 ��������,.  MILITARY EVOLUTIONS AT PASIG  END   IN   THE   FLIGHT  Of the Filipinos, With, the Loss of an Undetermined Number of the Insur-  .  gents and No Americans.  ""tit^  i'iiv -���������  CROW'S  NEST  PASS RAILWAY  WILL   NOT   BE   BUILT  Manilla, March 13���11.15 a.m.���At daylight today general Wheaton's divisional  brigade, consisting of the Twentieth  in-  fan try,    the     Twenty-second     infantry,  eight companies of the  Wa-hingion volunteers",  seven  companies of the Oregon  volunteers,   thiee  troops ���nf   ilia Fourth  cavalry, and  a  mounted   battery of I he-  Sixth artillery, was drawn  up on a ridge  behind San Pedro Macati, a mile south ol  the town.   The clearance was sounded at  0.:_0 a.m.. the cavalry leading the column  at a smart trot across the open to the  light,  eventually  reaching  a  clump  of  trees   commanding  the  rear   of  Gu a da-  loupe.    Supported  by   the   Oregons,   the  advance force opened a heavy fire on the  rebels.   The response was feeble and desultory, apparently coming from a handful of men in cover.    While the right column  was swinging toward the town of  Pasig, the left advanced   pouring volleys  into the bush.   A s;niall body of rebels  made a determined stand at Guadaloupe  church,   but they   were  unable  to withstand the assault.   At 7:30 a  river gunboat started   towards Pasig.    The rebels  were tirst encountered by  this vessel  in  the jungle   near  Guadaloupe.     Stealing  along the gunboat poured  a terrific fire  from her gatling guns into the brush. For  all of an hour the whirring of  the  rapid-  fire guns  alternated   with   the  booming  - of the heavier pieces on board. In ihe  meantime Scott's battery ashore was  swelling the trenches and driving th,j'  enemy back. The artillery then advanced  to the ridge of bamboo and drove a few  of the lebel sharpshooters away with  volleys from their carbines. The  artillery then "advauced and met with  little opposition. In the meantime the  infantry had been sent forward  in extended order, the Washington regiment resting on the bank of the river;  each regiment deploying on reaching its  station and furnishing its own supports.  The entire column then wheeled towards  the river, driving the enemy towards his  supports and then advanced on Gun da-  ion pe. The artillery moved to a ridge  commanding Pasig and Parteros. By  this time the enemy was in full (light  along a line over a mile long, and the fir;  ing was discontinued temporarily in order  to give the troops a rest before making  -the attack ou Pasig.   The rebel loss is be-  * lieved to besevere, but only eight Americans were wounded. " At this stage of the  - engagement it was raining heavily.   ���  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, B. C.

There was no  confusion and all orders were obeyed with  coolness and prompine-s. As the engines  would not taken IF, theeaptain decided to  end ashore for  compaiatively  smooth. About 5 o'clock the chief officer  and purser were despatched to convey  the news to the land. They proceeded to  Tiisketwedge, the nearest, telephone  office, aud communicated with the local  agenr.s of the Allan line, and tugs were  sent to the scene. The tugs returned late  last night bringing the fifty passengers.  The captain and crew remained on the  steamer. The Castilian is reported as ly-*  ing easy, but probably she cannot be  saved. __. 1  Will Take the Place of the Men.  Tacoma, March 13.���Oriental papers  brought by the steamer Victoria contain  the following extract from the Republi-  ca Philipino, the insurgent, paper : "The  sj_leudid demonstration of the Cavite  women, without distinction of class or  age, who unanimously requested to be  permitted to take the place of the men if  the men perish in the struggle against the  Americans for the defence of the independence of the Philippines. They say  that irrespective of the weakness of their  sex, the love of their country will make  them strong, and will animate them to  combat against the Americans." A telegram is also published in the Republica  that a letter has been found in Baliway  offering $50,000 reward for the assassination of Aguinaldo.  BRITISH AND AMERICAN TROOPS  GREAT BRITAIN FAGES A DEFICIT  FRATERNIZE   AT   MALTA.  The American  Officers are Dined and Banqueted by the Civil and Military Officials Stationed on the Island.  rf  Jealousy Between Sweden and Norway.  New York, March 13.���A dispatph to  the Herald^ from���Christiana .says : The  Norwegians'are not pleased with the  temporary government of the crown  prince, who is' much stricter than his  father and has-now shown that he will  hot allow; Norwegians auy^ little demon-  J stration of "independence." He~ has decided that* Sweden and Norway will fiend  only one representative to the peace congress at The Hague. The representative  will probably be a Swede. Some days  ago war between.Sweden and Norway  was hinted at* during a debate in the  Storthing, and colonel Bassoe took the  opportunity of pointing out that the Nor-  - wegian fortresses were good for nothing  ih case of war. The minister of war hotly  coutradietedjthe statement, and several  others of the members also criticized  colonel Bassoe; but the whole affair is  causing great uneasiness here, as the  mere suggestion of war between the sister  countries in parliament is proof of the  jealousy which exists.

