The   pith   of   the   whole  business lies in   the "following  para  graph under the head'of applications  received and how dealt with.    In June,  1S9C, the Attorney-General sent round  a eii'culiir asking original grantees  of  disputed   lauds   from   the   Provincial  government, or persons deriving their  titles from  the   original   granless   to  forward their title deeds-in   order to  obtain confirmatory grunts from  the  Dominion  government.     In  response  to   this   appeal   A.  S. Fnr\vell   made  application   on  Oct. IS. 1S90,  and his  ciise is thus descrihpd :   No surrender  yet executed.     Awaiting   particulars  of   sales, (with maps) of his land  hy  Dominion   Government   and   production of original grant to A. S. Farwell.  Thu Hkkald   understands   froin  the  member for North Kootenay that the  necessary maps and documents alluded to in the above precis were received  from Oltawa hufore the session closed.  Nothing now should therefore remain  but for Mr. Farwell   to   produce  h!s  original Provincial, grant, receive in  exchange a Dominion patent, and then  he.would  be in   a   position   to. treat  direct .with   parties,   who   took  over  lots from him hi 1885 and 1SSC by conveyance or agreement, or sit least with  such ofjtliem as can be   got   hold   of.  This course would settle  whole diffl-  cully   and   simplicity  and   despatch.  With regard to the rest of the town'  site owners; the C. P./R., Smeller Co.  C. to K. S. N. Co., now Unit  the* Provincial government have received  the  necessary maps from the Interior Department, there should not, one would  imagine,   be   any    further - dilliculty  about registration at all.

Plans and specifications for tho new  court house and government buildings  are now on view in the Gold Commissioner's oflice. They shew a handsome  two storey building with a central  tower. The lower storev is devoted  lo offices and the upper to the court  room and its accessory rooms. Certain  points however about the details, of  the structure seem to' demand criticism. The timbers mentioned in the  specifications are too weak for the  plan of the buileling, particularly is  this the case in the supports of the  tower. The heavy fall of snow in this  part of the country renders this 1  point upon which it is particularly  necessary to insist. Besides this the  building is badly lighted on the lower  floor, which should have tit least five  more windows to secure proper lighting. There is actually one room on  the ground floor without any window  in- it at all. Another light in the  juror's room upstairs should also be  added. The arrangements for heating  imply from ten to a dozen .separate  stoves, the whole of wliich would be  rendered unnecessary by provision for  a furnace in the basement, with great  saving both of fuel and labor and considerable additional comfort to the  inmates of the building. The Hkiiald  hopes the department will see its way  lo rectify these deficiencies in the plan.  Xi done now, a good deal of expense  may be avoided later on."  A general committee consisting of R.  S. Wilson, T. J. Graham, J. Shaw and  R. Piirm Pettipiece were selected to  make preliminary arrangements as to  how the day was to bo spent, arranging for speakers, the town' band and  other amusements. The Lodge will  only get the crowd here and have  their own usual ceremonies, while the  sports and uny other programme,! will  be left to our hotel and business men.  It has also been arranged to have those  who arrive from the south on Sunday  evening to join with the local lodge in  a parade to the Methodist church, if  possible. If everything goes right the  12th'of July celebration will be one of  the biggest of its nature ever held in  British Columbia. Posters, dodgers  and advertisements will he circulated  giving full particular.-., as soon tis the  committee htivemnde definite arrangements.  TROUT   LAKE  CITY.

Lundy and Jos.,Kirkpatrick returned lo Ferguson on Tuesday evening from si five days trip up  the north fork of the Liirdeau. They  located a ledge 9 miles from Ferguson  of very promising looking ore. ' The  ledge is of the phenomenal width of  75 feet on the. surface.

Dave Ferguson deserves great credit  for the good job he made of the pack  trail, but as soon as the waggon road  is completed and lumber can get in  here, Ferguson will go ahead by leaps  and bounds.

