Some Interesting  Reminiscences.  r>>  fo  u  Capt. Moore of Three Forks was in  the city this week and was a guest at  the Victoria. The captain has a history that if written out in full and published would seem as an inspiration to  the youth of the land as showing what,  may be accomplished in the way of accumulating wealth with no capital to  start with other than a laudable ambition backed by energy and determination.  Twpnty-four years ago Capt. Moore's  total capital was ambition andastrong  right arm. . To-day his fortune runs  well up in six figures. "Some people  would say that tlrs is luck, but' the  history of Capt. Moore's start for a  fortune shows that if Vie had luck  enough to take him around the Cape  of Good Hope on a shingle and land  him without wetting his feet it would  Thave availed him nothing had he been  lacking in energy and determination,  and a short acquaintance with the  gentleman shows that he has an excellent stock of both. A, stranger might  easily mistake him for a bishop, with  his smoothly shaven face, closely set  lips and a rotundity, of figure that, in-1  dicatea a generous care of the inner  man. But the delusion is readily dispelled ijrhen the stiahger ripens . into  an acquaintance. Tho captain may  look like a bishop, but the merry twinkle in his friendly blue eyes tell very  decidedly that he has no intention of  attempting to act"out the character.  Capt. Moore when a boy went   into  the Lake Superior mining regions   Ho  ,   tad no particular jobjin sight, but was  ready to work at anything that   would  provide him with a grubstake for prospecting, nnd every dollar that   e earned went in t hat way.   In 1872   his   efforts were rewarded in the discovery of  the famous Geo'gebic iron  range,   rnn-  ��������� ning through Michigan and Wisconsin,  -  which proved such   a   bonanza   when  opened.up in 1884, his   profits   out   of  these properties ran his fortune at one  tiiue up to a million and'a half of dollars, but he dropped a portion  of  this  when the slump came in the iron" market '87, retaining, however, to   prevent  him from worrying over the price  of  coal or any possible change in the pro-  Tision market.  An incident in  Capt.   Moore's   life  ���������' which shows the spirit that   animated  his every effort is told by himself.    After the discovery of the Geogebic  iron  range, and before the   locations   were  recorded, he returned-to "Ashland.. Wis.,  where   he   was   taken' seriously     ill.  While lying in bed,   unable   to   move  "without the assistance   of  attendants,  a friend called and told him   that   the  man who was with him when the locations were made had given the   details  of the locations to other   parties   and  the latter had left the day before to go  to Warsaw, 150 miles   distant,   where  the record office is located,   with   the  intention of recording the property in  their own names.   That settled it. The  chance of losing the   property,, which  was hia only chance for  remuneration  for his years of struggling   and   hardships, was too much, and in the face of  the protests of his friends   and   physician, he got up, dressed and   took   the  road.   The other persons, anticipating  no trouble, were   travelling   leisurely,  and he passed th' m where  they   were  camped for the night, about 115 miles  from Warsaw.   He came   up   on   the  party so unexpectedly that it took   his  breath away.  ''1 stood for a few minutes," (he captain said, "watching them, and when  aatisfied that I had not heen seen, I  backed up until I waa out of sight, and  then made a circuit of their camp." In  making the remainder of the journey,  Capt. Moore walked 101 miles in a foot  of snow without sleep or rest ������f any  kind, and when the others arrived they  found him engaged in a sociable game  of enrdi with the recorder. Their surprise can better be guessed at than de  scribed.  One of the incidents of the trip was  an arrangement that Capt. Moore made  with a conductor named Tom Mitchell,  who waa running a mixed train from  station 141 to Warsaw on the Wisconsin Central, which was being built.  Mitchell agroed not to take the other  party through if it reached the station  in the morning.  Mitchell was not called upon to fill  bis part of the agreement, but as his  intentions were good, Capt. Moore gave  him a tractof - land which he afterwards sold for $40,000.  Capt. Moore has just sold hia interest in the Idaho, Alamo, and Cum b er-  land mines and the concentrator . and  tramway near Three Forks, and ia also  offering his stock of merchandise fo r  sale. Hejsays, however^this is no in  dication that he intends to leave the  country as he is'heavily  interested in  mining properties on the north fork  of Carpenter creek, and these properties he intends to work extensively  thif year. Capt. Moore'is also extensively interested in mining properties  in Idaho and Southern California.  