Such is politics in a country town  in Ontario.  MINING AND MILLING AFFAIRS  HIS HOLINESS PLEASED AND SENT SPECIAL BLESSINGS  I.isliop Dontenwill of Now We.st-  1 minister entertained the  eongrcga-  i inn of the church of Mary Immaeu-  /  I.ite last night with an interesting  ivcital of his experiences   in Rome  during the summer  when   he   had  the honor of seeing and conversing  jf . with pope Leo X1I1 and presenting  his holiness with a souvenir of   the  city of Nelson.    The narrative is of  considerable interest.    It   may be  stated.that the idea of  introducing  the eity of Nelson to the  attention  - of the great Roman  Catholic   pon-  tiff and of impressing the  name on  his mind by means   of   a   souvenir  spoon emanated from the   mind of  Rev. father Ferland, -oho takes 0as  keen an interest in the ' growth   of  the eitj'' as any business man in the  place.  Bishop Dontenwill prefaced his  experiences in Rome by recounting  his impressions of Loretto iu northern Italy, a point famous  ' throughout Roman Catholicism be-  , cause of the priceless relics to be  .-een there. At Loretto is a. stone  house   or   cottage   in  which it  is  asserted the Virgin Mary sat when  die angel visited her and informed  her that she would become the  mother of Christ. Tradition lias it  that the building was removed bodily through the agency of angels  and   deposited   in Thrace.   After-  .,.wards it was carried across the  Adriatic sea and deposited in Lor-  utto. The person who owned the  "ground .on which the building was  placed became jealous, and as a re-^  suit the building was"* miraculously"  ''removed further up the 'mountain;  where it stands to this day intact.  Among the relics kept within are  the pewter plate and spoon  which  . the traditions of the church state  the Virgin Mary used to feed the  infant-Jesus, together with other  articles rendered sacred by the  touch of the_ViFgih. The cottage  is constructed of small rough  stones cemented together, and the  belief is that if one of these stones  is removed the person guilty of the  sacrilege is smitten with a terrible  illness. This happened to a bishop  on one occasion, and the dignitary  did not recover from the sickness  until the stone was returned and  replaced in the wall. All the projecting corners of the stones"*are  worn smooth through being touched  by countless visitors in the course  of centuries. In one corner of the  cottage is an altar, at which bishop  Dontenwill had the honor of saying  "massT^i n~ "the-" cou rse of "winch- lie"  asked a blessing for the Catholics  of Nelson.  The most interesting stage of the  trip was reached however, when  his lordship arrived at Rome in  May last. He tonched briefly on  the usurpation of the eternal city  by the Italian kings, but remarked  that the central personage iu Rome  today was not the king, but the  pope. To such an extent did this  sentiment prevail that when the  ill-fated monarch. Humbert I, drove  through the streets of the holy city  he was ignored by the majority of  those on the sidewalks, only the  persons connected with the court in  some way saluting him. On arriving in Rome, bishop Dontenwill applied for an audience with the pope  and succeeded in securingan engagement three weeks later, in which  he considered himself fortunate, as  there   were   no   fewer   than    230  . bishops there at the same time. In  the meantime he saw the pope receive pilgrims in St. Peters church,  a ceremony which once witnessed  is never; forgotten. On this occasion 30,000 people had gathered in  the central nave of the great  cathedral. These had first passed  through the hands of a couple hundred soldiers posted at the doors to  prevent confusion, and on entering  were allotted to particular sections  of the church by tickets. The  building was divided by strong  temporary fences into .spaces  oach holding about 1000 persons,  all these unusual precautions being  necessary to handle the great  crowds assembling on fete days.  The pope made hisappearanceabout  J. 1:30 o'clock, clad in a   white  cas-  An Election Incident.;;  The election in Ontario was'hotly  contested, and now that it is over,  some of the incidents occurring are  amusing, but they go to show the  intensity of feeling that existed.  