The side walls of the Presbyterian  church are settling, and funds are being  raised to remedy the evil.  Born: At Plantagenet, Ont., Oct. fi,  1899, to the wife of Walt .1. Spaul of  Robson, B. C, a daughter.  P. DuMoulin will not return here with  his bride, having been transferred to the  Bank of Montreal, Victoria.  The C.P.R. mechanics, who went out  on strike two weeks ago, have gone back  to work, having won their point.  The steamer Slocan was put into commission on Monday last, much to the  general satisfaction of the public.  Hugh Calhoun, in cutting out a fallen  tree on the A E trail, Thursday, gashed  his foot in bad shape with the axe.  Mrs. J. C. Bolander returned from  Spokane on Monday. She was accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. Brown.  Mr. and Mrs. Shave, of London,Eng;.,  have been spending1, several days in  town.

Pophant and McFarlane, have  lately returned from a trip into the  Similakeen country, bringing* with them  glowing accounts of the possibilities of  that country.  George Tunstall, of Nelson, talks of  organizing a company of real red-coated  rough riders to wave the flag ot Koote-  enay in front of the Boers. George has  plenty of powder and should be able to  work up a boom in far-off A frica.  J. C. Taylor returned to New Denver  from a. trip into the Windermere country on Sunday. He brings back with  him some, enthusiastic stories of the  richness of that division, and also  some very pretty samples of copper-  gold ore.  Charley Greenlee was in Nelson the  other day, the first time in over seven  yearr. Charley has always had the price  of the fare in his jeans,but business held  him elsewhere. He is one;, of, the pioneers in the Slocan upon whom' Dame  Fortune has sweetly smiled, and the  boys all say the fickle goddess showed  good sense and judgment. Charley deserves a long roll of the green to match  the sterling qualities of his character,  which is like in colot to the snow that  caps the bald:head of Silver mountain.  A very successful concert and social  was given Tuesday evening in Bosun  Hall under the auspices of the Ladies'  Aid of the Methodist church. Prof.  Thomlinson's orchestra, was ih attendance, and several very good selections  were1 given. Silverton talent assisted  in the entertainment, and, with the  many excellent numbers by New Den-  verites, the evening was most enjoyably  spent. Refreshments were served at  the conclusion of the program and at  11:00 the large crowd in attendance dispersed for their homes.  the construction at the 'Emily Edith, reports satisfactory progress with the new  buildings.-  New quarters are being erected on the  L II, and development will proceed all  winter. Tlie lower tunnel is now in upwards of SO feet.,  Eighty-tune.tons .of ore was shipped  froni Whitewater last week, 15 tons being from the Jackson and the remainder  from tha Whitewater.  John Carrahar has just completed a 50  foot crosscut on the Drumlummond  group. The vein shows two feet of concentrating and five inches of clean ore.  There are 22 men on the Slocan Star  and the force is to be increased. Last  week three feet of concentrating ore was  unexpectedly encountered in the No. 5  level.   Tlie tunnel being driven on the  Mollie Hughes is in 80 feet. The ore  has staid with them all the way. At  one point it was 30 inches in width  Forty tons of ore are sacked ready for  shipment.  Docksteader Bros, have bonded the  Standard group, near. Cody, to Y,Geo. B.  Dean for $12,000. Cabins are being put  up and the property will be energetically  worked all winter. Six inches of clean  ore was recently struck on this group.  Very satisfactory reports are brought  in from the Jeanette mine, on Wilson  creek. In the cross-cut tunnel being-  run to demonstrate the extent of the  ledge, the. third ore chute has been en-  encountered.' 11 carries the' rielvest'ore  of any"and is 10 ihche- wide. The two  .ore chutes previously tapped are 12 and  8 inches in width  A new trail is being built to the Ca-  pella group Winter quarters are to be  erected, and work will be pushed all  winter This is another promising  New Denver property. Six distinct  ore chutes have been uncovered on the  property, from one of which three tons  of rich dry ore was taken and shipped  early last spring, realizing the, owners  a handsome nroh't.  mini bail of the ("Mdfellows, to be given  in the Music Hall, on Friday evening,  October 27th. These halls have come to  be looked upon as the great social event  of the season and, judging from the former entertainments given by thissociety,  all those who can will accept the oppor  tunity of spending a very enjoyable  evening with them this year.  