HOSPITAL PHYSICIAN'S REPORT
The President aud Directors of the
Kooteuay Lake General Hospital:
Gentlemen���I take great pleasure in
submitting for perusal the annual report tor the above hospital for the fiscal year ending Maroh 81, 1699. Wi
have treated a larger number of patients this yoar than iu any other
previous year, and have hud a greater
mortality rate than previous years.
This iB due to the larire number of
typhoid lever patients coming in from
the outside, many of them in a dying
condition -wnen leaching the hospital.
Our death rate, however, compares
very favorably with othor hospitals
both in and out of this Province. We
have hud exceptionally good success
this year with pneumonia, having
treated seven cases without a death.
I regret that our accommodation was
so limited. Throe times the present
number of patients would have been
treated last yoar if there had been
room. There is a great need of a female ward and a few private rooms,
which 1 siucorely hope the hoard will
be able to erect this year. Before
closing I wish to thank the matrons
and nurses for the careful attention
they have giveu tho different cases in
their charge during the vear. It is
owing to the good nursing and careful
attention given the patients that our
success is largely due. I also wish to
thank tho directors for the courtesy
mid assistance which they rendered
me on overy occasion ; and last but uot
least, I wish to heartily thank the
Ladies' Hospital Aid for the many
ways in which they added to the comfort of the patients and convenience
of those in attendance. Appended you
Will hud a report of the cases treated
mid thoir nature. I have the honor
to be your obedient servant,
GEO. A. B.VHALL.

latter two to tho board ot directors
came as a surprise to theiii. In their

stocks explained the objeots of the deputation which was to suggest, to the
Hoard thut the hospital building should
he enlarged, private wards erected
and a house surgeon appointed. The
Aid would cheerfully furnish any ud-
dition made, This would provide for
the present inconvenient accommodation and would not interfere w-i'h the
emotion of a new* building at any time

piotetl that the Government would
hive, before this, given the hospital
the property in lhe Oity sot aside for

view to readjusting the agreement
whereby the men receive treatment
from the medical superintendent of the

A conimittc was also appointed to

jourued. Under the charter the Pro
vincial Government can appoint three

Colonies, introduced a bill in the
House of Commons, empowering local

OF TREATING
AT ELECTION
An Ontario   Court's   Idea
About it.
MEMBER IS UNSEATED
Judges Were Not Adverse to Treating, But One Maintained it Was a
Breaoh of the Law-
J Toronto, March 14.���The appeal in
tlm case of elect ion trial for North
Wuterloo wbb dismissed this morning
with oosts by the court of appeals.
The appeal was on behalf of Dr. Luck-
uer, Conservative, who was deolared
elooted by 60 majority but was unseated for bribery and treating by agents
on his behalf. It is argued that the
treating proved was not illegal and
the offences proven and admitted came
within the saving clause of the aot
aud were uot sufficient to upset the
election. The majority of the court
admitted that treating by agents wr
not a broaoh of the election aot bill
considered the bribery charges proven
sufficiently to show that the election
had not Decn conducted on honest
lines. Judge McLennan dissented
from the first part of the conclusions,
maintaining the view that treating
on an extensive scale as proven was a
beach of the law. The seat is therefore opened and a new election ordered.

TRAFFIC   INTERRUPTED.

or departed on the Duluth South Shore
and Atlantic Railway since last Saturday. Eighty m los of the track i-i
covered with solid ice, west of Sage

