The price on a plug of tobacco bus  gone up 5c. unci yet the; Canadian  tobacco inanuj'ticturcrs are closing  their works on account, of tho ttirilf.  The reason of this of course is ti new  exise duly on the raw leaf of 11 cents  per pound. The industry is killed, tho  the American tobueco manufacturer  reaps tlie benefit of the market, and  Canadian smokers pay the piper. This  is probably one of tbe ideas imported  into the tariff from "'free trtide as  they have it in England." by the  Premier. The fact that with tbe  exception of the excise duty on what  he drinks and smokes the British  working man is not called upon to  contribuie * anything nt. till - to the  revenues of the Unite-.! Kingdom has  been left out of consideration.  0HAS. R. CARLYON,  BARRISTER-AT-LAW,  SOLICITOR,  AND NOTARY PUBLIC.  narOFFICB :   Mail building, Itevelstoke. B.C.

Time Inspector  Our excellent -contemporary, the  Province is of the opinion that it  would be a good idea to conduct the  next provincial election em parly lines.  The idea probably is to dub the present government at Victoria Conservative, and so loud 'ill its mistakes  and mismanagement on to the shoulders of that party. Then further as  they are bound to be swept out of  existence at tlie. next election, there  would be another grand opportunity  for a Liberal victory, and that side of  the house will gain nil the prestige of  straightening out the uiT.-iirs of the  province and."establishing an honest  and effective administration. Tlie  scheme is it trifle too transparent, and  any attempt made by partizunn of the  present Dominion government to  carry it out. will hamper the province  in its efforts to secure n decent administration of its affairs tit the next  election.  The declaration of it.feeling among  the Le Koie directors in favor of building it smelter ut Northport across the  line, has naturally excited a good deal  of opposition at Kossland, a feeling  whicli is shared by the whole, of Kootenay. We want to see our ores smelted in our own country.' It is probable  that nothing would so stimulate the  establishment of smelters, n Western  Canada as a stiff export duty or. ores,  ti point which should- be urged iipo'n  the attention of our British Columbian  representative's before the tariff; is  settled.

A well known  local mining' syndicate has already  subscribed for 500 copies. The issue  will consist of 10,000 copies nnd will be  of the greatest value in calling attention to the magnificent resources of  tbissectionof West Kootenay.now beginning to rist; into such prominence.  We* solicit tbe co-operation anel patronage of evui-y business and mining  man in the district to ensure the  success of this undertaking, which  will be the first attempt on any considerable, scale to bring the country  tributary to Revelstoke as a whole  before the attention of the outside  public.

If young Englishmen are desirous of  going into the gold mines, the best  way for them is tei take the Canadian  Pacific Railway to Revelstoke, in British Columbia. It .is 1475 fees above  sea level, and is 2527 miles west of  Montreal. It is on the Columbia river  which is'1050 feet lower than when it  is crossed at Donald, a charmingly situated town in the shadow of the Sel-  kirks, and also an important centre for  outfitting miners engaged in the gold-  fields. At Revelstoke the Columbia  river is navigable for 200 miles. About  twelve miles from Revelstoke it expands into the Arrow Lakes. If a trip  was taken from here to Robson, a distance of 165 miles, some beautiful  scenery would be found.���������Liverpool  Mercurv.

