be that will not be able to get any, ore
to work on for some reason or other;
The Braden syndicate cwns; the smelter,7 and the impression prevails that
Omaha-Grant Smelling' company of
of the United.States is ��� heavily interested in the enterprise. It is thought
that the syndicate purchase the Pilot
Bay plant, so that in the event of .conditions changing;as regards the Slocan
ores.by local"7 smellers, the Ohiaha-
Grant'company, which now treats ' a
very considerable proportion of the
silver-lead ores of this district, will not
lose any business opportunities.
"It is a surprising fact to me that
nearly all theore mined in the S'ocan
country is being sent to the United
States for treatment. It costs $22.50
tier ton for transportation charges and
treatment, and in addition to this a
duty of ont and a half per cent, is collected by the United States on the lead
in the ores. This runs into money and
if it were not for the fact; that the ores
are of a high grade they could not
stand such heavy lixcd charges and
duty and leave a residue of profit for
the mine owner. As I understand it,
too, the smelters on the other side of
the line'pnly give 95 per cent, of tlie
value of the lead. Our people are
growling over a .charge of ��11 for transportation and treatment.
"To show how rich tlie ore cf some
of the mines of that'section' are'l need
only rhentiqn a recent shipment of a
cirJoad made from the Ileco mine to
the Smelter of the Omaha & Grant
Smelting company's works at Omaha.
The net returns from the carload were
��4,576.20, while the gross returns were
$5,35.1.49. The freight,'duty and other
fees and charges on this carload of ore
footed lip a total of S755.29. The ore
assays 405.5 ounces in silver and 50 per
cent, lead to the ton. If this ore was
smelted in Canada look at how much
of these charges would have remained
here to do the country . good."���Rossland Miner.

Not long ago a prospector was floating down Snake river on a rudely constructed, raft, which served the purpose
of a, boat, en route to the Seven Devils
and Mine of. the'numerous bars'.below
Huntington, he had"to pass the placer
mine of Mr. Ruchman at the mouth of
Powder river. Mr. Ruchman 'has a
wheel that hoists the water out of
Snake river into the bar he is mining.
In , some unaccountable .manner :the
prospector, who is a Dutchman, allowed his raft' to get into the current,
whrich drew the raft and tlie. Dutchman into the hole. In a few seconds
the whole outfit'.was ground through,
blankets, rocker, grub, Dutchman and
all. Strange as if may seem the man
escaped with about enough clothes on to
wad a shotgun, a wetter but wiser man.
The balance of the outfit was swept
down the stream. The only explana:

cr, the general sentiment  seems   to
"It is a great country; a country
with a future; .-There is; a fine,; hard,
bracing climate, the climate that puts
iron and grit into men's bones, and
there are all good things to be got out
of the ground, if people-will work for
them. What it wants is more men
and more money. Why don't Englishmen think more of it as a field for
English capital and enterprise? Surely thero is an excellent opening both
for the investing and the emigrating
Briton there. Things don't, perhaps,
move quite so fast as in the States, but
they are safer, and you are under the

Coming to Sandon.
E. H: Tomlinson who with Dr;: Hen-
dryx, recently sold the Last Chance
group to'a 'syndicate represented by
Scott. Mc.pbna.kl, is a 7gu6st at the
,Phair.' Mr. Tomlihson states tha tT the
Last . Chance Mining ' and MiJ'ling
company has been disincorporated be-
e'aiise the new. syndicate prefers that
the interests should beheld individually. .. He states that the Last.Chance; is
now shipping from two to ten carloads
of ore and the', vein iu No 3 or the lower tunnel, when' lie saw it last Monday
had shipping Ore and carboriates from
wall to wall, a width of about five feet.
The shipments are just commencing
and it is expected that during the; raw-
hiding ;_ season /several. hundred
tons per month will be'shipped. -The,
���nine is looking fine and the outlook is
tnat it.will become one of the heaviest
shippers, in'the-district.' ; -
Mr. Tomlinson will start 'i camp at
Lardeau next spring and would have
done so this winter.had -.transportation
facilities been better. He is interested
in thc Hope and Park Region,two
miles below the big jam on theDuncan
river. There is a 60 foot tunnel on the
Hope.
The ledge breaks over and the
height of the tunnel.is the width- of
vein. Assays give a result of70 ounces
in silver and 40 to 50 per cent. lead. It
appears to be a fine concentrating proposition, the pays'reak being about IS
inches in width.. Mr. Tomlinson is interesting himself in the question of
'transportation facilities and as soon as
they are improved there will be many
others besides himself who will be actively engaged in the work of development. Mr. G.O. Buchanan owns two
claims in the same ledge and adjoining the Hope.���-Nelson Miner.

