A large and well represented meeting  to consider the advisability of incorporating was held in the Filbert Hotel  on Wednesday evening. Mr. M. L.  Grimmett was called to the chair, and  Mr. Hunter was chosen secretary. Mr.  Grimmett said the meeting was called  merely for the purpose of getting an  , expresson of opinion from the people  as to the advisability or inadvisability  of becoming incorporated, and not for  the considaratiori of any details ; those  could be dealt with at subsequent  meetings. The meeting whs now open  for the full discussion of the question.  Bir. Cliffe was called on and at some  length h <��������� gsue some of the benefits derived from incorporation, if economy  was the watchword of the people; also  some of the disadvantages if debenture  t debts wore encouraged.  Mr. Sondilands thought o^e important step'would be to get an estimate of  the likely revenue collections of the  place under incorporation, and an approximate estimate of expenditures as  a basis for considering the question.   ���������  Mr. A. D. Williams, as if forewarned  of what the people would require in  this "way, was ready with the estimate :  Revenues.  10 saloons @ 5-200 53,200  100 retail licenses @.       5 500  Commercial Travellers  Licenses  500  Wholesale Liquor  200  Breweries  100  Peddlers  50  8100,000 of Real Estate _  improvements @ SJmills  5,500  Extra Saloons   ' G00  Incidentals.

We were sending annually about S4.000 to Victoria and getting  litterally nothing in return. kelson  was dillcrently situated from Sandon,  for in that it was a Judicial seat, large  governmental expenditures were made  in the ordinary course of business.  Mr. J. R. Cameron would favor non-  paid Board of Aldermen, which of  course left i t open for the board to vote  sums,of money to the mayor or any  aldermen, who had .to lose much time  in the service of the city. The great  objection ' to incorporation was the  cost of salaries for often two men were  hired where but one was wanted. This,  however, was a matter fully within  the control of the people themselves in  that they could elect councillors who  reflected their own views.  Mr. Sheltbn, of Vancouver, advised  caution. Any place could bo run  more economic.'! llj without, the machinery of incorporation but rarely as  effectually or satisfactory to the people.  In all places where ho lived the fever  of speculation had run the towns too  heavily into debt but the experience of  these places should be of service to  Sandon ��������� ur.der incorporation.' The  people had-fsllcontrol over their own  finances.  Mr. Hammond saw that Sandon being circumscribed by boundaries more  than some places had not the same  chance for incurring debts on streets  and side walks. He believed incorporation would be a service. On motion of  Messrs. Williams and Hammond it  was resolved that a committee of five  bo named to take the preliminary  steps as to petition, etc., and report at  an adjourned meeting next Wednesday evening in.Spencer's Hall,  On motion again the following were  appointed to constitute the committee:  A. D. Williams (chairman), M.L. Grimmett P. L. Atherton, J. M. Harris and  "E. !tf. Sandilands after which the meeting adjourned.  I III OF CODY  The  Enterprising   Little Town to  the East.  A NEW INDUSTRY.  Total  $S,880  Our taxes at present under provincial assessments wero i of one percent,  or 5 milk on the dollar. As schools  were aided by government tinder  incorporation as well as without it,  education was not an element  in the consideration. He could not  see why his estimate of collections  would not cover all possible outlay  under incorporation, if the councils  were committed to a policy of economy. "   '     '  Mr. Grimmett said that if incorporation was decided on,to get it economically no time should be lost, for as the  law stood all preliminaries should be  .closed before the first at September.  '.The first stop was to get the names of  'property holders representing half the  ���������value of the real estate of the town on  a petition to the government, isking  for incorporation. Ts a question, he  said the title to realty might have  ���������some weight if the city was a large  borrower, but he could not see why it  should have much influence with the  Licut-Govemor-in-Council while the  people were simplv pressing for their  own choice of self government.  Mr. Traves,of Nelson, being.present  was asked to speak. If taxes could be  ���������"vfcep^njVJwn, incorporation, had advantages but the rule was they were increased. In Nelson,for instance,' every  alderman had relatives and every relative got a job. ' Mayor Hcwston had  unlimited power,he could spend 530,000  at "once if he thought proper.  Mr. Cliffe   thought   Nelson   was   at  least peculiarly blest.   Sandon  had no  Hewston's and the   entire ��������� population  -'.wis not one family   connection.     The  ;law     universally      was   no    council  .could incur a debenture debt without  -first getting the consent of the people,  :.and ho wise councillor would  support  cany   heavy   current   expenditure     to  ���������jrhich his constitutents were opposed.  Mr. Cunning was; opposed to   incorporation ; we were getting along nicely  now and very  well' ought  to be   left  alone.   He never  heard ��������� of  incorporation without increased taxation.  Mr. David saw a service in incorporation if it was only to relieve the place  of the nuisance of transient traders,  Even in his line the town was "fleeced  yearly���������deprived of money that ought  to be spent'here in the employment of  large sums for labor, and the people  were powerless to prevent it. In every  other line of business the same vvas  true to a greater or a lesser extent."  'A Large Brewery For Sandon.  Messrs. Drcyor.and Hoffmeior, two  good matured, solid Dutclimen,'_ns their  names would indicate, under the firm  style of the New York Brewing company, have erected a most'eommodious  brewing premises about three quarters  of a mile to the East of Sandon, and  have this week opened for business.  Their building proper is 40x60, two  and a half stories, with an engine house  of large proportions. They have several vats on the premises���������all giving a  capacity of from 30 to 35 barrels a day.  The premises complete will cost about  510,000, and will be one of the most  complete in the country. They will  import their malt by the car load at a  time and keep it in a bonded warehouse they are erecting for the purpose. The indications are ' they will  manufacture a very superior article,  which will render it unnecessary for  our hotel people tc buy anywhere  of town in the future.  