Powell and general  Methiien. . Answering another  question, Mr. Wyndham said that  the British artillery in South Africa  was fully up to the continental  standard.  Mr. A. J. Balfour, the government  leader, replying to Mr."William  Redmond, Irish nationalist, said the  secretary of state for the colonies,"  Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, ���never  made any such announcement as  the one referred to by Mr. Redmond, namely that a triple alliance  between Great Britain, the United  States and Germany had beeu arrived at. -Replying to another  question of'Mr. Redmond, suggesting the formation of a volunteer  corps in Ireland, to replace, .the  troops AvithdraAvn, Mr. Balfour said  he recognized the patriotism of Mr.  Redmond's constituents, but to  thus change -the settled policy of  the .government, required further  consideration.'  The debate on the address in reply to the speech from the throne  Avas then resumed by sir William  Vornon Harcourt. Liberal, who declared the Avar AA-as due to a re\rersal  of tho policy laid; down by the  government in 1 SSI and 1895. lie-  A'ioAving the negotiations -sir William said the great misfortune Avas  that tho men consulted in legard to  tlio situation in South Africa were  the authors of the raid, and the  zealots of Park Lane.  Here Mr. Chamberlain interjected,  "Does the right honorable gentle-'  man mean to assert that the per-  son�� to Avhom ho refers Avere-eon-  sulted by the colonial office, and  that no others Avere consulted?"  The Liberal statesman parried  the question. Regarding the at .  lacks on the South African committee, of winch lie Avas fi, member.  Sir William said tho only reason so  far as he was .aware, that the in-  A'ostignlion AA'as not pursued  further, was that tho committee  AA'ould have to reassemble during  the following session of pailiamonl,  and the author of tho raid had  sutfioiont influence inside and outside tho house to prevent the reappointment of the committee. lie  also  urged   that  tho slandon, ro-  vigorous  prosecution?     The   Avar,  the secretary claimed, could  not be  avoided except by the absolute surrender on the part of Great Britain  of all  to  which  she attached importance.    Believing the Avar inevitable, how could thoy vote  for  an  amendment that said the Avar  Avas  avoidable?   Policy of that sort was  said    to    unite    the    party,   but  iu  the eyes   of   Europe   it threw  doubt   upon   the    union    of    tho  United Kingdom.    "We have  suffered checks," said Mr. Chamberlain,  "and  have  made 'mistakes.    J   am  not anxious  to  dispute as to  tho  blame.    Let  the government  bear  the   brunt   until  the  time   conies  when,  under  happier0auspieos, \ve'  can see Iioav far the blame i.s  to be  apportioned   between   tho   ss'stem  and those administering it.    In the  mean time, blamo u&t What is now  urgent i.s  to  redress^  those checks  and  to  repair mistakes.    You say.  Ave have' sent' too   fdw troops, but  wo-'are*-pouring them  into South  Africa.   Jn  a few 'weeks   avc will  have 200,000   men tlfere.    AVe  will  haA'e     as     many    mounted    men  as    there     are    mounted     Boers.  Our       colonies       are       multiplying        their        offers.        '.. JSve'ry  officer is  gratofullyjaceopted,  and  lord   Roberts   has    seleeted   from  aniong tho  colonials his  guard  of  honor.   .McaiiAvhilc the spirit of the  nation is  unbroken.    There  is  no  sacrifice 'which Ave ai;e im willing to  make.    There is ho sacrifice Ave tire  mi Avilling to ask of [the colonies if  we think it hepessary to ask. I must  go further than this and admit that  this war, under new. conditions, in  a   new -country, .Avith new  amis,'  against a new  people,  whoso  tenacity and courage arc as admirable  as the courage and tenacity of our  own soldiers, lias required a  larger  scheme  than  any tlio. goA'ernment  has yet been called''upon to meet.  One of the lessons of the Avar is the  enormous     defensive   power   possessed  by  troops  defending   tlieir  own country.    Tho second  point is  that AA'hen avc propose a  scheme to  moot this emergency we shall do so,  not as a party, but as a nation.  No  oilier nation has ovci   had a better  right, Jiowaver, toJb.e proud of her  soldiers.    What other nation could  transport   so     many    troops,    so  great a distance, so Avell?  Referring tio statements regarding national gloom,Mr. Cluiiubci iaiu  said, "I do not '"accept the phrase.  I know of anxietv and of in itatiou  perhaps, but not of vacillation approaching fear or gloom." The  colonel secretary concluded AA'ith a  glowing ttibuto to the manner in  which the colonies had rallied to  the empire. "We aie iioav finding  the indefinite pot< nihilities-; unci io--  sources of the empire. We ate advancing  to the   realization   of that  Not Lacking in Bravery.  