The premier came to the leading passage in . his  speech,   introducing   the
tangled question ofthe Niger and conflicting claims and  interest ��� of  Great
Britiiii and France in that7 section  of
West Africa.   He said :
. "It might not   achieve   the. general
.conciliatory.process desired if!   entered into a/l   the   negotiations; between
the powers respecting Africa.;, We are,
ali't.ware of tlie great extent;  of., territory oast loose during the last 20 years
in Africa and put up as the   object   of
acquisition     ior  several   enterprising
governments.    We desire that the territory should   be   governed   on   strict
principles of right and with a constant
re aro to its i rosperity and to  the in-
tereKts of the empire.   We do not   desire, unjust   and   illigitiniate   achievements and we do hot wish to take   territory simply bec.iuse   it   would   look
well to paint red on the map. , Our ob-
jcels are strictly business.   We wish to
extend commerce, trade, industry   and
civilizutinn to  throw   open   as   many
markets as ; nssible and   to   bring,  together as  iiuuiy  consumers , and', product i'P as possible -and to open the natural highways and waterways   of  the
coiitineiit.' ; ,.
His lbrdirhip then]passsed on to
speak of the situation in the.-east.s- He
,'said this history ofthe past years was
that tire European concert had -failed
to prevent Greece from going, to war,
bnt it had succei ded in preserving; the
peace of Euro].e. It was,: he'submitted, a great iaid praiseworthy! achievement for tlie '...concert to, avert that
calamity. He continued : "Had " the
concert, exerted all its influence to pre-
verit:Gr.seee from going to war the res-
poiisibilifi might not have restedupon
it, oft rasing Greecefrom the map;"
To the Kdltor of Tlie Mining Review:
Dear Sir,^���The, Leage here has  the
habit of writing squibs about  people
and  then  refusing   to admit a reply
through its columns!   For this reason
I have to ask yf'.for space to reply to
ah item in this r..week's issue in which
it stated  that   I had utterly failed to
prove certain charges  I had preferred
against  the   Mining Recorder of New
Denver,   and that the   Gold Commissioner -had slated they  were "Worse
than groundless.'.'   Why, then,  did he
not say so.at:the time,; or why was it
twice  postponed for a  decision? .He
must have understood  his job.   When
the government  wrote] me   they were
going to send the papers to Mr. Dennis
for investigation  I wrote them  to enquire   if the investigation ,would include the charges   I made against   A.
Sproat in 1896.   Their reply was  that
it would not.   I had no intimation  of
when the trial would take place, until
late the previous evening,  thus leaving me no time to get my witnesses,
who were   working out of town.    Ae
Sproat and I swore diametrically opposite on almost every point at issue
I could see nothing to delay decision,
and proceeded to write out the following   three objections    to   the   whole
investigation    which   I    handed    to
Mr. Dennis' after he had given his de:,
cision :���'"'...'.;.. ,<<���'���/ , ''.;,���

London, Nov. 9.���The brillancy of
the gathering at the Lord Mayor's banquet at the Guildhall this evening was
somewhat marred by the tokens of
mourning for Her Royal Highness, the
late Duclies8 of Teck. The entrance
of the Marquis of Salisbury and Arthur
Balfour, the first lord of the treasury,
was the signal for loud applause. After the usual loyal formal toasts, the
Marquis of Landsdowne, secretary of
state of war. responded for the "Army."
In-the course of his speech' he eulogized "the gallant work being done on
our Indian frontier, especially by native troops, who have long wished to
stand shoulder to shoulder with  us."
The Marquis of Salisbury on rising
was greeted with several minutes of
continuous cheering. tie began by
deploring the engineers' strike, which,
he said, "involves the future prosperity cr disaster of tho country," but
added that he was glad to say there
was a renewed prospect that the intercession of the board of trade in the
matter as a peace maker would prove
sucei'.'sful.
After referred to the conduct of the
troops on the Indian frontier in terms
similai to thoso used by   the   Marquis
Sandon Still Gets the Go-by Even After
an Appropriation.
What the government intends te do
about lhe erection of a gaol here appears shrouded in very black clouds,
and no .daylight breaking anywhere
through' them. We are advised a sum
of7 SSOO,' and not a very large one in all
conscience, was placed in the estimates for the purpose, last session,
which under ordinary circumstances
should have given us the building long
ere this, but a hammer has not been
struck on it yet. It is true the town is
likely soon to be incorporated, but this
is no reason it should not be something like fairly treated for its contributions to the treasury in the past and
pressnt. So far thc place sends to
Victoria some S-1,000 a year in hotel
licenses probably $1,000 more in miscellaneous licenses, a large sum , in
police collections, a heavy land tax,
and so- far it has not had, all told,
$1,000 of Local government money
spcNtonit. Now in all eense of fair
play, it is time we, at least, got a goal
and a Record office. Come.gentlemen,
do not let timidity; or the belief that
the place is able to take care of itself,
stand in the way of doing us some
measure of justice.
It is true Sandon does not send a
supporter of the governnient to the
House ; but if we only had a redistribution of scats thi.t would give us a
member, and justice in thc expenditure of public money, there is no telling what the place might do. Withholding representation and justice in
public works is no way to capture a
people's best consideration.
ormulate. my charges and forward
them to the Gold Commissioner for investigation. As it was my letters to
different departments of the government criticising the. action of their
agent, were piled together and designated charges! I had no copies of
these and could ��� not be expected to
keep them in memory for months.
3. I,should have had some days'
notice of when this investigation
would: take place, so that witnesses
could have been procured.
I had stated that Sproat was injuring
my business by advising people during
office hours to go to others to have
their work done. To prove this in the
absence of witnesses T produced a letter .written me by Sproat in which he
undertook to, tell me how to write put
blank forms. The letter was badly
spelled and liad. no form to it; but he
had the gall to tell me to "Make them
out as others do, as I do myself."
That:is pretty good, "as I do myself."
Big Indian me! I argue that this
showed what he would feed the people
on, viz., that I did not understand my
business. Dennis refused, to admit the
letter, stating that, he did not consider
it had anything to do with the case.
;The only excuse for such a letter would
be tliat he had gone out of his way to
befriend the public; but who would
believe that when it is known that he
holds interests in different mining
properties, and that he sometimes goes
out to restake mineral claims himself?
1 imagine he would be one of the first
to jump a property if he saw an opening. Thanking you for the space, Mr.
Editor, I am

struction, is quoted as saying :
"I am sorry to see   the  newspapers
taking up the matter and printing such
scurrilous articles. lam prepared at any
and ail times to state the real facts   in
any case of complaint, either  by mail
or by wire., The facts are that certain
men came the east whose fare had been
advanced by the   company   and   they
weregiven  to   understand   that' they
must, and agreed to, repay   this   fare.
In fact, they signed contracts   to  this
effect.   A few endeavored to evade this
payment and in  consequence  of  this
there has been trouble. ' They also endeavored to create dissatisfaction, and
you have  seen   the   statements   ��Ka.t
have been published.   In regard to the
other complaints. I do uot  see   where
they come in.   The men have the best
of board, and they receive 100 cents on
the dollar for their wages.   Each   man
is charged 50 cents per month for medical fees, which is  the least   amount I
ever heard of any   company charging.
We allow liotime   check   scalpers,, on
the line, and  the men   are .paid   the
wages they were hired.for before   they
left the east.   They   were   hired   with
the understanding tliat  they  were   to
do any  class   of   work   the   company
wanted done.   I am not hard   on ' the
men, and I always do as 1 agree to   do.
I.have a long record  on   large   works
and I have  employed   a   great   many
men in my time, and have always lived
up to an)\agreement I have made.   On
the other hand I expect the   rneri   to
carry out thir part   of  agreement  br_
contract, and. have insisted   upon   it
There are now  'about 4.000 men   employed on the line between Movie lake
and McLeod and   we  expect   to   have
the track down   to   the". head   of  the
Kootenay lake by November   of   next
year, which will be ahead of the   contract time.   The work   is' progressing
satisfactorily and I look for  no   drawbacks of any kind."

