 /      J  " W-  ^  /-'.  VOL.  NO. 35.  SANDON,  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY  189!  PRICE FIYE CENTS.  h  /i  Rev. J. A. Clelland Ordained by a  sub-Presbytery of the Kamloops  Presbytery.  A Large and   Representative Assemblage���������Reception   Tendsred   by  the Ladies of the Congregation.  Ilfv.  The Virginia hall,   on  Wednesday  evening, was the scene of a, very impressive ceremony when the Rev. j. A;  , Clelland, the lately inducted pastor of  the Presbyterian church, was ordained  by three ministers  of that denomination, viz. Revs. Glassford,   Moderator,  Trail; Gandier,' Rossland, 'a' d   Frew,  Nelson. .These were appointed by .the,  general Presbytery of Kamloops for the  purpose of ordaining Mr. Clelland, also  , Rev.   Menzies,    the   latter   ceremony  taking plaee at Kaslo   the   next day  where  he had accepted  a unanimous  call.    Naturally these services have an  interest   for thc  people,   particularly,  church goers, but no doubt   Mr. Clel-  '    land's popularity   helped   in  bringing  together so many of the different denominations of the city,  there being  something   over   150    present.     The  7   ladies as usual t'ook an active, though  quiet, part   in  the  affair providing a  delicious repast of the, various  deli-  cacies peculiar   to the   culinary art,  which  was heartily partaken of by all  present. -   ���������  The order oft  e service,  as  nearly  as  we< can gather it, was:   Opening  hymn, prayer, etc., followed by a short  and instructive sermon by  Rev. Frew.  Then after calling Mr. Clelland to the  platform Rev. Glassford, .in" company  Y   with   his   two   colleagues   and   Elder  Carney of Kaslo, led in the ordination,  ���������which consisted of catechising on thc  dogmas and rules of the church.   Thc  examination being favorable thc three  ministers and the elder invoked  God's  blessing in prayer and   by the laying  on of hands, ordaining him a minister  in Christ's church.   Then followed  an  address to the people by Rev. Gandier,  which he commenced  by congratulating Mr. Clelland  on his good   fortune  in having such a fine service of praise,  as .evinced by the   hearty singing of.  ', not only the lead,   but the   congregation; also on havingsuch a   heautilnl,  commodious place of worship   in   so  new a pince.   He  further said  that it  ; was, ae he was informed,  to. theYkind-;  Bess   of a   citizen,   Mr. Harris,   the}*  were indebted  for the use of the fine  hfill and that  free.     Hoped,   though,  :   they would endeavor to erect a church  for themselves   and   that  their good  luck  would be with them   in that tin-,  dertaking...     ',..'.. ,;.;  This brought   to    a close   the first  part of the proceedings, and  Mr^ Fallows was then called to take the chair,  a place���������though not a stout man���������he  seems well qualified' to fill.   The Male  Quartette,.composed of Messrs. Sewell,  Webb, Fallows and Bassett, varied the  proceedings with a quartette, "There  is   Rest."   ' The   chairman   then   announced that the ladies requested  the  audience to.break up or rather-divide,  into companies, some to file into the  council chamber for refreshments  the  remaining ones to engage in social intercourse.   After all had had a taste of  the good things provided for the inner  man   and a good deal of   chatting in  various groups, the meeting was again  called to order.   The Rev. Frew being  called gave a short and  entertaining  address, calling to tbe minds of the  people the worth of the man they- had  secured admonishing   them to appreciate him as such.   The Quartette then  favored   the   audience   with   another  selection.     Miss   Skinner    in     both  quartettes   ably filled  the position  of  a<;companiest.    Mr. Clelland in a briet  response  to a request  rather direful ly  laid: out   a course of-instruction���������in  anecdote���������which he would not be likely  to follow.    Rev. A. M. Sanford was  then asked  to give a  few words, and,  after a kindly reference to  his co-laborer, amused  the people in   his  usu? 1  humorous   style.     The   meeting  was  brought   to a close by the singing  of  the doxology.  The Ladies' Aid wish to extend to  Mr. and Mrs. Sudrow its thanks and  appreciation of their kindness in giving the free use of the kitchen range  and other necessaries.

