THE   TRANSVAAL. CRISIS.  Ilrilish Agent lo   Report.     Hammond  Cries  Kor  Help.  Londou: In view ol' the alarming stories  the Secretary of State lor the Colonies,  Kt. Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, has  ordered the British agent at Pretoria,  the capital, to go to Johannesburg and  "reporfthe'true"situcTtiou^bf"affairs to~the~  colonial ollice. According to the latest  advices everything is unsettled at that  point and there are no signs of the  resumption of busiuess. It is rumored  the government is contemplating another  coup involving additional arrest of  prominent men in Johannesburg.  New York: The Journal ' prints a  dispatch from John Hayes Hammond,  the American engineer who is imprisoned in tlie Transvaal, which concludes:  ���������'Detention of all prisoners unjustifiable  confiscation of property- a monstrous  oppression; ask our goverumentto urge  on the Transvaal government that the  demands ol! the reform committee were  leasonable and. based ou the primary  principles oC the republic. , Protest  agaiust the treatment of till Americans  in particular. If the Transvaal govern  meat persists in its present course our  government can only evoke the aid of  Grteat Britain as the parnmout South  African power to coerce the Transvaal,  This of course the Transvaal would fear.  Urge our government to act immediately  and enlist sympathy in our favor.?'  MINING* NOTES. '  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  NAKUSP.  Mr. Pellew-Harvey has submitted - a  proposition to the city council of Vancouver to start a smelter there. The  council will consider it during this week.  A bond has been arranged with parties  in England giving them 6 months in  which to prospect the Swan Lake claim  near Vernon and then to have the option  or taking it.up at. 8200,000.  Mr. ."I. A. Mara M. P. introduced  Messrs. Young and Morgan to Mr. Wood  Controller of Customs.-. These gentlemen  are respectively president and manager  of the Pittsburg Mining Co. which is  operating at Lytton and Quesnelle. The  company is about to import a new class  of mining machinery to enable them to  dredge the river in rapid water, and is  anxious to secure permission to import  dutyfiee.   * _  Two new miuing companies have been  incorporated, both with their headofliees  at Vancouver. The one, the Nip and  Tuck Gold Mining Co., is formed with a  capital stock of ������15,000, to develop the  Nip and Tuck claim on Wild Horse creek,  Kootenay,1 and as its first trustees A_  McCreery, J. M. Buxton aud "W. H.  Carnsnew. The other is known as the  Golden . Gate Miuing Co., of Granite  Creek, and*is capitalized at 860,000.  Henry D. Peccier, D. G. Macdonell aud  M. P. Thomson are the trustees.  ��������� IFrom our own Correspondent.]  Beautiful weather, no.ice and snow  going down.  Wm. Bragg has sold out his cartage  business to A. L. Move, who is now  looking after the wants of the town.  Mr. D. McKay, condu.tbr on the N.  & S'-Ry. has built a comfortable house  on Lake Avenue, he is now, moving  in.  Captain and Mrs. Moore of the con-i  eentrator, Three Forks, were passengers on Saturdays boat, en route to the  coast. ;*'  Mrs. C. W. Vanderburg, widow "of  the late Captain Vanderburg of the  str. Arrow has moved into town from  her house across the lake. ���������   ���������  Mr. Tilly late wharfinger ab this  point, has been transferred to Sandon  to take charge there in the place of  P. T. Hamilton.  The town has a business like appearance when the boat comes in,  especially on her way up the lake, as  it takes all available hands to assist in  loading the ore, which is' coining in  rapidly from the Slocan.  Mr. James Kelly leaves by next boat  for the Needles to put up a house on  his pre-emption so as to be ready for  the rush in the spring, which he  confidently anticipates. Mr. Kelly is  alive to the possibilities of this new  camp and is getting in cm the ground  floor.  The s.s. Nakusp has been particularly  busy since the Arrow lake branch has  reached the lake. On Saturday, 1st.  she took up 240 tons of ore returning  on Sunday morning with 90 tons of  hay, oats, flour, and machinery. Sh*  left again before noon with 120 tons of  ore for Arrowhead. There are still  several car loads ou the dock waiting  to be taken up.  ROSSLAND.  AV. S. Jones will open an office as  customs broker.  Tramway affairs appear to he "quiet,  aud work is progressing.  The Cliff mine has purchased an air  drill from the Band Drill Co.  The Crown Point is working 20 meu  aud has nearly 1000 tons ready for  shipment.  The Homestake, which was recently  bonded by Arancouver capitalists has  commenced shipping.  The output ol! the Le Roi has now  reached 125 tons a day. It has been  over 100 ever since thc first of the year.  '������������������''Nothing definite- will be doue- r������bou.  tbe War Eagle Smelter until something  is decided about the routes of the various  raihvay schemes.  A petition is beiug prepared by Mr.  Boultbee for the incorporation of the  town in accordance, with tbe resolutions  passed at the meetings last week.  