mui. Ik' looked haggard, pale anil
horribly allvo to tin- disgrace o! lus
position, J, ll. Harvey prosecuted
foi iht- crown, and the prlsonci was
represented by (J. H, Thompson.
To the charge, which was road bj
ihi' Registrar, Mr. Thompson put iii
a plea uf guilty and proceeded tu address tin- court in extenuation. He
pointed out Uiat Uie prisoner had
only lately come out to British Col-
iii'niii was little more than a hoy—
easily Ud for good or evil—that he
had fallen amongst evil companions.
Restitution had been made as fully as
was possible to Mr. Wilson. If thr
prisoner were to be made associate
wilh criminals he might become ol
thai class. If, ou the other hand, he
were released on suspended M-ntenct
his (thc prisoner's) friends would lake
care of him, and see that he was not
again exposed to the influences that
had caused his downfall.
Mr. Harvey pointed out that Unlaw sought no mere vengeance for
the vengcanoe sake; it was meant to
lie a protection to tte public as well
a.*, a deterent to et il doers. The
prisoner had violated the trust reposed ni lum by Mr. Wilson, and, therefore, deserved that a term ul Imprisonment be inflicted, Restitution
had certainly hern made. He left the
mattei to the court io lufllct such
punishment as tbe circumstances warranted.
His liiii.ni u, passing sentence com
merited on 'he previous good uauii
nf McKee, his .oulh. and on the facl
lhat the barm done had been made
good a.s far as that was possible. Ho
•-aid he could send him to piison for

It is reported from Cardston, Alia

near Waterloo lakes, not lar from
the town mentioned. The selling
company has sume 15,000 acres In its

It will necessarily depend, however,

Another strike in the anthracite
regions of Pennsylvania is now impending. It appears that the miners have delivered what amounts to
an ultimatum to the coal operators
requiring them to establish an eight

thc union. If either demand be re
fused the strike will be proclaimed
During th« dull season which comes

Harry Milton has built himself a
very comfortable log cabin on Ha-Ha
creek. Ills Intention Is lo work on
his iron claims all during the winter.
There can be no mistake about the
iron being there, nor can it be questioned that it is nt high grade. Milton has traced the leads down lo
within 1,000 yords of the C. p. It,
It. may prove that Milton's unaided
efforts and vivid belief in what he has
got bold of may prove tho beginning
of a great industry for Kasi Koolenay.
It is now in order lor the coal lands
of East Kootenay to afford rich pick-
ings for the lawyers. It is stated
lhat Lou Kenny and others from
Spokane have   issued   a writ against
A. W. Vowell, It. L. T. Clalbralth, J.
B. Langley and others whereby the
plaint ills claim flat lhe defendants
have not kept themselves within the
bounds of the second sinkings made
by them, hut have covered lhe bounds
of the sinkings made by the plaintiffs. The question at Issue appears
lo bv this: Suppose a man claim by
his noliee a certain amount of coal
land, and puts up his stakes ou the
presu nipt ion tha t they eucl nse as
much as his notice calls for, can he
afterwards alter his stakes when he
finds upon purvey lhat ihey do uut
enclose as much as he asked for? Pos-
sibly be might il by so duing ho did
not prejudice another man's right-..
That would appear to be what happened in this case. There have been
a number of legal decisions as to
sinkings of mineral claims under the
Mineral Act, but none so far, on the
Construction of the Coal .Mines Act,
The question Is a very interesting
mie. Happy Is the man whu.se title
to his coal or oil claim is open to no
legal question.

