The weather here has been very bad  for- the last two Aveeks, and the roads  are consequently heavy. With the advent of snow, however-, good weather,  good roads, and good busy times may  be looked for, As it-is, there can be no  "kick" on the times, for- steady progress  has been made in the last two months.  The dance last Thursday, given in aid  of the Hospital, was a great success.  Everyone went home pleased, as also  were the Hospital board, who netted  $57. Great credit is due to the energy  of the ladies who had the getting up of  the, affair.  J. L. Retallack, has bought .Adams  and Whcton's, shipment of ore, mention  of which was  made a few  weeks ago.  A large crowd of Kasloites,, chartered  the Idaho tug for a week, and left Friday (unlucky dixy) for the Kootenay  meadows, They intend a general niay-  sacre of ducks and geese, and their arrival is expectantly awaited by their  admiring friends.  A four horse stupe is now running from  Northport to the Le R >i mine, and will  run regularly hereafter connecting with  tho trains twice a week. Surveys show  the length of the road to be li% miles-  Forty-two dollar's for a few hours  work is not bad pay for two men, one  old and the other "a novice. And yet  this is what J. H. Hit chic and John  Dngan got ont of a bank at Forty-nine  Cieek one day this week.  Nelson keeps on growing. A new  store is being built on tlie lot adjoining  the post (iliice. When finished the  the building will be opened as a. butchers  shop by Messrs.- Farley, and Traves  A. S. Farwell has rented the new  office--: built by Harold Selous on Stanley-  street.  Admirers of Stanley "Weymr.n will be  glad to hear that Stanley will shortly have a"'  supply of his last work "My Lady Eotha."  Our enterprising news agent has also  ordered a plentiful supply of all the  Christmas numbers of the illustrated  papers and magazines.  A. Melt. L'eitch some few weeks ago  opened a barber shop on Baker street next  to Stanley's Book and News Depot. In  spite of the fact that Nelson already possessed two competent barbers Mv. Leitcb.  finds plenty of business coming his way.  This is doubtless owing to his skill at his  trade, for the excellence of which he has  long been known in Victoria aud elsewhere.  Inspector Fletcher of the. Post Ollice  Dept. has been in town _ during the week  and has given his attention to the many  complaints made to him about the mail  service. Mr. Fletcher complains that  many of the irregularities are not the fault  of the'post office arrangements, but are  owing to the negligence and carelessness of  the contractors who undertake to carry  them out.  Wc.-see  Travelling  by  our exchanges that a  merchant tailor is about to  pay a visit to this country. Only recently one of these gentry took away $1,500  of orders with him. Why is it necessary  to send out of the country for clothes?  The. two Nelson tailors, Alessrs. Squire  and Price, are quite well able to give  as good value for money as outsiders  and local men ought to,be patronised.  The approach of winter affords to ladies  a very suitable opportunity of providing  for their male Mends inany little com-  foi table garments and wraps that arejiot  usually obtainable in ordinary stores. Ou  Wednesday next a sale of work is to be  held at the Church of England Mission  Koom at which no doubt those of us who  have no wives, mothers or sisters here to  make them for ns, will rind many things  we want.

The "Ross, McLaren company  is composed of eastern,lumber men, who  have two large mills in this province,  one. near Westminister and the other  near "Vancouver. One has never been  worked and the other has been shut  down for three years owing to the low  price of lumber. It is stated that both  mills will he started shortly. The Port  Blakely mill is said to have tendered  for die contract.  There is how living on the Cowichan  Indian reserve, an old kloolcbmau named  Tow kurn-alit, who can justly claim to be  the oldest living person on the continent  of America. Her age is set down at 116  years, and this is fairly well authenticated  by the Indians of her tribe. For example  Zapatiste, an old 'man still living, and  who was married aud had children before  the building of the Hudson's Bay fort here  in 1847, vouches for the fact that Tow  kum-aht was a vary old woman as far back  as he could remember. By those who  know the' habits of these Indians, it is said  that in former years the Indian men did  not marry before they were 20 or 21 years  of age. Consequently his recollections  must go back at the least calculation C3 or  64 years, and if Tow kum-aht was a very  old woman then, she must be considerably  over a hundred years of age now. The old  woman for years back has -been gradually  drying up and seasoning till she looks, as  one man expressed it, like a "healthy old  mummy." For a number years she has  lost the use of her legs, aud can only crawl  about. Still she seems to keep the use of  her faculties fairly well" She is not the  only old stager among tho Cowichans, for  Mr. W. Ii. Lomas, the Indian Agent, says  that old Hulcai'lotstun, who died last year,  saw seven generations of his descendants  before he died.  alleged frauds he was compelled" to  resign and was succeeded by Sir John  S.

