 /.--  "77  y/m  /  VOL. 2.    NO. 1  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE ]], 1898.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  The Following Report, as Issued by Mr.  ' Buchanan, President of the Kaslo  Board of Trade.  To the Mkmueus of the Boards ov  TitADB ok Kaslo, Rossland, IIevj-x-  STOKE. AND 0V THE ' MUNICIPAL COUNCILS op the Cities ov Kaslo and  Sandon :  Gentlemen:���������In compliance with  various commissions received from the  honorable bodies which you represent,  I proceeded to Ottawa in the early part  of April and remained there twenty-six  days���������my stay, howevor, being prolonged on account of the legislation  ad'ecting injuriously the interests of  of the Kaelo & Slocan railway, which  legislation I was instructed by the  Board of Trade of Kaslo to oppose.  The object, of my mission was to secure action of the Dominion government such as would promote the smelting of silver-lead ores in Canada.  ��������� During the latter pii't of my stay at,  the capital I had the co-operation of  Messrs. Houstan and Gibson.represent-  ing tho city council und Board of  Trade of Nelson, and we were efficiently assisted hy Messrs.Bostoek, Morrison, Mixwell and Earlc-. of the House  of Commons, by Mr. Templeton; of the  senate and oy tho Hon. Minister of the  Interior, Mr. Sifton.  The particular requests urged by us  upon the adminetration were :  First���������The development, of a home  market for lead by the imposition of  substantial import duties upon lead  products ccming into Canada from  abroad.  Second���������Enquiry, at the expense of  the government, for a foreign market.  Third���������A settlement by the government of the claims that have-arisen  under"an act to encourage silver smelting," 58-59 Vic, a readjustment of its  provisions, and its extension for a further term.  Fourth���������That the department of customs should use its influence with the  Treasury Department of the United  States with a view to having the ruling  under which duty is collected upon  tlie lead contents of ore as shown by  assay, altered in suc'-i a way that the  duty should be collected upon f.hn net  lead contents as shown by the smelter  returns instead.  Fifth���������That the free importation of  load ores of preferably lead bullion,into  the United States should be kept in  view in any treaty for reciprocal trade  with that country.  Upon these various requests we got  ultimately the lollowing decisions :  First���������That our application for tariff  changes came too late forconsideralion  at this session of parliament.  The Finance Minster had already  announced that he would make no  changes. He turned away numerous  'deputations,-including that of the  lumbermen which was very urgent and  influential. Mr. Braden of the Pilot,  Bay Smelter accompanied by several  members of Parliament had seen him,  (Mr. Fielding) in the early part of the  session and had received 'the same  answer, y  i No tariff changes would under any:  circumstances be promised in advance.  But during the autumn when tariff  legislation for next session was under  consideration, the Finance Minister  would be prepared to . hear all. that  those interested in lead wished to say.  Second^���������As to a foreign market, a  special commissioner (Mr. Anderson)  had just returned from Asia. tie had  made no enquiries as to lead, it not'  having.been hitherto brought to \the  notice of the Department of Trade and  .Commerce. . Mr. Anderson's report  was printed and laid before Parliament  while we were in Ottawa.  The results of this mission had been  meagre, and the Department of Trade  and Commerce would not. ask Parlia-  . ment at this session for an appropriation to defray the cost of sending another eommbsioner. The Department  would, however, enquire.through its  consular agents abroad as to the facts  in regard to the trade in lead.  Third���������The act for the encouragement of smelting by tlie payment of a  bounty of .t>30,000 per annum is in  force from the first day July, 1895, until the first day of July, 1900. The  smelters at Pilot Bay, Nelsohand Trail  lire entitled to participate ; no money  has been paid under it, no return as  provided for by the aet has ever been  made to Parliament as to its operation,  no appropriaton has ever been made  by Parliament or asked for by the.  ministry for the purpose of paying it.  1 understand that the matter will be  .made the subject of parliamentary enquiry during the present session. The  policy of. the Government as to the  Continuance or otherwise of the bounty  >>ill be announced at the next session  of Parliament.  Fourth���������The minister of customs  wan of the opinion that parties having  dealings with tlie United States customs would have, more influence with  them in securing the change of regulations, which could be shown to be  unjust, than he would have, but if furnished with full information he would  look into the matter.  Fifth���������In regard to reciprocity ;  should developments bring a practical  scheme of reciprocal trade with the  United States within reach, it is in accordance with the policy of our government to secure its ratification. The  ministers moreimm'-diatcly concerned  were impressed with the importance of  the lead mining industry to that extent that it will not be forgotten in the  preliminary stage of any negotiations  that may be entered into. But we  must depend mostly upon our own  vigilance to insure a final settlement  of the details in a satisfactory manner.  T reserve for the public press some observations as to the special difficulties  under which we latior at Ottawa.  But I desire to press upon the representative bodies whom I have the honor  of addressing that special legislation of  any kind will be secured from the Dominion parliament only by special  effort. The concessions sought by us  might have been secured this year had  t c agitation in favor of them begun a  year sooner. They may be attained at  the next session of parliament but if  they do, it will be because we continue ourefforts 10 bring them about.  f have the honor to be, gentlemen,  G. 0. BUCHANAN,  President of Kaslo Board of Trade.  11-MIOiI EXTENSION  It Is 100 Miles in Length and Will  Cost Three Million.  CAPT. MOORE DEAD.  Apoplexy  Took    Him  Spokane.  Suddenly     at  Capt N. D. Moore,known from Lake  Superior to the Pacific as a mining  operator of varied fortune, lies dead at  Spokane, after fifty-three years of most  active life. A few years ago Capt.  Moore was known in the iron region  of Michigan as the "Iron King." He  was rated at, several millions, lived  a prince ai d operated like a Bnrnato.  Fortune took a turn, however, and the  early nineties found the Captain in the  Slocan, comparatively broke, yet operating with the Yawkevs and E. A.  Humphries. He was for a time  manager of the Idaho mines, but he  leiVhcre a couple of years ago, since  which time he has .been associated  with J. D. Farrell. He is said to have  owned some good properties in Florence camp, and' leaves his wife and  three children in comfortable circumstances.  Capt. Moore was a character and  many-were his friends. Ho never gave  up his old tastes, though lie indulged  them less frequently perhaps. His  death removes a brilliant and fearless  operator and a good man.  Word has been received here to the  effect that the contract for th- e<instruction of the Robson-Midw.iv railway had been let to Mann. Larsen Sc  Foley. Tlie first named is D. D. Mann,  of the well known contracting lirni of  Mann & McKenzie. He was also one  of the owners of the V., V. it F.. railway  charter. The second ih Peter Larson,  of the firm of Larsen & Connelly, one  of the biggest railway- contracting  firms in thp west. Mr. Foley, the  third member of the firm, was a partner in the Foley Bros. A Guthrie syndicate, which built the Kaslo and Slocan railway.  The construction of this section of  road will cost $3,000,000. It will be  about 100 miles in length and is built  over a section in which (he physical  obstacles to be encountered (tie verv  great. The contraction of that portion of the line, from Kobson to Christina lake, will require engineering  skill of a high order. MeCrae Pass,  which is 13 miles in length, is even  mojc difiieult than the C. I'. R. pa.-,s in  the Rocky Mountains. ' There will be  a,number of tunnels and numerous  bridges and every mile will represent  a vast outlay.  That portion of the Columbia <fc  Western from Trail to KoIimiii, is already completed, anc the lino will be  continued from Robson along the Columbia river to Dog creek. Tlie route  from there on is up Dog creek to MeCrae creek pass, thence down MeCrae  creek to Christina lake to Cascade  City; along the Kettle river lo Grand  Forks ; up the north fork and Brown's  creek to Eholt pass; down Fholt creek  to Boundary creek, and through Greenwood, Anaconda and Boundary Falls  to Midway.  It is the intention to crowd the construction of this section of tho road  with all possible speed, so that it may  be finished before the end of the present year. The 0. P. R. in order to obtain the necessary concessions from  the government and to prevent the  construction of rival lines into the  Boundary country, made certain promises to lAicgovernment", wiilcli It, Is now  diligently endeavoring to fulfil.���������Rossland Miner.  in Rossland has been one continuous  liiumph is about to return to Sandon.  Mr. Mackenzie i.������. pronounced by press  and public to be the peer of the great  Kemii-dy. He has sung >\r baritone  with the great, Madame Melba. lie  will be associated with Mi.is Glover,  New Z'-ahmd's talented Shakespearian  and Scotch artist, and Miss Del man, a  first-clas vocalist and pianist from the  United States, whu lias had ihe distinction oi assisting Madame Albani  in her tours.  This unique entertainment being  Mr. Mackenzie's farewell appearance  in Sandon will be given on Monday  evening, June 13th, in Spencer's hall,  under the auspices of the Ladies' Aid  ������f the Presbyterian and Methodist  churches. The charge for admission  to this magnificent tr<\at, of humor,  song and comedy will be a uniform  one of 50 cents.  1 ISllil .son.  A Large Turn Out Greeted the Ladies'  Aid Monday Evening.  Green the Choice Of the Convention.  ���������affiv  Quite Right.  A correspondent hi  England has the  following letter in a London paper:  Permit me to observe that the home  investor does not seem to be aware of  the potentialities of the silver mines in  British Columbia. Next to Klondyke,  tho Rossland district only has attracted  attention, and the English companies  promoted, with one or two prominent  exceptions, have confined their opera-  lions to the reputed gold camps. It  may be heresy to talk hopefully of silver, vet I believe that the .richest properties in the province are in the Slocan,  where a.friend writes ine the proportion  of profitable .properties is fifteen or  twenty to one in Rossland. The Galena  fiasco may have prejudiced the public  here, but years back American prospectors recognised the value of quartz  mining and the immense silver-lead deposits, and where the British'mining  speculator or promoter now fears to  tread our Yankee cousin i������ enjoying a  'real good thing. Compare a gold mine  yielding, say, $80 to the ton, or ,������G, with  a galena proposition regularly returning  from GO oz. to 100 oz. of silver and up to  50 and 00 per cent, of good lead, besides copper possibly. Is that a contemptible average whore the cost of  working is relatively small ? With bar  silver below 2s. per ess. standard, surely  there is 'more money in one ton of silver-  lead ore than in four tons of low grade  gold-bearing stuff ; and I know of many  reliable men who on that account prefer  the Slocan to Trail Creek."  Canada's Progress.  Last year the Yukon country yielded  ������3,000,000 worth will- be : taken out.  There, is, Mr. Ogilvie says, at least  ^100,000,000 to come. Four years ago  the.Manitoba.-wheat crop, which is  better'than gold, was .17,000,000  .bushels. This year it will be 50,000,000  bushels. The northwast is progressing  in like proportion. Two years ago the  great coal and mineral territory along  the Crow's Nest railway could not be  got at. This year, by October ucxc.the  line will be completed to Yootenay  lake, and'a vast increase in development and in trade,.'. w.'ll.. take place.  Three.years .ago there were men in  'Caniida,:shrewd fellows they throught  themselves to be', who had little ft.ith  in the future of the Canadian Pacific  railway. To-day a 'proposition is on  foot to vastly increase the efficiency of  theline by needed -works' at various  points, as to enable the C. P. R. trains  to make the journey from Montreal to  Vancouver in 100 hours. This is a  rapid age, and Canada means to keep  up with the procession. ,  .FOR OVHIl FIFxY YKAU  Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup has been  used by millions of mothers for thoir children  while teething.

