The special general meeting of the  board of trade held on Saturday afternoon lo meet Hon. F. Carter Cotton  was well ntlonded considering the  shortness of the notice and wns a very  interesting and instructive gathering.  Tliere. were present, besides the distinguished visitor, 11. A. Brown,  president, 0. IS. Shaw, secretary. .1. M.  Kellie, .AI. P. P., II. J. Bourne. (J. F.  Lindniark, ,1. Abrahamson, .1. A.  Stone. B. It. Atkins, W. M. Lawrence,  T. E. L. Taylor, XV. F. Crage. T. 3.  Graham, G. I_. Grogan, .fas. Gill, F. B.  AVells, J. B. Sibbald, T. L. Haig. .1.  D. Molson, Dr. McKechnie unci J. M.  Scott. The meeting wns opened by  the president, who stated Hint, its  object was to discuss thc canyon  wagon road mat ter with Mr. Cotton  und gave a sketch of the negotiations  connected with it up to date. At the  close of his remarks an .���������ininiuled  debate took place between the speaker  nnd Mr. Kellie. who licensed Mr.  Brown of political animus, to which  Mr. Brown replied that so far from  having any political feeling in the  matter life was a staunch supporter of  the present provincial government,  nnd what was more wns not straddling  fence like Mr. Kellie.  Mr, Atkins deprecated the unseemly  squabble started by Mr. Kellie in the  presence of the. visitor und Mr. Cotton  then put the government side of the  case. Ue related the events connected  willi the recent visit of Messrs. Brown  and Bourne to "Victoria'and showed  that tile-government were arranging  on their repieseiitutions to commence  the wagon .rond ut once, but were  stopped by .i message from Air. Kellie  .asking theni' to delay proceedings  until they heard from him, and then  Sir. Genelle presented himself and  stated tlmt he would pot put the bout  on the upper river, which decided the  government, to.hold, tho .mitttC'.i'. unlil  they could be assured that. lhe. expenditure on the road could be of  some practical benefit to the development of the Big' Bend, the necessity of  which to llevelstoke the government  quite recognized.  . In answer lo Mr. Brown.'Mr. Cotton  snid that he had promised Mr. Kellie  lo expend the appropriation made for  the.wagon road - on trails in the Big  Bend, if the road itself was not' built.  An animated debute then followed  in which Messrs. Id. J. Bourne. B. it.  Atkins, T. L. Haig, C. F. Lindniark,  J. D. Sibbald. J. JM. Kellie and T. J.  Graham, took prominent, parts nnd  during the course or wliich Mr. Cotton  was no doubt c iinbled lo gain a full  insight" in to the feeling of the hoard  on the mutter, though nothing particularly-new to our readers came out  till near the, end. ^~  It was in answer to a question from  Mr. Brown to Mi. Bourne thai it tame  out that Mr. Bourne had been interesting himself to try and get. a steamer  put on the upper river hy a local  company, and with that view hud  approached Mr. Kellie und asked him  point blank if lie would try and get  the wagon road finished if this local  company could complete arrangements  to |itil the boat on. Mr. Kellie had  answered bim in the negative and told  him lhat by the time they could get  Iheir bout ready the high wnler would  In; over and there would be no use for  life rond this season anyway, but that  he would be willing to luidertnke to  ask llie government to put another  sum in next, year's estimates for Llie  purpose nf completing the ro.ul.  Mr. Kellie udtiiitted tlie accuracy of  ilr. Bourne's recital of tlie convei.u-  tion between theni.  Mr. Cotton then suid that if llie  board could give guarantees lo tlie  government .such as would satisfy a  bunk or nny other business institution  tliat a boat capable of furnishing a  continuous service would be put mi  the river, he would .answer for it that  the road should be finished.  Mr. Kellie thought this a business  proposition. There would then be no  waste of public money. If the rond  wus built nnd the continuous service  wus not' furnished the promoters of  the steunibonl enterprise would refund  the money.  Mr. Bourne could not. agree with  Air. Kellie ab all us to the guarantee,  which he thought tlie government had  no right to demand! Wns it usual to  demand a'guarantee for every trail in  the conn trv.  Mr. Kellie solemnly assured Mr.  Bourne that there were no trails built  in the district whicli were  not  useful.  A vote of thanks wus then passed to  Mr. Cotton nnd the meeting adjourned.  ._ _ _ t.  .25c  Men's Bicvcle Hose. deep0 roll   topi   iaiuy check and  75c  Trapper Murdered.  Goliie.v. B.

