No one else will  be admitted under any circumstances.  Siuce the trial, Wood has been imprisoned at New Westminster. It is  expected that he will arrive here today  uo*der a strong guard.  Tho scaffold on which Wood is to be  banged is being erected iu the jail yard.  It was made at New Westminster and  shipped here some time ngo.

Conn  Waterworks Contract let  aud the  By-law Tusscd Again.  At the meeting of the city council last  Monday night, all members except Alderman Dow were present. Tenders for  the construction.of the waterworks system were received. Each tender was accompanied by a certified check for one-  fourth of the amount bid.  The bids were as follows: Tender A,  head works on Anderson creek and Hume  to reservoir���������Breckenridge & Lund,  .$2,993; AV. C McLean & Co., $4,000..  Tender B, reservoir���������Breckenridge &  Laud',. $3,835; Noll & Thompson,  > $4,3S0.50.  - Tender D, laying pipes"��������� Breckenridge  & Lund, 84,655.  Teudrft C, for material, will be opined  ou August 10. t I  Teuders A and B, by Breckenridge &  ��������� .Lund, were accepted. -  The clerk was instructed to have a coh-  _ tract prepared for the carrying out of the  tenders.*  On motion ot Alderman Gilker the ten-"  ders for laying pipe for the waterworks  system wero. refe; red to the public works  committee, to be reported on at the next  meeting.  The electric lighting aud wiring by-law  " was passed on its third and final reading.  The mayor .stated  that owing to some  '    irregularities in Public Works Loan bylaw No. 1, it would be necessary to pass  auother by-law for the issue and sale of  debentures.   This was attended to at the  sessions held on Tuesday and Wednesday  At the meeting ou  Tuesday afternoon  the ouly absentee was Alderman Gilker.  The contract for laying the pipes for  --��������� the -waterworks-system-was---awarded_lo  W. C. McLean &.Co.  ore, is a valuable deposit. Assays  made by A. H. Holdich, of this city,  show about' 10 per cent, copper, with  some $5 in gold and a considerable  amount of silver. As thc samples  were taken from the surface only, it  will be easily imagined that the ore  will improve with depth of working.  A careful estimate by experts shows  that there is now 16 miles of tunnels,  shafts and winzes in the mines around  Rossland. Estimating this at $15 per  foot, it gives a total of $1,250,000.  Byrnes and Doyle, the locators of the  Lilas mine, at, the foot of Trout lake, intend to ship a carload of ore to the Nelson emelter shortly. Tbe ore is grey  copper and galena and runs about $100  to the ton, the paystreak being about  eight iuches wide.  A 2000-foot crosscut tunnel is to be  run on the Slocau-Liberty Hill company's  properties, on the south foik of Kaslo  creek. An air compressor plant sufficient  to do the 'contract work and work the  mines is to bo used. Preliminery. work  will commence sometime next week.  Tbe Caineronian mine near Sandon,  has commenced shipping. On account  of the defective trail, it is costing about  $10 per ton to bring down the ore and  probably $15 more will lay it down at  the smelter. The company is shipping  rock and all the ore from the  mine, to get an unvarnished test of what  the property is worth. They think it  will run at least $1.50, perhaps $200, but  they confidently expect a profitable  return.  The Tupper syndicate has decided to  complete the purchase ofthe Exchange  group, on Springer, creek. Mr. Alexander Dick the representative, of the  syndicate in Kootenay has made "the  first payment. A concentrator -to  treat the ore will probably be built in  the near future. The Exchange group  consists of the Exchange, Victoria,  Silver plate and Skookum claims.  The properties.were owned by William  Boie and Martin Isaacson, and thc development consists of a 50 foot tunnel  and a 00 foots haft, the ore being a  high grade galena. Negotiations for  the sale have been pending for some  time.  PETITION FOR AN EXPORT DUTY.  The Miner's Efforts in the Matter Meeting  With Great Success Throughout  all Parts of Kootenay.  The People of the District Appear: Detennined to Save  the Smelting Industries of Kootenay from the  Machinations of, an Alien Corporation-  To' thc Governor-General of tlie Dominion of. Canada-in-Council.:  The petition of the residente of Kootenay district, in the Province of British  Columbia, humbly sboweth: r  That tbe development of the mineral: resources of Kootenay district has proven  beyond all doubt that the present tonnage and. value of the ore mined is already  sufficient to constantly supply several large smelters; _  That within the Kootenay district there exist all the elements necessary for tbe  economical reduction of ores;  That a smelter is noy being erected at Northport, iu the ������tate of Washington,  U. S. A., at a point distant leBS than seven miles [from Canada, and only sixteen  miles from Rossland, the center of the Trail Creek mining division;  That at the present time there are in West Kootenay district three smelters of  a total capacity of 1,075 tons daily, representing an investment of more than one  million dollars and employing 560 men;  ,  That tbe people of Kootenay are desirous that! the district may. not only "produce ore, but also have such productions smelted and refined in its limits, or at any  rate at some point in Canada, thus building up an industry beneficial alike to labor,  capital and commercial interests;  That the imposition of an export duty on ores containing copper or metal other  than lead and nickel would not only assist the smelters at present established, but  would be an inducement to capital to invest fartliet in such enterprises within the  Kootenay district; Y  Therefore, your petitioners pray that an export duty, such as is in your power  to grant, may be imposed by the Dominion of Canada"upon all ores exported from  Cava'da, containing copper or metal other than lead or nickel, and your petitioners  as in duty bound will ever pray:  citizens a  one mile  of these streets will afford tbe  good, level roadway nearly  long.  Tbe property has been facticiously  known as Bogustown, but the proper  name is Lake View, giveiron account of  the three-quarters of a mile lake front  Some time ago, many of the lots were  sold to Victorians, who? with their characteristic enterprise, have made no improvements there. Lake View is the  only level track of land in the vicinity of  Nehon. ������������������ ?  