It     is  uot the  big  dividends   that contribute  to the country's  prosperity  so much as  the  big  payrolls*.    Reduce  the payrolls  and  you   reduce the   country's   profits.  Every cent  taken  off the wages of the  miners   is that  much more to go  out of  the    country  into   the  pockets   of   the  shareholders, from which the country receives no benefit.    With  one-fourth   the  number of men employed the  silver-lead  mines  of  the  Slocan   have paid  better  dividends than the mines of any camp in  Kootenay.    There is less expense attached to mining  in this  camp  than in  any*  other.    And the only possible chance for  the country to receive even a small fraction of the profits taken out of the mines  is  through the  payrolls.    Reduce these  and tlio Slocan will will'be made  a'Chin-'  ese cam], at once,���cheap  for the   laboring man and business  man, but a  mecca  for the foreign companies  operating  our  mines.    Skilled miners are   paid $3.50 in  all other camps, and'why should they bo  asked to work for  $3 in the  Sloean, the  acknowledged high-grade wet ore  camp  of the northwest ?

It is argued by some that the mine  operatoi'S have the right to say what  they shall pity to their workmen. They  have. Tliey have tlie same right to say  what they will pay as the workmen have  to say what their labor is worth. Skilled  meu of any calling are worth for their  labor all they can possibly get in this or  any other country. And let this be remembered also, the men who employ  skilled labor will never pay any more for  it than they have to. Mining companies  are not philanthropists, neither are tlie  men who work for them. Both want  all they can get. The question that we  of the Slocau must look at is this: What  will most benelit the country, low wages  or high wages ? It is indisputable that  when wages are high the country is prosperous, and as wages are lowered prOs;-  perity diminishes. The condition of the  Slocan mines is such that tremendous  profits are made with very . small  forces    of   men   employed.

James  McDonald was chosen chairman, and  James Neelands secretary. The meeting  then got down to business. It was  stated that neither teams had any funds  or liabilities worth mentioning, so there  were no financial difliculties in the way of  amalgamation.  A letter was read from James Neelands  tendering his resignation as manager of  the first ball team. On motion of W. R.  McLean it was decided that the officers  of the old club should be accepted as officers of the newly organized club. A  mOtiou re-appointing James Neelands  manager of the new organization was also carried. W. R. McLean then moved  that an executive committee of three be  chosen, avIio also should choose the team.  This Avas carried and the following were  elected : Harry Houston, W. R. McLean  and Frank Dana Moore.  A discussion as to the ,next match ensued, and it transpired that Rossland,  Kaslo and Ymir were"all- looking for  matches with Nelson next Sunday. It  was decided to go to Rossland next Sunday if a final answer is received from  there in time. The team will be picked  today, and the nine will then choose  their captain.  The manager of the base ball team was  instructed to confer with the manager of  the lacrosse team with a view to putting  up seats on the recreation ground by  July 1st for the benefit of both teams,  and to obtain the necessary permission.  .

Before  the recent trouble over the eight-horn*  law was precipitated there Ave re close  upon 3000 miners employed iu Kootenay.  Tlie rate of Avages AViis $3.50 per day. The  policy of the mine owners' combine is to  reduce tlie rate of wages to $2.50 per  day by the importation of cheap miners  from the east. The effect of such a policy  Avould be the lessening by .153000 per day  of the purchasing poAver of the miners of  Kootenay. Is this what the interests of  the merchants'or the interests of the  province demand?  Noav that the management of the  Iloyal Canadian mine'-has followed the.  example of the Granite mine, and given  union .men a contract to perform Avork  on the Royal Canadian, it is again in  order for the Nelson Miner to 'show that  the mine oavu ers, combine has landed  another "knock-out   blow   on   the ������solar  ."��������� ���  . . ��� . ..  o-  -  plexus ofthe miners' iinion.  feiSi��s!f����7^  __biy^  ���Mifhokk-d'Of-pyAidi^  |��"���7��v_Y��*   "5J.Vi -,,4.

