Mr. T. G. Proctor is at  present in Victoria, but will be hack iu n  month.  Hou. A. G. Blair and Hon. Juuie. Dom-  villie arrived iii K"*slo, Monday afternoon  aud left on Tuesday morning over the  Kaslo ��������� & Slocan. The gentlemen were  invited t" inert the Chamber of Coin  nierce and citizens in the' Presbyterian  church, the Olympic hall not being available. Tbe Chamber of CuinniPtce pre  suuted them an addie..* of wt-luomc,  selling forth points of public interest to  which the minister's attention was  directed. Mr. Blair replied in liia'otHci-il  capacity nnd Mr. D.imville' in his non-  oilioial capacity, lhe "latter sayintr that he  represented no one but, himself, hi* constituents and the. temperance pmty. L.-itli  expressed themselves as beiug grontly  enlightened with the information tiny  had received aud promised to give full  attention to ihe necessities of thc Kootenay district. Mr. Blair assured his  henrera that the new government had  under consideration the mutter of securing the new line of rnilw.iv and wonld do  till it could to forward the miniug interests of this sectiou.  After the public meeting tbe visitors  were turned over to a committee of citizens who iuvited the guests to a banquet  iu their honor, which came off in the  splendid diuiug rooms of the Kaslo hotel.  About fifty sat down to the table and  enjoyed one of the finest spreads that  was ever served in tlr's city. Mr. G. O.

Te:i;Mile cieck if probably the busiest  tributary to Slocau lake south if New  Denvi>r. It has won the faith of investors  by 'timing out well so I'.w. While thc  presence of the new wagou road encourages mine owners to develop their chsims,  it is astonishing what a laryc pe: .outage  of miniug investors stick to the high  road.' in u new couutry titid fear to look  at claims whicli are, for tbe time being,  somewhat inaccessible. These of couise  are wise iu many respects but they pay  more for whut they buy iu fashionable  centers.  AV. Coplen went np to tho bead of. Dayton creek on December 6tb lo begiu operations un the Skylark a d RaDger,  which were lately bonded by Coplen and  Cowles to Alex. Dick of Jogging, N. S ,  f. r $40,000. These claims are on the  Lemon creek elope, just over the summit from the head of Dayton creek, und  will be tbe pioneers iu extensive development, although the Chapleiui, au adjoin  iug claim, is the pioneer shipper, with  the exception ot the Hansard FrucUo-  which ships by way of Springer creek.  So far there is no trail dowu Lemon  creek and nil supplies and ore have to  pass over the div.'de between Springer  and Lemoii decks. This divide is low  however, and iu no part of this district is  there much danger of snowslides. Under  these disadvantages four groups of promising claims have come to the: front all  of which should nalurally* ship duwu  Lemon creek to Slocan river vally. These  are, Crusader, Howard Fraction, Chap-  leau, and Skylark Ranger groups. All  rich ores uf argeutite und gold. Ibere  arc many other claims having au assessment done but tho cost of packing, etc.,  over lhe divide has disco ti'aged work lo  some extent but the chief teasoti has  beeu an uip.-illingue.-s- of investors' to  take interest in prupoities wliio'i have no  decent trail down tbuir o-.vu drainage  basin. This shyness is wearing oil, as  interests iu the Ciusadcr and Skyiaik  Rauger g_'uup_ have lately bueu transferred.  HON. A. a.

