 ESTABLISHED   1802  FRIDAY  MORNING,  AUGUST  lfi,   1901  DAILY   EDITION  IMPORTANT  MINING   DEAL  MONTREAL SYNDICATE SECURES  VALUABLE PROPERTY.  Fifteen Claims Are Represented in the  Sale and the Purchase Money-  Has Been Paid.  The deal for the purchase of the group  of claims on the iron ridge which constitutes tlie divide between cArrow creek  and Goat river was closed yesterday,  when the final payment was made and  the title to the property vested in the  Montreal syndicate, whicli has been represented in the negotiations by William  Blakemore. There are-all told some 15  claims represented in the deal, 'which  are known as the Idaho, Dakota, La-  Grande, Cracker Jack, Cynic, Cymbric,  Rhodesia, Snowcap, Keepsake, Pacific,  Old Glory, Atlantic, Maple Leaf, Union  Jack and American Flag. In many respects this deal may be regarded as the  most important that has been perfected  in Kootenay for several years, as there  is said to be'a very good prospect that  as a result of it there will.be built up'  in the district a very important iron  and steel industry giving employment to  a large number of men. -  There are a large number interested  in tho deal as vendors, and for the past  few days they have been on the anxious  seat "while the -solicitor, for the purchasers has^ been examining into the  title to the properties affected. The  number of people interested made the  work of holding them together more or  less difficult, and it is safe to say that  C. P. Hill, who has figured in the scheme  throughout as the promoter, was the  happiest man in Nelson yesterday when  the negotiations were finally concluded  and the purchase money paid over. :  William Blakemore, who has represented ": the Montreal; syndicatevin the  negotiations, in discussing the deal with  a Tribune- representative, said it might  fairly be stated^ that one of the most  important mining deals that had Jieen  made in the district was consummated  by the paying through the Bank of  Montreal ofva sum of moneyapproximating $100,000 in cash for the mining  property situated near Kitchener. The  ideal was: the result of negotiations  ���-winch-were bpened.up in.Mpntreahthree  months ago. -when he, as mining engineer for a Montreal syndicate, took an  option upon, the property in question  ���from C; P. Hill. Since then extensive  ���wojJc has T.ech done and the sum cf  $1..i.00) oj e'rdeci.in prospecting and developing the property. In addition to  this careful examinations of the property have, been made by competent experts, and more than 50 samples of the  (3-j'it* have been submitted for assay, with  the result that he and his associate**  .'decided to complete the purchase of ihe  property without waiting for the option  to 'run its full course. In addition lo  Mr. Hill there are a number of local  ���men interested in the deal, including  ;j. Roderick Robertson, S. M." jSrydge.-*  ���and F. W. Peters.  ���The importance of the -leal, li-.' si?id.  was not to be measured by the vr'uiey  eonsideration involved, although it was  a large amont, but rather by the effect  which the consummation of tho deal in  JUkely to have upon the futureJJevQhyp_._  "���merit-of~th~e~province.    The reports of  tho  experts,   the  assays   made 'on  the  ore and the work clone upon the property, whicli consists of. 15 claims, have  disclosed the .existence of a conlinuoir  ftody of high  grade hematite iron ore.  The actual width and depth of the ledge  Jiave  not   been   determined,   but, sufficient work has been cone to show that  the "body'of the quartzite in which the  ore  occtr.'S  is  from  100 to  200  feet ii:  width, and the geological.formation favors  the conclusion that there c***i  be  no doubt of its existence at considerable depth.   The purity of the oro is one  of its marked  features, the best assay  shoAving G6  per  cent of metallic  iron,  2 per cent silica. .03 per cent sulphur,  and  a trace of phosphorous;   and- the  .average of 20  assays  taken  from  different parts of the property gave metallic iron 55 per cent, silica 10 per cent,  sulphur  .05  per  cent and  phosphorous  .01 per cent.   Prom these figures it will  he seen that the iron is at least equal  to Lake  Superior hematite in metallic  iron,  and   lower   both   in   phosphorous  and sulphur.   Whether t.he property will  develop into a proposition large enough  to justify the establishment of an iron  -���melter for the production of pig iron  ja-ttd   steel   rails   for   local   consumption  remains to be determined.   The quality  ���f the ore  is  admirable  for  this  pur-  ���pose, and when it is remembered that  ���the best coal and coke on the continent  s produced within 100 miles or so, and  hat there is abundance of limestone for  'fluxing upon adjoining property, it will  be seen that there is  nothing to  present the establishment of steel  works  if tlie property should  prove to be  cf  Isufficient   extent' to   jasi,..y   thin   step.  In the opinion of good judges such, expectations  are  not  thou-rht  to  be  too  sanguine, and the effect upon the province in the event of such  being done  [would   be  relatively  as   great   as   that  broduced by the opening up of the coal  tnines  at  Fernie  and   the  introduction  ftof  cheap  coal  and  coke.    Pig iron   is  i'wortlt $20 per ton today in British Co-  /lum'bia.     Standard   section   steel   rails  I;ire  worth  $40  and  light mine  section  |i*teel rails :?60 per ton.   