 ^oh  ���v.,  A SCHEME TO INVADE ENGLAND  PLANNED   BY qA   FRENCHMAN  And Cabled to This Country as News of as  Great Importance as the Weather and  the Doings of Royalty.  LEAD   FROM  CANADIAN  MINES  SHOULD   BE  RE-ADMITTED  London,   March   25.���The   weather   in  Great Britain during tho past week underwent a complete change.    The last  week  tlie weather was warm and summer-like;  now it has been bitterly cold, with snow  everywhere.   London participated in the  wintry weather, but here it was tempered  by    bright    sunshine.      The    highlands  throughout the country are deeply snow-  clad, with the worst snowstorms experienced in many years.   Scotland, naturally, suffered  most severely, especially tbe  country  around    Balmoral,    where   the  shooting-boxes and farm-houses have been  so snowed up that they resemble to some  extent   tbe   homes  of.Esquimaux.'    The  duke of York has been snowed up at Ab-  ergeldirnains,   near   Baiiater.    He   went  there owing to the fleeting spell of spring  weather, duriug the month, for the salmon   fishing; but  the  weather  changed  quickly to Arctic cold, and a heavy snowstorm cut him off from communication  with the outer world.   It will be days before he is liberated.  Queen Victoria has giveu two additional  instances of her womanly feeling this  week, which have a very pleasing impression in southern France. While outdriving at the beginning of the week she overtook a peasant's walking funeral and had  no room to pass. The mourners stopped  and stood aside, but the queen requested  the cortege to proceed, and her own carriage followed respectfully at a walking  pace for half a mile, until the roads diverged. Again, while driving through  Nice on Wednesday the queen passed a  child, which was crying bitterly. She ordered her carriage stopped, and sent a  member of her suite to. inquire0 the cause  of the child's distress and give it a few  coius, which had a magical effect. The  little one's face brightened up, and the  queen, smiling, remarked : "As long as  nothing serious is the matter, 1 thought a  few sovereigns would make the little one  happy."  Princess Maude of Wales is reported notoriously unhappy in her Danish home,  and that it required all the persuasion of  her parents to reconcile her to return to  the gloomy environment of the Danish  court. Her love for her alien home, it is  added, is not increased by the fact that  the prospect of auychild of hers reaching  the throne has been destroyed by the  .birth of an heir to prince Christian,'the  '���, eldest son of crown priuce Frederick.  The queen of Sweden and Norway has  become1 a-'eollectoij; for the "Salvation"  Army, a money-box having been placed  on the dining table in tbe royal palace.  The crown princess of Sweden and Norway is now wintering at Rome. She is  iii extremely bad health, the constitutional malady from which she suffers has begun to affect ber eyes, and she.has been  ordered to give up reading, drawing and  photography. * The only recreation she  - has left is music.  A correspondent in Paris writes thatthe young Parisian dandies are distressed  at*the loss of the prince' of Wales as a  king of fashion. It is said the prince ne-"  gleets his personal appearance woefully";  his overcoat is shabby, his hat shapeless,  and his tie -so much pn one side that his  shirt studs are visible. The golden youth,  it'appears, are now seeking another idol.  Considerable interest is taken in the announcement of the coming marriage of  lady Edith Douglas,. daughter of ��� the  marquis of Qiieensberry, to St. George  Pitt, who .is the nead of the psychical research society and a great authority on  "spooks:"  Sidney Webb, chairman of the  lechni-  _caLeducatiou_boaid,_handled American.  