Nelson has now what she never had before���an efficient pjjundkeeper and dog-  tax collector.   Give the devil his due.  The first issue of the Kootenay Mining  Standard from its new home in Rossland  has reached Nelson. In it notice is given  all who desire to borrow money that they  can secure the same upon applying to D.  R. Young.  As soon as the plans can be prepared,  the Parsons Produce Company will commence work on their projected buildings  at Nelson. The buildings, which will cost  between $5000 and $0000, will be completely fire-proof and built of stone. The  main building will be 40x00 feet, And the  Where She Thought .She Had Lost It and  Where It Was Found Two WeekB Later.  aTwo weeks ago Mrs. Roomer was in a  state of indignation because the landlord  in whose house she occupied the front  room up two flights had refused to make  her a present of a new latchkey.

She took sortie bills from the palm of her  left glove, and something tinkling dropped oh: the stone-flagged floor.  "Isn't this your key?" said the landlord,  stooping to pick it tip.  "Oh, my!

At the Nelson undertaking parlors today were the bodies of three men, who up  till the period of their last illness were  employed at the Silver Kin�� as miners.  Their names were Frank Berendt, John  Whitehead and John McFarland. They  were victims of pneumonia. The first  named was a member of the Masonic order  and of the Oddfellows. He was employed  at the Silver King mine for the past three  or four years, and will have a Masonic  funeral tomorrow.  Fisheries of Some Value Not Worked  the Islands of the Sulu Oroup.  In the picturesquely miscellaneous collection of Sultans, active volcanoes, rajahs,  Dyak pirates, and so forth, hindud over  to the United States in the Pacific as one  result, of the Spanish war, are the important pearl fisheries attached to the  Sulu Islands���pearl fisheries that, since  the decline of those of Ceylon and the  Parsian Gulf, divide with the north coast  of Australia the reputation of being the  most valuable iu the world.  The Sulu pearl grounds have for some  timebeen controlled by men or companies  with large capital, of which the chief is a  great Loudon jewelry firm. These capitalists equip and send out fleets of from 20  to 30 moderate-sized schooners upon  annual cruises, and employ in the pursuit,  besides European officers and supercargoes, many hundreds, if not thousands,  of native divers.  It may be information to many that the  chief revenue of the pearl fishing industry is derived not from the pearls���a very  uncertain contingency ��� but from the  pearl shells, or mother-of-pearl, which  brings in the market $100 a ton and upward. As an illustration of this, while  the West Australian pearl fisheries netted  in one j^ear $400,000 from the shells the  returns from the find of pearls was valued  at a little more than $150,000, or about  one-third. In this respect, while , the  pearls found in. the Sulus are of the finest  quality, the mother-of-pearl is sometimes  characterized by a yellowish tint, vvhich  renders it less valuable commercially than  that obtained on the adjacent Australian  banks.  The actual diving operations are carried  chiefly   by   the natives,  though of  late  .years Europeans, with diving apparatus,  have in some instances been employed.  Theformer method is simplicity itself.  The diver being denuded of his clothes  and provided with a knife anda small net  bag in  which to gather the shells,  and  having a forty-pound stone attached to  hisifeet, draws a deep breath, and is let.  rapidly down by a rope into the transpar-:;  ent^water .i^Theadepfl^  !d iyingiJis ^general 1 y^:c^Vr^^^  thirtyv .to-if b^JBy^fee^"'-th%x^h^de��pf.h,s��;h^K  ejgh-5rienefr��hay^  tUvwhstanfc^s".^^  ^diver^quiekly. pV6ceea3Mf6^teiit%"._ien?.liellsi"  from_tlie-rgcks;in^his_ neighpqrh^d^  ^hil%:^l|ihg-thisSbJag*rejma^  :fqr^rp'eribd "(1f^^  il'iWhile-Vth'us^enga^^^  sometimesjSubjecti. tqs tho #*attacks,s=or;i�����  is.h��ai5k*-:ib,u^l-5i��y��find*afa0dia^lierieh4nJ3.  lu.th- exhausting^naturesotltheir - \Vork^  c*aiTied��pn,��betieathf{the^Wter^s^  tropics; Theiriiyes'arefgenerallyAoLshort!

