NO. 10.  SANDON, B. C, SATlTRDAY, AUGUST 13, 1898.  PRICE FIYE CENTS.  \  The  Hon.  I IN EHHEST.  Turner Government Resigned  Monday Last.   ,    ,.  II IIIII DE6HR0R.  Robt, Beaven Called on, to  a New Cabinet���������He Undertakes the Task  Form  Those of the people of the   province  who aro interested in   public'"' matters  were startled and surprised on Monday  and Tuesday by the report   that  Premier Turner and Lis cabinet handed in  their resignations  to   Lieut-Governor  Mclnnes ; and on the recommendation  of Mr. Turner, he called on   the   Hon.  Robt. Beaven to undertake the  formation of a new   ministry.     The   latter  gentleman   is now   at work   cabinet  making with the best material at his  command.   Mr. Beaven   was,   in years  J gone by."Premier of the Province, and  when his government was defeated he  ���������led the opposition up to four years ago  'Ho was an opposition cmdidate.in the  last general flections,but was defeated.  We have then the spectacle of a man  ,who is not now a member of the House  at all called on to form a government.  The Vancouver World gives as a precedent for this the recommendation of  the Hon. E. Blake, Premier of Ontario  in 1873 in favor of Hon. 0. Mowat.then  on the bench.   There is, however,' but  little analogy   between   the   two   in-  |4 stances.   At the time Blake was Premier of Ontario with a decided- majority  in the Ontario House, and at the same  time aFederal representative at   Ottawa.   The session   before an   act   was  passed abolishing dual representation,  that is preventing any man'fr&m having a seat in two parliaments ; and  as  Blake chose to take the Ottawa seat he  was forced   to   abandon   the   Ontario  House.   It is thus seen Blake was not  forced to resign   because   defeated   as  Turner has been.   He had a   majority  of the Local House behind him. and ab  such was an undisputed advis?r ot Hit;  Excellency.    Mr. Turner by his. resignation through"being defeated-in   the  country acknowledges he is not a dulv  constituted adviser of th'e Lieut-Governor.   In the1 Ontario case,   the   Lieut  Governor, on the advice of   a   premier  who had the* confidence of the country,  called upon a man who was not then n  member of the House-to be the successor to   that   premier, while   hero the  Licut.-Gjvernor presumably  takes the  of    an   ex-Premier,    who.    acknowledges by his resignation, he   has   lost  the confidence  of the   people   of  his  province; balls on a man not a member  of the House to bo tlie successor of   a  self-confessed defeated.premier.    Any  one with half a head can see the stri k-  ing difference   between   the "two   instances.  At tuis writing,Wednesday evening,  it is hard to foretel the result; but two  possibilities present themselves���������either  Beaven is possessed of the assurance  he can break in on the opposition forces and marshall the entire government strength completing a coalition,  or else he is floundering in the dark  hoping he can accomplish the tusk by-  some meatus not apparent to him when  f he assumed the responsibility.  Our. impression, at   writing, is  the  opposition is  united to man against  this slap   at the reputation  of  their  leaders in the House, and will not be  broken   under any circumstances, in  which  case Mr. Beaven  will have to  abandon his undertaking and advise  the Lieut.-Governor to look elsewhere.  It   seems   to us   that  in "this, course  though a peculiar one, the Lieut-Governor acted   within the constitution.  As governments   in Canada since responsible institutions were introduced,  never   die,      Turner   wis   his   legal  ^ adviser until a successor was  selected,  and if he represented   Beaven   could  command a majority of the House, his  Honor had aright to accept that recommendation.    If Beaven  fails   in   his  task, as he will if he cannot get some  of the members of the opposition   to  coalesce with him and the Turner faction, it will be his duty to recommend  a possiblePrc*iier to theLi 'ut.-Gevern-  cr   who   will   then   be   called   on  to  accomplish what he himself failed in.  We may add in this connection that  a Liberal Conservative convention  is  shortly to be called at Vancouver; and  doubtless at it   arrangements "will be  made to run a g neral election which  seems   inevitable, on   Federal   party  lines,which many of the Liberal papers  of the country seem desirous of forcing  on the province.   We have along said,  and repoat it now, tho   time has not  arrived for Federal   lines in our provincial politics, and even if they  are  forced, no government   can carry  this  province, no mattjr what its politics,  on the old methods of the Turner government.   We must have a reconstruction of tne past policj���������one that will  diminish tbe cost of all governmental  '}} machinery   and   such paraphernalia,  cut ofl this wasteful borrowing, reduce  our interests, and spend   more money  equitably over the province in opening  up the country. ' So far a*? we are concerned no matter what its politics are, !  we   will  support   no government  on '    any other lines. ' The" KdSlO   &  SlOCan  lhe intention doubtlcss'is to revamp ;  the old government���������for Mr. Beaven  to lead at the present with Mr. Turner  in a lower portfolio, lo reform later on  as the government got stronger, Mr.  ���������Turner to take the old post as Premier, j  like the shuffle in the days of George  Brown at Ottawa. We may here remark, however, that while Federal  lines may have their charms for some,  nothing but a complete reorganization  of past methods embracing simplification of civil service, a sensible reduction in extravagance, and abolute-  ]y better business methods can ever  carry the country.  LATER.  By.  Halls Mines.  VS.   the  Mr, Justice Reviews the   Authorities  an Exhaustive Judgm nt  It  ���������������.;  To sum up tlie situation, as light is  thrown on tlieprovincial muddle,Lieut.  Governor Mclnnes .dismissed Premier  Turner���������he says   so  himself.   He,  of  course, hud the legal   power to do so,  but the incident   more or less must lie  subject of  adverse   criticism.   Lieut.-  Governors are not to suppose cases nor  yet to listen through ' keyholes  for information.   Then on tho surface he had  no right to assume Turner was beaten  at the. polls.   He,   of  course, did not  know it, and only  had gossip  for his  guide in coming to such a conclusion.  He says his reason for selecting Beaven  was because lhe   opposition'were   not  united on a lca.der.On this he has been  guided by gossip'anel street rumor only  ���������poor planks for a Lieut. Governor to  walk on.   There is one thing his Honor  should have known, and 'it is this: no  matter which of the trio of oppositionists���������Martin,   Cotton   or   Semlin���������he  called on, he would have   found   him  with a   following   while   Beaven  has,  none.   He has not even a seat in  par  linmcnt,and is not-sure he c in get one  as h<- was beaten in his own'city in the  general elections   so   badly   that   he  came near losing wis deposit. "  Some pcopl<* are cruel enough to insinuate there" arc two sheets in  the wind in this astounding piece of  business ��������� one is that young  Mclnnes, son of his 'Honor, will  get a seat in tho cabinet, and the other  that it may retain silpreniaoy on the  Tsland.   _" " .  it becomes the duty of the country  as whole to resent the former,' and of  the mainland as a man to resent the"  latter. From appearances at writing,  it does not look as if Beaven could draw  from either government or the opposition ranks for his cabinet���������that he wiJI  have to get timber from without" the  House,which it is reasonable to believe  the people will not stand. Weak as  any man i . the elected opposition may  oppear to his Honor, a defeated man  in hid own city should appear weaker  still. To say the least of the entire  proceeding thougn within the constitution, itis surprising, and both gov< rn-  ment and opposition members should  discountenance it. In any event it is  apparent, Beaven even if he succeeds  in forming a cabinet, will have to  secure a dissolution before he can do  anything; and in that case .the people  of the country should show both  Beaven and his Honor it is they who  govern and they alone.  LATEST.   '   ,  Up to 3 o'clock yesterday Beaven  had not succeededln forming his cabinet. It was rumored at Vancouver an  effort was made lo secure a coa ition  of Turner, Semlin and Beaven, but  there is no confirmation ol it.  A Diocese for the Kootenays.  At the next synod of the Anglican  church, which meets shortly in Now  Westminster, West and Eas; Kootenay  and probably Boundary creek, will ne  made into a diocese. '1 he inntltr is  one which is lipe lor action by that  body. The territory contains almost  one-fourth of the population of the  province���������that population is_ rapidly  increasing���������its territory is large and it  is quite evident now, with so, many  places in which services sire held at  such groat distances apart that already  a bishop would find himself very easily employed in all his duties. The  question hat. been discussed for some  time anel the feeling in Kootenay is  believed to be practically unanimous  in favor of the change.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following is a list of ore shipments over the K. & S. from Sandon  for the week ending August 12 :  mine. ' TONS.  Payne 150  Slocan Star  GO  Ruth .'   20  Last Chance .'. 40  Coin.....  ,    6i  Total .". 290]  At the recent sittings of the supreme  court an important c.ise was tried,'  with the Kaslo & Slocan r.iilwayi as  plaintiffs and the Hall Mines Co. as  defendants. The point, at, issue was  whether limestone was a mineral within the miming of the act, and cons?  quently whether land containing limestone could be staked and held as a  mineral claim. Tho text is as lollows:  Kaslo & Slocan Railway Company  vs. The Hall Mines, Limited.  The facts on which the parties rely  are set out in the special case ai d the  questions'submitted to the court are:  First���������Whether the limesj.onciu dispute is owned by the plaintiffs or de-  fonclents. ,  . "Second���������Whet! er limestone can   bo  located under the mineral act.  