Bill is going in for stock-raising on a  large scale, and,in the course of a few  years expects to hafr'e the best ranch in  Kootenay. He realizes the disadvantages under which he is by reason of  being practically alone in the Sheep  creek section, and if he is forced into it  he says he will go into the colonization  business so that he will have enough  residents to pass resolutiohs andV^sigri  petitions.

N. P.* Coal Co. nine days he paid  them $2.10: In\ fact, to pay these backhands their proper days' compensation  he. started on com pany work in preference to digging coal.  ���Taking 73 of the Fernie miner's due  bills for January, after smithing and  blasting expenses are deducted, we find  that'll men earn $100 and over, 22 earn  ��� under $100 and over $75, 14 earn under  $75 and over $60, 25 earn under $60;  The trouble with the buttying system  is.that under, that system the company  do not pay enough to give the miner a  good wage and allow him to pay a helper as he should be paid. It; forces the  helper to work for a lower wage than  the gerieralrate of the country. In all  the West the government price for outside labor is $2.50; and in <fuartz mines  the muckers get $3" per day, yet these  men.are expected to work in the hazardous calling of coal mining for $2.50  when they are working for a miner, and  for $2.25 when they are working as helpers for the company at Michel.

Nelson  on Wednesday last,. after; spending  about two months in a trip to Honolulu, much improved in health. He  had a very pleasant time, enjoying the  sea bathing and surf boat riding daily.  The weather was supposed to be cold,  the average being about 70�� during the  day and occasionally getting to between  50�� and 60�� at night. Mosquitos were  probably as industrious as any on-the  Kootenay reclamation works in the  height of summer, and mosquito netting was always in use. Mr. Sherwood  travelled via San Francisco both ways,  and on the outward voyage on the new  steamer Korea made the record passage  between Honolulu and San Francisco.

Alderman-elect  Gilker is therefore the choice of a large  proportion of the people of the East  ward for the position he holds, and all  he has to do as alderman is to carry out  the policy of the party who elected him.  It is how up to mayor Rose and aldermen Gilker,-Irving, and Kirkpatriek to  carry on the business of the city of Nelson in accordance with the views of the  majority of the. people "of Nelson, and  not in accordance withythe wishes of  tne minority, represented in the council by aldermen Bird, Hamilton, and  Selous.

The best way  is to save until a modest start can be  made on the house that is to be.   The  other way is to go in soak to the Christian Scientists who operate building and  loan associations,   and  contract one's  self  into   paying a  rent's  equivalent  under a 15 per cent  interest  clause.  Nelson is full of people who have learned the truth of the proverb that he who  goes, a-borrowing    goes    a-sorrowing.  Fully half the dwellings in   the   city  were   built   with   building  association  money.   A few of the earlier loans have  been retired, and the men who made  them are congratulating themselves on  getting out with a whole skin,  but the  great army of borrowers are still wishing their lives away in  the hope that  the day will dawn when they will own  their own home without the loan  company owning them.   Very few people  have any idea of the drain  which  the  interest upon   and   the repayment of  these loans make upon the financial re-  ��� There^are two strikes in  progress "in  the province.   The one has crippled tlie  industrial interests of the southern port  tion, and the other may yet cripple the  transportation.   As a result, organized  labor will be more or less bitterly de?  hounced by those'whose interests air��  adversely affected,-but who give tje?  causes    for   the   trouble \ very   littler  thought.   The  strike' at Fernie   arid  through the coalfield is the result of  manager Tonkin's efforts to,- int_*oducjfr  into British Cblumbia-the^despotism pfv  the coal barons of. Pennsyl^hia, undifj  which i>he workers in the mines become  the chattels of the company* for whom  they toil.   The second strike comes of  a little official impersonating the great-  ���estraiiwayon'earthTanTl^ttemptihglp  hurl its great strength' against a new  organization  by   means of   which the  most wretchedly paid  class of .men in  the railway company's employ hope to  secure a living wage.   The prospect for  a settlement in each instance is good.  An arbitration committee is at Fernie,-  with a fair chance of ad justing matters;  and it is not unlikely that the management of the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company  will   think   twice before it  starts upon the job of making good the  idle threat of its official who stated the  company would spend one million dollars in order to crush  the little organization of the freight-handlers.  With a careful study of dramatic  effect, manager Tonkin of the Crow's  Nest Coal Company has agreed to accept the good offices of the committee  of the Provincial Mining Association in  the effort to settle the coal miners'  strike. There is a story in Fernie that  manager Tonkin did not require to go  to Victoria in order to open up, negotiations for a settlement of the differences  which have cropped up between himself and the men in his employ. . There  is an element of truth in the story of  the coal" company's" officials "that the  men have not fully presented their case  to the company, but the men say there  are difficulties in the way. when the  manager gets out of town when possible and .over the back fence when necessary, in order to avoid meeting the  strikers' committee.  , The' Mugwump business element in  Nelson who wouldn't vote for James A.

