(From  our  oxvn correspondent.)  The soft weather, was succeeded by frost  in time to preve.it the cessation of freighting from the mines. Twenty teams ate  now in operation and more are required to  meet the output.  We have been inundated-with visitors  from Nelson, Avho have nearly all made investments iii town property and expressed  themselves well pleased with the location  and prospect-. Mr. J. Houston secured  quite pn important batch of inside property  and Messrs. Malone & Tregillus bought  four first-class lots. This brings the sales  up to over 100 lots.  . Mr. W. S. Jones, the customs officer, expects a heavy import along the new North-  port road and will erect a custom house at  an early date.  Mr. Charles Van Ness acquired a- valuable building site on Columbia Avenue  and it is uiiderstood will either erect a  hotel or buy out the interests in one of the  three now runniug.  Mr. W. R. Lee of the Northport Mill will  put in a lumber yard here and bring in his  stock o!' well seasoned stud". Mr. L. Blue's  mill here is not of sufficient capacity to  meet the trade, but he has lately imported  a new engine aud boiler. There are ver.y  fiue timber limits quite handy and a good  sized mill would have all the Avork it could  handle.  Mr. Frank Fletcher, P. L. S,, Avlien here  took note of the trend of the country,, with  a view to the survey of tram lines to the  Columbia River. . It is thought that a  saving of nearlytwo miles could be made  as compared with the road to Trail landing  and. a better grade be obtained   for the  NEW DENVER.  (From our own correspondent. J  Communication- with the outside world  has been restored now.that the snowslides  have been cleared away and the railroad  cleared of the.mud slides which covered it  in several places.  A huge slide came down at Bear Lake  which completely blocked the road for  some time while the Idaho basin was the  scene of several, one of which destroyed the  neAv cabins belonging to the Idaho. Fortunately most of the men had gon. down  the previous day so no lives Avere lost.  It is reported that.two men-from Three  Finks who went to get work at the Idaho;  have not been seen,since leaving the Concentrator and there is little doubt but that  they were caught in a slide on the road.  The R. lt. gang have been busily employed in clearing the line of mud slides of  which there were plenty between here and  Three Forks, sufficient to prevent the trains  running for some days. However all is fixed up now.  To day the fireman on the train met with  a very serious accident. He fell off his  engine and was dragged some distance before the train could be stopped. His head  was badly cut and his leg broken.  The owners of the Rueccau have just  received returns from the Omaha Smelter  of, the ore recently, sent there. One car  load of 15 tons has given the enormous  result of 1000 ounces of silver to the ton.  This, taking the value of silver at 60 cents  makes that car load worth $9000. This is  the richest car load ever shipped from the  Slocan.  In the upper tunnel of the Cumberland  the ore chute is 70 feet long showing in  places four feet of good clean ore and ocr  casionally grey copper.  shipment of ore on the Columbia Eiver.  Many visitors from Nelson are coming  in. Messrs. Bowes and St. Barbe with Dr.  Arthur came iu last Saturday and this week  Messrs. Ritchie, Bealey, Tunstall, Bigelow  and Neelauds have arrived. Mr. BigeloAv  will probably opeh a store here.        .  The'value of the ore (for customs purposes) shipped from the camp during 1894  Avas $106,000. Of this amount by-far the  largest part was sent out duriug the latter  month. Very nearly 100 tons a day is now  being shipped from the "War Eagle aud Le  Roi mines alone.  A half interest in. iii the Columbia  claim has been sold by Harry Sheran for  $4,000.   ,  AINSWORTH.  Mr. McVicor has succeeded in obtaining a lease of the concentrator at No. 1  and. will, shortly commence operations  with it. The concentrates will be shipped to Pilot Bay. Mr. Clarke is coming  in next week to complete the transfer. .  