II. Moffat handed' in a 850,000  check. A few men like him can make it  a success.  "Mouutains of gold" aud "hundred-  ounce-nuggets" are now announced from  Western Australia. The steamship company which has an advertisement in every  interior paper iu the State, offering cheap  fares to Cuolgnrdie, probably has nothing  to do with those reports.  , The Arizona Republican says: "Either  the Holy "Terror mine in South Dakota is  exceptionally appropriately named, or  the operators are holy terrors wheu if  come, to lying. The mine is reported to  have produced ������20,000 worth of gold iu  five days." Arizona can do a little itself  in the line of mendacity.  Louis Blauding says that the statement  that the largest gold nugget ever found  on the Pacilic Slope was worth but 821,  000 is' erroneous. He says, that J. J.  Fiuuey found a lump of gold about six  miles from Dowuievilie, Sierra county,  on the 21st day of August, 1857, that  weiged a fraction over 5000 ounces. Gold  was at that time worth about $18 uu  ounce, which would make the value of  that single lump something like 890,000.  Blandiug further sa. s that there is no  doubt that this nugget was the largest  piece ofs gold ever found. The next largest was from the Baliurat (Australia) gold  _field,aud-was-worth-S60,000 _________  /  The total output for January of thc  Montana Mining Company was 0170 tous  of ore, which continued 2620 ounces of  gold and 20,550 ounces of silver. The  estimated realizable value of the same is  863,300. The expenditures were as. follows: Working expenses, ou revenue  account, $35,200; outlay on developments,  813,900; legal expenses, 8900; extraneous  and traveling expenses, 81.700; machinery, etc., 81000, making a total of 852,700,  and leaving a net result of 815,000 for  the month*.  The best gold story of the week comes  from Utah, where, a telegraphic legend  asserts, a young school teacher aud -his  pupils, while engaged iu geologic re-  . search, fouud gold galore in - the San  Juan river. Tbe regular "three old California miners", were on baud to take  charge, and the result of the first day's  work in the bed of, the stream yielded  82-00. The next best comes from the  Picbuco district, a long letter stating that  "white gold" has beeu fouud there which  "sells readily for 824 an ounce."  Martin Dalgreeu, manager of oue of  Governor Grant's mines in old Mexico,  writes of a very peculiar method they  huve down in that couutry of impressing  miners into the service. The meu receive the enormous stipend of 67 cents a  day, aDd are required to take 80 per cent  of this out iu trade at the company's store.  It is but natural -that there would be  a scarcity of miners at the end of every  payday at these prices, even among the  Greasers.; But they have a'very merry  way of drumming up recruits, that, while  successful in that country, would probably raise trouble if tried in any mining  camp in the States. Every Monday  morning the mounted police are sent to  ��������� scour the country for meu to work in'the  mines, and those who refuse are sent to  jail.  There .are many different kinds of  mines, but there is only one known salve  niiue, aud it is located near Rock c;eek,  Wyo. The mine consists of a grayish  colored clay, nearly as hard as.a rock,  and when placed iu water it softens into  a salve that will heal cut., burns, inflammation, and cure bad hoofs in horses,  and heal all kinds of wouuds, except  love's. Determined not to be outdone  by Wyoming's new salve mine. Colorado  comes to tbe front with a honey mine.  The Golden Globe says: Ou the north  side of North Table mountain the bees  have for years used the caves and crevices  in the rocks as their home." Hundreds of  pounds of honey have been taken out of  these places the past few years. Many  tons of this wild honey have been mined  fi am our mountains, and to get at it the  jocks in places had to be blasted away.  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  FAVOURABLE RECEPTION OF THE  LIBERAli CANDIDATE.  Activity ut the Silver King.���������Cariboo opens  c up.���������Kti-lo-Slovitn Railway.  NELSON.  The mineral claims Black Bird, Manitoba, Gorman and Nonpareil were pur  up for sale by the Deputy Sheriff on  Tuesday last, in sat i taction of a judgment in Taylor v. Flager. Not more  than a dozen people attended the sal*'  and there was noj.bidding. They will  be put up again on the 0th April.  The recent warm weather with mild  rains has caused the creeks to rise. At  Forty-nine Creek everything is now  about ready to begin. As soon as lhe  water comes Mr. Rice will get one  monitor to work. The company has  a quantity of piping at Revelstoke  waiting for the river navigation to  open. When it arrives a second nozzle  will be turned on to the gravel.  At the Silver King Mr. Davys by- use  of the power drill has proved the existence of the ore bodies at a depth considerably below the present workings.  He is engaged at present in thoroughly  examining the mine for the purpose of  making a report to the directors. This  report will probably be ready iu a few  days, when it will be cabled to Loudon.  This is done iu order that no time may be  lost in acting on it when received.  Mr. Frederick Stone of Chicago, who  has had great experience in managing  drills, has been employed by the company to ttike charge of all their machinery of this class.  NEW DENVER.  Two gold blearing claims have been  staked out by E' Shanuou at the mouth  of Five Mile Creek on Slocan Lake.  As reported last week the bond on the  Fisher Maiden has been allowed to lapse.  It was held by W. E Mann, G. W.  Hughes, H. Byers and J. L. Montgomery.  The amouut was 818,000. 81,500 /has  been paid and a large amouut of work  peiformed. Fifty tons of ore have been  shipped which are reported to average  300 ounces of silver, making a total of  89000.  The New Denver Brass Band agave a  "social" this last week at Shannons hall  at which they made their first appearance  in public. It wasa very creditable performance considering the short time the  members have had for practicing. Songs,  recitations and instrumental music helped to pass a very plesant eveningf  Mr. H. Bostock passed through Denver  last week and was introduced to several  of the voters... On his return from -"el-  son he is to address the electors.  The very personal article iu the Ledge  on Mr. Bostock and his views was not  favourably received, and has caused  considerable comment.  Mr. R. B. Kerr is working hard for Mr.  Bostock and it is expected that he will  comraaud tbe larger number of votes here.  From tomorrow two trains will daily  rt.n betweeu Nakusp and Three Forks,  though oue train will probably; be partially used for moving ballast aud slides.  KASLO.  Mr. Hewitt Bostock, the Liberal standard bearer for this constituency, spent  five days in Kaslo this week, Mr. Bostock-^ has���������left- a-good -irapressionr^His  chances for n large majority in Kaslo are  assuied. Mr. McCutcheon of Kamloops  accompanied Mr. Bostock.  Mr. Robt. Irvine, of Victoria, townsite  owner and one ot the Kaslo-Slocan Ry.  Co., arrived here last night. Mr. Irvine  will superintend the building of the scows.  It is his intention to make Kaslo his  future residence and will bring iu his  family here shortly.  Mr. B, R. Briggs was married to Miss  Maude Kane on Wednesday morning  by Rev. Mr. Morden of Nelson.

