Intending bene-  factois will do-better by leaving their money to the  General Hospital for the Sick���people.  Mk. R, E. Gosxkll has been appointed secretary  of the Bureau of Statistics for the Province. The object of the bureau is the collection of information relating to mining, agriculture, shipping, labor, health,  railways, education, finance, building, insurance, etc.  ���in fact general statistics as to the development of  the Province. The appointment is one which meets  with general approval, as Mr. Gosnell has been in the  public service long enough to satisfy all as to bis competency. As Provincial Librarian he did good service, while his Yearbook of British Columbia has done  more to advertise the resources of the Province than  any publication we know of Now that the compilation of statistics is in competent bands, we may reasonably expect that more in formation will beavailable  than has been the case. We have always contended  that reliable statistics should be furnished as to the  mining development going on in British Columbia,  and that this information should be published at stated  intervals���monthly or quarterly. We should think  it would.not be. very difficult to .make such an.arrange v  ment with the resources at the command of the Minis-.',  ter of Mines available. Such returns 3re published  regularly in other mining countries, and always prove  interesting and valuable, There is no reason why  British Columbia should be an exception to the rule.  An extraordinary story comes  from the northern  British Columbia fishing grounds.      Mr. J.

The" bill-provides for the issue ofa yearlv  license, costing $iooo, to each manufacturer ofa proprietary medicine, and compels the filing of the for in-  ���ilia with a registrar to be appointed under the act.   It  is made a  criminal offence to  advertise,   sell, or offer  fbr sale any medicine which is, having regard to  the  formula,   fraudulent  or misleading as to the curative  properties claimed for it,      It would appear to us that  this affords a  protection to   the public,   who are continually   being  defrauded  by   what  are significantly  known as   -quack medicines"      Verv   many newspapers,   Thk   Economist  included,   will not accept  these  quack   advertisements,   soraanv of which ^re  glaringly fraudulent and positively indecent,  some of  them  even   suggestive   of the means of committing  crime     That there are good proprietary medicines on  the market we will freely admit, but that the vast majority of the "cure-alU" which  are freeiv   advertised  throughout  the   length and breadth   of the land are  worse than useless,   must  be conceded.      Those who  oppose the Patent Medicine   Bill do so on the ground  (as they allege) that   is would give   the medical pro-  fession  too strong a hold on the public purse���that it  would compel one to go to a doctor and pay him from  two to twenty dollars for what they could get from a  druggest for as many cents.

As to where  the mint will be established, that is a matter.of detail  which can he easily settled, For convenience sake,  the site should be somewhere in British Columbia���the  great gold, silver and copper producing province of  the Dominion In selecting a site we hope the many  advantages offered by Nelson will not be overlooked.  Novkmhkr 16 is the date fixed for the execution  of Yip Luck, the Chinaman who murdered Chief of  Police Main, at Steveston. A telegram from Van*  couver announces that the condemned man has confessed to having murdered two others -an Indian,  whom he did away -uth at Chilliwack, and a negro:  The latter crime was perpetrated some ten years ago  near Yale, according to the murderer's story. Yip  had an accomplice in the murder of Main, but his  partner in crime, also a Chinaman, died somr weeks  previoi��\ to the trial Had his life been spared for the  gallows, he, too, might probably have been in a position to clear up some of the other murder mysteries  on record in British Columbia.  Tin-: one murder case set down for trial at the Nelson assizes resulted in the acquittal of the accused���a  little boy named Ernest Chetmweth, who was charged  with the murder ofa Chinaman.    That the verdict of  the jury, arrived  at without  leaving their box,   was  endorsed by ail in court, was evident from the plaudits  by which it was received.    During the hearing of the  case, a sensation was caused by one of the witnesses;  who testified that her husband was approached by a  Chinaman   in Rossland,  where  the  crime was committed, and offered $500 if he would aid in having the  voum* nrisoner convicted of the crime with which he  was charged      Should  not some effort  be made to  hunt" up this particular Chinaman and punish him for  this serious offence ?     There is a  very   general impression that the rounder \vs committed at the instigation of the   Highbinders or  some other society of  Chinamen, and the theory is well rounded.     The fellow who offered the $500 blood-money would doubtless be able  to throw some light on the subject,   and  he out:m to be located.  '.i'M'f  II    1  ��� (  ;, I  \Vk are pleased to note that the Grand Jury in their  presentment did not f il to call attention to the state,  the wretched state, of the Courthouse of Nelson.    At  every assizes held in  this city of late years similar  action has been taken, but without result. The judges;  on circuit have frequently complained of the accom-  ���mr-dation provided,   the members of the bar have oil  numerous occasions entered a vigorous protest, jury  men are justifiably indignant at being forced to loiter  about the hall or in the open air awaiting a call,   and  the genera! public and those more intimately interested  in the business before the court are loud in their complaints.     Surely some effort should  be made to relieve the cause of al] this trouble by providing reasonable accommodation.    The business transacted at the  courthouse is growing as the country progresses, and  it is too muehto expect that a building designed for  service in years gone by would be ample to-day.