L. A. Thurston  received   a  cable Saturday from J. A. Williams to put a large  force  on   the   Chapleau   at once.    Mr.  Williams  has   been  very successful  in  floating a company in  England, with  a  large capital, to develope the Chapleau  group on an  extensive scale.   There are  already good buildings on the property,  and considerable work done by the original owners.   This is one of the most  promising  properties  near Slocan City,  and the intention  of the new company  to develope it further at great depth will  almost sure to  make a very fine mine  'out of it.    Several carloads of ore has  been shipped from the Chapleau, and  the smelter returns have given  $85 per  ilNGREASING FORGES J  ton in gold.  FLOAT    FROM   NELSON.  SI.OCA.V CITY   NKVVS  IX   ItUIKF.  SLOGAN   MINERAL    FLOAT.  holder in the Northwest Mining- Syndi  -cate.  Alex. Sproat is taking a peep at Spokane.   Before returning  he intends to  ���see the Boundary from the top deck of a  ������cayuse.  There is a general feeling of relaxation in the depression that has existed  particularly around Sandon for the past  few months    A gradual revival is felt.  G. L. Taylor, C.P.R. agent at Rosebery, has been transferred to Nelson.  R. G. McGamon, formerly checker at  Slocan City, now does the work at Rosebery.  About  150  miners are   employed   at  Ainsworth.    The  Kootenaian  says that  they are paid 83.50 for eight  hour shifts  aud nor. $3, as stated   by the Nelson Tribune.  The Roman Catholics have secured the  Kerr brick building, on Bellevue ave.,  for church purposes. Regular services  will be held, the fir3t taking place last  Sunday.  Owing to the delay in the arrival of  supplies, the opening of - the new Presbyterian church at Sandon, billed for  next Sunday, has been postponed till  Nov. 12.  Everything looks promising for the  third annual ball of the Knights of Pythias on November 2. A big attendance  from Silverton and other outside points  is assured.  The train   service  on   the  Nakusp &  Slocan and  Slocan   River branches was  ���changed this week.   The trains now run  on the old time: Leaves Sandon at 8 a.m.,  leaves the Siding for Sandon  at'"-5:55.  The Best is employing four men at  present.  The force on the Queen Bess has been  increased.  The Wakefield concentrator is being  rapidly constructed.  The American Boy is to be a regular  shipper this winter.  The Evening Star, on the north fork,  will be worked' all winter.  The long crosscut on the Miller Creek  has caught the ledge in 330, feet.  The ore shipments of the camp for the  year have passed the 18,OOp, figure..  Ten inches of ore is showing on the  McAllister group, on the north fork.  The American Boy has considerable-  ore on the dump ready for shipment.  Slocan City has no idle men, as the  mines have taken up the surplus labor.  The Ivanhoe is steadily increasing its  force, the number now being upwards of  40.  Lack of proper quarters has caused the  Essex to suspend operations for the winter.  The force on the   Dardanelles is being  increased, there  now   beimr   28 men at  work.  New buildings are being erected at the  Hewitt. Ore is showing in the face of  both drifts.  Two cars of ore is being shipped daily  from the Lucky Jim, which is now employing 24 men.  Large quantities of supplies have been  landed at Ten-Mile for Camp Mansfield,  at the head of the creek.     .  Development is being; pushed on the  Maydee. The ledge is five feet wide and  carries considerable concentrating values.  Three hundred feet of tunneling has  been run on the Corinth group, near  here, since June. Three men are employed.  The crosscut tunnel on the Rockland  has cut the ledge, exposing a fine chute  of ore, carrying high values in gold and  copper.  Gordon Sutherland, who has charge of  E. Mansfield returned to Slocan City  on Friday.  The Warner Miller and McNaught  syndicate, are building a sleigh road up  Lemon creek to the Kilo group. This  road will beextended up to the Chapleau  group.  