While other districts may employ more men,  Trail Greek claim-.owners, are doing their share  ' of development work.    While other towns are  putting on fiills, the  town of Trail is  certainly'  holding',"its own.    All tin's is encouraging', and  goes to show that the men who halve spent''.time  and -money in Trail Creek district have faith in  the future" of the camp.    A number of men are  working  on  the Le   Roi   cleaning.out  the "old;,  shaft/; when clea n ed out s inkin g will l>e i esun i ed.  Phil Aspinwall has:suiik a 25-foot shaft on the  Kootenay,  a  claim   with a ledge   fully 50  feet  wide, and, besides^! has done assessment work on  a number of other locations.    He will work all  winter, it  is said.    About  24 miles westaof /the  Le B,oi is the 1XL groiip of gold claims.���������"���������Tliere.  are  8 locations  on the main ledge, 7 4 of them  showing  ore,   tlie  one  from   whichcthe  g-rbu'p.-  takes  its  name  being  pronounced   one  of  the  best gold prospects in Bsitish Columbia.   A tunnel is in  about  4()feet on  the 1 X L,, and  the  owners   a re   expect ed    irr   soon    to    determine  whether  work  will   be  continued   during   the  winter.    The Le Roi  trail   wi 11   be ext elided to  the groui) in the spring.    A find was recently  made to the w^estof tlie -North  Eork, 3 claims ..  being located.    On one the ledge has been stripped, which shows it to be froin 4 to 5 feet wide,  carrying galena, ore of good grade.-   Aparfycif  5 prospectors   have   made  bet .wen'-12 ari,cL 15  locations on the stun in it c>f the., divide between;  the North  Fork and ^heep; rro'ek^  of the trail.    Fi oiii assays obtained the ore runs  about $S0 in silver, and when concentrated $800  in  silver and 55 per cent in lead.    -J. C. Bonne,  Andrew   Simons,  and  Arthur Finch   have discovered a 10-foot ledge about 1^-miles  north  of  the trail,   from   which  they "expect-to   make a  stake, as it: is a fine surface sh<>wring.    The men  who were at work repairing the 'trail   through  to Kettle river and building branch trails to the  ���������lie Hoi and. Iron mountain groups of claims were  paid off at Trail on the 4th, which caused-money  to circulate with unusual freedom in the "city"  that has the only "telegraph office between Robson and Little Dalles.  IMrl Cheap ...at..tlie  E*a'if,e. (  When here last month W. H. Merritt of Toronto, Ontario, obtained a working bond, on'the  Bellie,   a  claim   in   Hot   Springs  district.    The  price stipulated  in   the bond   is  $15,00.0."  Five  hundred dollars was to be expended in work on  the ground, and if the work proved satisfactory  the'bond -..was to  be taken  up by November 1st.  ���������Mr, Merritt appointed mr. llodgins of Nelson as  his agent, to report as the '.work progressed.  Mi-.  Hodgins   was  at Ainsworth this  week, and  on  his''return   to   Nelson   reported   the   wo'i;k  progressing favorably, and, furthermore, that the  ledge is now traced as running not  lengthwise  w it'll   the  claim, but diagonally across it.    The  ore is carbonates and very similar to that found  in the Number One, of'which the Dellie is supposed to be an extension, it  being less than 20U0  feet distant to the north.    Local experts say the  claim is dirt cheap at the price.  A flfiirried Session of a County Court.  A session of t lie county court was held on Monday forenoon, and  was noted for no one thing  more than the hurried  manner in  which cases  were disposed  of by the presiding  justice,    it  would probably   be just  as  satisfactory  to  the  people of this section of British Columbia if no  sessions   of  the county  court  were  held,  as  it  seems farcial to limit the time for the hearing of  oases by the   time between  trains.     This plain  statement of  fact may be contempt of  court;  but it is, nevertheless, true.   The following cases  were disposed of:  Thomas & Sanders vs. Busk et.al.   Suit brought to set  aside a deed given by Busk to Flint & Gallop for the ground  on which the Balfour house stands, on account of one of  tlie plaintiffs "(Thomas) being a. minor. The court ordered  the deed set aside and the registration cancelled;,''also  that Busk make a now conveyance of the property to  Thomas. ;  Lemon vs. Riopellc ; ordered that notice he given defendant by publication, he being absent from tlie province.

