There has been a complete Hop over  in the politics of Ontario as shown by  the result of the general   elections on  Monday last.   In the fall of 1871, ' the  Grit party defeated   the Sandfield Macdonald government, a coalition by, the  purchase of E. B. Wood,   one   of Sand-  field's cabinet, and through several reconstructions   have  held   office   ever  since, the longest   unbroken   rule  in  Canadian history ;but lrom the figures  of Monday so far m known.the resnlt,to  say the least of it, is doubtful.   Movrat  while Premier used to have a majority  of from 90 to 25 against the able W. R.  Meredith ; but should Hardy, his  successor have any majority at all,  it will  he insuflicient to be workable.

Feb. 28th. 1898  The Editor, "Mining Review,"  SANDON, Jl. C,  Dear Sir: In tho Mixing Review of  Feb. 26th, there appeared an article  relating to some inquiries that had  been answered in the "Miner" concerning the Ajcx mine, situated near Sandon. While it is true that the first  iins-yer pfafp'd that "so far as the  'Miner' ciin ascertain, nothing is being  done or. tlm Ajax grr-up," you should  ���������nlaO'glYe t"r\������'"~*min;i.��������� ui0j;, -i*������,������. .-.,���������������"���������������  sequently publishing a letter received  from J. K. Clark, manager of the Ajax,  winch stated that an average force of  nine men has been continuously employed on the property since it was  purchased by the present owners last  July. An editorial note was added to  the communication stating that the  "Miner" is very g!ad to make this correction, and it regrets that through a  misapprehension it should have done  an injustice." This appeared in the  daijy and weekly issues of Feb. 3rd,  3.39.S.  The "Miner" is called upon to answer  questions concerning mines and mining in nearly all of the camps in  Southern R. C, npd endcayors (q give  the desired information correctly.  ' I have since recieved a letter from  the management of the Ajax thanking  me for the correction.  The "Miner's" frequent and never  unfavorable mention of the Slocan  proves that your recent references to  me are rather uncalled for. In justice  to yourself and the "Miner" I trust  you will accept these explanations as  satisfactory and give this communication space in your columns.  I am,     yours truly,  C, E. R,\n*, '  Managing Editor Rossland Miner.  [We give spice to the foregoing as  it was written not that an explanation  from ns calls for it," but merely that  we may not be accused of doing Mr.  Race an injustice. Mr. Race is not  blamiible for nnt knowing all ab ut  thc affairs of the Ajax���������;.-.hut he is for  assuming to know, what no one man  could possibly know, all about all the  mines of this country offhand, .without  special enquiry- . When a "newspaper  man is governed by ordinary modesty  jt is much better for him to say to a  pprrespondent he is unable to aps-iyer  hjs question, than to do an innocent  third party an injustice, through an  explanation fished from under.: an  editor's finger nails' merely���������En. Rj--  yiEW.'l -.',''���������' '-,-..  ' In a talk last evening -with E. J:  Matthews, local representative of the  Omaha-Grant Smelting Co., he authorized the denial of the rumor that his  company would withdraw from the  Kootenay, "The company is -it present waiting to see if the Dominion parliament will do anything to protect the  home industry of the manufacture of  lead and lead products," said Mr. Matthews. "We believe such relief will  come, and would rather operate our  plants and mines under more favorable  conditions than now exist. If the government will impose a sufficient export  duty on load so th.it the Canadian  mines and smelters can supply the  Canadi in market, we will be ready to  start up again soon on a large scale.  The closing of the Tariff and Lucky  Jim mines and the Pilot Bay plant  is only temporary therefore, pending  favorably action by ti e govern men f,.-^-  B. C. Hews..   "TT"  Coal Oil in East Kootenay:  Besides iieing indisputably rich in  coal deposits East Kontenny'is said on  good authority to have many other resources awaiting development, on the  completion of the ( row's Nest Pass,  railway. One of these is the petroleum  fields in the southeastern portion of  the Flathead valley. This is a section  of the country hue little known and is  separated from the rcn/mindcr of the  district bj* a r- nge qf h}gh mountains.  Thc surface indications are good and  two different qualities oi oil have been  found on Kisneena creek, a short distance north qf th.0 jqtepnational  boundary line. Tliere is natural gas  from the bed rock that burns freely  on ignition. Dr. Selwyn of the Dominion Government Survey made a special  trip to the valley and found thc oil to  be genuine and also found that it was  in thc Cambrian formation as all oilfields recently found are in Trenton  formation.

