DUMBER 125.  NELSON,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY,   NOVEMBER   26,   1892.  $������ A YEAR  RAILWAY    DEVELOPMENT   OF   WEST   KOOTENAY.  We have latterly been urging ,the need of a  railroad policy of centralisation in West; Kootenay, and reminding the officials of the O. P. R.  that if they would think more of the business  interests of their company, and. of the economical development of this section, and less of real  estate schemes of their own, they would be acting more in harmony with the interest of West  Kbotenay and of the C. P. R.'s shareholders.  Where is West  Kootenay's  natural railroad  centre   and   distributing   point?   No    question  more easily answered by any one who  has ever  been   in   Nelson.    Of   course   there   are some  people whose interest or. prejudice induces them  to deny that Nelson is presumably the capital  point of "West Kootenay. We imagine that an  archangel from heaven could not convince the  editor of the Kootenay Star of (his fact. There  are some.men to whom prejudice is dearer than  liferor the hope of salvation. And there are  also some few foolish persons in Kaslo,- very  few we are glad to be able to say, who hold the  advantages of Kaslo so close up to their eyes  that they can see nothing, beyond. Their intelligence is exactly on a level with that of. a  man who would say on a cloudy day, "There.is  no sun."  But although the inhabitants of West Kootenay require nothing to increase their confidence  there are outsiders before whom it may be as  well to lay a few of our reasons for the faith  that is in  us.  In the first place, one has  simply to take the  configuration of the country.    All  the  mineral  _ yet   found  in   West   Kootenay   has   been  discovered on streams tributary  either  to Kootenay or Slocan lakes.    And  Nelson   is  the point  '���������where the; various  water  routes  on  this  mag-  nificerit iaiahd sea converge and find their  outlet.    From Nelson   there is   water  communication  to  every  point  on   Kootenay  Lake,   and  from Nelson there is  railroad and   water communication with every point,  oil the  habitable  globe.    And just so soon as the  Nelson  & Fort  Sheppard road  is   built,   it 'will   be  possible to  load ore on the cars and ship it to  any point in  the United States or  Canada without a  single  transfer.    Nelson ^is  the  point  where  all  supplies that come into West  Kootenay must converge before thev  are distributed  through the  country,   and   where all   the   products   of the  country   must   converge  before   they   are  distributed to their various markets.    Coke for the  smelters will bear the  legend  "via Nelson" on  its shipping bills; and so   with  supplies  for the  miner and machinery for the   mines.    And copper matte fro.ui West Kootenay will be shipped  from Nelson   to  Swansea,   silver  bullion   from  Nelson   to   Washington,   and silver   ore   from  Nelson to Tacomain  the second place, this is not merely a forecast of the inevitable future, it is to some extent  already realized.    Nelson is the terminus of our  railway; within the near future it is destined to  be the"terminus  of a  second,   and  probably a  third.  In the third place, Nelson has a few second  rate mines directly tributary to itself. For one  of these mines $1,300,000 was offered by one of  the most acute and far-seeing men in the United  States.    The Silver  King   is  a  mine  requiring  vast capital to handle, and 'is snch its development has been long delayed. It cannot be delayed much longer. It is a mine of the calibre  of the Comstoek and the Anaconda, one of the  Tritons among the minnows, whose output will  attract world-wide attention and the fluctuations of whose stock will make and mar the fortunes of thousands. Such is Nelson's position  with regard to her own natural resources and  with regard to those of Kootenay Lake. Does  she occupy the same commanding position with  regard to the ores tributary to Slocan Lake?  Eventually she must, if the railway development of West Kootenay is  carried  out with a  due regard to economy.and usefulness. But to  point out the advantages of a railway up the  Slocan River to connect with the C. and K,  road at Slocan crossing, with the Columbia at  JtCobson, with the Nelson & Fort Sheppard at  Nelson, and with water communication on  Slocan Lake at Slocan City will" require a  column to itself.  ������FEN   "LETTER   TH   THE CTTIZENS OF NELSON.  