SOMETHING TO OPEN
TIE EYES OE EUROPE
Great  Britain's   Extensive
���     Naval Programme.
INCREASE ALL' ROUND
Tbe First Lord of  the   Admiralty   Ex
plains  tho Government's  Intentions to the Ootmnons*
London, March 9.��� Introducing   tho
mivy estimates in tho Houso of Com-
iiious today the first Lord of tha Ad
mirslty, Bight Hon. George J. Gos-
clien.said thai never had the estimates
been submitted under more unique
circunistuiices. Ahead -was the conference for international disarmament,
while behind were the iueidents of
lust November,and when a comparison
of the naval strength of various countries was in everybody's mouth, the
most striking confidence was shown in
Briiish p;e..areduess to meet all emergencies.
Tho continental powers, he further
suid, were disturbed by the allegations
tbat (irest Britain was preparing
with a particular purpose for aggres-
livo action, but tho idea had never entered the minds of the Government.
II. thou proceeded to detail tbe naval
programme.
Mr. Go.chen said Her Majesty's
Govornm.nt proposed to make Wei-
H.i-Wei a secondary naval base, point
ii'U ont that it would he a most valuable anchorage aud of greatest importance in any operation, in Chinese
waters, aud adding it was proposed
to expend ��1,1100,000 en W^Hal-Wei
during tho present year and ��1,500,000
next year.
He said the personuol of the navy
forth, coming year would be nicronsed
by 4,250 men totaling 110,004 at a cost
of ��7,474,000.
Comparing the pay of per.onnel, Mr.
Goschen .aid that while Gieat Britain
paid ��7,000,000, and France, ��3,000, ���
000, Russia only paid ��446,000. He
could not understand how that was,
but that was all the estimates roveal-
cd. Referring to ship building he said
the coming programme bad been
framed after consideration of tho programme, of the other powers. A
study of these programmes, he pointed
out, was not reassuring. The United
States, Russia, Franoe, Japan, Italy
and Germany had nnd.r construction
685,000 ton. of warthips, or 225 tons
more than waB contemplated in the
preient estimate., therefore, this had
forced th. Government to draw up a
programme.     Excluding

PROCEEDINGS FAILED,
David Pelkier Fought Extradition and
Won His Case.
Lethbridgo, N. W. T., March 9.���
An interesting oase was oonolufled here
today. David Pelkier, a former citizen of Lethbridge, was arrested re-
contly charged with burning, in April
last in Bolt.,Montana, a building which
cost 1860,000 helonging to tho Anaconda Oopper Mining Oo, Tho object
of Iho arrest was to extradite the pris-
oner, and the caso was argued before
Judge Rouleau and an extradition
commissioner* Mr. Qormlev appeared
for tbo Btate of Montana, together
with Mr. Oonybeare, y. 0.. of Loth-
bridge, Mr. Hurris, of MacLeod, defending the prisoner,
The oommissionor gave a lengthy
summary of the case and finally discharged tho prisoner, chiefly upon
tho following grounds:
Tho prosecution failed to show that
the charge was laid by the Slate of
Montana, uo deloeti wus proved, and
there was a lack of important evidence
to show tbat there was a good probable cause of his guilt, the most damaging evidence having been given by a
woman of no acknowledged religion
aud uo corroboration.

St. Seholnstique, Que., March 9���

the double execution of Cordelia Viau
and Sam Parslow, for the murder iu
Nov. 1807, of Isadore Poirier, the husband of the woman. Tta.y will hnug

