The following article though brief,is
more eloquent than many ten times its
length, in the story that it tells: It
represents hours of labor spent in digging out tlie facts from official records.
It shows at almost the glance of tho
eye the remarkable growth of the ore
shipni' nts through Knslo in the last
three years and tells the talc of mining
development in the Slocan and Ainsworth camps simply, clearly and convincingly While it does all this, still
it docs not tell tlie whole story for it
takes no account tif those mines that
shipped via tho Nakusp & Slocan railway clearing at Revelstoke. This list
would include prominent divident payers like tlie Idaho and Monitor near
Three Porks. Thc records show 14
shipping mines for 1805, 39 for IS9G
and 53 for 1S97,
This then, is a " comparative statement of ore shipped from parts of the
Slocan and Ainsworth mining districts,
passing through the custom house at
Kaslo for the five recorded months ..of
thc year 1895, all of 1896 and the first
nine months of the vear 1897:
f fession.
The solos of Mrs. Harry Watson
were all excellent. A favorite with
Victoria audiences, this lady can always count upon .1 hearty welcome,
but it is doubtful whether her voice
has ever been hoard to better advantage. Her rendition of Donizetti's '*0
luce de quest anima" was finished <*uid.
gave hor an opportunity to prove the
'wonderful range at her oonnnancl.
Thero remains one other performer
wo thy of mention. A phenomenal
juvenile who simply captured his audi-
cr.c" with "Comicalities," it, Master
"Sammy" Johnson. Such precocity,
such marvellous sill'-podsession. such
appreciation of thc humor he tries to
convey to his hearers is seldom seen.
To say that bis contribution was all too
short is to express the opinion of nme-
tentn�� of tbe audience, and if nothing
else last evening betray ed V lYs Mar-
rack's possession of good judgement as
an entertainer, her inclusion of iittlo
Sammy'' portrayal of the negro ""comedian would be. suilieient of itself.

Victoria Audience.
The following from, the Victoria Colonist has reference to the concert
company that will appear here Oct. 13,
14 and 15 in Spencer's Hall:
"It has often been said that Victoria
does not possess a good instructor in
vocal music, but the concert given last
evening in Institute hall under thc
patronage of the Lieutenant-Governor
and Mr.-,. Dewdney nitiHt havo convinced those who had the gp��d fortune
to be presen,' that Miss Marrack possesses those qualities which are characteristic of the. successful teacher. Of
Miss Marriok's singing it would be
superfluous to say anything. A finished artiste, possessed of a phenomenal contralto voice, her rendering of
the only solo given by hei* during the
evening, and for which she selected
the ever popular "Annie Laurie," won
the hearts of her hearers. In her duet
with Mrs. Harry Watson, Miss Mar-
rack's voice was heard to even better
advantage, and coupled with the evidences of her ability as a teacher, presented by'.'those who -have received
their vocal training under her tuition,
and who took part in the , eonccrt,
proves beyond doubt that thc lady has:
thu necessary qualifications to place
her in the very front rank of her pro-
g-|\Vork;on the Fidelity, it is reported,
will be resumed on Wednesday next.

Victoria, B.C., Nov, 1���The full court
to-day delivered judgement in the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway company
versus Parker et al case, dismissing the
defendants' cross appeal in the action.
An injunction order had been granted
restraining the defendants from in any
way dealing   with  certain portions  of
the Quartz Creek townsite and agninst
this  they appealed,  but  their appeal
now stands dismissed.     The  railway
company has obtained the cronn grant
and. their action  for trespass  against
thu plaintiffs  will now go on,   the defendants in   the  meantime   being restrained from in any way dealing with
the land.    The   chief justice   111  liis
judgement thus refened to an ''ncident
in tho case:   '-'It'is   much   to   be  regretted  that ono of the   parties to  the
action, or his too anxious friends, have
not observed   the propriety  of maintaining silence, at least from comment,
whilst the ciase was sub j tidier*, bin on
the contrary , have printed in thc newspapers   what  purports  to  be   the  de-
fendunts's argument upon this appeal,
embellished with prominent head lines
and  have sent  copies   to tho judges.
Such   action is a   gross   contempt of
court, and may, if repeateu!, be fitting
ly dealt with.

