: Never before have the waters of
the lake and tributary streams been
known to rise so rapidly as during
the past week, the daily record being
about two feet.    This state of affairs
is due to the extraordinary hot weather, which,, having a decided effect
upon the snow in the mountains, has
resulted in  the  thousand   and one
streams overflowing their banks, carrying destruction everywhere.
The chief sufferers in r.town have
been P. Genelle & Co. and the I.C.&
D.Co.    The former company has had
to tear down  the sawmill and machinery and remove them' farther in
shore and elevate them several feet.
This has caused considerable loss to
the company,  which is pressed at
present getting out supplies for the
railway.    As for the latter'concern,
their expense bill will be largely increased, chiefly on account of the'new
wharf.    The  waters rose/so rapidly
that  the    crib work , could  not   be
ed at present by the railway people j
from the boats.    Rolling stock destined for the N.& S.R. cannot be loaded
because of the high water.    The first
train from the east in four days ar-
rived in Revelstoke on Saturday, the
track having been blocked by snow-1
slides; and at Sicamous, on the west,
the rails are submerged.
Slocan lake, as well as the Arrow
lakes, is full of drift wood, making
navigation dangerous. The new
Government bridge across Carpenter
canyon, close to New Denver, has
been swept away by the creek, the
three forks of which were never be-
fore seen so high.
Kootenay lake is keeping up with
the pace set by the others. Bonner's
Ferry is inundated, the only means
of travelling the' streets being   by

river the ranches have been flooded was ideutical with the one lie
and the crops destroyed, but so far no T110 oase .was dismissed.
On the evening of the 21th of May '
John Cadden, locomotive wiper, had
a §10 bill stolen from his clothes as he
lay asleep,  while Norman Thomas,
his bed-fellow,   lost   $7.50.     Curley
Robinson,  who   occupied   a  second,
bed in  the same room, was at once
, suspected of the crime, and .Saturday
night received a summons to appear
in court on Monday, before Justices
of  the  Peace   Jordan and   Mohun.
Numerous witnesses were examined
at the trial, which lasted the greater '
part of the day.    The accusation devolved principally upon the fact of
an Imperial bank noie, with a blue
pencil mark on it,   having   passed
through various hands, originating,
it   was  alleged, with  the   accused.

huge waves.

The subjoined letter will explain
itself: —
Ottawa, 14th May, 1894.
My Dear Mr. Mara, —
I have much pleasure in informing
you that, in accordance with the recommendation contained in your letter of the 9th inst., I have instructed
Mr. Fletcher by telegraph to ask for
tenders for a semi- weekly service between Nakusp and New Denver.
Yours faithfully,
Adolphe P. Caron,
I J. A> Mara, Esq., M.P.,
Returning   from a trip  to   Trail
Creek and Robson, on Sunday's boat,
was J. M. Kellie, M.P.P.    Asked as'
to the result of his visit, Mr. Kellie",
said that he'' had no doubt but that -
he would be re-elected at the forthcoming   elections.    "Everywhere   he'* '
had been received with words of ,wel- - -'
come and * encouragement, both   for   ,
himself and the Government.   Miners'
and ranchers alike were, well satisfied witti'"the attention 'Government1 a'"
was bestowing upon them,' and''all"""'*
talk of opposition was of none effect.
At Trail creek Mr. Kellie stated that
considerable work was being done at
the various mines, and a personal inspection of the same had convinced *
him that it would be a famous camp.
The great drawback to the more general development of the country was
the lack of wagon roads, but he hoped to assist the miners by Government
aid.    At the Le Roi, O.K., and other
claims, development work was going
ahead, with the end in view of anak-
ing    regular    shipments   later   on.
American capital was being attracted
by the rich returns already made,
but few were disposed to sell.   Mr.
Kellie has gone into the   Lardeau
district, to look after a wagon road to
be built there,    lie expressed a per
il i
House of Commons,
Ottawa.
Mr. Mara could farther his good
work by calling the Postmaster General's attention to the present manner
in which American mail, via Spokane, for this section is handled, complaints of which arc loud and frequent.    At the same time Mr. Mara's      i no m,(u *.,

A New Industry Opened up in This
province.

