Chas, F. Law, the British Columbia
commissioner, is working lik i a Trojan
getting the exhibits in position. He
has a great deal of work before him for
0110 pair of bauds and is greatly pressed
for help. But the provincial government in their wisdom have decided
that Commissioner Law can do it all.
And whether he can or not he has to
do it. A glance would be sufficient to
a person of ordinary observation to tell
that, Mr. Law wants help; and if that
help is not. forthcoming the government
will be to blame if the British Columbia exhibit does not show up as it
should.
Mr. Law was seen and questioned
by the Times correspondent. Ho was
unpacking the large coal specimens
from the Union and New Vancouver
coal mines and placing them in position
in the Mines and Mining Building,
You seem very busy, Mr. Law?
Cannot you get help?
Mr. Law went on working and
appeared not to hear the question. The
question was again put. The reply
came: "I am in the employ of the
government and it is not for me to say
anything about tlie subject." Though
Mr. Law was non-committal in his
reply the manner of reply suggested lo
tho questioner that that gentleman
thought more than be cared to say.
Mr. Law spoke with more freedom
ou the exhibits. Be said: "The
largo coal exhibits will be the linest of
the kind in the building. It is true
that our other mineral specimens are
small, compared with the specimens
from other parts, but I think that they
are large enough to give a good idea of
the mineral wealth of the Pacific province. I saw the British Columbia
fruit specimens, which have been hi
coll storage in Chicago during the
winter. That was tho other day.
Some of them were decayed, but a
large number are in good condition.
I think that we can select from them
specimens which will do us great

table in the horticnlaral buil ling. The
straw and grain exhibits have not yet

A Terrible German Truffeily.

recalling in some respects tho murder

was ordered to make two large archways in her Chinese wall. Ontario's
commissioner did not like this. The
l.iillldate went forth and ha I to be
obeyed, and there is someonu with aggrieved feelings.
The wall detracts from the mineral
exhibit of N'wS.uth Wales and the
Commissioners of that colony say a
great deal and think more Tho New
South Wales mineral exhibit will perhaps be the finest in the building.
That colony is spending a large sum of
money in advertising her mineral
resources, She has not only got
beautiful specimens of the (-rude ore.
but her specimens of ore products are
among the linest. l:i this court England exhibits entirely 111 mineral products, with the exception of several
line specimens of Sjiith Wales coal.
Space has been allotted to the Northwest Territories. It is small and a.i
yet there are no exhibits ill position.
Nova Scotia, New Brunswick ami
Prince Edward Island are not showing
ill this building.
Manitoba is having her exhibition
all by itself; it. does not form part of
the Dominion display. At the Hotel
Manitoba, ou Sroney avenue, outside of
the grounds proper, Manitoba has
arranged her wares. The exhibit cannot be pronounce I upon, as it is not in
position. Manitoba's display is certainly side-tracked and will 03 33011
only by such guests as stay at the
hotel or visitors who chance to drop
around that way. In the agricultural
court the Dominion government exhibits wheat from the experimental farm
in Manitoba, This action of the federal government does not appear to be
appreciated bv the Manitobans.
The action of Manitoba in separating
herself from the other provinces anil
tho undercurrent of petty bickerings
which manifests itself has cause 1 the
broad-minded to think that Canada
would have done better bad she taken
hold of the exhibit as a Dominion
undertaking instead of having the
provinces exhibit separately. Ill the
Canadiou building, a plain an 1 neat
structure, the different provincial commissioners   have offiues,     Quebeo   is
slew motion of sound and the rapid
motion of the beat waves, whose
motion is slowest (that is slower than
that of light). And it would appear
that the wonderful adaptability which
electricity shows for every kind of
work is due entirely to the position
which its rate of motion occupies in
the scale of the energies. It would
also appear that the reason this wonderful agent lay dormant for so many
ages, and is even now only partially
developed, is, very largely, at any rate,
because we have no sense which corresponds to the particular periods of
vibration comprised within the electrical range."

was walking through St. James Park
at midnight last night on his way to
his homo in Downing street. The
accuracy of the report of the! Pall Mall
Gazette is double I. It is probable thill
the story is b.isel 0.1 the fact that a
man who is now in custody on the
charge of carrying a revolver on a
public thoroughfare had in one of his
pockets a note-book containing a number of entries d'tailing the recent
movements of Gladstone. Fr.sober
will be arraignel shortly, ami his
object in making these entries will be
learned, if possible. T. e article ill the
Pull Mall Gazette, cause! much excitement among the friends and supporters
uf Gladstone, and many inquiries from
various parts of the country have Ikvh
made its to the truthfulness of the
story.

