We have received a copy ot* the  report and balance sheet which wns  laid before the ordinary meeting of  shareholders held in London ou December 17 last. The report describes  the development work carried out during the past year, stating that a winze  has been sunk in thc main ore body to  a depth of 135 feet from No. I tunnel  and that it is still in ore. In the first  ore body a shaft has been sunk for 05  feet also in ore. A tunnel No. 5 has  "been driven from a point 210 feet  below lhe entrance to No. 4 tunnel on  the main vein which shows at the surface. This tunnel is in 85 feet on the  main ledge and shows more or less ore on  the whole of its length. Good orehas been  proved beyond this point by the diamond  drill which leads to the supposition that  the ore body is continuous. Prospecting  work with the diamond drill bas also been  cur lied on to the south of No. 4 tunnel on  tbe Silver King iind the existeuce of two  separate ore bodies has been proved.  The first was struck at 280_feet from the  surface and continued to 340 feet. The  second was struck at 416 feet and continued to 44!) feet. The ore shows heavy  yellow and grey copper with traces of peacock. Another hole was sunk to endeavor  to prove the depth of the vein and oie was  tapped nt 820 feet showing grey copper.  This was the extent of the boring rods  and work was suspended until next summer. On the Kootenay Bonanza boring  operations also proved satisfactory.  The report goes on to describe the  arrangements with the C. P. 11. as to  land, and tlie probability of the company  receiving about 50 cents per ton as a  bonus from the Dominion government.  It proceeds;  "The tramway has now been completed  and although some hitches occurred at  the start, is now in operation nnd bringing down ore to the bins at tlie rate of  10 tons to the hour.  The smelting works are also nearing  completion."   ���������  The works on the gold lead discovered  ou the Daylight have .been suspended  owing to a large influx of water which  necessitates pumping machinery. The  Directors think well.of this lead and have  acquired several adjoining claims but are  not prepared at present to go' to the  expense of pumping machinery.

On the Alhabaska, an adjoining  claim to the Princess, Messrs. Stanley  and Gerard art* pushing in a tunnel to  cut the vein.  Mr. Hold itch, the Hull Mines assayer  and chemist, has now transferred his  quarters from the mine to the new  assay office at the works, which is the  most convenient and complete of the'  kind in the Province.  Messrs. -Mrtshei* and Mon.nee have  made the second payment on their  bond on the Princess. This claim,  which is the property of Messrs. Nee  lands and Gerard, is situated on the  Silver King wagon road, about 3 miles  from town. Sid Toy has a contract to |  run a tunnel of 100 feet to cut the vein.  He has a day and night shift on the  work, which is now in about 25 feet.  NAKUSP.  [From our own Correspondent.]  Happy New. Year.  Xmas day passed off quietly but  pleasantly.  A capital dance came oil at the Madden House on New Year's Eve.  The C. & K. S. N. Co.'s new ice breaking scow is nearly completed, but no  signs of ice for it to break yet.  Captain Fitzstubbs, gold commissioner  for this district, oame in on Sunday's  train from Sandon on his way to Nelson.  P. Genelle & Co. are- still busy with  their saw mill. They expected to close  down last week. They have still a number of logs in the boom.  A cbinook wind and thaw last week  lowered the snow to less than half what  it was, but the fall since then bas raised  it once more to a respectable depth.  The dance given by Mrs. Crawford at  the Hotel Naknsp on Christmas eve was  pronounced by the large number present  a most enjoyable one.  The N. & S. 11. K. has so far. had no  trouble with suow. The snow plow has  been only once out, as far as Three  Forks, but returned behind the engine  on Sunday.  The Str. Nakusp on Saturday took np  a scow load of lumber and timber for  the freight shed and station at" Arrow  Head, the terminus of the Arrow Head  branch, at the mouth of the Columbia  river. Mr. Clements, who is in charge  of the buildings, also went up, as h.  finds that he is not required at Sandon  at present.  MR. KELLIE M. P. P.

