Maxwell Stevenson Now "Drifting on.  tlie Ledge Which He Has in  the Highlander Tunnel. ���  Maxwell Stevenson of Ainsworth continues  to  moot  with   great  success  in  ���the   development   of   tlie   Highlander  lodge through his long development tunnel.    He has now a crew of 15 men al  work and the chief work ho has in hand  is drifting along the big ledge.    At th**  point where the ledge was cut the ote  was  very much  scattered  throuirh  the  entire  width,  but a drift was  started  on  what looked  like a  likely string*-!*  and this has continued, to widen  with  each foot of drift until yesterday thero  were two feet of good clean ore showi'i"*  in tho face of the  drift,  as well as a  large body  of concentrating ore.    Tli-*  main crosscut has now been run in bO  feet beyond the big ledge and the diamond   drill   borings   indicate   that   m-  other 30 feet will tap the Mamie ledge,  from  which the liifrli  cold  and coppei  values  were secured.    Nothing further  is being dono at present, however, upon  the crosscut, as the entire force is engaged  in  exploring the  big  ledge,  th*  -.���hicf values of which so far appear ic  Le silver and lead.

PILOT BAY, July 12.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���As far back as 1891, when  many other mining camps which have  since become famous were entirely unknown, "Tom" Wall, prospecting up La-  france creek towards the Kootenay divide,   found   high, grade  ore,   carrying  gray   copper   and   galena,   and   staked  three claims.    He stuck to his discos-  cry through good and evil report,   md  now, after 10 years' work and the expenditure of $7000, he has the gratification of uncovering on one of his claims  a body of shipping ore which will certainly prove remunerative.   Until three  years ago nothing more than the necessary assessment was done on the claim-*,  but since that time a more systematic  plan of development has been followed,  and there is now over 250 feet of tunneling,    besides     considerable   surface  work.   The.pay ore recently discovered'  is on the Snow King claim, on whicli  there is a "lime dyke"' 100 feet wide  in which occurs a mineralization of 40  feet, traceable for 700 feet.    Two hundred feet below this showing in the new  tunnel, which has been driven 105 feet,  there is from four to eighteen inches' of  hundred   dollar  ore,   being galena  and  copper with a-lime quartz gangue.    A_  streak of copper ore, which is distinct'  ���from the galena, carries averages of.15  .to  20  per cent copper,  with values  in  silver and gold.    In the opinion of experts'who have examined the showing,  further  development   is   likely  to   disclose larger bodies of ore of equal grade,  but even with the present showing: Mr..  Wall has a nice little mine in sight.  Across the creek from the Snow King,  on the same group, there is a five fooi.  vein of concentrating quartz, carrying  silver and lead, the former in high proportion, and here acain  Mr.  Wall- expects.to have a paying proposition.   On  this showing also considerable work has.  .been done.. - On-the seven claims, comprising- the'.group there areother^meri-/  tofious .showings,' some" yieldjng'~ver.v-  high assays, but on none of'these has  any great amount of work been done.  The Wall group is situated seven find  a half miles from the lake, by the present trail, which may be considerab1.,  shortened. The owner has erected buildings of good capacity and has everything in shape for systematic work. The  property is a "tunnel proposition'  throughout, _\ condition *'*hich will  prove an important factor in the economical development of the veins and'  the extraction of ore.  A gang of men from Kaslo arrived  here today to work  on the Crawford  ?creek  trail.    In  this   -.onnection   there  -is'a great deal of dissatisfaction amons*  the prospectors making their headquarters here.   They are the builders of the  'trail, which they voluntarily constructed  in order to open up the Crawford Creek,  Canyon   Creek  and   St.   Mary's   camps,  which are in no. way tributary, to Kaslo.  save  in0 the matter of recording, and,  they not unnaturally feel'that when tne  jnoney��� is^.to=b.e^spent=onJhe^trail^the=  -work should be given to the men -,yho  are opening up properties in the camps  to  which  it  gives  access.    There  are'  plenty of prospectors here who would  be glad to have a few weeks' work _ on  this  trail,  and  who  are  interested' in  seeing that the'work is well'done.  .Growing Numher of Lepers.  ,  NEW YORK, July 12.���it Washington dispatch to the-Tribune: says:    The  surgeon general of the marine hospital  service is not ready to publish the results thus far obtained under his direction in the attempt to enumerate the  known cases of leprosy in the United  States, for tbe returns are far from com ���  plete.    But sufficient material  has already been secured by the experts who  have'been investigating for-the last two  years to indicate that there are at lea.st  1000 lepers in this country, most of them  immigrants from abroad, and to warrant  startling recommendations to congress  for their segregation.    The commit1.j-.  consisting of surgeon J. H. Wmte, chairman, and passed assistant surgeons G.  T. Vaughan and M. J. Rosenau, have  been working under congressional  authority since 1899...They sent circular  letters to physicians; health officers, hospital superintendents and.others in 6u0  localities, covering the entire country,  asking for reports and information regarding leprosy patients.    Eight thousand circulars, have been sent out aai  only  2000_\ replies" .have   been  icceived.  From these 277 lepers have been located  and their names and addresses obtaiu-  - ed."   About 100 are'^known to live in N *w  Orleans^ many of < whom are well-to-do  '. persons of good families. - In New York  - seven cases have Ijeen reported. In San  Francisco 15 'cases are known, 12 are  confined in the ^pesthouse. Owing to  the fact that'three-fourths of the circulars have brought^ no replies,, especially  from suspicious districts, the authorities-estimate" thafjbnly about one-fourth,  of the cases bf leprosy have been reported. The commission will almost  certainly recommend .to congress-in its  forthcoming'preliminary report that national lazarettos be established in several parts of the country���one," -perhaps,.  at New Orleans;.'ohe in New York, and  .another in Minnesota or Montana.

