( From our own correipondenl.)  The Alberta and British Columbia Exploration Company have completed their  idyke as far as the Indian camp on west-  side of Kootenay River (below Gout  River landing) a distance' of-over ten  miles from the commencement at boundary line. The company have at present,  upwards of litly men getting out. cord-  wood for the dredges. Between two and  three thousand cords will be .got out before snow goes of. The price paid is in  the. neighborhood,of..4.1 ..X) per coid delivered on right of way or bank of river.  This gives quite a lot of work to. people  in the valley for hauling, as.the wood is  in some instances a long way .frou'i the  ri v e r. .Th e engineers and ot here mpl oyes  of the company are expected in about.  the end of February,, and after some  alterations in machinery ; have been  effected they will start, right in to..dig.  The dredge "Calgary" has soil]'---especially deep digging to do along the international ���������iboundary    line, this    < oming  season.    The company of Minneapolis capit n 1 ists  who purchased the President..-group of  claims on Duck Creek and the Lizard  and Badger adjoining are busy with a  small  force of  men  erecting  buildings  ��������� and making ready generally ,for. .extensive development of the: properties  in the spring.    It is believed  they  have  ���������a good thing.- * There is some talk of the  company erecting a concentrator to treat  the pre from the Lizard which has an  exceptionally fine showing of galena.  j...Other properties in the Goat River  camp will bo  considerably developed,, in  .the spring..

KASLO.  (From our own correspondent.)  For the past week it has done, nothing  but rain, and rain heavily too. Hardly  ever before has such a steady downpour  been know at this time of tlie year. As  a consequence almost every known slide  iii the country is down. Seven snow  slides.came down: on the waggon road  Thursday be.tweeri-.10 and lomile.houses,  and three more between 15 mile and  Gorman, Wests.. The stage from Three  Forks Thursday had a narrow escape,  Slaving barely got through a place on  t he road when a slide covered it. Almost  immediately afterwards they were  brought to a 'sudden stop by another  slide in front and so became, with several  other teams, blockaded. Scott &.Car-  scadden, the stage owners, have sent up  ten men to dig through the slides and-  Capt. Fifzslubbs '.has hired as many  more. The road will be clear in about'  five clays, but not before.  The saddest event in connection with  the coining down of the snow slides is  the death of J. MacMillan of the Eureka;  He and Jack Moore were crossing .the  slide which killed him on the way from  the cabin to the tunnel of their property,  when the slide gave with their -weight.  It was but a'small slide.'.only about, three  feet deep.and* .rolling 60 feet'.riiever.the  less it..was large enough for.-;its .fatal  work, which it did too well. When'the  slide staited the part, where the., men  we're {-seemed to.subside and instantly  they were covered and' carried along in  the heart of the silent, snowy sepulchre.  For three hours they lay in the, snow.  They would both have.: been- killed shut  -thatr-Moore ha'dorie-ii.'ind'let'.'uncovered  which by dint of wriggiingand loosening  gave him sufficient,! air ,to come ito :him-  self and. revive..''Moore- now' began . to  dig himself but;, succeeded .ind looking  .round .saw-.MacMiUaiiJs snovvshoes above  the ,s:iow. 1 Mechanically, as Mooresays,  he commenced-to dig MacMillailiout, but  when he got.him he was.dead.  " Poor -Mac-MilIan,- it is thought, was  killed quickly, as the. snowshoes acted  like biniys and kept hkn head down all  the time. His body was brought in  Saturday and has lieen embalmed for  sending to fond and sorrowing friends  in.the East, who. the poor fellow just  dead intended to visit in the very near  future'.

