 1 ��*5*,  TROUBLE IS EXPECTED TODAY  Boers May Start the Ball.  London,   September    20.���Despite  all  outward show of calm; Croat Britain is in  practically the same condition as Avas the  United States  a  few  Aveeks  before   the  opening of AViir* wibll Spain. Beneath the  criisfc of diplomatic reserve the military  officials are A\orking night and day preparing for  the   beginning  of   hostilities  Avhether it comes or not.    England is not  to be caught napping any more than the  Transvaal.    AVhilc lord Salisbury is quite  at home in .Hatfield House, i\Ir. Chamberlain  is  buried   in   Avork  at  the  colonial  ollice, and forces at theltoyal arsensa Is and  dockyards are straining   every   nerve   to  equip and transport troops to  the Cape.  It may be set down for certain that Great  Britain  Avill   do   nothing''to. precipitate  matters,  anil    the  colonial   ollico  is   far  from admitting that the ease is hopeless.  The report that Croat  Britain has demanded the dismantlement of  the   forts  at  Johannesburg,   together Avith   a.   material reduction in the armament  of tho  burghers the colonial ollice today Avould  neither confirm nor deny,   although  it is  much doubted.    Meanwhile  the marquis  of   Lansdownc, ���secretary   of   state   for  Avar,  avIio   returned   this  morning  from  Dublin, has   held   long  conferences with  general lord Garnet Wolseley, field marshal, and general sir EArelyn Wood, adjutant-general to the forces, ;viui the activity  at  headquarters  is   reflected   in the  contract,  supply  and   transport departments. "'���  The departure of the British transport  .Tehinga for the Mcditarranoan today  Avith 1100 troops Avas witnessed by a  large and enthusiastic crowd. At Wool-  Avich activity increases daily, and especially in the ordinance department,  Avhere maxim guns, Lyddite shells, ba"-  Ioon equipments, gas reservoirs, Avagons  for lime light apparatus, Avater carts,  ambulances, army-wagons and other  pharaphcrnaiia of modern AA'arfare are  being hurried forward.  .While rumors of the reassembling of  parliament are current the fact is recalled  thufc in the Afghan Avar in 1S79 England  declared war first and then assembled  parliament. This cA'cning the marquis  of Lansdowne issued strict orders to the  stall'of the Avar ollice warning all subordinates to refrain from giving the press  any information Avithout the authority  of their superiors, and calling attention  to previous breaches of duty in this respect, Avhich, the order says,-,"will no  - longer be tolerated."  Advices from Capetown Lhis .evening  are to the effect" that tho Uitlanders declare that the Traus\.ial government will  not recede further, and that if the* im-  ' perial government does not recede from  its present position Avar is inevitable.  The South African Noavk .supports the  contention of the TransA.val that the convention of 1SS4 abolished the suzerainty.  According to other advices the burghers  are rapidly going into laager, Avhile the  exodus from Johannesburg yesterday exceeded 10,000 persons-. The stock exchange at Johannesburg has resolved to  close the moment martial law is proclaimed, but all current contracts will be  carried Out until the suspending of all  business. In the meantime tlie merchants are erecting barricades in front of  their shop windows.  At Pretoria the interest seems to be  centered in tho meeting of the Orange  Free State volksraad tomorrow (Thursday) which it is hoped may somehow  suggest a modus vivondi that Avould save  the situation. On tho other hand, advices  from Bloomfontain announce the armral  there of a large number of members of  ���tho-riiad-radding���that��� the-result-of_t7>~  morrow's sitting is already agreed upon,  as the Orange Free State Avill throAv in  its lot Avith the Transvaal, all the Free  State burghers being fully armed and  ready to start at a moment's irotice.  Right Hon. sir William Vernon JTar-  court, Liberal member of parliament for  West Monmouthshire, and former leader  of the Liberal opposition in the house of  commons, in the course of an address to  Ids constituents this evening in Trod gar,  said he could not regard the persistent  attempts of the Avar press to aggravate  the Transvaal, Avithout indignation and  reprobation. Ho said: "Great Britain  cannot claim general suzerainty in the  Transvaal when she has only partial  suzerainty, and Kruger cannot claim for  the Transvaal the position of an international sovereign state. Both sides,  therefore, have made allegations which  cannot be maintained." Sir William declared that there AA'as no casus belli, and  expressed the .hope tliat a shameful  easbastrophe might be averted.  