The Black Diamond has commenced  shipping ore, of which about 500 tons are  ready to go out. ''"''������������������  In conversation with an interviewer in  Vancouver Mr. M. Grady the discoverer of  the celebrated group of mines on "Four  Mile" which bear his name is reported to  have said the Alpha and Black Bear Claims,  which were. sold to Seattle capitalists 15  months ago for $70,000, were being successfully worked by the new company, and  that the former mine had already yielded  800 or 900 tons of ore which ran about 120  ozs. per ton. He and his partners had still  the freehold of five other similar claims.  Several rich finds had been made during  the past year at Four, Eight and Ten mile  creeks on Slocan Lake,, the ore containing a good deal of ruby and natural silver.  Some gold-bearing ledges, containing from  $40 to $300 to the ton, were discovered  near the foot of the lake'.' The find, however was made late in the fall and the  claims have not yet been developed.  LOCAL   NEWS.  The end of  the  week  shows a  tendent.y..lo.vai'ds a rise  in   the price  silver.'.     '  We have received a letter from an  "Ex-Sergeant Major" which pressure on  our space compels us to hold over until  next week. ���������  . Mr. and Mr.-?. .Hamilton left last Tuesday  ou a holjday trip to California, AVe hope  tosee our -popular Station Master fully restored to health on his return.  . Among the victims of the Butte explosion  was a man named W. A. Broltiiw.. It is  possible that this is Big Bill Brokaw who  was ab< ut here,s;ime little time ago.  The family of our genial sub-collector  of customs, Mr. George Johnstone, received a. very considerable addition on  Saturday hisc, 19.h inst., in the .shape of  a son, who at the' time of his birth  weighed no less than 15 lbs.  Messrs. Keefer arid Hall have been  appointed agents for The Miner at  Rossland. Copies of the paper inay be  obtained from them and they will also  take orders for subscriptions, job "work  and advertisements.  The ore is beginning to go out in good  shape. The Trail Creek Camp is rapidly  catching up to lhe Slocan and it must  be remembered that the ore from Trail  conies at present almost exclusively from  two -mines only; the Le Roi and the  War Eagle. ;  We understand that at the time of the  municipal election in Kaslo Mr. A. Chisholm was absent/and as his consent could  not tie obtained his election Avas void.  Mr. H. A. Cameron temporarily accepted  the vacant seat on the. imdeislanding  that he be allowed to retire as soon as  another suitable man turns up.  There is so'much ore travelling over the  Nelson &. Fort Sheppard line aud its continuation on the American side that it has  been decided to run separate freight and  passenger trains. On some of the trains  no less than 17 cars of ore Avere hauled.  The change will be a great boon to the  travelling pnblic, as it will avoid the wearisome and vexatious delays at Northport  and Waneta. There are rumours also of  a daily passenger train being sent through.  Some of the rumours biug this train only  to Northport while others bring it right oh  to Nelson.  The following i:'r<>7n the Vancouver  World will be welcome news to many  ahd at the same time refute the slanders,  which have been so industrously put for-  waid by habitual kickers: "W. Curtis  Sampson left by todays Atlantic express  for Nakusp. Upon his arrival there all  outstanding, claims held by. workmen  against the Nakusp <fc Slocan Railway  Co. will be,,paid. Upon his return to  this city all liabilities due by the construction company will be* disposed of."  An advertisement in another column invites all creditors to send in their  accounts.  The full Court sitting at Victoria has  upset the verdict in Croasdaile v. Hall  so far as the amount was awarded for  services rendered after the resolution  was placed on the books leaving the  matter in the hands of Mr. Winslow  Hall. The Court held that plaintiff had  in submitting to"this resolution selected  his arbiter. Mi. Croasdaile gets only  $1,300. Although the Bench felt itself  compelled to   upset the verdict of the  decide to settle their, differences by the old  fashioned "method of fisticuffs Dr. Arthur  is there to bind up their wounds.

