 *���"* .�����������.�������-��������  CRYINC OVER JtK SPILT MILK  Alderman Fletcher  Wakes Up.  The question of a new temporary site  for the post office was tlie first important  matter that came up before last evening's  regular meeting of the eity council. A  letter was read from postmaster 3. A.  Gilker, whieh set forth that the post  ofiice must be moved in the near future  and that a central and commodious  building was at this time impossible to  get. Consequently permission was asked  to move the old Merchant's hotel across  tlie street to the empty lot next the Nelson hotel. A letter was also read from  Stephen White objecting to a wooden  building being placed next his hotel.  Blake Wilson, manager of. P.- Burns <fc  Co., said that A. .J. Marks, who owns the  Nelson hotel building, had no objection,  and that they would be willing to move  it again on forty-eight hours' notice from  the council. it appears tliat 1*. Burns <fc  Co. will occupy the building until the new  premises are ready i'or occupation, when  the post ofiice will move in until they can  get suitable quarters.  Alderman Hillyer favored granting the  request, and alderman Fletcher then pro-  posedan aniendmenfcto thelireliinit bylaw  which provided that Avhen a new building is going up, the old building may, with  the permission of the lire wardens, be  temporarily removed to some other part  of the fire limits. This amend men t was  supported by alderman Hillyer and accepted.  Bylaw 25 was then finally passed and  accepted, as was the finance committee's  report recommending the payment of  the following accounts:  Streets pay roll   S 770 50  Sidewalks pay roll     217 50  Water works construction pay roll     J14 00  Sower construction pay roll      4(1 50  Customs duty on scrapers ���      27 (10  C.

Tlie smelter band offered to play for  an hour and ahalf every Saturday evening  if thecouncil would thcm.$ 10ainontli. The  letter was referred to the finance committee.  .Mrs. Clarke asked leave to erect a tent  on the foundation next her hotel, where  beds would he placed for accommodation  of visitors during the celebration. The  required permission was granted.  T. C. Collins wrote offering to pay a  license of $10 per month per slot machine  if he were allowed to keep them running.  The council considered that tliey could  not legally accept the offer, but on the  motion of alderman .Fletcher and Hillyer,  it was decided that the slot machines  will not be allowed in town after July  1th. This may be taken as tacitly allowing them to run to that date.  The following tenders for the supply  of sewer pipe were opened and referred  to the board of works:  From the B. C. Pottery Company,  Limited, of Victoria, 7200 feet of 8-inch  pipe, $17S2; 500 feet, of 9-inch pipe at 35  cents, $175; 1300 feet of 12-inch pipe at,  52 cents, $070; 260 pieces of S-inch junctions, $200; 12 pieces of 9-inch junctions,  $15.12; and 45 pieces of 12-inch junctions  at $1.71, $76.95.

Also 15 lengths of 12-inch junctions at $2.27, 5 lengths of 9-inch at $1.39  and 260 lengths of S-inch at $1.11  After aldermen Fletcher, Kirkpatrick,  Hillyer, and McKillop had been appointed,  a committee to make arrangements for  the entertainment of official guests at the  Dominion Day celebration, the council  adjourned at the call of the mayor.

"We start off on the first of June with a.  deficit of $20,000 "he exclaimed. Then,.

I don't sge how tlie  pipe Ave have bought is to he laid unless  it is paid otit of the general revenue."  The mayor said that nearly all the  AVitteovorks had been laid.  Aidei'Hiah Fletcher did not think, the  extra three mills proposed by the finance  committee would be of much good, but  thought that the Avhole thing should be  further looked into and considered, and  tliat in the meantime the fixing of the  rate should be postponed. This Avas  agreed to and the committee reported  progress.  A letter Avas read from the attorney  general about the Hamilton PoAvder Company's magazine; He thought that the  council should take steps to enforce the  laAV, and that tliere Avas no excuse for  tlieir not having done so. The police  commissioners had formerly instructed  the chief of police to lay aujnformation,  but action in the matter had been deferred. Ou the motion of aldermen  Fletcher and Kirkpatrick the city solicitor Avas instructed to take immediate  action.  City scavenger G.

