A large quantity of fine ore is being  takeu from the Centre Star. " It comes  from the North cro98 cut which has tapped the War Eagle vein.  John Moynahan bas resigned the su-  perintendeucy ot the Le Roi and has  joined a svndicate which has purchased  the Iron Colt  The ore body-in-the Mayflower has  widened out toc three feet, and ' assays iu  gold, silver and copper over ������100. a ton.  The Mugwnmp Company has awarded  a contract to Knight & Stone, agents for  a Chicago Machiuery Company, to drill a  hole 700 feet deep on the lead.  A tunnel has been run in about 100 ft.  a claim near the O. K. Two ledges have  been cut carrying fiee gold.  A body of chalco pyrite five feet wide  between clean "smooth wails has been  struck on the' Cliff.-"-The ore assays 15  per cent.'in copper and with a good gold  value.  The amount ot ore received for treatment by tbe British Columbia Smelting  and Refining Company, at Trail during  the month of August, 1896, was 2,396  tons.  The Heather Bell Group, on Murphy  Creek has been bonded to an Eastern  Canadian Syndicate for $25,0.0. This  group consists of four claims, the Heather Belle, Livingstone, Gladstone, and  Ramping Lion. At fifteen feet the shaft  was in solid ore assaying as high as 852.  in gold. .        J-  P. A. O'Farrell has been in Toronto  with some purpose, says tDe Rosslander.  His glowing accounts of the Iron Horse  property has induced a syndicate of business men iu that city to "send out an  expert to exuniiue the mine and if his  report^is-favorable-4he-property-will-be  purchased at the handsome figure of  $150,000. Itis noticeable that even Mr.  O'Farrell could not refrain from 'putting  up' the price to the Tdrontouiaus.* While  he was asking $.150,000 in Toronto the  property could have been bought here  for $135,000. Toronto must be just'as  much of a gold mine to certain gentlemen from Rossland and Spokane as Rossland is to the Toronto investor.  THE WAR EAGLE DEAL.  From the last number of the Mining  Journal to hand we learn that a company has been registered in London  under the title of the Rossland War  Eagle Gold Mining Co. Ld. The capital is ������550,000 in ������1 shares. Its object  is to adopt und carry into effect an  agreement made on May 0th bet ween  D. O. Cot bin of (he first part and J; II.  Rothchild for and on behalf of the  company of the second part, for the  acquisition by purchase or otherwise  of certain lands eslates mining and  other properties in Canada.  From private sources we learn that  Mr. J. II. Rothchild has no connection with the great firm of  Rothschild. In fact it will be seen that  the -name is spelt dift'bremly. Mr.  Rothchild paid the registration fee  amounting to ������000, which may be  taken us an earnest of his intention to  proceed in the matter."'  On last Saturdays"boat Mr, Earnest  Grant Govan*"bf London accompanied  by Mr. Fredeiick North went to Rossland. Mr. Govan is said to be the  managing director of the Gold Exploration and Development Co. of British  Columbia and also of the War Eagle  Mining Co. of London.--* Mr. North is  discrihed as formerly mining engineer  for the Cape and Natal Governments.  He may possibly be the Mr. North a  well known colliery engineer who  went out some time ago to the Cape to  report on the coal fields of Natal.  Patsy Clarke, interviewed in -Spokane,  according to tho Rosslaader^ denied that  there was any truth in the rumor that  the War Eagle had been sold. The bond  expired on August 1st, and anything  stated since that regarding the sale has  been unanthenticated rumor. The report of the sale originated from a tele  gram sent by Frank Loring from Toronto  to F. E. Snodgrass of Spokane, stating  that the WarEagli deal had be������n consummated. Where or how Mr. Loring got  his information is not known, but it does  not appear to have been correct  Tlie First Division Gives'the Govern-  - ment a Working Majority of  ._  Thiiy-Foui*.  Ottawa, Sept. 9���������At a meeting of the  agriculture committee today Thomas  Bain was appointed chairman; M. Sutherland, Liberal whip, was appointed chairman ot the railways nnd canris committee, and James Lister was appointed to  preside over the bankiug aud commerce.  The minister of marine aud fisheries  has declined to permit cohpe fishiug to.  commence on the 15th inst instead of on  the25tb.     '    .*" '���������:"..  Mr. Morrison waited on Hon. Mr.Tarte  with Hon. Col. Baker and disoussed  Fraser river matters. A meeting of Bri  tish Columbia members was held and a  piogram was adopted for presentation to  the ' Governor-in-council, embodying".  British Columbian overtures.  Mr. Oliver introduced yesterday,a bill  to incorporate the Hudson Bay and Pacific Railway Company which^was read a  first time.   ;  In, the House yesterday Sir Charles  Tapper asked if any piogress had been  made in regard to the appointment of a  minister of the interior. ' -.  Hon. Mr.- Laurier.���������I will be able.to  give an answer to the lion, gentleman on  Thursday.  The "first division of the session' took  place at 11 o'clock last night on Mr. Fosters', motion censuring the government  for its abuse of the power to issue Gover-"  uor-general's warrants'. The division wbb  witnessed by crowded galleries. When  Sir Charles Tupper rose lo vote he was  loudly cheered by the opposition. The"  Liberals paid a similar compliment to  their leader. The government majority  on the vote was 34. Thirty-two members'  were paired, anun usually large number,  and' six members were absent, * three  Conservatives and three Liberals.  Mr. Bostock has introduced a bill to  incorporate the Columbia Telephone &  Telegraph Co.   It was read a first time.  B. C. IN LONDON. rV  There is no longer any doubt thnt  the fume of our mines has.reached  London, and occupies a considerable-  portion ot. public attention then*.  The Ottawa correspondent of the"  London Times has a two column  article on Kootenay. In the  Miniug Journal and other papers  there are many columns devoted to  Biitish Columbia and specially to  Kootenay. Many of these articles are  written, by. people who either have no  personal knowledge o'f'the country,or  whose acquaintance with it is merely  cursory. . Hence one sees many inaccuracies which ought not to appear.  For instance in a communication we  read that the Revelstoke smelter had  been washed away by the ri-w. This  may be true by and by but the buildings are not gone yet. A more glaring  inaccuracy in the same account is the  omission to mention the smelters at  Nelson, Trail and Pilot Bay which  betweeu them have treated n**-less  than fifty thousand tons of oie this  year.  To .British Columbians who have  the true welfare of their country at  heart it is distressing to see the large  numbers of companies being formed  eithei without any definite object or  to acquire some property .which is  scarcely commensurate "with its dis-  cription in the prospectus. The London correspondent of the Engineering  .ind Mining "Journal of New*\ ork says:-  "Jus>t as there appears to be a favorable' opening for British Columbian  propositions, it is a pity that irresponsible promoters should come over from  the Dominion oiferiiig absurd propositions-here. A party from Toronto is  at present in London hawking round  shares in 'The Big Tree Mining Co,' a  company formed either under Dominion or Provincial laws. - He is offering  the stock in blocks of not less than 250  at the rate of one shilling for tach .$1  sharer The mine is somewhere in the  Trail Creek district^ and the officers of  the company are Rufus H. Pope;  president; A. G. Labeie. vice-president  and J. P. Greaves, secretary treasurer.  This person is scattering circulars  very widely hut is uot bringing his  schemes before the notice of the press.  Perhaps some of your readers can give  further"* information about the Big  Tree Mining Company."  For our own'part we may say that  we have never heard of such a company, and the gentlemen who are its*  officers are equally unknown to us. If  thc company owns "a claim, and that  claim has any showing of ore on it at  all, it-i_ *very strange* that it is not  mentioned in any oof the Rossland  papers, as they are not given to hiding  the light under a bushel.  The Bank of England has raised the  rate ot discount one half to two nud n  half. This is the first change for two  years and a half. It is believed that the  raise is intended to check impending  gold exports. Consols dropped iu consequence to, 111% a decline ot % from  the closing price of the previous day.  - Tho Prince of Wales horse Persimmon  whioh won the Derby has also won the  St. Leger.. The Duke of Westminster's  Labrador and Painpion finished second  and third respectively. The race was  won in a canter by a length and a halt.  ." On Thursday last a violent oyolone  swept over Paris doing a great deal of  damage. - Only ' one person was killed  but many , were injured some being  blown bodily into the Seine. The Palais  de Justice was partly unroofed and all  the windows blown in.  ��������� The recent .convention of Irishmen  held at Dublin which was to bind up all  parties together and heal all differences,  .does not appear"to havo had the desired  effect. Mr. John Dillon was hooted and  mobbed in the streets. Mr. John Redmond addressing the National League at  Dublin denounced the convention as n  sham. Not a single Parnellite was there  while Henley's followers were absent. He  objected to the American delegates  dictating aL policy to Irishmen iu Ireland.  