Sheriff Robinson resigned his position aa Sheriff of Kootenay last Monday. It appears that his reasons tor
so doing were lack of remuneration,
and an attempt on the psrt ot the
Attorney-General to have him appoint a deputy for Kaalo. This last,

to Mr. Robinson, who said he could
easily attend to all Kaslo business
himself, and besides did not think

C. P. R. oa. K. B, & N.
When the C. P. R. secured its
cb tr er for the Cp'ow'b Nest road, the
p i icttkre ot the deal appeared in
p- eUy nearly every newspaper in
C.nada. By that deal the company
Cot about 50 per cent of the coat of
tire road as a cash subsidy, and some
50,CJO acres of the most valuable un-
develojpcd coat lands on earth. This
coal land, by the way, never went
to the railway comj-any at all, but
we.e absorbed by* the gang who
manipulated the deal.
About the only things that the
C. P. R. agreed to" do iu return was
to employ no alien labor, to supply
Kootenay with cheap coal and to
allow running powers over the (J. N.
Ry. io any other road that applied
for that privilege.
That )>art of tlie agreement respecting alien labor might as well have
been left oiu altogether as it was ig
nored from the first. The superintendent of the construction was an
American, the majority of the workmen were 'dagoes', arid where Can-
adan* were employed someone
should have gotten twenty years for
the way they were treated.
Lelhbridge coal is being brought
iirio Kootenay and sold for the same
price as the Crow's Nest product,
notwithstanding that it is hauled
nearly 200 miles farther over the
same road.
Previous lo the time th.it the Dominion government ratified the
.Crow's Nest deal. Geo. Alexander, of
the International Navigation Com
pany, and G. A. Keefer applied for
anHsecured a charter from the Provincial government for the Nelson A
BtuHngion, or Kootenai Valley road
as that portion of it on the other side
of the line was called. The right of
way tor this road was surveyed and
planed. When the Crow's Nest
raid was built thirteen miles of this
right of way was used by that company.
Tire Kootenay Railway & Navigation Company i-s now applying for
running powers for the Nelson A
Bedlington portion of the system over
this thirteen miles.
Judge Clark, solicitor for the C P.
R., recently argued before the Privy
council that the C. N. Ry was under
no obligation to the K. R. A N., contending tnat the use of this portion
of the Crow's Nest line by the Nelson
A Bedlington would produce a confusion as to the cost ot maintenance;
also that the K. R. A N. has plenty
ot room to parallel the C. P. R. for
the distance.
Tbe management of the K. R. A
N. claim that there is not room for
two tracks on the right of way mentioned; and they enquire what this
has to do with the case, anyway.
They would also like to know by
what right, if there were room for
two roads as Judge (/lark contends,
the Crow's Nest road stole the right
ot way of the Nelson A Bedlington.
In other words, the Canadian Pacific is trying to refuse to permit the
K. R. A N. to use a piece ot the
Crow's Nest track, tbe right of way
of which they stole from the people
who now make the request.
It seems that the Dominion government gave 13,000,003 cash and
the most valuable mineral asset in
Canada for something they did not
Copper Stocks Are Fashionable.
Tire recent advances in tbe meta*
market, and consequent bullish
speculative movement of many min
ing stocks, notably copper properties,
have spread their influence over
wide areas. According to a despatch
from London, the fashionable ladles
of the world's metropolis have caught
the lever of mining stock gambling,
and if the report is to be trusted their
dabbling has been profitable. The
despatch referred to says: 'Reginald

