Value  Declared   a   Itraw.���������BMilandcr*  Refase to Play on" (lie Tie  "  That Evening.  The hookey mutch played last Saturday evening in the Arcade rink between  the Roesloud and Nelson teams was one  of the best exhibitions of hockey ever  given in the Kootenay district. The  visitors were on their return from a trip  through the northern Sloeau towns, in  which the Sandon and Kaslo teams fell  easy victims to their prowess and naturally expected to. add one more to their  list of victories. Tbe game was to have  been played in thfr afternoon, but1 as the  visitors only arrived the city about noon  and complained ot feelings little wearied  after the trip on the boat from Kaslo, the  home team agreed to postpone the match  until evening to allow tbem an opportunity ot resting and getting into good condition for play.  A large number of spectators attended,  the standing room in the rink being  crowded, and such was the fame of the  visitors that bat few expected \ that the  home team would make much showing  against them. These tew however showed their confidence by taking any bets  offered by the Boeslanden. and a considerable amount of money was wagered on  the result Before the game started the  captains of the two teams agreed with  the referee that in case of a tie, the game  should be continued for fifteen, miuutes  or until n deciding goal was scored.  The two teams lined up at 8:20 and tbe  puck was placed in motion. From the  start lhe game was lively and the rubber  wm frequently in close proximity to gbul  but five minutes elapsed before a goal  wm soored by a well directed shot by  Thompson (or Nelsou. Rossland scored  the seooud goal in 12 minutes, and when  halt time was called both teams had  three goals to their credit. Id tbe second  half, every effort was made by each team  to win. Rossland scored first, after  hard fight of tea  tbem a lead which was soon changed by  Nelson scoring the next two goals. The  visitors scored tbe next goal, making the  score agniu a tie. The hour allotted for  play was now almost up and both teams  played fast and furious to score a deciding goal. Tbe superior staying power  of tbeNelsoo team was now plainly visible and the nuck was constantly in the  vicinity of the Rowland goal. Neither  side however succeeded in scoring again  until the referee's whistle announced  time. On hearing this the Nelson goal  stopped playing and a Rossland forward  shot the puck between the posts, but the  goal was not aliowed-by-the-refe_ee,ioir-  the umpire,   ... ,;;.-....  ;,-'���������-  According to agreement a deciding  goal was now to. be ployod; but either  because the Rossland > team bad money  on the game aud were afraid of losing it  or did not wish to return home defeated  they refused to play any more. The  game was accordingly declared a draw  aud all bets docliired off. The Nelson  players remained on the ice for fifteen  minutes ,nnd then claimed the game  nuder protest. Mr. E. C. Senklcr referred the game to the satisfaction of both  players and spectator.. Messrs, Rae ot  Rossland and Migblon of Nelson acted  as umpires and Messrs. Carley and Love  were tim. keepers., The crowd was very  enthusi. stic throughout the game and  any brilliant play by either side was vigorously applauded. Great disappointment was expressed by the audience at  the refusal of the visitors to ploy a deciding goul, which tbey certainly had no  reason to decline doing after having  entered into the agreement. The Nelson  boys showed great improvement in their  play since their match here with Sandon  a few weeks ago and are now in condition  to hold their own with the crack teams  of the Kootenay.

