 i>  KOOTENAY  rlas Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can be Made  Dividend Paying Mines.  DAILY   EDITION:  FIRST YEAR-NO. 28.  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1899  KOOTENAY  Has   a   Mineral   Output   of  Upwards   ot   One,  Million    Dollars    Every    Month  In   The  Year  WEEKLY   EDITION:  SEVENTH YEAR-NO  9.  I  v  ,-t  r.  ,t  ,'r  V  A  [I ���  -��'  I ft  V,.  l  &_  M '<  THE MINES AND SHELTERS  A Lardo.Duncan Company.  The report of J. M. Anderson, Kootenay  manager, to the executive committee of  the Gold  Hills  Exploration   & Development Company, of operations of the season of 1S9S in the Duucan-Lardo district,  lias  beeu  received  at   Kaslo and   forms  very interesting reading.   The company  owns in all 49 mineral  locations.     The  assessment work of 20 of these was done,  by permission, on trails giving easier access  to the properties ; on fourteen the  assessment was done in actual mining.  Eleven were relocated, and one or two of  the claims were abandoned.   Seven new  claims were located  during the last season,     making      the     total      holdings  of     the     company     at      the    present  time 52.   The Howser  townsite also   belongs to the company.   It is situated on  Howser "creek, about one mile from its  mouth, and inclusive of Howser falls, in  the centre, forms'in'Mr. Anderson's opinion, one of the most valuable assets of the  company.   It is on the line of the extension of the Kaslo & Slocan railway, which  cuts one corner of the site.   Mr. Anderson  sums up the advantages of the Duncan-  Lardo    district    over   other   camps   iu  Kootenay in n  somewhat glowing form.  They are good   transportation   facilities  by water, which will prevent exorbitant  railway   rates;   easy grades for railway  construction; unlimited water powers for  concentrators and  other machine work;  locations   withiu   easy   reach of valleys  where main highways are located; timber  in sufficiently large quantities for all purpose-; and the comparatively few snow-  slides.  Under the heads of treatment, miuing  and supplies, a great deal of information  is given to the company, and goes to show  that Mr. Anderson has made a close study  of the country in which he has been operating, and of the advantages likely to  accrue from proper development.  : The Alice Mine Changes Owners.  The George Alexander syndicate has  purchased the Alice mine on Goat river,  the first location -made in that section.  About 400 feet of work has been done ou  the Alice, the lowest workings being 90  feet from the surface.' There'- is considerable ore on the dump and iu sight.' ,The  ore is galena and is of fairly good grade.  Two of the owners (Jap King and Ben  Anderson) sell their "entire interests, the  other owner (captain Hay ward) retains  his interest (one-fourth). - The price paid  is not given. ������         The Tax on Output of Mines."  It appears from a return produced in  ./.the house by the minister of finance, iu  response to a'question-asked by MacPher-  son of Vancouver, .that -the amount of  taxes collected on minerals since the act  camp into force in 1897 amounts to a total  of $77,000. The mineral thus taxed comes  from mines iu Ainsworth. Trail, Nelson,  Slocan-and Goat River mining divisions of  West Kootenay.   Will-Ship to Hall Mines Smelter.  The Queen Bess Mining Company's contract for the shipment of its output to the  Everett smelter-will expire in the course  of a few days, when the arrangement for  tJieVshipmerit o% flie entire olutir|ut to .the  Hall Mines: smelter swill- go into effect.  The mine is uow^shipping abotyt JjlOO tbng_  =per"raont;n^bu^  for the mining of the sattie which are expected, the output vyilt be considerably  increased^ The present arrangement with  the Hall Mines calls for the delivery of  the entire output for the next 'three  months. ' _  Bought an Interest.  