MAKES GRAVH CHARGES.  A K-'HHlHi'.-l  Mini's  Letter to  the  Victoria  Colonist.  The Victoria Colonist in its issue of  October 28th, publishes a two column  letter from Charles T. Lang, dated at  Rossland, October 20lh in which the  writer makes grave chaiges against  some of the mining companies there,  He accuses some with selling the stock  of several mines and diverting the proceeds for the development of one miue.  "This mine was boomed at the expense  of the others. Ore was taken from at  least one of the others lo swell the output of the boomed mine'. * * *  The showing was splendid and it. is  said the capitalists bit." The writei  -accuses other mine companies of direct swindling and the whole tenor of  the letter is to reflect discredit on the  mining interests of Rosslaud. He  speaks of the filthy sanitary condition  and the inadequate fire department.  His article makes serious charges that  should not be made unless they can be  substantiated. It they are true and  can be substantiated then the writer  should feai.essly--i.anie the companies*  and the inines referred to and not re-  > fleet discreditably upon nearly every  mining property in liossland.

The charge that the annual expenditure  of"the"rpreeent~government exceeds thnt*  of its predecessor is not borne out by  facts, The estimates and supplemental  estimates of Mr. Foster amounted to  $45,890,681 for the current fiscal year.  The total estimates, main or supplemental, ol Mr. Fielding amount to $__,5-0,-  778, with a reduction of 81,350,000'on Mr.  Foster's. Mr. Fielding's estimate contains items of expenditure chargeable to  consolidated fund amounting to over  half a million more, making a balance iu  favor of the Laurier government of  81,852,-00.  . A CHARGE OF CONTEMPT.  Editor   A.   II.  Sealfc   or lhe  "Province"  Will Have to Answer.  On Tuesday of this week, Messrs. McPhillips, Wootton and Barnard, solicitors  for- the Consolidated Railway Co. at  Victoria gave notice of motion to commit  Mr. A. 11. Scaife, editor of the "Province"  to jail for contempt of* court' The motion was to have been made yesterday  and the charge is that on October 24th  1806, the Province published certain  comments .and statements in regard to  the collapse of the Point Ellice bridge  r ling to actions' awaiting trial, that  # calculated to prejudice or interfeie  wiih the fair trial ot the suits then pending in court.  ..Sauderaon-Wiiitc.

A -ood Demand.  Mr. Thomas Grey of .the Nelson planing mill says that the lumber trade is  good and that this town is using a large  part of the mill's output although considerable is shipped to Cody. A vast  amount of building is being done in  Nelson and nearly all the houses undex  construction are "of a very good class.  The mill is making much office fittings  and Mr. Gray says that work in the mill  will probably continue throughout the  ���������winter.

