C. Gamble  in particular,  and governments present and  past.   The writer was induced by Jas.  Kerr,     railway    promoter,     townsite  owner   and  mining magnate, to. visit  the West Fork and; study the potent-  alities of that coming district.   Having  but a hazy idea.of the imperfections  of the much discussed  West Fork road  and being, anxious to se�� the country,  Kerr's  eloquent   descriptions   of   the  glories of: the trip took and we went.  There was some satisfaction in having  companions in affliction In' the persons  of  Dune    7 Mcintosh  Eirid.Ttios. McDonnell. "���'  Notwithstanding the conditions of  the road, the trip was well worth the  making. Erven the most cursory examination convinces one that near  Greenwood and tributary thereto is a  district rich'in natural resources. Its  wealth is not confined to miiunl.  There are long stretches of timber . s  perfect as any that can be found anywhere in the province.Tall stately pin -,  fir, tamarack and beeches, curvelijss  and knotless, grow in abundance  on both sides of the West Fork. Then  there are miles of rich sandy loam that  will produce enough to supply the  mines and maintain a large agricultural population in the valley of the  West Fork. Its mineral wealth has  yetto he demonstrated_-but__in__ti_nber_  and in the richness and extent of its  arable land the West Fork leads Boundary. The development of the Carmi,  the wonderful showing on adjoining  claims ar.d those up from Beaver Creek  and the richness of the ore, all point  to an important mining district. Taking everything into consideration, the  West Fork is well worth watching.  From a provincial standpoint the government would make no mistake in  taking chances. In the building of a  wagon road, in the grants of assistance to a railway, the district will  prove false to every indication unless  it returns twenty-fold every dollar  that may be-given in assisting its development.

Lack pf .time and a depth of snow on  the mountains prevented an examination of more than a few of the mining  properties, on the West Fork, but  enough were seen to prove that if there  were none other than the properties  seen, the district would not be an unimportant .one.'. The best developed  mine in. the district is the Carmi,  situated on the West Fork, and about  four miles' risHT^of Beaver creek. It  was located by Jas. Dale in May, 1896,  and like many another rich property it  was discovered by chance. Dale was  at that time prospecting in West Fork  country and camped one night on  Beaver creek. Early next morning he  struck for the hills and'travelled nearly  all day. A thick fog came up with the  result that he lost his bearings and  night coming on decided to camp  where he was. Next morning broke  clear and Dale made for the river.  Just as he was about to descend the  bank he discovered an outcropping.  After getting to his camp and something to eat, he returned and staked  the claim, calling it the Carmi. The  surrounding country is covered by a  heavy wash, so that a prospecttor  might-have travelled^-for--years in-that  locality and not have seen any indication of ore.  Development work on the Carmi has  demonstrated   that   the  property is a  rich one.   In May, 1899, it was bpnded  by    Mr.     Lennie,   representing   the  Bunker    Hill    and    Sullivan-- people.  They transferred the bond to Mr. Sonneman of Spokane, who in turn sold to  E.   H.   Thruston,  the present owner.  Development t work comprises 100-foot  tunnel on the vein, a 60-foot shaft and  drifting at the   discovery   post.   The  vein was traced by open cuts a distance  of  1,300 feet to the west end of the  claim.    Here a  shaft was sunk'53 feet  and another 110 feet deep.   At the bottom of this shaft is 117 feet of drifting.  Betweeu thc 65-foot   level and the surface   1,100   tons of rich ore has been  stoped   out   and   hauled   to   Midway,  thence   by  railway   to the Greenwood  smelter.    The ore  was'hauled over a  sleigh road built by the owners of the  Carmi  to connect with the unfinished  West Fork wagon road.    Several hundred   tons   of   this ore  are   scattered  along the wagon road and are now being taken to Midway in wagons.   The  contractor   for hauling  the  ore   is J.  Munson   and   the cost., to Midway   is  311.50 per  ton. 'Notwithstanding  this  high cost of   transportation,  the   ore  yields a large profit as it runs from S45  to SoS to the ton, the values being in  gold and silver, there being generally  one  ounce   of   silver   to five in gold.  The   vein  is  as near a true fissure as  can   be   found;   It runs from 4_4 to 7  feet  in width and the ore between the  walls   is   without a waste.   The same  veiu   has' been   traced ou t__J Biittxisr  Boy, an   adjoining property owned by  las. Kerr and James Dale, the original  owners..of "t~he Carmi.   Here considerable development work has been done,  showing that the property is a very-  valuable one. The Carmi vein has  also been traced to the May, owned by  the same parties. Included in the group  Own*'!     Hv   fl-iotn.   are  Vine Mn, 3, No. 6,  No.   2   Bractio-a   una    xri-s    -__���..*_._..  Across   the   river is the Great Hopes  group,   owned  by   Messrs.   Dale and  Kerr,   and   Olson   and Phelan.   This  property contains, high silver, values-  running   from 60 to 200 ounces in silver and a few dollars in  gold.   The  .values occur in an 18-inch paystreak on  the footwall of a pophyry dyke 60 feet  wide and all through  the dyke values  of from SI to S3.50 in gold have been  received.    On Carmi hill several properties have been more or less developed.  Kit Hudson has a claim in   which he  uncovered   a   6-foot   vein   containing  gold and copper values,  while Robertson   and  others   have   exposed   good  showings.   .Three-miles above Carmi  is China creek.   On this creek are the  Butte   &   Helena,   developed   by   K.  Roberts.   The; ore here is of a similar  character to that at the Knob Hill big  bodies of low grade gold and copper.  Geo. R. Naden,  Sydney  M. Johnsoa  arid. otl. r   Greenwood   parties   have-  claims   o'n~th is   creek.   Brameltt and  partner are developing a claim on the  south sideof China creek.   Through  draw at the foot of Great Hopes  tain easy access can be secure J to Wa_  lace lake and the headwaters of Beave .  creek where there are many promising-  claims.   Further up the river is Arling- ,  ton camp where the late E. A. Bielea- |  berg   was interested.     Then  in   th* _  vicinity ia Hall's camp.  On the mountain back of Rendell are  the Washington.& Idaho group, owned  by R. E. I*. Brown and associates, the  Sally, owned by Robert Wood, the Bell-  Bounty, Wallace, and other promising  "claims. In fact there is a large mineral  area from Beaver creek up to Arlington  camp. TJp the small tributary streams  jj.nd__along Beaver creejk   itself   that  Boun-  A-  JC.  gives promise of rivalling the  dary. The ledges are not so large but  the values aie higher. It is yet too  early to speak with certainty regarding  this district, but indications point to  one of the most important mining district in the province.  CITIES OF THE WEST FORK.  Of course a district of great "promise  must  have towns.   West Fork is no  exception.    It   has  embryonic    cities  and   some   which   have   passed   that  stage.   The townsite man has to cope  with the district disadvantage that the  valley from Rock creek up is one almost   perfect townsite.    Consquently  besides   the   natural resources of the  district it wants energy, push, brains,  money and  advantageous location to  build up a city.    Carmi City, owned by  Messrs. Kerr & Dale contains 640 acres, i  320 of which has been  subdivided  and  several lots sold.    Having  the Carmi, ;  Butcher Boy and other important properties right at its door and still others  in   the immediate vicinity, the enterprising owners can truthfully advertise  Carmi as the- dinner-bucket and pay  roll town.   Carmi City has been fairly  started.   A.   C.  Dale & Sons, brother  and nephews of J. C. Dale, recently arrived from Carmi, III., and established  a   saw   mill   which   has   already   cut  several thousand feet of lumber.    This __  is   being utilized in  bnilding   stores^  hotels, and residences.    Gorman  WestV  is building a large hotel, F. C.