The Capetown correspondent of the  Daily Mail says president Kruger has  cabled a strong personal appeal to the  queen, beseeching her to intervene to  prevent bloodshed. The cable is about a  column in length aud is intended to  "scarcifiy" the consciences of unco guid  when published.  Sir Alfred Milner has wired a courteous  message to president Steyn, assuring him  that the norbhAVard march of they British  troops is not meant as a menace to the  Orange Free State, and requesting to be  informed as to the hitter's attitude. Reliable information has'been received that  a large command of Free State burghers  has been concentrated near Boshof on  the Kimberley border. Two hundred  burghers Avere despatched to -that point  froiir Bloemfontein during the past'week.  If the Free State joins the Transvaal" the'  %,  THURSDAY MOJfcNING, SEPTEMBER 21, 1809.  PUBLISHED AT  NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  first battle Avill probably be fought at  Boshof. Tho Cape cabinet has determined to prolong the session of the  assembly indefinitely, so that it may bo  sitting Avhen hostilities begin.  A. special dispatch from Rome says  that tlie Italian government in reply to  prosidonb.Krugor's request for inleiwcn-  tion, has advised him to yield.  Tho Johannesburg correspondent of the  Morning Post says the Boer preparations  arc as complete as tho government can  hope to make them. It is* believed that  martial law will be proclaimed on Thurs-  jlay, if no reply is received from England  by that time.. It is understood that the  despatching of'British troops to .South  Africa, will be regarded as a casus belli.  The officers are urging the government to  begin hostilities forthwith. It is felt  that the Orange Free State can best be  forced to action by a successful military  demo'nstration on the part of the  Transvaal. "-.'���''  Oapktoavn, September 20.���Sir Alfred  Milner's dispatch to president Steyh informs him that the British and Transvaal go\'ornment are still in hopes of .a  friendly .settlement. .Should this hope be  disappointed sir Alfred says he looks to  the Orange Free State to preserve strict  neutrality, and to prevent military intervention by any of its citizens.  A  FORMER ACTION RESCINDED  By the Silverton Miners.  About a month ago the miners' union  ab Silverton passed a resolution declaring  that members of the union should nob do  work by contract, and the men employed  ab the Wakefield and the Bosun quit.  Night before last the union held a meeting and reconsidered this action', and  now the men Avill be free to accept contract work any where on Slocan lake. It  is said this action is irr the nature of a  compromise.  The Rebs Are Winning.  Washington, September 20.���The officials here aro expecting decisive results  in the Venezuelan conflict at any moment.  Porto Ca hollo, which reports state avjis,  "taken by 1000 insurgents and then vacated, is only three hours from Vaneia,  ono of the'principal cities, and the latter  is only a few hours from Caracas, the*  capital. General Cettro, the rebel leader,  apparently has do\-eloped unexpected  forces, as the operations of tho last feAv  days have shown that ho has a large and  well disciplined army. Tho British-Venezuelan arbitration decision which is  likely to bo announced at Paris within  the noxt ten days Avill not bo affected by  any political change Avhich may occur in  Venezuela.  He Withdraws the Confession.  "BiiLGitADR, September 20.���The tri.-il of  KirezCA'ic, the Bosnian avIio attempted to  assassinate former king Milan of Servia,  last July, and of the influential radical  loaders charged Avith being accomplices  in tho attack, developed boday a sen-  sabional incident. Standing before the  bible and crucifix, Knezevie formally  Avithdrow all accusations of complicity,  lie said: "I charged the prisoners with  complicity in order to save myself. 1  -SAvoar-noAv-that-thoso-men are-absolutely-  innocent. I fired on Milan out of personal  revenge, because I thought he was tlie  cause of my failing to Jind employment.  