To The-Editor :-One of the things  that  strikes a stranger to  this country is  the  great backwardness of the inhabitants with j  regard1 to the development of their mines. I  You hear numbers of mines spoken of: I  but, when practiculars are asked for,  you I  simply hear, "Oh, it is only a prospect;]  no development work doue: we haven't the '  ihcney to develope. but the assays are very  gooh (of course, these are picked samnles),  'going from Sb'O up to "SI,000  per  ton.    If  .you want a good prospect   you   should  come and look at it.   We only" want $10,-  '000, or 320,000, or ftlOO.OUO." as the case  may be: these men forgetting, or not knowing that  the day  of  selling  prospects  nt  high figures  has gone by: and now   the  legitimate miner will only look at a mine  ���������when the development has been done under proper mining management, and he  can see that there is sufficient ore in sight,  "and he is able to sample the mine properly  to be able to judge whether the mine will  pay for the amount of capital that will  be  o required in opening it up or not.     Again  ���������prospectors do not seem to know that their  country is only a small part of the globe;  jth'at there are mines in other countries;  .  that, as a  rule,  labour is much  cheaper,  .and that, therefore, the mines  pay   better  'in those countries.   Now,   here you  have  several drawbacks, high labour; difficulty  of carriage (when it can be had it i.s ex-  'treniely cosiiy);   troublesome restrictions  and red tajie; and last,"but   not   least,  having to d 'pend,  for the, most  part,  ou  outside provinces or  states for supplies.  ���������With every advantage for themauui'aclurer,  ��������� you have, 1 believe, only two  iron  works,  no smelters, and i-o concentrators, though,  ������I  hear,  tw ���������  of  th se  are  being erected.  But where is the coal?    At Avhafc figure  can it be go' ?   If it can be got. what about  the costly cuurge i'or transport?   It seems  .extraordinary   that with   "such   valuable  deposits of coal for instance like the one  in the Crow's Nest Pass, with ils great  promise, with its easy route for a  railroad,  its extreme value as a  coal, equalling the  best English coal, aud the large amount of  coal in sight, being wanted as it is to  such  a great extent in the  Slocan district and  in other parts  where the ores could be  worked so profitably on the old-fashioned,  ���������inexpensive method of the Scotch Heath  and the Posan system of separation of the  silver and lead on the mines themselves,  without having resort to the -various mines  now buying, thereby saving the expense of  bagging, shipment, etc.    Again, considering the amount of iron ores, both ou  this  side and the eastern side of the mountains,  why is not something done with these?

The machine consists of a Two Stamp Prospectiug Mill, and is capable of nutting  through-Six Tons per diem. The entire plant consists of Boiler. Steam Pump and  Copper Tables. Weight, 2,800 pounds. It. is built in sections which can be taken  apart and easily transported by pack animals.

It commanded attention by reason of its simplicity and evident, practibility. Experienced mining engineers were astonished to  learn that such a machine had been iu successful operation for over, two years in the  extreme north-western part oi the United States.

