In the Amount Contributed to the

British Columbia mutters wero before the House of Commons on March
10 when tbe appropriations for tbe
province were discussed. In the
course of the proceedings it was shown
that British Columbia is now third in
tbe amount contributed to Ihe Doniinion revenues, but it comes fat- behind
lhat proportion in Ihe amount of
money expended within the province,
Sir Hibhert Tupper and W. A. (Jalliher
spoke on this point and in reply Hon.
Mr, Tune said to wait till next year.
Among the items voted were $25,000
for the Nelson postofflce, bringing the
total for lhat huilding up to $19,000,
and $12,000 for the Rnssiand building,
making a tolal of $44,050. There was
a total of $!H),700 for armories which
was made up of sums for repairs for
those already built and part for four
new ones, at Nelson, Revelstoke, Kaslo and Kamloops, No arrangements
have yet been made for one til. Rossland as that city bus uot provided a
site, which has been the usual pi active
in this province, though not through
out the rest of Canada, All these ar
inories are in Mr. (ialliher's distiici,
and in ilie discussion wliieh arqs9 he
look an active part.
He said: I made the request for
Ihem, and made it prelly strongly,
too. You must not forget thai the
district I represent, is nearly equal iu
area to the seittid part of tlie province
of Ontario. So, if I li-ive four armor
ies iu my district it does nnt necessarily
follow that tbey are very close together. We in British Columbia are in it
dilfeient position from the people of
Ontario; A great p.ut of our country
is mountainous and we require not
only armories and places where we
can drill Rummer nnd «inter,
I do not think that nny honorable
gentlemen who have been in British
Columbia will say that money spent in
armories in that province is not well
invested, We are pretty well in the
wilils, but we have a few citizens in
lhat province who like to have reason-
ahle accommodations as well as you in
the east. And Colonel Hughes, who is
a colonel in militia himself', well knows
that we sent from British Columbia to
the South African war quite a number
of men—probably a larger number in
proportion than any other part of
Canada.
Colonel Hughes : "And good men,
too,"
Mr. Galliher continued : And good
men, too, and wc want lo keep up uur
credit. When we have men enterprising enough to band tog.'ther we want
to encourage I hem to do so. I have
been associated with the mililia inysi If
for a number nf years, and 1 can speak
freely iu the matter, I know what is
necessary, and I agree withlhesiig
g. si ion thrown out by Mr. Beimel
(who had spoken earlier iu the debate)
lhat Ihey not only want a place in
which to store arms but a place to dri
in, and also a place in which in mint
for social intercom's?. A plare of tliis
latter kind is very taking in n western
city, because we have few places in
those little western towns where the
men can meet together to read the
newspapers and magazines and have a
little social chat after their drill.
Now, I am plensed indeed with Ihe
generosity of Mr, Tarte and Dr, Boiden
In giving us ii drill shed in that, community. True, we pay very heavily
into the Dominion treasury from the
province of Hritish Columbia, and we
feel thai, in the past we have not been
getting whal we are entitled to. I do
not know as 1 would go so far as to
say with one member from Hritish
Columbia that we arc still complaining.
Wi* say, however, thai in proportion
to the revenue we pay Inlothe federal
lieasury Ihe expend ll tire made by the
Dominion in that province is very
small. However, I have nothing to
complain of in connection wiih these
drill halls that are being established in
my district. I thank the minister fi r
meeting my request in tbis matter.
1 will say this, now while I am on
the subject, that in tho town of Nelson
Ihe special attention ot Mr. Tarte to
the fact, because I mean to approach
him again for more money in connection wilh Ihe Nelson drill hall. We
have given in tlie town of Nelson two
lots wilhiu the tire limits, and you all
know there is a law against building a
certain class of building within lhe
Hre limits, We have given two lots
worth four or live thousand dollars as
a free site lo Ihcgovrrninenlfnrndrill
hull. The hall cannot be built of wood
as I believe is the present Intention,
for the reason thai the city will not
permit It lo he built of wood. I um
merely throwing out the suggestion
so thai Mr. Tarle may be prepared tii
see me come to him again to ask for n
stun in the* supplement ary estimates
which will be sufficient to allow us lu
put. up such a building as the city bylaws will require within the tire limits.