out  AINSWORTH CAMP LIVELY.  \' X '  Notes About  Twin,   Higland  and Black  Diamond���������500 Miners at Work.  Martin Salmon, one of Rossland's  old-time prospectors and mine owners,  is in town from Ainsworth, where he  is in charge of the work on the Ellen  and Twin mines. " He says the latter is  developing very well, the tunnel having- a full face of good-grade, concentrating ore. A second tunnel is about  to be started to tap the ledge at a depth  of 500 feet.   It will bo 600 feet long.  Mr. Salmon says the Highland is so  far the big mine of the camp.   It has  four or five years' supply of ore blocked  out, and the owners are going ahead at  once   with the   erection   of   a    large  concentrator     and     tramway. ���������    One  peculiarity of this mine is that a large  body   of concentrating   ore,   showing  good gold values, has been found alongside the galena. ���������    ���������'' .  ��������� At the Black Diamond a force of GO  men is working,. and themine is shipping right along.    Besides the clean  pre, which is sacked and sent direct to  the smelter, an equal quantity of concentrating ore is sent to the Woodbury  concentrator.   About 500 miners are  at work in the camp,   and as a consequence the town   is very, lively, two  new   hotels   having  been erected  recently. ,        '���������;'..  About two yc-irs ago Mr. J. M. W inter erected his present commodious  hotel in this place which was the f.ivjt  frame erected here, and fiom this  small beginning has grown thestirrin;;  little town of Cody, which has now  three other good hotels���������The Noble  Five, Pacific, and the Central, all clean,  well kept cstablifahmenls to do credit  to any mining camp.  The town itself is nestled in surrounding hills very similar to the environments of S.-mdon, though with a  larger area of comparatively level land  for business and residential premises.  There is a union of two or three small  streams coursing through the place  offering ample opportunities for drainage and plentiful supply of the very  best of water in the side hills for fire  protection and all' domestic purposes.  In addition to the hotels, there are  the large store of Green Bros, handling  gencralsnpplies, and the grocery managed by A. P. Docksteader, who by the  way is also post master, the K. <fc S. R.  R. agent, secretary ,for a mining company and generally the busy man of  the town.  In minoi industries of the place are  a blacksmith shop, two laundries and  a'neat little barber shop kept by W.  Smallcy, who is but a new comer but  apparently a fixture.  The saw nrll managed by W. E. Tir-  rell is one of the larger industries of  the place. It is run to its'full capacity  15,000 feet a day, and h largely, devoted to the supply of all local requirements. The mill also supplies the  Star concentrator largely with fuel,  floating down its slabs by a long flume  that hugs the side hills to the south of  the river all the way in its downward  coursc.the work being superintended by  Goo. Bennett.  The leading industry of the place is,  of courso, the concentrator of the Noble  Five,' which is a large four story building supplied with all modern, appliances-;" but of this" institution 'we  will have more to say in a latter issue,  the result of reportpri.il inspection.  The people of the town are very  sanguine as to the future of the place,  for the best of reasons," they have a  reasonably good townsite with quite  the average natural advantages and  the wealth of the mineral surroundings  unsurpassed. At present there arc  perhaps 800 people in the town proper,  and perhaps as many more, in the  mines tributary. Our informant, who  is well posted on what is going on,  places the minors at present at work in  this order :  The Noble Five 90  The Lost chance 20  The Blue Bird 20  The Wisconsin 7  The Noonday 12  Freddy Lee .       10  Greenhorn 10  American Boy 10  We take the following list of mines  from the Winter's hotel card,as within  two miles of Sandon. Many of the  number are, however, from business  and geographical reasons tributary- to  Sandon, such as the Slocan Star, the  Reco, the Ruth, etc.  improving daily. Excellent 1; tmples  are now got, of which they have 75  tons ready for shipment.  As Messrs Copelan and Siurman  were taking their evening stroll the  other day when gray dusk was spreading its mantle around our circumscribed landscape, they came across a  natural curiosity, it will remain for  the sooth sayers of later days to explain. They saw an animal in the  distance, with fire flashing out of its  eyes in every direction, and was in  size of the dimensions of a double  headed pig. They might have though*-  of the great behemoth of holy writ,  but it has long since ceased to exist,  and even the remains" of the unicorn or  the zebra in these parts are unknown.  The gentlemen are not without plenty  of nerve to prosecute investigation on  their own account, but the night was  dark and snow slides imminent, so  they had to forego'lhispleasure. They  have, however, submitted the matter to  the wise men of the east, and their  conclusion is the animal was cither a  horned bear or one of Henry T ittric's  cows.  mm ill  Some of the Smaller Shippers  Payne-Reco Mountain Described.  on  . A Chapter of Accidents.  How true it has been in all ages that  man's inhumanity to man. makes  countless millions, even miners, mourn.  David Spotton and a man named McNeil, knew for some time there was a  good claim near Cody that was (o run  out by lapse of time at midnight one  day this week, and they both had their  eyes on "the root of all evil". beneath  the nagged surface. So they both laid  themselves out lanters in hand to be  on the spot on the rugged peak, at  midnight. By some means or other,  while at work at the staking about 3  o'clock in the morning, Spofcton's lantern gave out, and he fell a considerable  distance receiving some bad bruises  about the head and face. Dr. Powers  attended him, arid says he will bo  around in a few days. Spotton thinks  early birds always catch something,  but not always, worms.  Mr. Sargeant, who belongs to the  Payne mine, met with a painful accident this week. Mounting a horse  at Bartlott's stable his hand got caught  some way in the saddle, and the horse  jumped. The sudden wrench by some  means broke Mr. Sargeant's arm. The  wounded limb was set by Dr. Powers,  and Mr. Sargeant was enabled to,return  to his home in the states by train next  day.  