He denounced T. P. O'Connor as an interested journalistic supporter . of the"  English liberals. He applauded the  work recently done in Ireland by the  Conservative Government and contrasted  it with that done under the Liberals.  The most horrible holocaust with the  greatest loss of life that has ever occurred  in this part of the state occurred at midnight of Tuesday, last, at Detroit,  ���������when Yore's opera house took , fiie  and in the fight'to save the buildings and  other blocks adjoining eleven firemen,  one a volunteer, met their fate at -one  time, death being -' instantaneous with  five of them. Six lived only a few hours  in awful agony and five others met with  severe injuries. A high - wind prevailed  and it caused the walls to fall outward,  and adjoining building were saved only  with the greatest efforts. A large |quan-  tity "of-, stage scenery was .destroyed.  There was no insurance. Thousands  witnessed* the conflagration and with  difficulty the crowds were kept out of  dangers way. Tbe work of clearing up  the streets was continued throughout  the day. ���������  THE SILVER SLOUAN.  CHURCH NOTICES.  Sunday 13th September 1896.  * Church of Exg&axd. Harvest  Thanksgiving.

Gaudaur ot  Toronto, tbe champion oarsman ot  America, 'after a most disappointing  race today, over the four-mile championship course from Putney to Mortlake, defeated James H. Stansbury of  Austraulia, -who recently .beat "Wag"  Harding for the championship' of the  world.     "' "*  The race today was for the world's'  championship, $2500 aud the Sportsman's cup. The weather was as dismal  as could be.   There was a foul, a protest  From Silver Mining in B. C, By E. D.  -    Ingall*  (London Mining Journal.)  The bulk ot the claims of tbe dist'ric-  have been staked out ou veins .cutting  rocks ot the black slate series with theii  associated calcareous bands.   They show  the sume variations in  charucter,  being  soft aud highly graphitic at places, and  harder and more compact at other., gen  entity  from the proximity of intrusive-  igneous rocks, aud are.thus often higlil.x  altered, showing chinstolite, etc.    Thesi  intrusive rocks are found, throughout.tin  district,   showing  as " dykes of variotn-  thicknesses. ��������� They   are light iu color,  wiih a preponderance of the acidic min  oral constituents, orllioclase felspar anel  quartz constituting, us a" rule, the bulk  of  the substance. '  This association of  ��������� f rocks in geneial occupy the southern  side of the valley of Kaslo river, aud extend some miles to the south, where they  are said to abut ou a large area of grau-*  ite.   '  ��������� .       .  On the north side of the valley of the  same river, the schistose series of rocks  is largely developed, being in many  places serpeutinous. - In - this series of  rooks a number of veins have been located. They show as' fissures varyiug  in thickness from a few inches to -2 or 3  feet; carrying the ore, which is galena, in  solid ribs. ' These ore ribs are generally  imbedded in a soft ochreous gangue,  sometimeSjOf a pasty consistency. The  thickness of the ribs varies from a few  inches up to foot or two. .Occasionally  lhe walls of the fissure are -lined .with  quartz crystals, and tho enclosiug rock  is rusted some few*inches in.from the  walls of tlie vein. Veins of solid quartz  also occur occasionally, but those seen  carried very little mineral. The veins  in this schistose series of rocks are apt to  be free from some of the irregularities occasion ally shown by those* in the black  shale series. The veins in tbe shale series  present similar features to those already"  described as occurring in the same series  in thc Illeeillewaet district. Whilst they  frequently ruu for long distances with  the formation, they are also constantly  found cutting across it. . -  Where a vein is found cutting across  or in the proximity of one of the calcur  eous bands previously mentioued, tuey  are apt to show some interesting features,  widening out or forming large pockets  of ore in connection with the vein. Some  of tbe big shows of the district have been  of this nature, and have proved very' disappointing, their pocketty nature being  shown on development. When, however, the parent vein has been located, it  has been found to be persistent, which  will be found to be true for most oftho fissures proper. When they'cutthe slates,'  the veins at places 0 show considerable  width of brecciated vein stone, angular  pieces of the enclosiug rock-.being cemented together by" quartx and othOr  gangue and ore minerals. The commonest occurence, however^ is to find veins  of from a few inches to 2 or 3 .feet iu  width, carrying galenu iu solid ribs, nuggets, and boulders in a rusty ochreous  and sometimes clayey filling.  