was defeated in the House of Lords this
afternoon. Although quite unimportant iu itself, lhe defeat wna indicative
ot the growing discontent. The incident arose from the question whether a
model of the new War Office sliould be
made and exhibited. Lord Lansdowiie,
the Foreign Secretary, refused to entertain this proposition, but on division
the motion was carried by 41 votes,
against 20. The announcement of

(From tlie Victoria Colonist.)
Hon. W. C. Wells returned from n
visit tu the Kootenny on Thursday.
The Chief Commissioner of Xvands nnd
Works made the trip foi- the purpose
of arranging certain details in regard
to contracts recontly lot for road making in that district.
He informed a Colonist reporter
that lie fouud the contractors iu hII
cases pushing work along at a. satisfactory rate. At Revelstoke a road is
being built which will give access to
tlie Big Bend country, by skirting ihe
rivor for nine miles around a bad
stretch of broken water, where connection will be made wilh a steamer,
now under construction, which is being
subsidized by the Government, and
whiob will ply on the upper river as
far as Death Rapids. The importance
uf this road and steamboat service
may be estimated when it is considered
that every pound of freight, carried into
thut country at preseut pays atoll of 14
cents. It is hoped that the road will
be completed and the steamer ready
for business soon enough to carry in
supplies to the several mining camps
before the close of navigation.
''By the way" said Mr. Wells,
''while11 think of it, I wish to sny
that the Gjlden Eka has heen under
some misconception iu a recent issue
as to any remarks I may have made
regarding the Coast'Kootenay railway.
Tlie statement attributed to me has
certainly some foundation in the fact
that the Government are considering
the advisability of sending out a corps
uf engineers to determine the feasibility
of a Hope Mountain puss, hut assured
ly not for lhe benefit of any particular
ruilway company. If the Government
were committed to the C. V. R, for

to determine the approximate cost, so

blow to tlo- mining industry, which,
as yet, can only be said to be iu its

A True Bear Story.
One bright July afternoon, in the
summer or 18112, three pro-spectors
might have heen seen with saddle
horses and pack animals', crossing the
Komenay river ferry at Hummers' ll.st.
iu East Kootenay, B C. heading for
the mountains iu the vicinity ofthe
North Star mine, as this gseat strike
hy Joe Bourgeois at tiiat lime caused
a stampede of prospectors to thai locality. After crossing the river wo foi
lowed a read for al.out two miles to
Boh Mnlliew's ranch, here we ascended the high bench that borders the
valley of ihe Kootonay river, our
course from here lying in a northwesterly direction across rolling prairie
like bunch grass foot hills, where roam
iu plenty the white tailed sleer. for
some fifteen miles, to tbo base of the
S.dkirk range. We pur|>osed to make
this our base of supply camp as we
were unable to proceed further wilh

ascent of the range. Thut night,
we sat aro ind the camp lire smoking
our pipes, I proposed that Clans, who

our lives, for as we rounded a clump of
] willows, and uot more tban thirty
yards distant, we came upon a huge
; cinnamon bear, quie'ly f jading, with
��� his head thrust dowu in the tall grass.
These are the most dangerous wild
animals iu the mountains of British
Columbia. It was quite evident he
had uut heard us, as he continued

raised his head (which he did the next
moment/) he would not recognize us
from any of tho natural surrounding
objects. The hear looked straight lo
wards us for possibly half a minute.
We did uot move a muscle, not even
winked. He seemed satisfied that
nothing unusual was iu sight and
agtiin lowered his head j it the grass
and continue I feeding, then wequickty
stepped behind the clump of willows
and divested ourselves of our packs.
Erto said, "Now. I will sboost show
you how doze bear will run " I re-
replied: "You hml better be careful ns

