it>a felony without benefit of clergy or
anything else to name a town Kushko-
nook, as a now one in Kootenay is
called. The name recalls a stanza
from an amusing poom on the Indian
names of New Brunswick, written long
ago by James Hannay, now editor of
the St. John Telegraph, if we are not
mistaken. It is as follows."

Narrow Escape of Literals From
Before leaving last Monday for a six
weeks recreation tour to New Orleans,
Mayor Charles W. McAnn, spoke as
follows to a News representative concerning the desirability of the establishment of a county court at Kaslo.
Mayor McAnn went via Victoria where
he will stop a few days to render assistance to Kaslo's delegates to present
her wants to the legislature. The del-1
egation comprises President G. O.
Buchanun, of the Board of Trade,
Alderman J. D. Moore and Police
Magistrate Alex. Lucas, who will be
joined soon for a few days by ex-Mayor
Robert P. Green, while enroute to
Hawaii. The delegation will, among
other affairs, put forth an effort for the
establishment of a county court.
Mr. McAnn said: "I do not think
that you can quote me anyitoo strongly
with reference to the desirability and
justice of the establishment in Kaslo of
a count}- .court. In 1895, before Rossland hod a registrar's office and
all the legal work of West Kootenay waa done at Nolson, I made an
examination of the records there, and
found that 68 per cent, of the business
came from Kaslo and the Slocan. I
presented these facts to Judge Spinks
as a reason why he should hold court
here. He consented and came here
four or five times and finally refused to
return again for lack of a suitable
room in which to hold court. His sessions averaged from three to live days
here as against often but half a day at
"We should urgo at length upon the
government the necessity of a court
here with a deputy sheriff and regular
terms of assizes. The Ainsworth and
Slocan mining division should be made
a separate sub-judicial district. This
is a crying need of our eity. Its consideration is of more importance than
that of a sewerage system. I believe
a, present examination of the records
in Nelson will show at least 50 per
cent, of tbe cases as coming from Kaaio
and the Slocan country. Judge Forln
says|that he is willing to come to Kaaio
but that he wants the government to
take the initiative."
"Personally I think .the oity should
put up good buildings, when it starts,
something that it could sublet to the
provincial government for court purposes. I would be willing as a ratepayer to have additional debenture
bonds stand against my property,
sufficient to construct an $8,000 or
910,000 building. As the matter stands,
the subject will bo one of continual
reproach to the govornment until it
attends to it properly."
Knrrlster Wheallor's Vlewi.
A. Wheallor, the well known barrls-
ter.sald: "I oonsider this A vital question. We are entitled to some
consideration here ln this line in return
for the large taxes we pay. There
should be both a district registrar of
the supreme court here a^nd a county
court registrar. Both offices could be
filled by ono able man. The amount
of money and time that Kaslo litigants
spend in Nelson that ought to be kept
here is something enormous."
Attorney Martin's Views.
Attorney George E.Martin aaid: "Of
course, the saving of expense to the
Kaslo and Slocan public is the main
item. The loss of time in going to and
from Nelson is also a serious disadvantage. Among other inconveniences
may be noted that 'in case of getting
out a garnishee summons, before summons can bo obtain id from Nelson the
money sought to be garnisheed may
be all paid out."

The Ii*vlutlinu Gold Mining Co.
The Leviathan Gold Mining and Milling Company has an announcement of
interest to our readers elsewhere in
this issue, This company owns one of
the best and largest mineral prospects
in the Kootenay. It is an immeuse iron
capped ledge on Kaslo mountain,across
the lake. Assays have run from a
trace of gold at the surface to $10.'20
gold per ton at a depth of ten feet, with
3.8 oz. silver and 11-4 per cent copper.
A good pack trail has been built to the
property, cabins erected and active development work is in progress. Six
men are constantly employed. For
some time previous to the location of
the Leviathan group, rich float was
found along Campbell creek, about 3
miles from Kaslo, and was finally
traced to the lead which forms the
backbone of this group. The tunnel Is
now in nearly 100 feet with about 125
feet of depth. It is expected that the
ledge will be tapped within another 50
Considering that the group comprises
10 claims, the capitalization of 2,000,000
shares ls not large; and the further
fact that halt of these aro treasury
shares for development purposes
makes the project one well worth investigating. Pew companies place so
large a proportion of their shares in
treasury stock. If the early promises
of nature, with reference  to this big
prospect  are  realized,  it  will make
Kaslo another Rossland.

