Walter Riblet Writes a Long  Letter  of the Trip and the Town.  B. C. Riblet of this city has just received a long lettter under date of  Tuesday, October 12th, from -his  brother, Walter Riblet, personally  known t������ many readers of the Revikw,  who reached Dawson City in Alaska  early in October. The writer says in  in part:  'THE LAKE AND ItlVEK.  "After leaving Lake Bennett we had  a good trip although rather a hard and  disagreeable one.   Had only ono   and  one-half days' railing, and had to   row  all the rest of the way.   ' In the   lakes  it tvus hard work, but after we got into  the rivers we bad a strong, current and  w/i wi nt a /lying.'    II id no bad luck at  all.    Went   through   the   canyon   all  right, only I walked around.   Tho boys  knew I was a little afraid, so they told  me I needn't stay in the boat.     It was  a pretty wild looking place.,  The river  narrows down to about fifty l'cet wide,  with high solid walls of rock on   each  side, and the water rushes through at a  terrible rate.   After tho canyon comes  the White   Hoisc   Rapids.   ' We   unloaded a part of our cargo   here   and  hired a man to take the boat through  for $15.   He went through  safely -: and  the boat took very little water.   These  are a  very strong,   swift   rapids   and  there are many rocks under tho water.  the five fingers.  "After leaving the rapids we had  safe water until we reached the Five  Fingers, except for occasional bars and  riflles. We all dreaded the Five Fingers, but were happily disappointed,  for they proved to be not nearly so bad  as the other rapids. There are three  big rocks in the channel and tho  watcis rush between them at a great  speed and with terrible commotion.  Our boats went through the right hand  channel just as nice as you please. It  was a picnic. Then wc had good water  all the way until we reached Fort  Selkirk, where wo found the river full  of floating ice nnd snow from thciPelly  river. The mass nearly blockaded the  river and looked very dangerous at  times., But we kept on and floated  down with the current which was quite  strong. Many'times we would be in  ice where it filled the river completely,  and as far up and down as wc could  see. In those places we could only  drift along, but would make forty to  fifty miles per day notwit standing.  Wc made *>arly starts. Every boat we  saw we passed ���������some days as many as  fifteen or twentv. Wc made good time  and came in ahead of a good many  who started ahead of us. We passed  C. M. Coe, formerly of Columbia and  Aberdeen, about fifteen miles before  wo got to Bennett. He has not showed  up yet.  on a laygor by the day. I would rather  take tho lay and run a chance of making something. December or January  i.-j better for prospecting they say, for  there is then no water to bother. ' The  weather is fine, cool of course, but just  nice. I go around in my shirt sleeves  in"the middle of the day, and I haven't  worn a thing of my new outfit yet,  only the gloves and socks. The other  boys seem to be bothered quite a good  deal with the cold. I know I will  stand the weather all risrht; I have  been perfectly well eyer since we  started out and have a horrible appetite.  mo  'Penny  Wise and  Pound Foolish.  THE TERRIBLE TRAIL.  "I.will not tell you about our trip on  the trail, only to say it was one long  to be remembered. It was awful���������that  is all there ii about it., Dead horse  trailwe called it;'before we left it, it  was lined with dead horses, . ours  among tlie rest. Luckily our horses,  slood it until ihe last day, and then  they fell by the wayside along with  the rest of them.-, I will try and do  the trail justice seme other time.  "I think that everything has been  exaggerated about this country.-' I do  not know as regards the gold, for as  yet I do not know anything about the  subject. Everything is gold dust-here  even to a 25 cent purchase. J feel ail  right about ,' the country, although  there are a lot Oi' sick ones already.  There are lots here 1 know and I am  sure I shall get along."  ARRIVAL AT DAWSON.  "Well, we reached Dawson City  about noon on October 7th. We unloaded our cargo and got it all up to  our tent which we pitched close to the  Mt. Vernon boys' tent. We have quite  a colony of boys from there all in a  bunch, but they are beginning to  scatter some now. There arc a lot of  people here now and many more are  coming. A good many will not get  in, but the weather is still good and  many of them .will'mai-'e it. It is all  log houseB and tents here. There are  two or three stores, but not many  goods. It is impossible to buy a pound  of provisions at the stores, but they  expect some in yet. There are six  boats which left Seattle that have . not  sent their goods up yet. There is  bound to bo a shortage of provisions  this winter unless mort! come in. A  good ninny aro going down the river,  where the bouts are, so that they can  get plenty provisions. We have plenty  to carry us through. I bought 400  pounds of sugar the other day for 4>120.  Sugar and tea are the only things that  can be bought now. Flour is selling  at $100 per sack of 50 pounds. Beans  sell at $ LOO per pound, candles at $2.00  each, and beef at $1.25 per pound.  Some of these ..provisions are being  sold by parties who are going back or  have more than they want. Labor is  $15 per day, and men are .not very  anxious to work even, at that figure.  Meals until a few days ago were $2.50  each, now there is not a place in town  where a person can get a thing to eat,  with the exception of pies, which sell  at SL50 each. The restaurants have  closed on account of the shortage in  provisions. Ben's cost $1.50 each. I  had a sweet tooth the other day and  bought a little candy, some of the common pail kind. It cost me only $1.00  per pound.   I don't^eat any more.  EXCELLENT FALL WEATHER.  "Two of our boys are up  the   gulch |  looking around.

