 ���<���������:���*��  ^  A VERY TAME SESSION SO FAR  IN   THE   COMMONS.  The   Salisbury   Government    Has    Accomplished Nothing to Boast of and There  Appears to be Trouble in  Store.  Loxnox, April 1.���The first .section of  tlie parliamentary session terminated  with the adjournment for tho Master recess, mi id up to now the ministers can  not boast of any remarkable achievements. The chief event was the reading  of tlie London local government bill for  tho second time, but as tlio bill will receive most attention when it enters the  committee-stage, the government has no  reason for self-congratulation, especially  as its supporters as well as the opposition  are demanding important modifications.  The bill of the secretary of state for the  colonies, lion. Joseph Chamberlain, to  fsi.eilit.ito the acquirement of dwellings by  workmen has fallen flat, a.s everything  depends on the permission of the landlords.  The first matter of importance on the  commons reassembling will be the budget,  which lias been fixed for Thursday week.  The marquis of Salisbury, although  officially holidaying on the Riviera, is  keeping in close touch with the foreign  ofiice. "There has been a continual exchange of telegrams on the subject ofthe  recent developments in Samoa., and the  negotiations between the three interested  [lowers, which have been keeping his  hands full. In addition, messenges leave  London every other day with foreign  office despatches for the premier and minister of foreign affairs.  The Samoan blaze has been the leading  political topic of the week, and the drift  of the press comments litis been that the  matter was settled amicably between the  powers.

It appears from it that Esterhas-y  was,accused of sending three threatening  letters to president Faure. General Pel-  lieux testifier! that Esterha/.y told him  tliat he had received an offer of 000,000  francs from Jews, through the medium  of an English journalist, if he Avould confess that he * was the author of the  Bordereau.  Lieutenant Colonel-Paty du Clam testified that he heard that Esterhay.y intended Avriting to the German emperor,  and that he suggested to Esterha/.y to  write to president Fanre instead. Esterhay.y affirmed that the letters addresed to  president Faure Avere dictated by Paty  du Clam. This the hitter at first denied,  but when pressed by the president ofthe  court he admitted that he had drafted a  skeleton-of the letters.  Testimony by genera] De Boisdeffre  and (.titers proved that Esterhazy acted  as agent to the general staff, communicating infornmtion to the Libre Parole and  other neAVspapers. He violated tlie confidence .reposed in him and the staff  abandoned him.  At the close of the eA'idence the president of tlie court put three issues to his  colleagues, as- follows : First���Should  Esterhazy be retired, for habitual misbehaviour?

A special (-meeting of the city council  Avas held yesterday morning, at Avhieh  mayor Neelands and aldermen Fletcher,  Thomson and Kirkpatrick were present.

Macdonald ��fc Johnson had a  communication before the council in  Avhieh, as the agents for Reisterer & Company, they protested against the Avhole-  sale liquor dealer's tax, wliich the council has decided to impose upon  breAveries, instead of the wholesale  trader's tax. The former license calls  for the payment of $50 every six months,  A\-hile the wholesale traders' tax -was but  $10. The solicitqii- stated that their  clients were manufacturers and paid a  large sum to the Dominion government  for the privilege of manufacturing beer,  and for this reason they objected to.paying" any-other license beyond the ordinary 'wholesale trader's license. The solicitors said that the present Avas the first  year in Avhichan attempt Avas made to  collect any such license from breweries,  and they thought that before entering  upon expensive litigation it Avould be  well for the council to have a written  opinion from the city solicitor upon the  question. As a starter the lawyers said  they did not mind referring the members  of the council to the case of Severn a\s.  llegina. in Avhieh a similar question Avas  raised in the province of Ontario. In  this case the supremo court held that  such a license was a restriction upon  trade and commerce, and not like ordinary municipal licenses, a matter of police. For this reason it was hold that  the tax imposed Avas beyond the powers  of the legislature of the province.  The council decided to  turn the letter  over to the city solicitor.  A "communication Avas read from H. D.  Ashcroft, stating that he had raised his  premises on Hall street to grade, and  asking that the street be filled to grade. '  The letter Avas referred to the city engineer, Avith, instructions to - have the  sideAvalk raised to grade.  PUBLIC   WORKS   COMMITTEE    *  Lets Contracts.

