THE SILVER LARDEAU  Prof. Carlyle's Report on the Trout Lake  Mining Division.  01.0 SONOMA  Lies   immediately on  the southern  extension of the Broadview, and in 11  small shaft 23 feet deep  with u 50 foot  drift is seen 11 small amount  of quartz  carrying 11 little galena and iron pyrites, while 11 tunnel  has heen driven  3(13 feet, hut with the disclosure of no  ore.   No ore yet found cm the Phillips-  hmg.  OHKAT NORTHERN'.  These claims lying lietween the  Broadview and True Fissure, have the  sui-fare well covered with wash or  detritnl mutter, hut. four crosscut tunnels, now hail I y caved in, have heen  run in towards this large'quartz ledge  at. the lower one ������'f whichl'thc dump'  consisted of black enrhonac-ous slates  and white quartz with traces of galena, while 'from an upper tunnel a  large amount of quartz and iron pyrites had heen extracted,'from which  17 tons were sorted andiscnt to the  smelter in 1800, the returns for which  are not known. In another tunnel a  little higher np is an exposure of  quartz with a large amount of iron  pyrites currying also galena and zinc  blende. No work, was being" done at  lime of visit, and tlie condition of the  tunnels precluded any proper underground examination.  . TRUE FISSURE.'  On (his claim for a wide area, the  slates and .shales have :hui*ii eroded  leaving a large exposure of white  quartz that must lie from 20 to 30  feet thick along the steep hillside.  In one shallow cut tvas seen considerable siderite with a little galena, find  helow this a crosscut tunnel lifts heen  driven 01 feet in which" about 20 feet  of .solid, white quartz, carrying some  slate, some iron pyrites and very little  galena, were first cut, beyond which  tlie tunnel run through crushed and  contorted black .sbity material crossed  and seamed by stringers-und masses of  bai-i-en white,; qititrtss-^sttoiig ..which a  /Ji-Jfl-'lnJ1.__:IZkSfet^iit-Js*-_, 111 _ ������'��������� ������������������������-������_.^-.���������������<��������� ������*.  lead/issays of $3' to 322 ih silver weie  otitfiiued hy Ml*.

Farther to  the-north tha surface dirt has been  cleared olf this large exposure of  quartz, and a short, tunnel of 10 feet  driven in, and here, on the upper or  sil'rf.-ice part of the leilge, can he seen  much nearly solid iron pyrites 1 1-2 to  2 1-2 feet thick, under which-lies a  narrow parallel band of fine galena  scattered through the quartz, below  which again .-ire 3 to 5 feet of siderite  and quartz with irregular masses or  blotches of iron pyrites, underlying  which is the barren white quartz with  fragments of country lock, the dip of  thesc-hands beiii"g-I.V"casterlyf���������Fronf  a pile of nearly pure pyritous ore here  fair assays in gold find silver are reported. While a large amount of lhis  quartz ledge mutter i.s thus exposed  on this property, the very little work  yet done hus not "exposed any body of  pay ore nor concentrating ore, although from material taken at the  north end of the claim assays of $1 in  gold find 10 oz in silver per ton have  been obtained.