institutions in ajseve&maiiuer while lec-  vturiug   recently   befdre   the   school   of  SATURDAY AFTERNOON, MARCH *r>, 189!).  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  papers pooh-pooh the scheme, but the  French newspapers discuss it as being  a perfectly sound proposition. The Petit  Journal praises the plan, declaring its  chief merit is its simplicity and unity,  and points to the success of the Roman,  Saxon, Danish, and Norman invasions as  proving the feasibility of the project.  Cambridge Won the Boat Race.  Putney, March 25.���The fifty-sixth annual boat race between crews representing the universities of Oxford and Cambridge was rowed today over the usual  course0 from Putney to Mortlake. The  distance is about four and one-quarter  miles, and the" race was won by Cambridge, for the first time in ten  years. The       official       time       was  twenty-one      minutes     four      seconds.  Cambridge   now    has    twenty-four  out  of the fifty-six races rowed to her credit.  Tbe light blues were the favorites ih the  betting, the odds being eleven to four on  Cambridge,   though   this   was generally  regarded as extravagant. The Cambridge  crew won the toss and took the Surrey  side of the river,  which,  with the fresh  wind blowing, gave the light blues a decided advantage.   Cambridge at once assumed a slight lead, which was increased  to one and one-fourth lengths at Craven-  steps, five furlongs from the> start.   Just  beyond   this point,  however, Oxford began drawing  up,   and   ac   the  Crabtree  wharf,   one mile and 320 yards from the  starting point, the dark blues were level  with    Cambridge.       At    Hammersmith  Bridge,   one mile  five furlongs and   one  hundred yards from thestartingliue, Cambridge had again assumed the lead by half  a length, which Was increased to two and  a half   lengths at  Thorny Creek,  some  three   miles from  the start.   From this  point Cambrige continued her position,  rowing a fine steady stroke, while Oxford  splashed  badly and   was evidently  distressed.    When the light   blues   reached  Barnes Bridge, three miles  four furlongs  and   thirty yards from  the start, they  were four lengths ahead and the race was  practically.over, for the dark blues of Oxford were going to pieces and rowing anyhow.    The    Cambridge    crew    finished  stroug,    four    lengtlis    ahead    of   Oxford.   Two   of  the   Oxford   crew   fainted    as     the    boat    crossed     the    line.  THE FILIPINOS STOOD NO SNOW  AND   WERE   ROUTED  From  Tlieir  Strongholds   in the  Neighborhood of Malabon With Small Loss  to the Americans.

In spite of the sighing of the French  agreement regarding Africa* one of the  leading topics of the week on both sides  of the channel has been an article published ih the Revue des deux Mondes, seriously outlining a fresh scheme of invasion of Great Britain. It proposes that  1500 steam pinnaces be built and collected  in canals and rivers leading to the French  coast; that each be armed with two  quick-firing guns, and that they convey  an army of 170,000 men and 500 cannon,  with necessary ammunition, stores, etc.  The cost of construction-is estimated at  150,000,0000 francs. The. pinnaces to be  provided with torpedoes to keep off hostile ships, while, the quick-firing guns are  to repulse torpedo boat attacks* /The  writer of the article says that there  would be no difficulty in getting the boats  across, pointing out that Napoleon had  a more difficult task at Wagram, where  he crossed the Danube in the face of the  Austrian army. The English coast defences are classed as being a negligible  quantity, and the operation is looked upon by the writer as being merely a matter  of a few hours. Three divisions of 14,000  men each are to be landed in Ireland, and  the Irish are to be armed.    The English  A Supposed Clue.

