Late telegraphic dispatches sum up  the silver situation in the senate as fol-  lows:���������The situat ion in the senate fails  to show encouragement fo" those who  are making battle for urn. litional repeal. The repel forces are apparently  no nearer victory thatten days ago* and  it does not appear that they have made  a convert in the  senate for two  weeks,  and the prospect for unconditional repeat is not so bright asnvhen the repeal  bill passed the house.  Reepal senators have apparently lost  confidence, and the anti-repeal senators  have regained all the courage they lost  after the passage of the measure by the  house. Two weeks ago it was mysteriously rumored that the repeal forces  might demand a vote at any hour and  rush the measure through the senate'.  Now, no advocate of repeal can be found  who will prediet'with any' 'credence t hat  a,filial vote' will be reached before the  middle of October, and yet the numerical strength c of the repealers is as  strong in ,the senate, today as three  weeks ago; they have: an undoubted  majority, probably three-fifths, and  there can be no question of the result  when a final vote is reached. But when  the vote is. to come is the great mystery  of the future.  Under the rules of the senate half a  dozen senators can indefinitely prolong  the light and portpone the vote, and. if  they, are so inclined, may either defeat  themeasure or force a compromise.  The difficulty, however, will be ia agreeing on a form of compromise. No one  acquainted with the vice president and  his antecedents gives fhe_ieasbAcr.eden.ee  to the story sent out from here that he  will at a given time recognize Senator  Voorhees for the purpose of moving  the passage of the bill and refuse to  recognize anyone else.  into custody by U.

Those making the threats were informed by the commissioner that, any  interference with Captain Humane  while in charge of the receiver would  be followed by the arrest of, the guilty  party.  At the examination of the charge  against Ho ban, evidence was produced  that the State of Idaho did a forcing  commerce between the United States  and British America, aud that the order  appointing Hoban receiver was not  properly served to install him in legal  possession. ���������  MRU ITS COMPLETION  iTHE KASLO NOMINATIONS  SLIGHTLY EESEMBLE THE   FAMOUS  "HOBSON'S CHOICE"  There are Only two Mantes Flared in Xoniina-  (ion for Mayor, and tlie rive Aldermen  are Flattered by Ucccivnijr'heir Kleefiou  by Acclamation.

The Kamloops authorities are doing  all that lies in their power lo bring the  justice the supposed culprits, who while  endeavoring to blow open Vair's safe,  'succeeded in burning down a considerable portion of the. nown.  The day following the fire two tramps  passed through the town, " stepping tlie  ties." They were suspected, then- liberty  .was plotted against, aud a train which  overtook them slowed up so that the}'  could be invited to ride. They accepted  such an unusual invitation, but ��������� were  very much surprised to find themselves  under arrest wiieu the next station was  reached, on a charge of stealing a ride-  They were held long enough to satisfy  the authorities that they were not the  ones sought, after, and then set at liberty.  Two other men were suspicioned, and  traced as ftir as Sicamose, but they have  not yet been apprehended.  The Nelson & Port Sheppard railroad  continues to be pushed forward as  rapidly as possible, the track-layers  having reached a point not more than  twenty-six miles distant from Nelson.  Present indications are that the road  will be completed in time to reverse the  condition of things last winter, making  Nelson the central point of the district,  and the only means of ingresand egress.  The track-laying is being done with  machines, and as much as two miles per  day can be covered. There 100 men on  the track-laying and surfacing gang.  The surfacing is keep within one mile of  the track-laying. In conversation with  G. B. Wright, Contractor Larson predicted that by October 20, the rails will  laid to the Nelson depot. All the grading will be completed this coming week.  The Bonners' Ferry sleigh road was  kept open last winter solely because  those who wished to get in and out of  the. country were unable Lo escape the  exorbitant charges of the transportation  company operating the road. This winter everything will b(  changed.  Today the "bran' new" City of Kaslo  held a conclave ��������� for , the purpose of  nominating municipal officers for the  first term. The interest in the nominations was naturally lessened to a  considerable degree by a knowledge of  the fact that there, was not an overabundance of citizens in the town who  possessed all the qualifications necessary to render them eligible to the positions. Retiming officer Retallack ' was  on deck bright and early to register all  names placed in nomination. About  ten o'clock someone dropped and suggested that Bob Green would make a  good mayor, and shotly after George  Kane was placed against him. For  aldermen were named Sam Green, A.  McKay, Tom Devlin, Al Cameron, and  Dave Kane.  As no other   names   were   placed   in  nomination against these gentlemen, the  Returning Officer declaed them  elected.,  by acclamation.  PEOULIAE BANKING  Unearthed   l������y  Contractor McGillivray continues to  push along the work on the Nakusp and  Slocan. R. Marpole, assistant-superintendent of the C. P. R. was over the line  last week, and the report published in  the Muster that the road would be put  through to Three. Forks with as little  delay as possible is being verified. Next  spring will see the mines of the Slocan  with a railroad into their very center.  The Revelstoke & Arrow Lake road,  the connecting link in the C. P. R. system  is also in the hands of Contractor  McGillivray, and although but half of  the line is at present let out on contract  the completion of the road is so manifestly necessary that it too will be built  without materal delay.

