General View of the Present Conditions Surrounding
the Camp—Prosperous Future Is Now
An Assured Fact.
The official announcement of the
result of the work of the Elmore
concentrator now running on one
side regularly, is being awaited by
the camp. It ia reported on excellent authority thatthe plant hes
proved even a greater success than
waa anticipated, but it may be
supposed that the announcement
will not be given until both sides
of the plant are being run regularly, for until such is the. case there
will be no definite result whioh oan
very well be given. The delay is
incident to all new plants which
are placed in operation and will
doubtless be overcome within a
short period of them.
It will be learned with satisfaction that the llossland Kootenay
haB resumed shipment of ores, its
differences with the Northport
smelter evidently having been
amicably arranged, No enrs have
aB yet been billed out, but there
are a couple in process of loading
at the platform, near the upper
Bchool house in the Great Northern
railway yard.
The White Bear has nearly completed the casing in of its head-
worke, and it also will be in full
swing in a short period of time.
The Jumbo is shipping steadily to
Northport, and the Le Roi No. 2 to
Greonwood. The O. K. mill is in
full swing, and quite a success is
being met with on the property.
In addition to these, the Le Roi iB
shipping over 800 tons daily, and
the Centre Star and War Eagle between contribute nearly 3000 tone
weekly to the camp's output. Good
progress is being made with the
concentrator destined for the treatment of the ores of the last mentioned mines, which ie going up
near Trail. Enough will have been
done before the coming of the permanent snow to permit of the building being completed during the
winter, and the necessary machinery installed. Altogether the outlook before the camp is bright,
and there is a general feeling that
tho tide is turning and will soon be
running strongly Rosslandwards.

The   Atlin
The Atlin, Ymir, Gold Mining
company, has enoountered the
ledge at a deptb of about 200 feet
and at a distance from the portal
of the tunnel of 215 feet. The lead
is the same as the one from which
the oompany has recently been
shipping ore from the surface.
The full width of the vein has
not yet been determined, but the
values hold their own and will
run about $30 in gold.
The Republic Mines
The following is the statement of
the ore tonnage shipped from Republio during the past week:
Mountain Lion to Trail, 621
tone; to Nelson, 140 tone; to Granby, 183 tons; Knob Hill to Nelson,
89 tons; Zala M. to Crofton, 50
tons; Total, tone, 1,083.
Russian Ways
The governor of the Amur, Siberia, has issued an order that no
Chinamen, Koreans or foreigners
shall be employed in the gold
mineB of the Amur, province. A
supplementary report forbids all
river steamers to carry coolies to
the mines.
Dominion Officer Now in
Charge of All Southern  Travel.
The quarantine regulations under the order of the Dominion government for the Boundary are now
in full force. Dr. Sinclair has been
appointed by Ottawa as Dominion
Health Officer under the control
of the head of the health department in Saittttde; Dr. Montizambert.
The provincial health officer Dr-
Fagan has no longer any control
over the quarantine regulations of
the International Boundary. In
the oity Dr. Maokenzie is Btill
Health Officer, his municipal duties in no way conflicting with the
Dominion regulations. The train
from infected centres buA as Spokane and other suspected points is
met by Dr. Sinolair and his assistants. Dr. Sinclair takes the run
from the Boundary to this oity, one
of his assistants that from the
Boundary to Nelson and another
that from the Boundary to Grand
Every person coming from the
south is under the supervision of
these officers and are vaccinated should they deem the operation
necessary as a precaution against
the introduction of smallpox into
the province. A fee is no longer
charged aB was the case when the
quarantine was in force before.
The recrudescence of smallpox in
Spokane, especially under the virulent form it has lately assumed, a
form occasioning the deaths of
three patients out of six attacked by the black smallpox, has
resulted in the stringency of
the regulations being the more
rigidly adhered to. No one desires
another introduction of smallpox
into this city, it is too costly, and
the Dominion authorities will not
leave a loophole for the municipality to blame that introduction
upon them as wbb done in 1902.
A London Proposal
The London Daily News suggests
the bringing of the new Pacific
transcontinental railroad across
the strip of land conceded to the
United States on the western
border of Cassiar.
Canada Obtains an Open
Terms of the Award  Which the
Canadian Commissioners Refuse to Sign as Just.
Two prir.es will be given at the Alham

There has been muoh disappointment over the award 0/ the Alaskan tribunal expressed in Canada.
Under the terms of the treaty a
majority of the tribunal, if obtained, was to be decisive. There were
three representatives of the United
States, two of Canada and one of
Great Britain. The first and the
last agreed upon a compromise,
but the Canadians have refused to
eign the award whioh, however,
goes into effect juBt the same.
Canada gets one waterway, the
Portland Canal, but the United
States obtain two islands off ila
entranoe which command it. In
every other point the United States
has gained the day.
The contention of the United
StateB aa to the boundary was not
sustained. The Canadian view was
acknowledged to be accurate but a
compromise boundary was agreed
upon. The value of the land conceded is nil, but it is a barrier to
Canadian commerce on the Paoifio
ocean, partially mitigatsd by the
opening of the Portland Canal.
The Rathmullsn.
After a close down of several
years the Rathmullen is again to
started under more favorable auspices. The managing direotor, Mr.
L. H. Moffatt, haB arrived from
Toronto and has stated that operations will again he commenoed on
the property at an early date.
Dominion House Prorogues
The Dominion House will prorogue today at Ottawa. No announcement has yet been made of
the general elections, but it ia considered likely that these will not be
long delayed, as the Dominion government is said to be contemplating that those should be all over
by Christmas next.

