It will be remembered. that when  the. Dominion undertook to"make the  C. P.'ll., tlie Province ceded to'thein  land along the lino to a breadth 6.-20  miles on each side. During the debate  on the second leading Senator MacDonald introduced the question of the  sovereignity or ownership of minerals  within that belt. 0   .  The Premier stated that the precious1  ��������� metals still went to tlie Province, but  that coal or base metals.would become  the property of the Dominion.  The well known' Vancouver firm of  Ceperely Loewen & Campbell is turning its attention to the Kootenay  Country and one of the partners will  be here shortly. Both this firm and  Messrs. McFarhind & Mahon, the latter of whom is well known here have  the command of English capital and  they have already parties of British  capitalists on their way out to B. C.  when they arrive they will be brought  on here.  We addressed letters some little time  ago to the owners of all the working  mines in Kootenay asking them to be  good enough, to give us full information, without of course disclosing  their own private business, abo.it the  amount of ore shipped, its value and  other definite information as to work  done. This we wanted for use in the  , pamphlet which we shall now very  shortly publish and for which ordi-.s  are coming' in freely. We received  many courteous replies to our letters  giving valuable information and many  of them, total strangers to us personally, thanking us for what we are doing. We now ask those who have not  replied to do so at their earliest convenience.  (From our speoitti Correspondent.)  Rossland has such attractions of its  own, is so thoroughly alive and well advertised that it must be a strong camp indeed that can attract men from the city  0f-Trail Creek. And yet any one who  walks from Trail to Boundary will not  find that he has the road to himself.  Men are pouring into the Boundary  Creek country iu a steady stream, although it is still far' from railways and  there are three high rivers and a bad trail  between it and Trail Creek. Men have  heard of the huge bodies of ore at  Boundary and though they cannot be  expected to believe all they have heard,  tbey have heard enough to make them  anxious to go in aud wee for themselves.  Among the men who have done their  best to advertise the country to the outside world is Mr. Suydani, a man  known in many camps outside of British  Columbia, and amongst those who have  been in to see for themselves are representatives of tbe Parrot Mining Company  of Butte; Mr. Largee, banker of Butte ;  men from Minneapolis, Chicago and elsewhere. Of these who went iu doubt a  large number have not only returned in  faith but have bought largely as a proof  of that faith. To get. down at once to  details. The camp itself is divided into  halt a dozen camps or more, lying within  a radius of (say) 10 miles from Boundary  Falls, aud consists of large deposits of  red oxide of copper, copper glance and  native copper, in what is known as Copper camp; high grade galena, carrying  gold, at Skylark camp; copper sulphides  carrying gold at Deadwood; sulphides  carrying gold, copper and iron; at Greenwood; free milling ore, and'refractory  ores, carrying gold, silver and copper at  White Allwoods and Douglas camps and  free milling ore at the Gold Drop camp.  A great deal of the ore of the districts  so closely resembles Trail Creek ore that  even experts cannot tell them apart, and  like the Trail Creek mines the character  of the deposits found at Boundary is that  they improve with depth. But the feature of Boundary Creek ledges is their  enormous size. Even the local boomers,  if there are such people, have to be content with the bulk, nay more, they  diminish instead of increasing the width  of, their veins. They dare not tell  strangers what' they have ; -they would  rather that strangers went "in and looked  for themselves. We were persuaded to  visit the Suowshoe claim, the property of  a Mr. Deuzler and others, aud to take a  tape with us. It must be clearly understood that the information collected in  this article, though collected with che  greatest care from the most teliable  sources available, had to be obtained in  many instances at second hand. Our  authorities were Mr. W. Gibbs, the gold  assayer; Mr. Snydam, Mr. Kendell, Mr.  Deuzler aud oue of the .owners of the  Copper camp. These men all agreed in  the main and we have taken the lowest  estimate given by any of them as the  basis of our report, and in addition to  that made a personal inspection' of the  Greenwood'camp. As no one knew  which camp we meant to visit and as the  report concerning this camp was proved  t6~b_~accurate~'and'"as-ass"ays~s_"owu "us*  further bore out statements made to us,  it seems fair to conclude that the other  subdivisions of the camp not actually  seen by us were fairly and honestly re  ported by our informants. The Greenwood camp'lies in a deposit of refractory  concentrating ore, easily treated and cou-  ce_ trating 7 to 1. It is stated that Prof.  .Courtis gets from concentrates in this  camp $620 per ton.. The capping in the  camp is iron, the mineral resembles that  found at Rossland, containing Jiine, iron,  silica, sulphur, copper, silver and gold  though there is so little silver in most of  the claims that uo assays are made for it,  the ore is generally oxidized ou the surface*" und in some places to a depth ot 7  feet; the gangue is principally quattz  aud thc assu) s ot fair, average rock run  from S3 to 832 per ton in gold and from  2 to 10 per cent, in copper ou the top, but  here as elsewhere in* the belt it is'an almost invariable, rule that the ore improves as you go down. The Greenwood  claims lie iu a narrow, timbered valley  to the west of which lie th. Nob Hill,  Ironsides, Brooklyn, Phcenix and Stem-  winder; on the east, the Monarch, Rawhide and Suowshoe. There are,* of  course, a lot of .others, but these are the  principal clrims at present.- The Stem-  winder, which was the first we visited,  has been bought,, together with its  neighbour the Phoenix, by the Parrot  Miuing and Smelting Company of Butte,  Montana. In the shaft, at a depth of 28  feet, the ore assays from So to 850 in  gold (assays have been obtained showing  as much as S139,- but no one pretends  that this was fair sample rock) aud from  2 to 23 per cent, copper. On the .Snow-  shoe, we were told that ditches or crosscuts had been cut 70 or 80 feet long, all  in solid ore. The writer himself measured  one over 110 feet in which ore .or crop-  pings of ore could- be traced for the entire length, honest measurement. There  are on this claim, which I take as atype  of the field, three ledges certain and one  suspected, all running S.S. AV., as do.the  ledges generally in this couutry. The  assays, according to the owner, Air. j  Deuzler, run from S3, to $32 in gold and j  G per cent, iu copper on the top, and 1]  should like to say for Mr. Denzler that I!  never saw a man more anxious" to give a [  conservative estimato of everything con- \  nectied with his own claim to which he!  has stuck and upon which he has worked '���������  through good aud bad times alike since !  1S91. It seems to me that if British ,  Columbia ever becomes a prosperous;  country, with . a "small debt and light:  taxes, she will owe it to men like Mr.  Denzler at Greenwood, aud McEachren .  and Mangott at Fairview, and a score of ]  men of their kind who first find their  prize in earth's wildest corners aud theu  stick to it and put the best years of their,  life and bone and muscle not easily  matched iuto a hole in the ground���������  waiting year after year with magnificent  patience for the reward of their labours.  Of the other camps I have not room to  speak in detail. In Summit camp the  ore does not run so high as in Greenwood, but is of the same general character. The Parrot Mining Company of  Butte owns five claims here and is developing them. In one of them a shaft has  beeu sunk 80,feet with a cross cut of 30  feet, showing ore all the way. White's  camp has a lot .of work done upon it. In  the City of Paris there is a 16 foot body  of ore showing, and a shaft sunk 67 feet  proves the old rule that the lower they  go the better the ore becomes. Eighteen  dollars in gold, 7 or 8 per cent, in copper  aDd 20 ounces of silver is the record of  this camp. On the Skylark they claim  70 foot of ore. going 200 ounces in silver  and 1 ounce in gold. Seventy tons have  been shipped from here to Tacoma. The  Copper camp is a huge deposit of red  oxide of copper, in which they have a  body 70 feet wide showing in one place  This ore assays 5 to 53 per cent, copper  and 14 ounces in silver, and reliable  witnesses assert that there are hundreds  of tons lying on the dump which will go  30 per cent, in copper. And so the story  goes, but the trouble is that though the  ore is rich una in those enormous bodies  which most tempt the big capitalists,  nothing can be done with it by the  present owners until a railway comes  along. Marcus is the nearest railway  point and that is 65 miles away; there  are no mills or concentrators or capital to  build any. The ore is there and magnificent water power and just enough big  mining men are buying iu the country to  give the plucky prospectors hope, but  prospects are still' cheap at Boundary  Falls, cheaper probably at 50 per cent,  than at Rossland.  There is only one favour which Boundary Falls asks of the monied meu and  that is to come in themselves with the  best experts they c*n find and decide for  themselves whether anv part of the  world offers better opportunities for the  profitable investment of capital than  their own camp.   ,  The principal free milling propositions  near Boundary Falls are either in White's  camp, in which several runs of rich, free  milling ore occur, or in the Gold Drop  camp.  In White's camp the free ore veins  average about 1 foot in width and run all  the way from So to 8100 a ton in gold.  In Gold Drop the ore ranges from S20 to  380 per ton, but comparatively little is  yet known of this camp, in which fresh  strikes are being made daily.  One word in conclusion. Boundary and  Boundary Falls are not the same thing;  they are four miles apart. One is a town  site, the other a camp. Boundary, or  Midway, is the town site.  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  XELSON.  116 claims were recorded at Nelson between 1 June 1894 and 31 May 1805.  