There was no change in the lead  market, the price for miners and smelters  remaining at $4.20.  New York, March 13 ���A dispatch to the  Herald from Malta says: A** the luncheon  given at the Union  Club  by   the British  army and navy officers to the officers of  the Twelfth and Seveueenth regiments of  the United States infantry, now en route  to the Philippines, the chairman, admiral  Rodney   Lloyd,  proposed   the health of  president McKinley.   He said the president in the present crisis had the universal sj'inpathy of England in his civilizing  mission.   In reply, United States consul  Grout said it was an unique occasion. The  troops had landed in Malta by the kind'  permission of   the governor.    This was  another stroke revealing the affections of  sister nations, the joint civilizers of the  world.    He proposed the health of "The  Queen."     The  chairman    toasted   "Our  Guests."   He said it was a red letter day  in the history of Malta.   Our American  cousins' visit was unprecedented.    He extended them a hearty welcome and congratulated them again on the task they^  had accomplished.   Colonel Smith of the  Twelfth returned hearty thanks. He said.  theadage, "Westward thecourseof empire  takes it way, was now changed to '���Bast-  ward," under the joint auspices of the two;  flags for one cause.   When theygave the  word all must be ready.   The greatest en-,  thusiasoi  was  shown  throughout^    The'  attendance was   the fullest  Obtainable.  .Among the British  army   officers   were  major-general    Owen,   colonel   Spencer,  colonel Nugent and colonel Bridgeman ;,  captain Marrack, captain Campbell and  captain Hallet of the royal   navy ; major  Hugh Brown, captain Haskell and captain  Witherspoon   of    the   Twelfth   United  States   Infantry;     major   O'Brien,   first  lieutenant Hart and first lieutenant Dur-  fee of the Seventeenth regiment, and captain'Higgins ot the transport Sheridan.

It is  now pretty well understood thatthe race  for the mayoralty will be between F. Mc-  Carty and T. Livingstone Haig.   The first  named-has been in the butcher business in  Revelstoke   for  the   past eight or' nine  years, and is remembered as the butcher  who at one time sold  meat below cost.  His competitor ih the race is at present  employed as a customs officer, and also  does a real estate and insurance business.  He first came to Revelstoke in connection  with  the smelter which failed to smelt,  and  was also at one time associated in  business with W. A. Jowett of Nelson.  ^So4'a-^there=ar,e_sev-;eiTicandidates-in=the=  field for aldermaiiic" honors, but the mim- ,  ber rimy be doubled by Wednesday, when  the official .nominations fake place.