Ono of the  districts ho enquired about was Edmonton,  and  the  North AVest  friend  in old setlor in thin country���������advised him not lo go near Edmonton  because that district was flooded with  Galicians,  Thero have been thousands of  tlioso sent out to this country and it  la hard to determine what the result  has already been . It i.s positively  certain that these Galiclana aro not  oa attraction to' tho Anglo-Sajcon ar.d  that theso latter will not como here  more readily because of the knowledge that Galicians nre to be his  neighbors. These letters, sont out  by residents here, are the most effective way of stopping doslrable immigration just as a good letter is the  best thing to induco it. Thero is  only one way to produce the letter  whicli would urge others to come and  thot is by creating congenial nnd good  .surroundings for those already here.  To do this wo must stop Galiclun immigration.  An Engineer's Story  1. All isyondenee    must   be    legibly  irrltteu oa   a  ..do of the papor only. .  I.

McCauley.  M. L. A., and G. R. F. Kirkpatrick  returned last week from lesser Slave  lake, where they had been during the  treaty and scrip negotiations. On th���������?  way out they met Chalmer's surveying and road improving party at work  in the Swan hills. The road is being  greatly  improved.  tA the lako a large amount of scrip  was   bought.    The    intention   of   the  government  and   commissioners    had  been to issuo the scrip surrounded by  as many precautions against transfer  as possible, and to make it necessary  to execute  an  assignment before  the  scrip  could   be registered.    For  scrip  in  this  form  thc   buyers  refused    to  pay   more   than   $30   or  $40,  and   the  halfbreeds therefore promptly refused  to accept it unless it was made payable   to  bearer and   readily  transferable.    Messrs Walker and Cote, after  looking the matter up and consulting  with   tho   treaty   commissioners,    decided that they had authority to alter  the  scrip  and   make      il  payable  to  bearer, which tliey did.   This was acceptable to  the  half  breeds  and  the  scrip  was   issued   and   sold   for  from  $S0 to $105.   This was cash scrip.   The  policy  of surrounding the,scrip  with  all  possible precatutions, and making  it difficult to negotiate���������with a view-  to protecting the halfbreed  grantee���������  is having exactly the opposite effect.  Thc   more   cliflicull   it.   in   to   handle  and  the more chances tho purchaser  haa   Ui   take,   the   less,   naturally  he  will   offer   for   it.     For   this   reason  land  scrip,  tho transfer   ot which   is  rendered     difiicult     hy  tho  technical  formalities with yhich il, ia surrounded, is practically valueless to   the half  breeds,  who    can    get no   purchaser.  Only four laud  scrips were issued at  Lesser Slave lako and these were returned to ho exchanged for cash scrip.  Were  thc  land  scrip as easily transferred  as tho cash scrip it would be  worth a deal more to tho latter.  Messrs McCauley and Kirkpatrick  wero suprised at tho civilized and  well to do appearance of the Indians  at the lake. Not a blanket or shawl  was to bo seen.  had been taken ill.

The  outcome of it was that we laid down  several times on the trip in 'n* barely  caught the steamer with our  freight. Old Nuthcad, the  despaicher, he mado me walk tho  carpet, 'n' said if l didn't do better  than that he'd drop me hack on coal  again. I hadn't been running fast  freight very lonp; 'n' I left him feeling  rather testy, but I didn't say anything 'bout Conroy, as I thoug'it Unit  during our lay over in this end he'd  kinder pound his ear 'n' slv.n off the  booze 'n' bo all right  ~;oi'ig back.