Toronto and Montreal parties are  seeking bonds on a number of properties  and  Spokane   operators  are  once  more  turning their  attention   this   way.    The  Ten   Mile,   Springer   Creek  and Lemon  Creek camps, in   particular,  are  passing  out of the gloom that has oA*crshado\ved  them for the  past  two  years.    Much of  this is due to the change in the affairs of  the  Arlington,  on  Springer  creek.     A.  Betune, writing from Spokane, states that  tho    new    Arlington    management   has  $50,000 in the bank for development purposes.     This should place the group in a  position to pay regular dividends.     The  effect of tho deal on the camp is encouraging to those Avho have been holding on  so long.    Coupled   Avith   this   are other  movements indicating that a reaction for  tho better, has set in. THE TBTBUKE:  NELSON, B. C, SUNDAY, APRIL '>, 1899.  For the Ladies...

At Dawson, after the plaintiffs ih the  Fawcett investigation withdraw on the  grounds that they were not permitted to  go bflck far enough in making their  charges agflinst that official, conunis-  sioiier Ogilve pronounced Fawcett innocent, the charges against him not being  proven. During the course of tlie investigation evidence was brought out showing that major Walsh was retained by  the Young Conservative club of Ottawa  to secure information for them regarding  alleged crookedness of government officials in tile Yukon.    AV.is Walsh a spy ?  Tub Semlin govoi'iimeut have committed themselves on the eight-hour amendment to the Inspection of Metalliferous  Mines Act, and it is not likely they will  recede from their position. Were they  to recede it would show a weakness, and  even their opponents will not charge  them with being Aveaklings. The law  will be enforced, and the sooner mine  owners are made to realize that fact the  better it will be for the country. There  was no crying demand for the amendment, as both miners and mine owners  appeared to be* satisfied v>*itli existing  conditions. The mine owners of Rossland  have acted both fairly and- wisely in giving the law a working trial before .send-.  ing delegates to the government demand-'  ing its suspension.   Give the' kiwk fair.

"You are as good as dead," said tlio  doctor, looking steadily at Anatole.  Anatole staggered. He had come to  pass a cheerful evening' with his old  friend, Dr. Bard.iis,' the savant .whose  works on poisonous substances are so  well and favorably known, but one Avhose  excellence of heart and almost fatherly  kindness Anatole had been able to appreciate more than any one. And now all  of a sudden, without regard for-his feelings, without being prepared to hear it,  the-terrible prognostic is uttered'by so  great an authority.  "Unfortunate fellow," continued the  doctor, "what 'have ���'you done?"  "Nothing that I know of," stammered  Anatole, greatly troubled.  "Try to recollect. Tell me ' what you  have drank, what you have eaten and  ���what you have breathed;".  The lust word spokou by the doctor  was a ray of light to Anatole. That very  morning he had received a letter from  one of li is friends who was traveling in  India. In this letter had been a (lower  plucked on the shores of the Ganges by  the traA'eler���a llowor, red, warped and  of bizarre shape, the odor of which, lie  remembered well now, had seemed to  him strangely penetrating. Anatole  searched in his pocket-book and .took  - therefrom tho letter and flower in ques-  * lion, wliich he showed to the savant.  "Without doubt," exclaimed   tlie doctor, "it is the. Pyramenensis  Indica���the  fatal (lower, tho flower of death." "  "Do you really think so?"  "L am sure of it."  "But it is not possible. L am only  twenty-live years old. -1 feel myself full  of life and health."  "When did you open that fatal letter?"  "At nine "o'clock this morning."  "Well, tomorrow morning at the same  hour,  indeed at  the same moment, you  will  feel  a  sharp  anguish at the heart,  . audit "\Vull be all bvpr -��wi;th, you."  "And do ytali dnot JcuO^ any remedy,  ��� auyniekus 0f������'���y ''..-' ...'    ; V ���  "Koiie;" said M<_Vdoc��of, and[hiding "his  face -ill his haiids lie sank .backward iii aii  jii*_n-ehair, clicked W'itlJ.

