"���"��� ;.���������    .   l.OCAX  MATTKKS;  Ho lirst dealt/ with' local matters referring tn the fact that when minister  of mines, local requests that, were  with iii the" power of the government  had been promptly granted, sucli as  removal to Greenwood of the office of  Ihe mining recorder;and of the county  court, also r,the .establishment o.f a  ^.supreiiie^coiir^office^and ,the^appoint-  menf of a gold commissioner; * He had  strongly, urged .the. holding of assi'/e in  the district which was finally conceded.  With regard to school accommodation  lie had got1 on; the iloor of tl'e house in  1901 a pledge from the Hon. .Mr. Prentice that the interior cities should be  treated as we'll;as the older cities of the  coast had been. This had been carried out at Rossland where the school  buildings aiid sites had been "entirely  paid for by the government at a cost of  ���S.W.000, but he has not yet been able to  get.the pledge fully earried out in the  cases of Greenwood and Grand Forks*'  but.would continue to urge the cause,  nf these cities until th$t pledge was  made good, He ha'd got all the'roads  and trails asked for in the vicinity of  ��� Ireeuwood except a road to accommodate settlers northeast, of Midway  which road he hoped to get built iu the  spring. Another road of great importance lo Creeiiwood but which was  within the riding of-West Yale���that  i.s the West Fork road, he had worked  untiringly for. and last session, as Mr.  Duncan Ross knew, he had got the  promise of Hon.' : Mr. Wells' that it  would be .built this yean There was  an-estimate f6rr'it. While sorry for  the delay which was a sample of the  apathy of the government towards the  mining districts, he was satisfied the  road would be built-in'-"the spring.  He had pressed for an appropriation  of'510,000 for the court house hoping  that another estimate would be put  through next year so that a proper  building would be erected but the  government were putting up a cheap  structure that would have to be replaced in a few years���a penny-wise  pound-foolish policy. Rossland with  an ore out put of 325,000 tons a year  worth $4,000,000 or so was given a  $45,000 court house, the Boundary had  an out pur of 500,000 tons worth $3,000,-  000 which would wiihin three years be  trebled and quardrupled and should be  given a court house to correspond! with  ;its importance! ^i The local ^requirements pf G-reenwQod;-;would so long as  he was' iu the house; have his! best  attention.

The government  refused these" proposals. He, had fafa&<  little support in his opposition to this  law /that1 bore so heavily, ou low grade  properties, but the government : it is  said is now going to concede what it  '���haa'-^TO>*loiig"refuseUV'''*~'Persiiiidally''��h'e;,  favored a tax on the profits distributed'  only.

The '"legislature''-was "'discredited.  Why ? - And- what- was the 'remedy ?

Then the Coast-  Kootenay Railway matter made it  patent the government was sold to the  C.1 P. R. and along with it to my surprise aiid sorrow my 'leader Joseph  Martin'./  " UUHKLNG    KAH.WAYS.  Mr. Curtis here went into detail and  showed how-jttae aid proposed, forV this  road was -given' in such' a.way as to  prevent Jim Hill's line, thieY-'J-Y". & EJ.  from getting it/ Some of thie provisions -were good and in. line with the  Martin government platform, ��� snchaB  .the;aidSvav!it) be Recnr(ed; Vy.nior.tgage  bonds bearing interest���Martin -lauded  the bill and ;-weiit over to the govern���,  ment. declaring the C. P. R. should  build the line, denouncing competition  in railways, the fighting for which in  Manitoba had made his'.. political fortunes. Mr. Curtis proposed the government ownership of the railway, the  big plank of the Martin platform.  Martin promptly voted against it and  along with Dunsmtiir played the C. P.  