There are hundreds of tons of freight
stored at that place for Kootenay
points, much of it having been there

Trains will run over the Nelson &
Fort Sheppard railway next week
from Nelson to Spokane. The company will be prepared to accept
freight and passengers on and after
December 10. The steamer Nelson
will connect with the road at Five
Mile Point to all lake points. The
navigation company have agreed to
keep up communication between
Kaslo and the point all winter, conveying passengers and froight to and
fro. An immense quantity of ore
wjllfte shipped out that way, a new

Two Chinamen arrived in North-

If they fail to prove their right in the
United States on their arrival in Spokane they will, be   given free transportation to the land of the Celestial.

guarded by  Deputy Collector Hugh
McCool; and^his  assistant Mir. Lyons,;

by any one who de -ire . to run the
risk as they have to show up somewhere between the boundary 'line
andNoithport to board theS. F. &

hundreds of Chinamen in British Columbia who would give almost anything to be safely lauded •' in some
large city on this 'side, where, they
could go in laundries among their
countrymen and thereby be safe froni
detection.—News. x '    ;'
Public School Entertainment.
Everyone that possibly can ^attend
should be in attendance at the concert to-night in the school housed
The programme to be given is an excellent one and includes among its
numbers some first class selections;-
Many of the performers are really
Al . artisttes , and those who Intend
to be present may rest assured that a
treat is in store, for ; them. The object of the entertainment—to help.de-
fray the expenses incurred in building the school—is a laudable one and
should be encouraged by all. After
the concert it is proposed to wind up
the affeir with a dance, which in
itself ought to be sufficient inducement to attract a crowded houte.
Come ouc, boys, and throw yn. your
shekels for the public weal.

A rumor, was prevalent here this

Windsor Castle of apoplexy. A great
sigh of relief was given vent to by
One and all when the welcome new*
arrived that our beloved Sovereign

land ofthe living. , The rumor, like
a multifciide of others of a like nature,
originated in the brain of some half-
cracked newsmonger in New York,

C. Greenfield and A. Harnfield,

ago, are well pleased with the showing on the property. They intend to

several men at work in the spring.

I will be pleased to answer all correspondence. Please direct letters to
Johannesberg. Lwould suggest that
a '.-remittance, be made in United
States stamps or per post office order
to coyer any demands. There are
many pamplets : published, correct
maps and weekly newspapers giving
all the latest on this wonderful country. Johannesberg is a city of 40,-
UOO with 50 dividend-pay ing mines
within a radius of ten miles, the product of which was 136,000 ounces in
pure gold for. the month of September.
Johannesberg is the metropolis, and
will probably have 100,000 popula-
tioa before the close <>f 1864. At Nyl-
stroom, in the WJaterberg district,
there is great excitement over the
recent gold, discoveraes. Localjsrpin
dicates are being formed and a great
number of prospectors are at work on
this new reef which has been struck
outside the Myn pocket or belt.

A great deal has been said in the
district papers ..against the inspector
for not looking after the population'of
West Kootenay in a more satisfactory
manner. This,, to a certain exfceiit, ia
perhaps, justifiable, but there i^ re'sl-
son to believe, to judge from the manner in which the mail is received'here
that the authorities at Nelson, who are
entrusted with the distribution to all
local points, are by no means exempt
from blame. Often it is that letters
addressed to Nakusp are put'in the
New Denver mail and vice versa.
This causes mnch needless delay and
travel, and is attributable to gross
carelessness solely. This is not las it
should be and a remedy must needs
be provided.
Nakusp is not alone in her complaint
in this matter, for Kaslo and way
ports have time and again uttered indignant protests against the treat,
ment accorded them by the Nelson
officials. Surely something could be
done to remove the bitter animus that
is now existing against the authorities in regard to the mail service, for
in these modern times thore are few
things more annoying than inefficient
means of communication.
weather having kept back the crops
at least six weeks beyond the usual
time of harvesting. During the latter part of October fair weather was
experienced, the crops ripening
quickly, permitting harvesting to
cemmeace. Last week; however,"ik
heavy snow storm passed over the
country, effectually putting an end to
the harvesting and threshing operations. Hundreds of acres of standing
grain have been rendered practically,
useless, and the reaping and threshing machinei have been* left in the
fields where the storm overtook them.
With heavy mortgages on their properties, little or no crops, and only 30

"stomates." They are most abradant on
the tipper surface of leaves; each is an
oval opening, guarded by a pair of lips
which open and close according to requirements. They vary from less than
1,000 to more than 20,000 to the square

Brandon may have a sensational
trial at the present assizes, as two
brother named Robins have been
committed for trial on [a very- serious
charge, the story of which is related
by the Hartney Star as follows:
Some days ago Robins borrowed a
yoke of oxen from a woman named
Thiry to go to Deleau. Instead the
oxen were driven to Hartney and
badly used. On this reaching Madame Thiry's ears she at once went
to Robin's house arid, after some high
words, took the oxen home. On the
following Saturday the two prisoners
w^ent to Thiry's bouse and, finding
the woman alone, pointed a loaded
gun at her and told her she had but
a few minutes to livei One of the
men was on horseback and endeavored to ride the  woman  down,   but
on the head kth a, hea^y bludgeon, j Til©      E_00t©liay        Lclke        S&W       Mill

Tuesday that they were captured by
the authorities. Unfortunately, the
man who struck the blow eseaped
that night after the trial had been
conducted. He asked permission
rrom the constable to go outside for
some purpose or other and failed to
ratqm 7 Madame. Thiry is undes*
medical treatment,, and her condition
is most precarious. 7 It Is very doubtful whether she can recover. The
Robins bear a very shady reputation
the one who dealt the foul blow being
a deserter from the Belgian army
arid under sentence of death.
