To thu Kiiitoi- oi* Tiik Tkiiiunic: In what year did  the United Slates purchase Alaska; under whieh administration; and what was the purchase price? Is AlasUaa  a territory, and if so why is it not allowed a delegate in  congress as are other territories? By answering above  queries vou will confer a favor on  TWO ISOLATKD RKADKRS.  [A hi skit, was ptirch'isecl in I SOT, during  president'. .Johnson's iiclininsftrtition, tit the  price of.' $7,200,000, tind wtis formally taken  possession of on October ISth of that year.  For the following ten years it was under  military government). For the next four  years its native population were kept in  subjection by the navy. In August, 1SSI.  the white residents held m convention and  sent a delegate, mimed D. M. Hall, to  Washington. In .May. 188-1. a territorial  government was established, the lirst  governor being .John II. Kinkead. who Intel  been governor of'Nevada. District courts  were then established tit .Sitka and Wran-  gle.and the laws of Oregon extended to the  territory. The territory is not considered  of sufficient importance to entitle it to  either a delegate in congress or a territorial legislature.���FniToii Tuihl'XK.J  Steamboat News.  The Lytton came down to I.obson today and was to return north l<Yiday  iiiorning. She gets tis far up iJie Columbia  a.s Cariboo bar, which is six miles below  the "green slide." The sleigh road from  the "'slide" to the head of the lake is yet  unused because of the river not being froze  over at the point where the rotul crosses  it. The Columbia will continue running  between the mouth of the Kootenay iind-  Northport until regular train service is  established on the Nelson Ac Fort Sheppard. which will be about the l.th. Reports from Bonner's Ferry are thtit the  Kootenay i.s not closed at that place, but  steamboat owners are not inclined to take  any chances ancl the Bonner's Ferry route  will remain closed until spring.  Has One Good Quality.  The Miner of last week litis another off  its little flings tit.J. M. Kellie, who. luckily  for the people, was elected to the legislative assembly from West Kootenay in  1SSM). Whatever failings Mr. Kellie'may  Ii��.ve'*he cannot be charged with being  either a self-seeker or a, blatherskite or a  passive nonentity. lie i.s ,not a brilliant  debater or a shrewd wire-puller or a hard  drinker or a skillful poker player; but he  is ti Canadian.  All Alike.  It cannot but be denied that, of late,  the newspapers in southern Kootenay  have been uninteresting; but they are not  more so than those of other sections of the  province. Of the 113 papers received by  Tin-: Triih'XI1* in the last mail, not one  contained an item worth reprinting.  "Work Resumed on the Poorman.  Men have again been placed on the  Toorman mine, six miles southwest of  Nelson, in order to get ore on hand for a  long mill run iu the spring, when the  water supply is ample to run the mill  night and day. There is about three feet  of snow tit the mine.  A Strange Coincidence.  Tiik Thiri-xi-; is iii receipt of the first  number of the Wallace ("Idaho) Tinies  and the one hundred iind first number of  the ColviIle( Washington ) Index. Strange!  as it may appear, both papers contain  the same reading matter, word for word,  on the two outside pages.  Will Build a Concentrator.  The lessees of the Number One mine at  Ainsworth are making preparations to  build a concentrator at that mine. Lumber for the flume wtis shipped this week  from Buchanan's mill at Kaslo. and it is  understood the flume will be builtnt once.  Three Social Events.  Thursday last was a great day in Kaslo.  First, there was a house party at I). I*.