The current revenue, nude  up, as it is, of water and electric light  rates, license fees, and incidental receipts from police court fines and sc*\*-  enger fees, is sufficient to pay all the  costs incident to operating the water  a*nd light systems, the ordinary running  expenses of the city, and in addition  build sidewalks and make street improvements.    Extraordinary ; expensss,"  such as interest on debentures, se ver  construction, and the disbursements on"  account 'of sundry creditors (whatever  that means), will be met from real es-;-  tate taxes and the money realized fronv  the sale of debentures.  The receipts from the two great revenue-earning public utilities were $20.-  496.02, and the disbursements for construction and maintenance of the same  utilities were' $5873.02. It must be admitted that this is a good showing;  a showing that few cities in Can:. !a  can make. .      /  -The disbursements on account of  "public health" are not normal, because  of the small-pox scare; and it mi;;ht  not be out of place to say that the eity  officials should, by this time, be able  to care for such scares without incurring abnormally large expenses."

It is probable that an equally important  Canadian delegation will be present at  the coronation next year.  Concealing Conditions.  NEW YORK, July 12.���The London  correspondent of the Tribune says: Referring to the Salisbury government's  admission that they, had information  respecting the shooting of British  wounded at Vlakfontein so far back as  June llth, the Daily Mail, whose correspondent was the first to make the  news public, states that this is only a  small portion of the policy of concealment now carried on. It professes to  have abundant evidence that almost  the whole theater of.war is in a much  worse condition than the public is allowed to know. The state of affairs in  Cape Colony in particular is said to  be of a most serious uature, due almost  A meeting of the finance committee  of the city council was called for last  evening to discuss the matter of striking a tax rate .for the year, but owing  to the absence of mayor Fletcher and  alderman Selous nothing more than an  informal discussion of the rate resulted.  From what was dropped by the members of the committe, however, it may  be inferred that the rate this year will  not exceed 14 1-2 mills. This will only.  provide the amount necessary to meet  the interest charges and sinking funds  for the various debentures, so that any  heavy expenditures which may be undertaken by the council will have to be  =pi*ovided=for=in=-some=other^way.:^-T-his>  in the opinion of the majority of the  members of the council appears to be  preferable to making any big increase  in the tax rate.  Provision for the interest and sink-  nig fund for the debenture issue of 1897  is the first matter to receive attention.  It is in providing for this issue that the  only tax upon improvements in Nelson  comes in. Last year,the council levied  upon lands assessed at $1,247,250 and  upon improvem-nt? amounting to $4l)D,-  075 with a rate of 2 3-4 mills, which  yielded a sum suiiicient to meet interest and sinking fund requirements.  This year, while there is no very great  increase in the assessment of the land,  there is a very perceptible gain in^.the  assessed value of t'.-.�� ^improvements,  so that the same.-amount can be raised  this year with a smaller rate. To raise  the amount rc'TViircd'this year a rate of  2 1-2 mills will be sufficient, as it will  provide $4476.06, or $176.66 more than  is actually required. This would make  the rate pf taxation on improvements  in Nelson 1 1-4-Tniils upon their asseseds  value, which is" genefilly about 25 per  cent under their actual value, a rate  which caiuiot bo touched by any other  city in Canada. With respect to the  other debentures the only increase to be  provided for is with respect to the interest and sinking fund required for  the recent issue, which for the present  year calls for the raising of another  $4300. This will require the increasing  of the rate of taxation over last year by  at least :. 1-4 uiIHk upon the land) ar*-  se?sir.ent of $1,250,360, which, added to  the rate of the previous year will bring  T.he total rate levit-d upon the lands to  provide for the debenture!- of 18.18, 1.S90,  and 1901, up to 12 mills, or a total leVy  ���^���n lands for al! purposes up to 14 1-2  mills, and on improveinc its, upon 50  per cent of their assessed value, of 2 1-2  mills.  The increase in the rate upon lands  is insignificant when it is remembered  that practically uo incn-.ase was ma'le  this year in the assessed value or the  lands, the value returned this yef.V being $1,250,360, as against $1,247,250 for  the previous year. Were improvements  taxable the same as lands there wouM  be a value of S2.3;10.970 to levy against,  in which event a rate of 8 1-4 mills  would have been sufficient for present  purposes.