Bi-i-X-iN*, J<\-bruary Tt.���Lieutenant  colonel Wachs, of the war department, said to tho Associated Press  today : "The prestige of the British army cannot be said to hiiA-e  suffered so far as its fighting qualities aro concerned. Both privates  mid officers have behaved Avith  the utmost bra A'ery in action, as the  lists of dead and Avounded show."  Colonel Hughes' Letters.  Ottaava, February 5.���In regard  to the colonel Hughes' episode in  not getting employment in South  Africa, general Button in an interview .����� ays: " Tho public so far lias  The Athu Telegraph Line.  WiN.vii'f'-G, J<.ebrua'ry 5.���-A. B.  Charleston of Ottawa, has gone  Avest Avith a gang of seventeen men  to commence Avork on the telegraph  line from Atlin to Quosnelle. He  Aviil engage thirty moie men at  VancouA'er. The first stretch will  be from Atlin to Telegraph creek, a  distance of !3i4 miles. From Tele  graph creek, the new line Avill  branch off for J(nzelton, a distance  of U){) mile-, and from Jlazellon to  Quosnelle, .!00 miles.  Slocan Deal Goes Through.  The Donnelley group has been  taken up by major Hackctt for au  eastern syndicate and men haA'e  been put to Avork ou the ground. It  is the intention to work both tunnels, and a force of tAvehre men Avill  be employed. The price is not made  public, but $2.">,000 is understood to  be the figure, on a cash basis.  garding the connivance of the  goA'ormnenl in the raid,1 should bo  rebutted. Sir William contended  that though tho war "Was an unhappy business, il must be fought  out to tho bitter end.  Mr. Chamberlain followed, dwelling on the broad issues, juid not  dealing so much Avith the details.  ~lfo pa ill "a- glowing lribiite~~to iho  colonies aud tho promise of tho  future federation of the empire,  evoking immense enthusiasm. Mr,  .Chamberlain admitted that il critical state of the war had been  reached, and that the situatioi; aviis.  undoubtedly serious, though, he  added, he did not believe tho country was in danger. Ho refused to  discuss the South African committee  and briefly .summariy.cd the negotiations Avith the Tiansvaah If the  preparations AVero insufficient, he  continued, it avus wholly due to th-ft  fact that the government was determined to do everything lo secure  peace, and to do nothing to endanger  it. * Mr. Chauibcr.-_.in further declared that the war .was. just,  necessary and righteous. Ho regretted the proposed amendment to the address because, he  saul, it Avould throAV doubt upon  tho uniteduess of the kingdom.  It Avouid be premaliuc, continued  the colonial secretary, to talk of  tho terms of settlement. "But," he  asserted, "there Avill be no second  Majuba. Never again shall the  Boers erect in the heart of South  Africa a citadel from Avhence shall  proceed disaffection and race animosity. Never again shall they be  able to endanger the '-upreniacy of  Great Jiiitain. Never again shall  thoy be able to treat an. Englishman as though he belonged to an  inferior race."  Mr. Chamberlain asked the opposition whether they believed in the  proposition that the Avar was necessary, whether they proposed to  vote for the war as unjust and unnecessary, and  then   vote for its  'I'oat federation of our race  Avhich  peace,  must   inevitably   make  for  liberty and justice."  John Dillon said that the Nationalists, believing the aa.'U' to he an  unjust and iniquitous Avar of aggression, entirely unprovoked, Avere  unable lo support an lunendment  declaring that Avar should be prosecuted Avith vigor, lie pressed for  "the publication-!)f goneral_sir"Wilr  liam Butler's dispatches, saying:  "It is generally believed that sir  William Butler considered that in  case of war. no attempt should be  made to protect Natal beyond the  Tugela. If so tho country i.s entitled to know." Mr. Dillon, continuing, said that the military lop-  utation of England was irreparably  ruined, that the liners had established a claim to be ficc, and (iiat  no amount of liiuto force  could ever diniini��h their aims.  ^ London', Fohiuary _>. -In the  house of common;- -today Mr. Chamberlain lcplied to tho question iu  regard to the death notice published  by the Standard on Saturday, reading: "MeLi-chl-an, on Chiislmas  day, shot iu the matket Square,  Ilarrismith, Orange Free Slate,  South Africa, for refusing to fight  against his oWn countrymen. .John  McLaehlan, junior, aged HO, eldest  son of WandsAvorth, and grandson  of the late John McLaehlan of Lambeth."  _\lr. Chamberlain-said he had ic-  ceived a cable message from the  govei nor of Natal to the effect that  the report of the shooting of McLaehlan had appeared in the press,  but had been subsequently contradicted. The governor added that  ho knoAV of no foundation for the  report, but AA'as trying to obtain  in formation in regard to the matter. The goA'ernment, Mr. Chamberlain added, hail asked the British ambassadors at Washington to  lequest the Lniled Slates government to inquho into tho matter at  Pretoria, through the United States  consul there.  LEAK IN REVENUE LOCATED    j  It Will Be Stopped.-  The city council met last night  and transacted- a big budget of  business. All tho members Avere in  attendance, save alderman IrA'ine  avIio is on a leave of absence.  The question of an account for  keeping I_atimer street in passable  condition -AA'as brought up. The  Avork was done during the first  Aveek of the neAV council's regime  on the authority of the mayor and  city engineer, and Avhen the account  was presented to the finance committee thoy considered it politic to  refer the matter to the council as a  Avhole. In discussing the point the  aldermen agreed that the work AA'as  necessary, and aldermen Morrison  and McKillop moved'that the time-  list be paid, AA'hich was carried.  City clerk Strachan and fire chief  Thompson gaA'e the result of their  tour of inspection, recommending  that the city control the supply of  electric light lamps as a measure of  prevention of substitution of higher  candle power Lamps than those  mentioned in the applications. They  also recommended'that'.the citizens  should be notified that it is an  offence under the Water Clauses  Act to giA'o or sell Avater supplied  them by the city.      ;'  Alderman Arthur remarked that  the income from lighting AA'as  $100  less than it should be, and> the city  clerk   rejoined   that this was   not  surprising Avhen it became eA'ident  that -in  some  instances 10  and 10  candle  power lamps   had mysteriously grown  into ^2's.    "This is a  growing year" remarked  alderman  McKillop  and  the   council  smiled.  The mayor expressed the  opinion,  in   Avhich   alderman   Aithur   concurred,   that   the  introduction   of  meters Avas the best Avay to  avoid  trouble,  and  that  the city  Avould  eventually  have  lo introduce  this  system.    The report Avas filed.  An application for a franchise to  siting Aviics for a messenger service  and lire alarm system was made by  ,). J.'Malone and dtheis.��' Jt Avas  slated that such a privilege could  only be granted after the proposi-'  tioif had 'been submitted to the  people. Tiie mayor remarked that  ali full Hedged eities>   had 'both of  the --syj-tcms in question, and this  might bo an excellent opportunity  for the cily lo secure both AviUiout  co.s t. '  Alderni-in Arthur and McKillop  moved that tho clerk be instructed  to notify the applicants to forwaid  their bylaAV.  The report of the chief of the lire  department \A"a.s   load.-  He  lecoin  mended -ovoral matters .is follows:  That an additional Station bo established in block   10  as  that  dintiict  could not be reached undei the pie-  senL  circumstances.    That   a  hose  wagon or combination  hose wagon  and chemical be secured.    That the  lendeis  for the  lire alarm  sy.stem  now on hand bo dealt with.     That  1000or 1.100 feet of paragon ho?e bo  purchased  and   1(5  pah.s of strong  rubber   shoes   for   the men, as   the  shoes   in  present   use aie   almost  ii.eless.    Thi'   leport was   icceived.  The matter of  the  city   bylaw*  aviis bjoached by a   letter  from AV,  A.  (tatliher,  including  an   opinion  from   F. P.   Davi-s,  Q.  C,  of Vancouver, _ro  Tt-avos, vs,  Nelson,  in  Avhich     Mr,    Davis   expio-sed   the  view that that the consolidated by-'  laws Avere valid.    Various' alder men  e,\pro.s-cd the opinion that the  fire  aud  other    bylaws   should   be  ic-  enacted and put in such shape that  they could not possibly ho attacked.  Alderman McKiHop gave  notice  that at the next meeting of the city  council   ho   would   introduce a fire  limit bylaw, and alderman   Arthur  gave  similar notice  regarding the  license bylaw.  Mayor II. If. Pitts, secretary of  the 'committee which is endeavoring to adjust tho labor diHieultie-f  at Sandon, a\ rote requesiing the  council to send a delegate to attend  the session of the conference today.  A question arose as to 'Avhcthcr a  repiesentative could reach Sandon  in time to attend the meeting, but  the mayor thought some action  should be taken to indicate that  the citjr A\as interested in the settlement. Aldermen Hall and Arthur moved that K. R. Athetton be  advised by Avire of his appointment  as delegate of the City of Nelson to  the conference.  Applications were received from  1). A.