In a little town in Card well, a  young Liberal came homo from  Toronto to vote, and was challenged  by his family's physician as to age,  the doctor presuming that he knew  the very day and date on which the  young but ardent Liberal made his  first appearance on a: certain farm  on the 5th line in the township of  Caledon. Hot words passed, the  doctor so far forgetting himself as  to call the young man a liar. The  young Liberal immediately called  him down and yanked him off to  the office of the local justice of the  peace, where he acknowledged that  he (the doctor) was in the wrong,  and an ample apology was then and  there made. In the same village, a  young Conservative came home to  vote; but he was challenged on  age, and when the family Bible was  looked into, it was found that he  was born on the 13th day of  November, 1870. He was too young  by six days. An old-timer in that  country, who has been voting  Liberal tickets and reading Toronto  Globes for fifty-six years to a day,  sock and borne shoulder   high   by  the   six   stalwart bearers   in   red  gowns.   As the procession   moved  out of the little chapel at the  side  of the big building,  the  spectators  burst into cheering.    "Hail  to   the  pope!"    "Long live the pope!"   and  other exclamations   rang   through  the cathedral  in   great   waves   of  sound.   The pope seemed   pleased,  smiling from side to side and   raising his hand in blessing on the con-  caurse.     As   the   procession   progressed, the enthusiasm grew until  the   scene   became    indescribable.  Finally the pope reached the   altar  and the service   began,' while   the  noise was hushed until the   silence  became almost   painful   after   the  preceding noise.   The Holy Father  sings   the   benediction   and    pronounces the papal blessing  on  the  four cornel's of the earth, then   receives the representatives "of   the  various pilgrimages pi-esent and accords them special favors as a reward  for  their trouble in  taking  what are usually long journeys. By  this   time   the   pope   is    wearied,  which is not remarkable in view of  his 91 years, and the procession is  formed to  leave the  church.    The  departure elicits a repetition of the  scene whicli  greeted the pontiff's  entrance aud concludes  the ceremony. '  The three weeks of waiting having    expired,    bishop    Dontenwill  made his way to the Vatican, the  pontifical   palace, with  its   12,000  rooms and 1000 persons residing beneath one roof.   He made his,way  through the .various: anterooms to  the audience chamber, where- ceremony   prescribes   the    visitor    to  genu flex three times and kiss the  toe   of   the   pontiff's - slipper,   on  which a cross is emblazoned.    This,  the speaker was careful to point  out, was no indignity, as he saluted  the representative of   Christ and  not the man.   The pope received  him graciously and seemed eager to  learn of the scenery, resources and  condition of the Catholic church in  British Columbia.   In stating the  facts     relating     to   his    diocese,  bishop      Dontenwill      took      occasion    to    present    his    holiness  with the Nelson souvenir spoon embossed with the   church   of   Mary  Immaculate.   The gift was accepted  Avith smiles, examined  with   interest and placed on a little   table   at  the pope's   left,   after   which   the  bishop did not know what became  of   it.      In   concluding   the   bishop    told     the    audience     pope  Leo   sent   a   special    message   to  the-Catholics   of- Nelson^    saying"  "Tell the people to be steadfast and  fervent in their faith.    Urge them  not to be ashamed of their religion:  it is their niostimportant treasure."  The pontiff also authorized bishop  Dontenwill to bestow in his   name  a special benediction on the Catholics of Nelson which was   done   at  the close of last night's service.  The Tribune Has Circulation.  Tub Tribune is considered the  best advertising medium in Kootenay, and the reason for it is: It lias  circulation. Less than ten days  ago a subscription was started to  aid John Sein, the newsboy who  lost a leg in a railroad accident  near Nelson. Last night the mail  from the south brought the following letter:  San Francisco, November 9.���To  the Editor of The Tribune:- We are  informed that you are kindly starting   a   subscription   in  behalf of  John Sein, a newsboy who has in  the past sold The Tribune.   If, as  we understand it, you are seeing to  the subscription and the purchase  of the artificial limb personally, we  will be pleased to contribute $10  towards the price of the same, providing the artificial  limbs we manufacture please you.    We have had  the pleasure of working in conjunction with the Examiner of this city  on several like cases, and will be  pleased to refer you to them as regards the satisfaction given by the  appliances.    For references nearer  home, we would respectfully refer  you  to W. D. Hauser, Barkerville,  or J. W. Lambert, M. D., Kamloops.  Respectfully,  Chicago Artificial Lima Co.  By W. D. Senner, Sec.