Now York, June 0.���������The Journal  prints the following under Cape Hay-  tien date declaring it- went over the  cable from Santiago to Europe to-day.  "This morning there was heavy cannonading which lasted from 8 to 4  o'clock. One armed American trans-  Atlantic steamer tried to run over the  first line of torpedo defenses. The  Spaniards let her do so, but when the  American ship, which had already got  into the pass,attempted to run over the  second line of torpedoes the Spaniards  set fire, to one of these, and the American ship sank immediately. An officer, an engineer and six soame have  been made prisoners. The name of  the. American ship is unknown as well  as the number of victims who have  perished."  Wm. McKenzie Coming Again.  As at all such gatherings there were  some circumstances wise and some  otherwise surrounding the convention  of Independents on Thursday evening;  but as Mr. Green, of Kaslo, was made  the unamous choice, tho best thing  now is for nil electors who desire to  see an improvement in the administration ol our affairs turn m and help to  elect, him.  There was a very full representation  of delegates present and Mr. Grimmctt  was chosen chairman and Mr.Matlieson,  of Silverton. secretary. Mr. Wm. Hunter was proposed, but he withdrew in  favor of Mr. Green, when the choice  was made unanimous. Mr. Green like  many another man who enters public  life and became successful lays no  claim to any special fitness for it; but  he has had an experience that will  stand in good stead. He does not profess to be any great speaker; but in a  representative this is a matter of secondary importance. In our Provincial  Plouse there are but few orators ; and  as most of the business is done in committee where business knowledge tells  every time, Mr. Green will be found  fully equal to all requirements. An-  nocucr tiling tliat, siaiuis HIm in goorl  stead is that he will always be "Dob"  Green as the boys call him, and approachable on business and public  matters under all circumstances. Election to the House will never carry him  beyond the reach of the public.  We simply trust now that the campaign is opened, there will be, a complete refrain from all personal allusions, there certainly will be none far as  Mr. Green and the Review are concerned, and strict attention given to  public matters���������'the'only issues before  the people'.' Mr. Green, if elected, as  we are confident he will be, will make  an earnest .effort.to reform the. abuses  of the govervment, which he will refer  to at his public meetings, and which  will be specially dealt with during the  campaign, in these columns.  In the course of a day or two he will  announce m scries of public meetings  in the constituency, which will be addressed by himself and others and, at  which his views on all public matters  will be fully explained. In the meantime committees should organizein all  the towns in the country. Perfect  organization and complete arrangements for polling every favorable vote.  This   entertainment, as is   usually  the case in church affairs h^re, proved  a success from  all points of consideration, and the. results  must be gratifying to all who   wen; instrumental  in  getting it up.   The Virginia hall   was  well crowded,   which guaranteed a satisfactory attendance  :is wi'll as  finances.   We are advised   that the net proceeds are in the neighborhood  of S50  or SfJO.    The fact that  tin re   were  as  many or other denominations  present  as Presbyterians, would indicate a liberality in the community that is most  commendable.   Even  among  the  entertainers were a   larue  number from  the Methodist  and Episcopal congregations.   Tho place is small, and while  friendly   rivalry   among   tho   church  congregations is pardonable, jealousies  should be carefully excluded.   By the  denominations helping one another on  all such occasions, there  is plenty of  local talent and general vim to get up  an excellent entertainmontat any time  while if jealousies   prevail   entertainments must prove a failure.   We are  glad, therefore, that  this spirit of liberality  pervades the entire  community.    As is the case at all  such  entertainments   some   numbers   of a  programme   are   better   executed , than  others, but when all of the participants  are but amateurs and giving thoir services free, there should be no adverse  comment.   In this instance, however,  all are entitled  to credit for the manner in which they executed their respective parts.   Mr. Fallows very ably  filled the position of chairman, calling  off the following programme :  Part I.  1  Selection '...Sandon Orchestra  2. Recitation Miss Jones  3. Solo Miss Wilson  -1.

