The libel suit of Captain Robertson vs.
the Colonist will come up to-morrow before Sir Matthew Baillie Begbie. In
view of the opinions held by the Chief
Justice of the press and the profession
generally, we think the interests of jub-
tice would be Iietter served were Sir
Matthew to decline to preside al any
more trials lor libel. Thin is not our
opinion alone; it is the conviction of almost every citizen of Victoria. Sir Matthew has outlived IiIh usefulness on the
bench, and the two late libel cases clearly
demonstrated that there is a wide divergence between bis opinion and the opinion of eight respectable  jurymen  as to
what is right anil just ill such canes. If
Sir Matthew Bcghie will refuse to
retire u]>oii superannuation allowance
altogether, he ought at least to confine
himself to cuhpb where It will be impossible for personal prejudices to have any
effect in detormininethc issue. Certainly
it will be most improper for the Chief
Justice to hear any more eases against

INTERESTING    URTAU.S    or    THK    PARNELL
COMMISSION.
Loudon, May 30.—Mr. Arthur O'Connor, member of Parliament far East
Donegal, testified before the Parnell
Commission at to-day's sittings. Among
other statements he said that he heard
President Harrison, in a speech, delivered at Indianapolis, say that every
honest man and lover of liberty would
rather he in Tullamore jail than be entertained by tbe Viceroy of Ireland at
Dublin Castle. Mr. O'Canaor testified
that when he took the office «f Secretary
of the National League, he found many of
the organization's books ia such a fragmentary condition and so far in arrears
tbat it was impossible to da anything
with them. The witness did not know
whether the books of the League, which
the Government seised when Mr.
Forster was Chief Secretary for Ireland,
had been destroyed or not. The presiding Justice Hannen ordered the inquiry
to he made, and that it be ascertained
if the books were in existence, Mr.
O'Connor declared the suggestion that
that the tenants understood his advice to
them to boycott land grabbers as a hint
to murder them, and to commit other
outrages, was a base calumny. Mr. Jub-
tin McCarthy, member of Parliament
for Londonderry, was colled to the witness box. He testified that the Parnel-
litcs received the news of the Phunix
Park murders with horror and dismay.
Mr. Wm. O'Brien refuses to testify before the Committee on prison rules, because it fails to deal with the question of
political prisoners.

SALIBRURV   AND   B1-.VSIALL1SM.
Lord Salisbury to-day gave audience to
a deputation of merchants and bankers
who came to advocate the adoption of the bi-metallic standard. After listening to the reading of a carefully
prepared address in which the necessity
was strongly urged for remonetizing iil-
veronatixed ratio of interchange with
gold, Lord Salisbury said that in his
opinion this was not a question which
could Iw settled by Parliamentary decree
unless the commercial nations of the
world could reach some agreement. Any
action bv Parliament must count for
very little. The business interests of
each nation must decide whether or not
bi-mctallism be desirable. He hoped
that the coming congress in Paris, called
to consider the question, would be really
International in its character, with representatives from all the nations interested. If this proved to be the case, the
Congress would demonstrate to what
extent it was iiossible to secure International co-operation, and the final decision must depend entirely upon such
co-operation.

