Array MISSISSIPPI  FLOODS.
Immense   flection of    Country   Submerged.
Memphis. Teun., March 12. -The
"Father of Waters" continues at litis
point of its booming career, surprising t
planters, citizens and the older inhabi-
tatits alike. In the past twelve hours
a rise of seven feet is noticed, with
little prospect of cessation. River
steamers, both through and local, are
making landings never before attempted uinl in some instances boats touch
at points forty odd miles inland. A
private levee on the Nenly cotton plantation, ten miles above here, has faibd
to resist the powerful current. All
live stock in that portion bave been
removed to the hills. In Memphis the
big 1,000 aore mind bar is complete',.
under water, forcing out a hundred or
more thugs and thieves wno made the
willows on the bar at night a hiding
place. Wolf river, just north of this
city, is overfly wing its banks, doing
considerable damage to fences, farmers
���nd settlers 'cabins, The weather
bureau predicts continued high water,
nold wave to-night, and freezing temperature to-morrow. Two great side
wheel steamers, capable of currying
1,000 passengers each, this afternoon
issu-d notice of ��nexcursion into Euot-
ern Arkansas, giving a view of the
overflowed country aud submerged
plantations. / This means a trip of 50
miles due west from Memphis, through
tre tops and over cabins, farms and
small villages. . Past high water of
fered no such opportunities.
Cincinnati. Ohio, March 13. -There
is a general belief here today that lie
cause the Ohio river,whioh had reached a stage of fifty feet, began failing a'
noon, with clear weather prevailing iu
the Ohio vsllev, that no further apprehension of floods ure uow felt.
Perpetual   Motion.
Mr. Thomas Kelly of Wiruton. claims
to have solved the problem of perpetual
motion, and informs the Canadian
that he has constructed a machine
which has now been running for several months, aud is capable of prudtic
ing power. As an evidence of his inventive genius, Mr Kelly promises
that he will place the machine on exhibition in the Canadian window. If
Mr. Kellv has reallv solved the problem
the combined wealth of theltbthchilds
Vanderbilts. Rockefellers and other
multi-millionaires will pale into insignificance compared with what such a
discovery will be worth to the world.
A Hallway   Disaster.

From .ugliniw     uy.
Bay City, .Mich., March li An
immense ice floe, con mining all the
solid ice in -iiginaw Buy, .vein out!
this morning, carrying over S00 fishermen. The ice bea-uu. to break neuf
the shore here at 5 o'clock this morning, and the floe is now eight miles
out in the bay. About 'i"> fishermen
from this city had huts from .Vleuin-
quutu Point, and they were till curried
out. Of the ��*i)0 fishermen near Selie-
waing, some managed to guilt the shine
before the ice left, but the large majority were carried out. A strong southwest wind is blowing. The lishermen
here are uneasy, but do uot anticipate
that the men on the floe will perish.
They say the ice is still too solid to
break up enough to admit of a passage
to Lake Huron bv the Charity Islands.
If the warm south wind continues for
another day there will be but little
chance for their rescue.

Woman's Crewnlng Glory.
You mny sing iu praise of women from her
head unto her toot;
You mny say sho is ii vision thut is more th..n
passing sweet;
You tuny speak of her attriittious, her allurements rani hor whims,
And the sunshine uf her gruces tliut no shadow ever dims;
But you fondly must acknowledge, while
your soid in triumph crows,
That a womuu's crowning glory is her bargain counter nose.
Just observe her in the morning whon Tuu
-Ita up she takes.
When sho sugars all thi fish bulls nud puts
mustard on tae cakes;
Tliruugh the mud preoccupation uf her rending nil aglow.
Of the sacrificial shirt waist uud the bonnet,
don't you know,
And it's certain by the glances she udnu the
sheet, bestows,
Thut a woman's crowning glory is her bargain counter nose.
There's a gloiini ef exaltation in her wild di-
' luted orbs
When she conjures   up the beauties of the
mis which she absorb*;
She's ilcliriuiis with rupture to her inner soul,
unit th..t's
A kaleidoscope of stockings uud a liolucuiist
ot huts.
And with symphonies of ribbons ull  bur
spii it overflows,
For u woman's crowning glory is her bur-
guin cobuter nose.
You mny ruve about her presence and her
carriage so superb;
You may suy that like u butterfly she drifts
front curb to curb j
You may carol of her counsel uud her influence so sweet,
And the light uud airy music ot the patter of
birr feet,
But yoii'u have to still acknowledge, though
iuuirtii.il or repose,
Thut u woman's crowning glory is her bargain counter iiuse.