'Third���������Whether   limestone   is    included in the grant   to  the  pbuntifis  nnder'the Kaslo & Slocan railway sub  sidy act, 1S92, and amendments.  At to the second question, tho mineral act, 1891, has defined what shall  be minerals for the purpose of the act,  and tho legislature has included in the  list substances .which arc chemical  products of substances" which can  hardly bo classed as minora Is us well  as elements. - ,  The ordinary definition of   minerals  is that it-includes all substances which  can bo got frum underneath  the" surface of the earth.  Tlie definition of Mcllish,   L. J.,   in  Hoxt vs. Gill, L: R. 7, Ch. 702,   is   not  i ' '  applicable to-the present case,   as   wo  are govcrn?d by our own statutory  definition, and in the several oases which  have been considered in  the; English  courts there have   been moru   or   lest,  differences of opinion ; for instance, in  Darweil vs. Eoper, 24 L. J., Ch. 779,   it"  was decided that minerals were something   that  necessitated   tho   use   oJ  shafts, drifts, or  tunnels   for  the   extraction.   In Bell vs. Wilson, 35   L. J.,  Ch. 337,   Vice   Chancellor' Kidderley  held thai freestone .v.u, not a ..mineral,  for minerals were something   that   required   mining.     The   appeal   court  overruled this definition   as   to   freestone, and in'Hoxt vs. Gill, above, Mcllish, L. J., held   that   profit   was   the  criterion of wheth> r a   substance   extracted from beneath the surface   was  a mineral or not, but this criterion was  dissented from in Provost of Glasgow  vs. Farie, 13 Appeal, 057,  and   it   was  thero considered by the lord chancellor  that James', L. J., definition  in   Hoxt  vs. Gill was the  morl   Accurate,   viz.;  That "mines and minerals" is a   question of fact what the  words   mean   in  the vernacular of the   mining   world,  the commercial, world and   owners   at  the time they were used, and   it   was  pointed out that a   stone quarry   was,  according to the   definition   of  Johnson's Dictionary, a   stone   mine,   and  that   slate   mines    were    in    reality  quarries.  Such being the position of the authorities on the general term minerals, I must pee what the statutes say  are minerals.  Section 2, after enumerating various  substances, proceeds on any combination of the aforesaid elements with  themselves for any other elements. If  therefore, I find that limestone is a  combination of any one of the substances with some other substance,  then it'falls within that definition.  Limcstono is stated to be composed of  lime, which is carbonate of calcine  and oxygon, silica, iron and magnesia.  Iron and magnesia arc both among the  so-called elements Calcine, which is  not mentioned, is ono of the components of lime, but would be covered by  the word, or in combination with other  elements. i  In addition to this, in the next, paragraph, limestone, marble, clay or any  building stone when mined for building purposes, shall not be considered  as a mineral , within the act. The  ordinary meaning of this language is  that if these substances areniined for  any other purpose than for building  the} would be considered as minerals '  It-is well here/to observe that'the- act  used the term ''111111001." Limestone,  marble and building stone are usually  quarried and not mined, and it appears to .ne that the verb to mine used  in section 10 and other portions of the  act includes quarrying and other modes  of extracting the minerals than the  main u.������e fcr underground workings.  1 am, therefore, of the opinion that  the second question must be answered  in the'flflirmative.  As to tho first question lho grant to  the plaintiffs is subject to this proviso,  that the crown can authorize any person to enter upon the granted lands to  raise and get thereout  any 'minerals,  precious or base, other than coal.  These later words, precious or base,  as Applied to ini|ir,rals,seem tome ver}'  inappropriate. Tlie term is applied to  metals, but I do not know what a  precious or base metal is or what is  meant in using such language. I  think the grant cm be read, omitting  those words, without injury to the  sense, and the question is what is  meant by the term minerals in this  grant. Whether the definition contained in the mineral act applies or  not appears to mo of little importance.  The term used must be read in its ordinary meaning, which wonld certainly  include limestone. I see nothing in  the grant(that mftkes it subject to the  mineral act., The defendi nts, having  taken up a claim on the land of the  plaintiffs, the\ are there as licencces  of the crown holding a lease for a year,  and by virtue of such license have the  right to extract all mineral as defined  by the mineral act, complying with  the formalities reqniicd, which, in this  case, are undisputed. lam, therefore,  of opinion that the first question must  be answered in the defendant's favor.  And as to the third question 1 think  the id iintiff's held the grant subject to  the proviso before n ferred to.  The words of the grant are peculiar,  lhe grant conveys the land with the  appurtenances unto the said company,  its successors and assigns forever. The  usual rule that a grim in fee in construed against the grantor is reversed  when the crown is the grantor. Tlie  grant is in foe simple. The term successors as words 01" limitation are not  necessary in the grant to incorporation  aggregate. They had no force to grant  nnd this company arc entitled to a fee  simple as freeholders subject to the  proviso and limitations contained in  the grant.  Judgement will be for the defendants  with costs.       '  M. W. TYRWHITT DRAKE, J.  Juno 2b, 1S98.   '   ,    i������3Ct������i    IAT1 IU.  i mm silver go.  Their  Property Showing  Up Well  Under Development.'  Because this company are not shipping, merely developing and getting  their orek blocked out for the tram and  concentrator to be built within the corporation limits, in the early spring, as  much is not heard of their operations as  of other companies Still they have  some 25 men steadily at work and giving  'a good account of themselves, as they  have several thousand tons of ore ready  on the dump. All told the property  consists of nine claims, one oi which is  the-lvanhoe that used some time ago to  be a celebrated property and is only improving with age and development. As  tbe, crow lies the distance is not more  than a mile and a half from the city,  though from Reco ave. it looks well up  in the everlasting clouds.  So far, Ihev have driven three tunnels  and at present have drifted ^00 feet on  the lower level at a vertical depth of  about -100 feet. In this they hare a 20 ft.  vein of concentrating ore. At the present they are building a bunk house and  other accommodations for,some oO men,  and will have a sleigh road ready for the  early snow, which they will utilize during  the winter, holding all shipments till the  tram and concentrator are ready in the  early summer.  The past week they have also commenced operations on the Yakima, one  of the Sunshine group,, that promises  well. High up as, the Minnesota Silver  Co.'s properties are they, are beneath  the Adams and Canadian groups, which  may use the tram and the concentrator  of the former comjiany when they are  in full operation.  Full List of Election Protests.  John  HcRae Gives  His  offings.  Yersion  John L.McRao,a well known Snndon-  ite, who caught the northern fever last  winter returned the other day, a wiser  but not a wealthier 'man, though he  took means enough with him to do  something if thai something was to be  done.  He too'e the boat at Vancouver   and  in1 due course arrived at Glcnora going  up the Stickeen river.     A-<   overland  drive of ISO miles is necessary to reach  Teslin lake.   Tne government agents  say the distance is but 130 miles  and  there is a good load ; but the distance  is 50 miles farther, and   neither  road  nor trail as the prospectors make it in  their travel across   the   country,   and  naturally one of the   worst   pieces   of  rough and rocky country   possible   to  find.   In some parts   of  this   district  agriculture can bo carried on   with   a  degree of success ; but as there   is   no  permanent settlement of any kind tho  venture would bo very risky.   In short  there are not more than 200 actual residents al Glenora   and   many   less   at  Teslin Lake, and these   aro   searching  for some means of escape.  .Thompson,  of Trail, is at   Glenora with   a   newspaper but stranded, and   most   others  strapped.   While there were hones   of  the government R. R. things had a degree of buoyancy,   but   suddenly   collapsed when the Senate sat on the project.   Mr. McRae went40 miles farther  up the Hootaliriqua river, only to find  things uniformly the same.    What the  future may do lor the   country   it   is  hard to say, but so far there is no mining done worthy the name.   Over this  Teslin lake trail the  freight   is   forty  cents per pound.  Mr. McRae says lie never met a man  in all his time there satisfied with his  lot and prospects ; but eighty percent,  of them aro completely stranded ; and  this was also confirmul by Mcaker,  the hop king of Washington state, who  did considerable business in supplies  through there.  Mr. Rue know little of the condition  of things up Dawson i\ay but was convinced that out of the o0,000 people  who woiit in not more than one out of  every 3(10 brought home any money,  and 75 per cent or moic of them were  rendered helpless. The coast papers  lied outright as to the returns with  money, as many to iiis knowledge  credited with profitable finds v,ere  literally without moans, and they told  him so. There is gold up there certainly and a few are finding it ; but  nothing like the number who are re  ported as rich'.  Mr. M'iRae after seeing the northern  elephant, has decided to settle here' in  his former business.  Twenty-five petitions have now been  filed with Registrar Drake, of the Supreme Court at Victoria, protesting  aga'nst the return of members at the  recent provincial elections.'

