"We tuke pleasure in recommending
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy because
it is praised by all who try it," says
J. W. Cox & Son, druggists, Marsh-
field, Oregon. No one afflicted with a
throat or lung trouble can uso this
remedy without praising it. It always
gives prompt relief. It is especially
valuable for colds as it relieves thc
lunvs, makes breathing easier and aids
expectoration. A cold will never result
in pneumonia when this remedy is
taken aud reasonable care exercised.

The Manitoba School question has
now arrived at a definite stage. One
of two results must come from the
conference now on bund. Manitoba
must either come to terms acceptable
to the minority or refuse to reply a
remedy to what tho Privy Council has
declared to be a grievance. Should
the Manitoba Government accent the
former, the Remedial Bill will not lie
necessary, and if so tliere may be an
excuse offered for voting in favor of
the second rending of tho bill in order
to save the government from defeat,
but we urn not certain that this alternative will bo accepted, the question is
now quickly coming to un issue. We
cannot quite s,* why the Provincial
Government of Manitoba should so
persistently refuse to deal witli the
question, for this obstinacy will certainly prevent tbe feeling of sympathy
Iieing so strong for her if sho is subjected to a coercive measure. Mr.
Greenwuy has expressed his willingness to amend tbe school act and
thereby miking the public schools
wholly secular. This however will lie
strongly opposed by the church, who
��� :''������!��� trust on the remedial bill
��������� .���<������ lining leliof.
While Parliament may apply a
remedy for tlie complaints of the minority without either creating a new
system of seperate schools or invading
the jurisdiction, yet until this decisive
conference closes the right to give relief still rests with the province, und it
is much to be desired that the province
may exercise that right and act in a
conciliatory direction. Then again a
great deal may depend on how the
leader of the opi osition may act in the
matter whether he will forward rather
than deter a solution of the vexed
problem. There can be no doubt that
the government.- with its 18 majority
only, nre anxious to see Manitoba arrange tho matter. Again there is no
doubt that if Mr. Laurier were so inclined, to antagonize a settlement, he
c'iiili'1 tn a frreai measure prevent it.

he says:

The disaster which has befallen the
Italian aims in Ethiopia wus not un-
forseou by shrewd military judges,
who quickly perceived that King Mone-
lek, now Fniperor of Ethiopia, and
direct descendant of Solomon wns not
a Sumee-Ramee King of the Cannibal
Islands, but a man of intelligence with
a defined end in view and a profound
knowledge of the aid to be derived
from the physical resources of his
country, In the mountain fustnosses
he enveloped his invaders, laid seige
to thorn till, by a series of closing-iu
movements, he compelled the Italian
army of Europeans and local "friend-
lies" to retreat, bag and baggage -less

military stores. The Italian General
Baratieri was fully aware of the tactics
of his enemy from sharp experience,
but nevertheless he pooh-poohed them.
Lust summer when in Italy he mounted the capitol, to-duy lie bus been flung
from the Tarpeian Rock,
Italy will probably retire from Abyssinia ; sho has not the resources 10

hitherto untried national army must
remain clouded. Let her lie low, take
a back seat, cultivate friendly and
commercial relations with her neighbour France and so pick herself up hy
degrees. Her catastrophe will