C, StoeBS, of Spokane, Washington, ha taken a bond on the Lone Star  and Spotted Horse, near Ymir, for  *20,000 from H. A. McClure. The  property which is said to be a very  valuable one i? situated two and a half-  miles' sou th of Ymir.-three quarters of  a mile west of the Nelson.& Fr.rt Sheppard Railway on the south BJOpd of  Round Mountain. The first payment  of $2,50.0 is to be made on or before  July 10th;'.1898,-the second payment  of $2,50,0 on Jan. 10th. 1S99, and the  final paynient of *?15,000 on or In fore  July 10th, 1899. It is understood that  V/oyk On thp property will be com  menced about April 1st.  As our council seem to have a way  of their own of passing by-laws, we  give herewith the usages of other c< un-  cils, such as those of Victoria. Toronto,  and in fact all places, where rule is  observed. The -statutes of every province give municipal incorporations  power to pass such local legislation as  iri best suited to their requirements, so  Innv ,as it dues not conflict with the  legal rights and privileges of individuals, or other corporations. To this  end, a general outline of legal privileges is specified. The by-laws of  municipalities are therefore their local  legal restrictive enactments. The  spirit of die law is that these enactments should all b" considered and  passed in open council, with the latitude of the law before the councillors  in their deliberations.  It is only reason t������ assume that  councils in caucus or otherwise outside of regular meetings, decide on the  special requirements of their municipalities under by-laws, before any are  drafted. When that line is decided on,  tho clerk is supposed to draft them in  skeleton, that is ready to fill in blanks  for names, dates, terms, amounts,  rates, etc., in council. If the by-law is  to cover points on which the statutes  are not thc clearest, as ia sometimes  the ease, it should be drafted by the  solicit*.r, to be filled, as the others, in  open council.  With the by-law in skeleton it  comes before a regular meeting  of the council, when the title  and.preamble are read by the clerk.  To save time, one member moves  that tho by-law "be tai'en as road  a first itime," which generalh carries. Another member of the council  then moves the council into "committee of the whole," when thc mayor  may either remain in the chair, or  name some member to take it.    The  l'y-lliv/    la   cll*Tij-r-+-c������\l   ol������.w������o-*ij��������� ������tiugor  and every blank is filled'in by resolution, often, when councils are large,  by amendments to resolutions. It is  in this committee, the law supposes  the real work,and consideration of, the  by-law is done. When the last clause  is fin shed, tho council resumes by motion, the chairman reports the second  reading of thc by-lu'w. It is then deferred to a later date for the third  reading, which is done in regular  copr-cil. The by-law at such meeting  may be .tmended, il amendment is desired, but usually it is accepted and  passed. The law of some provi'ioes  requires a l,at,er. rneotin-j for formal  adoption, but this is a formality onlj .  Adopting the by-laws of another municipality bodily is neither law nor  good reason, as it often forces a lot of  timber on thc place cither worse than  useless or altogether unnecessary.  If all the aldermen at a board are  legally qualified, elected strictly according to law, and the by-laws arc  passed in this way, every feature of  them within the statutes and no feature antagonistic to a statute, there  is never a danger of the place being  put to costs by a by-law being attacked  by a party aggrieved at its existence.  In this country thc law calls for thc  publication of all municipal by-laws  in a local paper and the Provincial  Gazette, which former is desirable,  that all residents may know what is in  it, but which latter is a useless expenditure, as but few parties ir-tereflted  ever see the' (gazette, ' It is a source of  provincial revenue, however, at the  expense of the people. ,  Those who attended the lecture and  concert in Virginia hall, on'Monday  evening last, had what might be  termed an intellectual treat. The  Rev. Mr. Frew is one of those, who, in  travelling, not only sees the beautiful  ���������in nature and art���������the strange, the  curious and ridiculous, but stores it  up in his mind and has the happy  faculty of being able to impart his  knowledge and impressions clearly to  others: Hiving gone well over England, Ireland, Scotland and France, he  evidently saw most of the objects of  interest, and with his fund of humor,  he gave to his audience a high class  and withal amusing lecture, in fact,  the Rev. gentleman seemed to see  humor in even tne grave side (cemetery) of life and the^sacred lore of the  o'd land.  