Although the new route is shorter, it  is not any steeper and it will make  a line, sleigh roail for the winter.  The now |wagon road goes right  through Lhe townsite of Predricton.  There is quite a small town up on  Toad Mountain now, with every Kind  of house from mere cabins up to  .[Hur. residences. There cannot be less  than two hundred people there.  Every preparation is being made at  the mine for considerable extension of  operations. New machinery is ordered  and the foundations for it are.being  prepared. Both the diamond drills  are now employed probing the riches  of the Iroquois.  Water is becoming very scarce at  Forty Nine Creek and work will soon  have to be suspended on the Hydra-lie  Company's ground. In the meantime  lhe tributers are working hard to get  all the ground lhey can through while  the water lasts.  NEWS OF  THE   WORLD.  SLOCAN.

Silt.���������L was somewhat surprised to  see in the leader column of your last  Satniday's issue a clipping from the  Philadelphia Ledger on the silver  question which you apparently endorse for you describe it us a "lucid  explanation."  ���������T-he-stiUeuients-and-iirgiuiients-of-  the gold-bug press in "the U. S. at  present especially, had better be examined before being taken as gospel  for you must be' well enough versed in  the tactics ofthe newspaper editor to  know that the policy of their paper is  their creed to be upheld ab any cost by  any means. Tliat when argument  fails they usually- endeavor by misleading statements to pull the wool  over the eyes of the electorate, the  majority of whom do not take the  trouble, to think for themselves, but  prefer to gel. their ideas ready made  out of their pet. paper whieh they believe a great deal better than their  bible.  Now Sir, the ledger wishes us lo  believe that under the free coinage of  silver at Hi to J, it would be possible  to buy silver at $'���������'.!)I for lit ounces and  have the same coined into $18.00. giving ST per cent, prolit,. I can take no  other meaning out of the paragraph  for it .certainly can't be (lone now.  This is a false idea. . As soon as the  bill is passed making silver a legal  tender for all liabilities at the ratio of  10 to 1, and the mints of the U. S. are  opened to the fiee coinage of all silver  ottered, just so soon will tin'* value of  silver rise uniformly all over ihe world  and it will he impossible to buy silver  at $9.91 for 10 ounces, because no one  will sell at that rate when he can take  it to the mint and have it cointjd to so  much better advantage. Then'again  it,talks of "flooding the country with  silver coins," "unsound money," this  is another misleading argument, lo  deceive.the unwary.  If silver be money, in the trm* sense  (not merely token money asat pieseni)  how can a nation have too inucii uf il.  Ls not the prosperity of a people  measured by its balance of trade,  which is simply the value of it's exports over it's imports, or in three  words the balance of money coining  in over money going out,' the greater  the balance the more prosperity do  thepeople enjoy. Now why don't "these  people who prate about, Hooding the  country, with money, preach on the  wiles of over-exportation? The ingenuity they are displaying in the  present contest shows that* they are  einineetly. qualified for the task.  j_      Yours,' for  "Fhee Silver and Plenty of it."