The syndicate that recently ac(|iiircd  placer ground on Forty-nine creek, eight  miles from Nelson, is asking sawmill  owners for figures on 70,(HX> I'eet of lumber,  to ho delivered at Nelson before Christmas.  letter,   unsigned,    published  with some criticisms in your last week's  issue, concerning the Kootemiy Lake General Hospital. ��� The writer of the letter is  evidently our missing director from Ivaslo,  and who has, I am glad to see, suddenly  developed, a stirring interest in the institution, and being, imbued with a spirit of  philantrophy,   I am somewhat surprised  that   lie did not address   himself to  the  society.    To do justice to this gentleman's  general intelligence and ability to keep in  touch with public matters going on in the  district,   it   might   be  assumed   tha.t  he  should be fully acquainted with the personality of the board of directors,  as he  himself is one of them.    Knowing  this,  and not having resigned, the rest of the  board might naturally expect some interest and   influence  from him. and should  lie noli have heard of his co-directors,  it  w<*is   no   very great   task  iu  one of his  journeyings  to and   from  Nelson  to discover   with   whom   lie    was   associated.  Some men would, if from no other motive  than curiosity, have gleaned this information.   As  far tis  the general  public are  concerned in not knowing, I give tit leitst  a majority of them the credit of reading  Nelson  papers occasionally,  iind  its  this  institution, its officers, and doings, have  had mention made of  them ;t number of  times during   the  past six  months, they  could hardly fail to have noticed it.  Some time ago, a number of men chosen  as being representative of Kaslo tind  Ainsworth were communicated with.  Some took no notice: others replied that  "they considered it a Nelson institution  ancl should be supported by thtit section."  Now this sectional feeling in this matter  is unfortunate, and I feel confident will  die out when it is seen that every town  in the district cannot support a hospital.  Practical men know full well the difficulties of public hospitals from the largest  to the smallest of communities. The  ways of: a hospital board are like those id-  lotted to the transgressor, tind the endless repetition of the word "debt" in connection with hospitals i.s always comforting to a new institution, and those connected with it are forced to plead poverty  with., the .unwearying persistence of the  importunate widow of Scripture.  ���^"Irha-i-Ot-been -found impossible "to live  in this section without a hospital--and on  opening one the directors sire'anxious to  at least start without debt. Most .people  are aware.-of the difficulty in getting  money, together, and this seriously hampers the institution. The directors find it  a thankless task continually "'dunning"  for money promised when thiit needful  seemed more plentiful, iind especially  more difficult at this season of the year.  If our critics would .spend theirsuperfiuous  energies in-assisting instead of "kicking,"  ti disease so contagious in this section, the  difficulties might be lessened.  I_vcry effort is being made to secure cooperation,' but in most quarters it is a  matter of indifference; interest, like the  season, is dormant. As soon as the government grant i.s received the hospital', is  ready to take care of any case that may  arise. The first claim to hospital treatment is proved- necessity, outside of subscribers or pay patients; but I feel sure  that the people of Nelson iire not willing  alone to take care of the sick from all  four quarters of the district unless the  oth er th reeqiiarters con tribute some thing.  So far, nearly every dollar contributed or  promised has come from Nelson aud immediate vicinity, and when the government grant is received it is hard to see  how cases of pure necessity can be refused, no matter from what quarter of the  district they may come. Therefore, I  think the directors can hardly be blamed  "to make haste slowly," ami try to get  some resourses 'ahead. This is slow and  difficult tit this season. We have already  tiiken care of one case for over four  months.  A general appeal is being made to the  whole district, and in the meantime, from  the commencement of next week, the hospital, will be ready aud willing to look  after proper cases from this section, those  who subscribe iind those who without  such aid. would ha ve nothing l.o help I him 1  but vis inedieatrix ntitura-. but it must  he clearly understood it is not a poor house,  nor an institution I'or "'alcoholic- dys-  pepsy." nor for those' who arc sick from  " wa i ting- for-somet hii ig-to-tui 11-up."

The townsite occupies an  area of   about  fifty   acres,   compactness  being aimed at rather than extent. The  climate is very fine and the situation of  the town is beautiful in every respect.  Nakusp lies upon a gentle .slope which  rises from the margin of the lake, and on  all .ides tower the mountain peaks thousands of feet above the water level. .Mr.  Loewen found the mining population remarkably peaceable tind well conducted,  quite different from the conventional conception of the species."