The bylaw will be  finally passed at the next meeting.  Alderman Arthur drew attention  to several crossings Avhich had been  torn up by the tramway company,  and not repaired as ordered by the  council. Aldermen Hall and Arthur moved that ii crossing belaid  on Baker street on the east line of  Stanley Avhen the Aveather is suitable. The other crossings are to be  attended to also.  The Kootenay Electric Supply k  Construction Company will be  asked to furnish the council with a  price list of electric supplies.  P. Burns & Co. applied for 25 or  30 electrical; horse power to drive  their cold storage plant. A special  committee consisting of 'mayor  Houston, aldermen Hall and Morrison, Avas appointed to go into the  matter Avith the firm.  But one tender; Avas received for  the Avork of macadamizing fiA'e  blocks on. Baker street, 2000 feet  more or less. The tender aviis from  Cannell Brothers, and thCprice av.-is  $03S9.09.

The mayor reported that the  rock broken for macadamizing at  the corner of Josephine aiid Victoria streets had cost the city $1 JO  per yard, so that, in figuring, the  cost of such material might be estimated at from $1.2.3 lo$l.'10 per  yard.  An estimate Avas driiAvn, based on  the above figures as to the pioba-  ble cost Avhich the city would be at  iu undertaking JJtc avoi k, aud  finally the iuatter~Avas refcried to  tho public Avorks committee.  A number of lenders >for supplying roadt building apparatus" were  opened and leferred to the board of  works.

Mr.  Stewart confirms the statement that  he has secured the big contract, but  pointed out that he is quite alone  in the matter and is not in any  AA'iiy associated with Mr. Welsh who  AA'as quoted as his partner in the  undertaking.  Referring' to  the Balfour extension, -.Mr.  StcAvart' said':     "I will  make my headquarters  in  Nelson-  until the AA'orkisover which I figure  AA'ill be some six months hence.

If tho man  who made the affidavit knoAA's Avhat  lie is  talking  about, the men  Avho  brought him into British Columbia  violated the alien labor law of the  Dominion.    If the law was violated  iu   his   individual   case,   the  pio-  bability   is   that it   was   likewise  violated the eases of the twenty-  two  other  men  Avho accompanied  Taidift.   The affidavit of TaidW is  of use in so far as  it furnishes "the  federal   government with   an opportunity for starting an  enquiry  into the matter of tho importation  of aliens by the Payne mine.   If an  enquiry is made it will show  that  the federal government is sincere in  in  its   assurance' to puni&h those  Avho violate the  laws  of the Dominion.    Jf no notice is taken of the  matter, it -will convince the miners  of Kootenay that the  appointment  of the recent commission AA'as nieic-  ly a bin ft to pacify the wage earners  of   Kootenay,      The   attention' of  commissioner Clute it.  respectfully  directed to the matter.  Avho enacted it, they Avill not fool  many people by the enactment of  arbitration legislation which in the  end shall have no legal effect.  Tin. difference between the present city council and the one which  preceded it Avas illustrated at last  evening's session. Last year the  members of the city council made a  practice of meeting- and gravely  discussing the 'leak in the city's  receipts for electric lighting. They  discussed the leak. They indulged  in speculation as to where it Avas.  They estimated its volume in dollars.  They did everything, in short, but  take any steps to stop the leak. The  members of the present council  have been.in office for less than a  month, but they have located tho  leak. They instructed the city  clerk and the chief of the fire department to make a personal inspection of" all premises where electric light is used. Their inspection has been completed, and  the report of the inspectors  is that the consumers of  lectricity are using more than  they are paying the corporation  for. Making alloAyances for the  prompt payment of rates, the inspectors report that the consumers  of electric power use $400 Avorth of  poAver each month, for which they  pay the corporation nothing. This  rather considerable sum AA'as lost to  the corporation last year because  the city council had no knowledge  of the power Avhich it supplied to  its customers. It -will be saved to  the city now because the present  council is made up of men who prefer to Avork rather than orate, and  Avho believe in knoAving Avhere they  aro at. A saving of �� 100 a month  is a rather good start foi' a uoav  administiation within three Aveeks  of its return to office.  HEIN2E TO SUCCEED CLARK  .