The galena varies in grain, from  large  LOCAL  NEWS.  which  was  disregaided,   and Gaudaur roabe down to that with a fine steely frac-  won by 20 lengths in 23:01. Both men  were very nervous and fidgety while at  the stake boats marking the starting line.  They broke repeatedly, and there were 12  false starts.      - - -  , When the oarsmen shot under Hammersmith bridge the nose of the Australian's shell was almost touching the stern  of Gaudaur's boat, and about two furlongs above the bridgf* there was a slight  touch. Stansbury promptly held up his  hand and claimed foul, but as both boats  were in tbe middle of the river the referee  refused to .admit the foul. Stansbury,  who=Thad-*-8topped-rowiug-iu-order���������to  claim the foul, was now a badly beaten  mau, and Gaudaur went right away and  won as he pleased.  The betting was 5 to 2 on Stansbury at  the start, and 3 to 1 ou Gaudaur after a  third of a mile.had been rowed.  SUPREME COURT.  *"    Civil Sittings.  (Before Mr. Justice McCreight.)  .     . MCOOKE E-.-AIi.  VS.  BAILEY.  This action was commenced on Thursday aud is likely to last some time. The  plaintiffs Messrs. A. AV. McCune, Scctt  McDonald nnd Hong own a |half  share in the Payue mine, Mr, S. S. Bailey the defendant owns the other half.  Tlie miue has hitherto been worked by  Mr. Builey. . The plaintiffs have become  dissatisfied with his management aud  now ask for un order, of the court for the  sale of the miue, also for production of  accounts by defendant, and they also  seek to make defendant responsible for  all the expenses inclined in working thc  mine on the ground that the operations  have been improperly conducted,  Mr. E. V.  Bodwell appeared  for  for  the  the  plaintiffs and Mr. W. J. Taylor  defendant.' -,     .  Mr. Bodwell obtained an order for all  books, statements of account, smelter returns and other" documents- relating to  the mine and called Mr. Sbott McDonald  to show why it was better to sell the  mine than to partition it between the  parties. Mr. McDonald said that a fair  partition could not be made until a miue  was very largely developed. In fact "no  one could say with certainty 'what a miue  contained until it was worked out.  . Mr. Taylor then commenced to cros-i-  examine the witaesse aud continued nil  day. ^Yeste.rday Mr. Scott MacDonald  was under examination all day, aud  today the case is proceeding as we go to  press. -  Thirty five saloon keepers in Vancouver are being prosecuted for illegal sale  of liquor.  There is great disappointment among  the Chinese at Victoria at tbe fact that  Li Hung Chang will not visit that city.  The great Celestial travelling over tl e  C.P.R. in a special car will arrive ia  Vancouver today and will proceed  at once on board the s.s. Empress of  China en route for the Orient. H.M.S.  Comus will attend and fire the salute due  to Li's rank and position.  ture, as shown by the specimens. It is  sometimes enriched by tbe presence of  ruby silver and the richer- silver minerals scattered through it. What is  known as "carbonate" ore occurs with  the galena, but this is not really carbonate of lead, us one might suppose, but is  the ocheous gangue -.material in which  the silver occurs disseminated in the metallic or native condition and iu the cou-  dition"of the richer silver minerals with,  doubtless, some carbonate of lead. The  whole, probably, resnlts from the decomposition of the gangue and of the  Bilvjetbearing^gah^iwjof.Uie^veiii^^^th^  minerals are associated witli"the g_ilei_a  in places and in varying quantities. Of  these, zinc blende is the most prominent,  iron pyrites occuriug in fair quautity,  and other metalic miuerals being only  occasional. Tbe, pure galena'iu solid ribs  neems to affect moro'-.particularly the  narrower veins, cutting the shales, whereas the big developments in the calcareous  parts carry generolly a large pioportion  ot ziuc blende which lessens their .value,  this mineral being objected to* by the  smelters, when its percentage is huge.  Auother class of the vehiB found ehow  various rich arsenical and antimonial  silver minerals in, a gauguo composed  principally"of quartz.  Development work on these veins hns,  in a number of cases, opened up most  promising exposures of ore. In one case  a tunnel was seen on ft_.new prospect  where, for all its length of about 75 feet,  it was estimated that the grouud broken  had been from 50 to GO per cent, puro  galena, assaying 125 ouuec. to the ton.  Or again, r.t another place, a prospect pit  was seen showing a 2 foot rib ot absolutely pure steel galena with ruby silver,  the ore assaying 860 ounces to the ton.  When ouo sees such exposures of ore as  these at a number of places iu thc di-trict  as the result ot merely preliminary development work by the prospectors themselves, and taking into account the many  other veius fouud in the district, having  good, if not quite so extensive, shows of  ore, one cannot help feeling that the district has a very hopeful future before it.  These ores are rich in silver, as shown by  the results of some 50 assays made in the  chemical branch of the Geological Survey  of specimens of galena collected by myself which run from 50 jounces to 3'j0  ounces the majority from the black shale  series in the Slocan district averaging,  perhaps 100 to 125 ounces to the ton.  Some specimens of so-called "carbonate"  gave little or no silver, whilst two' specimens of this class of ore from different  claims "gave 700 ounces and 1630 ounces  respectively.