Owing to the blockade on the C.P.R.  the first number on  the programme, a  musical   selection   by   Mr. and   Mrs.  Millward   (New Denver),   had   to   be  omitted. ,   The   chairman,   Rev. Clel-  land, then called on Miss Wilson, who  gaye a solo with effect,   receiving an  encore   to which   she  pleasantly   responded.   During a respite in the lecture Miss Skinner, with guitar accompaniment and assisted by Miss Cliffe in  the chorus, sang a pretty ballad which  was   very much   appreciated   by the  audience,   responding   with   "Swanee  River."   Thc lecturer then concluded  with some witty anecdotes -.nd  character   sketches, among them   his deplorable condition and appear.mee as  a  result of  having to  walk  in   from  Three Forkesand leave his bestclothes  behind.   The Sandon Quartette   then  repeated their "Topical song" bristling  with local hits.   Mr. Wiikie McKenzie,  who is becoming quito a favorite with  Sandon audiences, appeared at his best  in his coster songs.  The Ladies,' A-jd of the Presbyterian  church, who were the promoters of the  entertainment, must feel well pleased  with the success of the evening, real-  ising quite a neat sum for their church  affairj*.  of great capital, is the purchaser. He  was here several days last week /md on  Saturday the deal was consuiuated.  His inspection or the property was  most thorough, and as soon as the  character of the ledge matter was  demonstrated by assays he took the  property at the price named without  delay.  At present the transfer is in the  shape of a 30-day option. This is to  allow time for the money to arrive  from England. The bond expin s nine  months after the date of its execution.  ���������Ledge.  With Scissors and Pen.  Send a Delegation.  Wc again beg to call the .attention  of our city council to the necessity* for  sending a delegation to Victoria at  once to press the claims of Sandon for  government consideration. Slocan  City is said to have assuran.ee of substantial grants, Kaslo, Nelson, Rossland i\r-d' Revelstoke have delegations  on the way. In fact if wo are to credit  the reports. Rossland is promised a  representative in tne redistribution, a  court house and a registry office. Nelson is to get equal favors, and Kaslo is  to he heard from, hut the greatest  mining centre of the Kootenay has  never yet been represented at the capital. Wo certainly have as strong  olaims as any of the places named, and  it will be really too bad if they are  ignored or neglected through the inattention of our council. We have  shown that through diligence and activity other places are getting grants  to which Sandon is at least equally entitled, and this is all \ye haye' to do in  the matter.  In three weeks over 450,000 shares  have changed hands.  Half of the Diamond J, near Three  Forks, has been bonded to Tho--. M.  Charles for ������G,000.  The Gladstone mineral claim at Ille-  cillewaet was put up at public auction  at thc Columbia House on Saturday  morning and sold to P. McCarthy, of  CaJgary.  The Dayton group,   situated  about  a mile from town have just received |  an assay   on their recent   strike.     Ic  goes 177 ounces in silver, 55  per cent,  in lead and $47 in gold to thc ton.  .--The certainty that the Dunsmuir's  are practically in control of the Noble  Five mine and will soon resume operations there has caused the stock' to rise  from 13 to 18 cents within a week.  The Spokane-Kaslo Mining company  has come to grief through financial  difficulties. The property which consists of four claims 'situated on Lyle  creek in the Ainsworth district will be  sold by the Sheriff at Nelson on March  the fourth.  The placer excitement continues ,in  the vicinity of Fort Steele says . the  Prospector. Over a mile of ground  was located on Brewery creek and a  large amount of placer mining will !bo  performed there during the coming  summer.  at its extremities first.   From England  c������me's the news that there is no capital  there   available   for  Alaskan     enterprises, and the few   idiots   who   come  out equpped with champagne and eyeglasses do not keep up a boom.     Hundreds of deluded people almost entirely  from the western  states  are  pouring  north, but they   are already   meeting  people coming out who report travelling at this season,as an impossibility.  By the time   the   trails- are1 passable  again, it is not unlikely that the boom  will have bust.   Under those circumstances is it justified   in   giving   to  Messrs. Mckenzie & Mann (or any , one  elce) large grants of public lands and  money to make a   railway   to  Teslin  lake.    Would it not be wiser to wait a  1'ttle and see if there is   any   reason-  why the railway should be built at all.   i IjH.       .  Report' of the Bank of B. N.

