Dear Sir:- -
Although, as a rule, il is nol
polite to answer anonymous correspondence, it hardly scums fair
to allow "Old timer" to remain
longer in his state of ignorance.
In tho lirst place ho ought lo
understand the dlToronue between
the capitalizalioii-of a company
and the cash or bond price of a
Mm.
Also, Mr. Ellon referred, in
lis letter, solely to those claims,
on which no development work
was done, and "Old timer" immediately runs into an account
of claims, on which the prospectors time and money have been
spent, besides a great deal of
perfectly irrevolant inatter concerning the economic condition
of a prospectors life.
Mr. Elton was especially asked
how Eastern people viewed Kootenay? and his answer including
tho high prices asked for undeveloped property was perfectly
correct, as all our correspondence
tells us. Hu is not stating his
own opinion at all, but is merely
expressing in words the impression left on his mind by his
trip.
have noticed, amongst pros
pectoris, that the longer a man
prospects, the less ho asks for
his discovery; it is generally a
new hand that luts his fancy run
away with him.
It seems to mo, that, ai the
present point of our history, it
would pay best lo put prospeoting on the same basis as store-
keeping, viz nuick sales and
reasonable returns.
Tlie advantage accruing to us,
us brokers, on large prices is so
evident lhat 1 wonder that "Old
timer" dous not seo that the advise given by Mr. Elton is hardly
in accordance with our business,
and solely in the interests of the

EXCELLENT REASONS
THEREFOR
Land of the Free Must. Not Be
Closed to Foreigners Seeking Homes and Sustenance.
Washington-Tile president today sent to the house the following message vetoing the immigration bill:    "To the House of
Representatives:      I   herewith
return without approval house
bill No, 7864, entitled 'An net to
amend the immigration laws cf
the United States.'   By the lirst
section of this bill it is proposed
to amend section 1 of the act of
March 1891, relating to immigration, by adding to the classes of
aliens thereby excluded from ihe
United Slates the following: 'All
persons physically capable and
over 10 years of age who can not
read   and   write   the  English
language or some otlier language
but a person not so able to road
and write who is over [i0 years
of ago und is u parent or grandparent of a qualiliod immigrant
over 2.1 yours of age, and capable
of supporting such parent or
grandparent,   mny   uucompiniy
such Immigrant, or sueh parent
or grandparent may he sent foi'
and come to join the family of n
child or grandchild over L'l years
of age similarly qualiliod and
capable, and a wife and minor
child not so able to read and
write may accompany or be sent
for and come and join the husband or parent similarly qualiliod
lind enpnlile.'
.1  l.'.VIIIt'Al, llUPAUTI'UE.
"A radical departure from our
national policy relating to immigration is here presented, Heretofore we have welcomed all who
came to us from other lands except those whose moral or physical condition or history betokens
danger to our national welfare
and safety, relying upon the
Zealous watchfulness of our people  to  prevent  injury  to  our
ers deprives of
to those  who;
i are better fit-ted than they  ihe i
j privilege of earning their lived-j
j hood, This unfortunate condition
j is certainly presented when any
j who are wilting to labor are uii-
j employed, but .so far as thi.!, con-
| diliou  now  exists  among   our
I people it must be confessed that
lit is the fesult of phenomenal!
business depression and the stag-.
nation of all enterprises iu which
labor is a factor. With the advent
Of settled  and wholesome and •

misfortune Of unemployed labor!
should to a great extent, at least,:
be remedied.   If it continues, its
natural consequence must be to!

to our oil les of foreign laborers i

THE EGG
OF  THE  CROW'S
NEST.    '
ON LtLlTEltACY.
It is proposed by the bill under
consideration to meet the alleged
difficulties of the. situation by establishing an educational test by
which thu right of a foreigner
to mako liis home with us shall
be determined: If nny particular
element of our illiterate immigrant is to bo feared for other
causes than illiteracy, those
causes should be dealt with directly instead of making' illiteracy
the pretext of exclusion to the
detriment of other illiterate immigrants against whom, tho real
cause of complaint can not be
alleged.
Our despatches during the past
fortnight shew a seeming difference of opinion at Ottawa as to
the construction of tlie Crow's
Nest Puss Railway, The matter
had been intrusted to the subcommittee of the Cabinet, consisting of Mr. Blair. Sir Oliver
Mowat and Mr, Sifton, It was
reported that while Mr. Blair
was anxious that the government
should build and operate the
road, his colleagues were opposed
to his views, believing that tho
road should be built and operated
by the C. P. R. The Globe,
which is the official organ of the
Government, has now come out
plainly for C. P. R, construction,
and is followed by a suggestive
editorial iu the Free Press, in
which, although the construction
of the road by the C. P. R. is not
advocated in so many words, the
moaning is obvious. The
Winnipeg Tribune has also received an inspiration which
causes it to believe that tho road
could bo best constructed by the
big transcontinental lino. Meanwhile the C. P. R. hits purchased

suppose, in placing this order in

This announcement is likely to
be welcomed by promoters of
Brilisli Columbia smelting propositions, for Ibe change, if it
goes into effect, will greatly on-
bunco their chances of success.
At prbsont one of the chief obstacles in the way of carrying on
of smelting operations in the
Kootenay is the fact thai: the
duly on galena ores is so much
lower than that of lead bullion
that a premium is put upon the
shipment of tlie product of the
Slocan   mines  to tlio reduction

The National Matte Smelter.
A praotioal, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide ore,
such as nickel, copper, gold, and
silver ores, in localities whore
load ores and fuel are scarce and
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
water jacketed Matte Smelter
has been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
boen thoroughly tested on various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 2 to 80
tons per day. lt is the simplest
method of gold and silver o'ro
matting, anil concentrating that
is known to-day.
It requires no extraordinary
skill, no loud ores, no fluxing
material, and no fuel for the smeller aftor it is started. The sulphor in the ore is its natural
t'uol only, and ils oost lias no
comparison with any othor process of concoutrating,
We nro prepared to furnish any
size or capacity plant complete
to substantial mining people, set
it up and furnish our mon to run
it for thorn on easy payments.
