The work is required to be. done very speedily and is an  evidence that the" company means to  go ahead.  The next thing for (lie Flail Mines to  consider is the building of a smelter  and we shall not be surprised if next  winter sees one ready for work. We  understand that; Mr. Croasdaile has  received a favourable reply from the  Premier to his request for a grant of  land.  About 70 men are employed now. at  the mine and small shipments of ore  are being made.  .At Forty-nine Creek one monitor is  at work. The pipes have arrived for  the other and are being rapidly put  into position. The recent rains and  mild weather have caused the Creek  to rise giving plenty of water for both  nozzles.  Prospectors are getting out on both  sides of thu Kootenay River below  the town attracted by the known  auriferous character of the country. ,.  KOSSLAND.  - . MINING  NOTES.

Sears  and Sons have established a new stage  line to run' between Rossland and  Northport in opposition to-the Red  Mountain Stage Line.  Thirty men are now. employed on  the grade of the Red Mountain Ry.  Co.'s line. The terminus will probably  be on the Nickel Plate bench.  It is asserted on good authority that  a matting plant will presently be  erected at Rossland.  -Mr. Win. Noyes of Butte is in town.  Dr. Hermann A. Keller has removed  from the Clifton' House and is now  installed in his new residence on Co-,  lumbia Avenue.

A gang of men are now busily employed in corduroying the Trail Creek  road. -The road will probably be open  for heavy freight in about ten days."  It is reported that the War Eagle  mine may soon change owners. No  particulars can be given for publication.  Hislop's Mining Map of Trail Creek  is now. ready for publication and will'  be issued next Monday. It ib the only  authentic and correct map of the camp  and gives (he claims to scale together  with the date of record. The map will  be published by Gilbert Ranken of  Rossland. who will superintend its  correction from time to time a. occasion may require.  TROUT LAKE.   . '  Some eight or ten companies vwill  work their quartz claims in the Trout  Lake country during the coming s'uni-  mer. The owners of the Black Prince  are expected iu as soon as the arm  opens. The owners "of the No. 25 .and  Badshot are camped on the arm{ on  their way to their mines. M. Bealon  has his men at the head of the. .arm  ready to commence work on the "Richo  group as soon as they can get up to  the claims. Ore from Trout Lake  City will be ready for shipment, as  soon as the wagon road is completed,  which we hope" will not be later than  the middle of July.  Chas. Taylor, who has been looking  after his mining interests at Trout  Lake during Ihe last few days, and J.  O. Piper, arrived al Thompson's Landing on their way to Revelstoke to-day.  Mr. Piper is rather reticent with regard to what his business is on the  main line,    o  Considerable quantities of gold are  being taken out by the placer miners  up Lardeau Creek. The snow will be  off the wagon road between Thompson's and Trout Lake by the 20th inst.���������  Kootenay Mail.  GOAT lUVI'Tt DISTRICT MINES.  LOCAL   NEWS.  Messrs. Marpole, Ducliesnay and Wilson arrived iu town by the Ainsworth  jesteiday.  Nelson bus seldom been so full of  visitors, as a reference to, our hotel lists  will show."  AVe are glad to hear that the men employed at tbe Silver King mine have resumed their contributions to the Nelson  Hospital.  Having got, a prisoner at last'some of  our sadly needed Htreet repairs are being  attended to. An eye witness says that  Constable Miles who is ou guard, does  as much work if not more thau "the  gang."  The services in the Euglish Church ou  Sunday last were very well attended, particularly the lull choral service in the  evening, at which the authem, "Praise  Ye The Lord," was well rendered. The  church was prettily decorated.'  By the train from Robson last. evening  Messrs. Miedell and Ublestad came in.  They are a delegation of Norwegian farmers who have come to inspect the laud  of the Kooteuay Reclamation" Company  with a view of establishing "a colony of  their fellow couutryuien there.  We have just received a Dew price  list from James McMillan k Co., Inc.,  200-212 First Ave. North, Minneapolis,  Minn., the largest hide aud fur dealers  in the Northwest, and it can be referred  to at this office at auy time. Their advertisement appears regularly in The  Miner.  Mr.- Munn president of the Kaslo  Slocan railway was in town on Wed-  nesday-and -left���������in- the- evening���������for-  Kaslo. He expects the contractors  for the line in via Bonner's Ferry next-  to-day when the work will be pushed forward at once.  Our,correspondent at the Kootenay  River is sending us a very interesting  account of the Goal River claims, of  which we have only room to publish  a portion each week. The district is  likely to assume considerable prominence before long.  Capt. Fitzstubbs returned from the  Kootenay Meadows on Saturday last  bringing with him an. Indian named  Nichola who was committed for 30 dtiys  for disturbing the peace. He is reported  to have been highly delighted at the  prospect of a months sojourn iu Nelson  and to have exclaimed when told he was  to come ."All right, hyu mamook hyu  muck a niuck."  The long expected performance of  the Nelson Philharmonic Society is to  (���������(une off on.Thursday next in the Fire-  hall. Tiie piece chosen, St. John's  I've, is a very good example of the  tuneful compositions by F. H. Coweu.  The music is somewhat dillicult, hut  eiTective and brilliant. The solos will  be rendered by Mesdauies. Troup  (soprano) and Goepel (contralto) and  by Messrs. Robson (tenor) and Perks  (bass.) -The chorus consists of 20  voices.

