A CRITICAL REVIEW
Of
the Mining Situation  in
Rossland Camp
And Elsewhere���The Feeling: More
Acute Than Generally Imagined���
What Slump in Stocks Aggregates.
"pedal to the Minor.
Robsland, Feb 21.���The carnival is
over, and what might bo termed as
nervous prostration after au extra strain
took place, I wrote you last week about
the feeling here. It was a little inclined to be panicky this week. During the
carnival, which in the way of attendance was practically a failure, the situation was relieved by temporary excitement. The feeling of depression, however, is only nervous, and is being dispelled to-day by the war news. There
are some features of the labor situation
which have not been publicly discussed,
but which have been regarded by some
as serious. A little, perhaps unnecessary, feeling was created by'the arriva'
' maxim."
i
The chances are that for Borne time
there will be little available money for
promoting new deals Advices from the
east everywhere are of the same character; mining stocks ars absolutely
dead ; banks wdll not advance on them ;
no properties are being sold. The investing public want to see some returns
on what tbey have already soaked before investing more; but, of course, as
soon as the money market is settled and
confidence is restored by a few good
dividends the mining and stock broker
will get in his work as before, and there
will be "propositions" galore. The man
who speculates when times are good and
threatens never to plunge again, is very
much like the man who "will never get
drunk any more." It will be some time,
however, before tbe proper conditions
arrive for a boom in stocks. It takes a
man a good long shift on the sober tack
before be forgets his last sensation. I
have had the pleasure of receiving from
the east a long list of extracts taken
from eastern papers regarding the situation in mining, referring to tbe closing
down of the War, Eagle, the eight-hour
law, etc., accompanied by a long letter.
They are together most interesting as
showing the feeling as it seems to almost
unanimously exist back there, and the
letter written by a careful, well informed
financial man reflects what seems to be
atthearmorv of a "maxim." It was i the common sentiment. All together
supposed there was some necessary con-1 the circumstances of the pastfew months

D'Aleneritis difficult tc'say. There is
no special significance bo far as a 1 can
learn connected with its presence. All
local battalions of militia are being supplied. That the mine owners feared
there might be trouble is proven by a
posse of special constables at the War
Eagle mine since being closed down. It
was reported that a freight train was
seized by miners going out, or rather
they demanded a free ride into God's
country, which they got. These little
things show that the feeling is more
acute than might appear ou the face of
it. The mine owners hope by closing
jlown to eliminate a certain disturbing
element and then treat with those who
stay. The hope is expressed that a
speedy settlement may be reached and
the satisfactory solution of the trouble
in Slocan is looked upon as auguring a
similar success in the Rossland camp.
People are willing to stand a little pinching for a time if a permanent settlement
can be reached, because with the certain conclusion of the war in our favor
there will be such a revival in the interior of British Columbia as has never
been seen yet. If there be nothing to
retard progress and keep the mines
in-operative both development and output will be very great next summer. Legitimate stocks will
go up to their proper value. Many, of
course, will stay "slumped," because
they represent no real work or present
values. The recent slump is greater
than most people imagine. 1 was talking with a mining man the other day,
who bad been figuring on the matter,
and he estimated that on the leading
stocks of British Columbia there bad been
a shrinkage of over $25,000,000, that is,
taking the highest and lowest quotations
reached. Of course, that did not reprc
sent all loss because not all stocks
changed   hands   at   the prices quoted
Sion, but such it is.
I bad almost forgotten to refer to the
carnival, except incidentally. So far as
the events were concerned it was successful ; so far as its results go it was a
failure. Boundary did well with the
hockey team; and barely missed the
championship. There were a great
number of hockey and curling contests ;
the ski and snow shoeing races were
very good and interesting; the horse
racing was furious, but not fast. A
unique feature of the carnival was the
ladies' hockey match between Nelson
and Kossland teams, and a still more
unique, feature was the fact that 25 la
dies walked into the Clarendon Cafe
after the match aud had a banquet on
the head of it. The members of tbe
Kossland team entertained the members
of the Nelson team���all the same men.
