DYNAMITE   OUTRAGE.  Attempt to destroy the Bunker  Hill and Sullivan Mill.  Warden, Idaho, May 11.���������An attempt was made last night to burn the  Bunker Hill and Sullivan concentrator.  The perpetrators of the outrage may  have intended also to blow up rhe concentrator with dynamite. About 11.30  while the mill men were at (he boarding house taking their midnight sup-  per.a, terrible explosion was heard, so  heavy as to shake the houses in Kellogg  three-quarter- of a mile away. It was  .fi_jiind_._iat_.abi)ut 20_._feet_of_the_coni_.  pany's water flume, which furnishes  power for the mill and electric light  plant, had been blown out at a point  about 30 rods from the mill. .  Just about this time it was descov  ered that the north end of the mill,  next to the railroad track, was on fire,  but as the flames had not got under  much headway lhey were soon smothered. The parties who started the fin*  had climbed up a ladder and poured  several cans of oil on the building and  on a box on the ground.-  Ib is supposed that itwas the intention of the firebugs to put dynamite in  the Hume with a slow fuse attached  some distance from the mill, with" tlie  intention that it should explode .close  tothe mill while all hands were at  snpper. This would cut oil* the water  and the electric lights, ahd us the men  at supper would be attracted by the ex-*  plosion it would be some time before  tho fire would be discovered, Fortunately one of the mill men takes his supper with him and was eating it in the  Hack end of the-mill and noticed the  flames before they had done-much  damage and gave the alarm. .   ������  There is no clue to the prepetratoi _  of the deed. Mr. Yarbaugh, who lives  just below the mill, was awakened by  the explosion and when he went to  tho doorhe saw a man running down  thetrack. Another man wasseen running up the track just before the explosion. Men were put at work mending the flume today and it will probably  be ruuning tonight.  CHURCH NOTICES.  Sunday. May 17, 1896.

Jiulg'enieiit in Favor of Priority of  Location.  A judgement of some importance to  mining men was that delivered in Victoria by the full court, consisting of Justices McCreight, Walkem and Drake, in  the appeal of AtkitiB vs. Coy., This was  an appeal by the defendants from a decision of Judge Spinks, county court judge  of Kooteuay. The defendants and plaintiffs had each located tho same mineral  ground, the defeudeuts making a prior  location under "the name of Cariboo,'but  the plautiffs recording first under the  name of the Rambler, both cJiiiiiiB being,  however, recorded within tho fifteen days  time limit allowed by the statute. Judge  Spinks held that in disputes relating to  miuing claims priority of record should  prevail, and gave judgement in favor of  the Rambler,- which the plaintiffs had  located after but had recorded before the  Cariboo was ^registered. From this  judgement tho present appeal was taken.  The Full court allowed the appeal witli  costs, holding tbat priority of location  governed, provided the recording was  done within' the fifteen days allowed by  the statute.. .The" plaintiffs' counter  appeal for a new trial as to piiority of  location was refused, but plaintiffs were  allowed three months in which to proceed to a new trial on the question ot the  genuineness of the defenders'* claim of  title.

