NELSON  BEITISH   COLUMBIA,  SATUEDAY,  NOVEMBEE  5,   1892.  A YEAE  KAIHWAW   DEVELOPMENT   OF   WEST   HLOOTENAV.  The railway development of West Kootenay  is a knotty subject.    It is the knottiest subject  we ever handled.    There are 2500 men  in  this  country   at. least,  and  we do  not exaggerate  when we state that there are 2500 different railway schemes afloat, discounting those which  the authorities of the 0. P; R., the Spokane &  Northern and the Great Northern may have in  their hearts.    The people of Vancouver want to  pull the ore traffic of this country to Vancouver,  the Spokane people want to pull it to Spokane,  and each of the inhabitants of West Kootenay  wants to pull it to his particular townsite, (we  do not refer, of course, to the townsite which  he owns���������he is sure to own at least one���������but to  the townsite he lives in) and the C. P. R. wants  to pull it���������a higher power alone knows where.  It is with the greatest diffidence we approach  this  subject  at all.    In making one friend the  risk of making 2499 enemies is to be carefully,  considered.    But  to speak seriously, there are  only two questions to be asked and answered  and the problem is solved, "What  is  the best  market for our ores?" and "What is the,easiest   method   of   getting them   there?"   As  to  the first of these  questions this may  be said,  that  at present there is only one market for  West Kootenay ores, and that is on the American side of the line.    Will there ever.be a domestic   market?     That  entirely" "depends.     If,  cheap fuel can be shipped into West Kootenay.  and smelting made a profitable industry on the  spot, there will be a good market for the ores  right on Kootenay lake.    But there is one thing  certain.    The C P. R. and all its hosts cannot  divert the mineral  traffic of  this .country  to  their present main line. ~ Their vacillating, feeble  and shuffling policy of this year has arisen from  the fact  that they thought they could.    They  cannot do it.    To drag the ore of this country,  at great profit to themselves?, to some impracticable if not mythical point in the north is impossible in the face of the ready made market/  and easy outlet to the south.    We believe that  the C. P. R. officials are now convinced of this j  fact; if they are riot, they ought to be.    They  have had several rude reminders of it this summer.    Kaslo has been built up and is prospering  because of its southern outlet; Nelson is looking  to  its southern outlet; Nakusp, that puny infant of the  C. P. R.'s has almost had*the life  crushed out of it by the obstacles in the way of  hauling ore north, and even Nakusp has never  haudled a pound of ore except to ship it south.  Slocan lake has been a bye-word and a laughing  stock to  the inhabitants of Kaslo because its  only present outlet is to the north.    In the face  of all this, if there are any men in power over  the policy of the C. P. R. who still believe that  ore from this country can be shipped over the  main line, they must be afflicted with incipient  brain   softening;    The  question  then,  resolves  itself into  this:    Is the C. P. R.  to  develop a  local market for West Kootenay  ores; or are  those ores to be shipped oyer American lines to  American smelters?   That is the clear issue and  there is no wi&y of getting round it.    It is obviously to the @. P. R.'s advantage to establish a  local market.    Its  directors and chiefs, if they  can claim to be anything more than red tape  officials, must look at  West   Kootenay not so  much as a country likely to yield a large mineral  traffic, but as a "rich and promising section of  Canada whose general prosperity will directly  and indirectly bring large returns to the company's coffers.    And they must  be aware that  given a centre, given smelting a cheap and profitable industry, given a terminal point with facilities for the distribution.of supplies, and West  Kootenay must become a country whose internal  development  will  stimulate  the whole  of  Canada, lead to the opening up of Britisn Co  lumbia's rich mineral deposits in other places,  and result in a great increase of business to thg  railway system of the company.    But what apparently they will not see, cannot be made to  see, is that a policy of decentralisation in West  Kootenay means the loss of her "wealth to Canada.    Let them build a line from Nakusp to the  head of Slocan lake, and what will be the result?   The line may handle some of the Slocan  ore,  but only to ship it  to Little Dalles and  thence to American smelters.    Such a line as  this would be .the consummation of the C P.  R.'s folly in West Kootenay.   