then returned to confinement.
A BIG  SENSATION.
last
year', supplemental programme, it
provided for two ironclads, two armored cruisers aud three smaller cruisors,
of a tpecially high speed. The money
required therefore for the coming financial year was ��550,000 and the total
under the ship building vote included
the liabilities for the last year's original and .upplementary programmes
would be ��12,817,000, au increase of
over ��2,000,000. Th. total estimates
were ��26,594,000 for armament. Mr.
Goschen asked an increase of ��161,000,
cbeifly for tho construction of guns,
but also for more ammunition for
practice, which, he asserted, was a
matter of euormouB importance, ns
shown by tho late war. After speaking of the necessity for an increased
shipbuilding vote, he .aid these were
lhe votes required by the presont situation, but, he added, "would that the
action of other nation, resulting from
the coming international conference,
could make it possible for us to diminish or modify the programmes,
while of course, maintaining our
standard and relative position." Mr.
Goschen then answered, in behalf of
Her Majesty's Government,thnt if the
other great naval power, were prepared to diminish their programmes,
Great Britain was prepared to diminish her programme. But if the Czar's
hope, wore not realized, the programme
would have to stand and Mr. Goschen
expressed th. hope that those who were
proposing to attacck the countrv's expenditure, would not attempt'ta dissuade the people from bearing the taxation necessary to carry on the duties
of th. Empire. In conclusion the First
Lord of the Admiralty, said the estimate, were "simply the embodiment
of the feelings of a peaoe loving, determined nation.''    (Cheers.)
Mr. Goschen emphasi.ed th. purely
cefensive objects of naval increase, but
said thnt in view of construction by
h.r rivals of fast oruisers, with the
avewed purpose of preying upon British commerce nnd Great Britain's food
8��Pply in the event of war, England
was forced to build five new outsets,

Extraordinary Conduct of a
Regiment of Negroes.
MILITIA   CALLED   OUT
After Muster Out They Pour Pusilades
from Revolvers Upon Inno-
feusive Citizens,
Atlanta, Ga., March 11.-The Tenth
Iinmones (negroes), Colonel Jones,
who were mustered out nt Macon yesterday, began to show their ill-temper
as soon as the train bearing them began to move out of Macon Producing
revolvers and other arms, whioh they
iu some way managed to keep with
them, they began firing from the win
dows. Bullets flew in every direction
as the train sped on Passongcrs were
compello I to seek safety. Unluckily.
Will Goodyear, a 16 year-old white
boy, was shot in the arm. As tho train
passed the various stations ou the road
the riol ing wns renewed, shots beiug
lired from thn train at ibe people who
wero on the platforms fo see the
train no by. At Griffin, where the
llrst section of the train stopped, occurred tbii most serious trouble of the
day. The regiment enmo ovor tho Central of Geoigia Railroad in three sections. Wben Ihe tram .topped at
Griffin, tbe negroes, who by this time
nml filled up ou whiskey, began firing
their pistols and yelling like Indians
Over 200 shots were llred aud the police v. ere powerless to resist. Tbe oity
vras at tbo mercy ot nogroo-i, who kepi
up a   ftZHlIsdfl of shorn until the   train
carried them beyoud the city limits
Jews of Ihe outrageous eonduci spread
rapidly over Griffin and it was determined that the noxt section of the reg
imeut should le held in cheek.
Mayor Davis telephoned to Governor
Candle*, asking him to order out the
I Irlffin rifles. The Governor soot word
he would consult the authorities and
instruct him in a few minutes. The
mayor tben ordered out the company
ou his own responsibility, as thore wai*

five rounds of ammunition, and under
command of Lieutenant David inarched
to the depot. In addition to 'he mil
itia the mayor and Sheriff Morris deputized nearly 100 citizens to assist tho
police in preserving the peaco and protecting the city. When the second sec-
r on came in sight, above the roar of
the train could be heard the rattle of
firearms, which wero being discharged
indiscriminately. When tba train came
to a standstill the negroes saw 200
heavily armed men, who commanded
them to ktep quiet. The negroes were
awed, nnd with few exceptions were
as docile as Iambi. To those who
proved fractious cracked how's were
administered. When Iho train pulled
out from the depot tbo negroes thought
thoy were out of roach of Iho citizens
and began firing at tbe houses. At tbe
fir.t shot a volley was poured into the
iraiu by the citizens aud militia.
Goorgo Ageo, a trainman, was fatally
shot in the abdomen aud one negro
slightly wounded.
Thero was no trouble   in Atlanta,   as
tbe police were prepared for them.