Speaking of the prospects for British  Columbia, Mr. Moore said that it was  destined to be the greatest mining  country in the world. The fall in the  price ef silver and the Klondyke excitement would set the country back  for a time, but it would only ,be temporary.  >. Ca pt. Moore is a personal friend of  Mark Hanna, and is also interested  with him in some business enterprises.  He predicts that President M-'Kinlpy's  mnnntr'er will not, he defeated for Senator from Ohio, as he said that be 'had,  known him for a Errp.it many yparsand  had yet to see him defeated in any  oh'ect he sought to entertain.  Captain Moore has a palatial home  in Spokane, whieh he ir now visitinc.  On his return he PxpeotR fo hrintr Mrs.  Moore with him, in which rase, ho  will remain'for some time n������ the enept  of Mr. and Mrs. Sloan at the   Victoria.  Tt will be crratifyinrr to everyonn in  the Slocan country to know that Capt.  Moore still retains an interest in the  country whiob he has done so much in  the past to develop.���������Pioneer.  ��������� fil  Omitted 'From   Our   Last   Issue.  -Obituary.  ,,     MRS. GEORGE LOVATT.  Our citizens'! were painfully shocked  on Tuesday last to hear of the death of  Mrs   Geo. Lovatt,  as  few   had  heard  previously of her being unwell.   About  aweekliefore she went over to visit  her daughter,  Mrs. Nash, living'afew  rods distant, and while there she complained   of feeling   very   chilly.    On  taking her home Mr. Nash found her  shivering as if chills had taken a hold  on her.   On reaching homo, the usual  simple remediea   that suggest   themselves on such occasions  were tried,  and during the night and next morning  she expressed herself as feeling better,  though as things turned out her illness  only appeared to be taking hold.   That  night she declined  to have a doctor,  but next day^ Dr. Powers A'as called in  and deceased was under his care until  Tu sday   morning,   when  Dr. Young  was also called in  and a  consultation  was held.   From the indications they  concluded hopes for'her reooveryrwere"  alcnder.   In   a .short time Dr. Young  was again sent forand he said he could  render  no. service,   and   she   passed  peacefully away in a couple of hours  or so after.  The corpse was laid in a nice  casket with beautiful floral wreatli8  provided by Mrs. C. M. Wilson. Her  remains were taken by Thursday's train  lo the New Denver cemetery, where all  that is mortal of the respected lady  are now in lasting rest. The services  were performed by the Rev. J. Clel-  land; Presbyterian minister. The  Orange Brotherhood, of which Mr.  Lovatt is an old-time member, attended the funeral in a body aa did many  of the old time citizens.  The deceased lady was in her 62nd  year, and had only come-to this country in August last from her home in  Toronto for a short sta\, ac she had  decided to return again in the spring.  She leaves her husband, one son and  two daughters, Mrs. Nash here, and  Mrs. Nash, in Toronto. Ker disease  was pneumonia with probably some  bronchial complication.  Wc thought that in the compilation  of our list of new buildings for last  week's issue, we exercised a great deal  of care and overlooked nothing. From  representations marie to us since the  paper appeared, we find we.made several oversights, and fo the owners of the  properties overlooked, we"owe an apology. So far as we can get them, our  omissions are:  Addition   to   livery stable   by  Mr. Harris..../. $1,800  Mr.     Mongomery's    residence  near Methodifit church        800  M. L.

He was in good  health and spirits. He said that the  great rush to Klondyke was not in his  opinion justified by the existing situation. Everything working, the price  cf Jiving being as it was, had been  taken up, and while there doubtless  would be more rich strikes, no one  knew when or'where they would be  made He expected by working steadily to make a few thousands in a year  or so, and under all the" circumstances  was glad that lie went in, as he would  be able in any event to lay by some-  and at the same time .stood a chance  of being one of the fortunate ones. He  had work secured for the winter at  $1.50 per hour. Flour was $2 a pound,  but Norman had his winter supplies.  He Seyerly Handles Secretary Gage's  Financial  Bill.  the pastor, confessed that he, in company with other boys, rigged up a.dcvil  suit, and knowing the -subject of his  father's sermon, concealed himself behind a chair and awaited the arrival of  the audience.  With Scissors and Pen.  L  The Dayton Group is the Property that  Makes the Strike.  The Wonderful Group.  At an adjourned meeting of. the  stockholders of the Wonderful Group  Mining Company, held in Spokane on  Monday evening, the following gentlemen were clcoted as the board of trustees for the ensuing year: J. M. Armstrong, F. A. Davis, IT. A. Bell, George  Wooster, C. R. Conner, C. "R. Brown  and C. H Thompson. \11 these were  members of 'he former board, with  the exception of George Wooster and  C. R. Conner, who take the places of  Col. W. W. D. Turner and E.J. Field.  