inept would do something to foster and
protect the home industry of the manufacture of lead and lead products, was
quoted as desiring to see an export
duty placed on them; when, what he
did say was that he desired to see an
import duty so placed. As Mr. Mathews has since staled to us, "Any one
reading the article careful'y would observe from the context the inconsistency and doubtless attribute It to an
error, but some reading hastily might
not observe it." We are glad to make
this correction, lt again calls attention to a very important matter which
Mr. MathewB has first called public attention to through the columns of the
B. C. News.

Toronto, Maroh 2.���The latest returns on yesterday's elections show the
liberal government haa been sustained
by a majority of three. The figures
are 48. liberals, 43, conservatives, 1 patron and 1 independent. There is one
constituency yet to hear from.
Ottawa, Ont., Maroh 1.���The general
elections for the Ontario legislature
took place throughout the province
today, and resulted in the virtual if not
actual defeat for the liberal government, which has held power for more
than 25 years. Thet contest has been
exciting, the conservative leader, J. P.
Whitney, being a young tnan and a
new leader, while A. S. Hardy, the
premier, was the successor of Sir
Oliver Mowat, now lieutenant-governor
of Ontario.
The complexion of the house was:
liberals 53, conservatives 24. patrons of
industry 13. independents 3. The patrons have been a branch of the liberals,
so that the government has had a
majority of 30 or more votes. The returns to-night indicate a great revulsion of feeling.
In the 04 constituencies elections
took place today In 03, the other being
Two cabinet ministers havo been defeated- -John Dryden, minister of agriculture, and J.M.Gibson, commissioner
of crown lands. The result is a surprise to the supporters of the government.
The timber policy of the administration, which, is alleged, has favored
Michigan lumbermen at the expense of
Canadians, had much to do with
Premier Hardy's defeat. Toronto
returned four conservatives. The
final result <of the fight probably will
be decided at the bye elections, as the
house does not meet again until next
winter, and there sure to be many
contests in the courts.

Probably as much improvement has
taken place at Moyle City, situated on
the Moyle lake at the base of the
mountain which holds the celebrated
Eugene group, Moyle groupe,and Lake
Shore group, as any place in the East
Kootenays. While all of these groups
are working, the forces are small, the
owners preferring the railroad for
shipment of ores. Several thousand
tons of lead and silver ore are on the
the dumpe awaiting shipment, while
across tbe lake on the west Bide Capt.
Sanborne and others have struck a
veirnof ore which runs higher than the
St. Eugene, although the lead is not so
wide. There are ten or fifteen other
locations on that side of the lake, all
showing more or less mineral of high
Moyle City now haB three hotels, two
general stores, drug store, blacksmith
shop, livery and feed stables, and with
the opening of spring will have a brick
plant, and now has two saw mills,
which find ready sale for all the lumber
they can cut for building a^nd railroad
purposes. Messrs. McMahon brothers
were the first to start business there,
and their trade has so increased that
they now have one of the largest mercantile Institutions in the East Kootenay.
A telephone line is now being constructed between Fort Steele and
Moyie, and will be in operation by
Maroh 15, and it Is the Intention of
this company to connect all the mining
camps with Fort Steele as fast as It Is
practicable to do so.���Fort Steele correspondence of Spokesman-Review.
New Hospital Headquarters.
Dr. J. F. B. Rogers' hospital having
outgrown its premises of the past few
months has been relocated in the handsome new Livers residence, corner of
Sth and B. The new quarters will also
be occupied by tho doctor both as a
residence and office. The Rogers hospital is a success and is especially appreciated by miners, who, when sick
or victims of accident, were formerly
compelled to move to Nelson for hospital accomodations.
The city council has held two meetings since the last issue of the News.
At an adjourned meeting held last Friday evening, the adoption of the following preamble and resolution, endorsing the request for government aid
from the Kaslo & Lardo-Duncan railway, was the principal business transacted.
It was moved by Alderman Whiteside and seconded by Alderman Archer as follows:
Whereas, The great Lardo-Duncan
mining country remains inaccessible
and undeveloped because of the lack of
transportation facilities; and
Whereas, It is directly for the welfare of this city as well as for the
whole district of Kootenay and the
province generally that the' said Lardo-Duncan railway have a provincial
and dominion charter, to construct and
operate a railway in the said mining
country; therefore, be it
Resolved, By this council, that the
provincial government be and is hereby by them, respectfully requested to
aid by way of subsidy, the said company to construct said railway by
granting to the said company the right
and privilege to locate and crown grant
a reasonable number of mineral claims
in the electoral districts, of North and
South Kootenay for each mile of railway constructed.