J. H. McNeil met with a serious and  painful mishap at the Ruth mine on  Sunday. While working at the drill, a  piece of metal flew up and cut the ball  of his eye. Dr. Powers was called in  but found the ball was destroyed. The  sufferer will lose the sight of the eye,  but the Doctor made him as comfortable as possible, and he returned to his  home 111 Anaconda the same day.  Reco Mill and  Tramway  Will Be   Constructed Shortly.  ANOTHER SLOCAN SHIPPER.  The London Hill Goes on the List as a  Produce's.  Atrip to th large and small mines  situated on and near the celebrated  Reco-Payne mountain, is one not easily  made, but when accomplished cannot  .'ail to excite the admiration of the visitor.  It is not uncommon for visitors to  the Slocan country to tarry a few days  in the camps, thus not seeing that  which has made tin's country famous  betake ilicnisolvr s away vowing that,  the tales of the fabulous wealth of  these towering mountains are mere fiction. If they would but condescend to  quit tl e cover of their lodging house  for two or three days these so-called  'airy tiles would at once become to  them truth���������strong as Holy Writ.  Your correspondent has visited the  Mountain Chief, American Boy, An-  toine, Surprise, Slocan Boy, Robert E.  Lee,' Last Chance and a few saialler  mines within the past few clays, and at  all of them found scenes of busy,  bustling activity, which bid fair to redound with great benefit to the owners  of the diveis properties.  The Enterprise has within the last  week increreased its working force to  12 men and is prosecuting with vigor,  the development work, which will prepare it for shipping at the return, of  the raw-hiding season. It has a good  vein of 200-ounce ore, which is becoming richer ?vith deoth.  The Last Chance, owing to difficulty  in contending with the water in the  tunnel has decreased its force to four  men, where there are generally fifteen.  'The main tunnel is in 300 feet and  work is now being done on a crosscut,  which is alreadj .in to a depth of 500  fret. The ledge shows an 18 inch pay-  streak of 200 ounce ore. One thousand  tons have been shipped from this property during the past two years.  The Robert E. Lee, which has been  under a lease for two yearsj has lately  been taken charge of by the original  owners, the lease having expired without the conditions being fulfilled.  Pour mca arc now employed on this  mine, in development work.- It will  be a shipper this winter.  The continued rains have interfered  to such an extent with the workings of  the above named properties that work  ha3 virtually been suspended on most  of them. They are, however, all "in  splendid condition and will be worked  to their full capacity as soon as con  ditions will permit.  RECO COMPANY'S PI.AXS.

McAtee has received a report  from Foreman Salmon of the Twin at  Ainsworth to the effect that the breast  of the tunnel is all in ore and it is getting better every day. When Mr. McAtee left the property, two weeks ago,  the breast of the t/iimel showed about  two and a half feet of ore. This report  shows that the vein has increased to  five feet, that being, the width of the  tunnel.

Mr. Levi has leased Mr. Portman's  new hotel atGreentree, near the new  brewery, where, with the limited facilities at his disposal he is prepared to  do the best ho can for all guests.

There is a geod showing of ore in sight  and tho directors are counting on shipping a carload a week to start with.  The^property is looking first-rate and  the directors are naturally jubilant.  PLACER CLAIMS LOCATED.  Part of Grand   Forks  Townsite  Believed  To Contain Placer Mineral.  Grand Forks, July ���������6.���������Considerable  excitement has been set on foot by the  discovery of paying placer diggings  within the corporate limits of the citj'.  The discovery was made by S.S. Shulcr  and E. IT. Willette, who were procuring sand in the western part of the  city, near the main Kettle river, and  who panned a shovel of the aand out of  curiosity. It was found to run four or  five cents to the pan, so the discoverers  staked a couple of claims, which have  been increased to seven yesteday and  to-day. .  ' The bar upon which the locations are  .made is timbered with scrub pine, and  is flooded only at high water. The  river front has been staked a distance of  1,300, the claims running back to high  water mark, a distance ranging from  100 to 500 feet from the river. , On the  18-Carat group 100 feet of flume and  sluice boxes have been built and the  first clean up will be made Saturday  night. If all of the sand runs as well  in the precious metal as that panned  in prospecting, they claim the owners  will make good money with their flume.  The bar is only a few minutes I walk  from the business center.  Work on the Reco tramway has  practically been commcncetl. Two  surveys haye been made, and as soon  as J. M. Harris, the manager, returns  from his extended visit in the east, a  decision will be made and work commenced at once. The longer survey  and the one presumably favored, is  9,000 feet long, and the maximum  height above ground 250 feet. A concentrator will also be built. It will be  similar to tho Noble Five and fully as  largo.  Work on three leads on the old Reco,  which had been abandoned in order to  prosecute work on the Rcco-Good-  euough, has been commenced, and the  ore from these leads will furnish work  for the concentrator. The Reco-Good-  enough ore, which averages about 500  ���������ounces of silver, will not be concentrated. There are now 33 men employed at the mine and this force will  be inercascd at the completion of the  tram and concentrator to 250 men, 160  more than has ever been worked at the  property. These men will also work  the whole' year, instead of about four  months as formerly.  The Ruth is also contemplating a  tram, to be built this summer. As yet  the project is in its infancy, but assurances arc given that one will be built  and ready for use in a few months.���������  Rossland Miner!  mine, and a large owner thereof; Chas.  R. Hosmc-r, general manager of the  Canadian Pacific Telegraph company,  and P. A. Largey, president of the  Central Star Mining company.  The charter obtained by Sir Charles  Ross is a very broad oue and gives the  projectors of the enterprise the right  from the Pend d'Orille,' Kootenay, or  other tributaries of the Columbia  river. It was originally proposed to  construct the plant on the Pend  d'Orille river, near Waneta, but upon a  clese examination of all the pnysical  and economic conditions it was determined to go to the Kootenay river.  