In the l>oom days the  hitns o:r; prospects put on the market by unscrupu-  ous agents were frequently of that class which nocx-  lerienccii miner or prospector would touch.      But the  ntercstcd broker and com|>aiiy-proniQter' found them  ood enough tor their purpose, and with the magnet-  siii of allowing prosj>ectas they seldom failed to draw  he money out of the pockets of people who were thus  to believe that a sure road to wealth was o��>eu to  hem.    In too many instances what remained of trca-  my st >vk after the promoters had satisfied themselves  ,va> appliedylo development work,  but  at the point  ,vhea it "'.became necessary to instal machinery��� when  he real expense   would have  to be  incurred���there  .vere no'funds available,  and'as a consequence the  ���ainpanv " went up."     After a few scores of failures  a this class the investing public lost confidence, and  rash      Hut the game was played ton km?,'the losers  u. every.instance being those who "placed their money  n incompetent ii not dishonest hands.      Happily the  io-_imthini( element in the mining business has been  airly well, .eliminated, and people will no longer invest  heir'.money in wild-cat schemes.      Mining is a iegiti-  naie business, and like other industries only those who  ire oomjxk nt are likely to make it a success,   In such  Kiiuls.it offers advantages to  the judicious investor  lotto be met with in every-day commercial enterprises,  ill is a sale i^uide to  s{x*eulators  who are  not them*  ���Ives competent in .such   matters to judge a property  'by������'the men associated with it.    The time has arrived  11 British 'Columbia when no |K!rsou of any standing  ��'ui aihaal to allow his name to appear on any mining  J��oard.oi'directors   except the property   be exactly as  v%f!V^epiese-nied  S*<2  A  T  *A> \   l Ill<K1'- h;is been a decided tendenev of late vears to  ^^laaiHion the laim for citv life.    The result is that the  Vj. \ }/real centres of population are over-crowded and that  *- ^'10usimds of st a I worth men would could find profitable  1\ ;'Vl)rk ln ibe country  are walking the streets of our  , pities in idleness not that thev arenatural! v lazy, but  '- - ��� nat the labor market is over-stocked a    A man raised  ^   ,on a laiau is generally  a handy fellow; an- all-round  jack-of-all-trades but master of none. When he gets  into the city he finds that he has to compete with  thoroughly competent men in every branch of business, and tb<��t he is fore d to take a place, and fortunate if he can get it, among unskilled labor. This has  been the disagreeable experience of so many that there  are happily signs of a healthy re-action. From Toronto comes the announcement that a number of,  men have decided to leave for New Ontario and take  up farming lands. Most of these who have decided  to make the move are men who have graduatedjrom  the farm, but who have drifted into the employ of  railway companies as porters, navvies, or become  street laborers, teamsters, etc. They have learned by  sad experience that city life has its serious drawbacks  and that the farm affords a surer and more independent livelihood. Now-a-days the farmer's son aspires  to one of the professions: he will be a doctor, or a  lawyer, or a newspaper man, or sQtnething else that  calls for brain power rather than muscle. Now, with  modern facilities of education alfthe professions are  over-run, and for the one man who makes a success  there are a dozen failures. Not so on the farm. Industry always counts here, and the prosperous farmer  ought to be the happiest man living. Kot alone do  the hoys leave the farm, but the girls also, and hired  help has to be employed. This is not as it should be,  but happily a change is coming over the scene, when  the tiller of the soil will be encouraged and envied.  For many decades the name Siberia h?s been associated with all thot is cruel anddespotic Of recent  date. hoHjpver, the country has been thoroughly exploited, and instead of being a region of ever present  gloom it turns out to be the metaphorical ." land flow^  ing with milk and honey." Siberia proves to be a  country of immense possibilities���rich in minerals and  agricultural lands; and now that it has been opened  up by a line of railway is attracting thousands of settlers The Russian government is offering great inducements to settlers. It offers to carry them and  their effects at a rate of about one cent per ten miles  over the line of railway. This arrangement we are  told, has been made upon the personal suggestion of  the Czar�� who expects thus to divert the stream ot  emigration from America and utilize these forces for  his own empire. We do not want any more of the  emperor's subjects in this Canada of ours, and if Siberia proves equally acceptable, it would perhaps be  just as well that they settle there.  Of late there has beeiv quite a storm among the medical fraternity at Victoria, the main point at issue, as  'we'understand ivbeing the right of a physician to  contract -witha fraternal or beniiiciary society to treat  .