Redpath, one of the owners of the Le  Roi mine who has been in the Dominion capital for the past few weeks has  received assurance that tho government will not impose an export duty  on ore. If anything ie done in the  matter it will bo only on nickel ore.  Of Trail Creek stocks, Iron Mask at  42-48, Josie around 25 cents and Eureka  Cons, have been active. The latter  stock has been picked up to a considerable extent and the price1 has  strengthened to 5 cents. St. Elmo has  taken a decided slump it is down to  3 cents, and hardly any being traded  in.  The Rossland Miner states that the  Gold Hills Exploration A- Development  Co., of Toronto, which owns 49 olaims  in the Lardeau-Duncan country has  engaged the s.ervicea of W. M. Ogilvie,  son of "Klondyke Ogilvie," as manager.  Thc company will do a large amount  of work on these holdings during the  coming season.  Ferguson and Cold well of Kaslo have  given a company of English capitalists  an option at $75,000 on the Carbonates  on Spring creek. Several hundred feet  of tunneling has been done on the  property and some good ore bodies  have been uncovered. It is probable  that a concentrator will be built by  the purchasing oompany in the spring.  An order in council has been passed  by the Dominion government*confirm'  ing an agreement giving the Bank of  Comiueroe the Dominion government  banking business at Dawson. The  bank will take all the gold and give  drafts for it on any bank in Canada and  New York, Chicago and San Francisco  and will deduct the royalty.

He has plenty of debts, arid a former  creditor has things in shape to swallow  up the assets, so that creditors who  supplied the present stock will get'  comparatively nothing.

If there is "much done in the way of  street grading, sidewalk building and  repairing, and there is bound to! be  some, the rate of taxation will be a  shade higher than this. We see how  the expenses of the place could be reduced by $tj00o or 10 per cent., ibut  as we are not the council, it is at this  juncture hardly our, place to name the  possible reductions.  From appearances at Victoria the  Local government is resolved on aiding connections with McKenzie and  Mann's' Lake Teslin railway, , and  chiefly for the trade it may bring the  cities of Victoria and Vancouver. It  maybe that the future may develop  some good mining, timber, grazing  and,, perhaps, agricultural lands; but  the prospect hardly justifies the proposed expenditure in that country,  when there are so many districts about  whose resources there is no speculation, in absolute need of aid for development. At the present time, the  Kootenay country give's the govern-.  ;ment one-third of its revenue, and this  third would be easily doubled if there  were only proper facilities for operations. The record offices are not at  all properly located;, wagon roads  from camp to camp are imperatively  demanded, and many other aids arc-  in great need, and the government  appears to give the. matter but little  attention. If it was the fact that resources were badly hampered, there  would be a reasonable excuse for this  inattention, but such is not the case.  Per capita the province has double  the revenue cf any other '.province in  ! Confederation* but the trouble is it is  not equitably expended. The government has not given this section the  voice in the Legislature it should have  and as a consequence, we have not  the requisite force The House considers ' might right. Under '' the circumstances there is no cure but to  bear it until a stronger representation  is secured. The commercial interests  of the western cities appear to have a  full pull on the government, and all  other interests must sink in abeyance  while these cry "give."  We give elsewhere m' this issue the  orders of council settings, and -those  observed in the passage of by-laws  in the! most, advanced cities in the  country; and we trust that none, of  our ";'��������� city aldermen .will consider  it amiss or put of place*.; It is a  fact patent to all, that very often  men who have had no municipal experience settling in a new place,.; are  just"as clear-headed on matters of  municipal finance, local necessities and  requirements, as men who have had  extensive routine experience. We  fully admit lrom,what we have seen  that in our. city council this is-fully  verified. 