There was  many sunstrokes, prostrations and faint-  ings in the streets, which kept the ambulance busy. The number of omnibuses running was considerably reduced in consequence of the exhaustion  of the horses, and the iron works and  shipbuilding yards were seriously  handicapped on account of the enforced  abst-nce of the workmen who were suffering from heat.

L., St. Elmo, Homestake,  Spitzee, and Big Four.   All the men at  the War Eagle quit this morning, with"  the exception of two who were working  in the shaft, and they will quit tomorrow morning at 7 o'clock.    There will  not then be a man left at work in any  of the B. A. C. properties, the War Eagle, or the Center Star.   All carpenters  employed in the mines affected by the   ��� ,V'_��j|  strike quit work today in sympathy with ^^X-^Si  the miners and the tieup is, therefore,^"' ' "  as complete as it could be.

The Miners'f  Union issued a statement of the strike'  cause as follows:    "The foundation of  the trouble is the fact that nearly half-  the mine employes are paid 20 per cent,  less than for the same labor in other  -  camps, and the annoying practices in ���  troduced.    Fiist,  espionage and blacklisting,   by  which   many   of  the ablest  members were compelled  to seek employment elsewhere.   Second, revocation  of the privilege of the secretary in'be-_  ing allowed to solicit members anions*;  non-union  men   off  duty  on  company  premises.

They were uninjured, but reports  today say that there are 36 more nr*ti  still on another island at present unknown to the police. There weie no  union boats sent out last night by the  fishermen, but one or two unimportant  fights took place. One Jap appears to  have been drowned in one of Wednesday's fights and the net of two wuite  men was cut up and the white men laid  out. While the patrol is going out  again tonight, most of the Japs ha*, e  been busy fishing tins afternoon. A  sensation was caused in court this morning in the hearing of the cases of the  six men by the arrest in the courtroom  of Frank Rogers and Joe Desplane, two  of the best known strikers, who are  charged with being concerned in the  marooning. Their arrest was take.i  quietly, although the courtroom >vas  crowded to suffocation all the morning. The constable's story of the search  and finding of the firearms of the strikers in the boat where the six men were  arrested was the feature of this morning's hearing. The case is still going  on this afternoon.  The six fishermen charged with molesting Japs on Wednesday night wore  this evening committed for trial in a  higher couit.       Notes.

The Rossland Miner has quit douole-
leading  its   heavy   editorials  and   now
prints them in double-column measure.
Tho   double-leading   did   not   improve
their quality,  and  the new style oniy
adds to their quantity.    The  Miner  is
attempting to prove that the men working in the mines at Rossland are fitting   higher   wages   than   are   paid   iu
other mining camps, and it is making
" an egregious ass of itself.    As a matter of fact, the wages paid in Rossland
are lower than are paid in any of toe
camps   adjacent   to   Rossland,   and   as
low as are paid in any quartz camp in
tho United States west of the Mississippi
liver.    In every camp in Kootenay and
- Yale, except Rossland, there is a standard % wage  for  men working in  mines.
The wages aro as follows for a day of
1 "eight hoursr- Machinuinen   ?3.50,  liam-
morsmen   $3.25,   crimen   and   shovele*s
?3.    In shafts and wet ground, 50 cents
a day extra is paid.   In Rossland, muiti
of the minig is done by contract, two
of the mine managers refusing to hi*-***
men hy the  day;   but where men are
paid.by the day, the following is thn
scale:    Machinemen $3.C0, carmen and
shovelers S2.50.    All the work is done
by machines, so there are no hammem-
men employed.   This shows conclusively
ihat the mine-; at Rossland aro paying
carmen and shovelers the same rate of
wages as prevail in Colorado, Utah, and
California,   three  states   in   which   th-*-
cost of living is much less than in Rossland  or, pny  camp  in  Kootenay.    But
when' comparisons  are  made with the
wages   paid   carmen   and   shovelers   in
-Montana,   Idaho,  Oregon,' Nevada,  and
"Arizona, it will he found that the Rossland  rate  is  less  by  50  cents  to   me
/lollar a day than the rates prevailing
in these great quartz mining countri*'*!.
Surely    the    much-advertised    mining
camp  of  Rossland,   with   all - its  great
mineral   wealth   of   cold   and   copper,
should be able to pay the same rate of
wages as prevail in less-favored British
Columbia camps, camps like Nelson and
Ymir and Landreau and Moyie and Kimberley and Phoenix and Greenwood and
Camp   McKinney.    But   the   Rossland
Miner says NO!   in a page of double-
column   editorial  hoswash,   and  would
make it appear that this is a poor, and
a cheap country, and that Rossland is
the   poorest  and   the  cheapest   mining
camp in all the country.

