NELSON,   BKITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,  APEIL 8, 1893.  $4 A YEAE  THE NEW   FREIGHT TARIFF  EEDUOING EATES TO THE CITY OP NELSON  GOES INTO EPPEOT.  It Remains to be Seen Now What the C. P. R. -will  do to Meet the <*i*eat Northern's Reduction. The  Text Of the Mew Tariff To and From tlie SHffercnt  Points in l&ootcnay, to the States.  Manager Troup of tbe C. & K. Navigation  Company this week supplied the purser of the  company's steamer with a copy of the new tariff whieh has been arranged in connection- with  the Great Northern Railway Company, naming  through rates from Chicago, St. Louis, St. Paul,  Minneapolis, West Superior and Duluth to this  city and the other lake points, Ainsworth, Kaslo,  Pilot Bay and Balfour.     The schedule shows  considerable reductions on all classes of goods  varying from 55 cents to 35 cents per hundred  pounds.  At the same time the tariff rates from Winnipeg agreed on between the C. P. R., the G. N.  R., and the C..&��������� K. S. N. Co., have been withdrawn, without any new arrangement taking  their place.  It is evident that the G. N. R. means to make  a bid for the trade of this country with Montreal, Toronto, and other eastern points.  It is understood that the C. P. R. will issue a  tariff to meet the new rates on the Great Northern. Whether it will go. the Great Northern  one better remains to be seen. If it does, an interesting aud lively competition in this country  is likely to be the result, And especially so if  the C. P. R. carries the war into the enemy's  camp, and in conjunction with the Spokane  Falls & Northern gives Spokane a through rate  from the east. The possibility of. this is extensively canvassed in Spokane, but no one, as yet,  knows what developments may be looked for.  The new rates ure'-quoted below :  Between'-_'.'..

The members off Kootenay  _<<>���������gc - Enjoy an Evening  with their Many Friends.  Though it could hardly be called a financial  success, those who took in the Odfellows' ball on  Thursday evening will attest that they had a  really good time.  The uncertainty regarding the arrival of the  steamer Nelson  doubtless had something to do  with the small attendance, as many of those expected from up the^ Outlet were not on board  when the steamer finally reached the Citizens'  wharf. __  An impromptu programme was started  shortly after nine o'clock, but on the steamer's  arrival G. H. Keefer's musicians were reinforced  and the company started on the evening's programme a little before midnight.  Refreshments were served during the evening  by the committee.     If those were present who  did not enjoy themselves they could not blame  the reception committee���������composed of ,T. A.  Gilker, E. C. Traves, and J. H. Matheson���������for  any lack of attention.  The small hours of the morning were passed  before the Medley, the last number of the evening was reached, and the company dispersed.  PUSHING THE CQNSTEUCTI0N  R0GEKS WILL  NOT   VACATE  EVIDENCES GIVEN WHICH SHOULD SATISFY  EVEN THE DOUBTING- THOMASES.  The Engineers to Commence Work at once, Bcspitc  the Fact that the Snow still Covers the Ground.  Corbin Renews his Promise that the Railroad  Will he Here in October.    .  Mr. Tabor and party came in on Tuesday  night to go to work cross sectioning on the line  of the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway.  At Beaver Creek, at the other end of the line  engineers have been in the field for. some time  past, working on snow shoes and under circumstances of great difficulty.  Mr. Tabor eapects that as there is a great deal  of work, to do on the flat he will be able to keep  his men busy, and.yet not go any faster up the  grade than the snow disappears.  The party are in their old camp at Nelson  city, commonly called Bogus town, and are occupying the old cabin built by Henry Anderson,  Nelson's first recorder, which was at one time  the seat of government in West Kootenay.  The determination shown to push on the work  of the. engineers at this end of the line while  the weather is still uncertain and the snow is on  the ground, proves conclusively that it is JD.SC.  Corbin'sintention to begin const ruction at this  end of the road.  In this connection a conversation between a  prominent Nelson citizen and D. C. Corbin  which took place in Spokane this week is interesting: "You people up there," said Mr. Corbin,  "do not seem to believe, that we mean to build  that road this summer; but if it is any object  for you to know, you may take it from me that  the road will be into Nelson by October."  