Col. Turner requested to be left out  bec.uisc of the pressure of other business, and Mr. Field was defeated,  receiving only the votes' of his own  shares. He was also summarily dismissed from his positions aa manager  and attorney for the province. Mr. D.  Wallbridge has been uppointed agent  for the company in place of Mr. Field.  What action will be taken, in view of  the unfortunate disagreement, has not  been stated.  ���������-    - -      ,-���������>.*.  The Charleston Strike.  h Local Hockey Skirmish.  From the warhoops on the rink on  Tuesday night, akin to those of the  redskins at the battle of Tyconderoga,  a passerby could easily imagine there  was something unusual on the wing  at the rink. It turned out to be a  hockey match for bivalves between  picked men on both sides of Heco ave.,  as follows :  At a depth of 300 feet in a tunnel  the Charleston mine near Whitewater  made a phenomenal strike the other  day. The Kootenaian says this of it:  Vertically frrm the location of the  strike to the surface is about 260 fret,  but following the dip of the ledge is  nearer 300 feet. A sample assay of the  ore body<gave the following returns:  720 ounces of silver t nd 43 per -cent,  lead, and one of the recent visitors to  the property, J. Ward Bell, remarked :  "You could knock down nearly a carload of ore with a single shot."  The original owners of the property  were Wm. Mathcson, Robert Shielland  Henry Cody, all oldtimers in the Slocan country. In July, 1896, Mr. Mitchell; representing Winnipeg parties,  bonded the claim for S15,000. He has  met'each payment as it has become  flue, and in all has spent $33,000 on the  property up'to date, with the result'  that hia perseverance has at last been  rewarded. Should the ore body encountered hold out anywhere near its  present value the Charleston will rank  foremost among the. dividend payers  of the Slocan district.  There appears to be no limit to the  hidden wealth of the Sandon section  of tho Slocan country. Scarcely a day  passes when active work is under way  that a strike is not found in either  some new property or one under stopping operations. Last week as workmen were busy on development work  on the Dayton group, adjoining the  Payne tramway, close to the Silver  Bell, they struck concentrating ore the  full width of their tunnel. How much  wider it is fiey do not know, for as yet  they have uncovered but the one wall.  They are now bu^y excavating for the  second wall. Thoy have since driven  the tunnel in a number of feet and  they find the mass of concentrating ore  containing chuncks of pure galena,  iron and carbonates in profitable bodies. Mr. Steel is tlie local manager,  and the owners live in Spokane.' As  local people owi* nviny riroperties in  that neighborhood, they all naturally  hope the wealtn of the Dayton may be  found to be verv extensive.  At a banquet held in Chicago in  commemoration of Jackson Day, W. J.  Bryan was the speaker of the evening.  In the course of his remarks he took  up Secretary Gage's financial bill and,  criticising it said in part:  "The present secretary of the tre is-  nry, Mr. Gage, is eminently fitted to  be the instrument of the financiers in  their efforts to complete the scheme  commenced 24 years ago and continued without interruption until the  present day. , He possesses a sublime  faith in the superiority of money over  man, and a supreme contempt for the  rights, the intc-rests and the opinion of  the poonle at lar^e. He knows that  the gold standard was adopted in the  United States without any party ever  asking for it; he kuows that in the  campaign of 1806 adoption no party  ever dared to commend it; he knows  tlifit in the campaign of 1896 the partj  eomposod of bolting democrats was  the only party which dared to declare  the gold standard a blessing; he knows  AT THE   HOTELS.  Gurliana.  " The curlers of" Sandon- and Kaalo  commenced a wrestle for the supremacy and the Bostock silver cup on  the rink here yesterday afternoon. One  of the conditions relating to the cup  is, that it is to be competed for on the  Sandon rink only. The clubs in battle  array were as follows :  Kaslo Sandon.  Whittier lead. Main  Fletcher 2nd Moffat t  Rae 3rd McDonald  Waugb skip Hall  Sixteen ends were played in the  ifternoon when the score stood 16 to  13 in favor of Sandon. Some most excellent playing was done all through.  As we go to press early every' Friday  evening we arc, without the  scoring of the evening match or the  result of the oyster feed later on in the  evening; but are give to the belief  Sandon still holds the laurels even  against cracked players.

McMartin  What with putting the puck through  the wrong goal an I sundry diversions  of that kind, referee Grierson had his  hands full keeping ''the house in  order," though he considered choking  off the laughter of the spectators a task  too much for Hercules. After, an  hour's lively fight with the sticks it  was found that Dr. Young's side (the  Recos) was ahead in the ballot box,  thoug i it is generally conceded that  the other side quite evened up at the  oyster tabic an hour or so later.

