KILLING   MINING INDUSTRY,
on
s.f.
Editor Prospector:���The Provincial government never struck \
harder blow at the mining industry than when it decided to tax
mines according to the amount of
ore in sight.
Such a law will have the effect
of seriously checking development
work. If the tax had been placed
upon the amount of ore shipped it
would not have such a paralysing
effect, for then the mine owner
could go on developing his property without having to pay out a
large amount in taxes before realizing.
Development work is what the
mining properties need. It is development work that shows up
properties and induces the investment of capital, which is a benefit
to the district and to the province.
But who wants to develop his property just to increase his taxes?
Who wants to uncover ore faster
than he ships it, when he is taxed
for doing so.
The law should  be  suspended
now, and repealed at the first meeting of the provincial parliament.

And    ii'iw     Nelson     uiul     her    (Iikihih
OI.H.'l'V.'li   It.
From Kaslo three steamers carried excursionists to Nelson's celebration of Dominion Day. The
Str. Nelson left her wharf at 4 a.m.
with the few on board who'were in
a mood to start so early, but the
way-sUtions probably gave her a
fair load before she reached Nelson,
At;7 o'clock the Alberta and the
Ainsworth both steamed out of the
harbor, each well laden with gay
excursionists, and at every' way-
landing more came aboard. The
passengers on the Alberta were
treated to many well-rendered
musical selections' by the Kaslo
Band, which; taken with the
many comforts and conveniences
afforded to those who travel on
this steamer, made the trip en
route down and return the pleas-
antest part of the day's outing. ' A
good sized crowd and the base ball
team was present from Rossland.
A foot race won by an Indian; a
Chinaman's race, in which three
started and only one finished; a
hurdle race won by a high jumper
from Spokane, and a foot-ball kicking match were all of the Caledonian sports.
The base ball match, Rossland
vs. Nelson" was the feature of the
day. The latter won, 12 to 9. The
game was closely contested and
well played on both sides until the
eighth inning when the failure of
one of the Rossland men to catch a
ball thrown him allowed Nelson to
make two scores, and evidently
"rattled" the Rossland players a
little for they allowed Nelson to
pcore two more and failed to make
anything themselves in the next
inning. The best work on the
diamond was done by Rossland's
pitcher; though Nelson's pitcher
did well and her players averaged
slightly better than the Rossland
nine, as is shown by the score. A
iarge amount of money changed
hands on bets^ each team being
strongly backed by admirers, and
the purse played for was $150.
The only thing of which Kaslo-
ites made serious complaint was
the scant and poor quality meals
served by the leading hotels; and
when they returned to the boat and
were started home the steward,
cooks and waiters were kept moving lively for about two hours before all appetites were satisfied.
THE SECOND DAY
Was devoted to horse racing. Famous horses were present, from
Okanogan, Spokane, etc. Betting
ran high and considerable money
changed hands.
There were three principal races
���succeeded by a race not on the
programme but gotten up by outsiders.
Jockeying of the rankest sort is
alleged, but who ever heard of a
horse race that didnt provoke any
amount of kicking.

'���SHOULD    MAINTAIN    GOOD   FAITH.
It is of great importance to the
'city that it keep good faith in all
its obligations.   It must first know
'definitely what those obligations
are. There appeared to be a doubt
in the minds of some as   to   the
-nature of the agreement with  the
"railway  company.    We   have   no
'doubt that there are some who believed   that the   exemption   from
'taxation was promised on condition   that   the   railway    be   con-
���structed the same year, and as the
railroad was not constructed that
year nor the next, these persons
naturally conclude that the city is
not under obligations to carry out
its part of the agreement. But a
little investigation shows that the
promise was not conditioned on
(lie construction of the railway at
all���either that year or  any  other
-year.
Mi. Buchanan in his  communi-
' cation to the Prospector last week
let in a flood  of  light  upon   that
'subject, He says, "The condition
was that the Kaslo and Kootenay
Land Co. should sign the petition
to the Lieut.-Governor in Council
asking for the incorporation of
Kaslo  as  a  city."    That Mr. Bu-
'i'hanan is right about tlie terms of
tlie agreement none, perhaps,  will [
' dispute, and as the  matter  stands j
at present the good   faith   of   the
'city is jeopardized.
It seems to us that it would be
well to have a public meeting of
the citizens, where  the knowledge
'which everyone has on this  matter
'can be brought out, anil each -one's
views compared with those of every
' other one, and in the end determine what is just and right toward
the railway company   and   what
' should be done  to  maintain   the
��� good faith of the city.
out of season to bring about free
coinage in this country. We are
in favor of free coinage in this
country without waiting for the

