of 1883 it was cut in two, the north-
west portion retaining the old name
and the remainder, with some Mus-
koka municipalities added, was made
into the new constituency of East Simcoe. The present North Simcoe is only
half of the old one, and it was constituted as it is in order to make a safe
Tory seat for Mr. McCarthy. There
was little credit in being able to uold
it in tbo subsequent elections. His
largo majority in 1890 is accounted
for by his having two opponents, a
Conservative and a Liberal, himself
running us an Independent. As he was
the great Protestant champion in
the agitation over the Manitoba

immoderate religious prejudices be
was successful in creating. Mr. Leigh-
ton McCarthy's majority the other
day is very nearly the normal Tory
majority of the gerrymandered constituency.
When Mr. Dalton McCarthy obtained
his new political light in 1898 and 1894,
und experienced a change of heart, he
had the grace to publicly repent of his
share in the gerrymander of 1882.

wish for legislation that would make
it impossible. Our contempor

Spokane Spokesman-Review, whioh
replies in part as follows:
"There is an easy way to even up
tbe score. Just across the line in Washington are other 'mountain latent
resources' and enough is known to assure their great extent and richness.
The neighborly people of Washington
are inviting their Canadian friends to
come over and take a hand at their
'impoverishment' and the invitation is
being aocepted by Toronto men who
know a good thing and stand ready to
go after it. We hope those enterprising Toronto investors will make
millions out of their investments; and
if they are successful we shall expect
them to give the I euefit of their enterprise to their home city. We should
like it of course if they could see
their way clear to pulling up stakes
and removing to Spokane, but there
will be no scolding here if they do not,
because it is natural and right and
commendable that progressive and enterprising citizens should stand hy
tbeir home town, whether it be in
Canada or the United States. "
This is very brave and very generous. But the Spokane paper does not
go on to tell that those refreshingly
liberal laws of Washiugton do not permit Canadians to own nnd operate
mines in that State, unless they declare tbeir intention to become citizens of tbe United States and renounce
their allegiance to the British flag.
We think the Vancouver paper haB
raised a foolish objection to tbe employment of Amerioan enterprise in
dereloping Canadian industries, but
it is wisdom and common sense in
the highest degree in comparison with
the selfish and nnneighborly policy
adopted by the mining States of the
adjoining Republic It is possible to
make ont a case of some little plausibility against a liberality that permits
foreigners to exploit our resources for
tbeir personal enjoyment beyond the
bounds of Canada, but only on the nar
rawest and most selfish grounds can
anyone attempt to justify n provision
in the mining laws of Washington
whioh refuses to loyal Canadian citizens the privilege to own a mining
property in that State. It is cheap
generosity on the part of the Spokane
paper to hold out a welcome to people
whom its laws proscribe, except ou
the distasteful condition that they surrender tbeir rights as British subjects.
Of the five Domiuion by-eleotions
held the other day, two of them were
occasioned by death; the other three
by appointments to judgeships and
the Senate. It used to be a fine old
Liberal policy to disclaim against the
practice of appointing members to
office; but as Mr. Duncan O. Fraser
explained to his friends in Vancouver
a short time ago, one never knows on
the left of the Speaker what he may
have to do when he moveB over to the
right.

EDITORIAL COMMENT-
(East Kootenay Miner. )
The increased attention that is beiug given to British Columbia by the
Eastern newspapers is a source of much
gratification to the people of this
Province. At one time it was the exception rather than the rule to find
anything in an Eastern newspaper
about British Columbia. All the big
Eastern dailies print columns about
the wonderful resources of the Pacific
Province nnd its people.
NORTH SIMCOE.
In publishing the returns of the
recent by-election in North Simcoe,
some of the newspapers, for purposes
of comparison, give the figures for
former elections, extending back to
the first contest after Confederation.
In 1867, we are informed, the late Mr.
MoOonkey was roturned unopposed.
In 1872, Mr. H. H. Cook, Liberal,
was eleoted over Mr. Dalton McCarthy by a majority of 76, and being
unseated again defeated him in 1874
by 154 of a majority. Unseated a second time, he beat the same opponent
by 74. Notwithstanding his three
defeats, Mr. McCarthy comes forward
tbe fourth time in 1878, having served
two sessions in tho meanitme as member for Cardwell in succossion to tbe
late John Hilliard Cameron. He left
that safe seat to once more try conclusions with his old antagonist. It was
the year of the protectionist wave,
and he was successful, beating Mr.
Cook by a majority of 50. It is ex
plained that he "held the seat until
his dealh by theso majorities: 1882,
850; 1887, 829;1891, 296, aud 1896, 1,107.
This latter is misleading. Mr. McCarthy certainly hold North Simcoe,
but the North Simcoe of 1882 and
since is uot the North Simcoe of the
old Oook   days.   In  tho  gerrymander