The lasso Is of grent antiquity. It is
snid lo be depleted ln the ruins of Nineveh. An enrly Persian manuscript,
preserved In the Kscurlal, shows a
sportsman (whom 1 suppose roynl by
his Olympian expression nnd careless
seat) in Hie act ot catching a wild ass
with a nicely plnlted lnsso. The monarch bestrides a rather "stooky"-look-
Ing, dnrk-eolored horse, with four
white feot nnd a white face. A bow,
quiver, and a saber are hung from
bis saddle, ami a sort of housing'half
covers the horse. How the wild ass Is
to be restrained, even by the hand of
a monarch. Is not at tlrst sight evident,
for the lasscr Is neither fixed to the
saddle, sifter the fashion of the
gauchot, nor Is a half-turn taken round
the pommel, in the style adopted by
vaqtieros In Mexico and Texas. Apart
from this detail all is as realistically
set forth ns It would be to-day In a
photograph. The horse bears nwny
from the lienst lnssoed, and the King
sits a little to one side, exactly us a
Texan cowboy or nn Argentine gaucho
sits under slmlhir circumstances. Irises
and Narcissi spring up under the
horse's feet, and an applauding group
of angels peep out of a cloud, while iu
the middle distance another Persian
gaucho shoots nn antelope with an arrow while galloping at full speed.
The Laplanders are snid to lnsso their
reindeer, unci the Tartars and modern
Australians use a rudimentary lnsso
fixed to n long pole in order to ctiteli
wild or refractory horses. The Poles,
Croatians, and Wallaehians. with the
Hungarians, seem to have used the
lasso till about tlie beginning of the
present century. A-pleture by Hie Herman artis-t Hichler shows Polish remounts for the German cavalry being
lassoed in the /.winger at Dresden.

"Havana is the one place where the
chief occupation of the Inhabitants
seems to consist of tippling." sulci William Ryan, tlie well-known Virginia
journalist, tit the Metropolitan.
������it Is the drinker's paradise, nnd
also the smoker's, for lu these two habits everybody Indulges with a freedom
1 never saw elsewhere. People get up
ra then early iu tbo Cuban capital to enjoy the cool morning air, and scarcely
lake anything except a coffee and roll
before breakfasting at 11 a. in. Before
that period the regulation amount of
tipple for u Cuban gentleman ls six gin
coektulls. Thus fOrtlfled he can make
out  till  the tirst  meal of the day, at
which ii is ilu- proper aud customary
net to drink a bottle of claret and likewise a bottle of champagnes The latter costs Just us much, loo, lei It not
escape your mind, as lt does in the
United state's.
"Now, having breakfasted, our friend
is getting ready for the serious business
of ihe day -ihc consumption of olher
spirituous drinks.   His fancy turns to
brandy and soela ul this sluge. nml ere
the dinner hour arrives he must have
swallowed no less thnn six b, nud s's:
nt least lie is shy of the requisite quota
unless that many have' followed the gin
coektulls. There Is no limit,. though,

tegardedasu minimum. Dinner,comes
on, ami with It another bottle of claret
and ditto champagne, Just us at breakfasts In the evening there Is uo regular program, but mixed drinks are Indulged lu ml libitum. I will say. Incidentally. Unit payments for nil drinks