Washington, D.C., April 27��� "Congress will bo convened in special session between September 1st, ami loth
at latest. If there should liu any
necessity for calling Congress together
before that time it will be done, but I
see no reason for such action at this
time."' In substance this was the
language used by President Cleveland
yesterday. Ho was addressing Congressman ICIIgoro of Texas and several
correspondents in conversation. "Have
you any objection to having this
statement made public V" asked Kilgore.
"No object ions whatever," returned
the President. "Fact is, I think it is
only fair to the business men of the
country lo know that the present tar,II
is to bo changed, and that it will be
done just as soon us careful and conservative action can be taken." This
IS the first direct and authentic statement the President lias yet maud in
reference to this matter.

Montreal, April 27.-Canada will be
represented at the opening of the
Chicago World's Fair by Hon. Messrs
Bowell, Onimot and Angers. The
three Ministers leave for Chicago today. Mr. Bowell goes as acting
Premier; Angers as Minister of Agriculture, to disburse tlio Government
appropriation of (150,000, and Oulmet
as Minister of Public Works, to supervise the erection of the Canadian
| pavilion on the exhibition grounds.
When this work is donq Ouimet will
proceed to tho   Pacific coast to inspect
F. N. Chadbourne, a conservative
and experienced mining man, reporting
to the Srokane Miner on the conditions
and prospect in t he Slocan country says
tho ores in that district are not in
bunches or bodies, but show chutes of
ore, while the veins are regular. Tho
country abounds in porphyries dykes,
l he formation being slate veins por-
pbyritic and high grade. There are
twenty mines whose possible j early
output is estimated at 20.000 tons ��nd
a total valuation of i5o,0C0,t00. Tho
average, profit per ton is estimated at
s40, which, with proper appliances and
shipping facilities, may be increased to
���iSO per ton. The country has been
somewhat over-boomed. No artificial
stimulus is required, us the mines aro
of great value and fully able to stand
on iheir own merits, There will be a
rush of prospectors and real estuto
dealers. Among the most promising
points in Kaslo. Prospecting has not
been thorough ; many of the claims
are in good bauds and will be developed. Nature has concentrated tho >ro
to that reduction works are not a
necessity. The Washington mine lias
already shipped about 1,000 tons of
high-grade ore with a handsome profit,
Other mines have shipped a less quantity of ore,but all show a decided margin of profit.