An interesting and complicated case  grovvingout of an attempt to put the  steamer State of Idaho into the hands of  a receiver has arisen and is now pending at the Ferry.  During the construction of the vessel  at Bonner's Ferry the Holly  Hardware  Company sold the owner of the boat  $2,000 worth of hardware on credit, and  a little more than half of that sum is  still due. The hardware company commenced proceedings to foreclose a lein  on the boat for the material, aud during  the pendency of the suit applied to District Judge Holeman for the appointment of a receiver for the vessel.  This order was granted and Judge  John Hoban was named receiver. After  qualifying he awaited the arrival of the  vessel from Kaslo, and boarded her,  claiming the management under Judge: . , , - ,  Holeman's order. The owners of the Sliant' "'hose phice  vessel were not present, and Receiver  Hoban read the order of his appointment to Capt. Shaw, who appejred to  be in command  of  the   vessel's    crew.

Up   to  this   time   the learning of the  world   had   been   practically   tied  up in  manuscripts, too valuable  from the laborious  nature   of  the  production    to be  within the reach of the  masses.    Under  the  new   order  of  things, these   manuscripts could be multiplied at will to any  extent.   Men who before had shut themselves and theii ideas up from the world  which ! hey had felt they could not reach  now began   to   command  a  larger  audience, and books  and  pamphlets   multiplied.    The world awoke from its stupor  and   begcin   to   think.    Then  to   wonder  what  others wer*e  thinking  about, and  how   they   lived   and   what they  were  doing.    Demands   usually   meet  with a  demand in time, and one  day some gossiping  printer   collected  all  the   bits of  news and stray ideas let fall by the shifting crowd in his favorite tavern, strung  them   together  iu   some  quaint fashion  and occasiomilly printed a little pamphlet filled   with   them.    The  ancestor*  of  the newspaper   so   saw the light of day.  and carrying an added weight ��������� from  man's proneness to think the -worst of  his fellow man, its power for evil may  hardly be over-estimated.  Into the most sacred recesses of a  man's private life, crawl, these character  killers, carying little for truth, only desirous of a sensation. That they must  have at all -hazards. Their readers  demand it. There comes to mind a case  in point. Down on the coast is published  a journal, the special mission of which  is to pry. One department specialh*  devotpd to gossip bears the sounding  title: "I must have liberty.   -Withal a;  no more serious menace can be conceived  than this is, and will prove to be to  either a community or.a country. ������  It must not he .supposed that this loye  of back-biting  and   character-killing is  confined to   " the world,- the>'.fresh,' and  the   devil."