The Nelson Band will perform a selection of music during the afternoon.  Towards Duck Creek , come the  President group of mine, which com-  uise President, Lizard, Badger. Selkirk and Old Abi?. The President is  in a porphyry formation and the ore  !.- very rich, the average assay being  about 110 oz. silver, 30% coppei and  o22 gold. Considerable work litis been  ���������loneon this property, a .unnel 25 feet  long and other cutting having been  done. The cost of work would be in  i hejueighbourhood of 83,000.  The Lizard is galena in slate, forma-  t ion with a six foot, ledge of ore, assaying 05 oz. in silverand ("5 per cent. lead.  About $1,000 worth of work has been  done on this property.  The Badger has a large ledge, the ore  from  which assays 75 ozs.  silver,  _'J  per cent, lead and $7 in gold per ton.  | The work done amounts to about. $500.  |    The Selkirk assays 70 ozs. silver, 04  j per cent, lead and $3 gold  per ton.   It  I is in a lime formation and  work has  1 been done to the extent of $1,C.D in  tunneling.  The above aie owned by a Minneapolis syndicate, managed at this end  by Mr. Wigen.  The Annie Rooney is the north extension of the President and has a  good sized ledge of ore similar to that  of the main vein. Owned by S. Billings and John Fritsch.  The Cleveland, the south extension  of the President, has a well defined  vein of high grade ore and assays high.  Considerable work has been done and  the ledge keeps improving. It is owned by VV. Barrett, T. McLean and E.  Chape.  The Mascot, adjoining above, is in  slate and ha3 a good sized lead. The  owners are at present working on it  and we expect to hear any time that  they have struck it rich,  The Wisconsin has a deep shaft sunk  on the ledge, representing about $600  worth of labor, and the character of  the ore is similar to that of the President.��������� To be continued.

A Cattle Murkct for Kuinloops.���������Governm-iit  Agent at Kevelstoke.���������Fatal Accident  Near New WefitiiiiiiiHter.  A telegraph line is being built from  Nanaimo to Alberni.  A carload of frozen salmon left New  Westminister last week for New York.  There is a talk of establishing a Dominion sanitarium for consumptives at  Kamloops.  Mr. H. Bostock has been elected  President of the Kamloops Agricultural Association.  Nanaimo expects to have new  government buildings and a new school  house this year.  An investigation into the charges  against Sergeant Haywood of Vancouver has proved that the charges are  groundless.  The dispute about the Revelstoke  townsite has now been settled. Mr. A.  S. Farwell's title, which he obtained  many years ago, has been confirmed.  Two Indian women and a boy' were  killed by the fall of a tree blown down  during a severe thunder storm near New  Westmicster last wehk.  The cold storage works at Vancouver,  B. C, has begun manufacturing ice for  business purposes, and a large lot of Australian fruit has just been stored iu its  refrigerators.  An endeavour is being made to start  a cattle market at Kamloops. Buyers  from all over the province would probably find this a great convenience as  Kamloops is fairly central and it  should be a success.  The reinstatement of James" Fitzsimmons as deputy warden of the New  Westminster penitentiary has caused  much adverse comment. The Liberal-  Conservative Association of New  Westminster has passed a resolution  condemning the action.  Mr. J. D. Graham has received his  appointment as Government Agent for  the Revelstoke Division of the electoral district of West Kootenay in the  stead of J. Kirkup who has been transferred to Rossland, the appointment to  date from March 1st- 189.).  The British Columbia Board of Trade  has memorialised theDominiongovern-  inent to advance the $425,0(!3 to pay  the sealers' compensation claims, pending the settlement with the United  States, aud will also urge the construction of a telegraphic cable to conuect  with the telegraph system of Washington State.  NEWS OF THE WORLD.  GOAT KIVER..  The Indians are now quiet,  having  apparently come to the conclusion that j  it is unwise to oppose the law.   One of i  those concerned in the recent trouble,  was   tried  before Captain  Fitzstubbs!  and'sentenced   to   'SHI days  im prison-'  meut.

There  stretched on the floor was the lifeless  body of the young man. He was half  resting on his left side, the entire top of  his head blown away. By his side was a  Marlin rifle, which was the weapon the  young man had used to kill bimseif.