This week the Relief Gold Mining Company, operating the Second Relief mine  near Erie* exported 15 tons of ore to Wallace, Idaho. The shipment was valued at  $184.'   ���* ��� -"���'���,  Manilla, March 25.���The movoment of  the American troops today swept the insurgents-back towards Malabon.   General  Otis's brigade is in front of Lalom, where  there is a stretch of a mile of rough, open  country.   The insurgent trenches in the  edge of the woods are four feet deep and  furnish a good head cover.   The American troops advanced on the double-quick,  yelling fiercely and occasionally dropping  in the grass and firing a volley.   Thejna-  tives   stood   until   the  Americans  were  within two hundred yards of their position, and then   broke  and ran  for *\ the  woods.     About   thirty   of   them- were  killed in the outskirts and seventy on the  roads.   The Montana and Kansas troops  met with the hottest resistance in a strip,  from from which the rebels have greatly  worried  the Americans recently  during  the   night time.     Ninety   minutes -after  the start, the whole front for a distance  of three miles to   the   north  had-been  cleared.       General      Hayes's       brigade  had     simultaneously      swept      in-V a  northwesterly    direction,     routing j the  enemy and burning the town of San Francisco Del Monte and a number of scattered  huts.   The line was then opposite! Nova  Lichee,  the  wagous   carrying pontoons,  telegraph supplies and *am muni Lion :(iol-  lowing.   The infantry moved in splendid  order.   Smoke    from  the   burning  huts  marked the line of the American advance.  Ambulances  and  horse   litters, Jed'*, by  Chinese, brought in the wounded, among  whom were a few Filipinos.   The Americans who were wounded endured their injuries bravely, one group which had been  brought into the hospital singing "Com-,  rades."   The  Pennsylvania  troops"  took  uine prisoners, among them a naked captain of the Macabebee tribe and one Japanese.  All the prisoners were greatly terrified,  expecting to be  executed* immediately. . . -.       1  General McArthur's division, consisting  of the brigades of- Otis, Hale and Hall,  supplemented by.Wheaton's brigades advanced at daylight and cut;the enemy's  forces in_two. -They.captured "the itowns;  of Polo and Nova Liehes oh "the left and *  San Francisco del Monte and Marquina  on" the right, clearing fche rebel trenches  in front of the,line north from the river  to Calo'ocan. " They also secured possession of the railroad, practically cornering  the flower of Aguinaldo's army at Malabon and in the foothills at Singalon,  twenty miles apart. The American casualties were light.  Manilla, < March 25���3.-15 p.m.���Elaborate preparations were made for the move-,  merits.    Wheaton's brigade was placed in  the   rear ��� and   Otis's- and, Hale's   were  massed behind.    Hale's,  under cover  of  darkness, left the trenches and advanced  close upon the enemy's liuewithout being,  detected, Wheaton's and Hall's'brigades,  occupying   the .vacated   positions.      At  four o'clock  the American  troops breakfasted,  and   the   Filipinos   noticing   the  camp-fires,   their   buglers   sounded   the  call   to   arms.   At  daylight   Otis's   and  Hall's   brigades advanced from  Laloma  church straiglit through the rebel lines,  cutting the enemy's forces in two.    Upou  this occasion the rebels adopted the American tactics, holding their fire until the  -attackers-were-about���1000-yards-distautr  The rebels also fired lower than usual''  but the Americans fired volleys with fceiv  rible effect,  then rushed for ward* cheering,   carrying  everything   before  them.;  Once through, McArthur's division swung  to the lefr, driving the rebel-* away on all  sides.    Wheaton's brigade, in accordance  with    instructions,    remained    in    the  trenches, 9  Before joining the movement at noon,  Wheaton's troops developed strong opposition between Malabon and fche riyer  Tuliauan. The brigades commanded by.  Otis and Hale advanced oh Nova  Liehes and Polo* strongly entrenched  towns. Jn the meantime, iSall'-.  brigade swept the country clear  to the water-Works and foot-hills at  Singalon, capturing San Fn.nce.sca  MOnte alid Mariquiha. The American  loss is now conservatively estimated at  10' killed and 130 wounded,  Manila, March 25���3:45 p.m.-���The American losses, reported up to noon today*  were eight killed and seventy wounded.  The loss to the enemy is heavier than  during any previous engagement.  Over Questions That Concern   the Commercial Interests of Spokane's Only Rival  for the Trade of Kootenay.  The members of the special committee  of the South Kootenay Board of Trade  who were commissioned ,to interview  Robert Kerr, traffic manager of the Canadian Pacific's lines west of Lake Superior,  upon the subject of freight rates into and  out of Nelson had an interview with Mr.  Kerr this afternoon.  As the members of. the. committee had  only been appointed on the previous evening, they did not have their case as well  in hand, as they,might have, had they  ;been accorded more time; but they had a  lengthy interview with Mr. Kerr, iu  which the;questi6n of rates was discussed  in a general way, and received an assurance trom him. that when the case is presented to hiui clearly in the form of a report, that he will do what' he can to remove any just cause for complaint wliich  the merchants may have.  .For the sake of expedition, Mr. Kerr  suggested, to the members of the committee; thtit iii the presentation of the case  to him, they.should endeavor to be as fair  as possible, aiud confine,themselves to a  statement, of what they; consider their  grievances. He further asked them to  state the goods upon which they considered the company's rate discriminated  against Nelson. V.  With"respect to the manner in which  any possible remedy should be made, Mr.  Kerr suggested that the method had better be left to the railway^ company. As  to whether any reductions which might  be made'should be upon the straight rate  into Nelson, or in the form of a rebate on  re-shipments to adjacent points, Mr.  Kerr considered was a matter which  should be left to the company, so that  any changes decided upou would* not  clash with other arrangements which the  company might have.  Although the conference with Mr. Kerr  did not lead to anyactual result, the members of the committee are very well pleased with the manner in which they were  received,,aud are confident that when  their grievances are placed before.him  that a remedy,will be found tor them.  *  playground and the cheque in payment  would be sent up.