The heavy thaw which set in last week  was suddenly arrested, by a sharp frost  which set in on Monday." The streets of  the town were converted into sheets of j  glistening ice and where they were on the  slope gave pedestrians many" a fall. Matters were, rendered i3till worse by a fall oi!  snow ou Thursday and falls became very  numerous.  .A man named King was brought to  the hospital on Tuesday from Trail Ci eek.  He has been injured oy a falling tree  which struck him on the head, and he is  paralyzed from the waist down. The  poor fellow was lying in the depot at  Northport from Saturday morning until  Monday waiting for the delayed train.  He died shortly after reaching the hospital. ��������� '  A bill of considerable importauce to  many of the inhabitants of this district  has been introduced into the Provincial  House by Mr. Brack-11. One of its provisions forbids, the einployiuentof Aliens  on public works. Our American cousins  therefore who dwell amongst us would  not be eligible for .inployuient on the  roads, tiails, and other works caniecl  out by the government.  The train which should have arrived  from Spokane last Saturday evening did  not reach Nelson until Tuesday morning  at one o'clock. The delay was owing to  the heavy thaw then faking place. This  (haw was-taken advantage of by the  Seven Devils to send down a slide. i"n the j  way of thetrain: ��������� The Beaver Canvon |  hastened to follow suit, bub being a little !  late,had only time to delay the train -for j  three or four hours before Jack Frost |  lied the hills up again.

This is paiticuhu'ly true in regard to the iSakusp Slocan raihvay, wbiJi  now gives a fresh outlet to the ore from  the fabulously r:ch mining region of the  Slocau. Although but recently completed,  the line is already fully taxed to carry for  ���������shipment to the smelters, the silver ores  ' now being taken ont in large quantities  from the mines, of the district. Another  important piece of railway completed iu  West Kooteuay is the link on the kelson  & Fort Sheppard, which connects Five  Mile Point with tho Columbia & Kootenay  railw.ay at Nelson.. The Revelstoke & Arrow Lake Rail way is now in operation as  far as Wigwam, on the Columbia river.  where connection is made with the steamers running on Arrow lake. This gives a  direct route by rail aud water betweeu  Revelstoke, on the C. P. R., and jSal.n.p,  the terminus of the Nakusp & Sloca.i.  Trains have for the past six weeks been  running as far a*" Wigwam. Cornihg nearer  home* the Victoria & Sidney railway has  beeu completed now for a number of months  and trains have been running over it all  summer. The roadbed is a model piece of  woik, smooth, _venandbplend.lv ballasted.  NEW APPLICATIONS.  Acting on the report of Inspector C-ui-  stantine" of the Northwest Mounted Police.  the Dominion government a=few week?, ago  sent Mr. William Ogilvie to survey a route  into the Yukon country by way of theTaku  river. The possibilites of the trade . with  the Yukon miuing country have already.  led to application to the Dominiou government for a charter to buiid a railway from  theTaku river iu this province to Lake  Teslin iu the Yukon.  There are at the present session of the  provincial legislature a number of applications for power to build new line... The  Columbia & Kootenay Railway and Navigation Company are asking to revive the  charter for a branch from their main Hue  to, run north through the Slocan uonutry  and connect with the Nakusp & Slocan���������  coustructiou to commence in two years and  to be completed in five.  ��������� Incorporation is also sought for a railway to run from the uortheas: arm "up  Arrow lake to Trout lake, AVest lv..oi.einiy,  and for another to ran from Kaslo to the  head of Bear creek.  The Bnrrard Iulet & Eraser Valley railway is*asking to extend the time for construction to five years.  The Red Mountain railway, which has  a charter to build from the international  boundary line at the right fork of Sheep  creek to Red mountain and Trail creek  mines,asks to be allowed to change, the.  guage from standard to narrow aud that  the time to commeuce construction be extended till April, 1897, completion. to be.  two years later.