Dow was the son of A. It. Dow, a re  tired capitalist of Clarmout, N. H., and a  nephew of Mrs. A. M. Cannon, formerly  of San Francisco... AVhen he first came  here he moved in the best society, but  for the past year he hud beeu the 'lender  of a fast set. Two months ago he met  Nora Marsh, au actress who is playing  an engagement in this city, and who is  the wife, of Silas Robinson, an actor.  For her he conceived the wildest infatuation, aud three times he sought to take  his life because ot her.' The couple went  to the Auditorium last night, after the  play, on the way home, he proposed marriage aud was rejected. He then left her  and going to his room he ended his existence.

Whitney's mission does  not fail of its purpose much more will  be known of the wilds of British North  America, its big game and its human  denizens, a year from now than has yet  been told, says the New York World.  Whitney has started from New York on  his hazardous tour of exploration, aud is  today well on his way ��������� toward the Canadian northwestern frontier, where he  will get together the outfit' necessary for  the extensive trip he is about to undertake. He expects to reach Edmonton,  the northermost poiut touched by the  Cauadiau Pacific railroad, and the terminus of a spur some 200 miles north of  the main line, ou Monday. Within a  few days after that he will have started  northward on his journey through the  great unknown territory of the British  northwest.  From Edmonton Whitney expects to  travel due north about 900 miles, crossing  Lake Athabasca aud Great Slave lake.  Unless uulooked for impediments alter  his plans he will continue ou north,  skirting along just east of parallel, with  the Rocky mountains, mauy miles beyond the Arctic, circle, until he gets  almost, as far north as Coronation gull.  There the line of march will swerve off  to the east and the young explorer will  skirt'the northern coast of the continent,  finally comiug home again dowu the  we.'lutly shore of the Hudson's Bay, and  reaching civilization ��������� again at Lake  Winnipeg.

The magnitude of these  metals may be more easily comprehended  when the cubic measurement is. given.  The gold cast into a solid cube would  not exceed twenty-two feet, while the  silver Would not- exceed sixty-six feet  The gold could be. contained almost in  any ordinary room, while au average  city business house would .accommodate  tho silver. Adopting the single standard,  to the average miud this would seem to  be a very small amonnt of .money to divide  up aud circulate among the 1,3.0,000,000  people estimated to exist on this little  sphere of ours. - '  CHINESE  MONEY.

"Why; to be in the waxworks," said  he.  "True", true!" I cried, but added sadly, "but ..it's,, almost, impossiblo to  achieveunless you commit a murder."  "I don't know about that," said Jack  Dexter, who had up to that moment  taken no part in the conversation.' "I'm  in a waxworksshow-myself, uot in London, you know, but���������well' have any of  . you fellows visited Petersburg?''  We, all admitted that we. had not.  "Ah,: then you haven't seen my image,''  said Jack regretfully. "It's in Mme.  Marribon's famous exhibition there."  "But, _ny dear Jack," said the colo-  hel,"how in the world did it como  about?"  ..'J'lt's: rather- a curious story," said  Jaok.

