It is about time something was

and operations will-commence as
soon as the season will penult.

We wish to draw the attention

as a company to do business as
Mining Brokers and Commission
Agents. We learn lhat they
wish to sell property on commission only, Unit no options given

prices.' Every man with a claim
fur sale should leave a description of such with price etc. on
the books of tho company as it
is the Intention to have agents in
London. New York, Chicago, St.
Paul, Montreal and Toronto,
Then our examiner will assure
that the description of the claims
aro correct, so that they will
have great opportunities for the
disposal of mining property, and
when wo tako into consideration tho liitiil absence oi
any such facilities in favor
of the Pros]lectors of this section heretofore. We trust that

iiy mines may ho operated more
onvcnieiitly than by any other
system; bettor jyork bo ell'ectod,
and  greater  economy induced.
Coal and metal mine operators
are animated by iiq sentimental
inclinations  in  favor,  pi  qldor
methods. It is simply a t|uos;(,jon
with thoiii of an outlay and resultant proti Is, and tho electricity
driven apparatus is everywhere
slowly but effectually displacing
apparatus operated by steam or
compressed air.   Sinoc the General Electric company lirst entered the hold it has kept stoadily
in view tho improvement of its
electrically operated mining apparatus and its adaptation to the
peculiar conditions of the mining
industry. Tho slow speed motors
are recent developments in llie
motor lino mado hy the company
in question and designed for uso
on direct-current circuits,    For
outputs greater than five horse
power, thoy present decided advantages over motors of bipolar
typo.   Thoy are compactly built
and admit of direct combination
with machinery without increasing the space occupied to any
great extent.   They operate at
slowor speed thnn any other mo
ter of similar capacity yet built,
and though reduction of spend
must necessarily imply incrniise
of weight, yol in this ease il is
amply compensated for by economy of material olfectod by the
adoption of tho four polo typo.
Tlie frames and fields aro of
special soft cast stool, which,
possessing high magnetic preini'-
ability, allow of the construction
of a motor lighter  than other
motors of the same output al.
higher  speed,    The ai'iiiutiires
are thoroughly ventilated ; and
the windings of cupper wire, first
formed and insulated, are embedded in slots in tho arinature core,
und bound securely on the projecting llaiige uf the iiniialm'o
spider.   The coils can be easily
removed and replaced;  the Insulation Is the excellent result of
years of experience.    Tin.' machines  are  spai'ldess,   und thu
load can bo varied from nothing
to full liiad without the necessity
of shifting tliu brushes,    Precautions are  taken  to prevent
any tendency on Iho part of the

k.% A   LUNATIC    BALL,
As this story traveled in a
„ roundabout way il may
have been elaborated and built
up before il came to hand, but
llie facts, as nearly as thoy can
bu lqarned, are about as follows i
Mr. Melton, a young man Interested in the lumber trade,
traveled on a suburban train one
Friday night to attend the weekly
dance at the asylum for the insane,
Mr, Melton is constantly longing for "experiences." He would
rather look at an opium joint
than it donation party, and would
rather go slumming than attend
it Sunday school picnic. The
bull nt the insane asylum appealed to his love for the picturesque,
LoWory, the politican, had promised lo take him out, and Melton
had not allowed him to forgot
his promise.
Lowery came aboard the train
lit one of tin! stations on the Way
but, and tho llvo were Warmly
Welcomed When thoy arrived at
tho asylum, for Itlis Lowery was
a companionable man Of Considerable intlueiicbi'.
As Melton Stood In the doorway of tlici ballroom and glanced
itt the rows of woll behaved and
rather abashed people" against
the Wali, he could Scarcely believe lib wiis so llill'drbnt from
the others. He reflected Unit if
he were to arise some morning
and tell the1 Other boarder's' that
he was the emperor of China and

"1 want you! to dance this

is that they stand around and

Molton found hiinsolf staring
ni a very pretty girl wlm relumed liis gnsio in n half frightened
milliner.
His head brazed, and he never
before was so much in want of a
topic. How was he to begin a
conversation wilh a young woman
wliu might fancy him to bo the
prince who had como to rescue
her from the tower,
" Dp you dance?" he asked in
a sudden desperation,
She gave it .start, and he im
ugiued that she shrunk back a
little.
"I'd rather not," said she,
timidly,
"Well, then, let's sit over here
in the corner, and wateh the
others.'1
They found au out-of-the:way
place, and Melton, who had recovered a little, remembered the
instructions given him by the
superintendent!
" These dances are very pleasant little affairs," said he, "They
seem to he attended by an agree1
able lot of people;''
"I think It's a good idea to
havo thenij" said she, "You
know most of those people, of
course;"
"I've nlet a number of them,'1
he replied.
"You like Mr. LticaSj don't
you?"
"Very well', indeed: Nice
fellow."
"He didn't tell you, did he
that I was a cousin of his?"
Mr. Molton began to suspect
tho nature of her delusion. He
resolved to be diplomatic.
"Oh, yes; I knew that;" he
said; "So you're itcoiishi of Mr;
Lucas?"
"Yes; I'm here visiting him.
I've been here about two weeks.
Mrs: Lucas is so good to all ihe
people here, Isn't she?"
' 'Yes; indeed; She's Very considerate;"
Melton now Understood thb
situation: This girl did not
know that she was in. an lisylum.
They had told her that She was
a Visitor.
"It's a nice place to come for it
visit;" said he. "I clime oUt here
witli a friend of mine; a gentleman named Lowery! I live in
Chicago;"
"Oh,  yes.     'Woll;  i'hi Sure'1
you'll like it oillliere."
, "I'm sorry I can't stay longei',
I'm going back to towii tonight
on the late train.'"
Doing away tonight?"
Yes, I have to go to Milwaukee In tho morning."
"Why do you have tb go!
there?"
';I'm gohig to see iibbi.it a deal