What the  Magazines are
Some Recent Books and Periodicals
-Topics Interesting General Readers.
The Argosy Magazine is now
claiming to have the second place
among American magazines. It is
readable enough for the most part,
although the magazine is perhaps
not so carefully edited in this respect, with due regard to the literary value of the stories inserted, aB
it might be. Yet, probably the
ohief idea is to sell the magazine
and literary value takes the second
place in the consideration of any
artiole. Nearly fifty years ago,
Wilkie Collins wrote upon the
' Great Unknown Publio," and
were that talented litterateur alive
today, it is more likely that the
Argosy would again move him to
a similar criticism of this class of
light literature. Yet when it is asserted that the favorite mental
pabulum of Chancellor Bismarck
was the French detective story of
du Boisgobey, perhaps it were well
not to judge too harshly of thoee
who tired of active thought in business life, take up an ephemera of
this kind as a sort of opiate.
The English Illustrated deserves
a better patronage than it is getting.   The opposite of the Argosy
it is distinguished  by the literary
art of its stories, and perhaps the
fault of too much "style," a mark,
we  are told, of   deaadency.   The
illustrations are perhaps the best
that appear in any of the magazines of the day, published   at a
similar   price.   The  trouble with
the   English   Illustrated  as with
others of the British productions,
is the   excessive   postage which is
oharged by a myopio poBtoffioe department.   It is  possible, though
hardly probable, that the change
in the  Postmaster Generalship by
the translation of Austen Chamberlain to  another  position  in   the
Balfour   Ministry,   may  make   a
ohange for the better in this regard.
More    probably,    however,    the
change will have to await tbe general British acceptance ol the polioy of Joseph Chamberlain.
The American Review of Reviews, edited by Albert Shaw, the
noted author of the exhaustive
work on Municipal Government in
the Old and the New World, is a
bright number. An offspring of
the London Review of Reviews, it
is more than likely now the Amerioan publication has shot far ahead
of its progenitor.hampered aB is the
latter with the insular and narrow
politics of that fre?k, though clever
journalist, Siead. There is an interesting article on the "Future of
Canada," and as is usual with tbe
political brochure writer of the
United Stales, is perfectly incapable of understanding the Imperialism of Canada, and appeals to a
sordid motive whioh will have no
weight with Canadians with the
history of the splendid past ever
before them. It is strange that the
United Slates,which owes the whole
of its present prosperity to the
breaking down of all tariff walls
between the States of the Union, is
bo unwilling to concede that just
such a similar procedure will induce far geater results within the
Empire. It can hardly be ignorance, and surely the motive should
not be envy. The Empire will
find a way today, as it has ever
found in the past, and hostile and
partial criticism will prove as ineffective now as it haB ever done.
There are other articles whioh are
worthy of perusal about the effects
of democracy and trades unionism
in Australasia, which are worthy
of perusal, and although the reader
cannot always agree, they throw a
light upon many things about the
Antipodeans which puzzle dwellers
upon the northern hemisphere.
, The Designer for November is
the usual welcome women's pro-
publication, and will be read widely by the devoted followers of the
modes, as the gentler sex are re
puted lo be.
Among the lessor magazines, the
first place is easily taken by the
Nickell, which is really a surprise
as lo how muoh good matter can be
respectably presented to the public
for so small a sum. Unlike the
Black Cat, a similar priced publication, which devotes itself to the
story, and good specimens are
nearly always present in its pages,
the Nickell gets itself up in regular
magazine form, and makes a very
good show indeed.
Child Workers
Heroic efforts are being made by
the trades and labor unions of the
South to eliminate child and female labor. The latest move made
by the unions is to practically
adopt the children employed in the
mills. The unions pay to the parents the amount per week of wages
that the child would earn in the
mill, on condition that the children
are taken out by the parents and
sent to school, Thousands of
children in the manufacturing
centres of the South are thus now
provided for by the unions.
Conservative Platform
[Adopted at Rovclstoko, September 13th, 1902.]
1. That this convention reaffirms the policy
of the party in matters of provincial roads and
trails; tho ownership and control of railways
and the development of tho agricultural resources of the province as laid down in tho

Interets Materiel*, the production
of ooal in Russia in 1902 amounted
to 946,546,000 poods. The imports
were 210.345,000 poods, and the
exports 3,064,000 poods.
The reoently discovered ooal
seam in the State of Parana covers
an acre of hectares. The coal,

On October let, the Bunker Hill
& Sullivan Mining and Concentrating company deolared dividend No.

total to date $1,460,000.
Owing to the continued scarcity
of native labor, the manager of the
West Band Central finds it impossible to keep the mill running full
time. Acting upon the managing
director's advioe, the directors have
decided to temporarily suspend
crushing, and with the available
labor confine operations to development work.
The Orange River Colony Gazette announces the appointment
of a Commission to inquire into
and report upon the history, work-,

Orange River Colony, and the trade
and all matters conneoted therewith.
The Belgian CoubuI at Moscow,
has published the following returns
in tons of tbe production at pig
iron in Russia in 1902: South
Russia, 84,224; Ural, 44,587; Poland, 17,235; Central Russia, 8374;
North Russia, 1877; Siberia, 209;
total, 156,^97 tons. The total production of wrought iton and steel
amounted to 117,510 tons.
The Frenoh official report on
trade shows that in 1901, in the
mining industry, there were two
employers' organizations, with a
membership of 78, representing
21.45 per cent of the total employers in France, and sixty two employes organizations, with a membership of 80,098, representing
51.48 per cent of the total workmen.
During the last four years tbe
output of the province of Viotoria,
Australia, has shown a progressive
deoline, amounting to nearly 80,-
000 ounces, the drop this year
being 11,824 ounoes, and unless the
Industry meets with unexpected
good fortune it is difficult to see
how this downward tendency oan
be oheoked. In only one of the
nine mining districts did a prospecting parly find sufficient gold
to repay the advance made by the
ment Act, while all the other inspectors report no payayble discoveries.
Mr. Vioe- Consul Armstrong, of
the Ivory Coast, reports as follows:
The mining industry has within
the last year shown itself of the
greatest importance in the colony,
and has been the cause of the great
influx of British subjects, both engineers and prospectors, into this
oolony. The country is undoubtedly a rioh one, and, of course, it
will take some time to prove the
value of the concessions. Should
these concessions prove as rich as
some suppose them to be, the Ivory
Coast will take its place as one of
the leading gold bearing colonies of
West Africa.