(Continued from third page.)  swarming with people, who can produce nothing pf the kind themselves,  but who want, and are willing and able  to pay for it. With a small exception  the railway would - find - customers  along its entire.rout p. The fanners of  the Northwest line it on both sides  right up to the lloukies. In the  limiiiitiiins themselves it, reaches the  great coal fields whose produce is to  much needed iu our smelters. Thence  a short run brings it to the East  Kootenay district, already a large  exporter of . rnini-ral, then again  through a country which bears good  promises of future wealth, it .0011  reaches West Kootenay of which I here  i'l no longer any doubt. 0  There is reason to believe that the  present Liberal Government have it in  their mind to build this line. We  know that our member is favorable to  it and will, do his best to urge on its  construction. There should, he little  or no difficulty in its way. Any  opposition that might come from the  conservatives could only tie factious  and half-hearted, as almost the lasl  gasp of that moribund parry' was a  proposal to make a handsome loan  to the C.P.R. to construct it. It would  seem almost as if the scheme was good  enough to go straight to thc London  .market for the necessary funds, or if  it still wants support it should not  require much Government guarantee  to make it go. It is certain that it  cannot require the grunting of great  concessions nor powers of monopoly to  ensure its success. It is so good a  thing that if the Government cannot  get, it done without such aid, let it  construct the line itself.  A natural.corollary to the Crows  Nest Pass line, which reaches ils  terminus at Nelsou, is the extension of  the preseul line from Rohson to Rosslaud. Already.the Spokane Falls &  Northern railway is building its branch  under the name of the Red Mountain  railway from Northport to Trail Creek.  This line will draw off all the rich  traffic of the great gold fields to the  United States, and afford a ready  access for tho fanners of Washington  to supply the miners of British Columbia with their produce. The  Dominion Government has granted  concessions to the Red Mountain railway. . How much more should it aim  at helping its own people to reap the  advantages of their country's wealth.  BOMBARDIER   BEETLE.  Supplied by Nature With a Strang- Weapon of Protection.  Of creatures inhabiting the land the  bombnrdior beetle certainly has the queerest means of defense. When' pursued by  an enemy he discharges an extremely  volatile fluid which is secreted by special  glands and which has the curious property of turning into a cloud of light bluish smoke. Some say that this smoke  blinds the pursuer for a time, others say  that it only confuses him. ' If the first  discharge is insufficient tho bombardier  can repeat it as many as 20 times, but  he usually .escapes before carrying the  bombardment to this length.  Of sea creatures, Jihe globe fish, or  puffer, uses the most extraordinary  means for protecting himself ngalust or  escaping from his foe. In a quiescent  stato its body is somewhat thick, and  flattened on the uuder sido. As such, ho.,  would mako a nice moutful for a goort-  sizod enoray, but when ho finds that he  is about to be selzod he pumps water  into himself until ho swells out into a  globe from 12 to 15 inches in diameter,  and at the same time erects a multitude  of short, sharp spikes, and so becomes a  very awkward mouthful. Sometimes,  even in .his state, ho gets within the  jaws of some largo enemy, and then he  suddenly collapses to his original size  and swims out, leaving the jaws to oloie  on nothing.���������Philadelphia Press.  Jfot a Word.  The preclousness of silence receives a  new Illustration in a court room incident reported by the Helena Independent.  Four -yeurs ago, more or less, two men  were convicted of horso-stealing in the  District Court of Ghoteau County. They  desorved a sentence of. ten years' imprisonment, but Judge Du Boso, for some  reason, let them off with three years.  