A circular has been issued in London,  England, to the sharehoulders of the  West Australian Gold Fields Company in  \Vhieh the directors State tliafc they have  just-completed the purchase oh vei*y favorable terms of a one-fourth interest in  the Ymir gold mines, while the right of  taking a further one-quarter share on the  same terms within a period of three  months from the starting of the mill has  also been secured.  every reason to believe that in this instance the press is ahead of the people,  and in the opinion of Mr. Bostock there  will l)e no radical reform in the senate  until the people are ready for it.  Mr. Bo��toek will return to this city in  time to speak at the public meeting which  has been called for Monday evening in  the Hume hotel.  BILL p TO   AMEND   THE   HEALTH   ACT.  X  Hewitt Bostock Interviewed.  Hewitt Bostock left this morning for  Yihir, where he goes to ascertain the requirements of the residents of that portion of his constituency. To a;. Trihunb  representative this morning Mr. Bostock  admitted that, the interval between the  sessions of parliament was not sufficiently  lengthy to enable him to visit the whole  of his constituency, even though he kept  oh the road the whole of the time. Naturally he considers the district too large,  but when asked if he thought it would be  subdivided he merely replied that he  would do what he could to secure such a  division.  _ Mr.  Bostock does not think  that the  ?.nluler Pr����ramme for senate reform  will be pushed very strongly during the  approaching session. He considers that  before any successful attempt can be  made to reform the senate the conviction  must be forced upon the people that there  is some necessity for such reform. As  matters stand at present he says that  there is a considerable number of people  in the dominion who do not know that  they have a senate, there is a still larger  number who know that there is an upper  chamber, and who think that it is working well enough to let it alone. The matter of senate reform has received much  attention from  the  press, but there    i  12i Section 36 of said chapter is hereby  amended by striking out the words "for  the provincial board, subject to the consent and approval of the lieutenant-governor in council," in the 4th, 5th and 0th  lines thereof. r->  13. Section 59 pf said chapter is hereby  amended by striking out all the words in  sub-section (1) thereof, after the word  ''same" in the lO'fch line thereof.  Queen's Victoria's Real Name.  The queen's legal name, were she to become a simple commoner, would be "Mrs.  Wettin," by virtue of her marriage with  prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha,  whose name, stripped of territorial and  other garnishings, was plain "Albert  Wettin." Wettin is the patronymic of  king Leopold of Belgium, of king Albert  of Saxony, of prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria,  of the dukepf Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, of the  duke of Saxe-Weimar, of the duke of  Saxe-Meiningen, as well as of the prince  of Wales and his brothers, and of prince  Charles of Portugal. Wettin, who died  iu 1150. was a descendant of one Witti-  kihd, who was a contemporary of the  great Charlemagne. The majority  of the reigning princes of Europe  claim to be descended from Wittikind,  among them being king Christian of Denmark, king George of Greece, Peter grand  duke of Oldenburg, and the czar of Russia.  The patronymic of these four rulers is  Oldenburg, the emneror of Russia being  neither a Romanoff nor yet a Holstein-  Gottor, as has been stated. The queen,  prior to her marriage, was entitled to the  patronymic of Azon���she was Miss Axon,  in fact. Of the same name are the reigning prince Liechtenstein and the duke of  Cumberland, or king of Saxe-Coburg-  Gotha, as he is now. The founder of the  house of Azpn died in the year 9(51, and  was Margrave or marquis of Este. It is  for this reason that the royal house of  Great Britain has sometimes made use of  the name d'Este, notably in the case of  the duke of Sussex, a younger son of king  George III, who gave the name of d'Este,  after marriage, to his morganatic wife..-  Introduced by Dr. McKechnle, President of the  Council.

