In order to make room for development,  work stoping will, be discontinued at the  Silver King and about 10 more men willl  be discharged in a day or two, thus reducing the working stall" to about 15 men.  Great difficulty is experienced at the mine  to keep the pumps and other machinery at  work owing.to the intense frost. It is to  be hoped that when news arrives of the  meeting in London it will bring with it  instructions to put out a large quantity of  ore, but in the face of the continued decline in the price of silver this is scarcely  likely.  tainraent was the roughly enjoyed by everyone and Mr. and Mrs. Taylor deserve great  credit as well as others who assisted to  give thc children a plesanl evening regardless of trouble and expense.

The proprietors of the Noble Five have  let a contract for the haulage of GOO ton3 of  ore to Three Forks.  The concentrator just below the town is  expected to start up next month.  Ben. Finnell has sold an interest in  Thompson Group to Henry Stege.  The owners of the Goodenough mine  contemplate going to the States as soon as  the first shipment of their ore takes place.  During their abscence the mine w ill be  managed by William Lettrick.  t  Thos. Elliott1 unfortunately broke - his  leg after working only a few days at the  Idaho and is now under the care of Dr.  Brunei' at the Pacific Hotel.  During the week ending Friday 2_s.,  340 tons of ore were shipped out over the  Nakusp ahd Slocan Ry. They were from  the following mines: Slocan Star 220  tons, Noble Five 80, Ivauhoe 15, Rueocau  Captain Fitzstubbs, the Gold Commissioner, paid us a visit last week and ex-  f>ressed himself as well pleased with the  ocation of the*town and its suitability  for' the district. He visited the Le Roi  and War Eagle mines in company with  Mr. W. M. Newton and Mr. W. S. Jones  and looked into thc question of ' the  amount of water supply, with a view to  secure the iutcrest of the residents in the  town of Rossland, as well as those of the  mine owner's requiring to take water  from the creek. He left on -Saturday by  the new Northport road. . While here  he observed that the road which was  built last summer at a cost of $1,000 or  ___over,_ostensibly_for__the_0. -K..-miue, -is  , quite unused and quite useless. Itleaves  tne road about a mile below Rossland on  a low level and crosses the townsite  diagonally, cutting through lois and  blocks, avoiding the business par. of the  town and then rises to a great height  above  the  town,    falls   again   and  finally leaves oil" on the mountain  bide  leading to nowhere.   The O. K. mine  people say they do not need the road;  they do not ship anything but concentrates and these would ot" course come  along the usual route. ' Hardly a wheel  has turned on the  road all' tne season,  . but itmakes a pleasant level promenade,  for which it can be used  until required  for building.   The great fault in the construction  of this road and of the road  ��������� from the landing is that t hey creep along  for some distance on a. low ievel  instead  of rising at  once to get- their   grade,  which of course involves great irregularities and heavy collar work somewhere.  Mr. W; T. Jones, customs officer, made  two or three requests for-payment of  duties, together with a.fine equal to the  value of the goods, which were promptly  responded, to.  The Northport stage has ceased running,,on warning from the customs, and  D. JVIcKellar, the driver, yyill run to Trail  landing instead. It is threatened from  the American side that' the* Northport  route will be forced by the transfer of  freight from one team to another on  each side tbe boundary.  A further threat is that the route from  the Kettle River country via Marcus will  be closed and that report must be made  at Northport by persons wishing to enter the.United States. This, it. need  hardly be pointed out, is as impossible  as for persons corning into B. C. along  Sheep Creek to report at Waneta...  The last move in the bitter question as  to freighting is that the railroad rate  from Trail has been increased to $8.50  The Nanaimo correspondent of the  Colonist writes: Texada Island gold has  again become the subject of much discussion here. Several excellant specimens  have been exhibited the last day or two.  These show a considerable quantity of free  gold; but to experienced eves it looks a  trifle too much like the product of a "specimen mine" with a vein so small as to require almost solid metal to work. One  pariy, consisting of several men, has chartered a steamer and set out for' the island.  per ton, while that from .Northport is  $7. This gives an advantage of $1 per  ton in favour of Northport. Seven i  teams from Spokane have now conie in "  and there will be seventeen two-horse  teams hauling ore to Tijail,: taking an  average of some 50 tons per day.   The  LOCAL   NEWS.