'There are 'representatives/at:  our..;,Board, who, with experience - in  routine and general usage, would make  most 'efficient representatives even for  places"/much larger, than Sandon.  But Rome was. not built-in:.a. day,  neither can an alderman become experienced in 3 day., It is for those  who desire to post .themselves in routine, that; we have given these outlines.  We ofler, them in a spirit of the utmost courtesy, as we would like,to see  the prevailing formality of the country  observed in Sandon as well as else:  where, and we trust lhey will be accepted on the same line of friendliness  and good .will. ������������������}    " '���������''.';.  8.  ' A traveller, told The'Review the  other day that he heard more Kloii-  dyke around Sandon than cany other  part,of the country, and:, that he was at  aloss to understand, it; ,To a sensible, rational man, it.is difficult to  understand why men making:their living in mining, whether laborers or  monied men, should turn -their backs  on 'the prospects Sandon holds out  and seek fields in!'that Northern unknown. ; However, when, senseless  stampedes���������",are'decided on, the reason  there! ;are niore. going; fr011*, Sandon-  than ! any .other .section'; is because;  there are.more to go. When all- the  properties here are being fully worked,  there are from 1,100 to 1,200 nien  within four miles of the city with drill  and hammer in'hand; and a couple of  hundred more as auxiliaries, while the  entire mining force of the rest of West  Kootenay, with!Rossland thrown in*  'does^not muster many more than an  equal number. 'This, then,'is a tangible reason why the mining eleijient of  Sandon should be especially disturbed  when there is a disturbance in any  part of .the country.- !-!  : The- local snarler! would like to  Create sympathy, iii some directions, to  rotrJevo itaioi tunes,- Uy; falsely insinuating the desire of The Review is to  pull do\yh wages all around..;' We believe, expense's of living,: importance  and value of work to be done, always  regulate wages.. When expenses of  living go up or down, and the value ot  work to be done fluctuates, wages'��������� an  element in production, will, the world  over, go up or down.- In men's private affairs they pay! just such'wages  as, are^requj^ed__to_jhave their work  done. well. -The ��������� same rule, ought to  apply in all public offices���������the wages'  necessary to have, the work done properly should be paid, but we doubt  much if any community, notwithstanding the show of'the teeth of ;a,snarler,  will justify.more. This is our position  in a nutshell.  For the simple reason , that we do  not want to print a sheet that would  have to be carried out to the nuisance  ground on a- long-handled pitchfork',  by the scavenger, to protect the health  of the community, we are unable to  reply in kind to the penny-a-liner up  the gulch. Our challenge was not a  bet but a square, ofier to establish our  veracity against the print's ignorance ;  and as he refuses to'accept the offer  he acknowledges that fhe public . require no proof of either���������they are satisfied as to both. '  The will o' the wisp is not satisfied  with belying the Sandon Hockey players, he must abuse them besides, because they have not felt disposed to  give him their printing patronage. So  far. the home team have this year  beaten all competitors excepting the  picked team of Rossland, nearly twice  their weight, man for man; but this is  the mental size of the man. Five dol  lors' worth of printing patronage is his  measure. Oh ! fie, Roger, fie. , It is  a case of the galled jade wincing.  DON'T LET IT ACHE.  If your stomach, liver and bowels are  working propely you will have no  headacke. Burdock Blood Bitters will  keep yon right,so there is no need to let  vour head ach?. There is lots of proof  that it is so. "I had severe headache  for over three years and was not fiee  from it for a single day.

