.canal and obtaining A magnificent

agreement made ob the 7th i u;-1 w,
1885, between Grobni-m -im . .-o-
vincial Government. We do ik ow
whether tbit agreement is e_ ,uit or
not. Mr. Grohman ap|iears to have
floated two companies���the only thing
tbat did float in connection with the
construction of tbt canal, Tbe first
wat the Kootenay Syndicate Limited,
of which he wat tht Managing Director, tht other directors being J. P.
Fenwiok and Tbomae Bate. The solicitor wat Arthur Fell, 40 Queen Victoria Street. London. We do not know
much about thit syndicate or tbe
Kootenay Valleyt Company Limited,
which wat formed on the 7th Auguet,
1889. Both were foreign companiee
with their head offices in London and
the scene of their operations far removed. We bave however been able
to ascertain the chairman of thit company wat Henry Seton Karr and that
jti Secretary wat alto Artbnr Fell,
solicitor, 40 Queen Victoria Street,
Londpn. The Kootgnay Valleys Company wat formed (1) To adopt and
narry oat a certain agreement dated
the 16tb March, 1887, made between
the Kootenay Syndicate und Robert
Maurice Rand ; (2) To engage in any
other business. The capital wat ��100,-
000 in 20,000 shares of ��5 each. Mr,
Robert Maurice Rand wae evidently a
mere go-between, a link to connect
the two companion together, tbe moving and controlling spirit being W. A.
Baillie Grohman.
The Kootenay Valleyt Company waa
floated in 1889 and tht ditch appears
to have been flnithed about 1892. We
do not kgoir who wat responsible for
the drawing up of tbe Articles of
Agreement, gt whether they were re-
vistd by tbt Attorney-General. There
were tome nine or a dozen in number.
Tbe following is an epitome of them ���
Article 1 -A navigable canal wat
to bt made .30 feet wide, 4 fttt deep,
with a lock MO feet long and 30 feet
wide. Plun�� were to be lodged on or
beforo 1st July 1887. Within tis

We do not know how tba . -cist

Ajticle 7.-The balance oi .'deposit wat to be forfeited in the event
of tbe canal not being completed, but
lands granted w,er��- to bt retained to
tbe extent of f 5 par acre to cover the
forfeited deposit.
Article  8 Within  six   months a
tteam tag wat to be put on tht Upper
Kootenay River capablt of carrying 10
tons from tht Canal Flft to-tht boundary line, always provided the river is
navigable for steamers. Tbit was a
lien, beautiful provito.

Tbe agreement alto ttipnltted that the
land to be eonveyed wat to comprehend the 2,000 or 8,000 tcret on tbe
Canal Flat, and that the remainder of
it was to consist of swamp and bottom lands and bench lands down to
tho Boundary line. In short tbe best
and finest land in tbt valley was to be
.""jTwo quej-fj<-ns here arise and the
ilrst is whO-waR the Attorney -General
that revised this agreement; he must
oither have been possessed of blundering ttnpldity or been guilty of gross
dereliction of duty in patting such an
agreement*���where no proviso it made
for the forfeiture of the lands or the
cancellation of the agreement���in the
event, which did happen, of tbe syndicate and Mr. Bai|'je pot eftrrgjng out
tbeir agreement, And the second
question it who was tbt engineer that
approved of the plans, supervised the
work and passed the same, Hit name
should bt known, and if alive tome ex*
planation should be got. We do not
know whether the canal wat tver completed or not by the syndicate or Mr.
Baillie. but wt do know that not a
tingle boat ever passed through it, so
lopg as the syndicate or Mr. Baillie
were connected with it. The wbple
30,000 acres were granted at three
different dates, in 1889, 1890 and 1892,
and are known aa " Lands A." We
know that disputes arose between Mr.
Baillie and the government, after Mr.
Baillia't company had nohleil the lands
snd whether it took post-ensign of the
canal under Article '; >. the , leement
we do not know, I... .' like to
know. Our means ���' rf.r .atjon are
meagre and the go,-. = nt is naturally net prepared to .iirow much light
on thie job. Bill an interosiing correspondence is printed in the Session papers of lfi91���where tbe Dominiou
Government teems to have returned���
and it appears at page 491 as if the
canal wat completed in-1889 no lar at
Mr Baillie Grohman or his syndicate
were concerned. Tbere teems also to
bave been tome disputes ss to tlie land.
Tbere being complaints by Mr. Baillie
Grohman that tbe Hopqrqbie James,
the Provincial Secretary, had got bolu
of 2,320 acres of tbe landt, being lott
125 and 128, to which he had /got
crown granta on 25th April, 1889.
Some other time we shall return to the
land grants of tiio Honorable James.
We will however content oaraelvet
with thit present swindle.
At the time tbe agreement wat entered into tbe Hon. Win, Smith, tbe
Land Commissioner, appears tp bave
visited the Upper Valley in October
1886, for we observe from theacpounta
ending June, 1887, certain pay-gent!
in connection with thia visit, tuch at
boat hire, Columbia Lakes to Golden
City 125; provisions tupplitd by Jas.
Baktr at Cranbrook 118.12.
Tho fatt of tht syndicate was it wat
wound up on 80th April, lj-92, at 80
Gracoohuroh street, London ; Mr.
Bsiliio Grohman in tho chair, and
moviug tbe resolution letting forth
that the shareholders approva of tbe
vario.it steps be bad taken to protect
tbeir interests, and in respect he had
\ incurred liabilities the syndicate were
unable to meet, it uns resolved that
the company be wound up, and that
all tbe property, rights, c -., of Tlie
Kootenay Syndicate bt trausfoi-red to

wat all pnwtrful in voting strength
aud tht resolution was declared carried aud the tyndioatt disappears out