They were made members of the board by resolution without  the formality of a ballot.    .  The resolution appointing Mr. Galliher  was moved byT. G.

Both Shipments Went to Northport.  Julien & Audet this week  made a shipment   from   the   Blackcork    mine,   near  Ymir, to theLe Roi smelter at Northport.  The shipment   consisted of   twenty-one  tons and carried sixty-three ounces gold  and   108 ounces   silver, the   value of   the  shipment being $135.).   The  Porto   Rico  mine, which is only eighteen miles i'rbm  Nelson, this week shipped twenty tons of  gold concentrates to the Le Roi smelter  at Northport.   They  carried one and a  half ounces gold to the ton, and the consignment was valued at $000.  J. J. Campbell of the Hall Mines, Limited, addressed the board of trade last  night on the lead question. He has a plan  of his own for improving present conditions, which he says should meet with the  approval of the Canadian miner, smelter  and lend manufacturer. His plan was to  induce the government to permit lead  mined and smelted in Canada, but refined '  in the United States, to re-enter Canada  free of duty. As the United States government already permitted the smelting  and refining of foreign lead in bond, there  would be no difficulty in the way of putting the new plan into effect.  As matters stand at present, the American smelters pay the Canadian miners tbe  New York price for lead, less the United  States   duty,   and as   all Canadian  lead  bullion atpresent has to go to the United  States, the Canadian smel ters do the same.,  Neither in the case of the American or the  Canadian  smelter was the duty ever actually   paid.   The  lead  going   into  the    '  United States  was refined in bond and  used by the American smelters for their  '  export trade.   The American smelters in  offering the  rates which they do for the   .  treatment of Canadian lead, take into ac-*  count   in  connection   with   their  treatment   rate the  amount which they save  though     not    being    obliged    to    pay  the      United      States      import     duty.  It should not be thought that the United  States smelters made a clean profit of the  amount saved.through the export of Canadian leads, because as the one and a half  cents per pound were taken into account  in. the fixing of  the   treatment rate, it  would   merely   mean that higher treatment rates would be charged should this   -  saving be lost to the smelters.  With   respect to the lead imports received   into   Canada, Mr. Campbell said  that the imports of lead at present were  greater than the lead product of all the  mines    of    , Kootenay.      This     showed '  that   there    was    already  a   Canadian"  market      for       Canadian     lead,      and  it      was.    .absurd     that     before  "the '���  product  of    the   Canadian   lead   mines'  could reach the Canadian lead manufac-   :  turers it had to pass through the United  States refineries and be subject to a Can^ -*���  adian duty upon re-entry" into Canada." '"���  At present there was imported, into Canada annually 0,000,000 pounds of raw lead,  upon  which a duty-of-15 per cent was  paid.    The result of this  was that the  Canadian lead manufacturer.ina country  .in which lead was produced, had to pay   .  the world's'market.price for lead, plus the  freight .to London, plus the freight back  from London,  plus 15 per cent duty at  the Canadian frontier.   It could therefore  be easily understood  that if-these two  freight rates and 15 per cent duty could, ba  saved to the'lead manufacturers of the east    '.  it would place them upon a better footing  in their attempt not only to supply the  local market, but the export field as well.  There was a. great end growing market  for lead in the Orient, and if the Canadian  lead. manufacturers could secure a foothold* in the export trade a sufficient market would be created for Canadian lead to  make it profitable to operate a Refinery  in  Kootenay.     As-refined   lead   on   the  Pacific cosist would have a freight, preference of ��$18  per   ton   over   lead  at the  refineries on the Atlantic,"the advantage *  which the Kootenay refinery would have   "  in supplying lead for theOrient could be  .  easily understood.  SLOCAN   CONCENTRATES.  Representations from European smelt-'  ing works are being received by several of  "theSlocarT"properties"iifquirifig-for zinc-  ores. The works are prepared to accept  and pay for all mineral giving returns of  30 per cent or greater pf .metallic zinc.  One of the loading lake properties is arranging for a test shipment of twenty  tons, which will be shipped in a few  weeks.  11.

