Victoria, April 9th.���������The government has withdrawn the sale of hands  for school purposes bill and substituted  the land bill straight. This virtually  restores the system abolished in 1S92.  The miuing clause of the Assessment  Bill as now ameiided reads 1 per cent,  on assessed value. ' This to he assessed  on ore or mineral bearing substances  at the mine a. determined incase of  dispute, by a smelter reduction or  refinery returns. No ore is to be taxed  unless removed.

NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  Treasury'Department Kulings on Lead Ore  Tonnage.  Spokane, April 7th.���������A new ruling  on lead oreduties .which will make a  considerable difference to many of the  mine owners of Kootenay has been  made by the Treasury Department.  The duty on lead ore is three-quarters of a cent, per pound Heretofore  this* has been considered to mean  three-quarters ' ot" a cent on the lead  that is contained in the ores, If the  ore runs GO per,.cent lead, duty was  paid on 00 per cent of the ton. But  tbe ^department has notilied the smelters that hereafter this will be construed to mean' three-quarters of a  cent for each pound of the gross ore  tonnage," if the lead in the ore is of  greater value than .the silver.

NAKUSP.  <v  The  mining record office  has been  innvwl  to the building on Broadway  formerly    occupied     by    the   Ledge  newspaper.  A large number of prospectors have  gone from here to the Needles on  Lower Arrow Lake the show having  left there sufficiently to admit of prospecting some distance from the shore.  Pete Genelle & Co. are running thier  sawmill full time, they have two  thousand ties to take out for the C. P.  R. upon which they are engaged, and  men are still taking out logs in the  bush.  Deputy sheriff Robinson, under .a  warrant, iri'Nault vs Inland Construction Co., offered for sale a building aud  2. carts,|the building was sold, but the  sale of the carts was adjourned until  May 5th, subject, however, ^to private  offers.  The wholesale firm of McMillian "-.  Hamilton of Vancouver and Nakusp  appear, from the quantity of goods  arriving and being snipped, toj-be doing  a flourishing business. We hope to  see tht-m demonstrate that Nakusp is  one of the most suitable points for a  wholesale house in West Kootenay. ���������  The owners of the Promestura  mineral claim at Cariboo creek have  commenced work again and che reports  from there are that the claim is improving, we may expect soon to hear  of ore oeing shipped, from there. If  smelter returns are equal to the assays  the Promestura will have a place  amongst the rich mines of Kootenay.  The boiler for the C. & K. S. N. Co's.  new boat was brought down by the  s.s. Nakusp on her last trip and is  today being taken on board. J. McCain in charge of the house work is  making good progress. Chief engineer Stephens and staff have a large  portion of machinery in place. The  caulking will be completed this week,  so that we may confidently expect to  have another boat plying on Arrow  lakes by the early part of May.  KASLO.  Mr, Proctor, of Balfour, is in town.  He has been visiting his property in  the dry ore belt.  The entertainment in aid of the funds  of the Methodist church, on Wednesday  last was a great success and by request  was repeated on Thursday. The church  benefitted to the extent of 860.  Mr. Hewitt Bostock, the Liberal  candidate for the Dominion House,,  has been here for two or three days.  Meetings of his supporters have been  held and local committees formed.'  Mr. Bostock leaves on Saturday; for  Ainsworth ahd Nelsbn. "'  Great changes are understood -to be1  taking place at the concentrator at Three  Forks. Capt. Moore is resigning the  management of the business. Mr. J. D.  Farrell lately divisional superintendent  ot the Great Northern went up from  Kaslo yesterday to take charge.  The frames for the new steamboat  to be built by the International Trading; Co. have arrived at Kaslo. Mr.  Alexander the manager of the company is expected here early next week,  when the building of the new boat will  be commenced.  riliOT    BAX.  Mrs. McLaughlin is now ready to show  tier patrons a complete stock of _ both  imported and domestic spring millinery.  She has secured tbe services of Miss  Johnson, of Spokane, to' attend to the  trimming. Spri.g suits and a������ti3tic  gowns will be a specialty of the es  establialiment *  The steamers Ainsworth and Kaslo  had a slight collision in the harbor here  yesterday. ��������� No damage was done.  ���������Capt. Allan-Lean,has a.cameraandjs.  delighting the hearts ot his lady friends  by taking very pretty pictures of them  aud their children.  Quite a number of the men have  brought their families to live here lately  and it will not be long before a school  will be in order.  The more ore is taken out of the Blue  Beil the more, is brought iu sight. It is  a whale of the largest kird. The grade  is also said to.be improving as the work  gets deeper.  ,. At the smelter everything is working  smoothly as usual. .About 100 meu aro  employed and bullion is being shipped  with great regularity. Mr. H. S. Mulli-  kea, the new superintendent, late of  Aurora, Illiuois, evidently thoroughly  knows his busiuess.  At the Blue Bell mine the work is proceeding very satisfactorily under the  superintendence ot Mr. J. H. Klock.  _" v. burleigh drills are doing good work.  About sixty men are employed and the  ��������� uitput is betweeu there and folic thousand tous a mouth.  "' There have been several claims  staked lately on Crawford Bay quite  close to here. The White Star, True  Blue and Blue Jacket are all quite close  to the water und the former shows a  ledge said to be 25 ft. wide, containing  copper and silvei. Work is to com-  mencedvion ic shortly if the assays to  be made are favorable.  $20,0-. worth of machinery the past  winter, and paid for over 2000 feet of  tunnel at a cost of about $50,000. Of  late the mine has been workod but  very little���������only in one drift, and one  raise since last. fall. The light operations are attributable : to the facts that  the company bas been .awaiting the  arrival of its machinery, and the difficulty of making ore shipments over  the wagon road out of the camp.  SLOOAN.  A gang of men are at work on the Two  Friends on Springer creek.  Two feet of clean ore is said to have  been recently struck in the lower tuonel  of tbe Enterprise.  A car load of ore is ready for shipment  at tbe Howard Fraction located on the  north fork of Lemon creek. Seven men  are working on the claim which is showing up better every day.  The town of Cody on the south fork  of Carpenter creek is beginning to stir  a bit of late. Lots have been placed  on the market and several buildings  are in course of erection.  Mr. R. J. McPhree, late.foreman of  the Blue Bell, has resigned that position in order to take a trip to Idaho.  He will probably leturn iu a few  months.  TBAIIi.  The new ferry boat to cross the  Columbia at this point is a pronounced  success.  The engine aud some of the cars for  the Trail Creek Tramway Co. have been  delivered and are already at work. It is  expected that the road will be ready for  freight and passengers not later than  May 10th.  For three months work Postmaste  Brown has received the niagnifi.ent  salary of $7.75. Mr. Brown has not  yet decided whether to buy the Le Roi  or start another smelter but he admits  that so much money .tor so little work  is liable to make a man feel uppish.  at  BOSSLAND.  A five drill compressor plant for the  Josie Mining" Company is. now at  Waneta and will be moved up as soon  as possible.  The latest- news is to the effect that  the Le Hoi dividend recently uejpided  on has been side tracked and will not  be p-issed until next month.  The Rossland Gold Mining Company  AINSWORTH.  Mr. Hedley, late superintendent  Pilot'Bay, is in town.  The contract for the Highlander  tunnel is finished, they are in between  600 and 700 feet.  Clark and Van Hook have a bond and  lease on the Tai iff. They are taking out  ore and will ship next week.  J. E. Boss got an extension of time,  on his bond on the United group, in  which to commence work.  About 125 tons of ore a week from  the Skyline is being shipped to Pilot  Bay.   They have 8 men working.   '  The..Canadian Pacific Mining-Co. fire  putting in a' Hume on Woodbury creek  to bring* water down to run the Burleigh  drill.  : The gold excitement has fizzled out-  It was caused by the necessity of having a drain made to take off the water-,|  which was spoiling the street. ,  Little Phil-Tom McGovern and his  brother Phil are working steadily and  taking out some good ore. Two men  are working on the Black Diamond.  Alex Prittie, while loading ore from  Skyline mine on the scow.fell and severely  huri his arm. He is under the doctor's  care at Piiot Bay.  Neelauds, the photographer of Nelson,  has beeu up at No. 1 mine taking views  ot various tunnels. =��������� The mine never  looked half as good as it does at preseut.  No real estate is changing hands at  .pr.esent_and___nUl_tJi^roads_inipi,qve  there will be no more ore shipped from  the.mines, The outlook for the camp  this summer is very good.  No. ,1 mine is looking well, they are  working 12 men, the new piping has  arrived for .running the water to the  concentrator "and will be taken up to  .the mine as soon- as the roads are  better.  . While congress is thinking about  adopting the .metric "system of weights  aud measures, a New York man has  started a new scheme of simplicity. He  proposes .to divide the year in thirteeu  mouths, twelve of twenty-eight" days,  the last of twenty-uiue. For example, if  Jaunary began on Sunday, each month  ot the year would begin on Sunday. It  ia claimed this'pluu wonld save much  confusion and enable people to reckon  dates with the greatest ease. "*  MAIL SERVICE.  LOCAL N������WS.  Nelson-Kaslo ltome.  OUTGOING MAIIj.  Monday  Str..

N. Co's. new steamer  Kokanee no longer perches high on tlie  shore pining for her native element, tn  all the bravery of flying colors, trim and  coy, the debuatante took her first plunge  into the blue waves last Tuesday afternoon.  Long before the hour appointed for the  .launching crowds made their way down  the railroad track toward' the ways.  Then came the steamer Nelsoc, loaded  down with spectators, aud herself gaily  decked in holiday-finery to welcome the  sister craft. For a time the qrowd_ovcr-^  ran the new boat admiring lier fine~l"n"_-~  and -��������� handsome appointments. Then  ctime the "knocking away of shores and  spars," and' slowly at first but fiually  with a bound she plunged into the water.  The traditional bottle of champagne  crashed in . the hands of Mrs. Troup, a  roar from, the steam whistle of tu������  Nelsou, answering shrieks from the  smelter whistle, a round of mingled  cheers from land and water aud the  Kokanee is launched aud christened.  Tlie Nelson ran alongside aud made  fast so that all might again have an'  opportunity to walk over and admire the  trim'-little craft. -  It is doubtful if a more graceful or  better appointed boat can ."be found in  British Columbia. She was designed by  Capt. Troup and built under the superintendence of Thos. ,T.