Gray, chairman, has.  been presented, to the legislature by Hon.  Col. Baker. This contains some, iuterest-  ing'passages, including the.following:���������  "The successful issue arising from, the  provincial board of conciliation in the case  of the stone cutter's strike during the past  summer gives the legislature cause for congratulation aud arbitration act of last session; but fortuitous as was the outcome of  the said strike, the intervention of the  board of conciliation was. well nigh frus-  -���������"trated'-thfough-the-difliculty-experienced"  in persuading the disputants to name conciliators. And in the case of., the recent  strike of the employes of a sawmill at Vancouver ,jthe proffered services of-the board of  conciliation and arbitration were not availed of on account of one of the parties to  the dispute having refused  to name con-  . ciliators.  " "It is a noticeable feature in the experience "of the commission, as showing the  moderateness of the views of the .employes-  reporting, and-their accord with the views  of the most careful students" of the labor  question, that only one per cent, of those  represented by the reports submitted advocate arbitration with compulsory awards  as tlie solution of strikes and lock-outs,  while the almost unanimous expression is  in favor of a compulsory bringing together,  by councils of conciliation and arbitration,  ."in oider that.'questions in dispute may  be  ventilated, but without enforceable awu.ds.  "It may perhaps be deemed advisable  that the legislature should carry out iuto  effect the very general suggestions made to  the commission, and^enact legislation in the  "direction of ensuring a compulsory bringing together for eliciting evidence,  with  the view of settlement of dispute, either by.  amicable arraugetnent or through force of  public opinion.  "Concurrent with the -inquiries of   the  . provincial" labor commission an exhaustive  investigation arising from the recent strikes  at Pullman and elsewhere (the most extensive in the annals of trade disputes) was  instituted by the government of the United  States; and as the matters treated upon by  the United .States commission report, which  has recently been submitted:��������� ., '   ,  "The commission suggests the consideration by the Btates of the adoption of some  : system of conciliation and arbitration like  that in use in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. That system might be. enforced  by additional provisions giving- the board  of abitration more power to investigate all  strikes whether requested to do so or not."  -    She���������Is kissing proper ?  -.- He���������Let's put our heads together and  consider.���������Exchange.

If these resources come only  Idf way up to the rosy  pictures  drawn  them there will be a boom as cerlain-  as the flowers of spring  that  will be  Is heralds.  [The   lirst   thing   to  look  forward   to  rhen the frost leaves us, probably about  lie.  beginning  of   March,   will   be,  the  jnimencement of work by  the Nelson  llydraulic   Mining   Go.    at   Forty-nine  I'reek.

Hydraulic  [Mining Co.   on  the  Pend d'Oreille  will1  [be Varrowly scrutinized  as   well as the  [development of. placer ground  recently  [discovered   on   the  south side, of   that  Liver.    But perhaps by Nelson  itself the  [greatest interest"of all will  be taken  in  Lthe Bay of Hope, a claim on Seven Mile  rCreek, where a reef of great size bearing  i&tfSxv grade free milling, ore*is reputed  1 to have been discovered.   If this ledge  justifies its owners' description of it, and  I-does not melt away with, the snow .by  ".which it is at present covered, it will be  one of the best known gold-mines in the  world.    It is low down,   near  the river  and is said to carry $12 iu gold.    That is  fifteen pennyweights with gold at $16  an ounce.    There is. a celebrated mine  ���������working., today   in   New   Zealand,   the  shares of which are readily bought in  1 London at a premium of 375 to 100 per  cent, and which works pre giving only  two and a half ".pennyweights or about  $2 per ton.   Nor is it likely that the Ray  of  Hope contains   the only deposit of  mineral in that quarter.   So that it .is  possible that an entirely new field may  be opened in that direction.  We have hitherto spoken of propositions which in the markets of the world  rank only as prospects. What of Trail  Creek? This camp'has shipped 1,500  tons of ore since June last and the War  Eagle, mine has now contracted to deliver for transport. 