I'nder the arrangement  as it at present stands, the most eminent physician m  the world could not practice   his profusion unless he  puts in the probationary   term  in   British Columbia,  passes the board of examiners at Victoria, nrubuius  a special dispensation  from that   august   body.       A  somewhat similar rule applies to lawyers   fmm other-  places who wish toprastice in British Columbia.      lu  the case of lawyers there is  some excuse for Jihis test  and residence qualification,   as there is a difference iu  the laws of the various provinces and countries,   but  with the medical man it is not so.      A case oi fever is  diagnosed by   the qualified   practitioner iu   the saute  manner the world over,   and in like   fashion the various other diseases to which mankind is heir,     Then (  whvthis special examination in Victoria,  British Cob  umbia ?    Many men are prompted to join a l^cuiuYiaiy  society because it offers free medical attendance : they  are fearful as to the consequences should sickness overtake them and   they should   be called   upon to pay a  doctor Vbill according to theexisUug schedule of fees.  The society doctor is  recognized   elsewhere,   aud   lie  certainly should have a place in British Columbia.  According to a Mr. J II Watson, a member of the  executive of the Trades and Labor Council"!' Vancouver, a soldier ennnot be a good citizen having the  welfare of his fellow beings at heart. This is s��> diametrically opposed to the generally accepted conception of the citizen-soldier, that we must ictnaik that  this visious sentiment comes to us in the report of an  nterview with Watson aud the Vancouver eone-ipond-  ent of the Colonist. It is said that the Tra ies and  Labor Council intend to expel from the labor unions  all members of the local militia as a protest against  the militia being called out on the occasion of the strike  among the fishermen at Steveston. Should the /threatened expulsion be given effect to the action of 'the  Trades and Labor Council 'will be looked upon as  grossly tyrannical. We cannot, however, think thai  any sane men would put themselves on record for audi  an act. If labor councils wilfully offend public patriotism and sentiment they can expect little consideration at the hands of the public. Riot and bloodshed  were threatened at'the canneries'at the time,, and to  avert this the militia was called out. And their presence had the desired effect. The men were but obey-  ing orders in responding to the bugle call, and bad  they failed to do so they would have been liable to the  ^Jp^ishment provided by the military code, and what  is MB more degrading, would be looked upon as cowards in the eyes of the public  Tin* coal  supply of Great Britain  has  heretofore  been considered practically  inexhaustible.      As long  as the mines were only called  upon  to supply \mPi  demands there were grounds for l-,is estimate, but of  late years Norway. France,   Spain, Italy, Russia and]  other countries :ue calling upon (treat Britain for their  coal supply, and   the immense   reserve of the black  diamond is rapidly lieing exhausted.  At present sorm  4*>.ooo.��*.Ki,ton* per annum are sent away, aud Ufott  lung it is estimated this will run up to so.iwo.ooo.

Nelson is, par excellence, the  residential  city of the Kootenays,  and it is therefore  important that its reputation as a healthy place should  be maintained at any cost.     The sewerage system of  the city compares more than favorably with that of  any other pjace in the   Kootenays,   and with the extensions  now under way-rample funds to carry out  which were freely voted by the ratepayers a few weeks  ago���there is no city in the Province which can claim  a better system.    The supply of water is as pure as it  is abundant ; and here again a substantial appropriation is available for the laying of mains in the rapidly  growing districts.      Dr. LaBau suggests that a more  substantial isolation hospital be provided,   as the present building, hurriedly put up at the time when there  was a case of small-pox  on record, is not suitable  for  the safe treatment of contagious cases, inasmuch as it  cannot'be thoroughly disinfected when necessary.    In  this connection it is well to bear in mind that provision must he made for patients from the various min-  ing camps in the district,  any one of which is liable  to send in a contagious case any day.    If a good, sub-g  stantial building is to be erected, thoroughly equipped ;  and the services of a quali6ed nurse retained, the cost;  will   be considerable,  and ought to be substantiality;  contributed to by the   Provincial Government.'

