A hurry-up injunction to litigants over milling property, is  contained in the judgment entered today  by justice Walkei.i in Dunlop vs. Haney,  in tin adverse action under the Mineral  Act.  The plaintiff took out his writ in  August, .1897, but did not serve it, and in  August'of the following year applied for  a renewal which was granted. The defendant now applies for an order that tlie  renewal order be set aside, as the plaintiff  had not taken steps to promptly continue  tbe suit as required by the act.  Justice Walkem granted the application with costs, remarking: "Were I to  do otherwise 1 should be overriding the  provision of the legislature, which is evidently one of public policy, as its aim is  to secure as far as possible a speedy adjustment di mining disputes, and thus  promote the development of the mining  interests of the country. It assuredly  would be a most, mischievous thing to  hold that a plaintiff might in the face, of  this provision take out a writ, put it in  his pocket, keep it there for nearly, twelve''  months, and then, as in this case, make a  sort of spasmodic effort to serve it at the  last moment.

Foster called the attention of the minister of customs to the  iieAvsptiper reports to the -effect that the  Canadian police had refused to allow  liquor, conveyed by American customs  officers from Skagway, to cross the summit of the pass. He said that in consequence, the American authorities had  refused to allow Canadian liquor going  into the Yukon to go through in bond  from Skagway.- The minister of customs  in reply said he had heard nothing in  regard to the matter.  Colonel Prior of Victoria was the ; first  'speaker in the adjourned debate.- He said  he Avas afraid the  subject Avas so  large  that he would be obliged to take  more  than ten minutes.

Colonel  /prior  said  his   words "No, no," were  in-  'tended to apply, not to flags floating together as representing  tavo  nations, but  Avere intended to apply to two flags floating together iu the place of honor on an  official boat.  This led to a complication Avhieh ended  in Mr. Foster, the opposition critic, being  called to order by the speaker.  As soon as colonel. Prior  had made his  explanation, Mr. Boumssa read a   quotation from Hansard to show  that colonel  'Prior must have meant what he hail just  repudiated.'   -  .��� Dealing with the Yukon charges, colonel Prior -.aid'chat if practical 'men from  British .Columbia had been sent up tp the  Yukon a.s oflicials there would have been  uo scandals. , n *   ���  Leigh ton McCarthy, who succeeded his  uncle, the late Dal ton McCarthy as representative of East Sinicoe, was the next  speaker.

Alderman Fletcher tiiid alderman  Thomson aiid alderman Hillyer lhet this  afternoon as the public Avorks vopu  mittee and decided to ask the fiimnee  committee of the council to raise $00,000'  for public works��� .$30,000 t(> be used on  the waterworks system, $ln,()00 On the  electric light system, and $1,5,000 on the  sewer sysjtem. It is safe to assume that  the finAnce (���onujiittee cannot raise tiny  such sums,: for the ratepayers will not  give their consent. No such stuns  tire reipiired to be .expended this  year. and the public works  committee have no data on which to base  any such expenditures. Before $30,000  are expended on the water works system,  it should be clearly showif that such expenditure would be to tlie best advantage. .Expending $15,000 On the electric  light system on any recommendation yet  laid before the council would be that  much money actually wasted. The sewer  system-can be 'extended without borrowing a dollar. What data, has the public  works committee got for the contemplated expenditure?     Absolutely none.

CUKI.KNT RATE OK INTEREST PAID  A   TINY   BROWN   HERO,  And His Reward.  The sun would soon sot. Already there  was a. cool feeling iu the aii*. It had been  market-day in Puebla, and now the little  family was going home to one ofthe Indian villages near Cholula. Hundreds of  such groups were scattering along the  road. 'Maria was running in a little dogtrot, carrying in her reborn, on her back,  Jesus. Jose, the father, was solemnly  seated on a pile of garden-stuff on the  back of the little burro. Lagging 'a little  behind the mother came .Juanito.  They all had heavy burdens. On the  mother's back, besides the baby, was a  load of corn, and her arms were full of  oddly shaped and painted earthern jars  and baskets. There-was no outward and  visible evidence of the father's load, but  to do him justice it was so great he was  unable to walk with it. Marin wore for  a skirt a length of dark-blue cloth that  cnme to her ankles, wrapped tightly  about her back and hips,* with a few folds  in front. Twisted around her waist was  the usual red cotton sash. Partly covering the upper half of her body was a  white chemise, the yoke and short sleeves  ornamented Avitli beads of red and black.  On her head she had the tall straw hat  that the Indian women wear; about her  neck "was a coral necklace. All the -In-  diaii women are clothed thcVsame, the  "difference being in the quality of material and degree of cleanliness.* ���  The country-people in Mexico have no  children's modes. The little people look  like grown-up people seen through the  wrong end of an .opera-glass. Junnita,  . with round, fat, brown face, while" teeth,  big mouth, and - eyes which shone starlike from out a mop of black hair, was  dressed exactly like' his father in shirtJ  and long trousers of unbleached cotton,  with a red sash to liold his clothes up.  A leather band went round his forehead  and supported the pack he carried���a  large enough burden i'or so wee a boy. In  one little hand he carried his conical hat  of coarse" straw ;* witlf the other, as he  trotted along, lie tried to shift his load a  bit, and so relieve himself. He did it slyly, for he did not want his father to  think he was not a big man. Indeed he  was���he would be five in a few days���  and he was going to have a present on  his saint's day, which was also his birthday.. " tie co'fild. do as -he "-.fished Vvitli it.