Isolated and solitary, it could not for a single day compete with  the  water carriage route to Nelson  by  Kaslo  and then south to the smelters over the Nelson  & Fort Sheppard   railway;  and   yet  a whole  season has been lost in the fond contemplation  of this useless road, apparently under the delusion that it was an important link in a chain  between   the   mines and Revelstoke,  a   chain  which, were it complete, could not stand for a  moment against the strain caused by the completion of American roads.    By all means let  us have connection with Revelstoke, but let us  first have a rational system of marketing our  ores, and that is what a connection with Revelstoke would not give  us.    Of course we  must  not be understood to say that a road from Nakusp to Slocan lake would not be a great, boon  to West Kootenay (and the same is true of a  road from Revelstoke to the Arrow lakes);  but  it would only be a boon through giving us better  communication  with  our  eastern   centres and  .better facilities  for shipping in goods; but so  far as shipping out ore goes,  neither of those  roads would do so much as touch the problem.  What then is the C. P. R. to do?   Its only salvation is to inaugurate a vigorous policy of centralisation in West Kootenay.    It must give us  a centre; to  that  centre it   must  bring  cheap  fuel,  and   for  that  centre  it  must  provide   a  market for the finished products of the country.  It must give the count ry a heart and an arterial  system through which the country's volume of  trade will flow and ebb to and from the centre  of vitality.  "DIVINE   SERVICES   UNDER   DIFFICULTIES.  '~  The rev. A. J. Reid has been on a pastoral  tour through the Slocan country,, and on his  way to New Denver held a service at the town  of Watson. There were 40 or 50 of 'the boys'  present, and as some of them had been selling  claims lately, they were having a high old time.  The service, held in a saloon, went-all right until the part of the prayer book was reached  where the Prince of Wales is commended to the  mercies of a Divine Providence. Here mr. Reid  was very solemnly interrupted by a prospector:  "Stop right there, partner, You can pray for  the Queen���������that's all right���������she's a woman ; but  praying for that���������������������������don't go." He then went  up to the bar counter, and scratched the Prince  of Wales'name out of the prayer book with a  pencil, saying: "There! I've knocked him out."  Now we all have our opinions as to the private  character of the Prince, but the Prince as a private gentleman and the Prince of Wales . as  prospective head of the British government, are  quite different. Suppose Grover Cleveland,  whose record is, we understand, not quite immaculate, were elected president of the United  States, we imagine it would go hard with any  one who publicly insulted the United States in  his person. And the British crown, apart from  the character of the man who wears it, is the  symbol of theliberty, unity and power of theBrit-  ish Empire, and drunk or. sober, the__,boys in  this country should remember that no disrespect  to it goes. In this particular instance, too, we  would point out the unfairness of erasing the  name of the Prnce from the prayer book, inasmuch as the worse is his private character, so  much the more may he be presumed to need the  benefit of prayer.  TO   !$E,   OK   NOT   TO   B5E.  The word municipal is derived from muni-  cipium, a town in Italy, which possessed the  right of Roman citizenship, but which was governed by its. own laws. From the municipia to  Nelson is a big jump, but it is justified by  the facit that as these .towns seem to have  made a success of self-government, so it  may be well for the inhabitants of Nelson to  consider the matter of  incorporation, and to  consider whether or no they are strong enough  to manage their own affairs. It will be our business in this article not to discuss the advisability or non-advisability of the taking of such a  step, but to give as clear a statement as we are  able of the process to be gone through to obtain  incorporation and of the powers vested Hi the  council after incorporation has become an accomplished fact. There are two kinds of municipalities���������a city or town municipality. and a  township or district municipality. Of these  the former is governed by a mayor and council,  the latter by a reeve and council. A city or  town may be incorporated on compliance with  the following conditions:  (a) A petition signed by the owners of more  than one-half in value,of the real estate to be  included within the proposed-.cijty^ljuiits.  (b) The area of the municipality shall not  ex ceed 2000 acres. . *>  (c) That there shall reside within the boundaries of therdity or town 100 male British subjects of the full age 21 years.  