Rudyard Kipling passed a good night  aud felt refreshed this morning.  The United States hospital ship Relief,  from Nevv York, on March 3rd, for Manila,  arrived at Gibraltar today.  Charles H. Sauvey, the railroad mail  postal clerk of Syracuse, New s York,  arrested for stealing from the mails was  today sentenced to four years at hard  labor in Sing Sing.  The British steamer Plata, captain  Allen, from Baltimore, March 3rd, for  Havana, with a cargo of hay and railroad  iron, went ashore on Friday on Coffin's  Patches, fifty miles from Key West, Florida. Her cargo is being jettisoned. The  Plata is a steel screw steamer of 2044 tons-  net register.   Ordered Negotiations Stopped.  London, March 13.���It is reported from  Manila that general Otis has ordered a  discontinuance of the negotiations between the Spanish general Rios and  Aguinaldo for the release of the Spanish  prisoners on the payment of a heavy indemnity, as such payment would  strengthen the Philippino cause by replenishing the insurgent treasury.  London, March 13.���The British budget,  for the first time iu many years, is going  to show a deficit for the  financial year  which ends ou March 25th.   The receipts  are already half a million pounds sterling  -bijuvv chancellor Hicks-Beach's estimates,  ���api it is evidentfrom  the departmental  rp|ogramines that he will  have to raise  three millions by increased  taxation to  meet   the  coming   year's   requirements.  'The country has been so accustomed to  surpluses that it is quite nonplussed. Tlie  Times warns   it that   the  "grave   fiscal  problems"   must  be  faced  immediately.  ���Of .the  two   alternatives,  to  spend less  tnouey or to raise more revenue, it may be  stated emphatically that public opinion  rejects the former.   Mr.  Morley's taunt  that he could   now define a  jingo as a  man   who. is   willing to  spend   ��50,000,-  000 annually in a time of general peace  oh the nation's military equipment hasn't;  stung the electors.   It will doubtless be  often repeated in the coming budget debate, but only  by. a dwindling group of  the 3fanchesfer school,  not by practical  ^politicians   who   are   coucerned  for   the  country's   position   in the  world.   Even  the moderate Spectator declares that "no  one but a madmauwould propose to-re-'  diice either the land or sea forces at the  present time," and this in a week when  the   army  estimates   are  announced  as  nearly a million and a half above those of  1S9S, and   the   country   knows  that the  navy will follow suit.    The expenditures  of   the two services  next year   will  be  nearly ��48,000,000.  "This," says the Outlook, "is the cost of  keeping the islands aud coasts of the empire inviolate, and no sane man will  begrudge the cost." Chancellor Hicks-  Beach has not the slightest notion of  cutting down the.naval or military ex,-"  peuditure. He is not the man to follow  lord Randolp Churchill and resign unless  the ministry reduces, the department's  estimates. * ,.  . The problem of oroducing'niore reveniu.  .{-/.ids many suggested solutions. The really  startling thing is how'many are proposals  for protection in varying degrees.1 Evidently the ^nation during years of large  surplus has'ceased to tremble at the word  protection. The Times-points out that'it  isn't-merely an expedient to tide over a  singleyear that has to be found. "The  mischief goes muclideeper that any casual  miscalculation of this or that chancellor  of the exchequer. For at least, twenty  years back the country has been pursuing  a course of financial policy which has  disturbed the,financial equilibrium and  has tended' more and more to alter the  centre of gravity of taxation. The danger  is thiitit is so easy to get over a temporary difficulty by_the,simple expedient of  raising'by an income tax an additional  penny or pound." Its conclusion, which  has taken the free-trade essayist's breath  away, is that "it is mischievous to encourage the idea that a free breakfast table is  the privilege of British soldiers, like the  trial by jury or the writ of habeas corpus.  The true policy is to extend the scope of  indirect taxation by the reimposition of  tJiejshihing duty on corn, \yhich :>yai Jiot  "fert,.wh;ile ft w-tsTjn operation aiid which  wOuid bring in at present a very large  sttm. This is one proposed reform. A  duty of a halfpeeny a pound on sugar,  which wOnl'd yield some six millions a  year, is another. If some such measures  are hot adopted we will find ourselves confronted by far more serioQs financial problems in the immediate future."  There are four large gambling houses, aud  it is a question if any of them are ''paying  expenses.    The )ari_pst is -aid to have run  behind $30,000 in the four months ending  December 3l*r.    But. one sensational play  has been made during the past few weeks.  List Tue-day Willie Golden, former^- of  Washington, purchased a stack of whites  from the faro game in the Dominion, as he  remarked    at   the   .time,   "jiist   to   win  enough  to  get  dinner." - Luck   did   not  favor him, however,  and in  a few hours  he was $5000 loser.   Fortune favored him  then, and soon ; he won  back his losings  and $000 better.������= Arising from the table,  he treated a number of friends, and, after  ajew  moments' rest, commenced  to play  again.    For his accommodation the limit  was raised from $100 to $300.   In the.first  three deals he lost $1200,  and in  a short  time  was $5500"out.   He then purchased  $1000 worth of blues, which he lost in just  one hour .and a half.   Luck had entirely  forsaken     him,     and     a     short     time  later he quit  playing, beiner $9430 loser.  