Victoria, 17th Dec, 1894.���������Budget  Speech several columns in length, the  following, however, is worth reading:  "This then is certainly not the time for  us to feel depressed or to despair.    We  have a   country with   a   climate- well  adapted for industrious immigrants'; we  have plenty of land capable of growing  the finest fruits, root crops 6r grain,   in  the world.    We have .millions'of acres.of  magnificent   timber  and-ah   unlimited  supply of fish free to all.    Our sea fisheries have yet hardly been  touched.    We  have  enormous   undeveloped, minerals  equal to the most favored mineral countries.   I heed only to point to the "trade  of the province as it is today���������its exports  and imports���������to show  that there is a  vast.field   for industry,    energy,   and  capital,, that    the   wealth   of the province is' unlimited.     Our experts, last  year amounted to $7,843,000; .$3,521,543  being the product of the  mines', $3,541,-  505 from the fisheries*, 3__L1,G23 from   ihe  forest, and this in a year when the timber'   industry   was   greatly   depressed.  With such resources as I have named  why should we   fear  spending   a  few-  thousands to develop  them,   more   es-  pecially as it is so evident that expenditure   in  this   direction   increases  the  returns of revenue.   In addition to these  advantages which the province presents  to the industrious, we .offer to  our, settlers   complete   liberty   of  conscience,  thoroughly free and unsectariau education, perfect laws protecting poor and  rich alike, and absolute safely from  violence.

He emphasized tlie  necessity of having authoritative Jnfor:  ination as to our minerals at some cen?  ti'al place whore capitalists, and prospective miners can form an idea of what  this province can produce and thc localities, in which each variety of'minerals  may be found.  Mr. Eberts, Mr. Bryden, Dr. Walkem  and others pointed.out.the immense im:  poitance of the mines now actually.iii  operation and the undeveloped mineral  wealth known to exist on the Island of  Vancouver,' which fact the gentlemen  opposite seem to entirely overlook'in  suggesting as they do that the bureau  should be located in the interior of the  mainland instead of a position central to  the whole province.

Tuesday, 18th Dec���������Debate on Bud-  The j get resumed by Semlin, who naturally  attacked it, comparing Turner to Mark  Tapley in having come out strongly under adverse circumstances. He declared]  that if the elections had been differently  arranged something' else would have  happened, which is not improbable.  Everyone was unjustly taxed (many-  people will agree with this) and he feared  that the estimates of expenditure were  under-rated and those of income the  result of building castles in the air.. H.e  had a little fling at the ghosts of the B:  P. and the N. & S.

On the vote  of $16,200 for the Insane Asylum, Semlin blamed government for not having  found out irregularities before. Premier  explained that Grand Juries had frequently visited asylum and reported  everything in good order. Kennedy  mentioned ! hat he had recently visited  asylum and seen no evidence of mismanagement.  Committee rose at 5.30, having passed  during the afternoon the votes from No.  26 to 102, including these heads:  Administration of justice salaries $131,83'  Legislation    _9,!KM)  Public institutions maintenance    48,nOO  Hospital and charities    43,950  Administration   of   justice  other   than  salaries    (!2,700  Education  203,205  Transport    10,/) "0  Rent  48  Revenue services    10,000  Public works (in part���������$98,800)   After recess. Semlin appealed for larger  appropriations for West Yale and Hume  made similar application for West Kootenay (S.) pointing out large contributions  to revenue made by this district. Kellie  defended the appropriations for his riding  of West Kootenay North, agaiust the  attack made upon it the other day by the  member for Vancouver' (McPherson.) He  said that the north riding could be proved  fully equal in importance to the south, aud  if the latter has developed faster lor a time  it is simply because it hiis had the advantage of American capital. He pointed out  that not only has the south had liberal  expenditures in the past for waggon roads,  but it has hud the benefit, of the immense  expenditure on tho Nakusp and Slocan  road, which yvas built simply to open out  the mines in South Kootenay. He thought  it now the turn of the north riding, and  that if the government will deal as liberally with it during the next few years as  they have yvith the south in the past, the  result yvill be even. greater development  there.  In answer to* Mr. Semlin, Hon. Mr.  Davie explained the increase in tlie vote  asked for immigration purposes, consisting  of $5,000 for salaries and contingencies of  the Loudon office, and .$4,000 for in'siel-  laneous expenses. He stated thni Air.  Beeton, who for ��������� a ��������� great many j i.-;u-_ has  been the Agent-General of this province in  London, yvithout remuneration, has resigned the office, on account of old age  creeping upon him. It is a matter of the  utmost importance that British Columbia  should have a good representative there,  and it is not to be supposed that another  man such as Mr. Beeton can be secured  except upon the payment of a fair remiiu-  eration.

