railway for sections 1 and 'A of
its line. The act of the legislature for the assistance of the
construction of the road in
question provided for the making of tbe grant, hut restricted
tbe selection of the lands to
alternate blocks along the line
of railway, orAvhen these were
exhansted, tb the country reasonably contiguous.
It lias been held by those who
have disputed the legitimacy of
the grant made by the order-in-
couucil, 200 miles away from
the Ipearest point on the railway could not, by any elastic interpretation of the grant statue,
be accepted as "practicably contiguous," and during the past two
sessions, John Oliver, Smith
Curtis, E. 0, Smith and others
have been persistently seeking
the full annulment of what has
been described as a scandalous
misappropriation of the heritage
of the people. So insistent did
the objection in the legislature
become, that tlie L'ovcrnuiuui.
in March 18th of last year, passed a second order-in-council,
formally cancelling the grant as
ordered and prepared, and this
session a bill lias been brought
forward by the first minister to
ratify the second council. order
and make absolutely certain the
non-alienation of the lands in
question. This is, in effect,
what the objeciing members
have been seeking, arid it must
command their support for consistency's sake, and also for the
preservation of the lands  for
the people.
They are, nevertheless, anxious to go further and ascertain
what lies beneath the bold attempt to perpetrate, as they
aver, one of the greatest steals
on record. When it is mentioned that the lands allot ted away
from the railway line are said
to have carried with them the
rights in the oil and coal, in
what is described as the richest
section of the province in regard to these resources, the
magnitude of the transaction
may be appreciated. Naturally,
the Canadian Pacific Railway
company, which is so interested,
is not disposed to surrender so
immense a concession without
a desperate struggle, and it is
therefore likely that every possible leverage will bo used U>
defeat the bill for tho ratification as the cancellation, even il'
sueh a defeat should mean the
passing of" the Prior government. On the other hand; the
heroes of the land grant disclosures, John Oliver, et al., declare
that, they do not desire to overthrow the government by any
are freely talked of in the corridors, and may be made the
subject of their inquiries later.
VrcTOitiA, April 16.— It has
been expected that the committee to investigate the Columbia and Western charges, preferred by Mr. Oliver, would
have got down to business tliis
morning. When the committee
met, however, deputy commissioner Gore attended and explained that it would be impossible for him to present the documents in relation to the subject of inquiry before Mondiiy,
to which date the committee
was forced to adjourn. That
the inquiry is being delayed a.s
long as possible is the idea that
is gaining ground, especially
among the opposition members.
Are Working the Barbara.
Five men have the Barbara
mineral claim under a working
agreement and are sinking a
shaft ohji.ledire within.jt_shp_rt_
distance from the city of Greenwood. The mineral showing at
the surface, was ore, in which
there was a lot of lead, but as
depth is gained galena, carrying
good values in gold and silver
has taken the place of lead.
At 40 feet down, the vein is disturbed, btit bunches of good
looking ore occur in it, and it is
confidently expected that au
improvement will take place a
few feet deeper down. The men
who are working this property
are Fred lleazlewood, Gus Morrison,'Dan Gillis, Tom .leans
and Bob Wood; and they are
sanguine thee will come out
right on it. Tbe Barbara is
owned by Geo. li Naden and
Sydney M. Johnston, both of
Greenwood.

It is stated that all the -Hi

M. Fassett, one of the shareholders in the Bodie Company,
is working on a process to lemd-
le the Bodie ores successfully,
They expect to adopt a combination of amalgamation and
cyaniding. It is not a difficult
ore to treat. A 10 stump mill
which wil] handle 30 tons a day
will cost about Hi 15,000, and

trrnsiuy to pay for it.
The Bodie curries gold and
silver, and some rich oro luis

three carloads made some
months ago went $50 to the ton.
Meantime, pending the erection
of a mill, development work is
being carried on with 12 men.

Is Being Sued.
The Merchants' Bank of Canada has brought suit in the superior court, against The Republic Consolidated Gold Mining Co.
The complaint contains three
counts, alleging that the defendants gave throe notes, one for
$15,000, August S, 1000, to the
plaintiff, one for $10,000, Feb-
urary25, 1901, to the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, and one
March jTi, 1001, for $15,000. to
theCanadiun Bank of Commerce,
and that these notes have not
been paid.. Ihe suit is now
brought to collect them.
Th3 Estimates.
Tli"e-tiiu iti',1 revenue forthe
forthcoming yoar is somewhat
less than the estimates for 1003,
tlie totals being 5*2,222,568,65
and $2,19:1.470 00 respectively.
The estimate of expenditure, on
tneOther' hand, is sligEtly in excess of that provided for, being
$2,491,660.31, as against $2,475,-
•167.31. The increases are found
in tho public debt, salaries.
maintenance of public institutions, hospitals and charities,
administration of justice, education, transport and miscellaneous. Public works show a reduction of almost $100,000. In
the estimated revenue the land
sales are shown at $160,000,'as
against $480,000 in 1003; land
revenue at $50,000, compared
with $37,000; timber royalties,
etc. at $250,000, a gain of $170,-
000. Timber leases, miners' licences and mining receipts generally are declining, while the
Chinese refund amounts to
$100,000 iu place of last year's
$10,000. Foreshore leases are
the only new head of revenue,
calling for $5000, Thc cost, of