To the EiHTOti of The Miner:   Having heard that we  are not honored with The Miner of late a gentleman has  kindly sent us your issue of September 10th, and drawing  .our attention to your editorial remarks.    One item begins  -..with,"'"it is strange how eager some men are to cater to the  weaknesses of their fellow-men," etc., etc.    You were very  lhnch in error.    It was not the man that has the license,  7T)utX:the;party:or parties who send the gallonsand eases of  liquor from Nelson to the Silver King mine on Toad mountain, to whom you must give the credit of having destroyed  the peace, good will, industry, and broken the friendships  prevailing on  Toad  mountain.    We  have just opened a  hotel up here in the mountains for the benefit'of the traveling public.    It is not a lawless place, as you imply, but a  respectable place, and I dare you to again insinuate that it  is not.   In place of being a detriment to Toad mountain  it is a benefit, for when it is known that there is a stopping  place on top of Toad 'mountain many will come into the  country who would not care to undergo the hardships of  camping out.    We do not care how '.much nor by whom  liquors are sent to the mines.    It is not our business to interfere with  others,  and if every one,  no 'matter what  branch of business they follow, would attend to it only and  leavc,othcrs alone the peace and good will of Nelson and  Toad mountain would be assured.    When you published,  '"now that liquor is retailed the peace and good will and industry  that prevailed   on the mountain  are gone," you  simply printed an infamous falsehood, chiefly noticeable  for its malice, and evidently the outcome of a very much  befogged brain. EUGENE AUGUSTA LEWIS.  Toad Mountain, October 5th.  Kootenay  Bias  Sfconc  Its  Share.  It took  Robert Kirkwood and 9 men a little  ''over 3 .weeks   to   repair the trail  leading from  Trail Creek on  the Columbia river to the Yale  district line, a distance of 19  miles.    Thf\v also  made 2 branch trails; one to the group of claims  of which the Le Roi is the best known, the other  to the claims on Iron mountain.    The branch to  the  Le  Roi   is  2 miles   long and   that   to   Iron  in on n tain between 2 and 3 miles.    Mi'. Kirkwood  says the summit-of-the divide, is at least 3500  feet above the Columbia, and that  the ascent is  easy up to  the  foot  of   the   mountain,   where  a number of short zigzags a re made to reach'the  summit.    If Yale district  would now repair the  trail from the line to Kettle river���������less than .8  miles of the distance  being, reported in bad condition���������40 miles would be saved in 'driving stock  .from the ranges on Kettle river to the mining  camps in southern  Kootenay.    The legislature  appropriated $2000 for* the purpose, and the cost  of  the work   done   by mr. Kirkwood   was  less  than $800.    The Yale authorities should  bestir  themselves in the matter.

Tlie '."��������� quest 'ion "��������� of   i-eciprocit y  in  lead ores will doubtless be one of the  most 'important/ones  dealt with;...by-, the conference  at  Washington.    Failing  that,we should  at 6nce  put a duty of H cents per pound on  iixijVoited  metallic   lead,  which  is the same duty as that  imposed    by   the  United    States,    and    which  is   also   the   same  as   Ave   now   have  on   lead  pipe   and   shot.     It   is  stated   that   we   could:  Use    annually    12,000    tons /of    lead,    which  : would take, souie 60,000 tons of ore, and with the:  dry silver ores, required to smelt the wet ores an'  ���������.'output of some 200,000 tons would be assured annually.    A. whole province is anxiously waiting  for actioiv in this matter.    Another equally im-  portant heed in British Columbia is coke, wherewith to smelt the ores, and a, liberal policy with  regard to rail ways into fields where coke can  be  made  is  a  niatter  of .premier   moment/    West  Kootenay will soon be heard -.from with no uncertain sound. .Americans from Bui te, Spokane,  and Seattle are beginning alceacly to find their  way in, and are buying tip .many-of the valuable  claims.

There  were 6 bids in,,  the highest being over $16*00.    The, bids for the  lockup at Ainsworth were to lie-in-.today, but a  contract will not be awarded until a site for- the  building is secured.    Mr. Fitzsrubbs claims the  2 lotsovvned by  the government  at Ainsworth  require too much grading to make them suitable  for a. jail, and thai  if they,can be traded for one  lot oii  level ground the tirade will be made.    In  that   event,   the  size  of   the .building   will    be  changed, as  the  lots  in   Ainsworth  are 25  feet  wide," while  the  plans  call   for a lockup 20 feet  wide.     Parties   putting   in   tenders  should   not  therefore  be disappointed at the delay in'making the award, or at any changes that  may be  made in tlie plans.  11->  BSears and  Trout,  B*I<*utifuI.

