about seven inches in width. Messrs.
Shannon & MoQIlvray are now developing tbe ledge and are in a quandary
as to whether tbey will sell the property or woik it themselves. In

Cranston had reason to think that
these shafts did uot tap the main

Draft of Agreement Abroga
ting the Glayton-Bulwer
Chronicle Calls Salisbury In
different and Lansdowne
London, Oct. a.���Tlie Washington
coirespondent of the Daily Chronicle
gives the alleged substance of a provisional canal treaty abrogating the
Clayton-Bnlwei treaty. Cor_mo:iting
editorially upon these advices the
Daily Chronicle says: "Englishmen
will be staitlcd to learn that wo have
abandoned our rights under the
Ciayton-IIiiliver treaty and Surrendered every disputed point without any
compensation. Tho new treaty is
apparently another instance of Lord
Salisbury's placid indifference und
Lord Lansdowne's impulsive generosity. Il is said that the piesident of
the United States will recommend its
adoptiun by the senate. Doubtless
Gieat llritain will agreo to it.
Although it leaves us nothing at all
it will have the advantage of getting
rid uf all outstanding grievance with
the United Stntes."

He Takes up Numerous Matters With the Ministers
at Ottawa.
No Additional  Member for
Yale or Senator Just at
When the members of the cabinet
(jot through discussing with W. A.
(Inlliher, M. P., who returned from
Oilawa on Sunday evening, the mat
ters he brought to their attention
thoy must have realised that the constituency of Yale-Kootenuy-Cariboo is
of sufficient importance and has
enough diversified intorosts to be
worthy of three or four representatives, rather than one ns at present.
Speaking of redistribution Mr.
Galliher laid lhat it was tho general
impression among mombers of the
house, though be had not discussed
the matter with any of tho ministers,
that a redistribution bill, rendered
necessary by tho census returns,would
be passed at noxt session of the house.
This would not, however, nienn im-
medate increasod representation, ns
lhe usunl practice is for the sitting
member to retain his sent during the
life of the parliament to which he
wns elected.
Mr. (Jalliber thinks tbat no steps
will be taken soon to uppuint another
senator for the province. Although il
is the policy of eveiy government to
make the senators representative of
the diffeiont districts, these districts
have no hard and fust boundaries.
Candidates may rest easy for some
months yet.
Among the matters taken up by Mr.
(Jalliber with thc various departments
wns the erection ot lighthouse nt Cape
Horn, tlie point between Crawford
und Pilot Hays on Koclcuay lake. An
appropriate on wns made for this at
last session and Mr. (inlliher got the
promise that ns soon us arrangements
could bo mnde for sumo ono lo take
care of It the ligbtbousn would be
Postal facilities loquiro many
changes in a growing community such
as British Columbia. Mr. Mnllihui
discussed with tho postal department
iiiii advisability of sending tho mail
from (loloen to Windermere twice u
week liereaftoi,taking off the through
mail from Koit Steele to (lolilen. He
also urged putting on a stage oarrying
ninil between Krugors and Princeton,
with pustolfices on the way at lledloy
uud other places. A postofiice nt
Cnmborno in the Lardeau, is also
likely to be established soon.
Mr. Ualliher was gratified to learn
Of the completion of the Ashcroft*
Dawson telegraph line���a large portion of which is in his constituency.
Now poles have been erected for this
line all tho way from Ashcrofl passing tbiougb Barkcrvillo,hence following tho route of the old Dominion
telegraph lino. The poles of the old
lino were badly rolled in places nnd
now the wiros will be removed lo the
now poles nnd the old ones taken
down. An upproprintion wus made
fur a line branch leaving this through
une al lso-Milo House and going lo
CJueinelle Foiks nnd thence to the
llorsclly mine but it is probable this
will not bo constructed this yeur.
As to thu view taken of lhe labor
trouble at Itosulund and the deportation al Ottawu Mr. Oui liber laid the
facts beforo the cabii.ot. At the
lime he left Nelson matters had nol
roncbed the aouto stnge Ihey have now
so thnt no decimation was madu by
the minister of labor of his intention.
Discussing the Alien Labor act, Mr.
(lullilier pointed out that by the
amendment, of iast session the machinery was provided wlieieby locul
parties cculd begin legal action to
enforce tbo penalty but at the same
time the power of deportation rested
in tho attorney-general of Canada,
remained the same ns nnder tiie act of
1S1I7. Tho words of tho stntute are
that the attorney-gunornl of Canada
upon satisfying himself thnt the law
has been violated may order tlie deportation of alien laborers nt the
expense of the parties inducing tbem
to oome. This was dono with railway laborers In tbo Norlbivest last
year and the Kcssland situation
hinges      on     whether  evidence     Is
brought   before  him to   "satisfy him
that the law Is being   violated.''    He
could   not   see   why     the    attorney-
general of Canada should act one way
at one tunc and another   at   anolbei.
Mi. Willhains, an   officer of the labor
department,has been sent to Boss land,
in o doubt to investigate and icpcit on
[what   he   finds     On that report   will
| depend whether deportations will take
place or   not.      Certainly that   matter
must await   thc decision of tne   attorney-general.
As lu proposed cabiuet changes and
representation from Hritish Columbia
he thought the chances of this province were good should any new mon
be taken in as u consequence of Sir
Louis Davies' elevation to tbe Supreme Court bench, but the chances
were uguinst this as Hon. Jas. Sutherland, previously minister without
portfolio, was administering the department of militia, and Dr. Horden
that of marine and fisheries. Hon.
Mr. Mulook, postmaster-general, wur
not in good health but wns not. likely
to retire for some time yet.
He urged upon Mi. Tarte the desirability of having tho plans for the
poBtoflice ohanged so that the examining room would run up another
story and so tbat thero would be an
entrance from Waul street as well as
Vernon street. These matters would
bu considered by tlie department of
works, and though the proposed alterations would cost about ($18,000, be
had good hopes that the changes
would be made. Among other matters
was tho appointment of nn examiner
for master mariners' certificates al
Nelson and the holding oT civil service examinations here.

