Provincial .-Lilimrj-  KOOTENAY  Has   a   Mineral   Output   of  Upwards   ot   One  Million    Dollars., Every    Month  In   The- Year  DAILY  EDITION:  F1KST YEAR-NO. 30.  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1899.  WEEKLY  EDITION:  SEVENTH  YEAR-NO   10  *  SHORT AND SWEET SESSION  or the Olty Council.  Last evening's session of the city eonn-  cil was ii short one.   The members  were  anxious to get to the lust political  meeting of the campaign, and consequently  matters which were not urgent were allowed to go over.      ________  '    Reports.  The report of the finance committee,  recommending the payment of a number  of accounts, whs adopted.  The report of the medical health officer  respecting the sanitary condition of the  city was laid over for another week.  They Don't Want the Water.  A communication was read from Messrs  Taylor & Hanningtou, on behalf of the  owners of the Elba mineral claim near the  Summit. They stated that they would  take proceedings to restrain the city from  carrying water over their mineral claim  in'any wav other than in a properly constructed flume.  Alderman Fletcher said that the allegations made iu the communication were  totally false, that there could be no damage done since there was a natural channel over the land. The communication  was filed.   Those Fire Insurance Rates.  A communication was read from A. W.  Ross, secretaty-treasurer of the fire  underwriters, touching upon the proposed  reduction in the local rates for fire insurance. He stated that a special meeting  of the Fire Underwriters'Association will  be convened within two weeks when the  question of the proposed reduction will  receive due consideration. A somewhat  similar communication was received from  G. W. Hob.orr. They were both received  and filed.    The Burial of Paupers.  The city clerk introduced  the question  of the burial of paupers.   He said that  two men had died in the Crickmay hospital, who had been in the city but a few  days. The men were from the Silver King  , mine, and had ruerely=corXe_to Nelson for-  treatment..  They had  died "in  theTcity  without means, and the corporation was  therefore obliged  to bury their bodies.-  The clerk said he had spoken to the gov-  -  eminent agent upon'thematter, and that  Mr. Turner had promised that in case of  -pauper burials, where it was-afterwards  found that there-was money belonging to  - the deceased, that the official administrator would discharge the debts in connec-  ' tion -with the burials first.    -   -  Alderman Fletcher said that 'while it  *  was gratifying to know that -Nelson was  - becoming known as a place at which good  medical treatment could be secured, there  was a danger that it would cost the city  a'great deal for pauper burials.  Alderman Hillyer said that the council  should look into the cases of the last two  paupers who had come from the Silver  King. The company made a practice of  collecting a hospital fee from all the men  in their employ. If'a man paid a hospital  fee regularly it should entitle him not  only to medical treatment but to a decent  'burial for his body after death.  Alderman Thomson agreed with the remarks of alderman Hillyer. He said that  railway contractors had to bury their  dead, and he thought that the same obligation .rested upon a company which had  collected"afhospital fee froth a -man dur-  _=ing_=his^lifei.=He=expi,essed=the=bpihion=  that it was a bluff'oh the part of the Hall  MineSi and the company should be given  to understand that it had to���bury its own  paupers.  The matter was referred to the city  "solicitor.   The Electric Light Transfer.  A communication from the city solicitor, touching upon the transfer of the  electric light plant to the city, was read.  It was aw follows: "In accordance with  your instructions to me, I have examined-  into the(legality of thetransfer from the  Nelson Electric Light Company to the  city of their real estate, plant and franchise and find as follows: That the resolution authorizing the sale was passed by  the directors at a director's meeting. In  my opinion they had no authority conferred on them to do so, and the resolution  should have been passed at a general  meeting of the shareholders called for the  purpose, in accordance with the provisions  of their act of incorporation. This can  yet be done, and the matter satisfactorily  arranged without causing much delay."  Alderman Hillyer said it was evident  that the majority of the members of the  present council were desirous of picking  holes in the work*accomplished by the  former council. Toe electric light company's plant was purchased by the old  council, and all the present council had to  do was to see that the litigation between  Dr. Arthur and the city over the same  was stopped.  