The preparations that are being made  at Kaslo for a two days celebration of tho  great British' - holiday ensure an even,  greater success than ever before. Race- ',  of all sorts are being arranged and every  kind of sport that can be thought of.  There will be music in abundance and !  decorations everywhere. '  An excursion is being organized from '  Nelson under the auspices of the Odd- j  fellows of which probably a very , large !  number of people will avail themselves,    j  BETWEEN   SPAIN   AND   UNITED  STATES.  Crew of ihe Competitor Sentenced to  Dcutli.  Twice lately have the people of the  United States hnd the excitement of ;>  war scare. Fist the coming struggle was  to b. with England over the Venezuelan  business, then with Spain because un  American vessel had beeu firsd ou iu lhe  neighbourhood of Cuba. This time the  trouble is with Spain again over Cuban  matters.  ���������   It is well known that a great deal of  filibustering is going on' iu Cuba. Thu*  is to say arms aud ammunitions are being conveyed to tbe insurgents b\  American men in American ships. According to the law of natious people  caught at this trade arc liable to be  promptly shot. In other words they art  rebels themselves and iu aiding them  actively they forfeit any pio'.octiou thai'  their^natiouality might otherwise afford.  No nation could recognize its subjects  caught in this business with oat becoming involved itself.  . An American ship the Competitor has  been caught by tho Spanish authoritie.-  while engaged in this filibustering bus  iness. Five of her crew ( of whom four  are Americans and one a British subject)  have been tried by court martial and sen  tenced to death. ������  The American govern menthas requested  a stay of execution until the verdict shah  have been approved by a civil court.  There the question stands at present  The request is a reasonable one for it is  quite p; esible that a court of military  officers actively engaged in a not too successful campaign against a foe, might not  be quite unprejudiced agaiust prisoners  accused ot aiding and abetting that foe. '  On the other hand the request is not so  ���������easily granted by the Spanish goverment.  There is intense excitement in Spain over  the Cuban rebellion. It is well known  that the Uuited States quite openly  favors the side of the. rebels and  more then winks at the trade between its  citizens and them. The Spanish government is severely blamed for not sup  pressing the trouble long ago and it is  folt that a consession in this case, to the  United States may bring od a revolution  in Spain. On the other hand itis believed  that so strong is the American sympathy  with Cubans that the Uuited States will  go to war with Spain rather then have  her citizens suffer for what is considered  interference in a rightous cause.  -    LATEST   INTELLIGENCE.  On Monday last an arrangement was  arrived at between Spaiu and the' United  States by which the Competitor prisoner.*,  irp to have a new trial before the ordinary court, under the treaties existing between the two governments. It will probably be months before the trial can take  place.  The agreement was arrived at only  just in time. The Admiral had confirmed the sentence and every prepnr  ation was being made for carrying it oui.  when a telegram arrived ordering all  papers to be sent to Madrid.  THE BRUSSELLS BIMETALLIST  CONGRESS.  The New York, Engineering and Mining Journal says: "The cause of international bimetallism is by no means  dead; on the contrary, it is making substantial progress, and especially iu Great  Britain, where nearly every prominent  political economist of less thiin seventy  yeai'sof-ageis-a-bimetftllist.���������-On-the-20th-  April there was at Brussels a very important meeting of bimetallists, representing, unofficially, most of tho  European countries, and it was decided  to establish a permanent- bimetallist  congress, with the object of discussing  such suggestions as are brought before it, nnd finally arriving at the most  desirable practical plan for" an international adoption of bimetallism.  "This is the first.rational step that has  really been taken of an, international  character, for, in all the monetary congresses of the past, 1878. 1881 and 1892.  no plan whatever was ready or presented,  and such an official congress, called together withojt any piearranged plan,  could never be empowered by tho respective governments to do anything:  failure wns, therefore, inevitable.. Non-  it may reasonably be expected ; that a  workable plan will be formulated, ami  will be understood and generally nppoved  by the several governments before the  next official monetary congress convenes.  "The names of the priucipnl representatives of the various nations at this con-  ferauce were as follows: Herren vou  Mirbach de Wabnitz and Arendt, for  Germany; Sir William Houldsworth and  Messrs. Grenfell and Shacksommer, for  Great Britain; M. Raffalowich. for'Riissia;  M. Rochussen, member ' of council of  State, for the Netherlands Count Alexandre Karolyi and Koloweat, for Hun  ary and Austria, respectively; M. Bones-  co, for Roumania, aud M.; Raeder, for  Denmark.,  "The first session of the congress was  exclusively devoted to the establishment  of a bureau.. The second session opened  under the. presidency of M. Beerneart,  Belgian Minister of State.   The congress  commenced its labors with a speech  by  M. Allard a Belgian bimetallist, nnd one  ofthe directors of the Nation.il Bank,  who explained at length the object of the !  congress, namely, to place   the question j  of bimetallism on a   practical   basis,  re- j  moved from auy que=tion of any school, j  "Herr Arendt, member of the Reich- i  6tag, supported the speech of M. Allard,'  aud the session was concluded by a!  speech by the French delegate Fougerolle.;  "How can Americans best promote the '  success of  the   bimetallist   cause?     As- ���������  snrdedly   by  rejecting all   propositions"'  that would lead to a depreciated currency  and that would "identify,  in  the public  mind, bimetallism witli  depreciated or  dishonest money." - j  LOCAL   NEWS.

