on which  some mining companies are
formed, as follows:
"Attfiiitlon is directed to the principle upon which some mining co'mps-
nies ure formed. The system of capitalizing slightly developed mineral
claims for large sums of money and
selling the stock at a small percentage
of the par value is, in case of the liquidation of the company, fraught
with serious consequences to the
holders and in any event prejudicial to
the proper development of the mine.
Ths laws of British Columbia are
opposed to a company selling its stock
at, n discount, yet these have been
evaded in the cane of some mining
ventures, Discontinuance of this
practice and compliance with the pro*
viiicial laws will be some guarantee
lhat companies nre funned for the purpose ef working the mines instead of
unduly enriching the promoter* of the
schemes. The incoming council
should look into this mutter, and, if
necessary, bring it to the notice of tho
provincial government with the viewf
of remedial legislation.
'���That a sanguine view of the future
of British Columbia is warranted may
he judged by the high standing of our
provincial stocks and municipal debentures in the financial market*."

Crow'. Neat Railway.
It is desirable tliut the Kootensy
country should have railway connection with the railway system of Can*
ada and at ���an early day. A railway
is already in operation between Medicine Hut and Lethbridge, and the ultimate aim of thi. line is to proceed by
way of the Crow's Nest Pass into the
Kootenay country. The most certain
way of etiusuriitg the construction of
the continuation i* to push on the de*
velopiuent ol the mining region.
The C.P.R. management are not ul.'
familiar with the prospects for mining
in British Columbia, and we may be
sure tliut a - soon as the development
has reached a stage that promise* a
considerable freight traffic it* powerful co-operation will be obtained in
providing tlin Heeded railway service.
The construction of such a Hue will
not be without its difficulties, but the
prospective traffic shonld fully justify
its boi ig undertaken The linking of
the mining regiou to the general railway system of Canada would be a
guarantee that Us trade would not be
lost to our own country. Mining die*
tricts are usually de|-endent ou outside
districts for machinery, ull kinds of
manufactures and fuod supply. As
development proceeded, therefore,
there should be a brisk freight traffic,
both in and out Whether its volunio
justifies an immediate prosecution of
the enterprise is a question that the
railway authorities should consider in
sn optimistic spirit. The future of
the mines is not conjectural and the
arrival of the railway would to a
great extent hasten the development
which is all that is needed to amply
justify the undertaking of the building
of the road, Tbe Crow's Nest railroad
must be regarded as hu important
brunch of the Canadian railway system. - Toronto Globe

Extension of Time.
In consequence of the lateness of the
season and the depth of snow upon
the higher mountains Col. Baker hus
taken steps to secure an extension of
time for the performance of assessment
work. The subject was dincussed by
the executive council last week and
that body has ordered as follows: "It
shall be lawful for the gold commissioners throughout the province to
extend tlie time for a period of sixty
days, to date from the 17th day ol
July, 1896, for the completion of I
assessment work on such mineral
claims as the gold commissioners have
good cause tc believe are at this time
inaccessible, in consequence of the
depth of snow which covers the said
claims."

says: "Whenever I am troubled with
a pain in the stomach or with diarrhoea I use Cbatnberlaiu's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. I have
used it for yeurs, kuow it to be a reliable remedy, and recommend it to

Aa late-eating Experiment.
We take from the Centralblatt fur
Oesterreicbungarisshe Papier-industrie
the following account of a curious experiment :
A very interesting experiment wus
made on April 17 last at Messrs. Men-
_el A Company's paper and wood pulp
.manufactory, at Elsenthal, in order to
������certain what was the shortest space
of time in which it was possible to
convert the wood of a standing tree
Into paper, and the latter into a journal ready for delivery. This experiment ie of extreme importance, because
it show* what rapidity can be attained
by tbe concurrence of practical machines and favourable condition*.
Throe trees were felled in a forest
near the establishment at thirty-five
minutes past seven in the presence of
two of the owners of the manufactory
and a notary whom they bad culled
upon to certify as to tbe authenticity
of the ex|-eriment. These trees were
carried to the manufactory,where they
were cut Into pieces 12 inches in length
which were then decorticated and split
The wood thus prepared wss ntterward
railed by an elevator to the five defl-
brator* of the works. The wood pulp
produced by these machines was then
put Into a vat, where it was mixed
with the necMiary material*. This
process finished, the liquid pulp was
���ant to the paper machine. At thirty-
four minute* past nine in the morning,
the first sheet of paper w��i finished.
The entire manufacture had thn* consumed bat one hour and fifty-nine
minute*.
The owners of the manufactory, accompanied by the notary, then took a
few (beets to a printing office situated
at a distance of about two and a half
mile* from the works. At ten o'clock
��� copy of tbe printed journal was in
the hands of the party; so thnt it had
'ttik->n two hours and tweuty-five mill*
titirs tu convert tlie wood of a standing
tree iuto a journal ready for delivery.
!    It   must   be added that, during the
course   of   the manufacture, there occurred   a   few     interruptions   which
! might be avoided ut another time, and
1 i.iHt, in tlte opinion of the two iiiitnu-
I fttctureiM, had   it   uot   been   for this,
I twenty   minutes   might     have   been
' gained. ���Mouiteur de la Papeterie,
' Aiming the numerous persons who
have been cured of rheumatism by
Chamberlain's Pain Balm, mention
.should be made of Mrs. Emily Thome,
of Tultiilu, Wash., who says:   "I hnve
! i.o.ui- been itble to procure any medicine
t hut would relievo nie of rheumatism
like Chamberlain's Pain Balm. I
have also used it lor lame back with
great success. It is the best liniment
I have ever usu.1, and I take pleasure
in rccommendinc. it to my friends."