THAT LUCKY BULLET.  BY HENBY S. BROOKS.  (Copyright 18-5.)  I run a small coach from Bid well'���������  Station to Placer Flat. Bid well', station  is ut the head of the San Joaquin Valley. Placer Flat lies about a thousand  feet higher. They aro mostly ranchmen  living along the line of the road; they  keep a few cattle, raise a litle hay and  perhaps a fow potatoes where there is a  patch ot moist- springy land. Most of  them maiiage to - scrape a living out of  the increase of their stock, I suppose.  Some of theni do a little horse trading,  or tbe boys chop wood for the railroad  people, to help put a little. They are an  easy-going lot, that Is, tha men are���������  their women have a pretty rough time of  it,* though, but what can they do, poor  things, except slave from morning till  night, cooking, washing, milking and  plonty other things a sight rougher,  when the men don't feel like work, which  I should say is pretty often.  But the girls and young fellers try to  have a good time when they can, and  since Johnny Cogswell, at the station,  built a dance ho������se back of his place,  they get up straw-rides all along the line,  and I tell you there's a heup of fun going  those times. There Is nothing like a straw-  rido if you want to make up to a girl.  As soon us they're fairly landed iu the  dance-house they stiffen out and sit in a  row as prim as a lot of Quakers. No one  would believe they were the same girls.  But there was ouo girl, I toll you she  was a slaver, though some wouldn't allow that she was quite white. She lived  with her father, an old Portug.0, Don  Fernando Soto, on a bit of a vinoyard he  had raised, up near the Flat. There were  only tho'two of them and an old colored  woman, who couldn't speak a word of  English. The old man was rich, so everybody said, anyway, bu; a meaner, stingier, more excitable old cuss no oue ever  - sue; and he was mighty ready with a  knifo too. Mariquita too was so pretty  and clever, that lots of the boys would  have loafed arouiid if they had dared, bur,  '���������'tbe old man had. cut two or throe of  them, and the.rest shied. Some of them  would have laid tbe old fellow out, but  Mariquita was that fond of him, whon  they were'nt quarrelling or spitting lire  at one another, that they had to drop all  notions of getting '.even.  There  being   no   neighbors    nigh. for  Mariquita  to   get   into   the   strawrides,  she   used   to ride down with me   on   the  box   seat,   whenever there was   to   be  a  ���������danco-at-the -station.--"-You-see,���������she���������had-  coine to some sort of n compromise, with  tho old man.     She wasn't to let   any  of  tho young tollers prowl  around the hill,  and  ho was to let hor go to   the   station  whenever   there   was   auy. heel   and too  going on.   The flrst  time she rode down  I struck tlie old follow for tho stage faro,  but he flew  at   me in a fury.    Whon   he  was' mad -he looked like oue ot  the  old  apes in the Zoo, and I tell you he showed  his teeth.    He had   a . forked beard,   and  ���������at the end of each fork a big white patch  of hair, like a   ball ot cotton,   while just  above,   tho   hair was   still   nearly black.  His  eyes   glittered like' live ooals. . You  cau liot   ho   was a Tartar.    Of course,   I  took the girl. Sho knew I wouldn't.leavo  her, and stood thero laughing and enjoying it, tho witch.    Whon   sho   got   down  to   the station she carried everything lie-  foro   hor   with hor brilliant color," snap-  'ping black eyes, and easy grace. The rest  of   the   girls oouldn't talk worth a  cent  '-' after., they got  their skirts  straightened  and prim in'the .dance-hall,   but Mariquita kept the young fellers buzzing around  her,* and   talked   to -them   all   at once.  And clover! Why, you could wo tho boys  grow   an' inch*as sho wild something  to  each one of them, to tickle his fancy and  perhaps encourage his pride  a   little, for  sho liked to have  them all ruaning.aftor  her,   and   they would run,   the. best  of  them, for a*   glance out of the   corner of  hor eye.   I tell you I ought   to  have iiad  a ih-'t gal, and I could,   too,   if I had been  quite sure sho was white.    I never   knew  just* how to take her, though. She was tfto  most bewitching little dovil   one, minute,  and tho noxt���������oven  tiie  old Dob himself  couldn't bear her.    Of   course, it   wasn't  reasonable to suppose that I would drive  'her up and down all   the  time just for a  sweet smile, and to have her snuggled up  -   close to ms on the box seat. So, one trip,  when   she ��������� had   been   as sweet as honey,  and  thore   wasn't  another   soul on   the  stage, I put my arm around hor to steal a  c,kiss, and the next mlnut.   I had a stilet-  'to,   I   think   they   call- lt,   pricking me  mighty sharp in tho neck,   and, although  it'was dusk,   I could see hor eyes glittering like a wild' oat's.    Most men   would  have dropped her after/that; but tho next  trip  sho  stood    waiting  for me   in the  road, showing her pretty white teeth and  looking   so   bright  and    dainty  that  I  couldn't think of  leaving  her;   and she  snuggled   closer ��������� than ever.    I tell  you,  gentlemen, you noveT know how   to take  a girl till you try, and not   always then.  Of course, she had her fancy like other  girls.    This  was   Doc.   Lanier,   a young  medico,   from   Alabama.    A very clever  doctor, everybody agreed, and a good fel-  l.-r.   i_������ would drink ��������� llitt* too much,  ���������~7- ,.",T~.���������: fov  -"������������������ -  thougb, sometimes, and that hurt him.  You "sea that sort of thing may do for  ������ome men. but not for a doctor. Ha  might take off the wrong leg sometime.  Once, up at the Flat, they sent for him  to attend a man who bad been injured.  