The Farwell vs. McGillivray, Teetzel,  Croft, Ashby, Perry, Heed, Houston  et al, dispute over the possession of the  McGillivray addition to New Denver  gives promise of a termination.  Word was received a few. days ago  that ii compromise had been effected hy  the counsel employed by the rival factions, and if nothing miscarries they  may all dwell, in peace and harmony  under' their own vines and fig trees  planted on the'dispuled ground.  As far us can be ascertained, the compromise gives Messrs Farwell and Fletcher- one-third of the entire addition. It'is  surveyed into about ]()() available blocks,  of 2-1 lots each, and Messrs Farwell and  Fletcher- are to have eight lots in each  block free of all costs. "That notorious  litigator-" A. S. Farwell left on Tuesday's  tram for Victoria to;look into the settlement, i  A committed of the Legislature, composed of J. M. Kellie. Henry Croft and  Messrs. Booth and Rogers, was drafted  Jast session to investigate the rival claims  to this properly. To prevent its reverting back to the crown a compromise was  effected and a crown giant was issued in  McGillivi-iiy's name. The holders of the  property then repudiated their agreement and Farwell tied the property up  in court.  JI is probable that a " convention" of  those interested in the remaining potion of the addition will be held .tor'the  purpose of ascertaining what's what.  DOVES AND RAVENS.  "A." large and appreciative' audience  greeted the performers in the Doves and  Ravens entertainment iu Carney's hall  last evening.  When the curtains were drawn bark.  arid the setting for the iirst-part was  revealed, a.generous round of applause  was tendered. The ladies were all dressed in white, with powdered toilets. They  were seated in a large semi-circle, the  alternate chairs being occupied by gentlemen in varied shades of Ethnpian complexion, and grouped hi front were the  six 'little cuily headed coons'in red  'nicker.-.'and copious collars arid cult's,  making a very pretty setting.

Wliat lie Says lie  Said.  Editor the Miner.���������Allow me to correct an inaccuracy which appears in  your issue ot 27th ult.  Describing a public meeting held at  Kaslo, recently, i am quoted as having  "stated definitely thai. Premier Davie  had informed" me " that West Kootenay would have two members or representatives in ihe next Provincial Parliament."  What I did say was to the following  effect, viz., that at a small gathering of  citizens who met the Premier on the  occasion of his visit Lo this ^towu, at  which gathering I was present, Mr.  Davie staled thai, in connection with the  redistribution bill the government might  well be induced to divide the Koolenays  iu a manner more suited to tlie geographical features and voting capacity of  ilie country.  . It my recollection serves me. Mr.  Davie's remarks were indicative of a desire to meet tlie people's wishes as regards additional representation, when  ttiose wishes were publicly expressed  and'the reasons therefore properly'put  f. rward; and 1 have no doubt that, the  intelligent efforts now being made to  impress oh our legislators tue present  voting capacity ot tnis.d_i6.tncl and. its  l-ii'piaiy growing importance politically  and commercially,'wnl have due ehect  in awakening a somewhat, lardy, recognition of I Iu.-. position in whicti the ef-  lorts of Kuolenayrtes and the well directed energies or- our soutliern  Dors luive placed our District.  Yours iruiy,  John L. Hktau.ack.  Too much emphasis cannot be laid  upon the claims of West Kootenay for  more adequate representation in the  next Legislature of the province.  The government must decide wheher  it is advisable to increase or decrease the  aggregate representation of the province  but in any event West Kootenay nius  have additional representation. It.- advancement as ii revenue producing dis-  fricl has more than kept pace with its  advancement in voting strength. The  latest government returns show i hat in  point of revenue producing it is fourth  on the list among ihe ot her distracts and  is but some $10000 behind-t he leading  district, namely Victoria city which  yielded a revenue of $98,212. New West-'  miuster district is second with ft revenue  of $83.2-17; Yale is third with $82,(XK),  and West Kootenay fourth wiih $77,081.  Vancouver city had but $-17,600 to its  credit.  I/The following table is made, to enable  readers to solve if possible ihe riddle of"  the present system of repre.--entu.ion.  The districts given have sufficient repre-  sentatious given them to make, up one-  third of ihe^entii-e provincial parliament  and West Kootenay, with one representative, contributes more than the whole1  combination to the public treasury :������������������  .

