Building i�� Completed.
Among the arrivals in Kaslo
during the past few days are
enough railroad contractors to
build a thousand miles of road.
There are 6 from Seattle, 10 or 12
from Spokane, 4 from Montana
and several who may be classified
as "scattering" and will soon be
classified as "scattered." Chief
Contractor Guthrie, Superintendent
Ffolliott and Chief Engineer Tye
are now-preparing the contracts for
these men to sign, and probably
in three days more each walking
boss, Dago driver, Swede herder
and commander of the Celts will
know his fate.
The railroad work is also bring
ing to town a large number of
laborers, some speculators, and not
a few mining men and investors.
The registers of the several hotels
are well filled with names of people
who seem to hail from everywhere.
The richness of the Slocan mines,
jvbich, though famous before, were
proved last winter to be richer and
vaster than ,*was before supposed,
fully merit tlie attention of investors. The rise in silver, which is
now 67^ and bets are offered that
it will go over 70 this month,
taken together with the better and
cheaper transportation facilities
which the Kaslo & Slocan Railway
will offer, not only merit but challenge the greater attention of capitalists to the Slocan,
Silver 67-J,
Belt was re-elected Mayor pf
Spokane.
The Prospector has a large and
increasing circulation.
Kaslo will have a brass band,
with Tom Smith instructor.
A few new buildings are being
erected and many old ones repaired.
Meals at all hours at tho Idaho Restaurant.*
Bridge men and tie cutters are
on hand ready to hew to the line
..on railroad work.
Will the Nelson Miner graciously
permit us to criticise the U. S. government, its incompetent President
boodling officials and monopoly?
.serving courts?
You always get a square meal at the Idaho.*
Prof. Liddy is again in the city,
after a brief visit to Three Forks
and Sandon. He reports work to
commence in the mines on an extensive scale in July.
Mrs. Berry sold   her   house   in
Three Forks to Ira Black's brother
for one hundred dollars   and   has
��one to Pilot Bay to join her hus
band who has employment there.
Idaho Restaurant is open Day and Night.*
The Ladies' Guild of the. Church
of England will meet on Tuesday
tlie 16th inst. at 3 p. m. in the
Lakeview to discuss ways and
means for taking part in the
Queen's birthday celebration. A

Owned by a Company which CUvei.   Km-

and Supplies the Town with
Electric   XJulits    and
Water Works.
It is not the intention in this
brief article to give a detailed description of the mammoth works
of The Kootenay Mining & Smelting Co. That has been done before; The company's concentrator
is now running, crushing 300 tons
of rock a day. The fires are burning in the roasters and the smelter
itself is to be started up in a day
or two.
From January 1st to May 1st,
15,2.55 tons of ore were taken from
the company's mine, the Line Bell,
and delivered at the concentrator.
During the SO days that the
smelter has been operated (500 tons
of bullion have been turned out
and shipped. The capital stock-
is owned principally by E. \V.
Herrick of Minneapolis and A. J!.
Hendryx of New England. W. T'..
Gordon, an experienced smelter
man from Montana, is the efficient
superintendent. Hifi office men
are C E. Ckik ami j. J. McFeeter.
The captains of tlie company's
boats which ply between the Pilot
Bay wharf and the Blue Bell,
Ainsworth and neighboring points
are Capt. Allen Lean and Capt.
Sam Lovatt.
The Galena Trading Co. has a
very large and well filled store at
Pilot Bay. J. I). Marsden, a prince
of good fellows, is manager. Gil-
ker & Wells have recently erected
a building and opened a store
there. Al. Crittenden is in charge.
There are three hotels. Capt,
Spaulding, a retired sea captain,
full of many reminicences of the
time when he "sailed the seas over"
keeps the big white house on (he
hill. Dave Clark keeps the Hotel
Clark and Mr. Blanchard the Pilot,
Bay Hotel. A pretty school ma'ni
from Victoria teaches the school.
Water works and electric lights
operated from the smelter supply
the town.   Watch Pilot Bay  grow.