Mr. Turner has not been an offensive partisan in the present contest,   notwithstanding the charges of The  :''���'���..       ���.''���������-       '���   ij':������".��� ..       . ���''*���' -  Miner and The Economist.    These charges are made  to discredit  an official who is filling an important office, in the hope that it will  cause prospectors and miners to vote against the government who  appointed   him.        The  government  overlooked  the failings   of  Mr.   Turner's predecessor in office for months,   and they merely  performed a duty they owed the people, when  they asked for his  resignation.    Even if the charges made against gold commissioner :  Turner were true, is  he the  only  provincial   official   stationed at  Nelson who is taking an active part in the present contest?    How  about mining recorder Tolmie ?    Has he not been  an active   political agent ever since first coming to Nelson from Victoria ?    Was  he not, to all intents and  purposes,   A.   S.   Farwell's   sponsor in  July last, and is he not candidate Farwell's strongest  aide  in the  present campaign ?  ^_-S-S&&_-_-_-fr&&&e-&--e-��---'&--S:--S-&S'��-S-e-5S: -S'*****'*******************.**^*  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  <l>  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  tnents, one for dry goods and tho other  tor groceries ami liquors-', with general  and private offices at the rear.

The Kootenay hotel is supplying the  bulk of the passenger traffic on Kootenay  lake at present. On her last trip, the  steamer Moyie carried SO passengers from  this hotel, and 75 more are awaiting the  next trip.  The Kootenaiart of Kaslo has not improved under the new management. It  continues to be asinine.  A chimney fire at a house on East Baker street gave the members of the fire brigade a run this morning about 3 o'clock.  Last night was the coldest of the year,  the thermometer dropping to seven degrees below zero. This is two degrees-  lower than any previous reading given by  A. H. Holdich^   A Storyette.  The Rev. Ottiwell Wood, a celebrated  English preacher, had to appear as a witness in a North Country assize court, and  was asked and gave his name in due  course. "What?" asked the judge, peevishly, being rather deaf. Mr. Wood repeated his answer. "Can't hear you;  spell it out," snapped the judge. "O,  double t, i, double u, e, double I, double n,  double o, d." The judge threw down his  pen in despair. This is even a more remarkable name than that of the late Admiral W. W.

The Hungarian aristocracy have the  largest estates of any nobility in Europe.  =The=manner^Ot���living^of=thesengi'5;'Tde=  seigneurs is Strongly patriarchal. Their  cpiinfcry chateaux are comfortable but tin-  pretentions, and are lordly in nothing but  the hospitality of their owners. The  stranger and the native are alike made  welcome withiu the doors of these old  manor-housesj and invited to sit'down, at  table like friends of the family. If a  stranger drives up to the entrance door pf  an Hungarian chateau, immediately and  before any questions are asked concerning the visitor's business, before the  master of the house has made  his appearance, a legion pf servants rush  forward and carry the visitor's baggage  to one of the Ji'alf-ddzen rooms always  ready to receive guests, invited or otherwise. When the Hungarians wish particularly to honor a guest, lo or 20 courses  are served at dinner; but as the Magyars  have in everything the utmost respect for  individual liberty, no guest is ever pressed  to eat or drink. "You are at home; do as  you would at home," says the master of  the house, as he greets you on your  arrival. Living a.s they do, away  from court and court life, these j  proud Magyar aristocrats ask nothing !  and expect nothing from the sovereigu,  and maintain in consequence their pride,  dignity and independence of character!  With broad ideas and liberal instincts  they iiave nothing in common with the i  narrow-minded, petty, and egotistical |  German aristocrats. They belong, in great  majority, to the Liberal party now in  power, and are loyal to the emperor  Francis Joseph and the house of Haps-'  burg. -   The Hudson's Bay Block.  N. F.