The Winnipeg mine, whioh is
shipping 12 cars weekly, employs a
force of 25 men.
C. P. R. Engineers have completed the survey of the proposed
three mile extension of the Winnipeg mine spur to the Athelstan
mine, Wellington camp. It is expected that the road will oost $10,-
Ore is being rawhided from the
Roderick Dhu mine to the Long
Lake wagon road. There are
about 15 tons on the dump ready
for shipment. Its average value is
$198 to the ton.
About 215 men are now on the
payroll of the Qranby mines, and
close to 100 each are employed by
the Snowshoe and Mother Lode.
All the mines of the Boundary are
Btill gradually increasing tbe
The glory hole on the Athelstan
is assuming laree dimensions.
Forty tons of ore are being shipped
daily to Boundary Falls. The oost
of mining is lower there than at
any other mine in the distriot, as
the ore is soft and easily mined.
The Waterloo mine, in Camp
McKinney, will soon duplicate the
present plant at the mine for milling ore. The company states that
it is the intention to duplicate the
present plant of five stamps, There
is a supply of ore on hand at present which will run ten stamps for
at least ten months. The oompany
has ordered another five stamps
from San Francisco,
John Larson has a small foroe at
work on the Tiger-Poorman group.
It now seems that there iB little
chance of the St. Eugene mine beginning aotive operations before
next April.
The Gold River Mining and
Power company, was reoently incorporated with a capital of $200,-
000 to acquire and utilize the large
water power on Bull river, East
Kootenay. and operate plaoer
ground in the same locality. The
oompany proposes to build a dam
about half a mile above the falls
immediately, and operations on
this and other work connected with
the undertaking has already commenced.
The output for the month of September dropped down to 63,191
tons, a decrease of 10,000 tons
from that of last month. Coal
Creek showed a Bteady inorease but
the closing down of the mines at
Morrissey pending the dispute be-
t ween the miners and the management seriously lessened the output
at that colliery while at Michel the
mines were closed several times
owing to tbe shortage of cars supplied by the C. P. R.
It iB stated at Mount Sicker that
the Richard III mine never looked
belter. Each day the prospects
are looking better, and the mine
gives excellent prospects of Boon
beooming a shipper.
In the Tyee and in the Lenora
new strikes have been made. In
t he Lenora's working ore has, it is
stated, been struck, whioh gives the
following values: One ounce gold,
40 ounces silver, and $33 in oopper.

A meeting of the Northwestern
Development Syndicate will be
held at Laurium, Mich., on the
15th inst., when the reconstruction
of the company will no doubt be
arranged for, and result in the
payment of indebtedness and resumption of work there.
The California Syndioate evidently mean business, as three
tons of supplies have been shipped
to the Mammoth group on Goat
mountain, recently. A force of
men has been at work under the
direction of Sid Graham, building
a trail to enable ore to be rawhided
out this winter. The syndioate has
excellent ehowings on this property and assay returns give rioh
values, the ore being galena.
A fine specimen of auturnite
uranium oalcio phosphate may be
seen in the cabinets of the Kaslo
Hotel. It mas brought down from
Gerrard. Caloic phosphate was
originally discovered at Turin,
At La Fontaine the sinking operations are progressing satisfactorily, the shaft now having reach
ed a depth of 115 feet. All the
machinery for thiB plant will have
arrived before it ie needed and Sir
J. Bevan Edwards expects gravel
will be struck in January.
The development work on the
Athabasca-Venus, says President
Giles, has showed their real value
to be muoh greater than has been
previously supposed. On the Athabasca particularly, some promising new Btopes bas been opened up.
On the Athabasca," says Mr.
Giles, "we seem to have got out of
the broken formation and into the
true fissure vein which is carrying
a very good quality of quartz.
Thie was partially done by the old
oompany, but we have now proved
conclusively that the vein we are
on is in its natural position."
The V. F. M. D. oompany's coal