It extends for a miieor more  (along the yalley of Carpenter creek,  and has one important street on which  its principal stores are located.   Far  up a gulch, directly in front  of the  town, one notices an important mine,  the Slocan Star,  which orings  its ore  by tram car   to a  concentrator some  distance   below the mine,   and   from  there to the railway wagons are used  to move  the   concentrated  ore.   The  Ruth,   Reco,   Wonderful   and   Payne  mines   are near by, and some others  many of which are paying ivelJ.   Good  hotel accommodation   is found  here.

Tho Sandon business mon have  had a heavy pull of it since the Klondyke craze struck tho plaeo Ubt fall, not  because they were worse ofl than other  communities, but because much of their  transient trade disappeared in the interval. In fact a year ago tlie miners began to taye for tlie Klondyke, and since  then times havo not been gejod. This  spring a new set of men have gone to  work; but as many of them weio in  debt, owing to being a long time out of  work before that, their earnings elid not  go into general circulation for some  months after.

He positive]j' refused to be interviewed by a reporter, for publication,  as he said e-vvry man's sxperience, expectations and realizations might not  be the same as his.  He opened a business there, however, and sold it as" soon as he could  without loss,and is not going to return  again. Though Glenora and Teslin  Lake have had as many as 2,000 each,  of a floating population, neither of  which has more than 200 of an actual  resident population, and the business  that more could turn 'their havds to,  is not easily seen.

