The prospecttrs and mintrs will

Tho ideas of each intelligent miner
a3 they have btcoma matured by
hard labor and industrious thought
should be embodied in somo manner
to become available to the mining
business, ami I here is no menu:) by
which this can be done more effectually than by organizing societies at
the central locations. It matters
little by what name it be called���
each locality might suit its own
lasts or convenience as to that���although RtvolStoke has furnished an
example at eoiae trouble and post,
hiving the ground work ol an organization, by forming a local camp nnd
inviting the formation of olher.-i in
other place:;, tho completed and central orgauizatieu to ba known as
tho Miner's Association of British
Columbia, and to bo composed of
di legates from tha vari -ua local
camps, Wo do not conceive of any
better or mora effective way to bring
together and consolidate tht be.-it
opinions of thoughtful and intelli-
intelligent miners, nnd to prepare
them for presentation lo the Legislature, Tin results thus obtained
would bo ollertd aa the combined
and oryetalisied opinions of leading
miners of tbt province, and would
carry a weight to which no expression of individual opinion would be
Each mining tamp may have some
particular grievance, local in itself,
which it would like to have redrtsflad
and if a local uociety is formed, the
central asBoeiation would bo asked to
take it up, and when favorably considered, it wonld be presented to tbt
governing authorities with ti force
thut would ensure to it the most respectful consideration.
A oaso like this might arisr: An
interested party might have somo
selfish end to carry out, that would
be damaging to quartz mining in a
certain lucidity,if net gener.illy,and if
he could in'ike it appear to tbe placer
miners in tbe legisluti r <bb a plausible
scheme, at Itast one not likely to
damage thoir particular interests���
and thoy beiug ao ignorant of and at
indifferent to the rights of quartz
miners p.s tlm average legislator
proved himself lo be lust winttr, the
measure would bo very likely to pass
in defiunoe of opposition by those
interests wero directly affeotod, This
would not occur if a Miner's Aaso-
ci.ition wero formed to guard against
the enactment of laws detrimental to
br.th quartz and placer mining.
The Miner'i Association 1ms no
|,o]iiioil oniin to accomplish, ISaTOftB
that were made in June to invtlvt it
in the eltotinn then pending, wero
reBtnted as foreign to its objects and
wo hope to see its logilimnle sphere
enlarged ami ils influence extended,
until iht purposes which were originally contemplated in its organization
are accomplished.

20 milts below, the lirat day, Although called rapids thoy are a
series of cascades V/t to 11 milss
long whi:h took two days to got
over. Tht upper shute it was found
necessary to portage, but they run
tho lower sliutt which proved to bo
vtry dangerous, iho boat striking a
rock which threw it nearly on end,
but they got over without damage
except shipping a couple of barrels
ot water. They found John McDonald and a German named August Borgmao, camped at the foot of
the rapids, whsrt they bad built a
oabin and put ia supplita for a winter campaign hunting, the principal
game being beaver, caribou and
martin���a good section for fur-bearing eniaaals of inrieat kinds.
The old Moberly trail from Donald down the Columbia as far ns
Cnnco river tr to within a few miles
of it, whioh was cut out whtu explorations for tbo railroad route
wore being prosecuted, is still a
well miirkod trail along the east side
of the river, and would require but
little expended on it to put it in
good order. Etighteen miles bolow
Surprise rapids is Kinbaektt Lake, 7
to 8 miles long and 2 to 3 wide, a
beautiful body of watur, of great
depth, with bluff rocky bIioivs and a
fine gravelly bunch nearly all round
The observations made or, the timber c' that toction, confirms the report of Arthur St. Cyr, which was
published in tho Stab last week,
with this exception in its' favor, that
it did eot overstate the size of tbo
trees, bnt rather the contrary.
At 18-Mile Ripids between Kin-
basket Like and Canos Rivor, in it.i
present stage of shallow wattr, the
river was found to 1)9 very bad, and
in thrtt places the boat bad to bt
lowerad with a lint. It was hero al