HININO IN CANADA.
Will In Time be the Most Profitable
Industry.
That mining is forging ahead in Can
ada is evidenced by the large production of last year. From the way it is
growing it looks as though it would in
time he the most productive industry,
when all of ils branches are taken into
consideration, in the Dominion. A
recent compilation of the exports of
Canada for the liscal yenr 1900-1 shows
as follows, according to the official
method of classification : products of
Ibe mines, $-1(1,307,083; products or
fisheries,$10,720.251; products of forest,
$ii0,00S,8U7j animals and I heir products,
$55,4115,1111 | agricultural ' products,
$21,781,48(1; manufactures, $10,012,208
This reveals, as classified, that theex-
ports of animals and their products
alone exceeded that of the mines. Of
course animals and their products arc
tlie product of the farm as well as
agricultural products are, and when
these two are added ibey exceed con
siderably the exports of the output of
the mines.
Canada has immense mineral nrens
and there is every reason lo believe
when tbe country is opened up In a
larger extent by transporlalion facilities that the mines are veiy liable Ir
gain  the  ascendancy.    The eastern
imjirTm-'.le iviYAkt'lllltK til a ir^ognirlMtt
of the importance of lhe mining indus
try and are strongly agilating in favo.
of the formation by the Federal gov
ment of a mining bureau,
A Montreal exchange in speaking ot
this matter says that the extraordinary
growth of mining indicates ihe possi
bilities of national wealth that lie
beneath the surface, and lays upon the
vai ions governments in the Dominion
the duly of promoting, hy all rea.'ona
hie means, Ihe full development of
our mineral resources. The Federal
minister of the interior, Hon. Clifford
Sifton, is understood to be fully aliv<-
lo the necessities of lhe case. That he
will be able to do all thut the Mining
Institute requests, and secure the creation ofa department of mines, cannot
be said, but it may be expected lhai
Mr. Sifton will propo-e legislation the
aim of which will be to further, in n
more comprehensive ns well as more
concrete manner than is possible witli
the present departmental machinery,
the gient, mining interests of tbe
country, The geological survey is do
ing a splendid work, bul what appears
desirable, iu furtherance of Its efforts,
is provision for the investigation nf
problems of production and of market-
mg of our mineral resources, even as
in th" department of agriculture such
provision exists iu regard lo the products rrf the soil.

An Unprofitable Investment.
Some explanation of the recent,
clui ige« in the Rossland Miner was
given at the annual meeting of the
Le Roi Mining Co., which was held in
London, Kn'glnnd, a short time ngo.
The chairman, Mr. Hill, said :
"The next, point on which I wish lo
claim your attention is the payment nf
£2,001 17s Id made on account nf the
purchase, price of lhe Rossland Miner.

The Riverside is Situate About Four

It appears lhat, our manager entered
into an agreement for the purchase on I ow |,I1V(, |„,,.„ I,|,u-k<-ii out, nod assays
We announced last week that a deal
had been mude whereby the Riverside
group had been bonded. Full particulars since received show that a deal
involving the sale of two groups of
mineral claims, situate near Greenwood and Rock Cieek respectively,
had been closed. Tbe price has not
been made public, but it is generally
understood to be about $50,000 in all
and that a large cash payment has
already lieen made. The purchasers
are Stephen H. Jones and S. Ely of
Duluth, Minnesota, for themselves und
other capitalists with whom they are
associated in tills enterprise. The properties they have purchased are the Ar*

Tlu* new police commissioners for
the city of Oreenwonil have made a
beginning by ordering lhe closing up
of roulette wheels, which is certainly
ii. wise step, and will'prevent, many n
man in that city from spending his
nights in a vniniess effoit to increase
his capital. Roulette lo many is very
fascinating, nil hough the -chances for
winning are vastly in favor of Uie
dealer, No system hns yet been found
Whereby it is possiblo to break the

