(SI'l.t'lAI. TO THE 111 \ 1:11.>
Victoria, 11. C., April SO.���The best
judges of the situation here believe
that a crisis is imminent in cabinet
circles. The events in caucus for a
week have been of a character as to
indicate a tension too great to last.
Shrewd observers of affairs predict
that a coalition will bo effected  with-

mid employing epithets in caucus.
Even a concession on the part of
the government on the railway matter, may fail to save the administration, so acute is the situation.

in a few days between the major por-1 held last night. Nothing further

CAMERON   VS.   KIRKWOOD
A   CASE   OF   MORE   TUAN   ORDI-
NRAV INTEREST TO MINING
MEN.
SEVERAL   NICE   POINTS  IN CONNECTION WITH  INTEIU'RSTATION   OP   MINERAL ACT.
Among the mining suits set down
for trial at the forthcoming sittings
of the supreme court at Nelson is that
of Cameron vs. Kirkwood which is of
far more than passing interest to the
mining industry, involving, as it
does, several nice points in conncc
tion with the intrepretation of the
Mineral act. The principal point
arising in the cast has never been
passed upon by the court anil its intrepretation is of the utmost importance to every prospector.
A decision in the suit will involve
the court's passing on the actual
meaning of sub-section E of section 4
of the 1HIIS amendments to the Mineral act, which reads as follows:
"The provincial land surveyor when
surveying a fractional mineral claim,
whether located before or after the
passage of this act, may survey such
claim so that it shall contain,as nearly as possible, all the unojoupled
ground lying between the previously
located mineral claims as described
by the affidavit and by the sketch
plan made by the locator when the
claim was recorded provided that no
side of a mineral claim shall exceed
1,500 feet in length."
Cameron vb. Kirkwood is an action
to adverse the Eda fractional mineral
claim as against tho Bald Mountain
fraction. Tho property concerned .is
under bond to the same people who
aie interested in the Arlington mine
and hence is of value. The ground
was staked lo 1800 by Charles B,
Sinltherlngale and lies between the
Knickerbocker aud Mineral Mountain
claims. Last year the plaintiff staked
ceitain ground also lying between
the claims which Smitlieriiigale had
not Included In the description placed on his slakes. A half Interest In
the E.lu was Hold to K. .1. Kirkwood,
a well known mining man fiom Slocan City, and the action Is taken ns
against him. When the owners of
the Eda sent their surveyor to survey the Eda he took in the ground
covered by the Bald Mountain fine
tion, interpreting the sub-section of
the Mineral act quoted above as
meaning that the locators of the
Eda were entitled to all the vacant
ground between t.lfc Knickerbocker
aud Mineral Mountain claims unoccupied when their location was made.
The plaliuilf's argument on this point
Is that tbe sub-section only gives the
surveyor the right to tuke in ground
outside of the original stakes which
happens to be vacant at the time he
makes the survey. The point is a
nice one and as the decision will constitute a precedent, the progress of
the case is certain to be watched with
considerable interest.
The locatiju of bolli fractions is at
tacked. In connection with the staking of fractions it may be "tated that
une clause of the Mineral act seems to
be comparatively little known among
prospectors, yet it is of sullicient importance to materially atf-ct the validity of a location were the point insisted upon by the courts. The clause
in question reads that the locator
shall place upon his No.lpost,"as full
a description as possible of the land
bounding the fractional claim."
It is probable that not' one prospector in a hundred is aware of the facts
iu this connection, and that a properly arranged location post would not
be found in many days' march
thiough the hills.

Geiinan Emperor Likely to Have
Trouble With Diet.
Berlin, April 20.���It is the wish of
the . emperor that the diet pass the
canal bill. This wish is not likely to
bo fulfilled as the Conservative agrarians still vigorously oppose it. The
empeior and Count Von Buelow seem,
however, to have made up their minds
to stand this shillyshallying no longer
and important changes will surely
arise from this attitude. From Prince
Herbert Bismarck's speeches this week
it is generally supposed that he is preparing to play the role of chief in the
anti-government fronde.
The Nicaragua canal has been described by the German press this
week, which is unanimously of the
opinion that neither Great Britain
nor Germany can tolerate exclusive
control of the cnnitl by the United

the Associated Press that Germany
will in any case interfere with regard
to the meat inspection law, The correspondent further learns upon good
authority that that portion of tlie law
bearing upon the Importers cannot