A well-informed writer in the Times,  December 2, says in reference to the failure  "of the Loudon market to respond to the  success of the government loan here, that  jt was thought "it yvould considerably  stimulate foreign buying," but it did not.  "The fact seems to be that, while -there, is  quite a yvild bull speculation rmiuiug on  the other side, it is almost wholly in gold  mining shares, the mines of Soiith Africa  . and Western Australia. Very soon they  will begin to call for American gold mining  properties. It is almost inevitable- The  gold fever is.on them, new food to feed it  will be called for. and it will be found in  Colorado Utah and other parts oE" pur  mining regions where the development of  gold fields is progressing���������progressing also  with such effect that the output of gold iu  Colorado has been doubled.

INADIANv. UNITED STATES' CAPI-  \L AND ENTERPRISE IN WEST  KOOTENA Y.  h-ing in mind that the financial de-  lon of ihe last tyvo or three years  iot had that severity in Canada  ������i has been felt so acutely in the  ted States il appears odd at the first  lice, .that the amount of Canadian  lea. in this district should be so  .atly disproportionate to that con-  ibuted by people from the other- side.  Vbour i'olknvs capital, but the pro-  ilion of Canadians to Americans in  "est Kootenay is greater than the  relative proportions of the respective  capital employed.  Many  causes operate  to account for-,  then, conditions; some of them favourable to the Canadian community; others  Americans.   Canadian capital is for  most   part    invested   in    tolerably  |ble securities, paying a safe  average,  [moderate income,   folloyving  in this  the   traditions   of   the  mother  ���������cvyr -\\liile   "lieu-  people   have -vm-y  rally  made, homes for themselves  lid have given up  the  nomadic  habits  rich still characterize Western Americans and especially miners.    Our proximity   to  the  mining   districts   of   the  United States also favours the influx of  both men and money, yvhile their greater  tperience in mining matters and their  itional  disposition   as   "adventurers,"  ,'e them a confidence in  dealing  yvith  fimng projects to'-which yve have to become educated.   And so it, happens that  they become competitors yvith us in our  I;   oyvn country and are supported in that  Iners  competition by their friends, yvho are  enabling them to reap their rich harvests by providing means of transport  when our.oyvn resources under that head  fall short of the requirements.  Our policy is not an exclusive one; that  has" been settled for us and by us long  igo;    yve   welcome'- men    and   capital  wheneesoever they come, and  all  have  u right  to equal  treatment.   True patriotism in'the interests of the  countiy  excludes petty jealousies  betyveen  rival  enterprises and demands  that- the fairest 'treatment   should   be   accorded to  those yvho yvill best ser ve the business ol*  (the   district.     If   these   happen   to   be  IAin?ricans we say.wr yvould prefer they  [yvere   Canadians,   but   whosoever they  [may-be they deserve the reyyard of their  Lsuccess.   ..We   are ayvare that  a large  limount   of   money   from  Victoria has  ]been invested in West Kootenay, but yve  (deeply  regret to  think that,   as  far as  [any  benefit has resulted either to  the  lvestors or to the district,   the money  (might as well have been  thrown ayvay.  [Capital judiciously applied  in the  nur-  fture of neyv industries and on a yvell  considered   business basis, with careful  land honest management never fails to  'make   a   return;   but    capital   wasted,  either in  the attempt to'give  an  arti-  Ificial stimulus to a real estate venture or  ���������in a futile endeavour to force trade in a  I direction yvhich  it yvould not naturally  follow, is a positive injury to the country.  "Still more mischevious is the failure of  ���������enterprises undertaken either ahead or  in ignorance of   the   probable  requirements of the country.   