However, a Brandon company  were, developing this properly on  which was said were two, perhaps  more, veins of quartz and galena that  might prove to carry concentrating  ore.  The Home lead was not visited, as  nothing was being done except some  assessment work on the claims located  for miles idong the supposed trend of  a large lead of quartz and galena with  low silver valuee, wliich is said to run  in parallel stringers on the North  Fork of Lardo Creek.  Blackburn. 2,500 feet south of the  above lead, is very little developed,  some low grade galena showing.  Glengarry, on Silver Tip Creek, a  tributary of thecDiincaii. and on the  divide between this and Boyd Creek  The"trail runs up Fish Creekj to the  claim located high up among the  glaciers, and although very little work  has been done, there is said to he a  wide 6-foot quartz lead carrying some  galeua, although iu one place a foot  wide of clean ore is showing.  BADSHOT.  Elevation about 7,500 feet. 5 or 0  miles up.Gainer Creek.     F.  Campbell  and F. Johnson oivn thi- claim, and  the adjoining Pine Tree, and three  other claims. This property is located  along the contact of the up-tilteil  schists and the lime-dyke or limestone  belt* and in the limestone is a small  vein of argentiferous galena, on  which several assessments have been  done.  Other claims near here are located  on small galena stringvrs.  The Black Prince, owned hy Mr.  Yawkey and others, lies along the  same line of contact, southeast of tho'  Badshot. but on the opposite or east  side of Gainer Creek. It' was stated  that a 150-foot crosscut .tunnel had  been driven to intercept a small vein  of galena in the-limestone, occurring,  more as small stringeis..'- Located  high up and accessiblii only by a very  steep trail.    No work  being done.  Pathfinder group, lying south-west  of the Black Prince group, uud owned  by Mt-Ciilloiigh to Brewster. In the  slaty formation, not far distant from  a porphyry dyke, are found stringers  of quartz, and galena said to carry  very good silver valuvs. A cross-cut  was being run along one of these  stringers towards this zone.  Molly Mack, three miles tip Gainer  Creek. Some work was being done to  prospect some ground where some  quartz, iron pyrites aud a little galena,  were showing.  '��������� Silver Chief, 4 or 5 miles up Gainer  Creek, near summit on the east side.  Mr. Hugh Stewart was said to have 9  men at work developing two small S to  10 inches of steel galena".    .  A small hotel was opened at the cm\-  fiuence of the Lardeau and Gainer  Creeks, which made a convenient  stopping place en route up Gainer  Creek or to Wagner Group.  -      (TO DE CONTINUED)  MAILETTES  FARWELL ANDJNCORPORATION  Sudden Interest Taken in the Welfare  ' of Revelstoke by its Founder.  So Mr. A. S. Farwell thinks he will  do some lobbying against the Itevelstoke incorporation charter. Can this  Mr. A. S. Fartvell, who has 'developed  this sudden interest in our affairs, be  the same Mr. A. S. Farwell, who recently replied to a request for a donation tnwaids the map and pamphlet  advertising Kevelstoke, which the  bourd of trade are. getting up, by writing thut he did not own anything in  .Revelstoke and therefore declined to  subscribe. Mr. Farwell objects to the  petition that it is signed hy parties,  wh ose titles are not registered. Is Mr.  Fill-well of all men on earth unaware  that a person cm own land for" the  purposes of assessment, taxation -,or  voting without a registered title. He  can hold land under agreeiiient and  may only have made one payment",  hut. he is a ratepayer and has a vote all  the same. Or he might possibly, such  cases'have been known, be merely the  figurehead behind which three or four  land speculators are concealing, their  identity. Still he 'would be a. ratepayer aiid have a, vote. However  there is no fear of Mr. Farwell or his  objections. The hill for the incorporation of'this place is being prepared  for the'legislature, and Mr. Farwell's  lobbying won't hurt it very much:  though it is quite conceivable that our  esteemed, which has never dared to  open its mouth on the subject of incorporation one way or the '"other,  would be very glad to see Mr. Fartvell  make his threats effectual.

O'Higgins was with him-.and his  charge at Cliacabuso in February  1817 decided that battle io favor of  the patriot army. : Three days  after, San Martiu -refusing the  oflice, O'Higgins , Was named  dictator. The independence of tho  country was formally proclaimed  in February 1818, and was decided  by the victory ot Maipo iu April  of that year. O'Higgins ruled  progressively until 1822, when he  was forced to resign and flee to  Peru. Tliere he lived until hi.s  death, liis name is ono to conjure  with, and will never die as long  as Chile lives.  LOUGHEED'S MOTION OPPOSED  BY MILLS  HAMILTON SMITH'S SCHEME  I  CUBA  1.