today picking lot from thi rails.
CominiBB:oaer is   Already Treatiug With
Germany aud Fiance, and Will
Also   With    England.
Washington, March 14.���Negotiations for reciprocity treaties with Germany nnd France havo beon resumed
nnd there is still a prospect that a
treaty may bo negotiated with Great
Britain covering the British West Indies. Theso several treaty negotiations
were interrupted some months ago oy
tho service Mr. Kosson, the Uuited
States reciprocity commissioner, was
obliged to givo to the Canadian Commission. Ah this work is closed,
Mr.Kassiou is free to resume the negotiations with the other countries and
ho has written to inform them that he
is at liberty to proceed. On the part
of France it is proposod to givo to the
United Slates thoir minimum tariff
list. The French tariff has two rates
a maximum ami a minimum. The
differences average about SB per cent.
Countries special1}- favored by F'rauce
get the minimum rate while those having no arrangements pay tho maximum rate of 'lb per cent, higher. The
effect of this is to place higher prices
on American goods than on those of
England, Germany. Russia aud some
31 conutries with which Franoe has
made ooinmerpl****'   arrangements     The
���etiyc *ol   ClJO   ' ll. Keit.,!! tlullS     witii     I'CI
many is shown in the fact that Seoretary Hay is himself carrying it forward. Tlie detailed work on schedules
not having been taken up as yet by
Mr. Kasaon, The British negotiations reached an advanced stage and
then collapsed entirely. They were
managed bv Sir Julian Pauncefote and
Mr. Kasson, who together outlined the
articles to be covered by the proposed
treaty. The document wns about ready
to sign lust summer when the London
authorities made a statement that they
were considering the advisability of
granting countervailing duties to tbe
sugar producers ot the British West
Indies after the American practise.
This put off the reciprocity treaty, for
if the Imperial Government gave
countervailing dutiss there wai not
the same need of reciprocity arrangement. But, except for this statement, the imperial Government has
uot done anything on countervailing
duties and the West Indian colonies
havo received neither the benefit of the
duties nor of tbe reciprocity treaty. It
has suffered, however, to let the negotiations lapse and no progress on the
subject has beeu attempted of late. If
Sir Julian goes to the Disarmament
Congress at Tbe Hague in May he is
not likely to conclude tbe reciprocity
negotiations bofore he goes and after
that the two years tor the period of the
negotiation of reciprocity treaties under the Dingley bill will have expired.

made by Ibe Goldfields  Gazette  is a
reasonable one.    We   are  old   enough
! now to know better.    There is a  lmge
amount of British oapital invested  in
! the mines of   the   Province,   and   wo
must expect the British public will be
interested   in   knowing what is   being
dono.    It   should cost little trouble  or
expense to provide for complote uud tie- ,
ourate   returns   at   the   end   of  each
month, and the prompt publication  of I
these would he us welcome at home as
abroad.    Now that Mr. Hume has beeu
given a Department  of MineB  all to ]
himself, the least   that we   oan expect \
is that he will employ his grout Inventive  and   administrative    talents  to
devise a system 'of   mining   statistics
that   will   meet the  popular  requirements.

THE OPPORTUNITY LOST.
Yesterday we published a portion
of an article which recently appeared
in The Toronto (llobe, in which that
vory unoertain if not erratic organ
confesses conversion to the principle of
inter-imperial preference. Uo not let
any reader run uwuy with the notion,
howover, that it will oonfess il is a
confession. It will ruther Bay that
it has always been of that belief. But
thero is nu record the fact that for several months it labored most earnestly
to defend Sir Wilfrid Laurier for telling tho British people, when he went
over to the Jubilee, that Onnada wanted nothing for tho trade preference she
had just voted tbo Mother Country ;
that Canada wns generous, uud grateful, and loyal,and oppulent withal,and
could utford such gifts, aud that Britain hud better stick to her ^discriminating fiscal policy. Thnt is on record:
hut uow The Globe is willing to accept u preference in return for our preference.
Tho change has been easily wrought.
Owing to heavy army and navy climates the British budget tbis year will
be remarkable ohiefly for its deficit.
The London Times suggests that It bo
met by an import duty of u shilling a
quarter on wheut, equivalent to three
cents a bushel. Here is an opportunity to
press for a different!!! in*favor of colonial wheut. As a measure of Imperial policy, lut Groat Britain admit our
wheut free. This is a "desirable
end", The Globe says. Notwithstanding all that has been said to the contrary, Canada had au opportunity to
get this differential in 1HH7. when a
wave of Imperialism swept the Empire, wheu such men as the Duke of
Devonshire und Mr. Chamberlain were
outspoken in lavor of it, uud Lord
Salisbury and Mr. Balfour were visibly in sympathy. It wus rejected then
by the Canadian Premier, iu a spirit
of magnificent sacrifice which no one
ever bus or over will be able to understand. There is far loss chance ot getting it now. Grout Britain would
hnve done much from sentiment; but
she will scurcely be moved from her
old fiscal moorings by a sordid consideration of deficits.
Tho Colonial Goldfields Gazette is
not. pleased with the negotiations at
Washington. "When the Commission commenced its sittings," it says,
"we were accustomed to hour a great
doul about the cordial entente which
was said to exist between the two
great blanches of the Anglo-Saxon
race; but as fur ns the negotiations at
Washington are concerned, it bus to
be admitted with regret thut, the supposed rapproachement exists in words
but not in deeds." This is hardly a
fair way of putting it. The negotiations nre not off, as far as is known,
and until they are we are not'justified
in acousing our neighbors of a selfishness to which thev would sacrifice a
friendly understanding. In the meantime the mutter is purely a business
one, and we do not know that friendship is ever allowed to stand in the
way of a good bargain, The American professions to which our contemporary alludes tuny be hollow, but the
time bus not come to say so with certainly.