These are nearly  always a losing game and involve  much  hard feeling on the part   of  investors  who have got sick of the yvhole business.  Our friends at the coast have suffered  much from these causes and from unlucky .and worthless mines; and so little  EUROPE.  There is a cartoon in a recent  number  ot Punch which   exactly  explains the  neyv   aspect of affairs  in   Europe.     It-  represents the British Lion and the Russian Bear yvalking along together in the  best of good fellowship, yvith the legend  ���������'Why didn't I knoyv you before?"   The  visit of the Prince of Wales to Russia was evidently intended as something  more than a mark of respeco to the late  .Czatj, and great things have come of it.  It will be remembered that the  Prince  is the uncle (by marriage) of the present  Czar and the real uncle of the Czarina  who is the child of Tub Queen's second  daughter, the late Princess Alice.   The  Czar is niu.h attached to his uncle, who  has  great   inlhience  yvith his   nepheyv.  Only a yveek or two ago they both stood  on the same rank as heirs  to  the tyvo  greatest   thrones on..earth,  and  if the  younger man has through a sad fatality  succeeded the first to  his great inheritance, he has not lost his respect for the  man yvho as yet has only his foot on the  lowest step of a   throne that   is even  mightier than that on  yvhich  the Czar  of all the Russias has taken his seat.  The "Pi-iNci*  therefore comes  back to  England having successfully carried out  a diplomatic  mission and established a  friendship between Russia and England.  England yvas never a party to the Triple-  Alliance   by   yvhich   Germany, Austria  and Italy held the balance of poyver, but  she was friendly toyvards it and in  noyv  embracing one of the parties in  opposition to whom the Alliance yvas  made  she only makes a. further safeguard for  the peace of Europe.    But it  is  not  improbable  that Fra-jce  may  have  some  nasty things to say about  it.    As long  as there yvas no tie betyveen Russia and  England she  had   little   hesitation    in  treading on the toes of  "perfidious Albion," feeling herself safe  by  reason  of  her flirtation yvith Russia.    But that  is  changed noyv and France  yvill have to  behave herself and restrain  the  bumptiousness of her sta esmen.  ���������Tre-Prince,���������hoyvever, -dicU-not-rel-y-  entirely on his personal popularity with  the new Czar to bring about the above  much desired object.    It is yvell known  that the Rothschilds have.lately looked yvith coldness upon Russian loans, in  consequence   of   the   harsh   treatment  yvhich the Jews in Russia have received  at the-hands of the late Czar.     Now  Lord Rosebery,  the Premier of England, is at once; the son-in-law of the  house oI'-Rotiisi'IIILD and-' an  intimate  friend and acquaintance'of the Prince,  whose daughter rumour assigns  to him  as his second \vil'e._ It is not  surprising  therefore" to   hear   that^ oyving   to  the  Prince's good  offices Russia, has  been  enabled at last to negotiate a  loan with  tho great European bankers.    The Neyv.  Year   could   scarcely  open  "more   auspiciously and it is to,be hoped that this  general friendship yvill lead to the.lessen-  ing  of   the  enormous standing armies  that rioyv; exist and are at once a ruin to  the countries-that have to support them  and a menace to the peace of the  yvorld.  It appears to us that even in a mining  country it is not necessary for the editor  of a paper to be a practical miner. It is  essential to begin yvith that an editor  should have the knack of writing fluent  English, yvhich is as a rule not among  the attributes of practical miners. An  editor should also have at least a superficial knowledge of a very yvide circle  of subjects, and above all should know,  when he is ab fault himself, exactly  yvhere to put his hand upon the information he requires. The comments he  lays before his readers are thus at any  rate the bestobtainahle. Thatis thecourse  yve pursue, and yve never make an im  portant statement without being in a  position to back it with proof.

