W, Ilaskins. There were about SO present anil  the proceedings were orderly throughout.  rv  Mr.   O.   Jf.   Allen*  was  appointed  chairman, and in  a very ne**.t speech  introduced tlie subject which they had  met to discuss.   JJe said he was for the  whole country and not for one party  only.    He was not much of a politician,  ������������������but was anxious in see the country go j  ahead and all do well. c Whether it was |  doing as well as it might was a question  for them to decide.    He called on  3fr.  Haskins to speak.  3Ir. J. W. Ha&kins commenced by  saying he was not now a candidate for  legislative honors, 'having withdrawn  in favor of Mr.  W. M.   Brown.    He  then went exhaustively Wo the  silver  question,   showing .how,   if our   own  mines   were   worked,'   enouglr money  would be iu circulation to keep all in  comfort, whereas we Avere now pajTiug  other nations to do ivh.it we ought to do  ourselves.   Thei e were one  billion .six  hundred and sixty million inhabitants  in the world.'of uhoni 20 per cent.' do  all the work; llcper cent, are farmeis,  0 jicr cent.t miners, and the remainder  .parasites.^   Canada ' was   behind" the  'times to-day on account of bad laws.  Twenty thousand tons of lead "come ih  annually 'to   Montreal   from 'Mexico,  paying a duty of if8 a ton, when, if -we  worked our own  ores,-we should not  only save th,iit,   but find employment  for our population.   Souio of our mines  produced no higher grade ore' than 50  per   cent,   lead and 50 o;:a. silver, and  that Avas   now   unsaleable, -'.while   if  worked   at 'home it^would .pay  well.-"  The,plain duty of a member was to get'  smelters built'. - I'rails arc all vely well]  but   we   mrisL ha\vmoie than th.it'i!?i  /develop the country.. it would take 2if  of ��������� our   average   mines Jto produce al'  much lead as we now import, ai.cTthej1  would have to M-or-k every d.-,y in  the',  year  and   turn ont &ewn 'to.is daily.  Another necessity was t.i have a miuC  in   Canada.   Tue   present practice,oj  sending our silver and gold to"England  to be coined was a bad one, as we did  not get the value retm nod to  us.   AU  these things combined to make our best  men leave  Canada."   Trie Government  could not or would not see what was  wrong; and goodjneu had to leave the  country to get a living, which was 'denied them hereon account of the misrule that prevailed, and till'we worked  our own ores and smelted them on our  own   ground  such 'would be the case.  The Pilot Bay smelter was an example  ot tho way in which our -native indus-  tiv   was   crushed'   by bad legislation.  There   wercv no   mines iu the,.' United  States that could compare in  richness  or   quantity   with   the Slocan mines.  The Comstock mine averaged only ,$S  per ton to work, aud. was ireo-nifiling  silver and gold ore. ai id that paid enormous   dividends.    The   Slocan'and  Lardeau ores were different, and must  be smelted here or .will  be practically  valueless.    The   sum   of   ,S8S,000  was  granted for West Kootenay, but if we  worked our,own mines-a'nd smelters  we   could   have   an  income for West  Kootenay exceeding that of the whole  province.    Not only did  Canada''hold  mineral we ilthl  but for fisheries and  forests she could equal ,r!n\- country in  the world; while her wheat production  exceeds tb.it of all Europe.   The population of Canada was but six million,  while   there   should   be   ten tunes as  many, andqvould be if our statesmen  attempt1 ed to develop  the country instead   ot   simply looking- alter   their  own interests. The next election would  see a gi eat, change, and our good men  would be'induced to stay heie rather  than quit the country, as they did now.  Tt had been said  that $2 were appropriated  for   every   $1   earned in this  country, buttbatstatement was utterly  f,ib-e.    What wo really got was SO cents'  for   each   doll.u    earned.-   .More   than  .y 17,000 was paid last year for miners'  certificates  aloii",   and  now��������� we were  given .$"10,000 only,   and   that was for  trails instead of for good wagon-roads.  Some people thought a   trail required  no   looking   alter,    but    the   speaker  wondered how the C. P. JI. would look  if it was neglected for one1  we������k  only.  Air. Jiaskms then   read  a letter from  -Mr.  Abbott,   of the  ('. P. P., who declined to support his   candid,aiuc,  as  his interest was piomised elsewhere,  and   then   proceeded   to  con ti a diet a  statement made by Mr. Jvellio referring  to the Trout Lake trail, naming Messrs.  Hoi ton and  JDoivns as witnesses.    Mr.  Uaskius concluded a most able speech  bjfe. announcing   lui-l-i-nnination to  l esign in favor of Mr.   W.  M.  Prown,  and   took   his   'eat amidst prolonged  ������pnlau=e.  The Chairman then, in a few well  chosen remarks, called on Mr. W. M.  Urown to addie-,s the meeting.  W. M.