Fellow Citizens:���������The general impression  abroad is that this has been somewhat of an off  year for Nelson, and no doubt the excitement  attending the opening up of the Slocan district  has given some excuse for the opinion. But at  the same time we. should not allow the progress  of the Slocan countrv to blind us to the advance  made by our own town during the last ten  months. Every day during this year the  foundations of Nelson's prosperity have been  becoming broader and deeper. Banks,. wholesale houses and churches, all of which are evidences of the  embryo  metropolis,   have  been  added during this year to the features of our  town. And the volume of business for them all  has been such as to warrant their location in  Nelson. More significant still is the fact that  a second railway, making Nelson its terminus,  might almost be described.as in process of construction. And it is a fact beyond dispute that  where two or three railways are gathered together, there will be the centre of a district. In  mining, although but little actual work has been  done on Toad Mountain, the indications are  sufficiently satisfactory. Development work  has now reached a point where it must wait for  production, and from present appearances it  will not have to wait very long.  In Nelson, then, at the present time, we have  all the requisites for a town of considerable size  and importance, an industry tributary to it,  railways centered in it, wholesole houses doing  business over a wide area from it, and the legal  and financial business of the country carried on  exclusively within its boundaries.  It becomes a question of pressing importance  to the citizens of Nelson whether they should  not take over the management ,of their own  affairs. The advantages of incorporation are  numerous and important. It would enable the  citizens of Nelson to act as one on questions af-  ecting the interests of the community, and it  would enable them to handle for themselves the  important questions of water supply, drainage  and lighting. They would also be able to keep  their streets in good repair and maintain good  order within the limits of the town. The domination of a government seated at Victoria and  represented by a single official, is repugnant to  the idea of a self-governing community, which  is. the last outcome of our civilization, and while  it is merely irksome so long as a town is in an  embryonic state, it becomes more intolerable  the more complex and important the interests  of the community become. The citizens of  Nelson should take time by the forelock and appoint a committee to carry the business of incorporation through for them. The largest  owners of real estate in the town, the government and the C. P. R., would offer no resistance,  and next year we would obtain adequate means  to regulate and foster the growth of Nelson.    Ciyis.  TSIE    NELSON   AiVa>    ffOEiT   SEEEE'E������AEtE>.  T>r. Arthur has just returned from a visit to  the camps of the surveying parties who are locating the line for this railroad. The cook in  Bowen's camp was ill,and in spite of the doctor's  care, died of hemorrhage of the brain. One of  these campsjs about 15 miles, the other about  25 miles, from Nelson, The line has been run  to the summit of the Beaver, and about seven  miles only remain  to  be located.    The  parties  have,not been having a particularly good time,  as during the last month, with the exception of  two days, when it has not been snowing, it has  been raining cats and dogs. In addition to the  discomforts caused by bad weather, the parties  have been threatened with a shortness of grub.  The badness of the trail having pre vented, the  Siwash packers from coming in on time.. Altogether the survey is in a most advanced, and  satisfactory state, and the line will be in a condition, by the spring, to allow the more serious  part of the work to proceed without delay,  . WEST   KOOETENAY   WILL  .BOOM.    '  W. C. Ward, manager of the Bank of British  Columbia, expresses himself as being extremely  confident that our country is to cause a sensation in mining and monied circles. Mr. Ward  says that South Africa has monopolised, to a  great extent, the attention of English capitalists  for some years past, but that there is at present  a vast amount of capital waiting for investment  in other quarters. The brokers are looking for  some place in which to piace money to advantage, and are keeping their eyes on British Columbia. It is only necessary for someone "to  ���������start the ball a-rolling," and for one mine, owned  in England, to pay a dividend, to cause an inrush of capital to this country, which will equal,  if it does not exceed that to South Africa. Mr.  Ward predicts that within two years we shall  be right in the centre of the most active and  richest mining district in the world.  MINING   NOTES.  Numerous snow slides in Slocan.  Nakusp sleigh road is progressing.  No late news of the Silver King deal.  New Denver is minus a mail service.  Five feet of snow on the Washington.

No meat in New Denver, no butter, no tobacco; pathetic letter from a man inspired by  his last pipe. Supplies will be packed in via  Slocan River.  E. A.Bielenberg came down from Kaslo yesterday. He has recently been through to New  Denver, and reports that the place is very  quiet. During the winter he means to do some  prospecting on the borders of Arizona, returning in the spring".