The petition must also show the total number ���������  of persons .entitled to petition, the assessed  value of their real estate, and the.\ixames and  total number of men who are British subjects,,  and who-have been and are residents; for at least  six months before the date of the first signature to. the petition within the^boundarfes of  the land sought to be incorporated as a city or  town. A township or district municipality may  be created on the receipt, by the lieutenant-  government, of a petition to that effect, signed  by a majority of the registered land owners and  pre-emptors who have resided on their preemptions for a year, but it is stated that no  land that has been divided^ into town lots, of  which more than 20 lots have been sold, shall be  included in the proposed municipality unless all  the conditions appertainirig to the incorporation  of a city municipality shall have been first complied with, so that it is necessary for us to take  into consideration Only the method of the incorporation of a city or town.  A city council shall consist of a mayor and  not more than 12 nor less than 5 aldermen, who  wield very extensive powers, and have control  of nea \yall taxation in the municipality. They  can grant aid by means of a bonus or by exemption from taxation for 10 years to any manufactory, railroad or canal which is (it may be only  partly)-within their limits. In order to provide  the funds needed to carry on the affairs of a  town the council has the power to tax land and  real property and improvements, and to issue  license to nearly every discription of tradesman  and to bankers, lawyers, conveyancers, land-  agents, and auctioneers, and to express, telephone, electric light, or tramway companies.  It would seem that if Nelson were once incorporated there would be no dfficulty in raising  funds sufficient to'make a much better town of  her than she has been, or ever will be, whilst  under the fostering care of the government or  the C. P. R. During the past year we believe  that a great deal more mon-ay has been collected  in Nelson than has been spent on her improvements. As matters now stand, the C. P. R.  seems to hold the balance of power and is in a  position to say "yes" or "no" to the question  "shall we manage ourselves."  Sii-nck Et Rich.  On the Victoria, one of the Silver King group  a rich vein of gold quartz was discovered while,  assessment work was being done.  r���������  fBanxBKiamtm 2  THE  Mil"-EE:    ifELSOST,   B.   0.,  SATUEDAY,  "TOVEMBEE   5,  1892.  ,���������__*_______   __T-A,TTJ_E_-___X-  m-P-PiTST.; ipo jzktt  '���������-.���������������������������.������������������r���������  .J���������',���������:���������������  !������-'**;  ___VBu_)  : "The -above townsite*-litis: Uvo never failing  streams ���������-of'���������:��������� purer: mountain water running  through it, affording* sufficient   water power  .������������������������������������ FOR* GO^GENTRATiiN-G   WORKS  and city purposes.  p__  ___   W  g_a  IS NEARLY   COMPLETED,  And will-be-Ready to receive guests by the  20th' of this month.

Some days since a syndicate of Victoria and  Vancouver capitalists bought 153 lots in Kaslo  on the south side of the creek. This nearly  exhausts the lots already platted in the town-  site, and arrangements are being made to have  some more, land surveyed into lots at once.  John Houston collected,, in an hour or two on  Thursday afternoon, an ample number of subscribers for telephones to justify him in extending the line to-Kaslo. He promises us telephone  communication with Ainsworth and Nelson in  two weeks.  J. S. Retallack is selling lots in Watson as  fast as he can offer them. Considerably over.  100 are already sold, nearly all to men who know  the country well, and who are all convinced  that its great natural advantages of position  will make it a real good camp. All the lots on  the main street, lip which the wagon road goes,  were sold in the first dav or two and are now  being.resold at  an advance of from $25 to $100.  Messrs. O. P. Garrison and Marks have bonded  the Montezuma for .$25,000, $3,000 paid down.  We shall soon see now whether the enormous  surface showing on this claim is the apex of a  big lead, or whether it is only a blow-out. In  any case the bonders have great confidence in  the result, and as practically all the mines that  have been worked so far have improved with  depth, they are certainly justified in their faith.

They are waiting  for the Nakusp sleigh road to go through in  order that they may get in their saw mill.  They returned to Slocan this morning.  The Miner has been making careful enquiries  with a view to finding out if any inhabitant of  Nelson was unable to open his front door* on  Wednesday or Thursday evening. So far without result.