The Bill Fish   An emin*nt American statesman, a
F 'l t i n 11 til p      *ow day8 since, in a public address on
. U11�� UlC the "Obligations of Wealth," said:
KlttlC Olies. ''It seems to many that more and
"more small men, small stores and Btnall factories aro be-
"ing thrown upon the shore as financial drift or wreckage;
"that the pursuit of cheapness has coached a stage where
"only enormous combinations of capital, doing an enormous
"business, aro sure of returns." This is eminently true of
the United States, which seems to be the leader in the
movement to crush out individual effort; but it is also a
movement that is spreading all over the civilised world.
Monopolies and trusts aro invading overy single standard
country and rapidly supplanting or absorbing every thing
that they come in contact with.
Charles .1. Hobinson, a Cleveland representative of organized labor, who has been making a study of the trusts,
claims that IIO such combinations havo boen formed In the
United States within the past 60 days. These include a
biscuit trust with $00,000,000 capital; a paper trust with
116,000,000 capital; a beer and whisky combine of ��100,000,-
0(H); and trusts in sewer pipe, lime, fresh flsh, steel and
wire, bridge materials, pottery, steel beams, river coal,
���pianoH, stamping works, window glasB, bottles, flint glass,
axes and tools, cavo troughs, plumbing marblo, tlnplates
und 'p'6wdeti'.'
Where Is this to end?. Oqos it never occur to tho fosterers of tliis highly complex and unnatural system of interference with the laws of supply and demand that they
may be evolving a set of conditions that will prove suicidal
to themselves and murderous to the entire race? The nearer man keeps to a few of theSlmplo principles of nature,thu
safer and happier bo is. But load down society in the mass
witli false monetary systems, and abused protective systems, under which monopolies and-trusts flourish, and tha
end is apt to be chaos. But if- the people arise in their
might and assert themselves, social growth and order may
once more prevail.
The Citv   The people of tu0 olt,y ��* Kaf,i�� ����n
���.j   .    .. congratulate themselves that the pres-
" * riming. ence 0f the B.C. News has saved them,
among other things, several hundred dollars a year formerly paid for the city printing? The Kootenaian ln its desperation in trying to crush out a rival has offered to do it
for Ave cents. The city council will doubtless accept tho
offer and properly so. Tho Nows made nn offer in which It
thought that there would be, if not a small margin of profit,
at least living wages.
The Kootonalan's dog-in-the-manger policy will be remembered. .If it counts upon any gratitude from the people for Us offer it will Und itself mistaken. If a gratis offer
is right this year, why wus It not right last year? If the
Kootenaian also thus Insidiously sucks to earn the gratitude of the city oounell in order that they will see fit to donate to it tbe $250 asked for Its board nt trade edition, lt
will And that the council Is composed of high tniodod men
who will spurn the offer |u disgust. Perhaps the Kootenaian expects to make, tills up on the job work that It hopes
to get from tbe t-Uy, but it will find that others can bid for
job work, along with it.
Individual members bf tho council for the most part
were agreeable to dividing the business on the old basis
and giving the city the benefit of the combined circulation
of both papers. But no, nothing would suit Mr. King but a
war of extermination; unless ho expected tho News to fall
jVn with a whispered suggestion of hit, relative to "addition,
.division and' sUence." "Of course," said virtuous Mr.
King, as he winked the other eye and picturesquely spat
from between his teeth, "I wouldn't offer to do anything of
I hut kind, but then such thingshave been done, you know."
But if Mr. King expects acqulesence from this offloe In
either extermination or corruption, jm will wait until ho
has many more wrinkles and grey hairs than he has now.
People have long considered Mr. King as a five-cent
man, but they hardly expected that his jaunty self-assurance, freshness and conceit would ��> blind him that he
would voluntarily put himself on record as a five-cent man.