Hosslyn al tempted to break the bank

Kngland that lie had an infallible system mid only needed $50,000 io make
ii gii, People tumbled over each ol her
lo give him the money. He began by
playing with thousand franc notes,
iiiitll he finally got down to playing
live' franc pieces, there is no such
-thing as breaking Ihe Inuiknl Monte
Carlo nr beating roulette under auy
cirenui-Jiances, yel the game wherever
■Jiiirl.nl always findssuRlcientadmirers
to make it profitable for the owners of
the tables. A man who has lived at
Mnntc Carlo for years says lhat the
gambling houses paid returns as regularly ns dividends on Ihe New York
Central railway. A gentleman who
visited the place gives the following
account of the renowned gambling
place : •
"I suppose there are ten  roulette
tables, and each Iable is a bank with a
capital of $120,000.   lf you win ull ils
capital that particular table closes for
the day lo get a change of luck.   Thnt
is all the bank breaking there is.   You
would have to go through all Ihe other
tables — roulette,   rouge-et-noir  and
Irenle et-quarante—before   you   close
np the ennrern^and there are several
nf each.   They are a dismal looking
lot—the players.  I never saw one of
them smile, and the winners looked as
inisetahle as the losers.   Nobody get*
away with any money, no matter how
much he wins.   At least it is very rare,
I saw one man begin with a thousand
franc note—.$200.   He played and won
—doubled his money ; played and won
airaih, and again doubled.   He kept on
until he had won about $21,000.   Then
lie started resolutely lo go out.   Al
tbe door he slopped, hesitated and
turned back.   Ue sauntered over to
Ihe table, and looked on at th« game
fu; awhile.   Then he buttoned up hi,
coat ngai", with great decision, and
start d out. wilh a fi in stride.   But le
could  f)ot—positively could  not  get
through thu door,   The lost I saw of
lit-1* he was playing away again and
the $21,000 was ginng pelluu-ll   back
Into ihe gain'-ling bouse coffers,   I did
see one  man,  however! win and go
away wilh his tnou<*y,    lie was a very
rich man, as 1 happened lo know, and
just played for fun, not c icing whether
he won or unt.   He had astonishing
luck.   The same number came up five
tines in succession—an unusual thing.
It u.adea gieal sensanon in ihe mum,
and   people gathered ubout.   At the

Won about $0,000 in a very few moments."
bank on which they are drawn (except
cheques issues by the Depirtuunlsat
Ottawa) and cheques tint properly
endorsed will be iettirned at the postmaster's risk,
A cheque drawn on a bank which
has no branch hank in the city to
which the postmaster's remittances
are sent, is subject lo costs for cutler,
linn by the bank receiving tbe remit
tiinces, The costs foi collection are us
follows:
$ 1.00 lo $ 50.00 15c
51.00 to   100.00 Hoc
Over $100.00 Joflp.c.
To illustrate the last rate : The costs
on a cheque drawn for $120.00 would
he SOc, (arrived at. by dividing the
amount expiesscd in dollais, 120, by
four).
Tho costs nre not tn bc remitted to
the bank ; but the cheques are tobe
claimed for iheir fnce value—less the
costs for collection. For example a
cheque diawn for $100 00 shnuld be
claimed for $09.75 only.
Salary warrants, postage stumps and
postal notes should nol be remitted to
tho hunk.
The bank will not give the postmaster ciedit for any damaged,, punched
or mutilated coins which are contained
iu his remittances.
'Postmasters have l-heirown troubles,
and very often many of the little annoyances lo whicli they are subjected
are due to thoughtlessness on lhe pint
of the general public. Theie are many
rules set down to be observed by post*
musters that the public are not aware
of, and even when ihey areucquainted
with the cnndii ions continue lo neglect
Ihem, ihereby giving postmasters
much extra trouble that could easily
be avoided were a little more attention
paid lo what is known tu bc contrary
to the rules of the postofflce. The fol
lowing taken trom a circular issued by
the postal department recently shows
I'li'itily ihe exactness that is required
from a postmaster, and as will be oh-
served many of Ihe rules laid down for
his guidance are daily violated by those
obtaining money orders :
It having been brought to l.heatlen
tion of Ihe Department that remit
lanci-s on pnst office account mc fre
qiicntly received at the bank in such
condition us to necessitate a needless
amount of wnrk in verifying the different items, Post musters are requested