Sir Charles went to Scotland two  months ago and on his return to New-  York he immediately began tho completion ol his financial arrangements  for the great undertaking. He arr/ved  in Nelson last Saturday, bringing with  him his consulting engineer, Robert  Jameson, and meeting there Oliver  Durant and J. B. McArtl.ur, of Ross-  land. Martin King, of Rossland, was  also present, as he had been sent for  with a view to his taking charge of the  execution of the work at the middle  falls of the Kootenay river. It may  be said that all arrangements are no������v  practically completed for the beginning of work on the plant.  The primary purpose of the undertaking is to provide power for the  working of the Centre Star mine, in  weich Sir Cnarles Ross holds a considerable interest, but the scope has been  much bro.idcned, and it i3 now the  purpose of the company to establish a  plant which will generate electric  power to be used all over West Kootenay.  It is proposed to build a laage central compressor nt Rossland and let  power out to the mines at a much less  cost than it can now be produced. The  change will work as great a revolution  in this camp as the introduction of  Niagara electric.power is working in  the city of Buffalo, N. Y. The meaning Oi the change is apparent when it  is' stated that boiler plants will no  longer be necessary nor will a stick of  cordwood be needed, for the electric  current generated by the limitless  powers of the rushing Kootenay will  be applied directly to the machinery.  The putting in of this great   electric  plant will not be' at  first   understood.  It means a revolution in   the   expense  of mining in Rossland   and   elsewhere  within a radius of 15 miles of the city.  The power will beconyeyed over wires  radiating from the central plant in  all  directions.   It will have to travel about  35 miles to reach   Rossland,   a 'longer  distance than it is from Niagara to Buffalo.   The plawt will be   of   the   most  improved construction and will be one  of the finest of tlie kiwi in the  world.  It will commence operations  by  sending 3,000 horsepower to Rossland,   but  will be so constructed that  the power  can easily be in creased to 20,600 horse  power.   The middle falls of the Kootenay river can supply enough power  to  run every minc,smclter,lighting p.'ant,  street railway, printing press or   other  kind of machinery that   ever   will   be  within 50 miles of Rossland.  The commencement of w������rk on this  enterprize marks an epoch in the history of the Rossland camp,and of West  Kootenay. It is second in importance  only to the building of the Crow's Nest  railroad. At a later date we shall be  able to give a description of the machinery to be put into the plant and  tho method of transmitting the power.

Readers of the dailies have no  doubt noticed an advertisement calling  for bids on a large amount of rock excavation in the Kootenay river. The  purpose of this excavation is to provide a place for the great electric  power plant for which Sir Charles Ross  obtained a charter at Victoria.. The  company is known as the West Kootenay Light and Power eompanv  The incerporators were: Oliver  Durant,   manager   of the Centre Star  Geo. Lovatt has the timber right to  a blook of land on the south hill, and C.  L. Crawford built a house on what Mr.  Lovatt considers in   the   way   of   his  timber trail.

This he   considers   exorbitant,  and is going to appeal the   case   to   a  higher court.  The records of our police court show  how some men miss their opportunities. Charles Chambers was taken in  charge the other day as- a drunk and  disorderly. Tho next day ho was retaken, as being found in a still- worse  condition, and find. This is the same  man who located the Slocan Star mine  some six years ago, that is now worth  some millions of dollars. All Chambers had to do was to hang on to this  property and he would have been a  multi-millienaire to-ditv.;  ' :-rfl_.     ���������  Bismuth in Jumbo Ore.  Sulphide of bismuth has been found  in the Jumbo mine. This is one of the  rarer metals and. had not been met  with before in this camp. Its discovery was due to H. E. D; Merry, of the  Kamloops Mining and ' Development  company, to whom Mr. Galusha gave a  specimen of his telluride ore. The  bismuth occurs in this specimen in  massive form, and, although resembling sylvanite has a different crystal-  ization and is of steel grey color.  Condensed   for   Busy  People.  The Cliff mine near Rossland is sold  to English parties for $15,000.  The Payne people are putting on  more horses, to haul 45 tons a day.   ���������  Boundary Creek prospectors ask $80,-  000 to ������100,000 for undeveloped claims.  ' A. R. Heylaad, Cody, is surveying  the J. L. P, which is adjoining the  Freddv Lee.  R. A. Cameron and J. G. Williams  are taking out four men to open the  Yankee Kid at Whitewater.  Mr. Innes, of Vancouver, with his  engineer, Mr. Veech, are arranging to  put. a ten-stamp mill on the Feru,  which is now looking particularly fine.  They will also probably put in a surface tram.  J. D. Sword, of Rossland, has recently  made a tour of the Slocan country.  While here he sold five drill compressors to the Ruth, the Northern  Belle and the Rambler.  It is reported that,a big strike of pre  has been made on Fry Creek, eight  miles above Kaslo. It is said that  $175,000 was offered for the claim. The  find consists of copper and gray galena.  A rush has pcen made to the scene.  , A big strike was reported last week  on Tara O'Shanter creek in thd Ainsworth district, by John Nyman and  others. Nearly 2-1 inches of pur9 galena was uncovered for over 50 feet,  ha/ing welh defined walls.  It is expected that the Ti^ar No. 4  owned by Martin and Popham, and  the Mattiwa, owned by Collins and  Brandon, located on Ten Mile slope,  adjoining each other, will shortly be  bonded by Ottawa parties who have  examined them.  C. Barber came down from the Rain-  bew, 3i miles up Springer creek, last  night, bringing some fine specimens  of galena and sulphurets, the result of  two shots. The ledge is six inches "in  width and grows larger with depth, and  was located only three weeks by Mr.  Barber and H. A. Hicks.  .A Vancouver syndicate have expended about $12,000 in development  work on a group at Slocan including-  the Bond Holder, Thors, Fraction. Pine  Log, Lone Star, and Rosebud. They  abandoned work some time ago, and  after taking another squint at it are  going to resume operations.  