Miller, the Chicago  gripman, maintains his position of longdistance  champion   of  the   world.     He  made 2192 miles.   Aaronson came second  with 2141 miles.   No less than six of the  contestants    broke   the   world's   record.  The trainer and friends of Grim, who finished fifth after leading the procession  for over three days, claim he must have  been drugged.   They assert his collapse  was  too   sudden   to   be   due to  natural  causes. ________  Don't Want a Sawmill.  Vancouver', Feb. 20.���There is great indignation here over the lease of Dead-  irian's island to Chicago capitalists for the  purpose of the erection of a sawmill on it.  Strong protests from representative  bodies, such as the city council, board of  trade, and labor council, have been sent  to Ottawa, but it is feared they will prove  unavailing to prevent the transfer. The  ��� newspapers are filled with protests from  West End residents. Maxwell, M. P., is  also being strongly censured for assisting  to put the deal through.  More Indificite Information.  Montreal, Feb. 20.���The Herald's Washington special says: "There is talk of an  adjournment of the Canadian-American  commission for a short time without the  preparation of a treaty.

Letters written the first week  in January state that the road was then  ���in such splendid conditiorr that 10 dogs  were easily pulling a sled load of 2000  pounds. Four stages were then running  between lire forks of El Dorado and  Bonanza and Dawson, each making a  round trip daily. The distance is 11 mile-.  For the first time iu Dawson's history  hauling is being almost overdone, resulting in the lowering of rates to minimum  prices. Wood is also very cheap, having  dropped from $-15 to $1-1 a cord. Many  destitute.men are cutting wood and hauling it to the miner's cabins on hand sleds.  KASLO   NEWS   NOTES.  THE   RIGHT   MAN.  By bill of sale bearing date the loth of  February, F. J. Donaldson of Sandqu  transfers to John E.. Jones of the same  place for the consideration of $700 an undivided one-sixth interest in the mineral  claims Carbonate No. 2,. Clearwater, Congress, Lemuel and Sevvall. These' claims  are located near the head of Spring creek  about three miles from the Kaslo and  Slocan railway. . Carbonate No; 2 adjoins  the well known Carbonate and has produced some very good ore as the result of  development work. It is also near the  Texas and Cowboy.  The "Comas Club," which has had a  series of very enjosrable dances during the  winter, will give a fancy dress party as a  final entertainment on the eyening-of the  28bh instant. Every effort will be made  to ensure success, a.s the preliminary" ar-"  rangenients are in the .hands of a competent and energetic committee. It is  intended .to extend invitations to acquaintances in other cities. It will, doubtless,  be a notable function.  There is a well defined rumor that the  St. Prancras Inn, for some time vacant, is  soon to be reopened under the management of the landlady of the popular hotel  and restaurant at the corner of First and  Fifth streets. It is expected that the city  council will consent to lower the '.sidewalk  in front of the building, in order to make  it somewhat more accessible, if it can  legally be done.  D. C. Irwin of Peterborough, and J. J.  Jolliffe and S. Dovlittle of Orillia came  dowrr from Creston on Friday evening  last-and registered at the Kaslo. They  belong to a party of eleven eastern Canadians who^ came over the Crow's Nest  Pass railway and are looking for good  timber limits.

They will reunite at Nakusp and  proceed to the coast in furtherance of, the  object which they have in .view. Those-  of the party who sojourned in Kaslo expressed themselves as-being very favorably impressed by what they saw of British Columbia.  ,    -     ���  The petition to a judge of the supreme  court attacking the validity of the election of alderman George T. Kane to the  municipal couucil* has been duly filed  with the registrar of the court ih -accordance with section 91 of the "Municipal  Elections" Act." A copy will be served  upon Mr. Kane in due course. The court  will then be asked to formulate rules for  the further prosecution of.the case, as this  has not yet been done.

The  truth is that it Was while a Tory government was in office that the Oil Trust got  itsfpdfholdanCahkdd. but weare Sure it  would- be childish -to direct any  very severe censure against the  Tory government on that account.

It  may do something to relieve the situation. If it declares that these discriminations shall not continue, and exerts its  full power under the railway law to give  give equal rates to the trusts' competitors, it will do its duty and earn public  approval. This the people expect, but  they take rio stock in the ridiculous  charge that the government is responsi-  b\e for the action of the trust and the  railways. In fact, it is a pity to have to  deal at all with such little, petty, malicious misrepresentations. It is neither  pleasant nor polite to have to answer a  fool according to his folly.

