THE ESTIMATES.
The estimates of revenue ahd expenditure for the ensuing fiscal year were
presented to the Legislature hint week.
The total revenue anticipated, apart
friuu the lallaum of the $2,000,000 Inan
which is expected to lie on hand ou th-
901 b of June next—viz, $ii00,000 l-is
$1,1(13,780, while lhe proposed expenditure will lolul $1,872,078. The estimated Shortage next year is thus uvtir
$200,000.
AS examination of the estimates of
revenue will show some interesting
pa.'li.'iilai's willi regard lo what re*
twQf. are expected from the new as-
sesspieut act, The new mining lax, il
will seem, is expected to yield $75,000.
The incenses made by lhat hill are
put down as worth, ou income, $22,000;
personal property, $15,000, and real
property, $10,000, and if these llgures
are smaller than had been looked fur
it must he remembered that whatever
has hitherto been contributed liy mining property under these heads must
now he deducted, since the new milling tux hus taken tlie place of the
other assessments, Under the fuur
heads named, the assessment, bill will
provide $122,000 extra, Tlie greater
mining activity looked for is expected
to produce $10,000 additional for the
free ininers' certificates, and to make
Ihe general milling receipts $20,000
more than estimated fur the current
year, while for licenses $15,000 is ei-
pected. The timber royalties, though
the arrears huve all been paid up, aie
expected to give an additional $10,000.
Against all these increases llie only
conspicuous decrease is iu land sales,
including arrears, the .lill'e.vnce iu the
estimates for llie two years lieing
$80,0110. The absence of any estimate
of receipts arising out, of tlie proposed
sale.if laud warrants would seem to
Indicate Hull the much discussed bill
authorizing such sale, still standing on
lhe order paper, is not In be proceeded
with.

The Buie and Boston Company are*

bul so long as these lectures are only

The question is, lias the Government
by reducing Mr. Vernon's salary, (we
lake Ihieexample us characteristic of
the policy of Mr. Turner's administration) done wisely? Eiilini'the pust uf
Agefit-Geiirral is necessary or it is
not. If il, is necessary, then lhe person who undertakes the duties shuuld
he properly paid. Now $2,50(1 a year is
not a sufficient sum to ..liable a man
living in nn expensive city like London
to live as the representative of an ini*
portanlpiirt of Her Majesty's possessions should live. If the post is unnecessary, it should be abolished ullogelh-

" tain that if British Columbia requires
an Agent-General, she requires a man

The I. T. U.-Internatioual Typographical Union—is an original name

I as beneficial to the locator as the association has to its numerous members

[This is saying a guod deal.
McLaren Bros, are having a new addition huilt to their hotel, which when

Jcoinuiodation, but will onhance the ap-
Ipearance of their premises, and will be

lia beard te Mr, Melville, whom he was
lasalating in the erection of the new

Greenwood City and Anaconda are

built daily In both places and are com-
Ipletcd In an Incredibly short space of
(time.   New comers arrive every week,
_nd several families are camping near
(the towns in tents waiting their turn
■to obtain lumber from the mill in order
Tto build,  The 'mill, thougli working
[to its full capnclty, cannot al all keep
[pace with the demand,   The energetic
■anil enterprising efforts of the proprietors of the two townsli.es are deserving
[of all praise, and might, with profit l.e
■emulated by their rivals of older established towns.
The United States government can
Iglve pointers to the Canadian postal
[authorities as only a few weeks  have
■ elapsed since the opening of the Col*
I ville reservation, and already its ci' i-
fzens are to be provided wilh good mail
I facilities, and a post-office will bo open*
I ed within the next few days at Fourth
j of July creek, which will be known by
' the name of Nelson, and two mails a
i week will be carried between there nnd

authorities on this side of the line five
years te think over the matter before
granting such a concession,
Mr. R. Parraiij formerly of Rossland,

Mr. Leonard Vaughan is speedily recovering from his accident. About a
week ago Mr. Vaughan was kicked by
a horse in the face, and strange to say
although the blow fractured a portion
of the upper jaw containg four teeth,
not a scratch was visible on the outside of the face.
A splendid addition will 60on be added to Mr. L. A. Manley's hotel at
Grand Forks, and the material is now
upon the ground. Work will commence at once. The new building will
be 48x80 feet, two storeys, with a solid
stone foundation. When the building
is finished, Mr. Manley will have one
of the most commodious hotel in the
district.
If some of lhe high officiate of the
C.P.R, could witness Ihe amount of
freight that is being bandied by the S.
k N. R. R„ and distributed among the
Boundary creek mining camps, they
would turn green with envy, and commission a man without leggings to
place another consignment of giant
powder on their magnificent steamer
nnd pay hlni a little extra to touch it
off,
A judicial decision of much interest
and Importance wus delivered in Mid.
way by the Government representee
lust week. In the course of an argument between two individuals, one
gentleman informed the other that he
was a borrower of halters, My dear
sir, was the mild retort, you are certainly fabricating tn an absurd and
perilous degree. This was followed by
an exhibition of sparring, not under
Qiieensbury rules. The matter was
finally referred to the constable, the
gentleman who had been accused of
hoise-sedu-lion, wanting to institute
proceedings against his accuser tor
using libellous language. But he was
informed that he could not do so, as to
accuse a man of horse-stealing was not
an indictable offence, He left the
Government office, and went several
yards, then with deep-sounding prefixes, he called Heaven le witness that
Ihe constable was a horse-thief, and
son of a horse-thief; but not very
loudly, for the constable Is a powerful
man,