COMMEMORATION SERVICES.
Some oi tho London Papers Regard the
Crisis as a Grave One and Think
War ii Inevitable*
i Miu Ohwany loan oontraot crisis has
been nuiloably settled by a direot ex-
> change ot views between tbe British
i and Russian Governments, The Rus-
siuii assurances an* completely satisfactory, The whole dilllcully is
ended, und tho two Governments am
arranging a scheme by which their relations in ihe Fm- East may be permanently regulated."
London, March il. ���The opinion of
the press regarding the situation iu
China, is rot unanimous. Some of
the newspapers make no comment ou
the subject.
Tbo Standard, a leading Conservative organ, with its ineradicable Rus-
sopnobe bias, congratulates Lord Salisbury on bis uncompromising firmness
and rejoices that he is determined to
vindicate British interests. It, is
said that unless the hiut of retributory
measures is a mere brutura fnlineu, it
must be inferred that Minister McDonald's ultimatum will be bo followed by
somcthiug stronger thau words if the
occasion arises, but the Tsnng Li Ya-
uien has not often refused u British
demand wheu it believed it was mado
iu earnest and it is not likely to do so
in this instance. The paper adds:
"It is useless to disguise the truth.
Our difficulties with the Tsuiig Li
Yamen are mainly tine to the certain
coercion of Russia, who is engaged in
what seems to be the deliberate policy
of rendering herself supreme in
Northern China and attempting to exclude Great Britain therefrom. The
real question is whether the time has
not come for some definite settlement
wi-deh will end this process. Russian
initiative has led Co that scramble for
China which it was the avowed policy
of Great Britain, if possible, to pre-
rent. Partition is actually taking
place under our eyes."
The paper refers to the Italian and
Belgian demands and declares that
Japan is also keenly watching, but
ihe key of tbe situation is in our
bauds. The other powers will be ready
to follow our lead. It is necessary
lor all the powers interested to come
to an agreement respecting the future
of China. The issue has been avoided
chiefly because of natural reluctance
to bring two great world empires into
direct conflict, possibly revealing irre-
conoiliable antagonism ; but formidable
as thnt danger may be, it will ouly
gather intensity hy postponement.
The Graphic adheres to belief tnnt
an amicable arrangement will result
from the negotiaions which it says, it
knows have been resumed. It says:
"We are disposed to meet Russia
frankly, fairly and even generously on
tbe Manuhurian question. A little
frankness on both sides is all that is
needed to arrive at an understanding. "
lhe Graphic contends that there is
no determined British hostility to
Russian aspirations in Manchuria,
although that belief has been largely
fostered by the Talien Wan incident
and more rocently by the speeches of
Lord Charles Beresford, who was erroneously regarded as having beeu in -
misted with a Government mission."
The Chronicle thinks it will bo hard
to sketch in a few words a more
threatening situation than that presented by Minist r McDonald's ultimatum. It declares that European powers, ever since Germany's descent upon Kiaehau Bay, have been playing a
shameless gamo of grab. Tho United
Stales is tbo only nation that bus not
ttkou part in the game. If nations jon-
earned do not confer betimes and arrive at a reasonable ami stable understanding, there will be war sooner or
later. The paper calls ou Parliament
It) compel Lord Salisbury to give an
account of tbo British policy.

Paris, March 9.���Tho Journal says:
"All of the powers have established

London, March II. ���In Iho Hous) of
Oommons, replying to a question on
the subject, the Parliamentary Seore-

Majesty's Government had not modified its undertaking to support China
against any power committing aggression in China, because the latter had
granted British subjects permission to
make or support a railroad or publio
work, but, bo added, the Government
did not anticipate that question of
tbis description would ariso with re-
Hpeot to the British contract for the
Northern Railroads. The foregoing
question and answer arose from the
Russian pretest against the British
rnilroad contract, and the statement of
the British minister at Pekin. Sir
Claude li, McDonald, that any attempt
to repudiate tbe contract would be regarded as a breach of faith, meriting
retributive measures. At the same
time he recalled Lord Salisbury's assurance, of support for China if another power should attempt to force
her to repudiate the contract.