The Kootenay Curling Association Was  Formed Last Evening.  Representatives of the Nelson, Sandon and Kaslo curling clubs who are  in the city for the purpose of participating in the bonspiel, .together with  a number ot Rossland curlers, met last  evening for tho purpose of organizing  a Kootenay Curling association. J. B  McArthur, Rossland, was elected chairman, and A. W.Strickland, Kossland,  secretary of the meeting.  After adopting a resolution organizing the Kootenay Curling association,  J. B. McArthur was elected temporary  president, A. W.Strickland temporary  secretary, and Messrs. Peters, Grim  mett and Buchanan, vice-presidents.  An executive committee was .appointed, consisting.of J..E. Main, .Jas.  Warcastle, Sandon ; W. H. Grant, Nelson ; J. S. C. Fraser, Kossland; and  Messrs. Warren and Ray' of Golden.  The presidents of all curling clubs that  may belong to the association will  also be on the executive committee.  Messrs. McArthur and Peters were appointed as a committe to draft the  constitution of the association.���������Rossland Miner.  The Ajax. Group.  Noktiipield, Minn., Dec. 30, 1897.  Editor Miner���������Sir : Can you give  me any reliable information respecting  the Ontario Goldfields Mining and Developing company of Toronto, Ont.,  that is managed by E. Wallace!' I  was in your city September last, and  was then informed that Mr.Wallace was  workiug-pn the Ajax group, somewhere  near Saiadon. What success has attended their labors I am unable to say.  As I hold a block of their stock, 1  wish to ascertain whct.ier it has any  value, present or prospective.  I remain respectively,  Subscriber.  [So far as the Miner can ; ascertain,  nothing is being done at present on  the Ajax group.���������Ed;]���������Rossland���������. '���������  The professional oracle nt Rossland  who professes to know all about the  mineral wealth of this world and the  to conie, and hesitates not to advise  the public he can locate it witli his  divining wand, the Miner, gets oif the  foregoing. Of course when a newspaper man never gets out of his chair,  and writes from what he thinks only,  especially when ho thinks there is no  virture outside of Isriid, and no mines  outside of a stone's throw from Rossland, his opinions are open to question,  Had the Miner man kept the ore shipments from Siindon since July last as  published in tho Review,' he could  have advised his subscriber the Ajax is  four miles lrom Sandon by the trail,  and that it has shipped live cars of  ore since then, averaging about 8100  per ton, and that there are now some  twelve men const .ntly at work at the  mine. Lot the Miner clip this and  send it to his enquirer, and it will do  him some service.  There   has     long    been   complaint  among Canadian lire insurance annuls  that   business   lias  been  taken  away,  from them   by. the  representatives .of  American    companies   that   are   not  licensed to'do business in the Dominion.   These companies have not made  the deposit, at Ottawa that is required  by the law, and yet they have men in  Canada   "pilfering"  business,   as  one  agent in Vancouver said recently.    In  the Kootenay country this "pilfering"  is'-marked.     There is one American  company especially that has no license  to do business in the .Dominion which  is  complained of.     It has   agents  in  Spokane, who go into  tho   Kootenay  and get good risks  by quoting a lower  rate than licensed companies.   These  agents are not local men, mid, ns  thoy  live in a foreign town,  it is difficult to  reach them  through the Jaw.   Tlie  In  surance   and   Finance   Chronicle,    ol  Montical, referring to this matter in  its last issue, says :  "The; open defianco of the law of  Canada by a certain disreputable class  of American lire insurance companies  calls for more severe measures being  taken to suppress this evil. A case was  recently heard by Judge Desnoyern,  presiding at the Special Sessions in  this,city, which.will serve to make the  law better known to those companies,  by whom the law of Canada is audaciously set at naught. The case was  reported as follows: William Labree-  que was fined $25 and costs for delivering fire insurance policies of an unlicensed insurance company. It appears that Labrecquc represented an  American insurance company, which  had not made a deposit with the Canadian government in order to be allowed to carry on such a business in  Canada. The charge was preferred by  .Mr. Harris Cohen, who had taken out  a policy for $1,200. ff "Mr. Cohen's  premises had been ourncd, the policy  was of questionable value, as the  company h d not a license for Canada.  Tho judge said 'it was a very serious  case.' It is certainly very serious for  foreigners to be setting tho law of Canada at defiance, ft is aiso very serious  for some of our citizens to be running  the risk of being unable to collect  thuir insurance in the event of a lire.  Thc'old saying/'Penny wise and pound  foolish,' cpplies with especial force lo  a man who. in order to save a few cents  in the cost of his fire insurance, buys  a poliky which is absolutely worthless  ���������except as an exhibit of foolishness  and a wa.-ning toothers."���������News-Advertiser.  We may add that this kind of bogus  business is going on all over the country. Some of them got risks on Sandon parties, and the truth is when they  are not authorized in this province  they can not be held to pay losses.���������  [Ed.