He has seen the B irtlett Bros, and  thinks that in the packing business  they arc quite busy, but of their profits  he cannot say though they get twenty-  live cents per 100 pounds for fifteen  miles.

THE MINING REVIEW.  SATURDAY, AUGUST 13, 1898.  SANDON, BRITISH COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY ...AUGUST 13, 1898  Subscription ������2.00 Per Year  Strictly in Advkace.  UNDUE   HASTE.  The indelicacy of some prints is  surprising. There are several in this  province to-day urging the Lieut-governor to dismiss Premier Turner from  office. ' Politicians and those ' who  study political matters believe he was  defeated in the general elections ; but  how is the Lieut.-governor,who is supposed to pay no attention to the political phase, only the constitutional  side, of every public matter, to know  to be a fact what the opposition sim-  ��������� ply believes to be a fact.  In the natural course' of things, the  House is not likely to meet before  January or February next, and in the  interval several protests may be tried,  and new elections held to fill the  vacancies. Supposing that Turner  were to gain in these by-elections, or  that he were to resign now and these  elections were to result adversely to  the present opposition, things would  be in a pretty mess when the House  met. Or supposing again that one or  two of the opposition members were  in the interval to become disgusted  with the undue haste in this matter of  the opposition press and support Turner when the House met, how again  would things stand ? If Turner and  associates saw themselves overwhelmingly beaten at the polls, or even  beaten so badly that' they had no  hopes of meeting parliament with a  majority, resignation would be their  proper course ; but we again assert in  view of the closeness of the elections,  that Turner and Co. are violating  neither constitution nor usage in holding on to office until they see what  may turn up between now and the  meeting of the House. The Review  did all it could in decency to defeat  the Turner government, and will do  all it can in decency - to keep it defeated until the opposition has a fair  trial, but at the same time we cannot  endorse undue haste and anxiety for  oflice in the opposition press.  means to , secure the desired end  might be fully considered. We think  the papers of the district ought to act  as one to bring about such a union of  interests.  Word comes that some of the government officials in the Yukon have  been trafficing in mining claims to the  prejudice of prospectors. As a matter of fact these reports are always  exaggerated, though they rarely rise  without some foundation in fact. An  official has in all such matters, the inside track, and if allowed to speculate  can always take the advantage of  ordinary speculators. As they are on  the ground they can travel without expense to themselves and have every  opportunity to know what every one  else is is doing. This places them on  the ground floor, if they are allowed  to take the advantage of their opportunities. Besides this, while employed on salaries they do not" lose  their greed for further gain���������they  carry it with them as if they were  really the speculators themselves. It  is to be hoped, however, the government will look into the matter, and so  far as there is a foundation for the  rumor, take effectual steps at once.  THE BIG WHITE WOLF  'BACRED    TO    THE  HOODOO TO  INDIANS,   BUT  PALEFACES.  MACARTHUR-FORREST PATENTS.  The   Cyanide of  Potassium Process   of  Extracting Gold  Is to Become  an   Important Factor.  It would not be amiss if the mining  men of the Kootenay would have the  question of exemption from duty on  their or:s shipped to the United  States brought before the Quebec conference. It is a clear case that the  industry in this country is at a serious  disadvantage���������practically handicapped but for the richness of the product,  and every effort ought to be made to  have our disabilities as a mineial producing locality fully removed. Free  entry of our ore into the U. S. would  not be the same or of the same effect  as a protective duty on this side or a  bonus to the producers ; but it would  be a long step in the way of equalizing  on both sides; and we think that in a  fair field, with no favors, mining could  be,rendered quite satisfactory here.  If our people had free access to  American markets, as the Americans have to ours, it would  relieve them of many of the objections, but would not give us what  we want since Canada and the States  are both exporters. What we want  more particularly is such legislation  on this side as will free smelting and  manufacturing interests from unfair  competition, that ' we may have as  good a chance as others in the markets of the world with the manufactured  article. While producing ore employs many, manufacturing employs  many more, and we require the latter  population as well as the former.  The News heads an article "Slocan  City all right." This is wholly unnecessary as every town in the Slocan  country is all right. Some of them,  in their history, through local causes,  may have established more business  - houses than subsequent events showed  there was actual business for at the  time, and have suflered relapses ��������� but  the ore is in the Slocan country, and  capital will be forthcoming to take it  out. This operation requires business  houses, and in many of the towns  later on more houses than there are  at present. We think some joint effort of the residents of the Slocan  country ought to be made, to show  capitalists abroad what wealth there  really is here awaiting the operations  of the practical miner. Enough eflort  has never been put forth to convince  the outside world that Rossland is not  the whole of the Kootenay country.  We would like to. see a conference of  those representing the mining interests  of the   Slocan,, that the   ways   and  Some time ago it was announced  that the government of New Zealand  had so far,admitted the validity ol the  MicArthur-Forrest patents on the'iise  of cyanide of potassium for gold extraction in that country, to pay the  company a round cash sum to secure  possession of their monopoly in the  Colony. The purchase was much criticized by influential mining journals  on this continent, and if. was pointed  out thai while tbe Mac Arthur-Forrest  patents had been upheld in a few  other countries, in New Zealand alone  had the company received Govern  ment support anel the process been  converted into a- State monopoly, l!  now seems, however, that the action of  the New Zealand administration was  not so ill-advised or foolish as at first  appeared, and moreover, that the government purchase of these patent  rights'was not made with tho intention of drawing.a revenue from the  monopoly, .but with the view of benefitting the mining community by ultimately removing all charges against  miners in connection with the use ol  the process. Meanwhile all mine-  owners using or proposing to uso the  cyanide treatment, are required to  take out licenses from the Mining  Warden of the district, and to pay  royalties on the gold obtained, the tax  being arranged on a sliding scale, low  grade or $10 ore or underpaying 15  cents, $20 ore 50 cents, and over these  values at the rate of 2J per cent, per  ton. But these charges are to-cease  directly the sum (������10,000) advanced  by the government to extinguish the  Australian Gokl-Recovery Company's  rights, is repaid i>y this system of taxation into the treasury, and it is estimated on the basis of the royalty returns for the quarter ending March  1st, that tho tax will not be longer in  force than a period of four to five  years. If for no other reason, the  course adopted by the New Zealand  government in the present instance,  has, we think, much to commend it on  the grounds of ordinary fairness. It is  known, of course, that the courts ol  Australia and South Africa have  refused to recognise the Mac Arthur-  Forrest patents, and because the  Cassel company were demanding exorbitant royalties from mine-owners,  these decisions were received in those  countries , with the greatest possible  satisfaction. Nevertheless, it is ad-  milted that the experiments and  researches of Professor JVJacArthur  resulteel in the introduction of a per-  fecteel process of gold extraction which  revolutionized the gold mining industry and succeeded in bringing South  Africa and West Australia into the  foremost rank of gold producing countries. While Professor MacArthur, it  is true, was not himself responsible  for the discovery that gold is soluble  in cyanide of potassium he was, however, the first to apply the principle to  commercial uses, and the company acquiring the patent rights are, it seems  just to conclude, to some extent entitled to benefit. The New Zealand  goverrment have evidently so regarded  the mailer, and instead of allowing  the Gold Recovery company's right.s  to become a matter for litigation, have  taken the initiative, at the same time  protecting the mine owners us;ng the  cyanide process in the colony.  We have referred to i his matter at  some length, because it is possible  that ere long the question of the Cassel company's rights to receive royalties may become an important issr.e  in British Columbia. At more than  one mine in the country cyanide  plants are now being installed, and if  the treatment proves successful in  these instances, it fol-ows that the  process will come into more or less  general use for the treatment of ores  of the same class toroughout the  province. | ,  When Jlui Jacob") Throw Up a Job nt.