The "novel with a purpose" is rarely  met with in modern fiction, for, strang-  " ely enough, there exists nowadays a  popular prejudice against such works,  yet some our greetest reformers have  been novelists, who have effected reforms by their hooks. The chief of  them was, of course, Charles Reade,  and it is a striking fact that his four  most successful novels were written  .solely with the idea of" educating the  people into a proper frame of mind as  to four "crying-shames'*' and in each  case he was successful to a remarkable  degree.  J t will readily be understood that any  wide-sweeping reform needs the support  of popular opinion j and "It is Never too  Late to Mend" not only suggested the  ��� reforms of which our prison svstem  was needed, but educated the people to  appreciate how immediate and essential  was the need.  Charles Reade wrote with such-a convincing pen that no one could peruse  that famous story and doubt that much  of it which dealt with prison life* was  founded upon fact; that Hawes was a  type of prison governor (he was indeed,  an actual person) at whose merciless  hands our convictts suffered as no law  in the land prescril>ed they should.  The book appealed to the heart and  stirred the soul as no number of newspaper editorials could have done.   The  subject* was   not   newj   it  had   been  .brought up. again and again in Press  and Parliament, but it had never com-  ,    manded popular interest until Charles*  Reade  took it in. hand..   The  people  read for amusement and were taught a  "    horrible truth, and it came to thejn so  .convincingly  that they, whose apathy  had  precluded  proper-reform,  rose at  once and demanded it. t  In "Hard Cash," probably the most  - dramatic novel ever written, the author-  reformer'attacked another very grave  state of things; it struck a terrific blow  .at private lunatic asylums, which at'  that time were not only to a great, ex-,  terit'free from state control, but were  often- used as private prisons for perfectly sane people. "Hard Cash" drew  public attention to the way in. 'which  some of these ,places were conducted,  and demonstrated two truths which  alarmed everyone because they menaced  everyone; that'-not only could a "sane  person.be incarcerated in van asylum,  but once there .stood small chance of  ever being able bo prove hisCsariity.  I   The fact that" it was possible for sober  citizens tocbe immured for life in prisons  -. ..where^-theyr .were -7at^the_mercy - of ���un-  qualified keepers and nurses who might*  slowly do them to .death, or driver; them  by sheer brutality to the, uiadhess ^with  ". "which they were alleged to he "afflicted,  .__/���: awoke   the   riation^'up "with  a start;  andpParliament was compelled.to . look  infco/the matter and "frame laws -for the  -..-"-proper control "and' supervision of such  ^establishments.   The"^abuses of trade-  unionism  were - attacked ' by   Charles  Reade in " Put'Yourself,in-Hi_* Place?'  in'.writing   which   the   author   drew  .-   largely upon, actual occurrences. Trade-  ���     unionism was at the, time of the-publica-  tion  of, this novel simply a system of  .tyrannical    selfishness    and     narrow-  -mindedhess, .which threatened to, ruin  ,-    British   commerce.   /.The    book....was  written in s,uch a way that it .appealed  to every 'man* and  woman  who could  read.   -Employers  and  employed read  - - it, and, were cqnvinced of the justice of  the arguments,': so' entertainingly, ad-  * vanced-and   so skilfully^eloaked- that  there was nothing;canting in the .book.  .  - As a"direct consequence of this story  trade-unionism. ...was  taken in hand by,  ' tlie Press,  the .'public, and at last lnr  - -Parliament,    and changed   what   had  been a tyrannical  power into a system  of really useful protection -for labour.  "Fool Play" was less than any of the   other���three-books-mentioned���a-novel  with a purpose..  Its chief aim  was to  entertain. ��� But incidentally it aimed'a"  - blow at ship-scuttling for the purpose of  robbing Lloyd's���a species of crime  very common and profitable about' the  time this work was first published. It  led to some important, reforms in ship-  broKing, which practically put an end  to an alarming state of affairs, up to  that time either unknown or unappreciated; \T"  A world.