As showing the percentage of the game,  $900   was   taken   out by   the  dealer   du  "splits."       .  No saloons are open for business on Sunday,   and   the  law is  strictly enforced  Should a saloon   keeper be caught violating the law he would be heavily fined  and his license forfeited.  A most peculiar water freak can be seen  on the hills above the town. During the  summer a gentleman built a cabin on the  hillside just below a spriug. Several  weeks ago the* spring froze up, but the  water coming from the . earth being  slightly warm, burst out again directly  underneath the cabin, and "forced up  through the floor, where it froze. As it  poured in it con tinned to freeze, until  fioallythe ice on the floor was on a level  with the bottom of the window. Through  this window the water could make its escape, and it proved the greatest convenience for the entire neighborhood, for  when the thermometer was down in the  30's this pure cold water poured ontin  sufficient quantities to satisfy the entire  neighborhood.  Along the Shore of Kootenay Lake to Nelson this Year, But More Barges "Will  Be Built Instead.  end-  piln*  ���l;ii'.dc  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The  To-  DRUGS   ARE   HIGH   PRICED  At  Dawson; and Sports are N6t Allowed  to   Shake the ,Dice for Drinjks.  Drugs are the highest priced articles in  the Dawson market, and the article doqs  nob necessarily ijavo to be scarce  to be costly. For instance, when  the miner comes in and inquires J'Or alcohol, he is quoted at $50 per gallon. Pomice  stone and sulphur, 50 cents per ounce.  Ordinary patent medicine, about $3 per  bottle, the size of the bottle being considered, not the manufacturer' or original  cost. Poor qualities of playing cards are  plentiful, but good qualities are scarce  and readily bring 75 cents and $1 per  pack. There will bono shortage of liquors  as there is now in the camp about 120,000  gallons, and the estimated consumption  from now until navigation opens will be  only 75,000 gallons. The average price of  case whiskies is $40 per case; of bulk  goods $10 per gallon, though inferior'articles can be purchased cheaper.  Rulings of the officials at Dawson are  somewhat beyond the comprehension of  the ordinary man to understand. For instance, ata meetiugof the Yukon council,  the body that governs the Klondike country ; a resolution Was passed making it a  crime to shake dice for the drinks, yet  the contestants can put au equal amount  of money, shake the dice, and the winner  treat, or in the same room or over the  same bar they may publicly game for  thousands of dollars. Speaking of gambling, there is very little of it being done of  late. The past heavy players are not here,  and last year's immigration either have  not the money or are disposed to keep it.  Usual Meeting Will Not be Held  night to Transact Business.  It is not likely that the city council will  transact any business 'this" evening. The  probability is that the members will meet  and adjourn to Tuesday evening, so that:  the members can take in the comedy  which will be^ produced at the' opera  .house yjis. eyeniug. There jire three or  f6ur"i"m'p6rtant'~'niattefs"~trd' come" before  the council at the "next meeting. Alderman Fletcher's scheme for saloon expansion will be discussed, and the question of  ���whether the West ward shall ���go dry  or J have plenty oi "booze" will .be  disposed of. There' is ' also likel</  to be a warm time when thequeston of  the corporation's bank account is reached,  as several of the members of the council  are curious to,,know the circumstances  under whichthe tenders from the several  banks were solicited. Then there is. also  the question of the.linauce committee's report a,s to the money available for improvements this year. The ratepayers-  desire that the local chancellor should follow-the example of Mrs. Dombey.-.and  "make an effort," in order that they may  know what to .expect.  The Bank of  Montreal Building.  Last fall  the Bank of   Montreal  purchased   the thirty-foot lot at  the southwest corner of Baker and  Ward streets,  and F. M. Rattenbury of Vancouver  lur.  General manager Whyle,  -uperin  cut Marpolt*, am! the men who mnkci:  "official parly" will i el urn from Ri-  this evening and  continue  their -j-uimt-y  to Revelstoke.     General iiiainigur Whyie  did   not  bring   any   assurance  that  the  Canadian  Pacific R*<ilway Company will  build the Kootenay Lake section of- the  Crow's   Nest   road, and   the general  impression   among   the railway officials  is  that no start will be made upon the work  this season.   So far as Nelson goes it does  not matter very much  whether  the lake  connection is made this season or.'next.',  A.s matters stand the city has all of the  advantages  of  through connection  and.  none of the disadvantages.     In the.opet-  atiou of its steamers at present the-company employs about fifty men  to handle  the business, all of   whom   live in   Nelson and spend their money here.   When  the     road     is      built      the      bu-iness  can   easily   be   haudled  by   two freight  crews and   one passenger crew,  half of  whom 'willlive in Nelson and  the other  half somewhere else.   Another advantage  which the present arrangement "offers for  Nelson  is that through passengers going  and coming are obliged at present to stop  over in Nelson, whereas when the road is  completed they may  be carried  through  the city in the niglit.   Aside from the advantage  which .the city  would get from  the expenditures upon construction Nelson is just as well uff now as it will  be  when the city has all-rail connection with  the Crow's Nest railway.