The following is tho text of a letter
written by Hon.-Joseph Martin,  Attorney-General of this Province, to K
L. Richardson, MP., of Winnipeg, re
the Kettle River Valley railway charter:
My ifbar Richardson,���Yours of the
8th instant at hand. 1 would b�� verv
sorry to learn that the Winnipeg board
of trade had made any such recommendation as you suggest. It seems to
me that there is really no argument in
favor of preventing any capitalist,
American or Canadian, from building
railroads in Canada, if he wishes tu do
so without any cost to the publie. It is,
1 think, the first time in the history ot
t bonds that the Dominion Parliament
have deliberately excluded a railway
in au unoccupied* territory under cif
cum>lauce* Much as have existed in the
Boultd*ry Creek district. Tne fact that
rhe Canadian Paeilic are building into
tUe country does not, it appears to me,
afford any excuse wnausver tor tin-
exclusion of the Corblii road. Ail the
other ports of the Kootenay are now in
possession of railway competition, and
it is intended by the course heretofore
pursued tp> prevent the Boundary i reek
district from reaping the benefit of thai
competition. V\ hen it is remembered
that the Canadian Pacific owns the only
smelter available for the purpose oi
developing that district, you can under
stand wli.u a terrible blow it is to rhe
mining interest there to lie absolutely
in the power of tin'company. On the
other hand, if the Corbin road gets in,
not only will rhe district have railway
competition, but also smelter compeli
Ibm. The fact that the ores are Sent tp>
the Dntted Beaten to be smelted seem*
ro me to cut no figure whatever in thi*
controversy. It makes me tired to hear
an argument like rids produced when it
is well known that it would Ih* very
much to the advantage of Canada to
have more trade with the United States

The body of Donato Cassado  was
found lying in the snow by the side of
the Brooklyn wagon road, six miles
from Cascade, on February 22.   The
man bad evidently been murdered fully
a month bafore, as the evidence at the
inquest showed.   There was a  deep
gash behind tbe ear and another cut
under the chin, one thumb was badly
slashed and the general appearance of
of the corpse  made  it apparent that
Cassado had made a desperate struggle
for life.   Cassado  had  been working
with his partner Tony for a sub contractor who had station work for J. G.
McLean & Co.   Cassado had left about
January 7, and it was understood that
he had quite a  sum of money on his
person and was intending to go home
to   Italy.    Apparently  he  had   been
killed for his money,as his clothes were
disarranged as if  his body had been
searched    It seems as if the murderer
had struck  him on the head with a
cleaver or heavy knife, and while endeavoring to defend himself had been
cut in the hand, the second gash in the
head being given as a finisher.
Money to the amount of $8 was found
on the body, evidently overlooked by
the murderer when he searched his
victim after the killing. Even Cassado 'a

The body escaped observation for so

SANDON. B.C., MARCH 11, 1899
A new cure hss been found for
pneumonia. We wish some scientist
would discover a remedy that will
be sure death to the microbe called
hard times. Our office is full of them
jUBtnw. Some people have tried
whiskey for the trouble, bnt it is only
a momentary cure. It drives the
microbes away for a few hours but
they invariably come back again
with all their relations. We have
seen the disease cured by people paying up their subscriptions, but then
that was long, long sgo and may
only have been a dream.
The doing sway of horse hire tor
constables by our brainy local Legisla
ture is a great benefit to outlaws.
While our lean and worthy Provincial
police are following the villains on
toot, the villains can get across the
border unmolested. This saves the
expense ot keeping them in jail.
People naturally .object to being
robbed, but tbey have the satisfaction
of knowing that our present police
system encoumges outlaws, enabling
them to make a living with less risk
than In the past
The present Government of this
glorious Province might be more
economical than they really are.
Their reckless extravagance in
paying some of their mining recorders $40 and $50 a month is enough to
'fill even a tenderfoot with amazement.
Such salaries are truly wonderful in
a country where scenery can be had
for every meal and water runs down
On the first ot this month Revelstoke discarded its short pants and
became a city.
The Toronto Telegram has the fol
lowing to say about the editor of this

Mr. Lowery has upheld the flag of

writings which make the Ledge the

If tbey say the above about us in
Toronto, what would they have said
if we had strayed further from home.
Such kind remarks sre pleasant to
take, and we regret that hanks will
not accept them as collateral.   If
they only would our blue eyes would