Excelsior.
A youth starts forth, of tender years���
From home and friends and comrades
dear, '
To visit climes of ice and snow.
Where is he now ?   I do net know.���
Excelsior.
And yet amid the snow and ice
He bravely with his strange device
Climb's icy peaks, and wintry trail
Bright gold to find without avaiJ.���
Fxcelsior.
And yet to youth hope's always bright,
As onward trudges this brave knight.
The lofty peak is reached at last,
He cares not   now   and   plants   his
staff-
Excelsior.
But why recall so sad a talc ;
No more his friends will hear his hail
iS'or clarion voice-Nor grasp his hand���
The youth has gone to join a band
Where Klondyke gold is   naught   but
sand.���

IS THE CROW'S NEST.
Workmen are Well Treated,   Says
gineer M. J. Haney.
En-
Some time ago a statement was published which purported to come from
a workmen who had just returned from
the Crow's Nest, in which the methods
of the C. P. R. in connection with the
building ef the road in the pass were
exposed. In reply to the statement referred to M. J. Haney, manager of con-
The Chapleau at Slocan City is now
a shipper.
The Republic mine on Robinson
crsek now has six men at work.
There are now five men at work On
the Omega near the Selkirk, drifting
with hope of striking the main lead at
ah early day.     '..",''-..', .-.>..';.���.":���. .
, The Bolander mine has recently,
made a strike of mare than usual importance. This mine is owned by
Ohio parties. A crown grant has been
secured, and the quality of the ore
turned out is causing the mine to be
considered a very valuable property.
Mr. Strangham was down from the
Ajax mine on Tuesday, and reports ra
valuable new strike in that promising
property. Some two weeks since they
found a new lead and have driven in a
tunnel some 45 fset. The new , lead
is'three feet in width with a nice seam
of metal sand witched in between two
layers of carbonates. Tbe metal is
rich, and the appearance of carbonates
on either side renders the stoping
much easier and more valuable.
The Enterprise mine has opened up
again after the owners have adjusted
their personal differences. There are
at present 10 men,at work, and development will be pushed making the mine
a steady shipper.
The Sovereign mine has ten men at
work. The ore is improving and development is going ahead steadily.
The Star and the Ruth mines have
both struck large rich leads of ore on
their lower tunnels���in fact better ore
than they have ever had in these remunerative properties. The Star's
strike is 750 feet from the surface on a
length of 1,000 feet of tunnel, and the
Ruth's find is under very similar circumstances. These finds go to show
mineral is here at any depth and improving in quality with descent.
Rawhiding has now set in. On Thursday the Reco sent up four horses, to
haul to the K. and S. at the trail crossing. This mine will largely increase
shipments this winter.

CAN'T VOU SLEET?
' Sleeplessness is one of the most frequent symptows of heart and nerve
troubles. It affects all classes and all
ages. Milburn's Heart and Kerve Pills
restore the nerves to healthy action
and regulate the heart. Mr. Miles
Boone, Fredericton, X. B., tells how
they work. 'T could never rest well,
and oft-m woke up with a start, and
then sleep left me for the night. The*c
pills gave me almost immediate relief,
giving me healthful, refreshing sleep,
and I am now strong and well."
Sandon Ore Shipments.
A Fratricidal Qnarrel.
Word comes from Seaforth, Ont., of
an awful tragedy that happened at
Bayfield a few days ago, a man meeting his death at the hands of his
brother. Harvey and. Frank Elliott
ran the Albion hotel there for their
mother. Yesterday Harvey Elliott
went to Varna, a small village a few
miles east of Bayfield, and returned in
the evening, under the influence of
liquor. It is not known exactly how
the affair happened, but it is hinted
that there was a quarrel between the
brothers. At any rate Harvey was
shot dead by his brother Frank. The
murderer has been placed under arreist,
and an inquest will be held.