Pig iron can be  ranufactured at Kitchener for 510 per  ;on, which would give heavy steel rails  it $20 and lighter sections at ��!25, and  .astings  and  machinery  used   In   the'  province would be similarly affected and  :i great saving thereby made in the outlay for mining plant. There is also the  further possibility of an export trade,  its there are no steel works upon the  Pacific coast, and no other deposit of  iron ore discovered which, without admixture, would produce simim* metal  to that of the Kitchener deposit.  If, however, it should be found that  the property is not extensive enough  to justify this programme there is still  an important aspect in "which the whole  smelting industry of British Columbia  will be benefited in the provision whicli  the property will make of the highest  quality of iron ore for fluxing purposes.  Hitherto the, ore available for this purpose has been of an inferior quality,  and has had to be brought at considerable expense from great distances. To  illustrate this it might be said that  the, Half Mines smelter is now procuring its supplies from Kamloops. It is  also a' fact worthy of note that Kitchener is near enough to the smelters at  Great Falls and Butte to bring, them  within the range of the Kitchener property's operations for this purpose.  As to his present intentions Mr. Black-  more said the program of the Montreal  men would be to devote the next year  or two to development work before deciding upon the larger scheme to follow. Meanwhile preparations will be  made to ship ore early next season to  the, various smelters for fluxing purposes. During the life of ithe bond,  Mr. Blakemore added, a crew of from  25 to 30 men had been employed, and  this staff will now be increased. In  the exploratory work diamond drills had  largely been used and he would continue  to use them. He was also considering  the purchase of a small hoisting plant  to enable the men to gain depth upon  the ore. . It was thought that work  would be continued this season until  the first of Noveniber, when it was likely  that the weather would render further  work difficult" .Next; season, however,  he hoped to be in shape to continue the  work throughout the winter, as there  would then be sufficient underground  work in hand. .  r,AS7ERT>T    CANADIAN   Y;IZ1IJNTGS  MONTUISAIj, August If).���Assets of tho  ili'l'tinct Ville Mario brink amounting to  nearly half a million dollars wore sold today fur S10,000.

GRESGEUS MAKES A RECORD  TROTS A MILE AGAINST THE ABBOT IN 2:03 1-4.  the credit of The Abbot it should be  said that not only was this his first  race of the season, but that he has abo  been sick, and his best mile since his  recovery was in the vicinity of 2:09. The  betting before the race was 100 to .IO  on Cresceus and it was lively, there  being many followers of The Abbot  Famous Stallion Beats His Opponent  Half a Length���Largest Crowd  Ever Present at a Race.  NEW YORK, August 15.���What is  looked upon as the greatest harness  race in the hlstory-of the trotting horse  is on the card for the Brighton Beach  track today. Cresceus, 2:02 3-4, and  The Abbot, 2:03 1-4, will meet for the  flrst time in a special race for $ 12,000,  trotting mile heats, the best three in  five. Cresceus recently took away from  The Abflot the world's, record against  time, and while the latter has gone  the quarter in a 1:56 gait, which, horsemen say Cresceus cannot equal, Cresceus can carry his speed further. Never  has a race been looked upon by the  trotting fraternity with--so much sensational interest; and, track favoring,  whichever wins this contest of the kings  ��� will be a red-letter event in the history of light harness horses.,- The.prospects are not bright at 10 a. m. for  the big race today at Brighton Beach,  as the weather is cloudy and threatening, but prophets say it Avill not rain,  and if it does not there is no reason  'why-the-greatest trotting event of the  year should not be sensationally fast.  The track is in fair condition, but is  fully one second slow. On the other  hand, the champion Cresceus is in the  pink of condition and owner Ketchum  is confident that he will not only beat  The Abbot but also the record of 2:05,  which he made at Detroit. The Abbot  is fit and ready for the fray, but has  not made a public appearance this year.  His owner and trainer thinks he can.  under favorable conditions, go it in  2:02.  NEW YORK, August 15.���[Night Report.]���The trotting interests of the Empire City have not received such "a boom  in a quarter of a century as was  developed  today  at  the  Brighton  Beach  track when, under the auspices of the  New   York' Trotting   Association,   the  champion stallion and champion   '���siding, Cresceus and The Abbot, came together for a purse-of ��12,000.    "Sie Abbot, with his record of 2:03 1-4 of last  season, and Cresceus, with the mark of  2:02 3-4 made at Columbus, were to decide the question of which was the one  to  go  down.in history  as  the fastest  trotting horse now living.    There was  a larger crowd present tnan ever seen  before on a New York track under the  old conditions and this has been only  exceeded a feAV times since the existence  of the old track by-the seashore. ' The  grandstand was simply packed and this  despite the fact that reserved seats with  admission cost $4,"while boxes holding  four   persons   were  all   disposed   of  at  $30 each in addition, to the regular admission.    