General, Resigns—The Railway

The people who " have no use "
railway competition would try to ru:

livery vehicle than a boy's handcart.
The action of Ex-Premier Martttf
ing with the government is looked upon
as suggesting an alliance which may
Suit in Mr. Martin taking a place in
provincial   cabinet.    ;1:
The government railroad measure has
been introduced in the house,, but the
conditions imposed are likely to prevent
the construction of a competitive railway
from the coast to the Kootenay. The
government may. modify the conditions,
but no official statement has been made.
The effect of the bill is to take away
from the legislative assembly all author-
-lty'to' sii^rviie~the' construction™?

government power to absolutely sacr

Edward' witnessed the most gorgeous

To the Editor Priuc
Sir,—Unlike the majority of
want the people of Princeton to know
definitely where I stand in regard
day closing. A rumor has started through
some source that I appealed to our o
for Sunday closing. Tins I must
phatically deny, as I am strictly in favor
of what is called\a f wide-open town."
Sunday closing will not stop this daily
abuse, neither will it benefit in the least
degree; for once that craving desi
established it is almost impossible foi
victim to pass a day without the necessary
-".bracers."- He will procure enough o:
Saturday to suffice lor Sunday. There i
no life too fast for. the western man (s
few exceptions.) - Rossland, with its'
preachers, priests rnd Salvation Army,
does not stop the vice. Miners as a rule
work from two to six months,
from $100 to $300. With this money
they start out for the "liveliest city neat
them. The Slocan, Rossland and Boundary miners go to Spokane. The miners
of •Vancouver Island and Texada Island
go to Seattle. We see these two lovely
•cities building: with Canadian money.
The success ofthe Canadians in South
Africa is due to fighting the Boers on
their own plan ; and if Canada wishes to
:r people and money and build
es she must fight the United
States the same. Give, the people their
freedom. Allow them to drink and
gamble without limit, for there is no
game at cards that the people do not and
play regardless of chances against
them, and there is no brothel with too
many dancing fairies. Ii Canada and
tbe United-States would pass a law pro-
hibiting the manufacture of intoxicating
liquors it would be a godsend to all, and
would, no doubt, meet the approval of |
every sane person. Canada could not
dertake it without suffering a seri
financial strain. Enough money is being
taken across the line without compelling
the good drinking Canadians (and most
of them are) to take it all, with the «
ception of a few dollars spent for food
their native land. All our rapidly growing mining camps require
sary police to protect civilians against
insult from the hands or mouths of|
drunken men.. My solution to the problem is, force attendance to the public
schools, for only by continued education
will the children, see the folly of their
forefathers.

OTTER PLAT NOTES.
Messrs. Alex. McDonald and Mclntyre
passed through the Government Town on
their way to Aspen .Grove, where they
are largely interested in copper proper-
- Mr. J: 'H. Jackson' has placed a rope
from Otter to his ranch,von£he opposite
side of theTulameen rivprvwhich makes
it convenient for /Mtfspectors crossing
during high water.
Burns said : "If we could see ourselves
as others see us." DeBarro says:' "If
the Dunsmuir government could see our
resources as they are, we would have a
railroad to move our coal ana mine al
forthwith."
The establishment of a post office at
Otter would be a great convenience, and
would, together with the store just about
to open, aid very materially in the more!
rapid development of this extensive!
mining section.