The songs, choruses, and jokes were  well received, several encores being demanded and responded to. Mrs. Davys  received an encore for her rendidtion of  ���������'Still 1 Love Thee" which also was accorded Mrs. Goepel's song "If we should  meet face to face."  The end men, Messrs.

He had computed that Kaslo would pole I  some 800 votes and compared this vote)  with five of the small outlying places to  show   the inequality of  tlie representation-assigned lor the convention.  $75,000   '    11  West Kootenay 900 $77,000 1  Why should Cariboo wiih half the  voteia that West Knotenuv -has, and  producing but one-sixth of'the income  produced by West Kootenay, have three  times us many representatives assigned  loir?  If it is necessary for compact little districts such as Cowichan and Esquimau,-  wiu, naif the voting population of West  Kootenay to have two members each,  does not. a. district of West Kootenay's  extent which stands fourth on the listoL*  revenue producing districts deserve at  least, three members? Jf not, does it not  appear that proximity to Victoria is the  _be.st_claim_l:hat-a-district-ciin-have-for-  consideration by the government of  British Columbia ?  There can he no quest ion but that 33  men...ers are sufficient to transact the  business of less than 20,000 voters. The  present inequalities should be equalized  by iessenirig-the representation of some  districts and giving such representation,  r.o West Kootenay and other districts  m'*'..desl.lv desering of it.

There   is   another   peculiarity  .about the Gold "Commissioner for- West  Kootenay, and   this   is   his   method of  reading the duties of his oflice.    He presided over the court of  revision  in  Nel-  ���������son-dnring-fche-hours���������prescribed���������by-law  -and   listened   to   a   uumber of appeals.  The court was closed, and at'tei wards he  .allowed the list to be tampered with and  .assessments   were   raised.    Those   who  were so treated did not make any  fuss.  They received notices setting out   their  ..assessments as lirst made, and  such  assessment they propose to pay, legardless  ���������of the illcgul revision.  " People will talk about 'such things and  .assign   causes.',  With    duties    defined  there should be no omission or variation  in their performance.   West Kootenay's  interests   are   too   important    to   ha^e  the adininstrative office toyed with.  -   DEGENERACY.

It, is well known  that Pony-Nino Cruel; go.d is wonh $18 an ounce  (See copy ol assay nppen.ted). 'i lie claim is half  a mile in length and 'i0i) feel in brea-iih���������.'v>0 feel  on each side of the creek. AL ditlurcut times Mie  claim has been worked. O. M. Dawson, D. S..  P.

Since that,dale allumpts at developing l.he the. claim have been made, bill, from  Jacket capital a.nd proper appliances, only the  high ground, winch contains the least quantity of  gold, was operated on, while the "pay streak."  was not lunched.  In August, |S;12, Mk. It. 11.

As a head of lifly-feot. is  not powerful enough to carry boulders'of oven  medium siwclhoy had to be removed by hand. 'A  considerable quantity of gold was saved���������suiii-  cient. to prove (hut. a handsome prolit, could be  ob'.ained wil h the assistance of prop.M-appliances,  (oee -\ii:. uici-.'s report) Mk. Hocijan made an  otl'er of the iiroperty to the syndicate, a coiidilion  boing that it, should he developed. The syndicate  accepted his proposition, and secured in addition  a claim, called the tt.

They nave ihussecurod a,continuous claim of one  and one-quarter nnies in length. These proper-  lies are held by lease, for a neriod of live years,  from the government. The leaic can be renewed  by law. from ihiine to time, as required.  Mk. J. E. ilicii, supoi-intendeat of ihe Kootenay Hydraulic works on the I'end d'Oroide river  in British Columbia, was ihen engaged to thoroughly prospect the claims and report thereon.  (See report annexed) Mu. llicu was accompanied  by MkSsks. Kiuiv is: l>iTCiru<:. civil engineers, of  Nelson, who mado a report on ihe work and plant  required lo equip the claim with the most ellici-  ent appliances, for securing the gold. (Seethe,  report annexed) At a meeting of"ihe syndicate j  held on Nov.

