^ Robt. Irving,   secretary   of   the
Kaslo-Slocan R'y Co., is  heartily
" welcomed to Kootenay. He has
tipened the offices of the company
in what was formerly the post-

J. H. Gray, the new engineer of

Ibis morning and will immediately make a trip over the proposed line. He will then run the
final survey for the road, It is reported on good authority that

175 tons. Malcolm MacAskell is
the chief builder. He is assisted
by Capt. Buchanan, T. W. Gray
and several other carpenters. Geo.
Newman is the oakum expert.
Travel by rail and steamer is increasing, and in another month
every steamboat arriving in Kaslo
will be loaded with passengers.
Louie Lebert came here from 3
Porks two weeks ago today, built

Prof. Liddy is a close observer
and a logical reasoner, and it is to
these characteristics, rather than
any occult powers, that he owes
his reputation which is becoming
widespread. His interview published in the Spokane Times two
weeks ago was one of the best advertisements the Slocan country
has ever received.
Col. S. M. Wharton of Spokane
arrived in town Sunday morning
on his way to New Denver. We
feel sorry for the Col. We really
do. He Cannot get anything in
the Slocan that is any good. Of
course h6 owns a third interest in
the Reco, but what does that
amount to? Ii he could oniy get
a mine that has high grade ore he
would be all right. $9,200, to the
carload iB ft bagatelle. The Cliff
in Trail creek he thinks is a great
mine. It goes $200 to the carload,
less $250 for mining, shipping and
ti-eating; but then, it is in Trail
creek district and that makes all
the difference in the world. Col.
Wharton will erect a hotel in Rossland, and as he doesn't do things
by hdtveB it will be a magnificent
one modeled after one of the finest
hotels in Spbkane.
More Money for Lardeau.
Simultaneous with the rise in
silver, Messrs. Wagner & Kennedy
of this city received a telegram
from Spbkane stating that the.
money, had been deposited to their
credit to secure a bond on the Duncan and Lardo, two claims of the
Wagner, group. The amount of
the bond is $15,000 and the purchaser is Col. Peyton of the LeRoi
mine., 'The Wagner group is in
what is locally known as the high-
grade belt of the Lardeau, and is
reached by way of Nakiisp, Northeast" arm and Trout Lake.

A Death at Saudon.
Allen McPhee, a prospector
about 68 years of age, was taken
sick on the morning of the 2nd
inst. and died the same day. He
had neuralgia of the stomach,
which caused violent pains. When
not prospecting, Alien McPhee followed logging and [sawmill work.

Quite a little delegation of Spokane prospectors will start for the
Port Steele country about the middle of next montri. There would
be a great many more of them if
money were more plentiful, but
the merchants ofj that country
have a habit of charging about five
prices for supplies, and this has a
tendency to discourage the prospectors who don'f, have enough
cash on hand to l|uy a season's
grub in Spokane and pack it with
them into the hills*
Most of those wlift will go intend
to hunt for placer properties, although there is likaly to be more
activity in quarta jircspecting this
year. This is owing to hopeful
signs that the Canadian Pacific
will actually extend its Crow's Nest
PitsB line to the Kootenay river
this year, along the lines surveyed
last autumn.
"There are plenty of quart* properties along the Upper Kootenay,"
said an old proBpector today, "but
they have always been neglected
because there wan to way to ship

Whom Will They Marry?
It is very difficult to get at court
secrets in England, but there is
every reason for believing that a
difference exir-ts in regard to eligible partners for the two remaining
unmarried daughters of the heir-
anparent. Princesses victoria and
Maude are very desirous of remaining English women and of living
in England, and it is stated that
both young ladies would welccme
offers of marriage from English
noblemen of sufficient rank to approach their royal state and of suf-
ficieh income to support a spouse of
royal birth with becoming dignity.
Unfortunately there does not appear to be any strong desire on the
part of the unmarried members pf
the higher nobility to become connected with the royal family. Qf
course only a peer of the thiee
higher ranks, or the heir to such a
peerage, could possibly be acceptable, and there are not many such
gentlemen still unmarried in the
ranks of the aristocracy.
The Prince of Wales, it is believed, favored the proposals of the
Prince of Naples, but the Queen
would not hear 6f it, and Princess
Maude herself expressed the strongest objection to being a Convert to
the Papal faith, even to become a
Queen of first claes rank.���Cor. Examiner.

Great Activity in the Mines of tht  Slocan aud Tributary Districts.
Kaslo, Apr. 5, '95.
Having returned from Spokan-
I have been asked the question:
what are the propects for Slocan
for the year?
Well, I will base my remarks on
two things: 1. The present rise
in silver, which will be 70 cents
before the month expires. 2. The
R. R. from Kaslo to Sandon,
Well up till now, I thought like
a great many others: that is paper
talk. But now it's a go. The lack
of this road was one of the greatest
drawbacks we had and, coupled
with the fail of silver, kept the
camp from being one of the greatest silver-lead camps on earth, that
I know of, and I have been to
every silver and gold camp of any
note in the States and foreign
countries. But at the same time
there is very little scientific mining
down here yet. 1 mean by that,
getting depth���running probably
a thousand feet through formation
to be rewarded by large bodies of
ore. This isn't idle or imaginary
talk, as my remarks have conic
true notably on two mines, viz: the
Alamo and the Slocan Star; Several mining men told me the Alamo was no %06d and did not go
down. As Boon as I examined the
property I pronounced it a rich
mine by getting depth, comparing
with the famous Idaho; and at
present writing the Idaho aint got
nothing to boast over the Alamo.
Reference to the manager, Mr. Jno.
Vallance, will reecho my sentiments.
It is a great country and as good
a breaking ground as e'.^r I worked
in. Wages are $3.50 per day for
miners���not a cent too much for
good men. In some they pay
muckers or trammers $3 per diem.
For a new country, and considering transportation of provisions,
etc., accommodations for miners
are all that could be desired.
I understand Jim Hill is back
of the railroad project* from here
to Sandon, which to me is sufficient evidence that it will get
Of course I could go on enumerating the many fine properties

are again turning their attention
to silver investments.
If anything is done for silver the
Slocan country presents an unrivalled field for investment in
that line. It is almost an assured
fact that the Kaslo-Slocan railway
will be built during the present
year, and, with the Pilot Bay
smelter running, next to Trail
Creek, the Slocan has a brighter
��� future than any one of British
Columbia's many campn.