R, game which was to build no railway  at all and they succeeded. On the competition vote,.had the Martinites stay  ed with their principles "and opposed  the government it would have l>eeu defeated.' A' government' could have  then been formed to pass a redistribution act and go; to the country.  :���     ��� MA'H'i'IN'S :HRRi-'inV.-'V:.'���'���  Mr. Curtis pointed out how on vote  after vote, same to secure wages to  labor, Martin voted straight' against  his professions or,else .sneaked.,out into  the corridors 'and shirked, the vote,  showing a- shameless ^abandonment of  his principles. Mr. [Curtis; took up  Mar tin's; attitude on the land grant to  the Columbia and Western railway.  How he had,in 1900 voted, against the  C. P. R. getting any land at all, how  he at the end of the session of 1901  tried to assist the C. P. R. in slipping  through a bill to give; them not only  the land earned'under their act but  nearly a million acres more, ho sv later  he denied ever hearing of the bill  though that could be proved and i then  stated his attitude was as it had been,  yet at .New Westminister claimed he  had always favored the C. P. R. getting-the. land earned���a statement  which \yas prpveii,:to,>,be false .by the  declaration of the; reporter who took  .down.; his ..words'.as well as by his recorded :.votes in the liouse which proved his word was absolutely worthless.  Most astounding of all  last session he  DBNaROmiNEB, LTD;FORMED  Smith Curtis and A MdftJish Haye, Secured An Option on King Company Stock���Circular  Issued by King Company  The King Mining company, Limited  has issued the following circularl'to  the shareholders :     .,..,,..  "The directors: "of - 'the The'King  Mining company, Limited, have for  the past two years endeavored either  to dispose of the mining properties of  the company or to get capital to pay  off the liabilities and to continue development work but on account" of the  unsatisfactory mining conditions prevailing in the province ; also the sudden 'decline in the price of copper a  year ago and not the want of. merit in  the company's holdings,-the many  negotiations that have been carried on  have not heretofore resulted in any  proposals the directors agreed to being successfully caiiried through by  their- proposers. ? At the- recent extra:  ordinary general meetings liel.l on the  4th and 19th instant two- proposal*  were considered one rv being by a  smelting and mining company which  asked an option on 45 percent, of the  company's assets in return for $90,000  to be paid out of the value of the ore  mined: by such-company from :the Oro  Denoro:claimeduring foui:j years;���in;  other words the interest to-be acquired  was intended to he paid out of the  mine profits. The usual commission of  10 per cent, was also to be paid by the  King Company on this $90,000.  The other proposition was by Messrs.  Smi'h Curtis and Angus MacNish  whose offer is embodied in the agreement with thetn herein after referred to.  The shareholders present representing  over two-thirds of sliares in the company unanimously approved of the  proposal of Messrs. Curtisand MacNish  and it has been accepted.  The agreement provides for the transfer of all King Company assets to a  new company the "'Denoro Mines, Limited," non-personal liability, with a capital stock of 51,500,000 in 1,500,000  shares of SI each, th* new cempany as  suring all obligations and liabilities of  tlie King Company. Rach King shareholder receives one share in the new  company (subject to pool foi" twelve  months with the right to the directors  to extend it for an additional period  not'sxeeeding six months) for every  two shares he holds in the King Company. Messrs. Curtis and MacNish  have the right to acquire the balance  of the shares in the new company for  $45,000 (less a commission payable to  them often per cent.) payable in bimonthly installments extending over  two years but any.King shareholder  has the right to buy: from Messrs.  