On Tuesday morning Duncan Moll
tosh went up to Wellington camp and
paid off the men on the Winnipeg,
which has been closed down. The fol
lowing telegram was sent to the stock
exchanges: "Winnipeg mine closed
down to-day pending consolidation
with the Brandon and Golden Crown."
It is understood that an important
movement iB on foot in the direction in
dicated in Mr. Mcintosh's telegram.
It is proposed to use the main shaft of
the Brandon and Golden Crown for the
output of the two properties. Both
mines are developed by shafts to
depth of 300 feet.
It is understood that there is a move
on foot for a consolidation into one
company of the Wiarton, Waterloo and
Koutenoy mines in Camp McKinney.
The Wiarton is owned by a Spokane
company in which C. D. Hand, the
Well known mining broker, iB a large
owner, who was the chief promoter,
Considerable of the stock is held in Ontario. Tbe Fontenoy is largely controlled by the Dunsmuirs, of Victoria.
The entertainment Wednesday evening in Miller,s hall on behalf of St.
Jude'B Mission was largely attended,
about 250 persons being present. The
programme consisted of two parts���the
first concert and the last dramatic. Miss
Minckler led off with a pleasing overture on the piano. Such well known
local favorites as A. G. Simpson, J.
Michellet, J. Strong, J. E. Hooper, Mrs.
Travis and Mr. Lees rendered songs that
were all well received. Mr. Micehllet
scored a special success in " Wouldn't
That be Nice," which was full of local
hits. The success of the coucert part
waa somewhat marred by the piano being placed on the floor on a level with
the audience instead of the platform.
In the drama entitled " Done on Both
Sides," F. Lewin and J. E. Hooper took
the principal parts, materially assisted
by A. Ferguson from behind the scenes,
and the representation afforded much
amusement, not the least on account of Mr. Hooper's improvisations.
Altogether the evening was much enjoyed.
A session of the Supreme Court is be-
week, Mr.
Justice Martin presidiug. Two local
cases are being tried, that of Rendell k
Co.. v. City of Greenwood and Miller
Bros., v. City of Greenwood. On Monday, city clerk Taylor, city solicitor
Leamy, city engineer Alston, C. JR.
Shaw, P L. S., H. C. Shaw, solicitor
for the plaintiff, C. H. Sansome, R.
Smailes and E. Miller went to Rossland
to attend. A. M. Whiteside is also in
attendance and Mayor Hardy was expected to reach there on Monday evening from Victoria. As the Miner waB
going to press a telephone message was
received stating that a verdict against
the city had been rendered for $6,500.
For the information of enquirers it is
mentioned that any individual has the
same right to locate at Nome as any
other place in the United States. The
same general mining law applies there
as it does in every other state or territory in the Union. No leases of the
beaches have or can  be made.    Any-
Victoria, Feb. 22.���(Special to the
Mineu.) The political situation remains
unchanged, Iu the presence of the terrible news from South Africa of the
death of a number of British Columbia
boys, all tbe political r.ctivity is suspended. The House met yesterday only
to adjourn. It is now believed that the
Government will get through witli the
redistribution bill, as Martin seems disposed to support them. It is taken for
granted that once passed the Government will ask the Governor for dissolution, trusting to its strength, to be
brought to them iu the upper country
by the bill, to bring them back with a
good working majority. Prentice on
the other band has moved the repeal of
tbe eight-hour law, the Opposition evidently preferring to go to tne country
on that issue.   	
Victoria, B. C, Feb. 20 ���[Special to
the Miner.]���The proceedings of the afternoon weee-ftUsyslnM iu aco��ni��ne��i'j^mrhe1d at Rossland this
with the announcement that the government will make no attempt to carry
further the coal mines regulation bill,
the liquor license, amendment act, or
any other pending measures. It was
arranged at this morning's caucus that
the program was to pass the redistribution bill and dissolve the House at
once, or else accept defeat upon this
measure. Of course, if the measure
goes through, it is quite possible the
government will change its policy aud
endeavor to carry on the administration until defeated on a vote. Otherwise the session will end with virtually
none but minor corrective measure
made law, and 35 public and private
hills of importance.
