The Cariboo Cump.'iny fit Camp Mc-  Kinney are. putting in a 10 .stamp mill.  The following claims in South Okanagan arc being developed: Iron Cap,  Lucky Boy, Eagle Bird, Sentinel,  Elkhorn.  On the Enterprise copper claim,  Kettle lliv'pr, a cross cut of 182 feet  had to he made before the extent of  the vein was determined.  The bond on the Black Prince, Lai-  deaii, has been taken up anil development work will be pushed on. A good  deal of gold has been taken out of the  river recently, but the water is too  higii just now for work lo be continued.  At the Hcunestake mine on Adams  Lake, the upraise has nearly rerched  the surface. About 000 tons of ore  have been put on the dump during last  month. As soon as the upraise is completed work will probably be suspended until a reduction plant is installed.  Work is to be commenced'on the Lytton, an extension of the Homestake,  the property of Messrs. W. T. Woods  and J. A. Mara.  Tbe coal miue on the North Thompson  50 miles from Kamloops will be worked  shortly.  The Eeverett, Wash, smelter has resumed operations. There is au accumulation of ore ready for treatment.  Union miners in Warduer, Idaho, have  deuounced the A. P.

The lulls are about bare of snow, with  prospects of a mighty short season's ruu  for these gray-bearded old grizzlies of the  Rockies."  After a dormancy of nearly two years,  the Hu_ter mine at Mnllan, Idaho,"again  prepared to resume, operations but the  -ciislomary-laboi-tronbles-in-that "region"  compelled the superintendent to abandon  the project.

The Hall Minus Company expects to  receive live lender- by Monday next  for the erection of a tramway from t 1k-  Silver King to the lake. The chairman of tlie company, Sir Joseph  Trutch, will arrive nt Nelson on Tuesday. The Board of Directors will bo  at the same time sitting in London,  and should any of the tenders be found,  suitable arrangements for its -acceptance, will he made by cable. The  company is anxious to have this work  completed as speedily as possible in  oider to facilitate the output of ore.  We fancy it recognizes the fact that  it derives little benefit from having  enormous deposits of ore on the top of  a mountain for wondering visitors to  stare at.  The Royal Canadian and adjoining  claims, Nevada and Colorado, have  been bonded to Charles Mead of Idaho  for _:',500, payable on the first of  August. These claims are situated on  tlie hill side just above the trail, between tingle and Forty-nine Creeks,  in a most favourable position for shipping, a direct and easy grade leading  to the railway, scarcely a mile away.  They contain a ledge of free milling  gold qnariK, but. as little development  ������������������york has been done upon them very  little is known about it. Jt is satisfactory to find that mining property  about Nelson is finding a. market.  A remarkable discovery of galena  ore has been made about four miles  from town. Tlie claim on which the  find was made is called the Union, and  is located about two miles west of the  Columbia River and one mile north of  Stony Creek. The owners are Mike  Morris. Dan O'Brien and 11. McGlen.  They claim to have six feet of ore  and not to be through the vein yet.  The ore is in a quart/, gangue and is n  line grained galena with some iron and  copper pyrites showing in it.  The assay returns from the White  Elephant; discovered on Friday by  Hall and McCormiek are likely to cause  a stampede in the direction of Stony  Creek. The ore went'!$28 in gold and  70 ounces in silver to the ton. It is not  more than four miles from Rossland to  where this bonanza was struck, and  several parties have already hit the  trail iu that direction. The rock  which gave such astonishing results is  ordinary enough looking white quartz  with galena and iron through it.  There is no free gold visible to the  naked eye. There is a big strong vein  of-it. on the ground. Hall, McCormiek,  McKenzie, Leitch and Keefer are partners in the claim.  TRAIL ClU-Elv.  Since the bonding of the R. E. Lee  and the Maid of I.rin much attention  has been given to the hillson the south  side of the creek and a large number  of claims have been staked. F. Algiers and liis partner report a large  find of ochre carrying fine gold. They  intend working on it at once.  The Lily May, belonging to Oliver  Borden, has been bonded to Mr. C.  Sweeney for $25,000.  A discovery of free milling rock has  been made about eight- miles from  Rossiand. The exact locality will nor  be disclosed until the lucky discoverers  have had time to prospect their find.  Meanwhile many of our citizens  are shadowing the suspected parties  and trying to find their camp. Some  Hue specimens have been brought in,  all showing specks of gold.  Last week Messrs. O'Brien and Mc-  Glynn brought in somo rock from the  Grand Prize. The rock is a friable  quartz hearing auriferous pyrites and  galena. The galena, however1, plays  out a few feel from the sin-face and  tliepyrit.e becomes richer. The claim  is situated near the head of Stouey  Creek.  ' Work   is   no\v  Columbia.  in . progress on  the  STHAXGHLY (iAKBLKI).  Wc can hardly believe that the" statements attributed to the lion. J. II. Turner by the Canadian Gazette can have  .been uttered by that gentlomnu. From  the following it will be seen that sentences" are attributed to the Premier,  which if lie said them would tend to  show thai he did not know what he was  talking about, which is not Mr. Turner's  way. Probably tlie reporter who interviewed the minister on his way to England did noto actually print what the  Premier said. These are the remarks  about Kooteday:  ''Wheie does the ore go?"  "Ah, I thought yon would ask that.  At preseut it goes to tho United States,  to Helena,-to he smelted. It has lo be  picked, aud only the richest is sent away.  It must rim $1(50 to .200 to the ton lo"  make it worth while to send it away.  But that will be remedied. A large  smelter is about to be opened * at Pilot  Bay, ou Kootenay Lake, aud llie.ore will  be sent direct there for smelling,' to the  -.'real advantage of the mines and of the  province. Auother very large smelter is  being built near Kevelstoke on the Canadian Pacific railway by a United States  company to take the ore of that district.  From the' Nakusp and Slocan district  hundreds of thousands of tons of ore,  mostly silver, have been taken out already. Then at Trail Creek. Kootenav,  a mining railway is being built."  "Also with "United States raonev?"'  "Also by a United .States company. Indeed, the whole of the Kootenay without  exception shows great signs of prosperity  this year.''  Mike .Morris has an excellent prospect about three miles north of Rossland. The rock carries galena with a  large percentage of copper1.  The War Eagle people report the  discovery of a new vein.  The town is growing on finely. There  are now about 150 houses and the  population will not fall, far short of  one thousand. Considerable improvement is in progress and an mcandes-  -cent-electi'io-light-plant-will-be-instal-  led as soon as the grading of the  streets is finished. Altogether prospects for the future are good and  money is coming in from the outside  in a very encouraging manner.  [The above arrived too late for insertion lasl week. ��������� AVe have again to  acknowledge our indebtedness to the  llossland Miner for the following, our  correspondent's letter having for a  second time failed to reach us. |  ���������"Mr. A. lv Humphreys of Diilul.h has  bonded the Columbia-and Kootenay  claims.,for $75,000.

We are informed on excellent authority that ��������� t hese claims bid fair to  outdo the War Eagle. .       ��������� *  CARIBOO.  With the coming of spring, which has  now beeu upon us for several weeks, renewed activity is being displayed in the  various miuirjg camps.  The roads are quite dry and in first-  rate condition, aud but for its usual over  crowded state, the weekly stage from  Ashcroft to Barkerville would be making  fast time.  The Cariboo Hydraulic company's mine  at Quesnelle Forks and the Horsefly  company's miue, are busy with preparations for their summers work, while development and prospecting, work is beiug  commenced ou numerous other properties.  Preparations are being made at the  Horsefly miue for the finug of an enormous blast, in order to break up a large  bank of gravel aud cement too hard in its  preseut couditiou for ordinary piping.  Chambers have been excavated and no  less than _0,000 lbs. of powder will be  ignited instantaneously. Mr. Holaon,  the engineer in charge, hopes by this  means to bring a larger amount of  material into immediate use, and also to  facilitate greatly his future operations.  Eiver dredging is still occupying tbe  minds of many in this district. Two  dredges are about to commence on the  Quesnelle Eiver, near the forks, and a  third is being constructed at Soda Creek,  which it is the intention of the owners to  lake up the Fraser river for about 200  miles above that place, where rich bars  are said to exist.  Another dredger will shortly be constructed to work a rich portion of the  river between Quesnelle Mouth and Fort  George. '  Mr. Thos White, C E., and Mr. H.  Carry, C. E., were passengers on lasl  week's stage from Ashcroft. The forme  was bound for Quesnelle Forks and the  latter for Quesnelle Mouth. Both are  acting for the Montreal Prospecting and  Promoting Company and will be engaged  in investigating and developing the  various properties of this Company.  Mr. Sidney Williams, P. L. S,, was also  a passenger on the stage en route for  Qnesnelle Mouth.  A SMELTER AT SOl.T.lPO-.T.  It is reported that tbe War Eagle company has contracted to supply 35,000 tous  of ore to the Montana Ore Purchasing  Co. in two years and that the latter com  puny will build a smelter at Northport  to treat it.