Mr. Sword was at the Galena Farm  and says it is looking exceedingly well.  Things are -cry lively at, Slocan City,  real estate being active and new buildings abundant. He took a ride in the  new C. P. R. steamer Slocan, running  on Slocan lake, and says she is the  swiftest boat of the C. P. R. fleet.  The Bald Mountain Mining company  have given a bond on the property near  Donald to an English syndicate ' for  S12S,600, to be taken up by July 5th.  If the syndicate do not take up their  pond by that date the companw will  proceed with aetive development work.  Calgary men constitute the company  owning the well known property.  The Greenstone is the name of a new  location on Tiger creek, off the second  north fork of Lemon creek, just made  by J. F. Yates and John Fletcher. The  boys returned from the property on  Monday, and are showing their friends  some samples of free milling quartz  that have every appearance of being  rich. The location was made close to  the snow linei  D.J. McDougall, late foreman of the  Ruth mine at Sandon, and part owner,  and manager of the Lucliy George  group on Lemon creek, now has ten  men at work on the tunnel, which has  been driven 20 feet. It is said the  company is now figuring on putting in  a stamp null within the next .60 days.  Assays aresaid to average S40 to $60  in gold and $8 to $10 in silver.  E. J. Taylor and Wm. Kean of Sandon, and S.J. Curry, of Slocan : City,  have been doing development work on  the well-know Maple Leaf group, close \  to the Lemon Creek townsite. ��������� The^-  ledge was uncoveredjind found to average'from 7 to 40 feet in width. From  the several assays made an average  gave from 860 to 875 in gold and silver,  while picked specimens went as high  as $1,000.'  Mr. Sword, Byron White and others  who own tho Lone Star and Blue  Grouse, two claims embracing 100 acres  of ground, which is supposed to catch  the great Slocan; Star lead, are getting  ready to commence development work.  Mi-. White has expressed the opinion  that he can easily locate the Slocan  Star vein on the ground referred to,  consequently there is a bouyant feeling .  among the owners.  0 ���������>��������� ' : Yffi-jr  4:  ������/���������'  ;;;.#  THE MJMNG REVIEW.

It was not his constituency   that/elected   him   to,  the  speaker's,chair, r'it was   tlie   assembly,-  on the ground that 'ho'was  hoh-parti-  san.    The  assembly that  'made  him'  speaker kept the Davie government in  power and it endorses tlie Turner government as well/  with   which   he   declares . himself  at.  dagger's  ..length;.  In'his recent  utterances he  has  declared himself a partisan, while chosen  by  the Assembly,, for   the   speaker's  chair, on the ground   he was non-partisan.    He has,  therefore,   according  to'his own showing, broken faith with  the body that placed him in  his present position,  ..and-:   can   only   make  amends by! placing   the trust, reposed  in his   rion-partisanship -in   the hands  of those.who reposed it^���������the assembly  ���������in resignation.    No ;/. Mr. Higgiris,  you are, at perfect" liberty , to.raise   a  war of cloud and smoke with the government, yea,   even to defeat it if you  can; but before undertaking the   step  you should keep faith with the/Assembly, who   placed youwhere  you. are���������  in resignation. '  Hughes trail" As drainage in this  part of the coun try is the best possible,  at every step,,as stone and gravel are  at the roads, edje . every rod of the  length, of'both'roads to which we refer,  all that is required is the selection of  ��������� the best routes ;and a moderate, expenditure instraighteiiing,levelling and  grading. There: is one section of the  Cody road nea r the railway bridge  where it is impossible for any.team to  .../draw more than their own weight in a  lumber wagon, aiiid equally impossible  , for one team for^a. quarter of a'mile, to  pass another, asd all.this, in the face  of the large revenue the government  is drawing annually from the pockets  of the people. This' all convinces us  that the requirements of the country,  have never been placed properly before  the.government, by our.represen-  / tative. One parly told .the writer the  other day this w^ts. because the sitting  member was an oppositionist. If this  is so, all we have-to say is so much the  more discreditable is it for both opposition and. government.  We   can  well understand that if a  ���������simple favor is to be given to one of  two constituenctes, as politics and  governments   go>,   that   which   sends  v a government supporter is likely  to get it;' but when it comes to a  naked act of hall'justice and fair play,  the government tliat refuses it to either  a supporter or an opposition member,  deserves unmeasUxable . censure. We  cannot believe -lliat, in this case, the  government.is as much to blanie as  some people alkge they are. It appears to us the vliole matter centres  upon the inattention of our local representative,- on tie grounds that his  personal interests call for his efforts in  other directions. ������������������ This being the case,  as it undoubtedly is, a redistribution  before another election is .imperative  that this part of the ; country should  select a representative who will have  some measure of concern for our crying necessities.  In a. new selection,the people should  not choose a representative who will  oppose anything for opposition's sake  ���������he should be ������ man who  will sup-  ' port the right���������im fact insist on justice  being done his constituency at least in  Tlie Kootenaian  is  advancing reasons  to prove , that Kaslo, is going to  be the   city   of the'   Slocan country;  Noconercan find fault  with any local  paper for doing   the best it can for its  surroundings���������this is its proper sphere,,  'but the future,of this country is yet  to  be determined,   even  to a-sage, much  more a journalist.    Kaslo may have a  fine .agricultural country to tlie east  if  discovered, a beautifullake abounding  in catfish and bull-heads   to-wards the  rising sun,   and   the Ibex mine   in   its  immediate   neighborhood,   but though,  these   things may  create   an   ancient  Babylon, they will .never drag a modern  Chicago   on the scene.    This country  must;be"  determined   by  its   mineral  wealth, and those points that have the.  largest  pay  roll   are certain   to   lead  when theother conditions of growth such  as commercial surroundings and local  industries naturally follow.    