I A carload of ore was shipped last week  from th-a Black Prince to the Nelson  smelter. The property is now looking  better than ever, with six feet of clean  ore in tne face of the tunnel.  A sleigh road is to be built at once up  Ten Mile creek, from the end of the En.  terprise wagon road to the Smuggler  group, and everthing put into good  shape for active work on the latter property this winter.  There was a little fire- in Payne's hotel  Saturday night, caused by a stovepipe  burning out. Fortunately very little  damage was done. The bucket brigade  turned out in full force and soon extinguished the blaze.  J. W. Smith is working his claim,near  the Two Friends. He already has a tunnel well under way, and it is thought the  Black Prince lead runs through the  ground. He has some distance yet to  run to catch the lead.  Tom Henderson, late C.P.R. agent  here, has gone to Nelson, where he will  be train despatelier in future. His many  friends here will heartily wish him all  success in his new field. He will be much  missed in Slocan City, where he was always ready to take part in any sport.  The steamer Slocan commenced her  regular runs again Monday morning.  The time table is about the same as last  spring. The train from Nelson arrives  at11.20 a.in. and  departs again  at  12  John A. Turner will, resign his office  in about a month,and will go to England  for the winter.  E. J. Robie, one of the best tailors in  Kootenay, has moved into new quarters  on Baker street.  There are many nickle gamblers in  Nelson and, in consequence, the' slot  machines are fat and.healthy.  Otto Rosendale goes to England this  week in search of capital; for an enterprise that will mean much to Nelson.  The-Exchequer mine is looking healthy, and A. PL Kelly has a smilo that is  large, well defined, and strictly in place.  I). McArthur & Co. are making heavy  shipments to the Boundary. They sell  more furniture than any other house in  Kootenav.  J. H. Bowes, the well known lawyer,  has returned from a summer tour of  Europe. He has tv/o sisters residing in  Paris and another relative in London.  The Granite Mines has purchased the  Poorman mine for $215,000. The Poor-  man is about six miles from town and is  a gold producer of several years' standing.  Tyhoid fever  has a  few  citizens in  a  hot   place, but   most  of   them   escape  without any serious  results.   The fever  ,is not very strong, being a milk and water variety.  Pat Russell and F. Starkey, of the Par  son's Produce Co., were in the Boundary  country last   week,  partially  on   legal  business.   While there, in less than four  days, they took orders for over $41,000  worth of eggs, cheese, butter, and other  goods.   They took orders also for 10 tons  of poultry for Thanksgiving day,   but  have found great difficulty in   getting,  even a portion of that amount for their  customers.   The government, in chang,-  ing the date for Thanksgiving, has work  ed a hardship on   poultry dealers.    Turkeys are not fed  up  for the occasion  so  earlv in the season.  CONCEIT    UXADULTKRATKO.  A local writer, with more conceit than  wisdom, pens a lengthy effusion to the  Nelson Miner to disprove the statements  made in thesecolumns last week relating  to the malicious article appearing in the  i Miner the week previous. The audacious youth states that, "for the information of subscribers of the Lkdgk, he  wishes to state that, the criticism in the  LicnGB was a corrupt distortion of facts,"  and-he proceeds to unburden liis head of  several ideas the aggregate of which  would hardly be sufficient to tickle the  funny-bone of a flea. This inflated  vouth with miniature ideas presumes to  !,set himself up  as' an. authority against  noon.    Tlie steamer makes   two regular j the LKi.><.;fi, and   to discredit  this  runs daily, (i a.m. and   12 noon startinsr. I with its subscribers   paper  0 a.m. and  12 noon starting, j with its subscribers.     It is to be hoped !'Bosun (claims embraced  returning at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.' j the subscribers Vill appreciate the boy's j Lake Shore   Last week it was our aim to disabuse  the minds of outsiders,   who   have  no  means of knowing the exact condition of  affairs in the Slocan,  of the belief growing out of the malicious statements appearing in unreliable  newspapers,  that  the Slocan camp   is   dead   and   on the  verge of ruination.     