S. pafc-nl mi his iin-'  proved machine for filling salmon into  cans.  This invention lias been exploited  by a sin,ill syndicate of lending Vancouver business men,'iind has in le-  cent trial.- coiifirincel its previously  established reputation for rapid and  satisfactory woik. Lust year il put  up, in practical cannery service, 22W)  eases ol" fish, and this- year a simplified  and improved machine was built, hut  unfortunately was complete-el too laic-  for the tea son's pack. Several (rinl  runs have however been made, before  representative canncis, in which an  output of 7(5 cans a minute was  altained, 00 to 0(5 per cent of which'  were well f i.i led.  Hitlic to machine filling has. been  so imperfect, and the fish so damaged  and crushed, that careful packing has  to be advcitiscd as "hand filled." Jt  is' claimed for the Brown machine  however that the work is better clone  than it can be done by hand; the cans  being more evenly filled, witli (he skin  to the outer side, and n clean fresh cut  surface exposed. When such packing  can be done, machine filling should be  a favorable advertisement rather than  otherwise, as the minute handling is  dispensed wilh. a fact which the con-  suini-r will surely appreciate.  Tlii-* machine has been m-tnufac-  liiral by the !-*h;i:ike machine works at  New WoMiuiiistr:, which is a gunian-  tee of caicful design and wuiknian.'ship  Good News From the  Mines. ���������.

Regarding the JSva trouble^  interview with the Gazette""  Jioscnberger said :' .  , ''The first point lo which [  exception, is the charge that I tried  to bold up the copper country  underwriters at tho time they visited the Eva and met me in .Nelson  to close thccoiilract which they had  tinderfakon.- The, proposition containing the terms upon which tlie  Eva properly was to bo taken over  was submitted to the underwriters  byjjme in Hancock on Sept. 2!), and  was accepted by them. ������ It involved  tho, purchase of tho property for  -t2o0,000,.and also ' involved the  .meeting of.monetary obligation on  October 22v and on November 11.  As  ������ r    *  ' A.jjo.xn.oi-'" C'ooi) r.\iTi;  on my part* I agreed to' \)iiy the  entire expense- of one man who  might be selected to visit the mine  and who would discover that J "had  misrepresented the conditions in  anyway. jS'o demand was made  at any lime ''upon' mo for the payment of this expense, notwithstanding the fact that almost the entire  body of underwriter.-! visited the  property. I take it, therefore, they  are satisfied the property is entirely  as [ cliiimcd'it lo be.  "The proposition* as accepted'on  September 20 was never altered" in  any way.*'     '  ' ,  /I'JIj; THICK THAT ������������������*AII,K������.  ���������  Jt is now an open    secret,   bow-  ever,   thai  the underwriters bad  reached a determination before  leaving here on October 20 lo reject  the proposition,.but lo reject it at  such a late date as lo jeopardize  the interests of the flotation. 'As  before'slatcd', a payment was due  on October 22. This payment was  made by the C. it 13.' C.''about  October 22. ��������� Another payment  matures November 22, next' Saturday, and it was the plan *of the  copper country underwriters to  crush "the company on that payment by refusing to turn over the  funds which had been subscribed  here on the Eva deal. J3y so doing  tho bond would be . forfeited" and  the iiojjuo'"was'"cntertiiir)'od ��������� Ly Lhe  copper country -people that thoy  would thus be able to acquire the  property independent of my  associates and myself. !"  A r.Oflfs "CXCUSE.     ,  "It has been asserted thai sufli-  cienl lime was not allowed lo investigate the property. On tlie  day T left here, September 29,  immediately after the acceptance  of the proposition'. 1 was authorized  to pay #20,000 cash to the Imperial,  Development Syndic.it3 for 20,000  -"���������li-ircs of the underwritten stock.

' Wc went to the  expense of undermining the SO-fecf  winze in No. 8 tunnel and everything in our power 'was "done to  assist him in making a thorough  examination. Mr. Daniels visited  Camborne and the Camborne group,  but for some reason unknown to  me did not, visit the Eva.