Mr. Kellie believes, from personal observation, that the large district from the  international boundary to and including  the Big Bend, will before'-loujr iiave many  mining camps quite as important as  Rosslaud or the Slocan. The -Big Bend  country, which has been hampered iu the  past for want of proper communication,  is, he considers, one of the greatest gold  fields in the province. A new discovery  was_made-recently-at-the head of-the  north fork of the Illeeillewaet- and Downy  creek, about 20 miles from Albert canyon;  on the Canadian Pacific Railway. The  quartz runs, from 200 to 400 ounces in  silver and very high in gold. .Mining  men who have examiued that vicinity say  there is a large section of fine mining  country awaiting the prospector there.   *'  The Lardeau and Fish Creek districts  are now going ahead and will become  heavy producers in the immediate future.  In the Illeeillewaet three mines are being  worked on a considerable scale this winter���������the Lanark, Maple' Leaf and Isabella���������with the prospect ot several others  commencing work iu the spring, A  conservative estimate of the output of  West Kootenay for the next vear is, ho  believes, 810,000,000. under favorable  conditions. Within three years this  should increase to at least ������25 000,000,  per nnuuni.  J. M. Kellie, makes one statement which  it will be ilitlioult for him to substantiate,  . iz , that a large amount of ore is being  held, back to be treated by the Kootenay  smelters. It is a fact thnt no ore is beiug  held for that purpose. It is true, however, that there is a large nmouut of ore  being held for shipment, but the probabilities are that more than two-thirds of  the product of the Kootenay mines will  find its way to tlie American smelters, as  usual.- ��������� -  According to ��������� recent estimates, the  Trail smelter .will only handle about 33  per cent of the product of the mines iu  and about Rosslaud. As has been stated  in the columns of the Spokesman-Review  the Pilot Bay smelter will handle about  100 tons, daily. The Nelson smelter will  have difficulty in handling its own product. Then what is to become of the  output of the mines? Slocan, 20,000 tons;  Trail creek, 125,000 tons less 50.000 tons  of the latter which will be handled at  Trail, leaving 95,000 tons to be treated  somewhere. This estimate does not  include ore from Ainsworth, Lardeau and  "many of the smaller camps in the district.  It seems"that with Mr. Kellie the wish is  father to the thought, aud'that caused  him to make wild statements without  complete investigation.���������Colonist.  . It is reported that the buchelors   ot  Nelson intend giving a ball.  ���������Jim Yuill now lies *at Kaslo in a pre-  ciuios condition suffering from n severe  wound in the throat inflicted by himself.  C. W. West is building u stable and  ollice ou Baker street at the corner of  Hall street. He will eventually establish  a wood yard ut the same place.  Tlie snow has been very heavy in the  Slocan. The Nakusp line has kept open,  and the Knslo line alter a blockade;of i>  day or two has got itself clear ugaiu.  Sir Joseph Trutch, chairman of the  Hall mines arrived in Nelson on.Tuesday  last. Messrs. C. G. Dixon and H. Abbott  of the Great Northern Railway were also  iu town during the week.  On Thursday afternoon John Fit;-  willinm aud Emma Church were united  in the bonds of holy wedlock, George H.  Morden, Methodist minister otticiatiur.  The happy couple left for their home at  Rossland Friday morning.  Since Nelson became a port of entry in  August last revenue to the amount of  $88, 551 has been collected. During the  same period her exports have amounted  to $735,839 without counting the ore  which has gone out via Revelstoke. This  is still credited to New Westminister. Its  value is at least 8248,000 which brings  the total nearly np to a million.  The public meeting called by Mr,  Hume M. P .P. for to-night to discuss  the estimates for public works tor Nelson  is postponed until iWodnesday, Jan, 15  at 8 p.m. in the Oddfellow's Hall. Mr  Hume proposes to hold meetings at Kaslo  on the 6th., Three Forks on the 7th., Sandon on tho 8th. and New Denver on the  9th. unless blockaded by bnow.  The Nelson skating rink will be open  to-night. The recent hard frosts have  provided a fairly good surface which will  be perfect after another flooding. The  Nelson Brass Band will be present and  its services have been engaged for one  night a week and all carnivals throughout the season. From now on tbe rink  will be open on week days both in the  afternoon and evening.  For the first time a really good theatrical company has paid Nelson a visit and  nave played every night so far to crowded  Louses. Nothing but the limits of the  room prevented them having still larger  11 o u ses. The plain English of this is that  Nelson needs a theatre or some building  wii'.