It  was   estimated   that  Stilly  15,000 people were present.   The wea-;har  was  simply perfect for the great race  and the track Avas like velvet, though  probably a second slow.    It was about  3:30 o'clock when the drivers, Ketchum  and Geers, appeared before-the grandstand and obtained their positions for a  _ star_t_t> y__th e^fi i p^of _a^eoi n.==L.ucI*u*tvas j  with the driver of Cresceus, as he secured   the   pole,   a   decided   advantage  with two horses nearly equal in point  of record.   When a little later the horses  came from the paddock they were AVildly  cheered and they looked fit for the work  before them.   Fortunately, too, the Avind  had died down to a dead calm, so there  was   no   obstacle   in   that   line.     Each  was driven up and clown the stretch for  a warming up and Avhen they reached  the starter, Cresceus was slightly in the  lead  and they were called back.    The  next   time  down,   however,   they  were  nose and nose and'slipping along like  birds over the fields.    Then like a shot  Cresceus rushed  to the front and had  a  lead  of a  length,  which  he held  to  the Quarter, in 30 3-4.    This iead  The  Abbot had slightly .ve'ltiead '.t the half,  in  1:01 1-4,  and  he was' a very close  second   at  the   throe quarters   pole,   in  1:32 1-4.   The vast crowd realized that  a world's record was about to be made  and   the   grandstand   rose   to   its   feet,  while the multitude which was in  the  space between tho stand and the track  cheered    wildly.     Coming    down    the  stretch it was a battle royal, with The  Abbot very close up, but Crosceus with  his  bulldog grip  kept on,  nostrils  extended,  and Just managed,to  beat  his  opponent by a halt length in 2:03 1.-1,  the  Avorld's  trotting record  in  a race  To say the announcement caused tumultuous   applause: ..on   the   stand   faintly  conveys the meaning of the expression.  At  the  second, trial  they  were  sent  away  beautifully,  but The  Abbot  had  not   traveled   a   hundred   yards   before  he made a disastrous break and before  he could  recover himself his opponent  was in front.    The Abbot once settled  made   a  grand   effort   to   overtake   his  opponent,   but the son   of  Robert  McGregor  was   out  for  victory  and   kept  ahead,  reaching the quarter  in  31  1-4  seconds, the half in 1:02 1-2, the three-  ouarters   in    1:35,   and   came    rushing  home,   winning  in  2:0G   1-4,   with   The  Abbot back of the flag.   As the race was  the   best  three  in   five,   Ketchum   consented  that Cresceus go another heat.  This he did shortly before 5 o'clock, accompanied   by   a   runner   for   the   first  half,  where he was joined  by another  runner,   and   he  did   tne  mile   in   2:05,  the quarter in 30 1-2, the half in 1:01 1-2,  and the three-quarters In 1:31 1-4.

GRAND FORKS, August 15.���[Special  to The Tribune.���A big telephone' deal  Avas closed here today. R. Kerr Houl-  gate of Vancouver leased the lines owned by the Columbia Telephone and Telegraph Company and the lines of the  subsidiary company, the Northwest Telephone Company. The deal , is all the  more significant taken in - connection  Avith the recent absorption by the Pacific States Telephone of the Columbian-  American connection with the Spokane  and British Columbia Telephone and  Telegraph Company.

Mr. McKechnie is a director of  the Granby company and one of'the  largest shareholders. This is his second  trip to the Boundary. Mr. McK'schni**  stated that he was agreeably surp'i ioct  at the extent of the development work  accomplished in the Granby mines -.luring the past year. The smelter cure  was also a revelation to him, and lie  expressed the belief that cheap smelting  and low freight iaces would soon .Ism-  onstratc to the Avorld that the low --r.ido  ores of the Boundary can bo treated  at a good profit.  Mr.  McKechnie,   who  is actompd.ui-'i  by his wife, also visited the Coast.  The function of the converter plane  now being installed at the Granby smelter will be to convert matte into metallic copper. The product, though less  bulky than matte, will still have to be  sent to an Eastern refinery in order to  separate (he gold and silver value.-..  Thus the improvements now being added  will at least have tho efl'ect of accomplishing a great saving in freight rates'.  The converter building will be on the  same level as the furnace room containing the four furnaces and 100 feet  distant therefrom. The two, buildings  will be connected by a 10-ton electric  crane. The matte from the blast furnaces is first caught in receivers, wliich  in turn aro tapped out into matte ladles.  The small electric crane takes the  ladle of molten matte to the en.l of the  converter building and th'-s ihuir.-j 'he  hot metal into the tilting revcrberatory.  AVhen the converter is ready for a  charge the large -10-ton crane in the converter building place.* a large matte  ladle in front of this furnace ind by  hydraulic power the furnace is slowly  tilted until there is enough for a charge.  The large crane transfers this hot'matte  to the converter, into which it is poured.  Tho converter is uhca turned into an  upright position and the blast turned on.  The pressure blast is 12 pounds per  square inch, and it is maintained until  such time as sufficient siag has formed.  Then the blast is turned off and the  slag skimmed off into the largo ladij.

