No abatement of the flo6ds have
taken place during the week, but, on
the contrary, the waters have kept
piling up, increasing the destruction
already noted and accentuating the
distress of the sufferers, particularly
railroad corporations.   The extreme
high water mark of 1882 has long
since been passed, and ground that
for ages has been tenanted by forest
growth, is now given uptotheravr
ages of the ruthless destroyer.    For
tunate, indeed, is it that Nakusp is
possessed, of an  elevated townsite,
otherwise the miseries at present exr
perienced by sister towns would be
shared by this place.   As it is, those
only who are occupying; the water
front are the sufferers, but their loss

new warehouse on Bay street, just in
front the Nakusp House. -His workmen had almost completed removing
the goods from the other building on
the lake shore, when the waves
dashed it in fragments, as well as
the corral alongside. J. W.Haskins,
of Revelstoke, who had his racing
shell stored in the warehouse, will be
out of pocket considerably by the
storm, as his craft was shattered.
As for the I.C.& D.Co., their wharf
and lower sidings are buried out of

ABOUT BARYTES.
President Brent Talks About a New-
Industry.
Work changing the machinery in
the old smelting works near Tower
Bay slip, says the West Superior
Leader, for the use of the barytes
manufacture, will be completed within a week and shortly after the plant
will be in full operation. President
George Brent is devoting his personal
■ attention to the preliminary work,
and recently said:
"We expected to have had a boat
out for ore before this. We get this
ore on a small island, about 20 miles
from Port Arthur, which contains
probably four acres. The vein is 75
feet wide, and although we have not
ascertained its depth, Me know that
a parallel vein has been worked 1,-
300 feet below the levelof Lake Superior.
"Barytes is largely used in  the
manufacture of white lead in rubber
(particularly belting), in paper man
ufacturing, and even in tiie composition of candles.    There are several
hundred tons used, but being a great
adulterant, it is 'hard to determine-
how much is used.    It is sold at from
§12 to S25 per ton, according to' its
purity and is very heavy, an ordinary
flour barrel full weighing 700 pounds.
■ '.'We shall at the start employ ten
men,   which we hope  business will
warrant /us in increasing.    We have
a convenient plant here for our business, the only thing necessary to do
.outside of the building, is to extend
the switch track, now lying between
us and the • Grand   Republic  mill,
around the • north side of our plant,
which we shall  do.    Our improvements and new  machinery thus far
have cost about 85,000."
Exportation of Ore.
Traffic Manager Jennings, of the
Lake Shore Railroad, was  at Port
Townsend last  week for the purpose
of conferring with Collector Saunders
in reference to entering five carloads
of ore from British Columbia at Su-
mas, which is to be shipped to the.
smelter at Everett.    There being no
customs officer at Sumas, the ore cannot be, entered at that place unless
: a deputy collector shal 1 go there for
that purpose. ■' A  large   amount   bf
dutiable goes into th e United -States
by way of Sumas, and the citizens of
that place are  preparing a petition,
wMch lias been signed by the receivers of the Lake Shore road, asking
the secretary of the United States
■treasury to make Sumas a port of entry.    If this is not done the Lake
Shore will have to become-an United
States bonded road.
mining man, was in Victoria recently.
To a scribe he said:
Now, I suppose you are after me,
but I really have not anything of any
great interest to state. . The winter
has been unusually severe and the
snow deeper than for two years past.
There were some. three feet of it left
when I started down. The express
wagon goes only as far as Bonanza
Flat. The mail goes in on foot from
Beaver Pass.
The morning before I left Mr. Bow-
ron, gold commissioner, went in from
Quesnelle. Work on Slough creek is
going ahead in a very satisfactory
manner under the various contractors. Harry Wilcox is carrying on
the drains and is making good progress.
Most ofthe properties are in shape
to begin work so soon as the supply
of water proves sufficient, which will
be in about two weeks. From present indications the output should
make a good showing.
Mr. Lowe is. preparing to bore on
the Willow river, just below the
mouth of Mosquito creek. The contract has been let for a shaft house"
and other buildings. The machinery
for this work   is  now  at   Ashcroft
awaiting shipment. 	
Reports from Cottonwood, Lightning creek and oj-her streams, show
that an unusual number of leases
have been taken out, and a large'
amount of .work wrill result.
The Fry Company: on Quesnelle
are preparing to wash this spring.
The pipes for this work are now on the
way.   - -
One thing I should like to state, that
more men are travelling up the Cariboo road than for'years before, and I
met them at tlie rate of 10 per day.
Nowr, most of these appear to be'men
in search of work, just the thing
which at present is nos to be found in
that section. Quite enough men are
already in the. country to do all that
will be required this year, and . certainly those who are coming up now
will, in most cases, be sadly disappointed.
The Horse Fly country, so far as I
could hear, is all right. Mr. Hobson
is pushing ahead his work, both at
Horsefly and South - Fork. The Harper ground on South Fork is being
taken up by individual miners;.under
the plea,that- the company has failed
to comply with the terms of their
lease.' .     ,■':,.      a p. '■■''."»' ' "

