 1.    T\T0.  p.  ,SASDON,'B.;C.p&ATIJRDAY, .MA;Y:21, 189S  'PRIGE;;FI^E-;:���������ENTS:  IS! Ill  A  Visitor's  Impressions  Kootenay.  of West  (By W. M. Brewer, M. E., late of thc  Alabama State Geological Survey.)  (Continued from last week.)  Mr. Rathborne accepted   thc   super-  infcndency of this mine  after   it   had  been very much  "butchered"   by   his  predecessor, and Lam   satisfied   that  with the former's intimate  knowledge  of the district, il he had hud the man-  ngement'from tho first ( pening, agre.it  deal of money would have been   saved  which has already been spent in   per  forming unnecessary work. The Queen  Bess is a property which, to ho snecos-  fullv opened up, requires to   be   managed by an engineer  skilled   and   experienced in the  complicated   i'orma-'  ,tions of the district, and it is manifestly foolish for a company  owning  Sln-  , can claims to'engagemen unacquainted  with the locality to direct   operations.  The Queen Bess ore   is   of  such   a  ~'\     grade that when the mine is   properly  exploited,   unless   some    unexpected  contingency arises,this property should  rank   among   the   profitobly   worked  "��������� '"mines of the district.  Because of the complications in  the  formation it is impossible to  measure  up the ore' in   sight,   even   with   the  levels opened by thc usual mrtho'd, because development has shown thnj, the  '.squeezes and pockets occur so regularly.    About the only method by  which  a reliable estimate eon be reached   is  by checking the quantity of ore taken  from the drifts and figuring the quantities between the 1 vols on  thc   basis  of that, taken from the drift.    Even by  this method, the re3iilt,after the slopes  are worked out, may be found  not   to  agree with the figures, because it   has  been   already   ascertained   that    the  pinches and pockets in the   stopes   do  not agree wi.h those, oecuring in   the  horizontal drift.    At th'e time   of my  visit about 40 men were employed   on  the property.  I unfortunately did not have an op  portunity, owing to the impassable  state of the the trails, to visit the underground workings in any other mine  in this vicinty, but when due consideration is uiven to what has been done  in the disf.tiut, tho large sum paid in  dividends���������taking into account the  difficulties under which the miners  have ha.' to work, because of thc lack  of good trails and roads���������the fact that  there arc now no less than thirty-two  shipping mines within this limited  area, one cannot help but- be favorably  impressed, and conclude that this portion of thc Slocan has a brilliant future  before it.  The different systems of  transpoita-  tion employed  for   bringing   the   ore  from the mine to  the  point   of shipment make an interesting   study,  and  demonstrate the reason why the mines  ���������of British Columbia can be worked   to  better advantage   during   thc   winter  than   during   the   summer,   notwithstanding the deep snow.   The practice  of r.-iwhiding ore. down a narrow switchback trail has been the almost universal method adopted, but from  now on  aerial tramways will certainly become  very popular.     One of these   of  thc  Bleichart pattern, has  recently   been  erected between the Payne mine   and  >  the switch alongside the C.P.E. track.  -   The length of this is about .1,5*00 feet.  There are three spans, the longest   being about 800   feet,   and   the   ore   is  dumped automatically from the buckets into the biu,frori* which'it is loaded  into the cars;   The lleco   company,  I  understand,.'propose   to   construct  a  I ram way 9,993 feet in   length,   which  will ascend the  mountain   2.600   feet,  iand cross the Noble   Five   slide   at  a  height of 560 feet, with a span of 2;700  fret long.   The'method "of  transportation employed at the/Idaho mine is   a'  gravity tramway built   up   the   gulch  connecting the mine 'with thc concentrator, the latter being   located   on   a  siding of the C.P.R.     When this tram-  road was built sheds were consttucted  in order to keep the track clear of snow  during the winter.     These were  supposed to be substantial   to   withstand  the weight of a snow slide, but during  the"winter of 1896 and   1897,   when   a  , slide, occured, it was   found   that   the  strength of  the   timbers   was   inadequate. .  When it is, considered that one horse  ' can easily pull from one to one an:l a  half tons or ore proparly loaded in a  rawhide, and that the same animal can  duly pack about 300 pounds down the  trail during the summer,'it may be  readily understood why the mines, up  to the present time, have proved more  profitable to work during the""winter  seasons than at any other time.  I understand that a sufficient sum of  money has been set aside by the Provincial Government for the construction  of waggon7 roads between the principal  mines and Sandon.   This will of course  aid very inatciially in further developing the camp, but T am of the opinion  that the aerial tramways will prove the  most economical method for transporting ore from the min^s, as the workings aro all located at :t much higher  altitude than the towns  This, of course, makes it easy to construct these tramways in a straight  line, and the distance is therefore, very  much Ies3 than in the case of the waggon road.  !i dUlbllft.