He  also called attention to the maniK-r in  whicn the cities of K&otenay were being harnessed by the Provincial Board  of Health, in regard t������ the disposal   of  their sewage.   There were several  incorporated cities in the district  which  had gone to the expense of putting   in  expensi> e s������wer   systems,   and   alter  completing the same,  the   cities   had  been warned th..t they could   not   use  the sewer systems, because tho Board  of Healih would not permit  them   to  drain into the rivers.     He urged   the  Government to look   into the   matter  and reliev' the cities frcm  the   iiiterr  ference of  the   Provincial Board; of  Health.   The   commdn-B������hse   method  of dealing with  the   sewage   question  was to drain the sewage into the largi;  lakes and rivers.   He  spoke- strongly  against the tax imposed by the Government upon working miners, and asked  the Government to   explain   why   exceptional treatment was meted out   to  the quarlz miners as  compared   with  coal miners.

Tlie  report shows a degree of improvement  in nearly all the main features of our  public school system. The whole  nn.liber of schi.ols in operation was  244 at follows : 4 high schools; 12  graded schools ; 213 common schools ;  5 ward schools. The total number of  teachers employed was 384, ah increase  of 34 over that of the previous year.  The total number of, pupils enrolled  was 15,70S and increase of 1,338 as compared with'the enrollment of 1895-6,  and the average daily attendance was  9,099, and increase of 745 for the,'same  period. The expenditure from the  provincial treasury for education proper during (ho. year was $220,810.39,  divided as follows : Teachers'salaries,  5150,949.22; per capita grants lo city  districts, $-l(5,6S'\80; incidental expenses of rural districts, S10,157.28; education office, $10,016.08i. The coat of  each pupil, based on ths, actual enrollment, was $13.97 and based on the  actual attendance $22.08. The expenditure by the Land and Works department for the construction of school-  houses, esc, amounted to $15,870.94.

This shows an increase of over $24,000,000 in exports  and of 87,000,000 in imports. The revenue is better by $SOO,000' lit turns  for the month of January alone show  a gain in exports of $4,000,000; in imports of S2,420',000 ar.d in duty collected of $340,000. It would seem that a  very considerable proportion of miners  going into the Yukon and Northwest  Territories, are going in by way of  Edmonton.