It is announced tonight that before
going out of power, (as they will do ad
soon as Higgins' censure motion is
reached, a majority being pledged there-
toi the government will advance as far
as possible, a general bill dealing with
the employment of Asiatic labor, and eo   bod   ctn mine on the beaches whereno

measures, with emergency estimates,
before the dismissal of the administration is brought, about.

the slopes below high watemark are

represents net profit on 45 tons of Winnipeg ore, after paying all railroad and

THE POLITICAL POT
How it Seethes and Boils at
Victoria.
The Outcome of the Deadlock Quite as
Much of a Problem as Ever���The
Government on the Ragged Edge of
Defeat���What will the Governor do?
Victoria, Feb. 17.���(Special to the
Miner.) Still another week and tbe
Government lives! Even its warmest
friends did not believe that the middle
of February would find this decrepit administration staggering along beneath
the weight of public business, which
they are unable to conduct decently.
But tbey have survived and the members of the cabinet themselves are probably as much surprised as the country
at the evidence they have given of tenacity of life.
Many thought the end had come,
when, on Thursday night, the Government asked for an adjournment until
the following Monday. This was interpreted by the Opposition to mean
that the cabinet had thrown up the
sponge, and that if they were unable in
tbe interim to arrange a compromise
with some of tbe Opposition, that they
would make an important statement to
the House on Monday. Readers of the
Miner will know before this appears,
whether or not this supposition is correct, but your correspondent at least be-
lieveB that it is entirely erroneous. The
adjournment was for an entirely different purpose, namely, to take into the
consideration of all the members in
caucus, the changes contemplated in the
redistribution bill. Naturally the completion of this bill will require a great
deal of attention and consultation between the cabinet and its supporters,
and it is doubtful indeed, if it can be
completed even by Monday.
In the meantime Mr. Dunamuir will
return, and if the Coal Mines Regulation Act amendments are passed the
government will stand in imminent
danger of defeat. Mr. Prentice will oppose them on this question and although Harry Helmcken is understood
to be in favor of the bill il is likely that
he would alter bis decision if the fate of
the, government hung upon bis vote.
This would force tbe Semlin administration to the country on this question
which would be a very poor election cry
as it would strengthen the government
only in Nanaimo, where it is already
strong and therefore has nothing to
gain If, therefore, defeat is to be met
next week, the administration will
probably be astute enough to receive
their death blow on a fair and equitable
redistribution measure which would
make the very best kind of cry upon
which to appeal to the country.
Such a measure when brought down
will doubtless contain many features
which will be objectionable to members on both sides of the House. It is
reasonably certain for instance, that it
will provide for the wiping out of pocket
boroughs, like Esquimalt. This would
deprive D. W. Higgins of his seat and
would mean his retirement from public
life, as it is very unlikely that he would
ever again secure a seat, especially in a
strange municipality.
The sensation of the week, of course,
was tbe attack of Joe Martin on the
Finance Minister, out of which,  thanks
to the assistance of the Opposition, the
flprid member for Vancouver emerged
triumphantly. The view taken by the
latter was that Joe's attack was too much
in the nature of a blow below the belt to
be countenanced or supported by the
party. Of course a few of them did,
those holding up their hands for Martin's motion being Booth, Robertson,
Higgins, Martin, Helmcken and Bryden.
Yet Messrs Turner and Baker positively
refused to have anything to do with the
motion after Mr. Cotton's distinct denial of tbe charges. The better class of
politicians in the city approve of the
course, and regard it as quite in keeping
with the dignified and gentlemanly
course which Mr. Turner has followed
while in power and which he continues
to follow in Opposition.
Tbe matter was therefore disposed of
so far as the House is concerned, but
there is still Martin to be reckoned with,
and that gentleman has signified bis intention of pushing it to a conclusion.
