arising shall   ho   settled   by   peaceful

worst, possible means of settling any
controversy���y-t, in tho 84 yoiu-s that

and all been arranged��� and adjusted
without resort to arms. "

Roaders of Tuesday's Hossland Miner
wore entertained to another vicious
article on tho Canadian Paoifla Company and thoir "mnchinntions. " But
they were hardly treated fairly, for
they ar�� left iu most perplexing i^noi-
ance of the cause of tbe newspaper's
complaint or grievance. There are
some mysterious alluBions to "breaches
of prouiiaes aud tyrannous exwrcisc ot
power." to "(iifsiuiulatum and trick-
ery, to oorruptiou, cajolery, and
ooeroiou-" "We know ns well us they
do," says the nrticle, "the stake for
whioh they are playing and which, if
thty secure, means the grinding of
this Proviuoe under the foot of u despotic aud merciless corporation. Wc
know that they want to Bootbe our peo
plo by such pleasant opiates as they always have, into silence and hollow
dreams,and so induce tho Government
to believe that this Province does not
fear and does not oppose the maehiua
tions of its worst enemy. But tbey
will uot succeed. Tho people of this
country have suffered too much ; they
hays too much to dread from the C.
P, B.," and so on, aud io on. aud so
All this was provoked by thu visit
of Mr. Whyte and Mr. Marpole, with
���whom tbe paper had an interview nnd
to which referenco is made at tho beginning of the nrticle. Thinking to obtain from it the clue to our oontem
porary's acute perturbntion of mind,
���we turn to the interview as published
and ascertain that the ouly two subjects of discussion wero the Trail
branch and the Uosslnud station. The
Trail branch is being improved into a
broad gauge rond, and the Company
have promised to erect a new station
building. The change from narrow
to broad gauge is progressing, and
Mr. Whyte says the work will bo completed as quickly as possible. He gives
a most excellont reason why the Company do not want to delay. Owing to
tbe necessary transfer at Trail, on account of the narrow gauge, the cost of
operating between Boslaud und Hobson
is about five times ns much as for the
same distance ou the main lino. As
to the station, the General Manager
promises it will be worthy of tho city
and ready for occupation by the time
the change of gauge   is completed.
We can ouly gather, therefore, thai
the terriblo "machinations" of the
article are merely the desire of the
Company to escape extra cost by hastening the change of gauge. We do not
know whether the building of a new
station "meaus the grinding of this
Province under the foot ot a despotic
and merciless corporation.'' Porhaps
it does, in which can* Nelson would be
very glad to have some grinding of the
Province on its own account. Altogether tho situation is a puzzling
one. Tho only quite clear thing about
it is that The Hossland Miner has a
bad attack of O. P. H. rabies. Bul
with Heiuze blood in itn veins, perhaps that ii not surp riniug after all.
The end of the plebiscite humbug
has been reached. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
has written a leader of tho prohibition uiovomout that the Government
would uot bo justified iu accopting
tlie prohibition vote as authori or
prohibition legislation. That ends it
It wns a fraud from the beginning. It
was never intended that there should
be prohibition, und tbe plebiscite was
introduced as a means of escape from
au awkward situation.
be been pledging the Government to a
cash subsidy in lieu of the land grant?
For many years it was the policy of
the Dominion to give land in uid of
railways. It did this because it had
plenty of hind uud little niouny. Thnt
is British Columbia's ense. We.Jiave
land, but no money, nnd it,will be
easier on the taxpayers of the Province
if we stick to the originnl bargain. ���
The people are not anxious to burden
tbemielvei with interest on borrowed
money, when they can escape with a
land grant.

Tho Critic, Mr. Henry Hess's
clever Weekly, hns no hope tbnt the
Anglo-American OoininisBion will reassemble It suggests that the British
policy of "eterunl cruwl" has tilled
the American mind with tbe idea of
mastery which will yield nothing.
This is uonseuso. There is no evidence that an arrangement with the
United .Sutton is impossible j and ou the |
other hand, a day has been sot for the
resumption of negotiations, and the
llritiBh Government huvo uninod Lord
Km* irll to take tho place of the luto
Baron Herschell. Prom all that is
known yut wo have aa much reason
to suppose that next Christmas will
not come as to say that the Commission will not resume its sittings.
To The Editor of The Miner:
Sir���Has tho City Counoil lost sight
of the fact that the residents of tho
eastern part of Nelson bays been patiently waiting for thnt nugnst body to
tnko Rome notion long ero this in ro-
gnrd to the removal of the notorious
houses of East Baker stroot to more
obscure quarters, The time is now opportune for attention to be given to the
oft repeated protests that have appeared in Tbe Miner from time to time
bearing upon this question i and if the
authorities persist in maintaining such
rcpbrebcnsible indifference in this
matter,they will suddenly find that an
exasperated and outraged community
will express themselves iu n more cm
pbalic and publio way. East. Baker
street is required for legitimate business pursuits, and I, for one. do not
relish the idea of driving the projectors of brick   blocks to the   west of
Eootenay street, or to the vicinity of
the C P. H station. Move Iho handy
bouses outside the city limits. Move
them now. Let the quest ion be taken
up nt the next council meeting.

An expert who has he*-:i among the
coil Steele mines, savs that Weaver
Greek is geftinK a good share of the
nttentlon of the prospector. True ev-
idence of the fact is that the int*-lli-
(���cut prospector is satlsflefl tn expend
his efforts ill lmril labor for the benefit
of himself and the people of llritish
Columbia ut this point, and that he
finds iu the c.ruukn and gulches the
ear marks of hidden treasures which
bids fair that his hopes will be realized in the fluding of th.* source of
wealth from wheuci came tlnie promises of wealth nml happiness found iu
8\eu twice a | tbe placer diggings of early days. A

The surface ore. in this region is

character ol the ore is a honeycomb