The. mayor and clerk were authorized to procure office furniture and  gaol requisites. The solicitor was  asked to look after a refund of licenses  from the government.  self, and he would scarcely consider  age dishonourable as the writer of the  article appears to.  The Review is referred to as a   rag,  I feel assured that the public  will  admit that its language towards the Pay-  streak was always courteous ; its criticisms were based on facts and logically  arrayed, and, when defending itself had  language and facts to present   without  reporting to   generalizing   wild  asser  lions, so it is quite apparent that the  editorial training which Mr. Cliffe ha?  received,  although coming   from   the  agricultural districts, shows up to   excellent advantage .     As  a   matter   of  fact after coming to Manitoba, he was  closely identified with   that Province,  lie being well   and   honorably   known  far and wide, and numbers among  hie  intimate   acquaintances,   all   of   the  prominent men-of that Province.    He  was known while there as   one   of tlie  best   and  ablest -public-speakers   in  Manitoba, and to   the   writer's knowledge associated   with   gentlemen, the  writers of the Paystreak   arlich' could  never dream of having the samehonor.  it is amusing to read the effort  of   a  a     mosquito     in   trying     to     down  an   elephant.     ��������� Don't     be     worried  Mr.   Paystreak    about      Mr.   Clifl'e's  advising the citizens.     That is what a  newspaper is for if ably and creditably  conducted.    An editor should   always  be ready and able to give information  and instruction   to   the   people.     Do  you not know newspapers  arc  considered the best educators of any country,  and yet you desire the Review to conceal facts from the citizens -arid  allow  the town affairs to drift   into   difficulties , No, our citizens duii't want that  style of  an- editor.     The   council   is  well alive to the fact that Mir. Cliffe is  well qualified to give advise.  You say you only wrote the article  to hold up tne dignity of the town.  How ridiculous, the town must indeed  be. low, if your gutter article can uphold it.  Now fasten yourself onto this fact,  that the best public and private men  of Manitoba have alway credited Mr.  Cliffe with more than ordinary ability.  We common Canadians are somewhat  surprised to learn from the Paystreak  that this all a mistake. You should  learn one fact, the people did iiofc elect  the councily it was the returning offieer  clid it ably, the people had no choice  in the matter.  When,Mr. Paystreak, you again deal  in.criticisms in your own native air  please deal in facts, and though you  will have much less' to say,vyoor efforts  will be more highly appreciated.

It was referred to at  a cabinet meeting to-day when Alaskan  affairs wore discussion, and was considered suflicient justification by the  members for the despatch of the additional military forces already authorized to be sent to Alaskan territory.  The following is a copy of the letter:  "The news from Skagway by the  steamer now in port is serious. The  United States Deputy-Marshall has  been shot dead in the dischare of his  duties. Another ninn was killed at the  same time, and at the same place.

Bassett,  Grimmett, Webb, and Sewell, with Mr.  Fallows as accompanist, gave a couple  of amusing original songs; and a reading by G. A. Stevens. The orchestra,  Messrs. Sewell, .Duffy, Griffith' and  Cliffe was in evidence as a strong-  feature of the entertainment. Mr.  McKenzie in his Mrs. Henry Hawkins  secured a hearty encore, and lastly but  not "leastly," the part taken by the  ladies in an excellent supper, was highly appreciated by ail.

To the Kditor of The Mining Review:  Nearly a column of abuse against  one of our most respected citizens, appeared in the Paystreak two weeks ago,  which would assay very high in   filth.  This material is used sometimes by  low grade newspapeis in the United  States, when the editors fail to be able  to prove anything, having no defence,  they resort to abuse. We cannot believe Mr. Lowery would write in that  strain, as he is not a young man   him-  Things are getting pretty lively in  the Local Legislature. It , is now almost a certainty, Huff, Stodd-irt and  Booth, M.P.P's, formerly 'government  supporters, will go into opposition, because of Turner and Pooley's associations with certain Yukon Mining  companies. It is also understood that  at the same time Speaker Higgins will  resign and go into opposition too. As  this will cause the government to take  one from its ranks for speaker, their  voting power will be reduced by eight  on a division, which would land the  government on a shoal. However, this  is only report so far, and it remains for  the future to do the development  work.  BRIGHT AS A DOLLAR.

