 KOOTENAY  Has Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can be Made  Dividend Paying Mines.  DAILY   EDITION:  FIRST YEAR-NO. 34.  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY  11, 1899.  KOOTENAY  Has   a   Mineral   OutpUt' of Upwards   oi    One  Million    Dollars    Every    Month  In   The  Year  WEB KLY  EDITION:  SEVENTH   FEAR-NO   10  A WORKING JINER'S SPEECH  Two Governments Compared.  James Wilkes of Rowland, who occupies  the important position of vice-president  for British Columbia of the federated  labor organi/.ttions of the Dominion, has  pronounced views upon the question of  provincial politics which are worthy of  the consideration of those whose interests  lie with the industrial classes. As the  representative of organized labor he  deems it is duty to do what he can to  secure the return of Hon. J. Fred Hume,  because he has found in his dealings with  the Semlin 'government,, of which Mr.  Hume is a member, that it is a government genuinely in sympathy with the  working classes in their efforts to secure  reforms and improved conditions i'or  themselves. .  At Thursday erening's meeting iu the  Hume hotel Mr. Wilkes made a speech in  support of the candidature of Mr. Hume,  in which he recited several of the reasons  why those in sympathy with the cause of  organized labor should support the government candidate.    While not a finished  speaker, the labor leader showed that he  had a good  grasp of the politics of the  province.   In his opening remarks he said  that he was quite aware of the fact that,  there was always more or less aversion to  those who invariably cropped up as public speakers when au election contest was  on,  but so far as himself was concerned  he   would  at   the  outset  do    what   he  could     to   remove   it.     Though     possibly   a   stranger    to    many    of    those  who composed  his audience,  he was not  a stranger to the province of British Columbia, and he questioned if auyone present had been a resident of the province  for a longer period than he had.   Taking  up the issues of the campaign he depreci:  ated the efforts which  were being made  by the opponents of the government to  obscure the real issues of the campaign.  Even admitting,  he said, that attorney-  general Martin was a czar, the men who  made up the industrial army in the district  should remember that there were  greater issues involved  in. the campaign  than.even the attorney-general himself.  They should remember that to a certainex-  tent tho Semliu- administration was on  trial, and the only excuse he had fpr appearing in the contest was that he might  be     "able      to1     show .r the      working  meii     of   -the   , province      that      the  Semlin government was,one which was in  touch with the principles of-reform, so  far as the industrial element of the province understood   them.   Since  assuming  office,, the policy of the Semlin government, in its dealings with.the representatives of organized labor, was in striking  contrast with the abortive efforts-of the  Turner administration to secure the sympathy and aid of the industrial element.  * The manner in which  the Turner government had trifled with the interests of  the labor party was well evidenced bythe  way  in   which   it  had   dealt   with  the  matter ofexcluding Chinese from working intbe coal mines of. the province.'   If  there was any real sympathy between the  Turner government  and   the   forces   of  organized    labor,    how    was    it    that  legislation     passed'    for     .he      benefit  of      labor        was       allowed       to     remain   a dead letter for nine years, and  that certain people were allowed to openly   violate the   law and exert   more   in-  ihienee with   the^ government  than.the  combined"    forces    of    organized   labor  Jthrojighout the province;   For riirie^yearB,  "undent fre^Tiu'ner  goyernment, aha  its.  predecessor, this condition pf affairs existed, but the insiant the Bemlin administration assumed the reins of power .he  influence of the OliinesC-eniploying, over  the government of the province, was lost.  When the Semlin government went into  office Puttjjime the Chinamen who were  employed in the coal mines Contrary tp  law.    It was then discovered that  the  colliery     "owner* ��� who     was    fighting  organized    labor,    had    another    card  up    his     sleeve,     and    as    soon      as  the Chinamen   were forced out he  put  the Japanese in.   The next move of the  Semlin administration was in the direction of   turning   the   Japanese   out as  well.   