The paper
W. Hewartson, of Alberni, in ..'the.
Winnipeg:'Western World writes:
At Alberni are the mills of the British Columbia Paper Company, Ltd.
They are situated on the Somass, the
largest river on Vancouver Island, at
the head of navigation, in a lovely
valley.    The mills are very extensive, covering a large area of ground.
The principal buildings are about 300
feet long, with about 50 feet in width,
partly two stories high, and consist of
lumber and planing mills, pulp and
paper mills, .with paper bag machinery.    The motive power is obtained
from the Somass, a substantial dam
having been built across it above the
rapids, and a massive flume, erected
through a rock cutting 800 feet long
by 10 feet wide and five feet deep.
Three large,, turbine water   wheels
give the motive power now required.
The lumber   mill   consists of   log
frame, with 60-inch circular, cutting
up to 40 feet in, length, four saw gang
edger,   planing and moulding  machinery to take in  up to 18 by six
inches,  self-acting shingle machine
and jointing machine.    It is the in
tehtion of the  company
and door machinery as
requirements warrant it.
and pulp mill machinery is, of the
most improved description for working up the refuse of the sawmill, and
also any other paper-making material, consisting of rag and rope cutting
machine,   wood barking,   chipping,
crushing, and pulping, machines, two
large   globular  boilers,   two  roller
gangs with granite runners, five rag
beaters,   four Driver paper making
machines with five  cylinders,: large
reel   paper   cutting   machine,"   bag
making  and   printing   machinery,
capable of turning out 10,000 perfected bags an hour.
There is also an engineer and
blacksmith's shop, fitted with large
lathe, saw bench, etc, and a massive
steam boiler for boiling and drying.
The works will be lighted through
out b y electricity. Chemical works
for the production of chlorine and
caustic by electricity are also on the
programme, as well as works for the
production.of wood. naptha, benzine,
turpentine and resin. A grist and
flour mill will be added as the requirements of the district advance.
The company owns a, tugboat and, two
scows, and arc building two wharves
and a tram way.
They have laid out about 50 acres
of their property into a townsite, and
offer exceptional facilities for building thereon. Water and electric
light will also be supplied. The great
natural advantages of Alberni induced the company to build there rather than at Victoria.. Here they
have   pure   water,   splendid  water
power, the best port on the west coasr,
and the nearest to the Orient, where
vessels of any draught can ■come in
straight from the Pacific ocean, to
the centre of Vancouver Island and
within two miles in a straight line of
the mills. This port will naturally
be the terminus of any transcontinental railway that may come on the
Island, as the Austral iari, China and
Indian vessels can come up at any
stage of the tide, and passengers can
be sent on their way east 24 hours
earlier than at present by way of
Vancouver, and this not taking into
account the fogs that often delay
them in the Straits of Fuca and the
Gulf of Georgia^    .
Pyritic Smelting.
H. Lang, the- well-known mining
and metallurgical authority and general agent of the Selby Smelting Co.,
of San Francisco, was in Spokane a
few days ago.    His purpose is to extend his business in British Columbia
but   more   particularly   the  Slocan
country.    He is paying , especial attention to pyritic smelting at present,
and has patented several of his own
inventions in this kind of ore reduction.    Mr.' Lang says this system has
been greatly extended in the last two
or three years, and is  particularly
applicable to the treatment of base
and difficult ores of gold', silver and
copper.    It has met with great sue- ■
cess in Colorado,   under   the  form
known as the Austin .system, and in
Idaho under modifications introduced
by Mr. Lang.    He  is consulting engineer for half a dozen big companies
in  the   United   States and Mexico,
who have built or contemplate building pyritic smelters.    The owners Of
the Le Roi mine on Trail creek contemplate putting, in a smelter of this
kind.