Jack was wanted under a warrant, for making a gun play in  Carney &.Barrett's store some time back. But  it appears that he stayed up on his claim on  Hall creek till a few days ago, when he returned  to Nelson and after spending Sunday in the  saloons under the very nose of the police, he  went up to..Kaslo, apparently with the intention of laying for mr. Carney there. "When mr.  Carney arrived in Kaslo on Wednesday night,  Beudwin sought him out and attacked him  savagely with a knife. A man rushed in to mr.  Carney's assistance and got a stab in the leg for  his pains. Mr. Carney was badly cut over the  hand. . The Kaslo people were alive to the  situation and a reward of $250.00 was offered  for Boudwin's apprehension. Within two hours  he was safe under lock and key and is now in  gaol. It reflects great credit on the citizens of  Kaslo that, they so promptly secured the peace  of their town and their credit as a law-abiding  community. Kaslo has no constables, Nelson  has two, and yet after a notorious offence in  Carney & Barrett's store, Beudwin was allowed  to be at large for weeks, while in Kaslo he did  not get two hours rope. The contrast is very  marked,, and does not, we are sorry to say, redound to Nelson's credit.  Tlie Nelson ITelepSaoi-C ���������o__-_?a-_y.  This  company held its first annual general  meeting on Saturday the 29th ultimo.    The accounts for the year were passed.   It was decided  to commence the extension of the line to Kaslo  at once; thus completing-the connection with  all lake points excepting Pilot Bay.    As a cable  to tliis place would cost at least $2500, and not-  more than 3-'instruments be used there, it was  agreed that   the   prospective  income   did   not  justify the expenditure required.    The central  office  of the  company will  be moved from its  present location to Teetzel's drug store.    John  Houston   was  re-elected   president,   G*.   O.   Buchanan was elected vice-president and treasurer  and  John  Houston,   G.  O. Buchanan,  captain  George Hay ward, Eel. Atherton, C. W. Busk, F.  S. Barnard and John Tolson were appointed directors.    Non-subscribers who wish to use the  line  will  be  charged  25  cents for speaking to  Ainsworth  and  50 cents  for connection   with  Kaslo, whilst the rent of instruments in private  houses will be reduced to $2.50 a month.    The  directors passed a rule to the effect that.-before  any payment could be made it would be necessary  to  have  the  signatures  of at  least  3  directors on the cheque, on signature, that is, in  addition to those of the president and treasurer.  ���������Flac Nelson in Tn-osaMe.

One of the firemen  climbed down the wheel to rescue a foot-plank  and proved the wheel to be loose by being lowered into the water. He climbed up it again,  and again it revolved and gave him a cold  douche, a very pleasant kind of treadmill exercise on a wintry morning.  AINSWORTH, B. C.

It would seem that the people on the Coast  are at length beginning to realize the necessity  of doing something to attract the trade of  West Kootenay. Up to the present they have  been content to "open their mouths and shut  their eyes and see what West Kootenay has  sr-ent them." But a sudden change in their  policy is noticeable.' A meeting of the Vancouver Board, of Trade was called for Tuesday evening last, at which the subject for discussion was  to be the necessity of taking some measures to  prevent our trade from going over the border.  A detailed report of the meeting is not yet to  hand, but it is well known that the Nakusp  wagon road was one of the matters most  earnestly dwelt upon. ;  We have not far to look for the reason of  this. Some of the shareholders of the Nakusp  JJand and Improvement Co. are, unless we are  much mistaken, also members of the Vancouver  Board of Trade. Nakusp begins to show- signs  of instability, and at once the Board of Trade  makes strenuous ett'orts to prop it .up. Quite  right, too. But if the Board imagines that they  can secure our trade,, by helping along the  Nakusp wagon road, and by that alone, they  are vastly in error.        ���������',  The Nakusp route will never be the most  popular road by. which to ship ore from Slocan.  The grade is unfavorable, and by the time that  the wagon road is completed, mine owners will  have become, to some extent, accustomed to  ship their ore by other roads, and it will be  necessary to convince them that there exists a  I'oad far more favorable for transport than the  one to which they have been used, before they  will consent to make any change.  The great volume of '.traffic to and from the  Slocan country, at present, makes use of the  Kaslo trail, and some considerable time must  elapse before Nakusp can be in a position to  make a bid for public favor, and when that time  comes she must be able to offer inducements to  shippers which no other route can present, or  her efforts to secure traffic .will be useless. This  superiority the Naksnp road cannot, and never  will be able, to show. There is too much uphill work about it.          