Limited Liability, with the .head oflice  at Nelson; capital slock, s.HW.OUO. divided into  20,0UO shares of 65 each : P>.0U0 being ordinary  sharcs, and 5,000 being preference shares, the  latter entitled to dividends of to per cent in priority to ordinary shares. The property is to he  purchased by the company, and paid for by the  allotment to the syndicate of !l,000 fully paid up  shares. It has been decided to oiler for sale the  5,(J(J0 preference shares, with the understanding  that applications for stock will not be accepted  unless accompanied by 00 per cent of the face  value. This will give the company ������J5,0i)t) with  which to proceed with works of construction arid  meet incidental expenses. It is confidently expected that ho further assessment will he  made, as the amount to provide a thoroughly  ellicient plant, and cost of management have beeii  carefully estimated.  Tho syndicate is taking advantage of the low  water to construct the dam and sluice boxes. It  is the intention to have everything ready to commence working the claim when liici'e is a sullici-  -ent, volume of-watcr-iie.\t-?piiiigra.iid,Tn-cn"iploy"a~  thoroughly experienced man as superintendent.  Respecting the. probahili.y of the property inlying, the syndicate believe that Mit. Rich's report  is a very eonser.vative statement of its value. In  this connection the following quotations will bo  of interest:  Pkokkssok Dawson, in his Annual Report.  (1SS7) to the Geological Survey of Canada, says:'  ." The future of placer mining deserves consideration, particularly from the following points of  view: In each proved auriferous district, the  poorer or less cuiicciitrafcd gold bearing ground  must necessarily surpass in area fll'at of the very  rich deposits, which alone pay for work with  primitive methods, and wiih the cost of supplies  and labor at high prices. Thus thecheapening of  lhe.seessentials, produced by improved means of  communication and by... tlie settlement, of the  country, coupled wiih the atl'uuliiig facilities for  bringing heaver machinery and appliances into  use, will enable the prolitable working of greatly  extended acres,"  In the same report Mk. Dawson also.says:  "There are quite a numher of valleys in which,  though the bed of the present stream has proven  rich, the deep ground or old channel has not yet  been reached, or if reached ha-, not been .-.alisfac-  torily tested. In all these ca.ses it requires only  more effective machinery and greater engineering skill to bo brought, to'hear, lo attain and  work the deposits referred to, and it is likely that  many of them will pay well when such means  can be applied at a reasonable cos(."'  Tlie following is from Ysui W'agenen's Manual of Hydraulic Mining: ���������'Hydraulic mining  presents fewer risks and more certainties than  any other department of mining, oilier dungs  being equal. It is simply a question of moving  gravel or soil from one piace to another. Given  "therefore, in addition to an, abundance of water  to move and wasli the gravel, ample space to  deposit itagain after it has been washed, and the  problem of obtaining a prolit has been reduced to  a mimimum. As ah example, tlie gold bearing  veins of the western L'niied States have an a vcr-  value of about ten dollars per Ion of quartz; ex- '���������  traded, ���������which ten dollars can be mined, transported to the mill, crushed, amalgamated relin''d  and sold at a grows cost of about eight dollars per  ton, or eighty per cent. The same gold vein after  passing through the labratory of nature, will consist of a gravel bed or deposit, worth about t wen-  ty cents per ton, which twenty cents may be secured and marketed at a cost of not over fivecents  or twenty-rive per cent. Other things being equal  therefore, hydraulic mining presents three times  the chance for profit that is found in gold-quartz  "mining, and one-third the ri*k, with the additional advantage that the extent and richness of the  gravel bed may be completely studied and ascertained before working it, and at a slight cost,  -while vein- mining is from the first to last, ah experiment and a chance. The records of mining  show that over seventy-fiive per cent of all the  gold mined within history has been derived from  tlie working of gravel beds."  and that, he was unablc'to test the bed-rock, owing, to the amount of water, but adds that "the  uneven nature of the bed-rock and ihe character  of gold distributed through the entire 'deposit  point to rich deposits in favored places." Further  on he says: "Samples taken lrom over a large  area, including the surface, sides, and foot of the  hanks, and surface of the channel, give an average of '.'0 cents per cubic yard.  Taking two-thirds, of the capneity of the  works, as stated by Mu. Ilic'ic, as. the working  average in twenty-four hours, that is, '2,000 cubic  yards, and 5 cents as the cost per yard, (the  ground holding "JO cents per yard of gold) we have  as profit, exclusive of the nature of gold in the  channel gravel and bed rock, S-WX) per day. Assuming that the ground is worked for ninety days,  there would be a clear prolit of ^7,000, or ������l.!HJ  per share on shares held by the syndicate, unci  preference shares, in a season.  Applications lor Stock.  Applications- for ten per cent preference  .stock, accompanied with M per cent of its face  tor   is   obtained, which v.ill   be  in   about   two  months.  J.