ARE "TRUSTS" JUSTIFlABLEt
With nearly each freBli batch of telegrams which reach us comes the mention
of some fresh trade combination.   The
English "Ring," and American "Trust,"
are almost synonymous terms, and are
equally harmful in thoir effects so far as
the general public is concerned.   Thinking men and women on either side of the
Atlantic,  doubtleBB  held a  reasonable
hope that the miserable collapse of the
now famous Copper Syndicate would act
as a check upon similar ventures—at any
rate for aitime.   Of course some of the
more knowing got out with a profit, as
some of the more knowing always will
get ont with a profit, no matter what nefarious scheme they may engage in.  For
the most part however they seem to
have suffered according to their deserts,
and one would naturally suppose that a
lesson so severe would have had a deterrent effect npon others wishing to cm-
bark in similar adventures.   So far from
such being the case, however, we now
hear of a Salt Trust, a Flour Trust, a
Beer Trust, and a Paper Trust.   Doubtless  some of these monopoly-schemes
had been hatched before tbe break-down
of the Comptoir d'Escompt, and before
many a monopoly-speculator was hopelessly crippled by the fall of that institution; yet judging by our latest advices,
it ia clear that the promoters of new Syndicates have not been deterred from gs-
ing on with  their business.    English
telegrams point out that the proposed
Paper Trust will very probably be met
by another combination; a combination
of newspaper proprietors.   As it is—says
an English Review—"some newspaper
owners have  established  mills for the
manufacture of part or all of the material they print upon; and, but for one
consideration, there seems to be no reason why groups of three or four great
newspaper owners should not combine
to make paper for their own use and that
of anybody else who chose to buy of
them.   The hostile consideration ia this:
most newspapers  disliko that the ups
downs of their sales should be known in
other and rival offices.   This objection is
quite intelligible, of course; but whether
it would stand against another—namely, the objection to   being fleeced   by
a Ring  of monopolists—is a question
that might not be decided in the paper-
maker's favour.   Besides, nothing but
the cheapness of paper keeps many a
journal  alive;   a consideration  which
touches both paper-makers and proprietors.   On the whole, then, the establishment ef a Paper Ring is not much to
be feared, we think; but the mere project, at a time when similar enterprises
of greed have come to such deadly grief,
is unpleasantly significant,"
At a recent meeting of the British Associated Chamber of Commerce, it was
decided to appoint a special Committee
"to consider the practicability of a legal
enactment for the prevention of an abuse
ot the right of free combination tending
to the artificial rise of prices for article*
of general use and consumption." The
Public will of course readily acknowledge
the excellence of the object; but we have
grave doubts as to the practicability of
framing a legal enactment which would
effect thiB purpose without embracing
and interfering with much else besides
trade Trusts. One of the leading members of the Association held that "the
system of Trusts engenders a gambling
spirit." Surely he has mistaken the
cause for effect. Is it not rather the
gambling spirit which gives birth to the
Trusts? We are not propared, nny more
than were the membors of the Associated
Chambers of Commerce to offer any solution of the difficulty. That is a work
which remains tor tbe statesman and the
lawyer. '-The summary, and under certain circumstances effectual resource, of
pulling out the bock teeth of the oppressive capitalist is hardly compatible either
with medern ideas or of abstract justice,"
OUR SCHOOL GAMES.
ing of a happy childhood. It is worth
while to make any proper sacrifico in
order to store the memory of children
with happy days. The family picnic,
the boating excursion, the children's
party, the occasional gift, are delights
that do not cease when the tired head
sinks on the pillow at night. Parents
would do well to remember that " school
games" should also receive their warmest
support. There is no better field than
the school playground for teaching boys
and girla the necessity of placing restraints upon temper, moderation of
language, and courtesy of demeanour, if
for no other reason—at least where boys
are concerned—than that the public
school and its playground, constitute the
nearest approach to the model republic
where all are equal—though memory tells
us that even this ideal equality depends
somewhat on size and strength.
CALDWELL & LEWIS,
-THE	
EDITORIAL  NOTES
The French people are much oxerciBed
at present over a, for them, new form of