At   Colville,   Washington,   hist   week,  died the  boy that  discovered   the  great  Silver King mine, for the honor of its discovery  belongs to "Billy"  While.    Like  many    another    discoverer   of    mineral  wealth, he lived not to enjoy the fruits of  his discovery.     Little did  he dream  on  that October day in 1880 that the the piece  of copper pyrites he picked  up  on Toad  mountain, that looked so much like native  gold, would cause him tind his friends so  much  worry iind  trouble.    Little  did   he  imagine!   thtit-   its    finding   would   cause  thousands of men to change their abiding  places only to  make   fruitless search  for  that which lie stumbled against.    For he  was but an unlettered half-breed boy.    In  the seven years that have since elapsed lie  at no time by word or fiction made it appear  that Jiis suddenly-acquired   wealth  placed   him above  those  with   whom   he  came in contact; and no one of the thirteen original owners  worked more faithfully at  the   mine   or   offered    less  complaint    when     vexatious     lawsuits    endangered    their    property    rights.      For,  more than ji  year  he   litis suffered   from  consumption, but when in  Nelson hist he  expected   to   recover.     He  was   aged   21  years.    Enough Said.  Trail. December ..th. 1S!)..

That  the   mail service  given   southern  Kootenay is bad  is admitted by even the  friends   of    postoflice-inspecfor    Fletcher  and   member-of-jiarliament   Alara.     The  officials  of   the  postoffice  department tit  Ottawa admit it is bad. but say it is the  best   that can   be given  i'or the money  available.    This  may   be  a   good   official  excuse, but it is not it good business excuse.    The postoffice is  the  most important department of tlie government: the  only one in which  till the people have an  interest iind from which they require service.    If   the   revenue derived   from  the  side of stamps is not sufficient to pay the  expense  of giving tin adequate    service,  the people would willingly have the deficit  made up from the sums Unit are uselessly  expended by   tin*   public   works   department: they would'be willing even to have  part   of   the  deficit   made   up   from  the  money appropriated to carry  on   the department of militia and defence.    But in  referring to the matter, it is not the object  ol'Tin-* Thihi-xi-:  to do   more  than  show  the  postoflice   department  how it is defrauded out of  large sums  annually by  the publishers of "lake" newspapers tind  periodicals.    No country  is  more  liberal  to the newspaper and periodical  publishers than   the   Dominion of Canada.    The  liberality   goes   so   far its  to .allow  free  transmission toall newspapers and perio-  dicals   mailed   to   regular   subscribers   in  either Canada or the United States.    But  the  department officials   are apparent ly  unable to distinguish between  the  legitimate ncwspiipcrand the "���fake" advertising sheet.    The legitimate   newspaper is  made up of reading matter that is of general interest and of advertisements  that  are intended to be of interest to  the public.    It is not mailed to others than bona  fide subscribers.    The "fake" publication  is made up ofa few paragraphs of miscellaneous reading matter sandwiched in between ad vurtiseinuiits of the wares of the  person (or firm) owning the. publication.  The "fake" publication has no subscribers,  but is mailed to names taken from directories, assessment rolls,-commercial registers,  and  specially   pre]Mired   lists.    A  case in  point:  From time to time this summer residents  ���of Nelson and Ainsworth have received  copies of a publication named .."'The Delineator," the '"Christmas number" of  which is now before us. "The Delineator"  claims to be "a journal'of fashion, culture,  and fine arts." and to be "published  monthly at Toronto by The Delineator  Publishing Company, Limited." In reality it is nothing more than an advertising  pamphlet got up iu the interest of a  firm that furnishes patterns to '.dressmakers,' tind is printed from plates'  sent out from l.nglaiid. The number before us contains over 100 pages...  eighty-odd of .which, are .advertisements of vither "The Delineator Publishing Company" or of the "Butt-crick Publishing Company." The 100-odd pages  weigh half a pound, and as probably ii  hundred thousand are sent through the  mails monthly, the postolliee department  i.s defrauded out of the postage that  should be paid on each one, that is, twe-  cents---iii' .*._l.(M!0a year. "The Delineator"  i.s not the only publication in Canada on  which .postage should be collected : but it  is safe to say that the  lostoflice department  thousands of dollars  it tie more judgment  newspapers and peri-  one of many.