Montgomery Smith of Toronto has  purchased the Hattie for 80000 from  Lauree, Bosquet and Fountain..  The Monitor machinery has arrived  and is being put in place, the hoist being  one of the be^t ever brought to the camp.  Very rich copper ore has been discovered on Emu Group in the South  Belt. It is under bond to an English  syndicate.  The Park Mine shaft is down 100 feet  and the ore taken out is full of quartz,  the assays takeu from the bottom the  past week, averaging.$30in gold per ton.  A fine body of ore 4-A feet wide hns  heen discovered on the Mascot An assay showed 812 in gold. The ore looks  very much like that taken from the  Kootenay and the Iron Colt.  A lot of new machinery has been ordered by the British Columbia Smelting &  Refinery company from the E. P. Ellis  company of Milwaukee, Wis., which will  more than double the present capacity of  the smelter.  Additional plaut has been ordered for  the Trail smelter, and when it is installed  its capacity will run up to about 600 tons  pet" day. Mr. Heinze intends to add a  lead stack so that he may be enabled to  reach out for the Slocan ores.  Superintendent Haskins of the Jumbo  Gold Mining Co. Las. telegraphed the  officers at Spokane that he has struck n  rich pay chute of ore iu the upper cross  cut. Four or five assays wera made and  the ore ran in value from 832 to 836.  'The West Le Itoi and Josie shaft is  down 10 feet, with solid ore over half thp  bottom and running into the hanging  wall. >A general sample assay . showed  840 in gold. The ledge is uow opened  from the Le Roi west end line about  500 feet.  The O K mine has opened up No. 13  level and a liue body of ore has been  uncovered. The last of the fittings  required in connection with the new  st;imp mill at this mine arrived on Saturday, and in a few days the, works will  start again with one of the finest plants  in the province.  A new parallel ledge showing four  feet of free milling quartz has been  uncovered ou the Norway, ou O K mountain, south, of the main vein. A. W.  Moore <fc Co., of Victoria, recently purchased the proper ty of the C. F. Clough  & Co. syndicate.  . Rumors are afloat from fairly well  authenticated son ices that a serious  hitch has occurred in connection with the  sale of the War Eagle. It is stated that  the payment now almost due will not be  made. P. Clark and J. F. Finch have  left for Loudon and until they returu the  sale of the War Eagle is not off.  It is reported that Jim Wardher secured an option on the entire, capital stock  of-the Colonna company, with the exception of the treasury shares, ut 12.  cents a share. The first payment on the  option was made just before Mr. Wnrd-  ner left for Montreal.  A"mass~of ore" 30"feet"wide_has~been"  uncovered on the Cliff exposing 500 tons  of shipping ore on the surface. No stripping or exploring was done until recently  when Colonel Wharton determined to  open up the new showing. An offer of  8300,000 made in writing by a strong  English company hns just beeu .refused.  The Crow_ Point has" developed *- into  one of the most valuable mines in the  Trail Creek district. The recent ex-  ploratious on the ground of the Crown  Point have disclosed an immense body of  ore that comes to the surface. . This ore  body is regarded ns the second largest  in the camp to show on the surface, it being more than ten feet wide.  It is said that iu addition to the  dividend which Le Roi recently paid,  auother will be payable ou November 7th  and with the new compressor plant, Le  Roi will be shipping 335 tons per day in  a few weeks, whieh will probably mean  dividends" of 850,000 per month after  Jan. 1st.  Moi'HIt.  net returns will be about 8131 per ton.  The mine will now be a regular shipper,  abniit 750 tons of ore being, already  blocked out or on the dump.  ' Tim Ontario is located above the  timber line. Thc company have recently bought the Tom Moore from  Blandy brothers and M. Mon.ighun for  timber purposes.  Two cases from'the Washington circuit  involving the bonding of mines in the  Knslo-Slocau mining district, were passed  upou by the United States circuit court  of appeals, Judge Knowles, of the Montana circuit,' rendering o'pinious, both'of  which iiflirmed the decision of the lower  court. The case turned principally upon  a question of fact, and Bond was released  from his bargain, both by the lower and  upper c.mrts.  . Salmon Kiver.  Thi* Moigove and Marie a quart-  claim gives a $0 assay.  The Spokane Belle assays run from  $4 to $3S. The owners are D. C. Corbin and M. Roberts.

The average assay of the American  Eagle at a depth of 12 feet is $38. The  mine is own������d by Messrs. Jones, Reid  and McDonald.  Assays of $124 have been made on  ore from the Arlington, there now  being 75 tons of ore on the dump 'and  horses are packing it to.the railway.  The Victoria has been sold by R. W.  Craig for $7,030 cash, practically no  work having been done on it but men  have now commenced sinking.  Average assays from the Ben Hassan, go $80 por. ton, a tunnel being in85  feet and ore will be ��������� shipped this winter. The mine was discovered - by  John Einpey and sold to a company.  Samples of ore from Tamarack, Dinner Bucket, Gold Pan, and Racatam.  claims on the Salmon river assayed on  75 pound average samples $25 in gold?,  three samples going $233, ��������� . $74  $511 in gold. Men have been sent up  with horses to pack out ore for. ship--  ping. In the winter it can be run, a  good part of the way in chutes. Work  has been done on the Tamarack  only.  KkhIo.  II. Geigerich states that receut development on' the Trade Dollar near tbe  Blue Bird has made it a $25,000 mine.  The sampling works of the K. & S.  have been completed and the cars now  stand at the mill. They will receive  their burdens in a few weeks.  Six men are at work on the Gibson,  cross-cutting, to tap No. 2 lead. This  tunuel is now in 109 feet.