It will  be brick and two stories high.  McDo-weii Got a Site.  G. W. McDowell, the sampling Works  promoter, came to an understanding wjih  the Canadian Pacific railway officials yesterday with respect to a sampling works  site on; the company's right of way. He  did not secure the exact location he desired, but got one which will probably  answer his purpose, although it will necessitate a change in the plans prepared  for the sampler.

[.Victoria Colonist, March II.I  An inspection of the payroll of the  house will, we are told, disclose the interesting fact that neither Mr. Semlin, Mr.  Cotton nor Mr. Hume drew mileage. Mr.  Martin did. Mr. Martin, realizing that  bis time is short, does not -propose that  any opportunity to get hold of money  shall pass by unimproved. His mileage  and his saving in room rent will make  quite a neat little sum.  "Jim" Returned Alone.  . [Silverton Bilvertonian, March lllh.)

Salisbury, Maryland,  March 13.���A fire  broke  out in  Jackson's mill   early  this  morning.   The flames spread rapidly and  a high wind scattered the sparks in every  direction.   The firemen  worked heroically, but the flames were beyond their control,   and help   was asked  for from Wilmington,  Gristield and Pocomoke   City.  The mill and big lumber yard, containing  millions   of feet  of lumber, were soon a  glowing mass of coals.   The fHmes gradually  spread   to   adjoining property   aud  there was   great apprehension  that  the  entire lower part of the town would go. 2  THE TRIBUTE:  KELSON, B.

The Kaslo Kootenaian  has made such a mistake. It says the  member for Slocan riding shirked the vote  on the question of repealing the act granting aid to certain projected railways.  The member in question did not shirk the  vote, but was present in the house and  voted for the second reading of the bill.  The office of gold commissioner has  been, practically, abolished. Any power  that gold commissioners exercised can  now be exercised by mining recorders, so  that every mining division is on an  equal footing.  Canada ranks fifth as a producer of  gold, yet not a gold coin is in circulation  in Canada that is not the product of a  mint outside of Canada.