The first bent  had beeu raised, but owing to insufficient propping the heavy Umber came  crashing down, carrying everything  hefore it and crushing four men, probably in two or three cases fatally. 1 he  injured are: Duncan Mclntyre, Henry  McDougahty. , Fred Browne, and J.

The great  wonder is that a number were not  instantly killed, for there were - over  100 men at tho raising.  the railway company but from mem  bers of Mr. Grcenway's own cabinet.  It ls also known for a certainty In  the city that President Mellln lias  been sending messages to Premier  Greenway calling upon him to stand  hy his agreement made during Mr.  Mellin's recent visit and that Greenway can give no satisfactory answer  to his nppeals.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier appreciated, tho  motive, but hoped matters might yet  be so arranged as to render arbitration by the sword unnecessary.  Sir Charles Tupper echoed devoutly the hope of "a peaceful arrangement  and lauded colonial devotion to the  empire. Such acts showed how tho  colonies rallied to the support of the  mother country.

Windermere district, in East Kootenay, ia attracting a good deal of attention  from  both  prospectors     and  men looking for prospects.     Back of  the town are a number     of copper  claims on which work has been done  for several years.      The ore  is rich,  hut the veins do not appear to be in  place. On the headwaters of the Toby  and Horse Thief creeks, which empty  into the Columbia helow Windermere,  several properties are being developed  by men who mean business.     On one  oi* the claims In the Delphino group,  on the north fork of Toby creek, about  20 miles from Windermere, a shaft is  down 140 feet, and between 80 and 100  feet of drifts have been run     from a  level about 50 feet     down.      Besides  the. outcrop on the surface has been  stripped 1,160 feet. From these workings 20 tons of ore were sacked and  packed to the Columbia     river     and  taken thence to Golden by boat.     The  ore was then shipped     to the     Trail  smelter.     This week the returns wero  received, and they are so good that the  owners, R. A. Kimpton, George Stark  and  Arthur Harrison,      believe they  have a mine.     The ore is galena carrying a small percentage     of copper  and a little gold, The smelter returns  were $102  a ton.      After paying all  charges, tho oro netted     tha owners  about $70 a ton.     This is the     first  shipment of ore from tho Windermere  district.  Proprietor.