The rcprcscnt-  ativc.memhcrs will be the nominees  of mining syndicates and companies  while any one directly interested in  mining can become an associate member on nomination nnd election on thc  payment of a subscription. The incorporation of the chamber is to be  procured. As n, body through which  thc opinions and the requirements of  mining men canoe formulated nnd  turned to account either by urging  legislation or other ways, thii chamber  seems to be "worthy of Ihe support of  every mining man in the province. It  occurs to the Herald, however, that in  order to make itself really effective  committees of tho chamber should be  appointed for each mining district  which would be able to keep in ..touch  and correspondence with' a central  committee, located wherever seemed  best to the whole chamber.���������Reveistoke Herald.  8HD0N Ml fill.

In a very  short time assays will be completed,  the tunnel will be further pierced ancl  a. better estimate of the value of the  discovery will be easily made.

'-.A social dance  was held   in the Virginia hall,   on   Friday   night   of  last  weok, under the auf-pices of the New  Denver ore .estni.    Quito a, number of,  the  young   people   accompanied'''the'  orchestra making,   with   the   Sandon.  youth and beauty,  a  select gathering.  The introduction ol agreeable  visitors  into   lhe   circle   of the   Sandon .four  hundred made a  pleasant deviation in  the  even tenor of its ways.     The or-,  chestrn,   though  unable to make   al)  their     instruments   chord    with   the  ninno, furnished   music   that was the  subject of favorable comment.    Dancing was  kept up till 1 a.m.,  when  all  dispersed   well  pleased  with    the enjoyable evrning.    Owing  to  the   non-  arrival of the 0. P. R. express Satnrd iy  evening  the   New Denver band   were  unable to fill their engagement, and as  the ice wan soft  the carnival   was declared off.  On Sunday lust one of the periodical  ���������now slides at the   Lucky   Jim ' mine  took place, but this  time   with   nrore  serious consequences than usual.    The  locality i������- about   eight   miles   to   the  east ol Sandon on the K.  and   S.   line.  While attending to his duties,  as section man W.llolman   was   overtaken  iiy the avalanche of   snow,   mud    and  timber.   lie saw itcoming.and though  he. put, forth his most   vigorous   effort  to get out of the ivay,    he   was ,..overtaken, and. carried down-; about  -forty,  feet in.the moving mass of snow   and.  debris.   He might have  fared   better  -.than he did   but   for   a 'limber, that  caught him find   took   him   that   distance in its 'descent, and pinned.him  to a tree below.     But.   for the   timbor  striking the tree.no one'..can   tell  what  'might have happened'.'      Wheii   extricated it was found Holm an'' had .'three  ribs broken and was otherwise seriously   if not   fatally .injured.     He   was  brought to .the city, where he is placed  under medical treatment- and   special  care. - How his  case  may   terminate;  it is difficult to say, though   the doctor  is hopeful.  ,;���������.  Poor Forlorn Kootenay.  Three Ways.  Town of Roseberry.  ��������� A Roseberry correspondent informs  us the C. P. R. ears di I not run into  the lake at that point as reported some  days ago. Instead of being shallow  the water is 75 feet deep at the slip.  The plans for the ore sampler have  reached ths town.' .Tho'building is to,  be70xl24 feet, modern in all essentials,  and will be under construction in a  very short time. A wharf will be built  on the lake to handle ores from all  points on the lake and C. P. R.  tracks will he built on each side of the  structure.  The C. P. R. have erected a, large ice  house, and are filling it, ns rapidly as  possible. Chief Ei.ginoer Christie's  house is nearly completed.. He will  move in on the loth.  .Altogether tbe prospects of thc place  are looking very bright.  There are three ways to most effectually build up a city. The first is for  every man in busiiiets to handle everything from bullheads and codfish to  jewellry, including dry goods, hardware, patent medicines and stationery  This enables every business house to do  ALL the bnsincs*) of the place, and all  thereby gee rich: The next, step is  for all private parties,as well as public  officials,.to hire single men instead of  married men with families, for all  offices and positions, even though the  married men are better qualified for  the duties, as this keeps out superfluous population ; and, of course, no  place requires a largo population. The  next thing is for all residents who are  not in commercial business to send  outside, to Eaton's in Toronto, for instance, for everything they want, ns  this crushes out extra business men,  and drains the place of surplus cash.  These three methods of success have  been tried in various places in Canada,  and they have never been known to  fail in accomplishing the desired  end.  An eastern lady who has'-visited  many of tbe Kootenay towns writes  disparagingly of some of them saying,  "they can be nothing but what the  mines make them." My, oh my ! Pray  what can any town in Canada be but  what its surrounding resources make  it? This is dreadful. A Kootenay  town should not raise its heaci above  earth unless it is'suiroundcd by ;trie'  shipping of Liverpool, the manufacturing of. Birmingham,' the. agricultural  surroundings of a central prairie town,  the painting, music and sculpture of  an Italian City, the fashic ns of Paris  and the winters of Dawson City. With  all these, according- to the revis d version of that lady's letters, a Kootenay  town might be something with the  mines thrown in.  Notes From the Gazette.  The last British Columbia Gazette  contains the registration of the following extra-provincial -companies':,  .,  The Byron N.'White company, with  it capital stock of ������500,000 ; head office  in Sandon, and Bruce White as   attor-  "<������������������}*���������  -       ..'',' '���������".'' .   ./'  Gold Hill Mining company, with a  capital stock of .-"500,000 ; head office in  Rossland,,and J.