Yours truly,  Wm. Ferry, Blenheim, Ont.  The Spokane Chronicle of Saturday  last announced, upon the authority ot  an interview, that it was reported at  Sandon that a one half interest in the  Ruth mines had been sold to an English syndicate for ������600,000. The negotiations, he said, have been pending  for some time, and were only successfully olesed a day or two ago.  Mr. George Alexander, of this city,  the local representative of "The Ruth  Mines," was, shown the Chronicle's  statement by. a representative of, the  Kootenaian, but declined to confirm it.  .He said that there was nothing which  he could give te> the public iu this connection, with the affair. If at, any  time negotiations for the sale of any  interest in the property were cqncluiL.  ed, he would communicate, the fact to  the Kootenaian.���������-Kootenaian.  Ore Shipmeuts.  We gaye last week the ore shipments  from the stations at rfandon for 1897 as  24.789J tons. To this, to show the aggregate output of the surroundings  tributary to the city, we should give  those of Three Forks and McQniga.ii  as the supplies for both camps are  principally got here, and tho banking  business of both is largely done in this  city. To-day we are in a position to  announce the shipments from Three  Forks for the past year as 2,303f tons.  In the course of a few days we will  have those of McGuigan to swell tho  aggregate, which will doubtless be considerably in excess of 30,000 tons,  that at the polls 90 per cent, of the  voters registered their opposition to a  single gold standard, differing only as  to the means of securing bimotalism ;  he knows that the president, to whose  partiality he owes his position, sent a  commission to Europe to beg other  nations to help n������. get nd of the gold  stnnd-ird; he knows that th- aenate  and house, with acarcely a dissenting  voice, appropriated $100,000 of the  people's money to pay the expenses of  the commission while it wis seeking  relief from the gold standard; he knows  that France, by joining in the demand  for international bimetnlism, condemned the gold standard; he knows  that the farmers, the laborers, and to a  large extent the manufacturers of England desire international bimetalism ;  he knows that the maintenance of the  gold standard means unmerited advantage to the money-owning and the  bond-holding. classes, is undeserved  punishment to the vast majority of the  people of this country and of the civilized world ; and yet in spite of hia  knowledge of all these facts he is deliberately planning to fasten the gold  standard permanently upon the people  of the United States."  Refering to the future outlook for  the bimetallic party Mr. Bryan said :���������  "Since the last celebration of Jackson day thousands of political prqd-  igala have returned to the old home  and thousands more are growing weary  of the husks. There is no humiliation  in ^tho acknowledgement of error. To  a large portion of our people the  money question waa a new question in  1896, and as we demanded affirmative  action the timid and only half-convinced array themselves against us.  Since tho election there has been food  for further study, and events in rapid  succession have been dictating the  position taken by the bimetallic forces  in the last campaign. The republicans, too, intoxicated by success, have  been disclosing schemes which were  carefully concealed during the contest.  We may, therefore, expect continuous  accessions to our ranks."

The Wasco group, a mile back from  Champion station in the Salmon river ,  district, was sold yesterday for $20,000  to the Wilkinson Exploration syndicate of London,-England. The sellers  were John J. McKane and R. W-. Gri-"  gan. Tbe purchaser was represented  by Dr. I. W. Pcwell of Victoria. The  group consists of seven claims, the  Wasco, the Franklyn, the Minnesota,  the Hammond, the Squak, the Eastetn  Oregon and the Lytton. Assays as  high as $33 have been secured, in gold,  silver and copper. It is the intention  of the Wilkinson syndicate to put five  men at work on the property ��������� at once.  Mr. McKane will have charge of the  development of the group.  Thero are properties tributary to  Slocan lake points, New Denver, Silver-  ton, Slocan City and Rosebery that  promise to equal ii not surpass any of  the big mines of the Kootenay, and on  these alone fully 400 men are employed this winter-Others are preparing to  open in the spring-an-��������� it is confidently expected that 1,000 men will be employed on properties close ,to Slocan  lake this season. As some of the mines  working in this section we might mention The Galena Farm, Nancouver,  Thompson, Frisco, Fidelity, Cameron-  ian, Republican, Two Friends, Howard  Fraction. Arlington, Prescott, Cracker  Jack and several Wilson creek properties.   Slocan City News.

He is an eloquent man, and  he pointed the arch-fiend in vivid colors: At the climax of the description,  a being dressed up to represent a devil,  with large and switching tail,shambled  up the aisle, blowing smoke from its  nostrils and bellowing: "I am the  devil, and I want all of you."       |  The audience became panic stricken.  Men, women and children were hurled  to the floor arid trampled upon in the  mild rush for the door. In the confusion the stove was upset and the building ignited. Before the horrified  members had regained their senses the  fire had made such headway that all  attempts to save the ' church were in  vain.'  This morning  George Akin, son of  In the chambers yesterday the  junction to restrain plaintiff in  Ruth Mines rs. Lovatt was continued.  The Ruth mines near Sandon were located prior to the Kaalo & Slocan railway grant and were, it is claimed, excepted from the grant. The Kaslo &  Slocan railway, after taking up their  grant gave a lease to defendant, Lovatt,  to cut timber on land a portion of  which was7 covered by Ruth mines.  Plaintiffs thereupon, secured an injunction restraining Lovatt from cutting timber on the miens, and this injunction was yesterday continued.���������  Vancouver World.  MINING RECORDS.

During the past week experts connected with English mining companys,  one of them the Mcintosh Co., who are  investing largely in the Kootenay  country, spent several days In this  city. They were very reticent as to  business, in fact to a Review reporter  they had noth1 ing for publication. It  is a"fact, however, they made visits to  some-of the oldest and best mines  here, collecting all the statistics they  could from.the managers.