The answer is not far to. seek.  Wild-cat schemes have been so long foisted  on the capitalist that at last, out. of sheer  desperation, he has to say:���������"I don't waut  to have anything to do with mines in  America or Canada."  Here is an overpowering answer, and it  is ohly by a desperate eifort that confidence  can be again placed in mines iu America  to gain English or French capital.' Eow  can this be done? Only by a thorough  lgovernment enquiry into all mines now  being opened and worked, done by people  acquainted with mining and thoroughly  conversant with the same, by showing  large parcels of ore and their assays in  other countries, so as to draw attention to  tbe same, by a thorough report, not by.  interested parties, on each mine; amount  of development work done; amount of ore  in sight; its value by assay, done by government men well up in their work, and  shewn to the world with maps, plans, etc.,  "both of mines and machinery, ns is done  'in Italy at the present day, where the  'government require:���������1st.

"r,  Address  The Miner Printing & publishing Co.  NELSON.   B.C.  1    , !   PROVINCIAL   INDEPENDENCE.  Mr. Spkoat's letter in another part of  this issue clou Is with a matter of great  interest to every Canadian on which  great misapprehension exists, owing to  the different views which have been  taken of the position of tlie provinces.  It appears (hat the Judicial Committee  of the. English Privy Council have, hy  successive decisions, settled many of the  questions that have arisen on the subject. The board is the highest court of  appeal in the Ei.ipire for colonial and  East Indian eases, and some lliink that  Sin John* Thompson,, if. he- retired from  the premiership or the premiership retired from him, would make a good  member of it. We have hunted up  one of the decisions, the "Maritime  Bank against the Receiver-General of  New Brunswick," in 18!)2, and quote here  some strongly expressed opinions of  Loiro Watson, who delivered the  unanimous decision of their- Lordships:  -'The object of the Act, the Act of 1807,  was neither to weld the provinces into  one nor to subordinate provincial  governments to a central authority; but  to create a federal government in which  they should all be represented each  province retaining its independence and  autonomy" "the legislation of each  province continues to be free from the  control of the Dominion and as supreme  as it wrts before the passing ofthe Act."���������  "The status of a provincial legislature  is. in 110 way analogous to that of a  municipal institution."���������"Tlie appointment of a provincial governor is made  by thc 'Governor-General in .Council, by  ���������instr-umcnt-imder--the-Great���������Seal���������of  Canada,' or, in other words, by the Executive Government of. the Dominion,  which is expressly declared to 'continue  and be vested in.the Queen.' There is  tibconstitulionalanomaly in an executive  officer of the Crown receiving his appointment at the hands of a governing  body who have no powers and no functions except as representatives of the  Crown. The act of the Governor-  Creueral and his council in making the  appointment is, within the meaning of  the statute, the act ofthe Crown, and a  Lieutenant-Governor when appointed is  as much the representative of Her  Majesty for all. purposes of provincial  government as the Governor-Genorai  himself is for the purposes of Dominion  Government." And much more to the  same effect. We. may add that the  Privy Council expressed similar opinions  in the well known Ontario case of  "Hodge v.: the Queen," and in other  cases to which it is unnecessary to refer.  It is therefore clear that the words, "Her  Majesty enacts," have exactly and  fully the significance in the laws of our  Assembly that, these words have in laws  passed in the parliament-of Canada.  The two bodies are on the same level,  each'in its own sphere supreme. This  is not affected by one body having more  members than the other.  and'seeing the article following entitled  "Blind Men," which we had previously  read in The Province,  we   made   sure  that our local contemporary had come  over to the Free Trade camp,  and we  were prepared to rejoice over the one  sinner that repenteth.   