Kicc"* ticpoi-l.  Tin.; Niu.soN Hydraulic Mining Syndicate:  Gentlemen���������In pursuance of your instructions  lo examine and report on your property on Forty-  Nino creek, near Nelson, Briti.-h Columbia, the  working, value, and kind of plant required, I  hcrewil h submit the following :  The properly consists of one and one-quarter  miles in length along the course of the Forty-nine  ereekchanneJ, and tlie banks on either side for a  width ot 700 feet. 'I he present channel varies in  width from 50 lo DO feet, with a probable average  depth of 15 foot, idled for the most pari with a  compact gravel, a large proportion of which is  heavy boulders. The bed-rock is a coarse-grained granite, in irregular layers, forming a very  uneven bottom, making natural riffles favorable  for arresting the coarser particles of gold.  'tests made in an open cut in the channel  gravel for a distance of 70 feet gave returns of  one-half cent per pan, or about tjO cents per cubic  yard. Owing to the amount, of water 1 was unable to tost the bed rock with the facilities at my  command. Tlie uneven nature of the bed-rock  and the character of gold distributed through  the ciiiii-i; deposit point to rich deposits in favored places on the bottom.  Tlie channel gold is heavy, of a flat, angular  shape, comparatively coarse, and of a character  to save n the sluices. The rim bars or banks, on  either side, are in places extensive deposits that  vary in depth and extent, in some places showing  a depth of-10 to (SO feet, and extending over several acres, consisting for the most part, of a liner  gravel than that of ihe channel, and an occasional strata, of sandy clay, which varies in thickness  from a few inches to several feel. Gold is disseminated through the entire deposit, from grains at  the surface to heavy and coarser particles as  depih is obtained and the grave! more compact.  Samples taken from over a large' area, including  the surface, sides and foot of the banks, and the  surface of the channel, gave an average of 20  cents per cubic yard.  A. large number of places along (he creek  have been partially worked by the primitive  means of ihe early miner, such as the pan, hand-  sluice, and the rocker. The surface, however, is  only skimmed in places. The only attempt to  exploit the channel has been on tlie company's  ground by Mk. Dougan, mainly by man power,  whose .returns, from what dala I could gather,  averaged about. 80cents per cubic yard.  The conditions of profitable working depend  mainly on a large water supply at high pressure,  a grade necessary for the sluices,and ample dump  for the tailings. The water supply, from all information and .data that could he gathered, is  confined to the period between March and July,  or between throe and four months, which in this  case would be the length of the working season.  The supply for chat period seems to be ample.  By' the con-truction of a flume and  ditch of four-iifths of a mile in length a .vertical pressure of 300 feet is obtained, ample  for all purposes. The ditch and flume should  have a carrying capacity' of 900 miner's inches.  All details of grade, materials, and construction  are embodied  in  the appended planJjyJMteSiiS^  In order lo obtain the requisite dump, and to  bottom the channel at the points of exploitation,  a bed-rock cut of 250 feci in lenglh,"in connection  with a sluice line of 500 feet, is necessary. Under  these conditions the maximum grade attainable  i-; 1 hree-quarters of an inch to the ,"oot, or !) inches  per box of 12 feet. This gives a dump of (> feet,  which may he added to and increased by continuing (lie sluices on tlie same grade as the dump  rises to their level. The mode of construction and  class of material are shown in the appended plan.  M'oi-Iiiiig <a;;a<'������l.v.  The duly of a miner's inch varies with different conditions, running from .'! to.l cubic yards to  ���������Joa.nd :i0 per day, the latter result boing'bbtniiied  under highly satisfactory conditions. In this case  after the clearing of the channel. Hie maximum  capacity should not. be less than :t,000 cubic yards'  per twenty-four hours with a .sluice head of 1,000  inches, or':; yards to the inch. In most hydraulic  mines (he result exceeds this ligure. From aiuiin-  licrof California in i ucs, taken at-random, Ihe  work avcrages.'i.J cubic yards per inch, per twenty  four hours."  The co.-t of working varies with ihe amount  and .character of material handled, height of  h-inks, etc. In ordinary cases, with plenty of  water, dump, and oilier facilities, ground that,  will average 5 cents per yard pays a good proliit.  The Norlh Blooiiilicld mine, in Nevada county,  California, has worked ground for several years  at un average value of \i cents per yard.  .Machinery.  The machinery' necessary will consist, of a  pipe line of about 1.050 feet in length and two  monitors or giants. All of the details of size,  gauge", and construction of pressure-box are fur.  nished in the appended plan.  While the dump and grade of the sluices  leave something to be desired, the condition are.  in the main, favorable, and with intelligent and  skillful management there is no question as to a  profitable result.  -Much is due Mksshp.