An easy pull of seven miles from Trail  Landing on the Columbia up a well graded  road brings us to Rossland.    On   the Avay  we  pass   sieigh  after   sleigh���������20  in   all���������  bringing   down   about '6%   tons  each of  glittering ore  from  the mines.   All that  glitters   is   not   gold.    Ia   this   instance  though   there ' is   plenty  of   gold' iu  the  shining lumps of hard   rock, the  glitter  is  that of  iron  pyrites.   Each  of the sleigh  loads  is  worth in  the  neighbourhood of  "t?'200.    At the top the valley Avidens'out.  The  hills  around it rise gently  to  their  summits in broad benches...On the broadest  of these and iu tbe ceutre of a vast natural  amphitheatre  the town is situated.   The  drama of the place, howe\rei-j  is. uot being  enacted ou the level central  stage;  but in  the hills  that rise tier upon   tier around.  To the northwest rises the Red Mountain,  lifting its sharp peak 1,500 feet, above  the  town.   Through its in most recesses thread  veins of  gold. ��������� Already these  are tapped  by the Nickel Plate, the Le Roi and the  War Eagle.   The clatter of the ore falling  into the bins is audible all day long. . The  entire hill is plastered with.claims, :pu. its  very summit are the St.  Elmo, Cliff and  Mountain   View.    It   will no  longer   be  allowed to retaiu the treasures it has beeu  guarding for ages.   To the eastward of the  Red Mountain, divided from it by a "small  ravine, and due north of thectown, is the  Moute   Cristo   Mountain.     Already   rich  veins have been discovered there and in  spite of frost the miner is busy there too.  Still   further eastward is   the   Columbia  Mountain.    Over the west shoulder of the  Jued Mountain rises the Spokane Mountain  and between the two runs Sheep Creek,  down which Avinds the road  to Northport  and up which will'come the Red Mountain  Railway.   In the valley of Sheep Creek is  the I. X. L., from, which very rich specimens of free milling quartz Avere  brought.  Further again to the w.st and almost south  of Rossland are the.O. K., Liilie May aud  other claims.    In fact the only side oh  which there are none is' the southeast; in  which the .valley falls away to the Columbia/   ..   -   --���������-    .-:..������������������--������������������ ;������������������������������������- -~.���������.:.���������.."���������. ���������  ���������The site of the town has certainly been  Avell chosen. It is in the very midst of the.  mines, lt is level. The timber is light.  No sombre forest of dark piues obscures  the sun, no frowuiug'hili shuts out the day.  From early morning till dewy eve the sun  pours down unit. The township is "well  laid out Avith broad stieets and Jots of '.0 |  by 100 feet. The name boards and stakes i  are not necessary to mark out the streets  as the principal of these are already well  defined by rows of buildings Avhich are  being added to every day. There are three  hotels, two stores, a butcher's shop, restaurant, two barbers, a bootmakers and  sundry others. Her Majesty's Customs  have established an officer, and. a postmaster has been appointed and will be duly  invested with all official requisites as soon as  -the inspector-from-V-ictoiia ciui-find-time-to-  attend to the Avants of this corner of his  dominion. It is a little difficult to gauge  the population as many of the men are in  the surrounding miues and it must be  remembered that a ceusus of today is no  criterion of the population tomorrow.  Every day people are coming iu. If we  say that on this _.9th day of January in the  year of our Lord 1895 there are 300 people  iu the.camp we are probably not far off the  mark. In two. four or six months it will  be interesting to note how this will be increased to possibly as many thousands.'  Gold. is the cry today and if a gold camp  like this cannot lure men from the fading  attractions of the surrounding silver camps  nothing will.  Of the mines generally it is not our present intention to speak at large. Our  readers have been kept from week to week  fully informed by our -correspondent of all  that is worth reporting in this direction.  At present the snow does not permit a  general inspection of all the claims to be  easily made.. The only two mines at present shipping are the Le Roi and the Wat-  Eagle, but others will quickly follow suit,  notably the Nickel Plate. This latter has  a shaft down some 70 feet and on the day  of our visit had about 12 tons of the richest  ore in camp on the bank. The Le Roi and  the War Eagle are just above the Nickel  ! Plate. Two greater contrasts in mining  methods Avould be hard to find. At the Le  Roi you enter a large building in which the  first objects that strike you are two huge  boilers and further on you come to hoisting  engines, pumps, air compressors and  the  nel  graded  so  as  tp.; allow  the  Avater to.  run off itself;'   Perfect  ventilation  is provided by means of an old   shaft long ago  abandoned as an  approach and now  used  ouly to aid the natural  (iow of  pure air..  