Mr. Yuill says the pass is a good one  for a railway, and that there are hundreds of acres of good  land on the Salmon river side.

The mystery surrounding the finding, in 1887,  of 20 Chinese in Snake river, Idaho, at a point  about 50 miles from Walla Walla, has been  solved. The bodies all bore gunshot wounds,  showing that they had been murdered. Chinese  consul Bee of San Francisco instituted an in-  vestigafion at tlie time, but was unable to find  who coiiunit ted the crimes. The following statement is now made public, and steps will be taken  to pnnish the nien who Dinordered them :  I,   Hugh   McMillan,   now   of   Walla   Walla,  Washington, but formerly of Ininaha, Wallowa  county, Oregon, make the following statement,  to the end that just ice may be done to interested  parties.   T make this statement from the statement made to me by my son Robert, aged 16,  just prior to his death, and by me then reduced  to-writing;    In the  latter part of  April,  1887,  my son and Bruce Evans, J. T. Canheld, Max  Larue,  Frank   "Vaughn,   Hiram   Maynard,  and  Carl  Hughes  were  stopping in a cattle cainp  4 miles from Snake river.    My son and Evans,  Cahfield,     Laure,     and      Vaughn     went     to  the  Chinese   camp  on   Snake   river.    Canfield  and  Larue  went  above  the  camp   and  Evans  and Vaughn remained below.    The whole party  was armed with repeating rifles and revolvers.  There were 13 Chinese in camp and they were  fired oh by the party above the camp.    The unarmed Chinese retreated, when they were fired  upon by those below the camp.    Twelve Chinese  were instantly killed, arid one other was caught  afterwards and his brains beaten out. The party  got that evening $5500 in gold dust.    The next  day 8-more-Chinese came to the camp in a boat.  They were fired on and all killed and their.bodies  thrown into the river with the others. The party  then took a boat and went to another Chinese  camp, 4 miles distant,  where 13 Chinese were  working- on. a river bar.    These  were all  shot  and killed and the bodies thrown into the river.  The camp was robbed and $50,000 in gold secured.  My son was present only the first day, but  was  acquain ted  with th e facts as th ey were ta Iked  over by the parties in his presence.   The circumstances here  detailed  occurred On  the  Oregon  side  of Snake river, in  Wallowa county, near  the northeast corner of the state.  (Signed)  Hugh McMillan.  A Fabulous  Find-of-Wire <f������ol'<I. (.  Fabulous finds of rich ore are not confined to  this-section of -British" Columbia. R. B. Need-  ham, brown and toil-worn with 2 years' prospecting in the Sierra Madre range of Mexico, arrived at Sail Antonio, Texas, last week in search  of mrs. May Friend. She is the wife of an acquaintance, a miner like himself. Needbam  ^ays that after almost incredible hardships,  Friend has made a find of fabulous richness. It  is in the heart of the Sierra Madre range, 200  miles from a railway. Chihuahua the capital  of the state of Chihuahua, is the nearest town.  This find seems to be of limitless extent, and of  little trouble to work." There is plenty of wood  and water. The ore carries the purest of wire  g(>ld'.. As Need ha i n expresses if, "t he strike is  like picking up yellow dollars." Friend is now  in Chihuahua with specimens of the metal. San  Antonio, which contains many miners and mining speculators, is much excited. Mrs. Friend  was found; she has been living in straightened  circumstances, and she was overcome by the  news of her good fortune.  Enjoying a  ISIissi'ul Lease of Life.  One of the editors of the Seattle Press-Times  has been camping out near Kettle Falls, Washington, for the past month. The following is  his opinion, of the place:  'kIf it is proper to believe in the Epicurean  doctrine that pleasure, and therefore.happiness,  consists of the a!'S;*nce, simultaneously, of ho lily  pain and mental confusion, tho populace of Kettle Falls should enjoj'' a blissful lease of life. It  is a natural sanitarium to begin with, and there"  is so little to do, and so much inclination to do  nothing, that the brains of the community  neither throb nor ache.

On the verandah  of the magnificent hotel the young college graduates who have come out to the Columbia valley  to get rich suddenly, serenade, with banjoes and  guitars, the girls they left behind in the states.  Once in a while there is a reoccurrence of cerebral activity, which manifests itself in a game  of draughts in the hotel reading-room, or in a  contest at chess between the city shoemaker  and a gray haired veteran who insists on playing  in the.-middle of the sidewalk. To be frank,  Kettle Falls inay have come to stay, but it  seems to have come too soon. It represents-in  the highest degree the eastern spirit,of speculation, and cannot be said to be, in any sense, a  representative western mountain town.  Worked  SJke :i Charm.  A lady in Detroit has for the last 6 months  regulated the air of her bedroom by a glass  transom.