C, SATURDAY, MAY 18.  1895.  SflZKW-Llt'JI  FROM COOK TO KING.  By OHAELES B. LEWIS (M. QUAD).  [.opyright, 1895, _y Charles B. Lewis.]  ���������Id the year 184S tho American bark  Charles L. Walters of New York arrived  at Fuchan, China, with a .miscellaneous cargo. A portion of tho cargo was  unloaded there, and sho proceed od on  her voyage up tho Yellow sea. Before  . doing so the Chinese government put  aboard of her 1,000 muskets and a lot; of  ammunition to bo lauded at somo port  on the north shore for use in suppressing one of thoso incipient; rohol-  lions always "on tup" in somo portion  of the great empire. All went well with  the bark until sho was as far north as  tho sou thorn peninsula of Korea, when  sho met with a typlioou and was driven  to the west among tho islands lying  above and below tho mouth of tlio  Whang-boa rivor. Tho vessel was commanded by Captain James Chinton and  carried a crew of 18 men.  At midnight,  after a struggle ,of 12 hours with tho  typhoon, she was dismasted and driven  ashore. In being carried over tho reef on  the eastern side of the island sho was  swept by a great wave, and tho entire  crew, with the exception of one man,  and he the cook, were carried away to  death.  The cook was a Rhode Island man  named Joseph Gray. He was about 23  years of age, and though a good cook  was not looked. upon as having average  intelligence. The bark was not injured  in driving over the reef and finally  brought np on tho sandy beach of an island called Wing-Leo. Tho island had  about 200 inhabitants at that time, being mainly Chinese and mostly men engaged in fishing and shell gathering.  "When daylight camo, the storm had  abated, and the wrecked vessel was safe.  She was soon visited by the natives, who  were a good naturctl, mild mannered  lot, and Gray at ouco opened negotiations with them.  He at first determined to stand by the  Wreck until help came and her cargo  Was taken out, but aftor awhile, on finding that he was looked up to and obeyed  by the natives, ho set himself up as a  ruler or king. As tho island was situated 15 miles from auy other, it was a  month or more before the residents of  the rest knew of the wreck. By that  time Gray had organized tho majority  Of his islanders into a guard," arming  them from tho government stores  aboard. He made his headquarters on  the vessel, and such a bold front did he  " pnt on that the would be wreckers were  driven off or came to reside on the island and become his subjects.   '  The bulk of the cargo . consisted of  cotton'cloths and other goods in demand  in China, and after the lapse of several  months Gray began to dispose of the  goods among the islanders and along the  coast. In those days only a few Chinese  ' ports were open to commerce, and foreign vessels passing up the Yellow sea  were few and far between. Tho Walters  Was reported lost in the typhoon, with  all hands, and it was two yoars, strange  as it "may seem, before the Chinese'government heard a rumor that she had  been driven ashoro on Wing-Leo island.  A government craft was sent to investigate, and on finding the hull and cargo  safe her captain attempted to tako possession. By this time Gray had a guard  of 100 men, and the sand had piled  around the wreck till sho could not be  approached nearer tbau half a mile by  water. Anticipating that trouble would  come sooner or later, he had converted  . the hulk into a fort and erected two  earthworks on the shore to command it.  ��������� The Chineso vessel was provided with  small cannon, and upon Gray's refusal  to surrender there was a fight lasting  -two-days.--He lost-two-men-aud-theat-.  tacking force seven or eight.  The government craft finally sailed  away to report, and for six months nothing was heard from the authorities.    It  took all that.timo for the report to be  made, sent to the capital and acted upon.  Then orders were issued for a government vessel to proceed to tho island and  capture it and kill everybody but Gray.  It was not enough if. tho people surrendered.    They were to bo wiped out to  the last man as rebels and outlaws.  Gray  realized that bis troubles had only begun.  He could easily havo escaped, but.  the career of an island king bad becomo  ���������o pleasant  that ho decided to remain  whore ho was aud fight for his rights.  -  It was over a year after tho wreck bofore the second attack. Meanwhilo Gray  had learned tho  language ahd pursued  such a policy toward the natives of the  various islands that ho had au army of  500 men ready to do his bidding.    Ho  kept himself posted as to tho movements  of tho government and had ten days'  notice of  tho second attack.    How he  procured cannon I'cannot say, but during the year ho got several pieces and  mounted them on the wreck and in tho  fort's.'  One day when he was good and  ready a government craft having 200 soldiers aboard made her appearance, and  Gray was summoned to surrender.    