The Scene of the Remarkable Gold Discovery Last Season*.  Gainer creek empties into the south  fork of the Lardeau about 10 miles  from Trout Luke and has its source at  the f"ot of the lime belt. Soutli of the  belt for four miles is a succession, of  contacts, every thousand or two feet,  in each of which is a vein clearly defined for miles, the formations . being  lime and schists. In these ledges the  ore on the surface is g-tlena with some  .iron carbonates and oxides. In the  past Gainer creek wns known as the  location of the Badshot, Black Princre  and other promising properties in tlie  lime belt.  THE LADE  GROUP. "  As it may be called from its discovers, consists of five claims. The  formation is slate and the leads cut it  at right angles. Tne gangiic matter is  a brown swar with stringers of pay  quartz from two to eight inches 'Avide  running across it at right angles intervals of ten or 15 feet more. The spar  carries tellurium," a mineral not known  to exist in the Lardeau before this discovery. The very claim which the  Lade Bros* worked, was staked as a  gaicna proposition some years ago and  abandoned as Avorthiess. Tlie present  owners discovered that it wa"5 gold  bearing by accident. One r>f them  broke a piece of the rock in two, when  something inside held the_ two. pieces  together. On twisting,them apart thc  discovery was made that the link   Avas  "-a small piace of gold.  ������������������  - Development work was done on   one  'claim, the Olive Mable , on which a  small s aft was driven and a few tons  of ore taken out. Two tons were sent  down to the Kaslo sampler nnd gave  the.enormous return of ������1,100 to thc  ton. After thc discovery the whole  countrv round thc Lndc group was  token up but no one Avas fortunate  enough to get on to an extension of  the.lead or rock resembling it in that  vicinity. It is reported that the same  kind of rock is met with in other parts,  of the Lardeau and it is :ilso,said to be  identified with that of Boulder creek,  Colorado. Although the claims are  still undeveloped high figures have  been offered for the property but thc  discoA'erers haA'e so far preferred to  hold it. If it is as permanent as its  surface indications are rich, Klondyke  , will not be in it with Gaincrcrcck.  Corporation  Of the City of Sandon*  By-Lav/ No. 7.

Oa C-nnEnt.'niia)  fKs"  patches purporting to repeat the alarming utterances of President McKinley,  Secretary Long and other officials, are  beginning to effect public opinion on  this side of the Atlantic and create thc  impression that there may possibly be  truth in the reports which allege that  the loss of the Maine was not due to  accident, as was at lirst believed here,  although war between the United  States and Spain is regarded as^ improbable. Thc disposition in this city  is to regard the apprehensions respecting Cuba as altogether -exaggerated.  The Statist says this is a grave mistake, "as apart from sentiment, the  .-���������material losses inflicted upon Americans by thc anariichy in Cuba must,  not be believed."  The Saturday Review is of thc opinion that the affair is gravely critical, j  and comments on the silence of the  court 01 inquiry as being ,'ominous,"  its in the nervous anxiety 0/ President  McKinley and his ministers to avoid  a rupture Avith Spain they would obviously have hastened to publish anything which would help to stop the  mouths of Senators Mason and Allen,  who, with thc assistance of certain  newspapers, are yelping for instant  war, in best jingo style. Proceeding  the Review says : "Secretary Sherman having been silenced by the  simple process of not allowing him to  know anything; thc cxecutSA*c has  lately kept its secrets admirably, but  it is shrcAvdly suspected that this disposition of President McKinley is  largely owing to tlie reports of his  naval advisors to the effect that Amer-  ca is not in a condition to go to war  with Spain with 11. cerUinty of immediate and overwhelming success."  The Spectator is certain .-'that, the  United States government,.'".whether  moved by information from Europe or  being only desirous of peace, is anxious  to avoid a Avar."