A portion of Spokane was under  water last week through the overflowing of Shawnee Run Creek. A deluge  of rain fell for many hours. The St.  Mary's, St. Josr-ph, and Mauinee rivers  were also over theii banks.  An application has been made in the  Imperial P.irliment for the release of the  Irish political piisouevs on the 60th mini-  versarv of Her Magesty's accessiou' to  the throne, 20th June, U897. Mr. Balfour replying to the application, said that  the time had not yet arrived to consider  what should be done on that occasion.  Al Windsor. Ontario, there is a  rebellion against toll gates. Some  eighteen or twenty farmers in the  vicinity rose up and burned three of  the obnoxious gates together with the  houses of the toll keepers. Without  any attempt at disguise, they broke in  the doors, removed the furniture and  then fired the building. This offence  is punishable with imprisonment for  life.  Cardinal Taschereau's condition has  changed for the worse. Excessive  weakness renders his condition alarming. His Emminence is suliering from  the ailments common to old age; his  strength fails him entirelv. Doctors  term his malady "decrepitude." It  has been an open secret for some time  that he was suffering from both mental and physical decay. His private  physicans say that the remaining days  of the cardinal-archbishop are numbered.  THE TRANSVAAL RAIDERS.  REMENYI.  In large towns people pay five dollars  to hear the great tiddler. Here in Nelson  reserved seats can be had for a dollar and  a half, and the music will be just as good  as thnt played in great cities. In addition to Remenyi himself there nre three  other performers, aud although they are  uot known to us personally, the newspaper reports of their ability show that  they are uo mean artists." Nelson owes a  debt of gratitude to the Oddfellows for  stepping up and finding the necessary  guarantee to induce Remenyi to play  here and. it is to be hoped that the  townspeople will stand by them and fill  up a bumper house next Saturday  evening.  SOUTH AFRICA.  Heavy fighting still continues in the  neighborhood of Buluwayo. Nicholson's  patrol, 300 strong, was checked on Sunday last in a narrow gorge at the north ot  Natoppo hills, leading to Laugu's stronghold. The enemy, in great strength, occupied au impregnable position,(mid tbey  were fully equipped with rifles aud ammunition. The straightuess of their  shooting was remarkable.  The Cape boys (with fNicholson's patrol) cleared the neighboring heights of  the enemy, injuring 20 of the rebels, but  a gallant attempt to force a passage was  checked-by_a._heayy_.fire -Jrom the^caves  studding ��������� the mountain, delivered at  close range.  \. Nicholson' lost five troopers and two  Cape boys in a few minutes. He therefore withdrew his forces aud returned to  camp.  A, meetingj has been held at Cape  Town, iu favor of the reinstatement of  Cecil Rhodes as Chairman of the British  Chartered South African Co.   .  CANADIANS AT BISLEY.  ��������� From a cable received, seven Canadians  shot for the final stakes iu the Queen's  Cup," three succeeding in getting tho  necessary 182 marks at 500 and GOO yards.  They are: Hayhurst, 181; Mitchell,  18.; Munro, 182.

Trial and Sentence of Dr. Jameson and  his  Officers.  Dr, Jumeson, Major Sir Johu Willough-  by, Col. R. Grey, Col.H.F. White, Major  R. White and Henry F. Coventry wero arraigned beforo Lord Chief JuslieeRussell,  Baron Pollock and Mr. Justice Hawkins.  The charge against defendants was violation of the neutral ty laws by invading  the territory of the South African repnb  lie. Most of the leading members ot the  bar of Great Brittain have been engaged  either for the prosecution, or defence.  Long before the hour arrived for the beginning of the trial every nook nnd corner  iu the court room allotted to spectators  wns thronged. There were many ladies  among the audience. Sir Edward Clarke,  for the defendants, made a motion to  quash the indictment ou the ground that  it was indefinite in its allegations; it had  not been proved that the Foreign Enlistment act had been proclaimed where the  offence is alleged to have luken place.  Sir Richard Webster, Q. C, Attorney  General, replied on behalf of the Government. When the Attorney-General closed  his argument the court adjourned.  On the reassembly of the court nest  daj, the Lord Chief Justice announced  that he over-ruled the motion of Sir Edward Clarke, Q. C, counsel for the  defendants, to quash the indictment. The  defendants, Dr. Jameson, Maj. Sir Johu  Willonghby, Col. R. Grey, Col. H. F.  White. Major R. White und Henry F.  Coventry then entered pleas of uot guilty.  The Attorney-General, Sir Richard Webster, Q: C-V opened the case for the  prosecution.  After a trial of seven days the Lord  Chief Justice began summiug up. Hie  remarks were distinctly hostile to the  defendants. He began by pointing out  that none of the facts in tbe case again si  the prisoners hud been contested, and  said there was no doubt in regard to  their having taken part in or abetting the  proceedings at Pithuria nnd Mafekiug,  where invading forces were mustered  preparatory to entering the Transvaal.  