e\i.Unce of what may be expected
from this special Investigation thc following extracts from the report of
the minister of mines ot British Columbia for 100*1 are of interest:
"Zinc ores have been receiving a
great deal of attention during the

the Slocan disiriet, bui will the exception of the me Irom lbe Ivanhoe

sometimes in considerable quantity,
and usually associated wilh iron carbonates, Most of the concentrating
mills have now been equipped so as
lo separate out a 'zinc concehtrate'
from lhe jigs and tables. These concentrates will tun .(rum 38 lo 48 per
cent, zinc (as zinc blende), but will

a standpoint of a zinc ore, from i to

to 15 per cent, of iron, as pyrite, and
carbonate, and from 20 to 15 ounces
of silver to tho ton, with the balance

are, however, two nr three newer
processes, ui.t very widely known,
which are especially adapted tn such
ores, hul operators ol those concerns
are naturally only prepared tn give
enough for the ore to outbid tbe regtl
lar idue smelter. An electric process
is iM'ing developed in Vancouver which
las considerable promise and which
can be utilized in small units, and
this may help to solve lhe problem hy
the local treatment of tbe concentrates."
Tbe zinc situation in British Columbia is further affected by the recent
decision which imposes an additional
tariff upon ziuc into lhc United
States. In view of the progress already made in the line industry in
British Columbia and the pending investigation by experis, it is evident
that these Canadian /iuc ores must
be reckoned with in the general con

Character i.s a quality that in its
perfect building demands more care in
the. selection of the materials and the
massing of it into a symmetrical
Whole than the rearing of the    most
imposing material edifice. The Greeks
in building tiu-ii temples, so lar as
human work was able, "built Ior all
time." Tbe structures that have
survived the wearing march of centuries bear testimony to the thoroughness of the work.
The character without blemish is
hke a Greek temple, wiih the addition of an imperishable human soul,
hut with this strange and deplorable
difference— whereas the thing ol marie might stand tbo stress of lung
years, the human edifice may be
blasted bv a breath
it is a remnant oi a savage Instinct
which makes man inclined lo give an

The Vaueouver Province is n jour
mil reputed to hv In touch with the
policy of the C. iv R. in a recoil I
issue it published the following tele
■jam irom it:. Spokane correspondent;
Spokane's first thought regarding
ihe proposed road botweeu Ilelllngliam
and this div Is that it might form
.ui alliance with the new road being
bulll b) D. C. Corbin, which will
conncci Spokane with the Canadian
Pacific system. That the C. P. It.,
which is directly Interested in the
Corbin ruiul, will be content aftei
getting to this side ol Ue line to
nop at Spokane, man) do not believe.
Ureal Northern oflicinls have made
tie assertion Unit Air. Corbin and the
Canadian Pacific cannot give Spokani
Uie b. iter freight rates Spokane hopes
Lo receive when this line is finished,
if il does nut go on to the coast.
1'hey admit, however, thai if the line
Is extended through Spokane to tidewater Mr. Corbin and his allies will
have Uie power to give Spokane anv
freight rates they choose.
The Spokane A International, which
is Mr. Corbin's new road, now well
under construction, leaves the Crows
Nest, branch of the C.P. It. and comes
in a southerly direction down the
Moyie river to Spokane. Wise ones,
ever since work commenced on this
line, have said tint the Canadian Pacific would not stop at Spokane, but
would find a terminal either at Portland by building down the Columbia
river, or on to Puget Sound. Now
comes the determination of Belllng-
ham to have a road to Spokane, and
ihe first though! is that Uie most
natural thing for Mr. Corbin and his
'hackers, if he has any, or whoever
they may be, is to co-operate with
th** Bel I Ingham & Spokane road. Some
go even so far as to suggest that Mr.
Corbin has started tlie movement at
Mr. Corbin is in the east, and is expected back next month.

Victoria, Nov. j.—As a sequel to

most remarkable situations in the te
cords of criminal jurisprudence^ vi/..,

.Males prison.', who legally were .entitled to the sanctuary of llritish soil,
uud lhat on the older hand Uie surrender has been refused ot criminals-
whom Uie slates had a perfect riglu
to ask lor. 'lhe discovery is a sur
prise to tlie profession in lliis counti)