The bridge over the Pend d'Oreille at.Wanita.  is progressing rapidly.    Tuesday's boat brought  the Superintendent of construction from San  Francisco..  The Kootenay Central's Charter.  G. B. Wright has been up and down between  Nelson and Ainsworth this week. He is full of  Railway matters, and is especially indignant  with the Nelson newspaper men who have been  throwing doubts upon the N. &-.F. S. Ry. construction. He considers the action of the Legislature in mutilating the Kootenay. Central's  charter as likely to result in no railway being  built into the Slocan country this year. * ' '  Notes from the Boundary.  J. C. Rykert was down this week from the  Boundary, he says that the Kootenay Reclamation works have the machinery and timbers at  Bonner's Ferry for a floating dredge, and will  do work this summer on a big scale. The largest consignment of freight which ever passed  through the Custom house was on board the  Nelson on her first trip.  The outlook for Goat river and Duck creek  mining districts is good this year. N. S. Dodds  and partner have a property on Duck creek called the Lizard which presents one of the finest  showings in the country. Mr. Rykert may be  obliged shortly to abandon the West for the  more civilized East.  THE DIFFIOLTY   IN   THE   PEESBYTEEIAN  CHUEGH SMOOTHED 0VEE  There are Many JLittle Things Enountcrcd in  Church Iiife Which go to Show that the Preacher's  Mite is Not of the Happiest Order, in Addition to  Their Meagre Missionary Allowances.  Tnmorrow will not see the last of the Rev.  T. H. Rogers as pastor of the. Presbyterian  Church in this city. The clouds have all disappeared from the sky, and things now promise to  go on as they did before.  For the past two '"weeks the Presbyterian  Church and its internal difficulties and disagree-  ments, have receivad a great ��������� deal of attention  from both Church-going people, and those who  never see the inside of a church.  The most common report, was of course farther  from the truth than the others. It was to the  effect that Rev.T. H. Rogers had grown tired of  preaching, and determined to apply himself to  another calling. The cause of the whole trouble  was due however, to a misunderstanding between the pastor and one of the elders of the  Church.  From what can be gleaned it would seem that  Rev. T. H.. Rogers has not followed out the cusr  toms of the rigid forefathers of the church and  one of the elders commenting rather severely  thereupon gave the .pastor the impression that  there was a gooply sized kick coming, and as he  was in. a manner self appointed to this locality  he decided that he would slide out.  A short time, ago some new converts were  made to the church. : They were aduIts and the  pastor decided that it would not be necessary to  have them quizzed by the elders before partaking of the sacrament, so he dispensed with the  useless, form, and the converts observed the  rites of the sacrament without the quizzing.  This gave birth to the first kick.  The recond was made when the pastor informed his hearers, in the course of his sermon, that  they should not follow the impulses of their  hearts, but rather be guided by their consciences.  This was set down as hypoericy, and developed  v    r kii  k.   '   ''.'.'"������������������''������������������''"���������. '''.A::'\.':--A-       -'���������/���������'������������    "  Room for another was found in a recent baptism in which the youngster was sprinkled in  the home of the parents instead of in the church,  and this' was not considered good Presbyter-  ianism.  These little pleasantries decided the pastor in  his plan to step down and out, and, he announced his purpose on Sunday last. Since then however, the elder has explained everything away,  and affairs in the church at the corner have settled down to the cistdmary routine and Rev.  T. II. Rogers will continue the pastorate.  Four Mile.City Xooks Well.  R. W. Rathbone is down from New Denver to  taste once more of civilization. He reports work  shut down on the Mountain Boomer for want of  grub. He considers' the prospects of Four-Mile  camp to be excellent for the coming summer. In  his opinion snow-shoes are very nearly over for  the year, the rapid thaw in January having  brought down a great deal of the snow.  Mountain Chief Extensions Sold.  The extensions of the Mountain  Chief have  been sold for good figures. Regarding one of  these there wTas a jumping case at the last  County Court which was dismissed in a very  summary manner by Judge Walkem. The  defeudant is now richer by something between  $5,000 and $10,000.  ...sgi*.