"I ahoost uever saw a bear in my lifel

As we had left our Winchesters in

In our last iss'ie we reported in detail the report jiresenied at the 2Gth
annual meeting of tl.e Imperial llank
of C'Siiasla. The general manager, Mr.
D. It. Wilkie, in making his report,
referred to the establishment of a mini
and Ooverninent assay ofiice in Cnn-
adii, which will Ise read wish considerable interest by our readers and meel
with the unqualified approval uf every
resident in British Columbia. Mr.
Wilkie raid amongst other references
to tlse Hubj -ut:
s* Mns'.ls has b.'en said outside of |snr
liaiiieiit against lhe proposed estab-
lisliineu's, which, however, has been
unanimously approved by the House of
Commons mil by the Senate. Ido nol
concur in the objections which have
heen raise I to those projects, on the
contrary, I am more than ever convinced, from a patriotic, a sentimental
and an economic point of view, lhat no
time should be lost in completing their
establishment. The advantage of attracting to our markets the producers
of nn ever increasing output of gold
and silver, won from our own territory, by the establishment of Govtrn-
ment assay offices is self evident; the
alarm lest we have an over-production
of gold nud silver coin through tha
establishment of a mint, is needless ;
our priwut excellent currency system
will not. he interfere 1 with. Canadian
gold assayed and refined bv Americans
finds a market today in the shape of
U. S. bars or U. 8. coins, whichever is
applied for by the depositors. Why
should a nonunion Government assay
and a Dominion Government certificate
in the shape of an impression nf His
Majesty's head upon each coin and
upon each ingot debase their value or
divert their course. It is not necessary
or ex|.edient that everything in the
shape of gold or silver purchused at the
Government assay offices should be
coined into sjvereigns, or decimal coinage-such is not the course of events
in Great Britain or iu gold-producing
countries such as Au.tralia and the
United States, where Government
mints now exist. Much of our Canadian gold does, under American auspices, find ii s market in the shape of
ngots or bars. Its coinage into sovereigns, half-sovereigns and decimal
pieces will not be compulsory. The
profit ou the coin.ge of silver currency
will jsrohably encourage our Governmeut to devise steps whicli will lead to
tl.e sub.tit.uioi. of our own Canadian
coiiiHge for the large amount of United
Stated silver which now forms the
principal part of tl.e metallic currency

with the mining regions of Canada,

Canadian mines, have bsen expended
in its development, millions that might
havs just as well remained with us
No less than 0,000 deposits were made
in the United States assay office in
Seattle during the year 1900, the great
bulk of thein consisting of Canadian
gold. The assayer in charge, in his
annual report for 1900 ssys: "The
value of the deposits amounted to 113,
747,011. an average or I3.36G.91 to
each deposit. The major portiou of
the bullion handled was of foreign
production, originating from ths placer
mines in the North Wsst Territories
of Canada." Dou't let us hear anything more about opposition to n policy that will open up a wide and
profitable trade for our manufacturers,

A representative of Ihe Era while

took occasion to visit the claim's Sunday and Yvonne, owned by-t he Sunday
Mining Co., ot Waterloo, Que., which
are situated on the banks' of Ottertail

To visit a mine gei-emlly, means a
trip of from 8 to 50 miles into the

these claims the SundayrMining Co
have the finest transcontinental line
within InOO feet of their shaft and one
can step from a Pulmnn car and in 5
minutes easy  walking b*> nt lho entrance of the  workings.   This feature
is one that must not be over looked in
estimating the value of the property,
as the ores can be placed on  tho cars
on the mainline of the C. P. R.  at a
lower cost than nny other  mine we
have ever heard of.    Mr. L. Mercier,
the foreman of the gang of seven men,
who are engaged at present, very kindly
offered to take the Eka man  over the
ground and show him the work which
is beiug done with the idea of proving

���leaves the level ground and follows nu
���easy grade to the level  of the creek.

The oar was crowded. It happened that
only men were standing, with tho exception of �� colored womnn, iu tho iniddlu of
thu car. But at a corner a woman dressed
In the top uf the mode got on. Sho stood
nost tho duor, nnd plainly here was a
chance for some masculine person to bo
gallant. An old beuu, who was seated
near tho center, was obviously fusoinated
by the appearance uf thlsbcnuteousfu.nole
nnd bobbed his bead to catch her eye.
Finally succeeding ho arose, beckoned to
her and murmured:
"Won't you take my Boat, madam!"
Tho colored womnn. standing directly
In front of him, heard this and, turning,
thanked him gratefully as ehe mode a
movement towunl tho viionnt sjince. With
Indignation wrinkling his tinto;! ::osc and
spoiling fur a uioiuont tho gracious air
which hc had assumed, he pushed her
lin.sk, with both liuuds ut hor elbows, as
lie exclaimed:
"Oh, no; not for you, nia'ainl"
His adjustment of expression was rapid
as ho turned once more to her of the hunil-
eoino face and fashionable clothes and
made way. Then, with n smile at his
noighbors which plainly snld, "Didn't I
manage thnt well?" he leaned comfortably
on bis stick.
The favored one hnd not noticed tho little play which had been enacted Ior her
benelit, but a young girl who sat In the
nest seat was .... observer and saw tho
warm red deeply flush under the black
skin of tho other woman and the tears
come In the dark eyes, she saw tho mouth
quivering, and her own eyes snapped.
With n glance at "his complacency," unmistakably expressive of her scorn and In-
ilignution, sho quickly rose, touched the
womnn on this arm and gently said:
"Take my seat. I'm getting out at the
next comer."
Then, Hashing a look nt tho man, unilor
which his expression of self congratulation
rapidly changed to something near to