Alderman Thomson said that it was  merely a question of removing what might  possibly be considered as a flaw in the  title which the light company gave to the  city. If the transfer from the light company to the city was not done regularly  some shareholder of the light company  might atta-ck the city and force the city to  pay tribute in order to perfect its title.  He said he for one wanted the electric  light matter settled, and in speaking as he had he did not wish  to cast any reflection whatever upon the  old council. The probability was that  neither the old council nor the light company wa�� aware of any irregularity in  the transfer until attention was lately  directed to the matter. The whole difficulty could be got over by calling a general meeting of the shareholders of the  light company and passing a resolution  to ratify the sale.  A resolution was moved by alderman  Hrllyer t<�� the effect that the city solicitor  communicate with the president of the  light company with a view to straightening out any irregularities in the transfer  proceedings.0 This was agreed to, aldermen Fletcher and McKillop not voting.  Sampler Company Wants a Bonus.  A communication was received from G.  M. McDowell, ou behalf of Jthe Slocan Ore  Purchasing Company, in which the council was informed that the company was  desirous of knowing what inducement the  council wotrld ofler for the erection of a  sampling works, the business of which  would consist in the purchasing, sampling  and forwarding of ores. <  As the council did not know much about  the Slocan Ore Purchasing Com pay, the  communication was referred to the finance  committee for report.  Work on the Flume Stopped.  Mayor Neelands informed the council  that the members of the public works  committee and himself had been.over the  flume line; and that it was the opinion  that work upon the flume should be  stopped for the present until the frost  leaves the ground. Another difficulty  was that the lumber required was not  ready, and by the time it was ready there  would be plenty of water from other  sources. '  Alderman Hillyer agreed wittt the  mayor that it was impossible to goon  with the flume at present, as there was  no lumber. It would be necessary to shut  down for six weeks in order that the lumber could be delivered upon the groundy  butonce the lumber was delivered the  flume could be finished in a short time.  Alderman Thomson said it wotrld be the  loth of March before all the lumber re-  .quired would be delivered, if the present  rate was kept up.. It would therefore be  better to deliver the lumber on the ground  from the mills and wait until the frost  was out of the ground before completing  the flume. By following this course' a  better flume could be constructed and ,uo  power would be lost as.owing to the past  delays there would be plenty of water before the flume could be finished.  "  A resolution suspending the"c work was  then moved by alderman Fletcher,second-  ed by alderman Hillyer, and in the interval, the.lumber..will be. distributed, over;  the grouud in accordance with the in-  struetionsof the city engineer."  - ,   Referred to Public Works Committee.  -. The communication from D. C. McMorris  asking the council to open up the alleyway in   the   rear  of , his   property-was  referred to the public works committee.  All Sorts of-Rumors Rife.  ' [Moyie Loader, February lth-l  The presence here this  week of Leslie  Hill, one of the owners of the Moyie mine,  II. -Bell-Irving, the wealthy Fraser river  salmon cahner,  and A.  F.  Schneider, a  New York mining expert, led the people  to believe that a mining deal of considerable magnitude was on.   All sorts of rumors were rife.   Some had it that a deal  was on for the purchase of the St. Eugene,  while others were confident that a deal  was being made whereby the St. Eugene,  Moyie and Lake?Shore were all to be gob-  bhsfi/up fey^^y^ndi^ejyiaJi^pxop.osed^tbi  "Work all three uiineft from the tunnel of  the Ealce Shbi-ej   But the truth Of the  niatter seems to be that there is a deal on  for.one propertyWthd Moyie.   Tlie Bell-  Irvings have become interested in this  property,    having   recently    purchased  the    interest     held     by    F.    Ilouten,  one   of    the    original    locators.      The  owners are now making a deal with an  English syndicate, and for that purpose  the property is being examined by��� Mr.  Schneider, tlie company's expert,    ifhere  is hot yet? sufficient snow on the road between the St. Eugene mine! and town for  hauling ore* consequently this work has  been delayed to quite an extent.   However, an   attempt   will be   made to   put  snow on the bare portions on the road  and use extra teams to make up for lost  time;   The  owners  of  the  Lake  Shore  mine are pushing development work on  their property, and taking out plenty of  ore for shipment besides.   The tunnel is  being driven iu farther, which will make  room   for  the  additional force   of   men  which will soon be be put on.  