ANDREW'S SOCIETY  Known Facts of His Life. Connection  With Scotland���The Orders of  Saint Andrew.  The .following paper was read by  W. W. Howe, vice president of St. Andrew's society at its last regular meeting:  In preparing this short paper on the  life of St. Andrew, I have experienced  considerable difficulty, chiefly through  the meagreness of the details  of his career. We can, however,  ���conveniently divide the subject into  three parts.  1. The actual known facts of St.  Andrew'slife and death as related in  the New Testament and other contemporaneous works.  2. The connection of St. Andrew  with Scotland.  3. The orders of St. Andrew. The  name Andrew is Greek, St. Andrew  was a Bethsaida. defined as Bethsaida  of Galilee: He was a brother of Simon  Peter and lived in the same house with  him at Capernaum, like his brother too,  he was a fisherman. He was a disciple  of John the Baptist, and was the first  to follow Christ. Again, when the  same followers were called to a closer  allegiance, he, with Peter, received the  first summons. In all the lists of the  disciples his name follows St. Peter's,  or is only separated from it by those of  St. James and St. John; but, .in spite  of this precedence, St. Andrew like the  majority of his colleagues, falls into  the background after the crucifixion of  Christ, for, in thc Acts of the Apostles,  he is never mentioned after the list in  the first chapter. The evidence as to  his later history too is scanty and conflicting, one authority stating that  Scythia was the scene of his labours.  On the other hand, according to Jerome, his work was confined to Achaia  right up to the time of his death.  Then, again in the early times of the  ^Christian church, a spurious supplement to the Acts of the Apostles was  circulated among certain   sects   under  "'-the title of '"The   Acts   of. Andrew."  "This history is said to have been written in Hebrew   by Abdias,  Bishop of  3abylon, a contemporary  of the apos-  les, and translated into Latin by  Julius Af ricanus.   According to this work,  it is related   of  St.   Andrew   that   he  - spent a portion of his life in Russia, in  which country-even to the present  day-he is held in great veneration as  the apostle who first preached Christ-  _____ janitxjnL_that., country. The^ legends  related in "The Acts of Andrew"  cofstantly turn upon the subject of  adultery and the relations of married  persons. Such teaching we find directly connected with the causes leading to his death.  Of the actual martyrdom of St. Andrew, and indeed of the time and place  of his martyrdom, accounts do not  vary; nor are the accounts of the causes  leading up to it much at variance.  According to the work previously referred to, his martyrdom is said to have  been impart occasioned by his supposed  interference between Aegeas, the Roman governor of Patrae and his wife  Maximilla. The usual and accepted  account of the death of St. Andrew, is  for endeavouring to convert Aegeas,  the Roman governor at Patrae, he was  ordered to be scourged and crucified,  and that his death might be more  lingering, he was fattened to the cross  with cords instead of nails. He exhorted the crowds, who gathered round  the scene of his execution, to persevere  iri Christianity. He hung on the cross  for two days, dytng on Nov. 30���what  year, is not known exactly but it is  generally accepted as being 62 or 70  A. D. The instrument of his martyr-  ��� *dom is always said to have been across  decussato���i. e. two pieces of timber  crossing in the middle in the form of  an X��� hence St. Andrew's cross.  His body was buried at Patrae in  Greece, but afterwards removed to Con-  stantinople, where it is supposed it  still lies, in the great church, built bj-  the Christian Emperor Constantine.  There gentlemen, you have all the  known facts relating to the life and  death of St. Andrew, apostle, saint,  martyr and patron saint of Scotland.  Doubtless some of my hearers will be  disappointed that so little is actu**lly  known of the patron saint of our  country; for there is much   myth   and  romance related of some patron saints.  I heard a sketch of the life of St. Andrew given before a gathering of a certain Caledonian Society, in which the  patron saint was accredited with having actually visited Scotland and  preached the gnspel there, being also  the first to teach Christianity in the  country. This appears to be absolutely  impossible, and probably is a case of  the wish being father to the thought:  That St. Andrew visited Russia and  preached there is polsible-quite possible, buc that he ever saw Scotland  seems impossible. Nor does there  seem to have been any of the early  missionaries from Iona, chief among  whoiri were St. Patrick and St. Colum-  ba, named Andrew. We may therefore safelj* conclude that the real apostle, St. Andrew never visited Scotland  at all, and if any divine named Andrew  did visit Scotland and preach there, he  must of been a missionary of a period  subsequent to the time pf St. Andrew,  and therefore we must look elsewhere  for facts to connect St. Andrew with  Scotland as the patron saint of the  country.  The link connecting St. Andrew with  Scotland is, according to history���  which at the same time we must always  remember is not too reliable during this  early period���the result of a vow made  by Achius King of Scots and Hungus  King of Picts.  These two kings, at the head of their  armies, were about to .be attacked by  Athelstan King of England, who had  an enormous, and supposed invincible  army north, to finally crush the  troublesome Picts and Scots. On the  evening before the battle-so* the story  runs-a St. Andrew's cross appeared in  the sky, which both Achaius and Hungus saw, or thought they saw. They  considered this a good omen and a  possible sign of victory, and promptly  made a vow, if the supposed prophesy  were fulfilled, according to their inter-  petation of it viz : by their gaining the  victory next day, that they would bear  the St. Andrew's cross on their ensigns  and banners. Needless to say, in this,  as in all similar traditions* the omen  turned out alright, the prophecy was  fulfilled and Athelstam with his army  was completely routed and driven south  across the border. This happebed  somewhere about 930 A. D.  Some years prior to this incident-i. e.  late in the 9th or early iri trie 10th  century, St. Regulus or Rule, is said to  have taken refuge in Mucros, subsequently called Kilrymout and afterwards St. Andrews, bringing with him  some of the bones of the martyred St.  