At present it looks as if the end of the  line would be close to the Centre Star  Cabin on the bench about 50 feet above  the Rossland townsite. Work will be  commenced as early as possible as the  charter, expires 12th April next. This  company is seeking at the present session  of the legislature to take power to provide a telegraph for the convenience of  the public, to erect aiid operate boats,  wharves, &c, and to build their line as  a narrow guage road.  The Nickel Plate, which is one of the  richest in camp, has also been acquired  by B. C. Kingsbury for Mr. Haney and  partner and there has been greatactivity  in bonding all the minor claims which  adjoin this townsite in view of the increased value of real estate.  Mr. I. Newton Campbell has bought  from George Dozois a three-quarter  interest in tlie Northern Belle, which is  also a very likely looking claim, averaging some $18 in gold.

A list of some forty names  has been sent in to Mr. Justice Walkem.  We have received official notice that  a post office will be established here at  once, and as the lllecillewaet will now  make daily runs to Waneta we will be  able to get a reply from Nelson in a week  instead of a fortnight as heretofore.  Messrs. Cabana and St. Onge have  bonded the Monte Christo aud Enterprise to Mr. Walters of Hnckleberry  Mountain fame.  "Rossland, trail creek.  (From our  own  correspondent.)  It is ancient history now that the War  Eagle group of claims, consisting pf the  War Eagle, Iron Mask and Virginia,  have changed hands and are now in  possession of Messrs. Patsy Clark, Austin Corbin, J. C. Wakefield, B. C. Kingsbury, E. J. Roberts, J. A. Finch and the  Campbell Bros. The price paid was  $23,000 and $8,500 has been spent in development.  The upraise in the new tunnel has  struck daylight in, the shaft sunk to  meet it. All the workings are in ore  and mining on a large scale is provided  for. The present output will be only 50  tons a day,'which can be extended to  100 and 200 tons as.soon as the freighting  of such a quantity can be provided for.  Therein is the difficulty, for while the  __winter_.time-is-the-season--_vvhen^freight--  ing along easy show roads" reduces the  cost to a minimum, it is just then that  the C. & K. Steam Navigation Company  take off their large boats and play at  doing business with a toy steamer of.the  enormous carrying power of 35 tons! It  has lately been very confidently pVt forward by those interested in the new road  to Northport that all the ore from this  camp must go out by that route because  of the reduced rate for which it could be  carried, but experience shows that tlie  reverse is the case and that the route  via Trail-landing holds it, own to the  amount of 50 cents per ton saving. Tlie  United-.States Smelters all accept delivery f. o. b., either at Trail or at North-  port, and it is much to be desired that  this traffic should remain on the British  side and that the C. & K. Company  should wake, to the fact- that they arc  missing business. It would be unfair to  the American .capitalists who have invested here and to the interests of the  district and province to .prevent- the  shipment over the Northport road of the  surplus output from the mines which  the C. & K. are unable or unwilling to  handle, while the bona fides of the mine  owners is proved by their readiness "to  use the Trail route to its fullest capacity  and only to resort to the North port road  route, and suffer a loss of 50 cts. per ton;  for the balance of their output which  must necessarily go out some other way.  This last named road has not, however,  yet been opened for traffic by the assent  of the customs officers, but it is not  probable,,.hey will obstruct business by  refusing to sanction export along that  route and to make the necessary promises for its proper supervision.  Of course the time will soon arrive  when a railroad will disestablish arid  supersede the road traffic. ������������������ The Red  Mountain Railroad, for which a charter  was obtained by Messrs.' C. T. Dupont,  F. B. Pembertou and D. C. Corbin in  1893, will connect at the international  boundary with a line for Northport and  will circulate round the bases of the  mountains in this camp, on which the  largest mines are situated. Messrs. E.  