As taxes from realty assessments  will not be available for many months,  our new council are ��������� face to face with  ���������the question : Where shall we get immediate funds to pay salaries, make  local improvements from time to time  and pay incidental expenditures? The  law permits the council to borrow from  banks and private individuals, but  when rates of interest are as high as  they are here, this expedient is to be  avoided while other means of raising  money are available.  We believe miners' licenses and poll  taxes have in any event to go to the  "* government; but all monies arising  from realty assessments by the government, hotel and business licenses collected by them in advance of this date  must be refunded to the city, though  in the usual course of things refunds  will be slow. The council can collect  two dollars from the owners for every  dog in the city, which, from the ructions on the streets at times, should  bring in a considerable sum ; they can  collect a road tax oi $2.00 per head  from all men in the city who do not  pay a realty or business tax; a business tax from all who did not pay the  government collector when on his  rounds the other day; hotel, saloon  and wholesale liquor licenses from all  dealers, who have not paid'in advance  to the government As the law also  provides for collecting as high as $50  a year from houses other than hotels at  which liquors are sold, from $400 to  $500 can bs collected from eight or  ten such houses in the place. These  collections promptly made should meet  demands until the local government  refunds arrive, and the latter should  float "the machine till the realty taxes  in the fall are available.  The taxes to be raised by the late  realty assessment of the government,  will, if raised, have to revert to the  city, though the probability is the government will not collect within the city  limits under that assessment, now that  we' have mutiicipnl autonomy. If  raised, however, they, would hardly be  sufficient in themselves, a supplemental  rate would have to be struck for educational and other such purposes  While we are speaking on this question of assessment, however, there is  one anomaly that must, in the interest  of the community be corrected as far  as possible. There is no provision foi  assessing personal eflects, stocks of  merchandise or incomes in diis. country���������nearly all is on the Henry George  system���������a land and improvements tax  This is manifestly unfair, as the principle of taxation is to raise revenues  from all in proportion to their means.  We will give an illustration of this unfairness : Mr. Harris, for instance,  has nearly all he possesses in this city  in real estate and improvements there  on, and he is liable to taxation on  them at a fair-market value, no matter  if there were liabilfties against them,  while Clifle & Co. renting two of  Mr. Harris' buildings, who have their  means in the city in merchandise and  chattels, are not assessable for a cent  beyond the business license of $10 a  year. Any lawyers, medical men or  other professional people who do not  own real estate, and aie earning a lot  of money pay no taxes beyond an insignificant professional license. \ The  injustice of all this is too palpable to  require further explanation. Our new  council should at once, petition the  legislature for power to either tax merchandise, over and above liabilities  against.it, and incomes, or to levy business and professional taxes according  to volume of business and incomes of  professional men. The idea is lo  equalize payments for the city's maintenance, and not to allow some, because of their peculiar calling, to go  Scott free, while the poor land owner,  mortgaged and all though he may be,  has to pay the piper.  Whilst the general feeling is that  liquor licenses in general should be  kept well up in cost, discrimination  should be used.. Saloon keepers that  make all the-revenue from sales, and  go to no expense to keep up; a house  should pay a. good round license, and  all hotel, keepers before getting licenses should have adequate accommodations as stopping places and  boarding houses, to equalize revenue  and outlay as far as possible.  day were run in the interests of an organization of men to carry out wishes  of their own, regardless of the wishes  of the community at large. We  should be sorry if it should transpiie,  in the interest of the place, if time  proves there is a foundation for the  impression. The new council in the  appointment of officials and organization of municipal machinery generally,  will do much to either establish conviction in this channel or disabuse  public belief in the rumor altogether.  So far as The Review is concerned,  we do not intend to become the mouthpiece of either party, tool, clique Olfaction. We have the general welfare  of the place, without fear or favor to  any, to look after, and this resolution  alone shall determine our future.  Situated as the city is the inteiests  of any one man resident are the interests of all. Nothing of a public  character can be encouraged that will  not prove of some service to all. This  should centre the community in unity  of action. Men' will, while the world  lasts, have a choice of men for representative positions and in making selections no obstacles should be thrown  in the way by any who are in position, that the wish of not the few, but  the majority, may prevail. When that  wish is known, all should bow submissively and make a united effort to  strengthen the hands of the men  chosen in working "for the common  welfare of the place. Where this is  not done���������where victories of a sectional character are sought to be  snatched���������the eflort -always results in  injury to the place. We, then, sincerely hope.for the benefit of the place,  that the new council will in no way  give grounds for advancing the suspicion to which we have referred���������and  that on assurance on this fact the entire community will settle down to  ways and means to promote our common welfare. As channels in this  direction present themselves to us  from time to time, it will be our pleas-  ureable duty to advance them, and we  should be glad to have suggestions  from any quarter in the shape of correspondence. With our depth of mineral wealth surrounding, easily accessible by a moderate expenditure, all  that is necessary is proper advertising  abroad, faith in our future at .home  and a unanimity o( action always presented to visitors and others, to eficct  the desired end. An ounce of eflort  in these directions will accomplish  more for the place than a ton of  squabbling over local differences can  ever possibl) secure.  