"Everybody's Tea," given at the Hre  hall last Wednesday evening under the  auspices of the Ladies Hospital Aid,  was a grand success both financially  and socially. Those who expected tea  and a light lunch weie disappointed  most pleasantly for "Everybody's Tea"  is a decided misnomer, "Everybody's  Dinner" would have been a little  nearer for tbe menu was an extended  and delicious one, containing all that  a person could wish for. Meats, salads, entrees, and desserts of all kinds  were served by the ladies and made  many wish that "Everybody's Tea"  was a daily occurence. The tables  were lavishly and artistically decorated  with beautiful flowers that added  much to the general attractiveness of  the scene. The viands served were  donated by the' ladies of Nelson and  about 150 persons were served at the  tables. During the progress of the  dinner, which lasted from 0 to 8 o'clock,  Messrs.   McDonald   and Day, accom-  Sanied on tbe piano by Mrs. Day and  [is. Whitney, favored the assemblage  with very pleasing songs which were  heartily applauded.

He said that the  hospital was doing a good work and  deserved the support of the community  at large.  "      THE NEW CONSTABLE.  THE SMALL DEBTS  ACT.  ITS CONSTITUTIONALITY HAS BEEN  CONTESTED IN VIOTORIA.  Jnntlee Med-elght.   Walkem. and   Drake  Hold Thnt the Lnw In ConMtl'uflonKl.  Ontllne ofthe Argument.  The constitutionality of the Smalt  Debts court act was argued liefon-  the full court at Victoria last week.  Justice McCreight, Walkem aiVd  Drake presiding. At the conclusioi.  of the argument judgment was reserved.  Mr. Robert Cassidy who had been  appointed by the Provincial Government to contest the.constitutionalily  of t be Act, argued that in so far as t he  Small Debts court act gives jurisdiction  lo magistrates in a judicial position as  distinguished from tlieir executive  authority as police magistrates, Ibe  act was unconstitutional. The act  practically made a magistrate a judge  to exactly the same extent in civil  cases, except in amount, as a County  court judge, or even a Superior judge  The question, therefore, was whether  the Province had a right to appoint a  judge, and this he submitted it had  not, as the tight to appoint judges  belonged to the Dominion, section 06  of the B. N. A. act providing that  "the Governor-General shall appoint  tlie judges of the Superior district and  county courts, except those of the  courts of probate in Nova Scotia and  New Brunswick.  Mr. A. G. Smith, deputy attorney  general, for the provincial government maintained that the act was  constitutional, arguing that under  section 92 subsection 14 of the B.N. A.  act if nothing more had been said the  province would have had full power to  appoint judges as required fur the  regular administration of justice.  The full court rendered its decision in  the case early this week and unanimously agreed that tbe Small Debts not  is .(institutional and its establishment  quite within the power of the province.  The decision was verbal and tbe reasons  were uot given but will be embodied in a  written judgement to be delivered in n  few days.  .    THE 1-IG STACK IN USE.  LOCAL NEWS IN BRIEF.  The Washington mill, - which was  placed 1500 feet below the mine in the  Great Western slide, has br-on obliged  to close down on account of the lack  of water.  The Antoine ii being equipped '.with  pumping machinery. This mine is  owned by Messrs. Green, -lumbermen  of Minnesota, and is-under the management of Jack Ryan.  The R. E. Lee, which has been under  bond for $c5.C30 to Stewart & Welch,  has reverted .to the original owner,  Lorenzo Alexander, owing to the -fact  that the bonders threw up their option.  The property is now being worked by  Mr. Alexander and his cousin,. H. B.  Alexander of Calgary.  It- is rumored that the Sapphire  claim in the McGuigan basin, Slocan  country, has heen bonded tn Nelson  people for $15,000. The property is  owned by M. Alonaghan aud VrMUiam  Heirington. . The first bond on this  property was taken by R. M. Sherman,  J. F. Cutter and Stanley Miller, who,  after doing some work, threw up the  bond.  The Two Friends Mining Co., owning a  claim in the Slocan district, have received  returns from the Tacoma smelter of the  first car load of ore shipped. It give, a  net of S164.20 per ton. Deducting the  cost of mining and hauling to water, the  t._t-('ons<_il>l--0'l.oi-ii<'Thought he only held  Trumps.  Ex-constable O'Loane was arrested on a  warrant sworn out by Recorder G. H.  Riishdall this week but after spending  three or four hours, in jail was released,  Mr. Rashdall withdrawing the charge.  It appears that during his last month of  service as constable, O'Loane at different  times got money advanced to him by the  Recorder aud when settling up time  came, it was shown that be had drawn  860 in ali. His check was for 862.50 and  it'wns agreed that the Recorder should  take the check and pay the difference.  O'Loane was inside theofl-cecounter when  the check was handed to him and he was  requested to endorse it.(! He took the  check, put it in his pocket, and tried to  jump over the counter but was prevented.  He said the check belonged to liim-and  he would not give it up. Arguments'  were of no avail and- nB no one had  authority to stop him he left the court  house aud took the oheck with him. Mr.-  Rashdall then swore out a warrant for  his arrest charging him with the theft of  the check and at about 5 p.m. constable  Miles had him landed in prison. At  abont 9 p.m. the prisoner, who had consulted au attorney, coLcluded to give up  the check aud as soon as he did so, the  charge against him was withdrawn.  Tiie Fooruiaji Claim,  A. L Davenport of the Poorman mine  was in the Mixer office yesterday and  stated that 20 tons of concentrates had  been shipped this week from that mine  to the Hall "Mines smelter. There are  about 170 tons of ore on the dump aud as  soon as that is milled work will be  resumed on the lower tunnel which is in  I about 120 feet.  He Hold*  HI*   l������o������ltlon for Only a few  Ho������r������.  Mr. .Elkins, formerly jailer at Rossland, arrived in Nelson, last Saturday  night as the new constable appointed  by Superintendent of Provincial Police,  F. S. Hussey. to .take the place of  special constable Olone who was released. Mr. Elkins reported to Capt.  Fitzstubbs and was at once put on  duty, but on Monday morning, it appears, he had a misunderstanding with  the Captain. The latter asked hiin to  sweep out and cleanup the office aud  Elkins flatly refused to do to, saying  that it was not a part of a constable's  duty lo clean out offices. He said  however that be would cause a prisoner, the only one in the jail, to do so.  Capt. Fitzstubbs ordered Elkins to do  the work himself and the latter again  refused to comply with the order saying that he had not beeneinployed^as  a servant. The Captain then'told hiui  that his services as constable would.no  longer be required and Elkins telegraphed Chief Hussey for instructions.  Since that date Mr. Elkins has heen  awaiting a reply but as Superintendent Hussey has been looking up police matters in Slocan it is probable  that he has not yet received Mr. El-  kin's telegram,   . .  -*..