APRIL  2,      180S.  THE SAN JOSE SCALE  As the readers ot The Hkiiai.d  are   already  aware   au    act    to  protect Canada against the insect  pest known as the San Jose scale  has been-rushed through  parliament and has become law.    The  San  Jose   scale", which takes   its  name from the San Jose valley iu  California ' where    it    was    tirst  noticed as far back as 1873, was  definitely   located    last   year  several orchards  in the   Niagara  district    and   also  in   the   south  western district of Ontario.   The  insect which is known   to   enty-  mologists      as      the     aspidiotus  perniciosus is most destructive tor  many    reasons.        It     possesses  marvellous power of reproduction,  and can kill au infested young tree  within three years, attacking the  leaf, stem, twig and fruit.    The  scale has   been  found  upon   the  peach,      plum,     apple.     cherry,  currant,    gooseberry,   raspbeiry,  . rose, hawthorn and even the elm.  It was to prevent its ready intro-  . iluction by nursery stock and fruit  irom infested trees that the act  was passed, and-as the disease has  been found to exist in the United  States, Australia, Japan aud the  Hawaiian Islands, the act has by  order in council been made applicable to these countries. Green  house plants (except roses), herbaceous perennials and bedding  plants, conifers, bulbs and tubers  which are not liable to the attack  of the scale have been exempted  from the operations of the act. It  is an ill wind that doesn't blow  good to somebody, and the San  Jose scale (elsewhere) should prove  of very great benefit to Ontario  nurserymen, who have now to  thank the government for a  greater   measure    of    protection  ���������than ��������� they���������ever���������had���������dreamed  to hope for. '  The present attempt of the  United State"-'to secure possession  of Cuba recalls the proposition of  President Polk in 1818 to buy Cuba  for a hundred million dollars.  Spain promptly refused tho offer,  whereupon a series of expeditions  were- -.permitted to create if  possible a revolution among the  islanders. In 185-1 three American  ministers in Europe issued it  manifesto from Ostend in Belgium  to the effect that Cuba, ought to  belong to the United States and  that, in certain circumstances, the  Washington government should  take Cuba by main force. Not  long beforo the civil war a resolution was offered in the United  States Senate to place $30,000,000  in the President's hands for the  acquisition of Cuba. The revolt  of 180S-187S had the sympathy of  Americans. In face, it is not improbable that either tbe direct aid  of American citizens, with the  known desire of the nation and  government for their success, has  done a good deal to keep alive the  embers of discontent and dis-  uffeution among tho islanders  during the'last 50 years.  SENATORS   OVERWHELMINGLY  AGAINST IT  CAMERON    FOR    GOVERNOR  The budget is expected to budge  at Ottawa today..  The    war    cloud   is    just   now  pregnant with disaster.  Having- enjoyed a semi-tropical  in j winter England is shivering under  an Arctic spring.  Strange that the inspector of  weights and measures never  inspects the San Jose scale.  The Globe is afraid the government will be "lied out of ollice,"  but it is . the truth that Mr.  Tarte fears.  Sir Charles Dilke says war  between Spain and the United  States is inevitable and that  Spanish pride will never-givo up  without a fight.