The ore now beiug shipped from the  Iron Mask contains, gold 2.5 ounces,  silver 4.5 ounces aud copper 9 per cent.  The O.K. ore has gold 3.8 ouuees, silver  15.2 ounces.  On the Centre Star crosscuts are being  pushed ahead from the main tunnel.  They have already developed a width of  70 teet iu the ore body. Reduction  works for this company will probably  be built.  The O. K. mine will put in a 10 stamp  mill in the spring. After many vicissi-  tudes~the~niain���������tunnel~is now-iu-seven*  feet of ore which gives every indication  of beiug a true contact vein.  Mr. Kirk, P. L. S., is preparing anew  map ot Rossland and the surrounding  claims. He has discovered, according to  the Rosslaud Miner, that P. J. Ritchie's  original survey of the townsite is considerably out. It is uot laid out on true  north and south lines as the law directs. '  Every week seems to increase the  value" of the Le Roi. At thc 350 foot  level they are in 15 feet of clean ore and  have not yet found the walls. -A new  double compartment shaft has been  commenced just to the eastofthe preseut  workings. When this is finished the  output mny reach 400 tous a day.  The following oflicers and board of  trustees of the Iron Mask Miniug Co.  have been elected in Spokane. President  John A. Finch. Vice-President, Patrick  Clark. Treasurer, Austin Corbin. F. E.  Lucas, Secretary. The board ot trustees  consists of these aud the following; A. 13.  Campbell, . A. M. Holter, and Peter  Larsen. This company together with  the Virginia aud Poorman is controlled  by the War Eaglo Co.  ���������, -IIDWAV.  ... Mr.' S. S. Fowler in the Advance,  combats Mr. Pellew Harvey's statement-that the ores of Fairview,  Boundary, Osoysoos and Vale are not  adapted to the smelting process, but  rather to amalgamation, chlorination  andcyaniding.  The Monarch has-been bonded to  the Montreal syndicate which is  represented by Mr. F. C. Innes of  Vancouver. The terms of the bond  are $1250 down and three equal instalments of ������3750 each on' -August 1,  November I, 1S96 aud January 1. 1897.  The Monarch was located in 1S93, lt  lies parallel to the Gold "Drop which is  already under bond tothe same syndicate. The Gold Drop is a .outh east  extension of the celebrated Snow-shoe  claim.  THE ALBERNI GOLD FIELD.  AiiBebki, B.C. Jan. 23.  To The Kditor of Tub Mi.nkk.  Having in the two previous letters  covered in a hasty manner the various  quartz interests in this section, we will  now glance at the placer and hydraulic ground. In point of age the  latter rank first by a number of years.  China Creek takes its name from the  fact that as far back as the sixties a  number of Chinamen were making a  living by sluicing and rocking the rim  gravel along the banks of the stream.  The few white men in the country at  that time took only a languid interest  in the matter and after a few feeble  attempts abandoned the creek.  . A few .years ago this ground was  again prospected, and its true value  ascertained, and the creek staked for  hydraulic purposes from end to end.  At first the relocators of this' abandoned ground received very little encouragement. Chinamen are all very  reticent about their gains, and no one  knew more than that, they had worked  the creek for a long- time and then  abandoned it. Gradually, howevet, as  the work of the new owners progressed  the evidences of value grew stronger  tmd more numerous. Companies were  formed and the greater part of last  year was spent in development work  on a large scale. None of the claims  are yet prepared to turn on *a head,  but at least two of them will do so in  ���������the spring.  The leading hydraulic leases are the  Cataract, Duke of York and Constance.  On the Cataract, lease a big dam has  been put in and the bed cleared for a  big.flume over a mile long. A sawmill  is in place on the claim and the construction of the flume will begin as  soon as the material is out. The ditch  will give a splendid head of water. A  penstock pipe and giant are ready on  the ground and this will probably be  the first company to move dirt.  The Duke of York lease lies just to  the northeast of the Cataract. The  company has had a gang of men at  work all summer and up to the end of  the year. The J work is practically  closed down now but will be resumed  in the spring.  Still further up the creek is the Constance lease. Several shafts have been  sunk to bed rock and considerable  other prospecting work done by the  company. These claims are in the  hands of men able to work them to a  finish. The past season's work has  shown them to be of far greater value  than was expected when operations  began. From bench to bedrock the  colors are found in every pan washed.  The gold is there and the problem of  how to get it will b������ solved in the next  six months.  Almost every stream.in this district  responds with colors to the pan test;  ��������� Down the canal, at Granite .creek, an  "at ternpt at'plaeer" work" was "made and  abandoned ou account of the mass of  boulders that line the creek from bank  to bed rock. A cheap and effective  means of handling these would, make  the ground very valuable.  