and probably later, and that part healing on the Inland provision not befoie

Glasgow, April 20.���The  Shamrock

Cincinnati, Ohio, April 20.��� Peculiar weather conditions during the
week have culminated in a rain and
snow storm of almost unprecedented
dimensions, so distributed that a tremendous flood in the Ohio river is im
pending. It is too early yet to predict with accuracy the extent of the
coming flood, but all sigps point to a
stage of water that must bring devastation of a most serious nature all
along the^Ohio river.and its tributaries in Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky. The condition Is something
of a surprise at Cincinnati, because,
although there has heen rain almost
every day in the Week, it was not
heavy enough to create apprehension,
but above Cincinnati, in Kentucky and
West Virginia, flood rains were falling as early as Wednesday, and over a
vast extent of the Ohio river valley
watershed wus Continuous. This
heavy rain served to cause a lise in
the Ohio river. Until this morning
it was rising all the way from Pittsburg to Louisville. Following these
rains came the tremendous snow fall
of last night, which reached from
Canada to the Atlantic, with its western border less than a hundred miles
from Cincinnati. By its mere weight,
and by force of the wind in many
places there wns almost a complete
paralysis of all wire communication
across this snow belt today.
Pittsburg, Pa.r April 20.���The damage done, to the railroad companies
wrought by the storm raging all over
the country is almost inestimable.
There is not one of tbe local railroads
whicli is not suffering from some sort
of trouble���land slides, snow in the
north and west and washouts in the
south and east. The Pennsylvania
and all its divisions and western lines,
the B. A O., the Pittsburg at Lake
Erie, all have the same tale of delayed
trains, tracks covered with earth from
land slides and northern divisions
blocked by snow.
From 12 to 10 inches of snow lies
over eastern Ohio and over the greater
part of western Virginia Bnd eastern
Kentucky. This is supplemented by
heavy rain In the region of the headquarters of the Ohio today. The
weather bureau official is confident
that the rain must cease today, but
without warinei weather tomorrow the
vast snow area will melt and add to
the great volume of water. It is therefore easily possible for a flood of disastrous proportions to sweep down the
Ohlp valley within the next few days.

Matters in the mining industry are
beginning to pick up in the Ainsworth camp. The resumption of
work in the Highlander has had the
effect of restoring confidence in the
camp and if the price of lead should
rise withiu the next mouth or two,
the camp would have one of the liveliest seasons in its history.
Work is now in full swing at tbe
Highlander. Some 12 or 10 men are
engaged in the big tunnel and rapid
progress is being made. It is stated
that the main lead will be reached
within a couple of weeks. The management hus not issued uny statement
as to the result of the diamond drill
boring but report is busy with rumois
us to the outcome, Manager Stevenson is credited with stating that the
borings came into a ledge sixty feet
wide containing much ore of good
qualify, and that further ou another
vein was tapped, lie is also leported
as having stated that his prospect-
work had demonstrated beyond the
peradventure of doubt tbat the leads
in the Ainsworth camp not only went
down, but that they increase in values and that the ore at depth is of
much higher grade than has been en- i
countered in any of the workings up
to tbe present time. The Miner does
not give these reports as authentic,simply endeavoring to reproduce what is
common gossip among the miners and
others   residing in the camp.
At the Highland mine, operated
from Nelson, a small crew of seven
or eight men is employed on development exclusively. The management is
awaiting an improvment in the price
f lead before resuming work on a
producing basis, but it is safe to state
that when the market turns a corner
the Highland will be one of the first
Silver-lead properties to resume shipping. Tlie plant is new and in splendid condition, the mine is well developed and the reserve of ore ample.
At present thu company prefers to
(online   their   attention     to     further
development until conditions alter to
their satisfaction and the Highland
will not have its former complement
of about sixty men until the change
indicated takes place.