"I won't vote for any government of  which Joe Martin is a member," said a  prominent Orangeman last night in the  office of the Hume hotel. A friend standing near, who had known the p. o. in the  east, reminded him thatatthe last Dominion general election, he voted with the  Liberal party on account of the Conservative's party's opposition to Joseph Martin's Manitoba School Act, and at that  time he was a great admirer of the attorney-general.           The local Liberal association gave  Hewitt Bostock, M. P., a reception last  night, and "intelligence was depicted on  the countenance of every man there " is  the way a stalwart Grit put it today  when trying to convince the writer that  the Grits were'a. power in the laud.  Up to the hour that The Tiinjuxj. went  to press this afternoon Hugh R. Cameron  was still reported'as supporting' the can  didatur.e of A. S. Farwell.  The managers of standing-caudidate  Farwell's campaign are banking a great  deal on the vote ot the Hall Mines' employees at the Silver King miue. In the  last contest there were but 20 votes cast,  of which J. Fred Hume received 7. This  time there are" not more "than 25 voters  employed around the mine, so that if the,  increase represented hone but Farwell  Voters, there could not be much change  in the general result.  - .To list of provincial governmentofficials  "who are showing active partisanship'in'  the present election contest may.be added  George Holbrook, public L executioner.-  Like most of the clerks in the mining re-,  corder's office he is an active Farwell  worker.     ��� .  Candidate Farwell's campaign committee are lightning calculators. . Last night  they calculated their candidate's majority  in Nelson at 72.  The City Clerk to be Bounced.  There is likely to be trouble at the next  meeting of the city council. At the previous meeting a ballot was taken for the  purpose of filling the position of assistant  city clerk. Among the applicants were  Murdoch McKay and W. E. Wasson. On  the first ballot Wasson received four  votes to three for MaKay, and as four represented a majority of the council,  =mayor���Neelands��� declared-Wasson np~  pointed and the salary was fixed at $75  per month.  After the council meeting it came out  that some of the aldermen had not voted  in the manner in which their talk indicated. It was also reported that it had  bqeh prearranged that the position should  go tp McKay, and thatthe salary should  be $100 per month, the failure pf some of  the aldermen to ..vote lis they talked prevented those who made the contract from  delivering the goods.  As soon as McKay gets the-run of the  office, city-Clerk Strachan is to be let out.  It is now 'said that one of the Wasson  voters has been talked over to the side of  McKay, and that the question will be reopened at Monday evening's session of  the city council, when a motion wjll be  made to reconsider the council's action at  the previous meeting.  New Process for Treating Gold Ores.  Considerable attention is at present  being attracted to a new process bromo-  ehlOrine mill which is being built for the  Golconda mine, near Baker City, Oregon.  If the process proves a success it will  make a great difference in the mining  operations of the  northwest.   A force of  stonemasons and mechanics is constructing this'iniM for the owners of the Golconda, J. G. and J. T. English of Daus-  ville, Illinois. The mill is on the slope of  a mountain of ore, and covers 170x300  feet, already having required 000,000 feet  of lumber and heavy timbers in its construction. The story goes that the Illinois  capitalists secured for $5000 the secret of  the n6w bromo-chlorine process from a  poor inventor of Colorado, who had not  the means to test his plan by erecting a  large plant. The easterners are so sure  that they will reap a golden harvest that  thev are developing the mine, delving out  vast lots of quartz and erecting this  bromine-chlorine plant, at a cost very  close to $100,000. The mill is expected-to  treat 100 tons of ore per day, and to save  a greater percentage of the gold than can  be saved by any other known process. It  is expected the mill will be completed by  April 1st. If the process is a success there  will be a revolution in milling such ores as  require chemical treatment.  TELEGRAPHIC NEWS BY WIRE  Proceedings of Parliament.  -Victoria, Feb. 4.���Messrs. Turner, Hall  and McPhillips took their seats,yesterday  in the house. The galleries were crowded,  there being quite au ovation when the  members were escorted to the speaker by  their sponsors. A bouquet of fiowers had  been placed on the ex-premier's desk, and  every member of the opposition wore a  boutonniere as an evidence of victory.  The principal business done was committee work on government measutes,  one of which, to amend the Constitution  Act, is rather important. It provides for  the creation of a sixth portfolio, minister  of mines and provincial secretary's offices  being separated. Only five members are  to receive salaries, the president of th��  council, as formerly, being without salary. It is generally expected that Hig-  gins, the .member for E-qmmalt, will be  made provincial secretary, Hume of Nelson remaining minister of mines.  Ralph Smith and James Dunsmuir had  a little set-to in the lobby of the house  yesterday afternoon. Dunsmuir assailed  Smith for supporting the anti-Japane.-e  legislation, calling him an agitator.  Smith retorted in kind, telling Dunsmuir  it needed agitators to stand off the op-'  pressing of capitalistic tyrants like himself. It looked for a few moments as  though the matter would not end there,  but Smith withdrew when Dunsmuir appeared to be losing control of his tern per.  Much interest is taken here in the eltjc-'  tions at Nelson and Golden.

This is on a par  with other claims. It is mere claptrap.  The Semlin government has, without the  two seats thatare vacant in ttieKootenays,  speaker Forster in the chair and 19 supporters on the floor of the house. The  opposition could not count but 18 noses if  they won both seats in Kootenay. The  government members are: Cotton, Deane,  Forster, Green, Hegleson, Henderson,  Iliggins, Kellie, Kidd, Kinchant, Mac-  pherson, Martin (Rossland), Martin (Vancouver), McKechnie, Munro, Neill, Prentice, Semlin, Smith and Tisdall.