Colonel Duster's 8uu.itIrene...
The Kelson Miner says: "Col.
Baker is said to be a sensitive man.
It would be difficult to say which
worries him the most; The different
ways his epitaph on Walkein is punctuated by the provincial press, or
Walkem's charge that the colonel is a
charter monuer."
How carefully the Miner guards
itself���"is said to be." What a protection these words afford against a
charge of inaccuracy. Is Colonel
Baker a sensitive man? If so, then
his sensitiveness must be of a peculiar
order. It is not particularly strong
when trying to float companies whicli
do not catch on,���or making a deal to
pocket some of the resources of the
Province belonging to its people,
through the aid of a charter; but it
comes powerfully out when the truth
is told in plain lan*;uarre. Sin, according to some elastic-sided consciences,
consists not in the act done but in
being found out. The Colonel is being
found out, is he therefore sensitive?
Some natures change with the incre.se
of years. The Colonel's nature may
have followed this course, but we suspect his want of success as a company
promoter, nnd his success as a charter
monger and a writer of epitaphs in
gaining notoriety may bave operated
some change. Success in such lines is
not to be envied if sensitiveness ot tbe
Baker type is to be tbe result.'
Strike of  Metallic Tin.
Metallic tin has been discovered on
the north fork of the Salmon river,
This is a rare discovery in auv mineral
country and if the first instanoe of tbe
kind in Kootenay. A few days since
a prospector brought to the assayer of
the Hall mines a number of small
grains of a lustrous white metal which
lie said he picked out of some rotten
granite. The prospector had an idea
that his find was a native compound
ol mercury and gold. In speaking of
the discovery, Mr. Holdich said : " I
expect to have samples of the rock
very shortly and meanwhile I firmly
believe that it is a genuine find and no
' fake.' The locality is sorAewhere near
the north fork of the Salmon river, but
as yet I hardly feel justified in giving
more accurate information aa to the
exact spot."���Vancouver World.
Death or a Pioneer.
Mr, George Hamilton of Calgary, a
man well-known by the old timers of
British Columbia, died very suddenly
near Calgary this week.
/ Thirty-five years ago Mr Hamilton
while engaged in placer mining travel-
led over the Cariboo, Big Bend, Salmon
River, Trail Creek and Boundary
District
Mr. Hamilton was the soul of honor
and one of the most highly respected
men in the country. He bad many
friends in Golden who will learn with
regret of hit sudden death.
Rowland Mxpaete Surprised.
Messrs. McMillan and Fletcher late
of Jiossland have been in town during
the past few days awaiting'.he departure of tho Fort Steele stage Mr.
Fletcher is sn assayer sud mining expert of experience snd Mr. McMillan
represents soma capitalists who sre
about to make large Investments in
Enst Kootensy. Both gentlemen were
shown ssmplss of the ore tsken from
the mines st Ottertail, the MoMurdo
country snd Windermere and expressed
their surprise st finding snoh magnificent specimens here. They ssid if

TRANSPORTATION
IN EAST KOOTENAY.
"The line of boats running from
Golden, on the Canadian Pacific Bail-
way, down the Columbia river, with
that navigating from Jennin��s, on the
Kootennv river, north into the Fort
Steele, has been consolidated. The
combined concern will be known ns the
International Navigation company,but
is in reality a branch of the Canadian
Psclfio railway service.
There sre already five fteamers on
these routes, snd the sixth is to be at
once constructed. As an Indication of
what the carrying trade on these
rivers may amount to, it need only be
said that the new company has one
contract to carry 4500 tons of galena
ore from the North Star mine to Jennings for shipment * to the smelter at
Great Falls. Montana."
The above Is from the Kootenain
and Is practically correct, but the two
companies have not yet been consolidated and hnve not transferred their
Interests to the C.P.R. The Upper
Columbia Navioation and Tramway
Company has three steamers running
from Golden nn the Columbia, while
the International Transportation Company will have three steamers running
from Jennings up the Kootenay to
Fort Ste?le. Connection will he had
between the two intermediate points hv
a special stsge service, coaches for
which are heir, enec'el'v constructed.
The third steamer on the Kootenay,
"The North Star" has not yet been
launched, but it wil' he soon and will
run during the whole of the season.
It is a stern whee'er and its can-vim*
capacity is 100 tons.
Cap'ain Armstrong is presently at
Jennings and will be there nntil May
making and completing arraneements
for the season's frelghtlnc-. He will
not leave until the "North Star" is
launched.

An Attractive Display.
A tastefully dressed window is one
of the first tb'ngs which attracts customers to a store. Mr Is. A. Parsons,
manager st the Big Store, seems to be
more than ordinarily endowed with
talent in this particular line. The
dry goods window of tbe Big Store
this wesk is simply a dream and the
ladies of the town have been going
into. ecstasies over the spring goods
which sre so attractively displayed
therein. Mr. H. G. Parson's stock of
spring dress goods, trimmings, millinery snd fancy goods is complete snd
unequalled in the mountains. A look
at his stock will repay any lady for
her trouble. Cull early before the