THE SAMPLING WORKS.
A Frenchman has beon writing to
The London Outlook to say that iu
Pranoe tbey are told it takoa u lifetime to understand English ways,
"and then yon don't understand them
after all." The criticism was provoked by his interview -with three
soldiers and a sailor, whom he took
to be Aulgo Saxons, but who, on in -
quiry, repudiated th. definition, one
Haying be was an Irishman, another
a Scotsman, the third a Welshman,
and the fourth n Britisher, None
were Anglo-Saxons, He ha. yiven
up the study of the English,
CURRENT (VMMENT.
Thero nre two sides to every question, nnd it often happens that one is
good only until the other is presented,
it may be that the side of tho sampling
question given in our columns yesterday is capable of very material modification, and that wheu the whole facts are
presented the Canadian Pacific Company will appenr to better advantage
than it does just now. At present the
situation is this: Mr. McDowell is
aaxious to establish sampling works in
Nelson. To do this h. requires to be
convenient to the railways; not to
one railway, but to both, or to all if
there were more of them. For he cannot carry on business without ores,
aud the ores will have to be carried
over the railways. He cannot confine
himself to those that mny be shipped
ovor the one road ; he wants patronage
from both. There is one site tbat
would suit him admirably, but to give
him all the accommodation necessary
he requires a strip eight feet wide by
one hundred and twenty-five long thai
is owned by the Canadian Pacific Company. It is several weeks since Mr.
MoDowell began negotiating for the
property. Ho hnd uo trouble iu arranging with the Government, who
own the forty feot, but there has been
uothing but procrastination in respect
to the eight feet; he cannot get tbe
Company or those who represent them
to ssy what they will do.
That is the situation, so far nt least
as the public have been informed of
it. What it is taken to mean is that
the Company are determined to drive
Mr. MoDowell into the purchase of a
site that will coufine his patronage to
ores shipped over their road or to
drive him out of Nelson entirely. As
we say, this may be capable of modification; the Company may be able to
put a different face on it, to give it a
less repulsive complexion. But it is
for the Company to do that, not for
others to seek explanations or excuses
for tbera. At present it is ou the defensive ; it is in its old and familiar
attitude of greed and grab. Ruther
than consent to a site that would enable Mr. McDowell to do business
with another road, tbey nre willing to
deprive Nelson of this valu* ble industry. Rather than share with a competitor, thoy will deal a vicious blow
at tht interests of the Oity. If this is
not a reasonable view to take of the
situation as it preseuts itself today,
it ia for the Company to speak out und
.how the contrary.
It is the reputation for such acts as
this, deserved or undeserved, that has
done so much to render the Company unpopular. Every possible interest must be made to bend to theirs;
either that or general smash is and
has been their policy. Nelson i. a
growiug, ambitious town. It cuu be
made the industrial as certainly as it
already is the commercial centre of
Southern British Columbia. It ought
to be on the best possible terms with
the great Canadian railway that is
more to it thau all other railways
that are likely to tap it for many
year, to come, and it is anxious that
it should be. Nothing would please
Nelson more thau to work helpfully
and harmoniously with the Canadian
Pacifio Railway. If it grows as it expects it will be a source of very
large revenue to tbe Company, and the
Compuny hnve it in their power to do
much to help or mar its future. The
interests of both are sufficiently akiu
to make it eminently desirable that
the two should walk together hand
in hand, the oue helping the other.
But here is a ease in which the insane
jealousy of a rival threatens to deprive the city of au important Industry, the Company preferring to lose
their share of the trade it would create rather than have another
share of it to go tn a competitor. We
should be glad for the Company's
sake if they can explain away this
xcoediugly discreditable aspect of
tho situation, and glad for the City's
sake and their owu if it should prove
an   entire  misapprehension   and thnt
a Hen National Poller,
Canadians have at the present moment a rare opportunity of enforcing
a uew National Policy affecting products which are more truly native
pioducts than even those of the farm or
the orchard. In these we have rivals
everywhere, but iu white pine, or
pulp wood, iu nickel, in lend, we have
commodities in which we enjoy something of the nature of a complete
or purtiul monopoly. We were quite
willing to turn these into the continental volume of exchange, but as this
lins beeu vetoed through no fault of
ours tho next movement must be to
make the verv most possible out of
the advantages that we possess in this
respect.���Toronto Globe.
Output   Kpccnlnllou.
The Hon. Mr. Cotton's statement in
tbe course of bis Rudgot Speech, that
the aggregate copper, gold, silver and
lead output of the Province Inst year
will, as indicated by the Government
returns, show an increase on 1H07 of
two Dcr ceut only ia value, will cause
some disappointment hero and elsewhere, as wo all uuiteipated a considerably larger growth of output values.
According to Mr. Cotton's advance
estimate, the gold, silver, lead, aud
copper yield of British Columbia in
1898 will be in the neighborhood of
and probably somewhat exceed $7,720,-
000. The result is attributable to a
somewhat lessened output of the Slocan silver-lead country, the development of whieh suffered early last
year rather considerably by the Yukon
excitement, which temporarily tempted uway from the richest silver country
In our Province and one of the richest
silver count y in our Province aud
one of the richest in the world, some
oapital and large numbers of workers.'
Already, however, there are indications that tho Slocan output will this
year increase very considerably on
I MIT, the value of tho yield of the
lirst six weeks of 1899 being estimated
at nearly half a million dollars. ���B.

