While the Kootenay Bonanza is  flooded, prospecting operations yvith the  diamond drill yvill be conducted from  the surface.  A. B. Campbell, oi' Finch and Campbell of the Idaho "Gem,*' is in Trail  Creek looking after his mining interests  there.  Oyving to the stale'of the road the air  compressing and crushing niacin'nery  cannot yet be taken up the hill. There  are still 7 feet of snoyv at the Silver-  King.  __t the Kootenay Bonanza they are  having some trouble yvith water caused  by the rapidly melting snow under the  bright sun of the past few days. Fourteen men yvith hand pumps and buckets  have been unable to keep a part of the  mine from being flooded.  The "North Star Mining company has  made application for incorporation. The  applicants are: John Milne Brownrigg,  .Edward Pease Davis and Chester Benjamin Matneill, all of the city of Vancouver, and the capital stock is fixed at  $100,000, iii $100 shares.  Everything is ready at the Van  Winkle to commence washing as soon  as the snow from the heights above  comes doyvn. Two monitors are in  position. The warm weather of the  past yveek yvill probably send enough  water1 to wash yvith.  A shipment of ore, consigned to the  Omaha aud Grant Smelter', yvas made on  Friday last by. the Dardanelles, Lucky.  -Boy. and Boulder. It yvas sent by yvay  of Bonner's Ferry, by E. J. Matthews,  who noyv represents Messrs. Braden  Brothers of Helena'in this district.���������  Kaslo Times.  Oyving to the great, rush of yvater  caused by the recent unusually hot  weather, proceedings at the Forty-Nine  claim have been delayed. It was found  that the rate to carry "off the waste yvater  was not large enough, and its size is  being increased. The yvork yvill probably  be finished and operations commenced  ~by "t heli rst of~J n ire:    ~ ^~"   Preparations are being made at the  Silver King Mine for the establishment  of the heavy machinery yvhich arrived  a few/weeks ago.

The same can also be said of the Thompson river, yvhich is very low at present  on acountof the.cold weather which has  prevailed during the past month.

China Creek.  China Creek, May 10.���������A dozen or  more protestors are at work on China  Creek, and many neyv claims have been  recorded. The snow has disappeared  except from the highest altitudes. The  ledge located by Messrs. Wilkins, Campbell & Co. during the winter shows an  immense body of ore. The. ledge is upwards of 250 "feet wide, and they have  been able to trace it for over a mile.  " Assays made upon this quartz in'Victoria and San Francisco give $35 and S25  in gold to the ton respectively, besides a  considerable quantity of silver. A substantial house is being erected about  thirteen miles up the creek from Alberni,  which is to be used as a restaurant and  bearding house.���������Colonist.  NEW   DENVER   NOTES.  From our oivu correspondent.  Wednt1-S_>at, May 23rd.  Since our last Mr. Goepel has paid us  a visit, during yvhich he inspected  the yvagon road as far as the Three  Forks and went to Silverton to inquire  into the necessity of a yvagon road to the  mines at that point. In a feyv clays time  a number of men are to start at work  grading and clearing ayvay mud slides  and mean yvhile Mr. Cameron yvith a  small squad is engaged raising the level  of such bridges as are in danger1 of being  washed out by the floods and Mr. Gilette  is attempting to clear out a timber  "jam."  Tenders for supply of lumber for the  bridges are called for May 21th.  Tyvo snoyvslides folloyved each other on  to the yvagon road down the " Mow itch "  gulch but did little harm.  The "Apex," an extension of the  Mountain Chief, has been purchased by  George Hughes of Alonzo Coplen. This  improves Hughes' property immensely  as he now gets a large area of tunnelling  ground.  Notyvithslanding the large exodus from  here to the court at Nelson, the town has  been quite lively during the last feyv  days. Several prospectors have arrived  from the. States, and three or four parties  have been fitting out for the hills.  One party of four has just gone to the  foot of the lake, yvhere they have secured, they say, some first rate land and  intend putting in vegetables and potatoes, for which they yvill find a very remunerative market here.  ... Marino, yvho is interested in the  California group, has, during the last  ten days, rbcen cutting a neyv trail to  those claims previous to putting in a  summers work there.  W. II. Smith and Frank Culver started  yesterday to yvork on the Wakefield  yvith tyvo other's. This claim, it yvill be  remembered, yvas bonded last fall to Mr.  Finch of Wallace, Idaho.  The rising of the creek here has caused  considerable inconvenience to the squatters and campers on the unsold portion  of the government, toyvnsite, as the  various temporary bridges are all impassable, "and boats are a necessity.  This morning George W. Hughes had  a narrow' escape from drowning. He  yvas walking towards Three Forks by  the yvagon road, when, at the Canyon,  the portion of the road he yvas walking  on slipped into the creek with him. Fortunately he yvas carrying his coat on his  arm and one ot his companions yvas able  to catch hold of it and pull him ashore.  The creek is most dangerous here, and  once in the stream a man would soon be  buffeted to death.  The north pier of the new bridge over  the Canyon yvas carried ayvay this morning.