THE LOAN BY-LAW.  A  BIG   SMELTER.  A Much raised Piece or Legislation by the  "City Council.  Municipal by-law No. 1, providing for  the borrowing of $50,000 for public improvements, has had a most unfortunate  life. Alter it had heen finally adopted  the first time, the failure to attach the  corporation seal within the time specified  by law rendered it inoperative. In due  course of time the seal arrived, and the  by-law was adopted.a second time. Bids  were called for aud one was accepted.  The purchasers in examining the by-law  thought it defective, and asked that it be  corrected, and adopted as amended for  the third time. This was done, and last  Wednesday the council took final action  it. The portion alleged to be defective  was the specification as to what the  money shall be used for. Tbe by-law  stated that the loan would be used for  water and sewer systems "and other public works������ot immediate necessity." This  has now been changed so as to specify  water and sewer systems, street improvements, jail and the purchase of the fire  hall.  PLENTY OF "LIME.  MINING   NEWS.  One of the most important discoveries  made this year has beeu located by Steve  Ypuug ou Wild Horse creek. *'  <  It is reported-hat a deal has been con-  sumated in a large number of claims on  -the"north fork of the St. Mary's river.  The leugth. of the Reco tram will be  about 9.000 feet and will have a drop of  about 3,100 or one-third of the leugth.  Eugiueer C. E. Perry estimates tbat  the wagou road from Slocan City to the  Arlington-basin will cost $1200 per mile.  Since Jauuary 1 there" has been SOO  locations recorded at Fort Steele making  a total-of 1750 claims recorded in that  district.  The Omaha-Grant company bas paid  out $60,000 in import duties on ore from  Kootenay mines, butthey cannot afford to  import the ore at the new tariff.  "Ye hardy miners of South Toronto  would sooner stay waitiug for sucker  bites in Ontario than, go looking for  frost bites in the Yukon.���������Toronto Telegram.        : **'  In a few  days a carload   shipment of  Two   Friends  ore will   be   made from  Slocan City to   the  smelter, as   nearly  -that   amount is already  sacked   at the  property. ***    .  Although July and August are the  dullest months in mining camps there is  considerable' activity in business in Sandon and the merchants one and all are  fairly well satisfied.  ��������� The Home-Payne Syndicate have sold  their pack train to Hill & Thompson of  Sandon, who'have contracted to haul the  company's supplies in to the mines, and  bring out oie from the Broadview end  Silver Cup to the landing for shipment.  "Wilson Bros, have bonded the Last  Chance group near Cottonwood lake,  and have a force of about 10 men  working there.. The property con-  . tains copper, silver and goic., and  from      the      appearance     of     the  A Deposit at Snyward, the Site Offered  to  to thc le Koi Conipniiy. -  Superintendent Paul Johnson, of  the Hall Mines smelter, has made a  careful analysis of samples of lime  rock, taken from the townsite' of Sayr  ward, at the mouth of Beaver creek.  The result is, in every way, thoroughly  satisfactory. Tho analpsis gives Insoluble Matter 4.8 per cent.; C. A. O.  40.0 per cent.; Mg. O. 3.3 per cent, and  Fe. O. 3.1 per cent. -  The Say ward townsite is on this side  of- thc���������international���������boundary���������: and  about 10, miles from Northport.' The  Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway runs  through a corner of the townsite. The  West Kootenay Land company, owners'of the land, through Mr. Joshua  Davies, offered itb give the Le Itoi  company as much area as would be  needed for smelting purposes at that  point. Colonel Peyton, on behalf of  the company promised to take .. the  matter up.  A Baptist Church.  Rev. G. R. Welch, of Toronto, Ont.,  arrived Tuesday evening andexpects  to permanently establish a Baptist  church in this city. The school house  has been engaged for services until a  church cau be built. Services will be  held tomorrow morning and evening  at regular church hours. ' A cordial  invitation is ��������� extended to all'to attend  the services.  THE   OBJECT   AND. SUCCESS   OF  THE   PETITION.  ���������- The above petition is being circulated throughout the length and breadth of  West Kootenay, and has met with a most enthusiastic reception in every locality. Its  popularity is the best possible proof of public sentiment as regards the establishment of the Le Roi smelter at Northport.' , The willingness with which it is being  signed by miuing men generally is particularly significant and gratifying. The object of the petition is readily appreciated.. The public fully realize that by the  granting of the prayer, the Dominion groverumsnt will aid materially in forcing the  Le Roi compau y to build their smelter in Kootenay instead of seven miles south of  the international boundary. Bat for the present policy of the Le Roi company,  there would be no need for the petition.. -'  There is no desire to in any way interfer with the silver-lead mining:industry.  It is already seriously hampered by the present exceptionally low price of silver and  the United States import duty of \% cents per pound on lead ores. Besides, there  are not sufficient silver or lead smelters in Kootenay at the pr eeent time to handle  the district's output, nor .to give the healthy competition of local ore buyers that is  desired. Tbe case is entirely different so far as concerns ores that do not contain  lead.0 The idiotic contention of the Rossland Miner that an export duty on all ores  would be satisfactory is either another instance of tbat journal's gross ignorance of  what is best for Kootenay, or a willful attempt to succor the interests.of alien  smelters and alien railways. . The contention thnt silver-lead ores should-be subjected to au export duty because the Le Roi company propose building a smelter at  Northport for treating ores thnt do not contain lead is, rediculous. The petition  simply asks for an export duty on ores that do uot contain lead, in order that the  product of the Rossland mines may .be smelted within the district. There would  be no need of the petition if Rossland ores could not be economically treated on  this side of tbe line; there is, however, abundant proof that [the pyrrhotite? and  chalcopyrites of Trail Creek division can be or cheaply handled at many points in.  