Anglomania. Their school system,
which according to Mr, Mattiihw Arnold
is far In advance of that obtaining in the
British Islands, has this marked difference, that the Athletic games which
form so prominent a part in an English
schoolboy's "education," are simply an
unknown quantity to his Gallic confrere.
This grave defect, if defect it is allowed
to be, has caused much discussion of late,
and has induced a French millionaire to
offer a large sum of money in order to
put the machinery in motion for starting
games in Trench schools. It has been
■aid that "hitherto tbe surgical operation
has not been invented which would get
comprehension of even the simplest of
English school games into a French
head." Some of us may have seen a book
recently published, entitled La vie de
College en Angkterrt, in which when
cricket 1* dealt with, "le batman" and
"to bowlman" are made to perform trie ks
which as an English critic justly says,
"night make angels -weep, but would
certainly make captains swear." In the
Uttle work in question, the nmpire is
suppressed altogether, and gives place to
a mysterious garde, who renders equally
mysterious services to "le batman." It
is hardly possible to overstate the bleaB-
Tiir figures given below by Mr.
J. E. Purcell, Registrar of Joint Stock
Companies will be of great interest to
many of our readers, as some idea muy
be gathered from the rapid growth of
public companies in England. The return has just been made to an order of
the House of Lords. It appears that
since 1802 the number of companies
registered under the Companies Acts is
30,372, the nominal capital of which is
given at no less than £3,442,804,000. The
amount of capital actually subscribed
cannot be actually ascertained. Since
1885, however, an effort has been made,
by modifying the form of the annual return, to separate the shares that are subscribed from the shares issued to vendors
and others as fully paid. The capital
paid up, and considered aa paid, of the
companies registered under the Companies Acts, 1862 to 1886, and which were
believed to be still in existence in April,
1889, amounted to about £603,000,000.
The number of companies in respect of
which orders by the Court to wind up
compulsorily have been filedis 1084,and in
690 of these cases orders to dissolve were
subsequently filed. Tho number of companies in respect of which resolutions to wind up voluntarily
have been filed is 6584, and of these 4042
have been dissolved under section 143 of
the Companies Act of 1862. Of the remainder, 1306—which never completed
tbo process of winding up—have been
dissolved under the operation of the
Companies Act of 1880. In addition to
these 5625 companies which had not filed
resolutions to wind up have likewise been
dissolved under the Act of 1880.
A howl from the "outs," haa been
going the round of the press of the United
States. It appears that while President
Harrison has encouraged men in seeking
favors for their more fortunate brothers,
he has placed himself in an uncomfortable position by appointing his owu
brother to office. The opposition press
is assailing him on all sides on account
of such flagrant nepotism, and his own
organs do not seem too eager to defend
him. "Washington refused oflice to his
cousin," says one. "Jefferson declined
to give a placo to his nephew," cries
another, and so on. Surely the Democratic organs nre taking up a quite untenable position. It ia usually admitted
both by American nnd English subjects
that the British Government is about as
free from the reproach of perpretrating
"jobs" as is the responsible Ministry of
anv country, and yet if we remember
aright Mr. Gladstone soon after taking
office in 1868 appointed his son W. H.
Gladstonea junior Lord of the Admiralty.
Lord Beaconsfield gave his brother Mr.
Ralph D'lsraeli, a lucrative post in connection with the House of Commons.
The Marquis of Salisbury gavo the Chief
Secretaryship of Ireland to his nephew
Mr. Arthur Balfour.We could easily multiply these instances, but they are enough
for our purpose. We do not remember
having heard the charge of "nepotism"
brought against any of these eminent
statemen. Who can blame Prince Bismarck for choaing his son Count Herbert
to succeed him in his arduous duties to
tho Fatherland. Is it not fair to presume
that the near relation of a powerful
minister is more likely to understand and
carry out his—the minister's—views than
would bo a stranger. Besides there ia
something in "descent." Witness the
great families which have some of them
for hundreds of years—supplied Great
Britain with statesmen. The Stanleys—
Cavandishes, Bentincks, Cecils, Gros-
venors nnd others. If President Harrison can bo accused by his political opponents of no worse fault than that of
"nepotism," wo think he will have a
cleaner record than moBt eminent men
can show.