Judging from present indications,  and the vast amount of ground yet  unprospected, the future of placer  mining in this section is assured. The  only point to be considered is the fact  that somewhat more than the ordinary  amount of capital will be required to  woi'k the ground*  Chek Chako.  .PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.  DIVORCE IN B. C.  f-ome doubt has arisen as to whether  the Supreme Court of British Columbia  has the right t.o hear divorce cases or  not. The Chief Justice has brought the  matter to a head by refusing tD hear  motions in cases until it is r.eltled. The  following day however-Mr. Justice Drake  had no such scruples. 0He heard and j  settled the point  In answer to a question on January 31  as to what was going to be done to fill  the vacancy on the Supreme Court bench  caused by the retirement oJSir Hemy  Crease, and whether the new judge  when-appointed���������shall-be - required-to  reside in Vancouver, Mr. Eberts said  that Sir Henry's retirement only took  place ou the 20th.. and nothing had been  done yet.  Dr. RogerR presented petitions' for  a private bill for a railway to Cariboo.  In answer to questions it was stated  that $7,500 has been handed to Chief  Justice Davie on account of the Statutes  Revisions and he has made all necessary  disbursements out of this sum. The  total cost, of the revision is expected to  be $25,000.  The defalcations of the two Registrars  of the Supreme Court were; Falding  $1,416.27 aud Prevost $22,596.14. The  government was covered iu the latter  case by a policy in the guarantee company of North America for $1,500.  Mr. Kellie is asking: 1. How many  owners of mineral claims have paid into  the provincial treasury $100 in lieu of  performing the annual amount of assessment work required by the mineral act.  2. AA'hat amount has AVest Kootenay  contributed in lieu of assessment work.  AVhat is the total amount derived from  the above sources.  Hon. Col. Baker answered to' question  1, 5; to question 2, 8300; to question 3,  8500.  Mr. Kellie's bill respecting wages gives  employes a preferred claim for three  months' pay in case, of assignment,  liquidation or seizure, the act to be.  applicable whether " the [wages of the  persons employed be payable by the day,  week, job, piece or otherwise.

Andy Dolan is cutting ice ou the lower  bay.   He hopes to get about 600 tons.  A social entertainment took place last  night at the Presbyterian church. It  was very well attended and everyone  enjoyed themselves.     ><  A Provincial Mining Association has  been formed at Vancouver. The first  meeting is to be held here at Nelson on  April 7.  Five hundred tons of lime rock  have been shipped from the Blue Bell  to Pilot Bay and Nelson during the  month of January.  A. M. Johnston has. successfully passed  his final examination as a bhrristei anil  solicitor. On his return to Nelson he  will probably open un office and go into  business on his own account.  A few men are beginning to make  their way towards Slocan City, going  up the river trail. This may possibly  be the earliest spring sign of the rush  that is to come next summer.  The Mining and Scientific Journal of  San Francisco of February 1, contains a  long account and five views of the Hall  Mines AVire tramway. The views are  exceedingly well executed from photographs taken "by Neelands Bros, of  Nelson.  The time for mceiving suggestions  in The Miner Competition on the  amendment ofthe mining laws will  positively close on Saturday next loth.  Some have already been received and  we hope that our readers will show  their interest in the matter by sending  in a large number.  The three mile skating race for a purse  of 825 and the championship of British  Columbia came off at the skating rink  on Thursday evening. The hard frosts  of the preceeding nights had put the ice  into good oondition and considerable  interest was manifested in the race.  The competitors were H. Donough and  Sandy Mills. The former won easily.  The time was not a record.  There is a lumber famine in Nelson  at. present.. The place is growing and  would grow still faster if the people  could only get houses to live in. One  builder informs us that he is now  figuring on four dwelling houses but  does not know where to get the lumber. The smelter people also are  supposed to want a la-ge quantity. It  is not likely that this kind of want will  go begging for long, and we already  hear rumors of an enterprising firm  getting ready to till the requirements  of the place.  The Birthday party held in the Metho  dist church on AVednesday, evening  attained n-sucoess that was most gratifying to all concerned. The attendance  was good, the programme rather Hhort  but of excellent quality throughout, the  refreshments choice and the proceeds  (applied to liquidating balance due on  bell) $50. Of the items ou the programme  the male quartettes by Messrs. Hull,  Smith, J. E. Turner and AV. B. Shaw, the  solo by Miss Sansom and the recitation  by Miss Eva MacKay are worthy of  special mention.  AVe have received the first copy of  "Mining" a new journal published in  Spokane as the journal of the North wesi  Miniug Association.