THE PHANTOM  BALAKLAVA.  By. VKRK T.BUMT.  "You may talk about your orthodox  ghosts who haunt ancient castles, wailing  and groaning, and carrying flaming  lights from window to window tor apparently no earthly, or rather unearthly,  purpose save that of terrifying out or his  wits some poor hind bearing home a bewildered brain after staying too long with  ���������John Barleycorn' in the village Inn, but  for something that has forever baffled me  and made me often wonder whether I was  dreaming or  awake,   commend    me  to  - what I saw, or thought I saw, the night  before Balaklava. Oct. 26, 1854."  And my father,threw himself back la  his armchair before the fire in the smoking-room grate as he took a long whiff of  a newly lighted cigar aud gazed dreamily  Into the flames that were crackling up the  chimney.  r The subject of conversation had drifted  from the battlefields of yesterday, ia  Abyssinia and Zululand, to those of thirty  years before, when the tall, heavy forms  before us of my father and his old comrades . In arms, Sir Langley Feth.__.to__*  and Colonel Elmhurst, with their grey,  bristling mustaches, their still erect gait,  their unconsciously Imperative style and  their solemn and grave deportment, were  as light.. as. my own, Aubrey's, or Bob  Fetherstone's that night as we sat around  listening to the stories of the hot days  when our . fathers were men as  young as  - we.  '' Hand, me my memory, Aubrey,'' said  :n% father, pointing to the huge cavalry  sabre that .hung over the . mantelpiece���������  The sword that had waved over the now  ; Iron-gray head, that' then was chestnut,  as its owner with a shout of defiance bore  down.upon the ranks of the Muscovites,  on the wintry plains of the Crimea.  My father dr.w the sword from its scabbard and lovingly surveyed the glittering  blade. -  "Old 'never-failed-me'!" he said.   "Do  you see that dint in its edge, Lang?   Got  ..that crossing ��������� the Alma off the helmet of  -a Russian  oulrassler.   I sent   the blow  -.through steel and skull together.   There  ..is another!   Got that the  25th of October  '��������� from the commander of the Cossacks that  charged the left flank  of  the  ' heavies.'  ' He struok at ine, I parried, thore is the  mark."  "And then?" said Sir Langley.  "I swept  it  round   and  caught him  across the throat,"  answered  my father  abstractedly.   "I saw his body afterward  when it was turned over to his  relatives,  for he was a noble, a grand  duke  I  believe.   The same angry frown  was upon  his handsome features as just before my  steel entered  his  jugular.   And here is  another���������but there I   If I once, got started  . telling anecdotes of every experience tbat  old blade went through in   my'hands I  would stay talking until morning.   Put  lt up again,   Vic.   I  love  to   handle  it  whenever I settle down  to tell a story of  the old days.   It, as it were, inspires mt,  by bringing  back   the events of bygone  years to my. mind as if they but happened  yesterday."  Seeing, that we were all watching him  in anticipation he again took some whiffs  of his cigar and commenced:  "It was the night before  the . never-to-  be-forgotten  25th   of  October.   We were  close to the   Russian   lines,   our pickets  -7-eing--almost--within-halling-distance-of  .the enemy.  "I WM riding out to inspect the sentries  stationed along' the. Grodno road.   It was  - a wet, cold, night,, and I clasped my great  *" coat close . about. me, . and   spurred  my  . charger . along   the  muddy  road.  . As  1  ' reached the side of the valley .1 .drew him  in quickly as I hoard a distant rumble,  like the moving of some parks of heavy  ordnance at the extreme end. I listened. .  -All was "still again. - An occasional  .stray shot- from .the outposts, ta distant  challenge of a sentry, a light, here and  -there peering through thc murky mist  from the.doomed   city,   and   between   it  "and.us a .large, uneven "mass of . something indistinguishable' that marked out  tlie Kussiau lilies.  "I rode on. I arrived at the station of  thu sentry, and as I .did -mo some smart  firing broke out toward the rear. Our  pickets were evidently being driven in,  and I Bent the sentry back to hasten up  the supports.    He never returned.    I _nl>-  " seiiuently heard that he had gone on   with  - the re-enforcements he had been sent to  summon, and been captured.  "I stayed cursing his dolay for over  half an hour. When I-again ��������� heard the  same rumbling noise I looked up the valley. -All was dark, but the rumblo seemed to be advancing at terrific pace. As it  was coming from -our lines, ��������� I,thought it  might be a night attack. ' Although, how  cavalry could be of any service at such an  hour, on such a night," I failed to gee.  But it is the soldier's duty to. obey first,  and to form his opinion afterward,, and-  .1 eagerly awaited the oncoming ������ of the  force. .  . "A white streak appeared 200 feet  away, the noise crashed upon me with  full force, and in. an instant - I saw tho  charging ranks and the wild, eager forms  of tbe soldiers seated on their foaming,  galloping steeds. Forms, did.I say? Yes,  forms only! ,��������� Forms ,pale and - shadowy..  Horse and man alike woven, as it were,  out of the mist. On they came, icy  breezes rushing with them as they swept  by. Mr horse plunged and reared  frantically. To save myself from being  dismounted I sprang from his .back into  the snow,.aud, prancing and snorting, he  made off towards our lines, giving rise to  the subsequent rumor of my death.  "As I turned I saw the form of Louis  Nolan. He was sitting half round In his  saddle, hli sword banging from his wrist,  bis forage cap in his hand, which he was  waving exultingly. His face" was parti  ally turned from me toward the ranks,  but not a word jpas-cd the open mouth,  with ������l* ���������_���������*������������������ _rt������������a������-������U������a, tfce-aflkl  jould see a blase in the glistening eyes.  0a they came, hussars, lancers, dragoons,  with all the pomp and glory and magni-L*  'jeiioe of war mingled with the*mysterr ef  the world unknown. There' rode Major  Halket. His proud, handsome face set  firmly and unflinchingly, his sword  clinched in his hand, as lt was found  next day when they raised his body from  the blood-soaked soil. Then oame Lord  Fitzgibbon. You knew him, Lang, and  so did 1, since as children we played together in the green woods of Mount  Shannon.- He was pointing a shadowy  finger ahead, and his attitude wm as If  he wm calling to his hussars following  close behind.. As he dashed by he recognized me, and a sad, oh I what a sad  smile, flitted across the pallid face for an  instant as he tossed a last farewell to  me, In his careless, boyish style, and disappeared Into the mist. Next came  Pigott, the Lovelace of the Seventeenth.  The same serene light in those eyes that  had broken many a maiden's heart In the  drawing-rooms of Belgravla. And Hack-  ett���������Haukett of the Fifth-" the saint,"  as -we ot the First Royals used to call  him, that upright, God-fearing, greathearted man, whose name wm called on  the muster roll of heaven ere the sun set  next day. His eyes were now fixed on the  murky sky above, his faoe bore the calm,  assured, expectant look that Jerome must  have worn at the stake. He was galloping far in advance of his men, as If anxious to obtain his recompense, In a flash  he disappeared into the dark. ;  The gusts of icy winds accompanying  the rush of the phantoms were now declining in their force, tho rumbling  noise that had risen to the roar of a  temptest during their progress past was  now quieting down. As the last line of  charging horse passed from my sight I  saw a shadowy lieutenant of the Guards'  beside me. He pointed in the direction  whither they .had gone, a -scornful smile  was on his spectral' face. His hollow  voice echoed tauntingly in my ear:  " 'So Major Hurst, ofthe First Royals,  prefers discretion, to valor because he belongs to the heavy and not to the light  brigade!"  "I aimed a blow at - my traducer, but'  my hand only struck  into tho empty air.  "He laughed a mocking laugh, and  again pointing down tho valley said,  ?Go!'  "The warm nose of my horse, who had  returned, was pressing against iny hand.  ' " 'I will show you. that at least one of  the "heavies" can do as well as the'men  of the light brigade I' I cried, jumping  into the saddle and galloping off after thai  vanished cavalry. I felt liko one bereft  of his senses. I galloped on and on in  tho dark until I saw again the whito  streak approaching me in a contrary  direction and the rumbling eoholng in  the rear. A seoond and lt burst upon my  sight. But what a change! Horses,  riderless, terrified, wounded, maddened  with excitement. "Not' a single form of  soldier passed. Riderless horses! Riderless horses! Riderless horses! Here and  there opaque spots upon the shadowy  ���������addles, showing where human blood had  rushed down. I drew aside - from the apparent stampede - of ghostly - steeds. and'  waited. Then I saw another-white streak  approaching. It came nearer! It wm  upon me! The ' fur caps, the long riding  coats, the leggings, tho long lances, and,  above all, the superb horsemanship displayed told me that thoy were the Cossacks of the czar. But their faces were  as rigid as tbe dead. Instead of their  habitual yells, in victory or defeat, not  a sound - escaped from the tightly closed  lips. As I gazed-like a man walking in  his sleep I saw ono of the silent host, bearing full upon me, bis lance In rest, his  cold, dead eyes holding me transliseil so  that I could not move a limb. 1 folt' my  charger tremble beneath me, but he never  made an effort to break away. A moment more and a pang shot through my  heart. Then all seemed dark, save foT mi  occasional star shooting by. The stars  Increased In number; then more and  more, until they formed a disk like the  full moon, that again wm transfigured  Into a sun, whose intense light almost  blinded me.. I struggled to place my  hands over my eyes, and as I did so I  heard a voice above me say:  " 'He's coming ta My I but it wm a  close call.'  "I opened my eyes, I wm lying  swathed in blankets In the tent of one  of the boys of the Ninety-third. My limbs  and body were tingling from recent friction, and five bearded faces were peering  " an xlously- into - my -half-opened- ey ea���������������������������-  '' I recognized Heathcoate. Poor Heath-  coate that wm afterward killed at Delhi,  just'after being gazetted m colonel: for his  gallant corps.  " 'Why, old man,' he wid. .joyfully,  'you were near Saving the Russians a job!  I found you lying stiff and stark near tha  Grodno road, . as .our boys came along to  help the Twenty-sixth drive back the attack on the outposts. We brought you  here and have had a big job getting you  round. It's a wonder you are not minus  toes and fingers, but.there!s only the tip  of your ear frozen.'    .��������������� -   -  " 'And,' added my father, touching the  uneven surface of.his left ear, 'there is  the mark where the Russian frost bit  me,' but the vision I saw that night is, in  view of the events of the following' day,  far more indelibly Implanted In my  memory."

The odor Is .. unpleasant at  flrst, but a few minutes',: airing serves to  remedy that evil. The .oil takes up every  particle of dust and leaves' tho floor as  clean as when flrst .laid.

The movement   started  here    last  Saturday to inaugurate a Stock Exchange was a good one. Nelson  will not maintain her position as the  capital of Kootenay by pursuing a  policy of doing nothing. She has  active rivals and her central position  aud many advantages will not avail  her if she is not up and doing with the  rest.  It so happens that most of the stocks  in   which   the   public   are   dealing at  present are those of mines not in the  immediate   neighborhood   of   Nelson.  . Most of   them are at Trail Creek ami  while the brokers of Rosslund naturally  are doing a good business, their  rivals in Spokane are pulling hard to  get the   business   iuto   their ..hands.  Bus this condition of affairs will not  always    exist.       Already    the   most,  eagerly sought  of our mining shares  are  those   of  the   Silver King.   Tho  mines   of the Slocan,  hitherto principally  worked bv private parties are  giving signs' of appealing to the public  ,for funds in the guise of joint stock  companies.   All   round the Kootenay  Lake, from Goat River in the South, to  the Lardeau arid Duncan in the north  are mines.   The Slocan Luke in polific  in mineral.     The waters of the Pend  d'Oreille and Salmon are tinged with  gold.     Companies will be formed to  -work  properties in all these various  directions.     Where    is their centre?  At Nelsou.   And at Nelson will all the  principal dealing   in   their  shares be  done, that is if its inhabitants do not  now sit twaddling their thumbs and,  Jacob like, allow their birthright to be  snatched from  them.   Even now Nel-  ' son is recognized far and wide as the  capital   of  Kootenay.   But she must  .keep her  hold;      Her   dignities  and  honors are not yet so firmly set that  she can afford  to neglect bu.iuess and  goa-playing.    We say again therefore  that the movement of last Saturday  was an excellent one.   Its object was  ' tentative only.   There was no cut-and-  dried resolution put forward, but by  -the numerous attendance ic was clear  that the cause is a popular one.   The  question of the constitution of a Stock  Exchange is an important one.   Some  of these institutions   are  joint stock  companies,  the first.and foremost of  them all, the London Stock Exchange  is a simple cluby some of them are a  cross, between  the two.   The duty of  ���������the committee is-to-indout-the details  of all these various constitutions and  to report on them, possibly to recommend one or the other of them.  If the indication* that Kootenay at  present affords are realised in any considerable degree,  her wealth will far  outshine anything that has been ������o far  found either in Western Australia or  in South Africa.   Not only is her mineral area of enormous extent, but it  embraces almost every metal of value  " as   well, .as    coal   and ��������� otlier  .necessaries of reduction.     Theie," is ..every,  reason  for supposing that, Kootenay  , will    become    the    great.-. * mining  . country in the world.   This is blowing  we know, but the occasion dptninds it.  Looking to these  probabilities, it, follows that there will  be  a prodigious  - amount of sharedealing to be done.   A  glorious and ' prosperous future   that  must be carefully nursed is opening up.  Nelson intends to nurse it. ..,"''  ing director in,  and  one  of the chief  officials    of    the " British     Chartered  South African company, for the purpose of making large' bear sales.    The  seed having thus been _own for securing a good profit by the irnmediai- fall  and an  ultimate profit "by rebnying,  when the. raid was successful and a  rich slice of- the Transvaal had been  added to Clmrterlaiid, steps were taken  to carry out the conspiracy.   