They are kept busy making  and repairing machinery for the mines  of the vicinity. They recently completed  a contract for the water hydrants for  Grand Forks. The works were established in July 1807 by J. A. and W. B.  Honeyman, who are experienced founders  and metal workers, and are provided  witb as good and as large mscbinery ns  any in the province. They also.employ  only the most competent workmen. This  is an industry winch is a great coaveu-  ience to mine owners and should receive  every encouragement.  A Bicb Mineral Uelt.l  There is at present a great deal of interest being taken by mining men and  investors in the gold and copper belt  comprising Forty-nine and Hall creeks,  ���������which from present indications bids fair  to become the richest mining district in  the Kootenay. The district includes the  Silver King, Fero, Northern Light group  of the Bright Prospects Co., Referendum  and Athabasca. The Fern, Northern  Light and Referendum are free milling  // **-**:.  propositions, all ot whioh are being developed and show well defined bodies ot  ricL^ oxidized quarts. The Northern  Light group carries values in the ledge  at a depth ot seventy-five feet of ilOO per  ton oheifly gold and shows a width ot  ledge matter of 44 inohet. There are  many other floe prospects in this section  on whioh there is but little development  work done, but which show rich bodies of  ore from surface indications. The prospects are that this district will be a very  attractive one for investors during the  oottiog year. -         1      ������������������     .��������� ��������������� ��������� *.  lUM <ild������*d __<-___ the U Hot.   c'  At the regular meeting of the Le Boi  Mining and Smelting company held in  Spokane on Tuesday last it was decided  not to declare any dividend for January.

It is said that they  are now thinking of bringing the  Crow's Nest Pass line, up "Summit  creek from the Kootenay lake .and then  down Sheep creek,.which rim's into the  Salmon and consequently joins Mr.  Gorbin's' line. This route is probably  quite practicable arid as easy pf construction as the route along the 8__6re  of Kootenay lake.  It is some comfort to reflect that  oven if the Spokane line should be  absorbed by the C.P.It, -'Jim" Hill has  n way open into Kootenay by means  of the Kelson & Bedlington line, which  is a going concern and no dead letter.  Mr. Hill will be a much tougher morsel to swallow than Mr. Heinze or even  Mr. Corbin.  TOM TIDDLERS GROUND.  SATURDAY, FKB. 5. 1898.  THE BATTLE OF RAILWAYS.  The ; purchase. by the C.P. lt. of Mr.  Heinze's interests in Trail Creek is an  event of no little importance in the  history of the development of Kootenay. The lords of the great railway  have declared over and over again that  they are determined to get control of  the carrying trade of this country.  When they make up tlieiv minds to.a  thing they generally carry it through  and just now they happen to be in a  position to command large sums of  money with which to satisfy their  ambition.  It is the custom of the country to  regard/ the C. P. R. as-a'graspipgi.i.i.on-  opolyvof thewickedoBikimr'Tfie tale  of i^'exhdrSftrifc charges is long and its  greediness it described even to the  point of cutting off its own uose. It is  frequently stated that it actually stifles  trade by' its -ruinoils freight charges.  Npw all this may he true. It is unfortunately too often the method pursued  by American railway men, in the pursuit of what they call business. It is  however no less tho method of every  business man even in the smallest way  to "cinch" his customers when he gets  the chance. Instances .are not unknown even here:'.."ill" Nelson. That  other railways are equally grasping is  shown by the tact |lmt the Nelson and  , Fort-Sheppard-ra jlway.i.in^the-hope.  apparently of providing nourishment  for' its own bantling at Northport,  actually charges more from Hall Siding to Nelson than from Ymir to Nelson. If therefore the heel of the iron  horse grinds somewhat sharply upon  our necks we must riot complain, it is  the way of iron horses, nor must we  BritishvColtfmbians forget that only a  few years ago, we lay down and  grovelled in the iniid to beg of this iron  horse to come and trample on us. AVu  sold -om''"birthright,'".free trade, and  delivered ourselves body and soul into  bhe keeping of this monster, and if he  turns and "rends us now wo have only  ourselves to blame.  It is however a well known habit of  these great beasts, that wherever two  of them come together they cease from  grinding down the public and direct  all their endeavors to cutting each  others throats? It should therefore be  the object of everyone in this country  to do all they can to prevent any one  line establishing a monopoly over us.  