He arrived in  England shortly before Christmas. He  had never seen the young woman he  married. He spent Christmas in Londpn,  and afterwards delivered a, letter of introduction which he brought with him to  Miss Cbishplm's father. He immediately  fell in love with the daughter, and their  marriage was arranged in the quickest  possible time, because of MaeDonald's  business affairs, which necessitated his  return to the Tukou almost immediately.  The bride is 20 years old, and very pretty.  She is a descendant of the ancie'nt clan of  Chisholm, which fought so gloriously at  Culloden. The ceremony was performed  by the bride's uncle, the Rev. canou Chisholm of Glasgow. The bridegroom is a  big, stern man, and looks the typical  miner.

What Prance Has Gained Cannot be Over-  Estimated.  Paris, Feb. IS.���This election of M.  Loubet by a single rollcal), ami by republicans only, is the greatest republican  victory since Grevy's walk over the  course.  The new president comes from a part of  France where  the Roman  power lasted  longest, namely, Marsanne, in the department of the Drome.   He gives the  impression of remote L-vtin origin and looks  to be a solid, practical man who sees the  facts of life just as they are. As president  of the senate he hashad official experience  that will be useful to him as president of  the republic, but he is essentially a plain,  middle-class man, whose mind was sharpened by his practice at the bar in the  provincial  town   of Moritelimar,   in the  south of. France.    He is there most popular, arid everyone at Moritelimar counts  himself a personal friend of Loubet, who,  as mayor, county councillor, deputy and  senator, always acted as the servant of  the public.  Obliging to his neighbors, he was as  accessible. His thick-set figure, massive  and somewhat Roman though homely  head indicate a steady, .sturdy character,  who can nail his colors to the mast, but  only fights when there is good occasion.  He belonged under the empire, to the  republican party, then eallingitself liberal.  In 1S70 he threw himself into the national  defense current and stood by Gambett.a.)  He was elected couuty councillor in 1S71.  then mayor, and in 1.70 was sent to the  chamber of deputies, where lie sat between MM. Henri and Martin, the historian. Accepting Thiers' leadership, but  favoring the scheme to declare Grevy his  political heir and reconcile Gambetta with  both, he seemed to bide his time and was  in no hurry to pu-=h forward.  MacMahou's government gave him  prominence in dismissing, him from the  mayoralty of Montelimar in 1S77, thus exasperating the Drome republicans.  M. Loubet at the legislative elections in  1877   was   triumphantly   returned.-    His  subsequent   candidatures   were   not   op- ���  posed,   aud in   IScSo he   was returned   by  Drome as a senator.    In all these yodrs Ire  was a useful deputy, chiefly  working iu.  the committees and speaking liccle. - He_  was the intimate friend of senator Uarnot=  and of M. Tirard, aud in.lSSS the latter'  appointed him-ininister of public-works,"  .iu-whichcapacity he carried out a^scheme  to conveythe sewage of Paris into the St.  Germain forest. '  /���  The president is thoroughly domestic  and, dislikes'showy society. lie likes to  spend his timeat home, aud is a great  reader. He is not rich, nor does he covet  -wealth and honors. He is strong in financial questions.- For many years he lived  in au unpretentious flat and dined off a  white oil cloth -instead of a table cloth.  His hands, figuratively speaking, are  clean, but his beard and .clothes are untidy, this contrasting with the late president.  He returned to Paris from Versailles  this afternoon by the train. He is the  first president who has done so. He ordered an operr carriage and parr to await  him at the station instead of a carriage  and four. He was well received' by the  tremendous crowds. The entire .absence  of haughtiness in his demeanor was favorably remarked.  Loubet is the right man in the right  place.