The   Colonist   says   of the 'new  ministry :    "The Prior government  is   without exception, the strongest  ., which' has ever   held   the   reins of  power in British Columbia."  II. Helmcken M. P., puts the  political position fin a' nutshell  when he says : "A, great effort  should be made to agree upon some  line of policy and petty paity  bickering should be, subordinated  to the crying needs of thecountrv."  The Home government is to be  congratulated on its resolve to give  fair and impartial consideration  to the Irish question, and the good  sense of the Irish members is displayed in their acceptance of the  proposal in the spirit in, which it is  made.  We congratulate the Victoria  Times, one of the most bitter opposition papers in the province, on  its announced wish to give the  Prior ministry a 'fair show. Our  contemporary says the only fair  "course is to suspend - judgment  pending an announcement of the  government policy and that it is  unreasonable to condemn the new  administration as vet.  THE NEW'MINISTRY.  The new ministry which has been  formed under lion. Col.   Prior   as  premier is one   which   ought torbe  favorably received by the country.  It  is , doubtful   whether   a be,  combination of capable men  c  be formed from the, present ho  In the premier   the   province   has  one who has had   wide experience  in Dominion politics, and  his  advent to power ought to be particularly gratifying to those interested  in mining, as Hon. Col. Prior   is  a  practical mining engineer by training and ^profession,   and   recently  travelled through the mining camps  with a view lo ascertaining the views  of both mine-owners and  employes  as to the best means of putting ,the  industry   on   a   progressive basis.  Hon. D.  M.   Kberts,   Ihe attorney-  general,   is   one ,of   the   most experienced public men in.- the   province,   having, got    his    training  under Hon. J. H. Turner.    Hon.-J.  J). Prentice has proved one of  the  most, capable   financial ministers  the province has bad. - 'His financial statement of lasl session was3 a  masterpiece and a leading  English  financial   paper,     the     Financial  Times, compared it, in ability   and  arrangement, as on a par  with the  statements of Goscben, on'c of ,tbe  ablest public financiers .the mother  country has known.    The province  has never had a better Chief  Commissioner  of    Lands   and   Works  than Hon. W. C.   Wells.     To   his  administration  Revelstoke owes its  prosperity today and what  he   has  done for Revelstoke be has done or  will   do   for   other   parts   of   the  province   as'  soon   as   he has  the  opportunity and ('he   funds   available for the  policy   of   progress of  .which he  is , a   known   advocate.  The two new men   who   join   the  ministry are Hons1. Dennis Murphy  and \Y. W.   P.   McTnncs. '   These  gentlemen   are   native sons of.the  province and their selection should  be a cause of pride to young P>rilish  Columbians   to   whom   thev   will  doubtless   do    full   credit.       'Mr.  Murphy is said'by   all   who know  him to be a   clever,   shrewd, man,  and his speeches in the   house, last  session showed him to be one oi the  smartest members   of   ihe   house.  lioni-1   W.