Some scoffer, provoked by the paternal nature of curfew legislation iu
Kokoma, Indiana, proposed lhe following clause. With the unexpected result that it was accepted in earnest
and passed into law :
"It is further provided that when
a child comes home at the prescribed
hour and finds its mother not present
lo hear its prayers and put it to bod it
shall report such dereliction to the
Mayor of the city, whose duty it shall
be to search for the absent mother until found, and if it should be shown
that the mother was not on au errand
of necessity or mercy it shall be the
duty of the Mayor to administer a reprimand to said mother. "���Ex.

Upon motion of Mr. Hnolmnan, Aid.
Flotohor waa toted to tho chair and
������iimmiieo-1 the purpose of the nieetiiiK,
the following letter lining rend from
Mi*  MoDowell:
lo the Secretary Of  the   South Kootenay Board of Trade, Nelwm. B. 0.
1 ear Sir:���I have heen In Nelson for
sometime for tbe purpon of furthering
the building of a sampling works at
this point, It. is mit'dlis* for mo to
ptiint out to the members of the Hoard
of Trade, the benefits that would he
derived to the olty from the establishment of such an enterprise in your
midst. I have secured every enoour-
agement from the oltlsens generally,
in the matter; but it would strengthen
my hands materially nnd give great
���issistance if hy a resolution passed nt
the meeting of tho Board tonight it
was shown thnt I had the moral sup-
pott of suoh a representative body.
The site whioh will alone answer
my purpose, is one adjacent to the
trnokB of tho 0, P. R. aud N. & F. S.
Go's. I am only asking from the Oity
exempt iou from taxation, and I seek
from the railway companies reasonable freight rates and convenient
switching facilities. I am ready to
buy ut a fair figure any land that
may be required, and have ample oapital to proceed with the works if no
obstacles ore placed in my wny. If in
addition to passing a resolution, you
could appoint a oommittoeof the Board
to assist iu carrying out the resolution.
I would deem it a great favor. Trusting that my request will receive favorable consideration at your hands,
I remain yours truly.
(���). W. M'DOWELL.
Considerable discussion followed the
tending of the letter. It wns pointed
out by Aid. Boer that Mr. McDowell
had personally done, or claimed to
havo done, all iu his power to secure
the concessions asked for. He hud
never beeu able to get assurances that
the 0. P. R. would do any th iug nml
au Mr. Marpole, supei'lnteiwUutt of tbo
Pacific Division of Jthn 0. P. R., was
in town it would be advisable to aot
at once io that the matter could he
taken up with Mr. Marpole.
In line with this Mr. Maodonald
offered the following resolution, seconded hy Aid. Beer:
That, in the opinion of the South
Kooteuay Board of Trade, the onfall
lishment of sampling works at the
Oity of Nelson would bo of material
benefit not only to the City of Nelson,
but to the Kootenay District, nnd that
the City Council should prepare a bylaw and submit the same to lhe electors, exempting such works from taxation.
J This board is further of the opinion
that the railway companies running
into Nelson should assist such enterprise by granting reasonable freight
rates aud convenient switching facilities, aud by selling or leasing such
lauds as may be necessary, at a fair
price.
After a short discussion tbe resolution was put aud carried without a
dissenting voice.
Mr. Macdouald mentioned tho request
of Mr. McDowell that a committee
from the Board of Trade be appointed
to wait upon the railroad officials and
stiggosted that such be dono. A motion to this effeot was made hy Mr.
Turner, the names suggested being
Messrs. Beer, Kydd and Kelly. The
motion prevailed.
Tho sampling works question settled,
Mr. Macdouald ga.*o uotico that at the
next meeting of the Board he would
introduce a motion advocating increas
ed duty on lead aud lead products imported into Canada, "thus encouraging the smelting and mining industries
of tho Dominion, and that copies of
the resolution he sont to the Premier
of Canada, the Hon. Mr. Fielding and
Hewitt Bostook, Esq."
Mr. John A. Tumor presented a
communication from Mr. O. M.Rosen-
dale, asking the support of the Board
of Trade iu his efforts to secure the
position of British Columbia representative at the mineral exhibit at Paris
in 1900. The letter was laid over until tho regular meeting on Monday
night.