Since the latter date in about 7 weeks, 1_9  have been recorded.  On the motion of Mr. Mara, au amendment was introduced into the Smelter  Bonus Bill to make it include the copper  ores of Toad Mountain and the gold ore  of Trail Creek. The bill was read a third  time on 18th July.  At Forty-nine Creek the Hydraulic  Company-is constructing a Reservoir at  the head of their flume which will hold  enough water to supply the monitors for  12 hours. The water is getting a bit low  "but thisarrangemeu t'whiclr is-generally  adopted in the Cujui* d'Alenes and other  hydraulic countries saves all the water  that would otherwise' be wasted when  the giants are not actually working.  The claims on Sheep Creek, a tributary  of the Salmon River, are attracting considerable attention. At present they are  reached by a trail of some 10 miles in  leugth from Salmon Siding, on the Nelsou & Fort Sheppard Railway, but it is  not unlikely that Mr. Corbin may very  materially aid the development of this  new camp by constructing a wagon road  to it. Many of the' claims are held by  men who mean to expeud some cousider-  able sums on them.  The Hall Mines Co. L'd has placed an  order iu the hands of .Eraser & Chalmers  'or the machinery for a 100 ton smelter.  Beyond the fact that it is" to be here by  the end of the summer we, could gain  no other informaeion. It is only natural  to suppose that having got the machin-.  cry it will not be left to lie about in  the.mud and snow, but that a building  will be erected to contain it. On the  subject of this building the utmost  secrecy prevails. It is, however, to be  placed on the piece of ground which the  company has recently obtained from the  C. P. R., opposite the" end of" the tramway.  There will be no concentrator as only  the first class ore will be treated.  KOSSIiAND.  " It is reported that J. Houston has sold  his interest in the Rossland Miner to D.  3. Bogle.  ���������The C. P. R. Engineers are surveying  a line from Rossland to a point on-the,  Columbia River above the Tin Cup Rapid.  J. C. Davenport has bonded the Lillie  ���������May, which was. originally bonded to C.  Sweeney who let his bond go. Mr. Davenport has also taken the Homestake at  835,000.  The news from Rossland continues to  be of new strikes and fresh bonds. Ore  has been struck on the Columbia. In  the shaft of the Kootenay there is five  feet of absolutely clean ore and the tunnel as well has broken into the ore body  by which it is entirely surrounded, face,  walls, floor and top. The Cliff ore is considered too valuable to beshiDped in bulk  and its owners are sacking it.' The shaft  on the Uncle Sam has reached ore and  its floor seven feet wide is all ore, with  no signs of walls as yet. Reports of a  strike have also come iu from'the Good  Hope and the Sunset, while on the Empress tbey have got a vein closelv resembling that of the Crown Point.  FAinVIEW.  The Haynes estate is to be sold by  tender and it is to be Loped that the new  owner whoever he may be will cut it up  so that the small farmer may have a  look in.  Mr. Cameron who bas -so successfully  managed the Dominion Mineral Co. of  Sudbury Ont, is on his way out to take  charge of the Strntheyre Mining Co's.  property, aud great things are expected  from his management.  TRAIL.  The streets on the townsite are being  cleared and Mr. A. E. Hodgins P. L. S.  is laying out further lots. We are informed that over _0 lots have been sold  since Monday last at an average of $200  per lot. It is also said that four car  loads of lumber are on their way down  from Nakusp, and on their arrival several  new buildings will be commenced. There  is no reason why Trail should not blossom  out into a respectable sized town. It is  undoubtedly the gate of the Trail Creek  camp and is certainly very pleasantly  situated.  EAST   KOOTENAY.  In our issue a fortnight ago we announced the discovery t of a valuable  quartz ledge on the Bug-a-boo creek in  East Kootenay. This creek runs into  the Spillimicheue River about four miles  above its junction with the Columbia and  the new find is 42 miles from Golden on  the C. P. lt. The knowledge of the existence of the ledge is nothing new. It  has been known to prospectors' for a considerable time without attracting any  special attention. A few weeks ago it  occured to the Hon. F. W. Aylmer and  liis partner, Mr. James White to examine  it more closely. They did so, and were  rewarded for their pains. A survey  showed, by well defined croppings that  the ledge ruus for 6500 feet. Beyond the  Bugaboo it runs 'blind.' It cuts the  slate formation ia a N. E. & S. W. direction and averages 12 feet in thickness It  is also reported to aver age $52 in free gold.  Two creeks cut the ledge, the Bug-a-boo  and Driftwood and there is plenty of  timber available close at hand.  LOCAL   NEWS.  Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Sproat, of  New Denver are to be congratulated  on the arrival of a daughter.  A number of people went down to  Rossland by Tuesdays train . among  whom were Harold Selous, E. Apple-  whaite, G. V. Holt, and John Elliott.  Messrs. Hinton and Findley representing respectively the Victoria Iron  Works, and the B. C. Iron Works of  Vancouver are in town.  