Moving the Courts.  [VictoriagolMiliif..'iVbriijiry Il.lt,)  The gov.rnmeutintends to ask the legislature fpr authority to have Maiularrd  appeals heard in Vancouver. Whether  or not this is the first step towards the  entire removal of the court from Victoria  we do not know, but it is a step that cannot be defended. If it is right to have  appeals heard at Vancouver', it is also  right to have them heard at Nelson. That  the court should shift from place to place  is a novelty in this country. Some years  ago an effort was madein New Brunswick  to provide for the hearing of eertaiu appeal cases at St. John, instead of Freder-  icton, the capital. St. John is about six  times as large as Fredericton, and the  very great majority of the cases coming  before the court originate in St. John or  that neighborhood. Strong political influence was brought to bear to secure the  removal, but nothing came of it, the conclusion being reached thatthe capital was  the proper place for the supreme court to  hold its sessions. It may be mentioned  that the distance between Fredericton and  St. John is about the same as between  Victoria and Vancouver, so that in thin  respect the cases stand ou the same  footing. "   Glove Contest Arranged;  San Francisco, Feb. 17.���Representatives of "Kid" McCoy and "Joe" Choynski  have signed articles for a glove contest,  the fight to take place under the auspices  of the National club of this city. The  men go into training at once.   ,:  Fencing: In Texas Has Decimated the Roaming  Herds of Former TimeB.  (from the Galveston Nowk.J  The wild horses which used to roam the  Texas prairies are about all gone. I asked  au old resident what had become of them,  and he told me that only a very few remained, and that they were in; the large  pastures, and that they were being killed  as often as a shot could be had at them.  I asked him the reason for this destruction, and he said that they were worthless in the first place, and in the second  they stole other horses  which were good  and carried them off with them.   He in-  fomied me also that of all the wild animals a horse or mule which had  formerly  been under the dominion of man was the  wildest when once it became part of a  wild herd.   The stallions of the wild herd  were  always   ambitious   to   keep   their  "bunch" filled, and would steal a mare or  horse or even a mule from the settlements  or cow ranches when the occasion presented itself.   When once a tame horse or  la mule got with a wild herd he became  the wildest aud most cunning of them all.  As the wire fences went up the territory  of the wild horse contracted.:  Finally, all  that remained were in the large pastures.  I was   told   that   before the  pastures  came it was the custom to " walk down "  the wild herds and reduce them to servitude.   One man I met here told  me how  this "walking down" was done.   He said  that the wild herd which one was determined  to capture always had a certain  range. 'This range was known from men  who  scouted  on   the   prairies.   For -instance,-, one   man   may   have   seen   the  "bunch," for that is  what   the   herd is  called, up near some  particular point in  the northwest of the Panhandle.   Another   ranger   may  have   seen  the   same  "bunch" fifty miles southeast ot where  the first man saw it.   Others may have  seen it along the route  between the two  points. -/"    ���  'AThus it would be concluded that the  range was between the two points'men-  tioued. Four or five men would enter the,  expedition to walk down the "bunch."

But, so said my informant, when the  work is done and every horse taken, the  pursuers ar'e uua_iimous in their verdict  that the gain, was not worth .tfet'e labor  expended, for the horses taken are a  measly set and never good for anything..  "Creasing" means shooting the animal  just below the mane, not low enough to  break the neck, arid yet low enough $0  that a -hock siilTficieht tp bring down the  aiiirual will be inflicted. It requires the  best markmanship to dp this,, and as the  distdii.e at which the shooting must be  done is usually great, very few animals  have been taken in this way.