Kootenay as at Northport. There would be no need, of the petition if Rossland  mine owners were liable to suffer from lack of competition between local smelters.  This competition does exist. There are three smelters,in the district with ah aggregate-daily capacity-of-1075-tons,--all -needingcopper^and-iron ores -The establishment of reduction works such as are contemplated by the Le Roi company, would  be additional competition in this respect. While the LeRoi would be the cbie'  basis of supply for this.smelter, it is well known that the company would not and  could not depend upon it solely. We have the positive assurance of the management that tbe Le Roi smelter will do custom work on a large scale. Thus would a  fourth smelter with a daily capacity of several hundred tons be added to the list of  competiug smelters in Kootenay.                                  ;  Every mine owner in the Trail Creek division is vitally interested in the establishment of local smelters. Th e low grade ores of that camp do not admit of,long  hauls. The more reduction works near the mines and in close proximity to each  other the better it is for the mine owners. ."'_.,  It is impossible, with the limited space at our disposal, to print the names of  those who signed the petition.. , As an instance of its popularity, 674 signatures have  been obtained in Nelson. ' An important feature in connection with the circulation  of the petition is the hearty support il is receiving from members of tbe Kootenay  Mining Protective association. This organization is composed of the principal  mine owners of Kootenay. *  At this writing it is impossible to ascertain tbe exact number of signatures that  have been attached to the petition at Rossland, Trail, Ainsworth, Pilot Bay, Kaslo,  Snndon, New Denver, Slocan City and Revelstoke,but the replies from these points  to telegrams from the Minek nre of the most satisfactory nature. The next issue of  the Miner will contain full details concerning the interest that is manifested in the  petition in outlying districts.    > ' .  The Waterworks.  ** Breckenridge & Lund, the contractors,  commenced work yesterday on the right-  of-way ot the water Hume between Anderson creek and the reservoir site. As  soon as all the" brush i3- slashed aiid  burned, the construction, ot the tlume  will commence. Work on the reservoir  will "commence in a few days.  LOCAL   NEWS.  re-  A New Power Company.  J. II. Bowes, acting as the legal  presentative of the Kootenay Air  Supply company has posted a notice  in the-court house claiming3000 inches  of water in Coffee creek. The pro-,  posed point of diversion is the confluence of Coffee and Krao creeks. The  water is to be used for supplying compressed air for mining and general  power purposes.  -Activity  at   Pilot   Bay.  Since the news ot the'negotiation for  the purchase of the smelter by the Brad-  ens was' first- published, Pilot Bay has  again become the scene of considerable  activity. Hotels and business houses are  being opened aDd many preparations are  made for tbe tradn that will come with  tht blowing in of the furnaces.

The new blast furnace of the Hall  Mines smeltev has worked perfectly  from the hour it was blown in and  during thc first 2-1 hours run 310 tons  of ore, coke and flux were used as foi- :  lows: Ore, 215 tons; linieslack, 23.  tons; refuse slags. 31 tons; black slugs,  IG tons; coke, 31 tons. The plant is  said to be thc largest copper smelting  furnace in the world. One important  feature of its construction is that it  saves over 10 per cent, in fuel over the  old furnace. From the 215 tons of ore  treated in the first 2-1 hours' run 22  tons of matte wore produced which  carries about 320 ounces of silver,per  ton and -IS per cent, copper.  Superintendent Paul Johnson is thc  designer, and to him is due the successful operation of the furnace. Thc  old furnace will soon beconverted into  a lead stiick for galena ores.  .The character of the ore now being  smelted is high grade and is very flux-  ible. There are 3000 tous on hand and  the daily output is said to be 275 tons  The mine makes a splendid showing  and tliere tis almost an inexhaustible  supply in sight. The hoisting works  have almost been done away with and  nearly all thc work is being -done  through the lower tunnel which opeus  almost at thc ore bins. r,One hundred  and fifty-six men are working in the  mine and S5 at Lhe smelter.  The amount of customs ore is increasing   every day from alL points  and thc Nelson smelter scorns to be in  -  active and successful coufpetition with  tho Trail smelter for  Rossland ores.  Prominent among the Rossland mines  that, are shipping to Nelson are the  War Eagle,  the  O.  K. and the Cliff.  The Great Northern from thc Lardeau  district is also sending in considerable--  shipments.    Some  lead ores from thc"  Lardeau have been received and largo  shipments are exgectcd as soonas tho -  lead furnace is in operation.    Improvements ot an  extensive nature will he ..  made for the rapid and   economical  handling of ore.       .t  '"-  The    roasters "and    revcrberatory  plant is operating  smoothly, and the  latter ��������� will probably -be working ;on.  copper in a week or ten  days.   There  are about 500 tons of white  metal  on-  hand which wMl bo shipped "to* ling-1" *  land as soon -as  it can he converted  into  blister copper.     Since the new"  blast-furnace has started   up,-there,  have been  a large number of visitors, '  and all remark the orderly,- methodical  way in which the work is done." Supt.  Johnson's theories, which worked  so  well  on  paper, work equally  as well  when put to the practical test.   The  furnace is past the cxpcrimental^stago.  and is ono of the most successful aver  built from every point of view.  .  A False Bumor.  .The publication of a statement in  the Spokesman-Review to the effect  that the Slocan Star mine will .shortly  close down owing to the low price of  silver and the United States import  duty on ores containing lead,.'caused  the Mixer to telegraph,, a request to  the Byron N. White company for a'  statement as to the company's intention in this respect. The following  reply was received this morning:  Sandon, Aug. 7.��������� To the editor of  the Mixer:���������Deny the report of mine  closing down.  (Signed) Bruce White.

