Two forces of men have been at work  constructing a winter road from here to  the concentrator. A good grade has  been secured all the way and tbe matter  is being energetically pusbed by the  committee. Government aid to be  extended towards tbe completion of the  road is asked for, as despite the railroad  between here and Three Forks the road  is a necessity.  Jef. Lewis, an old timer of these parts,  returned from Trail Creek this week and  reports that camp as being in a flourishing condition. Although supplies are  just as expensive there as here the wages  paid on roads, etc., are not so high. The  Slocan. is the better' camp for laborers.  ���������Charcoal���������Browir- has ���������just- returned  from a long prospecting trip. He discovered and traced float for a long distance beyond Lemon Creek going southward, but has made no locations. The  ore contains very little-galena nnd Char-  foal says it is high grade enough for  him to. make another trip into that  section of country next spring.  There are several trappers up the Little  Slocan and along the Slocan River.  Martin "are^ reported as very plentiful  this season.  "������������������    Mr. Easton  has received  instructions  : to prepare plans and call for tenders for  the   construction   of  a  gaol  at Three  Forks.  r- -���������'- -   .  The road from* here to the concentrator is being pushed abend with all  the speed possible and wheu completed  will be found to be on a" good grade all  the way.  Hunter & McKinnoii, having sold their  store building and lot, are1 closing the  store here and in future; will confine  their business to Silverton.  Freeze & Ryan will move into Hunter  & McKinnon's old store.  The ..craze for Living Pictures in  eastern cities has now spread west anii  New Denver is to have its "Grecian Art  Tableaux" next week. It is to be hoped  that the Living Pictures here will not  .be reproduced so realistically in the  matter of clothing as has been the case  in some of the eastern cities.  The. theatre project has, we understand,  fallen   through   and deposits have   beeu  .   returned to  subscribers less a small reduction for expenses incurred.  elude a considerable number of claims  located with surface rights and also the  town of Rossland, and lieu lands will be  selected to cover" an equal area. Several  parties who had purposed pre-empting  adjoining lands as soon as the reserve is  lifted find, that they are within the  railroad grant and will have to make  terms with the N. & F. S. Railroad  Company.  Mr. Gore reports the country traversed  as very rough and unsuited for settlement," No merchantable timber was  seen, but a few small hay meadows near  Sheep Creek afford a little pasture and  these have been located by parties on  the spot.  The Commissioners of Stevens County,  Wash., came in with E. J. Roberts, the  engineer', after'traversing the new.road  to this point from Northport, across the  Colville Indian reservation. It is understood they were satisfied as to its condition and will vote an allotment of  funds in aid of the cost of construction.  The question as to the use of this road  is still under discussion. Captain Troup  meets Mr. Corbin in Spokane as to the  conveyance of mails, and it is hoped that  facilities may be afforded for the delivery  of U. S. mails over that road. The more  important question as to whether the  ore from these mines will go out over  that road or, as now, through Trail  Landing, is eagerly discussed. The  Northport people are indignant at the  idea of the traffic going anywhere else  than to them, but it is one of those subjects which will settle itself by the cost  of freighting and the regular continuity  of transport along these competing  routes.  We are still without any mail service  between here and Trail Landing, and  depend on the good nature of anybody  who happens to volunteer to bring it up,  a thankless office, and one which should  have been undertaken by the post office  authorities long since. -  The Le Roi Mining Co. are seeking to  obtain eight more miners to work in  their shaft, but it is considered so dangerous to life that few are willing to run  the risk. The men are woiking at the  shaft bottom some 300 feet down, the  shaft follows the wavy lines of the lead  and any accident overturning the bucket  of ore as it comes up on the skids would  result fatally for the men in the shaft.  