1 have rrOAV freed my soul. It is for you  judges bo decide.   Caught a Hard Luck Story,  Victoria, September 20.���Tho first of  the sealing fleet to return from Behring  sea came in today, being the schooner  Mary Taylor. She had hard luck, taking  only fifty-four skins, and bringing back  but fourteen of the twenty-four men  taken from here. Three were lost in the  spring season, as already reported, and  the other six deserted iu the north to  make for the gold diggings. Tho Mary  Taylor reports that the sealers as a whole  appear to be doing well, several large  catches being recorded for tho yeb incomplete season.   Yellow Fever in the South.  K-I5Y West,. Florida, September 20.���  During the past twenty-four hours thirty-  four   new   cases of   yelloAV fever Avere  reported but no deaths.  New Onr.BANs, September 20.��� Tavo  neAV eases of yellow fever Avere reported  here today. Reports at Mississippi City  are most discouraging and a general  spread of the disease is feared there*.  A N*ew Range of Mountains.  ; St. Petersburg, September 20.���The  Russian Abyssinian expedition has discovered a new range of mountains betAveen 8.30 and 6 degrees north latitude,  and 30..30 longitude. By permission of the  czar the mountains liiwe been named  Nicholas II. range.  The Czar Leaves Eenmark.

Ib   is   an   open secret   that   the   late  Turner party and  its  candidates  spent  close on to $10,000 in Kootenay  in subsidizing newspapers during  the  campaign  that ended so disastrously in  June, 1808.  The "graft" Avas so good that an attempt  is now being made to make history repeat  itself, as it were.    It is a well-known fact  that the organ of the Mine Managers' Association in Nelson Avould like to have its  inaomc      increased,     but     the    income  cannot bo expected from legitimate business.    The subsidy uoav paid by tho Mine  Managers! Association is so small, being  only $50 a month, that ib is of little benefit.    The mine manager's have  been approached to increase the subsidy.     They  are said to be ���willing'  to  spend  $1000 a  month, from now oh'till  the legislature  meets,   irr   a   lasb   elt'orb   to secure the  repeal       of       the       eight-hour      law.  They    bolioA-e     that    .if    they     could  show      the     government     that       the  Avorking 'miners do not Avant the IaAv for  bheir benefit that the legislature Avould  repeal it.    How to reach  the miners  so  that they could be educated rrp to signing  repealing petitions  is Avhat  is  Avorryiiig  the men who have evolved the scheme*.  One faction believes that the men can bo  educated through the press only; but the  other faction,'while Avilling to concede  the power of the  press,  is .unwilling  to  attempt it through such papers as the NeN  son organ. They .are known bo be willing bo  care  for   the New   Denver   Ledge,  the  Sandon Mining Review, and  the Kaslo  Kootenaian, believing  that these papers  could help the cause, provided they AArere  approached by the right people. Johnnie  Harris corrld approach the Sandon paper  without fear of a rebuff.     George Alexander could  swing the Kootenaian into  line,    and    W.    H.     Sandiford    might  approach the "Mark TAvairr" of the Slocan     Avithout     fear    of     having     the  bull* dog    turned   loose   on   him.    The  organ at Nelson is for sale to tho highest  bidder.    The  trouble is,  however,  that  the Nelson organ Avill  nob sell -its ucavs  columns   for   advertising purposes.     It  Avants���ibs circulation increased���orr  Saturdays.    It Avould like bo sell 5000 copies^  of its Saturday's "real estate" edition to  the Nelson  District Mine "Owners' Association for the modest sum of .$250,'or at  the  rate  of live   cents  for   each  copy.  This Avould absorb the whole of the" $1000  a month, but tlremoney Avould be put to  good  use, of course, in  paying  for the  four Mergenthalor machines that are expected to arrive along about New Year's  Day,  and tiro other three  papers could  take their pay in promises.    Was ever so  absurd a scheme eA'olved J*   One thousand  dollars'] a month to  be  raised  aud expended in educating men to reject something that they have secured  through  legislation Avhich hundreds bf thousands  of workers  have  been trying  years  to  secure through agitation.  