It  worked like a charm until she discovered that  there had never been any glass in the transom.  Liabilities LargeJy in   ITCxcess  of Their Cash.

It will be remembered that a few years ago  the archduke Sal vat or of Austria renounced  his titles and became a plain sea captain under  the name of John Orth. He sailed for a port in  South America with his ship, which was reported lost at sea. Now comes the following  strange story in regard to him :  "News has been received at Vienna that the  archduke Salvator,  otherwise John   Orth,  was  not  only alive, but  was fighting on t he side of  the Congressionalists in the Chilian war.    The  story as it is reported is that when his schooner,  t he    Santa    Margherit a,    dropped     anchor   at  Ensenda, near Buenos Ay res,  in  June, 1890, a  lady wenfr. aboard,..,accompanied  by a servant,  and   it   was   discovered   they  were   the   archduchess and her maid-from' Vienna..   Two days  later John Orth discharged the majority of his  crew, replaced  them   with.  Spaniards, took on  board 6a  considerable   quantity  of   paint  and  sailed away.    Now it has been discovered that  when he got well out to sea he repainted  his  vessel and changed her name, so as to make her  unrecognizable.   Then he put- into a port belonging to the Congressionalists, where he was exceedingly well received, not .-only, because they  wanted officers and men of intelligence, hut because he brought with him a number of Mann-  licher rifles.    The secret has been well kept, and  John   Orth, assuming  another name,  was supposed to be dead.    Nevertheless, at the hofburg  the emperor and his family never believed the  sad news and".-never- made any serious inquiries  into the matter.    About 3 months ago a letter  was received here, written  in Ghili by Pepi, the  maid   traveling with the archduchess, and addressed to  her aunt  living iii Vienna.    In the  letter the girl said 'My master and  mistress are  both quite well.'    It also stated that John Orth  himself wrote to his family not long since, and  that explains why his relatives have not yet accepted the 600,000 marks for which the Santa  Margherita.  was   insured, and  why the will of  John Orth has not yet been opened.    A -'month  ago the��������� insurance.' company notified the family  of the archduke Salvator that the sum for which  the Santa Margherita had  been insured was at  their disposal.   The fam ily replied that for divers  reasons it was determined to wait a little before  drawing the money.    Eight days ago a young  Chilian arrived at Vienna and put up at the hotel  Erz, in the Kaiserthal, inscribing  his  name in  the  visitors'book as Garcias Manos.    Immediately on his arrival he proceeded to the hofburg^  where he was at once received by the emperor,  with whom he remained closeted for more than  an hour, causing a great deal of astonish men tat  court.   Some hours after the interview the young  Chilian   left   Vienna for Valparaiso,  and  it  is  firmly believed here that John Orth,is living and  ���������'will shortly reappear:"  ���������Instice Oispensecl with Wisdom.  Glasgow Herald:   The bench at  the Central  police court was occupied on Monday by bailie  James Martin, who caused some amusement by  the inanner in which he dealt with the 76 men  and-women that. were-, brought before him for  having been helplessly intoxicated.  A young man, hailing from Motherwell, said  that he had never been in the hands of the police  before, and accounted for the condition in which  he was found by saying that he had visited  friends in the city, and got too much drink.  The Bailie���������-Wis ye no here to see the kickba'  game?  Prisoner���������No, yer honor.  The Bailie���������Weel, gangawa'to Motherwell as  quick as ye can.  The next man who stood up at the bar was  asked by the bailie���������Are ye frae one o\ time  ootlandish places also?  Prisoner���������No, I stay in the town.  The Bailie (noticing that the man was minus  his coat)���������What hiv ye dune \vi' yer coat?  Prisoner���������It wis' taken aif me while I wis  lying drunk in a close.  The Bailie���������That's jist anither proof o' what  I've always said, that it's the sober yins that  robs the drunk yins and never the drunk yins  that robs the sober yins. Seein'ye've paid the  penalty already I'll allow ye to go.  A dirty, miserably-clad young woman told the  magistrate that she was separated from her husband.    Bailie  Martin's  comment   was:    "That  goes a long way tae prove what sheriff Guthrie  said the other day, that in nine cases ooto' every  ten o' wife-beatling, the women are the worst o*  the lot. You should give up drink, an'pay attention tae yer family. Yeil hiv nae pleasure  in a life like this���������2s Gd, or 3 davs."  To an elderly woman, who is a regular frequenter of the court, the bailie remarked: "See-  in' that ye're a guid customer, we'll make the  sentence 2s 6d, or 3 days."  A woman who had been so helpless that she  had to betaken to the office in a barrow next  stood at the bar. To her quoth the magistrate;  "Ye were brocht here in a carriage���������2s Gd, or 3  days; that'll hardly pay fur the machine."  A wretched old woman, having promised to  take the pledge, the bailie said: "I've little faith  in pledges, for they're jist in an' oot, an' oot an'  in, an' in an' oot, and they multiply the numbers  till they make people believe that, the whole nation's teetotalers when there's only a few."