SATMMYr ;MAf2i,1898;;  ^befflMnino IReview  SANDON, BRITISH COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY MAY 21, 1898  Subscription $2.00 Per Year  Strictly is Advsace.  ANOTHER PULL.  Our  local  government   has  voted  Mann & McKenzie $4,000   for probably   400 miles  of the   Lake Teslin  railway,   and   all to please a few   so-  called jobbers on the coast, who hope  to   make   money    through   northern  trade.    In return, all the  government  is to get  for the $1,600,000   is 4 per  cent, of the gross earnings of the road.  All this  Teslin Lake proposition   has  done so far is t. damage  to an extent  the   mining business of the Kootenay.  So long as  that proposition   is before  the country and until traffic over it is  proven to he  a losing game,  as it will  be eventually, it will have a depressing  influence   on investments,   and consequently on mining, in this country; and  that with the few shekels trade over it  may throw in the pockets of the coast  cities   jobbers,   is    all  it   will   ever  accomplish.    In return for  this heavy  bonus the   provincial treasury is to receive 4 per cent, of the gross receipts.  Whether   these receipts   before oven  the   4 per cent, is paid  on them, will  be made up of the actual earnings   of  the road  or  the alleged earnings on  the  long haul basis,   it is  at present  impossible   to  say.    On   leasing   the  Nakusp & Slocan road,   the C. P. R.  promised the government 40 per cent,  on the actual earnings and repaying it  on the supposed earnings on  the long  haul basis,  by which   the government  loses   annually   a   very   large   sum.  Whether or not, we say, there is a slip  in this, latter proposition too   that will  permit   Mann and McKenzie to bamboozle the government also  deponent  knoweth not    Time alone can tell.  We are aware that it is obligatory  on provincial governments that have  large tracts of country to open up, to  aid railways, but this aid should be  given on a well-defined basis that is  sure to bring in satisfactory returns  through settlement and territorial development.  In 1869, the Sandfield Macdonald  government of Ontario set apart  $3,000,000 for the assistance of  railways; but in no case was any portion of it given to sections of the province that already had facilities, nor lo  districts that were not already partially  settled���������only where an assured consequent settlement fully warranted it.  In 1892, thc Greenway government  of Manitoba borrowed $2,000,000 to  aid railways, but only to such projects  as gave promises something similar to  those referred to in Ontario. How  different with the philosophers of British Columbia. When the Ontario  government gave this grant, it gave it  out of money already in thc treasury  a-ccumulated as the result ol receipts  over expenditures. When Manitoba  gave its grant, expenditures were well  within receipts, and the province had  no debt. Plow different here again.  Though per capita B. C. has a revenue that is the envy of the other  provinces, and ever year our expenditures are made to exceed it, the government having on diflcrent occasions  been forced to borrow money on mortgage to meet running expenses.  Instead too of being clear of debt  ���������?>nd having a surplus, as the other  provinces we have named had when  ,they subsidised roads, our country is  already mortgaged over the ears for  ephemeral projects and wild-cat undertakings like tlie Yukon project until the tension is so great thai, a snap  may occur at any moment.  Over tlie heads of corporations, the  Local government is taxing the people  ���������of the province within corporation  limits on personal property, income  and God knows what nil, to raise  money to run the government, and at  the same time wasting the proceeds of  mortgages weighing like millstones, to  bonus   railways  to please  the  boom-  hut we hope stern justice will overtake  the others. '���������"������������������ .  Our province has magnificent natural resources, , but even the strongest  horse can readily be overloaded j and  we know of a fact that already much  has been done, to strangle it in its infancy. A debt of some $7,000,000,  and. -power given the government to  place $5,000,000 more on the back of  that.if it does not prove the last straw,  will at least hamper-the, country for  years to come. ���������  -In any.event, on the eve of a general election, the government should  have left this additional debt for the  people to express^aiu-opinion oh.  Denouncing the government now for  the act can do no good,: as the bargain is! sealed) and the debt is a live  reality. ,. Ail we call say in conclusion  is that when the people are marking  their ballots in July next. we sincerely  hope they will mark those candidates  committed, to.��������� "/economy/ and retrenchment, that the treasury may as  far as possible be enabled to meet its  obligations! without! more serious consequences.- )  '.'-  J; R.

The election'is rapidly approaching  and it is, the duty .of the voters of the  Slocan district to make a careful selection of candidates.. A man of capability and influential standing; who  has interests in the district and knows  the needs of the.peopie j who is not  one day in,harmony with the government and the next working with the  opposition forces; who is!an industrious' and' conscientious worker,' is the  character" of man' that ,the News,intends to support , in'' this campaign.

