For the benefit of marines, the London
Field hss revived s remarkable rat story,
to tbe effect thst s rat was caught alive
on baud a British naval vessel in a trap,
and ths beast ws* thrown from Ute trap
Into the water without being killed. A
large gull thst wss following in the wake
of the ship to pick up scrap* of food
thrown overboard by the steward, stopped several timer, endeavoring to pick
the rat up. Once the bird got too close
to the rat's iaws and Uie beast grabbed
it bv the neck. After a short fight Uie
rat succeeded in killing the bird.
When the gull wss dead the rat scrambled upon the bird's body, snd hoisting
one Wing ss a sail and using the other
sr s rudder, succeeded in steering for the
shore. Whether the ret reached shore
or not is tlie question, since the ship
soon got out of sight of the skipper and
its craft. 	
There wss s story told of Mr. Bad-
cliffe, a fox-hunting parson in Devon
shaire. The Bishop of Exeter (Dr.
Pilpotts) came one dsy to visit him
without notice. Parson Kadcliffe, in
scarlet, was just about to mount his
horse and gallop off to the meet, when
he heard that the Bishop was in the
village. He had barely time to send
away his hunter, run upstairs, and
jump, red coat and boots, into bed.when
the Bishops carriage drew up at the
door. "Tell his lordship I'm ill, will
ve?" was his injunction to his housekeeper, as he flew to bed.
"Is Mr. Radcliffe in?"asked Dr. Phil-
"He's il) and in bed," asid the house-
"Dear me! I am so sorry. Pray ask
if I may come up snd sit with him, ssid
the Bishop. ,    ,
The housekeeper rsn up stairs in sore
dismay, and entered the parson s room.

SANDON.   B. C  MARCH 5, 1898
Last week Representative James
Hamilton Lewis returned to Washing
ton from Ottawa, where he had
spent several days in conference with
the Dominion government leaders.
His mission was to appeal to this
government for some modifications of
the Canadian regulations requiring
American miners bound for the Klondike to -procure their licensee at Vancouver, " Victoria or Dawson City.
Mr. Lewis sought to have the regulation modified so tbat a license could
be issued by British consuls or vice
consuls at American ports. Failing
in this, he then sought to have the
Canadian police, especially at Lake
Tagish, given authority to issue
licenses to ingoing miners. This request was also refused.
Minister Sifton proposed a counter
proposition on a basis of adjustment,
which was in effect; to permit Canadian goods to go through Wrangel
in bond. To this Mr. Lewis answered
that he was net given authority to
negotiate on any basis involvings
modification of the United States laws
or regulations.
The failure of Mr. Lewis to secure
any concessions from Canada might
have been expected. On the face of
it his mission was g foolish one. To
ask that Canadian laws be modified
to accommodate American miners,
and vet not having power to negotiate
on any basis looking to the modifies
tion of American laws to accommodate Canadian miners, was a remarkable piece of Yankey ingenuity���in
other words, gall. But Mr. Lewis
learned a lesson that it would be well
Ibr other American diplomats to
learn. He found there was no disposition on the part of Canadians to
concede anything to the United
States In the controversy without receiving as much In return.
Mr. Lewis was shown every courtesy while in Ottawa, out was received with a cold hard when he
made hb mission known and attempted to force a consideration of his
propositions. If he came to Ottawa
thinking that Canada would longer
bear American imposition he went
away with that idea knocked into a
cocked hat The delegations from
British Columbia were bitter in their
protests against any modification of
tbe regulations, and this fact alone
ought to convince Mr. Lewis and his
countrymen that, while we are ever
ready to extend a friendly hand to
any country helping to develop the
vb��*\ resources oCour land, yet we are
not ready, and do hot have to, make
to make to us. If the United States
Is not ready to give anything, then
ought Canada to be of the same disposition.
The commercial movement of silver
during the year lately closed showed
an increase rather than a decrease in
volume, and the demand fbr the
metal showed less diminution than
the fluctuations in its price would in
dicate. The exports to the East, always the great customer for silver,
wei-e greater in 1897 than in 1896;
and from some European countries
there waa an unusual demand. As a
very large part of the silver output
of the world is handled through London, we give first tbe following table,
which shows the imports and exports
of silver in Great Britain for 1897,
compared with tbe preceding year;
the figures are from the statement of
the Board of Trade for the year:

that country. ���       	
While China took less silver from j
London last year than In 1896, there
was real I v little or no decrease in the
total al-sorhed by that country. The
decrease in tbe British shipments was