" Canadians arc awakening to the evils
" of this class of cheap laborers and ate
" considering the enactment of an ox-
" elusion law. They know that the cx-
." elusion act is based upon the treaties
'" to which the Chinese .government has
'• given its consent. They know that if
'" there were no desire on the part of
"the Chinese to enter this couniry
" there would be no need for the oppo-
" sition to the 'exclusion act." The Argonaut appeals/to" the people-of California to awaken to the danger with
which they are threatened, and to organize 'to defeat the attempt of '.he
Eastern -commercial and sentimental
classes to open the door for the incoming of hordes >of Chinese laborers.
Twenty-odd years ago the elector?
of the state of California had a chance
to cast a secret ballot on the question
of Chinese exclusion. The vote was almost unanimous for exclusion. If The
Tribune is not mistaken, only -100 votes
were cast in favor of allowing the Chinese to come into the state at will. One
of the results of that declaration at the
ballot-hox was the passage hy congress
of a law that excluded Chinese for a
term of 20 years. That term is about
to expire, and an. organized effort is
being made in the Bast to defeat the
re-enactment of the .law. The Argonaut of San Francisco, which cannot
be classed as other than a high-clas.*,
independent journal,. strongly favors
the re-enactment of the exclusion law.
It says, in-reply to the contention" cf
.the New York'' Journal of Commerce
that there never will bo any.-danger of
.1 serious influx of Chinese to thb.tJhitid
States, that-only a few shiploads of.
them came after the first importation;

The rate of. taxation for this year
has not yet been fixed by the city coimi-
cil. According to, figures compiled by
the city clerk, a levy of It 1-2 mills will
be required to meet the interest and

issued. This, is a slight increase over
last year, but six months' interest and

have to be provided for on the $100,000

" .NELSON,' July .i2.'^-'.To..;the' Editor ofi
The Tribune:  I see by your issue of the
'Sthrinstaht'that the-musicians of this:
town propose to form-aprotectivo union,
but I'thiiik. that it is. the general public-
who are in need of protection. Ifc is time,
certainly  that something  was  done to
ensure better music being discoursed on
our- streets,, for at- present it must strike
a   "foreigner"   as   painfully  discordant.
1 iilo not Wish to' discourage budding talent,-but would suggest that the proposed
examination of local musicians be held
by -.disinterested, judges; who. would not-]
fear giving offence by their decisions,
and who should, themselves, have a
good idea of what band music really is.
In a recent encounter on one of our
streets with a local band I was struck
by the elementary nature of their performance. As long, as only, the drums
were played the e'lToct was noisy and
harmless, but once the other performers commenced one was led to wis,h the
drums had remained unaccompanied;
for the air was rent by discordant
sounds from various instruments, none
ot which were in tune, and yet the performers seemed quite satisfied and hap-
pliy unconscious of anything wrong.
To a sensitive ear such "music" is torture, and should be either discontinued
or improved.-I fear that were tho bulk
of our street musicians subjected to any
complete examination there would bo
very few left to form a union. At any
rate the proposed examination should
be held irrespective of any "admitted
musical attainments."
NELSON, July 12.— To the Editor of
The Tribune: What a blessing is the gift
of humor, and how gratified the Miner's
readers should feel, at its excruciatingly funny articles. The perigrinating pen
pusher of that journal fairly surpassed
Himself today, in the course of his police
court notes. Tho objections of a lady
to confine her " feathered pets" at the
demand of the neighborhood, when adjoining her house are several acres of
uncultivated land, seem unintelligible
to this humorist. If a valuable dog, or
say, an insignificant child had goiu.'
up the "flume" by eating poison, would
he then regard it au opportunity for
mirth? It is possible some of the Miner's
readers have not yet acquired that very
subtle gift of humor owned by the scribe
and also by the poisoner. However, the
latter may yet find it a mixed blessing.
    A.  BOOTH.
AINSWORTH, July 11.—To the Editor
of The Tribune. Why do not some of our
very rich men provide and endow a
Home for Working Girls? I have long
had such a scheme, but lack the money
to carry it out. My scheme is to build a
home, where girls whe'n sick, or out of
work, or destitute, or too old to work,
could go and be cared for. I think it
would be so nice for girls that have no
home and no friends to have such a
place to go to. It is very hard that they
have not, and for that reason we have
so many bad girls in the world. Nobody
seems to take auy interest in them.
Some people have an idea that a working girl is nobody. They look at her as
if she was a stone or a dog, aud so many
girls turn to bad just for that reason.
They think that nobody cares for them.
People should treat thoir servants as
they should like to be treated themselves, then they will get true, faithful
servants. I h'avo kown servants that
Lked their mistresses so well that they
would lay down their lives for them.
And lots more would do the same
if they were treated well.