TRADE AND COMMERCE.  THE TOWNS ON KOOTENAY LAKE  And Adjacent Mines.  The Avoll-known Blue Bell  mine, across  Kootenay lake from  Ainswortli, may be  reopened.    Mr. Hicks, avIio avjis  superintendent  ot   the  property  Avhen   ib  Avas  Avorked  by bhe Ilondryx  outfit, has returned, it is said, in the   interest  of the  Hall Mines people.  Another outfit, whose  managing man Ha-os at Kaslo, is also said  to   be    negotiating   Avith    a    view    of  acquiring the property.    Tho two outfits  are said to be Avorking jointly, and JiaA-c  six or seA'cn men pumping out the shaft  and cleaning up the workings. The people  at Pilot Bay hope that some deal Avill be  made so that the  smelter AviII start up.  They claim that there is ore enough  in  sight in  tho  properties  that are  being  opened up on Crawford creek to keep the  smelter running, to say nothing of the  Blue Bell ore.     On  Crawford  creek  the  properties    ��� most       talked       of     are  the      Silver      Hill,      Hidden       .Secret,  Legal     Tender,     and     the    'Richelieu,  on all of which men. are Avorking.   That  there is considerable activity is evidenced  by the fact that the SaAvyer pack train  of forty animals has had all it  corrld  do.'  A good deal of the packing has been over  to the St. Marys, Avhere there arc a number of claims being opened.up by  people  living   at   Pilot   Bay.     The     Sayward  sawmill'   employs     about     tAvenby-five  men at Pilot Bay, and there are at least  seventy-Jive men employed as mine Avork-  crs in the neighborhood.  At Ainswortli things are fairly booming, in that times are better, than at.anytime since the summer of 1891. On the  Number One 20 men are at work; the  Star has S or 10 ; the Little Phil 35 to 40;  at the concentrator and the Highlander  and at the Stevenson bunrrel .30 to 35;  Buckeye 8 ; Illinois 5 or- 0, and the Tariff  2 or .3. The. Little Phil is taking "out  from 40 to 50 tons of ore daily,  arrd the Tariff will resume shipping  as soon as it is transferred to its new  owners. The Highland, also, is expected  to be transferred to uoav OAvners in a  short' time, the r consideration'.being, a  pretty big figure���someday jis high as  $120,000. ,- Owing to a delay-in the ship-'  merit of-pipe, bhe Taylor, compressed- air  plant on Coffee cveck is nob .'yet in a position to supply power to the mines in the  camp.  Back of Argenta, at the head of Kootenay lake, Jonh McKane of Rossland is  managing a property that has a number of  men employed. The group is named the  Lavina. Adjoining is the Lost Mountain  group", owned by tho Financial Trust cfc  Mining Company, and on Avhich Avork "is  to be started at once.  The Kaslo <fc .Slocan i*aihvay people  havo bobween 200 and 300 men at Avork  betAveen Argenta and Duncan City, and  the Canadian Pacific have about twice as  many on the Lardo extension.  RAILWAY   AND    STEAMBOAT   NOTES.  Aside from the business which is done  Avith Kootenay lake points the Avholesale  merchants of Nelson send out oatoi* the  Canadian Pacific six cUrs of merchandise  "eacirday^ These mixed shipments average ton tons to the car, so that there are  sixty tons of merchandise being distributed from Nelson each day. Two cars  go over the Ci-oav's Nest branch, ono to  the Slocan, one car to Boundary and tAvo  to Rossland and Columbia river points.  The Neelands Shoe Emporium yesterday received a consignment of 47 cases  of shoes aud rubber goods from Montreal, a portion of which is credited with  having come across the continent in  eight days.  Xelson merchants are doing a nice little trade Avith the Boundary district already. A mixed car of merchandise AA'as  shipped yesterday and a second one Avas  loaded ready for shipment this  morning.  P. Burns <fc Company received two cars  of hogs over the Canadian Pacific yesterday from Toronto, and the Parsons Produce Company shipped 50 cases of eggs  to Greenwood.  The Hall Mines, Limited, shipped a  car of lead bullion on the steamer Moyie  last evening. The bullion Avill go to the  refinery at NeAvark, Ncav Jersey.  Alderman Charles Hillyer, president of  the Nelson: -Saw & Planing Mills, left  for Bonner"'s Ferry yesterday,, where he  goes to purchase a boom of logs from  Callihan <fe Bogle. ,  Baseball Games Yesterday.