We even looked  forward   to    the    time when   side   by  side   we   could   advocate the cause   of  Free Trade. But our hopes were doomed  to disappointment.   In a few carelessly  tossed off sentences our contemporary  seeks to answer the arguments of The  Province.. As well, might 'they, try to  work an hydraulic claim with a child's  squirt.   The arguments of The Province  will stand against all attacks   because  they are tacts, and no amount of sophis- j.  try or round about talk can make them  budge   an    inch.     The   reason   of  the  failure of,,the  Britjsh farmer,  may- be  owing to free trade.   He has.to compete  with other   farmers   in   Russia, India,  Australia and South America, who are  all pouring in grain grown on lands that  cost next tonothing to buy or till.   The  grain is grown in large quantities where  the  fullest benefits of  the latest agricultural  machinery   may   be obtained.  Tlie English..farmer with.high rent to  pay, exhausted lands,  small fields and  antiquated   methods of agriculture can  not compete with his foreign rivals, who  enter   the   same    market   un restricted.  But clap on a duly of, say,  a shilling a  bushel.     Then   the  British   farmer   is  himself again and forgets the days of  his  trial in  the  happiness of his   yvell  filled  pockets.     But who. filled them?  The workingmen of England.    The moment the duty was imposed up went the  price of bread  and hungry   thousands  had to starve to fill the farmer's pocket.  The many suffer to benefit the few.   Our  contemporary could not have selected a  better1  text  upon   which   to   show  the  fallacies   of   protection..    Whenever   a  mail, or a sot of men, are found praising  the policy  of protection,  be sure that  they are lining (heir pockets at their  neighbours expense.  to reprove it. Having done so we wish  to let the matter drop, but we are met  with a challenge to say when the Tribune has jumped on a man when'he was  down. We regret to say that we made  use of the wrong expression. Instead of  ". jumping on" we should have written  "hit." The moral cowardice which is  the point we desired to make is, however, the same. For facts and particulars, as asked for, we beg, to refer our  contemporary to our issue of the 5th  Mar last, when in an article headed  "Un-English," we pointed ont how our  contemporary when describing Captain*  Fitzstubbs as a dying man, had, with  atotal lack of feeling for its (so called)  dying enemy, continued its attacks upon  him.  MR.   MARTINS STATEMENT.  In accordance with the time honoured  but absurd and out of date constitutional  practice the Hon. G. B. Mabtin on his  appointment to the Chief Commission-  ership of Lands and AVorks had to go  back to his constituents to be re-electeu.  There was some talk of attempting to  wrest the seat from the government, the  result of which had it been successful  would almost have driven the government to make the minister out of one of  the Island members. However, the  chances of success were so small that  the project was abandoned and Mb.  Martin was elected by acclamation.  Having made some sort of boast about  putting up a candidate the opposition  press-had���������to-disli���������up _some_ excuse-to"  cover its retreat and so the News-Advertiser announced that the opposition  candidate was withdrawn because Mb.  Martin had solemnly pledged himself  not to support the British Pacific.  Thereupon a lively jangle broke out'in  the coast papers. The story was repeated  by the opposition press and loudly  denied by the Colonist and its mates.  After1 reading a" great many different  reports on the matter, what Mr. Martin  did really say appears t"o be that he saw  no reason for altering or adding to the  statements he had already made on this  subject during his previous campaign.  This was that he was "opposed to giving  the projected railway any further aid  than that already promised. The News-  Advertiser in,a.later issue'states that  Mr. Davie has also pledged himself not  to recommend a government guarantee  for the scheme.  THE OWNERSHIP OF GOLD.

The country in which gold has  been discovered-near Alberni lies within  the Dunsmuir grant. Upon the discovery of gold the question at once a-  rose as. to whether precious metals, were  included in minerals. The case of Bain-  bridge v. the E. & N. Railway was  tried to test the question.

