A complaint has lieen made to the
Dominion Express Co. regarding tha
selling of fruit by the news agents ou
the trains to Chinamen, thereby defrauding the Express Co, of their
charges and enabling the Chinamen to
sell frail much cheaper than onr merchants, thereby injuring the business
of the latter who have to pay the express charges on all fruit imported and
run ihe risk of its being in good condition when arriving here. It. cat*
easily be seen the merchant* can not
compete witb the Chinamen who obtain their goods by stealth, and we
are glad to know that steps are being
takeu towards putting a stop to this
fraudulent practice.
The efforts of any newspaper to
build up a town is practically nullified
unless it is backed up by the businessmen. A stranger turns from the new*
columns of a paper to its advertising
pages, and if he fails to find there the
business card of the merchants and
professional firms, be comes to the
conclusion that the publisher Is not
appreciated, in which esse it ia a good
place for him to keep clear of. No
town eyer grew without the active
assistance of its newspaper, Nor cap
papers grow and build up their localities without tbe assistance of th*
town. Business men should realise
this and remember that in giving support to tbe newspaper they are not
only building up their own business,
but helping to support that which is
steadily working for the benefit of the
whole community.
Two mining deals have been consummated this week. Mr. Clohecy,
who has been here for some time looking np properties in the McMurdo district, has purchased the Crown Point
claim ou McMurdo creek and the J.P.
on Vermont creek, from Messrs. Bury
and Comiskoy, for an influential
American syndicate. They are good
silver-lead properties ulso carrying
gold. Developinju-t work has been
commenced on both claims with %
light force. Mr. Clohecy went v-es|
ou Wednesday and will return in about
ten days, wheu the work will be carried on on a much larger scale apd ft
is hoped that before long they will bo
lu a position to ship oro. There it
only one thing necessary to make
Golden an important mining centre,
and that is the operation of tin* smelter. There is uot a question of a doubt
about there being enough ore in the
country to keep it running, all that il
required is a start and ihe question
that is now agitating the minds of the
people of the community is: When
will that start be made?

An Interview with the Yale-
Cariboo Member.
Mining Record: The view which
confronts me as I wend my way
towards -Sohuhum," the Victoria
residence of Hewitt Bostock, Isent upon interviewing the Member-elect for
Yale-Cariboo is one not easily to be
surpassed for beauty even in British
Columbia, where the only compliment
that can he ur--ed against the scenery
is that there is ton much of it. Across
the straits that grand Olympian range
lies bathed in.the soft hues of tbe setting sun, each snow-clad peak crowned
with a coronet of gold, while away
-over San Juan, Mount Baker proudly
rears his hoary head above the mist
which shrouds his purple foot hills,
veriest majesty amongst mountains.
Victoria.in addition to her niagnifieeut
surroundings, can boast a goodly show
of "desirable family residences," and
not the least attractive amongst them
is that. of Hewitt Bostock. No one
Would think the house was only two
, j ears old to look at it. But vegetation
is of raPid growth iu these latitudes,
and the .shrubs and Mowers, to say-
nothing of the tennis ground adjoiuing
it, have ,,a .sturdy, veteran air about
tbem which , quite belies their youth.
I shall .bojlortynate if I secure an interview, a* Mr. ;Bqstock leaves tonight for Ottawa, but it is my only
chance, and knowing that this issue of
the Mining Record would be incomplete without a sketch of the "man of
the hour-* up country, I summon up
that courage whioh is currently supposed to characterize wielder: of the
pen no less than of thu sword, nnd
���titling all misgiving I press 'he electric button.' Fortune favors the brave,
for Mr. Bostock does the rest. A insn
with "straight as a line" written upon every feature of bis face, of medium
height, with strong, thoughtful brow
and penetrating eye greets ine with infinite courtesy. He cau give me ten
minutes though others are waiting to
see him, so I at once get down to
business by stating mr errand. The
difference between the interviewer and
tbe interviewed at once becomes apparent���one haa far greater modesty than
tbe other.
80011,   howevor,   we   are  chatting
pleasantly enough, and  in the course
of  conversation I learn that Mr. Bos-
���took  ie an Englishman by birth, the
son of "rich but honest" parents.   His
father made a fortune aa a broker on
tha London  Stock Exchange, which
tbe ion  in due course inherited.   He
waa  born  on .May 31st, 18(14, at the
Hermitage, Waltham Heath,  Epsom,
whioh  he still owns, near the world-
famed  Derby  race track, and he was
educated by private tutors at home. In j
188-   he  matriculated at Trinity Col*,
lege, Cambridge, taking the full three 1
years'  oourse at  the university, and,
graduating with mathematical honors
in  1885, taking  hie M.A. degree the,
same year. ! He thou read for tbe bar |
and  waa oalled at  Lineolii. Inn in
1888. I
I "And when did you first visit B.C.,
.Mr. iiostock?" I ask.
j "That same year," is the reply. "I
rrok a tour round the world, and camo
1I1 ns way eu route for Australia, China
anil Japan."