C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY.8:1896  ���������_������������������  \  3-  1 , CHAPTER I.  DR. QLADE'S TBEATMKNT.  "Was that Miss Glade I saw driving  away as I came in?" asked Maj. Passmore,  removing his glasses.  "It was Dr. Glade." replied his sister.  "Doctor; fudge! The idea of calling a  young woman fresh from college a doctor."   ���������  Maj. Passmore was a tall, gray-haired  skeptic of sixty; his sister, Ruth, a shrinking little spinster of fifty.  "Well, what (lid she say? Is Connie any  better?" asked flie major, testily.  "Dr. Glade said she was making satisfactory progress "  ."Progress: Hum! It's my belief she's  getting weaker every day."  '.'Now, Roger, you know better."  ' "Now, Ruth, you will'pardon my blunt-  ness, but your simple'faith in this Miss  Glade is extremely childish."    ���������  ���������   ���������  "Dr. Glade lias done her good," said  Aunt Ruth-, assertively.  - "Not a bit. We have been at Hastings  now a mouth;' her ' cough has grown  worse, her cheeks paler, she's more languid and indifferent' aud her appetite is  entirely gone."  "It's taken time to comprehend her  case." ,  "Rubbish! Dr. Lance wood understood  her cwie, a'nd it's my opinion you made: a  grave mistake .when you left home and  took the case out of his hands."  "Dr. Lancewood did nothing to benefit  her; and, besides, he recommended Hastings."  "But not a female practitioner; who,  I'm convinced, is letting her drift into consumption. So I've sent for'Dr. Lance*  wood to come down."  "What will Dr. Glade think?"  "I don't care whut Miss Glade thinks.  Connie's life is in danger, and I sha'n't  put up.with this feminine nonsense'any'  .longer.' I wrote to him yesterday, and  asked him to wire when he could coiu'e  down."  '."Well, all I can say is, it's an insult to  Dr.. Glade. And if I were in her place, I  should throw up the "case,", said Miss Ruth  Passmore, indignantly, as she left the  room.  *' -Maj. Roger and Miss Ruth Passmore, of  Passmore, Grange, ..Hampshire, - were the  . guardians of their, niece, Miss . Constance  Passmore, who had been ailing since the  Christmas festivities.' ���������- Dr. Lnncuwood,  ' their local practitioner, had lieen unable  to discover anything seriously the matter  . with the young lady, so that when Aunt  Ruth suggested the month of March at  Hastings; he readily admitted it might do  her good. Constance Passmore was an  heiress; a romantic, fragile' blonde of  twenty, being somewhat delicate, she hud  been a petted ' child; and nothing thnt  wealth and devotion could procure had  been denied her as u girl. " ��������� ;���������  'When Dr. Helen Glade took her  case in  -handy-she _wasj.gr_n.iy_ perplexed- how_to-  pi-scrib. for tlie symptoms. Hut gradually  she began to sec'that.-it was an ailment  seldom  met  with   |ft  hospital  practice,  "On Christmas night, after having been  nil day very merry, facetious, and devoted, you found yourselves alone in the���������the  conservatory?"  "No, it was the library."  ' "Ah, the library.    "Yes, well?"  "I had been reading 'The Newcomes,'  and I asked him if he had ever read it.  "Wasn't it odd?"  "It was. So he asked you how you  liked Ethel Newcome?"  "Yes he did. How strangely you hit  upon things."  "And he compared you to Ethel (only  you were much prettier), antl said: "If  you could only love him as Ethel did  Clive, ho would be the happiest fellow in  the world.' "  "Why, Dr. Glade, how could you know  that?"  "Mere conjecture, my dear. But that  dear old 'Newcomes' is responsible for  many an ill-starred romance in real life.  And so you said you could, and you were  engaged."  "No."   Connie shook her head sadly.  "Then, what happened���������a quarrel?"  "Oh, no. AVhen AValter spoke to Uncle  Roger, he was in a great rage, and���������and  said he should never consent to it. Walter left the next day���������and"���������with a sob���������  "we have never seen each otlier since. And  uncle won't let me mention his name."  Dr. Glade regarded her a moment reflectively, and then said:  "AVhat is your cousin ?"  "A medical student at King's college,  London."  "His name is Walter���������er��������� ?"  "AValter Plyne. His mother was poor  mamma's sister. Mamma's relations are  all poor."  "Thank you, my dear, for your confidence. 1 cau now prescribe lor you, I  hope, with more success."  'ih- next day when she called, Dr.  Glade said to Aunt Ruth: "I should like  Miss Connie.to.drive with me this afternoon. I find she wants rousing, and her  mind diverting from the subject which I  believe you know is depressing her.".  "Yes, I know what you mean," said  Aunt Ruth; "I wish <-Ue could forget it."  "lam comparative.y at leisure from two  until four in the afternoon, and I shall he  glad of her company then:"  That afternoon Dr. Glade and her charming patient drove along the sea front1 in  her victoria. .For some time the girl did  not spontaneously respond to her companion's cheerful' conversation; but as they  were turning they met old Dr. AVrench  driving with his new assistant. As they  passedboth gentlemen raised their hats.  Connie eagerly grasped Dr. Glade's  hand, and asked: "AVho was that gentleman?"-  "Old Dr. Wrench and his assistant."  . "But  the  other ��������� it   is  AValter!" her  cheeks suddenly aglow with warm pink  tints. ��������� 1  . "Your Cousin AValter?"  "Yes.   Do you think he noticed nie?"  "Oh, he must have done so, for he didn't  notice me." >  "He looked pale, diln't he?"  "1 don't think so," said Dr. Glade, reflectively. ... '  "And his moustache has grown longer."  "Has he got one?   I didn't notice it."  "What a pity, for I should have been  awfully glad to hear of your success."  AValter reflected a moment (he knew  Uncle Roger had destroyed it) and then  remarked, as' if to change the subject:  "You have been ill, Connie?"  "Who told you?"  He smiled faintly as he replied: "My  medical training must have been remiss,  if I could not discover that without a  stethoscope."  "Do I look���������er���������so faded, Walter?"   ;'  "Oh no, not exactly faded; but something - like a budding rose deprived of the  "WHY, DK.

