Creek all operations  in.the nature of dead work and removing tbe old ground which had previously been turned over are now finished, and as the riffle blocks in some  places want renewing it has been decided to have*,a clean-np, after which  the full power of both monitors will be  turned on to new ground. Indications  are not wanting that the anticipations  of the owners of this little property  will be realized.'  __t_tlie'"Poorniranro'n--Tnesday last a  very rich pocket was struck in one of  the stones Several, hundred dollars  worth ot specimens were carried out,  after the shot, in a handkerchief.  The right-of-way for the Silver.King  tramway is becoming a marked feature  in the landscape. A broad swath  through the bush is gradually creeping  tip to the crest of the hill.  NEW DENVER.  An aerial tramway will probably be  built to haul out ore from the Noble Five.  Nels Nelsou has sold a third of the  Evening Star a claim on"Springer Creek  adjoining the Morning Star, to Mr. "William Tliomlin.on.  McGillivcry auk Shannon are reported  to have a good showing of six feet of dry  ore iu their claim ou Ten Mile.  Report credits A. Harris, n with a ledge  50 feet iu width on his "recently staked  claim on Eight Mile. 17 feet of the ledge  have yielded an average assay of 885 in  gold.   -  The Loudon Carriage Factory of Vancouver has secured an order for half a  dozen ore wagons for this district.  A specimens taken from the Morning  Star on Springer Creek, assayed ������314 in  gold, and 8,to 15 ounces in silver  ������ GOAT BIVER.  Messrs. Jacques * Schmitzer opened a  new store at Oekonook and to celebrate  the occasion gave a hop.ou Friday evening, which was attended by all the young  people in the valley. This young city is  going ahead and with the Great Northern  railroad making it their terminus in this  direction it should soon become a town  of importance.'  There will be a great celebration at the  Boundary (a joint concern for 1st' and  4th) on the 4th of July. Committees have  been appointed to carry out the arrangements and subscriptions have been received to a verv respectable amount.  There will be a ba'seball match match between BoDner's Ferry and Oekonook  teams, horse racing, swimming and other  matches, etc, besides a liberal display in  the fireworks line, to be Eollowed up in  the evening with a grand ball. The  steamboat Halys has been chartered to  :convey.BoDner's Jerry people to the line  and it is expected that the greater part  . of the population of. that flourishing  town will be on ban d to join in the fun.  TKA.IL CREEK.  The directors of the War Eagle Co.  have declared a second dividend of ten  cents a share, amounting altogether to  ������50,000.   The first dividend of six cents  a share was paid in March last. This  first dividend repaid to shareholders  the original price of ilieir shares. These  further dividends are pure profit. It  must be borne in mind l hat this money  has been earned by the mine during a  time of restricted output owing to bad  roads and other causes. The directors  expect in in the future to be able to  pay quarterly dividends of .$50,000  each.  The wagon road to Columbia Mountain is now complete and ore will be  shipped from the North Star early in the  week.  A board of school directors have been  organized. The directors are R.J. Bealey,  William M. Newton aud R. Hunter.  The Butte has been bonded for $10,-  000.  The St. Mary and St. Juan have been  bonded for $20,000 to V. D. Williamson.  The St. Mary is in the copper belt and  the ore appears to carry a large per cent-  age of that metal. F. S. Algiers has  brought in some fine rock from the  Puzzle, which lies close to the St. Mary.  The samples appear to contain about 30  per ceut. of malachite.  Chester Glass has returned from  Spokane.  John R. Sfcussi will bring suit against  Joe Brown for a half share in the St.  Louis, which was bonded a few days ago  to W. L. O'Connell.  Nick Jerry, the locator of the Pari.  Belle,   has   returned.  We are to have three mails a week  now, Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday,  both iucoming and out going.  i)  The drinking water problem is still unsolved. In a month from now Centre  Star Creek will not be sufficient to supply the town. Water is already being  sold by the bucketful.  Mike Sullivan was in town on Sunday.  He brought in some specimens of ore  from the Maid of Erin, of which property  he gives a good account. Some of the ore  has assayed as high as $60, but the average is probably below $30. The ledge has  been uncovered on the Robert E. Lee,  and the vein at the time of writing is  about two feet in width. The highest  assay at present is $67.80, but a fair  average would probably be about $34,  Sullivan and Dunn are now developing  the Hill Top, which adjoins the Robert  E. Lee.   The prospect atjpreseut is good.  David Stussi has sold the High Ore to  A. B. Roiltou for $3,000 and some blocks  of stock in tbe company which is being  formed to work the property.  Thomas Barry, one of the employees at  the Nelson Sawmill Company's mill, was  seriously hurt Thursday. His leg became  entangled in some manner in the belting  and a compound fracture was the result.  Barry was not "badly bruised and cut  about the face aud neck." as reported in  the local prints.   He is doing well,  Mr. L. K. Armstrong, the editor of the  Northwest Mining Review, was in Ross-  hind last week. Mr. Armstrong visited  most of the larger mines and appeared  much pleased with what he saw.  Every one is talkiug of the prospect of  the smelter being built at Trail Landing.  If a'smelter cannot be built at Rossland  it seems that Trail Landing would be the  next most suitable spot. Why Rossland  should not be selected does uot appear.  