Curtis and MacNish a portion of these  shares not exceeding one new share for  every three King shares he now holds  at 8 cents share by sending the'price  thereof and his application for th*  same to the Batik of Montreal, Rossland, B. C, on or before the 10th January-, 1903, if he resides in Cauada or  II. S. A., and on or before the 1st February, 1903, if he resides ia any other  country, i. Shares acquired in this way  will-be subject to pool. Form of application is herewith inclosed.  : Copper mining is'now especially  bright in the Boundary DUtrict in  which the Oro Denoro claim is situate.  Although railway and smelter facilities have been afforded only a little over  threetyears, theoremined (mostly quarried) this year will exceed 500,000 tons-  while the smelter capacity of the district is promised to be increased to  0,000 tons per day during 1903 enabling  2,000,000 tons of ore per year to be  handled.  As soon as the  snow i.s gone  iu the  spring       ,     it is intend  ed to mine ore (by quarrying as well as  tunneling) on the Oro Denoro and it is  believed that the proceeds of sale* together with the money payable under  the agreement will be sufficient to demonstrate that   the  laTge ore  bodies  shown on the surface ami the upper  workings of the Oro Denoro have the  necessary depth to make a valuable  mine.  Development work in the underground workings will likely be begun  in January 1903, and it i.s confidently  believed that a few mouths will see a  marked rise in the price of Oro Denoro  shares." ������������������  Mark Twain's First Money.  While traveling recently, according  to the New .York Times, Mark Twain  was asked by a friend aud fellow- passenger if he remembered the first money  he had ever earned.  ','Yes." answered Mr. Clemens, puffing meditatively on his cigar, "I have  a distinct recollection of it. When I  was a youngster I attended school al a  place where the use of the birch rod  was not an unusual event. It was  against the rules lo mark the desks in  any manner, the penalty being a fine of  $S or publitl chastisement.  "Happening to violate the rule on  one occasion I was offered the alternative.

The following story is condensed  from the German editition of Paul  Kruger's memoirs :  Kruger was only fourteen years old  when hi. shot his first lion. He accom ���  panied his father, biothtr, and uncle  on a hunt, for a lion that had been  injuring their Hocks. They soon sight  ed the lion, but at the same instant the  lion sighted them and charged. They  dismounted and separated, leaving the  boy with the horses.  "T crouched behind the horses,"*  ���_Kriik?r says, J_|with iii.Y^ gun aimed at  the approaching lion. As he came  near, he crouched with the intention,  as it seemed to me, of springing over  the horses upon nie. As be sprang. I  fired and luckily shot him dead. He  fell almost on top of me."  Mr. Kruger's companions and three  others who had formed a separate hunting parly came up. The lion was a  large one and his teeth were so big that  one of the hunters knelt le measure  him.  "In examining the animal," says  Kruger, "I thoughtlessly put my foot  on its belly, whereupon it uttered a loud  rojr which sent Hugo over his back  in terror, The others laughed, for  every hunter knows that a dead lion  will roar once if stepped ou. The roar  is caused hy the expulsion of the air in  the luii^s. Hugo knew this, but he  had been too much seared to remember  it. He mis very'much ashamed and  very aiiK'ry."  Hugo, indeed was on the point of  thrashing the future president, but was  prevented by the others.  Ahh SENSIBLE PEOPLE TRAVEL }  BY THE C. P. R. , -  PEED  AFETY  ATISFACT10N.