Commencing'
DUCHESS or MY
Canal and other schemes now being
projected indicate that, development in
East Kootenay this year will not be
behind that of West Kootenay. That
a powerful American syndicate will lie
actively engaged getting out coul before
tail, is admitted, and other tangible
work is also under consideration. In
view of this the following contribution
to the descriptive literature of the
great interior by A. O. Scraggy, contracting freight agent of the C.P.R.
will be read with interest :
I went over the C inadian Pacific to
Golden, B.C., and from there took a
sleigh with Capt. P. P. Armstrong,
manager of the Upper Columbia Navigation and Tramway Company, to
Spiliimacheene, fifty miles away. Then
we went by wagon to Wasa, 100 miles:
then we took a sin ill row-boat to
Port Steele, and from there on to Jennings, Montana, rowing the whole
distance.
TUB BAST KOOTENAY COUNTRY
is  a  wide, rich   country,  extending
along   the   Upper  Columbia   to   the
north and tlio Kootenay   southward
across the boundary into Montana.    I,
is a fine farming and grazing country,
the valley being from five to ten miles
wide, while tlu   mountains on each
side have several rich mines.     The
country   has  bco.i  settle! for 2.) or 80
years, but it was inaccessible until the
Canadian Pacific was built.     Now it
is   accessible  from  the main  line by
means of steamers  which run on the
Upper Columbia river from Golden to
the lakes at its so..rce, and a wagon
road runs from Golden to a point ten
miles below  Fort Steele, while trails
reach the different settlements.     Tho
Columbia   rises   in  some   springs  in
what is known as Canal Flat, only u
mile from where the Kootenay i'iows
by from its source in a, iiuulow iu the
L;auchoil r.tnge of the Rocky mountains.     The Kootenay fbws into the
Columbia  700 or Hit) miles down the
latter river at Robson.     Some five or
six years ano a canal was built to connect the two rivers ut Canal Flat and
was expects! to give boar, communication   between  them, but  it is out of
repair.   An appropriation of S2,f)bU is
expected to put it in repair this year,
so that it can bo used by  ligh   draft
boats on the two rivers.     It is just a
little short of a mile long and  has a
lock midway, because there is a fall of
about ten feet toward the  Columbia.
Forty-five miles lower down the Kootenay than this canal is  Foil  Steele,
the principal trading point of  East
Kootenay.
The mines of this district are said
to be very rich in gold, silver  anil
lead; in fact, this is the first part of
the Kootenay country where gold was
discovered.     The country is full ol
prospectors, and more aro  going in.
The development of the mines is very
easy, for they are all in tho side hills,
so that the ore can be quarried and no
tunneling is necessary.   Thunder Hill
Mining Company is developing a group
oi mines, of which the Thunder Hill is
the principal, si'uated about 050 feet
above the level of the Upper Columbia
lake.   It is reached by tramway, about [
mine, about 25 miles west of Fort
Steele in the Selkirk range, is said to
be the largest body of valuable oro
ever discovered in any country. It is
a solid body of ore ilii feet wido, nnd is
very rich. The discoverer sold it to
Montreal parties for S4U,C00* and they
have locate! all the country around
and are getting in men and machinery
to develop it. There is other development going on, and a good deal of
work will be done this year.
The easiest way into the country is
by train to Golden, where connection
is made with the steamer Duchess, a
finely appointed little boat with accommodation fur twenty-live cabin and
eighty deck passengers. The trip is
made from Golden in daylight to the
head of navigation on the Columbia
at the canal. The traveler passes the
Rockies ou one side and the Selkirks
ou the oilier, both rising to verv high
altitudes, often as high us 10,000 feet.
The river and its tributaries are full
of trout, salmon, and ling, and the
mountains are full of game, such as
mountain sheep, deer, elk, lynx, cay-
otes, ,.1-airie chickens, partridges, blue
grouse, quail and sni e, Ample opportunity is offered sportsmen at any of
the ranches along the valley near the
steamer landings to stop ovor night oi
as long as they please, and the settlors
arc very hospitable and treat strangers
with (rreat consideration.
One of tho principal points of interest is the hot springs ou Sinclair creek
bout (in miles from Golden, at an
elevation of about 3,500 feet above the
sea level. They are at the head of a
deep canyon right in the heart of the
Rocky Mountains. It is claimed by
the Indians and old settlers that the
curative qualities of the springs are
wonderful, for -.hey have been tried on
rheumatism and skin diseases with
great success. We met people on the
way to camp out at the springs,
though a man named McKay hud u
fine ranch within half a mile whero
the people can slop. The owner of
the springs intends to build a wagon
road this year from the steamer lauding, und will have to build a suspension bridge across tho canyon at the
height of 1,000 feet and a quarter of a
mile long, including the  approaches.
Minora, dephaon & Wheeler.
We havo received u circular from
this firm alluding to maty points of
interest in connection with their doings
and what they are prepared to do
Tbev sum up by stating that one of
the firm will be here in May i and that
Mr. Wheeler has had tho honor of
being appointel correction surveyor lo
the New Westminster land district by
the Minister of the Interior.
Sad Accident.
Gn Monday afternoon as Mr. Stewart, bridge foreman at S;oney Creek

of the bust ground of thep.acermining
property in his own name, and a
friend of his took another 200ft.,
which, after recording, he sold teRodney for $25. It the then appeared that
Rodney then obtained some other parties to interest themselves in the property, and eventually sold the claims,
with huts, tools Humes, rights etc. to
them ; the property in tools etc. being
valued at $1,010. Alter this Rodney
hud put a notice in the paper, stating
that the partnership existing between
himself and Or. Rolls was dissolved.
It did not appear that the Dr. had derived any benefit from the sale of the
property, nor had any account been
rendered to him. He naturally, fancying himself interested iu the matter,
brought the suit. The issuo to be
determined was this : "In reviewing
the case the Judge explained the law
to the jury, and most ably showed
them that a mining court was not
only a court of law but also a court of
equity and that this matter was not
fully understood.     Hence, said Judge

the miner is unversed in law terms,
and meanings that may enter into nr-
rangonients, if dealing with sharp
parties, hat may be prejudicial to
himself; also on the ether hand, many
go into mining ventures on the representations of thu owners of the property
and huing ignorant of mining matters,
are therefore dependant ou the good
faith and honesty of their mining partners who aro working the claims. The
mining court here steps in, in such
cases, and arrives at the intentions of
the parties, dealing with the matter
not as case of common law, but one oi
equity and justice. Judge Bole emphatically pointing out that in no other
dealings was there such need of honor,
honesty and fair dealings, as there
was in mining matters. The jury,
afte a short absence, returned to the
court and unanimously lound thut there
was a dissolution of partnership, and
found for the plaintiff, Dr. Rolls.
This is an important case bearing on
the rights of outside investors, and the
finding of the court gave universal
satisfaction.
