NOTE ANH COMMENT.
Sir Kichartl Cartwright's decision lliul steamship lines innsl
linve tholr terminals ut Canadian
ports if ihey nn* in enjoy Canadian subsidies, will moot wilh
widespread approval, li is beyond ull question llie riglil thing
in do merely as u inatter uf principle, nud it cannot be expedient
io build up foreign ports lu lhe
neglecl nf our own by means of
subsidies mil uf our own pockets,
Tin' policy of the United Slnles,
besides, whether Intended nr not,
is hostile to Canada, The Iwo
countries nre drifting apart in
, their commercial relations. Canada would be glad lo maintain
lhe urns! friendly intercourse,
luit us iliis is nut lube permitted
lhe sooner we put ourselves in u
position of absolute independence lhe hi'tler il will be fur us.
A Sniilli Nonnanton minor,
named Henry Walker, bus in-
venled und patented ll safely
method uf shot tiring for mines
and similar places, using high
explosives uml composition cartridges. Mr. Walker's patenl is
tliat of a hollow needle (brass or
coppor), which is inserted in the
cartridge containing the charge,
The shni is rammed in the usual
manner, but the detonator is not
inserted in llie charge until lhe
stneming is completed. lly
means of a thin copper rod,
tipped wilh hard paper, the de*
tiiniiiiii* is passed up llie hollow
nt'i'ille. ninl placed in llie position required in llie charge, and
secured by being placed behind
ii spring uf whalebone ur cane,
which is within n paper tube, the
latter having boen previously
placed within the charge, Should
u detonator prove defective, uml
the shni I'uil iu explode, Mi*.
Walker eliiiins lo be able lu withdraw it. This is ii decided advance upon llie present unsafe
method, where u second shot is
necessary. In such cases il is
usual and necessary lu bore a
second hole, but tlie new method
will utilize the first huh', and
thus save labor. Mr. Walker
clniins in this invention to huve
reduced shot tiring in mines lo
llie minimum uf danger; in fuel,
tu huve taken away the elements
of danger—first, because the
hole is rammed before the dun
gerous detonator is inserted; and
SOCOlld, because the miller need
nut curry the detonator at all
whicli should be in lhe hands uf
lhe official sliul lirer. bringing it
alung with his electric battery
as al present in use. In the mutter uf efficiency it is also claimed
that work dune will be altogether
satisfactory, ns proved by experience. Loss composition wns
used than by llie old method,
nnd mure meterlitl dislodged.
Beyond the hollow needle, and
Ihi' paper-lipped brass rod required, the shuts can be tired at
it cosl of une halfpenny each.
Mr. McArthur, llie inventor of
the cyanide process fur lhe extraction of gold, has boon giving
liis views wilii rospecl to Hie
future supply of thul metal. He
points uut thai true mining fur
e'nlil only coiniiieneiiil ulioul llie
year 1860, and that up to lhat
time we hud only been gathering
up the detritus, as it were, alluvial deposits being merely what
had crumbled down from the
reefs. Now we are going to the
sources and attacking the auriferous rock, the extent of whicli
we know very little, while of the
depth to whicli they may descend
beneath the earth's surface we
know still less. They have been
traced for 8,000 feet, downward,
nud geology confesses its ignorance of what may lie below,
"Thero seems no limit," observes
Mr. McArthur, "to possible discoveries." Some years ago lhe
proportion of the.preolous metal
obtained from alluvial workings
was as four to one compared lo
what was won from its rooky
matrix. Now Ihese ligures are
reversed. In Russia, including
Siberia, the west coast of Africa,
British, Dutch, uml French <iui
uiu. Boino nf iiie Smiili American slnles uml Hornoo, llie llllll.
rial mil pui   is uverwholminglj
■rieuler llinn llinl fruiu lhe i I's.
which is only u thing uf yostor*
iluy. How groat nn increase In
the yield mny he oxpeuted to
luke pluee, Ihoi'oforo, ill nil Ihese
countries when llie steam engine
unil machinery I'm* crushing are
hrotight tu boar upon llie reel's,
uf whicli the alluvial gold is llu*
mere debris? "Gold milling."
concludes Mr, McArthur, "Is
jusl beginning lu luke lhe pluee
thut coppor oi' lend mining bus
occupied for centuries, Hue bus
uu more reason toduiilii the continuance of gold reefs llinn une
has to doubt the continuance ul
other metalliferous mines, No
une can suy whut quantities .if
gold may lie concealed in lhe
more central parts uf the earth,
nurwhni improved means science
muy lind fur extracting it from
great depths." A belief prevails
iu some scientific quarters thai
ut a certain depth gold exists iu
vusi masses as a virgin ore, and
muy be hewn mil like coul.