It was entirely unimportant, In the opin-  of Lord Russell, whether the foreign  enlistment act be proclaimed at the  places named iu 1892. There was uo  doubt the expedition was of a military  character, and whether it was aimed to  overthrow the Transvaal government o:  force a change of laws in the republic, it  was equally au expedition against n  friendly state.  The attendance at the trial of Dr. Jim-  eson and hia associates wus never so  large as today, and the greatest interest  was manifested in the proceedings. The  opening part of Lord Russell's summiug  up, however, and his two hour's recapitulation of the evidence, was uninteiest-  ing, and even Dr. Jameson and the other  defendants dozed nt times.  The jury after haviug retired at about  4:30, returned at about 5:24 and the defendants were hastily summoned.to their  places. The judges came iu five minutes  later and the jurymeu gave nn nffimia-  tive answer tc all the questions which  had been propounded to them by tin-  chief justice; but they added a rider to  the effect that the disturbances at Johannesburg were provocative.  Lord Russell throughout, summed up  most adversley to the rniders nnd concluded with submitting to the jury a series  of questions difficult to answer any way  but affirmatively. After an hour's absence the jury returned aud answered all  the questions in the affirmative. Thereupon the Chi.f Justice said that this fiad-  iug amounted to a verdict of guilty aud  he directed the jury to' so find.  Lord Russell then directed that their  answers were equivalent to a verdict of  -giiiltY.--The-foremau.s'aid_that-they_were_  uot unanimous upou that point, bnt his  lordship (repeated his explanation and  then the jury retired together for about  30 minutes and rendered a verdict of  guilty. Jameson and his co-defendants  were apparently unmoved.  His lordship then passed sentence upon the prisoners. There were absolutely  no demonstrations in the court room  when the prisoners were taken awtiy, or  outside, when they were escorted to the  jail.  Dr. Jameson was sentenced to 15  months' imprisonment without labor;  Major John Willonghby to 10 months,  Major White to 7 months. Captaiu  Henry F. Coventry, Colouel B. Grey aud  Colonel H. F. White to five months each.  The sentences are generally approved ot  though they are more serious for the  military prisouers than for the others i.s  it is considered that they will be cashiered  as well.  A NEW  RAILWAY.  ROCK IN r.LACI..  The. total exports from Kootenay  for July amounted to S203.311. The  rest of the returns were not completed  in time for this issue.  The Coast papers contain au account  of a new line of railway which is designed  partly to connect Victoria with Kootenay  | and further to b. a new transcontinental  | route. It is to be noticed that the coast  terminus "of this liue is, according to  sume journals is Vancouver while .theis  carry it on to Victoria.  However haying started out on its eastward journey it reaches Ladner ou the  Fraser and passes along the south bank  of the river through the fine agricultural  districts of Delta, Surrey, Langley, Mats-  qni, Sumas and Chilliwaek. Faom this  point, it is alleged that a suitable pass  has beeu found by which this liue can be  led to the Nicola Valley and thence  through"the Okanagan, Boundary Creek  and Kettle River country to the' Columbia River.  Ar far as we are concerned in Kootenay  we may say of railroads, aa of smelters,  the more the merrier, as we do not have  to pay for them.' But if there is to be  much more laud allotted as a bonus to  the builders of the- liue, on which the  "Free" miner is not free to locate his  claims, without putting up security for_  compensation, then it would seem advisable to adopt some other method of reimbursing the promoters. The obvious  straightforward course would be that  these gentlemen should look to the pro-  tits from working tlieir line, for their  reward. But this source of income does  not appear to be held in high esteem by  projectors of railways in the west.  The Mining and Scientific Press of  San Francisco makes the following  remarks on the, recent decision of lhe  Chief Justice in. this matter.  Rook in place did mean a. quarter of  actnturyago substantially what the  Chief Justice decides il does now, ��������� but  mineralized country rock was not  known then. Its discovery and the  knowledge we have of its formation  justify the abandonment of the old  delintl ions as not tit ting the condit ions.  In some knowable cases they will fail.  Tbey should be cheerfully abandoned  with the abandonment of the erroneous interpretation of nature that they  defined. In place of the old definit ions  iinike new ones.