PILOT BA_.  H. Stevenson has been succeeded iu  the mauagement of the Blue Bell mine  by W.L. Roberts. .  CARIBOO.  There is every prospect of an early-  spring for Cariboo.' The Fraser is open  already. The winter has been exceptionally fine. ���������- People are beginning  to come'in, some without means of  any kind, and these had better keep  away. Cariboo has all the working-  men she requires and'they are all practical miners.  The Boundary, hydraulic claim on  Swift River, 33 miles from Quesnelle  Mouth, owned by L. McLean of Hamilton, will begin operations at once. Tbe  lumber is beiug hauled to the ground  and a two and a half mile ditch has  been commenced. The claim consists  of 160 acres. The gravel is forty feet  deep with a hard slate bedrock.. The  average pay is 43"; cents per cubic  yard. The water consists of 1,000  inches with a fall of 185 feet. Mr. II.  Bout-sin, a well know mining man, has  been appointed foreman.���������Colonist.  Work will be commenced next week  by the Quesnelle Fine Gold Mining Company.  Mr: Palmer, of New Westminister, arrived on the last stage, bringing bis cook  and foreman with him. The machinery  for the scows, which will be-built here,  is already at Ashcroft, and the dredging  is expected to be a great success, b,\  reason of the many saudbars on tin.  Quesnelle and Fraser Rivers.  The Euglish syndicate, represented bj  Mr. Whittier, at Williams Creek, has i  great qtiautity of machinery awaitiuy  shipment from'Ashcroft.  L'OCAL   NEWS.  John Hirsch has gone to Victoria for tin  purpose of passing his examination as v.  surveyor.  Mr. II. McCutcheon, late of the Inland  Sentinel, was in town during the week.  The Northwest" Mining Review-of  Spokane publishes a long account, with  a. map, of the Trail Creel, gold field.   ,  Several Kaslo lots were offered for  sale by the. Deputy Sheriff on Tuesday  and elicited a did of $1000, which was  not accepted, and the sale. was adjourned until 27th May.  The first train of the season left on the  C. & K. railway yesterday afternoon. The  s.s. Lyttou on the Columbia River was to  try to get up to meet her. If successful  this route to Trail Creek will be open  next week.  A great deal of the fruit imported to  Nelson conies from the Snake River,  Idaho, so it is good news to hear that  the crops iii that district have not suffered by the receut frost and are free  from insect pests.  The lake at Nelson has not fallen so  low this winter as it usually does and  this is the more remarkable because the  river at Bonner's Ferry is reported as  being lower than it was ever known  before.  At a private meeting of property  holders on Monday last, a petition tithe government was prepared, praying that, some of the government lots  in the Nelson townsite should be given  towards a subsidy to ensure the establishment of the Hall Mines smelter at  Nelson.  Spring has fairly arrived. On Monday large flocks of geese were seen  passing northwards at great height  overheud. On Tuesday the song of  the robin was heard for the first time.  On Wednesday the Alaska bluebird  made its first appearance and on Thursday morning the first'swallow was to  be seen skimming along the streets.  The travelling public will be glad to  learn that arrangements have been  made-by the Great Noithern Railway  to transfer passengers coining on Saturdays, from Bonner's Ferry to Kaslo,  from the s.s. Nelson to the s.s. Ainsworth at Pilot Bay. On Wednesdays  the Nelson herself goes to Kaslo and  her passengers for Nelson will be transferred to the Ainsworth at Pilot Bay.  The Rev. D. Damphell, minister of  the'Presbyterian church in Nelson,  leaves on Tuesday next to* take a six  months course at the Manitoba College, Winnipeg. Mr. Campbell will be  much missed by his congregation, who  recognize that he is one of the best  Creacheis they have had. There will  e no service at the Presbyterian  church until Mr. Campbell's successor  arrives.  -' Mr."-IIewitt Bostock arrived from  Revelstoke on Wednesday, having  travelled in via Nakusp, New Denver,  Three Forks and Kaslo. At all these  places he received influential promises  of support. He left Nelson on Thursday for Pilot Bay and Ainsworth and  expects to return today. Next week  he will visit Rossland and if the trail  permits may possibly go out to Kettle  River, along the Dewdney Tiail.  I_a".-"week"-Ui' c-niteTnpwaTy"called  attention, none too soon, to the state  of the streets of Nelson. We wish also to urge on the government authorities the necessity of putting them in  order. The road to the wharf is nearly  impassable. There is a huge hole near  the Victoria street bridge, nearly large  enough to bury :i horse -in that is a  source of great danger. We have be-,  fore called attention to the. state of the  railings on the Baker street bridge and  it is high time that these matters were  seen to."  The following extract from the  Kootenay Mail shows what our neighbours think of us." "As described by  one who has lived in them and oil-  served them intelligently,���������Kaslo always stands a solid and unwavering  unit in favour of tiny movement that  tends to benefit the town. Nelson is  equally so, although on a slightly different basis. Internal dissensions may  rage, but when anything arises threatening her from the outside, when a  rival town tries to gain an advantage  over her, the entire population are  welded together like a rock in her defence."

Commercial Journal says  that the property of the Paper Manufacturing Co. at Alberni together with  the stock of paper on hand is offered for  sale by tender by tho mortgagee.  The tender of Mr. Bostock for the  Kamloops waterworks debentures has  been accepted at 97. The other tenderers  were Sun Life Co. 90, R. Ward & Co. 95.  The amount we believe was 825,000.  At a packed meeting in Victoria to  which only members of the Liberal-Conservative Association and of The MacDonald Club were admitted, Col. Prior  and Thomas Earle were, nominated as  candidates ut the coming Dominion  Election.  In the recent half yearly report of the  Bank of B. C. it is stated that "through  the culpable neglect of instructions and  deception on the part of two of our  officers and by the fraudulent conduct of  two of our customers we are this half  year compelled to make provision for a  coustderable loss."  Wr. Warren Curtis, general manager  of the Hudson River Pulp and Paper  Mfg Co., is iu New Westminster buying  wood for his mills. He expresses surprise that there is not more paper manufactured in Canada, seeing how valuable  Canadian woods, especially spruce, are  for the purpose.  Tbe Redondo iron mines, Redondo  island, B. C, and' the Glen iron mines  near Kamloops, have been bonded by an  Ametican firm who are negotiating to  establish iron works near Seattle. The  richness of these iron ores has. been pre  viously poiuted out in the Colonist. The  Redondo mine runs between 60 and 65  aud the Glen mine 65 per cent. When  the Seattle iron works are running full  capacity they claim they will want some  300 tons of ore per day, which will be  taken entirely from these mines.  In Vancouver sixteen sailors of the  Ship Olivebanks refused duty and were  consequently arrested nnd "locked up.  At the hearing it appears that after a  voyage of eleven months they asked for  some wages aud leave of absence. One  dollar and oue day off were granted "to  each man which they did not deem sufficient. In this opinion the Magistrate  coincided for he discharged them saying  that the night they had already spent iu  the lock up was sufficient punishment.-  Iu-our-opinion.it-was-too-much _���������.

