NELSON,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,  MAY 20, 1893.  $4 A YEAB.  THE WORK NOW UNDER WAT  CLEARING- BEGUN ON TEEJtfELSON DIVISION  OF THE N. & P. S. EIGHT OF WAY.  The Long; Delayed Supplies arc Beginning to Arrive  ���������Contractor I.arson Gives an Outline of the  Present Condition of the Work and the Number  of Men to he Employed.  Contractor Larson, of the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard railway, has just returned from  Spokane. He was asked by a Miner reporter  as to the present condition of his railroad work.  "Well, I think," said he, " that I can safely  say that everything is rapidly getting into good  shape, Several carloads of our long delayed  supplies have .arrived, for which we are duly  thankful, or we can now proceed at once with  construction work as fast as the right of way is  cleared.  "The clearing will begin the latter end of  this week, as the first of next and from that  time on there will be no let up until the last  spike is driven. In order to finish the work  within the required length of time it will be  necessary to employ some 1,500 to 1,800 men.  Of these 600 to 800 will be at work all summer  between here and the summit. .  " As to the pay, the men will get $2.00 per  day, and a charge of-$5.25 per week will be  made for board. There will be no difficulty in  getting all the men we want. In fact, from the  number of applications at the other end of the  work I think they are already in the country.  You see many of the men who have subcontracts and station work have been with me  elsewhere, and they have more or less of an immediate following, so that everyone will have  men enough on hand to begin work as soon as  they get their camps in shape.  ". Personally, I nave none of the work reserved for myself, but will of course exercise a  general supervision over the entire line."  Out at the camp is a scene of bustle and activity on every hand. The tools and mechanical  supplies have been arriving for some days and  are being distributed along the line.as rapidly  as possible. Work shops and bunk houses are  being built, and the ring of the axe sounds like  a dropping lire from a skirmish line. Actual  construction has been delayed during the past  few davs owing to the rain making it necessary  to get everything under cover as soon as possible. This part of the work is about completed,  aun from now on Contractor McLean's first ten  miles will be made to hum.  The much sought after beef contract was finally awarded to Hull Bros., the Calgary and  Kamloops cattle men. They expect to do quite  a local trade in connection with the filling of  their contract, as it will be very easy to add a  few more head to each shipment required for the  use of the railroad gang. .  With from 600 to 800 men working steadily  all summer right at the doors of Nelson, and  the usual extra number that will be shifting  about, in coming and going during all that time,  the result will undoubtedly be a very satisfactory increase in business generally.  Latest News from Duncan.  Mr. C. Hamber who is just down from Duncan  city reports that the trail is. now through from  Argenta to the east side of Hauser lake opposite  Duncan city. The time over to the lake from  Argenta is now only about three hours. The  water in the river is now so high as to render  any any attempt at navigation very unsafe.  Several outfits have been swamped during the  past few days though fortunately so far none of  the accidents have resulted in the loss of life.  On the day before Mr. Hamber left 13 outfits  were counted passing up the lake by Duncan:  Two strikes of rich free milling gold ore were  reported from a point about 25 milesabove Duncan. The samples brought down were quite full  of specks and flakes of gold.  Almost all those who come into the country  now are taking the trail. Mr. Perry is building  a bridge over Grizzly creek as the water in it is  getting too high to ford and has swept the temporary bridge away. Piper and Co.'s pack  trains are making regular trips over the trail  and carry freight at 2������cents a pound.  A contract has just been let for the clearing  and grading of the two principal streets of the  town. Buildings are going up rapidly and the  indications generally are promising.  THE   SITUATION   AT   SAYWAED.  News from the Other End of the line���������Preparing to  Push Railroad Work.  Work at this end of the Nelson and Fort  Sheppard railroad is now well under way.  Several miles of station work have been sublet ; the wagon road has been pushed up Beaver  Creek for five miles from Saywaid, and many  parties of laborers have turned out. The contractors are now receiving the bulk of their  supplies,  and   in. addition  to   their  capacious  buildings, have erected an immense canvas  warehouse for stores. Bids for culverts and  round crib work on the first eight miles are now  under consideration.  Messrs. Hull &} Leeson, of Calgary, have secured the contract for the supply of meat, and  they will at once put in a large corral at the  south end of Say ward, so as not to pollute the  water supply of the town. The oxen will come  from their ranches in Alberta.  