Consequent on the alteration of the  . C..P. R. time table a change will also  lie found in that of the s. s. Alberta.  Details will be seen on reference to outadvertising clouiiiDS.  Our readers will sympathise with Sir  Joseph Trutch chairman of the Hall  Mines L'd., in the death of his wife,  which occured at Fairfield, Sir Joseph's  residence at Victoria.  We are authorized to state that Mr.  Holdich the new chemist and assayer  at the Silver King will not superintend  the erection of the Company's smelter  as stated by the Ledge.  Now that J. A. Long has come to  look at the question of the locality in  the right light, Jack Campbell will  deposit his $25 with Mr. Charles Ink  and the race will come oil" within  three weeks at Nelson.  Mr. It. C. Campbell-Johnston, | the  well-knowirmining engineer is-in-the  Slocan attending to the properties of  his various clients. He will visit many  of the new camps round Nelson before  going back to Vancouver,  We have just received new price list  from Jas. McMillan __ Co., Inc., 200-  212 First Ave. Noith, Minneapolis,  Minn., hide and fur dealers, and it can  be referred to at this office at any time.  Two new stores are to' be erected  immediately on the lot on Baker Street  on the west side of Mr. McLeods office.  The building will be put up by D. McArthur & Co., and * occupied when  finished by the Nelson Drug Co. and  \V. H. Graham boot and shoe maker.  Wit Ira view of drawing attention to  the ores of Kootenay, we have arranged foi the display of.a -lumber of  samples'from different mines in the  Manor House, Vancouver. These  samples have all been specially assayed for us by Mr. W. Pellew Harvey  and his certificate accompanies each  one.  A new time table came into force on  the Columbia and Kootenay Railway  yesterday. The train to Kobson on  Tuesdays and Fridays now leaves at  11.30 a.-m. instead ol" at 11 as 2 p. ni. i*.  called on the C. P. R. time cards. For  other changes we refer our readers to  the Time Tables which are liberally  displayed in puplic places.  A bazaar in aid .of the Roman Catholic church-will beheld in that building on Monday next. The doors will  be open at noon-and remain open  until all the useful' articles that" the  ladies have made and all the strawberries and ice cream and other good  things that are provided are gone. "In  the evening the three storey cake that  was on view in Dover's window will  be raffled and also other objects as  second and third prizes. Lunch' will be  served at midday and other refreshments all'day long. We hope the affair will be well patronized. j  As an instance of the increasing in- \  terest that is taken outside in this dis- i  trict, we may mention a rapid increase '  in the circulation of the Tin-; Miner, i  Last week 33 extra copies were ordered ���������  from Vancouver and many others from ,  Victoria, the United States and Great [  Britain. Our. columns are largely!  used by the papers on the coast and ;  elsewhere in describing Kootenay  mines and we are endeavouring to do '  all in our power to push the country's '  interests on the outside.

Before beginning to describe the  various localities it may be necessary  to state for the information of our  readers in other countries that the  word "camp" is the American synonyn  for "field." Thus [the Coolgardie gold  field would be called a camp in American parlance. It seems a better word,  too.  NELSON.  The capital of the Kootenay doubtless owes it origin to the discovery of  the Silver King and Kootenay Bonanza  on Toad Mountain in 1886. The town  was laid out and the first sale of lots  took place in 1888. It is pleasantly  situated where the valley of Cottonwood Smith Creek broadens out and  joins the Kootenay River. This latter  is navigable for 20 miles up to the lake,  which is over 70 miles long, and from  thence again up the liver to Bonner's  Ferry in Idaho. Below Nelson, the  Kootenay Rapids commence. A railway runs direct between Nelson and  Spokane, and another, a branch of the  C.P.R., connects it with the navigable  waters on thc Columbia River at Robson. Steamers ply daily to Balfour,  Pilot Bay, Kaslo and other points on  the Lake. kl At Nelson the Government.  Agent and Gold Commissioner resides  and has his office. The Assizes are also  held here, and there are two banks,  branches of the Bank of British Columbia and of the Bank of Montreal.  The town is well built, clean and tidy,  and has many comfortable and picturesque residences.  Nelson has many natural advantages  as a mining centre. Not only, as will  be seen, has it mineral in great abundance and of various kinds in its neighborhood, but it is easily accessible from  all other parts of the KooLenay  country. The nature of the ground is  admirably suited for the building of  smelters, there is ample water in the  Cottonwood and Grohman Creeks for  all purposes. Both these Creeks have-  also falls of from 60 to 100 feet in narrow canyons, and the falls of the  Kootenay River itself would give  power enough to drive all the machinery iu the country.  THE HALL JUNES.  