Tho tunnel iu the War Eagle cuts the vein  at right angles and drifts .proceed  from  it  ou flithcr hand and sloping is in full opera- ���������  tion.   The lode here lies between  well de- '  fined walls aud is fully four and a half feet .'  in   thickness.     Another   tunnel   112 feet  below the first is  being rapidly driven  iii' '  and it has already cub another veiu   even-'  richer than theone it was designed to meet.''  Ou   the   surface cross stripping has disclosed the main  lode over a distance, of '  500 feet and here'it Avideus in some places .  to 20 feet and maintains an average breadth '  of seven feet.  .The ore, like that of most of the camp,,  is a pyritic iron carrying gold ana  copper.  It lies embedded  iu  walls' of syenite, of  which the "country rock" is composed. Its  value   naturally  varies.    Theie are large'  deposits of low grade stuff which  will not'  pay   for shipment,  but  which  will vield  handsome  returns   if   reduction   facilities '  can be obtained near at hand.    And  there  is ere that give3 returns of  nearly  $200 in  gold per ton.   The War Eagle ore,0of which'  from 40 to 50 tons are now  being shipped  daily, is worth about $45  per ton.   The !  expenses  at present   of shippiug are   as-  follows per ton:   Mining,  $.; freight to:  Landing by sleigh, $2.25.   Trail to \  Trail  smelter and smelting, $12.50; total $17.75.  lhe profit is evideut.  But while'this profit is splendid mine'  owners naturally wish for more and low  grade owners who now get none  want to  join in the business.   Therefore all  attention is directed to the. proposed railway  which is projected to connect the mines.  with Northport.   There are also rumours  in the air that the C. P. R. is not going to  allow so many tons of rich freight tp 'slip ',-  through its hauds and British sentiment'.  desires to   see   its own  ores retained in -  British dominions.    It is  possible there-'  fore that seutiment and interest for once .  joining hands a line may be constructed to  some point on the Columbia River opposite  Sproat's Landing,   where   a smelter or a  matting plant may be established. , This is  ouly conjecture, but it "seems reasonable.' '  PROVINCIAL NEWS.  Mr. John. Teague has  been reelected ���������  as mayor of Victoria.  , Sittings-of the Exchequer court will  be held at Victoria, on September 0 and  at Vancouver on September 12.  The health inspector at Vancouver says  that Chinatown is a*menace to the health  of the city.  A freight train was ditched at Port  Haney on Tuesday week by a mud slide,  but fortunately, no one was injured.  Louis Victor was hanged at New Westminister last week for the murder of Peter  an Indian policeman at Cheam on 18th,  Sept. last.  A railway accident occurred last week  on the C. P. R. between Notch Hill and  Shuswap. Some cars of a west bound  freight train fell through a trestle fiftj-"  feet, into a ravine below. Brakesman  Frisken and Conductor Harris were severely- i n j uredr ��������� ������������������_ __-^_  The inquest oh the body of Heinrich  ZechoAV, claimant to an estate in Seattle  and vicinity, valued at $2,000,000, ended  with a verdict of wilful murder against  some person or persons unknown. The  body was found with a deep stab in the  neck under a wharf on New Year's eve.  In a short time the construction of the  new post office building and custom house  to be erected by the Dominion government  in Victoria will be commenced. Mr. Fred  Toms, the contractor for the work, and  Mr. G. J. Wilson, his foreman, have arrived from Ottawa, and steps will be. taken  to proceed as soon as possible "with the  contract.  George Frederick Ashford, the fiend  .who murdered his wife, and infant child  and attempted to murder.another child,  died in Westminster jail, thus escaping  the galloAAS. Before his capture Ashford  attempted suicide . by shooting,", and  though at the time it Avas thought he  had suffered no serious injury, it was  found later his skull was fractured. The  man Avas unconscious for the last few  days, so no statement was made, and  thus probably, the history of his life will  never be known.  CHURCH NOTICES.  Sunday, 26th Januaby, 1895.  .