The oldest town on Kootenay
Lake; the town famous for her hot
springs; came through the financial depression all right. Tho
principal store in the place is kept
by H. Geigerieh, a name familiar
to every reader of the Ppospecioh.
Dr. Henry keeps the drug ston-
and post office. The three hotels
are kept by A. A. McKinnon, Chas.
Olsen and John McNeal. Alex
McLeod handles the heavy freight
business. Assayer A. Stolberg is
constantly engaged at the No. 1
mine. Warner & Strobeck is the
leading real estate firm.
D. W. McVicker and L. Shaw
who operate the No. 1 mine have
their offices in the town connected
with the mine by telephone. The
Prospector hopes and believes',
that their business will increase
until they will need the big hotel
built by Rory McLeod for their
offices. kt-m-r"~

BY W.  D.  PRATT.
For several years past the people
of the United States have been
.governing themselves very badly,
They must either do better or give
it up for a bad job.
Mr. Mara has moved for an en-,
enquiry into the re-instatement of
Fitzsimmons as warden of the New
Westminster penitentiary. Mr.
Mara's motion is/ .imely and in the
direction of maintaining a government free from scandal.
Rossland is to be afflicted with
H miners' union. A properly conducted miners' union might be of
���some benefit to the members, but
nine times out of ten they are so
badly managed as to be an injury
not only to the community but to
the members themselves.
���* .tj.ki.vm.��� tm,\.!K.��vmxaxz**'.*r*>*'mMiamai
within the United States.
"The reason is apparent, and
when we learn the-lesson ourselves
we shall have taken a great-' step
forward. The authorities of Brit?
ish Columbia will immediately
cancel the license of a man i who
jumps a claim without holding
good proof of his rights, and he is
thus debarred from owning or locating or operating a mine in the
district. With all its bustle and
activity Trail creek is today as
orderly as .the little village of
Davenport in the Big Bend. Of
what booming mining camp in
Washington or Idaho could as
much be said?"���J. B. Jones in
Spokesman-Review.
The Tribune equivocates in replying to direct questions which
might bo answered by yes or no.
As the Tribune is a notice in politics and wc regard it compassionately, we will not further embarass
it by probing it with more questions while the present lull in
Dominion politics lasts.
Free Press Ottawa correspondent
on the Manitoba school question
'.says:   That Bowell has   erred   in
fendingthe remedial order in the
way. it   was   sent,   everyone   now
agrees.   Some   people   down   here
do not quite understand the position and many have asked me, supposing that as a citizen of Winnipeg   I    should   know   something
about what the Manitoba  legislature will do.   I have  replied  that
the Manitoba legislature   has   no
option.    The order is   absurd   on
the face of it; one that no class in
the Dominion expects to   be   accepted in such shape, and that the
awkward way in which the government has handled the matter leaves
the Manitoba people only the one
course.viz.: to decline to act on the
order received.   "Will   they  then
Make some counter.proposition?" is
the next question  asked.   No   one
can   safely   prophesy    until    he
knows, but my   answer   has   been
that I do not suppose the   Manitoba legislature will do anything.
They have been told to do an impossible thing and they can't and
won't try to do it.   The   fault   is
with the people who asked them
and the responsibility   of   finding
the solution is  with   Ottawa.   It
wouid be idle   for   the   Manitoba
legislature to send out baloon proposals, even if they were   inclined
to do so,  without   knowing   what
has been promised by the   Ottawa
government or what would satisfy
anyone.   The correspondent is Mr.
.-St. John, manager of the paper.
Northport News:
The big mining men from all
over the United States are visiting
Rosssland daily, and nearly everyone of them pronounce the Trail
mines the greatest in North America.
Two gangs of men are working
on the Red Mountain railroad���,
one at Rossland and the other near
the line. The leading officials say
the road will be completed and
trains running over it before next
winter.
The Mitchell Bros, arrived in
Northport from Spokane Saturday
with fifteen magnificent four horse
teams, and are now hauling ore
for the War Eagle and Josie over

"One reason why Trail creek has
proved so attractive to capitalists,"
said a Chicago man who came
down a few days ago, "���and I regard it as second not even to the
quality of the ore���is the admirable laws made and enforced by the
Canadian government in behalf of
investors in mining property. At
first Trail creek was undeveloped,
of course. Chicago and New York
men felt freer to invest the money
that is being used to
prove the true character of the
camp because they knew the conditions I speak of. There are no
troubles, no strikes, no claim
jumper, and comparatively little
litigation. It is a fact that today
capital is more willing to take
hazards across the line than it
wiuld  be  With  better   proBpects