Mr. George Johnstone of H. M. Customs  and family returned to Nelson on Tuesday  last after a protracted leave of absence.  The Rev. James Turner will conduct  service in the School House on Sunday,  May 27th at 11 a. m. and 7.HO p. in.  We have received the prospectus of  the Northyvest Interstate, Fair, yvhich is  to be opened at Tacoma on August loth,  and to "run on to November 1st. Henry  Buckly is the president and general  manager, and A. F.  Eastman secretary.  During the past yveek the weather has  been unusually warm, and in consequence the lake is rising very rapidly, at  the rate of nearly tyvo feet per diem.  Should the weather continue very high  yvater may be looked for.      "  As the result of an accident in Kaslo  on Thursday morning Mr. McAndrews  of the Ottawa House got his leg broken  above the knee. As the bone, had been  injured before it is liable to prove  serious. He has been taken to the  Sister's Hospital, Spokane.  The chess tournament is concluded  and R. B. Kerr yyill return to New Denver with renewed laurels. In the'third  round Kerr beat Akehurst and Jowett  beat H. Sproat. In the final Joyvett won  the first of the three games, but Kerr  overcame his opponent in the other tyvo.  John W. Haskins has retired from the  election contest in the North Riding of  the West Kcotenay, and his place is  taken by W. Broyvn of Revelstoke,"'yvho  announces himself an out and out op-  positioner. Mr.. Kellie who we believe  noyv supports the. government yvill find  Mr. Brown an antagonist difficult to  overthrow, as he is a popular old tinier.  On Sunday last as T. Kelly yvas looking  about for an easy yvay to swim-a horse  across the lake to Grohman Creek his  boat got caught in the rapids. As she  yvas carried near the further shore Mr.  Kelly jumped out and waded to the land  while the boat, was carried safely down  to the eddy below. A search party that  went out. about 11 p. m. found Kelly  comfortably sitting by the lire in one of  H. Selous' shacks.  Base ball clubs frequently break and  the big trout, in the lake frequently run  off yvith Hies, minnows, and tackle of all  sorts, arid anyone who wants any fishing tackle or sporting gear of any kiud,  and prospector's yvho cannot get along  yvithout c.impasses, magnets, etc., yvould  do yyell to write to Barnsley & Co. of  Government street, Victoria, yvhose advertisement appears in another column.  From personal experience yve can guarantee Mr. Barnsley's goods.  The little township of Midyvay is  gradually and quietly coming in t.o existence.. Its owners are not pushing it  but allowing genuine settlement to take  its course. A mill, saloon, hotel, blacksmith shop, assay office and post office  are already established, but the embryo city wants a store. The usual  incubus, protection, has prevented some  enterprising Americans coming" across  yvith their goods, and no one as yet on  this side seeme inclined to make the  venture.  The Ottowa correspondent of the Victoria Colonist al Ottayva telegraphs: In  the committee on, the tariff to-night Mr.  Mara said be wished to see the most  lilieral construction given to the defini-  nition on mining machinery, and proposed to add to the. tariff a list of articles  not made in" Canada yvhich prospector's  and capitalists yvould know could all be  brought in free. Hon. Mr. Foster suggested to Mr'. Mara to hand in a list to the  controller of customs, yvho yvould have  it printed and furnish copies to the collector's of customs. Mi-. Mara's timely  suggestion will be of great benefit to  miners in British Columbia.  Paul Savage, accused of and sent up  for trial' on the charge of stealing a  watch, yvas brought down to Nelson on  Monday last, for trial, but as no one appeared for the prosecution he yvas sent  back to Kaslo in the charge of Marshal  V. Adams. He handed his prisoner' to  A. R. Sherwood to betaken to the. Gaol,  and on returning some time after, was  rather' surprised to find that his "Dickey-  Bird" had fioyvn. It iV supposed that  Savage came back to Nelson on the excursion boat on Thursday night and got  ayvay on the Nelson <fc Fort Sheppard.  