Were discovered in 1880 by a prospecting party from Colville, composed  chiefly of members of the Hall and  Oakes families. The property, which  consistsof four claim. r-he*Sil ver Kiiig;-  the Kootenay Bonanza, the American  Flag and the Koohinoor, and covers  about 56 acres, was sold in 1893 to the  Hall Mines Company of London, England, for something over one million  dollars. The works consist chiefly of  a tunnel 920 feet loug, running S. 05  deg. E., connected by wiiizes and inclines with two upper tunnels and with  an upper drift about 200 feet. long.  Tliere are numerous cross-cuts and also  a lower drift approached by a winze  from tlie main tunnel. The ore is not  in the form of a fissure vein but lies  chiefly in two large bodies, which have  now been very extensively proved by  the workings. In the drift cut above  the main tunnel thu same ore bodies  weie struck, but. were found to be not  so rich as in the original workings. A  winze was accordingly sunk and a  drift excavated at a lower level. Here  again the ore was struck, but this time  it was i icher instead of poorer.  The ore varies very-much in quality.  Assays of specimens have run the  ounces into four figures. The rock in  the lower tunnel will average "from 30,  to 40 per. cent, of shipping oro'going  130 to 150 ounces of silver, 12 to 15 per  cent, of copper and a few dollars in  gold to the ton.  The minerals found in the mine are  Bornite or Peacock copper ore, Tetra-  hedrite or grey copper ore and''Chalco-  pyrites oiv yellow copper ore with occasional iron pyrites and traces of  galena.    J  Up to the present time it has been  the policy of the company rather to  develop their property than to ship  ore. But of late a change has been  made.  A new manager has been appointed,  who in a few.months has "proved" the  mine further than ever it  was  before.  The power drill has  been   freely used,  with the result   that   the   existence of  ore at considerable depths and of increasing richness has  been discovered.  English   companies   move    somewhat  slower than similar  institutions in the  States; hut at last the Hall Mines Company. Tj'd,   has  made a move.   Their  mine is situated nearly 5,000 feet above  Nelson, at a distance of 4h  miles in a  straight line. !. The only means of communication until the present time hav-"  ing been  a   wagon   road,  necessarily  steep and circuitous and long.    Recognizing that   large  bodies  of ore could  not be conveniently  handled in drays, i  a contract has been let  to the Califor- j  nia   Wire   Works   Company   of San \  Francisco and a wire tramway capable ;  of delivering 100 tons  of ore "a day is:  now  in  course of erection.'  It has to |  be in working   order   by   the   end ot* i  August and from then on for three  months the contractors have to deliver  100 tons a day at its lowest terminus in  Nelson. Here huge bins are bcintarcon-  structed close to the line of the C7P.R.,  and the company has ordered the  machinery for a 100 ton smelter from  Messrs. Fraser & Chalmers of London  and,Chicago. It is to be delivered by  the end ofthe summer.  In the immediate neighbourhood of  the Silver King are many other claims,  some with a good deal of development  work done on them. Most of them  contain galena, but those which are  attracting attention at present are the  gold bearing properties. Of these the  Starlight and Athabasca have recently  been bonded at $30,000 and $50,000 respectively, and genuine work is being  pushed ahead on both of them. Mr.  A. E. Humphreys, the representative  of a Duluth syndicate, who holds many  large properties in this district, has  bonded the Starlight. This claim has  a ledge which contains a quantity,of  free milling gold quartz. Its. owners  had done sufficient work upon it to  prove the ledge for over 500 feet,' and  since Mr. Humphreys has taken it the  further work he has done has had such  good results that he is about to put,in  a stamp mill to treat the ore oh the  spot. The Princess, a claim on the  wagon road containing a copper ore  with gold, has also been recently  bonded to Mr. McVicar of the No. 1  mine at Ainsworth. The creeks flowing down from the mountains are all  more or less auriferous. On the northwest side a local hydraulic company  has established works on Forty-Nine  Creek, which are now in full swing.  After the first 120 hours' work, which  consisted largely of removing bouldiers  and other "dead" work. $o,.00"was  picked np off the bed rock in-front1 of  the sluice boxes and nut of the .first  two or three boxes themselves.- The  company has a practically unlimited  head of water at a height of 300feet in"  length.  Close to Forty-Nine Creek is Eagle  Creek, on which is situated the Poor-  man, a free milling quartz mine, which  has been in operation for some time, -  It is privately held and has more than  repaid its owners for their outlay.  They have a 10 stamp mill running and  four vanners collecting the concentrates. (  Between these two creeks is situated,  the Royal Canadian, another claim  with a ledge of free milling quartz,  which has just been sold toCalifornian  mining men. -.'; ���������  AU   this slope   of   the  mountain is -  plastered   with  claims,   on   many "of  -which���������good-specimens-are- obtained.