The Kamloops Sentinel does not understand  our position   when  it states that The  Miner  *' favors neither the smelting nor the refining  " industries  in Canada,   but   asks  the   United  " States to remove itsduty of I\ cents perpound  "on lead in  order  that Canadian ores  can be  ** shipped away bodily to American smelters."  The Miner is; an-'ultra protectionist.    It1 does  not favor sending a potind of ore but of Canada  for reduction if it can be treated at home, and a  home market found for the product.    But if a  home market cannot be found for the product,  it is in favor of a reciprocal arrangement with  any country that  will furnish a market; even  with  the  United  States, a country that is so  strongly disliked by the Sentinel.    The Miner  has  advocated, and still  advocates,  increasing  the duty on lead to a figure that will be equally  as high as that imposed by the United States.  It does   so  for 2 reasons:   First,   because  if a  smelter should be built in British Columbia to  smelt ores, and not to sell town lots, its product  could not be sold at a profit in competition with  lead imported from Great Britain; second,  because  the   United   States  would  entertain   no  reciprocal proposition  from  Canada regarding  lead and its products as long as the Canadian  duty remained at a figure below that imposed by  the United States.    The Miner not only favors  the erection of smelters in Canada, but can see  no good reason why smelters cannot be as successfully operated in Canada as in the United  States, provided there is a market for their product.    The ores and the fluxes can be procured  as easily and as cheaply at points on Kootenay  lake as at points in Montana, or Idaho, or Washington, and the extra cost of coke would be more  than offset by natural advantages.    But, then,  it is useless to discuss alive question with a dead  newspaper.  It is proposed to have a parade of 5000 miners  with tools and in their working- clothes as one  of the features of the mining congress to beheld  at Denver on November 18th, 19th, and 20th.  This would be a novel spectacle, and if witnessed  by some of the capitalists of Canada might go  far toward impressing them with the magnitude  and legitimacy of mining as a business.  The postponement of the Washington conference need not be looked on as a calamity by  those who ate interested in the questions likely  to be considered at the conference. Owing to  ill health, mr. Blaine was not able to be in  Washington at the appointed time, and president Harrison probably did not care to allow  the conference to be held in the absence of the  father of the reciprocal idea.  The writer of the letter which is printed on  another page would make it appear that The  Miner opposes the granting of liquor licenses  on merely personal grounds. The writer is mistaken.,. The Miner simply opposes the granting  Of liquor licenses where the sale of liquor would  do more harm than good, and it believes one  such place is on Toad mountain; and in taking  that position it is sustained by every mine manager and nine-tenths of the miners resident oh  Toad mountain; ___  Now that parliament has been prorogued, it  ���������will'be in order for premier Abbott and attorney-  general Thompson to weed out the weak and  puny members of the cabinet. Mr. Dewdney,  minister of the interior, mr. Caron, minister of  militci, mr. Cost igan, minister of inland reven tie,  and mr. Langevin, late minister of public works,  should all be replaced with able, strong, honest  men. /'. . .'... .7 .'."; -'.'-   , * ".'7  The suicide of general Boulanger at the grave  of his niistress in Brussels ends the career of a  man that aimed too high. He fell through his  vanity,^ not through his lack of ability, Had he  been content to serve France as a soldier, a profession to which be was trained; and not aspired  to be a politician, a calling for which he had no  training, he would be a dead hero today, instead  of an unmourned exile, even if he had committed  suicide at the grave of his mistress.  Word comes from ^Winnipeg that the Canadian Pacific will receive no more freight for Nelson and points on Kootenay lake, owing to the  low stage of water in the Columbia river. This  is not very encouraging news for a people who  are working to develop the resources of a portion of the Dominion easily accessible the year  around by railway systems in the United States  that have direct Canadian connections, but connections that happen to be competitors of the  Canadian Pacific. But as long as the Canadian  government is only an adjunct of "the only true  transcontinental route" no relief need be expected. _____  An attempt will probably be made this winter  to ascertain whether or not the outlet between  Nelson and Balfour can be navigated during the  winter. If the attempt is successful the transportation problem is solved. The Kootenay  Lake country will then no longer be in any way  dependent on the Canadian Paciiic railway.  And next year another problem will be solved,  that is, whether or not a smelrer can be run successfully and cont inuously on the silver-lead ores  of Brit ish Columbia. The problem will be solved  in the Kootenay Lake country. The construction of a. smelter is now under way, and by  spring everything will be in i*eadiness for the  machinery. The men who have undertaken its  construction do not expect to be recouped for  their outlay in any other way than from the  profits derived from the business'-of.