No one must say a yvord  in praise of any part of this country ex  cept themselves, and if such a yvord is  said they both begin to yvork that hind  leg until, if it yvas only strong enough,  yvhich fortunately it is'nt, they would  indeed kick the bottom out of everything.  :������____@:  TTJ_R_I_T_E1_R  It is the-custom among journals all  over the yvorld, hoyvever. bitterly opposed in politics they may be, to make personal announcements about each others  affairs yvith courtesy.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.  Rumour has it that a prominent provincial statesman tired of the troublous senate  will seek that repose and secure emolument afforded by tbe highest seat on the  Bench. His place in the councils of B. C..  will be occupied by .1 younger man comparatively new to political life," but yvhose  fame, if propelled only by his oyvn lungs,  will speedily spread far and near.���������We give looked  this rumour as a rumour only and leave it  to our readers-to guess the personality of  A neiv treaty has been made betyveen  Japan and the United States, by. yvhich  the former is placed on the same footing  as any civilised European poyver. One  of the objections to this treaty naturally  was that it yvould open the United  States to herds of lapanese labourers.  Japan hoyvever, anxious to do everything she can to establish herself among  the family of nations has passed a decree  forbiddinghei-subjects^to-eniigrate-to  countries where they are not yvauted.  She-then proceeds to deal Uncle Sain a  well merited diplomatic backhander by  inviting all Americans to come to Japan  and do yvhat they cau. Japan is only a  little couutry about as large as England  and densely populated. The Empire of  the Mikado yvould only be recognised as  a fair sized ranch in Texas. There is  food foi much thought in this little passage of diplomacy.  - We are unreservedly glad to hear  that Mr. Beeton has resigned the Agent-  Generalship'of British Columbia in London. ., lb is a move that lias often been  advocated in these columns. But the  resignation throyvs a great resp.orisibility  on the governmi-'rit, viz. that of appointing a suitable man to take the position.  'Lhe "worst of it is that the sum voted for  the expenses of the London olTice($y,f.!;.'))'  is totally inadequate i'or the purpose.  We notice the salaries of other Agents-  General are as follows (turning, pounds  into dollars atone to five): Neyv South  "Wales, -.O.QC-and Secretary $3,320:-Victoria,' $12,500; Queensland, $7,500 and  Secretary $-l-,C.O; South Australia, $7,r_.>  and-assistant $!.,750; West. Australia,  $7,500. After these figures $r>VAD for  salary, rent and all other expenses looks  small and it is'hard to see bow a man  can be found yvho yvill take care that  British Columbia is properly advertised  for the money.  ment in Italy and that the investigation  into its affairs resulted in the imprison  rnent of some of its directors and officials. Correspondence is now coming to  light which implicated many persons of  high standing and more than hints that  Signor Crispi, Prime Minister of Italy  yvas not above dipping his fingers into the  banks money bags. These revelations are  of so serious a nature as to belikely to prevent the renewal of the Triple Alliance  when ils period shall expire.  It is not unlikely that a coolness will  arise between Mr. John Burns the English  labour leader aud the entire United States.  It has been habitual in the .latter country  to point the finger of scorn at Great Britain  on account of the vice aud poverty of! parts  of her cities. .Men of the Burns stump-  stamp-yve mean, have been idolized by  tliese same Americans because they profess to be trying to alleviate all this dreadful misery. But when John Burns visits  New York and Chicago and says "why you  are just a_ bad yourselves," they draw  themselves up aud .murmur something  about his being a guest as if a guest -must  not mention what he sees. Mr. Purity  Stead hit them a good slap iu the face and  tliey apparently do not yvant another. Tlie  incident reminds us of the nursery  rhyme:  Tlicro was a young lady of Wilts  Who went up to Scotland on stilts,  When they said  "It  is  shocking  to show so  much stocking."