the past'six years   at the old Ogden
iron mines aYew-miles-from Dover, N.
J., where he has. built up a:plant covering   several   acres   of  ground,   and
which after many experiments, is now
capable of producing daily  from 1JO0O
to 1^500 tops of almost chemicallj'piire
iron.7 The ore worked contains on the
average about 25. per cent, of iron.   Mr.

ately     surrounding   his   plant,   from
which can be produced 50,000,000 tons
of iroii.   His process, in brief, consists
of blasting the ore from the mountain
sides   and   then   by  means   of steam
shovels and miniature cars conveying
it   to  massive crushers   where   it   is
broken up antVpassed on to other mills
where it is  pulverized.'. Tbe powder
is then allowed to fall in close proximity  to electro-magnets which deflect
the   iron   to one side   and   the   non-
metallic'matter falls to the other side
by gravity.   From   the time the ore is
blasted until it is resolved into this
metallic form" and compressed to brin-
quettes for shipment the'process is entirely automatic.

For the  purpose    of   Organization    and
Looking after the Voters' Lists.
Messrs. Semlin and Hume, M. P. P's.
and members of the opposition in the
House were in town the past few days
looking after organization,for the completionof voters' lists -feci'. Their chief
objection to the government is its bad
financial policy and of a fact the finances of the province have ' been most
wretchedly managed. With the late
loan of ,52,500,000, there is a mortgage
debt of nearly nine millions on a population of 150,000 or $60 a head piled up
in about 26 years. Wc repeat such
debt piling is simply scandalous. Add-
to this the S50 per caput of Dominion
debt, the'municipal'and mortgage liability of individuals, and we have the
people of British Columbia���every
man, woman an child owing over $200,
and very little to show for it.

Smith's Cove, N. S.
The outlook for a busy season among
the mines of Silverton becomes more
encouraging each week, as men are being put to worK on properties that
have been idle all summer, and their
starting up at the present time is a
welcome surprise. It is claimed by
the conservative ones that there will
be fully 200 men employed in the
camp during the,winter, which will
give a pay roll of about $700 .per day,
making a grand total of over ��20,000
per month which will be paid in wages.
This alone will make Silverton the
most lively business point on the Slocan lake, but there are some of our
mining men who think this estimate
altogether too small. At the present
time thc Thompson is employing. 30
men, the Vancouver 50 in the mine
and on the road, the Galena Mines between 20 and 30, the Lora Boone 4,
Lakeyiew 4, Silver Nugget 7, Cascade 4,
Frisco 4, and wh^n the Wakefield resumes operations next muiith between
30 and 40 men will be employed. While
it is hard to say ns to the numbrr
which will be given employment at
the Fidelity, it is safe to say hot less
than 10 or 15 will be kept steadily at
work, and there is a probability of
double that number being employed.
There are also deals being quietly
worked, which if consummated, will
result in active work on several other
properties, and will largely increase
the number of men employed.
With this bright future for the winter, Silverton is bound to prosper and
her population will rapidly increase.���

As ' is   universally- coiiceeded   by  ���������- statesmen, the   principal measure of a  government's merits or demerits  is its  financial statement.    Policies   on  this  or that question, when applied to central governments,   are all   important,  ,.'. but,, never;of, as much moment  as its  ��������� financial management;   and   the comparisonis.of infinitely ' more   moment  when applied   to  Provincial ��������� administrations..    In fact  the    financial management of a provincial government is  its real measure of  wortli.  .The province   has at this moment a  .:   gross debt of,$6,..(.46,768,   with assets  of $2,381,477, or a   net debt of $4,-  ', 088,76s,    which     shows   some   veiy  /.wretched financing   in the past.7   Rel-  ,   atively speaking, the province has" but  a handful of people, "and for them to  '  be saddled   with a debt of such m:ig-;  , nitude is a   very scriousi matter,    it is  7 true������   the, population    and : revenue  '  enue resources of. the country .will in-  ;.crease,.';but  the' history of   provincial  management in Canada goes, to prove  ' that liabilities always gro'w-as resources  improve;  the one appears to be con-'  .tingent on the other: .  But we   have notyet presented ' the  gravest feature of our  provincial situation���������our assets have to be consider-.  ' ably discounted.    About one-third  of  the amount, $647,072,   is, a mortgage  on   the   Nakusp, and'Slocan   railway,  which may or may not. be all paid up  in, time. ,$583,021 is the capital.credit  of the province given it by the Dominion at  Confederation, and   on 'which  we draw annually nearly:$3'o, 000.  To  consume this   for the   liquidation of a  liability   would be like killing   the hen  that lays  the.golden egg.     To' use   it  , would be   to cripple  our resources   in  the future.      Some $14,000. more   is  ' made up of debts due   by individuals,  which may or may not be valuable.     -  '���������.'��������� Of course there is now just as much  virtue   in brooding over  spilt milk   as  ���������there is in talking over our debt.   Now  ��������� it is this, and .the only thing  that can  be done by the  wisest   of' statesman-  ������������������; ship, is to reduce our.interest   by subsequent   debentures     properly    sold.  There is no reason   why;the' province  , should   pay more  than   3^  per cent.  on its debt,   and doubtless   if our debentures   were properly handled   they  could   be   reduced   to   an aggregate  bearing that rate only.  Taking the  high expenses of living  into account, there are   but few over-  ��������� paid officials in the country, but there  are some, and   others   whose services  might well be dispensed with.  There does not, for instance, appear to be a necessity for paying Hon.  .-G...B. Martin, $4,000 a,year as Commissioner of Lands, for as. good men  as he is can be got for $1,500 to $2,-  000 less. Even $4,000. a year ap-  ���������' pears a large salary for the ministers  themselves, when, they are provided  with deputies at from $2,200 to $2,7  400 a year. There is the greatest  necessity' for simplifying our form of  government, that less than $290,267 a  year will do to cover salaries in connection with'civil government and the  administration of justice.  The transfer of.prisoners to' the  gaols is another heavy item, that might  easily be dispensed with. . If an ordinary drunk at a distant point such as  Sandon, for instance, cannot pay a  fine   that  may   be  imposed,    and the  ''Montreal,   for what he said   in his re  cent trip'through  the  Kootenay coun  tiy against the establishment of a mint  in Canada,  and the increase of' silver  coin, and very properly so.

Of course there  is a,greater circulation-of paper money  than this,  but ,it''should   not  be' naturally greater, if, the laws ;of the country,, as regards banking'   were,  rigidly  carried out.   . Bank bills  are   but the  pro, notes   of banks,   and   the , latter  allege  they could put up gold ��������� at any  time  for their  redemption,,  which'the'  history of banking,   even ,,in Canada','  where banks arc supposed to,'be' especially stable, shows that such  is not the  case;   as several   banks   have   failed,  and' no   one oPtheirYcver  redeemed  its paper in full,' even their   securities  with' the,government' were insufficient  by-'considerable   to   meet .liabilities;'-  There is not a   progressive man in the  country to-day who is not wound up" in  the banking system   iii. some ..way,- that  will say Canada  has,-money enough to  develop i,ts;,resource's.    Then to  meet  public'requirements   it, should be .increased, and if gold   cannot be found  sufficient to support' tlie increase,   the  only alternative is; to accept silver,' the  next availablesubstitute.'    It is not so  muclv'the question.whether  the. ratio  shall be ,..i5>-< or 16 to t   so long  as  some   reasonable,   .relative   value    is  adopted and-established.