There has always been a law
against gambling in B. C, but the
following section has just been added
to the Provincial law relating to
hotels and saloons:
"Every holder of a retail liquor
l-cence who allows the gambling
games known as draw poker, stud
poker, black jack, faro, or any other
games of chance to be played for
monev or for checks, or other devices
thst represent money, in or on sny
part of his premises, to which the
guests or the public have access, is
guilty of an offence, and liable, on
summary conviction before a county
court judge, stipendiary magistrate,
or two justices of the peace, to a
penalty not exceeding one hundred
dollars, nor less than twenty
dollars, for the first offence, and not
exceeding two hundred dollars, nor
less than one hundred dollars for the
second offence, and in defanlt of payment to imprisonment for a term not
exceeding three months, and in case
of the holder of a liquor license being
convicted, a third time the license to
be cancelled."
As gambling has been the principal
revenue of many saloons in the past
it will strike a blow at an important
means ct revenue to many people.
It is not likely that the law will be
enforced to any extent hut it will
have a tendency to drive all the
poker and other fiends into secret
places while the army of rubbernecks
cannot play cheap hands, and the
songs, Hit Me! I'm Fat! That's the
Baby! will be sung in whispers.
A few of the Provincial newspapers
are still subscribed for by the B. C.
Government. This seems like a
waste of money as most of the members are so highly educated that com
mon papers are of no use to them.
We know they sre highly educated
by the legislation they pass. It requires a Greek scholar to understand
some of their acts, and occasionally a
law bobs up that even Greek cannot
assay. Verily, there are some things
that pass all understanding.

