Ninth Year
FIRST CYCLE PATH
Dr- Doolittle Has Another
Scheme on Foot.
OPERA HOUSE ENGAGED
Net Profits of Performance on Saturday
Bight Will Be Devoted to
the Ojde Path.
Not cimiont with having arranged
for tlm establishment of a gas and j
ooke works 111 Nelson, with having
banded a promising property on Toad
Mountain, and having performed aud
assisted in performing n large number
of medical operations here, the indefatigable1 Dr. Doolie tie has hit ou a
plan which seems to ensure n good i
cycle path luing among the earliest de- I
velopnieuts of the immediate future.
He lias made all necessary arrangements with tho Company now showing here, and anticipates no diffloulty
in making the necessary arrangements with Mr. J. K. Amiable, the
manager of the Opera House. Hii
plan is to buy out the performance on
Saturday night, and give the net proceeds to the uew cycle path. Saturday
is tho lust nightjifjho Lyceum Co.'s
stay, nud thoy will play "Borneo and
Juliet." The enmnany are doing so
well here that a bumper house in that
uight is a forgone conclusion even if
the performance were not iu aid of a
special object like tho presetnt one. It
will he remembered that the' City
Council have promised to givo $800 if
tho cyclists will subscribe half of that
amount, and it is hoped by this means
to raise the necessary $150 if not more.
The boon to Nelsou of a decent cycle
path will be incalculable, for at present there is nowhere to ride hue ou
tho main streets. The path will probably go out toward. Five Mile Point
and will he from six to eight miles in
length, thus affording a very pleasant spin to wheelmen, There is uo
regular cycle path, fo far, anywhere
else in the Kootenays, r.nd the fact of
them being one at, Nelson will greatly
add to its attractions from a residential poiut of view. There, are a largo
number of cyclists already iu the
City, and there would be many more
if there was anywhere to cycle to on
a decent road. Ur. Doolittle is to be
congratulated on having originated
such a practical idea, and one calculated to do much good to the City nt
large. There will bo no difficulty in
getting a full house, for, -judging from
the performances so far, their performances of "Borneo aud Juliet" will
be well worth watching.
NEW     RAILWAY     SURVEY.
A   Liue   Beiug   Surveyed    Down   in
"Washington State.
Goldendule, \Vnsh.. May 10.���"They
are actually surveying down the north
side of the Columbia river, and there
is no mistake." said Henry Stegeman
the Klickitat sheep prince today. One
dav of last week ho had ooeasioii to go
from his Horse Heaven ranges to
Pioneer Jade Switzler's farm at a
poiut, opposite Old Umatilla City. Ou
his arrival there ho noticed the unusual presence of brand new tents staked
near the oldest orchard in Klickitat,
county. Later on the fact was elicted
from Mr. Switzer that there was a
party of Hi railroad surveyors camped
there, and they were now running a
line of survey below his field. The
partv had siuveyed to that point from
the Mills place, opposite Wallula. It
is said numbered stakes are roeul nlv
- driveu over all tho survey to Switz-
*'t'b. Mr. Switzler is of the opinion
tho road he has been dreaming of for
!I0 years is going to wake to a reality.
He says tho engineer in cliargo seems
to be carefully prepariug maps and
estimates of construotiiou as progress
of the survev advances. Ho is further of the opinion the surveyors are
in the field for the Northern Pacific,
or the recentlv reorganized Union

make bullets.

Spokane,     Mny     10.���lhe      charge
against Deputy Inland   Revenue   Collector W. S. Jones of Rossland, B, O.,
of embezzling the funds of the Canadian Government hai been   withdrawn.
Jones, who   is   now   iu Spokane, under the hospitable roof of   his   friend,
Dave 'ONeil, the mining man, will go
back   to     Rossland     ns a   free   man,
though not   lo   lesuine tlio  duties   of

about Jones being au embezzler, Jones
never   embezzled   at   all.    He   merely
wont ou a spreo, spout $1,242 of money

were   called   off the case.    Jones  has
giveu satisfactory surety that  the Dominion money he so thoughtlessly used
on his spree will bo   returned, so   thut
neither   bondsmen    will       suffer.    It
seems that Revsbach's reason  for   obtaining the   warrant for Jones'   arrest
from Judge Jordan   was   not   that  he
might   wreak   vongoance     on   Jones,