The yrnr is well on into its third
month, yet no one connected with uny
of tbe Goverumeut Departments at
Victoria is able to say what the mineral output of tlie Province was in
1898, Nearly two months after the
close of the year the Financial Minister ventured ou whal he culled an estimate of the yield, but that is the nearest approach, the only approaob, to
exnet Information on a mutter of more
general public interest than any other
affecting     British     Columbia.      This
items so extraordinary to The Colonial
Goldfields Gazette that 11 has made it
the subject of n lending article. The
(in/etta cannot understand why the
Government authorities hero aro so
much behind tho times. In the Australian colonics mining returns are published monthly; it does not see why ns
much cannot he done here, or, if thut
is too much energy to display at once,
why at least there should not bo quarterly returns.
There is probably Home excuse for us.
Cauuda has uot been u mining country
iu the sense thnt Australia has been
ever since its first settlement. Our
thoughts ran to agriculture and lumbering, and it is only in recent yours
we have begun to realise the extent of
our mineral wealth, due result of
this is that nowhere in the Dominion
is there a perfect system of mineral
statistics.    This   excuse applies less to
British Columbia,however, than to the
other Provinces, for here milling has
been ono of tho chief   Industries of the
people for a good third of a  oentory,
We have probably neglected to provide
for returns of output mainly for the
renSOU that the rest of the country did
DOt encourage us by example,  But this

Tbo minutes of tbe Inst reunlnr meeting of the Council and of the several
speoial meetings subsequently held,
were rend nnd nppi'OTfid.
Tho report of tbe Finance Committee was then presented. The Committee recommended two slight ohnnges
in the report of February 21 fixing tbe
ilnties Of the City Solicitor; reoom-
menileil that the claim of Gamble &
O'Kielly for |80, the ohalrge of F. C.
Gamble for n report ns to drainage of
tho City sewerage into Kootenay
Lake, be pnid, and recommended nlso
the payment of several bills. The report   was   adopted.
Oity Solicitor Gnllilicr wrote transmitting n letter from tho Attorney-
General stnting that the Government
could tnke no action in regard to the
burial of paupers. The letter wua received nnd filed.
A letter from Macdonald & Johnson
onlled attention to legislation grnutinK
certain rights to tho West Kooteuay
Power and Light Co. On motion of
Aid. Thomson, seconded by Aid. Hillyer, the Mayor was instructed to appoint a committee to investigate nnd
report in regard to Ibe water rights
granted the West Kooteuay Power and
Light Co,, the report, to be made as
soon us possible so that notion could be
taken prior to tho ratification of Ihe
bill by the Lteulennnt-Goveruor in
Council.
Letters were read from If. B. Bens-
ley and A. 15. Hodgins with regard to
the very poor condition of the sidewalk
on Baker street to tbe 0. P. R. depot.
The letters were relerrnl fcf* lhe
Board of Works Committee.
A letter from Mr. Harold Scions
complaining because thero is no crossing at the corner of Stanley nnd Vin-
toiiu streets from the Customs House
to the Hotel Phair wns road. Mr. Se-
lous also complained that the water
rom Stanley street was being drained
into his garden nnd asked for relief.
Tbe communication was referred io