MINING  NOTES.
Mr, Brophy in now at Fairview expelling property,
Mr. J. Sholleld will begin the assessment work on the Crown Silver and
Sunset this week,
The diamond drill which the M. k B,
C, P, and P, company Is bringing in is
to he used first, it is understood, on the
Snowshoe.
Mr. F. Oliver of Spukane, tlin promoter of the Josie Co, is in lhe district j
at present, and il is understood the
company will put nine or leu men to
work at once ou thi. Morrison claim in
Deadwood camp, which they recenlly
acquired anil stocked.
Rapid headway is being made In tin.
development of the Lake View and
Norlh Star properties ia Long Luke
camp. So far a 60-foot tunnel lias been
run into the Luke View. Tin. leoge Is
widening and the ore looks richer.
It is reported that Mr. Chrlstio has
struck a fine body of ore in the Nightingale claim, Skylark camp. It is to
be hoped that it will turn out as well
as expected, as everyone would lie glad
to hear of good furl une coming lo Mr.
Christie, US the manner in which he
has worked since entiling to the camp
has excited tbe admiration of all who
know him.
The proprietors of the Stemwinder
at Fairview were agreeably surprised
lately to strike a pay streak in the
claim In a spot, where it was least expected. They had come, while cross-
cutting, to what they supposed was
the hanging wall. This, however, was
penetrated, when quartz carrying a
much higher 'percentage of gold than
in the original vein wns exposed. The
pny streak if three feet, wide.
The owners are carrying on development work on tbe Keystone claim,
Wellington camp, Mr. Rimberger,
who is part owner, is in charge of the
work.
Mr. J. Meyer has just pitched his
tent at Wellington camp, aad will
with other men, start to Work at once
on the Double Eagle claim, locate-! by
him last summer.
The report of a wonderfully rich find
.m Kruger mountain reached Midway
this week, A claim, which hasseveral
times been staked, and was in fact
owned by Mr. Kruger and named the
Snow Storm, was located by a prospector named Bowen recently. This
property appears to have suddenly
developed into a free gold proposition
of exceptional value, Large nuggets
have been taken out of the rock. Great
excitement now prevails in  the lo-
LiM^l
cality, several adjacent claims having
heen already staked, A rush will
probably follow.

The possibilities of the English lan-
gimge hn vi* frequently been taxed to
describe Ibe great America, game of
baseball, but for Striking illustration
this from the Qulncy, 111., Herald, has
rarely been equaled: " The glass-armed
toy soldiers of this town were fed to
the pigs yesterday l.y the cadaverous
-Indian grave robbers from Omaha.
The flabby, one-lunged Reubens who
represent the Gem Oily in the rush for
the baseball pennant had their shins
toas'ed by the hasilisked-i.yed cattle-
drivers from the West, They stood
around with gaping eye-balls like a
hen on a hot nnil, suffering Ihe grizzly
ynps from Omaha to run the buses
until Iheir necks were long wilh thirst.
Hickey bud more errors than Coin's
Financial school, and led the rheumatic procession to the morgue, The
Qullicys were lull of straw and scrap
Iron. They couldn't hit a brick wagon
will, n pickaxe, and ran bases like pallbearers at a fuueriil. K three-base bits
were growing on the buck of overy
man's neck lhey could teach them
with a feather duster, It looked as if
the Amalgamated Union of .South
American Hnodoos was iu session for
work in the 83rd degree.   The Geezers
. stood about nnd whistled for help, and
were so weak they coiildu's litl a glass
of beer if it lind been nil foam. Everything wns yellow, rocky lllld wang-
hnsl ed, like a sl ick tnssel full of doggie-
gammon. The game was whiskered
and frostbitten. The Oniahngs were
liad enough, fliut the Qiiiucy Brown
Hox had their tins sewed up until lhey
couldn't hold u crazy quilt unless it
was tied around their necks,"
THE ROSSLAND MINES,
A shaft is being sunk in the middle
•uf Main street in llosslniul. The Alice
claims lhe ground. This is the discovery that. Captain Carter niadc last
October and created so much excitement.
The Icon Mask now hns 200 tons of
■ore on lho dump which will run from
six In eight ounces in gold per ton. It,
also nun high in copper. Tlie ore on
ttiis dump is worth at. least $25,000.
A discovery of much Importance has
been made on the Josie ground. A
vein coming directly from Ibe Le Roi
has been uncov.wdjiu-t north of the
wagon road lending from Ihe Josie
dump. The outcrop of the vein has
been traced about 700 feet, on the Josie
ground and at one point has lieen
stripped for IK) feet, the average width
being S to 10 feet. Clean ore has been
exposed in some places and this is of
shipping quality.
Tbe Iron Horse, Enterprise and
Monte Christ... cliiinis were solil last
week to a Montana syndicate for
,1175,000.
A. D. Coplen, the original locator of
the Jiuiilin. who sold it eighteen
months ago to its present owners for
SI75, cairn, up from llie Ooeur D'Aleues
last Saturday to look after his Interests In this camp, On Wednesday he
visiled the Jumbo and gives his impression of that property us follows:
"I should judge lhey have crosscut
30 feet or more iii their tunnel. I understand lhat nut of the SO .':'et of ore
they now have opened up ulli nt half
will pay to ship. I must admit that
this is a greal surpiise to uio as they
are only about 100 feet underground,
aud I never could obtain an assay
much ahove a trace on Ibe surface.
Tbe Jumbo, I think, is going to ninke
one of lbe biggesl mines in the camp."
—Miner.
Ill 18I)t the output nf Rnssland's
mines wna about $126,000, In 1805 it
was neaiiy ten times that amount, An
estimate has hern mini? bused on ihe
smeller returns of nbout.00 per cent, of
the total output which was in round
figure. 25,000tous. In these ores Ihe
gold valued $1110,000, silver, $82,710,
and copper, 231,550, A total value of
$1,233,2110.