-smelting  ores, and they do not expect to receive dividends  until they demonstrate their ability to run their  plant continuously. That they will do so is not  doubted in this section.  The efficiency of one of the officials of the  district was sorely tried at the late sessions of  court in Nelson. If the attorney-general had  been present, he would probably have hung his  head in shame.   It is a good thing in private business for an employe to understand that his retention in service  depends upon his fidelity and capacity rather  than upon any system of protection by law  which plants him immovably in a life position.  The prospect that a change of administration  will not dismiss a man who not only is not indispensable, but is a public drone, dude, or insolent  snob in office is not good for the health or efficiency of the public service.    The man of marked  capacity and merit ought to stay, but life tenure  in public office for the vast mass of mediocre  creatures who yawn and dawdle over their duty  in a government office is not desirable, for as a  rule they become victims to the "big head," and  justly odious and vexatious to the public.

THE   UEPOiKT":"OF'..TllK" ������IfcASI>   JURY.  |S7  ��������� t ���������������������������  Thefoilowing is a summary of the report made  by the grand  jury on   Monday to  tri'r.  justice  ���������"��������� Grease:  ', <;.  We have investigated the reports as to the  recent robberies and attempts'.at.robbery at Nelson, and we are satisfied that the reports are  authentic. We are unable, however, to obtain  any evidence as to the perpetrators of these  crimes. To prevent a recurrence of such violations of law and to .protect the -people of Nelson,  we recommend that the constabulary force at  Nelson be permanently increased by a constable  for night duty, one of known capacity and experience in dealing with criminals.  . We have had brought before us a number of  '���������������������������matters affecting the welfare of the people of  the southern-portion'of West Kootenay clistricr,  and we beg to submit such of these as we are  able to agree upon :  E The inadequacy of the present provisions  of law fo, the collection of debts. At present  dishonest aebtors can make their arrangements  and leave the district, openly and deliberately,  without their creditors being able to interpose,  either to hold their persons or their goods. The  re-establishment of the small debts court, or an  equivalent, would-without doubt be a boon to  the commercial community.  2. In view of the large number of liquor  licenses issued in the southern portion of the  district, and a conflict of opinion as to the right  of the stipendiary m agist rate, to issue them, we  recommend the establishment of a licensing  board in the district.  3��������� The necessity is great and immediate for  the construction of a public wharf at Nelson.  Our people have, time and again, been led to  believe that the provincial government would  build such 'wharf, and we trust that it will be  undertaken at once, as the work must necessarily be done at the present low stage of water.  4: Representations have been made to us that  the force of the current in "the narrows" of the  outlet has been considerably increased during  high water by the excavation made by the Groh-  man reclamation syndicate at "the rapids" below  Nelson; arid in view of the prospective establishment of smelting works, to which ore would  be transported through'these'"narrows," as well  as on account of'industries already established,  it would be desirable to diminish, rather than  increase, the strength of this current; and we  recommend that in any. future operations this  syndicate be required to act accordingly.  5. Complaints have been laid before us that  pigs and other animals are allowed to run at  large in the streets of Nelson and Ainsworth;  that pig sties are maintained within the limits  of these towns; and that slops and refuse are  thrown indiscriminately in the streets. We desire that the attention of the local authorities bo  called to the same, and that they be requested  to enforce the laws relating thereto.  6. We find that many cases of suffering and  distress occur aimong sick and disabled men destitute of means; especially is this the case in-  winter, when such men cannot be sen tout of the  district to cities in which there are hospitals.  Therefore we recommend that steps should be  taken to provide a hospital, and believe government a id -should, be granted for its erection.  7. We find that Ward creek in Nelson presents a natural sewer' and in the interest of sanitation and cleanliness the provincial government (Nelson not being an incorporated town or  a municipality) should take the initiative in the  matter, and respectfully recommend it to their  attention.  The grand jury was composed of Gr. E. R.  Ellis (foreman), Gv O. Buchanan, Alfred Hill, J.  Fred Hume, 'Harold Selous, A. E. Hodgins, W.  N. Rolfe, R. E. Lemon, Bruce Craddock, W. J.  Wilson, .'M.