country at a stretch without a road,  though the people living in these now,  and the thousands that will live' in  1'iem in the future, must continue pay-  rig taxes, to the roads that have'developed the old Province of Ontario.  ,i\re repeat, the Globe forever for morality and equity.  We have heard the past week all  sorts of rumors and remarks about  Mr. Sandiland's rulings as returning  (fficer, in refusing to recognise two  rumination papers handed him on  Saturday last. The whole matter rests  on two points, and as they are both  legal points, we are not in a position  to express opinions on them. As a  matter of fact Mr. Sandilands was not  compelled to explain the law to any  one 'on the occasion, but the points we  allude to aie these : If the law governing the whole election was specified in the act incorporating the city,  then his refusal to accept the two  nominations referred to was irregular ;  or if insisting on a deposit on receiving those two nomination papers," and  receiving them when the deposits weic  handed in constituted them legal nominations, his act was irregular. Under any other circumstances his refusal  to consider them was quite in order.  The question involves nice legal points  and until they are decided, we can  express no opinion.  One of the first things the new council should do is look afier the safety of  the city from' fire. If the day policeman is a competent man, and lie  should be, he should look after this  with other duties. We have as good  a water supply as can be got in the  country ; but with our narrow streets  it is a question how far it could be  made serviceable with our fire appliances, if a fire secured much headway  in some of our larger blocks. The  means of prevention of fires then should  be the first thought of the council.  Our fire chief should be a ' paid man,  and he should have at his command  efficient assistants in emergency, who  might be paid for assistance when  rendered. All tin chimneys should  be removed by order of the official,  above as well as below the roof, and  brick structures substituted; stables  and sheds with inflammable matter,  should be removed from the immediate rear of business places, and all  other dangerous places in the heart of  the city put: into passable form.  Heavy stocks; of coal oil and such  articles should be kept a distance  away. . Destructive fires "will occur be  as careful as we may, and they are the  more serious when the place is without  insurance, so all the precaution 'that  can be taken' should be strictly .enjoined.  ' A health officer should also be appointed, when his services might be  required, to see that as soon as the  thaw commences in the spring all  back yards :ire properly looked after.  The owners or occupants of all buildings ought to be compelled to collect  all garbage or refuse, to be carted  away by a hired scavenger, as soon as  collected to a safe distance from the  place, and there cremated until a  sewer system ,is built by the city. Let  us have a clean, healthy city with as  much immunity from fire as possible  even at a considerable cost. Some  may think rigidity in these respects a  hardship, but it is a serious matter lo  have the safety of the place from fire,  or the health of the community imperiled in any way by the acts of a few  individuals.  AND OTHER INVESTMENTS.  When a-young woman sits down and  ponders over her rutinc life, tlitre is one  all-important subject which she should not  forpret.

The woman who suffers in this way will be a weak,  nervous, sickly, petulant wife, an incapable  mother and an unamiable hostess.

There is a' feeling in   some quarters  of the city that  the elections of Satur-  The Toronto Globe is an organ of  remarkable virtue i and consistency.  It is now advocating the' discontinuance of government subsidies to railways. Since the '���������'railway age" of  Canada in the palmy days of .Sir  Francis Hincks, some $40,000,000 of  Canadian cash has been sunk in railways in Ontario���������one-half, the amount  in,the Grand Trunk���������net'working.the'  province from.one end to the other, at  the expense of the people of Canada,  and now the virtuous Globe wants no  more of it. This is the consistency  and virtue-that the angels of light.so  much admire. When the Globe cannot find a part of Ontario the size of  a good cornfield without a railway, at  the expense of the whole of Canada,  it snouts, "Halt! Canada has enough  of roads at the cost of the public  purse." Here in British Columbia we  have   scores and  scores  of miles of  Some people speak of uniting the  offices of clerk, treasurer, assessor and  collector all under one person ? others  approve of giving the offices to four.  Perhaps a compromise is best. The  assessorship should be a separate office, and in the hands of a man who  is acquainted with real estate values  and the cost of buildings and improvements. There is no need for a separate collector, as all who owe taxes  should call at the treasurer's office'to  make payments and get proper receipts. The sec.-treasurer and collector might well then be the one man,  and the assessor separate for a check.  Dog taxes, wood taxes and the like  should be collected by the chief of  police as they are in most other cities  in Canada.  ..CURE..  TORPID LIVER,  CONSTIPATION,  SICK HEADACHE,  AND DYSPEPSIA.  A S a laxative, one pill acts perfectly,  and if a^ stronger action is desired  a cathartic effect is produced by two  pills.