She was married to a  :*frun*py wretch, who held a high position in the police and treated her, upon  ttiy word, little' better than if she had  been a nihilist. I pitied her. I niustad-  initr-I an. among gentlemen���������that I  .'also admired her, and that a warm, although perfectly honorable,. attachment  > sprang up between. us. Her husband  was, however, savagely and unreasonably jealous, and what with him, his  spies and his mother (the worst spy of  'all)' it'was with tbe utmost difficulty  that I succeeded in seeing anything of  the princess. - I dared.not to call at. her  house more; than once.a month, and I  was driven���������- positively driven���������to a  thing for which I entertain the greatest  dislike. I was, I say, compelled to make  arrangements which insured my being  present at varioua places of public resort���������pioture galleries and the like���������at  the times which the princess selected for  -visiting them. > By these means we were  enabled to enjoy many most, charming  conversations, and it was my privilege  to support and sustain the princess in  the*very trying'circumstances in which,  her lot; was cast I did this, I need not  say, at very considerable risk. I was  not blind to the danger I ran. Her.hus-  ���������band wielded large and secret powers.!  Save that I was au English' subject, I  Was'entirely powerless against him, and  it would have been a long time before  the voice of a prisoner iu the fortress of  Peter and Paul reached the cars of the  .foreign office. However, I took the risk.  Nadia needed mo, aud that was enough.  "Butof all our rendezvous there was  none which we found more convenient  and suitable . than Mme. Marribon's  waxworks exhibition. It was a long  way from' the princess' residence, in an  unfashionable quarter of tho town, and  was frequented mainly by persons who  did uot'inove in society and wero quite  -unfamiliar with faces as well known in  the great world as those of the princess  - and E-ysolf. ' Our only danger arose from  'the maidservants of our acquaintances  'and from' the' police, but by avoiding  ��������� the gallery in which the figures of mur-  'derers and other criminals were exhibited, wo reduced this peril to a minimum,  .���������for of course the servants wereat-  tracted by. the criminals, and the police  ; were attracted by the servants: Our favorite nook was* beside a group of- sa-  "-"���������tnta'of' European reputation and immediately behind the prime ministers of  Europe. This spot we usually had quite  to ourselves.  ?'? Well, one day we were sitting thore.  Poor Nadia had for a moment; forgotten  her troubles and was talking with tho  rare wit. and brilliancy which marked  her conversation when she was in good  .spirits.   I was keeping up the ball of  , talk as well as I could and was gazing,  not, I hope, too passionately, at her in-  ' comparable complexion and magnificent  dark  eyes���������like  deep' water  seen   by  moonlight, thoy were.  Dear, dear!"  ' Jack paused for a moment and took a  ,slp from-his glass.    We sipped sympathetically,   and he regained  his cpm-  posuie.  -Suddenly, just as I was telling the  'princess a-most"' interesting occurrence  which had befallen me on the journey  out and brought me into contact with a  .person whose name you would all know  'if I wero to mention it, the princess  gave a startled little cry.  " 'What's the matter, my dearest  nrlnoess'.' I asked.  "She pointed to the other end of the  gallery.  "'It's my husband's,.moth'eri' she  whispered. 'She must have had a suspicion aud followed us. ' What shall I  do?'  "I looked and perceived a largo and  stately old lady in gold eyeglasses approaching us. Thoro was bur one door  to the gallery, and the approach to that  was barred ,by the priucoss' mother-in-  law. .. In another momont she would be  upon us, aud although I knew her to be  nearsighted I could not hope that sho  would fail to recognize Nadia. If something wore not done at once, wo woro  ruinod.  "Now, I never boast or make myself  out cloverer than I am. I admit freely  that I was at my wits' end. I could do  nothing and think of nothing. Our salvation was due not to me, but to the  quick woman's wit which lay in Nadia's  perfect little head.  " 'Quickl' she whisporod. 'Step up  on the platform���������there���������besido Kant.  Fold your arms. Frown. That's right.  What's that society you told me you belonged to���������the one that has the animals?'  " 'Tho Zoological,' I answered.  " 'Yes', that's it.   Stand quito still.'  "I obeyed'her, and she seized from  the feet of Isaac Newton a placard bearing a notice in Russian and French: 'It  is strictly forbidden to touch the figures.  Offenders will be prosecuted with tho  utmost rigor of the law' (not a light  matter; mind you, in Russia). Sho propped the board'np against my legs, whisper cdi ? Be sure you don't wink!' ahd  with a gracious,winning sinile advanced  to meet her mother-in-law. I had never  admired'her more than at that moment.  " 'Why1, have you heard of it, too?'  she exclaimed. '  " 'Nadial   What are you doing here?  Are you-alone?'  " 'Of course, dear. I came to seo the  modol.  Didn't you?'  "'What model, child?'  " 'Why, of our friend Mr. Dexter.*  " 'That young man?'  .   " 'Yes.    Don't' you know, he's oue of  the greatest zoologists iu tho world, and  Marribon has just put up a model of  him. Look, hore it is!'  "I don't know that I'm more nervous  than other people, but it was, I confess,  a trying moment when the old lady put  -up her eyeglasses and stared at. mo.  Dear Nadia stuck- her pretty head ou  one sido in a critical way and said:  " 'I don't call it very good. Do you?  It's so stiff and unnatural.'  "The old lady said nothing. She came  ' a step nearer and raised her parasol.  The old wretch was going.to poke mo!  " 'Oh, .but you mustn't touch it!'  cried Nadia, turning pale. 'Look at the  notice!'  "The old lady advanced her parasol.  But'at this moment ono of the polico  appeared at her elbow.  " 'You. mustn't touch the figures,  madame,' said he, and I blessed him  for every word.  "Never a word did the old princess  speak. She glared at me, she glared at  Nadia, and she glared at tho policeman,  and she turned round and walked out of  the gallery. The. policeman followed  her. Nadia softly clapped her hands. I  sprang forward, seized her slim fingers  and kissed them.  " 'Oh, we're not safe yet,' she said.  'My mother-in-law suspects. Luckily  the place closes in a quarter of an hour,  aud she can't do anything tonight, and  the prince won't be back from Moscov  till the day after tomorrow. Jack theio  must be a real model of you by then.'  "I was amazed, but I listened to her  instructions. Taking out her purse, she.  pressed it on mc.