It is no more than, the  clPsjng up of every saloon in the city for  i a period pf two years. Members of the  Akron Liquor Leag:ue make this statement in all seriousness orid claim the project is entirely feasible. The nianner of  doing this is by the following method:  The National Liquor League, covering 34  states, is Strong etiPiigh to, p&y the pro-  "    prietoi-s  pf  the  local    Saloohs   revenue  " ".eripugh tb keeri thein out of thd busirie^,  and will dp so in order to give the popple  of Akron and of all other cities an object  lessOji on the suff.rings which will be entailed Pn the municipality by clojsing  these places. The Dow tax, paid by the  saloons, amounts in Akron to a yery large  sum, the most of which goes to the police  and poor funds, and the loss of this, the  liquor dealers figure, will seriPusly era-  barass the finances of the city. Akron  has been selected as the city for this obr  ject lesson because of the recent agitation  by the ministers here against the saloons  of the city.   Mackenzie Bowell Sued.  A writ has been issued in the high court  of justice at Ottawa against sir Mackenzie  Bowell for $1141, the amount of the floral  wreath supplied at the funeral of sir John  Thompson with interest. The wreath was  valued at $900 and $231 is charged for interest. Sir John Thompson died at Windsor Castle, December 12th, 1891.   His remains were brought to Halifax by a man-  of war and were interred there.   It was a  state funeral.   Among the many tributes  to   the dead statesman  paid  for at the  public   expense and  which  were in evidence in the procession to the grave, was  one  from   his  "devoted colleagues," the  inscription on it was as follows : "A tribute of affection from his devoted colleagues,  Mackenzie Bowell,   John Curran, Frank  Smith, A.  P.  Curon, T.  M. Daly, J,  G.  Haggart, A. R. Angers, and W. B, Ives."  It comprised a floral wreath supplied by  W. B.

One of my deskomtes in the office at the  ministry of war was an ex-non-commissioned officer, Henri Vidal.   He had lost  'ibis left arm in the Italian campaign, but  with his = remaining hand be executed  marveld of caligraphy���down to drawing  with one pen-stroke a bird in the flourish  of his signature.  A good fellow, Vidal ; the type of the  upright old soldier, hardly forty, with a  sprinkling of gray in his blonde imperial  ���he;had been in the Zouaves. We all  called<himPere Vidal, more respectfully  than familiarly, for we all knew his life  of honor and devotion. He lived in a  cheap little lodging at Grenelle, whereon the nioney of his cross, his pension and  his salary���he managed to support his  widowed sister and her three children.  Three thousand francs for five people !  No matter, his redingote; the empty left  sleeve caught to the third button, was  always brushed as if for parade ; and so  seriously did he take his red ribbon, invariably fresh, that he took it out of his  buttonhole whenever-he carried a ^pair of:  anyicbm mbari  8wentz  s|��boots pr^trpuset^dr  ^",p1ace;erranM:,��i\v*11��\V  >-A��-As:at tbat.timeti,too,"iw^asJivingTin;the,  �� Wontlier n���subur;b df^aris/Jk; often;BwaIked.  *;$honie*w,ithfPe^  iFhimjtelKiot���"his.���oampaigus-as.- vvefpassed!