■WHEREAS the men-; who upbuilt the Dominion
H" of Canada, svei'e not of one nativity, and if a
healthy-patriotic sentiment is to prevail, and only
by the growth of such a sentiment can Canada
take a place among tlie English-speaking nations,
tlie responsibilities of government must be entrusted to men of known capacity, and not to men
who, by accident of birth,, imagine themselves
rulers by Divine right.   Therefore be it resolved—
First.   That we hold as reprehensible the practice of appointing non-residents to official positions |
in interior districts,anrt we maintain that all offices, J
where practicable, should be filled by residents of
of the district wherein the official performs duty.
Second. Special and private legislation not only,
consumes too great a part of the time that should
be devoted to the consideration of public.measures,
but it leads to practices that tenet to lessen conn
dence in the integrity of the Legislative Assembly.
and through it an insidious poison is disseminated
that in time will find its way through the whole
system of the body politic: therefore, we favor the
enactment of general laws that will reduce to a
minimum special legislation and do away with
private legislation altogether. ;   ■  V- ■ ■
Third. The interests Tof. the province were not
safeguarded in the agreemenfrbetween the Govern-
ment-and the Nakusp and Slocan Railway Company, and,the policy of the Government in pledging the credit of the province, in order that speculative companies may profit thereby, is.to be con--
demned.
Fourth. - After making provision for the payment ef the running expenses of the Government,
expenditures should be confined solely to the building and betterment of wagon roads and other
works that are for the free use and benefit of the
public at large, leaving to private enterprise the
construction and operation of railways and other
undertakings for the use of which the public are
required to pay.
Fifth. The speedy adjustment of the differences
between the province and the-Dominion, to the end
.that the land in the railway belt along the Cana-:
dia'n Pacific Railway be thrown open to settlement
under'the land laws of the province; the amendment of the Land Act so that it will be an amicable contract between the province and the settler,
eliminating all discretionary powers of the Chief
Commissioner of Lands and Works; also amending
it so as-to permit the -outright purchase ef small
tracts in all unsurveyed mountainous districts.
Sixth; Tlie timber lands of the province should
be held in trust for the future use of its people, and
not handed over under long leases, to speculative
mill owners as a Siileable asset.
Seventh. The development of tlie mining industry should not be hampered by legislation that
Intakes the procurement of titles to surface rights
impossible; that levies unequal taxation on working
miners; and that makes it difficult to compel delinquent co-owners to pay their share of the assessment work; therefore we favor the rei>eal of sections S and 15a of the Mineral Act and a revision of
the sections relating to mining partnerships.
Eighth. The passage of an act whereby water
rights for any specific purpose may be obtained as
readily as such rights are now obtained for mining
purposes under the provision of the Mineral Act.
.   Ninth.   The establishment of a land registry for
"West Kootenay district.
Tenth. The holding in Kootenay district of
terms of the county court at short Intervals; extending tlie power to issue capias to registrars of
.county courts in districts where there are no resident judges; and the passage of an act that will allow the collection of- small debts in courts composed
of justices of the peace.   . -
Eleventh. The extortion to which laborers on
railway construction and other works are compelled to submit, through the issuance of timechceks,
is alike discreditable to the men who profit by such
practices and to the Government that makes no effort to render such practices impossible. The issuance of non-negotiable time checks-should be made
a"puriishable offence, aucl tlie issuance of negotiable time checks should only be allowable under a-
law that would safeguard tlie rights of the party to
whom they are issued.      V a  ~
. Twelfth.-- Contractors; and sub-contractors on
railways should have, a means of getting speedy"
redress from unjust classification and unfair measurement of work by the appointment of an official
arbitrator who shall be a practical engineer.
Thirteenth. The Government is to be condemned for the passage of a redistribution act that is not
uniform in its provisions, and by which representation is neither based on population, voting
strength nor contributed revenue. " x