J. Roberts, J. Hislop and Tabor, the engineer and surveyors of the Spokane  Falls and Nortlisrn Co., are here now  with a strong party taking levels for the  terminal points virith regard- to the  height of the summit of the pass lying  .    MEW DENVER.  f From our own correspondent.)  Some weeks ago we mentioned that R.  T. Lowery would move his newspaper plant  from Nakusp.here.. Soihe delay has occurred, but he now expects to issue his first  number here next week.  V. 0. Rackliff, one of the owners of the  Kalispell, was in town for a couple of days  on his way to Montana. He reports the  mine as looking in first rate condition aud  about seven tons of high grade ore, .assaying ab.ait 240 ozs. to the ton, sacked and  ready for shipment. The owners, who are  the locators, intend to work the mine themselves, and since the date of its location in  June have done considerable work in  building trails,- cabins,, orehouses aud a  stable, besides the work done on the ledge  itself. The Kalispell is one of the most  accessible mines in the whole district, being but half a mile from the lake, though  by trail about a mile, and ouly about 300  feet above the level of the lake.  The sleigh road camp has been broken  up as the road is now completed to the  Forks.  Harry Sberan has discovered a promising  looking ledge on the lake shore a quarter  of a mile south of Carpenter Creek, this  ground had already���������been located three  times, but the former owners had neglected  to do the necessary assessment work. It  was originally discovered* by Eli Carpenter in the toll of 1891, when he found  some of the richest float discovered in the  camp.  fhe offer of an English syndicate to give  $15,000,000 for this mine has been,  refused.  A vein of ore hits been struck'in the  Homestake mine on Adams Lake. Its  width and general characteristics are as  yet hardly known as a drive of seven  feet failed to pierce it. Men were at  once put on to endeavour to find its  dimensions. The tunnel, at the end of  which the ore was struck was in 170 feet.  Returned miuers from the Western Australia gold fields say Coojgardie, which is  400 miles east of Perth, is reached by mule  teams or camels. It contains 6000 people.  The water used for drinking and .cooking  purposes is distilled salt-water from salt  wells, and is sold for twenty-five cents a  gallon. Flour sells for $7.50 a bag, or ������15  per 100 pounds. Canned;'meat ia retailed  for 65 cents a pound. The surrounding  desert is rich in gold, but without water to  wash it out of the sand men are w< rking at a  great disadvantage. All that a man can do  is to pick small pieces of-gold out of the  earth. Hai occasionally finds pieces, of gold  the size of a pea, and once in a while small  nuggets of greater size. 'It is hard work  and does uot pay. A California dry washer  would be a Godsend to many a poor fellow  there.  Letters in Eastern papeis declare that  "there is a great golu excitement in the  Argentine Republic, and thousands of  prospectors are rushiog into the Chubut  Territory, where, in the opinion of an expert California!! miner who has explored  its mountains and valleys, are the richest  gold veins iu the world, aud more of the  yellow metal in sight than the capital and  deposits of the Bank of England could pay  for. The discoveries are in the foothills of  the Andes, near the source of the Rio Ne-  gro."  The Podrman mine is said to have the  finest all-round plant in the Coeur d'Alenes.  It employs about 200 men in all, and the  concentrator handles an average of 350  tons every 24 hours. A shaft has been  sunk 900 feet. It has great electric pumps  on the 600-foot level, und a large compressor, for working the,air drill. About  400 electrical horse power has been generated from1 water.

Banibury came back to Nelson  after a long trip, having travelled  through from Hope by the Hope Summit, Siinilkameen, Okanagan, Kettle  River and, Trail Creek and Waneta.  The journey was undertaken partly  with a view of getting to know the  country and partly, to prospect. Of  course the latter could only be superficially carried out and Mr. Banibury  brings back no bonanza iri his pocket.  He reports on the Simalkameen, or  rather on its upper branches, of which  the Tulameen is one, that the Chinese  are working and platinum is reported to  be plentiful.

