Steele Mining Division of East
Kootenay District, Province of
British Columbia, hereby wish to
impress upon tho Provincial Government the rapidly growing importance of this section, and respectfully request that thoy
should appoint a resident Gold
Commissioner, with the powers
of a Stipendiary Magistrate, And
we would humbly suggest that
J.F. Armstrong Esq, tbo present
government agent for the district
receive, the appointment. And
further, owing to tbo rapid in-
llux of people into this part of
the country, and the absolute necessity there is for proper goal
accommodations, tliat an entirely
new gaol and court house Inbuilt, as the present buildings
are utterly unfit for tlie purpose

a proper mail service southwards
to connect wilh ihe weekly mail

communication with tin- various
mining towns in the western
stales than oan possibly bo obtained by way of ihe present
mule to Golden. Tho Post Office
at Tobacco plains is six. miles
from the boundary line in Mont,
and parties in the United States
are corresponding with a view
toward malting connection at
Tobacco plains with a Canadian
mail. Further wo wish to suggest that if the Government has
the welfare of the country at
heart, they should, if they cannot take any action in the matter
themselves, at least urge upon
Iho Provincial Government the
necessity foi' an appropriation or
grant being made nt the earliest
possible moment, towards the.

(1 rent reliance was plncotl
upon (leu. Maceo, our beloved
:tinimaniler, nnd it was thought
he I'liuld not only defeat the enemy in the provinoe but finally
make a junction With Gomez, but
I know, and our friends should
have known, also four, or live or
ten thousand men, poorly armed
and most of the time with but
scanty ammunition oould not
prevail against 50,000 well armed
and well fed corps, One or two
small expeditions landed, one at
Corrientes Buy, but otherwise
for ten months yvo have been depending upon our strategy and
knowledge of the province to
keep us out of the pitched battle
Speaking with reference to the
cannon, I wish it could be communicated to our friends in the
United States, cannon are more
in the way to ourselves than the
enemy iu this province. In the
first place they are inconvenient
to take about over the hills,
through the lowland of Manigua
and among the woods. The cannon wo have represents an outlay of $1,000 or $5,000 and yet,
almost one thousand rifles could
be purchased for that sum.
TO ATTACK HAVANA.
"Of course when wo are in a
position to assault Havana,
heavy guns will be a necessity.
Do you expect to soon? No; not
very soon, about the end of the
winter, I hope. Thore is certainly nothing to be gained by making statements that are untrue or
that I. myself do not believe in.
It would be wrong for me to give
our friends in the United States
tlie impression that we are per
fectly able lo tako care of ourselves no matter what happens,
but as a matter fact we are nol
in need of men at all, The whole
native population is with us and
I am confident an army of 50,000
could bo placed in Havana province before the winter is ovor if
we had arms and ammunition,
Our Cubans are bravo and patriotic and willing lo die for our republic, but they are not crazy
enough to face antinomy's bullets
with empty hands, Tell the
American people to givo us ten
thousand rilles and a supply of
catridgos and I. will whip hell
and Weyler and his trocha before
the winter ends."
WlilVLEK TAKES Tlllll PIELD,
lavana-Captain General Weyler
accompanied by his stall', started
for the Held at H o'clock this
morning. The general took a
carriage from his palace to tho
outskirts of the city whore he
mounted, a horse and rode in the
direction of San ,'Joso do Lais

SPAIN'S   FUTURE.
It looks as if the Spanish revolution wore coming at last. It
lias been duo any lime those four
years. All that time—say the
best informed bend waiters—Tha
Queen Utigei.it lias had her boxes
piickod riiaily foi- the nexl, train
to Vienna,. Nothing hits starved
oil' ihn Inovilablo except a sportsmanlike reeling on ihe part of
lln' Bopublicans lhat tho wretched Monarchists ought to bo
allowed a little moro time for
I'liibi-zzliiiiiont before they go
into private life. But now Cuba
is breaking the Spaniard's back.
Iihiibi'zzleiiicnl, is going beyond
Iho rules of the game, Spain is
bled to tho last peseta, and yet
the troops are not only unsuccessful, but hungry and naked.
If this goes on there will be nothing left for tho next constitution
to embezzle. Therefore, nothing
would surprise us less than barricades in Madrid. London Daily
Mail,
SHE CALLED:
Sho came up the steps three at
a time, and sailed into the sanctum like a whirlwind. Without
noticing tlio tender of a chair,
she brought her parachute down
on llio desk with a bang.and asked: " Is this the printing olliee''"
" Yes, ma'am,"
"I want to stop my paper. "
" All right, madam,"
" Stop it right away, too," she
continued, mailing another vicious whack at the desk with hor
faded sunshade.
"It's stopped," said the editor
as he made a blue lino through
her husbands name on tho subscription list.

party will remain In tlio Held at
least six weeks for the purpose
of making a survey for a railroad
froth Duck crook lo a point opposite Balfour. This is the route
of tlm main Hue of Iho Crow's
Nest Pass railway and is the second section of location by the C,
P. R. officials, the lirst section
being along tbe south shore of
tho outlet from Nelson to a point
opposite Balfour, which was
made some time ago. The completion of the work now being
done will give Iio connecting