Sayward will be the terminal landing of the  C. & K. S. N. Company's boats on the Columbia  liver, as soon as the railroad line is completed  into the town ; the water below this point is  only navigated with great difficulty at all times  and the boats will shorten their run by 12 or 14=  miles, all freight to and from the States being  transhipped at Sayward.  Just  south  of    the  International  boundary  there is a choice and motley collection of American   roughs,   toughs,    and    gamblers ;    there  is no plotted townsite, but they are located promiscuously on.old placer claims, and expect to  transact  a  rushing  business with their fellow  countrymen laboring on the railroad, and. who,  they imagine, must resort thither after pay day  for rest and recreation.    Their wholesome and  well-grounded   fear   of   the    promptness    and  severity  of British law keeps them where they  are, and every effort will be made to keep this  camp  orderly and  law-abiding.      The issue of  licenses will  be  carefully  looked into,   and no  saloon,   gin  mill,   or   gambling   dive   will   be  tolerated" for  a  moment.     Properly equipped  hotels, however, will no doubt be duly licensed  in sufficient numbers.  As the contractors are not selling stores to  outside parties storekeepers will have a good  show to make money.  Messrs. Kirk & Ritchie's contract for the survey o^the townsite will shortly be completed.  Mr. Ritchie is expected here daily to finish the  work already commenced under his instructions.  W. R. Poulton is doing a heavy business at  the Sayward Hotel, and Messrs. Allen & Mad-  den's hotel, 30x40 feet, containing 14 bedrooms,  is approaching complation.  Mr. Perrott, the building contractor, has his  hanps full, having contracts for three other  buildings.  IN   COUNTY COURT  CIRCLES  JUDGE    SPINKS    DISPOSES    OF   MATTEES  SPEEDILY-DALY GETS TWO YEAES,  The .Dispute over the Ownership of the Best ClaiTa  opens with an.Extensive Argument on JTurisdic-  diction. A case which involves some nice Points  in Partnership location of Claims.  Justice Spinks opened the county court here  yesterday.    The case of R. Forrester Daly held  on several  charges of embezzlement from the  Bank of British Columbia was. speedily disposed1  of as the   prisoner was  only arraigned on one  charge that of embezzling $350 from one Neeley.  In this case the money was deposited by Neeley  who received a  deposit receipt from Daly, but  the money   did not find   its way   into the bank  coffers.    John   Elliott  who   appeared   for   the  prisoner, Daly, entered a plea of guilty  and elected trial   under speedy  trials   act.    The prisoner had   practically   been   sentenced  to three.  years, but on   the pleading   of council   the sen- -  tence was cut down to two years in the penitentiary. J. H. Bowes appeared for the prosecution.  The case involving the ownership  of the Best  mine and others Of that group  came up in the'  court today.    The  defendants Mr.  Agnew et al  claim that an agreement between them and-the :  defendants  Mr.  Hughes et al, was made to the  effect that the latter were  to prospect for and v  locate claims in which there should  be an equal  interest.    That such claims  have been   located  and the further conditions not complied with.  On the other hand Mr. Hughes claims that the  other party failed to put up the requisite amount  of money  at the right time to entitle them to  any share   in the   property.    The   time of   the  court was largely occupied in hearing argument  on behalf of both sides as to jurisdiction  of the .  court in such cases.    The court was of the opinion that the case should  go up  to the  supreme  court.    It was finally decided to proceed  with  the case  until   evidence was   reached   showing  that an amount greater than $2500 was "involved ���������  in which  event the  case is to  be ordered  up to ���������  the higher court.    The remainder  of the afternoon was consumed in hearing  the  evidence of  Mr. Agnew.    The plaintiffs are  represented by  Messrs.   Elliott   and Glass  and   the defense by  Messrs. Bowes aud McLeod.  Are Mafeiisg Kcttcr Time.  The Columbia and  Kootenay  steam   navigation company aie  perfectiug as rapidly  as possible a series of arrangements which will tend to  greatly   improve   the   traffic on   the Columbia'  river and the Kootenay lake.    Tables of running-  time are being systematized and better connec-.  tions are being made all round.    In a short time  things   will be   in   a   condition  to warrant the  bringing out of a new and vastly improved time!  table.  Heavy l>cvclopmcnt Work.  Trail creek will be one of the  busy camps this  summer.    N. P. Anderson is now  on his way in  to that place from  Spokane with men,  teams  and supplies to carry out his contract for development work on the Le Roi, Josie aud War  Eagle claims. The work must be completed by  September 1st and about 50 men will be worked  all summer to finish in time. If the results of  the developments are favorable the pyritic  smelter is a sure thing.  The grading on the railroad is near finished up  to the Pend d'Oreille river, and track laying is;  being pushed in order to land steel for the bridge  as soon as possible.  ifeE^^^ m  l$- :<"  I*  "1.  m  THE MINEE : NELSON,  B.

