His awkward predicament secured for  him the sympathy of the proprietor of the Madden House, and he received every attention.  When he had sufficiently recovered topermit  removal his father, in Spokane, was acquainted  with the facts, but he replied that he could not  aid him. Rev. T. H. Rogers then started round  with the hat and secured $32.50 worth of practical sympathy which was to send the invalid  to the Spokane hospital.  The  brother's  offer of assistance renders  the  :penditnr^ nf +Mo *-   U "A YEAK  exDenditnrA ������f /^"    ���������     <wsfi,ISLance renders  the   ^^ ^rct,A*iv ui xu.onrreal.  Would it hot be a good thing to leave it I here  until all Galbraith's obligations have been^dis-  charged. If those who have entailed expenses  on the invalid's account have such . amounts  made good to them, then it. would be fitting to  subscribe the amount as a starter for the Nelson  hospital fund.  There is every reason to believe that Nelson  will have.a theatre in the near futere, and one  which in point of architecture will do credit  to the leading city of West Kootenay.  The scheme has gone beyond the talking  stage and all that is required to ensure the theatre's erection is the government license.

The Upper Kootenay river has opened at last  and   the O. & K. navigation company  decided  to dispatch the   steamer   Nelson   to  Bonner's  Slock! " \SouveninR: The ^e]s"u 6ail?ai se-������  The contemplated action  of Insurance  Cona-  panies in cancelling policies  in   Nelson, caused  by the,inadequate water supply, makes the dis-  gracefur condition of the waterworks a question  of serious interest to property-owning citizens.  Numerous policies have been effected  at favorable rates because of  the constant and   efficient  water supply.    But  now  that that supply has  broken down, not only during-the severe weather and immediately aftei*  it, but up to the present time, when there are no climatic conditio>i.s  to interfere, the Insurance Companies have been  obliged  to  take  steps   to   protect themselves.  The question has been raised, how far the water  company is liable.    ������47 of their charter provides  that, "The. Company shall, at" the request of the ,  Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works, phiee  proper hydrants  in   the main   and  other pipes .  belonging to them, at such convenient distances  (not being more than one  hundred  yards  from,  each other) and at such  places as may   be  most'  proper and convenient for  the supply of  water  for extinguishing  any  tires   which   may break  out in   the  said  town   of   Nelson."     And  this  would seem to imply that  the  public  have an  interest vested in the present hydrants, and the  consequences  to  the  water  company might be  serious in the event of a tire's becoming dangerous  through   their   culpable negligence  in  not  having the system kept in lepair.  But ������43 reads as follows:���������  "The construction of the said   works shall   be  "commenced within two years, and be completed  "(except as to the laying of additional pipes and  "mains) to the Government townsite of Nei^on  "within four years from the passing of this Act"  And as the date  of the  Act   is 23rd. of April  1892, it is difficult to see how  the  company can  be responsible for any act   of  negligence   when  they are not bound  to do anything at all   before  April 23rd. 1891.  In what has this water-works scheme resulted?  The securing by outside capitalists, whose real  interest in ihe place is small, of a valuable privilege is the result.    And it is a privilege  which'  apparently carries with it the   minimum of advantage to Nelson and the  maximum   to  those"1"  who  compose  the   company.    What   will  this  charter be worth in-four years from the time it  was granted?   And for four years the company  are apparently not  bound  to provide  a water  supply to the town, or to  maintain   the  supply  as already provided.  But there is one point of view from which the  matter may be looked at. To provide the town  with water is and must be a most lucrative investment. And if the present company are net  prepared to complete and maintain their system  it will not:be bard to organize another company  which will.

