THE CANADIAN MILITIA
The Governor Genoral Deals With it and

Toronto Club, the following wero present ns invited guests: Lord Strath-
conn, Bishop of Toronto, Justices S.
Moss, Fnlconbridge and Lister, Premier Hardy and Sonntors Cox nnd
Melnues. Speaking did not begin
until n lute hour and tho offloial report
was blinded to the press at two in the
morning. Miilto's speech contained
little of note, save possibly the following reference to the military department. "I nm bound to say from
What I have seen, I fiel sure, there
is a great future for the militia force
of the Dominion, juging from what
I know of the Minister of Militia and
of the intention of tha general officer
commnmling flint force. I may Bay
General Hutton is a very old friend of
nine nnd if energy nnd tact nnd
knowing soldier's profession onu ensure success, he is bound to succeed,
but, ns I nm sure many of you know,
the npnoinlnient of n general oMieer
eonininndinii the militia is not n sinecure. It resls with tbe people of Onii-
nda to insist upon the fact thut to obtain military otiicion-v military ro��'
ohinery must 60 entirely iiiibnnipereil
by. political influence. (Great Applause.) Bnt, gentlemen, 1 bave already told yon that I do not, as yet,
feel (nullified to express opinions   upon
international affairs of fjan da ami
perhaps I have said enough." The
Governor Genernl contrasted the present conditions in Oanada with those
existing 16 years ago, when he was
here; when Heil wns in rebellion and
the 0. P. R. was building. Ho congratulated the members of the club on
its present prosperity. "I find." be
said, "increasing revenue nnd increasing trade and 111 very few days, now,
we shall commence to reap the benefit
of tbe new link which Hon. Mr. Mulock hns forged .in the Imperial chain
by his Imperial Penny Postage "
Lord Stralhconn in the course of a
brief reply to the toast of his health
touched on the importance of securing
immigration, He did not want to see
'lninigration confined to the mother
country or to getting back from ncross
ihe boundary those who had gone
there. He wanted such immigration
supplemented by still more from the
continent of Europe. Though such
immigrants might, be a littlo strange
to us ut tlie beginning, their children
will become good citizens. He continued: "1 heard Iho other day from
(he Deputy Minister of the Interior
that be, himself, having gone to our
Northwest to find out tbe result of
the emigration of Gulncians into our
country, felt so convinced thut thev
were valuable und would make valuable settlors that he would be very glad
to have more of them. Further than
that he said young men and women
already were so very fur advanced
that  they  could make themselves uu
derstood very well Indeed 111 the Eng-
11kIi language aud that they were
most aUXlOUH to become   good   English
mill gooil Canadian men und women."

Buffalo, Dee. IT, - -The grain block*-
ade at tliin port continues and is uu-
predeoeuted. At noon today fully 80
large steamers were in Ihe river wail
ing lo be unlouded or fro/en in. They
curry about 9,000,000 bushels of grain,
while in the different olevntors ?.-
000,000 bushels arc ur present stored.
This total of Jl6,000,00,0 bushels if
grain afloat and temporarily in storo
is u record breaker of fbe firsl dimension. Ice is forming too rapidly lo
permit any of the bouts attempting
another trip up the lakes, consequently
this great fleet of grain carriers will
be forced to winter in ibis port. The

