Many of tbe recent appointments

The time of year draws near when

A Railway Wanted.
John J. Langstaff gets off the following in the Trout Lake Topic:
As a general thing this community
is not of a more philanthropic temper-
ment than any other section of its
heft, but circumstances, recently,
have to a great extent broadened its
views and softened its heart towards
struggling humanity and made it
long with a deep and intense longing
to help Jew and Gentile alike, regardless as to whether they be sincere followers of the precepts of Moses
or hard .shell Baptists.
We have come to this, the turning
point of our moral and intellectual
career because we have an abundance snd to spare of the luxuries of
life in the shape of gold, silver, copper and lead. The first two are for
the convenience of adults in all walks
of life, the third may be minted and
serve to purchase unbounded bliss,
on holidays, for the rising generation
of eastern Canada, and the last may
be made up into neat, conical pills
and administered io judicious quantities to the French and Russians, to
.My the a��*ute biliousness from which
they are at present suffering.
Then ion't let ns forget the C.P.R.
with its weaitb of starving, shivering
shareholders, many of whom have
not tasted a $10 meal in the past ten
years. Poor unfortunate fellows!
And we have the wherewithal lying
around loose among onr hills and
valleys to buy them anything from a
red cotton handkerchief to a stab* of
chronic obesity and which we would
he willing to distribute among these
thousands of deserving poor if we
H'*only had a box car or two and something more firm than a streak of dun
colored mud to push them over.
Then, look at the many thousands
of needy Americans who are depending on the supply of Canadian lead
to keep the wind from whisteling
graveyard melodies through their
skeletons; bow fat they would grow
on a reinforced diet of pumpkin p>
and corn dodgers, all bought with
our surplus silver and lead. How
the struggling, drown tug- smelter
man would find within his reach the
means to buy a pretty little blanket
trimmed with red and ornamented
with silver bangles, to cover the
nakedness of his shivering little
poodle dog, with, perhaps enough
over to make a crazy quilt to warm
the chilly little limbs of an employes
child. And all that prevents his
wife and child from supping on
pearls, a la Cleopatra, is the lack of
a two-railed thoroughfare somewhere
in the neighborhood of Trout creek
Our editorial soul is titled with
gloom of tire rich, dusky color ot
lampblack when we think these
thoughts, and as we scan the ore-
laden shelves of our cshinet we
would pawn our pup If we could All
some or those poor and needy out-
aiders with our lead, taking in exchange hardtack and a Blake crusher (to digest it.) When we consider
��� that we hsye at least one half the
silver and lead of West Kootenay,
gold to beat the Klondike, copper
enough to change half the population
of Canada into noble red men. porcupines and fool hens enough to provide
a square meal for Uncle Sam's stand
ing army, but no jack rabbits, hardtack or railroads, our heart taints
with despair and we would fain be
once more browsing among the quiet
homesteids and quieter graveyard*

Up-to-date Pishing.
New York Journal���For the past
few days testa have been made of the
big new guns at Fort Wadsworth
and Fort Hamilton. Yesterday the
big guns boomed almost incessantly.
Every time ihey boomed all the fish
I within a radius of a mile were stunned. These fish floated out to sea
with the tide in the afternoon, and
when the tide came in again the fish
came too. Within a halt an hour
after the discovery of the r-tystreak
of fish was made hundreds of persons
were on the spot. They had buckets,
bags, baskets, wagons, hand harrows
and pushcarts. It was an easy matter to rill any sort of a vehicle or
recepticle, As fast as the fish were
picked up other fish were washed tn
to take their places. Boats also were
utilized, and when Fulton market
opened to the public the glut was so
great that tish could be had at sny
Possible Combinations at Poker.
In a deck of fittv-two cards there

manv different combinations of five
cards each. There are l.COisMO
possible combinations embracing ism*
pair, although there art; of course
only Itt different pair* in a deck.
There are 123.552 possible combine
tiorts of five cards including two
pairs; 54,-12 possible combinations
including three of s kind, lOriu)
straights, 5,108 flti��hes, 3.714 full

there are only thirteen different

flushes and one hand ��*_" l'����ur ace*.
Hoyle used to contend that four ace*
comprised the last hand in poker,
because if four aces were out in one
hand there could be no royal Hu*h
out agaiust it. But the introduction
of the j >ker in a royal flush w.trlil
till it out against four aces hence
Hoyle's rrrle is not regarded safe by
modern player's of the game.