Kaslo is,  relatively speaking, an  old  placed���������in  fact it was born before the flood, and  may experience a second  and a third  deluge. , We  hope, however,   it-will  not ; and-through   the existence of the  Kootenanian it  may have   the necessary, just persons  to save it,   which we  trust it  has.    For its   age,   however,  comparatively sperking it has not made  the progress other places  have, 'notably Sandon.    As far  as discovery has  gone Sandon has the silvery surroundings par excellence,   and the   indications are they will be, so increased  in  the  near future as  to centre the business  here,   and  make this   the .great  commercial  metropolis of this part of  the country.  Since the circulation of our last issue, we find a great many people favorably impressed with the idea of a  Local Fire Insurance Co. In fact we  heard a prominent director of a stock  oompany say it was one of the best  things the people could do���������secure  such an institution. Business men  who owe some debts feel a great insecurity in running the risks they do, and  even others who owe nothing feel that  without some insurance they are not  running business on, a proper basis.  Even if an insurance could be got in  a stock company, the rate asked is almost prohibitory. It is quite safe to  say that if a local co'y were organized,  that selected its risks and covered no  niore than 25 per cent, of the value of  the properties selected, ��������� which would  leave the insured as careful as if they  had no protection at all, a rate of  from 2 to 3 per cent, would cover all  losses and leave an accumulation besides. The business might be run on" a  double basis, a moderate rate charged  in all cases, and a special levy additional whenever a loss occurred. This  would leave an accumulation that  might be in a country like this invested to great advantage, as premium  or dividend paying later on, as the directors might consider most advantageous later on,  How   "Wheelmen���������'.

Camping .parties . for bicycle dubs  will probably be "among- tho chief attractions on .the program of those.  sprightly organizations during the coming Summer. Taking into consideration the many joys''and benelits o-f  c-amp life, it seems a. wonder they di<3  no I.' take it up. long ago, especially as  there'are so many delightful camping  locations so easily .available from the  city./ .   ,,  ' Life, iri the; wcrocls and under the canvas, though,! seems to have found but  small favor with the wheelmen of Canada. In Ireland and in some parts of  England .the bicycle camp is a fixture  on the annual program of the bicycle  club. There it ;is one of tho strongest attractions in. the way of securing'  new memibers and entertaining those  already in.. There seems to be no  doubt that summer .vacations could be  pleasantly spent'by members of cycling clubs in this country in the same  way, especially with the excellent opportunities at hand. Such a venture  would now meet with success. In the  early days of the sport bicycles and  bicycling' then "were by-no means what  they are . at present.,-/ While then it  took a hard day's riding to get to an  available camping ground on th~e old  'ordinary" machines of the day, it is  jiow but a matter of a few hours of  pleasant riding  over delightful  roads-'  -tinny, buitublo Carnitine SiteH.  Ot course, the first consideration in  establishing a camp 'is tho acquirement  of a suitable 'site.,1 T^i-at is not a difficult matter almost'.anywhere in Canada. There are many .beautiful lakes  within easy access. In tho Jake re-  giona, for instance, there are hundreds  ..of pnetty sites for'camps. They are all  preUy and thoroughly desirable places,  especially for cyclists to camp, because they are easy to reach from the  towns and cities, just the right distance for  a good, hard  spin.  The.bicycle camp,idea,' to be carried  through an entire summer, would in  most cases,have'-to be carried out by  an entire club. With proper arrangements different details of the club's  membership could spend a couple of  weeks, or whatever-the "period o-f their  vacation, at the camp and Lheu return  to .the city to give another detail a  chance. Members' could also run out  to stay, from Saturday to Monday and  'carry with them small delicacies from  town, for' which campers and inhabitants of the woods are always craving.  In, that way young fellows who are  fond/of knocking, about on rivers and  lakes, roaming -the,; woods and other-  ���������wise communing with nature, could  spend a, comfortable and thoroughly  enjoyable, summer  vacation.  In most.cases it is easy to secure permission to .camp from the owners of  land, that affords desirable camiping  sites, unless campers happen to have  .been there before. In'.that case there  may be a difference; but even then the  payment of a reasonable sum and the  strict promise of mild behavior will  usually win the farmer over.  .:'"U.OW to Swltict U10 Kite.  In selecting a camping 'ground there  are several things'to remember. Seclusion is a matter of first importance. A  well-wooded spot is desirable, both tor  the .seclusion and the protection. Care  should be taken to have the ground  sandy, and Oiigh and dry, in case the  camp is pitched, near a lake or river.  Consideration for health and comfort,  of course, demands that a good drinking water: supply be located not far  away." That is an item that cannot  safely he disregarded.     -'���������  For the better entertainment of the  campers it is well to locate near.a lake  or river that furnishes good boating  and fishing*. There are times in the  cyclist's life when .he is willing to forego the joys of his wheel and spend  part of his time in a boat with taokle  and rod.  "The selection: of tents is a matter of  much importance, of course," says an  experienced camper, "inasmuch as they  are the only roofs and floors that are  to be between the campers and heaven and earth. For parties of moderate  size the square or 'gypsy' pattern with  walls a'couple of feet high, are said  to be most desirable. If the permanence of the ;'carop be assured the tent  may he floored, in sections of deal  ���������boards slightly raised from, the ground  by transverse battens. A" carpeting of  cocoanut fiber m.atting over this flooring will render this, tenit as snug as a  bedroom.. If the tent toe floored an  extra four feet section laid outside will  not only serve as a doorstep, but, raised on a pair of trestles, will form an  excellent al fresco dining table.  