In the resulting misery, the "fact of having plenty of  company gave her no consolation. Sho  had had many suitors, both because  she was the only girl within a radius  of a half hundred miles, and because  she was a. very nice aud pretty one.  But only Leslie a'rid Dennisori had ever  stood a chance, and Dennison had woii  out���no one'could quite tell why,,Maggie herself least of all, probably. Leslie  would have been the better match, viewed financially,- and looks were in his  favor decidedly.  But Maggie chose Dennison with the  usual wisdom of her kind; and having  no particular religious preferences one  way or another, went with'him.to the  nearest adobe town arid had herself  married by a padre, as being-the easiest  and quickest way out of it: And.thereof le*.* for three years Dennison had  treated her abominably. He made nothing whatever ' of ;beatiii2T her;" he''overworked hei-;- he drank. His conduct  was the scandal of the."'surroundin-*;  country. Knowing Maggie's progenitors and her own disposition, the wonder to every one was that she did not  shoot Dennison and have dono.with'.it.  Since nothing of the kind happened,  the only possible conclusion was that  she loved him. Which she did. If he  had neglected her she might perhaps  have, had-recourse to a six-shooter; but  it js at least having- some notice taken  of you to be knocked down, ami Maggie frequently was.  -."The treatment told on her good looks  after a while, the more especially as  they were of the sort that are of youth  alone, The pains and hard usage age  ii woman early. So when Maggie was  24 she looked 10 years older than that.  Then Dennison left her. He found  sogjebody he liked better, one day when  ho went over to the railroad town 25  miles away, and took her away with  .hint. Maggie had no notion where ho  had gone, else she would probably have  followed him. Instead, she .stayed on  the ranch and hoped and pined. -3he  carried on the ranch alone." it" beinu,  one of those: plain .ranches having iio  especial 'boundaries,..no-'especial flails  or crops, and only a scrawny raiich cow  or two and a few chickens, There were  "it couple of hundred head of .stock, cattle  that roamed the country and were, lo  all intents, wild, and some broncos of  much tlio same sort. Those required 'io  care, so Maggie spent, most of hor .days  sitting oh the sill of the back door, of  the adobe and staring off toward-'the.  mountains and thinking about Denison.  The Mexican'Woman who'lived w.m  her squatted on. the ground-in- the  shade in summer, in the sun in winter���  ���.with a black tapalo over her head, smoking cigarettes until the soil in her neighborhood was strewed with straw papsr  stumps. She had 14 children. Maggio'  had rione. There had been a ba'jv,  but it had died. A white-washed boar.!  fence upon the top of a knoll that .was  "to~15c~seen-from^tlfe^baclr^door-marK-*rd7  where the grave had ^cen before th *  coyotes had torn it up. Besides the wo-  jniiii and the 14 children there were two  "greaser" vaqueros, who.se duties were  not burdensome, who ate jerked beel  and frijoles, anil helped Maggie wait for  Dennison to come back.  But though she sat day after day witli  her fading eyes looking toward the  mountains-beyond which was the rail  way and from which came the road, r.<>  Dennison appeared. Other people cairn*  by at long intervals. Twice Leslie had  ridden up. There had been a year'**  space between the visits. And at. tin:  second one Maggie had seemed no nearer consolation or common sense tha-.i  at tlie first. Then he had let 18 months  elapse.  When ho came down the road thi-  time he saw Maggie, from afar off, sitting on the doorsill with her chin in  her hands, the Mexican woman hugging  a narrow strip of shade, for it was near  noon, and some chickens and children  variously disposed. He dismounted with  a clanking of spurs and led his bronco  to the water troug-h.  Maggie rose without haste and went  over to him. She might have seen him  minutes before from any sign of surprise or pleasure she made. Hers was  the apathy of the woman of the frontier rnnc'ho. to whom life is as her outlook upon the world���dead, fruitless,  and dry. She took him into the house  when the pony was turned over to the';  vaquero. Had he heard news of Denni-:  son, she wanted to know. Leslie looked  serious���so serious' that she leaned forward with her yellow hands claspel  hard. What was it, she asked. Denniso-.i  was ��� dead. It was that he had como  to tell her. He had just returned from  the .other side of the Colorado, and had  '.had news of lier husband there, quite  by i chance.  V, "Tell me," said Maggie, "tell me ths  .whole thing. I want to know."  ���. Leslie told her, tipping back in hi:;  chair with his hands clasped behind  his line head, and his buckskinned lege  crossed with a swing.  "Well," he started, "it was this way,  you see. He lit ont with a woman���;i  bad egg from over Central way." (Central City was the railway town.) "Thoy  went into California, and they set to.  keeping a rest'rant at Meyer's mine. lie  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  threo percent.  GRANGE V.