It may be that the .opposition ' is at  heads and tails as a party, aB tbe correspondent puts it, but that offers'-'no  exoneration:'for any weakness, of the,  government. It may also be, as that  writer put it; that the parliament  buildings , were completed economical! v, but that is no argument, for  their erection at all, and certainly  none for their erection in the city of  ���������Victoria. Originally what is now  called British Columbia constituted  two provinces with''two governments,  and if the Islanders persist in playing  their dog in the manger pranks, it may  be.two provinces again. Then why  the erection of so costly a building for  "Islanders" convenience alone?.  It is true the province has the natural re-ources, prospective; wealth'  and  guaranteed future before  it   that   the  Miner's scribe says it has ;  but, surely  he will not say it is the  handiwork  of  the Turner government that is   to   be  thankee,! for .that;   thoug      the   scribe  insinuates th. t it   is.     There   is   no  dqubt'but, tiif.t  British   Columbia-',is'  going' to, be   the   brightest jewel ��������� in  the crown of the   Canadian   Confederation ; but that brightness, has to result  from the development of tbe resources  'of the mainland ; and here we  have   a  Victorian scribe endorsed by a   Rossland editor, justifying the placing of a  millstone   around   the   neck   of   our  future.- What is palpable is the parliament buildings are in the wrong place  for the convenience of the Baitish  Columbia people, artd, therefore,   an unjustifiable  extravagance.     The   argument of the correspondent summed up  is this :    Nature has done wonders  for  British Columbia in giving it resources  that must lead to great wealth���������therefore, the government is justified in; extravagance find defensible  in  erecting  their public buildings where access to  them by the ^multitudes,.,'is ..attended  with   the   greatest   cost - and    inconvenience. " Blessed be  those.who   see  that way.  With Scissors and Pen.  The Charleston ; has made   a  ment from its new strike.  ship-  The Tariff mine near Ainsworth will  most likely supply the smelter at Pilot  Bay with ore.   ��������� 7.  Tne Two Friends mine near Slocan  City has shipped 22 tons of ore avering  ;S120 to the ton.  Howard Fraction mine yields 187J  ozs. silver and 1.14 ozs. in gold to the  ton, a total of $166.93.  The great British American Corporation at Rossland seems to be getting  its hands into the Slo-an also. Rumor  credits it, with designs on the Slocan  Star and the Whitewater.  Ferguson and Caldwell report that  an option has been given on the Carbonates in Jackson basin for $75,000  to Chicago parties, who will soon erect  a $40,006 concentrator.  ' ��������� , r  Whitewater and surroundings are  attracting much attention lately. The  recent-strike in the Charleston, and  fine developments in the Elkhorn and  Hillside, are drawing many people to  the town.  The'recent strike on Sunset No. 2 at  Rossland, has widened to a four and a  iiairfcY6tW(f body. Each blast shows  an increase in width pf ore and it is  thought the stock will prove a phenomenal one.  A Comparison.  Extra Local Items.  B. C.   Trade Figures.  The Chamber of Mines.  On February 15th a meeting will be  held in the Hotel; Vancouver at Vancouver to adopt a constitution for, the  new B. C. Chamber of Mines. As will  be se<-n by the following list of., the  chief objects of the the Chamber's  work, its scope will be both extensive  and useful:  1. To promote aiid protect the mining interests and   industries   of  the  British Columbia's exports included  nearly   nine million dollars worth of  minerals   to the  United Stat- s.   Tot-a  exports were 814,000,000. against S10  500,000 in .1896.  DOES YOUR FOOD DO YOU GOOD  i ��������� , ���������  If you have dyspepsia your food cannot do all the good it should. B. B. B.  cures dyspepsia and regulates the  stomach, so that every grain of nutriment is extracted from the food. Solid  facts count. Miss Mary Rose Belli-  veau, Church Point, N. S. says : "Burdock Blood Bitters made a complete  cure in my case after Iliad suffered for  two years from dyspepsia. I believe  it cannot fail to cure."  Hire or Build?   Hire.  We give elsewhere, the substance of  a  proposition   made by   the   Sandon  Electric Co,   for   heating   (he   public  buildings, lighting the town  and supplying  water for fire and   other purposes.   Having  put  on  incorporation  clothes there  is no way out oi it now  but to face the music.    Tbe company  have for a considerable time,  at their  own expense, supplied, the place  with  water  for   lire'purposes   and  light  for  public uses,  and now the taxpayers of  thc place   must assume the  responsibility.   To some the offer  may appear  high; but   there   are only   two ways  from which the matter can be viewed,  viz. the lowest offer ol  the company,  and tlie interest on tl^; cost of another  system   supplemented   by tlie cost of  management,  wear,  tear,  etc.    