The new steamer, the International,  constructed nt Kaslo by the International  Navigation & Trading Company gave a  moat successful and satisfactory excursion  to the people of "Nelson last Tuesday.  The boat, left the dock at 10 n. m. and  after a trip out iuto the lake just beyond  Balfour, safely landed its passengers ,at  the starting point shortly after 1 o'clock  p. na.  Over oue hundred men, women and  ohildreu made the trip and after inspecting lhe boat to their hearts content,..so -  tied down in the cabin to enjoy tbe iide.  All of them were loud iu tlieir praise of  the boat and ils fittings but the. majority  were "true to their first love," thc Kokanee. The cabin of the International is  large aud exceedingly comfortable. It  is heated by steam and easy chairs and  lounges are nnmero,u's. * The windows are  very large aud ailbrd magnificent views  along oue of-the most .iuterestiug trips  ever taken by a traveler. The.dining  parlor is a!so..a commodious room, nioelx  furnished*nu'j.l dining the' trip spine excellent coffee was served to the guests by  the gentlemanly steward, Mr. John Guru.  The forward cabin, or smoking room is  most comfortable and in here may be,  found the cup that cheers. Capt. Hayward ^presided in the pilot house and  during the trip had mauy visitors. On  the lower deck Eugiueer J. H. Gray, was  at the thiottle and explained the working  of the engines under his control. They  differ .somewhat from those of the  "Kokanee.and for new machinery worked'  very smoothly. Ou this deck a number  of carpenters were completing thc work  of laying the floor and paid little or no  attention to the crowds which pressed.by  them.  There was much speculation as to the  speed of the boat as compared with that  of the Kokauae aud the'general impression was that they would be pretty  evenly matched.- The trip from the  Nelson wharf to Balfour loik'one hour  for tbe purpose of authorizing the sale ot*  the property..

Some speculation lakes plocc in mining stocks locally ��������� but the number so  venturing their money is comparatively  small and prices rule riitherlower than  last month. The feature has been an  advance in those of .the older companies  which incorporated for $500,000.

The visit of the Salvation Army to  Nelson this week excited considerable  iuterest. Tho meetings were fairly well  attended and much substantial aid was  "rendered.

'When he awoke oa  Wednesday morning he. found that burglars had eutered the saloon during the  night or morning and looted the till.  They secured about S30 iu cash, a nugget  specimen valued intrinsically ut 815 and  a w.ilcb and s mio other jewelry sufficient to make the total loss betwi-eu $80  and ������90. A further investigation revealed tho fact that two men, as shown by  foot, prints ou the snow, had forced the  window on tho side of the house which  opens into the sitting room adjoining the  saloon. .After seaming their booty, they  left in the same ' maimer that they  eutered.

Its low altitude, near  location, plenty'of timber etc. and'last  but not least its good surface showings  combine facilities not usually found in  mica mining. A few shots put in across  a face of 24 feet exposed a deposit of  mica varying from a few inches to a two  feetiu thickness extending into the rock,  'lhe specimens taken nut are very clear  and of good quality. It is understood  that some of them sent east for. inspection have been very favorably reported  on, and the owners have several offers  for the prospect.