-rengfyii.ed case of reform by  fiction was 'the 'effect of "Uncle Tom's  * Cabin." It was this famous story which  s tar ted the great anti-slavery mo vemen t  by the Northern States of America  against the Southern States, which had  the consequence of some million slaves  beirfg freed.  ^  7  Mrs. Stowe little dreamt, however,  that her work would provoke" such a  terrific conflict, or she would have cpn-  sigrieid it to the fire rather "than to '������i.th<5"  printerst hands;: indeed^ she scarcely  thought that it would have more than  slight;moral effect: But no" work: of  fiction ever had such :-a-Ayide-spreading  influence as 'HJncle Tom's.G^  Dickens   and   Thackerajf   both alsa  -effected important - reforms7 by their  novels. Thelatter.was ^instrumental iir  putting an. end to public "executions, by  demonstrating in one of his best-drawn  characters 7 their brutalizing influence  over morbid -minded people. And,  extraordinary though, it may seem,  there is- no doubt....that7in. promoting  this reform Thackeray deterred many  fromxrime, for in the days of public  executions it was considered rather  dignifying to die in the hangman's  hands���that is, of course, by vulgar  people. The extreme penalty was not  then, as now, a mere end to life, but it  had the glamour of public martyrdom,  which in the vain���and vanity is an  offshoot of ,criminality ��� reduced the  horror otit Xo a great degree.  By ",01iver Twist ' Dickens did much  to promote reforms in the administration of workhouses. He evidenced the  many weak^po^nts of the Poor Laws as  they then stood, and stirred up public  feeling against the state of things which  condemned the poor to very much the  same sort of life that the convicted  criminal led.  "Nicholas Nickleby," too, had considerable effect in reforming many  private schools by suggesting to parents  the greater care they should exercise in  selecting schools for their sons.  ���� _ : . &��  NOTICE  TS hereby given that applica tion will be made  x   to the Legislative Assembly of the Province  of British Columbia at itt> next session for an  Act to incorporate 'the Synod of the Diocese of  Kootenay, comprised as follows:   Commencing  at a point on'the forty-ninth parallel, part of  the international boundary line between Canada and the United States/where the said par  allel intersects the one hundred and twentieth  meridian; thence northerly along theone hundred and twentieth meridian to that point of  the same at which it becomes part of the eastern  boundary line- of the Province of British Columbia; thence south-easterly and along the  boundary line between the said  Province of  British Columbia and the Northwest Territories, until such last mentioned boundary line  intersects the said fbrtv-nihth parallel: thence  westerly along the^said forty-ninth-parallel to  the point of commencement; and that .he-following powers be granted, viz:   The bishop,  clergy and laity of "the said Diocese constitute  a body politic and.corporate under the name of  the Synod of. the Diocese of  Kootenay".

NELSON NEV/S NOTES.  The election is over, and the people  want to see work commenced on the  Kootenay river power station. So far,  the city council have not acted as if  they were in earnest.  A portion of the crew at the Athabasca-Venus property was laid off this  week. The men who came down the  hill were for the most part engaged in  outside work, which has been com  pleted.  Mike Egan has made what may prove  to be a very important strike on^Bird  Creek. It consists of a fine showing of  quartz which appears to' carry, good  values. The strike was made a short  distance from the Alexander property.  That great wabbler, alderman Hamilton, did some more wabbling during  the week. After promising to ^support  captain McMorris * for " city clerk, be  wabbled-up to the city, hall and told  the captain he would have to withdraw  his support. ,,  ' D. Wilson, inspector of schools, returned *& Nelson' on Thursday- from  "TCast Kootenay. Owing to, the strike,  business in Fernie and other towns on  the Crow's Nest Railway is .quiet, but  the general feeling seems to'be that the  strike will not be of long duration, and  that the boom in timber and general  improvement- expected in mining,-it  lead continues to advance, will result"  in a* prosperous summer, v '    .-���*>'  "VV.