Burtnaster, whq is interested in  the German Mining & Milling Company,  whose properties are situated on GeVmah  mountain, on the east side of Kootenay"  lake,   returned    yesterday   from   a   six-; :  months' visit to Chicago.   Mr. Bun-haste..  reports that a number of Chicago' eoxd-  panies were organized last summer to operate in the Klondyke, but in nearly every  case   they were  unsuccessful, and   it  is  not  unlikely   that,   during  the  coining  summer,   a number of  Chicago men will  take a look through Kootenay for investments  in   mining   properties.    Development-work will be started on the German  group as soon as the snow goes off the  mountain. THE TMBIWE:  NELSON, B. C. SATURDAY, MARCH J>8,  1800.  If  hi  .'

J^ST;at present, the management bf the  ��:' Ctlhaiiian   Pacific Railway  Gohipahy is  %/mpstVanxious to make the people of Can-  ���b "a(Ja,:b4lieve; that Canada's great railway is  ���'-��� "the.ona patriotic cSOrppration ih Canada,  ���?and.ithat it-is being operated with a single  n  eye "to Canada's ihteirests.   If this Is so,  whyisit"thatitfie:matte produced ai the  Trail slnelter, w_ii6h is an appendage of  " th.).Canadian Pacific' Bailway Company,  is forwardfed to smelters at Kansas City,  Missouri, United States of America*   in  preference to the Sail Mines smelter at  Nelson,  British Columbia, Dominion of  Canada ?   The Hall   Mines smelter tuan-  kgeth'etit is most anxious  to secure the  matte of the Trail smelter and convert it  into -blister" copper.  Those who have read the letters of the  Canadian Pacific railway and Hall Mines  officials, and have noted the warm regard  which the representative of each company  professes that his company has for the  other, must be surprised that the warm  regard of so powerful a company as the  Canadian Pacific railway should be of  such little benefit to bhe Hall Mines, Limited, in its efforts to build up a smelting  industry in Kootenay.  A RESULT of the preference shown  to American smelters by the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company in the disposition of the matte of the Trail smelter is  that the Hall Mines, Limited, will be unable to profitably operate its reverbera-  tory and refining plant at Nelson, as the  amount of matte produced from the Silver  King ores is insufficient to keep the plant  profitably employed continuously.  If the practical working out of the  sympathy of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company for the enterprise of the  Hall Mines, Limited, has been of no  greater benefit to the latter company than  to effectually cripple one branch of the  company's business, the people of Nelson  may be pardoned for receiving with some  skepticism fresh assurances of patriotic  sympathy.   ;.-...

A Frontier Stratagem.  First post had gone on the bugle at Fort  Saskatchewan, and the major.was sitting  on  the porch of his quarter.0, discussing  with his adjutant the details of a practice  inarch arranged the following week for B  Troop.   The hard blue ofthe sky changed  to purple, theu to steel-gray, and Saturn  appeared low down on the western horizon.     Over   the   level   stretches  of   the  prairie    the   night   wind   blew   softly,  rustling the yellow grass.   Ifc was peculiarly soothing to the two officers, smok-.  ing in lazy contentment after an arduous  day  in the   blazing August  sun.   They  paused iu their chat, and their thoughts  drifted to other lands; they saw  faces,.  the pensive faces of women and the laughing   ones of  little children,   while   they  watched the stars come out, one by one,  iu   the   deepening  dusk.    They  remembered that those same stars shone over  the homes which sheltered those women  and children ;' they seemed like sentinel  eyes keeping tireless vigil over those loved  ones,    separated   from   them   by    long  leagues of hill and plain and by the vicissitudes of a soldier's  calling; and their  hearts warmedto their friendly twinkling.