SEVEEAL OASES  YESTERDAY
I'OEE JUDGE FORIN.
BE-
Action on a Foreign Judgment Recovered
in the United States���Suit
for Salary.
Tho first case heard hy His Honor
Judge Forin at the present sitting of
the County Court wus thut of Arthur
vs. Hnstie in whioh the plaintiff
brought notion on n foreign jadgmeut
recovorotl in tho United States. Tho
Judgment was proved by the production of n certified copy, but His
Honor held that the identity of the
parties must also lie specifically
proved. As the defendant; went to
Spokane ou yesterday rooming's train
this was difficult to do, so the case
wns ndjouruned to Chambers for proof
on this point. Mr. R. M. Macdonald
appeared for the plaintiff, aud Mr.
W. A. Macdouuld, Q. C., for the defense.
Iu tho case of Cross vs. Williamson
aud Holt?,, the plaintiff was suing for
balance of his salary ns bookkeeper for
the defendants and Mr. Byron who
owned tbe Fidelity claim, but tho latter had paid his share. Tlie defense
claimed that they were released from
liability by a clause iii an agreement
between tho parties, but the plaintiff
stated that the defendants had broken
their part of the'agreement nud so
he was not bound thereby. After
Mr. Byron bad testified ou behalf of
the plaintiff, the ease was enlarged
until Friday for further argument.
Mr. R. M. Macdonald appeared tor
tho plaintiff, and Messrs W. A. Macdonald Q. 0., aud E. A. Crease for
the defense.
The case of D. Arthur vs. E. Burns
wns compromised after the evidence
had been taken, Mr. E. A. Crease representing the plaintiff and Mr. S. S.
Taylor for tbe defendant.
The caso of Sayward vs. E. Burns
wns an action for the price of lumber
delivered. Tlie case was enlarged
to admit of the evidence of one Williams to be taken on commission.
Mr. P. E. Wilson appearod for tlie
plaintiff, and Mr. R. M. Macdonald
for the defense.
The rest of tho day was occupied in
hearing the case of (j. O. Buchanan
vs. Kano. This was an action for the
price of lumber delivered, tho defendant counter claiming for money
due him for towage.
The evidence was concluded whou
tho court rose, and the case will be
oontiuued today at HUM, Mr. N. F.
McKay of Kaslo. appearod for Mr
Buchanan, nnd Mr. (i. E. Martin of
tho samo city for Captain Kano.
Tho case of Howe vs. Callaghau
was adjourned until the next sittings
of the Court.
ABOUT THE WEATHER.
Metreorologoai Observer A, H. Hol-
ich bemoaned the fact last evening
that ho doos not receive telegraphic
reports that would indicate to him,
and through him to tlie public, just
what kind cf weather might be expected.
Not that tho telegrams would bo any
good" ho snid last evening, "for in
a mountainous district it is impossible to predict with any degree of accuracy, but it would bo comforting to
know what kind of weather we
would havo if the conditions were not
against us having it. There is a great
deal of comfort in Old Prnbs even if
he isn't reliable.
"I work on theories, I think it will
be mild for a couple of days and then
there will be another cold snap. Tbe
barometer and tberomometer are ris-
ing, the former indicating that wo will
havo a spell of clear weather. It is
snowing now but I don't pay any attention to that. It shouldn't be as it
is not according to my theories, therefore, it practically is not snowing. In
making woathor calculations facts
must not bo allowed to interofore. "