Granted Leave to Go to Chicago.  .City* of Mexico, Septeniber 20.���The  senate and chamber of deputies in joint  session today,; by a unanimous, vote,  granted to president';. Diaz tAvonty-One*  'days;leave of absence to visit Chicago.  The groAving importance of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company to Nelson  as a wage distributing concern is- being  made manifest every day. Nelson as a  commercial center is still in its infancy,  yet the Canadian Pacific pays out in  "wagcs_each���uioiTllrTo-its- local-raihvay  and steamboat employees something over  $12,000. The company's disbursements  in Nelson for supplies will easily equal  this amount, so that Avhen the ghost  Avalks and the monthly accounts are paid  there are close upon .$25,000 put in circulation each month.  IL II. Reeves, who has boon w.harf  clerk for thoCanadian Pacific for some time  past, loft yesterday for Hobson, Avherehe  Avill fill a clerkship. S. K. Chapman Avill  go on as Avharf clerk.  The strike of the Canadian Pacific  freight handlers at Owen Sound has been  patched \\p for the present. The strikers  have gone back to work and if matters  are not adjusted to their satisfaction  within the next fifteen days they aviII go  out again.        The Men to be Comfortably Housed.  Supei'inteudeiit lianrmelmeyor of the  Emily Edith mine, near Silverton, Avas in  Nelson yesterday. His company has  commenced bhe erection of line quarter's  for bhe mine employees. The largest  building will be'used for a "bunk-house."  Ib will be fibbed up Avibh bathrooms, drying-rooms, smoking and card rooms,  reading and sibbing rooms, and eArery bed  (and there will be accommodations for  seventy men) Avill be furnished- Avitli  Avoven-Avire -mattresses. Tlie mess-house  will be equally well fitted up, and in addition to the kitchen and dining-room  Avill have sleeping rooms for- tire cook and  his assistants. The superintendent's and  the assay offices Avill occupy a, separate  building. The fourth building will- be  used as a private residence for the superintendent, and his family.  Mine Owners Might Do Likewise.  Last AA-eek the thirteenth Jinnualineet-  ing   of   the . Typobheba*   of  bhe .United  States and Canada met ab Hartford, Connecticut.    The annual 'add res.-,   read-by  the president, was an interesting document and dealt Avith many questions of  importance, to the printing trade.    For  the first time iu its history tho Typothe-  t;e in  1898  recognized  the International  Trades Unions as a body, and as a result  of a conference between representatives  of the Typothobie and those of the Typographical  and  Printing  Pressmen's and  Assistants' Unions, an agreement regarding shorter working hours  Avas  reached  that has had an  important influence on  bhe trade throughout  the United States.  This conference resulted in reducing the  number of AA'orkhyy hours from sixty to  fifty-seven per week, and beginning with  November of this year to, fifty-four.    The  result of this action is shown in. reports  presented to the conA'ontion to have been  on the Avhole satisfactory, although the  employers Irju-c scarcely as yet been able  to increase tlieir rates bo any appreciable  extent.    The president recommends that  oAving to tho  frequency of disputes between tho Avorkmen and to sbrikes and  lockouts, further conferences might Avibh  advantage be held Avibh bhe  unions  on  obher disputed-' points.    The problem of  combination    for   the    maintenance   of  prices was also mentioned.    In Baltimore  and St. Paul combination has been tried,  and  upon   the  success  of  the  plans  in  these cities Avill depend whether, or not  the principle AA'ill be extended.  DREYFUS ON THE ROAD TO N|CE  Getting Out of France.  London, September-20.^-The Paris correspondent of the Daily Telegraph says  that Dreyfus is so ill bhat ho can live  only a few-months.