He ;-_oi  into a scrap there���and the other fellow,  was a better shot, 1 guess.   That's all."  "Who told you?" asked Maggie.  "Two fellows that was-on the coroner's jury," he answered her.  "What did he fight for?"  "Woman,"  he told  her curtly.    "She  was the other man's'wife."  Maggie's face was so near.the color of  the alkali sand outside that it could not  turn pale. And the only expression of  which her eyes had ever been capable  was a dull hopelessness. So there would  have been no guessing how the news  affected her except that her fing'jrs  strained until the joints of them were  livid. "Where's he planted?"', she  asked."  He told her the name of the town.  "If you'll marry me'now, I'll take you  to see his grave."    .  Maggie began to cry then. Even when  Dennison had departed she had riot shed  a tear. So it was all the worse now.  Tears held back for four years frcm.  eyes, heat-dried,i come painfully.  Leslie- thought; for a while that :he  was going to die. -And that would be'  his fault. It occurred to. him that l*e  had perhaps been abrupt. He had.never  seen a woman cry, because women had  net entered much into his scheme of  things. For a while he sat and,shifted  on his chair and watched, very unhappy indeed. Then, he got up aiul  went to her and put his hand on her  shoulder tentatively. She pushed it off  ���and he felt that he had been'unwise  again. So he walked to the door and  stood there, his feet wide apart, considering the glaring Hat "and looking  back at Maggie, oyer his shoulder, now  and then.  She cried for a" good half hour,"-ind  the whole experience frightened Les-  lio-so much that it Avas not until nearly  sunset that he dared get up to the subject again. He meant to go at it tactfully, this time, but it came at the end  ;of a long, strained pause. "Say, what  about our getting joined in wedlock and  all. that, anyway?" He had 'held his  breath for fear she would cry again.  But she took it quietly this time. "I  ain't sure he's dead," she answered. ;  "I am," sai'dljeslie.'. *'But I'll go fetch'-  the fellows that told me about it, and  you can find out for yourself."; He'weut  out and saddled his bronco, and departed  by the way he had come. "I'll be back,'  he paid.  He had.no idsa where the fellows wore  to be found, They had been prospectors,  and might- be anywhere in Arizona  New Mexico, Colorado or California; by  now, But though- his-phrasing might  have been less polished, his sentiments  were identical with.; those of Calonne���  if it were-but impossible, it should be  done. It took him four months to dc  it. But at the end of that time he rode  up to the adobe again.". There were  two men. with him, and they went ihtc  details th*it" caused Maggie to be convinced. ..-.-���     ���_���-.���..  "All  right,"  she said  to Leslie  tliat!'  night, "I'll marry you."   It was not enthusiastic, but Leslie.made .allowances,  and took what he could get.  So, the next morning, the ranch was  left in charge of the two vaqueros, the  Mexjeanywoman, the 14 childreu_and.fi:n__  IMPEBIAL BANK  0_ET    O^ICT-A-ID-A.  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