Such a shaft for prospecting purposes only is excusable to a depth of,  say, 250 feet, but when good ore in large  bodies is struck it is time to sink a vertical shaft and run levels on to the vein.  This is a matter- of serious comment in  camp.  The War Eagle shaft is now within  a few feet of the tunnel, which may be  expected to be reached within a day or  two.  still further distresses those who would  pay but cannot. Also in other actions tlie  expense of litigants aiid witnesses would  be greatly decreased by your granting this  petition. The citizens will provide comfortable quarters for holding court aud do  all in their power to facilitate the business  thereof while sitting. "  Some fifty cases are docketted from this  district, which means approximately 200  persons going to Nelson, which- they can  ill afford at the present time.  Trusting that your Honor will grant this  petition,  We have the honor to be sir,  Your petitioners.  A.W. Wright, W. Lynch, J. B. Wilson,  Charles L. Arnold, J. B. McArthur, Mike  Mack, 11. Jennings, George Miruilly, O.  T. Stone, Green-Bn-s. and fifty others.  The grading of the line from Five  Mile to Nelson is nearly completed between Daly's Point and the terminus,  and judging by the almost continuous  shots that come echoing down from the  'other part work must be proceeding  there rather briskly too.  There does not seem to be much en-  thusiaism over tbe formation of a curling  club in Nelson and in this respect Nelson is somewhat behind its neighbors.  At Golden there is a club and the inhabitants have been recently employing  themselves gettingjthe rink in order. At  Donald they are iixing up a  slide.  toboggan  A car load of ore from the Dardanells  mine averaged 375 ounces of silver to  the tori",  Twenty-two carloads' of machinery,  have been received at Lytton for the  new gold Dredging Company.  A thousand pounds of ore from Cariboo Creek near Nakusp assayed from  $86 to $210 in gold to the ton with some  silver and copper.  From Alberni comes the news that  $1000 was taken from a pothole in the  Vandal mine on Rock Creek in one day  by F. Vandal and A. T. Beaton.  It is said that 40 men are averaging  $6 per day on Rock1 Creek in the South  Okanagan.  A valuable find of mica has been made  near Naknsp.  One of the largest diamond*drills on  the Pacific Coast, .capable of boring  4,000 feet has been taken to Port Angeles  on the Straits of Fuca, just opposite  Victoria, by an Ohio syndicate to be  used in boring for coal;  A telegram from London says that in  the Chancery Division of the High Court  of Justice, on Nov. 8th, Mr. Justice  Romer handed down his decision in the  McArthur-Forrest cyanide gold extraction process patent litigation. The  action was brought by the owners of  patent against alleged infringers and the  patent is declared invalid. The decision  is against the owners of the patent and  may have considerable, effect in America,  where the process, is also patented and  in use.  .  KASLO.  (From our own correspondent.)

A case of robbery, well it isn't safe to  say what it is as the case was tried with  closed doors, was tried here Tuesday.  It seems a,young man, Burt King, was  relieved of some $700 ($200 in cash, rest  in check, which was stopped) by a friend  whom, he knew--well. The money was  returned, however, on condition of his  not splitting. The authorities got wind  of the affair and acting with commendable zeal put the "friend" on trial, with  what result is not yet known.      ,,  .  The following petition has been ; got  up  in Kaslo.  To VV. W. Spinks, Esq.,.'  Judge of the County Court,  West Kootenay, B. C.  Sir,���������We your petitioners being residents, free1"'miners, plaintiffs, defendants,  witnesses and solicitors of Kaslo City, B.  C.', hereby request your Honor to hold the  next County Court, in this city: for the  purpose pf trying all cases, in which we,  your petitioners, are interested, or which  arise in this city or adjacent western towns,  viz.: Bear Lake, Three Forks, Watson, &o.  