Passmore had '.  - keen traducing her,   Dr. Glade had diag-'  nosed Connie's complaint and settled upon ���������  a decisive remedy. ,_    --        '  ��������� Dr. Helen Glade was a graceful, self-  reliant, pale-featured woman of twenty-  six, with dark, glossy hair brushed as  smoothly over.her brow as its rippling tendency would permit. She said to Connie,  on calling that morning:  "I think, iny dear,- I: fully comprehend  . your care now. tittle by little I have'  learned where you got the germs of the ���������  fever which is prostrating you."  "Where did I-get it?" asked the invalid,  languidly reclining on a couch.  "While decorating the   Christmas   t_.ee,  from your cousin."  -  "Oh, Dr. Gladel" rising on her elbow,  her transparent cheeks aflame.  "Pardon me, my dear, bnt a   physician  to he of any use to the patient must hare  .  her full confidence.    Did you not feel the  first symptoms then?"  "Yes, but more tke night after," shyly.

"Certainly, or Dr. AVrench - would not  have engaged him."  "Oh, I'm so glad 1 For poor Walter has  had such a struggle���������it is so expensive-^,  nnd the examinations so difficult."  For-'the'-remainder-of_the"drive"Miss~  Connie's  animation  was in marked contrast with her lassitude earlier in the day.  The following afternoon, when Dr. Glade  culled, Aunt Ruth timorously said:  "Will you come into the library, Dr.  Glade? My brother wished to speak with  you about Connie." I  "Yes," said Uncle Roger,- when they  were ���������all three closeted together. "I���������I  wished to ask, Miss Glade, if you would  object to a -consultation regarding Connie's case, with our family physician?"  "Certainly not," replied Dr. Glade,  "but I really don't think it necessary."  "Possibly not," broke in Uncle Roger,  brusquely, "but for my own satisfaction, I  shoul<rprefer it."  "Oh, then by all means, let us have the  consultation���������for your own satisfaction"  replied'Dr. Glade,'with the faintest tone  of irony in this.last three words.  While driving that afternoon, Dr. Glade  callud at, thc hospital, and asked Connie to  go with her to thc children'sward, as there  were no infectious casus, and it mi^ht, interest her.

AVhen Dr. Glade presently joined them,  they were conversing without the slightest embarrassment. That afternoon, as  they were returning from their drive, the  doctor said to her patient:  "Well, my dear, how do you like my  new treatment?"  "Oh, Dr. Glade, did you know that Walter was here?"  "Possibly I did; what then?"  "Then you are a perfect dear of a physician. I.could hug you for it!" exclaimed  Connie rapturously. I  ' 'Not here in the carriage, ��������� dear. I know-  how you feel; for, as a Yankee friend of  mine would say: , 'I've been thar' myself!'  Au revoir un til to-morrow."  CHAPTER H.  THE DOCTOBS DISAGREE, AND THEN���������  When Dr. Lancewood assented to a consultation with Dr. Glade, he little knew  what a trial was in store for him.  Some years before he was a man of  thirty; a clever,. easy-going, prosperous  London medical coach; he fell desperately  in love with one of his pupils, a charming,  ambitious girlabout twenty. But through  her jealousy of another young lady pupil  they quarreled, and she had refused him.  Afterwards Dr. Lane .wood bought a good  practice in Hampshire, where he had .settled, and often felt the need of a helpmate,  ,1'or bachelor doctors are not favored by  prudish old maids cr anxious mammas  with growing daughters.  Aunt Ruth led Dr. Helen Glade to thc  library when she called the next day, and  introduced her to Dr. Lancewood. Instantly there was a mutual recognition  between the ex-coach and his former pupil,  but neither of them orally acknowledged  the fact, until Aunt Ruth closed the door  and left them, when Er. Lancewood asked,  with ill-concealed amusement:  "Did I understand Miss Passmore to say  Dr. Glade?'?  "You did, Dr. Lancewood," replied  Helen, with chilling politeness.  "Really, 1���������I am-sv .prised, Helen���������Miss  Glade���������that is, Dr. Glade."  "Why are you surprised?"  "I did not expect t" is���������I���������" He continued to look at her with an incredulous  smile, mingled with admiration for her  beauty, her self-pi isscssion and her professional style, which she assumed with elegance, it seemed to him.  0 ��������� "Did you not understand you were to  consult with a lady?" <������������������  "Yes, yes; hut I expected an older one  than you arey Helen.!' Then .was a tenderness in the'way he pronounced her name  that touched her, but she smothered it,aud  frigidly broke in wfth:  "Pardon me, I must ask you not to use  my Christian name."