Diptheria is prevalent in the Okanagan  country arid several deaths are reported.  At Vancouver a tax sale of real estate  by auction has been going on for a week  or more.  Richmond municipality can get no bidders at her tax sale and she will abandon  the attempt.  A pheasant flying across the Esquimalt  road, Victoria, came in contact with a  telephone wire. The bird dropped dead,  the broken wire made connection with the'  tramway trolley wire, and. the result was  that several coils at the central switchboard and some eight or nine telephones  were burned put.  It is said that a number of the lots sold  at Vancouver for taxes aud which fetched  only a few dollars, are the property of men  who are temporarily absent in England or  Australia arid, who have no intention whatever of letting their property go. They  have not, of course, had an opportunity of  seeing the notice of sale. ,  The Royal City planing mills are running  again three-quarter ;.ime - wi th ne w--han ds:  When the men struck they went to the  Hastings mill, owned by the same company, and asked the men to quit work  there.

Let's go back*,"  and 100 men returned to work.  Constable Anderson recently had an unpleasant experience at Comox. He and  another constable procured a search warrant and went to look over a sloop in the  harbor suspected of having stolen goods.  Anderson went on board, leaving his companion in a canoe alongside. Going below  he found the stolen goods as described, and  _took:_the_manJn_charge���������Going_to_the-side-  he hailed the canoe; when by a sudden  move the prisoner tipped Anderson into  the water and cut the anchor rope. The  sail was hoisted, and while Anderson was  being hauled out the vessel sped away out  of sight. .At last accounts the constable is  on a fair load to recovery.  and the men threw  it to extinguish it.  took place   at   once  killed outright and   a  score  ot peop  more or less seriously wounded.

The Montreal jury which has been investigating the fall of the street railway  bridge, by which three men lost their  lives, brought in a verdict. They, find  that Architect E. Hopkins, Engineer  Gravelle, of the Dominion Bridge Company, and Foreman McLaughlin, of the  same company, through their negligence,  responsible for the accident and the  deaths of the men. The three people  named will appear before the police  magistrate and be formally committed  for trial before the Court of Queen's  bench in January.  A copy of the report of Lord Jersey  to the British government.on the intercolonial conference at Ottawa is in possession of the government. A perusal  of it shows that no actual encouragement is given to any of the schemes propounded by the conference. The trade  resolution which called for ^liberty to  make preferential trade arrangements  among the colonies themselves in case  of the impractibility of preferential  treatment ot colonial products by Great  Britain is treated gingerly by Lord  Jersey, who declares the latter proposition ".inadrnissable" and one which the.  conference itself did not believe, would  be agreed to. In fact the resolution  itself yvas opposed by two of the colonies  represented. To those who have followed the question Lord Jersey's reports  consigns both the fast "service and the  Pacific cable to a distant and uncertain  future.  The stock of the Hall Mines Ltd., is  quoted at $3.75. There is a general meeting of this company in L������������doti on the  19th, and the report of the Board to be  made thereat is eagerly expected.  The prospects are that, the . recent  meeting of the. Qnesnelle Quartz Mining  Co., will lead to the working of the mine  on a large scale.- .There were about 250,  C. J shares represented at the meeting,  and the proposal, which was favorably  received, is to give a syndicate a little  more than a half interest in the Hixon  creek mine on condition that $100,COO  are spent in the property. The intention  is to work the ore oy the cyanide process,  tests having demonstrated that 95 percent of the gold can be saved by that  method. It is expected that arrangements will be concluded the coming winter and that the new company will be  organized and ready to begin operations  next summer.���������-World.  Owing to rich gold finds the town of  Leadville, in Colorado, is again alive.  People are pouring in by every train and  a return of the prosperity of ;80's is expected. Among the numerous new finds  is a ledge 20 feet wide of marvellous.iich-  ness, which has been uncovered in the  once deserted Ibex mine.   It is said that  Lendrum is taking a flying trip  East.