But for the hardness of the times, plaintiffs would not be presenting and defendants would not be defending actions to the  The negotiations which have been under way for some time past for the purchase, of the Victoria Hydraulic company's claims on the North and South  Forks of Quesnelle river, were closed  last; Friday, and the property, transferred tothe.new syndicate. This is composed of Messrs. Geo. A. Cox, president  of the Canadian Bank of Commerce,  and Win. McKenzie, president of the  street railway, Toronto, D. D. Mann and  T. G. Holt," contractors of Montreal,  also representing other eastern capitalists, and F. S. Barnard, M. P., of  Victoria,  the original owners also   re-  _taining_-_a_c_o_nsUlerable interest.. The  amount paid to the latter in cash and  paid up stock is understood to be in the  neighborhood of $70,000. The purchasers, to whom the proposition was  introduced by Mr. Barnard, secured the  services of Mr. Boss Brown, a well  known mining engineer of California,'  on the properties. Air-. Ross Brown was  not only "well satisfied with the prospects for developing a profitable mine,  but also expressed himself very favorably of the whole of that section of the  province, believing thai-there are numerous auriferous channels of ancient  rivers, which-'will pay largely by hy-  draulicrng.  Winter made a fair beginning yesterday.  On Wednesday and Thursday nights there  were good hard frosts and yesterday morning it began to snow. By the evening  there were a couple of inches with prospect of more. The boys took advautage  of the snow to commence slidiug and slipping down the sloping side walks and we  saw more than one adult involuntarily do  the same thing.  There was a good attendance of ladies  on Thursday afternoon in the English  Church to consider the hospital question.  A general committee for the purposes oE  visiting etc, was appointed, and consists of  the following ladies ; Mesdames Akehurst,  Muir, Oaks, McMorris, Morden, Turner,  and Dow and Miss Scanlan. It was also  decided to have a ball early iu December  in aid of the Hospital Fund, to arrange  for which a special committee was appu n-  ed as follows: Mesdames Fletcher, Goepel,  Wilson, Hodson, Croasdaile, McFarlaue,  and Misses Irvine and Scott. Both committees will meet ou Tuesday afternoon at  3 o'clock in the English Church Mission  Room.  R. G. McConnell and H. Y. Russell, of  the Geological Survey, have returned to  Ottawa from the scene of their summer's  field work in West Kootenay. Four or  five years ago, said Mr. McConnell to a  reporter, prospectors began to go iuto  Western Kootenay, and today there are  eight or nine thousand people, of whom four  or five are engaged in mining. Mines have  been started everywhere. The Kootenay  is bound to be a good mining country.  Silver and gold are to be found in abundance! The Slocan camp, which is among  the largest in the couutry,' although, said  Mr. McConnell, every camp claims to be  the largest, will this year ship a million  dollars worth of silver ore. Other camps  expect to ship other large quantities of ore.  Some of tho mines have bee_ well fitted up  with machinery. There is alsi> considerable  gold mining, said Mr.. McConnell, and the  returns for the labor spent are very satisfactory. The magnificent forests of the  district have beeu badly destroyed by fire  this year and the loss is inestimable. The  river valleys are covered with heavy virgin  forest, but the timber on the sides of the  mountains has been much burnt. The  principal timber trees are the Douglas fir,  the cedar aud spruce. The miners are  accountable for the burning of the forests,  for they are careless in putting out fires.  his trapping, reports having on his way  down come upon the remains of a man,  some 161 miles up. He could not distinguish the face, in fact he could not tell  whether there was any head on the frame  or not.'" The bears, he said, had eaten all  the flesh off the bones All he could see  was the feet with shoes and stockings on.  The body was found at the. mouth of Salmon river. Presumably this is one of the  three who went up the North Thompson  on a prospecting tour last spring, they  having left Kamloops in the latter part of.  April last. There never was any doubt in  our mind as to the sad fate of these men,  from the reports drought down by J. F.  Smith and party. The circumstances of  the dugout and ropes being found some 60  miles below where they had made their  cache and the amount of provision in the  cache for the time.out, were to our mind  conclusive evidence that an accident had  befallen the party in an attempt to cross  to the opposite shore of the Thompson  with ill-constructed boats at a very, high  stage of water. There can no longer be any  doubt as to the sad fate of these poor fellows, whose names are George McCabe,  Nelson Dupee and A. Sturtevant. They  han eight horses, which will no doubt-  perish like their masters during the approaching winter.  CANADIAN   NEWS.  A Ladies Golf Club has beeu established  at London, Ontario.