Acting CM. Oi
Kmau onm
To tho Eleutors of Yalo-Carlboo;
Gentlemen:���In response to the
widely expressed desire of representative men in various parts of
your' district, I have decided to
come forward as a candidate at the
forthcoming, elections, in opposition to the present government.
As this is such an enormous district I am, of course, personally
unknown to a large number of you;
but I may state that I have large
interests at and around Ducks and
Kamloops, and am very desirous
for your welfare and mine, to see
this province progress more than it
has done for the last few years.
I am opposed to the policy of
protection which has been pursued
for the last sixteen years, as being
unfitted to the requirements of the
country and benefitting the few at
the expense of the many.
I join in the condemnation of
the corrupt maimer in which the
administration of the affairs of
this country has been carried on
during the time that the present
party has been in office.
I consider:���
1. That a customs tariff, if imposed nt
all, should only be for the purpose of raising a
revenue, not for the purpose of protection.
2. That free trade relations with Great
Britain and the United Slates would immcdi
ately benefit this country.
3. That ��� under existing circumstances
and the peculiar nature of the country mining
machinery should be allowed to come in free of
4. That the natural resources of the
country should be the first to be developed.
5. That iu order to accomplish this end
the country should bo opened up, the rivers
made navigable, and increased facilities for
communication and transportation afforded.
6. That the mail and other contracts le
by the government should be put up in public
7. That the strictest economy should bo
observed in the admiuistratson of tho public
service, and all unnecessary expenditure
should be stopped.
8. That all complaints in regard to the
disposal of government lands and issuing of
titles should be inquired into and any grievances redressed, and the surveys in the railway
belt completed as soon as possible.
As this district comprises so
large an extent of country it will
be impossible for me to visit every
polling division and become ac
qu tinted with the electors, but I
shall make a point of visiting as
many as possible and holding
meetings for the purpose of placing
my views on public matters before
you, and learning from you the
local requirements of each  district
I have no objects of my own to
serve by asking you to support me,
but I have time that I can give to
promote the interests of this district, the province and the Domin
ion, and I shall devote it to that
For these reasons I ask your
support at the approaching Dominion elections, and trust you will
see fit to give it to me.
Yours  faitlfully,
Hewitt Boseock.

Kootenay Land Company. IDLER'S VIEW OF DOMINION   POI.I-
���   TICS.
The Dominion is apparently
about to make some history. The
Manitoba school difficulty has
reached an acute stage.
By an order in council dated
March 21st, 1895, the Dominion
government practically command
the government of Manitoba to restore to the Roman Catholics the
fight to maintain and control
schools such as meet the approval
of their clergy, such schools to receive their full share of public
The Manitoba legislature having
received the mandate had adjourned without taking action.
They propose to await the result of
the consideration of the question
by the parliament of Canada,
which is called to meet on April
This body has power to grant
the remedial legislation if the provincial government neglects to do
so; and the Catholic leaders seem
to be urging the Government to
finish the job they have so well begun, hy the passage of an act
through the present parliament.
This step once taken would be.
irrevokable, as such an act would
become a part of the constitution
and could never be repealed.
The Ministers who have Protestant constituencies to face have
yielded 8��. *ar to a clamorous
minority to avoid an immediate
rupture of the party, but with the
understanding that parliament
would be dissolved and the people
consulted before the final settlement of the question. Now that
the Premier has announced a session and not a dissolution, several
pf his warriors are sulking in their
tents. The latest rumour is to the
effect that the Premier will a^gree to
take no action during this session
upon the question,
Mr. Laurier is ill and has cancelled all speaking engagements.
The ties of church and race will
probably impel him in this case to
support the action of the Govern'
raent, and thereby jeoperdise the
unity of his own party.
The star of Dalton McCarthy is
in the ascendent. He is. an advocate of Tariff Reform, as ardent and
as able as Mr. Laurier, and he has
been an eloquent champion of the
Tights of Manitoba. He is now in
a position to mount the Protestant
horse and ride to victory,
It is needless to remark that
nothing has been heard from the
representatives of B. C. at this
crisis. They have simply waited
for orders. They have expressed
no opinion as to whether the Government should or should not interfere with Manitoba, or as to
whether there should be a session
or a dissolution.
Some day we may regret the attitude of selfish isolation in which
our province has been kept.
Ministers visited Kaslo and spent
an hour in the city.
The Hon. J. C. Patterson met
the Board of Trade and listened to
their representation of hardship in
customs matters and promised relief as soon as he could reach a
telegraph office���a promise which
Was well redeemed.

Mr. Bostock has passed through
the district and has taken pains
to meet as many as possible of the
people. To the Liberal association
nt Kaslo he expressed his willingness to abide the decision of any
representative convention of the
Liberal party of the district, as regards his candidacy. He is a man
of 30, educated as a barrister,
modest, unassuming, and in financial circumstances that put him
above the necessity of going into
politics for pickings.
If the district had been divided
into "precincts" with an arrangement of "primaries" and "proxies,"
a la Arizona, and such a candidate
had been the outcome, he would
