Columbia and hundreds of thousands of dollars can be turned this way if the
wealth and resources of tbo Nelson district can be properly presented to the
lnonied men of tho  woild.    Now is the timo to advertise.
Thn Miner hns mado arrangements for the publication of a Special Kootonay Number which will bo out as early in Juno as the great amount of work
to be done on it will permit. It will be a sixteen page paper, the pages to
be the same size as this one, and will deal exhaustively with the mining und
commercial interests of tbo City, tho advantages of Nelson ns a residential
Oity. the inducement it offers sportsmen aud, iu fact, everything that a staff
of competent; writers think will in anyway benefit tho Oity. jTio mines of
tbo district will be described aud viows of them published, the business bouses
will be written up and onts of the most prominent ones will appear, there
will bo views of the Oity and Lake,portraits of prominent citizens, tho Mayor,
Aldermen, school trustees, leading business men, etc, will graco its pages,
a map showing Nelsou as the central point of both Kootenays will be a feature���over six pages in all dealing with Nelson's past, present and future.
The special Kootenay number will go still farther, It will carefully and
accurately describe the silvory Slocan, it will contain articles on and viows
of Slooan City, Silverton, New Denver, Sandon, Kaslo and olher Slocan
points. Tbo mines will be described and views of them published, the leading business men will receive attention and the wealth of tho district faithfully portrayed. Tho Crow's Nest Pass linn towns will be treated in a similar manner and Ymir, Erie and Salmo will be handled in the same way. No
other places will receive attention���these that have heou advertised to the exclusion of Nolson and the poinis mentioned above will have to stand aside
while the Bull's Eye of  the  Kootenays has its say.
Then a *,.orri about the paper itself: It will bo published on the finest book
paper and will he profusely illustrated with" the best half tone engravings
procurable. In all,there will pro'iably be over a hundred illustrations. The
work will bo the very best that money can procure and the edition will be a
credit to tho City and district.
The spoeial Kootonay number will bo sent to all the regular subscribers to
both Daily aud Weekly Miner, it will be circulated in all the mining nnd
commeicial centres of the Kootenays, among the boards of (rado, mining exchanges and libraries of Canada aud the United States, tbe leading boards ot
trade, chambers of commerce and mining exchanges of Great Britain, it will
be sent to all tho daily papers in Canada and a groat many of theso in the
States and Great Britain. Iu fact, it, will bo sent wherever it is considered
good to the Kootenays can bo done.
This publication onvolves great expenditure, and The Miner trusts that it
will receive the hearty support of lhe i regressive citizeus of the Kootenays in
its loyal efforts to lay before the world the claims o 'this rich district to the
attention of thoso who havo money to invest, or who are looking for n locality
that offers tho most inducements to those auxious to como west.
Tbe Special Kootenay Number will not bo a medium for the exploiting of
any wild cats. It will be an accurate, reliable aud carefully prepared presentation of tho resources of the Kootenays as they are.

Toronto, Ont , Mny 2. ���The executive committee of the Dominion Alliance has had issued a circular endorsing the proposal thnt the Alliance shall
uow ill its efforts to secure prohibition,
endeavor to procure legislation which
will enable individual provinces lo secure prohibition bv simply voting in
favor of prohibition at tho general
Federal elections, which legislation,
when adopted by the Provinoes, to bo
unavailable for a period of lime long
enough to ensure a fair test of its
effectiveness, A circular issued by
the Alliauce says that Quebec, "as
part of the Dominion, ought, to loyally
accept the decision ot  the majority of
ill voting electors, but, we hnve to deal
with tho fnct   that  Parliament could
not ho induced to enact a law of national prohibition. The proposed votes
will not be," says tbo circular, "mere
expressions of opinion, hut actual law
making action, bringing prohibition
into force by a majority vole in each
Province.'1

A  Strong   Flea  That   the   Controversy
May Cease Boforo more Feopla
arc Kuined.
London, May  2.���Tbo Birmingham
Post says it, learns that the French
Government intends to anticipate tho
revision of tho Dreyfus court martial
by setting him at liberty in advance ot
tbe termination of judicial proceedings. According to this plan, the
Post says, ou June 1 tho prisoner will
he released, but in order that the,
army shall not bo disturbed, compensation will he awarded to Dreyfus, so
that he, with his family, may live
outside of Franco.
Paris, May 2.���The Journal des De-
bats prints a letter from General Gal-
Hot, au eminent retired ofBoer, pleading for a trnco iu tho Droyfus controversy, The letter attraots all tho attention for tbo reason that General
Qttlliet has remained neutral in the
affair, although he was a witness iu
tho case before tho Criminal Branch of
tho Court of Cassation. Tho Drey-
tnsites, however, regard it as probable
lhat be has been put forward by tho
general staff, whose last line of defense
must be an appeal to pity. Tho lotto' is as follows:
"Dreyfus is on Devil's Island, Pic-
quart is prosecuted, and Esterhazy
has absoonded, Henry is dead aud Du
Paly do Chun is threatened with n
court martial. Is n it that enough
*���'. '..��������� ��� ������'��� .,..'��� ,:-.hy ���:. ..-:r. ���:': UoW-