Certainly the ways of Government are mysterious at times and past finding out except by  actual and generally costly experiment with  those unknown forces.  Some citizens of Nelson have recently passed  through an experience of Iiow the government  string which is tied to the pre-emption of land  can be drawn back, and the land with it.  It is known that it is possible as the law now  stands for the government to step in and put a.  reserve on any portion of the public lands no  matter how far the law has been complied with  in the process of acquiring individual ownership.  A beautiful example of this is noted elsewhere  in this issue. Dr. E. C. Arthur,-Wilson Hall  and Alfred Hall made a pre-emption of 160 acres  of land at the head of Slocan lake in October  1891. These gentlemen proceeded as rapidly as  possible to conditions of purchase required by  the land act. They spent some 45 days in clearing and putting things into shape.  In March 1892 the government happened to  glance its speculatiee eye over  that section and  a reserve was the result. One the pre-emption  were some 30 acres of good flat land and it was  to secure this that the 160 acaes were located.  The remainder is rough and so broken and hilly  as to be of almost no value.  Now notice carefully that the reserve has  been lifted off every portion of the land except  the level part, and if those who made their investments of time and rnoney on the place orr  iginally wish to recover part of their outlay they  can seek it in the barren hills around the fat  little slice which the government has taken possession of. How long will this continue until  citizens are afraid or unwilling to touch public  land at all.       :     ' . .    .     '   "..'���������..  NOT A FAIR INDEX.  The "Victoria Times and the Colonist are just  now engaged in a war of words over the comparative population of the Island and the Mainland. The Colonist has asserted that "The  number of children enrolled in the schools is in  this, as well as in every other country where a  public school system is in operation, as good an  index of the population outside of the census as  can be found. The Times takes the-matter up  and very justly says :  ������ If this doctrine be applied to the statistics in  British   Columbia some  rather strange results  will be obtained.      For instance, Cowichan has  230  school  children,  while   Cariboo,   Lillooet,  East Kootenay have only 211 among them, all  told.     Will the Colonist venture to assert  that  Cowichan  has  nearly as large a white population   as  these four districts.     Its effrontery is  great, but it is surely not equal to a contention  so absurd.   '* Again, Victoria District has 397  school children  and Esquimalt 148, while Yale  has 543.    Are we to believe that the two former  together have as large a white population  as  Yale ?   Yet that is the unavoidable  conclusion  if the  Colonist's peculiar dictum is  to  be accepted.    We need go no further in the way  of  showing the  ab3urdity of offering this school  children argument.      Premier Davie and the  Colonist  must suppose all the people of   the  province  to be as simple as [school children if  they expect it to have any weight.    The   Colonist's readers are  intelligent enough to know  that mining districts like parts of Yale, Cariboo  and  the  Kootenays  invariably  have a   much  smaller proportion  of children in their population   than   is  to  be found in  an  agricultural  region.      Miners  and prospectors   are   seldom  acompanied by large families. It' the conditions  under  which  the people live were the same or  nearly the  same,   all  over the  province, then  there  would  be some basis for the Colonist's  contention,   but there is, in fact,   a  very wide  divergence.    If proper allowance is   made for  the  difference  in   pursuits  it  will be seen that  the equality in  the numbers of school children  enrolled on the Island and the Mainland really  indicates  a greater number  of adults on  the  Mainland.      Therefore, when the Colonist asks,  ." Do these figures indicate that there is a large  pieponderence of  white people  on, the Mainland ?" the answer, truthfully given, must be in  the  affirmative.     The Times  would  most  assured like to believe that the Island's population  is  equal to that of the Mainland, but the facts  are plainly against such a belief.  The whole matter hinges upon the fact that  government scarcely ever in any country takes  the trouble to sufffcient.lvinform itself as to the  conditions and needs of remote districts so long  as they fail to  carry sufficient population to  make them valuable for political purposes.     In  sections  of the country where everything is in  process  of  being carved from   the   rough   as  nature left it, the number of adult male inhabitants  must  necessarily be  largely in excess as  compared  with  older communities.     Yet notwithstanding this   most ideas of legislating for  these  new  places seems .to  be based only on  observations   of   the   conditions   which    exist  entirely away from  the.districts affected, and  where there is but little in common.  The projected visit of Premier Davie, which  is noticed elsewhere, will be hailed by all as a  a new step in the right direction.  Come up and let us have a chance to talk to  you, Mr. Premier.    It will do us all good.  CHICAGO'S HIGHWAYMEN.  Prices for-launches. Migh Enough to Put to Shame a  Mining Camp.  Those who are given to occasionally objecting  to prices charged in new mining communities  far away from the base of supplies should be  interested in the following from an exchange:  At the Fair grounds  in  Chicago   monopoly  covers everything.    The right to sell food and  drink has been farmed out to those who charge  the most extortionate prices, and no waiter will  move without his " tip."   Notice is served that  the States having displays of fruit must not  give the fruit away, since this would infringe  the rights of vendors. All the benches that  were placed in the grounds some time ago have  been removed, and the only chance for tired  persons to sit down is to hire a stool at 10 cents  for a limited period, or pay 75 cents an hour for  a  rolling chair.  To the credit of the newspapers of Chicago, it  must be said that one and all they are waging  war. on this greed and extortion. The Tribune  has printed pages of matter, giving the names  of persons and places notorious for extortionate  methods. The Mail denounces the removal of  the bencnes from the park. The Post advises  every self-respecting man and woman to take  their luncheon basket with them and not be  ashamed to flaunt economy, good sense and  independence in the face of extortion. The  Journal publishes bills showing that luncheon  accounts that should only be 25 cents are $1.50,  and those that should be no more than 50 cents  often run up to $3.50.  Ail  the newspapers plead with  the restaur-'  anteurs  and others to suppress   or moderate  their greed,  and not bring permanent disgrace  on the name of Chicago.

