Tells What Happened as the
Vessel Sank
INVESTIGATION  ENDED
Captain  Lane   Was  tbe   Only   WitnosB
Yesterday aud There Wus Nothing
New in His Evidence.
The Dominion Governments' Invea
ligation init) Ui" wreek of the steimiet
Ainsworth was concluded yesterday
when Onptain Lone, who was in command of the ill-fated vessel, guvo his
evidenoe, Little thut whs new wuh
elicited nt the iuqniry aud it ia uot
thought that Oapt. Qandin's report
will oonvey anything particularly
/nrtliug. Oapt. (lantlin l-elui-us to
Viotoria todny and will lend his report to the Department at Ottawa.
Oaptaiu Lain) said that he was iu
command of the Oity of Ainsworth
ut the time of the aooidout. "We left
here in the afternoon'' he said, "and
everything wus as usual until we
reached Pilot Bay, The bout made the
usual time until we got opposite Crawford Hay, whon I received word
through the speaking tube, from the
engineer, that the boat was making
wnter. I gave directions to the man
ut tho wheel to head her towards shore
nnd I went below to investigate, 1
fouud suflie.ieiit water in the hold to
-how me that the boat, was in daugor,
,0 I returned to the dock nnd unloaded
about four cords of wood to lighten
hor. This occupied about a minute.
Returning to the hold I fouud thai
a large amount of water was iu and
that the boat was iu very serious
danger. I then directed my attention
to tl.e life boats, after loosening life
preservers which wore held iu nicks.
We had considerable difficulty in freeing the boats from the davits but dually succeeded in getting one launched.
As soon as she struck water a rnsh
was made for her and she tipped over,
throwing as all into the water. I was
in tlie boat as the deok was on too great
a slant to allow me to stand there and
there was nothing else for me to do
When we wont into the water a man
straddled my back and I had great difli-
oulty iu saving myself. When I got
clear I fouud myBelf swimming along
side Donnelly and the two of us got
hold of the life boat and attempted to
right her. It kopt rolling aud we
crawlod on the bottom of it���it was bot
torn upwards. As we could not right
it from the water we sat on the hog
chain and suoceeded in getting her in
position. I held her steady while
two meu bailed her out. At that
time I was aware that some had been
drowned but did not now who or how
many, I was satisfied that the wreck
was not going to Bink any further, and
when we had the boat prepared, we
took ashore as many people as we
could. Probably an hour elapsed before wo could got paddles prepared aud
the boat fixed for a second trip. Wheu
we returned the wreck was as we left
it. A third trip was a made aud
we cleared the boat. We then camped
on the shore until every oue was warmed and dried ont. Myself and Don -
nelly were in the water probably half
an hour. When the meu oould make
the trip I sent a boat over to Pilot
Bay and in due time tbe Kaslo took
us off.
'"While we were on shore" continue 1 tho captain, "the moon came up
and we could see that the wreck was
driftiug nearer shore. It finally benched. We investigated it but found that
we could not make the wreck fast to
the shore as all the lines were under
water. Had we attempted to save any
of the freight wo would havo had to
out a hole iu the side of the houBe and
tliis would have allowed the waves to
rush in and smash everything to
pieces. We might have done something in calm weather, but not with
such a gale blowing. We carried no
marine insurance. Everyone was off
the boat by 11 o'clock. We saved all
that we could from the wreck by pike
poles���passengers, baggage, blankets,
etc Mr. Long's statement that we
made no attempt to save his stuff is
uot true. We might have saved a little
more if we had a diver. All the cargo
was under water.''
Oaptaiu Gaudin asked the witness
(���Viral questions hut nothing muoh
different from tho main htatemont was
elicited.
"This will end the enquiry" said
Oapt. (-iaittlin when Oapt, Lnne finished,and tho court room was speedily
emptied,

ling had paid daily visits to the girl.
;tnd it was for her, in this multiplicity of ber sorrows, thnt tho synipath.\
of many frionds was] most earnestly

that tho physicians would uot* tell him
until ho should be stron ger, of the loss