The Sabbath Observance Sooiety
presented a petition asking that tlie
Provincial Law. relating to tbe closing
of suloons on Sunday, bo  enforced in
Nelson. Tbe petition was signed by
t'linrles A. MjKny, President; S. M.
Brydges, Secretary; W. J. Hatch,
Thomas Parkinson, committee. Mr.
McKay was present nnd spoke in behalf of tho petition. On motion of
Aid. Hillyer the matter was referred
to a committee of the Council for consideration.
Aid. Hillyer presented nn amendment to the trades license by-law providing for one additional hotel license
for points west of Stanley street.
Aid. Beer suggested tbat tbe amendment be laid over to be considered iu
committee of the whole
Aid. Thomson was not in favor,
generally speaking, of increasing saloon and hotel licenses. There was,
however, a feeling that the West Ward
bad not boon treated on an equal basis
with the East, Ward, aud he therefore
seconded Aid. Hillyer's motion to
amend.
Aid. MoKillop, moved in amendment that tbe matter be referred to
the Council in committee of the whole.
The amendment was defeated, Aid.
MoKillop, Beer and Kirkpatrick voting aye, and Aid. Fletcher, Hillyer
and Thomson in tho negative.
Tho original motion of Aid. Hillyer providing for an increase iu licenses, was then voted upon and car-
ired, Aid. Fletcher, Hillyer aud Thorn-
sou in the affirmative, and Aid. Beer
and MoKillop in tho negative, Aid.
Kirkpatrick declining to vote.
A. W. Pock, who bad been engaged
to audit tbo City accounts, presented
his leport, the consideration nf which
was left to tho noxt meeting of the
Council. The report was a very extensive oue and there woro many suggestions of ways in which the City's
financial affairs could be better run
thau at present. The statement of receipts and disbursements for tne year
ending Doc. 81, 18IIS, showed an overdraft, on the last day of the year of
$686.95, instead of a balance as reported in Auditor Hamilton's Statement,
There are also unpaid accounts for the
year 181)8 to bo paid by the present, Counoil, aggregating $8,8711 85,
against whloh there is a credit of arrears in electric light and water rates
of 11,019.08, showing a total loss for
the year of .$3,861.53.
Aid. Hillyer presented a motion, seconded by Aid. Kirkpatrick, designed

Winter is dying ; dying hard though,
and leaving the trace of his iron hand
with us in the shape of frosty nights
nnd snow-capped bills. That inveterate liar, tho oldest inhabitant, prophesied thnt we should have an early
spring; we are still waiting for the
fulfilment of that promise. Today, ao-
cording to Mr. Bullock-Webster* (the
legal angler dissenting) wo enter upon
the last angling season of this century.
Soon the picturesque stretch of water
which forms one of the boundaries of
this cily will be dolled with numberless bonts nnd canoes and the angler���
the dangerous rival in mendacity of
the aforesaid oldest inhabitant���will
be adding to tho somewhat limited
topic of conversation. What a blessing lo ns that stretch of water is! We
are walled in by sleep precipitous
mountains. Walks beoome monotonous
and driving is confined to the physician and the expressman. There lire
times when business is none too plen-
liiul nnd every man .luy* a ..cert .in
amount (if leisure hern Wb have
but tbe healing wuteis of Koptrmiy
Lake and Hiver to cure Ihe tedium of
nndetirod reSt or tbe worn brain or
limbs as toe case may be. Angling
has heen written of as "ihe g.'irle
art," the "contemplative man's ro-
creation," lhe "peaceful sport,*" and
the true joy of angling lies in the
charm Of nature scenery, and quiet
rest that, to ibe well ordered mind.
Should aooompauy it. Mr Weller s
"swarry," of a boiled leg of mutton
were a thing of naught without tl e
'"usual aoeorapaniments" and angling
obeys the law of the founder of that
immortal banquet.
It has heen recorded that the apostles
of the Christian Church wero fishermen and il cannot be irreverant. to
suggest that there may be times win*u
tbe peaoetul waters of Kootenay Lake
may bring thoughts to the mind, not
unlike those inspired by tho Galileen
Sea, in the minds of St. Peter and his
companions.
Possibly it, is for such reasons that
angling offers the same inducement to
ho tyro ns to the expert. To us ��� li
somewhat homely expression, we nil
need something that will "tnke us out
ot ourselves;" something to lessen tie
task of lhe struggle for existence, the
race for gold and all the sordid and
petty slrife that follows in its train.
When the fish show a disinclination
to feed on your fur and feather monstrosities, lay aside your rod and look
around yon. There are portions of
the Kootenay Lake which for scenery
are incomparable. What associations
will nol tiiis scenery bring to mind?
IJnys long i ast, spent���or perhapslmis-
silent,for none of us are without blame
���in far distant lands with loved ones
or friends long syne parted from, or
who have passed the bourn from
which no traveler reluins, leaving but
the memory of form and voice. Look
to tbe batiks I Thnt Mower, ho it ill
the gorgeous garb or faint perfume,
will reoall to us somo happy scene or
somo dear form.
Tho song of birds, the drone of tho
bee complete the charm of nature's
kcleidescopo. (lo to, thou Philistine,
thou scoffer with your ironies of a
"worm ut one end of the line and a
fool at the other" and let him that is
able to receive the gospel according lo
Isaac Walton (peaoe to his ashes) ponder these things in his heart. And
may our baskets for 18'JU be heavy
while our hearts are light.

