Tim controversv between Great
Britain nnd tho Republic ot Venezuela
has, through the interference of the
United States bccoinu the one absorbing topic at present and the ���'unspeakable Yank'' has for a time a
period in whicli to breath his last in
his own fond wny.
Great Britain is now involved in
two disputes with regard to the Venezuela affair. Thero is in the lirst pjace
the dispute with Venezuela itself as to
the position of the boundary line
between British Guiana and Venezuela
' Then ill the second place there is tho
dispute with the United States over
the hitter's assumption to make Great
Britain refer her dispute with Venezuela to arbitration.
In 1814 Great Britain acquired a
title to British Guiana from Holland
by treaty. Tho provinces then conceded were Berbice, Demurara nnd Ese-
quiho. However the Republic of Venezuela has never recognized lhat Great
Britain had any legal right to any
territory west of the Rio Esequiha, In
1841 Sir Robert Scboinburg entered
the disputed territory and procec ed to
establish a line from the Brazilian
frontier to the Boca Grande In order
to have a defined boundary lino between British   Guiana uud Venezuela.
In running his line Schouiburg set
up posts iu different places, to indicate
the limits of the British possessions
there. They wero subsequently ordered to be removed by Lord Aberdeen,
who was then Foreign Secretary, as
the Venezuelans made a strong protest.
It is upon the Schouiburg lines lhat
England b.ises her claim. Since then
thero have been several unsuccessful
attempts lo settle.he dispute amicably
In 18ii0 the celebrated status quo tins
established. Iu 1881 Lord Granville
mado an attempt aud proposed a new
boundary Una and iu lHS.'i he assented
to a treaty, a uhiut-u of which 'provided that uuy differences not adjustable
by the usual means should lie submitted to thu urbit rut ion of u third
power or of some several powers iu
amity with both countries. The arrangements inr.de by the Glndstonin.i
party was however rescinded by Lord
Salisbury who caine into oliiee and
England bus since that time refused to
submit to arbitration any territory inside the Scboiuburg line or any t'eri.-
tory outside his line will) the U.S. us
What has untile the dispute momentous is: last year tlio States triud
to impose ou Great Britain to make
tho affair be settled by iirbilrntiui.
Tho l'nileil Stutcs buses its authority
upon the much hackneyed Munroe
doctrine. Of course it does not .nutter
whet her Great Britain is correct or
not in the boundary line between lho
two territories. Tho question is has
the United Suites thu right to dictate
to England what she shall or shall not
do in reference to South American
territory which dees not in the least
degree effect them. As on apology for
the interference they bring forward tho
Monroe doctrine, which is as Lord
Aberdeen said: ������merely a dictum of its
distinguished author," ami has no
place in the code of international laws.
The Monroe doctrine originated from
a sequence of events which occurred
during the early part of the present
century in connection with thu Spanish colonies in America. It was
drawn up ill 1822 In Mexico and
South America the Spanish colonies
revolted and established for themselves
republican governments. The United
States acknowledged their iudopend-
crinse, Spain however wus making' nn
effort to re-subdue theiu. She hoped
by the aid of the holy alliance (a fad
erastion composed of Russia, Prussia.
Franco and Austria) to recover her
colonies and wus taking steps to do so,
wheu Great Britain co-opotiited with
Uio United States in resenting this
resubjiigation nnd President Monroe sent bis message to congress
containing tbe following words, (after
reviewing the position of the Spanish
colonics) ���"We owe it therefore lo
candour and to the amicable relations
existing betweon the United States and
those powers to declare that we should
consider any attempt on their part to
extend their system to any portion of
this hemisphere us dangerous to our
penco nnd safsty. Willi tlie existing
colonies or dependencies of any European power, we have not interfered, and
shall not interfere. But with the
governments who have declared their
independence and maintained it, and
whose i.idepnudence we have on great
consideration and - just principles acknowledged, wc could not view any
interposition for the purpose of oppressing them, or controlling in any manner, their ' destiny, by any European
power, iu any other light than ns the
manifestation ot an unfriendly disposition toward the United States."
Iu an editorial the Toronto World
says: '-What is known as international law is a constitution as firmly
established as is the constitution of the
United States itself. If any country
desires to amend tho constitution thut
defines ihe tight of nations.(hero is a
legal way of proceeding, A nation revolting against iuteriiiitioiinl law.is
exactly analogous to individuals rebelling against the constitution of
their country. A rebellion is never
justifiable unless the persons affected
are laboring diidci- a very serious and
long-continued injustice. -It certainly
is never justifiable until ull efforts to
obtain redress in a coit.'tiliVtional wuy
have been exhausted. We do not denv
there are occasions who., a nation
would be justified in refusing io submit .o international law. But tlie occasion must lie put; where the injury
suffered is manifestly oppressive' and
unjust and it must be exercised only
after all constitutional efforts to alter
tbe law have failed.
It is i;ot contended tliut Great-Fri*
tain is violating the law of nations in
her proposed settlement of her dispute
With Venezuela. .,
It is not contended, even by ihe Americans themselves, that their claim
against Great .Britain is sustained by
International law. as it exists. Furthermore, it is not shown thnt the.
United States has made any serious
and constitutional efforts to have the
international code amended so ns to
give theiu authority to puss th.'ir
claim ngaliiB' Great Britain.
Tliu United Stales is a relal against
International law, and ,n rebel, too,
that bus made no effort to hnve her
grievances righted iu a constitutional
Ami yet this is the nation that is
threatening war on Great Britain unless the latter submit her dispute with
lino.ber nation to "fair, reasonable
and civilized arbitration!"
Will thc sober, second thought of
tbe people of the United States sustain
President Cleveland in this lamentable
We do not believe it."