And thereby hangs  an amusing tale. D. C; McGregor and  "Lardo Jack" McDonald, prominent Liberal politicians and supporters qf Mr.  Farwell, undertook to head off as many of  these staunch voters as might be possible,  and so hied themselves away by an early  morning boat. They got off at Proctor's  L. nding and a waited the prey, which never  appeared. How they occupied the time  while three independent electors cast their  votes for Hume, and the intervening  hours when they hadn't anything else to  do, is not told. Doubtless tlrey ruminated  upon the frailty of human knowledge and  the reliability of the innocent tip which  they received of the destination of captain Campbell and his good ship. The  victims have had to endure a good deal of  good-natured "jossing."  Foreman Stephenson came down from  the True Blue on Wednesday. He reports  that at the bottom of the winze, which is  being sunk from the inner end of the  tunnel, they have struck some very promising ore, but that it will be a few day's  further work to develop the amount. The  True Blue is being developed by the Hall  Mines, Limited, under a bond.  There was a rumor current also that the  workmen on the Montezuma.on the south  fork of Kaslo, had struck a quantity of  valuable ore, but it was impracticable to  trace the report to a reliable source.  G. O. Buchanan, who has been ill for a  fortnight, is improving, but has not yet  been able to leave the house.  J. E. Mitchell of the Charleston mine,  who has been some time at the hotel  Slocan, is improving. He is able to leave  his room and move about the house, but  has not yet ventured out of doors.  G. A. Carlsen of this city, who has a contract for three miles of-the Nelson" & Bed-  lington railway, came down from his work  on Tuesday. He reports that he has about  120 men at work and is making fair progress with his rock work. Between his  work and the boundary the- contractors  are all pushing work as rapidly as possible.

Mr.   Johnson. has a  bond on the Tamarack   and  Suleitelnra  claims, which adjoin  the Surprise, and is  engaged in developing the-properties.   A  tunnel has been driven a short distance  on the Surprise, and it is now proposed to  drive this tunnel so as to be of.service iu  developing the properties in which one of  the parties is more immediately, interested.

At the meeting of the city council on  Wednesday evening water commissioner  Kane reported that 11 service pipes in  different parts of the city were frozen,  and an additional 13-were liable to freeze  up any time. Pie estimated the cost of  opening up the trenches and sinking the  service pipes of those already frozen up  to a sufficient depth, with the necessary  goosenecks and curb cocks, at $308.  Should the other endangered pipes freeze  up he estimated an additional expenditure of $90. His report was referred to  the water committee for report at the  next meeting.         .

The council of Kaslo has received an offer from the Kootenay Electric Company  for the installation of electric lamps for  the new city building. The offer was  deemed sufficiently reasonable, but the  light con1 mittee was instructed to negotiate with the company for more reasonable terms for the light needed. Nelson  has no such troubles.

FRIDAY ..FEBRUARY   17,1899  The bill introduced by attorney-general  Martin to amend the Supreme Court Act  should be defeated.   It is vindictive legislation.     The., members, from   Kootenay  should defeat it.   There should be but one  place at which appeals to the full court  should be heard, and that place should be  the capital of the province.   It is so in all  other provinces iu Canada, and it is so in  all states in the Republic to the south.  Mainland and Island jealousies should be  allowed to die out; but just as long as  legislation like the supreme court bill is  attempted will the feeling of hatred last  between the people of the two sections of  the '..���.province.

'  In a long depression of the ground at EI  Caney, a kind of lane bank-protected,  there lay a number of soldiers wearing  tags and ends of uniforms. Some were  regulars; some were volunteers. Very  few, iudeed, boasted a blouse. Some had  on blue shirts, but a large number were  in undershirts and trousers, so irresistible  had been the impulse to throw away  every possible weight on^themarch. But  their clothes did not matter. The men  had been hauled in from the jungle, where  they had fallen by dozens before the  Mauser bullets, while as yet they were  unable to advance and return the"tire.'  Some were badly hurt, some mortally,  and some were dead. There they lay together waiting for the doctors with .magnificent' equnaurity, for the affair had  been sudden and the doctors not yet up to  the front.

Them eyes made  the rookies afraid. Say, did you ever hear  tell of the evil eye? It's rot, of course.  All the same Sulky Sam had the evil eye.  Way they found put was at Fort Laramie  on the road up,        .  "Topmy Ctlrrdli���Applets Carroll, 'cause  of his cheeks���got boozed ^at the post  trader's and came back to the camp gay.