Although many men have assisted  in the search for. E. "A. Powys, who  mysteriously disappeared a week ago  last Wednesday, no clew to his whereabouts has yet been obtained,. It was  reported yesterday that a man answering to his description had been seen  going towards the summit over the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard railroad and  three men were sent out by the brother of the missing man, Mr. A. Powys,  but ho tra;e was found. ..The country  in thb>rr^njHliate vicinity of Nelson has  beeu thoroughly searched by men who  have used dogs to assist them and yet not  the slightest trace has been found. The  prevailing idea now is that the missing  man is not dead but in n fit of temporary  aberration of the mind has wandered to  some neighboring.towh or^amp. Among  the gentlemen who'have assisted in the  search were Dr. Symonds, Mr. Dickson,  Mr. Fletcher, Mr. Bell. Mr. Senkler, Mr.  Newling and Mr. Ransom. Constable  John Miles had nine men out one day.  With the aid of au Ingersdll drill in  the Laird mine on Wiilow river, Cariboo.  the shaft which  it; in rock, is being sunk  rapidly.

The officiating  minister was Rev. Mr. Ladner. The.  groom is a well known civil engineer and  a member of the Rossland -Townsite  company, while the bride is a daughter  of tbe widely known cattle dealer; David  Adams of Campbellford.

A terrible explosion of gas occurred at  Wilkesbarre, Pa., in the No. 3 mine about  1.30 -Thursday   morning.     Six men are  known to be dead and three injured,   lt.  is not yet known how many men were in  the miue at the time of the explosion, but  12 are reported missing,'and it is believed -  that all of these have perished. The dead  who  have heen  brought to  the surface  are:   -William   R. Jones, fire hoes'; John  Joseph, assistant mine foreman..