3,000 tons of ore by  the first of April. That ore is netting to  its owners something in the neighbourhood of $30 per ten. Besides the War  Eagle, the Le Roi, the Josie, the O. K.,  the I.X.L and the Nickel Plate have  practically arrived at the dignity of  shipping propositions. The shipping  facilities at present ate clumsy und costly, but there is little doubt that this  camp will shortly have the benefit of the  best and cheapest transport. The  enormous deposits of ore it contains are  becoming every day better known and  new ones are being found. The barber  in the new townsite of Rossland digs a  hole in the street opposite his door to  erect his gaudy pole, and lol he strikes  gold. If there are any old timers here  who remember Ballaarat in its palmy  first days their minds must wander back  and the'snow of Kootenay for the time  becomes tlie. golden sand of the burning  Australian desert.  "Hope springs eternal" in the human  heart and we believe that we have shown  that llie hope we have for' a prosperous  futuie is a house builded partly up a  (quartz) rock and partly on sand, but the  grains of that sand are Gold.  result of these intrigues was the deposition of the reigning sovereign and. the  establishment of a republic. . There  seems to he now a good deal of feeling  in favor of the restoration of the .monarchy. Why not go in and out like the  parliamentary parties of other nations.  It would bean interesting experiment  and could hurt no one, not even the  Hawaiians.  BARRED.  We regret to say that the anticipation  of a speedy removal of the har placed on  the entry of the Nelson and Fort Sheppard line to the town of Nelson are premature. Tlie position of affairs as they,  stand at. present is this: The C. P. R.  has a right of way along the entire  water front of the town and at present  they decline entirely to listen to any  proposals from "Mr. CoKDlN. That  gentleman recently proposed to the.C.  P. R. Id join lines iu a central position  and there erect a substantial depot that  should be a credit to the town and arrange a yard for mutual traffic. The C.  P. It. authorities refused to listen to this  suggestion. Mr. Coitms. will not make  it again,. Only last week Mb. Corbin  had an interview in Victoria with the  Premier, Col. Baker, and Mr. Abbott,  the representation of the C..P. B. in B.  C. The Premier suggested that an  arrangement should be come to then and  there. Mil. Corbin assertedchis willingness to agree to any reasonable proposition, if Mr. Abbott was in a position to  make, final arrangements on behalf of  his company. This, however, he could  hot do without, referring to Silt William  Van Horne. That gentleman, however, at latest advices is enjoying his  leisure in the south of France. There  doubtless he hopes by means of his new title to worm himself into thecharmedcircle  of aristocrats who haunt Nice, Men tone,  Monte Carlo. and'!.other. fashionable  re-  Nelson was very thankful to Mr. Cor  bin for building his railway to her doors.  But the advantage is probably not  wholly on the side of the town. Mr.  Corbin builds roads neither for fun nor  charity. He gets something out of it.  Pie has his responsibilities therefore to  the people who put,him in the position  to get that something, and of these  people those who use the road have the  right to the firstconsideration. To them  it is.due. to make every possible endeavor  to deliver them at their journeys end  punctually. The delay to the train that  ought to have arrived here this day-  week was not unavoidable. There was  an engine on this side of the slide at  Marcus and plenty of box cars in which,  the passengers would rather have finished their journey than been kept at Marcus. A transfer should have been made.  Again when the obstruction at Marcus  was removed there was no excuse for  finding- further slides on the Beaver.  They had evidently been down some  tithe as they were frozen solid and lhe  idle engitie on this side might well have  been employed prospecting for these  and clearing them away. _STo one blames  the employes. No- men could work  harder or mora willingly. Conductor,  driver; . trainmen, section men and all  worked night and day with a will to get  that train through. The fault is not  theirs.   It is the organization.  YES! winter has commenced and the SKATES are  - going fast: But don't you know that1 you need  something beside outdoor amusement���������?��������� There is no  time like winter for practicing on some instrument. We have  Banjos, Guitars, Violins and-all the latest music, beside Pianos  ah Organs and : ������  ANYTHING IN THE WAY OF NEWSPAPERS  AND NEW NOVELS. \m   We will deliver your news at your door if' you want it regularly.  Oh! yes, we forgot to say that we have a big stock of sewing  machine needles and oil.  