LONDON, August 15.���The Avaning  session of the house of commons Avas  enlivened today by a vigorous tilt' between sir AVilliam Vernon Harcourt  (Liberal) and Mr. Chamberlain, the colonial secretary, over lord Kitchener's  proclamation. Sir William characterized it as a "mischievous document, the  inspiration of neither lord Kitchener nor  lord Milner, but of the ministry of  Natal." He declared the government,  in arming the natiA'es, Avas ie\*erting to  a practice Avhich had left the darkest  stain on the history of the war between  England and America. The neAV policy  of the government promised to be  neither creditable nor effective and was  in contraA ention of the fundamental  principles of the St. Petersburg convention.'" The country would welcome a  statement on the status of the^Avpr on  which they were spending ��5,000,000 a  month, although it was declared ended  at the close of the last session.  Mr. Chambeilain said the Avar status'  Avas clearly indicated by lord Kitchener's  weekly reports He himself had gone  out of: the prophecymg business, but  he assured the speaker that the government's attitude was the only method  of ending the war. The colonial secretary declared that the use of native  troops .was no new policy. It had been_  pursued without adverse criticism. The'  India=troops in China had been co-operating with the troops of five of the  highest civilized powers. Regarding banishment of burghers, Mr. Chamberlain  said.Great Britrin had a right to enact  what laws she chose for the government  of a country acquired by conquest. The  .Boers must be taught that they cannot  longer cany on a guerilla warfare at no  personal risk, while Great Britain fed"  their women and children. He compared  the condition in South Africa and tho  Philippines and said the policy of America, as declared by geneiarMacAi thur's  proclamation, would certainly be the  policy of Great Britain if the campaign  degenerates into a wai of bandits.  Regarding the devastation policy, Mr.  Chamberlain said it was nothing compared with general Sherman's campaign.  He had 'talked with general Sherman  himself and Sheiman justified his action  on the ground of humanity. Mr. Chamberlain also said theie was no foundation for the repot t that lord Kitchener  was coming home.  Mr. Ascuith denied that the*e was  any question of international law involved in lord Kitchener's proclamation.  "Tlie people of those territories aie both,  de jure and de facto the king's subjects," he continued, "and tho proclamation is a warning on the lines of the  option given to tlie inhabitants of Alsace  Loraine at the end of the Fianco-Ger-  man war."  Mr. Balfour, replying, declared that  not a horse or a man would be with-  (IrawLfrom Soiith^A/riC3_unless���the���  military situat'on justified it, but that  the government had everv reason to  hope on the reassembling of parliament  next year the warlike operations in  South Africa would be practically over.

Mobile Under Water  ATLANTA, Ga., August 15.���The tropica! storm which has been raging along  the gulf coast for two days lias kmight  completely isolated the city of Mobile.  Alabama, from the outside world. It  is knoAvn that considerable damage has  been done along the water front in Mobile, but whether there has been loss of  life is mere conjecture. Nothing has  been heard from the country south of  Mobile tij) to the time tbe last wire to  Mobile failed. At half-past 4 today the  AArcstern Union oflico in Mobile was  abandoned, the water at that time being  three feet deep in the operating room.  Two hours later communication was had  for a few minutes with Mobile. The  Associated Press operator there had  made his way to the operating room in  a boat. He took up his position on  top of the switchboard severalfeet abovo  the flooded ofiice and detaching the Associated Press Avire from its place in  the board, sent this message: "Am top  of switchboard here with, a lineman.  AVater is over three feet deep in this  room and still rising. The wind is  blowing 50 miles an hour and we look  for worse things tonight. Tin* business  district is deserted."

If   the   Ledge   means   that  none   of   the   dailies _ in   Kootenay   are  returning their owners sufficient to afford a.comfortable livelihood/then the  Ledge is right;  but if it means that all  the dailies in Kootenay are subject to  the direction of persons other than their  editors, then the Ledge is wrong.   There  are four daily neAVspapers in Kootenay,  namely, the Rossland Miner, the Rossland World, tfle Nelson Miner and The  Tribune.    The Rossland Miner is  said  to be OAvned and controlled by the man-,  agement of the Le Roi Mining Company,  and its editors are not in a position to  be independent; they.are required to ad-,  vocate a policy tliat may be the opposite  of what they themselves believe in, and  if they do not do as they are bid,..they  know  that  there  are  others  ready   to  take .their places.   The Rossland World  is independent, hut may be biased.   Its  managers   are   in   sympathy  Avith   the  cause  they advocate,  and  the position  they have taken is not inconsistent Avith  independence. The Nelson Miner is owned by the Crow's Nest Coal Company,  and the managers of that company, no  doubt, Avill. in time,  direct its editors  what course to take on questions that  concern   the  public.    In  the. past,   its  editors have not been free agents.   The  Tribune is not now and never has been  subject, in the slightest degree, to outside   dictation.    No  line  has  ever  appeared in its editorial or news columns  against the wishes of its editors.    No  person.or corporation can say that they  are able to influence its editors to secure  the  publication  of   a   word   that  the editors are not AVilling to publish.  _Not"lT^voTd=is=insCTted^or=a"^vord='left!  out because of  outside dictation.    No  political   party,   and   no   organization,  either labor or church, has ever attempted to dictate the policy  of The Tribune, and none are likely to as long as it  is edited by its present editors.   Its editors may be opinionated but thoy are absolutely independent.   Tlie Tribune's independence may not be the brand used  in the Ledge editorial room, but it is  the only brand that has been on tap in  The Tribune oflice since November 24th,  1S02.    ��� ..^a.ijjiL  We sre daily In  receipt of fresh  photo supplies  ���films, printing  papers, plates,  chemicals, and  all developing  accessories.