Two of Nelson's Representative Business Men IRecog-  nizing their Awkward Predicament with their  Fire Insurance Companies Have Wired Barnard  to Ascertain what lie Purposes Boing.  The situation in regard to the Nelson waterworks breakdown is becoming very serious.  A few days ago the local agent of several fire  insurance companies published a notice in the  Miner to the effect that if the breakdown be not  ' remedied within a certain time that all policies  on property within the district affected by the  breakdown would be cancelled.  Today the representative  of other fire insurance  companies doing business in this city has  , also given notice to the same effect.  Practically nothing has been done to remedy  the defects of the system. In fact it is said that  there is not a sufficiency of pipes in the city to  repair the break. But with a company with  such an apparent absence of an executive head  as the Consumers' Water Works company, such  is not to be accounted - strange. F. S. Barnard  the   chief   stockholder, occupies   the   office   of  president, but his absence from the city and  - district renders it impossible for him to exercise  anything like an efficient supervision of the  company's system. Arther E. Hodgins holds  the office of engineer, but he has probably found  it a difficult task to repair breakdowns in the  system at Nelson, from his residence in Toronto.  Duncan McGillivray is supposed to attend to  the mechanical part of the work, but he is also  out of town.  These may constitute extenuating circumstances from the company's point of view, but  will scarcely convince the insurance companies  that Nelson has the fire protection which it has  not.  The  carrying  out of  the threat of one of the  local agents means the cancellation of policies to  the  extent  of $86,705, and this amount will be  swelled considerably when  the risks carried by '  other  companies are   taken  into  account.  The cancelling of these policies is a serious  consideration to the business men of Nelson as  it envolves an element of insecurity which will  hardly be condusive to the business prosperity  of the city. Nelson as the supply point of the  Kootenay district must of necessity carry heavy  and expensive stocks. It will work a great  hardship to be without fire insurance because it  will greatly affect the credit of the business men  of this city as it sweeps away a recognized form  of security to their creditors, and in the event  of fire it would mean the absolute ruin of a great  many of them.    *  Two of the leading business men of the city  acquainted President Barnard, by wire yesterday afternoon, of their awkward predicament.  It remains to be seen whether the company  entrusted* with so valuable a charter will continue to remain altogether indifferent to the  interests of the citizens of Nelson.  THE BENCHERS ELECTION.

Although the Nelson & Fort Sheppard engineers have arrived on the scene prepared to go to  work at on ce, there are still some people in  Nelson who have their doubts about the road  being built this summer.  The Miner's "Victoria representative touched  the fountain head for news concerning the construction of this road and received the following : ''There will always be doubting Thomases,  ipp dear fellow, both in Nelson and elsewhere,  -until the last moment when they see the locomotive steaming into Nelson. They will see  that next September. As to the bonds spoken  of in yonr last issue, I may assure you that the  bonds of the N. & F. S. Ry. have been placed  long ago, and that the meeting of shareholders  to sanction their issue, is a mere formality required by law.  "As to terminal buildings, don't let people be  carried away by foolish and unauthorized prophecies. The line will be a through line from  Spokane to Nelson, with a Custom house, I suppose, on the bpundary line, and landings dependent upon the current of the river and the nature  of the shore."  This is the opinion of the man most likely to  know, and unless he wilfully misrepresented  facts (which from his character is in the highest  degree improbable) the N. & F. S. Ry. locomotive will be in Nelson by September, unless prevented by God or the Queen's enemies.  THE 'SENTINEL' IS NERVOUS.  The Kamloops  Sentinel cannot get over  its  opposition to the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway.    It is to make West Kootenay  tributary  to Spokane, according to the Sentinel, and for  this reason should be condemned by every loyal  Canadian.    We do not see how West Kootenay  can be made any more tributary to Spokane by  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard than it is  at present  without it.    There  are  certain respects in  which this country is tributary to Spokane, and  other respects in which it is not.    It is  in  Spokane that  we find  a  market for  our  mineral  claims; it is upon Spokane  and United  States  capital,   intelligence,  and   enterprise   that  we  draw to develop the country.   It is from  Spokane that the West Kootenay tradesman  gets  any article which he must have at  once,   exclusive  of any  consideration  of cost; and it is to  Spokane that the miner goes when he wishes to  taste, for a short time, the pleasures of .city life.  Besides which it is  through  Spokane  that for  many months in  the year we maintain  communication with the  outside world,   including  Kamloops. These are not unimportant matters,  but it is nature and circumstances, not the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway, which give  Spokane the precedence.    In matters of trade, however, and national sentiment this country is not  tributary to Spokane or to any other part of  Uncle Sam's dominions, and we hope never will  be. And far from having the effect which the  Kamloops Sentinel expects, the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard, in giving us all-the-year-round communication with our centres of supply in the  East, will actually lessen "the force of the commanding position which Spokane at present undoubtedly occupies with regard to West Koote-  .nay.  