KIIJK & KITCIIIE.  Probable Output ami ISeturns. i  Mr. Rice reports that "an open cut=in the J  channel gravel for a distance of seventy feet; I  gave returns of about 60 cents per cubic yard," '  The Nelson Hydraulic Mining Syndicate:  Jn accordance with Mr. Rice's instructions,  we present the following statement of details and  estimate of-cost of construction of hydraulic  plant, of most approved design, on Forty-Nine  Creek.  Hydraulic mining is carried on by propelling  a jet of water, under heavy pressure, on gold-  bearing gravel deposits, The gravel being disin-  tergrated. by this process and carried with the  water through the sluice-boxes. In its passage  the gold drops, owing to its great '-weight, into  receptacles provided therefore, and the refuse  gravel is deposited in a dump at the end of  the sluice.boxes. With proper appliances,  it is estimated that 05 per cent of the gold can be  secured. In designing a hydraulic system, measures have to be taken to secure the required  water pressure, sluicc-boxe^ grade to carry large  boulders, and an ample dumping ground.  Ilclails.  The h'-ad of water required in this ense is 300  feet.   To procure this it will be necessary to construct an artilicial channel from a point about.  i four-fifths of a mile up stream from ihe place sel-  ! ccted   for the sluice-boxes.   Al the head of the -  I channel a dam, about live icet high, will have lo  ' i.e built across the stream  to provide a regular  supply   of   water.      Owing  to   the   precipitous  nature  of the  ground   about  3,200  feet of the  channel will consist of a Hume, with a grade of  ',1.5 feet, in 1000; the remainder will  be an open  ditch.   The capacity of Hume and ditches, 1,000  miner's inches.    From the ditch to the monitors,  ihe water will be carried in a steel  pipe aboiit, ii  thousand feet long.   'Ihe sluice-boxes will he 500  feet long, with a grade of f) inches in 12 feel.  From the lower end of the sluice-boxes the  fall increases rapidly, affording ample dumping  ground. Plans and profile showing details ot the  work described aro herewith submitted.  Cost.