Game's   Creek,   einptying   into   the  Columbia River about 30 miles north  of Revelstoke, is the first of the famous  gold creeks crossed by the trail leading  to the Big Bend gold country.   The  The Big Bend of the Columbia is , that  portion of the river lying noi th of the  Canadian Pacific Railway which crosses  the Selkirk mountains from Donald to  Revelstoke,the river forming two sides  of a   nearly perfect triangle with  the !  railway as its base, Canoe River being   ������>nu}' months,  at the northern apex. "������<.i "���������-���������-       ���������-  Gold    abounds    in' nearly   all   the  creeks flowing into the Columbia in this  bend or triangle.but the bestfinds have  been made on creeks* flowing into the  big river on the western 'leg of the  triangle, where it is flowing southward  after doubling back on itself from the  sharp   turn   at  Canoe'River.     Chief  among these tributaries is Gold Stream,  so called from theffact that some two  or three million dollars worth of gold  nuggets and coarse grains were taken  out  in   the boom (lays of '03 and '00.,  At the present time French and Mc-  Cnlloch Creeks, both flowing'into Gold  Streain,are being,profitably worked by  several small  companies, notably' tho  Consolation-* and 'Vaiidall' claims ".on'  French creek, the former claim averag-'  ing about $1100 a month for each man  employed for the last ten months.     ,  'dime's Creek derives its name from  a miner named'Carnp,  a, Oornishman,  who is reported to have  taken out ������,  lot of money, variously.st.ited to have  been all the way from .$1300' to $13,000  from ,the^ first half-mile of   tho creek  from its confluence'with the Columbia.  Messrs. Terryberry and' Peterson, old-  timer=.,' say Game worked below 'the  can j on.    Mr. Haskins, who is well up  in mining history, states  that Game  never worked below  the canyon, but  took out all his money from a natural  basin in  tlie creek ahove the canyon.  Mr.  Ruse,  who was  working in1 the I  ; Bend all through the exciting days  of  '05 and '00, and has followed it up to  the���������preseiif time/says Game sold out  to a man who came here i'ro'm Seattle  at the  ;,ime that "young ooy was des-  ,trbyeirby file.    If Mr. -Ruse gis correct  Cai nc.could not have been one of the  "old-timers" of 'CO,as it cannot be more  than   seven   or 'eight years ago that  Seattle was wiped out.   Be this as it  may, Mr. Game must have been an ex-  'ceedingly unobtrusive worker, as nothing is known of his coming or going.  It was in 1S07 that the  "Forty-nine"  Company,   who   owned0the first and  only steamboat that ever went up the,  ColumbiaRiveras far as Death Rapids,  grub-s������aked   a   party   of 'four miners  working  iu  Carne's Creek some   distance-- above   the   canyon.   The   boat  .came from the State of  Washington  and took up supplies -fto the thousands  of miners then working placer mines  on the various creeks north of Carrie's,1  and  the  company built a very( good  landing place at La Porte. The "Forty-  nine" was wrecked by striking a rock  while  the   captain   was   below and a  greenhorn   at   the   wheel.   The .mate  was named Pinkerton or Pinkston.and  spent considerable money inu developing the claim in Carne's Creek alter the  steamboat   company ' had   withdrawn!  their interest.   A1 shaft was sunk to a  depth of 45 feet and on reaching  bod-  rock a nugget" worth  $2S was picked  up.   This was about all that was found  and soon after the claim was abandoned  In'ISSS a company, of twelve   was  formed in   Revelstoke,   consisting   of  Oliver Redpath, F. B. AVells, P. R.Pet-  ersnn, Gus Lund, Sjiro.it and others, to  work this claim, which was then  named the "Rip Van   Winkle."   