Quite a number of visitors arrived in  toy. u on Tuesday evening, so mauy in fact,  that the Phair, the Nelson House and the  Stanley House had no..enough rooms to  accommodate all the guests. Mr. D. C.  Corbin came iu on a special train over the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard, bringing yvith  him A. C. McLean and A. R. .Porter of  Spokane, and A. E. McPhillips of the firm  of McPhillips, Woottou & Barnard of Victoria,. Among other arrivals yvere Messrs.  N. D. Moore, of Duluth; John Keen, M. V.  Adams and A. B. Goldstein, of Kaslo; J. T.  Wilkinson, -the yveli known and cheerv  "World on the Wing" man. J. M. Greata,  Inspector of the Bank of Montreal and W.  y. Clotiston.  The special train over the Nelson &  Fort Sheppard line, yvhich brought in  Mr. Corbin aud party on Tuesday last,  had_a.narr_o.yv^e..cape._fr.o m__.se r:io.us_ac_ci-  dent. At the part of the line yvhere the  Salmon River touches the embankment,  the floods had apparently undermined  the bank. 'As the engine passed on to  the broken place, the engineer felt the  line give under him. Opening his throttle  valve, he rushed the train across, only  just in time. The passenger coach,  yvhich was hist, did not quite reach the  firm ground, but yvas luckily held by its  couplings, yvhich prevented it rolling  doyvn the bank into the swollen river below. It took four hours to build up the  track.sufficiently to proceed, at. yvhich  yvork Mr. Corbin himself assisted as energetically as any one. The washout delayed the ordinary rrain on Wednesday  for 21 hours, it reached Nelson on Thursday at 4 p. m.  At the first it seemed as if the tyvo  teams yvere pretty evenly matched. But  practice yvill tell. Nelson won by a score  of 17 to 8.  After the base ball game the horse  races took place, Boston being the horse  of t he day.  At 6 o'clock the return journey commenced, with a regular fullisade of blasts  from the beach.  The majority of the excursionists remained over for the dance, which, to  judge from the noise they made on their  return Friday morning, yvas "all right."  About 150 people attended the,excursion.

The steamship Nelson, yvhich  had been chartered for the occassion,  lert the city wharf at 8.15 and arrived at  Kaslo after a delightful trip iip the lake  at 12.30. A salute of five or six blasts on  the beach greeted her as she steamed up  to the wharf, where a large crowd had  assembled to welcome the visitors.

We were enabled last- yveek to give  the report of the Commission yvhich yve  received by special telegram'from our  correspondent in Victoiia. We now  give Mr. Van Home's evidence :  Mr. Van Home being sworn, and examined by the Commissioners, stated  that he yvas acquainted yvilh the nature  of the country.  Mr. Van Home stated that he had in  a conversation in Montreal told the  Attorney General that thePiovince was  resorting to a most expensive yvay of  securing railway?���������that the bonds on  which the interest only yvas guaranteed  to the extent of $25,0U0 a mile, would  not bring in. the money markets more  than 70 or 75 at most. He pointed out  also that a guarantee of principal-and  interest by the Province would enable  bonds to be sold nearly if not quite at  par. It seemed to him (Mr. Van Home)  that'the latter method of guaranteeing  interest and principal yvould have at the  end of twenty-five years the railway to'  show for its money, yvhile the other  plan yvould by that time leave nothing  to show. He had had the figures worked  out by an actuary, and Mr. Davie yvas  very much impressed by it. The case  was so clear that, it required no discussion. He had pointed out to Mr. Davie  that on the plan to guarantee the  interest on $25,000 a mile the company-  would not be able to realize enough  money to build the road.  Mr. Justice Burbidge���������There yvould be  some difficulty in floating the bonds?  Mr. Van Home���������The utmost difficulty, in my experience.  The Chief Justice���������Could that road  be built for less than $17,500 a mile ?  