The by-laws passed by our city  council the past few days are in some  respects special for what they do  not contain, as well as what they do  ��������� contain. One of them provides that  if a citizen's four houis old chicken is  found .even on a vacant lot, "the animal" may be impounded, and the  owner subjected to a penally.  Another provides that theatres with  a seating capacity of oyer 950 may be  taxed a round sum;   and,   of   course,  all such now in the place and that may  be here in the   next   five   years, will  greatly   enrich   the   treasury.      The  same enactment provides for   catching  menageries,    seers,     astrologer    and  magicians, and taxing carpenters   that  hire a man for a week,; but it   makes  no,provisions for laxing what it ought  to tax   above   all   others���������Transient  Traders.    The poor woman who sells  pins and needles from door to door is  subject to a penalty of $100 a year for  her infringement  on   the   rights   and  privileges of the local   business   men,  but the Transient Trader being a   desirable   acquisition   to   the , place,   is  allowed to operate for   $10   a   year,  just ten per   cent,   of   what   the   pin  woman has to pay   for   the   immense  bank account she is enabled to roll up  out of her  peddling :   but   the   poor  transient trader is favored   in   Israel.  A man from the Honolulu Islands can  go   to   Rossland,   buy   a   bankrupt  stock of goods at 25 cents on   the   $,  bring them to Sandon,   hire   a   store,  put in his goods, pay his $10,   employ  a resident auctioneer, sell his wares at  50 rents on the $,   bring "in   another  stock when the first is all gone, and so  on till the end of the year,and he cannot be fined as much as the owner   of  the chicken at large.  Let this be known abroad as it will  be, and Sandon may be made the  dumping ground for all the Jews and  bankrupt stock dealers in the country. Yacob and Levi can flourish  here. This has all arisen from adopting the old fossilised by laws of other  places instead of writing out and  adopting such as are specially adapted  to the necessities of this particular  place.  The council is wasting considerable  public money in advertising��������� in making their by-laws so lengthy containing  much matter that is altogether unless  in a place situated as Sandon is.  producing fine coal, and parliament  buildings more ornamental than useful,  Rossland and other sections are producing gold and the Slocan country is  the seat of the silver and galena mines  of the country. If a grant is made  for the purposes of the exhibition, all  sections of the province will have to  bear their share, and all sections therefore should be honestly represented.  They appear to be making but little  headway at Ottawa with that mint,   so  much desired by the    people   of   this  country.     All told, there   is $20,000,-  000 of gold in circulation in   Canada,  every dollar of   which   is   American  coin, and on   which    the   Americans  have made 5 per cent., or one million  dol'ars direct, to say   nothing   of the  money expended on labor in   its  production.     Now,   every   cent   of   that  could have been just as well saved   to  Canada.     It is hard to estimate  what  the   Americans   have   made   by   the  American coined silver and nickel   in  circulation here;   but   between   that  country and   England.,   a   handsome  sum has been made outjof silver, nickel  and copper coin in circulation.  There  cannot be   a   valid   argument   raised  against die coining of this   money   at  home ; and yet, (or   sonic   reason   or  other, our legislators appear very slow  in moving in the matter.  TWO tVIEN FROM   BURLINGTON.  Our city council are now wrestling  with the city hall problem ; but there  is but the one way of looking at it.  They are now paying $360 a year for  a heated and lighted council chamber.  They are offeiing $100 for the use ol  the old lockup, which is not suitable  for'a couit room or loi kup, and it will  cost another $100 to liL,ht and heal it.  That will be $560 for these accommodations. They can buy and build a  suitable building for all purposes,  police offices and cells down stairs and  court room and council chamber up  stairs for from $2,000 to $2,500.  [merest on that is $200, light and heat  i>i6o more���������total $360, or a saving of  P200 a year. To our mind,this is the  only way to consider that question.  * '107 Were    BotU   Charles   C.

"Mr. Clark's  laundry was sent up to his room and  must be there yet. and p-lei'se tell Mr-  Clark to look again."  "Hang them," exclaimed Clark,  "don't they think I can see. I searched all over tlie room, amd it's noi  there."  "Oh, bv the way," said Clerk Lcw.s,  "hero are your letters, Mr. Clark." and  he handed over- the op-en oj e.iistles.  "Now, maybe I can explain about yo.ir  laundry," he continued, after the man  had finished swearing auout hte cone-  spondente being opened. "There's another Charles C. Clark here from Burlington."  "Yes, here he is." interrupt/^ the  oilier Clark, ooming up to the desk,  "and here's a bill for laundry that 1  don't owe," and hp threw down a- yellow slip before Clark Noi 1 and the  puzzled clerk.  Explanations followed. One main was  Charles (& Clark of Burlington, la.,  who had-been stopping at the hotel for  the last week, and the other was  Charles C.

