Quality and Price.
While W. T. Shatford & Co. are noted for the quality and
price of the goods sold by them. PROSPECTORS and
MINERS operating in the Similkameen and surrounding
mining carrps, would do well to outfit at one of our stores,
where everything is kept that i.s needed inthe mining busines*;.
Instead of buying outside, buy right at home, and so save
money, and this more particularly refers to prospectors going
into the district above referred to.

Latest Revelations.
The most recent and sensational disclosures in the Dreyfus case are those
made through the mid ium ofa L union
dispatch dated the 3rd inst. which says
that the Loudon Daily Chroniclt of
that date made the statement that on
the evening previous, Major Comte
Ferdinand Walsin Esterbazy called at
its office,wit)] a confidential friend and
made the following statement:
"The chiefs uf the army have disgracefully abandoned me. My cup is
full and 1 shall speak out. Yes (raising his voice and glaring around), it
was I whu wrote the bordereau, under
orders."
Esterbazy. the Chronicle says, then
proceeded, to explain that for months
liefore 18S8 moral proofs hud been obtained of leakages wbich were only
possible through an oflice belonging
to the ministry of war and it is not
necessary to catch the guilty party by
material evidence. Hence the bordereau, When asked what Ibe chiefs
of the French general staff would say
to this confession, Esterbazy shrugging his shoulders said .-
•'They will lie as they know how to
lie, but I have them tight and I have
proofs that they know the whole thing
and share the responsibility with uie
and I will produce the proofs."
It is said the French government is
about to start proceedings to get Ester-
hazy extradited,

The Verdict.
It will be remembered that recently
tbe skip at the War Eagle mine at
Rossland, owing to a defect in the
hoisting machinery, dropped some live
or six hundred feet down the shaft,
and as a result thiee men lost their
lives, and another was seriously injured.
Strange to say. viewed ill the light
of recent experiences in this district, a
coroner's inquest  Was held  and,  although no one was accounted guilty of'
j criminal negligence yet at the same
I time the jury failed not to censure lhe
i management, and did so in the follow-
i ing limling :
Ist. We hind that the deceased
! came to tbeir death by the skip falling
! to the bottom of the shaft, which was
( caused by the slipping of a bolt out of
! its position, and that the machinery
• iu question was defective, inasmuch as
■ safety pins should have been inserted
I io all tbe bolts to protect the nuts of
I said bolts.
2nd. In view of the fact that certain
i defects look place previous to I the
present accident we are of the opinion
that men should not have been per*
milled to ride on the skip unlil such
time that >-he machinery was perfected
beyond a reasonable doubt.
4rd. We are also of the opinion that
a daily report should be made by the
engineer iu chief as to .the working
order of the machinery, and that this
rule should be .strictly enforced.
ith. We would also strongly recommend that a certified mechanical and
electrical engineer should lie appointed
to examine all mining machinery in
operation.
6th. We would further recommend
that the government should appoint
severe 1 mining inspectors, as iu our
opinion the duties imposed upon the
present one are greater than he cau
perform with satisfaction, and it is further recommended that a resident inspector should be appointed at least
for this important mining section.
Oth.   That the practice of employing
uncertified    engineers   for technical
positions of rcsponsiliily in the mines
, of this province, wliieh haa heretofore
prevailed, is to be condemned, nnd that

Excessive Heat.
A Xew York dispatch, dated the 6th
of June, offered tbe intelligence that at
that dale excessive Ileal was being experienced in that city,as the record of
the hottest day in Xew York since the
establishment of the weather bureau
was reached,    From early morning,
when the thermometer stood around
78, until  late in  the afternoon,  the
mercury wentsteiulilyup.   At 3 o'clock
it reached the limit, 98.   On only two
June days in the past 12 years has the
temperature reached  t" at mark.   In
I8SS and also in 1893 the maximum for
June was 08,    The    record at the
weather bureau was IIS degrees, and ;
the atmosphere was terribly oppress-!
ive.   The opening of the hot season
with the record-breaking temperature
was accompanied by a unusual number
of prostrations for this time of   tbe i
year.   In New York city and severalI
of the  nearby towns  there were 311
prostsations recorded.   Twenty three I
of these occurred in New York city.     |