Marribon's surprise and swept away her  scruples. I admitted that she might, not  unnaturally, never havo hoard of Pro  fessor Doxter. but I told her that the  name was a household word in all cultivated circles iu England and America,  and I promised her to pay all expenses  and 10,000 rubles if a portrait model  of the groat zoologist stood beside Kant  in 36 hours. The result was that by (i  o'clock in the evening I was sitting in  au armchair and young M. Marribon  was taking a oast of my features in  plaster of paris. At this moment, however, thero occurred an interruption  which, if it had como a little sooner,  would havo ruinodtho wholo affair.  As 1 sat, covered with tho plaster, except where holes were left for sight aud  breathing, I saw, to my consternation,  the same policoman who had been in  the gallery in tho afternoon enter thc  room. He brought with him an official  notice. *  " 'Order from the minister of the interior,' he said. 'You're to closo tomorrow���������day of interccssiou for tho  safety of the czar ordered, and all public exhibitions to be closed.'  "I rejoiced to hoar that. It smoothed  my way, but I wished  the policeman  would take himself off.  ���������   " 'Hello!'  he said.    'Who  have we  here?   I must have his name, please.'  '' 'This is Mr. Dexter, the groat zoologist. '  " 'Who's he? -Come, M. Marribon, I  must have that stuff off his face, you  know.. Why, he might bo a nihilist, or  anybody you like, and me none tho  wiser, with that stuff on him.'  " 'But, my dear sir,' pleaded Marr.  hon, 'the stuff won't come off. If I try  to remove it before it hardens, it will  tear off his skin with it.' That is the  case with plaster of paris, you know,  colonel.  " ;Can't help it,' said the brute. 'I've  got my orders, and no distinction is  made as to the effect on the skin. I  must see his face.'  " 'Oh, impossible!' cried Marribon.  'It would be a barbarity! It will be dry  In 15 minutes.'

Speaking as woll as I could through  the mouth hole, I suggested that we  wero probably all thirsty, and I hold  out some rubles. Would the gentleman  fetch some brandy? He wavered aud  fell. He was gone live minutes. When  he returned, my faoo was uncovered  and Marribon richer by some valuablo  instructions aud a couple of thousand  moro rubles.  " 'Why, you've got a figure of him  Already!' cried tbe policeman.  " 'Certainly wo had, but Mr. Dextir  was not satisfied with it, so I have  taken advantago of his visit here to tako  a fresh cast.'  "The man looked suspicious.  " 'Where's tho old oue?" he asked.  " 'It's molted down,' said Marribon  suavely as he poured out the brandy.  "That peril was past. My next visit  was to Marribon's advertising agents.  By noxt morning we flooded the town  with posters, announcing the new and  interesting addition to the exhibition.  I received scores of congratulations on  my distinction, and also ou my singular  modesty, for nobody in Russia had ever  heard of my fame as a zoologist before.  I accepted the kind words of my friends  with gratitude, and I invited a largo  company to lunch on tho following day,  proposing that we should afterward go  and view tho model. My guests included  Prince and Princess X. aud the prince's  mother.  "Behold us, then, tho next day iu the  gallery! Nadia and I were somewhat  nervous, the rprineo as glum as usual,  the old lady very curious, and the rest  of the company politely interested.  There was the modol, and I am bound  to say that it was not a very good oue.  "'Yes,.'said Nadia, 'it is stiff and  awkward. I said so before to your mother, prince.'  " 'Did you?' ho growled.  "Then the old lady, who had been  examining the figure carefully, -burst  out in acid triumph:  " 'It's not tho figure I saw! What's  the meaning of this? The ono I saw had  a red flower in its buttonhole. Nadia,  what's the meaning of this?'  "The poor girl flushed crimson, hut I  iutorposod with groat suavity:  "You are perfectly right, princess."

" 'It is so, monsieur,' said Marribon,  who was accompanying our distinguished party.  " 'But,' cried tho old lady, 'tho one  I saw was a thousand times better. Ib  was most lifelike.' .  ""���������OhTd-d you think so, dear?' protested Nadia.  "Suddenly the prince turned furiously to Marribon.

" 'And,'' ho pursued, 'that a trick has  been played, and that the pretended figure was Mr. Doxter himself, who undertook lihis deception for motives not  hard to guess,' and ho stared cruelly at  tho hapless Nadia.