Johnston iu 1885 was drowned on

Sir. Kellie Interviewed.
A reporter of tha Colonist inhsr;
vitwpil Mr. Ksllie on hie arrival at
Vietoiia, aid wt make tht following
extracts ;
"Mr. Kellie hs.�� recently returned
from a visit to the miuing  tampc of
Kootenay Lake, which district he is
of opinion will prove to ht  ont  of
tht rithest, if not Ilia ri -litet, on iht
Amtrioan continent.   Tht  devtlop-

Bell viaiui���has dcnior.Mrjted btjond
ptradvtnturt that tin district pose-'
tssta  numerous ledges of  phenomenal oxttnt and  richness.    Many
>on�� of picked ort havt been shipped
during the season to ihe American
smelters for traatinont.   The lack of
rail and wageu roads  seriously   re-'
tarda the progress of  ths  distrist,-
The short line now nearly completed
by tbe C. V. 11. between  Kootenay
Lake and Columbia  river  will  no6
meet the neuls of tin district so far
as railway communicatitn is toncern-
ed.   They should immediately build
a line from Revebtoke to Kootenay
Lukt end   timo  furnish   a  regular
line of communication.   The American lines are approaching tht bound-
try, and next spring the Spokane 3c
Northern and tht Northern Faoifio
will havt staamers  plyinj on  tbt
Kootenay and  Columbit livers  to
tie   Kootenay hike  mines.      Mr,
Kellie is of tue opinion that the district and province would   batnfit bv
'.he extension of thete lines  to  Nel-
ion.   The McKinley bill lies done a
gtod thing for the distritt, rtmarked
Mr, Kellie.    It will compel  tht
Bmeitiug of nil ore within its boundaries, and iu a abort time there will
beanough ore mined to keep half a
dozen snu-lters busy.   Dr, Hendryx
will erect one on the aito of the Blue
Bull claim to treat the  ore  of  that
wonderful property,   Mr. Kellie  is
hopeful thUt ���tlio government will
pursue a liberal railway and wagon
vagou road policy during the ctming
"The reason that the Rsvelstokt
smelter was not now in operatioi,
was solely because ore otuld not be
brought to tho works. This would
be obviated iu the spring. The Ct,
owned mints at the Hot Springs
camp sufficient to furnish thtni with
all the oit tht'y needed, and tht
railway would be in operation by
springtime between the lake and the
"Along the Kootenay River from

Thia is at present uudtr restrve to
Baillio-Grohman, whose reclamatioi

almost insane character. The outlet
of Kootenay Lake ie much smaller
than the inlet from tho eonth or from
tho Lardeau River, anl when buow
is molting the water rises a foot per
day to a hci^bt of 10 and 12 feet,
To prevent this it would be neceesa-
ry to spend milliona of dollars in
widening the enlist, Mr, Kellie
claims that Grehman has failed in
his cottract already with the Government, and will advocate the cancelation of the contract, and the
removal of tht reserve,"

A wtll-knowu young blacksmith of

which he made Wednesday evening,
Tho young man in question, had
recently fallen in love with a fair
East Bridgeport maiden. The
young lady has a twin sisttr, who resembles her so much that it is at
tiuns very hard to distinguish ono
from tho other.
The voting man called at the
house oi his tweelheart lust night
for the purpoje of whiapering love'a
message to tho maiden fair. It happened, however, that she was out,
and the yonng man wts met at the
coor by the twin Bister, who received
him cor Rally and expected to entertain him until her sister1! return.
Tha young man, however, supposed that tht young lady who received him was the one whom ho
adored. He therefore broached tbo
the subject of his love to her end implored her to accept him as her afli-
anced husband,
The young lady had hardly time
to reply when her sitder entered tht
room. The youug mun was then informed that before him flood bis

plandsr, all getting off by or through
some missionary paying back tha
8100 aud a cow, to the very J. P.