TRADE   UNIONISM.  Editor of the Mixer:  Sin,���������I am glad you have, taken .ip the  subect of Trades TJnibnishi, as it is'well'  that every great public'question should  be "set'in alllighfV'by many itiiucl.-..'' On  some points I quite agree wiih you; ou  others'I am inclined to. dissent. I agree"  ���������with".you iii'thinking that a strike, is the  ���������clumsiest possible way of settling iiidus:_'  trial disputes and. that no. self-constituted  body of men' should, be allowed to coerce,  their fellow men, But" when you say that  the Conciliation Act, passed last session!  solves the diifiiciilty, I think you, take a  ban'guine view of the situation. The Act  only comes, into effect where both parties  agree to arbitrate. But, unfortunately,'the  principal strikes, haA-e always arisen where  one or both of the parties refused to arbi-.  trate." Appointing an arbitrator'is ii mete  detail: getting" the parties to submit to"  arbitration, is one of the hardest things in  the" world'.  Strikes will never cease until arbitration  is made compulsory, instead of voluntary.  Perhaps you will say that such a thing  w.ould be a A-iolation of individual liberty  So it would; aud a. most propm- violation. If a labour dispute only affected.  the men engaged in it. Ave might do well to  let. the partie.'fight it out to their hearts',  content. But as a matter of fact it throws.  the whole social system into a chaotic state.  The,, greatest strike ever known was the  English con. miner's strike of. ISG/j. It  las ted, five months, aud the number of men  engaged in it went, into the hundreds! of  thousands. And what was the consequence  to'the public iu general? The iron \vprks  ofthe Northern Counties aud the Black-  Country were all closed down for, want of'  cbai. The cot toii mills of Lancashire cea's-.  ed to hum. Hard-working men were begging for bread, because of a dispute for  which they cared nothing, end from which  they could gain no'liii!.:.' Societies Avere  formed to.feed women a> d children hundreds !of'miles away from the centres of dispute. Day after day merchants hitherto  prosperous weiitinto lhe Bankruptcy Courts.  And; all because there avhs.' no means of  forcing, a hundred obstinate mine owners  and a few hundred thousand obstinate  miners' to behave like reasonable men.  A strike in themines here would .hot have  such a far reaching effect a^the on:? f have  referred to. But it would he n, fceiioiis  matter for ni any people who had lio direct  interest in it. 'Merchants, hotel;keepers,  doctors, and others, who have come here to  make a living, aud who a'e quite indispensable to miners and mine-owners, would  be grievously and unjustly injured. We  are. all. members, one of another. Without  the co-operation of others, the life of each  of us would be "solitary, poor, nasty, brut-,  ia[h, and short," as ii great English Avriter  remarked. This being so, it is intolerable  that any group of rrien','Avhether employers  or. labourers, should be allowed to disorganize the business, of the community.  The New Zealand Government has recognized, this, and is about to pass a measure  making,arbitration compulsory. <, The Government of.'this" proA-ince. has lately sent  round circulars to prominent business nieh.  aud to the various Trades Unions, asking  their.opinions on this subject; and there  is.every reason to hope that British Columbia will soon be an example to the world  in.this matter.  But although Ave are agreed that, strikes  a\e mischievous, and should,give place to  arbitration, I think you'are' w;roug iii. believing that such a ic-fonn would'abolish  ttie heed for Trades Unions.', Suppose you.  have a hundred thousand men' in one dis-;  _t]!l^j__^Ld_e_p_gage^__Ln__on.e_iDdustry.l_Sup--  pose a dispute arises -betAveen them and  their employers. Let them arbitrate" by all  means, but-who'is to set the machinery of  arbitration in motion? The first thing  would be to try and arrange the matter  amicably with the employer. Area hundred thousand men to go and. interview tlie  employer? The next thing would, be.to  desmand an arbitration.