This legislation had not been perfected as yet,   but the government had  outlined it in the speech from the throne,  and there was no reason why the good  faith Of the   government in the matter  should be impugned, or why the government should   not receive due credit for  its gPod intentions.  The men who were obliged, to work for  their living would do well to remember  that in the present administration they  had a government which had showed  sufficient regard for their interests to intimate that thej^would place upon the  statute books legislation which would  provide for the removal of the Japanese  as well as the Chinese from employment  underground in the mines. The speaker reminded his hearers that he had been  practically raised in the coal mines; that  he had been obliged to work in the mines  along with Chinese, and that he was conversant with the disadvantage and danger which resulted to the white miner  from the condition which obliged them to  work side by side with Chinese.  Another circumstance which illustrated  the indifference of the Turner government to the welfare of working miners  was the manner in which it had delayed  to make operative the act passed by the  legislature in 1897 which provided for the  inspection of the metalliferous mines.  When the act became law the trades and  labor council in Rossland sent a request  to the government that it appoint an inspector in accordance with the. terms of  the act, but it was not until the govern  ment was in the throes of dissolution that  a permanent appointment was made, and  the position given to a government supporter in the house who for the lack of a  seat could bo of no further use to the government.     Thus   tho   lives  of   the   men  working in the mines of Kootenay weie  made a secondary consideration  to  the  political  exigencies of   the government.  The unwillingness of the Turner government to remove the tax upon  men  working iu the metalliferous  mines for wages  was another evidence of the indifference  of that government to the rights of working miners.  In contrast to this the Semlin  government immediately upon its accession to power gave notice of its intent ion of  removing this tax.   Premier Turner when  pressed upon this question informed the  people that he had  never been asked  to  repeal this tax.   This was not in accordance with the facts as. the speaker said  that he himself had drafted a resolution  which had been forwarded from Rossland,  asking  that   the tax be removed.    Mr.  Wilkes said he was not prepared to say  that in this matter Mr. Turner was guilty  of a gross falsehood, but he was prepared  to say that the resolution requesting the  removal of the tax was forwarded to him.  Since  the   Semlin   government had  announced its policy of repealing the tax  Mr. Turner had accused the members of  the new government of stealing the old  government's policy.     Mr. Turner was in  power for four years.   He had a majority  two to one greater than that of the present government,  yet he  made no move  in the   matter of the repeal of the tax.  He now professed himself as in favor of  the repeal of the tax, but he seemed to  overlook the fact that if it was a good  thing to repeal it now,   it  would have  been equally meritorious to have secured  its repeal four years before.  The same might be said with respect to  the mortgage tax. In both these matters  the Semlin government had shown its  active sympathy with the industrial  class. The indifference of the Turner  government was again shown when the  National congress of labor sought to have  the government appoint anMuspector of  the boilers of stationary engines. Mr.  Turner was asked in March last by Mr.  Macpherson of Vancouver to introduce an  act to provide for the appointment. The  records of the house fail to show that he  did anything to meet the request. The  new government was asked to provide for  such.ah appointment, and it intimated its  intention of doing so in the speech" from  the throne. These circumstances in  themselves showed that the Semlin government wasentitled to the hearty support of the workingmeri of the province;  There was one other reform which the  trade and labor congress had instructed  its representatives in this province to secure if possible, and that was a reduction  in the hours of labor, for the men employed underground iiVthe mines, and in  this a" in other requests which the speak-"  er had male on behalf of labor, the Semlin  government had returned a favorable response. . In the mines in this province  men are workiug- 10 hours as day, day in  and day out, a condition,of- affairs which  does not exist in any other country. As  the representative of organized labor  he could assure them that the  present unsatisfactory condition would be  changed and changed by the Semlin government. Mr. Wilkes said, that he had  the most positive assurances from the  Semlin administration that a measure  will be introduced into the legislature  which will make it illegal to compel men  to be longer under ground than 8 hours.  