would result from free coinage in

AN INTERNATIONAL NOTORIETY.
WHO Will.   15ELI. THE CAT?
The vain attempt made by
Messrs.   Cleveland,   Morton,   Bu-
' chanan and other goldbugs to find
someone who will answer "Coin's
Financial School" recalls one of
.Esop's fables. It is in point just
now and reads as follows: The
mice summoned a council to decide
how they might best devise means
for obtaining notice of the approach
of their great enemy���the cat.
Among the many plans devised,
the one that found most favor was
' the proposal to tie a bell on the
neck of the cat that the mice, being
' warned by the sound of the tinkle,
might run  away and hide them-
.' selves in their holes   at   his   ap-
��� proach, but when the mice further
debated who among them should
thus "bell the cat" there was no
one found to do it.���Omaha World-
Herald.
Last December a certain party
went over to England with a Cccur
d'Alene mining property for sale.
This was not his first mission of
the kind, and he had no difficulty
in making the acquaintance of
capitalists who were speculating in
mining investments in the" United
States. The report of the property
met with favor with one exception,
and that proved an insuperable
barrier to the sale. They told the
promoter very plainly that unfortunately they already had investments in the Coeur d'Alene
country, and that they didn't propose to put any more money in a
district where a man could not
Work his own mine except at the
dictation of irresponsible persons
who had no interest in the property. It is unfortunate that the
conditions here should warrant the
unenviable reputation that the
Ccsur -d'Alene country has obtained
throughout our own country and
even, as is shown above, among
the mining men of Europe. It
will require several years of a reign
of law to obliterate the evil effects
of the conditions which have disgraced the Cceur d'Alenes the past
three years.���Ex.

HIT THE HULL'S EYE.
International bimetallism upon a
proper ratio is very much to be desired. It would add much to the
Stability of values and would be a
great convenience in the transaction of foreign business. It would
bring about prosperity not only in
this country but throughout the
civilized world. But international
bimetallism, coupled with fre*
coinage, is an iridescent dream. No
such good fortune is likely to come
to bless the masses of the old world
or the new during tlie lifetime of
anyone now living.
Every free coinage man, wher
ever he may reside, is irk favor of
international bimetallism and llB
hopes the time may come when it
may he brought about; Put in the

Plated with  Gold.
The czar has a palace just outside St. Petersburg, known as
Tsarskoe-Selo, which was built by
Catherine the Grcttt. It is of vast
extent and plated over with gold.
It took nearly $1,000,000 worth of
bullion to do the work, and when,
owing to the dampness of the climate, it began to peel off, Catherine ordered it to he painted instead.
Some Russian speculators wanted
to scrape off the gold and melt it
over again, and they offered Catherine $500,000 for' the job. She
sent them to prison for insulting
her with the proposition, and covered the palace with yellow paint.
This palace has rooms walled
with amber. It has a parlor
covered with lapis lazuli, and the
walls and ceiling of one drawing
room are of the finest tortoise shell.
There are 500 apartments in the
palace, and the ball room covers
nearly half an acre.
Its floor is of wooden mosaic;
and there are other rooms in which
the finishing is in ivory, bamboo
and in bronze. The palace must
have cost millions, and it is only
one of a dozen which belongs to
the czar.���Boston Post.

Good   Prospcecting.
There is a surplus of inviting
ields for the prospector this year,
%e would if he cou^ investigate
half a  dozen   localities   at  once.
-There is the well defined, tested
and proved Slocan mineral  belt.
"Enough finds have been made
there within a year past to satisfy
"anyone that the bonanzas which
' it contains are not all found yet.
There is the new   gold   field   on
. Eightmile creek near Silverton. Its
ledge* promise to rival those of
Trail creek. Further down Slocan
lake is tho. Springer creek country
where the ledges carry native silver
and a considerable amount of gold.
' Or, if the prospector is inclined
to go eastward he will find the
Grouse mountain country rich in
copper, and just beginning to   at-
' tract the attention of capitalists.
If he wants a property that he
may have to hold on to two or
three years but which in the end
will brimlfhim big money, he may
seek for it among the large deposits
' of the Lardeau.
Go in any direction from Kaslo
and you will find abundant terri-
'tory that it will pay to prospect.

Blew Up the Jam.
Early in the week a log jam
formed in Kaso creek near the old
"depot" building, and it was necesr
sary to remoie .it to prevent the
lower part of town from being
flooded. Ae the raging waters
were about four feet deep all
around the j an no one cared to
undertake thu job, that is, no one
except Caleb Freeman. He waded
through the torrent, carrying a
bag of powde: upon his shoulder,
and, after placing it where it
where it would do the most good
and lighting the fuse, made   the
ferilous trip back to the shore,
his performance he repeated
many times until the jam was entirely removed.