"As you please," he said with resignation. ,  "AVill you examine the patient?"  "I have already done so, last night."

THE SMELTING BONUS,  Tho marvellous liberality of the  Dominion Government in giving a  bonus for the amount of ore smelted  in rhe .country does not, work quite  fairly. Comparatively rich ore that  goes straight to the' furnace earns itt-  50 cents a ton. Bub poorer ore has  first to-be concentrated. The Bine  Bell ore for instance is concentrated  iri the ratio of 5 to 1 before it goes to  the roasters even. The 50 cents i<-  concentrated too. It. is only paid on  ore smelted, not on ore mined, so tin  Kootenay Mining & Smelting Co. only  gets ten cents a ton bonus on its ore.  Is not this something like one law for  the rich (ore) and another for tho pool'?  WANTED���������A BUILDING.  Recent entertainments that have  taken place in Nelson show that then-  are plenty ot good companies willing  to come to us if we had a building  suitable for them. Private and local  affairs are also begining to complain  of lack of accommodation. Thc Fire  Hall which is the- largest building in  the town has not ' seating capacity  enough for Nelson its she is today; and  the building is inconvenient and  unsuitable in other ways. Still it is  all that we have, and for a comparatively small expenditure could bo put  in something more like condition than  it is at present. " Wc are informed  that the sum of $250 would fix it up  well enough. This amount could  easily be raised by one or two entertainments. The public, would come  forward liberally provided the aifairs  ���������were managed by some one who would  use the money for the purpose for  which it was given and not lavish it as  if it was his own on a company ol  strolling players. The public is getting  a little tired of paying people who  never think of rendering an account of  their stewardship.  ORE SHIPMENTS.  The changed condition of affair, in  Kootenay necessitates a change in the  Driuted returns of ore shipped. ' We  believe that the prime object to be  obtained is to show* the world the  'amount of work that is actually being  done in the district. Sometime ag.< n  prominent man said ."We do not want  to know about your prospect**, w(  want to find out whut you have  actually done." A year ago I he h*-t or  ore shipped from the different mines  sufficed for this. Today it, is not  enough. With two smelters at work  and another one inst completed tho  matter becomes "more complicated.  We" have therefore determined t.o  arrange our list so as to show the  amount of ore espoited as well as the  amount treated in the country.��������� The  tables will also give the amount of  matte or bullion resulting from the  latt er. -  Until just lately shipments of or_  were confined tothe winter months,  and a return therefore intended to  show the product of a season had to  ignore the natural division of the year  and extend from summer to summer.  Prom now on ore is likely to be moving continuously so we have changed  our date to coincide with the calendar  and the season will commence with  the first of January.  The total shipments for last year  including the ore mined at the Blue.  Bell and treated at Pilot Bay amounted  to no less a quantity than 7S.O0O tons.  number the natives by many t housands.  Millions oi! foreign capital is invested  in the country, which'is also almost  entirely supported by the taxes paid-  by these foreign settlers. Clearly the  latter are entitled at least to proper  protection in their property. They  have simply made the. country., In  their present demands there.isnothing  unreasonable. At the same time  neither Ureal Britain nor the United  States quite see thoir way to dictating  the course to be pursued by the  Transvaal Government.  '  Diplomacy has as usual found ont a  way to solve the difficulty. . From.  Simons Bay all the way round to  Zanzibar, a matter of some 2,000 miles,  there is only one decent harbor. This  is Delagoa Bay at present in the hands  of the Portuguese. It is the key to  the whole interior, particularly tp the  Liunsvaal. The Portuguese do not  want it. Its possession is liable .to  bring them into undesired complications with other powers. They are  (���������radically bankrupt and fifty or sixty  iiillions of dollars would be of much  ���������JTi eater service to them than this little  posses--, ii in in "South East Africa.  Accordingly a few Englishmen are  ,'iiiting their hands into their pockets  .iinl the purchase will probably be  -hortly completed. Then we shall  uold the gates of the Transvaal and  under our shelter not only our own  sons but our American cousins and  everyone else can safely employ  themselves _ in the great African  Golconda.  MAKING FRIENDS.  There is little doubt that Mb. Joseph  \Jn.-Mi-EitL.ux is eminently the man  ���������if, the day. He has recently made a  great speech at Manchester which  loems with the noblest patriotism and  lhe finest possible sentiments of  international friendship. He commences by deprecating any war whatever, ��������� but especially war with the  United States. Me said: "I feel, so far  as I can speak for my countrymen,  that our pride in the race to which we  belong is a pride which includes every  English-speaking community in the  world. (Hear, hear.) We have a  domestic patriotism as Scotchmen or  as Englishmen or as Irishmen, or what  you >will. AVe have an Imperial  patriotism as citi-ens of the British  Umpire. But surely,' in addition to  that, we have also an Anglo-Saxon  patriotism which embraces within its  ample folds the whole of that great  race which' has done so much in every  branch of human effort, and above  all in that branch of human effort  which has produced free institutions  and free.communities."  