FINANCE MINISTER  TURNER  TO  DROP DOWN AND OUT  In Order to Allow a Vancouver Man  To Be Taken Into the Duns-  muir Cabinet.  .Vancou v E R, November-13.���[S pe-  cial to The Tribune].���It is understood here that Hon. J. II. Turner,  minister of finance, is about to resign his portfolio and go to London  as agent-general, the change to  take phace in about a month.  Speculation is rife concerning the  result of the cabinet changes, it  being understood that mayor Garden may withdraw as the Conservative candidate in Burrard to become a provincial minister. It is  reported that Garden is to take  Wells' place, and that Wells will  either be let out or transferred to  the finance department. If Wells  is let out Prentice is to be made  finance minister and Tatlow or  Price Ellison provincial secretary.  The Dunsmuir government, as at  present constituted, has but one  Liberal member, and it is well  known~that~ the-attorney^geheral  and the minister of mines are dead  set on having a party-line government, both being pronounced Conservatives. By taking in either  Garden, or Tatlow, and ignoring  Ellison and Fulton, premier Dunsmuir is not strengthening his government in the interior, which  today has nearly half the voting  strength of the province.  The  first shipment of the new  .plant for the Silver King arrived in  Nelson yesterday,'and captain J. R.  Gifford came   down .yesterday to  hurry the machinery, up the . hill.  The   apparatus included a smoke  stack, a boiler, and  a, pump.   The  stack is, 500 feet long, and is to connect the -'underground boiler with  the surface.    Tlie   boiler   will   be  utilized to generate-power for the  engine on the lower levels,'and the  pump is to'* raise "water from the  tenth to the fifth level, from which  it is discharged.   The pump will  lift GOO gallons of water per minute  for  500 feet.   The, boiler ,will   be  taken up to the min'e,,firstj and, as  it weighs six tons the undertaking  is of no small magnitude.   Seven  teams of horses will-be employed  for several days in^tlie operation.

Alvord,  jr., late note teller in the First National Bank, who is charged with  having embezzled $690,000 from  that institution, was continued today before United States commissioner Sholtz. Morton V. Moore,  settling clerk at the First National  Bank, said that he had made up  the clearing house proof sheet on  October 5, but that the first two  figures of the total were not his  own. The total for that day. the  witness said, was $780,705, but a  "4" and a "7"' had been written  over the figures *!7" and "S" and' a  "1" added, making the total appear  to be $1,470,705, a- difference of  $690,000. Later on Moore said the  figure "1" was scratched over and  the figures "7" and "8" restored in  another hand-writing. At this  point assistant United States district attorney declared the case for  the government closed and the examination was adjourned till Friday next.    Decrease in Shipping.

Choate, the United St.ates ambassador to Great Britain, this  evening delivered an inaugural  lecture at the philosophical institution at Edinburgh, taking as his  theme, "The career and character  of Abraham Lincoln."  Lord Rosebery, who presided, introduced Mr. Choate as follows:  "Mr. Choate is one of that choice  ��� succession of men whom the United  States.have sent to this country.  He has endeared himself to us in a  remarkable degree by his brilliant  and genial qualities. For his discourse he has selected one of the,  most interesting subjects within  the range of possibility, the great  man whom I personally knew in  the flesh, Abraham.Lincoln." Many  notable persons were in the audience and Mr. Choate was frequently  applauded; :   Lord Rosebery, replying to a  vote of thanks for presiding, said:  "Lincoln was one of the great figures of the nineteenth century. To  me it has also seemed that he was  the second founder of the great republic. His strength rested on two  rocks, -unflinching principle and  illimitable common sense. One distinguished feature that disassociated him from all tho other great  men of history was his immense  fund of humor."  