The Dominion  will havo quite sufficient indebtedness  when the south-eastern portion of  British Columbia has received the  consideration from parliament that is  legitimately due. We cannot afford  another Pacific railway on the basis of  tho existing trans-continental system,  and the development of Kootenay  must not bo side-tracked.  KOOTENAY FIRST.  c Some Toronto capitalists have conceived the idea of establishing a rail  and  water  communication   between  - the main liue of the Canadian Pacific  railway at a point in Western Ontario  and the Yukon.  The proposed route leaves the C. P. R.  at Missanabie and runs in a northerly  direction to James bay, thc southern  extension .of Hudson bay, at the  mouth of Moose river, the distance  being about 250 miles.  The 1300 miles of salt water to Chesterfield inlet would then be crossed by  "a steamer service. Between Chesterfield inlet and Great Slave lake, 175  miles of rail would he needed. - Along  that lake to thc delta of Mackenzie  river is a stretch of 1-100 miles of navigable water. Fifty miles of railway  would connect the, Mackenzie delta  with the Porcupine river, a tributary  of the Yukon. Down theso conflueut  rivers there are 1,500 miles of navigable water to Behring sea. This is a  route about 4,825 miles in length, 4,200  miles of navigable water and 025 miles  ^fj^^wiy^.Withjth e^uWitionjil_ mixz  igahle section of the Yukon reached,  there would be an available stretch of,  transportation facilities about 5,500  miles in length. For tho first section  "between Missanabie and Hudson bay,  say 250 miles,- thc cost would be 87,-  500,000. It is proposed to ask the Dominion Government for a cash subsidy  of $7,500 a mile, or $1,875,000, and a  land grant already authorized for a  similar project of 12,800 acres per mile,  3,200,000 acres' in all. From tho  Province of "' Ontarjo " tho promoters expect ,$i-f()U0 por mile  or $750,000 in cash, and a land  grant as large as that asked fro 111 thc  Dominion. Kstiinating'the land at 25  cents an aero, the public grants asked  for would be !ji������,22.->,0(XJ, or $10,000 per  mile for thc northern section of thc  lirst link. " .,  ������������������ Tt is claimed that thefishing'trade of  . Hudson bay, and thc timber and mineral wealth along the route would  make profitable the construction of  the Northwest Transit System, as the  project is called. There may be some  plausibility in the contention that the  fishing and timber industries covered  by the lino could be made to pay; but  so far as the mineral resources of that  region are concerned, their value must  for the present be considered as highly-  problematical. Most assuredly no calculations should be based on the  placers of the Yukon, an assertion  that is best proved by the history of  all former placer gold excitements  previous to the recent Klondyke discoveries. In spite of the glowing reports, there is no reason to believe  - that the new camp will prove any exception to. the rule established in the  - palmy days of gold washers in California, Australia, along the Fra.scr river  and in Cariboo. If, in the vicinity of thc  Yukon, quartz ledges had been discovered and proved valuable, the mineral  resources of that district might be  worthy of more serious consideration.  If the promoters of the Northwest  Transit System feel confident that  their enterprise will pay dividends on  the money necessary to complete it,  it is difficult to understand why the  SITUATION IN THE STATES.  A large majority of the newspapers  published in the western portion of  the United States maintain that the  great issue to he determined at the  next presidential election is the issue  of honest,, constitutional, bi-metallic  money as against the single gold  standard. The concensus of opinion  is that upon this issue all  bi-metallic forces must unite  and remain united till the victory shall be over. Tliere appears to he  no important reason why the silver republicans, the silver democrats and the  silver populists may not stand together  on a bi-metallic platform. Thc western press express the belief that thc  United States government must act  for itself as regards the establishment  of a rate of sixteen, to one between  gold and silver coinage. But little  faith is placed in the Wolcott-Payne-  Stevcnson mission to Europe, and the  probable re-openlng of the Indian  mints for the coinage of silver would,  it is believed, accomplish nothing in  America for the principal of free coinage, though it might increase the  price of silver.  Our neighboi's to the south of the  international boundary have become  very restless in their long wait for  tho retm n of a prosperity, the prospect of which is made even more  remote by the recent tariff legislation  at Washington. The passage of the  Dingley bill has brought about a condition more favorable than ever to the  trusts and. tho none too scrupulous  multi-millionaires of Wall street. " In  the meantime the apparent sincerity  and lucid, intelligent utterances of  Mr. AV. J. Bryan are becoming more  understood and are more favorably received by\ those of small incomes.  From tho present aspect of the political situation in the United States, the  election of Mr. Bryan to the presidency in 1900 appears far from improbable . If thc country elects the  brilliant Nebraskan, we may look with  a reasonable degree of certainty for  the speedy rehabilitation of silver by  the Washington congress,^ regai-dless  of other nations.  It is said that the replies of the  genial Q. C. "jollied" Mr. Eberts to  such an extent that the attorney-  general failed for a while to know  where he was at. ^  From the same source The Miner  learns that Mr. Macdonald in no way  sought the commissioncrship to whicli  he. was appointed. The diplomats (?)  at the eapitol made Mr. Macdonald a  license and police commissioner in the1  hope that he would consider himself a  member of their party.  It is needless to say that Mr. 3Iac-  donuld cannot afford to ruin his prospects in British Columbia by affiliating with the "Victoria ringsters.  THE COPPER MARKET.  