Never was a mor e monstrous conspiracy  engineered to pervert a whole nation's  sense of justice in order to perpetuate the  greatest miscarriage of law of the century  and shield a few felons 'from the Consequences of crime than the Dreyfus conviction. The moi>e sensible part of France  feels that in M. Loubet's election a great  weight has been taken off their conscience, and hopes a new leaf will be  turned bver the worst page of French  history.  M. Gleriienceau wrote that it Was necessary that the new president should  be a man not connected with the Dreyfus  affair. He therefore would support  M. Loubet. Fairness, this, but the nationalists do not want fairness. They want  Dreyfus, guilty or inuoceut, to remain  perpetually at Devil's island. It was  enough that M. Clemenceau supported M.  Loubet. The nationalists declared the  latter should not be president, or they  would make Paris too hot for honest people to live in.-  THE   BOSS   OP   THE   BOERS.  It is not   Paul Kruger, but   an Irish-African  .Named Peter Glllingham.  Presidwrrt Kruger of the Transvaal is a  man who may be classed as approachable  ���with limitations.   If you are a stranger  arid wish to talk with Kruger,  the road  to favor lies through a personal introduction by Peter Gillingham.   This Gillingham was bom of Irish parents and is a  baker by trade, arid he has plied both so  well that he has a comfortable fortune  arid is a political power in the Transvaal-  ..'

In" company with numerous speculators  arid foreign agents we haunted the sign  of "P. Gillingham, Baker," underneath  which which is another legend, in smaller  type, "and Justice of the Peace." One of  the men was from Dayton, Ohio, arid  sought Gillingham's influence to sell Oom  Paul a phaeton. Another represented an  American marble firm, and he wanted to  build a mausoleum for the ^president and  his family. Some of them had already  seen arid talked with this influential  "fixer," and.testified that he was no myth  as we had concluded after being told continually that he was "not at home" or  "had a meeting to attend." Eventually  we were ushered through the bakery into  a small sitting room, where the president's right bower receives all his callers,  arid met a man with keen blue eyes, light  hair, mustache and chin beard, of well-set  figure, square shoulders, and speaking  good, pure English. He greeted us  warmly and grot right down to business.  "I've told his honor about you," he said,  "and he is anxious to meet you. If you  will come to my house at (J o'clock tomorrow morning I'll take you down and  yioir can talk to him as long as he desires.  He's in, a good humor now, and will talk if  you know your business."  Gillingham was not disposed.to speak  of himself, aud evaded all questions bear-  iug on. politics, but toldsus with no little  pride that he was but thirty-nine years  old. He was born at the'Cape, of Irish  parents, and there absorbed the customs  of the Dutch so thoroughly that he is "regarded in Pretoria as a staunch burgher  and'good Dutchman. . 1       -   ''  Though born under the English flag he  has no love-for it; and that is the secret of  his popularity with president' Kruger,  who, though a mighty shrewd old hunter  and politician, has points of weakness  bordering on futurity. Gillingham made  his first coup with Kruger at the time of  the Jameson raid, when England threat-;  enedto, wipe Out the little republic.  With the hosts of England arrayed  against the Transvaal, and no ^friends,  this plucky Irishman got together some  of his countrymen and offered to raise a  regimeut to fight for it against the British. Furthermore, he ��� communicated  with Irishmen in America, and proposed  that they arm and equip forces to send  down to aid the Boers. Oom Paul, who is  just as geue'rous as he is vindictive, was  quite overcome by this offer, and has ever  since kept a warm spot in his heart for  the Irish.  Gillingham has no other positiori than  justice of the peace, seeks for no public  honors, is never written about, and poses  as a . tVietly neritral person.

Gillingham lives in mdro simplicity  even than Mr; Kruger, who dines with his  .coachman.

On the first day that the arrangement  was brought into operation, the pieces of  steel in question were drawn up, so that  boring could be continued. The pieces  stuck so fast to the end of the magnet,  capable of lifting 1 cwt., that they could  only be released by the application of  force. Inasmuch as the work of boring is  often interrupted by pieces of steel being  broken off and tightly jammed in the  hole; this method, which constitutes a  valuable addition to the accessories of  boring, will probably be often employed.  AN   ORB-BUYER'S   QUEER ,;iiUO__. |  ALL   SORTS   OF   PARAGRAPHS.  Judge Wheaton A. Gray of California,  was hearing a criminal case in Fresno,  and at the end of a long harangue by the  prosecuting counsel, he noticed one of the  jurymen asleep. As soon as the argument was completed, the judge addressed  the jury in this peculiar manner: "Gentlemen of the jury, the prosecuting attorney has completed his argument; wake up  and listen to the instructions of the  court."