Thanking Mr. Choate on behalf  of the audience, Lord Roseberry referred to him as the consummate  master of eloquence, and concluded  with an interesting personal reference to the vivid impression and  intense interest which the American civil war produced in his case  at tho most impressionable moment  of his life. "So anxiously did I and  ray fellow students at Eton study  the details of the war," said lord  Rosebery, "that we seemed to  hear the very clash of conflict  across the Atlantic, and as soon as  I had sufficient liberty and funds I  crossed-the Atlantic to try to become acquainted with some of the  places and men. illustrious in that  war. I saw Grant, Sherman, Jefferson Davis and many others, and  even after this lapse of years everything seems as familiar to mo now  as then."  Winter on in the Northwest.  Lacrosse, Wisconsin, November  13.���A drop of 25 degrees in temperature occurred here today. The  thermometer registered 20 degrees  above zero. A heavy fall of snow  is general throughout this section  of the northwest,  The official announcement of the  new   timecard   which   the   Great  Northern  is   to bring into effect  shortly between Kaslo aud Spokane  has   not   been   issued,   but -it   is  understood that the schedule has  been prepared and  will be issued  this week. Under the new arrangement this city will be off the main  line   between   Spokane   and   the  Crow's Nest road, but the C. P. K.  boats which formerly handled this  business  will   be the only losers.  The Great Northern will run a fast  line over their road from Spokane  to the "junction with the Nelson &  Fort Sheppard road from  where it  will go , to Kuskonook.     Here  the  new steamer Kaslo will meet the  train   and   handle passengers   for  Kaslo and Nelson."   She connects at  PilotBay with the International and  transfers the Nelson business.   The  passenger train   now   running on  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard out of  Nelson will be withdrawn and a  mixed substituted.   The company  will endeavor to handle" most of its  Spokane business out of Nelson via  Kuskonook, and for this purpose'  the    steamer    International    will  leave here each morning to connect  with the Kaslo at Pilot Bay, the  latter connecting with the morning  train for .Spokane at Kuskonook.,  11 is stated that the officials have  figured out the time so that the.  trip from Nelson to Spokane can 6e'  made, in as quick time as' is now  occupied by the shorter - route.ove'r  ,tii"e Arelsq'ri & Fort'- Sheppard.-road,-,  and the advantage of better "roadbed and more comfortable travel is  attained.        ______'  Around the Depot.  The C. P. R. yard improvements  are beginning to take shape. Contractor Hepburn has the passenger  depot well advanced, the shingling  being under way. The joists are  now being laid for the freight sheds,  and a week hence the building will  be almost ready for the roof. Three  cars of material were delivered on  the ground yesterday, and the  building will be rushed ahead while  good weather lasts. North of the  tracks the engine house has been  painted, and the company has  started work on the construction of  the coal packets.

And is it  not annoying to.hear reports that  paid officials of the mines department  of the provincial government cannot  seeor reportany thing that is encoiu-  .aging in a mining way, either in  tho Boundary country or anywhere  pl.se in the province?  Tub. TRJi"i"NHnis in receipt of a  letter from a prominent Conservative, of Rossland in which the editor of tlie Miner of that town is  held up to ridicule. Tho letter is  well written and to the point, and  had it referred- to the newspaper,  and not to the man that writes the  newspaper, it would have been  printed in Tin. Tribuni.. The/editor of the Rossland Miner is a private citizen, and cannot bo attacked  through tho columns of this high-  class mining and family newspaper  because lie sometimes makes a fool  of himself when playing at the  game of polities.  Till-*   rumored   changes    in    the  Diuismuir.   government   m.ay   not  moan anything.    Mr. Turner would,  no doubt, owing to reasons more or  less personal, rather be agent-general in London  than  finance minister ; but it is well known that  premier  Diuismuir has   confidence  in   and   a strong personal, liking  for his finance minister, more so,  probably, than for any of his other  ministers.    There is also said to be  a little friction in the.cabinet.     If  Mr. Turner has decided  to withdraw and take .the appointment of  agent-general before the next sitting, of   the   legislature,   premier  Dunsmuir had better make, a clean  sweep of his present colleagues, and  surround   himself with   men who  represent voters who have a stake  in the country,  WRITTEN   BY   LABORERS.