THE BANK OF B. C.
REPORT OF THE LAST  0RD1BABY
GENERAL MEETING.
Meeti 'With tha Unqualified Approval of
the   DiTBotora���Dividend
Declared.
read  the  notice
Gentlemen, the
The Financier of February 10 laBt
contained tbe following report of tbe
ordinary general meeting of tbe Bank
of British Columbia, which will bo of
general interest.
Tbe ordinary general meeting of tbe
proprietor! ot this banlc was held :*es-
Iciday nt the City Terminus Hotel,
Cannon Street j Sir linbort Gillespie
(the chairman*  presiding.
Mr. S.   Cameron   Alexander (seoretary and manager)
palling the meeting.
Th�� chairman said
directors   have   invited  you   to   meet
tlipm today to submit to ynu tbe report
and statement of accounts for the half-
year ended on Ihe Dlst December last.
These bave beeu in your bauds for
the last few days, and 1 bave no doubt
rccoived your attentive consideration
aud 1 also hope your approval. (Applause). The result of the half-year's
busiuess has linrdlv readied the expectations of your direotors, especially
whon the revival ond prioress of tbe
commercial interests of the Colony of
British Columbia are considered, bul
this may be accounted for in (treat
measure by the keen competition we
bave had to encounter from tbe Eastern Canadian banks that have so recently been established in that country, and tbe consequent reduced rates
of interest aud other attractions offered
to secure business. Of course, gentlemen, this is A condition of things
we must he prepared to meet,and up to
the present time, I am glad to say,
wo hold our own in tho trading community. (Applause.) The account wc
now submit to you, made up to the
Hist December last, of liabilities and
assets, indicates, I think, linancial
strength, showing, as it docs, a large
percentage of available assets to meet
any immediate liability ; this will, I
am sure, be considered a satisfactory
feature. (Applause.) The profit and
loss account gives for the half-year
the sum of ��18,786 Ils. 4d. at credit, after providing f(r all ascertained lossoi.
and which is, 1 am happy to say,
somewhat in excess of the previo s
three half-years. Your directors ret ���
OUimend that a division at tho rate (f
5 per cent, per annum bo made for
the half-yeir ended 81st December,
1W18- tbis will absorb tbe sum of
��15,000 leaving a balance of ��8,785 lis
4d. to be carried forward to next
half-year, lu connection with the accounts I may mention that we have
reduced the charges account by
��4.541) since June, 1H97. Before sitting
dowu I will move a resolution an to
the dividend I have already briefly alluded to the revival that has taken
place during the past vear in the trade
of British Columbia, and I may add
that there is strong evidenoe of further
aud increasing activity and progress
this season in tbo commercial, the agricultural, and the mining interests of
that, country. Tbe only interest that
suffered last year was the salmon fisheries, from the fact of a very short run
of fish, aud thus tbe canneries have
beon loft with a large proportion of
their supplies on hand, but which will
be available. I hope profitably, I his
coming season. I am glad to lie able
to include the State of California in
the improvement I have just referred
to; heavy rains havo at last fallen, and
business is resuming its native career
there. The Into war hIbo restricted
business both of an export and import
character. Tbe mining outlook all
ovur British Columbia is satisfactory
and encouraging, aud tbe development
ill the mines has brought to view, in
many instances, large bodies of ore of
various minerals that promise a con-
tiuuance of increasing output, aud the
completion of the railways under construction, and those projeoted, will enable many valuable properties to
swell later returns The prospecting
work done in divisions not traversed
by railways is also going on, and satisfies those best acquainted with the
country that mining in British Columbia is, ns yet, ouly in its initial stage.
Agriculture in British Columbia
never appeared more favorable for success than at the present time. The increased demand of tbe past two years,
aud tbo good crops, have done much
toward re-establishing the oonfid*:nco
of the farmer. The harvest of 1HP8
was gQod, and this, following the
previous year's largo crop lias materially
Improved tho agricultural interests of
the country. On a review, therefore,
of the whole position of things in British Columbia and in California, I
think I mny fairly hope for the present
year an improving and more encouraging future than we have lately ex-
perieilO id, and I truflt 1 may see these
anticipations fully 'realised. I beg to
,nove���"That tho report and statement
of nccounts. as now snbmitled, be received and adopted. "    ( Applause. )
Mr. Henry J. Gardiner seconded the
resolution, which was put to the
meeting and carried unanimously.
The chairman: 1 bave next lo
move���"Tbat a dividend be paid on tbe
paid-up capital of the bunk ut tho rate
of B per cent, per annum, free oti noome-
tax, for tbe half-year ended 81st
camber last, payable ou and after
18th instant."
Mr.   T. G.   Gillespie  seconded
resolution, which was also agreed
The cbariman : 1 bave great pleasure
in proposing the re-election of my
friend Mr. Henry .1 Gardiner, bn a director, and I have no doubt it will receive your support. He is a most
valuable and attentive colleaBiie, and
iu evory way I think wc could not
have a hotter man to help us. (Hear.
Hoar. )
Mr. Guy Oswald Smith seconded the
motion, which was put aud carried.
Tho * chaii man ; I have also to
move.���"That Mr. T G. Gillespie,
who retires by rotation in accordance
with the deed of settlement, be reelected. " You will at on- c sec the
delicacy I have ben*; 1 cannot ��ay
more for my dear old cousin than that