THE COMING FIGHT FOR  SILVER.  Should the adminstration scheme of currency, reform pass the house, it will   be  vigorously resisted by a stroug combin-  ation'of'!democratic senators.   This'combination has already agreed upon the.outlines of a counter measure,  to be framed  on the directly opposing principle, namely,  government issuance and control  of' till  money of the people, and the free coinage  of gold and silver.   Their plan provides  for "the issuance by the United States of  all the money necessary for the people;  the retirement of the paper money of all  kinds how issued by the government,  and  the substitution  therefor of a single paper  issue, to be denominated United   States  notes; no ncte of.this character  below the  denomination of $5 to be issued; the retirement of all national batik note circulation;  the national banks to  be continued, yvith  this exception, as at present, and under, as  at present, government control and supervision; and the free coinage of gold aud  silver alike at the mints of the   "Dented  "States."  It is evident that the hard fighting will  be done in the senate. It is, therefore, of  the utmost importance that the friends of  silver in this state strive to secure the  election to the senate of a republican who  meets the requirements; of the Spokane  platform���������a republican whose heart is in  the fight for silver, yvhose brain has mastered the subjeet. To send there an unyvilling  convert, a man yvhose tongue stammers  when he makes a weak and insincere  declaration for silver, and yvhose heart is  against the cause and whose mind is trained to fight silver, yvould be a most flagrant  desertion of principle.���������Spokesman Review.  China's refusal to permit foreign guards to  enter Pekiu, the various diplomats in that  city are combining for local defence, should  occasion arise.  London. Dec. 20.���������Important dispatches  have  been   received   here   to-night   from  Tokyo, indicating clearly  that  practically  the war between China aud Japan has ended.   "Whatever instructions have been conveyed to the commanders of the respective  military and naval forces from the governing powers of the two empires is not told  in the advices,   but assurances are given  in quarters knoyvn to be thoroughly cognizant of deplomatic affairs that the Emperor  of China has been prevailed upon  to have  commissioners   sent 'to   Japan,   aud that  these envoys have such power of concession  as yvill yvithout doubt enable them to bring  about   immediate and   thorough end   of  hostilities.   The details of their authority  are not given, but the presumption is not  ignored  in  diplomatic quarters  that   the  concessions asked by the Japanese government have met yvith tbe acquiescence of  the reigning powers of China.  More recent news still tells of fighting  in the neighbourhood of New Chang in  which as usual the Japanese' armies yvere  victorious though it is stated that the  Chinese made a gallant defence. New  Chang is at the N. E. extremity of the gulf  of Pe-chi-h.  Intsriiational Coiiiisi Co.  t'lii'KH'j- l:io<-!., Nelson, IS. ������;.

English smelters have' been enabled to  supply themselves with-4,500 tons of Montana Matte at 8s. 3d. per unit delivered at  their works, while 1,000 tons have been  taken for American account at the equivalent of this price, .This Mattee was originally purchased by the French Syndicate at  a very high price, and has been stored iu  New York for-'a period of six'years; '  An'agreeement -has been concluded between the Anaconda and Calumet and Hecla  Companies, under 'iihe terms of yvhich the  former company undertake to reduce their  production to the level of the latter company���������gay to. about 5,500,000 lbs. per  month." As in the month of October the  Anaconda Company produced 9,300,000  lbs., this reduction represents about 1,500  tons per month", and after awhile should  materially affect supplies., The production  of the other three leading Montana companies in October was 6,100,000 lbs., aud  ---that-of-the-other���������leading -Lake -Superior-  company���������the- Tamarack���������900,000 lbs.  these figures about representing the extent  of their present capacity.