From information received from the Coast it  seems quite probable that within... the near  future the inter-mountain mining regions of  this country will be honored by a visit from  Premier Davie.  The object of the visit so far as can be learned  is for the purpose of gathering general information regarding matters in this part of the country, and to make something of a personal study  as to the immediate needs of the people in the  way of assistance in opening up the country.  " Part of the programme will insure a series of  public meetings, during which 'full discussion  regarding the recent changes in the . mining  laws will be invited, and an endeavor made to  get at the opinions of those most nearly interested as to the utility of those changes.  Now this would appear like the '��������� long felt  want." A great many people, chiefly, it is  painful to state, practical mining men, tiave expressed opinions regarding these amendments  in terms of playful irony. Some have even  gone so far as to say that these amendments  shows plain croppings which would indicate  that they were framed by a set of men who  would not know a cross cut from a dump.  Here then is an opportunity for these scoffers  to receive answers to the many questions which  they have been asking each other ever since the  amendments became law.  LITT1.E EOCAL CHAPTERS.

The wave of excitement is fast settling on the  Duncan River district, and the prospector,  capitalist, tenderfoot, tinhorn gambler and general roustabout are working their, way up to  the Eternal snows in every craft known to man  since the days when the Ark staked a location  on Mount Ararat.  Dug outs, square-ended punts, Peterborb'  boats and canoes, home-made craft of various  design and unlike anything else on top of the  earth or anywhere else, are being towed, poled,  pushed, carried and dragged up the turbulent,  boiling,' log-jammed Duncan, with ail the vim  of stout.arms and promiscuous profanity.  The s.hore of Hauser' or Upper Kootenay Lake  around Duncan City is covered with tents,  brush camps, boats, canoes, and the aforesaid  nondescript conveyance, and the dash of pole  and paddle and splash of oar goes on merrily  from early dawn to dewy eve���������each and all  intent on making a strike arid trying who can  reach the Ultima Thule���������the very highest point  inland���������albeit the snow is still two feet deep on  the upper flats of the Duncan River, and. of  nearly immeasurable depth on the mountains. .  Still up and on they go, the old man of seventy  . side by side with the lad of sixteen.  In the night time numerous camp fires shine  out all along Hauser Lake, the white tents dotting its shores, giving the idea of an inland  summer resort. A little steamer will shortly  churn the waters into foam and awaken the  mountain echoes with-its whistle. f  The Duncan Rivei has an average width of  200 feet, and from the outlet at Kootenay Lake  to its head at Beaver Lake, is some eighty or  ninety miles in length. From Kootenay to  Hauser Lake, some fourteen miles, the numerous log jams and rapid current render navigation difficult, tedious and dangerous. In flood  time, about the middle of June, this portion of  the Duncan becomes well-nigh impassable. The  seething mass of 'water .spreads over the low  banks of the river and rushes and roars among  the trees. Poling is almost an impossibility. A  full week has been taken over this bad water at  this season, and numerous shipwrecks'attest the  difficulties and danger.  All this is now happily avoided by a good  horse trail from the head,of Kootenay Lake,  which, starting at the townsite of Argenta,  reaches smooth water in eight miles, at Duncan  City. Through Hauser Lake, ten miles to the  north end of the lake, then ten miles moie of  river to the log jam, and first portage. This  point is really the head of decent navigation on  the Duncan, although canoes go.up eight miles  farther to East Fork, and some a few miles  beyond to the canon. The waters of these upper  reaches are. very swift, and the frequent portages prevent useful or profitable means of  transit for light loads and the lightest of the  crafts.  Hauser, or as  it is incorrectly called on the  Government  maps,   Upper Kootenay Lake, is  about as pretty  a little sheet of water as one  can find anywhere.    It  is some  ten miles long  by 1 to 1_- miles  wide,   with its bold shore outline,    of "timbered   bluff   and   background   of  serrated snowy peaks reflected in the deep blue  of its waters, it is very hard to beat in the way  of sylvan beauty.      At its' southern end, on its  east shore,   a flat timbered bench juts into the  lake, forming with its curved sandy foreshore a  miniature Bay of Naples.    The view from  this  flat,  known  as   Duncan   City   is   charmingly  pretty.   North and east lie the timbered slopes,  SECURE  THEM  AT  TURNER  BROS'.  Music Store.