Guilty or Murder,
Aubnrn. N.Y., March IS.-The jury
on the Sheldon trial has just rendered
a verdict of guilty in the first degree.
They bad been out about 90 hours and
each day when they returned to court
having not agreed, the judge sent them
back. At length tbey became exhausted. One juror was ill, and a bed and
medical care hsd to be provided. F.
N. Sheldon is adjudged guilty of murder in the first degree for killing his
wife on April 30th, 1895, In the town
of Brutus, this county. The body of
Mrs. Sheldon was first discovered bv
her husband, who returned from Jordan, where he went that morning after
committing the crime A revolver
was found lyin. by her side and a
theory of suicide was accepted for a
time. Two weeks later, after an inquest, the body was disinterred, sn
autopsy was held and Sheldon arrested
He was indicted by the grand jury snd
has been in jail ever since. The trial
lasted seven weeks snd the jury was
out eighty-six hours. Judge Dunwell
sentenced Sheldon to be electrocuted in
Auburn prison during tbe week commencing April 25th. i

Farmers and the Severe Winter.
Spring is approaching���which wiil
be a welcome relief to farmers- Tliere
are symptoms of its near arrival in appearing pavement* and melting snow.
The winier has been long and dreary
and will be remembered by stock owners as one of the severest since the
memorial one of 1877-78 which de
stryed so much'stock. Four years ago
was a hard winter, a scarcity of feed
and much loss of stock. This wiuter
has been much longer and more severe.
It came early, snow falling iu November and has remained since.
The winter setting in so early necessitated early feeding whioh has had to
be be continued until in many cases it
has become exhausted. As a rule
farmers do not contemplate feeding until the winter is well advanced, never
anticipating that the feeding period
will extend beyond two or three months. As a consequence several losses
of stock are reported.
We regret that farmers are not so
provident as thev ehould be. They
are too much of the happy-go-lucky
disposition - trusting to fate - instead
of providing in abundance. From
the past thoy should gain a lesson lor
the future, and put more land nnder
cultivation and obtain larger and better crops of hay. The trusting- ss
many do-to obtaining sufficient hay
from the sloughs has proved a failure.
Providence only helps those who
help themselves; ont of evil good may
come, and we can only ho|-e that the
farmers will be mure provident iu tbe
future.
It Made Her Nervous.
A good story is told on a rather
nervous Carleton Place young lady.
The other day she was crossing near
the passenger depot while tho trainmen were doing some switching. As
the train backed up one brakeman called to the other: Jump onto her as
she comes by, run her down the line
and cut ber in two snd bring the head
end up to the depot. It is said that
the young lady jumped up nnd dowu
and yelled ss loud as she could, snd
then made tracks for the nearest house