Ho  refused, as before, and 150 soldiers were  landed and an attack begun.  The king's;  forces  numbered  about GOO men.   As  cook of a vessel, hardly ablo to read or  write, he could have known nothing of  war  or military tactics, but0 the commission which  ultimately reported on  tlie whole affair gave him credit Dcyom  what.you would  imagine.    The partj  which  landed  to"~ attack him was set  upon by a force of, 200 men and almost  annihilated.  The cannonade of tho gov-  - eminent craft was so vigorously replieo  to and with  so much  better aim that  after an hour sho was driven out of th.  fight, with a loss of 20 men.  It was a glorious victory for0Gray,  and within 30 days thereafter over 1,000  natives occupying other islands came tc  [settle on Wing-Lee and tender allegiance to the king. In 1850 Gray had  8,000 settlers on his island and an arm.  of 800 men. Eis people fished ami gathered shells aud tilled the land, and fron*  all accounts were peaceful and content  ed. The cargo was disposed of slow]-.  and bit  by bit, and the proceeds were  used  for  tho  benefit  of  the commonwealth.  Any government but that of tho Chinese would have settled tho matter in  short order, but after the second attack  there was an interval of almost a yeai  before a third expedition was started  out. By this time Gray had.more cannon and a larger aiid better.drilled army,  and when he learned that a force ol  three war junks and 1,000 men woro to  be sent agaiust him ho was not a bit  alarmed. Wiug-Leo island is ten milos  long by five in breadth. When tho expedition appeared, men woro laudod at  threo different points on tho island, and  tho largest of tho junks took up a posi  tion olf tho wreck and opened a hot  bombardment. . It is a matter .of record  that tho parties landed woro driven off  with sovero loss, and Gray, who was  personally in command of tho hulk and  tho forts, mado it so hot for tho junk  that sho ran out of tho fight. His loss  was only about 20 men, whilo tho expedition suffered a loss of over 200.  Soon aftor tho attack two rebellions  broko out in China at once, and Gray  might havo remained undisturbed for  anothor year but for the action of tho  American and the British governments.  They claimed that he had fitted out  small craft to attack peaceful traders  and was a menace to navigation of tho  Yellow sea. Gray always denied that  any of his peoplo had meddled with any  vessels whatsoever, and ho probably told  tho truth about tho matter.  The insurance companies which had  tho risk on tho bark and had paid over a  vory largo amount of money wore doubtless the prime movers in the affair. Be  it as it may, the demand was made on  tho Chinese govornment, and as it had  other matters in hand just thon it chartered an English shipnamed the Chester,,  fitted hor out with a proper armament  and allowed her captain to select his  own crew. The Chester was armed with  tho best gmi3 to be had, secured about  70 Americans and Englishmen at Singapore, and taking on enough Malays and  Lascars to make hor complement 120  men sho sailed away to attack tho sea  cook who had become king of a wreck  and an island and beaten off the Chinese in handsome style.  Much information was picked up about  Gray and his island before the Chester  sailed. It was known that his army  numbered at loast 900 men, and that ho  had six cannon and plenty of muskets  and ammunition. Tho caliber of his  cannon was small, however, and ho had  nothing but solid shot for them. Tho  Chester had four 32 pounders provided !  with shot, shell and grapo, and her  small arms wero far more effective than  tho cheap muskets Gray had found in  tho hold of tho wrock. It was expected  that he would hear of the fitting out of  the expedition, and as a matter of fact  he knew when to expect it almost to a  day. As he afterward stated, he realized  that the Chester, with her big guns,  would be more than a match for him,  but he would not seek safety in flight.  He had taken a native wife and was respected and beloved by all, and he made-  up his mind to do the best he could and  hope that luck might be with him. Everything was mado ready for defense;  and he was looking for the ship when  she appeared in tbe offing* one morning  at sunrise.  . The first move ou the part of the captain of tho Chester was to demand an  unconditional surrender. This . was  promptly refused. The Chinese government, in its instructions to the captain,  had left it discretionary with him  Whether he should behead all prisoners  or have them conveyed to tho nearest  port for trial. It was expressly stipulated, however, that tho king, if taken  alive, should be sent to Peking for trial  and punishment.. The trial would bo a.  farce and the������punishment something;  horrible.__ ____. _ . ,. ��������� .  NELSON  LOTS  A new Railway under Construction.