To the west the  valley of the Lardo, and its hills with their  perpetual snows, the river winding like a silver  ribbon through canon and rocks ; to the south  the great Kootenay Lake and the delta of the  Duncan, picturesque meadow land and wooded  slopes.  The shores of Hauser Lake are generally  abrupt, and with the exception of Duncan City  fiat there is no level land along its borders.  The great divide between the Lardo silver  ledges and the Duncan gold fields narrows  almost to a point some four miles below Hauser  Lake. It is only one mile from Duncan City to  the Lardo river, a natural pass about one  hundred feet above the lake affords an easy  means of communication with Healey Creek  and the Trout Lake country. This route has  been explored and a trail will be commenced  within a week to connect the Lardo and Duncan mining grounds. This, in connection with  the trail now made from Argenta on Kootenay  Lake, will ensure a ready means of access to  either camp at any season of the year, between  Healey Creek camp in the Lardo country and  the Duncan River valley and Kootenay Lake.  It  may  be somewhat  premature  to make a  prediction  as  to  the future of the Lardo silver  rinds and  the Duncan   gold   prospects.      One  thing  is  certain,   it  has  been established that  rich ledges exist.    Already rock assaying $23 in  free gold has been discovered on Duncan town-  site, and other prospects, varying from $1100 of  the Golden Eagle to  $500 on the Hauser Creek,  attest the unmistakable richness of the Duncan  gold fields.    Color can  be found in every creek  emptying   into the     river,   and   good   placer  ground  has  been  located On  the mainstream  and some of its tributaries.     In   the Lardo section  rich  discoveries  were made last season in  silver, and from the fact that many prominent  officials  of ,the Canadian   Pacific railway and  several M.P.'s are interested  in that country it  will  undoubtedly  be well prospected this year.  Altogether, we can confidently predict a season  of.great success, and despite the late spring and  very hard winter, West Kootenay will make, as  it already has in  the  Slocan, another world's  record of wonderful discovery in 1893���������gold in  the Duncan and silver in the Lardo.

B.   0���������  SATUEDAY,  MAY 20,   1893,  A COMPAEATIVE AKQITMENT  ITPOE WHICH PEEDIOTIOITS AS TO BEITISH  COLUMBIA'S GEOWTH IS BASED.  A  Glance at the Record of the Past���������Br. I>awson's  tihle Outline of liis Reasons for Believing in the  Superiority of this Region as Compared with  those further South.  It is quite probable that at no time in the history of British North America has the attention  of the civilized world been so closely directed to  any particular portion   of that  vast area as it  "' now is to the mining regions~6f British,Columbia.    The history of mining industries in North  America contains many wondrous chapters, the  opening ones  of which  are  lost  in   the  mists  that   cling along the  rugged,  ranges   of   Old  Mexico,   but  it is safe to say that no   brighter-  one has been written than that  which  British  Columbia is just beginning to spread over the  records.  Starting  with  the  discovery  of placer gold  along the tributaries of the Fraser river in 1857  a'glance down  the record shows  successively  <      Cariboo, Omenica, and Cassiar, from which for  years poured forth a steady stream of  " yellow  dust," running higher and higher into the millions.    This stream was only checked when the  bed rock receded to such depths below the surface as to  make it impossible to dispose of the  water which filtered  clown through the  loose  ,   overlying material.  Fortunately^at a time when, having enriched  * the world by the addition of some $50,000,000 in  gold, these regions began to decline, the extending of rail connection with the far east, through  another part of the province opened a new  section, which along different lines bids fair to  eclipse even the old brilliant record..  Beginning in 1SS6 with the chance discovery  of the Silver King, the fame of which brought  hundreds eager prospectors, rich in the experience gained in many a "lead camp," from  Mexico to Montana, the discoveries have leaped  from point to point like a forest fire', and still  continue to spread widely and rapidly.  The old lead camps had in many instances  yielded only enough by hard toil to pay for  running when silver by some vagaries of the  market was " up," and were often closed down  or worked at a loss when a fall of a few points  in silver cut them off. What wonder then that  they have eagerly turned to follow the fortunes  of a section where silver might go down to 50  without shutting down anything.  The chief difficulty in the way of the rapid  development of the country has been the lack  of adequate means of transportation. Many of  the claims could only be reached by difficult  trails supplemented by wagon roads not. of the  best. Supplies have been difficult to obtain,  and still more has it been to ship anything like  a quantity of ore.  These difficulties are being overcome with an  energy and rapidity at once startling to the  casual observer and serving to convince the  world of the confidence felt in the ultimate success of this region by those who have given all  the circumstances their careful consideration  and are backing their judgment by the investment of their capital.  The coming twelve months will witness an  amount of railroad building throughout the  mining regions of British Columbia which in  itself will form a weighty argument as to  the  richness of the country which they are providing with transportation and outlets.  Of the ore bodies of this region Dr. George M.  Dawson, assistant director of the Geological  Survey of Canada, says in a paper read before  the Royal Colonial Institute, the proceedings of  which appear in the Western World for May :  ' Within about five years a very great number  of metalliferous deposits, chiefly silver ores,  have been discovered and claims taken out  upon them. Several growing mining centres  and little towns have been established ; roads,  trails and bridges have been made, steamers  have been placed on the Kootenay Lake and  the Upper Columbia river, and a short line of  railway has been built to between the lake and  the river to connect their navigable waters.  The immediate centre of interest in regard to  mining development in British Columbia has,  in fact, for the time being, almost entirely  changed from the principal old placer mining  districts to the new discoveries of silver-bearing  veins. So far as they have yet been examined  or opened up, the metalliferous deposits of the  Kootenay country give every evidence of exceptional value. They consist chiefly of argentiferous galena, holding silver to the value of  forty or fifty dollars to several hundred dollars  to the ton.  ���������3:-   *  *  Circumstances,, wThich have unfortunately for  the last few years retarded the development of  the Kootenay country, are now happily passing  away ; aud there can be no reasonable doubt  that in the next year or two this country will  establish its place as oiYe of the most important,  (Continued on next page.)  -RTOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT THE     '  City of Kootenay Land and Improvement Company  (Limited Liability)  Intend to apply at the expiration of three months from  the first publication of this notice for an order-in-Council  changing the name of the said Company to " The  Kootenay Land and Improvement Company, Limited  Liability."