-���������  Further down the river is Rover Creek  on which the Whitewater claims are  situated.   News is   just to   hand that'  these have been advantageously sold,  but the rumour requires confirmation. *  On the opposite side of the hill is  Hall Creek, which runs into the Salmon River. It is very rich in alluvial  gold, but the^huge boulders'-render it  difficult to work. There are claims on  its banks with rich showings of free  milling and other gold ores.  The Salmon River, which rises in  the Ymir Mountains to the south of  Nelson and runs into the Pendd'Oreille  has long been known as a'placer  ground. Recently discoveries of mineral of similar character to the Trail  Creek ores have been, made on the  mountains around, particularly on,a  hill draining into Sheep Creek,-one of  its tributaries. Here a number of  claims have been staked on what appears to be a vein of very considerable"  extent. Many of the holders are men  of some little means and they intend  to do sufficient development to show -  the real nature of their property and  not to satisfy themselves with complying only with the conditions made by  the (iovernment, which calls for $100  worth of work per annum to secure ,  "the lease.      . ��������������������������� ���������  Discoveries of low grade free milling ,  ore have lately been made on  almost'  all sides of Nelson, but as they remain  at present mere prospects we make no  further mention of them.  Before leaving Nelson,   though  it is  scarcely   within    the    scope   of   this  pamphlet we may mention that on the .  Kootenay River below Nelson some of  the finest trout fishing in  Canada is to  be had.   The Canadian Pacific-Railway  runs along the bank ofthe river   the  whole way and for the convenience of  tourists the company has erected two -.  or three cottages in the neighborhood -  of   the best   spots.     The scenery   is  magnificent, as indeed it is throughout  the Kootenay country.  Leaving Nelson by steamer" we proceed up the outlet or west arm of  Kootenay Lake, passing many claims  of which the Ray of Hope, a.free  milling, low grade property, is expected  to attracusnme little attention. After  proceeding for 20 miles we reach the  Lake.- At the point" of outlet is the ..  little town of Balfour. There is not  much-mining in this immediate vicinity  though there are plenty of claims laid  off, hut the fishing is .excellent and  there is a comfortable hotel with all  conveniences of boats and steam  launches, erected purposely to accommodate sportsmen.

There is not in tho world a more ignoble character than tho ��������� niero money  gotting American, insensible to every  duty, regardless of every principle, bent  only on amassing a fortune and putting  his fortune only to tlio basest uses,  ���������whether these uses ho to speculate in  Etocks and wreck railroads himself or  to allow his son to lead a life of foolish  and expensivo idleness nnd gross debauchery or to purchase souio scoundrel  of high social position, foreign or native, for his dnught-r.

Thoro aro not very many of them,  but thero is n very great number of men  who approach moro or less closoly to  the typo, aud in so far as they do so approach thoy aro curses to tho couutry.  The man who is content to lot politics  go from bad to worso, jesting at the  corruption of politicians; tho man who  is content to _.o thc maladministration  of justice without an immediate and  resolute effort to reform it, is shirking  his duty and is preparing the way for  infinite woe iu the future.  Hard, brutal indifference to the right  and an equally shortsightedness as to  the inevitable results of corruption and  injustice are baleful beyond measure,  and yet they are characteristic of a  great many Americans who consider  themselves perfectly respectable and  who are considered thriving, prosperous  men by thoir easy going fellow citizens.  ���������Theodore Roosevelt in Forum.  Mr. Hawthorne Was Satisfied.  Nathaniel Hawthorne was a kind  hearted man as well as a great novelist.  While he was consul at Liverpool a  young Yankee walked into his office.  Tbe boy had left home to seek his fortune,' but evidently had not found it  yet, although he had crossed the sea in  search. Homesick, ��������� friendless, nearly  penniless, he wanted a passage home.  The clerk said that Mr. Hawthorne  could not bo seen and intimated tbat  the boy was not an American, but was  trying to steal a passage.  The boy stuck to his point, and the  clerk at last went to the. littlo room and  Eaid to Mr. Hawthorne:  "Here's a boy who insists upon seeing  you. He says he's an American, but I  know he isn't."  Hawthorne camo out of the room and  looked keenly at the eager, ruddy face  of tho boy.  "You want a passage to America?"  "Yes, sir."  "And you say you're an American?"  "Yes,-sir."     -���������  "From what part of America?" ������  "United States, sir."  "What state?"  "New Hampshire, sir."  "Town?"  "Exeter, sir."  Hawthorne looked at him for a minute beforo asking him the next question:  "Who sold the best apples in your  town?"  "Skimmiik Folsoni,. sir," said the  boy, with glistening eyes, as the old familiar byword brought up tho dear old  scenes of home.  v, "It's all right, sir," said Hawthorne,  to" the clerk.