Andrew, which being enshrined there  there continued to be an object oE pilgrimage for several centuries. A cave  on the sea shore still bears the name of  St. Rule. He seems to have founded a  monastry there of which the Scottish  King Constantine, having resigned his  crown/became abbot about the year  940 A. D. Now this monastry being  dedicated to St. Andrew, and having  already become famous as an object of  pilgrimage, and St. Andrew having already��� become- the_-metropoliS-_of_..the.  church in Scotland, it would naturally  follow, that the name of 3t. Andrew  would be more familiar to the people  of the period, than any other saint.  Consequently the aid of St. Andrew  would be invoked by prayerful people  in times of distress or danger, and  gradually and almost inperceptibly,  out of sheer force of habit, it would become the custom of the Scots to recog-  n:se St. Andrew as their patron saint.  Their children, too, would be certain to  have these beliefs firmly instilled into  them, for we all know how strong that  faculty for receiving and handing down  tradition is, and always has been in  the Scottish character. It is very  likely, therefore, that in these incidents���the carrying of the bones of St.  Andrew to Scotland by St. Regulus,  ollowed by the foundation of the monastry of St. Andrew and the vision of  Achaius and Hungus���we have the real  reason of the adoption of St. Andrew  as the patron saint of Scotland, for,  possibly even very probably both  Achaius and Hungus knew of the bones  of St. Andrew enshrined at the town of  that name, and this knowledge possibly helped them to imagine they saw  a St. Andrew's cross in the sky , the  evening before the battle in which  they defeated Athelstan King of England. We ma)* therefore safely conclude that it is on accaunt of the veneration in which the memory of St.  Andrew was held for centuries after  his death, and which found expression  in the carrying of his bones to Scotland  by St. Regulus; and uot through any  act of St. Andrew that he was recognised as the patron saint of   Scotland.  The orders of St- Andrew are two,  the Scottish aud the Russian. Taking  the Scottish order first, we find it is an  ancient order of knighthood known as  the order of St. Andrew or the Thistle.  The order is said to have been in exis  tence in the reign of James V of Scotland, and after a period of abeyence to  have been revived by James VII of  Scotland and II of England in the year  1687.  It is perhaps more correct however,  to accept the institution of the order as  May 29, 1687. Statutes were issued  and eight knights nominated by James  II of Great Britain, but the patent for  the order never passed the Great Seal.  After falling entirely into abeyance  during the reign of William and Mary,  the order was revived by Queen Anne  Dec. 31. 1703.  The star of the order is worn on the  left side. It consists of a St. Andrew's  cross of silver embroidery, With rays  emanating from between the points of  the cross, in the centre of which is a  thistle of gold and green upon a field of  green, surrounded by a circle of green  bearing the motto of the order in golden characters. The badge or jewel is  worn pendent to the collar, or to b dark  green ribbon over the left shoulder,  and tied under the arm. It consists of  the figure of St. Andrew with the cross  enamelled, and chased on rays of gold;  the cross and feet resting upon a  ground of enamelled green. The collar  is of thistles, intermingled with sprigs  of rue. By- a statute passed in May  1827, the order is to consist of the sovereign and 16 knights. The letters  K. T. are placed after the names of  knights of, the order. The motto is  "Nemo me impune lacesset."  The Russian order of St. Andrew is  the highest in the empire and was  founded by Peter the Great ln 1698. It  It is confined to members of the Imperial Family, princes, generals-in-  chief, and others of like rank. The  badge of the order shows on the obverse  a St. Andrew's cross, enamelled in  in blue, bearing a figure of the saint,  surmounted by a crown, and in the four  corners of the cross the letters S. A. P.  R., Sanctus Andreas Patronus Russiae.  On the reverse is a spread eagle, with  the words . in Russian. For religion  aud loyalty and the name of the saint.  The collar consists of a St. Andrew's  cross alternating with imperial crowns.  And now in reviving this subject we  find, a humble modest apostle, saint  and martyr, of whose actual history  very little is known, "yet whose teaching and life, left such impression upon  the people of his time, that his memory  has been held sacred, and. his name  revered,; by christians generally for  over 1800 years.  Leaving out the Russian veneration  of St. Andrew, which prqbably, arises  through his being, rightly or wrongly  and possibly rightly credited with being the first to preach Christianity in  that country, we as Scotsmen, claim  him as the patron saint of our native  country. Can we not therefore find  some traits in the character of St. Andrew, akin to the Celtic type ? I think  we can. We have very little record to  work upon, yet upon the. cause of his  martyrdom, all writers are practically  agreed. We find that St. Andrew had  determination sufficient, at least, to  carry out the work committed to his  chargeyherhad"coufa7ge,~fb^  afraid to preach to Ageas the Roman  governor of Patrae, when duty ' called  him to do so; he had the courage of his  convictions, and aired them fearlessly',  for we find that he was not afraid to  tell even the Roman governor that he  was wrong, although he must of known  it meant certain death to do so.  Now, take the average typical Scot  and you find predominant in his character���determination���courage, devotion to duty, with a dogged, persistent,  wont-be-beaten sort of nature tacked  on to to these already mentioned qualities. Here we have the chief cause of  the success of Scotsmen. All the  world over, they have been conspicuous  in fighting their coumtry's battles,  they have, been the most aggressive,  persistent and determined pioneers of  civilisation; the greatest missionary  and explorer the world ever knew was  a Scotsman. Scotsmen have through  all time filled high and honourable positions in the empire's service; and  have been in the lead in the progress of  the world. What can we attribute this  success to, other than these traits of  character, which are found iri a greater  or less degree in every Scotsman, and  which we find have been handed down  to us throngh the example of the patron  saint of our country.  Let us hope the Scottish character  will ever contain these qualities, and  then we will always be able to make  light of the merest suggestion of the  decline of the nation.  STRAYED.