There is one thing certain, that if the attitude  of the Sentinel were backed by powerful Canadian influence, and were the basis of a policy,  it would do more in three weeks to make the inhabitants of this district tender their hearts' allegiance to the Stars and Stripes, than a dozen  railroads from the States in the same number  of years.  We would ask the Sentinel a plain question :  Is the Nelson &Fort Sheppard Railway going  to be a benefit to West Kootenay and as such, a  benefit to the Province and Dominion generally,  or is it not ?  If it is,why does the Sentinel maintain such  a mistaken and unworthy attitude towards it?  If not, why does not the Sentinel oppose it on  that ground, and not because of some benefit it  is about to confer on Spokane?  REDISTRIBUTION POSTPONED.  The Government has announced that there  will be no redistribution bill brought down this  session. There has been much talk about redistribution, and although the Government had  pledged itself to redistribution as soon as the  population of the province was ascertained,  it was understood by those on the inner circle  that redistribution would not take place until  the Government could postpone the measure no  longer.  <=' Q  It was postponed last session. It has been  postponed again. That the present composition  of the House is a burlesque on the representative system of Government no one can doubt.  Coming so close on the vote for the parliamentary buildings which was generally disapproved  of by the mainland, it may give rise to the suspicion that the Government is afraid of anything in the shapp of a redistribution bill.  The Colonist, the Government organ, seeks to  reason away all objection to the postponement  by explaining that redistribution would not have  been followed by a general election. Now as  soon as the string is pulled from Victoria, we  may expect to hear that the Vancouver World  has also suddenly discovered reasons why the  redistribution bill should have been again postponed, although it labored hard to convince its  readers to the contrary a short time ago.  MINERAL ACT AMENDMENTS.  The proposed changes in the Mineral Act, as  reported (for the Bill is not yet to hand) are perplexing in the extreme, and we are driven to  the conclusion that in the report before us, something which gives the key to the whole matter  is omitted.  So far as forecasts of the amendment showed,  we were under the impression that the law was  to closely resemble that of Colorado, in so far  at least as the amount of development work required to be done, and the making of an affidavit respecting mineral in place, before a record  could be made.  But in the report before us there is nothing of  this, merely a new and exceedingly complicated,  vague and generally unsatisfactory method of  staking off a claim.  Unless a Bill which shows very material and  obvious advantages is brought in, it would be  better in the interests of everyone, except the  lawyers, to leave the law, bad as it is, alone.  MISTAKEN^LEGISLATION. ^  That part of the charter of the Kootenay  Central Railway which covers its right of way  from Kaslo to Bear Lake City has been thrown  out by the Legislature to protect the interests  of the Kaslo Slocan Railway.  A numbee of well meaning people have endorsed this action of the Legislature because  they think think that the N. & F. S. company's  charter once obtained, , D. C. Corbin would  build that section from Kaslo to Bear Lake,  and that only; delaying the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard till a more convenient season* and  making a lever of his railway connection with  the mines to divert the ore traffic round by the  C. & K., the Columbia river, and the S. F. & N.  Whether this was at all likely may be judged  from the way in which the N. & F. S. is being  pushed forward now, and was certainly discounted by the fact that money to provide for  the building of the N. & F. S. was secured long  before the matter came up.  However the Kaslo Slocan has been protected  in its monopoly. Such protection it is  supposed will enable that road to build  at once. We hope so but such has not  hitherto been toe effect of conferring priileges  on railway promoters. The people of this country are strongly in favor of free trade in railways. Let the man who means business have  no obstacles put in his way.  A possible outcome of the whole business may  be that Mr, Corbin may be drawn into looking  for another way into tae Slocan country. And  in this connection the development of the Slocan mines tributary to Slocan lake, and of the  Four Mile creek district, will be anxiously  watched thic summer.  THE WORLD'S FAIR.  The collection of photographs exhibited last  week at the offices of Mr. J. R. Anderson, Government Statistician and commissioner for the  World's Fair, do that gentleman credit. We  venture to prophecy that no section of America  will be more beautifully illustrated at the Fair  than B. C.  The photographs, collected from many sources,  were for the most part enlarged by Messrs.  Fleming of Victoria, and some of the work looked almost as fine as the best wood engravings.  There were over 400 photographs in all, and the  subjects illustrated covered the whole province,  and almost the whole range of life within the  province. There were harvest fields flooded  with sunlight, and heavy with phenomenal  crops, rivers of salmon, up couutry cattle ranches, a fishing party on the Nympkish river, and  a hunter's camp full of fresh killed trophies on  Bridge river.  Perhaps if the collection had a fault, it was  that Kootenay was not sufficiently represented.  This fault will however [be amended, as Mr.  Phillipps-Wolley obtained a promise from Mr.  Anderson that if he would take and forward to  him, as soon as possible, some typical photographs of the district and its industries, they  should be developed, enlarged and forwarded  after the bulk of the collection to the Fair,  CURRENT COMMENTS.  Even 'Ras Wiman the renegade Canadian annexationist has found out that his pet hobby  will not go down with Canadians. In a recent  speech at Ottawa he disclaimed the annexation  leadership and set out upon a new commercial  tack.  'ffi THE __TEB: HELSON, B. 0.,  SATUEDAY,  APEIL 8, 1893.  1.  _Je  3  4.  5.