MANY   LIVES   SAVED.  Sessional Indemnity Reduced.  The most sensational feature in the  estimates brought down in the Ontario  legislature was in the figures furnished  for members' fees. The members have always received $600 per session, but this  year the estimates provide but $500 each  for them. But this is not all;���' for the  mileage rate is to be cut as well. The  rate is 10 cents per mile, and usually  amounts to $2000. Much objection has  been raised to the payment of the mileage, on the ground that it was really a  bonusi as every member receives a pass  from the railways. This session not more  than half that amount is in the estimates,  which seems to mean the members will be  cut down from 10 cents per mile to five  cents. These two reductions will cause  all kinds of trouble, because the members  on neither side of the house are anxious  to have their incomes reduced. Another  question which is coming up is the position of the members of the service during  last summer's session. From the speaker  down these officials are paid by the session, and they demand their full amount.  Remarkable Cures Made by a Famous Virginia  Madstone.  "I sold the other day the most curious  estate I ever heard  of," said  William 1?.  Lynn,   a   prominent  citizen   of   Loudon  county, Virginia, to a  Washington Star  reporter.     "I   have   curried   this   estate  around in my pocket for the best part of  the year.   So far as I know,  there is but  one other piece of property at all  like it  in the world.   And what is still stranger,  perhaps, while I had a   bona   fide offer  from a New.York millionaire to manage  this estate for a period of years in. suclv/'a  way as to yield the heirs a handsome income, which would  have capitalized the  property at about $40,000, oneof the heirs  bid it iu at public sale for $300.  -This estate was the famous Upperville madstone,  which has been in the hands of the Fred  family for over 150 years.   A second bid.  or what we call under Virginia law, a 10  per cent bid had been made and the stone  will be auctioned again.   But I think it  will remain in the family.   As its name  indicates,  the peculiar property of this  stone is its apparent appetite for the virus  to be found iu the wound made by the  bite of a dog,  a  snake or any venomous  animal.  "The stone was brought to Virginia iu  1740 by Joshua Fred, who was a well-to-do  farmer in Warwickshire, England, arid  became an important landowner in Fauquier county. By his wish his descendants had clung to thisstoue as a priceless  heirloom,'and I am proud to say that  their use of it has always reflected credit  upon the good, old-fashioned hospitality  and kindliness characteristic of all good  Virginians. It was well known all over  the country that anybody might go. tp  the Fred farm with any unfortunate -who  had been bitten by a dog, and enjoy :a  certain cure without cost. For ahundred  years none of the Freds would permit  any oue who was-cured <in this way by  the madstone to pay a farthing, even i'or  board, or lodging or horse feed. In later  years the vicissitudes of peace and war  having somewhat affected the fortunes of  various members of the family, it became  the practice to allow visitors who came to  use the madstone to pay what they  pleased for their treatment and, for'the  care of their teams. Beyond this, however-, no charge whatever was made for  scores of most remarkable cures. , -  "A journal was kept by the various  members of the family who had charge of.  the madstone, in^ which-was entered-t-kcV  hame and age of every person on wbom/it  was used, and the character of the wound  treated. The entries-in this'book, made  in the' quaint handwriting, of member  after member of tlie family, the most of  whom have long since turned to dust in  their graves, are nrost interesting. -.  "While the stone was in my possession  I had occasion several times to use it upon  persons who were brought to me in great  agony of'mind over wounds they had received from the bites of rabid dogs. The  last case occurred just a few days before  the sale of the stone. - A young boy was  brought to my house late at night, who  had been bitten on the wrist. The wound  was an uely one, and the father, was in  great distress of mind for fear hydrophobia would set in. I placed the stone on the  boy's wrist at about 10 o'clock and went  to bed. The father stayed up and took  care of the boy. At 2 o'clock irr the morn- ���  ing. he said, the stone let go. The.boy  was then sound asleep. The father-  placed the stone, as I told him to do. in a  giassjjf^milk,_on.jvhjch, when Lsaw-it-in  "the morning, there was a thick green  scum. This seemed to be the usual result  in all such cases. Tlie stone was never  known to let go ttntil it had extracted all  the poison, and, on being placed in a glass  of warm water or milk, discharged a  greenish liquid, which physicians who  saw the operation have tola me was undoubtedly poisonous matte:- caused by  the bfte of the rnbjd animal.  "The stone itself is perhaps an inch  long by three-quarters wide, and is of a  velvety, grayish brown Color-. Years ago  it wM accidentally broken ifi two, and  the jeweler who placed a gold band  around it to hold it together' has told rt.e  that the inside was a little darker than  the outside, and was arranged in concentric layers.  TRAILS   IMPASSABLE.  Twenty Feet of Snow Between  the  Coast and  Atlin.  A letter from Skagway says that that  town    was    experiencing    a   temporary  "boom" through the arrival of passengers  for Atlin and Dawson.    "Such a delivery  of humanity so unexpectedly,"  to quote  the words of the   writer,   "just  simply  raised   prices   to  boom   figures.     Hotels  doubled rates and drinks sold for 25 cents  or five for a dollar-.   The Americans here  are furious over the alien bill aud threaten  allkiuds of retaliation."   Speaking of the  evils of the present law, the  writer says  it would be a desirable change to abolish  all  agency   privileges.   Continuing,   the  letter   reads:   "Brownlee's   party, 11  in  number, has just left for Atlin.   They go  by train, which is 11 miles only from Skagway.   From   parties   who are returning  every hour, we learn that the track and  trail between the end of the track to Ben-  net are completely blocked  with railway  supplies, miners' outfits and general merchandise  and snpplies for Dawson  and  Atlin,   the snow being  reported   to   be  20   feet   in   depth   this   eutire distance.  Only dog trains and snowshoes can be  used  to get through.   There is no trail  from Log Cabin to Atlin except by what  is known as the Fan Tail,  and  owing to  the great depth of snow and thin ice over  Lake Atlin no horses or heavy freight can  possibly be moved.   I think Brownlee will  do well if he reaches Atlin City  by the  middle of  March.     "There are a, great  many   people,   too,   between   Atlin and  Dawson. A great many are leaving Skagway to avoid the extortionate charge for  living. ''- A man who made his  way out  from Atlin City told me that everything  was at a standstill at Atlin, a couple of  hu'udre'd fellows sitting around in huts  trying to sell imaginary claims at from  $5 to $500.",  In a second letter the same writer says  "he had just spent an hour talking with  Messrs. Carman and Lilley ot Vancouver,  who had just arrived from Teslin lake,  where they left oh January 4th, coming  straight    through    thectAtlin    district.  They wereln the employed!" the Dewdney  outfit all summer between Glenora and  Teslin,    and,   having  heard   "of  a  pass  through  the mountains hear the head of  Teslin lake, concluded to come to Skagway.   They  found, a  camp  of   men  at  Sucker lake, a tributary of which runs in-  .to��� Surprise lake ,..iu-the  Atlin   distric..-  *Gold was there found and the discoverers  -���were wintering there to commence work  .early in the spring.   "At the head of Surprise lake they also found a camp of six,  men   wintering.   They came down Surprise to Pine and Atlin Cities and at different points found camps of men wintering,  aud everything, even  the mountain  sides, staked^ and re-staked.   Some parts  of   Pine    creek   had    been   staked    ofT  several times, and' in fact hardly a spot  could be found that had not been staked.  The police had given notice to discontinue  all   building  in  Atlin    and   Pine Creek  towns.   A person named Vaughan was at  Atlin and has a number of men staking  out claims for some big Vancouver company.     He claimed to have staked   200  claims.   Both shores of Atlin are staked  for a mile  or more   back.    Mr.  Carman  said he left William McCulloch, the well-  known  assayer of Nelson, at Atlin.    The  latter also went through from the Stikine  and is coming out to Skagway."  petent to hand-sort ore gives, in the great  majority of instances, any attention to  this portion of the work?  Aw a rule the miner is allowed to have  his own sweet will in this labor, and his  owrt sweet will is too often to do that  which is easiest instead of that which is  best. This is but one kind of waste, and  the commonest one, of bad management,  where scores might be mentioned. It is  not all mines that require the constant  services of an assayer, but a good many  more than receive them do require them,  and would find them the most valuable of  all possible investments.  KASLO   NEWS   NOTES.  Were Never Knpwn to Get Anything: Correct.  