* R. L. Dunn, in a  paper entitled "The Genesis of Placer  Gold.i' published in this paper in O -  lober, 1894, made this distinction between lode deposits and placers���������a lode  (rock in place), he says is a mineral  bearing deposit in which the presence  of the mineral is due to the operation  of chemical forces alone, and is the  place of primary deposit; and a placer  is a mineral-bearing deposit in which  the presence of the mineral is due to  the operation of the mechanical forces  of nature acting on the lode deposits  defined above, and in reference to them  secondary." This definition has tbe  essential merit of a simplicity that  makes the argument of any suppos-  able case impossible. The evidences of  origin in a very few known eases are  so obscure as to cause differences of  opinion'even between mining experts.  Its use would tend to clarify mining  law and its interpretation. The latter  at present seems to be guided by the  opinions of witnesses, who, no matter  how expert in mining, are, as a rule,  the reverse in knowledge of the meaning of words.  . Chief Justice Davie based his decision ou the opinion of, one of. the  witnesses, testifying as to what he  thought was the meaning of the term  "rock in place." Accepting the definition suggested, the witness would ouly  have had to testify iu answer to the  question: "Was the presence ofthe  mineral due to chemical forces alone,  or had natural mechanical force-  removed it from its original place of  deposit?"  RAILWAYS AND MINERALS.  The Privy Council has just given judge-  meut iu  the case  betweeu  tue Govern  meut aud the E. & N. Railway Co., us to  the ownership ot the precious metals.  Many of the claims in the Alberui dis  t-rict lie within the land granted to the  Duusmuirs for buildiug tue Esqu'iinnlt Hi.  Nauaimo Railway. The grant included  minerals, biit no special mention wiih  made of the precious metals. The Duns-  mmrs contended that gold and .ilwi  were included iu their grant and thai  free miners could only prospect for aud  miue the same with their permission.  The Supreme Court here however decided against the Railway Compauy, by  whom the case was carried to tbe J ndicial  Committee of .the Privy Council bj  whom the decision of the Supremo Court  has beeu upheld.   ,  Thi- settles the question as the Privy  Couucil. is the nighest aud ultimate  court of appeal in the realm.  GOVERNMENT LAND SALE.  Messrs. Charles A. Waterman & Co.,  have received instructions from theChiei  Commissioner of Lands and Woiks io  oiler for sale by auctiou a long list, of  Government lots iu the townsite ot Nelson. The sale will take place about the.  end of August, of which full  paiticnlars  will-be given ,i,he--upset-pi,ice..on_e.v.e.rj:.  lot has beeu fixed nt $100.  THE  GOVERNMENT   AND   THE  DRAINS.  Dr.' LaBau has had a letter from the  Government informing him that the  nuisance arisiug from che maiu sewer  down'Ward Creek gulch shall be attended to at once. To meet the cost of this  the Government proposes to assess the  adjoiuiug property.  MINING NOTES.  The output of the Rand for June was  103,010 ounces, n falling off of 1,30*8  ounces from last month and 7.3(H) less  than lhe corresponding month of 1 tsi>.">.  It will be a revelation to most'Canadians to learn that we have a very rich  gold-producing country iu Nova Scotia.  According to M.r. IJell, who isaiecog-  nized authority ou mining matters, some  six or seven companies are doing remarkably well. Among them are the Richards  aud Brooktield Niining, Association, the  New Edgertou aud tlie Golden Lode.  Unfortunately, from a Canadian standpoint; all these mines aro owned- by  American capital, the British aud Canadian investor, as usual, standing aside  until the Americans had proved that gold  existed iu paying quantities, just "as they  did until recently in the Kootenny  -ouutry.

I was glad  onough when tho houso camo in sight nt,  last���������a long white building, for all tlio  world like three or four bungalows plunked together. Thoro was an attempt at a  bit of garden round about it, and what  the people would havo culled a park beyond that; but it was not- until yon woro  inside the house that the means of tho  lady who kept, it were displayed; and  that they wore'11 rat-class 1 never had a  doubt. Itwas a mansion lit for an Kng-  ll.li iio-1-itiiui; and many's the iinlilc-  mnn'K place I'vo beon lnio that wasn't a  patuli upon it. As for Sir Nicolas, he  was beside himself from tlio start, and  when 1 took him up his hot water for  dinner, ho could do nothing but tulk  ttbout lt.  "It's boautiful quarters we've found,  entirely," said he, "and protty people.  I don't suppose yo'vti much to say about  the money here. Faith, I'm boginning  to wish I wns cho general myself. There's  20,000 goes with tho girl, the count  tells me, and tho rovorsion of tho place.  It's many qualities in a wifo I could dis-  penso with at a price liko that"  "So she's to marry a goneral, sir?"  asked L  "No one else." said ho, "bo* Gen.