Helena, Montana, February <_..���  With the growing conviction iu  this state that dinted States senator Clark Avill be unseated as a result of the charges of bribery and  Corruption preferred against him,  political gossips are beginning lo  "speculate upon his successor. Montana is politically divided into the  east and west sides by that portion  of the Itocky mountain chain between Helena and Butte. And as  senator Thomas ,tf. Cartel' is a resident of this city, many are inclined  to- believe-that governor- Smith-  would, should the occasion arise,  appoint a west sider.  In this ca^e, .1. II. Durston, editor  of the Anaconda Staudaid, the personal organ of Marcus Daly, receives most prominent mention.  Should Clark be ousted, it/is argued  Durston, avIio had conducted the  fight for Daly, should f-ccure the  plum. The Standard has been most  aggre.sf.ive in its attack:-) upon  Clark and tho whole campaign  against him has been conducted  from its oflicc, as Daly, the spirit,  behind the tin one, has been ill in  New York, ami unable to give the  matter any attention other than  gencial directions.  J. 11. Durston came to Montana  from Syracu-'o, New York, whcie  he was employed on the Standard,  and after which the Anaconda  paper takerf its name. He has made  it one of the most popular papers  in the northwest, and should he secure the prize it is conceded even  by the enemies of ihe so-called Daly  faction, that he has the necessary  qualifications. The sueeoas of tho  Standard has been most phenomenal.  Twelve years ago Daly desiiedan  organ for hi.s faction of the Democratic party, lie preferred to establish it in Butte, where the  Anaconda company's mines are  located, but \V. A. Clark, owner of  tho Butte Miner, Avith its exclusive  Associated Pi ess franchise, stood in  the way. Consequently. Daly was  compelled to go to Anaconda, a  small village at that time and no  mora capable of supporting a  metropolitan daily than Ocono-  mowoc,  Wisconsin.     To   compete  Avith the Miner, it was "necessary to  run a special newspaper train to  Butte each morning, Avhich method  of reaching the metropolis of Montana is still in A'ogue. A complete  office force is still maintained in  Butte and the matter is transmitted  to Anaconda by means of a leased  Avire. Despite these handicaps, its  prestige in Butte and throughout  the state is A'ery great. Aud for  the upbuilding of.this paper Durston is given the entire management  of Daly's political affairs, and is  doubtless his choice for senator. So  confident is Durston of being chosen  as Clark's successor, he is uoav in  Washington learning the "ropes."  But the Clark faction, Avhile not  admitting that tlieir chieftain Avill  lose his seat, maintain that if he  doesenough influence can bobronght  to bear upon governor Smith to  pre vent theselcction of an Anaconda  company man, for the governor has  decided A'iews upon trusts and as  the Anaconda company is accused  of being one he would abstain from  abetting what is said to be a branch  of the Standard Oil Company, which  is reputed to be the largest" stock-  Iiolder in the so-called copper trust.

This in spite'of* the  fact that far older and richer men  Avere already at her feet, and she  could even haA'e married a rich and  gouty old duke, had she so desired.  But -Miss.Butler did not so desire;  and, in truly Irish fashion, took no  pains   to   hide  her  preference   for  Dudley, who was merely the third  son  of a  poverty-stricken   Scotch  peer, and as thorough a detrimental  as one could find in a (lay's travel.  No Avonder that'the. girl's family  SAArore, stormed, and Avept, respectively;  OA'en .Hadlcy-Benton,- with''  his rich mining and broking father,'  AA'ould haA'e been a more desirable  party.    But,  no;. headstrong*.-Miss.  Bailor  Avould  have  none  of   him,  none of the nasal Yankee millionaire who was hunting "a Avife from  the nobility," none of the gouty old  duke.