He looked at us with a  benign smile, shook hands warmly, and  then tipped a shrewd wink, as though he  would say, "It's a smart man who can tell  a valuable diamond in the rough."  A Practical Method.  In a borehole about l)8_ feet deep, put  down near Ostroppa, iu the Gleiwitz district of Silesia, the end of a boring rod  was broken off, so that it became impossible to continue boring, owing to the pit -  ees of steel in the hole, because all the  diamond crowns were ground off. After  three weeks had been spent in various  but unsuccessful attempts to remove the  pieces of steel a bar magnet was constructed 4 feet 10 inches long and 2J inches in  diameter, which was surrounded by a  single winding of wire insulated with  india rubber, and was magnetized by a  current of a small dynamo driven of the  portable engine provided for the work of  boring. The current was easily regulated  by a simple water resistance, and kept to  the constant quality of about 30 amperes.  The magnet was let dowu unmagnetized;  and, after it had come in contact with the  How He .Recovered a Long-Lost Sole-Leather  G-rlp.   ; '���'.���.'  ' J.--E.

Last  August there was an accident on: the  Red'Mountain railway, a short distance  'out from Rossland. Mr. Jackson was on  .the train. In the confusion of transferring .the baggage to another train Mr.  ���Jackson's fine sole leather grip was lost.  Nothing was heard of the missing article  and its contents, despite repeated notices  .in the newspapers.  Last Thursday Mr. Jackson chanced to  be a passenger on the same road, bound  southward. On the seat in front of him  reposed a big burly be whiskered miner,  and beside the miner sat a grip. The grip  looked familiar.   Finally the temptation  fjroved  too   strong,   and  the   ore-buyer  eaned over the seat saying:  :   "Whosegrip is that?"  :   "I don't know," answered the miner in  his suavest manner.

[Silverton Silvertonian, February 18th.]  Ore from the Comstock mine conrmenced  coming down to the wharf on Tuesday.  Duncan Grant, one of the principal  owners of the Mabouon Ten Mile, left on  Wednesday for that mine, where" he expects to do considerable development  work this spring.  Ralph Gillette is now down on Twelve  Mile working his property, the Hamilton  group. This property has considerable  work done on it arid an excellent showing, ;  beiing rated amongst the best properties  on Twelve Mile.     ���  A. J. Marks of Nelson, the urincipal  owner of the California mine, is expected  to arrive soon in Silverton to investigate  the feasibility of transporting ores and  supplies to and from the mine over the. ;  Emily Edith trail from Silyerton. If all-  is satisfactory, he will make Silverton the  headquarters for the mine. ;  Work is progressing favorably on the  Frisco claim near the Fidelity, on which a  bond was lately given by the Silverton  owners. The work at present consists of  the driving ofi a crosscut frpm the main.;.;-,  tunnel to cut a lead intersected by the  main tunnel some distance back and running diagoually to it.  A foot of clean ore has been struck in  the drift beiujg run on the Mabou claim,  which adjoins the Enterprise mirie on Ten   '  Mile.   The ledge on the Mabou is identi-::  cal with that on the Enterprise, and the  finding ofVthis ore goes to show that the  big  ore bodies developed in  the Enter-;  prise extend over into the Mabou ground,  and   that  with development it stands av  good chance of becoming as biga property.  as its famous neighbor.

The   rock,   which is  very  hard,  shows considerable pyrites of iron arid  specks  of galena all through.   Progress  has lately been very slow on account of  the quality, of the rock encountered, but  the  work as a  whole lias been a record-  breaker.   William Iunes has eight  men  working and is sending it ahead as fast as  possible.        - THE TRIBUNE:   KELSON B.C.   MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1899.  PUBLISHERS' NOTICE.