It appears from this table that the
United States is the chief sonree of
supply, furnishing more than hall tiie
silver which goes into the London
market. A considerable part of this,
however, is really Mexican silver,
which was refined and pot into merchantable fbrm in this country. A
peculiar feature in 1897 is found in
the heavy receipts from France and
Belgium; it is probable that a con
siderable part of the metal credited
to the latter country was really from
Germany, sent to London through the
port of Antwerp, and the large quan
tity suggests the truth of the report
current last summer that Germany
was quietly msrketlng some ofthe
accumulated stocks of old silver.
In the exports to European countries, the large quantity sent to Russia in 1897 Is accounted fbr by the
heavy purchases made by that coon
try for coinage into silver roubles, in
preparation for the adoption of the
new monetary system in that country
The decrease in shipments to France
in 1897 was chiefly due to the (act
that a much smaller coinage was executed in that country fbr its Eastern
colonies than in 18%.
As to the Eastern demand, It is to
be noted that India took a great deal
more diver last year than in 1896. in
spite ofthe supposed loss of purchasing power on account of famine, short
crops, and light exports. This was
due chiefly to the high exchange
value of the rupee, which was
throughout far above its bullion vslua
Native buying in India was stimu-

There waa sn acrimonious debate in

s resoluUon which tbe opposition
brought in, striving to condemn the premier snd Pooley, president of the council, for having sllowed Uieir names to be
used in the directorate of the Uawaon
City snd Dominion Trading Corporation.
Sword, of Dewdney, brought in a resolution to Uiis effect, but it wss ruled out of
order by the speaker on the ground that
it would, if pttaeed, prejudice the fstr
trial of libel suits which the two mini -
ters hsve brought against two local
newspapers, who charged Utem with
using their official position* for their own
private ends. Kennedy, of Westminster, then brought in a resolution to the
effect that in tbe opinion of the house
none of the members should at anv Urns
lend the weight of their official titles to
floating sny schemes for the benefit of
any company.
The most recently compiled directory
of the province of British Columbia
shows a white population of 117,850 of
which 78.500 are credited to the mainland and 88,500 to Vancouver Island.
This is an increase of 100 per cent: In
four years. Vancouver I si arid with
one-fourth of the total population of the
province baa 14 out of the 88 members
of the Legislature.
In an article commenting on the above
figures the Rossland Miner suggests
that West Kootenay be divided ss follows :
1. The Trsil Creek electoral district
to consist of the towns of Rossland and
Trail and what is known as the Trail
mining division.
2. Nelson electoral district, to include
-what is now known ss the Nelson and
Gost river mining divisions.
8. Kaslo electoral district, to include
tbe city of Ksslo, towns of Ainsworth
and Pilot Bay and what is known as
the Ainsworth mining division.
4. The Slocan electoral district to include what is known as the Slocan mining division.
5. The Revelstoke electoral district to
include what ts known as the Revelstoke, Illecillewait and Trout Lake
electoral division*.
The above division would give West
Kootenay five members instead of two
as at present.