Just as the train was about to move,  an elderly man sprang on the step, and  entered the compartment. The door  slammed, the bell struck, and the train  moved away. Although annoyed by the  intrusion, the young couple continued  tlieir conversation in English, when they  were interrupted by their fellow-traveller.  in a much better English than tlieir own.  "Monsieur," he said, dryly, "if you have  any secrets to relate I would advise you  not to do so before me in English, as I am  conversant with that language. I am  sorry to intrude upon you, but this is the  only compartment I could find place in.  However, I Avill try to go to sleep."  And he faithfully tried to do so. But  his efforts were vain, and finally he drew  a book from his valise aud began to read.  Wheu he plunged into his sack he drew  therefrom a large roll of Bank of England  notes, and, showing them to Leon, asked  if he could change them at the next  town. Leon replied that it was probable  he could do so, as tlie road was much frequented by English travellers.  "When they reached the next town the  Englishman descended first.    After him  came Leon,   who endeavored to conceal  his   wife's  ankles tis she  descended   the  stops.-- Such are young husbands!    Suddenly  there dartedh from   the group bf  -loungers on the platform, a young man,of  - peculiar appearance,    lie was sallow and  unshaven;   his   eyes   were bleared   and  bloodshot; his clothing was shabby to the  last, degree.    His  once   black coat   was  buttoned closely to his chin, probably to  conceal the lack of shirt,    lie advanced  toward the elderly Englishman.  "Uncle," said he, humbly,  "is that you?" said the  other, angrily;  'be oJT!    1 don't want to have anything  to do with you."  "Come, uncle," said the other, with a  mixture of menace aud humility, ���'don't  be so hard on a man."  He seized the elder's arm, and-led him  aside. After some moment's conversation  the uncle seemed to soften, and opening  lur-; *alise gave the other some banknote. The nephew devoured the re-  m'uning roll with his eyes, and after a  curt word of thanks disappeared in the  crowd.  i_eo.il and hx�� bride entered the hotel,  and were Shown the best room, in it,  _JJ!heuL_st.ifcn.^^^  procured .the.ii tliat, hoiior. The walls  were covered wi tli ptuper representing  Scenes aroiiyd Naples, Unfortunately,  certain idle travelers had added inus-  tit'ehes to all the female faces, and pipes  to all the male, so the olfec. t was, to a  certain extent, lost. The room was Called "the blue room," the furniture having  once been of that colors  Leon ordered dinner to bo served in  their room. The .difficultyin;, procuring  it excited his wonder^ and on inquiring  he found thkt the officers of* tlie Fifty*-  Secoud Hussars were giving a dinner to  their oinrades of the Sixty-First Clias-  soi-i-s that very evening*, hence the confusion. To liis horror he leanved that  the banquet Was spread in the room im-  niediivtely adjoining the blue -haiivber.  However, tliere was no help for it. The  host swore by all the gods that the officers were the quietest men he ever saw  in his life; that���excepting the chasseurs  ���there were no more lamb-like incl ivi*  duals iu the service than the hussars,  And besides, they always rose from the  table before midnight.  As Leon, son.eAvluvt troubled.in mind,  returned to the blue chamber, lie noticed  that his Ejiglish fellow-traveler occupied  the room on the other side. The door  was open, and through it he saw the  Briton seated before a bottle aiid glass,  and contemplating the ceiling.  "Well, it makes no difference, after all,"  said he to himself; "the Englishman will  soon be tipsy, and the officers,, will be  gone by midnight."  When he entered the blue chamber  Leou looked to bolts and bars. On tlie  Englishman's side there was a double  wall, and a door, which he bolted. On  the officers' side there' was no door, but a  . very thin partition.  The young, couple had a mediocre -din-  more had it not been for the talk of their  military neighbors. The conversation of  those gentlemen had nothing whatever to  do with tactics, strategy, or tlie art of  war iu any way. On the contrary, it  consisted of highly seasoned stories.  