Ox thc 25th of .March, Mr. Semlin ���
in the Provincial Parliament - usked
the Minister of .Mines the following
1. Have the Perry Creek Mining
Co. complied with thc conditions of
their lease?
2. Have other parties applied for n
lease for tho same ground and if so
has it been granted or refused ?
3. li not granted, why not ?
Hon.  Col. Baker replied :    1.    Yes.
2.   Yes.   refused.     3.    Because  the
lease was in force,
I do not know much about the question, but, is the lease "in force" in the
general meaning of that phrase. If it
is it must lie ol an exceptional character, I believe most leases require an
annual amount of wo.ik to be done
upon the ground whicli the lease covers. I do rot really know, but was
thero any work done upon the property
last year, or the year before, or tho
year liefore that, or whon was the
work done I should like someone
who knows the particular*, to answer
that question. I remember last summer conferr ng with the Minister of
Mines on tho subject, and I understood
him to sny such that would imply
that the lease had literallv run out but.
he thought the company would be
permitted to   hold th* ground on some
plea or other,  I forget what it was at
this time.
Then, again, who are the Perry
Creek Mining Co.? I am sorry I am
at present at such a loss for such in
formation, but will learn later���that
they should bo extended such privileges
as these. Why should they be allowed to hold property under mining lease
and not work it when there are otbei
parties, as the Ministers of Mines
affirms, anxious to operate it. I
should hnve thought that the Government as represented through the Minister of Mines, would have been most
anxious to see tbe mines, especially
those held by leases, in operation, and
least of all allow them to be held by
parties who have no intention of
working them. What is the matter?
something surely, if these things are
allowed to continue. Before proceeding further on the subject 1 should
like more information in regard to it,
aqd I should be pleased to receive
some through these columns.   .
A curious instance of different opinions re. metallurgy came under my
notice a few days since. It was u instance of the expressed opinions of
professional metallugists of an ore,
classifying it on the scale of concentrating ores. One of the Western
American smelter managers calls it an
ideal one for concentration and gave
his reasons. On the other hand the
same sample of ore was sent to Mr.
Pellew Harvey and lie said that experience showed that this ore was one
of the very worst classes of concentrating ores. Now which is right and
whose opinion can be relied upon. The
samples I have seen are neither ideal
concentrating ore nor au extremely
difficult ore to concentrate though the
particles of galena, blende antl pyrites
are small, they are discriminate and
can be concentrated by fine concentrations, if of course an ore contain
sufficient antimony to have blended
these metals together then the ore is
capable ol concentration. There is
quite a margin botween the specific
gravities of tho three ores contained, for instance: galena, 1.5; iron
pyrites, 5.0; zinc blende, 4 0 The
silver is contained in the galena only
consequently it is not a bad concentrating ore.
AWj places have some interesting
feature concomitant with their existence, though they may appear ���
causually-to be devoid of all redeeming qualities, and especially so to the
inhabitants of such unfortunate regions they are not so. Every one on
coming to our town mentions what a
picturesque and nice place we have,
this however soon dies away as they
become accustcmed to our grand
scenery and our natural beauty is ultimately lost to them only to be revived by the visitor's admiration of
the mountains. We have all that can

Gold In Situ ot noo In Situ.
Foiv indeed are the countries of tho
world whioh have not supplied the
civilized or tho uncivilized world with
more or less quantities of gold the
ancient aurum. But-and to which
fact its specific value is accounted for ���
in most localities it exists in such
minute proportions that it would bo
only loss of time and money to attempt
to extract it. This however should not
deter us from reeking it iu large paying quantities in terra incognita. The
desideratum is bow and where to seek
it. We think we all know how. It
is the where that troubles most of us,
and it is with regards to the latter
that I should like to he permitted to
make a few remarks. Although some,
and I may say the majority- of the
great discoveries of gold hive bsen
made casually-by inexperienced hands
still there is no one thinf; that, nt the
present time, requires.in a more marked degree tho assistance of that noblest
of sciences���geology--than in the
successful hunting for gold, Let. the
old t;me prospector suy what he may,
but he cannot locate gold in situ,
though of course with his pick, shovel
and pan he may bo moro or less cor-
tectly guided to it now in site, Has
it never occured to you as passing
strange that the source of most of the
gold found in alluvia (or the gold non
in situ) remain undiscovered. Why is
this? It surely has a source. I could
���if it were not useless���enumerate
hundreds of instances iu which gold
has been found iu very paying quantities in alluvium, whose sources are
as yet dark mysteries. This is I believe
due to the totally inadequate system
of searching for it. If you find it in
the river bed, you can if you are a
practical geologist, locate it almost
immediately by the accompanying
gravel found there. Then yon may
ask why have they���the geologists
located the sources of numerous instances you mention. The geologist is
very seldom a prospector. His early
associates totally unfit him for such a
life of hardships that is generally experienced by the prospector and again
the home of tbe geologist is the fossil
age, where there are endless fields for
investigations. But we must not de-
verge irom our primary point, whence
came this gold? I could relate to you
an instance in which the source of a
certain very rich placer gold deposit
was a dark mystery-in fact believed
bad to be, by many���until it was
proved to exist by myself, tbis however would not advantage.
I believe there is no doubt but that
the gold of the world has originated
from the nietainorphic and generally
in veins of quartz which are found
traversing the metamorphic which are
charged with gold in strings, plates,
scales and masses of crystals. Then
gold is either found in these rocks or
is derived from these roeks after they
have through ages become disintegrated aud carried away by means of the
transporting agency of waters. Very
frequently tbe strata which carry the
gold are not distinctly defined or seper-
uted from those strata or parts of
strata, which are wholly barren. To
sum up, it is generally useless for men
inexperienced in the different characters of rocks���where he is likely or
where he is not likely to find a gold
bearing one-to attempt to locate gold
in situ. It is often noticeable that
they will hold tbat such and such
gold found iu some placer diggings has
come from the lime formation, through
which the stream that contains it
happens to be flowing and they will be
hunting in the fissures of white calcareous sprtr for tbe yellow prize. It
cannot come from such a place. It
can and doss come Irom miles, perhaps
many of them, up the stream, in the
(ildor rocks you will find it. It is there,