In IS03 ho was guiding a paity of gon-  tleraon, from Now York, among whom  was the lato Koscoe ConklinK, through the  wilds of Elk county. A camji was mado  on the head waters of the Clarion, and tho  party mado preparations to hunt for deer  the next day. Jacobs had beon ranging  around the camp und came in lato.

After somo questioning as to his  sudden resolution ho explained "ho had  scon a big white wolf, and it was bad  (iiodicine for Injuns,," so, gathoring up  his traps nnd culling his two dogs, ho dis-  appeareil in 11 ie daikness of the woods.  Next morning McGnrty's post was lound  without any difficulty and tho party hospitably received. Thoy told their story,  und JlcCarty, u man of Co, who had passed  his lifo on tho frontier, said: "So .lim  seed tho whito wolf again. , I've heard of  tho vurmiiir, 50 years ago, but novel" seed  It, nor do I know of any white man who  has, but Jim bus no doubt, for he ain't u  liar or boaster, and all tho Injuns think it  bad luck."  Twenty miles east of McCiirfcy's, on  Beaver creek,' lived Bush Kemble. Ho  was a huntor and trapper, cultivating  enough land to raise corn for tho family.  Ho had a small flock of sheep that he hnd  succeeded in raising, although bear and  panthers woro plenty in -tho country  around. But his luck changed. Tho sheep  begun to disappear.

Tho wolf  caught another chicken.> The dog was an  old bear hound and ganio. IIo rushed on  tho beast, whilo Buth, resting tho gun on  ono of tho projecting logs'of tho cabin,  took a long aim und fired. Tho wolf gavo  a leap in tho uir andcamo down plump on  tho dog. In an instant tho boast had disappeared and poor Boston lay dead with  his head half bitten off.  Tho nest day Kumblo and two others  started out to hunt down tho "whito  wolf." As a luro tho foreqnurter of a doer  had beon hung in.the woods a few miles  away, and in the early morning they found  this gono and on tho slightly frozon snow  woro plainly seen tho big tracks of tho  wolf. Thej" had IS fine dog3 who hunted  by scent, and all wero confident that "Jim  Jacobs' white wolf's hldo would como to  the tanyard."  Tho trail led northwest ovor a range of  hills covered with laurel, utterly sterilo.  Tho dogs ran freely, keoping tho men well  up to tho collar. About midday .thoy  found pheasant feathers on tho trail���������tho  wolf hud snapped up ono for lunch. Thoir  gamo was heading for Bakers' rocks.

Although thero was no sun, it was perfectly clear, and there was tho wolf scon  through tho thin wintry air.

An English clergyman, who wus n hard  unioker^was cuied of tho ta&tu for tobacco  by a suddon twingo of conscience.  He was sitting ono day in his library  with ail expensive cigar in his month  when tho name of ono of his oldest friends  was announced. The visitor, when greetings had been warmly exchanged, confessed that ho had como upon a begging  errand.  A story of pathetic distress was told,  and an urgent appeal was mado for immediate reliof. Tho clergyman was n warm  heartod, generous man, and his hand was  pluugod at onco into his pockot, but ho  found only a few shillings there. IIo thon  fumbled In his desk for his checkbook, remarking to, his frienel that it was a vory  sad and urgent, case and that he would do  what ho could, but when ho looked at his  bank balunoo his fuca changed color. Tho  account was nearly overdrawn already.  "I am very soiry," ho said. "I can only  give you a beggarly sum.' I did not know  how poor I was."  The check which ho drew wus only a  fifth of the uniount which was needed.  Ho mado many apologies for, giving tho  visitor so littlo money when his heart was  deeply touched, and ho longed to eto more.'  Whon his friend hnd gono, ho relighted  his cigar, but it sccnied to havo n bitter  tasto, and he took out, a fresh one. Bcforo  striking a mutch ho jotted down on paper  the price of tho cigar, and tho number  which ho usually smoked a day. Ho found  that tobacco was costing him 5 shillings u  day and over ������00 a yoar, or about  $���������150 in American money. The amount  which ho hud given to his old friond in  diro distress roprosonted tho cost of 20  days' smoking.  Tho clergyman was an impulsive man.  Instead of lighting* his fresh cigar of the  ohoicost brand he throw it into the firo on  his hearth. Ho was so deoply impressed  with tho thought that a littlo self tloniul  on his purfc would havo enabled him to  holp an old friend in great need that ho resolved stonily never to smoko again. Being a mon of, strong will, ho was as good  bs his word.  This good man's tobacco bill was a  heavier ono than is ordinarily paid. But  many a smoker would bo surprised if ho  were to count tho cost of his own self .indulgence in tobacco.  A recent investigation has shown that  oho studonts of a military academy in  England expend enough money on eigar-  attes to provide for the' education of 40  young men too poor to havo tho same advantages. The effects of tobacco on health  may be^disputcd, but no smoker can deny  thut'smoking is u wasteful habit, and that  thoro would bo large compensations for  self denial.���������Youth's Companion.