hardwood lumber tip there!"
How milch?" she asked.

I' THE C.P.K. AM) KOOTENAY
Prom an interview with Sir
William Vim Home published by
a contemporary il is evident the
Canadian Pacitic Railway Company are fully alive to the importance of the Kootenay trade. Wo
never for one moment supposed
anything else, although wo, like
others, were inclined lo wonder
why the company did not show
more activity in building into the
district. It seems from what Sir
William said the other day while
in Vancouver that tho Canadian
Pacific people have been quietly
laying their plans and before the
close of another year they will
be engaged in great railway undertakings in various parts of
Kootenay. In the first place the
Crow's Nest Pass road will receive their attention and iti connection with it a number of
branch lines that are projected
Will be built to tap the different
mining camps. The eust of
building these short lines will in
the aggregate amount in all
probability to as much as that of
the main line, and as the Crow's
Nest Pass Railway would be almost useless without these feeders it is of the utmost importance
that they should be built.
It has been urged in more than
one quarter that the Crow's Nest
Pass. Railroad should be built
and operated by the Government.
We do not share that opinion because it would mean delay and
incompleteness. The experience
which the country had with
government construction of the
Canadian Pacific itself does not
encourage us to hope that things
would be any better with the
Crow's Nest Pass line. Besides
this, who would build llie feeders
already referred to? It is safe
to say that the government
would nut, al least for somo
years, anil in the moaiiHnio the
Kootenay would suffer from the
delay.
The work, of course, might he
done by an indeponiliinl company
lint tbe finding of the capitalists
to undertake the work and the
linaiicing of it; would moan delay
with a possibility of failure,
Wo want the. Crow's Nest Puss
Railway just, as soon as il can be
buill, and we want il to lap every
mining camp tributary lo it. The
only way that this can be dono
Without delay is by having sumo
large corporation like the C.P.R,
do the work. Some people think
tliat if the hitler should build the
ruad high rains would bo the result, bul the Government can
easily provide against this by
arranging the matter beforehand
when agreeing to aid the work.
The Government of today at
Ottawa may be relied on to look
after the best Interests of the
people, and lh giving the building of the Crow's Nest Pass railway to the C. P. B. they may be
trusted to seo the public properly
guarded in any steps they
lake,
It has become tlie fashion in
Rome quartet's to growl againsl
Ihe ('. P. B., and HO doubt there
is:some cause for il. A gre.t!
corporation like It can hardly
please everybody, bul Canada us
a whole may justly be proud ol
its nnliiinal ruad and take pi'idi
in tbe way il has beon managed.
If the grumblers will only take a
look across the border and see
the condition todayofnini .tenths
of the railways there and compare Ihem with the Canadian
Pacific Ihey Will see that over
the boundary it Is mismanagement, robbery and bankruptcy,
while with "our wind" it. is good
management and solvency,
Tu come buck to the Kuiileniiy,

The   Americans   Have  a   New
Sensation.
They Are Celling Their Naval
Forces in Shape Por a Threatened War With Spain- American Friendliness to the Cuban
Cause the Pretext for Hostility.
Washington—The interest in
the arbitration proceedings between England and the United
States over the Venezuelan boundary dispute has now subsided.
The sensation of the hour is now-
caused by the news that this
country is putting its naval forces in readiness for a threatened
war with Spain. The announcement is that llie administration
is extremely fearful that the
Madrid Government is on the
point of committing some hostile
act against the United States,
using as a pretext the friendly
feeling uf the Americans for the
cause of tlie Cubans.

nger Hays nf tlio Grand Trunk
railway, tvho lias Jusl returned
from St. Louis, expresses tho
opinion that the next president
of the United Slates will do his
best to promote friendly relations between the United States
and Canada, "1 think McKin-
loy's administration," said Mr.
Hays, "will he strictly a business
one and will be fully alive to any
advantages to bo obtained from
a reciprocity treaty, and as is in
fact Indicated in their platform
they will be willing to negotiate
such a treaty. It seems lo me
there must be many directions in
which it would be mutually advantageous. Canadian farmers
Would have a wider market for
their agricultural products, pout-
t'.-y, eggs, butter and cheese.
American coal miners would bo
afforded mure ready access in
the interest of Canadian railroads