There is something not quite straight  with the mails yet. "A parcel from England posted on the lOih December reached us on the 16th January,. Of course it  is nice"to have Christmas spread out.all  over the month of January and to have  letters and packages from friends at a  distance dropping in promiscuously well  on into February. But the primary use  of the mails is" for .the,.transaction of  business, and delays that are of no importance in matters of pleasure become  very serious indeed when they hamper  the affairs of trade and commerce. And  there is no excuse for it. All these  vexatious delays are entirely owing to  the rotten organization of the Canadian  post office.  sorts at this time of year. When the  fact finally asserts itself that though .the  questionable society of the gaming table  welcomes him and his napoleons the real  aristocrats will have none of him in spite  of his new veneer and his grip on Cana-'  da, he may then return to attend to  affairs ou this'side of the Atlantic. The  fact remains therefore that we are under  the grip of tho great Oetupus of Canada  and there is no hope "of our having our  just wants satisfied until his high and  mighty lordship deigns to turn his eyes  in our direction, and possibly not then.  It is ii hardship on the people of Nelson and alsp'ou Mr. Cokbin, who has  done all that he can in our behalf, The  C. P. It. has no right to play the dog in  the manger. If it does not use its rights  itself ic should resign them to others who  will use them. At any rate the people  of Nelson should not be barred of their  just pi ivileges by the selfish greed of the  C. P. R.

Uut when it  comes to real drill aud real hard work it is  more than he bargained ' for. , As long as  our volunteer is allowed to strut as,he  pleases and show off his uniform soldiering  is.all very well, butwheu it comes to stern,  hardworking duly itis quite another thing.  Ku.wiug this tlie govei_jine..'-,-ihbiild never  have selected a crack.officer from--one of  the smartest regiments in the world to drill  Tommy Snooks and his mates.  Mr. Keir Hardie, one of the "labour  leaders" in England and a mem bet- of  Parliament, in a letter to a paper says:  "If fifty "men each iii Glascow' Liverpool,  Manchester, Leeds and London  entered  the shop and helped themselves and  kept this game going something would  happen." We think he is right. Something would certainly happen. "Fifty  men each" would find themselves speedily lodged in the gaols of those respective  towns and all ther absolute necessities  would be provided for them for some  time to come. Mr. -Hatdie then adds:  "If I were in their position 1 would do  this andporhaps something worse." How  Mr. Hardie i econciles this advice with  the oath he took on entering parliament  of loyalty to his queen and country and  the laws we do not know. It is just as  well perhaps that these reformers should  sometimes speak out. Then we know-  that: we have not to deal with well  meaning.but mistaken philanthropists,  but, with', downright blackguards, who  are ten times worse than the ordinary  crimiiial because they make use of their  influence over the uneducated classes to  lead-them on to crime for which they  must eventually pay the penalty. The  use of the lash certainly ought not to be  confined only to those who commit bodily assaults.       -  A number of. Americans returning  from a-trip to Europe arrived in New.  ���������York Harbour on Thanksgiving day'.  after G p.m. The customs officials had  left and the unfortunate passengers were  compelled to spend that night, of all  nights, on board the ship. They made  a strong protest to the Department and  now in all probability the inconvenience  from which thousands of passengers of  all nations have suffered fur.- years is  about to be removed. In every part of  the world, except New York, the customs officials attend at any time of night  to pass passengers' baggage. But in the  capital of the New World after six  o'clock p. in. passengers become prisoners  for the night. It is high time the -absurd restriction was removed.  NOTES AND COMMENTS.  It speaks well for the peace of the  world "when so much attention  is paid : to such a small and unimportant place as Hawaii. The islands  certainly have somewhat more importance in. affairs of the day than their  size warrants, on account of their geographical position being directly in the  line of trade between the British ports  on the Pacific Coast of America and  Australia. During the recent endeavors  of a sugar monopolist to fill his pockets  by working on the republican susceptibilities of his fellow citizens the various  phases of the intrigue were watched  with eager interest and received as much  attention and as large "head lines" in  the American and Canadian papers as  could be given to the Armenian atrocities or any other event which is-only too  likely to result in a.European war.   