Vancouver, March 22.���������Police Magis  tratc Matison arrived from the north today with the story, of another remarkable  shooting case in''which he participated,  and bringing in a man called James Lobb.''  alias James Gosner. On Tuesday last(  while the police boat Stella was tied up  at Valdez island, this man came aboard  and asked several unimportant questions,  giving his name as James Gosner. ������������������ Mr.  Malison who saw that the man was iu  distress of some kind, asked him to dinner; his guest chatted intelligently ou  the relations of labor and capital, and  after dinner asked if he might remain on  board, during the night us he had no  place to go aud was out of work. The  stranger, D. B. Low (the engineer), John  J; Grant and Mr. Manson sat in the engine room smoking and chatting; Gosner  talked a good deal about the salvation  army, and acted in a manner altogether  rational until --hiring a lull in the conversation he said suddenly, without previously leading tip to the remark and as  if talking to himself, "It is a matter of  life and death" with me." Mr. Manson  asked him what ��������� was the matter that he  should use such language, and if he" had  got into any scrape? He said "No," aud  was particular in describing how he had  reached Valdez island. As it was 11  o'clock at night and his boat was going  to start at 3 o'clock in the morning, Mr.  Manson took the lantern and went out to  get a blanket and pillow for the stranger.  Low and Grant partially undressing and  lying on their bunks iu the engine room.  When outside Mr. Manson beard a  shot, and cried out "What's the matter  in there?" "He got no answer, but heard  anothershot. Holding the lantern to his  side under his arm he came'to the engine  room door, but as soon as he opened it  the lantern was smashed by another bullet that must have gone very close to his  body. The prisoner, standing in the  centre of tbe room, five 4imes pulled the  trigger, but twice the cap only snapped;  Grant was badly wounded in the leg, but  Low and Mr. Manson miraculously escaped. During the firing the stranger  did nor say a word.  Mr. Manson slipped off his shoes and  kept in the shadows for an hour and a  half. During that time the stranger  held them iu terror. Then he stepped off  the boat to the wharf, aud Mr. Manson,  creeping along in the shadows, slipped  on to the wharf too and let go the lines.  Tho tide soon drifted the boat out and  Mr. Manson rowed to the nearest Indian  reserve iu tbe darkness nnd securing the  help of two trusty Indians, again rowed  along the beach, where with Mr. Walker  the school teacher, they soon spied the  stranger sitting between two boulders.  They pretended to be tishiug, aud hastening to the Indians told them where their  man was. The Indians strolled near the  stranger with their guus, pretending to  hunt, and asked Gosner to breakfast with  them. He consented and as soon as they  could get on each side of bim, according  to Mr. Manson's instructions, they pinioned him.  Grant, the injured.man, was brought  to the hospital here. His wound is above  the knee and is very dangerous. All  morning the doctors have been probing  for the bullet in vain, as it has taken an  upward course along the bone, and as  the wound has only been partially attended to since. Tuesday there are fears of  blood poisouing. An examination of the  prisoner's effects proves him to be James  Lobb, formerly of Kamloops, where he  was at one time a special* constable. He  has given no reason for the shooting, the  ouly time he has spoken since the arrest  beiug shortly after the Indians first seized  him, when he said "Have I killed any  one  ������"  CANADIAN NEWS.

"Don't stop  at L��������� L���������.   Better ro-  main over night at C a and go ou  olear through to L d the noxt day. "  These wero tho parting words of our  genial host of the Ukiah inn, Mendocino county, Cal. I had purchased a couple of horses and a pack mulo lower  down in the valley and was taking  them along the old Oregon stage route  to my homo in the northern part of tho  etate.  Accompanying me were my overseer,  Robort Thorndycke Hawkins, or, as he  was moro generally known, Rancheria  Bob, and an easterner named Wilson,  who was going to spend a few months,  on the ranch "to see how it was done. "  I had not advertised for boarders nor  contemplated starting a "tenderfoot  nursery," but Wilson, whom I had met  at the Palace hotel, seemed such a genial, pleasant fellow that it was impossible to refuse his earnest request to  join ns in our mountain life. Bob was  rather opposed   to  the scheme, but not  - being a prominent factor iu tho matter  Wilson came along.  Our route lay through a section of  country which had elapsed into a demi-  civilized state, tho mines thero having  In a measmo becomo exhausted, tho  stage route abandoned for tho more  expeditious railroad aud the immense  timber tracts still being too far distant  to be worked to any advantage. Tho  men as well as thc other conditions took  a backward growth, and thoso who remained were very favorably described  as "tough;" hence the cautioning instruction from our landlord.  Acting upon such advice, wo planned  our daily route so as to pass L������������������ L���������  at noon. We were all well equipped  with rides aud si do arms, and looked  forward to a very pleasant journey.  Our horses were in fiuo' condition, as  also was the mule. Perhaps it is needless to say that Bob and myself rode  the former, whilo Wilson was happy on  the mule.  The view was charming, with constantly changing vistas. Now exquisite  groups of bouquet shaped elm trees  bauntcd tho river bank, and again au  opon, undulating meadow with wooded  hills in tho near distance, backed by  the great blue tinted mountains of tho  Coast rango. We traveled on, enjoying  the constantly changing view, without  - any incident uncommon to any trip of  the kind, and the evening of the second  day found ns at C a.    From here  L������������������d was 54 miles and L��������� L��������� but  89.- As theso were tho only settlements  in the country, wo felt it incumbent on  .us to make an early start, as it would  be a good day's work for the horses,  who were beginning to show effects of  their recent efforts.  Various rumors as to the sanctity and  future prospects of the L~ L���������ites (we  classified them as geologists do other  hard material) kept reaching ns as wo  journeyed on. So corroboratory were  tho reports that we looked upon our ap-  __proaoh.as__one-in_the_oldon-times-m nst-  have felt on nearing Sodom or Gomorrah. L��������� L��������� was one of thoso places  (which fortunately aro becoming few)  where no restriction is placed on any  olass of society, and the mediaeval law,  "Might makes right, "is tho only rcc-  ognizod judicial power. Thero were perhaps 200 people in all forming tho iixed  population, though ' at certain seasons  there might bo double that number.  The only-visible means of support of  the inhabitants was catering to tho  vices of their fellow men. It was tho  escape valve of that lawless class who  haunt tho borders of a now civilization.  Miners came there to-pend Sunday and  - the result of their past week's toil.  Herders who might havo been leading a  = hermit's life in tho mountains i'or three  - months brought there tho result of  their labor and .did not leave until it  was all exhausted. We did not belicvo  much of all this that was told in regard to the place, considering the greater part of the information of that mythical construction common to the character of such a region.  