'  Vidal, seizing my arm with 'his right  hand and turning his slightly tipsy gaze  on me, raised his stump to point out one  of the uniforms, ab African.officer's tunic,  with the kilted skirt aiid the three gold  braids making a figure eight .on the  sleeve,  "Lopkf' he said; "that's the uniform of  my old corps, ii captain's tiinic."  ��rawiiig nearer, be made out the number engraved pn the buttons, and went on  with enthusiasm:  "My regiment!   The First Zouaves!"  Suddenly bis hand shook, his face darkened; dropping his eyes, lie murmured, in  a horror-stricken voice:  "Mon Dieu, what if it were his!"  Then brusquely turning the coat about,  he showed me in the middle of the back a  little round hole, bordered by a black rim  ���blood/ of course���it ulade one shudder,  like the sight of a wound.  "A hasty scar,",I said to Pere Vidal,  who had dropped the garment and was  hastening away. And foreseeing a tale,  I added to spur him on: "It's not usually  in the back that bullets strike captains of  the.Zouaves."  He apparently did not hear me; be  mumblecf to bijiaself':. "How could it get  there?. It's a long way from the battlefield of Melegnauo to the Boulevard of  Grenelle I Oh, yes, I know���the carrion  crows, that follow the army; 'the strippers of the dead! But why just there,  two steps from the military school where  the other fellow's regiment is stationed?  He must have passed; be must bave recognized it.    What a ghost!"  "See here, Pere Vidal," said I, violently  interested, "stop your muttering, and tell  me what the riddled tunic recalls to you."  Except for the two absinthes, I doubt  if he would have spoken, for he looked at  me timidly, almost suspiciously. Suddenly, with a great effort, be began :  "Well then, here goes for the story ; I  can trust you; you will tell me frankly,  on your honor, if you think my conduct  ,      excusable.    Where shall I begin?   Ah, I  .; can't give you the other man's surname,  j^ v;     ;.y for he is still living, but I will him by the  name he went under in the regiment���  Dry-Jean���and he deserved it, with his  . .' ��_-i'if'  ,8war  twelve drinks at the stroke of noon.  "He was sergeant in the Fourth of the  Second, my regiment, a good fighter, but  fond of quarrel and drink���all the bad  habits of the African soldier; brave as a  bayonet, with cold, steel-blue eyes and a  rough red beard on his tanned cheeks.  When I entered the regiment Dry-Jean  had just re-enlisted. He drew his pay  and went on a three days' spree. He and  two companions of the same kidney rolled  through the low quarters of Algiers in a  cab, flying a tricolor bearing the words  'Ic won't last forever.' It did wind up  with a knock-down fight at a Moorish  woman's dive. She got a kick that did  her up, Dry-Jean a cut on the head from  a tringlo that nearly finished him, a fortnight in the guard-room and the loss of  his stripes���the second time he had lost  them.  "Of well-to-do parents and with some  education, he would have risen to be an  officer long before if it bad not been for  his conduct.   Eighteen months later he  got his stripes back again, thanks to the  indulgence of   the  old  African  captain  who had seen him under fire in Kabylie.  Hereupon our old captain  is   promoted  chief of battalion, aud they send us out a  captain of twenty-eight, a Corsican named  Gentili, just out of school, a cold, ambitious, clever fellow, very exacting, hard  on bis men, giving eight days for a speck  of rust on your gun or a button off your  gaiters; moreover, never having served in  Algeria, not   tolerating  fautasia  or the  slightest   waut  of  discipline.   The   two  took a hatred to each other from the first;  result, the guard-room for Dry-Jean after  every drinking bout.    When the captain,  a blackkavised little fellOw, as stiff as a  bristle, with the mustaches of an augry  cat,   flung  his.puuishment at Dry Jean's  head,   adding  curtly,   'I know   you, my  man, and I'll  bring you to order!'   Dry-  Jean answered never a word and walked  away quietly to pack-drill.   But all the  same the captain might have come off his  high horse a bit had he seen the rage that  reddened the sergeant's face as soon as be  turned. his   headland.;%the. hatred,that';  'flashed^thrpugh^m^  ?"^>HerejVpp^  aWainstShe-AifSp^  off to?

There's going to  be fighting tomorrow; try to get killed.'  "Sure enough, at dawn the canhOnade  awoke us* The column formed, and Dry-  J,ean--never had his cursed blue eyes  glittered more ominously���placed himself  beside me. The battalion moved forward ; we were to ^dislodge the white  c_>at_, who, with their cannon, occupied  Melegnano. Forward, mairch! At the  second kilometer tile Augtrians' grape-  shot cut down 15 of our company's men.  Then our officers, waiting for the order tP  charge, made us lie dbwu in the grain  field, sharp-shootervvise ; they remained  standing naturally, and our .captain  wasn't the least straight Of the lot. Kneeling in the rye, we kept firing at the battery, which lay within range. Suddenly  someone jogged my elbow. I turned and  saw Dry-Jean, who was looking at me, the  corner of his lips raised leeringly, lifting  his gun.  "'Do you see the captain?' he said,  nodding in that direction.  " 'Yes, what of it?' said I, glancing at  the officer, 20 paces off.  " 'He was foolish to speak to me as he  did last night.'  "With a swift, precise gesture, be  shouldered his arm and fired. I saw the  captain���his body bent backward, bis  head thrown up, bis hands beating the  air for an instant���drop his sword and fall  heavily on his back.  " 'Murderer!' I cried, seizing the sergeant's arm. But he struck me with the  butt of bis rifle, rolling me over, and exclaiming :  " 'Fool! prove that I did it.'  "I rose iu a rage, just as all the sharpshooters rose likewise. Our colonel, bareheaded, on his smoking horse, pointed bis  sabre at the Austrian battery, and  shouted : _  "'Forward, Zouaves! Out with your  bayonets!'  "Could 1 do otherwise than charge with  the others? What a famous charge it  was, too! Have yeu ever seen a high sea  dash on a rock ? Each company rushed  up like a breaker on a reef.