Although the Nelson & Fort Sheppard engineers have arrived on the scene prepared to go to  work at once, there are still some people in  Nelson who have their doubts about the road  being built this summer.  The Miner's "Victoria representative touched  the fountain head for news concerning the construction of this road and received the following:, *'There will always be doubting Thomases,  inp dear fellow, both in Nelson and elsewhere,  until the last moment when they see the locomotive steaming into Nelson. They will see  that next September. As to the bonds spoken  of in yonr last issue, I may assure you that the  bonds of the N. &F. S. Ry. have been placed  long ago, and that the meeting of shareholders  to sanction their issue, is a mere formality required by law.  "As to terminal buildings, don't let people be  carried away by foolish and unauthorized prophecies. The linle will be a through line from  Spokane to Nelson, with a Custom house, I suppose, on the boundary line, and landings dependent upon the current of the river and the nature  of the shore."  This is the opinion of the man most likely to  know, and unless he wilfully misrepresented  facts (which from his character is in the highest  degree improbable) the N. & F. S. Ry. locomotive will be in Nelson by September, unless prevented by God or the Queen's enemies.  THE 'SENTINEL' IS NERVOUS.  The Kamloops Sentinel cannot get over its  opposition to the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway.    It is to make West Kootenay tributary  to Spokane, according to the  Sentinel, and for  this reason should be condemned by every loyal  Canadian.    We do not see how West Kootenay  can be made any more tributary to Spokane by  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard than it is  at present  without  it.    There  are  certain respects in  which this country is tributary to Spokane, and  other respects in which it is not.    It is  in   Spokane that  we  find a  market for  our   mineral  claims; it is upon Spokane  and United  States  capital,   intelligence,  and   enterprise   that  we  draw to develop the country.    It is from  Spokane that the West Kootenay tradesman  gets  any article which he must have at  once,   exclusive  of any  consideration  of cost; and it is to  Spokane that the miner goes when he wishes to  taste, for a short time, the pleasures of .city life.  Besides which it is  through  Spokane  that  for  many months  in  the year we maintain communication with the outside world,  including  Kamloops. These are not unimportant matters,  but it is nature and circumstances, not the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway, which give   Spokane the precedence.    In matters of trade, however, and national sentiment this country is not   '  tributary to Spokane or to any other part of  Uncle Sam's dominions, and we hope never will  be. And far from having the effect which the  Kamloops Sentinel expects, the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard, in giving us all-the-year-round communication with our centres of supply in the  East, will actually lessen "the force of the commanding position which Spokane at present undoubtedly occupies with regard to West Kootenay.  - ���������'��������� .' ������ '.. ' \    '   ..���������'':  There is one thing certain, that if the attitude  of the Sentinel were backed by powerful Canadian influence, and were the basis of a policy,  it would do more in three weeks to make the inhabitants of this district tender their hearts' allegiance to the Stars and Stripes, than a dozen  railroads from the States in the same number  of years.: ��������� . .    .  We would ask the Sentinel a plain question :  Is the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway going  to be a benefit to West Kootenay and as such, a  benefit to the Province and Dominion generally,  or is it not ?  If it is, why does the Sentinel maintain such  a mistaken and unworthy attitude  towards  it?  If not, why does not the Sentinel oppose it on  that ground, and not because of some benefit it  is about to confer on Spokane?  REDISTRIBUTION POSTPONED.  The Government has announced that there  will be no redistribution bill brought down this  session. There has been much talk about redistribution, and although the Government had  pledged itself to redistribution as soon as the  population of the province was ascertained,  it was understood by those on the inner circle  that redistribution would not take place until  the Government could postpone the measure no  longer.  It was postponed last session. It has been  postponed again. That the present composition  of the House is.a burlesque on the representative system of Government no one can doubt.  