GAZETTE NOTICES.  ���������''iFi'om the B. C. Gazette of 22nd Oct., I896]  ' SOME JUGGLED,FIGURES.'-  The'Rossland Miner in a recent, issue  does some very clever juggling with  ���������figure., supposed to represent the customs collections of Kaslo, Rossland  ;Waneta, Trail, Rykerts and Nelson.  .The writer would have it appear, that  ���������Rossland. is the greatest commercial  centei^in the Kootenay district because,  forsooth, its custom house receipts .-ire  larger than in any of the other- towns  and this little conceit might be good  natuivdly passed were it not for lhe  fact that every one of the amounts'he  quotes are wrong. If he had spent,  one tenth of tbe time in writing to th.  ' customs house here, that he spent in  writing his   article,   he   would   have  KOOTENAY RAIL CONNECTIONS.  The people of British Columbia have  an interest in common with those in  Eastern Canada in seeing the Crow's  Nest Pass road built froiu'aconnection  with the Canadian Pacific,.east of the  Rocky- Mountain?,, and ��������� lapping the  Kootenay 'country'arid'divcrtiug from  the United States the thide that so  properly'belongs to our own country:'  The statements of .Sin..William Van  Home 011 the-subject- are clear and  Concise and go tu prove,; beyond Ihe  shadow, of .a doubt, that the Canadian  Pacific intends to build to this section  of the country as sOoivas" possible. In  connection with this Crow's Nest Pass,  the C.P.R. is contemplating the extension-.,of-.the- line-from Kootenay  directly westward to- re-connect with  its''m,.in line at Hope. "Sir - William  Van Horne estimates the cost of. the,  extension from-Kootenay to Hope at  any where from $15,00!),000 to $25,000,-  000 and very properly says it -will certainly follow "the construction of the  Crow's Nest Pass line. It would .be. a  grand, good thing for both Vancouver,  and the Kootenay if the whole pi" the  contemplated line could he built simultaneously, , hut" the most important  part of the work at present,' at "least  to the Kootenay and to the*' railroad,  considered from" a tinancial'point- of  view, would be the construction of the  Crow's Nest Pass road to Nelson and  to Rossland and the extension of the  present C. ������fc K:'to-Slocan City and  New Denver. As Sir'William Van  Horne says, the fur'.her westw.mi const ruction of the iine'would "J'ollo-.v" as  a natural consequence.  The'Vancouver people naturally desire the construction of the coast-. i,,.i*  at once and there is no quest ion but  that the general benefit would ,hu proportionately greater, but.if the project  is one that cannot'be undertaken at  once, as a whole, then the best thing  , will be the building of the Crow's Nest  Pass road: - If coal is as -plentiful ��������� in  the Crow's Nest country as is reported,  thei'e-.will be sufficient, trafliu in that  commodity alone to pay the operating  expensps.j The smelters of ��������� Nelson,'  Rossland and Pilot Ray will* consume  vast quantities of.this coal 01 "coke to  say-not hing-of-the���������hicair'consumption-  by this and other- towns.' The- Northern Pacific and Great Northern have  expressed a desire for.-this coal and the  Spokane and Northern, the C. & K.  and the K. & S. would without, doubt  use it in preference to wood.' The  road-would open up a district known  to be teeming with mineral wealth and  the ore'traffic would piobably not he  the smallest part of the business. Rail  connection between.Nelson and Rr>.<-_;-  laiid would be a paying investment  from the start andjt is fair, lo assume  that traffic would greatly increase  every season. The mining interests of  (his district are constantly being 11 ng-'  uie.uted by new finds and it would not  I he long before the road would be taxed  j to its utmost capacity.  We are inclined to tako issue  with  j Sir AViliiam" Van  Horne in  the sl.'ite-  1 ment   that", "nobody   else   could    or  would" build local lines as feeders, if  thi. government .should construct the  main line.    If it  were apparent that  the construction of local lines  would  prove* to be paying investments I here is  i no doubt but that  individuals  or cor-  l potations could bo  found to   establish  jlhem.    It was said that nobody could  i or would establish   the  K   & S.   from  j Kaslo to Cody or the  line  from   Trail  to Rossland, iind yet this was done and  today both are successful lines.    Kootenay needs the Ciow's Nest road and  j thefeedeis to it as suggested liy Sir  j William Van Horne and there  is little  : doubt that the government  will grant  ! all reasonable  aid  and  that it  would  j prefer   to    deal    with   the   Canadian  j.Pacific instead of outside parties.  ���������     NKW  INX'OHl'ORATIOXS.