THE MINING REVIEW.  $  Supplies   on  the   Stickeen-Teslin  .Trail.  difficulties that awaited them on leaving the Slicke<*ri'river.���������B. C. Mining  Record.  Those responsible for the circulation  of the reports, this early sprinp;,resnec-  ting the passibility of the Stickeen-  Teslin trail, are guilty of tbe unjustifiable booming of thatroute,which was  d scribed as pre-eminently the best  for summer travel to the Yukon gold-  centres, have a great deal to answer  for, and it is a matter of regret that a  Victoria newspaper whose editor, too,  temporarily served as a director . of a  ; Klondy,ke   transportation    company,  misrepresented���������though through ignorance and without malicious intent, we  ' are willing to   admit���������the   facts   concerning this^rail in such an   uncalled  for manner.   Sodip   blame,   moreover,  it appears, attached to the Provincial  '      Government officials for   the   present  deplorable   condition   of  the    Teslin  trail, as from what we can   learn,   the  - large*- ppropriation granted for its construction from the river  at Telegraph  creek   to   Teslin   lake,    was    utterly  wasted, the contractors most   scandalously scamping the work, and yet receiving payment in full to the extent  of the grant.   Mr. Dennis,   a member  of Messrs. MoKcnzie & Mann's Engineering Corps, recently   returned   from  this section of the country, states etn-  ' phatically that the trail from  Glenora  to Teslin, instead   of  being, an   open  way over a priarie countrv, is nothing  but an Indian  trail   oyer  mountains,  through swamps  and   heavy   timber.  Mr. Dennis describes in detail the   appalling condition of the 3,000   miners,  * many of whom have lost   every   cent  they had in the world-in trying te get  'to the Klondyke by this route.  Hundreds of outfits have been lost,  ��������� and many of the stranded miners are  approaching a destitute condition.  The wail from the Stickeen route began last spring, just before the river  opened, and after several- hundred  miners in small parties and large companies had made the start from Wran-  gel, hoping to reach Telegraph creek  over the ice. , Disappointment and  hardship are all they encountered.  This is a most unfortunate state of  things, but it is no use attempting to  gloss over hard fact's, and it Ji-* unde-  ' niable that under existing conditions  the Stickeen route is-well nigh impracticable. This, however, is Mr.  Dennis' account of some of Jiis experiences : "While encamped along the  trail in-thovaJley of thcliUleTataliarjJ  * about thirty-five miles from   Glenora.  * \tc were cut off from" all communication with the outside world for a period  of nearly six weeks. During the time  all progress along the trail had ceased  "on account of the breakpp of the river  and the condition of the snow   on  the  first summit.   By May 15th occasional  small outfits began to dribble through.  These men were taking in only   a few  hundred pounds.distributed upon their  own backs and upon their dogs.   With  the drying out of the moss the stream  of gold seekers swelled, and one   could  not but marvel at   the , ingenuity displayed by theKlondykcrs in their  attempts to ' transport  baggage through  the wilderness.     The   roughness .and  narrowness of the trail demanded   the  use of one-wheeled   vehicles.     As   a  consequence, unicycles in , all  shapps  and forms were fashioned   rudely  out  of the poor material   at   hand.     Men  . were- tooling   various   wheelbarrows,  wrought in the woods,   with   enly   au  axe for work.   With a stoufc'man pushing and well-trained dog   pulling,  300  pounds could be taken over  the   first  milps of  the   trail.     No   uncommon  sight was a wheel five or  six   feet   in  diameter, with a  load   placed   in   a  framework below and to each   side   of  , the axle, bringing the centre very low.  Such a contrivance required a man in  front and one behind, nnd could carry  as high as 500 pounds.     In some eases  a horse might be seen in   place   of  a  man in front.   Here it would require  several men to keep the 'go   devil'   in  an upright position, or to hold it back  on a heavy down grade.   The sharpest  grades are the descent to tlie valleys of  the Little and Big Tahltan   rivers   respectively.   In the case of  the   latter  outfits were  lowered   by   block   and  tackle down a   declivity   of 150   feet.  By June 1st pack trains were  attempting the long pull over, and were finding the trail fairly serviceable for fifty-  five miles, or as fast as Sheslcy   river.  Here the mountain trail substantially  ends, and the pathway winds   through  willow and muskeag. swamps,   out of  which mosquitoes rise in sanguinary  hordes and plague the wayfarer beyond  endurance.   Any modern   treatise   on  contemporary martyrelogy, in order to  be comprehensive,   should   catalogue  the experience of men started   along  these stretches of the route to the gold  fields.  Men begin to ask themselves how it  was that they got side-tracked in  this wilderness, and thus lost a whole  season in a vain effort to get to the  gold mines Some men will tell you  that they wished to thoroughly prospect the Hootalinqua route with their  eyes open. Others will tell you that  they could not consider Chilkoot or  White Pass without a shudder; but  the majority will tell you that they  were booked through to Wrangel or  Glenora with the impression that a  wagon road had been constructed, and  without the faintest conception oi the  ��������� ���������    LIVER COMPLAINT.

MENTION   TRAVELLING   PUBLIC.  Friendly Advice.  Sir James Winter, premier of Newfoundland, had a short interview with  Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, while in London, in which the secretary of state for  the colonies suggested that Newfoundland would gain much advantage by becoming a province in the Dominion federation. , -  In rejily to a question put by Mr. AT.  C. McArthur in the House of Common's,  Mr. Chamberlain replied that the reduced tariff offered by Canada no importations of sugar applied only to raw  sugar produced in Great Britain and her  colonies. Mr. Chamberlain further said  that he was aware of no endeavor to  neutralize this concession.  It is reported in connection with the  Anglo-American movement that strong  endeavors are being made to get the  Prince of Wales to visit the 'United  States and Canada next summer. It is  aeldeel that encouragement has been  given the idea in responsible quarters.  At a meeting of the British Empire  League a resolution was passed thanking  Hon. William Mulock, postmaster-general of Canada, for his asistance in the  promotion of penny postage.

Rosebery is the only town in Kootenay having  both railroad and steamboat connection that can  ship goods daily to ten diflerent towns, whereby the  shipper can see his wares leave his hands and that  they will be received by the consignee.within two  hours.  0  1 ��������� ''  Its Advantages as a Railroad Center.  Rosebery enjoys the position of king of the  funnell as it were, for the railroad business of the/  ���������whole of the Kootenays. All ore and matter for '  shipment from Nelson, Trail Creek and the Slocan  , must, and is now passing out this way to ths main  line of the C. P. R., as well as all goods coming  in from Revelstoke to the Kootenay country.  NOTE,    To substantiate this:    The C. P. R.  1 t  are now putting in track weigh scales at Rosebery,  the first and only scales that has been put in on any  of the C. P. R. branches in Kootenay���������which  goes to showthe importance of this point by the  Canadian Pacific Railway, Company's actions.  Its Advantages as a Steamboat Point.  Rosebery claims, without opposition, of being  the only junction on the lake, unlike Slocan City, , ' ,  where you can step ofl the steamer to a waiting  train and continue your journey. You can take  either a north or south train at this terminus j consequently Rosebery is the best transient town in  the race. Nevertheless we claim Slocan City  second in importance, and would say watch the  head and foot of Slocan Lake, viz.��������� '' '  ��������� .���������.:!>-  , -.TV.  *������������������:*  ���������u      '"',R  '-b -: -*��������� 1  ���������"    f S  .'