Egyptians and Dervishes Show  Fight���������Lowering _the ^Interest in  Post Office Saving?Banks���������Protests  TIIE O'HIGGINS  A good deal of discussion has  arisen in connection with the war  rumors which have been for some  time in ciroulation "as to which  side "the O'Higgins"' will be found  on when the row commences. It  may be just as well to state at the  outset, that the O'Higgins is not  ns the name would seem to imply���������  .nu Irish warrior whose services  are being anxiously looked for by  the intending belligerents but a  cruiser which is at present being  built in England for the Republic  of Chile. It is essentially different  from any Irish warrior yet 'pro-'  duced.in the facts that it has been  constructed in the land of the  S-ixon and that.it is about to  recome the property of the  highest bidder. " ft is a far cry  from the County Meath to the  South American republic, but  there is good reason for calling a  Chilean vessel by an Irish name.  Bernardo O'Higgins, after-^whom  the cruiser is named, was horn in  Chillian, Chile, in 177S. He was  the son of Ambrose O'Higgins his  mother, being 'a*; Spaniard.  Ambrose O'Higgins was born in  County Meath, Ireland, iu 17*'J0,  and died in Lima. Peru, in 1S01.  He was educated in Spain and went  to Chile as a trader when a.young  man. He obtained a commission  in the army and rote rapidly. He  wai Captain General of Chile in  178800, _������nd Viceroy of Peru from  1790 until his death* He was made  Marsball'-'of Osorno, and was an  excellent ruler. His son Bernardo  was educated iu England, where  he imbibed republican idea*, and,  when the Chilean war of independence broke out he served . with  the patriots. When Can-era was  deposed in 1813 O'Higgins was  made, commander of the army.  Carrera was opposed to him and a  civil war would have resulted but  for the common danger from the  Spanish, wliich led to the union of  the Carrera and O'Higgins'forces.  The combined army was defeated  at Rancayua in October 1811. and  they fled across the Andes. When  San      Martin      invaded       Chile  The Yukon bill is killed and  Laurier and Tarto are confined to  their rooms through illness.., It  would be interesting to know how  Jlr. Sifton feels. Apparently his  constitution has withstood the  shock.  It is said Sir Wilfrid Laurier is  about to appoiut six new Senators.  It is quite evident the Liberal  party has . need of them, but  whether au over-governed country  wants this additional. burden is  another question.  A sensation has been caused in  Ottawa society by the discovery  that a thief has been extensively  operating at fashionable function*.  This thief has probably read a  certain, statesman's remark, that  "business is business."  Mr. Tarte's persuaders to the  Senate regarding the Yukon railway grab are not likely to  persuade much. His ��������� paper La  Patrie refers to the members of  the red chamber as''"'infirm''and  irresponsible invalids who represent nothing but their own  impotence and spite."  -,; The ~old trouble between the  critics and their victims broke out  in London the other day in tho  shape of a libel suit brought by  the well known comic opera writer,  V\. S. Gilbert, against a paper  called the Era, owing to the publication in that paper of an article  taxing Gilbert with pom polity,  envy, ingratitude, etc., apropos of  an interview in which he fell foul  of Sydney Grundjv actors and  critics generally;- - Mr. Gilbprt  claimed ������1,000 damages. The  whole case is a mutual exchange of  compliments. ���������- During the cour������i;  of his examination Mr. Gilbert admitted attacking!'t.he critics, but  said he referred to the America n  horde ot journalists in London,  who,' without literary ability or  experience, are given positions as  critics, as , the easiest work lor  incompetent journalists.

THE SENATI' OX THE YUKON  " The Senators were debating the  Stickine railway all the week. Before  the debate began the Senators had  t.ho priviletre of hearing from the  Yukon miners through a delegation of  three men who have come thousands  "of miles "to .ippe.il on behalf of more  than ttvo thousand working men in  the Klondike country. The three  men'of the region of eternal frost beeped the Semite not to pass the bill  which"would intensify the hardships  that the miner- ha-1 to endure. "Give  ns a chance to live" suitl delegate  I_.iverna._h. "you are doing a great deal  for speculators and much for your  contractors. We. want to know where  the miners come in." He exhibited  diagrams to show that the proposed  hind grant would effectually   shutout  .the working miners from a share of  the weal tir of the Yukon, and that the'  whole of the mineral wealth would go  to Mackenzie to Mann.  That afternoon the Minister of  Justice moved the second, rending of  the bill. Ue spoke long but with signs  of nuxiety in his manner. The Secretary of'State  who  spoke later was  .'despoVident.

NO BOUNTY FOR nUTTEU  Part of two days was devoted hy the  Commons to the resolution of Mr.  Reid. of Grenville, in favor of a Dominion bounty of one cent, per  'pound- tn the producer of butter of  approved qunlity for export. He and  those who followed him on the same  side, gave strong reasons for the  policy recommended. They showed  that the growth of the cheese trade  with Great Britain was approaching  - Its limit. The British people nlready  procure from Canada two-thirds ot the  cheese they buy from abroad. They  procure only three-pounds of Canadian butter for ejich one hundred  pounds imported from other countries.  Where Canada sends one. pound of  butter to the British" Inlands, little  Denmark alone sends fourteen.    .   ."  MivReid' sees in this condition: of  things a great future for the Canadian  butter maker. Time was when Denmark wan obliged lo olfer Government encouragement to the butter-  producers to induce them ti sock the  British market.' This is what Mr.  Reid and those who supported him.  Including Dr. Sproule.Mr. Henderson,  Mr. Taylor. Mr. Broiler, Mr. McLean,  Mr. Pope, Mr. McNeill. Mr. Mai tin.  Mr. Macdonald (P.E.I.). Sir Charles  Tupper. Mr. Davin, Mr. Bell, of Pictou  and Mi'. Chauncey, wanted to do.  They urged the Government to offer  this'biiunty and lo continue it for a  few years until Canadian butter is as  well known nnd as much in demand  on the British inniket as Danish butter and Canadian cheese are how. Thn  Government resisted this: motion.  Minister.*; condemned bonujes uf all  kinds jusl. as if they were not paying  bounties   on   iron   and  steel.     After  trying lo head the resolution off with  a motion to ailj.iuru the Government  whip killed it Willi an amendment.  The amendment puiised the Government for ils cold storage policy, and  struck all reference to the bounty out  oT the motion. The resolution was  killed by a straight party vote, every  Liberal voting for the slaughter.  When Mr. Charlton got his Sunday  bill through committee ten day ago  he thought he had only the Senate to  fear.