After the adjournment of the House, he
stated that he had evidence in his possession which if he published would
drive tbe Finance Minister out of public
life in this province, and that he could
bring witnesses from Denver to prove
what be stated.
Matters are certainly in a very unsatisfactory condition, and the problem is
what is the Governor going to do about
it? He is almost sure to do something
sensational, as past events abundantly
demonstrate. The conviction is growing
that he will not summon any niemberof
the present House, but will call in some
outsider to undertake the duties of government. The province badly needs
some strong and able man who would
be able to break the deadlock, but such
a one has not yet appeared.
A TRAGEDY OF THE WAR.

THE OUTLLOOK.
iReference is made in the  Rossland
Irrespondence to the  state of feeling
] the east respecting  mining matters,
lich is corroborated by Paul Johnson
Id otliers,  who  have   returned  from
le larger   cities   in  Canada and the
I nited States.   Without any  doubt the
l.uation   is   very   much   exaggerated
jere; but even though tho "scare" is
lit at all justified by facts as they exist,
vertheless it is having its  effect,  and
.s been a serious loss to the  Province.
I tat, however,  tba feeling  referred  to
[11 not last long is  undoubted.    In the
mtidary  there is  nothing   connected
| th any of the properties being (level-
;d   to   shake the confidence of   the
Istern investor.   In Slocan, of course,
I ere have been serious  labor troubles,
Irtunately  now  settled.    In   Rossland
le  War  Eagle  has closed  down,  and
| wsibly bud  management  ou  the part
the Toronto owners, rather than  the
|  t itHelf, has lent an unfavorable ilgni-
:ance to the circumstance; but  so  far
is known there are no grounds for heaving that tho War Eagle is not as val-
I ililc and promising a  mine as  it   has
���retofore been represented to be.   The
I ar, the high rate of interest, the labor
| oubles,  and stock jobbing are the ele- j
ents which have created  the  present
ndition of affairs in the east.    So far
the mines  themselves,  or their de-
���lopment or  prospects, are concerned,
ere is not the slightest cause for the
iprcssion   that   has   taken   place.    A
an can invest at the present time with
irfect confidence,  and  with  prospects
profit never before  presented in the
ining camps of British Columbia.
been made in the past, and there is the
best reason for believing, that Mr. Cotton is, while wielding the sword with
one hand, holding out the olive leaf
with the other. He is the central figure
of the whole situation, and his ambitions constitute the chief political
issue. He is simply fencing for position.
If he can effect a coalition or reconstruction he will do so cheerfully and
avoid a general election. Almost any
Bet of colleagues that does not include
Joe Martin will suit him. He is open
for any rearrangement of political lines
that will make him leader and chief
political factor. If, on the other hand,
he is defeated, he has" made the issues
to go to the country on. He will fight
just as hard as though he never smiled
upon and flirted witli his opponents.
The bill to nmund the Coal Mines Regulation Act is a good labor issue to be defeated upon, and the Redistribution
Bill will be popular on the Mainland,
and parts of the Island. Cotton has
learned to play the game of politics
well. He is, to adopt a slangy phrase,
the "smoothest" man in British Columbia to-day. While he was allied with
what was the old Opposition, he
preferred the other side, and his natural
instincts belong to the leading men of
that party. Therefore, he has always
been in favor of a coalition as a solution
of the situation. He would bave joined
hands with them years ago if a
favorable opportunity have been offered.
Notwithstanding the fierce attacks on
his personal character by Martin, from
which ordeal he has not by any means
emerged scatheless, he has, if anything,
strengthened himself personally, because
people resent that kind of warfare, especially when it is dictated by considerations of personal pique and hatred.
As to the result in case of a dissolution
on present lines, it would be very much
like putting so many cuts in a bag as to
who would come out on top. People
are realizing more and more the absurdity of such a situation and beginning to see that for solid administration
of the affairs of tlie government it is
necessary to have straight Dominion
party lines, even though the real issues
are sometimes obscured by clouds of
partisan hue. Kvery party, Du matter
how strong, will, at somg time go to
pieces, but an equally Btrong one will
take its place, ensuring stable government of some kind. A government,
whose element! are hold together by
purely personal considerations and personal sympathies, can last only so long
as these remain in hurniony.