We   would   again  further impress it upon the-minds of all  that such in not the case, and all effortf  being made to show that such is the case  come from a source that is not to be relied upon.    Business is not as good as it  was two years ago, and in  some cases  the effect of the lock-out has been more  seriously felt than in others, but the district as a whole has made better progress  in the way of substantial development  this summer than in any like period in  recent years,  and  better opportunities  are open to capital now than ever before.  This is not idle talk.    It   is   the true  condition of affairs, and is largely the result of the closing down of the big properties, thus forcing  the practical miners  to push development on new properties.  No one will deny that some  of the big  properties are closed down altogether,  and others are only employing partial  forces, yet this is offset to a considerable  extent by the opening up of other newly  developed properties,   vrhose forces ar��  being increased all  the  time.      And   to  say the camp is sleeping or dead is sheer  maliciousness, born more of the desire  than from actual conditions.  Last week we gave a partial list of the  properties working and the number of  men employed. The opposition press,  (those papers that believe they can win  the contest against the miners by decrying the camp) stated the list was incorrect, and attempted to prove there  was not the activity going on that we reported. We can conceive of nothing  more silly than this. It is to the interest  of every man in the district to have the  camp go ahead���every man but the  prospect buyer who wants to buy at the  lowest ebb���and the general revival now  noticeable should not be checked by the  political clogs along the way. The list  we gave last week was, in the main, correct so far as wa were able to learn. It  was not claimed that it was absolutely  reliable, for this ia aomething that absolute reliability cannot be attained in  since the working forces are liable to  change daily. Since last week we have  learned of further additions to the working forces and give below a fairly correct  : summary of the number of properties  working and the men employed:  Camp Mansfield  100  Springer and Lemon creeks   and  properties adjacent to Slocan City  including. Ten Mile  100  Florida  8  Best  4  Queen Bess  35  Idaho  8  Sunshine  16  Muldoon  2  Ivanhoe  40  Jackson  10  Whitewater  15  Hillside  3  North Fork Carpenter c. properties 15  Noble Five  10  American Boy   <,  Lucky Jim..'.  24  Rambler  30  Dardanelles  28  Standard  4  Slocan Star .'.  22  1 Payne    Sovereign   Madison   Ajax Fraction   Vulture   Ruth   Coin       ii  Unnamed properties around Sandon 25  ������         ������    Whitewater 15  Jeanette  15  Champion  s-j  California  9  Hartney  10  Marion  Iu  in group)., 9  . . 1  Maydee  Willa group.  , T.j. H   3*  4  4  Total No. men employed..... 733  . As stated above, there may be more  men employed on some of these prop  ertiesand there may be less, but. in the  main the list is correct. Many of the  larger properties are putting on more  men and there is little doubt but that  this number will be largely increased  before the month is out.  This number should lie increased to  1,500 men at least when the mines are  in full swing.     Indeed, with the, new  properties added to the list that have  been opened up the past summer, this  number should be raised to 2,000 before  many months have passed.     It can be  best judged from this,���taking 1,500 as  the number that ought to be employed  and  800 as the number actually em- .  ployed,���-what the condition of the Slocan actually is.    It can be. seen how absurd are the statements being made by  the emisarries of the "ruination" warblers.   These same unpatriotic criers of  ruin have pestered the Slocan before.  They will ever be ready to spout ruin  when the string- is pulled.    A chick that  befouls its nest is pecked out by the  mother fowl; and. the  man  that maliciously decrys. the district  that affords  him a living is  not entitled to  better  treatment;   He. is not worthy of Canadian citizenship.     The Slocan  is all  right!   It will be enriching the  world  with its precious metals when we are  all dead and buried.    Anybody not satisfied to keep a-drilling in  times  like  these should seek other fields.  PRES BYTE RY    APPOINT M. K NTS.