There was a large attendance at the  public meeting in the city hall on Tuesday night called to discuss the railway  situation. Mayor Jakes presided and  Duncan Ross was appointed secretary.  It was decided that as the meeting was  a thoroughly representative one, resolutions be passed instead of securing  signatures to petitions.  J. R. Brown moved and W. E. McPherson seconded the following resolution which was carried after a brief  discussion:  Whereas, It is essential to the interests of the interiorof British Columbia  and in particular to that portion of the  interior known as the Boundary district that the Coast-Kootenay railway  should be constructed with the least  possible delay.  And whereas, The present government of British Columbia has intimated that it will not build nor operate  the said projected Coast-Kootenay  railway as a government road.       . 0  Therefore be it Resolved, That this  meeting of the citizens of Greenwood  emphatically declares that it is essential in the interests of Greenwood and  the surrounding district that the said  railway should be constructed and  operated by "a company which is and  which will be independent of the Canadian Pacific Railway company.  G. R. Naden moved'and Duncan Mcintosh seconded the following which  Was carried unanimously:  Whereas, There are several applications before the Legislative Assembly  of British Columbia for railway charters from the Kootenay to the coast.  And whereas, It would take some  considerable time to build such a line;  And whereas, The Vernon and Midway railway could be built at once  through a new and vast mineral region,  as well as the great Okanagan agricultural valley, thereby giving an immediate all Canadian Kootenay Coast connection;  Be it therefore resolved that this  meeting urge upon the Government  the necessity of granting this charter,  and recommending that sufficient aid  be also, gran ted to insure immediate  construction;  And be it further resolved that copies  of this resolution be forwarded to the  members of the Government, and  the press.  The meeting then adjourned.  THE CITY COUNCIL.  L  Business Transacted at its Last Regular Meeting.;  Mayor Jakes presided at the regular  meeting of the council on Monday  evening and Aid. Naden, Caulfield,  Sullivan, Sutherland and Ross were  present. Max Berger, representing  the K. .of P., interviewed the council  relative to a plot in the cemetery for  that order. It. wasT decide~d"Td"give the"  Knights one-half acre for cemetery  purposes, provided they fenced and  plotted the same under the direction of  the city engineer. J. Kirkup, govern-  mnent agent, Rossland, in response to  a telegram from the mayor, regarding  the case of a non-resident indigent  sick, replied that the "government will  reimburse city provided person is not  dominciled within the municipality. "  The particular case to which the correspondence over the wire referred to  was Jno, Allen who came to the city  from one of lhe camps dangerously ill.  Having neither money nor friends, the  tK-grd of health sent him to the Greenwood hospital. As there have been  several similar cases in which the  government successfully repudiated its  responsibility. Mr. Kirkup's telegram  was referred to the board of health  with instructions to prepare a statement to be presented to the government so that a definite understanding  might be arrived at.  Almacher & Wilson, merchant tailors, asked for a crossing opposite their  place of business. Petitions were presented asking for a sidewalk on south  side of Gold street and another asking  for grade on Silver, and Mamont  streets- These matters were referred  to the street committee. The revenue,  health and Sunday observance amendment by-laws were read a third time.  The tramway agreement by-law was  read a first anil second time and the  council adjourned.  NELSON RESOLUTIONS.  who have all their property interests in  the mining" districts of Southeastern  British Columbia, is wholly dependent  on the mining and smelting,,industries  in that section;'Therefore, be is resolved:  First, that in our opinion the Hon.  A. G. Blair, minister of railways and  canals, should have the unanimous  support of the members of parliament  from British Columbia in the effort he  is making to insure the growing smelting industry of Kootenay and Yale  an adequate supply of coal and coke  from the Crow's Nest mines, the profitable working of which was rendered  possible by the completion of the  Crow's Nest Pass railway, the greater  part of the cost of which was borne by  the Dominion government*  Second, that the member for Nelson  riding in the provincial legislature is  voicing public opinion in supporting  Hon. D. M. Eberts, attorney-general,  who has' given notice that the Dunsmuir government will incorporate provisions in the Crow's Nest Pass Southern railway bill that will prevent disci imination in favor of Montana smelters as against smelters in British  Columbia.  Be it further resolved, that the building of what is common ly known as the  Coast to Kootenay railway should be  left to private enterprise, as it-is not of  such importance as to warrant the pts-  vince in aiding its construction by a  cash subsidy; but, instead, substantia  aid should be given to insure the immediate construction of a railway, that  would give the f armersof the Okanagan  Lake country a direct outlet to the mining camps in Southern Yale and Southern Kootenay, which wonld place them  in a position to complete with the farmers of the Colville and other farminS  districts in Washington.  The passage of these resolutions shows  how easily a designing politician 'can  jumble' up the good and the bad in order to attain his objects. Mr. Huston  was out to get an expression of public  opinion in Nelson favorable to the C.  P. R. and combined two or three different matters in order to cater to everybody. Mr. Taylor wished to have . the  subject matters treated separately, but  this Mr. Huston opposed and as he was  running the meeting the resolutions  passed as introduced.  9     .        \- �����������'  I'-XF.

The citizens of Greenwood should have more confidence in  each other and should encourage everything that tends to promote Greenwood's interests.

The public meeting on Tuesday evening affain demonstrated that the people of Greenwood believe in railway  competition, also in the development  of the West Fork country by the eaaly  construction of the Midway and Vernon road. Public opinion throughout  the province appears to be a unit in  favor of the construction of the Coast-  Kootenay railway by an independent  company. The people are also realizing thc importance o E the Midway and  Vernon road from a financial standpoint- Governments do not always  heed public opinion but with reference  to those two projects, it is so pronounced that it would mean political  suicide for the government to disregard it.  Railway Situation.  It would be well if tHe Dunsmuir administration would face this question  frankly and honestly, and let us know  what we are to expect from it. It lies  in the power at the present time un-  doubtally to deny the people what they  ask, and what they are entitled to obtain, but they may be assured that if  they go contrary to the wishes of the  country on this matter they will be  turned out of office on the first occasion  the people have of awarding them  their deserts.���Rossland Miner.  Reporting Smallpox.  The man who suspects that he or his  family may be afflicted by a contagious  disease and does not promptly investigate and take the necessary measures  to protect others, even at the cost of  serious discomfort to himself, is guilty  of taking the lives of others. It is not  a pleasant thought, but it is the truth.  The best protection for one's self or  one's neighbors so long as smallpox  continues to exist in the northwest is  that old remedy, prompt and thorough  vaccinatton.���Spokane Coronicle.