Truth, she's a very  sweet little woman���������and then there's the  money."  "In the wedding soon,   sir?"   I  asked.

They dance to-morrow when the general comes from Novgorod-lucky devil tliut he is."  After this, ono'did not want to be very  clever to learn how the land lay with  him.. I believe ho was in love with  Marya Fouzatov from the start; and it's  no wonder if ho was. A daintier little  thing never stepped out of a drawing-  room than thc girl I saw go iuto dinner  that night. It was as good as a play to  watch him and the count running after  her like lapdogs, now ono, now tho other  d.uicing attendance on her, nnd pluming  himself that his was tho winning hand.  Her sweetheart, you'must know, was still  away at Novgorod, whoro liis regiment  was, und tho other two did tlieir best to  console lior. Not that sho wanted much  of that sort of thing, for a wickeder littlo  flirt never lived, as Sir Nicolas Stoolo  may have found out by this time. 'But  thoy weren't bchiudhund in giving her  the lead, as the Irishman would say; and  the way the throe of thom went it was a  thing to remember.  This, I must toll you, was on the flrst  night of our arrival at Mme. Fouzatov's  house. They had put mo in a* good room  In the servants' quarters, but I was out  In tho gardons all. dinner time, and littlo  went on that I did not know about. Not  that I found my company dull, for the  "placo "was���������chock_"full "of"servants, and7  though I didn't understand u word of  the   lingo, I made myself at   home liko  one o'clock.'There's'1!! powor of language  in the squeeze of a pretty woman's hand,  and a kiss on a dark staircase is worth a  mint of,.''parlez-vous" any day. I found  myself all the bettor with the "frying-  pans" for want of their, chatter, and  twenty-four hours hadn't passed beforo I  was best man with the lot of them.  Nevertheless, my chief business was to  ��������� koop my cye on Nicky, aud all tho pretty  housemaids in Russia would not have  held mo from that.  It wus this last consideration which  od mo on the night after our arrival to  offer my help to the others who woro  waiting and serving at tho grand bnll to  bo kIvcii to the geiferul and the bridegroom  that was to be,. I had determined that I  would seo " all that was to bo scon, and  when I hud dressed Sir Nicolas I found"  it useful to hang about the corridors and  the entrance to tho baflrooin. Jn this  way 1 had a good view of the old genoral  himself when ho arrived about eight  o'clock���������a flue, noble looking old fellow,  who carried his years like feathers, and  had kindness and courage written all  over his splendid face. I thought ut the  time that Miss *-Murya "didn't exactly  burst into team-When sho saw him, and  this 1 will say.now,* that sho, and sho  alone, was responsible for all that happened .that night aud afterwards. She  gavo lii'm tho cold shoulder cfroni' the  start of it; she danced throe times running with Count Fedor and-twice with'  Sir Nicolas. I don't believe sho spoke  Ave words to her intended from tho time  ho arrived until the doors of tho dining-  room were thrown open for supper. You  could see with half an eyo that a storin  was brewing, and burst it did with a  vengeance not ton minutes .after midnight had struck.  Up-' to this time the general had kept  his temper liko a man. In all that great  ball-room, sparkling with lights aud  jewels and wonderful gowns and dazzling  uniforms, there was no finer follow than  he. "While swaggering guards iii snow-  white tunics clustered around him, and  Cossacks aired their splendid coats, and  little whipper-snappers danced about all  sprinkled over with gold aud jewels, ho  was tho man of the evening. LTprighr, a  good slx-foet in his shoes; wearing a dark  green uniform that fitted his figure like a  glove; there was -always a kindly smile  u'uout his eyes, ami u manliness in his  bearing whicli did you good to soo. Not  once in that long evening did he betray  himself by look or gesture. Even when  'the girl he was to marry passed him on  ���������iiottor kuu-'i ana and g*T������ hlta an* of  her impudent nods, he merely bowed-, to  her and went on smiling. Only when  suppor-time came did ho push himself  forward at all���������and then it was to ofTor  her his arm that he might tako hor into  the dining-room.  