Bill Green, Fred Robinson and David  Whiteley, or Red Paddy, as the latter is  familiarly known, left the Slocan about  a month ago to prospect- along the Kettle  river. At a point 30 miles from Fire  Valley and 50 miles from Vernon, they  located six claims, calling them Thistle,  iose, Shsimrock. Manxman, Taf-  LealY    One of   the num-  15  i")  S  lgj White  fs j fay, and Maple  her staked a pre-emption of UiO acres.  Work on one of the claims has shown up  a paystreak that carries free gold in  large quantities. The party came out.  this week, bringing with them a large  sack of rock, thickly studded with gold.  The exhibition of the samples at Nakusp  on Monday  caused  an   excitement, and  Tlie prospects are that this winter will  see a,large mini her-of miners working  near here. At present the following properties sire being actively developed :���  Arlington, Smuggler, Black .Prince,Kilo,  Chapleau, Skylark & Ranger, Two  Friends, and a number of others. The  Tamarac and Evening Star will likely  start up again shortly.  Invitations are  out  for  the   third an-  vain folly. It is the first time a sub-  clerk in a mining company's office has  attempted to do such a thing, and his  simplicity is to be' pitied rather than  condemned.

TBURSDAY, OCTOBER 19. 1899.  A     LIVE    COKFSE.  Much has been said and much has  been written about the eight-hour  law in the Slocan. It is now over  four months since the mine managers  stood pat and commenced to sip  misery, while they waited for this  great district to become a corpse. It  is still alive although it has stood a  lot of jabbing lrom the pens of literary wild-cats, and a hurricane of wind  from pleasant, but misguided, mine  managers.  Upon examination we find that the  camp which has made Kootenay  famous is still breathing ancl lias over  700 men working within its borders  at mining. We find that the forces  are being constantly increased, which  will be sad news to those who wish  people to believe that we would have  nothing to live upon this winter except blue-ruin and snow. There is  not an empty stomach in the camp,  and the inhabitants still wear clothes.  If Thanksgiving had not been sprung  on us so soon this vear we would all  be eating turkey today. Those birds  are so scarce that they cannot be had  for love or money. We all have the  price, and will have other luxuries  in their stead.  We do not think that the mine  managers have displayed any vast  amount of gray matter in their upper  stope from the way in which thev  have conducted their campaign  against organized labor. Few of  them have displayed qualities that  would entitle them to a reputation for  generalship. Some of them have  seen the opportunity in the present  trouble to procure new properties at  lower prices than would prevail if the  Slocan was free from the present conflict.  The mine managers should  have  conformed  to   the conditions  forced  upon them last June, and bided their  time, instead of sulking like a lot of  children   whose   ma   will  not give  them any more pie.     Their actions  have damned their cause. If they had  not raised such a howl,   and acted as  though they were the  only people,  the trouble would have terminated in  one of wages instead of hours.   In the  meantime,  while  waiting for developments the price  of lead and silver  may depreciate, and stockholders be  gin  to think that their mines   will  need better management it they ever  want to look again upon the welcome  face of a dividend.   We feel sorry for  the mine managers.    The situation is  no doubt perplexing to them and they  have  some  of our   sympathy.    We  never give advice,   but if we  were  managing a mine  in  the Slocan we  would run it  full   blast or else  quit  the job.     We would  not  waste our  time trying to force labor to our terms  when such a thing is impossible, unless foreign  scabs and  an army of  soldiers are brought into the camp.  "Oh, papa," he exclaimed,  j as they stopped in front of the elephant,  | "look at the big cow with her horns in  i her mouth, eating" hav with her tail."  i y ���  | ''Why was it forbidden Adam and  | Eve to eat of the fruit from the tree of  i'knowledge?'' asked the teacher of the  juvenile class. -'Mebby he was afraid  j they'd fall out of the tree an: g-et hurt,"  j replied a little fellow who had bis arm  , in a sling.  | ' ���'-  ��       .  j Teach a boy to be saving after the  | following fashion and he may grow up  land become a 'much-sought-after hank'  j cashier: "Yes," said the father to a  j visitor, as he stroked his little son's  I head, "'Johnnie has started a bank for  | his odd pennies and nickles.