route through the valley of the Columbia, Canoe and Parsnip rivers to a
point at or ou tbo Laird River or westerly to Atlin Lake.
From Cranbrook to Goldeu by the
most feasible route.
Then there is a lino to commence at
a point near the outlet of Kamloops
lake to penetrate by devious ways and
many to Atlin Lake, with a branch���
if they like the job���to Teslin Lake.
Another starts at Crater Lake in
the Cassiar aud penetrates to Lake
Bennett. It aims, too, to attach all
the decorations, such as side���tracks,
turnouts, wharves, ferries, coal bunkers, etc.
And yet another, oh thrice lucky
Cassiar, to havo its origin in the dim
uncertainty of Quesnelle Forks to nu
equally ambiguous point at or uear
Hazel ton.
Again hnvo we a supplication,
couched in tbe tenderest of legal English, for power to ereot, build, maintain (and keep stowed away m a pigeon hole) a lino from Kitamaat Inlet
north to Copper River, and east to
Telegraph trail, south aud east to
outli end of Bubine lake, thence north
and east to Oermauson Creek at or
near its confluence with the Ominuca
River.
Cassiar at the bat again Willi a proposition to equip and embellish a line
from Taku Arm aloug the valley of
the AMin-too river to a convenient
point near whero tbe said Atliu-too
flows from Atlin lake.
Then Lytton is shot from tho trap
and lands smiliug with a proposal to
build a liuo from a point at or near
the C. P. R. near Lytton up the Eraser River to a point at or near tho
mouth of the Quesnelle river.
At this point Fort Simpson forgis
bravely up with a request to be allowed to construct a railway either
standard gunge or narrow gunge, from
a point at or uear Fort Simpson by
tho briefest and most feasible route
to a point at or near Glonora or Telegraph Creek.
Then the British Columbia Yukon
Railway Company applies for leave to
change its mind regarding its charter and desires increased powers in
order to construct, acquire, equip and
maintain a branch from a poiut on
tho line of the British Columbin-Yu-
kou to a poiut on the Taku Arm of
Tagieh Lake.
Then again comes the much courted
Atliu Lake with another string to her
bow in the shnpo aud taking on tho
lineaments of a line from a point at
or near the International Boundary
line, on the headwaters of Taku Inlet
by tbo most fonsible route to Atlin
Lake with powers to extend to Tngisli
Lako or Lako Bennett.
And lastly tne most pretentions of
them all, under tlie name of the Northern and Yukon Railway Company,
wishes to get up in the morning and
from a poiut at or near Vancouver,
penetrate to the northern boundary
of British Columbia taking in, by the
way, Seymour Creek, Squamisii Valley, Pembortou Meadows, Lillooet,
Quesnelle and Hamilton. If the process is agreeable then branch lines to