meeting and every member and prospective member should ninhe il a
point to attend. 'Ihe oiler ef th 1 proprietors of the new rink, as reported
in yesterday's Miner, will be considered and arrangements will bo made
for Ihe season's curling. Some of tbe
members are in favor of building 11
rink for the club ami sonic are in fa-
vir of other plans to secure accommodation for the winter, All these
plans and schemes will be considered
nt the meeting tbis evening.
One thing is sure, the curlers say,
and that is. that thorn will be curling
here this winter whether the club patronizes the new rink or nol.
Victoria. Dec. 15.���Judgment was
handed down this morning by Mr.
Justice Drake in the matter of the proceedings to commit tho manager and
editor of the Colonist for contempt of
court in referring to the hearing of
proceedings in election petitions by
a recently appointed judge who hud
taken nn .active part in tho political
ciutest. After reviewing the arguments presented, he said "Lord Jns-
tico Cotton in Hunt vs. Clarke, 870
law reports, says, 'In my opinion,
no application to commit for contempt ought to be made unless the
offence was of so serious n nature us to
render the exercise of this sum-.nry
power neoessary to prevent interference with the course of justice.' Applying this language to the caso before 1110, I do not see anything in Hi a
articles read which can be snid to
fall within the scope nf this language,
It is true a technical contempt has
been committed, but not nf such a
cbarnjler ns culls for the extreme mens-
nre of committing the iiurtifs lo prison. I think that this ease will lie
fully met by making no order on this
motion, the result of which will be
'hat oaeb nurty will have to pay its
own e sts. "
Dealing wilh the-point raised as to
the validity of Mr. Justice Martin's
appointment, he not having pruoticBe'd
;it the Provincial bar for ten years, as
required by tbe Supreme Court Act,
Mr. Justice Ir.iko snid, ���'Cuni.-il then
contended lhat Mr Justice Martin
was not properly appointed us he was
not of the standing indicated bv sec-
ion 10 of Chapter 66, This is u subject which I cannot riisouss, the appointment having been made by
ihe Oovornor-in-Couucil cnlin.lt bo
reviewed by this court."
The scaling fraternity are happy
today because nf the receipt of advices
from London that sealskins roalizcd
bigger prices than in many seasons
east at Lmupson's snlo which took
place this morning in London. Alaskan skins sold for three per cent
higher than last year nnd the coast
catch tor fie per cent higher than at
the last side. The average price realized per skin is placed nt from J!) :S(l
to $10. All the skins sent to London
were sold at this Bale. A number wore
to have been offered this afternoon at
the Hudson's Bay Company's sale and
a number wonld be left for tho spring
sales.

in keep it hanging OVI r Coiroe s and
Parliament during the coming your.
iJmglev holds the snme view quite
strongly and is confident that the results will be as good now ns they
would be after u long adjournment,
perhaps belter. Under the circumstances the announcement of n lengthy

would simply mean that irreconcilable
differences had been developed and
negotiations were nt    an end."

I Washington, Dec. 15. ���The war department today made public the formal order providing for the military

itary Governor of llavnnu City while
nominally   subordinate to tlie division
commander, Genernl   Brook, is appnr-
enty charged to exercise all the civil
functions in thut place under the direct authority of Hie President. Gen.

those of a strictly military government
although it is said at the war department he may eventually be charged
with all tbe duties, civil as well as
military of the governor of a Province.

