Attempted Gaol Delivery.
An attempt at gaol delivery was
nipped in the bud last Thursday
night. A number of friends of Albert
Littlejohn, who is confined in the pen
awaiting his trial before a higher
Court on,a charge of robbery, had
plotted to. pry open the door and release the prisoner. Officer Fauquier,
getting wind of the affair, took his
blankets and lodged in the gaol for
the night, effectually warding off the
threatened clanger." Tlie parties interested were warned thatan attempt
such as that planned would hot- be
treated as a joke.
Th e pi a cer mine 7s on Ca -i boo crc e k

stroyed almost all the improvements,

wrecked everything. ; Last week it

THURSDAY,  O0TY 718,   1894.
The driver   bank   at    Revelstoke
should be repaired as soon as possible
„ or the,. editor of the local paper wilj
develop into a    monomaniac on the
September's expenditures by , the
American Government exceeded the
-receipts by * J7,701,790, . making a
total deficit for the quarter of 119,079,-
710. Thus Canada is not alone in
her misfortunes, notwithstanding the
coiitensions of the followers of Hon.:
Wilfred Laurier.
Max Lebaudy, the young Parisian
millionaire whose extra yagahces
brought him into, the courts, a few
months ago, when his mother tried
to have his reckless expenditures restrained by legal measures, has developed a new craze. He has organized an amateur bull-lighting ring,
according to a Paris letter in the Argonaut of October 15th, and has been
giving his friends some very lively
sport.    .   • -a   d    .'   ' ' ■' -;
Brad street's commercial report for
last week states that the accentuation
of favorable features is revealed in
telegraphic reports.. While advices
as to the most marked improvement
come from the west and south, there
are some encouraging features also
reported from the east, and the net
.result of the week's business has fuiv
ther progressed in the direction of
enlarged distribution. The bank
clearances in the same time increased
three per cent..
New Denver requires a wagon road
to Three Forks in order, to compete
for the trade of the Slocan.: We
would advise those interested not to
wait for the Government to build it,
but to do something themselves. If
some.of its citizens would work more
and howl less, they might have a
town that would be a credit to the
country. Take a pointer from the
example of the people in Kaslo. two
years ago, stop listening to the loud
pipings of socialistic wind-producers,
and you will find that New Denver
will always be a heavy mark on the
map of West Kootenay.
The Slocan is very much in need
of a bank, and if we were not otherwise eng'aged we would start one.
We have recently noticed that the
two worthy managers of Nelson's
banks have paid numerous visits to
the Slocan, and thev are evidently
watching the ground with anxious
eyes. We would suggest that one of
them quit Nelson, thus dividing the
business, and accommodating the pub
lie. Nelson has no more use for two
banks than we have for a cemetery.
One might pay there, and we feel
certain that the other one ;would
be a brilliant successpn: the,Slocan.
Don't hesitate, .respecfed"'==nya;rik folks,
but, for Mammon's sake !*■' Give us a
bank before all .the mineral is dug
out and the community .bankrupted
paying freight on money parcels.
Hon. Forbes Vernon, Commissioner
of I^aiidS; and Works, bas retired from
public life>Awith the given purpose, of
personally attending; to his increasing
business interests. An extra of the
Gazette, published on Friday, announced the' appointment of G.B.
Martin, M. P. F. for North Yale, to-the'
vacant position. To many it will be
a painful surprise to see Mr. Vernon
out of public affairs, as he Imc been a
faithful and conscientious servant of
the people, and no man knew the intricacies of an arduous posu^ion better
than he. Mr. Martin is a good man;
a more capable,, im fact, it Afould be
difficult to find as a successor to the
late Cpntniissioner. For 12 years lie
has occupied a seat in the House, and
he has ability and foresight to acid
to his experience. _WTe congratulate
Hon. Mr. Martin on his elevation.

Hugh Madden and Patrick Shea
are doing the assessment work on tlie
Iron Crown, a quartz claim they are
interested in on Mineral creek.       ■
Hugh McKay has returned   from
Cariboo creek.    He brought a stpqk
of mirth with him,   which he is dife-

There is nothing to prevent any
business man in West Kootenay from
using neatly printedstationery/ This
office is in the .business, andean suit
any ordinary' taste Or demand.
7 Indians in the vicinity of Nakusp
are in the habit of killing deer, and
allowing the carcases';to lie where-
they fall. Tliis n-ay be a goedthinjg
for buzzards, and other birds which
feed ujon dead ariiirals, tut it. is decidedly injurious to the game.of the
country, and. should be stopped by
tlie iron hand of the law.
The Alpha mine at Silverton will
suspend operations in a short time.
The owners .Iiave already shipped
enough ore to pay for the property;
and do not.care to sell any more until silver..advances, as they do not
feel like sacrificing a good thing
when they have it. The timber in
the mine will also have to be replaced before much more ore can be
taken out in safety.
Next Tuesday a number of • tlie
officials otthe C.P.R will visit Na.
:l_usp and go over the railway to the
end of "the track. Nothing definite
can be learned as t& whether the line
to Three. Forks will be operated this
winter or-not, but as the C.P.R. are
making contracts to haul ore from
the Slocan all winter it is easy to suppose;,tliat they intend to keep the cars
moying,without:cessation, v    ,        a
Matters are quiet at Trail creek,
the Josie mine not having resumed
operations, The wagon, road from
Nort'mdrt will be completed this
week, and the ore in future will be
drawn to Northport and shipped over
tlie; ra,ilroad7fi*om that town: It may
not pay Corbih to do this thisl winter;
but he is trying to hold the trade and
he no doubt will be rewarded when
his railroad is extended.to Rossland7
IN addition to the Restaurant the Proprietor has
a number of Rooms to rent to Travelers. The
Rooms are tastily furnished and the beds clean and
well aired..
Kootenay's Telegraph Line.
It cost the C.P.R. $14,000 to build
their telegraph line from Revelstoke
to Nelson, yia7 the ^Slocan, and this]
year the fidods and forest ;fires caused
them alossof at leastp-OOO. With;
the-exception of.■ Nelson, jscarcely; an.
office'bas paid its: -expenses since the:
line7 ;was?; .put; upv At Watson tho
highest receipts in any: one month
were $12,: while Nqw Dbnver paid
fo%tiie: first time last month. Three
Forks, Kaslo and Nakusp are still on
the losing side* -although with the
better service shortly to be. inaugurated, by the polinglf the entire line,
a change from loss to profit should
take place. Telegraphing is on the
increase throughout the proynice, %
sure.indication of increasing business
activity, and it is. reasonable .to.supT
pose tliat the -Kootenay country Will
participate in the general.revival of
tradp, and place its telegraph service
in a. position to pay dividends.