Now, in the sceuo that followed,  whether the girl acted as sho did because  she disliked the man, or whether it was  pure deviltry on "hor pare, I havo never  beon able to convince mysolf. All I can  say is that whon tlio genoral stepped up  to Alarya and olTorod hor his arm, she  turned away from him to tho count; and  so thc two mon woro face to faco almost  at the doorway whore I stood.  ��������� I write that tlioy woro faco to fuce, tlio  old man still smiling; tho young one hot  with uiiKcr and with excitement. But it  it, was the count who spoko first���������und In  French, as all the folks in tho ball-room  did that night.  |'l am sorry, general," said he. bowing  with u snoorlng politeness which mudo  you mad to see, "hut mademoiselle is  plodged to mo for supper. "  "Indeed," said tho other, "and by  what right, monsieur?"  "Oh, that is a quostlon I should not  discuss horo."  "Nor I," repliod tho general, speaking  ow, and bonding dowu towards him.  In the same moment I saw tho old fellow  tlick the count on the right cheek with  his glovo. Five minutes later his carriage was taking him  buck to Novgorod.  'iiiore is no nood for mo to tell you all  that followed this bitter littlo scene. It  was just as though you had oponed the  windows of tho ball-room and lot in the  falling snow. While hot more than ten  people had witnessed tho mishap, the  story of it was round tho houso beforo  half an hour had passed. It brote up tbe  ball like a death might have done. I  saw Mine. Pouzatov herself weeping  hysterically as sho went to her room.  Her daughter still carried on defiantly  with the count; but itwas plain that she  was scared and half sorry. The others  made haste to call their carriages; or  formed little groups to discuss the thing  without gesture. The servants crept about  liko mutes at a funeral. Wo all know  tha**, tho night could end but iu one way.  \bo men must light.  PAItT   IL  _t was broad daylight that morning beforo any of us got to bed. As for myself I don't bolieve I took my clothes ofif.  Not that I cared a penny pieco whether  the general shot tho count or tho count  shot tho general; but there was so much  excitement and talk and running here  and there that sleep was far from my  eyos. And so it was with my master. I  wont to his bedroom at eight o'clock and  found him still in his uniform, sitting  at his writing table and drinking coffee.  Though he spoke careless enough, you  could see that ho was shaking to his  finger tips with excitement; and aftor I  heard him out, I knew well whore he  came into it.  "Hildebrand," said he, "I'm to drivo  to Novgorod in an hour. The count has  asked mo to act for him."  "Thon they aro to moot sir?"  said L  "Was any otlier course possible?" cried  ho. '"Tis not with bank clerks or bishops that we're dealing, but with gentlemen that havo gentlemen's means for  their quarrels."  "But the genoral is his superior officer.  Tho count can't fight with him, sir-at  least, that's the talk below."  "Which is nonsense, yo may tell them  from me. "Tis a caso whore we'll havo to  got permission from tho authorities, and  that will not bo refused. Suro, the lady is  likely to bo looking for a husband whon  tho week is gono. "  "What   about  the count in   that   case. ,  sir?"  Ho   looked   at  mo  slyly, as he  could I  6omotinies. I  "I doubt, that sho'li marry the count,"  said he, and that, was all.