The Mining Record is of the
opinion llial it is more than probable thai in lhe course uf the
nexl few years East Kootenay
will rank wilh West Kootenuy in
importance, This section uf tlie
Province is now being opened
up very rapidly, und the building uf ihe Crow's Nest Railway
will naturally hasten tlie development nf ils resources.
in New Zealand the Govern
ment has for some years past
adopted a more enlightened system of lousing llie vacant lands
uf the colony, instead of grant
ing them away outright, and su
retaining hold uf this valuable
asset uf the people. In Aus-
tralia the same plan is now tried
wilii sheep farms with tlie greatest success mul satisfaction lo ull
parties concerned. The lands
remain iu the ownership of the
people, a constant revenue is derived from llie rent for llie use
uf them, mul when llie lenses full
in, tenants who are unsatisfactory in any way cun be removed.
This is Iiie mosl ancient, us well
us the most sensible method uf
lund tenure. The idea uf possession of luml hy purchase is
comparatively modern. All over
Europe, until the end of lhe
Middle Aages, land wns held by
leiiiiuis wlm paid for the use of
it in military service, and to this
day the ultimate possession of
land in England is vested in the
Crown, When tho Long Parliament abolished feudal privileges
in England, Ihey made n great
stroke fur liberty, but with Hie
privileges the responsibilities
disappeared us well, nnd standing armies and national debts
sunn began to figure in history.
A return to the idea uf luiul us
the possessions of the whole
people, the exclusive use nf a
portion uf which is ui.ly to be
acquired by lease and not by
purchase, bus been found a powerful factor in solving the mod-
,ern social problem in othor colonies of the Empire, and there
seems nn reason why this Province shuiild nol follow their example with tlie bulance nf her
Crown domain still in her hands.
—Ex.
The following "Reflections"
from the Grand Pork Miner, were
worked up by a contemplation
of the facts in the recent horsewhipping case in Unit city: "For
the past year the Miner lias ever
proclaimed to tho civilized world
that Grand Porks is the lending
city in tho Kettle River and
Boundary Creek districts, and
we still maintain our position,
Sin- i.s lirsl in everything, second
iu untiling, lhe gateway In everywhere, whole ling or none, und
the people be d- il. Firs) to incorporate; lirsl lo linve a red hot
city election; first tu fire city
officers by ihe 'One, two, three,
out goes lie' system; first to have
n genuine social scandal in high
life; lirst to enjoy the notoriety
occasioned by a public horsewhipping, and will be the first
to have waterworks, electric
lights, smelter, and a railroad;
the only town in tlie district
whoro everybody is out after
everybody else with a cheese
knife, and In fact she is a red
hot luniale from the word go,
Oh, the future of this town is
assured, only let us whuup'cr up!
Throw conventlonalites and customs to the winds! Let sensationalism and excitement reign!
Turn on the red and green tires
and keep tilings staling—that's
all we've gol lo ilu In be saved."
TOOK HER BEVUNGE.

Mrs. ,Inu. A. Muiily, wife of
ihe Mayor of Grand Porks, li.
0.) Ims iniule horsolf notorious
by un attack wilh a horsewhip
on Charles ('innings, u prominent ciii/.eii of thut town. Do-
scribing lhe affair lhe Miner
says:
"Mr, ('innings comes to his
olliee between 8 and 0 o'clock,
ind his l'liule lends Ilim,past the
Manly resilience. Thursday
morning Mrs. Manly was no
iloiibi watching for him, I'm- no
sooner had lie passed the house
Ihan she sallied forth und followed him in nn unconcerned
manner- but who knows whul
emotions are masked by a smiling face mnl jaunty step? Sin*
was dressed in a neat walking
costume ami carried in her hand
u paper suck. When Mr. Cumings wns near the west end of
the bridge she closed in on him,
swiftly, silently, und unheard,
Drawing from lhe paper sack a
rawhide whip she struck Mr.