Mr. Van Home replied that tyvo of the  most trusted engineers of the C. P. R.,  Messrs. Stewart and Duchesnay, had  made a careful inspection of the country,  and from the bills of quantities they  gave, the character of the yvork, and his  (Mr. Van Home's) experience in similar  cases, for example the Columbia &  Kootenay and C. P. R., he yvas satisfied  that it yvould require $15,000 a mile to  build it under the most favorable circumstances, not providing for interest,  on the money during construction and  contingencies or omissions. Taking  these into account, he had told Mr. Davie  that not less than $17,500 could be  figured on as the cost that the C. P. R.,  cif they built the road themselves, yvould  have to figure on. Mr. Davie had asked  if the C. P. R. would build the road, but  he (Mr. Van Home) had declined to do  it for various reasons. One of these yvas  that the C. P. R. could not afford to  take the chances of making up the  difference betweeu the amount guaranteed and the cost. There yvas the chance  of putting more money into the road  than they could get out of it.  . Hon. Mr. Davie���������There yvas a chance  of the company incurring a deficiency if  they undertook to build the road for  $17,500.  Mr, Van Home���������A very good chance  for a deficiency. In regard to cost of  railways in this province, the Mission  branch exceeded that amount by $5,000  a mile; the cost of the Columbia and  Kootenay much exceeded $17,500. He  imagined from what he had heard of the  ^Nak-usp-'&-Slocan-t:hatMtsccoiistru.tioir  would be something like that of the  Columbia & Kootenay, though transport facilities yvould he bett.r in the  former case and material cheaper. It,  was quite possible that the road might  be built for $17,500, but he yvould prefer  not to contract at that.  Hon. Mr. Davie���������You told me if the  road was built at that it yvould be a  cheap road ?  Mr. Van Home���������Yes.  -Hon. Mr." Beaven   yvas  then asked by  the Chief Justice if he yvould   like to  question Mr. Van Horne.  Hon. Mr. Beaven declined.'  Mr. Jtrstice Burbidge inquirod  of Mr.  "Van  Home if there was anything  that  he knew of in the Premier's conduct in  connection yvith trying to get  the  road  built that would make it appear that he  had been working in the interests of the  company, rather   than    those   of   the  Province,  Mr. Van Horne���������Quite the contrary.  In fact there we're, he understood, some  of the-promoters ' of the road who: objected to the change of arrangement.  Mr. Justice, Burbidge���������There yvas nothing then in the transaction .to suggest  corrupt motives?  Mr. Van Horne���������'Nothing. On the  contrary, Mr. Davie.Jiad seemed anxious  to get as cheap a-i'oad as possible.  Mr.    Justice.    Burbidge���������There     yvas  nothing to suggest personal motives?  -     Mr.   Van  Horne���������Nothing  whatever."  In fact Mr. Davie had tried  to get the  C. P. R. to take.up the. yvork.  Mr. Beaven was asked if he wished to  cross-examine the witness but. declined  to do so^and said he wished-to., have a  chance for argument.  Mr. Justice Burbridge replied that the  Commission would be,glad to hear him  on any question of fact.  Hon. Mr. Beaven then proceeded to  say that the whole of the question as  treated had been based on a fallacy. He  proceed to repeat the arguments he had  used the other day in his statement  comparing the two arrangements in  regard, to the road.  Mr. Justice Burbidge���������That is a matter  of detail. Even if the bargain made by  the Government were a bad one that is  nothing for the Commission to deal with,  unless corruption were suggested.     .,:  Hon.

Mr. Justice Burbidge.did not see hoyv  it could concern the Commission whether  it was a good or a bad bargain. They  were sitting to find out if someone had  acted corruptly.

Hon Mr. Beaven again brought up his  contention that there yvas no necessity  to guarantee the Nakusp & Slocan for  $25,000 a mile in the first place.  Air-.

Mr. Davie held that-considerable  injustice might be done to the Gov.ern-  in'oi.t if the Commission did.not go into  the matter of the agreement and report  upon it as to yvhether it yvas advantageous or not for the Province.    -  The Chief Justice remarked that Mr.  Beaven had not produced a single wit-  . ness to contradict what had been syvorn  ! to by Mr. Van Horne, viz, that by the.  alternative plan the. Government had  changed an impracticable into a" practicable scheme.  In reply to Hon.