snpori* r mid other ollicers who havo
heen more or lo s mixed up in the dis
nstrntis affair be delivered over to
them. Would it not be belter to at
least decide on silence? Would it not
ho more prudent, more generous and
it the sninn time more patriotic not to
continue io incriminate officers that
no tribunal would dream of implicating'*1 The army knows them and
will admit that Ibcy have made a mistake, hut it knows that they aro men
of honor, incapable of committing a
bad action. It is said that members o
the Government promised the eleottrs
that certain punishments would be iu-
Iticted. 1 respectfully counsel the Government to abandon thin determination
since no one will become firmer because it may have once shown itself
too severe in the interast of the country, iu that of tbo army, and with tho
objeot of pacifying the publio mind. I
trust my appeal will be heard. He who
addresses you bas taken no part in the
affair, and be thinks hi loves Franco
better and more wisely than those who
continue to daily discredit its  army. "
Paris, May 2.���Iu tho Chamber of
Deputies today,a number of interpellations were introduced on tho Dreyfus
revelations. The Premier, M. Dupiiy,
moved that tbey be adjourned until lifter the Court of Oasssntlou shall have
pronounced judgment ou tbe mutter.
The motion was adopted.

Oommons today, 'luring the debate ou
the budget and the finance bill, Mr
Leonard Courtney, Unionists mem-
her for the Bodemin division of Cornwall and formerly Deputy Spenker ot
the House, in a vigorous speech opposed the   reduction    of   the   siiikinij
fund proposed   by   Sir  Miohael Hioka
Beach, Chancellor   of the   Exchequer
lie'hired that   Groat,   Britain wus now
on the   top  wave of  prosperity and
should reduce her liabilities to the utmost possible. "England' he said
"now faced a gravor danger than war'
in tbe existing industrial competition in coal and iron. Aheudy the
United States produced both cheaper
than England, and was nblo to compete with   England   in steel."
"How long," he asked, "could Eng-
land stund this?" He deemed the question a verv grave one. Tbe House
passed the bill to a second reading by
2SU votes against 155.

MR. HUME, author;
The most interesting of the Government publications al Victoria, tho annual report of the Minister of Minis,
has just been issued. It is n bulky
volume, and coutnius much information,the greater portion of it of a statistical oharaoter; it is natnral that
much time should be consumed in
compiling it, but ono could wish thai
the report dealing with tho principal
industry of the Province did no**** ro-
quire as long s period as four months
in its preparation. The information it contains is valuable but if it
wero moro freshly served it would be
bettor appreciated. And while these annual reports are necessary and should
bo continued, tlio Department should
consider whether it is not possible and
of interest to the Province to furnish
returns of mining operations more [re
qnently than onco a year. Thoso arc
days of enterprise and progress, of push
and rush ; and those engaged in mining, who arc dependent ou mining,
and who have tbeir capital invested iu
mining, classes that embrace neatly
tho entire population would no glad if
the Government would keep thorn
more closely iu touch with mining development. This can be said without
in tho least depreciating tho value and
importance of Mr. Hume's very excellent and interesting publication, tioing
the annual report for the year ending
31st December 1898.
In tho compilation of tho report the
Provincial Mineralogist, Mr. Robertson, is careful to explain that the
general form established by his pre
decessor, Mr. Carlyle has beeu faithfully adhered to. That ho has followed it closely is a compliment to that
gentleman, hut ho is himself none the
less deserving of credit or taking his
places readily and completing the
work in a manner in every respect so
satisfaotn-y. In his introductory li t-
ter, addressed to the Minister,be says:
"In gathering tho material for the
statistics I have beeu met by a ready
compliance with the requirements of
the Inspection of Metalliferous Mines
Act, IS!)?, and havo received in evory
instance the detailed statement as to
production therein provided for, based
on smelter or mill returns. I believe
the returus to be correct, aud I think
they will be found to be practically
complete." This ought to suggest that
the same ready compliance nnd the
samo completeness of returns would
be experienced if an offort were mode
to gather and publish these statistics
monthly instead of annually. A hint
of something of this nature dropped
at some favorable moment by Mr.JRob-
ertson, might have tho effect of starting the Ministers mind revolving
around the idea, and who knows what
gratifying results might come of tbat
very simple but apparently unusual
operation?
It would requiro several columns for
a complete review of all the features
of this report that aro of interest to
readers of The Minor. Briefest reference to somo of tho figures will have
to suffice. Tho total production of all
minerals, from tho first mining in
British Columbia up to and including 18118, is $12:1,-117,320 of which gold
contributes in value $06,469,72*5 and
coal aud coke uext, credited with
$40,806,160. From 1800 the production
increased from |3,608,808 to $10,906,-
801 in 1898. It is worthy of note that
copper is the only metal that has steadily maintained an increase in recent
years, which may bo taken to indicate
that it will grow in importance until
it takes rank as ono of our principal
productions. Silver aud lend fell off
last year, in comparison with the returns for 181)7. Of tho mining districts
West Kootenay is by many degrees
the largest producer, yielding $6,042,���
B76 of tho total metal product last
year of ??, 172,700. The office statistics of the Nel-ou division show
up largely in comparison with the
others Last year the bflls of sale
wero DO!); free miners' certificates,
2,175; mineral locations, 1,48 assessments, 1,649; certificates of Improvement, B9;plaoer claims locations. 02.
These exceed Ihe figures for the Trail
Oreok division iu all save free miners'
certificates. The descriptive matter
devoted to the Nelson division is
confined exclusively to tho Hall Mines
smelter, and is composed of a report
by Mr. Hedloy, the superintendent,
who contributes some interesting in
formation. We quote the concluding
sentence as au example : "We are of
tho opinion that it iB not economical
to handle ores with a high percentage
of lead, for the reason that the bullion
shipped, having a higher railroad clas-
Tbat wns an astute suggestion of Dr.
Doolittlo's that he would not object
to tho Oouucil establishing ti minimum
price for gas, in order to prevent competition with the corporation as owner
of au electric light plant. Tho Doctor will ho glad to got as good a prioe
as possible, no doubt, but as tho electric light plant is the property of the
oitlzens, not of lhe members of the
Council, i; is possible the citizens
may prefer tlio cheapest anil best light
whether supplied by themselves or
somo ono else. If our electric light
plant will not stand fair and honest
competition with gas, the most rudimentary principle of economics would
teach   ns  to   abandon   it. altogether.