Donald, May 17.���������The buzuui' held  by lhe Luilies j\id of St. Peter's church  in tlie I. 0. O. F. hull lust Wednesday  turned out very .successfully, both  financially and otherwise, the net  profits being some $00 and the attendance above the average. For those  who nppreciiile music, a very nice programme had been arranged by Mrs. J.  Allan. Tlie first item being an instru  menial duet by Mrs. J. Allan and Miss  Florence Sprnggo. "Irs. .1. C. Pitts,  Donald's favorite, then sang in her  usually masterly style, followed by it  waltz by Chopin by Mrs. J.Allan.  Miss Behan then favored the audience  with oneof Slielley'sjinusterpieces, and  the splendid way in which she handled * it was much appreciated. Br.  Proctor cbunged tho programme by u  violin solo, which also litid a good  hearing. The mnsii:;il entertainment  then ended up with a duet by Mrs. J.  C. Pitts and Miss Alice Behan, whicli  without hesitation may be easily pro"  nonnced one of the nicest things heard  in Donald for a long while. Everybody was ir, such n good humor that it  was decided to wind up the evening  with ii dunce. Voluntary music was  soon rustled up, and 2 o'clock in the  morning closed down on ono of the  most, enjoyable evenings.  The shooting for the MacNaughton  medal was far more exciting than was  at first anticipated, weather beautiful,  tr.iips working splendidly and everybody in good temper. The ball was  opened by Willis Armstrong, who was  a strong favorite, 0 J. 0. The boys all  started to look ut one' another. Was  Willis oil or was he going to make a  big score ? Barnes then followed 011,  iind Beasley 011, then came'Edwards,  betting was fast'and furious between  Armstrong and him, however his 110  raised a yell from his supporters, and  from this on it became very exciting.  There Were a number of otheis. shooting, buL"it soon became apparent, that  the medal would tie between Armstrong, Edwards, Beasley and Barnes,  but in the third round Barnes made 3  duck eggs putting him out, as everybody surmised good shooting and 2  out of 3 were needed every time. The  other 3 kept equal right along, and at  the wind up the score stood Armstrong  13 out of" 18, Beasley 13 out of 18, Edwards 13 out of 18. The committee  then decided that these three should  shoot oil'six birds each to decide the  tie. Armstrong started off with 111,  Beasley 10 0, Edwards 111. Excitement by this time was at white heat,  as this virtually put Beiisley% out, and  leftrif-betweuii���������Annstrong=������nd-Ed-  wards. Armstrong then again faced  the traps, 110. Everybody looked at  Jim. Would he do it? . He was chewing gum at a fearful rate, but appar  ently as cool tis a cucumber,  SICAMOUS.  A Gold Mine on the Sidewalk���������The  Lakcview Hotel Staked out as a Mineral Claim.  Sicajious, May 17.���������Leach to Cunningham have started to work em the  Enterprise claim, the ledge of which  crops out right on Ihe sidewalk between the Lukeview hotel and the C.  P. It., and was six ilichen wide on the  surface. At a depth of -t feet the ledge  widened out to 18 inches. It is a free-  milling proposition, und an assay of a  specimen from lhe surface went .$17.i>U  to the ton in gold.  The Wi-ighr.'claim located by Messrs.  Wright of London. Out., und F.  I'luynes of Revelstoke, about 14 miles  west of the hotel, was staked last  Wednesday. It is a fine looking lead  of free-milling quartz, and Jlr. Wright  intends; to develope it at once.  ��������� The Gladys claim, near the Wright,  on the lake shore, is owned by Leach  and Giinniugliiiiu,.as also the Mabel,  not far away on ihe hill, shews steel  galena and is a promising looking  ledge.  There are fifteen prospectors out  around the lake employed by business  men ut the coast iind in Kootenay,  whose camp lires can be seen gleaming  on the mountains round the lake every  evening. About 30 claims have been  staked out altogether, a great number  of them being right round the Lake-  view Hotel. One includes the hotel  building itself, the rock in place being  discovered in the cellar, which is cut  ont of the solid rock.

One of the best descriptions of the  Big Bend country; which has yet appeared, is contained in the hist receiv-  "ei3"issu^r~tlie~Eii"glneei"lng""n"nd���������Min*  ing Journal, May 8th, and is from the  pen of Prof. Nason. Speaking of the  auriferous tributaries of the Columbia in that district, he says: "In mining the gravels of thcs-streams, there is  found among the black sands a liberal  sprinkling of galena. Considering  how soft and friable this mineral is,  it seems uSMf it must have a pretty extensive source in order to shew as  abundantly as it does. In the lower  sands, "the blue gravel" of the Cali-  fornians, there is -also found much  pyrite, cliulcopyrito aud other sulpirides. These aro without exception,  so far as the writer's experience goes  auriferous. Whether these auriferous  anil argentiferous sulphides come from  extensive and workable veins or from  small stringers, uo ono is as yet able  to say for certain." Speaking of the  discoveries in Ground Hog Basin last  year, he says: "These ledges are veins  of quart'" running through the soft  hydro-mica slate wliich forms the  country rock. The gold comes free in  tlie quartz, and is also free in the slate  of the contact Walls as well as*1u the  included masses of slate in the vein.  Sulphides of iron occur in varying percentages, all carrying gold. Some  veins are found consisting of almost  solid pyrites." In conclusion the  writer slates that in spite of the short  season and difficulty of access, " a  thorough search in this section will  in his opinion meet with great success.''