PRIVATE    POLICE-'.AlSOMNIATIOiV' ftENOtLVCEIK  The New York Commercial Advertiser, as its  naaie, indicates, is a journal devoted to the com ���������  Qiercial interests of New York citv, and is in no  sense a political paper. The following from its  coin inn's anen t t he-;, Pinker'! on stand ing 'army of  paid thugs is so straight to the point that it is reprinted in The Miner, although the Pinkerton  system hns not as yet obtained a footing in this  portion of Canada:  "Somewhere aud soon a line must be drawn  between  the  legitimate  and  illegitimate functions of a private police agency.    It cannot be  done too spon for the public safety or too decisively for the good of the commonwealth.    The  present status of what may be called Pinkertonism  is intolerable.    It may be laid down as an  indisputable proposition that American citizens  will not -consent to physical assault at. the hands  of anybody.    Such assaults are committed from  time  to time  in quarrels, arid,  the law so  distinctly frowns on them as to prescribe penalties.  Occasion ally "th ey are m ade by u h i for id ed  officers of the law.    In such a case the law still sur-  rouncls the person of  the  citizen ..with its---protecting arm.    The officer who is guilty of such  an assault is held responsible  for his  act, and  unless he can-justify it by proving the necessity  for   it he   is liable  to prosecution  as  any  or-  ,. dihary/-.malefactor.    The   idea  of  responsibility  prevacles  the  entire  police  system.     So   it  is,'  again, with the state, troops.    The responsibility  for calling  out armed men to quell  a  disturbance is vested in officials duly and directh' responsible to the people.  ''But there has grown up in the midst of us  quite another and armed system, responsible in  no way to the people, chartered in no way by  the people, and to a very great extent���������how  great we have not yet found out���������beyond the  control of the people.  "The Pinkerton police force is such an organization. Recent history is full of suggestion as  to the latent dangers of this private and irresponsible censtabulary. For the past 6 or 8  years it has played the part of- the Turkish  janizaries to the sultans of corporate rapacity.  From the time when its armed men shot down  children in Jersey City to the recent occurrences  in Tennessee,. "Pinkerton men," armed with repealing rifles and commanded by capitalists,  have replaced the constituted police and militia  over which the mayors and governors have control. During the long and dismal period of the  Hocking valley (Ohio) mining disturbances a  force of Pinkerton men, armed with Winchester  rifles, usurped the right to use force which the  executive of the third state in the union declined  to exercise. And only a few months ago, when,  governor Hill, in the capitol of the Empire state,  refused to call out troops to defend railroad  property against imaginary attacks, there was  not''wanting.an army, uniformed, drilled, and  heavily armed, to obey the mandates of the corporation against the people.  "In a slightly modified form the residents, of  New .York' and Brooklyn, have, within a few  days, endured an experience of the same kind.  Within the enclosures of the Brooklyn Jockey  Club, but a few miles from the city hall of the  metropolis, 50 armed men of the same organization have executed martial law upon citizens at  the bidding of a horse owner engaged in a private war with gamblers for his own profit. This,  it seems to us, is an intolerable condition of  affairs.  "The very existence of a private organization  of armed men is an imputation of inability upon  the part of the .people to govern themselves and  maintain order throughout their lawfully constituted police. The logical extreme of tolerating organized force beyond the regulative power  ���������of law is the surrender of law to .force. If mere  wealth, existing in a. corporation or individual,  can, by an appeal to armed force, coerce citizens  .beyond lawful limits, it coerces law itself. The  Pinker-ton army is a menace to self-government.  "Mildly speaking, Pinkertonism in this sense  is a most dangerous excrescence upon our civil  and military "systems. So grave is it, indeed,  that the subject has been considered in the legislatures of this and other states. The power of  corporate wealth prevented the passage.of laws  to remove it.  "But such laws must be passed. Usurpations  of authority are progressive. They never stand  still.     Pinkertonism  has   grown   from   private  hunting for stolen property to private thief  taking; from that it has progressed to private  slaughtering of citizens in private wars. At the  same rate of development there must come  about at no distant date a collision betvveen the  public army of the commonwealth and the  private armies of capital. Before that comes  about the people inust act. The next legislature must draw the teeth of this growing monster while it can."  ^meefsil   SU'aMtBo.s   Wltose <3lmriM's   flfcival  Cleopatra.  An   observant   correspondent   who  has  been  studying the maids of Kafflrland, Africa, writes:  "The  R,assacatumas  are inore cleanly in  their  habits than any tribe I visited.   They keep their  huts in good order, and their trips to the river  for bathing purposes keep a path well trodden  down.   1 saw several specimens of female beauty  among this tribe, such as often have driven men  mad, caused the overthrow of .monarch and the  downfall of nations, whose charms might rank  with  those   of   Cleopatra of   pld.������   Many   fair  skinned ladies might envy their acts of coquetry,  little'. graceful   tossings   of   the   head, and  sly  glances of large black eyes almost hid  by heavy  eyelashes.    In looking at the chisled chin and  forehead, at the development of the entire form,  as perfect as nature could make it, one almost  forgets the scantiness of their attire, which consists of a girdle around the loins profusely Ornamented   with  beads,    and  to   this long  string  of     shells.     beads,     and     tusks    around    the  shoulders, and you have a native maiden in''full,  dress.