-'u could be used as such, and also be  available for other gatherings.  With the New Year the weather became  decidedly colder. On the night ot the  first' the thermometer registered thirty  degrees of frost and pa the second  uropped'lo four degrees telow. zero. Ou  Eriday tbe weather became milder with a  heavy fall of snow. The outlet opposite  Nelson was frozen over on Thursday  night. Captain McMorris of the e. s.  Nelson reports that coming from Kaslo  _.��������� met the ice at 10 Mile Point and from  there on to Nelson it was thick, but his  boat una uo difficulty iu br_n-_,i_g through  it-  Mr. T. Vaughan Hughes who has  recently visited the Kootenay writes up  a good word for the country in the  columns of the London Mining Journal.  He expresses his surprise at'tbeiudiffer-  ance of Londoners to the claims of B. C.  when they are frantic after investments  in- other places. As compared with  South Africa or Western Australia he  points out that we have "'better internal  means of communication, easier nnd less  costly access and as far as minerals are  concerned-a_veritable-_',L.and_oiP_grnjse"  in regions west ot the Canadian Rookies."  . The Carlton Company of Players  opened in Nelson on Wednesday last for  a season of four nights, playing a dilfi-  erant piece each uight. On Wedneday  the prize drama "Destiny" was played to  a full and appreciative audience. Ou  Thursday "Hazel Kirke" attracted a  crowd that packed the Oddfellow's Hall  to its extreme limits. Last night "Ole  Olesen" kept a large audience in roars of  laughter. To-night is the last night of  the season and a double bill has beeu put  ou consisting of the two peices "Complications" and "Mistaken Fnthers." The  Company after leaving Nelson intends  going to Revelstoke if the river keeps  open.  WRECK OP THE AKE0W0N ARROW  LAKE ARM.  NEW  YEAR'S   BALL.  The Oddfellows' Ball which catne off  in their own hall on New Years Eve  was a great success. Nearly 100 persons were present and dancing was  .kept up to a late hour. The floor was  very good and the music under the  leadership of Mr. Harper .was of course  excellent.  back the scow and the hull of the boat,  with the engine in her. The boiler  was gone, us also all the housing and  pilot, house. Mr. P. M. -Tingling, who'  until ten days ago was half owner, and  engineer of the boat, cumo in from  Tin ee Forks on Tuesday and went up  on'ihe Nakusp to aid __!-niello's party  in I he search. He returned with them  and is now preparing grappling irons,  etc., to return to lhe scene of the  wreck by the next boat, and endeavor  to recover the bodies.  The Arrow was built in Revelstoki-  in 1803 and brought here the same year  by Messrs. Yinglingand Vanderburgh,  since when she has been running on  Upper Arrow Lake to Revelstoke nm>  Liudciui und has proved a.paying boat.  Vnndei-burg bought Yingling out onl>  a short time since, this being hi ,  svi-und trip only.  Captain Vanderburgh leaves a wife  and three small children here to mourn  his loss. William Walker has n wife  and two daughters in Selkirk, Man.  Tbey were coming out. here in n short,  time to reside with their husband and  father. The greatest sympathy is felt  by all for the relatives of the aeceased.  PRESBYTERIAN CHRISTMAS  TREE.  - - (From our own Correspondent.) Q  Nakusp, Jan. 2.���������Ou the arrival of  the Str. Nakusp, on Monday evening,  Lhe town was electrified by the report  that the Arrow, a small passenger  boat from here, hud been found bottom  up on the Arm, about a mile and a half  from Arrow Head. The facts as far  as can be ascertained are these: On  Thursday, the 20th of December, C. W.  Vanderburgh, owner of the Arrow  with William Walker, of this place, as  engineer, left" here. to meet the Str  Nakusp at the mouth ot the river, to  take an outfit of horses, etc., into the  Lardeau. This she did,, discharging  her cargo at Lardeau on Friday, leaving there the same day- to come to  Nakusp. with her scow in tow. That  was,the last seen of her. until a report  was brought to the Wigwam that she  had been seen bottom up on the Arm  on Sunday. On Monday, Gold Commissioner Graham, with Constable  Vickers, came from Revelstoke, and  with Captain P. Wilson, started n  the Illeeillewaet to prove the correctness of the report. They found the  boat turned bottom up on theshote  about a mile and a half from the  mouth of the-river. The scow was  attached to her with a tow line and  safe with the row boat on the scow.  No signs whatever could be found of  the ill-fated owner and engineer, although - the shore was searched into  Thompson's Landing. On Tuesday, a  party headed by Mr. J. Gen<ille in P.  Genelle & Co.'s tug, went in search of  thu bodies, but returned on Wednesday night without having obtained  ' any  trace of  them.    