Pkr Yeah  1 ��������� Stiuctia'''fn Advance.'  are 'employed to keep offenders out,  while others are engaged in keeping  them in. And thtii it goes to the end  of the chapter.  TIME TO ACT.  ,:     -.'  To any one  who' takes   the trouble  to'look into   the financial situation   of  , this province, it must be apparent, it is  high time  some changes. Of a   radical  character. were made in : the management ,of'things in this province'.    The  most prominent of the Liberal papers,  though   the  . present' government   is  nominally Conservative,   are  opposed  to placing "the present leaders ,of the  opposition in responsibility, alleging .it  would   only   result   in  rendering "the  last   condition worse than   the  first."  Even though, it .should prove the case,  though, there   is. no proof  of  the soft  impeachment,   it  is no   argument for  continuing things as   they  are. .'.'Because one judge gives bad judgement,  or because an applicant, for a; judgeship -is'known;���������not supposed to be���������  unfit for the trust is, no reason incompetent men should be retained in harness.    Let known .wrong be ever, and  always combatted,   and   a change for  ,.the better will'eventually come. , We  venture the opinion that if the present  opposition leaders 'were doubly as in-  compenteiit as they are;.if /.they were,  only Liberals,' and had .a good, chance  for success.at the, polls, .they would be  taken up   by the' Liberal 'papers .thai:  are now throwing stones in their pathway.    As party politics  are a  matter  of no consequence to us, we speak on  '   the broad ground of public interests.  What  we   have   to   say   is, that  the  present debt of the; province   and  the  unstable   character of the fe\v:'unimportant assets we .have   to show for it,  are   simply appalling.    With the  late  loan of two and.a half-millions voted,  we have a gross debt of nine millions,  or at least sixty dollars per head oi.our  population, and assets there..would'be  serious difficulty   in   getting   $io'per  head for.    As   we have said   in   previous issues,   the present  government  are  not   lo blame   for  all this  as the'  liability has been piling up for the dast  25 years ;   but  they are,.to blame",for,  late loans,   for not making -a vigorous  eflort to reduce the rate of- interest on  indebtedness,     and   ..handling ,. more  carefully the   annual   receipts  ofthe  country.  With these properly managed  they   are ample   to sensibly  diminish,  through   sinking     fund   investments,  much of   our  present  heavy interest  bearing debt.      It may   be   that   the  . present opposition have not sufficiently  mastered   a   scheme for the accomplishment of these ends, but it is   none  the less a fact,   the present  and   past  rampant looseness  and   extravagance  should be brought to -a close.- -   ' .��������� ;   ' -  As an asset  the indebtedness of the  Nakusp and Slocan railroad.of $647,-  072   is figuring   prominently   as valuable .;'.'.,   but  how  payment is   going  to be   got   is    on   very  questionable  conditions.     The N. & S.  is but.,43  miles long, and could be built tor less  money.     As payment   the government  is   to get 40   per cent, of,the;.gross  earnings,   but  all   of  the   latter   are  classed on the  long haul basis, so that  even their actual value is   heavily discounted.    But it is not alone on   the  'provincial liability'score  that the government  is   lamentably weak., it is on  their everyday doings as well;    '7  We have a representation of 33  members, or about one to ev.-ry 4,500  population, yet the city of Victoria  with its 15,000 people, hasfive representatives, and Mr. Hume, of Nelson,  has at least 20,000 in his constituency,  and no prospect of a reasonable-  change under redistribution. No  doubt the Vancouver World considers  this all right, because it is opposed to  an opposition led by Conservative  members.  We find a gaol at Nanaimo, with its  4,000 people, and nine officials drawing $7,140 a year, while Sandon with  its population of 4,000 in town and  surroundings cannot get even a  Record office or a lock-up causing the  cost of the latter to be spent annually  in transporting offenders to the gaol at  Kamloops.  We find'$11,500 a year paid to tlie  speaker of the - House, when other  provinces, with infinitely less debt,  pay but One-third of that amount, and  $700 paid to the first sessional clerk  that would be regarded as a fair yearly salary in other provinces. In Victoria the gaol has three gaolers and  three convict guards, and what they  all do for their money must be a  mystery to those acquainted with the  nature of these institutions in other  provinces,    it may be  some of them  ,.,. Th their eagerness to, make up a  favorable', slate,, thc present'government classes an expenditure of $386  on gold specimens at the World's :Fair  Chicago, in. their'list of assets. We  wouldiike to know how the money is  going- to be , realized out of it, -"and  placed in the treasury.' Oii the same  basis a' merchant; in difficulties could  inchide the, money he, spent in advertising while in business, in hiv assets',  but w.- are confident :,.his creditors  ; would pay but little'attention to it. '��������� In  the assets there 'is another item ,of  $15,415 due -, by,' farmers for seed  grain. aheiit the Eraser river flood. If  this province collects as.wdl, as other-  provinces do .on..loans7 for : the, same  purpose, the item  on $; but no more  ftRKNSflS JMMIGRflNTS.