The  SILVER BRINGS PROSPERITY.  An Associated Press telegram presents  some encouragingf acts relative tbsiivercoiu-  age. The silver using countries of the world  are declared to be prosperous. Mexico, with  hardly a tithe of the geuius and industry  and commerce that is inherent in our own  people, is' basking in the sunshine of good  times. Her mints are kept busy coining  silver dollars,.and this silver money is ex  ported in large quantities; that,is ho sa.,  ir is demanded by other silver using countries, who desire it for the settlement of  their trade balance with Mexico.  The same story is'told in the statistics of  other silver using countries. ' Their export  trade is increasing, while that of gold using countries is decreasing. It is this fact,  and that alone, which maintains so strong  a bimetallic sentiment iu England. England has no silver mines, and she is a  creditor nation. If she'was situated as the  \Jnited Stales is situated���������had rich mines  of silver and required all her gold to meet  the interest requirements and sight demands���������thereis-littledoubt that-she would  at once go to the double standard.���������Spokes  man Review. ���������  Bank of Montreal  ���������A1"1T.V1. <all paid up), $1:;,000,OOU  REST,       ....       .,0(M>,000  Sir DONALD A.

Mr.'Eberts niovedlhe second reading  of the Red Mountain railway bill, to extend the lime for the commencement  and completion of that, enterprise, lie  explained that (he promoters have not  found it advisable up to the present lo  go on-with the work, which, however,  is one that must prove of great advantage to the Trail Creek mines. "  Mr. Kellie asked that the bill be laid  ��������� 'over fora few days, as he wished to -re-  ceive|certain information from the district in additioij to that already in his  possession. That is to the eil'eci thai il  is quite feasible to' build a railway to  serve this purpose, within Canadian ter  ritory, at the average cost of a mountain  railway, and a telegram to ��������� that, effect  has been received by the Chief Comiuis-  sioner of Lands and Works. He therefore moved the adjournment, of the debate .until Monday next.  -Mr; Eberts did not  see'why  this   bill  should be  held over,   after  passing  the  railway    committee,     simply     because  someone'sent' a telegi;ainythat another  road could be built somew'here.else.  .''Mr..Hume explained that it  was  contended before the committee that a. railway to serve the purpose of this one,   so  Haras the mines aie concerned, cannot be  built in Canadian territory.    Mr;  Kellie.|  having since gone to considerable trouble i bill  and some expense to show that, oue  can '  be built there,   he   thought   the   house  should give an opportunity for this in-  torhiation.to.be produced. . .;    ..  ��������� Debates accordingly adjourned.    .   ..

If not,  when will such appointment be made, and  who wilJ receive the same?  Thursday, Jan. 1.0.���������In answer to Sem-  lin's qu'erie's nnou  the Nakusp & "SIoohm  Railway the Premier leplied: (a) In  quiry shows tliut there are some claims  against the con tractors for the Nakusp &  Slocau railway, but there is no reason for  believing that lhe peis ns . having such  claims are iu any danger of losing them,  (b) No lease, has been signed beyond the  agreement, laid before the legislative assembly at its last session, (c) The Canadian Pacific Railway Company on the  31 st December ultimo accepted, the road  sis complete, subject to some trifling deficiencies which cannot be remedied until  the spring, but the responsibility of which  the government has agreed to assume to  the extent of $3,000.. The government will  either deduct such amoumt from the final  estimate, coming to the company, or else  take satisfactory security from them there-  f r. (d) Thc Nakusp <fe Slocan Il������ilw.iy  Company have i.ot yet received the full  amount of the debenture guarantee, but  are about -to do so. (e) I do not thiuk  .that a lieu could be successfully placed upon -he railway.  On the division for the second reading of  the Provincial ballot bill there was a tie,  there being 13 ayes and 13 noes. The  speaker accordingly gave liif? casting vote  with the ayes, according lo precedent permitting further discussion.  Provincial voters bill and Life Insurance  read a. second  time.   Discussion   on  government.of Cities  bill in    Committee  occupied all rest of the day.  Fiuday, llth.���������Semlin moved adjournment of House to call attention to Nakusp  it Slocan l..ii!w.iy affairs.