They  brought  The Christmas tree entertainment at  the Presbyterian church on New Year's  night was well attended. It speaks  volumes for the citizens of Nelson, that  such a large audience one-tenth of  whom were obliged to stand for upj  wards of two hours, should give such  wrapt attention to any programme,  however interesting.   A more  exem-  Elary meeting, in this respect could  ardly be possible. The programme,  preceding the distribution of presents,  opened with the. long metre doxology,  Air. Jowett presiding at the organ in  his usual acceptable manner.  The recitatious by the children were a  pleasing feature but the hoop drill by  eight little girls, trained by Mrs. Hamilton, elicited expressions .of unbounded  delight. The following are the names  of the children who took part in the  graceful evolutions, Misses M. Sansom,  F. Sansom, A. Sturgeon, E. Booth, E.  Mackie, B. Johnstone, M. Horton, F.  Etter. The distribution of gifts was  most pleasiug to the children all of  whom, together with their little brothers  and sisters at home and those who from  sister schools rendered such kiudl.v  assistance, were in some way remembered  by the committee. A number whose  friends sent in gifts in addition to those  given by the school were perhaps, a little  more fortunate, but it is hoped all were  pleased and none forgotten. After singing the National Anthem, the benediction  was pronounced and the meeting  dispersed.  REPORTED   INVASION    OF   THE  TRANSVAAL.  Last Thursdays American papers  contain a story which it is hard to believe. This is no less than the. invasion  of the Transvaal by a British armed  force, Our readers will remember t hat  we pointed out, some little time ago  that there was likely to be trouble  owing to the fact that the English and  American miners in that countrv have  no voice in its affairs though outnumbering the Boers 3 to 1. The Boer  government takes every advantage of  its position to tax the miners to (hint most and affairs had reached a crisis.  The'immense development of the mines  is entirely owing to the British and  Americans, the Boers being altogether  an agricultural and pastoial"-people  and it was felt that something would  have, to be done, but it was hoped that  diplomacy might be able to etfett the  required arrangements.-  Without, however, waiting,for this  peaceful method to be tried, lhe story  comes by way oi the American press  that Dr. Jamiesoh an officer of the  Biitish South Africa Company has invaded the Transvaal with a force of 700  men. The British South Africa Company is a private concern having no  connection with the government other  than Unit it received its charter from  it, and this action of Dr. Jami-'son's  was at once repudiated by Mr. Chinn-  berlian Colonial secretary, Sir Hercules  Robinson Governor of the Cape nnd  Mr. Cecil Rhodes Premier of Cnpe  Colony. The action of Dr. Jamie.oii  has been officially repudiated by proclamation and IJritLsh subjects warned  io refrain from aiding him.

Perhaps  it  is only natural  that the American  papers should seize on  this piece  of  news as a fu-ther instance of LCnglands  territory grabbing propensities, but a3 ;  a matter of fact as far as the news in j  their own  telegrams shows, England  has nothing to do with it and that it is j  entirely a private filibustering expedi:  tion  of Dr.  Jamieson.     It   looks too  uncommonly like a hoax.  SAVED   FROM   THE   SEA.     ,  The rescue of the Struthnevm is one  of the most wonderful storieB of ihe  sea of modern times. She sailed from  Tacoma on 12.October last wiih a number of wealthy Chinese and Japanese  as passengers, as well as many Chinese,  paupers who were being deported by  the U. S. govern men t. She finally  left Victoria.on October 13 with 173.  passengers and 37 crew, i'or Yokohama.  Twenty days afterwards her owners  had recieved no news of her and speculation as to fate was rife. Nothing was  heard until December 7, 55 days after  she started.  "When the Strathnevis was about 800  miles west, of Carmanah Point, Vancouver Island, three days out from  Victoria, she broke her main shaft.  She was sighted by the John Gambles  in this condition, and. the news  brought to Victoria and telegraphed  all over the country. It lead to renewed  apprehension for the vessel's safety-  and H. M. S. Royal Arthur, The Danube, Costa Rica and the tug Mischief  started out to find her. The mail  steamers Tacoma and Empress of  India had special orders to keep a look  out for her. All of this failed to find  any traces of the missing ship and  anxiety increased. The reason of their  failure, is easily accounted for. Sea- :  men held that the prevailing currents"  would drive her northwards, whereas  exactly the opposite occurred and she  drifted southwards. When finally  picked up she was nearer San Fran:  cisco than Puget Sound.  