Aft allowaht'e is not a mere privilege,  but, in a certain senfee, a girl's right. To  withhold it is an injustice not only to the  girl but to the n_au whom she may marry  ted. whose money will be entrusted to  her care to spend wisely. Indeed, it might  be said without hesitation that it is a  father's duty to see that his daughters not  only understand the value of money, but  the difficulty of earning the same.  It was the poet Young, a somewhat dismal and lugubrious author, who told us  in his "Night Thoughts" that "we take ho  note 6f time but from  its loss"���and  to  "this may be added that they only know  'the value of money who have not got  any.   A girl who caters for herself will  have ah opportunity of showing her individual taste* audit gives her a feeling  of self-reliance.  Men in Ballrooms.  It has been said that the modern young  man literally cuts but a poor figure when  he "takes the floor," and, despite the fact  that fancy dancing has been quite recently a fashionable cra/,e, it cannot justly be  maintained that tbe modern girl displays  the grace in tbe ballroom as her mother  and grandmother before her. That young  men are positively awkward nowadays  is   not   in   . the     least    surprising,   in  the   first   place,    they   get    but    little  practice,   since    it    is     practically    by  main force alone that they are dragged  Into the middle of the ballroom;   So diffi  cult, indeed, is it for hostesses to get  dancing men at all to their balls that it  seems well-nigh dangerous to grumble at  the few who do come for their inefficiency.  However, it is nottinreasonable to ask  that the "smart" ballroom should cease  to be the scene of such clumsy and graceless terpsichorean performances as is now  too frequently the case. Apparently it is  only when he is allowed to valse as he  pleases, to "scorch" to his heart's content, to "clown" through barn dances and  reduce the lancers to their lowest terms,  thatvthesn-odern young- man will dance,  |and;girls���;must perforce adapt themselves  "to/* tliiS/jityle or,- go partnerless.

By this,  time he had forgotten that he ever had a  cold or that he had met the physician  and listened to advice on colds, because it  is polite to do so. With the bill in his  hand he sought out the physician, vvho  explained the matter, saying he need not  pay it at once unless it was convenient  forhi.ni.   3Srpt wishing to make, an enemy  of the young lawyer, he talked of business and business difficulties for half an  hour, drawing tho young man out and  giving him a chance to talk.  The next day the physician received a  check for $1 in payment of the bill sent  the young lawyer, accompanied by a bill  with the lawyer's name across the top,  which called for'$10 for half an hour's  consultation the day before.

My friend Mike Tussler was a cow boy-  par accident. Nature had made him an  Irishman, and the favor of a-.ward-boss  had made him a policeman in Boston, yet  here was he beside a sape-brnsh camp-fire,  with the cattle bedded down i'or (he night,  hard by. Some good cowboys come from  Boston���a few. There is a doubt about  Mr. Tussler as to whether he was so  eflicient a vaquero because he was Irish,  or for the reason that he was unusually  bow-legged. At any rate, his anatomy  fitted to a horse very accurately, and he  bestiode a bucking bronco as gracefully  and securely as a saw-buck on a Gothic  roof. It is said���but I can give you on I y  hearsay ou the this point���that Mike  would lock his toes together under the  horse's rib.1., and thus ride out safely the  hardest gale of .pitching and tossing that  any cayuse could put up. Added to the  auatomical reason, for the Irishman's  making a good vaquero, there appears to  be an interesting ethnological one.  There is an hypothetical racial relation  between      Ireland    and     Spain.