EDITORIAL NOTES.
W�� purpose publishing shortly a
series of articles dealing with East
Kootenay and its resources for the purpose of enlightening the outside world.
We know what Esst Kootensy if and
what immense resources it possesses.
This knowledge does not extend beyond
our eastern mountains snd we are
afraid it does not reach down to the
ooast. We sre going to make it our
duty to supply these srticle s of information, if our readers will only assist
us by supplying bints, facts and special details. Single handed we csnnot
unterteks tbe tssk unless we have cordial help, snd ss these articles sre for
the purpose of benefitting the District,
assisting jo making its resources
known so ss to bring in capital and-
populstioq, we hope those who can aid
will not he backward in coining forward with tbe assistance we desire.
Ths articles shsll include sueh subjects ss mines snd mining, which will
be the greatest industry in tho district.
There ars other industries of great importance, we may almost say of the
lirst importance just now. These are
ranching, mixed farming and lumbering. Other industries may arise and
sre sure to arise if our District goes a*
bead, which we all anticipate it   will.
The area of East Kootenay may be
ststed we think correctly to contain
about 16,000 square miles of territory,
In tbie area we bave every variety and
prairie-benches, hills, mountains, Valleys, rivers, streams and rills, Tbe
whole area throughout is rich In miners) wealth. There ie no sterility bat
great fertility . If it is not on the surface it is underneath it. The most
sangaine of us csnnot anticipate what
oar possibilities may be in the next
year. If, however, we expect these
possibilities to be realised it will not
be by sitting witb folded bauds and
retaining the information we possess
ta ourselves. We must help one another and disseminate information and
let the ourside world knew whst we
have and thereby in so doing we help
one another and also ourselves. We
will disseminate this information in
no far as we can through our columne
when we obtain it.
< We do not propose to interfere with
the duties of the Mining Bureau, which
we hope soon to see establi shed in connection witb the brsncb of tbe Board
of Trade to be shortly formed in town.
Neither sre we going to anticipate their
rights. But will be entirely separate.
It will bs ths duty of ths Board of
Trade and of ths Mining Bureau to
collect information also, but tbeir information must be minute snd precise
and- most be systematised and particularised snd carefully preeerved and
retained for future reference. The only
resemblance will bs tbat their information obtained and onr information
supplied must be correct snd reliable.
Our article will generalise tbis information .and tbe publication of our articles will spread it fsr snd wide, beyond mountain and sea we hope. We
know that we will not appeal to our
���readers in vsin, but tbst there will be
munition among onr readers to assist
British Columbia is going tbe pace
in tlie matter of spending money. The
provincial accounts, lately submitted
to the Legislature, show that with a
population that can hardly exceed 15,-
000 it has a net debt of 4,088,291 dollars, and that last year with a revenue
of 989,765 dollars it had au expenditure of 1,906,924 dollars.
This is clipped from a down east
journal called the Orillia Packet, published somewhere in Ontario. A province considerably smaller than British
Columbia, only about half its size,
which will be news to the Editor of
that Journal. We do not know how
the editor arrived at, his information
in regard to, the number of our population���we shall deal witb his financial
figures afterwards���but if he had taken tbe trouble to refer to the last census
returns, whiuh he will fiud published
in every Almanac, some of which are
obtainable for a few cents, and might
be a good investment to that editor,
he would bave found tliere recorded the
census returns for British Columbia in
1891 were 98,173. Tbis is six years
ago���whut a change since then. In
addition to our natural and proportional increase, there has been a great influx of population into Souteern British Columbia and when we estimate
our total pepulaniou at 120,000 we estimate it at a very modest figure.
Perhaps we have been unnecessarily
blaming the editor for his want oi
knowledge, when the real person responsible is his proof reader. Iu that
case the editor and we do not differ
much in regard to population
He will put the number at 150,000
while we prefer to be modest and place
it at 120,000.
We cannot however blame tbe compositor in regard to the financial figures. The true blame rests with Mr.
Editor, We have not much fault to
find with these figures, only he has so
stated them as to make the service up
pear the better for his object, We do
not know where he took his figures
from, we take uur figures from tbe
Provincial accounts themselves and
there find that the total revenue was
$1,156,088.98 and that our net expenditure was 91,614,723,62. In that
yearly expenditure is included the sum
of 1257,908,88 expended on the new
Parliament House. Buildings which
ore being erected at Victoria tot the
purpose of anchoring the Capital on
the Island for the next hundred years.
We admit the amount of our net
debt, and* also admit we have little to
sliow for it beyond a few roads and a
few trails and a Turner Government.
Had he attacked that government we
might have been with him. The
trouble is we do not epend enough
money to open up the resouces of the
country, Iu fact we'will aoou hare
more to open np.' The Government is
giving them away-flH-ta-MEright
and left. We have a country of great
resources, a healthy climate, a law
respecting people and the crookedest
government under the eun-the Western sun.
We have a big province and the
only 'hings we need sre population
and a decent government. We give a
few more facts to interest the Orillia
Packet Editor. We admit we are behind as regards population but as regards oor wealth and our cont ributions
to the Dominion Exchequer we make a
good show. Our duties in 1895,which
is the Isst returns available, was tl,*
063,691 which thus placed our Province a long way ahead of New Brunswick. Manitoba and Prince Edward
Island. In regard to our exports we
were fourth on tbe list and again
ahead of these provinces. The want
of knowledge down eoat concerning onr
Province ie most extensive snd we
ehsll take every opportunity of enlightening the east with our wisdom
from the west. We do not complain
of this want of knowledge, but we
think we are entitled to complain
when this want of knowiedge is paraded by editors of eastern papers as if it
were a virtue of which they were preeminently proud.
* *
Is our columns are found a summary
of the Dominion estimates so far as
these apply to our Province. We are
very much disappointed with the perusal. Our Province has been treated
in a most niggardly manner.. In addition to the principal estimates, which
we presume would be the expiring
efforts of the last government. We
have two supplementary estimates
which would be the result of the present Government, as there are additional grants to our Province to the extent
ol 40,100 dollars. Our Province is
much more important than some
which have been treated in quite a
different manner, witb a libera ity almost amounting to profuseness. We
produce a big revenue to the Dominion
and we have a big province to develop
and we expect to be treated if uot generously .at least with a spirit of fairness and equality. The Dominion is
going to spend close on 200,000 on
telegraph lines and out of that sum
less than 20,0U0 ...liars is to be spent
in the province, and of that sum 5,000
goes to the Island, where it is not so
much needed as iu East Kootenay.
We say this is most unfair. On railways aud canals the Dominion is going to expend close upon 185,000 dollars and not a single cent comes to
British Columbia. We are not even
going to get the Crow's Nest railway
after all their promises.' Wo are paying pretty heavy for the piper, and are
surely entitled to call for some of the
music. Why is there uot a sum iu the
estimates for u telegraph line between
Golden and Fort Steele and thence on
to Kalispel. Had our own district
been down east, we venture to say,
that at this time of tbe day we would
not have been making a similar enquiry. All that the Dominion allows
for this important district of East
Kootenay is a miserable pittance oi
4,600 dollars to improve tbe navigation'of the Columbia. How much improvement will there be on that sum.
The Dominion seems to be acting on
the principal o' taking as much as'
you are able but giving as little as you
can help. The Columbia river is a
navigable river and the protection ol
its banks should be a Dominion concern but yet it shirks this responsibility and gets our province to contribute
over 10,000 dollars for tbe purpose.
Tne Turner Government is capable of
any act of stupid folly and this piece
of folly is only in keeping with their
past conduct. The development of the
province is to it a matter of ntter on*
concern. It prefers to squander its
resources. We hud a change of government in the Dominion and we surely need a similar change iu our Province. But we are enquiring have we
obtained any benefit from the change.
Promises were made and pledges were
given, and it shall be onr duty to see
tbat these were uot mere words of
promise, held to our ears for the purpose of being broken in our lio|ie. We
have bad some experience in East
Kootenay haw these promises were.
kept aud pledges fulfilled in the withdrawing of our weekly mail and substituting a fortnightly service. Tbis
hss now been put right. But we are
just where we were, we sre uo further
forward. We want more of our own
money spent ou ourselves, for useful
purposes sud for tlie U-uelit of East
Kootenuy iu particular aud the province in general. When the present
Dominiou Government was in opposition we have'recollection that one of
the principal attacks on the Government's policy by some of the present
members was: "What is the Government doing to develop British Columbia." We ask the same question snd
will keep asking il iu many forms
practical and otherwise, not only until
we gain an answer but until we see in
the estimate., sufficient contributions
to British Columbia, among whioh
there must be sufficient eume to build
a telephone or telegraph line between
Golden and Fort Steele, and give these
two places s bi-weekly service,