I  also believe that the vapor e.f gold  would be heavier than the vapors of  other elements that, evaporate at a  lower degree of heat, and would take  position according to its specific gravity.  ���������'I now come to the explanation why  gold should be found in greater abundance near the poles than in any other  parts of the earth. It is an establshed  fact that the earth is an objate spheroid; that it is about 20 miles less I'foin  pole to pole than it is through the  equator; that the centrifugal force  created by the revolution of the earth  upon its axis caused the elements to  recede from the polar regions and accumulate and pile themselves l.'J miles  further from the equator to the center.  A natural consequence would be that  the lighter materia! would flow towards tho equator, leaving the heavy  material, of which the earth was composed, behind. Gtild being one of the  heaviest elements, a greater proportion  would be left near the poles than  would flow to the equator, just the  same as the sands in the rivers flow  slower than the waters flow."

A ball was held last evening of which the proceeds arc devoted  to the project to raise money to make a  start. As there are several pluyers in  the place with instruments, and many  others well up in music who are ready  to join, there is no reason why the city  should not have the best hand in the  country around. With the proceeds of  the ball and subscriptions that are  available there should be enough  money in hands to purchase the needed  instruments. With other entertainments, donations and subscriptions, a  good leader could be hired until the.  institution became a going concern.  nu.A  1110  MTrtnrlnMfnl  1IUUUUI1H1  in  Qtart  WlUl L  Iln  "r  Stfain  UQUlll.  Mr. Davidson, the new manager of  the Wonderful mine, arrived in town  on Friday with his gang of eightor ten  hands and has commenced operations  on the Wonderful mine to the west of  the city, that has been idle for several  months past. This force of men will,  soon be increased and the operations  and shipments of the mine will greatly  tend to give business its old time vigor  and activity.  educated scientist and do not claim  that my ideas oh the following subject  are beyond criticism ; yet I.have been  reasoning and!; speculating somewhat  upon the cause why the gold deposits  in Alaska and the Klondyke country  are so much richer and more'abundant than in other parts of the.workl.  "It is well known that gold is widely  diffused throughout the world, though  not in paying quantities. lam a believer in the nebular hypothesis that  all the matter that composes our solar  system existed in a vaporous, condition, caused by intense heat. It has  been.estimated by some scientific men  that these vapors extended half way  to the fixed stars; that their density  averaged about two ounces! of matter  to the square mile of space; that it revolved upon its axis with immense  velocity, and that in time it commenced to lose its heat by'radiation  into space; that it. contracted and became less and less, and its speed increased upon its axis until its centrifugal force became so great that the  planets were thrown off from the great,  nebula and assumed orbits of their  own. The planets still retained their  vaporous condition and intense heat;  they possessed a corona like that of the  sun at the {.'resent time, which is said  to extend out from the body of the  sun from S0.O0O to 100,000 miles, which  is caused by convulsions and explosions from the body of the sun. That  the physical condition of the planets  at the time they were thrown off from  the great, nebula was in somewhat similar condition that the sun is now.  "It is conceded by the scientific  world that our solar system is composed of a certain number of original  elements ; that, these elements existed  .while the planets .verc in their semi-  neublar condition of immense heat in  an amalgamated form; that one of  these is gold ; that all of these original  elements came to Unit melting and  vaporizing points at different degrees  of heat; that the elements that vaporize at a low temperature will still- retain their vaporous condition, while  the elements that require a much  higher degree of temperature to vaporize them will separate from the elements that vaporize at a lower temper-  D J.