MINING DEVELOPMENT.
As the present year of grace is now
rapidly drawing ro a close, it may not
be amiss to take a glance back nt the
work accomplished in some of tho
prominent mines in tho vicinity.
It is difficult to say anything very
fresh about the Hall Mines without
going into a mass of technical detail?,
That great mine has, however, been
���hipping an average of over 100 tons a
day nil the year. Tbe company has
also purchased more machinery for
the mine, which will bo operated by
electricity, and, it is understood, un
elaborate plan for the further development of the deep levels of the mine
was drawn up last summer and is
being actively prosecuted. Tbe Last
Ohnuce mine, on Toad Mountain, wns
taken hold of enrly in tbe spring by n
���troug English Company, nnd a considerable nniouut of development work
bus been done, details of which ap
penred in n recent issue of this   paper
The English company operating tbe
Athabasca mine, enrly in the year,
put aside the sum of (50,000 for development work, nnd the erection of a
mill, etc. The result of the season's
operations has been the erection of a
first class 10-stamp null nnd tramway ;
the mine has nlso beeii thoroughly
opened up, nnd there is enough ore
now in sight to keep the stumps
busy for six months to cone.
The mill is crushing 3fl tons a tiny,
making about one ton of concentrates
in thut timo. As previously announced the cleanup last month
amounted ns nearly ns possible to$N. -
000,and still better results accompanied
by dividends are looked for in the near
future.
Development wns begun this full
on the Exchequer, nnd the results nro
most eneourugiiig to the management,
while the California group was recently acquired by Mr. Hugh Sutherland, on which development is being
vigorously pushed, and a large amount
of high grade ore is being sneked
ready for shipment. These properties
which nro situated close to the Athabasca carry high grade free milling
ore. A large amount of work has also
been done during tho past season on
many other claims iu the vicinity of
the above, notably tlie Juno group,nnd
the results in every ense have been such
as to warrant lite contitlenco felt by
their respective owners, that in the
near future there will be a large group
of dividend paying free milling properties quite close fo town.
Great mining activity  has also been
displayed this year iu Ihe region of
Forty Nine, L'agle, and Hover creeks.
Iii the Nelson-Poorinnii a great ileal or
the solid development work tbat wns
so much needed iu th.it rich properly
bus been done, and (he etintinuanco of
the ore bodies has been proved at a
great depth, The Granite and Royal
Canadian, which were taken over by
tho Duncan Syndicate iu the spring,
have had a large force of men nt work
OU them nil the season, and with such
good results thut tin- management has
mado every preparation for the erection of a stump null in the spring.
Hover Creek bus received a great deal
of attention from prospectors this sum
mer, nnd a large number of claims
have been staked there, on many of
which assessment work has boon dono
already
Tho Fern Mine has preserved its
reputation for richness iu the most
substantial mannor, namely, by distributing dividends among its shareholders.
Messrs. Campbell and Finch have
beon developing the Second Relief, on
the north fork of the Salmon, nil
tho season in the most conservative
manner,   nnd  about   1600 tons of ore
have been Ink ml in  the  course   of
development,     which   is   now   bring
Shipped.    The   owners   will   erect    a
down the creek, a largo force of men
have beon at work nil the year, nnd it
bus been stated that the Dewdney
Syndicate, to whom the property belongs, will put in n cyanide plant next
year.
The Porto Rico mine is nnother.i'i'O-
perty which the year's work hns elevated from the rank of a prosnoct to
that of u mine. The management
has installed a 10-stamp mill and compressor plant, which .opened up on tlie
6th Instant, nnd is giving every sntis
faction. Those in churge announce
that there is plenty of ore in sight for
an extended run of thu mill.
The great wealth of the Ymir mine
is so universally recognized that it is
hardly necessary lo say much about it.
It may be mentioned that a large
foroe of men hnve been nt work thero |
day nnd night nil the year, that during
the summer it was officially nn-
nounoed that'll,600,000 worth of ore
was then blocked out, nnd tho management hns ordered a 40-stirup mill,
which should shortly be in operation.
Tbe Dundee mine, has showed this
year, too, that the confidence reposed
in it by the shareholders of the company was not misplnced. The best
proof that cnu bo given of this ie,
that the directors, instead, of putting
the stock on tho market, hnve token
up sufficient themselves to purchase a
concentrator and mill, when it is expected that the miuo will pay dividends.
Yet another stamp mill is in process of erection on Six Mile creek,
where the Oro mining aud Milling
Company consider that the result of
the season's work justifies them in
incurring a heavy expenditure in this
respect. The Mollie Gibson is another
mine that has been steadily worked all
this season, and so successfully, that
the management has paid the very
heavy payments necessary to take up
the bond.
No attempt has been made here to
givo an exhaustive review of the sen-
son's work in the mining districts
tributary to Nelson. Such a re\ iew
would be beyond the scopo of n short
article. Nn reference whatever hns
been made to the hundreds of properties in thu initial stages of development, nor to ninny indeed which may
fairly claim to have passed out o"
those stuges. Enough, however, has
"been said lo draw attention to the
prosperous and promising condition
of the mining industry in tho Nelson
Mining Division, Never before have
such bright prospects heralded a new
year.