And such stories! They were'followed  by roars of laughter, and even our friends  of the blue room found it difficult at  times to preserve their gravity.in quiet.  But the stories grew broader, the  laughter grew louder. From des histoires  decolletees they became toutes lines. Although he was not prudish, Leon thought  the situation 'embarrassing for his bride;  and, sending for the landlord, he requested him to beg the gentlemen not to make  so much noise, as there was - an ������ invalid  lady in the next room. The host entered  the banqueting-room, and his request was  followed by a roar of dissent. Finally  oiie voice prevailed over the others, and  cried:  "What sort of a woman is she?"  "Well, gentlemen," replied the host, "I  don't know for sure, but I think she's a  bride, and that they're on their wedding  tour,"  "Abride!" roared the revelers; "bring  her in ! Fetch 'em both here; we want to  drink to the bride and talk to the  husband."  Our friends in the blue room trembled;  'they'feared an assault would be made.  But the same voice prevailed over the  din, and it was evidently that of a superior, officer. He lectured them on tlieir  lack "of courtesy, and tliere was comparative quiet, for .awhile. But from the  muffled laughter that broke out from  time to time, Leon and his bride had an  idea that they were still the topic.  Suddenly there was a roar from the  left-hand room. "Garsong!" shouted the  Englishman, "gimme another bottle o'  port."  The port was brought, and the Englishman grew quiet. Finally the officers,  having drunk all thoy could cany, and  some of them more, departed, after having joinediii a'parting tori's, to the bride.  *  ** ���   *    **<*      *      *      *   y*  Quiet at last reigned over the hotel.  Thcniglit was clear, the moon shining  brightly. Leon and his bride looked out  from the window, and inhaled the fragrance borne from the flowers in the garden below. Suddenly Leon's gaze fell  upon a mail who was sauntering amid  tho shrubbery. He walked with his head  bent down, a cigar in his mouth, and his  hands thrust into his pockets. As he  turned the moonlight fell upon his face/  It Avas the Englishman's dissolute nephew.  The night wore on. Leon and his bride  had almost forgotten their English neighbor, wheu they heard a strange sound in  his room. It was that of the fall of some  heavy body. Mingled with this there  was a peculiar crashing, grating sound  followed by a stifled cry. Silence. Then  there were two or three muttered oaths,  and silence again.  Tlie young Co.uple ��hu.ddei'ed> What  could it mean? Leon tried; to reassure  _J_iis^treiiibling^cOiiipa.nioii,^but=lie-Avas=iJi;nv=  terrupted by the cautions opening of the  next door. It Wits softly closed again,  and then slow sluti apparently careful  steps were heard in the hall. They were  lost in the distance. They ceased. Again  all was still.  Soon, the young bride was. sleeping  calmly. But not so Leou. Despite himself, the sinister face of the Englishnian's  nephew returned to his recollection,  The.ro was hatred, he thought, in tlie  glance cast iipoii the iijieie by the young  man wheh he left him; aiid then the roil  of bank-notes in the valise. And that  dull, heavy sound but now, like the fall  of a body upon the floor���the ery���tho  curses. Such Was the train of thought  that ran through Leon's mind.  Mechanically he fixed his eyes upon tlio  door whieh .communicated Avith the Englishman's room. Tliere was a little space  between the bottom of the door and the  ���flooring. By the dim light falling from  the partially turued'down gas, he conic.  see something forcing its way under the  door, It seemed, at first, like a knife-  blade, foi' the edge Avas thin, and reflected back the light. It moved slowly to-.  Avard a little blue satin slipper. Avhieh had  been throAvn carelessly near the door,  "What can it be?" thought Leon. "Is  it a knife? No, for it has divided into  two parts. And iioav it divides again���  and yet again. What can it be ? It is  some liquid."  The thing slowly crawled toward the  little blue slipper. It encircled its heel.  