There has beeu _, some movement in  the matter of getting a branch recordiug  office at Slocan City. New Don ver is  18 miles away. The expense ol recording is thus considerably increased nnd  moreover - the volume of business tributary to this place is by uo means small  even at present while it is not too much  to expect to see a much greater expansion  of business around the soul hern portion  of Slocan Lake considering .the development of lhe past six mouths.  Work is progressing steadily on the  Republic and on the Slocau Bob. These  claims are quite close compaiatively to  Slocau City nnd are only two of a good  many ptomising claims along the same  slope. Both are sinking shafts. Sinking on lho ledge appears to be a favorito  way of doiig preliminary development  on "bonded claims hereabouts. '��������� In ninny  cases it is necessitated by tbe low dip of  the ledges and easy slope ofthe mountains in this district.  Tho Exchange, under bond to David  Bremner, is turning out some/very pretty  ore at present. This mine is already a  shipper of high grade gold and sjlver ore.  Like nearly all the ores between Lemon  and Springer creek the value in gold is  fairly high, It cannot be out of the way  to impress people with - tbe fact that gold  exists in workable quantities associated  with the dry silver,' ores of Southern  Slocau. These are.not free "to .a great  extent hut become more so as one goes  southwards toward Nelson, such as exist  on the long high "ridge between Six Mile  creek and Yuill creek.  Nelsou people hardly realize how close  to them this section . of". tbe Slocan is.-  From many summits in sight of Slocan  City the mountaius east aud-south of  Kootenay lake cau be seen, whilst the  trip from Slocan City to Nelsoii; via  Lemon" creek and Six ' Mile oreek on  Kooteuay lake was made by- scores of  prospectors last summer. It is only a  long days'. walk to reach McDonald's  Farm at the mouth of Six Mill creek and  a very low pass forms tbe sources of the  two creeks...*  - The Springer creek rawhide trail will  bo finished'this week. Delay has been  caused by heavy_ -weather and the construction of a high bridge over Dayton  creek. - This trail although of necessity  rather low iu grade for rawhiding offers a  fairly even and permanent road such as  l"op lorn Jim liclD Six MinnlUs for Stnb-  lilng ,1 Mini.

The tough then made off for Three Forks  but he was promptly tracked nud taken  by a Swede. lie was put in the cooler  and the general hope wtis_?thnt he would  get a good substantial time iu Westminster to think over his ways and to, wis*-  he had not come "under ' British law.

The road will  be on au easy grade and run through a  valley that will be beautiful' in the summer time. This vnliey is fairly well timbered and contains some good .farming laud.  The chances are that construction will  be commenced at an early date and thu  road will form one of tbe links of the  Crow's Nest Pass road, ; We have completed a survey of the entite shore line of  Slocan lake nnd nt considerable personal  risk along the bluffs. Tho work on these  bluffs* will resemble that of.the Lowe/  Fraser .river can you but for the present  the new boat now- beingconstructed will  give fast service in the gap betweeu Rose-  berry and the foot of the lake.

Another content for supremacy occurred between the stenmers International nnd Kokanee yesterday aftcruoou  and it resulted in a victory for the  former.* The course was from Five Mile  Point to Nelsou aud although the race  was acloseoiie, the International was iu  the lead and the broom she is entitled to  should be a size larger than a whisk  broom. The Kokauee people say their  boat was very heavily laden aud not iu a  fit condition to raceaudall they are willing to concede is"- that it is "horse ahd  horse" Both sides now-hope for a teat  of speed from-Kaslo to Nelson. "When  the boats were finishing yesterday there  was much excitement aud shouting on  the streets.  From Trail to Rolison.  . ��������� It ��������� is repotted ��������� upon what is supposed  to be good authority that the contract  for the construction of the Columbia &  Western railroad from Trail lo'Robsou  has been let'.to Mr. Winter, a :.*e!l known  contractor of Butle.Moutana. The consideration is said to be 8600,000 aud work  is to be started immediately.  A' dispatch from Trail yesterday states,  that tbe contract for twenty miles has  .been awarded to Persons, Winters &  Boomer of Montana. The road is to be  completed by May, 1st.