Mr. Rolfe arrived ou Saturday, and it  is expected that the electric' light plant  will soon be installed and the dismal oil  lamps will be thiugs of the past in our  -8tores-and,places-oLbusiDess,_-   John Swift, the owner of the Musty  Hie, brought iu some ore yesterday  which appears to contain a large percentage of nickel. The ore is now -in your  correspondent's hands for analysis and  will be reported next week.  The Kootenay, Tip Top and North  Star are being rapidly developed into,  mines. The ledge as now uncovered at  the upper tunnel on the Kootenay is fully  forty feet iu with.' Twenty-five meu are  working on the property and a, road is  being-built from' Columbia mountaiu to  Rossland. Of the three claims the North  Star is probably the. prettiest to the  prospectors' eagle eye.  MINING  NOTES.  (From our exchanges.)   ���������    -  From Nanaimo comes the news that a  company to be known as the Nanaimo-  Rosslaud Mining Company, Ltd., is being formed for the purpose of mining in  the Kooteuay country. The capital stock  of the compan> is placed at 3500,000 in  shares of $1 per share. - It is only intended to issue $25,000 worth of stock for the  present. The company ia to be formed  aud the shares divided within sixty days.  Hall and McCormiek, who were grubstaked by the other partners, were out  only a few days when they ran on to the  big showing, and it was less than,a week  before the ground was snapped up.  Development work will be commenced  on Monday. -j  .   Thirty-seven claims were recorded  at  Nakusp'last week.  Messrs. Wiebert and Johnson have  sold their hydranlicingproperty on Quesnelle river to a French syndicate for $30,-  000. A Seattle engineer will get out  plans for the ditches and buildings at  once. The amount of gold bearing  gravel is estimated at 18,000,000 yards.  CHURCH NOTICES.  Sunday, June 23rd, 1895.  Presbyterian Church. Services  at 11 a. m. and? p. m. Sunday School  (Union) at 2.30.

The steamers of the Australian-Canadian service now call at Auckland N. _. on  the way.  The Summer Assizes opened at Nelson on Wednesday, the lilth inst., before His Honour Judge Wulkem.  THE GRAND JUBY  was empanelled as follows: H. E.  Croasdaile (foreman), John Keen, T. J.  Lendruui, T. G. Proctor, -A. J. Marks,  F. J, Finucane, Alexander Aikenhead,  G. W. Richardson, T. Allen, W. A.  Jowett, E. A. Hodgins, Thos. Madden,  W. J. Teetzel, Jacob Dover, G. O. Buchanan, John Hamilton.  In his charge to the Grand Jury His  Lordship congratulated them on the  fact that there were only two cases for  them to try, which was a sign that law  and order were well maintained in  Kootenay. The credit for this state of  affairs was due to the juries who carried out their duties firmly and honestly in a somewhat striking contrast to  the way in which juries across the line  did theirs. He then treated them to a  little history of the prices of commodities at Cariboo in the early days and  to a small lectu.e on the ore formations at Trail Creek and dismissed them  to consider the indictments against  Frank Hughes for blackmail, and  James Westgate for manslaughter.  The Jury having retired to their room  returned in a few minutes with a true  bill against Hughes.  On being called the accused failed to  put in an appearance, and the Attorney General asked that his hail should  be estreated. His sureties were Dr.  Lambert, and Mr. W. H. Whittaker, a  barrister, both of Kamloops. - The  Judge made some remarks upon the  unusual case of a barrister going bail  for a prisoner.  The Court adjourned at noon until  two p. ni., when the Grand Jury  brought in a true bill against James  Westgate for manslaughter. In order  to avoid, if possible, the necessity of  locking the jury, who will have to sit  on this case, up all night. His. Lordship adjourned the Court until 9 a. ui.  on Thursday.  MANSLAUGHTER.  James Westgate was indicted for the  manslaughter of Hugh McLaughlin at  Rossland, on the 20tn February last.  The following were the Jury: A. H.  Clements (foreman), _?.. J. Elliott, D.  Taylor, Roderick McCreigh, W. Broad-  foot, S. Mills, E. B. Brown, Jas. MacDonald, G. R. G. O'Driscoll, Ernest  Kilberg, A. J. Gerard, S. Toye.  The Attorney-General prosecuted on  behalf of the Crown and the prisoner  was defended by Messrs. J. H. Bowes.  J. H. Elliott, and R. B. Kerr.  The Attorney-General shortly opened the case for the Crown, relating the  story of tho affair, and called  Joseph Edward Armstrong,  a carpenter, who saw both the  prisoner and the deceased on 20th  February, early in the morning; do-  ceased was stopping at Doc Phelps'  bouse, near the prisoner's at Sour  Dough Alley. Witness drew & sketch  plan of the locality; deceased asked  witness to help him down with the  foundation of the cabin, which was lying about 1C0 or 200 feet from prisoner's cabin (indicating spot on plan).  Witness and other men carried the  foundation down and placed it close to  prisoner's shack. Prisoner came along  and set a saw clamp down on the piece  of ground and stood by it. They carried the foundation right up to where  the saw clamp was, prisoner did not  move. McLaughlin put out his hand  to push-the saw-clamp away.-^ Prisoner  struck McLaughlin with his left hand,  hitting him on the head, and  his hat came oft*. McLaughlin said:  "I take you men to witness that he  struck me." Prisoner said "If l had  both hands I would lick both of you."  This was said to Ferguson and McLaughlin, witness then left the scene.  Cross-examined- by J. IL Elliott��������� Fs  45 years of age; was working for McLaughlin at Three Forks. Was examined in this ca__ at Rossland in February last before the magistrate. West-  gate had only the use okhis left hand  but he deliberately struck the deceased.  By a juror���������Westgate's right hand  was cut with a saw.  