A mysterious murder has' been committed in Kensington, a western suburb  of London. The body of a comely woman oii'-tho unfortunate class, about. 30  years of age, was found iu a frequented  thoroughfare,,Holland Villas road, Kensington, with her throat cut from ear  to ear. Some oi" the London newspapers  claimed that this murder seemed to be a  crime of the class committed by ''Jack  the Ripper." lt is announced.today that  a young man named Reginald Saunder-  son, son of Mr. Llewellyn Saunderson,"  a prominent gentleman of the county of  Dublin, has been arrested charged with  the crime.

The improvement of. ways and communications in this new country is a matter of  vital importance aud we. cordially endorse  the recommendations which must be pressed  upon the government by our representa  tives with that object. The extent to which  government aid should be sought should  be measured by the strictly utilitarian  maxim of "the greatest good to the greatest  number." We have no sympathy with any  bock handed schemes for the benefit of a  favored few. whether these be the fortunate  townsite proprietors in a favored locality  or the close corporation of a railroad seeking unusual preferenoes. But when���������as  in the cases of the roads from New Deuver  to Three Forks, and from Kusslaud at the  Trail Greek mines to. North port���������private'  enterprise has opened up the country by  tbe building' of good roads which are of  undoubted general value to the jpulbic, we  think -that such efforts should be recog-  aiized %��������� substantial ;asststance' either -id  the way of funds ia aid -������r by the taking  ���������over of the roads by the .'government for  Tepaire aud maintenance and for their  'exten-i-ioh wherever possible into such adjoining neighborhoods;fiS_nay deserve development on acoountieitherdf their numeral weuHth or of'their* facilities for farming  purposes. The "original sin" of self seeking mterest'which miiy have prompted the  project,' is atoned 'for by i_fcs- widespread  ���������advantages.  In the case of New Denver the government ihas in some imecsureiassisted the .'new  road, but the other new -road from the  TraiKCreek micos westward and southward  -:remaiDS--under-_'tbe-"Coiai^iaddw-bf-iri6hr  recognition, because, -we -understand, the  Dominion Customs .authorities are reluc-  rtant to establish a iPort of'JEntry. upon it,  .and argue that all "iaiports .must cona'o . in  try, is deserviug of every encouragement.  Without begging for a cenl. of government  money or an acre of government land Mr.  Corbin and his associates iu Victoria are actively'laying oiit a road which will run  close up to the Trail aud Sheep Creek  miiies and take the ore out of tlie biun.  They are alive to the fact that the camp  will yield 200 tous a day, and they are well  entitled to the traffic which they are the  first to handle. '  When Mr, Corbin first ran his narrow  guage from Mission to Wiirdnor, ia the  Ccfiiir d'r Alenes, Idaho, a baud of drunkeii  and.infuriated teamsters got together, nnd  torenp the line in revenge for their disestablished, occupation. Notliiag of the  kind will happen here. This is a free country ahd the teamsters whose living as such  will be token away on the advent of the  railroad, will require no protection, but  will promptly take up new lines of work.  There are, also, of course the heathen  and the Mohammedan sections. The  population as ii-whple is estimated to be  from 300,000 to 500;000.- ' Ih'1890 Uganda  wns lecognized by Germany ���������* as being  under ihe sphere of British influence.