Copeland.     A  force of men are now employed in building"'trails and  erecting winter quarters for the miners who vnlFwTTrV  there this winter.  The Emily Edith property is now employing a  force of over forty miners and development.'work is  being pushed ahead as fast as possible.  During the past season, under the management   of  Mr. Dubois, the Arlington mine,   near  Slocaii   Citv  has been developed   into  a mine.      It  is   now in   a  position   to  become   one   of   heaviest   shippers   of  silvei-lead ore   from   that  section   of   the   Slocan.  A   spur   is   being put  in from the   A/near   Slocan  and two  ore bunkers are to be  erected upon it with  a capacity of 250  tons   each.      Another large  bunker is to be  erected at the mine and the ore   is to be  handled and shipped in   bulk to   the smelter.     The  Arlington    has   already    shipped   out   Ibis-'season  420 tons of high grade ore  and .with the completion  of the new   ore bunkers it will easily  take the   first-  place amongst our shipping mines  At the Siiverboy which   adjoins the   Emily   Edith  Goup, seven miners are employed and that   property  is showing up well under development  From the Eagle.  A. L.Deveuport of Spokane,  has purchased  from  Josephine   Lord,   of  Trout   Lake,  for $1,700,   the  mineral   claims   Cable  and Ten Broek,  which are  situated near Erie.  A.

When  I was a boy, we '������Methodists looked askance  at the  young men and women of other  religious denominations who participated in the wicked pastime of dancing.    Indeed, to my early religious training on these  lines I attribute  my lack of proficiency  in the Terp-  sichorean art      I was taught to regard the dance as  the door to Hades/and even now I recollect a sermon  by a circuit rider on the death of a young woman who  caught cold at a country ball, from the effects Of which  she died.

Now that we are bribe midst of a.political fight,   1  would urge upon the campaign committee the wisdom  of preventing the orators from making long speeches.  There is-nothing in a stereotyped speech."   As a matter of fact, I could point out many instances in .vhich  speakers were  rather a detriment to a candidate than  an advantage.    Anyone whodesiresenlightenment on  the issues can get the same from the campaign literature, supplied by the political parties.      Indeed, there  is no lack of opportunities to get  " facts and figures "  Our Liberal friends have provided a rare diet for their  followers in this respect, and are using   the postofficc  to distribute it throughout the Dominion.

There is a certain class  that likes to listen to the evidence in the case of a  person tried for almost any breach of the law ; but  there are others who choose their cases. I was particularly struck with the audience assembled to listen  to the bigamy case. I do aver, and without fear of  successful contradiction, that 90 per cent, of those in  ^Court were married men. Why should this be the  c��se ? Is it possible that a large percentage of married  men hope some day to quit the present partners of  their joys* and embark on another matrimonial cruise  with some more congenial mate ? I was listening  to a discussion of the case by several married men in  iront of the court house; while the trial wis in progress Some sympathized with the bigamist ; others  thought he should be punished. No doubt, those who  espoused the cause of the offender had domestic  troubles of their own, while the happily-wedded condemned him most severely Such is life. We all  look through glasses best adapted for the peculiar  form of our own optical affliction.  It is uo* often in a British court of justice is  witnessed a demonstration similar to the one mani-  tested on the occasion of the verdict of ,fnot guilty'*  being given in the Cheuoweth case. It was a  spontaneous outburst of approval, and while every  British subject is jealous of the dignity of the court,  on this occasion no one seemed disposed to reflect on  the motive which prompted the applause. There  was never a verdict rendered in Canada which met  with more popular approval. The boy'Chenoweth,  who was accused of attempting to solve the Chinese  problem by a somewhat drastic yet effective method,  is a child of scarcely eight years of age, and is a most  attractive little fellow. It is hardly possible he could  comprehend the full import ofa confession, such as  it is alleged he made to a detective Indeed, it requires a greac stretch of imagination to believe that  a boy could discharge the gun at an object with any  precision, Anyone who has made a study of Chiusee  methods would rather incline to the belief that the  Chinaman was a victim of one of his own race.  The next attraction at  the Nelson Opera    House  will be "A Breezy Time.M     This combination  ivas  seen here last year, and gave much pleasure to those  who witnessed their  performances.     If it is  half as  ���good as laal yean it will be  well worth   patronizing.  The. habit  of driving over crossings at a three  minute gait still prevails to an alarming  extent in  Kelson      I saw aii expressman running over a little  boy at the corner qf Josephine and   Baker streets the  other day.     He did not succeed in killing the   boy,  but no doubt he will meet with greater success in his  ���nektaUempt,:and then his. lawyer will plead that it  was an accident      I hope I may get on that jury.  If so I will remain in the jury room until Doomsday,  or see that that man gets all that is coming, to him     -  -, ft  '".1  -.. ,  c*  "���:/1  l A ��J.

HEATHEN  VIEW OF CARD PLAYING.  A very-^whous and interesting leuer has been  rritteii'to a-compatriot by a'Siamese visitor to Paris,  ix$\htGutih>i*t in'which the observant Asiatic   re-  lords his impressions of card ��� playing  in the   upper  firciesoi the "French capital.    "'He Says ;  '���The French declare that they worship one God  only, but I do not believe it. For beyond the living  God to which one sees them pay daily vows, they  have several other inanimate deities to which they  sacrifice, as Ijhave remarked in one of their assemblies  where I chanced to be present. There was to be  seen a large round altar, decorated with a green cloth,  lighted from above, and surrounded^by several persons  who were seated, as we are in our domestic rites.  When I entered, one of them, who appeared to be the  priest, spread upon the altar several leaves which  he detached from a little book which he held in his,,  hand. Upon the leaves were depicted several figures,  very badly painted, which, however, seemed to be representations of several gods, for, according as they  were distributed around the circle, each of the devotees placed thereon an offering according to his devotion.