When  the two  propositions   are considered,  there is  but one  conclusion  to  reach  ancl that is  the offer of the   company  is the better one for thc city at present.  It may be that  fewer lights and  fewer  hydrants  than   are suggested,   would  Vancouver is to have a new Liberal  paper. This is but a poor compliment  to the World after its slobbering .ifter  PaP-  Hunter Bros.have purchased tho.balance'of Ardery and Brewster's grocery  stock, and are moving it up to their  own store. ,  The British Columbia Gazette of  Jan. 27th. contained a. notice of the appointment of Dr. Symonds to-be medical health officer of the Provincial jail,  Nelson.  Mr. W. H. Lilly received notice last  night from Victoria of his official appointment as nolice magistrate for the  City of Sandon. Mr. E. M. Sandilands  and Mr. H. H. Pitts were appointed respectively police and license commissioners.  When thc Flansard report reaches  this office we will copy the speech of  Hon. G.E.Foster referring with great  force to the superiority of the mining  interests of West Kootenay over those  of Klondyke; He disapproves of the  Teslin Lake Railway which Sir Charles  endorses.  It is said that, thc Dunsmuirs now  that they have a taste of Slocan property in the Noble Five mine, are negotiating to purchase other interests in  that vicinity*. All that is wanted is  capital to make tho1 Sandon section  a hive of industry turning in large  revenues  to investor.";.  At a mass meeting recently held at  Cascade City, B. C��������� a committee w-is  appointed to draft a petition o be forwarded to the Dominion parliament  asking that a franchise be granted the.  Kettle River Valley Railroad (D. C.  Corbin's which petition was drawn up,  signed by 90 persons and forwarded.  A well known Spokane businessm:.n  who was in the city this week, made  the following comparison, in the course  of a conversation on the business  situation in this camp. - "You folks"  ho said, "have no cause for complaint.  Looki'al thc Trail district for instance,  at Rossland there are 5,000 people:  The business is divided between more  than three time* as many merchants as  you have,and the tonnage of, that camp  is only about one-quarter what yours  is, yet they are not complaining."  The Kootenaia-i publisheB the fore-  gcing with a flourish of trumpets.  Now will that paper have the goodness,  once, for all, to publish the actual tonnage of the Kaslo camp? We would  very much like to know just what  shipments'of ��������� re there are from the  Knslo camp, actually mined there.  Gil! Gounci  -it-o-������   The Parliament Buildings.  UNDOUBTED EVIDENCE.  Gentlemen,���������I am pleased to recommend your Laxa-Liver Pills for constipation, dvspepsia and sick headache.  I hare used  them  for those   troubles,  and find them   a   pleasant,   su.-e   and   structure of less beauty  quick cutre,  free   from   the   annoying  griping of other pills I have heretofore  used.  Signed, H. James  St. Nicholas Hotel, Hamilton, Ont.  Interest in the opening   ceremonies  on Thursday next of the   new   provincial   parliament    buildings  increases  daily.    Referring to the new buildings  it may be said that here again the  opposition find "the feet   knocked   from  under them."     While it is well known  that a larje section of the   people   on  the mainland disapprove of  the   large  expenditure on the parliament   buildings, the argunipnt   advanced   by   the  oppositionists in.the   house   that   the  undertaking was unwarranted was unjustifiable in the light of recent events,  falls somewhat flat.   Even the-stivuchest friends of the administration   were  compelled to admit that,  at   the   time  the project   was   Iirst   mooted   critics  were justified to a  certain   extent  in  protesting against such a large  expenditure of money at a   time   when   depression prevail  everywhere   and   the  province was heavily   in   debt.      But  the situation is entirely different^   No  country in the world has a more splendid future,ahead   of   it   than   British  Columbia; no country can boast of enjoying at tha   present   time     greater  resources or more wonderful  possibilities.   With this changed condition   of  affairs, therefore, the government   can  justly maintain that,   aside   from   all  that was said at the time the  contract  loi.tlie parliament buildings Was   let,  time has now exemplified the  wisdom  of the government's eclion, and that a  and   magnificence would not be suitable for such a  splendid province.  It would be very hard indeed to  put  more clap trap   and   well   varnished  The regular meeting of the ��������� council  was held Monday evening last when  a^l the members were present. The  minutes of previous meeting were read  and adopted. A communication from  Rossland inviting the council to attend  the     winter carnivitl-^-there,-'���������was  replied to with thanks.' .7 A.'sb an .offer  from the. Sandon Water and Light Co.,  for supplying the city was read. Several by law were read a first time.  