' The annual report by Mr. J. F.
Armstrong, Gold Commissioner lor
East Kootenay, appears in the Annual
Report of the Minister of Mines for the
year ending 31st Dec 189(1 and is as
The value of the output from placer
mines has decreased in consequence of
several properties formerly worked by
hand passing into the hands of hydraulic companies, who did not get
their plant into operation until the
best part of the season was over. The
wash-up for the balance of the season
was satisfactory to the proprietors,
and both companies on Wild Horse
Creek .are now well prepared -for next
year's work. A little desultory placer
mining waa done on other creeks, but
the proceeds were small.
The output from lode mines is practically copBned to shipments from the
North Star Mine. Thia would have
been larger but for accidents to two of
tbe largest steamers transporting the
ore, * one being laid up for a month,
and another being sun- at the begin-
ing of the best stsge ol water. The
shipments from this mine consisted of
2,644 tons of ore, yielding 83,220
ounces of silver and -,179,807 lbs,
Development work has been done on
the Sullivan group, on Mark Creek, on
the Cronin group, on Moyie Lukes, on
the Dibble group, ou Lost Creek, and
on a few others, while the work on
the bulk of the claims hus been confined to tho necessary representation.
The Cronin group, has much ore on the
dump, but will uot muke shipments
until the construction of tbe Crow's
Nest Railwuy, which is expected to
to pass close to tlie (nine.
During the past season some capital
has   been   secured, and the  spring ol
. 1897   will  see  more men at work ou
development than any nretious season
Fine prospects oh which little work
hss been done, are numerous and cupi
tslists   wbo  are  willing to assist in
development work, can liud profitable
The number of the prospectors in the
district has increase., but the majority of tbem have only enough capital
to locate and represent tbeir claims,
and without more1 financial strength
the progress of mining will be slow.
If tbe Provincial'Mineralogist could
visit and muke a .report on the district,
at, sin early date next summer, it
would he of great advantage to the
mining interests, for a thorough examination by a thoroughly competent
person will be of more value than the
information which I could give ns to
tbe mineral character of tbe different
As a great influx of prospectors and
invettors is expected next season, I
add to my report a list of the localities
in whicli lode mines hnve lieen located
or worked durinr* the season, together
with a description of the menus ui'
access to the office of each d-.-i-.iorr
mentioned. I consider that the district has a good nuinbei of useful
trails; they/have not always been located to the best advantage, but they
are being gradually and systematically
improved, and in laying out new trails
the quettion of gradual gradient is
kept iu view, and where advisable the
trails are built on a location fit for a

It hat to long been recognised by
society at large that the breaking of an
engagement should come from the
lady't side, and tbat a man it bound
in honor to hit word, tbat it may
sometimes give rise to the error of tup-
posing tbat cutler no circumstances in
life should a man ever end an engagement.
There many cases in which it is not
only justifiable, but any other couise
would be wrong. Should a man be so
unfortunate as to discover thut a girl
hat insanity or nny other hereditary
taint in her family, or has formed intemperate habii.-i--t.his is not unprecedented, outrageous us it may seem���
be is positively to be roinmended for
breaking his engagement. To fulfill it
would be to commit a wrong,
When a girl flirts with other men,
or shows a man plainly that ahe does
not love him, he Is quite within his
rights in givlne her up. When she
hat deceived him in any way, and tbe
knowledge of that deceit comes to bim,
then he is absolved from all duty in
fulfilling his pledge.
When his prospects tuddenly fail,
���nd he has no hope ol marry ng, it is
not his place to break tbe engagement,
but to offer to release his finances,
should she desire her release, It is for
her to decide whether the engagement
should continue or not���he cannot
honorably end it.
Tbe same may be said ol those unfortunate cases where his affections
cool, or he finds after his engagement
that there is another girl he likes batter. He cannot, in honor, break hit
engagement because ha has changed
bit fancy. He mutt tell his finance
the truth, and ask for his release,
which few girls under those circumstances would not he only too willing

gentleman of family and fortune, well
on in bit sixties, came into the neighborhood, fell in iovt witb tbe young
lady, and was accepted us her future
husband. She had been but slenderly
educated, and, in view of the intended
change in her social position, her lover expressed a wish that she should
give up her olerkahip, and should .endeavour to "improve ber mind" on
lines which he laid down. This was
done, but difficulties arose, and filially
tbe gentleman broke off the match', at
the tamt time intimating that he w ish-
ed to act liberally in the way of pecuniary compensation, and inviting the
lady to suggest an amount. She replied by a carefully-drawn bill of
charges on commeroiallv-ruled paper,
demanding to much tor larcerated affections, no much for loss of the expected position, eo much for expenditure in tbe preparation of her trousseau, Ac, and, finally, " to lots of