Claim Jumping.
Editor GOLDEN Eua :
All interested in mining (bar "sore
heads" and ���'jumpers") have about
concluded thut claim jumping hits got
to stop, ..ml particularly iu East
Kootenay dues this como home lo us,
for were it not for "jumping" and
similar obstructions we would have
to-.day two (at least) working mines in
tho McMurdo district.
The question now is what can be
douu to end, or eren check, claim-
Mr. Kellie, M.P.P. for West Koote-
nuy, I hear, intends tu introduce a bill
at the foi Incoming session with this
objeut in view. It is said it will deal
with claim jumping iu a comprehensive uuinner, will be retro-active, su us
to include pust offences und inflict punishment on those who have injured
any mining camp by claim-jumping or
black mailing.

Another provision of ��i ��� bill (I
write from memo; ) v. II be at ipon
satisfactory evidtrce be lore tl, - C urts
that a claim holder does not possess a
valid title, and , in the event of the
claim being declared forfeited, it shall
not be open for re-location by any
free miner, but shall be sold by auction
after due notice has been given.
The first part of this proposed bill is
not desirable. Opening old sores is
foolish at any time, and this is about
what retro-active measures of this
nature generally amount to, and very
little else.
Tlie second provision starts out all
right, and is what has been pretty
well advocated in this division for
some time past, but it ends all wrong.
Every mining claim thus sold wonld
be a direct gain to the Government
(capitalists, ot course, included) and a
direct loss to the prospector. This is,
I think, a self-evident fact and needs
no explanation.
1 would, in the first place, that the
fori.- of record .' mineral claims be
amen Jed by adding thereto a declaration similar, in sense, to that required
by tbe Provincial Land Aot. Secondly,
that after a mineral claim has been
declared forfeited by the Courts, it
shall be published for, lay, the usual
sixty days, and then become the property of the first free miner who shall
stake and record it.
The "Dominion Land Act" (noncompliance with requirements under
' Homesteads") is upon these lines,
and is fonnd to work satisfactorily.
Elaborate legislation is not what we
want. We require a plainly worded
and simple bill, or amendment to the
"Mineral Aot" that will tend to stop
litigation and thus end what has so
far made mining an impossibility in
Golden Mining Division.
Yours truly,