Geo. K. Lewis Telia of His Ksperlenees
la the Mlnlnc Kegrons.
George E. Lewis, a noted hunter,
trapper, and mountaineer from his early
boyhood, returned a tew days ago from
a perilous Journey, full of adventure,
though tbe unexplored regious of the
North-West Territory, of the Dominion
of Canada, and is now resting with his
relatives at Tiburon, says the San Fran
cisco Chronicle.
He went to Idaho, Montana, British
Columbia, followed new iniuiiur discoveries, and made his way to Kootenay, then drifting north to tho Blue
lurry river, and remained in that
seii ion for several yearn. In July,
1867, he met with an accident which
made it necessary for him to be brought
to San Francisco for treatment in
March, !�����**. he went back to Caribou
and started out with a party of hunter-
and miners to explore Peace river and
tin' Athabasca
The party started from Red Doer,
April 20, traversed over 2,'2uu miles,
trapping and pros'tcctitrg, and returned
to Fort Kdmonton, Sept. 29. Omitting
only some incidents of the hunt after
InijJre game, which frequently imperiled
the lire ppf one or the other oi Ihe party,
t'le following is practically the stp>ry ol
his experience dtiringHhat journey as
told by him:
Four of us started out together from
Golden, B C, withuut saying anything
to our neighbors of our intentions, n��
we really did tmt know oar destination,
though so were in the best of spirit*
and full of hope or a successful trip
We wrote for our mining cerrifleates
after we bad left, because we could not
iirosftect or hunt without a ccrtilicare
for British Columbia and one for the
North-West Territory We had 38
h i -<w in oar train Some of them had
never felt a saddle or strap on their
backs, aud they kicked and balked and
strewed the trails for miles with tbe
prot IsiotiH packed ou them We found
11, nty of prairie chickens, fool hens,
blue, N'lcckled aud ruffed grouse and
small red deer, all g-eod to eat We
travelled for three days through the
section known as Red Deer river valley,
and then came to the border of Clear
Water river. Thre* days later we
reached the headwaters of the Saskar
chewan river, when* we found a dense
foreat filled with fame. That country
possesses some of the most beautiful
seenery overseen by human eye, though
very few white men have ever seen it
We killed more fool hens and other
birds with a stick than we could pack
Sheep, goats, elk, caribou, moose, near.
I��l:u k-tail deer, mule deer snd bird* ppf
different kinds are abundant and know
no fear, as the hunter has never pen
st rated those regions, which would be a
���perfect paradise Un sportsmen.
The trail led to the head of the Bra'/.tie
river, iu the heait of tbe Rockies   Here
we found only mountain sheep and por
cupine.   The mountains  are  covered
with moss.   Wirhin one week we reach
ed the headwaters of the Meline river.
[which Is the source of the Athabasca.
We found  a  large lake, just  like a
funnel, the water  constantly rushing
r-pund rhe sides toward the center in a
fierce whirl and linking through the
{bottom    To teat the force and depth of
Ihe funnel we felled the largest tree we
Icould find in the vicinity, dragged it
Into 'he lake no that the current could
get hold of ii.   Within one minute rhe
tree We* In  the  whirl  and drawn IiiIpp
Mm vortex.   That giant of the ftn_rt
fcvn* twisted Ii'.e a frail weed and swallowed up by the furious abyss, disappearing to the bottom.   The apex of
the funnel is about 00 feer in dinmeter.
iikI the fore** in Its center Is sound hin<r
(earful,     What becomes  of   the   vasl
relume, of water which  sinks through
that abyss has never been ascertained.
Trut is supposed to continue rhmnjHs an
ludergrnund channel for s distance of
[early Ho miles when it appears spoilt*
l"ir from   a crevice  in the  rmk   with
*rrific force nnd a tremendous roar and
then flows down the valley of the Atha-
.  ,j ���i tbe Atha-f,
hasca river.   At night  we hunted lor I despondent Englishmen and took them
caribou, but found ample game, such as 1 **ong_until
silver-tipped bear and other choice
meat. V\ e crossed over through timbered country to Little Smokey river,
Big Smokey and Peace rivers. We met
several white men making their way
laboriously up the river, wading in the
water up to their necks, pulling their
canoes, as many as six men to one
canoe, all heading for tbe Klondike,
through not one ot them had the faint-
eat idea how to get there. They constituted the remnant of a large party
that bad starttni from California, made
up principally of men from Stockton,
Fresno and Los Angeles.
We crossed and struck the old Fort
St. John trail, which formerly belonged
to the Hudson Bay Company)and found
the camp where a partv of prospectors
had wiutered the past season. The
trail was strewn with dead horses and
abandoned Klondike outfits. Many
must have perished on that trail, as
game is very scarce there. Tbe whole
trail is a mass of congealed muskeg, a
sort of inland swamp, covered with
moss, northern spruce and tamarack.
as we continued, we came across men
who wen* mining and prospecting along
the streams aud creeks emptying into
Peace river. Their canoes were wrecked in the river, their outfits lost. Some
of the men were drowned, breaking up
the parties, while the survivor*consolidated and decided to remain. They
found gold in small quantities but the
dust is so fine that it eannot be worked
without mercury or cyanide of potassium. The most difficult part of our
journey was from Peace river to the
Nelson, 800 miles through mountains,
over muskegs, rafts and fallen timber,
down the Nelson to the Hay Forks. We
met many people mining and prospecting They spoke to us of their finds
and we settled down to do some mining
and prospecting ourselves. In three
weeks we took out about $M) to S40 to
tbe man and abandoned it as a bad job.
Those in camp had not taken out any
more than we did. One week's travel
brought us down the Hay Forks, where
we found a biased trail of a Canadian
expedition led by Buffalo Jones. Their
objet t appeared to be the capturing of
herds of muskeg Jones captured nine
of the animals One night,while asleep
in camp, the Indians cut the throats of
seven of them.
The Indians will not allow these animals to leave the country if they can
prevent it, because thej have a super
stition that luck leaves with tbem We
also found the remains of a man and
horse, and a rusty six-shooter We
followed the blared trail on our return
and met Buffalo Jones returning to Fort
Kdmonton. sfter landing his party at
Dawson He wss just 18 days out of
Daw**on, ami had the two musk oxen,
horse- and outfit with him. Along that
trail, from that spor to nearly the Great
Slave lake, we found abundant traces
of the white man's travel. Finally we
ran across a village of about 400 or 500
men. Thev had plentv of provisions
and had settled down for the winter,
intending to return to civilisation in the
spring'. People from all parts of the
country were in that camp���doctors,
lawver*, druggists, snd persons of all
trades and occupations. Thev had a
meetinghouse and had established a
burving ground,which already contained three graves of those who had fallen
by tin* wavslde. Over their temporary
dwellings were all sorrs of ridiculous
sijftiM. ^he entire party consisted of
p||����pi*o<utcd Klnndikers. From that
place we found many dead horses, some
human skeletons, caches of grub, abandoned ontfifs, until we came near Croat
Slave lake, where we found another
partv of men. and from there to Lesser
Slave lake we met several large parties
of camper* In all. we must have seen
in the neiirhhorhood of 2,900men, many
despondent, sick, injured, crippled;
some with broken limbs, lingering be
tween life and death and suffering a
thousand agonies far worse than death.
We found millions of acres between the
two lakes, with grass so high that we
could tie It in knots above the.packs on wnfiv
our horses' backs.   We nicked up a tew  S \�� ttUlH
_    _���        we landed them safely at
Fort Edmonton.
Some truths we reach through observation of facts and inferences from them.
The wider the range of observation, and
the more uniform the facts, tbe higher
the degree of probability. But other
truths are more probable. We have
a certainty about them which far exceeds the reach of our experience. We
feel that they must be true, or existance
hss no meaning for us or for any one.
We do not hold them as we bold our
opinions. They hold us, as convictions.
They are parts of our intellectual and
spiritual being, not notions of our heads.
That there are wisdom and goodness
"st the heart of things," that this wisdom and this goodness support and
sustain our effort to be wise and good,
snd that they are going forward to win
a substantial victory over folly and evil,
are convictions of this kind. No amount
of reasoning will ever dislodge them
from the human mind. If every argument for their truths from observation
and experience were exploded, thev
would still retain their hold on us, and
would bave their power over human lite.
Nothing can weaken our certainty about
them but such a depravation of our very
nature, through ill-doing, as deprives us
of our birthright in these truths, or
unfits us to enjoy them. Sio may make
us atheists; logic never will suffice to
do so.