On Thursday last, Her Majesty The  Queen, reached her 75th birthday. As  the 2-l-th oi' May circled round thc yvorld,  it found everywhere happy people cele-  Iraing the day. No less loyal than  '- Britishers in other parts, the inhabitants  of Kootenay kept high holiday, and  many yvere the yvishes that the great  Sovereign yvho has ruled so long and so  well over our mighty empire, may for  many years be spared, to reign over us.  God save the Queen.  ALL CRY AND  NO WOOL.  Looked at in any reasonable light the  tactics of the opposition over the Nukusp  and Slocan Commission are diilicult to explain. From a business point ot* vieyv they  are simply a waste of time. From a political one they are an egregious blunder, and  from a manly one they are coyvardly. Their  course of action can only1 be compared to  that of a sulky and quarrelsome child, who  disappointed over something on which its  heart yvas set, finds fault with everything  else.  Just before the second reading of the  Act no opposition paper in the Province  hesitated to lay charges of corruption  against the government, and member after  member in the House, yvith less directness  but yvith'equal intention did the same. In  spite of the plaiucsfc declaration and most  convincing arguments of the ministry the  cry of corruption yvas kept up, but it is yvell  to remember noyv that no one, politician, or  editor, could, or dared to put his finger upon the rotten spot.   Hints, iuuendos, aud  To the credit of Mr. Beaven let it be said  that he did stand up and do his best to  pick holes in the actions of the government. Deserted by his comrades,- yvith  absolutely no case, alone he attempted to  make a party struggle of it. "We do not  admire his motives, but yve do admire his  pluck. But what is to be said of his friends  the rest of the opposition. There is a  French word yvhich fits them, canaille^  yvhich can only be interpreted as "curs."  wild ravings fleyv about in every direction,  i and the public itself was brought up to  that pitch at yvhich if anyone had really  known of any dishonest dealing and hiid  said so,.,he yvould have carried everything  before him.- But no one came forward because there yvas no dishonesty to drag out.  So acute, however, yvere the attacks made  upon it that the Government could not  rest under them. No notice whatever yvas  taken of their statements, although hither-  - to they have never beeu accused of direct  lying, so they determined that the matter  . should be investigated by tyvo men whose  integrity and impartiality could not be  gainsaid, aud before' whom anyone aud  everyone might have an opportunity of  having his say. There is no necessity to  describe the characters of the tyvo gentlemen yvho were chosen to carrry out the investigation. . Our oyvn Chief Justice is not  in the habit of mincing matters yvith evil  doers, and his colleague, though compara-  . tively    unkuoyvn    here,    has. established  ' his reputation in the east as an upright  judge. " In appointing two judges as commissioners, the government acted yvisely,  ' because, from their experience and training they ,are more able to deal with the  technicalities of evidence than any layman  could poasibiy be. In no way could the  public quarrel yvith the composition of the  tribunal, and after ali "the public yvas the  most interested party. If their ministers;  are dishonest, out they must go,'therefore'  although only spectators as it were it was  the public's interests" that were most at  stake.   So the commission was appointed  ' and announced its sittings, invited all and  - anyone who bad aoything to say upon the  matter to come and say it. People who  live in other parts of Canada, and in other  parts of the Empire, will hardly believe it.  ; After all that great cry which went abroad  and was reported in all parts of the world,  there was absolutely no wool.  LAW.  The County Court sittings have come and  gone, wiping off the accumulated disputes  of eight mouths. The inconvenience arising from this long delay iu tne sitting of  the court is of course obvious and demands  the attention of the Executive. There are  one or tyvo other little matters to which  we have recently alluded, such as a Land  Registry office, and as there is every prospect of our having a government supporter  as bur representative in parliament, it is  possible that yve may find our very reast n-  able wants promptly satisfied. It is  yvonderful how matters of this kind get  themselves settled yvhen the member for  the district votes with the government. In  the sittings just concluded, some 200 cases  have been adjusted in tyvo days. We have  every confidence in the care and trouble  taken in their investigation. But is it not  just possible that in a.court sitting late  into the night, with judge and counsel, who  after all are only flesh and blood like other  people, wearied out by the protracted  sitting, that cases may not receive that  very close attention which laymen believe  is their due? If the court can only sit  three times in two years, might it not sit a  little longer each time.  