Hoganshnrg, N. Y., May 10.���Later
developments of the situation at St.
Regis confirm the view expressed hy
Father Bourget, that the Indian ringleaders of the riot of March 27th last
have decided, us the safost course, to
surrender at discretion and entrust
themselves to the mercy of u Govern
ment whose clomencv they have often
experienced, and whose severity they
have only lately had reason to dread.
Tho futility of resisting the strong
arm of tbo law seems to have been
thoroughly realized by tho people of
the reserve, und a cogent argument is
found in the fact that the expense occasioned by continued resistance
may bo defrayed out of the fund which
was set apart at the time of the nssuin-

THE PACIFIC CABLE.
Ottawn dispntehes to various pupers
givo tho full text of tbo offer made by
the British Columbia Government,
to aid in the construction of tlio Pacific cable.    It is as follows:
"Victoria, B. C., May b.
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Ottawa.���Tho
Government observes with groat regret
that further difficulties have arisen iu
connection with tbe Pacific cable
scheme. It regards the enterprise as
of vast importance and absolutely necessary if "Uanndn is to secure" hor
proper share of Pacific commerce,
winch it believes will rapidly assume
largo proportions. Particularly is the
enterprise of moment to British Columbia, the Dominion gateway to the
Pacific. On these grounds this Government feels justified in assisting the
realization of tho scheme beyond what
is involved in its Provincial share of
Dominion responsibility. Tho Government therefore will assume for tho
Province one-ninth of the cost of that,
on arrangements similar to tho-o with
the Australian colonies. Honing that
in thus strengthening the bauds of
the Dominion Govornmeut the consummation of this important enterprise may
bo achieved.
"(Signed) F. CARTER COTTON,
Minister of Finance, British Columbia."
A Pacific cable would be a commercial convenience to Cauada nnd Australia, and would uo doubt promote
the trade of both. It was in thnt belief the project was first mooted eight
or ten yours ago ; but its construction
was principally urged ou the ground
that it would make for Imperial unity
and consolidation It was on thut
grouud tbe British Government were
asked to join with the colonies iu carrying the project to completion, and
on that grouud only have the British
Government consented to consider it.
It has boon bofore thorn all these years,
and after all tho cousideratiou they
havo been able to givo it they come to
the conclusion thnt us an Imperial
measure it is not important enough to
warrant tbe responsibility of assuming
a partnership iu its construction, with
a shure of the cost estimated at five-
eighteentbs nf the whole. They decline this, and offer instead, with the
suggestion that Canada, and Australia
assume tho work to support it with a
ubsidy of twenty thousand pounds a
year for twenty years, conditional,
however, on half rates for official messages. The Government ut the seat of
Empire, the home of Imperialism,
look upou it as a purely business
enteririso, aud make in conuectiou
with it a purely business offer.
If a Pacific cable is worth to Canada
and Australia, ns a commercial enterprise the sum of niue millions of dollars, less tho vuluo of the Imperial
subsidy, thoy will go ou and build it.
By the act of the British authorities
themselves the Imperial idea is eliminated ; there is no longer any excuse
now* for rogardiug it in any other
light than that of dollars und cents.
To the extent thut it would promote
Pacific trade, it would uo doubt beneficially affect this Province more directly than tho othors. But the benefit would not bo half ns grout iib that
derived from tho establishment of
direct postal communication, with the
necessary Hue of llrst-cluss steamships.
Yot it was never suggested that this
Province, or any other Province, should
assume a Bharo of tho expense of postal development. Thut wus a matter
eutirely outside the sphere of Provincial duty or responsibility, tt is even
more so in this wise, aud there would
be infinitely less reason or excuse for
voting a million towards the Pacific
cable than there would havo been for
double tlie amount as a subsidy in aid
of the steamship linos to Australia und
Hong Kong. In their toudor of a
million, Ministers proposs that the
Province shall go out of its way and ut
great expense to itself meddle in
affairs that do not conoern it. The
proposition is so absurd that beforo
the usual nine days of wonderment it
will be laughed out of court.
The Minnesota editors who crossed
to the Coast last summer over the C.
P. R. havo not forgotten their trip,
and judging from a handsome booklet, they have just issued thoir enthusiasm has not even cooled. The little
publication is mndo up of twenty-seven
views of tho excursion fiom the 18e
who participated, and it is pleasing
to note tbat their appreciation of Canadian hospitality has lost nothing of
its warmth during tho eight or nine
months that huve intervened. As ono
of them expresses it���and it will do for
tho 184 others: "Canada's scenery,
welcome, and brotherly love will ever
find a homo iu our memories und
hearts."