With beads Of pdld perspiration on his  brow and his" thoughts confused. Anatole  moved along unconscious of *what was  =-passii'ig--ai'oiind7=hihir'Viid=llot=even=isus-  Ijecting that the streets were becoming  deserted. He wandered a long time  thus ; but at length, coining to & bench,  he sat down. ���  The rest did him good. Until theu 'lie'  had been like a man who has been struck  on, the head with a ehib, The effects of  the shock were disappearing, and he began now to collect his vagrant thoughts.  "My plight," thought he, "is that of a  pe.*son condemned to death. "Yet I can  still h0pe for mercy. By the way, how  much longer have I to live?"  He looked at his watch.  "It lacks three hours of morning. It  is time: I was in bed. I go to bed, indeed!  To devote the last Sad hours of my life  to sleep! No. I cah certainly do better  than that. But, what ? Farbleu! I  have it. I Avill draw up my last will and  testament."  A restaurant which remained open all  night was near by. Anatole entered and  sat down.  "Waiter, a bottle of champagne and a  bottle of ink."  He drank a glass and looked at his  writing-paper, reflecting: "To whom  shall I leave my six thousand francs income? I'have neither father nor mother  ���a fact whieh is lucky for them. And  among the persons who interest me I  can think only of one���Nieette."  Nicette was one of his forty-second  cousins, a charming young girl of  eighteen years, with fair tresses and  black eyes. Like himself she was an  orphan, and this community of fate had  long ago established a bond of sympathy  between them. His will Avas speedily  draAvn up. He left everything to Nicette.  When it was finished he drank a second  glass.'of champagne.  "Poor Nicette," thought he. "Her  guardian avIio knoAvs little of the world  except his class, which he teaches to play  on brass instruments at the-��� conserva-  And now that  - my  answer, I  polite.    But I  am tenacious,1  at your  tory, has bethought himself to promise  her hand to a brute, a sort of bully, whom  shoTletosts, because she loves another, as  she has avowed to me, although with reticence and an embarrassed air. Who is  this happy mortal? But he must be  worthy of her, since she has fixed her  affection on him. Good, gentle, coniely  and affectionate Nicette deserves an ideal  husband.' Ah, how Avell Avould she have  suited me for a Avife. It is an infamous'  tyranny to spoil her life by-giving her to  a brute. But why should I not be  Nicette's champion ? I have said it now,  and tomorrow morning I will begin, to  act. But tomorroAV morning Avill be too  late. Noav is the time to begin, if at all.  The hour is a little mal a propOs to see  people, but as I shall be dead in five hours  I don't care a sou for couveiitioiialities.  Yes, I'll do it���my life for Nicette."  It was four o'clock -in the morning  Avhen Anatole rang the bell at the house  of Nicette's guardian, M. Bousard. Badly  frightened and wearing his night-cap he  answered the door. .  "Is the house on fire?"  "No, my dear M. Bousard," replied Anatole, "I have conie for a chat."  "At this hour ?"  "I am at all hours pleased to see ypu ;  but you are not dressed, M. Bousard. Are  you going back to bed again ?"  "That's Avhat I'm going to do. But���  I suppose, monsieur, that to disturb me  in-this manner you must ha\re something  very important to say to me."  "Very important, M. Bousard. ft is  necessary that you give up your plan of  marrying my cousin Nicette to Al. Capen-  diac."  "Never, monsieur, never."  "But 1 say, yes."  "Monsieur, my resolution is taken. The  marriage Avill take place."  ���'[twill not."'

Bousard turned toAvard the  Avall,.grumbliug, "Did one ever see tho  like; to disturb a peaceful man, to rouse  him from his sleep, for the purpose of  of listening to such1 nonsense."

"Does that reason influence you?"  " Yes, and others besides."  "In that  cast* leave all to me.    Only  swear to me that if I obtain the consent  of Al.