A SPECIAL MEETING.  The city council held a special meeting Thursday evening, and put through  the dog tax, money borrowing, road  tax, city pound, fire by-laws.  A telegram was read from the Provincial Secretary endorsing the recommendations of the counil for police  magistrate and license commissioners.  The tender of the Electric Light and  Water Works Co. offering the hydrants  at ������15 a. piece per month was accepted  on motion of Crawford and Switzer.  The solicitor was authorized to draw  up a contract.'  Hunter���������Crawford -That the offer of  Harris and Kellp to heat the fire hall  at So per month was accepted.  The question of lighting the city  was left over for nextm.ee ing on motion of Hunter and Cunning.  On motion of Hunter andt Broddy  the clerk was instructed to get the  solicitor's opinion as to the power of  the council to cancel existing licenses  and re issue t em in terms of the city  by-laws.  L. Doolan, G. Lloyd, C. A. Murchi-  son, AV. H- Houghton, ancl J. R. Brown  applied for office of chief of police. A  bllot was in favor of Doolan, and he  was recommended to the commissioners at a salary of $100 a month.  Council adjourned.  ' Hon. CH. Mackintosh for the British American Corporation has purchased the Argentunil mineral claim  on the east side of th north fork of  Salmon; river, twelve miles from the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway.  ..'.It has been rumored for some time  that an option, was placed on the Star  mine, and latlely it is said the Mcln-'  tosh syndicate have the option. It is  of course, hard to verify these rumors  as rarely either party will give the information.  The Lucky Jim mine has closed  down by laving off a force of 30 o>- 35  men. The suspension of operations is  ascribed to the necessity of altering  the mill in order to more successfully  handle the zinc contents of the ore. It  is said that operation will be resumed  again with the early spring.  So far in 1898 the value of the mineral -exports from -Southern Kootenay  through the port of Nelson amounts to  ������1,429.262. During the month January  they amounted to S1,193,45S, an increase of almost 100 per cent, over that  of January 1897. From present indications there is every reason to believe  that the output of the mines of Southern Kootenay will be over $15,000,000  in the year 1898.  MINING RECORDS.

SUIVv-'-TTKlN   S2.U0  P.I-K -YEAK        !'-.���������,  Stiuctly in" Advnace  MINERAL   FORMATIONS.  1-1 ere tofore.' the the6ry.:fdr'���������the 'forni-  ' ation of minerals.say silver and .gold for  instance, in the cracks of rock, was that  -' they were originally held  in .solution;  - water in and in that condition dropped  ���������' into' breaks' in the earth under the sea.  This earth was in turn   converted into  ���������rock, and in time the rock was thrown  .yup by internal force; and the mineral,'  ������������������in it as they  are .found,'.to-day..    This  theory,  however,   is disproved   by. the  facts, as   iiV'many cases  the sides .of  leads are worn as smooth as a ploughshare,   showing  they were forced   upward while hardening by cooling, and  the smoothness occasioned, by friction  ;   with' the side rocks,    ,'l.t is also,shown'  in most instances, .that, the lower down  a seam is struck   the large fit   is,'and  the purer   tlie, metal,  which : goes   to  further establish  tlie'latter theory.     It  ��������� is true that in some cases 'seams -'pinch  out," and no trace of them are found  by further  excavation;  but  this nv.ty.  .be the   result   of   a-second   eruption  breaking   the   seam from its  original  ���������"���������"start towards   the centre of tlie earth,  and   separating' it   from.its   original  '��������� source of supply.    The supply from a  'central source can be accounted tor in  ; Wilis'way :    That . in   the formation  of  the rocky crust'of��������� the earth.        ^e   of  the original elements of whit     miner-  .als   are composed ,\vere labs'orbed'' on  .employed,   to any   great extent���������they  . were   dropped   as it]were   for a later  formation centrally/    This later formation, or layer of minerals,  surrounding the   central ball of fire, has   long  remained in .t molten,condition,   and  only reaches  the surface ,'of the earth  "when driven'-'up through breaks in the  superficial   rocks , .by   internal forces.  ..This  would, go' to establish   the fact  that gold, and silver are found where-  ...ever'there   have been   internal   erup-  . tions, but more particularly in regions  of volcanic formation/ and actual1 dis-  coveiy appears to verify the statement.,  By aiid by, "in ages   from now,   when  -the prairie country  is thrown up,   the  inhabitants oi/ those regions   will, be  hunting  in the rocks   for the precious  metals  as we"nre hunting for them  to-  ,,.day,   that   is if the usages  of  future  ��������� days  call   for gold   and'silver   as the  .basis of the currency in use.  