The plaintiff  complained that on June 23 he had been  summarily ejected by the defendants  from a duly recorded placer' claim known  as the Blue Ruin, in Alberni district,  and he moved for- an order to restrain  them from interfering with him in his  alleged right to mine for gold there. By  consent of both parties'the motion was  turned into a motion for judgment.  The written judgment resulting, briefly stated, declares that under the terms  of-the land subsidy act the gold mines  have not been severed from the titles of  the Crown, but that the act conveys  only such minerals aud mines as would  pass under the term of lands in an  ordinary grant to the subject.  As to the further question whether  the defendants have the right to prevent  the extraction of gold and silver from  their-lands, His Lordship says:  "The.rights of miners to enter upon  land for mining -purposes is apparently  not limited to Crown lands. Independent of statutory authority no person  has a right to trespass on private lands,  but section 959 of the Crown Lands Act  18S8 authorizes free miners to enter upon any lands in the province to search  and work for gold and silver, following  in substance the language used���������.iu the  act existing at the date of the grant of  these lands to the Crown. These lands,  in my.opinion, are therefore subject to  the right of entry by free miners to  search for the precious metals, subject  to the conditions precedent contaiued  in section II of the Placer Mining Act,  1891, which conditions both parties  admit have been complied with. 1 therefore give judgment for the plaintiff with  costs."  We understand that the question has  also been submitted tothe Privy Council.  ALMOST   CONVERTED.  Our contemporary has rather, a strange  way of pushing its ideas. It reprints  at length an article from The Province  in defence of Free Trade, with an intro-  .ductory statement made "by one of the  most enlightened Free Traders in  Kootenay" that it is the best article he  had. ever seen in any paper in.British  Columbia.     Reading this introduction  .CERTAINLY NOT BRITISH.  We had last week to make some  severe comments on our contemporary's  methods of journalism. 'We did this not  because'the process is pleasant but because it was our duty to the public to do  so. A newspaper is always looked up to  by its immediate readers'as a treasury  of'sound advice and honest expression  of manly principles. To outside readers  a newspaper is looked upon as the reflection of. the ideas of its local supporters. In both of these characters a  properly managed journal should be  most careful of its statements. It should  provide honest information for its fellow-  townsfolk at home and at the same time  maintain the reputation of.its district to  those abroad. When therefore our contemporary outsteps the bounds ������of  journalistic decency it becomes our duty  OVERLAPPING CLAIMS.  The Slocan Times replies in a rather  abusive manner to the article in our  edition of the 18th inst on the above  subject. It is admitted on all sides that  our mining laws are imperfect and inadequate and all questions relating to  them are of the greatest interest to this  community. If the Slocan Times can  show that our laws deal fairly with the  question under discussion we shall be  glad to hear'it, but we cannot see the  necessity for turning an-argument on  this subject into a torrent of abuse.  The Editor of the Slocan Times we know  considers himself an authority on all  legal matters but we should have  thought that' in view of. the result of  certain recent professional decisions of  his, it would have been in better taste  not to talk quite so loudly about legal  knowledge, '; In order to make the. matter clearer we will put a case and. ask if  any similar case has been decided' by  any court of competent "jurisdiction  either in Canada, Australia or the United  Slates. Our example is as follows: A  claim is located by "A" but not recorded,  "B," before the expiration of the time  allowed by law for "A" to record his  claim in, also locates a claim which, however, covers part of the ground located  by "A" "B" records. Can "C" locate!  and hold "A"s original location includ- \  ing that portion subsequently staked by .  "B," on the ground that "B"s location  was bad as to so much of his claim as  overlapped "A's location and was there-:  fore occupied ground. '  Such cases lave frequently   occured'  ! and we know of at least one good claim \  ��������� 'i.������ii  ���������i ...  119 GOVERNMENT ST.,   VICTORIA. B. C.