WHAT'S IN A NAME.
Official notice is given that after May 1st. prox. the Kettle
River Mining Division will be
known as the Greenwood Mining Division. Though it is said
that the latter name is "misleading," that, we think, is largely a matter of opinion. Very
few people care what the mining division is called; it will not
increase or decrease the value
of mining property contained
therein, nor bc of any material
benefit or injury to any person
or persons. But is not this
pretty small potatoes for the
Board of Trade of the City of
Greenwood? How hard times
must be when such small mat-
tors engage their attention?
Surely tlie members who conceived this and brought it beforo
tho City's Board of Trade took
the measure of his own cranium,
if he did not, accomplish anything else of importance.
North American Life Assurance
Company.
Increases are shown by this
company over the previous
year in various items, notably
in premiums, iii total income.in
assets, and in surplus, as a result of the business in 1902. It
issued policies during the last
twelve months for $6,600,000,
which is a million in excess of
any previous year; its cash income was $1,270,840, and its as-
sofc.i now exceed live millions.
These figures indicate that the
North American is one of the
large and prominent life companies of Canada. The claims
paid in 1892 amounted to $167,-
159;but there was paid to living mei-Ilbero no loon iv ovimt.bnvi
$180,655 in endowments, annuities, profit.* and surrenders.   It
is of interest to  find  that the
payments made  under investment policies compare well with
the returns made under similar
policies by some  of  the  most
successful  life   companies    in
America.   This is a tribute to
tho earning power of the company that must influence favorably auj' who desire this form
of life assurance.
. On looking over  the list of
assets, a decrease in mortgages
and in real estate is observable,
togethor with  an  increase of
nearly a million in stock, bond*'
aud debentures held.   This is iu
occordauce with  a disposition
shown by various other financial
concerns, which find that rates
of earning on gilt-edge   mortgages are now exceeded by those
yielded by the other forms of
security mentioned.   We havo
been attracted by what the company's auditor states as to his
usual procedure with regards to
loans made, whet lier mortgages
or stock.   At thee' .se of every
year ha sends tn     nn borrower
a stat iinuit oE his loan, as it appears on the company's books,
and asks if  the statement  he
encloses is correct.   The replies,
when received, from an effectual
check and safeguard.   Then the
company maintains   these   securities on its  books  at  their
face v.due,   instead  of   taking
credit for any rise ip the market
price.  It is on such conservative
methods as these that the North
American relies, we must assume, to support the  claim  to
solidity which it makes calling
itself solid as the North American continent.    The board   of
this able computer, continues to
number amongst its members
some of our best business men,
while its management is alert
and     capable.—Nelson    Daily

To Destroy Burrowing Animals
Recently we advised the use
of bisulphide of carbon for  destroying wocdclincks,but did so
for mere   theory,  not   having
seen or heard of our method lieing used.   Since publishing our
advice the New Hamphire  experiment station has issued   a
bulletin   describing   a  method
similar to the fine given in "The
Guide" and which has proven effective   in     destroying  wood-
chucks.     Carbon bisulphide is
illiquid, which on exposure to
air volatizos into a vapor that
is destructive to life.   It can be
Used to destroy gophers, foxes,
Wolves, mice, etc., as the .vapor
is m'ore than twice as heavy as
aii'; so if it is introduced at the
opening of a hole it will quickly
follow    any    opening  leading
downwards,  and   destroy   nny
living thin;.; that nny inhale it.
The jiieihod is very simple.   A
wad if cotton about the size of
an egg is  saturated  with the
liquid, requiring about an ounce,
which is thrown in the hole: or
it may be poured upon a wad of
old cloth   or   burlap    loosely
wound around   the end  of  a
s-.ick in such a way that when
the stick is pushed into the burrow  ;c.:,\ . tlio.i withdrawn the
wad will remain.   It should be
b.iru.) in iiiind that it is highly
volatile,'!'ill iriuii dile and poisonous, an 1  when 'mixed with air
13 explosive, so no fire should be
aroiiad when it is used.   With
ordinary  oare, in   its  use  out
doars thereis really no danger.
The ordinary  commercial   carina bisulphide will answer for
this   purpose,   cost about   30
cents   a   pound,  and   can  be
obtained uit drug stores,

Plain Facts.
Before the Great Northern
railway was built into Curlew,
passengers from the Boundary j
country, in order to reach Spt*- j
kane, were compelled to go over \
the C. P. R. to Rossland and
then over the Spokane Falls &
Northern to thoir destination.
The trip occupied two days.
Even to-day by ;that
route involves two days and an
expense of over $13. for transportation alone. In fact tliere
is noway a passenger from the
Boundary country can reach
Spokane by starting over the C.
P. R, in less than two days.
But to-day travelling over the
C. P. R., to reach that city is a
thing of the past, only indulged
iri by the few who (ind time
hanging heavily on their hands,
and, therefore, wish to spend it,
together with their money, in
travelling. With the advent of
the Great Northern into Curlew,
stages were put on from Greenwood to Midway, and from here
to Curlew, reaching there in
time to connect with tho Groat
Northern train for Spokane.
Not only can the trip in this way
be made in one day but the rate
from Midway to Spokane, including stage fare, is only $7.1)0.
Thus,' passengers from the
Boundary country and points
west of Midway, going to
Spokane can save time and money by travelling via tho Great
Northern.
