Tho new Companies' Act seems' to  Minin8-   and    Prospecting-The    Blue-  Dressmaking Department  under? management of  Miss Chase.  have developed under the hands of lho  Select Committee; into a useful moas-  uro. The new condition of nlTiiii-s.  which litis lately risen up in West  Koiiluiiny with regard to mining companies, hus received .sunn* attention  in the act, pnrlii-ularly in the question,  of the non-assesstibility of shares purchased tit a discount. Tlio act iu this  matti'i-proceeds cm the lines of common sense. There is no more reason  why ti block of mining shares of the  face value of one dollar purchased for  15 cents apiece should he more assessable than a block of S-ilOO shares in the  C. P. R. purchased fot-'JG'}. There are,  however, other points connected with  the new milling companies wliich certainly cull for' regulation, and which  tire not nntici'd in the act. There  should have been something in the act  with regard to treasury stock. It is  absolutely necessary to prevent scandalous fiasco-, of Ihe Orphan Boy  stamp that this i lock'should be plainly masked em its.face as being treasury  stock, and should, lie the only..stock  allowed on tho market for a definite  period in the actual ' development of the mine or mines of the  company. Every mining man agrees  that some such .clauses should have  been in the act, many mining'companies tire actually insei ting them in  their by-laws, but the legislature has  ignored them as completely as if they  were framing a statute) dealing with  companies in another planet.  *  THIS SPACE IS RESERVED  FOR  JALLEN  The Revelstoke Brewer  GUY BARBER  Jeweller and Watchmaker  C. P. R. Time Inspector  However, as soon as Kootenay  acquires that preponderating influence  in lho legislature which her "population  and importance demand, these matters  will receive their due. attention. In  the meanwhile it would be well for  investors to inquire into the rules with,  regard to treasury stock of companies  soliciting their attention. Honest  prospectors, who'know-they have got  ;i promising claim, are far'too eagerto  get. their preipevty. developed to- hesitate about ticing up the .^proprietary  stock, in order to attract capital to  assist them in their enterprise. The  tighter the proprietary stock is tied  up, the more lhe confidence which the*,  investor ran feel in tbe company.  This is a test which in the multiplicity  of propositions before the public i.s  easily applied, and whicli intending  investors would do well to take into  serious consideration.  water is the Favorite   District���������Local  and Personal Mention.

ToiiONTO, May S.���������Superintendent  K. P. "IcKiiskill, of the Canadian  secret service, has made a couple of  arrests which go far toward clearing  up a very remarkable robbery in November last. The Hudson's Bay  company shipped a carload of furs  from British Columbia to England.  When thecal" reached Rat Portage a  bale of miirten. bear, and beaver,  valued at 153000, was missing in a very  mysteiiotis manner. T. A. Riddel!,  the Canadian " Pacific claims agent,  look the matter up, anti every etVort.  was made lei discover the: robbers. In  the west it became a celebrated case,  and for mouths the newspapeis published rumors of truces of the villains  who had been a terror to tho neighborhood. The case was placed in the  hands of the Canadian secret servi-.-e,  of Montreal, and after many weeks of  painstaking* work, two arrests were  made at Lancaster. Ontario detective)  McKaskill put handcuffs on C. J. Ilic-  key.'who confessed to having1 a hand  in the robbery. About the same henr  officers arrested Frank Pokorney at  Bay River, Algoma. The evidence is  against both men, and they are on  their wiiv to Rat Portage for trial.  cp      ������p      *P      {p  SAVED  BV BUYING YOUR BHKAD  AT THK  REVELSTOKE BAKERY  A. N.

Tamarack mine, stuck to  his post and saved the lives of men at  work in the; mine by his wonderful  bravery. Ten seconds after Thomas  had hoisted the men to the level the  dynamite exploded, smashing tbe engine to pieces and doing other damage,  hut the men and the boy to whom  thoy owe their lives, were in a place  of safety. Miners working in the  twenty-third level had put seven cases  of dynamite in a box for future use.  At noon- a miner accompanied by  went to the box and found it on fire.  Thomas to his post, gave the alarm to  the miners on the level below, ran the  engine until he had hoisted them up.  He then fled. The alarm of fire caused  great excitement.