The following passage from his concluding chapter-as specially worthy-of attention: ���������  Thereare many people in England who  believe1 that the future fate of the British  Empire is to be a confederation, having1  Loudon for its centre, and 'that the colonie's  will favor the scheme. If there is one  profound conviction that I have acquired  in slimy travels among the Anglo-Saxons  in the aifl'ereut parts ot the world, itis that  the colonies do not want confederation, and  will never move towards the realization of  thatrdream in which so many patriotic  Britons indulge. To begin with,, the  colonies are much too jealous of oue another to care for amalgamation. Each  one will insist on keeping its indiv.duality,  nay; its1 nationality. Moreover, hot one of  them lias the least desire to be mixed up in  any'quarrels that England may one day  have'Avith any European power. John Bail  would do WfjJ to get the confederation idea  out of his head. With the exception of  Canada, which may possibly one day become part of the United States, the colonies  will remain bniuclies of the firm John Bull  and Company, or'they will become independent.' lor anyone who has felt the  pulse of those countries, it is impossible to  think otherwise.  We do no'J necessarily agree with the  witty Freuc .man i.bout the future of  Canada, bu: it the D_raLioa is to pass  under the rule ofthe Stars and Stiipes it is  a comfort-to think that the British Empire  is wide aud those of us who may prefer the  Union Jack will no doubt find -a welcome  in some other part of it. .

The  Cathedra! of Assumption, which is used  for coronation ceremonies, is much larger  than' the Cathedral of the Arch-Angel  Michael,' but is not so beautiful as the latter building, it has'been filled with precious  pictures and gems of gold, brass and wood  carving. The city is. sparing nothing in  its effort to show its loyalty aud sorrow.  Subscriptions for a monument to Alexander III, in Moscow.have beeu opened.  St. Petersburg, Nov. 13.���������The funeral  train with the body of the late Czar on  board, arrived at the Nicholas station last  night aud'was shunted upon a sidetrack  until this morning, iu order to enable the  members'of the imperial family to finish  their night's rest. As soon as all the -preparations of ;,the. funeral were completed,  shortly after 10' a/'ni., the imperial train  re-entered.the railroad station. The body  was transferred to the hearse in waiting  and was conveyed to thc cathedral through  t the'densely crowded street, guarded by  thousands of troops. "The cortege then  moved through the principal streets to the  St. Peter.and St. Paul cathedral:  . - There a short service was held in the  presence of the Czar, the diplomatic corps  and many of .the. Russian "nobility. The  Czar and other Russian, imperial "personages and foreign princes carried the coffin  into, the church with-the same ceremony  as had been observed in Moscow, depositing it on the catafalque.  ^ Among all the niining machines and appliances shown at the ' World's- Columbian  Exposition there was nothing which excited more,interest and favorable comment than  the Tbemaine Steam Stamp. Mim. in the Mining Building.   It was a positive novelty-  extreme north-western part oi the United States  (9)  to  the  which had been lost. Gossip had it that  the mine was a dream of gold. Its  original discoverer was Edward Rhodes,  a California miner in the days of Brig-  ham Young. Rhodes was a Mormon  and submitted at all times to the mandates of Brigham Young. He told the  Mormon leader of the mine, but was not  permitted to work it for- fear of bringing  thousands of Gentiles into the Territory.  Finally he told Davis, who went with  him to see the mine. On the return  Rhodes was killed by Indians. This was  Davis' story, now one of the old mining  legends. The men who found the claim  had Davis' maps, and found everything  all right except the chunks of gold.  This ends another "lost mine" yarn.  gicjVsjCorner  VANCOUVER, B. C.