The following is a fair sample of the  "rot" that appeared in the Coast papers  regarding the election that took place  today. It is from the Vancouver World  of the 10th:  -   A STRAXGK  AFFAItJ,  A correspondent, writing from Nelson,  states that there is something exceedingly  peculiar concerning the conduct of the  returning officer, John A. Turner, iu connection with the polling sub-divisions of  the Nelson riding in the pending by-  election contest. At the last general  election there was a polling subdivision at  Kuskanook, in the vicinity of which there  are from 30 to GO voters; but for some  reason, which demands explanation, and  which many believe to be an exceedingly  hazy action on the part of those who have  the fixing of the polling subdivisions in  hand, this polling subdivision has been  obliterated, and the electors in the neighborhood of Kuskanook will be put to great  expense in going to Nelson and recording  their votes, It is to be hoped that Mr.  Turner will be able to give a satisfactory  explanation of his conduct in this respect.  Ashe was agent for Mr. Hume at the  election held in July last, there will be  those who will'not be slow in asserting  that he is displaying extreme-partisan  conduct in connection with the fixing of  the polling subdivision..    H  CAUSE   OF   FAILURE.  Want   of   (good  Management   Ruins  Many   a  Mine.  The question is often aSked: "What is  the most corririjon cause of failure in  mining ?" The majority of answers probably are: "Want of a good miue on  which to Work," says the Mining aud  Scientific Press of San Francisco. But  one who is a close observer and has obr  served the methods of mine management  in���'���many regions might question whether  a better answer might not be: "Want of  good mine management." So many instances are remembered where failures  cart be attributed' to this cause alone that  the answer is at least worthy of consideration.  Bad management takes such a .multitude of-.ha.ue_ that it is almost impossible  to describe it, unless it is described in the  general term "ignorance of mining." Its  constant form is seen in the wasting of  ore. A general proof of the facts is found  in the hundreds of ore dumps which have  been hand sorted over and over at a profit,  and there are .hundreds yet untouched  that will pay handsome returns. There  is au old saying that a workman can be  none by his chips, and with equal truth  it can be said a bad mine manager can be  known by his dumps. One thing that is  indispensible to a mine manager is an  appreciation of the necessity of thoroughly understanding the nature and value of  his ore. He may not be able to understand  the ore himself, but if he appreciates its  importance he can employ someone who  does understand it to take charge of the  necessary work.;  The world sees the evidence of waste in  the dumps that lie on the surface, but  there is a still greater source of waste  that is hidden from the public in the dark  stopes of the mine. Every practical man  knows how often the ore is knocked down  iu the stopes and there partially sorted,  and the supposed waste left upon the  stulls. If ore sorted in the daylight loses  much of its value iu the waste, what is  the loss liable to be in the dark, narrow  and cramped stopes ?y Who that is com-  Kaslo, Feb. 13.���E. J.

The re-location of the Iron Hand is recorded by A. P. Beaudy. The claim is located on the north side of Kaslo creek  and on the east side Of the mouth of Lyle  creek. It was transferred by the locator  to the Hall Mines, Limited; by bill of sale  uuder date of the 11th instant.

TUESDAY .FEBRUARY 14,   1899  The Review of Sandon wishes it hadn't  used its mighty influence, in July last, to  oust from power its Conservative friends.  We imagine the appearance in the Pay-  streak of an atlvertisment signed by John  Keen, assessor and collector of the province, has had something to do with the  Review's change of heart.  The amendments to the Elections Act  are all in the right direction. Soldiers  and sailors who happen to be on station  in British Columbia during election  should not be entitled to vote. They  have no interests in the country. But  the wisest amendment is the one depriving officeholders of the right to vote. No  officeholder should be permitted to have  any voice in selecting his masters.  One of the results of the election today  will be the removal from office of several  notorious politicians from soft berths in  the court house at Nelson. They will be  given a chance to be politicians, but not  at the expense of the people.  J. Roderick Robertson and, W. A.  Macdonald should be "proud -of the four  men they, "boosted" intotlie^city council.  Last year, at this time, Nelson-=twas  being improved. '.Was it because'Nelson  then had a city council made up of pro-  gressive���business mem?', "��� ,-:.!  '    The election is over, arid  the only dis-'  appointed ones are the defeated candidate  and tlie men who backed him  with  more,  money than judgment;_'-  The. present. city council is different  from the old city council.