collsngue and director.    '" i

the

to,
He ii  always

on bis shoulders     I Hear, Hoar.)
Mr. \V. C. Ward seconded the resolution, which was put and enrriud unanimously,
Mr. Walker next propr.sed���"That
Mr. Wyndbam Qibbel and Mr. It.
Cunniiing bo re-elected audi tins for the
ensuing year, at a remuneration of ��75

Mr. Cballis seconded the motion,
which was also agreed to.
SINKING   OF   THE   ANGERONA.
Drydouking Had a Very Serious Effect
on tho Craft.
Tbo steamer Angerona has juat been
through an exciting experience but is
ones more running as usual. She was
run ashore at Kokaneo Crook nbout a
month ago nnd painted, cleaned and
otherwise fixed up.* Being high und
dry for three weeks loosened hor seams
so when tbe Kokanee towed her off
sbore last week the results were disastrous, Sho no sooner struck the water
than she oommenoed to sink and within half an hour wus at the bottom of
the lake. Tho captain and the crow
bad barely time to scruniblo ashore before the boat went r'.owu beneath them.
The tug Hayls, Capt. West, went
to the scene of the wreck and after
threo dayB of hard work, managed to
get tho Angerona ouco more above
water. She was towed to Kaslo and
resenmed and is now aB fit as  a fiddle.
FATE OF   SUNKEN AINSWORTH.
She
Wreck Will  Probably   Be Sold ua
Is And Raised.
The conipuny owning the steamer
Ainsworth, which now lies in 124 feet
of water in Crawford Bay, will probably sell tho wreck as it stands nnd
lhe purchaser will raise it as a spoou-
Intion. Two different meu bave made
otters to the oompany to raise the boat
for 9600 and $700 respectively but the
offers have not beeu entertained, evidently with n view to seeing if a better arrangement regarding soiling the
wreck cannot be   made.
Capt. Wost, of the teg Hayls, states
that he offered to laise the Ainsworth
nnd that lu* thinks sbe is but little
damaged. Siie Bland8 on her wheel
nnd the bow can still be seen on a fn-
vorable day. From ibe manner in
which sbe went down Oapt Wost
thinks th.it the freight has slipped
back to tbe engine loom and is still of
somo value. Tbe $500 worth of
whiskey would certainly not bo at a|l
injured by its long imersion in cold
water.The chances are, too, that the bodies of Purser John Guru and the Chinese oook are still in ibe wreck
Neither had time to get ont as the
boat, went over. These are probably the
only bodies that went down with the
wreck as the others were drowned bv
ihe capsizing   of a life boat.

Tbe old   saying, '��� it is   an  ill-wind

says the Sandon Mining Review.

differences  nruBi   between Mr.   Scott
McDonald and some of the rest nf the
company, wben tbe former look an
interest in the Lust Ohnuco without
letting bis colleagues of the Payne into the secret As n consequence Mr.
McDonald's stock in the Payne was
placed on the market with the published report of the Payne's workings.
This publication lias brought up Payne
stock with a bound, and is creating
muoh enquiry about Slocan properties. In short, nothing of lute (lays
has done so much to advance the interests of tho Slooan as the differences
referred to and the consequent publication of the profits of the Payne.