The two leading features of the famous sermon preached by Dr. Sacheverell in St. Paul's cathedral on Nov. 5,  , 1709, which led to his trial and all the  paper war whioh raged around his name,  were the denunciation of religious tolerance and the upholding of  the doo-  -'trine"of"n'onresistance"t6~the"_c"rdwh~in  its extremest form. The Sacheverell  pamphlets consist of short and catchpenny lives of the reverend hero, several  sermons preached by him at various  dates, attacks by'dissenting writers on  such sermons and their' preacher, and  other sermons and replies in support of  the high church doctrines.  = The list of Sacheverell pamphlets is,a  record of s.rmons, speeches, answers,  letters, replies, thought, vindications  and considerations, with endless variations of title, in long aiid wearisome  procession.-' Tho total number of distinct  and separate' publications connected directly or indirectly with tho controversy,  enumerated by Mr. Falconer Mad::  in his "Bibliography of Sachoveroll, '���������  amounts to no less than 220, and most  of these aro tracts," broadsides and  pamphlets pf the most ephemeral kind.

One day the vicar,  while visiting a poor old woman who  was nigh unto death, thought he would  try to get her consent to .be buried in  tho roomy northern plot.  He began by." assuring her that the  common aversion to burial in any particular portion of consecrated, grouud  - was a silly prejudice and'a foolish superstition. Then ho besought her, as a  personal favor to himself and as au example to others, to permit her body to  be buried in the northern plot of the  churchyard.  The old woman thought it all over  for a few minutes and then answered,  "Well, sir. as you seem to think as ono  part of ihe churchyard is as good as another, and that, it makes no difference  where we be put,.perhaps you'll gie us  a lead."

At last the smelter rumours with  which the air has been thick for some  weeks past are beginning to tako  shape. A 100 ton stack is to be built  at Nelson to treat the Stiver King ore.  The machinery has actually been  ordered from Messrs. Fraser, & Chal-  ineis and it is to be here by the end of  the summer. So much is fact. But a  mystery still shrouds the building of  the smelter. We know indeed where  it is to be located, but the secrecy surrounding it. leads us to ask who is going to build it, and,from whom the  Hall Mines Company got its specification on which the machinery was  ordered. There is certainly no one in  the employ of the Company at the  present time who is sufficiently up in  the smelting business to do so. Itis  possible that some arrangement may  be afoot with one of the great smelter  companies. For the sake of the town  we hope it may be so, because that will  be a guarantee that theie will be no  mistakes, no delay in the initiation of  the enterprise and it will be likely to  be a very much larger affair than if  the Hall Mines people put up a plant  simply to treat (heir own ore.  On I he other hand the fact must not  be lost sight of that, the Silver King is  every day proving, itself richer and  richer. If we remember aright, Mk.  Koepkl calculated that there were  five or six millions of dollars worth  of ore in sight, and since his day  further discoveries have been made.  iThere are people to-day who say that  the Silver King mine may become one  of the biggest ore producers in the  world. If that is so it means a big  thing for Nelson. The Broken Hill  mine in South Australia produces  about 10,000 tons*;! week and treats it  on the spot, employing in one way aud  another about 5,000 men. It will be a  long time before the Silver King has  such a product as that, but it might  easily work up to one-tenth of it and  put out and treat 1,000 tons a week.  Carrying out the , proportion this  would require the services of 500 men,  a matter of no small importance to  ���������-Nelson.   ,  THE NELSON AND FORT SHEPPARD   __= ���������TERMINUS.   done in the letter. If, on the other  hand, the Government does not recognize the title to which the C. P. R������  lay claims, let them say so and bring  the matter to an issue at once. If the  title is weak no one will know it better  than Mr. Ahbott and he will take  care that the conditions imposed on  Mr; Corbin . are neither aiduous or  degrading.  .���������/ GRA VE RESPONSIBILITY.  It is freely reported that at a meeting in Rossland the other day for the  purpose of forming a Miners' Union  Mr. Boglk introduced to the meeting  a MR. E. Boyce, who it is said was  one of the ringleaders among those  dastardly murderers who have made  the name of a Coeur d'Alene Miners'  Union infamous throughout the world.  We sincerely trust that the report is  not true either that Mr. Bogle, became as it were sponster for Mr.  Boyce, or that if he did this is not  the Ed. Boyce of Coeur d'Alene infamy.  Mr. Bogle was, we understand,  educated at the ancient and honourable University of Edinburgh, one of  those noble institutions whose sons  consider themselves made gentlemen  by the mere shelter of her academic  wings. In accepting that heritage  they accept also a code of honour and  morals that is respected throughout  the world, that gives them a standing  as men of principle wherever they  may wander and which calls for the  strictest integrity and uprightness on  their part to maintain the splendid  dignity of this ' honourable brothei-  hood.  