A SENSIBLE   SUGGESTION.
A proposition is now before the legislature whicli may revolutionize the
methods of bookkeeping in the offices
of mining recorders. The system now
in use is cumbersorai and an entirely
new sell,.me uf handling records has
been devised mid is under advisement.
Tlie credit of evolving the idea belongs to Edwnrd T, II. Simpkins,
clerk of the supreme court at
Nelson and the adoption of his
plan, which now seems alto-
gclh'i likely, will win foi liiin
an enviable reputation for originality and assiduity in tin' performance of his duties Tlie necessity for
an improvement in the present procedure in recorders' offices is apparent to all who have had occasion to
transact business in the recorder's
office, and this class embraces a large
number in a city situated in the heart
of a great mining district. One great
drawback is that to asoertaln particulars regarding a mineral ptoperty
necessitates a search through half a
dozen books. The complications are
so great that the services of a lawyer
are often required, while it is a prac
tically   hopeless   task   foi one not fa
miliar with the records  to trace titles I one looked,   there   were   openings for
At the Imperial Institute, London,
recently. Lord Strathcona gave a veiy
interesting address on "Canada and
lite.'' He said that not only
was Canada a large country, but her
resources were so great that wc were
only just beginning to realize what
thev must mean to the country in the
future. The industries of the country
had advanced by leaps and bounds.
There was mora in Canada, however,
for many millions more of people and
many millions more of capital; and it
was hoped that both people and capital would soon Mow more in the direction of the Dominion than had hitherto been the case. Their Australian
cousins hud followed the example of
the Canadians in becoming united for
the good of the Empire, and Canada
was sending a special representative,
in tlie person of Mr. Mulock, tlie postmaster general, to take part in tlie
opening of the lirst parliament of the
Commonwealth, They hoped that his
visit might lead to the arrangement
of closer commercial ielations between
the two groups of federated British
colonics. Dealing next with the
misrepresentations from which Canada
had suffered in respect to her climate, lie declared that, as a matter of
fact, Canada hud ono of tne iinest
climates to he found anywhere. What
Canada especially wanted was more
capital and more people. It was as
certain as anything could be that all
the capital needed would be forthcoming, but thev wanted their fellow-
British subjects to share in their prosperity, and to come over aud help
them.    No matter   iu   what direction
offices   of   .on    American   neighbors,
To do this it is necessary that a refinery be established within our own
borders. If ihe profits of tlie industry he as large as reported, we confess
we cannot understand the reason
why private capital has not entered
into the business on this side of the
line. But that is a mutter upon
which the experts are agreed. It is
claimed that government assistance is
necessary. The matter is already receiving the attention of the Dominion
authorities. Probably tbey are wondering what the end of this bounty
business is likely to be and pondering
as to where they shall draw the line
upon applications for state assistance.
The matter cannot rest in its present
stage, however It is clear that the
crisis which has long been foreseen
is upon British Columbia, The p*o-
vincial government should move wi til-
nut delay, gather all the data possible
for the gulden., of the Dominion
government and be prepared to act
itself if necessary. It seems to us
that the demand of a bounty of SU a
ton is a trifle unreasonable all things
conslderd. It might be cheaper to establish a government refinery rather
than submit to arbitrary demands,