That wouldn't have matternd, but  this 'ere beast seemed to like to see fellers  suffer or in trouble���enjoyed it, took an  interest in it, damn him, liked to look ou.  So one of them rookies got his ankle broke  hosing after jackrabbits near camp, and  there was au offsir went out with Sam  and another man and a blanket to carry  him in. The rookia was in measly agony  and Sam grinned. ^T'other fellow says he  wasgrinningall the time.: 'Offsir makes  a litter of the" blanket and two poles aud  orders the men to walk gently, 'cause it  was rough travelling. Did Sulky Sam  walk carefully ? He walked half drunk  and went out of his road a yard to find a  rock to trip over. The rookie screamed  out.  " 'Be careful my man,' says the offsir.  "Soon the rookie screams out again and  curses Sam.  " 'You'ro an awkward" lout,' says the  offsir.    'Be careful.'  "Rookie screams again.  " 'You did that on purpose !' yells the  offsir, and makes them lay the rookie  down, kicks Sam hard and takes Sum's  place himself. What happened? Off-sir  shot a deer on the march next day; tried  to load it on a mule, and was kicked all to  pieces. Sulky Sam hung round while  .. tir.y was dressing him on the, ground,  pretending to help, but his sneer and his  eyes and the way he enjoyed himself was  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.

So the rookies was afraid of  him. Everything that displeased that  yellow devil was sure to be revenged very  soon. Why, a rookie growled at him for  not bringing in his fair share of wood to  camp one night. Sam grinned and looked  at him, and next day a wagon wheel  rolled over the rookie's foot. There was  a heap of accidents in that batch that  came into Wyoming in the early eighties.  " Say, there's that poor devil screaming  again. The doc's a long time coming. I  guess he won't last. He was hit iu the  stomach. Say, I wonder if he's got any  tabac. I've asked everybody else near,  but it seems rough to bother him."  "Wait," said the man with the broken  arm, groaning. "Talking's better than  lying still. What's become of Sulky  Sam?"  "We-ell, he was sulkier and sneeringer  than ever when lie joined the troop, and  there's no discipline for the likes of him.  They takes their punishment and they're  sulkier and sneeringer and measlier than  ever. Sam wasn't three months in barracks before every man in garrison avoided him, and what's more, was afraid of  him just like them "rookies. Sam never  got drunk, didn't chew, didn't gamble.  The only thiug that was human about  him was he was la_;y, which was a blessing for us, for he shirked himself into  trouble at last. The evil-eye business  worked successful iu garrison as on the  march. One day the sergeant in charge  of barracks jumped on him for not sweeping under his bunk, jumped on him sav.  age. Sam looked and grinned, and next  day the sergeant was shot through the  heart at the target butts while markiug.  There was talk of lynching Sulky Sam for  that, but bless you;the evii eye racket is  rot, of course, and we didn't like to look  too superstitious. Soon the whole garrison was dowu on him ; offisirs, too, for it  was creepy to see him with his yellow  face wandering around all alone sneering  at everything, and the children running  screaming from him.