So far as England is concerned the actual capital invested in this district has been small. The English investor  would rather pay half a million for some property which, as demonstrated in a prospectus,  will produce a good annual rate of interest,  than embark a comparatively small sum in a  promising venture. But to a man with some  knowledge of mines and mining and the command of. even a limited amount of capital, who  will visit and live in the district himself for a  time, the opportunities for profitable investment are, I believe to-day, excellent.  *      -ir  , In conclusion I wish to draw attention to one  or two  ruling features  of the actual situation  which  are  too  important  to be   left   without,  mention:���������The    Cofdilleran    belt,    or   Rocky  Mountain region  of  Nbrth  America, forming  the  wide  western  rim  of  the continent, has,  \vhenever it has   been   adequately   examined,,  proved to be rich in  the precious metals as well  as  in other ores.- ; This  has  been   the case in  Mexico   and   in   the   Western   States   of   the  American union.    Though  some parts of   this  ore-bearing region are undoubtedly richer than  others, generally speaking it  is  throughout a  metalliferous country.    The mining of placer or  alluvial gold deposits has in most cases occurred  in   advance  of railway  construction ; but this  industry  has always  proved to be more or less  transitory in   its   character,   and   has  almost  always  been an indication of future and more  permanent developments  of a different kind.  Placer gold mining has, in fact, often been continued for years    and  then   abaudoned,   long  before  the gold and silver-bearing veins in the  same country have been discovered and opened  up.    This  latter  and more permanent phase of  mining has  followed the construction of roads  and  railways, and the series of conditions thus  outlined  are  repeating  themselves   in British  Columbia to-day.  There _ is no reason whatever to believe that  the particular portions of British Columbia now  for the first time opened to mining by means of  the Canadian Pacific Railway, are richer in ores  than other parts of the province. On the contrary, what has already been said of the Cariboo  district affords prima facie evidence of an  opposite character. The Province of British  Columbia uslon'e, from south-east to north-west,  includes a length of over eight hundred miles of  the Codilleran region ; and, adding to this the  the further extension of the same region comprised within the boundaries of the Dominion  of Canada as* a whole, its entire length in Canada is between twelve or thirteen hundred  miles. This is almost identical with the whole  length of the same region contained within the  United States, from the southern boundary  with Mexico to the northern.with Canada.  Circumstances have favored the development  of the mines of the Western States, but it. is, as  nearly as may be, certain that "the northern  half of the similar region will eventually prove  equal in richness to the southern, and that  when the mines of these Western States may  have passed their zenith of productiveness,  those of the north will be still increasing in this  respect.  connection  it may be well  to draw  to the  fact  that  Dr. Dawson's  able  in  direct line with the verdict of all  well posted mining  men  who  have given this  country an investigation. A mining expert who  has for years followed the fortunes of western  silver  in almost every camp from old Mexico to  British Columbia recently stated  that he was  much surprised to tiud such a similarity in   the  composition and formation of the ore bodies of  this region and those of Mexico.    These latter  bodies   have  been   worked to a profit for many  generations by the most primitive methods, but  still give  evidence  of being practically   inexhaustible in extent.

Over the Mountains.  One of the chief drawbacks to the development of a mining country like this .is the  extreme difficulty of securing adequate power  for mechanical purposes. The majority of the  claims must necessarily for a time be reached  by means of more or less difficult trails over  which it is impossible to transport the ordinary  makes of boiler and engines.  This problem now  seems to be very satisfactorily solved by the  construction of a'sectional boiler wThich can be  reduced to' shapes and weights which makes it  quite easy to pack over trails.  Mr. James Kelly, of Ottawa, is the originator  of the device, and the first order for placing the  same  was  received from the Wellington mine.  The parts  were packed in cases of some live  hundred pounds each and  transported to the  end  of the wagon road some three miles from  the mine.    Here began a trail through nine feet  of snow, and inside of three days from the time  the cases arrived at the end of the wagon road  the outfit, consisting of alOh.p. boiler, diamond  drill, a sinking pump, rods and tools, were upon  . the claim and at work.     The cost of transporting, the'outfit up the trail to the mine, which is  at an elevation of 3,500 feet, was not over $50.  The construction or* the boiler is very simple.  Instead of the usual rivets the shell plates are  bolted  together, the requisite tightness being  secured  by placing the head of the bolt inside  and winding it with gasket before screwing up  to place.    The crown sheets are kept in place by  three tubes run through three perforated tubes  placed in the interior of the boiler.     The tubes  are flanged at  one end  and threaded at the  other and  the crown  sheet  at  the fire end is  countersunk to receive the flange.    The links of  the smoke stack go over like a stove pipe and  are fastened like the shell plates of the boiler.  Round iron rods replace the cast grate bars  at a saving of over e'ghty per cent, m weight.  These are easily replaced, and as the fuel is gen  erally wood, last quite  well. /  About-2,000 pounds covers the weight of a 10  h.p. boiler, and the heaviest pieces reduced for  packing are 160 pounds each.  Ail OpJical Beliasioxi.  Passengers on board the steamer Nelson have  been  much disgusted of late by a large mass of  apparently  meteoric   origin,   which  is in  the  habit of whizzing by them on almost every trip  in from the Ferry.      The object, which passed  so swiftly that it seemed  to only lightly touch  at long intervals the tops of the highest waves,  was ascertained to he a new, fast and commodious steamer just put on the run. Consumed  with envy at such a rate of speed some of the  patrons of the steamer Nelson took passage on  the new steamer. Imagine their feelings when  they discovered that they were going in the  same direction as the Nelson, and that the  cause of their speed as viewed from the Nelson  had been the usual optical delusion which causes  the bank of a river to run by while the boat is  apparently standing still.