ADDRESS  .he Miner Printing * Publishing Co  NELSON.    B.C.  A NEW MINING COUNTRY.  South Aiisl.fl.li.il is rut hera misnomer.  Thc .colriny stretches from the shores  of the groat Australian Bight in llu*  south clear away to the tropical sens-  that wash J he Malay Archipelago. Tin*  extreme length of tho colony is little  short of 2000 mill's. The northern  part of this t.'.ritnry is very litth'  known. Its climate is torrid, water is  scarce. Fever, blacks, and every  imaginable kind of insect and leplile  pests abound. There, in this almost  inaccessible land, like tlie princess of  the fairy tale, immured in a castle  with unbreakable walls and guarded  by dragons and all the spells of magicians, is fgold. If tho reports are true  it is the richest country yet discovered.  About a dozen West Australian Financial Companies, including the \V.  A. Joint Stock Trust and the W. A.  Gold Fields have formed a gigantic-  syndicate to opeiate in the country.  The public is not asked to subscribe a  farthing. All the necessary capital has  been privately subscribed many times  over. If the story of tlie wealth of  the northern territory is fabulous, thr  prospectus of tho company is Cyclopean. The estimates of futuie yields  are not gathered from assay tests of a  few pounds or even hundredweights,  but the results of tests of thousands  of tons are given, In speaking of one  group of mines reference is made in  the crushing of 5000 tons. The result  of this by the way was between 0 and  T.ounces.1 Another group sends a mill  test of (5000 tons, while from one of the  smaller ones, only ten* tons resulted in  producing 3000 ounces, ft is scarcely  too much to say that no company has  every been brought out with such  strong backing.  ROOTS NAYS RISE..  The Spokesman Review writing of  British Columbia mines, says that,  "aside from South Africa there has  been no mining section in the world  which has come so quickly to tlie  front." With all due deference to our  daily cont.einporaiy we submit that  as far as time is concerned, the fame  of Kootenay has become known very  much more rapidly than that of the  Rand. _ It is practically but three  years ago that some of the prospects  of Kootenay   bi'CaiTfeTTnim^s-aml~slTip7  ..ping began, yet here she is today  talked of all overthe world and written about in all the leading journals.  It was fully ten years before South  Africa reached the same position.  The matter is . certainly nothing to  brag about, though it may well form  subject for congratulation, hor is it  to be supposed that the success of a  goldlield is to be measured by its notoriety. The reason.is not far to seek.  Kootenay started in close proximity  to the United States and within easy  reach of several transcontinental railways. The 'mines of the Rand were  in a foreign and hostile country,  almost* ...unknown, hundreds of miles  from  a  coast   which  itself  was   only  .reached ufter an ocean voyage of at  least three weeks,  . __.

P."R. is showing a liberal spirit in the  matter of rates and before long we  may expect that the merchants and  financiers of the east will become personally acquainted with the great El  Dorado of the west of which hitherto  they have only heard.  Balfour in the last pai liu'iiieut but  one, and which went to wreck with  the conservative government, Tt  practically settles the Irish quest ion  It alleviates all the agrarian causes of  trouble arid really gives the Irishman  more local self government than that  possessed by his brothers in Great  Britain. But it does not give the  Irish agitator a billet for life with a  good salary and nothing to do which  is what those gentlemen want.  A committee appointed by'*'a muss  meeting in Vancouver has drawn up  a memorial to the Government asking  that the tax on Chinese be raised from  $50 to SjiiVX) a head. This laller is the  sum charged in the Australian colonies for permitting a Chinaman to  land and it has proved eflieaeious  there in preventing the rush of Mongolians that, threatened at one time to  be a serious trouble. If Chinamen  would stick to gardening, laundry and  domestic work, we could always find  room for a few and some reservation  might be made in diminishing the tax  io those who continued to work in this  line, but thore can scarcely be two  opinions about the advantage of keeping out the general rush.  One" of the lastaets of the late Government was to create a very large  number uf Queen's Counsel. On the  list were some to whom the honor is  due, but there were many young men  who have hardly been in the profession as yet long enough to win the  distinction, though they give eveiy  promise of arriving at the silk some  dny. There were others who weie, in  the public opinion not at all lit for the  honour. The first two classes of barristers very much dislike to be in the  Sfiine "batch" as these hitter, and it  would seem therefore wise to cancel  the whole list. The Government however hesitates to do so lest it should be  accused of political spite, as nearly all  the proposed Q. C's were supporters of  the Conservative party.  rl'<-| I.S.SIONAI,   4AKIIS.  /".1.EO.   A.  It.   II ALU    PHVSK'TAN  VST*  -ii.'H.on,   Ulii.o   C. & K.  I'uililini;.   up  s.aii--.