The application of the directors of this  (.np.iny, for an extension ofthe time'in  uch to cointnencetheir, line, has been,  fused by the  Provincial House.   The.  Ite, we are informed, was a close one,  Les 12,  noes 13.   The  applicants also  [sired po.\;.er,toi build- a narrow  gauge  |e, but this.part of their request, was.  xirted against by the committee to  Ihich the Bill   was submitted   in  the  Vial   course   before  coining   iuto   the  wse itself.   The names of tin* 13 legis-;  tors who voted against the Bill  have  |>t, reached us, but Aye think that w.h'p-  rer they were they were ill advised  in  Iking the action they did.   The pro-  [oters of the line askedfbr no guarantee  ' principal or: iuterest.    They  looked  sly to the usual land: grant and what  diic they might secure to recompense  Jem for their outlay, and. we believe  fiafc the establishment of the line"would  tve well re-imbursed the province for  [anting it these domains. . We  under-  |ind that Mr. .Cok'uix  wanted  an  fex-  Insion of only a month or two in which  correct or amend  the surveys ofthe  fie, which the snow at present,  renders  Ltreniely difficult.    In viewqft.he large  lid increasing output of the Rossland  Lines it is only reasonable to suppose.  Ut the Red Mountain  Raihvay  Avould  lot   waste   more   time   than could   be  lelped in putting itself into a position.  l>   handle   the   profitable   traffic   n^w  fering.   The line Avill probably now "be  linnnenceil and got Avell under Aveigh  fy the time its charter would otherwise  ixpire, viz.: the 16th April.    We believe  Hiat.the  more  railways "there  are,  in  tioderatioiT71lie be tteTf ol"~~t!lie^ou ntryT  ^e certainly do,not wish to see.British  poluinbia ore going out to be smelted in  h the United States, cAvhere every ton  pis to pay-somewhere about $5 for treat-  lii-iit and  $7   for  freight.    We  would  fatheivsee. the cost of treatment: spent  un'ong our own people and the cost of  reight:-saved    to    the    mine    owners.  re believe that the best Avay to secure  lese advantages Avould be to   build  the  bed    Mountain    Railway.      That,   line  lould act us an incentive to the C. P. R.  Ir other corporation to build  in' opposi-  fcon to it on this side, so that the miners  Lnd the province.avouIc! hav.e, the adyan-  jage of^coinpetition for their freights.  We publish in another column a letter  UmMB,, Coiibin correcting the state-  |ine,nts.iii.qiir; issue nt'.the 5th inst. as to  khe feeling between himself and tlie C.  ^ K.. Company. We* are glad-to be  prrected iii this matter and to Hud that  [houglii ,the lied.-Mountain Railway"  would apparently deprive the steamboat,  Company of a most profitable sljce of its  business it,and.the promoter of the rail-  [way are on good terms.   .  Since writing the above Ave learn that  [a. companyis already projected to con-  131 met ii line from "a point at or near"  )the "Trail Creek mines to some point as  [near,as.practicable to the junction of  [Trail C.re.ek and the Columbia River.'!  *VAn application with this, object is to,be  inade to the Dominion Parliament at its  f next session.  A-, GREAT DISCOVERY.  In our parliamentary report for the-  ^I8th inst. it-will-He. seen.' that the Ques-  ' nelle Prospecting Bill Avas read a second  [time. The bare announcement requires  [explanation, and.this explanation takes  \\xs back thousands of years to a time, "so  long ago that even the Fraser River  itself,-"Father of W;ater;s," did not exist.  A glance at a map; will shoAV that the  course of the Qnesnelle River, is mainly-  westerly and that it meets (and falls into)  at right angles the Fraser River,, which  here, flows southwards. The Quesnelle  River and; its branches are. highly aurir  ferous, and. it- is,, on themr mainly .that  most of the great Cariboo discoveries  have been made. Scientific geologists  visiting gQuewelle,. Mouth have, carried-  their investigations across the Fraser  River, opposite to the point at which  the Quesnelle now runs into it. .Their,  researches so far a,s they have gone.seejn  to indicate, that in bygqhe tini.es,,.so.re!?,  mote that they cannot be measured as Ave  measure time, the valley of the Fraser  did no-t exist and thatthe waters of;.the.  Quesnelle continued on their way Avest-  vvard to the sea. Yolcariic and: glacial  changes afterwards took place, cutting  off the Quesnelle channel at this.point  and opening up a new route for its  waters and those which were at this  time, brought down from the north, by  the course known.at the present day as,  the Fraser galley. Vast beds, of lava  overlay the coup try through which, under this supposition, the Quesnelle once  wandered, and it, is held that beneath,  this crust tlie ancient river, bed still  exists.with, its, treasures;.of, gold dust.  Who.has nqtr..dreamed, of. vybat .would  happen if some stream, say the Pend d'  Oreille, could be di\-erted and its bed laid  bare. What stor.es of gold, would.. npt, be  discovered in the crevices of. its rocky  bottom? Here in Cariboo the Avaters of;  a rive.;, famous.before, all rivers., fpr,. it_i������  golden treasures, have been diverted.  Only their place is taken by hundreds  of feet of rock and earth.. But roclc. apd  earth yield; up. their secrets before the.  miner's industry, while water still baffles  'him. But the task of probing into these  old-Avorld secrets is precarious and e'x-  pensive. A man, however, in the person-.  of Charles F.