It  cost the United States Government a million dollars  aud hundreds'of lives before he was safely behind  iron bars Deprived of his liberty as punishment  for his crimes, he could not stand the confinement;-.;  For fourteen years he has been a prisoner, the last  ten at Fort Sill. For almost half a century he led a  band of Apaches on the warpath To the early settlers  of thesouth-west he was a terror: Because he successfully led his men in a battle at the age of sixteen  he was made a war eh^  with six hundred Apaches, were encountered by  Mexican soldiers.

After months of starvation and after all hope  of cutting their w*y through the cordon of troops  had gone, the Indians raised the white flag and  Surrendered.

Shipments from the Golden Crown are now running up to between 75 and 100 cars, since the company started sending out ore.
The Buckhorn shipped a car of ore to the T rail
smelter this week.
It is reported from Montreal that anf important announcement has been made by Mr;.HQ;:R, Hosmer,
director of the Centre Star and! ^Vaia^^le mines,
British Columbia/ also director of the Canadian
Pacific railway, to the effect that a deal is on with
the C. P. R* by which that company is to handle and
smelt ore for the mines at a figure which is under-
stood to be $2tooo,ooo annually. Mr. Hosmer said
that shipments from both mines are being held pending the signing of the agreement by which the War
l%agle would receive special terms for transportation
and smelting. This, Mr Hosmer said, would so reduce the cost of mining that it would be possible to
profitably mine lower grade ore than had been
hitherto. Under th s agreement, it is further added,
War Eagle and Centre Star would ship a mimimum
of 1,000 tons per day.
The first shipment of ore from the Le Roi No. 2
mines was made to the Northport smelter last week. It
consisted of four carloads from the No. 1. All preparations are being made for regular shipments from
that mine.

THE MINING LAWS.  In the Local Legislature on Monday a petition was  read, signed by the Hall Mines Co., the Center Star  Co , the British America Corporation and a number  of other leading mining companies throughout  Kootenay. It recited the fact that, by Dominion  Commissioner Clu te's report at least $30,000,000 was  invested iu West Kootenay mines, and the petitioners  pointed out that recent legislation had interfered with  the successful working of the properties, and had  been responsible for disturbing the harmony between  capital and labor, as well as proving generally detrimental to the mining interests. The petitioners  asked that under the circumstances a special investigation should be made by a committee to remove all  grievances and place the mining laws in a satisfactory  condition  A bill to amend the Mineral Act was also brought  down. It provides a $25 penalty for mining witt  out a license, provides for issuing crown grants to  the administrator of a deceased claim owner, raises  the crown grant fee from $10 to $25, and, as advised  by the committee, makes provision for a man to advertise a delinquent co-owner out of his claim, instead  ��� of proceeding through the court.

Quiet, resigned and calm, she found her way  home, softly unlatched tl e door and went, in.  The bright moonlight streamed in a silver bar  through the long, low window, and there in its  brightness, with upraised face, almost transfigured  with happiness, was the "senonta" clasped in the  captain's arms.

The   first step   towards  conditions for the raining population was  the inquiry  instituted by a royal commission, appointed in 1840  In their report the coramissiori found that M Instances  bcciir iawhtclv cUildren are taken in ta these: (coa I)  mines to work as early as four years of,age. sometimes at five, and bet ween, five and six and seven,  often from seven to eight, while from eight to nine is  the ordinary age at which employraent in these (coal)  mines commences. A very large portion of the  persons employed in carrying on the work of these  mines is under rj years of age ; and a still larger  proportion between 13 and 18. In several districts  female children begiirto work in these mines at the  same early age as the" malesy In the East of Scotland it was more common for children to begin to  work at five and six years old than in any part of  England. In the W est of Scotland children were  taken down into the pits at a very early age 'V In  North Wales it was more  ployed at five or six, but very common at seven years  of ag<��a: In South Wales more cases were recorded  of the employment of children at very early ages than  in any other district -afrom four to six  years of   age.  it was not umisuaL  ; years;of,age;; ^mauy;''.wer^  work.;:a In;South:::Olouceste  of children employed ;.-atsix ;veay':;o!d:;^.^nd:-:'i,i;'^  setshire many -.began^,\vorfc;;fe six aricl"  yearsof age.:'a" ^''������\ZP-P^XPPPP^P'tPPyPfy.  .