The Prospector man is evidently
troubled with a bad liver, to judge
from his weekly carpings about the
N.& S.R., which he endeavors to believe will not be finished this summer. His case is an isolated one and
there need be no fear of contagion.
They expect a lively summer at
Silverton by reason of the extensive
work to be done at the neighboring
mines. Once the N.&S.R. is completed ore will be shipped from the
Wakefield, Silverton, Alpha and the
Reid & Robertson group. Trails are
being run up to the mines and other
necessary arrangements made. The
force of men employed will be increased.

Platform1 Adopted in Convention.
JTEREASthcmen who inbuilt thev Dominion
of Canada were not of one nativity, and if a
Third. Tlie interests loi the province were not
safeguarded in tho agreement between the Government and tlie Nakusp and Slocan Raihvay Company, and tlie policy of the Government in pledging the credit of the province, in order tliat speculative companies may profit thereby, is to be condemned. . -
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 roa'ds 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 tlie use of which the public are
required to pay.    .
Fifth. The speedy adjustment of the differences
between the province and the Dominion, to the eitfl
that the land in the railway belt along the Canadian Paciiic 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 L-.mds and Works; also amending
it so as to permit the outright purchase ef small
tracts in all unsurveyed mountainous districts.
Sixth. The 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 saleable asset.
Seventh. The development of the mining industry should not be hammered by legislation that
makes 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 repeal of sections S arid 45a of tlie Mineral Act and a revision of
the, sectionsrelating to mining partneMrips.
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 ]pi
terms of tlie county court at short intervals; extending the 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 -tlie collection of small debts in courts composed
of justices ofthe peace. •
Eleventh. The extortion to which laborers oil
, railway construction and other works are compeli-
'ed to submit, through the issuance of timecheeks,
is alike discreditable to the men who profit by such
practices and to'.the Government thai makes no effort to render such practices impossible. The issuance of noii-negotiable time checks should be made
a punishable offence, and the issuance of negotiable time checks should only be allowable under a
law that would safeguard., tlie rights ofthe party to
whom tiiAy are issued. •    '
Twelfth.   Contraetorsj and  sub-contractors. on .
railway .4 should have: a means .of getting speedy
redress from unjust classification anil unfair measurement oi work by the appointment of an official
arbitrator who >• hall-lie a practical engineer.
Thirteenth.   The-Govcrn'mont k to be condemn-
W 	
healthy patriotic-sentiment is to prevail, and only  -ed tor the passage of a, redistribution act that is not
bv the"growth of such a sentiment can Canada
take a place among the English-speakhig nations,
the responsibilities of government -must be entrusted to men of known capacity, and j;ot 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 tq.official positions
uniform in its provisions,' and by which representation   is   neither ' based' on   -population,
strength nor contributed revenue.

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 tend to lessen cou.fi.
deuce in-the integrity of the Legislative Assenibi v,
and through it ah insidious poison is disseminated
that in time will find its way through the whole

private legislation altogether.

themselves with the bald assertion
that the proceedings before the learned judges were a farce. True, they
were indeed. Never before did tra-
ducers and calumniators present such
a sorry spectacle as did the party

When here last week Mr. Brown
expressed his determination to meet
Mr. Kellie on the public platform, but
was fearful of disappointment. He
need not have been, knowing full
well at the time tliat Mr. Kellie had
nothing to conceal and would be willing to meet him, And this the latter