THE MUSTEK:   NELSON,  B.  0.,  SATUBDAY, ffOYEMBEB 26,  1892.  mSI>T������   NS3WS   OF   TIIS  WORLD.  An important strike was .made, a few days  ago in the Jay Gould mine,, situate about four  miles east of Chewelah, Idaho. Several years  ago a 50-foot working: shaft was sunk in the  ledge and crosscut, which showed the ledge to  be 16 feet wide ar the bottom of the shaft. This  year it was decided to sink in the ore chute  about 15 feet northeast of the 50-foot shaft, the  result being that there is now over five feet of  high grade concentrating.ore in sight on the  foot wall. As he did not cut to the hanging wall  he thinks there is more and better ore in that  wall than there is in the foot. The ore has been  thoroughly tested and assays from 20 to 400 ozs.  in .silver, 10 to 20 per cent, lead and  some  gold.  A big mining d^al, embracing all the coal and  iron mines of Cumberland county, N. S., has  been consummated by a syndicate composed of  Montreal and New York men. The new company will be known as the Canada Mines and  Coal Company, and .will have a capital of  $1,500,000. Wilkins, a New York banker, is the  financier.  J. W. Sutherland, representative of the American capitalists who are bonding the Texada  Island mining claims, has returned from Texada.  He is more than pleased with all he saw, and  says that in his 15 years'experten.ee he has never  before seen anything to equal th<* mineral  riches of Texada. He has bonded the claims of  C. R..Miller and Hugh Kirke, and is under negotiations with (he -Minerva Mining Company  for their properties. He has also obtained  several adjacent claims,'including the Blue  Hell. Operations on an extensive scale will be  commenced bv the first of the new year.  The Anaconda Mining  Company,   of Cripple  Creek, recently signed  an  agreement with  G.  de la Bouglise, representing a  wealthy  French  syndicate, to furnish  15,000 tons of milling ore  to him as soon as the mill could be put in operation for its treatment. The mill company agrees  to put in mills and reduction   works  capable of  handling 100 tons of ore per day, t he mill to be  in operation as soon as it   is   possible to get the  machinery in place.    The articles of agreement  have been  signed by D. H. Moffat, president of  the   Anaconda   company,  and   by   Mr.   de   la  Bouglise   on   behalf of  the  French  syndicate.  This comes as somewhat of a surprise to -many,  in view of  the  fact   that Anaconda  stock   has  within a few weeks slumped from 58 cents to 10  cents, and' ih'a't the officers of the company have  placed it iff the most unfavorable light possible.  Mining interests  about  Colville  are  looking  up.    At the  Dead  Medicine  niine a large ore  body is in  sight and  a concentrator is  being  erected.    The assays there  average  about   $70  in silver.    The Old'Dominion is working a gang  of 32 men, and  turning  out   four  tons  of concentrates, besides some smelting ore.    The concentrates are now shipped to  Tacoma, but they  will be sent to the Spokane smelter as soon  as  it is ready for work.  The opening of the Spokane smelter is looked  forward   to  hopefully  by.-'all.-'miners   of   that  region.    At the Young America  and  Bonanza  mines the concentrator is turning out something  more than four tons of concentrates, which are  shipped to Tacoma.    At  the  Eagle  mine  they  are working a gang of ten men, and thn development shows up well.    A new and good find was  made this season  in   the  Bruce  Creek  district,  about 18 miles northeast of Colville.    The ore is  of the same character as the Old Dominion, and  averages 100 ozs.  of silver.    Messrs.   Williams  and   Sterns   have   discovered   a  fine   prospect  about 11 miles-north east of the Eagle-mine and  near Chewelah..   The ore is essentially dry and  assays 828 ounces of silver.    The. new discovery  is important, in that the  formation,  instead of  being lime, as at the Eagle, is slate ond granite.  Mr. E. C. Davis, general manager of the Black  Wonder Gold and Silver Mining Company, has  recently returned from an extensive tour of the  mines of  Hinsdale  county,   Color-ado,   wherein  are located   both  the  Creede  camp and Black  Wonder at Sherman.    Mr. Davis says that one-  half of the truth has not been written about the  phenomenal deposits at Creede,   which  exceeds  in value the wildest expectations of old prospectors in the mountains,.   Mr. Davis adds that the  Black 'Wonder promises to equal, if not surpass  the   Holy  Moses   mine at Creede.    The  latest  assay  from   tire,   former   shows   a prospective  value   of $1,447.05 per ton���������a figure that has  seldom been equalled in the State.