There is one Vancouver company at
least doing business in the Slocan, that
w going about its business in s
thorough way and is meeting with suc-
cess-the Financial _ Mining Trust of
Canada, Limited. This compsny
scquired during the summer the Vult
snd Vulture claims, situated on tbe
south fork of Carpenter creek, one and
one-half miles above Sandon. They
hsd s small stringer of galena and csr-
bonstes showing on the surface and a
number of cuts traced the vein up the
mountain, almost through both claims
A tunnel was started in st one of the
showings, snd s few days ago 14 inches
of solid ore was struck, assaying 150 oz.
silver snd 60 per cent. lead. F. H.
Lantx, s practical snd experienced
miner, has charge of the property, with
seven men working. Development will
be pushed sil winter snd in the spring
shipments will be msde. The new
strike sdds another to the shipping
properties of the camp, aod it will be
steady aa the vein is pronounced to be
a true fissure.
This company also owns two properties on the north fork. They have
had a representative here all summer
sizing up the country, and their operations will be extensive. Tbe claim*)
Isat mentioned sre shout three miles
from Three Forks snd will be extensively worked next season. They are
now prospects land nothing has so fsr
been done beyond s little surface
scratching. Both claims have galena
mixed with carbonates showing, and
they will readily bear further exploiting.
But it is in the Duncan district,
where the company hopes^to make a decided name for the'mselves.as they have
one of the biggest propositions in thst
camp. There are seven claims in all
in the group, situsted not more than
one anus quarter miles from navigable
waters on Kootenay lake. This is
known as tbe Giant group and joins the
Lavinia combination. There are no
less than four veins on the group, two
of which sre exposed across the full
length of five claims. One of these they
stale to be 80 feet in width and is a
huge concentrating proposition. On
the others there is from six to 10 inches
of galena mixed with carbonates, which
has given most satisfactory returns.
During the summer surface work was
done sufficient to warrant a general
development, and this will be done so
soon ss the snow goes off by a force of
10 men, which will be further increased
to 25.
Besides these properties, thecompsny
owns three copper prospects on tbe
mainland of British Columbia, rust
above Vsldes Island, in the Gulf of
Georgia. However, the operations of
the Financial & Mining Trust will be
confined mostly to this section, where
the returns sre more certain, and where
they seem to be assured of success.
The hoisting plant on the Tsmsrac,
Ymir, is finished.
Geological   Survey   or  Sloeaa.
R. W. Brock snd W. W. Leach, of the
Geological Survey, have returned to
Ottawa from the Slocan district, sfter s
season -of topographical snd geological
work. Mr. Brock says ths season wss a
bsd one for their work. Considerable
development hss besn going on hi sil
the camps and mining is being placed
on s business basis. Msny new proper-
lies sre being opened, snd the showings
on the whole sre fine. The raise in the
price of silver snd lead bss caused erest
activity in the Slocan district, where the
ores sre principally silver and land. Mr.
Brock considers the general condition of
mining in British Columbia is very good,
snd the prospects bright. The camps
sre growing steadily.

An Important Cnee.
More than three years ago George
M. Spencer came into Sandon, and
gave Mike McKelvie $25 for a lot
which he was holding as a squatter.
Upon this ground ne erected his
opera house. Later, Spencer says,
J, M. Harris represented that he had
a Crown grant to the land as a town-
site and Spencer signed a lease argee
ing to pav Harris so much a month
ground rent. Some six months ago
Spencer came to the conclusion that
the ground upon which his building
stands was Crown granted as a mis*
eral claim and not as a townsite, and
he quit paying rent claiming that
Harris bad no right to make money
out of the property except by mining.
Harris asked for the rent and Spencer refused to pay and has entered
an action against Harris to recover
all the rent he has already paid in,
claiming that Harris has no legal
right. Harris has put in a defence
claiming $150 rent now due and the
case will be heard in Nelson on the
5th of next month. The case is an
important one as many others in Sandon are in the same position as Spencer, and the decision in the matter
will be awaited with much interest.
At Skawhegan, Maine, on November 16tb, Miss Mary Elsie Fellows of
that city and Bruce Miller White of
Sandon, 8. C.
The announcement of the wedding,
which came as something of a surprise to his many Sandon friends, is
the culmination of a happy romance
extending over several Years. Miss
Fellows was a member of the Rebecca
Mackenzie company wbieb nude a
tour of Kootenay three years ago.
At that time an attachment was
termed of which the event oi the ltith
inst. was the outcome.
Miss Fellows is an accomplished
musician and possesses a charming
personality intellectually and socially. Her already numerous friends
will be glad to welcome her back to
Bruce White is too well known to
require any eulogy. It is sufficient
to say that Bruce is as much one of
the boys to-day as when be packed
his blankets into the Slocan in the
pioneer days of '91. Many years of
prosperity have not served to estrange him from his friends of yore,
and his popularity is exceeded only
by bis modesty and bis good-natured
gentlemanly manner. Everyone In
the Slocan will have the gtad hand
for Bruce on his return. The happy
couple will reside in Nelson.

Mons. Walther's rendering of favorite selections on the violin was a rev

back to other days and other scenes