The deposits of iron ore in .New   Jer-  80} are suflicient fo supply the needs ol  thc United States for half a conturj ,but  until Thos A  Edison undertook  eight  years ago lo sohc the problem ol  how  to get the non m< out   01   the   mountains of lock it was practically ol litlle  use.   Anybody can   take   a   piece   of  magnetit, puherize it with a hammer,  the nhold a magnet ovci it   and   draw  up from it little black particles which  are iron ore. leaving  the   sand   undisturbed.   But to be ol pi.ictical   seiwce  it was necessan to do tins on   a   scale  as'colossal as the phenomena of nature  Edison   has    constructed     maclunen  which will leduce ten tons of   rock   to  dust evcij minute     lie  has  limmled  apparatuses \\hercb\ the   p.uticles   of  iron ore are separated lrom  this  elust,  and altei six month* of   almost   hopc-  less experimenting he bus been able to  compicss   this   dust   into    biiquettes  ������vInch are thoroughly   porous   and   at  the same time  'tbsolnttlj   watei) rool  The deposits of magnetito,   though   ol  low grulo,   are   enormous      In   .'j,000  acres   immediately   suiroundintr    the  Edjson millfe   thete   .\ro   over  200,000  tons oi low grade oic, and Edi.scn o\\ ns  JG,000 acres in whicli   the   deposit   is  proportionately     as   Luge.

Some showed him on papet that  no   machine   could     be    constuicted  powerful enough to ciusb  successfully  fne, six or seven ton locks ,   oi il such  n machine could he   constructed   tint  it would nevei   withstand  tho   tmihc  jif that would result     This  particular  difficulty has been suimountcd so completely thit 100-horsc-powei lsicquned  to reduce rocks weighing six  to seven  tons to chibt in less than thice   seconds  from the time   thoy  aie   thrown   into  the ciushing machine    Edison is now  doing on a gigantic scale pist wh it   he  did at first with a hammer and i  shoe-  magnet,    lie  is  ciushing   locks   and  then chopping   the   lesulting   powdei  past  powerful   electro magnets      The  sand is not effected b\, the   magnetism  and goes stnught on while the lion ore  is attiacted to one side and   lills  in   a  heap ol Us own     Tt maj    suiprise   the  pnpeiheial onsen ci of the great  eaish  jug pi.iiit to le mi th it the  Coiliss  on  gine which runs at a bi^h rate ol ^petcl  ttkeo no pait vvhitcvei in the crushing  process     There is something ol a trick  in it, but it is an  ellective    inswi l   to  the engtneeis  who   deelaicel   th it,   no  machine could be made strong enough  'o stand the   stnui   ot   ciushing   the  ^reat boulders     It is  the   momentum  of tlie 70 tons ot   metal   contained   in  the moymg p irts ol the rolls at a   vcrv  high rate ol speed     It a rock drops   in  between the rolls so as to in * an^   wav  impede  their piogiess    a   clutch   bv  which tne rolls are < onneeted to thc engine allows tbe lattei to let go its bold.

Again, the rocic is drop-  peel oyer ten leet into the pit before  it  strikes the rolls, and the. impact on the  rapidly   moving   roll   is   often   great  enough to break thc   boulder   in   two.

A trail is being built to the Kilo at  Lemon Creek.   :       ,  Rossland and Nelson ; are now connected by telephone.  An Italian named Romano has victimized several at Slocan City with  bogus bills.  HansHohensee had a leg broken at  the Kilo mine near 'Siocau City, the  other day.