Siij.s ||   Will  It. llmiiu.  V  Sir Willinm Van Horne, president of  the .Canndian,Pacific railway, while in  "Vancouver last week expressed himself  at length to a News-Advertise, repre'cu-  tnLive upon the question of building a  liue of road from tho main liue east of  the mountains hy way ol" the Crows  Nest Puss aud Kootenay Lake lo tho  Pacific coast. Iu reply' to a statement  that a Winnipeg paper had quoted him  as favoring the consti action of the'Viiu-  ecu*-'!., Victoria and Eastern Kailway  aud Navigation Company's railway from  the,Kooteuay country to the coast, he  said in substance:  "Ih_t is a misinterpretation of what I  said on the subject. I was asked if the  Canadian Pacific company would oppose  a .charter to the company referred to,  covering that territory, and I ��������� replied  that it was not the policy of the Canadian  Pacific company to oppose any charters,  and 1 did not think it likely that our  Directors would oppose this one. ' My  views were also asked as tothe de.ira-  . bility of a line from the Coast to tbe  Kootenay couutry, aud I replied that I  looked upon it as a coming necessity, but  that there was not yet anything like  enough traffic iu sight to support such  an expensive liue. But I said nothing  that could or should have been construed  as an approval of the project of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern Kailway &  Navigation Company, for I kuow very  little about the plans aud aims of those  concerned in it. I may say io this  connection that the Canadian Pacific  Company has had iu mind for half a  dozen years past the construction of a  liue.. from its main .hue east of the  mouutairis, by way of lhe Crow's Nest  Pass aud Kootenay Lake, to the Pacific  coast, or to a connection with its main  line uear Hope, aud the tying together  of this liue and. the main liue by a series  of north and south lines, one following  the Columbia river up from Golden,  auother from Kevelstoke to Nelson and  auother by way. of Vernon to the^Okano-  gan Valley. You will readily see the  advantage of this general system in  developing all parts of southern British  Columbia. The company has already  expended a large amount of money,  about $2,000,000, towards carrying out  this plan,-iu the purchase of the Gait  railway between Lethbridge aud Dim-  more aud its conversiou into a standard  guage road; iu the construction of the  Columbia <fe Kootenay .railway whicli  will be a. link in this system;' iu a considerable amouut ot grading between  Fort Mncleod and the Crow's NeatTass,  and in very, extensive surveys which have  been carried ,ou -for a. number of yeais.  with a view to ascertaining the possibilities in'the way'"of coiisbruction on the  Hues indicated.  "The Crow's. Nest Pass liue is without  question of the. first importance in railroad building. That is the cheapest' and  quickest way to provide the necessary  facilities for the development of the  Kootenay couutry, und at the same lime  to secure Canadian interests in the trade  already'developed aud to be developed,  and if that is loug delayed, the trade will  become permanently established south-  ,-war'ds and- will be permanently lostto  British Columbia and to the whole Dominion. Aside from local liues to reach  the different miuing camps, .the next  importaut move would be lo complete  the rail connectiou between Nelsou aud  Kevelstoke, so ns to afford the earliest  possible all-rail route'between the Kootenay district .and the Pacific coast. I  think it probable that this link will be  completed nearly as soon as the Crow's  Ne3t Pass liue, and with -this iu view, we  ���������have���������just���������now���������oeen-8urveyiug"--a���������iine  aloug Slocan.lake southward to connect  the Nakusp and Slocan with the Columbia aud Kooteuay Hailway. G  "The direct- line from the Kootenay  district. to the Fraser valley will follow  the completion of the Crow's Nest Pass  liue a's certainly as one sunrise follows  another, for- tbe construction of the  Crow's,Nest Pass liue and the connectiou  to llevej'stoke will .result in'such a'development' of traffic as will justify the  extension of the Crow's Nest Pass line to  the Fraser. I have no doubt whatever  about that. I am quite sure that these  things' will be done by the'Canadian  Pacitie, if done.at all. It is easy enough  to organize independent companies aud  to get .-charters, but when it comes to  raising the mouey, these independent  companies might us well try to reach the  inoou."  "But it is uuderstood that the Canadian Pacific is asking the Government to  loan the.mouey for the Crow's Nest Pass  liue," wi(S asked.  "Something very like that. But you  must not overlook the fact that the  simple construction of the line from  Lethbridge to the Kootenay Lake will  not come anywhere near reaching the  object in view. In order that it may be  effective,*., it must be supplemented by u  large number of local lines to reach the  different mining*camps, audit is pretty  ��������� safe to say that these, iu their aggregate  mileage, will amount to as much as the  main line of the proposed Crow's Ne3t  Pass railway, aud ��������� somebody has got to  build these, or the Crow's Nest Pass railway will not accomphslfits object, aud  will be *.a miserable -failure from a financial point of view. The Canadian Pacilic  -Eailway Company does not feel able at  the present time to finance for the Crow's  Nest.Pass raihvay, and for all of the local  lines in addition. * *���������  "The Government has tried its hand at  railway "buildiug a number of times, aiid  .you kuow the, result; ���������' But eveu if the  Government were able to build tbe Crow's  Nest Pass liue ao well and as cheaply as  the Canadian Pacific Company could do  it, the Government would have to build  vall. of the local hues to which I have  referred, in .ad_iti--u ;o lho.Crow's Nest  Pass line, for nobody else could or would  do it. It would be folly for the Canadian Pacific Company to build a lot of  local lines as branches from a leased line,  aud besides it would be .impossible to  finance for the local liues in such a  situation."  "How much money would be required  for building a line from the mouth of the  Fraser river to the Columbia liver in the  vicinity of Rosslaud?'" w;is t-sked.  "According to our surveys and they  are the ouly surveys tbat have been made,  it would cost not less thau fifteeu million  dollars, aiid probably twenty'or tweuly-  five millions. As compared -with tbe  Crow's Nest Pass line it would be exceedingly heavy work."  OF G-MEEAL INTEREST-  The British Parliament will re-assemble,  on Jauuary 25ih, '07.