this had the olteot of bringing out its
beauties and it is a beautiful and
sonoious language when it it is utter*
ed properly. Its eupbonuus and sonorous qualities can of course, be best
appreciated on bearing Henry Irving
recite, for instance, the soliloquy at
the beginning of Richard 111. Tlie
words when uttered by a great reader
like Irvlng'.seem to have form and
substance, encli syllable is distinctly
anil clearly enunciated uud the sentences seem as endmiiig as though cut
from mHrble. In Victoria the graceful and collect manner ID which the
Duko spoke was noticeable and The
Colonist took occasion lo rebuke those
who, through HlTo'ctation caricature
the noble language In almost every
word they utter. It said: ''Victorians
have recently had the opportunity of
hearing tbe King's English 'as she is
spoken'' by gentlemen nnd ladies of
unquestioned position. Is it too much
to hope that hereafter young peuple in
this fair city will not consider it
necessary to cultivate a tune which is
a oroBs between tbe squcsk of a wheel-
baiiow anil sneil of a leghorn in
order tn establish that they be lung to
the true and only aristocracy',1"
Tbe Dominion Iron and Stool company has secured a foothold in the
United States market, and has demonstrated that it is u competitor of the
American plants. Three cargoes of
pig iron, aggregating 2,000 tons, have
been shipped from Sydney, two going
to Boston and oue to llobokea. Other
cargoes ate to follow Twenty thousand tons of the iron have been sold in
Scotland and 5,000 tons of this is on
its way across tbe Atlantic on the
steamer Dunmorc. Whon tbo iron
works are established at Kitchener, in
this province, it will be just as easy
to lind a market for its output at
Pacific coast points, on both sides cf
the ocean, as it is for tlie Dominion
Iron and Steel company to market its
output on botli slides of thc Atlantic.
The St. Paul Pioneer-Press sagely
remarks: It is very questionable
whether the world 'do move'1 after
all. The cause of this skepticism is
the facsimile of the New York Times
of September 18th, 1851, in which
besidea the international yacht races,
elsowbere touched upon, one finds a
long article on the Nicaragua canal,
an editotial on Cuba whioh might
have been written in 18117, quotations
of Erie and of Reading stock, a wail
concerning disorders in Texas winch

There is considerable dissatisfaction
expiessed because tbo Dominion
autboirti.es have made November 88th
Thanksgiving Day. This is the same
duy which the United States observe
as Thanksgiving Day. It has been
the custom in Canada to nave Thanks,
giving llay fall on the same date as in
the United States, but last year there
was a change and il was fixed by proclamation on October IStb, more than
a month earlier than usual. This
wbb because it was pointed out that
the date fixed in the United Stntes
was too late for Canada. Thin year
the government reverted back to the
old date again and it is said that this
was because tlie transportation companies desired the earlier date. If the
people, however, feel that it is more
desirable to have Thanksgiving Duy a
inuutb earlier than it is held in thc
United States their wishes in this
respect should be granted, the trans

in His Commission Leads to
Some Uncertainty.
By iiouie niJans or other confusion
bas crept into the notice in tbe Canada
Gazette oi the appointment of Judge
Loamy to the County court bench.
That notice whioh appeared in the
liazitte of June 22na, leads: "The
Honorable Andrew Leauiy, of Greenwood City, in the County ot Kootenay, j
in tbe Province of Hritish Columbia
ti be judge of the County court of
Kiutenav in the province aforesaid."
A second" notico in the sntno issue an*
nouuies bis appointment as a local
jndge nf tbo Supreme court of British
Columbia, His Honor Judge Forin
,.. the County court judge for Kooto
nay and there bas yet bien little dih-
cnsHion or the appointing an associate
or junioi judge to act with bun. In
designating Greenwood us in Kootonay the department of justice bus
made an error In geography ami no
doubt also in specifying Kootenay as
His judicial district. As the practice
of the eourt now stands Judge Leatny
is entitled to bold court in Kootenay
but not in Yale without the definite
request so to do by Judge Spinks of
that judicial district. VV, A. Galliher, M. P., has brou-M those errors
to tlio nttention of tin) department
and -o doubt they will be *>**ibse
quenfly rectified by amending Jndge
Leauiy'a appointment to read for
County court judge tor Yale district,
as tbe present necessity is for n judge
for tiie southern part of Yule commonly known as lioundaty country.
So far us nan be ascertained hoio
Judge Leatny had never nny intention
of making Nelsou liis place of residence.

.1. 1. Stewart,a trooper of tbo South
African constabulary, has written to a
friend in this citv from ltoit Springs,
South Afrca, under date of August
2ii. Among other things lin says:
"Wn had a very bad rain storm last
night, the lirst of the season. You
talk about your western Btorm, but
thiii was what 1 call a storm. Tbo
rain cumo clown, not in pailfu Is but
in lubl'nls, nnd then tbo tierce wind
and bnil stones as largo as robin's

us hnd been on outpost duty for a

was up to sve us today and he thought
wc wore ull light at looking nftor our

There was some fresh bread on the

were several loaves whicli tlio bear

glances to mean *'Koep still, my
