Had a Splendid Time.
For many days the people of
Kaslo and Ainsworth had not had
such an opportunity for pleasant
recreation as was afforded last
Sunday by the excursion ort the
Steamer Alberta; The objective
point was Canada's only real live
smelter���that at Pilot Bay.
On the waw down a half-hour
call was made at the wonderful
Blue Bell mine. The principal
work oh it is being done on the
side of the hill back from the lake.
The men work in the open air and,
as the body of ore is so large, it
has more semblance to a rock
quarry than to the Slocan mines.
A tunnel runs through the hill
and a tramway in it carries the ore
from the stoping ground to the
landing where it is loaded on
barges. Some underground development work is being done. The
company is receiving machinery
for air-compresBor and and power
drills, which will be in operation
in a few weeks.
At Pilot Bay a stop of two hours
Was made, giving ample time to
look at tlie concentrator, the smelter, admire the land-locked harbor, and visit any friend or pjaces
of particular interest to the individual���and then gather a big
boquet of the beautiful wild flowers which are so plentiful on the
hillsides there; And there were
very few on the boat who did not
secure a boquet.
The sulphur fumes from the
roasting furnaces at the smelter
and the great heat and dense black
smoke of the melting furnace call
Up a recollection of���well, of what
John Burns said about Chicago.
The day was very suitable���
warm, with a gentle breeze blowing. A better day could not have
been; While it may be a little too
much to credit Agent D.W, Moore
with having the day made to order,
much credit is certainly due him
for the success of the event, both
as to its inception and promotion,
and the management of the excursion en route. The courteous treatment accorded everyone by the
officers of the iteamer won them
an enviable position in the esteem
of all the excursionists.
A few over a hundred persons
took advantage of the excursion.
The three or four drunk men
aboard were restrained from causing any considerable annoyance���
and noiie of them went from Kaslo.
All iii till, it Was a grand success;
and thg people will look forward
with pleasant anticipation to the
next one.
THE   KASLO AND SLOGAN  RAILWAY
co, Exemption by-lAw.
By request of the Prospector a
rrentleman who has been several
years a resident of Kaslo and is
acquainted with the matters referred to in the exemption by-law
has prepared the following statement relative thereto:
"A by-law has been introduced
into the Municipal Council for the
exemption of the property of the
Kaslo & Slocan R'y\ Cd . from
municipal taxation for t\ period of
ten yearS from 1st January 1894.
"Prior to the erection of Kaslo
City into into a municipality the
railway company had procured the
passage of an act by the Legislature of the Provinie of British
Columbia entituled/ "The Kaslo
and Slocan Railway Co. Subsidy
Act," by which it ; was provided
that the property of the company
shou'd be exempt from provincial
taxation for a period of ten years;
When the inhabitants of Kaslo
City were seeking incorporation
they found that it was imperative
lo obtain the consent of the Kaslo-
Kootenay Lilnd Co. to such incorporation, that company holding
sufficient land to defeat such a
measure. The stock-holders and
directors of the Land Co. being the
stock-holders and directors of the
Railway Co. on being approached
to sign the petition for the incorporation of Kaslo City at once objected on the ground that the lands
of the railway company were exempt from provincial taxation and
if Kaslo City were erected into a
a city municipality the company's
property would be subject to municipal taxation. Negotiations were
then entered into between the land
company and the promoters of
Kaslo City incorporation, and as a
result a resolution was passed at a
public meeting held in Kaslo
which provided that should the
Kaslo-Kootenay Land Co. sign the
petition for'incorporation of Kaslo
City the property of the railway
company should be exempt from
municipal taxation for a period of
ten years.   I
"The writer considers that under
these circumstances such a by-law
ought to receive the hearty support
of the people of Kaslo, and particularly so as the railway company
has asked fpr no other assistance
from the municipality."

Wedding.
Gething-Burnstead. A quiet
wedding occurred yesterday at
Pilot Bay, the Rev. C. A. Procunier
officiating. The eontracting parties' were Miss Lillian E.-Burn-
stead, ah estimable young lady
from Nelson, and Mr. Cornelius M.
Gething, of the Hotel Slocan, New
Denver, one of the best known,
most popular and most successful

THE CP.lt. AND LAKE POINTS.
LOST I !
i 10 KEWARQ.
On June 7th, between the Teh- ahd
Seventeen-mile house, a black)
leather pocket book Containing
money and papers. The above reward will be paid by returning
said pocket book with contents to
McPhee & Roadley, Hot��l Slocan,
Kaslo, B. C: F: H. Prior.
The discrimination which the C.
P.R. has never lost an opportunity
to practise against Kaslo and
Kootenay Lake points, and which
has naturally resulted in throwing
both passenger and freight traffic
into the hands of competing lines,
is again being evidenced by the
opposition which the C. P. R.
officials are making to the serving
of lake points by  the Str. Alberta.
Only at length and reluctantly
have instructions been given to the
agent at Nelson to recognize this
steamer at all, in spite of the fact
that she is the only boat giving
daily and regular communication
all around the lake. And with regard to the passenger connection
between the C.P.R. main line and
lake points, no effort is spared by
the officials of the line to discourage that close cohnection at Nelson
which is afforded by the Alberta
lying alongside the C.P.R. wharf
to await the arrival of the train
from Robson. The shortsightedness and impolicy of such a line of
action renders it almost incredible
and naturally provokes inquiry as
to the motive.
We should think it would be the
first object of tlie C.P.R. people to
encourage such a connection, to
advertise it outside, to instruct
their agents at Nelson and Robson
to notify all passengers of it, and
especially to see that the conductor
ol the C. & K. train should bring
it before passengers, In this way
time, expense and labor would be
paved to through passengers and
the weariness of the present journey from the main line to Kootenay lake points much curtailed.
Probably if the superior officials
of the C.P.R. could bk induced to
give a little attention to this remote and uninteresting district,
such abuses as this might be remedied; hut while they exist they
constitute flagrant grievances and
speak volumes of the apathy of
the great Canadian line toward the
one mineral producing district of
British Columbia.