To SUeifcr From Heavy Knins-  "Over the tent should be spread a  fly or awning, not only to act as an  extra protection against heavy raifl,  but to" serve to shelter ���������' machines and  camp larders, which may be ranged  under its protecting eaves along the  "sides of the tent. For the larders well  made packing cases, turned on their  sides and fitted with padlocks and  hinges, will serve admirably. In the"  most weather-tight of these, for preference a tin-lined case, should bestowed groceries and other perishable commodities, while the others will afford  safe shelter to the utensils and belongings of the campers during their  absence from their canvas home. If  possible a shallow trench to load awav  rainwater should be dug under Uxa  eaves of the awning/   "'/ -  "The'cooking utensils should comprise a: spirit stove, a large kettle fitted with a lid like that of a saucepan,  so that it may" be used both as a  saucepan and a kettle; a frying pan, a  small block tin saucepan and a few  enameled iron dishes and jugs.. Besides these a good supply: of caps,,  saucers, glasses, knives, ��������� forks and  spoons!, with a small cruet, a teapot  and a nest of earthenware basins  should be laid in stock. A small "hat-,  chet, knife-board,.a looking glass, with  a large tin washing bowl and water  can, together with a petroleum bur- .  ricane lamp and a couple of galvanized iron pails for scullery work complete the list of domestic utensils,  "The beds should be made of stout  canvas, or ticking," -and provided with  a small pillow case. These should be  stuffed with hay on their arrival in the  camp, and at favorable opportunities  should be aired in' the sun. From pole  to pole of the tent should .be stretched.  a strong.cord, whereon-to hang articles  of clothing, and the poles may furthermore be garnished with the ever welcome hat peg and pendant box ot  safety matches. The cooking place ot  piled bricks should stand at some'distance, from the tent, and will be found  a useful helpmate to the more pretentious spirit stove. A few deck  chairs and half a score of Chinese  lanterns complete our bill of costs for  the establishment of a camp capable  i>f accommodating eight persons, which  may be started .within very modest  limits,   indeed.  A General   Wave   of   Mining   Development   and   Speculation.  The eicncrnl manager of the  Canadian Bank of Commerce, in   the  course  of his rema.lv-B at the  annual   meeting  of that institution���������which concern,  by  the way continues to make   gratifying  yearly progress���������m referring   to   the  mining  industry  throughout   Canada  had this to say concerning British Columbia :   "Our interest in British Columbia is as yet indirect, the bank having no establishments  in   the   Pacific  Province, and   having   regard   to   the  great wave of.mining development and  mining speculation which   is   passing  over the  country   literally   from   the  Atlantic to the Pacific, we   are   naturally more interested in  our   own   Province,    than elsewhere.   That there is  gold in many parts of Canada,   including  several   districts   in   Ontario,   is  established beyond doubt.   That much  of it may be mined at a profit  we believe to be quite -true.     Let  us  not,  however, place   our   expectations   unreasonably high.   It is well to remember that if mining pays fair   watrcs   to  those engaged in it, and a fair dividend  on the capital employed, that is all wo  have the right to expect.     The   world  is full of men looking   for  only   fair-  wages, and of capital socking   only   a  fair dividend.  'It is   also   well   to   remember that mining   is   a   business  requiring large capital, and apt to   absorb the" first'earnings as a  further investment   of  capital   before    settling  down to the payment of  steady   dividends.   It also requires, like any other  manufacturing venture, absolute knowledge of the business in all its   details,  if success is to be confidently relied on.  But, like other   manufacturing   ventures, if skill and cajiital  are properly  applied, the result will, in  the   majority of oases, justify the  venture.     We  hope, however, it  will   not   be   taken  amiss if we compare this kind of mining with much   that   is  going   on   in  Canada at present.   Many of the  ventures offered to tlie public do not seem  to be backed up by skilled Mien in the  particular business of mining and adequate capital, and   in   such   ventures  hundreds of people arc   risking' sums,  not large in themselves,   rjerhaps,   but  of great   consequence   to   the   owners  who, in the majority of cases, we   fear  must lose.   f\To one   really   interested  in   the   great   future   which   'mining  doubtless has in Canada will, we think,  dispute.the wisdom of such a  note   of  warning at the present lime."

As, this gcni.le-  irian has a large and/ 'influential conT  ncction among investors, for whom he  has made much money in other j)ar(,s  ���������of the world, his British Columbia tirp  should result in benefits both to him-  saelf and the province.  eyes fixed on me questionln^ly; but no  words; crossed our lips.  Sir Rudolph seemed . devotedly "attached to his brother; the , love that  should have been'lavished on,his wife  was given "to: him. It was delightful  to see them tog-ether; he was so "amiable, ,so attentive, T.Tiric, so bright and  (findly. But Lady Culmore was sorely  pained. I did not remember, ever- to.  have seen her look so unhappy. Ulric  made no ehang-e in his treatment of  her. He was kind, attentive and affectionate to her. Either he knew her  secret and thought nothing of it, or  did not know and retained his old affectionate respect for her,.  Mr. Culmore came to breakfast with  us the. next morning, and was startled  at not finding his brother there.  "Where Is Rudolph?" he asked.  "He seldom takes, breakfast with us,"  replied Lady Culmore, her face flushing  painfully: And Ulric, seeing it, said  no more.  So the days passed, and, though Ul-  rlc|s presence seemed to have brought  light and sunshine, it wrought no  jchange in the unhappy relationship  which existed between husband and  wife. He njeyer alluded to it; he seemed gradually to fall into our strange  ways. He was kind and.loving to both,  ignored the estrangement as much as  possible, took the part of neither, arid  behaved as well as any man could possibly have behaved in the circum*  stances.  After a few dajrs Lady Culmore recovered herself, finding that her brother-in-law merely wondered and looked  rmzzled. '.'���������'���������'".  How am I to tell what next happened!