The assessment roll was received  from the assessor and submitted for  inspection.  John G. Martin left last evening for  a two months' mining expedition into  the Ainsworth countn , where he, together with A. L. Rogers, is interested  in two groups of ilaiins, which they  will work this summer. One of the  groups, the Nellie Verdcn, consisting  of four claim?, lies en the north fork  ol Carpenter creek, while the other,  the Big Jim group, is located on Wil  son creek.

JC Gold Mining company, limited, (foreign) will come up  for heaiing before one of the justices  of the supreme court on or about the  20th June at Nelson. At this hearing  all the claims against the property,  which is in the hands of the liquidator  of the court, Richard Plewman will  be heard and passed upon. It is also  probable-that at this sitting an order  directing the sale of the assets of the  company will be made.  The Old Glory claim,formerly owned  and operated by Seattle parties, was re-  staked yesterday morning b}7, Paul  Hauck and the Heckman brothers.  They went up to the claim on Thursday evening and remained on the  ground all night. After staking it  they returned to town and went immediately to the government, office'  where the claim was recorded in the  names of both parties. They are now  puzzled to know who owns the claim.  It is estimated that $4,000 worth of  work has been done on the property.  It is situated on Springer creek and  has .splendid surface showings.���������Slocan  Citv News.  A  Shocking Fatality.  Mr. Christie, solicitor this city, received word the other clay that his brother Howard was killed in a lumbering  bush in Northern California in a shocking manner on the 21st of May, or rather  that he met the accident that day, from  whose consequences he died on the 1st  Of June. It appears that in that country they get out most of their lumber by.  the aid of logging engines���������a combination attached to one another and to the  principal engine by means of iron cables.  One of these latter broke and swinging  around struck him with such force as to  tear off'one limb at the body and uearly  severing the other. Another, brother  working near by carried the injured man  in.that way quite a distance to medical  aid. _He lingered in great pain for 11  clays. The deceased was known, we understand, to a number of people in this  province.  J. E. Skinner on Thursday was up to  the Rainbow'from which he brought  some remarkably fine samples of ore  ' that will easily-"niQ 1,000 u_uuoes in sii ���������  vcr. Considerable work has been done  on tins property and the paystreak  which is eight inches in width is gradually becoming larger. The upper  tunnel is in 45 feet and the lower 15  <"eet, the ore in the latter being of the  same grade as that in the former although carrying considerable gray cop- ,  per. About 130 sacks of ore are ready  for shipment. This property has a remarkable showing for the amount 'of  development work done and it is  thought by experienced mining men  that it will soon take its place , among  the. leading producers Of Springer creek.  ���������Slocan City News.   ".-' r   ������������������ ������������������    :  Celebration Postponed.  The Payne.  On account of so many of the towns  around celebrating the 1st of July, the  citizens'of Sandon have decided to postpone their celebration to a later day.  In all probability Labor Day will see a  creditable celebration hero. Our fire  brigade, athlefeu and sporting men gen-  eially want to make a big hole' in the  purses of outside committees and maintain the honor Of home, and they could  not do all if we celebrated the same day  as Nelson and other towns did. Our  ���������loyalty is here, but being bottled safely  like the Spanish ships it will keep for a  while longer.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following is a list of ore shipments over the K. &' S. from Sandon  for the week ending June. 10:  JUNE.

The new ore   house  a spacious building,is fully completed,  ihe tram is repaired and  a ! shipment  was made on Sunday last.'   All that is :  now wanting is new water pipe to connect with  the water   wheel   used   to  transmit power   to   the   ore   crusher,  that was to have been shipped  on  the  16th of May and has not  arrived! here  yet, to place the mine in  better' form  for working and shipping than ever before.   With the crusher in  place,  and'  an increase of 100 men   in   the : workings, it, is fully believed every month's '  business in the future will be a  record  breaker cf its predecessors.

Notwithstanding  all the  legislation  passed   at Victoria to assist the  advancement of mining, little or nothing  has been done to prevent wild-catting  and protect the fair name of the province.      Prospective   purchasers  as   a  rale buy with the conviction that they  are   making a   safe  investment,"' and  sellers are almost invariably disposed  to persuade them they  have   "a sure  thing." As all sellers will hot be honest,  and tell buyers there is always  more  or, less   risk in   mining   investments,  the government ought to step in,   and  while allowing the seller a reasonable-  latitude, protect the buyer as  far as  possible.'   If this was done  it would  tend to' placing, more confidence   in  the country���������the very "thing  that  all  should desire and would prove servic-  able   to sellers in  the   long run.    Of  course it is a' hard matter for any government to make a law to meet every  case;   but protection   should   be afforded as far as possible. , If government  inspectors   were   appointed   to  report the condition from time to time  of every mine   in the   country, giving  certificates to the proprietors on which  certificates   alone   representations to  the public could be made, it would go  far to establish better  confidence  in  mining investments. ; In other  words  if the outside world knew evtyy property Vas   inspected and  reported on  from time to time as  to development  done, ore   in sight  and other features  to guide a purchaser, purchasers would  invariably ask   for   these   certificates  When offers of sale  were made,  and  with them no matter, what the representations of the owners,   prospective  purchasers would  have   definite land  marks to! guide   him   before   making  investments.  As we said ��������� above all this would  greatly tend to establish better confidence, and it cannot be done a day  too soon.  . c -"S3  misfortunes, as many call them,  came  last winter an unprecedented depth of  snow and   consequently a   late spring  which caused many of the small mines  to    suspend      shipments    altogether.  Things are now,   however, changing.'  The;.Klondyke boom  is dead, but unfortunately   for   the   country  so. are  many who were so' foolish   as to go to  the north, with it; silver is advancing ;  and all of the min<������s,   large and small,  are taking a fresh hold on mining and  shipping.      The   ascent to' old "time  prosperity may not be as rapid as the  descent to the   late dullness;   but   so  long as the improvement is perceptible  and continuous,  it will encourage  the  confidence in   the   country   that  will  eventually'triumph.,.