This was a good way ot getting rid of a

"Webster," said But us Choate, ono day, "I
want to borrow $500 and I wish you'd lend it
tome."
"I haven't the money today, Mr. Choate,"
said Webster, "but you give me your note and
I guess I can get it cashed for you."
Gratified beyond measure, Choate sat down
to write his note.
"By the way, Choate," said Webster, In an
off hand way, "you might as well make that
note for a thousand, as I can uso (SOO myself."
"Certainly," said Choate, cheerfully, and
be signed a note for an even thousand.
Then the immortal Daniel sauntered down
to a banker's office.
"Ah 1 anything I can do for you today, Mr.
Webster I"
"Can yon discount a note for a thousand
for met"
"With pleasure."
The great statesman pocketed (1,000 In
bills, gave 1600 to Choate, who was effusive
In hia thanks, and kept the other (500 himself.

be called in these days "a financier."—Lewis-

THE   LIME   KILN   CLUB.
The   Subject   of   Honesty    Discussed   by
Waydown Bebee and Elder Toots.
After the reading ot the minutes of the
last meeting and other routine business,
Brother Gardner stated that he had been
asked to secure an expression of opinion on
the question: "Does It Pay to be Strictly
Honest!" He would call upon Sir Isaac Wal-
pole, as the oldest member, first.
"I war in hopes dat queshun would nebber
cum up in dis club," said tbe old veteran in
reply. "It ar' a queshun which has caused
me many sleepless nights, an' which I hev
nebber bin able to settle to my own satisfack-
shun. On ouo occosbun I found a wallet In
de road. It contained $30, an' when I restored it to de owner he handed me all de
money an' thanked me besides. On several
other occashuns I bev found wallets and spent
$3 worth of time hunt in' up de owner an' bin
rewarded wid 10 cents. A grocer once gin
me a $10 dollar bill fur a $1. I banded it
back an' ho giv' me half a pound of tea. De
very noxt weok I giv' liim a $5 bill fur a
$2, an' be kept it on1 swore dat I was a liar.
"If I buy moat do butcher work, mo' or
less bone in on me," continued the old man.
"If I buy wood or coul it ar' alius a leetle
short. I expect do dry goods man to cheat
mo mo' or less, an' do batter an' shoemaker
doan' alius stick to foclts. If I war' strictly
honest I reckon I should land In do poo'houso
In about a year. 1 doan' advise any ono to
be dishonest, but it nr' my opinyun dat if
you find a pug dog ruiinin' around de streets
be should be taken homo and tied up to de
bed post until somo one advertises u liberal
reward an' no quoshuns axed."
Waydown Bobeo then spoko as fe^jpws:
"Dar' was a thno whon I was so strictly
honest dat ober fifty of the nayburs' chickens
used to roost in my back yard o' nights. At
de same time dem nayburs borrowed money
of me an' dun forgot to pay it back, an' If I
left a spade out doabs ober night lt was gone
in de mawnin'. If I owed a debt I ached to
go an' wake do man up at midnight an' pay
him. If I found half a dozen lead nickels In
my change, I melted 'em up fur bullets to
shoot cats. If I diskivered ten cents on de
floahin de postoffice I handed it to de poet-
master. I practiced dis course fur fivo long
years, an' doorin' dat time I not only run behind $1,000, but I heard myself spoken of on
all sides as a greenhorn, a pancake an' an
Idiot I finally decided to change. In five
years I has picked up ober $3,000, am out of
debt an' grocers an' butchers send to my
house and solicit my trade. When you ax
me if it pays to bo strictly honest I mus' ro-
ply dat it don't—not by a jug full!"
Elder Toots was then called upon, and ho
said:
"If dar' am any one pusson in Detroit who
has had chicken fur dinner any of tenor dan I
her I should like to seo bis photograph, an'
yit wbar' am de pusson who dare stan' up an'
say I steal chickens I I used to be strictly
honest. If I found a cent In de road I went
whoopln' up an' down to find an owner. If a
$25 lost dog crept under my house to bo taken
keer of until advertised I drovo him out an'
let de man next doab get de money. I not
only paid the house rent ou the day it was
due, but mado all repairs out o' my own
pocket I run right down hill, an' by an'
by I woke up to find de old woman out
o' 'taters flour, meat, sugar, tea and
ebenything else 'copt Rough on Rats
an' two bars o1 soap, whilo my toes
w'ar' out to Jlnuary weather. On dat same
mornin', as I was gwino down town, I heard
one man say to another; 'Say, Jim, seo dat
pusson! He or' do fool niggor of Detroit, If
be had a quarter wld n hole in it ho would
frow it in do ribbor fur fear of accidentally
passin' lt off on a millyonary.' Dat sot me
to thiukin'. Dat very night I stole a lot of
wood, three chickens, a bog o' taters an' a
pair of butes, an' I hev prospered eber since.
I specks it will be a leetle harder ou me when
I cum to de gates of heaven, but I am doln'
powerfully well down yere below on' increas-
in'my fat ebery day.'—Detroit Free Press.

A Fow Earnest Kicks from the Enterprising Journal.
We take ths following extracts from a late
Issue of The Arizona Weekly Kicker:
"Apoloqetical.—We are compelled to
apologize to our subscribers for the typographical appearance of the present issue.
Owing to the snow blockade, a keg of ink
which we ordered weeks ago failed to reach
us, and rather than miss an issue wo compounded a substitute. We don't seem to have
hit the right proportions, or else molasses
and lampblack are not the proper substitutes.
'As it will be impossible for subscribers to
make out any of tho reading matter, wo will
solace them with the statement that there is
little or nothing worth reading. We hadn't
much time to give to the paper last weok,
and it is just as well that we hadn't. It would
bave been time thrown away."
"Tiik Usual Reward.—We understand
that Arizona Joe, Col. Hilton, Dick Fensbaw
and other ingrates are going about with tbe
statement that wo were horsewhipped by tbe
Widow Uurnhain one day last week. When
w* refer to these hyenas as living liars, wedo
so in all gentleness. We can't afford to get
mad and kick such freaks of nature. Arizona
Joe is wearing a collar we lent him from our
slim stock, and if anyone will rip the colonel's
coat down the back ho will find one of our
undershirts surrounding thelngrate's body.
When Dick Fensbaw struck this town he
hadn't eaten anything but pig weed for three
days, and he was trying to make a pack of
cards cover bis nakedness. We filled his
stomach, gave him a coat and lifted him out
of the slough. This is our reward. Sick
transit!   Sick gratitude!   Sick hyena!"
"Welcomm Back.—Professor Whitewater
entered The Kicker office day before yesterday with beaming smile and extended band,
after au absence of about ten month, spent
in the penitentiary. He was unfortunate
enough, lt will be remembered, to hurt somo
one in a little dispute, and the court thought
it best for him to take a little vacation.
"The professor returns home looking In
good health end filled with enthusiasm over
the progress the town has made during his
absence. We welcome him. A little state
prison experience hasn't hurt him, nor won't
hurt any of our townsmen.'—Detroit Free