Nelson citizens are liable to have
some definite news In a verv few days
iu regard to the construction of the
Crow's Nest Pass line from Kootonay
Landing into Nolson. Last night Mr.
R Marpole, superintendent of the Pa
oillc Division of the 0. P. R , arrived
in Nelson uud tomorrow, Mr. William Whyte, general manager ot the
0. P. R wost of Port William, will
be here. Mr. Marpole is here for the
purpose of mooting Mr. Whyte and it
is generally believed that Mr. Whyte
will bring good nows in regard to tho
Crow's Nest Lino. Ho has recenr.lv
been in Montreal conferring with the
other officials of the road. Seen by a
Miner reporter last night, Mr. Marpole acknowledged ho was here to meet
Mr. Whyte but professed ignorance of
anything in oon"eotion with the extension of the Orow's Nest Road. He
did admit, however, that Mr. Whyte
would probably know something in regard to it.
Asked in regard to Mr. McDowell's
request for a site for sampling works,
Mr. Marpole said he would look over
the ground nnd fully consider the matter today and would also oonfer with
Mr. Whyte upon his arrival. His reply
to Mr. MoDowell would then he made.
Mr. Marpole takes exception to a
statement appearing in yesterday's
Miner to the effect that a reply tn Mr.
MoDowell in regard to the Ri sehery
site was delayed from two months.
As a Blatter of fact, Mr. Marpole says,
the request was grunted by him within four hours afte>- the matter was li id
before him by Mr. Beasley and im
mediately made known to Mr. McDowell.
"Thore nre two sides to every question, "said Mr. Mai polo. "The C.
P. R. must ho careful of ils right-of-

matters now lay. We uro perfectly
willing to oblige Mr. MeDnwell if we

Paris next yoar has stimulated many
to learn tho language.
Tho prospects are that tho ice will
bo in good condition at tho Crystal
rink for tho hockey match, Slocan
Oity vs. Nelsou. This will be the last
game of tho season and will no doubt
draw a large crowd. The Hall Mines
smeller band will discourse sweet
music during the progress ot the game
and for skaters afterwards.
Owing to the leakage from the roof
of the Crystal skating rink caused by
the extreme warm weather, the rink
has been closed for the last few days
hut the ice is now in excellent condition and thore is plenty of it. Today
the rink will be open as usual. A
curling match is being arranged between two local rinks to take plaoe tonight.
Yesterday wns a record breakiug
day for the 0, P. R. freight department iu Nelson. Within two hours iiO
cars of freight arrived and 80 left the
Oity. Th two barges traveled together
from Kootenay Landing, discharged
15 cars each and taking 16 others left
again for the Landing. Tho incoming
cars wero loaded chiefly with coal
and coke. The Hall Minos smelter is
laying in a large supply of coke at
present.
A very patient body of men is the
Nelson Oompany, South Kootonay
Rifles. They have been industriously
drilling for a vear and yet thero is no
sign of the Government forwarding
tho uniforms. In fact the Government has manifested no interest whatever in the corps here or those iu the
other Kootenay towns. Yet the members stick faithfully at the work 111
tho hope that they will be rewarded���
ut least iu tho hereafter.
This afternoon the last lecture will
be giveu   aud   the School of   Cookery
will be a thing of the past. It will
lie a   special   lecture   on candies,   the
admittance fee being fixed at iio cents*
The subject  is   one   that,   should draw
a good  attendnuoe.   The  sohool   has
ho.*n successful here and Miss l.iving-
stonn has liinde many friend- who hope
that her first nniv not ho her lust
visit to Nelson, Yesterday's lecture
was well attended;
T O. Proctor brought to Nelson
from Kll-o on Wednesday a very fine
mountain sheep's head which ho is
having mounted, It was shot liy one
of Mr. Proctor's employes a few days
ago anil Mr Procter's friends are on -
delivering to create the impression Mint
it was shot, hv Mr. Proctor himself.
This impression Mr. Proctor is at
tempting to neither palliate nor
deny. If cornered hor acknowledges
his man shot, it. OtherwifO ho says
as little as possible.

