 Has Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hur  dreds of Properties that can be Made,/' ^  Dividend Paying .Mines.   -  F-TFTH   FEAR---NO. <.<>.  'Oi..-  '%  ��**fto  NELSON.  BTITTTSH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY   AUGUST as, ,1891  Has  Three  Smelters   in   Successful   Operation,  and  Enough   Ore, in Sight  to   Run ,  Several   More. ,  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR:  CHECKED   BY   THE   COURTS.  The Management of the Hall Mines Buns  Against a Snag in Its' Officiousness.  floury l_. Croasdile, general manager of  the I Tall Mine!?, undertook to regulate the  business of the Nelson- Klectric Light company, this week, and thereby Henry \L  Croasdaile occasioned the arrest of .John  Scoley, a man in his employ.  For many mouths-the Nelson Klectric  Light company and the lLall .Mines company 'have, been fairly good neighbors.  The mining company had an agreement  with the light conipany for the use of 00  inches of water from the light company's  penstock, and upon the strength of this  has been using over lot) miners' inches. In  addition to this the mining company has  from time to time tampered with the  light company's water gate, to the annoyance of the light company's electrician! Three weeks ago, as a result of the  opening ot the light company's water  gate, the company's property was considerably damaged, and a. loss of . 1,805.85  was sustained by the light company. The  Hall Mines was notified that this damage  was occasioned by the interference of one  of its employees-James Christian���with  the light company's plant, and that the  light company would hold the Hall Mines  responsible for the loss or damage occasioned thereby. In reply II. IL Croasdaile, for the Hall Mines, denied any responsibility whatever. sand then the trouble commenced.  The light company came to the conclusion that since II. I_. Croasdaile would  not pay for the damage occasioned by his  company's employee, it would supply the  mining company with only such water as  its contract called for. A gate was put iii  at the head of the mining company's  Hume which was regulated so as to supply 00 Colorado miner's inches of water,  the most liberal of the several statutory  inches of water. About the same time it  was found that the light company's machines wore overloaded, and the Hall  Mines smelter being supplied with light  over an isolated wire, the mining company was notified that it would be impossible for the light company to supply  any further light. This happened on  Wednesday.  The Hall Mines consequently found  itself without light aud with no more  water than its contract called for. The  absence of the light was inconvenient,  but this was nothing compared to the inconvenience ot being obliged to get along  with 00 inches of water. Sixty inches of  water were not sul'licient to granulate the  slag from the big furuace, and consequently the mining conipany wa�� put the  expense of working a double shift of nine  slag pullers at a cost of about $45 every  -IS hours. To overcome this difficulty the  Hall Mines made fin application to Judge  Forin. for an ex parte injunction restraining the light company from interfering  with the mining company's water or light  supply. This application e.-inie before  Judge Forin Wednesday evening,' who  refused to grant the same, as it had not  been shown that the light company had  cut' off the, water supply contracted lfor  or that it could continue to supply electric light without damage to its own  property.  The following night H. E. Croasdaile  took the law into his own hands, and  John Scoley, an employee of the Hall  Mines, was instructed to break the lock  upon the light company's water gate,  which restricted the miuiug company's  water supply to 00 miner's inches. In addition to this the mining company set a  guard of twelve men upon the gate to  prevent the light company from recovering possession of its own property. This  forced the light company to cause-a warrant to be issued for the arrest of Scoley.  Armed with this provincial constable luce  repaired to the gate, accompanied" by the  secretary of the light company. Scoley  had left in the meantime, but a guard of  two men remained. These men were formally forcibly ejected from the light  company's property and the broken lock  upou the water gate replaced.  Friday afternoon application was  again made by the Hall Miues for an ex  parte injunction to restrain the light  company from failing to comply with its  contract to supply the Hall mines with GO  inches of water. This time the application was supported by an affidavit made  by Paul Johnson, the company's smelter  superintendent, to the effect that there  were not 00 inches of water passing  through the mining company's flume:  that therefore the mining company was  put to a considerable expense for the services of slag pullers, and that the light  conipany could supply ample water without inconvenience to itself if it so desired.  The light company opposed the application for the injunction, contending that it  had not, nor did it intend to evade the  provisions of the contract for supplying  the Hall Mines with (>0 inches of water.  Au affidavit made by E. W. Cummings  respecting the supply of water that was  passing through the mining company's  flume was tendered. As sufficient time  had not been at the disposal of the company's counsel to have the affidavit sworn  to, thecourt summoned Mr. Cummings for  examination. To the court he testified  that he had measured the water llowing  through the mining company's flume'in  the middle of July. At that time there  were over 150 miner's inches. On Thursday he again measured the water flowing  through the flume aud it amounted to 1.58  iniuer's inches. He testified that he put  in a six inch water gate, connecting the  mining company's flume with the light  company's penstock, and that lie had set  the valve of the gate so that  it  would  supply 00 Colorado miner's inches, since  which time no change had been made to  his knowledge, lie further testified that  the Colorado standard for water was  more liberal than the California standard and that it was practically the same  standard for measurement tis set out in  the mineral act of the province.  