SATURDAY, M'C'H 6, 1897.
The resident* pf East Kootenay and
of Golden in particular have already
nisnitested con*id*r*ble internt in the
natter of who i* to b* their next
representative in the Provincial Legislature. The present indication* l*ad
us to believe that a general election
will net fa* held until after the next
ttttion ef tht Heut*. Before tbe opening ����� th* prexnt session a gnat many
*Mtn*d inclined to th* ��i*w that th*
Administration *tood a poor ehane* of
gatting through th* MMien without
d*l*at bnt now it stems to b*g***v*lly
admitted that nothing of that tort i*
likely to occur. Bewever it la well,
that tho** having th* Wst interests of
th* District at heart should ttt that a
candidal* is placed in tk* fold at one*
wbo if tltettd will inanfully Ight for
the right* -of Eaat Kootonay. Thi*
District want* a* her representative a
man wko und*r*tand> th* need* *f th*
District aad on* who will not allow
himself to b* mad* th* tool of any organised gang of monopolists.
Wad* not raquirt to go outaid* tb*
Di*triet *ith*r to Sod a man who i�� in
���v*rv way qualified t* 111 tb* petition
aad w* *ine*r*ly hope that b*for* v*ry
long th*r* will be placed In tb* field a
tandidate whom the people o\ tht* District can support no matter to what
political party h* belong* aad On* whom
th*y vill b* proud to hava a* th*ir
npNMatativ* in tk* Hoaat. Within
* v��ry short space of tins* we predict
that E*��t Koemnay will kata bteame
on* of tb* meet populou* and' important portion* of th* Provinea and bar
ptopl* will do well to it* lhat thtbrnt
man availabl* is selected for tba position.
And tkey theuld **��� to it that na
imp-iecuniou* carpet beggar, no matter
what klaetkev qualification* may h*,
it allowed to g*t peatttiion at tkattat.
Tkt tart of man that it wanted ia ont
whtst tuancial potitie. is tuck that
be' will not of necessity be figuring in
"jobt"ofali tortt in ordtr to hold
body and soul togtthtr. There are
mtmbtrf of .egiilatur** in other pro-
vine** who hav* no apparent attain of
livelihood otktr than the ttMlontl indemnity that they draw y*t they stem
to li<n well-Some-good folk ar* uu-
kind enough to'think that th*rr must
Wi"riikeo-f" ���oro*wti*r��.
Bu'East Kootenay wants none of
th***, a* bar r*pr*s*ntativ*. A good
kenrnt business man who hat made a
���neon* of hi* owu bn��ine��* and who
it not afraid to tttnd up and fight for
th* rights of hit constituency it tht
thtittho next r��pre**ntativ* of East
Koottaay will bt found fighting thit
erOtvd initead of awlstiug them to
gobble up all tb* good thing* of this
fair land.
* * .
It Is to be- hoped that Oolden will
very soon h .wo an **s*y office as it is
found very inconvenient to send ore
samples long distance* in order to obtain assays. The delay which is
necessarily occasioned by sanding out
of town is very often a serious matter
to mining men Everything now
polfit* to a year of active mining operation* in thi* vicinity and we know of
no better point than thi* for a first
class assayer to locate-There isa wall
appointed ��*�����}��� office at tbe smelter
which could doubtless be procured at a
nominal rent for the present. On*
Vancouver office is now making assays
at the rate of 800 per day-This will
giv* tome idea of the amount of business there it in that line just now.
*   ���   *
Thb proposal whioh hat bten made
regarding the passing of legislation
requiring mining companies to pay in
ten per oent of the capital before incorporation ha* caused such a commotion all through ths country and ha*
me" with *o much' opposition in all
quarter* thtat it now look* a* if it
would b* abandoned. Th* Ontarb
Mining and other law* are about a*
good ������ oan be made' and are found
very well adapted to the needs of the
people a* well as their protection. If
tht people in Ontario do not require
mining companies incorporated under
their law to comply with such a clause
at above referred to in oriler to give
tht public protection we tail to understand why the Legislature of British
Columbia need worry itself about im-
peeing such a regulation upon companies incorporated here until they art
asked lo do so. We fail to understand
why It wa* ever proposed-to pass snch
lsgislation here���Certainly no very important part of the residents of B.C.de-
mended any change in tht law; on the
contrary if on* is to be permitted to
judge by tht amount of oppetitlon it
hat met with in tkt prttt, auch lag.*-
lation would ho directly opposed to th*
with** of those whotreroost interested
it tht advancatntnt of ths country.
*   *   .
Tas general impression in but informed circles seems to be that the C.
P. R. will build the Crow's Nest Pas*
railway after all���And we ttt no good
r**-ov'wby they should not bt permitted to; do to ii thay ar* prepared to give
tk* Government and th* people* square
Unless the Government it prepared
to go into the railroading business on
a largt'teal* and push this new road
from Lake Superior to the coa*t they
had better keep out of the business- altogether��� We should like to know of
what earthly us* would be a little line
running from Lethbridge' to Nelson
controlled and operated by the Government���The Eastern shipper would be
in no better position than he is to-day
a* far as freights are concerned a* the
connecting road* could fix their own
It however thei Government would
build an- independent line' from Lake
Superior to the const through the
Crow'* Nsst Pas* the lake- and rail
rout* could be made use oi io- summer
and no difficulty would be-likely to ha
���ip*rl*nc*d In arranging a tnitahl*
winter tariff with either the C. P. R.
ar tba- American road* leading from
earning ��_ honest living th*r* it occorai ���
to us that it might* b* a* wall to giv*
that* gantry a do** of their owa rnedi-r
cin��- In the construction of thefirow't
Neit Pass railway some thousands ot
hand* will b* employed, and, a* a
mark of out Government's appreciation
of Unci* Sam's devoted attention to u*
recently, we would suggest that any
company or contractor that enter* Into
any contract with the Government re*
garding the construction of that railway should be called upon to enter into a covenant that none but British
subjects be employed on the work.
If Canada will but give Uncle 8am a
few sharp knocks like thi* on tb* end
of hi* long nose he will discover ibat,
while he may think so, he is uot really
the owner and boss of tht wholt North
American Continent.