When a man 'who j  has neglected j  his health finally  realizes  that he  is being attacked  by seiious ill-  pS-i. health it is no  time  for halfway measures.  Death    is    an  ^-M   enemy that  must be  IjfJvX    knocked     out  ^ in     the     first  round,   or  he  is  pretty sure  to  conquer in  the end.  A   weak  stomach, an  impaired     digestion and a disoidered liver  mean that a man is fighting the first round  with death.    Unless he manages to stiike  the knock-out   blow, it means  that  death  will come up in the second   round in the  guise of some  si-rious   malady.    When  a  man's stomach is weak and  his digestion  is impaired, the life-givimj elements of the  food he takes are not assimilated into the  blood.    The blood gets thin and weak, and  the body slowly starves.    In the meantime  the disordered "liver and the sliifrgisii bowels have forced into the blood all manner  of  impurities.     The  bod3' is  hungry and  eagerly consumes anything that the bloodstream  carries to it.     In place of healthy  nutriment, it receives for food foul poisons  that  should   have   been   excieted  by  the  bowels.    Coiitiini'-il   this system of starvation combined -.villi poisoning, will wreck  every organ   in   the body.     Naturally, the  weakest oigan  will  give way  fiist.     If a  man   is  naturally ucivous,  lie will   break  down with nervoti:, exhaustion or prostration.    If he inheiits weak  lungs, the consequence will be consumption, bronchitis,  asthma, or some disease of the air-passages.  If he has a u.'itui.illy sluggish liver, he will  suffer from a serious bilious or malarial attack.    Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures all diKiidets of the stomach, digestion and liver.   It purifies the blood and  fills it with the life-giving elements of the  food that build new and healthy (issue.    It  is (he great blood-maker aud flesh-builder  and neive tonic.    It cures qS per cent, of  all cases of consumption.  Thousands have  testified to their iccovery from this dread  disease under this great medicine.  Dr. Pierce's Pellets cure constipation.  AND OTHER INVESTMENTS.  Every "Representation Guaranteed.  SANDON. B. C.  He ittow  F.  Redistribution in Kootenay.  The Review is by no means the  mouth-piece of the C. P. R., but at  the same time, we.mistake very much  if the purchase of Heinzie's railway  ' from Trail to Rossland and the smei-  ter at the former place,, does hot mean  .. more for the Slocan than appears on  the surface. Already the company  have commenced the erection of some  very important buildings at  Rossland.  ��������� All this goes to show they intend to  handle the ores of the Kootenay���������arid  more especially the   Slocan   country.  .;-tTo do' this they must make suitable  charges for freight and treatment. To  take the business out of old established  channels, they must make the.rate's all  around satisfactory and work to the.  satisfaction of the ore producers.,  They are of course, fully 'cogni-  saht'of all this, and perhaps have long  ere this given- the matter most careful  consideration, and arrived at definite  conclusions. They have' a large  amount of money   invested   in   these  . parts, and to make jt earn interest,  they must meet the ore producers in a  proper spirit, and with suitable business proposals. The Rossland Miner  appears to have doubts of all this;  but no doubt they arc but the shadows  of old prejudices that have not yet  left its horoscope, but are ready on  any pretext to flit before .its eyes. But  a short time now will elapse, however,  before their full intentions will take  definite and ample shape.       /  j The recently compiled directory  of the province of British Columbia  shows a white population of 117,350 of  which 7S.500 are credited to the mainland and 3S,500 to Vancouver Island.  This is an increase of 100 per cent, in  four years. Vancouver Island with  aliout one fourth of the total population of the province has fourteen out  of tho thirty three members of the  Legislature.  In an article commenting on the  above figures the Rossland Miner suggest, that West Kootenay be divided as  'c-liows:  '1 he Trail Creek oleelor.il district to  consist of rhe towns 01 Rosidand and  Trail and what is known us the Trail  mining division.  .2. Kelson electoral district, ro include what is now known as the Nelson  and G6.->t river mining divisions.  . 3. Kaslo electoral districtjto include  the city of Kaslo; the towns of Ainsworth and Pilot Ba.y and what is known  as the Ainsworth mining division.  4. The Slocan electoral district to  include what is known as the Slocan  mining division.  5. The Revelstoke electoral district  to include what is known as  Revelstokw,. Illecillewaet and Trout  Lake electoral divisions. '  The above division would give West  Kootenay five members instead of two  us tit -present. ...'"''-..'  Trapped tl"' OHirer.

'  A member of the   B.C.   legislature  has advised that the province   should  be fully represented at the World's Fair  at Paris, France,in 1900.    This but is  proper and right, if the representation  is properly done.  Our ore for instance  should not be represented as all coming from Kasio, Rossland   and   Vancouver.     Our province is a   very   extensive one, and our resources   are as  rich and as varied as they well can be,  and the sections in which the   several  resources are most profusely found are  also as distinct as they  well  can   be.  The Island should be  represented as  AN EX-ALDERMAN SPEAKS.  Mr. Jas.