The well sustained nnd increasing  price of silver is naturally causing  great satisfaction in this district. The\  daily bulletinspiiblished by Tak" MINER  and posted in tbe batiks, hotels, steamboats, post ollice and other public  places attract u great deal of at ten tion.  Eai'h hteAv-rise is greeted With acclamation. "'  "The 'motive power in the rise is un-  4ue'_tl6nably* the prospect of peace be-  tween China and Japan, coupled with  "the bimetallist moveru.nt in Europe.  Latest reports inform us that the  tertos of peacehave now been agreed  upon and* tbat the war is at an end.  A- great deal .depends upon Japan's  future policy. It is rumoured that she  'will seize'the*opportunity-to-put' her  cnrfenvy ��������� 'upon *- gold - bs������is. On the  Wther it is asserted ��������� in well informed  quarters * hat* Japan' will scarcely-; attempt-to adopt a* currency no- foreign  to the habits of her people, or which  will destrjby the advantageous position-  she now occupies in regard to the  European and Indian Exchanges. A  New York financier, who is considered  tb be one of the best authorities on the  matter 'is' quoted *-_.-* skying: '-"Not-  witltatahdintf what ha* been- said to  the contrary, the Japanese government  does not desire to place its currency  Upon ��������� gold basis,",?n.ither''do__ it'be-  Upve that it would'*b������9 possible < for  Ohina to arrange with European ban-  JT-ru to deplete .the gold treasuries of  ������������������' Europe to the extent of tbe indemnity  Which it will demand.

As its banktog credit will  bring them in only about I per  cent, interest in Europe, and as its silver debt is costing 8 to 8 per cent, in  Japan, it will certainly" be to'the" interest of the Japanese government to  buy, a* fMthu-clt.il be done judiciously,  silver with its gold credit, to repay.its  int������rn������tt������an.  " V--J!he"expression'of English* critics of  the belief that Japan will go on a gold  basis is father to 'their' Wishr -The' endeavor of the English gpvernmeat to  |������h-ce India upon ���������'������'��������� gold Im������������b* has so  far been a-.most-dismal-failure.-Should  , J������tf)������ii l-lace ber-ftnance. upon a gold  basis, she would immediately lose this  advantage and place it in the bands of  her principal rival, China, which must  continue upon a silver basis. The  Japanese '������������������'��������� are ; apparently shrewd  1 enough' to< see ' this situation and to.  govern themselves thereby."  ���������The qiu-8-ion-'of the'amount of the  indemnity naturally affects the issue.  Tf Japaii follows the example of Germany in 1871 she will ask for sufficient  'to cover"1the ' # h. ire* cost-ofs the' war.

It is estimated that the customs receipts of  China,"* which- are her only security,  where they finda'-T.arty welcome and  where tbey:--n joy all the-advantages  thatacceruetothem as British subjects.  How foolish then is'-the'cry that at.  tempts to exclude fronT British Columbia everyone not actually born in  a country- < on 'the -other side - of - the  American Continent. We feel" sure,  that Canadians in general must be  healthy ashamed of a mad'who attempts to make them parties to so,  selfish a course of action. We im->  agine that the-man who is responsible  for these foolish paragraphs has never  been into any other part of the British.  Einpirethanthat in Which he finds him-'  self now, and is' therefore einbued with  the natural ignorance that-eonies of  such ahole-in-the-corner existence. -- It  would he a liberal education to'hiiri to  travel, to go far and wide over' the  world and see his-fellow Britishers;  (if indeed he has the proud right to.  call- theni fellows) pushing on!, their  empire in every  land under'the sun.  All over this great empire, of which'  we'are acquainted with a' considerable,  portion,men from all parts of Her:  Majestv's dominions will be found  working shoulder to shoulder the 'best  of comrades. There is not a mining  camp in South Africa, in India, '?'in  Australia or in New Zealand where'  you will not fiiid^ men chatting about  spots scattered-over the whole world.  They anr as well acquainted with Collins street Melbourne, as they are with  Government street Victoria, or the  avenue of oaks that leads up to Gov-:  eminent House at Cape Town or "The  Beach" at Wellington. '  -How-much'better-to work side by  side; each man striving to lie foremost  for the honour and glory of his native  province, acclaiming the winner with  honest friendship not girding at him'  with envious spite.