It is  now  more   than   a  year  ago since  at a  ^itizens' meeting a committee was appointed to  ���������*incorpor__te   a   hospital   at   Nelson.      At    that  meeting over  $1700  was  subscribed���������on paper.  The town is now asked   to  contribute  $1500 to  secure the immediate erection of  a hospital and  the use of the  Government's  liberal  appropriation.    Steps should ai  once be taken, to  collect  this money.    Nelson is  not only the  most suitable place for a hospital, being as it is the center  and distributing point for the whole district and  the point where competent professional services  are most easily to be obtained; but the  hospital  willalso.be  a   most   excellent   investment   for  Nelson.    As a  simple  business  matter  the  ci _-���������������������������,  izens should  subscribe  Jibt rally.    The  hospital  will add a fine property   to  Nelson���������a property  which will pay very  handsome dividends to the  town on $1500, and   the citizens should miss no  opportunity to  support  any   institution   which  goes to clinch the central position and usefulness  of Nelson.    Let there be   no   hint   this  time  of  co-operation with  the Lake country.    The-hospital while benefiting the whole district   will be  of peculiar benefit to Nelson, and if the citizens  cannot see this to the extent of $1500, then the  hospital will not  be built, and Nelson  does  not  deserve to have it.  KOOTENAY IS ALL RIGHT.*  In nine cases out of ten your optimist is the  pleasantest fellow to chat with. If you hear  hiin things are always going to turn up trumps,  but after all when your tenth man. when your  pessimist turns round, and yielding to facts,  admits that things look hopeful, it is worth the  other nine.  Today even the pessimists admit that Kootenay has a near future before it, such as even  the most sanguine optimists dared not have  predicted a year ago. The contract for the  construction of the Nelson and Fort Sheppard  line has practically been let, and in the words of  the most conservative financier of British Columbia, the fact that D. C. Corbin has undertaken this contract is the best guaranteee of the  prospects of Kootenay which any man could  desire.  Though an American, Corbin is no rash speculator, but a man who has built lines before,  and invariably at a profit to himself and to those  he represented. He is said, by those who know  him, to be a most careful and conservative business man, one who will not put a dollar into a  country in the way of a railway work, unless he  sees that he is going to get three dollars out for  the one he put in.  This is good for Corbin no doubt, but it is  good also for Kootenay, as showing that a level  headed careful business man has convinced him  self beyond a doubt of the development and output of which the country is capable. By September of this year, the president of the Nelson  and Fort Sheppard railway predicts that the  line's locomotives will  be running into Nelson.  .   THOSE NEW BUILDINGS.  The MiNERdoes not, and never has believed that  the province could afford such a luxury as a set of  $600,000 lesislative buildings. The sense of the  province as a whole is against such extravagence  though ''the legislature was not.  Had the appropriation been for $2,000,000 the  legislature, with its present excessive Victorian  complexion, would have held up both hands for  it just the same. This will explain the majority  the Government secured on the division.  Although the Government hastenforced this  expenditure upon the people the Miner does  not believe that the country will go to the dogs.  British Columbia has too much wealth within  her borders to be affected materially by the expenditure involved in the new legislative buildings, but it does not excuse the extravagence.  This a new province and it would undoubtedly  have impressed the people with more confidence  in their representatives if those commissioned  with the provincial welfare had shown more of  a desire to proseeut e public works, and thus aid  the development of the provincey rather than by  squandering public money to shelter such gigantic intellects with a, building sufficiently showy  to satisify Victoria's tourist trade.  THE GAOL  AT KASLO.  The proposed location of the gaol at Kaslo has  not been pronounced the most suitable by the  representative of the Government. It is too far  away from the centre of the town. The school  site, on the other hand, is admirable. We can  not see that the Government has any cause to  complain. Kaslo was ignored when the necessary land might have been secured in a suitable  place. Now Kaslo is in a position to say to the  Government "You must take what you can get."  That is all. And with what it can get the Government will have to be satisfied.  CURRENT COMMENTS.  The Government has this year provided salaries for five ministers of the Crown. As there  are but four salaried posts in the cabinet this  may be used as a bail to keep the faltering ones  up to the line.  Premier Davie got the members of Victoria  up a very high tree with his bill for the new  $600,000 legislative buildings. It hoped that the  strain which Economist Beaven's feelings underwent, when he supported the bill, may not prove  serious.  Just through what course of reasoning our  own Mr. Kellie managed to arrive at the conclusion that it was advisable to spend $600,000  for capital buildings, is a problem he had better  get to work on right away. There might be  some people who would like to know.  If the Government decides to give the province redistribution, Westminster, city and  district, should be left alone. A few more members of such calibre as the present ones, with the  same fondness for^ talking about their Winchester repeaters, would tend to supply our readers  with more humorous matter than they could  stand.  W. C. Green, of Kingston, Ont., has located  a valuable vein of mica near Arden station,  from which he cut out a piece 10x12 inches. He  has refused $20,000 for his find.

The Anglo-American is the name of a'now  club or exchange 'which hao been lately estab-  lished in Victoria.  The men who have formed this club aimed at  creating a great exchange, such as in the old  days, under the name of the Denver clab, built  up the fortunes of Denver and Colorado. They  have realized that at last, the day of British  Columbia's prosperity is ai h.-mel, that the province is really breaking its shell at last, that its  present and ilspasi'are insignificant -compared  to .that era of prosperity I hat. is just dawning;1  and that it Is the duly of the men"of today to'  combine to help forward such movements as  the development of Kootenay, the encouragement of railways, the protection and extension  of our fisheries, and the publication to the world  in general that B. C. boasts of something nioi'e  than " grand and picturesque scenery."  The club has already arranged for an exchange  of   privileges   with   all   the  leading  Au'H^ricaii.  clubs, and   the   membership, has already passed  the respectable total of 260, and is growing with  ���������increasing rapidity every day. .  To show that West Kootenay has not been  forgotten it may be stated "that arrangements'  have been made for the exhibition of a cabinet  of specimens, in the smoking room. Owner's  of prospects, and mines, are requested to forward small specimens to the club secretary, or  through the Miner, each specimen to be accompanied with reliable statistics as to assay and  extent.  It would appear to be worth every mine  owner's while to comply with this request, and  to make the exhibit'of the ores of this section as  complete as possible, since scores of in'^r'ha'v'iiTg  money to invest would thereby have an opportunity of becoming interested. Kooteuay's  ores are well worthy of exhibition,   -  EXHIBITS Off THEIR WAY.  Tlic Ore Exhibits of -lie Province Ilsive SSccji Snipped  to the WorI������i\s Fair.