The only method of ingress and egress to and  from the Slocan country remaining for consideration is the Slocan river trail. This we  have always considered the natural way by  which  to  reach  the  mining country.    And in  spite of the fact that other roads seem, during  the past summer, to have done most of the  business, we siVA hold fo our original opinion,  viz., that the Slocan route offers advantages for  the shipment of ore that no other route can  offer. The chief objection to its use has been  the number of trans-shipments needful. This  is a matter which, to our mind, could be easily  remedied.    Thus :           Let*   the   Government,   instead   of   spending  some $80,000 in building a road which will never  be in  general  use, consent to spend* half that  sum   in   deepening  the channel  of  the Slocan  river and in building from three to live lock-  gates along its course.    Such a scheme as this  may very easily be described as visionary, but  we believe that it is eminently practicable, and  the advantages that would accrue from the  the completion of such a work would be innumerable. Ore could be shipped on barges  direct from New Denver to the Slocan crossing,  and light loads of provisions, etc., could be carried up the river at extremely cheap rates. A  route would be established, free for all, on which  no-monopolist could get a hold, and at the same  time an agricultural country of considerable  extent and richness would be opened up. No  small advantages these. Sufficient, at any rale,  to make a thinking man consider whether it  might not be worth while to investigate the  matter more closely beforejdismissing it as the  fool dream of a fool editor.  Some short distance above the crossing there  is an ideal site for a smelter, with all the water  power needful. A short spur from gthe|C. <& K.  R. R. to this point would���������.bring New.

JMIflUffG    SEWS   OS?   -MS   WOSfcliD.  'Native copper has been found, at Copper  Creek, and the assessment work is being done  on it.  The Golden iron mine is sending oat about  three ears of ore a day to Tacoma to be used as  a flux in smelting silver, and the Tacoma people  are constantly increasing their demand for it.  L. K. Armstrong, editor of the Northwest  Mining Review, Spokane, has commenced the  compilation of a descriptive directory of every  mining town and camp in Washington, Idaho,  Oregon and British Columbia. Besides a description of the camp, location, nearest important town and stream, and character of ore, it  will contain detailed descriptions of the principal claims and much other information.  A pocket of gold is said to have been struck  in tile Mother "Lode mine at .Murray, Idaho,  that eclipses in richness anything that lias yet  been reported. Large pieces of quartz, have  been taken out that were so seamed and bound  together with gold that a cold chisel was necessary to cut them in two. Among tbe quartz  were pieces of gold weighing five and six ounces.  The pocket was found in a vein of five feet of  quartz, and is supposed to contain several  thousand dollars worth of gold that will not  need milling.  In the Coeur d'Alene mines, although the  union miners have been imprisoned, there is a  prospect, of a gorilla war that cannot be easily  stamped out. The new mine promises to be  again selected for the firing of the first shot.  The union men as yet have confined themselves  to writing threatening letters. George W..  Thompson, a prominent non-union leader of  Gem, in reply to an inquiry, said: "I fear the  worst. It looks worse than it did before the  last outbreak, and--all that is needed to make  war is some action on either side toward hostilities.  At Kamloops Lake Mr. Red path has discovered a ledge of cinnabar, the only find of  this ore that has been made in the vicinity. The  true vein is 14 inches in thickness, but the mercury has saturated the surrounding rock to the  extent of 10 or 14 feet. The ore is a bright  scarlet, which is the best color, and can be  treated by the evaporation process, which is  both simple and inexpensive. Assays give 18  to 60 per cent, of mercury. Six claims have  been staked off along the vein but the owners  have consolidated into one company'for the  greater convenience of working it.  The Scum Scum claim extends along Bridge  River for half a mile, and was taken up and  worked on account of a $110 nugget having  been found on it. Experiments in hand working the old bed, which the new company are  going to wash off, panned out from $10 to $12  per day on an average, and the company expect to strike some rich deposits on the old  channel. The claim is about 65 miles from where  the creek joins the Fraser River. There is a  peculiarity in the appearance of the nuggets  taken from the slate bed, showing the wash of  many thousands of years which has evidently  worn the soft slate down to the precious metal,  which there is little doubt the old bed contains  away down in the slate in paying quantities.  The main body of the dam is intact and only  the wing is required before the work can be  operated to advantage.  9  a  fi  a  t\&ie  w  (Notary Public.)