AN   INDIAN  CRADLE SONO.  REPRESENTATION   BY   POPU-  ' ''"'';."-.-    LATJON. i  It is amusing to read the comments  of the government papers on the debates in . the House" on the government's redistribution Bill. The opposition members are called imbeciles, are  accused of talking against time, and a  score or more of other such charges  are laid at their doors. ,. Now, supposing for , argument's sake " all of  these thingso were true, how does it  mend the matter? How does it prove  the.measure was a proper one, and in  its application does justice to the  country ?  It is true that the amended Bill that  passed the House is a much more  reasonable one than that at first introduced, but there is no one who can  say it does full justice to the country.  It is more particularly with the Koo-  tenays we have to deal, and considering population, on the basis of representation on the Island, we,are certainly entitled.in this tract of country  to at least three or four representatives more.  In Canada the basis of representation by population was settled at  Confederation, and is acknowledged  now the country over Federally and  Provincially,barring British Columbia,  and why this province should be made  an exception to the rule it remains for  the government and its organs to explain.  It  does   not   take    some' political  papers,   and  especially those  of-the  "flippity-flnp" '.style,   like   the'   Free  Press, long to   get  up their political  bile when   a ghost of a chance   is before them,t to fling -tin cans  at opponents.    Because there is now a chance  of getting   the   American government  to come,down from its high horse and  settle ��������� several disputes  long  pending  between it and Canada, the Winnipeg  "flippity-flappe'r" attributes it all to the  statesmanship of Mr. Laurier.    Those  acquainted with the Behring sea muddle will remember that every time the  Canadian government, up to recently,  made an   effort   to settle   it   it   was  learned it could only be done   by giving the Americans the long end of the  whiffle-ti e'e.    Now, however, when the  American government finds it has the  sympathy of Great Britain in   its !war  with'Spain,r it turns   the softer side of  its nature to   Canada   and   becomes  more willing   to adjust matters   on an  amicable basis; and this turn of senti-  ment'across   the lines the   Free Press  calls   Mr.    Laurier's    statesmanship.  Even   yet the- Free Press  does   not  know how much of the loaf the Americans will ask   in  return   for' a very  small fish.    It  is time   enough   even  with Uncle Sam's change of sentiment,  for the Free Press to shout for Latirier  when   it sees, daylight   through   the  bush.

THE DERELICT.  ���������Y CH.UIUiS B. LEWIS.  Whilst   the   Rossland Miner,   the  Kootenaian and the Slocan City News  are sounding the praises of the Local  government, there   are   two, or three  matters  on  which  the   public   would  like   to   hear  expressions  of opinion  from ttiem. ..'Jb'irstly,   what  they mink  of spending $r,6oo,ooo on the Teslin  Lake7 railway;   Secondly, what  they  think of a government taking to itself  the power to spend the balance of the  $5,000,000    loan���������-$3,400,000-���������on  railways without an expression of opinion from   the peoples' representatives  as to   the merits of projects on which  the expenditure is made; Thirdly, the  name   of another  government under  constitutional   rule   that  delegates, to  itself such arbitrary power; Fourthly,  what the end   must be when   no effort  is made   to bring expenditures   within  receipts,   but recourse had to mortga-  ing year afle'r year   to cover deficits?  As for our part  we have no choice as  to men in   this matter,   but we cannot  see daylight  at the other end, so long  as  this system   of financing and   disposing of public money is tolerated by.  the people.  We   believe   the worst  of the   dull  times   of this   section ,of   country   is  over.    There were several causes conspiring to make   times   dull   in   these  parts the past  eight months.    In the  first place  there were  some   living on  the advantages of transient trade, and  the activity of that as it existed  here  some  15  months  ago   could   not   be  looked upon as permanent by any one  who was a careful reader of the signs  of the times.    Next came  the   Klondyke  boom to  participate  in   which  many miners   and   others,   who   had  been   heavy   spenders   in   the   local  towns, tied   up   their   purse   strings.  f/This  of course  also   diminished   the  business  of all, and  those   the   least  able   to stand the   loss   retired   from  business.    On the top of the effects of  the Klondyke boom  came   the fall in  the price of silver, which  cut  off  investments,   prevented  the opening of  new  properties   and   diminshed   the  working of many of the  older ones.  On the heels of these drawbacks  or'  The Slocan City News refers with  pride to the long list of able newspapers, itself included, that' are endorsing the Turner government. If  it would now only show what led up  to the conversation of some of them, it  would be doing a great service to the  country. As for Tlie Review we  have never yet declared ourselves a  supporter of either party. We have  ���������declared the financial operations of  the government are indefensible, but  have not been shown by the opposition how they would correct them. It  is simply shameful that this province  should be mortgaged as it has been  by the government, and . so little of  service to show for the liability; but  until the opposition shows us a way of  remedying this kind of business, we  stand uncommitted to either party.  They had a fiasco at Ottawa the  past few days in the shape of an investigation into the irregularities at  the Federal elections in Maniioba two  years ago. These things are never  gotten up to serve any useful purpose  ���������merely for some transient advantage  for the politicians. The proper thing  is to throw all these matters into the  courts where they will be disposed of  on their merits by judges removed  from the influences and consequences  of party politics.