Our intention of starting early iu the  - morning from  C a was frustrated  by ono of the horses casting a shoe, and  it was nearly 0 when wo entered the  woods . beyond  C a.    However,  we  - had tho prospect of  a  moonlight night-  ��������� and did not despair of reaching L d  in fairly good season. We crossed tho  watershed at tho Mendocino valley, aud  were descending into tlmt' of Humboldt, tho road following the twisting  Eel-river. Here begins the greatest redwood belt in the state, and as we traveled lower down the valley we saw tho  trees which were'100 feet or so high on  the foothills assume such . mammoth  proportions   that   the  distance' to their  - tops could scarce be measured in as  many yards. Thoy now became an important factor in the topography of the  road, which deviated from its course  continually, obedient to the dictation  of these monarchs. This constant interruption made what had been a fairly  direct, road a system, of geometrical  curves, impossible to follow in any iixed direction. From a certainty it became a labyrinth. The great size and  abundance  of- the trees  stilled  the afc-  ��������� mosphere,- giving a somber effect to all  '   the varied sounds natural to the woods.  We could see limbs swinging at the tops  of the trees and yet scarce bear or perceive a trace of  the wind, which moat  have been strong to move them so violently. The very jingle of our saddle  equipments seemed discordant amid the  deeper harmonies.  It was hero, in the stage times, that  Black Bard, tho poot highwayman, reaped many a rich harvest. His was a chivalrous nature, and his memory is hold  sacred in many a cabin in tho woods.  Ono stago driver told with pride how,  alter relieving him of tho mail and  Wolls-Fargo's box, Black Bard asked  him for a chow of tobacco. His nom de  plumo arose from tho fact that, aftor rifling tho mail, ho would jot down a  doggerel verse upon tho back of somo  specially lucrative envelope���������an extemporaneous address of sympathy to tho  owner of the package���������and sign "Tho  Black Bard. " His final capturo, after  many liberal rewards, was unique. Be-  uig interrupted in his self enforced inspectorship of a mail, ho departed, in  his haste loaviug one of his cull's. This  was traced by tho laundry mark to San  Francisco and led to his capturo. Stories as to his prowess and tho speed and  beauty of his horses are too numerous  to mention. His great virtue, so tho  peoplo said, was his liberality to tho  poor, and tho fact that he never robbed  from auy ono but the express company  and the mail. As we threaded tho tortuous road we could easily imagine a  highwayman stepping from behind ono  of -tho enormous trees and calling on  us to "hold up our hands."  Coming upon a little spring, we halted awhile to refresh both ourselves and  our horses. Hero wo calculated that wo  wero distantr,but eight miles from L���������  L��������� and still had 23 more to go before  L d was reached.  It being bnt little  past   noon, our rido  through L��������� L���������  before  dark  and  reaching  L d   in  good time seemed a foregone conclusion.  Nature, however, often upsets the best  of calculations, for scarcely were wo  remounted when a heavy shower 1:111110  on, softening the road so as to make a  slow walk good speed. Our hopes fell  with tho rain, which was dismal enough  in the big woods, rendering still darker  a gloomy way. To return was as far  out of our plan as to continue, the  woods at night being as dark as a pocket. L��������� L��������� must be our abiding place  perforce. We consulted, therefore, as to  the best means to avoid trouble should  the inhabitants feel in a sportive mood.  It being the middle of the week was  a point in our favor, as thero would in  all probability be few.outsiders in town.  Our first care was Wilson, whose verdancy was too apparent to conceal and  would no doubt render him moro or less  a butt of frontier wit. Bob advised him  to go to bed at once on his arrival and  said by way of inducement that ho could  theu watch our property, which wo  would of course be obliged to lcavo in  our rooms. Wilson was perfectly willing to do this, especially after Bob's  graphic description of "the dancing  act," firing a revolver under a man's feet  to see if they aro tender. Our most emphatic advice was not to show any money over that absolutely essential for his  expenses. The rain and mud had sufficiently taken tho newness from our outfit, and we thought we could represent  ourselves as going north to work ou  somo of tho big ranches.  It was near dark when we reached  tho town and slowly rode through the  ono street on which it was built, looking for the best appearing hotel. On  both sides were rows of. hotels, gambling houses, barrooms and stores,  sometimes separate, but ofteuer all combined in one building. With the desire  of getting as far as possible through the  town, we selected the la6t houso on the  road and applied for shelter. The rain  had ceased, and the sky was beginning  to clear. We almost regretted that we  had not decided to keep on, but the  -horses -wero -too-tiretl-to-make-the-idea-  feasible. As wo r.clo through tho villago tho "stoop population" wero interested enough to comment on the general appearance of us aiid our horses,  but in 110 way other than common to  all western towns. Ono remark I remember, applying to Wilson: "That  yellow haired ono on tho mule is a 'ten.  derfoot'���������look at his 'chaps.' " Wilson had leggings instead of boots.  ' Wo went to a stable between the hotel and woods, unsaddled our horses,  and taking our rifles, etc., went up to  our"rooms. Bob and I soon went down  to our supper, which was fairly good  for tho country. Wo told tho peoplo,  who seemed rough, but pleasant, that  our frioi'd.was too tired to como down  and secured supper for him. Taking  down his dishes, we sauntered into tho  barroom and were agreeably disappointed to find things fitted np as well as  .elsewhero along the road. Tho building  was of a class ��������� common in the west, an  oblong two story structure, with piazza  facing the street. Down stairs were tho  barroom, kitchen, dining room and  owners' living rooms, while-the entire  second story was for guests. This was  subdivided7 by a narrow hall running  lengthwise, leaving numerous small  boxes called bedrooms on either side,  one row fronting the piazza and the  street, and the other . commanding an  extensive rear view. As we were about  the only guests, we had rooms in tho  front row. The house was uuplastered,  and only the lower floor room's were  ceiled.  Bob aud I seated ourselves in the'bar-  room and answered the various questions commonly asked of travelers and  .began to laugh at jpur fears, although  there were some pretty tough faces  among the auditors.  Our attention was attracted to a cowboy who appeared, a'stranger, like ourselves, and who volunteered the information that he, too, was going to L d  in tho morning. Although we had always made a rule to be chary in talking  to strangers, there was something in  his face and manner attractive, and I  found myself holding quite au animated  conversation with him. His name was  Dick. This,, involved an invitation to  drink, which I compromised by the less  of two evils^r-a western cigar���������which I  smoked to the bitter end. I had just resumed my good old pipe in order to remove the unpleasant taste  of "friend-  NELSON  LOTS  &_.  Ml  A new Railway under Construction.