They put  up a water-wheel and other appliances  at a cost of about $ 1,000,  and pumped  out the water from the shaft sunk  by  Pinkerton's   men.   Y Tliey   found   tho  limbering  in  excellent condition and  levels at the bottom driven on the bedr  rock.   Some. j).iy was found, but owing  to a disagreement some of the men  quit the place and' others dried out of  the coinjsaiiy.    Peterson   then bought  out the two remaining partners,Sproat  and Lund,   and carried   on   the  work  alone.   He say-, he was beginning to do  well and would have continued, "hut a  siiow-.lide   carried   away   the   houses,  water-wheel and flume, and he,too, was  comjielled to give uj..   He still expresses the strong belief that great quantities of gold will   he found on the bed-  lock in the ch ifts at the   bottom of the  shaft.  Pinkerton was captain of the steamer  Kootenay as late as 1S93, and was ac-  c-ulentlv shot in the knee, from the effects of which he died.  Messrs D. Uobinson and M.D.uid.  of h'evelsfokc, have recently staked  the claim and will put on men" to bring  iic "property into good shape, a quantity of material and appliances lor this  purpose having been already sent up,  'flu's chum is included in 'tlu> lease  granted to the Ci rue's Creek Mining  company.  There'aie other shafls on (he creek,  but on account ol meeting with a quicksand in on" ol them, Geo. Lifornie  and pai luei-N .-.[."in - onsidercble iiionev  and la bin1 on one .it tlie-o claims before  indouing it. This claim has iccciitly  jMi-.   JiYea  Robinson  of Toronto, and will be worked this  summer in conjunction with two adjoining claims, the whole being leased  by the Carne's Creek Mining Co.  The canyon itself was ilumed by Geo.  Terryberry and six others some five  or six years ago.    Tliey had just struck  pay   and   were    taking    out    $14    a  day a man when their flume was<wa.sh-  ed out.   The flume was 480 feet long  and the  bad season  was coming ou.  They became disheartened at the prospect,,  as by the time the rejiaii-s were  completed fhe high water would necessitate the stoppage of all work foi1  They '"never returned,  until this spring,,when Geo.Terryberry  went up and re-staked the claim for  himself and   Robert  Iiowson.     They  are now working four men in the head  of the canyon and have taken up a derrick for lifting out > boulders.     They  will flume the creek and work the bed,  where experienced   prospectors   state  tliat a great deal of gold will be found.  This is close to where Carne took out  his pile.   This claim is includecl in  the  2J miles leased 'to  tho Game's Creek  Mining Co., which is prepared to spend  several thousand dollars in developing  the property,    ft is expected that Mr.  Terryberry r will bring gold with-him  on his next trip'' to Revelstoke, as he  had met with considerable grains in  preparation  work of making a trench'  alongside the creek.

Ho paid a visit to the  Kettle river valley last summer, mainly  for his health'and became so favorably  impressed with'the'country thirV he  concluded to return 5tlris (year and go  into business there. He took but  naturalization papers-last fall before  going" east1 and took nip some landtat  the forks of Kettle river, adjoining h'is  brother's property. He will put up  buildings, a home first, and then a general merchandise store.   ' "���������     .  He says:��������� "For, the present I shall  buy my goods 'iu Spokane, although  eventually, I 'shall be driven hy the  duty to buy in eastern Canada. The'  average duty on a'stock of general  merchandise is about 30 per cent., but  even if 1 bought in Toronto 1 should  still ship in bond via Spokane.