Mines like the Wonderful here���������  collections of float ore���������can be accounted for on the hypothesis that in  past ages rapid streams met at these  points and deposited their collections  there from leads pulverized by the  process of nature and washed into  locality, by running waters.  WHY NOT TRY IT ALSO.  .'We see by the   Nelson,   Rossland  and   Slocan   City   papers   that   these  places have had delegates,' in some of.  the   instances self constituted,   interviewing   the   local government,  and,  after   urging claims   for grants,  report  unvarying success. .   Of course   it   is  , 'the duty of the sitting member of each  constituency to press  the needs of all  portions of his  territory on   the attention of the government.    This constit-  >uency is so large   and unwieldy that it  is a difficult matter  for   one   man   to  know it all.    There is then apparently  ho   means   of getting justice   except  .through the'log-rolling system.  Sandon  has done more for the provincial treasury in the way of licenses and other  sources   of  revenue   than   any  other  place in   the Kootenay,   and   there is  no place that   has been more neglected.      We  have no   record oflice,   no  jail or court house, and no expenditure  of any   moment   has   been made   on  bridges or roads.leading into thc city.  Everything   that   has   beendone   has  been done   by the people   themselves.  We would suggest that the city council  at once send an   intelligent delegation  to Victoria   to press  the needs of the  place upon the government,   in an intelligent, forcible manner.    When the  places we have named have succeeded  through delegates,   there is no reason  why Sandon should tail.    As an election  is shortly to be held   much more  can be done now by a delegation than  later on.     The council   will  be   sadly  remiss in their duty, if they do not do  this at once.  country against' the monopoly elause  in"that contract���������tying, as they used to  declare, the country neck and heels to  the apron-strings of that soulless corporation. And now what have we ?  Disguised as it may,be, the contract  with McKenzie and -Mann , for the  Stickien-Lake Teslin railway is 'nothing more or less., than a contract with  the C. F.7R., as time will prove j and'  that contract' has in' it,,,a mon6poly  clause in precisely .the same language  as the old C. P. R. monopoly ' the  Grits yelled, themselves hoarse in de-.  iioiinciiig. ��������� Can consistency of the  political character-go farther? It was  very wrong, for.the Tories to give the  C.-R-..R'. a monopoly-on one, branch;  bui'it.is all right lor "the' Grits to give  them one orr another,' and the hireling  Grit press will defend them in it.    ;  'The Rossland Miner '..speaks, of lv  A. Ueizie's railways, real and projected, as constituting a competitor" wilh  the C. P. R. in , the Kootenay. This  is the story of '"the frog and the ox"  over nnd, over, again.. It is all very  right for private or public enterprise  to build roads anywhere in the country, tliat,, are required to. develop it,  whether the C. P. R. is there or not;  but the idea, of ���������competition was fully  exploded by the advent of the N.l'.R.  inlo Manitoba. Up' to the time Of tlie  construction of the latter,-the C. P. R.  had annually reduced its rates on exports and imports,; but as soon as the  NY P. R. was built joint rates were  agreed on that have never since been  changed. "'The'history rihere- shows  also that on several occasions'the C."  P. R. has made substantial cuts in its  charges, but when the second system  is built, we niay look for an amalgamation of .rates' that wi.ll.be irrevocably  fastened on the country."  It would hot be amiss if the Koo-'  tenay country, at its own expenss, was  to send some good man to Victoria  during the session ofthe House, to  watch 'our local interests. As the  matter stands, this whole section of  country has but a couple of representatives iii the House, and be they as  capable and as wide awake , as they  maybe, the territory is ' too large-for  their attention. This Kootenay section is the wealth bearing district of  the country���������-it is upon this the future  of the'country must mainly centre, aiid  yet but little has been done to develop  its resources. It wants more attention, more public roads, .more government offices, and more expenditute.lo  assist in bringing its wealth to the  market: and from indications but little  need be hoped for in this direction,  without belter leverage in the legislature of the country.  Ogilyie's estimate places the gold  production of the Yukon at-$ 10,000,-  coo for 180S, and subsequent years.  At this rate the 50,000 people going  there will secure $200 each -per vear.  That will be a nice bonanza for the  privations they will have to endure  there,for a twelve month.  A' MINING  DEAL.

