Among these  were Messrs. MacDonald, Ward, Arnold  and others. The report was adopted  after a short speech from tbe chairman  and an expert 'statement regarding the  property.  The recommendation of the directors  tbat a 5 per cent preference' dividend  should be declared-waa also passed, but  the- re-eleotiou of director! brought several-shareholders to their feet who wanted "an explanntion about the difference  betweeu Mr. Nielson, one ofthe retiring  members of the board,- and the others.  This,'however, was not easy to give under  the. circumstances, owing to tbe absence  of-Mr. Nielson.'  ' The reelection of three gentleman to  911 the places of the three retiring members of tbe board brought Mr. Macdonald- sharply to his feet to challenge the  necessity of this and the general policy  of the board, whioh he said was extravagant. He represented, I believe,.the  Halls,.the half-breeds who discovered  the Silver King nnd adjoining mines and  who 'are still largely interested in the  welfare ot tbe company.  Mr. Maodonald's attack was listened to  attentively, but the board had the car of  the meeting and his amendment was  rejected, Messrs. Ward audi Bovell, who  are largely interested in British Columbia, being elected to the vacancies.  , The chairman leplied at length to the  criticism raised by the disaoutents and  ;ji:;'J that tbe board had every faith in  .Mr Davis and his colleagues.

Mr. Macdonald is  staying.r. the Grand hotel.'   -  Canadian Mining Review has a series  of articles under the caption of "'Truth  vs. Exaggeration" and among them is  found the following roast:  The erudition of .the staff of the  Rossland Miner must be pub to the  stretch to answer the numerous letters  of enquiry and complaint printed in  its columns. If it is to maintain  among its subscribers a reputation for  "justice and impartiality," and a.s a  "reliable authority," which "Vulcan"  thinks it has, it must have a little  more definite knowledge* than is evinced by the "think���������inclined to believe  ���������it would appear," which characterise  its replies, and it must stop printing  what "the Rossland public thought"  and have an opinion of its own.  Otherwise we fear that an apology on  the lines that "the Rossland, public  has had greatly exaggerated ideas"  will not soothe -the fretting shareholder. For ourselves, we should be  surprised to* learn tliat the Rossland  public had any ideas that were not ex:  aggeratad.- Imagine the satisfaction-  it must be to a buyer of one of Ross:  land's stocks,' after learning that the  company in which he has shares has  no title to a property, to find that ��������� the  Miner is "well satisfied," in spite of  the fact that "'the management has  not been paying much attention either  to the property or the interests of the  stockholders," that, when the president's attention is called to the condition of affairs "they will promptly be  straightened oiit." Great Scott! what  a president and what a company���������  when the president's attention has to  be called to the fact that liis company  has no miner's license and bus no property _, standing on the records in its  name? And yet the omniscient expert  editor does not know of any worthless  stocks in the market!���������and prates of  Rosslaiid working "with most gratifying success" to prevent "wild-catting!"

The AIixeb next week will publish

the town during thc last year.
Now that the holidays have, been
passed the people at large are looking
for some definite action by the United
States Senate on the Cuban question.
AVe again wish to call thc attention
of the Oold Commissioner to the disgraceful condition of the streets of
Nelson. The expenditure of $3 per

least passable for ladies and children.
The llight Hon. William I?. Gladstone celebrated his S7th birthday on
December 29 at Ilawarden., His
friends all over the world are glad to
know tliat he is still in good health
and wish him many happy returns of