THS s PROSFECTOE
BY  W.   D.   PRATT.
I'OB A CONCENTRATOR.
Now that the building of the
railroad has got past the initial
?>tage and has become a live reality,
citizens are naturally beginning to
risk themselves:    What next?
No one who knows the people of
'Casio, who is acquainted with
;heir energy and perseverance,
doubts for a moment but that
they will inaugurate and carry to
(i successful conclusion other' enterprises that will be a great benefit to the city and will place it
where it rightfully belongs���at the
head of the list of the interior cities
of the province.
It has been thought by some
that, while each of the larger
mines will have its own concentrator, there should be a large custom mill erected at a suitable'plaoe
for the use and benefit of the holders of smaller mining properties,
and that, with the railway in operation to bring down the ores
cheaply, the best place for such a
concentrator would be at or near
this end of the Hue. It should, of
course, be at a point above the divergence of t}ie railway from the
creek, as the water power furnished
by the creek is a factor not to be
overlooked. In connection with
the concentrator there should be a
Large sampler, and so managed as
to have the confidence of both buyers and sellers of ore,
It is believed that the railroad
company would give substantial
encouragement to an enterprise oi
this kind, and its further consideration by our citizens is a matter of
importance.

Mrs. A. J. Becker, The ladies of Kaslo have a duty
to perform. During the past
"'month several families have movpd
'into Kaslo and others will follow
this month. They are respectable
people in moderate circumstances
(���The ladies of Kaslo should call
upon these new families, welcome
them, and make them to feel that
they have located among generous
;md sociable people. Many a woman has, because of neglect during the first few weeks of her residence in a new place,; taken an
aversion to it that has lasted with
her for years.
lioyH, Go Home.
Ah, boys! you who have gone
out from the homestead into the
rush and bustle of life, do you ever
think of the patient mothers who
are stretching out to you arms that
are powerless to draw yon back to
your old home nest?
No matter though your liair is
silver-streaked, and Dot in the
cradle calls you grandpa, you are
"the boys" 60 long as the mother
lives. You may have failed in
(he battle of life, and your manhood may have been crushed but
against the walls of-circumstances;
you may have been prosperous,
gained wealth and fame, but mother's love has followed you always.
Many a "boy" has not been home
for five or fen or twenty years,
and all this time mother has been
waiting. She may be even now
saying, "I dreamed <>f my boy last
night. Maybe he will come today,
he may drop in for dinner." Anil
the poor trembling hands prepare
some favorite dish for him. Dinner comes and goes, but John
comes not with it. Thus day after day, month after month, year
after year passes, till at last ''hope
deferred ninketh the heart sick,"
aye, sick unto death; the arms are
stretched out no longer.
The dim eyes are closed, the gray
hairs smoothed over for the last
time, and the tired hands are
folded to everlasting rest, and the
mother waits no more on earth for
one who comes not, God grant
that she may not in vain wait his
coming in the heavenly home.
Once more I say unto you, boys,
go home, if only for a day. Let
mother know you have not forgotten her. Her days may be numbered. Next winter may cover her
grave with snow.��� Selected.
lion Nelson Bennett of Tacoma
tells a good story. 'At'! political
convention held in Washington
last summer, a rabid goldite in an
impassioned speech denounced the
silver craze as against :all sense
and all reason, as an effort to
establish the impossible, and declared that gold was the only
scientific, money, and that he
would 1 i!���:e to see tjie color of aliy
man's hair who, jn that conven-.
tion, would favor the free coinage
of silver, whereupon a loiig, gaunt,
original Pike county man rose Ui
his feet, Among his other accomplishments he possessed'a bushy
head of fiery red hair, and he
exultantly culled the attention of
the last gentleman, who had addressed the convention,'to the color
of that hairof his ag one who did
favor the free coinage of silver at
1G to 1, giving as his reasons that
When 'that was lhe rule it Worked
to' the satisfaction of everyone.
Furthermore, because God Almighty had' placed gold and silver
in the hills at that ratio, ai d he
closed with this most rernarkablr!
declaration: "'And God Almighty
is a "good deal of a scientist himself." ������'������'���

Admiral Meade of the Yankee
navy, an old and trusted officer,
has resigned from his position because the government is bo much
at variance with his ideas of how
things should bo run. Admiral
Meade gave a last parting shot at
the administration and said: "lam
a Republican, and a man who lives
on the ocean is apt' to imbibe
patriotism arid loyalty. I find
these articles at a discount with
the present regime. I want to be
untrammelediso that I can think