Twenty minutes later the fbnfc details  ptillBd out of Fort Saskatchewan on a  bliud search for as choice a pair of blacklegs as might have been found anywhere  within a hundred miles.  "Up to the Winter before some of the  Saskatchewan fellows had Cultivated the  idea that they knew a little about the  game of poker, but after ''Qrackerbox"���  baptized tVilliam McCorkle���had dwelt  among then, for a month they had been  driveh stubbornly,to the conviction that  somehow they had made an error of judgment. A little earlier Calgary had been  a flower, & night-blooming cereils, from  the professional gambler's point of .view,  but the bloom had worn off; it had become too slow and staid, and Craekerbox  had heard of the Saskatchewan game and  moved north. He thought there might  be a profitable opening for him there, and  he was correct. His operations at the  green-table had been quite satisfactory to  himself, and necessarily anything but  satisfactory to any one else. Still, the  gaine went on, aud Craekerbox continued  to pull down his jack-pots with.complacent regularity, until one night things  happened. It had been his deal, of course.  He was discovered with four nines in his  hand, and as three were held among the  other players round the board, Cracker-  box was called on for explanations, which  he gave���at the point of a six-shooter.  Tbey carried the wounded man home and  Craekerbox to the guard-house. He had  done fatigue duty on the woodpile aud,  round the kitchen sink under the eye of  an unsympathetic sentry, and, while he  did not say so, thought it was no sort of  occupation for a gentlemanly pi'ofessional  gambler. He had been awaiting with  feelings of deep distrust the departure of  the next stage, which should carry him to  the territorial peri to abide events while  the sick man lingered. Perhaps they  would even show so little.deference to his  cloth and sensitiveness there as to put  him on the stone-pile with absconding  bank officers and other low violators of  Dawson City, Yukon District.  the law! The thought made his nostrils  curl. "But now," as he said to himself on  the night of his escape, "we have changed  all that," The stage would depart without him.  Milligan, the other fugitive, was a promoter; and Milligan was in trouble, as  promoters now and then are apt to be.  He had been the chief instrument in the  mutiny that had occurred in B troop  three months before, and was serving a  year at hard labor in the guard-house for  his. zeal in a cause which had been  promptly frowned down.  Early in the morning on the third day  after the escape, two cavalrymen were  riding across the prairie toward a distant  log shack beside the trail which connected  Calgary with Saskatchewan. It was a  stopping-place for travelers and the only  house in twenty miles.  "They'll sure stop at Bennet's and eat,"  said sergeant Kay. "We'd best not ride  too close." They drew aside into a bluff  of poplars, aud fastened their horses  among the trees. "Now," continued the  sergeant, "take a walk to the right and  come in below the window in the back of  the shack. That knoll and the stacks will  give you all the cover you require; mind  you don't show yourself. I'll shy round  by the left and get to the front door.  When ifc opens, hold your gum on 'em  from the window.  Inside Bennet's, two men were breakfasting at a rough pine table. From the  manner in which they ate, ifc might have  been inferred that it was long since they  had tasted food.  "Hell!" said the smaller of the two, a  youngish, compact, sallow man, with a  carefully pointed, narrow black mustache,  pausing for a minute as Bennet set a  second heaping plate of meat on the  table. "This is great! Ifc would take all  B Troop to chase me from* such a feed."  "Elegant," assented his companion, with  a mouth full of steak. "Shtill I'm not  askin'to see any av th'clan. Ut's good  riddance, any ways ye take ut, an' I hope  ther's as many moiles betune us as ther' is  behoind us." '.  The door creaked a trifle on its wooden  hinges.