A Nice Distinction.
A case of immense importance to
people who suffer from insomnia and
the cats that cause i' has been decided
liy Justices Cave and Willis, says the
Glasgow Herald. Tlie law declares
that no man may kill his neighbor's
cut, no matter what crimes it may
have committed in murdering sleep
and chickens, and despatching currier
pigeon* on their last and longest journey. The cat may be put under restraint if it is foolish enough to come
to hand. Then its owner must pay up
or do without his cat, which late the
majority of owners would prefer. A
more efficacious way was to set a trap
or luy meat about the yard, Then il
tlie cut iu tresspassing became mixed
up with the trap, or if the meat disagreed with him, his host argued,
reasonably enough, that the cat wns
not invited to come into his yard, and
if it chose tu drop in must accept the
entsi'taintiieut provided. But the law
prohibits the laying of poisoned meut
"in or upon any land," except (or the
purpose of destroying "rats, mice, and
other small vermin." In this particular case the respondent had placed
poisoned meat in his pigeon house.
Their Lordships held that "land"
incus neatly everything, and they
sent buck the case with orders to convict. If the statute had only said
"place" instead of "land" the pigeon-
fuueier would have gone free. For
while "lund" means nearly anything
"place" generally means nothing.

A HANDY PROSPECTOR'S FURNACE.
The attention of Prospectors aud 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, tbe miner, the chemist for laboratory
test; for all furnace work, suoh as smelting, scorifying, coupelling, fusing in
crucibles, testing of sampling charges, roasting, etc..
This furnace is built in two halves for easy transportation, is complete in
itself, made of steel plate, with cast-iron slag and metal spouts, wind supply
pipe and knock-down bottom.

that is complete and ready to be net up at any dump of low grade ores, that
otherwise will not pay to ship, and make his good pay out of one to two tons'
of ore a day.
On low-e-riule ore. picked at tho damp. thi. little furuaee will par for It-'
self every week, besides wages and expenses.     Ijet someone else dothe risk in
mining, and stick to a certainity.

Ottawa, July lil. ��� The following is Ladies and itentlemeu, be alive to
I Mr; L'liirier's cabinet officially an- your own interest. There has recently
r nop, ,'fld : I heen discovered, and is now for sole by
lYi-siiVut of the council, Wilfrid the undersigned, a truly wonderful
Lull ier
**IIX��X��w   SEXVH.
Mr. A. 0. Mitchell-Innes hits recently purchased tlte Hidden Treasure cop-
]ier   mine   from Mr. McNeish and also
bonded the Giant silver-lead mine adjoining it.     The latter property is one
that has had some amount of developing work done on it for some years, a
tunnel   litis   been  driven to strike the
vein ''in depth" for a distance of .100ft.
whether this wus far enough or not is
not yet proven, aa they  ditl not strike
it  though   passing through considerable   iniiierulizetl rock, some of which
will run 40 per cent, lead and 15 ozs. of
silver.     Mr.   McNeish shipped 5 tons
of  this ore  to tlto Trail creek smelter
this spriug and even at that disadvantage he obtained a margin iu his favor
This  speaks  highly for the property
and  if the reduction works here were
only started, it is not uure��� souablo to
suppose that it could be worked on a
larger  scale  at a much larger profit.
The  Hidden  Treasure is well known
and   hardly requires any further comment.    Some of the ore taken out and
shipped to smolter averaged i)7 per cent
copper   to  the  ion with seine gold, a
email amount.     It is understood that
Mr. Mitchell-Innes will commence further developing work almost imniedi
ately.     On   the  same mountain and
very near to these mines Mr. D.ilmudge
has   located and purchased oilier copper properties for an Eastern syndicate
In fact theexcitement in the neighborhood   of   Spillemacheeoe  is becoming
quite intense and people are beginning
to look for tho old times again.
Mr. Geo. Bury has taken another
journey to the McMnrdo country accompanied by a United States milling
engineer, who has taken the place of
Mr. McNamura, Pro torn.
Mr. Geo. DeWolf is now at Field
opening up the Monarch mine on a
large scale. Ho thinks he will soon
be in a position to ship 25 tons of ore
daily.
Mr. Dolinade has sold some property
at Ottertail to an Eastern company for
quite a large sum. It is argentiferous
galena, which tuns very high in silver
between 20 and ilO ozs. to the ton,
the veins are however somewhat
small, averaging 4 inches.

London, July lil.-The proceedings
of the Democratic convention interests
political financial circles here. The
concensus ol opinion among leading
high-class weekly papers, such as the
Speaker. Spectator and Economist is
that the victory of the eilver men is a
serious danger to the union. They
declare that though the Democratic
party will be wrecked, sound money is
sure of ultimate triumph. There will
be a long period of unrest. The immediate effect of the strength shown by
the silver men will be heavy gold shipments from the Slates for months, and
a paralysis of traae, many investors
withdrawing their capital under the
fear, however improbable thai the
Democrats might win.
The Speaker emphatically says it
does not believe in the possibility of a
second secession by a confederation of
the silver states. Although tbe Democratic machine is meanwhile out of
gear, bye and bye it will get a new
and better creed.