Mr. Bogle is one of these men. It  remains with him to clear his character of the reproach of mixing with  assassins and murderers and none will  proclaim his acquittal louder than ourselves if he will openly deny it.  The crimes committed by the  Miners' Union in the Coeur d'Alene are  alive in the memory of us all. We do  not refer now to the expulsion of nonunion men or to the interference with  rates and wages or conditions of  labour, but with diabolical black murder itself. Crimes that sent a thrill  of horror throughout the civilized  world, aud made honest men wonder  thatitheir own flesh and blood could  be guilty of such fiendish villainy.  As we have said before, Miners'  Unions,' or any other union, may be  productive of much good if conducted  on proper lines' and in harmony with  the Arbitration and Conciliation Act  of last session. This Act, by the way,  provides complete machinery for settling all disputes without the trouble  and expense of founding a Union, with  its useless and extravagant secretaries  and treasurers and presidents and officers of all kinds. Still if men like the  expense their is no harm in their paying these people to lead them by the  nose. But we are certain that we give  utterance to the wishes of all honest  miners in this community when we  say that they want to have nothing to  do with any of the leaders of the  Coeur d'Alene crimes, and a man who  introduces any of them to this country  is bringing., upon it a danger to its  peace and a menace to its prosperity  . We printed'last week the account  of an interview which a representative  of The Mixer had with Mr Abbott,  of the C. P. R., relative to the position  of affairs between his Company and  Mr. Corbin's right of way into Nelson. In effect,-Mr. Abbott said that  they had granted Mr. Corbin free  entry into Nelson on one condition.  This implies that the C. P.'R. considers  that they have the right to our foreshore, or they would not be able to  impose conditions on Mr. Corbin.  That light, it is said, depends upon a  lettei written by the Hon. John  Robson, the then Premier of British  Columbia, some years ago. If that  right is hard and fast, binding and  legal, then the great railway company  *is clearly within its powers in demanding any conditions it likes from the  other railway. If on the other hand  the concession made by Mr. Robson is  only one which the present government feel themselves compelled to  recognize out of a spirit of-'loyalty to  the acts of their late leader, even  .though unauthorized by the Ministry  of the day, and which would not bear  the strain of a legal interpretation,  then we think the C. P. R. would be  well advised not to burn their enemies  . boats. ���������  ��������� The condition thev have imposed on  Mr. Corbin is that room shall be left  them to build an independent line between Nelson and Five Mile Point. To  those familiar with this locality; which  at its eastern end is nearly a perpendicular cliff, it does not appear possible  to construct another line except by  carrying it out on trestles, or by some  other costly process. It is, however,  possible that to engineers this construction may be a simple matter.  Meanwhile Nelson wants the railway it is entitled to. If the C P. R.  has an indefeasible right, it is the duty  .of the Government, who gave, or at  any rate acknowledge that right, to  help Mr. Corbin" out of his trouble  and to enable him to carry out - the  terms they themselves imposed on  him, in the spirit as he has already  NOTES AND COMMENTS.  The news from the East is hard to  follow. The Japs are trying to make  Formosa submit to their sovereignty,  But_it_app.ears_to_be_a_difflcyIt business.  and takes a lot of fighting. Just at  this time, too, the climate is somewhat sultry in that little known island  and the outfits which carried the Japs  through a winter's campaign in Korea  would be almost enough to smother  them during a Formosa summer.  ���������' The latest newsfiom England shows  that about 400 out of <V71 members are  elected, in which the Unionists have a  majority of some 150. There is. no  doubt that England is conservative at  heart. She likes to be governed by  men noble not only in their deeds but  in their descent. Occasionally she gets  a surfeit and flies for relief to the bitter democratic springs of liberalism.  The cure is sharp and quick and then  the country flies hack to its old love  with a rush. The crisis of 1895 is an  exact parallel of 187_.  Under the heading "A Rumour Realized" we discourse elsewhere on the  building of the Nelson smelter. Itis  almost certain that another smelter is  to-be built, at once in the district somewhere, and the latest idea oh the matter is that it will be built at Trail  under the auspices of Mr. Humphreys.  It was reported here that the. bricks  for the purpose were actually ordered  though, at Trail itself nothing was  known about it. The latest- "War  Eagle" rumour is that the War Eagle  itself and the Josie have been bought  by Mr. Rockfeller, of Standard Oil  fame.