For this reason the speaker said that he  considered that he wasJbut doing his duty  as the representative1 of"the national con-  ^gre.s/ofJabo^ih-making^the-mos.t^of^his  "position to induce the friends of organized labor'to support the government candidate. In no other way could the \ya#e-  e&fcuers show their appreciation of the favors which organized labor had received.  Respectinjar the effort of Frank Fletcher,  to lead the electors, to believe that if J.  Fred Hume were returned the alien exclusion legislation wotilcl be applied to  quartz milling, the speaker said that the  records were all contrary to such a contention. The records: would show that  the measure tp exclude aliens from qu%rjz  mines was introduced by a supporter of  the Turner government while Mr; Hume  was out of the house, and it received the  fgeneral support of the men whose eol-  eagueMr. Farwell would be if returned  to Victoria. It was Mr. Hume who pointed  out the mistake of such legislation^ and  induced the house to revoke its action.  On the question of Chinese competition  the records of the house would show that  the head of the present Opposition had  never given a vote in favor of the exclusion of the Chinese, while Mr. Hume had  never at any time voted against the interest of the white laborers of the province, and the supporters of the opposition could not point to a single instance  in which the present government, or any  of its supporters, had taken a position in  opposition to the interests of the industrial classes of the province. Such was  the government he asked the friends of  organized labor to support. It was a government which had shown itself favorable to organized labor, and the friends  of labor should do all they could to  support it.   Hume Gains oh the Transfers.  When the present election campaign  was started the supporters of standing  candidate Farwell made their boast that  they would secure enough transfers to  carry the election in favor of their candidate. The list was closed at 4 o'clock today, when the fact was disclosed that the  members of the Hume committee had secured more than four times the number of  transferred voters that were secured for  the Farwell committee. Something over  100 names were added to the list by  transfers.  MINING   ABOUND   YMIR.  Ymir, Feb. 10.--The Blackcock mine  which has been making regular shipments  to the Nortbport smelter for the past six  weeks, has suspended further shipments.  It is said that the owners of the property  had some disagreement, wi'h 'he North-  port smelter. In all about. 15 ear* of ore  were shipped during the six weeks. The  smelter returns were not made public,  but the ore is generally understood to  carry a value of about $(50 to the ton.  The Wilcox property, of which Phil  White is the owner, is working a small  force of men and is showing up well. A  stamp mill will be erected upon the property in the spring. There are two tunnels in upon the ledge; one is in 150 feet  aud the second 350 feet. The long tunnel  gives a depth of 130 feet. The ledge is  from two to three feet wide. There are  about 200 tons of ore upon the dump  which it is estimated will average $35 in  gold to the ton.-'.  The mill at the Ymir mine will probably  start up today, as the trouble with the  pipe which supplies the power has been  remedied.  The Dundee mill has been running for a  few days for the purpose of a test of the  machinery. The manager, of the company  is expected today to commence the first  actual run.  A good strike is reported from, the  Morning and Evening Star properties  near the Dundee. , Those working the  property prefess to have struck a two foot  chute of ore which gives an average value  of $50 to the ton.  The mill at the Porto Rico is running  night and day and is giving good satisfaction. There is much speculation as to  the returns and estimates on the month's  returns vary from $20,000 to $50,000.  A small force of men are working at the  Victor property. Some very rich ore has  been encountered which gives assays considerably over $100, but the extent of the  ore body has not been determined.

It was  contested by local teams, the Hill/vs.  Dale, or representatives of the hill portion of the city's hockeyists against those  from the lower portion. The hill was represented* by- Messrs.���M. Moore, Young,  H. Carney, A. H. Brown, Dill, A. Miller,  and Whellams. while the contesting team  was composed of Hunter, Stratliearn,  Donnelly,-Beecher, Lovett, Connelly and  Frost.