[Glasgow Mail, January 21st.]      y ''���-  .William   Johnson,   alias    "Harry   the  'Valet,'-'-&_., aged JG, who stole the dowager duchess "of Sutherland's jewels from a.  ;railway carriage in Paris, was on  Wed-  '   nesday    brought    up    at   the   London  V'kessipn., .Clerk.etwe'll, for sentence.

He was absolutely  penniless and of no occupation.   She wail woman of means, and she supported him  and'supplied'.him with money.   However,  at about the date of the robbery she had  separated from JohnsOn  in  consequence  Of their numerous quarrels.   She received  a letter saying that he now had  all she  'required, and asked her to see him.   She  made no reply, but he saw her in a cab iii  Paris,  and   following her home showed  her a large quantity of valuable jewelery,  and told her that she had stolen it, and to  whom it belonged..  Fascinated  with the  jewels, the woman allowed  the roan  to  come   back to her.     Some adorned her  neck while she slept that, night,  but the  next morning it was handed over to Johnson, and the  prisoner corroborated this  statement with the remark,    "Yes, and I  had a very hard job to get it back." There  could be no doubt that he had at that  time   all   the    stolen   property   in   his  possession,  and   was acting on  his own  behalf and not with  others,  who might  have shared in the plunder;.'While sitting  in the room   with   the  woman   with  the  jewelery iu  his pocket a French police  officer came in. looked around, gaped, and  went away.  About October 22nd Johnson  and .the   woman came back to England,  though   not together,  and  the. prisoner  beamed to have known exactly what to do  with this class of property, which any. ordinary person would   find  exceedingly  ninit-ult to get ndoi, tor the jewels were  of extraoidinary worth.   He went to a  Mr.  Levy,  who  describes  himself,   said  counsel,   as   a   general  dealer, living in  Hackney.   Levy had known the prisoner  for about five months on and off by the  name of Jackson, and he came  to him at  Duke's   place,   Hound-ditch,   which   Mr.  Levy said was a Sunday morning market  for  diamouds.    Counsel   supposed   they  were   spread   out   like   costers'   wares.  (Laughter.)    The   prisoner   asked   Levy  whether Ire  could   get eight   diamonds,  two brilliants, an emerald and a pearl  made up into a pin, ring and a stud, and  Levy, who did not know where the prisoner lived, accepted from him the valuable stones without giving him any receipt  or telling where he (Levy) lived.   Levy  took the   stones   to  a  working  jeweler  named  Headland,   and   when  they   had  beeu made up as desired Levy returned  the articles to the prisoner at the Sunday  market.   On October 24 the prisoner received from a Mr. Hinton, who keeps the  Brown Bear,Worshipstreet(alsostrangely  enough, remarked Mr. Muir, in business  in Hattou Garden as a glass letter maker,  he-says), a cheque for ��500,  which  was  cashed into bank-notes traced to the prisoner.   Mr. Hinton was a witness.   He explained that Johnson���-known  to him as  Jones���had frequented his house as a customer.   Jones was fond of two things���  whiskey and champagne, and when he  was not  drinking   whiskey    he    drank  champagne by.the bottle.   His name being  Jones,   continued   counsel,   and  his  drinking champagne, Mr. Hinton supposed  he was an eminently respectable person,  so, when Jones announced that ire had  ��500 in gold in his pockets���alleged part  proceeds of some of the jewels���and would  like to change it into notes,  Mr.  Hinton  said, "Oh certainly.-' and  went into the  parlor, and the ��500 iu gold was counted  out,   and   the   publican   parted   with   a  cheque  in  exchange,   knowing   nothing  about diamonds, emeralds, or rubies, although he was in business in Hatton Garden.   Mr. Faulkner, a jeweller at Upper  St. Martin's Lane was another gentleman  connected  with  the case.   The   prisoner  had    been a customer   of   his for seme  five     years,    and   he.  only"   knew   him  as     "Harry"���the     name     by     which  he   was   well   known to the police was  "Harry the Valet."    Mr. Faulkner was  asked to make up ".some', earrings,  a pin  and a stud, with stories supplied by Johnson,   consisting of brilliants  and pearls.  