G. _31.iir,'|of Ottawa, Minister  of Railways and Canals ;<ud* Mr. James  Domvillp, Member of Parliament from  Kings, New Brunswick, arrived iti-Nelson  from Spokane in Mr. Blair's private car  last Friday night. They remained over  Sunday visiting points of interest nnd o  Monday left for Kaslo. From Kaslo tlir-y  went to Sandon and Nakusp ami from  there down to Robson, Trail and Boss-  land. They propose lu go buck to Spuk:  ane from Rossland and from . there to  Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver, returning homeward by way of the Canadian  Pacific and expecting to ariive there in  time to assist iu tbeceleb'ratioii nf Christmas. Mr. Bln:r states that 11-iu. L. II.  Davies, Minister of Marines and Fisheries, accompanied him ns far iw Spokane  but continued'ou his way to'Victo.i.i ac-d  Vancouver wiiere the people were awaiting him. It is Mr. Bluii-'rt ti^t trip to  this country and he was much imptessed  with what he saw. Mr. IH-iir his read  and heard much of the Kooteuay district tind was greatly inte,'������sletl in everything peitaiuitig to it. Tlie location of  Nelson and its environments he thought  were magnificent. In conversation with  a representative of The Mine.������ he said:  "My trip hers is solely in oonneetiin  with the railroad development .of '.his  section und it is something that has beeu  attraotiug considerable attontio. und  iuterest in Eastern Canada. Thu government thought it right for me to visit this  couutry and look it over as well as I can  Ut this season of the year with a view to  gathering all the information available,  first hand, so that the g^vonim.nt can  consider tho project ofthe Crow's Ne.t  Pass railway at the earliest time p.-sslbl..  The British Columbia ni'in'o-rs at the  last session of parliament wero very solicitous in regard to the'matter au i "urged  that it be takeu up without delay. Ttieie !  is, however, a good deal of work lo be I  done nnd inquiry to be made bjfo o a  venture of this magnitude cau be taken  up. At Ottawa, thc departmental work  was so pressing that I actually had to  run away to make the trip. Thedesite  was that I come hero before the next  session of parliament, whioh, uuder  ordinary expectation should- meet0 in  February."  In reply to a question as to the expediency of making the project a government enterprise, Mr. Blair said:  "I have uot formed amy judgement at  all"upon'-the .subject."*- I havo only just  arrived and have uot been able to form  conclusions. If I had, I question much  whether it would be wise to give them  voice. It is a question of government  policy audi can say that the government  -ia nlivo.trt tho ho.port-nice or doing everything in its power to .develop the resources, of lhe Province and to meet the  wishes of the people. I think the people  of British Columbia arc satisfied that  tlieir interests have not suffered in tmr  hands and there appears to be no cause  for'apprehension iii the present instv.nce.  It looks to' us as .though the growth aud  expansion of this part of Cauada will be  vast and almost uulimited nnd we are  confideut that the people realize that its  prosperity has not been retarded by the  failure of the government to do its duty.*'  "What do you thiuk of the proposition  of buildiug a liue of railway from the  Columbia river to a connection nt Hope,  simultaneously wiih the building of the  Crow's Nest Pass roadr" was asked.  "I have heard very little about such ti  -proposition--was the reply.���������^^���������--^-   '���������The matter is being agitated iu Vancouver aud government aid. is to be  asked for."  "We are not much concerned with that  at present," said Mr. Blair, "you of  coursa realize that the Crow's Nest Pass  "road is a vast undertaking and at present  is fully occupying the minds of the  people. Now there is danger in.lookiug  after too iun>*y big projects at the same  time. . It might have the effect of causing  them all to fall to the ground. The  demand of tbe people at present is to get  an eastern connection aud eveiybody's  attention is directed lo the Crow's Nest  Pass line. It means that whether the  government builds it or aids it, the mouey  must be raised on the credit of the government That is apparent. A great  portion of the mineral nrea will be served  hy the Crow's Nest Pass line and tho  government taking hold of it in any form  will be justified in seeing what the results  are before taking up any other large project of a similar nature. I f.mcy the  time is not quite.ripe for forcing that  upon the goyeruincut."  Mr. Domville, Mr. Blair said, made the  trip with him as be felt a great in lore.