A contract has been let to haul ,200 tons of  ore fri-rii Four Mile creek over the Nakusp  sleigh road this winter. ^  There is a good prospect of one of Toad  Mountain's most promising propositions changing hands at a good figure.  Dr. E. C. Kilbourne has taken a bond on the  Lucky Jim, paying $2,000 down. He has also  bonded one of Jackson's claims, on Jackson  creek, for $60,000.  A new statement of the adverse claim in the  Shea v. Hughes mining suit has been filed.    So  the only effect   of mr.  Walkem's  decision  has  ..been to tie up the property for 6 or 8 months.  Evergreen Billy Lynch, the locator , of the  Washington, has got ore on the Fremont, another of his Slocan properties, which goes 356  ozs. to the ton in silver, and 70 per cent lead,  and is in the throes of a big deal over it.  Messrs. Jowett &" Chad bourne have bonded  the Reid and Robinson group on Four Mile  creek, Slocan lake. A continuous vein can be  traced through this group for thousands of feet.  They have also bought (he Northern Belle from  the Noble Five boys, the Sadie from C. Chambers and his partners, and a half interest in the  Herbert and Charlotte from G. O. Buchanan.  A report to the effect that the Silver King is  sold comes from Victoria, and purports to be  authentic; the deal may to all intents and purposes be complete, we do not know, hut it is  certain that the deeds are not yet signed, sealed  and delivered. When The Miner gets out flat-  footed and says the mine is sold, people may  take it for granted that The Miner knows ;  but till it does, it prefers to let hearsay evidence  go for what it is worth.  Jim Wardner passed through Nelson yesterday. He has sold his pack train, bag and baggage to Mr. Hughes ol Spokane and given him  a contract to ship 1000 tons from the Freddie  Lee. He was accompanied by Messrs. Wittier  and McNaught of Seattle, who have bought a  half interest in the Idaho. They spent a week  in the Slocan country and cannoe say too much  in its favor; They have let a contract to ship  500 tons of ore.  Kaslo men sometimes get as good as they  give when they come down to Nelson and talk  down the town, as one of them found .when he  ran up against Bob Yuiil the other night.  '���������'Why, man," said Bob, "what do you ..-mean,  coming down here and talking about things  you know nothing about; I can go to work and  with 4 hours'notice put 500 men on the Silver  King, taking out ore that will average $850 to  the ton, and-that's more than you can do in the  Slocan camp, or in the Ainsworth camp, or in  all the camps in British Columbia put together."  Silenced, if not convinced, the Kaslo man withdrew from the discussion, a sadder and a wiser  man.  Messrs. Jowett '&��������� Chad bourne have got a  veritable bonanza in the Great Western. Mr.  Jowett has just returned from a visit to the  property. He found they had between two and  three feet of ore in the face of the tunnel, about  14 inches of it solid. The pleasant surprise came  when.,the ore which is mixed with quartz  "plumbaginous slate" (this is quoted from an  expert ; The Miner is guiltless) gray copper and  galena went higher in silver than the solid ore.  There are curious chances in mining". Messrs.  Jowett & Cbadhourne ran in 70 feet alongside  of the lode and spent many anxious moments  till a crosscut in their tunnel showed it up.  While excavating for a blacksmith's forge a  few feet, from the tunnel they uncovered the  ledge with a good showing of solid ore right on  the" surface.   "'All's well that ends well.  Sometimes things don't turn out so well.   Mr.  'a  Tomlinson  of  the  Pilot   Bay   smelter, went to  John King and told him he wanted to buy a  mine from'' him as everything he had located in  the Cceur d'Alene and the Slocan had turned  out well. Mr. Ki.ng told him he had not got a  mine to sell, onlv a lot of wild cats he had no.t  proved. " Well" said Mr. Tomlinson, "I'll buy  a wild cat from you." Mr. Tomlinson then offered him a claim called th" Bear Lake, which  is near the wagon road, and on which he had  found good float for $1,000.00. They agreed to  go up and see it the next day. Meantime some  men had made a rich strike on this very ground  and thinking it vacant had located it and were  working on it.