TahilliC Kfft'-I .".iduy, .tiny l.tli. I Sir,.  -Tho name of the captain of the Chester was Walter Barnes, an Englishman,  who had been a lieutenant in the royal  navy., Ho was a kind hearted and humane man, and though he. intended to  break up the king's rulo on Wing-Lee  island and drive away all the population  he wished to avoid bloodshed.," When  Gray refused to surrender, the captain  asked for a conference and was permitted to land. Ho put the case plainly to  the king aud offerod to stand out "to sea  and remain away for three days to allow tno islanders to get away, lie convinced Gray of his friendly and merciful intentions, but the man was obsfci-  nnto. Ho was not only a bravo man,  but had tho chivalry of a warrior. His  I'ooplo were not willing to go, aud he  would not skulk away and leave theni  to fight a battle. Ho called a meeting  of the prominent men whilo Captain  Barnes was ashoro, and tho unanimous  decision was tonight.  They wero given the day to think it  over, and it was not until tho morning  of the next day that the Chester took up  a position outsido of the range of tho  small cannon in tho forts and openod  fire. Tho'object, was to drive tho natives  out rather than to kill them, and shells  were used to destroy tho hulk and fort  and tho villages along thVshore. The  bombardment was continued from morning till night, and after the first two  hours it was hoped to see a signal of surrender. By 3 o'clock in the afternoon  tho hulk and tho fort wero knocked to  pieces, and neither bullet nor ball had  reached tho Chester. A boat was sent  ashore, and Gray was asked to surrender. Ho had lost a great many men and  fully realized his helpless situation,- but  he refused to givo iu.  That night" at midnight about 40  small craft, carrying three to ten men  each, pulled off tho shore and attacked  the Chester. She was taken by surprise,  believing the islanders to be thoroughly disorganized, and had a close shave  from being captured. In the attack she  lost 25 men and the islanders a hundred.  It was hoped this would put an end to  tho affair, but next day the king wa3  still defiant, and the ship resumed the  bombardment. No guns were fired in  answer, and about 3 o'clock in the afternoon tbe islanders began to leave in  such craft as remained to them. They  were not molested in their going.   Ia  TRATNS WEST.

Ho hoped that Gray  would go off with-tho rest, but tho sea  cook king rowed out to tho ship and  surrendered himself, as became a ruler  and a warrior.