-) t  iu a question of such universal importance. He also desired to see the country  a? he was connected with capita.ist. who  would be disposed upon his recommendation to invest iu this district. Mr.  Domville iu~speakingc with The Mineis  representative said:  "There is no doubt but lhat this question of the Crow's Nest Pass railroad will  como before the Hou.se in some shnp '  and one can only treat it comprehensively  by personal inspection and being ou the  spot t.) learn whit the requirements ofthe people aro; to ,see the character of  tho country nnd the mode of ingress and  e-jres.. When this has beeii doue it is  theu safe to form an opinion. I think  the whole future, of this section i ��������� wrap-  p *d up in thi* Crow's Ne.t Pass railway.  Tho qnestiou will he the greatoa' o-ie  before tbe House nt its next session."  who had been unanimously selected for  that purpose, read the following addre..  from the citizens:  Mr. Blair in responding thanked Ihe  gentlemen for their kindly welcome, iind  spoke briefly in relation to his visit here.  In regard to the Crow's N*e3t Ys\~n ra'l-  road his remarks were substantially the  same as those employed iu the foregoing  interview, conservative to a dfg'-ee and  exhibiting an undercurrent of_euU;usiu3m  that satisfied his hearers tliat liis hcr.rl  wns in the work. Ho remarked that he  had beeu sent out especially to look into  the matter and to see how the I c >ple felt  toward it. Tbe government, lie said,  would do the best it could for the people  for the question was one that bad assuin  ed a profound importance aiid hail  received considerable attention nt the  hands of the government. One th ng  the government will do, should it decide  to assist in tbe construction (if the road  and that is to keep the rates nnder its  control. Owing to the lateness of the  season his trip was necessarily curtailed  bat next summer he ho,.jd to make a  more extended investigation .   ������������������  Iu rega: d'to the post ollice, he said  that he supposed the service hnd been  good ' and this was tbe lir.-t. time the.  matter had been called to ai. nttentiou.  Many new towus have been clamoring for  government buildings to accommodate  the post office, custom house and inland  revenue otlice but a town like Nelsou  which had contributed over 8110,80 iu  the first three-quarters of a year in post-  age,- custom house and internal revenue  "receipts was certainly eutitled lo more  consideration than other towns. He  spoke of Ihe work doue ami money expended iu improving navigation at tne  narrows betweeu Upper and Lower Arrow lakes nnd said that' iu tho, course of  several years, wore improvement would  probably be made.  . Mr. Blair saw no reason why the differences between thc C.P.R. and tbe Nelson  & Fort Sheppard 'could not be readily  se tiled and the latter find a terminal iu  the city. There is a staudiug committee  to settle all suoh disputes nnd should Mr.  C irbi'i go before it with his case he  would certainty get justice. Mr. Blair  eloped hiii remarks with n glowing des  c:i[itiou o:' ihe relations that should exist  between the. Kootenny and Eastern  Cn-iiidti. c  LOCAL  NEWS IN BRIEF.  WELCOMED BY CI-1ZSNS.

Does it imply that the fair sex proposes to don  rubber boots and invade* the hills?,  the United States, President Cleveland  gives Spain to understand that hia government takes nothing and gives nothing  and will  uot now interfere to end the  trouble.    In  other   words   the   Uuited  States  will not now recognize the belligerency of the Cubans.   The president  gives much space to the question and  ends with  a warning   that   unless   the  breech he speedily healed the patience of  the United States may become exhausted  and she   may   interfere   with   her  own  forces  aud   resources.   President Cleveland counsels  moderation nnd says that  it  would  seem that if Spain would offer  to Cuba genuine autonomy���������a measure of  home rule,  which  while preserving the  sovereignty of. Spain,  would   satisfy all  natijnal  requirements   of   her   Spanish  subjects���������there should be no just reason  why the pacification  ot the inland might  not be effected on that basis.   Tbe advice  is undoubtedly good but the chances are  that the Spanish government will   not  accept it in tbe spirit it is offered.  In regard to finance, the president  desires the retirement ot all greet)backs  and the issuing of bonds for the purpose  of redemption. In default of this he  thinks it would be a step iu the right  direction if the currency obligation  redeemable in gold, whenever so redeemed, should be cancelled instead of  beiug reissued.