Of all the cases that have come before it,  feyv are ol any particular consequence to  the public except the folloyving, Ennis vs.  Startsman, Lovatt v. Burns & Mclnnes  Larsen v. .Nelson and Fort Sheppard Rail-  way,������and Hughes v. Bronson. The first of  these yvas adispute concerning an interest in  the "Archie" and "Dolly Vaiden"' mineral  claims, in yvhich a definite meaning to  clause 9 of the Mining Act of 1891 was'laid  doyvn. To a lay mind the meaning of the  ambigious part of the clause seems plain  enough. It reads: " No person or joint  stock ^ company shall be recognised as  having any right or interest * * * m  any mineral claim * * * * unless he  * ' * * * shall-have a free miners certificate unexpired." But la-vyers have always-held that its meauing is obscure-  Judge Spinks, however, held it to mean  that s'iich person might legally hold an interest in mining property by purchase  yvithout having a certificate, but yet he.  could not yvork it, nor yvould he have any  locus standi in a court.ol* layv if t.hp title  came in question, instancing the case of a  mau becoming possessed of a mineral  claim by yvill.  In Lovatt and others versus Burns  <fc Mclnness, and also in Larson and  others versus' the Nelson & Fort Sheppard Raihvay and others, the verdict  turned on the wording of a schedule to  the Mechanic's Lien Act 1891'. ���������- A note  in another column shows how this came  about, but it is a shame that people  should suffer and money be yvasted like  yvater because of the childish cat elessness  yvith which Acts of Parliament are  drayvn. hi this case search should be  made.until the individual responsible for  this error is found, and care should be  taken that he draws no more Acts of  Parliament. The affair briugs to oni-  mind a saying of Mr. Justice Drake's  "That, forms to Acts are traps.for the  uyvary."  Hughes v. Bronson and others involves  a point of some"interest to miners.  Bronson and" Leison are sub-contractors  for a portion of-the work oh the Nakusp  <fc Slocan Railyvay. "Requiring timber  for culverts theyproceeded to cut it- on  the plaintiff's mineral claim. This action  yvas brought in consequence. The court  held the plaintiff as a free miner, had  not an exclusive right to the timber on  his mineral claim, as there is another  statutory method of obtaining it, viz.  by Timber Lease. An action for trespass  yvith nominal costs would lie, but in this  case the judgment went for defendants.  it is absolutely correct. All matters relating to the capture of fish in British  Columbia are in the hands of the Dominion Government at Ottayva, yvhich  being2000 miles ayvay naturally knoyvs  all about them and hoyv to handle them.  British Columbia relinquished her fishing rights yvhen she sold her virtue for a  mess of pottage, in other yv u-ds'when  she gave up free trade and joined the  Dominion, in return for having the C.  P. R. constructed to her shores.  On March 3rd last the old Fishery  Regulations were abolished and by  Order in Council a neyv set substituted  in their place. The first clause of the  neyv regulations reads as follows :  Fishing by means of nets or any other fishing  apparatus yvhatevcr for any kind of fish without  licenses from the Minister of "Marine and Fish-  erics is prohibited in any yvater. of thc Province  of British Columbia.  What this precious clause yvas intended to mean it is impossible to say. What  it does mean is that every one, from the  boy at the end of the wharf yvith his old  rod, to the great canneries which scoop  out salmon by the ton all are breaking  the law, if they have not first got this  license from the minister.  But yve cannot help thinking that  some one yvho had something io do yvith  arranging these absurd regulation* is a  wag in his yvay, for the iSUi clause provides that every license holder shall at  the end of each fishing season make a  true return of all fish caught under such  license. Here'is an opportunity, lt is  almost yvorth yvhile taking out a license  to be able to send these fish stories to  Ottawa. ,  There is another point about this affair  that strikes^us. It is a direct attempt to  extract more money out of the British  Columbian pocket. Already, through  the customs, the province pays more in  proportion to her population than any  other province. And yvhat does she get  for it? Absurd "regulations" like these  to worry and bother her, and to pile up  neyv taxes on her already over-burdened  shoulders.  ��������� TO   THE *���������  Electors of flu Soptii lii  ���������or-  WEST KOOTENAY.