The down town lads won with a  score of three goals to one. W-. E. Ilodder  aud II .13. Fletcher were goal umpires and  C. Daley was referee. After the game the  losers entertained the opposing at supper  where some amusing speeches were made,  and the whole was brought to a finish  with the singing of the national anthem.  A somewhat,amusing case was tried before police magistrate Carney on Thursday afternoon. A customs officer was  charged by W. J. Hall of the Victoria  hotel with using obscene language and  swearing, being thereby a vagrant. Considerable testimony was given, hue it was  by no means clearly shoj^i^tha^JbhjUan^  "giiage~was_uls~e^7Ttcs_clMi!ged, by the accused, although there had been a Lively  scrimmage and one or two blows'had been  given. It was also shown that some lively  sprinting had been dppe by the infbrm-  ftut. It also came out in evidence that  the accuser had himself used some doubtful phraseology with reference to the accused, although not in, his presence, nor  at the time of the,-set-to. After a.patient  hearing tlie magistrate discharged the accused, leaving the complainant to pay  Whatever costs had been incurred. He  remarked .as well that had the charge*  been reversed ho might, upon the evidence'presented, have been .compelled' tp  impose a penalty. This is the first 'time  that the police magistrate hag been called  'Upon to act in this Capacity for several  weeks.  William Goodwin, ope of Kaslo's pioneer  residents, died on Friday morning of  blood poisoning, the result of a slight  wound received while working at Whitewater.

The city council at its regular meeting  got down to'business in a businesslike  way, although some of its, methods seem  crude and ill considered. A claim was  made by H. W. Bucke that a portion of  Sweeping Amendments Will Be  Made  to  Provincial Elections Act This Session.  Victoria, Feb. 11.���The long looked  for  Provincial   Elections    Amendment    Act  which  was introduced  by  the attorney-  general was printed and distributed in  the house   yes_erdajr.     It  makes  many  drastic changes.   Among them it provides  that all sailors, soldiers and marines shall  be disqualified from voting. All employees  of the provincial government,  drawing  salaries of more than $25 . per month  are  also  disqualified.      All   judges   of   the  supreme and county courts,- and all sheriff sand deputy sheriffs are treated in the  same way.  The bill also provides that the Cassiar  election shall be held simultaneously with  the elections in the other constituencies  throughout the province.  The voters' lists of the cities of Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster  which have been in use for years will also  be made up fresh. Courts of revision are  to be held on the first Monday in May  aud in November, instead of only one revision in August as heretofore. The voting in the cities is to .be from 9 a.m. to  7.30 p. m., and in other constituencies  from 8 a. m. to 5 p.m.  No election petition by the new bill can  be tried during the session of the legislature nor within 15 days before or after  the ses-'ion. The security to be deposited  with election petitions is reduced from  $2000 to $500.  " The opposition press is frantic here. It-  condemns the measure as iniquitous.

SATURDAY FEBRUARY" 11,   1899  Nelson is now governed by a city  solicitor, and not by a mayor and aldermen ; formerly it was governed by a  mayor and aldermen, and not by a city  solicitor. The old council issued orders to  the officials it created ; the new council  takes its orders from its appointees. But  a majority of the people of Nelson wanted  it that way.  It is even said that the purchase of the  water works system,by the old council is  to he attacked, and the individual -members of the Council that made the purchase are to be sued for the amount paid  to the Consumer's Water Works Company. The majority of the people of  Nelson willed it so.  "Jok" Martin cannot hold a candle to  "Bill" Galliher as a bulldoser.  TO THE  ELECTORS  OF THE NELSON RIDINC OF-WEST KOOTENAY.