Th3 snulter .it Trail ha.s been formally trunsferru > to the C. P. It.  If this weather continues, the hills  will soon again be ball-headed.  Between snowing, raining and th iw-  ing we are hiving, a long spell of  weather.  Mr. Harrington, of Slocan City, has  leased the Bartlctt hotel, and is now  fitting il \ip .'-jr'b.isino3s.  The K. & 8. announce that ttiey are  abreast of the times with a cut in rates  corresponding with that of the C.P.R.  J2. Ormeaby, of Rosebery, is like  Owen .Moure, "Owen Moore has run  away owi ig more than he could pay."  The bachelor members of the Club  are getting up a fashionable assembly  tor the evening of the 1] th, in Virginia  jail.  Mr. P. Burns has the contract for  supplying beef and railway ties to McKenzie and .Mann for the feslin Lake  railway.  The Reco people are busy m.uling  their elegant prospectus where it is  likely to be ot* substanti il service to  the Slocan.  Mr. P. Burns came to town Saturday  anil had to stay longer than he intended to on account of the irregularity in train service.  It is not unlikely that at their next  Monday's meeting the council will dc-  cide'to send a delegation to Victoria in  the interest 'nf'tbe city.  W. J. Lade, a promising young man  ot Silverton, was killed in a snow slide  near that place ou Sunday lust, and his  body wa', siiSsequcntly recovered.  Rosslnnd has, a sewer system, but  has no means of disposing of its sewage. Under those circumstances the  place is bound to be a very he-dtli one,  surely.  Three Winnipeg parties are returning from the Klondyke disgusted, and  on their w-y they found the bodies of  nino men who had been frozen to death  while tramping on the trail.  All reports to the contrary hotwith-  stand'ng, Mr. Eaton has not sold his  interest in the Whitewater mine.  Some English parties have an option  bn it, and that is all there is about it.  As the Teslin Lake Railway scheme  was much talked of in the late Ontario  ���������election campaign, and results have  shown it to be very nnpopular. it may  lead tu a change in the proposition at  Ottawa.  The Orangemen of Sandon are going  to have a social dance on the 15th. It  is likely the Catholics will have something on the 17th. Why not each go  lialf way and have a joint celebration  <8ii the 16th?  -"Parson" Brown is shortly to take a  position as store keeper on the Lake  Teslin Railway with McKenzie and  Mann. He is a good, reliable man,and  his many friends here will be pleased  to hear of his success.  It is difficilt to understand why  Kootenay newspayers should be getting up special Klondyke editions of  ���������their sheets to endeavor to induce local  miners, to leave tho country, and yet I  aotue of- thorn tiro dointr it.  ���������A small,blaze around the chimney  of the Denver hotel called out thefiro  .brigade, Tuesday morning; but their  services wore not required as the in-  aiates of the hotil had promptly done  -all the doctoring necessary.  On aecoant of there bping no m.il  on  the  C. P. R.

In speaking  of a   con  temporary the other day another said,  "Hisrbar is thcroar of a sucking dove."  To see, a dove '���������"sucking," and to hear  it "roar" the next moment,, would  certainly be amusement for the penny-  a-liner.  It was reported in town some days  4--*o that a fatal stabbing affray had-  taken place at Whitewater. The provincial police investigated "and found  that a ��������� rci ���������in' named Allan. had been  badly injured in a fight, but there were  mo 'knifeWounds of any consequence  ���������on his body, though there were some  knife scratche*.  A VILLAGE ROMANCE.  There could be no doubt about; it.  Molly had been a different girl since  she and John Lock had been "keeping  company." At least this was what the  village gossips declared, and surely ua  one would have, the temerity to contradict authorities so well informed. .And.,  the village gossips hnd spoken truth  this tiuie. Molly, the pride of all Lqng-  viile, the ;pretty country girl, whom nature hatl' endowed with a siiperabnn-  dsiuce of animal spirits,; Molly, the i'-iKT  ciii'-riu'g coquette, .had" been subdued,  ��������� andJohii Lock, the Tillage carp outer'9  'son, had conquered..

It  ���������proposes to abolish the.present Act,  .-and .substitute the provincial qualifications., On the other hand as no two  provinces have preciselv the same  qualifications there will be the anomaly of a House made up of representatives elected on different conditions in  the dilferent provinces.