Martin* Butler���������Was helping to  carry the'foundation-down the hill;  saw prisoner standing near... the saw  clamp, Westgate. said no one should  move tho saw clamp without his permission. When he looked round he  saw that McLaughlin had been struck  and his hat was lying on the snow.  Witness heard deceased appeal to the  witnesses. Prisoner was standing  close by Ferguson; said "one man has  as much right on this ground as another." Westgate said "You greyheaded bastard, go across the street  where you belong." Witness then left  and went across the street to where he  was working a distance of "about 50  feet. The next think he saw was  Westgate, had a piece of board and  struck McLaughlin over- the shoulder.  McLaughlin had a hatchet in his hands  and struck al Westgate three times  with it. It was a small, short handled  hatchet. The third time he hit West-  gate on the head with the back of the  hatchet. This took place right in front  of Westgate's cabin. Witness then  went on to work thinking the trouble  was over. Five minutes or so later  saw McLaughlin come from Doc  Phelps' house walking with his thumbs  in his pants pocket without a coat or  hat. Saw Westgate come out with a  pole axe and strike at McLaughlin and  hit him below the right shoulder. McLaughlin stumbled around facing  Westgate and before he fell Westgate  made another swinging blow with the  axe. Witness turned his head as he-  did not want to see the effect; deceased  was in the act of falling when the second blow was struck.  Cross-examined by Mr. Elliott. Had  known McLaughlin for about two  years; did not know there' was much  talk over this al.air; had not talked it  ovet with anyone. Did not know  Westgate before the occurrence. Did  not^ee McLaughlin put his hand on  the clamp to carry1 it oil; prisoner said  "I don't want anyone to move this  clamp without my permission." When  deceased struck prisoner with hatchet  he made two feints at him first without striking him.  Dit. AKTiiuit���������Attended deceased; was  called in between 7 and 8in the morning.  Deceased was suffering from a serious  cut in the left leg. It was an iucised  wound about 5 iuches in length, extending obliquely and downward from just  below the kuee, cutting in to the bouc.  Patient was pale, possibly from loss of  blood. The arteries were severed us well  as some of the main veins. Called in Dr.  Keller aud proceeded to treat the patient  and to coutrol the hemorrhage. Patient  at the time was in Doc. Phelp's house.  Remained with patient four to five  hours. Attended patient until his death,  in five or six days ot blood poisoning, the  result ot this wound.  Cross-examined by Mr. Elliott���������Had  known deceased for some three years and  had always considered him a healthy and  sober man. Fouud the patient sitting on  a pile of shavings clasping bis leg and  successfully stopping the flow of blood.  Was present just after the witnesses  signed the will of deceased. Did not hear  McLaughlin say anything about the  troubles betweeu himself and Westgate.  In order to save the man's life it was necessary to enlarge the wound in order to  reach arteries which could not he done  otherwise. This was done and a drainage tube put in. Wound was cleaned  with antiseptic solutions, the mac being  under chloroform between three and four  hours. Deceased might have vomited  once or twice. Blood poisoning is not an  easy matter to provide against. If a  wound is clean it is comparatively easy  to guard agaiust it. Under the circumstances it was impossible to be certain  that no disease germs were in the wound.  Does not know how the blood poisoning  arose iu this instance. Such a thing has  occurred from purticles left in the wound  from the surgeon's knife. The wound  was a severe oue and they hoped to save  the leg. Possibly amputation would have  saved the man's life. Could not tell the  chances of his recovery if amputation  was performed. If they had had the  patient's consent they would have amputated the leg, as it would have been  comparatively useless if he had recovered.  Does not think it was their duty to amputate the leg, although it might have  saved his life. r  James Y. Cole, miner of Rossland,  remembered seeing deceased and prisoner  on February 20th. Did not know either  of them. Was in McKellar's cabin. Deceased was standing near Westgate. He  went away and came back and picked up  saw clamp and started to walk away with  it. Westgate went up behind him and  pulled his.hat off and slung it at him.  McLaughlin then appeared to get a hand  axe and struck at Westgate' several  times. Westgate fell down, got up again  and then cliuched. Some person took the  hatchet from- McLaughlin and threw it  uway. McLaughlin went into cabin adjoining Westgate's, while Westgate went  into his own. Westgate came out with  an axe and stuck it in the block, 8 or 10  feet from his door. McLaughlin then  came out and went towards Westgate,  who struck at him with the jaxe. McLaughlin staggered and fell. As he was  getting up - Westgate struck him again  with the axe. Did not see the effect of  the second blow, Was about 100 feet  away. ���������  Cross-examined: Westgate asked McLaughlin what business he had buildiug  a Chinese den oppos.te his wiudows.  Westgate used his left hand. His right  hand appeared to be disabled. Saw blood  on Westgate's face after' the whole  trouble was oyer. Thinks the axe left  Westgate's hands at the last blow.  By His Lordship: The Jmen were facing-each .other_when_the_tirst_blo.w__,was_  struck. McLaughlin reeled and the  second blow struck him when he was recovering himself.  R. C. Ferguson went with McLaughlin to where the foundation lay upon the  hillside. The foundation was made by  McLaughlin where they tried to lay. it  next day. . It was a box frame. The previous evening it was lying iieux West-  gates shack. After seeing the foundation'  on the hillside went to breakfast. Heard  there was a row, went out and .found  prisoner and deceased, heard words passing, Westgate told him he had no business there so he", went back to Mrs.  