It is stated on oredible authority
that there will be a defioit, unless
the taxes are paid in an unprecedented manner.    Mayor   Dean is
stated   to   be   the   souroe of this
rumor,   but   this   is not credible.
The fact, however, may be taken
for granted.   The man   who sajB
"I told you so," certainly ought to
be lynched, but the man who outran his estimates aB Chairman oi
the Board  of   Works might have
been expected to do so in a higher
position.   Still we are 1 face to face
with the situation, and it has got to
be accepted without recrimination.
It behooves   this city to look out
for further sources of revenue, and
along the leasrtine of resistance is
the acquisition of the lighting franchise, notice   of  which  must   be
given   before  February next, just
after elections, Present incumbents
of office have nothing to say on this
subject, yet it is well known that
present   incumbents   of office aie
seeking mayoual honors next year.
Gentlemen,   you will   have to declare yourselves.
A contemporary records the fact
that the big packing companies of
Chicago have promised their men
substantial increase in wages, just
so long aa there are no strikes and
calls upon union offioers to see that
this bargain is carried out. It
dwells with satisfaction upon this
result and declares that this is a
striking object lesson of the use-
lessness ef unions. Considering
that the main object of trades
unionism is to see that wagoa are
not driven down, and that the employers, in this instanoe are giving
up the very point at issue, it is hard
to see the relevancy of the contention. If trades unions are conceded
the very thing for which they exist,
the uselessness of their existence iB
apparently     demonstrated.     But
had they  not have existed, would
the concession quoted be granted?
And if they ceased to exist because
if the   concession   being granted,
would it be lived up to?
The publicity   which the Rose-
land press saw fit laBt week to give
to tbe   outbreak  of   incendiarism
has   inourred   the   disapproval of
Mayor   Dean.   We  are of  course
deeply   contrite,   but   we   do not
think the Rossland press has anything to take back.   Mayor Dean
effected   some   economies  on   the
police and on the fire department.
The fire   insuranoe  companies remonstrated.     Possibly   tbey    felt
like the most of Rossland's citizens,
that Mayor Dean's economy ought
to have begun closer at home, if he
would have acted with a good grace.
Those   companies    said    certain
things   might   occur.     If   Mayor
Dean had   committed the press to
his Star Chamber methods, private
reports   from    insurance   agents,
might  have   led   those insurance
companies to the belief that those
things had occurred, and infallibly
the rates would have risen, unless
the fire  and   police   departments
were    restored    to   their  former
strength.   Then,  if  an   economy
had to effected, the Mayor would
have bad to put his hand in hie
own salaried pocket.   Which, possibly, would hive raised a greater
kick on that official's part.   As it
is the prompt action of the fire department   showed   that even four
fires    within    two    hours    were
not      too      much      for    tbem.
And the abandonment of two heaps
of combustibles by the incendiaries
behind Ewert Brothers store and
under the   Opera   House,  showed
that tbe ubiquity of the police department   was   too   much  for the
criminals.   Both departments deserve credit, and if the Mayor had
Perhaps the heading of this article is a misnomer, inasmuch aB
ths result of Chamberlain's policy
has been to make a cleavage in tbe
British party strata. Chamberlain
is himself a Liberal, nay a Radical.
But for want of a better name, tbe
opponents of Chamberlain will be
called Liberals, especially as the
leaders, Bannerman aud Rosebery,
both identify themselves with the
Attention is called to the significance of the following excerpt from
the news columns of the London
"Lord Dilmany, the eldest son of
Lord Rosebary, waB on Wednesday
adopted by the executive of the
Mid Lothian Liberal Association
as candidate for the oouuty at the
next election, after delivering an
address, in which he deolared himself opposed to both Mr. Chamber-
Iain's and Mr. Balfour's fiscal
polioy, advocated reorganization of
the military system, and held that
one of the first duties of a Liberal
government would be the amendment of the Education Act."
It will be seen that the policy as
developed as contra Chamberlain,
to bring up two   local issues, the
one the reorganization   of the War
Office  (in which the   Little Eng
lander  has   no idea of consulting
Greater Britain) and the other the
amendment of the Education Act,
again an entirely local issue.   One
would think that when the house
is burning the householder would
not think about tbe arrangement of
the diningroom furniture.   If this
is the best Mr. Chamberlain's opponents oan do it is a foregone conclusion that ihey will not win out
on an appeal   to the oountry.   A
significant event lately occurring,ie
the reception of the Ex-Chancellor
of the Exchequer when attacking
Chamberlain's    resignation    and
lauding his   own, when that eminent   two   by four   financier was
hardly accorded a hearing, because
he attacked the Ex-Colonial Secretary,and because he appealed to tbe
fears of the Briton. Britain is hardly
the nation to whioh suoh an appeal
would    be    successful.    Another
oircumstance    equally   significant
was the ominous drop in this circulation of a leading London Liberal daily on its attacking   Cham-:
berlian.   That paper had to crawl
back to its allegiance  under   pen
By our news columns it will be
noted   that   the   gallant   Scottish
soldier, Sir Hector Macdonald who,
during the paBt summer took bis
•life under pressure of scandal, has
been vindicated.   A Commission ol
Enquiry was appointed, with   instructions to probe privately and
publicly into all the circumstances
of the charges, the nature of whioh
were never made publio, against his
character; the scene of which was
Ceylon, where Macdonald had been
in charge.   That Commission, after
oareful enquiry upon the spot, has
come   to   the conclusion   that the
charges brought  against him were
unwarranted,   aud that there was
nothing in them that should have
led   to   hia   having   laid   violent
hands upon himself.   It will be remembered,   however,   that offioial
cognizance had been taken of these
by the War Office, and that it was
in  consequence of a   notification
from that supreme body that Gen
eral Macdonald, iu a fit of despondency aud, as it would now appear,
of disgust, acting upon the Celtic
temperament,  committed   suicide.
Everybody, it may be said, though
feeling sorry for the hero, was only
too willing to believe the accuraoy
of the charges made.   Color was
lent to   this by the very   circumstance of his suicide,  and by the
notice taken of tbe charges by the
War Office and by the Commander-
in Cbief,  himself a soldier second
to none iu the Empire, an old and
valued servant.Lord Roberts. Even
his own family hurried the funeral
privately, and refused to permit of
public recognition of   the corpse
as it was   conveyed through England and France to Scotland on its
way to final interment.   But the
Highlanders, imbued with a stern
sense of justice, insisted upon enquiry, let that enquiry result as it
might.   And that enquiry  has re
suited ia the clearing of the memory of as  gallant a soldier as the
Highlands have ever borne.
But now that this has been finished it is distinctly up to that
War Office and lo that Commander-
in-Chief to rigidly prosecute a further enquiry as to the cowardly instigators of the course which hound
ed Macdonald to a dishonored
grave. Let them be whomsoever
they may, no reputation can stand
higher than that of the general,
who rose from the ranks, to a world
wide renown, and if such a reputa
tion can be assailed, then the assailant, however high he or they
may stand, is assailable likewise,
Justice must be d ne.