"Victoria, Jan.���������The Canadian Pacific  .Navigation company's steamer Danube  -left this morning for Seattle under unusual circumstances. A few days ago  -word Ct.mc to the company that the  "vessel was to be seized upon her arrival  at Dyea. To prevent any trouble and  inconvenience to the' passengers going  iiorth on the Danube the company decided to ser-d the vessel to Seattle to  lave the matter settled. The threatened seizure is supposed to be the outcome of the trouble Captain Myer had  Tvith the United States authorities at  Dyea last year. Word came this afternoon that.the Danube had been duly  seized by the deputy collector at  Seattle^ '  - ' In a letter to Geo. F. Stelly, now in  ' possession of Collector Milne, F. Aiur-  ' rav of Skagway, alleges that Mr.Smith,  the United States commissioner at  Dyea and Skngway, claims a strip of  land three miles down from the ��������� head  of lake'Bennett; taking in McLebd's  police, station. _ The head of la e Bennett is very near the boundary as defined by the United Stntes, and this  strip of land would give tho United  ;'i.Statescoritrol of the territory from the  coast to the lake., - The commissioner,  Mr. Murray alleges, has ordered all, lo-;  cations of lots to be recorded with  him.  A party of Americans, Mr. Murray  says, followed up the commissioners'  declarations by hoisting the American  ������ flag just below the police 'barracks,  where the Union Jack wns flying. The  police, the letter continues, immediately went down and demanded an explanation. Aftei some parleying the  flag was hauled down and an apology  ^ras tendered.   ���������  The territory now claimed by the  Americans is in British Columbia, and,  Mr. Murray says, the -government  Bhould certainly have some officers  there.

When' the riot started in  Havana he was near the first newspaper office attacked. He- says that  the mob was led by Spanish officers  and volunteers, who became enraged  . over the autonomist articles in the  papers. They attacked the offices of  La D:scussion and La Dairio do la  Marina, totally wrecking them. The  news of the riot reached Blanco and he  sent officers from his personal staff to  quell the mob. There was a phatoon  pf regulars, in charge of a Spanish  colonel, and as s ion as ho "spoke the  mob recognized him and made a  demonstration against him. Hot words  ensued apd some volunteers slapped  the colonel's face. He was then seized  and his badge torn off and trampled on  the ground. The crowd all the time  prying "Vive Spain."  TJie colonel's uniform was torn off  /and the crowd then proceeded to the  office of La Lucha,:a semi-Government  organ, and smashed presses and threw  the type into the streets El Recon-  centradoi suffered the same fate a few  minutes later. All this was done because these papers favored   autonomy.  DON'T GO ON.

Edison, jr., has evolved apian fof the  utilization of power in the production  of light, heat and electricity, which if  carried into effect, will revolutionize  the industrial world in a more radical  manner than havo all the inventions  of his illustrious father. Young Edison  proposes to harness the ocenn nnd compel it to do the bidding of man. He  would erect an iron pier in the sea beyond the breakers, where he could get  the n itural roll of the ocean waves  Under, this pier will be placed floats  Each float will bo as large as possible  jnit. will be small enough to rise on  top of the swells and sink into a  trough between them. The pier is to  be anchored to the bottom of the ocean  and remain stationary. The flouts  will be connected with piston cylinders, which"will pump air into a great  compressor. From this the' air will  pass into engines, which in turn will  run electric dynamos'. The current  will be taken ashore on insulated wires.  He thinks it will require a capital- of  about $25,000,000 to put the plan into  operation and produce power enough  to supply New York and the surround-  country.

R. the past week.  $3,000 is to be spent   making   navi-  ' gable the Lardo-Duncan river.  The creditors of Johnstone & Haines  are to meet at Saudiland's office at 4  o'clock to-day.  Slocan City commissioners have decided against toll roads, so we take it  they are no go.  James Wallace dropped dead the  other day in Kaslo while playing a  friendly game of cards,  The Lardo-Duncan people want $20,-  000 from Ottawa to improve the means  of access to that country.  The K. and S. train ,on Wednesday  did not arrive until late in the evening  on aceount of the heavy snow fall.  The Ledge says the Methodists of  New Denver dance. Perhsps some of  them were dancing when mad they rend  the paragraph.  The Kootenaian Will have it the Kas  lo girls are the sweetest, prettiest, etc.,  , etc.   The etceteras follow from  visits  to the comique, evi lently.  D. J. McDonald, late manager of the  Galena Farm, has pcen appointed provincial   inspector    of    metalliferous  mines.   The appointment is said to be  ;a good one.  Nelson defeated Kaslo at hockey at  Kaslo on Saturday, in a closely contested match. Kalso made 3 to 0 in  the first half and Nelson 4 to 0 in the  second half.  Considering the hour   at   which   it  started and the distance the corpse had  to be taken, to New Denver, the funer-  . al of Mrs.Lovatt on Thursday lust, was  very largely attended.  ��������� Senator Sanford, of Hamilton, Out.,  is spending $100,000 on a mansoleum  for the remains of his deceased son.  There is many a man in Canada that  could not spend that on a   living   son.  The E. L. Literay Society had a very  interesting session-last Monday evening, when a paper, written by the  members with Mr. Hall as editor, was  read. Of course the funny man was  there.  