In wading through,  however, the lassies had to hold up  their petticoats, and it was a favorite  pastime 6i Robbie Burns and mischievous companions to lie in wait for the  lassies coining through the Rye. When  they got to midstream, the laddies  would wade out and snatch a kiss from  the lassies, who were unable to resist  without dropping their skirts into the  water.  >IAU�� AND THK JUDGE AGAIN.

News has reached Victoria from Atlin  of great hardship suffered by a party of  miners,   consisting   of S.  Taylor,  W.  Bickford and A.  Tomasse,  who were  lost, on the Teslin trail to Atlin.     They  arrived at Atlin  on Oct    4th,, sixteen  days from Teslin.    They were nearly  three days without a morsel of food.  Tomasse anticipated  the arrival of his  two more unfortunate companions by  two days,  having separated  from the  others hoping by a wide divergence of  route to come upon  something in the  way of humanity.     When  he reached  Atlin he got together a small party and  went back to search for his lost friends.  They were found encamped on  a hill  about 12 miles to  the north of Sucker  Lake, and the tale they had   to tell  when rescued was a pitiful one.    When  the  food ran shy they lived for four  days and a half on one half pound of  beans per day each.   Then they reluctantly killed their pack horse.   But the  sacrifice need  not   have been   made,  for about a couple of hours  later the  rescuing party arrived.  Cody Wanted to Get 111.

KiiorinouH   Fields   of   Min era la   on  KnHtei-n Shore* of Hudson Hay.  the  Ungava Land, a region as desolate  and unknown as the Klondike was four  years ago, has just been penetrated by  a party of prospectors headed by a  newspaper man of Fort Francis, Ont ,  and consisting for the-most part of men  representing a wealthy Boston syndicate. From their reports aiid from  statements made by a member of the  Canadian geological survey, whom they  found in that region, they have run into  a new Klondike and a better one���better in that it is richer in diversified  minerals, of larger extent, and easy to  reach, compared to the ice deserts of  the Yukon.  About a year ago J. A. Osborne,  editor of a newspaper of this boundary  region, became the possessor of a diary  that had been the records of an old employe of the. Hudson Bay Company.  Reading it without much regard for  what there might be inside, he was astonished to find that it told circumstantially the discovery of mineral deposits  on the eastern shore of Hudson Bay,  north from the Whites river, in what is  known as Ungava Land, one of the last  remaining unexplored tracts of the  North American continent. The description both -is regard to location and  minerals was so clear and lucid that  Mr. Osborne had no great ' dillic.ulty in  inducing Boston capitalists, friends of  his. to provide the funds to equip an  expedition to explore for these mineral  fields. *-, ;.- ���_������;     ,'..,  Late in'MavY.'of tliis veai-. the.partv  left Boston, Yujd. on' June1 4th disem-  barked froin a Canadian Pacific rail way  train at Missinable station, in northeast  Ontario, ready for the difficult aiid pet-  haps dangerous trip northward' down  the rivers that flow into Hudson Bay  and afong the shores of that vast sea.  By canoe they went north from Missinable along rivers, across lakes, over  fords and portages known only to the  Indians and Hudson Bay Company  traders, and in a month readied the  mouth of Moose river, at the south end  m .James Bay. where is located the important post of Moose Factory of the  Hudson Bay Company.  