Field for Prospecting.
Major 11.0.Edwards Leckie, recently |
returned tr Hossland from a trip to the i
Smilkameen, having gone into that
country by wny of Kamloops and
Nicola. Giving his impression of the
country through which he travelled,he
stated that he was impressed with the
possibilities of the country from a
mineral standpoint, as he believed
the country between Kamloops nnd
Princeton on the Similkameen, v\ould
be found to be rich in copper. Very
little thorough prospecting had been
dune SO far, therefore this should lie a
splendid Held for the prospector looking for new territory.
As an easy field   to prospect   it is
ipi.sliotiiible if any other portion of j
the province offers such advantages, as  lu future the strictest rules should lie
nforced, and that if the present min*
the country consists of rolling bunch
grass hills, With ideal camping spots,
plenty of wood, water and grass being
found everywhere in thai section.
ing act Ik- unsufficient for this purpose
it be amended at the next meeting of
the legislature,

Dominion Government's Action.
The News Advertiser tho organ most
consideration nf om- legislators, is thai
ofjinoroasing the nutntfei- of mine inspectors in the province. At present
there Is only one sueli official for Lite
whole of British Oolumhia, and In a
coiiiifry of siieh vtist extent, and where
the mining centers are so far apart, It
is Impossible for one offloial, be he
ever so Willing and competent; to do
justice to the work which is assigned
to him.
This is readily recognised, hy the
leading mining ineu of the province, as
also by others, and at the Inquest held
recently at liossland, upon the unfortunate men who met their death in
the War Bogle Mine, the coroner's
jury gave expression to the view
enunciated ahove, when in one portion
of Iheir verdict thoy said :
"We would further recommend that
the government should nppointsevemJ
mining inspectors, -in in our opinion
the duties imposed upon the present
onejare greater than be can perform
with satisfaction, and it is fitrther
reoommended that a resident inspector
should In- appointed at least foi-.,.thi.s
important mining section."
It is in the latter} part Of this
. recommendation we believe the crucial
point in the matter is reached, when it
is recommended that an inspector be
appointed for the liossland district'
only we would carry it further and say
that a l-e-iduiit inspector should he appointed for each and every important
inini-jgdistricfcthrougbontthe country,
This might mean the appointment of
five or six officials and an increased cx-
p.--niliture of some $10,000 a year, but
surely if it had a tendency to diminish
tlie'JojM of life and property, if would
be money well spent, and money too
which people generally would be only
too glad to sec appropriated for the
object uiiiieil at.

KEITLE    RIVER   MINING
DIVISION,
As the Kettle Rivcr Mining Division
is now constituted, a good deal of territory which is tributary to the Mining Recorder's office at Midway, is
contained within the Osoyoos Mining
Division, Reference is made to thai
portion of torritoryknown as the Main
and West Pork of Kettle river district,
W&icb, commencing at Rock Creek or
,j,ist beyond, extends a considerable
distitneo north and west and i.s yet
we'd within what should ne the Kettle
River district. Before the last adjustment of ruining divisions in southern
Yale, thc Kettle River Mining Division
extended much further west than al
present, and it was a great mistake to
change the western boundary of the
division.
Thru contention is justified by the
fact that now that the VVusl Fork
country is rapidly developing, the
parties operating there are put to
inui-li inconvenience in having to do
business with Fairview. instead nf
with .Midway, as to the one only nr.
imperfect and round-about communi*
cation can be had, whereas to the Other
communication is direct, and too, ,-i
ciuisiiie.-.ible distance shorter, To cor-
recfc.the areas of the divisions and so
ma c them compatible with present
reipilreineuts, the western boundary of
th.- Osoyoos Division should be moved
so as to embrace the new mining territory around Twenty Mile creek, and
the western boundary of the Kettle
River Division should be moved iso as
tn embrace the West Fork of Kettle
river, and tributary territory, We
commend these changes to Uie powers
that be.