C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3,  1894.  -Iflcr Cable   I>oetor*.  The Maiquis of Lome, nt a meeting of  the Lmperiul Institute, at which Lord  Knutsfnrd presided, stated thai something might be done to improve the  news transmitted to and from the; colonies, and the. statement, that any arrangement securing transmission of news directly from the Mother1 Country to ihe  colonies, and vice versa, would be a great  boon, met, with great applause.  If tlio Imperial institute can enable  Canadian' newspapers to secure British  news without the present hostile American coloring it will confer a great, favor  on the Canadian people.  Lord  llaiiiM-n  living.  Lord Hannen, lord of appeal in ordinary and Behring sea nrbitratnr, continues to lose strength. He is restless, an.;  suffers much pain. There is not much  hope for his recovery.  That Little Canadian Cheese.  Canada's monster cheese, which arrived in L.mdon some time ago from Chicago, is still unsold, and is lying in a  London railway station, no private  warehouse being strong enough to bear  its weight. Only twelve inches of ihe  top has perished. The ideaor exhibit ing  the cheese has been abandoned. Several  offers for the purchase of the chuese  have been received, but they are not  high enough.  The Cireitt ]'rc;it:lier Resigns.  Rev. T. DeWitt TaImage at the close  of his sermon at the Tabernacle last  Sunday announced that he intended to  resign from the pastorate of the church,  the resignation to.go into effect on the  occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary  of his taking charge of the Tabernacle.  Tbcy are Reconciled.  Emperor William of Germany sent  Bismarck a bottle of very old wine with  an autograph letter congratulating him  on his recovery from his recent illness.  Bismarck sent a reply saying he would  call on the emperor next Week. The  meeting and reconciliation which followed pleased the German people more than  any event since tlie banishment of the  Prince from Berlin, and will have a  marked effect on the internal policy of  the government.  Answering Illegible Letters.  When you get an illegible letter from  a friend, don't lose your1 temper and write  him a scathing rebuke. Just sit down in  a good humor and concoct one like this  of Mr. T. B. Aldrichto Prof. E. S. Morse:  My Dear- Morse,���������It was very pleasant  to me to get a letter from you the ot bet-  day. Perhaps I should have found it  fleasanter if I had been able to deciper it.  don't think I mastered anything beyond the date���������which I knew���������and the  signature which I gussed at. There is  a singular and perpetual charm iri a. letter of yours: it never grows old; it never  loses its novelty. One can say to one's  self every morning: 'Here's the letter' of  Morse's. I haven't read it yet.,. 1 think  I'll take another shy at it to-day, and  maybe I shall be able in the course of a  few years to make out what he means by  those t's that look w's and i's that have  no eyebrows.' Other letters are read and  thrown away,- but���������yours-are-kept���������for  ever���������unread. One of them will last a  reasonable man's lifetime." .  Liberating Xcgro Slaves.  H.  H.   Johnston,   Imperial   Commissioner' to Central Aferica, is at Lake Ny-  assa avenging the treachery of Chief  Makanjiin. who caused the disaster to  Capt. Magu ire and hi* party. Old Makan-  jira has since been murdered, but. the successor to the heriditary title has now  been routed, all his positions have been  captured and a number of slaves have,  been released. Mr. Johnston's force was  lately augmented by a hundred Sikhs,  two British officers and the gunboats  Pioneer and Adventurer,, manned by  seaman. The British lost one man, one  Sikhand two irregulars were killed and  nine wounded.  WARNING.  . A local official of the Consumers  Water \y"orks company on Wednesday  morning requested the Miner, to warn  people against allowing their water taps  to remain open all night to prevent  them freezing.  There was no water on Wednesday  morning, and the officials suspect, that  some one allowed the supply to escape  by leaving a house service pipe open  during the night. -  Piano piece per Prominent Person.

Unless King John issues a. mandate to the contrary The probability is that the Dominion government  will continue to regulate the working of  criminal code, as it has in the past. Why  not give John Andrew another jibe?  Canada's Covernor (General.  Editor Stead, of t he Review of Reviews,  in commenting on Lord Aberdeen, Canada's new Govenor General say:���������  Lv<rd Aberdeen had hardly landed upon  Canadian shores before it became evident that he was much more than a mere  Governor-General. He was a living man  with wide and catholic sympathies, who  recognizhd that while it was necessary  to abide strictly within the constitutional limits in all political questions, in  non-political questions, which after all  occupy three fourths of human interest,  he was in a position which placed upon  him and his family the obligation of exercising all the influence which any  highly placed and cultured citizen is  bound to exercise. There is no doubt  but that Lord Aberdeen will find ainp.e  oppotunity of proving himself a servant  in deed as well as in name. There is  plenty to be done in Canada, and few  men are so capable of doing it as is Lord  Aberdeen.���������.Tradi tionally-anclpersiuia! Uy-  a protest ant, he has always cultivated  the most friendly terms with Catholics,  and one of the first and most significant  of his actions in the Dominion of Canada,  was to overcome by a litlle kindly diplomacy the obstacles which which have  hitherto prevented the friendly meejting  of Governor-General and the Cardinal of  Quebec. It may pass.the wit of -man to  invent any way by which the French  Canadian and the Orange Pro'est.ant can  be prevailed upon to recognize that each  are brothers in Christ as well gssubjects  of.the Queen.