The Monometallists are riot-  going to give.up without a struggle  and very great efforts are being iuade  to counteract the agitations and efforts  ofthe supporters' oft h _' do uble' standard. We take the following from  Bradstreets : "While politicians here  and abroad are devoting a considerable  amount of time to* the 'discussion of,  the attitude of Germany in relation to  the "question1 of a" monetary* standard,'  it is worthy of note that the commercial classes show a decided preference  for the continuance'of .the gold stand:  ard. There Wilis formed .this-week in,  Berlin an Association for the protection of the Gold Standard, which comprises a number of inaritifaettirers And  merchants distributed throughout Germany. " 'The Trade - Congress,* -which  adopted*unanimously ������t resolution declaring that commercial and industrial  circles must regard every -' weakening-:  of the well oidered-gold standard in  Germany as a fundamental-injury to  German economic life. At the meeting of the congress oh Thursday it was  announced that all the'chambers of  commerce of the empire except four  bad declared ih1 favor of a gold standard.  A NEW COMPANY.  i  " We have received the prospectus of  the British Columbia Gold Fields Bx-  ploiatioo and Concessions Company,'.  Limited. -The- company is formed;  tor the purpose of taking ��������� hold- of'  miniug properties, getting them into,  shape and putting them-on to the English and other markets. In this it is;  following in the footsteps of companies;  formed for the same purpose in South  Africa many of which have been very  successful. The field for such.,a concern'.it British Coluhibia is obvious.  Asa rule English and American investors will only look at mines in full  working order for Which they have to,  and arepr-pared t������Vpay a long price,  but there are many opportunities for  investment which are only open tb  men on the spot, who know what is  going on and the character of the men  and tbe mature of" "the property they  are"dealing* with." Of this the' War  Eagle at Trail Creek is a striking instance. ;' Purchased only a few months  ago for (we think) about $28,000 it is  now -worth "over a million. --There are  doubtless -plenty of-other.-properties  with which the same might be done,  but which* would' hardly attract! the  notice'of English or American .syndicates. The danger which the public  have to be "guarded against in enterprises of this kind- is that they-are  sometime* formed to amalgamate and  foist off upon unsuspecting investors a  number of ��������� worthless properties. A  glance at the names on the directorate  ofthe new cotttpuny dispels any doubt  on that point.  -With regard to the prospectus itself  it-is evidently- not-the work-of-any old  hand at company financing.

(115)  "��������� A war of some little magnitude is  taking place in Northern India. A  Britishforce of no less than U.OOO men  including six English regiments is- in  the field. It is a somewhat noteworthy  fact that operations on so large a scale'  can take place in one part of the Empire Without* lhe 'slightest-knowledge  of it reaching another. It is not impossible that many of us here in Kootenay have cousins or even brothers  matching today against the wild tribes  that inhabit' the' fastnesses of the  Himalayas.  In that con n try there is a-town called  Cbittal; iu which was a small British  garrison. - A* mountain chief,- Umra  Khan, occupied the town, driving  out Dr. Robertson, the British Agent,  who took refuge iii the' fort. ��������� A small  force eff HO Sikhs was sent tb'his relief  under Capt. Ross and' Lieut.; Jones..  They were met'hy an 'opposing force'  of hundreds of mountaineers'and were  cut to pieces. -The only survivors were  Lieut., Jones and 14 men, who made  good their retreat to a place called  Boni. On the arrival of the news at  Calcutta the Viceroy, Lord Elgin, determined to make' an'example" of the  insurgents and sent 14,000 men under  General Sir Robert Low against them.  They met the rebels' numbering some  12,000, iu the Malahdrai Pass and gave  them what they wanted, a good licking.  THREE NE IV RA IL IVA VS.  Not the least among the signs that  Kootenay is1 going-., ahead is the fact  that two uew railways are actually in  bahd, namely the Red.'Mountain line  and the Kaslo-Slocan line, while Messrs.  Marpole and Ducliesnay are at Three  Forks casting about for some method  by which their line can be made to  crawl up but of the hole and: reach  Sandon, the heart of t he district. The  obvious way of course to anybody but  an engineer orji townsite agent, would  woiild'no-'jus-tlfy a loan-bf more than [be to go through New-Denver',.d: Si!  (150,000,000. some part of which would  probably be in silver. Both countries  have become liable during -the war for  large suhi's' for ships "and munitions' of  war to'Bufropean countries,"--and' these,  debts which will come out of the loan  will have to be paid in gold.  T/ME TO END IT.  Our contemporary has of late been  talking a great deal abdfif ''-fof-igtters"'  as-it.is pleased to designate other  rt6ih.b'ers-bf -the ��������� British;' Ein pi re resi-  den't in Canada. 'As usual the journal  in question displays only its. ignorance  and narrow.'__ind_dri-s_"**by so'^ doing.';  A foreigner:is ������n alien the legkrdefin-  ation of which, by such authorities  as Kent, Wharton'and Bubrill is  "one born outof the allegiance of the  _-rng*" ' W-rfiSTeB tde-c'ribes- it-as "a*  f6r_ign'biffr'n--r'e_'iae*ht of a'"crttihtry!" in  which he does not possess the privileges of a citizen." The term applies  to:':o^r���������"American r cousins"''r-������ld-rit  amongst us but not to ether Britishers  be they Australians, Africanders or  Englishmen/' These happy p_ople'ahd'  Canadians thanks to tbe wide-spread  energy 6f the-, ice "to -which they belong,-'have the privilege of living ia  _my 'quarter of the globe' they", please,'  The country through which this expedition had to pass was not an easy  one to take an army through. The  march i������ described ;*by an; American  paper as an arduous' and brilliant exploit. The Pass of Chandar-is 12,000  feet high (about 3,1*00 feet'higher than  the tops of the .highest mountains in  this country.) It is impassible to  beasts of burden, consequently the  men had to carry the Held and mountain guns on their' shoulders. The  way. led through.deep snow and- the  cold was intense. ~ The, troops, many  of. theni'Natives and 'all accustomed  to the burning plains:of India, suffered  severelyfrbm frostbite, but they never  wavered.  - This is not a story of some military  expedition "of years, ago. - As-a matter  of; tact it took place only the week before last and it is hoped by this time  that Dr. Robertson" has been' relieved  auA'tha't't he-expedition is on its home-  Ward way. 'It1' is" something' to1, be  proud of that we belong to the same  nation as these men who so. indomitably carry the British flag-through  those wild and rugged Himalayan  passes.  The appointment of Mr. Gully to the  office of Speaker of the House of Com-  mons^was Strenuously opposed by' the  Conservatives and is contrary to the accepted usages of<tbe- British Pariiatoeht.  Both sides of the Hous. usually unite-to  elect some man of known ability- and .remarkable for his impartiality and evenly  balanced mind., Mr. Gully is a red hot  radical and an but und out Home Ruler.  The Seattle Post Intelligencer says:  "By mining men Spokane is regarded as  a central distribution point of importance,  ranking with Btitte, Salt Lake, Deuver aud  Leadville. Its reputation has beeu gained through persistent effort,in keeping  the mineral resources of its" section before the world." The last sentence  contains a moral. How is tbe same to be  done for Nelsou ? Obviously by means  of its newspapers. Therefore support  your local journals.  verton and theu switch back along the  face ofthe hills on the south side of  Carpenter Creek. There are vague  talks'of switchbacks up the North Fork  and' to* heaven knows- where, but it  will probably be found that an electrical railw������y will be, constructed right  up the gulch.