A  In those old days running a newspaper  was regarded as a most tremendous  affair, requiring unusual talent,  profound wisdom, and something  almost in the nature of a " call " to the  position. Some even went so far as to  advance the idea that " the heaven-born  mission" of journalism is; to educate and  elevate the masses, and the masses  accepted the idea and often showed  quite a becoming desire to be "educated  and elevated." ~ ' A -fountain however  may not rise higher than its source, and  it did not require the lapse of many  generations before those in charge of the  papers discovered that to be successful  they .must be willing to follow as well as  lead. The members of a certain community demand certain things of a'newspaper,-and���������they usually get them.  J. W. Prentis had been keeping books  for the B. C. Cattle Co.', and being the  possessor of an excellent voice he was  naturally enough attached to one.of-the  city church choirs. He for some reason  best, known to himself left Victoria  rather hurriedly without conveying in  due form to this Censor the why and  wherefore. The next week the man  with the "charter" blew on him as a  "psalm-singing defaulter," and proceeded to damn him as completely as lay in  "its" power. The man was down-  therefore fair game. Now it comes out  that Prentis' accounts were all right,  and some private .matters may have  caused him to leave town. All of this is  overlooked by he of the "charter." He  is too busy blowing his poisoned breath  on some other unfortunate.  Blue -Jay Minek.al Claim :  New Denver Minining District.    \  .rpAKE-,NOTICE THAT WE, R. E.

V  TliS.ftXSJS'OJit'rAYS'JK.V.'rBSIK T.MSsVj'IS  discouraged at times.  In  these  days  of  rapid  living,  rapid  thought, and ceaseless hustle and bustle,  a  daily  newspaper   that fails to give its  readers a fairly  good   idea of the major  events  that  happen   in   the  world that  .. day   would  be 'regarded as   behind the  times entirely.     The "heaven-born mission " has  degenerated  into  a scramble  for. sheckles,   though strangely enough  the old fiction of "elevating" the masses  is maintained to a considerable  degree.  Along with man's inate  love  of  loafing  and neglecting his own  business, nature  to retain   the   required equilibrium,-has  endowed   him with  a  special  weakness  for-'prying .into   and   attending   to  the  affairs   of other's.     Under-standing  this  'craving  it  is  not surprising that newspapers have come fco encroach more and  more  on   the  domain   of   private life in  their endeavor to pander to this taste.  In thinking over all  this I naturally  sought for a reason.    It was not hard to  find.    Man's   inhumanity to   man.    The  feeling  that   breeds   creatures,    mental  harpies,   happy   only   when   preying on  the fair names of another.    How prone  most people are to  think the worst, of a  neighbors'  shortcomings, and  to rather  rejoice'when   he  comes down through  some,  misstep.     This   taste  for scandal  carries  the  poisoned  half-hints,   of the.  veteran   gossip   on    its    death   dealing  rounds   against   some   fair   reputation,  which  withers  and  perishes as though  stricken  with   a   blight���������and " nobody  said a word."   A  wink, and a nod, and  an   eloquent,  pause has lent to many an  expression in itself innocent, the venom  to deal life-long misery.    This is a rapid  age.    Everything  must  be   done   in   a  hurry.    I   hope   this   pressure   will   be  crowded on until everyone will  be   compelled,   for   want   of    time,    to   attend  strictly  to   their own   affairs.    What a  mountain   of human    misery has   been  builded from leisure, time.  .Many have, and now are waiting for  a new religion. A religion which in  practice will cover with the broad  mantle of charity, the. weakness it is  striving to, cure, instead of blazoning  them abroad in church squabbles, pulpit  fights, sewing-circle scandals, and tea-  party tattle. A religion in which the  ministers and the people will be too  busy seeking for souls to save, aud good  to do, to call each other names. A religion  and a. faith that will be in practice more  than in preaching, that will help fallen  man up, instead of pushing him down ;  a church from which the surest road to  excommunication will he to speak evil  of another.