The president of the Great South-Western Railway Company tapped impatiently  on the table. The other members of the  board kept a constrained silence, and the  second vice-president, in charge of extension, gazed longingly at a plebeian sign of  "beer" across the street and seven stories  below. It was at him the president was  directing his remarks!  "It is ridiculous," he said,, "that we  should be blocked by the obstinacy of one  man in our endeavor to build this branch  line. A casual observer would certainly  suppose that the executive department of  the company had sufficient brains to overcome such an obstacle as this. The situation is simple enough. Here is our road  and here are the mountains in which the  new strikes have been made. To develop  them, machinery must be hauled in and  ore hauled out. That means a branch  line. One man owns all the land���mesa  and foothills���between the railroad and  the mines. We must cross his ranch, but  he declines to sell a right of way. He is a  pioneer and is. bull-headed.

Theophilus SmUhcarefuiry watched  it fqiramoiuenEt, and then turned Bucyru.  among the bowlders by the roadside.  Bucyrus was his nitile- Just ahead qf the  dust-clc-iid appeared a frantic horse, tear?  ing wildly, down the 'road toward him.  Now and then.he cpuld catch glimpses of  a swaying buckboard and a young lady  clinging to the seat: Theophilus, who  was a careful young -man, put his briarr  woqfl pipe in the inside pocket of his  jacket, drew his .bmbreip down tightly  upon his head, and then disinterestedly  Watched the approaching rnnrtway. As  the dust-cloud.and its contents passed,  Bucyrus wheeled, and they, too, Went  . flyingdowij the road. Through sand and  over bowlders they went, horse, buck-  board, mule, and dust.  "Excuse me, miss," said Theophilus, as  he came alongside and reached for the bit  of the running horse ; "pleasant day, is it  not?"  He gripped the bridle hard, pulled sideways and backwards, and Bucyrus cheerfully sat down to the occasion and slid.  There was more dust, and then they  stopped.  Theophilus rubbed some of the dirt  from his eyes andfraised his sombrero to  the girl in the buckboard.1 She looked at  him with wide-open blue eyes.  "I am very sorry," he said, politely, "to  stop you so rudely merely to ask you a  question ; but will you kindly pardon me  and inform me where colonel Suortally  lives?"  The young lady's lip quivered, and, instead of replying, she burst into tears.  Then, recovering from her embarrassment  and fright, she drew a deep breath and  smiled faintly, and, as the color came  back to her cheek?, she answered:  "I am the colonel's daughter, and I will  gladly show you the way home."  Theophilus spoke a few. words to the  still restless horse, handed the reins up to  the young lady, aud led Bucyrus to: the  rear of the buckboard, to which he tied  him.   '.v  "I suppose," said-the colonel's daughter,:!  as  they started  up the  road, "that -1'  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  should thank you for saving my life and  my father's best buckboard. Really, I  thank you very much. If you will stop  at the house for dinner, I will try and  show my gratitude with some tortillas  and frijoles ot my own cooking."  "The debt of gratitude is on my side,  and not yours." Theophilus answered. "I  am in search of work as a cowboy, and I  can not but hope that your acquaintance  is an auspicious omen."  "Cowboys don't talk like that," she  said, a little sharply, eying him in surprise. "You're not fitted for a range man -  anyway. Cattlemen don't ride mule?.  Papa says there is only one animal more  ridiculous, stupid, and idiotic than a  mule, and that is the man who rides oue.  "But your father doesn't know Bucyrus."  "Nor his owner," she rejoined, laughing.  They stoped in front of a long, low,  adobe ranch-house, with deep-set windows and doors. Ivy circled the windows'and climbed to the eaves. A few  firs, some tall blue gums, and a dozen  palms stood in the front yard. The house  was set far back, and the veranda that  surrounded it was half-hidden in the  green of orange-trees. A stream from  the mountains ran through the orchard  in the rear, its course marked by a line of  cotton woods and willows, that broke the  monotony of the otherwise treeless mesa.  On the other side of the creek, and at  some distance from the house, were the  corrals aud stables of the ranch.  The young lady stepped lightly to the  ground.    "I will call papa," she said.  A few minutes later a tall man, heavy  set, with a face like the full moon in harvest time, his scanty locks somewhat grizzled with the first snowfall of the winter  of life, came swinging down the walk  with great strides.