disastrous defeat for the so-called and
much-perturbed Opposition. Unhappy Brown.
Ontario, like our own fair province,
is in tlie 'throes.of'. a political contest,
which in excitement has had no
equal, and it waxes warmer each
day. Hon. W. R. Meredith, leader
ofthe Conservative party, was tendered a magnificent demonstration
bv the citizens of London, at the
opening of the campaign in that city
last week. Sir Oliver Mowar/s chances of a return to power are very
slim. Polling takes place on June
26th.
Failing in their efforts-to incriminate the Government, before the Eoyal
Commission, on the Nakusp & Slocan
Railway, the Oppositionists are seek-
Mattcrs politically have been quiet
in the riding during tho week, though
Messrs. Brown and Kellie have been
pushing their canvass throughout the
length and breadth of tne land with
great diligence. The latter has returned from the lower, end of the district, well satisfied with the outlook
and with unbounded confidence in
his ability to carry the constituency.
Everywhere his advances were cordially received by the electorate, who
expressed their approval .of his career
in Parliament and of the Government
for their progressive administration.
Mr. Brown's reception, on the other
hand, must be as disappointing to. him
as his adversary's was encouraging.

*r;i w*-. SJ i5Mi •tMkT a* •' A BIG SUCCESS.
Nakusp Honors the Queen's Birth"
day in Grand Style.
Perfect weather favored the celebration of Her Majesty's 75th birth
day here last Thursday, and the result was that unqualified success
crowned the efforts of the committees
in charge. A great many people
came into town from various quarters
serving* to re-infurce the local contingent of holiday seekers. -The Lytfon
arrived in from Revelstoke at noon,
but her passenger list was small, not
•being more than 50. However,
everyone enjoyed themselves to their
heart's consent, no mishap occurring
to mar the pleasure of the day in any
way whatsoever. The various business houses were gaily decorated
with evergreens and bunting, presenting an attractive, appearance,
while the amount of coin handled at
the hotels was eminently satisfactory
to the proprietors.
Promptly at 9:30 the baseball game
was called on, the teams being chosen
from among local to&sers. Seven innings only were played, but the
match proved the most; interesting of
the day's proceedings, the score from
start to finish being close and exciting. Following was the personnel of
the teams: No. 1—Millard, captain;
Cadden, Milne, "Gordon, Richardson,
Murray, Malinson, Williams and
Matheson. No. 2—Hoag, captain;
Nevins, Fan*, Smith, Corbin, Saunders, Laundreau, Hartle and Rhein-
hart. Umpire, W. Russell. Score,
17 to 16 in favor of No. 1.
Next in order, came the aquatic
spoits, resulting "thus: . One mile,
handicap, for skiffs, 1st, F. Bourne.
Half mile, heavy boats, 1st, J. Caque;
2nd, C. Orvil; 3rd, W. Long. Half
mile, rafts, 1st, R. Matheson.
. The horse races were hotly contested, several heats being necessary to
decide for first money. Five entries
were made, W. Saunders' "Paddy,''
W. J. Wilson's "Alberta,." W. Pyer's
"Iron Gray," W. C. Sampson's,''Gray
Dave" and "Bob." "Paddy" was
awarded first money, with "Gray
Dave" second. Two of the jockeys
were thrown from their horses, but
fortunately without harm.
But three entries were made in the
slow mule race, ending in a victory
for W. Saunders' ' 'Jack."
The results in the athletic sports
were disappointing in the extreme to
the home talent, Revelstoke visitors
carrying off a majority of the plums.
Half mile race, 1st, F. Fraser; 2nd, J.

The tug-of-war, between two local
teams, was very amusing, the win
ners generously treating their opponents to copious draughts of Allen's
prime lager beer, fresh from the
brewery.
The festivities were brought to a
grand finale by a ball in the evening,
the attendance being very large. At
midnight J. K. Devlin and others
favored tne audience with a few vocal selections. The visitors were unanimous in their declarations of thankfulness for tlie manner in which they
had been treated by the citizens.
The winding up rrieeting of the
committees was held on Saturday
night, when tiie treasurer presented
a clean sheet, all liabilities having
been wiped < >n t Votes of thn nks were
passed to the President, and Secretary;
the judges, S. Hoag, Nakusp; W. M.
Brown, Revelstoke; and the starter,
R. Hewett—all for efficient services
during the celebration.