Nf.av    Denvkr,   September   20.���Thb  Hartney   group   of   clailns,    oir   Silver  mountain jusb back ofthe toAvn, has this  week-been bonded to A. II. Bluemenaucr  of Spokane. The bond is for nine months  and calls for the p:vynient of $30,000 jit  stated intervals.    One  month's  working  option is giA-en before the first payment  falls due, Avhich is for 5 per cent.     There  are six claims in tho group, consisting of  tho Hartney, August   Flower.

This last  purchase  has  greatly  revived  things in this A'ieinity, and ji fair payroll  is .assured bhe town for the winter.  A crown grant is-to be issued to the  Bosun group of three claims.  Assays have been made lately upon the  ore being ruined on the Mollie Hughes  group, iind it giAres the striking valuer of  $28.45 gold ; 1182.7 oz. silver, and 4.8 per  cent copper. Ib is n dry ore, running  with quart/.,-.and- showing grey copper  and ruitive silver; About a" carload of  this has been taken out .and will be shipped.

The  stianger, in loading these demands* would  imagine that the piovince has nogleoted'  to perform a duty to tho people,  when as a matter of fact no ju-ovinco in  the Dominion of Canada spends as much  on roads and trails, in proportion  to Mis total roA'cnue, as docs Uritish  Columbia. People clamor for wagon  roads Ayhcre- trails would suffice,  and for trails Avere tree blazes-are till  .that are needed. Men .who- htive staked  mineral claims in out-of-thc-Avay places  demand wagon* roads that Avould cost  thousands of dollars before they have  even poi-forriictl the annual assessments  tliat arc required by law: they proclaim  that a hardship has been worked on them  when the* government refuses to spend  thousands of dollars in return for the  feAv dollars they have paid the province  for licenses and recording fees. And  Avhen tho government has been weak  enough to listen to their demands, Iioav  many such i-oads and trails have been actually used?

Bonner's Kerry Herald.  Bonner's Ferry was honored this week  with ft visit from it pioneer wagon road  builder ofthe Rockies in tho person of  captain Mullan, of.Mnllan. road fame.  Tlie captain is now past the ago of three  score and ten and his hair is as white <-is  the snow, but his step is yet elastic and  his eye as bright its when lie fought hostile savages find explored these then unknown regions half a century ago.  Late in the 50's captain Mtdlan was  st.-ttioned at Walla Walla. One day an  order-came along from Washington for  captain Mullan to take a detachment of  soldiers and proceed forthwith to survey  out aud build a wagon road from Fort  Walla Walla-to Fort .Benton, then the  head of navigation on the Missouri river,  in order to facilitate communication between these two frontier posts. It seems  . marvelous, it seems almost beyond belief,  that within the life time of this man,  such changes should htive taken place in  the Northwest, that such fin order should  have been"possible. When captain Mullan received his orders to proceed with  the work mentioned, fill was a. wilderness  between Walla Walla and Fort Benton.  There was not even a trail acress the  country. The only inhabitants' were  warlike Indians. That this man should  return in his lifetime and find that wild  legion dotted with cities and towns,.-aud  witli railroads everywhere, brings forcibly "to mind the wonderful progress of  the country. To captain Mullan' it limsfc-  'sQctn like a dream.  In obedience to his orders, captain Mullan built.the famous road which bears his  name. Ic.isthe route afterwards taken  by the Northern I'acilic coming over the  Bockies���hence tho name Mullan tunnel.  The Mullan pass was long famous iu over-  hmd travel.  It was while engaged in this work tluit  the civil war broke out and couriers were  sent out to find the captain and bring  him and his command iu. Soldiers were  just then needed for other purposes than  .-uilding roads. But tho captain was a.  /irginian, and like all sons of Virginia  .'* 4l called "to go with his state." JLo i-e-  fued his commission in the army aud  retired to civil life. lie drifted into the  i "al estate business, first in San Francis-  c *, but he is now located in Washington,  P.