Water doctors, individuals who professed to  be able to do by means of natural gifts that  which is now-a-days done by boring, that is,  find water���������-went out of date at the same  tine when it .ceased to be the fashion to burn  witches alive. That the principle of the thing  survived the thing itself, is evidenced by the  fact that there exists to-day, in Denver, a man  who, carrying oh his business under the name  of theSmythe G-old and Silver Discovery Company, professes to be able, not only to "locate  and define any true vein, however nruch it may  be covered up by slides or wash," but also "to  tell the width between walls and the course of  each vein." -Any man, or any company, that  can do all this is a jackass to give it away.  What he, or it, ought to do is to take a trip  into the Slocan or the Lardeauxs, locate mineral  on some of the many wild cats upon which ore  has not, as yet, been found���������arid we are sure  that some, if not many, such claims exist���������buy  the location for a small sum, and become West  Kootenay's first millionaire.  Any man who professes to do all this is a  bigger fool than the man, if such a man there  be, who believes in such nonsense. There are,  we know, instruments which a prospector is  supposed to carry in his hand whilst searching  for locations, and which are supposed jbo show  the presence of mineral by the deflection of a  needle. Useless as such a contrivance is, we  would much sooner trust to its promises than  to those ef the gentleman who runs this Discovery Company.   ___________  We are sorry to see that the Kaslo Examiner  seems to be hurt at the manner in  which  we  commented upon the  condition of the  wagon  road, and most unjustly asserts that we sneer  at Kaslo and her inhabitants.    Such is very far  from being the case.    We have recognized  in  every possible way, and praised on  every possible occasion, the push and energy  of Kaslo's  citizens.    We have, by means  of efficient correspondents, endeavored to give to the outside  world a true and full account of her doings, and  that at a time  when  there  existed no direct  means of spreading news of her, other than the  pages of The Miner.    And finally, after all the  talk and  bluster,   not one statement that we  made has been disproved.  The Provincial Parliament will shortly be in  session again,  and the mining law is sure to  come in for a certain amount  of consideration.  How would it be if the  Government, instead of  looking, upon the mining commission as a means  of providing sops for hungry politicians,  who  may be, at the same  time, doubtful  supporters  of the Government, were to regard it  as a matter,   the  proper adjustment  of which deeply  affects their interests and the  interests  of the  province at large ? And instead of nominating,  to serve on the commission, men who know as  little about quartz mining as they know  about  the psychological condition of prehistoric meta-  morphic atomic globules, went to work to find  the men who knew most about the subject, hot  caring whether they were i?or the  Government  or against it;   whether they  were   Liberal or  Conservative?  Such a step might have very good results,  and the surprise which the Government would  cause by its taking such a course ought not to  deter it from doing thatj however revolutionary,  which, in the end, would be productive of nothing but good.  Let the next commission be composed of  seven men: Two practical miners; two scientific  miners, or experts; two men who make a business of dealing in mines; and one lawyer whose  duty it would be to put into legal shape the  suggestions of the other six. Let each man be,  as far as possible, a specialist in his own line of  business. Then, and not until then, shall we  have a mining lawupon which has been,expended  all that care and thought which so important a  matter as the regulation of our main industry  imperatively demands.

The rumored sale of the  Gem mine at  Gem,  Idaho, caused a ripple of excitement in  mining  circles in Spokane,  and telegrams asking for  particulars   of   the   sale  were   received   from  nnrnerous mining men  in the Cceur d'Alenes.  When Mr. Burke was asked ahout the sale of  the mine he said : "In the first place, the mine  is not located at Burke, but at Gem, Idaho; in  the second place, T. P. O'Connor has never seen  the property, and thirdly, the troubles in the  Cceur d'Alenes have never affected the sale of  this property one way or the other, and negotiations have never been made heretofore with  other parties for the sale of the mine, as the  call for property which Mr. O'Connor, myself and  others have, we got for the first time sixty days  ago, and after an examination of the property  and a report made upon it myself.  "The property has not been  sold but negotiations are going on for its sale with satisfactory  results so far as we have  gone,  and  if my  report is verified by their experts the  chances are  favorable for a sale.   While this is a large mine,  however  and   well   worth  the money,  in my  opinion, that is asked for it, $1,000,000 is a great  deal of rnonev and it takes time as well as work  to get it together, except as regards large corporations where the financiers  of  the  conntry  are interested.    Mr. Finch has gone East to get  the stock of the present company together, and  he does so in order that he can make a delivery  if the   sale   is   completed.    Further,   the local  stockholders, among whom are A. B.  Campbell  of  Wallace, Mr. Gross of Mullaiv Captain San-  burn of Cceur d'Alene  city,  and  Congressman  John  L.  Wilson,   have deeded their stock to  him as  trustee,   and those in  Milwaukee and  Youngstown, O., will do the same in order that  the matter can be expedited."  The intending purchasers are Irish landowners  of great wealth, and there is little doubt in the  minds of mining men but that the sale will be  made.  NELSON.