In other words the Acts of Parliament under which companies are registered in British Columbia require a very  considerable amount of overhauling.  It may be possible to build up a good  ship out of the timbers of the three old  hulks, but Lt-would-probably be better  to buy new. When the British-investor-  subscribes to a company he is apt to  suppose that his relations as an individual shareholder- with the compauy as  a. whole are, broadly speaking, the same  as he has been accustomed to under1 his  own excellent Act of 1S02, and he is  liable to be brought up with a very  I'ouud turn in consequence, for in the  Acts of this province there are more  things than are dreamed of in many  men's philosophy.' To begin with there  are three separate and different Acts1  apart from amending Acts, oue of which  is the Imperial Act of 1862, slightly  altered. The Act itself is not quoted at  length, so that the British Columbian  ���������who turns up the Statute of his own  province, which he may be expected to  possess, to inform'himself on some point  finds himself referred for all details to  the Imperial Act of 1862, of which he  decidedly cannot be expected to have a  copy. v, .  1 Lawyers'will say that the present  state of company law in this province is  ~a���������fear ful" "and \vomlerfitrTlTirig~~tl-at"  passeth man's understanding, and will  no doubt make remarks about - fools  rushing in where angels fear to, tread.  But we have no intention of pulling all  the complicated acts and their amendments to pieces and showing how they  ought to be put together again. That  is not our business. It is sufficient for  us to say that there are three different  Acts, that they are so complicated that  almost any point may be argued in two  or more different ways.  In 1888 ari0Act was passed embodying  the Imperial Act ��������� ,of 1862 with the  Statutes of British Columbia, but this  very Act'is not content with that good  work, but goes on to make,another Act,  so that there are virtually two Acts of  1888.  The Imperial Act of 1S62 is now generally adopted all over- the British Dominions. It may almost be regarded as  a great and important step in Imperial  Federation and one most to be desired,  that in whatever quarter of the globe  the wandering Britisher invests his  money he knows t the law under which  . hejhas invested it'.  In the Provincial Acts, for no earthly  reason, a change of nomenclature has  been adopted. President has taken the  place of Chairman, the simple, short and  expressive word call has become assessment, Director has become Trustee,  which is wrong, and most important of  all Articles of Association have become  By Laws, which is wrong also. Articles  of Association are one thing, By Laws  are another. In part II of the Act of  1890 these two totally different things  are mixed up together and an attempt  is made to make them what the last  named Act calls "controvertible" terms.  The whole matter is in a mess and it is  one that should be simple, clear and  straightforward, and it can be'done by-  letting the Imperial Act, with its most  THE   REPUBLIC AN VICTORY.  The result of the recent elections in  the United States is hailed by Republicans as heralding a return to Protection  and Prosperity. The two are taken as  a matter that goes without saying to be  synonymous terms. We sincerely wish  that as far as regards Prosperity our  neighbor's predictions may be fulfilled,  but that Prosperity if it comes will be  the result oi'.Protection we are prepared  to deny. If a return to a Protectionist  polic}' is made and Prosperity follows  in its footsteps it will be in spite of Protection, not because of it, that, ihe rosy  sun of good times shines again over the  land. The ill times which have lately  depressed the United States in common  with the rest of the world are in no wise  to be attributed to the lowering of the  tariff, for that was not effected until  long after the business depressions set  in, which commenced andwas provided  against by careful men long before  Cleveland" ascended the Presidential  chair-. This depression is the result of a  very simple cause, a cause that has been  at work all over the world and is so  plain, except to people that will not see,-  that there cannot be any argument  about it. It is simply this: The amount  of business has not fallen off, but there  are too many hands to do it. A very  simple instance will' explain this. In a  small village the local storekeeper does  a good trade. He not only makes a  living, but he manages to put by a little  every year as he ought to be able to do.  