He Ires.*  - titled'be'tween ah ^.art.ierlt goose, with a  whistle in tlie neck, and a dulce���like  our rock-candy. The goose would be an  ephemeral thing at best, although the  Whittle���ay. Dibs! but that whistle  cOuld be heard a kilometer. A turn, of  the hand, however, ahd it wis gone.  Thei*e are kites which sjng when they get  up in the air, but, Dios de mi alma! what  riches are necessary. Four ee'iitavos for  the kite n-hd one for the string!, He Iind  thought carefully. He cDuld buy the  f-triilgtit once and get the kite in font'  more saint's days, for Surely he would go  on having them, and it was likely Dona  Ynes would always remember them.  ���No! No!    After all, the dulce was best:  His face grew brooding as he built his  castle���founded on a cent. His mother  should have a suck���two slicks, in fact,  the baby could like it, and Nito, the  burro, but his father, no! For only yesterday had he beaten him for getting too  much water on the clay to make the ollas.  He closed his eyes in ecstasy ; properly  managed, the candy, Avhieh was of the  durability of old red sandstone or the  quartz it greatly resembled, should last,  by licking 'delicately and sucking with  moderation, until another birthday.  The sun was throwing long, golden  lances across the plain of Cholula, with  its scores of church toAvers. The family  had finished the supper of frijoles and  tortillas, risen from the spring, by the  Avayside, and resumed its journey. As  before, the father led, jogging along on  tlie burro; the mother running beside,  bending forward from her load. Juanito,  as his short legs grew .more, AS*eai:y,. fell  farther behind. The mother looked .over-'  her shoulder several times, but she  felt no uneasiness, for it had happened  before that, being too tired to go on, Tie  Pedrito had taken him to. his jacal on his  burro   and   brought   him   home   in   the  morning.  The road made a sudden dip. On one  hand was a deep barranca (steep ravine),  the sitles covered with shrubs and close  growth. Juanito, boy-like, was seeing  how near he could trot along the verge  without losing his balance. He Avas as  sure-footed as a mule, but a long serpentine root, the same ash-color as the soil,  caught his foot in a loop, and in a moment  he was twisted o/T'h is feet and rolling  down- the barranca. It so happened no  one saw him, and little Indian stoic that  he was, he made no sound.  When he reached the bottom, bruised  and out of breath, a savage hand caught  his throat and savage eyes met his.    A  few muttered words and the butt-end of  a  heavy   reA-olver   came   down    on   his  shaggy little head, and then to one side  was  brutally tossed   the senseless  heap.  There  Avere three of them  crouched under an overhanging ledge���three sinister-  looking bandits, Aveariug heavy felt hats,  and with red blankets drawn across tlieir  mouths.    They sat still  until about the  time all travel had ceased on the high-  way .-above.';-'.'They Avere planning, in Ioav  Aroices,  the division  of the  spoils when  Juauito's  hard little Indian head  began  to throb consciously.     The first thing he  heard to understand Avas that Miguel Avas  to  turn the coach   over exactly  at that  spot,  and   that Don  Hypolite  had   the  money for the year's pulque from his San  Martin  hacienda, and   that  Dona   _trnes  had been to a baile in Puebla, and had on  her mother's diamonds.  "If the fall does not kill," groAvled one,  ���'a tap of the good friend here"��� and  Juanito heard him slap his pistol.  Juanito heard and, though sick and  da/.ed, comprehended. He could not see  how he could prevent it. He knew that  when the coachman" lipped the carriage  down the barranca Dona. Ynes would be  hurt, and. if she were not hurt enough  they would kill her. .Ah Ihe would not  get his centavo. if Dona Yiics was killed.  The thought moved him���poor, little, dying baby!:        .   ' *-  "He tried'to raise .himself, but tho effort  increased the deadly nausea. A night  Avind avus blowing and rustled the leaves;  under coA'er of that noise he could move  freely, if he could keep keep from crying.  And keep from crying he Avould, for even  his short. life had given him self-control  and courage. He was not an American  child, who screams wheu it is explained,  kindly, that lie can not ha/vc the moon.  He began to move, pulling himself up by  inches, forced often to rest from sheer  anguish, but never a moan was wrung  from his lips by the torture.  Several hours must have passed before  he reached the highway. When there,  he could not tell which way to go. He  had lost his sense of direction, always extraordinary in Indians. He thought he  heard a shout from befow, as though the  liien had misse/l hini; so* Without further  cogitation, he dragged himself along" the  ^road.==He-=was-Coldi=Avith=a.n=aAvfiil=chill*  that struck Out from the bones. The  blood steadily ran down his" face from  the Crack in his skull. He Avas afraid he  Avas going in the wrong direction ; before  this he Should have heard the clip, clip of  tlie high-stepping black _mu.es. His  tongue \. as getting too big for his mouth*  rind his heart roared like a Wild  thing  withiu. him.  Suddenly he heard the rumbling of the  carriage, and he fancied he could see the  shining flanks of Don Hypolite's beautiful thorough-breds. He gave a cry,  another; and another. They Avere fl riving rapidly���and driving by!  As they swept past, for the first time)  he burst out crying, nnd sank in the dust.  Dona Ynes, inside the carriage, Avas jerking violently at the cord.  "Why does he not stop? Oh papa, call  Miguel to stop. Some one called me;  someone is hurt by the road."  Don Hypolite put his head out and ordered Miguel to drive slowly back. The  guilty 'scam]) did so reluctantly. The  carriage halted by the side of little sobbing Juanpand Dona Ynes jumped out.  She had dropped her fur coat, for the  night Avas warm, and her bare arms  shone milky-white through the meshes of  a lace mantilla. The mantilla��� av��.s fastened by a gold-and-turquoise comb to  the high knot of dusky hair, and' the  ciuwed edged flapped coquettishly about  her roguish face.  Regardless of her satin ball-gown, she  knelt in the dust by Juanito. After he  had told her and Don Hypolite of the  plan to l'ob and murder them, she carried  him herself in her round .arms to the  ���carriage, while Don Hypolite, portly aud  courtly, in eArening-dress, Avitli a half-  dozen decorations glittering on his breast,  Avent back calmly, and pulled Miguel by  tlie coat-collar off his seat. Relieving  the rascal of his pistol and kicking him  soundly, Don Hypolite took the reins and  drove" back to Puebla, leaving Miguel  rubbing his aches and Avondering how it  happened.  The motion of the earring. so jarred  tha little pain-racked frame that Dona  Ynes, thinking that it must be a matter  of a few moments, asked her father- to  stop. Juanito Avhispered to her that he  could not breathe, that heAvishecl to be  outdoors, Avhere he could see the stars; so  Dona Ynes, tenderly holding the child,  sat in the grass by the road.  Alas! he could'breathe no better under  the quiet stars. There Avas the croaking  of frogs and the song of night-birds,iind  the soft wind rustling through the Ioav  shrubs. He lifted a wistful face, and  Avith long, laboring breaths he managed;  to say:  ��� ' ���" ���'.���������-;"��� " y  "1 waut myr.centavp.".'....���-"���  Dona Ynes,.keeping back her sobs Avith  diificultyisforishe dids hQt"AA,rish,toi���distrfiss^  the patienj*:���&hilq,^  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.