One   of    the    most    important  questions with  which  British   Columbia   is   face to   face   is that of  finding a profitable market  for the  output of   the( silver-lead   mines.  Two remedies have been suggested.  One is an increase of duty on ' im-1  ports of lead and   the   products of  the metal.     The   other, is  the removal of all duties from machinery  and materials used in mining.    The  former proposal would be all' right  if Canada could  consume   all   the  lead-this province can produce.,  If  the home market is not sufficiently  wide then the proposal is fallacious  as there could lie no possible home  market for the surplus  production.  Wo   have,   in   previous     articlcs;  shown 'that the consumption of lead  in Camilla is a small proportion of  tlie total production of the country,  and in such a case it is   evident   a  protective tariff would be valueless.  A������market must be   found   for   the  remainder���������in this case the greater  part, and we have   suggested   that  in such a case the only, solution of  the difficulty is to be found  in   removing all   duties   on   machinery  and'mine   supplies to   enable   the  mine-owner to produce lead'at such  a cost that it can compete   in,   the  markets of the world.     The  views  set forth by  us are endorsed by no  less an authority than J.'E.  Hard-  man   M. 'E.,   the eminent mining  and consulting engineer,  of  Mont-  rea1. ,  Pie took the annual report of the  minister of mines in British Columbia' for the year "1900 arid  quoted figures showing (he production of lead was 63,358,621 lbs. -lie  then took the trade and navigation  returns for the same year, and  going'through tlie whole of the  manufactured "lead products purchased���������totalled up everything  that could be placed to the credit  of lead, either in its metallic form  or in paints,' dry red and ,white  lead, and "showed,the total 'was only  25.298.278 pounds.  It was,a.market for-' 25,000,000  pounds" in round figures for a pro':,  duel ion of 03,000,000���������and' it left  .',8,000,000 to be disposed of clse-  vthero after every industry that  used lead in any form ha'd been  supplied. The condition'was not  even so favorable as ihe figure  cited would seem to indicate, for the  manufactured products embraced  by the 25,000.000 pounds were not  all lead.- About 5,000,000 pounds  had to' he given up to zinc and  gypsum and other thing- that were  A POPULAR BELIEF.  That Rheumatism Is Due To Cold,  Wet Weather.  Such     Condition-.     Aggravate     the  Trouble, But it is "Now Known  to be a Disease of the Blood  ���������Outward Applications  Cannot Cure It.  The once popular belief that rheumatism was entirely the result of exposure to cold or dampness, is now known  to be a mistake.   The disease may  he  aggravated by exposure, but the   root  of   the trouble lies in the   blood,   and  must   be   treated  through  it.    Liniments and outward applications never  cure,   while Dr. Williams' l'inlc   Tills  always   cure because they make   new,  rich, red blood, in which disease   finds  lodgement    impossible.     Concerning  the   use of these pills Mr. A. G., Lac-  onibe,   Sorel,   Que.,   says:���������"For   upwards of five years J   was a victim"  of  the tortures of rheumatism.   AL times  tlie pains in my knees,   shoulders unci  hips were almost, past endurance.    At  other times J coukPnob   dress   myself  without' assistance,    f    tried   several  remedies,   some very  costly,   without  getting' any more temporary relief   nt  the   most.' At this juncture a   friend  urged nic   to try Dr.   Williams'   Pink  l'i'lls   and spoke so highly of the   pills  that  1 decided lo try   them.   Almost  from   the very first these pills helped  me and by the time I had taken seven  or eight boxes, every twinge   of   rheu-  'matism   had' disappeared an'dT   was  feeling bettcr'than J had for years.   J'  would strongly advise similar sufVcrers  to give. J)r. Williams' Pink  Pills a fair  trial, as I am confident that they   will  not only drive away all the   pains iind  aches, 'but,leave you   strong,    active,  and happy."   , '"  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills arc the  greatest tonic medicine in-the world.  These pills not only cure ..rheumatism,  but all troubles whose origin ^ conies  from poor blood or weak nerves', such  as anemia, consumption; neuralgia,  kidney trouble.

Execution of Rose.
New-ox, B. C, Nov. 21.���Rose
was executed today. He slept well
last night and ate a hearty breakfast this morning. '' He displayed
great nerve and coolness to the end.
He was hanged at 8 o'clock by the
ollicial executioner, Radcliff. His
neck .-was broken, and death was
practically instaneous. All life
was pronounced extinct by the goal
physician in 13i minutes after the
drop. The body'was buried in the
jail yard. The jury and 35, spectators were ,present. Rose was
convicted on circumstantial' evidence.
He��pigned a 'document shortly
before the execution strongly maintaining his innocence in it. He
forgave all who .had helped to convict him, and said he would die at
peace with the world,and in,-sure
hope of a glorious resurrection.
He was attended by Rev. Father
Althoff, of the Roman Catholic
church.'    , "
The following was Rose's written
���   "I die   willingly,'   because   it  is
Clod's will.'  I have made my peace
with Him.   , My innocence may be,
, J pray God, proved some day.   For
all that,' 1 forgive those who are the
cause of my being here.    If I have
offended anyone, I beg forgiveness.