The tenor  of the 'cryptograms' shows that there  was a divergence of opinion between  the   Rhodeses  (Cecil Rhodes and his  brother   Col.    Francis"   Rhodes),- and  Alfred  Beit, ��������� representatives    among  the reformers, and that those not con-,  nected with the gang were responsible  for the' failure of the scheme.    These  telegrams  are  damning   alike tothe  Chartered Company and Mr. Rhodes.  It is clear that the raid was planned by  Cecil Rhodes, Alfred Beit, and the s.c-  retary;of the Chartered South African  company,    The telegram from Hammond   to    Rhodes    saying   "Cannot  nrrniige respective   interests without  Beit," shows that the aim was purely  for a stock exchange deal. ������ These miscreants,   therefore,   planning  d   raid,  which must have lead to the death of  many, and which was based on robbery  were actually disputing in regard to  their respective shares of the plunder.  The article then proceeds to severely  attack  Cecil Rhodes,   comparing him  with Jabez Balfour, "the first statesman to" apply to imperial politics the  methods of the shady com pan v pro-  motor."  Truth then concludes its article as  follows;."Had Cecil Rhodes remained  premier of Cape Colony. I am convinced that as. soon as it suited his  purposes he would have turned on us,  (the British government) and sought  to, cut the chain .which binds us to  South Africa."  We hear a good deal about Trail and,  Rossland nowadays and' there- i. no'  doubt that these, towns are worthy of:  every laudation they receive. Buti  NelRini; just saws wood and says nothing. Y"t she is probably us* prosperous- u,-,any.. other town in the interior  of B. C. She may not contain so many  inhabitants as Rossland nor do her lots  fetch so high a price. But the.propor:  tiori of her citizens making money is  equally large and the proportion of  those making a .living is possibly larger. The volume, of business done in  Nelson is certainly, always speaking  proportionaly, very much larger than  that of Tiail Creek.  CKinil'IC.VIK OF IMI���������KOI KtlKXT-.

The journals of Kootenay did good  service in directing the attention of  the merchants of British Columbia to  the large trade of this country which  was rinding its way to outside places,  such as Spokane and Winnipeg. Itis  now time that they looked after their  own interests.  - Their -is no doubt that the extensive  notice which is now directed to Kootenay was excited by her local newspapers, which taken as a whole are of  m higher class than the ordinary trade  of the district could support,' The  proprietors of these papers were able  to provide material of good quality  out of the profits they made by job  printing.- As long. as they, receive the  support of the public in this branch so  long will the journals .maintain their  high standard. But of late there has  been a tendency to send orders for  printing and. stationery out of the  country, even as far as to.eastern  Canada. This is hardly fair. Printing  can be done here just as cheaply and as  well as it can be obtained from distant  places. If it is not, then of course the  local offices have no right to expect it.  But from what we know of them, they  are run by enterprising men, who, if  their plant has been limited in the  past, are prepared to put in new machinery to cope with larger and more  elaborate work.  Mine owners and others should bear  this in mind and by assisting those  who help them will keep the money in  the country, and support a Pres������ of a  style and quality worthy of so rich a  country as the Kootenay.  Although the  whole district  is increasing with rapid strides,  and  the  amount of work offering is very much  larger than  it has ever been  before,  people are coming in  a little : faster  than   jobs   can   be   found  for   them.  With mistaken kindness people in the  east and elsewhere who may not be  doing well are urged and   helped   to  hurry to   the   new   mining   fields   of  British   Columbia,      Already    whole  families are pouring into the country,  of these the men are often quite unfit  for the life and they and their families  are sometimes exposed to want during  the time that intervenes between their  arrival   and   the  finding of  suitable  employment.     Mining is not suitable  for unskilled hands.     It requires the  services of  men  not only well experienced,in the technicalities ofthe trade  but of great personal .strength.   The  hours are   long,   the   work   is heavy.  Every day more hands are required,  and as the snow  retires to the lofty  summits the prospectors will move out  and  relieve the glut in the labor market,   But at present men are certainly  aniving   faster    than   work   can   be  supplied.      Intending    settlers    with  slender purses would do well to bear  these facts in mind.  Notice of Application  for Crown Grant.  fflAKK NOTICE that T. J.

