The llrilisii government has hnd
unusual trouble in lilting lite vacancy

mentioned, hut no appointments have

The guud relations now existing between Great Britain unil America
make it Important Unit the new governor-general of Canada should he an
official of unique reputation, so as to
Impress ihe whole English-speaking
nice in America, The nppninlnient
has not been officially announced, but
It is generally believed at the war
ulliee Ibnl Lord Wolseley is the man
who has been selected fur Ibis ini-
purl nnl pusl.
Nothing has yet appeared in print
ulioiit It, bul II tuny bu stated in llle
utmost confidence thnt overtures have
been Hindi'to biin. The ctown is not
in the habit, of offering appointments
to high places until the willingness of
those proposed for preferment to accept
the honors is ascertained, There is
adequate reason tn believe lhat Lord
Wolseley has been approached and
uskeil wbelher be will accept the post
uf Governor-General of Canada, mid
ilmi he Is now considering the cxpedi-
ney of accepting it.
Lord Wolseley nnw occupies the of-
Ilea uf eouiiniiiiilei-ln-i'liief iif the army,

on each side nf the border, At the
snine time it would create a vacancy

Lord Wolseley is at once a soldier

Lord Wolseley is nnw III Ilis 00th

are strenuously endeavoring lo persuade someone, possessing more courage than discretion, io actus standard

As soon as nomination day is over,
the candidate selected bj the Opposition pnrly in this rilling Mr. James
Marlin of Rossland, will no diitibl take
lilt* opportunity of visiting tiii'ilill'cii nt

of June and the Dili day of July unly u
few days Intervene, therefore it may
not be possible fur Ur. Martin to he
come personally acquainted wilh each
elector. A lack of it personal acquaintance wilh the candidate need not, however, prevent those who have theii own,
and the interest nf the province nt
heart, from laboring in llu* goud
cause, which has fur its objeel tin* installation of a governing body, whieh
being given lbe reins of power, will

up of the province us a whole rather
than the liuililing up uf monopolies,
thereby enriching tbe few al lhe expense of many, a sysl  which bus
guined sn much ground during the

The Island is hrisl ling with Spanish

strengthening hlsdefences, His forces
are aeclinutled, a large purl of theui

Thul. fact bus lieen bruughtuttt sharply

The Crow's Nest Scandal.—The story
revealed by the report uf lbe ('row's
Nest Puss Railway commission is one
of the darkesl pages in recenl Canadian history, and it i.s well thai lhe
Commons has shown such unhesitating
determinnlinn lo sift lhe unsavory
scandal In lhe bottom, and bring home
guill to the right pui lies. Too often il
happens Ibal the real offenders escape
while the lesser culprits Buffer: for lhe
credit of Canada it is lo be sincerely
hoped thai in Ibis ease, which hns attracted such widespread nttenlion, lbe

in ihe revelations contained in tin*

A Portable Assay Furnace.
The following letter from San Diego,
Cal„ was published In a recent issue of
the New York Engineering uud Mining
Journals-
Permit ine to describe a portable assaying kit in whicli I lake n great deal
of comfort nnd which mny lie of service to others. A painter's gasuline
torch supplies the required bent, The
furnace is a circular iron cnn, lined
with a lire-clay—asbestos—charcoal
mixture, capable nf containing four
small crucibles. Tiie charge Jills the
crucibles, hut careful watching prevents boiling over. Recesses for a
small muffle are provided|lti thefurnace.
After the melts are poured the inutile
is placed in the furnace and heats very
quickly, After 'parting, the gold is
taken up in a boracic acid bead, in
which it melts together Into a practically perfect sphere. Using a microscope with cross-hairs and sliding stage,
the diameter of the prills of gold is
obtained, and frnni that the weight is
calculated, The accuracy depends upnu the power of tbe microscope, On
ores containing values up to $15 I tl
leet, differences nf 10 cents. As the
value nf the ore increases, the accuracy
decreases. Such an arrangement of
apparatus cnn lie very light nnd be
packed in a very small case. The
material is not nearly so expensive as
the smallest outtit ou the market. The
idea was obtained frum Mitchell "On
Assaying.
International Mining Congress.
A press despatch from Salt Lake City.
Utah, says '.—Ncnrly a thousand delegates have lieen appointed to utlend
the International Mining Congress
which meets in Ihis city on July 8th,
7th, 8t.lt and llth, This does not include
the delegations at large front Colorado,
Wyoming, California and seven other
states which have indicated their intention of being represented but have
not yet announced their appointments.
The delegates, of whose appointment
official notice has been receivd, come
from 21 different states nnd 188 cities.
Most of Ihem nre directly interested in
some branch of mining and all of llieni
are personally concerned lu the objects
of the congress. Besides these there
will be a strong attendance fioin Canada, official delegates from the government of Mexico and consular or
commercial representatives frum a
number of nther foreign governments
which have been invited through the
state department,
The objects nf the congress nre purely practical in eharacler. Political
subjects and discussions are out of
order in its sessions. It is intended to
promote the interests of all engaged in
mining pursuits, whether as investors,
managers or laborers, In aid of this
purpose, une nf its principal alms is to
secure the establishment of n national
department of mines with a cabinet
officer at its head. It will discuss the
desirability of revising and codifying
the mineral land laws; of opening the
Spanish land grunts to prospectors and
ininers; it will discuss the desirability
of mutual bonding privileges for mine
shipments and supplies belween Canadian and American points; it will
discuss problems of mine management,
ore treatment methods, relation of
railroads to mineral development and
a number of nther subjects of broad
general interest to miners. Every
branch of the industry will be repe-
sented among the delegates and every
legion of the country, sn the program
will luke the widest range possible
within practical limits,

A C. P. ti. survey party, wilh Engineer Rice In charge, was al wnrk
last Friday on I he Midway end of Ihe
Bnundiiry Oreek seelion nf the Rohson-
Pentictuti railway lino. It is unlikely
that any material change in the route
through the north-eastern corner of
the town will he mnde.
Last week's occasional showers refreshed the feed and crops very much,
-assisting growth and generally Improving the prospects—already good—
<if nu abundance of feed on tbe ranges,

driven on this vein from which ore is
being taken, Ou the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) currying galena

The "(I. A. II." has a 30-fool shaft

silvei'glance, Theflnest piecesof vvlresil-

On the "Big Lodge" is a 10-foot
quartz vein, mineralized wilh inm
pyrites. This vein hits been opened
up by cross-cuts ou the surface for 500
feet,    A narrower   vein   has  I n
opened up, being one foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, nnd
runs into tlie main ledge ns a spur, nn

In-lite same vein as that on the Big
