the District had been Provided with
Proper Transportation Facilities.
For weeks past ore from the
Slocan mineB has been accumulat-
f~r mg at Three Forks and at the concentrator spur faster than the
:: flakusp & Slocan railway can
handle it. At the present time
there is about 700 tons in the
Slocan Star warehouse, 150 tons
each in the Reco and Noble Five
warehouse and 700 tonB of Alamo,
Idaho, Cumberland and Yakima

About 400 tonr remain, at Nakltsp,

As the Nakusp & Slocan. when
cunning, moves only four loaded
oars a day, the blockade is likely
to last for some time.
But this is not the worst feature
of the case. There is nit half as
much ore mined ns there would be
if the district had good railway facilities. The Kaslo-Slocan railway
is greatly needed and its construction will be hailed as a boon to the

Clean up*
A vigorous cleaning up of back
alleys and and otner places where
refuse matter has been thrown during the winter should be inaugurated in every town. The statutes

Mr. Kemp's editorial supervision
of The Prospkctor during our absence across the boundary has been
a treat to our readers and duly appreciated by them.
There is something wrong with
the way through telegrams from
Slocan points to Spokane are
handled at Nelson. There is a hitch
in the transferring that seriously
impairs the usefulness of the "hither,

The shortage of reading matter
this week is due, first, to the pressure of leaal notices upon our columns' and, secondly, to going to
press early, so that the press may
be ready ��o ship to Kaslo on what
will probably be the last freighting
by sleds this winter.
John Regan has discovered
another ledge on the Last Chacce.
About fifty feet from the mouth of
the incline shaft he ran a tunnel
into the mountain, and in twenty
feet crosscut a vein carrying four to

wjth tho one upon which he has
been working, but djps slightly

sickness comes when least expected.
What are you going to do about it?
Are you points to wait until it overtakes you before procuring the
necessary remedy? Do not hesitate.
From Holden's Pharmacy secure at
once remedies that will give instant
relief. For coughs and colds aitd
colds and affections of the lungs
and throat the Alaskan Lung
Balsam acts like a charm���a sure
cure. If you have a sick headache,
a sluggish liver, pain in the Kidneys, impoverished blood, use Dr.-
Potts' celebrated Stoma''h and
Liver Pills -the best selling to-day.
For all aches and pains use Planter's Pain Balin, an internal and
external remedy giving instant relief, a curative that will prove 4
real.friend to every household. For'
summer complaint, diarrhoea,dys- j
entery, pains and cramps in the
stomach use Dr. Roll's Vegetable
Cholera Cordial, the never-failing
and best known remedy on the
market. For'purifying the blood
use our compound syrup of sarsii-
p'arilla, a pleasant, safe and effectual
The above remedies can only be

Extract   From the Suppren��ed   Edition,
Two copies rtf the Kootenay
Mail, dated Revelstoke, March 9th.
1895, have been received here. One
copy was issued by R. YV. Northey,
the editor, after he had been "dismissed," arrested and tried for
trespass; the other copy was issued
by the directors of the printing
company after they had "fired"
Northey, obtained possession of the
office and. suppressed the Northey
edition. From the suppressed
edition we learn that Northey was
brought before a certain justice
named Fraser on a, charge of trespass. Fraser appears to he a
judicial rosette who outcreases
Benjamin Hefiry Lee; our own
Benjamin, comes upon the scene.
We let the' suppressed edition tell
the rest:
Mr. Northey requested that Mr.
Lee be allowed to act as counsel
for him, which was granted.
Mr. Lee objected to the jurisdiction of the court, and claimed that
there was no statute in British
Columbia under which one J. P.
could try such a case. The objection was overruled.
T. L. Haig, sworn, said: I know
the defendant. By the instructions
of the directors of the R. P. & P.
Co. I discharged Mr. Northey by a
letter written by Mr. Holdich, the
secretary. Since then I told him
that the company wished him to
leave at once to arrange for another
editor. This he refused to do, and
I laid information of trespass tci
gain enforcement of the company's
wish. ���
By Mr. Lee: Mr. Northey's refusal was civil. Mr. Northey was
occupier of the room by day, by
night it was shut up.
By Mr. Fraser: The company
rents the office referred to. Owing
to the refusal of defendant to leave
the office the action for tresuasss
took place. In my opinion he was
hot then in the employ of the com-
1'iiny, :    .   >--.-.   ��� .; ..
Mr. Lee: But you have a doubt
on the subject.
Witness: Yes, I have a doubt on
the subject,
Mr. Fraser, in reading over the
notes of witness' statement,
omitted the hist answer. Ml*. Lee
drew his attention to the omission,
and again put the same question to
tlie witness, eliciting the same
answer. Mr. Fraser '-aid he was
not there to take down "di.ubts."
Mr. Lee claimed that the admission
was material evidence, and demanded that it s.lioiild be insetted.
Three times in reading over,his
notes of the evidence Mr. Fraser
omitted those won Is. Finally Mr.
Lee asked tin; witness to dictate to
him what he meant to say.
Witness: Mr. Northey, to the
best of my belief, was not ii. .the
employ of the company; but I have
a doUbt upon the sub'jeot.
Mr. Lee read this over to witness,
who said it was perfectly eonect. '
Mr. Fraser, on reading over hie
notes, again omitted the words
"but I have a doubt upon tlie subject."
Mr. Lee: ; With .the greatest respect for file bench, I must Day
that your honor is perverting the
evidence. <
Mr. FraBer:   Leavo the court.
Mr, Lee at once walked out, after
which the magistrate inserted the
Bentence which   had  been  omitte d
After further evidence from witness Mr. Northey asked him if he
[defendant] did not still own some
of the effectB in the office, to which
the witness replied "yes."
Mr. Northey [reading the notice
of discharge]: The secretary here
gives me ohe month's notice to
leave tne company's employ. How,
then can I be a trespasser one day
after the notice is served?
The magistrate then adjourned
the case for eight days.