Referring to Armenia aud to the  desire on the part of the Americans to  do something to help the distressed  Christians of that unhappy country,  he pointed out that, unaided, America  could do little 'or nothing. Any  attempt at isolated action on her part  would bring her in to contact with one  or more European powers, and he  invites her to join Great Britain in  remedying the abuses that exist under  the Tuikish rule. If ever there was a  case in which the strength of union  could make itself felt it wonld be here.  England and America could absolutely  dictate-not only to Turkey or one or  two minor powers; but to the great,  nations as well. Their power for good  would be incalculable." With such  meu as Cii.oibbuumn on one side and  Wolcott on the other not only is no  I'iTl.wr-^-o^lHi^readeli^b  large probability of an international  -igreement.  A SOLUTION OF TIIE DIFFICULTY.  Everyone is agreed that the Americans and English who own and control  all the great mines ofthe Transvaal  can no longer submit to the oppression  of the  Boers.    It was a difficult question to tackle.   The Boers were quite  justified in pointing out to all   who  came after the gold, that they were  not invited,  they came of their own i  accord and   therefore   ought not  to j  complaiu    of   their   treatment.     In:  ordinary    cases   nations   have   every '  right to manage their internal affairs '  how they like.    But this is not   an  ordinary case.    The  foreigners   out-1  NOTES. '  Our contemporary the Province is  opening the eyes of British Columbia  ,in 'the matter of high art printing.  The almanac which it has issued this  year-from its own presses is equal lo  anything that bas previously appeared  here. Another- contemporary" the  Trail -Creek News has issued an  exceedingly well'got up special number which it alleges was entirely  printed in its offices at Trail. Wc  were considerably surprised on opening a copy of. the - latter to see a  "Province" ' almanac fall out from  between its leaves. Does the Trail  Creek news advertise its opponents or  was this a dead gife away?  The Emperor, of Germany states his  intention of again risking the'Reichstag to support him in his design of  doubling the German navy. -If that  body lefuses, which it probably \vill  he will appeal to the nation. Now  the "nation is already groaning under  an enormous war vote. * The taxation  for all purposes amounts to ij>]5 a head  of the population, and it is not likely  that the people will put tip \vith any  further burdens. The peace establishment of Germany "amounts to more  than half a million men', while tlie war  footing is no less thanM-,(SCO,000. ��������� The  nation has to keep the half million  lusty warriors all the time and is  getting sick of it.  Sir Charles Topper is at once High  Commissioner in' England and Secretary of State in Canada. This is a  very good instance showing how these  haughty aristocrats of the East think  they c_.ii trample down all the conventions with which nations have found  il neefssary to surround themselves.  The High Co!tiims'"ion'ei- of Canada is  practically an amb;}s=adoi. In fact he  ranks at the British Court with the  ambassadors of Foreign Powers. _Now  Ihe very first thinf? that is nece.-sary  in an ambassador is that he should not  be a party politician. In the case of  the High Commissioner and the  Agents General of the great colonies  this is a most important point and yet  here is our High Commissioner occupying at the same time a highly impor- j  ant. party position and the eqitally  important non partisan position in  London.���������It-is impossible to fill the  two, properly, at the same time.    .*  A great many people in town li'eep  dogs. They keep them because tjhey  love l.hein. "'Thereason.why they love  them is riot easy" to see. The dogel are  dirty, Useless; ugly, badly bred and a  general...nuisance to everyone.- This  love of persons for objectionable dogs  it one of those mysteries like freight  rates and our postal arrangements  which- are so. constneted as to baffle  the keenest intellect. There is! no  harm'in-people keeping'dogs, but they  ought, really to keep theni arid [not  allow them to loaf about the streets  especially1 at" night when ' the' brutes  have.a habit ofJsitting up on their  tails and barking nt nothing. One dog  will commence this business until he  makes "another' deg on the other side  of the town answer him. Then .they,  begin to argue and other curs join in  until the whole place isa pandemonium.  This ;is of courso a matter of indifference to a man who sleeps as if he was  dead, but then theie are a great many-  people who-do not. Women and  invalids are not always .blest, with  profound -'slumber and they have a  right to be protected from the nuisance  caused "by other'" people's" ciirs.* Any  one is quite justified (morally) in getting up and.shooting these howling  curs.