O miserable yet Bsered Fatherland, I

years, thy wretched sons have shed,

out on account of our state of degradation, by the future freedom of my
children, that 1 will be altogether consecrated to thee, that in future thou

f-iuous   Retort* of  Political Orator*
on Public Platform*.
Political orators on public platforms
nre exposed to interruption from their
������ -diences, and their success sonutiines
depends upou the coolness and readi-
r eas .vith which they parry unoxpect-
ed fusts. Among English statesmen
ri chamberlain hus a remarkable
:: lity for silencing opponents who
i pan lire upon him from the t-.-illories.
���e of his quickest and beet retorts
'.ins made when the home rule agitation was at its height, and lie was
charged with treachery to his party in
tl   ertiug Mr. Gladstone.
ie was speaking one night at Bir-
ighaui before an audience which
;iiawed many signs of resentment and
ti friendliness. When he was in the
ni idle of one of his sentences he was
ii  irrupted  with   a    shrill,   sharply
..entuated outcry:
"Judas! Judas! Judas 1"
Mr. Chamberlain did not pause to
finish his sentence. He smiled, glanced
up  at the galleries, and replied with
. an instant's hesitation: ''Not
' las, but Joseph betrayed by his
i : ��� 'rhren 1" The aptness of the reply
anil the quickness with which the
point was turned delighted the audi*
.-: i. There was an enthusiastic out-
burst of applause, and he was not
. tin disturbed during tbe course of
his speech.
i'jord   palmerston   had equal talent
foi disconcerting his critics when tbey
cought to entrap him.     When he wm
i addressing nn audience at Tiver.
ton   he  was  interrupted   by   a loud
..red opponent, who demanded, with
i.nse earnestness:
'Will my Lord give a plain answer
to n plain question?"
'Certainly, with great pleas.u-e,"
was the courteous reply.
���'Will  my Lord tell us whether be
���. ill   or will not vote for a radical rein measure?"
The audience smiled,     There was a
peculiar  agitation   iu favor of a new
reform bill, and Lord Palinerston had
lown adisposition to evade the issue,
h id not to commit himself ou one side
the other. His reply came without
��� trace of embarrassment, but slowly,
one word at a time:
'I will-"
The 'Liberals began to cheer wildly.
"Not���" was the next word, and the
! lonservstives took up the applause
with a counter cheer.
'Tell you," concluded the orator,
with an innocent smile on his face.
Then everyone laughed; and there was
hearty cheering over the wily old
:-nnHainan's ingenuity in securing re*
cognition and applause from each
party, and in the end aays nothing.