The same pad re  who had made her Mrs. Dennison made  her Mrs. Leslie now, and gave her his  blessing. She took it stoically.. Ther:  she and her husband took the 'train: foi  California to see Dennison's grave;  The head-board to it had the iui*-  name in black letters,on a plain board-,  ground. Maggie did not like that, so  Leslie paid for a new one���-white, painted with the Christian names as well.  When it was duly put up, they went on  their way. The way was toward the  Mojave. Leslie had mining interests  up thero, and being in the gener.il  neighborhood, he took the opportunity  of looking them up.-  At Mojave they left the train, hired  a wagon, and proceeded toward the interior. All day they drove along a  road that wound between soft-rolling  hills, pale-brown, shrub-flecked. Tht'  sun scorched. Near the railway there  were small cultivated bits, where greo.a  things grew. But they stopped after a  while. By the afternoon it was desolation. - .    '  "Where'll we put up tonight?" Maggie  asked���the first time there-Had been a  word in two hours or more.  .There was a house ahead, he, told  her. He had inquired as to'that. -It was-  35'' minutes from the railway���more or  less���and it belonged to one Dennis, it  seemed.  They came to it in due time, but Dennis himself was not around������ just, the.i.  His Avife explained that he had gone to  drive in a: heifer and her calf. She  took charge of them herself, in the  meanwhile. " Slie was a pretty little  thing, tragically-youiig, considering the  hardships and the loneliness; of her life.'  Her eyes were innocent and big, and  her cquntenance was of-a sweetly insipid cast, with a skin sti.ll.of peaches  and cream. She' ,wtas glad to see Mag--  gie. Probably she would -have bee.,  glad to see anyone, for the sake of human speech. However that was," .u;  gave Maggie attentions of a kind she  had never thought of.  And Maggie was feminine at heart,  though she had had little enough chance  to realize it. The gentle coddling of  the little thing melted her. Within  half an hour sho had learned to "like  her���perhaps- even more than that���to  Nelson Branch"-Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  have some affection for her.   They were  hand in hand, on the'edge of a bunk,  talking, when Dennis came in.   Dennis  was merely Dennison with a last byl-  lable the less and a beard the more.. .  Maggie knew him at once.    And lie  knew her.   His jaw fell.  "This is my husband," said the girl.  The tone of adoration and possession  made Maggie sick���but only for a short  instant.   She. stood up and put out her  hand.   Dennis hesitated; then he came  forward and -took it.    His terror whs  making him quake.v  "Pleased to meet. you���Mr. Dennis,"  said Maggie, with stress on the name,  and looking him straight in. the eyes.  His own fell:'; ."Sure!" he agreed, lamentably. He tried to smile. "I got.  to go to the corral," he said. ...  "Leslie was there. Maggie thought of  that, and of what might possibly follow. "My husband's out there���Mr. Leslie's out there; you'll- find him," *slie  called. It was a warning-���with intent  to save bloodshed.- He might take it  or not, as he choose.  He took it. Instead of to the corral,  he went: to his room and locked himself in;;.and examined his revolver/  against an emergency.  But -Maggie went out to the stable.  She found her husband rubbing down  the stock. "Say," she said, standing  beside him with her hands on her hips,  "say���lie ain't Dennis at all. He's Dennison.   He's my husband."  It was Leslie's turn to have his jaw  drop., "Did you know it?" she >������-  manded.  He faced \\c_. "I did not, Mag. I  wouldn't have played you any s.ii-Jli  dirty trick."  "All right," she said. She knew the  truth when she heard; it. "It's done  and there: ain't any sense making the  girl pay for it. Let on he's Dennis as  long as we're here."  -'���' Leslie nodded and went on with the  rubbing down.  Maggie returned to-the house. Mis.  Dennis was getting supper in that one  of the three rooms, of the shack, which  served.-; for kitchen and' dining room.  Maggie ascertained that, then went  around to the window of the room  where Dennis was, and tapped on it.  He appeared at it, ready -to jump back.  She motioned to him to, open it. He.  did- so. "Put up that gun," she advised. "Nobody's going' to. hurt you."  He put it up, within easy arm's reach.  "Now you listen," she said. ."I thought  you was dead. Two fellows told Las-  lie and me that you was. I waited for  you to come back for four years, and  you didn't come or send word. They  said as how you got into a shooting  scrape down south and was killed. So  I married Leslie and he took me to see  your grave.' We had a new board p.ic  on it. too." She leaned her arm on the  windowsill and spoke at leisure. "Now,"'  she said, "you see here. I got married  on the straight. There can't anybody  ���bother me nor him. But it ain't chat  way with you. You didn't. You'll be  in all kinds of a mess if I want to talk.  But I won't."  "But I won't," she repeated, "so long  as you treat that little thing on the  square.

It was lot  Maggie's fault; however.. :Sh,e helped  get the suppeiyand made as. much conversation as she coiifd. She smiled on  the justand the unjust.alike. She heard  without the auiver of a lash the .detailed story of Dennis' courting from Ins.  wife. Dennis heard it, too, and did aot  enjoy it much more.    She helped with  ���the breakfast the next morning,, too,  and then, just before the wagon was  ready,' she had speech with Den.lis  again.     Leslie was with her this time.  , He lent a moral support, which very little would have sufficed to make physical.- :  '������������-"Don't you forget .what.I told yo.i,"  she advised, dispassionately. "Your  wife-7-she's got my address���and she's  promised to let me know if ever she's  in;trouble of any kind. So you'd better, .not be the one ...to. get ..hei' into. it.

'  '���''   They drove off toward tlie' sunrise 1*3-  :tween the eternal, rollins hills. Presently Leslie turned to her. .'."Do you care  about that bad egg still?" he asked.  Slie .idid; not reply.