Viy and by the news of this storekeeper's  prosperity gets abroad and reaches the  ears of some other man with a little  capital on the look out for an investment. Without careful thought he goes  and opens a store in the village, with  the result that both he and his rival complain of poor times and the falling off of  business. But the business has not  fallen off, there is just as much as ever,  but it is divided between two instead of  all going to one. This simple cause  operates in vast undertakings carried on  in great cities just as much as it does in  the small village. It is the same with  manual  labour'.    There are  two  hands  "royal" performances in theatre- and  all the semi-regal pomp ^tfaat surrounds  a Colonial Governor,, are" very good fun  when you-are'in it, .but it is*poor stuff  to read about. Lord and Lady Aberdeen  seem to have left a good iinpression  everywhere. His Excellency, in spite  of having to reply to endless addresses,  has managed apparently to say something neat, new and to the point every  time, while her Ladyship has charmed  everyone by . her. gracious manners as  well as by the ^reat interest she takes in  the welfare-of her sex. Nor have her  efforts in philanthropy been confined to  women. The "Irish Village," which she  inaugurated at the World's Fair in  Chicago, netted $100,000 for the destitute  people in old Ireland.  An agitation is being started to lop  the name of the "Royal" city by clipping  of the "New,!: and letting it stand at  AVestminster. , This appears to be a  most sensible notion... .Yet"-".there is:  opposition to it. One paper puts forth  the plea that to change the name would  be to insult Her Majesty, who named  the place herself,, but we feel.certain  that if it was pointed out.to Her Goodness (jrraciousiiess that good would come  of the change she would be the first to  advise it. -We remember when the  name of the capital of Tasmania was  changed from Hobart Town to Hobart  there was the same silly opposition, but  the inhabitants rrow congratulate themselves on the change and several barrels  of ink have been saved. The subject is  a warning in naming new places. The  great colony of New South Wales  writhes under its uncouth name, which  would have been altered a few years back  if the arrogance of its then premier, Sir  Henry Parkes, had not raised the ire of all  the other great southern colonies by proposing to monopolise the word "Australia," for his. own. To come nearer  home the very frequent use of the same  name for more than one mine in the  same part,of the country will be sine to  lead to trouble in the future.  where seals are to be had and it does look  quite.close oil a small map.  The action of Sir Adolphe, Caroriv.the  Postmaster-General of Canada, is a fair  sample of the overbearing, dispositions,  of the great protectionist monopolists  whom Canada has hitherto chosen to-  reign over her. The story of the unfortunate victims of Sir Adolphe'- spite  is well known, but may be shortly repeated. In order' to bring their salaries  up to a B. C. standard they have hitherto had an extra allowance of $10 a  month, . but that is. now. some 1 four  months- in art-ear.. Driven to desperation,-  they strike, but under the advice of the  citizens of Victoria, who sympathize  with their wrongs, they return to work.  Then they are summarily suspended' by  order of the P. M. G. AVhat does he  care about a handful of poor clerks? Has  he not with his friends and allies been  stuffing his pockets for years with  .wealth wrung from a most patient  people by the cruel engine Protection*  But the plain truth of the matter is  becoming every day clearer to the voter  and it will not be long before Sir Adolphe  and his friends come to a very rude  awakening.  The journals of the Province are begin-  iug to array themselves in opposing ranks  one under the banner of Free Trade the  other under that of Protection  It will be well for everyone to remember-  that Protection is . tlie policy'' of the rich  man, the capitalist and Free Trade is  especially the policy of the poor man. "Will  the majority pf the people of Canada who  may be classed as comparatively, poor meu.  allow themselves to be over-ridden by the  few rich monopolists? That is exactly  what the newspapers that stand up for  Protection are .striving-to bring about.  The Province has been drawing attention to the numerous murders aud  crimes of violence that have recently  taken place.along the northern coast of  British Columbia and in the Islands.  