England has been mnde a  party  to   a   filibustering    expedition  against her  will.      Truth,  tha great  Radical weekly in  London  gives full  vent to these  ideas.     In   n powerful  article it   asserts   that the raid had a  double motive.   First it wns intended  ' to annex the rich  mining districts of  the Transvaal co the Chant-red Com-  panys property, and secondly it was to  enable those behind the scenps to make  money   out  ofthe  transaction mi tin*  Stock  Exchange.     The sh-u-*-s-  -<l*! he-  company were bound to fall us -n-in ������?  the  news   got   abroad,    giving   ihese  'bears' their opportunity of speculating  ���������for.the fall, and enabling them to buy  in largely when the stock shall have  reached a low figure.  The article proceeds:    "It is obvious  that the   first news of the raid would  cause a fall in shares.     I am prepared  ���������to prove that a syndicate w_us formed ,        .  just prior to the raid, including a lead- j would-be invaluable.  NOTES.  An ingenious person has invented  an asbestos boot. It is said to be damp  proof and to protect the sole of the  foot from cold in winter and from the  heat of sun baked pavements in summer. If some person would invent an  asbestos covering which would protect  "souls" froiri'"heatrit"iniglit"have_a"'"re'ady"  sale iu view of possible future contingencies.  There seems to an impression that  it is the duty of a stock exchange to  guarantee the stocks and shares quoted on its lists. This is so to a certain  degree, but nothing like so far as the  public supposes. We notice according  to the Spokesman Review that a member of the proposed Exchange in  Spokane declares it to ba the intention  of that body to give what practically  amounts to an expert guarantee of the  value of a mine. This of course is impossible, apart from the expense of  obtaining an honest expert opinion  of every company that bubbles up to  the surface. A guarantee to be any good  must be worth something and the maintenance of one worth relying on would  cost millions. All that an exchange  can do is to lay down certain rules and  refuse to list companies that do not  comply with them. These rules generally, require that a certain proportion  of the nominal capital of a company  shall be actually paid.up in cash. This  is usually the first and foremost of all  the rules and would exclude nearly  every company in the Province. Another most salutary rule should be  that the company actually owns the  property it proposes to work. That  would crowd out a few. This latter  rule will be a difficult one. to draw.  A few hard and fast rules of this kind  are all that a stock exchange can do.  It cannot enter into tbe question of  whether the property is likely to be a  profitable one or not.  1 ���������HOFI'SSIOSAL VARUS.  fi*  EO. A. B. HALL, M. D., D. I>. S..

Three of these institutions  "are situated in it. The congregations  who attend these churches in the  evening do so at considerable risk, as  they have to cross the 'venerable old  log bridge across the creek. This  doubtless was a serviceable structure  in its time and ' would be good enough  for a .cow track' in a,back country  ranch today, but it is not good enough  for the people who go to the Silica  street i.hiirces or for the residents who  dwell in that suburban thoroughfare.  The London Mining Journal is devoting a good deal of space, just now  to British Columbia. A series of  letters by Mr. Pellew-Harvey is appearing and in a recent number was an  article by Mr. Moncklon. In. the latter we notice one or two slight inaccuracies. - For instance it says that  there is a 250 ton smelter plant at Trail  and a 125 ton plant at Rossland.