TI* said he had  just run down for a moment for sonic  cigars, and I let him court his iato and  purchase somo of tho brand I had smoked. To my surprise, ho offered a $20  goldpieco in payment.  This was the keyuoto to tho wholo  trouble. Tho barkeeper, a big, burly,  foxy eyed fellow, slid tho gold back of  the counter, passed out tho cigars and  returned chango for only $1. Wilson  told him ho had given him $20. Tho  barkeeper bluntly denied this and produced a silver dollar as the 0110 handed  liiin and appealed to a bystander, who,  of course, confirmed his statement, and,  moreover, challenged any one in the j  houso to differ. Although many had j  seen the transaction, no one objected,  and Wilson, after hesitating a moment,  cauio back to me. In languago more emphatic than polite I told him to go up  to his room. Dick looked surprised, and  when Wilson bad gone asked if ho was  ono of our party. I replied in the affirmative aud gavo the circumstances  of Wilson's connection with us. Dick  studied a moment and then asked,  "Are you going to let him lose that  money without making a kick?" I told  him I did not see any other way to do,  as to mako a row in that place would  bo foolish. He wanted to know what I  would give him to s got tho coin back,  and I replied that he could havo the  whole, as wo had lost our claim.  "Will yon back mo up, and has your  friend'(meaning Bob) got any sand?"  said Dick.  I wtis very much worked up over the  whole affair, and although I don't believe in getting into a row unless it is  forced upon a man it goes against one's  grain to seo such a barefaced robbery as  Wilson's, sol said, "Yes," although 1  did not really belicvo that ho was in  earnest���������in fact, I could not imagine  how ho would go about a recovery. I  was soon to loam. ^  We had remained in tho barroom an  hour after Wilson's retirement, and the  place had gradually become deserted  until there woro but half a dozen people besides the barkeeper and ourselves  remaining, and several of theso wore  sleepy drunk. Tho barkeeper, though  he glanced now and then in our direction, paid ns no other attention. He  seemed to havo forgotten tho gold episode. I had given up auy idea that  Dick's suggestions were coining to a  point, and was thinking of retiring,  when ho got up, sauntered over to the  bar in an easy manner, and, quick as a  flash, covered tho barkeeper with his re  volvcr, and asked him to "return that  money." Bob and myself at once covered the remainder of theparty, who protested, however, that they had no intention of interfering. Tho barkeeper  saw his pKd^ici������m.ejy^uid_s_u.l_lenly_lian.(l__  ed out a $20. goldpieco. The only remark he mado was, "You'll wish you  was 'burning' before you ever started  for L��������� L���������, and if you think you aro  going to como it on us so easy you aro  making a big mistake "  Dick did not reply, and soon we all  went up to Wilson's room. As wo went  up stairs wo could distinguish among  the babble of cries tho words, "That's  a plucky cu;;s," "Are you going to lot  thoso tenderfoot beat you?" "Geo, Bill,  you've beon held up. You've got to  treat." "It won't Ho for those follows  to boast that they did up L��������� L���������,'' and  then Bill's deep voice: "And they  won't "either. I'll get my innings beforo they leave, yon mark me."  Wo found Wilson barricading the  door of tho room with bureau and wash-  stand. ���������Wc hold a council of war. Wo  could hear the men talking below ns.  Wilson's'room was directly ovor tiie  bar, and by cutting a hole through tho  flooring wo left only tho ceiling between  them and us, so wo could hear distinctly everything thoy said. Fortunately  the affair occurred too late to bring out  a big crowd, and only a few of the near  neighbors, attracted by tho report, had  come in. They decided that wo were  too well armed, to assault us in our  rooms, especially as wo were nu our  guard, but thought tho best idea would  be to attack us when we came down, as  we would havo to do or starve. With  this idea, one of them commenced boring holes in the stairway casing, presumably to shoot through. Naturally  we prepared to go out tho window.  The bed was one of the old fashioned  roped kind, and removing tho rope from  this and blowing out our light we laid  the  bedclothes  on  the   roof,   removed  our boots and  carefully crawled to tho  , far end of the piazza.    The noise in tho  barroom  seemed to- havo drowned any  noise wo made, and our only fear was ,  of some one coming out.    Tying our ri-'!  fles and other' things into two bundles, '  Dick lowered  them, and  then'wo -.11  slid down the  corner post and put for j  tho woods.   There we finished.dressing, !  and Dick and I  then went to the stable  for our horses.   .Tho  clouds had been'  breaking  away for  some time, and tho  moonlight mado us so conspicuous that  we  had  to watch   thc shadows as we  dodged across the open space.    We had  little trouble in finding our horses, aud ,  started  out, each leading two, I in ad- j  vance.   As my head horse approached j  tho threshold of tho door his sharp  hoofs came down upon a fiat stone with  a loud clatter. I expected every mo-  mctit to seo tho hotel door open, but  thoy cither did not hear or thought it n  common noise in tho stable.  Fearing a repetition of tho alarm, I  ripped up au old blanket, and muffling  tho horses' hoofs we led them out  whero the others were waiting, trying  to account for our long delay. Then all  commenced arranging their things ou  their saddles. I finished first, and  mounting my horse, with my rifle on  Iny knee, placed myself as a scout to  watch tho hotel. I confess that I thou  felt comfortable for tho first time that  night. It was well I did, for uo sooner  had I mounted and my horse moved a  few steps away than ono of the other  horsos sounded a neigh that roused al)  the occupants of the houso we had left.  Flinging open the door so that the light  fell full upon me, some ono yelled,  "They arc getting away!" and emptied  his revolver at us. Wo could hear the  bullets sing about ns, but no damage  was done, and as tho others woro ready  Bob called to me to "pull out." This I  would have been glad to do, but my  horse refused to budge a step. I thiuk  ho was dazzled by the flashes from tho  revolver. I never thought of dismounting, but receiving another saluto opened up with eight of my hoavy cartridges  at tho doorway. When I finished, it was  vacant. I heard the bottles break as the  balls went crashing into the woodwork  of the bar. Dick in the meantime had  ridden back to seo what tho trouble was  and was firing his 44 rifle as fast as he  could. L��������� L��������� was certainly being  waked up. You could seo lights appearing all along tho street. But 110 one  came our way on account of the bullets.  I think tho peoplo thought wo were tho  landlord's party in tho woods attacking  tho uuruly guests.  Ono fellow I shall never forget. He  camo out of the house and was just  aiming to fire as I shot. Ho made a perfect picture of tho tragic as ho gavo a  little spring, his rifle fell to tho ground  and soou he himself staggered into a  sitting posturo. I had hit him in the  shoulder. A second later I saw a flash  from tho barn and felt a burning sensation in my neck. Jabbing my spurs into  my horso, to my glad surpriso he started on a run after the others. Dick lost  no timo in following. . We found Wilson suffering from a severo wound in  the cheek. A ball had glanced from a  tree and cut him quite badly. My neck  had just a scratch. u  Wo pushed tho horses along at a sharp  gallop for some distance, iu spito of the  mud, and then halted for a consultation.   It was  perfectly silent   in tho  woods.    I advised going ou to L- d.  Dick, however, raised objections, saying thero wore lots of short cuts by  _which_tho_L���������_L���������ites-could-get-ahead-  of us, especially as they had fresh horses,  and they would certainly try to. Ho  know of an old claim up a creek which  the road crossed a little way ahead  where we would bo perfectly safe, if we  could throw thorn off our trail. This we  decided to try. When wo arrived at tho  croek, Dick sent Bob and Wilson up tho  creek, telling them to keep in thc water  all tho time. Tho creek was one of thoso  shallow, rapid streams common to tho  section, and tho directions were not  difficult to follow. Having started them,  he and I crossed tho creek and continued ou the road for nearly a mile.  Then wo came to a rocky ridge. Riding  to tho top of this, we followed it until  wo reached tho creek, about half a niilo  below our first crossing. Wo.continued  up to tho roadway and over the samo  routo again, and at last on and after our  friends. Tints wo left a plain trail going along tho road from tho creek  should tho searching party examine our  tracks.  As we turned on up the creek I  thought I heard voices back of us, but  was not sure. Wc hurried along, the  rushing of the water drowning the rattle of our horses' hoofs against the  stones. It was some time' beforo we  . overtook Bob and Wilson, and all were  feeling tired out, horses and men, when  Dick led the way up tho bank, through  tbe redwoods, to our goal.  .- We found there a fair cabin. Tethering our horses, we went inside and  built a big fire of dry wood, and arranging our saddles and/ helmets lay down  to rest. How wo did sleep! It was  broad sunlight and a gorgeous day when  at last wo awoke. After a wash in the  creek, had it not been for Wilson's  cheek, it would havo been hard to realize that our previous evening's experience was more than a dream. The horses  wero feeding on the rich bottom grass,  aud this reminded us that we had nothing to eat. To shoot would attract attention, and'although we had seen deer  about we left them alone.  Bob's ingenuity came to bur rescue.  He had noticed several covey of quail  in aud about the clearing, which on bis  approach scurried through a gap in a  thicket. Acting on this idea, he con-,  srructed a fenco in shape of a V, and at  the apes fixed a cage trap, so that by  pulling a string itlocked the quail in.