NELSON, B. C.  KASLO, B. C.  SANDON, B. C.  The Eight-Hour Law.  NI.I.SOV. April IHll. ISiKI.  To tho l.ditor of The Tribune :  Tlie present government is certainly breaking the  roeord of liritish Columbia legislation, and much could  he slid iu its praise. It has douo much for tlie beuetit of  the people. It. promises to transform Ihe country from a  paradise for plundering promoters to a desirable country  I'or a tlirifly and happy people. Hut it has, apparently,  an element of great weakness, namely, the willingness lo  recall wise measures if it can he made to appear that  they are not sanctioned by the people they are intended  to benelit. A good general will always consider his retreat, but never be willing to ret real as soon as his enemy  desires it. The eight-hour law and other wise measures  have, I believe, been placed in this perilous position. Why  should the government consider petition . signed by men  who are not directly interested in the question at issue/  The otll. ials of mining companies have used all possible  methods to force men to sign petitions against their best  interests, whether it is the eight-hour law in the Kootenays or the coal screen regulations at. tlio Union mines  on Vancouver Island. It is this kind of oppression from  which the government should shield its poorer citizens.  A government that would legislate against thieves only  as long as the ihieves were willing to have it.so would be  no govcrniucntutu.il. Business men need not tremble at  the Uirett that the mines would be shut down if the  eight-hour law is enforced, seeing that tho mines were  not bought for that purpose. Tho question would not  justify such action on the part of the mine owners. And  should it be done, the government could set tlie matter  right again by laws for that purpose.     I). C.