A new Barney Barnato has

He is in St. Paul now, but Sl.
Paul cannot keep him, because
Iio is going to London, anil London may bo turned upside down
again, just as il wns when lln
original Barney did Ihe rocket

Tho new Barney .has a big brown
satchel full of rocks, a pocket
full of bonds nnd a head full of
minos. He will discharge the
contents of his head into the
ears of sympathetic Britishers,
show them the rocks and sell
them the bonds. Tliat is why
he is going to London to—to sell
the bonds.

which he likes so well that he is
going back to London to tell his

This Port Steele country, Mr,
Venosta says, is not groat shucks
al present, but it has wonderful
possibilities, anil he is confident,
if lie has good luck with the
bonds, that within.a year the
multitudes will be clamoring for
Kootenay. Fort Steele itself has
about (300 people. Only one mine
is in operation at present, the
North Star. But the region
about Port Steele is full of mining claims merely waiting for the
bonds to be sold to yield up their
wealth of gold, silver, copper and
lead. In the Perry creek country
where Mr, Venosta has staked
out his.Iohannesborg.sixty mines
have been located in which tho
ore will yield gold from a trace
to 82i!>0 a ton. Then thero are [ ■
other regions, Weaver creek and
other creeks, all of them full of
mining claims, where untold
wealth may be had for the
digging, or the purchase of
bonds. And there are no Boers

Another defeat for the Spanish
is reported from Polanos, in the
southern part of Havana province, Tho place lias a thousand
inhabitants, is woll fortified, and
has a Spanish garrison of 000
men, wilh one field piece.    Lieu
tenant  Colonel   Hernandez,   in
command    of    500    insurgent
cavalry made a dash al tho town
while the troops were  at   the
church  celebrating  some local
holiday.   Before they could form
the insurgents had possession of
the blockhouse, the cannon was
trained on the church, and before
tlie Spanish were hardly aware
of what was the trouble solid
shot came hurling through its
wells, while cries of "Cuba libre'
tilled the air.   Out they pushed,
only to fall before a deadly volley
from a strong force posted behind some neighboring houses.
Colonel   Muncio,   the   Spanish
officer, bravely rallied his men,
but as they formed for a charge
he fell with a dozen balls through
him.    The second iii command
look- his place, but ho too fell iu
a seconds' time, the sharpshooters of Hernandez dealing death
with a rapidity that made the
troops panicstrickon. They made
one more attempt to charge llio
blockhouse,    but    Hernandez's
cavalry reserve dashed at them
sweeping lh rough their ranks,
culling a bloody path, with their
machetes.    They   turned,   and
again they  came  through  the
crowded ranks of the Spanish,
carrying death in their tracks,
though   many   empty   saddles
spoke for lite bravery  of  the
Spanish troops.    The Spanish
then retired,   it being a rout,
though a portion stubbornly protected their rear, making stands
until forced to retire by Hernandez's florae charges,   After pursuing them nearly to Cajaco, on
the coast, they withdrew.   They
burned the forts at Palamos. The
insurgents secured 1100 stands
of arms and ono cannon, §1500 in
gold and §-5000 in paper money.
They  secured  valuable papers
belonging to the Spanish commissary.
Havana officials know of the
battle but have kept it suppressed, and the palace officials say
that the place has been evacuated,
barisin. Tlie Cubans are relying
on being favored by McKinley,
nnd expect, immediately on his
inauguration, In- will recognize
belligerency, if nol their independence.
Earthquake in Mexico.
Harvey gives a graphic account
of the capture of Santa Clara by
the insurgents, whore the utmost
gallantry was displayed, and tho
Spanish were overcome by the
magnificent valor of the patriots.
Harvey says it was told him in
the Cuban camp that Maceo had
his lower jaw shot away, but; was
ilive and recuperating. General
Gomez is not treating for peace,
and, although there is a pence
party among the Cubans, it is a
small one.
The capture of the town of
Agtitec by the Cubans was a
brilliant piece of work. Three
thousand Spaniards held the
place, but the Cubans showed
better generalship.
Capture of Santa Clara.
At Santa Clara the Cubans took
and held the town just long
enough to ruin it. Harvey does
not consider there is any decided
prospect of victory on either
side.
Earthquakes continue in tlie
state of Oaxaoa and that city has
been shaken severely by the
shocks. Scientists believe a volcano is forming among Iho hills,
and tho continued seismic disturbances have excited alarm in
several districts, while on the
Pacilic coast the ocean is in a
continual commotion caused by
submarine explosions sending
hugo waves on the shore and
terrifying the fishermen, who
still boldly venture out.

A praotioal, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide oro,
such as nickel, copper, gold, and
silver ores, in localities where
lead ores and fuel are scarce nnd
almost unattainable, om- pyritie,
water jacketed Matte Smeller
has been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
been thoroughly tested ou various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 2 to so
tons por day, 11 is ihe simplest
method of gold and silver oro
ailing, anil concentrating ihal
is known to-day,
It requires noexlrnordiliiiry
skill, no lead ores, no fluxing
material) and no fuel fur the.smeller after it Is started, The sulphor in the ore is its natural
fuel only, and ils eosl has no
comparison with any oilier process of concentrating,
We aro prepared lo furnish any