Prince tleorge of Greece.
The eyes of almost the whole world
being on Greece, it fs interesting to
learn who Prince George ig. He is
the second son of the King of Greece,
nnd was born at Corfu in June, 18(19.
The young Prince is a tall, handsome,
broadshouldered young fellow of unflinching courage. After completing
his studies at home he started to make
a tour of the world. His companion
through India and the East was the
present Czar of Russia, Nicholas II.,
who wns then the Czarewitch. While
they were travelling through Japan
the Czare-dtch was attacked by a
fanatical Japanesee, and Prince George
beat him off with a heavy stick.
Prince George continued his travels
alone, and, after seeing the sights of
the new world in 1891, he sailed for
Europe on tlie Cunnrder Servia, which
broke a crank pin when two days out
and was obliged to return. There was
considerable excitement aboard, but it
was said that the Prince was the coolest passenger on the steamer, When
the Servia got back to New York the
Prince immediately engaged passage
on the City of New York and sailed
the following day.
Our Dominion.
The next official map of Canada will
show a marked change in the divisions
of our great northern territory. Heretofore the entire Hudson's Bay, and
stretching away to the shores of the
Arctic Ocean, has been variously designated or altogether unmarked by a
distinctive  appellation   of any sort.
The new maps will show the whole
of the far north regularly subdivided
into districts. Their names are Un-
gava, Franklin, Mackenzie and Yukon.
TJngava includes all the district between Hudson Bay and the Arctic
Ocean, with the exception of the narrow coast line known aa Labrador,
Franklin includes the great group of
islands, small continents home of them
north of Hudson Straits and lying between the CGth and 125 degree of west
loinritiiile. West of this nj-ain is Mackenzie district, taking in the mainland
country between the northern limit of
Athabasca and tlie Arctic Sen and lying between the 100th meridian of
longitude and a line about fiOO miles
west of and parallel to the Mackenzie
river. Yukon includes the district enclosed between the latter line and the
northern boundary of British Columbia
the eastern boundary of Alaska, and
the Aac'ic Ocean In his forthcoming
year book, George Johnson, the Dominion -statistical!, devotes a chapter to
delimination of these boundaries nnd
descriptions of the vast territory they
enclose, and he has added to bis table
of areas of Provinces a computation of
the surface of these newly named districts, which serves adequately to demonstrate their immensity. It will
show thst Ontario contains 222,COO
square miles, Quebec 228,000, British
Columbia 383,000, the district of Kee-
watin is estimated in area of over
282,000 miles.
The Service ef Picture..
When anything that ia worth saying
is well said 111 a picture it never fails
to make itself understood, and it does
it at once. A striking sentence may
he uasily forgotten. A striking picture
seldom or never is. A picture speaks
all languaues iu the same moment of
time. The average writer can sp-ak
only one effectively, and even among
the very best writers there is hardly
one in a hundred who can so express
hiinielf thut ninoty-nine in every hundred of his readers will understand
every word he snys. People wbo nil
speak the same language have at ill
many different vocabularies, so that
the wri ter who is obliged to say all he
has to say in the shortest possible
space has always a perplexing problem
when he ia attempting to muke himself
easily understood by everybody.

The total amount of the estimates
for the fiscal year *ndiug June ilOth
1897 is $44,894.98u. 34 being au increase
ou last year's' estimates. The following ��ufns lmve been apportioned to
British Columbia. The office of Assistant Receiver General at Viotoria
takes 14,000 being the smallest sum
paid to any simitar office iu the Dominion. Civil government, and administration of justice are provided for as
follows. The Lieutenant-Governor receives $9,000; circuit allowances of
Judges are 19,000 being an increase of
$500, The Supreme and County courts
absorbs $31,450. The salary of the
chief justice is {5,000. Oue puisine
judge receives $4,850 and the remaining three receive $4,000 each. Our
peiieteudiaries receive $40,200 being an
increase of $3,670 although there is a
decrease of I1(K) in the allowance of
tobacco tor convicts. The increase is
mainly in the prisop equipments and
industries.
Miscellaneous' pen.ions fi r retired
judges, colonial secretary and attorney
general take $12,897.08���we do not
kpow how the 8 cents comes iu. The
defence of Esquimau absorbs $75,500,
being .. decrease of $48,500. Of thi*
sum $25,000 is for public works and
the remainder for the maintenance of
a detachment of Royal Marine Artillery
or Royal Engineers. Fur our railways
and canals we get nothing although
the Govtrummt is going to spend
$183,697 33 ou these, it is all to-be
speut down east. We fare somewhat
better iu public works gettiug $115,000
which will he distributed as follows:
Repairs, etc., $5 000; Drill hall at Naw
Westminster $5,000; Victoria drill
ball $4.00ij; Post office Victoria $100,-
000, being au increase of $40,000 on
last year's vote. The total increase
for public works is $44,500.
For rivers sud b.u-bors $d7,100 are
voted, au increase of $35,600. Fraser
river improvements $25,000; Victoria
aud Nanaimo harbors $10,000 each;
$4,1*00 are to be applied for improvements on the Columbia river above
Oolden; $10,500 are to lie expended for
the protection of the Columbia river
bank at Revelstoke, the Provincial
Government contributing a like amount
For the removal of rocks about Revelstoke $2,000. Increased facilities for
navigation purposes at the foot ol
Kootenay rapids $1,000: improvements
ou the Duncan and Okauagan river-.
$3,500; repairs un wharf and improvements uf water service at Williams
Head Quarantine $2,000. On our
lighthouse and coast service are to be
expended $3,870 which seems a ridiculous small sum when we consider that
.out of this $1,600 are devoted to general repairs at ths quarantine station
Williams Head.
Our department of Indian affairs is
allowed $124,180, our Indians appear
to be well provided for.
The Customs require $67,000 (or the
five divisions Nanaimo, Nelson, New
Westminster, Vancouver and Viotoria,
s decrease of $5,000,which is more
thsn wiped out iu the purchase of a
oruiser for revenue service at a cost of
���25.000, while 15,000 ia-to be expended
yearly on ita maintenance.
The telegraph lines iu British Columbia receive 19,250 out of 192,300 expended by tbs Dominion Government.
It should have dealt more liberally
witb our province No additional
lines appear in course of construttion
except the extension of the Alberni
Hue -the Island again. No allowance
for Eust Kootenay which reqain-s a
telegraph service badly.
The post office service is carried
through in our province at 38,585.
while tbe public wurks agency takes