It is a -commonly-accepted theory  that a man steps three feet, and many  a tract of land has been "stepped off"  instead of measured with a chain.. In  the west they obviate the difficulties  of surveys by the land being divided  into sections, but in Pennsylvania  much of the property, .especially in the  mountains,.' must still be described by  metes and bounds. ; ,    '  In one of the counties in -Western  Pennsylvania are two brothers, one of  whom is tall and lank, the other short  and fat. Many, years ago they purchased a tract of mountain land calling  for a mile square. They divided the  labor of measuring it, one stepping off  one side, the other the other Fide. Then  they fenced it In and were , perfectly  satisfied until recently when suit was  brought to recover a considerable tract  of the land. , Each brother swore that  they knew the measurement to be  right, and told how, it had been done.  Then, as the spectators saw the short  legs of the one, scarcely long enough  to reach the floor when he. sat ln a  chair, and the elongated extremities of  the other, there was a general laugh,  in which the judge and attorney joined. Upon surveying, it'was found that  one line was a mile and a half long,  and the other only a little over half  a. mile.    ,  HER ANSWER IN THREE LETTEKS.  Trade Marks  Designs  Copyrights &c.

FEBRUARY 26, 1898.  THE MINING REVIEW.  PIIGI1ISLW.  The Premier and Leader of the Opposition Cross Swords. -  Mr.  Semlin Pleads for Roads and Trails  and Hon.  Mr. Turner   Makes a  Strong Reply.  The debate on the address delivered  at the fourth session of the seventh  parliament of British Columbia com-  meneed on Monday.  Major Mullcr (Cowichan) moved the  address. After alluding in terms of  praise to the beauty of the parliament  buildings, he proceeded to discuss the  public revenue, and showed by actual  figures that the province had made  ���������wonderful progress between the years  1S87 and 1897. He referred to the need  of an all-Canadian railway to and  through the Boundary country .referred  to the need ofa redistrihution bill, and  concluded by predicting that the province is about to enjoy a remarkable era  of prosperity.  Mr. Adams (Cariboo) followed  in   a  similar vein.  Mr. Semlin, the lender of the opposition, in a mildly sarcastic s-peuch, said  ^Jie  was rather   mystified   as   to   the  meiining of Ihe remarks of tho   mover  and seconder of the reply.  He not had  been able to gather from   their   utterances whether or not they   desired   to  give the government all the lionor   for  the discovery of the Klendykc, hut   so  '   it seemed from fclin tenor of theirohser-  vations. , The Klondykc  finds  would  undoubtedly increase   the   prosperity  and  prestige   of    British     Columbia  , materinlly, and he was glad to see  (lie  the honorable gentlemen opposite suy-  gest the necessity   of  improving   the  means of communion tion north in connection therewith, as   the advantages  to be derived from the opening of   this  new and pr lltable trade would accrue  very largely to our   cousins   over   the  boundary.   If, on tho other hand, proper means of communication were   afforded, it was most probable   that  the  exploration and development of northern British Columbia would be  materially hastened through the discoveries  farther north���������tho great  requirements  were railways and ordinary roads  and  trails.   As to the eloquent   peroration  of the member''for Cowichan-Alherni,  and the quotation ''lest we forget"   the  government had forgotten   the  prayer  of the distant districts for tiettcr roads;  it had forgotten the repeated   requests  made to it for improvements necessary  for the development of the   Intent   re-  rources of the country, and while building a palace  for  its   own   occupancy,  had  forgotten  the   poor  settlers   and  their needs in a  manner   which   they  had good cause   to   remember.     Congratulation had been heaped upon  the  government for  the   inoronse   in   the  provincial revenue, and all   would join  in expressing pleasure that the revenue  had so incieascd.   At the  sifne   time  it should not be forgotten that the expenditure had also increased, and in a  manner even more rapid   and   worthy  of serious consideration. He too hoped  that tho time would   come   when   the  revenue of the country would be suflicient for its expenditures,   but so   far  there was no  reason  to   believe   that  this time was any nearer at hand than  ten years ago.   This happy   time   had  certainly not yi t arrived, nor did   the  public accounts disclose any reason to  believe   that   it   was   near   at   hand.  There were some things that he   could  not congratulate thegovernmentupon,  and one of these arose   in   connection  with the act of last session relating   to  the employment of Chinese and Japanese on works of   companies   receiving  special concessions . from   the   house.  This measure had passed, by   a majority although sct eral  members  of   the  government had seen fit to   vigorously  oppose it, and having lx������en passed   by  the house it was the duty of   the   government to see that its provisions were  carried out���������cither this, or   resign   to  the people whose wishes are expressed  by the legislature'they had not carried  -.  flUt.    But this is not. what   had   heen  acne.   He did not say   they   had   not  been sincere,  but   the   circumstances  prima facie pointed to insincerity, and  called for a   better   explanation   than  , h-d yet been made or even attempted.  ' ApHe referred to the fact that members  of the government had seen fit to allow  their names to be placed   on   prospectuses of   mining .companies   and   expressed tho belief  that   such  conduct  could   not   to   be   too   strongly   condemned.  The premier, in roponding, remarked  that the cry for roads and trails and  other public works had been met by  liberal expenditures by the government. Had the electors been told  ten years ago of the enormous works  that would in the next decade be accomplished they could not believe that  credit could be obtained to enable any  government to accomplish what now  has been do e. .For a province of less  than 100,000 white inhabitants, British  Columbia has done more in railways,  ���������in useful and necessary public works,  in charities and education than any  ' other provinces of thcDominion or o*  any other colony of Great Britain, and  the govornmei.t could therefore truly  say, "we have not forgotten.'" The  leader of the opposition had referred  to the increase in expenditure while  the revenue was mounting up by leaps  and bounds. Of course the expenditure  had increased���������had ^the  government  not seen lo il that tho machinery   and  public works oi the comiln k"pt pace  with its development    and   necessities  the governmnt would indeed have been  blumable.   The increase   ol  tlie   debt  was not only natural, but it  was   evidence    in    itself    that    the     affairs  of    tho     province      had     bec-n     so  wisely administered that it was   possible   for   the   government   to    borrow  money readily for thu   prosecution   of  m'cessary public   works   which   wore  indeed the best  assets  of   a   country.  No one with any broad grasp of public  questions would attempt to say that it  was either possible or desirable to con-  line the country's expenditures to   the  revenue in the present stage of British  Columbia's development.     Had   this  policy been adhered   to,   where  would  Kootenay be today- if only the avail-  revenne had been drawn upon  for the  building of the   roads   and   trails   by  which that rich district had been satis  Inctorily  opened.     Ho   delended   his  connection with   certain  development  companies    by   saying   thai   he   was  proud he had been the means,of  bring-  in.: money to tlie province for  investment., i  FRQIYI THREE FORKS TO CODY.