Mr. Charlton  spoke of the Sunday piper as the  "American Anti-Christ," and accused  members of a desire to crush out every  moral and religious sentiment in the  human breast. Mr. Osier of Toronto  shewed a disposition to icsent these  reflections and said that Charlton  claimed to have ,".i power of attorney  from the -Almi-dily." This "grand-,  motherly'' legislation had no chamis  for Mr. Order, and Mr. Somerville  argued that Mr. Charlton had cost the  country $39,000 in the expense of  keeping parliament, al work two days  every session over hi-, b lis.

An Englishman who drops his h's  nnd aspirates his a's and a stenographer  and typewriter who spells phonetically  from diotation make a combination  from which trouble ia mire to result nn  lesa tho "copy" is carefully revised.  The manager of ono of tlio most important manufacturing plants iu Cleveland  is an Englishman. Not li.ii|> ago ho employed a young man to net as his stenographer, and ono of tho fir.st things thnt  tho latter was cnlled upon to do' wns  tho "taking down" of a letter to tho  manager's wife, who wns away at a  slimmer resort. Being n busy man, the  malinger didn't take tho trouble to look  nt the letter after it had been typewritten, hut when his wifo answered it  there was a hot time for the stenographer. "My dear Hqnry," sho wrote,  "what on earth do you mean by culling  mo 'Hannah' "and our littlo Horace  'Orris?' I will admit tha; this sound's  liko yon, but why do you mako a joko  of it beforo your employees?"  Of course the fond hu.bnnd. and father didn't kuow.what it all meant, and  so ho wrote for an explanation; when  his first letter was sent back to him.

A  BUSINESS  PARABLE.  Vou Cannot Fail to Appreciate tho Point  In This Story,  Once a farmer had-1,800 bushels of  wheat, which he sold not to a single  grain merchant, but to', l.SOO different  dealers, a bushel each. A few of them  paid him in cash, but. far the greater  number Enid it was not convenient then;  they would, pay later. A few months  passed, and the man's bank account ran  low. "How,, is'.this?" he said. "My  1,800 bushels of groin' should have kept  mo in affluence until another crop' is  raised, but I have parted with the grain  nnd have instead only a vast number of  accounts,j_qJmall'-'aud. soattored thn'Ji  "cannot"''get around and collect fast  enough to pay expenses."  So ho posted np a public notice and  asked all, those who owed him to 'pay  quickly. But few came. Tho rest said,,  "Mine is only a small matter, and I  will go aud pay one of those days,'' forgetting thnt though each account waa  very small, when all wero put together  tbey meant a largo sum to. tho man.  Things went ou thus. The man got to  feeling so badly that ho fell out of bed  nnd nwoko, and running to his granary  found his 1,800 bushels of wheat still  Eafo there. Ho had only been dreaming.