Slooan Oity, Deo. 31. ���(Special to
The Miner).���Apropos of the strike
recently made in the Two Friends
mine hero, A. E. Teeter, one of
the lessees of the Bank of England
claim, who has just returned from tho
mine, reports thut tho ledge is shown
now to be fully threo feet in width,
and he thinks that the foot wall has
not been enoountered yet. The ore in
the three feet now driven through lies
in three Btreaks, aggregating fully
ono foot of solid- ore, which has the
appearance of being high grade, aud
he also expressed tho belief that larger
ohutes exist ou the foot wall. His
brother, Mr. E. M. Toeter, feels
gratified to learn that his judgment is confirmed and has wired his
congratulation from his homo in Iowa.
Mr. E. M. Teeter is part owner
in the Howard Fraction, the Golden
Wedge group, the Hoodoo, Free Gold
and several othor valuable claims, uud
has beon actively engaged iu mining
for upwards of 20 years, hut recently
removed to Iowa taking his family to
thu old parental homestead there,
thinking that the peace aud quietness
of a pastoral life would add to the
happiness of his family aud himself.
He left all bis business affairs in British Columbia in the hands of his
brother, Mr. A. E. Teetor, who is also
a mining mau of experience and is
closely identified with mining in this
locality, being manager and part owner of the first shipping mine iu this lucidity, the Howard Fraction, and also
the first shipping minu ou Ten Mile
Creek tho Kalispell.
* *   *
Tho California this week will bo
added to the list of shipping mines of
the vicinity, tho management having
decided to make two shipments iu
the next day or so. The ore will be
ruwhided down to the Hall Mines
wagon road, und thou hauled ou
sleight to tho smelter. There are U00
or !I00 tons of shipping ore in sight.
Work on the drift frm the main tuunel
is still beiug prosecuted.
* *   *   *
Work is being actively pushed on
the Granite and Royal Canadian
tniups. The big double compartment
ihaft is now down Kill feet.
# a   a
In the Nelson-Poorman mine the
management is making an upruiBe
from the lower lovel to the main workings of the mine. Tho lower tuunel
will gain a depth of 800 feet on the
vein, aud if at that depth the ore retains its freo .milling qualities, tho
property will be immensely valuable.
Not only the Poorninn management
but the owners ofother properties in
the vicinity are awaiting the results of
the work with great interest The
Hoynl Canadian, for instance, has
the same vein as the Poorman. At
present a gang of eight mon aro ut
work on the propsrty. The mill is
abut down at present, owing   to lack
of water.
* ��   *
At Ymir both the Tamarac and the
Black Cock are shipping regularly.
The latter property is under lease to
Frank Davey, who hus sunk u good
deul of money in the property. His
enterprise hus been rewarded, however, for he is gouerally credited with
having struok it rich. At nnv rate he
is shipping ore to the Northport
Smoltor at the rute of 20 tons a day.
��� *   ���
J. J. Walker, oditor of the Freeman's
iiiibor Journal, of Spokane, wus in
the city yesterday on his way home
from Ainsworth whero he has been Inspecting the work dono ou the Albion
aud other mineral claims in whioh he
le  interested.   He   says   the  mining
properties   noar   Ainsworth will   ship
considerable oro next year.
# #   *
Tbe Ropublic Pioneer of Saturday
last says:
Strikes and rumors of strikes!  I  !
But most of the reports are of genuine development of merit!!
Morning Glory has made a strike
that has sot the camp iu a flutter and
made Spokane wild. Tho strike was
made iu the shaft recently started, and
although but little depth has been
reached, extraordinary rich ore has
been encountered.
In the ledge there iB IS inches of ore
that runs into the hundreds. A 80-
pound sample taken out last uight by
Hurley Armstrong gave over $000 iu
value. This sample wus from the
whole face of the rich 18 inches. Six
feet of the ledge runs $00. The lodge
hus well defined walls aud it looks
ns though the rich ore continued
dowu. The ledge has nearly an east
and west trend. A new phase has
been put upon the mining situation in
that part of the belt.
It is believed the Lone Pino has en
countered a new pay chute of groat
possibilities. Surface prospecting has
been done on the north aud south
ledge with results that aro more than.
satisfactory. Assays ruu high and the
ledge as cut is wide. The news hns
been received with delight by the
stockholders and the stock has advanced in consequence.
Development is nctive all along the
line, as the following summary shows.
# *   *
The Mongolia nnd Copnerapolis
properties in the Copper Camp, soven
miles from Greenwood City nnd adjoining the famous King Solomon
mine have been bonded by Henry Bre-
lion, representing Wilson Bros. The
deal was put through by C. E. Fordo.
The prico bus not been announced but
it is believed to be between $50,000
and $7f>,000. Negotiations have been
going on for the purchase of the Big
Copper mine which adjoins these properties but the bonding of the two
loaves the Big Copper average so
small that the deal will hardly go
through. A staff of men will be put
on the Mongolia and Copperapolis as
soon as the preliminaries of the trans-
fere are completed, uud the work will
be actively pushed. Both the properties have nn extraordinary lead and
the oro shows up very rich as the
mines are on the main lead nf the
Copper Camp. With tho work on
theso two mines being pushed rapidly,
iu addition tn tho activity on the King
Solomon, things nround Groeuwood
City should learn Mr. Fordo hud nn
export come out from England to examine the Big Copper and extensions,
but owing to difficulties with the
proprietors of the Big Copper, the
deal was not put through. Had it.
English oupittil might hnve been in
the Greenwood Camp much earlier.
* *   *
"If British Columbia is not represented at tho Earl Court Exhibition
in England next summer it will be
a most unfortunate thing " said a
prominent mining man to The Miner
yesterday. "The exhibition takes
place from May until October and all
tho Colonies of the British Empire
will have mineral displays. I hear
that B. C. has iecideri to have nothing to do with the exhibition. For
the life of me I cannot see tho wisdom of udoptiug such u course and
missing un opportunity to give this
country some excellent advertising
which it needs badly. It is arrant
folly to think of not being represented
tit an exhibition where all the other
colonies show their mineral wealth to
British cnpitnl. It is British cnpilul
we must look to to develop this country nnd no opportunity to impress our
richness ou the monied men of London
should be missed. Where are our Bnnrds
of Trade and other bodies that should
look after such interests? We must
be represented nt that exhibition and
the sooner we realizo this, aud impress
it upon the government, the better."

FIRST TRIAL

make a life long customer.
Wo don't offer our goods below cost,
because wo have no desire to lose
money. We sell at prices which are
sufficient to pay for good material and
good workmanship. The fiize and variety of our stock enables us to please a
customer both aa to stylo and fit. Indeed wo nre particular on these points.
We rather lose a Hale than permit unsatisfactory garments to leave the
store.
Theso values cannot be surpassed.