Its full title, designates its scope and usefulness. It is  "An Act for the promotion of the mining industry by the establishment of a  government Bureau of Mines." If properly and intelligently administered a  Bureau of Mines may hasten very  materially the (lays of prosperity to  which we are' all looking forward.  British Columbia suffers more than  enough from having a gentleman as  Agent-General who appears tb. earn his  salary, which is nothing a year. Other  parts of the British 'Dominions, send  their best and smartest men to London  to push their'interests and thus at every  opportunity the riches of West Australia, South Africa and other mining  regions'are duly proclaimed. But nobody ever hears of Mr. Beeton, the  A. G. for British Columbia,: or ,the province he represents. It will be the d'iity  of a Bureau of Mines to collect and  spread abroad reliable information as to  ���������our mines and thus put us partly, on a  ���������footing with our cousins.  The bill provides for the establishment of a --central' office for information  and instruction concerning-the mining;  industries" of B. C. It is to be under thej  control of the Minister of Mines and1  there, is a clanse' providing .for"'the' ap-.  pointment of a Deputy Minister to have  special charge of the Bureau. .We do  not like the title "deputy-minister," but  if we get-a good man to fill the place the  name'- does not matter. -"' Mine owner's  and others are required to give all information required of them to agents of  the Biweau, witless the giving of s~uch  information should''clash with 'their  interests. ThmBureau will give-instruction to [prospectors and others in such  subjects as may be useful to them and will  arrange. <examinations~for-assayei's^and  issue certificates to those who pass them.  Societies of Art and Science, shall have  the privilege of affiliating:-' with the  Bureau. TheiLieut.-Gdvernor in council will iix.the."fee's, for instruction and  also for .the assays which-'the-office will  undertake. (Government will provide a  site* if parliament will find the money to  build a, suitable house for the Bureau,  where a museum will be established,  data collected, and from which inforr  iiiation wiU'be scat'tei-ed, broadcast'.'^\y*e  hope that the bill will become Jaw. It is  not a policy aueasure and therefore the  gbveri__ne_.t" will be able- -to accept  amendments or' suggestions from the  opposition and all parties cau unite'in  perfecting it.  ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. ���������  Wo are given to understand that certain negotiations are proceeding bo  tween the (J. P. R. and Nelson and Fort  Sheppard directors, relative to the junction of the two lines, which involves the  locality of the hitter's station. At present the continuation of the N. .& F. S.  line from Five Mile Point stops at the  eastern boundary of the city, at the spot  where Nelson, the Hume Addition and  Bogus Town meet. We have not been  favoured with any details of the discussion going on between the two railway  companies, nor are we prepared to go  into the question, at present, of the  rights of either. On behalf of the people  of Nelson we proclaim to all whom it  concerns, that the(requirements ofthe  town will hot be satisfied''until the terminus of the Spokane line is in a central  position, say near the government wharf,  arid t he district generally will be satisfied with nothing less than a junction  ofthe two railways.

A telegraphic rumour; passed from one  clerk to another, and addressed to* lio par-  ticular person, has reached town, containing the startling news of the death of Sir  John Thompson, .Prime ^Minister of .Canada. Up to yesterday ;afternoon no confirmation or denial of the event had been  received. We prefer, therefore,, to reserve  bur remarks on the subject until next week,  merely recording our 'sincere hope, in  which we feel'that all parties will join us,  that the report is not true. By the latest  information Sir John' was in England  with his'daughter, and had just received  the'honor of an invitation to dine with The  Queen;   '   ' '  ���������'  . The death of a prime minister naturally  excites curiosity as to his. successors and  gossip (Nelson gossip) points to .Sir  Charles Tupper as the only possible man  in the present ministry1 to take the post.  Jn any 'case the ;Pre__ier's: deatli:' would  liasten the elections' which must be held  shortly, and any. appointment in the meantime would be only temporary. A vacancy  would be created-in the cabinet and there  is_n7rreirs6n*why"it"should_ho."be_ filled by  a British'Columbian.

On the Yakima river Mr'-Johnson collected a larga number of sumac shrubs,  which he-found in greats abundance  there, and also some wild-clematis.- He  also collected a lot of seeds of the lonely  fir and secured 1,000 of the young trees,  200 young white pines and 500 tamaracks or larches. Some are to be planted  in his nursery for the government, and  the remainder are to be sent' -to- Golden  Gate park, San Francisco.