Another lalgo lot  expected Saturday.  Call or phone,  cd Dudley instead of Miss Butler.  Krstwhile friendship on his part  turned to bitter envy and hate, and  the rejected suitor quietly promised  himself revenge when the chance  came.  Of all this the Hon. Duncan knew  nothing, and suspected less. He  Aviis busy applying for and receiving a diplomatic uiuler-appointment  in Paris, which Avould enable him  to marry and thenceforth support  his wife iu at least comparative  luxury.  And  this  is  Avhere IIac.ley-B1.1_-  toii's  prayed-for  opportunity  presented itself.    For, Avhile in Paris,  secure in his present happiness and  soon-to-be ..Avetlded bliss,  the Hon.  Duncan   proceeded to indulge himself in a particularly foolish though  brief  flirtation   Avith  a  handsome  American   Avoman.     Some unkind  people called her  that ugly  AA'ord  '���adventures?," though others merely said that shcAvas "sporty."    And  the flirtation Avas a desperate one.  It ended'-as suddenly as it began,  howeArer, for the lady's ''sportiness"  AA'as a   little  too   much for  eA'en  sporty  Duncan,  avIis isoon  beat a  rapid and not too dignified retreat  from gay  Paris, still companioned  by his faithful Damon, and the "incident"   was by him considered as  closed.  To exultant Had ley-Ben ton "incidents" were just beginning, however, and within  four hours after  his return to London, Miss Butler1  and Miss Butler's father knew all  about the Paris-adventuress  "incident."   .Hadlcy-Benton had "deemed it his duty" to impart full details,  and    Miss     Butler's    father    had  tljanked him for so doing.    A brief  intei'A'ieAv .followed ; some inconsequent and  rather  pitiful   excuses  Avere  made by Dudley,  but. Avhat  excuse avails in  such cases, when  offered  to a  faithful'  and   single-  minded girl?   Mr. Duncan Dudley's  ring Avas returned, a few cold, stinging words were spoken to him by  his'cx-fiancce, an insult or two offered by her father, and then the  Hon. Duncan Avas shown ceremoniously to the "door.    Added to all of  Avhich, ho next day had the happi-  nc-s  of heaiidg   that his  ex-chum  and present undoor, Hadley-Benton,  had again proposed to Miss Butler  ���this    time     successfully.       Tho,  marriage,  said the society, papers,  Avould take place wifchin thirty days.  ' From this  time   commences the  downfall of the Hon. Duncan Dudley.    For even a third son can find  ways and means wherewith to goto  the "demmlion bow-AvoAvs," and the  thorough     \Telocity    of     Dudley's  down-hill pace is eA'en yet spoken of  as an example of what a man can do  in that line, even in London,    He  was ab the bottom of degradation's  hill, an outcast and disowned by his  family,  Avhen an  old  uncle,  from  Avhom-ho had expected to inherit,  sent for him and offered him his  choice between a pistol and tmvel-  ing cxpcn_.es to Australia.

Two days later he purchased instead, under the name of  John Simpson, a ticket for Panama.  And Avith that purchase ends the  career of the Hon. Duncan Dudley,  so far as Great Britain is concerned;  end, also, our interest in Miss Aileen  Butler, Avho soon afterward became  the unhappy and unloving Avife of  Mr. liichard Had ley-Ben ton���Avith  Avhich latter personage Ave have not  yet finished.  Regarding    Mr.   John    Simpson,  second-class passenger from Liverpool on tho British South American  and Panama S. S. liner Paloma, it  Avould be an impossible feat to follow  his fortunes  and misfortunes  through  the next ten   years.    He  had logged on the Amazon, dug for  gold in theGuianas, gambled unsuccessfully in Panama, and at last, in  desperation,    had   drifted   to0 the  Mexican border.    There he had the  fortune to saAre the life of a Mexican  girl,  the  only daughter of a  ranchero, avIio OAvned ranehos and a  mine or two in the western part of  Mexica, just then in process of de-  A-elopment by various English and  American syndicates.  This girl, Anita by name, was  rather "pretty; though dark and  chubby, as Mexican girls of ten are.  But she AA'as sAveet, innocent, and  A'ery faithful, and she let Simpson  see that she cared for him, and  Avould marry him if he so desired.  Strange to say, he did desire; his  life had been such that the pure |  and unselfish love or even a Mexican girl meaut much to him, aud he  swore that he Avould reform, once  married to Anita. Wherefore he  married Anita, sobered up in a  manner that astounded even himself, refused to accept help from his  somewhat grumpy father-in -law,  and found a job as assistant assayer  in the Mexican mining-town of-Pal-  ma Sola, in the Arery centre of the  gold and silver mining district  AA'hich English and "-American capital avivs. in process of exploiting. ''  In the course of time Simpson's  employer died, and Simpson continued the assay-office on his own  account, for he had learned the  business during his five years' apprenticeship, 'and'.-chemical knoAV-  ledge gained by him Avhile at Oxford also stood him in good-stead.  