" Any persons who have taken all necessary  l^gal steps to acquire by purchase any portion  of such land so released from reserve will be  permitted to complete their purchase upon compliance with the further requirements of the  "Land Act."  The above, which appears in the B. O. Grazette  will  doubtless  recall  to the minds of many the  stormy scenes  witnessed  in  Nelson  when the  reserve, was first announced.    ,  ,   The taking off of the reserve will enable Dr.  E. C Arthur, Wilson Hall, and Alfred Hall, to  complete the purchase on a pre-emption made  by  them  on   Oct.  31, ��������� 189L   of 160 acres at the  head of Slocan Lake.  Referring to the lifting of the reserve Dr.  Arthur, in, conversation with a Miner reporter .  said :���������'��������� We procecled, after the pre-emption, to  complete the conditions of purchase under the  Land Act. On Dec. 31, however, the Government clapped on a reserve on all land within ten  miles of Slocan Lake. As there were three in  the party we made three pre-emptions, the  others being at the foot of the lake and at Carpenter Creek respectively. The pre-emption at  the foot of the Jake we decided to abandon.  On March 17 the Government cancelled the  reserve on all the lands except!wo blocks, each  one mile.square, one at the mouth of Carpenter  Creek, and the other at the head of the lake.  This reserve still included the two claims which  we were endeavoring to establish. The Carpenter Creek reserve was cancelled in September  last. We have been trying since to get the  Government to lift the reserve off the head of  the lake. Now they have lifted it, but only off  that portion which is comparatively valueless.  The pre-emption was made chiefly to secure  some thirty acres of good fiat land, but this the  Goverment has withheld from our pre-emption  but has decided to allow us to pre-empt the  mountain -pide.  We will doubtless complete the conditions of  sale on what has been left us, in the hope of  getting out the money we put into the land  already.  COR. BAKER AND   WARD   STREETS.

Kaslo, B. C, May 19���������The good .people of  Kaslo seem to be having any amoifnt of fun  over the question of providing some more satisfactory means of landing in the town.  Passengers  whose  early education in the art  of  walking a tight-rope,  has  been   somewhat  neglected,  have   been  troubled   sometimes  to  make their way across the narrow and unstable  string of boards, which afford the only means of  escape from the steamers. One inventive genius  even went so far as  to suggest the establish-  .   ment  of an apparatus like that of a life-saving  station,  by means of which a rocket carrying a  life-line  could be fired out to the boats, and a  travelling basket rigged  up   which would put  people ashore, safely.  ; The first step toward the solution of the problem was rna.de some days ago when the Nelson  towed in a floating wharf from Bonner's Ferry.  This was proudly anchored at the foot of Third  street, -with due nautical honor, and for a short  time all went well. But alas for the result of  human envy. cThis move was viewed with a  jealous eye by the rival steamship people, and  they demauded the use of the new.wha'rfj and  that too without the transfer of any legal tender  to the party of the first part. The offer was  declined with scorn, and a close watch is being  kept on the raft.  In the meantime the railroad people have  casually mentioned several times that they may  build a wharf down near the foot of Fifth street.  This has even gone so far as.to set dark rumors  of a contract to that effect being let, but so far  they have not been confirmed. The citizens now  have the matter in hand and a fund of some  $1500 or $1600 has been raised which it is said  will be invested in a floating wharf large enough  to accommodate a warehouse. So that it is safe  to say that Kaslo will have sometime in the  near future a wharf of some kind.  On Saturday evening the Kaslo wagon road  committee will hold a meeting for the purpose  of considering what steps shall be taken to put  the road into passible condition between here  and Bear lake. Mr. S. S. Bailey has been appointed to get up a gang of 20 or, 25 men which  will begin to work out from the town at once.  - The, $Wfi0O received -������rom the Government will  be spe^rttothis way and in extending the road  up as far g|_f Cody creek.  The snow is- rapidly, disappearing from the  .foothills and Inspecting-paFties are being made  iip and are leaving town almost every day bound  for the upper country.  Doubtless by this time you are aware of an  increase in the newspaper family in this place.  The infant has been christened the "Claim" and  at last accounts the author of its being was doling as well as could be expected and will no  doubtfully recover in time. The new infant  has not yet overcame the first surprise of finding itself in existence yet, and is,rather wobbly,  and prone to grab at things quite out of reach,  but bless its little heart, its dad thinks its the  finest infant on earth, though rumor hath it  that this is not the first.  