Where 1* Yukon ?
Yukon isau immense territory which
liea norch of British Columbia aud extend* down to the Arctic regions. It
lies between the Province of Alaska,
���which is its western boundary and
tbe territory of Mackenzie which is ils
eastern boundary. It is named after
its principal river the Yukon, whose
head waters are in this territory, and
whioh flows north-westerly through
Alaska iuto the Retiring Sea. Its extent in urea will exceed that of our
province. As a territory it only came
into existence last year, and previously
formed part of that great and undefined area culled the North West Territories. The Yukou region wus always famed for' its fur and salmon,
with a little placer mining. Now it
has bounded to the front as containing
some ol the richest placer mining in
the world. It bus a abort, hot summer aud a dry, cold winter, much like
that of Minnesota. It is a region of
low undulating ranges, of grassy
mountains and extensive wooded river
valleys The territory is administered
by the Dominion Government, who
lately seut in a detachment of mounted
police lo preserve peace and order
among the miiieis. There has been a
great rush there. There will now be
1500 people where there used ouly to
be some 300. The chief centre is
Circle City and at Bonanza Creek, 200
claims all placer .have been staked out.
There is a depth ot a feet of gravel to
the bed rock. The rook is decomposed
aud can be easily worked. Some of
these claims are very rich and go from
one to twenty.live dollars to the pan
of gravel. ' The highest bit of gravel
went eighty-seven dollars to the psu.
East Kootenay has never been able to
do anything like that. The next great
centre is Forty Mile, au.1 in the now
famous Klondyke district there are 500
claims recorded. It ia considered a
piece of the richest placer ground in
that region.
All the placer claims, when once
opened, oau lie worked during tlie winter time. When winter sets in there
is a solid freeze aud tlie ground is
baked hard. Drifting then can be carried on aa there is uu fear of water
percolating ami drawing out until the
summer season arrives. The gravel
can thus bs easily removed, mined out
as if it was reef rock, piled outside uutil summer arrives wheu.it is treated
hydruulicully, there then being abundance of water although it practically
stops all mining operations until the
airival of next winter.
A great difficulty is how to get there
Tliere are three routes, but everv one
of tbem passes through Auitricun territory, aud there ia much controversy
as to which is the best route. The
first is Up the Sticke-m river, across n
plateau at the foot of tbe Tesliu Luke
whioh extends from the north of B.C.
to the south of Yukon. The second ia
up the Taku river and then serosa to
the Tesliu Lake. This ia a much
shorter route by land. The period for
navigation on these rivers is very-
short, much shorter than that on the
Columbia and the dangers sre more
numerous. The Stickwii route is open
for about three months and the Taku
route about one month. There may be
however good land travel. The Dominion Government ia apending 6,000
dollars for exploring and surveying
the country lying between tbe Siickeeti
river and the sources of the Yukon
river, which is uow going on. The
third route seems to be most favored.
It is up the long narrow inlet called
ths Lynn Canal and then through the
White Pass iuto Yukon. Jt is the
shortest land route. Taking this way
Doualss Island with the far famed
Treadwell gold mine is passed. It is
the largest quarts crushing mill iu tlie
world. This ia *,heroute must favored
by experienced and practical men. A
good trail from the head of navigation,
whiah will remain open, can easily be
constructed. A foreign company
called the Yukon Mining Trading and
Transportation Company is seeking to
obtuin from our Provincial Parliament
a charter to constrict a Hue of railway from the head of navigation on
Taku Inlet to Tesliu Luke. It is to be
hoped this is not to be made a pretext
for grabbing aome more land of the
province, and atill further depriving
ita people of their resources.
It is a difficult country to got into
but it is a hard couutry to get out of
iu the winter time. It has been estimated that the cost of getting out
would nearly defray the expenaps of a
trip around tba world. Everything is
so expensive. It is a forty-five days
travel and everything has to be provided, fur robes, winter underwear,
sl.epfug tents, sleigh aud dags for the
sleighs, snd feed. The expenses would
corns to the neighborhood of one thousand dollars. Yet those who have Ik-en
in speak enthusiastically about ita
great  possibilities,   snd   tbs richest
ground is on the Canadian side. There
are aleo rich grounds on the American
side and there are numerous disputes i
shout that determining line called the
International boundary. Canada again
according to the poor American is the
agreisor and in tlie wrong and her
millers are crossing the line and staking out claims and her government is
collecting dutiea from Canadian and
American alike. It is well our southern boundary has been so long defined,
as there might have beou a possibility
of Trail creek having been found by
Americans to be in the State of Washington. Notwithstanding tbe reported
riches of Yukon, East Kootenay is the
place for us, ���we shall strike it rich
hers.