Like property assessed for ?1200  in Nelson Avould pay $5.47 taxes. If  assessed for $G0O on land and $600 on  improvements the taxes would'be $0.45;  and if assessed for $1200 on land alone,  the taxes would only be $17.40.  The deal for the purchase of the iron  mines near Kitchener, Goat River mining division, West Kootonay district,  was closed yesterday by the payment of  $62,750 cash. This is the largest sum  ever paid in Kootenay for undeveloped  claims. The parties Avho paid trie money  are said to be interested in the Canadian Pacific railway, and tho parties  Avho received it are, in the main, residents of Nelson and Goat River mining  divisions. The payment of so large a  sum is evidence that there are men in  the East able and AVilling to take hold  of legitimate mining propositions in  Kootenay; that they are not in any way  influenced by Memorials of Mine Owners'  Associations or expressions of "blue-  ruin" newspapers.  The Rossland Miner, in commenting  on the visit to Rossland of the minister  of education, says: "Kootenay requires  " the fostering care of the legislature  " to a greater extent than does the  *' Coast." The "fostering care" that  Hossland Avants is unlimited appropriations. Nelson and Rossland both wanted new school buildings. Rossland  Avanted one that Avould cost not less  than $20,000, but Avould not contribute  a cent towards its cost. Tlie government raised its appropriation for the  Ono by one the political mining companies are being forced into liquidation,  and' the day is not far distant when the  managers of these companies "will be  following occupations that they Avere  cut out for. These companies only created distrust when in existence, and  whatever bad name British Columbia  may have as a mining country is largely  due to the false statements sent broadcast by their managers.

THE   PREMIER   DANSEUSE  A Story of Rivalry at Dog Rib.  There Avere seven dance halls in Dog  Rib the first season it became known to  fame as a gold producer,  and Razzle  Dazzle Dodo Avas the premiere danseuse  of the Temple of Terpsichore,  or,  as  the glittering sign  over  the  entrance  had it, "The Tempel of Terpsicore." The  Rev. Peter Stuyvesant Cook, known as  "Pulpit Pete'.' since his fall from grace  to the dens of Dog Rib, had strenuously  -opposed   this   spelling   and   consequent  pronunciation, but when a committee of  ' prominent  citizens   Avaited   on  him   to  announce   that   Dog   Rib   peremptorily  refused to use four syllables in pronoun-,  cing any word that could be more satisfactorily handled with three;  and that,  furthermore, be it resolved that it Avas  un-American to allow any foreign nation "to shove its style of spelling in  on free-born citizens of this great and  glorious republic," he had wisely withdrawn-his opposition and had drowned  his orthographic and ortheopic sorrows  in several flowing bowls.    So the sign  went up according to the dictates of the  conscience  of Dog Rib,  and   within a  month; Razzle Dazzle Dodo had tripped  on' fairy feet to the throne of the temple, and was its undisputed queen. Other  dancers there were in the temple, and  others  still  in  the other  halls  of  the  town, but Razzle Dazzle Dodo reigned  supreme on the stage and on the billboards,   exactin**:   tribute   from   friend  and foe, and booming the business  of  the. temple.  Who she had been, what mother she  had, what father, what brothers, or sisters, or husbands, did not concern-Dog  Rib, for Dog; Rib measured merit by  success/and she had .that to the limit.  \- She Avas a woman beyond the sunshine  of her '"twenties, still girlish and grace-  fur through all her 'years of dissipation, and fair to the eyes of those whose  ideas of feminine beauty coincided with  those of the bard of the Dog Rib, Avlio  had written a poem to her in crimson  ink, the first stanza of wliich was as  follows:      .--,'... -  "Here's a health to the red, red rose G  , That blows  In the cheeks of our goddess fair;  , And a glass o  To the mass  Of yellow gold  That gleams in her glorious hair."  In more prosaic language, Dodo was  of the less-refined type of beauty, us  gauged by cultured standards, and',her  manners and speech Avere in harmonious  unison Avith her personal appearance.  It Avas known that she Avas a product  ; of the West���the untamed and llocculent  West-���and Dog Rib honored her accordingly, as had other mining towns  where Dodo shone resplendent osfoie  Dog Rib's prominence, and they had  bestowed upon her the incandescent title  by. which she was then known; for when  she began her saltatorial march to conquest she had modestly entered her  name on the roster as "Dorothy Kelly."  As might have been expected of an  idol so generally worshiped, there Avere  _indiA*idualsTwho_lield^elosei7relation3liipi  to the divinity, and Avho might be classed as her hierarchy; and as might further be expected, these priests must  have a chief priest, and in this instance he Avas a gambler, Avho called  himself Jack Hazard. Whether that was  his real name, or one acquired by reason of the character of his profession,  Avas not definitely knoAvn, and Mr. Hazard Avas not a communicative person.  It Avas undoubted, hoAvever, that he easily stood first in the good graces of  Dodo, and Avhen he Avas in hard luck,  a condition not infrequently known to  all members of the fraternity.of chance,  it was Dodo who provided him with  funds, and helped him hold his head up  Avhen he had laid his hands down in-  successfully.  "You are a canary bird, you are," the  manager of the temple said to hei* one  day Avhen she had asked for fifty dollars  advance salary.  "Why? Because I am such a good  singer?" she twittered.  . "Aav, come off," responded tho disapproving manager. "It's because the cat  has got you.",  "What do you mean?" sho flushed,  angrily.  "Hazard. He's eatin' you, bones and  feathers," said the manager brutally,  and yet meaning well enough.  "Well, it's none of your business,"  she retorted, "and if you don't like it,  I'll quit your place.   See?"  "Sh���so, boss," soothed the manager,  fearing he might lose his star. "You  great artists are quick as powder to go  off at a touch. You can do- Avhat you  please Avith your money, but it maker,  me dead sore to see you wastin' it on  a bleeder that don't care any more for  you than he does for Dutch Kate, or Susan the Slipper, or the Duchess, or any  other of the half a dozen more I could  tell you of. Put that in your cigarette  and inhale it," and the manager handed  her over the fifty and watched to see  the effect of his good advice.  Dodo took the money and Avent out  of the office without a Avord. She knew  the manager Avas right; she knew the  chief priest of the idol had become idol,  and she Avas but a mere priestess, with  the hope, as every such priestess has,  that she might become chief, if not so  already.  But Avith the fifty dollars Dodo's spir-  Faid-up Capital,       -     -     -     $8,000,000  Reserve Fund.       -     -      -     -  $2,000,000  ACCRECATE RESOURCES OVER $85,000,000.  Hon. Geo.