It stained its front. It was a liquid. It  Avas a liquid of strange and unmistakable  color���the color of blood.  For a long time Leon lay aud gazed upon the stained slipper and tlie reddish  stream Avliich encircled it. He pictured  to himself the corpse lying in the next  room.; its discovery in the-folloAving niorn-  ,, ,'iich the bolts Avere on his side; the  biood-stained slipper. These things passed through his mind, and a cold swer.t  started out upon him. He attempted to  rise, and hide the slipper; its lie did so, his  wife awoke, and started Avith affright as  she felt his icy hand.  "What is the matter?" she cried.  Leon explained to her the terrible situation in Avliich they Avere placed. Ho  arose, and attempted to romuvc tho telltale stains from the slipper, but it was  useless.  Day Avas breaking. Already the servants Avere moving around the hotel. In  a few hours the crime would be discover-  ed, and the officers of the law would be  upon them.  "Alas!" said Leon, "our only hope is  this: At eight o'clock the train leaves for  Paris. Tf the Englishman's body is not  discovered before that time wc are safe.  AVe Avill take the train, and lose ourselves  in the great city.    There Ave shall be safe."  His Aveeping bride flung herself upon  liis bosom. She felt almost as though she  had committed the deed.  But there yet remained tAvo mortal  hours before tlie train left. At each step  in the' corridor they trembled .with  affright.

Leon's hrh'e wish'-d to  burn the bloody slipper,' but he restrained her, and concealed it on his person.  Seven o'clock sounded. The hotel was  aliA'e AA'ith bustling servants. Leon forced  his wife to take a cup of coffee, although  she declared that her parched throat refused to swallow. 1 hy then descended'  to the Avaiting-room, aud Leon demanded  his bill. The host presented it, and  begged his pardon for the noise of the  previous eA'euing. Leon assured him that  they had passed a A*ery quiet night..  "AVoIl, I'm glad of it," said the host:  "however, your neighbor on the leftdidn't  disturb you much, I'll be bound, lie's  sleeping like a dead man yet*."  Leon shuddered. His wife grasped his  arm convulsively.  "He's an English milord," continued  the hoft. "We've got another Englishman here, too, avIio paid his bill ancl left  this morning. He gaAre me an English  bank-note* I" hope it's good. Look at it.  What do you think?"  He showed Leon a bank-note. On one  corner of it there was a reddish stain.  "It seems to be a good one," said Leon  Avith forced calmness. "Hoav long before  the train goes ?"      ���  "Half an hour yet," replied the host.  At this moment a waiter entered.  "Gimme some brandy-and-soda, quick, for  the English milord," he remarked ; "and  send up a chambermaid with a mop; he  dropped a bottle of port on the floor last  night, and the room is flooded."  To the amazement of both landlord and  waiter, Leon and his Avife sat down aud  laughed until they cried.  "Order us a good breakfast," said ho to  the landlord, "Ave won't'go until the two-  o'cloek train."

Tlie board oi Avorks will recommend  the council to immediately take over the  city scavenging, and the city solicitor  will be instructed to draft such amendments as may be necessary to the bylaw.  Such was the conclusion arrived at yesterday afternoon. The board considered  that at present this work was being inefficiently done, and could be better and  cheaper performed by the city. A discussion ensued as to what outlit would  be needed and where it could be obtained,  and the general opinion seemed to he  that anything that could not be bought  could be constructed here in Nelson. The  members of the board and assistant city  engineer Dill will endeavor to get together all necessary information as to  what is needed, and the best style of  wagon and tanks by the next regular  meeting of the council.  The board also recommended that the  12-foot sidewalk on the south side of  Baker street be extended down from  Kootenay to Railway street.  Another recommendation was that the  water main on Mill street be extended  from Cedar street to the city limits, and  on Carbonate street from Cedar street to  Park street.      '  NELSON.