R. P. Pettipieck. Rec. Sec.  If any   member nf  any legislature  ever put in an  uncomfortable'hour it  wiis Mr. Kellie at the  board  of trade  meeting on Saturday last.     He had to  face his leader. Mr. Cotton, surrounded  by the most prominent business men  of the city, men, muiiy  of  whom had  even up to a year ago supported  him,  but by whom he is utterly discredited  and disowned.    Hu had to listen while  Mr. Cotton  snull'ed  out with a   contemptuous word the lode star *of  Mr.  Kellie's political existence���������the  public  meeting.    He had to sec  Mr.  Cotton  put, to one side all his elaborate  arguments about trails and the canyon and  the   nine   mile,   riffle,   which   he has  imported     into     the   discussion   and  declare that if a sleamer  was   put on  the   road   would   be    finished.     And  finally he  had   to   hear   Mr.   Bourne  show the utter humbug and insincerity  of liis opposition lo the wagon road by  proving conclusively that so  long us  he   got   lhe   appropriation   for    that  purpose into his own power lhis year  he was perfectly  willing  to vote  for  another  impropriation   for the same  object,   next   session.       There   was  a  laudable spirit evinced on the  part of  some   of   the  speakers   to    take   Jlr.  Kellie seriously and try to believe that  he was acting at all  events conscientiously.   But after Mr. Bourne's disclosure such charitable excuses become  impossible.     Mr. Kellie voted for this  appropriation in 1S0S.     He voted  and  worked    for     this    appropriation    in  Januaiy 1800.    He is  willing  to  vote  and work for it again in January 1000,  and yet we are asked to believe that he  is sincere in asserting that it would be a  wanton   waste   of   public    money to  expend   it   in   July' 1809. 'There are  limits to human credulity and in  this  case ilr. Kellie has overstepped them.  As   for    Mr.   Cotton,   he    occupies  exactly the position which tho Hekald  pointed out a month ago.    The difference between  him  and  the  board.of  trade is that the hoard considers that  the wagon road should  be built anyhow, seeing   that   it   is   an admitted  necessity I'or a continuous steamboat  service on the upper river,  that part  of it has been built already at a useless  expense,  unless   it is completed  and  that tin appropriation has been already  niaile by the legislature, for  this  purpose and no other.    Mr. Cotton on the  other hand requires a guarantee  that  the steamer will be put on   before he  will continue, the construction  of  the  road, but at the same time lie.  pledges  himself lo finish the road in the event  of the hoard being able lo procure  the  steamboat and a  regular service.    In  the. 1*1 khar.o'ss opinion lheDhoard  has  the right of   the  argument.    At  the  same   time   Mr.   Cotton's   proposal   is  near   enough  to  their   own   ideas  tn  remove the wagon road  difficulty  out  of  lhe   way   of   further  negotiations  towards getting  u steamboat on  the  river and washy the presidenthearlily  acceptcd   as   such.        As   far   as  t.he  1_I~.~~~ai.i~ is concerned it is  inclined  to  suspect, lhat  only   a desiie  to  let  his  supporter. Mr. Kellie. down  as -easily  as possible prevented Mr. Cotton from  acceding promptly  to the  utmost  of  thu hoard's very reasonable demands.  But   .Mr.   Kellie's  peculiar warp of  intellect seized  on   this  guarantee  in  another way.     His  leader may  have  meant.himtou.se  the compromise in  order To   square hini'seTf,  if~ possible.  "m LEADING ST0R  WHB"BB  *W_A_S   IT *?

All this wagon road  building, for whicli Kellie is tho  responsible party, lias been useless to  anybody since tlie day it. was done.  Perhaps Mr. Kollie will put his hand  in his pocket and return all the  thousands of dollars of "good government money" wasted in these fruitless  endeavors to benelit the Lardeau  townsite at the expense of the rest of  the community. If he thinks the idea  such an excellent one he had better  lead the way in putting it in  practice.  THE PASSING SHOW.  TRAINS SAVED BY WATCHMEN  Disaster to Passengers on the C. P. R.  Averted by Official's Bravery.  Vancouver, July 17���������Harry H'mey^  night, watchmen of the Cherry Creek  district of the C. P. It., is the hero of  a brave and successful effort to save  two trains. Near midnight on Saturday the bridge at Cherry Creek w.i=>  binned down. The Imperial Limited  was mining westward tnwatds the  destroyed bridge, and lhe train bearing -100 journalist.'- w.is coming eastward behind lhe Atlantic. Flyer. If  Honey had not, been a strong=*wimrner  and a l.rave man, the results might  have heen appalling. But the C. P. R.  has a fashion of placing the right, men  in Iiie right place, which helps lo  account for their small percentage of  bad accidents.  Be lhat as it may. however. Honey  had a swiftly running swollen 11101111-  luin si ream to ford and swim hefore  he could flag llie first due train, and  he had to get. hack an.l flag the other  train as well. This lie did, keeping  his lantern dry by holding it far above  his head.  The passengers on bolh trains, and  on the journalists' excursion train,  have heaid of the brave man's heroism  and Honey is to be richly rewarded,  while overtures are being made to the  Humane Society for n medal. Honey  is 11 simple man. and tells, his story in  a matter-of-fact wny, biff, those who  have looked at the furiously rushing  waters beneath Cherry Creek bridge  affirm that Harry Honey has performed one of the bravest and most  heroic deeds of modern times. The  journalists are stalled at North Bend;  Mine owners and claim holders, who  wish that their properties should be  represented in the B.C. exhibit at  Paris next year should remember that  specimen* have to lie. in Victoria by  August loth. Specimens must not, he  less than six or more than nine inches  in diameter. The Hisralu mentions  these facts merely to draw the attention of those interested.to the necessity  of gelling iheir specimens to Victoria  us soon as possible. It, is useless lo  dilate ou the advantage bolh to tho  district and to individual holders of  having North Koolenay well represented in the collection of B. C._  minerals, which will attract the  attention of capitalists and mining  men from all over ihe world at Paris  next summer. A blind man could see  that point with both eyes shut.  So Says the Sage of New Denver.  A certain citizen, admirable iu every  respect, became addicted' to drink.  All insensibly he became a slave to his  appetite, and spent the greater pait of  his earnings every week in a ceitain  saloon. Hisagonized.wifewhosiiw herself and children on the brink of starvation and her husband in danger of  becoming a castaway, went to the  proprietor of the saloon mid begged  him not to sell any mure drir.k to her  husband, who was going to ruin, and  who was neglecting to provide for his  family, in order that he might, indulge  his appetite for wliich he gave his  money to. the saloon keeper. The  latter said: " Madam,' I am licensed  to sell liquor. My business is , to sell  liquor lo all who can pay for it. ] pay  rent. I pay a high license fee, and I  will sell drink to any man who asks  for it. I cannot help what you say;  it is not niy business. -So long as your  husband comes to my place with  money lo pay for the drink he asks  for lie will get il."  ���������" I never in my life," says John  Wanainaker, "used such a I lung as a  poster -or dodger or handbill.