The Doc. was pretty full���������quite full, I  ! guess���������but he was able to ask where the  |fellow was hurt, and" when they told  | him in the head, he said, "Well, let m-  see his foet I" His idea was that it was  enough' for him to see any patient's big  toe! But they didn't look on it chat  way up at tha Flat, and so that lat tha  Doc. out for a while. But he waa only  sowing his wild oats, I guess, for ha  could sober up whenever he liked, and  then there wasn't a brighter man to be  found anywhere.  | The Doo. never missed cne of the faa-  dangoes, rain or shine, neither did tha  girl, and soon everybody saw what was  tho matter. One night, though, tha  doctor rode into tha station, and everybody could see that be bad been drinking, for he could scarcely keep himself  straight in tbe saddle. He was late, anil  . whon he dismounted he walked right  into the dance with his hat on, and  without even taking time to dust off. As  soon as Mariquita set eyes on him she  saw what was wrong, and when the Doo.  reached her, she straightened herself up  like a queen and cut him dead. He wits  too far gone to have any sense left, and  he tried to follow her .around, until Ned  Houston, a young feller from Texas interfered, and told him to clear out  Mariquita had been dancing with Houston, and he couldn't very well d*> any  less than ha did when the Doo. hung on  to the girl that way. I never saw Mariquita look so pretty as she did that  night Shu was dressed in white with a  bit of scarlet ribbon in her bosom, and a  spray of scarlet geranium in har hair.  Her eye's just flashed fira. No ona avar  saw such eyes, and tha way tbey scorned  the doctor ought to have brought him to  his senses.  When Nail Houston interfered, tha Doc.  far gono as he was, straightened himself  up, and said: "Follow ma, friend Texas; I don't allow any man to interfere  -between mo and a lady," and tbey walked out together, arm in arm. The  women never susplcioned anything, but  the men knew there was going to ha  trouble and would have followed, only  there was a dance on just then, and tbey  couldn't leave their partners. Just as  we were handing tha girls to their seats  we heard several scattering shots. Mariquita'turned white as a sheet, and ran  swiftly out of the halL We all followed,  and when we reached the spot, wa found  tha Doo. lying shot through the breast,  his head in Mariqulte'a lap, and mora  scarlet on ber white dress than belonged  to tha bit of ribbon or the geranium.  We carried tha wounded man into the  house, and then you should have beard  Mariquita scorn poor Ned Houston.  "You are a brave man, Indeed," she  said, "to shoot your friend when he Is  intoxicated! Coward! Assassin! Murderer ! Begone out of my. sight! Never  let ma S3e your cowardly face again."  But Ned couldn't help it Ha explained it all to me. They had just walked  into the yard back of tbe bouse,whan the  Doc. drew. "Step off ten paces." he  said, "thon turn and fire." Ned tried to  pacify him, but ha had lost his head, ana  breaking away from him commenced to  shoot You see, there, was some jealousy  at tha bottom of it, as well as liquor.  The Doc. got well after all, though he  had a pretty close call. After that he  kept away from liquor and the girl favored him more than ������ver. When the old  Don fell sick she sent for him to cure  him, and though they say that the old  fellow kicked quite lively, he had to tak.  his medicine, I suppose. Anyway the  Doc. brought him round all right, for he  was tough as a pine knot, but he was so  fond of that vineyard of his'n that thc-y  couldn't keep him out of it long enough  to got well. It was a mighty pretty  place, that is a fact, nothing like it this  side of the valley. No wonder the old  Portugee ' liked it so much. Everybody  laughed at him when he flrst took lt up;  but it Droved to be in what thoy call tha  "Thermal Belt," where there are no  frosts, and where tho grapes grow as  they grow nowhere else. Four years from  the cuttings he was making plenty of  wine, which he sold at his own price in  the city, for the grapes had a wonderful  flavor, they say. Thon he built a fine  wina cellar.-and colnad���������monar;wthough  no one would think it to look at tho  place from the road. One thing Is certain,, he had a long parse, well filled,  which he kept hid somewhere about the  place, for ho was too level headed to take  stock in no banks.  "' When the old Don took his relapse the  Doc. looked serious, and soon we beard  tbat late one night ha had ridden up to  the Flat for a,priest. Then we all kn<>w  what was coming." Ho passed^ in his  checks, quietly enough at last, we heard,  and the very next day the priest married  Marquita and the doctor. You see the  rest of the boys didn't stand no show  from the day the Doc got tbat lucky  bullet into him.  Doc. Lanier fell Into a mighty good  thing as it turned out, for the old man's  estate panned out pretty big; much more  than they had counted on, and ho did'ht  owe a dollar. Tbe fact is, I have no  doubt he miist have had money beforo ho  pre-empted that vineyard. - The Doc.  straightoned up liko a man after ho got  married, and Mariquita is just too pretty  for an outsider to look at.

Everybody likes the protty little forget-  me-not and"ii_*_s the flower more perhaps  because of its name than Its beauty. How  was it so called? The "Germans account  for it by quite a pathetic romance. It  seems that onee upon a time a knight and  a lady were walking by the banks of the  Danube when the latter asked her "gallant gay" to pluck: for" her a tiny blue  flcwor which she saw growing in the  .stream. No sooner said than done, but the  knight, overbalancing, fell in to the river,  and owing tb the slippery nature of the  hank and the weight of his armor  was carried away by tho current. As he  threw the flower ashore to his lady he cried  out with his last breath, "Vergis mlch  nicht���������!" ("Forget-menot!") Andbver since  thc flower has been looked on as an em-,  blem ot fidelity.  Uutter is a commodity that is not liable  to sell beyond Its value; that is, poor butter is not going to bring a good price.  Butter must be pleasing t. the aye, a*  well as acceptable to the taste, _, to hring  customers.