The last of these is the case of a man  named Benson found dead, floating  about in an open boat, bearing evi-Je.nl  signs of violence, and the corouer's jury  have found a verdict, of murder against  some unknown persons. It is with no.  little pride that we point to-our stainless  character, not only, in the Kootenay,  but in the whole of the interior-. AVithr  out any display and with very little  effective force at their disposal the  various officers of the government maintain law and order over- a district as  large as a European Empire and with a  or twenty now for every job that  turns  heterogeneous  mass of  inhabitants,  to  up, with the result that there is great  privation, misery and poverty . everywhere. The remedy for this evidently  is not Protection, which increases the  cost of everything, making the poor man  poorer still and adding riches only to  the pockets of the wealthy. Nor will  tiukering with the tariff improve matters. The effect of the recent lowering  -of-the_taui n__w ili_no.t_hiiy.e-_ had.:trme_t o.  show itself and if a revision of the taint-  is ���������to be expected every four years or so,  with uncertainty in the meantime, it  matters very little whether Free Trade  or Protection rule the country. It will  go to ruin anyway. Nothing is worse  for the business of a country than uncertainty.  whom the credit is really due for behaving themselves, no less than to the  strong arm of the law which, though  almost in visible, is here all the time. .  ENOUGH.  It is time this dog poisoning came to  an end.    The other  day a  terrier, the  property of a  well   known gentleman,  was only just saved by speedy remedies  being promptly applied.    The dog is one  that can scarcely have offended anyoue  and it is on this point -that we beg -the  dog poisoner to reflect.   In this town, as  the ballad says, there are doubtless many  dogs,  ���������'Both mongrel, puppy, whelp and hound  And curs of low degree."  some of which at times may be and are  great nuisances. . But the remedy is not  poison. AVe know several curs in this  town who are standing reproaches to  their owners, but they never get the  poison. If a "man has a pet dog that is  a great deal to him and never annoys  anyone else, that dog is sure to be found  one morning stiff aud stark. The proper  way to be rid of a dog nuisance is to  complain at once to the master ofthe  offending cur, and if he pays no attention there, are other ways of obtaining  redress. Poison ��������� is the weapon of a  coward. Sooner or later its user will be  discovered and then we think if he is  wise he will quickly test the walking  facilities of the track to Spokane.  The accounts of the war in the east  received by the recognized channels and  those receivedby the Chinese here themselves by their own newspapers are  somewhat different. According to authorities in whom we rely the Chinese  have.had-enoiigh-oLit..-Like_somo-pon-  derous old pig attacked by a rat, at  first it only, grunted, then the rat's  attacks became so persistent, that the  pig had actually to get up, but being  too lazy or too ignorant to light it gladly  surrenders to the persistent energy of  the rat and is now begging to be allowed  to lie down again and go to sleep for  another thousand years or so. Bub  according to the Chinese newspapers,  the Japanese army has been thoroughly  routed, half the Hying remnant is  starving, and Tokyo itself has fallen into  the Celestial hands. The Chinese press  is .the oldest-in the world, the Pekin  Gazette was'- published "probably before  the Christian era. Misrepresentation of  facts is therefore not. as we supposed,  confineo to the party press of the present  day.  ClfY  OF   KASLO.  BY-LAW  No.   20.  Entitled a Bj -law to amend By-law No. 18.

C, THE MINER, NELSON, B...C, SATURDAY,-NOVEMBER l7 1894.  (1 .  CARIBOO.  Mr. Charles A. Law, writing to The  Province says: ���������' r  The developments now in progress: in  the district of Cariboo promise to open up  a new field for placer miners in the older  river channels which are now buried beneath the enormous masses of lava which  cover the upper country for many miles.  These channels are usually at a much  higher elevation than the beds of the modern streams, and wherever cut into and  worked have served to supply the present  river beds with their auriferous deposits.  In many instances the older chatuiels (il1.  so completely obscured that it has. not be.tl  possible to discover their location. Ml'  lioea T. Browne, who recently exploited  the Victoria Hydraulic properties at  Qnesnelle Forks, Cariboo district has  developed a system in California for tracing Ihese old channels, which is known as  the Forest Hill Divide System, because of  the principle first having been successfully  applied to the opening of that great property. A late report of the state mining  bureau of California refers in detail to the  work inaugurated by Mr Browne as a very  remarkable piece of engineering skill, and  explains the means by which he was enabled to trace the bed of a pliocene river  between two mines, five miles apart, and  -where the veins of the channel were 8,000  feet distant, from each other. ��������� The earlier  .drift mining on the great blue leads of  California was attended by many costly  mistakes which modern engineering science  has shown us a way to avoid ; and it is to  the accumulated knowledge and ripe experience of such authorities as Mr. Browne  and others, that we are enabled to __ap all  thfc advantages o. suck experience in -opening Up ground in Cariboo district of like  character and conditions. It is apparent  horn observations made in the field during the last season, that we are about to  enter on an era of drift mining which will  OPiry ns into localities hitherto unexplored.  