Mr. McConnell has been appointed Provincial Mineralogist as foreshadowed by the News several weeks ago.
Help out redistribution and more legislative representation from Kootenay by getting on the voters' list if you

The C. P. P.. ls driving consternation to tho hearts of
its American rivals by threatening another and deeper cut
in passenger rates. They are even appealing to the U. S.
congress for aid to discriminate against it. We say with
Mr. Kellie, "Let her flicker." Competition is the life of
After this issue the B. C. News will pay as little attention as it can to the mental vagaries of the Kootenalan's
BO-called editor. We do not want to weary the public with
newspaper rows. Yet this row Is not of our seeking and
we certainly are not meek .enough to make no defense
when attacked.
Will the nautical editor of the Kootenaian inform a
curious public when the old time ceremony of christening a
newly launched boat was changed by "breaking a bottle of
wine over the stern" Instead of the bow? This is only in
line, however, with that journal's strictures on turbine
It is hoped that the strong endorsements which the
Lardo-Duncan Co.'s railway has received, as well as the
merits of tho enterprise, which are many, will cause the
govornmentjto grant the aid which has boen asked toward
pushing thc road through, this coming spring and summer.
Such a railway In operation would not only be a great aid
to Kaslo but to the entire Kootenay.
If the warning sounded by the civic commission of Slocan City to our city counoll ts not an error, that body certainly has demonstrated Its usefulness. All propositions
looking toward a monopoly of natural resources, such as
running streams, should be promptly nipped In the bud. If
Kootenay Is to continue to be a country where a poor man
can have a chance, the monopolies and trusts should be
headed off. 	
According to the Kootenaian, Waltor C. Nichol is
"onoof the cleverest paragraphers ln tho country," and it
proceeds to* quote approvingly from the Province some of
his "off-hand joshes." Last summer, according to the
same paper, Nichol was "an itinerant penny-a-liner," and
there was nothing too mean to say. Now it is different. Mr.
Nichol edits the Province. The Province Is tho personal
organ of Mr. Bostock. Mr. Bostock owns Mi\ King. And
there you have it.
The B. C. News continues to be a thorn In the Kootenalan's side. In Its issue of February 10th, It concluded a
very extraordinary article by promising the public that lt
would never notice us again. The Kootenaian kept Its
word as well as lt generally does. It has not omitted In an
issue since to testify Its regard for us ln Its usual peculiar
style. At flrst it was done in a sneaking sort of a way
through Its local columns, but In its last issue it ls doing
business again at the old stand, calling names and making
faces like a school boy, through Its editorial columns.
The Kootoualan pounces upon a typographical error In
the last Issue of the News and savagely worries it like a
puppy terrier might shake a stray kitten. The article is
oorrected elsewhere and would have baen corrected whether the Kootenaian devoted a half column editorial to it or
not. Any one less obtuse than the Kootenaian editor
could have told by the context that the error was purely
typographical. If every typographical error appearing in
the Kootenaian were thus treated, It -would take a paper
bigger than the New York Sunday Journal to contain the
We might say. "In Its usual blundering way, our local contemporary says that Kaslo will be a customs outport
on and after April 1st, and that Trail will get the same
honor." But we will bo charitable and merely mildly suggest tbat somebody in haste made a slight error. Kaslo
and Rossland will both .be ports of entry after March 31st,
with all the distinctions that chief or warehouse ports
have. Nakusp will be taken from Revelstoke and made an
outport of Kaslo, while Trail will be taken from Nelson and
made an outport of Rossland. "There is a vast difference,
Mr. Editor, between the wordB 'outport' and 'chief port.' "
That might have been an amusing story in last Saturday's Kootenaian, regarding the editor of the News and
Sir Charles Hlbbert Tupper. The climax, however.laoked
ono essential element���truth. Dave never allows a little
thing l|ke that, though, to stand In tbo way of what he
considers an opportunity to get even. Such a question as
he quotes was novel*asked. Sir Charles Hlbbert Tupper Is
gentleman���a term that evidently has no meaning to the
Kootenaian���and it Is unnecessary to state that he never
made the remark attributed to him. On tbe contrary tl��e
B. C. News has enjoyed pleasant business and social relations with Sir Charles since tbe Interview, which relations
were entirely voluntary on his part and not at all likely to
occur, It be held the opinions charged.
Loungers on the boulevards have been treated to a novel spectacle, which has created no little amusement. As
they were Strolling about, looking into the shop windows,
several individuals attired In frock coats and tall hats,malting their appearance on the scene, went up to any of them
and bowing profoundly stood before them for several moments with bent and bare heads, and then departed with*
out uttering a word. The fair ones were at first startled,
then smiled, and gazed intently on the men who had '���thus
politely and respectfully saluted them. What did it all
m ean, tbe men began to ask, for they had not been favored
in a similar manner. A little dodging behind a group of
women to whom one of the mysterious promenadors waa
paying bis homage, led to a prompt solution of the enigma.
Each of the gallant cavaliers was wearing a wig specially
contrived for the oqcasion.and on the top of the bead where
do balr was to be seen,..were printed in large letters words
announcing the approaching opening of a place of amusement. Tbe hare head was bent a sufficiently long time to