Here Is a good story told of Roddy's Confederate cavalry: One day the troopers were

left Of course every fourth man felt Jolly
and this is the way the count went on:
"One," "Two," "Three," "BuUyl" "One,"
"Two," "Threo," "Bullyl" etc. Gen. Roddy
heard each fourth man call out "Bully." His
face flushed. When all had called off he
said: "Numbers one, two and bully will go
into the fight as dismounted cavalry. Number three will hold the horses." There ware
a good many sick "bullies" that day,—Chicago Ledger.

Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the Kast. As a remedy of general utility,
wc much question whether a letter is imported into thc country, and we shall tie
glad to hear of its lindinj- a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to tht
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. Wc could multiply instances

Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce.

as. general Sedative, that have oeenrrcd
Utldt. t uur personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used -.ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly thc best, and
also from a sense of duty wc owe to the pro]
fession and thc public, as we are of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OK FAITH ON THE TART

New Industry Ior Nanaimo.
Mr. T. C. Brainard, president of the
Hamilton Powder Works, with Captain
Gordon the local agent, paid a visit to
Nanaimo last week with the intention
of selecting a suitable site upon whicli
to establish a Powder Factory. They
were accompanied in their drive of some
miles into the bush by one of our most
popular hotel proprietors, with whose
assistance they soon found the exact spot
which had been described to them as
being most favorable for their purposes.
Though matters are not definitively settled as to the purchase of the land required,
from the V. C. Co. Superintendent, yet
we understand that there is every probability of a mutually satisfactory agreement being speedily reached, Capt.
Gordon and Mr. Brainard were again in
tftwn to-day—hence we presume the
"Nanaimo Powder Factory" will shortly
become an accomplished fact.

Hnsalan War snip.
On Wednesday afternoon a Russian
sloop of war, thc Kreysser, arrived in
Esquimalt. She saluted the British
men-of-war, firing twenty-three guns for
the Rear-Admiral and his ship the Swift"
Bure, and nine guns each in honor of the
other ships. The British ships replied
with a salute of nine guns each. The
Kreysser will remain at Esquimalt two
or three days, coaling, after which she
will proceed to Victoria. The Kreysser
is a screw corvette of 1500 tons register
and 15 indicated horse power, and carries six Hotchkiss guns, two (1-inch guns
on deck, five 9 pounders, one torpedo
gun and six Whitehead torpedoes. After
visiting Victoria the Kreysser will proceed to Fetropavlovski, and from there to
Vladivostock, where she will join the
Russian squadron.
There aro several dough-bends around
who, though they cannot attend to their
own business, feel perfectly competent
to manage that of tlieir neighbors. This
idea is not confined to our city of Nanainio
by any means, it prevails in every city or
village I have travelled through, through
perhaps not in such a marked degree
as here. It seems to me that instead of
the famous motto which is carved all
round the temple ol Diana at Ephesus,
"Alan know thyself," a considerable portion of my fellow townsfolk might fairly
adopt as tlieir motto, man know thy
neighbor and all about bim.
Nanaimo can boast of as tough a lot of
youngsters as any city of hor size and
age on the const. From worrying a
Chinaman to harrying an orchard they
can hold their own with any youth on
Tar Flat or the City Front. Some time
ago one of tlie kills of this rising city being out of cash cudgelled his brains lo
raiso the ready. While Wandering around
with his eyes considerably open, he spied
an old hen sitting on a baiter's dozen of
eggs underneath the place ot business of
a well-known restaurant man. It did
not take him long to make up hia mind,
down lie went, seized the eggs and sold
them for 25 cents lo their original owner.
That youth will make his mark. The
restaurateur said he would also, on the
boy, but finally decided to laugh at it as
a good joke on himself.
Mr. Jobs, may's Orcltcslra.
Several of the beBt known musicians
in our city have, we understand, agreed
to form a "band" with Mr. J. May as
conductor. The names of those who are
to compose the "band" are as follows:
L. H. May, John May, Geo. Bushford,
violinists; Wm. Laidlaw, flute; G. Goodman and G. Foster, clarionete; James
Marple and James London, cornet a
piston; A. Bittencourt, bass; H. Johnson, drum, etc.
Engagements will be entered into by
the above on short notice.
Mr. John May is no novice at wielding
the conductor's baton, having had a
large and varied experience in the great
cities of the East. He may be found at
Mr. Sehl's furniture store, on Commercial street, at any time of the day.

