MONDAY. FEBKUAHY5. 1000.
No id-finite Infnriniitlon luis yet lieen

touiii'tU ihe fund noiv known ns the
Patriotic Fund. We lust, week beard,

fnvi nu hi., coiniiienl upon the persistent
omission of ihose responsible for it
to publish it statement of the aniounl
Collected—sniiill though it he—nnd to
whom it whs remitted, Some of the
I'linlrilinlois, whilst not imputing any
irregularity in ihis 00 iinnii 11, resenl
thii secrecy of the self-appointed custodians uf these moneys. (Jontrlliutrtrs
have lhe right .to a, public accounting
and it -ihniild tint he necessary I
insist tbat it In* made,
Mr. Higgins, M, P. I'., has asked in
the Provincial Leglsloluie "Thai, an
order of lhe House lie granted for a return of all correspondence between the
Government, or nny member or officer
thereof and any parly or parlies 1 evident in the District, of North Victoria
relative In the n diiclini) of wages of
wiirkmen employed on the roads of
lhat district from $2.(10 to .$1.75 per dny.
and an increase of 1 he hours of labor
from nine to len hours perday." Surely Ihe Government responsible for legislation that prevents mine-owners
from obtaining more lhan eight hums'
labor per day frntn muckers who insist upon a wage of $3. p r day, is not
compelling its own laborers in mini her
part of ihe Province to accept $1.75
for a day of len hours.
Iu another column in this is-ite is
published some InforniHti'in relating
to mining properties in lhe Toruda
District which lies south nf Midway,
in the neighboring stile of Washington. In directing ibe intention of
those inteiested in Midway ur likely to
lie, lo the sl.iteiii"Ui Hut ''All Ihe
propuiiies are froni -ix 1021 miles from
Midway on the 0. I'. it., with a good
wagon r.i'id all Ihe way," It may he
pointed mil. that ibis is unsolicited and
entirely disinterested testimony in support of .Midway's claim to he the nearest railway town in several of the leading mining camp- of Northern Washington, some of which ure, liy lhe way,
alieady moving in the direction of
making the town their railway point
fur holh their inward and outward
fieighl,
specify nf even a Western mining
town. The Greenwood "Miner" last
j week, however, took a stand which,
I though only what was expected from
[ itas consistent wilh lis record of clean
[journalism, must commend itself to
I those who, leaving out of sight con
I sldernlIn/is of profit to certain iuieres-
I led individuals, discriminate between
I liberty and license, Said the "Miner"
"The nhjecl Ion to such places, how
, ever, is not the sale of beer in the audi
ence, but lo 'box rustling,' and lhe
presence of women, whoare ically lower, in some cases, in the moral scale
than the regular ha hi lues nf houses <>f
Ill-fame, Tlieiuiluencenf such conditions must, be pernicious, lei people say
whal. ihey will; and if the success of a
I heal re depend 011 such conditions
l.beu the Ihealte should fail." We
think fiom our own observation thai
tbis objection appeals tn he well taken,
and Ibal Ibe moral atmosphere of Ihe
Albumin 11 dues not compare favorably
wiih say Ihal of the International in
liossland, as we saw il, We agree
Willi the"Mi.ier"ihai "it is an insult tu
millers aud prospectors as a class to
say lhat thev will not he satiolied
with anything less lhan performances
which smack of lewdness, and are
coaisely suggestive; and which are
supplemented by box seances" On
the contrary we, too, believe that the
great majority of miners can aud do
enjoy a good, wholesome song, or a
clean comedy, nr melodrama, as well
as any other port ion of the community.
MININU NOTES.
The Cas"iide "Record" claims that
"Cascade has no bonded indebtedness
nu nn expensive municipal government to support." Midway is in a
similarly favoiahle position. Incur-
"juration would at present involve for
thi. Inwn 111.' expenditure of loo large
a pi upon ion nf the revenue, available
within reasonable limits nf taxation,
in salaries and other administrative
charges, Incorporation is unl desirable merely for th-1 sake of giving a
few self-interested individuals place or
pay,    I.nler, when the town shall have

Ihere are two kinds of naval guns of
vhicli we have been hearing much of
late, the 12 poundtir aud 4.7. In the
trials of these guns nt extreme elevation the 12 pounder shell went 11,(01
yards and the 1.7-in. (Lyddite) projectile 12,1X10 yai-Js.
The naval 12 pounders differ from
the field-service pattern. They are
lung and heavy guns, which on shipboard ate fixed on a pivot carriage and
fitted witli 11 steel shield. The 4.7 in.
