UELSO^,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA^ SATUEDAY,   OGTOBEE   31,   1891.  $4 A YEAE.  J  PREFERS'IIIS    OWN    OPINION.  To the Editor" of The Miner: John Rob-  son's letter, in your last week's issue, is inaccurate. Possibly his studies may not have included  the subject with which he deals.    The case is  simply this:    I held for a period certain administrative offices in   this  district.    Mr. Tunstall  succeeded rue, and his succession to thnse administrative offices was, of eourse, gazetted.    But I  held at the time of mr. Tunstall's succession, and  still hold, a judicial office,-namely, that of stipendiary magistrate /for the whole province.    I  believe I am the  senior  magistrate.    My first  commission  as a magistrate is dated 31  years  ago, and, though I have had both civil and erim-  inal jurisdiction, no decision of mine has been  quashed.    For this I seek no credit but the credit  of having diligently studied every case on which  I have had to adjudicate.   I have always felt the  grave responsibility of sitting in judgment on a  fellowman, who,   perhaps,   but for  certain   accidents of  life, might-' have  been judging me.  The Gazette notice,  which  mr.  Robson copies,  refers solely to the administrative offices mentioned.    It could not have includedthe ."judicial-,  office, because the office of a magistrate is only  determinable���������as I supposed everyone knew^-  either directly, by writ under the great seal, for  good cause'shown arid stated, such as proved  criminality, or malicious, corrupt, or oppressive  action in his office, or indirectly, by a new general commission from which the name of the  magistrates is omitted.   This is the A B C of constitutional practice.    The rule, in its application  to  inferior judges, is  deduced and established  from the positive declaration in the act of settlement, in the reigii of William III, with reference to the superior judges, who cannot be removed while they properly demean themselves,  or without an address from both houses of^parliament.    There is, as a matter of law, this distinction, namely, that the superior judges do not,  and ..'magistrates   do,   hold   office,   nominally,  during pleasure, but this is merely to avoid formalities and inconvenience, in  the case of the  latter, when for good cause, it becomes necessary  to remove a magistrate.    They ail are on the  same footing, so far as the will of the crown is  concerned, according to constitutional practice,  which has the force of law.   Magistrates are not  answerable to the executive governments    The  independence of the judiciary���������a* well the inferior as   the  superior judges���������is   one  of   the  main buttresses of our English freedom.    The  subject, lately, has been "much discussed, in connection with Irish affairs."    You -may remember  that the heaviest charge which the Gladstonians  could allege against mr. Balfour, was that he  was trying  to instructor influence the magistrates, who, for this reason, were cleverly nicknamed   "Balfour's  Removables."   There  is,   in  Ireland,   and  in  the  Northwest Territories  of  the     Dominion    of    Canada,    and     limitedly,  in    our   districts,   an    anomalous   mixture   of  administrative    and   judicial  functions,   which  very easily expose a government to the  odious  charge  of   interfering   with  the judiciary.    In  England it ,is the queen's bench division of the  high court of justice which exercises a general  superintendence over the  conduct of those to  whom the administration' of criminal justice is  .committed.    The;whole   subject   is interesting  and branches in various directions, but I cannot  trespass  further  on   your   space.    However,    I  ought to add, as relevant  to  the subject being  discussed, that it was stated clearly, by the lord  chanceller, last year, in n debate in the house of  lords,   that   a   magistrate  of  a lar'ger jurisdiction    (say   the   province)   is   not   expected    to  act,   and,   indeed,  cannot  properly act   within  a    sectional    area   (say   West   Kootenay)    for  which   a   magistrate   has   been   specially   appointed,  unless  such latter  is, for any reason,  unable to  act.    