As a manufacturing center Rosebery claims to  have demonstrated the fact that after the careful  observation of the Denver (Colorado) Ore Coy's  manager, as the natural advantages of all points'in  Kootenay for the treatment of ores the cheapest,  Rosebery was selected, and they now are erecting  works, with a capacity of 250 tons per day, which  will be in operation within 90 days; and it is their  intention to pay out monthly in the vicinity of  $100,000. I might also add Rosebery has the  largest water power from Wilson river flowing into  Slocan Lake.  AS TO GLIM ATE.  Rosebery claims the mildest climate on Slocan  Lake, from its admirable southern exposure and  absolute shelter from the north ��������� snow always  leaves the place about the 15th of March.  AS A TOWNSITE.  As a townsite, Rosebery is without a peer. It  is possessed of all Uhe flat land available at the  mouth of the Wilson river leading to the valley���������  mining region���������consequently there is no danger of  any contagion. The title is a Crown Grant and  is perfect. All purchasers of lots are safe in this  respect. The only safe speculative townsite in the  Slocan is Rosebery.  Why should I say the only safe speculative town-  site in the Slocan ? Because Rosebery business  lots to-day are only $150 to $200 each and are  bound to increase rapidly this summer. These  figures can, and will, double before long. The  time to buy is now. Don't wait till they are from  $700 to $1,000, asyou did in Slocan City last May,  go in on the ground floor and make a few dullars  in speculation j if you want to invest go to Vancouver or Winnipeg ; if you want to speculate and  and clean up money go quick to Rosebery before  lots are out of sight.  What's Wanted in Rosebery.  We want a restaurant.  We want a good hotel right away.  We want a first-class general store.  We want a butcher shop.  Anyone looking for an opening spy out this  place at once.  Maps and price-lists on application; prices run  from $75 to $200.  TERMS : One-third cash, balance 3 and 6  months.

It is reported the Kaslo Sun has  given up the ghost.  The Conservatives of Rossland arc-  organizing an association.  The Hon. G. E. Foster is expected in  the Kootenay in a couple of weeks.  The Nelson council has bought the  local electric light   plant for $43,400.  , The inimitable Dick Burden, of Winnipeg, is the city, painting the place lor  Borne advertisers.  In a short time the government's  issue of postal notes will be in circulation, 25, 50 and 75cts.  Spain and the U, S. are still fighting,  ��������� though Spain says shehas accepted the  the Americans terms of peace.  Spokane has a' bv-law against spitting on the sidewalks. How would  such an enactment woik in Sandon?  Now, brother King, how is it ? Mid  you still persist in saying that Kaslo  has the prettiest girls in the country.

The restaurant is  the last to receive the finishing touch.  Sunday last was the hottest day ol  the season. It was a scorcher, but the  succeding days seem to be keeping up  the "bile", and the question is, where  will it end '?  Karl's Clover Root Tea, for constipation it's the best, and if after using it  you don't say so, return the package  and get your money. Sold at McQueen's Drng Store.  It. G. Dunn & Co. are   opening   a  branch of their commercial agency at  ��������� Nelson.   Mother Shipton's prophecies  are about as reliable as the reports ol  these agencies.  A western paper announces the marriage of John Bird, aged 60, to Nancy  Chaff, aged 25. All this, and yet there  are people who say an old bird cannol  be caught with chaff.  Shiloh's Consumption Cure cures  where others fail. It is the leading  Cough Cure, and no home should bu  without it. Pleasant to take and goes  right to the spot. Sold at McQueen's  Drug Store.  H. Stege, of the Newmarket hotel,  New Denver, who wont up to Glenora  this spring to start in the hotel bus  iness there, has returned. Ho built n  'hotel and sold it. He says that people  up there are disgusted with the government.  A couple of weeks ago we broughl  the Rossland Miner severely to task  for striving to force Federal politics  into our legislature. In return the  Miner replies by cutting off its exchange number. When babies grow  too large for their underclothes, the  matter becomes serious.  The Vancouvrr papers are now commencing to publish letters from Van-  couverites at Daw3on showing that the  Klondyke is over estimated. The  most of them give the gold output al  $10,000,000 for the year, and say that  all the gold-bearing country known ol  is fully staked out; and that only one  in hundreds make a stake.  D. C. McKenzie, representing A. H.  Lougheed & Co., Merchant Tailors, ol  Toronto, and Cunirnings & Sellers, ot  the same city, Ladies' tailors, has paid  his license ot 550 and opened apartments in the Filbert block. He is  taking orders from his extensive  samples for tailor made suits and  ladies fur goods of every description to  be made to order.  T. J. Lendrum, one of the wealthiest  men of the Ainsworth district and  who has mining interests all over the  country including the Sandon district,  was in tho city this week. He says  Ainsworth is picking up again, and  has now many men in tbe hills. Mr.  Lendrum was one of the first mining  men of the country, and his opinion  its, therefore, of considerable weight.  He has full confidence in the Sandon  district.  An accident occurred on the Ruth  wagon road Morday that might easily  have resulted more seriously. As Mr.  Deafenbaker was driving down a load  of ore  the brake of the  wagon broke  .throwing the wagon on to onco' the  horses killing it and.hurting another  of the four. The wagon upset throwing out the driver and hurting him  considerably. 'The ore was pretty well  ��������� scattered. Fortunately, Mr. Docfen-  baker's injuries are not serious.  , Mr. J. A. Griffith recounts some interesting things in the way of the revelations of nature he saw in 'his' recent  trip of a month through many parts of  the states, prominent among which  are some mining interests he and associates located in the South Colvilie  reservation, some 60 miles from the  boundary in the Republic country.'  He brought with iim a piece of gold  and silver beariug quartz from one of.  their locations .that shows most promising assays. Some improvement*  will be made on the property-pending  railway construction and other advancements.  The Rev. W. S. Sipprell, B.A., B.D ,  principal of Columbia Wesleyan College, New Westminster, lectured, in  the Methodist church here on Tuesday  evening���������subject,: "The worth of a  man.'' The Rev. lecturer gave a very  interesting discourse, making copious  illustrations ofthe differences between  , men and what these differences accomplished, and what.they might accomplish when properly directed. Ho  is on a tour of the Kootenay in the  interest of his college, soliciting financial assistance and securing students.  At the close of his discourse the choir  sang an anthem and a hearty vote of  thanks was moved by Messrs. M. L.  Grimmett and C. Cliffe. The Rev. A.  M. Sanford occupied the chair most  efficiently.  Jiin Hill has now full charge of the  Spokane Falls and Northern.  During the'week the Pavne shipped  480,000 tons ore over the C.P.R.  Has the Rossland Miner ceased to  exist'! We have not seen our exchange  number for two weeks.  The newC.P.R. depot will cost about  $2,000, and construction will be let to  some local contractor in a day or two.  Talk of the Klonkyke! Why the  streets of Sandon would assay higher  than some of thu mines of that north  country.  ��������� Mr. Cunning has decided to re-open  the dining apartments of the Sandon  hotel at an early day, or as seon as he  can complete arrangements to open  properly.