So the off sirs wags their heads  about a general eourt-marcial table and  says them lazy fits is chronic^ and,Sam  was bdbtailed for incorrigible worthless^  ness. Everybody smiled happily arjd  wistred Sam the best of luck in Corea or  wherever he might (Shoose to Ideate far  away fronr lis. What, d'ye thinki! I guefes  that feller had really been happy in the  aruiy, for he looked sourer thau ever; I  ain't lying. Every one of that general  court-martial had something happen tp  him iu a week. One lost his best horse,  one got knifed arresting a party of Indian  cattle raiders, one died of pneumonia, and  so on. Tell 'yon, we fellers tumbled over  each other to tell Sulky Sam how sorry  we was for him.  "But the devil didn't go far. He'd saved  money, and he got more from somewhere.  He moved into the little cowboy town  three miles oil' and set up a saloon. We-ell,  fellers are queer sometimes. First one  and then another feller on leave, after a  drink or two, thought he'd see what sort  of a place Sam was running. Hed good  measure of beer, and cheap rotgut, and  pretty often there came to be some of the  boys round Sam', saloon. At first it was  all right. The beast couldn't be anything  but sulky, but he seemed trying to be  civil. Is there no sign of an ambulance or  a doc?   That feller's screaming again.  "Fust trouble was when a man joked  Sam in his saloou about his bobtail discharge. Man was shot by a cowboy same  night in another part of the town. Still  the fellers went, 'cause the evil eye's nonsense anyhow, and Sam gave credit till  pay days. Then he seemed to feel secure,  as it might be, and began to be mean  again in earnest, though there was never  a row in his saloon so far as he was concerned. One bitter cold night, however,  a boy kicked against his liquor bill, and  he was drunk enough, sure, to be nasty.  Somehow he was left alone in Sam's  saloon. He said afterward Sam cut down  the bill, grinned, and offered to see him  to his hotel. Sam says the soldier left by  himsulf.   Anyhow,  the  man .was found  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  D.  R.

Another time some fellers  was in his place and Sam showed them  an arrangement he'd got fixed behind the  bar���gunuarrel arrangement with a trigger behind attached with springs, so that  four barrels would go off at ouce through  holes in the woodwork aud clean out the  saloon. He said it was because some cowboys had been speaking ugly about him.  Sam went out of the saloon and the thing  went off and filled two soldiers with buckshot. He was out of the room and it may  have been an accident, but such things  made us ones who were ordinarily prudent and not superstitious keep away  from Sam's. Soon the place got almost  deserted, but little things kept happening"  Fellers were never hardly hurt in there;  it was after they'd left to go home that a  horse fell or they got into a row, but  Sulky Sam's place got such a name that  the offsirs were going to appeal to the  town to drive him out, when the thing  happened which ended Sam.;  "The First Sergeant of Troop E had a  son about 12 years old that had been  brought up with the boys and was looking forward to enlisting in the band. He  was a post pet, and not sassy at that.  Jimmy was down for his mother in the  town pn his pony, aud several of the out-  and-out soaks were outside Sam's saloon  when he passed.  " 'Howl' says Jimmy.  " 'How, Jim!' says the soldiers.  "'How, Jim!' says Sulky Sam at his  door.  " 'How, Evil-Eye!' says Jimmy, nOt  sassy, mind you, but just thoughtless, because he'd often heard us talk of Sam, behind his back, as Evil-Eye.

Will is back from a trip to the  Boundary Creek country. He says the  towns are all too large for the country  and getting larger every day.  The longest distance conversation over  the Vernon & Nelson Telephone Company's wines took pince last; evening,  when H. W. Kent, tire general superintendent of the company, called up  George C. Hodge, the local munager, and  carried on a conversation from Seattle.  Captain A. E. Hodgins of the local company, of Kootenay I.-fl.s has fitted up the  room in the rear of his Baker street office  as au armory. The rifles have beeir arranged in racks around the room, and  closets will be provided for the uniforms  ���when they arrive.  The funeral of Mrs. Robert Thomas  Stokes, who died at the Crickmay hospital on Wednesday of pneumonia, took  place from the Presbyterian church this  af teruoon at 2 o'clock.  An effort is being made to get up a six-  day go-as-you-please sprinting tournament in Nelson. Several local "peds" are  said to be willing to enter, and the prospects for pulling the tournament successfully through are said to be good.  John Hamilton, John AytonGib9on and  Dr. Arthur, who enjoy the distinction of  forming the first trio of Grit's in Nelson,  do not view with alarm the possibility of  a straight party contest in Nelson. They  say that they have witnessed the present  Liberal party in'Nelson grow from almost  nothing, and they think that the party is  now numerous enough to take care of  itself in any emergency.  The commencement of work on P.  Burns & Co.'s cold storage and warehouse  building is beiDg delayed. The firm is  waiting for the cold-storage expert, for  the purpose of finding out how the  necessary machinery should be placed.  The building will be a frame, 50x100 feet,  with a stone foundation.