This is precisely what I  have  done here, on the particular request of the local  magistrate or justices in each case, and generally  with loss and   inconvenience to  myself���������but I  suppose  we  all  must consent to perform some  public duties.    Doubtless, in my old (I am sorry  if I must say my "former") friend, uir. Robson'������  experiences on all sides of politics, and in your  own Qdysseyan wanderings, you both have  leamed something, but, in a matter of constitu-  fional law arid practice, I prefer the opinion of  the lord chancellor, and the result of my own  not restricted examination of the question which  has been raised in the correspondence above referred to.    Your obedient servant,  Nelson, October 29th. G. M. Sproat.  '���������������������������-'.-":..v    COURT   OF    REVISION. ���������,  Mr. justice Walkem held a court of re vision  for the lists of voters for this part of, Kootenay  on the 27th and 28th instant. The list includes voters for the Dominion house of commons and has noreference to the local assem bly.  Great patience  and  care have  been   bestowed  upon   the   lists   which   will   be   published   for  the information of the community.  Considering  the infancy of this place, the lists for Nelson,  Ainsworth, and Balfour are unexpectedly large  and compare favorably with those of the oldest  districts on the Mainland.    They bespeak a good  ���������-population���������say 2000 at  least���������in these towns.  We expect to see five times this number in less  than two years, as mining operations how pro-"  jected and under way Will by that time, if not  before, itiake this locality known far and wide  for its enormous mineral wealth.   A miner, who  saw the first rush to Leadville, states that in his  opinion the discoveries are far, richer than those  found there.    But, in the case of Leadville, capital accompanied the first prospectors and thus  led to a speedy development of that rich section.  Had the same good f ortun e befall en us, m ills  and  smelters  would have dotted this  country  and .have;'.;converted, our ores into a negotiable  currency, which it will take a little longer, under  present circumstances,  to set free and   bestow  upon the public.  4������oo<I,  Solid Men  Becoming Interested.  Several Of the solidest men in Westminister  have  acquired   interests   in   the  lake  country.  This week Alexander Ewen, John Hendry, and  T. J. Trap p. accompanied by W. C. Hay ward of  Victoria and George T. Kane of Kaslo City,  came in to take a first look at their in vestments.  They went up as far as Ainsworth and Kaslo  City, and report .themselves as satisfied with  what they saw. They go out tomorrow by way  of Little Dalles and Spokane Falls. No 3 men  have done more for Westminister than inessrs.  Ewen, Hendry, and Trapp, and they deserve all  the good luck they have had.  NOTICE.

There is one point of di If erence bet ween the  Slocan excitement and all others that have occurred on the Pacific coast in the last 30 years.  The point Of difference is that there are no  human wrecks stranded along the trails leading  to the lately discovered DEldorado.    Every man  is either an ingoing millionaire"' in prospective or  an outcoming millionaire in ���������.���������reality, and if the  excitement last$ another .month',-.there will not  be a pOor man in the Kootenay Lake country.  When not owners of mines rivaling in richness  the -famed ones of the Cotnstock, they will be  the owners of corner lots in townsites that are  sure   to  develop  into   wondrously   prosperous  cities or of lands that will be as fruitful as those  of Chilliwhaek  on   the   Eraser.    Nelson   today  has half a hundred men, who, like colonel Sellers,   have   schemes With    millions   in    them.  Tom    Wai'd    is    one    of    the    wealthiest    of  these,     Arthur     Dick     coming    second,     and  George     Bigelow    third. .   Tom    and    Arthur,  born, and bred on farms, have their millions tied  up in meadow lands6at the lower end of Slocan  lake;  George, profiting by past experiences in  towns like Laggaiv and Donald, vyhere millions  were made in reality, has his in corner lots in a  townsite somewhere over on Lower Arrow lake.  Others, like Jim Delaney, Jack Walsh, and John  Tolson,  have prospects of untold  undeveloped  millions on Little Slocan lake.    