Thc copper market continues to  show much strength; " The average  monthly output of thc United States  is in the vicinity of 20,000 tons, of  which nearly two-thirds is exported to  Europe. The visible supply of copper  in Europe during the first half of June  decreased 1,371 tons. This would  make tho European consumption of  copper fully three times as great as  that of the "United States, for the European production has also increased  slightly. It is difficult to see where  American manufacturers would get  their supplies of copper from if business -was-to-nssume-anything���������like its  normal proportions. The large producers-are sending larger quantities of  copper to market-'than ever before,  yet while only one-third of it is con-;  sinned in the States, the price of the  metal and Uie prospects for an increase in demand arc such that the belief is warranted that materially higher  prices will be in vogue before another  six months has passed, notwithstanding tho increased production. There  is small probability of the export trade  falling off, and there is every probability of the home consumption increasing. ���������-        ' -.  HUNTING CANDIDATES.  The,Turncr-l-ithet-Dunsmuir crowd  is waking up to the fact that Kootenay  is the stronghold of the Opposition.  Thc unpopularity here of the present government is attributable to the  outuigeous treatment that the district  has received during thc past four  years. The people can' never be made  to believe that- the" million dollars  spent on the Victoria parliament  buildings is more beneficial than  would be the expenditure of one-fourth  that.sum on wagon roads and trails in  Kootenay.  At their awakening, the Victoria  ringsters arc confronted by a remarkable situation. 'In their hunt for candidates for the next election they have  failed to find a single man of any ability ready to act as one of their standard bearers.  A report from the Coast states that  when Mr. AV. A. Macdonald was in  A'ictoria recently, the ministerialists  swarmed around him like bees after  honey. They wined him and dined  him and flattered him. Attorney-  General Eberts was delegated to open  negotiations with him. How did Mr.  Macdonald view thc present political  situation? AVhat did Mr. Macdonald  think of. thc Opposition? Did Mr.  Macdonald intend going into politics  in "British Columbia? AVouldn't Mr.  Macdonald like to be prime minister?  AVould Mr. Macdonald try another  cigar? Please, would Mr. Macdonald  help them to fool Kootenay again?  LEGISLATIVE  REPRESENTA TION.  Colonel Baker sits in the legislative  assembly for East Kootenay, and is a  member of the executive council; but  he does not represent the popular sentiment of his district, and is very generally considered a dismal failure us a  cabinet minister.   ,  If the expectations and hopes of the  people arc fulfilled, and this Pooh Bah  is "fired" by Premier Turner, Kootenay will be without so much as nominal representation in the cabinet.  Yet the Kootenay pays more money  into the treasury than any four other  districts in the Province.  AVest and East Kootenay would only  be receiving proportionate recognition if the present representation in  the house and cabinet were doubled.  The Turner-Rithet-Dunsmuir administration is opposed to the increase  of the number of members for Kootenay, and Premier Turner, while seemingly anxious to get rid of Col. Baker,  dare not dismiss Messrs. Pooley, Martin and Eberts, the remaining cabinet  ministers.  It will thus be seen that Kootenay  can expect no favorable consideration  in this respect from the Turner government. . .  POLICE EEP0ET.  The New Denver Ledge claims that  there is no truth in the report concerning the sale of the Pilot Bay smelter,  and the Kaslo Kootenaian protests  that it has excellent proof that the  purchasers are the Omaha-Grant  Smelting"company. A number of  other newspapers have also published  reports in this respect and to the same  end as the Kootenaian. As a matter  of fact all of these gents are wrong.  The Miner's report is the only  correct one so far. The Kootenay  Mining & Smelting company's holdings  in this district were recently purchased  by the Braden syndicate.  An English exchange refers to Rossland as the "capital of Kootenay."  This is something new. Nelson is the  headquarters of all Dominion and  Provincial officials in the district, and  is the point at which all transportation lines in southeastern British Columbia center. The report of the custom house in another column of this  issue is the best proof that Nelson  leads all her neighbors in the volume  of business transacted.  The Victoria Colonist says that  Colonel Baker has done what he  could to open up Southwestern Kootenay. It would be interesting, to  know what method-the-honr'ininister  of mines will adopt to get even with  the Colonist, for showing up his incapacity. -  The plea is made by the Le Roi company that Northport would l>e a very  advantageous point' for smelting the  ores from the Colville' reservation  mines. The same may be said of the  many excellent smelter sites in Kootenay.  ..  Negotiations are going on lietween  the American bi-metallic commission  and thc government' of Great Britain  which renders jt extremely probable  that Great Britain will participate in  the Washington monetary conference.  It's a mighty poor newspaper that  will not unequivocally advocate the  establishment of industrial interests  iu the country from which it derives  support.  If the jedges and the kunnels would  establish their Rossland organ, instead of their smelter,'at Northport,  there would be no kick coming from  this side of the boundary.  gtatenteut   of   Cases   Tried   During  Ike  Houlli   of July.

The Kcnl Obxlaele.  There is no eastern prejudice agaiust  British. Columbia. Ontario, at least, is  in full sympathy with all the worthy ambitions of the westernmost province.  The politicians who tell the people of  British Colnmbia that eastern prejudice  is the great obstacle to the success of  schemes for the development of their section, are misrepresenting the facts.  JIhe policy of the Turner government  is British Columbia's real enemy. How  can British Columbia ask outsiders to  have faith in the immense value of its resources when it tolerates a Government  which treats these resources as if they  were trifles?  When the Turner Government changes  its policy, or the people of British Columbia change their government, there  will be no eastern prejudice to obstruct  any scheme for uniting the resources of  British Columbia and the money of the  Dominion in an effort to build np the  greatness of the Province.���������Toronto Telegram.