The Tritiunk has placed a part of one column  at the disposal of the Independent Laborers,  whose views will bo expressed therein from  time to time during the campaign. A like pri  vilege is accorded lhe Conservatives and the  Liberals. ,        Now that the. great strain.of the.  Dominion"elections is oyer, and the  Liberals have gained a decided majority, workingmen are putting the  questions, "Why does such a powerful party of politicians wish to  monopolize all the; parliamentary  prestige, and why. are the workers,  the vast majority of the voters,  contemptuously refused, the.insignificant share which they desire in  the representation of the country?  The fact that Chris Foley, the labor  .candidate of the Kootenayminers  and. ranchers being elected could"  not "possibly detract from ,or diminish the balance of power which is  apparently so very one sided.  Surely, it would bo a graceful act  on the part of tho leaders to call off  their candidate and allow tho toilers to enjoy their political aspirations on this particular occasion.  It would no doubt create such.a  warm feeling of gratitude in the  hearts of our electors that the  numerous political party shuffles  would be entirely eradicated from  their minds and they would become  intensely liberal in all measures for  their own benefit. As this proposition will probably not be acted  upon, it behooves every working-  man to make the most strenuous  efforts to secure the election of. the,  popular candidate.  The polling places in J.he vast  district of Yale-Cariboo cannot  easily be; visited, but' no doubt  many workers have friends and  relatives working iu these outlying  localities, aud it would give an impetus to the probability of election  if yon wore to write to them and  request them to use "their best  energies in securing the triumphal  return of onr chosen representative.  Although a miner, he.gained wise  discretionary flowers with his years  of experience and is eminently  fitted to occupy the position we are  anxious for him to fill. It is of no  use for us to dwell with satisfap-  tion upon tho airy promises of support that shower in from all  quarter.-', we must not cease.to ox-  .creise tho greatest vigilance and to  exert ourselves to tlie utmost to obtain our wish. Our opponents are  straining every nerve and devoting  all their energies to defeat our aim,  but if the workers will only stand  unitedly they are bound to succeed.  Now, fellow toilers, fight the good  fight, use every endeavor possible  and you arc bound to succeed.

Party.in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  We, the delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, in convention assembled, reaffirm the principles of the  .party, and more- particularly that cardinal principle, protection to home  industries, and.that that principle be carried out so that all sections of ���  the country shall equally share its benefits.  The. one industry on -which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly,dependent in mining; and we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, wo. advocate that the duties on lead  ^and^lead^jroduet!j^bi-uncreag.ed,_so_that-they_sliaU.beLasjijgh as those now  imposed by the United .States on the same articles".  That the output of the precious metal, mines is largely; increasing,  therefore we favor the establishment of a'mint, so that the, specie in circulation shall-bo-that of our own instead of that of a foreign.country.  We advocate the res.trictiqn of the immigration of Chinese aud Japanese, and all classes who ran not become good citizens of, the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest tlio adoption of the principles ;of the Natal Act.  British .Columbia'has not.now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled   to: therefore we advocate that when the-  redistribution.of.seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.    That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave tho field of provincial politics to take-  part iu the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.

Here  is   oertflinly  the  moat  remarkable case of its kind on recocd.  ;:/' A deserted wife pursues a runaway  husband and his paramour   from  .'.Texas to Alaska, and is meanwhile  herself    pursued    by   a   doteefcive  '.���'whose mission it is to inform her  | MthaL she has just  fallen  heir to a  fortune.,  Ifc is a story with much bad luck  (ni one side of the scales, and much  good luck on tho other side; enough  ���fjood luck to outweigh the bad and  make life onco more worth living  for the heroine. For, of course,  there's a woman at the bottom of  this story.  She" is ii handsome woman, buxom  and brown-eyed.  Four years ago she was tlie belle  of Brownwood, in Brown county,  Texas.- JTer .mine is Mrs. Claude  Staton. Before marrying Mr. Sta-  ton for better or for worse, and  linding it was for worse, she was  merry May Blocker.  