It appears that tho Treasury Department of the United States h.is made a  recent ruling to the effect that a new  meaning shall be given to I he clause  regulating the duty on lead ores shipped into the United States. The duty  is three fourths of a cent per pound on  lead contained in ores in which  the value of the silver is less than that  of the lead. Up to the present time  this has been construed as meaning  that if the ore runs 70 per cent lead,  duty was to be paid on 70 pi*r cent of  the ton.. Under the new ruling duty is  to be collected on the gross onr.age of  all ore in which the. value ci the lead  exceeds that of the silver. So tlie  matter stands at present, I'-.ough the  Treasury Department has ] . utilised a  rehearing on the question, ;ncl it is  possible .hat the decision may "he  reversed.  This, taken in connection with tho  ���������erection of ..government sampling  works at the border, poii.ts iu one  direction, the erection of mon: smelters  within our own country.' While these  things will temporarily work hardships  to mine owners in *Kootenay the  ultimate outcome, will be for the  material advancement of the mining  industry- in this region. Willi  increased transportation and other  facilities there is now only one reason  why Kootenay ores should .not l*e  treated exclusively at home. This is  the present lack of an adequate supply  of cheap fuel. Given, however, such  an increased demand as these new  measures will create, and this last  obstacle .will be .overcome. We have  within .reach coal .fields which will  probably be opened by railroad this  year, and when this is done pig lead,  bar silver and' matte will lie tlie only  products which' we will have to offer  from our mines.  Editor L. K. Armstrong, of Mining.  in commenting, on the new ruling says:  "If the ore contains GO per cent lead and  and 50 ounces in silver - the . value of  the lead being $36, and of the silver  about, $514, the duty is three quarters  of a Jcent on every pound in each ton  shipped; or $15 per ton; $6 per ton in  excess -of 'the charge as heretofore  made. Tbat this will close many of  the British Columbia mines temporarily is certain; and it will ultimately  drive ' the' smelting ..industry; into  British Columbia."  ���������So-far���������as���������the���������dosing���������of-niinesis  concerned this may be true in a few  cases and temporarily,..but the eifect  will hot be far reaching. Only tlie  Slocan and Ainsworth districts will  feel the new measure and even there  scarcely any of the properties are so  low in grade as not to. contain some  ore which wiih sorting can bo shipped.  The chief, burden will fall or. prospectors, an������l others with limited means,  as.it will greatly retard development  work on low grade prospects. In the  end, however, these will receive the  greater benefit from local <*mHtei'8  and consequent low transportation  charges. Take it all round it appears  that our neighbors are only forming  plans to keep our own. dollars in our  own pockets.  . "TO BE OR NOT'TO BE."  The question may not be strictly  original _but- it is. one which Nelson is  asking just now more than,ever. Shall  we remain in swaddling cloilips, dry  - nursed with indifferent-attention, or  "has the time come to kick off the  trammels and under municipal organization strike'out-for ourselves. The  moment this question is-' asked .it is  usually met with numerous objections.  "It meansincreased expenses." "The  taxes'- -are-���������'__%_! i enough already."  "What's tlie good of it anyway?" are  hurled at the head of the suggestor.  The Miner will- risk this bombardment in order to point out a few "facts.  As the admitted commercial, business  and legal center of Kootenay we owe  to ourselves a consideration above a  few dollars and cents. We cannot  forever remain ' content to see.affairs  of the utmost importance to ev.ery  citizen administered without -.any.  opportunity of a voice in the matter.  If we would gather and hold the  desirable class of citizens, constantly  looking "for" a favorable place to establish themselves, much must be done in-  the way of putting our, town in more  ���������attractive shape. Under municipal  government this could be done rapidly  and  effectively.    An   organized  lire  department, control of our own police,  retaining for local use commercial and  other revenues, and many other advantages would accrue. But above .-ill  would come the administration ofoui"  affairs by those vitally interested .in  them, and chosen by the people for  that purpose.  This is intended merely as an introductory comment. The Miner would  be glad to hear from some of our leading citizens on the subject, and these  columns are open I'or the free discussion of this most important matter.  Let us hope to here more of it and that  soon.  I NCR E A SED' B USINESS.  As will.be observed by this week's  dispatches Mr. Austin Coriun of the  Spokane Falls and Northern Railroad  lias given expression to some views  regarding an increased train service  between Nelson and Spokane. The  improvement which the manager ofthe road has.in view is the putting on  of a through train daily each way  between Nelson and Spokane. The  indications are that ��������� this new order  will go into effect about May 1st.  This will be very gratifying news to  all interested in this sect ion. Not only  will the increased service be of great  value to all resident business men and  mine owners, but the effect from an  outside stand point cannot but be  beneficial. Those who, are watching  the progress of Kootenny with a view  to investments will find in this an  unquestionable indication of general  growth and . increased prosperity. To  all such it will be a warning against  delays. Our ''ground "floors" are  becoming less numerous every day.  Do not delay too long; before getting  in on one of them.  NOTES.  This week. the fleet of steamers ply-  ing on Kootenay Lake has received an  addition in the shape of the Kokanee  ���������i boat about, equal iu tonnage the s.s.  Nelson. Another boat is being built  for the C. & K. S. N. Co., at Nakusp.  These are some of the many indications  of the rapid increase in the transportation requirements of this section and  the growing ' volume of ' business  throughout Kootenay generally.  