C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 7;-1897  o  fgg/i  MM*  A  OPINION  OF    THE    PEOVINOIAL  NEWSPAPERS-  OiiKirnliiK  llie   Miner's  Interview  Willi  the Chicl' Commissioner of Lund*  nnd Works.  (Kroin tho Victoria Tunes.)  Lot uuy unprejudiced mnu reud the  iuteiview of tbe chief commissioner with  the Nelsou MiNBit, and ask himself how  long a minister who would give utterance  to such seutimeDts would be suffered to  reinaiu in any other government under  the sun. In n despotic county he would  lose his material head. Under a responsible form of governmeut either his  ollicial head or tbat of Col. Baker would  roll into tbe basket. Privately Mr. Martin is entitled to entertain the Jlowest  possible opinion of his colleagues, but  when he gives wing to that opinion and  through the columns of a newspaper  allows the statement to go abioad that  he quotes the provincial,secretary's integrity at a very heavy discount, a strong  mun at the head of affairs" would say to  Mr. Martiu. ''No more be oflicer of  mine." Either that or Col. linker would  resign, for how can-the provincial secretary as- an "honest mau" consent to  longer bit nt lhe same council board--with  a colleague who, by inference, attacks his  honor. It is sin open secret that the  premier has tired of Col. Baker and his  aggrandizing propensities and he is  equally anxious lo rid himself of Mr.  Martiu. Loth are heavy loads to carry;  and if it. should turn out that the olii.'il  commissioner waa sent into the Koote-.  uays to iasnlt the provincial secretary  and so afford the premier au opportunity  oE clearing himself of both obnoxious  ministers at once, Mr. Turner is possessed of more political finesse than the few  who still believe in him give him credit  for. lie becomes the Iago of British  Columbia politics, for whether Martin  kill Baker or Baker Martin, or eacb do  kill, thc other, Turner is advantaged.  The throe can never plot together iigaiu.  Mr. Martin tells the Kootenaians that  they have eo leusou lo grumble, (to kick,  sis he elegantly expresses it) aud talks  lu and of ilieni as ifthey were a puck  of huunds atd' he their master armed  with a whip to lash them into a stateoi  . subjecting. Upon bis owu constituents he  casts the odious imputation of corruption  wheu Lie threatens to mortgage his farm  and spend $10,CCU iu his district to as-  mro his ������eturu ai the genend election.  What do the people .of Yale say to this  (Xtrnordiuary Ih.-eal*. Are they to be  bought and told, like Mr..Martin's live  stock, at to much per head? We feel  sure that, there will be an indignant ie-  Bpouse from all parts of Yale, and we  feel equally certain thnt after thc election Mr. Martin will not have au oppor-  - lunity to air his elcqunce or issue au im-  .-pudent raimifiGlo ass a minister of the  crown.  In the meantime the public await with  iuierest the solution of the conundrum,  "What is Mr. Turner going to do about  it?" -   THE DISCOVERERS.  A BI_. STiHKE.  Seven Feet or Sol III linlcna on l*|>i>er  Arrow Luke.  One of the biggest discoveries yet made  in British Columbia is just reported from  the Upper Arrow lake country. Alexander McMaster has returned from Lexington creek, a small stream running into  Fish creek, which flows into the northeast arm of the Upper Arrow lake, not  for from Arrowhead, and brought with  him &e ver a 1 large samples of ore from the  (Catsup, a claim bonded a year ago by  Mr. McMaster, C. A. Baldwin, W. K.  Myers, aud S. C Chisholm, all of Rosslaud. Mr. McMaster snys a solid body  of galena seven feet wide has been opened and that the hanging wall had not  been reached wheu he came away, . The  footwall is slate and is porphyry on the  hanging bide. The ledfie appears to be  fifteen feet wide���������that is, it is fifteen feet  between the slate and porphyry. It  remains to be determined whether the  solid ore extends from wall to wall.  ON THE DIVIDE.  Klrh Claim* Located at the Hemlwiilers or  Lemon initl Knslo Creeks.  W. G. Kobinson states that he and his  partner have located,a couple of fine  claims on the Dewdney line between the  tributaries of Lemon creek, the south  fork of the Kuslo, Woodbury and  Six Milo creeks. The claims are on the  top of the.divide, but although very high,  water and timber are in close proximity.  The vein is 2G inches in width and is  composed of a fine grained galena scattered through the quartz. Through the  maiu vein is a solid stringer of steel  galena from two to live inches in width.  The ledge has been traced over three  claims with, but little variation in its  quality. The stringer of galena assays  from ij!150 to 500 ounces iu silver. Mr.  Robinson states that lie and his partners  will at onee commence development  woik and rawhide the ore duriug the  winter.' Tbe claims are recorded uuder  the name's ot "Aldebarau" aud "PolurU."  Au effort is, being mude to locale the  ledge iu the valley.  'Cl  IF  UTTERED   BY   HIM" IS' NOW  DISPROVED.

The Saudon Watarworks nud Eleetric  Light^ company sent out an order last  week for a complete high pressure fire  system, which will .be put in place ae  soon as it arrives.

Supplies  Are   Being  Vurcbased  In   Spo-  kane   For  The  Conilnic  Winter Season.  Betweeu 2000 and 3000 meu are employed in the construction of tbe Nelson  and Lethbridge railway, between Lethbridge and Macleod, a distance cf thirty  miles. The company is also working  west of Macleod for 100 miles. Survey  parties are now strung out to tbe foot of  Kootenay Lake. Large gangs are clearing the right of way from Crow's Nest  pass to the crossing of the Kootenay at  Wardner. M. J. Haney, chief of construction of the road, is located for the  present at Macleod, from which place all  business in regard to construction is  conducted. It would seem that time is  the essence of the enterprise, as the International Transportation company has  a contract with Mr. Haney to deliver  about 800 tons at Wardnar, B. C, which  is the distributing point of supplies.  Much of this will be taken in before the  close ot navigation  on the Kootenay.  This is not the first time that Al. J..  Haney has been interested in great enterprises, as he was the successful managing partner for Mr. Onderdonk in the  construction of the Canadian Pacific railway, where the aggregate ef the contract  was upwards of $12,000,000, and a profit  of over $1,000,000 was realized. Mr.  Haney also built the "Soo" cnual for the  Canadian government, and is a man of  large means and great executive ability,  lie will commence his tour of inspection  about August 10, and will inspect every  rod between Macleod aud Kooteuay lake.  James F. Wardner is at present iu  Spokane puichasiug supplies for ^tlie  Canadian Pacific railway company's employees iu East Kootenny. The order to  be filled is 75,000 pouuds of oats, 500 tons  of hay, a car load of bacon, a car load of  Califo uia onions undone carload of white  beans.  T. G. Shui.nhuc8������y, vice president of  the Canadian Pacilic railway, will be in  Macleod on.or about the 10th inst. It is  expected that the divisional point on the  Nelson and Lethbridge road will be selected at that time.  Very few American laborers are employed ou the grade.  The length of the railway is 330 miles,  but trains will bo giving a fairly regular  service us soon as 200 miles are ready for  operation.   ',  ROMANTIC GIRLS-  IlinVrcurc In Four Tear*.