Merry May Blocker's bright eyes  and saucy smile set men's hearts  thumping against their ribs-whenever she dashed by them on the  horse that she delighted in riding,  for she was not only, the handsomest girl in Brown county-���she  was the most graceful and daring  equestrienne, as well. Indeed, it  was said' that no woman in all the  - Lone Star state equaled her in-.that  accomplishment. She had a comfortable home, indulgent parents  and "admirers*' innumerable." -But-  when the time came for her to  choose among them that' she might  "marry and settle down" in the  . good old:fashioned way that prevails from, Texas to t'other side of  the world.' she did what many an  otherwise sensible young girl has  done���she went through the woods  to pick up the crookedest stick she  could find there.  Claude Staton' was the crooked  stick.  The first proof that pretty May.  Staton had of her husband's twisted  ideas of morality���and a wife  doesn't need better proof, surely���  was when he disappeared one fine  day with $10,000 of her money that  he had deliberately stolen from her;  but that was not all that this  crooked stick did after he had been  picked up in the Texas woods by  merry May Blocker. Ho took a  . companion with him ��� another  Brownwood girl. Crooked sticks  ^have~ve*7^f0okM"waysyT  Then began the most sensational  chase, with the most singular ending, on record.  May Staton did not sit in grief at.  home and cry her big brown, eyes  out because her Claude had proved  his perfidy. Neither did. she rave  iif anger and tear her hair as the  ladies in melodrama do when . thus  humiliated ������ and openly insulted.  She hurriedly tossed some things.  into a grip and started iii pursuit  of the guilty-pair.  Ifc was not that she still loved tlio  crooked stick and wanted to separate him from his second choice tf  Brownwood belles.  It was not that sho wanted to  plead with him, or reform him, or  take him back again.  Jt was because she wanted the  satisfaction of facing the culprits  .and meting out some form of punishment to tho man that she trailed  ,him and his companion for thousands and thousands of miles.  Sometimes she was almost upon  thenv. Again and again she thought  that?another hour would surely  bring the trio face to face.  Again and again they vanished  into the thin air, of the distance.  All this time she was a prey to  incessant nervousness lest she lose  all trace of the escaping couple. Her  nerves were keyed to the highest  pitch of excitement.  It is exhausting work trying to  catch up with crooked sticks that  seem to have taken unto themselves wings. It hushed the  laughter in merry May's voice. It  brought tine lines of anxiety into  her face. Ifc sent pallor into her  cheeks where roses once bloomed.

Tlie runaways managed to  escape her at St. Michael's and took  an up-river boat at once for Circle  City. By this movo they thought  they had successfully eluded the indignant wife, but they were mistaken. So sure were they, however, that Staton bought out; a  small stor$ and started in business  for himself on a part of the stolen  $10,000.  Airs. Staton reached Dawson a  second time, still cheated of her  quest. Nothing daunted, she  secured a boat and made her way  alone to Circle City.  Her journey was accomplished.  She walked unannounced into  Sfcaton's store, to Sfcaton's intense  alarm, for in her right hand was a  revolver, and before he had time to  beg for mercy she discharged the  weapon.  Few women are good shots, even  when their nerves are steady. Mrs.  Staton is one of the few, but the  months of continuous travel and  excitement liad told heavily upon  her. Her hand trembled���as- indeed, whose hand would not under  such thrilling circumstances? The  ;shot failed of its mark and buried  itself harmlessly in the wall.  Tlied, being'a woman, she did the  expected thing. She threw down  the revolver, walked out of the  store and took the next boat to  Dawson.  - She realized that crooked sticks  are not worth the time, trouble and  money that it costs to run them to  cover.  She arrived in Dawson tired, disgusted, discouraged.  "I am the most unlucky woman  in Alaska," she said to herself, but  the words had scarcely left her lips  when she almost ran into the arms  of a detective who was as glad to  find her as she Avas astonished to  see him when he informed her of  hi9 profession and added that .he  had. chased her every foot of the  way she had travelled since leaving Texas.

John IL Nolan, acting guard at  the provincial jail, and a few prisoners confined in the institution  have the secret of a placer claim  which might turn out to be profitable on a small scale if properly  worked. Nolan had a party of  prisoners out yesterday digging  postholes for the -ten-foot fence  being constructed about the gov-;  eminent property, and in excavating one of the holes an interesting  discovery was made.   The hole was  sunk to the gravel bed forming the  old bed of Ward creek and a couple  of small springs were uncovered.  The water rising from the spring  had made two neat circular piles of  black sand, which. immediately  attracted the attention of Adolph  Hymau,. an old and experienced  placer miner, who is doing a short  term in the jail. Hymau found the  sand full of small grains of coarse  gold, This led him to pan out a  shovelful of the gravel. The shovel  was used as a pan and the springs  furnished water. After a few minutes' work Hyman had 300 to 400  colors of fine gold in his shovel.