Then the worse man of the two, supposing, no doubt,- tbat the sentence onoe  pronounced was past revision, addressed  the court.  "I just want to say," he told Judge  Du Bose, "that whon I get out you will  be tho flrst man I'll come here to kill."  . ."Oh, well," said the judge, "in that  case I'll make it ten years. Then you  won't trouble me so soon."  Having said this, he turned to the  other man.  "Is there anything you would like to  say?" he asked.  "Not a hlessed word," answered the  prisoner.  The man who said nothing is now out  of prison, while his partner is still behind the bars.  \  * BOTES.-  . The opening up of the great count 1 y  which lies to the north of Kootenay  Lake would be very materially aided  by,the improvement of Ihe navigation  ot the Lardo River between Howser or  Upper Kootenay Lake arid Kootenay  Lake itself. The removal of snags  and log-jambs'would enable steamers  from the big lake to carry supplies far  into the mining country and to bring  hack ore from, claims that at present  have no facilities ^for shipment. The  river is. little more than ten miles in  length; and clearing it would <>p--n up  some.twenty live or thirty miles to  navigation. We believe that Mr.  Bostock charged himself with bi-ing-  - ing this matter tn,the attention ofthe  ������������������Government,  and though we do not  for.a moment suppose* that he has  forgotten, it, we would urge him to  hasteti the opportunity of bringing it  011.   - The news of a remarkable accident  ~iii"^"Eo"ndbn"7has���������iecently~rpacb.d"usr  At the "Novelty Theatre' a play was  being enacted iu the" final scene of  which, the villain is stabbed and falls  . to ,the ground and dies. By some  terrible mischance the actor who was  to administer the fatal blow actually  did stab the other, and I he poor man  without knowing thatjhe wassei iously  hurt went on acting his own death  before the audience ahd actually  expired in fifteen minutes from lhe  time the blow.was struck.  It is possibly fortunate for McGregor  who was* recently tried for stabbing a  man at Rossland, tbat the details of  - this case had not reached here then.  It .will be remembered that the case  turned largely on the medical evidence,  aiid the accused owed his acquittal to  the medical opinion that a man could  not ruu some two or three hundred feet  after receiving such a wound as he had.  The wound as described by Dr. Keller  was a wound in the chest made by a  knife*. It had penetrated possibly one  a_id a half inch. It had penetrated the  right ventricle of the heart and had  punctured but mit - perforated the  posterior wall.    At the inquest held  ''on-the unfortunate actor who lived  for fifteen minutes after the blow,  acted his part and said he was not  much 'hurt, the medical evidence  showed that the wound was made by  a long dagger* with a blade six inches  in length'.   The  right lung had been  . ppnetraled from front to back and the  main  artery of   the   heart  was   also  penetrated.    .Had  this news arrived  earlier' it is   possible   that   the   case  ;  v ould have had a different result.  In 1836 complete sets of our Government weights and measures .were delivered to tbe Governor of each state, for  the use of tha states respectively.  Seeing by Wire.  Will it ever bo possible to enable the*  persons who speak with each other by  telephone to see one another' nt the same  .time, an "iu a glass, darkly," perhaps,  but still "face to face?'*- Will it ever be  feasible for a man in London to seo  opcra-in La Scala, or tho . Falls of Niagara, or the Feast of Lanterns, in Canton, without stirring from home? It in  a captivating idea, and, although we can  not pronounce with certainty, there is a  good deal to be said in favor of the possibility of its realization.  To begin with,-it_'"i_;known, that light-  is merely a form of energy, or, as the  late Prof. Tyndall would call it,a "mode  of motion." It is, in fact, ii wave-like  motion in the exquisite medium thcS we  call'the luminiferous ether,, which is understood to' permeate������������������ all bpdi:;s. Xii"  waves resemble those set up in water  when a stone is dropped into it; that i.*  to say, they are transverse rays, tho particles of water rising and falling alternately across the liue on which the waves  travel. In this respect light dill'ors from  sound,- in which the particles of air conveying . the sound vibrate ' to and fro  along the course of propagation of tho  sound. Now it has been found of late  years that waves similar to those of light  in all,,-but size can be set up in the  luminiferous ��������� ether by oscillatory dis-  oharges of electricity, and there js growing  evidence to show that-some well-known  effects of electricity are the result of  wave motions in the , ether of the same  kind.as those .of light. __.