Tne Steamer Empire.
The steamer Empire arrived yesterday
from San Francisco via Roach Harbor,
having been 7 days out from San Francisco. Heavy fogs are reported all along
the coast, making the trip up necessarily
slow.
Capt. Butler informs us that on his last
trip down to San Francisco he passed
through several floating pieces of wreckage belonging to the Bteamer Alaskan.
"Hiey were mostly boards painted blue
and pieces of rigging. A sharp lookout
was kept for the wrecked sailors, but
without success.
The* steamer Wellington was sighted
on Wednesday off Cape Flattery. The
Empire brought up considerable freight.
IHonsrollan Mangle snaps.
The Chinese wash-house plague is worrying Nanaimo just now. These Mongolian mangle shops wouldn't bo so bad if
the awful filthy suds were not emptied
into the streets; if the washers would not
wear out the clothes; if they would wash
them clean; if they would rinse out thc
soap; il the—well, its no use, there are
no redeeming features.—Standard.

The new coal mine lately struck al
Canmore is likely to turn out to be a very
lucrative one. The mine ia one mile
from the track of the C. P. R.,to which
a short line will be constructed. The
Bow River will be spanned by a fine
bridge. The outlay so far in connection
with the enterprise has been about $50,-

One of our local druggists yesterday
thought lie bad a soft snap when he managed to take a cigar out of a friend's
pocket, but did not notice the smile lhat
went around at the time. Ue duly lit it
and pronounced it bully, but shortly afterwards changed his mind when it began to smoke and smell like a burnt tarpaulin. He broke it in half and found
that it had been stuffed With tarred rope.
He paid for the drinks for the crowd,
and will in future buy his own cigars and
be sure they are Gable's own,

between George Baker's horse, Sleepy
Dan, and A. Cassell's horse, Royal, have
decided to divide the stakes, which
amount to $100. It is rumored that both
parties want the "whole hog or none,"

run to decide which is tho faster horse.

For thumping a little Victoria policeman weing about 260 pounds, Mr. E. E.

SHIPPING  NEWS.
PLENTY   OK   (101.D THERE.
One of the miners who has been
working and prospecting for some time
on Texada Island, called nt tlie Cot'aiEE
office yesterday and gave some very welcome news of that already widely known
place. He informed us that several men
were out prospecting, and though very
few had reported any great finds, every
one he had come in contact with seemed
satisfied and believed in a great future
for Texada.
The Blue Bell claim is already down
about 30 feet and the ore looks promising,
and he says there is very little doubt that
in the near future something good will be
turned out of it, He is not interested in
thc mine, so his opinion is valuable.
Several other mines were mentioned in
the course of conversation, but the Vancouver Syndicate and the Vancouver
Company seemed to be favorites with
him, as thev are already doing well, the
rock assayed having shown respectable
figures from the start.
Several men arc prospecting all over
the Island and also on the islands contiguous to Texada.
For his part he thinks that the Mainland and Vancouver Island directly opposite Texada deserve more attention
than tbey have received.
He tells an interesting tale of how one
of the prospectors one eveningfoundhimself on the summit of Mr. Sheppard,
3,000 feet above tlie level ofthe sea, and
not knowing the way to his camp, prepared to make himself as comfortable as
he could for the night. He had no axe,
but found a pine tree covered with
pitch near the roots, and touching a
match to it soon had a roaring fire which
he had fed with branches and pieces of
bark he picked up. During the night
he was very much scared to hear several
wolves howling around him and to
keep them off had to keep awake and
feed his fire with the small pieces of fuel
he could gather within its glow.- He
was even afraid to look for bigger
sticks, and was infinitely pleased
when daylight broke and wearv and
worn he plodded down the mountain side
only to find that some animal had eaten
all the cooked food he had.
It had generally been allowed before
that the wolves had been driven off the
Island by the continuous hunting and
trapping of Harry Trim, the discoverer
of the Texada Iron mine, who killed them
for their skins and government bounty.