THE POLITICAL SITUATION.
At the time of printing it is impos-
i\e to  form any definite idea   of  the
tcome. The Government is appar-
itly, so far as the House is concerned,
iaten, and the rumors that have been
lating around in tlie political atmo-
liere for some time, in fact, lor a year
more, regarding a coalition or reeon-
ruction are again coming prominently
the fore. The Miner is thoroughly
ill aware of several  efforts  that  have

THE   GREENWOOD  MINER
Phou
Important Mining Suits.
Three cases of exceptional interest to
prospectors and mining men were tried
yesterday before Mr. Justice Martin. In
the case of Sloan vs. Gonnley, the plaintiff brought action for a declaration that
he had a partnership in the defendant's
interest in the Black Prince and Dundas
No. 2, two well known claims near Slocan City. It appears that Gormley had
a grubstake agreement with a prospector
named Sehomberg, and that this agreement ran out on October 25th, 1895.
Sloan claimed that he was in with Gormley on this agreement, though the latter
denies he bad any share in it. It transpired that while this sgreeruent was in
force Sehomberg discovered the ground
now covered by the Black Prince, but it
waB already staked. Subsequently the
claim ran out, and Sehomberg rustaked
itundera fresh agreement with Gormley.
The judge held that Schomberg's discovery of tlie ground whicli was afterwards
included in the Black Prince, but which
��� was not vacant at the time of its discovery, was not the discovery of a mineral
claim as contemplated by tbe agreement.
Judgment was accordingly entered for
the defendant.
The case of Blundell vs. Muir followed,
and this involved a point of mining law
which was brought before the courts for
the first time. Blundell was the recorded owner of the Speculator claim on
Morning mountain, but did no work on
it last year, and Muir staked it as the
Daphne when it ran out. It also appears that Muir did an assessment work
on it on his own account, and Blundell
recorded this as his own und got a certificate of work.
Blundell brought an action for trespass, and for a declaration that the Speculator was a good claim as against the
Daphne.   He was, however, nonsuited.
Another case of interest to prospectors was Crutehfield vs. Harbottle. The
evidence showed that W. T. Beadles located the May Dav mineral claim-on
May 1st, 1H97, and on May 6th transferred it to G. F. Harbottle, who, however, did not record his bill of sale until
April 29th, 1898. On July 23rd, 1897,
Beadle's license lapsed, and on October I
30th, 1897, the plaintiff restaked the
claim as the Equalizer, and is now ask
ing for a declaration that his location is
good as againBt the May Day.

Professor���"Suppose you were engaged In the autopsy of a subject, and it
gave signs of life, what would you do?"
Student���"I think I should���change the
subject, sir."
"Fred and I wished with a wish-bone
last night." May���"Who won?" Ella
���"I don't know, and we didn't care,
particularly; he was wishing for me,
and I was wishing for him."
"I dont care for your poem, 'The Song
of the Lark,' " remarked the editor.
The poet sighed wearily. "To tell the
truth," he replied, "I myself much
prefer the lay of the hen.".
"My husband has a great advantage
over most men." "Indeed?" "Yes.
He walks in his sleep." "I don't see
what advantage that can be to a person." "Why, he can carry the baby all
night long, and still' get his natural
rest."
Malietoa Tanus, who was declared to
be King of Samoa by Chief Justice
Chambers, has asked for an education.
His request was forwarded by Consul-
General Osbom, now at Apia, to Secretary Hay, who has approved it, and has
suggested in a note to Great Britain and
Germany that the three powers pay the
expenses of the young man while he attends school in Europe.
General Roberts, commanding in
South Africa, if he enjoys the distinction of being the shortest general in the
British army, can lay claim (outside
royalty! to possessing the longest list of
degrees. Officially "Bobs" is Baron
Roberts of Kandahar and Waterford, T.