The Orphan Boy case assumes a new  phase bn'tlie'application of Rose Haskins for an order to wind up the com-*  puny and distribute the assets.- An tho ���������  affidavit which accompanies the petition,, the particulars'of 3. W, Haskins  claim against the company, upon  which he obtained judgment against  the company, and had its. property  sold, are set forth. This shows that  Mr. Haskins had been getting $150 11,  month from the organization ' of the  company as superintendent, and that  the secretary was'supposed to get $100-  a month. The remainder -of the _  amount sued for is supposed to be cash  advanced the company for wages, and  supplies and legal expenses, including  "SlW^expenses^-of-^lhe���������secretary���������  to Vancouver to accept service of  the writ, iind a lawyer's expenses to  Revelstoke and his fee of $150 in connection therewith. It is stated by the  secretary that no treasury stock was  sold owing to proprietory stock being  offered at a lower price, and it is also  claimed that Mayor Templeton, of  Vancouver, bought a block of stock,  running up into the hundreds of thousands from Haskins the day before the  salt- or the mine. Mayor Templeton  declines to discuss these matters. Tho  Orphan Boy case seems ranker the  further its details are pried into.  There is little doubt now bub that the  case will be threshed out in the courts.  II. N. Ccursior. of Revelstoke, was in  Rossland last week getting authority  to'act for Rossland shareholders. In  Vancouver, it is stated that developments in this case has done more than  any other one thing to stop the sale of  mining stocks in Eastern Canada.���������  Rosslander.

A prohibition law passed  without a proper appreciation of  its consequences would uot be a  lasting enactment aud would be  very quickly repealed.  SATURDAY. "MAY '20.  1SS17.  THE PLERISC1TE.  The prohibition question is to be  submitted to the electorate, but  with characteristic shrewdness the  Government has stripped it ot all  sentiment and lias made it severely practical. To the question as to  -the desirability-of-thc-euactment-  of a prohibition law, is added  another as.kiug whether the voter  would like so much to see it carried  as to submit to direct taxation.  The question -"of revenue is of  course very serious, and some  means must be found to compensate for the loss of SS,000,000 annu-  nlly which would be the immediate  elfect of a prohibitory law. As all  the indirect methods have now  been exhausted, a direct tax on  incomes is all tbat is left.  On the one hand it i~ argued  that under prohibition the expense  of government will be lessened.  It is maintained that the, general  expense oE keeping up a police  force, caring for paupers aud other  phases of go\ eminent ��������� will be  greatly reduced by the enactment  of a prohibition law. On the other  hand it is urged that so far from  the cost of government being reduced a prohibition law would  necessitate the employment of a  large staff of officers to enforce it.  The illegal manufacture of liquor  would have to be suppressed and  several thousand mile? of land and  seashore would have to^be carefully watched to prevent smuggling. Experience has ��������� shown  in these ' localities where the  Canadian Temperance act has  been put in operation that a prohibitory law will not enforce  itself, aud that costly assistance is  necessary to carry it out. So that  the electors will have to do a good  deal of thinking before casting a  ballot one way or the other. Jt  may be that a majority of tbe  people of Canada are in favour of  the passing of such a law, and no  doubt if less money were spent on  whiskey there would be more  money with which to pay necessary taxes.   But before a vote is  James Payn, in the Illustrated  London News, says that the best  way when attacked by a bore is  to appear to listen to him while  thinking of something else, every  now aud then putting, in some  uncompromising observation such  as: "Dear me!" "Really!" "'.lust  so !'' He advises, however, that  care should be taken to avoid  interrogation. cThere used to be  dreadful story told of a dreary  person named Jones describing his  meeting with a friend after a  long absence who exclaimed  "Why, can this be Jones?"  Which moment of dramatic interest the supposed listener unfortunately chose for saying "And was  it ?"'

CRIPPLE CREEK  Its Gold Area Confined to Six Miles  by Four���������Some Men Who Have  Made Fortunes.   .  London .Mining Join mil: The gold  bearing area of Cripple Creek is practically limited to a tract of gror.n.l  measuring about six miles north and  south by four miles east aud west,  comprising a group of rolling hills on  which the mines a:e located. Outside  this golden circle the ground is staked  in claims for miles in every direction,  and ib is on .this ground that tl e  worthless oi bogus company is floated.  Jt is a fact and one that should be profitably heeded, that practically no  shipping mine has been developed outside this circle. Inside it the ground  is, of course. limited in extent and for  years past inflated and prohibited  prices have prevailed and done much  to damage legitimate mining.  Among geologists and mining engineers the concensus of opinion is  that the district, while permanent as  a big gold producer, is of volcanic  origin iind peculiarly eratic. Iu other  words, certainty or continuity of veins  and oie* chutes cannot be.* assumed  either laterally or with de.ntb. The  result is���������and this will surprise a great  many��������� that mining is more )|f a lottery "in this district than elstV"liere in  Colorado, and tbat a mere *_)_. ivice in  mining  mav,   by  pure  chanc.     run  across a rich.vein whileaii experienced  "mining man, alter ' Hit* most careful  investigation, may utterly fail to find  a pound of ore.