The compromise arrived at in the
Alaskan award has raised a storm
if indignation from one end of
Canada to the other. Canada objected to tbe personnel of the United States commissioners on the
ground that it waB rather political
than juridical but our objections
wore overruled. It seems again as
if (he direct interests of Canada
were sacrificed to a willingness to
placate the United States on the
part of insular diplomats. Canada
will now have to build a feeder
from tbe Grand Trunk norlh into
Atlin and the Klondyke, a distance of 300 miles through Cassiar.
Also the mouth of the Stikine has
paaaed into the oontrol of the United States barring an outlet from
the rich district beyond except by
rail.   Further, if the Grand Trunk
the small islands off the ooast  Bur-
rendered to the United States. But
if that terminal is   higher   on the
inlet,  nearer  the  mouth  of  the
Nasse river, this disadvantage will
not obtain.   The  real  trouble  is
not the  output  of the   Klondike
whioh is rapidly lessening, falling
50 per cent during the  past  three
years, but the barring out of Canada from its legitimate coast line aa
far as the CaBsiar division of British Columbia   is  oonoerned.   But
the  southern   portion,   the  Coast
division, is   absolutely   Canadian.
The point  is   that   the   northern
strip is not of   muoh   use  to  the
United States but is   of  potential
value to Canada.   When the United StateB comes to discuss reciprocity with Canada the United StateB
will find that the stiip will form   a
feature in the diplomaoy  of   that
time.   But a reciprocity  commission will have no Little  England
ers upon it.   The strip must  now
be acknowledged to belong to  the
United   States,   At   some  future
day it may be a serious bar to the
development   of  Canadian   trade.
The United States, having no de
sire to provoke bad feeling on  the
part of Canada, would be  wise  to
make the matter a subjeot of  bargain.   But Lord Alverstone's compromise in the  present  oase  will
infallibly lead to the exolusion  of
all but fi mericans from the personnel of the next Court of Diplomaoy.

on the suioide of General Sir Hector
Macdonald whioh   has  just  been
made publio.
Government Buildings, Colombo,
June 29, 1903
In reference to the grave charges
made against the late   Sir   Hector
Macdonald, we, the appointed and
undersigned   commissioners,   individually and   collectively   deolare
on oath that, after the most  careful, minute, and exhaustive inquiry
and investigation of the whole   circumstances  and   facts  connected
with the sudden   and   unexpected
death of the late Sir Hector  Mao-
donal,  unanimously   and   unmistakably find absolutely no reason
or crime whatsoever   whioh would
create feelings suoh as would determine suicide, in preference to  con
viotion of any crime   affecting the
moral and irreproachable charaoter
of so brave, so foarleas, si glorious,
and unparalled   a   hero,   and   we
firmly  believe   the  cause  which
gave rise to tbe inhuiian and cruel
suggestions of orime were prompted through vulgar feelings of spite
and jealousy in his rising to such
a high rank of distinction   in   the
British army; and, while we  have
taken the most reliable and   (rust-
worthy evidence from every accessible and conceivable source,   have
without  hesitation   come   to  tbe
conclusion that there is not visible
the slightest particle  of  truth in
foundation of any crime,  and   we
find the late Sir Hector Macdonald
bas been  cruelly assassinated   by
vile and slanderous tongues. While
honorably acquitting the  late   Sir
Heotor Macdonald of any  oharge
whatever, we cannot   but  deplore
the sad circumstances of   the  case
that' have fallen so disastrously on
one whom we have found innoocnt
of any crime attributed to bim,
Angus Macdonald.

Mayor Dean   Has a New
Proposal to Rossland
The city council proper on Tuesday night occupied its usual  position, which is that of ratifier without diECUssion of matters previously disouBsed in camera, and  consequently its duration was but short.
In connection with the city's  business, it transpired that Mayor Dean
has another brilliant  idea  as   to
economy, which is to reduce   the
amount of light in the city by substituting in certain places what are
called 32 candle power   lights,   for
the aro lights now in   uee.    Alderman Embleton thought that  such
a reduction would Lea help to bad
characters, and that  the  general
tendency of tbe electorate  was for
improved   lighting   and  not  for
a   decrease    in   power,    Nobody
seems to have discussed the matter
from    the    municipal    franchise
point of view. The city   is   paying
880   per  annum   for  each of  its
street lights, and if the city owned
the light there   would be a saving
to this   extent,  inasmuoh as   the
profits of the lighting company are
declared by the vice-president to be
excellent, and steadily  improving.
So that if   the   lights to   private
houses were not reduced in rate, yet
there-would certainly  be sufficient
profit to pay for the  city lighting
proper.   This is what Nelson has
done.   Why Rossland cannot do it
is no doubt perfectly well known to
those sitting in camera,  but these
obscure reasons "ought to be made
public, or   the   public   may think
that is good reaBon  why they hide
iu obscurity.