McLagan, managing editor of the Vancouver World,  will be regretted in this province and  iu many parts of Canada. As managing editor of the World he did much to  promote the interests of this province  and while he made many political  enemies because of the strong views  he expressed, all who knew him will  pay tribute to his many noble qualities.  Opponents Tribute,  In politics and public affairs generally Mr. McLagan throughout his life  took the greatest interest and he was  always ready to bear his part in the  discussion of any question of current  importance. He could lucidly expond  his views and his opponents sometimes  charged to obstinacy what was probably only the Scotch sturdiness in his  nature battling for what he held to be  the right view of the matter under consideration. Like all men of strong  opinions and who are not afraid to ex-  press,the.m,_.Mi\ McLagair had enemies  as well as staunch friends but, now  that he has ������ passed away, we think  there will be none but will have kindly thoughts of him and will long remember the cheery countanence and  hearty tones of one so familiarly and  affectionately known to all as "Mac."  ���News Advertiser.

To THR Editor.���I am surprised at  the lack of public interest lhat is be-  itiff taken the tramway agreement now  being considered by the council. The  scheme is one of so much importance  to the city that it would be a fatal mistake to kill it by too much caution on  the part of the city fathers. In all industries associated with mining there  is always an element of chance which  if not taken will successfully prevent  the carrying into effect of a single project. The great objection appears to  be taken not to the bonus wanted but  to the possibility of the S5,000 deposited by the Tramway company being lost to the city. There is not a  business man in the city but which  would be benefitted to that extent by  the early construction of the tramway.  The scheme, if carried into effect,  means much for Greenwood.

BOARD OF TRADE.  ROCK CREEK PLACER.  Business Transacted at Its Regular  Meetine.  The regular monthly meeting of the  Greenwood Board of Trade was held on  Weduesday last with President Naden  in the chair. A communication was  read from W. Armstrong, Spokane, urging upon them to cooperate with him iu  securing a Boundary exhibit of n*it_e-  rals at the Buffala exposition. \V. T.  Smith was appointed a committee of  one to interview mine owners for the  purpose of securing a representative  exhibit. An anonymous correspondent suggested to the Board the desirability of securing a down town Dominion Expsess office and the stocking of  Boundary Creek with fish. ,The secretary was instructed to write the Dominion Express Company and the department of Marine and Fisheries in  reference to these matters.  �� R.,B. Kerr, Phoenix, addressed the  board on the absence of proper court  facilities in this district. He pointed  out that every other place in the province had sittings of th<_ court of assize  save the towns in the Boundary. A  committee consisting of H. C. Shaw,  A. M. Whiteside, J. R. Brown and  Duncan Ross were appointed to prepare a statement for the attorney-  general pointing out the necessity for  a court of assize in the Boundary.  J. W.  Grier and  McL.eod & Brown  were elected members of the board..  L,. M. Rice, superintendent of construction for the Greenwood���Phoenix  Tramway Company, is expected back  from Seattle on the 20th inst.  More Ground Staked   During   Last  -    Week.  H. E. Price and Percy Godenrath,  visited the Rock Creek -placers on Sunday last. Mr. Godenrath reports that  during the last few days Rock creek  and its tributary streams have once  more become the Mecca for placer gold  hunters and there has been a rush to  stake claims.  The excitement is principally due to  the operations of a local company that  has acquired leases and is working below the historic White's bar, on this  creek.  Within two weeks this company will  commence '-booming" and a profitable  cleanup is anticipated. As a consequence placer land along the adjacent  creeks is being rapidly staked. This  is especially the case along Baker creek  and the south fork of Rock creek,  where pay dirt is found.  Alex Bloomfield, Bart Ingerham and  others have acquired leases on Baker  creek and H. D. Sykes, J. G. Billings,  C. H. Fair and J. Sprout have recorded  on the South Fork.  Since their discovery in the early 60s  the Rock creek placer diggings, under  the most primitive methods,- are reported to have yielded over $250,000 in  gold.    ":"  Miners are apparently well satisfied  that if bedrock can. be reached much  more of the yellow metal will be discovered. During the summer. extensive operations by "booming" creeks  will be prosecuted along the company's  ground and on Baker creek.  *��###��*.#��**����**�� ��.��.$#<������.*����.  9  ��  ��  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  fits  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  ��r  9  *  *  *  *  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  You will save money by buying your groceries from us.

He Discusses the Railway Situation  and States the Effect an Open-Door  Railway Policy Will Have Upon the  Development of This  Province.  Robert Jaffray of Toronto, chief promoter of the Crow's Nest Southern railway; president of the Crows  Nest Coal Co.; president of the Can-  boo-McKinnay Mining and Milling  Co.; a shareholder in the Dominion  Copper Co., and heavily interested iu  the mines of Republic camp was a visitor in the city the end of last week.  Mr. Jaffray looked hale and hearty notwithstanding- the worries he had undergone at Victoria and the hard trips he  had been making through the district  by wagon roads that at this particular  season are none of the best. He was  seen by a Times reprrsentative at the  Hotel Armstrong and chatted entertainingly about railroad charters,  mines, and the districts through which  he had been travelling.  As he had come directly fron Camp  McKinney the subject of the famous  Cariboo mine was first taken up. He  confirmed recent reports that the winze  sunk from the fourth level in the east,  era end of the workings was in exceptionally rich one. "it proved the' vein  down to a depth of 460 feet, the greatest depth in the mine. For thepresent  the capacity of thc mill���20 stamps���  jwill not be increased. It is probable  however^that a new working shaft will  be sunk on the west end of the property  and by the time this is completed and  the old levels extended west to connect  with it the mine will be in shape to increase the stamp capacity.  Speaking of his interests in the  Dominion Copper Company, operating  the Brooklyn���Stemwinder group in  Hhoenix Camp, Mr. Jaffray expressed  himself as satisfied that the company's  holdings there give great promise for  the future. Asked where the proposed  smelter was to be located, he turned to  \V- T. Smith who was standing near  him and passed the question up to him,  Smith however failed to respond with  anything authorative simply stating  that James Breen was believed to be in  Toronto settling with the directors of  the company this question.  Conversation then drifted to Republic Camp, and it was learned that recent development at depth in the Republic Mine was causing tbe directors  "somethought asto future treatment of.  the ore. While on the upper levels  the ore was susceptible for treatment  at the company's mill, the character  changed materially as depth is gained  ���silver playing a more conspicous  part in the ore contents. The mill can  only save SO per cent of the values of  the white metal and consequently  smelter treatment would be more adaptable to the ore. However as there  is considerable ore yet to be mined in  the upper levels the mill is assured of a  steady run  for   quite   a   period.  The Quilp mine.in which Mr. Jaffray  is also interested has under the new  management turned out remarkably  well. On the 200-foot level an ore body  12 feet wide was being raised upon and  the values averaged over $25 per ton.  