C.FEBUARY   8, 1896.  ������ ���������..  I  HINTS IX EEGABD TO TELLUEIDES.  Written by Dr. ��������� Richard Peaice,  manager Boston and Colorado Smelting" Company, in the Mining and  Scientific Press:  At the present time, owing to. the din"  covery of gold in Cripple Cr.ek in combination with telli.r.mii, prospector- are  . on lho sonrob for similar- conditious in  other districts, and ic has occurred to me  that a few hints in regard to tellurites  might be of some .value. .   .  Tellurides p-oper are rarely found to  exist near tbe t-iiifnceof loJes'that may  contain theni iii depth.- This is due to  the' fact that tellurium is susceptible to  oxidizing action iikt* iron pyrites and  other minerals when they are exposed to  weathering iufluence..  This weathering action, in the case of  tu.iurides, has the effect of converting the  tellurium into iin oxidized form,  which  ' Oorubines wiih  the" _xid������*  ot   iron   and  seldom shows any evidence of its exist  ' euoe, except in ra o ciises. when the ore is  exceedingly rich, nnd  then the oxide of  le.lurium ivpears as. a yellowish-brown  ;: stain on the rock.  The gold resulting from   the oxidising  change occurs as a brownish powder, and  does not possess the properties of gold  fouud  under < ther   conditions.   It has  iittle or no luster,   and  is   so  light' in  weight and   spongy....that   the  ordinary  process of panning fails iu most instances  to indicate its existence:   The ordinary  method of assay will, however, prove its  presence, and this should be done by some  iiBBayer who is. not only, qualified by ex-  , perience to make the. assay, but whose  ' honesty is beyond question.   Prospectors  will do well to give a. wide berth  to  the  quack assayer, who has some particular  method of bis own, or what he is  pleased  to call  a   "chemical   analysis"   process  whieh. be claims is the only true method  fo** determining the value of an oie.  ��������� These frauds nre scattered ali over the  country and are often the cause of no  . little, disappointment to the hone.t pros-  , pector. .It sometimes happens    that a  , prospector is so far away from a reliable  ; .assayer that it is impossible for him  to  ascertain whether the ore contains gold  or not when the presence of tellurium is  suspected.  - A very simple test,- requiring   no par-  . ticular .kill,'' cau be used to deter'miue  ��������� whether or not tellurium is present in an  oxidized foiin; for if it is:touhd that tellurium is present, it   is "pretty   safe   to  presume that gold accompanies it.   This  ' test, which I will give here, is one which  :I.recommended in a paper read before  . the Colorado Scientific Society some two  ��������� years ago, and was tbe   result  of  some  'investigations on oxidized Cripple Creek  ores.  Fifty grammes of the fine pulp ore. are  treated with dilute hydrochloric acid,  consisting of equal parts of acid and  water. The mixture is heated to boiling  and filtered, and co the filtrate is added a  solution of stannous chloride. . The te'-  lurium, if preseut, will immediately Le  'precipitated in a black Hoculent. form of  metallic tellurium; if its quantity is small  . it is best to heat the solution, which aids  the separation. It must, however,, be  remembered that this test is only applicable to of es which contain the tellurium  in an oxidized form, and is of uo value in  other eases. '  ' Below tbe water line the tellurites  proper occur, and in Ceipple Creek they  hre represented by theminerals sylvauite  aiid oalaverite. Sylvaihte is as white ahd  lustrous as pure silver, and .contains,  when pure,' about" twentyseven per cent  gold. Calaverite has a slight yellow appearance, resembling somewhat a pale  variety of iron * pyrites, and contains  ���������bout forty per cent of gold.  ������������������ -The'presence of tellurium does not' in  every ciise prove. the existence of gold,  but I think it may be said to be the rule  nt Cripple Creek.. Boulder county has  produced what is termed native tellurium  and telluride _f lead, altite,, which contains no gold whatever, and I have  known of tbe occurrence of telluride'' of  bismuth "(tetradymit'e) in Montana containing little or no gold, but these examples are rare.. The occurrence of fluorite  of a'purple or'amethystine color, ^so  characteristic of Cripple Creek ores,  may be .regarded as a favorable indication of the coexistence of tellurides.  This peculiar association is well -barked  in other districts, such as Boulder  county, Colorado, and in the tellurium  gold ores of South Dakota, so that it  indicates some" sort" of close- kinship  between,the two minerals, or rather  that tbey owe their existence to some  one common origin;  The distribution of tellurium is inii-  nately 11101-e extensive than is geuer-  ally supposed, but ils importance as a  mineralizer of gold   has not been  rec  WI__.CI_S.  The American Lino LSle-mier St.  Paul which went ashore near Long  Branch has been lightened and floated  off. She steamed quietlv tn New  York where it was found that she is  absolutely uninjured. The beach on  which she struck was smooth sand.  Thu salvage on her will be  enormous.  The British Ship Kilbrannan struck  on a reef olf Port Townsend on Wednesday last. She was inward bound  from Callao. She was bowling down  the Straits under full canvas before n  bright, Nor-AVester. The moment- she  struck all three masts went by the  board and the. ship was thrown" over  on to her starboard side. J.t.iii-Ls weie  made to launch the boats, but they  were immediately swamped hy the  seas that continued to break over the  unfortunate vessel. Tugs went out to  her assistance, but owing to the fury  ofthe waves were unable to approach  her. The latest information was that,  fears were entertained that she would  speedlygoto pieces and that .all on  board would be drowned.