the Kootenay.
Cspt. F. P, Armstrong of Esst Kootenay, arrived Mondsy iu company witb
James F. Wardner, wbo hss just come
from Montreal. Csptsin Armstrong is
tbe pioneer stesmbost man of tbe
Kootenav and Columbia rivere between
Golden, B. C, and Jppnings, Mont,
He snd Jsmes F. War'dner bave juet
completed the'organization of the International Transportation company,
whioh is to operate a line of eteniners
between Fort Steele snd Jenninge on
the Kootenay river. A steamer will
be run every day between Fort Steele
and Jenninge and will have a capacity
of 100 tons. . Captain Armstrong wil)
be the manager of the international
company. He will slso manage the
Upper Columbia Nsvigstion company,
which will havs a lins of steamers between Fort Steele snd Golden
An important piece ot news brought
over by Captain Armstrong is that be,
the Earl of Norbury snd Mr. Wsrdner
have secured 160 acres of land on the
west bank of the Kootenay river st tbe
point where the Crow's Nest Pass railway is to cross that river and will lay
out a town there, to be called Wardner
���The entire 160 acres will be available
for towneite purposes as it is a beautiful level bench 20 feet above high water, witb higher benches all about it.
It is proposed to mske Wardner the
principal town in East Kootenay. The
steamers running up snd down the
river will lend there and mske connection with the railroad. Jt will also
be a central point for tbe mines, it being s down hill bsal from almoet every
mine within reach of tbe Kootensy
river Id this distriot. Tbs surrounding eounnry is fertile snd covered with
bunch graas. It must be irrigated, but
water ie abundant. Both Captain
Armsirong snd Mr. Wsrdner sre enthusiastic over the beauty of their
townsite and its prospects ss a business centre. Tbey will have tbeir
erown grant in a short time and will
then commence the making of improve*
ments.
Csptsin Armrtrong says ths Csn-
adianPacifio will build the Crow's
Nest Pass road and that aetive preparations for the greet undertaking are
already in progress.
This is from ons of our contemporaries and is correct,
We havs already referred to the
completed arrangements for transportation in East Kootonay matured and
carried through by our energetic townsman, Captain Armstrong. Ths town-
site is a good one. Th* town ie to be
beautifully and artistically laid out
with-afine boulevarded . esplanade to
the rivsr front. We bsvs, however,
one euggestlon, snd that is as to the
naming of the town. Ws should bsvs
preferred the asms '��� Armstrong" or
even "Glenookle" ths old border keep
of the Armstrong Clsn on tb* Scottish
Borders. Ws hops it may not be too
late to aot on tble euggeetioo. We
noted on it ourselvee snd obsnged the
name from Wardner to what it should
be ���'Armstrong" We congratulate
Captain Armstrong on bis " deal" and
hope thst bis expectations msy be
realised.

INCORPORATION.
Local Mining Companies Formed.
Tbe British Columbia Gasette tbis
week contsins 17S pages of advertising
matter���what a valuable property -
don't we wish we were proprietors.
We have waded through its pagesa nd
find thst 238 new companies have been
incorporated. Every letter in the
alphabet except X has been invoked iu
the naming of the companies. The
list commences at Aaron'e Rod and
ends with Zenda. The amount of capital involved is over $300,000,000 ; qot
a bad week's work. As we contain-
pfate tbis record we feel tempted'*.o
exclaim with Dominie Samson ''Prodigious I" Tbe craze for mines and
mining seems . to bave struck every
pereon, from tbe Hon. Edgar Dewdney
Lieut.-Governor, witb hie ealary of
19000 a year, down to railway brake*
man at Donald. Even tbe Hon. J. H.
Tomer, Premier and Minister of Finance and Agriculture, with bis salary
of 15000 a year, goes in for a deal���
These two gentlemen had better keep
out of it as company promoters. Occupying the position they do their
reputation will not be enhanced thereby.
As msny companies witb their head
office at Vancouver bave been registered ss there are streets in the city. 106
companies register witb a million eae\
Two companies who are to operate on
tbe North Fork of the Kettle River in
the Kettle River mining division, are
registered witb five millions and six
millions respectively���They might
have made the capital fifty and sixty
millions when they were at it. The
six million company bave three claims
while the five million company have
fourteen claims���Twenty-seven com*
panies register witb a capital of half a
million each, ten companies with two
millions esob, eixteen companies with
a quarter of a million each, thirteen
wiih a million and a half each, twelve
are content with the more modest capital of 8100,000 each.
The public debt of the Dominion of
Canada is not much over the gross
capital involved jn these companies
floated this week. It is somewhere
about $318,000,000. We wonder what
next week will bring forth.
The following are the local companies which have been registered:
