Only on the 3rd of  this month Laurier was pouring into  the sympathetic ear of the Toronto  Globe a thousand and one reasons  why it was impossible to send a Canadian contingent to South Africa, He  suid it could not be done without  summoning parliament to grunt tl.e  money.' There was no inennee to  Canada and no legal'method in consequence by which the government  could furnish troops. For these  reasons the question of a Canadian  contingent hnd not even been discussed  by the government. This nil on the  3rd of this month. Now we have  word that the Minister of Militia has  been for the last two months making  active prepiirutiorif for furnishing this  very contingent, which according 'to  Laurier could not be constitutionally  furnished and hud never been even  discussed in the cabinet. Somebody  must surely lie toying with t.he truth,  whicli simply is that Boss Tarte hates  lhe very idea of furnishing this contingent and would not have allowed it  to go ut all hud not the rising wave of  patriotic indignation scared him from  his disloyal and traitorous course. It  is getting about time for loyal nnd  self respecting Canadians to make up  their minds to squelch this man Turte  at the.very earliest opportunity.  Trouble on the Illecillewaet.  With commendable eneigy a large  number of .the settlers across the  Illecillewuet have repaired' tl.e bridge  at McCarty's slaughter house and  rendered it fit for traffic. Considerable dissatisfaction exists among those  who have taken this slep at the pro-  'posed location of the new bridge,  which is nearly a mile higher np  tlie stream. As those settlers who  will he chiefly benefitted by the new  bridge refused to help in repairing the  old one, those who did the work  threaten to put a gate unci prevent  the others from using it. A. Williamson,- who is one of those whose road to  town will be considerably shortened  by the new bridge, appealed to Gold  Commissioner Coursier to help him  against the settlers, who wish': to prevent him from using the old bridge,  hut wus informed that the gold commissioner could do nothing foii''hiin.  The bridge was repaired partly out of  the materials afforded by the old  structure, but the covering is new  stuff, slabs provided by those who did'  the work. The situation ; is further  complicated by the fact that the  southern abutment'is on F. McCarty's  land,' and he gave notice to the officials  here some time ngo that he intended  to close up the road there, so that a  new locution for the new bridge  .hccnuie necessary'. . At. thesnnio time  while commending the energy of those  settlers who felt lhat they could not  wail foraroad into town till the cud  of the year, the Herald scarcely considers them justified in closing the  bridge ngainst their neighbors and  'Idoes not think the gold commissioner's  policy of masterly- inactivity at all  defensible.  KOOTENAY   EXHIBITION  A Proposal to Establish a Mineral Show of Our Own  ITS   ADVANTAGES   DISCUSSE1)  *4*������*******������<i������**+������**������*^ y*&4������**���������ve$0**������W0ihf0**������*rM*r**"^  People are asking what is the reason  for the so-called war going on now in  the' Transvaal and some appear to  have mnde up their minds that no  valid . caso.. can he given. But underneath all the solemn talk of the diplomats about the franchise and the  suzerainity.the reaI reason crops up as  plain as lhe big lime dyke in the Lardeau. It is that Mr. Boer has made  up.liis7.mind to try conclusions with  the 'iver'dnnite Englander," ns to which  of,them shall.be .supreme inuSouth  ���������Africa'. Such a. decision - may appear  sufficiently astounding as to he'alliibst  incredible, but the whole trend of  events po'inlsoitt- that in their supreme  folly unci dense , ignorance the" Boers  have actually made up their minds to  put this issue to the final test of  war. The mere fact that the Orange  Free State, a. Boor republic'.which has  now existed in freedom and independence for the last half century  under t.he protection und legis of the  empire, has joined tlie Transvaal in  the fools' attempt, lo shake off the  very presence of the lvUed British  power, is quite sufficient to prove tliis  point. Theie is not a shadow of a  doubt that hnd the Transvaal chosen  to treat British subjects nnd capital  within its boundaries with the'ordinary decency which one civilized power  shows to another, both the Transvaal  republic and the Ornnge Free Stale  might have continued to enjoy the  blessings of self-government without  molestations from the Empire for  ever.   However they have chosen to  abide���������-^-by-s^���������the^^ur.bitrunient of.  arms and the only possible result can  he the absorption of 'hoth republics  into the.South African possessions of  the Empire.  Because   either  the   Boers   or   the  British have got to  be paramount iu  South Africa,  and  while, tlie British  have   been   hoth  virtually  and really  the ruling nation for the last couple of  cent..lies,   of late   the   Boers   of the  Transvaal, flushed  with  success  in  a  couple   of   skirmishes   and   misinterpreting Gladstone's sentimental generosity for British timidity,  hnve taken  upon themselves to act as if they were  the   paramount race.     This attitude  wns not only galling lo British pride,  but'   rendered   the   position   of    the  Briiish power at the Cipe  intolerable.  Upon it fell the duty of policing the  country and of overawing the natives,  who out number the whites, both Boers  and British by ten to one.   ��������� To Great  Britain at the time (if  the  Zulu ;war,  when lho great   confederacy  of the  fighting races of   the interior under  Cetewuyo  tineatened  to sweep  both  the   Transvaal   .epuhlic   and  Orange  Free Statti (int of existence, the Boer-  turned  for  help,   which'-was  at once  iK-ciiidetl,   villi  the  resuli that at   a  ciinsideral.li' sacrifice of  British  lives  the   onward rush   of the Zulus   was  checked and their confederacy broken  up.     And at this day,  if the  strong  arm of   the Empire   were  stayed   in  South Africa, the extermination of the  Boers by the blacks would only he fit  question of time.   But if Great Britain  lias to do the police work  of South  Africa she can only do it effectually as  long as   her   prestige is   unimpaired.  Krnger undertook-to impair it and it  is necessary in  the interests  of the  whole white supremacy that,the position of affairs which enabled him to  do  so   should  be reorganized.     The  approaching   extinction, of the  Httje  Boer republics   in   the   heart  ot the  country   will   help   to   simplify   the  South African question inuneusely.  Copper's Bright Future.  The outlook bears evidence that the  price of copper will be kept at its  present market rate for n long time to  come. Copper stocks may respond t.o  speculative movements and hit nearly  every note in the gamut of bulls and  hears, hut the market price of tl.e red  niPtal' will not vary much from its  present figures. In a word, the demand equalB the supply, and purchasers find profit in its handling. It  pays-to use copper, in lhe industrials,  and'as-long as it does there will be no  falling-of.In its price.  -The prospecting for-copper propositions is meeting success in..eveiy  portion of the great mineral wesfand  northwest. Copper -prospects are  being developed into producing mines,  and the mines are being- capitalized in  healthy round figures. The investing  capital in the east is hungry for copper  stocks, aud very many who have been  content with their little holdings in  small dividend paying pursuits, aie  putting their money in copper securities yielding larger interest, on their  capital.  It is said there is no trouble to sell a  copper mine in New York or in Boston: All that the would-be purchaser  wishes to know is that there is merit  in the mine, and that a reasonable  price is wanted for it. The capitalist  who cuii be satisfied upon ihese points  becomes a ready purchaser.���������Western  Mining "World.  The Big Bond Robbery  The latest papers from London announce the expected return of.Crick,  the young clerk arrested at Donald, in  the first week' of this month, as he  sailed from Montreal \yith Detective-  inspector Abbot t. who with Serg.

The Daily'Mail,  which states ir. one issue that' Crick  wns arrested in the. Klondike. h*is a  ridiculous special describing the course  taken by thetwoyoimgmen at Gulden.  It says they enlisted a body guard of  men, whom they arumd to the teeth,  engaged miners of experience, -laid in  provisions, pm chased horses nnd  formed "a well-laid plan of campaign,  which should sooner or later have assured them possess-ion of first rate  claims." Christie got sick of the trip  'about200 miles beyond the..town."of  Don������ld"iind pretended lo have seriously injured his knee in stepping over a  log and must "go for a doclo'1."

Starling only  four  ���������ivfive years ago, in   the   face  of -con-  idernlile   indifference' and   lhe  usual  .ick of co-operation from   those  most,  '���������oncerneil, the hustling Spokane men,  vho have had the,management of this  fair, have seen it rise into  tine  of the.  most valued institutions of the Northwest. The fair was oi igini.lly intended!  to illustrate nnd advertise the splendid  .igricultur.il   resources   of   the   great  grain, fruit and stock  raising district,  of which Spokane is  the  capital,-but.'  as  the   immense  mineral   wealth   of  Koolenay   and   Washington    rapidly  came   to   the   front   ns. the supreme.,  factor in the upbuilding of Spokane,  the mineral exhibit at fiist started  as  a mere annexe to the fruit   fair, began  to    overshadow    in   importance the  parent  exhibition,! until   this year  iti  was  made  the  chief  feature of, thei ���������*���������  exposition.   Now while recognizing to-  the full the business energy and enter-  nrise   which   has   made   Spokane  the  .���������hief mining centre of this country, of-  ���������\hich the importance: now.attiiehingi  to its mineral exposition  is   only an1  illustration,     and   while   recognizing  ���������il������n the great value .which  the annual,  exhibition-of ores lias been  to-Koote-/  nay.   the   Hekald    would    like'   to-  snggestthat.it is getting "about timo!  that Kootenny held nn annual mineral,  and mining exhibition on her own ac-/  count within h'er horders.

In'the first place we shall never pet-  together   a really representative*' or ���������  satisfnetory.exhibit of our  Kootenny,*  ores until we localize it  in our midst."-  Spokane is a long way ' off  and ��������� the '  results   of-going   to   the: trouble   oft  packing out specimens, collecting and\  sending .them ..down   tliere-are not1,  immediately apparent.   They do  not ���������  come quick enough  to appeal; to the-  average prospector and  he'does  not ���������  take suflicient interest in  the successor the exhibition as an  institution  to'  stir* hiin   up    tp   any   extraordinary'*  exertion in this direction.-. But if we  had a   mining exposition  established,  right in thu district, close  nt hand, im  which every.Kooteriaian'would take a-  patriotic intei est and pride in helping i  to make it a success, the lesults of an.  appeal for specimens would be very**  different nnd far more successful.

Tbe Clipper is an exceedingly fine prospect. * A 29 foot tunnel  was run in this season and tapped the  lead ut about 10 feet below ground and  with an excellent showing of 8 inches  of high grade ore. The Clipper is  situated about half a mile from the  Great Western Mines Co.'s properties  andnvithin a mile of the lake shore.  There is plenty of Water and timber  on the ground and this property-  should prove a very valuable one.  m  Shamrock-Columbia Race-  Monday's race resulted in an  easy  win for the Columbia, which was a  mile ahead at the finish.

Once   in   our  midst the rest, is'easy.  much  easier at,'"  all   events   than   away   at.   Spokane.

Thirdly,   we. in 'Kootenay want to  know each other  better and  to   pull 1  together more for the  common  good1  than we do.    Onr people are scattered  in little  mining  camps for the  most '  part nnd eveiy body is crowing all hy '  his lonesome on top  of his particular  hole in the ground.. This is to a certain   extent   inevitable,   but   greuter ���������  community of feeling would do us  nn  harm, bnt on  the  contrary,1 a great'  deal of good.     A "Kootenay   Mining  Exposition  would afford just  such a  rallying point as is requiri-d to bring ���������  us together   and   get   to   know  each  other, and at. the same  time present  an excellent opportunity for our boards  of trade and other  business bodies to  meet   by their  represent atives    and i  formulate    plans    for    the common  welfare of the district in the future.  It will doubtless   cost. money and'  take a good deal of time nnd trouble-  to get such an institution ou its legs  and tarry  it   on   to   success,   hut nil  expendituie   of  any   kind   would?he  amply repaid hy the benefits^,which it  woulel confer on  Kootenay  and  the  impulse   it  would give  to   our  chief,  ind'.i. trv.

TOO MUCH PREACHING.  The following suggestive sentiments aro expressed by one oC our  exchanges in tlio State*:  "Preaching is ;i gootl Lhiiig il' il  is uot overdone. The pulpit lias not  lost its power nor will it as long us  the work! stands hut lt is crippled  sometimes by undertaking too muoh.  This town is a fair - sample. Here  tliere is preaching upon preaching.  The result is that tho town is put to  sleep spiritually, lhe sermons net thin'"*  and the preachers get tlieir brainpans exhausted. Fewer sermons with  more In them would bo lighter work  for the 'preacher, and more helpful  for the congregations.  "The average preacher is expected  to prepare two strong, sane and serious sermons for Sunday and a ser-  monet for-.Wednesday evening prayer  meeting.������������������ Then he must do a'-round  of social visiting that is interminable.  He must conduct funerals and weddings. He must stir up his chuveli  ollicers,'. keep..a look out upon all lho  oranizalions of the church, assist all-  reform movements, dine tint, go to  religious associations and study between times. This sort of business  results in blue Mondays ? for the  preacher and'sometimes' for .the. people;-"It is wearing on the nerves anil  hot-strengthening- to spiritual naturo.

It was found that they had  not called at the: residences of any  of the people near the lakes and the  worst, was feared. Their canoe ha������  since been found drifting on the laic*.  It is supposed they Wore overtaken  by rough weather, the canoe capsized  and that, they wore drojvncd. The  bodies have not boon, recovered yet.,  W. G.

Lung Alore, a Chinaman, was arretted  un tiie mill flat last Saturday night on  suspicion   of   being   implicated  in    a  SOME PRESS OPINIONS  On Our Loyal Minister of Public Works  Mr. Tarte  Commenting on an interview given  to the Paris Figaro by Israel Tarte.  tlie Manchester, England, Evening  Mail says:  "Tbe  Canadian  Minister of Public  Works,   vvho  is   now   on   a   visit   to  Europe, bus lici.'ii captured  by  a  wily  interviewer, and made to commit himself I o feome very .-ingtilar views.    It is  for tohliiuie, rather unusual for a Government ofiicial of a Briiish possession  indwell delii'liti'dlv upon the strength  uf foreign . . llli'i:..    The  Minister de-  .lareil Canada to be "lhe finest French  ninny in tiie world," and then, as an  Lflerthonght, he qualified   bis  remark  Iiy adding "whilst being very loyal  to  the Brilhsh Empire."    He  complained  that in Canada ihey gal  only   French  news  which   vvas  to  I'm  dit-credit   of  France,   anil   suggi-Med   as   a   reason  that   the   messages   from   Paris    are  transmitted via London.    When asked  whether   he   meant   that   the   cables  were suppressed or uttered  here,  he  significantly   remarked,   "I can only  say that   vve  receive only  despatches  which   are   hostile   to   France."   The  insinuation is not a pleasant one,  notwithstanding   its    absurdity.     There  are 2,000,000  Frenchmen   in   Canada;  one fourth of the deputies and senators  and tive ministers out of 12are French,  whilst, over 200 journals in the  French  language   are   published   there.   This  gives some idea of the influence of the  French-Canadians���������an influence which  is rapidly growing,    Here is one proof.  Genernl Hutton recently decided  that  in the French volunteer regiments the  commands should in  future  be given  in French, n large number of the men  not understanding a word of English.  This concession does not look as  if vve  suspect the loyalty  of the   Flench  in  the Dominion, and there is no need  of the minister at public works'  direct  Franco-Canadian    cable     to    combat  what he is  pleased   to  call  lying and  hatred."    One   may   be  pardoned  for  suggesting   that   in   this   remarkable  interview   he  does  not  display  much  affection   for the  English   vvho  have  placed him���������a foreigner���������in a position  of trust iu the government of a British  colony.  The Winnipeg Telegram says: In  his celebrated Figaro interview. Air.  Tarte, besides declaring that France i.s  his country and that his heart, blends  for hei1 suffering!", lamented that there  was no French press association .lo  send French Canadian journals news  wilh the proper Galician color. He  regretted that at the time of the  Fashoda affair, tbe cable news was too  British; nnd loid how it keeps him  anil bis sons nil their time properly  representing French opinion to lbe  people of Canada;  "Bear in tniiiil." said be, "tint my  sons who are directors of a great  Canadian tiewsoaper. are obliged  every day lo make refutation of despatches concerning Frcm h iitVnii-s."  The zeal with which Air. T.irte and  bis precious sons nre endeavoring tr  reflect French opinion in Camilla, is  shown by their ialtitude on the Transvaal question. Tbey have all along  taken lhe anti-British side of the  controversy and arc most vigorously  protecting against Canada doing anything otlic'i.-illy to a-sist Bi-ilniii in llie  pre.-i'iit war.