Largest Dividend Bver Paid by m Mine.
The Calumet A Heels Copper Company, operating mines in northern
Michigan, declared a dividend last week
of $10 a share accompanied by an extra
dividend of $30 a share.   This makes a
total payment of $4,000,000; or adding
tbe dividends previously paid it makes
$7,000,000 paid during uie company's
current fiscal year. The rate is 280 per
cent, on the company's capital stock of
$2,500,000, taken at par vaiue; but it is
only 8 per cent, on the current selling
price of the stock, which is $860 (ex-
dividend) on the par value of $25 a share.
The payment of $4,000,000 at one time
is, we believe, the largest cash dividend
by an American mining company. It is
one of the largest���if not the largest���
ever paid by a mining company anywhere. Certainly it is the largest ever
paid by such a company out of current

Should ponder on their gas bills, taxes, food
Than vainly howl aud loudly shout my name

When 1 am gone
I would not have the earth pause in its coarse,
Lest too one-sided baking should result.
And let the moon swing round, it Joys her soul,
She'll not annoy roe. romping with the i
When 1 am gone.
I almost think���since others have gone out,
And still the house kee|�� open, ana they play
The same old games of life, the same old voice
Of croupier Fate drones on his "Gash for chips,
And chips for cash"���I e'en at times suspec.
That possibly, perchance, mayhap perhaps,
Things may go oa as they have gone before
When I am gone.