or other Information relating to
claims. Mr. Simpkins's system substitutes one large ledger for the half
dozen hooks now used and tlie information relating to claims is tabulated
so succinctly as to appeal lo the intelligence id the ordinary mind. These
, points will appeal strongly to the
hundreds of business and mining men
who annually consult the office re-
Cords. From the standpoint of the
government the suggested scheme hus
many points to commend it. The sub-
sttntion of one book for half a dozen
will materially lighten the duties of
tne clerical stall' und enable recorders
and their assistants to attend to their
duties without frequent interruptions
to assist cullers 111 tracing records. In
the summer season when extra assistance is required under the present system to enable the ollice to keep up
with the work, the new scheme siin-
plilies the procedure to such an extent
thut the ordinary stuff' can readily
keep up witli the work. The result is
a saving to the government under the
head of extra help, which is conservatively estimated at not less than $60,-
(Kin���a feature which will doubtless
appeal strongly to the department of
mines. Ilrielly, the merits ot tbe system proposed by the Nelson clork of
the supreme court, uftur a long study
of the situation may be summed up us
follows: first, the abolition of tlie
present form of record of a mineral
claim, a meaningless writing and
unintelligible to anyone not conversant with the Min. 1 al Act. Tlie substitution therefore of the issuance of
u.certificate of title showing on its
face tlie rights of u free miner in u
certain piece of ground described 1
therein. Second, the record mentioned being done away witli, the record
hooks follow and are replaced by an
abstract   book    Into which   would   be
entered   an   abBtraol   of eaoh  claim,
giving a lollo for ench claim, und Indexed   ooth   under   the name of  the
owner and Ihe naine of the claim.    At
present only the  names of claims are
indexed, making it difficult to ascertain if any particular person is the
owner of mineral property. Third,
the paper kno.vn ns a certificate of
worn is unnecessary and is more often than not destroyed. When an assessment is performed and the record,
ei is satislied by affidavit fil��d, an entry is made in the abstract book under
the new system und the certificate of
work dispensed with, Fourth, the
present method of recording bills of
sule in extension is a useless waste of
lime aud unsafe, Inasmuch as it frequently occurs that errors are made in
copying, thus making a good bill of
sule apparently bud und vice versa,
l'tider the new system, the bill of sale
itself will be lilcd and un entry made
in the  abstract   book,    including   the
names of  ihe  party's  Interest,  the
date of theBttleand the Interest linns-
tbe investment of capital in agriculture, in mines, in the forests, in the
fisheries, and in manufactures. In regard to labor the demand at the present time wus principally for men ivho
were, or wished to be, connected with
agriculture, and for domestic servants. Canada offered to settlers free
grants of 160 acres of land in Manitoba, in the Northwest, and in parts
of Ontario, and in the othei provinces crown lands might be procured
on nominal terms. Everywhere improved farms might he acquired at
reasonable rates, and even the laborer
who went out without much means
migut become the owner of his farm
in the course of a few years. One
weak point in the commercial situation was about to be remedied owing
to an innovation which was arranged by Mr. Chamberlain. So far, although there were commercial attaches and British consuls in foreign countries, whose trade reports were published frequently, nothing had been
done to keep the commercial community informed of the prospects
of trade in Canada and the colonies,
the demand there for Britisli goods,
and tin' opportunities thut exist for
developing an Increased business. An
attempt wus to be made to remedy this
great want in conjunction with the
recent establishment of a Bureau of
commercial    intelligence,   and he wus
sum that the proposal to disseminate
information about tlie trade of the
colonies in the United Kingdom
would receive every consideration and
support in the   outlying   parts of   the
Empire It: the meantime, Canada,
by means of, among other things, tlie
Canadian Pacific railway, the Imperial penny post, the preferential tariff, and her defensive forces, had been
and wus still preparing herself for
the  drawing   closer   together of tlie
bonds which unite British hearts
Wherever they are found.
CURRENT COMMENT
OUR LEAD INDUSTRY.
The situation in tlie lead mining
industry in Hritish Columbia glows
more serious. It is announced that
the American smelt ing company has
reduced the huHis of the settling price
foi lead from S4 to 88.U0, lu New

paying all expenses. 'There is absolutely no competition for the products
of our silver-lead mines now iu the

BritiBh Columbia's Industries. The
American    trust  has   determined to
maintain Ihe present prices for its
products even if it he ncccssury to

FORT TO PUT   ORGANIZATION
ON SUBSTANTIAL BASIS.
PAIR    LAPSTREA.K     BOATS     FOR
'   TRAINING FAST MEN TO BE
ACQUIRED.
The officers of the Nelson Boat club
are making a strong effort to place
the organization on a substantial basis. The particular end to be accomplished at the present time is that of
acquiring a pair of lapstrealc boats fur
training the fast men in the club.
The cost of the craft would be ir. the
neighborhood of 8500, but tho benelit
tc be attained is very great. The
club desiies to train a crew to compete at the annual regatta of the North
Puoific Oarsmen at the coast a few
months heiue. The crew will have
to compete under somewhat of a disadvantage for the members will not
have enough experience in the handling of a shell to stand any chance
of winning. The club will demonstrate the fact that it is alive, however.and will make a stout bid for the
regatta of 1908. Their effort in this
direction will be bacltcd up by the
fact that Nelson has a ..magnificent
stietch of water for racing and the
trip inland will he a novelty for the
oarsmen who have heretofore confined their attention to the coast cities.
From a local standpoint the advertising which the city would obtain will
he valuable besides the consideration
that iv provincial and international
reagtta would bring many outsiders
Into the city. The first step in the
campaign is to procure boats for the
Nelson club which wil". give the members a fair chance of practical training
and it is to be hoped that the club
will be supported in this move.
It is proposed to arrange a spring
regatta for the local rowing men,
which will bo followed by the 1st of
July programme and the annual regatta. These events if properly conducted will do much to interest the
general public in the pastime and
assist in securing for the sport the
popularity it merits.