J. D. Devereux.theapecial correspondent of the Ashcroft (B.C.) Mining Journal, writes to thst paper from the far
north concerning Cassiar mines. He
says in part:
"I have seen ore from IS claim* in the
Kisgsgssh district which sll looked to
lie very highly mineralised. Some of it
is* known to run ss high ss $200 to $300
to the ton in gold alone, and, by information given me bv the miners, the cream
of the country is not touched yet, Uttle
or nothing is known shout the wealth of
thia country by ths outside wo-Id.
Within Uie past five years 1 venture to
ssy thst gSW.000 has been taken out of
this country by individual miners, mostly Chinese.
The company working the Morning
has three men drifting from the 100-foot
level at the bottom of the shaft. Thev
have struck a body of ore ou the foot
wall carrying galena, carbonate copper,
and su I *-hide silver. The ore averages
12 inches and with the ore on the hanging wall makes about two feet. It looks
as though the whole ledge would soon
be in ore. Tho ore is nearly all concentrating. Several other claims are
lieing developed on Morning hill this

The effect of such a measure would

The Pilot llay smelter made a short

touched at Trail.
The only solution ol Uie trouble
lies in following the example of the
United States by raising the duty to
their standard. This would preserve
the Canadian market for Canadian
lead, and bring into existence home
smelters, factories, refineries and

thousands of people in Canada.

Opposite Bryan Hon***, Btma Ave.. 8audos
fttt Raihcau Deal.
Messrs. Mann and Mackenaie seem
to have made a very satisfactory eon
tract with the government to build
the Stickeen railway���satisfactory
to Messrs. Mann and Mackenaie���but
how it will strike the people of Can
ada remains to be seen. The newspapers of the Dominion will have a
great dnal to do with forming public
opinion, favorable or otherwise, oo
this aa on all other matters, and it is
their duty to see thai the facts are
published irrespective of which
party is shown to have the better of
tiie bargain, tt the government has
matte a contract, aa Mr. Blair maintains, that is of great advantage to
the people, without sacrittcing a cent
of money, they should be credited
tor their -Aurewedness iu doing something heretofore unbeani of in the
annals of govennental dealings with
railways. It, on the other hand, it
is shown that Mr. Blair has given
Mann and Mackenaie twenty five
thousand acres of land per mile to
construct a road that only costs five
or mix thousand dollars per mil*5*, the
people are entitled to know it, and it
is tbe business of the press to make
the facts public. We think that
Maun and Mackenaie, as usual, have
made a niee tiring out of it. Possibly
seme members of tbe government
have a finger in the pie. We don't
my they have, but possibly they
have; audi things have happened.
And we don't know why the government was under any necessity of
giving away this railroad, any wsy.
Why tiie government, now as always in the prst, should feel that it
was in duty bound to make contractors and promotes-* a handsome present every time a railroad is projected
is more than we can understand.
This particular deal is enveloped in
political mist at present, just as such
deals always are, in order that the
people may not be ante to get at the
truth too readily, but from what we
can learn Maim and Mackenaie are
getting tood subsidies -valued at a
km estimate at 185,000 per mile for
buildings railway that will not cost
mora than $10,000 per mile at most.
We do not pretend to nave the ability
ofa minister of finance, nor a minister of railways and canals, but to
the "common luller" tills looks very
much as If Mann and Mackenzie
were not only receiving gratis the
only railway that can penetrate the
Toukon country for five years, but
in addition are getting 115,000 per
mile, Or approximately, 12,000,000.
Aaan additional present fbr being
kind enough to accept the first,
Mann and Mackenzie in order to
construct thb road must first finance
the scheme. Thb means going to
London and bonding the land for
probably 75c or $1 per acre. This
they will have no trouble ih ioing,
as the land ther are receiving Is
probably the richest In tbe Dominion
and if them b -never a cent's worth
of mineral taken oat of the eountry
the timber alone will more than pay
them for every cent put into tbe
Why the government did not borrow a couple of million dollars and
build the road itself and thus save
the 15,000,000 is one of the tilings It
takes a minister of railways to explain. The claim that the road will
cost $3^000 a mile, which the gov
ernmeot organs wish to impress upon
the people b only m plain ui.truth.
Mr. Duehesney, a man whose knowledge of railway construction b not
excelled in Canada, and, by the way,
wbo b the only engineer who bas
gone over tbe proposed route, mid
when he returned from hb trip "that
there were practically no difficulties
to overcome."