The promoters ol" the Kaslo -.V: Sloc<��ii  rtiilwiiy will have aitoilici' light on theii  hands this winter to prevent the grunting  of chiirters for the construction of rtiil-  ways along Kaslo river. The Canadian  .Pacific, through Bodwell *..

" thence running up the main fork of  " Kaslo creek to Bear hike, thence to a  '���' point at or near the forks of Carpenter  '* creek; with power to build branch lines  "to any mine or mines adjacent to tbe  " line of railway," etc. This simply moans  that the owners of the Kaslo -.'c Slocan  railway must hand it over to the Canadian Pacific on the hitter's, terms, or if  they do nota charter will be obtained for  another road tit the coining session of the  legislature. If the charter is granted���  and no doubt it will--the Kaslo Ac Slocan  people will be unable to enlist capital to  complete their road, its there is not business enough in that section to wan ant  the building of two railways. I tis simply  a case of sell for the Kaslo Ac Slocan, for  the Canadian Pacific is too big a concern  to buck against. That it will be; it good  thing for the Slocan country is doubtful,  for no country lacking iu competitive  transportation facilities can be developed  either rapidly or with profit to the men  who do the developing.  MENTAL   PHOTOGRAPH-".  One Odd. Case of Transference of Sights From  a Distance.  The unusual and unwonted in human  history is always interesting, even if'its  explanation is not invariably forthcoming. Whenever I read of anything of the  kind experienced by an accurate observer  I hope for the explanation of some phenomena or other which, in the hands of  superstitious people, pass muster for revelation:, of tlie mystical, weird iind supernatural side of things. Here is it case, to-  wit: Professor T. Vigoli, an Italian  savant, relates 'that on July 3rd. after a  railway journey, in a bright sun, and two  days' walk in very hot weather, he was in  a room in the company of others. His  eyes fell on a balcony of trellis work iind  ivy brightly illuminated by the sun. In  the balcony was a cage containing- birds  .and the flowering creepers grew upright  in columns, the columns being crossed by  the balcony bars below ancl by sticks  above.  Now, two days thereafter, while in perfect health, the professor .awoke in the  early morning. On the ceiling of his  room, lit by the light coining through the  Venetian blinds of two large windows, he  saw it perfect reproduction of the balcony  and its flowers, colors and all. The impression lasted long enough for him to  look carefully at the .image, which vanished when the professor closed his eyes  and reappeared ou their being opened.  In each eye .the image of the balcony was  represented, and more curious still, a  finger interposed between the eye.a ml the  ceiling intercepted the image, just as it  would have shut oil' the vision of a rea-l  object external to the beholder. The cage  of birds iind its swinging movements were  also reproduced. I'ightly enough, it is  siiid this wiis nota case of ordinary subjective vision that is. of the projection  from the retina of .sonic image proceeding  from the brain. For in the ordinary illusion the image remains present with us  even if the eyes lie closed. Is there, then,  some variety of optical illusion in which  brain and eye together foster more vividly  than is their wont the semblance of external realty? It would seem to be so:  only if anybody but a sober scienl 1st had  placed this incident on record, the niys-  try would at once have seen in the occurrence a proof indisputable of the transference of sights from a distance and t.he  exercise ol' a mysterious telepathic power.  As it is, I suspect it is a ease of mental  photography, intensified, doubtless, under  the physical'conditions of brightness, iiii-  der wh ich thesccne was originally viewed.

The  inspc-ior. concluding that the man was  not insane, came to Seattle a week ago  and sifted the case thoroughly. In all  .Mr. Thrall now has in his possession thirteen postiil cards and several letters sent  out by Blackburn. All of the correspondence, excepting two postals mailed at  Revelstoke.