"Don't be downhearted, me son," he returned. "They can't give me too much of  a good thing. I'll ask them-to let me have  it."  "Well, Mr. McCorkle," said Kay, "now  you're wearing government jewellry, we  can be more sociable. I guess you haven't  finished your breakfast yet.

And since you're so hospitable, if Mr. Bennet will be good enough  to fry a little more steak, we'll eat with  you. I guess you know better than to  make any breaks," he added, significantly, looking from one prisoner to the other.  ''Too busy to think of it," returned  Craekerbox, sitting down to the table  again. "Kind of a tough proposition,  this, sergeant," he added a moment later,  after an ineffectual attempt to cut his  meat; "tryin' to handle a meal with your  wrists sawin' one against the other, like  cattle in a yoke."  Kay glanced at Hatherfcon.   "Help him  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  D.  R.  WILKIE, General Manager  NELSON BRANCH  A general banking business transacted.  - Savings bank department.

"Oh, I can't allow that!" protested the  gambler. "I'll manage." He seized the  meat in his fists and tore it between his  teeth, like a dog.  "Hei-e,- quit that!" exclaimed Kay.  You're a human, at least��� notan animal."  He took out his keys and unlocked one  handcuff. "There, I'll let you eat decently, and not like a pagan, if you'll promise  not to try to escape."  A sudden brightness flashed into the  gambler's eyes, but there was nothing of  it left in the look he turned on Kay, as  he replied with a bland smile: "Sure  thing. I'd promise anything under the  circumstances. That's easy. I say, sergeant, you're real obliging. I'll see that  you're mentioned in orders." ,  "See that you keep you're promise;  that'll be sufficient," said Kay, shortly unlocking a handcuff of the other man.  Craekerbox laughed provokingly. "Now  sergeant, I like your jokes. You loaded  down with deadly weapons, and us "  Sergeant Kay was naturally a kind  man. Also, he dearly loved a game of  poker, and, therefore, perhaps unsuspected by himself, nutured a secret admiration for this cool desperado, who  looked on life as a game of chance, and  took good or ill luck indifferently, as it  came, with imperturbable good humor.  But perhaps it was hardly discreet in the  sergeant to allow his amiable disposition"  to influence him to the extent of freeing  his prisoner's hands. ;  During the meal the talk .drifted to  poker. Kay, knew enough about the  game to have lost most of his pay a year  before. He was interested in Crackerbox's  professional skill. And when the gambler pushed back his chair after finishing  his coffee and remarked :   "Just let me  show you how that's done sergeant, before you put the bracelets on again," and  walked over to another table on which  lay a pack of cards, Kay did not demur,  but followed���he might learn something  which would help him retrieve his losses,  or perhaps even do better than that.  Hatherton was interested, too, and  stood beside the sergeant. Millingan was  still eating. Account for ifc as you may,  they appeared to have forgotten him���  perhaps because he had once been a fellow of B Troop, with a blank defaulter  sheet. Bennet apparently knew all he  wanted to about poker; he bustled around,  banging his tin dishes aud pans. The  noise enabled Milligan to slip up behind  the troopers unobserved.  "You see," said Craekerbox, picking up  the thread of his story again, "there was  fifteen hundred dollars in the pot and  they'd all dropped out except Wat Batty  and me. I took the deck in my left hand"  ���"it was (supremely interesting���"like  this, and 'Cards?' says I. 'I want one,'  say Bat. I gave it to him. 'I'm takin'  three, myself,'says I, while he looked at  his hand- and I took 'em. They were good  ones, arid they came right out o' the deck,  here, like that���see?"  "Hands up!" Ifc was Milligan who-  spoke. The two troopers faced about and  each looked into the unfriendly muzzle of  his own revolver, which Milligan had  deftly extracted from its holster as he  leaned over its possessors shoulder.  "Get them up, now, quick !" he repeated.  Craekerbox laughed his exasperating  laugh. "Yes, I would if I was in your  place, sergeant," he remarked. "Everything has been real pleasant so far be?  tween us this morning, and we wouldn't  like to have any misunderstanding, now  we're about parting from you. Oblige ns.  