HEATING MILK.  Bringing   It  to   the   Bight  Ten_peratu������  For Separating:.  I believe there ia more loss to the  creameries of the country at this ono  point of passing from tho rocoiving vat  to tho separator than at any other poiut  along the line. To seoure an even tern-  poraturu it is one of the most essential  things to do good skimming, and to get  this yon must cortniuly watch your  thermometer. Somo milk may como in  seven or eight miles on ������ cold day, tho  can lids aro frozen on and there is a  scum of ico stickiug on tho can. Botween thawing tlio cans aud weighing  up you can't moro tlinn keep tho sepn-  vator.s going. Thu next butch, maybe, in  from near ut hand. Tho m ilk has hut  recently been takeu from tho houso or  somo other warm placo and covered with  a blunkot until it reaches tho creamery.  Now thero is n great diiferenco iu thn  temperature of theso two hutches of milk  that tvill requiro close attentiou ou thu  part of tho ono who is doing tho skimming.  Wo find tho two classes that nre  mainly used are either tho temporiug  vat with tho live steam running direct  into thn milk or ono of tho several patented heaters that are made aud sold by  cronuiory supply houses aud othei-ftr.  In tho case of the heaters I think the  worst danger is to seoure an evou toni-  peraturo to the milk, and, as I said beforo, this*, I think, is very essential to do  good skimming. Somo of these heaters  admit tho steam direct into the milk as  it is passing through a pipo iuto the  separators. Others do not allow the  'eleani to enter tho milk at all, hut tho  steam is admitted into a brass cylinder  that is placed inside a live or six inch  pipe, and tho milk passes between the  pipe aud cylinder in a sheet from ono to  ouo and on .-quarter,inches iu thickness  und is heated by coming in contact with  the hot cylinder. '  -  This kind of heater has the advantage, if there is auy advantage, of keeping tho steam out.of the milk, aud this  is a point that I hope will bring out a  good discussion on this question of  whether'if is nu.injury to milk to use  steam direct iu it or not.- For my part  'I dou't think it is wheu the proper cure  is takou in the supply of water,.used for  boiliug'feed,-*but if my supply of water  was not of the cleanest and host or if I  had used a boiler compound iu; my  boiler I think' theu I would use some  kind of a heater where, the steam was  not allowed to enter the milk. I had a  little experience with this matter of  compounds ouco that cost mo quite a  guru of money. A gentleman called ou  me iu tho interest of an oil lirm aud induced me to try a sainplo keg of boiler  compound.' I told the gontlemau I was  usiug steam direct in the milk and was  afraid it would injure my buttor. He  assured mo that it would not, and I concluded to try it' and did, but I haven't  tried any compound since. ' My day's  run of butter had tho same' flavor as tho  compound, aud wheu we shipped  it to  _t"'_ _o__j---_-il Ilinrlot��������� it aol<_ *0-ooxj,t_- mjmt  der. Soif you use'-6tenm direct be caro-  ful what you use iii your boiler,' for if  yon have any bad odors iu your boiler  you aro hound to havo them in your  buttor. I use in my factory a tempering  vat which holds about 200 pouuds of  milk. This vat is hung over the receiving vat, aud tho milk is elevated to it  by a pump. In this vat I havo two partitions opeu at alternate euds. The milk  euters the vat nt ono corucr and passes  out at tho corner diagonally across. I  have the steam euter tho milk as near  the point where tho milk enters tho vat  as convenient. Thus the milk runs tho  leugth of tho vat three times after tho  steam hus entered it, and thus becomes  of au even tempornturo by the timo.it  Evarts and Mark Twain.

After this I havo no further  trouble, but can heat tho milk as fast as  I can separate it. Some may claim that  you havo a loss of heat by evaporation  from bo largo' a surface, but this, I  think, aud according to Professor McKay's theory of evaporation, is a benefit  nnd not an injury, as the evaporation  holps to carry off the bad odors that may  bo iu tho milk,.and the loss of heat is a  vory small per cont.  j.

Newspaper Advertising  An important, though often overlooked feature of  ncwspapci' advertising- is th.e good feeling which a pleasant  invitation, neatly placed in type, produces. Acquaintanceship  between our reader-, and advertisers is begun at the very  first time your advertisement appears.. The invitation may  not always be accepted at once, but good will has been  established.   , -��������� .    ' J-  With what a feeling of ease and serenity one enters  the store or hotel that is advertised; he is welcome; he has  been invited to come. With what confidence you inquire for  an advertised article; the {"roprictor himself believes in iti.  wants you to try it, i.s interested in your getting" it. This  very good will, this appreciation of courtesy, this satisfaction:  in being pleasantly asked, has been the foundation of many-a-  successful business..  Newspaper   advertising    is ��������� something    nioro   than  spending money in the newspapers.'   If properlydone.it is  the  making  of acquaintanceship  and  friendship that will ,  surely be of great value intinic to :c6mc.  Would you have your, business or .your article so  favorably regarded? Makc.-Jt. known."