Kaslo has cause to be proud of its uew  boat the International. It remains to be  seen, however, "of what stuff she is  made."  The way sonx* papers attack the C. P.  R. seems to be a little unjust. The  members of that corporation are not a  band of thieves although some of the  papers seem to think so.  The Trail Creek News is to have a new  city editor who is described as a"hustler,"  The rapid growth of the News would lead  one to, believe that there ha. beeu some  of tbat material in tbe News oflice all the  time.  Public opinion .on the mainland has  now been evoked to such au extent "that  we believe British Columbians will never  countenance the building of a railway  line to the mining-country which is rot  controlled by tbe people���������The Province  The silver supporters of the United  States must have made a mistake. - A  number of days have passed sines election and yet no silver miues have shut  down. On the contrary silver has an upward tendency and the business of the  country seems to be steadily improving.  If the People's Railway in British Columbia is successful what a boom it would  give the single taxers below the liue.  They have always believed in the government, ownership o** all railroads and  would be glad to see us take the initiative.  Burglars have had-a regular harvest  -dnring-thepast-week-and unless precau--  tions are taken there are liable to be  many more-robberies before the wiuter is  over. Mining towus' as a rule have  inadequate police protection and rough  characters are not slow to take advantage  of it.    "-.--.'  The.effort on tbe part of lhe Rev. Mr.  Akehurst and others to.establish a reading room'in towu is n praisewoithy one  ' and should be given hearty support-by  the peonle of Nelson^ Precautious have  been taken to avoid a similar mistake to  the one that was made two years ago. A  detailed account of the project appear., in  another column. ,* -      .  WASHINGTON FLOODS.  The State of Washington is having a  terrible time with floods and iu some districts land transportation has been almost  entirely cutoff. This unfortunate state  of aifairs has existed a number of days  and the loss will sum far up in the millions. North Yakima and Seattle seem  to have suffered most and in thc White  river aud Snohomish valleys many  people have beeu ruined and rendered  homeless. The Snohomish "river has  become a raging torrent and has in undated the country for mile3 around. The  destruction of property has been great  and houses, barns and other buildings  have itoated down the stream. It is  unfortunate thnt the water cannot be  controlled and these disastrous floods  averted, The watersheds of both the  Snohomish and AVhite rivers are so great  that a heavy snow followed by a sudden  thaw produces such gigantic volumes ot  water that human ingenuity is unable to  cope . with. ir. Natural channels are not  sufficient to carry off the unusual body  of water and in consenuence the settlers  and railroads must suffer. AVhile this  district is not free from floods they are  not as destructive ai those of the Sound  country.  BUY CLOTHES AT HOME.  There has been some complaint in regard to Nelson' people sending .broad for  the clothes they wear, the system employed being to give representatives of  Toronto houses, orders for suits, selected  from samples shown to them. It seems  that Nelson houses should be entitled to  this trade. It is hardly fair for a man to  seek the patronage of the public in bis  line of business and then refuse to give  a tailor or a clothing man his patronage.  Our merchants are obliged to pay heavy-  rent s and employ expensive help and if  money is unnecessarily withdrawn from  general circulation by sending it away,  business in all lines proportionately suffers. Competition will always regulate  local prices.  WHAT WILL HE DO?  About one ot the first things Major  McKinley will be called upon to do after  taking the oath as President of the  United States will be to receive a delegate  from Hawaii and at ouce announce his  position in regard to tbe annexation of  the islands. The political power in  Hawaii favoriug the adoption of the islands by America has been by no means  idle since their last defeat and for that  matter neither have the anti-annexation-  ists, though the latter, since tbe severe  lesson they received a year, ago, are very  circumspect. Ex-Queen Lilliokalaui has  beeu fully pardoned by the protectorate  and is believed to be as full of .schemes  for her restoration as ever. It is thought  the republican leaders will bring great  pressure to bear on Major McKinley.  RESULTS INSISTED ON  Geueral AA'ej'ler bas been given to understand by the Spanish government  that unless he pushes operations against  the Cuban insurgents and soon achieves  a decisive victory, he will be recalled.  Spain wants the question settled before  December 7, the date of the meeting of  the American congress. The position  Grover Cleveland will take iu regard to  Cuba in his message to that body will be  largely determined by news received before that date and Spain fears adverse  action. AVeyler has about 10 per cent, of  his righting forces laid up in the hospitals  and will certainly have to work hard, to  accomplish much before December 7.  Spokane county has-a real, live ghost.  It, is located near Mt. C.irltou nnd moans  and wails w.en twilight shadows gather.  A number of farmers have heard the  ;blobd curdling sounds but as they had  lost no ghosts they did not stop to investigate. Thay are willing and eager to  tackle a "pesky-bear" or a "tarnation  catamount" but they draw the line at  spooks.  The Spokesman-Review' has a report "of  ii race between the Kokanee and Inter-  natioiial ahd says that the former wears  the broom. This is slightly premature  as the 'so-called race was only a little  brush from Five Mile Point. If tbe  Kokanee is entitled to wear a broom for  winning this race, it could at best be  only a whisk broom and that wonld not  look very big when nailed to the mast  head.  The fear of the Kootenaian that smelters would be built at "Vancouver if .the  0. P. R. controlled the Crow's Nest Pass  road, seems to have been already realized.  W. R. Rust in a receut interview' published in the Spokesman-Review, says  that the work of construction of a new  smelter at Vancouver will be commenced  in 30 or 00 days and thnt they expect ores  almost exclusively . from Trail Creek,  Slocan, Rossland, etc.  Spokane is between the "devil and tbe  deep sea." She is uncertain ^.whether to  let her populace wade through rainature  rivers at street crossings or to <put an  additional burden on the shoulders of the  tax payers by paving the streets. It is  said that Hell is paved with good intentions and from nil accounts it is a permanent and lasting pavement. Spokane  would be able to see a way out of her  predicament if she could find a pavement  as cheap and a3 durable.  The Inland Sentinel urges the owners  ' of mining properties on Coal Hill to prepare a number of cabinets of specimens  of their ores and place them on exhibition in this city, Victoria, Spokaue, A'an-  couver and Rossland.. As so many-  investors visit the places named the  Sentinel ' argues that - their attention  would thus , be called to the Kamloops  district. It advocates assays by the  Provincial assayer and printed descriptions of property, etc.  The" eastern papers generally have  given such prominence to the fairy story  of J. G." Devlin, known throughout the  West Kootenay as the -'Gunner from  Galway," that an influx of fair maidens  may be expected throughout the country.  Devlin, in interviews in Toronto, stated  that girls were a rare article iu the Kootenay and thousands could obtain .rich  husbands or splendid positions by emigrating to the promised land. Although  the story has been denied by all the  papers of this "country, .letters, come  ! every day, addressed both to business men  j and newspapers, sent by'.would be inptors  ! of husbands and homes.