To this end rates  will be cut down to the lowest possible  point, all question of profits being  eliminated.

Cuniiin^liftiii it ileGuiro, the  owners of the Ould ling Fraetioiifil  mineral claim adjoining tlie Silver Cup  have liroii������ht an fiction a^iiinsl the  Sunsliiiie Limited who are the owners  oi" the Suii-sliine group, claiming' huavy  ilamages Ibr trespassing upon the Gold  Bug claim in cutting timber thereon  .���������mil in dumping the waste material  from the Silver Cup tunnel workings  on to the Gold Bug claim. An injunc  tion was' obtained in the Supreme  Court, Victoria, a couple of days a'.o  ri-'Straining the Sunshine Limited from  further acts of trespass until the trial  of the action. Mr.' White, Q.

NO MATTER.  ' No matter how obstinate the cough,  how severe the cold. Norway Pine  .Syrup will euro and cure quickly. No  other remedy equals' it in curative  power over throat and lung troubles.  We believe O.K. Brown was one of  the discoverers.of the Reco mine in  1892, and to know that he is to thefore  in Central America as the following  prospectus of a mine will show, may  bo of interest to old timers :  Mr. (!. K.-Brown, a mining expert of  excellent standing, reported for the  company,before it acquired the property, as follows :  "The, Tunkybin Gold Mine comprises about fifteen acres. J have  found that tho ledge extends up to tlie  phenomenal width of 50 feet, and a  length of 1,000 feet; that there are  4O,(K0 tons of battery ore in sight, and  that an average yield of 20 pennyweights.per ton of ore may be realized.  Even if in a very conservative spirit,  we assume that the average yield will  be only 12 penny weights,it is still very  evident that great profit would be  realized.  "Economy in working the mine is  secured by (1) the great width of the  vein, which obviates the necessity for  a large amount of "dead work;" (2)  the proximity to water. The Tuhky  river Hows within 3,000 feet of thc  mine, and fill supplies can be cheaply,  and quicKly transported by water; (3)  labor is cheap ; provisions can be had  at a reasonable figure, and half the expense of feeding labor is curtailed by  the company's garden, in which grow,  the year around, vegetables and native  fruits of all varieties. Tho average  temperlure is about 80degrees, making  it possible to mine every day in the  year, These are great advantages in  mining economically.

IlOltt  Captain   Ray's  Warning   to  United States Government.  the  Only Seven Per Cent, of Those   in   the  Country Have Earned. a'.Liveli-  hood in the Past Year.  Washington���������General Merriam,under instruction from Ac, ing Secretary  Meiklejohh, yesterday ppeiuid :it Seattle the dispatches brought' by a special  messenger, Wells, from Captain Kay,  the department's special representative  in the Klondyke, and forwarded aii abstract of them' to the war department  - by telegraph. Acting Secretary  MeikJejohn was . so ninch impressed  with the statements wired that he  submitte I the dispatch at once to Secretary Alger, who is now convalescing  ��������������������������� at his home fro ii.,lon<i .illness, find  lifter consultation between the.se: bfli-  eifils, the paper was sent over, to the  White House, where it formed the subject of consideration for the" cabinet  meeting of to-day.  The abstract of Gaptaim Hay's report  as telegraphed by Major -������������������ .Robinson is  as follows :  Seattle Wash., .Ian. 31.���������-Complying  with your telegram of to-day live letters and two packages from Gapt. P..H.  -lay, addressed to you, in the hands of  the special courier, E:.H. Wells, were  . intercepted by me. Their substance  is as follows ; The latest bear date of  November 2 and 3, find refers to action  and attempted robbery or coaches,  recommends that the United . States  government take steps to effectually  check imnugrition to the inlnior ol  Alaska of all persons not fully supplied to last tt\o years lheygi\e as  a reason that there is no way of earn  ing a living mil no placiu disc o\ erics  have been made within tbe List eight  months either in Alaska or the Northwest Territories  There is no employment ioi any  large number of people in any ��������� capacity. All values are speculative. There  i3 no fixed standard for labor. There  is not now, 7 or likely to bo^within  twelve months, adequate or .efficient  means of supplying the people how in  Alaska or the Northwest Territories.  He is of the opinion that about 7 per  cent, of all the people who have entered  during the past year have not earned  their living and hundreds arc now scattered along the river,destitute" of food,  clothing any money. People coming in  have not had tb������ faintcs;. conception  of what to do to earn a living, and after  ���������pending the money they bring, they  become dazed and helpless   -  The rush will be great thc next year  and any- step that will be to prevent  people from coming in, in their ignorance will be an act of charity. In view  of recent developments and knowledge  that the lawless aro banding together  along the river for the purpose of robbery; renew suggestions forthegovcrn-  ment placing on the river small draft  steamers with high power, armed and  used topatrol tbe river, and the 'placing of detachments as tbe movement  of people demand. Captain Ray ajso  recommends a preliminary survey by  Cook's Inlet to tlie interior for all  United States roads.  soinfdl tin.; wi stern'seiiators anil Irish  politicians.ropn .sriii   u;s.. .;���������'[ hey   havo  rc'.iiiziai   thai,    i-n>-"ninis ; are  .theirs.

