The Kooicnay (11.(1) Smelling
and Trading Syudicute by the
starting uf thoir Bmolter here
this week herald the approach
of a new epoch in the development nf the mining districts of
our province. In the luce Of
ntiini'i'euB difficulties they havo
peisi'i'vorod, and although they
have only sufficient ore on band
to .nuke the blowing in of tho
furnace financially a toss, it is
hoped lhat ny thus deflionstrai��
iuu tbat our ores emu be treated
successfully ut huino, will enoour-.
ago mine owners to develop
their properties, and make lhe
mining ami reduction or ores in
this province lhe industry it
should iie. Il is unfortunate to
Bay the least thai the company
have not enough ore to run the
smeller continuously; yet this
experiment cannot have othor
than a good effect in eucouia,^-
ing capitalists to invest in our
milling properties, providing as it
will a ho..ie n.tii'kot for all gold,
silver and lead ores. It probably
required the step lhe company
have taken to givo tho outside
world conlitlcnci) in the mineral
wealth of llio country, ami what
is a loss at present ro doubt will
result in profit in days not lur

elections wore sprung on tbo
people of iho country, und as a
consequence many who bad not
taken tbo trouble to get their
names pincod on tho voters' liets
wore disfranchised by their own
negligence, Had there boon a

by right are entitled to vole

From Different  Points.
In referring to the revolutions
made before the privileges aud elections committee of the provincial
parliament the Empire Bays: "Oue
tbing stands out prominently iu connection with the investigation at
Ottawa of the allegations of irregularity uml frauds, und tlmt is the
fiiilhfiiluess and vigor with which
the goverunment are pursuing the
inquiry aud expressing a detonuiiiii-
tii n to prohe nil the charges to the
bottom, There is no I'eur of the
whitewashing net of concealuieut of
censiirtilile doings or of wholesale
denials of the charges."
Speaking on the same su'-ject tho
Globe says: "The only remedy ado-
quote to tne case is to punish all
whether knight or servitor, miiiia-
te-r or cletk, who have committed
fraud or con .lived at their commission to the lull extremity of lhe law
and then for the electors to oust the
wind;' cabinetuiul put honest men
iu their place. The cry tint a
ohaugo of government would prove
fatal to liriiisn connection is once
more ruined; if British connection
can only he maintained hy the
methods of Uncle Thomas and his
ciew, tho sooner it perishes the
bettor for ua all. From its peculiar
geographical formation, as well as
Irom being uot of one people, but of
two differing iu speech, religion,
Bocial customs, instincts, and even
in Iheir general civilization, the
Dominion is or.Miuieally weak, aud
if wo are to let the forceB of corruption have full swing anil submit our-
selvelvflB to their rule, the eud must
speedily conic, and uu ignominious
end it will he,"

The Kootonny Smelter Running  Successful ly.
The Kootonay (11. C.) Smelting
and Trading Syndicate  -.n.cltcr
here was tho Bceno   of  consider,
able stir this week.   On Monday
tires were started in the furnace,
and fo1'two ilttjB   following   tho
firing continued.   Then tho  fur.
mice was closod below,   ii   being
heated   and   tons   of   bur   lead
thrown into it, und soon after tho
ore   charcoal,   coke,   limestone,
sand   etc,   wero  shovelled into
tho caldron of  tire.   Since  that
time this shovelling   process bus
been  continued  day aud  night.
The nir from tho bellows  helped
llio fierce tiro, and  on   Thursday
tho  first    bullion   was   drawn
from   iho    big   cucible.      The
"slag" also flowed freely, and Dr.
Campbell was covered with smiles
soul and perspiration,   when   he
told  a  Staii repreiitaiive with
evident  Bulisfaclion  thai  thero
was ihe Iirst slug drawn   irom a
smelter in  Uritish   Columbia, au
evidence that all was going well.
An waB stated in the Staii last
week the ore being treated carries
u high percentage ot zinc, 15 per
cent., ...ore tl.au  can   bo safely
counti'd ou to run.   Friday  wus
looked upon as tho critical time,
whet, it tho ores were not going
to run freely, they would "freeze"
and the fires would be blown out.
The ore continued to ruu, however, ai'd at tbe lime ot  writing '