Geohge Ross, K. of R. & S.  ��to f&vxbxmz+  MONDAY... ......FEBRUARY 20, 1893  The Toronto Globe says it is whispered  that there are no other two men in  Canada so grateful for the action of the  senate on the Yukon railway contract as  Dau Mann and William Mackenzie. Yes;  that is probably the reason why the Globe  is still so anxious to have a railway built  from Glenora to Teslin lake.  The Midway Advance is of opinion that  the Boundary Creek country is of sufficient importance to have one of its towns  made a port, so that its customs returns  shall be made direct to Ottawa and not  through either the ports of Rossland or  Nelson.   The Advance is right.  Lawyer McPhillips of Victoria is to  the present legislative assembly what  postmaster Brown was to the assembly  when he sat as a member���a tiresome  bore. McPhillips speaks on every question, as did Brown. There is but one difference, McPhillips does not score a poiut,  while Brown did, occasionally.  The people of Vancouver have always  beeu noted for their extreme selfishness.  , They never have favored aiding any railway that did not either end at Vancouver or was a branch of a road that did  , end there. They opposed the building- of  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway; they  opposed Corbin getting ah extension of  .time to complete the building of the Columbia  & Red Mountain   railway ; they  ��� opposed the people of the Boundary Creek  country getting any railway that was not  a branch of the Canadian Pacific. Yet,  Vancouver aims to be the leading city of  British Columbia. - -  WiiY does not minister-of-finance Cotton apply the principles of the tax.on successions to" the - tax on the net output of  mines���both metalliferous and coal?,Take  the Payne mine in the Slocan as an example. trlt does not owe its owner, a cent,  and last year, it is said, the owners di-"  vided close on to a million dollars profits.  Yet, the chances are, the Payne mine did  not pay as much into the provincial  treasury as did the people of the-little  town of New Denver, who, altogether,  "probably did not divide a hundred  thousand dollars between themselves as  profits'for the year. Mines like the Payne  should pay a larger share of taxation.  It seems impossible for the legislative  old basis of esteem. Sir Charles Tupper's  advance on West Huron is an inspiring  proof of the vetran's strength of body and  mind. The weight of his years would kill  or cripple most men, but the Conservative  leader displays all the power of youth as  he plunges into the thick of a winter campaign. West Huron is fair fighting ground  for sir Charles Tupper, despite the means  which the agents of the Laurier government will employ to avert defeat.  Life in the Old Man Yet;  [Hamilton Times,- February 15th.-]  It is quite certain that the Tory party  is entitled to the pity so sympathetically  expressed by Grit journals all over the  country because it has to ptit tip with a  leader who is "a back number," who "belongs to a past generation," who is "out of  touch with the spirit of the times," and is  otherwise unqualified for leadership?  Whatever the demirits of sir Charles  Tupper as a leader, he does not lack vigor  and activity. The old man, now within a  couple of years of being an octogenarian,  seems to have more life in him than most  of the political leaders.  After a long holiday in Europe we find  him returning home and plunging with  zest into the work of political organization in Quebec. In a very short time he  has overhauled the party machinery in  the lower province, and left it. running  under a full head of steam and in charge  of new and more expert workers. Now  We see him in Ontario, bustling about surcharged with energy and communicating  it to others, pregnant with plans for the  present aud hope for the future, arranging for the reorganization of the party  machinery in this province and for the  holding of a great federal convention,  representing the whole party, within a  short time. Presently he will be flying to  the other provinces to inspect the party  forces and get them in shape for the impending conflict, which is perhaps closer  at hand than many of us suspect.  There is no doubt about the Tupperian  vitality and activity.   The old baronet is  WHEN YOU REQUIRE  POKER CHIPS  CIGARS  PLAYING CARDS  Remember you can get them from  S. J. MIGHTON  Aberdeen Block, Nelson, B. C.  Wilson & Harsh aw  PRAYING and  EXPRESS  a physical wonder���not less robust aud  energetic than Gladstone was at 78. And  mentally also he seems to be as strong as  ever. Tupper is not a back number.  Some of his political ideas may belong  more to a past generation than to the  present one* but iu his methods and in  spirit he is very much up-to-date. For  the present there is no Tory leader but  him, and those Tories who don't like him  will probably be obliged to follow him  through another campaign.  Mark Twain In the Old Days,  There are many miners in   Kootenay  who   had   their   first experience   underground at Virginia, Nevada, where Mark  Twain had his first experience as a newspaper   reporter.   Mark   was   playing  at  mining in  a little camp a hundred miles  or so south of Virginia City.   He wrote a  burlesque Fourth of July oration.   It began  with  these  words: "I was sired by  the great American eagle and borne by a  continental dam."   "Joe" Goodman, who  was then managing.editor of the Virginia  Enterprise, saw it and wrote him  that if  he was not making more money than a  certain  weekly salary would make him,  he had better quit mining and  become a  reporter on the Enterprise.   The first response was when Clemens walked into the  Enterprise   office.       He  had   a   roll    of  dirty   blankets   on   his  shoulder,  which  by    a    shrug    he   dropped.       He   was  not well dressed theu and never was well  dressed until he quit reporting and took  to the lecture platform.   Usually it- was  hard   to decide  whether his shirt  front  was linen with tobacco splashing.1?, or tobacco with here and there a suspicion of  linen.    His appearance   was always unkempt.   But he could  write droll things.  Some were as fine as anything he has ever  written since.   The life of Virginia City  from day to day was by his pen materialized for review next morning, either by a  real literary picture or a literary caricature,  while   his   drawling   conversation  was funnier than anything he ever wrote.