RICH IN MINERAL.
Boundary Creek Properties Attracting Capital,
The Columbia Consolidated Placer
Mining Company, composed largely
of citizens of Spokane, and of which
General A. P. Curry is president, has
conferred to Parker & Leavenworth
of Seattle, the agents of an Eastern
syndicate,    its    $125,000    treasury
stock. In consideration of this Parker
& Leavenworth-have -contracted to
construct a canal, ; starting at the
forks of Cedar creek, 'three miles
southeast of Boundary, and to extend
far enough southwest of there to supply water sufficient to enable the Columbia Co. to thoroughly placer mine
their 800 acres of land, which hugs
the Pend d'Oreille and Columbia
rivers. It is estimated by the company's engineer that the canal will
cost $35,000 in excavating, piping,
machinery, etc. The canal will also
supply water for all purposes to Boundary.
- There is quite an area of gold-bearing ground in the vicinity of Boundary for those desirous of engaging in
placer mining, and there is no doubt
but that rich returns would be forthcoming.
The Civil Service Gold Mining
Company, organized and incorporated
under the laws of the State of Washington, with a capital stock of $100, -
000,. iancf vfhicTi' is;'composed of capitalists of Washington, Montana, South
Dakota, Kansas and Kentucky, has
opened its main office at Boundarv.
The company is possessed of some of
the very choicest gold quartz and
placer mining claims in the Boundary
district. Of tlief former the company
controls the Margaret, Sarah C, Gold-
eii Treasury,' Rosebud; Willie M and
Mikado, arid of the latter the Hattie,
Madre d'Oro and Gold Rock: The
former have been sufficiently tested
to satisfy the company that systematic
work will prove these mines of great
results; and of' the latter the' advent
of the water supply referred to makes
returns at once practicable.
' "It is regarded by all who have visited and investigated the gold, silver
and lead bearing lodes' of -the Cedar
creek district that without doubt it is
the coming ore producer of that particular section.

points until further notice: Will leave
New Denver every day, Sundays excepted, for Silverton at 7 a.m.; and
will leave New Denver for Wilson

came up on Sunday's boat from Nel
son. He had been retained by the
Nelson & Fori; Sheppard Railway Co.
to contest, in the recent County Court
sittings, the mechanic's lien of $350,-
000 placed on that property by Pete
Larson. Mr. Hunter scored a brilliant victory for his clients.
Messrs. Brown and Haskins, of
Revelstoke, politicians of no mean
ability, were in town on the 24th.
The former rendered efficient service
during the day as judge of the sports
and also in foundling the juveniles, a
task of peculiar charms for candidates
for political honors. Mr. Haskins enjoyed himself to his heart's content in
gliding" over the placid waters of the
bay in nis shell.
Messrs McNaught, Milligan and
McKenzie, of Seattle, holders of the
bond of $75,0C0 on the Alpha group of
mines near Silverton, passed through'
town from Spokane on Thursday.
The party returned from an inspection of the mines on Tuesday and left
for Nelson, to pay over the second
instalment of the bond money, which
fell due last month. The payment
amounts to $20,000.
A ruling of great interest to mining
men was given by Judge Spinks at
Nelson last week, in the case of Geo.
Hughes vs. Bronson & Serson. This
was an action for damages brought
by the former because the latter had
cut timber off a mineral claim of
Hughes'for theN.&S.R. Judgment
was given for the defendants, the
Court holding that a free miner has
not the exclusive right to timber on
his mineral claim.
T. Ardell, Mayor of Silverton, was
a visitor in town this week on business. Though that town is somewhat
quiet at present, the resumption of
work on the neighboring mines will
put new life in it. Several parties of
men are running out trails to the
claims, preparatory to getting in and
out supplies and ore. Mine-owners
are awaiting the completion of the
N.&S.R. to Wilson creek, whence
the ore will be brought up from Sil
verton.