I found that out  at once by the empty barrels that was  piled up near the entrance. The poor old  lady died on hearing bow she had been  buncoed, aud so I never bad the chance to  let her know I was mistaken, the barrels  notbein/s; salt barrels, bub all bpttled-beer  barrels, just dumped in the Canyon to get  theui out of the Way. Tlie 'hills was ft  great* place f6r beer, reti-indiug rfle of  Cambridge, and the railroad not bein'  built yet, everything had Lo cou.e in two  hundred miles on wagons, making fr<_igl-t  Sky-high and the price of beer likewise.  "The old lady's mine was -ailed the  - 'Sparhawk,' and all.there was to it was a  tunnel about sixty feet into the mountain  right close to town, so as bhe miner could  have all the advantages of town and  country life. Not being very flush of  money, on account of her dying so sud  denly after getting the report on the  mine without having time to sign ray  check, I boarded up the front of the tunnel and moved in. I made some elegant  furniture out of the old barrels, aud I  found a lot of beer���about a dozen bottles  ���that had been overlooked in the straw-  packing in the barrels. It was getting  cold weather, but the straw bad kept it  from freezing, so's 'twas all right.  "Now, having a corkscrew in my pocket  at the moment Was the foundation of my  fortune, for if I'd been obliged to break  the bottles to get the beer, the idea would  never have come to me to save 'em. But  seeing them standing all up in a row, as  good as new, and only wanting more beer  in them (like me), think, says I, 'why not  save 'em aud get 'em filled ?'  ;  "I wrote a letter to my cousin in Boston, and 1 asked him : 'What becomes of  all the beer-bottles ?' knowing him to be  an authority on such points. Aud he  answered me back :. 'We used to throw  .'em.in. the bay, but they-stropped us on  account of fillin' up the harbor, and now  ���*���*�������������� we sends'em back to the bottlin' works  to be refilled. We get two cents for them.'  "When I got my cousin's letter, I spent  the night laying out my plans, and the  very next morning, bein' a man of action,  I begun to carry them out. 1 got me a  barrow and went over the town colloctin'  bottles, and I fetched 'em to me residence  in the tunnel and stacked 'em up inside,  about twenty feet back. Well, b'ys, the  pile got so big that it like to crowded me  out entirely, for I went to every place in  town that sold beer, and asked them to  save me the bottles, and I swept out their  places, and washed windows, and did all  sorts of jobs for them, so that they would  do it. And I was called 'Crazy Mike.'  Frequently a man would tell me : 'Don't  you know, j'ou loonatic, _,that bottles is  worth only two cents in Omaha, and it  would cost four cents to get 'em there?'  But to all such I says : 'Leave me be. I'm  here for my health.'  "But very well I knew I couldn't get  them hauled out by the freight-teams.  I'd had been to every one of them fellows,  and they would all go out empty sooner  than load up. with cheap freight. So I  keeps on piling up the bottles, and I had  to pull down the stack and begin way  back at the end of the tunnel to get more  room. And I became quite the celebrated  character iu that town. I've b'een mentioned in sermons, the preacher saying :  'Let us be faithful to our ideals, as the  beer-bottle man istohis.' And the tourists,  they had to have a look at me and my  stack of bottles in the tuuuel, for the  people said : 'Yon mustn't go away without seeing our bottle-mad man. He is  unique.'  "The town continued to prosper and  drink beer. Only one mine, the Home-  stake, was paying big, bub there were a  lot of good prospects, and now and again  some fellow would strike a rich pocket  and take out gold enough in a day to quit  on. Aiid it kept eveiwbody hopeful.  Without neglecting my business I took  lessons in mining, and I learned what tbey  mean by 'saltin': a mine. And I felt sorry  that the old lady, my former employer,  was dead, so that I couldn't let her know  too. Audi learned that the Sparhawk  mine never had struck any ore at all, biit  was just run into the hill on a venture,  like ypuiinight tire, your gun into a leafy  tre.a.'o'u'tlfe.cM a. squirrel .might  gbW'"]_iSMbl6b"eV6i-i1_f<.H-?s, and  mebbe. you'll  .'bJioit:|lnmn.���*/;.|?Kj^->5,%^-. ���.   ��� -   :- .   .\ ,.     .  *N^kf^-ri^4,^_y��f9pen and. took 'pointers  ;wheileyer^?;"vM^&yyg&t them; and by the  ;8^ilit4^c}j^eefi��-t.^refiLi!5'in the hills I knew'  Vab_usp."^ learned, in that  ,.epartBuient:V���vSo; partly, to practice .my.  ���^'ri-oWJ^d^e^iSdjpavt"-^. to make, more room  ..-it.. ^"tb_fp":;bbt|urpsV'I;"begau to dig.

It made me sick.  "When I recovered from my illness 1  went down there and demanded my gold.  But they stood me off. I could prove  nothing, and they said probably the bottles was not properly corked and it shook  out in transit. But I know they had it.  Twas only this summer the head of the  firm retired from business and went to  Milwaukee and married a lovely beer lady  there. I saw her picture in the Hanky-  Panky Magazine.  "And so 'tis, b'ys, that I'm am a cowboy, and you all are associating with me  on equal terms.  "The mine? Oh, yes. Being now the  legal owner, I put the deed on record and  picked out some, chunks of the richest  rock for the assayer.  "He didn't charge me a cent. He just  looked at it and me con tern ptous. 'That's  mica,' said he; 'what do you mean by  bringing fool's gold to me?'  "But it looked like the real stuff I had  in the bottles. So I made up my mind  that my eyesight wasn't good enough for  mining, and I quit.  "And that's the truth."