From the police an interesting story is  learned concerning the two girls who recently played their raaudolius so entertainingly in Nelson. .Although they appeared to be children and wore short  frocks, these charming musicians are  said to be nearly twenty years old.., The  girls come from Edinburg, Scotland,  and an. effort has been made by their  friends iu the old couutry to have them  return home. They are well educated  and have good connections, but are  rather inclined to be- romantic. The  elder one, this brunnetteT^eloped- last  May with a mnn named Read, who was  in Revelstoke ..when last heard of. The  younger, one, . Miss ��������� Jean Crawford,  a pretty blonde, accompanied the couple  to this country. Straitened circumstances compelled .the girls to  avail themselves of their musical talents,  with,the result that they are making a  tour of the Kootenay district, .giving  public, entertainments. Here and at  Rosslaud they met with great success.  Before they left Nelson, a cablegram ar  rived which revealed the history ot the  girls.* The police aud Magistrate  Crease endeavored to persuade the  yoimger one to return to Scotland; but  without avail. She stated that she liked  the life she is leading and intends to continue it.   Tbe girls are now in the Slocau  couutry.  # , i   -- _ -  Morning .Mountain .Mine.  A report has been received here from  Morning mountain to the effect that the  Morning and Evening claims show a  five foot ledge~afc a'depth of thirty feet,  and give an assay of 191 ounces in silver  and ������22.30 in gold. The company own  ing the property expects to sink the shaft  75 feet and then continue the tunnel to  intercept it. The tunnel is now in 178  feet. The probabilities are that a wagon  road will be built down Sandy creek to  a junction with the'' Columbia & Kootenay railway, and shipments will be com  menced as soon as it is completed. There  are now between 25 and 30 tons of ore on  the dump. The claims are crown granted  andare owned by the Morning and Evening Gold Mining Compauy.  The West Side claim on Morning  mountain, adjoining the Evening claim  ou the southwest, is shid to show a fire  to^seven foot ledge which is well mineralized and carries peacock copper and  some free gold. It is said to be one of  the strongest ledges on the mountain.  Wonderful Improvement.  When we look at First and Second  Avenues to-day. aud think what they  were a few weeks ago, we can well feel  proud ot the advancement our cily is  making.

Oorbin, president of tbe Spokane Fall's  & Northern system of railways, the Provincial press is unanimously iu favor of  Kootenay ores beinir sm> 1 ed on this side  of the international boundary. Mr.  Corbin's paper naturally advocates the  establishment of smelters io the United  States so that tbe Bed Mountain railway  may hove the benefit of banling the ore  of the Trail oreek mines.  The following clippings, taken at random, should be amply sufficient to convince the Dominion - government as to  the opinion of the people.  (From Vancouver Newa-Advorti-er.)  Every Canadian, especially the people  of British Colnmbia, is interested in seeing the ores mined in this Province, also  smelted and refined on this side of the  boundary line. Our interest in that  course is so plain, tnat it requires no long  reference tu the advantage which the  operation of smelters in British Columbia  will bring us, to make it clear. Otherwise, the field for-employment in the  redaction of the ores will be lost to our  people; the money paid out for wages to  the employees ot such enterprises will go  to build up foreign towns; foreign capitalists will reap the profit on smelting  c operations, instead of it enriching those  in this country.. All these things are so  plain that there is no room for any difference of opinion iu regard to them; we  are all also agreed that, if it be possible  our fiscal legislation should be framed in  such a manner as to achieve such a result.  .From the Vancouver World)  We have, to assume that the management ot the Le Roi Mining company of  Rowland bas fully decided upon establishing their smelter at Northport, some  miles south of the international boundary  line, on the Columbia river and upon the  line of - tbe Bed Mountain railway, of  which, company Mr. D. C." Corbin is  president, as he likewise , is of the Spokane- & Northern and Nelson & Fort  Sheppard lines. It was hoped that in  view of the great probability of the Federal governmeut placing an export duty  on all mineral-bearing quartz that tbe  muoh-talked-ot new smelter. would not  be erected in a foreign country instead of  in Canadian territory. Tbe general  belief is tbat the Federal government  should lose no time in enforcing the  power Parliament gave it last session in  the matter ot placing an export duty on  ores. ���������=  - (From the Rossland Rosslandor.)  Mr. Heinze. baa- offered the Le Roi  Company a sito and water power on the  Columbia river and- equally good-transportation rates: So far as the mine is  concerned we cannot see that at present  why a site on the Canadian Bide and at  the Columbia riyer ia leas suitable for a  smelter tban Northport, or ia it unlikely  _that���������-he.-Caua__.an -railway��������� companies  will give rate* on fuel and fluxes that  What un  Eaateru Newspaper Has lo Say  About Nelson^ Magistrate.  A recent issue of The Northern Advance, of Bame, Ontario, bas the following to say concerning the appointment  of Mr..E. A. Crease as police' magistrate  ot Nelson:  ��������� "Werejoiceto learn that our late towns  mun, Mr. E. A. Crease; bos been appoiuted tbe police magistrate of Nelson, a  rising city iu Kootenay B.C. A more  fitting' selection could not have been  made. A man o( high moral character,  in the prime of life, a barrister ot Os-  goode Hall, brought up, if not born^ in  Cunada, and fumiliar with the habits and  affaiis of the people, be is eminently  -fitted for such au oflice.  He has been well known to the people  of Barrie for many years as an earnest,  grave, studious man, liked and respected  by all --who new him. Amongst Mr.  Crease's earnest friends here is Senator  Gowan, who took a WBrm interest in him,  indeed no member of our community was  more fully under the tongue of good  report in every way than Mr. Crease.  The Attorney-General of British Columbia, with whom the appointment rested,  is to be congratulated on the happy selection he has made for "so important an  office in a new country, where moral  standing, firmness and honesty of purpose are as important as knowledge of  law.  We congratulate tbe community  amongst whom Mr. Crease will move and  oct. In-such positions it is of vital importance the individual should be an  exemplar of morals as well as an able  and efficient administrator of the law.