Aodrcss  THlMlN_RPRINTING*PUBLISHINGCO  NELSON,    B.C.  ingmaii of England has failed lo recognize, his true friend of these two  men. ' Aba recent labour meeting in  Hyde Park when John Buhns attempted to address the crowd he was  greeted with groans and cries of "Why  didu't yon support Kii_i. Haiiijif',  ������������������Traitor." Replying to the. outbreak  of disapproval Bubxh said: "[f yon  don't want lo hear trie, I will go home."  This was-followed by cries of "Go  home." "You are no workingman."  The latter remark is probably correct.  Tlie story contains a moral for wonld-  lielabour agitators.  TOAD   MOUNTAIN.  We regard the bonding of the Starlight by  Mr.  A. E. Humphreys as a  matter of great importance to Nelson.  For some tiine it was supposed that  the  Silver King was to be the only  niineon Toad Mountain.   That it is a  mine of the first order there seems to  he   little  doubt and we  hope  before  long that the operations of the company will prove it to be. so.    It is true  that many  other- claims  weie staked  out,  in   fact   the top of the historic  mountain and much of its flanks are  perfectly plastered  with claims.   The  presence of gold was long suspected  and the operations at the Golden King  some four years ago led to a little excitement, but nothing came of it. Last  year public   attention   was again directed to the possibility of finding gold  there by work that was done on the  Starlight.    Other claims were slaked  in the vicinity and also on  the ridges  on both sides of Give-out Creek and on  Tough Nut Mountain.   Among   these  latter there is excellent showing,  both  of free milling quartz and also of what  appears to be pyritic iron with copper.  Most of the Trail Creek ore is of this  class aud therefore it is not too much  to hope that the ore on  these claims  will be found to. contain  that fourth  element that is in the Trail Creek stuff.  The  bonding of   the Starlight  will  probably do one of two things.   It will  cither  give   an   immense impetus to  Toad Mountain mining or it will give  it a blow from which it will take long  to recover.     Mn.   Humphbeys,  who  has bonded it,  is acquiring properties  all over the district.   He is understood  to represent a syndicate  or company  of wealthy  men at Duluth.   They  recently acquired the Alamo and Idaho  claims iu   the Slocan and   were  not  slow  in   constructing  a concentrator  and are now pushing on a tramway to  these   mines.    In   other  words,   when  they  take   hold   of a  thing they go  energetically  to   work  to develop it.  That is their character, and we trust  to see it exemplilied on Toad Mountain.    Should this work  have a satisfactory result there is no reason  why  Toad Mountain should not equal Trail  Creek.    In fact it  has many advantages over the new field, one of which  is its   proximity to three competing  lines of railway.   For our-own-part-we- look-forward  confidently to a great future for the  home field, and as a natural consequence a largely increased prosperity for our good town of Nelson.  Every stream that Hows down from  Toad Mountain carries gold, fiom Hall  Creek on one side to Forty-nine Creek  on the. other, and that in such large  quantities as fairly to astonish men  accustomed to the riches of California  and elsewhere. All over the "mountain,  from the Whitewater, which is practically on the same range, right, up'to  Nelson itself, ledges containing gold  have been found in every direction,  and moreover there are strong indications that the gold bearing belt, on  which the Trail Creek mines are situated, itself turns northward and forms  the material of which Toad Mountain  is built. , ������  INTO   WHOSE LAP'!  Nearly the whole of the stock in the  Trail Creek mines is held in Spokane.  This means an income to that town of  $'".000 a day.    Beyond this there are at  least 1,000 men iu and around Rossland  and their supplies are principally obtained from Spokane.   The amount of  these may be  estimated  by   the customs returns, which,  by the way,  go  to Ottawa.    British Columbia derives  no benefit from the profit of the mines  or from   supplying the  miners.   She  does  not,  even get   one   cent of the  duties paid out of money taken  from  her fruitful soil.    Will our  merchants  and others never learn  the lesson so  clearly pointed out to them?   There is  yet time.   Trail Creek is only  the  beginning.     Already   the   area  of rich  finds is spreading.    Another year 01  two and Trail Creek  will  have  to  vie  with other camps  for the honour of  producing   most riches.     Into  whose  lap shall they be poured?  -A resolution hn** been proposed in  the Dominion House of Parliament requiring railways to carry members  free. We fa.il to see why these gentlemen should he carried free more than  oilier Canadians. One of the chief  reasons advanced is that the great  railway companies, such as thu Grand  Ti'iink'iiud the C. P. R.. have received  large bonuses of public money. If that  argument is to hold water surely it  applies also l;o members of the Provincial Houses. But in our opinion  members of parliament get enough out  ofthe public directly and indirectly,  and the country would be better  served if no member received a cent  and had to pay his own expenses into  the bargain. We doubt too if the railways can be made to carry members  free. The House can pass all the resolutions on the subject it likes, but the  consent of the companies must he obtained as well, and they are not likely  to give that consent without getting  something worth having for it.