Besides which he had learned a  great deal about mines and mining,  and knew what AA'as ore and Avhat  was not. Also, in addition to his  aesay-office, he now had a small ore-  buying'agency and Avas, in fact,  making money hand OA'er list. ^  -Just about this time rumors gofc  afloat in Palma Sola that some pro-A  moterh had at last boomed the "Es-1  poran-Ki" gold prospect nearby on  . the Londonniarket; that one of the  biggest mine-broking concerns there  had been favorably impressed, in  fact, that the head of the concern, a  very rich man and member of parliament, AA'as himself on the A\-ay to  make a personal investigation <of  the mine. If it "panned out" as  represented, the Englishmen intended to buy it and erect costly  stamp-mills for working the ore,  AA'ith cyanide plants for treatment  of the tailings.  In due time the rich Englishman  arriA'ed, Simpson at once recogni/.-  ed in the puffy, pompous member  of parliament, Avho represented the  greatest combination of mining  capital in Great Britain, his old  chum_a_nd deadjy enemy, Jladleyj^  Benton. Needless to say the latter  did not recognizee in Simpson,, as-  saydr and ore-buyer, the Duncan-  Dudley of fifteen yeai-H agone.  That entire night Simpson spent  in fighting phantoms of the pafet,  memories of his lost and only love,  memories of home and f 1 iends, the  position and happiness Avhich might  luiAre been his but for his own folly  and his traitorous confidant, Had-  ley-Benton. It was a hard night  and a hard fight, but Simpson went  to his office exulting next morning  Avith plans fully thought out and  arranged. His enemy had al la-st  been placed in ..his poAver, and Mr.  Simpson proposed that there should  be a plentiful settling of old scores.  When Mr. Had ley-Ben ton and his,  large number of carefully sealed  samples from the "Esperan/.a"  reached Sim pson'b assay-office later  that week, the hitter person Avas  entirely and deferentially at the  disposal of the lordly capitalist, only  Simpson preferred���in fact, stipulated���that Had ley-Hen tou himself  should unseal the samples, with hib  own hands, and remain in the assaying office, so that the entire  process, from grinding the samples  down to the Aveighing of the gold  residue, could bo carefully witnessed  and oA-erlooked by him.  The final parting of the silver-  gold buttons Avas done with the  greatest possible care and slo\vne.-s.  And well that it was, for the results  given by each and every assay were  so exceedingly high that Mr. llad-  ley-Bentok might have been incredulous had he not Avatched the  process from first to last. There  were   fifteen different   assays on  w  (Us  ���_"?!'  m  fit.  CHAIRS (?)  Well, rather.

THE  TELEPHONE'S   USES.  Now Yoil. 1'iW,  It appears, from an examination  of_the correspondence Jbetwecn  secretary (.age and president Still-  man of the National City Bank concerning the recent ^ile of the custom-house, that the transaction  AA'as negotiated to a great extend  o\'er llie long-distance telephone.  President Stillman, in his letter  notifying the secretary of the  treasury that the stipulations of  the sale had been agreed to, refers  to the telephonic communication,  but gives little in formation as to  Avhat the substance of it was.  The leader of the correspondence  is merely left to infer thai the  National Cily Bank, iu the person  of Mr. Stillman, sat down at one  end of J.he Avire, and that the  treasurer of the United Slates, in  the person of scei clary Gage, sat  down at the other, and. amicably  and wiUfcfi-utorify arranged the  matter between them. Secretary  Gage's frank and full explanation  of all the 1 elation--of the treasury  department with Die National City  Bank and the voluminous Correspondence that accompanied it,  it Avas said today, did not contain  even an abstract of this conversation, Avhich Avould have been, perhaps, the most interesting contribution to the literature of the A\hole  question.  Attention AA'as called to this palpable omission, not for the purpose  of impugning the motiA'cs of the  two men chiefly concerned in this  important transaction, or of implying that the failure lo report to  tho senate a private and informal  coiiA'crsation indicates that there  AA'as anything to con_o._l, but for  the purpose of calling attention to  certain new developments of one of  the most commonly used 'devices of  the present political and business  world. The idea of a secretary of  the treasury arranging the details  of a $3,0.00,000 transaction OA'er the  long-distance telephones Avould have  struck..a previous- generation' Avith  dismay, but it is regarded as only  a typical, if a somewhat exaggerated, example of what is happening  eA'ery day.  The general public, very likely,  has no adequate comprehension, it  Avas added, of the innumerable business deals, Avhich must otherwise  have failed, that the telephone has  rushed through at the critical moment, of the important political results it has accomplished , AA'hen  every other means appeared to have  been tried and "abandoned, and of-  the* innumerable fortunes, of good  men and bad, it has made at the  eleventh'hour.    ,  Said a   business nian   today: "In  an age Avhen  the race  is  emphatically to the sAvift, when the making  or the breaking  of a fortune  or a  reputation  may  depend  on a moment's Avork, the use  of a medium  that practically admits of no delay  i�� especially desirable.   There was  a time Avhen the mails appeared to  guarantee suflicienl rapidity of action, and later Avhen the telegraph,  from this point of A'ieAV alone, AA'as  regarded as the chief, marvel.   Bui  today business  men  Avould  hardly  know Jioav to* get  along   with such  snail-like-methods.   These will'do  well enough, it is  said, when a man  is   not  in  an  esp'ecinl   hurry,  but  when it becomes a matter of .superseding some rival or taking  advantage of a rare business change, some  medium  is  demanded as rapid  as  thought itself.   There can  belittle  possible  delay, business -men -have  discovered, in tho u*o of  the  longdistance   telephone,    except    such  trifling annoyances as  "central'' is  responsible   for.      You  ring   your  bell, and yon ha\'0 your man.    Vou  do  not  htiA'o to   talk in short, concise sentences, as over tho telegraph  wire; you have Ihe chance  to  explain   yourself in  full,  lo  use the  gentle art of persuasion,and to  ask  questions-���For  Avhich  you  do   not  have to wait for a reply.   Yon have  all  the  opportunities of  a private  interview.  "There- are also some disadvantages of a pri\-ate interview that  do not annoy you in this method of  settling your all'airs/ It is a personal consultation, indeed, but of a  Aery impersonal kind. There are  great advantages in a face-to-face  cniiA'01-.atioii, but far more in a  meeting in which the two interlocutors do not JiiPefc. Things can be  ->.lid over the telephone that one  would never presume to s*iy to a  man's face - and, if they are of an  unpleasant kind, your friend has 110  effective way of getting angry tit  you. Moreover, in a worid which  has forgotten that there are such  things as piivato affairs, a tele  phone conversation i.s fairly secret,  "The danger of putting pen to  paper has long since been demonstrated���letters having a tiick of  making their appearance at very unionised for and unpropitinu__ times.  They also make the best sort oi'evi-  dence in the jury room. The same  is true in an equal dcgice of telegrams. But the long distance telephone seldom Icha-cs any tracks. It  i.s ti ue that a curious Ventral* may  overhear a thing or two or that the  ubiquitous .eavesdropper may ele-  A'ate the receiver at a -favorable  moment, but even these dangers  amount to little. If it becomes  necessary it is easy to proA'e that  that they did not hear aright; and  for that matter, if Avorse comes to  Avorse, it is not a difficult matter to  repudiate any thoughtless statement you yourself may haA'e made  OA'er the Avire. The cle\*erest hand-  Avriting expert in the Avorld could  not make out a living case against  you.  "There are other reasons Avhy  business men and politicians haA'e  found a steadfast friend iu the longdistance telephone. Another of its  great advantages OA'er a personal  intervieAA', for example, is the fact  that you can cut it off any time you  desire. This is a somewhat difficult  matter to arrange, it is generally  admitted, if you stand face to face  Avith your man. It is impossible  abruptly to pick up your hat and  bolt as soon as you see that things  are not going your Avay; but if you  are at the other end of the AA'ire, all  that is necessary is to quietly hang  up the receiver and go your way.  Accidents-of this sort are so common on the telephone, business men  say, that this can be done Avithout  causing the slightest comment, and  AMERICAN  AND  EUROPEAN  PLANS  MEALS  CENTB  ttOO-V-S MGJITKI) BY ELKCTI.TCITY  AND IIKATKl) nV'STKAM  2.1 CUNTS'TO ?1 '  321 to 331 Baker Street, Nelson.  pEirTHOTEL  BAKER STItKET.

"However, ifc i.s generally believed  that   the   main  reasons   Avli3r  the  long-distance telephone is so largely  dominating the AA'orld is the secrecy  and  promptness  it  insures.    That  there are evils in the system appears  to be generally believed.    It is just  one degree  more  secret  than  any  means  of communication  hitherto  discovered   by  man,  and    just  so  much more  dangerous.     Its  chief  evils, it is  alleged,  are  illustrated  rather in the political than in the  business world.    Ncav York has had  innumerable opportunities to  witness the evils of goA'ernment by the  long-distance telephone.    There can  be no  relief,  c\'en  in   sending  the  boss to-Washington ; for his A'oice,  if not'his bodily presence, is as emphatically in the state as before. It  only requires the extension   of the  system across the Atlantic .to  the  English race courses  to  make  the  baneful political effects of the longdistance    telephone     eA'en     more  poignant than they are." ��  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.