A stranger in Neb on was heard to say  that he was well acquainted with Horne-  Payne, the president of the C. P. B.,  aiid thought him a very fine fellow.���������  (Figaro's Shout.) .    '  The people ot the United States are  wondering what Congress is going to do  with the tariff. The deficit last year was  so great that many think immediate  action is necessary.  When a man is.abused by everybody  all around, it is more thau probable tbat  he has some very.; good points���������points  which pierce the * vttnerablo parts of his  abusers. This is particularly so of a man  holding any. public office.   Tliink it over.  "Put not your trust iu any man's legs"  is always very good-following advice.  Especially is it so during the weather  which . west-country people in England  '* call "Slipper." The clause "neither in  your own" should be ad Jed when walking  down the high grade streets of Nelson.  The Spokesman Review speaks of the  mandatory requirements of tbe constitution of the state of Washington iu regard  to free passes. It seems that instrument has many mandatory, clauses that  would cause "Washington citizens to cry  out in indignation against it if encountered iu British Columbia.  That Canada can1 be coerced into annexation by a refusal oh the part of the  _JUhite_LSta_tes to improv^trnde relations,  seems to be- the idea of some AmeiicatT  journals. What' an extrnoidinary conclusion. Did you ever hear of the boy  who cried because he could not have the  moon ?  The blessings of incorporation are not  unmixed. "Perhaps like teas and whiskies a. blend is better.. Rosslaud may  become incorporated with much trumpeting aud flourishing thereof, long before  Nelson puts on her municipal-garment  of virility,-yet the last state of Nelsou  may be a safer oue thau tliat of Rossland.  HON. A. G. BLAIR.  The utterances of Hon. A. G. Blair,  Minister of Railways and Cancls; to a  representative of The Minee reveal very  clearly that gentleman's feelings in regard to the proposed Crow's Neat Pass  railroad and  if  the  fate of the project  depends upon Mr. Blair's report, there is  little doubt but that favorable legislation  will be   taken   at   the  next  session of  Parliament.    The Minister of Railways  when he reached Nelson had seen but  little of the country but was so enthuns-  tic that his predisposition in favor of the  scheme was very marked.   That he is an  extraordinarily keen, level headed official  is proven by his public record and his  sympathy and   cooperation will have a  tendency   to remove   all donbt in the  minds of legislators as to  the   practicability and advisability  of the government building or aiding in the construction of the road.   Mr. Blair has a clear  idea of the benefits to be derived from  this road and the effect it will have upon  the development of this section ofthe  couutry, n development, that for rapidity  and strength will probably exceed all  those known to history.  Mr. Blair was inclined to be very non  committal in his talk but while addressing the citizens he acknowledged that the  project, was of greater importance than  he had at first supposed it to be.   He  said that lie could give uo assurances  that ��������� the government   would  build   the  road or aid iii its construction but this  expression  was-a most, natural one and  auy other would  certainly   have bee-  premature.   He regretted the lateness of  the season which would cause his trip to  be brief and said that he   hoped to go  over the same ground agaiu next spring.  What [significance a remark ot this kind  m;ght have, is at best only a matter of  conjecture and open, to many constructions.   One thing is certaiu and that is  that Mr. Blair is fully satisfied that the  fate of the Kooteuay disttict in a large  measure depends upon the construction  of the   Crow's- Nest Pass railroad.   He  realizes   the   vast   extent   and   richness  ot this mining country and even if he did  uot have  the interests of this district at  heart���������he--\*,ould-be--inelined.to_s.ubtnit_a  favorable  report iu  tho iuterests of the  peoplo    of    Eastern    Canada.     Public  opinion,   however,   is   favorable to   thc  construction ofjthc road through govern:  ment aid and the best results may confidently be looked for.   Mr.   Blair is uot  inclined to entertain for a   moment  the  proposition-.of   haviug   the government  aid the coast line at the present time and  thinks  that tho ouly matter of supreme  importance is the building of the Crow's  Nest Pass road. ��������� " .     ���������  It is as easy to pay off a Loan on our plan as  it is to pay rent.