Coming so close on the vote for the parliamentary buildings which was generally disapproved  of by the mainland, it may give rise to the suspicion that the Government is afraid of anything in the shapp of a redistribution bill.  The Colonist, the Government organ, seeks to  reason away all objection to the postponement  by explaining that redistribution would not have  been followed by a general election. Now as  soon as the string is pulled from "Victoria, we  may expect to hear that the Vancouver World  has also suddenly discovered reasons why the  redistribution bill should have been again postponed, although it labored hard to convince its  readers to the contrary a short time ago.  MINERAL ACT AMENDMENTS.  The proposed changes in the Mineral Act, as  reported (for the Bill is not yet to hand) are perplexing in the extreme, and we are driven to  the conclusion that in the report before us, something which gives the key to the whole matter  is omitted.  So far as forecasts of the amendment showed,  we were under the impression that the law was  to closely resemble that of Colorado, in so far  at least as the amount of development work required to be done, and the making of an affidavit respecting mineral in place, before a record  could be made.  But in the report before us there is nothing of  this, merely a new and exceedingly complicated,  vague and generally unsatisfactory method of  staking off a claim.  Unless a Bill which shows very material and  obvious advantages is brought in, it would be  better in the interests" of everyone, except the  lawyers, to leave the law, bad as it is, alone.  MISTAKEN LEGISLATION.  That part of the charter of the Kootenay  Central Railway which covers its right of way  from Kaslo to Bear Lake City has been thrown  out by the Legislature to protect the interests  of the Kaslo Slocan Railway.  A numbee of well meaning people have endorsed this action of the Legislature because  they think think that the N. & F. S. company's.,,  charter once obtained, E>. C. Corbin would  build that section from Kaslo to Bear Lake,  and that only ^delaying the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard till a more convenient season, and  making a lever of his railway connection with  the mines to divert the pre traffic round by the  C. & K., the Columbia river, and the S. F. & N.  Whether this was at all likely may be judged  from the way in which the N. & F. S. is being  pushed forward now, and was certainly discounted by the fact that money to provide for  the building of the N. & F. S. was secured long  before the matter came up.  However the Kaslo Slocan has been protected  in its monopoly. Such protection it is  supposed will enable that road to build  at once. We hope so but such has not  hitherto been toe effect of conferring priileges  on railway promoters. The people of this country are strongly in favor of free trade in railways. Let the man who means business have  no obstacles put in his way.  A possibie0 outcome of the whole business may  be that Mr, Corbin may be drawn into looking  for another way into tae Slocan country. And  in this connection the development of the Sip-,  can mines tributary to Slocan lake, and of the  Four Mile creek district, will be anxiously���������"������  watched thic summer.  THE WORLD'S PAIR.  The collection of photographs exhibited last  week at the offices of Mr. J. R. Anderson, Government Statistician and commissioner for the  World's Fair, do that gentleman credit. We  venture to prophecy that no section of America  will be more beautifully illustrated at the Fair  than B. C.  The photographs, collected from many sources,  were for the most part enlarged by Messrs.  Fleming of Victoria, and some of the work looked almost as fine as the best wood engravings.  There were over 400 photographs in all, and the  subjects illustrated covered the whole province,  and almost the whole range of life within the  province. There were harvest fields flooded  with sunlight, and heavy with phenomenal  crops, rivers of salmon, up couutry cattle ranches, a fishing party on the Nympkish river, and  a hunter's camp full of fresh killed trophies on  Bridge river.  Perhaps if the collection had a fault, it was  that Kootenay was not sufficiently represented.  This fault will however ;be amended, as Mr.  Phillipps-Wolley obtained a promise from Mr,  Anderson that if he would take and forward to  him, as soon as possible, some typical photographs of the district and its industries, they  should be developed, enlarged and forwarded  after the bulk of the collection to the Fair,  CURRENT COMMENTS.  ���������*  Even 'Ras Wiman the renegade Canadian annexationist has found out that his pet hobby  will not go down with Canadians.