NOTE AND COMMENT  A competent engineer is to be sont  to Kootenav to take measures''foi* the  best disposal of the sewage iu each  town.  In a Ii:.t of the items of public expenditure affecting the Kootenay district, which, by the way, it apparently  thinks begins somewhere in the Slocan and ends at Nelsou, the Nelson  Miner puts down the grant of $SI)00  for the Six Mile Creek road, which  was understood here to refer to the  road to the head of the canyon, to a  road up Six Mile Creek in the Slocan.  This should be looked into.  This country will soon belong to Air.  Bostock altogether, if the connections  will only conned���������an important condition. Not content, with owning the  Grit press of the province, if reports  are to be relied on, all his little, editors  are to run for the legislature���������Define  fur Kamloops, Atkins for Revelstoke,  Htiggen for Golden. King for Kaslo.  anil U.-iillie for Fort Steele. Mr. Bostock must be laying his pipes to play  the Cecil Rhcdes of British  Columbia.  The Rossland Miner is a live and  enterprising journal, but there nre  some things, which they do not know  all about, even in Rossland. And when  tbe Miner clips out of the Hkkald ah  item about Jack Sweeney, the Consolation mine and French creek and  twice credits it to the Ainsworth district, it is quite obvious that the Big  Bend section is one of those things.  However, French Creek and the Big  Bend generally will soon be making  Rossland hump to keep its place as the  chief gold producing camp iu Kootenay and then the Miner will know more  about it.  The return of revenue find expenditure by districts, brought down last  month to the legislature, when examined affords considerable food for  reflection.

You could not depend on buying pack  horses or equipment here.  Cut in Two  Attention is directed to the'advertisement of the Vancouver World,  which appears in another column.  That journal, owing to the fact that it  now possesses the latest find most approved appliances for producing its  several editions���������daily and twice a  week issues���������announces it reduction in  its subscription term**, which practically amounts to n cut in tw'o.'nn  previous rates.

The type, from  which it is printed is set Iiy machinery  ���������there being four Linotype machines  in operation in the composing room.  The printing press is a web one, turning out complete copies at a rate of 150  it minute or 0,000 copies per hour from  stereotyped plates and off a large roll  of news print paper. This is the only  newspaper printed outside of Toronto,  in the-west, on a press of its construction and with such rapidity.

With the exception of Cassiar there is not one of  the mining districts which doe.*, nut  turn in revenue considerably iu excess  of the amount expended in it. Further what is bi-iug expended in the.  mining districts is met by a revenue  increasing in every one of them Iiy  leaps and bounds.  Take the figures of revenue for the  -years-eni_ing-June-_ULh.?lS05,'Jl89i5_.;ind_  1897. Yale.

It is  quite plain that, here is the business  proposition for this province, giving  the maximum of result with the minimum of expenditure. Take West  Kootenny for instance. Here yon  have the most remarUn hie increase of  revenue, more than quintupled in two  years, and nt the same timo the most  glaring disproportion between the  revenue taken out and expenditure  put in, less than one third. This ilis.-  trict is only in its infancy. Its development has only commenced. Some  of its best sections are absolutely  locked np for lack of ti-aiu-poi'tation  facilities. And even at that stag"',  ,-ibly assisted by her sister mining districts, shr is putting this province on  to its financial legs.  fit. We are simply asking to receive  back a larger proportion of what we  contribute, in order that by its expenditure, we may be able to double,  treble and quadruple our present contribution to the general fund. ������������������'���������..

We  want to create a broader feeling of  provincial patriotism than at present  prevails. But it is only common sense  to point out, that it is for the benefit,  of the whole of British Columbia, for  the coast and the island, for- the |farmers of Westminster ns well as lhe  miners of the interior, that Kootenay,  Lillooet, Yale and Cariboo should he  assisted to devplope themselves by the  most liberal expenditure which the  province can afford. If past progress  is any test, another five years will see  West Kootenay alone yielding a  revenue equal to the whole revenue of  the province at the present time. IJy  that time Yale and East Kootenay  will lie pressing her- hard and Lillooet  and Cariboo will have enormously increased their contributions. There  will lie revenue for all and to spare,  only the more expended right now.the  quicker that result will be attained.