Rev. J. B. Morgan is attending the  Baptist convention at the Coast this  week and instead of the regular preaching services there will be a special  sacred song service on Sunday evonlng,  July 1-1, in the Baptist church, to which  all are invited.  Tomorrow at Emmanuel -church Itev.  William Munroe will preach in the  morning on "Lessons from the Exodu-"."  At the evening service, which will be at  8 o'clock, the subject will be "Twenty  Minutes Late." Good music will be tendered by the choir.  One drunk was fined $5 by the police  magistrate yesterday morning. The offender paid the flr.e without complaiat,  as he figured he was money ahead by  being locked up. He had close upon  $150 with him when he woke up in the  morning, wliich probably would have  beeu missing had he been left at large  with his jag.  The members of the- local Oranec  lodge, following their time-honored custom, mot at the lodge room last evening and received the annual password.  The 12th was not celebrated anywhere  in Kootenay this year, the members of  the-order concentrating their efforts on  the big.rally at Vancouver, which' was  the largest in the history of the order  in- this province.  ' Meetings of special interest will be  held in the Salvation Army barracks on  Sunday and Monday, it being the occasion of the farewell of adjutant and Mrs.  McGill, who for the past year have had  charge of the Salvation Army work in  Nelson. Some of the city ministers are  expected to bo present at the Monday  night meeting. After a program of nvi-  sic, song and speeches, ice cream and  cake will be served.  James Findley of the Dominion Bridge  Company of Montreal has arrived in  Nelson to look after the construction or  the - steel bridge over the Colmbia at  Robson. It will be a mouth yet bef iro.  he will be-able to make a start on the  steel work, but he will endeavor to let  a contract at once for putting in the  necessary false work. Failing to lot  this work out on a satisfactory contract  he will undertake it himself.  -J. W. Gray and Lee Logan, the two  men found in n vacant house on Lati-  mcr street, and against whom the police  lodged a charge of vagrancy, were giv--n  a chance yesterday morning to get out.  of town by 'magistrate Crease and the  police - saw that they profited by the  opportunity. Among other things th c  police found a skeleton key on one of  them, but they clearly proved that thoy  had some means of support from their  work of collecting old rubber and copper and the matter of the key was not  held against them.  Provincial constable Young yesterday  -brought in \V. J. Lowther of Howser,  who is wanted as a witness for tho  crown in the case of rex vs. Pearse, in  which the prisoner is charged with  shop-breaking. Lowther is the ow-jer  p�� the goods Etolen and was served  iSvith a subpena to attend the trial on  '������Monday, .but ho.' saw fit to Ignore tho  Subpena "and a-' bench warrant was issued for his arrest. Lowther's defense  for not attending upon the court is  that he had no money and that Ilia  steamer would not carry him for noui-  ing. He will be given an opportunity  to make his explanation to judge Forin  this morning, when the' case of rex vs.  Pearse will  come on again for trial.  The bowling green in the rear of i'.*o  courthouse is becoming a very popular  resort for those whose chief regret is  that there is no ice for curling i*i the  summer time Two bowlinjr matches  of 12 ends were played off on the gret-n  yesterday. In the first a team skipped  by J. A. Turner was opposed to a team  skipped by J. F. Weir. The Weir men  had a lead of two at the close of the  llth, end, but in the last end the Turner team laid in five shots and won  by a score of 13 to 10. The players were  Jacob Dover, Harry Wright, D. Booth  and J. A. Turner; and P. E. Wilson, 11.  E. Wallcy, J. C. McLellan and J. F.  Weir. The second match was played  by three men on a side, the players being C. D. Jarvis, C. E. Smitheringale  and A. Grant; and Tony Turner, H. F.  MeLeod and E. T. H. Simpkins, the  match resulting in a victory for the  Simpkins team by a score of 8 to 7.  ing at 8 o'clock.

From  the report of the watchman who was in  charge of the mill nothing has been  discovered as to- the cause of the Jire.  .The fire started about midnight on  Thursday night or early yesterday  morning. The watchman reports that  he had made his rounds of the mill  but a few minutes before a light in one  .p_o_rtion_of_the_mill_attracted-his-atteti-  tion. He at once started to investigate, but before he could get water  on the fire had gained such headway  that he could not. get it under control  and in a remarkably short time the  entire mill was In ruins, The mill and  buildings will be' a toJ;al loss, the vaL.ie  of which is placed at ?30,000.

' ANACONDA;:.Mont t'v-Juiy   12.���Mrs.  Joseph   Winfield  Brake of Buffalo,   N.  Y.,  authoress  and' Washington   correspondent for the New'York Journal, lias  been   in   Montana  for  the  past  week,  searching for "Calamity Jane," the notod  plains  woman.    Yesterday Mrs.  Brake  discovered "Calamity Jane" in the hut  of a negress at Horr, .near Livingston.  The  poor  woman  was   suffering  with  fever  and  was   broken  in  spirit.    The  scene that followed  the offer of Mrs.  Brake   to  take   Calamity   to  her  own  home in Buffalo, where she could spend  the remainder  of her  days  in  luxury,  was  pathetic in the extreme  aiid t.he  noted frontier woman went like a child.  Calamity Jane has been on the frontier  since she was a young girl.   She was  in the Black'Hills at the time of the  killing of '.'Wild Bill" (William Hicock),  and it is said? that it was she who captured his murderer.   She rendered valua-^  ble service to Custer, Reno, Egan and  other.Indian fighters.   Of late years sho  has drifted about the state, from place  to place,  making a livelihood as best  she could.