hou's correspodnent, who seems to
want to say something in which the

understanding. The signature looks
a trilllo like C. McMillan,hut the balance of tbe letter is a deep, dark mystery.
DERIVATION OF GKAPE-NUTS,
Contains Neither Grapes Nor Nuts.
Thought wim applied and experiments conducted for about two years,
seeking to perfect a food easy for the
intestinal digestion and yet make use
of the carbo-hydrates, albumen and
phosphate of potash obtained from the
grains.
Success came, and luckily the scientific food was found to have a most
delicious and delicate sweel. that of
tlie grape sugar to be seen glistening
on the granules.
That suggested the first part of th
now famous name. Tbe last part
"Nuts" is purely fanciful, the compound word Grape-Nuts, being- a coined word, having no actual meaning,
a necessary feature to conform to the
rules of the Patent Ollice on the regis-
tialion of trade-marks. "(Irape-Nuts"
is a duly registered trade mark protecting the most famous food of the

some time and is to be continued for
a total distance of 100 feet. The ore
from the group runs as high as $03
gross, carrying from I per cent to 7
per cent copper in addition to the
silver and lead values. A tramway
and air line from the Coffee creek
compressor are among the features
which the forthcoming season are
likely to see introduced at the properties.
The King Solomon Mines at Woodbury creek have not shut down as
was loportcd. A half dozen of the
men employed at the property quit
work and out of this fact arose Unreport of the shut down. As far as
has Deep learned at Ainsworth no ore
has been encountered in any of the
numerous tunnels on the property.
The King Solomon (Woodbury) has
the distinction, if the gossip of tho
miners from the property is to he
relied upon, of being the only min
ing property in Hritish Columbia
operated through the medium of
spirits. It is maintained that the
work in the mine is laid out by the
sister of the president of tbe company
after emerging from trances. The
company owns 2,000 acres of mineral
land on the creek and has fine buildings, a concentrator and other modern equipment.
by Italy's Inability to assist Germany
in ber lately inaugurated world pol
icy. which the emperor earnestly
[lushes. It is also said the young Italian king harbors little sympathy foi
Germany owing to the influence of bis
education and more recently of his
Slav wife, whose sympathy is altogether Kussian. The leading papers
this week contained articles ou the
subject. The Post says the efforts to
disrupt the harmony of the Driebund
powers arc futile.
The Vossische Zcituug points out
the number of faults committed in the
German foreign policy lately leading
almost to isolation andj mentions in
this connection Great Britain's coquetting with JlussNi and Italy's coquetting with France, M. Delcasse's
trip to St.Petersburg and M. Waldeck
Rousseau's trip   to Verona.
The Krciiz Zcituug wonders why
there is this univeisal hatred against
Germany including that of the United
States as evidenced commercially and
by the frequent hostile attitude of
lie United States towaul Germany in
China. The papei in question points
out that Germany is the only power
which since IsTo has not gone to war
except by joining the other powers in
the   China expedition.
OIL IS KINO.
The Fluid is Taking Place of Coal in
California.
Nanaimo. April 20.��� United States
Consular Agent George L. Schetky,
who recently returned from San Francisco, gives a most pessimistic account
of the condition of the eoal trade
there, lie says all is putting coal ont
of business everywhere except for domestic use. The slightest fluctuation
in the piesent coal prices would he
fatal to the coal industry. The Mai-
ket street railway only lately one of
the largest coal consumers in San
Francisco, is now using oil, as arc-
also the biggest sugar refinery and a
nunibei of the largest industrial concerns in Oakland.
Mr. Schetky says oil wells are being
sunk in every part of the state with
surprising success and oil is so plentiful in Southern California that they
are sprinkling the roads with it instead of water.

GERMAN Politics.
The Great Teutonic Nation   May Soon

Berlin, April 20,���Regarding foreign
politics,   the  sentiment    iu  German
political and official circles is rather
despondent just now. Among the
well informed the Impression prevails
that while the Dretbund. renewal
this time is assuied, Italy, nevertheless, is regarded suspiciously find disagreeable surpi iscs in Italy's fore'gn
policy are now expected in spite of the
Ilriehund. In the face of otlieial denials here it is considered cctlain
that Italy will insist on the alteration of certain pa'ragraps in the Driebund agreement and it is also certain
that Italy's rapproacliiueiit with
France is regarded here unfavorably.
Since the race and religious affinities
between tlie two countries,once a rap~
proachinent is effected, it will work unceasingly Germany on her part is
dissatisfied with Italy because Germany has been a steady loser in the