W. A. Macdonald, counsel for' the Hall  Mines, then made the plea that if the  company was supplying the full amount  .of water called for by its.contract there  could be no harm in grii.iit.ing an injunction for a short period, but the court did  not see it that way. The application was  therefore refused, but permission was  given the mining company to apply to  justice Drake for an injunction if it could  be shown that the statements of engineer  Cummings were uot correct. The court  allowed the light company counsel fees.  The light conipany was represented by  P. Mc*L. Forin. of Rossland.  ft is to be regretted that any such mis-  uuderstandingshouldhave arisen between  the light company and the Hall Mines.  That it has arisen is manifestly owing to  the high handed policy adopted by 11. 15.  Croasdaile of the Hall Mines. It cannot  be expected that any company will allow  its property to be damaged with impunity, nor can it be expected that one company will allow another company to take  and retain forcible possession of its property. , It is evident that the Hall Mines  require more than 00 inches of water, but  it is equally evident that the manager of  the mining company is not likely, in pursuing his present policy, to secure any increased supply upon reasonable terms.  The Hall Mines is a big concern, but it  cannot ride rough-shod over every smaller  concern. It can demand its pound of  flesh, nothing more.  COUNTY COURT CASES.  THERE ARE ENOUGH ALREADY.  The C. <_ K. S. N. Co. Secure Judgment Against  Agent Bishop for $729.86. '  The case of the. C. & K. S. N. Co. vs.  Bishop, occupied the whole of Thursday's  sitting of the county court. Jn this case  the plaintiff company was endeavoring to  recover the sum of $88S.80 from the lde-  lendant, who had acted as their agent at  Kaslo, aud had collected the amount on  account of freight charges. The defendant set up a counter claim foi- six months  wages at $100 per month, two months at  $75 per month, aud sundry accounts aggregating close upou $100. It was a jury  case, but the only point which judge  Forin would allow to go to the jury was  the "question "of?" Bishop's remuneration  during the two months following the taking over of the C. <_���-1v. company's business by the Canadian Pacific Railway  company. From the date of this transfer  Bishop was employed by the Canadian  Pacific Railway company to act as their���  agent at $75 per month. He also cleaned  up some arrears of the C. & 1 .. company's  business for which the company was prepared to allow him $25 per month, but he  claimed $75. Judge Forin expressed the  opinion that $87.50 per month would be  ample reward for the services rendered.  The jury allowed $-10 per month. For  .services reudered in saving goods during  the high water judge Forin allowed  Bishop an offset of $29, The claim of $(500  for wages was not allowed, as it was  shown that the defendant was working  for a different company at the time.  Judgment was entered for the C. & K.  company for $729.80. J. H. Bowes and R.  M. Macdonald appeared for the plaintiff  company. '   ������ '  The Railway Claims the Timber.  In the case of ''.Ten-ill vs Carr, Wilson,  and others, A. M. Johnson, on behalf of  the plaintiff, moved for a continuation of  an injunction granted on August 3rd tore-  strain the defendants from cutting the  timber off the Apis mineral claim near  Sandon. The reason advanced by the  plaintiff for the continuance of tiie injunction wa.s that she was unable to secure  a surveyor for the purpose of having the  Apis surveyed and, therefore, could not  proceed to the trial of the action. The  defendants were wood choppers, who,  under a permit from the Kaslo & Slocan  Railway company, were cutting timber  off the claim aud selling the same as cord  wood in the town of Sandon. A. Whealler  of Kaslo, opposed the application on the  ground that as the claim was located  within the lands granted to the Kaslo 6c  Slocan Railway company, the plaintiif  had no right to the same until she had  compensated the railway company for  any loss or damage. He offered an affidavit to the effect that the timber on the  land was worth $500, and held that the  railway company was entitled to compensation for this amount. The injunction  was granted upon the plaintiffs depositing  a security for damages to the amount of  $250. As the railway company's grant to  the land is subject to the rights of free  miners, a lively fight over this timber  may be expected when the respective  parties get down to the trial of their action. It would be interesting to know if  the government.is collecting stum page on  on the timber already cut off this land.  SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  A. W.

The chief business that came before the  city council Monday evening was the consideration of a by-law for the purpose of  limiting the number of 'liquor licenses to  be granted in the city. The by-law was  introduced by alderman llillyer and was  advanced to its final stage. The formal  notice for the reconsideration of the vote  upon the third reading was given by  alderman Teetzel.  The by-law provides that the number  of hotel licenses shall uot exceed fifteen  until the population of Nelson shall number 5000 or more, aud then one additional  license shall be granted for each thousand  people over 5000. The saloon licenses are  restricted to five, and if at any time this  number shall become reduced through revocation, or other cause, no other or,more  saloon licenses shaii be granted. Shop or  bottle licenses are restricted to two  licenses. Restaurant licenses are limited  to three, being the number at present  issued.  The council passed mayor Houston's  salary account for the past four months  amounting to $000.00. The other accounts  passed were:  Bunk of Montreal, interest on over il nift     s ,"_ 110  Alex.

The by-law limiting the number of  liquor licenses in the city, was finally  passed.   ';��� .  Mayor Houston was authorized to purchase the water pipe necessary for laying  in the rock cut on the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard railway.  On motion of alderman llillyer, seconded by alderman Gilker, the council decided to improve the roadway to the N.  & P. S. depot near the brick yard.  A communication was received from the  acting government agent, enclosing a  copy of a communication from premier  Turner in reference to licenses issued in  Nelson prior to the incorporation of the  city, in which the premier stated that the  corporation of the city was not entitled  any proportion of the sums received from  such licenses.  License Commissioners Meeting.  A meeting of the board of license com-'  missioners was held this afternoon. The  applications of (X Lund, Richardson 6c  Perdue, and Prank J. Donley for licenses  were laid over. The application) of Calkin  6c Smart i'or a transfer of their saloon  license to S. P. Cordingly, went over till  the next meeting, as the legal requirements had not been complied with. A.  If. Clements asked for a license to enable  him to dispose of his stock, and  P. A. Tamblyn asked for a license  for what was formerly Ike JIol-  den's saloon. Both were refused.  A bottle license was granted to P. A. Rus-  sell. A complaint was lodged with the  commissioners against the manner in  which the Victoria hotel was conducted.  The proprietor of the hotel will be required to appear before the commissioners at their next meeting on September  15th in answer to the same.

Moreton Frewen has sent a very interesting letter to judge Goodwin of Salt  Lake, upon the subject of bimetalism and  the advancement which the American  commissioners have:made and are making with the European powers. When  the com missioners started upon their mission, Frewen did not attach much importance to their mission. For this reason the  tone of his letter is the more significant.  He says:  Vou see, our people have never had any  particular respect for your financial methods; indeed, why should they !   Thus the  movement of a great nation: the bimetalism of Bryan, the bimetalism of McKinley  had quite failed to impress us.   But this  quite unexpected movement toward free  coinage by Prance hascome as a bolt from  blue. French finance has always appeared  to   us wholly  admirable.   That thrifty,  conservative France should adopt the attitude, that the two great republics could  ��� safely "go it alone," if our Indian mints  reopened, and if Berlin would  agree to  take a   little   silver   annually,  and   sell  none���it is hardly possible to overrate the  moral ��� effect   of   such  a development as  this.   It is not America then that is dragging forward an unwilling Prance; it i.s  rather Prance that is about to become the  target of your gold press!   When Wolcott  returned from France 'last February aud  declared  that Meline, the French prime  minister, was  in  a likely, mood, he said  very little more, and the thing seemed to  ns wholly improbable.    But here is baron  Courcel, the French embassador, collaborating with your men at every step, and  Meline declared to a friend the other day.  "If we (the government) are  put out because of our support of silver, we shall  not be out long."    You  can then imagine  the surprise of our people at the attitude  of the French ministry.    Bryan, we were  told, was a low fellow: he was a ''repudi-  ntor"���a "fifty-cent-dollar" man; but here  is a French government  working quietly  for a  "forty-five-cent" dollar, for a ratio  of 1 tolai, and our press, in dumb surprise,  has not yet found any adjectives.  It is strange that the member of this  cabinet from whom the least was hoped,  sir Michael Beach, the chancellor of the  exchequer, is apparently the most anxious  of all to help things forward to a speedy  settlement: while on the other hand that  member whose speeches iu the past have  done the most to arouse public opinion  here, to the great dangers impending, is  today making all the trouble within the  cabinet. I refer to Mr. Goschen, who was  the chaucellor of the exchequer in lord  Salisbury's former government. It was  this same Mr. Goschen who, when representing this government at the monetary  conference in Paris in 1S7S, said:  "The general effort which would be  made on every hand to get rid of the  white metal might occasion the greatest-  disorders in the economic world and  produce a crisis more disastrous than  any within the memory of men." It was  he also who described the gold mono-  metalic theory as "uiisehevious" and  " Utopian." It is not amazing that when  by consent of other nations, we are to  have gold here, if we rigidly demonetize  gold in India, making India still the free  silver "sink"���is it not amazing that Mr.  Goschen, who has brought us all to recognize the shoals we are running on, should  now be apparently unnerved 'and vasodilating; determined to discover imaginary  difficulties and to invent dangers ?���  Bimetalism at 1 to 15_ ! That, is rupee  exchanges at ten to the sovereign; the  tael and the yen'and all the exchanges  with S00,00(),000 of Asiatics deprived of  the present gold premium of 100 per cent.  This' seems to be too good to be true.  Commercially it means a new haven and  a new earth; a far better world tomorrow  for all the white races. It is better not  to anticipate such blessing as near at  hand : but I do feel, after a period of despondency, that perhaps the very last  chapters of this strange history of finaji-  cial anarchy, which dates back to 187.'',  are even now being written.

Cornwall, secretary of the Denver  Fire Clay company, of Denver, Colorado,  was in Nelson this week. He is on a vacation trip, having left Denver about the  1st of July. Speaking in a general way,  he said that times were good in Colorado:  that farmers and stock raisers and gold  miners were prospering, while silver  miners were making a living only. Froin  observations, he believed this was a mineral country with a great future.  .James Madden, a new arrival in Nelson,  was assessed $7> ancl costs or 10 days imprisonment with hard labor by magistrate  Crease this morning. Madden created a  disturbance by being drunk on Baker  street.  It. \V. llaunington of St. John, New  Brunswick, arrived in the city this week.  Like the majority of the residents of Nelson, Harrington is a lawyer, lie has  taken an office on Victoria street for the  present..  Mrs. Simons, a widow living in the rear  of the Vienna bakery, lost a small pocket  book on Victoria street. It contained .21,  and ns this sum represents all that: the  loser had for the support of her children,  she would be grateful if the finder would  return the same to her.  The contractors for the water works are  making good progress. They have the  excavation for the Hume nearlycompletcd.  The Clilei' Commissioner Says that the Government Policy was Reversed Last Session.  Hon. G. 13. Martin was in Grand Forks  last week,- when he talked over railway  matters with the people of that town.  The Miner publishes an account of the  commissioner's remarks, and unless (���'. li.  Martin takes it into his head to deny that  he made any such remarks, considerable  interest will attach to them. According  to the Miner, he said:  "Regarding the railway policy of the  government, he would say,, that it was  doing everything in its power to hasten  the construction of the line through this  district. During the last session of the  legislature, Mr. Turner and the members  of his cabinet had prepared measures, the  main object of which was to aid the construction of a road between the Columbia  river and Penticton: this measure provided for a cash bonus of $1000 a mile to the  company building the road, provided it  was completed within two years from tho  passage of the act. The bill had been  practically killed by an amendment  tacked on by Mr. Graham, the member  from this constituency. This amendment  provided that in the event that Mr. Heinze  accepted the $'1000 a mile, he would forfeit his laud grant. To the surprise of  everybody, this amendment carried."  If G. B, Martin was truthful he. would  have stated that wheu the premier announced his railway policy he had not  sufficient courage to say whether or not  F. Aug. Heinze would be allowed to retain both the hind subsidy and the cash  subsidy. Me could have informed the  people of Grand Forks that the legislature  had no confidence in the government in  its dealings with F. Aug. Heinze, and that  for this reason the majority in the legislature voted for the amendment moved  by Mr. Graham. In making the statement which he did at Grand Forks, il. Ii.  Martin has put premier Turner in a bad  position. He says in short, that it was  the government's policy that Heinze  should have both land and cash subsidies.  He further says that the legislature rejected the government's policy, ff this  were so why did not premier Turnert  Resign?    THIRTY-THREE   CENTS   PER   DAY  JAMES   WOODS   EXECUTED.  Is  the   Munificent   Reward   "Which  the  Court  Pays Jurors in Kootenay.  There are ten very mad men in the eity  today. They were in attendance on the  county court for three days this week, and  when they were finally dismissed this  morning they were tendered88A cents per  day for their services, These j rate jurors-  were A. H. Clements, Jack Kirkpa trick,  T.B. May, George Stead, James Macdonald, Jerry Robilliard, T. A. Mills, Jacob  Dover, Charles Macdonald and II. Du-  harnel. They were summoned in connection with the case of Ross vs C. P. it. company, an action brought by Ross against'  ths railway company for $1,000 damages  for injuries received on the company's  railway during the month of May.  In such cases the.party making the application for a special jury deposits $20  with the court. Of this'amount $5 goes  to deputy sheriff Robinson for his trouble  in summoning the jurors. When the case  comes on for trial five of the jurors are  called upon to try the case and receive $2  each aud the other five receive $1 each.  In.this case none were called, as the defendants secured an adjournment till the  next court. There was, therefore, but  $1.0 to divide among 10 men for three  days' attendance upon the court, which  properly divided, gave each juror .'18/,  cents per day.  When Judge Forin announced to the  jurors that their remuneration would be  88/: cents per day A. If. Clements entered  a protest against being paid Chinese  wages for services, but Judge Forin replied that he was powerless to allow them  any more. He was convinced that the  jurors were not reciving fair remuneration for their services, but as the payment  was fixed he could not alter the amount.  He suggested that the jurors send u joint  communication to the attorney-general  upon the subject. The jurors decided to  refuse the payment offered and will communicate with attorney-general . li'berts  upon the subject.  John Scoley's Case Adjourned.  The case against John Scoley, arrested  upon a warrant for breaking a lock anil  chain'upon the gate of the Nelson Klectric  Light- company's Hume, wa.s adjourned  till Tuesday at 2 o'clock by magistrate  Crease. The complaint in the case is laid  by John Houston, president of the light  company. As Scoley wa.s acting under  instructions from the Hall Mines company  in breaking, the lock anrl chain, he is generally looked upon as a victim'of circumstances.

Woods Dies "Without  Making- any Statement. ���  James Woods was hanged in the,jail  yard Wednesday morning. The crime  for .which Woods paid the extreme.'penalty of the law wa.s committed in this  city on the night of October 2nd. Woods  was a crook, and on the night of October  2nd he entered the blacksmith shop of  S. M. Woods on Josephine street for the  purpose of stealing tools: The blacksmith  heard the man in the shop and made au  attempt to capture him. To make his  escape James Woods shot S. M. Wood**  through the right lung, from the effects  of which the blacksmith died on the foi- ���  lowing Monday.  From the time of his arrest the murderer did not betray the slightest .feeling.  In the jail yard Wednesday morning he  was apparently less concerned than any  other person present. He went to the  scaffold with a,firm step. He took the  position assigned him on the trap and ran  his eye up the scaffold to see that he was  fairly under the fast end of the rope. He  shook hands with deputy sheriff Robinson -  and the other officials with a smile on his  face. A' few seconds before the trap  was sprung superintendent Hussey asked  Woods whether he had anything to say  but he replied in the negative.  The executioner, was a Calgary man  and he performed his work satisfactorily.  He gave Woods a drop'of seven feet aiid  death was, instantaneous, the neck being  broken." There was no clergyman present  at the execution. It was the murderer's  wish that noue should be present. The  body was buried in the jail yard in a  large quantity of lime.  The full court was unanimous in its refusal to grant a new trial. The prisoner's  counsel argued that the deposition of the  murdered man should not have been admitted. Chief justice Davie held that the  deposition was admissable, and irrespective of it there-was abundant evidence  against, the prisoner. He agreed with .  justice Walkem. the trial judge, in every  particular. Justices McCreightand Drake  were of the same mind as the chief justice. -  They held that there had beeu no "miscarriage of justice, aud that therefore there  could be no new trial.  Japan's Formosan Policy.  Japan proposes to build 12.000 miles of  railroad in Formosa, partly as a means of  subduing the wild tribes and partly to  facilitate the trade of the islands. Formosa lies off Amoy, China, about ninety  miles. It is just off the coast where it  bends rapidly to the west and is within a  degree of the latitude of Hawaii, it contains about 10,000 squam mile-, that is, it  is one-third the size of New York or one-  fifth the size of Utah. A range of mountains divides the island north aiid south  nearly in the center, and the east side is  peopled by savages. The Japanese have  dropped upon the fact that the best possible missionary to send into a savage domain is the locomotive. There are-'-'50,000  people on the island and it produces, tea,  rice, camphor, corn, sugar, tobacco, cinnamon, pepper and all manner of tropical  fruits. Japan will make a good ''country  of it. __      _���:_ _.  Experiment in Deep Mining.  Although gold miuiug has been carried  on in Nova Scotia for many years, no  great depth has been reached in the workings. The deepest shaft at present "'is* 000  feet, and there are very few down more  than 100 feet. It has been questioned considerably by the mining men of the province whether deeper mining would pay,  and this has been argued from several different point's of view. The question is  now to be settled in at least one case by  a practical test, the Guffey-.Jennings company, having'.let a contract to sink its  main shaft to a depth of 1000 feet. The  result will have.much local interest.  The Canyon Creek Strike.  The Kootenaian: A strike officii ore  is reported from Canyon creek, a tributary to Crawford creek. It i.s a galena  ore full of copper sulphides. Assays "of  samples said to be an average of the sixteen inch pay-streak, gave the following  results: Silver 110 ounces, copper Hi per  cent, lead 80 per cent, and gold $1.10. The  lead is 22 inches wide, and has been traced  about 1000 feet across the claims. The  formation is slate both sides. D. Todd.  .Mike Johnson, G. C. Sprague, L. L. Workman and Rand Macdonald are the owners  of. the group, which was located June l!>th,  and is known as the Silver Hill.  Says Silver Will Go to 40 Cents.  Director of the I'nited States miut Preston announces that the price of silver bullion makes the commercial ratio between  silver and gold 8(5 to 1, and predicts that  within six months silver will fall to 10  cents an ounce. He estimates that the  world's production of gold this year will  be about $210,000,000, of which the I'nited  States will contribute about $00,000,000.  The Miner Changes Hands.

with" the Xelson 6c Port Sheppard Railway
company that many people have come to
thcconclusion that the chief aim of the
department is to enable J). C. Corbin to
secure crown lands in the easiest manner

to IX C. Corbin, but. it is questionable
whether the jumpers of the V'mir town-

Tit eke are few people who will regret
the retirement of l.dgar Dewdney from
the officii of lieutenant governor. He has
had a peculiar conception of the duties of
his office. They were over subordinate
to his private interests. If he imagined
he could turn a trick in any part of the
province he made it a. point of getting
there, and his official duties were left unattended till his return. The province is
very tired of liclgjii" Dewdney. His retiring will be the most satisfactory
move he can make.
Colonel Baker i.s not held in high regard in his own constituency. The Fort
Steele Prospector in a recent issue says:
"We are of the opinion that colonel
" Baker, since he became a representative
" of this constituency, has feathered his
" nest pretty well at the expense of the
" public, and it is our intention, so far as
" lies within our power, that that .sort of
" thing shall stop."
_3-_r~"L_^_*Vv*"   INTO.  18.
The coast papers have at last wakened
up to the tact that the provincial government, in granting  lands  to the Nelson 6c
.   Fort Sheppard    Railway  Company,  has
altogether ignored  the  express orders of
the legislature.   Th_ Triruni-: has contended for the past three years that such
■was the case  but there was  not a single
member of the legislature with sufficient
courage and   brains to secure an investigation into the merits of the charge.   The
Titiut'NE has  no   sympathy   with   J.   L.
Parker and his associates who attempted
to jump the townsite of Ymir held by the
Nelson  &  Port Sheppard  Railway Com-
pauy, but they have  rendered the  province a service in  that they have directed
public attention to the very questionable
manner in which the lauds anil works department has granted  land to  the  railway company without requiring tiie performance of the conditions imposed  by
the legislature.'   It is  said  that. Par Iceland   his   associates   will   appeal   to   the
supreme  court of Canada if necessary.
For the reason  that there are  few who
have   any  confidence   whatever  in   the
present provincial  ministers it is to be
hoped   that such a step  will  be  taken.
When a cabinet for the sake of pleasing
a railway company violates the express
orders of the legislature the electors may
well be excused for  any uneasiness   in
speculating as to the ministers' motive.
In his last issue the editor of the Fort
Steele  Prospector takes judge Forin to
task for not visiting the Fort Steele town-,
site.    The editor admits that there were
no cases for trial, but he diolds that this
was not a sufficient reason for the nonappearance of the judge.   As it is evident
that the pride of the Fort Steele man has
•   been  hurt, The Tribune will  be doing
him a kindness iu assuring him that judge
Forin spent three days in Spokane in the
vain endeavor to make steamboat connection at Jennings for the purpose of reaching Fort Steele.  The best connection that
could  be  made would   have landed  the
judge in Fort Steele after the date set for
the   court.   This   circumstance,   coupled
with the fact that there were no cases for
trial aud that the registrar had  not then
been appointed, prompted judge Forin to
postpone what promised to  be a holiday
trip.- Judge Forin is too busy attending
to legal work in West Kootenay to make
pleasure excursions into  Kast Kootenay.
J". Ii. J'akkkr and his associates in  the
jumping of .the  Vmir townsite, tire  putting up a big legal fight for the possession
of Vmir.    The case has a deep interest for
the people of this province for the reason
that it gives promise of securing a searching enquiry into   the  manner  in  which
premier Turner and  his colleagues have
carried out the instructions of the legislature with  respect to the Nelson  6c Fort
Sheppard Railway company's land grant.
Jt does not matter very much to the people of British   Columbia   whether IX  C.
Corbin secures the townsite  of Ymir, or
whether it falls to the jumpers, but they
have very great interest  in  seeing that
the statutes passed by the legislature tire
observed by the ministers of the crown
ft i.s a matter of common knowledge that
the  provincial   government  has  not  observed   the   conditions   imposed    by  the
legislature in the Nelson 6c Fort, Sheppard

And," remarked  the frontier preacher, rejecting Mr. Dan  Daly'.-- well meant invitation and accept-  ing'a cigar from colonel Dropper instead,  ������J am not, aware that Moses brought down  from, Sinai auy graven ; commandments  against impropriety. .Manners" are. not  morals by a long'.-hot, if J may be permitted,  the   expression.    These friends  and  '.-occasional parishoners of mine, now seeking their fortunes in the Klondyke, write  me that a -inn nl i Ice myself is sorely needed  there, ami that, they agree to grub-stake  me, and hold a claim for me against my  'coming.''-'They are good enough to .-ay  that a desire for my society is parinount  to their wish for tin elevating influence iu  the frozen and tiresome region. Their report as to the richness of the diggings is  certainly inspiring. There is every likelihood that I should make my pile."  "Then   why  in   the  name of common  sense don't you go, parson?" inquired the  barkeeper... "I'd jump at the chance."  "Because," responded Dr. McWhacker,  . "two potent reasons restrain i.e... The  first is that as pastor of Tombstone's Independent Centennial church I have a  charge which ought to be satisfactory to  a man of my years. It is true that the  camp has run down and the congregation  diminished, but the support continues  fairly good and I have acquired property  interests in Tombstone which need my  personal supervision. The opera house is  in itself an in comeif properly looked after.  But my chief reason is die prevalence of  the tenderfoot in the Klondyke. J. am  weary of the tenderfoot, gentleman, and  shrink from going where he forms the  overwhelmingly majority of ..the population. A daily reading of the news from  and about this new strike reveals to me  what a missionary who ventures there  must expect. I see that they already have  ' dance houses and that.gambling i.s going  on.    Dear, dear, but its depressing."  ���'Miners   will   be miners," philosophized  the barkeeper.  "That is what J dread, young man,"  said Dr. McWhacker, with energy.  "Granted that I accept this call, to which  I am giving the prayerful consideration  due it, and what happens? I arrive at  Dawson, and no sooner am I ashore than,  weather permitting, I encounter a man iu  a red Manuel shirt, with a pistol hanging  in his belt. His trousers are tucked into  his bootlegs and a great slouch hat flaps  about his ears. He says whar aud that-  and calls me pardner as he slaps me ou  the back and invites me to come and liquor  up. Yet, gentlemen, that man may have  been", and most probably was, a, dry goods  clerk in Brooklyn but a few months before, or a plodding mechanic, or an overworked car-driver in some small city of  the corn-fed middle west, where nothing  happens to anybody and where nobody  gets much of anything for what he .-doe's  for ten and twelve hours a day. Its all  drudgery and sordid commonplace, and  very melancholy to think of, for human  life is short and ought to have more in it  for industry than the privilege of keeping'  alive. ' ' ,  "But take a meager man of this kind,  ���gentlemen, and put him in a mining camp  where any fool may become rich in a day  and the most sensible of men remain poor,  and it turns his head. Whatever imagination he has takes fire. He's an escape  from the,jail of narrow, settled conditions,  and has been fired by the cannon of luck  into a freedom that is gorgeous. For the  first time in his life he's free to do a.s he  chooses, and he chooses to have fun. the  poor, starved, brainless sinner. There's  nothing so easy for brains and enterprise  to organize as a saloon and a gambling  game and a dance house. That's why  they're so soon found in a new mining  camp. They're the cheapest snares that  capital can set to catch game, and there  are those who have so corrupted the  tenderfoot in advance that at the very  i im. he's submit!ing himself to the snarer  he is filled with an.'exultant, ,-ense of being tin admirable fellow���a gay and dashing and picturesque manly being, calculated to inspire with envy the onlooker,  lay or clerical.    Oh, I know him !  "The corrupters of tin- tenderfoot are  the writers he has read. The boys who  have sent me thi< (-all to Klondyke may���  I say it with regret���now and again patronize the pleasures ol" the camp with au  enthusiasm surpassing that of the tenderfoot, but they know what they a re about���  that .the bar ancl the faro bank and the  dance house represent in.reality only self-  indulgence aud debauchery, of which  they're ashamed when they've given a  run to the beast thai; most men know is  caged.inside of them. They don't identify  themselves with the heroes of Bret Hart's  stories or poultice, their consciences with  Joaquin Miller's poems. They're entirely  alive to the face that,gamblingand drinking and the rest of it amounts simply to  tolly and degredation. Jt is possible to  save the soul of an oldtimer like this, because he's dropped on himself, but the  tenderfoot is too hard a game for me iu  my old age. Time was, gentlemen, when  J labort .1 with him patiently and kindls',  but now he moves me to anger and a desire tu employ,language not befitting my  profession."  "He  affects  nie  to  kicks," said colonel  Dropper.  "iret, doubtless," wont on Dr. McWhacker, after refreshing himself, "when  profoundly considered, an imitation sinner is more to be pitied than a real one.  He's got so much to go through before he  comes to his waking up place and being  moved to adopt the only happy life���that  of virtue. Nevertheless, 1 think it requires  a man of less experience with real miners  than myself to do effective work among  the heterogenous and too-fresh elements  of the Klondyke. By such an one the  tenderfoot can be taken seriously, and  dealt'with profitably, perhaps, in his  moments of remorse, which occur when  he's broke and humblingly conscious of  the recent dry goods counter and horse-  car. In these blessed moments he realizes  tliat, romance writers and poets to the  contrary, miners are nota distinct race of  men, that they do not speak a special language and are not ignorant of civilization,  find that" a man who'during all his best  years .-in- Brooklyn has said where and  there needn't say whar and thai- merely  because he's changed his clothes and place  of residence and- stands a chance of making a stake.  "I comprehend," remarked Dr. McWhacker, as he arose to go up town to  dinner with colonel Dropper, and surveyed  the respectful cafe with a benignant smile,  "I comprehend that there are plenty of  fools everywhere, but new kinds tire one  leys than old kinds, and the prospect of  going iuto a country swarming with tuen  who i)-i ve cast themselves for the part of  the red-shirted and hairy miner they've  read about does, I confess, repel me. Of  course I shall follow where the lightl ever  seek may lead, but, as at present.minded,  I don't think I shall accept this call to the  Klondyke, pressing and flattering as it is.  Gentlemen, have one with tne before we  separate."  E  On account, of --leaving town I herewith oiler for sale  my furniture and household goods. Kveiything in g-ood  condition.