On Christmas Eve, leaning over the stile that  led into the snow-clad meadows, looking up to the night sky where the stars  shone,'!l had prayed heaven as a Christmas gift to send me some one to love  me; and with the budding of the green  leaves, with the singing of birds and  the sunshine of May, my prayer was  granted,  I seemed to be standing outside the  gates. of some wonderful land, when  suddenly they opened, and the golden  light fell upon me, blinding and dazzling me.

Cunning is   the local   agent  /for the Schlitz Brewing Co. of Milwaukee, .and from   the way. he is rolling  barrels around,   he must be doing  a  large business with the towns around.

About the only thing  v they have to do to ensure a grand time,  is to see the weather prophet.  Mr. McEchern, who works for Mr.  Lovatt, had a rib broken the other, day  in a singular way. He was ..holding a  team when they jumped, the wageron  tongue to striking him in the side. He  is going around.however, and will soon  be allright again.  Like all, other things, sublunary  .electric light plants have sometimes  to undergo repairs.

The Kootenaian says . the Queen is  going to abdicate the throne in favor  of the ''Princess" of Wales. . Some  journals are well up in British law.  The fact is the Prince of Wales is the  Queen's legal successor, and she has no  voice in changing it.  , There is great trouble at Grand Forks,  B. C. overclaim jumping. The lat"  provincial law provides that companies  ' should pay a license fee of $100 before  the 1st July.

THE FARMER AND THE HARE.  An exchange, and it is ri{;ht, has the  following: "Thos. Dunn returned on  .Friday from a business trip to Kootenay. ' He states that business is  again looking brisk, particularly so  about Sndon, where a large >um of  money is put into circulation by the  heavy monthly pay rolls of the mines  in that .vicinity. ��������� ��������� '���������  " A hypnotist and electric magician  .���������was in the city the first of this week,  and towk away a few dimes. He lvyp-  notized one man on Tuesday, and left  him for six hours stored away in the  -front window of Hunter Bros, store  apparently as lifeless as an Egyptian  mummy. He also made some clever  bits in mind reading on Tuesday evening. .  A Story. Good   Enough   to   Toll tho Cliil-  tlrt-ii.  A farmer of Montgomery, in the X>e-  parttment of Seine et Oise, Prance, has  just had the misfortune to be robbed  of no less a sum than 703 francs ($150)  by a ihare. Though this sounds s'.'ine-  what like a fairy tale, it is nevertheless a fact, and occurred in the following manne>r: The iu-mei, who had been  to the neighboring town and sold a  horse for the a.bovo-named sum, was  on his way, home when, in passing  through a vineyard, he sa.w a fine hare  which had. been caught in a tra.p���������evidently the work of some poachers. He  at once took the hare from the trap,  ���������with the intention ot making a meal  of htm. But, though he had caught his  hare, he was far from cooking him.  The poor animal made frantic efforts  to get free, -jo the farmer drew out hia  pocket-handkerchief to tie itu:p. lie  had just succeeded in .fastening one  leg when - the hare made a last bold  bid for liberty, and managed to slip  from his captor's grasp. In a trice ho  was off like the wind, bearing the  hand'kerch-ief with htm, and the farmer  was left lamenting, for in a corner of  that handkerchief he, after the fashion  of country folk, had tied the notes for  thirty pounds which he had received  for his horse. Before he had recovered from his surprise the hare 'was of  course over the hills and far away,  leaving never a trace behind.  But, somehow, it wasn't easy to offer  assistance to one who seemed to be so  equal unto himself. Every night aa  this man thought the matter over - he  asked himself in a sort of de.-pair :  "What should I have done, anyway."  One day a letter, came to him bearing a Dakota postmark. And it told  in broken language that the Other One  had "started agin," that he was trying  to live "inside and out" like the one  to whom he was writing. A wYetcrred  little postscript added that the dollar  was sewed into his jacket, and tliat h������  "wasn't never goin' to part with it."  And as the man read his eyes grew  dim.  "I don't understand It," he said. , "If  I had lectured him or even told him  his duty or really helped him���������"but I  didn't. I didn't do the right thinr. It  was ridiculous to hand out a dollar In  that way. And I didn't say the right  thing.      I can't undtrsl-aiid it."  ' SLT'J   -^BrtCE'*'J'JWJSa^."-������U!5*,l|UU������'������'   ���������-.'-���������^  Col. S. W. Kay, who represents considerable capital in Winnipeg, and is  interested in Kaslo and Rossland, arrived in the city last rSunday. "While  here he visited s"vcral mines on Lemon  creek in which he s interested, among  them the Gold blow, Gold Rock and  Gold Bank.' He stated that he would  put. a crew at work there as soon as  the trail is complet"d up Lemon creek  so that he can take in supplies. The  colonel is quite enthusiastic over the  prrspects of the upper Lemon Gold  belt.  ' >  D. M. McMillan,  Real Estate,    Mixing Broker,  Brandon, Manitoba.