Some say Unit Tom Daly intends to  be the Conservative candidate in this  constituency next election. We hope  the party will be spared Mich a calamity. < Tom is not the man for such a  responsibility. "Don't you go, Tommy,  don't go."  The twoTurnerites were elected in  Cassiar, leaving the two parties 19 and  10, and yet tlie delicate Lieut.-Governrr  Mclnnes, whose son is looking for the  Attomey-Gi neralship with Beavcrn,  dismissed Turner under such circumstances!'   What next?  A contingent of the Salvation Army  held forth in the city, Saturday and  Sunday accompanied by a brass band.  Their parades added much to the  amusement and interest of the small  boys, and others not so small. It'is  said these people accomplish much in  certain places by reaching people who  would otherwise never go to church.  In so far as this is'true, the public will  give them credit; but it is a question  how much farther the organization  may be considered serviceable. Tho.ru  is ono thing certain lecturers like  most of these, entirely illiterate, cannot hope to do much among people  better educated than themselves.  ft TIRED  U  P  I  L^ 1 lie  is as bad as a tired head or tired limbs.

BO VEIL, Limited  30 Farringdon Street,  London', England.  25 and 27 St. Peter Street,  Montreal, Canada.  0I1UKCH . NOTES.  I  Russia   Must Be   Spoken   lo   in    Plain  Words���������The Princess of Wales'  Mission.  There is great uneasiness in London  on all sirlos in view of tho Chinese situation, which . is regarded as bringing an  open conflict between Great Britain and  Russia within a measurable Tlistance,  and it is universally felt that the Marquis of Salisbury's inverbracy in yielding  to Russian aggressiveness is responsible  for the dangerous conrplications, which  can only be overcome by a most prompt  and most film intimation that Russia's  open opposition to British commercial  concession must cease.  In connection with this, a curious  story is current. It is now said that tho  Princess of Wales' hurried departure  from England was in response lo a despatch from her sister, the Dowager Empress of Russia, bearing upon the Anglo-  Russia relations. It is well known that  the Dowager Empress is strenuously  working to conclude a definite understanding regarding Anglo-Russian interests in the far east, and it is said that  great importance attaches to the meeting of the sisters at Copenhagen.  A London cable to the Montreal  Evening Star says : The Anglo-Russian  war scaie is spreading beyond political  circles and the stock market is seriously  depressed. Alarmist reports of Russian  preparations are corning from several  quarters with indications that Russia is  deliberately forcing a crisis in the east.  Diplomacy is extraordinarily active and  the wires between London and St.  Petersburg have been monopolized for  the past twenty-four hours by government business.  New Zeland Regulations,  New Zealand is often described,  especially by would-be   British   Columbian reformers who havo   never   been  within a thousand miles of any of   the  islands of that colony,   as   a   region  where both laws and labor  .conditions  are in   general of, the   best.     Those  materially interested in  gold  mining  in New Zealand, hold,  however,. that  legislative and other conditions   there  leave much to be   desired,   as   under  present conditions profitable gold mii.-  ing is greatly 'impeded.     The   eight  hours working day is not deemed detrimental, but advantageous, ns  lending  to more continuously well applied   exertion.   But in.the case of  low  grade  mines tho compulsory closing down ol  mills for the-whole t.wentj-fotir. hours  of Sunday is in this   colony '��������� found   I o  reduce unduly the net, returns,  anel  it  is,urged that the spirit of Sunday  observance would bo sufficiently observi d  by closing from S a. m. to 8 p. in. only  on the "first day of the   week.".    Still  stronger objection is taken to a yearly  tax of one shilling per hundred pounds  on the nominal capitalization of  companies established in the country, and  to a further tax amounting in effect to  2\ per cent, on all.dividends   declared.  There is.also, it seems, .'an export duty  of two shillings���������practically 50 cents���������  per ounce on gold; but as the resulting  return is expended   on   mine   district  road-making, less exception is taken to  this.   However, as   a'.whole,'- British  Columbia mining laws are much more  liberal towards tlie investor and mine-  worker than arc those, of ]Sew Zealand,  though perhaps the Yukon laws   and  regulations compare less favorably in  this respect.

A Klondyke Letter.  The following letter, written by  Capt. Morgan, from Dawson City, on  Jul j 9th, has been receivod by his son,  Claude Morgan :  "I have just come from Mcquestian  creek, having taken a long tour on tho  way from the creek to the Stewart  rivr-r, down the Stewart to Yukon, and  down lhe Yukon to Dawson. I made  the water part of the trip on a raft all  alone. There are '40,000 people here  now and they are gelling out as fast as  ihe.y can. Mo>t ol them aro flat broke  and they are the most discouraged lot  of people that over got together. Some  are selling their outfits to got out of  the country. There have been no new  diggings found since I have been here,  .tlthough Mr. O'Brien, formerly of  Vancouver, is conducting some tunneling operations very near the townsite.  The people here will simply have lo  return south, nnd T would advise you  to tell all your friends not to be too  fast about gettinc into this country as  it is a blank jafct now. Tlie new laws  arc hard and God help tho miners. I  havo done my level best here but 1 am  coming out or else die on the trail. I  havo live:! the life of a wild animal  and suffered the tortures of 72 degrees  below zero for days. On my last trip  i didn't see tha face of man for forty-  two days. On account of the new  mining laws, lots of mines have closed  down. Thousands are going to the  American side lo try their luck there  .uid thousands are going home."  ��������� . Weak Kidneys.