Many a one has acquired a  reputation   for superior wisdom    simply  by  flattering another's  pride by permitting him to talk on without interruption.  Many  a one.   indeed,  lias left with the  nionologiiist  the impression that he .is a  bright conversa,tioua,list, whereas liad he  attempted to do his share ofthe talking  he   might   have   been   declared  a bore.  Don't  talk   too  much.    If you-talk too  much you are likely to sa.y things which,  though  you may  forget them as soon si's  they  .-ire   spoken,   will   be  remembered  against you.    If another loses his temper,  as the saying is, when one's  temper is  very much in evidence, don't lose yours.  At least don't talk back.    Silonee.is your  most effective'-weapon.    It will tear his  very vitals, whereas if you arc an ignoramus don't give the fact away by ailing  your  limited   vocabulary.     If   you   fire  wise you will always  keep a bridle on  your tongue, find fire, therefore in to need  of admonition.    Be cautious about that  which is everyone's family subject, self.  Hundreds of things you may say about  yourself,  .and think that they will never  be  heard from again.    But they are almost certain to be repeated, and in such  a maimer as to make you appear ridiculous or despicable.'    Don't talk too much.  Let others do the talking and be happy.  Let others exhibit their weak minds.  Let others uncover their shady past and  tdeir not over-bright present. But you  ���don't talk too much.  Diplomacy Saved the Day.  A curious story  is current  that purports to deal with an incident that is said  to have occurred during the recent visit  of emperor William to the French  training ship Iphigcnie.    During  the  dinner  the emperor said that by frankly and definitely abandoning  the  lost  provinces,  France avould be left free to devote  herself in peaceful security to her own welfare and that of tho world.    The French  captain promptly answered that the  rejoinder   might   be   made   that   Prussia  never had the slightest right  to  Alsace-  Lorraine, which she tore by force from  France,    and    that    if    Prussia    would  restore   those  provinces,   France   would j  willingly disarm,    " It looked  for a. moment,"  goes  tho  story, "as  though the  reapprochoment between   the kaiser and  his host might be upset by a touch.    But  the emperor, seeing the picture of a lady  on the table nearest him, asked whose it  was.    Learning it was the captain's wife,  he  promptly   offered   her health   as   a  toast,  which  the  gratified  captain was  most pleased at, appreciating that it Avas  the kaiser's unspoken  apology.    And so  the dangerous " psychological  moment"  in the emperor's visit.passed away.  Punished and Rewarded.

A Subordinate Lodge Instituted.  A subordinate lodge of Oddfellows was  organized at Trail night before last by  grand master Welsh of Ncav Westminster,  assisted by grand chaplain Clements of  Nelson, and members of the Nelson and  liossland lodges. The lodge was instituted with twelve charter members and  twenty-four were initiated. The initiates were put through the lirst degree  by the 'members of the Nelson lodge, and  they got through the work about 12  o'clock, when an adjournment was-had  to the Crown Point hotel for refreshments. Afterwards some eighteen took  the three degrees that tire required by  the order before members become full-  fledged. This work was done by the  members of the liossland lodge, and occupied the time until four o'clock in the  morning, and it was half past four when  the proceedings ended with the singing  of. Auld Lang Syne. In addition to the  thirty-six already in the lodge, there are  fifteen applicants awaiting consideration.  The work required is exacting, but some  of the Nelson men are said to be well up  in it. Grand master Welsh was in Nelson yesterday. He went to Slocan City  today, and expected to be in Sandon on  Friday. He will return to Nelson on  Saturday, and will visit the Nelson lodge  officially on Monday night.