Tothe Honourable Edgar Deiudncy, Lieut cnant-G<wcr-  nor of the Province of British Columbia.:  We, thc undersigned Commissioners appointed  by the Commission of. the twentieth day of  April, IS9I, to inquire into certain matters therein mentioned, concerning.thc Nakusp arid Slocan  Railway Company, have the honour to "report  that the manner in which that inquiry1 has been  made, and tlie evidence taken therein will appear by the record of thc proceedings of the Commission, yvhich we have the honour to submit  herewith.    ''  It yvill be seen from the notes of evidence that,  though full notice was given of the lime and place  of sitting, and also,' in our opinion, a sullicient  intimation that tlie reasonable expenses of witnesses.^ yvould bo recouped lo them through thc  Commissioners, no one has thought fit to appear  in support of the accusations.  The only person from whom yve have received  any assistance in this direction has been llie Hon.  Robert Beaven, M..P. P., yvho, though not, responsible for making the charges, brought forward  .aPiiic_facts-_iPnn.yv|iioli."hc_suggeste_. thc.absentee-  accusers niiglit have relied.       - -a  These yvere, first: irregularity in acting upon  the Statute of 1893 before it had actually been  brought into force, which could only bo done by  an Order in Council.  Rut, this seems, though an irregularity, to be  quite inadequate to support the charge,of corruption agninsl the Minister. The Statute of 1893  was brought into operation by an Order in Council almost immediately afterwards. The whole  transaction has been confirmed and ratified hy the  Statute of 1S94, and the irregularity, so far from  demonstrating that 'the Minister'was then- llie  agent of thc Company, points distinctly in ihe  opposite direction, since it would have been the  first care and duty of such an agent to sec that  everything yvas in order.  And secondly: Mr. Heaven pointed out thai, in  tiieopinion of many, persons, tlie undertaking  which the Statute-of 1S91 impo-ed upon the  Government, in lieu of that under (lie Statute of  the former year, was so manifestly disadvantageous dial it "van lo bo inferred that it could only  hiivc been introduced and .supported through  corrupt motives: though it must be added, that  lie did not muke.such a charge.  it does,not follow, of course, that a bad bargain  must bo a corrupt bargain. An honest, "Minister,  witli nn motive orrlosireexcept, tosorve his Province, might make a mistake. Wc do not wish  to suggest for a" moment that- any such mistake  lias, oeciired in the matter into which -wo have  been inquiring. On the-.contrary. wc think that  under tlie evidence adduced, and the arguments  addressed to us, only one r-oneiusion is open to us,"  and that is that the arrangement, for ihe construction of the ��������� Nakusp and Slocan Railyvay,  which wad ratified by the'Ac: of IS!)I, is more advantageous tothe province than the arrangement  contemplated by thc Act "f. 1S!)3, and we have  had no difficulty in arriving -at that, conclusion.  Hut,however that may bo, on tlie issues more  directly submitted ;to" us by tlie Commission,  there is, w-c think, no room for doubt, and we find  as folloyvs, that is to say:���������  Firstly: That the Honourable the Premier of  the Province, in advising the guarantee mentioned in the said Commission', did not work for the  Company, but, worked for the Province:  Secondly:. That the statement made by the  Honourable Member-for .Nanaimo District, in his  place in rhe Legislative Assembly, that it. appeared that the Honourable the Leader of ihe f.'ovorn--  nicnt had been yvorking for thc Company and not  for the Province, is not, true :  Thirdly.:   That no corrupt motives of any kind  existed yvith or influenced Your Honour's Ministers in thc advice tendered by them to Your  Honour in relation to thc Nakusp and  Slocan,  Railyvay Company:  Fourthly: That no one of Your Honour's  Ministers has had, or has. any interest, directly  or indirectly, in -       '  ��������� (a.) The Nakusp and Slocan Raihvay Company,  or  (-.) Tn the Construction Company by yvhich  such raihvay is being built; or  (c.) In any contract by or with either of t belaid Companies, either in furnishing materials or  supplies, or in any way yvhatsoever.  All of whifdi is respectfully submitted.