Opening Services.
Tile banilsoine new stoue church
erected by the English Ohurch people
of Nelsou was opened with fitting ceremony yesterday two speoial services
being held in lienor of the occasion.
Both services were fully choral. In
the morning Mr. Frank Oliver sang
"Arm, Arm yo Brave" in superb
fashion. Archdeacon Pentreath
preached nn eloquent sermon in which
he deplored the waning of the religious spirit which is so noticeable
uow-a-days. He congratulated the people of Nelson on their new church and
took occasion to compliment Mr. Curtis, the architect of the building.
Holy Communion was administered
after the service, the music was Dvkes
iu P.
At tho evening service, whioh was
attended by a large congregation, the
music for the Magnificat and Nunc
Diuiittis was Tours in F. the am hem
being "O Taste nnd See" by Goss.
Mrs. Melville Parry sang before the
offertory "Angels Ever Bright and
Pair," with beautiful effect. The
acoustic properties of the church are
very good, and her rich voice filled
it to perfection. The accompaniments
were played ou two organs, Mr.
Haines presiding at one nnd Mr. Jow-
���ett the other. The singing by the
choir and congregation was exceptionally hearty,
The Rev. H. Irwin delivered tbe
���sermon. The preacher commented on
the fact that the first Episcopal
church in Nelson is built of stone.
He characterized this as unpurralleled
in tho Colonies, nnd as speaking volumes for the earnestness of purpose of
the congregation. It must lie remembered tlfiit the building which has
Jiiiherto done duty .as a ohurch, is ill
reality only a mission room.
Tbe idea of building a suitable
church was mooted nearly two years
ngo, but it wns not until last BDring
that the work- aclualiy commenced.
t Grent credit is due to the Rev. 11.
S. Akehurst for tho untiring perseverance with whioh he hns pushed on
the work, aud also to tlie ladies of the
congregation who bave been unremitting in their efforts to raise the
uceessarv funds.
The building eommitteee was composed of the following gentlemen:
Mesrs. P. Irvine and II. K. Croas-
daile, the ohurch wardens, and also
Messrs. Crease. Gamble, llatiningtoM,
Christie, Newliug, Tlll'tO, Deacon Jowett, Bridges, lieaslc.v. Applewbailo
and Hodge, ami Ihe lighting committee nf Messrs. Newling, Hodge and !���'.
Irvine.
Mr. A. E. Young secured tbe contract for tlie erection of the building,
the price being $8,61)0, but sublet the
stone work. The building lias been
delayed to a eorlain extent by the illness this autumn of Mr. Curtis tbe
architect. Subscriptions have been
coming in fairly well, but tbe
amount necessary to open the church
free of debt has not beon raised, Of
the total amount required about |8, ���
600 has been subscribed, and about $800
more promised, thus about $760 is still
needed, a sum which should be easily
obtained in a city nf the size and
opulence of Nelson. Tho Ladies' Guild
raised about *!J00 towards the providing of new pews.
Several members of the congregation
provided necesary articles of church
���furniture in lieu of or in addition to
cash contributions. Among these are
a curved oak pulpit, whioh is being
built by G. li T. Freeman who is doing nil the carving work in tin
church, presented by Mrs. Day, the
altar given by Mrs. Akehurst. aud the
font, donated by the children of the
congregation, Mr. Nowl ing presented
the acetylene gas engine, by whioh
the church will bo illuminated, and
���the heating apparatus was put in bv
Mr. Ball.
Some disappointment hns been
occasioned by the fact that the windows have, not arrived. This was
occasioned by a misunderstanding wilh
a Spokane firm froia which they hud
been ordered. Mr. Young has now placed
the order wilh a Vancouver llrm. and
he hopes to have them here by Christmas.
The present chancel is only intended
for temporary purposes. Later on,
ns more accommodation is required
and funds flow in. transepts and a permanent channel will lie added.
Before tho offertory in'he coning
Archdeacon Pent real!) made au appeal
to the congregation for funds to clear
off Jtbe indebtedness. He said tlle
ohuroh people of Nelson should rise to
their opportunities. At a mooting of
tlie eominilteo appointed by the Synod
of New Westminster held in Nelson
the draft of the bill of the proposed
new diocese of Kootenay was agreed
to and tliis ohuroh should not only be
the first stono church in Kootenay,
but should eventually become Iho Cathedral,   Ho congratulated the emigre
Then he commenced to open them and
! Parker announced    what the lucky individual hud drawn.
Of course he got the fifty and everyone was surprised and thought he was
a lucky fellow. He also got a ten
dollar and one dollar envelope among
the rest. The bargain wns tbat be
was In immediatel.v bund hack to Ihe
assistant all be bad drawn with the
exception of live dollars which bo wns
to keep for his trouble. Hill tbe mull
knew a Hung or two and rolling up
one five and two ones he handed the
roll quietly to Ihe assistant and then
made slowly for Ihe door. The assistant was a little leary ot the transaction and examined tlie bills. As the
fifty was not muting them he gave
chase and finally ran the man to earth
at bis homo.
J "I Want that fifty dollar bill, "demanded the "Piofessor's" aide-de-
camp.
"You do, do you?" was tbe answer
"Well I don't do business lhat way
Yon just light ont of here or you will
lii't into trouble," and the mini "lit."
Tho "Proferssor" is consequently
out $64 on his deal and will probably
be more careful hereafter in his choice
of the lucky man to draw the fifty
dollar bill 'that never gets near tbe
box in which the public fish for it at
a dollar a cast.
THE DIOCESE OP KOOTENAY.
Tho Conversion   of   Kootenay   Into  n
Separate Diocese is Assured.
The committee appointed to complete
tho details, and, with tho Bishop of
New Westminster's consent, to niak-'
application to the Provincial House
of llio formal formation of the Diocese
Of Kootenay, with the 120th Meridian
as tlie Western and tbe Kinkie.; to Mt
Hood as the Eastern Boundary,
met I'osterdny afternoon to consider
fbe Const section of tlie Committee's
report, with the Archdeacon of Columbia as Chairman of I be joint eirn
iniltee.
The report was adopted with a few
alterations ami agreed tn; so lhat nil
that is now needed in llio Bishop's cm-
-ent, to complete whai is a most
unique proof of ihe importance of the
mining districts of British Columbia.
This result may bo looked upon now
ns attained, ami. the appointment of
(be regular .officials will no doubt be
made early il tbe spring,
'the election of a Bishop depends
up m tlie neces��ary provision being
made, and in the Kooteuays it will
not be long delayed. Until'then tho
new Diocese wi.'l lie iu obnrgo of tho