ALL ABOUT THAT  SMELTER  THEY AKE OHLY KTJMOES BUT THEEE MAT  BE MUCH TRUTH IN THEM.  Reasons are Advanced WMcIa May Explain Wliat  tlic Belay in Regard _o _!_e Pilot Kay Smelter  Construction Mean.���������Slave tine Promoters Taken  it Into Their Meads to Locate Here *?     There are many rumors  going  the   rounds at  present concerning that smelter at Pilot Bay,  and those who think they can put two and two  together have solved the smelter riddle in many  ways.  Some week or two ago one of our leading  merchants invented and spread a story to the  effect that it was the intention of the Kootenay  Lake Smelting and Refining Company to shut  down work at Pilot Bay and begin all over  at Bogus town.  There is certainly no want of coloring within  the realms of truth for these rumors.  The smelter is not in a good location at Pilot  Bay. In fact some people affirm that it would  be difficult to pick out a, place less favored by  locality.  Franklin Farrel is interested to a large extent  in the Pilot Bay smelter, and the same gentleman is also a large  shareholder  in   the Silver  King, The men who are pulling the strings of  the Nelson and Fort Sheppard Railroad own a  lot or two in Bogus town, arid would not be  very vexed if a smelter were to be erected there.  The smelter at Pilot Bay was to be one for the  treatment of galena ores.  There is every reason for believing that the  Silver King will be worked this summer. The  treating of this ore could not be attended to by  the Pilot Bay sm* Iter machinery.  Then there follows the stoppage of all work  on the Pilot Bay concern.  There is also a feeling abroad that Farrel has  something very much akin to a hobby for building smelters, and that the money spent at Pilot  Bay would not in the least deter him from putting up another with different machinery.  It would seem that the interests of the great  shareholders in both the Smelter Company and  the N. & F. S. Railroad would be well served if  the unexpected were to happen and truth once  again to prove stranger than fiiction.  One who should be on authority on the matter has recently been heard to state that the  Smelting Company had the matter under consideration and that it was not at all improbable  that such a course as has been suggested would  be followed.  Now when all these rumors are put into a hat  and shaken up, the fact is deduced by some that  the smelter is coming our way. What do you  think, eh?

The Mines are  reached by Trail from Lardeau, which is, naturally the distributing point for  supplies, and the shipping point for ore from these Kich Mining Fields.  Now on sale at the office of the.undersigned. The terms are reasonable,, and.there . is  every reason for stating that a handsome profit will be realized on all- lots purchased at  present prices. Arrangements have been made for the clearings of a portion of the  Townsite, for the erection of hotel and stores, and for various other improvements, so  that. Lardeau Giif will build up rapidly in the early spring/ Lardeau City is the  entrance point for the Lardeau Pass, which reaches through, to the head of Kootenay  lake, and application has already been made for a charter, to build a railway from  Lardeau Gity to lake Kootenay and Nelson. Lardeau|City is not a town. competing  with several other points in the same district. It is naturally the best point for supplying-the surrounding mining country, and there is a brighter prospect for it to-day  than there was for Kaslo a year ago. Lots purchased in the latter, last year, have been  sold this summer at an. advance of from, two hundred to a thousand per cent.- For  further particulars apply to ���������>  ��������� \  . .  iB  ; THEQ'S LITTLE JOKE EEOALLED.

Cold type-metal is not half sympathic enough  .:to describe that generous Bill-Nye-sort-of-srnile  which play'shide-and-seek  over Mr.   B^aven's  ; face and head when he is dispensiiig humor for  the house, so his words must he sufficient.  It was -d ii r in g the t i me that May or Dr u m ra on d  was a member of the Legislature and a supporter  of Premier Beaven.  There   were prospects of a very close division  in the House, and Davie thought if he could get.  Mayor  Drunnuond   to  leave  town there would  be a chance of defeating the Government. There  was  some* litigation   going   on in regard to lhe  Sumas  dykes, in which   Davies was  interested.  He  approached-Druiiunondj-and  asked hi in to  go to Somas.  Mayoi' Drummond, to use a vulgarism, " turn*  bled to the little game.". He accepted the proposition and was taken down to the steamship  jEnterrorise by Davie, who secured him a stateroom and went to other small - expenses. He  remained with Drummond until the latter was  presumably sound asleep* and then started up  town laughing.up his sleeve.  Davie had hardly crossed the gang-plank ho w-  ever when Drummond dressed himself and returned home, where he remained till a few minutes before the House was to sit.  Mr. Davie took his seat, and seeing Drnm-  mond's seat empty smiled a smile of satisfaction, but those who were present say that he  "more than blinked" when the member he  thought in ,Sumas walked in'o the house without cracking a smile, and sat down in front of  him. Of course Mr. Davie's defeat of the Government fell flat.  M-^AIMO-HAS, A CHAMPION.  n, B>.^S.