Such a task is almost, if not quite  beyond the efforts of an unorganized  public and as such it comes rightly  within the province of the government  to protect the people from a danger  that they are practically powerless to  avert themselves. '������������������  Rumors from time to time fly round  of the possibility that the 0. P. It. may  purchase Mr. Cot-bin's line to Spokane.  There is no doubb they would like to  have it. They have swallowed Heinze  who in spite of his vast reputation for  shrewdness and ability' was easily  bluffed and finally checlimated in about  two moves. Mr. Corbin is a man of  different metal. He is not to lie  caught by chaff or -the purchase of a  few bricks to build a fabulous smelter.  But there is. of course a price at which  the line would 1>3 sold and'if the wiles  aud ruses of Van Home fail to provoke other response than an eye-wink,  straight cash will' probably do tho  business at once. Ibis hoped however  that this will not happen.  A curious rumor has been in circulation for the last few days which may  Newcomers   to this country   must  think tho old British Columbians a poor  lot.   Hero we have been sitting down  upon our mines for years and years  and now we allow all kinds of outsiders to come in and reap the golden  fruits of working them or of ' .-promoting" others to work them, the latter  being the richer harvest of the two.  The old saying that a prophet is not  without honour save in his own country breaks down in this case.   British  Columbians have been for years singing the praises of their   mines.and  inviting their fellow countrymen from  tho east and their kin from over the  sea to come  and   help   work them;  Their words were unheeded andjjfell  upon deaf ears, like the roar "of thijl  surge upon the cliffs or the whistle of  the wind upon the everlasting mountains.   There ax-e certainly one or two  exceptions to whom honor is due.  Mr.  Croasdaile floated the Silver King and  Mr. J. R. Robertson succeeded in organizing the L. & B. C. Gold Fields.  There were others who were not distinct successes.    But the bulk of the  mining itself has been done hymen  from the south and some of the promotion of companies.    In this latter  business the astute Yankee is a novice  beside  our   own  compatriots.     For  methods that amaze, and prospectuses  that make one gasp, they are uni-ival-  led.    Properties   are ~ mentioned ,to  which they have no more claim than  tlie man in the steet; groups of claims  in remote mountains, with ho more  work done on them than is necessary  to     drive     in      a   post.     become  mines; and future possibilities of luck  are gravely set forth as inducements  to purchasers.    And they catch on.  Millions are subscribed to buy shadows.  There is not a British Columbian who  is at all acquainted with the mining  districts of this province' who .could  not offer something  better,   and he  might as well offer peanuts to the skylark that sings in the summer sky.  Unfortunately this class of promotion does our country great harm.  Already more than one company promoted and worked on "brass band"  lines has made a bad business of it and  there are others that must surely follow in the same way. It is a matter  in which the public is almost helpless  Individual effort is of no avail; the  government can scarcely interfere, it  remains then for the press to take a  hand the job. It is obviously their  duty and their privilege to protect  thei_M;ouT_tl-y's~infef^s~^  The fear of libel need not deter them.

The critical condition of atTairs in  China may or may not be interesting  to Kootenay readers. But China possesses the rjchest veins of silver ore  ever yet discovered, and if ever she  begins to work them with the abundance of cheap fuel and cheaper labour.  She has at hand, good bye to the silver  mines of the Sloean; At present how-  over the policy of the Celestial empire,  peculiar as it may seem is our salvation. According to Chinese ideas, as  long as their abundant deposits of coal  and minerals remain untouched in the  earth they are theirs, they can sit and  gloat over them.

Tbe people of California are celebrating  tbe fiftieth anniversary of the discovery  of gold in that state, with a Mining Fair,  which opened at San Francisco la_t  week. The ._t������ry.:bf the discovery: of  gold is as follows: -'  Towards the close of the Mexican war,  John A. Sutter, a Swiss emigrant who  went to California iu 1839, employed a  roving adventurer named James Wilson  Marshall 'to "han't up u good site for a  flour mill.    The point' selected was on  the north  fork of the American river  about sixty miles north east of where  Sacramento now stand..   The mill was  completed by  the middle of January  1848.