The Mines are  reached by Trail from Lardeau, which is naturally the distributing point for  supplies, and the shipping point for ore from these Rich Mining ^  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 clearing of a portion of the  Townsite, for the erection of hotel and stores, and for various other improvements, so  that Lardeau City 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 railwayfrom  Lardeau City 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 .  _  ASLO.

EXCHANGE NATIONAL BANK  OF SPOKANE,  STATE  OF WASHINGTON.  Baker street, Nelson, B.-..C.  The steamer Nelson returned from Bonner's  Ferry on.Monday evening bringing with her 67  passengers, most of them for Kaslo, and the  largest amount of bonded freight which ever  passed through the Customs at the Boundary  ��������� Line.  The rapid disappearance of the ice was a surprise to everyone. Captain Troup, who had  opportunities of knowing what the ice was like  said that if anyone had wired him that the river  was open, he would have treated it as a practical joke. It appears that the warm rain of last  week caused a freshet in the river which burst  the ice up and carried it off in a single day.  The new boat at Bonner's Ferry is making  good progress, as are the repairs on the Spokane;  when these are completed the Spokane will  have considerably more saloon accomodation  than before. It is expected that there will be  enormous traffic over the Bonner's Ferry route  this year, and active competition betweeu the  owners of the new boat and the C. & K.  The Nelson and the Spokane will shortly be  fitted with 6,000 candle power electric searchlights. The plants have been ordered from Wisconsin, where they make a specialty of manufacturing search-lights for use on the Mississippi river steamers. Those ordered for the C.  & K. Steam Navigation Company will be the  exact couuterpart of the ones in use there. The  machinery is on its way in by Bonner's Ferry,  over the Great Northern, and it is expected that  the boat will be fitted up by the 10th. of this  month.

King, of the Interior Department at Ottawa, has completed all his arrangements for his departure for Alaska, as the Canadian commissioner on the international commission, appointed to begin the work of defining  the boundary line between British Columbia  and Alaska. The work will occupy about two  years. The American com missioner is Professor  Mendenhall, of the United States coast  survey.  A start will be made from Victoria,,in Government steamers at the end of this month. The  instructions to the commissioners are to gather  dates and facts necessary for the delineation of  the frontier. Woik will commence at the  southerly end of Prince of Wales Sound.  The joint  survey will  comprise ten  or eleven  parties of about eight men each.  When the treaty was negotiated in 1825, nothing was known respecting the topography of  the country. The treaty provides "that the  boundary shall follow the summits of the highest peaks of mountains, running parallel, hut  yet not more than ten wiles distant from the  coast. According to the recent convention with  the United States the survey parties will be distinct, but each country will have a representative on them. It is expected that the southern  half of the boundary will be surveyed this year  and the remainder, extending to Mount St.  Elias, before the fall of 1894.

B.  0,, 'SATURDAY,  APEIL  8,  1893.  THAT HOSPITAL  HAS NOT GIVEN UP THE G-HOST BUT MEEELY  AWAITS ITS INOOEPOEATION.  The Members of tlie Committee Will Pass Kound the  Mat as a First Step.���������S>onatiiig to tlie Hospital  Will be a Splendid Investment for tliose Wlio  are Continuously Putting up for Needy Sufferers.  It will doubtless be pleasing to the people of  Nelson to know that the hospital committee  appointed some time ago to take steps to secure  a hospital for this city, has no thought of abandoning the hospital scheme.  The committee is waiting for its incorporation, without which the committee can do  nothing as a 'body. Dr. Arthur, the secretary  of the committee explained that the desired  incorporation had been delayed through the  neglect of the committee in not sending a set of  by-laws with the application. Since then the  committee adopted, practically the same by-laws  as those governing the Royal Jubilee hospital of  Victoria,cand the announcement of the incorporation may be expected at any time.  The first move'of the committee will be to  organize a house to house canvas for subscriptions.  As Doctors Arthur and LaBau have each  signified their willingness to divide the medical  work of the hospital, the expenses under this  head will be but nominal, until the hospital  becomes self-supporting and can afford to have  president physician. The chief item of expense  will be the non-prfossional help. It will be  necessary to have a man and his wife on the  place, and this will get away with considerable  of the government appropriation.  The need of such an institution will appeal to  .the people of Nelson, and when the hat is pass-v  ed  round- the  committee's  expection  of   $1500  will no doubt be realized.