Oritioizes the Aotiou of the  Souud Press
iu Attackiim* the Propesal of the
Joint High Commission*
Victoria, March 6.���According to
advicos received by the Amour from
Alnskuii ports the peoplo of Dyea aro
more anxious to come under the folds
of tho Union Jack than they aro to
stay with the United States, Tho Dyeu
Press is quite oustpoken for annexation. It sayB: "The excitemont
produced by the proposed report* of the
subcommittee of the Joint Commission, to cede to the Canadians a seaport
ou the head waters of Lynn Canal,
seems to havo provoked a great deal of
interest and opposition, especially at
Seattle. Tho dispatches concerning
the subject indicate that the proposed
coding of the ports of Uvea and Skagway 11 tho Canadians is at an end. At
least, it will remain 'statu quo' until lhe subject is brought before the
Ooutmission, The newspapers of tho
coast aro a unit against such a propt-ai
tion and threaten to oppose the Administration should it countenance
-inch a movement. The wishes of thi
peope iu this 'nock of the woods,1 who
arc diroctlv interested, nre not consulted, aud the opposition offered by the
papers of tho Sound seems to be largely
governed by the opposition of the
steamship anil busiuess men of Seattle
and of tbo cities of the Souud, am*
their opposition is founded upou purely
selfish motives und not in pired by
lofty patriotism, as tbey make it appear. ''

spared to you and to all who are thankful to him for the soul-stirnug way in
which he lias song about tho needs ot
our great common race. "

A WELCUME   RUPTURE.
The Ministerial papers on tho Coast
aro intensely "Ministerial, and the Op
position papers are intensely Opposition. So extreme are they that one
is always safe iu taking any political
statement with several grains of salt
If something in praise of the Government, tor instance, appears iu a Ministerial print, nine times out of ten it
���will stand a most liberal discount, and
just as likely as not the tenth time it
is pure imagination or invention. And
on the other hand anything intended
to reflect on the Government, which appears in nn Opposition paper, coutains
more or less exaggeration. To the
average inland mortal this condition
lends interest to tho pursuit of politioal information.
The latest Opposition story is that on
the Bill to repeal certain railway subsidies and to repudiate Government
contracts the Attorney-General was ou
the point of disaster. We would not
oare to suggest how much credence
should be given to the statement; each
reader must do that for himself. But
if not absolutely true iu all the particulars of it, we 6hall be quite on the
safe side in saying that it would be
very much to the credit of the Legislature if it were. Several Ministerial
members, appareucly led by Mr. Higgins, are said to have balked at repudiation, and it was only on the threat of
a dissolution that they were finally
whipped into line. Rather than face
their constituencies, with all the uncertainties of a general election rising up to plague them, they bolted the
Bill. It is not much, but the little that
is in it is to their credit; the only pity
is they did not have the courage to
stand up to their convictions, let the
consequences be what they might.
It is further related that the inc;-
dent has shed seeds of future dissension, and that although that particular
trouble was overcome at the time there
are others of healthy growth that are
fast maturing. Again if not true it
ought to be. A Government attaining
power as this one has ought not to
last. If they were the best men in the
Province, the fact that they preside
over the Departments by grace of a political trick renders their presence a
public scandal. But tbey are not the
best men. A majority of them are
nobodies. They have neither the education nor the training to fit them for
their positions. And one of them at
least is a dangerous demagogue, nn agitator by nature and a politician by
profession. No good can ever come to
the Proviuce through him. He will
do it grievous injury, to its sorrow
and disgrace, should he be permitted
to serve as Minister during the natural life of this Legislature. No one
who knows anything of his character
and antecedents could for a moment
believe that he was acting, or thought
he was acting, in the publio interest
when he cancelled the V. V. & E.