The story of the accideut is told by  the log book." On October 20, everything having previously gone smoothly  and the vessel doinjt. 10 knots, there  came a sudden terrific crash. Her ,  shaft broke off close in the hub and the  propeller dropped to tbe bottom of the  sea.  For two whole mouths she drifted  about. " Every effni't was made to put  sail on her. Her own small masts  were used as far as possible and = jury  masts were rigged. But in spite* of  these efforts the sails were not siiffi- <  ciently powerful to do anything except  to steady the ship. ;,  On the November 11) the barque  John Gambles was .sighted and after  she^passed on another weary time wai  spent riding the billows on a sail-less  ocean. As soon as they found that the  vessel was driving southwards, her  officers made every endeavor to get  her into the track of tbe steamers  running between Victoria and Australia, and at last on Decern ber. 18| the  Canadian-Australian liner "Miowera,  Captain Slott, was sighted.' She" at  once approached the disabled vessel  and took ber in tow. In spite of having" strict mail contract .'.lime to keep  theMiowera stuck to her charge;for  fivedays. Several times, owing tothe  heavy seas the hawsers parted, but'  were repaired again.  At' last on the morning of Monday  December 23 v������hen about 15 miles froni  Cape Flattery the Miowera's two hawsers parted and in the terrible *-ea that  was running il was deemed impossible  to get hold of the disabled steamer.  It was arranged that the 'Miowera  should stand by and do all in her power  to save passengers when the. Strathnevis went ushoie which seemed "to be  her inevitable fate. During the night  the gale increased und the snow squalls  were so thick,, that the Miowera's.  electric lights were at times obscured.  In the morning, to the consternation'  of   those    on    the    Strathnevis   the  Miowera was no.'wheie to. be seen and ���������  certain death seemed to await them on  the-cruel-rocks-towar.d w.hich__th_y_.  were slowly but surely drifting. But  just as all hope seemed gone, the wind  shifted and they were just able to  work *the vessel in and safely anchor  her behind Destruction Nlnnd. The  next day the steam collier ' Mineola  hove in sight and taking the Strathnevis in tow brought her safely to  Port Townsend.  DISSOLUTION OF THE MANITOBA  I-AIU'IAMENT.  Premier Greeuway's Christinas box to  tho people of Manitoba is n general  election and, while it caused general  surprise, it did not give universal satisfaction to the people of the prairie  province. This is especially tlie case wiih  the adherents of the Conservative opposition who aro ill prepared for au appeal  to the country, The nominations will be  held on January 8 and the voting takes  place on the 15th. The writs are returnable on the 2'5rd and'the-legislature is  called to assemble for the despntch of  business *cu the 2-th. This is . pretty  quick work, bnt the busiuess interests";  which are more .or =��������� less disturbed by ��������� a  general election, will be thankful that  the inevitable excitement will be of so  short duration. Tlie people will be again  asked to pronounce upon, the school  question, and iu his address to the  electors Premier Greeuway gives the key  note of the campaign. lie1 says: "The  menacing attitude assumed by the  Dominion government with reference to  the educational legislation of the province lias made it necessary to take the  question thus forced upon theni."  THE 0UNARDER 0EPHAL0NIA  WRECKED.  THE NEW MINISTER.  We,heartily congratulate Col. K. G.  Prior, M.P., on his appointment to the  position of Controller of Inland  Revenue. At last British Columbia's  position in the Dominion is hegining  to be realized and she has got a chance  of being heard in the councils of  Canada. Col. Prior is not the man to  neglect the interests of the Province,  and we look for a good deal more  attention from Ottawa than we have  ever yet received.

Yearly it grow finer  and bigger. Tony was coming now upon  his domain. For its last two miles the  mill road lay through it. Either hand  fields in full heart and tilth stretched so  far the trees rimming them in wore a  veil of soft huze.

Further yet yearling mules trooped  after tho big boll mare or stuck heads  across a fence to bray stentorously to  their follows broken to harness and  stopping delicately as they "sided"  young corn, now midlcg high.  Wheat was forwarder still, well in  tho boot, and of the richest golden green  that tho south wind ruffled in long satiny ripples. Beside it loamy breadths  lay warm and brown, checkered with  tiny hill, ready for tobacco sotting.  Mammy's eyes grew covetous, though  sho tried to mako thcin scornful.