All is activity in the infant cities of Lardo  and Argenta, and the feature of the day at  Kaslo is the rapid advance in the value of lots  in the latter place. Andy Revsbeck of the Victoria Hotel, Nelson, went to Kaslo on the first  boat and has returned to town richer by $500  realized by the judicious purchase and re-sale  of Argenta town lots.  At Lardo Messrs Fletcher and Taylor have  put up a good hotel known as the Great Northern; Messrs. Hamilton and Hopkins are busy on  a large general store and ware-house. Another  hotel is to be built shortly by Rankle and Shearer, and another store by Maurice and Lefergey.  The wharf was begtn this week: the plan shows  that it will be a noble looking structure when  completed 40 feet wide and 320 feet long.  J. Suck smith has arrived in Lardo, and the  machinery for the Sawmill wliich he intends to  build there is already on its way in.  At Argenta two hotels are being built, one by  Walmsley and Piper, and the other by White-  sides and Bigsby. The townsite owners have  begun to clear aud grade streets, and work on  the wharf is making good progress.  TEE MOENING- MINE'S LOSSES.  ������. 15, Huntley Says that the Shareholders were Losing  Thousands Every Month.  Speaking of the losses of the Morning Mine  Company, D. B. Huntley,the manager, says:    '-  "You may state that the loss to the company  from operating the mine in December was $6000,  in January $7000,.in February $2000, and from  the 1st. to the 17th. of March the loss was $2500,  the decrease of expenses for the month of February being due to the fact that better ore was  taken out than during the previous month.  Something in Their   Drinking Water.  The following is rescued from the Columbian  of New Westminster. Something seems to  have got into their drinking water down there :  The citizens of Westminster have been refused the use  of their City Hall. The Opear House, even, has been  closed against them, by orders from Victoria, and cannot  be had for love or money! But, tonight, every man who  has the blood of a freeman in his veins is invited to rally at  the City Hall Square, and there, in the free air of heaven  (even though the elements should seem to conspire with  the country's oppressors) to exorcise his inalienable right  of free speech, in condemnation of one of the most injurious  and outrageous pieces of legislation, when all the circumstances of the Province are considered, that a so-called  responsible government has ever attempted to impose upon  any country.

THE MDMNS MAKE A BLITFF  WHICH DOES FOT  GO  DOWN WITH  GOLD  COMMISSIONER PITZSTUBBS.  A X.ong-lIca<Ic<l Siwasli builds a House on flee line  of .tlic Kootenay fteclaiinatioii l>ylte in the Hope  of ������claying tlie Worlt an������l Extorting a Compensation Claim froni tlie Government.  . Captain Fitzstubbs returned on Thursday evening from a visit to the Boundary line, where  he has had again to interfere between the. Indians and the Reclamation Company. Readers  of the Miner will remember that on two occasions trouble arose with the Indians in connection with the Reclamation works.  Captain Fitzstubbs inf: r.ned them hewoik  must go on, that they would be compensated  for any damage done to their property, and  that if they did any damage themselves to the  company's works, they would certainly be punished.  This formed the basis of an agreement which  the Indians swore on the crucifix they would  observe.  The present trouble arose from the action of  an old Indian who saw a way of obtaining compensation by erecting a house on the line of the  ditching operations. Captain Fitzstubbs main-;  tained his stand on the agreement to which the  tribe had bound themselves, and resisted all attempts to introduce side issues. He refused to  allow the house builder's, claims for co npensa-  tioi>. At this the speculator grew hostile and  impertinent, but both he and the chief steadfastly refused to cross the International boundary, and argue their case on British soil. They  had a suspicion of what really was the case,that  Captain .Fitzstubbs had handcuffs in his pocket,  and would have brought them to Nelson had  the3^ not shown themselves amenable to the  conditions of their previous agreement,  The Captain does not expect any further  trouble. When the Indians find they cannot  monkey with the central authority, they submit.  UTTIiE 1LOCAL CHAPTERS.  In  Wliiclr Everyone  is   Made Acquainted with the  Movements of Everybody Else.

It will rivet the attention when ordinary printed Circulars fail.