and should this prove the result of the
dissensions that are said to exist it
will have every reason to congratulate
itself.
times, tbat the entrance into this Held
of a large corporation, controlling the
busiuess and   rates   of  transportation,
lisconrages private smelting enterprises, nml thus deprives tho miner
of the advantages of free competition,
snch as is supposed to be prevalent in
the United States. This is a plausible
theory ; and it is concoivnblo thai, under certain circumstances, if might
be confirmed in practice. For instance, if a large railway corporal ion,
having excluded rivals from the Held,
should proceed to extort unreasonable
profits from an industry at its mercy,
there might bo reason for complaint.
Hut the remedy   of  such an  evil   lies
in the nature of the case, even apart
from legislative interference as to
rates. A simple consideration of the
amount of capital invested in a great
railroad,as compared with that invested in a smelting works, or a dozen
smelting works, will show that the
transportation business is far more important than the contributory smelting business, and that no great railroad company can afford to restrict its
transportation of ores, bullion and supplies by imposing high rates upon its
customers iu tbo comparatively subordinate business of smelting. If the
smelting business should bo owned by
a favored "ring," which sacrificed
to its sptoiul interest, tho interest of
the railway company, tho case, it
must be confessed, would present different aspect But that evil has its
own appropriate remedies ; and, as it
is not indicated in the situation now
under consideration, it need not be
considered hero,
"The general proposition, ns to the
comparative benefit to the mining industry of a few large smelting works,
located at suitable commercial centres, and numerous small works, local
ed close to the mines has been abundantly illustrated ill the United
States. All through Colorado, Montana aud Utah are scattered the ruin
of abandoned smelting works which
have been operated from a day to n
year, it being only a question of time
how long they c< uld survive. Not one
of them ever reduced ores cheaply.
Without exception, they have failed,
in spite of high smelting charges, because such small concerns.located with
reference to an adjacent ore-supply
only, without regard to the larger
controlling conditions of success, could
not possibly succeed. Only iu a very
few instances, such as the Uuited
Verde, tbe Anaconda, and the Calumet
aud Hecla copper mines, or the great
New Jersey zinc mines near New York
City, can a single deposit or locality
support its owu reduction works, and
furuish them with ore-mixtures
adapter to ocouoniical reduction. "
The experience at Trail, although it
probably has not met the expectations
of all, bas prepared the Kootenays to
welcome au extension of this enterprise
on the part of tho Canadian Pacific
Company.

ollloe. A short time ago Mr. Robin-

wns. therefore, something in the nature of an honorary position ami Sheriff Robinson evidently so oouilderod It,
Ho Haiti nothing, however, nntil Ins
ire was aroused by the reciiipt* of tho
following letter from thn Attorney-
Genoral:
Attorney-General's Offloe,

W. P.   Robinson,   Esq., Sheriff,   Nolson, ii 0.

me that von havo no deputy at Kaslo.
Would yon kindly let mo know what
is tho reason for this, l am merely
writing for intormation, I havo tbe
honor to be, sir, your obedient soi-
vant, JOSEPH MARTIN,

This was slightly moio than the
the sheriff oould stand nml he lost
little time in penning a reply and forwarding it.   The reply was l
South Kootonay Sheriff's Offloe,
Nelson, February 87, 1899.
Tho   Honorable the Attorney General,
Viotoria. B. 0.
Sir:���I have your favor, of the 24th
Instant io ooruplaintS as to there being
no deputy at Kaslo. I may say in reply that I havi been advised by counsel that I have no power to appoint
more thau oue deputy, and as Rossland
demands this convenience I allow my
deputy to reside thore. There are
other resBous, Kaslo is but n short
distanoc from Nelson, and oan be attended to by me with more satisfaction than by a man who is not properly qualified for tho duties. I may
say that there is not a man in Kaslo
thaljwould accept the position, that I
would caro to be responsible for bis
ac.i. I may say also that this matter
arises indirectly from a man who
wants the appointment and who is not
a nroper person, but thero is so very
little work to be done that tho appointment is entirely unnecessary, oven if I
had the power. With reference to the
office of shoriff generally, I may say
that under present arrangements it is
au office involving expeus*: ami work
that has no, or Insufficient, remuneration, Hero I ami keeping constantly
an offioe ooeu, with a olerk, that by
law I must have constantly there; and
as matters stand at the present, I
am not making anything like a fair
remuneration for time spent. I may
say that if matters continue ns at the
present I shall certainly not oontinde
iu the offioe. It appears to me, that
as the Government gets my servicos of
constant attendance at the offloe in
the fulfillment ot my duties, that such
service, as well as the oost of a olork
and my attendance at Supreme and
County Courts, aud the disbursements
for assistants, should all havo fair re
numeration.
I would liko you to take those
matters into consideration, and at your
convenience let mo have your answer.
I am, yours very respectfully,
W. P. KOBINSON, Sheriff.
Whether or not the Attorney-General
replied to tho above comuninicttion
has not beeu made public by Sheriff
Robinson, hut something has evidently
happened for yesteroay the following
letter was placed iu the mails :

There is little doubt that the resignation will be acoeptod, aud to: sidorablo

repented ami in addition tho  man in
the chair was compelled lo suffer the
Indignity of having his oars pulled,
This limn ho raised his head in au
effort to look around and tho second
customer was suddenly brought face lo
face with lhe fact that, he had been
slapping the bald head and pulling the
ears of a si ranger. He was very much
confused and explained to the stranger
that he had made a mistake. Apolo
gies followed and Sutcliffc was the
only one of Iho trio who tlarod or cared
to laugh real heartily.