Bostock arrived in Nelson on  Wednesday and proceeded to visit as  many of the prominent men in the  town as he could in a day and a half.  He has met with a most kindly reception and promises of support from  men whose influence and position indicate that the vote polled for the  liberal candidate in this district will  be n large one.  Owing to the news, of another session  which reached Nelson on Thursday  Mb. Bostock will form no regular  committee here just now, but will content himself with making the acquaintance of as many of the voteis as he  possibly can, explaining his views to  them and finding cut the nature and  requirements of the district. The constituency he has to cover is an enormous one, probably the largest in the  Dominion. By and by, when the date  of the elections is more fully ascertained, Mk. Bostock will visit the  district again and meetings will beheld  in due form.  j His address has been published fur  and wide and defies criticism. That is  to say the criticism of fair and honest  opponents, who will take it as it is and  not try to make it something else.  For instance in more than one journal  we have noticed that Mb. Bostock is  set up for a free trader. He never says  so in his address. But unscrupulous  persons pretend that he did und then  assail him in the character which they  themselves havo put upon him. .  ! Mr. Bostock's two chief planks are :  I Development of the natural resources  ���������' of the country and a reduction (not  abolition) of customs duties., To aid  the first Mr. Bostock's vote will  always be given to all schemes that  may have for their object the improvement of coiiinnuiic.itions by road,  rail or river. In the case of the Red  Mountain Railway, which is now  applying for powers to^the Dominion  House, were Mr. Bostock there the  railway would have his vote. River  navigation is directly under the control of the Dominion House which  may possibly be applied to for certain  improvements to the Columbia River,  -a matter-of the greatest importance to  the development of this country.  ~ Unfortunately the Re'dMountTiiTTRail^  way Bill will come up before a* House  of which Mb. Mara is a member and  it and other useful works in this country that do not play right into the mit  of the C. P. It. may expect little mercy  from him.  With regard to the Tariff Mr. Bos-  : took, whatever his' own- private con-  / convictions may  be,  recognizes that  \ Free Trade  would   not suit Canada.  He- also  recognizes   that -protective  ���������'   duties so arranged as to (ill the pockets  :   of eastern manufacturers do  not suit  Canadians at large.    He  will devote  ;    his energies to the support of a tariff  ;    60 arranged as to fall entirely   into  the country's treasury and so moderated us to keep that treasury  full and  no niore-  /     Already Mr. Bostock has travelled  fromcKamloops through  a large part  of the Okanagan country, where large  promises of support have  been  made  to him.    In Kootenay he will poll   hy  far the largest vote.    Cariboo holds  out a most flattering invitation to him;  {lis' chances   of  success   are   indeed  bright:  columns with the above result. : There  was no necessity to-'mention any  names. ' Another case has been reported to us*where the men considered  that proper means were not taken for  their safety. Miners are by no means  cowards nor are they unreasonable;  They are as a rule an honest and intelligent class of men who give a good  days work for a good days pay, nor  are they given to grumbling. AVhen  therefore they complain ofthe method  of working a mine it is better for the  employer to listen with favourable  ears to their complaint and to remedy  its cause. Even if what seems to him  a little unnecessary timbering or driving may have to be done, it is better  for him to do it than to have an inspector appointed who brings with him  a host of troublesome rules, the carrying out of which involves no little expense and is always irritating.  There is another aspect of this question which is a very serious one. If a  mine owner refuses to comply with the  request of his men that certain precautions should be taken to guard  them from accident, and when they  refuse to work places other men on  the job, he assumes a. terrible responsibility that would bring with it a long  sentence in gaol if in consequence of  his refusal an accident should happen.  We trust that the good sense of  both employers and men on this subject will for a long time save the district from the troubles and expense  that come in the train of a mine inspector.  THE SAFETY' OF MINERS.  ���������  . .. It is not to  be expected that the  great development of this district can  go oh much longer without the appointment of a mining inspector. Fortunately no terrible accident owing to  the carelessness of owners has, as yet,  sharply called the attention of the  government to the .necessity .for such  an officer. When a mine is being  worked in such a fashion as to render  it unsafe to the lives of the men employed they are not slow iu letting the  circumstance be known, with the reT  suit that the owner finds that the class  of men whom he employs is falling off.  The wages he pays do not produce so  much work, and if he is not short  sighted he probably at once. sees and  remedies the cause. That is what has  happened in one of the mines at Trail  Creek, where a tunnel is now being  "run to improve, the ventilation and  also as a more convenient and safer  method of reaching the workings than  by a deep and irregular shaft. Attention was drawn to, this case in our  something of the kind outlined above  to advertise the mining country of  B. C? By and by the great rush of  English capital is sure to come, and  when it does come the.largest, investments of our American friends and  supporters will seem trivial beside the  millions of British-sovereigns that will  come rolling in. Then the C. P. R.  will use every endeavour to benefit  itself by the great things going. Will  it not help now to set the ball rolling?  INTERNATIONAL  COURTESY.  Only last week the press of the  United States, from Florida to Washington, was in a state of fennent because a Spanish gunboat in the. West  Indies had fired upon a steamer carrying the American flag. The details of  the incident have not yet come to  hand, but, judging from the tone  of the press remarks, if the  Spanish gunboat is found to have been  unjustified in her action Spain will be  made to eat very humble pie, but as  no one appears to have been hurt  probably there will be no excuse to  extort an indemnity. Last year the  British Consul was expelled from Blue-  fields, a town of Nicaragua, and now  Great Britain demands an indemnity  of ������15,000 for the insult to the flag. If  we mistake not the British Consul at  the time was protecting American as  well as English subjects. The Seattle  Post Intelligencer, which in spite of  its cumbrous name, generally keeps a  level head, prints this news under the  heading "England, The Bully (in large  capitals). Now that Great Britain  threatens by arms to collect money,  due to Englishmen from Spanish  American Republics the United States  must enforce^or give up the Monroe  doctrine." Were this nut evidently  the work of some inexperienced subeditor, with no knowledge apparently  of the courtesy which exists among  nations as well as amongst individuals,  it would be a serious matter. Were  England to notice it it would necessitate a very abject apology, but great  though the reputation of the Seattle  P. I. may be here iu the West, it is  unknown elsewhere. The Munro Doctrine is not as yet incorporated in the  law of nations aud has therefore no  existence outside the brain pans of  some-few.citizens of-1he-United States.  England has just as much right to  exttactan indemnity from the Republic of Nicaragua as she has to make  arrangements for the-collection of her  debts from the Argentine Republic.  The tail-twisting business is all very  well in the Eastern and Southern  States, where it only raises a smile  across the Atlantic. But here, as elsewhere along the International Boundary, it is better not to give gatuitous  insults to either nation. Here ' we  desire only to dwell in peace and unity  with our neighbours and, judging from  the specimens of them who dwell  amongst us, they are the last people in  the world to insult a friendly nation.  NOTES AND COMMENTS.  By command of Sir William Van  Horne, his very humble servants, the  Premier and Ministers of the Dominion  of Canada, have summoned a session  of Parliament to meet on the 18th  April'.  The Inland Sentinel suggests Kamloops as a suitable site for a smeller,  alleging that it is as favourable as any  and better than some. Few people  will doubt the latter statement, but  the former seems to be built entirely  out of the loyalty the paper naturally  feels to its own town. In trying to  make out its case it urges that it is not  necessary for smelters to be near  mines. Possibly not, but where that  is the case it simply means the saving  of so many dollars and cents in freight.  Every argument that other towns can  nut. forth applies over and over again to  Nelson. Nelson is the one place for a  smelter in the country and she is going  to have a.smelter.- tier railway connections, her splendid waterways, her  central and easily reached position  with reference to all tbe camps, point  her out as the best site in the country  and the energy of her inhabitants is  not going to allow these facts to be  overlooked. '  IT ONLY IVANTS STARTING.  When the gold lields of South Africa  were first opened up, we remember  that it was not the people of the country who drew attention to them. They  were not in a position to do-so. The  great African steamship lines placarded all England from north to south,  from east to west, with notices of reduced passages to the gold fields of  South Africa. It was impossible to  enter a railway station or hotel without seeing attractive advertisements  on every side.- The same companies  took good care that the newspapers of  England were well supplied with news  of the right sor.t from the various  camps. In this way the attention of  t he English people was directed to the  new field for investment and millions  of money poured into Africa.- No'  longer was it necessary for the hardy  prospector or. comparatively poor  mining man to scrape and pinch in  order to hold on,- thiough years of bad  times, to his claim. A market opened  to him. Mining properties were  sought and eagerly purchased. Prosperity reigned.  Does the C. P. R. do anything of  this kind? It is true that one sees  everywhere pictures of their magnificent steamers. But these only act as  inducements to rush people through  British Columbia to the benefit of  China and Japan. If the railway has  not got,to much to do between this and  harvest might they not get in and do  KODAK   AGENTS.  Amateur Work Developed.  l'lioi<������|craphic Sundries Supplied.