remarks on the ��� notorious clause 20 of

is  the  intention the matter ho* been
gone  about   in. an altogether wropg
manner.   It will no longer be possible
for poor locators of mires in connection
with   local  business   men, to form a
company and  develope promising property   as  has   hitherto been the case.
But the wealthy speculator -and it it
from thit class that 'wild-cats' originate-will n6t be detterred in the same
way    The result of such a law -would
be to place the prispentor at the mercy
of the capitalist.     We do not believe
that  clause  80 will ever become law.
If it does, a monstrous injustice will
be  perpetrated   upon  the prospector,
and  tha legitimate mining industry-
will  bs crippled at  a most critical
stage in Its development."

Sir,���In a recent issue of the Daily News-
Advertiser you will notice that tbe above
mast important project has been "shelved"
by tbe Dominion Government, backed by
public opinion in the East. I venture to
think that this piece of news will be as unwel
come to the inhabitants of Golden as it is to
the rest of the 1 ritish Columbian cities. As
tbe Colonist of tbe _4th inst points out it is a
gross breach of faith on the Dominion Government's part, and the shelving of this railway literally means the side-tracking of
British Columbia. This roud which is of
vital importance to the Province would, if
sundry improvement* were doue on the Columbia river between Golden and Fort Steele
give your city a competing railway to the
coast, and therefore help the mining and
smelting Interests of your city and district
enormously; and now the cities of Toronto,
Ottawa, etc,, decide (!) tbat the road which
hi of the most vital importance to us Hritish
Colunilii.ins is immaterial to tbem, and tiuit
the Dominion Government is oidy to vote
money (a goodlsb part of which comes annually from us - for the building by the C.P.

Montreal, March 1.   The recent pur-
I chase of large quantities of steel rails
in Philadelphia by the C. P. R. is understood here us a certain indication
I that the company had been or would
bj awarded tho franchise for building
the Crow's Nest Pass railway from
I fs-ihbridua to Kootenuy to tap the
British Co ninbiu mining country, Tbe

Sit's would start from Montreal to-morrow to complete the survey, a lact
which makes this supposition almost
a uertuinity, The only hitch seems to
lie that Hon. A. G. Blair, Minister of
Railways and Canal*-, wants the road
built from Lethbridge clear through to
the coast, whereas the C. P. R. desire
to have it join their main line ut Nelson, B. C.
The people of Eastern Canada tire
anxious to have the road built so thut
tbey may capture a share of the trade
of the Kooteiiny district, which is now
principally in the hands of merchants
iu Spokane, Wash. The agitation to
have the Government build and uperate
the road js not favored by bankers and
capitalists hero. They allege that it
would cost more and take longer to
buiM it by this means. A resolution
was to day introduced in ihj city
council favoring Government control,
but it is alleged tbat this is prompted
by the Atlantic and Lake Superior
syndicate opposing the C. P. R. and
having franchises for opposition lines,
the Ottawa and Furry Sound Railway
being port of tbeir scheme,