Our suggestions may, not  meet with the approval of the..News j  but taking the7 history of events in the  other, provinces and reasoning from  analogy, making a 'due allowance for  the varied conditions here, we7 will, in  our succeeding issues endeavor to outline a course'. :of: action for the new  government to pursue in the -interest  of the peoj>le, and suggest that the!  candidates whose vieiys .most nearly  coincide are the most entitled to support in the coming-contest.'  THE  ISLAND OF APPLE TREES.  D'alton  McCarthy.  cl-  ask   again,  sters of   the  west.     Wc  where will this all end ?  In the present  financial situation of  this province,   thc government   is not  warranted in bonusing to any sensible  extent   even a deserving railway  pro  ject on whose future success  no sane  man will cast a doubt; but in thc face  of this serious situation, the boomsters  take thc   go/ernment   by   the  throat,  and the latter timidly allow themselves  to be throttled.    The   vote   on   this  grant was carried in the House by 17  against 12, showing that   17 men   will  have much to account for before their  constituencies.    Some  of them  from  their residence in. coast cities will, no  doubt,   be  applauded for their  acts,  The foregoing'is from the'Slocan  City News, and all ..will, of course,,  acknowledge that the News . has been  especially chosen; by; Providence to  make candidates for the full parliament of-the. country. ' Delegations,  conventions and requisitions, are of no  earthly7 account after ,the News/sends  out its fiat. ��������� The News wants ��������� men  who are not one day in harmony with  the government and the next working  with the opposition forces.". It wants  a '.'true blue" who will endorse the  government, if it so decides, in giving  not the, $1,600,000 alone but the  whole $5,000,00.0 jtalked of for railways to the Klondyke road, because it  pleases the boomster jobbers of the  coast. This view may suit the News,  but we know it-does not suit the people of the province.    .;  To us it is a   matter of no importance who governs the country, so long-  as it  is governed properly.    We are  free to admit  that  to the present we  have not seen ennuneiated by the opposition principles calculated to govern.  the country as we think it ought to.be  governed.    We have seen much  fault  found with the working of the government, some of it: properly taken, and  much of it decidedly less so ;   but this  does not make a government   nor the  policy for a government.     We   want  building up -as well as  tearing down.  For every objection taken . by the opposition,   it ought  to be ready with  a  substitute.       For   .every    blemish    it  points out, it ought to be ready, with a:  cure.    No   opposition  can ever hope  to win the  confidence of the   country  on any other lines.  . .  From the nature of things, in the  constitution of our house, where party  politics are ignored, no man can be  absolutely independent, and if hs was  so, he would be of ho earthly use to  anyone, as he would have neither  mind nor conviction of his own ; but  where party politics are unobserved a  representative has more latitude to  observe proper principles of government, a suitable policy for the proper  management of public affairs and  the development of a young coun-  tiy if he is only possessed of the experience to suggest them, and the  brains and ability to work them out in  detail. To a journal of the News  stamp, however, this appears to be a  matter of no moment.  We are to-day face to face with the  fact that the province stands , to be  saddled at once with a mortgage debt  of at least $10,000,000 as a total, and  with an annual deficit of large proportions notwithstanding the fact that, we  have the handsome annual revenue of  nearly a million and a quarter dollars.  The people or those of them who  think for themselves are clamoring  for a reversal of this without the impairment of efficiency, and if the News  will only assist in unearthing candidates who   are ready with a  matured  In the death of, D'Alton McCarthy  at Toronto' last week,  the result of injuries received in   a fall from  his dog  cart,   Canada loses  one of its  ablest  lawyers  and most capable   and  independent, statesmen.

In. short   the Mail and Empire   now  does him the justice   to say it believes  he never .had a desire to 'become  a  cabinet minister of any 'rank.  ' The writer, knows ithat while in pol-  itics in Sir John Macdonald's time, he  was always consulted by that statesman as to.the, constitution of cabinets,  and could at any time,, havibeen a  member of Sir John's cabinet had he  chosen to enter'it: The fact that Sir  John's successors did not consider his  abilities: as Sir John invariably did  may have been the cause of,,- the expression he used, on which his political opponents.ever after .so disingen-  iously, played. ..'���������.-.")���������.���������      ''���������''-���������'������������������������������������  ;���������'" Considering everything, "though   he  may. sometimes -have been rasher' -in  his movements than., other statesmen  are,!the honest critic must,say.that in  all his movements he was  honest and  sincere,  which could not  always  he  said of those who took the  most exception to him.