The. li.ll also stipulates, that the  prospector shall in each year during the  currency ofthe license expend not less  than $5,000 in.prospecting and exploring;  and in the event of his diseoA'ery and  locating the river bed he shall be en titled,  to a lease for a period1 of twenty years  for tho purpose of extracting gold.  The. riches), finds in the celebrated  Ballarat gold field in Australia have been  made in just,such another ancient river  bed, which has noAv been traced for miles  at a depth of 2,000 feet below the present,  surface, and it is from its long hidden  sands that the giant Australian nuggets  h7i:ve~l)^im"bfoTigh"t~trriigli"t.  her.

No sooner  have, we done with a lunatic asylum scandal  ofthe first order, and fully equipped with  every   horror,   than   the   Nanaimo   affair  comes into full blaze.   Here is the story as  it is alleged.   Remember the "alleged" as it  has not yet been.proved.   Thecity- wanted  a police.magistrate, but hesitated wheii it  opine to tbe question of paying him $1000  per a_.iinin.    But the. patriotic  Mr. Planta  stepped into the breach.   "I" said he '--will  take the job.   I will be your magistrate,  and Avilltake.as uiy salary the fiue. paid  iri the police court andmbreover I Avill feed  tbe prisoners and relieve the corporation  of some other little expenses."   What  a  splendid offer.   Naturally it was at once  accepted and. Mr. Plauta.. became, the Sa  trap of Nanaimo.'

At last messengers were  sent and a search was commenced,  but no  Mr. !Plauta could; be. found.

General Wolseley has  always evinced great iuterest in this lodge,  which was formed from members of the  expeditionary force which came here in  1869 under his command. Last year the  members showed their appreciation of this  kind interest by sending the famous soldier  a group portrait of the survivors of the ex-,  pedition now members of Prince Rupert's  lodge. Among the veterans in this group  were Colonel McMillan, George Black,  Herbert Swinford, Chas. N. Bell, R. J.  Jones, Judge Walker, Capt. Doidge and  .Major D. H.Nash. Sir Garnet writes the  lod-je a most interesting letter, wishing it  continued success and expressed his unabated interest and faith in Manitoba.  Southern Division, District of  West Kootenay.

NOBLE INVALIDS-  While the Duke of Argyll was addressing  a political meeting in Glasgow he suddenly became pale, his voice sank to a  whisper, and he reeled and fell, insensible  into the arms of Lord Kelvin, one of the  bystanders. The audience became greatly  excited. The Duke shortly re-opened his  eyes, gazed vacantly around and slowly recovered consciousness. J He - then asked  friends to telegraph for his son, the Marquis of Lorhe, his daughter, Lady Francis,  was present. The Duke.was removed to  Lord Kelvin's residence on a stretcher and  three physicians were summoned to attend  him. The physicians agreed that the  Duke's condition was critical, and they  decided to remain with him during the  night. At midnight Dr. Anderson said  tnat the Duke had suffered an attack of  syncope, but there had been no return of  the faintness. The doctors had great difficulty in restoring the patient's temperature.  The Duke has since announced his retirement from public life and is reported  weaker and more feverish.