I    "Was, that when vou bought your
ranch ut Ducks?"
"Yi'H* I liked tho country immensely
nnd laought it hud enormous possibilities before it. I bought the Ducks
i-'i ch witli a view of spending a por-
t ion uf the year on it, but not with the
i'i.'U of settling definitely in the Province- that, like everything else, wus a
mm ter of evolution, und came about
*.'r"liiiillv. On my return to England
I got iinii'i'ied to Miss Cowie, -laughter
oi' Hugh Cowie, Q C, Chancellor ol
Durham, and brought my wifo out to
Ducks, ihis time tn route for Alaska
for our wedding trip. We both liked
the country, aud I found it improve on
"And what caused you definitely to
decide upon leaving England und settling iu British Columbia. You must,
with your position and means, have
found much to interest and attract you
in the old countryV"
' No doubt," Mr. Bostock replied
with a smile, "there are few places for
a man of leisure and independence
more enjoyable than England, but a
younger country offered special attractions to me. I think my decision to
reside delinitely in British Columbia
and cast in my lot with the Province
may have been largely influenced by
the experience I gained during my
association witb Geoffry Drugs (uow
M.P. for Derby), who was then secretary of the Labour Commission, and
in whose work I took a very keen interest. I visited British Columbia in
each of tha yeurs 1890-91-92 and made
various investments in different parts,
but it wus not until 189!) that I finally
niu.l.i up my mind to live over here
"You started The Province newspaper, did you not, Mr. Bostock?"
"Yes. I hud already formed the
idea that there was room for a journal
of that description in the west, and as
I was fortunate enough to meet with
kindred spirits, whose views and
principles coincided with my own, I
was quite willing to back the project
financially, and have not much fear of
the paper's success. I think people
have already recognised its value."
"Aud what led you to adept politics
as a career?"
"Oh! 1 hat seemed to come in the natural order of things, aud wheu a candidate -was wanted to contest Yale-
Cariboo, in the Liberal interest, I gladly accepted the imitation 10 stand, for
I felt 1l1.1t the number of men who
could spare the time and money to
canvass no large a constituency must
of necessity be limited, and I was
therefore ready to do what I could for
the cause."
"Whicli you have very much at
"Which I have very much at. heart,
as you say. It wan very hard work
and tbe amount of ground I had te
cover was enormous. Tlie constituency is not fur short of 210,000 square
miles in extent, -about us large ss the
whole of Fruuco, and the facilities for
getting about in some parts of it are
none too grant, - but I think I uiaung-
ed 10 see ns many of tlie electors as
cculd be seen aud lo hold as many
meetings as possible. The peoplo were
exceedingly kind ami I very greatly
appreciated the way they received me,
seeing thut I cume amongst them as a
total stranger."
"Your victory over Mr. Mara seems
to have been very popular up country."
"I think it was,���though this. I
fancy, was largely due to my oppou
eul's unpopularity. To a great extent
my strength was due to his weakness,
aud I do not ascribe the result to any
personal merit on my part."
'���The Victorians, judging by the re
ception they gave you oil Saturday,
seemed highly delighted too."
"Yes. indeed. I had no idea that
they had anything of the sort iu store
for me and felt quite overwhelmed by
the ovation and all the kind thiugs
that were Said to me."
"I suppose the future of Kootenay
as a mining country is assured."
���'I don't think thero is auy doubt
about it. Everything points in that
direction and I fancy before very long
the attention of milling men from all
parts of the world will be centered
upon British Columbia."
"You represent au important constituency Mr. Bostock."
"I do. I am quite aware of the responsibility it involves, but I um do-
teriuined to do justice to die trust
confided in me by the electorate though
I do not flutter myself that I shall lie
upon a bed of roses."
But time is up and I have to take
my leave. This I did with the firm
conviction that Yule-Cariboo is to be
congratulated upon its choice iu having selected a high-principled, disinterested, absolutely reliable representative, who, come what may, means
to do his duty. Tlie Liberal party
will be strong indeed if it has many
men of the stamp of  Hewitt Bostock.

the raft went to pieces snd they lost