The Le Eoi mine management has of  late taken the classical attitude of Ajax,  and, with its, proposed smelter in hand,  is defying the Dominion of Canada  generally and the Province of- British  Columbia in particular.  (From tho Slocan City Sown.)  The "decision of the Le Roi company to  build its smelter at. Northport, seems  more than likely to force the Dominion  goTernment into putting that export'  duty on ores, especially in view of the  recent sale of the Pilot Bay smelter and  the strong probability of its being operated on a large scale within a very few  weeks. The Le Koi company has made  all its money out of Canada. It should  have sufficient gratitude to smelt its ore  here, and do its best to help the country  that, is helping it.  (From the Kaslo Kootenain.)  ��������� Col-Peyton, has been telling the reporters that as soon as the Crow's Nest  Pass railway is completed into Rossland  tbe Le Itoi company will build a smelter  in Canada and run the Northport shelter  as a castom smelter, and he does not hesitate to add that if there had been the  slightest chance of getting the railroad  connection at an early "date the smelter  never wonld have been built in North-  port at- all. Colonel, you ought to be  ashamed of yourself, when yan know all  the time that the contracts for building  the LeRoi smelter at-Northport were  signed six months ago, and that the pro-  oeeedings since were merely a little comedy designed to bluff the public. You  are either a sad old sinner, Colonel, or a  gadold wag.   Possibly both,  (From Quartz Creek Miner)  Mr. Heinze has offered to do the square  thing.with the Le Roi people, in fact the  whole Kootenay district has done everything in its power to have the Le Roi  smelter built.in British Columbia and if  it is built at Northport, asBeems possible,  it will simply be "America for the Americana" instead of "Canada for the Canadians."  The Miner learns from unimpeachable  authority that the Great Northern rail-  way company has fully decided to have a  direct all-rail line to Nelson at an early  date.  Ibe franchise granted at the last session of the legislature to St.* George  Hammersley and associates brought into  existence the Nelson and Bedlington  railway company. The franchise gives  the right-of-way for a liue from this city  to Bedlington, a point on the Kootenny  river at the international boundary. In  the scheme with Mr. Hammersley are a  number of prominent English capitalists.  This corporation has completed its financial orrongements for the construction  of the railway. For "sometime past, a  large force of" engineers bus been surveying the route of; the road along the  banks of. the Kootenay, Their work is  nearly finished and so far the result is  very satisfactory.  It is said that the Nelson & Bedlington  company has an understanding with  President Hill, of the Great Northern, to  the effect tbat he will commence the  construction of a railway from Bonner's  jFeny to. Bedlington .as soon as Mr._Ham_  -I-^IE-IjSO-N"  DOORS, SASHES and TURNED WORK,  BRACKETS and OFFICE FITTINGS  SATISFACTION  CVlAHANTEEp.  PRICES REASONABLE.  NELSON, B. C.  mersley'8 company is ready to build at  this end of the line. At.present there is  no way of ascertaining just what traffic  arrangements have been, completed  between the two companies, but it is said  that Mr. Hill will have the complete  control of tbe line as far as Nelson.  It is well known that President Hill  fully recognizes the importance and extent of Kootenay's trade. His influence  and money are responsible for the construction of the Kaslo" and Slocan railway which, while it bos proved a very  profitable enterprise, is not sufficient in  .itself for vigorous competition with the  recently established all-rail lines of the  Canadian Pacific in this district. The  unnnvigable condition of the Kootenay  river during the winter season is the  main draw-back of the Great Northern  Bystem of feeders.

However, the belief is that the  assessed valuation will be in the neigh-  hood of 81,000,000. At a Ruess, the improvements will show a total of about  8500,000 and if_the'_eyy is placed at tbe  limit of 15 mills, the revenue, upon the  above valuations will be 832,500. The  improvements in Addition "A" are placed  at 830,000.  ���������'BUtmt Bo a ThlHK."  Hon. George Bohun Martin.

Two-thirds  of the population, at least, is situated  about on a level with Baker and Vernon  streets. In almost every instance the lots  sold up to date have been purchased by  bona fide residents, who are and will  build houses for themselves. For the home-  seeker who wants a beautiful, healthy ,.'  location for a home, Hume Addition offers  every advantage.  Lots can now be had at the original low  price put upon them three or four years -  ago, when Nelson was but a hamlet.  Property in this addition will certainly  advance at least 50 per cent, in the near  future. "  Intending purchasers  ANDREW  METAL QUOTATIONS.  Aug.-  SlLVER..