It was from none of,thesc, but it con-  I-lined a circular, a letter and business'  card from a mining engineer at Montreal. The letter and circular purported to refer to a proposed establishment of a permanent exhibition of  minerals at Montreal, but it contained  no reference to the authority of tiny  Government, or board of trade or  other public body. It was addressed  apparently from the office of the  advettiser aud signed by him alono. lt  was simply nothing more or less than  a cheap advertisement. The following  sentence from the circular is a good  sample of its impudence and the style  of its English, "They are organizing  in Montreal, now, the mining exchange  but they want to see the exhibition of  minerals ..established first, so they will  get reliable informations about mine**.  Then, with the exhibition and the  mining exchange, there will be created  in Montreal, a market, where all the  miners and investors could meet."  Now there is no objection whatever  to a mining agent sending out.an  advertising circular. As printers aiid  publishers we say the more the  merrier, but we most decidedly enter  our protest against the abuse of tbe  priveleges of a member of parliament  in franking correspondence of this  kind. If this Montreal advertiser is to  have his circulars sent free, then we  claim a similar advantage for all of  our brokers and advertisers here. \\e  beg to call Mr, Bostock's attention to  this matter which we think too objectionable to Hnd favor with the present  Government.  rKOVESSlOKAL  CAUD ���������  C-1 EO..

Plicha_|ai|  113  THE QUEEN'S REIGN.  On the_ 23rd of this month Her  Majesty The Queen will have  reigned longer than" any English  monarch, .but she has intimated,  through the Home Secretary her wish  that-any celebration of the event  should be postponed until she   shall  .have completed the sixtieth year of her  reign, in June next, if she is spared  until Lhen.  There is little wonder that the above  proclamation . was necessary. So  beloved is the Sovereign throughout  her broad dominions that her loyal  subjects are everywhere anxious to  emphasize the feelings they cherish  towards her by .some visible exhibition  of their sentiments. At the" saint.  time the desire of the Queen to postpone the.-celebration is but natural.  To hold a festival this month is but. as.  it were to celebrate a rivalry, successful by but one day, over her grandfather. But to commemorate the  accomplishment of a reign of 00 years  is an intelligent|ide_,'and by ten years  more reasonable than the jubilee.  ' Her Majesty's reign has meant''  much to the British Empire. Though  petty wars scarce ever cease from  troubling, it is forty years since a  great European war levied its tale oi*  misery, taxes, and blood. The glorious constitution undei which we live*  so happily and freely,- has quietly  merged without the slightest trouble  into a monarchical democracy, a condition Jn which we seem to have combined the greatest blessings of both  forms of society. The colonies of tho  Empire have grown into nations,  possibly not yet quite strong enough  _to.stand-alone,_but-a������t~o.diug_ro-ali'-of-  Britain's sons, a vast field for their  energies and labors, with sufficient  individual national character to enable  them to feel the necessary patriotism  for the home of their adoption. There  is almost as much difference between  . our mode of living now and that of  our fathers when Victoria first,  stepped on the throne as there was  between that period and the reign of  say,"good Queen* Bess. The use of  steam on railways and steamships  began |practically with the Queen's  reign. In 1830 Professor Wheatstone  constructed   his   first    apparatus   by  , which 30 signals were sent through a  wire four miles long, and thus laid tho  foundation -. of "i the complicated uses  which, electricity has in our lives  today. The spread of popular education, the cheapening of literature and  the enormous stridesin various bran-'  cues of civilisation are no less worthy  oi" mention. To iis a matter of some  moment is the practical discovery and  civilization of the country in which  we live, which was at the tiiiie of the  Queen's Accession little better known  than the moon. ..   .  AN OBfECTIONABLE_ PRACTICE.   '  Among the letters   which reached  this office on Tuesday last was one in  an    imposing   envelope    bearing  the  . Jofflcial stamped crest of the House of  - Commons of Canada.     