" *  ' "Boundary mountain is fairly covered with mines and prospects, and lately a strong English syndicate has taken  hold of one or two of the best properties, paying big sums for tirom. This  is the first investment made in the district hy capitalists, and 1 expect to see  others follow this summer.  "Besides mining there is a considerable slockraising business in the valley.  There has been little grain raised in  the past, but there is a large area of  good    agricultural    lands,    including  As hop-growing is"likely to become  a leading industry of this piovince the,  following advice   from, the    Western  HWciVill probably bo of great use to  those of our renders who may l)e about <  to    giow    hops  for., export fto ��������� the'  British market.    Pight herein Rovel-'1'  stoke hops grow in most laxuii.uitpro-  a  fusion, and a profitable business awaits *  anyone  who- knows   how  to   handle  them:    ���������"'     t "' , ���������  The shijiments of "British   Columbia  ������-  hops to England during the jiast season  have proved very satisfactory. Messrs.  Norman & Co.,1 a leading produce firm   "  in London, say that subject to'their  flavor, which is similar to East-Kents.  being maintained, they are to bo pre-,  ferred to any that are imported and  would   carry   all   before, them.     The    "  maintenance of  this quality is of tho   '  utmost importance to the hop industry     "  oi tne Pacific Province and on ifsbein^ -  successfully kcjjt uji demands tho future  of the trade.   Methods of cultivation",.,  are, of course, of-considerable impor-    l"  tance, but the chief thing is the drying' . *  ot the hops after tliev are picked.   First  111 importance is  the construction of  suitable kilne or roast houses, then the     ��������� ^  employment    of   experienced,, drybrs.   -'  J ncompef out dryers, may at tl ie outset,,,  grye British Columbia hops a bad name ,������  in. J^ngland from \which it will- take '���������  them years to recover, and the editor,!   ��������� "*  Who   spent-lile-aiu'ly    at.j-c._n-,  |ho hon  districts   of, Herefordshire and Kent,"   "~"  and who knows whereof he speaks on '  this matter, would urge the importation of dryers, if necessary,1 from England.   British 'Columbia 'hop growers  will make a great mistake if they go ft  south of the International'Boundary  for points on hop drying.    California  hops, as is well known,   have an un.sa-  tisiactory flavor,  as they   cannot   be  brewed alone, .but have to be  blended  with other growths.   There  is every  reason to believe that British Columbia  can produce hops of satisfactory flavor, .  which should fetch much larger* prices  in England than Calitoruians.    .  If the editor of fhe Western, 'World  can be of any assistance to B.C. hop  growers "in this connection, he will* be  most happy to give them his services  and to put'- them inf communication  with leading growers in England wiio  could select dryers for them.

Tiir mf-r is very Irish for this time
of'the year, the weather is "very hot,
and we may cxp.jcc to see the highest
�� of  hiph water  marks  covered   it th��
heat contniuPs two days longer.    'J'ho
rising'of t-1^.' river itself may not effect,
any verj' greai damage m this yicinity,
'but   the big  ru<-L  of  water from fhe
jnountain north of the town is Hooding
'.the level ^and around ;Jie Methodist
church and sc.hoolhouse.    This   would
be,of very small importance in itself,
^Diit the damage yet> to be done hy this.
..water will be seen in a week or so in
the Luge slices oithe bank which will
be undermined and carried  into  tlis j ���*
'.river.    The way it is done is this : The
K^wnter overflowing .tins area can find no
'outhpi, so it percolates through the soil
until "at "a 'depth   of  30 or 30 feet it
finds   the  pebbly bed of  the  ancient
.lake on which Revelstoke stands.    On
xlris bed  it finds its way to the river,
bursting through the high eandy bank
And literallyo carrying it away on  its
'���hack.    If "this water were channelled
from the point where it passes under
'the track just below' the breweiy no
further damage to the river bank vould
accrue, as it is���not the high water in
the Columbia  that  has  hollowed out
'.tho basin just ^opposite the s.ehoo]house.
jThafcjshas -been  done  by  tire ground
Vvater,, as we have stated above.   More-
, over, this surface .water becom'e.s' stag"
aiant iii sapVo places, and alibids a
breeding-place for, mosquitoes and a
.source of danger to health fiom malarial fever.' ' The citizens should move
in this matter, and at once. The Dominion' Oovernraent should bo made
acquainted with the facts, through Mr.
. 'Mara, and no more-time should be lost
' -in getting this'evil remedied. Some
excellent work has already been done
towards making a channel for this
sti cam near Mr. Sibbald's store and
'the 'Union tldtel,, but tins will not
:',pbviate the erosion of -the river bank
���half a mile further north'. ' ]l would
pay "i>p,0 Citozcns to collect funds and
'do the work themselves. Mr. Tapping
.offev.e.4 ,',o do, tho work 'some' month-,
ago   for' $100.    But "pioh.rbly, twice
, tliat amount would bq needed now.

True, the compilation and elaboration
of tho statistics was a work of considerable labor and painstaking, but ] do
not, dmibt it might havo been committed to'more competent hands.
The statement made m the communication lcferrod to, that each person in the Province paid is Lii in customs duties in 189.5; and" that fhe bum
exceeded the average per capita for the
entire Dominion by !*>S.'J.'3, is true as
applied to tlie entire-, population, including Indians. An estimate, how-
e\or, based on the while inhabitants,
shows ft pavment in excess of 1^2 for
each person, 'pie amount paid into