A telegram from Berlin says that  "Members of the council of state agree  in describing the Emperor as an unusually able chairman." Probably  they do. The vote of thanks to the  chair is doubtless exceedingly enthusiastic at the end of these meetings.  This excellent chairman is the same  Emperor who wrote a song called  _l_ger and then imprisoned some hundreds of people because they dared to  criticise it adversely. It is little to be  "wondered at that the council of state  are ready to black his boots if called  upon to do so. If he were to set up a  Golden Calf and call upon the people  to fall down and worship it, it would  be a bad day for any person who had  a stiff neck on the occasion. All the  same this is not the kind of monarch  who is wanted nt this end of the nineteenth century. He is an awful warning and Britishers may well rejoice in  the freedom they enjoy iu their own  form of government.  The Colonist is very fond of laying  down the law about Dominion and  Provincial politics and we ali listen to  it with the same sort of respect with  which a grown man listens tothe advice of an aged and infirm aunt. Respect for the old lady bids him receive  the lecture with all due'deiference. In  an article on "English Journalism"  the Colonist points oiit how the  Weekly Edition of The Times (not the  Weekly Times, auntie) the leading opposition journal eulogises the action of  Mr. Fowler in the question of the  Indian Cotton Duties, Mr. Fowler  being a prominent member of the  Liberal C'ovei'iiineiit, to which The  Times is opposed. - The writer of the  article is evidently not acquainted  with British political methods. There  are in parliament certain subjects regarded us'party matters, and there  are others, of which the Indian cotton  duties is one, which in no way come  under that head. When such as these  are under discussion members may  and do vote in either lobby and political journals take up either side of  the question as they see fit.  This naturally brings up a little  matter which we extract from the  Victoria Times, showing that in this  cbunti'y"edit.-ors-do-not"seein_to_feel"it'  necessary to stick to one side at all.  Like the free lances of old, their  swords (or pens) are at the orders of  who will pay tbem best:  Dal ton McCarthy wis a vigorous protectionist, and is now one of the most earnest opponents of the system, which he clearly sees'is  doing lho country inlinite harm But I know  of a case of a man who was converted tho  wrong way, the present editor of the Colonist,  to wit. Some years ago, that gentleman was  editor of tho Patriot, in C'harlotletown. P.E.l,  and 1. have preserved the following product of  tiis pen. which .contrasts strangely with his  preachings in favour of protection today:  "The natural industries of this province (Prince  Kdward Island) uocd no protection from any  one. Our farming and lulling industries,  which are of the first importance to us, can  hold their own against thu res. of tho world  any day, if tlie Dominion Government, instead  of nampering their development, will matte it  easy and prolitable. It cniinoL be done, however, by a scheme of high taxation. Tho plan  of protection proposed by Sir John (McDonald)  is no doubt satisfactory to the manufacturers  of Toronto and Montreal, who, while they  accept nothing from us in return, will compel  us to pay them their own prices for everything  made in their factories. This new-fangled  notion of the politicians should In; returned to  Washington, the place from whence it came."  AVe have received from Bradley,-  Garratson & Co., publishers, of Brant-  ford, Ontario, a printed sheet- containing a few extracts from a. book they  Iiave just published (we do not intend  to mention its name.) These extracts  are sent with the hope that we shall  review the book from them. Further  we are offered the volume at a reduction of J0% off the retail price for the  purpose of review. This is the most  impudent attempt on the part of publishers to get a review that we have  ever met and it is to be hoped that no  journal in'the" country will be so"  foolish as to give them one. They  must, think that.the journalists of this  country are a set of fools who do not  know their business. When a publisher wants his book reviewed ��������� he  sends a copy, "with .his compliments,  to the editor of the "journal in which  he desires the review to appear. The  rest remains with the editor. He is  not obliged to mention the book at all.  It may in his opinion be "not worth  mentioning (and often is).

It was a positive  uovelty to the great majority of mining meu. It commanded attention by reason  of its simplicity and evident practibility. Experienced' mining engineers were  astonished to"learn that such a machine had beeu in successful operation for over  two years in the extreme north-western part of tbe United States. (9)  .