A correspondent of the Toronto
Globe, Mr. 1). Sponcer, of Brantford,
bas been making a tour of British Columbia. Some of his impressions are
locally interesting:
From the coast I proceeded to the
Kootenays. One must visit these in
order to have a proper conception of
aud really appreciate their importance.
The journey back from Vancouver
to Bevelstok'e in the Canadian route
at present to tho Kootenays, and
takes about 35 hours to Rossland.
When the three sections of tbe Crow's
Nest Pass road are completed the journey will be made in about thirteen
hours, and will open up a very new
and a very important part of the Proviuce. rich in mineral, coal and some
tanning. Towns are already growing up in tho Boundary at a rapid
rate. But I go back to Arrowhead,
at the top of Arrow Lake, and south
of Revelstoke. Here on the left is a
wide area kuowu as the rjardeau-Dun-
can District, rich in gold, silver, copper and lead, developing in a most extraordinary way. At present there
aro no railroads in this rsgion. They
are coming, however, and in the
near future. Both the C. P. R. and
G. N. R. have surveyed lines and are
under obligation to get in this year
Many thousands of tons of ore are
waiting to be carried to tbe smelters.
Tbe opinion of many experts is
that tbis part of the country is richer
than the Rossland camp. Certainly
the indications, it assays be accurate,
aro in tbat direction. Thompson's
Landing, called also Evansport, Trout
Lake City and Ferguson ure yet to be
populous places. Other sites are surveyed, and must, as tbe people come
in, become similar centres of trade to
those already established, The yreat-
est confidence prevails respecting
this section of country. I would advise Investors to kewp their eye upou
it, and business men also. Th* navigable Duncan River and the Kooteuay
and Arrow Lakes are at present the
only means of transportation to any
distance. Government roads nnd
trails, companies' roads and united
methods of travel exist, and the plan
is, I was told, that if the railways do
not come in tlii*i summer a number
of companies will combine and build
a temporary road to the river or lake
Of course it will pay to do it. (July
let there be patience exercised in re-
gnrrt to the development and dividends, and it will most assuredly be
rewarded.
Going further south one comes to
the middle district of the Kootenays.
called the Slocan. Hera on huge
ranges exist some of the best mines
in British Columbia, situated between
the Kooteuay and Arrow Lukes. Beginning with Nakusp on Arrow Lnks.
then Silverton, New Denver, Slocan
City, Sandon, Whitewater, Kasl",
Slocan City, Sandon, Kaslo and Ainsworth are all miiiiug centres. Wealth
and wickedness are found here. Open
townisui is tho order of the day in
some places. Temptations are many.
Missionaries and moral reformers
aro much needed. The churches have
a bard Struggle, and the results aro
mighty small, not because Cod is not
stronger than man, or the church superior to the world, but because of
unbelief. Going still further south
to Nelson, one begins to feel liko again
seeing human life in a decent dress.
Nelson is by far tho superior city of
the Kootenays. As a commercial and
residential centre it will exercise a
large influence. Many superior people
live here. The houses are well built,
the streets aro being put into good order, largo busiuess   blocks  have  beeu