These  articles,  too,   were  made  by Mr.  Headland.    The woman  who had  lived  with Johnson returned  to Brighton and  was.joined there by Johnson, with whom  she'deelined any. further connection, telling him  that he was a thief.    She had  been to Scotland Yard  before that,  and  made a statement, and she told Johnson,  who struck her.   He. finally came to a  house, No. 5 Cathear. Road,. South Kensington, where detective-inspectors Dew,  . Dennie, Froest of Scotland-Yard, arrested,  him, and . found .in his"' possession about  ��800 worth out of ihe ��25,000 jewels stolen.  It was perfectly obvious that Johnson was  a skilled thief who did not waste his/time  on sinall game.  'In-1891 JohnsOn^ was dealt  with at Bow Street tor-stealing a cOa't-'in  , the" Hoi born restaurant, the property of  a. diamond mercharit, whose' pOcketbook,  contained a ��25 note. ;In fact, he seemed to  be very fond of diamond  merchants: ':��� On  April2, 189_. he got >ix  months' -hard; labor for stealing, a 'lady's   dressing, case  from a railway carriage at Charing Cross  station, and after beingiacquitted on another charge he went to Monte Carlo and  made acquaintanceship with the iriside'of  a ���-Fr=each;rpnson'|for;*,Mteen . cuonthsytor  8tealijngf-o^ ;Fbibi''''-he,'.DT^a|ti  fiveT-yeSr^  tioiifjS'f the>polic"e,ibuti'.nothing�� had coiire  q_tt.��>  ���������"    "���".;; * "������*���** ,../'"������"���   .

The
Experiences  of Two  Prospectors In   the
Ghilliwack; .fountains.
Last summer two prospectors, mamed
*&   William Barron'ahd Robert Parker, were
prospecting in the Chearu mountains on
the headwaters of Chilliwack river, when
one of them (Parker) had an experience
that he does   not care   to have repeated.
His partner tells the story in the Columbian of New Westminster:
It was not at Mount Baker that Robert
Parker got hurt. As I am his partner, Ic
can state you the whole truth of. the accident. It was the east end of the range of
the Cheam mountains. The Chearir range
lies on the northwest side of the head
waters of Chilliwack river, where the accident happened, and I shall remember it
till my dying day.
We arrived on the 26th of July, at the
foot of the mountain.   On the following
morning,   we    ascended   the   mountain.
While walking over the snow in a deep
•; canyon, Parkeri slipped, and slid about
/fifty  yards, before  lie came   to a  hole,
where  he  disappeared   from   my  view.
Then I scrambled to the place where he
fell.   It was a terrible sight to look at.   I
could not see him for some  time," till 1
pushed; mywaybetween the rocks and
the snow, which was forty feet high, and

tree. On my return I found him having a
lively time with mosquitoes and flies,
which came near getting the best of him.
We camped there for four days.
Ou the following day we thought we
would make a move. We did so. I
packed blankets and grub and would go
ahead, say one hundred yards, and then
go back for Parker. The poor fellow
could bear his weight on his sore leg, but
could not lift it from the ground. I had
to take his sore leg and lift it to make a
step. But when we came to level ground
it was not so bad. But the climbing overlying timber was a great trial to him.
Sometimes I would be pulling him by the
head, sometimes feet foremost, but
mostly feet first; it seemed: the most
handy, and any way to get there. Both
of us were determined not to give in.
It took us twenty days from the time
that Parker got hurt till I got him to the
doctor at Chilliwack. We were fifty miles
from civilization, when we arrived at the
first rancher's, at the foot of Chilliwack
mountain.   When   we arrived there  we
Eut Parker in a spring wagon, and brought
im to Dr. Henderson, who dressed his
wounds without charge, and gave him a
letter to the Royal Columbian Hospital.
The doctor, besides, offered him funds towards his expenses down. Thanking him
for his most gentlemanly offer.
Parker is not the only one suffering
from the trip. I, his partner, through
the effects of heavy lifting and hardships,
was obliged to go to the hospital. I stayed
at Sumas Prairie for two months after
Parker went to the hospital, still getting
worse all the time. So we are both of us
in the hospital together.