The sittings of the county court opened  yesterday with an all day case, Lavin vs.  the Kootenay Air Supply Company. The  action avus for $175.90 for lumber delivered.      The   liability   Avas   denied,   and  there was also a  counter claim for $121  for damages, and a claim for $38, the difference between 75,000  staves 3} inches  and 3 inches in size.'    The contract  was  originally made in, December, 1897, and  the  staves had to  be  planed   to  three  inches.    To do this the plaintiff claimed  that they had to be saAvn 3]  inches, and  Charles Hillyer, P. A. Poison and J. A.  DeAvar testified that this Avas so.    It Avas  also claimed that Avhen the original contract was made the defendant company  agreed to pay for it in the rough.    It also  appeared that the p]aiiitittYx>considering  that he Avas not being paid sufficiently on  account, eA-entually refused to deliver any  more staA'es till he aviis paid up.    Fran'k  Lavin,  the plaintiff, and C. H.  Taylor,  manager of the defendant company and  D.   Lynch,   the foreman, also  gave eA*i-  dence. . ��  His honor, Judge Forin, summed up  strongly in faA'or of the plaintiff, stating  that the original contract had been  broken by the defendants, and that under  the circumstances the plaintiff was justified iii delaying delivery until he Avas  paid.' The jury, avIio consisted of W. Wilson, foreman, E. J. Curran, II. Hurry, li.  Machiu and David BoOth, gaA*e a A'erdict  for the plaintiff for the full amount  claimed, after a feAA** minutes deliberation.  S. S. Taylor, Q. C, appeared for the plaintiff, and R. M. Macdonald and C. W.  Wragge for the defendants.  Miners Get Their Wages.

THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  up,e^Q^<|hy*w'T^^p^!-  .Ayaslsliable idf 'tlie Yahlouiits!  l_m  clamed -_ai-d  Adjusting Freight Hates.  The Committee of the board of trade  ire still  at Avork with assistant general  freight agent Peters of the Canadian Pacific over the freight rate to and from Nelson.   Some of the discriminations arc glar-  ingand very unjust. For instance, candies,  made in St. Louis, are shipped to Vancouver in carload lots and reshipped from  tliere to Fernie in less than carload lots  for 34 cents a hundred less than the carload rate from St. Louis to Nelson plus  the  distributing    rate   from   Nelson to  Fernie.      In other Avords, the   railways  are hauling goods to a point 100, miles  Avest   of   Nelson,    then    hauling    them,  back fco a point 250 miles east of Nelson  for 34 cents a hundred  less than to Nelson, thence to the point 250 .miles east.  There are still more glaring cases of discrimination  in favor of Vancouver.    If  Nelson is to bea AA'holesale point, the men  avIio are in that business must not rest  until these discriminations are wiped out.  On equal terms, Nelson can hold her oavu  Avith the coast cities, but it cannot be  done Avhen the coast has the best of it  from 10 to 45 cents a hundred on many  lines of staple commodities.    Our  wholesale merchants maintain that the carload  rate to Nelson and the distributing rate  from Nelsoii to any point 150 miles north,  east and a vest, should  not be more than  the carload rate to A^ancouA'er and the  distributing rate from there ,to common  points  in  Kootenay.    They  cannot   see  Avhy the railroads should haul goods 500  miles on an average for nothing, as they  are doing uoav.  SILVERTON.  Ore is coming doAvn from the, Noonday  for shipment. The present shipment Avill  be forty tons.  One of the. principal stockholders of  the Vancouver company is in town. It is  expected that , a definite plan will be  adopted as to Avhether the mine Avill resume Avorking or not.  ���Y-V OnY; ^a^Vi'day ... af fcernooir ,ita.���ufoqtb,i.ir  "Siiat dli'itvas" pla\fed"J,*ie  7sea|i-City\chil^��ui;dr *'��� ���---������-���������-���'-��� ���*������  '$dWefi-]mtles"i  :kkcli4eo^^i��g__, .,  i^fcih^t^^  co_ lteJitio^r^'as/tJlis'^ "t>"y thp decision" tit  fclie ^i]%ht" 9PiipSpe#sY*ase;?i ''and' 'aS'VJtiie  '! iff ns" "Aiei>e rgpsJiH^d^a'gjaiusfc'tlie-'properi^".  tlie' eoinpauysdbeicted" tg "pity nyp'. ��� ^alld h��f  '&j Witsofl relareS^h&e^^^ fche  action aiid ^Vhealle^ & Mai-tlii  of lvaslo  tliedefendViifccohipahy.