there should be created a splendid
market were attention given to this
new branch of the trade. The development of the fisheries industry
is a most important matter for
British Columbia. It is extremely
gratilyirg to note that Mr. Ball,
in a late letter to the World, in-
viteB correspondence from   all   in
touch with British Columbia conditions and in a position to develop the trade in food fish products
along new lines, assuring them his
cordial and active support in finding consignees in England who
will be glad to handle such British
Columbia goodB. The fishery industry of this province today iB
known in England selely through
the exportation thither of canned
salmon, The splendid halibut,
sent in cold storage, should be
equally popular. And there are
the skill, the oolachanB, and a
dozen other western fishes fit for
table delicacies, that' have yet to
be introduced to the English consumer. The scope for industrial
growth in this direction invites
attention from western business
men.—Vancouver World.
As Applied to the Recovery
of Gold From Placer
A British preferential duty
against foreign wheat would force
the American farmer to set up a
howl for admission to hiB old market in England. The English duly
on wheat would not make bread
much dearer in England, but it
would make protection a great
deal cheaper in the United States.
United States farmers would not
stop growing wheat, but they would
slop raising protectionist majorities.
Their discontent would force the
Government at Washington to bargain for reciprocity with England
on the basis of a United States
market for English industrial products in return for an English
market for Amerioan agricultural
products.—Victoiia TimeB.
John BurnB, M. P., he of labor
fame, his given his pronouncement
in favor of the British army. The
burly hero of the British working
man is nothing if not strenuous in
his methods, and though a man of
peace, decided to form his opinions
on the British army at first hand.
His procedure would scarcely commend itself into a majority of his
colleagues in the Imperial House,
for this is what John did. He
tramped for eight solid days with a
regiment in the recent army manoeuvres, covering in that period fully
200 miles. Not being qualified to
share the army rations, he trusted
to the occasional wayside inn for
his meals which invariably were
of the utraoBt simplicity, usually
consisting of bread and cheese for
breakfast, cheese and bread for
dinner, and bread and cheese for
supper, helped out occasionally by
the fragrant and muscular onion
It is not to be wondered that this
rich diet took no less than fourteen
pounds off John's weight in the
brief period of his pilgrimage. He
nevertheless describes his trip as
one of the most interesting and en
joyable experiences of his liie, and
declares that even the War Office
has failed to spoil the men of the
British army. Mr. Burns is no
longer a young man, and his
thoroughness in getting to the
heart ol fads in the face of physical
hardships whioh would appeal to
many a person of half his age, is
greatly to hiB credit; while hiB
verdict in the army's favor is, coming from such a man, a very satisfactory one.—Victoria Colonists.
While all good British Colum
bians are earnestly endeavoring
to stimulate and extend the profitable export trade of this province,
particularly that portion of this
trade which seeks the markets of
the motherland, it iB a surprising
thing to find—ou the authority of
the commercial agent of the city of
Birmingham—that instead of
working actively with commercial
far sightedneBB and enterprise lo
extend the scope and charaoter of
their trade, the salmon canters of
this province are apparently indifferent even to overtures for an
extension of   their   own   business.
Mr. Peter B. Ball, the Canadian
commercial agent referred to, has
heretofore pointed out the opportunities for doing business in England not only in British   Columbia

The Mining Recorder of Denver
reports that V. B. Finley aDd H.
L. Orr, of Port Collins, have just
completed a number of experiments
with a new system of precipitation
that promises to revolutionize the
process of saving line gold aud supersede all methods now employed.
The new process is designed to
save the precious metals from tbe
slime of stamp mills in which thou
sands of dollars are lost annually,
as well to recover the fine gold
from placer diggings. The machine is simplicity itself, and tbe
costs of operation iB nominal. The
water in the main vat iB kept at a
certain level by means of an automatic valve, which also furnishes
an outlet for the coarse Band and
gravel. At the head of this tank
oil flows onto the water, over a
blanket, and into a second vat,
from which it is automatically returned to the head of the first tank
and in this the oil is kept moving
continuously and evenly over the
surface of the water. The slime to
be treated is run over a set of dividing bars into the main vat and
the coarse matter falls to the bottom, passing out through the
automatic valve while the oil,
which acts as a precipitant, gathers
the fine gold and deposits it on the
blanket, returning then to the
head of the the machine to be used
over and over again. The loss of
oil is estimated at lees than five
oents per cubic yard of placer
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen 6ity, 8. Q.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of oamp in the province, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mineB have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the ereotion of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Pacific Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being Bold
for iu Similkameen.   Come in before tbe boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisioual poiut, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Pacific coast tbey will become the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill ia
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being alt
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, which is located iu the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia.

But    Little   Water   May
Furnish Enormous
email loss, and the opportunities
thUB offered for the conbination of
a number of email plants into one
of considerable magnitude, serve to
direct attention to a number ol
water powers which are now totally ignored.
The popular idea of an available
water power is a moderate fall on a
stream of considerable eizo, located
within a few yards of a railroad.
The power which can be obtained
at any power site on a stream is
the produot of the weight of the
water pressing the site per unit of
time multiplied by the height of
the prependicular fall obtainable,
and for the same total power theBe
quantities very inversely; that is
if the head be doubled the quantity
of water may be diminished by a
half and the resultant power will
be the same; if the head be multiplied by ten, then one-tenth the
quantity of water will yield the