THURSDAY,  JUNE 7, 1894.
UNLUCKY KASLCL
Not many months ago the eves of
the world were directed towards that
city by Kootenay lake known as
Kaslo, and many a man,turned his
steps in that direction in eager anticipation of bettering his condition in
life. Some were good people and
some were not, but most of them were
imbued with that spirit, of enterprise
and vim .so characteristic of western
men, elements that tend to make a
town bustle and grow with surprising
rapidity. They were led to believe
that the railroad would be built and
' that the business of the great Slocan
would be tran iacted in Kaslo. Buildings sprang up everywhere and for a
time-all went well. But thev reck-
oned without their host, and today
Kaslo is almost ready to climb the
golden stairs and push clouds with
the white-winged angels.
And why is this, so? Simply because a syndicate of men, versed in
fish canning and sawmill pursuits,
thought they would go into the railroad business and make a fortune at
one fell swoop. With a charter for a
road into the heart of one of the richest mineral belts ever known, and
the friendship of the Government in
refusing other charters in the same
direction, they allowed tlie opportunity to slip past and the Nakusp,&
' Slocan Railway to head them off. If,
a, year ago, instead of hesitating,
"bluffing, and trying to get the earth
for their charter they had gone to
work and laid even ten miles of iron,
the Nakusp & Slocan road would
never have been commenced, and
they would have, in all likelihood,
been able to dispose of their charter
to advantage; and today, instead of
the curses of a broken and discouraged community, they would have
the blessing and good will of every
citizen of Kaslo.
...', Evidently the Kaslo &, Slocan
Railway people did not know how to
manage the goose with the golden
eggs, and now the most sanguine believers in a railway for Kaslo are
forced to admit that all hope in that
undertaking has died out, and the
once thriving city is strictly in the
soup.    It is too bad  that the  owls
should in silence roost on the handsome railroad depot, or that the mountain sheep should, perchance, scratch
their backs against the once noisy
Comique, but we hope that the depot
will.long remain a monument to the
railroad that was to be, but never
was.
Sad are the memories that cluster
around the name of Kaslo, and as the
years crowd each other into the,20th
century, we, will always remember
the famous camp that died in its
lusty youth from railroad starvation
and home rule.
The floods, looked upon by many
as a great calamity, are, we think, a
blessing in disguise. Old Sol is doing
for the working classes what capital
would not, and in repairing the dan>
age after the wreck of. railroads is
completed, millions of dollars'will be
paid the laboring men, enabling them
to buy bread and keep out of Coxey's
army. 	
The United States, at the present
time is in a desperate condition. Rebellion is talked of in many places,
mob law prevails in others, and
Coxey's army still moves on to Washington. Matters are gradually approaching fever heat and unless a
breeze of prosperity strikes that
country before long, starvation will
compel many of its citizens to do
something desperate to obtain food or
die. _j	
By not deferring assessment work
on mining claims for a year, a great
benefit has been done the mining region of West Kootenay. Almost every
train from Spokane brings, one or
more men from some part of the Western States to do the necessary work
required by law on their claims in
this-country. The money expended
in this way is a source of revenue at
a critical time in our history; and it
is also an evidence of the faith that
many men have in the ultimate and
complete restoration of silver to its
proper value and position in the commercial intercourse among nations.
Mr. Kellie's action on this important
question in the Local House last ses
sion was commendable, as events
now indicate, and even his political
opponents cannot reproach him thereon. "'• .' a  ■■.

were afraid he would collect duty on

duty on jags. He would no doul >t

Accident List.
Last Wednesday ajiumbcr of men
were employed removing tlie timbers
and machinery of P. Genelle & Co.'s
sawmill out of reach,of the waters of
the bay. Among those thus employed was Louis Friesehold. He was
assisting, in lifting a heavy timber
when it slipped from.the grasp of the
men and fell with crushing effect on
Friesehold.   He was at   once freed
for hini, while Trout creek and Fire I from  his painful   position   and ' Dr.
Misfortunes seldom come singly,
and this was the experience of Peter
Genelle & Co. on Sunday. In addition to the devastation wrought in
tlieir lumber yard by the furious gale
of the afternoon, their tugboat, the
Na kusp, was almost totally destroyed
by fire in the night. She had been
to the logging camp down the lake
earlier in the day, arriving home
after the storm had subsided, in time
to boom the drifting lumber and
slabs. About three o'clock Monday
morning flames were observed issuing
from the hull ofthe boat as she lay
at her moorings. Assistance Was se
cured and the blaze 'extinguished,
but not before the interior was badly
scorched and a hole burned through
one side. The damage will amount
to |200 or 1300. The fire is supposed
to have originated from the ash box.
Happening when the .boat's services
were most required, the inconvenience and delay are extremely vexatious/ '• .
Brouse summoned; The left leg was
found to be broken about half way
between the knee .and ankle, both
bones being fractured. The patient
is resting easily.
The workman injured last Tuesday
by a rail falling on his foot was named Bennett. He had been in 'town
only a few days, having come in
from Puget Sound. On the previous
day while working he received a
blow on the side, but it was not tiU
Dr. Brouse was dressing his mangled
foot that he found out that he had a
fractured rib also to nurse.
W. Bragg, who had his ankle so
seriously sprained several weeks ago
in unloading cars, is slowly recovering the use of his foot, but it. is yet
very weak and sensitive. -
"Shorty" Peterson has practically
recovered the use of his foot, crushed
some time .since by a rail falling on
it when unloading a scow.    :