, 1 bid good-bye to all.   I would like"
��� jto say more, but make it short, be-
' cause it is' bard to me to stand here
longer.    J thank all who have been
kind to me in my last days."
Rose was 64 years ofjige.      The
Tribune savs the   estate   of Rose's
father was worth !}>o0,000 and   that
when the1"'lawyers   wrote   him'regarding, his ��� share , heJ refused it,
" asking that   it   be   distributed between his brothers and   sisters,   as'
' be   then   considered himself worth
, $30,000, on account of bis   interest
in the Delaware Mining Company
of which  he 'was   manager.      His
coming to B. C. was in a   measure
due to the death of his young wife
who died in   child ' birth' about a
year after his marriage.
In speaking of the disposition ��� of
' Rose, as evidenced since his confinement, the warden of the jail
said of him last evening that Rose
was one of the best prisoners he had
ever had in the jail. When Rose
was first rCceived the officials of the
institution received a number of
' warnings from ��� the outside," to the
effect that Rose., was a- very des,-,
pernio man, and'that he would not
stop at anything to attain his ends
or secure ,his liberty, but at no
period during bis imprisonment
was there the slightest indication
that'Rose was inclined' to give
trouble. . . ,
Since   his   sentence ��� the greater
csporlion of his evenings were   spent
in playing whist and euchre   with
the men on the' death watch   and
the. prison ofiicials.     On tlie night
prior to his execution Rose   played
cards much longer than usual, and
, it was 2 o'clock on.the morning set
for   his-   execution   when   his last
game   was,   finished,   and the condemned   man   sought   his    bunk.
Those   who took   part in the game
say Rose was   the   most  composed
'man of the party.
Gold Commissioner Eraser's Return From the South.
Fred. Fraser, Gold Commissioner,
returned from a trip over the
southern part of his riding on
Saturday. He brings the cheering
news that he found everywhere,
air of prosperity and progrei
he found the Triune and Silver Cup
mines have been equipped with
aerial tramways. A good road has
been built for a length of a mile
and three quarters'to connect the
former road with the terminal of
the Triune tramway. , These improvements will enable the Cup
and Triune' to ship $80 ore at a
profit, the cost of transportation
having "'hitherto prevented anything less than $100 ore from being
handled profitably. . , <���
is required between Trout Lake
and the mine tramways to enable
the mines to be'worked to the���best
advantage by which large bodies
of low-grade ore at both mines
could be shipped at a profit and a
larger margin of profit secured on
the higher grade ore. If the C.P.R.
do not propose to put in a spur
from Trout Lake the mine-owners
will probably organize a company
to utilise the magnificent 'water
power of the Lardo river for running an ' -' - |    -
between Trout Lake and Ferguson,
with extensions up the South Fork
to lake'in the -Nettie' L., /Triune,
Silver Cup'atnd other properties. ,
A Successful Blast.
The Dominion government river
improvement work is proceeding
merrily at Rocky Point. 35 miles
north of Revelstoke. Hundreds of
boulders that obstructed navigation
have been blown to pieces. ��� A
shaft 15 feet cleep below water level,
100 feet from the east shore, was
sunk in a solid reef of rock?, and
24 feet of drifts run from' the bottom
of the shaft.
This work was completed under
considerable difficulty. ' a? three
galls, of water per.minute had' lo be
gotten out. "���17u0.1bs. of dynamite
was thawed in a hot-house and [
stored in the drifts. An electric
battery was connected with the
powder, and the shaft flooded with
The result was up to expectations.
Over 2000 yds. of-solid rock was
torn from its bed and thrown in
every direction.' Trees over a fool
in diameter were cut clean off and
tons of rock .scattered along the
mountain 'side far above the trail.  "
Gus lledstrom has a,--ang' of 10
men who know their business, and
under his able management'. the
government is getting big value for
the money expended. Jn a river
where so much 'work is"required lo
bo done to make navigation safe,
the sum (of $5000 appropriated
should be supplemented with an
additional grant''of $10,000'for the
winter's work,    j