Cumings four blows over the
bend and shoulders before he recovered from his surprise sufficiently lo attempt any defence.
He attempted to icine Hie whip
bul. before he succeeded in doing
so she struck him once more
across the face. Then he broke
the whip, threw it to the ground
mul held her wrists.
"Immediately across the street
from where the matinee occurred
John A. Manly, with his two
brothers 'Due' and 'Al,'were discussing the waterworks problem
with Contractor Davies, und numerous other residents were on
the main street crossing of the
town and were witnesses to tlie
affair. When the first blow was
struck the Mayor turned his
back unconcernedly and Doctor
Manly started for the scene
of the one-sided combat. Mrs.
Manly, when her wrists were
secured, began vigorously kicking at the shins of her captor,
exclaiming "If I ever catch you
telling John Manly anything
about me again I'll shoot yuu."
The fracas wns ended by Doctor
Manly escorting his sister-in-law
In I  home, and Mr. Cumings
continuing  on   liis way In his
ottice.
"Thedisgraceful affair i.s the
culmination of lhe rumois thai
I have been rife for several months
j concerning the family affairs of
I the Mayor's household, Mrs.
Manly claims that Cumings had
endeavored to sully her good
name by connecting il witli that
of J. A. Altaian, erstwhile city
clerk, solicitor, returning officer,
member of the licensing board,
etc., in a manlier calculated to
arouse suspicion as to her chastity, and that he had kept her
husband, who was absent in
Rossland, misinformed regard
ing her actions witli Mr. Aik-
liiau, and had otherwise meddled
witli her family affairs.
Mr. Cumings disclaims any r
sponsibility fur the rumors
which were afloat, and says that
far from circulating such rumors
he has, when lhe sulijeel was
broached in conversation, always
refused lo discuss il. He claims
to have finally advised Hie Mayor
uf what he believed to be the
true status of affairs, for the
sole purpose of having a stop
put to the gossip whicli wus being indulged in in the town and
whicli was doing the Mayor an
injury.

ii of galena and carbonates as is
presented in the North Star.
i 'andles in hand we docohdod
the different shafts and treaded
the  various  tunnels   and   cms,
ah.mt 2, i feet ia all. And such
a sight! ll beggars description,
Rarely is so greal n privilege ac-'
corded mortal man. for, if Dr.
Emmen's thoory of the transmutation of silver into gold lie correct, then il requires iioextrnva-
gam stretch of tho imagination
to  perceive ihal  wo   actually
walked the "gulden streets."
When wo descended a shaft we
wenl down into a silver cup;
when wo stood ou the bottom 11
silver pavement kissed our feel,
and when we traversed u tunnel |
we walked through a silver tube.
Forty feet beneath lhe surface,
imbedded in solid galena, lie two
petrified trees, forming a cornice to one of the subterranean
passages. One tree is about 24
inches the other 12 inches in diameter. They lie parallel, about
ii inches apart, and nre traceable
i() feet. The ridges in the bark
and the grain of llie wood are
perfectly preserved, us specimens iu your correspondent's
posession will verify. Turning
oul of tlie main tunnel wo entered a chamber 60 feet in length, it
cross-cut through solid silver
lead, terminating in a solid
gulenn face. Retracing our steps
we entered another large vault
encased with the sume material,
but whose ceiling is frescoed
with moss-silver and crystals
lhat sparkle like diamonds in
llie candle light, uud yel the former are more sensitive lo the
touch than the powder on a
lady's cheek. Next wo scrambled over u "hog's back" of dior-
ile that forces itself   among  the
bullion uud decent! into another
excavation witli dump mud lloor
und wells, a cavern of carbonates,
In another drift we cnnie upon
several men at work wilh pick
and shovel digging out these deposils of carbonates, or decayed
ore, und wheeling il into the
ore house, To the inexperienced
this would he so much mud, bul
to the miner who is onto liis job
it is worth more llinn $100 lo the
ton. Al, first if was thought lo
lie useless elny, Illld us such was
dumped aside, bul an assay
showed ils VtthlO, iiiid now it is