Mr. Simon D. Onl,   well   known in
thu Kootenays, hns  been   in   Loudon,
where lie gave   an    interview   to   The
Colonial Goldfields  Gazette,     Of   tho
mines generally he  said:    "Rossland
and ihe Boundary Country are at preseut, the copper-gold strongholds,though
in East   Kooteuay   and   other parts of
the Provinco we have immense   deposits of the same ons lying idle for want
of capital.    In Hossland the far-famed
lie   Boi   aud   War   Eagle   have   now
taken thoir place   among   tho  loading
mines of tho world,   und   the   Centre
Star   is   fair   to   make   a   very  ureal
name.    Theso   nro   not by any    moans
thu only mines iu   Rossland, while i u
tho Bouudary and Nelson   districts are
many  properties   whieh   aro likely   to
hold their   own   with  tho   best.    The
Slocan is probably   the richest    silver-
lead camp in the  world,   ihough  East
Kootenay may, in tho near future, oust
it from  tho   proud   position   it   now
fills.    As a   rule,   ono   does   uot   hear
mnoh about the mines of this  class  of
ore, seeing that   vory   many  of  them
have paid from tho 'grass roots' consequently remaining   in very few bands,
uo outside   oapital   being   needed   for
development.    Some   of   the mines in
this   divisions   would     hi ill   keep   mi
working with silver at the  unheard of
prico of Is. per   ounce.    Returning   to
the East Kootenay, wo find all   classes
of miuoruls���silver, lead, oopper, gold,
and niauy others; grey copper   (Tetra-
hedrite) being   particularly   plentiful.
Iu   the  Crow's   Nest     district      wo
have also   immmense   deposits  of coal
which   yislds    au excellent    class  of
coke." Mr.   Old said we had to thank
������the Americans for our start in mining.   Had we waited for British capital
we would still bo   uuboru as a mining
centre.    We   are   only   i.  baby  yet, I
grant   you,   but   a   remarkably   lusty
one."   The     principal     drawback   is
maladministration    of     companies.
"I could   name   numbers  of  dreadful
fiascos, not   the fault of  the  oonntry,
but solely clue to mismanagement.   If
you liko I will tell you of   one.    Onc6
upon a time a company   with  a  large
capital was floated iu Great Britaiu to
take ovor a prospect iu British Columbia.    A road was made to the so called
mine, but  before it   was  constructed
there had been a fairly good pack trail.
Afterwards, well, there was a so-called
road   which was not oven a good pack
trail.    The said road was built, by contract.    At oue time there  were  more
officials than miners (uot counting the
head offioe),    Machinery  was  bought
aud delivered at  the station, but after
its arrival the management came to the
conclusion   that the property was   not
sufficiently developed to   warrant  the
setting up of tho machiuery.
The result is that tho machinery is
there now rusting away. This kind of
thiug doue ouce or twice is sullicient
to give any country   a   bad   name."
He was asked what kiud of a company would most likely succeed: "I
answer most emphatically, a strong
development company, such as the
British-America Corporation, for instance. Por such a concern, if properly
conducted there awaits a golden harvest. Let them secure men who
have seon mining in the field, aud
who know the conditions and ores of

Despite its lond of fraudulent claims
and wildcat schemes,   the mining   industry has paid more   dividends, compared with othei industries  started iu
the last thirty  years, than   any   business known.    Compare   the profits  in
mining with the profits of the   150,000
odd miles of raailroad,  with   the   ng
gregatod liabilities of  noarly $10,000,-

there   exists   some of  the   safest  and