There is such a law in the United States,  arid it has worked well for over twenty  years. But just because it has been  adopted by the Americans, is probably  ��� the- reason it will not be adopted by the  so;l<.ns of this province. Yet, has not our  goyertiment merely adopted American  legislation in aqieHding the Placer Mining  $.ct to exclude aliens from its benefits?  J.vinj5N?i'DY the return of J.Fred Hume,  aided as it wtts by the votes lie received  from rhpn employed at the Silver King  mine,    is  distasteful   to   the    management     of    the     Silver     King     mine.  Miners     who     are   known     to      have  Voted  for   Mr.   Hume   have   been   discharged; thifij   too, at a time when  the  mine is reported short-handed.   If this is  tote, the sooner the mine management is  changed   the  better.    Mine  superintendents should be   made understand   that  this is a free country; that they have no  greater political rights than the men under them.   The mine superintendent has  the right to vote as he pleases; and the  men under him shall have, or it will not  be long until there will be no mine super  inteudents.

Girls iii their teens should discard the

which was well filled.   All the passengers
were ladies except the barrister whom I
have mentioned and who evidently considered that he had passed that stage of
life when he was compelled to give up his
seat to two hearty girls of about seventeen.   They evidently thought otherwise
andjbegan to drop hints about gentlemen
who kept their seats when ladies were
standing.   At Queen street the two seats
on   either  side   of   the   barrister   were
vacated    ancl   the'."girls   dropped   into
them   and  continued their conversation
across him.   Further up the car stopped
and a very generously proportioned lady
got on board.   Then the lawyer's time for
revenge came and he promptly  availed
himself of it.;   He. ro^e politely and re-

imposition"" of-this high tariff on tire con-

brings to light.a jSeciiliiar condition. For
some,years white men1 iraye been marry-
ijug into the tribes uhtii now there are
50;000 litfl'f and quarter breed, and white
Indians. To any gelf-respecfcing rfed man,
who values the preservation of his racial
purity, and who shrewdly sees ih the tactics of the paleface an effort to get hold of
the $3000 worth of tribal property which
comes to nearly every Chickasaw girl,
suclra; state of affairs must be truly humiliating:. At this rate it would not be
long before the Indian nations would be
obliteratediand ih their place would grow
a mOngrel breed which, as; is the ca..e lit
hybrids, would ab.orb all the bad and
hpnp of the gpbd properties,o£ the superior race. Viewed from thin standpoint,
the course of the Chickasaw legislature is
highly comiilehdable. Ib is to be doubted,
however^ if a $000 restriction will hold

The New Collar.
There is a new turnover collar which is
gaining in favor every day. It is very
high and straight. Some of these collars
have the edges of the turnover part perfectly square, while others are slightly
rounded; but all of them have a straight
piece going around the heck between the
inside aud the part that turns over, similar to that on the turnover collars Worn
by women last .surimier. These collars
are very comfortable, as there is nothing
about them which can cut into the neck,
no matter how high they are. For general wear they are becoming quite popular, though one never sees them in the
evening or on ceremonious occasions, for
the high, straight "choker" still holds
sway at such times.
The Newest Ties.
The really sensible pique stock is coming back again, with the difference that
its long gingham ends are not shaped and
interlined to fold into a four-in-hand or
Ascot knot, but are hemmed on the edge
and ties in a big breezy bowknot'with
ends falling nearly to the waist. One
charm of this fashion is that whoever
makes her own shirt waists at home can