C, SATURDAY, MAY. 26,   1894.  33I-METALLISM AND THE  POSITION  OF GREAT BRITAIN.  An international conference on bi-meta]-  liprn yvas opened in London on Wednesday.  The conference yvas attended by a number  of bi-metallists of distinction, and letters  ���������were sent by others who yvere unable to  be present. A cablegram expressing sympathy* yvith the conference yvas sent by several United States 'senators, among whom  Senators Sherman, Allison and Voorhees  were conspicuous. The rending of papers  was begun at once, and discussion upon  them followed. Perhaps the most interesting contribution to the discussion yvas from  Mr. Balfour, the leader of the House of  Commons under the. Salisbury-administration, who said that the commercial yvorld  was noyv face to face with a grave danger  which could only be averted by the rehabilitation of silver to its proper commercial  function. For this purpose, Mr. Balfour  insisted international action was absolutely  necessary. Mr. Balfour said that the possibility, the justice and expediency of a  double standard had been overwhelmingly  affirmed bv scientists and economists. He  did not pronounce upon the question  whether the closing of the Indian mints  was a wise step, but he said that he did not  doubt that it was the most striking attempt  that a civilized government had ever made  to solve a monetary difficulty that yvas directly due to monometallism, Mr. Balfour  further said that he saw signs of a change  in English opinion, and that the leading-  commercial men had abandoned their  former opposition to bi-mctall'sm.  Among the letters received at the confer ence was one from Mr. Henry "YV. Cannon,  ;��������� of Neyv York, in which he set forth in an  interesting way his vieyv of the situation as  regards the outlook for bimetallism. In the  first place, he said that the responsibility  for the solution of the silver problem rested  upon the people of Great Britain, and that  the other nations looked to the government  of that country to settle the status of silver  as a monev metal, and to. decide whether or  not the mints of the various nations should  again be opened to its coinage, or whether  the demonetization of the white metal  should be complete and continuous, lie  directed attention, hoyvever, to the fact  that while the exhaustive inquiries yvhich  -have been made by the various inter-  ternational conferences and monetary commissions yvhich have been held during the  last feyv years have been.,of great service in  increasing the knowledge of the people cf  the yvorld as to the uses of metallic money  and as to the relation of gold to silver, no  practical result as regards the use of gold  and silver as money upon a common international basis has been reached; that the  determination of Great Britain to continue  a gold monometallic nation has done much  to discourage those who believe that it is  for the best interests of mankind to use  both gold aud silver as full legal-tender  money at a common ratio, and that the  United States has been compelled to close  its mints to the coinage of silver aud to  adopt gold monometallism.  Mr. Cannon next directed attention to  the assertion made b> some that the United  States is particularly interested in the silver  question because it is a large producer of  silver, and wishes to provide a market for  the product. He said that it yvas true that  the mines of the United States are. capable  _of producing annually, from. 50,000,000 to  ~60~000,000 ounces of' silver, Dut that silver  mining with us is purely a private enterprise in yvhich the government has no  pecuniary interest, and has beeu carried  on as an important industry in only six of  the forty-four states comprising the Union  and in tliree territories. Taken as an ; industry, he added, it is insignificant when  compared with the other products of our  great country, our enormous agricultural,  manufacturing   and   commercial interests  . employing the great majority of our people,  who need an annually increasing amount  of money properly to transact their business and conduct their enterprises. In the  United.States, he further said, the senti-  . ment is almost universal that both gold and  silver should be used as legal-tender money  if a common ratio can be established by in-  . national agreement betyveen the principal  nations of the yvorld.  This brought him back to the question  as to the relation of Great Britain lo.the  question. In his opinion the interest of  Great Britain in the re-establishment of a  ��������� ratio between gold and silver is identical  with that of trie United States, only greater,  in a degree, for, he asked, if gold is going  to be the sole money of the civilized world,  and if silver is to be abandoned as a money  metal, what, will be the value of the immense stock in India and the. East and the  silver coins-now in circulation and held by  the great banks of Europe as a basis for  the redemption of outstanding notes, and  how can a stable rate of exchange be fixed  and maintained between gold and silver  under existing conditions? He contended  that the citizens of Great Britain have a  greater and more vital- interest in the  stabilitv of such exchange than any other  nation in the world by reason of its complex "and extended commercial relations,  and he assured the conference that if the  ���������government of Great Britain should suggest a practical plan looking to the use of  both gold and silver as money on some  ratio to be fixed bv international agreement  the,government of the United States would  co-operate and assist in every.possible wav  in carrving out such, a plan. .This view of  the matter puts llie question as to the possibility of an international bi-metallic  agreement in its proper light. The adaption  ��������� of such an agrement depends upon the cooperation of Great Britain, and in spite of  Mr Balfour's assurances of a change in English opinion, the evidencesof such a change  do not to the ordinary observer at least,  seem 'o lie n**on the snitace.���������������radstreeis.  _sB.u_5LlQ.