It is possible to be too diligent in business and too persistent ln advertising. An Engitsb paper tells of a lithographing establishment In Manchester which recently received from a London customer a circular note announcing
tbe death of the head of the firm. It was given to a clerk
with Instructions to write a letter of condolence in reply,
and this is what he produced: ''We are greatly pained to
learn of the loss sustained by your firm and extend to you
our heartfelt sympathy. We notice that the circular you
sent us announcing the death of the head of your firm la
lithographed by a London firm. We regret that you did
not see it in your way to intrust us with the work. The
next time there Is a bereavement in your house we shall be
glad to quote you for lithographed circulars, and are. confident that we can give you better work at less cost than
anybody else In the business."
More advertisements are printed today than ever before in the world's history. Not many years ago the "ad"
copy was prepared in haste, the work being considered a
disagreeable task, to be dispatched and over with as soon
as possible. Today the merchant that advertises���and all
successful ones do���seeks to put up In form and matter an
advertisement attractive in appearance and entertaining In
contents. The pains, the taste, the originality, the different designs, the interesting matter, and always and mainly
the bargains and novelties given and described, make the
modern ad one of the most attractive, entertaining and valuable features of every well regulated newspaper, and
which in every persistent instance Decomes a thing of beauty and a joy of succeeding days. This is the age of the ad,
one of the positive proofs that this is an age of progress.

Xelson Tribune Deprecates Chanycs
in Mining Laws.
Tampering with the mineral act is to
be at ull times condemned, and the proposed changes, originated by W. A.
Cjarlyle, affecting the life of a location
are not  favored   by   tho   miners, anil
should not be countenanced by the mining committee of   the legislature.   As
the  nature  of  the  changes becomes
mora familiar, the greater is tho opposition   evinced   throughout   tho district.   Mr. Carlyle'* idea of uniformity
in the tenancy of   all mineral locations
Is by no means modern, and  his pro-
I osuls are not in   tlie line of   improvement.   To the capitalist it would work
no hardship, but to  the prospector it
would mean his all.   Then can bo no
general fault found with the act as it
low stands, and it tends to greater confidence from the   prospector   than the
proposed amendments would evoke. To
ie circumscribed in the   scope   of his
operations does not encourage the prospecting  of   a    country's  mineral resources by the hardy   miner.   British
Columbia (loos not aim to be narrow in
ils laws, believing in the most good for
the general masses���a fact that should
be ever before tlie   eyes of the legislature.   There is need of amendments to
the act, but they follow rather the line
of equalising the discriminating burdens the coal barons have boen   instrumental in thrusting upon the precious
metal industry, and not in the  lessening of the few advantages possessed by
the pioneers,-Nelson Tribune.