Turner, moved second reading  of Loan Bill. He said'he thought there  need be' little said in explanation of it,  the principle of the bill being so simple  that he who runs may read, lt authorizes the province lo boi-jow -������12O;0(.O -in  the form of.inscribed,stock.; ..-.  .The,necessity for raising this money  tnent to see that the employes are paid be  fore llie money is handed to Company.   A  long discussion arose as to whether motion  was iu order.  -Finally after assurance by the P.enrier  that government was lookiug after claims  of workman and also other creditors Semlin withdrew his motion.   Rest of the day  being well known,  he thought anyone  occupied  by..Premier's speech on second  who considers the situation dispassion  ,. ately and fairly will feel that in asking  for ihis sum the gbveihuieht is mit "in  any way exceeding what' the .assets of  the province can fairly stand. He might  say that the assets of the province have  never been fully: estimated. In icality,  our subsidies from the Dominion, which  amount in all over $210,000 per year in  perpetuity, are worth probahiy at- leasl,  taking theni as if they were for 50 years  only, $8,CC;>,000, but as they are in perpetuity, he considered.-them worth ' at  least $18,COO,COO, which.'inay fairly be  added to all our other assets. The last  balance sheet shows that the total liabil-  . ities of the province, including all debts,  . in excess of assets were then about $2,-  400,000, but' in'"reality, Vis before stated,  ,we have not fully valued our assets,  though he did not know why  this '$29,-  , 000 a year should be valued as an asset  whilst the $213,000 is not so valued.  Were we to put down the value of all our  subsidies we should have "many  million   dollars-to-oui_-credit-0-v.ei__all-liabilities.--.  . The.puipose of this loan is first' of. all  to pay off the Overdraft,.but the. rernain-  in^'and^maib'-portrdh is for ��������� 'expenditure  on further public works.  Semlin-opposed the second reading;  but congratulated the government upon  t"h-'determinatibn"just expressed by the  Minister of Finance to adopt the policy  of-economy so long'advocated  by the  - opposition. He thought that the statement just made that the revenue raised  ' within the province has" iiicreascd'150 per  fcenljAvithin the past ten years is the possi-  Tbie argument against, there being any  necessity for going into the money markets, i'or further loans. He would oppose  this one as he had opposed those asked  from the house on two former occasions.  Had lhe finances of the province been  controlled by frugal and wise  men  dur-  ��������� ing the past ten years there would  now  .   be no necessity for borrowing the contemplated  two   millions.

Game Warden Webber, of Washington State is.in receipt of a..letter from  down the straits in which, the writer  narrates having one day seen over 500  elk.

None were shot, as the  packhorses were already overloaded  with game. , Before Sunday four other  hands, averaging sixty each, were passed by the party.  THE CHINESE  AND  TELEGRAPHY.  Out'.ng says that, at first the Chinese  were very bitter against the telegraph, as  it reported the foreigners cut out the  tongues of children aud suspended them  on the insulators'to transmit the message  from pole to pole. Then, again, the wires  disturbed the graves of the. '-Fingshin," the  s"piiTit_of "wind and water." The telegraph instruments used are mostly of London make.  The system of telegraphing in' Chinese is  very simple.-' There are about8,000characters in the Chioese language. These are  all numbered from oue up, and so printed  in book form. Itis therefore; only necessary to telegraph the numbers. This system is used, in .the government despatches.  J. /"">( AVELL, M. A. F. G.