Kellie's, presently Mrs. Kellie said they  were'tighting over there and ho went out  to see. Witness proceeded to describe  the events practically as the previous  witness had doue���������saw blood on West-  gates face. " Could not say whether the  axe was in Westgates baud or not whet?  the last blow was struck.  Cross examined. Has not taken auy  particular interest iu this case. Had not  tried to hunt up evideuce.-  ���������Hahky Jones���������Lives at Rossland near  the prisoners cabin. ;He told practically  the same story as the others up. to .the  time deceased approached prisoner after  the first scrap. He then saw Westgate  take the axe out of the block where it  was stuck and hit McLaughlin a. blow  with it. After the second blow he picked  up "the axe and prisoner took it from him.  Cross examined by Mr. Elliott .nothing new being elicited.  Thos. E. Miller had nothing new to  add.   '  Hugh McGlynn was in his cabin aud  saw men' packing fouudation of house  down the hill. They carried it down to  where it had been the evening before.  Westgate was standing on the disputed  ground having the saw clamp ou his arm.  He then related much the same story as  the previous witnesses. ���������  In cross examination he had seen West-  gate using the saw clamp on the disputed  ground- before McLaughlin put the  [oundaliou there. * *   ���������  This closed the case for the Crown.  For the defence Mr.  Bowes submitted  that the prosecution had neither proved  the death itself nor the manner of death.  His  Lordship over-ruled  this' objection  and would leave it to the jury.   He then  addressed the court for tbe defence.   The  prisoner would avail himself of his  right  to go into the box and give a straight forward  account of   the   occurrence.     No  power could compel him  to do so, nor  I could any remark be'made to his detri-  i ment if he refused to do so.  !     He then proceeded to explain the na-  ; ture of the tenure of theresidents of Sour  j Dough ally.   Westgate had acted in self  i defence, he was practically a   disabled  j man' having  one   hand  injured.     The  Crown had produced no ante mortem statement of McLaughlin's, but the defence  had a witness who will state that before  his death deceased had said that he alone  was to blame and it was in no way AVmt-  gates fault.  The accused was then put in the box.  A day or two before the row he saw  McLaughlin clearing away thc snow  from a piece of ground adjoining his  cabin, telling him he was going to  build a cabin t here for himself. He objected as the building would be so close  to his own. McLaughlin said he would  build where he liked. He had a saw  bench and some timber on the land,  which Mr. McLaughlin removed; he  expostulated with him but got the  same reply. Other neighbors advised  McLaughlin not to build there. On  20th he got up and came out and saw  McLaughlin and others carrying foundation back from the hill. He then  Cut the saw bench where it had been  efore McLaughlin removed it. McLaughlin and others laid the foundation down when they got near the saw  bench. He told McLaughlin not to remove his property without his permission.  McLaughlin went to the saw bench and  put his left arm under it and started to  walk away. Witness went up and put  his left arm on it to prevent him carrying  it away. McLaughlin put it down and  went into Doc Phelps' house coming out  agaiu with a hand axe. He went to the  saw bench and put his left arm on the  3aw bench having the axe in the other  hand. Witness again put his left arm on  the saw bench. McLaughlin then let go  and turned ou-witness with the axe, saying "I'll let you know, you son of a "  He also struck at him with the axe. Witness guarded off the blows with his left  hand, hiajright being crippled and useless. Off. blow struck him on the head  and knocked him down, tbe blood trickled out of the wound. Felt dizzy and  stunned. He is subject to fits���������has had  more since the blow than before. Previously he had a fit ouly every six or eight  montliB and now he has had several since  he has been in jail. As he got up he  swerved to ovoid a blow which came close  by his head. ., He picked up a piece of  board and hit McLaughlin with it,.the  board broke. McLaughliu still followed  him up with the axe. His left arm was  black with the blows he had received in  warding off the blows. He jammed McLaughlin tight against the front of 'the  cabin while the axe was taken out of. his  hand. Witness'went to his own cabin  and came out agair. Saw McLaughliu  coming out of Doc Phelps' house looking  very angry. His right baud was in his  pocket. Supposed he was going to tackle him again. Was afraid he would, his  head was dizzy and stunned and he felt  in no condition to fight, having the use  only one arm. Told McLaughlin to keep  away several times but be took no notice.  Took an axe that was iu a block close by  and made a motion with it' to keep McLaughlin back. He still kept coming on.  and got in the way of the blow. His left  arm was still numb aud he could not hold  the axe firmly. The axe^ flew out of his  hand; he bad no intention of striking McLaughlin, his intention was to keep him  back, he thought that he would be afraid  to come within reach of the axe. McLaughlin was faciug him when he hit  him. After the blow McLaughliu walked  into Doc Phelps' house.  Had no qualified counsel at magistrate's  examination. Enquired at different times  about McLaughlin. Did not know the  wound was dangerous until the fifth day.  Cross-examined by Attorney General.  Had no objection to buildings near, his  place, but not close to his cabin. Probably 40 feet between witness' house and  thenext.1. Did not know who took = the  .foundation away, until.he.heard.talk.about.  