There can be no doubt however,  that the intention is kindlv and that it will do  us no harm to have our weak places pointed out:  Nelson, adieu.   To leave thee I am loathe,  For much there is in thee that I admire.  Come gentle muse while I thy aid invoke  And with some wholesome truths my pen inspire  Just for awhile.  And first I would the city fathers thank  For their kind care in making you so bright  That night or day no difference seems to make  Now you have got the fine electric light  In prospective.  Thy system sanitary is complete;  If filthy creeks and garbage in galore  Make up the sum of cleanliness and health,  Then you, I think, have nothing to deplore  Just now, you know.  Then, yet another source of joy to thee  Thy aqua pura is the best I know,  But at what hour the water will be on,  Or at what time most likely it will flow,  There's none can tell.  Then, as to law and order, you'll agree,  That justice here is blind, and never saw;  So woe betide that most unlucky wretch  Who falls into the clutches of the law  Through theft or jim-jams.  Still he has hopes, not every spark has fled;  Though he be cast into the dungeon vile,  Full well he knows he can get out again  If he half tries���������well, I should smile���������  Of course he can.  Your postal service is most excellent;  That is, if time's no object and delays are good.  Your trains are punctual when close on time.  No doubt they'd get there sooner if they could,  But then they don't.  Well, joking all apart, you are but young,  And all, no doubt,.will come out right in time.  May Nelson prosper as I hope she may  And every prospect soon turn out a mine  Of wealth to all.  To Extract &������1<_.  A new and  ingenious method of extracting  gold and  other metals from their ores on the  dry system without the aid of water or chemicals,   says the London,   England,   Times,   has  been  invented   by    William   I_.   Card   of   the  United States.    The system consists in the employment of  two main  agencies���������a current of  air and gravitation, in appropriately arranged  machines.    There  are four types of these machines���������namely,  a   small,   hand-woiked,   prospecting machine,  for testing   the   richness  of  mineral deposits on the spot; another for concentrating refractory ores; one for extracting  free gold from alluvial and placer soils, and yet  another for extracting free gold from crushed  quartz.    The principle  underlying each of the  machines, however, is the same, although differently carried out, to suit the requirements of  each case.    As a general principle the crushed  ore is fed into a hopper, whence it is admitted  on to a series of inclined sieves, which in some  Cases are vibrated and in others remain stationary. A fan or blower is used to force a blast of  air underneath the sieves and upwards through  them. In onr case, however, the air is drawn  upwards through the sieves by a fan placed  above them. As the crushed ore falls on the  sieves, it is kept in a state of continuous but  gentle agitation. The blast is so regulated as  to drive off the dust-like particles of earth,  while the gold or other metals, by reason of.  their superior gravity, remain at the bottom of  the sieves. The particles of gold are caught by  the sieve on top of the incline, but if any small  particles should pass beyond it, they fall into  the second or third sieve. Large bulks of ore  have been put through the various machines  with most satisfactory results. To instance one  experiment, six dwt. of gold dust and some  small nuggets were mixed with a quantity of  earth and run through the machine for extracting free gold from alluvial and placer soils. In  the result the nuggets and 96.3 per cent of the  the gold dust were recovered, thus satisfactorily  demonstrating the efficiency of the machine in  separating gold from a dry matrix.

The Revelstoke and Little Dalles traffic has  been acquiring significance  this summer apart  from the needs of West Kootenay.   Not only  has the G. P. R. shipped some Chinese merchandise into central Washington by this route, but  numbers of Washington'farmers who have been  attracted  to  the Northwest   by the favorable  crops and good terms for acquiring land round  Edmonton have made use of it for transporting  themselves and their worldly goods In to Canada.  For a long time the tendency has been for Canadians to emigrate to the States in search of the  fertile lands  and rich mines of  the Western  States, but now there are distinct  indications  that the pendulum will  swing the other way.  In the opinion of more  than  one experienced  man the States have passed the maximum of  silver production.   The great  mines are being,  rapidly worked out and nonew ones are being  found to take their place.   The consequence is  sure to be a steady flow of mining capital into  British Columbia. As regards agriculture too,  while in the States there is bound to be continuous and increasing production, the land of  promise, which will attract new settlers and  enterprising capitalists, is unquestionably the  Canadian North-west.  \i  ���������V  v  s������  ._���������'.