The following letter to the London B.
C. Review explains itself. It is from the
London managers of the Northwest
Mining Syndicate aud refers to the Bosun
mine, New Denver:
Sire,���We have noticed references in
your issues at different times as to the
desirability of the lead ores produced in
Kootenay being smelted in British Columbia, with s view to saving the duty
of $30 per ton on the lead contents of the
ore that ia incurred by sending the ore
to be smelted in the United States.
Anything that is good for the country
we should be glad to see; and we. tod,
had thought thst the idea was that
benefits were to arise from tha ureal ion
of a local smelting industry, snd from
the advantage which the mining industry
would obtain by the saving of the above
heavy American duty. However, we
find, somewhat to our surprise, that this
latter is not contemplated; at least, we
have just received a letter from our manager at the Bosun mine enclosing the
terms on which the Trail smelter will
treat our ore.   They are aa follows:
$20.50 per ton for freight and treatment, and \% cents per _. on 100 per
cent, of tbe lead contents, or an amount
of deduction equivalent to the United
States duty on read contents in ore
So that the proposition of local smelting is evidently a sentimental one, so
far as tho mines ars concerned. They
are to be no better off���in fact, not so
well off���as we get better terms than
these from the American smelters, who
no doubt have a heavier carriage to bear,
and the whole of tlie saving of the duty,
etc., is evidently to go to the Canadian
fttueltnr. At least, that is the proposal
mat is oerore tw_- Yours faithfully,

"Copper is the great 'demand in British Columbia st the present time," said
a local mining broksr to a Vsncover
World reporter. "There sre In the
city now tnrt!fe or four representatives
of Britsh companies who are asking for
copper propositions which they wish to
buy outright Copper isat a good price
now and mines are wanted by outside
people. But they are after proven
properties, from which they can begin
to ship very soon sfter acquiring them.
But while we should have 100 copper
mines shipping ore we have prnct cally
none. On the coast gold predominates,
and what English |>eople want now is
copper���copper everywhere. From all
reports the Similkameen will be a copper  producing district, but  it is not
opened up yet. Of course, there are
such properties as the Nobbill that
have made great records. That mine,
for instance, is simply a mountain 01
copper, and though it htu not snipped
a pound of ore, the stock has gone up
from seven to 85 cents per share in a
vear. Of course there is the Boundary
Creek countrv, which will be a copper
producer second to none, when thev
get smelter and matting plants in
there, but at the present time tbe copper mines that the outside capitalist
would like to buv and are enquiring for
are lacking, B*ut then,'' added the
broker with a satisfied ilgh, "this is a
young country" _
Last Friday the owners of the Nee
pawa, ten Mile, while continuing one
of the long tunnels driven when the
property was under bond to tbe Bell-
Irving syndicate of Vancouver capitalists about two years ago, made an
important strike of a galena ore body
from eight to 16 inches in thickness.
The Neepawa has always been COn-
sidered one of the first properties on
Ten Mile. It was taken up bv Dr.
Bell-Irving for the company he i*
representing on a M0��Q00 bond. The
first payment was made, but when tin*
second'fell due the company hud met
with so many adverse*, and Ithsviug
in the meantime acquired the Thompson group, on Four Mile, on which I

it was impossible to make the payments

are erected on tlte property, and severs]
hundred feet of development work has
been done. The owners, Messrs
Gillivray and Shannon. New Denver,
will continue the work of developing
and taking out ore as it is encountered.
There appears to be a difference of
opinion in regard to the rights of citizens
of British Columbia, to locate mineral
claims in the neigh boring state of Wash*
ington. The subject has been taken up
in some of the coast papers, and finally
ihe United States consul at Vancouver
lias seemingly set the matter at rest by
sending tbe pillowing letter to the News-
Advertiser, of that city, shov ing conclusively that aliens are not barred from
locating mineral claims in Washington.
The letter is as follows:
Tothe Editor of tbe News-Adv��ii<cr:
Sib,���I am sure that your correspond*,
ent, "B. C. Miner," has failed to inform
himself regarding tbe laws of the State
of Washington relative to minim.*-claims.
The fact is that an alien has all rights
and privileges regarding the location,
holding and disponing of mining claims
thst resiilents of the slate have. Aliens
may not acquire real estate uideas they
have declared their intention of becoming citizens, but mining claims an<l
sufficient land buildings for the purpose
of working them, are apeciuYally exempted. With regard to itteh planus a
Canadian has just aa much right as any
citisen of our North West State.