Balfour and its Company of Kip Van Winkles  Remain as They Were _Lefft East Year.���������Kaslo is  Ifiappy with its Front Street Blocked with Stove  Wood and its Population of Millionaires.  Your correspondent took tlie first opportunity  of looking round the lake country, and making  up for lost time when the Outlet closed the  door of civilization against Nelson, and left,  nothing for its citizens to do but gather round  the stove to discuss new townsites, and watch  the irbubbles grow.  The trip was made easier and the more enjoyable to him by the fact that he collected some  collateral on the way down, from a gentleman  of more dollai s than discretion, who laid money  that the steamer Nelson would not open the  Outlet before Thursday.  Among the notables on board was the travelling editor of the Spokane Chronicle, who when  not busied in his endeavors to extract a subscription from the Gold Commissioner graciously  sainted, smiled audibly, and exchanged a fraternal greeting with your correspondent. This  made him feel proud and happy.  Balfour looked much as usual, no striking  changes have taken place there as yet. The  same men were sitting there, in the same attitudes, on the same benches, engaged in the  same occupation as when your correspondent  saw them last.    And if the. recent cold weather  did not make such a supposition improbable  your correspondent would have inferred they  had been sitting there ever since. An air of  depressed melancholly was. spread over Pilot  Bay. This is due, it was stated to the, loss of  Hamilton Byers, late of the Galena Trading Co.  Ainsworth is showing signs that it will not be  left behind this summer. Prospects of considerable development work are good, and some  claims have recently been sold at good figures.  The machinery for continuing the great tunnel  is also expected shortly.  All was excitement when the great city of  Kaslo was tdghted. The whistle of the steamer  brought the whole leasure population of the  town down to the wharf to greet the arrivals.  The leasure population is very large���������mostly  millionaires.  The first thing that struck your correspondent  was the great number of buildings added to the  town during the past three months. Front  street Kaslo, is more built oh than any other  street in any town in West Kootenay. The  street would be improved no doubt if it were  not everyone's wood pile as well. But this practice favors the communial system in the matter  of cordwood, and is highly approved of by  many citizens.  The next subject of interest is the number of  reai estate offices. They simply swarm. Signs,  maps, price lists, descriptions, flaunt the air in  every direction. Long ago the wayfarer in  Kaslo saw nothing but a collections of mineral  specimens, and heard nothing but the taik of  mines. Now he sees nothing but real estate  maps and advertisements, and hears little but  the jargon of the trade. Perhaps this is because  the mines are now a certaintv, and much of the  real estate is not.  Mining men are begining to come in. Among  those noticed were Messrs. Wardner, Boss,  Taylor, Middaugh and Griffiths. The first of  these anticipates a big rush into the gold bear-  >������  ing district of the Duncan.    The country has an  effective boomer in J. F. Wardner.  Kaslo was in a ferment of legal excitement  over the Coy case. It was admitted that the  case, involving as it does the character of a public man, has not been surpassed in interest since  the great Crawford-Dilke suit. Justices Green  and Buchanan were objects of awe to the multitude, and bore their painful dignity with becoming gravity. This case is not yet closed, the  accused has been committed for trial, and it  would not be becoming to comment on it at  present. It is said some very sensational developments will be evolved.  The feature of the week has been the boom in  Argenta. It is hoped there will be no bloodshed  between thtrbackers of Lardo and Argenta, but  augurs ill the fierce way in which "sidehill,  and 4i snowslide," are bandied out. Your correspondent is not in the habit .of- tendering  advice to the unwary investor (he will tender  anything else from a mineral claim.,to a stack of  poker chips, provided he gets legal tender in  exchange) no office is more thankless. The investor generally disregards it, and some vendors  resent it. But if any one resents this advice he  is fitting an ugly cap on his own head. Let the  investor size up everything himself. Let him  have only himself to blame if he misses it. If  there are any vendors in this country afraid to  sell on this basis your correspondent has little  doubt but that the columns of the Miner, are  open for them to get out and say so.  On the return journey, when Nelson was  sighted, your correspondent heard a stranger  who had come in by way of Bonner's Ferry ex-  in astonishment, " Why it's as big as Kaslo!"