The good people of this town held a love feast  recently, in which it was hinted that there must  have been some recent difficulty between them  and certain Nelson business men. Have you  heard anything about it, and if so please telf me  what the trouble is, as no , one here seems to  know exactly. The question is does Nelson's  charter entitle the Nelson members to take in  the Kaslo members.  It gives me pleasure to state that the strike in  the Kaslo-band is about over., Nearly all the  members have consented to play the same selection at the same time. Though some obstinate members still hold to the theory of "Individual Selection" and Darwin's "Survival of  the Loudest" it is hoped they may be won over  in time.  Thanking you for your prompt answer to the  questions in my last letter I am yours, etc.  A Flat Minor.  NEW BSNVEB NOTES.  Several gentlemen who have recently come in  from New Denver and Four Mile City report a  very favorable condition of affairs up in that  section. The' trail in is being put into good  shape by a gang of men, and one or two of the  bridges damaged-.by ���������.'recentfreshets are being  replaced. There seems to be good reason to predict a very active season in that part of the  country.  An experienced mining man who has spent  about a year in that vicinity expressed un-  bounded faith in the future of its mineral  claims. This verdict is that while scarcely  enough work has been done to demonstrate beyond doubt the exact nature"-of the ore bodies  yet the the surface showings are so great that  the amount of ore practically in sight seems to  be sufficient to keep the country going for some  -years to come.  The Reed and Robinson group is an example  of this. Here the average of the top showings,  which are very extensive, will run about 150  ounces.  The Vancouver and-Mountain Boomer claims  are reported to be in good condition, as is the  Mountain'Chief some 2| miles from New Denver. The same may be said of a'number of  claims in this vicinity many of which are awaiting the opening of the season in order to resume  work. ..  With regard to railroad construction those ���������  who have been over the country thoroughly  seem to be of the opinion that the natural ad-,  vantages of a route out by way of Nakusp are  much greater than by the other way and that  when the Nakusp road is built it will secure the  bulk of the traffic.  D0LAN" [RESPONSIBLE E0E IT  HE EUNS  AGAINST JOHNSTONE BUT FINDS  TIME TO APOLOGIZE.  The trsae Inwardness of the Ifcow SSe&ween fclie Canadian and American Customs Officials at Bonner's  Ferry���������There  are  sonic  Officials  too  JTealous of  Neglected _>utics. .      '  Like all other.squabbles, there are two sides to  the recent trouble between the customs officials  at Bonner's Ferry. As is usually the case the  man who gets his story into the papers first,  lays the blame upon the other.  George Johnstone, that Customs official, who  according to the, first account of the scrap, was  so officious-asto have a desire to teach the U.S.  customs officer his duties, was in Nelson Tburs-c  day, and in an interview with a Miner reporter  gave the following version of the affair :  "About two weeks ago I notified the officers  of both  the Nelson and Spokane that all goods  carried  on the  boats  from  Bonner's  Ferry to  British ports would have to be properly entered  before thev reached the customs house at the  Boundary Line. On the day previous to the  sailing of the State of Idaho, her first trip, I  '���������'went on board the boat at Bonner's Ferry, to  notify the captain, in the same terms, as I had  the other steam-ship companies, and/shortly  afterwards Dolair Came on board the Nelsoii  where I was, an d began a busing m e, ch'argin g  me with interfering:'with him in the discharge  of his duties. When his rage had blown over I  explained to him what I had said to the captain  of the Idaho, and lie apoligized, and admitted  that J was quite right. As to the row between  Rykert and myself, that story is made out of  whole cloth.  "Owing to the great volume of business done  during the month of April," continued Mr.  Johnstone, "I have been obliged to stop off at  Kaslo, but my stay there will altogether depend  upon the time necessary to catch up with back  work." _^   The Naxt. &rand 3nvy.  Deputy   Sheriff   Robinson  is   busy just. now  serving notifications    on  grand   jurors   to   sit  at Nelson on the 30th inst.    Among  the numerous items  of  business  wilh whiehtheywill.be  compelled, by virtue of their office to deal, will  be that of several forms of the social evil.  Some  of the prominent citizens of this district have  come  to  the  conclusion  that it is about time  steps should betaken to at least regulate, and if  possible suppress,  the institutions of ill repute  fo the  district.    With   this idea  in   mind they  wilt fi&il the attentionof the grand jury to these  plae.e������ and ask to haye  them  attended to.   A  petition to that effect is now in hand.    If is understood that the Kasio comique is on the black  list which will include all the local houses of ill  fame.  .> i  ��������� _.