TO BE TAKEN FROM THK MAILS
American   Postmaster   General   Takes
Action Regarding Circulars.
Boston, Muss., May 2.���The Hon.
Edward Atkinson, vice president of
oho anti-Imperialists League, this afternoon was shown the Washington
despatch saying lh.it lhe Postmaster
-Ieneral had deoided that certain
pamphlets prepared hy Mr. AtkinBon
be taken from tbe mails to Manila.
He said he had received no direct communication from Washington about
the matter. He explained that the
documents were compilations of facts
and figures taken from the debates iu
ibe National Houso and Senate, nnd
calling attention to points overlooked
in debate "By action of Senate" Mr.
Atkinson continued, "These compilations were published as Senate documents nnd thev are now public documents of the United States. Therefore
any action taken towards keeping
them out of the mails would imply
that Congressional and official documents of the United States aro unsuitable to be sent to officers of tlie volunteer regiments now in Manila, whose
term of service has expired or shortly
will, nnd whose return to this country
is demanded by officials of certain
states, who say tbat tho men are entitled tn discharge" Mr. Atkinson
said ho had sent copies of these documents to Admiral Dewey, President
Schurman, Professor Worcester, General Otis, General Lawton, General
Miller, and two copies to the corro
spondeut of a New York weekly.
If yon see it in Tho Miner's  Special
Kiiotenav Number it will be true.

tbe conclusion that he wns hopelessly
insane, and on their recommendation
be was committed to the asylum hy
Judge Kichardson, says tho Spokane
Chronicle.
Bellairs was more than visually talk
ntivo tbis morning and it was with
difficulty that the dot tors could keep
him still lone enongh to answer their
questions. Hn had much to say about
his experiences as a raining promoter, and claimed that be was tho
man who made Johannesburg, and
said be cleared $125,000 ill the last six
days hn was J there. Ho also claimed
that be was the first man to bring tbe
Cripple Creek mines before the 'pnli-
. lie, and also that be bad developed
some of tbe leading mining properties
in Wales.
Bellairs handled tho names of prominent men all over the world aud
claimed nn intimate aoqnaiutanoe
with kings, princes and emperors galore. Thinking to catch him. Dr.
Sera pin asked him if he know the Emperor of China, tn which Bellairs
replied :
"Know him? Of course I know

DEDICATION BY
ALLIED SOCIETIES
Continued From Page l.
soon the hull room was converted into
n maze of dancers, Thero wero many
people present and thn capacity of the
spacious ball was taxed to tho uttermost. Tbe floor was good and Herr
Bteiner's orchestra excellent, everything going off without a hitch. A
most excellent, supper awaited the
dancers in another room. A long
bullet skirted the walls, prettily decorated with flowers and plauts and
loaded down with every kind of delicacy one's most fastidious partner
could desire.
The arrangements hero, as every
where else were excellent, nnd the
committee deserves the utmost credit
for lheir painstaking and successful
efforts to promoto the enployment of
the guests. Tho ceremonies which
preceded the hall marked the occasion
its an unique one, and the dance wns in
every way worthy of it. The fun was
kept up until a late hour, and the verdict of everyone wus that the i'nuction
wus a great and glorious success.
The bull, however, wns not the only
moans of amusement provided. The
oommittee, remembering thut, there
are many men who nre not very fond
of dancing all night, though their women folk are usually enthusiasts, threw
open the lodge room to finite who pre-
it'rred not to dunce. There certain
grave and le.'croml seniors fought
the ball room battles of their youth
over again, while other non.dancers
indulged in various social games until
such tune as thoir ladies were ready
to go home.