"Number 100, Hue des Deux-Epees."  "I will go there.    Good-by."  "As for you,"   thought   Al.  Bousard,  "you are putting your head in the  lion's  mouth, and you will be  taught a lesson  that you deserve to learn."  Meanwhile   Anatole   hastened   to. the  address   indicated.      When   he   arrived  there it Avas six o'clock iu the morning.  "Ting-a-ling-ling."  "Who is there," said a deep voice from  within.  "Open. I am the bearer of a very important message from Af. Bousard."  He heard the noise of a safety chain  being displaced, and of a key with Avhieh  three locks were success_Arely opened.  "Here is a man well defended," thought  Anatole.  Finally the door A\*as opened. Anatole  found himself in the presence of a gentleman .with a larife, curled mustache,  aa*1io wore a fencing costume as his night  dress.  "Always ready, you see.    It is  my  in-,  vention."  The Avails of the ante-chamber Avere  hidden by suits of armor. In the little  parlor in Avhieh Gapendac conducted his  visitor, he saAV only weapons galore;  ataghaiis, poisoned arrows, sabres, one  and'two-handed SAA'ords, pistols, lances;  there was plenty there to make a timid  heart quail.  "Bah," thought Anatole, "what do 1  risk iioav? Two hours and a half at the  most.    Here goes."  "Alonsieur," said Anatole, "you are going to marry Mile Nicette?"  "Yes, monsieur."  "Alonsieur, you shall not marry her."  "Blood and thunder, and who will hinder me?"  "I will."  Gapendac looked askance at Anatole,  avIio was not a, large man, but Vvho  seemed very determined.  "Ah, young limn," said he, at length,  "you are lucky to find me in a pleasant  humor. Profit by it. Do you know that  I lnwe fought twenty duels, in which-J,  had the misfortune to slay five of my  adversaries and to wound the other! fifteen ? Once more I warn you to_ retire."  "I see," replied Anatole, "that you ;are  an adversary Avorthy of my steel, and  my desire increases to measure swords  -with* a man so redoubtable. Let us see.  Suppose Ave. fight with those tAvo swords  by the chimney, or these cavalry sabres,  or these���or Avhat do you say to these  curA'ed ataghaiis ? You don't decide ?  Why do you hesitate ?"  "I  AA'as  thinking  of your mother and;  the grief your death would cause her."  "I am an orphan. Do you prefer the  carbine, the pistol or the reArolver ?"  "Young mail, do not fool Avith these  firearms." ������[."���  "Are you afraid ?    You tremble."  "I tremble ?   Nonsense, it is the cold."  "Then  either   fight  or   renounce   the  hand of Nicette."  "I like your pluck. The braAre should  always be in harmony Ayitli each other.  Do you Avish me to confess something to  you?"  "Out Avith it."  "For some time past I luwe Avished to  free myself from this betrothal. But I  did not knoAv Iioaa- 'to go to Avork about  it. I Avould consent Arery Avillingly to  Avhat you desire of me, but you must understand that I, Capendac, can not have  the air of yielding to threats. Noaa* you  have menaced me."    -  If you need a  relin-  you  PIANO  ORGAN  VIOLIN  GUITAR  MANDOLIN  BANJO  "I AvithdraAV the menace."  "Then it is agreed."  "Will  you  write and sign your  quishment of Nicette?"  "I haA'e  so  much  sympathy for  that I can refuse you nothing."  Furnished Avith the precious paper,  Anatole hurried back to the residence of  Al. Bousard. He reached his door at  eight o'clock.  "Ting-a-ling-a-ling."  "Who is there?"  "Anatole."  "Be off" to bed," cried the professor,  Avrathfully.  "I have the consent of Al.   Gapendac.  Open, or I Avill have to break the door."  Al. Bousard opened it.  Anatole showed  him the paper, and going to  the  door of  Nicette's room called out:  "Cousin, rise, dress yourself quickly and  come doAvu."  Some minutes after, Nicette, fresh  as  the dawn, came into the little parlor.  "What is the matter?" she inquired.  "The matter is," aiiSAvered Al. Bousard,  "that your cousin is crazy."  "If that be so there is, at any rate,  method in my madness," exclaimed Ana-  tolh. "This very night, niy dear cousin,  I lnwe achieA'ed tAA'o things. Af. Capendac  has renounced his claim to your hand, and  your excellent guardian consents that  you shall marry Avhom you please."  "Really and truly, my guardian, am I  free to marry Anatole ?" ..  "Ha!" exclaimed Anatole.  "Then, I love you, my cousin."  At that moment Anatole felt his heart  beat rapidly. Was it by reason ofthe  pleasure Avhieh the unexpected aAwval of  Nicette had caused him? Was it the  pang predicted by Dr. Cardais? Was it  death?  "Wretch that I am!" exclaimed the  poor felloAV. "The cup of .happiness is  at my lips, and I am going to die without  tasting it."  Then feArerishly taking Nicette's hand  he told her all: Iioav he..had'received the  letter 'which contained the floAver, A\rhose  fragrance he had inhaled; and of the  prognostic of Dr. Bardais; Iioav he had  made his "will in her fa/yor, the steps he  had subsequently taken, and the success  Avith Avhieh his efforts had been eroAvned.  "And iioav," sighed he, "I must die."  "But it is impossible," said Nicette;  "the doctor is deceiA'ed.    Who is he?"  "A man avIio is neA'er Avrong in his diagnosis, Nicette���Dr. Bardais."  "Bardais,  Bardais !" cried Al.  Bousard,  -suddenly, bursting out laughing.    "Hear  what the morning paper says :  " "Clio learned Doctor Bardais has just been suddenly  stricken with mental alienation. Thc-mania from .-which  .he suffers is of a scientific character. It ib well known  that the doctor made a special study- of -poisonous substance:.. Ho believes now that all whom he meets are  poisoned, and endeavors to pcrsaadc them that such is  the case.