it next day. Did not mind a buildiug going up so long as it was not close to his  window. The log on the grouud was oue  over after he had finished building his  cabin. Came out of his cabin because he  thought he would be safer outside his  cabin than iuside. Would not use the axe  if McLaughlin had not tackled him.  It is quite true that McLaughlin used  violent language toward him. His evidence was not shaken by the cross-examination. Had nothing whatever to do  with moving the fouudation.  Jon*-* McCi'eigii��������� Saw McLaughlin the  day before the trouble at noon standing  there witlni crowd of meu talking about  leaving an alley-way clear. In the evening McLaughliu was laying the foundation close to Westgate's. On the 20th he  was in bed whon tho row started. ��������� He  heard some one say "For God's sake, don't  strike with tlio axe." He jumped out of  bed and saw Westgate Vail, McLaughlin  was wielding an axe. Westgate fell and  got up and took up a piece of board, McLaughlin still threatening him with the  axe and trying to strike him. Westgate  pinned McLaughliu against the cabin aud  prevented him using the axe. McLaughlin went into Phelps' cabin and came out  again looking mad. * He approached  Westgate who told him to keep back. At*  the hnal blow the axe must have left  Westgate's hand as the meu were at least  seven feet apart and facing each other.  Cross-examined���������Of the last two blows,  could not swear exactly how tbe first  struck McLaughlin, and the blow might  have knocked him down. Saw, nothing  in McLaughlin's hands. Did not see  Westgate.go into his house and come out  again'. He and Westgate built the cabin  together and he was living with-him.  Re-examined���������The neighbors did not  jwant the cabin built.'  \V*ir-__A.f Youno Cijakke���������The first h'e-  saw of Westgate he was standing by his  cabin with blood running down his face.  The test of his evidence corroborated that  of the last witness'  The Attorney General did not cross-examine this witness.  Robert Nelson gave evidence of a similar nature.  . James Welch remembered the time  when McLaughlin was lying ill. Saw  him 5n the evening, there were six or seven men gathered in the house to see how-  he was getting on' His further evidence  as to what McLaughlin said was not admitted.  John B. Boon arrested Westgate anJ  examined him. found a cut on his head  about two inches long. His right arm  was cut with a cross cut saw and was  useless. His left arm w;is bruised in two  places.  II. D. Asuceoft���������On" the 15th, sewed  up a wound on Westgates arm. , On the  19th it was very sore.  Mr. Elliott then addressed the Court  on behalf of the prisoner, and the At-  torny General having summed up on behalf of the Crown, His Lordship charged  the jury, pointing out the difference between culpable and justifiable homicide,  and hinted pretty plainly his own opinion  of the present case. The jury retired at 5  p. m. and the court adjourned until 8 p.  m., when tbe Court having assembled  tbey brought in a verdict of guilty, and  the prisoner was sentenced to 11 months  hard labour. It is understood that Hia  Lordship was under the impression that  Westgate had already been five months  in jail and intended to inflict a farther  sentence of six months. As a matter of  fact he will have to remain in prison for  seven months more.  GRAND JURY PRESENTMENT.  During the course of Thursday's proceedings the Grand Jury made the following, o  presentment.  May it please your Lordship:  We the Grand Jurj* of the Distriot of  West Kootenay desire to congratulate  your Lordship on the lightness of, your  labours at this assize and venture to  agree with your Lordship's remarks as  to the small amount of crime amongst us  for a new mining community.  We think that the- time has arrived  when a Provincial Jail for the distriot  should be established at Nelson, and a  jailor appointed. And we wish to thoroughly, urge the importance of this, as  prisoners are now sent from this district  to Kamloops at all seasons of the year at  a heavy expense, and all times uuder severe exposure to the weather.  We would also strongly recommend  that the local jail should be strengthened  and improved, as it is at present quite inadequate for the purpose for which it was  built and offers no great impediment to  the freedom which prisoners sometimes  court.  We consider it our duty to recommend"  that the slaughter houses situated on the  flat near Cottonwood Creek should be indicted at this assize as public nuisances  and as being injurious to the health of  this town.  We desire to point out that no proper  authority appears to exist in this district  for regulating and coutrolliugthe building  of new towns and we wish particularly  to call your Lordship's attention to the  state of affairs at Rossland, where a number of small cabins, which are stated to  be used in part as brothels, have beeu  built on the railway reserve, close up to  the best busiuess part of town, the-own-  ners of which have apparently no redress,  thus addiug greatly to the danger of fire,  a danger which is always imminent in  nejt_>mining towus, and we recommend  that a street or road of at least 100. feet  wide will be ordered to be made where  the railway reserve joius the townsite. ���������  We desire to call attention to the most  unsatisfactory administration of intestate  estates in this district, and also that outside of Nelson and Kaslo there is no provision for the administration of the Small  Debts Act.  We attach hereto a petition from citizens of Kaslo complaining that the Theatre Comique is illegally carried on, and  that the same is* a place of questionable  repute, and we request your Lordship's  attention to the same.