"Washington, March 20.���������The prospect  of serious complications which threatens  the United States through probable  European encroachment on Venezuela  and Nicaragua, has assumed a phase of  such danger to the principle iaid down  in the Monroe doctrine that a special  cabinet confeience was held at the "W'liite  House this afternoon to discuss the subject. There is uo doubt whatever that  the subjects are considered by the President and Secretary Gresham as of much  greater import to this country than the  Alliauca incident or the recall of Minister  Thurston aud must be handled with unusual delicacy, and with the knowledge  that a misstep may plunge the govern-.  __ent into embarrassing complications  with not one, but several, of the principle European nations. It is said that  Mr. Bayard has failed to arrange the  Mosquito tribes with thc British government in a mauuer satisfactory to the  "United States. Great Britain's ultimatum to Nicaragua demanding an indemnity for the expulsion of Mr. Hatch,  the British consular agent, from Blue-  fields and the report that a'' Briti-h  warship is on her way to enforce the  demand, is the latest known serious  phase of tbe difficulties growing out of  the Bluefields affair, and as action by  this government may iuvolve a new construction of the Monroe doctrine it can  be seen bow slowly and carefully the  President and his advisers are obliged  to feel their way to prevent any possibility of blunder, or to neglect any advantage that might weaken the general  sponsorship which the United States  government holds over the South American and Central American republics. In  the Venezuelan affair the United States  government rinds itself opposed to such  strong .adversaries aa Great Britain,  France, Germany with Belgium as au incidental factor.  Tbe settlement of tbe claim of Great  Britain to certain Venezuelan territoiy  is the main cause for alarm, aed tn this  is added tbe prospect that Germany will  send war ships to collect a large amount  of mouey guaranteed German contractors  for the construction of the Central Venezuelan railroad. France and Belgium  have a common ground for actiou disturbing to the peace of the little South  American republic; namely, the expulsion  of the French and Belgian ministers from  that couutry. Both governments have  protested against the expulsion and  . France will send a naval vessel to take  their envoys home. The Monroe doctrine  and its ramifications contain ample authority it is said, for the United States  to .display au active iuterest in the  threateniug attitude of Great Britain und  Germany, and while tbe probable action  of France and Belgium does not seemingly come within the scope of the doctrine,  it is understood to be the belief of this  government that all four of the powers  involved will join issue in opposition to  the United States to secure their several  ends, and such am-lgamatiou is likely  to beget a desire on the part of nil to extend their dominions. The conference at  the "White House to-day was necessarily  ofn strictly secret character, but it is  learned on good authority that nothing  definite was agreed upon.  SOME NOTES FROM VANCOUVEll.  There is at last a little stir in Vancouver and. things are perceptibly  better here. In spite of the bad times  there are a good many buildings going  up: one or two well known European  capitalists (e.g. Sir Arthur Stepney,  Bt.) are hanging about the town: the  lumber trade is reviving: two big lumber ships are loading at the Hastings  Mill: a Japanese Consul has been established here to foster trade relations  between this coast and Japan: and the  payment of some $100,0.3 to the C. P.  it. to local firms and individuals has  set a certain amount of cash in circulation. Following upon this there has  been a move amongst the principal  business men of the town and that  well known firm, the Vancouver Trust,  . Savings and Guarantee Co., has been  reorganized, the new firm being composed of the old Manager, Mr. H. T.  Ceperley,   Mr.   Charles   Loewen   and  _3______Jvp_r___aiup_bel.l, Mr���������Ceperley-  is already too well known   to  need a  word from us, but it is satisfactory to  Kootenay people to remember that  both Mr. Loewen and Mr. Campbell propose to devote a considerable amount  of their time and energy to cultivating  amongst their clients an intelligent  interest in the miningdistricts of B. C,  among which the blocan and Rossland hold such an important position.  Another firm, that of McFarland &  Mahon, is also a new combination here  and the name of Mr. Mahon is already  sufficiently known in the" Kootenay  country to' be a guarantee" for the.  active interest to be taken by this firm  in our mines. But there is not enough  notice of our greatest industry taken  by our contemporics or enough push  in our railway companies". For instance a little notice, hardly calculated  to attract attention, appeared tbe other  day in a coast, paper to the effect that  the Finch Dredging Company had  been obtaining gold at the rate of .*i!2()  an hour! their working expenses being  $20 a day 1!   "  - There have been one or two meet ings  lately in Vancouver of the prominent  business men of this city to consider  the advisability of taking steps lo rescue a share of the Kootenay trade.  This should not need much consideration,> but as such names as Oppenh-im-  oer and Tatlow and others are mentioned in this connection, something may  come of it.  A proof of the revival of faith on  | this coast is given in the reopening of  that'.avoui'ite hotel, the Manor House  of Vancouver, by probably the most  popular host on the Pacific,' Mr, John  A. Virtue, at one time manager of the  St. Jauie's Club, Montreal. The need  of a fitst-rate hotel.- at prices somewhat lower than those of the C. P. R.,  has long been felt here, and if- the- designs of the proprietors are as attractive when carried out as they appear  to be to us now, the.hotel should be a  -phenomenal   success.     Virtue   is   pe-  ., t-uliar in one thing. We have heard  of many pleasant Vices: he is the only  popular virtue we ever heard of and he  is especially popular with the travelling public. The hotel is to be opened  iu May. :   '"' -  "Which of us Mas it?  - According to the Mining aud Scientific  Press a "British Columbia mining journal  describes the formation of the Surprise  mine in the Slocau district as, follows:  ''Cambirau, principally schistose argi-  leaux lime and plutnbiferous shales with  obtnisal dykes of feldepathic and auor-  thyte porphyry." It would seem lis  though "thecompouent parts were highly  metalliferous."  TO THE ELECTORS OF  Yale - Cariboo ��������� Kootenai.  Kamloops. 28th February. 1891.  Gkntl.esij'N:���������  In response to the widely expressed  desire of representative men in various  parts of your District 1 have decided  io come forward as a candidate at the  forthcoming elect-ions, in opposition to  the present government.  As this is such an enormous district  1 am,  of course,   personally unknown  to a large number of you;   but I  may  state that I have large interests at and  j around Ducks and Kamloops, and am  j very desirous,   for  your welfare and  j mine,  to   see  this Province   pi ogress  [ more than it has done in the last, few  j yea rs.  : I am opposed to the policy of protec-  Jtioii which has been pursued for the  I last sixteen years, as being unfitted to  | (lie requirements of the country and  i benefiting the few tit the. expense of  ! t he many.  I I join in the condemnation ofthe  I corrupt manner in which the adinitiis-  :tration of tbe affairs of (he country  J has been carried" on during the time  ! I hat the present party lias been in  ' office.  j     I consider:���������  j    1. That a customs tariff,   if imposed  I at all, should only be for the purpose  ; of raising a revenue,'not  for the purpose of protection:  2. That freer trade relations with  Great Britain and the United States  would immediately benefit this country :  3. That under existing circumstances  aud the peculiar nature of the country  mining machinery should be allowed  to come in free of duty:  4. That the natural resources of the  country should be the first to be developed :  5. That in order to accomplish this  end the country should he opened up,  the rivers made navigable, and increased facilities for communication-, and  transportation afforded:  15. That the mail and other, contract-  let hy the government should be put  up to public tender:  7. That the stiicte.t economy should  be observed in the administration of  the public service, and all unnecessary  expendture should be stopped:  8. That all complaints in regard to  the disposal of government lands und  issuing (if titles should be inquiied into-and any grievances redressed, and  the surveys in the railway belt completed as quickly as possible.  As this district comprises so large  an extent of-ountry it will be impossible for me to visit every polling,  division and become acquainted with  the electors, but 1 shall make a point  of visiting as many as possible and  holding meetings for -.the purpose of  placing my views on public matters  before you, and learning from you the  local requirements of each district.  I have no objects of my own to serve  by asking you to support me. but 1  have time that lean give to promote  the interests of this District, the Province, and the Dominion, and I shall  devote it to that purpose.  For these reasons I ask your support  at the approaching Dominion Elections, and trust you will see fit to give  it to me.  Yours faithfully,  not)        HEWITT BOSTOCK.  _lSrOTIC33.