The following special to the Montreal  Star will be read with interest:  London-, October 17.���������At a 'meeting of the  directors of ihe chartered Bank of India, 'Australia and China held'this afternoon, "the chairman announced that thc government had given  their sanction to the coinage of a British dollar,  for circulation in the Straits Settlements and  Flong Kong. Thc fall in the price of silver, he  said had directed eastern trade and lessened the  export of the "Mexican dollar to *uoh an extent as  to. threaten . the eastern colonies .with a total  absence of currency. In these circumstances,  hanks, local governments and chambers of commerce had, asked in concert and obtained the  sanction of the Treasury' for the coinage of a  British dollar in Bombay, which would probably  be in circulation in the east in the early part of  lSt>5.  The effect of this cannot but be beneficial to this country. The new coins  will probably become the favorite money  throughout. the Sti aits, the .Peninsula  and China itself, while even in Japan  they will probably have a circulation.  A'- CORRECTION.  Our contemporary . mentioned last  week that the English Royal Family  had not a drop ofjBiilish blood in their  veins. . If by "Britislv'our contemporary  means the ancient1 inhabitants of the  tight little island who built Stonehenge  and painted themselves blue before the  coming of the Romans, it is probably  right. But Her Majesty is a direct descendant of the Norman, Plantagenet,  Tudor and Stuart Sovereigns, who ruled  England from "the eleventh century  onward. To trace' an ancestry backwards for nearly nine hundred years in  one country and through the line of  kings of that country, too, seems to;us  to entitle the present representative of  the family to consider herself a native.  *MIMX������.

THE MINER, NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3 [894.  CORRESPONDENCE.  .A QUESTION OE PRECEDENCE.  Sir.���������The Canadian Trade Review,  quoted by the Montreal Star, stated  lately that tlie prevalent notion that the  Lieutenant-Governor of a province is,  as such, the representative of the Queen,  is "entirely erroneous." The opinions  of two Governors-General are cited to  suppoi't this view, and it is added that  Sir A. Campbell, a "sound constitutional  lawyer," when appointed Lieutenant-  Governor of Ontario, dispensed for the  above reason with several public ceremonies    as    not   appropriate    to    his  position. . ,.,-,,  This  is an old question   which  dates  from the confederation of the Dominion.  A federation,  let me say,   may  be  the  weakest or the strongest form of government.   The bonds will not bear a straw,  if too loose, but a federation  with thai  danger obviated and needful strength  in (he central government assured, probably is the most safe and durable  form  of   national   existence.      The    United  States   have   been    working   out   this  problem of political science for a cen-  turv, at great cost, but upon  the  whole  successfully.    Canada for a quarter of  that period has been doing something ol  "the same sort.   The Conservatives, uncier  the masterful   leadership   of   Sir John  Macdonald, favoured always the  elevation of the central  authority  and the  subordination   of   the   provinces.     I lie  Liberals, on the contrary,   while admitting  that  the.  national   administration  should   be   strong and   efficient,'   have  regarded thc provinces as supreme within their own sphere.    Our organic Act���������  the Imperial British North America Act  of 1807���������wisely avoided theoretic definitions, and left adjustments to be tested  as far as might be,   in the actual  working of our institutions and to  be  finally  settled by the Judicial Committee of. the  English "Privv  Council.    The decisions  of the Board upon questions appealed to  it  have been,   directly  and indirectly,  interpreting and making the constitution  of Canada as  to matters  not explicitly  settled in the B. N. A. Act.    It has been  established already by dicta and recommendations  which   have   the   force   ot  judgments, that the Conservative's conception of the Canadian  constitution  is  incorrect.     The   Act   of   18G7   has not  severed . the   connection   between   the  Crown and the provinces.   The relation  between them is the same as that which  subsists between   ihe   Crown   and  the  Doruinion as to executive and legislative  Sjovvers respectively vested.    The  pro-,  vinces   do   not  occupy   a   subordinate,  position.     They   derive    no   authority  from  the Government ot Canada,  lm\,  have   exclusive   and supreme  administrative powers, within the limits assigned  by section-92 of the  Organic Act.  And    for    all    purposes   of   provincial  government the  Lieutenant-Governor is  as much the representative of the Queen  as the Governor-General himself is tor  all purposes of the Dominion  Government. ., ,.    ���������  The above Privy Council construction  of the Act, which can only be  set aside  by the Imperial Parliament, shows that  the  "great statesmen" of the Conservatives have for many'years been attempting to work a  political   machine of the  nature of which they had for rued a very  imperfect conception.