Spencer Balfour has been  brought a prisoner to London. For  years he has defied the extradition laws  and bailled justice in the wilds of '.he  Aigentine Republic. He will be remembered as the central figure iu the  gigantic series of frauds which were  disclosed by the failure of the Liberator Building Society. Ruin was  brought to hundreds of thousands of  people by these crimes and nearly  everyone connected with the series of  companies which congregated round  the Liberator was sent to goal. Balfour, the prime head and centre, alone  escaped. '_   A member of the Canadian House of  Commons from Prince Edward Island  has threatened, from his seat in the  House, that unless, the Dominion will  bore a tunnel between the mainland  and the Island that Province will  secede from the Dominion, lt will  now be in order for Manitoba to  threaten that it will leave the Union  unless the government, will build a  railway to compete with the C. P. R.  and for British Columbia to step out  of the circle unless well there are so  many things we want that we will  wait and see if P. E. I. gets its requirements s-uistied. Then we shall know  how far to open our mouth. ,;  The amazing folly of ignorant people  finds its commonest expression in the  tail twisting of a portion of the  American press. AVe notice .another  instance of the same disease at Port  Townseiid. In that somewhat remote  town the members of some tub thumping sect in council assembled passed x  resolution declaring the atrocities committed on the Armenians to be atrocious. Why the people of Port Town-  send should have a better means of  ascertaining the facis about these so  called atrocities than other people is  not clear. The rest of the world is  waiting until the story is confirmed.  But facts are matters of no importance,  to the people of Port Townsend who  cap their resolution by calmly requiring the President of the United States  to punish those wicked Turks. Is it  possible to conceive that these infatuated asses really supposed their reso-  ���������lutinn was worth anything? And if  it was not what on earth was the good  of passing it and publishing it to the  world except to show the concentrated  essence of stupidity that grows at Port  Townsend.

The  British occupation of Nicaragua is a  case in point. It shared with the murder case in San Francisco the entire  attention of the greater part of North  America. And yet things of interest  were happening. A revolution was  going on in Peru and the streets of  Lima ran with blood. Other revolutions were taking place in Colombia  and in Ecquador.

"  For many years two labour- leaders  have    been   prominent'' in   England.  They   represent   what   is   called   the  labour    interest   in   parliament   and  they have been instrumental in organizing   the    great    strikes    that     have  very    nearly    ruined    the    working-  men   and   caused   endless distress   to  their wives and children.   These  two  men are John' Burns and Kiei. Hardie.    The first is an honest man vainly struggling for what he believes to be  the rights of a suffering class.    He is a  man of high aims, considerable ability  and averse totclaptrap of all kinds..  The other thinks of himself first and  the working man second.    He apparently   recognizes   no   responsibilities  and frequently makes an ass of himself   in  the House of Commons and  elsewhere.   But he is master of that  noisy,     senseless     eloquence     which  catches the uneducated ear.   We believe both these men to be thoroughly  mistaken in their theories of relieving  the sufferings of the poor, but John  Burns   is   honestly   doing   what   he  thinks is right, Hardie simply thinks  of the five   pound note   he gels for  making a speech.  If the Winnipeg "Commercial" prints  any more ol* the same stuff as its paragraph on Trail Creek, which we noticed  last week its usefulness will cease to  exist. If it is so badly informed on  one point, what is the value ofthe rest  of its information? But the paper injures not -only itself by "news" of this  kind. It has "a very wide circulation  in hotels and public places where commercial people are apt to pick it up to  read and it is therefore in a position to  deter men from coming to Kootenay.  Its statements also are so utterly at  variance with our own, and those of  our local contemporaries, that, the public must be informed which is speaking  the truth and which is hot.  The coke used in the Tacoma smelter  comes chiefly from Australia and costs  $9 a ton. Meanwhile the timber used  in Australian mines comes from British  Columbia. We remember that when  smelters were first started at Poit  Pirie in South Australia to treat the  Broken Hill ores iron was required to  help the fluxing. The Australian, like  his Canadian cousin, consumes a quantity of canned provisions. It was only  necessary- to hint that old cans would  he bought at so much a ton to sot all  the Chinamen in the Colonies, collecting them.' But John Chinaman soon  found that only the cans were wanted,  so he submitted them first to a gentle  heat and got all the solder out of them,  a very valuable product. Now they  get the tin off the iron before itgoesto  the smelters and that is worth a good  deal. The ramifications of a big in-  And yet the work- j dustry like a smelter are very wide.