GHEENWOOD BRANCH :   Copper Street.  ooooooooooooooooooooooooooaoooooooooooooooooooooooooo  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO* OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  If Ihe announcement made by the  Spokesman-Review regarding the intention of the C. P. K. be correct,  Ihi'H railways as well us polities make strange bedfellows. It  is only four years ago since Sir  William Van Home and his then  trusty lieutenant, endeavored to convince a patriotic parliament that it  would be a most dangerous thing for  Cnna:1aif a shrewd American like D.  C. Corbin was allowed to build a railway into British Columbia and haul  awny its mineral wealth. In a most dramatic way Sir William Van Home told  the railway committee of the House of  Commons that he had no hesitation in  saying that if Corbin built liis railway into the mining district of British Columbia this country should be  plundered to the tune of at least  10,000,0(10 dollars a year, The C. P. R.  oilieials convinced the ignorant and in-  dilTercnl members of the east that  wbile railways from the Unitccl^ States  were all right in Ontario and Quebec  and the Maritime Provinces they were  all wrong iu British Columbia���unless  built by the C. P. R. Mr. Corbin got  tired of trying lo force a. railway on  the intelligent legislators of this country without, a .subsidy or laud grant  and sold out his syslein to the Great  Northern.  The Canadian Pacilic railway lost a  golden opportunity to absolutely control the Kootenay and Boundary trade.  II-ul   the company   purchased the  Cor  bin system not a pound of merchandise could have come into or'gonc out  of the interior without paying tribute  to the C.P.R. The Coi'bin system was  the avenue through wfiich all American trans-continental lines secutred  business in the mining- districts. -. Had  the C. P. R. purchased the roa<l the  Canadian company wonlcMiave absolute  control of the mining traffic. In adldition  it would have secured a natural route into the Boundary and have saved the cost  of building over several mountain  ranges. The. C. P. R. was either without the money or did not appreciate the  importance of securing the Corbin  system, They fully realize it now and  it would not be surprising if the company decided to get into Spokane.  The old flag will be no longer waved  and It will be now a good thing to  secure connection with the American  railways. D. C. Corbin is no longer  a masked robber who- is going to steal  the gold and copper out of the hills.  He is an astute railway man. A man  who did a great work for this province  b3r building railways into it when no  one else had sufficient confidence in its  resources to invest capital in railways  or other enterprises. We hope the report is true. We can't have too many  railways, it was an absurd mistake to  prevent Mr. Corbin from investing his  money in this province when he wished  to do so and if he still feels that he  should do so but under the sheltering,  wing of the. C. P. R, he should still receive every encouragement.  WHEN-OUGHT  WE TO  GOTO A. DENTIST?  Many think it unnecessary  to devote particular attention to the teeth until the  appearance of the mouth is  affected by damaged, decayed or broken teeth. Others  give the teeth no attention  till pain compels them.  -' The stupidity aud shortsightedness of either policy is  evident.

The  church was appropriately and tastefully  decorated, the Xmas Iree well supplied  with books, candies, etc. from the  scliO'.l. Each ��� in ember of the school  receiving1 a carefully selected book.  The tree was well patronized also by  parents and others who took advantage  of it to remember their friends.  At tin; close of the entertainment  Mrs. Pope and Mrs. Haas came forward to lite platform and on behalf of  the members and adherent of the Methodist church presented their pastor  with a silk hay containing the handsome sum of $.15,00 and '���end the following address,  Rev.

' We recognize that your worlc here  has not been easy that you have not  had the same facilities for carrying it  on as exist in many places but in spite  of this you have labored quietly, uncomplainingly and a1 the same time  zealously and persistently from the  time you came amongst us up to the  present.  While we, as a congregation, may  not have been particularly demonstrative during your stay here, we appreciated none the less your kindness, your  unfailing courtesy, the work you were  doing and the sacrifiice you were making on our behalf.  As the days passed by you gained  not only our appreciation and our entire  respect but our sincere affection and  svhile w��?  understand there  is a   possi  bility of your leaving us in the near  future we trust that may not come to  pass, as we regret exceedingly a severance of the ties that have become so  close and i ritiinate and of relations  that to us are so pleasant and so satisfactory.  In conclusion we wish you the compliments of this festive season, that  you may be blessed with health and  happiness andthat your Master niay  crown your labors with abundant, success, and we ask you to accept this  small sum of money as a Christmas  gift from the congregation you have  ministered to faithfully and well.