I had to hire some boys to help  me gather the bottles. That was the last  lot I got. By next day people had woke  up to me. The railroad bein' in, bottles  was the same as cashj ttnd bottles ri'z.  They called me 'Crazy Mike' no more,,  Well knowing I had a million of 'eni  stowed away in the tunnel. Being, as I  said, a man of action, 1 sold my bottles at  once by wire to the works at UenverV But  my troubles Were not Over, l'6r when I  come to see the agent about shipijiug, he  told toe tho empty bottles not being on  the schedule he would have to bill 'tsm; as  glass, double first class, and the highest  rate of all. I told him the road Was a  hog, find he allowed that most of the  stock was owned in Chicago. I made a  bluff to hold on a few years till another  road came in. but something happened  just then, and I let 'em go quick.  "The thing that happened was the  nephew of the old lady that owned the  mine. He came in on the very first regular train into the hills. He had the  papers all straight enough, and he looked  up the property. When he found it, he  found me and the bottles. And he told  me to get out. But b'ys, it broke thy  heart to think of leaving the mine aud  my rich pocket not half worked out. I  couldn't do it. And I fixed up a trade  with him, that if he would go along and  dig somewhere else and not bother me, I'd  sell my bottles and buy the mine. But  lie was a hard man to deal with, not  knowing anything about mines. He and  the road between 'em got every cent of  the proceeds, and I got a deed to the  mine.  "Tlie rest of the details are rather painful. I was undoubtedly a millionaire for  a short while. Fortune came up, looked  me s-quare in the face,, and then, like the  good Samaritan, passed by on the other  side.: "'V  "In the excitement and hurry of packing and shipping all them bottles���and  they all had to be put into barrels packed  in leaves, straw not bein' found in the  hillp���I forgot my bottles of gold, which  .   .The 'only restaurant ��\h   the city  employing" only white cooks.

The enrolment of pupils at the Nelson  public .schools is 335 aud the average  attendance for last week was 215.  The daily edition of the Rossland Miner  has been enlarged. Yesterday'.* paper  had eight pages of six columns each. The  Thihuxk follows suit today. It has three  inches more reading matter on the first-  page.  Plans are out for what will one of the  finest residences in Nelson. The site is at  the southwest corner of Carbonate and  Hendryx street, one of the best in the  town. When completed it will be occupied by A. II. Buchanan, manager of t he  Bank of Montreal. A. JG. Hodgins pie-  pared the plans.  William Burns, inspector of public  schools, returned on Saturday evening  from an official crip through E.ist Kootenay and along the main line of the Canadian Pacific railway.  So far as known the most interesting  item of business to come before the meeting of the board of trade this evening  will be the passing upon the merits of the  rival applicants for the job of taking  charge of the provincial exhibit at the  Paris exposition.  Jacob Dover has sent all his friends in  Nelson an invitation to his wedding,  which is to take place at Montreal on the  loth instant. The future Mrs. Dover is  Miss Ray Arbnsou of 2002 St. Catherine  street.  Alderman McKillop is around after a  severe attack of la grippe.  H. Bird, a new arrival from Canniugton  manor, N. W. T., purchased two pieces of  ^property today. The first piece was lots  ��� 9 and 10, block 14, in Addition "A," which  was purchased from William Crawford  for $1000; the second piece was lots 11  and 12 in the same block, the property of  Wilfred Cookson, which was purchased  for $2000.  Jeremie Robillard is the latest aspirant  for the honor of being the representative  of the province and of having charge of  the mineral exhibits at the Paris exhibition. Jeremie has a petition supporting  his claim which has over 400 signatures,  and he says that he can secure 2000 if  given sufficient time. Among the names,  upon Jeremie's petition are those of general manager Whyte and superintendent  Marpole of the Canadian Pacific who were  in the city but a few hours, but not a sufficiently short time to enable them to escape "Jerry."  Harry Sheran, the mining authority of  New Denver, is in Nelson. He says tliat  there is a deal pending for the Molly  Hughes group, iu which he is interested,  but as the owners are convinced that they  have an.excellent property they are not  over anxious as to the outcome of the  negotiations.