In 20 leaps I reached  the redoubt; helping myself with my  rifle-butt I crossed the talus. I had only  time to seeajbloude mustache, a bluecap,  and a carbine barrel almost touching me.  Then I thought my arm flew off. I dropped my gun, fell dizzily on my side near  a gun-carriage wheel, and lost consciousness.  "When I opened my eyes nothing was  to be heard but distant musketry. The  Zouaves, forming a disordered half-circle,  were shouting, 'Vive 1' Empereur !' and  braudishing their riflns.  Au old general followed by his staff  galloped up. He pulled up his horse,  waved his gilded betulet gayly, and  cried :  " 'Bravo, Zouaves 1 You are the first  soldiers in the world !'  "I found myself sittiug near the wheel,  supporting my poor broken paw, when  suddenly I remembered Dry-Jean's awful  crime. At that very instant he stepped  out of the ranks toward the general. He  had lost his fez, and from a big gash on  bis cloee-shaveu head ran a trickle of  blood. Leaning on bis gun with one band,  with the other he held out an Austrian  flag, tattered and dyed red���a flag he had  taken. The general gazed at him admir-  ihgly.  " 'Hey there, Bricourt!' turning to one  of his staff; 'look at that, if you please.  What men !'  "Whereupon Dry-Jean, in his canaille  voice, spoke up :  " 'Quite so, my general.   But you know  ���the  First   Zouaves ��� there   are   only  enough left for once more!'  ��� '.'

I did ray utmost to quiet Pere Vidal, assuring hini he had acted for the bast.  Five days later, on reaching the office,  Vidal handed me a paper folded at a certain paragraph, and murmured gravely:  "What did I tell you ?"   I read:  "Another victim of intemperance.���  Yesterday afternoon, oti the Boulevard  de Grenelle, a certain Jean Mallet, known  as Dry-Jean, sergeaut in the Zouaves of  the imperial guard, who with two companions had been drinking freely, was  seized with delirium tremens while look-*  ing at some old Uniforms hanging in a  second-hand shop. He drew his bayonet  ancl dashed down the street to the terror  of all passers by. The two privates with  hita bad the utmost difficulty in securing  the madman, who shouted ceaselessly: *'I  am not a murderer, I took an Austrian  flag at Melegnano!' It seems that the  latter statement is true. Mallet was decorated for this feat; his addiction to  drink has alone prevented him from rising in the ranks. Mallet was conducted  to the military hospital at Gros-'Caiilon,  whence he will soon be transferred to  Charenton, for it is doubtful if he can recover his reason."  As I returned the paper to Vidal', he  looked at me meaningly and concluded:  "Captain Gentili was a Corsican���he  has avenged hiiusell!"  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  'to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  rto&  .'-'^'^���S'a'^'a'S'^,S'S'iii'i'-^'i?,VS'a,^'S'>'^,a'?'.^'a'^'^'^'^ *  Bap Glassware...

The date of M. Holdieh's lecture on
"Fire" has been  changed  from Tue«da5r,
the 7th, to Thursday, the 9th hist. The
lecture, which is to be illustrated by experiments-, will be held in the mission
room of St. Saviour's church, and to those
who know the lecturer, it need hardly be
said that a thoroughly interesting as well
as instructive talk may confidently be expected.
The Gait Coal Company will shortly put
a cheaper grade of domestic coal on the
local market. For domestic purposes t his
second grade coal will give equal satisfaction with the first grade article, the only
difference being that there will be no
large lumps in it. This coal the Gait company will sell delivered for $6 per ton.

The city engineer is having considerable
difficulty in keeping the waterworks
flume, between the dam on Anderson's
creek and the reservoir, clear of ice. Last
night a force of nine men were engaged
in cutting away the ice and today the
men working on the electric light flume
were brought in to assist in the work.
The steamer Miuto did not get through
to Robson last evening. She may "succeed
in doing so today, but if the cold snap
continues the railway company will
abandon the Columbia river route for

this be decided on, the freight for all
southern points will bebroughtinover the
Slocan River branch.