Latest advices from Singapore state  that the revolt iu the Phillipiue islands  was more Ferious thau at first supposed,  and that in a short time it will assume  the proportions of the Cuban revolt.  In Jersey Island a law has been passed  legalizing marriage with a deceased wife's  sister and anyone who can live there the  time required may obtain the desired  qualification.-  The Governor of Victoria in a speech  on Imperial Federation said: ;'It would  be wise if possible to bring America into  n grand defensive league of the Anglo-  Saxon race, which would effectively'  secure the peace of the world."

The new steamship Canada, of the  Dominion line left Liverpool on Thursday evening, Oct. 1st, calling at Loudon,  derry for mails aud passengers. She left  the north coast of Ireland on the 2nd.  find entered the St. Lawerence at day-'  light ou the 8th inst., passing Cape Magdalen at 10 a.m., this beiug the quickest  passage betwe.u the British Islauds and  Cauada.  The Cauada, ���������^lii^_wjhe_lnrges_.tiaiisr.  "Atlantic* mail steamer "that has ever  entered the St. Lawrence, is a twin screw  ship," propelled by' two engines of the  latest description,, and has a carrying  capacity of 9,000 tons. In the provision  for, the comfort of passengeis, she is  unexcelled, aud what has in the past  been considered luxuries - are on the  Canada reckoned as beiug the necessaries.  .Special attention has also been given  to the accommodation for the second  cabin passengers, that saloon being on"  the mam deck, a part of the ship which,  on* many ol* the first class liners, is  usually reserved for first class passengers.  In her arrangements for steerage paesen  gers, she is well provided, the rooms  beiug.closed in, while there is very large  deck accommodation for " this" class of  travel. If the Canada realizes the expectations of her builders, Messrs. Hurlaud  & Wolff, Belfast, who constructed the  famous Majestic and Teutonic, the  passage between Quebec and the Old  Couutry should be made within six days..  Oil III Kasl Kooti.iiuy.  Much is expected of the oil fields in  East Kootenay-which were discovered  several.years ago, but which have beeu  waiting capital to develop them. The  .Stony Indiaus have always ������used the oil  for medicinal purposes, gathering it during their annual hunt in the Flathead  valley. They were induced to. show  where the obtained tbey crude oil to some,  miners, who found there were two kinds 1  of oii obtainable; a black oil at Kishnee  creek, and but eight miles north on Sage  creek, a nearly pure light yellow oil is  found which will burn in a lamp just as  taken from the ground. Natural gas  escapes freely from the bedrock and  ignites easily. When the oil was sent to  the geological museum at Ottawa it was  pronounced a fraud it was so pure, aud  Dr." iielwynj head of the departrneu fumade atrip to the district finding it as  represented, and also that it was found  in the Cambrian formation." Over a large  area of ground indications. of oil were  1 fouud, showing that immense oil fields  only await the touch of capital to make  known to the world their almost fabulous  value.