"Good old Jack," she said to him���  she called him old, although he Avas not  yet forty���"it's a cold day Avhen Dodo is  froze out," and she twirled the bills before his eyes, pirouetting about him  mean while.  "Fifty to one on Dodo," laughed the  gambler, admiringly. "She's a winner  every time."  "If I could only win you, Jack," she  whispered, coming close to him, her  whole-manner changing.  "And you have for sure, Dodo," he  said, putting his arms around her after  he had safely deposited the money in  his vest pocket.  "Lee said you didn't care for me any  more than you did for a dozen other  women."  *'Oh, did he? Well, do you knoAV why?"  "Just because he likes to lie and tease  me, Jack?   Is that it?"  "Not all. Dodo."  "Is he telling the truth, Jack?" She  looked un at him as she held fast to  him. -  "Of course not," laughed Hazard, kissing her. "He Avants you himself,.Dodo.  He's dead gone on you."  Dodo laughed, but not all in derision.  The pride of conquest lives in every  woman's heart, and her unsought vic-  tories please her in her greater triumphs, as they soothe her in her moments of defeat.  "That's what he's gettin'-iip that song  and dance carnival for," Hazard went  on. "He wants to give you a chaiice  to clean out the town and sIioav you up  as the greatest dancer that ever come  this way. Some of these other dance  hall duffers think they've got prize trippers, but Leo's going to let them see  they ain't in sight, and you'll. be the  Nugget of the Gulch and the Temple  will be :No.' 1 DiscoA'ery. Then he's  going to ask you to marry him, and he's  got a notion you will. I'm on to his  rockers, and don't |you<forget it."  "I Avoukin't marry a thing like him  to save his 1 ife," Dodo said, hotly, as  she clung to Hazard, fearful that he.  might think she could be persuaded'  away from'him.  , "Cert,   you -..wouldn't,"-  assented' the  gambler;-"but he: don't know that."  "Well, I'll Ayin his five hunderd plunks  and show him what I think of him,"  Dodo laughed, and danced across the  floor in a nutter of excitement and defiance.  This carnival of song' and���: dance at  the Temple waso advertised to be the  greatest social and artistic event Dog  Rib had ever known. It was not only  the talk of the toAvn, but its. fame had  extended abroad, and the artists from  all the neighboring camps had notified  manager-Lee they would enter the lists,  while his Dog Rib rivals were making  every exertion to secure talent to represent their establishments, and, if possible, gain for them and their business  all that triumph at such an event would  mean.  Tavo days before the carnival Dog Rib  experienced a sensation in dance hall  circles. "A new dancer arrived and had  appeared at .'the Palace of Pure Gold  with immediate and pronounced sue-'  cess. The proprietor of the Palace of  Pure Gold had imported her for the  j!xj*jies_s=pjLirpos(*^of=wj n n i ng=tlie=gL*and=  prize at the carnival, and he did not  hesitate to state verbally and on his  glaring bill-boards that he had sent to  San Francisco for her, where she had  given up an engagement of a thousand  .dollars a Aveek to compete at the Dog  Rib carnival. The Palace of Pure Gold  was, after the Temple, the most gorgeous and popular resort in Dog Rib,  and its manager had already exchanged  shots Avith the manager of the Temple,  but friends had intervened to prevent  further hostilities.  Tho name of tho new arrival, as it  appeared on tho bill-boards of the Palace, Avas La Deda, which Dog Rib had  at once corrupted by placing the accent  on the last syllable, and the dancer Avas  given a high place in the favor of the  "Palace Plugs," as manager Lee politely designated tlie patrons of his rival.  Others felt the influence of the marvelous stories told of the Avonderful skill of  La Deda, and the betting, Avhich had  been five to ono on Dodo, fell off to  four to one, and the manager of the  Palace had been reported as offering I  even money on his entry, but he could  not be found to verify tlie rumor by  those avIio had money to risk.  