In a small sloop, managed by Indians  the explorers continued northward,  along.the shores of .Limes Bay, and  passed out into the large waters of  Hudson Bay itself, which was reached  early in .Inly. Here considerable ice in  Hoes was encountered, but the sloop  pushed along still north. At brief intervals, where the original explorers  h.-id noted minerals, the prospectors  landed and explored inland to the east,  finding evidences that the diary had not  been at fault. Minerals of the highest  economic value were often found. Before turning again to the south the  p.ir'ty had satisfied themselves of the  vast mineral riches of the region and  had found what appeared to indicate  without question large and valuable  deposits of gold, silver, copper, iron,  anthracite coal and lignite, gypsum  and cinnabar. There were also beds of  potter's clay and silica sand, of apparently large extent. On tracts where  the party discovered mineral they have  now filed claims at the Dominion offices  in Ottawa.  or many others of the distant gold fields  of the world. The country can be  readied by water direct from any port  on the Atlantic coast by going north  around the Labradore coast and into  Hudson Bay. Once a year a ship comes  from England to Moose Factory, which  is the Hudson Bay .Company's headquarters for the entire far northeast,  and it has no difficulty in getting into  the great bay and down to the head of  the James. For the past 1.00 years this  trip has been made every year.  "There are rich fields for all kinds of  mining enterprises all along the route  we traveled. Just north of Missinable  there are beds of gypsum, lignite and  anthracite coal; near Moose Factory  are deposits of gold, silver and copper;  not far off there are beds of the finest  potter's,clay and sand, and still farther  north are rare minerals, besides deposits of iron ore that seem iimitless. There  is a. mineral region of 2o0,000 square  miles���perhaps twice as much. We  could not tell anything of its extent���  no one can for years���and there is room  for the prospector for a century, perhaps. The country seems to be one of  nature's greatest storehouses of minerals of economic and precious values.  Analyses made at Ottawa on our return showed our coal to be of the best  grades of anthracite, our iron to be excellent, our other minerals to be all we  had expected.  "On the east shores of Hudson bay,  near the Great and Little Whale rivers,  we found A. P. Lowe of the Canadian  geological survey, who had been traversing that region for two years and  was about to corne home. He had been  engaged in making a geographical  track survey along- the east shores of  Hudson and James bays, as far north as !  Cape Wolfenston, and had found much  in the way of mineral wealth���so much,  in fact, that he told us he was sure the  region holds mineral wealth that far  exceeds the Yukon or any other territory yet opened east of the Rocky  mountains He believes fully that it is  the coining mineral producing region of  the American continent.''  The Boston company for whom these  lands waro, taken has decided,   it is un- j  derstood, to  fit out a   steamer in the!  spring with a large amount of supplies i  and with men to  explore and  develop!  its holdings there     The boat  will   be j  sent north and down into Hudson Bay j  to Great Whale river      Railroads can |  be constructed ..down to Missinable and I  Moose   rivers at  no undue cost;  and  there are large and comfortable settlements of the.Crea Indians and the Hudson Bay Company af   obits where supplies are needed.