C, K.P., G. C.B..G. C. S. I-, G. C. 1.
E., V. C, D. C. L., L. L. D. He became
"Dr. Roberts, of Dublin," nearly twenty
years before Mr. Chamberlain received
a similar distinction.
At an entertainment in Edinburgh,
just as the Boer war broke out, the audience stopped the performance to sing
the national anthem. So far this was
all right, but more followed. A few hotheaded spirits caught sight of a uniform,
and the wearer, despite his protests was
seized and carried around the building.
When he regained terra tirma, some one
aKked him for the name of his regiment,
his uniform not being familiar. "Itegi-
nient���!" was the surprised reply ; "man,
I am the doorkeeper, What's gann
wrung wi' yea'?"
A man of letters, who visited Washington recently, appeared at but one
dinner party, says the Washington Post,
during his stay. Then he sat next to
the daughter of a noted naval officer.
Her vocabulary is of :i kind peculiar to
very young girls, but she rattled awny
at the famous man without a moment's
respite. It was during a pause in the
general conversation that she said to
him: "I'm awfully stuck on Shakespeare. Don't you think he's terribly interesting." Everybody listened to hear
the great man's brilliant reply, for as a
Shakespearean scholar be has few peers,
"Yes," he said, solemnly, "I do think
he is interesting. I think he is more
than that. I think ShakeBpeare is just
simply too cute for anything."
Quite a sensational story has been
going the rounds of a rebuke administered to Mrs. Arthur Paget by Swinburne, the poet. Lady Paget, and M.
"Bertie" Stopford, who is the crack cotillion leader of London, went to call on
Swinburne to ask him to write the
masque for the forthcoming charity benefit over which Mrs. Paget had supervision. The poet received them in a
dirty dressing-gown, and berated them
and the charity schemes in general in so
vigorous a manner that Mrs. Taget and
Mr. Stopford made a hurried escape from
the house. There seems te be a reaction
in London concerning these charity entertainments for the benefit of tbe orphans and widows of the soldiers killed
in the Transvaal war, especially those
arranged by Americans. They have
been attacked as schemes simply to force
an entrance Into society. Not oneof the
great South African millionaires has
contributed a penny to them.
It is just a year since Lord Curzon
was appointed Viceroy of India. He is
already proclaimed as "the most autocratic and most popular viceroy" and
this despite the fact that the difficulties
of the year have been numerous, including the plague, tho famine, the finance,
and frontier issues, and the question of
furnishing help to the empire in South
Africa. At the present moment, 3,178,-
000 persons are on the relief lists in the
distressed districts. A remarkable feature of the situation is the almost unanimous praise of the native press. The
only criticism seems to be that Lord
Curzon is too autocratic, while he and
Lady Curzon are too lavish in expenditure, and insist on too much ceremony.
The charge of being too autocratic does
not matter much in a country essentially
needing a strong man at the helm.
Lord Curzon has not offended tbe proudest native nobility, who are enthuiastic
in his praise. The social charge has
been absurdly exaggerated in England
and America, a well-informed Xew York
Sun correspondent writes, but "there is
a grain of fact in the statement that the
unusually elaborate ceremony and
punctiliousness have rather dampened
the ardor of Anglo-Indian society."
General Lawton, according to the
Chicago Journal, never wearied of repeating the following story, which, he
said, illustrated the irrepressible good
humor of the negro soldier: "The night
of the El Caney," said the general,
"when my division was inarching back
to El l'aso to take up a new position
next, morning, 1 was sitting with Major
(1, Oreighton Webb, inspector-general of
my staff and one of the pluckiest men I
know, at the side of the road. The men
were filing past and we watched them.
They were tired out but full of ginger.
The day was just beginning to dawn
when we heard some one coining down
the road, talking at the top of his lungs.