thus be Bishop of New Westminster

Already shares are moating with n

Toronto, Out., Dec. 15.���Tt is reported that Senator Cox and other
Toronto capitalists have .secured nn
option on Ihe controlling interest in
the .Itimlio mine on Red -Mountain at
Kossland. Should Ibis option lie taken
up another of the Rossland mines
witb immense possibilities will pass
into strong Eastern Canadian bands.
This investment is probably tbe result
of Senator Cox's recent trip through
Kootenay a few months back. The
way in which large amounts of
Eastern capital is being invested in
British Columbia mines bears eloquent witness to the richness of the
mineral resources of tint! country.
The Jumbo is one of tlie oldest locations of the Rossland camp, and a
large amount of work has been done
on it. Those familiar with the mine
are confident tbat that it will make a
big dividend payer, 'iho stock is
now quoted at 46 cents.
* a   *
The London Outlook iu its financial article, says:
"Those who are chary of superlatives tell us that British Columbia is
on tbe eve of big tilings. Wo bave
heard that prediction before, and wo
hnve Fesn lt followed by it season of
persistent llatness. Not that tbe mineral wealth of tbe Province lias ever
been in doubt, but rather that the
moment of a world-wide awakening
to its realities has always been deferred
by some cause or other. What, thou
is the new feature in tbe British Columbia outlook? Tbe accession of the
fuinors Le Roi mine to the Loudon
market.
The paper quoted goes rn to deal
witb the events tbat led up to tho securing of tlie minority shares of tho
Le Roi Company by llio British America Corporation, and adds;
"Lei Ihe Le Roi get ils proper fooling iii the minds of the Investing pnb-
lie here and the district generally
will come into its own. One thing,
however, tho Le Roi proprietors
should tio. The dividends which have
been paid have, we doubl not, been
fully justified, but iu conservative
bands and with a view to Ihe future
Ihe mine should le  shut diwn for six
months, or the ontpui be ot least
greatly restricted, to' permit of thorough nnd  proper  development,   This
done, ami tlie future Ot the mine and
tho Rossland district wonld seem to
be assured.
. "Hut Rosslnud, is, as a sliuly of any
British Columbia mining map will
show, only ono comer of i rioh auriferous British Province, Kossland is
easiest of access and mines llrst; the
resl will follow if British Columbians
and their friends here do not spoil
their future by making too great haste
to be rich. In addition tn the mines
in the immediate neighborhood of
Rossland. thero are some tin or it) miles
to the west with iinmi use denosits of
low-grade ore aud copper in wbat is
known as the Umuiiiarv country.
Tlierr is ti great future before I hat region also. As jt i.-, tho Canadian Pn-
eille Railway is tapping its wealth by
a line of railway tube in operation
next autumn���an extension of the O.i-
ltimiiia & Western Railway from
Robson to Pentiutou on Okanagau
lake. And where the Canadian Paoiflo
Railway Company gnoB the public will
soon follow."