Since the year lSl'.i. when the placer  gold mines of Cassiar were lirst developed, the Stit-keen river litis been tlio  avenue of communication from the  coast lo the gold mining district. It  is navigable for stern wheel steamers  to Glcnora. 120 miles 1'l-oiii ils mouth,  and under favorable circumstances to  Telegraph Creek, 12 miles furl her up,  above which point the Grand Canon  extending formally miles rentiers navigation even for boats impossible'.  From Telegraph Creek to Dease Lake  runs llie Cassiar trail opened by tho  British Columbian government in 1871.  tuitl following the valleys of the  Sticke-en river anel;. tlie Tanzilla, a  branch of the main liver, to Pease  lake. Dr. Dawson reports that neither  ti wagon roael or a railway would be  very difficult or expensive lo construct  between those points. De.-iso lake is  21 utiles long, and into* it How Dense;  creek and Thibert's creek, on which  were discovered the chief gold deposits  in the seventies. A small steamer  makes trips cm the lake.on which navigation opens in the first, week in June.  Dease river Hows into the hike at the  north end and McDame Creek, which  is one of its tributaries, about 50 miles  up stream, is the third of the great  auriferous streams of tlie district. In  1S71 the value of gold produced in the  district was estimated at $1,000,000,  between which date and 1S00 it has  annually dwindled down till it reached 821,000. with an estimated total in  all years from '74 to' '00 of about $5,-  250,000. The richest' creeks originally  discovered have.been long worked out,  miners have been attracted away to  Alaska and Yukon, and thu district is  practically - lying idle., Writing in  18S7 Dr. Dawson said : "A great part  of this district litis in fact- been merely  run .over in smirch of rich diggings,  the "  pi  ployed in the quest: It is not iinpiob/  able that addit'onal rich creeks, like  lliose of the vicinity of De*ase hike,  may yet be discovered elsewhere, and  it may yet be considered certain, that  there are great areas of poorer deposits, which will pay to work" with  improved met hods and will eventually  be utilized. It is also to be anticipated  that quartz mining will ere long be  inaiigiiruled. and will afford a nioic  permanent basis of prosperity than  alluvial mining, however rich." This  prediction litis been fully borne out by  the facts brought to light by prospectors rsincc'^then.___Rich_hyxlriudbJuiig  propositions are known to exist on  Dease   creek   and   Thibert creek, and  eitiartz leads have been discovered at  *       ^  the luail of Defot creek, a branch of  Canyon creek, whicli empties int'j  miles north of the  one of the  sources of McDaine creek. Those  ledges vary iu width from ten feet, all  tho way up to one which is 100 yards  wide and is.traceable nn the surface  for ti milt* and a half. .Spcvimens of  free-milling quartz taken from the  surface! of these leads go from $." to  .$(1.75 iu gold to the ton. Large bodies  of this low grade, gold-bearing f|tiat'tr.,  the. most attruclive proposition lo  capital at present,'ire kno.vn to exist,  in the country. In the opinion of tbe  olel time miners, who have been up  there, Cassiar is one of the most valuable districts in Ihe province, and they  cannot lind words sufficiently strong  to denounce the criminal folly of the  government in making it over, to Mr.  Warburton Pike and the Cassiar Railway Co.