OF GEKEEAL INTEREST.  The Novelty Gold Mining Compauy  elected officers for the ensuing year last  Monday, John A. Finch, president; C. J.  McCraig, vice-president; M R. Galusha,  treasurer and E. C. Gore, secretary. The  Novelty is a promising mine on Red  Mountaiu and as the company has $4,000  in its treasury it will continue work  all winter. The superintendent is John  Moynahan, formerly superintendent of  the Le Roi.   .  TheColonna, situated on Monte Cristo  Mountain, has been sold to a syndicate of  Montreal capitalists. The mine carries  a fair percentage of gold nud the heaviest  copper ore in the camp. It is about the  same as tbe Josie was at the same stage  of development.  An interest in tbe I. X. L. group of  mines on Clugstone creek, near Colville,  has been'sold to a London firm for .25,-  000. Development work will be commenced next month, enough having beeu  done to show capital what a splendid  property it is.  Last Monday tbe directois of tbe Cariboo Mining Compauy declared a dividend  of 817,000 or two cents per share, payable  December 7. This' is the twelfth dividend since. February, 1895, altogether  Sl-5,.401.34. The property has been  thoroughly developed nnd consists of two  claims��������� tbe Catiboo and Amelia.  AVhile thawing out dynamite on the  Rouud Hill claim on Cariboo creek,  Charles Berger nnd Crist Miller. were  instantly killed through its explosion.  The bodies were fearfully mangled aud  tbe cabin blown to atoms.  The Idaho- companv has just declared  and paid a dividend" of 820,000. The  Idaho is a well known Slocan mine and  has been paying monthly dividends for  some time.  A new issue of Colonna stock bas beeu  placed on the eastern market at 15 cents.  In two years the Cariboo miue at Camp  McKinuey, witb only a ten stamp mill  has turned out $220,000 in gold bulliou.  The Liberals of Kamloops hove forwarded an invitation to Hon. Israel Tarte  minister of public  works, to visit Kam  loops before leaving tbe coast.  Gold has been discovered in Algorua,  east of Lake Nipigou, about 300 miles  north of the Bainy river mines.   -  A carload of horses was shipped from  Portage La Prairie to Belgium last week  to be used by tbe Belgian cavalry.  Horseless carriages are to be tried  next week by the postal authorities io  the collectionof mails in New York city.  Tbe result is anxiously awaited by the  carriers.  llla/.iiiK .Stars Fell.  - Butte,' Montana, was visited last Suuday morning about 5 o'clock by a vivid  meteoric shower, lasting about an hour.  It commenced with a shower of shooting  stars, ending up in a perfect rain of blazing balls of lire which made everything  as bright as a day in June. The phenomena was foretold by astronomers,  they occurring at '.title about every  thirty years.  rKOFCSSIOtiAI.

The 'directorate! ot the Columbia &  \Vestern railway, which is practically controlled by L. A. Heinze, owner of the  Trr.il smelter, has deeide-1 to build the  greatly -ceded railway from Robsou to  Trail, a distance of 28 miles. The preliminary survey liues for the road wore  run a year ago by C. E. Perry for the  Canadian Pacific and as thore arc few eu-  giiiceriQK difficulties in the way the road  should be rapidly constructed. It will  follow "the course of the Columbia river  as far as practicable aud a bridge will be  constructed ut or near Kobson and from  there the road will follow the Columbia  river to the mouth of Murphy creek aud  thence westerly will enter Trail creek  cnuyou ou the flat north of Trail on which  the Trail smeller is located. The road  bed of the Columbia .. Western from  this point will be changed to a broad  guage. The proposed line will form a  connecting link in the much talked of  Crow's Nest Pass road.  It is said that if the C. P. lt. is not  "b'ackifig Mr. Heioze, it is, however, lending him material assistance in the furtherance of his railway schemes in the West  Kootenay district. Free access to the  great silver fields of the Slocan means  much to the Trail smelter aud it is certainly a step in the right direction tc  have British Columbia ores smelted at  home.. Just how soon work will be commenced on the road is a matter of conjecture.