The mine is opened to a depth of 530  feet on the vein.  "I want to thank the people of the  Boundary for the manner in which they  have spoken on the railway policy for  the province��� I mean the "open door"  policy as it is turmed," said Mr. Jaffray in conclusion. "If the-government  heed the wishes of the people the  Crow's Nest Southern railway charter  will be granted us. Of course there is  opposition to its being granted, and  that opposition comes not from the  people who are vitaly interested but  from the Canadian Pacific railway,  Should the charter be granted it means  no subsidy from the province but a  large increase .in its revenues. It  means a cheapening of coke to the  smelters and the employment of hundreds of men in the upbuilding of an  industry that will support three towns.  Mr. Hyamsof Butte,'the manager of  ' the Boston. & Montana Consolidated  Copper & Silver Mining Company  stands ready, the moment the charter  ,. is.granted, to build a silver-lead smelt-  ; er at the coal fields. His offer was  I confirmed by telegram which has as  you   know   already   been   published.  Such a smelter would add an impetus  to the silver-lead miners as it-would' be  in a position to treat the ores ;at a lesser rate than what is now being-  charged,"   he concluded.   ;  While in the city Mr. Jaffray visited  smelter. He left here on Saturday for  Fernie and goes from the coal fields  direct to Toronto.  WEST FORK DISTRICT  out nued from First Pag-c.J  livery stable while W. W. Woods has  his building for a stationery and notion  store already erected. There is also a  shingle mill running and a brewery  and bottling works underway.  The Carmi, Butcher Boy and other  contiguous properties cannot be .developed without men. They naturally  congregate at one central point in  order that they may enjoy the advantages of schools, stores, hotels, newspaper offices and all the other concomitants of city life. That central, point  is Carmi City. With the development  of the mines Carmi will flourish. But  the West Fork will not be a district  wtth one town. There should be no  jealous rivalry between those that  grow up. They all will be the product  of certain conditions. With the exploitation of the mineral, agricultural,  and timber wealth of the country there  will be a commercial city on the West  Fork. A strategic point for the upbuilding of such a city is where Beaver  creek empties into the West Fork.  Here is where Rendell is situated.  The townsite is a good one, level country with sufficient slope towards the  river to furnish good drainage. The  townsite has been surveyed and lots  are now on the market. Fisher's saw  mill has been established here for  some time and has already cut considerable, lumber. Thc townsite is  owned by Robert Wood, R. Smailes  and others. They intend opening up  a general store, grading the streets  carrying out other improvements. M.  J. Phelan, formerly of Greenwood, has  a store here and is agent for Fisher's  sawmill.   ������  As has already been stated the whole  West Fork valley is almost one continuous townsite so that no can have a  cinch on the business, but from its location, Rendell can be made the Greenwood of the West Fork.  Two miles further up is Beaverton.  The townsite is again perfect. It has  two hotels, one a really good one run  by D. W. Smith, formerly of Greenwood, and two stores. The stores are  being moved to Carmi, and as two  towns cannot live in such close proximity, rumor has it that the hotel men  will move to Rendell. At West Bridge  Alf Cameron runs a comfortable hotel  and G. O. Guise a general store.  Across the river M. D. McLeod has an  hotel.  THE WAGON ROAD.  A wealth of information on   how to  build "the Ieast~aniouht~bf "wagotr'road  for the largest amount of public money  can easily be secured in the West Fork  country.   From Rock Creek to   Carmi,  the interrupted portions of the government wagon road, the magnificent rock  cuts,   wide  enough   for   a    standard  gauge railway, the sixty foot right-of-  way cut the full width even to the fraction of an inch is an eloquent tribute to  departmental red tape and engineering  stupidity.   C. A. E.   Shaw   has   been  criticized and blamed for the  blunders  on the West Fork but the blame should  go elsewhere.   There is ^.n  officer in  this province who goes   by   the   high  sounding title of public works engineer  who learned red tape in Dominion government employ and has been  applying his knowledge to the detriment of  the province.   Money has been squandered on useless rights-of-way and expensive bridges,   consequently   appropriations run out before roads are completed.   West Fork is   not an  isolated  case.   An appropriation was made for  a road   to   the   Mount   Baker   Mines.  The money went in clearing a 60 foot  right  of   way    notwithslanding    the  strong protests of practical   road  men  aud the people most directly interested.  Shaw placed the road in the best place,  the   grade given is a good one, but  starting in  to build it on on Gamble's  extravagant specifications, assured by  the   latter gentleman  that   plenty of  funds would be forthcoming, he soon  got orders from   the government that  the  appropriation was exhausted and  the wore was discontinued.    For a few  thousand   dollars   the    Carmi   people  built   more wagon road that is being  used today than the government built  for nearly 520,000.   The government's  is a better road but of what value is it  when it ends in a rock bluff that cannot   be   removed   without additional  money.   The blunders of last year are  past and something should be done in  the  immediate   future.     The   tempo  rary bridges built over the West Fork  will be carried away by high water  leaving the district without any means  of communication. The government  should act at once. A few thousand  dollars expended by a practical man  will not build Howe truss bridges or  make a wagon road on railway grade,  but it will complete the present wagon  road along lines tnat will meet the requirements of the district until the  railway is completed.  WEST FORK RAILWAY.  One of the most important, if not the  most' important railway project at  present before parliament, is the Mid-  way-Vernon railway. It is a development road. It will open a promising  mining district and also open a market for the farmers of the Okanagan.  In addition to this it is a money making scheme from a provincial standpoint. The guaranteeing of interest  on the cost of construction of this road  will be the means whereby increased  traffic is assured the Shuswap & Okanagan railway, thus relieving the province from the payment of the guaranteed interest on the S. & O. This  increased irafflc will be more than  local. Under the most favorable conditions it will be at least three years  before the Coast-Kootenay road is completed. With the Midway and Vernon  road completed, all the coast traffic  from Kootenay and Boundary would  be made via Sicamous, instead of Revelstoke. The railway does not interfere  with any of the railway, projects. It is  in the interest of the district and of the  province and should receive every encouragement from the government.  ::   DEVELOPMENT OF THE WE1ST FORK.  The greatness of the province will  materially depend upon the enterprise  and wisdom of the people. It  will never be great if one city struggles' to build up itself and tear down  another. Its people must realize that  they are a unitand that the development  ot one place helps another. The West  Fork is a district of great possibilities.  Give it half a chance and it will do its  share in making this country rich and  poupulous. Its development means  much for Greenwood, increasing our  trade and enlarging-.our field for operations. We should back it up in all its  undertakings from a* selfish if-not a  higer standpoint. First, give it a  wagon road and next, a railway and it  will abundantly reward the province  for every dollar expended.  ���FOR���  PAINTING  PAPERING  DECORATING  AND SIGN  iEST MATERIALS  EST    WORK  ENTIRE SATISFACTION  WALL PAPERS...