Mc-  Leary, off the Nelson,   which  we published in  our.last issue was incorrect in one or two essential particulars.    McLeary,   it seems,   was   not  missed, was not drowned, and never will be, we  trust.      The rumor of his death reached us too  late to allow of our. enquiring at head-quarters  as to its  correctness.    The fact of   the  matter  was that McLeary  put his   baggage  onto  the  steamer, and  then   went  up  town   again,   and  before he had returned  the  boat had started.  Someone discovered that  his  baggage  was  on  board and that its owner was not, and^at once  proceeded to evolve the pretty little novelette,  which formed the basis of our paragraph.  D.' C COKBIX TAXKS OF TBBE N. *fe F. S. IN T A COMA  While Mr. Corbin was in Tacoma on his way  to Victoria on business connected with the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway, he was interviewed by ������ Ledger reporter. He talked  very enthusiast     JJy of the Slocan country and  gave it as his opinion that vast fortunes would  be made there. Large quantities of ore had  already been shipped over the Spokane &  Northern in spite of the difficulties in reaching  the present terminus of the road at Northpo.rit.,  These difficulties Mr. Corbin proposes to remove  by having the Nelson & Fort Sheppard road  completed to Nelson by September of next  year. Work on the road, which is about 70  miles long, will be commenced as early as possible in the spring. The work will not be difficult and can be done f or !$20,000 a mile. Mr.  Corbin expects that this road will greatly  benefit Spokane by giving it direct communication with this section.  BONDED TIES 1&5CO.  J. M. Harris, about seven months ago, left  Wallace, Idaho,, for the Slocan district. By  diligent prospecting he found several most  promising properties. He bonded another interest, and a portion of a group of  these claims  he    has    bonded   to     Coeur   d'Alene   mining-  men.  The property bonded is known as the Rico  group, or rather, five claims were bonded of the  seven which compose the group. The original  owners were J. M. Harris, F. T. Kelley, Evan  Jones and S. M. Wharton. A few weeks ago  Evan Jones sold his interest to Mr. Udin, of  Spokane. Harris and Kelly, owners of two-  thirds, this week bonded their interests for  $25,000 each, $2,000 each being paid down.  Patrick Clark, formerly manager of the Poor-  man at Burke, was the buyer, and it is understood that Messrs. Campbell & Finch, Ben  Kingsburg of Butte, and John M. Burke are  associated with him. The bond is given for one  year. No ore is to be shipped, and there nrust  be continuous work.  TheRico'shows a ledge 11 feet wide. There  are six feet six inches of galena and 18 inches of  carbonates. The lowest assay from the former  was 108 ounces silver and 98 per cent. lead. The  latter assays 57 ounces. The galena is pure  shipping ore.  "���������"���������j""  NOTICE.

In spite of our protest against the methods of  the strychnine fiend, an attempt has been made  to solve the dog question by promiscuous poisoning.    Our own dog, one of the least harmful, and  best behaved of the canine race, was the first  victim. Youth and a strong constitution pulled him through. His chum, Fred Hume's Joe,  paid him several visits during his sickness, and  the two are now celebrating his recovery by a  three days' tear after jack-rabbits (,and chipmunks. . A very inoffensive little dog owned by  Mr. Stirsky was next struck down, and succumbed on Baker Street bridge. A Siwash also  lost two valuable bear dogs. It is a cowardly  way to get rid of superfluous dogs by poisoning  them, and we hope to see no more of it in Nelson. If the number..-of dogs must be reduced,  let them be shot, as we suggested, not poisoned,  C������?  COR.