The fifty dollars Dodo had so gleefully brought to Hazard had been  promptly dropped by that gentleman,  and ugly tales were in circulation concerning certain tricks of. his which are  always fatal to the good repute of those  of his calling, and when Dodo asked  manager Lee for another fifty, before  its predecessor Avas fairly cold, he had  manifested his displeasure and hearty  disapproval by cutting her request in  two. Hazard had not spoken kindly to  Dodo Avhen she reported a raise of only  twenty-five dollars, but half a loaf Avas  better than no bis.cuit at all, and he had  gone off angry, but taking with him  Dodo's tAvcnty-five dollars.  "Vou shall have more. Jack." she said  to him, pleadingly, "when I collar the  prize at the carnival. Think of 'it, old  boy. Five hundred good hard plunks.  Why, you can buck the whole shooting  match Avith that."  "Wait till you get it," he growled.  "The Lah de dah may be my banker  this time next week."  There was a mean smile on his face,  and the tears came to Dodo's eyes, but  she could not let him go with an angry  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M, LAY, Manager.  word on her lips, and she did not reply to his taunt.  That night Mr. Hazard was caught in  the act, and when the morning sun rose  over Dog Rib, flooding the narrow valley Avith an effulgence of purple and  amethyst, there Avas crape on his door.  It was Dodo who had put it there, and it  was Dodo who. had him taken to his  room after the smoke had cleared away  and the play had been decorously resumed. Otherwise it is barely possible  the street sweepers would have found  his remains obstructing the highway, for  Dog Rib Avas no respecter of persons of  his ilk.  The carnival Avas to occur that evening, and there Avas no time for funerals,  so the Hazard obsequies Avhich Avere to  be very simple for obvious reasons, were-  postponed until the following day. Dodo  was the only mourner, but she did not  permit her grief to interfere with business. ,       ,   .  "I'll swipe that five hundred or fracture a limb," she said softly to herself,  "and eood old Jack shall have the  grandest funeral this town ever saw,  bar none."  During the afternoon she went around  to the quarters of the deceased;1 and as  she entered the place the proprietor of  the boarding house told her there was  a lady in Mr. Hazard's room, and hastened to explain that he had let her in  "seein' that friends of the fam'lyhad  been respectively invited to attend, and  she said she was a friend."  Dodo hurried into the room, fearing  something," she knew^ not what, and  jealous even of the dead. Possibly, the  visitor Avas Dutch Kate, or Susan the  Slipper, or some one of the others of  whom the manager had spoken, and the  thought of.--.it sent the blood whirling  through her veins. As she opened the  door La Deda turned from the coffin  'to meet her. Dodo knew her���'from-.tiav-  ing seen her pnn the street.  "What are you doing here?" she greeted her, abruptly. V  "I beg your pardon," responded the  other woman, in a tone of refinement  and irony that nettled Dodo, "I had a  wild brother in the mines somewhere,  and: something I .had heard -led me to  think that he might.be.here."  "Well,"-asked. Dodo,  hard; and  cold,  resenting - any  intrusion,   "is   he   your  brother?"   '-������-..,..-  "I am glad to say he is not."   .  "Then get out of here, and get quick.  I'm   'tending  to   this   funeral   myself."'  Dodo Avas clinching her hands and patting her foot in the effort to suppress  'an outbreak.  "Oh," sneered La'Deda, showing not  the slightest intention of accepting the  invitation so directly given, "by what  right, may I ask, do you assume so  much?"  "Who's got a better right?" she an-  SAvered, defiantly. "I'm the only friend  he had."  "Merely a friend?" queried La Deda,  with cutting scorn.  Dodo Avas not prepared for a struggle of, this kind. She could talk with  any of them when she was angry, but  sorroAV overmastered anger in the presence of the dead,, and her eyes moistened.  "I���I���I loved him," she said, sloAvly,  with quivering lips.  iThe^other=w.oman!simanner=xChanged=a=  w  ft* 00- 00*00*00 '00* 00 ��� 00 '00 '00*00 -00-00  t^>. *t2�� ��� ^ 'J2** (>>,'  ^^^^^Ik^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ifi*.  fix  fix  fix  fix  fix  fix  ill  fix  Established in Nelson 1890.