SKNATOB    STEWART'S     SARCASTIC
����'���' JiBtTKB'   TO  ' PBESIPENT   ,;':"
���'���'���'���      CLEVELAND.
Washington, May 1.���The following letter has has been mailed
by Senator Stewart' to President
Cleveland:
* "When I last wrote yon I did
not suppose that I would be Called
upon bo soon to renew my congratulations for your conspicuous
bravery in promoting the policy of
other countries. The joint success
of yourself ancV Lord Kimberly in
planting the British flag and extending British rule over Nicaragua is applauded by every loyal
subject of the queen. The people
of the United States will view with
much satisfaction the preparations
which you and Lord Kimberly are
making to pre?ent the claims of
British and American subjects who
in the interest of the mother country conspired to overthrow the republican government of Hawaii.
The fact that the conspirators were
unsuccessful aggravates the crime
of the republic in maintaining its
constitutional government and
furnishes you and Lord Kimberly
ample justification for demanding
impossible reparation to make an
excuse for planting the British flag
and extending British rule over
the only remaining outpost in the
Pacific, where military establishments by an unfriendly power
would menace the commerce of the
United States.
"The object lesson of your broad
and comprehensive statesmanship
is already instructive, when you
have fully secured the protection of
England for our extended sea coast
on both oceans, and the construction of the Nicaraguan canal at
the expense of the United States
for the benefit of Great Britain,
your economy will be appreciated.
"Although the policy of relying
on British statesmanship is not
new, you have enlarged and carried into effect that policy in such
a manner as to make the
American people realize that the
sovereign power to coin money and
maintain a financial policy of our
own is inconsistent with that
brotherly love and cordial submission which we owe to the country that gave birth to our ancestors and to whose fostering care we
are indented for life with such liberty as the mother country will
.graciously bestow.
"May we indulge in the hope
that your fidelity to the British
crown has secured you such influence as will enable you to induce the mother country to take
charge of and regulate our commercial relations in such a manner
as will remove all the pleasant and
unnatural disagreements between
the two countries with regard to
tariff legislation? Why should
England be less willing to regulate
���our customs duties than to manage
our foreign relations and to control
our financial policy?
"Keep an eye single to the glory
and renown and the imperishable
name you will leave to posterity
by achieving a union of 125,000,-
���000 of English-Bpeaking people
under the unselfish rule of the
British crown."

Briar creek is the name given to
the new camp, situated between the
Providence and Summit camps, by
the diBcoverers of the Big Win4y
mineral claim, Messrs. Thomet,
Bennerman and Peterson, who recorded the Big Windy on Apr. 5.
There is a 3$ foot vein, which
*hows quite an amount of native
copper. There was an opportunity for the discoverers to name the
new camp after one   or   other   of
their'   names,   but   modesty,   not!
necessity, was the mother of an invention in thiB case, and ��he cree'��
has been well named.

Louis Lebert has constructed a
wagon for the stage company that
will be the boss of the road. It
has seats for 10 passengers and is
polished until it shines. Bob
Woods is so delighted with it that
he sleeps in it o' nights.
Acting under a resolution 'passed
by the City Council, Mayor John
Keen called on the Gold Commissioner in Nelson Monday in the
the interest of the Kaslo-Slocan
wagon road. The Gold Commissioner promised to go at once via
Nakusp to Three Forks, and, coming over the road from there, would
determine what amount is needed
for repairs.
To the Pole by Baloon.
The theory lias often been advanced, observes a contemporary,
that, if ever the discovery of the
North Pole is to be made, it must
be by some means of serial transit,
and the proposition to make a
baloon voyage across the polar
region has been suggested from
time to time by would-be explorers-.
This year, for the first time, the
project has taken tangible shape,
and the attempt is to be made under conditions which justify ii
reasonable hope of success. The
Royal Swedish Academy, under
the direct patronage of King Qscar'
and with the financial assistance
of a number of prominent Swedish
gentlemen, has secured the services
of S. S. Andre, a distinguished engineer and scientific aeronaut, who
is preparing the aparatus necessary
and will start on his daring voyage
in the summer of 1896.
The starting point for the baloon
voyage will be the Norwegian islands off the northwestern coast
of Spitzbergen. The baloon to be
used will be made in Paris, and
will have a diameter of 72-| feet,
will have a double silk cover, and,
it is estimated, will float thirty
days without refilling. The car
will be a strongly built gondola,
with rooms for sleeping and eating
And a dark room for photographic
purposes, wiU be equipped with
sails for steering, and will be bal
Tasted by drag ropes.
j The voyrfge as planned will be
from' the starting point directly
A'cjroSS th'4 Pole .to Borifig sound,
WtthceioT #,394 miles, and under
favorable conditions will not occupy more than six days. As the
time will be midsummer, when
there is continuous daylight, geo-
grapical and meteorological observations can be made every hour,
and photographs will likewise be
taken at regular intervals.
Many Arctic explorers, notably
Baron Nordenskjold, the discoverer
of the northwest passage, favor the
scheme as more likely to be practicable than any yet suggested,
and feel confident that Andree's
voyage will be successful, and
result in solving for all time the
polar problem.