He evidently   understood   all   the   marks   and  deeps of the bovine eharaeterj and very  .shortly   won tha't  for hitiiself which   he  could not for his mule���the Colonel's respect.   When Bucyrus would head off a  skilful    stampeder,     colonel    Snortally  would grumble -oinethitig about   "fools  Eushiii' in," and whea he would dodge a  belligerent steer he wojild growl something about a,  "fool for  luck."   On the  subject of mules  the colonel Jand Theophilus continued to disagree.   The argued  the question morning,  noon, and night*  The colonel pointed put the bad qualities  of  the mule; Theophilu. grew eloquent  over the animal's virtues.   (Jlory smiled*  but took no part in the discussion, which  resulted   in the  famous race  at  Crag's  Corner���a   race that is   still memorable  throughout all of the Poncho Basin country.  The co'onel brought out a long-legged  mustang that he had purchased across  the border the year before. This mustang was a sad deceiver, and had lightened the pocket of many a cowboy who  had bucked a home animal against the  imported stock. A light-weight Mexican  rode him. A few minutes later Bucyrus  ambled forth, wearing that surprised  look of a mule when he is but half-awakened from a sweet dream of peace with  plenty of barley hay in it. Judge Arkan-  saw West officiated as starter and judge.  All the inhabitants of the Basin were on  hand to see the race, and even old man  Johnson stopped his sheep-shearing aud  came from over the range with all the  hands to enjoy the holiday.  At the start the mustang ran away  from Bucyrus, and at the quarter there  was room enough for a threshing-machine  between them. The crowd laughed and  cheered, and the colonel issued a general  invitation to free drinks for all present  after the race, for the colonel was very  fond of his own opinion. For some  reason Glory did not smile. But when  the animals reached the half, there was a  change. Bucyrus seemed to remember  that he was neither asleep nor working  for the government. He began to run.  At the last quarter there was silence, for  the crowd was holding its breath. While  the mustang and Bacyrus were coming  down the home-stretch the colonel's  countenance was interesting, and when  Bucyrus passed under the wire something  more than an ear ahead, the colonel arose  and made his way through the silence to  Crag's Palace of Delight and faintly asked  for a stimulant.  That night Theophilus showed a woeful  lack of good taste. He ostentatiously reviewed the merits of the mule family, and  of Bucyrus in particular. The colonel,  sat in fiery silence and chewed the cud of  bitter reflection, but finally, when Theophilus wound up by declaring that Bucyrus could outrun the Overland Limited  from Crag's Corner to the mountain-road  crossing, a distance of a little over a mile,  Colonel Snortally arose in his wrath and  swore.  "I'll bet ye anything ye want that yer  wall-eyed apology fer a hoss can't do anything of the kind," he said.  "Will you bet my pick of any hundred  unimproved acres on jrour ranch against  Bucyrus that he can't ?" quietly asked  Theophilus.  "Sartinly," said the colonel, who, deep;  down in his heart, had a liking for Bucyrus.  "All right," said Theophilus; "if you  say so, we will settle it tomorrow���going  west." The colonel said so and went to  bed.  By the light of the stars that night a  man rode hurriedly down to Crag's Corner, the nearest railroad station, and before dawn rode as hurriedly back to the  ranch again.  The next day was another day of excitement in the Basin.   The rumor of the  novel race spread swiftly.; That is why  Ike^ Williams  heard, way up in Rocky  Gulch, tha,t Colonel Snortally .hadibet,his,  ���forty thousang��;acre^anch\againsot��a*herd.;  dijm"ules\that ia_ .certain, ^swif iT��� animall of?  ��ha_,v:km.dvcould"%^^  ".Limited-inX ten-milefrac^^5vf" vtfV(&%>:  IJTh"e>va;go-riVrb^  railroad *;track^ so:Bncyi;us.���wa&7nQtfhandi-A  l"ca��pftedt^sT,h^  ^th*e.��!!a|t^^  trcmehdous��spni^Tshbt?ahe  itvyeen.'hi^seltfand^theeng^m  a"re\wiseacfes iri"the��Basin|\vhb^h"ake��their  sli^ads ��� when.. jtel,hngv*of f .fcha.fr. wonderJUd  race,j'and hi!it-���thkt*the;;erigineer;^w4s: na^  ,"��� "sG���oldnel".^Sn;6rial ly-wasia^gopd nlbser^and���  ' hp"Coh*.e��fltll ly* in.yi ted? l^heophil Us��. put;" the^  : nex^d^y;tpp:chposa  ^wa*s1iotsth��e"���lesC*.heerfiil" -becaiise" THeol^  philjLi^tbc'nighfc before Jbad .magjejhitn a  ^present "of>Bucyrus: Theophiltta prpyed  anjatnazing;choosey...��� He, .tpok^ a narrow  stripn"6f^^land-riinlnirlgfr���pm ^h|s>cornpf ��u"p=  ���tq.^WarJder's CahSn^Iat libhefopt" pf thpf  , mpjunt^in|;i\Tp"���t^  "IVfs cnbicje, ;he= said, spmefrhiug about i���t,!  m.akijggiB^;fe6b;d;'r1a_erti',acItj...

The colonel's face was  like the sun shining red through a  th ufadeii-clo'q'd.^He was too much.agitated  to speak for a minute, but when he did  begin fro talk his words were to the point.  From his expression one .might gather  that"'he ..was'perturbed, by the fact that  Theophilus had sold a certain 1.Q0 acres of  land as a right of Way to the Great  South-Wester 11 Railway 'Company. Colonel Snortally finished; by declaring his  intention of removing from the scene a  stranger who had takeu him in, and there  with drew his revolver.  There was a rustle of a dress, a low cry,  and Glory was sobbing, with her face on  TheophilUs's shoulder.  "Don't do it, .olonel, unless you feel  compelled to," said Theophilus-, rising  with one arm about Glory', "and unless  ypii want to make Glory a widow. We  were married two days ago."  Colonel Snortally's face grew white and  the revolver slipped from his gni.sp.  Glory was the dearest of all to him.  The president of the Great South-Western Railway Company looked across the  street and down seven stories to a certain  plebeian sign. Then he arose and picked  up his cane aud silk hat.  "Well," he said, "we won after all.  That; was cleverly done���cleverly done."  "Yes," said the second vice-president;  "but the attacking force lost heavily.  For the young man from my office who  engineered the deal has married the  colonel's daughter, made peace with the  colonel, and at the last report was laying  out a town at the terminus of our projected branch, and selling corner lots."  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  to  m  to  Bar  ��� �� ���  We are now carrying a most complete line of Bar Supplies, including  all the latest styles of Whisky, Wine  and Beer glasses.

Frank Dana Moore, purser on the  steamer Moyie, was presented last night  with a leather medal, by the officers of  the steamer Kokanee, as a token uf their  appreciation of the part he took in the  rescue of Isaac Lewis, a few days ago.  The medal was decorated on one side with  four brass buttons with the inscription  "Royal Humane Society." On the other  side was the inscription "Awarded to  Frank Moore, purser of steamer Moyie,  for conspicious bravery, iu diving into  the icy waters of Kootenay lake and saving Isaac Lewis from 'drowning." The  presentation was made at the slip near  Kootenay Landing by captain D. 0. Mc-  Morris. Mr. Moore made a modest and  fitting reply, disclaiming any desire that  his name should be handed down to posterity as a "hero."  H.-D. Ashcroft, who has been confined  to his room for the past week with an attack of la grippe, is able to be around  again.-  The trausfer of the Rams Horn mineral  claim, situatebetween Hidden and Porcupine creeks, from Valentine Carson of  Ymir, to Archie Gilfillau, was recorded  today, consideration $100.