I CHAPTER III (Continued j
My next visit was to an Etruscan barber, who was shaving all
and sundry under a green white
awning, in a pleasant little piazza.
To him I sat, and while he reaped
my antique stubble, with many an
ezolamation of surprise and disgust
at its toughness, my thoughts wandered away to the train of remembrances the bath slave's discovery
had started. Again I thought of
Blodwen and my little one; the
seaport, with its golden beaches,
and the quiet pools where the trout
and salmon of an evening now and
again shattered the crystal mirror
of the surface in their sport as Bhe
and I sat upon some grassy bank
and talked of village statecraft, of
conquests over petty princelings, of
oropa and harvests, of love and
war. Then, again, I thought of
the Roman galleys, and Caesar the
penman autocrat; of tbe British
oamp, and, lastly, the great mischance whioh had, and yet had
not, ended me.
'Ah! that was a bad slash, indeed, Sir, wasn't it?' queried the
barber in my ear. 'May I ask in
what war you took it?'
This very echo of my fanoy oame
bo Btartlingly true, I sprang to my
feet and glowered upon him.
'0 culler of herbs,' I said, '0
trespasser along the verge of mystery and medicine'—pointing to the
dried things and electuaries with
which, in common then with his
kind, hia booth was stooked—
'where got you the power of reading minds?'
He shook his head vaguely, as
though he did not understand,
pointing to my neok, and replying
he knew naught of what my
thoughts might have been, but
there, on my shoulder, was obvious
evidenoe of the slash' he had alluded to.
I took the steel mirror he offered
me, and, sure enough, I saw a monstrous white seam upon my tawny
skin, healed and well, but very
obvious after the bath and shaving.
'Why, Sir, I have dressed many
a wound in my time, but that
must have been about as bad a one
as a man could get and live. How
did it happen?
'Oh! I forget just now.'
'Forget 1 Then you must have a
marvellously bad memory. Why,
a thing like that one might remember for four hundred years!' eaid
the BagaciouB little barber, bending
his keen eyes on me in a way that
was unoomfortable. In faot, he
soon made me so ill at ease, being
very reluotant that my secret
should pass into possession of the
town through hie garrulous tongue,
that I hastily paid him another of
those antigue green coinB of mine,
and passed on again down the
great wide street.
Even he who lives two thousand
years is still the serf of time, therefore I oannot describe all the
strange things I saw in that beautiful foreign oity set down on the
native English land.   But present
ly I tired, and, having become a
Roman by exchanging my sheepskins for a fine scarlet toga, over a
military cuirass of closo fitting
steel, inlaid, after the fashion, with
turquoise and gold enamel, sandals
upon my feet, and a short sword at
my side, f sought somewhere to
sleep. First, I ohanced upon a
little house set back from the main
thoroughfare, and over the door a
withered bush, and, underneath it,
on a label was written thus:
Hie Habitat Felicitas.
'Ah!' I said, as I hammered at
the portal with the brass knob of
my weapon, 'if, indeed, happiness
is landlord here, then Phra the
Phoenician is the man to be his
tenant!' But it would not do.
Bacchus was too bibulous in that
little abode, and Cupid to blind
and indiscriminate. So it was left
behind, and presently an open
villa was reached where travellers
might rest, and here I took a chamber on one side of the square of
marble courtyard, facing on a garden and fountain, and looking over
a fair stretch of country.
No sooner had I eaten than, very
ourious to understand the nature of
the bath slave's discoveries upon
my skin, I went to the disrobing
room of the private baths, and, discarding my gorgeous cuirass, and
piling the gilded arms and silken
wrappings with which a new born
vanity had swathed me, in a corner
I stood presently revealed in the
common integument — the one
immutable fashion of humanity. But rarely before bad
the naked human body
presented bo much diversity as
mine did, . I was mottled and pictured, from my waist upwards, in
most bewildering manner, all in
blue and purple tints, just as the
slave had said. There were more
pictures on me than there are on
an astrologer's celestial globe, and
as I turned hither and thither, before my great burnished metal
mirror, a whole constellation of
dim uncertain meanings rose and
set upon my sphere! Now this
was the more curious, because, as
I have said, I had never in my life
submitted me for a moment lo the
needle and unguents of those who
in British times mad a practice of
the art of tattooing. I had seen
young warriors under that painful
process, and had stood by as they
yelled in pain and reluotant
patienoe while the most elaborate
designs grew up, under the stolid
draughtsman's hands, upon their
quivering cutiole. But, to Bold
wen'e grief, who would have had
me equal to any of her tribesmen
in pattern as in place, I had ever
soorned to be made a mosaic of
superstition and nourishes. How,
then, had this mighty maze, this
piotorial web of blue myth and
marvel, grown upon me during tbe
night time of my Bleep? On studying it closely it evolved itself into
some order, and, though that night
I made not very muoh of it, yet, as
time went on and my body grew
sleek and fair with good living, the
design oame up with constantly
increasing vigour. Indeed, the
narrative I translated from it was
bo absorbingly interesting to one in
my melancholy circumstances that
away to my closet and mirror to
agaiu aud again I would hurry
see what new detail, what subtle deduction of stroke or line, had come
into view upon the soroll of the
strangest diary that ever was written.
For, indeed, it was Blodwen's
diary that circled me thuB. It began in the small of my baok with
the year of my demise upon the
Druid altar, and ever as Bhe wrote
it she must have rolled, with tender
industry, her journal over, and
so worked up from my baok, in a
splendid widening zone of token
and hieroglyphic, for twenty changing seasons, until my chest waB
reaohed, and there the tale ran out
iu a thin and tremulous way .which
it made my heart ache to understand.
There is no need to describe exactly the mode of deduction or how
1 came to oomprehend without key
or help the sense of the things before me, but you will understand
my wits were sharp in the quest,
and once the main scheme of the
idea waB understood the rest came
easily enough. The Princess, then,
had taken a sheaf of corn as her
symbol of the year. There were
upon me, and I judged their very
varying sizes were intended is to indicate good or bad harvest seasons
in the territories of my careful
chieftaiuess. Round these central
signe she had grouped such other
marks or outlines as served to hint
the changing fortunes of Ihe times.
There were heads of oxen by each
sheaf, varying in size according to
the condition of her herds, and
fishes, big or small, to indioate
what luck her salmon spearsmen
had met with by the tuneful rapids
of that ancient Btrcam I knew so
Following these early designs
was one that interested me greatly.
The gentle chieftaineBS had, when
I left her, expectations of another
member to her tril e of her own
providing. I had thought when
we Bhould have beaten the Romans
to hurry back, and mayhap be in
time to welcome this little one, but
you know how I was prevented; and
now here upon my skin, nigh over
to my heart, was the sketch and
outline of what seemed a email
new born maid, all be-swaddled in
the British fashion and very lovingly linned. But what waB more
curious, was that its wraps were
turned back from itB baby shoulder,
and there, to my astonished interpretation, in that silent maternal
narrative was just the likeness,
brood, lasting, indelible, of tbe
frightful scar I wore mysell! Long
I pondered upon this. Had that
red haired slave princess by some
chance reoeived me back—perhaps
at Sempronius's compassionate
hands— all hurt as I was, and had
that portentous wound set its seal
during anxious vigils upon the unborn babe? I oould not guess—I
oould but wonder—and wondering
still, pass on to what came next.
Here was a graphic picture, no
bigger than the palm of my hand,
and not hard to unriddle. An
eagle—no boubt the Roman one—
engaged in fierce conflct with a
beaver—that being Blodwen's
favourite tribal sign, for there were
many of those animals upon her
river. Jove! how well 'twas done!
There were the flying feathers, and
the fur and the turmoil and the
litter of the fight, and well I guess
ed the proud Roman bird—that
day he brought my gallant tribe
under the yoke—had lost many a
stalwart quill, and damaged many
a lordly pinion I
Ariel, besides these main records
of this fair and careful cbanoel-
loress of her state, there were
others that moved me none the
less. Yes! by every gloomy spirit
that dwelt in the misty shadows of
the Aritish oaks, it gave me a hot
flush of gratified revenge to see—
there by the symbol of the first
year—a severed, bleeding head,
still crowded with the Druid oak.
'Oh! oh! Dhuwallon, my friend,'
I laughed, as I guessed tbe meaning of that bloody sign, 'so they
tripped you up at last my crafty
villain. By all the fieDds of your
abominable worship. I should like
to have seen the stroke that made
at grizzly trophy! Well, I oan
guess how it came about! Some
Blighted tribesman who saw me die
peached upon you. Liar and traitor! I can see you stand in that
old British hall, and strong in your
sanctity and cunning, making your
wicked version of the fight and my
undoing, and then methinks I see
Blodwen leap to her feet, red and
fiery with her anger. Accursed
priest! how you must have sioken-
ed and shrunk from her fierce invective, the headlong damnation of
her bitter accusation with all the
ready evidenoe with whioh she supported it. Mayhap your cheeks
were as pale that day, good friend,
as your infernal vestments, and
first you frowned and pointed to the
signs and symbols of your office,
and pleaded your high appointment before the assembled people
against the answering of the charge.
And then, when that would not do,
you whined and cringed and called
her kinswoman. Oh, but I oan
fanoy it, and how my pretty Princess—there upon her father's steps
—scorned and oursed you before
them all, and how some ready faithful hand struck you down, and
how they tore your holy linen
from you and dragged you screaming to the gateway, and there upon
the theehold log struck your wicked
head from your abominable shoulders! By the sacred mistletoe, I
oan read my Blodwen's noble anger in every puncture of that revenge commemorating outline!'
Here again, in the years that
followed, it pleasured me to see her
little State grow strong and wide.
At one time see typified the coming
and deduction of two peak sailed
Bouthern pirates, and then the
buildiug of a new stockade. She
also made (perhaps to the worship
of my manes!) a mighty cirole.
It began with a single upright on
my Bide. The next year there
were two. In the summer that
followed she crossed them by a
third great slab, aud so on for tea
years the tribesmen Beemed to have
toiled and laboured until they had
auoh a temple of the sun as must
have given my sweet heathen vast
pleasure to look upon! She feared
comments and portents much, and
punctured me with them most exactly; Bhe kept her memoranda of
corn potB and stories of hides upon
me like the olever, frugal mother
of her tribe she was; aud now and
then she acquired territory or
made new alliances—printing the
speoial tokens of the heads in a
cirole with her own, until I was
illustrated from wrist to shoulder
—a living lexioon of history.