James Westgate, who was convicted of  manslaughter on Thursday, is to serve  the retraining seven months of his imprisonment here at Nelson, where he will  be little more than a compulsory guest of  Paddy Miles. His many sympathisers,  among whom we reckon ourselves, will !!  be glad to hear that he is not to be sent  to a regular gaol. .    .  Inspector Fletcher of the Fost Oflico -  department has been looking us up again.  He has taken the hint of our 'Rossland  correspondent and expedited the dispatch of the mails from the'new town  northward. He has also arranged that  mail between Nelson aud Rossland shall  be carried via Robson as well as over the  N. & F. S. R'y. This affords a service of  five mails a week between the two towns.  Mr. Justice Walkem and the Attorney  General left yesterday afternoon on a visit to. Rossland. The'Judge is extremely,  interested interested in this country and  means to visit Pilot Bay-and Kaslo before  going back to Victoria. Mr. Eberts is  equally struck with the progress of the '  district since his last visit here three  years ago when he was engaged as counsel in a case relating to the Noble Five  property. i: I  N '.  ! if ���������[  i  "t  ti v  H  '!������������������'���������  i -:  i 5'i  i i  I  I'M  ll:'  THE MINER NELSON, B.C., SATURDAY.

There seems to be a great deal of confusion about the.fish commonly taken  in the Kootenay Lake and River. We  therefore take thc following concerning them from Mr. Ashdown Green's  paper on the salmonida. of British Columbia. The common trout of the  Province, the one with the broad purple stripe down his side is. Saltno pur-  purata. Apart from his gorgeous side  armour he may be distinguished by the  red patches on the outer edge of the  lower jaw and by the caudal fin (tail)  which is slightly forked. The large  fish caught chiefly in the lake are the  two great char Salvelinus Malnia and  Salvelinus Namaycush. The former of  these, commonly known as the Dolly  Varden Trout is distributed from California to Alaska and extends eastwards  across the Rockies'. It is a very gaudy  fish, the back;;being olive green with  spots of a lighter shade; below the median line it is golden with pale salmon  colour spots. It is possible that Salmo  Iridius may also be found in some of  the side streams and the speckled beauties that are caught in Cottonwood and  other Lakes are probably of this species. There is a large migratory trout  known as the sea trout whose latin  name is Salmo gairdnerii, but we are  probably too far <from the sea for him  and the falls of the Kootenay would  effectually shut him out as they do the  salmon even if he got so far.  A Maker of Glaus Eyes.  Visitors to tho World's' fair will remember the quaint little workman who  sat in one corner of a great building  and made eyes from morning until  night, part of them for dolls, part of  thero for human beings and occasionally one for a horso or some other pet animal. The workman, whose namo was  Muller, had come ovor from Germany  to show how his people worked, and  when the fair was over he set up a little shop in Chicago and tried for awhile  to make his industry flourish on American soil. But after a time he found  that the wholesale dealers persisted in  sending across the water for their supplies, and ho grew so homesick that he  finally roturued to the fatherland, and  he is. now doubtless "working in some  one of the quaint little Thuringian villages.  It will be rememberod that ho was  marvelously deft in his work. First he  blew a bulb from molten glass. Then,  when it was cold, hecarefully broke off  one side so as to leave('a shell, tho edges  of which were blunted by melting. He  secured the proper size of eye by having  ~theT)ey_6_rf6f "wlioliT ifc^^^  before him as "he worked. Having the  shell complete," he bent down over a  Bunsen burner, and just touching its  upper surfaco to the flame he worked  the eye design, on the glass with little  sticks of varicolored glass, the points of  which were molted in tho flame.  The work' required a wonderfully  steady hand aud a tru. eye in"order to  make the  iris and  the  retina of  tho  . proper color and shape. The workman  is so skilled that he can copy, direct  from tho person who stands hoforo him."  ���������Chicago Record. .. ��������� "    '  The Reign of Pence.

Again, a friond of  mine who had several dogs, two young  dandies and an old Skye, lately went out  to the edge of a wood near his house  where he saw hia dogs playing with a  fox. -  They sported together playfully till  the old Skyo got wind of the fox and  then "went for him" with a yowl,  whereupon the poor fox fled. Tho young  dogs seemed to cherish no unfriendly-  feelings till, the veteran set a bad example. Dogs and cats aro not natural enemies. It is we. who have corrupted  them, and "a cat ahd dog life" is, even  still, often of good example to married  people.���������Andrew Lang in Longman's  Magazine.  Large Lamp Shade* on tlie Wane.  Tho mania for exaggerated lamp  shades seems to be on the wane. The  newest lamps,show fine globes made to  harmonize with the foundation, and  dealers report a revived sale of tinted  porcelain shades. The silk, however, is  yet made into frills and furbelows that  suggest nothing short of ball gowns refurnished to serve a new end, but the  tulle that is made to copy a ballet dancer's skirts and the paper monstrosities  are both ugly and dangerous. The ouly  wonder in regard to them is that .the insurance companies have not been aroused, and that a reform campaign has not  been organized before this.���������Boston  traveller.  TREMENDOUS  PRESSURE.  A  Machine   on   the   Hydraulic   Principle,  but Using Oil Instead of Water.  Tho reporter went tho other clay to  see a wonderful machine, a .maohino  which is not only a prodigious and terrible pieco of enginery, but an allegory.  It is called a testing machine, and it is  used to ascertain the resisting power of  various materials. It is not content  with finding out that a beam of oak, for  instance, will boar without broakiug a  pressure on ouo spot of 100,000 pounds.  Tho beam must bo utterly crushed oacli  time tho test is mado, and note must bo  taken of the oxact weight that lay upon  it at tho moment of its final dissolution.  