There is a vast district .lying west of the  Fraser, opposite the mouth of Qnesnelle,  which ia covered by basalt for 100 miles  square ; aud it is to this particular field  that I wish to call attention with a view  to investigation. The old system of drainage of the Qnesnelle river country appears  to have crossed the Fraser where the two  now meet, aud proceeded in a westerly  direction towards the coast. It is possible  that at that time the upper Fraser river  did not then exist, and proof of this appears to have beeu furnished by the discovery of a great auriferous channel passing to the westward under a cap of basalt  100 feet thick, at an elevation of several  hundred feet above the present Fraser  system, and crossing the latter at right  angles. This channel was found by Dr.  Selwyn, director of the geological survey  many years ago ; and the conditions being  exactly the same as in California and Australia, he has always been of the opinion  that it should be investigated. Mr. Hob-  son, the well known hydraulic engineer,  has exploited much of the ground about  Qnesnelle, and his California experience  has forced him to conclusions which bear  out the theory of a westerly drainage of |  the Quesnelle river system. If it should  be proven that,, this channel continues  west-ward and does not return again to the  Fraser river, we will have proved the important fact that the vast broken plains be:  tween the Fraser river and the sea coast,  -which -are-now_c6vered_with_ lav__,_^a*_e__at.  one time been traversed by a river system  containing auriferous gravels, but now  hidden from view.     The opening up .of  Germany, states that the mining aud preparing of potassium employes 10,000 workmen, aud predicts that the time will arrive  when the XJ. S. will be-compelled to make  systematic search for it in. America. As  we know of its existence in B. C, it should  not be a difficult matter to discover the  locality, and to this end I am preparing a  memo showiDg the conditions under which  it may be found, to present to the Hon.  Colonel Baker, Minister of Mines, fco enable him to take such steps as he considers  advisable for making public the information  with a vi$w to stimulating search for the  mineral..

Saturday, November 10th, 1894.  such a field may lead to prodigous results,  as the lateral branches of- the greater  streams may extend over an immense area.  The methods employed in California to  trace out these channels and their tributaries can be directly applied to this new  field ; and it is possible that we may be able  to prove a new gold field1 of greater value  than old'Cariboo. It will be -possible in  many instances to trace the older auriferous deposits to quartz veins of a permanent  character, and thereby place the niioing of  cold quartz on a solid basis. When it is  considered that Witwatersrand district in  South Africa is only 12 miles iu length  and is producing thirty millions sterling of  ���������cold per annum, it ib not unreasonable to  assume that our gold fields will prove  equally as rich in an area so,, extensive as  that which we possess. The richest gold  fields in Australia and California were  proven to exist in old channels buried under basalt and other debris,'and we may  expect similar results from like conditions  in this country. .  Our own eminent geologist, Dr.  (jeorge  Dawson has constantly predicted that important discoveries would be made,  and  perhaps new local conditions proven as remarkable as the finding of gold in conglomerate in South Africa.   Our unexplored fields are so great that we may look forward to finds being made that will furnish  new data for geological research; and in  proof of this I mav cite an instance dislos-;  id to me   at Chicago   last  year   by   the |  chemist of the great National Lead Trust;  Company, of New York.    He informed me ;  that an American gentleman hunting m \  British Columbia three years ago, returned ;  to New York with a sample of brown earthy ;  material, given him by ��������� his Indian guide, ,  and asked the chemist to make an analysis. ���������  The stuff looked so worthless that  no  test,  was made and the gentleman went away ;  igDorant of its contents.     Later  on   the;  chemist made an analysis, out of curiosity  and was surprised to find that the  sample  contained a verv large percentage of chlorate of potash.   As this chemical  is onlv  found in Germany, and exports to  the  Tj.  S are about four million dollars per  annum, on which there is no duty, it will be  seen how important  it is  to  discover the  locslitv in which it exists in B. C.   ^  late  report'of the TJ. S.