My. P. A. 0. Farrill of Spokane,
ivho bat bad considerable experience
in mining matters, ln,.writing to the
Vancouver World describing thn min
jug properties iu the northern Koute-
nays declares that the Slocan and East
Kootenay posseses the richest lead and
silver ores ever yet'disci vered. Mining
men in Colorado have told him that no
tuch dtpotitt of lead and silver ore
have ever yet been found In any quart-
tr of the globe to compare with those
of the Slocan and East Kootenay,
The North Star group of mines at
Kimberly, East Kootenay, he referred
to aa among tlie greatest mines ever
discovered. Tbe Sullivan, another
group of mines close to the North Star
owned by the chief stockholders of the
Le Roi, he was told, would yet rival
tha North Star and the Le Roi as a
wealth-producer, ' All around the
North Star and the Sullivan are da-
potitt of mineral to vast and astonishing that Kimberly is certain to be one
of the foremost mining camps on the
continent. Further south near .Moyie
Lake is tbe St. Eugene group and
other mines; thit will alto make a
4>reat roininf camp.   Th* de-elopmenj;
of this wonderful District of .East
Kootensy entirely depends upon the
building of tbe Crow's Nest Pass Railway. As at present surveyed the line
will past within ten miles ol Kimberly
and right through the St. Eugene
grou-id.      ., ������
There it also a free gold district in
East Kootenay, that of Perry Creek.
Perry Creek is intersected by niinior*
out ledges o( free gold-bdhring quartz,
and with the event of the railway
Perry Creek will be a desirable place
for capital, as well as for imlusuious
workmen; but everything depends upon the quick construction ol the Crow's
Nest Pass Railway. This railway
will open British Columbia to capital,
enterprise and labor more rapidly than
anything else can possibly do.

Attempt to ���.SBiisslimte a King and
Rulers whether of Kingdoms or Republics are equally, liable to die at the
hand ot the assassin. Two attempts
have recently ijeen made one'against
the life of, the King of Italy and the
other against the life of the president
of Uruguay, King Humbert of Italy
accompanied by his aide de camp, General Potnlis Vuglia, was going to witness the Royal Derby, held on the
Campngna near the city of Rome.
When ihe King was driving in an
open carriage through St. John's gate,
his assailant who was waiting for
him rushed up to the carriage in
whicli his Majesty was tested and attempted to stab him. The Kiug
avoided the danger by rising from bis
sea.. The would-be assassin seeing
he liad failed iu his attempt to assassinate the King, threw away hie dagger ami was immediately arrested by
two carbineers., while his Majesty
calmly ordered his coachman to drive
on. His Majesty attended Ihe race
and along with his nephew the Duke
of Aosta witnessed tbe running of the
Royal Derby. His Majesty was loudly
cheered and In reply to numerous congratulations, observed ''Itis only ono
of theT'ttle. adventures of my trade."
The name of the assassin is Acciarito
and he it twenty-four vears old.
The attempt to assassinate President
Borda,. the bead of the Republic of
Uruguay, was made on the streets of
the capital Montevideo as the President, was walking up town. An unknown man met the President in
the street and shot at bim. The President escaped without injury and the
criminnl has been captured, but refuses
to disclose his identity.
It is supposed that political fanaticism was the impelling motive for tho
crime in both cases.
Advice to I'llgrlms.
As a bright light attracts moths to
its flume, so do the riches snd fame of
Kootenay attract thousands of people
anxious to better their fortune.. We
would like to make a few remarks upon
the rush to Kootenay :
Itis true that the district-it a rich
one, but its inhabitants cannot support all the paupers, drones, hoboes
and broken people of America.
It is true, that Kootenay. has plenty
of gold and silver, but it is in the solid
formation and cannot . bo picked up
from tbe roadside like shells from the
ocean's shore.
It is true that there is plenty to do
but every job has more than oue man
for it.
It is true that living is comparatively high and'that the man With only a
uickel or two is strictly out of it,  ,
It it true that fortunes can he made,
but- seldom without capital to start
with or extraordinary luck..
To the pilgrims and tA)nderfeet who
are thinking of coming to this glorious*
oountry we wonld say:
Have niouey in plenty or an assured
situation before you bid- the folks
adieu. If you don't vou may have to
sleep in the street and chew scenery
for breakfast.
Do nor, come out here and expect
that you are smarter than the natives.
Some of the brightest minds on earth
breathe tho osone in Kootenay and it
is hard to keep even with them.
If you have failed everywhere else
do not expect to be any better here,
and you will not be disappointed.
If you are tough and ordered to
leave your community do not come at
all. You will find competition too
If you have little money but plenty
of manhood and are composed of the
same stuff as the trail Waters of thit
great oountry, come along Ton will
win in the end provided you do not
bond yourself to boozereno, cards and
the w-unan in red.���New Denver