Day aftor day this groat niachinohoavos  and strains itsolf aud bears down with  ������low and awful i'orco upon some tough  beam or block of wood, and whether tho  timber is placed flatwiso andnoeds, say,  but a paltry 75 tons to crush it, or  whether it bo placed ondwiso, liko a  pillar, and will hold up twico as much  weight beforo it cries out and gives up  tho ghost, it must yield just tho samo  aud surrender its pitiful, crushed iranio  to bo photographed and studied and  picked to pieces for tho benofit of science. That is all very interesting, you  may say, but it is a more pieco of bruto  machinery. Whero is the allegory that  you told us of? That lies in the thing  by the I'orco of which this monstrous  pressuro is exerted. It is oil. Nothing  but suave, gentle, yielding oil, the emblem of softness and agrecablencss.  There is a certain pistou in this  mechanism which, pressing against a  quantity of oil in a confined spaco, forces  this oil against another iron surface,  which in turn presses forward upon the  timber so that all this crushing power is  exerted by.tho rnodiura of nothing but  oil. As you watch the machine, even in  the most exciting moment of the culmination of its crushing force, you cannot but bo conscious that it is tho oil  that is doing it. The master stands over  his great machine, his pupils grouped  about. It lies down flat ou its groat  back, like a giant bracing his shouldor  against a rock to push with his feet.  The thing which ho is pushing against  is a beam of seasoned oak, about 10  inches square, and the thing with which  ho is pushing is another and lengthwise  square beam of oak, the end of which is  directly against tho side of the beam to  be crushed. Off at one sido, apparently  unconnected with tho machine, but in  reality connected with it, is an apparatus where there are levers, comparable  with the throttle valve of a locomotive,  and a gauge which registers accurately  the pressuro that is being oxerted. A  young learner stands at theso levers and  this gauge, and when the master says,  "Turn on more oil," he moves a lever,  and tho pressuro rises. Seventy thousand, pounds, 8.0,000 pounds, it rises  rapidly. Tho lengthwiso beam' is sinking itsolf deep into tho side of,tho victim timber, but this still holds out  bravely. Tho pressure rises to 90,000���������  100,000 pounds. Tho watchers all gather  around tho ecu tor of tho pressure in anticipation of the catastrophe; the lengthwise timber is squeezing into tho solid  oak of the other ono as one's thumb  might be driven into a pieco of choose.  But still it holds. Littlo by little the  power is turned on. Tho youngJnian at  the gauge calls "120,000," "130,000,"  "140,000," "1-0,000." You hear the  snapping of a myriad of tondoiis within  tho beam, and all those sounds join in a  sort of low buzzing roar or cry, which  suggests an elemental agony. One hundred and sixty thousand pounds���������the  beam sinks deeper into tho flesh of its  victim; 170,000. "More oil!" calls tho  mastor, and now the crackle rises���������tho  lengthwiso beam itself begins to crack,  and the other beam, yielding at last,  seems to go to pieces all at once, and  when-tho pressure-isremove'difc-is'taken"  out, twisted, contorted, riven, pierced,  crushed.  It is useful service, after all, though  it seems but an exhibition of tho brutality of xnero mechanism, that the testing  machine and its bod of oil havo done,  for sinco the master began tho work  with it he-has proved that timbers will  stand onlyabout half the weight which  the accepted authorities said thoy would  stand, and by introducing a moro conservative weighting pf wood ho has.  doubtless saved many human lives from  destruction by tho collapse of. timbered  structures. ���������Boston Transcript.

We hear very grave complaints at
the state of the road leading from
Three Forks to Sandon. Our readers
will remember that last year in response to 11 very urgent appeal from
the owners of all the important mining
property to which the road leads the
original trail was patched up to make
a sleigh road** We believe that the
sum of .7,00V was voted for the purpose of making a wagon road out of it.
The Commissioner, "howeve*.1, very
wisely determined to spend only a part
of the money then on the work as the
season was advanced and to cotnplcte
the job this summer, retaining in his
hands a sufficient amount of the origi-*
nal appiopiiation to do so. This summer, however, finds two railway companies racing up the valley to Sandon
and in view of their early completion,
the Commissioner declines to finish
the road. Meanwhile great hindrance
to the mining industry results. The
Slocan Star and other mines are pre-
pared to ship 1,000 tons a week if a
wagon road were available, and the
owners of this great mine are unable
, to haul in certain machinery which .is
necessary to them because the trail
that made a good sleigh road in the
winter is useless now.
It appears to us that the work should
be put in hand and completed right
off. The fact that raihvay communication will be available in a few
months does not appear to alfect the
matter at all. There is not likely to
be more than one train a day on each
line between Sandon and Three Forks,
and travellers may tequire to pass from
one place to the other at clitt'.renttiines.
A good road will have to he made and
as Lhe money is already voted, there is
no better time than the present Lo do
the work.
We have made some remarks -else-
whore about the necessity of completing the wagon road between Sandon
and Three Forks.
We wanL now Lo sLate our opinion
that the Lime is past for what may be
termed the paternal way of carrying
out public works.' All government,
work above a certain value should be
let by public Lender, with proper conditions i'or the security of the public
money. The amounts of all lender-
should be handed to the newspapers so
that in the event of the lowest not being accepted the public may form its
own conclusions as to the reason why
or if no reason is apparent, it can be ascertained on enquiry. This system
would necessitate the employment of
a competent engineer who would soon
save bis salary, and the contracts
should be let on an unvarying form.