San Francisco,   Cal.,   Oct.   29���������The  Kid won the fight.   On no similar occasion has such a crowd  assembled in  Mechanics'   Pavilion   as   that   which  poured into the big building   to-night  to witness the   Lavigne-Walcott  fight.  Betting on the fight had  been  brisk  all day.     Thousands of  dollars   were  poured into the   pool rooms   to-night,  thc great bulk of which was placed on  Lavigne.   Two days ago Walcott was  the favorite with some bets  at  ten   to  eight.   At S o'clock to-night pools were  selling at six and a half, will? Lavigne  the favorite.    While the evening's pre-  grant was  late in   opening,   the   prc-  Jirrjinaries between local   boxers   weie  curtailed, and at 9.50 Joe Walcott step  ped into the ring -wrapped  in   a   long  grey bath robe.   He was   followed   by  Tom O'Kourke,   George   Dickson   and  Joe Cotton.    Walcott was  warmly  applauded, but it wiir, discounted by   the  roar of applause which greeted George  Lavigne aa he followed the  negro  into  the ring.   Lavigne's seconds  wen1  his  brother, Billy Lavigne, Tom Grath and  Billy Armstrong.  iVJieji Lavigne and Walcott dropped  their robes, their splendid condition  was apparent. The gong sounded at  9.55. Both men came to the centre  and sparred- Lavigne led first with  }u's right and clinched., Lavigne  caught Walcott, on the head with n left  hand and a moment later got in a good  left on tlie body. Wnkott stopped an-  oihej.* rush with a good stiff left on tho  face. Lnyigne forced thc fighting and  Janded both right and left on the ja<\,  staggering thc negro, who repeatedly  clinched to avoid the terrifiic rushes  from Lavigne. The gong sounded during a hot-mix-up in front of tho ring,  In which the white man had all t p  best of it, drawing blood from Walcott'-.  nose.  iu the second round Lavigne rushed  Walcott into a corner and tried- with  his right^but-was stopped by a stiff  left on thc- face. Lavigne hail the  better ofthe round, doing all thc forcing. The pace during the first four  rounds was terrific. In the third round  Lavigne missed a left and right for thc  face and clinched. A moment later  he put in two on the face and clinched.  The Kid put in two bad rights on thc  body in succession and got a hard left  on thc face. Layigne rushed, but Joe  ducked and George went over his head.  Lavigne forced Walcott around the  ring, but the latter did some fast work.  In the lourth round Lavigne opened  Up hostilities with a right hook, but  was neatly stopped by a right. The  Kid put a straight left on Walcott's  nose, and rushed him to the ropes and  landed on his noi������c again. Walcott  smiled and toen forced the pace and  land a left on the head, 'but Lavigne  rushed him to thc post, and Walcott  slipped to thefloor. Walcott made a  better showing in this round. From  the fifth to the twelveth and last  Lavigne had things about all his own  way. ��������� >���������   ,        : ,''  ' Walcott was not anxious to leave  his cornor for the twelfth,and asked for  a, draw, but the Kid rushed at him like  a tiger. Upon finding that he had to  fight, Joe did it with, a will, but La-  vign- landed a hot one under the heart,  which sobered Walcott. Lavigne rushed Joe to the ropes and led frequently  without return, Joe being apparently  unable either to ward off the blows or  return   them. .,..���������������.'.''���������  7 He again limped to. his corner and  a few seconds later O'Jtouyke , called  Referee Craney over arid said his man  could go no further. A scene of indescribable confusion ensued upon tbe  referee announcing that the Saginaw,  Kid was a winner.. Walcott had to be  carried out of the ring, while Lavigne  jumped through the ropes and followed  pis seconds to the dressing-room.  little doubt thai our trade can be largely extendeu if we will only   make;, an  effort   to   cultivate it.   Among the articles that might be largely exported by  Canada may be mentioned flour, grain>  hay, canned goods, cheese, butter,; lard,  hams,   bacon,   oil   and   paints.  .  The  C.P;R.state that they-,aro   giving, the  same export rates to  the port   of   St,  John'as are   current   from   the. same  shipping points tb New York.     As far  as freight rates are  concerned,   therefore/the Canadian   manufacturer has  exactly the' same .advantage   as   his  rival in the.United, States,-'    Some 'of  the islands have a 'considerable"; nopu  lation. /Trinidad, for instance, , is   reported as having 245,000 nnd,Barbados  180,000. British Guiana, statistics as to  which are also giyen.in the hand book,  has a populatioii'of 278,000.:   The other  islands, above referred to have a   population varying' Iron, 12,000 to 00,000  Cariboo Creek. District is, in ,Need  of Traiispotatiou.        ������������������'.;  other day on his waj east.      The   balance of" the party remained  in   Winnipeg.   "The  aspect, of things  in ' the  Kootenay country   indicate    a   bright  future,"     remarked   the    ex-Premier,  speaking-of his observation^ in British  Columbia, "and the conditions in   the  coast cities were of  a   character   that  showed a remarkable revival  of trade.  There-is no doubt ./but   the "Klondyke  boom is a factor in  the" improvement  noticeable in   British   Columbia,   and  everybody is speaking of. and   preparing for a great   rush,  in   the , spring."  Sir Mackenzie Bowell!i.was   much'  impressed with the development in   the  silver district around.Slocan  City  and  also the gold  regions,   ana   while   individuals; wertv inaking  towards   the  Yukon capitalists .were more interested  in the quartz 'mining   regions 'of   the  Pacific Province.   The7 trip  has   been  of great benefit to thf.-e^-fremier, who'  is enjoying the best of health and ia in  excellent spirits..'.'  FAIRLY STAGGARD.  Mr. Samuel Humphries, retired carriage manufacturer, Strathroy, Ont.,  says: "For a long time I have hud  kidney troubles and pain in the back.  I could not straighten .tip and often had  to sit down until the pam and weakness went away. I have taken one  box of Doan's Kidney Pills and must  say they area great kidney medicine,  because thoy have entirely removed  all pain from my back, 'curing the  urinary difficulties and benefitting my  general health in a remarkable degree."  A number of Rosslanclers are interested in the minos of tho Cariboo Creek  District, and among them arfi R. J.  Bealey.Dr. Edwird Bowes, Edward C.  Finch and Mr. Johnson. The district  is coming to the front rapidly, and as  soon as better transportation facilities  are secured, it will take rank with  some of the best mining .sections' in  the Kootenay country/ i'������������������  ���������Edward C. Finch, wbo, has  just "arrived back from a visit to the   district,  is enthusiastic   in; his   praise/of   its  merits.   "On the properties of the   Silver Rucen company," ho   said,   "there  is considerable work in progrrss.    Preparation?       under way there to continue the        ^*dl   winter.     Quarters  are being    rected   to accommodate 16  men, which is about/the force that  /we  intend to keep at work during thc winter.   We are now contracting   for   the  necessary ..'supplies' forthe men  during  the coming cold weather/ In tlie meanwhile a force is kept at   work developing the   properties'  of   the   company,  which are eight in  number.     I   must  say that they were never in better condition'than thoy .'ire   at  present.   . A  crown gfaiT f naif been earned: nnd soon  will be issued   for   properties   ol'.^the  company.       In   the   window   of ' the  com pan}*, next door to the Mineroffice^  there may be soeii 1,000-potinds of / the  ore from tjie Silver Queen.   Hon. Geo.  B. Foster/president  of the   company,  writes me in the spring, when   it  may  be expedient to erect a smelter, that it  will be easy to  raise   the   money   for  that -purpose..-    He lias   sold   a   large  block, of the stock among  his   friends,  and they stand ready to take more;   as  he has assured them of tlie   merits   of  tho mine.  "Among the claims that have recently been bondpd in the district is the  Promistnra. James Brady, of the firm  of Brady & Moynahan, has a 820,000  bond on this property, and the bond is  in the interest of a syndicate of Rossland people. Work is' to'-b'e pushed on  the Promistura during thewinter. The  Clark McGinnis property has been  bonded by W-iUliam McKenzie of Toronto and'P. Burns, the wholesale butcher.  "Swan and Wright have struck" it  rich on their claim at the head of Cariboo creek. The ore carries galena,  copper, and silver, nnd the assays are  high. The district, in my opinion, is  onedi the comiiig"bnes;" "concluded  Mr. Finch.  If life, is worth  haviiifr it is worth  vv '"  taking.   care,  of.  y rY.

They over-work, they, do not take  sufficient time, from business or labor to eat  or sleep or rest, or to care for,their health.  Outraged nature throws out danger, signals,  to which they,;pay.'no"heed.

The Canadian Pacific Railway has  issued a small hand book on Canada's  interests in the West India Island. All  agents ofthe company recently visited  Bermuda, St. Thomas, St. Croix, St.  Kitts, Antigua, Dominica. St. Lucia,  Barbados,7 Trinidad and Dcmcrara.  The imports of the different islands arc  given, and it is apparent at a glance  that Canada does a very small trade  with them compared, with that done  by the United States. Tho C-P.