The London  Mining Journal in the  issue of March 21st. devotes nearly a  column    to    West    Kootenay.     The  article outlines the development'in the  Rossland and Trail Creek districts and  points out  the numerous advantages  which that legion possesses for profitable   investments.     After  describing  Ihe   leading  properties and their pre-  ���������*.-.- condition the writer concludes:  .In 1S!)5 Trail Creek   shipped-20,000  tons of ore, but in 189G there is little  doubt but five times this quantity of  ore will  be produced.   This   shows  wonderful progress in a single year,  and justifies the hopes of those who  think   that   British   Columbia   will  have the most prosperous gold mining camps in the world in five years.  Such  words as   these   from a journal  of    recognized    standing    and    vast  influence in the great mining centers  ofthe world cannot but result in great  good.   This especially at a time when  so many are seeking reliable information regarding our mining resources.  Tbe Spokesman Review of Spokane  makes some editorial comments on the  ti riancial "con di ti on s" of -the-East *** a_  compared   with   this   region.     After  pointing out that business failures in  the east have been heaviest in history  during the first quarter of 18G6, while  the Pacific " Northwest has enjoyed a  prosperity and-freedom from failures  not    known    for   years,   the  article  proceeds:  Someday the,eastern people will understand, that they h-ive the wrong  end  of the financial poker.    If they  were nofdense in their understanding   of   the   money   problem,   lhey  would have" learned before this that  it is the attempt   to  go to  the gold  basis that is generating their financial and   industrial  troubles;     that  the predicted    wave   of  prosperity  which  was  promised as the reward  of tiie repeal of the Sherman law has  not put in appearance; "and that the  country was prosperous when silver  was coined, and  is in  distress now  that  business has been forced, to the  gold,standard.  The Pacific   coast,   can   endure  the  gold standard if the east can stand it.  We have gold mines and can pro-  ^.  duce   new   supplies . of legal tender;  . the east .has neither gold nor silver,  and must be pinchedby the effort to  limit coinage   to one" metal.     The  wonder is that it can stand so "much  u of the pinching process and still bug  the   delusion- that the shoe is a fine  fit. "'���������'   ' ' :;  SECOND EPISTLE .  TO THE KOOT.UTES.  And many voices were lifted up,,and-  men ' waxed warm, yea"even wroth,  mid some cried. "Nay, nay, go to"  when certain one- were named.  And   behold a certain scribe  went  about g.u iiei ing the words of lhe :uid-"'  titude that he might engross theni on  a scroll.  Now this scribe had dwelt among  the Romans and had learned of their  wisdom, and was a tribune.'  Moreover he was viliant, a mighty  mail, rcnouned not only as a skillful  scribe, but for warlike deeds.  And as he went out among the  people behold on a certain day he was  struck with an idea.  And the whizzing thereof was like  unto a comet, and it struck hard.  And he said "behold these men are  jays" which in the [ancient Hebt'ew  means men without knowledge.  "Now I, even I, am filled with learning, wise in the ways of law. Behold  I would look well in a toga. Go to, I  will announce myself. Yea the people  will fall over themselves lo cast lots  for me." '*'  And he wrote it on many scrolls and  cast it forth among the people.  Then the people gathered, having  read the scrolls and many wagged  their heads and said "Ha!, ha!" and  some said "Selah" which in the Egyptian tongue is "rats."  And the scribe's name was on the  lips of the people for many days.  But behold on a certain day all the  tribes gathered and lots were cast.  And the name which was on many  tongues was written on few of the lots.  And another man went up to the  Sanhedrim.  And that night a certain man dwelt  in his tent and thought deeply, but his  thoughts were not written oil a scroll  because none fireproof was at hand.

Siime ciiniineiils in I hat paper  drought forth tin- following i-imimiii.i-  tation which is (riven a. prominent  \. place in llie issue of March 23th.  To the Editor of the Pall Mall Gazette.  Sir,���������In your issue of to day it is  remarked: "While one has hecome  ticftistoined - to regard Cau.-ida and  British Columbia as a district, iu whieh  stnc&-riiising, lumher and agritinll me  'are the main pursuits, it is somewhat  of a surprise to find it laying claims to  gold production;" and "'Canadian gold  -is not, according to habit, regard as  the genuine -tuff."  Canada and  British   Columbia   can  hardly he regarded as a dist rift, seeing  that   British  Columbia  is  only one of  :llie  Canadian   provinces.     Regarding  "the'  gold   product,   of  Ihe province of  Ontario, I confess I know nothing, but  -ns n  British   Columbian   since  1870 I  ���������may  be  permitted  to  point   out. that  gold   mining    in    my    province   has  (attracted attention  since 185S-9 when  ihe  large exodus of  inineis from California, to Biitish  Columbia opened up  ���������operations  in   the famed   Cariboo district.    It  is estimated Hint the out {int.  of   gold   there   to   the    i>r.-enl    lime  ,'   amounts   to some   $-l_.(KAOI)f),   while  other parts   ofthe province have fur-  lushed  at  least  $10.01)0,0-0 additional;  and  "genuine stun" at   that.'   At the  present   time  several   hydraulic,   gold  mining companies are operating in lhe  Catibon  country, in  addition to white  and Chinese  miners  engaged   in   the  more primitive methods of extraction.  Large  areas  of gold-bearing country  are still untouched.  West Kootenay, Biitish Columbia,  ���������is, without doubt, the most extensive  and promising, mining region in Canada.. While development of the silver  'mines   has    rapidly    progressed    for  "_evenil years, rich gold-hearing ores  nre being constantly discovered, Trail  Creek in particular having attracted  much attention in connection with its  rich gold and copper deposits.  *���������' At Alberni. on the West Coast of  Vancouver    Island,   placer   gold   and  "quartz ledges'."how unmistakably the  .existence of the precious metal, while  without exaggeration it, can lie stated  that   in  almost   every   section   of this  'enormous    province    gold    has been  .discovered.  ". I have heard it asserted more than  once that British Columbia must eventually rank   with, if  not e.xcel. South  'Africa and Australia as a producer of  ipiecious   metals.     Of  this,   however,  ���������theie can be no question, Ihe province  of'to-day, with its liberal mining laws  and  absolute  protection,  offers a rich   niiii-extensi.ve^Held-.to_t he-prospector-  and capitalist; and I venture to predict  it will be no matter of surprise to  eilher that British Columbia's claim as  a gold producer is, after ���������ill, well  grounded.���������I am,  Sir,  your obedient  "servant, -Rohert Ward.  Junior Constitutional Club, Picca-'  dilly, March 20th. '~    *  Mr. Ward might have also added  I hiit with over ..$3,000,000 last year and  a conservative estimate of .$10,000,000  for ill- output for 1898 the West Kootenay district will m five or six years  produce a higher value.in gold, silver  lead and copper than all the gold of far  "famed Cariboo. By the time British  Columbia reaches the $100,000,000.  mark which itis fast approaching in  mineral production our claims a inin-  l, ing country should be fairly substantiated.  z^y&'Visi&zi  -WHOLESOME  2   Ounce  Cm  Sold  lor   25   Cents.  _-_.-������������-( Bewaiid   !��������� Canada  t_J������  Original  for The Minek  By J.  F.  Bledsoe.  The hush which always follows an  iuterestiojj story well told hud passed  away. "Old Hank" had carried his  mutilated hand around for inspection as  tho finale to his rattle snake yum aud  comments were being made ou his unavailing efforts to again locate the venom  gu.ii'dcd spot in the deserts of Arizona.  "Talking about lo&t mines," said Tom  Allison, "you all heard of old Jim Munu,  leastwise, any of you who ever prospected  along (he Mexican border must. Well  now there was a man what hud'a 'lost  mine' bee in his bonnet. A regular  humble bee. Why I reckon that Jim  Munn spent 820,000 trying to find a ninn  what could rend a little dirty scrap of  skill not more than three inches wide and  six inches long with a couple of dozen  'glyphics or what you call 'em on it'"  "What? None of you ever heard that  yarn? Well, well."  The look of contempt on the face of  the speaker demanded apology of some  kind, and the only thing handy wns  passed.  'Well now that's good stuff. Here's  lookin' at you. That yam? Oh that's  old but hero goes."  "Well you see old Jim Munu, he wau't  so old in them days, had spent some  time koo.kiug n round Arizona and the  border nnd more than once risked his hair  in trying to get into the Ynqui country  down in Old Mexico. Say boys there is  places down among them pesky Injuns  whero the ledges stick out bigger than a  house���������but that ain't nij yam. Well  I meets Jim after not lunuiDg up against  him for about two years, aud I says 'Jim  where you been.' Then he ups and takes  me out to a quiet corner and shows me a  little piece of buckskin all daubed over  with queer scrawls and Buys 'Tom Allison  you find me a man what can read that  and your fortune's made'."  "Now I ain't; caring much about a  foi tune in them days, having some dusr,  but I got a bump of curiosity bigger'n a  antelope and I. says 'Give -_utlie yarn  lirst and we'll hunt the man after'."  -'���������Then Jim begins, 'Well Tom you  remember when I left two years ago saying I'll make the Yaqui range or bust.  Well I made it this time, but I don't  know if I made much else. Now I got  across the border all right and was striking straight for the sierra Madre range.  "'One day I wns plodding down a narrow canyon shut in by cliffs piled high  on either side, when, just us I was thinking of making a halt for the night, I  rounded a shnrp corner and came suddenly on a little round valley. Ou all  nides the ridges ran up for thousands of  feet, but-there was a busin about a mile  across,level and rank with grass. Clumps  of small trees dotted it here and there  aud away across toward the farthest clilF  I saw some tumble down ruins. Now  you know ruins is mighty plentiful down  that way, so I only scouted around until  I concluded none of them pesky Yaquis  was about, and then went up toward the  old buildings for a camp.  " 'Well I" got some supper nnd wont  prowling around, up and down over the  heaps of rubbish nnd- broken walls, for  it must have beeu a mighty big place  some day. Then I got out to one wing-  like nnd was passing under au arch when  I heard a cry that made be jump, and  brought out my gun instauter, I had  just stepped iuto a big room lighted by  round openings which must have been  meant for windows. Over across the  room on a pile of worn skins I saw the  being what made tbe noise. Say Tom.  thnt wns the nearest I ever come to running away in mv life. It was a mau but  such a mau I never come across. Hair,  why his hair was two feet long and his  beard more than a yard nnd all white as  snow, Skin like n badly tanned buckskin. Eyes round aud. fierce as a cat and  big as a half dollar. He threw up a hand  like the claws of a buzzard nud I stopped,  Then he at me iu n lingo that I never  heard before and -you know I've heard  most jargon in them parts. I answered  in my- best Mexican.. He only glared,  the harder. Then with a jerk as if his  jaws needed oiling be mumbled iu bad  Mexican -'Are you-Spanish?' 'No senor  an American'," I replied.  '"I thought he looked a little pleased at  that but he fell back on the pile of skins.  I.saw., he was weak and most likely sick.  Over.in a corner I saw where there had  been a fire but' not for some time. I  1 loked. around but not a scrap of grub  could I see. theu I tumbled. The old  man was starving as well as sick.' .Then  I got a move on, and in less than no time  had a fire going in the corner aud a slice  of. deer meat toasting, say, you should  have seen him tear that meat and swig  that coffee. When he hnd tilled himself  up he crawled back tp the pile of skins."  '."Senor" said I, "what are you doing  here!"'.  - "'Nothing, I am an old man, lam dying  I am doing nothing, nothing at all; his  voice rose io a rusty scream. 'But1, he  went on, 'the senor is kind.' he has a  good heart he will not harm an. old  man."  " 'No, of course not" I said.  " 'Well Tom I suppose it was too much  meat all to ouee but next morniog the  old mail was clean out of hi- head and  mumbling in the stranger lingo again.   I  tried all I could but no go.   Any of  my  Spanish only seemed to make him  worse.   Some days went by and I was  wondering how it would come out when  I heard the old man faintly call.  " 'Yes senor" I answered.  " 'Sick, very sick,' he muttered,   'Old  man die soon.'  " 'Oh no not yet, you will come around  all right.'  '"No. Soon dend.'andhe shook his head  I knew he wus right.  " 'The senor wonders to find me here.  Listen, the senor has been kind. I am  the last of my race, why should I not tell  you.'  " 'Then Tom that old man spun me a  yarn that beat creation I tell you. It  seems he was a direct descendent of an  old Toltic tribe and this was one of their  temples for sun worship iu times gone  by. When the Spaniards came the tribe  hnd fought them hard and long but to no  use. Finally the rest fell back and found  hiding away out there in that secret  valley where for ages they had went once  a year to perform the great sun feast and  butcher people to stand iu with their  god. Gradually they had died out until  the last of them, that old man, had been  left alone for more years than you or I  will live. You know how them beggars  hold on ter life. Theu his mind begau to  wander off and the first thing I knew he  was talkin' of gold. Gold in chunk., iu  lumps, by the ton until my hair stood on  end. About every second word was in  his own lingo but enough Spanish run  through it to make me savvey.  "So the night passed and it was along  toward sun up when he came tojhimself.  " 'Senor' he said, 'carry me out into the  open, let me see the great sun once more'  So I lifted him up and took him to a  place where the first sunshine over the  hills would break on his face.  "One after another the streaks of sunshine came over the hill. The old man  threw himself forward on his face. Then  lifting his hands began a song. This  ended I carried him back, aud for an  hour or two he rested quiet.' Then I  went out and rounded up the pack stock  and squinted about for any signs of  trouble but saw nothing. When I got  back the old man was lying iu tbe same  place but seemed to be worn out like he  been doing some hard work.  "'Senor come here,' he said, and I  went up.  " 'There is something for you.' Then  he handed me a plate of gold about a foot  across on which was a human face surrounded by rays. I know what it was  for I had seen the same thing on many of  the ruins only in stone. It was an image  of tho sun god of the Toltecs.  "Santa Maria" I cried "for the love of  heaven where did you get this?  " 'It is one of many, hidden deep from  thieving, . butchering - Spaniards'. he  replied, 'more I can't tell you.'  ���������'Then I begged and pleaded, what  good would it do when be, the last of  them Toltecs, was dead. Why hot let  me know.  "Suddenly the old man lifted his head.  'Swear to me' he said, 'that not one drop  < i Spanish blood flows in your veins, and  I hat not one grain of all shall ever cross  : Spanish palm.'  "I s wi i re fast enough for I always did  ': i,e a Greaser anyhow Then he fum-  oied inside his skin shirt brought out this  bit of hide and unrolling it started.  "���������Senor many years ago, this was the  grave of my last friend. Hunted, hunted  back by the Spaniards to this little valley.  Here they built this temple and many  men's children grew old, and their children closed their eyes. But always death  kept creeping up and the settlement  grew less and less. I know not how long  ago since I closed the eyes of my brother  the last bnt myself to go.  "Long before I was born or my grand ���������  father~either_the_ tribe_hollowed_out"ai  place in the cliffs up yonder. Iuto this  was stored the treasures of many a temple  which the fierce Spanish robbers would  have looted. There it rests today and  here is the key to its hiding place. When  my brother died I grew lonely and  wandered away for years. Time aud  time again I have sat, the despised old  Indian, aud listened to tales of plunder  nnd bidden treasure by the Mexicans as  tbey now call themselves. Listened and  smiled to think ou what I knew. Then  years camo on me and a great longing to  die here omong the bones of my fathers.'  "The old man's voice grew weaker, his  breath came in grasps, 'By aud by I will  tell you more. Tomorrow it shall be  yours���������who arejgood to the old Indian.'  "Well Tom I fell you I didn't sleep  much thnt night thinking of that gold  and fondling the chunk I had. I got np  by daylight and took a turn around to  ease my mind. Well I wandered off a  little way more 'n I mean't and it was  sun up when I got back. Now comes the  cursed part of my luck. Tbat old man  had crawled out iuto the sunshine and  was lying on his faoi, I got no answer to  my question of bow he felt, and when I  turned him over he was stone dend. I  tore off his shirt and got tbat skin but  what good was it. Nothin' but birds and  heads and zizzags all over, 'glyphics they  call 'em, Well then I guess I went, a little  off for I charged and tore around them  ruins some I tell you. It.was no go. Up  and down the rocks I climbed, for he  said 'in the cliffs up yonder,' but not a  trace. Well there ain't "much more. I  stayed a month; then them Yaquis came  skulking around' and gave me a close  race for the border and here I am. You  come down to my cabin tonight and I'll  show you that gold face.  "Well I went" said Tom Allison after a  pause, "and there it was, solid gold,  weighing about fifteen pounds.  "That was nigh onto thirty years ngo,"  continued thenarrator, twice Jim-Munn  risked bis hair among them Yaquis but  no go.  "Then an idea that maybe some of  them' fellers'" what monkey round the  pyrmids might rend that skin and off he  goes. Back he would come busted, go  inter the diggings, pile up a stake and  try again. I guess every scientific  snoozer in Europe knows old Munn and  that piece of bnckf-kin but not a galoot  of them could ever make head or tail of  its meaning. Last I heard of him he was  out in Berlin lookin' up some Dntchie  what claims to savvie them thing, but I  guess net, leastwise I ain't heard from  ' Jim for five or _ix years."  j    And all hand* took a drink.