The Rossland Miller say.".: The
Spitzee, in the south belt, whioh has
attracted so muoh intorost lately on
account nf the size nf the lead and its
excellent surface values lias been incorporated by Keinie ly Bros.. & Bin

Chief Gold .Mining Company,. The
capital of the new incorporation will
be $1,000,000 nil 11 liberal share of il
will be set aside for a treasury reserve.
The promoters havo in the post confined most   of   their   efforts Ot the de-
I News comes from Rossland that
itoss Thompson bus taken a HO-day
bond on tho Good Friday, owned by
the Rossland Good Friday Company,
and situated on tho northwest slope of
Red Mountain. Mr. Thompson will
begin the development of the property
about the first of the year. Tho Good

H.   R.   Cameron,
Agent,
Well, here I am again, slightly disfigured, it is true, but still alive.' I've
had an awful time; I've been kicked
aud cuffed aud rolled about in the
snow in a most horrible manner, and
all because I did exactly as I was told
to do. Tbo other day I asked our
friend Phair. tho hotel mail, if there
was any game to bo found within
walking distance of the town. He
took me to the street and pointed to
Toad Mountain.
"Sou go u)i there," be said, "and
you'll find all the game you can carry
hack. The walk will do you good aud
you'll enjoy tha sport. "
I took him at bis word und yesterday I borrowed n gun, bought some
ammunition, riagod myself out in a
suit of elollies Phair said he used to
wear before be became u bloated bondholder and had aceummultited an un-
necessary amount of avoirdupois, and
started up Stanley street. By tbe time
I got to the last house on the hill 1
was nearly dead and compelled lo sit
down anil rest, lint I stuck to it. I
found tiie road 1 bad been told to follow aud between rests traveled on.
At times I was almost persuaded to
turn back, but tbe thought that I
bnd'nt even seen a bird urged mo on.
I was particularly anxious to shoot a
"fool-hen" I bad been told they were
very wild and thut it was but seldom
one could get within range of them. 1
knew that it would be improbable
therefore, that any wonld he found
near the road so I turned on alive-path
which Jed into what I thought was a
wilder country. I slipped and slum-
bled time after time but stuck lo my
tusk. I heard tlle report of what I
presumed was a gun in (be baud of
another hunter and was encouraged
thereby. 1 dreamed of returning with
ul least one, and perhaps two or three
"fool-hens" What a surprise it
would ho to Phair, I thought. I
wonld have him cook them foi my dinner the next   day.
But what was that? 1 was sure I
had heard something in a small growth
of underbrush a short distance away.

It wasn't a bird, ot tbat I was certain. Could it ho a bear? P,.air had
told me that some months ago. Dr. L;t
Ban, of Nelson, had been chased by a
hear, but that tho uninuil bad undoubtedly lclt '.lie country since then

same bear, ami was not sure whether
Hi run, roll or clnnli a tree when a
man appeared through tlie   brush.    As
soon as he saw me he lifetime apparently very much excited. Visions of
wild men passed before me ns he
waved Ins bauds 'Il Ihe air. I.'iiiu lie
hollered "liie" 1 didn't know' whether he wanted me in shoot him or
win liter ho imagined some wild animal was alioul tu devour him, so I
st oil calmly hy and wailed.
"Fire, yon blamed fool, lire!'   be ex-
claimed at Ihe top of his VOiuo, ami ns
he ditl so 1 saw n movement m tlie
brush in mi which he had appeared,

knew I was pounced onto front behind.
As I fell someone kicked me in the
ribs, and a second one jabbed mo in

were black, knew that my nose was

some ol my buties were broken. I