The New Denver Ledge says a guest  at a hotel in that place said that the  top of a mountain was on lire when he  saw the sun rising, and that his mistake arose from being a S.nulonite.

A few day i after he was arrested  near Nelson, and is doubtless   how   in  .   .a fair way to the gallows.-     The shooting was the result ofa ibw   over   $2.00  in a drunken bnw! at that-town.  -���������������������������������������������   Rev.

C. Eraser, M. P. P., of Brandon,-  Man., en route to the coast,.stopped off  a day to see the Sandon of which. In  had heard so much. He felt like tin-  Queen, of Sheba at the .sight in the  oast'of which the half had not been  told. He found rhc place larger than  he had expected to see it, three hotels  in size, equipment and comfort vastly  superior to anything in his own city,  a club room that in 'appointments  would do credit to any of tlie larger  cities of the older provinces, and an  export of ore from Sandon alone equaling in value one-third 6-' the entire  wheat crop of his own province.  If the City Council can get any man  to put up suflicient bonds.and take the  treasurership at  $100 a year,'they are  not offering  too  much  for all-offices.  combined, as all the work can be done  for $1,100 si year, and should not cost  more.   If on the other hand, they cannot  get  the treasurership   taker,   for  that money,  which is likely to be, the  Case, then they are paying  Mr. Sewell  too much  for his duties.   As we have-  often said there is  no necessity for a  collector;   they   have none   in  many  cities in Canada of ten times Sandon's  population.   The road and dog  taxes  ought to be collected by the day policeman, as they are in most other places  in Canada, when  the  treasurer would  have but to notify tne realty,tax-pay-  era, through  the post ofn-;e, and thev  should pay him.. Arranging othorwise  is only giving people a  bad habit and  paying out salaries,  which   have   to  come out of taxes, for nothing.   Every  one may not agree with  this view of  the question ; but it is the view taken  elsewhere, and there is no reason Sandon should be an exception.  p-OR OVER FIFTY YEARti.  Jlrs.