If American money Is remitted In

tiouulr
The fact that tho charter of the
Tontine Saving Assi elation has been
revoked and a receiver appointed lo
wind up the affairs, owing lo the
fraudulent methods adopted in doing
business1, is hut another example of
how readily the public will put money
into almost uny scheme that claims lo
give iu return a sum that is fabulous
and fur in excess of lhe earning power
of money. The Tontine Savings Asso
elation commenced husiness in Ihe
state of Minnesota about six years
ago, and now lhe company has fine
offices in Spokane, Seattle, Tacoma,
Wallace, Wilbur, Davenport, What
com and Portland on the American
side and in Victoria, Vancouver and
Rossland on this side of lbe line'.
The company has heen having a
good deal of trouble during the pasl
year, and some months ago the postal
nut borities debarred it from the use of
the mails on lbe ground that itwas
doing a fraudulent business. Its
methods are interesting. It under-
'akes to pay hack $100 in cash, or a
diamond ring worih $200, in return for
payments of $80 made by lhe custom
er. Thus he doubles his money. The
customer pjiys £5 down for his contract and then pays $1.25 a week for
00 weeks, The company has no assets,
and it has no income from any source
except the payments made by patrons.
There ij no reserve fund and tin revenue from ioieiesl, Tho oouipiwy
claims that it is able to pay 2 fori
through the lapses of slockholdeir
who forfeit iheir rights by failing lo
pay promptly. The greatest amount
thai can ne paid on a contract in one
month is $5. That is io prevent larger
payments which reduce the likelihood
of lapses.
Oul of the $1.25 which is paid weekly
Ihe company is supposed to keep 25
cents for operating expenses. The
rest of the money is kept in a pool and
matured contrncts are paid uut nf it.
in accordance with the order when
they were issued.
Tlie Minneapolis Times quotes Attor
ney General Douglas of Minnesota
with charging : "It is staled thai the
association has misled llm public by
usiug the wold 'Savings' in its title.
That il collected in 1001 over $800,000
from holders of thediamnnd contracts,
of which amount $358,000 was appropriated by the officers und directors
and employees of the association, although the lotal amount had been
paid in fur purposes of, paying off ma
tmed contracts,"
The association claims that no court
can prevent anyone from selling din-
mnnds on Ihu   instalment plan  and
then buying them back from the pur
chasers, which is practically' whal, the
association is doing,   Such may be the
case, but the association could not pos
sihly curry on ils business were it nol
that a siilllch nf number after paying
into Ihu association for some time fall
i d to meet their payments and allowed
their agreements to be cancelled.   If
there were enough of this class Ihe
association could meet the demands
that would be made upon il by those
currying out Iheir agreements to maturity.   Hut it is questionable if it is
nol a fraudulent piuctice to conduct
auy Institution on such a basis, and it
is cettninly fortunate fur the majority
of its policy holders as well us for the
protection of the public that the stale
hus interfered and taken steps to wind
up the Tontine Savings Association.
This instance should  ho a lesson to
those who,  instead of putting  their
money into a legitimate investment
where a fair profit is assured, prefer to
put it into some wildcat scheme where
it is impossible to obtain tlie results
promised.   Money has only a certain
earning power and people should he-
ware of any company l hat offers two
dojlars for one on a.few weeks' investment. -

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be nowbeing built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, itis an
investment.

Ping-Pong: A Soliloquy.
(By a Modern Hamlet,)
To ping or not lo pong i that is the
question ;
Whether 'tis nohlerfor n man to suffer
The hangs and buffets of lh'outrageous
fashion,
Or to join issue 'gainst the multitude
And hy protesting end them ? To play
or not to play
No more ; and liy a Hrm refusal end
The headache and the thou..md monstrous shocks
The game is heir to.   To play or not l
To play j perchance le hit; Hye, there's
the fill-;
For in that precious sport what knocks
may come
When once we fare the hall of celluloid
Musl give us pain-e.   Oh I who would
racquets hear ?
To grunt and sweat under n dining
table
In search nf that confounded bouncing
ball,
Whose   undiscovered   resting place;
alas 1
No man can find, provokes bad words,
Then  rather should   we  play those
games we have
Than Hy to olhers that we know not of.

in KKK), increasing its production from
0.000,000 up lo 30,000,000 pounds, Important mines are being opened in