Ordered by, the Dominion  government to bring in "remedial  measures" to relieve the Catholic portion of her community from the wrongs  of which they complain, the-Provincial  Premier has declared his refusal to do  '���������'( 1 so and apparently confident of being  backed by the constituencies has dissolved parliament, and gone to the  country. The real question to he  decided now is" not whether there are.  or are not, to be separate schools in  Manitoba, but whether Manitoba can  do what she likes in the matter, or has  to obey the dictates of that Dominion  of which she is a federated province.  In the face of the greater question of  Imperial Federation 1 his comparatively  little question gains increased interest.  CORRESPONDENCE.  It has come to our knowledge that  there is a general impression abroad  that we refuse to publish letters from  Correspondents unless signed with  their names. There was a time we  believe under the original management  of Tiik Miner when this was the case  nnd their is no doubt that it was, and is,  a most excellent rule. The only objection to it is that it almost entirely  chokes off correspondence. It has  therefore been abandoned by British  journals throughout the . world,  except, we' understand, by' our  contemporary here. We have no  desire to thus shine before the  world as one of the two while lilies  of a blameless press. The common  ordinary rules of respectable journals  like the London Times,are good enough  for us, and-we particularly want our  readers to make as much use of our  columns as they like. For this purpose  the printed .rules at the head of our  editorial page were framed some two  years ago.- But' in order to make it  plainer and to dissipate the false  impression to which we have  alluded above we desire to state  that any correspondence sent in  for publication may be signed  by a motto or pen-name, but must be  accompanied by the real name and  address of the writer as a guarantee of  good faith. ���������' '  THE VENEZUELAN QUESTION.  ���������The-Message���������which���������Pkksidknt  Cleveland presented to Congress on  this subject is the most important  state paper that has been laid on Ihe  table since.the declaiation of civil war.  The tenour of the Message appeared  to be pleasing'tb the members' of Con ���������  gress, who at once passed ��������� a bill providing for the commission asked for.  and there the matter rests for the  present. Meanwhile a warlike wave  has rolled over the. press of the United  States, only a few of the more important journals standing like rocks and  boldly,,keeping-their heads above the  seething and surging mass of foolishness raging around .them. - A small  panic occurred on Wall Street, which  has had the effect of bringing the situation forcibly before'the business men  of the country. That situation shortly  s this. Trade'und commerce throughout the United States are in a terribly  depressed'-.condition. In spite of reassuring opinions given by Bradstreets  and. ex pressed by __ optimistic orators,  there is absolutely no, rise at present  from the slump of four years ago.  Congress has had to recognize this and  provide measures to secure the public  finances and to prevent the national  credit receivinga'severe shock., In the  face of these conditions, asks the common sense of the nation, is it worth  while still further paralyzing  trade and piling up a debt that  will.-have to _ be "measured by-  hundreds of. millions, for .the ' sake  of a piece of land for which they have  no use. The legacy left to the nation  by President Monroe will be an  expensive one if this is the course to  be followed. A succession of diplomatic  quarrels between the nations of Europe  and- the turbulent- little republics of  South America would bring even the  United States to the verge of ruin. If  the cause of Venezuela is to be blindly-  supported with oceans of .blood and  money by the United States, it.is only  to be expected th'at other South Anier-  can communities will, in any intercourse that they may have with  European" powers, assume an attitude  that can only be expressed by the word  "cheek."     The  great republic would  have its hands full of quarrels about  matters of no concern whatever to  itself and on the side of people who  have nothing in common with it.s own  inhabitants. Does any sane man for  one moment believe that there is anything whatever of true republican  nature in the despotic and corrupt  little governments that are notorious  all over the southern part of the continent. As a mat ter of fact Venezuela  would be better olf as a British Colony  than she ever can be under what she  is pleased to call a republic. Among  men'who have travelled then* is not  lhe slightest doubt that tbe inhabitants of the Colonial Empire of Great  Britain are the freest and happiest  people in Ihe world. In support of  this statement the remarks of the  venerable Mu. Justice Field, quoted  in our last issue, may bo taken as unbiased testimony. If further proof is  required let the reader inquire of any  of the many Americans who have acquired and hold mining property  around ns here in Kootenay itself.  These are weighty reasons against  war. Great communities do not allow  themselves to be carried off their feet  by the "jingo" impulse of a moment.  Who does not remember the great  wave of "jingoism" in England  which 'found its culmination in the  music hall refrain "We don't want to  tight, but by jingo if we do." So apt  wa-s the illustration that the word  "jingo" has grown into existence to  represent that particular popular feeling which finds expression in flag  waving, patriotic songs, the taking  down of rusty swords by ancient warriors, while the great clear-headed  bulk of the people look on at the  "children amusing themselves."  