The Charleston Mining company has  been   incorporated   for   the   purpose   of  ��� working' the Charleston claim in tiie  Whitewater basin in tho Slocan. The  company is .capitalized tit ..J. 0,000 in   ,1  i   shares.   - ���  -��� The Western Canadian Gold Fields,  Limited, is the name of a company recently incorporated i'or .25.000. The head  offices of this concern will be in this city.'  The full court last, week reversed the  judgment of judge Forin in" tJie case ol'  Madden v. Nelson tt Fort Sheppard rail-  ��� way. The Maddens had two horses killed  on the Nelson 6c Fort Sheppard railway  track, and sued bli�� railway company for  damages. .Judge Form held chat the railway company was liable in t_iau.it. had  neglected to comply'with the provincial  statute requiting it to fence in its right-  of-way. The full court reversed this decision upon the ground that the Nelson 6c  Fort Sheppard railway having been declared a work for the general advantage  ot Canada, was subject only to the Dominion rail way act with respect to fencing. In Canada, when a road i.s declared  for the general advantage of the Dominion, the company owning it is not only  enabled to keep its construction contractors out oi their money, but it apparently  has a license to kill anyone's live stock  without making compensation for the  ��� same.   ���  TJie property of the J [all Mines on Toad  mountain had a close call from forest fires  on Tuesday evening. "A change in the  wind followed by a severe rain storm  saved.the property from destruction. At  one time the superintendent had several  wagons ready for the removal of the  women and children, and a telephone  message was sent to this city for additional, wagons, but when they arrived  the danger had passed.  The wife of E. Miller of Kossland, died  at the Phair hotel Wednesday morning.  The deceased was married but two weeks  ago and was stricken down with typhoid  fever while ou her honeymoon.  Alderman Malone was charged before  magistrate Crease on Tuesday with violating the fire limits by-law, which he assisted in framing. The complaint in the  case was laid by A. II. Matheson. At the  request of the defendant's counsel the  case was enlarged till Monday.  . It is rumored that W. F. Thompson, of  the Nelson Miner aud Trail Creek News,  has sold his paper and plant in Trail and  will concentrate his energies on his property in Nelson.  The following advice from an old poultry man may interest some of our readers  who may be anxious to know how to keep  their neighbor's hens outof their gardens.  Well, friends, take a lot of small, stilt  cards about one by two inches, write on'  them "Please keep your darned old hens  at home," tie a short string to each card  with a grain of corn at the other end of  the string, and scatter these where the  the hens congregate. When the hungry  biddy gobbles up the grain that draws  the prize, she follows up the string, stowing it away until she comes to the card,  then you will see her pull-out for home,  carrying in her mouth your polite request.  Try it, brother, and let us know how it  works. ,  Tom Claridge, formerly of Kaslo, now  of Toronto, is suing the British Canadian  Gold Fields Exploration 6c Investment  company for $7500, which he claims is the  balance due him for the purchase of a  mining claim by the company.  The residents of Sandon are endeavoring to secure the incorporation of their  town. Like every other community in  the iuterior, Sandon has grown tired of  the provincial government's administration. Since the .government has issued  letters of incorporation to the people of  Greenwood, it is not likely that the peo-  N pie of Sandon will have any difficulty in  securing the incorporation of their city.  J. M. Harris, one of the largest owners of  Sandon realty, is iu favor of incorporation.  The appointment of O. G. Dennis to the  office of gold commissioner was not gazetted last week for the reason that the occupant of the office could not be induced  to resign to make room for his successor.  , This difficulty has since been overcome,  aud Thursday's Gazette will no doubt contain a notice ot the appointment.  Robert Wood wa.s elected mayor of  Greenwood by acclamation ou Saturday.  Fight nominations were made for aldermen, and a poll for the election of six will  be taken today. The candidates are  Leonard S. Moulton Barrett, broker; Cyril  J. Kales, hotel keeper; C. Scott Galloway,  engineer; John Hammil, miner; Archie C.  McKenzie merchant: Michael J. J. belan,  merchant; J. W. Powell, miner: Arthur  Rendell, merchant.  Chief of police Woolverton failed to  secure a conviction against either Kred  Hurry or Dago J3III for the part they  played in the light on Baker street on  Wednesday last. The case against Hurry  was lirst taken up. In this case it was  shown tluit Dttgo Bill was the aggressor  in, the fight, and Hurry's case was dismissed. Up to this point everyone was  satisfied that there had been a fight and  that Dago Bill wa.s the chief offender, but  when the evidence in the second case was  all iu, the conditions had changed somewhat.

The offertories at the services will be given to the  building fund of the new church, work on  which will probably be commenced very  shortly.  On Sunday the steamer Alberta cleared  from Kaslo for. Fve-mile point with 7)88  tons of ore.  It comprised 20 consignments,  In order .to sell what Shirt Waists we have left in Stock,  we have reduced same to .  75,$100, $1.25  WORTH $1.25, $1.75, $2.00  ranging- from 30,000 to 100,000 pounds.  The customs valuation of this one-shipment wa.s $8��,592, or an average of about  $ OS per ton.' The .-hiptueut was made up  of ore from 15 different mines.'  ,On Sunday morning there will be a  special service at the Roman Catholic  church, where a mass, written expressly  for the occasion, will be performed. The  choir will be reinforced by several members of the Church of England. In the  evening the principal singer in the Roman  Catholic choir will sing at the Church of  England Harvest Festival.  The Loudon correspondent of the Ross-  laud Miner says: The shipment of copper  from the Hall Alines is at Liverpool, and  I understand it is the intention of the  company, to sell it if possible in small parcels, in 'order that it may become more  generally known. They are very doubtful  if they will obtain a price which will  prove remunerative.  O. G. Dennis, gold commissioner, was  removed to a private hospital this week.  It is thought that Dennis is in for a siege  of the fever.  Sanitary inspector Wolley says that the  seriousness of the typhoid fever epidemic  at Slocan City has been much exaggerated.  There were never more than 19 cases, and  this number has been since reduced by  deaths. The presence of the fever is altogether due to the wilful neglect of the  people of the, commonest rules of sanitation.  United States editors are advising  alien miners to resist Canadian tyranny  on the Klondyke. If the miners were as  far away from possible danger as the  editors are, they might do some resisting,  and if the editors were as near the sight  of a Canadian uniform as the miners are,  they would do a good deal of submitting.
