sent a man to do the assessment work

recorded the workas being dene, as
he was to receive for his pay a Spokane lot.    During the -summer,   Good-
enough, Kent,   Thompson,   Whittier

THURSDAY,  NOV.   8,   1894. A
The Provincial Legislature convenes at Victoria oh Monday.
Ex-Premier Mercier of Quebec died
on the 30th ullimo, after a lingering
illness, aged 54 years Deceased was
one of the most noted political characters in the Dominion.
The editor of the Standard; apaper
published in Colville, Wash., advertises to take pork, butter, wood, and
fowl for subscriptions. He does not
say what kind of iowl he wants, but
we suppose it is fowl deeds, fowl play
or something of that kind,
Alexander III, Czar of all the
Eussias, passed in his checks at Li-
vidia on the 1st iust. The new monarch professes friendship' to England
and Germany, apparently, foi'getting
his late father's predilection for the
French. And still the world wag's
serenclv.
wonder that the man did not get his
paper. • We protest against such a
manner of running a postoffice, and
trust that the worthy postmaster will
see that it reflects upon himself as
well as being, injurious to us and other
publishers. 7 7 -•        ;
The Kaslo Claim   lias been in the
7 ■■.."'.        '   ' \
journalistic graveyard for more than
a year, but its dying issue and the
two preceding ones are still in demand, as high as |5 having been offered for a copy of the second last,
commonly known as the ' •'''Blue
sheet." The editor lias received letters from different parts of the world
enquiring for copies. Newspaper
men who were fortunate enough to
secure specimens of this now famous
sheet, treasure' them as something
rare, original and unique in the line
of journalism, especially in Canada.
Many men,0 well versed in -literary'
affairs, consider the last issue one of
the finest pieces of'. sarcasm ever produced in any country. And yet its
editor was once cursed by the people
of Kaslo. He was not considered a
prophet in his own town, and as we
have been acquainted with him for
vears we know that there was no
profit in the fcov»n for him.-
THE   STEAMER
The Comique at New Denver is a
dead issue ahd the paid up stock has
been returned. The business men
are busily engaged pushing a sleigh
road scheme, a much more laudable
scheme than attempting to float a
short dress enterprise for the purpose
of entertaining the honest but fiin-
lovimr miner.
7 The C.P. li. has abandoned the "pass
system to editors. The road has had
hard luck tliis year and King Billy
must cut down expenses. We have
'not heard whether he has raised the
fare" on pmrsons or not. The usual tie
passes are st.il 1 in order, btit may be
rescinded at any time, as the road is
growing- so economical that they cannot afford to have the ties worn out
by the big boots of the plebeians who
cannot ride on. Canada's great commercial highway owing to the low
price of silver and other causes.
We  hear   many complaints   from
people in different parts of the district
about not being able to get the papers
they subscribe for.    For instance, a
man in an interior town subscribed
for this paper a month  ago and lip to
last week he had not received a single copy.    This is annoying to him
and   a   detriment  to   our business.
Upon investigation   we   found  that
newspapers  Were   dumped   on   the
ccunter at this particular office and j