easily whip together her own neckties
aud the laundress will havo no diiliculty
with peculiarities of shape. Wide spotted
ribbons, lengths of soft silk and white
lawn aro all material for the new ties,
and nothing will b« considered more fitting with a pink-striped shirt-waist than
a tie made of white or cream point d'es-
prit knotted in a very liberal front bow.
Stitched Bands.
A pretty way of using the machine
stitching which is in vogue is to apply it
to bands of satin and use (lie stitched
bands for trimming a cloth gown. The
hoops of stitched satin prove a wonderfully effective trimming either when they
are the same shade as the gown or black.
A gown of this description was of a rich
empire broadcloth trimmed with bands
of black satin stitched in black silk. The
rows of satin were arranged from the hem
to the waist on the skirt. Each band was
an inch in width and an inch of the cloth
showed between the bands. This gave
the effect of a striped skirt, the stripes of
satin and cloth alternating. The back
was laid in flat inside plaits, the bands
ending at the outer edge of the plaits.
With the skirt was worn a very short
tailor-made jacket that buttoned straight
up the front to the throat.
The Shape of a Corset,
If the shape of a corset is once gone the
corset might as well be thrown away, for
it owes its beauty to its, perfect shape.
To keep a corset in shape look to the
small bones. As soon as these are worn
or twisted or bent renew them. Get the
best of whalebone, the finest of narrow
steel ribs aiid the strongest of broad ribs.
Slip out the old bones and slip in the new
ones. In this way you will' keep a corset
very shapely to the end of-itsdays, which
will arrive only when the corset material
gives out. A corset may be laundered by
scrubbing it with soap bark and a toothbrush, or gently rubbing it with gasoline
to remove auy_spbts.d Nothing i^

Short speeces were made by Mr. Bostock  and "Governor" Hanson of Wasa.  Married at Revelstoke on the 13th,  Harry Campeau of Sandon and Miss Margaret Cavauaugh of Appleton, Wisconsin.  A petition is being circulated at the  Silver King nrine asking i'or the cancellation of the hotel license held by David  Morice at Fredericton. It is said that the  petition is berug engineered by .some of  the mining officials at the Silver King,  and that it is being freely signed by the  men employed at the company's mine.  The cuttiug off of the license held by  Morice would do away with a headquarters for miners who think as they please  and vote accordingly.  The tenders for the construction of the  Hudson's Bay Company's new building at'  the corner of Scauley and Baker streets  are expected to be in by Thursday, when  they will be forwarded to Winnipeg for  approval. Should the tenders be satisfactory a start will be made on the building at once.  Dr. LaBau is confined to his room with  an attack of congestion of the lungs.  Several cases of larceny have been reported during the past few days, in which  the contents of miners' cabins close to  Nelson have been stolen. In one or two  cases the thieves carried off everything  that could be moved.  The annual church parade of Nelson  Lodge No. 25, Knights of .Pythias, was  held yesterday forenoon to the Presbyterian church, where a special sermon  was preached by Rev. Mr, Frew.  Under instructions from the attorney-  general, an investigation will be held on  Friday into the Ainsworth disaster. All  pel-sons interested are requested to communicate with W. Bullock-Webster, chief  of provincial police at Nelson.  " Jacob Dover was on the street today,  after a three weeks' siege of la grippe.  He will leave for Montreal the latter end  of the week, and on his return will have  that comfort that single men so rarely  enjoy.  G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo was in Nelson  today.    He   has   not entirely   recovered  from his late spell of illness.  ��� John Elliot was in Winnipeg on Saturday, homeward bound.  J. H. Keeler has 500,000 feet of white  pine and fir logs at Deep creek, below  Bonner's. Ferry, ready to tow to Nelson  as soon as ice goes out of Kootenay river.  J.

The deceased was a typical  prospector, who had drifted west in'ther  early mining days of Nevada and.Arizona, where he made and lost several  ood stakes. "He was born in Roxburgh  township, in Ontario, and came west- 23  years- ago. During this time he has  mined and prospected in tlie' ivfesterii';  states, coming to British 'Cbl'u'mjpia .from  California in 1891.

Yet  th.re ar'e people in Nelson who do not  fav0r building any railway that is not a  branch of the Canadian Pacific. Today  there is a man in Nelsonin search of a site  on which to erect��� ore-samjJling works,  but he is a business man, entirely lacking  in sentiment. He wants a site that can  be reached by all the railways centering  at Nelson, and he will riot locate at Nelson unless he can obtain such a site. He  does not want to be bottled up as is the  Hall Mines smelter. There is such a site;  but it is dollars to doughnuts that he  does not get it.  After the Excitement...