Unneighborlu in London.
London life drives people in upon
themselves. The flrst thing that
strikes a newcomer from the provinces is the uniieigliborliness of London. Among the millions here vou
can live a more lonely life than in a
remote country town. People don't
know their next door neighbors, and
don't want to know them. Not only
that, people living in the same house
are frequently strangers to each
other. Often you knock at the doors

though botti may have lived there
for years. When the spirit of neigh-
burliness is absent the spirit of citizenship suffers. In the slums it is
different. The slums of London represent about the only place where
neiglrborliness prevails. In the back
slum courts you will find a more
genuine neighborly spirit than anywhere else in London. The little
community knows itself thoroughly.

Editor Paystreak,
In vour issue of 4th inst I noticed
an article (Opposition in Prophecy)
and as my name is mentioned in regard to subjects pertaining to meteorology I take the liberty in my leisure
of stating that: In the first place, I
am no weather prophet- At present
I mstte my living by mining in one
of the greatest silver-lead mines in
British Columbia, and while astronomy is my greatest fbbile and I do
occasionally mske ont a weather
chart for a few mining men, freinds
of mine (bnt not for the public���nor
do I intend to) my opponents in
meteorology think I am infallible.
Ido not claim to be infallible. I
have studied the weather for 17
years. I bave noticed that those
who do not read, or if they read do
not understand, snch wild senseless
remarks of a few prejudiced rivals
who try to imitate me. The idea of
earthquakes in Japan, electric disturbances at Bonnington Falls and
ice around the ice cream freezer is
simply a flow of bombastic vituperation paregorically applied to your
humble servaaj.
And now I wish to state once for
all time that it any of those amateur
weather prophets doubt my ability
on such subjects as astronomy or
meteoiology let them rent a hall
and let each of them find words in
their repository of elocution to give
expression to their ideas on the subject and let tbe intelligent public
judge for itself. My motto is "Look

able. Trusting I have not intruded

Annexation Sentiment Spreading in
that District
Victoria, March 6���According to
advices, received by the Amur, from
Alaskan ports the people of Dyea and
Skagway are more anxious to come
under the folds of the Union Jack
than tney are to stay with tbe United
States. The Dyea Press is quite out
spoken for annexation. It says:
"The excitement produced by the
proposed report of the sub-committee
of the joiut treaty commission to
cede to the Canadians a seaport on
the headwaters of Lynn Canal seems
to have provoked a great deal of interest and opposition, especially it
Seattle. The dispatches concerning
the subject indicate that the proposed
ceding of the ports of Dyea and
Skagway to the Canadians is at an
end; at least it will remain in 'statu
quo' until the subject is again
brought before the commission. The
newspapers of the coast are a unit
against such a proposition, and
threaten to oppose the administration should it countenance such a
movement. The people in this 'neck
of the woods,' who are directly interested, are not consulted, and the opposition offered by the papers of the
Sound seems to be largely governed
by the opposition of the steamship
and business men of Seattle, and
their opposition is founded upon
purely selfish motives, and not in
spired by lofty  patrotiem as they
make it appear."
Atlin is Dull.
The Seattle Post-Intel licenser of
Monday contains an interview with
the above heading and the opening
paragraph is ��� "The Atlin country is

transacted, miners are leaving and
there is a general belief that the
waole boom will collapse. Such are
tbe reports brought down from Skagway by persons who have been in
the district. There is absolutely no
The Post-Intelligencer says that
the exclusion law is the cause.
Meetings have beeu held and a man
named Kenny was sent out to Ottawa
to discuss the matter with the government and to declare that the
people of the Atlin countrv, irrespective of nationality, were bitterly opposed to the law*.

the minority made a straight charge