beiug made defendant in hoth blgam)
and perjury proceedings—he carefullj
informed himself as to lhe status oi
the extradition law, going to Uw two
greatest llritish and Canadian authorities, respectively, on such law, Sii
Edward Clarke and Mr. CraukshftW,
for the assurance that perjury, as
bigamy, is not an offence provided lot
111 the Canadian Extendi Moil Act of
1881). Investigation by counsel foi
the State ol California, developed the
fact that Uie act of 18H!) contained a
provision to the effect that it should
not become operative until brought
into iorce hy a proclamation. Search
of all oiders in council aud proclamation notices in the Canada Gaxotte,
disclosed ihe astounding fact that thf
proclamation had been overlooked;
lhat lhe act of 1880 is nol In force
and never has been; that the act ot
1880 is stilt thc uulv extradition law
operative in Canada, nud thai all
judgments handed down hy extradl

given; also'ihat Clarke and Crank-
sliaw, the highest authorities, for
once arc in pardonable error. The
non-proclamation being positively es-
tablished and Uie authorities discredited, Collins' castle of fancied security came tottetlng down to ruins. His
tight, therefore, was purely [rerlunc-
tory and upon technicalities only.
IrVluuipog, Nov. 3.—The twenty-five
million mark in wheal receipts Was
j.assed by the C, P. It. to-day. When
it in remembered that last year al
thc present date lhc total amount
marketed was only 11,000,000 bushels
the immense activity of the western
farmers of the present season i.s apparent.
Pp to the close of business y'ester
day there had heen delivered al C. P.
It. tracks M,052,000 bushels of wheal
and 11,113,000 bushels nl othei
grains, ;i grund total of 25,707,00(1
bushels of grain.
In ih, corresponding period last
year ihe quantity was 11,538,000, the
astonishing advance of the present
season over tlie past is unaccountable
except on lhc supposition that the
grain Held of the present vear Is
about double thai ol last ' vear.
Should the presenl rate ol receipts
as compared wild last vear he main
talliod the total foi the'vear will be
nearer 185,000,000 tlan 1011,01111,(100.
No conservative judge suggests ihat
either ol these figures will be reached
hut it becomes Increasingly apparent
that the figures fixed ou early In ihe
fall will be (ar surpassed.

How easy it is to blame a newspaper man. The idea ol Uie average
individual seems to be that thc editor of an newspaper should be criticised at all times for everything. But
it, perchance, some act ot their* is
subjected tn the mildest of unfavorable comment, they become indignant
and rant in their rage at the editor,
Cninlirook has a few like this, the
s every other town, but very
lew And such people never think ol
dropping a word ol thanks foi a good

Other men may become discouraged ai

newspaper publisher may bo discouraged too, He is human. But he
chokes it down, and each issue of his

reading the Free Press. Editor Wallace kepi up thc good work, maintaining that thero were brighter times
ahead. And there are cases like this
all over Canada and the United
States, many, many of them, it is
a common saying, that the newspaper
man will get his reward in heaven.
Well, perhaps, but the trouble is thai
too many of them are not traveling
that- way. Still, the question of reward does noi bother them. Some
have heen fortunate enough to get
U'eir business paid for, and perhaps
own a homo. Some, in towns that
have developed rapidly Into large cities, have in-cumulated small fortunes.
But ihere is not one in five hundred
who could get u note cashed at tte
hank for $1,000 wlthoul good endorsers, and we don't know of ono in
llritish Columbia. Hul ii is a pleasant life. One always has staunch
friends, and thai is a lot iu this
world. Take it all together, if wc
nel    past -St.   Peter,   nn     doubt we

Mr. C. McNah. of the Standard
Lumber Co. states that thoy are
about to use traction engines in future for ihe hauling ol their logs.
Tht.-a. engines will he of 100 horse
power each, nnd will he able to haul
easily IJU tons of logs on the level
The trucks will eaeli accommodate
about 10 tons of limber. They will
be of steel, and enst" ahoul $700 per
truck. The engines and trucks are
built to carry 80,000 feet of Umber to
the load under normal conditions
Nothing more is expected or them
that what linrsr.s would do. Where
horses can operate so can they. A
logging mail which will carry a iruok
will suit those great savers ol labor
and expense, The day and time ol
the older methods nl logging are passing and giving way to better ones to
meet the demands ol changing conditions and mote active competition of
rivals in the field.
Evidently the Standard people do
not mean to he caught by any aggressive rivalry either of those about
them nr those on Ihe coast.