Did you notice how that game came out ?  Funny how it goes,' ain't it ? Luck with  you one minute an' the next it's with the  The Tremont Hotel  IV|AL0J.E & TREGILLUS  PROPRIETORS  Headquarters for Miners and Prospectors  other fellow. I didn't know you understood the sign language so well, Milligan.  You tumbled handier than a, tailed steer.  You must have belonged to the Invin-  cibles before you left the ould counthry.  What was your number?"  Bennet looked on stoically while, with  some difficulty, Craekerbox removed the  handcuffs and replaced them on the  wrists of his late captors. In accomplishing this the gambler hit upon what he  regarded as a neat arrangement. " He  stood Kay and Hatherton back to back  and divided a pair of the cuffs between  them on either side, securely linking  them together. Bennet did not propose  to risk his health in any attempt to uphold the dignity of the law. Why should  he? From an abstract point of view it  seems rather a peculiar fact; that there  should so seldom be apparent auy strong  general antipathy toward the man who  has done nothing worse than shoot  another man openly. It is only the  wretch who lays unrighteous hands upon  a woman���the Bill Sikeses of this world���  vvho find all doors of hope, of human forgiveness and forbearance shut against  them.  "You've been real hospitable, Mr. Bennet, and I just hate to put you out any ;  but there are times, you understand when  a man has to burn all his crossed bridges,  and this looks to me like one qf the times.  It's quite a ways to where we're going,  and I guess you won't hold it against us  if we rope you up with the others."  They bound Kay's and Hatherton's  ankles, and Craekerbox walked Bennet to  his bunk in.the corner and tied him ori it  hand and foot. Then, as he stood with  his back to the others, he pulled a bill out  of the silk handkerchief about his neck,  winked and held it up so that the host  could see the "50" printed On the corner,  and then pushed it into Bennet's waistcoat-pocket.    Milligan then went to the  corral, and turned out Bennet's stock, and  brought the troop horses from the bluff.  "Well, so long, sergeant," said Cracker-  box, as he stood beside Kay's saddle.  "We'd be glad to spend another half-hour  in your company, but you understand  we've no time to waste in social entertainment. We.thank you for a real pleasant  ruawnin' and for bringin' down these  horses for our use. My feet was plumb  playin' out, but I reckon we'll get on now.  If you look real hard, boys, you'll find the.  keys of them cuffs in the grass not more'a  a hundred yards from here ; and, Bennet,  your bosses won't stray so far but what  you'll be able to pick 'em up to-morrer.  Good day, sergeant. If you ever come  down my way look me up. I wont't forget your consideration.   I won't, honest."  He.sprang into the saddle aud clattered  off, but at a hundred yards he stopped  and drawled over his soldier:  "And, oh, I say, sahgeant, remembeh  me to the majah ! And tell him I said,  with my compliments, he wa'n't to fo'get  to mention you in o'dehs!"  Then the outlaws spurred across the  prairie in the direction of that Line beyond which, lay another government,  driving Bennet's loose horses before them,  and that was the last the two troopers  saw that day of Craekerbox and Milligan,  In after years I sat often of an evening  oyer Scotch with Kay, when he no longer  wore government clothes or nursed an  ambition to shine at poker, but had married a "girl" and settled down to raising  cattle and a family. He spoke of many  things, but he ; never told me what his  his feelings were '-as he lay through that  hot August afternoon on the floor at Bennet's, counting the slow hours, until a  traveler: came along near dusk and released him, and I never asked.

No evidence was offered by  the prosecution and the charge was dismissed. ���  Drowned inJ Six Feet of Water.  The finding of John Evans' body at  Rosebery was due tb the backing up of  the Slocan with the transfer barge, which  stirred up the water in the vicinity. The  body was in only six feet of water and  was lying on the sand, the imprint of the  limbs being plainly discernible. Anyone  passing over the spot iu a row boat could ���  have seen the body, as it evidently had  not moved since Evans fell overboard  from the barge. Evans had been on the  Slocan but a short time, and had been in  hard luck.