The Windermere mining district of
North East Kooteutiy is attracting n
groat deal of attention at present.
Mr. E. J. Scovil of Windermere, who
is at present in Kaslo, was Interviewed
by The Miner aud gi"es the following intcrestiug information about the
rich district:
This district is attracting much   attention for its wonderful discoveries of
copper,   galena   and  gold, throughout
the mining   centres.    Galena mineral
discoveries   during    tho   past   season
warrant the belief that in the near future it will only be second to tho silver
Slocan as  a   producer   of  high   grade
ores,    aud  undoubtedly second to none
as a copper   producer,    its Hold deposits being not unlike those of the Boundary   Creek  district, having  immense
bodies of gold beanug quartz assaying
all the way from $4 to $i!0.    Good substantial puck   trails extend far up  the
principal creeks.    So far   Toby, Horse
Thief, Boulder, Dutch aud   .Number 2
creeks have been   prospected, but from
a prospector's standpoint the entire tlis-
tict is   in its infancy.     U\er   500 locations   were   recorded   during   1SHS,
the most of which are   under  various
stages  of   development.    In   fact   the
Windermere district   offers   more   inducements to the prospector   aud   capitalist than any other in  British   Columbia.
Many fine ranches aro located in
this district, and a lurge amount of
splendid grazing land upon which
many hundreds of
lead   can be traced for over 4,500 feet.
A large force of men are beiug worked
throughout    the   whiter    uudor  Mr.
Btarks, one of the owners.

build  from   Fort   Steele  Junction  to
Fort   Steele, thence   hy   most    diroct
route to Windermere to   connect  with
tho Arrow Lake branch through   Toby
Creek valley, aud it   is   positive  that
next summer will see   a   large   influx
of prospectors and promoters into  this
district which oft'ers   such   wonderful
advantages.    In fact  all   this  district
needs is capital to make it one of  the
greatest mineral prod-doers in the world.
There is a good   pack   trail  extending
from   the  Columbia   or    Windermere
Lake. East Kooteuay,  through to   Ar-
genta on Kootenay Lake.    The  B.   (J.
Government has placed  |8,600   among
the estimates   for   18119   for   a  bridge
across  the   Columbia   at.   tho  salmon
betls, north  eud of Lake Windermere,
which will be a great   convenience   to
the entire   district.    Besides   Windermere City   two other   towusites   have
beeu surveyed, namely,   Copper   City,
owned by a Kossland  syndicate,   situated on the northwest side of the Lake
aud the Salmon Beds ou   tho  extreme
north end of the   lake. Columbia, situated between   Toby   and Horse  Thief
creeks,is talked of as a probable town-
site but   nothing   definite   has yot occurred   ou   same.    The   C. P. R. will
undoubtedly lay  out their   own town-
Site. During the past summer the Now
Golden   Syndicate   of London,   Eng.,
"who own altogether about   !!0   properties, Bpeut a large amount of money in
developing with  grand   results.    Also
representatives of   American companies and English   syndicates   have   so-
cured some very promising propositions
and   intend   developing    ou   a   large
scale during the coming   season.    The
McLeod group   will be one of the   advertisements   of   the district as a producer. The following aro a few of   the
properties:
DELPHINE  MINE.
Situated on   Toby   Creek, owned by
Messrs. Stark, Kinipton and Harrison.
The shaft   is   now down 105   feet.    A
drift has been   run   on   the lead, at  a
depth of 100 feet, for a distance   of  40
feet.    The shaft aud drift is in ore for
the entire distance.    Tho ledge on  the
surface was   about   six   inches   wide,
and has gradually  widened  until at. a
depth of 106 feet it is nearly four feet.
Tho ore is  a   sulphide, carrying   grey
copper   and   galena.    The   clean    ore
will assay very high, an   average sample went 385 ounces   in silver   aud  70
per cent lead.    A large amount of   ore
is on the   dump ready   for   shipment.
Some 20 tons were Racket! last fall and
packed to the Columbia River for shin-
mont.    Large shipments will bo  made
as  soon as   season  will   permit  Tbe
on the ore body. The caharacter of ore
is a grey copper which assays very
high.
SITTING BULL GROLP.
Owned by Messrs. Jonhson, Kinnie,
Batlohe, consists of four claims
namely, Sittiug Bull, Colorado, Mary
.1. and Alice. The Sitting Bull aud
Mary J. have been bonded to R. R.
Bruce representing a foreign syudioate
for $40,000. The character of ore is
clean high grade galena carrying grey