The. London and British  Columbia Goldfields is one of them  with respect to which the aimounce-  ��������� cut is mad-��������� that "the first batch of  leiiurs of allot ment and regret (?) have  ii'i-n posted." We understand the  postboy was not overladen with his  luirden, and our sympathy is with the  allottees and not with him. The shares  wc think, will shortly be bought at a  heavy discount. AVe have much the  same opinion of "Pioneer Development and Exploration Co. of British  Columbia," which actually quotes the  prices of some excellent West Australian companies, as though that had  any bearing on the comyany in question. Investors should wait for something better than these two doubtful  ventures.  At a prohibition convention recently  held in Toronto, it was decided to take  a plebiscite of the Dominion on the  question as to whether the sale, of  liquor is to be permitted or not. Now  thisisaform of obtainingtheopinion of  the public, which is foreign to our con-  sLilution and for thc prober manage-  ment of which no provisions exist. A  plebiscite is a vote of (he whole people  yen, or nay, upon a specified subject,  and if the whole of the pecple would  vote, no better method could be adopted of getting at the national mind.  But everyone will not vote. By far  the greater number of the people,-  knowing that nothing will come of it,  are indifferent. It therefore becomes  simply a vote of the faddists on the  particular question iit issue, It is  likely therefore, that if-a plebiscite is  taken the astouiuiing result wil lhe arrived at that Canada has "forsaken sack.''  With this, we British Columbians  desire to have nothing to do: We  Iiave no intention whatever of giving  up" whiskey, nor do we cure to mix ourselves up with nil the fads that exist  in the older provinces. ' We sincerely  trust that all rubbish of this kind may  stop short of the Rockies.  ESTATE OF R. E. LEMON.  rpiIE ASSIGNEE will sell by Tender at  L Nelson, 13.

Mi-KniT*.  It is fully expected that Mr. Balfour's  Irish Land bill will become law. It is  possible that it may receive some mauling in the Lords, but it will come out  all right. The. bill is probably much  the same as the cne introduced by Mr.  The Socialist congress    in   London  came J to  an untimely end.    Class dis-"  Unctions are very* finely drawn among  these gentry aud the Socialists refused  with great propriety, to have anything  to do  with  anarchists.    But many of  these  latter  had   travelled   fiom   far  countries  to  attend  the  meeting and  were  exceedingly. perturbeel at being  refused admittance.    They vowed that  if you  were to upset the social fabric,  it made little difference whether y������ii  toppled  it over  front  ways   or back-  ways.     But   the    Socialists   thought  otherwise and as  they were the most  numerous,      their     ideas    prevailed.  | Being denied access to the main body  ! of the hall, the. anarchists boughtseats  ' in the gallery reserved for spectators  i and from that coign of vantage took a  j hand  in the proceedings.    Things be-  \ came very lively and nearly everyone  spoke  at once."   The   chairman   was  provided ^vvith   a   huge   railway   bell  with    which   he   added   to   the   din.  Eventually the meeting was adjourned  the chairman being understood to rule  a motion  passed for that purpose.

Tlie National Matte Smelter.
A practical and simple method of mutling
sulphide ores, such as nickel, copper, gold and
silver ores. In localities where lead ores and
fuels arc scarce and almost, unattainable, our
pyritic, water jacketed Matte Smelter has
been recognized with highly satisfactory results, and has been thoroughly tested on various pyritic, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 2 to 80 tons per day. It is thc most
practical, cheapest nnd simplest method of
gold and silver ore matting' and concentrating
that is known to-day.
ll requires no extraordinary skill, no lead
ores, no fluxing material, and no fuel of any
kind for the smelter after it is started. Thc
sulphur in the ore is its natural fuel only, and
sits cost has no comparison with uny other process of concentrating.
We are prepared to furnish any size or capacity plant complete to substantial mining
people, set it up and furnish our men to run it
for them on easy payments. Prices and specifications furnished with references and testimonials on application.