At the same time the situation is  grave. An election is pending, in the  United States, which is largely affected  by renegade ��������� sons of Great Britain  herself, who would sell their souls, if  they were not already mortgaged, to  humble the country of their forefathers.  more than what she has a right to.  The location of the boundary is probably perfectly well known to our  Foreign Oflice and though of couise no  recognition can be made by England  of llie American Commission yet it is  likely iliat no obstacle will be placed  in the way of its ascertaining this fact,  so chat its decision when Riven may be  hailed by the two greatest nations of  the world a.s a message of peace.  TIIE CONSEQUENCES OF WAR.  To us here in Kootenay the Venezuelan question is one of the- very  gravest concern. If we were a praying  community now would; be the-time to  invoke the offices of the Angel of  Peace.   ...  It is usual, on the outbreak of hostilities between two countries, for each  one to.'give any citizens of the other  within her borders a fortnight or so to  leave the country. . Any found remaining after the expiration of this  period are seized and become prisoners  of war. If public feeling runs high  their position is not an enviable one.  Modern civilization would probably  pause before the confiscation of property, but it would be held by its foreign  owners only on sufferance and they  would be mightily interested in the  result of the war and the details.of the  subsequent treaty of peace. Mining  property does not improve by being  neglected for a period nd noncompliance with the regulations is apt  to lead to loss. It would be almost too  much to expect that a special treaty  would be made for ns. but still Amei-  can interests in Canada are so large  that it is possible something of that  nature might be done. It would be to  the interest of both our American  -neigh bors-and-ourselves-that-thc-min-  ing industry of Kootenay together  with the export of 'ore to the smelters  of the United States should continue,  but many difficulties would arise and  itis to be feared that the industry  would receive so severe a blow t hat. our  long hoped for prosperity, of which  the dawn is just breaking, would be  indefinitely postponed. *  According to comparisons recently  printed in the press of the United  States the result of the declaration of  war would be disastrous to our cousins  across the boundary. They have  hardly any means' of offence or defence. Their navy is but a squadron  compared with ours, their army is not  one-firth of ours. Gen. Miles, the  Commander-in-Chief of the United  States, in a report to Congress, states  that the coasts are practically undefended, with the exception of three  guns, two at. New York and one at  San Francisco, and that it would take  two . years to put the defences  into anything like order. But if  war is declared, it - will' ail be over  and done with long before two years  have passed. The result therefore of  this first war can hardly fail to be in  favor of Great Britain. If the whole  matter 'would stop there it would be  well whichever side were . victorious.  But it is not to be expected that a. great  nation like the United States would lie  down tamely under defeat. She would  strain every nerve and make use of her  boundless resources to fit herself for a  second combat and the world would  witness the sad spectacle of these two  great nations, children of the same  parents, flying" at each others throats  destroying each others commerce and  playing havoc with each others  prosperity.  In spite of the fact that England is  alluded to by a large portion of .the  American  press as insatiably  greedy  of new territory and  ready to use a  '���������bludgeon"  to acquire this particular!  strip   in    Venezuela,    anyone   really'i  acquainted with our colonial policy.and j  Lord Salisbury's met hods of ��������� hand- i  ling foreign affairs,  will rest satisfied  that Great Britain is asking for nothing I  o-o TO  THE BON TON  hj-or: _ET_=iES___:  EASTERN OYSTEES  IN ANY STYLE.

(2.12) THE MINER, SATURDAY, NELSON, B. C, JANUARY 4, .1896.  ACETYLENE.  The newly discovered illuminant,  acetylene gas, seems, to judge from its  reception by what may be di*seribed as  . the old-line gas companies, to be in a  fait- way to make* money for the holders  of stock in the parent companies.  The anxiety of thi* coal and so-called  water-g-iscompanies tosecuretbe right  to iise acetylene, either as an enricher  or otherwise, is to judge fiom daily  paper and other reports, almost unequalled since the furore respecting the  Bell Telephone slim .->. To learn ol' the  claims made for acetylene is almost  enough to.stimulate incredulity, but t.o  witness an exhibition of the new illu-  miiiAiit in the presence of and in competition with ordinary illuminating  gas and the incandescent electiic light  goes far to make plain the intensity of  the desire of lhe old gas companies to  protect themselves by possessing the  right to use acetylene.  It is stated that a mineral precipitate  which resulted fiom an attempt lo  produce aluminium by electrolysis,  thrown aside as waste, was the accidental basis of the discovery of acetylene gas. Some one threw water on a  pile of refuse when chemical action was  observed, gas being given off, which,  being accidently ignaied, burned with  an intensely brilliant white light.  Subsequent experiment determined  that the mineral was of such proportions of carbon and calcium that when  coming in contact with water deposited  its calcium and gave oil a gas extraordinarily rich in carbon, one which  when ignited coincided on the solar  spectrum with sunlight. From this it  has been called aititical sunlight. One  flame of acetylene gas about the size of  *a twenty-five cent piece, burning three-  quaiters of a foot an hour,* paled a jet  of New York Consolidated Gas Company gas burning 5. feet an hour so  that the latter looked blue and dull  red; on turning the acetylene light out  the room by coutrast appeared almost  dark.  