It is nearly two years  ago since, at  "the very outbreak of the Boer war, two  very   remarkable   letters appeared in  the London Times over the signature,  ���'P. S."   They were written by a Boer  then living in  South Africa, and for  vindictiveness   and'   almost    savage  hatred of Britain, coupled with  a tor-  .rent of abuse and satire which upheld  .in a prophecy of the certain rout of the  . British army before the soldiers of the  Transvaal,   would   be   hard   to   beat.  Once  more "P.  S." has spoken.    We  "print below his third letter, it is an un-  ��� "qualified recantation and is worded in  ��� the same forcible style as the others:  ,    Sir:���Since   you published my letter  -on October last   a very  great .change  - has taken   place   in   the  condition   of  -affairs, which it would be madness   to  ���: ignore.    I failed not to tell you in my  ������-.former letters the plain and- absolute  ��� truth about your Government and your  -people, your   vices, your crimes,  and  ..your imbecilities, which were as great  -as those which which led to the destruction of the people in the Cities of  the Plain.   Even as those cities would  .have been saved if SO, or even ten,  righteous men had been found in them,  -so now it is evident that some righteous men have been found amongst the  liii-glish, arid by them your Empire has  been saved from destruction. It is  -now my last and most painful duty to  "tell the bitter, but wholesome, truth to  ~my   own   people   and  to   those   fatal  ::f riends who have helped us to our  pre-  -sent ruin,  1. My visit to the continent has convinced me that there is no possibility  ���of aid being given by any foreign  /power to my people, and that none will  ^venture to propose arbitration. It is  -childish for us to expect arbitration  ���when, if our position were like yours,  *we should reject it even if proposed by  ��11 the powers on earth���and it would  ���prove us to be' cowards to ask for it  Tao��� under :.our present hopeless con-  ���-ditions.  2. The events which we expected to  ���-arise in India, China, and Egypt  have  not occured, the promised insurrection  iin Ireland did not take place,   and  we  .hare not the slightest reason to hope  ;:now that any international  questions  '-will arise to help the Afrikander cause.  "We must not be deceived any longer  by the false sympathy expressed for us  tby various parties   in  foreign  states;  that sympathy is merely a  subterfuge  ~to obtain, some   political   interest*   of  ���-opposing parties, and we are but- the  ��� tools which our false friends use to  .^attain their ends.  3. That so large a number of liberal  .members of parliament  have recently  ��� declared their opposition to our independence and have asserted their  .loyalty to the British Empire has been  -a. most disagreeable surprise to us and  -an absolutely fatal blow to all our  .hopes. Finally, the speech of Lord  ..Kimberley on the 14th inst. must   con-  ��� vince every sane man that further   re-  "^istanceon-our'part isuiot-only-useless  "but perfectly criminal' madness. Had  "that speech been. made  nine  months  ��� 3Lgo and the intentions of the. liberal  ..party made clear to us,. this unhappy  --war might have been honourably con-  ��� eluded long ago.  4.' To prepare the way for a perma-  -nent settlement of Africa which shall  i benefit our children and our children's  ��� children, and to make  our Afrikander  ��� blood to take its due place in the future  .. government of the world, it is neces-  < sary for me to refer to a  little   of   the  ��� liistory of the last 70 years, and also  'to first principles, the true foundations  -of empire.  5. Fifty years ago,   when   I  was  a  -yonng man, there was a large   number  -of ���ntelligent African Dutch   who   respected the justice and power of Eng-  :iand,   although   they  loved .not   the  English any more than they loved  the  ���white men of other  European   States,  -for most of whom they felt only   scorn  -and contempt.   Your wars against the  -Kaffirs had benefitted us, and we loyal  ���and   farseeing   Afrikanders dreamed,  "before Cecil Rhodes   was   born, of  a  .great  Anglo-Dutch   African    Empire  .stretching from Cape Agulhas to Tunis  . and from Cape Verd to Guardafui   un-  ��� der one flag, the British,   and   having  ��� one language, the English. That  ���-dream was dispelled  by   your   giving  independence to the two states. Time  ���passed. The wishes of the Cape Colonists were again and again  disregard-  ��� -ed; England would, not guarantee in-  -, terest on loans for the development of  *the colony; England would not   annex  South-West Africa; England would not  "buy up the Portugese territory when  . it might have been   purchased   for   a  ���song; England evacuated Abyssinia  --after conquering it   in   a   marvellous  manner; England contemplated giving  up her : West African possessions;  England fumbled and faltered in As-  hanti, in Zululand, in the Transvaal,  and in Egypt and Zanzibar. Vast  areas of Africa were allowed by the  British to pass out of the heritage, the  birthright, of the Afrikanders into the  hands of the _*>rench, the Belgians, the  Germans, and the Chartered Company,  and. our dream of an Anglo-Dutch  Empire with its hundreds of millions  of united- white men collapsed, because  of the mean, shifty, and baseless policy  of a parcel of counting-house clerks,  who, occupying the position of cabinet  ministers in London, refused to listen  to the colonists and to those Englishmen who knew Africa and its many  peoples, and its vast wealth in minerals  and other resources. Those penny wise  and thousand-pound foolish windbags  of the lords and commons were utterly  incapable of understanding the first  principles of true statesmanship, and  were anxious only to slink away from  the responsibilities of empire so that  they might have time to bemuse and  bemuddle a silly and. besotted electorate.  6. Our dream of a British African  Empire being ended, we united our  fate with that of our Boer relatives  with the view of founding an exclusiv-  ly Dutch Empire in Africa. To that  end it was necessary for us to possess  all the East African territory of the  Portugese. Those territories were protected by the treaties you English had  made with Portugal, and a war against  Portugal would have produced war  against you, otherwise we would have  swept those monkey-men out of Africa  years ago, and now we are sorry that  we did not do so. .  7. Led on by men whom it is not  necessary to mention, we determined  to fight you for supremacy in South  Africa. We have been accused of ig-.  norance over and over again by your  British bookworms, but none of you  now can accuse of want of foresight or  want of preparation for war, which we  had made through long years of  trouble, toil, and self-denial aud self-  repression.  We had every reason to be confident  of success, and, as your best generals  well know, we were within an ace of  achieving it. Mr. Steyn and scores of  others assured us of your complete  military weakness, and all the world  had' ample proof of the wavering,  womanly weakness of the British  national will, never stable for a single  month. It was you who planted the  seeds of war and have brought them to  fruition by that miserable, cowardly,  weakness which is more deadly than  tyranny or injustice. But you have  been saved from defeat. Mr. Kruger  informed us that God had told him to  declare against you. 