So  while of course Mr. Cotton only  meant a definite guarantee that a  regular steam service would be piovided would have to precede the  completion of the road. Mr. Kellie  twisled the word into the jueposieroiis  notion that if a company undertook  to put on a steamboat, and the road  was completed in c-iiM'quence, and  then for some reason or oilier a regular service was not maintained, in I bat.  case the company would have lo refund the nuinev spent on finishing the  road to lbe government. "So,'' .Mr.  Kellie complacently added: " there  will be no waste cf public inoii-y."  For a person who wants to see the  Big Bend opened up Kellie is unique.

It N being ji'-siduoii'-ly insinuated by  Kellie's heelers in quartets where il is  rule dated lo do most good that the  board r.f trade has ������iirceeiled in locking  up the four thousand dollars, appropriated by ,the legisl.it nre for tho  i of the wagon  road  for an  incur the natural   risks  of  navigation i eompietio;  and the ,1-m.l chances of  trade,   but if | indefinite   period  and   .ue   preventing  and    pliilan-  fruiii  by any chance the}' failed   to   make  a j  those   eminent   pal riots  .success   of   Iheir   venture   h  further  mulct.

(onr.se Mr. Cotton never   intended and  has not llie smallest  intention   of  demanding anything so absiml.     .At the  same time, as Kellie likes lhe  idea   so  much, had  be  not. belter begin  himself.  There has been under hi.s regime a  lot of construction of wagon loads in  hisdistrict,upl,"ish creek from Lardeau,  for instance, over whicli a wagon  never yet went, and in and out round  the head of the Arm between Lardcnti  and Thomson's Landing, over which  nothing ever yet went at all, except  some unfortunate,' who had lost his  would ' tliropi:-t������,   Kellie  and   Coursier.  j.i expending   it,   for   the  benefit   of  Of i .-.ulferirig rr.iiiifry. And the qii"M.iou  " Who i.s de Doaid of a Trade?" is  again ringing through the st recta. As  a matter of (old fact if it.had not. been  for Kellie's sudden opposition to an  expenditure, for which he has from  time lo time voted in the house aud  for which he is on his own .statement  perfectly willing to voto again next  session, work on the wagon road  would by this lime be in full swing  and the workingmen of this place be  reaping the benefits of the expenditure.  t  ���������-Advertising is like learning���������"a  little is a dangerous thing."--P.