There has been no material change
In copper for the Iaet two weeks. The
market depends mnch on the attitude
which some of the largest producing
companies will take in connection with
a sale which they are likely to make
early this month. The rumours of
''hostilities witb England of course has
a detrimental influence in the New
York market. The quotations are 10
to lOJcts. There wore not a few who
confidently predicted last year that
copper would stand at 12cts. or better.
This was occasioned from the great
rise from 9ft to 12Jcts., and it was
thought that "no cutting under 12cts,
a pound would be made for several
years." However the protectivo power
of the world is become so great that
such an increase in the price of nny
article as this of copper will immediately bring about u larger production, nnd '.consequently a decrease
in prico for a short time,
Mining is _ow becoming so much
less a gambling speculation, that the
public may now depend upou nearly a
uniform line of production in most
minerals in consequently uniform price
Copper will probably go to llcts. or
even below aud subsequently rise to
10 or lOJcts.
The middle of last month silver declined it. price to fillets., in fact to
29Jd. in London during the cessation
of Japanese, and Chinese buying. At
the 20th however, owing to the purchase of silver for Indian bazaars and
various French lenders the market
rose to 63Jcts. This seems to be the
culminating point of the market which
is now on a slight decliue.
Shaking of the financial depression
in the New York Stock Exchange the
Engineering A Mining Journal 'says I
"The President's message came as u
most unwelcome check und surprise to
business. While no one believes that
immediate warlike complications will
result, the possibilities presented are
very discouraging and the impetus indirectly given to tbe always ready
Congressional tendency to extravagance and the unnecessary expenditure of money is very much to be regretted. It, is. not tbo niuch to say-
that the arousing of the "Jingo" had
' and will have a most injurious effect
on business and that the message has
i practically ended the possibility of any
consideration of tbe currency question
[ at the present session."
There has not been much business
I done. Prices have receeded to U._0,
[the quantities offered being large, the
I market continues to lower. St. Louis

According to quality the quotations

A pute Grape Cream of Tartar Powder. Free
from Ammonia, Alum or any other adulterant,
TIipu nen'n thi- arsenic vnrles from
nothing to sometimes as high ns 1.J*
pr*r cent, it is in fnct a. very complicated
cm In its composition,
Copper Pyrites.
Most of the copper used in the
world hns lieen inn.mfnotured from
this ore, theu-jh it is very sparingly
distributed in East Kooteiiny. It is
one of the two Fool's goUt, which
metnl it in *oine shades resembles very
nearly. It is of a brass yellow colour,
often tarnished bj exposure to deep
yellow. Sometimes shows iriilescence,
- thnt is exhibits different shades of
colour ns a prism of rainbow It is
very diiTi.ult to distinguish it from
iron pyrites, iu fact I have known instances where capable men have mistaken it for irr-n pyrites upon preliminary examination, The copper is so
mixed with iron that it is hard to
form a line of demnre.ha.ion between
the two, though nny pyrites thnt con-
tnin copper should Ire copper pyrites.
The iheoreiical composition of the copper pyrites is copper iU.u p.c, sulphur
ilsi p.c, and iron 'lO.fi p.c, whereas
the iron pyrites is iron 45.5 p.c, sulphur, nS.fi p c.
It may lie distinguished from iron
pyrites in its deeper colour nnd its inferior hardness, boiug easily scratched
with a knife, and will not produce
sparks when struck ou steel. It fuses
hcfore tho blow pipe. It is generally
associated with iron pyrites, galena,
zinc blende aud cm-bournes of copper,
(malachite and azurite) in veins in
granitic and allied rocks. Nearly all
the Oornwiill and Spanish ore is ol
this kind and is mostly ol a very poor
character. The Spanish copper mine,
the Rio Tinto, which is snid to lie the
oldest mine in the world, beini; opened
2,500 B.C., is of this character of ore,
there are now 12X10 men working;
there and 9100,000,000 hns beet, taken
out, 8.10,000,000 within the last few
yeurs. Al-ound this ancient .nine
which has seen so many nations come
and go and so inniiv dynasties rise
and (all there hns sprung np a city ol
over 20,000 inhabitants. The deposits
of this ore there are enormous, iu fact
after so many years of uclive production they have only reached a depth ol
400 feet below the surface, which
seems hardly credulous, It however
onlv yields about il p.c. copper. The
ore cun be uso I for the production oi
copper at a very small cos., ns it be*
somes a by-product in the manufacture
of sulphuric acid (oil of vitriol) and
Tho only plan'.* it occurs iu any
quantity iu East Kootenay is at Horse
Thief Creek and Toby Creek.
TETllAll-URlTE   (OUAY   COl'I'KIl Oil-).
This ore is of a steel gray colour
sometimes passing to iron black having a streak the same colour as speci-
. man, and is rather brittle. It associates with the other ores of copper. Ita
composition varies considerably but
may be taken at, cop-sir il!) per cont,
sulphur 27, antimony 1G, arsenic 7,
with variable quantities of nine, iron
and silver. 1 have had specimens containing 25 per cent silver in place of
copper and is then termed argentiferous gray copper ore, (or silver fahlerz)