ilosely in touch with the provincial
government, discussing the notion of
the Dominion government in disallowing the legislation passed last session
touching the .i-oi king of Japanese .-.nd
Chinese underground in the mines of
the province, says:
"We regret greatly—though we are
not of course surprised to note that the
Doniinion government has disallowed
the very reasonable restrictions upon
Mongolian employment which were
last session enacted by the Provincial
legislature. We are on the other hand
glad to learn that the Provincial gov*
crniucntdeclined to stultify itself by
promising so to amend the legislation
as virtually to make it inapplicable to
the circumstances of Hritish Ooiumbia.
to this the working electors of the
province should, as they will, assuredly
support the stand taken by Mr. Semlin
and his colleagues, for our working
electors must be feeling more and more
keenly month by month the pressure
of a well organised importation of the
cheapest Oriental labor thnt will toil
and live under conditions which are
impossible for tbe western worker especially if a family man, accustomed
to decent home surroundings,
"No doubt the Provincial ministry
ivill very carefully considertlie difficult
situation that is now created by the
action of the Dominion government
and do all that is possible to secure the
limitation of the importation of the
cheapest of Mongolian labor which
mosl of us regard as undesirable under our western conditions of life."

A Little Astray.
Referring to labnr troubles in the
Slocan, the Nelaon Tribune objects to
the Nwearing in of Mpecial i-iiiistiilili-s
to protect the property of the London
_ B. O. (itildlli-ltls Company, at Ymir,
and Hays : "The government will aet
wisely if it summarily cancels the commissions of every justice of the pence
who swears in special constables without Hrst being requested tn do so by a
regularly appointed provincial constable."
In this tin-Tribune is a littleitatray,for
the reason that it magistrate dues not
necessarily have to consult a constable
liefore taking such action as he may
think proper to protect life and
properly, in the event of its being
clearly shown that there exists 11 necessity for such action.
A magistrate is clothed with certain
pbwors, which be is expected to exercise at the discretion of his own judgment, therefore, it is absurd to suggest
he should consult a second party before taking action at anytime. The
Tribune allowed ils feelings to get the
better of its usual good sense, and if
lhe government acted upon its'sng'
gestion, then would it be the laughing
stock of the whole community, and
rightly so.

How Canada was Developed.
Toronto New*.
The American statesmen are the last
ones who  should complain   of   the
strength of Canadian sentiment, and
the influence that the Dominion exercises with the British government in
the settlement of international disputes
affecting this couutry.  There was a
time in the history of Canada when it
wns at least doubtful   whether the
prosperity of Canada did not depend
to some degree upon the friendship of
the people  across the border.   One
political party preached that doctrine
most as-iiliumsh, and a considerable
portion of tho people of Canada were
disposed to accept it as correct.  If
the Americans had continued to display friendly feelings for this country
it   is     probable  that     a   warmer
sentiment  would have grown up lietween the two countries than has ever
existed, but instead of pursuing that
course, led on by some renegade Canadians, they adopted the McKinley
bill, which was almost a prohibitive
tariff   against   Canadian-  products.
That was the point from which Canadians began to grow strong and self-
reliant, and the fact that they feel
themselves stronger today than ever
liefore is due to the development that
was forced upon them by tho hostile
legislation of the United States.   By
meeting these   unfriendly   measures
with the determination to open new
channels of trade in a direction where
frindship could lie counted on as a
permunent sentiment, Canadians not
only  strengthened themselves   with
themselves,  but they gave stiiinm-r
reasons tf, the mother country to value
this portion of thu empire as it had
never been valued, and to concede to
our statesmen a measuroof influencing
imperial concerns (so far as they effect
Canada) that had not before been conceded.   Canada has reached a stage
now where it can do without the trade
of the United States.   In fact, the
prosperity of the Dominion hinges almost entirely upon the cessation of
trade between these two countries, as
it depends upon the enlargement of
intei-impei-ial commerce.   Therefore,
thc American statesmen who are  today deploring the influence of Canada
In the councils of Britain have nobody
to thank but themselves, and if that
influence restricts their effort to attain
their ends in tho Alaskan boundary
nmtter, thev may attribute it to those
who" framed prohibitive tariffs.