Lo.voox, June 19.���"-In spite of the abnormal secrecy in writing connected with  the American cup challenger, Shamrock,,  a representative of the Associated Press  has been able to glean a feAV facts about  the boat interesting alike to yachtsmen  and the general public. The original estimate of the cost of the A'essel has nearly  doubled, but Sir Thomas Lipton Avill not  have to foot the whole of the bilk as the  ThoiMieycroffcs, who are keenly interested,  hoping the Shamrock's success Avill add  laurels to tlie firm's reputation, are bearing a portion of the expense. Those aa'Iio  are on the inside declare-the'yacht's construction is absolutely unique and that the  amount of metal employed will be a surprise to the yachting Avorld when it is di-.  A'ulged.  In color and texture the alloy has the  appearance of aluminum, of Avhieh, indeed, it has a very large percentage. It  possesses extraordinary resistance aud  lightness, and has been used eA-erywhere  Avhere wood Ava-s not considered absolutely essential. Great difficulty has been  encountered in moulding the plates. Although the sheathing tends to giA'e her  a heaA-y appearance, the yacht has in  reality been built for light Aveather; and  it is considered that her chances of success Avill be reduced should the Aveather  be Arery heavy during the cup races.  Her deck and over-deck arrangements,  as regards sails, etc., are considered original and peculiarly effective. Liglit larch-"  Avood berths are being fitted for the use  use of tlie creAv in crossing the-- Atlantic.  The contracts of the creAv Inwe been  signed for sixmonths certain on racing  pay, and substantial bonuses haA'e been  promised in case of A-ictory.

GOOD STRIKrON^THE MABOU  May Be Another Enterprise.  New Di-XVKH, June  19.���By   far  the  most important strike that has been made  on Ten-Mile creek since the discoA'ery of  the Enterprise is that just uncovered on  the Empress Fraction and Mabou claims  lying- just above and adjoining the Enterprise.    The discoA'ery was to a certain  extent accidental and was made by one  of  the  owners of the Mabou, avIio was  picking on the edge of a  rock bluff exposed through  the suoav.    Cutting down  iu the snow and  wash the  rich float was  found, and a little more work soon uncovered  the  A'ein.    This has since  been  traced  down to  the   Enterprise   group  Eight open cuts have been made, and in-  each case the vein stands  exposed.    So  far as  traced the A'ein cuts right through  the Empress Fraction and three parts of ,  the   Mabou.   The   lead, -Avherever   cut, ���  shows an even Avidth of eighteen inches.  The  A'ein  matter is most   encouraging,  there being fully eight inches of carbonates and galena, Avhile the quarte carries  the black zinc and other characteristics so  pronounced iu the Enterprise ore.  The Mabou owners haA*e a tunnel in SO  feeton Avhat Avas supposed to be the Enterprise vein, but Avhieh iioav appears to  be a companion ledge. These Avorkings  are. not .more than fifty feet A\*est of the  recent discoA'ery, and in the breast of the 7,  tunnel is a Avell-mineralized A'ein, AA'ith  four inches of clean ore. The Mabou  owners are now facing up for a tunnel to  be driA'en on the recent discovery.  A deluge of surface water has caused a  temporary suspension of Avork, on the  Ohio, situated just aboA'e the Mabou,  upou Avhicli a shaft Avas being sunk into  the big A'ein. In the foot of the shaft  the A'ein matter is mixed throughout  with ore, while on the hanging Avail are V  eighteen inches of fine looking galena.  As soon as the suoav goes off Avork on  fcliis property Avill be resumed, as the  prospect of catching the Enterprise A'ein  from the Mabou ground is practically  assured.". .-Y--  Opposite the Enterprise, on the north  side of Ten-mile, the assessment AvOrk oh  the Black Cloud has exposed a splendid  ledge tAvo feet in Avidth, Avith from three  to eight inches of galeuii and zinc. This  ore gives high A'alues. The Black Cloud  is ' the fourth relocation* of the. same Y  ground, P. W. Ellis of'Toronto being one Y  of the present owners.

He eAren goes further,  nnd says that it will be his duty to point  this out in his official capacity to European capitalists. Major Haider may  have Avonderful influence Avith European  capitalists, but Ave doubt it. Capital is  ueA-er scared from a country because of  the price of labor. .What capital AA'ants is  reliable labor, and reliable labor can only  be had in British Columbia by the payment of good AA'ages. If the mines of  British Columbia are so poor that they  can only be Avorked profitably by the employment of cheap Asiatic and semi-  civilized European labor, then they had  better remain uiiAVorked for all time.  _.ot, withstanding all the tulk ahuul,  hard times resulting from the labor  troubles, we will venture to say tliat it'  you stroll down the sunny side of  Baker street about 2 p. in., you will  hear more complaints about the  weather than any other subject.