He talked ami laughed ami laughed ami
talked, and the men with him were chattering and joking. " 'Here come the
colored troops," said Webb, and, sure
enough, the Twenty-filth infantry came
along. The man who was doing the
talking was a six foot, corporal; he carried two guns and two cartridge belts
loaded full, and the man to whom the
extra gun and cartridge belt belonged
was limping along beside him. The tall
corporal was weighed down with his
blanket and haversack, hut in his arms
he carried a dog, tbe mascot of his company. "'Here, corporal,' said Webb,
'didn't you inarch all last night?' 'Yes,
sir,'said the corporal, trying to salute.
'And didn't you fight all day?' Sure
sir.' 'And haven't you been marching
ever since ten o'clock to-night?' 'Yes,
sir,' said the corporal, 'Well, then,'
shouted Webb, 'what in thunder are you
carrying that dog for?' 'Why, boss, tbe
dog's tired,' was the reply. Webb just
rolled over in the dirt and laughed and
cried like a boy."

DEADWOOD
DEADWOOD, the latest town to seek public favor, is situated in the
heart of Deadwood Camp, about three miles from Greenwood, and an
equal distance from the B. C. Copper company's smelter. It is reached
by a spur of the Columbia and Western railway. It is surrounded by
such famous mines as the Mother Lode, Sunset, Buckhorn and Morrison,
which of themselves assure a Large Payroll, but exclusive of these there
are a hundred partially developed properties surrounding the town, many
of which will become paying mines, so that it does not require very much
foresight to decide that the Town of Deadwood will have in the near
future a sufficiently large payroll to support a city of some importance.

CHE KETTLE EIVER RAILWAY.
l Statement Made hy One of the Grand Forks
Promoters,
J. A.   Smith,   Grand   Forks,   better
<;nown as "Doc" Smith by  his friends,
was in Rossland the other^day en route
to Ottawa to assist in promoting the
above charter, which is being applied for
there, and had an interview with the
MiNdb, From tho following it would
appear to be the main aim in this matter to benefit the C. P. R., but it is probable when he arrives in Ottawa he will
find the 0. I'. R. very blind to its own j
interests and imreciprocal so far as the
Kettle River railway is concerned.
"This  company,"   said   Mr.   Smith,
"will first construct a line from  Grand
Forks to Republic.    Then  it  will also
build a line from Grand  Forks up the
north fork of the Kettle river, and  tap
all the camps along that branch.     Fori
the present the idea is to construct first!
to Republic so as   to  give   the   miners
there a chance to transport their ore to I
(irand Forks, where it may be smelted.
For the time being, at least, and perhaps
for some time to come, this road will he '
a feeder fur the Canadian  Pacific railway.    The money necessary to construct
the line has all been subscribed,    Later
on, perhaps, the Great Northern may he
extended into Republic, and this will
give the Kettle River Valley  railway an i
American outlet.   The petition  for the |
charter is before the  Dominion  house '
now.    It has been favorably reported by
the house railway committee, and its
backers consider that it has a good chance
of passing.   It is not thought that the
C. 1'. R. will fight the granting of a charter to this road for the reason that it will
give them a feeder.    The  C. P. R.   will
haul all the goods consigned to Republic
as far as Grand  Forks  aud  then turn
j them over to the   Kettle   Valley   road.,
J They will thus enjoy a monopoly  of the .
trade of Republic.    What we arc asking
j ior will not be a detriment to the country ; on the contrary, it will bring trade
! into it ami, therefore, be of help in build;
ing it up. That trallic going into Re-
public will be handled by the C. P. R.,
and the ores from smith of the line will
be brought into Canada to he reduced.
No one can, therfore, with justice or
reason, object to the granting of the
charter "

This is how the preface to the " Sky
Pilot," Ralph Connor's new book begins. It is a story of the foothills of the
Rockies, and like " Black Rock" which
has made the author famous, it breathes
a local atmosphere and partakes of the
soil. A book which is homo-spun, provided it be well written, is all the more
interesting and > effective. The " Sky
Pilot" is published in Toronto, hy the
Westminster company, and is for sale ut
Smith & McRae's. Its predecessor,
" Black Rock " had a phenomenal sale.