It  wiis quoted yesterday at $3.50, but silver was a little better at 57i.  It is said that the Ibex mine is to be  sold by the Sheriff in a short time to  satisfy some $9,000 of judgements.  It is feared that Thomas Bradley, of  Slocan City, is lost in the mount tins  and rhat the worst has befallen him.  John Johnson proprietor of tho Silver King hotel, Nelson, is dead. He  was one of the pioneers of the country.  The Rev. Father Patrols (R. C), of  Nelson, held service in Virginia hall,  .'Wednesday morning last, at 9 o'clock.  Lawyer Grimmett being unable to  write'made his maik^ oiv Tuesday  morning. A slip on thesidewalk, however, wai the occasion of the:figure.  : Rossland:: has a debt of 3100,000,  which is not a baelshowing for a place  four years old., Keeping on at'this  pace for 50 years, the place will be  pretty well blistered. ,  ,:: The hydrants for ;..,: e new .waterworks system have arrived and will  soon,be "placed iu position, giving'the  townall the electriclight and fire protection it could hope for. '  ��������� Jack Frost may send a scarcity of  ice to our new curling rink this winter;  but the god of water will send a del-  ,   uge of Adam's ale as.sooh-as' the fresh-  7   ets set in in the/spring.  It is said the7 Bank of B.N. A., who  are creditors to thc> extent of some  $35,000, and other creditors are moving  to appoint a liquidator for the Noble  Five mine. It is a well-equipped institution and ought to have done better.  ��������� It would be a wise precaution if  those who intend to climb the steps to  the Methodist church all winter would  take out accident policies. It might  be toturh on the eompanies.but it will  be joy to some of the individuals..:,;-  Squire LovattJ is'vowing .vengeance;  tempered with'mefcy, on those steps at  the corner cof the skating rink. ������������������ A  tumble there on Monday gave him; a  ve>rv sore arm. It will be a surprise il  theaecidents ofthe winter end with"  this arm.

It is generally conceded  that "long arm heating'' does hot do  the most effectual work, but.in this  case the operation is simply perfect.

Miss Bemis, wha has been taking a  course in a Chicago college, arrived  in: town Sunday to reside with her  mother, Mrs; Lyons.,  F. Darling, of the Canadian General'  Electric Co., wit'i headquarters at Nelson, was in town this week looking up  business.,,. ���������-.,,.       ���������    - ;   ,  Mr. Geo. Wharton, of Spokane, who  is interested in the Reco, was here for  a few days and returned home yesterday well pleased with the'work at this  celebrated mine. . ,,    '''  Mr E. J. Field, of the Wonderful  mine, has recently returned from Spokane; but so/fax is not prepared to "say  much aV to the .future operations 'on.  this���������in many respects���������wonderful  property.,     . .   ;, ���������..-��������� r -.  The entertainment given by the Fra-  zer Dramatic company on , Saturday  evening drew one of the largest houses  ever held in town. Rose Garland is  not a difficult play, but received a  treatment in the hands of this company  that gave it special interest. Mri.  Frazer himself bore out hia excellent  reputation as an artist, and his support  was well up to the mark. The house  earned about $225, and netted a handsome figure for the fire brigade.  .-"������������������Messrs.'Bartlett Bros., who have been  in th. packing, business here and very  successfully for , a length of time, are  closing up here to engage in the same  line on the Klondj ke route in.' the  spring. They say there is but one  practical route to the Klondyke and  that is via :Fort Wrangle, Telegraph  Creek and Teslin, and they are going  to locate on it with 200 head oi mules.  The pablic will only hope they may  meet with a full measure of success in  their new venture; but, of course, like  everything else it has to be tried.  On Tuesday night a number of the  boys connected with the Methodist  church made "n bee" and hauled down  from the hills, by clothesline cable, a  number of logs and cut them into firewood for the pleasure ofthe parson.  All told they must have cut over a  cord, but one would have thought from  the war whoops that filled the air in  that neighborhood from 8 to 11 that  the pile should have been considerably  larger. As it is, however, there is no  one disposed to demur. "The boys"  on assembling at the parsonage, were  treated  cake and coffee.  ; Slocan City is going to have   a   new  record office and jail   and  this   is   the  kind of justice tho Turner government  is disposed to dole out  to  tlie   Slocan.  We are not disposed to find fault  with  the government for giving these buildings to that town, especially   the jail,  for from the war waging  between  the  two local papers, we take it such an institution is. required   there,   but   our  ground for fault finding is at   the  way  in which this town is slighted.     Then;  is more mining   and there, pare   more  mining entries of a bonafide! character  in and around Sandon then there are in  the whole of the rest of   the country  combined, and still no sign of a record  office; and if jails are established   as  a  result of residence of industrial population no one will question the   claims  to preferment of Sandon.     We   would  just as soon support the Turner government as any other administration_; but  when they are sojopposed to yielding a  modicum of justice to   our   town   and  surroundings a sense of fair play  compels us to look for   men   in   authority  who   will   measure  the  requirements  of the country impartially.