Just as  iii.'.lit was closing down, with the brig  firiling  along   on   tin even keel and the  1 rce/.o steady, I swung myself upon the  .t'nil to,get :i  look at what seemed to'be  i raft floating past ns.  I may have been  overeareless or  a rope may have  given  way, but of a midden I found myself in  the water.   Tho man at the wheel wit-,  nessed  my mishap and gave the alarm  and threw me the life preserver always  ready  for  such  au  emergency,  and  I  bad no doubt of being picked up within ten minutes. !:I had seized the float,  when  down   thundered: a black sqnall  Erom ont of the west, and next moment  it was as dark'as midnight and  the sea  nil in a chop. I felt that it was all over  with me then. The men would be lucky  to bring  the  brig  through  the  fierce  3quall without thinking of me. Indeed,  if she hud had 100 men on board instead  of   12, they.would  not havo dared   to  lower a boat.   I got just one glimpse of  the craft as she shot away into the dark-'  uess and then began to work to get tho  life  preserver  under my arms:   I'was  buffeted and knocked about in the most  jonfusing  manner, and had the squall  lasted five minutes longer I should have  been drowned on the surface.   It passed  away as  suddenly as : it came, and ten  minutes later the sea had calmed down;  and I was floating with my head well  out of the water.  I had gone overboard   at about    7  o'clock  in  the  evening.   For the first  khree  hours my hopes and fears  mado  me  alert, but by  and   by I felt a dull  languor and was only half eon.-xuoiis of  what was going on. An hour after midnight I was suddenly aroused'from what  seemed to be a troubled  dream.   I was  bumping  against  something bard, and  my first idea was that  I had been cast  ashore.    It took rne several minutes  to  shake myself together and make otit that  I was alongside the hull of a vessel.    It-  was hard to credit the fact, but fact  it  was, and when I realized it I bad scarcely more to do than lift up my h;::uls and  seize the low rail and draw myself  inboard.    I had  found a  derelict  brig.  Both masts wero gone close to the deck,  much of her bulwarks swept away, ami  I knew by the feel of  her that she was  waterlogged. I took one glance over her.  and no mora, but dumped myself down  on the deck and was  asleep in live seconds.   When I opened my eyes, the sun  was  an hour high, and a big  albatross  was poised directly above me  and  not  60 feet high.   It did not take me long  to  master  the   details  of   the  wrack.  In the first place, she was loaded with  Australian redwood and could not  sink  beyond a certain  point; next, she  had  been  floating  about for mouths    and  months.   There was some wreckage  on  her decks,   but masts  and  yards and  boats and booms had gone clear off her  as they fell.   She had settled down until her scupper holes.were only a few  Inohes above Water, but  owing  to the  buoyant cargo eho could not sink doepor.  As a  sailor I made  her out  to be  a  Frenoh craft, and  later on I discovered  that she was the  Marie  of Brest.    She  was a small  craft, carrying  a  crew of  eight op nine men, and was a forecastle  ship instead of having a deckhouse  for  the men.   Tho  caboose or cook's galley  bad  gone overboard with the rest, but  the doors of the cabin and the scuttle to  the forecastle were tightly closed.   The  brig had been wrecked aloft in squall or  gale  and had at the same time sprnng  a leak.    Whether  her  crew had  been  washed overboard or taken to the boats  there was no means of  telling until  I  bad made an investigation below.  The first thing was to get something  to eat and drink. After a few minutes'  work I broke open tho cabin doors and  got into the pantry. Thero was wine in  plenty, as might have been expected,  ii:d I soon camo across some meat and  lift.nit in tins. I wanted water, but  il-.iio was none to be had, and so, taking what I could lay bands on, I went  ���������ju (i-eck and made a fair meal. Whon  ���������^ ��������� i-nd been concluded, I roturued to  tho cabin lor an overhaul. All the  charts and nautical instruments were  there, nor had any of the spare clothing  of captain or mates been taken away. I  found tho logbook, and though I could  uot read l/Yeucb I made out the latitude  and lo.uf/ituuo last recorded. As near as  [ conk! iiguro it out the . brig was then  i, i<!way between Australia''and' the  I.. po, lend 'the i date was. nearly seven  m'.;:'js old. She bud drifted to every  pcb.:. of ,Iho compass, but must have  sh-l;���������.-.'! nvai-iy 2.000 miles to the north  to i-ti.rh tbo !-not where I found her. It  was noon biii'ciiQ I began an examination of the lasiari.tto to see howl should  fare for provisions. I found flour, wines,  table waters, preserves, boxes of biscuit,  choice bacon, codfish and other articles  in liberal quantity���������enough to last one  man for mouths. Forward of the cabin  i found a storehouse, in which were  ioviit'iil -barrels of beof and pork, with  i'oui barrels of coarse flour, dried fish,  -.va^aagtaaBMiui.'a. ^  was corQjmtoot to handle s ship, and b������  was installed as oaptain and given an  able seaman as mute. We bad hoped to  get the provisions to the wreck before  night, but the gale continued, and we  had to stand by her for -80 hours before  it was safe to launch a boat. We iad  mutinied and taken possession of the  ship, but we felt that piroumstances justified it. Neither harm nor insult, was  offered our officers. After a few hours  they were allowed full liberty, and not  one oi us entered the cabin. There were  many threats as to the punishment we  ' should receive when the ship arrived in  port, but we stood firm and kept clear  of any further quarrels.  When wind, and sea finally subsided,  ! we boarded tho wreck, to find that oue  wonian and four children had  died   iu  -the lust - 34  hours , and that   the living  Were entirely   but   of  food and water.  .There was  no   doctor  aboard, the leak  was 'hardly to be kept under, and it was  plain that another 24 hours would send  the wrcc.1; to the  bottom of the sea.    it  was tbtrofore resolved to transfer everybody to rho ship.  Out saptain and mate  raved like madmen when they hoard of  this   decision, and   the last,.iiaineil.be'-  caiuo   so   violent  that we  had to   bind  him baud and foot.   The wreck nad lost  all her   boats, but  the  ship had three,  and when the work  of transferring began, it was  not interrupted   until every  person   had  been   'brought  sufely  oil'.  Then we   secured   most of the personal  baggage of crew and passengers, and by  the   time   the   last boatload was alongside the  Star the wreok- rolled heavily  to starboard  and port and went to the  bottom of the sea.  The   ship   had ,!nd   acoommodation  whatever for passengers, and  you  can  imagine  the mtisa  we  were in  when<  that orowd of people were taken aboard.  The Hollander flatly refused to act as  oaptain or,to have anything  to do with  the castaways. He said wo had deposed  him  by   mutiny  and   must now,run  things  to suit ourselves and  take  the  consequences.   Everybody had to bo put  on   quarter  allowance  at once, ! and   a  shift.was niadoup whereby  the .women  and''.children, were at .least   sheltmvrt.

I  never  found  nut just where,thev intended, to send ns  for  trial, bvit "presume it was Holland.  For some   reason or   other,there, was  a  long   delay, and at length matters were  complicated   by our  being , claimed as  deserters   from   an   American   man-of-  war.    The   people whom we  had saved  wore grateful enough, God knows, but  nil   others   looked   upon us  as n   lot of  pirates who ought to have been hung us  Boon as captured.  When we had been in jail for five  months, we got word from an American  who was pretty thoroughly posted on  the case that we should soon be sent  away for trial and that we might expect at least five years' imprisonment  apiooe. This news deoided us to make  au attempt to break jail, aud one night,  a 'week later, using tools which a guard  had been bribed to pass in to us, we  sawed away the bars of a window and  gained our liberty." Proceeding to the  harbor, wo found an American sohoon-  er ready to sail and awaiting our coming, and before our esoapo was discovered we were miles at sea. Five of us surrendered to the naval authorities and  took our punishment and served out the  remainder of our enlistment, but what  became of the others I do not know.  But for our aotiou 200 people would  have been left to go down with a wreck  on which tbey had drifted uhd suffered  for days and weeks, and yet that actiou  was rank mutiny, and had the ship been  English instead of Dutoh our two lead-  ors would probably have been hung and  the rest of us got long teriuu in prison.  ������/ wonae  \/\&l gress  ���������,!-,Y8f. teiiaeiii  The athletic  wonian is the woman of the day.