The   National   Liberal   Federation   Congress  opened   at   Newcastle,   England,   on    the   2nd.  When tlie preliminaries  of- the opening day's  session had  been  gone  through, sir G.  O.

His speech laid   j  particular stress on the fact that only  through  -\  the adoption of this principle could ah adequate   j  representation   in parliament of labor interests  be secured,.and in no case should the compensation of a member of the bouse of commons exceed $1500 per annum.    The resolution  was seconded by Samuel Storey, M. P. for Sunderland,  and unanimously-carried..  ��������� ���������'. TIMBER. LEASE   NOTICE ..

"How was the Calumet and Hecla discovered?  you ask. Here, captain Duncan, you tell this  raan what he wants to know."  Thus appealed to, the broad-shouldered, smil-  ing-faced man whose spirit pervades the great  copper mine stepped up to the little group waiting for din ner in the hotel at "Calumet.  "It was pigs," he said.  "Yes, it was pigs," echoed the group.  "PigsJ" I exclaimed incredulously.  "Pigs, and no ]nistake,"reuiaiked the captain.  "Back in 1863 an exploring party came to this  part of Michigan to try and find copper.    They  built  a  shanty to  live in, and  of course they  brought  some pigs.    One  night the pigs were  lost.    The boarding-house keeper started out to  find them.    After a?'.'long search  he heard  the  pigs rooting and squealing, but he could not see  them.;.-. .������������������������������������;'','  "The noise seemed to come from down in the  earth. Next morning a party of men went back  to the place whence the noise came, and after a  search, they found apit 10 or 15 feet deep. The  rnorith was covered with hushes, and the growth  of the trees about the sides gave evidence that  it had not been used for centuries. There the  pigs were contentedly'rooting among- the broken  pieces of rock.  "A rude stone hammer and some charred  sticks gave evidence of earlier explorers who  had evidently gone away unsuccessful. The  hammer was of the same kind as the other implements, which had been ti'aced hack to the  days of the predecessors of the Indians whom  the French found in possession of the lands���������.the  Indians who built the mounds, and who overran  the whole country from Mexico to lake Superior,  where they got copper for theii- implements and  utensils.  JThe mound-builders, like the explorers who  had discovered the ancient pit, looked for copper  only in masses, as it had been deposited in fissure  veins and in the lava flows. The huge chunks  of virgin copper weighing many tons, and the  smaller masses hanging- in the rocks like metal,  icicles, were the only kind known to the ancients,  and the moderns had been assured by the learned  geologists that copper could .'be-found only in  rocks formed from lava.  "But the pigs had.turned oyer pieces of rock  formed by the action of water���������aqueous rock���������  arid in these conglomerates there certainly was  copper. This seemed a tind indeed. -Butwhen  the matter was reported, science scoffed at the  explorers, saying that the copper conglomerates  found were simply a freak of nature, and that  money would he wasted if an attempt were  made to work them.  "So mr. Hurlburt, who owned the lands, continued to give his attention to the Huron mine,  which was working the lava flows. For the  money he borrowed for the Huron, he gave to  Quincy Shaw of Boston the lands on which the  conglomerates were found. Mr. Shaw soon began to work these rocks, and from these beginnings, the richest, most stable, and the best  promising copper mine in the world has been  built up."  Meals, 25c.