Grand Forks, and expects ta return in

community.
 THE
MINING.
A despatch from Greenwood says:
" During the past few days Rock creek
and its tributary streams have once more
become a niecca for placer gold huuters
to.stake claims. The excitement is principally due to the operations' of a local
company that has acquired leases and is
now working below historic White s bar
on this creek. Within two weeks the
company will commence booming and
profitable clean-up is anticipated.'
"As a consequence placer land along
the adjacent creeks is being rapidly
staked, especially so along Baker c
and the south foik of Rock creek, where
pay dirt is found. Alex. BroomfieldJ
Bart Ingrahatn and others have acquired
leases on the former creek and A. D.
Sykes, J. G. Billings, C. H. Pair and
Sproat have recorded on the south fork.
Since its discovery in the early sixties,
Rock creek placer diggings, under t
most primitive methods are reported
have yielded over a quarter of a million
of gold. Miners are apparently satisfied
that If bed rock can be reached much
more yellow metal will be discovered]
During the summer extensive operations
by booming the creeks will be prosecuted. Along the company's ground and
on Baker creek returning prospectors say
there is yet much rich dirt that will yield
handsomely. Placer mining is also in
full swing below the falls on Boundary
creek, where sluicing is being carried on,
and good results are looked for."
It is not generally known that mica has
become a marketable commodity, but it
would appear from the following despatch
from Revelstroke that it will figure materially in the exports of British Columbia
in the future: "A number of people ofl
Revelstroke have recently formed a syndicate to prospect in the Big Bend district
for the purpose of examining into the
mica deposits recently found in that district. There are two claims carrying
mica situated on the north side of Sand
creek, about two and o lie-half miles below Tete Jaune Cache. The veins are reported to be about 15 feet wide and are
traceable for quite a distance on the surface. A number of chutes of excellent
mica have been found, and many samples
have been taken running from 3 to 5 to
5110 of very fine quality.
"The two claims referred to are located not far from the Bonanza property,
which shipped about $30,000 worth of |
mica in 1899 at a big expense in tne
way of transportation. It is expected
that better communication will be made
between Revelstroke and Tete Jaune
Cache, and when this is brought about it
' will help greatly in the development of]
these mica deposits."
A telegram states that valuable gold
deposits have been discovered in Mani-
A Nelson fisherman states that last fall
he found and destroyed several fish traps
at Slocan Junction, and suggests that
these artifices explain the heavy catches I
there when the fish are hot taking other
bait.

A RECREANT GOVERNMENT.
at—a government
false to its trust, bartering away the
best interests of the country. Such is
the disheartening spectacle being enacted
at Victoria by a government supposedly
of the people. The railroad policy outlined by the Dunsmuir-Turner syndicate
was, perhaps, intended to represent the
feelings of the people, but appeared
strangely savoring of the scent of " the
The bill, as introduced by the government, with its amendments, shows
conclusively its intention to thwart competition. That the government does not
wish us' to see that competition is very
evident. If we wanted further proof
than that which is already afforded we
■have only to turn to the proposed
amendment introduced in the house by
Mr. Hunter, with the sanction of the
government. The ameudment reads:
C " Mr. Hunter, to move to amend the
motion of Mr. Helmcken, re Coast-
Kootenay railway, in   part,   as follows:
" ' By striking out all the words in
the said motion after the word ' ability,'
in the third line, and inserting the following : ' And having, or capable of obtaining, independent eastern connections to build such railway as an independent competitive line with the Canadian Pacific rai'way, the Great North
era railway, the Northern Pacific railway, and the Esquimau & Nanaimo
railway, and the branches of said railways ; and, further, that the company
accepting such bonus should not be promoted by any of ^the said railway companies, or by any person or persons
acting directly or indirectly in the interest of said railway companies.' "A
This is the battle gage thrown to the
people by this puerile combination,
whose best interests thirst for the immediate building of a competitive line.
v..The thwarting of a competitive line
at the present stage of the country's
growth means years of stagnation,
when an encouragement given by such
a line would mean a tremendous up-
bnilding, such as has never been recorded  in   the  history  of the province.
The people's duty is plain—to at once
show that the canker af monopoly has
run its course, and that the time for
applying a cautery has arrived.
The street corners in New Havei
Conn.', will soon be adorned by publi
telephone boxes, after the fashion of fire-
alarms. Each box will ordinarily be
locked, but the simple process' of drop*
ping a coin into a Slot will open it. A
-connection can then be obtained by the
same method as at any public pay station, a directory being hung by the side
of the instrument. The door of the box
will be so arranged that it will shut automatically when the receiver is hung up
after use. It is not explained how it is