A good maii3' years  itfro,   when   the  long'lances  oi' tlie  Atitrira '-Australia  were quivering in a rosy fire mist, sul-  , fusing our southern sky, one midnight  some old-fashioned Welsh miners,with  whom I was a good comrade, ventured  on a discussion as to the cause of that  crimson haze, its flashing spears,  and  waving pennons.   One said :   ',It is   a  sign of war,,look you!    .That   is ' the  blood, see!    And tlie the other things,  look you !"    Another one   objected   to  such an interpretation,   probably   on  account of   the   SHperstitioh   it   contained, and observed :    "Damnc ! That  is nonsense,   I   do   know; look   you!  See!   You are   a   fool!     Look   you !  That is   the   reflection   of   the  moon  shining on the lted Sea."  If one is   asked   to-day   what   has  kindled such golden lires in the region  .'���������'. of northern lights  to   dazzle   the   im  imagination of so many of   our people,  well, the explanations of my old   cpm-  .',,,<������������������   nicies, given above; is just as sound as  any that the press has to   offer , us   so  1  far.     Anything   headed   "Klondyke''  serves to feed the popular mind.      We  ���������'!' get tales of Klondyke written  in   London or New York by   men   who   have  y just left off   writing   Deadwood   Dick  ���������stories for slum audiences to take   up  this profitable line. London illustrated  papers give us Cockney conceptions of  roughing it in Arctic snows, that  arc  ';    probably derived from   stage versions  ���������   of the Wandering Jew or   Mr.   Albert  ,'..! Calvert's "Discovery of West   Australia." ;yWe- even   had   the   Australian  press solemnly repeating the veracious  1 "' tale of one Patrick   Galoot,   of  Bally-  waughan, to a long-ear   Kerry   editor,  telling how Paddy  brought ������3,000,000  home in his pockets; how he employed  760 men in alluvial mines about three  'feet, in depth at Bonanza creek,' Klondyke; how 600 tons of gold were'got in  that creek by merely shovelling it up  etc.   Bat, he did not state why his ! 700  employees did not do a little .'ossicking  on their own account, instead of working for wages.   Perhaps they  did   not  .,; like to offend such; a  great   man;   for  fear that he might buy   Ireland   frOm  the British and only allow his faithful  seivivors to. dwell there.    Turn to- the  steamboat companies'   advertisers   of  e ckless statemen tsns to gold  won in  the Arctic Eldorado, that differ by   a  few hundred thousand  ounces  in   the  same column.

How, in  the face Of all this experience;   can   a  mad rush of  ,so   niany   thousands  of  men to tlie frozen north succeed at.nil?.  Fven granting that theklondyke fields  are ten time richer than bhe facts now  in our possession show them to  be,   if  the boomers are not lying   about   the  number of passages taken  already, in  the unscrupulous manner that all else  is lied and magnified in' order   to   get  people's riioney, then  we   are   facing  one of the greatest disasters known... to  modern times. Not since the crusading  days has such an armj   of   men   been'  filled with mad enthusias ������ to reach a  goal with no certain reward   in 'view,  except distress and death,    There was  a chance for plunder oh thec road   for  the ignorant cruaader, and a fair fight  in view if he met   the   Saracen.     For  many of our people there will be bilter  disappointment, even for   tlie   strongest.   The weak will be  trampled  into  the filthy show by the hoofs of a  frantic multitude   retreating   from   their  Alaskan Moscow.     Cannibalism, was  known to  have  occurred   among   the  frozen camps in \the   Rockies   during  the rush to California; and   men   died  there in no fair, fight.

GOLDWiTGH  ���������FREE.:  Of all places that are unlikely to  afford a glimpse of truth as to the value  of Klondyke alluvial, a   London, company's prospectus is not one that   will.  be suspected of giving   away   such   a  valuable fact.   Yet in oue. such   document I find that which   I   have  been  seeking for about, twelve months past.  The result is as follows :,   A  Mr. Sola,  who i3 a vendor of some  shallow alluvial claims in the heart   of   the   best  known creeks, and   who   is   stated   to  have three and a half years experience  of the Yukon, states that   the ' prodigious amount of; 12   oz.   of  gold   was  washed out of two tons   of; gravel   in  jLast Chance creek.   He mentions how,  with his mates, he sank several holes  .   aibout four feet deep, but omits to  say  if they raked all of the bottom off. Mr.  Ogilvie a, surveyor, whose pen-and-ink  calculations of the millions that.are to  come from each creek adorn every pro-  ' spectus and every gushing   article   of  truth-seeking press, makes   the foilow-  ' ing cold-blooded statements a base for  his ������70,000,000 pyramid, which he   expects two little creeks to return in gold.  "One man told me yesterday that he  had washed out a single pan and found  $14.25 it it.   Of course that may be. an  exceptionally rich pan . $5 to $7 is the  -.-. average on that claim."     That   is   to  say, if it were Ballarat gold���������;it. is  not  so valuable by 26s. per ounce   we   are  told���������5 to 7dwt. to the dish is a wonderful average, and 143 dwt. a stupendous  find according   to   Mr.   Wm.   Ogilvie.  Now, I do not deny that 7cwt. to   even  a , fathom   in   such   shallow   ground  would be a good average claim   to   be  owned by working men.   But if  such  ii, screech can be sent across the oceans  ! about such mean little eggs a? odwt. to  the dish, what may we expect   if  the  Klondykers get an ounce to the dish ?  Supposing.Mr. Ogilvic's new   chum at  igold mining, had been sending   notes  of the same kind from   Ballarat,   say,  J'or example, when the Canadian   Lead  *vas first opened, 10, 20, 30.   and   401b.  weight   of  gold   to   little    American  luicket���������about a dishful in  fact���������was  not nn uncommon return from the best  claims there.   One witness,with whom  j am personally acquainted, says even  ' 751b. weight or more wa.  brought   up  iii one bucket.   A Mr. Ogilvie . would  have produced his pencil and  written,  "Saw 900 oz. washed from a single dish  to-day.   If we give 7 or ten pans to the  cubic foot" (these are his own  words,)  etc., "we get 9,000 oz. to the cubic foot.  But, reducing this one-fourth, wo may  expect to get . . . millions of   billions  iu a few years," etc.     Yet   the   total  gold product of the   Ballarat  District  in forty-five years is   only   valued   at  ������72,000,000, but even that   amount   is  about ������20,000,000 ahead   of  all   New  Zealand.   In ten years from  the   date  of the gold discovery in Victoria about  400,000 persons were added to its population.