The yonr 181X5 has been a memorable
one for the town of Nelson and tlie
West Kooteiiay district at large and
the wonderful progress made during
that -period has attracted the keenest
interest from all parts of the world.
During the year 1895 the West Kootenay district- was in its infancy and
capital looked with considerable doubt
and apprehension upon any proposition coming from here but the development of the past year has been
sufficient to practically demonstrate'
that West Kootenay is the richest and
most wonderfurminiiigdistrict known
in the history of the world. .Miles up-
.011   miles  of mountains teeming with
mineral richness constitute the Kootenay and'although but comparatively
few of tbe mines liavo been thoroughly
exploited, thousands of good ledges
have been opened up ���*'���'* "how a'mar-
velous amount of wealth. During the
year many mines have become regular
shipper.-* mid hundreds o" others aie
now* preparing to ship in Llie spring.
In nearly all cases the returns have
exceeded expectations and as a result
millions of dollars arc now*ready for
investment and development work.
The .Nelson district with the great'
Hall .Mines was the lirst fo attract the
attention of the* public and was followed in succession by Ainswortlu'
Slocan, Trail Creek and Lardeau, A
large amount of work has.been done
in" Hie Nelson district and a0 gie.it
many properties have been worked
'during the past year. In the silver
camps of Ainsworth and the Slocan.
rapid progress has been made and in
the Lardeau and Rig Bend the devel-
onment has shown gratifying results.
Ofthe famous Trail Creole and Holland it is unnecessary; to speak.' Of
the new camps much work has been
done in, tlie White Grouse .Mountain
dist>rict and also"on several claims on
Go.it river. Deer Park, liurnt Pass,
".Waterloo and .Montgomery camps
were worked Lo a considerable extent
: nd a large number of linds were
worked, within a radius of 15 miles of
Nelson, on .Salmon river. Wild Horse
creek and Hall Creek to the south.
To the ninth new linds, made on
���Kolianee and other creeks which head
toward Springer and Lemon creek*--,
are noted for great richness and a
number of properties are being worked. To the west of Nelson a large
number  of claims have been worked.
The Mixer has no desire to enter
into a discussion or indulge in recriminations with the Tribune. In its last
issue, however, the Tribune was guilty
of a piece of blackguardism unworthy
of a newspaper, ��The use of scurrilous
language, as a rule, cminates from
persons who have no just claim for
recognition and is generally confined
to social outcasts or those whose inclinations lead them to voluntarily
seek and. consort with low and depraved characters. The Tribune (probably
voicing its own sentiments in the matter) says that if the manager of the
Nelson Electric Light company had
bribed the AIineh with a ten-dollar
advertisement that an article referring
to an advance in' electric light rates
would not have appeared, but upon
the other hand would no doubt'have
shown that even after the contemplated advance was made the rates in
Nelson would be lower than in many
other places in the province.
We notice that the. Tribune carries
an advertisement of land for the manager of the company referred to and
we wonder if this is the cause of the
Tribune's championship? According
to their own argument of the case it
would certainly seem so. We are also
constrained to ask if the writer of the
aclverfcisenient did not also write the
In regard to the publication of the
article in Tile Miner, it was a matter
of news puro and simple and there
was nothing whatever in it that
showed a disposition to be revengeful
or to injure, anybody. If there has
been any injury to the business it lias
been through the action of tlie. company and not through the publication"
of a fact. As we have said, the article
was news pure and simple and even if
the company had been advertising it
would have been published. Unlike
the Tribune, the AIi.neu does not suppress news I'or consideration's of this
kmd but gives to the public all the
legitimate news that can be gathered.
Our contemporary speaks'of loyalty
Lo Nelson institutions. Is not the
lirst consideration, loyalty on the part
of institutions to tbe public ol* Nelson?
If an institution voluntarily injures
itself;' should a publication of the fact
be subject to criticism of the description complained of. A thorough canvass of the town was made, by our
solicitor who was in search of advertisements and any one not desiring to
patronize the paper was certainly
within his rights and those few were
treated with courtesy. The little
is due to its waning popularity and
the growing favor with which the
people of Nelson are supporting The
Mined. We have never in the past
taken any notice of the Tribune's
liutlo gibes against this paper knowing
,hab (hey simply proceeded from
jealously and we do not propose to
waste space on it in the future.*'
home industry with every safeguard
tbat is just and equitable; not to shut
out competition and place mine owners in the power or at the mercy of
smelting syndicates, but to place all
such institutions on [an even basis so
that it may be the survival
of the fittest. With the completion of tbe Crow's Nest' Pass' road;
advanced transportation-facilities, and
the opening up of nearby coal fields
of almost unknown extent, it is anticipated that many new smelters will be
started to treat Kootenay ores. There
is a discrimination now" against the
British Columbia smelters aud as
the matter stands, a premium is being
offeved for theestablishinent of smelters
below the line.- To overcome the existing difficulty it will be necessary for
the government to impose an export
duty of one quartei;. of a cent per
pound on all lead ores shipped
out of this country. The matter, is
one of great importance to British
Columbia and unless some steps are
taken at the next session it may prove
a serious drawback during the year
1897. ���    -.
We hope Air. Bostock will bring the
matter to the attention to the proper
Dominion authorities in older that
this disability may lie removed at the
earliest possible moment.