"No, but he would have been after the  carnival. He promised to marry me  then."  "Oh, did he?" and La Deda grew  scornful again. "Well, he was my husband, and had been for more than ten  years."  Dodo looked straight into her face for  an instant.  "You are a liar!" she exclaimed, starting fiercely toward her.  "I think not," said La Deda, with a  smile, extending a package of papers.  "Read what is there."  The woman,was so firm and calm that  Dodo could only obey, and she took the  papers and opened them with nervous  lingers. One was a certificate of marriage dated a dozen years back; the  other was a letter, not a month old,  from the gambler asking his "dear wife"  for money. She knew the writing too  well to deny that the letter was from  Hazard, and she handed the package  back to its rightful owner in silence.  La Deda tore both certificate and letter  into pieces and tossed them aside.  "They are of no further value," she  said, with a harsh laugh. "The present  takes the place of the past, and the  question now is, what are you going to  do about it?" nodding toward the coffin.  Dodo gathered herself togetuer. There  were tears in her voice, but the presence  of the other woman gave her strength.  She stepped over to the side of the coffin  and laid her hand on the still hands  folded across the lifeless breast.  "I'm going to win that dance tonight,"  she said, "and blow every d���d cent of  the prize money on the biggest funeral  for good old Jack that this town ever  wont to.   That's what."  It was like a piece of acting, and La  Deda involuntarily clasped her hands.  The tears came to her eyes, such tears  as women weep at plays, perhaps, but  they were tears that softened the hard  lines in the woman's face.  "Razzle Dazzle," she said, "you're all  right. A man may destroy the faith  and the love of his wife, but it's different with his sweetheart. Good-by;  I'm going back to 'Frisco on the stage  that leaves here at G o'clock this evening."���W. J.

After   the   arrest  of  the  brokers  their office was  ransacked  and   an   immense   number   of   tickets   and  passes was found.  It is almost impossible  to place an estimate on  the value of the  tickets  recovered,  but it is  stated  by  the  railroad authorities that $50,00 would be a  conservative   figure.   .It   is   asserted   that  many  of  the  tickets  and  passes  aro  forgeries.

AV.  Stewart, the contractor who had the building of  the Procter extension.  The  Chinaman   claimed   that  the  carrots  were  purchased outright by  tho contractor and on  account of this ho sued for the sum of S2(i0.  The   contractor's   agent,   Donald   MeLeod,  had a very different story. 11 was that the  carrots   were   merely   stored   in   tho   root  house  for   the  convenience  of  the  Chinaman,   that  he  had  endeavored  to  effect a  sale  of them  on  the Chinaman's account,  and   that  lhe  Chinaman's story of a sale  of  Iho carrots  was  preposterous,  as  thirteen  tons would  be sufficient for tho construction of 150 miles of railway. Mr. Arc-  Lood admitted tlio using of a portion of the  carrots   by  Uro  contractor,   for  which  the  sum of S-lu had boon paid Into court. P. IS.  Wilson   appeared   for   the   Chinaman,   but  he  could  not mako  any  headway  for his  client against the evidence of MeLeod, and  the  case  was dismissed   with  costs.  As a  result of tho deal the Chinaman is now out  the amount wliich  was paid i**rto court as  well   as   the   carrots,   which   became   unmarketable by reason of his refusal to accept the contention  that they were In the  root houso merely as a convenience to him.

The property has been  undergoing steady development for the past year and  there is now  said to be sitflicierrl ere in sight in the property and  on  the dumps  to keep the mill  running to its full capacity for two years.  The   company  lias  played   in   rallier  good  luck   with   respect   to   the   securing  of  its  mill machinery in that the bulk of it was  secured   before  the  machinists'   strike  got  tilings into a  tangle on  the other side of  the   line,   and   the   water   motors,    whicli  wero  the last of  (ho outlit  to be shipped,  were on the last boat which the longshoremen permitted  to bo laden in  the port of  San   Francisco.   The   compressor   for   the  SPOKANE, August 15.���AVilliam Black-  man, labor commissioner for the state of  Washington, who arrived from Northport  last night after spending several days in  oloking over the strike at the smelter there  said to a representative of tiie Spokesnian-  Roview:  "I am fully convinced  that the smelting  corporation   is   working   to   reduce  wages.  For  that  reason   It   refuses  to  treat  with  the striking smeltcrmen. I think tlio company  plans  to drive  out  all  tlio  late em-  polyoes,  who In many eases own their little homos at Northport. My belief is that an  Inferior   class   of   laborers   will    then   be  brought  in,   who  will  bo  content  to 'work  for   less   wages.   Eventually   the   company  will run a company store, which will take  all    tho   trade   of   the   employees.   As   a  lirst step irr this direction the company has  already  built about ton  shacks and  -some  boarding  houses.   I  found   that  there  are  about 200 men working at the smelter. That  figure includes guards and the ollicc crow.  From what 1  learned, about two-thirds of  the .men who are imported refuse to stay  at   work.    I   was   courteously   received   by  manager Kadish bf the smelting company,  who showed  me over the works.  When   C  .proposed  to arbitrate the strike, however,  he told me that the company had nothing  to arbitrate. He asserted that the company  would   not   be   dictated   to   by   the   union,  and  he  put peculiar stress  on  the wages  and  hours,  which  he  said  were the most  favorable  to  workingmen  to  be  found  in  any  smelter  in   the  country.   He  declares,  that there wore about 20 agitators in  tho  union,   whom   his   company   would   never  consent to re-employ. So long as the union  demanded   their re-employment  thero was  no  chance of a settlement.  He said .with  tho exception of those 20 he was willing to  tako back all the strikers. I asked whether  Iho   strikers   could   retain   membership   in  tho union  on  returning  to  work  for him.  He evaded   the question and  said  he was  not in a position to give a positive answer.  I  saw   the  union  men  also and  talked  to  them  on  Tuesday night.  They claim  they  have ample support and mean to hold out  to the end.