On motion of Mr. Hume it was also  resolved to ask the Lieut Governor to  ilay before ihe House a copy of Judg'i  -.Cre&se's report upon the charges laid  against Capt. Fitzstubbs. This was laid  on the Table the same day by Mr.  Davie.  * The report of Mr. Edward Mohun.  government engineer, on the Nakusp &  Slocan raihvay is included in the Public  "Works report. It is dated November 17.  He gives a description of the road, and  details as to the character of (he bed,  the curvature and grades, the trestle  work and other structures. He says:  "The road, when the details now being  attended to are completed, will, I believe, amply justify its construction. It  is, I imagine, one of the cheapest ever  ..built on this coast, though a great deal  of the work has been very heavy. It is,  of course, a mountain mineral road, on  which ahigh rate of speed is not essential.  Fortunately for the road, though unfortunately for the contractor, the unprecedented flood of last summer tested  and exposed all its weak points, with  the result, it is believed, that there is  but little, to dread from the effects of  future freshets. As you are aware, from  the desirability of pushing construction  last year, no bills of quantities could  be prepared on which to form any estimate of cost. I have, ^however, no doubt  whatever that its construction has cost  more than was anticipated. It is expected that the entire work will be com-  Flete.in every respect very shortly; and  purpose"to leavein a tew day.s~_or the  purpose of making a close and final examination of the road. I have obtained  the elevation - of the following points  -abo.ve sea level, which may prove of interest, viz: Upper Arrow lake, elevation  1.360 feet; Summit, Nakusp pass, 2,4-lG  feet; Slocan.lake, 1731 feet; Three Forks,  Carpenter's creek, 2,556 feet:  The following is the report of the . Royal  ���������Commission   on    the    charges    preferred  against Captain N. Fitzstubbs.  ' Nelson, Kootenay, "  10th September,o!89_.  To   His,, Honour the   Lieutenant-Governor   of  British Columbia:  ' Sir,���������In. pursuance of the Royal Corhmis-'  siou under the Gieat Seal, to me directed  on the 4th day of December, 189-f, to enquire iuto and report to the Lieutenant  Governor upon certain charges made by  Mr. John Sanderson, foreman on the Gov-  ernmenftrail betweeu Nakusp and Slo'cau,  against Capt. N. Fitzstubbs, of Nelson,*  Assistant Commissioner of '"Lands -' and  Works, and Stipendiary ��������� Magistrate"3" of  British Columbia,  aud more particularity  ��������� specified iu such Commission, I have the  .honour to report as follows:���������.  The Commission was opened before me  at the Court House, Nelson,'"on Saturday,  the 8th September; 1894, in the presence,  of the parties to the complaint,- who, together with the witnesses summoned on  the occasion, were duly examined under  oatlj in open Court, upon, all and singular  the matters and things in such' Commis-.  sion contained.  The evidence of Captain N. Fitzstubbs  was clear, open, and complete, leaving no  part of his actions and motives in the  premises unexplained. ;  The general evidence, however, occunng |  in  the midst of - a   busy assize,   was "too-1  lengthy to admit of" a. particular abstract j  for a report.   A careful persual of it, how- j  ever shews very clearly, as complaisant \  frankly admitted, that the first charge was j  made entirely, en revanche for the adverse j  official report upon the complainant's works, j  and consequent, suggestion of liability for |  some of the excess in expenditure contained in the second.   When that point was  disposed of, the interest in pressing the  first immediately weakened.  The investigation before me nevertheless  continued, and was thorough and complete  in every matter embraced in the Commission, to which I beg leave to refer.  From a consideration ot the whole case  I am of opinion and find that, while there  was irregularity in the mode of charging  llie amount, the work it represented was  honestly done and paid for on Government account and for Government work.  There, was consequently no culpability in  the oflicei' impugued, but an error of judgment, from which, in my opinion, he should  bo exonerated.  All of which is respectfully submitted by  Your obedient servant,  Henuy P. PeLTjEW CllEASE,  Commissioner.  International Commission Go.  Carney Kloclk, Nelson, It. C.