AIiIYE AND KICKING (IIKEi STEER.)  The account of the drowning of Wrn. J. McLeary, off the Nelson, which we published in  our .last issue was incorrect in one or two essential particulars.    McLeary,   it seems,   was   not  missed, was not drowned, and never will be, we  trust.      The rumor of his death reached us too  late to allow of our. enquiring at head-quarters  as to its  correctness.    The fact of   the  matter  was that McLeary put  his   baggage  onto  the  steamer, and  then   went  up  town  again,   and  before he had returned  the  boat had  started. -  Someone discovered that his  baggage  was  on  board and that its owner was not, and������*at once  proceeded to evolve the pretty  little novelette,  which formed the basis of our paragraph.  I>. C. CORBIX TALKS OF TSfiE N. *& F. S. IN TACOSIA  While Mr. Corbin was in Tacoma on his way  to Victoria oil business connected with the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway, he was interviewed by a Ledger reporter. He talked  very enthusiastically of the Slocan country and  gave it as his opinion that vast fortunes would  be made there. Large quantities of ore had  already been shipped over the Spokane &  Northern in spite of the difficulties in reaching  the present terminus of the road at Northpo.rt.  These difficulties Mr. Corbin proposes to remove  by having the Nelson & Fort Sheppard road  completed to Nelsonv by September of next  year. Work on the road, which is about 70  miles long, will be commenced as early as possible in the spring. The work will not be difficult and can be" done for $20,000 a mile. Mr.  Corbin expects that this road will greatly  benefit Spokane by giving it direct communication with this section.  BOKDED THE 1U���������4������.  J. M. Harris, about seven months ago, left  Wallace, Idaho, for the Slocan district. By  diligent prospecting he found several most  promising properties. He bonded another interest, and a portion of a group of  these claims  he    has    bonded   to     Cceur   d'Alene    mining  men.  The property bonded is known as the Hico  group, or rather, five claims were bonded of the  seven which compose the group. The original  owners were J. M. Harris, F. T. Kelley, ICvan  Jones and S. M. Wharton. A few weeks ago  Evan Jones sold his interest to Mr. Udin, of  Spokane. Harris and Kelly, owners of two-  thirds, this week bonded their interests for  $25,000 each, $2,000 each being paid down.  Patrick Clark, formerly manager of the Poor-  man at Burke, was the buyer, and it is understood that Messrs. Campbell &��������� Finch, Ben  Kingsburg of Butte, and John M. Burke are  associated with hiin. The bond is given for one  year. No ore is to be shipped, and there nrust  be continuous work.  The Hicoshows a ledge 11 feet wide. There  are six feet six inches of galena and 18 inches of  carbonates. The lowest assay from the former  was 108 ounces silver and 98 per cent. lead. The  latter assays 57 ounces. The galena is pure  shipping ore.  " SMOTBCE.

In spite of our protest against the methods of  the strychnine fiend, an attempt has been made  to solve the dog question by promiscuous poisoning.    Our own dog, one of the least harmful, and  best behaved of the canine rsce, was the first  victim. Youth and a strong constitution pulled him through. His chum, Fred Hume's Joe,  paid him several visits during his sickness, and  the two are now celebrating his recovery by a  three days' tear after jack-rabbits .,and chipmunks. A very inoffensive little dog owned by  Mr. Stirsky was next,, struck down, and succumbed on Baker Street bridge. A Siwash also  lost two valuable bear dogs. It is a cowardly  way to get rid of superfluous dogs by poisoning  them, and we hope to see no more of it in Nelson. If the number of dogs must be reduced,  let them be shot, as we suggested, not poisoned,  'ir*vvbis-JMja������fvn^\MXj^~^jjj<*]wkw  ���������m  ~K-1BTwvtc?rir~B  e  -  __  COR.

The water-main on Josephine Street broke on  Tuesday afternoon, and Nelson had to return to  the primitive method of procuring water. The  dause of the accident was one part of the pipe  resting on rock, whilst the remainder of it was  embedded in earth, which, through the agency  of alternate frost and thaw, shrank and expanded, thus straining the pipe to the breaking point.  An epidemic of a moderately mild and not at  all deadly nature is now raging in our midst,  the symptons of which are a pain in the chest  and. throat. The following prescription has  been recommended by one of our leading doctors: Rum, half a glass; lemon, one; sugar or  honey, to taste; hot water, to make half a pint.  To be applied internally as often as required,  until the sufferer is relieved. We understand  that within the past few days the number of  cases has increased to an alarming extent.