The coming premier of British

early in the week, at which were
present seven delegates from the
mainland, aud eight from the

leader by a majority of seven.
There were seven names placed in
nomination, who were J. A. Maodonald, of Rossland, W. Mclnnes,
of Alberni, Stuart Henderson of
Ashoroft, president of the Liberal
executive, J. Oliver of Delta, R. L.
Drury, of Victoria, C. W. Munroof
Chilliwack and J. King of Cranbrook, of which the last four named
declined the honor. The first vote
resulted in five votes being given
to each man, the next in one being
taken off Henderson and given to
Mclnnes. A vote was then taken
between Macdonald and Mclnnes,
giving Beven of a majority to Maodonald, and a similar vote between
Macdonald and Henderson gave
exaotly the same result in favor of
the same man, who was duly eleoted leader, putting an end to all
seotional differences between the
island and the mainland, and destroying the laBt veBtige of the

also that it is capable of taking a

Things look very bright for the
new chieftain.   If  the Fernie judicial    reoount   next  week  takes
into consideration the wishes of the
voters,   there   seems  to   be little
doubt but that Fernie will become
a Libeaal   Beat,   leaving   McBride
without a majority, unless he takes
in   the   Socialists.   Publio   works
have had to shut down all over the
provinos, including the  Burnt Basin wagon road up till reoently in
course of construction in this district.   It   is   understood chat   the
banks refuse to advance any more
money.   A bye eleotion, and there
are two pending, will reopen the
ssats for Liberals who stand a fair
ohance of defeating the ministers
sent by   McBride  to the people.
The probability   seems to be that
another election Is imminent, and
the only point  apparently  worthy
of discussion ia  whether  it will be
called under the auspices of Richard McBride or James Maodonald.
It is urged that MoBride will have
had his ohance and will have failed
and that the Lieutenant-Qovernor
should call upon the leader of the
opposition to form a ministry.