"T^T OTICE  -L���������     FAR\  "The   freedom   of   the press must be  maintained"   is   a cry. raised in the old  days   when   there   were   tyrants   to be  withstood, and oppressor's to overthrow.  It   meant   the   liberty to champion the  cause of right, struggling   as   it always  does   at   sometimes,   in   the   minority.  While the liberty of   the   press is being  fought for and maintained by leading  journals, the world over, there has crept  in on the borders of legitimate journalism, a set of sheets which confound  liber.tj'- with license, and find their chief  success in catering to a morbid desire for  " the shady side." Newspaper* criticism,  rightly handled can be made one of the : abandoned villain out of jail, where by  most valuable aids in maintaining the ; the way he ought to be.

The Selby Lead Works, of San Francisco, have had a representitive in the  Slocan lately making purchases of ore  and contracts for a continuous supply  for his company.  This company furnishes Whittier,  Fuller & Co., one of the largest western,  manufacturers of white lead, with their  raw material. It has been demonstratedc  that the Slocan ores, owing to their  freedom from arsenical and antimonial  compounds, produce a more easily  oxidized pig lead' than they have been  able to secure elsewhere,, it being soft  and easily worked and' producing a superior quality of lead* oxides.  might   be found on  Vancouver   Island  down to the present time.  Though sounding a little like a clipping from a townsite circular, it may be  all right,  though  some   might   wonder  just why the specimens should not show  "indications of permanency," and where  the   gold would  be  distributed if   not  "through the rock."  it.i\'Bi!.\<; Eiorsiis.

Everyone in  business in the Kootenay, this year has  been forced to recognize that collections  have been .difficult to . make.' When  .merchants- are' una tile, to .make their  collections it follows that they cannot  meet their own obligations as promtly  as they should.  In the face of such a. state-of'things it  is pleasant to know that the-representative- of,the'eastern creditors will assure  them that the major portion of their  cerdits in the Kootenay are perfectly  safe, and that his report will .tend to  strengthen their confidence in the district and encourage r.hem to increa.se  tlieir volume of   business   with   it.

As a result his own  faith in the country has been fortified,  and his verdict respecting the obiiga-  tibiis "owing to his company's eastern  clients is " It is a li right. It is only a  question of wailing for a little while."  High l* here it may be remarked that  "West Kootenay suffers to a considerable  extent from the disorder common to the  west���������over* speculation. The debt or class  in the west numbers in its ranks a very  large proportion of men whose honesty  cannot be called into question.

Those who have discredited the claims  of West Kootenay as an ore producing  district must soon be prepared to dismiss their doubts if they are at all  honest.  "Despite the unexpected depression and  the incomplete state of the transportation system, two circumstances which  in the average mining country deter-'  mine its life or death, West _ Kootenay  is shipping-and will continue to ship so  long a,s transportation can be secured  for large quantities of ore..  As chronicled last week, the C. P. R.  with commendable enterprise has  reached out, aud in the face of difficulties of no mean order has secured the  bulk if not all of this work. Several  shipments have been made by way of  Kelson over the (J. P. 11. system to the  smelters of Tacoma and   San Francisco.  This week however witnessed the departure of the first ore train from the  district, and if the Mixpr has been correctly informed, the first to leave the  province.    It moved out of Nelson  with  ECaiiuor.s of a Discovery of JCicIt '^uairlx Xcar  ESiwaK'iives Creek.  News has been received from the  coast of a strike of gold bearing quartz  on Vancouver Island.

GOING,  uuns  the following account of the new find:  Letters received from Alberni state  that assays made; from quartz taken  from the tunnel in the Golden Ragle,  the discovery claim, resulted in a return  of $600 in gold per ton. Assays made at  the government office in Victoria from  samples secured by Mr*. Oarmichael on  his visit to the mine, have given as high  as $2,000 per ton.  The assay of rock from the ledge  located by Frank McQuillan at the head  of lliwatchees Creek, also gave large  returns.  There is considerable excitement, in  Victoria over the discoveries, and many  prospector's, professional and amateur*,  have, left for* the field for- the purpose of  locating a claim. There arc several  practical mine owners and mining men  in the city at the present time who have  seen the various ore specimens in the  possession of Mr. H, Saunders, and all  pronounce the ore to be remarkably  good, and say that it has every indication of permenency, the goid being  distributed through the rode.  Nothing more definite, has been  learned than the information obtained  from Mi*. Carmichael's visit, except the  reports from assays and various reports  about Frank NcQuillarr's find. Tie is  said to be making good pay by the  primitive mortar and pestle process.  Mining men generally concede that  there is good reason for* believing that  a rich gold quartz country has been  discovered.