WM Great Britain Desires to Preserve iu China.  London, Feb. 5.���������It is probable that  but little further reliable- information  regarding China will be obtainable until the ministers will have a chance to  turn around on their assailants. During the course of the debate in parliament on the address in reply to the  speech from the throne, it was stated  that Great Britain had never demanded  that Talien Wan be made a. treaty  port. It was merely one of. ihe suggested constituents of the bargain, and  if it should be withdrawn it can only  be clone because it is a barrier''to the  negotiations, for the object ������f the condition was to chsckmate any scheme  for the transformation of Port Arthur  into a closed Russian'port, and the object was equally secured by ''exulting  from China find Russia together a  pledge from them in regard to Corea.  beforo the evacuation of Port Hamilton, and this will probably be the .upshot of thc alfiiir. The semi-official  statement points thereto ; this was  shown notably in the specific 'assurance early in the week in regard to the  temporary nature of the Russian tenure of Port Arthur, which was accompanied by the friendly assurance that  .Great Britain is not bound to Japan by  any warlike relations. In short, there  is every reason to believe 'that Great  Britain does not intend to recede an  inch from the position which has been  taken by Messrs. Balfour, Chamberlain  and Hicks-Beach, in the Marquis of  Salisbury's name.  Henry Norman, a bitter opponent of  tho government, writes in the .Daily  Chronicle that it wculd be unfair to  criticize the Marquis of Salisbury so  long as he maintains the treaty of Tien  Tain of 1846, and adds : "In this demand we are irresistable at last.

Nelson City asked for tenders for  some, sewer excavation, and one, man  offered to do it for S2,520,. and another  wanted $6,414. Thero must be some  men master of estimates in thatburg.  Clerk Sewell says the resolution referred to in these columns last week as  not being seconded, was not entered on  thc minute book. It was read as a  publio document, but not placed, on  record.  Mr. Sandilands has bought but the  business interests of Hand '& Wall-  bridge and taken over most of their  agencies, and amalgamated all with  his own, which will keep him a very  busy man.  Owing to a previous engagement at  home the New Denver orchestra could  not be secured for the dance'which was  announced for Monday .night in the  Virginia hall. Thc dance is consequently postponed.  A dim Valentine/social will be held  at the Methodist church Monday evening at.which valentines will be sold  and a good programme rendered.

Mr. Harris is giving the Reco hotel  Hate Black's) an entire over-hauling,  fitting it up with all the most modern  and approved appliances. He may  not re-open for some time. Tne delay  is giving tho other hotels in thc place  a considerable increase in business.  Mr. .1. M.

Mr. Winters  is a good hotel man, well acquainted  with the public, and doutbless will get  his share in his new venture of what  is to be had in his way.  A report making a serious reflection  on Mr. O'Hcnrn is in circulation, concerning the lire in his store at Ross-  1 md three weeks ago to-day. People  should be very careful in such matters.  Mr. O'Hearn slept in Sondon on Saturday night, and there is absolute proof  he wasat the mines here during all  that day, Saturday.  The C. P.

Now, Mac says the engine had  to go through a snow bank 17]- feet  high, and it must be so when Mac says  it, for proverbially he is a better man  than George Washington.