In this way the public will get its work
done well, cheaply, and honestly.
Some 1 emni-k. which we made last
week upon Llie recent improvements to
Ihe town of Nelson appear to have
given offence in high places. We rc-
grcL Ibis, because our remarks were
not offensive nor were they intended
Lo givo olVense, but nevertheless we
feel obliged to stand to our guns. As
one of tin* individuals who objected to
oui remarks informed us thai- he had
not. read theni. we will repeat, our observations in order that ho may have
an opportunity of learning what it is
he objects to. We said thai, the work
done on the streets is practically useless and we remarked that Lhe accustomed rivulet still trickled in itsa.ii-
cienL channel down Stanley Street,
covering with mud the now crossing
at its foot. Wc- further suggested thai
having sent away our two prisoners to
Kamloops it was in order now to spend
the balance of the Sjil.-UO in getting
stones broken to make tho road to Llie.
wharf good in winter weather. If
there is any further balance wo shall
be happy" to point out other useful
directions in   which  it  may bo spent.
The Kaslo Prospector in its last issue 'goes for' the 0. P. R. and its officials, high and low, because they do not
��� hand their freight for Kaslo to the s.s.
Alberta.     We   have more  than  once
ourselves had occasion  to  censure the
great   railway company  when  it ap-
.  peared to us to be unfair or overbearing
have always found our statements listened to with attention and   the errors
remedied as far as possible.   We do
not like girding at a company,  and
only do so when our duty to the public
demands it.   We believe not only that
nagging does no good in the direction
of remedying abuses, but actually does
harm.   When  moreover a statement
in a public print is actually misleading
as in the present case,  it becomes our
duty to let the public  know  the truth
of the case.   The gist of the article in
question is to the effect that the officials of the C. P. 1*1. are in  league  with
each other or with someone else  to
baulk the owners of the "Alberta" of
(heir legitimate share of the' freight.
In  the  picturesque   language of   the
west,  this is nil  "poppy-cock."    Tlie
-   present arrangement is a yearly contract which  was made with the s.s.
Nelson while the Alberta was lying���
an unfinished hull tit Kaslo.,  By virtue
of this arrangement the merchants of
Kaslo receive .their goods at, the same
rate as that paid by the people of Nelson.   The cost of the extra thirty-live
miles of Lake carriage and of transshipment, amounting to two dollars is
paid out of their own pocket by the C.
,P..R. without any extra expense whatever to the Kaslo consignees.   The article in the Kaslo paper commences by-
insinuating that theC. P; K discrimi-
inates"   against   Kaslo.     The   writer
however, fails to point out in favour of
which  locality the discrimination   is
made.   A little further acquaintance
- with the principles of the English language would show him that a sentence
containing the word discriminate  re-
.    quires a complement:   A large part of
the article contains  evidence that the
writer has not taken the trouble to inform   himself' as to the facts,  upon
If the placo unmentionable is paved
with good intentions, what becomes of
all the presentments of grand juries?
Surely they are good intentions embodied
in carefully chosen language, the pride
of their author's hearts, full of sound common seuse and yet what becomes of them?
Pigeonholed. And there Lhoy will lie
until the towns in which thc nuisances
are pointed out have ceased to exist mid
the very language in which they are
couched is known only by some ancieut
scholar versed in tlie tongues of past ages.
An apt instance stares us in the face,
in one of .the paragraphs of the presentment handed iu on Thiiisday. It indicts
the slaughter houses at the end of Baker
street as nuisances. A year or two ago
they were similarly indicted, with the result that a new one was built on Give-
out Creek, but it was never used, the old
ones arc still in full play ami the building away up on the wagon road stauds a
monument to the futility of grand jury
In their presentment on Thursday the
grand jury put their fingers on the plague
spots and if their recomme_datiops were
carried out the district would be all tbe
better. But 1-lis Lordship very quickly
dispelled any line illusions of their fulfilment that may have floated ' before
those grand jurymen's eyes. As he read
clause by clause he pointed out the proper authorities to remedy the abuse alluded to. Oue was a matter of policy of the
Provincial Government, another was a
matter of police regulations, another was
entirely a question for the Mayor and
council whom the citizens pf Kaslo have
We. were told also that it was easy
for irresponsible persons to criticise the
work. We tak. up the challenge
and declare that we are by. no means
irresponsible. We are responsible to
Lhe public for seeing that money given
for a certain purpose is properly spent
on that purpose and if in our opinion
any of it is being wasted or the work
is not being carried out' to the best advantage it is our duty to say so and we
intend to do our duty. -"As we have
said before we have no wish to be
offensive or to transgress the rules of
civil and polite criticism and we deny
that we have done so. But if people
will not read what, we write, they can
not be expected Lo draw correct conclusions.

Up to the time of our going to press
Frank Hughes, who is accused of at-*
tempting to extort, money by blackmail, has not put in an appearance lo
stand his trial. The evidence in the
case is of the most convincing kind.
On the strength of it the-grand jury
only took two .or three minutes to
bring in a true bill. It consists of a
letter written by the accused to the
prosecutor, threatening in plain terms
to publicly accuse the prosecutor of
the vilest "conduct unless the sum'of
S3 JO was forthcoming. There is no
beating about the bush. In fact it is
so piain that the only' conclusion thas
can be drawn froiu i't is that Ilughcs

country and of all civilized nations
protect their subjects from this particularly cruel form of torment.- i'he