The first meeting of the first  municipal council was held in'th������:. government  oHiiees this afternoon in the presence of  as many citizens as  the  limited space  would accommodate. .,. ������������������  The Mayor in his inaugural address  complimented tlie Aldermen," as representatives of the citizens, for their  tireless endeavor* to secure incorporation  and personally for their individual'merit  which had prompte&'the- citizens' to so  honor them as to elect them to be their  first representatives in the new municipality.  He then called their attention to the  fact that as the municipality had but  recently been called into existance their  labors would necessarily be arduous, as  upon 'them would devolve the duty of  froming such by-laws as would best  conserve and protect the commercial,  educationaland other material interests  of the new municipality, known as the  city of Kaslo (cheers and applause).  With this fact in mind he desired if  possible, to expedite matters to the best  of his ability; and to this end had. a few  suggestions to make which he desired  the council to duel}1- consider.  " In looking over the Municipal Act I  find there is one clause which I think  should be removed, and I would suggest  that the council memorialize the provincial government to have the same  stricken from the act. ft deals with the  property qualifications of any'candidate'  for mayoralty -honors; requiring' him to  have value in property of not less than  $500 above any registered judgement or  chattel mortgage. Such a stipulation I  consider a heavy elog on I he wheels of  Kaslo's municipal machinery, and -one  which cannot but deter many of our  leading citizens from accepting positions  of trust and honor on the -municipal,  board.. ��������� A  " I would also suggest that the members of the council-withdraw all confidence and support from the provincial  government until such time as all bills  contracted in connection with the Kaslo  wagon road be settled in full by he  government, and that body shows a  more satisfactory indication of its intention to continue such a line of policy in  the future.  "I consider it advisable to pass a bylaw authorising the appropriation of  $1,000 iu aid of the Kaslo-Slocan railroad.

"A home,for destitute and infirm real  estate agents is also needed. A by-la,w  should be passed during the present  year authorising the appropriation of  $10,000 for the erection and maintain-  enceof such an institution.

These men are deserving of the public  attention and should receive it.  "A by-law should also be framed with  provisions l-estricting Nelson merchants  from making more than  one collecting  tour during a period of twelve  months-  such tour.to be of a duration not exceeding twenty four hours; and to   be made'  only during the months  of July   and  August,when  the   climatic    conditions  are   most   favorable   to   camping   out.  Applications for license  to   make such  tours shall be made to the  mayor,   who  shall give one months notice of intention  of granting such collecting license,  said  license not to become   valid   until   the  consent of the council is obtained.  " In conclusion I would suggest that  a by-law be passed appropriating $50 to  defray the expense of cabling to Hon.  ~W. E. Gladstone a resolution of our entire approval of his home rule policy,  and the assurance of our continued  support."  A hearty round of applause attended  the close of the mayor's remarks,   after  which the senior member of the council  thanked the mayor on behalf of his  colleagues for his friendly greeting,   and  complimented him  on  the many   suggestions which he had made to the council, and assured him that they would  receive due consideration,  and   doubtless acted upon   in  a manner  not  only-,  satisfactory to the mayor and council  but to the municipality at large.

Columbia from Revelstoke a short time-  ago. The Prince is travelling " in-cog "  and everywhere refused public attention.  During the trip on the steamer an incident occurred which gave the Prince's  aid-de- camp a shock which he will long  remember. It was lunch time, and the  Prince's retinue were standing behind  their chairs waiting for the Prince to  seat himself, when the steward of the  steamer, thinking that the foreigners  were travelling with an excessive, "store  of modesty, sang out encouragingly;  "Sit down! sit down!! anywhere 'where  you like."