T  Its Advantages as a Distributing ^  ���������Center.  Rosebery is the only town in  Kootenay having  both railroad and steamboat connection that can  ,.   ���������>'��������� ship goods daily to ten different towns, whereby the  shipper can see his wares leave his hands and that  they will be received by the consignee within two  'v hours.   ���������        , ���������,   '  Its Adva-ntages as a Railroad Center,  ;��������� ; Rosebery-enjoys the position of king of lhe  -.- funriell as it were, fOrahe railroad business of the  whole of the Kootenays. All ore and matter for  shipment frOm.Nelson, Trail Creek and the Slocan  must, and is now passing out this way to the main  /line of the C. P. R., as well as all goods coming  in from Revelstoke to the Kootenay country.  NOTE. To substantiate this: The C. P. R.  are now putting in track weigh scales at Rosebery,  ;������������������>��������� the first and' only scales lhat has been put in on any  of the C. P. R. branches in Kootenay���������which  goes to show the importance of this point by the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company's actions.  Its Advantages as a Steamboat Point;  Rosebery claims, without opposition,   of being  the only junction on the lake, unlike'Slocan City,  where you can step off the steamer to awaiting  ;      train and continue your journey.    You can take  either a north or south train at thisterminus;  con-  '������������������'���������/..' sequently Rosebery is the best transient town in  the   race.    Nervertheless  we  claim Slocan  City  second in importance,  and would  say watch the  head and foot of Slocan Lake, viz.���������  Its Advantages as a Manufacturing  Center.  As a manufacturing center Rosebery claims to  have demonstrated the fact that after the careful  observation of the Denver (Colorado) Ore Coy's  manager, as the natural advantages of all points in  Kootenay for the treatment of ores lhe cheapest,  Rosebery was selected, and they now are erecting  works, with a capacity of 250 tons per day, which  will be in operation within 90 days; and it is their  ��������� intention to pay out monthly in the vicinity of  $100,000. I might also add Rosebery has the  largest water power from Wilson river flowing into  Slocan Lake.  AS TO OLIMATE.  C   ��������� '  Rosebery claims the mildest climate on Slocan  Lake, from its admirable southern exposure and  ..absolute   shelter   from   the   north; snow   always  leaves the place about the 15th of March.  AS A TOWNSITE.  As a townsite, Rosebery is without a peer. It  is possessed of all the flat land available at. the  mouth of the Wilson river leading to the valley���������  mining region���������consequently there is no danger of  any contagion. The title is a Crown Grant and  is perfect. All purchasers of lots are safe in this  respect. The only safe speculative townsite in the  Slocan is Rosebery.  Why should I say the only safe speculative town-  site in the Slocan? Because Rosebery business  lots to-day are only $150 to $200 each and are  bound to increase rapidly this summer. These  figures can, and will, double before long. The  time to buy is now. Don't wait till they are from  $700 10 $1,000, as you did in Slocan City last May,  go in on the ground floor and make a few dollars  in speculation : if you want to invest go to Van-,  couver or Winnipeg ; if you want to speculate and  and clean up money go quick to Rosebery before  lots are out of sight.    ���������  What's Wanted in Rosebery.  We want a restaurant.  We want a good hotel right away.  We want a first-class general store.  We want a butcher shop.  Anyone looking for an opening spy out this  place at once.  Maps and price-lists on application; prices run  from $75 to $200.  TERMS : One-third cash, balance 3 and 6  months.

The matter isadjourned till tne ^i in,  on a technicality.  The council appears to have difli-  culty in getting a competent man to  hang the new fire bell. Suppose they  send for Radcliffe.  The writs for the provincial elections were issued last Saturday, lhe.  25th of June is nomination day and  polling on the 9th of July.  There is no more Daily Kqotenaian.  It did not pay as none of these small  sheets can, and the publishers were  sensible enough to drop it-  The ladies of,Kaslo are in for a hive  of .Maccabees. They are more courageous than many other ladies when  they touch -'bees" of any kind.  Mr. J. A. Smith, an old Sandonite  who removed to Nelson.'.some months  ago to better his fortune, has left the  latter place for Butte, Montana.  Aid. Cunning is spending',more or  less of his time these days, on assessment work, He finds this a change  from wrestling with hotel work.  Stop that Cough ! Take warning. It  may lead to consumption.

Scott recently sold the Cleopatra, a  mixed proposition at Ymir. Mi.  Forbes is too modest to let the public  know the price, but circumstances go  to show it was a good round figure.  The C. P. R. have leased the old I.  X. L. store, next the B. N. A. Bunk,  and are opening an uptown telegraph  office, therein. It is understood that  Miss McQueen, ol' New Denver, a very  proficient operator, is to have charge.  Voters should remember that if they  are on the list for any particular constituency, they can vote at any poll in  that constituency. Il is not necessary  to go to where they reside to vole, us  is the case in.all tlie other provinces.  A lady called at a certain dry goods  store in town the other day and asked  for some hose. Tln.vl'-rk very obligingly showed her the stock of lb'-store,  when the lady said "I want tliOjlonircvii.  hose made." ''Then," said the clerk,  "you had better call at the lire, hull."  There are some queer thingn done in  the name of the law. At Victoria the  other day a woman was sentenced to  five 3rears .imprisonment for manslaughter,, and am.,n to seven years  for robbing another of $210. We suppose if the robbery was for a million  dollars the sentence would 'nave been  six months.  Mr. Williamson, who has spent several weeks looking over the country in  the Fort Steele district, returned Sunday, with the conclusion that he has  seen nothing better.than Sandon. He  says that as ihcre is much more snow  there than here, there is no prospecting done so far, and as for business,  outside of Fort Steele���������which is an old  place���������it is of a doubtful nature,  Some places there may turn out well,  but so far none of them have marked  features of permanency.  There are 70 men at work on the  Springer creek wagon road.  If is said there are yet four; feet of  siiuw up at the Red,Pox mine lingering for a further visitation of Old Sol.  He has more wcirk to do than many  people think of.  Shiloh's Consumption Cure cures  where others fail.