Mackintosh   Tells   Toronto   til olio  What He Thinks of It.  BOER WAR IS ON  England is Determined to Sweep  Oom Paul Oft the Earth.  the  negrotia-  War, so long   predicted as  bein  inevitable  climax  to hopeless  1 tions, has come at last, and is now in  full swing for the subjection of the little  Boer republic, whose military sun rises  and sets at Majuba Hill.    Great Britain  has set going  machinery more powerful  than that which crushed Napoleon, and  twice as strong as that which gave her  Egypt and   the  Soudan.   General   Sir  Redvers  Buller  has gone, and  already  the Boer  bullets have sung the song of  desperate resistance.   That the next few  weeks will be  marked by sharp fighting  can almost be  taken for granted.    That  the result will probably be for a time not  too favorable to the British, is also to be  admitted.    The  main question  is, how  long  are  hostilities   to last.    Ultimate  British victory  is assured by  reason of  overwhelming strength.   A  forecast of  the length  and  nature of the campaign  should not be  ventured without knowledge of  an extraordinary  chcumstance  communicated, by most reliable authority���namely,  that General   Buller   has  gone   to   take   entire command of the  South African situation.    He will be as  absolute as Wellington and less hampered than was  Kitchener.   Therefore, not  only is the conduct of the war in his discretion, but also virtually the future of  all South Africa.  Tw.o months ago the secretary of state  for war, the Marquis of Lansdowne, offered General Buller command of the  projected army corps. Sir Redvers declined to accept it, unless the War Office  would guarantee him between 60,000 and  70,000 men. He is quoted as having  said on that occasion: "I shall not be  handed down in history as another Sir  George Colley." The reference,of course,  was to the defeat at Majuba Hill; and he  also said that if he were to go, it must  be on the distinct understanding that he  could select his own staff, and would be  entirely uninterfered with by the War  Office. Prior to Lord Lansdowne's assent, General Buller freely expressed the  opinion that when he had driven the  Boers into a corner, his hand might be  stayed by a peace-lovin�� cabinet or a  weli inteiitioned War Office, a condition  of things he could not tolerate for, sis lie  expressed it. his hand was '-not one of  those that, once put to the plough, release their grip.''  It appears that   both   the  Queen   and  cabinet practically  acquiesced in bis demand, although,  of  couree,   retaining it :  nominal    control,   scarcely    worth    the I  name.    Genera! Buller is 'pretty certain |  to cut tin- wires   in-hind   him so as to be  out    of   touch   with   London   at critical  moments,   for   fear   the   cabinet   might  change its  mind.    Me  knows the Boers  and   has no   liking   tor  them.    He   has  campaigned over the   whole present battle ground, and   is, above  all,   a  soldier  from iiead to foot.  As soon as he reaches South Africa he  will inaugurate a campaign of such aggressiveness as the world has seldom  seen, but which he believes to be justifi-  Speaking in a recent  issue of the  Toronto Globe, Hon. C. H. Mackintosh, of  Rossland, said of the eight-hour law:���  "I really have not time to go into details  regarding the issues.    However, I  may  say this, and common sense suggests it>  that no government should countenance  mischievous legislation.   The eight-hour  law was really never asked for, that is, a  law  making   eight   hours   the  limit of  mine workers.    It was hastily conceived  and passed, without the consideration a  measure of the kind deserved. You know  that many of the mine owners cannot af'  ford to pay exorbitant  prices  for  labor  while developing a  property.    The consequence is, scores  of mines have been  virtually closed, and only those yielding  substantial profits can continue the work  of exploration.    This I look upon as very  detrimental, not only to the Slocan   district, Rossland camp and  the Boundary  country, but as likely to prevent investment.    It  would  be  very  hard now to  annul the legislation  spoken of, but my  hope is that friendly arbitration may result in an agreement on the basis of contract labor, when the best men will make  contracts  with  mining companies, and  thus be enabled to secure more than the  ordinary profit of eight hours work. The  coast cities depend a great deal on   the  mining industry,as throughout a greater  portion of  the  western   portion  of the  province mining supplies  are purchased  there.      When  the   mining   market  is  congested, the interior should have been  so developed as to  counteract the result  of mining depressioi .   British Columbia  requires an interior  railway policy, such  as did so much for  Ontario from 1868 to  to 1884.   These short subsidized   lines  were doubtless instrumental in developing various   industries, including stock  raising,  manufacture of cheese, raising  of poultry, as well  as  the utilization o^  water power for  various manufactures.  To some extent  this  might  be accomplished in  British  Columbia, and there  is no province in Canada richer in varied  resources than this very province."  The populace still buy cigars at  Williams'. They must like them or  they would not come so often in search  of goods that are high in aroma but  reachable with an ordinary amount of  collateral.