Moreover   to  add. to its official appearance it came  postage free and was ftanked by the  initials  ������*H. G. C.; M.P."   AVe are not  among those who have an extensive  correspondence    with    members    of  parliament and other notabilities and  ' the letter therefore excited our curiosity as to whom it could be from and  what it could contain.   Our surprise  therefore  was great, when upon opening it we-found that it was not from  Mr. Laurier,- asking our opinion on  the Manitoba school question, which  -was  a, relief.   Nor   was   it  from our  own member Mr. Bostock announcing'  the   immediate   construction of   the  Crow's Nest Pass Railway,  which was  a disappointment   Nor waa  it from  THE CROWS NEST PASS RAILWAY.  It is to be hoped that the reported  decision of the Dominion Government  to make no railway concessions during  the present sitting is the creation of  the brain of a conservative reporter.  Or else that the Liberal Cabinet sees  its way to push on the construction of  the Crows Nest Puss railway without  giving any coiicc.sious to anyone.  The latter course Would be infinitely  preferable, but" it seems almost too  much like discounting the inillenium  to be within the reach of Canadian  mortals. Australian mortals have got  it, and there is really no reason why  we should not have il too.  Hitherto the construction of .railways in Canada has largely been the  result of the foresight of acute business  in-n, who could see their way to wealth  and fortune through 6he medium of  monopoly conferring concessions, huge  land grants, and great possibilities in  townsite speculations. The interests  of the populations to be effected by the  railway and those of the public who  were invited to become shareholders  in it, required the magnifying glass of  an unblushing prospectus to become  visible at all. In the case of the. Crows  Nest Pass line, the interests of one of  Canada's most thriving populations  loudly demands its construction. It is  scarcely necessary to repeat the story of  the lise and tapid-grdwth of the mines  of Kootenay. Their fame is not  limited to1 Canada but is heard of, now  ail the world over. Nevertheless il  may be as well to remind eastern  readers that our. exports areaheady  increasing by leaps and bounds. On  everyside, from the Slocan, from Nelson, from Trail Creek, as the mines  ���������a_e~develop.d*1*-^tbeir���������resources-nre"  found to increase. The introduction  of new machinery to aid in the  enlargement of the output is therefore  warranted. .Only recently Lhe Slocan  Star and the Washington have added  large .concentrators to their plant, the  Noble Five' and Ruecau are about to  build tramways and concentrators.  At Nelson machinery is even now  being fitted Jit the Silver King to feed  ils enlarged smelting plant with 400 or  500 tons a day. At Trail Creek the  papers are full of the accounts of new  air compressor drills and other aids  to mining. The list there is too long  to quote, but it is well known. One  has not to rely on the promises of new  finds, mere pi os-pocts giving a hoped*  future yield, but on every hand there  are Ihe solid fads of well developed  and proved mines putting themselves  in shape to deal with ore they have in  sight.  Iu a few months, nay'in a few weeks,  the miues of Rossland will be in a  position to produce at the very least  1000 tons a day. Nelson, Ainsworth  and the Slocan will within'a short  time contribute a couple of thousand  more. The value of such an output  will amount to something between  thirty and forty million dollars a year.  And what"is the bond that ab pretent  confines and curtails this wonderful  growth? AVhat Is the universal complaint of all mining men of the restrict^  tion . of their operations? Lack, ot*  transport. The present means of  communication, good as they are, and  better than any young mining country  ever yet had, are totally inadequate to  deal with it. The growth" of the  country the increase to its population,  its revenue beaiing capacity both ^o  Province and Dominion are all circumscribed by railway facilities.  No one disputes the advisibility of  the proposed route. It cannot be said  that "it would lead nowhere or that it  would serve- no useful purpose, It  iwould lead  most fertile spots, a country producing  foodstuffs of the  best,   to a  district  (Continued on second page.)