A unique feature of the plan for  utilizing the new light is found in the  scheme to distribute it liquified iu  cylinders, as carbonic gas is furnished  to soda water fountains, one. perhaps  four feet high and eight inches- in  diameter, it is said, containing enough  to supply "an ordinary-sized house for  two months." It is evident that small  and widely distributed jets of acetylene  gas will have tr> be employed for household illumination, and these will have  to be protected with opaque shades.  In one test recently three jets, each  using three-quarters of a foot of acetylene gas an hour, rendered dull and red  two twenty-five-candle power and one  one-hundred-candle   power   incandes-  . cent electric and two 5J foot an hour  ordinary gas lights displayed in competition in a room about fifteen feet  square.���������Bradst reets.  SMBI/TING  BY'MATTE PROCESS.  --mmm.  The extraction of tannin from palmetto leaves has now become a practical industry, and it is claimed that leather  tanned with this product cau be moro  economically produced than that which  is treated with oak or hemlock bark,  while the residue forms a valuable paper stock, which is also utilized. In tho  process of extraction the leaves and  stems are separated, the stems are  .crushed flat through rollers, while the  leaves are finely .shredded. This material  is theu planed in a largo wooden, tank  and covered with water, the muss is  brought to tho boiling point, but doc allowed to boil violently, being kept neur  but below tho boiling point for 48  hours, the liquid being then ready for  tho tannery. After the tauuin has beeu  extracted tho palmetto is steamed in.a  chemical solution, which removes the  silicate contained in tho palmetto and  changes the glossy shield to a gummy  mass, which can be removed without  injury to the fiber, but. iu making imitation horsehair this gummy mass is allowed to dry, as it adds to the elasticity  of the fiber. There are several combiua  tions in which tho production of tauuin  aud fiber is said to be practicable aud  advantageous, so that tanneries situated  in the vicinity of paper mills can grind  tho palmetto iu tlie same miumor as  bark, and tho residue, after bleaching,  is iu proper shape for the paper mill.���������  New -Toi'*7" ���������****._���������_.  A Ten Inch Vermiform Appendix.  The vermiform appendix, or cul de  sac, the death trap attached to the large  intestines iu the human aud allied species, and which of late has received  much attention, has beeu believed by  some to be an organ just developing. It  has even been argued that the babies of  three or four centuries hence will all  have to be operated on for the purpose  of removing that useless appendage. Recent developments, however, iu dissecting a gorilla, proved that the animal's  appendix veraiiformis was 10 inches in  length, whereas iu the human beiug it  seldom exceeds 8 inches. From this  it is argued that the appendix is really  breeding out, aud that the future man,  instead of having that organ developed  to the size of a ten pound sugar sack,  will really have none at all.���������St. Louis  Republic.

Under the head of "Matte Smelting"  the Engineering and Miuing Journal  ���������ays: "This branch of metallurgy has  received more attention iu tLe past few  years than perhaps any other, and naturally so, as it had been more or less  neglected. Direct matting for the collection of the precious metals had not  been carried out to auy very great extent  and indirect matting in connection with  lead smelting was simply looked upon  ns a nuisance to be got rid of in the  shortest and simplest manner, frequently  being bandied very crudely and iu many  oases much of the matte being actually  left on the dump.  The greater or less success^of pyritic  ���������melting, as carried out by several of our  metallurgists at various establishments,  has caused a considerable addition to the  literature of the subject recently. In the  last edition of Dr. Peter's work there is  some very valuable information, furnished by specialists on the subject, and we  now have another original work which  may be said to be ou. new lines entirely.  Matting heretofore has been written of in  connectiou /with copper smelting n_d  Bilver-lead smelting. Herbert Lang now  places before us the really first attempt  at systematic treatment of tbe subject,  and sets forth fairly the virtual unity of  matting methods; the recognition of aud  relation to tbe various branches, viz.,  reverberatory, pyritic and the German  system of matting.  The progress made recently in this  direction has been going ou steadily.  Many of our most pructical metallurgists  have applied themselves to the subject. [  !" and mining propositions are now being  considered ev.*ry day from this point ot  view, which would have been perfectly  impracticable and out of the field of possibility under auy other conditions.  It is not too much to say that_ the  development of this class o[ smelting is  of such benefit to the mining industry  that every encourugemeut ought to lie  given to it by miners themselves, nnd  that any enterprising mnn who establishes  a matte smelter iu a district, in which  the miners will agree to Rupply 'sufficient  quantities of suitable ore is as great a  benefactor to the country as the army of  hardy pioneers who have cultivated the  entire western country and who have  turned the comparatively barren prairie  into fertile corn fields".  .iTuuoleH on a Tenement Street.  improvidence works sad havoc witf'  the family -xchequer, and the havon  cruelly enough, is as great whon caused  by" inculpable ignorance as by wanton  ' extravagance.