The other day a Manitoban was seen  on our streets with a coon skin coat,  and an iour or so after two of our most  expert . hunters, were in Cliffe's book  store hunting for books on "trapping  wild animals."  From the fact that last week's miscellaneous freights on incoming goods  were only ������18(3 against ������2,160 the corresponding week ot last year, one can  form some idea of the drop in commercial business.  British Columbia has a law dealing  with "the transportation of corpses or  'disinterred bodies,' " says a contemporary. How should a law dealing with  the transportation of "'interred bodies"  read, for instance.  The Kaslo News with a double big  headline says "Goodtimes for Kaslo,"  "New buildings costing ������13,000." Thirteen thousand spent in buildings  should create good times in a place the  size of New York, to say northing of  Kaslo.  J. G. Whittier denies through a Kaslo paper that he is going to the KlonT  dyke, as slated in the Review some  day's ago. He says the Klondyke  mine is good enough for him. We are  glad to hear it as the mine is a good  property, and only requires working to  pay any man well enough for his time.  They have a comical way of doing  things at Nelson. They appoint tho  mayor, city collector, and their chairman of'fiuance committee, treasurer.  Now the law of the province provides  that no member of a council can have  a contract with the. corporation. How  they get over the point of law is the  question.  We shall be very much susprised  if some of, those co-npanies sinking  their money in mines at Rossland do  not yet get their fill of ir, and then will  follow a general denunciation of the  country. Indiscriminate purchasing  always ends in a surfeit, and the present at Rossland will be mo objection  to the rule.  Mr. Kvdd, liquidator of the Noble  Five, has just returncJ from the coast,  but haa-nothing for publication as to  the affairs of the Noble Five. By putting things together, however, there is  ground for believing that the' Duns-  ��������� muirs. of Victoria, are paying off the  claims against the mine and taking it  over themselves.  The Review scribe has been favored  with a fine string of Bear Lake trout  by Mr. H. J. Macdonald, of the Miners'  Exchange. Mr. Macdonald keeps a  fine hotel, is an excellent host, and appears to be an equally successful fisherman. May rhe hand of Ike Walton  ii never grow weaker and the barbs of  his hook never grow shorter.  Sandon's juvenile hockeyists are  strictly in it and for cash. They authorize u������'to say they are ready to  meet any hockey club in the Kootenay  country whose members are under 14  years of age and fighting weight accordingly. In short they threaten to  challenge the seniors here under a for-  fiet of an . oyster supper.' They are  game tb the very core..  It is sajd that in the earlier days of  this province,a Chinaman "was found  dead near a rock with onebullet hole  in his head and another in . his.--heart,  and'a coroner's jury came to "the conclusion that John died by a visitation  of providence. Cowper, if we ^remember aright, wrote "God moves in a  mysterious way his wonders to perform," but we never before beard of  him moving as a musket ball.  D.Smith, who has been, the past  year with ' H. Tattrie, the milkman,  left for the north country on Monday  last.  Mr. F. J. Golden, something of an  old-timer here, left lor California on  Tuesday, to proceed thence to the  Klondyke later in the season.  M. L. Grimmett, W. Hood, Alf. Hall  and J. Mofiiitt, local curlers, are going  to Calgary to-morrow to pelt "stanes"  at the Calgaryites. They are bound  not only to win but to bring home  with them either the big brewery or  the largest cattle ranch on the plains,  and they'll do it.  Ttae new city council will open its  first meeting at onu o'clock today,  Probably beyond the appointment of  committees and the appointment of a  clerk and solictor but little business.  It will take the commiteps some time  to feel their feet and seo just what is to  be done and prepare reports .or next  meeting.  The Bunk of Halifax, N.S.,is opening  a branch at Nelson, and Mr. Geo.  Kydd, late of the B. N. A. Bank here, is  to be their manager. AJr. Kydd's  many frends here congratulate him  on his appointment. He is well experienced iu B. C. matters, and the new  institution is very fortunate in its  selection.  The C.P. R. has put on another  through Tourist car which will run between Portland. Maine, and Pacific  Coi'sr, This is in addition to service  now in force and gives daily service  to ST. paul. Through Tourist car to  Toronto from Revelstoke every Mon.;  Montreal to Boston every Thursday ;  Montreal to Portland every Friday.  It is not certain the Whitewater  mine has been sold. Here is what  Mr. Eaton the manager has to say  about it: "There is nothing new, nor  has there been for the past year. Mr.  Retallnck has held an option from me  during all that time, and if he sells al  right, and if he doesn't all right. I am  not bothering any about it one way or  the other."  E. E. Coy, of Kaslo, hho has been  part way to the Klondyke and returned  to Seattle tehs a pitiful take of his  tr<-atmont oiit there, lie fell sick, was  robbed by a comrade named Hunter,  and could not get tao American officials at Skay way where Harter was lo  prooeed with an arrest. Coy, however,  is wiser than when he set out for the  Klondyke.  Mr. Dockstader, p. in, of Cody, drove  into town with the mail Tuesday evening, and his horse, as an intelligent  animal would do, started for the rink  to see the hockey' match south vs.  north for the oyster snpper.