A. T."Durant, who is also the librarian of the church and the secretary of  young people's society of the church.  On April 7 Miss Lamont disappeared.  Diligent search failed to reveal any trace  of her. The last per.-on seen in her company was W. II. T Durant, who, it appears, had beeu on friendly terms with  the missing girl.  On Saturday morning the mutilated  body of Minnie Williams was fouud iu  the library of the Emanuel " Baptist  church on Bartlett street. The girl had  been assaulted and her reraaius were  cut and hacked, the girl having evidently  died from loss of* blood. On further  examination it was found that she had  been gagged by the assailant tearing oil"  part of her underclothing and thrusting  it down her throat with a sharp stick,  badly lacerating the tongue: Two witnesses state that they saw a young man  and a young woman,-the former answering the description of Durant and the  latter that of Minnie Williams, enter the  church.  As soon as the news became known  immense crowds surrounded the church  and had to be kept back by the police.  The chief of police sent for Rev. Dr.  Gibson, pastor of the church, aud the  report became current that he had beeu  accused of the crimes and had been arrested Great crowds surged to Dr. Gib-  sou's house, and the excitement grew  intense. It spread all over the city.  Extra papers were gotten out, and thousands of people nocked to the scone from  all over the city. The rumor of arrests  was later denied, aud it became known  that Dr. Gibson and the sexton of the  church.had .merely beeu called before  the police to tell what they knew.  AEKEST OF   J.UBANT.  At 5 o'clock came the news that Durant had been arreBted at Walnut Creek,  on the road to Mount Diablo. He was  caught by Detective Anthony, who left  in pursuit of him this morning. The  detective and his* prisoner left on the  next train for San Francisco, where they  arrived this evening. A large crowd hail  gathered at the ferries to see the suspected murderer come!iu, but a detachment of police was in waiting, and they  kept back the crowd. Durant was hustled into a patrol wagon aud whirled  away to the city prison, where, he was  locked up.  Further mystery is added to the affairs  of Emanuel Baptist church by the report that Mrs. Ella Forsythe, who has  been missing for a week, \va. also a member of the parish of the fatal place of  worship. Her husband, who has been  searching diligently for her, says she left  home to go to the beach lo gather shells.  She has never been since seen or heard  of, and it is surmised that she may have  shared the fate of Blanche Lamont and  Minnie Williams.  One of the promising sections of  East Kootenay is the Dibble group in  a gulch of the Kocky" mountains, 10  miles from Fort Steel, discovered in  1890. The ore is gray copper, carrying  gold and anUinoiiial silver. The tunnel is in iii feet, exposing an ore shute  two feet in width. Oie could be shipped from this averaging 300 ounces in  silver, $30 in gold, and 12 per cent  copper.  CH-KCH NOTJ-KS.  Sunday, April 21st, 1805.  Methodist    Chubch.