'If He did tell the  the late president that, it is certainly  evident that God is not with us any  longer and that it is obstinate rebellion against Him for ns to continue our  resistance .until we ' be all destroyed  root and branch.  8. In this dark hour of defeat and despair it is necessary to put forth the  truth for a solid foundation forthe permanent settlemen Uof=therace.question,  between the British and the Dutch  wittout hypocrisy or maudlin superstition. If we Dutch had won in this  game of war we would of claimed and  taken every penny of the stakes. I  know my people, and I want peace for  my grandchildren, therefore I beg you  to show no weakness or clemency or  conciliation. You have won; then  take the stakes as we should have done.  Do not sow perpetual disputes, quarrels,  and civil war.' South Africa is yours  now by right of purchase, by occupation and colonization, by war and conquest, and by the will of God. We  Dutch are not cowards to shrink from  the consequences of defeat, we are  prepared to take them. If we had won  our terms to you would have been certainly not more easy than these :���  (a) Every British subject or other  who did not surrender by a given date  would be outlawed and all his property confiscated.  (b) All persons who had been guilty  of rebellion or assisting our enemies  would have had all of their property  consfiscated and would have been ex.  pelled from South Africa, with the  death penalty for return.  (c) All other British people in South  Africa, except those who had fought  on our side and possessed certificates  to that effect, would have been disfranchised for life.  (d) The use of the British language  in all cases would have been strictly  forbidden under penalty of fine ore imprisonment. All foreign or alien newspapers would have been surpressed.  We Dutch in Cape Colony and Natal  had equality of rights and of language  with you; that did not satisfy us, for so  long as two languages are permitted  to be used there can be no peace, no  harmony, and no fusion for the people  of South Africa. The stern action of  the Russian government in Poland and  Finland for the suppression of their  native languages is dictated by wise  statesmanship, true humanity, and a  far-seeing regard forthe future welfare  of those peoples. The Austrian Empire will probably be split up simply  by the diversity of languages.  9. Peace and prosperity can come  only by the fusion of the two races or  by the extermimetion and exile of one  of them. Let the irreconcilablcs exile  themselves, and those who have.any  wisdom or decency, morality or religion, submit themselves with calm  fortitude and cheerful acquiescence to  the fate that Providence has decreed.  Our language is but a dialect of no  use in the great world; the English is  the ever-growing language which, if  we adopt, will soon place our sons in  the|seats of the mighty. The descendants of our brave commandants in this  war may then in the future command  the armies of Great Britau, one may  hold the office now occupied by Lord  Roberts, and another be governor-  general of India. The universal loyalty  shown by all your colonies should certainly be a good lesson to us Dutch, if  we are not so blinded by Providence  that we may be destroyed altogether.  I join with P. Botha and the other sane  men iu South Africa in calling on Mr.  Kruger, C. Botha, and De Wet to stop  this murderers' work, and to seize that  double-tongued man Steyn and to give  him his deserts. There are other Dutchmen and half-bred Englishmen in the  Cape Colony who should be treated in  the sanie manner as Styen.  10. All nations thought you English  were dead, but, unfortunately for us,  you were only dead drunk, drugged by  the fatal folly of your disarmament  craze and love of luxury, and the war  has, as yet, only very partially aroused  you. I cannot blind myself to the fact,  however, that new life has been  breathed into the dead bones in the  valleys of Great Britain, and that your  people are gaining strength and spirit  every day. whilst our men are degenerating into murderons bandits and  ruining our land, regardless of the fate  of our women and children who are  now depending upon the generosity of  the British for their food and clothing and their very lives. This state of  things must not continue unless we desire to prove to the world that we  Dutch are worse than   heathen   sava-  g'e3- l  11. I beg for no clemency, conciliation, or soft measures; they would certainly be fatal to us Dutch, for lhe  loyal portion would be always tortured  by the irreconcilables, and there would  be perpetual strife in public and in  family life. The settlement of Africa  can be effected only by strict and rigid  justice, administered with strength  and courage unflinchingly. No more  must we see colonials and others who  worked for the unity and honour of the  British Empire ignored, snubbed, or  degraded while disloyalty and barefaced treachery or treason were rewarded or condoned. Justice, and  righteousness must have strong arms  or-theyiare_butiuseless_^na.mes._a^Mercy.  and clemency are too often the names  which cloak fear, cowardice, bribery,  and corruption. With honest adminis  tration South Africa will very speedily  recover from the effects of this war,  and a more prosperous and a happier  future will come quickly for both  Dutch and English than could ever  have come if the war had not taken  place and the states remained sepaer-  ated. The native question will have to  dealt with soon after the war is over  and to do that effectively the Chartered  Company must be done away with and  its territories united with the great  southern colonies.  12. The petty jingoes who write but  do not fight can spare their sneers at  me. I have sense enough to accept the  logic of facts, whilst they, in their  arrogance, required many disasters to  convince them that we had been well  prepared for war, whilst you were miserably weak and unprepared for a war  in your own territories or anywhere  else.

Last Thursday the Nelson health  officials put in force against all points  west of Grand Forks, the same quarantine regulations that had heretofore  only applied to Phoenix. The reason  for this rather wholesale and entirely  unjustified action, according to the  Nelson Miner, is that the health officers noticed that on the arrival of the  incoming train uot a single passenger  was ticketed from Phoenix and on  looking into the matter it was found  that parties hailing from Phoenix purchased their tickets at other points  than their home town.  t\  The. following- are the ore shipments from Boundary mines to  April 17th inclusive :      .  1900.> 1901 Total  Knob Hill group ..64,535 -65,176         ' 129,711  B.C. mine 19,494 13,027 32,521  Mother Lode  3,564 18,399 21,963  City of Paris  2,000            7.L..  2,000  Golden Crown  18,00             ���  .13,00  Winnipeg 7. ...1,200              , . 1,"*Q0  Athelstan... :".:.....���...  1,350 175 ���    1,51-.
