Ever since the Grant-Omaha Smelting Co., of Omaha, Neb., .secured
railway rates on Slocan ore to their
works, they have been seeking to devise means to secure an increased
share of the Canadian product. The
company has decided at length to
erect extensive sampling works in
close proximity to the principal
mines of the camp. As at present
considered the works would have a
capacity of several hundred tons per
dav, the machinery beina* not only
powerful, but also of the most modern
design. W. F. Teetzel, of Nelson,
has offered the company a free site on
i «.
his portion of the townsite of New
Denver for the works, but they incline more towards a location at
Three Forks, at the terminus of the

T. L. Haig, the collector of vote'?
for the north riding, arrived in from-
Reve]stoke, on Monday. Up to a late
hour Tuesday night he with Provincial Officer Fauquier, was busilyen-
g&ged revising the voter's list for the
town. The result showed a total of
(:>9 names for Nakusp, but, with tlie
many applications to be dealt with;
the number can easily be increased
to 100. In addition to the Nakusp
list, those for Fire Valley and Lar-
dean, were also adjusted. Applications for the present list close on May
2, and as Mr. Fauquier is getting in
a supply of the new forms, in rending,
voters should lo^o no time in getting
their names in. :

The concentrator erected at the
Number One mine at Ainsworth diiiv
ing the winter is well calculated to
perform the work demanded of it,, as
well as enhancing the pecuniary im
portance of the camp.
The establishment of these works
must necessarily result in the employment of many men, while the effect of having direct returns from the
ore without the tedious wait upon the
smelting companies will benefit all

the rare blessing of speedy  service
all winter, he came to the conclusion
that there was ground for complaint.
Mr. Fletcher wras of the opinion thai |
West'Kootenay contained the worst
lot of kickers in the province; at all ]
events, they had caused more trouble
in,the past season than the ■remainder
of Britinh Columbia put together.    It
has not yet been decided  who will

choice lying between  T. Abriel and
F. Bourne, with odds in favor of the

it is difficult to raise thorn.    The day
of high prices for labor and everything else is gone in the silvery west,
and there is no, object for the young
men of the east to take Horace Gree-

bays will save  their railroad fares,

The A. P. A. has a branch in Spokane. It is a society formed for the
purpose of favoring everything Pro
testant, and opposed to everything
Roman Catholic. We do not like to
see.these societies springing up. "We
believe a man should think as he
likes, but in business and social affairs; we should all bo brother?. If
we h'acl fewer .fanatics and less narrow-minded'' religious agitation their

We 'will return .to Canada as soon

out at any time and we would be

IMPORTANT MEASURES
Introduced Towards the Close of the
Legislature.
Appended is a brief outline of several important pieces of legislation
introduced into the Local Parliament
shortly before it prorogued:
The Railway Assessment bill, made
necessary by; the recent Supreme
Court decision in the C. P.R. assessment appeal, provides that the lands
in use, the stations and buildings of
railway companies, their personal
property and rolling stock shall be
assessed as a whole in the district in
which the terminus or head office is
situated at the sum of $3,000 per mile
of track, including; sidings, of the
company with in the province and
without the limits of any incorporated
municipality. The, vacant lands are
to be assessed and taxed as wild
lands
The bill in aid^f the Kaslo:&' Slocan Railway amends the act of 1892
by authorizing that the land grant
authorized for the broad eruage road
may be given to the narrow guage
road adopted in substitution-this ses-
sion;;and also that where owing to
the nature of the country or the overlapping of the sections it shall be
found impracticable to locate the
lands, as provided, the Lieutenant-
Governor-in-Council may grant.other-
lands-in'the. district of West Kootenay
to be selected in blocks not less than
two miles square.
The amendment to the Railway
Aid act is in the interest of tho Nicola
Valley and* Chilliwack schemes, and
authorizes a guarantee of both the
principal and the interest; on their
bonds to an amount not exceeding
one half the amount of the contract
for construction awarded after approved tenders have been publicly
called for, but the guarantee not in
any case to exceed $7,000 per mile.
The companies in return are to pay
into the Provincial Government one
half of th e Dom in ion subsid y, and a
percentage of the gross earnings, and
the other half of the subsidy and a
similar percentage are to be invested
to form a sinking fund for the. payment of the principal of the bonds.
The bill to amend the Coal Mines
Regulations Act gives the inspector
of mines authority to have excluded
any person who, by reason of want
of understanding*, or owing to mental
or. physical incapacity-or. incompetency for.tlie performance of the particular task or duty upon which he is
engaged, is a source of danger to his
co-laborers or to others who may be
in the mines, and whose presence and
employment threaten or tend to the
bodily injury of any person.
The Provincial Royal Jubilee Hospital act amending bill provides that
the board of directors shall consist of
15 member?, three to be aprointed by
Lieut-Governor-in-council. five
fc: ;'e corporation of Victoria,   three
by the French Benevolent Association
and four to be elected by ballot by
the members of the Hospital, as defined in the act. It is provided that
all clergymen and ministers of every
denominatio) i shall hav e free admittance to the patients in the hospital,
but in no case shall any clergyman or
minister of any religion of any denomination, or any member of the
Victoria corporation, or any medical
practitioner, be made a director.
The act is not to come into force until
proclamation after the by-law for the
grant of 135,000 in aid of the hospital
has been finally passed. c
The charges against Government
Agent Fitzstubbs, the subject of a return laid before the House, arose out
of his refusal to certify to the correct-
ness of a number of accounts for labor
said to have been performed in building a trail.    The men presenting the
accounts were   employed  by John
Sanderson, who makes the charges.
Mr. Fitzstubbs says that he authorized
Mr. Sanderson to have the work done
but that becoming suspicious when he
saw the pay roll presented,    he inspected the work in company with an
experienced   engineer,    and   they
valued the work at $269, and he certified for only that amount,  though
several hundred dollars more were
charged. , He characterized the accounts sent in as attempts at fraud
upon the Government.    This report
was made   upon October 20,   1893.
On Feb.   22,   1894, Mr,   Sanderson
I wrote to the Chief Commissioner of
Lands and Works making the charge
that Mr. Fitzstubbs added to the pay
roll for August,   1892, the name of
William Smith, when no such man
had been employed,   and issued a
cheque for $70, payable to this name.
The letter has been forwarded to Mr.
Fitzstubbs for explanation.

We are sorry that at the present
advanced stage of the world's history
1 many people are' still imbued with
the idea that none but those who believe as they do in religious matters
should be recognized, in business or
social affairs.
The A. P. A. is a .society that is
growing in power in the United
States. Its members are required to
swear that they will have nothing to
do with people who profess the Roman Catholic faith, unless it is absolutely impossible to get along without their services in .business or
otherwise. ■'"■ '        ,
We do not defend the Roman Catholic church, or any other religious
denomination, but we do thing that
it is high time that such societies
were crashed out, and the bitter animosity that existed in former days
between the two great churches;
buried forever.
In America, let there be no hatred
amongst neighbors, because they
both do not read the same prayer
book. Let there be nothing but
brotherly love and a disposition.to
help everyone irrespective of their
creed. Religion is tor the benefit of
mankind, not for the breeding of ba