obtain the prize, though generally very

Marvels of an Oat rii.li'a Stomach.
The post mortem examination of one
of the flock of ostriches owned hy Bar-

capabilities of an ostrich. The ostrich
was dissected by a taxidermist. He
found the following articles in the
bird's stomach: One wooden clothes
pin; the bottom of two beer bottles;
a mouth harmonica, five inches long
and two inehes wide; a ferrule of an
umbrella with a piece ot the stick in it
about four inches long; a metal skate
key, a brass door key, five inches long;
a woman's black horn comb; two
I pieces of coal; a woman's silk handkerchief; three stones about an inch thick,
together with some cabbage, grass,
; lettuce, celery and considerable dirt.
I Strange to say, the ostrich did not die

The attention of Prospectors and Miners is called to the merits of a new
improved apparatus, for testing and smelting various kinds of ores and miner-
a s, also separating and refining base bullion, etc.
Manufactured by a chemist and metallurgist who thoroughly understands
the wants of the assayer, the prospector, the miner, the chemist for laboratory
test; for all furnace work, such as smelting, scorifying, coupelling, fusing in
crucibles, testing of sampling charges, rousting, etc.
This furnace is built in two halves for easy transportation, is complete in
itself, made of steel plate, with east-iron slag and metal spouts, wind supply
pipe and knock-down bottom.
It is of the cupola type, with extension when smelting ores ; capacity 1000
to 5000 pounds per heat; also smaller size, capacity from 100 to -00 pounds'
per heat, according to the character of (res.
The Advantages in Practice are as Follows:
This furnace is constructed by and for a prospector, who requires a serviceable furnace, easily transported over a mountainous country by a pack burro,
that is complete aud ready to be set up at any dump of low grade ores, that
otherwise will uot pay to ship, and make his good pay out of one to two tons
of ore a day.
On low-grade orca picked at the dump, tills little furnace will pay ror Itself every week, besides wages and expenses. Ijet someone else do the risk in
mining, audi stick to a certainity,

The Spokane people are getting
alarmed about the possibility of their
not being able to keep lhe trade of the
southern pun of West Kootenav. From
thnt city conies the following rather
sarcastic comment on the aspiration cf
Winnipeg in matters pertaining lo
West Kootctisy, It remains to lo? seen
whether the business methods ot our
Manitoba friends will not lie 11 littlo
more rapid.   Says the Chronicle:
The innocent alarmists who l.ave
been talking about Winnipeg, Manitoba, "aspiring to secure tbo trade' ol
the British Kooteiiny. mav savo their
fears that Spokane will suffer any
losses from the cause for a long tin e
to come. Saturday, March 14th the
Chronicle published uu account of tho
explosion in tho Center Star mine nt
kossliiml. On Friday, March 20th
dispatch drifts out from
telling witli delightful naivete of the
"explosion of powder while thawing at
Itossluiid gold mines in the remote
northwest." It is left to the combined
judgment of all men who have visited
both towns to decide whicli is the
more "remote" from this great throb

is a striking illustration of how very

however, from tho constant mention of
my bumble name that it is intended as
a reply to a former communication of
mine in which I stated that the salmon taken in the Columbia riverine
useful for food. I may be wrong, hut
still I had an excellent reason fur

I ipiito agree with Mr. Bott that

This courteous gentleman is progressive if nothing else. His lirst letter of

doubt, will toll of tboouse with which
tlie embryo salmon can be dispacbed