MiS_l Mi.  Don Garlos.Pretender to the Spanish  Throne.  "Who is Don Carlos, and who the,  Spanish Legitimists of whom much is  being heard these days?  Don Carlos considers himself thc  rightful king of Spain, and the Legitimists are his followers.  The origin of the  Carlist   imbroglio  dates back to 1833, when   king   Ferdi-  .   nand  VII.,   after   troublesome   reign,  breathed his last.    He  left  no   male  issue, but only   an   infant   daughter.  Donna Isabella.   The Salic law, which  had been in force sines 1713, excluding  jfercjales from the   throne,   the   crown  should .therefore have  passed   to   his  brother, Don Carlos.    But   Ferdinand  in the later years of his life had   beei.  jibsoluteiy under   thc   domination   of  his fourth wife, Chistinu of  Naples,   a  jliandsome   forcible   and unscrupulous  woman. Her sway had been confirmed  by the birth ef her  daughter.. Isabelle  in 1S30.   She induced  the   weak   and  ailing monarch to issue a decree disinheriting his brother in favor of his  infant daughter.     That ho   transcended  liie royal prerogative is generally  conceded.  Immediately ifftGr his death the  baby Princess Isabelle was declared  Queen of Spain, under the regency ' of  Jier mother. For five years afterward  the couutry was desolated by a terrible  pivil war carried on with varying fortune and unwavering ferocity, between  the Carlists and the partisan? of Isabelle. But Frunce and England sided  with the latter, and in 1839 Don Carlos  ciuiUod Spain in despair. Tho question  of succession appeared to be settled in  favor of Isabelle II., a child not then  in her teens.' '  Don Carlos, the first Pretender, died  in 1855. A second Pretender arose at  once in the person of his son, Don Carlos, Count de Montemolin. In I860 an  attempt was made.in Valencia to start  the Carlist insurrection afresh. The  Count was defeated. ITo and her  brother Ferdinand were captured.  They were released only after signing  a renunciation of all their claim to the  Spanish ihrqrip.  There was a third brofher,Don Juan.  In !������6S,when Queen Isabelle was forced  to fly from (Spain and Carlism once  more became a possibility, Don Juan  abdicated all his rights in favor of his  pop, the present Don Carlos, who thereupon became tho third Pretender. Nor  were his pretentions a mere pretense.  .Prim and Sagasta, the two most powerful members of the provisional government established after Isabellc's flight,  offered him the crown. But rhe gift  was conditioned On the promise' that  f.hp country sjio'uld have apop@tit������tioii,  9 nd that Church and State should be  separated. Don Carlos refused thc gift  ji'it canie trammelled Ijy ,ipy con?  t]itIons.

Thc river is now navigable for  15 miles above tlouser lake, mid the  steamer Idaho makes regular trips.

There are a  large number of valuable- claims in  the locality which cannot be worked  for lack of transportation facilities.  A barge has been built on Housor  lake, to take horses across, and to  bring down ore for shipment to the  smelters. The Idaho will try to bring  the ore,down the .ioiver river, to Kootenay lake to meet the large steamers,  'i'he Gold Hill company have a number ot nien at work building a trail up  Houser creek to their property and are  taking up horses to pack in supplies  to their claims.

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  hours.  Its Advantages as a Railroad Center.  Rosebery enjoys the position of king of the  funnell as it weie, for tlie 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 that has'been put in on any ' (  of the C. P. R. branches in Kootenay���������which  goes to show the importance rof Jthis 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 oil the steamer to a waiting  train and continue' your journey. You can take  either a north or south train at this terminus; consequently 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.���������  ROSEBERY AND SLOGAN CITY.  Its Advantages as a Manufacturing  Center.  As a manufacturing center Rosebery claims to  have demonstrated the fact that after the . careful  observation ofthe Denver (Colorado) Ore Coy's  manager, as the natural advantages of all points in  Kootenay forjhe treatment of ores Ithe 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 CLIMATE.  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 T 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, d These  .������������������figures'can, and will, double before long. The  time to buy is now. Don't waittill they arc from  $700 to $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 Vancouver or Winnipeg ; if you want to speculate and  and clean up money go quick to Rosebery before  lots are out of sight.

N..% found (Burdock Blood Bitters)
a wonderful blood purifier and gives
his experience as follows: "I was
very much run down in health and
employed our local physician who
attended me three months, finally
my leg" broke out in running" sores
with fearful burning1. I had thirteen running sores at one time,
from my knee to the top of my foot.
All the medicine I took did me no
g-ood, so I threw it aside and tried
B. B.B.; when one-half the bottle was
gone, I noticed a change for tho
better, and by the time I had finished
two bottles ray leg was perfectly
healed and my health greatly improved."