WEDNESDAY,      MAY  12,  1S07.  THE KOOTENA Y R USH  The following article, clipped  from the Spokane Spokesman-  Tleview, is not without interest to  those who are anxious to .ioin the  Kootenay rush for the purpose of  'earning more   money  than  they  'can further east:  ������������������'The Kootenay has been termed  t"tHe=''p6or man's c6untT^',"1iiTd~tKe'"  term has not been misapplied.  Kot Since the placer mining days  .of early California, Idaho and  British, Columbia has fortune  been so free with her favours for  poor .men and men of moderate  means as within the past, two  years in the Kootenaj".  But this phase of mining in the  north requires some qualifications.  A~ a mle the poor men who have  fared well in there were familiar  "with mining life and the mining  industry. They were able aud  willing to take the hardships of  mountaineering in a wild district.  They were either raining men or  jnen trained to trades and callings  which go hand in hand with  mining.  Now the Kootenav'-*) enticing  reputation is drawing in there an  element of poor men for whom no  immediate opportunities aie presented.   From the north and the  ' south men of limited means arc  coming who can not  mine, who  .know nothing of prospecting, who  ��������� are not trained to camp life and  mountain climbing.  Tlie rnsh from Eastern Canada  ', Over the Canadian Pacific is even  , greater than the movement from  the    United    States    over     the  American lines ot railway.    The  ' Revelstoke    Mail    reports    that  ' "every train brings its quota to  the already overcrowded labour  market." It frequently happens  that the h tels of Revelstoke can  not provide lodgings for the  hundreds who arrive from the  east and lie there over night  beforn starting south into the  mining districts. Recently the  old smelter offices were opened for  the night to provide for the unhoused visitors, and the Govern  ment agent threw open the court  house to provide shelter for the  strangers. A reporter of the Mail  went among the immigrants aud  inquired concerning their means  aud usefulness in a mining camp.  He found that many of them were  possessed of only a fow dollars and  were relying upon work immediately upon their entrance into the  country. 'All these people, says  tho Mail, 'go south where the.pressure is greatest and where they  have been warned to. keep away  from. Ic will be a miracle, with  this rush continuing, if distress  does not follow. Eastern papers  will do well to caution the man  ���������vith small means from undertak-  igsuch a long journey with uor  v.ertainty ol' employment at the  end, as is the case with hundreds  of those now coming and intending to come to West Kootenay.'  "This warning is timely and  humane. All reports agree that  the country is overstocked with  wage earners. Its present needs  are men of means to develop  discovered properties, and trained  prospectors to search for new'min-  eral areas and additional ledges.  When tho active work begins of  constructing the Crow's .Nest Pass  railroad, employment will be provided for an army of workingmen,  but uuless the wage-earner has  money sufficient to carry him for  several mouths in the mountains  he would better remain where he  is until word is given out that  more men are wanted.  so I did. but I don't have to pay  now." How's that? Got a pass ?"  "No; a mash on the station agent."  The statement was true, 11s I afterward learned, and 1 could tell a  hundred other instances of the  company's losses through women.  It is difficult to imagine what "a  mash on the station agent" may  be, but it is safe to predict that  the manager will live to see the  time when he will wish tliat.be  had undergone an amputation of  the tongue in his youth.  HIS  EXCELLENCY   CHANG  waq-Holte  Wholesale dealeis in  A ��������� FOOLHARDY MANAGER  Passes   Through for London  to   Carry  China's Compliments to the Queen  On Thursday's train from the  cotist were four sleepers containing  the passengers from the last oriental  steamer. The most interesting party  on board consisted of His Excellency  Earl Chang, the Chinese Minister of  Foreign Affairs, and a colleague of the  famous Earl Li, who visited Calgary  ; last year, and his suite of secretaries,  boely guard, doctors, . cooks and  servants. A representative who was  on the train enjoyed a long chat with  tbe party, whicli included, the lion.  Mr. Oi Ting, Chief Director of Minos  in China, who displayed a keen desire  for information about mining laws  and systems in Canada.' '  Earl Chang's mission is to carry the  congratulations of the Emperor of  China to Queen Victoria on' the occasion of the .Jubilee celebrations in  London. Chang is an old chap with a  white moustache and a big dind.mo.t  His staff' consists of several secretaries  and " cither Chinese gentlemen  of note. Most        of        them  conversed in English lluently and wilh  almost perfect, accent. they are  taking over- several presents for the  Queen, including a large box of something whicli one of the servants  explained was "China sauce allee same  Worcester Sauce."  ^-The-infiux-cf���������the-female-to-posi--  tions usually filled by men is making itself felt in the United .Stat-",  but the manager of the Brooklyn  Elevated Railroad Company recently put himself outside the  social pale by announcing that no  more young women would be employed as ticket agents on his  lines, and assigning the preposterous reasoji that they flirted too  much. Anel then, instead of re-  pentently begging forgiveness. Ju*  had the hardihood to defend his  action, attempting to justify it by  assertions that will forever bar  him from the platform of every  Woman's Congress in this broad  land, lie said that he had been in  the railroad business for forty-two  years; that lie had had as many as  ten thousand men under him at  once, and that they never gave  him half as much trouble as the  seventy-four young women in the  ticket offices of the Elevated.  Warming up to his work, the reckless man asserted that most of the  feminine agents wanted to know  the reason of every order before  they obeyed it, and then he had  the incredible daring to say :  I have given the women a fair  trial and found them wanting.  They need watching all the time,  and we cannot afford to watch  them. And then they lie so terribly. Four or five of them caught  in the act of disobeying orcjers  have looked me full in the face  and sworn positively to their innocence. When confronted with  proofs they tell some story about  crippled mothers to support, and  weep. I overlook the offense anrl  they go and commit it ag.iin. I  am speaking lrom personal experience anel from reports I had personally verified. One day on one  of our trains I heard this conversation : "Hullo, Jim; I thought  you had sworn olf the L and decided to use the trolley ?"

The. retreat of the Greek armv is  explained by the statement that the  stall* of Prince Constantine held a  council with the Crown Prince last  evening and decided that in view of  the Turkish army having received  large reinforcements, which enabled  them to" greatly outnumber the  Greeks, the. success of the Grecian  lorces in battle was impossible and it  -was decided-to retire to-Domoko  Large   Shipment   of   Ammunition ��������� A  Rumour   About   British   Troops ���������  Retreat of the Greecian Army���������The  o   Powers Have Proposed for Mediation  London, May ".���������A despatch from  Capetown says that tbe army in're-  serves at Natal have been notified to  hold themselves in readiness for service. .

SiFTON'S  IN GOOD HUMOUR  In Replying to the Remarks of Foster  and- Tupper on Superannuations���������  Stigma of Inefficiency to be Removed  ���������Civil Servants Raise 'Is All Right  Ottawa, May .".���������In the' Commons  today a bitter* attack was made on  Sifton's .changes in the* Intent)!'  department by Foster and Tupper.  The question arose as to what they  woultl do regarding increases ot salary  to clerks. Under the late government they had a raise of So0 per year.  The present administration explained  that this was not obligatory but only  permissive to pass these statutory  grants, They might have sent 100  clerks in the,civil service adrift but  the present means would be more  humane and serve the purpose jtist  as well. The deserving would not  suffer in the least, they would, receive  tlie usual encouragement.  Hon. Mr. Foster condemned the  superannuation of Hayter Re.d and  McGirr, of the Indian department, and  asked the Minister of the Interior what  he proposed doing when he rode out  all the men who knew their business ?  Mr. Sifton said the management of  Indian affairs and the Interior department was notorious, and it was his  intention to remove the stigma of  inefficiency. Sifton's defence was all  made in the best of humour.  STILL TARIFF AT   OTTAWA  The Government Will Endeavour to Get  a Move on���������Western Members Kick  Against the New Tariff���������Want the  Duty as Promised���������Arbitration?   No!  Ottawa. May 0.���������The government  gives notice tonight that it propose to  take, after this week, everyday except  Mondays for government business.  This shows it intends to make an  attempt to get down to business.  So far as the tariff is concerned no  progress is likely to be made this week.  Numerous changes are predicted as  a   result  of  pressure that   has been  and is being brought to bear. Deputations ot manufacturers - are having  their innings now, but there are  influences at work seeking to extort  further reductions. Chief among  these are Western members, who protest in the strongest wav against the  failure to carry out- the Liberal policy  as they were given to understand it.  The Government, however, figures  that the kickers will support it just as  completely if it fails to meet their  wishes as if it had done so.