'Tin very niuch'ili'tud I cannot find a  place behind our counters for you," said  the ttppoiiitment clerk of tlie big department store, with a negative shake of the  head, Avhicli implied all manner of .sorrowful thiugs. The applicant, a young  girl of remarkable beauty, turned away  with a sigh, and a shower of tears seemed  imminent.  "Oh, dear!" she faltered. "I understood you needed at least teii saleswomen, audi certainly could furnish you  the best of references as to my ability to  sell. This is the seventh place I haA'e  .applied for this morning. I've no luck  at all."  "Why, 1 thought you said you were  hard pressed for'coinpetent salesAvomen!"  remonstrated the reporter as the beautiful, young Avoman vanished.  "Well, so I  did," retorted the clerk.  "Then -why did you not give that one a  chance?    Surely her beauty������"  "Her beauty V" iiiterriij-ted the clerk.  ���'That's the sole reason Avhy I refused  her, and it is also, perhaps, tlie sole reason  why she did not obtain any of the.six  other places she sought. This is the era  ; ofthe plain girl in business, and the girl'  whose beauty is so insistent that none  ..'���may deny it has to step aside for her sisters who are less bountifully endowed  witliY'Charms'yof face -.JMicl'i ���Hgure_:-;-''7'.:Yoir  _?^ili^^^  ,''"WtrdepW^  >.-_ meh_ioi_'sscq. f_siot jiietailrestabhshiii^iitsmE  /.J^^jvsgpiftf 4^,1|P^^l_iv* _%i;��4fs%iirv  #i46i.'sio_i^^  ~t>V.

Sometimes to accomplish their purpose malicious clerks will go to great lengths, although taking care not to expose themselves. Such conduct, of course, is death  to that discipline and thorough organization of forces AA'hich is necessary to the  success of large enterprises, so it has become absolutely impracticable for department stores to .employ'beauties.".  Klodyke Gold and Dawson Officials.  John McRae of Martintown, Glengarry  county, Ontario, is in receipt of a letter  from colonel Donald McGregor of Dawson, iu which he says there has been considerable prospecting done since the early  part of last summer, but, notwi-hstand-  ing newspaper reports to the contrary,  there has been nothing proved to pay so  far, outside of those creeks in the vicinity  of Dawson, namely, Bonanza, Eldorado,  Hunker,���Dominion, Sulphur and Gold Run  and some of their tributaries.  ���Eldorado is the richest, but after all  that has been said and Avritten about it,  I cannot but think that three or four  miles iu length of Williams creek, Cariboo, contained as much gold as a proportionate .length.of Eldorado. I believe the  richest patch of all was a portion of a  claim, eighty-six feet in length, ou Bonanza creek, a few hundred yards beloAV  -.he month of Eldorado. It AA'as owned by  a man named Richard LoAAre. An old acquaintance of mine worked the claim for  Lowe. He began at the loAver end and  took an open cut through to the head  line, about twenty feet wide, and out of  that cut is said , to haA'e taken $300,000.  It does not seem as if that gold was deposited there in the usual manner, there  being no traces of wash, but black muck  down to bedrock in places, and the gold  almost lying in. bunches in that bedrock.  ;   As regards   the  camp,  it AArould  be a  talk. They are forgetful ofthe fact that  Avhat may be rare sport at their end of  the line may cause serious embarrassment,or Avorse to the young man at the  other end. Even if the young man enjoys it, his employer does not. Sending  unnecessary or even fancied necessary  notes to young men at their offices during  business hours is anoth-r favorite pasture  of girls. �� Sometimes the fun is carried  further by meeting a young man at his  luncheon hour, or by even calling at his  office. Again, eA'en a more dangerous element is introduced by girls urging young  men to leave their offices before closing  hours to escort them to some place of  amusement, some game, or to a train.  The danger in these acts is not in themselves, but in the injurious distractions  which they mean. Business hours,  though doubtless they seem inexplicably  long to girls, are, in reality, all too short  for the accomplishment of things necessary to a young man's success.; Hence  every moment when he is at business  should be precious to him, and it is  mightily precious to the right sort of a  young man. His mind should be focused  on the problems before him, which mean  either his success or his failure.'  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  HUjYlE.  Collon,   Wellesley,  Hi_Iop, Sun    t'ran-  G.

She hiay"be. a paragon of  modesty* A^it'tue and ihnoceiice, but still  the fact remains that she is a beauty, has  probably been told so often and is not liable to forget it* and that, in all likelihood, she will, render conspicuous the  salient features of her prettiuess rather  than keep them undercover to the promotion of her employer's interests.  "Ai-other reason for this opposition to  the very beautiful saleswoman is that  she is rarely cleA'ei' at making sales, being  too much absorbed in her personal affairs, AA'liereas the plain girl, AArho must  rely on her.mental abilities to aa^ii the  battle of life, 'cultivates her persuasive  faculties and becomes an expert iu the  manipulation of a convincing tongue.