To Connect Spolcane With The C. P.  R.���Railway Notes  t''or several days reports have been  current on the streets that the Canadian Pacilic railway will extend its line  to 'Spokane during'��� Uie coming- year.  ������From sources which admit of no question. The Spokesman-Review learned  J;is't nitfiil thai Senator George Turner  and I). C. Corbin have made arrangements for (lie construction of a road  from here to the Canadian boundary  line in northern Idaho, where it will  join ihe Crow's Nest Pass system of  (Ik? Canadian Pacific railway.  Iiilerchts friendly to the Canadian  Pacilic will .furnish all funds with  which to build the 201.1 miles of road. It  is said by promoters that the chief aim  ' in the construction of the new line is  to furnish terminal rates  for Spokane.  I). C. Corbin will probably be the  president and Senator Turner will be  chief counsel, at a salary, it is unofficially reported, of $20,000 a year. Mr.  Corbin has gone lo New York on business in connection with the road.  Senator Turner is now on the Sound,  lie i.s expected back today.  In addition to these, there will probably be niiother Spokane man on the  ('ireclorate, and two men'''from Pugct  suiuid, whose names are not yet made  public.  Tin; Canadian Pacilic lias had a  jealous eyooii Ihe trade of Spokane for  years. It has wanted to get into this  lield, not only to haul in freight from  the i.'.'isl; but ;:lso lo get some of Ihe  wheat business of Ihe Palou.se anil the  ure trallic of the mines. It was restrained from entering this lield, however, until now il has a light on its  hands with James J. Hill of the Northern Securities company, who announc  ed to a. Spokesman-Review reporter  yesterday that he will push His line  from Curlew. Wash.,' on iii tip the very  heart of the Similkameen. country, in  British Col'iuibia, on. his way.to the  coast, withiai a year. His entrance in  the British' Columbia field with the  charter of the Vancouver, Victoria &  Eastern road, has been fiercely l-esent-  ed by the Canadian . Pacific, which has  considered that province its own particular preserve. ' The invasion of  British Columbia by the Hill road has  stirred things up to the point where  the Canadian Pacilic is now.residy't'o  build into Spokane to reach" iitVter the  magnificent Held around here. It is  believed that nothing short of a settlement of the serious difficulties between  Hill and the Canadian Pacific will stop  the building of the road.  The name of the new company to be  incorporated by Senator Turner and  Mr. Corbin will be the. Spokane & Kootenay road, although tliat may be  changed. According to the plans it  will run from Spokane over to L,ake  Pend d'Oreille, touching Sandpoint,  and will then extend North through  the Idaho penhandle, probably along  the Kooteny river, to the Canadian line  where it will join a brancn of the Canadian Pacific. The distance.ia estimated at about 200 mites.  A crew of men, it is planned, will  start the first thing in the spring, and  the road may be completed in a year,  as operations can he pushed from three  or four points at once.  J list before his departure for Pew  York-, Mr. Corbin was asked as to the  truth of the reports that he was interested in the road. "I have nothing: to  say on the subject," was his only ans  wet. Senator likewise refused to discuss the matter. Yesterday, however,  from sources which could not tje disputed, The Spokesman-Review learned  the facts of the case.  Articles of incorporation of the  Spokane & Kootenai Railway company, which is to connect Spokane  with'the Canadian Pacilic system,  were filed yesterday in the oflice of  County Auditor Hubbard. The incorporators are D. C, Corbin and Senator  George Turner of Spokane; Jacob  Furth, president of the Paget Sound  National bank of Seattle and Charles  S. Bihler of Tacoma, formerly assistant chief engineer of the Northern  Pacific railroad. The capital stock i.s  placed al 33,000,000, divided into shares  of S100 each.  The articles of incorporation declare  the purpose of the company "to locate,  construct, own', use, maintain, operate  an-l en joy a standard gauge railway,  with -;ingle or double tracks, as the  Cui p.-ration may determine, beginning  at a point in , >r near Ihe city of Spokane, stale of Washington, ami extending in n general northeasterly and  northerly direction, via Pend d'Oreille  river and lake, the Kootenai river and  tributaries, to a point in Kootenai  couutary, Idaho, on the international  boundary between the United States of  America and the Dominion of Canada  a distance of 200 miles, more of less,  all in Spokane county' state of Washington, and Kootenai country, state of  Idaho, for the transportation of passengers, freight, etc.  J. J. Hill who visited the const last  week, while in Spokane, announced  the intention of his company to prosecute the work of extending the V.