All this goes to  prove that the days of Cariboo���������days that are  dwelt on so fondly by every old-timer in British  Columbia, from judge to day laborer���������are on the'  eve of returning.  The news from the district goes to confirm  previous reports. A number of men will winter  there, taking in their;Supplies by way of Slocan  river. The Slocan is about 40"miles in length,  and is reported having about one-third good  boating water as to-two-thirds'bad. The trip  can be "made in 3 to 4 days with boats carrying  from 1000 to 1500 pounds of freight.  Holds Regular Meetings.  To the Editor of The Miner: In your issue of The Miner of the 17th, vou state that  miners' unions were organized last spring at  Nelson and Ainsworth, and for a time the meetings had a fair attendance, but of late no meetings have been held. The above statement, mr.  Editor, may be true as regards Nelson, but as  regards Ainsworth, allow me, as a charter member,, of'the "Ainsworth- union and a regular at-  t e n d ant, to d e n y the a hove state me n t. No regular, meeting night'has passed since its organization that the neetihgs have not been held, and  very well attended. The last meeting reported  63 members, enrolled, 35 of whom were present.  The union here is a live one, and is here to stay,  is in splendid condition morally, intellectually,  financially, etc.    Respectfully,  William Hennessy,  President Ainsworth Miners' Union.  Ainsworth, October I6th, 1891.  Hope to  Keep Communication Open ail   Winter.  The steamer Lytton will.- be kept on the route  between Revelstoke and Robson as long as the  stage of water will permit and afterwards be run  between Little Dalles and the mouth of the  Kootenay river. Captain Gore has been on the  sick list for a week or two, and captain Short  did not like to make the run from Robson to  Little Dalles fearing.that he would be unable to  bring her back over the rapids above the  mouth of the Kootenay. Captain Gore is again  in command, and the 'Lytton will run down to  Little Dalles on Tuesday (November 3rd); returning north, will pass Robson on Wednesday.  Th e r i v er between th e m o u th of the K oo ten ay  and Little Dalles is all right, except in a few  places, which with care can be navigated. The  Columbia & Kootenay railway will, be operated  as long as the boat "is run ; and, in fact, it is  thought that communication via Little Dalles  will be kept open all winter.  iPl:  m^^^M^^^^^^^^B^^^m^^^^mm^^^mm^m^w^^^s^mm ������������iMi^^ \*j+juz&i*r&mW!Vl^i���������&&Jtttttol^^  : 'jfy-ffMii wfKP>.-x:s������>������iii&.i ^^;'j^-:^^������jai!  !J^K^^ki^Vt^������3^  THE MINEE:    NELSON, tB.  0.,  SATUEDAY,   0CT0BEE 24,  1891.

A   ROWISOAT    WITHOUT   OAlfcS.  In rowing a boat the avearge man is apt to  become cross-eyed in looking over his shoulder  to see if he is going on the right course, to say  "nothing of the time he loses in zigzaging to keep  in the right direction. He is also apt to be just  a trifle clumsy in handling the oars, skimming  wit h one and ca t chirig a crab with the 61 her.  A new and simple devise has been patented by-  Charles E. Fox of Minneapolis, Minnesota.    It  is designed not only to propel a boat with great  facility, but to afford the operator the very desirable advantage of going face foremost. The device is readily applicable to any row boat.    The  primary object is to run the boat by a screw  propeller, the shaft of which passes through the  stern of the boat through a packed bearing, the  shaft being inclined slightly so that the propeller wheel is submerged. At a suitable point in  the boat is a vertical yoke frame secured to the  bottom of the boat, the. frame carrying at its  upper portion a double crank shaft provided  with a. central sprocket wheel. Below this is  journaled a ^secoud shaft carrying a sprocket  wheel and a bevel-gear wheel, which engages a  horizontal bevel that turns a short vertical shaft  which is journaled to a step hearing below.  This shaft, by bevel gear, causes the screw shaft  to rotate. This arrangement is satisfactory in  every respect, and will allo^v the boat to be propelled in very narrow channels.  cr>  O  t^  CD  ������>  nzi  CD  OQ  c+  &>*  o  CD  er+-  O  bd  ���������������     ZZ2  o  <  CD  02  t-i  CD  CD  e-t-  O  CD  c-t-  O  B���������<  OIB1   TOR03STTO,   OZESTT^IR-IO.
